    Romo botched snap sucked, but at the time I knew that team wasn't going anywhere. It sucked more after aging and becoming his legacy.

    The Crayton sun in his eyes drop, one and done playoff loss to the Giants was enormously painful. We should've gone all the way.

    The playoff blowout vs Vikings was rough. I was working at an HFD station, made about 20 calls that shift, and in between watched us get trounced while simultaneously listening to the Houston faithful run their mouths. It was the worst shift.

    Dez "drop" also sucked, but I sure as hell didn't trust the defense to hold them.

    Speaking of holding the Aaron Rodgers 3rd down conversion still makes me irate. Irving was being clotheslined directly in front of the ref, and NO CALL.

    My first game in 1983 where I was forced to be a Cowboys fan for life. Worst day for sure. :D;)

    Yes I can! My job is to teach young men the game of Basketball. Now I'll admit that coaching 11 year olds is not as demanding as other ages (thus why I choose 11 year olds)

    but to teach a young man that theres is more important things in life than winning a game, such as teamwork, being on the same page and yes that everyone on YOUR teaM HAS VALUE.

    It's rewarding as hell when a grown man comes back and says Thank you

    BTW We won a Championship (Extra Added Bonus)

    If it wasn’t for Jimmy Johnson and the moves he made the Cowboys wouldn’t have celebrated another championship. The Cowboys would be stuck with two Super Bowl wins from the 70s. The game had passed Tom Landry by and he and his regime had to go. Had Jerry not taken over and fired him there would’ve been no Jimmy Johnson and three Super Bowl wins in the 90s. Some of you continue to live in the moment with Jerry. The greatest teams in Cowboys history were under his ownership. The 92 Cowboys are ranked as one of the top 10 greatest teams of all time. That team and the other two great 90s teams never happen under Tom Landry. Great coach and human being but he was stuck in the past.

    Crayton failing to make a regulation catch from a perfectly thrown ball to beat the eventual Superbowl Champions.

    Really? Because the Titans' and San Fran's bus drivers did pretty good last year. Proving Parcells schemes still work in today's NFL.

    Q.Carter was the worst and had to go. But Parcells brought us both Romo and Witten. So something good did come from his era. If he would have stayed on for another three years, I truly believe we would have won a SB.

    He didn’t fire Jimmy and if he didn’t fire Landry Jimmy would’ve never had the opportunity to mold the team into what it became. Landry admitted in an interview he wouldn’t have traded Herschel Walker. That proves the Cowboys would have gone nowhere had Landry remained HC.

    The 94-95 NFC Championship loss was pretty bad too. Gave up three early scores on turnovers on a terrible field, then let Young hit Rice deep right before the half. We actually won the second half of that game despite the Deion no call. Barry's 15 yard penalty for coming onto the field didn't help. Lost that game by 10 points. We also missed an early FG on that terrible field. Had to watch that game with a bloody 9ers fan.

    Plenty already mentioned. I will add:

    Detroit coming back from 24 points down to beat Dallas in a game where we dominated early. Humiliation was complete with 1st round bust Bobby Carpenter getting a pick six on Romo.

    umm, love the fragrance of a H2O treatment plant in the morning, much like napalm.

    We won that game to go to 6-5 on the season, looking like we had a chance for the division, only to proceed to lose out. :(
