    From the outside looking in, the Dallas Cowboys’ season is about over.

    A blowout loss to the Panthers on Thanksgiving Day sent the team to 3-8 on the year and the cellar of the miserable NFC East. They also lost their quarterback, Tony Romo, for the season during that game, to a re-fractured collarbone. Romo had returned just five days before to beat the Dolphins, and end the seven-game losing streak the team went on in his absence.

    Suffice to say, things aren’t looking great for Dallas.

    But the men in the locker room aren’t ready to cash out just yet, according to veteran linebacker Sean Lee.

    "If you're not motivated to find a way to win, you need to get off the team," Lee said, per the Dallas Morning News. "We need to make a move now. We have no more room for errors. We have to find a way to win games, get on a run if we want to save the season. We can't have performances like this. There are no excuses. We haven't played winning football, and we have to start doing that now or we're not going to be in the playoffs at all."
