    So by now we all know how horrible that Dallas Cowboys offense was last week in their season-opening 13-7 loss to Washington, which could possibly be one of the worst teams in the NFL this year.

    So on the heels of that gem of a performance, some guy in LA has made the claim that Dallas' offense is the second worst in the league, with only the San Francisco 49ers being worse.

    Now, I get it, this is a week to week deal (at least I think so) but before you guys go jumping off the Lake Lewisville Toll Bridge (I'm pretty sure that's high enough), let's just take a quick look at the unit real quick.

    Yeah, they struggled mightily on Sunday night, without question. They couldn't get into any kind of rhythm and the only player that seemed to be on the same page with Tony Romo for most of the game was Miles Austin.

    But come on, let's look at the glass-half-full perspective, one that says the Cowboys were not only without Marc Colombo, which gave way to the Alex Barron experiment, but also without left guard Kyle Kosier, who many claim is the best offensive lineman on the team.

    Both are set to return this week, which should allow Romo more time to look downfield instead of checking down on every route like he had to last week.

    So tap the brakes there, Mr. LA Times paper man.
