ARLINGTON - Cowboys fans are trying to recover from the team’s worst opening day loss since 2004. A disastrous first half saw the Cowboys fall into a 28-3 hole on their way to a 28-17 loss against their nemesis, the San Francisco 49ers.

The start was so bad it had some fans wishing for a time machine to redo the draft!

“I was like, 'Put Manziel in!' Oh, yeah. We didn`t draft him, did we?” said James Adams outside of AT&T Stadium.

A father and son who flew in from Florida to watch the game openly aired their frustrations.

“Get rid of Jason Garrett. Get the Texas A&M coach who knows what he`s doing! Don`t throw the ball on the two yard line two times!”

And what about the supposed “home field” advantage the Cowboys should have? On Sunday, it looked like there might have been more Niners faithful in AT&T Stadium than Cowboys!

“It was definitely a Niners home game yesterday; I couldn`t believe all the red I saw,” said Otis Hudson.

“I felt really disappointed that we were outnumbered. There was more red there than blue," Adams complained. “I didn`t like that.”

Jason Garrett was still searching for answers and skirting around the obvious “Monday Morning Quarterback” questions when it came to Tony Romo’s performance.

“Tony, like everybody else in this room and on that field yesterday, is human,” said the Cowboys head coach at his Monday presser. “He made some decisions over the course of the game that he’d like to have back.”

Well there’s still 15 games to play in the season and, if things don’t improve, it could be a very long season.

But don’t expect the true Dallas faithful to go running. As one fan put it on Monday, “That’s my team. I’ve got to stick by them, unfortunately.”
