    This team can not even block for a field goal. Has over 100 yards in penalties. Sorry, we are what we are, a medicore football team with no discipline that can not even do the fundamentals. By the way, our tightends stink at blocking!

    Have to agree. Win 1 lose 1 makes for 8-8.

    That's our story for four years.

    We're a good football team some weeks.

    Other weeks....we're as average as it gets.

    We just can't put together back to back weeks of great football.

    I can't think of one game this year where we played well from beginning to end.

    I have never been around a game that ended like that before in my life. I'm in total shock right now. The missed field goal. The run back. The face mask penalty. It's a complete and utter disaster. I just can't believe we lost that game.

    Chicken little my ***. Playoff teams don't have 150 yards in penalties and let the DLine run right at the kicker on a game winning FG attempt.

    I'm so disgusted with this team.

    Come on....

    I have watched this team come so close the last four years. I used to be one of those, "yeah, watch the Chicken Littles squirm" guys.

    But I think it's clear.....when we're about to take the next step....I mean, get a win that begins to move us into the upper echelon of the league...something happens.

    Whether it be an injury to a key player....a stupid INT.....a penalty at the wrong time....bad play....

    I'm beginning to think JJ sold his soul to the devil for those 3 SBs....

    65% of the teams that are 5-3 go to the playoffs. Something like 30 or 40 that are 4-4 so this loss was big.

    I would be happy with just going to the playoffs with a QB that is so inexperienced. But with Romo at QB we threw away our playoff chances.

    Agreed, we are not a playoff team. You are what you are; average.

    I thought we threw away our playoff chances 2 weeks ago when we put Romo in.

    Dallas is just full of mentally unprepared and undisciplined talent. Roy dropped a pick and had a questionable Pi call that he should have been in better position for. Henry failed to make a play. TO dropped a game breaker, Glenn dropped some passes, Vanderjagt should not do kickoffs. Mental errors galore. the story of the 2006 Dallas Cowboys by NFL films. A midround pick migth be nice, perhaps a young stud of a wideout or tackle to replace Adams would be in order.

    Uh, we're only one game back of the Falcons for a wildcard spot. You can't tell me there's a huge qualitative difference between us and them and us and the Vikings, and us and the 3 other teams that are 4-4: the Eagles, Rams, and Panthers. We're better than the Rams and Panthers for sure, and we can keep up with or surpass the Falcons, Eagles, and Vikes over these last 8 games, I'm sure of it. 8 games left and anything can happen. A ton of penalties, T.O. dropping some crucial balls, and a blocked FG cost us the game. I doubt all those things will all happen again to us in a game from here on in.

    He couldn't move the ball for much of the 2nd half. I think he'll be good in a couple years but this year it'll be a hit and miss for him. We threw away our playoff chances starting him. With Bledsoe we would probably make the playoffs maybe lose a game. But Bledsoe is gone after this year so maybe it's better that Romo gets a year under his belt and gains some valuable experience. I lost all hope the playoffs 2 weeks ago after Romo started the 2nd half.

    He drove us down the field for a TD on one drive.

    Another drive should have been a TD but TO dropped it.

    On another drive, a bad block by Gurode stalled us at midfield.

    On the last drive, he put us in position for a gimme FG but we couldn't block for Vandy.

    Romo was the best player on the field today for either team.
