    SAN DIEGO – The Cowboys' starters scored their first touchdown of the preseason Saturday night against San Diego.

    So what?

    Anybody who watched the game knows the offense stunk. Maybe you'd describe it as putrid. Or atrocious.

    Then there's my personal favorite: raggedy.

    As in: The running game was raggedy, as was the passing game. When Roy Williams wasn't slipping and falling on a route as the ball sailed over his head, then Miles Austin was dropping a pass or Tony Romo was throwing the ball to spots where there weren't any receivers.

    Except for one pass – a nifty back-shoulder fade to Austin that resulted in a 9-yard touchdown – there wasn't much good to say about the first-team offense.

    For those of you who desire something positive, how about this: The offensive struggles can't be blamed on third-string tackle Robert Brewster, who started because of injuries to Marc Colombo and Alex Barron.
    That's about it.

    We should look better. And the short yardage game is still suspect.
