The Dallas Cowboys have lost in December...again. If this sounds all too familiar to NFL fans out there it's because it is.
But here is the twist, the Cowboys were actually up and had a lead in this game. A big one, a twenty plus point lead to be exact.
The Green Bay Packers were down at halftime 26-3. But the Cowboys strayed away from what made them so successful, namely their running game, and blew the huge lead.
With a number of drives ending with field goals and questionable play-calling by the Boys' coaching staff, the Packers sneaked back in the game to eventually take it 37-36.
At this rate Romo's right, the Cowboys will now have to win next week to even have a chance at making the playoffs.
But it isn't just Romo that's to blame for the team's recent struggles. Coach Jason Garrett and Coordinators Bill Callahan and Monte Kiffin have all made suspect calls in "crunch time."
Toss in an overpowered owner (Jerry Jones), a popular opinion, and you have a recipe for... well, for something bad at least.
The Cowboys are out of sync on all levels of management and it becomes more and more evident each time this team plays.
If they can improve communication between Jones and Garrett/Callahan/Kiffin and Romo, things will slowly get better. But the playoffs are approaching and it seems that more than ever now, losing simply isn't an option.
