Week 18 GC: Dallas @ Seattle

This game was chock full of bad officiating. Severaly ticky tack penalties on Dallas, most notably the supposed pass interference that set Seattle up with 1st and goal, which eventually led to the Glenn fumble, safety and subsequent TD. That's an 8 point swing because of one questionable call. Not to mention reviewing the play when they had already granted Witten the first down at the end of the game. I thought you had to have concrete evidence to overturn the original call? I'm sorry, but there was not concrete evidence that Witten didn't pick up that first down.

Although Romo's choke job is what lost Dallas the game, the f***king zebras sure didn't help. But what else is new?

Ah yes, the last refuge of losing teams - blaming the officials.

Um, it was apparent to everyone and their mother (with exception to the side judge who was about 5 yards out of position to make that call) that he didn't get it after the review.

The truck's license plate? T-A-T-U-P-U

Frankly, let's not give all the credit to Romo for the loss. The mere fact that you didn't pass on our completely inept secondary was the bigger blunder, and frankly, deserves more credit.

You should have had a bigger lead. It wouldn't have put your team in a position to be subjected to a botched field goal. And more importantly apparently, in your eyes, the horrible officiating.

/hats off to your offensive playcalling.

When in doubt, blame the refs - the favorite scapegoat of the losing team.

That was pass interference and the Cowboys should have won it regardless.

Agreed. The guy did grab his arm and hold it, but the only questionable thing was if it was a catchable ball or not.

I put this game on Terry Glenn. He is the one who messed up and alowed 8 points for Seattle to take the lead, not Romo.

Didn the ball land in the endzone? It def. was catchable and the hold was obvious. And the Seahawks didnt even capitalize on it so blaming it on the refs is not the way to go.

But I completely agree about Glenn. That was a huge swing in the game. Glenn and Romo lost this game for the Cowboys, not the refs.

If you lost to the Redskins in the manner we have in the first game last year, and last game this year, you would see where we are coming from :-b

That was the difference right there. Romo should have been picking apart that secondary and it didn't happen.

I don't disagree, but that doesn't matter. Even without doing that, the Cowboys should have won. That's why it hurts so much. We don't rationalize and say, oh well, we didn't play up to par against their secondary...it shouldn't have mattered. Dallas should have won that game, and they coughed it up, which makes this so difficult to swallow.
