    Yes I am typing this before the game is over but I don't care- this team has no killer instinct and hasn't had one in years. When you have a team down you finish them. PERIOD. Kudos to the skins for staying in it. Hopefully this is a wake up message. :bang2: :bang2: :banghead:

    You made a good point, when we should have shown the "killer instinct" as you called it and when we could have put the game out of reach, we allowed them to stay close.

    of course if cortez doesn't miss from 41 on the first drive all this is moot......... where is cundiff when we need him?

    There's no such thing as a good loss. Especially a game you dominated for 3 and half quarters against a bad team.

    Just seeing the way no class Gibbs and the 4skins reacted, it is definitely not a good loss.

    Maybe if the play calling and Bledsoe's decision making was better we win. Maybe if A. Glenn knew this was a rivalry and could cover we win.

    no..this is a great post. Jimmie would have put this away in the early third at the latest.

    Played to not loose and look what happened.

    This one is not on Cortez........This one is on BP. He was too conservative when he had a chance to put them away.

    we played a great defensive game, the skins had 2 good offensive plays that killed us, and it sucks that 2 plays could kill us, i guess we did it to them last year with crayton, but still... moss has some speed, they could have just sent him vertically and threw the ball to him :bang2:

    that is true, but him missing that early fg was not the point. we still didn't put the ball into the endzone but 1 time.

    Things I noticed.

    (1) We NEED Peerless. Our offense was vanilla boring. Witten had like 2 catches. We need someone else that has speed who can get open.

    (2) Our defense in that 2nd half looked tired and coudn't get to Burnell. Our secondary was pathetic on the deep passes. Aaron Glenn let Moss get by him on those 2 tds. Newman too let alot of short passes get caught, didn't even bother to try and get to the ball. Pathetic.

    (3) We need a true FS. What did Keith Davis do in this game? Was he even in?

    Kind of hard to have a killer instinct when your play calling is so damn conservative. They didnt play to win they played not to lose. The 2 bogus calls on Flozell Adams killed 2 drives that might of been the difference but its hard to say that when the offense was so vanilla. The Skins did a good job of shutting down JJ, we needed to switch gears and soften them up with the pass but that never happened and Dallas just kept running for 1 to 3 yards and punting.

    This is a good loss for us it will teach them to play the whole 60 minutes. I think it will strengthen the team in the long run.

    Yea that was pathetic...All Cowboys players (especially Roy Williams...my fav. player) have lost my respect.they arent gonna b able to regain it until week 5 either(if they beat the Eagles)...and if they lose to the 49ers r the Raiders they wont gain it back unless they humiliate the Eagles (I mean shutout, 60+ points) in week 5...most pathetic thing i have ever seen...and that last play was ********...the short pass then try to lateral it a bunch

    Good Loss my ***. We had this game won and we handed it to them on a silver "prevent defense" platter. We play them tight and tough all night and then go to a soft 10 yard cushion defense that just invites them to throw deep. And throwing deep is exactly what they need to do.

    And what the HELL was that run into the middle when we had it down close on third down? We run right into the teeth of the defense. We just gave up on that series when we were poised for the knockout punch.

    Our Coordinators or play callers or stratigist absolutely sucked in the last 5 minutes of that game....STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!

    And it happened with those stupid jinxed Throwback uniforms...GOD I HATE THAT!!!

    I am disgusted...and I am going to bed.
