    Completely correct, but the saying-

    "Those who don't learn from the past are condemned to repeat it"

    Is absolutely factual.

    Whether it's Friday, or Sunday, or Wednesday...

    Biggest non call in the game was where Claiborne got mugged on the Johnson long gain was in position to make the tackle.

    Yes. He caught back up to him anyway. Would've caught him at about mid field if not for the blatant continuous hold.
    Maybe hurt his hamstring too.

    You can make all the excuses you want to - you can't give up 5 million yards per game and start pointing the finger elsewhere.

    Dont think any of us are making excuses. The honest fans know this defense sucks and that most of the coaches and players need to go. Just amazed at the non call that most of saw at game speed, that a crew of officials missed. Claibornes jersey literally being torn off.

    Yes. Those who don't think the refs were a problem are more noble and better fans. Congtrats you don't like to blame officials.
    There are several reasons why we lost. I think there has been many bad calls against us the last few years. I didn't always feel this way and don't know when exactly it started. I do feel this way now.
    The history of the calls against the Cowboys since the dynasty was over has been very out of balance in my opinion.
    Giving up 5 million yards is an excuse too.

    The numbers are the numbers - they are factual. Being the worst pass defense in the league is not an excuse at this point. It's a reason.

    I went back and watched the TWill "inadvertent contact" play a few times. Terrance had the defender beat, and was between the defender and the ball. There was no way for the defender to get to the ball without climbing over him. That has to be pass interference, regardless of whether the tripping looked intentional or not.

    That don't make it alright to flag one team for tripping and not the other one.

    Calling the game inconsistent with the rules is a reason. We have gotten blatant poor calls. Same Pi play went against us both ways. Flowers pushes Dez Dez gets called for pi. Ware and others tackled. That's a few this year. Those are reasons just like our poor defense. No there not even close to balanced out.
