It may mean nothing in one single game as anything is possible..... but it does tell a lot when Cowboys struggle this much for the entire season.

Have you noticed how almost every big play going the Cowboys way, is a close call if there isn't a flag?

Have you noticed the game is tied at 17? Go away

The Titans are deserters, they should burn

Listen, I'm a Cowboys fan and have been my entire life. I get very excited when they win and when they lose. I am very critical of this team and they still have done nothing to prove that they can make it. When they have slow starts they are more than just unimpressive. I still contend that they should get a new coach, although I will admit that Phillips defensive schemes are good.

I will not go away. I will be here keeping it straight, giving completely unbiased assessments. It annoys me beyond comprehension when there are Cowboys fans who always want to justify every bad move or mistake the Cowboys make. It also annoys me when there are Cowboy fans who cannot take honest criticism of this Cowboys team, which they are so worthy of.

And for the record, I am cheering the Cowboys to win this game.... but I will always always always always always give strong criticism when they deserve it. That being said, I do not get how Bhoeler makes a 51 yarder but misses a 40-something yarder. That field goal miss will probably cost them if they don't make a TD. Why does it bother you if I make a honest assessment on this team? I've never understood that. I get as much upset as you do when Cowboys lose.

And there you go... last two possessions, Cowboys take it all the way to the 30 and 20 yard line. Result: a missed field goal and a thrown interception.

My point is that shouldn't happen. I'm not expert on this, but I really think the coach has a lot to do with this.

I never met a fan who overreacts over a 14 pt lead in the 2nd qtr. Did you know that if a team is down 14 and scores a TD they are only down 7???

I wasn't only reacting to their 14 point deficit. I was also reacting to their horrid mistakes. You didn't answer my question... why does it bother you so much that I am only being honest? I'm on your side here.... and you get upset that I'm only being honest?

This is ridiculous! I'm only speaking of facts and reality here.

Albeit, I think Cowboys are taking this one.

Because you already had the Cowboys at 1-3 due to the fact they were down 17-3 with 2 qtrs to play.

And why is that my fault?

If the Cowboys play this terrible they certainly are capable of going down 1-3. That is after all, why I get so upset.... and why I am so critical of them.

Now that it's 7 mins left in the 4th qtr and Romo just threw a INT that led to a TD, it may be over but the score is 27-20 and Cowboys have a chance to respond. If they don't score on the next drive then that maybe it
