DALLAS, TX – It was a remarkable contrast to the incredible edifice that is Cowboys’ Stadium Thanksgiving afternoon when you consider where the Cowboys and Saints have been, where they are now and where they appear to be headed in the immediate future.

There was a time when the Saints would have had few fans making the trek to Dallas – some 520 miles away – anticipating a long day in defeat. Instead, there seemed to be close to 30,000 Who Dats in the crowd of 94,000 rooting for a team that no longer gives them reason to expect the worst in defeat, but rather to expect the best in victory.

At one point the Cowboys led this series 11-1 and later 14-3. The Saints have now emerged victorious in six of the last seven meetings.

While the Saints are hoping once again to lapse into the Super Bowl dreams that they dreamed and came true just a season ago, the Cowboys just hoped to avoid another non-winning season – one can, one won’t.

The loss Thursday guaranteed the Cowboys their ninth non-winning season since Jerry Jones took over as owner and general manager in 1989.

Jerry Jones is the perfect poster boy for everything I find most distasteful about the NFL at present -- elitism and greed, dedication to profit margin rather than the game, egocentric millionaires still dissatisfied until they are billionaires, and awesome facilities showcasing an inferior product. Jerry Botox Jones is the perfect symbol and leader of this soulless movement.

I'd agree, except that I think Jerry really plays to the lowest common denominator rather than elitism, which is why Dallas remains such a popular team.

I think it has to do more with the generations than Jerry.

When I grew up in the 70's in Abbeville friends either had a Dallas or a Steelers "Starter Jacket".

Let's christen Jerry's new house in February - SB45, B&G#2. Can you imagine him in his box as they crown us champs? PRICELESS!

I grew up on my family's ranch in Texas and was a true cowboy. My dad loved the Cowboys and faithfully watched them every Sunday. Jerry Jones bought the franchise and killed my fathers Cowboys.(murdered them in their sleep) Now they should be called the Dallas Rustlers.........I hate Jerry Jones.
I'm more Bruce Wayne and Batman. Jerry Jones and Skeletor are simply.....the dark side. Everything that goes to Dallas fades away or dies. I ramble on.......sorry. I hate Jerry Jones!
