Wearing them out

The Cowboys have not only beat teams this season but they have beat them up.

Consider the injury lists of the Bears and Rams the past two weeks.

Cornerback Nathan Vasher, guard Reuben Brown, defensive tackle Tommie Harris and linebacker Lance Briggs -- all former Pro Bowlers --  left the 34-10 drubbing with injuries.

In Sunday's 35-7 victory over St. Louis, five Rams were listed on the post-game injury list, including guard Adam Goldberg, linebacker Raonnal Smith, receiver Isaac Bruce, defensive end Leonard Little and safety Corey Chavous.

And this comes after Miami lost lost Pro Bowl linebacker Zach Thomas to a concusion in the Week 2 blowout. The Cowboys set the tone of adding injury to insult in what is becoming weekly routs by sending four Giants to the sidelines in the 45-35 season-opening victory. That list included quarterback Eli Manning, running back Brandon Jacobs, cornerback Kevin Dockery and defensive end Osi Umenyiora.

Shhh! Don't speak it. Don't even think it. Yet. It's already been whispered. Super.......No not yet.
However, when the Great one, Roger, says he sees a bit of himself in the young quarterback, hope does tend to well up inside.
