Another loss indicative of the season...and really, indicative of many seasons of the past 20 or so years. Winning a game late and allowing the opposing team to hang around and finally giving up a few big plays to blow it in the end.

On top of that, pathetic clock management and communication. How many delay of games were there? I think the worst one was the one after the Skins had driven down inside the Dallas red zone. Of course, it was quickly followed by a false start, IIRC.

The game was lost in the first half, despite having a lead in the 4th quarter. Not being able to punch it into the end zone after getting that close was pathetic.

This whole season has been a **** sandwich without the bread. Fortunately there's enough to spread around between the coaching staff and the players.

Decent crowd today but it got too loud when Dallas did something well. You could feel the air get sucked out of the stadium when Romo sits to pee scrambled and hit that bomb in the 4th quarter that helped set up their touchdown.
