You can always count on NBC Sports columnists to come down hard on the Cowboys.
Tom Curran has been a longtime critic of head coach Wade Phillips. He hates the trade of Roy Williams. Curran is slamming the Cowboys for not suspending Pacman Jones too.
Now Steve Silverman of MSNBC.com chops up the Cowboys. cbsportsline.com is dicing up Jerry Jones.
The Cowboys draft choices are all over the place in 2009. Here is what they do and don’t have.

Greg Ellis was one of the few, the proud, the speaking Cowboys in the locker room today.
T.O. didn’t speak.
Ellis called out the team for not putting its best foot forward. My boys at the Morning News blog are all over it.
Coach Wade Phillips is too soft on these guys right now. Owner Jerry Jones is out there covering for Pacman Jones. Tony Romo’s turnovers haven’t been addressed, the defense has not played up to snuff, and Ellis is the guy who says we need to get better.
Good for you Greg.
“I’m just disappointed in this organization right now,” said Ellis, who is in his 11th year with the Cowboys. “From the whole deal of it. Things just aren’t going real good.
“Before the game, I said everybody’s got to take part in this football team – the strength coaches, the coaches, the owners, the head coaches. This football team is truly a team sport. You need everybody to win. Everybody has to do their best for us to win. Right now, I feel like we — players, Greg Ellis included, all of us — we’re just not putting our best foot forward right now.”
I give Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens a lot of credit, he knows how to play the blame game and make sure he is always in a position of being a victim when things get hot.
Michael Irvin has a radio show in DFW and he is an unabashed T.O. apologist. Today, Irvin had T.O. so he could explain his press conference and how the media is “trying to divide this team”.
Owens said part of his tears and emotions Sunday were the loss of a family member. He did not say who the family member was during the radio interview.

I’m looking into the crystal ball and it’s telling me the Cowboys will win today over the Redskins.
I am looking deep…..very deep for a score.
Cowboys 32 Redskins 17.
BTW, I’m 3-0 on my picks this year. I was one of the bold media who picked the Cowboys to win in Green Bay last week.

Man, they really aren’t over Terrell Owens in Philadelphia. Do you see anybody in DFW still harping on Alex Rodriguez leaving the Texas Rangers? No, we’ve moved on around here.
In Philly, they are obessed with it.
Well, the folks in Philly usually get to decide who they will run out of town: Charles Barkley, Allen Iverson, Randall Cunningham, etc.
Not with T.O., he talked and acted his way in Philly. They still are looking back though, Ashley Fox reports.
Let’s face it. T.O. is not for everybody. The Cowboys wide receiver is playing his old Philly Eagles buddies on Monday Night. That means more T.O. vs Donovan McNabb talk.
The two players were once friends and became enemies. But it wasn’t T.O.’s fault. He wrote a book about it and two years later he’s still saying it wasn’t his fault.
My man Tim MacMahon has a great blog up. T.O. claims he got to big for Philly and too big for Donovan.
Excuse me while I go barf.
