Washington Post: Cowboys Out-Disappoint The Vikings

My latest post at the Washington Post is my take on which team is the bigger disappointment: the Vikings or the Cowboys. It was inevitable that Brad Childress would be fired once he put Brett Favre ahead of the team. But at the start of the season, I would have never predicted that Wade Phillips would be fired mid-season. That's why I said the Cowboys were the bigger disappointment:

My team, the Green Bay Packers, has drawn the distinction of seeing their opponent's head coach fired within one day of a blow-out loss in two consecutive weeks. It wasn't just that one loss that led to their dismissals. It was a culmination of events. But the timing both announcements surprised me. If they made it this far, then why not wait until the end of the season?
