Dallas fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars in an embarrassing fashion on Sunday, 35-17, and now have little hope of a playoff appearance. They are without their starting quarterback but, the way the defense is playing, whether this matters is debatable. To use a metaphor, the Cowboys’ season thus far is a slowly but surely sinking ship.
This idea is only all the more painful considering that, two months ago, the Cowboys were a trendy pick for Super Bowl XLV. So, yes, this probably is the Cowboys’ lowest point; then again, they will play again next week, meaning that they’ll have another chance to go even lower.
“It's hard, nobody thought this would be the situation,'' Witten said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Absolutely it's the low point. I don't think anybody thought this would be the case. We felt we were a good football team. it's hard to be in this situation because you look at it and you can't even shake it.”
According to Witten, the team has given no thought to the idea that head coach Wade Phillips could be fired.
“I think guys are still going about it one day at a time working at it,'' Witten said. "I think Wade's handled it the best he could handle it. I mean, a 1-6 team, what do you say? I think we're all in it together.''
