    The Cowboys lost this game for one reason and one reason only. Ineffective QB play. Not coaching, not lack of a RB, not defense and not special teams. Cassel just isn't getting it done and Weeden before him.

    Eh, there's plenty of blame to extend some to the coaches to. Can't play scared and expect to win.

    Bull****.Garrett lost us this game.We had momentum early and we could have scored a TD if we have gone for it,why are we playing so conservative when we lost 4 in a row? are we going to lose another game ? how is it different now?

    You would be even more upset with Garrett if he had gone for it and didn't make it.

    I think only one backup has won when they started the game this year. I'm not 100% sure of,that

    So 3 back-to-back-to-back running plays after a blocked field goal isn't on the coaching staff?

    After a five-game losing streak, the onus most definitely falls on the coaches. The last two coaches in Dallas to lose five straight were promptly fired.

    The coaches either need to put their players in a better position to succeed or recognize the talent they have is insufficient.

    Why do you think they made 3 straight running plays if indeed Linehan did? Think!

    What did you see from our offense today that makes you think we could have scored a TD? Garrett went for it on 4th down early in the game so I don't think we called too conservative of a game.

    We had a lead and couldn't stop the final drive.

    Coaches have a part for sure. Red zone play calling leaves plenty to be desired. Seems they have a hard time finding mismatches, when there are always mismatches to be had.

    I disagree.

    The offense is way too conservative and predictable. It's great when it's working. But when it's not...you have to change things up. Garrett and Linehan can't figure out this concept which is something people should instinctively comprehend.

    I'd rather let Cassel get his shots downfield and see what decisions he makes first and then if he's making bad decisions/throws....reign him in or just yank him.

    It sets a bad tone for the team as well. You should always play to win instead of playing not to lose.

    And it makes me wonder if Garrett will ever be able to develop the replacement for Romo when that time comes.

    A flaming yak turd has more substance, intelligence, and guts that our offensive coaching staff (yes, that definitely includes Clappy).

    No it is the coaches fault. Quit clapping on every penalty the Cowboys get that DESTROYS a drive. The amount of stupid penalties this team gets is ridiculous and he just keeps clapping
