Exactly. It's a big gamble, on the road, your own territory, under two minutes, but it's not like the Cowboys don't gamble. If we punt it, you could almost guarantee the Eagles would take the momentum and ram it right down our throats and run the rest of the time off.
We make it--and a good team handing the ball to Emmitt Smith *should* make 4th and a foot--we either get the win or force overtime. I have no problem with the call. It was the execution that sucked. Twice.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
