We knew it was going to happen today or next week. But this was truly spectacular. Stunning. Dallas was down 48-16 at one point. The 48 points they surrendered are the most ever scored against the Cowboys in any playoff game ever. It was the worst playoff loss in Cowboys history and the first time in NFL history a #2 seed lost to a #7 seed. This was undoubtedly the most embarrassing playoff loss ever for the Cowboys.
Jerry Wayne says he is floored. He claims that today’s loss is incomprehensible. Really? Costly penalties. Dak’s interceptions. Poor tackling. Getting outcoached. Being a high seed and choking at home. That IS the Cowboys. Twenty-eight years and counting.
Will McCarthy be fired before I can finish this post? Will they finally let Dak go before he becomes only the third quarterback in NFL history to start for ten years for the same team and never win a divisional playoff game (Tony Romo and Archie Manning)? Does Dan Quinn take a job as a DB coach with an AFC West team out of desperation? Will Charlotte and Steven petition to have Jerry committed? Does Will McClay change his mind and take that gig with the Saints? Is Jerry on the phone right now with Bill Belichick? Pete Carroll? Nick Saban? Barry Switzer?
