I know, many of you will say "the season is not over" and then post some fine stats to back up your point. I'm just saying, this team is not smart and makes way too many mistakes to do anything this year.
Today we saw a very talented team with highly paid assistant coaches and pro bowl players all over the roster. They played a team that plays hungry and opportunistic. Guess what? The latter team won because that is today's NFL. The margin of error is way to small to A. Have a field goal kicker who misses and B. Make red zone turnovers and C. have special teams break down at the worst times.
I saw some great things today and the boys lost. This sentence sums up the current "window of opportunity" that the cowboys have had for the last few years. Ever since they dug themselves out of 5-11 purgatory, they have been a team that makes breathtaking plays and then shoot themselves in the foot over and over.
If they make the playoffs, they may win one game but there is no ring this year, no return to glory. Today was the day to make a statement and our team said the following "We will build your hope and then crap the bed at the worst possible time. Don't get too emotionally involved."
If you are like me, you are already involved and are really hurting right now. Maybe this post is just a defense mechanism because I am so tired of this team killing my buzz. Maybe we need a new coach.
The only answer I have is that the fine people of Arlington won't be hosting a home game this year in February.
