All Good Things Must Come to an End

As we are all aware of, our Cowboys season ended today at the Metrodome in Minnesota. The Cowboys offense could not get anything going today. The offensive line broke down, they lost Flozell Adams early in the game and the they had to play catch-up all day. The defense played well for the most part, but they could not hold up for the whole game.

It was a nice run from our Cowboys who were projected as an 8-8 third place team in 2009. What we got was a team that grew together during the season and won a division championship. They beat the Eagles three times and knocked off the undefeated Saints when no one thought they had a chance. They won in December when no one thought they could. They won a playoff game when no one thought they would.

Am I upset at the loss? Not really. Disappointed? Oh yea!! All week we heard how the Vikings offensive linemen would not be able to hold up against the Cowboys defensive line. When in fact it was the other way around today. The Vikings rush was relentless and Tony Romo was running for his life all day. The Cowboys got beat by the better team today. I can’t get upset over that.

So it’s on to the off-season. Let’s hope this playoff loss is a building block for this team to improve themselves in all areas and get better for next season. Get better with the draft and maybe add one or two players in free agency. I can’t help but think back to 1991 when the Cowboys went to Detroit and lost 38-6 in the second round of the playoffs. That game vaulted the Cowboys into winning three of the next four Super Bowls.

My Offensive MVP goes to Tony Romo for improving and not letting the media run his life and Miles Austin for becoming one of the best young receivers in the NFL.

My Defensive MVP goes to Keith Brooking for making the defense one of the best in the NFL and Mike Jenkins for having a great second season and leading the team with five interceptions.

Congratulations to the defending NFC Eastern Division Champion Dallas Cowboys on a great season.

    We were far from ordinary this year and I have faith in God and our Boys that they will see more greatness next year. I’m hoping that Brookings remains and does not decide to retire and that we keep growing as a TEAM, and add more playmakers to this already potent Dallas Cowboys.
    My only question is, with the Superbowl next year in Arlington and a possible year with no salary cap, does JJ pull the pin for a chance to have the Ultimate Home Field Advantage?
    Great year folks, see ya on the flipside…..

    Lets not mourn over a 3-34 loss? Im sorry but I am PISSED at these guys….playoff win yadda yadda the hex is gone, but COME ON 3-34? WHAT THE FREAK!

    Vikings wanted it wayyy more…thats the least that can be said. I am happy they got past the first round but give me a f’n break….wtf happened to the O-line? D made stupid mistakes..no long balls..wtf? Continuous running even after fail and fail attempt. Can win em all but could they have least SHOWED UP this game?

      I really hate the expression “they wanted it more”. You mean to tell me that the Boys went into the game thinking that it was alright if they didn’t advance? The Boys lost because the Vikings were the better team and they executed better. There were no long balls because Romo was running for his life all game. They ran into a better team today and that was it.
