Punt block attempts are great. Just don’t run into the kicker if you miss.
More proof that MM is not in charge or out of sync with his assistants .
The fans also want a championship.
Those that blame other people struggle to better themselves. I'd fire his butt for bringing the fans in on his decision, like that. Because that means he's not going to change.
Wow, do you give him too much credit.
It’s equivalent to Dak throwing the ball 25 yards downfield for an int on the very next play. It’s an unnecessary turnover.
.....and placed on the wall for others to see.....after reading that.
I dont know what was worse now. The actual call, or this response lol.
Okay, fess up, which one of you fans is telling Fassel we want Pollard to run kick offs out of the end zone?
I am ok with being aggressive on ST, but he needs to pick his spots. Also, if you are going to be aggressive in ST, you need a lot more talent on ST than we have.
we should try and block the punt. I had no issues with that. but did they understand how to execute it. they were really bad at it.....
A punt block is like any other call.
It works best when unexpected.
After the call, it is still on the players to execute.
True however looking at the replay it looked as if our guys was pushed into the punter actually tackled into the punter. Clearly going after a punt comes with risk but I have a feeling the discussion would look much different had Dallas blocked the punt.
I don’t think they’re great on 4th and 20, when you’re otherwise guaranteed to get the ball back to your high-powered offense.
Fassel has no excuse for calling it there. None.
The response for sure.
No excuse to run into the punter EVER. You are taught to pull up before you get that close.
I have no problem with it, I would never go after on a 4th and 4 because 9 times out of 10 the call ends up as running into the kicker which carries a 5 yard. In this case he is right the player who hit the kicker was tackled into the kicker. You pull this block off and I promise vast majority would not be complaining about it. Much like going for it on 4th, most love it as long as you make it.
and if you are tackled and held and hit the kicker? Look at the replay # 40 is holding (tackling) Kamara
And none of the odds were in their favor. They were guaranteed to get the ball back to their high-powered offense which was moving the ball consistently. The only way to screw it up was by doing exactly what they did. Coaches have been fired for less. And this isn’t the first time Fassel has made highly questionable decisions that have hurt this team. Not the second or third either. He’s been more detrimental than helpful. And he either needs to be reigned in or replaced.
Any time you call for a blocked punt attempt you are in a position to get the ball back since the opposing team is punting the ball back to you. Only issue I have is they did not get there and block it. I do agree with Fassel it was a hold and should have been called. I agree there have been calls that I did not like such as the fake punt vs Washington, totally disagreed with it but I have watched Cowboys football long enough to know that Landry and Jimmy where never afraid to go after a blocked punt. As I said 4th and less than 5 yards no I don't risk the running into the kicker which 9 time out of 10 that is what ends up getting called. In this case Fassel is right that should have been a holding penalty on #40 as he tackled Kamara into the punter
Dude lost it after his dad died I guess.
