This has got to be the most disappointing season in the history of the Dallas Cowboys. Oh, many seasons ended with the Cowboys not winning the championship, and others have had disappointing finishes, but none have been like this.
The Cowboys were the preseason favorites to win the NFC Championship and get to the Super Bowl. After the first three weeks of the season, Dallas had the look of the best team in the NFL. Tony Romo, Marion Barber, Terrell Owens and Jason Witten were firing on all cylinders, and there was no way this year would end with anything less than a Super Bowl.
Then the Redskins came into Big D and knocked that smile off their face. The win showed the league that Dallas can be contained and beaten. The next week saw them barely squeak out a home win over the lowly Cincinnati Bengals. From there were losses in Arizona and St. Louis (one of the Rams' two wins all season) and the Cowboys were suddenly 4-3 and without Romo for a month.
