This is how tough the NFC West is: 0-4 San Francisco is only two games out of first place.
And Arizona (2-2), which is tied for first, has been outscored 118-58 this season.
That's the mild, mild West, for you.
Elsewhere, Jerry Jones, owner of another flowerhouse, the Dallas Cowboys (1-2) said he told his coaches, "Let's pretend for a few days here that we're 0-3 and … feel how it would feel."
Hey, Jerry, have the Cowboys fallen that far? Isn't 1-2 bad enough?

Fantasy flops: Quarterback Jay Cutler (Chicago), completed eight of 11 passes for 42 yards with one interception, no touchdowns; quarterback Donovan McNabb (Washington) completed eight of 19 passes for 125 yards with one interception, one touchdown; running back Ronnie Brown (Miami), 11 carries, 27 yards, no touchdowns.
Special citation: Against New England, Miami became first team in NFL history to allow touchdowns on a run, a pass, an interception return, a kickoff return and a blocked field goal in the same game. (Somehow, Miami lost, 41-14).
