First-Half Observations

No. 1 - Get the regulars out. If the last play of the first half is any indication, when Tony Romo was walking off grimacing after a sack, it's obvious there is nothing more to gain. Get 'em out.

No. 2 - The running game is off again. The Cowboys have rushed eight times for minus-3 yards. Not exactly a momentum builder.

No. 3 - DeMarcus Ware should receive NFL Defensive Player of the Year votes. He has two sacks and a forced fumble today.

No. 4 - Terry Glenn's big impact will be made on a later day. He's played a few plays, took one big shot, and hasn't made a catch. The first pass intended for Glenn was intercepted by Shawn Springs.

No. 5 - Beware the Redskins. The Cowboys defeated the Redskins in their first meeting, but the game was close. This game may not mean anything to the Cowboys other than for the sake of some records, but the Redskins know how to play the Cowboys. These two could meet in the divisional round of the playoffs, too.

No. 6 - What is it with FedEx Field and the Untimed Down? The last time the Cowboys were here the game ended in one of the most bizarre finishes ever when the Redskins were awarded an untimed down on the last play of the game that ended with a game-winning field goal.

On the last play of the first half today, the Cowboys were awarded an untimed down because a half can't end in a penalty on the kicking team. Rather than try a long field goal by Nick Folk, the Cowboys tried a Hail Mary but Romo was sacked.

I´m so dissappointed in the fact that this team has no heart. For a team that has yet to win a playoff game to be playing like they are the Patriots, it just shows the lack of emotion and pride this crop of players have. It also shows that for all the good Wade Phillips has done this year, he is terrible at getting the best out of his players when they don´t want to play for him. I´m disgusted with this performance and that of the last month of the season.

If this team does not put together a good solid drive today, they are done! They will never make it paste the second round the way they have been playing since the second half of the GB game.
