Witten says there's a core group of Cowboys who know well the feeling of close losses

Tight end Jason Witten said there are no moral victories, but that the Cowboys have a good group of players who are making strides.

Still, they failed to get the job done.

A feeling a core group of them knows well.

“You know, you play in enough of these like a core group of us has and unfortunately been on the losing side of it, and everybody questions our toughness and fight,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of guys with some true character, you know. But at the same time, you want to be able to find a way to come out on top. Nobody you’d rather do it with than the men in this room, and we’ll get it turned around.”

Witten said the Ravens deserve credit, too.

“That’s a good team. To come on the road, play them tough, have a chance in the end and not capitalize, it’s tough,” he said. “We’d like to have the two-point conversion and obviously a little more yards to give Dan a better shot at it. Give them credit. Thought we did a lot of good things. But there’s no moral victories. Obviously they’re a very good team. You don’t walk away saying, ‘Hey, we played a good team close.’ You walk away saying, ‘Hey, there’s an opportunity we lost’.

“We got to bounce back. We got a good group of guys that play good football, making a lot of strides. At the end of the day, you’ve got to execute better and get the win.”

Witten...and that therein lies the problem with this team. Core players who are still in La-La Land when the game is at crunch time. Guys who can't get it done when it matters most. No playoffs this season. It's time yet again for Jerry to replace another two or three core players on this team. Starting with your best bud...Romo.
