Cowboys stopped believin' the hype

November 26, 2008

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

IRVING, Texas -- Linebacker Bradie James remembers the exact moment the Cowboys started to lose their superiority complex. And it had nothing to do with Brad Johnson stepping under center.

Beginning in training camp, the Cowboys bought into the massive hype that surrounded them in the form of HBO's "Hard Knocks" and constant headlines touting them as a Super Bowl favorite. More than one player (you know who you are) talked about wanting to fast forward through the regular season and go straight to the playoffs.

Of course, that was before the Redskins showed the world in Week 4 (San Francisco excluded) how to take Terrell Owens out of a game, and teams such as the Bengals and Cardinals followed suit.

Because of their head coach's coddling, it took players a couple of weeks to realize they couldn't survive on reputation alone.
