The Dallas Cowboys’ divisional-round loss to the 49ers was gut-wrenching for many fans, and “Undisputed” co-host Skip Bayless was very much among them.

Shouldn’t that be good enough to win a playoff game on the road against the vaunted 49ers with the last pick in the draft playing quarterback? I thought we could score 30 against them — silly me — and we got a grand total of 12.”

But time, even a short amount of time, can heal all wounds. Bayless even admitted as much on the “Skip Bayless Show” on Tuesday in response to a listener question about what happened to his Prescott jersey.
Bayless pointed out that he had once before made a big show of tossing his Prescott jersey in the trash after a bad Cowboys loss to the Titans in 2018, but Dallas soon…
