LOS ANGELES -- Taking apart a football team and putting it back together is not exactly like playing with an erector set. The Dallas Cowboys, to be brutally frank, are both good and lucky.They have accomplished more in a shorter time span than any organization in the history of the NFL, from a 1-15 season four years ago to the Super Bowl.It's an unprecedented attainment, enough to make you want to wonder if the entire scenario is more fiction than fact. But, no, it's not an illusion; it's reality.

He must delegate Aaron Wilson Baltimore Sun The myth that Jerry Jones tries to perpetuate goes like this: Former Arkansas guard, self-made billionaire and boss of "America's Team" actually has it all figured out. Well, not so fast. Bill Parcells acquired a lot of talent still on the roster, and Jones still has plenty of competent, low-key football people advising him behind the scenes. Can the Cowboys keep climbing with Jones running the show? Yes and no. It all depends on how he delegates when cameras aren't watching.

IRVING, Texas -- Pete Stoyanovich and the Miami Dolphins discovered a cure for the uncommon cold yesterday at Texas Stadium. When it appeared the Dolphins would finish a snowplow short of upsetting Dallas, Leon Lett made an unconscionable mistake that immediately lowered the wind-chill and dropped the Cowboys.Cowboys defensive lineman Jimmie Jones seemed to clinch a 14-13 victory for the Cowboys when he blocked Stoyanovich's 41-yard field-goal attempt with 15 seconds left.But with some teammates -- and owner Jerry Jones -- celebrating on the sideline and others standing around the ball at the 7, Lett suddenly came sliding in as if to recover and inadvertently kicked the football to the Dallas 1-yard line.

In the NFL, everyone tries to keep up with the Joneses. And for good reason. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has transformed a franchise that was losing $1 million per month in 1989 into the league's richest team, one valued by Forbes at $1.8 billion. Despite their struggles on the field, the Cowboys are routinely at the top when it comes to number of prime-time games, sponsorship revenue, TV viewership numbers and merchandise sales. In fact, their cheerleaders outsell many NFL teams in merchandise.

Owner can't be trusted Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun Never trust an oil man to tell you the truth. Not in business, in politics, and especially not in matters pertaining to football. Of course there is a chance Jerry Jones will still fire Wade Phillips before the season ends. He can argue otherwise until his face lift is blue, and I'm still not buying it. True, the Cowboys' season is pretty much toast. And despite what every fantasy wonk or ESPN analyst — most notably former players like Keyshawn Johnson — are saying, this team isn't that good.

Give Garrett fair chance Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times With Wade Phillips as coach, Cowboys fans were left to ponder the otherwise unthinkable: Does the brown paper bag go under or over the 10-gallon hat? That puts Jason Garrett in a very difficult spot because a significant portion of that fan base looks at him as part of the problem and not part of the solution. That said, if the Cowboys win five of their final eight games, I'd keep Garrett as coach for at least another season to give him a fair chance to implement his plan.

A lot of Washington Redskins season-ticket holders plan to get their money's worth tonight: They're staying home and skipping the final exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at RFK Stadium.The Redskins, who don't require their season-ticket holders to buy tickets for exhibition games, drew only 40,778 for their first home exhibition game and aren't expected to do much better for this one.The Redskins usually sold out preseason games in the Joe Gibbs era, but they're not as much of an attraction now that the team is losing.

Body parts Between Tom Brady's right foot and Peyton Manning's left knee, the NFL's two best quarterbacks didn't play a snap during the preseason. Both injuries were shrouded in mystery by the Patriots and Colts. There was even speculation Manning (above) had two knee surgeries in the offseason. The AFC crown could hang in the balance. Feeling the heat The Dallas Cowboys haven't won a playoff game since 1996, a drought that covers five losses. Jerry Jones (above) shelled out $70 million in guarantees to keep seven players and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, and added Adam Jones.

The Cowboys thought they might be the last team standing. Now they could be the first team drafting. So how does a proud franchise miss the mark in such a spectacular way, following its most promising season in a decade by losing seven of its first eight games? Is it all coaching? What role does owner Jerry Jones play? How do those players — essentially the same group that won a playoff game last season — allow themselves to be embarrassed the way they were last Sunday in a 45-7 loss at Green Bay?

The new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys should be Brian Billick. If Dallas owner Jerry Jones fires current coach Wade Phillips at the end of the season as expected, then he should go after Billick. It's the perfect marriage. Now, introducing the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys … Right about now, you're choking on whatever you're eating or drinking. I know what you're thinking. How can I, Baltimore's biggest Billick basher, endorse him for the Cowboys' job? That's an easy one. To borrow a Billick saying, if I may, his hiring "fits within their parameters.

N ews item : Former major league outfielder Curt Motton, a member of the great Orioles teams of the late 1960s and early 1970s, died Thursday after a yearlong bout with stomach cancer. He was 69. My take: The testimonials from his former teammates speak for themselves. Curt was a nice player, but - more importantly - he was one of the nicest people ever to wear an Orioles uniform. Godspeed. News item: During his season-ending news conference Tuesday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh would not rule out the possibility that the team would bring back kicker Matt Stover next season.

Cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones won't be disciplined by the Dallas Cowboys for a scuffle with his bodyguard that team owner Jerry Jones said resulted from joking banter that got out of hand and was quickly settled. "They were literally kidding each other," Jerry Jones said yesterday. "They were jiving around ... and all of a sudden one of them started saying some things, and here you go." Dallas police were called to an upscale downtown hotel because of the disturbance late Tuesday night.
