The Cowboys have a... checkered... recent history when it comes to both late season and postseason play, from a fumbled field goal snap because of Tony Romo's promotion to starter to this year's collapse in the face of massive Redskins blitzes.However, 2012 was not a wholesale collapse or a sign that Romo is a bad quarterback, just a year that came agonizingly close to the postseason.The hope for Cowboys fans started with the recent road win against the Bengals.  The 2011 collapse began with a road loss to the Cardinals that should have been a win.The For those that don't remember: Romo took the ball with 2:54 to play in a game tied at 13 and led the Cowboys on a 9 play drive that took the clock to 7 seconds and set up a 49 yard field goal attempt to win the game.You read that right: in 2011, Tony Romo led a last second drive that should have won the game.Dan Bailey made the kick, but the whistle had blown because Jason Garrett had called timeout.  Bailey missed the reki...

The Internet can be a scary place, and this is one of those videos which makes me uncomfortable.
