Thanks Saints, Cowboys for a great night

Well, the Cowboys rolled while the Saints reeled.

Dallas won 30-7 without Terrell Owens, which has got to be a major thumb in Owens' face.

The Cowboys looked crisp and were in perfect harmony for probably 90-95 percent of the night. The Saints didn't look half as good and only moved the ball when Dallas first-team defense was off the field.
Wasn't that the problem last season for the Saints? Not being able to get their offense on track early and being forced to play from behind?
Not much as changed then.

Despite all of their success, Dallas head coach Bill Parcells thought his defense could have used a little more work, which is why he kept them on the field to start the second half.
That was the greatest benchmark of success for the Cowboys - the offense did a great job moving the ball and giving the defense plenty of time off.

Parcells did have one good quote. A member of the Shreveport media asked him how he would grade the offense and the defense.

"Well, I'm going to have to look at the film before I put a grade on it. But I'll send it to you as soon as I get it."
