    Obviously, getting hammered by your division rival bothers me, but when I stand back and think about it, there's more.

    Over the last half of our season, we had road games against all of our Division rivals.

    Against the Eagles we played poorly throughout the game, and although we got a miracle at the end, we played a bad game.

    Against the Giants, we played poorly.

    Against the Skins, we played poorly, to Biblical proportions.

    Those were our biggest games, and we should have played our best games.

    What is wrong here ?

    Maybe Parcells forgot to put out the mouse traps, or the time clocks, ... no wait, that was Campo.

    Whether or not we won those games, we should at least come out prepared and give a great effort to play a great game.

    I didn't see that in any of our "BIG" division games in the last half of the season, ... and that bothers me.

    What gives ?

    Where do you get off with such Heresy? ;)

    There are times when teams are just flat out better, there are times when you are just due for a butt whoopin.

    This may have been one of those times but this is becoming a trend.

    3rd year in a row with a 2nd half of the season collapse... last year was just bad all around, but I'm wondering why, every year, Dallas falls flat on their face after in the 2nd half of the season...

    Three straight five and elevens, then BP arrives, then we just can't sustain anything...

    This second half of the season, I've seen...

    OL totally implodes... right on Drew Bledsoe
    QB gets WAAAY too much pressure...
    Defense springs leaks... run defense is just baffling.
    Pass rush... whatever pressure we had went limp from the MNF Philly game on.

    Are you really convinced that Washington is that much better than us though? Not just 35-7 better, I mean 14-13 better?
    There is no they are even one point better than us, not in my eyes.

    If that is the case, then I would not be bothered.

    But have you watched the games ?

    Do you not see what I am talking about ?

    Do you think that the skins are 28 points better than us ? ... I don't.

    Or that the score should be 28 - 0 at the half ?

    Something is wrong when a team continues to NOT show up for big games against your most hated rivals.

    It used to be when we had big games, they were great games.

    We battled, we fought, we may win, we may lose, but when it was over we had seen a great effort and a great game.

    It seems like we were just not interested these three games.

    Don't fool yourself we absolutely crushed you yesterday. We beat you close in September and we destroyed you in December, different style, same result.

    We are better than you head to head this year. That's a fact. You can dance around the issue all you want but when the Cowboys and Redskins met in the year 2005, the Redskins were the better team both times.

    More fuel to the fire for next year! Rock on.

    You just aren't getting my point.

    I watched the game, I know we got crushed !

    But did you like the effort ?

    Did you see our Defense flying around ? No, we were missing tackles, misjudging INT's, playing passive.

    Did you see our Offense moving the ball ? No, we were holding, false starting, dropping passes, missing field goals.

    If you were satisfied with the effort and our "showing", then that is your choice.

    I didn't like the effort, ... but in the end, they still get in their expensive cars and drive to their expensive houses.

    So no big deal.

    Being a sore loser would be complaining about refs, and this and that. But saying that you don't think another team is really better than you is not being a sore loser.

    the reason why we looked bad is because the redskins are good. thier offense scored points against us. that means they were better than us when they had the ball. our offense couldnt score points, which means their defense was better than us when we had the ball. i didnt like our effort but i know the cowboys were focused and ready to play. i know they showed up to play but the skins are just better. did you see the sackfest in the second half.

    BREAKING NEWS.... yes it is.i might not have said this after the first loss but when you lose 35-7 you kind of have to give in to the facts.

    Forgive me, I mean no disrespect, but what are you talking about?

    Penalties, penalties.

    You say we couldn't score??? Barber scored, (I think it was still 7-0, maybe 14) but it was called back because of a penalty on LA, then we missed a makable FG.

    We were our own worst enemy.

    Sure the skins looked good, that's all I expected from the Cowboys, ... just look good, like you cared.

    That's what bothers me more than anything. This team has yet to come out for a road game ready to play. Well...the first game of the season in SD was probably the only time we came out with some fire. Even in San Fran, we almost got blown out. But like you said, the 3 division games on the road have been embarassing. We were LUCKY we didn't get blown out in the Philly and NYG games as we did in Washington. You have to question the coaching here. In each game we came out flat and seemingly unprepared...

    Newsflash. We lost 34-7 in Philadelphia on our way to our first SB back in 1992. I never thought the Eagles were the better team and the end of the year proved that they weren't.

    Just because you feel your team is the better team does not mean you're a sore loser.
