You've got to give the Dallas Cowboys credit: No team self-destructs in the spectacular fashion like they do.
Dallas led Green Bay 26-3 at halftime, and it looked as if it were heading toward a huge win. But the wheels totally came off in the second half, and it somehow managed to drop a 37-36 decision.
The defense was atrocious yet again, with 248-year-old defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin once again powerless to stop his unit from being eviscerated. It marked the second consecutive week that a backup quarterback shredded the defense, as it made Matt Flynn look like a combination of Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
Then, there's the play-calling from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan and coach Jason Garrett. Their inexplicable decision to not run the football with an effective DeMarco Murray is mind-numbing.
Quarterback Tony Romo takes much of the heat for his late interceptions, but he should be last on the list of people to blame. Romo's offense played well enough to win. It's not his job to prevent Matt Flynn from putting the ball in the end zone.
And there isn't enough space here to talk about how poorly Jerry Jones runs the team's football operations.
Garrett's decision to blame Romo after the game for changing a play that led to Sam Shields' interception was laughable. A true leader points the finger at himself, not at others. Garrett is clueless and needs to be fired, regardless of whether Dallas qualifies for the postseason.
And even if they do make the playoffs, the Cowboys will get blown out by either San Francisco, Carolina or New Orleans.
