You could always use the excuse that they were resting.

..........but no, it didn't look like that now did it?

Philadelphia Eagles 10-6 Dallas Cowboys.
in Dallas with T.O.... shame shame.

I honestly feel bad for ya LJ. Gotta suck to lose to this eagles team. Then again, maybe it was a wake up call to win the next 5 in a row.

Couple news snippets:
"As bad as it sounds for Dallas (12-2), the Cowboys knew before kickoff they’d secured a first-round bye — and that they couldn’t lock up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. So the stakes were pretty low. And they played like it."

“We came out flat. We just couldn’t get anything going offensively,” Owens said. “Maybe this is good for us — a gut-check.”

"The Cowboys lost both Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode and starting defensive end Chris Canty to left knee injuries during the third quarter..."

So, one could say that the Cowboys have a coaching problem.
Health is the #1 priority when a team is already with 2 feet in the playoffs.
In fact, nobody rested from the Cowboys last night.
In San Diego, they began resting their stars after the first quarter.
Ladanian played the first quarter. Gates came in for one play.

Thats kinda funny, cause i've been told, after giving the Charges as a superbowl team that they don't stand a chance because of coaching.
From what i've been seeing, looks like the Chargers know their priorities better than the Brokeback mountain boys.
Hell, if the Cowboys keep this up, they won't have anyone left to play after the week 17 game with the superbowl Redskins

you're high.


but, i will say that for the first time this year, jason garrett called a poor offense. they abandoned the run altogether in the 4th quarter. they got the ball with 7 minutes left, and could have just ran it down the eagles throats with Barber.....but they kept passing on first down...taking sacks, etc. trust me...i've been playing madden long enough to know this kind of thing.

Whip, it may be that Dallas is just fodder for one of the supreme teams from the AFC, but they are far better than any other shitty team in the NFC. I know that isn't sayin much, but they can only be compared to what there is in their division.

It shows you how vulnerable this cowboys team can be.
It only takes one game to get kicked out of the playoffs.
The superbowl is yet to be reached.
Could you imagine Romo's episode against the Seahawks last year repeat itself?
So yeah, the NFC is open, and given the fact that the Packers are far from being contenders, it could be a wild card that makes it.

I must say, as much as Aikman was a hated rival all those years, he does fine work in the broadcast booth, and so does that Daryl Johnston.
