10. Sorry, but let’s stop the “Sean Payton!!” cries before they get started. Yes, he coached in Dallas under Bill Parcells, went to the same college as Tony Romo and owns a $3 million home in Westlake. He might be a free agent after the Super Bowl. But why would Payton leave New Orleans, where he’s won a Super Bowl, has a great relationship with owner Tom Benson, has a quarterback named Drew Bees and possesses more power in personnel decisions than he’d ever have in Dallas?

9. Well, we got what we hoped for. The Cowboys scored 1st for only the 2nd time this season, they committed no turnovers and even were gifted 2 missed field goals by one of the best kickers in the game. And still lost. The Cowboys didn’t beat themselves, but they still got beat. That’s why, to me, Sunday night is perhaps the most demoralizing loss of the season. Just aren’t a lot of “If”s to irrationally hang future hope upon.
