Even Rivals Surprised By Cowboys Ineptitude



    Many around Dallas have been left shocked by the stark ineptitude of the Cowboys thus far in 2010: Players, fans, casual bystanders, Jerry Jones. But now, even some of the team’s rivals are finding themselves in disbelief over the 2009 NFC East Champions’ ugly, kind of unthinkable 1-4 start.

    New York Giants’ tight end Kevin Boss was recently asked about the Cowboys’ struggles this season, and expressed a sense of disbelief similar to that of the Metroplex as a whole.

    "Oh, man, I'd be very surprised,” Boss told the New York Post of the Cowboys’ start, via the Dallas Morning News. “I still can't believe they're 1-4 with all the talent they got on that team. Something's not right there, but we definitely know they're still a very good football team."

    The 4-2 Giants, though Boss wouldn’t admit it, could all but end the Cowboys season on Monday night with a victory. Boss disagrees with the statement that a loss Monday would be a so-called “knockout punch” for Dallas, which makes him more optimistic than just about anyone in Dallas, not including those who work at Valley Ranch.

    "It might be too early to call it that, but it definitely would help,” he said.”[It] gives us a great opportunity to put some more distance between the two of us. If we can go there and put them to 1-5 and us go to 5-2, it's going to be very beneficial when we get close to December and January."
