I gotta admit the team showed real fight in them. That's why I can't be too mad about this loss. We beat a lot of odds on the way to nearly winning that game. Heartbreaking, yes, but damn that was a good game.

Seems like there's so much jittering before the snap... or is it just me?

Penalties have to stop. The OL played a hell of a game run blocking. Seems like it's been years since we've had a performance like that. 200+ rushing against the Ravens ain't anything to scoff at. LOVED seeing that today. Great thing is Garrett stuck to the run too. Anyone notice Costa out there today? He didn't look bad... so does that mean he looked good? haha.

Bailey... Oh so close!

Special teams... ugh... that was the difference maker today.

Any word on Murray? I really hate seeing him out of the game. The Eagles and Redskins losing definitely helps, but they're still having that same issue with not being able to close out games. Granted it was in a difficult place like Baltimore with ****** officiating, but it hurts how they still made bad plays at bad times.

I can't be entirely disappointed in the game, one of the best offensive showings of the season. Hopefully Murray and Mo come out of this somewhat healthy... Knee and foot injuries seem to linger.

Clock management is horrid. Not only at the end of the game but it seems like they have trouble getting plays in. The play clock shouldn't be under ten seconds 90% of the time the offense gets lined up. You end up getting an abundance of delay of games, wasted time outs and allows the defense to jump the snap.

Defense was ok I guess, only real bust was the short toss to Ray Rice on third and long that got the Ravens in the redzone. Looked like Sean Lee had the responsibility in coverage but Rice did a nice job of bluffing pass protection before leaking out. Boldin bullied Carr somewhat but nothing huge, I think Mo did a nice job on Smith.

The redskins won actually, murray is probably day 2 day, honestly we dont need him against carolina. felix look like his oldself and tanner and dunbar can get some carries. Running the ball against carolina is doin them a favor

Anyone surprised Felix couldn't finish the game? Eeeeverytime he gets a chance he flashes something and then like automatic... he waives his hand to the sideline and asks to come out. Unbelievable.

Felix did finish the game, he came back. Felix just had cramps.

He looked good. But they all looked good against a struggling Ravens run D. It will be interesting to see how the running game progresses from here.

Oh yeah... cramps after running the ball 5 times.

I liked the flashes he showed though. It's been a while since we've seen that Felix.

I don't like that excuse. You either get cramps from dehydration, not stretching/warming up or being in poor physical condition. I've never heard of the bye week causing cramps.

In Felix's case honestly it might've been a little bit of all of the above. haha.

...

...

...

Just reflecting on the game... WE HAD IT! Damn it sucks to lose that one. I loved how we were running on them. Missed that style of Cowboys football. I had an inkling that our line was a better run blocking OL than a pass blocking one, and it if they can do this week to week then I really like our chances going forward. IF.. big if... IF we can keep a healthy stable of backs.

Penalties are just taking it to us right now. Right up the gut. Garrett needs to fix that as HC. He needs to be a harsher disciplinarian. Wouldn't you just love seeing him chew out a guy for once or give someone a harsh stare even? Oh man we need that!

Speaking of Garrett... what was up with that last series? We wasted time again! We had another chance to move the ball up before Romo just stood around waiting for the clock to tick down to 4 seconds. Spike the ball and run another play! We had 26 seconds left when we ran the play before.

Oh well... I don't want to sound too ungrateful cause the guys really did fight hard and never gave up. They battled great odds to be there in the end to win the game. I feel like there are some good things to take away from this game going foward.

I hope Demarco and Mo are alright and that Spencer can come back soon. Sucks being last place in the NFC East.

I didn't get to see much of the game because I was too busy watching the Raiders do whatever it is you wanna call what they do, but I did see Dez's TD and then his big drop at the end. That was a killer.

Seriously, in my own natural instincts I use my hands to catch....and I'm just a Joe Shmo. He's gotta know that those kind of passes bounce off the pads way easily. It's so frustrating. That's a huge difference between Dez and Miles. Miles always uses his hands!

What a game! Bailey's FG was really close... Romo had a great game, but that interception probably costed us the game.
Anyway he leaded us to two scoring drives to tie/win this game, so props to him. We need to generate more turnovers!
And by the way, that no call on the Ravens' TD when Claiborne got pushed was awful.

The kickoff return was much more detrimental than the INT...well I guess they both ended in a TD being given up, but I expect QB's to throw picks. It's part of playing the position...I don't expect a major ST gaffe every....single....week. It's like clockwork, soon as the offense or defense does something worthy of praise, here comes Joe D and his unit to ruin it.

You guys realize the Boys punted one time? Romo & Co. had 9 drives I think, and punted once. Long fields too, some bad penalties, JG needs to fix that...Otherwise..offensively the team had it going, let's hope that keeps up.

LOL always Romo's fault. If you honestly believe that Romo cost us that game you should take a step back ans re-evaluate the game. Romo played extremely well and he was absolutely clutch late-game.

Referees and mistakes lost us this one. Kickoff coverage cannot allow 108 yard returns. Ever.

I thought we played well, but the penalties killed us. 13 in all. We had 3 drives stall inside the 20-25, all due to penalties... instead of scoring 21 points we settled for 2 FGs and a Romo interception on 3rd and +10. If we don't shoot ourselves in the foot on those drives we win. You can't have that many self inflicted wounds and expect to win, especially playing a well coached team like Baltimore.

The KR was obviously a backbreaker as well.

Other than that, we dominated time of possession... I read we had the ball for over 40 mins!! That's all on the OL so they deserve some praise. Not only were they taking it to the heart of the Ravens D, but they were giving Romo all day to throw.

Sucks we couldn't pull it out because I thought our guys outplayed them, but hopefully this will be a wake-up call to the team that penalties and mistakes will lose you games.

Some good news, Mo was back on the field in the 2nd half so I guess that knee injury just looked a look worse than it turned out to be. To be honest, I was more upset thinking about losing him for the year than I was losing the game lol. Dude's gonna be a baller.

Cannot be understated, I'll see if I can find it but there's a stat out there that shows if a team runs back a punt or a kick off they win that game something like 80% of the time.

That and the dreaded pick 6 are the biggest momentum swings in football.

Aside from all the ticky tack penalties (some of the holds and illegal motions were reaaaally nit picking), we got royally ****** twice by the refs. How Torrey Smith gets away with a push off on Mo, AND they call a PI on him is beyond me. That was awful. The chop block flag was also devastatingly bad. Just put us in real ****** situations twice.

I know everyone is optimistic about it, and there's a ton to look forward to as we did play a solid game, but i hate losing like that. Games where we clearly dominate and show we are the better team, and stupid things like clock management, special teams and penalties cost us the win.

Only reason I don't feel as bad is because Philly lost and is folding up. Giants won but we have the 1 game on them already. It's a tight race in the division. I just hate that fact that when we are in tight, close ball games, we FIND ways to lose ballgames. We have never been one of those teams where when it's late in the game, and close, you just know we will pull it out.


Look at the gameday discussion threads on all our games. When it gets close to that point everyone is laughing waiting for what new way we will royally screw up, and it's always true. This mistake Garrett made though, is 1 that everyone on earth understood but him.


I am fine with bad decisions, but how about actually making one? Why is it that we were all in our living rooms, screaming to run a play, yet it didn't dawn on him? We didn't have a back-up play, we didn't spike it, didn't use the TO, do something! Even with the play Dez had, if everyone knows to spike the ball immediately after you can run a draw then call a TO.


It literally looked like nobody went over what to do in that situation prior, like it was never ran in practice or talked about in the huddle. That's just inexcusable.
