    OXNARD, Calif. (AP) -- A week into training camp, Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells doesn't like what he's seen so far.

    "Things are not going well," Parcells said Friday. "I'm worried about that, and a little frustrated, with things in a couple of places where we should be better than what they are. But it's the first week of the season so I have to keep that in perspective as well."

    Cowboys' offense salvages reputation in scrimmage:

    August 5, 2006

    OXNARD, Calif. (AP) -- Even without Terrell Owens, the Dallas Cowboys' offense was able to hold its own against the defense in an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday.

    The offense scored on seven of nine 10-play series and got close enough to try a field goal on another. It was a respectable showing considering coach Bill Parcells has said for days that the offense was lagging behind the defense.

    There were some problems for the offense. For instance, the only drive that didn't come anywhere close to points was the first one, led by starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe against the first-team defense. There were three sacks in that drive, including two in a row to end it.

    That's classic Parcells. Whereas Belichick is notoriously silent regarding team progress, Parcells has traditionally put a negative spin on things. It's his M.O. - or have we forgotten already.

    If this was the Patriots, we would be saying, "It's only August 5th." Have you been to Patriots training camp? That offense isn't setting the world on fire either. Not sure what the point of this post is. It's the first week of training camp and in most cases, defenses are ahead of the offenses.

    Exactley. The same thing is happening in both Cowboys and Patriots camp. Parcells reaction is, "I'm not sure we could beat a high school team right now with the way are offense looks." Belichick's reaction is, "It's only been a week. It is what it is." My guess is both Dallas and New England fan bases like their chances with who coaches their respective teams. Both teams are pretty much guaranteed 7 wins to start the year just because Parcells and Belichick will outsmart 7 other coaches. The rest comes down to talent, execution and injuries. Oh yeah, and officiating. :D

    You got it - we seek out Billboard material about the Patriots. Parcells is the one who writes the billboard material about the teams he coaches.
