The Cowboys Are in Rare Form



    Your Dallas Cowboys have now lost five straight games.

    The same team that was supposed to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy at its home stadium this year is now 1-7. Awesome.

    Sunday night's embarrassing loss to Green Bay marked the Cowboys' fifth straight loss this season, which also marks the first time since 1989 that the Cowboys lost five straight games. Of course, the 1989 season was 1-15 campaign for the Cowboys in Jimmy Johnson's and Jerry Jones' first year.

    Is this team going to follow in those footsteps? It's highly possible.

    In fact, I'd bet Dallas does not a win another game. The only real chance I see is when Detroit comes to town in two weeks, and only if Matthew Stafford is still injured.

    So, the key question is, who would win between this year's Dallas Cowboys and the 1989 Dallas Cowboys?

    That team had Troy Aikman, at least for part of the season, and Michael Irvin, not to mention Jimmy Johnson.

    That alone would tip the scales to the 1989 team's favor. Those guys were leaders. They wouldn't let anyone quit, which a lot of this year's team has seemingly done.

    Aside from Jay Ratliff, Dez Bryant and probably Jason Witten and Jon Kitna, this team has quit and it's infuriating.

    Michael Jenkins should never play another down of football for the Cowboys.

    At least we have a No. 1 pick to look forward to.
