It's been 26 years since the Dallas Cowboys were a truly relevant team worthy of being considered a contender. With 14 seconds remaining and trailing by a touchdown, the Cowboys called a quarterback draw, even though the team didn't have any timeouts left and had little chance of scoring.Furthermore, the offense didn't do a good enough job getting the ball into the umpire's hands and letting him reset the football.The game whimpered to a halt with the chances of a Cowboys comeback completely gone in a fog of obtuseness, bad decisions and missed opportunities. If Quinn returns, the Cowboys must find a way to retain their services.The statuses of defensive end Randy Gregory and linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will be interesting as well.After multiple suspensions stemming from violations of the league's substance abuse policy, Gregory finally put it all together this fall and finally looked like the top talent many projected when he entered the league. How much is Dallas willing to invest in him long-term, though?Vander Esch didn't get his fifth-year rookie option picked up, yet he still finished third on the team with 77 total tackles after playing in all 17 regular-season contests. They're a one-and-done playoff team who's clearly capable of dominating a weak NFC East but not good enough to be anything more.The collection of talent Jones accumulated in recent years will be difficult to retain, too.The clock will keep ticking, and the Cowboys won't be any closer to being considered a Super Bowl team than they were this season.
