Coach Jerry actually makes more sense than Coach Fassel.
What an idiot....
Fassel is wrong all the way around. He only compounds it by crying about the refs call. And this is in no way defending the official and missing the hold.
Fassel screwed things up in the first place having his players attacking and in that position.
It was a dumb call and I’m not giving him a pass for it, whether he coaches fit the Cowboys or not.
I hope he’s conveying that to Fassel personally.
Two games in and special teams definitely cost us one game and nearly cost us another.
If this pattern continues you’re looking at a ‘Garrettesque’ record of 8-8-1.
Im going with @CowboyRoy lol.
and that is your view, again I did not agree with the fake punt vs Washington but I want to see Dallas be aggressive at times even on special teams. Are there risk? sure every time we blitz there are risk so should we never blitz?
On 4th and 20 it makes no sense...if it was humor on his part, that "joke" doesn't really make any sense either...
I’m not making excuse for bad calls or giving them a pass.
There are times when a play like that might make sense, that wasn’t it. Fassel coaches special teams like he’s bored. He takes reckless risks that seldom payoff in a vain effort to create excitement. It’s certainly not smart nor sound football.
And where does his special teams unit rank again?
4th and what makes sense? Or is it Dallas should never go for block punts? I would say 4th and less than 5 makes no sense because running into the punter carries 5 yard. So is there is distance that is appropriate?
Bones is not helping himself with that comment. Despite what he thinks the fans want, it is possible to be aggressive without being dumb. Players can avoid the kicker.
You don't blitz on a hail mary attempt at the end of the game...they were giving the ball back to us and that was much more important than field position.
I have no issue with you having an opinion. That was not the time, when is it? your pretty much saying never go for blocks. I don't agree with it
yeah and you don't go for the block when you have less than 5 yards for the 1st down.
Oh yeah for running into the kicker...but we also were finding the only way to give them a first down @ 4th and 20, etc. so we flipped that rule lol
Well, only if you assume the fans want it.
Can't believe he actually said that.
I think he thought he was being clever with that comment to throw shade on what a poor call it was...just laugh it off type comment. But it didn't make.any.sense Good one bones!
Who is Jori Epstien? Local media?
WHY is the ST coach talking to the media???
We all know Jerry is going to run his mouth to the detriment of the team, but they've got to reel in the rest of them from saying whatever whenever.
This is scary when i actually agree with Jerry
Yes so it 4th and 10 better? fact is roughing carries automatic 1st down so by your reason no time would be the right time. If that is how some feel that is fine, keep things close to the vest avoid any risk. Myself I like seeing some aggression on special teams.
