Not for nothing but Mendenhall was going to receive the veteran's minimum this year (700K) if he decided to play. Makes me wonder if he would've gotten a bigger contract would he still feel the same?

Well, it's the end of one of their seasons, so... Paging BornIcon to the white courtesy phone.

/picks up phone

Hello...? Hey what up?! Of course I'm still here!!

When you look at both of their stats with 15 games under their belts, they're surprisingly similar and both teams are 8-7.

Romo: 3828 yards 31 TD 10 Int 63.9 Comp %

Rivers: 4249 yards 29 TD 10 Int 69.7 Comp %

Verdict? Rivers is at least still fighting for a playoff spot.

And so are the Cowboys.

As for Romo, he has a slight (or slim) chance of playing after getting an epidural shot to the back today but the effects of the shot won't be known until about 2-3 days. He could also play depending on if the disc is hitting the motor nerve or just extremely painful. If it's hitting the motor nerve then he is definitely out.

Only having won five Super Bowls must be so hard.

I try not to live in the past.

The only thing missing from watching the Cowboys weak attempt at holding a lead is the Benny Hill music.

I don't understand why Dallas ran so little in the fourth quarter...

I brought that up when Dallas lost to Denver 51-48 a few weeks ago.

This has been an on-going theme with the Cowboys and I'm getting sick of it! All they had to do was run the ball considering DeMarco Murray was averaging 8 yards per carry and let the Packers burn their timeouts. To unnecessarily keep chucking the ball was such a mistake that I knew when they abandoned the run that they were going to lose.
