I'm sure both Diles and Wilson read "draw" and then "screen".
Wilson was flat-footed even after the pass had already left Romo's hand.
I bet you he was thinking: "draw, screen... what the heck, pass? Why wasn't there a flag thrown." And then it was too late.
Aikman in the booth must have seen it but he only said "No flag"!
If he didn't see it then he doesn't belong there!
Technique-wise, as Jackson put a hand up to Williams' chest to jam him, the receiver stepped to one side and put a hand on Jackson's BACK shoulder to steer him away. That's a smart move by a veteran (but illegal).
Jackson needs to learn a lot of tricks of the trade. A lot of it can be won or lost within the first seven yards.
This one is another of Jackson's plight.
It has nothing to do with his ability or inability.
Playing with 10 men on the field on the Galloway's TD and now letting the opponent get away with a TD on a play like this?
