I think it’s easy to get caught up emotionally when a game is as awful as it was for the Cowboys yesterday. There was nothing of value that the Cowboys can take out of yesterday’s game.
In trying to keep the emotion of yesterday’s game, we need to keep in mind that you are never as good as you appear when things are going well and you are never as bad as you appear when things tank.
It is discouraging to see a lack of want in a team this late in the season. That was a game yesterday with your number 1 natural rival, on national television with playoff implications. If you can’t get up for that game, you’ve got issues.
It’s one thing to play hard and get beat by a better team. That’s not what happened yesterday. It was a dreadful effort all the way around.
Are the Redskins that much better than the Cowboys? I don’t think so. But the Skins definitely played better football yesterday. They seemed to play with more desire.
But, there was one particularly embarrassing segment of the game for me as a Cowboy fan yesterday. With 2 minutes left in the game, why in the world was Bill Parcells throwing the ball.
Let me tell you something, when you are down 28 points with two minutes to go on the road, you just let the clock run out. There was absolutely no reason for Parcells to be throwing the ball.
The game is over. The Skins had stopped laughing and were headed to the locker room. And there were the Cowboys trying to throw the football and trying to get a meaningless touchdown.
I have a question for Bill Parcells: If Drew Bledsoe had have gotten hurt in the final 2 minutes of a blowout, what would you say toady? What was that two minutes about?
Was it about Bill Parcells being mad? Well, pick up a mirror baby. That game was disgraceful. It was disgraceful on all levels. Including coaching.
I believe the last 2 minutes was about Bill Parcells' personal anger at the game yesterday. And tell me exactly what would have been accomplished had the Cowboys scored in the final 2 minutes yesterday? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Bill, if you would have just taken your medicine and handled things properly your highly paid free agent right guard would not have spent the night in the hospital last night.
As bad as that game was, it wasn’t until the last two minutes that I was truly embarrassed for you and your team.
