It doesn’t look good for the Cowboys

Standard

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones always has high expectations for his football team.

However, after Saturday it looks like the Cowboys are in trouble.

The Cowboys lost 23-7 to the Houston Texans and to make matters worst the starter were shut out after playing three full quarters.

Yes, it is only preseason, but even when your starters have that many problems in the preseasson it usually spells bad thing to come.

In the end, if the Cowboys don’t get things moving in the preseason finale Thursday it will be a long season.

End of the road for Coles

Standard

Wide receiver Laveranues Coles was released by the New York Jets earlier today, and is now contemplating retirement.

Even if he doesn’t retire it is most likely the end for Coles.

Last year with the Cincinnati Bengals Coles caught 43 passes for 514 yards and five touchdowns.

In 2005 with the Jets Coles caught 70 passes for 850 yards and seven touchdowns.

Clearly Coles is in the decline stage of his career and very few teams will take a chance on a old washed up receiver.

In the end, at least if Coles retires now he still will have some dignity left.
