The lead of the division was on the line.  Neither the defense or the offense were up to the task.  On national TV, the Cowboys played very un-inspired football.  The Giants were a half a step quicker.  They had a better game plan.  They were simply better in all phases of the game.  The Cowboys should be ashamed.  Losing isn’t the problem.  It is not playing like you care that’s the problem.  6 sacks?  4 interceptions?  Give me a break. If they don’t play any better they will be fighting the Redskins to see which team will “win” the cellar of the NFC Easst.  The Panthers (next week’s game) should mop the stadium with the Cowboys if they don’t give a better effort.

Politicians covet them too for their votes. So, many lawmakers initially played along with the segments in which Colbert interviews a member of the House of Representatives, with few checks and balances on his proclivity to make fools of them. Continue reading
