    I think Romo called it right in real-time -- Dak needed to hand the ball to the ref instead of trying to snap it. The ref had to bump Dak and the OL out of the way and place the ball -- that took 2 seconds.

    Championships are made from just one play.

    If it was done with some poise...you wouldn't be saying this.

    This is by far the best idea. Take 2 shots from the 40 but the coaching staff didn't believe Dak had the Arms strength to pull it off. No other reason why you wouldn't try it unless that was the case.

    Total lack of football IQ. Dak shoulda left a gap for the ref to go by instead of lining up like a dummy.

    The easy play was what I originally said...they were giving us the short outs, just take 1 or 2 and get the same accompllish without Dak having to run. Yet we are still talking about this

    That's the Cowboys way... death from a thousand self-inflicted cuts.

    It was not a terrible call it was just executed improperly.

    If you want to talk about dumb plays then by far the dumbest play of the game was the Randy Gregory two-arm takedown holding penalty the previous drive on 2 and 9 with 1:38 left on the clock. If he doesn't take down the O-lineman the Cowboys get the ball back with about 1:30 left on the clock. Instead, that gave the 49ers a first down and we get the ball back with :32.

    Gregory wasn't even trying to make a play. I can't figure out why in the world he just tackled the guy away from the ball especially in that situation.

    That's the definition of football dumb!

    Opinion: some folks will just make up stuff to ignore the fact that Dallas got beat from the opening drive until the final gun.

    There are (5) 49er defenders downfield out of the picture. No way he scores.

    Go down after 10 yards.

    Its comical anyway. All this was for was to get us 10 yards closer for a Hail Mary.
    Some fans are forgetting this was not for a FG.
    Dallas dominated by the 49ers
    End of story

    Looked like Wilson was coming back for a pass to him. Maybe was going to be and let him run it down and lateral it. Or let him get out of bounds..

    I just keep looking at the first pic snd seeing Noah Brown uncovered with a ton of space. Would he have gotten down and out of bounds? I know they are on the boundary but there is no one near him bottom right. There is the 3rd defender sideline deeper so probably same issues. Just thinking out loud

    Throws give you the opportunity to complete the pass OR draw PI. I haven't seen anyone talk about the penalty aspect.

    3rd option would be to run a play down the middle of the field with a convoy like KC ran against us a few years back. At some point it may turn into hot potato but at least you get a play off & give your playmakers a chance or maybe the defense gets stressed & makes a mistake.

    Anything is better than the refs just waving their arms that the game is over.

    Has Gregory addressed any of his dumb plays from this game? Looked like to me he was high based on the way he was smiling & laughing.

    It doesn't matter anymore. He and the rest of the Penalty Posse couldn't get it done. They didn't just lose the game on that horrible play.
