    This is the second time in three weeks he's accepted a holding call on third down, after the defense stopped them.

    What's Tim MacMahon thinking? His judgment on this second-guessing is way off.

    I mostly agree. I don't like Barber being used as a speed back. He is a power back, and he consistently shows why he shouldn't be considered a speed back.

    I though 3/4 of those decisions by Garrett were correct. The only one I dont like is toss to Barber. Dallas just needs to come to play to Barber is the correct call.

    most defenses would love 3rd and long scenarios all day long. Dallas just couldnt stop them.

    I scratched my head both times. On the surface the one against Detroit looked worse because Detroit still would have had much more than one yard to go if we had declined, but the Saints weren't going to go for it on 4th and 1 at midfield because they were easily in control of the game at that point and they didn't want to give Dallas an opportunity to get back in the game.

    Sure they do, but they also love making the the other team punt. By declining the Saints may have had 4th and 1 rather than 3rd and long, but they would have punted with 4th and 1, and isn't the point to get the ball back?
