Sports Illustrated columnist Peter King hands it to the Dallas Cowboys today. King says the New York Giants are the NFL’s best team, which gives some serious credence to The Landry Hat’s awesome power ranker, Ironman.
Somewhere in between the Cowboys giving up 37 points to the Eagles and 381 yards to the Redskins — both at home — and listening to Terrell Owens complain last night that he’s not getting the ball enough, I came to realize the team with the best talent is not the best team. At least not now.
You know what, King is right. He goes on to say that the Giants have the hunger to win. The Cowboys right now are all flash and talk. Once again, there does not appear to be a true leader. I watched the Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburg Steelers game Monday night, and I saw leaders. I saw the Ravens Ray Lewis lead. His team may not have won, and they were overmatched offesnively anyway, but that defense sure looked great. Where is our Ray Lewis?
King also has Jim Zorn as coach of the year and Eddie Royal rookie of the year, not Felix Jones.
“Best receiver in the draft,” said Mike Shanahan a couple of weeks ago, and if this pace keeps up — with 27 catches, he’s on schedule for 108 receptions, and he just might get there with Cutler throwing to him — he’ll be the perfect complement to Brandon Marshall.
