    Giants linebacker Dan Conner left last night’s game with what was described as a burner, and didn’t return.
    But consider the Cowboys suspicious when defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins left on the next play, but returned after missing just one snap.
    It just so happens that the Cowboys were trying to play at a faster tempo during that second quarter stretch, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t think it was a coincidence.

    Jenkins faked IMO. He was just gassed and needed a rest.

    We shouldn't complain, we might be in the same boat when playing against Philthy with our razor thin DL rotation.

    I'd say there's zero chance of us resorting to faking injuries. One thing I like about this current incarnation of the Cowboys is our respect for the game.
    It's very possible we're gassed and getting taken advantage of by PHI, though. I'm really curious to see how they look tonight. One of the biggest potential surprises--one way or another--of this season, in my opinion.

    Right. Unlike the Giants, the Cowboys are a classy organization.

    I would like them to make a rule that you have to sit out for 5 minutes of gameplay if you go down with an injury. If it is bad enough then you should have no problem sitting on the bench. I think that is the only way to really solve the issue. They could always have a 2nd string guy fake an injury, but if you are running a no huddle than you should be able to exploit the mismatch.

    Does it really matter? From what I saw of our hurry up offense last night, he could of laid there for 10 mins. Seriously, our no huddle offense is the slowest I have ever seen.

    Jenkins was faking, no doubt, but most teams do this when needed...I complained when it happened, but realized quickly that it is part of the game...no way to stop it and I wouldn't be adverse to the Cowboys doing this if needed
