We need to remember that our kids are playing in a youth rec league. They're going to get youth-rec-league-quality officiating. The bad calls are probably going to even themselves out and if these officials are not driven away, they'll continue to gain experience, they'll continue to get better, and there will be fewer bad calls.

Jordan Schultz

On the heels of the most impressive win of the Jason Garrett era and of this NFL season, the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys sit tied atop the NFC East after out-Seahawking the Seattle Seahawks 30-23 Sunday.

This comes after falling behind 10-0 to the defending champs, a team that had won 17 of its previous 18 home games. And yet, all is not perfect with Dallas -- far from it actually.
