In September, Emma Raucanu had crossed the US Open, qualifications in the final, as in a dream. Not the slightest set lost in ten matches and a major title (his first on the circuit) unexpected. Comparable to those won in Roland-Garros by Michael Chang in 1989, Gustavo Kuerten in 1997 or Iga Swiatek in 2020. The return on earth was a little brutal.

Because since 1995 the championship is nothing more at the Cowboys in the playoffs.

Eleven times was Dallas in the playoffs since then without ever reaching the Conference Final - an unprecedented losing streak!

In seven of the last ten playoff appearances there was even directly in the first round the corner. This too is a negative record!

This should all be different this year.

The Cowboys were considered championship contender. After all, stood for the regular season's third-best record (12: 5) to book.

Prescott dominated the NFL

Especially the offensive dominated the NFL. No franchise so managed many points as Dallas. No competition reached as much yards.

Cowboys' new level of incompetence "

But Dallas was completely disenchanted and failed at the big flaw: the lack of discipline. The Cowboys conceded all 32 teams already in the regular season, most penalties did in the playoffs right there on and dropped out.

"This will hurt for a long time," coach Mike McCarthy said afterwards. He was specially brought in 2020 to finally defeat the playoff curse and now failed, as did its predecessors.

for the early failure is now available for "America's Team" - anyway, probably the most polarizing team NFL - only scorn and derision.

Will Omicron Protect Us From Future Waves?

  Will Omicron Protect Us From Future Waves? A variant that spreads comprehensively won’t necessarily protect comprehensively.The close of Omicron’s crush, then, should bring the country one step closer to hitting a COVID equilibrium in which SARS-CoV-2’s still around, but disrupting our lives far less. In the most optimistic view of our future, this surge could be seen as a turning point in the country’s population-level protection. Omicron’s reach could be so comprehensive that, as some have forecasted, this wave ends up being the pandemic’s last.

ESPN ​​wrote: "A once promising season for the Dallas Cowboys ends again in a completely chaotic way."

The Dallas News was clear: "The Dallas Cowboys have excelled himself and reached a new level of incompetence. "

And so came owner Jerry Jones once again completely frustrated before the cameras. "If you have the combination of these players, then you just have to be successful"

The billionaire knows very well that this team probably has little future. After all, there is in the NFL a salary cap for the teams.

And stars like Amari Cooper, Ceedee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, Micah Parsons, Leighton Vander Esch and Trevon Diggs are not paying over a longer period in the network.

So it is far from guaranteed that the Cowboys get another chance in the next few years to let the playoff trauma behind.
