Did the Cowboys win yesterday?

It's official. Cowboys actually suck.

Oh dear...they're in first place! I guess that means the NFL and ESPN don't think they suck.

Perhaps it's some of the posters in this thread who are the ones doing the sucking...big ones, perhaps! LOL!

Dallas 6 2
Philadelphia 5 2
NY Giants 3 4
Washington 3 5

I think the Cards are going to be the first team to play in a Superbowl @ home. We'll find out more next week. I am a Giant fan , like most people from this area. I never understood the behind the lines Fanboys . I get the Packer backers , that jersey was issued back in the 60's and resistance was futile.

I couldn't care less about records. Waking up with Skins beating the pukes makes the day brighter, the food a little better, the wine a little sweeter. HTTR

I have to admit I didn't see the game... but the Cowboys have been playing like a real team lately. So.. .did they lose or did they lose "Cowboys Style"? You know... late interception, botched field goal, etc? Were there any sideline tantrums? Did anyone cry? Punch their mothers in the mouth?

Because in all sincerity, if all they did was lose then I'm not interested. I want them to retain their mantle of Clown Princes of Football... the Dallas Globetrotters (but without the ball handling skills).

I'll go read the recaps and see if it was an "amusing" loss or not. I'm guessing they lost to a highly-ranked team though, right? Some team that's like in the top 5 of the "power rankings"? (Because, you know, those are the only numbers that really matter)!

they lost cuz colt McCoy busted their azz and romo got hurt in the 3rd qrt than came back in the 4th and and couldn't beat the all man blitz/disguise

they are still a very good team. I guarantee they win the division. wash just played better defense + room got hurt. dal is still a dam good team. they are the real deal

I did read a few game summaries and it seemed disappointing to me - seems like they went out with a whimper and not a bang. To be fair to the Cowboys, though, they had to play without their first string quarterback for a significant part of the game - hard to win when your starting QB isn't in the game, I guess.

The back up QB for the Pukes led them on two drives for 10 points. Romo being out did not hurt the team at all, in fact, had he not talked his way back into the game it may have been better. They lost to Washington because it was a division game (records don't matter) and because the Pukes coaching staff had no answer for the Skins defensive schemes - and for some reason stopped giving the ball to Murray. Also, the young guys on the Skins D stepped up having been given the chance to play - lastly, Jay Gruden is learning as he goes on how to coach.

I doubt very much that the Pukes win the division. They likely lose this week in Arizona. Philly is the class of the division this year, grossly enough - and they are not that good. It is still the NFC Least for a while longer.

But... surely you'd have to admit the Cowboys were at a severe disadvantage in that game playing against such a powerhouse team as the Redskins? I mean, come on! I personally have never heard of Colt McCoy but I'm assuming that he's an even better quarterback than RGIII. I'm guessing Colt's win/loss record must be astronomical since he led the Redskins to victory over the Cowboys.

I mean, fair is fair, it's not like the Cowboys are a "show and blow" team, right? They're a dynasty, man! Don't you remember the 1980s?

90's , right ? Packers 60;s , Steelers 70's SF 80's Boys 90's Pats 00's

I've got the yummers for Sunday's showdown. My Boys will be ready. When we take the field, God and America will herald our Big D, DM, JW and Romo -- yes, he will play, friends.

80's, 90's... the point is, once upon a time the Cowboys were a good team. That apparently counts for a lot (though for the life of me I can't imagine why).

Your right , I don't like the spell correctors either.

Are you absolutely sure that Romo playing is a good thing?

I think that the name "Romo" dates back to early Latin roots and translates into "interception".

Actually, I have to confess that I was in error here. Colt McCoy is NOT the new QB sensation for the Redskins... I've discovered that he's actually the 2nd or 3rd string QB who was playing while RGIII was injured.

Still, the fact that the Cowboys almost beat them is a testament to... well... ummm....

Did you read where the Cowboy who beat up his mom was disappointed at the Cowboy who shoplifted underwear? Sadly, this is not the start of a joke.

Here's the story of his initial behavior followed by his obviously heartfelt apologies:

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle cracked jokes and acted flippantly while being booked in the Frisco, Texas, city jail following his Oct. 13 arrest for shoplifting, footage obtained by CBS affiliate KTVT shows.

"If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?" Randle asked a female jail employee, who replied with a stern, "No."

Randle was charged with a Class B misdemeanor after stealing underwear and a tester bottle of cologne from a Dillard's in Stonebriar Centre Mall. The retail value of the items was $123.50.

