Mac Engel: As long as these results are acceptable, Dallas Cowboys will continue to be losers

  Mac Engel: As long as these results are acceptable, Dallas Cowboys will continue to be losers EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - No one will be fired today, of course, and some of the excuses are valid. But Jason Garrett and his team are losers. Everyone with the Dallas Cowboys is so wealthy and comfortable that they fear nothing, not even losing a game to the 0-4 New York Jets. Winning is the goal, but it's gravy. The Cowboys, the team that was at least better than the worst of the NFL, can no longer even say that.On Jerry Jones’ 77th birthday, his team took his cake and threw it on the ground with one of the worst, least inspiring halves of football of the Jason Garrett era.
