The Dallas Cowboys open their preseason tomorrow night at Oakland. It makes some sense to head over to DallasCowboys.com for the latest team news.
However, if you visited there at 12:20 a.m. Central time, you would have discovered that the Chicago Bears had taken over the entire site. Here’s a look:

Jerry Jones can’t shut up, as we know, so there is no surprise that he has declared the Cowboys as Super Bowl contenders. I’m just linking to it because I don’t want to read it.
More recent concerns have focused on Stephen Jones, who called out Morris Claiborne but then tried to deny that he called out Morris Claiborne. The quote:
“Mo Claiborne’s got to get out there,” Jones said on Friday. “The times he’s been out there, it’s been impressive. But he certainly can’t make the club in the tub, if you will. He’s got to get out there. It’s time. We got to start having a mentality that we’re going to play through things.

The Cowboys don’t have a proven third wide receiver, but the team is not going to try to bring in a veteran such as Plaxico Burress.
Center is another potential problem area, but the Cowboys are also not going to sign former Eagle Jamaal Jackson.
The starting center for Monday night: David Arkin.
