    IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys showed a remarkable ability to come back from double-digit deficits throughout the course of the season.

    Unfortunately, they were mostly caused by their poor starts. Whatever Jason Garrett was selling before the game the Cowboys were not buying at the beginning, especially early in the season.

    For a team that had little margin for error, the poor starts were too much to overcome and played a big part in why the Cowboys finished 8-8 for the second straight year.

    Another good reason Garrett needs to step back, and let an OC do the game plan.

    IIRC, the Cowboys have been having slow starts since 2007, am I crazy? Seems like in even the 2007 13-3 season the offense would start real slow and didn't score much in the first qtr
