Pathetic 'Boys

IRVING, Texas () -- The Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys seem to have the sky falling on them these days.


There are suspensions to be served by wide receiver Michael Irvin and defensive end Shante Carver.


There's worry over Jay Novacek's bad back and Tuesday's news that offensive tackle Mark Tuinei is out indefinitely after rupturing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in a 31-7 exhibition loss to New England on Monday night.


This is not to mention exhibition games in which the Cowboys have shown little offense, less defense and unmentionable special teams.


Quarterback Troy Aikman puts it succinctly.


"Pathetic," he said after the Cowboys were flogged by New England.
