What happened to the Cowboys last night?


the same crap that's plagued them under the entire Jason Garrett error.....

Speaking of stuff to make you nauseous, did anyone see the display of idiocy AGAIN from Schiano this week at the end of the Raider game??
I was never more embarrassed watching the end of a football game.....I really seriously hate this fool......

Instead of taking knees when running out the end of the game he calls this idiotic handoffs to Doug Martin having him run around like a moron in the backfield to kill as much time as possible (Raiders out of timeouts and they show the Raiders coach with a "WTF is this stupid crap" look on his face)..... Martin ends up losing 20 yards on the drive (which was hilarious mind you), but once again at the end of the game with things over and the other team ready to concede and get the hell out of there, he has to be a damn clown and embarrass himself again.....I was wishing someone was gonna clip Martin's knees out during this joke....I can't stand Schiano as IS....all this end of game stupidity is just justifying it...it annoys me the NFL network said nothing about it....take the damn knee and get out of there (then again I'd not blame the other team for torpedoing Freeman if he DID take a knee)....I know making friends around the league is not a job requirement, but Jesus have a shred of class at the game's end......

Jerry Jones while making tons of money off the history of the Dallas Cowboys has pretty much made them a joke, post Jimmy Johnson.

That being said, there is a Special on the NFL Network looking at Jimmy Johnson and how HE built them into Superbowl Champions, which could have been a dynasty if Jones wasn't so insecure.

I didn't see the end of the game, so I just looked at the play-by-play of the box score to find out what happened. Since Oakland used their last time out after 1st down with 1:31 to go, the Bucs could not kneel down twice to end the game. Two kneels would leave about 7 seconds left so if you didn't want Oakland to get the ball back, you would have to waste a bit of time running around which the Bucs did.

Here is the thing though. Because Oakland called timeout with 1:31 left down 10, making sure Tampa could not kneel down two more times to end the game, I think that gives Coach Schiano cart blanche to do whatever he wants. It was Oakland's dumb timeout that made it so the game couldn't end after 3rd down. But something tells me Mr. Schiano does not believe in kneeling down anyway. So Denis Allen might have been pissed after the 1st down wasn't a kneel so he called timeout. One of those, if you aren't going into victory formation, I am not conceding the game as a coach either....type deals...which led to this crap.

Proper NFL protocol is to kneel 4 times if it is more than a 1 score game and turn the ball over, where the losing team left with any clock will also kneel to end the game.

Holy Crap! When did thei Eagles become the worst offensive line in the NFL. They made the Saints D look like the 85 Bears.
Vick is endangered with every snap and no holes for McCoy. Yikes.

Should be an epic comedy of errors against Dallas from both sides.

The slights against Miami and the Super Bowl Champion Giants are just bitter envy coming from a blind Jets fan.

I am afraid your take on Flacco seems correct. The potenital to be an elite QB is there for Flacco, but for some reason he can't seem to make that hurdle on a consistent basis. We are winning ugly, but will get crushed by NE, or Houston come crunch time.
Our D is weak but we are making some plays when it counts. But without Lewis and Webb it's an illusion of strength.


NE is back to paper-tiger status until further notice. They can fatten up the point differential at any time as we saw againt the Rams, which always looks good at a glance in the standings, and there are some bad offenses that can't take advantage of the Patriots' D, but come playoff time, I think they can probably lose to anyone, including the Ravens. Put it this way...I won't be surprised if they lose to anyone who makes the AFC playoffs. It's crucial that they find a way to nab the #2 seed...they need as short a path and as much help as possible come playoff time. That loss against the Ravens really hurts NE from a tie-breaker standpoint...if NE finishes as a #3 or #4, no way they get to the Super Bowl...no way their D holds up.

The key thing about Flacco is that you can win with him, provided enough other pieces are in place for him to succeed. The elite QB class doesn't always take home the prize, as we've seen many many times.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

What pieces will fit? The Ravens defense does not look good at all. In the last 15 or so years we have seen dominant QBs win titles or historically good defenses. With Big Ben and Eli, we have seen outstanding quarterbacks backed by fantastic defenses.

Nothing in that time period has shown the Ravens will win this title.

My point was you can win with Flacco if you put him on a good team with pieces in place, and don't necessarily have to rely on him. I didn't say the 2012 Ravens fit that bill.

With teams like this year's Ravens, you can look at them one of two ways...even though they're -7 in point differential, the fact that they keep finding ways to win bodes well for them...or you can say that they've been very lucky, and that they law of averages should rear its ugly head any day. At any rate, they're 6-2...not a bad place to be.

The Ravens being 6-2, along with the Falcons being 8-0 or the Bears and Texans 7-1 show how ridiculous the NFL season is. There are simply no great teams right now. I'd be quite surprised if any of those 4 teams ended up winning the Super Bowl, let alone making it. For what it's worth, Vegas agrees because only the Texans are in the top 5 in terms of Super Bowl odds.

I just can't give these teams credit for pulling out tight wins against bad teams where the other team's coaching staff do more to hinder their chances than the players do. I think that goes for any team coached by Garret, Rivera, Shurmur, and Crennel.

You have a handful of teams capable of greatness at times, but none that can really sustain it. The Bears intrigue me because they're managing to play good defense in an era where the NFL doesn't seem to want anyone to be able to do that.

Flacco is usually great in the playoffs, but I don't believe in our D without Ray Lewis and Ladarious Webb out and Ngata and Reed both playing badly hurt. Suggs isn't even 100%. But if we can just keep winning we are just as good as NE, ATL and Chicago.
