Cowboys have adopted "we have to get better" ,"focus on the positive" in the post game speeches. Reminds me of Capers and "execute" or Kubiak and "It's on me"

Garrett is gone after this season. That team is underperforming big time. Just throwing it out there, but I bet Mike Holmgren gets a look as the coach. He flopped as a GM in Cleveland, so he won't have power over personnel anywhere he goes. Could be just what Jerry Jones wants...a big name coach while he still remains the GM.

They accept this stuff and still pay for everything.
We made the best out of a horrible situation. The roof and end ones were open so most of Arlington probably heard the boos for both Jerry & Romo. Oh yeah there was plenty stadium noise and much more than the 3rd qtr. graphics. Lol Oklahoma was good after game therapy.

At first I thought World Series, but that didn't start until 8 ET. Also, no west coast home teams.

The middle finger is longer and behind the index finger, and he's falling backwards. Middle finger wins.

Dallas is an undisciplined team. How any Cowboy fan could be okay with their performance on Sunday is crazy. They dominated the Giants in every statistical category except turnovers. I am not a Cowboy fan but the thing that is so frustrating with Dallas is that their talent level is insane. They could easily be one of the top teams in the NFC if they just wouldn't beat themselves so often.

This just crossed my mind, but maybe it had something to do with Denver & Arizona/SF having primetime games. West Coast teams are usually the teams to get the 3:00 PM games, and they were either on the road (SD, Sea) or had a late night game (SF, Ari, Den). The only exception of course being the Oak/KC game that was at 3:00.

Doesn't matter. A finger isn't enough to establish you in bounds. Same as a toe isn't enough.

You have to get 2 feet in bounds OR you have to get an elbow or knee.

A finger isn't enough to get you in bounds but it is enough to get you OUT of bounds.

Nitpicking, but Not completely true. The hand is the only thing that doesn't count if it hits first. The rule is a) possession and b) any part of the body except hand. So if his fingers were in and his rear hit like it did, then catch.

http://static.nfl.com/static/content...ass_Fumble.pdf

Item 3: End Zone Catches.��If a player controls the ball while in the end zone, both feet, or any part of his body
other than his hands, must be completely on the ground before losing control, or the pass is incomplete.

You know, just after I posted this I realized i should have expanded to include other parts of the body. I got caught up with Madden's old "an elbow equals two feet" thing.

The bottom line is a finger or hand in bounds, like a toe or a foot, isn't enough to establish you in bounds. But a finger, hand, toe, or foot OUT of bounds is enough to render you out of bounds. So in this case, it wasn't really a close call. He had fingers out of bounds so he was out of bounds.

Yup, I knew you probably meant that and knew but I just wanted to state the rule.
