So it just crossed my mind that the arch rivals of the Washington and Baltimore NFL teams lost yesterday, on the same day that the local teams captured victory.

So here’s what the opposing media is saying about the delicious debacles of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

There have been worse performances in Chicago. Dillinger, Daley in ‘68, St. Valentine’s Day, Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow.

Approaching that infamy, though, are the Steelers of the past 75 years. They came here to play a game for the 13th time since 1934 and came away with their 12th loss.

Dallas Morning News

In cutting the regular-season ribbon on a stadium that is all about size, maybe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones should have thought twice about hosting a team called Giants.

Not every game at Cowboys Stadium is going to produce crowds on the high side of 100,000 or ex-presidents flipping coins or kings (as in LeBron James) watching from luxury suites.

And if Tony Romo has anything to say about it, there won’t be another game like this for some time.
