    ...Dallas probably should have won it, but the Cowboys called a timeout a heartbeat before Dan Bailey's 49-yard field goal sailed through the uprights for what would have been the game-winner at the end of regulation.

    "The play clock was running down. We just wanted to make sure that he had a real clean opportunity at it," Dallas coach Jason Garrett explained. "It was at about 6 (seconds) and we were still getting settled in, so we banged a time out to give him the opportunity to get the snap, hold and kick as clean as possible."

    Bailey's next try was short and to the left, sending the game to overtime.

    "The first one, I felt like I hit it good. Obviously it went in," Bailey said. "We called the timeout, but that is my job to regroup and make the next one. I didn't do that. No excuses. I should have made it despite the circumstances."


    I'm guessing this was Wade's fault, too ... ? :lol:

    This was sooooooooooo delicious!

    Yum, yum, yum! It tasted like crack cocaine, chocolate ice cream, and fireworks pumped into my veins all at once!

    You iced. Your Own. Kicker.

    Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!

    Every coach gets too cute, we know that for sure don't we? It's just good to see it happen to Dallass.

    No, it was Fisher's fault.

    Garrett looked like he didn't want to call the timeout.

    They showed the clip and you can see the st coach saying something to him and Garrett then tentatively calls the to.

    But the dummies had timeouts left with time on the clock. They could have made it easier on the kicker.

    I was driving when this all went down, and the radio commentators were Babe Laughenburg and some other geek.

    They both were SUPER PISSED that Romo didn't call a timeout and let the RB have a play to set up the kicker for that kick. So on top of THAT, the HC calls a timeout on his own kicker and it backfires.

    I bet Jerry Jones is putting BBQ sauce on some ass and chewing on it like a river otter just found his first fish in three days. LOL.

    I bet Cowboys nation on tomorrow's morning radio show will be FLAMING ANGRY all day long. "Woe to us! How could THIS happen to us? We're America's Team dammit! He should be fired. Jerry should fire him right now! RIGHT NOW! %$#@! We were going to win every game, run the table...until that time out ruined it all."

    Soooooooooooo delicious. It's like Band of Brothers, inhaling the fumes from a Monster Truck Show, and that little tingle you get at the end of taking a piss, all wrapped up in one! I luv it. LUV IT!

    They had 2 timeouts left when they made it to FG range, and there were about 25 seconds on the clock when the runner went down. Instead of calling the first TO, the elect to spike the ball, which runs the clock down to 7 seconds. Not enough time for another play, so they are forced to kick the FG. Stupid stupid stupid... Should have burned 1 TO at 25 seconds, run a passing play or two and call the TO when someone goes down inbounds.

    Oh, the reaction from Jerry Jones was just the cherry on top of what had been a great day.

    He was SO PISSED! :strangle:

    :thinking: I'd say it was more like shooting up a concoction made up of crack, amphetamines & METH-amphetamines before skydiving NAKED into a free fire zone ripe with psychotic cobras and rabid mongoose with an anchor tied to your feet...no on second thought that's what it feels like seeing them lose a game that either keeps them out of or eliminates them FROM the playoffs.

    Garrett is the proof that Jerry Jones is dabbling in genetic engineering. He effectively spliced Chan Gailey and Dave Campo and has produced Jason Garrett

    He's certainly giving Princeton a bad name.

    What was just as ***** as Garrett icing his own kicker, was Romo taking 20 seconds to spike the ball.:wadepalm:
