http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post/_/id/46015/cowboys-need-sturdier-building-blocks I like to write some sort of substantial analysis post on each of our division's teams after they play games, and more often than not I'll write the winning team first, which is why you see a Robert Griffin III column on this blog but haven't yet seen anything major on the Dallas Cowboys since Thursday's loss to Washington. But the fact is, I've been struggling to think up something to write about the Cowboys that I haven't already written a dozen times. Other than their very first game of the season, no game the Cowboys have played this year (including Thursday's) has given me any reason to change my opinion of what they are -- an average team with a few really good players capable of looking better or worse than they really are in any given week, game or quarter. They're not awful, as many have been suggesting since about 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, and they're not great either. They're just kind of... meh. Now, the folks who run the Cowboys aren't content with "meh," and they're certainly not happy about it. But they do perceive themselves to be in the process of building something that remains incomplete. So while the current state of affairs isn't a whole lot of fun, it will be acceptable in retrospect if they are someday soon looking back on it as a step along the road from "meh" to "very good."
