    This season the Dallas Defense allowed 3.8 Yards Per Rush.

    Tonight they allowed 273 yards on 5.7 Yards Per Rush.

    Turn out the lights, party's over.

    I can understand Gurley getting his yards, but Anderson's success is a bit mind boggling.

    I can think of many, many words that could also finish that sentence.

    Never thought I'd say this, but Sean Lee playing really screwed us. That and the Rams OL is flat out dominant.

    The Cowboys front 7 was man handled. Didn't matter who was in there. I think LVE was benched.

    Little Known Fact:

    The Rams starting O-line were on the field together for all 16 regular season games.

    Yeah I remember them saying that. Imagine that. Chemistry and consistency are key in the trenches.

    LVE wasn’t doing any better than Lee. There’s not a single player on defense who earned his paycheck.

    With what happened to our DT it's not. It's hard to make run fills when the line is getting washed and driven most downs.

    Only stat that matters :

    "Jason Garrett is now the longest tenured NFL head coach who has not reached a conference title game."

    Turn off the electricity for the whole block , everyone's party is over .

    I was saying after the 49ers game the Rams probably found something. The Rams offense was stagnant fit a couple weeks, teams just dropping back.

    McVay goes with a heavy dosage of Anderson the and the offense marched down the field.

    23 rushes for 132 yards.

    It’s clear they needed to force people to start respecting the run.

    Tonight...Antwaun Woods got obliterated...one double team after another...and our coaching staff did nothing to stop it. Honestly...I don't think we blitzed even once tonight. @ least not one double A gap blitz...which we usually run half a dozen times in a game.

    We did a lot of uncharacteristic things tonight....and it just seemed to snowball. And then we would do even more uncharacteristic things.:banghead:

    I would argue that Jason Garrett's stats of making and winning in the playoffs are the only stat that counts because tonight it looked to me like he got out coached again. Couldn't make the necessary adjustment again. Just plain showed that he has no business being a head coach again.

    Thanks a lot David Irving for being such a mental midget all season long that you couldn't or refused to get on the field to help our Dline, especially now in the playoffs, when it mattered most!
