11:48 AM ET 12.11 | The Dallas Cowboys are fighting for their playoff lives, and might have to take the fight to the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend without starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff. According to DallasCowboys.com, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Ratliff is doubtful to play. Ratliff hasn't played since Nov. 18 against Cleveland while recovering from a groin injury. The 2012 season has been a bit of a wash for Ratliff, who has only played in six of the Cowboys' 13 games while only accounting for 16 tackles and no sacks.

If Pittsburgh has a repeat performance of last week, it won't matter.

ESPN is reporting that Paul Tagiabue has vacated the bounty-gate suspensions...

I recall Ken Norton playing with his bicep muscle separated from his bones, and still making the pro bowl. Got a little pain in your nuts, Jay? Well maybe Jerry should have whooped you **** when you got in his face. The middle of the Dallas D is limp as it could be. The playoffs are in the balance and Pittsburgh is on the schedule. Giants are up a game and the Foreskins are a half game up. Shut up and Cowboy up, it's crunch time. You want that ring, grow a pair.
Next I want a piece of Doug Free. What the hell is your problem?

This is where we find out if Garrett is a head coach or a pretender.

I read the King article. Tagliabue said the players were "just following orders". Classic excuse for absolution of responsibility. Pitiful. At least the Saints are getting the season they deserve.
