The Cowboys' season ended yesterday evening with a 19-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The game was tight all night, and both teams had an opportunity to break the game open, but it remained a one-possession game throughout.
The outcome was different from what everyone wanted, but the Cowboys had plenty of chances to win the football game. Now questions will linger once again as they move into the off-season.
Many of those are the future of current players' contracts, players who are set to become free agents, and more.
Pollard was the juice of that offense this season, and not saying the Cowboys would have won, but the game probably would have ended a bit differently.
According to multiple sources, Pollard suffered a fractured left fibula that will require surgery, typically requiring a three-month recovery. The injury now leaves the door open for the front office to decide what to do with him and Ezekiel Elliott before next season.
Jerry Jones didn't take long to speak to the media after the game was over, saying how sorry he felt for the fans, and blah blah blah.
We hear the same thing every single season.
Is there any decision that needs to be made on Mike McCarthy’s future with the Cowboys? “No,” Jerry Jones said. “No, not at all.”

Quinn will have plenty of chances to leave to become a head coach somewhere.
This is the worst. Waiting to see if the front office will take the necessary steps to help get this team further than the Divisional Round.
Everyone is going to have their thoughts on what this team should do. Unfortunately, at the end of the day, all we are is just another voice.
We know the core group of players will probably be run back out here next season for another try. Whether we like it or not, if the Pollard injury didn't show the guys up in the booth that this team needs more playmakers, then I don't know what will.
Lamb had 10 catches for 117 yards.
The next leading receiver for Dallas was Dalton Schultz, who had five catches for 27 yards.
How can they look at this and think this is enough to get it done?
Nonetheless, they had enough to win this game. The injury to Pollard hurt, the interceptions hurt, and the dropped interception by Diggs hurt. Yet they still found a way to stay in the game.
I'm not holding my breath on Jones and the front office making splash moves to help this team.
