The Cowboys' loss to Indianapolis was bad, but there's no need to give it too much weight

FRISCO -- One player after another took the same, curious stance.Maybe the loss to Indianapolis was for the best. Maybe the Cowboys had gotten a little full of themselves and needed to be knocked down.Ezekiel Elliott went as far as to say the loss "was very much needed,'' a reality check that would work in the team's favor in the grand scheme of this season.After ruminating on the words of Elliott and others, after giving careful consideration to the Cowboys recent level of performance and their current standing in the NFL, an obvious conclusion emerges.What a bunch of bull.There's nothing...

Cowboys game ball: Can there be one after the debacle versus the Colts?

Cowboys game ball: Can there be one after the debacle versus the Colts?

Who can we honor on the Cowboys after a 23-0 shutout? Awful. Just plain awful. Ask any Cowboys fan about the game versus the Colts and that would be the likely answer, once you censored out all of the swearing.

One guy was still a warrior out there and gave it everything he had. Ezekiel Elliott just doesn’t quit. A week after he had 40 touches, he lead the Cowboys on offense, in fact, he was basically their offense. He...
