Just when it seemed like the Cowboys might salvage something from the final months of this season, their fortunes turned again. All the mistakes that drove them to being 1-7 and got their coach fired, and had mostly disappeared under interim coach Jason Garrett, returned with a vengeance Saturday night in Arizona. discount football jerseys

They threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns. A cornerback blew an assignment, clearing the way for a 74-yard touchdown pass. They made a valiant comeback anyway, yet continued to do things like get penalized for celebrating a touchdown and kicking an extra point wide left. That last goof authentic jerseys china gave the Cardinals a chance to win it with a field goal, and that's exactly what they did, but only after converting a fourth-and-15 against a defense that had played well most of the second half.

"This has been quite a year of disappointment -- real disappointment, real surprise," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. " you may be interested in buying cheap authentic jerseys . Some of those things we were doing out there have been with us since the day we walked out of training camp, unfortunately."

This kooky 27-26 loss did such a good job of capsulizing everything that has made 2010 so forgettable, there was even an injury to the starting quarterback.

Jon Kitna strained an abdominal muscle -- while throwing a touchdown pass, of all things -- and might not be ready to start in the finale Sunday at Philadelphia. That means Stephen authentic jerseys china McGee would have the chance to show what he can do with a whole week of preparation.

McGee was forced into action for the first time in his two-year career Saturday night and looked nervous. He had reason to be.

Garrett made it clear the team lacked faith in McGee by declaring him an emergency-only option even though the playoff hopes were gone. The Cowboys preferred using the 38-year-old Kitna against another team already eliminated from the playoffs, valuing a better chance of winning over the chance to see what the kid could do. Then Garrett called mostly running plays. nfl replica jerseys have low price but with good quality

Finally allowed to throw, McGee went 11 of 17 for 111 yards and a spectacular touchdown to Miles Austin. It covered 37 yards and put the Cowboys ahead 26-24 with 1:41 left. That's when David Buehler jerked the extra-point try to the wrong side of the left upright.
