    IRVING — A day after the Cowboys were hit with 13 penalties in their 38-23 victory over Philadelphia, including 10 that were committed by the defense, executive vice president Stephen Jones said the number of infractions was “inexcusable.”

    In fact, Garrett has already taken steps to set the Cowboys straight. As Dallas was on its way to being flagged for offside and encroachment six times, Garrett pulled Kyle Orton aside and told the backup quarterback he would be delivering “800 hard counts” in practice this week.

    “We have to focus on it,” Garrett said.

    Well, when you have a pass rush as ferocious as ours you're gonna get some offsides calls. [IMG]

    In all fairness, they only had one full training camp to get this "hard count" adjustment down.

    This has been a problem for a while. Why is it just being addressed? This shouldn't be a problem for a pro team and it relates to poor coaching.

    You don't know that it hasn't been addressed before. Nobody knows except the people in meetings. Which none of us sit through.

    Jerry Jones' after the game comments made it clear that this is something JG puts a significant emphasis on in practice. It's perplexing.

    What I think is a much bigger deal--and I'm surprised people are freaking out about it more--is Claiborne lining up offsides. That shouldn't happen to a CB, ever.

    That's why I have hope for Stephen Jones.

    He tells it like it is. That number of penalties on the defense was "inexcuseable".

    Jerry would give us the "Hey we won" line.
