    The team used Zeke's suspension as an excuse to quit, and just collect pay checks. They won't win again until he's back, and maybe not even then if they've completely tanked like I expect.

    I don't agree with this, it might change but I don't think the entire team quit Sunday. Before Lee went out our defense was pretty dominant, we were constantly in the backfield and laying the wood to people.

    Now as the game wore on you could see a lot of players who were clearly frustrated (especially with the officials) and I think you could say some of them through their arms up and were saying "WTF?"

    The only players I think "quit" was Chaz Green and maybe Darren McFadden. There was a report before the game (Jane Slater I think) that said McFadden had been sulking or something for weeks.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    The moment any adversity was faced the team threw in the towel and proceeded to get stomped. "It's ok, though, because Zeke was suspended," was the thought in their minds to justify it. I know too much about human psychology, especially of the snowflake millennial athlete, to be convinced otherwise.

    Again... This is why I detested the attitude of the front office (especially Stephen) during and after the 2015 disaster year. One, they acted like they were all waiting for Romo to come back and save them. Two, after the year Steve blew it off as well, basically stating that we still have the best team, we just were hurt so we couldn't possibly win. And of course Robot Garrett never said anything different. Never did anyone act like that streak of losing was unacceptable, or that there would be consequences.

    That kind of attitude makes losing acceptable. You just use the convenient excuse and everything is fine.

    In any event, you've accomplished the near impossible......to have a thread closed/locked on DCU.

    I quit watching after the missed field goal, what did McFadden do in the game to give you this impression?

    He just fell over on the one run play he got, also missed badly on a pass protection.

    Then there was the report in pregame about him too.

    It was still 10-7 and 17-7 into the 3rd quarter too though, so am not buying the team quit thing.

    Losing Sean Lee killed the defense (as usual) and the offense could never get anything going because of what Chaz Green and the officials did.

    That said, I halfway am expecting a really, really bad blowout Sunday night.

    Theebs posted it at CZ

    Said Jane Slater told the guys on the station (Ticket I think) that she was being told McFadden was sulking for quite some time.

    It was in that pregame thread.
