IRVING Jerry Jones said Tuesday that the Cowboys were evolving into a team that can compete for a championship this year.
A somewhat surprising statement considering the team is 2-3 and not resembling a playoff contender. The Cowboys are in last place in the NFC East and 20 NFL teams have a better record.

IRVING, Texas The evidence keeps rolling in: The gap between the intellect of "teacher" Jason Garrett and the education of his "students" is massive especially when the pop quizzes that need to be passed are represented by Dallas Cowboys opportunities in opponents' territory.
Jimmy Johnson, a Garrett mentor, used to say, "You don't need to be nervous...
When Jason Garrett took the head coaching job of the Dallas Cowboys, he preached the familiar sermon of nearly every coach who has ever taken a job in the sport. He said he wanted a physical football team that was difficult to play against. He wanted pads in practice and competition. He wanted a more physical team that was prepared to participate and emerge victorious in a street...
