    If the runningback did not take it outside, there would be no holding call. Running it up the middle would have sealed the deal since there would be no holding call.

    I'm sorry but holding can happen no matter WHERE you are running the ball, so long as you HOLD. Running it Outside, Inside, Backwards, Forwards, makes no difference. No one Holds, no Holding call.

    I see your point. But that holding call happened because he brought it outside. If he ran it as what it should be run, there is a less possible chance of holding. Frankly, it didn't look like a hold to me. But your odds of something bad happening when you do something like what Tanner did. Remember, we are the Cowboys. Something always bad happens during these moments.

    This is wrong. Coming off the last time out, we could have ran 40 seconds off the clock with 67 seconds left in the game. We punt, Detroit has the ball inside their 10 with about 25 secs and no timeouts. Game Over. The thought of a clock stopping penalty or turnover never occured to JG, even with a rookie carrying the ball.

    This is horrible clock managment. Why do you think Detroit declined? They wanted to conserve the time, at that point they conceded the field goal.

    I just read that Advanced NFL Stats’ Win Probability calculator said the Cowboys had a 99 percent chance of winning when they took over on downs.

    Oh my God I'm sick
