I was at the game yesterday. The Dez Bryant almost catch happened right in front of me. And for about 3 minutes everyone in the stadium thought the Cowboys had pulled out a miracle victory. They didn't show any replays in the stadium after the touchdown signal. We all thought that the game was stopped simply because Dez Bryant was hurt. And then the official overturned the call. Devastation.
I swear the Cowboys find a new way to lose every time they do it. They literally lost by a fingertip. And really had a great chance to win even after 6 turnovers. There is no way a team should have a chance to win a game with 6 turnovers. The Cowboys did because the defense played great football all day long.
Unfortunately the Cowboys just kept turning the ball over. I felt like Romo atoned for his first half mistakes as he led the team back from a 23-0 deficit. But then Felix Jones had the most ridiculous fumble in a clutch situation I have seen in a long time. Who tries to switch the ball from one hand to another in the middle of the field with defenders all around. Felix Jones sucked all game long and he blew it when his team needed him the most.
The Cowboys have to be the most frustrating team in the league to watch. They seem to have enough talent to compete with anyone but they make so many stupid mistakes it is hard to believe. You would like to point the finger at someone but it seems to be a different guy nearly every time.
On the bright side it was great to see Jason Witten show why the Cowboys only made Martellus Bennett a low ball offer to stay as the #2 tight end this offseason. He is a future hall of famer. Too bad it seems that his talents are going to waste as the Cowboys continue to be stuck in mediocrity.
The season is slipping away very quickly. It really feels like the Cowboys need to reel off about 4 or 5 wins in a row to really get back in the playoff picture. Based on what they have shown so far I have no confidence that this team can do it.
