Cowboys' collapse

OK, a day removed from watching the Debacle at Texas Stadium, my view of the Dallas Cowboys' postseason hasn't changed all that much.

Personally, I don't see how this team is going to last past 10 p.m. Central time on Saturday night. Certainly not playing the way it is right now.

What's wrong with the Cowboys?

Where do you want to start?

The defense is terrible. Their only pass rusher it seems is DeMarcus Ware. Without a pass rush, the secondary is exposed for what it is. The only guy that appears to be able to cover is Terence Newman. The linebackers aren't playing much better. Bradie James is making a ton of tackles - way down field. And did we mention they can't get off the field on third down?

The offense is erratic. Tony Romo is starting to show his inexperience and his decision-making wasn't the best in the world on Sunday either. Still, the Dallas offense put up 24 points (Newman's punt return was good for the other seven).

And special teams didn't help with an inability to cover punts.

That being said, anything can happen in the posteason. Just look at the St. Louis Cardinals.

However, until proven otherwise, I don't expect the Cowboys to flip the switch on Saturday.
