After the absolute beat-down that the Dallas Cowboys took on Monday Night Football, a few things became clear.
First, Tony Romo needs help. The offensive line is porous, certain receivers don't run correct routes, and when they do, they fail to catch the football.
Second, 2-2 feels much worse than 2-1. Sure, it's the same team with the same problems that the 2-1 team had, but that 2-1 record just made everyone feel a bit warmer on the inside. 2-2 feels like taking a sip of water when you were expecting lemonade.
Consequently, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys' front office need to think about the trade deadline. The NFL trade deadline was pushed back to the end of Week 8 this season, and therefore falls on October 30th.
That's less than four weeks away.
Sounds like it's time to preview the options the Cowboys front office might be looking at by the eve of Halloween.
