He should relieve himself and family of on the field duties

 

The Cowboys have one of the top  QB's and talent on offense & defense and won their Division. Their roster is considered among the better ones I'm the league.

They must lead the league in stupidity. They had 14 penalties and many were pre ball snaps.

But that's not on Jerry. He and his brain trust have put together a good roster and a Top 10 QB. The penalties are I would say more on coaching than stupid players.... and Jerry is in charge and  coaches are his responsibility too but if I was a die hard cowboy fan this year I certainly wouldn't fault Jerry or want him to retire. He loves his team and tries every year, no matter the cost of building a winner.

When Manning was the Colts QB, downed players would get up and hand the ball to the umpire so it could be set right away, especially during 2 minute drives. Dak takes off and runs, is down with 8 seconds left, and hands the ball to the center instead of the umpire. 

 

Just little things where attention to detail can be the difference between winning and losing. The run play was risky, but if they had the proper operation dialed in, they had a shot to get another play off.

Yeah, it was a gutsy call, but if executed properly, would have gave them a better chance.  To be honest, they shouldn’t have gotten into that position in the first place.

It was excecated poorly on almost every level.  Dak should have slid earlier and gave the umpire the ball.  They would have had 1 more play.

  I have seen a 100's of dumber things occur on the FB field.

 It certainly did not cost them the game. 

  If the dude that needed to touch the ball had hustled a little more and hadn't had to fight his way through the Dallas lineman... Dak did take an extra step though and HE should have raced to the official.  

 Cowboys fans can now argue over it. Tastes Great, Less Filling?

  Dak Prescott, Leon Lett?

Not even close. Have you seen the hate the Colts have for a play executed against the pats? This mistake doesn't hold a candle. 

You are referring "The Three Stooges" lineup. It was the worst of the worst not even in Pee Wee league has that been seen.

Very true, but the reality is that is extremely unlikely that  one last desperation play would have changed the outcome. They lost the game before that but the talking heads will focus on that last play lol.

I agree that they lost the game before that. They got jumped on at the beginning of the game, and committed a ton of penalties (2nd primetime Dallas game I watched this year where they committed a gross amount of penalties; and procedural penalties, at home, which are inexcusable). But they fumbled away their very last chance to win on a play that displayed the lack of preparation and attention to detail that likely led to the issues just mentioned above.

 

To me, it's kind of a microcosm of their issues. Focus, discipline, attention to detail, etc. Such a talented roster. If you overlaid the Colts penalty numbers over the Cowboys roster, it's probably a 14 win team, would have had a bye, and been hosting a divisional round game. I have my issues with the Colts coaching decisions at times, but outside of an outlier game here or there, they do a great job of avoiding stupid penalties. It probably helps us with a win or two every season.

And you can bet they practiced it over and over again. Repetition of small details and things like that make a difference in situational football.

If they practiced it im sure Peyton made them. There was a reason it was said Peyton was a coach on the field. 

 

Its kind of crazy to me. We don't see a lot of things like that anymore. The no huddle gone. Fake handoffs with ball in hand very seldom used. 

 

Time management has changed for the worse. 

 

The things we all thought were pretty damn normal even in 22 arent being done.

Absolutely. The legendary QBs, the ones most successful are those who never settle for good enough. They strive for improvement and perfection day after day.

To me if you dont have that QB it falls on the HC to step up in these areas. Maybe that's too much to expect from a HC?

    • Jackson averaged a league low 2.4 yards per carry last season and was even a backup at Duke where he averaged under 3.8 yards per carry 2 of his 4 seasons. He isnt a pass catching back either. Last off and pre season was behind JT,Hines,Mack,and Wilkins so was 5th string.   https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/deon-jackson-1.html
    • JMV said he was told to look for Foles to be a colt sooner then later.   Also said the Julio Jones rumors were just some talks. My guess is they want TY back and maybe that is a backup plan.
    • I have no issue with streaming, aside from the fact that all these streamers have created a segmented market for content. But it's their content, so no sense in complaining about it. I don't have to watch everything.   But I don't like live sports via streaming. I like being able to set my DVR, pause, rewind, fast forward through commercials (which is the biggest reason streamers want a piece of the pie, because then you have to watch all their ads), re-watch the broadcast later, etc. I don't like being interrupted by buffering, and then missing a piece of the action as it catches up. I want to be able to pause if I have to take a phone call, or give my attention to anything else for a few minutes. I'm not a fan of the impending migration of sports, especially NFL games, to streamers exclusively.   And I think local games still have to be broadcast on local TV (I believe???), but I'm not in Indy, so this doesn't help me for Colts games.   I tried to cord cut a couple years ago. Tried out different services for live TV -- Hulu, Youtube, Sling. They have some decent offerings, Sling even has Redzone, and it's Scott Hansen, not Andrew Siciliano, so even better. But all the limitations on how/when you watch, whether you can record, if you can pause, etc., plus unpredictable buffering and outages, sent me back to DirecTV and Sunday Ticket. Eventually DirecTV is gonna go to a streamer, sounds like Apple, and that's really gonna suck.
    • How do you come away with Moore and McBride? They went back to back, #54 and #55. We drafted Woods at #73.
    • He's still no Mike Evans, not so far.
