Cowboys midseason report: Humble Pie

IRVING, Texas -- It's a good thing the Cowboys didn't claim Randy Moss off of waivers. He really wouldn't have liked the food served at Valley Ranch these days.

"Oh, man, we've gotten two big servings of humble pie," nose tackle Jay Ratliff said. "We are humbled. We are definitely humbled."

That ought to be an understatement.

After all, this is a team that was hyped as contenders to play in the Super Bowl they'll host in their $1.2 billion home. They're an absolute mess at the midway point of the season, having lost five consecutive games to fall to 1-7 and get their coach fired.

So it's fitting that the Cowboys' midseason report focuses on their failures. ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon, Calvin Watkins and ex-NFL scout Bryan Broaddus will cater the event, handing out the appropriate amount of humble pies (on a one to five scale) for each position group.
