With Cowboys 1-7, Can “America’s Team” Survive?


With the Cowboys doing all they can to eradicate their proud heritage and reduce themselves to just another Buffalo/Seattle/Cleveland/who cares? franchise, post-game depression is reaching epidemic levels in the home of the former dynasty. I’ve wondered before just how the Boyz have managed to remain a national favorite despite more than a decade of largely mediocre play.

But this 1-7 start  surely must spell the end of the America’s Team mystique. Don’t look for the likes of Tony Romo or Demarcus Ware to show up on the canvases of famous painters, a la the LeRoy Neiman image of Roger Staubach above.

Of course, I said the same thing almost two years ago.
