The hits continue for the Cowboys (and down a long slippery slope)

The run of bad luck continues for Dallas Cowboys. Needing a must-need moral lifting win they end up sinking lower than six feet the team dug below the ground to bury their playoffs shot. Not only they lost to drop 1-5 they happen to lost team leader Tony Romo to a broken clavicle and is likely to be out for the season. Unlike the first five games, the team played terribly putting up no fight til the final five minutes of the game. The only player that shined on the team was rookie Dez Bryant who gave the team much needed points with his three touchdowns. So far the Cowboys is most disappointing team this season. They have a good receiving core and three capable running backs yet they have no idea how to use any players of the system especially the running game. The defense been decent, but non-efficient as it couldn't make stops when it must-needed. The fault lies all above from the players for being careless, the coaches for lack of faith on the players and the plays especially the running game, and all the way up to the front office for not making transaction moves going with unproven players on the line and defense. After so much promise before the season turns out to be a nightmare as their season continues to sink down in despair.

Padding milestone stats doesn't mean anything unless you WIN

Brett Favre padded more to his stats being first quarterback to throw 500 touchdown passes and 70,000 yards on Monday. But all those didn't matter when a very familiar moment happened.

Brett Favre threw an interception to New York Jets cornerback Dwight Lowery who returns it 26 yards for a touchdown clinching a Jets win over the Vikings 29-20. Brett Favre can pile more to his stats but at the end the game he has to look at the scoreboard to see which team won the game. So far four games in the season Brett and the Vikings just won once and that isn't something to brag about at this time of the season.
