    At 1-6, the Dallas Cowboys have little to play for this season other than mere pride. Well, that and a whole lot of money.

    In any case, the mood in the locker room at Valley Ranch has darkened considerably since the earlier stages of the season, when Dallas still had some hope of making a late run at the playoffs. But, according to backup quarterback Jon Kitna, they’re not “depressed.”

    "I think depressed is too dark of a word to use,'' Kitna said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I think certainly surprised that we're in this situation. But realistic that we are in this situation. That's the way I would say it.

    "This league is difficult when you lose a few games in a row because the next one is coming. You don't have a chance to lick your wounds.''
