At first glance, the Cowboys and Bengals franchises don’t seem to have much in common (look no further than a list of past Super Bowl champions). Both however have controlling owners who can hold them back although one of them doesn’t mind spending money (hint: it’s not our guy).
Both teams have weak head coaches, and they essentially traded offensive line coaches this offseason. This offseason the Cowboys released Dez Bryant, one of their premier players, without any tangible plan for replacing him (a very Bengals move).
The Cowboys started this season 2-3 and the Bengals started 4-1. Despite a stronger start for the Bengals, they clearly had problems and both teams needed to make changes. The Bengals fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and that was it.
