And I am completely speechless.

From the roughing the passer call on Parsons that obviously not roughing, followed by a smirking Derek Carr, followed by him grabbing his neck to not even being taken to the sideline right after words, to the weak, but still warranted PI calls, especially the one that essentially iced the game. Lets not forget about the forced fumble that wasn't really a fumble according the refs..good gravy.

I can't help but think of the wildcard game Dallas/Detroit, Anthony Hitchens on Brandon Pettigrew, that the flag was picked up. There is precedence that warranted the flag to be picked up. Now, granted, Hitchens was grabbing Pettigrews facemask, and Anthony Brown wasn't. Y'all may have seen it differently but I saw the WR purposely grabbing the back of Browns helmet to make sure he couldn't turn to find the ball?

I was on board with more aggressive play calling, so I have to ask, what in the living daylights?? Your offense finally finds a way to come back and tie the game...gutty performance, and I use that term loosely, you take the ball. You miss your chance on 3rd and 4. Were is the aggressiveness going for it on 4th and 4? I could accept a loss by a field goal in certain situations but not like this. Did they really expect the defense to be able to make a stand????

I am just so lost with this team. Yes, Dallas is still in first place of the NFC east and is sitting at 7-4. The bills are 7-4, New England 7-4, Kansas City 7-4. We should be happy about being at 7-4 because that's good company to be in right? Wrong. It's not so much that Dallas is 7-4, it's how Dallas lost to the Denver Broncos, the Chiefs and now the Raiders.

Normally I am the one that tries to look at the bright side of things and find something positive to bring other peoples hopes up, but after this, I don't even know where to begin.

One thing I know for certain on a scale of 1-10 with how worried I am starting to get with the remainder of the season, I am sitting about a 8, that will especially be the case if Dallas can't beat the Saints next Thursday night. Dallas, through this last stretch of the season could go 5-1, but for what? Now earlier in the year, Dallas proved they can over come adversity, penalties, TD's that were not ruled TD's that led to turnovers and won the game. Great, huzzah, where is that fire?

One thing I learned yesterday...Dallas isn't nearly as deep as people think or seem to think at wide receiver. Ok fine, 2 players went over 100 yards, so we should just break out the bubble? With Coop/CeeDee out, other receivers had the chance the step up, now granted Dak missed wildly on throws, but there were other throws that were nearly perfect and receivers dropped...when you have receivers that are starting to develop a nasty habit of butter fingers, your not as deep as you think you are.

On a final note...y'all at least try to have a great rest of the week.