Joseph Randle, who is accused of stealing underwear and cologne from a Dillard's department store, was shown on a jail video joking around after his arrest.
Randle, who was wearing a white tank top and black pants, mocked concern about his appearance for his booking mug shot.

"Take a good picture," Randle said. "I'm not about to look like I'm a criminal in this mug shot. How's my mug shot look?"

Randle also asked why height and weight weren't listed on mug shots.

"This is not a damn trading card," a male jail employee responded.

Randle was reprimanded for making an unauthorized phone call. He was heard telling the person on the line to leave the door unlocked for him.

"Do you want to get you another charge on you? Are you crazy?" a female jail employee asked, ending the phone call.

During an authorized phone call, Randle mentioned that he needed an attorney to get him bonded out so he could attend practice the next day.

Later on, Randle did express some concern about the potential consequences of his arrest.

"Hey, is this gonna be on the news, you think?" Randle asked.

and later....

A fifth-round pick in 2013, Randle met Tuesday with Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones and coach Jason Garrett, and Jones told USA TODAY Sports "significant discipline'' was imposed on Randle, who rushed for a season-high 52 yards on five carries in Sunday's 30-23 win against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

Jones said significant discipline would not include a suspension.

"It'll be a major fine -- game-check range, and he'll do some other things that go with it: community service and things like that we'll want him to do – significant discipline,'' Jones said during a sit-down with USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. "Unfortunately, that's why he fell a little bit in the draft, just a little bit of the off-the-field stuff.

"He doesn't necessarily make the best decisions. And he made a bad one there. He understands.''

Randle said Wednesday he addressed his teammates and apologized.

"It was hard coming back in the locker room looking people that care about me in the eyes knowing I did something stupid," Randle said. "I can't just go like nothing happened. I had to address the issue. It was time to move forward so it's not a distraction moving forward. We're playing our rival team, the Giants, this week. That's what we're trying to focus on."

Randle, who ranks second on the Cowboys with 113 rushing yards, will have to earn his way back into the organization's good graces.

"I don't think this is the norm for him,'' Jones said. "He's come a long way in a couple of years. He'll be a good person and a good face for the organization ultimately. It was a good learning experience for him.''

Randle said he has never been in this kind of trouble before.

"I'm just trying to take full responsibility and really just move on from it," he said. "It's the biggest mistake I've ever made in my life. ... I've never been in any kind of trouble in my whole life. This is just something I have to learn from and move forward.''

Randle also said his teammates were supportive after he apologized.

"They know people mess up. I really made a big mistake," he said. "I know there's big-time consequences to pay in life. I disappointed a lot of people who really care about me like my brothers on the team, the coaches around here, this whole organization, people who have supported me. My family, my dad, I let a lot of people down.

"And I'm really trying to do my best to make it up to them, do whatever I have to do to get past this."

Garrett spoke about Randle's situation Wednesday with reporters.

"He took full responsibility for it,'' Garrett said. "There were a lot of circumstances that were surrounding the situation but there are no excuses, no explanations for this and he took full responsibility."

I had to go to a Philatelic convention yesterday so I wasn't able to follow the Cowboys game. Did anyone watch the game?

Did Tony Romo throw for 246 yards?

Did DeMarco Murray rush for 100 yards?

Did Dez rack up 158 yards on his amazing catches?

Thanks for letting me know!

Yes, it was an AMAZING victory! The Cowboys handed the Jaguars their 8th loss of the season... and Dez did add to his 'garbage time' performance in last week's loss. He's on a roll!

This year beating the Jaguars is kind of like... oh, I don't know... kind of like beating the Cowboys for the last 5 years. cheese

Hopefully the bye week won't give the Cowboys too many opportunities to pad their Felonies stats - fingers crossed!

Oh, let me just say that I've got the absolute YUMMERS for the rest of this season!

oh oh

Dez is certainly an All-Star whiner.  He didn't even wait for the play to end to start crying for an interference call.

I didn't watch yesterday's game, 

Did Chris Christie attempt to hug Jerry Jones?

Did Greg Hardy engage in any thuggery? 

Did Dez Bryant go ballistic on a teammate?

Did Jones call Hardy a real leader?

Did the 'Boys fall to 2-7? 

Dear me, everyone seems SO EXCITED for the Cowboys!

Huh!  What's the date on that one?  I seem to think it was awhile ago, wasn't it?
