Que the Cowboy's callapse
 
Boy do i love this annual event.

The entire team (not just Romo) just lacks the mental discipline to execute late in the season in combination with a tough schedule.

Anyone else see the Skins beating these guys in 2 weeks at home?

This is discussed in so many threads... Although I did call this coming the same day we should have beat them in Dallas...

My favorite time of the year, makes you want to snuggle up with a warm banket and hot cocoa, and enjoy the collapse..:)

Wait wait wait- you predicted the Cowboys would fall apart in December? Wow. Way to go out on a limb!:)

I tell you Karma has me scared to say much, but here is a quote from the Mod at a Cowboy site, good guy- well run site like ours here, and it strikes me that our two franchises have faced similar struggles, and while I like seeing them go down their fans (not the idiots) have suffered mightily (I am not crying or sympathizing, but also not gloating, it is what it is). This quote is from their equivalent thread to Smoot's Smackdown.

[QUOTE]It took me a longer to start this thread than it normally would. I wanted to have an idea of how serious the injury to Ware was before I even started thinking about this thread.

I want to be honest with you. I am growing weary with a lot of things. It has been impossible for me to enjoy a football game for several years as this team continues to falter and the fans continue to be upset. Wins or losses it doesn't matter. I haven't enjoyed a game in so long it's hard for me to even remember when it was. I try to enjoy the wins and even those are miserable around here.

I can tell you this, it has not been in the month of December that I enjoyed a game. I hate this month of the season. I am sick to death of hearing the pissing and moaning. I am sick that we even have to because once again, December is kicking our teeth in. Screw Santa Claus and his month of greed.

I dread game days and that feeling is so foreign to me that I can't even explain it. I love football. I love football discussions. I love this place. So I keep coming back even though I dread it.

Do you remember when Tony Romo was what was wrong with this team in December? I feel horrible for the guy. Two straight weeks he plays good football, and 2 losses get saddled on him. The thing that truly bothers me is I don't believe we lost to better teams. I think they are about even with us, but we still have gone from in charge of our destiny to the 6th seed with a juggernaut in the horizon coming closer.

I don't believe we can beat the Saints. I have not since about week 6 and we were winning then. Yeah, I know they aren't playing great right now, but we are not motivated enough. The longest current losing streak the Cowboys have against any team is the Saints. We haven't beaten them since 1998 and have lost 5 in a row.

I still think this is a good football team. They are not opportunists though and I have no idea why. I have read every hair brained theory out there and hatched some crazy ones myself. I can't even sell myself any more.

That sounded kinky.

Strange fact of the day. We have played on the Ides of December (December 13th) 9 times after today. We won the first 5. We have lost the last 4. The last three losses on this calendar date have all been by the score of 17-20.

There are no excuses for these losses. I'm not superstitious, but I can't help but wonder what has brought this bad luck.

We left points on the field yet again. We did not execute. Instead we're getting executed. No turnovers, few penalties, and we once again racked up decent yardage. We still can't kick a Field Goal. If we're going to go for it on 4th and goal, don't hand it to the lead back.

This team does just enough to make you love the players, and just enough to make you have ulcers.

I don't know about anyone else, but the loss of Ware hurts more than the game loss to me. I am numb to those in December any more.

I think this loss sealed Wade's fate. I hate to say that, because it isn't really what should determine his future. The media and fans will not be behind him and the team cannot save him. Not even a march in the post season will save him now. It could have for a while, but Jerry cannot gamble any more that guys will fight for him. They fight, but they don't win.

That's the name of the game.

I hate December. This decade has sucked. I'm weary of it all.[/QUOTE]

Great read.

As for "karma" of whatever voodoo nonsense...we've already lost many more major players to possibly career-ending injuries, so if anything, Dallas has more to come to catch up to us.

The Saints will kill them and we'll beat them to OFFICIALLY eliminate them from the playoffs.

I think the pokes will rebound & beat the Saints. N.O. just clinched a 1st round bye, sure they have home field to play for, but this team is not playing its best now. They're due to be upset.

I won't be upset about it if this does happen, cause we'll get the pokes a week later & they'll be overconfident.

It feels pretty good. I'm not going to rub it in though, b/c we can't throw stones over here. We're generally not even in a position to have a late season collapse.

The Cowboys have alot of talent though, enough that should be able to get them into the playoffs and further. I suspect alot of changes w/ both teams this offseason.

Yesterday, was nice though. Good to see ol Norv get a W in Dallas.

Romo should be called Mr. November. He probably has the best winning percentage of all QBs for the month of November, only to follow that with an annual swoon. The Dallas December Doldrums have become as regular as the lunar phases.

All together now, QUEUE THE COLLAPSE. Bet Dallas knows how to spell it.
