The Cowboys are now apparently afflicted with "Mavericks Syndrome", an affliction characterized by melt-downs against supposedly inferior opponents. I need someone to explain to me how an offense that is possessed of Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, Jason Witten, Marion Barber, Terry Glenn and a massive offensive line, struggles even to get to 17 points against a supposedly beaten up NY secondary. When someone can explain that to me, I'll know what to include in the suggestions I'll be sending via email to the Cowboys for what they can do in the off-season beyond "FIRE THEM ALL." Also, if anybody happens to know Jerry Jones' email address, please feel free to email us with that.
UPDATE: Rafael Vela at The 'Boys Blog reminds us that a) the Cowboys have had worse days and b) plugging some gaps in the secondary and maybe picking up another quality receiver will go a long way towards fixing this team's problems. Unfortunately some of the problems yesterday were the kind that aren't fixed by acquiring more personnel, like stupid penalties at crucial moments or odd play-calling. But there's still plenty of hope for next season. It just sucks that this season is over so soon.
UPDATE II: In happier news, the Mavericks are-thanks to a win over Phoenix in December-first in the Western Conference after a close call with the Clippers Saturday night. Just like the Mavs of the last two seasons, the Cowboys find ways to win even when they play poorly. Until the playoffs that is.
