NFL SHOCKER: Dallas 'Big D's' New England, Are the Cowboys that good or is Belichick that overrated?

DALLAS (CC) - Are the Cowboys (3-1) that good, or are the Patriots (1-3) that bad? After witnessing the 38-3, trash-time tossing that Dallas threw at New England today, I think the Patriots are that bad under increasingly overrated head coach Bill Belichick's guidance this season.


New England's only win was a squeaker, 15-10, against the New York Jets last week, a team rocking with a replacement quarterback after future NFL Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers went down with an Achilles injury on his first possession this season.


In one throw, New England got lassoed by the Cowboys this afternoon with a strong enough knot to take down Belichick's rating as the NFL's best head coach ever. Mac Jones spotted the Cowboys 14 points with a sack-six and a pick-six.


Dallas also scored on their first possession of the game, then proceeded to rope New England with the largest halftime deficit Belichick has ever faced as an NFL head coach.


The score was 28-3 at the break, courtesy of two defensive touchdowns that Tom Brady's replacement, Mac Jones, surrendered.


The Cowboys have been the best in the NFL at taking the ball away, not only last season, but this season as well.


But Jones is no Tom Brady. He doesn't know his limitations like Brady knew his own. Jones tried to outrun Dallas' defensive linemen and gave up the sack-six. Brady would have taken the sack, covered the ball or tossed it away.


For awhile, there was a debate on whether or not Brady or Belichick was the chief reason for New England's Super Bowl runs.


That debate is over, with a sledge hammer crushing a deflated football for emphasis.


Dallas crushed all sides of the ball today.


After scoring six off a Jones turnover, Mike McCarthy outsmarted Belichick's vaunted special teams on a two-point conversion, off a fake extra point attempt, to make the score 18-3 in the second quarter.


Mac Jones was drafted in a higher position than Tom Brady. The latter led New England to a 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl 36 after the 2001-2002 season. Brady was a second-year quarterback and a first-year starter.


Jones, a third-year starter, was woeful starting today's game. He almost threw another pick in the next possession after throwing the pick-six to emerging superstar cornerback DaRon Bland.


On the opening drive of the third period, Bland picked Jones off again. Bland is the replacement for superstar CB Trevon Diggs, who is out with a torn ACL. Since entering the league last year, Bland has led the NFL with eight interceptions.


The sports world had gotten accustomed to Brady leading comebacks for Belichick, interception-free, and now the future Hall of Fame head coach is being exposed more and more without him in the mix.


Known as the best NFL coach ever, Belichick was seeking his NFL career win No. 300 this afternoon in Dallas, but Brady's replacement would not cooperate.


Apparently, Belichick is that overrated.
