    He's an idiot because Emmitt was stopped. If Emmitt busted a 71 yard TD, Switzer's a genius.

    Best thing that happened to us - we swept the rest of the way to win the SuperBowl...

    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.

    I'll never forget that moment.. I was a kid and I was SCREAMING and CUSSING at the TV

    this is the first time I've seen that play since then... and looking back, if I were Barry Switzer, and I had all those Eagles fans screaming and yelling at my team after the 1st failed attempt, I would have called the go-for-it on the 2nd time to pound it up their *** and show them who's boss. Not to mention I hate the Eagles and I hate their fans even more.

    strategically not a good call by Switzer, but I understand it in a way

    if he would have bounced to the left side...he would have gone 71.

    instead he jumped in the air two yards behind the line of scrimmage...straight up no less.

    Switzer would've never been considered a genius.

    Having Bledsoe throw that pass in Seattle last season was a more asinine call.

    Yeah!

    Makes me think: m"aybe Switzer is a genius. He recognized what this team needed to get enough motivation to win the SB!"
