    Gerald Sensabaugh and Anthony Spencer of the Dallas Cowboys celebrate after the Cowboys recovered a fumble on defense.

    Okay, let's just this out there: Gerald Sensabaugh was obviously held on the 74-yard Brandon Jacobs touchdown run.

    There, I said it.

    This isn't to say that this would have changed the game in any real way--the Cowboys had their chances and, even if it might have changed the outlook, I won't descend to the level of Buffalo Sabres fans and whine about it: "Hull was in the crease...boo hoo." But for the sake of clarity, there was a hold and it was really clear. We'll chalk it up to the humanity of the referees, and let Sensabaugh explain the situation.

    (In a kind of related aside, remember when Gerald Senabaugh came to Dallas and was said to have 'character issues'? Through thirteen weeks of the season, he's been, dare I say, a 'character guy.')

    "You can say the guy did a good job of blocking, I guess,'' Sensabaugh said in the Dallas Morning News.

    "Look, I know officiating is hard. I'm not the type to complain about plays, about calls. I know how hard it is to ref a little league basketball game. That's hard enough. You're always going to get criticized.

    "But that's a play that should have never happened. I'm not going to make any excuses. They played a good game and they beat us.''

    Well said, Gerald.
