This week’s Online Buzz finds the Cowboys trouncing the Vikings in team-related searches with a whopping 11,459 for the Cowboys and 1,906 for the Vikings. (Read my methodology here.)
In the quarterback matchups, Daunte Culpepper (161) beats out the Cowboys starting quarterback Vinny Testaverde (46) but, unforturnately, gets outsearched by the Cowboys’ backup signal-caller, the relatively obscure Drew Henson (172). The reason Henson is such a draw is most-likely due to the fact that even before the season was underway, they had a full-blown quarterback controversy on their hands when last year’s starter Quincy Carter allegedly failed drug tests and was subsequently cut by Coach Parcells. (Carter alone garnered 364 searches). Chris Hovan (50) gets trounced by Cowboys safety Darren Woodson (186); Michael Bennett (106) gets smothered by Eddie George (536); and among top picks, the 11 searches for Kenechie Udeze are a faint whisper to Julius Jones‘ 186. Among coaches, third-year guy Mike Tice (26) is overmatched against the legendary Bill Parcells (204). The only match up that favors the Vikes, is–you guessed it–among wide recievers: Randy Moss dominates here, of course. The freak gets 739 searches compared to Keyshawn Johnson (130) and Terry Glenn (19).
