    4th - 2 (20+ yard) jump ball.

    Would have gone down as one of the greatest plays in Cowboys history if he had maintained the catch and sent us to the NFCCG.

    Instead it's remembered as an over officiated segment of pop culture.

    Shame really.

    This. If he would have just wrapped up the ball and come down protecting it, we had the ball on the 2 or 3 yard lone. Dez was too careless and tried for a TD. Still kills me.

    Nah. It's just an asinine take.

    Do I need to take you step by step through the play?

    Nope. Seen it enough time, thanks.

    Calling out a player for trying too hard to score is just a ridiculously dumb view. And it validates that it was, in fact, a catch.

    No. I actually need to step you through it. You didn't see what you thought you saw.
    If Dez would've tucked the ball in instead of reaching and leaving the ball exposed to the ground we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    Dez caught it and the NFL screwed the fans out of a fantastic finish.

    Screw job *note the non call on Suh’s hold which the NF admitted they got wrong and would have made it 4th and 16 for the Cowboys; also Dez running onto the field with his helmet off and arguing with officials.

    If any of those calls went the same way against Dallas instead of Detroit, the same people complaining and crying about Dez’s non catch would still be whining about these calls/non calls.

    The NFL screwed Detroit out of playing Green Bay, Dallas should have never been there in the first place. What comes around, goes around. Karma is a you know what.

    We beat the Seahawks at home in that season, no reason why we couldn’t have done it again.

    lol in the link you posted, it says that Dez actions don’t warrant an automatic penalty and it’s to the refs discretion.

    And literally in the same paragraph they discuss the suh play it says “Cowboys informed of several missed calls against Detroit”

    so yeah, valiant effort to discredit your favorite team and fans, but no screw job. Thanks for doing the leg work

    Not only was that a catch we win that game. Rodgers has a history of choking when his team is down late in the game.

    I mean maybe if we would have been better and not all about stats, he could have gotten a ring. But he wasn't so he doesn't.

    We beat the Giants twice in 2007. Lost to them in the playoffs.
    We beat the Packers on the road without Dez in 2016. Lost to them in the playoffs.

    Regular season success against a team does not mean much when it comes to the playoffs.

    Can’t believe advocating for a player to make a smart football play is being characterized as an asinine view.

    The number one objective of that 4th down play was to get a first down and continue the drive. Dez securing the ball would have meant we met that objective. Exposing the ball attempting to score ultimately brought the refs into the equation when they didn’t need to be. End result was Aaron Rodgers took the next snap instead of Tony Romo.

    I’ll gladly be thought of as a moron by anyone who thinks wanting Dez to secure that ball is an asinine take. They are probably the same people who want DBs to try and intercept a Hail Mary pass instead of batting the ball down.

    On 4th and 2, why did romo opt for the bomb? Why not pound Murray or throw a quick out/slant?

    granted, we were screwed but right when he let the ball go I was screaming at the tv
