The Pain is Over ’til Next Season
The Cowboys had proven they were just a mediocre team half-way through the season when they lost their second game against the Redskins. It showed that the Cowboys can, and will, take perfectly good games and hand them to the other team. The season was a roller-coaster of emotions for fans, players and coaches; most of which were dam painful. Last night, the Cowboys put a fork in themselves to end it.
The pain is over, but I expect to see myself rolling on the floor in agony again next year.
I will resist commenting on the refereeing more than this run on sentence, but there was much pain in the many little things that the home’rs got in their favor (will they ever call an offensive pass interference against the home team, or was it too loud? false starts?); of course, I’ve seen much worse.
Now I’ve got the Patriots and Giants (and maybe even the Jets) to root for through the rest of the playoffs. I hope they provide some pain relief.
