    Totally understood ya bro. My hope was in response to Risen that the CZ population that knows that nothing will ever change as long as there's a Jones in charge, still needs to have something to post about or why have a Forum?

    Baby steps I guess you'd call it.

    And for entertainment purposes only from here on out at this point.

    Plus, I just don't like McCheese too.

    However Risen he is a bigger drawing card than MM which we know Jerry likes.

    Anyone that still defends the play call to run the ball is a lost cause. The coaching staff is braindead for calling that play. End of story.

    they should have stationed the practice ref 20 yards behind the play to allow for the time for him to show up to the party

    Did you see the defensive alignment. The DB's were aligned to prevent the pass to the sideline. The middle was open, which is why the run up the middle was called. It really wasn't a bad call with the goal being to move the ball closer for an easier throw rather than a deep throw it up for grabs, but the execution was bad.

    I can defend the play call, I just can't defend the execution. The play call should have had the same result as a 10 yard sideline pattern, but the sideline pattern wasn't available because the DB's were positioned to prevent it. The team (Dak mainly) just did a terrible job of executing it.

    And that’s been my question all along. Why didn’t we look to hand ball to a ref. We weren’t even looking for one . There was enough time if we had.

    Either they weren't coached well on the play, or they just choked it on the field. If Dak had gone down a few yards earlier and they had handed the ball to the ref after the slide they would have clearly had time.

    All true if that was the official that was responsible for spotting the ball he needed to keep up with the freaking play.

    He showed a total lack of urgency with only a few seconds left and squandered our opportunity as slim as it may have been

    Right

    Not even sure he needed to slide sooner. There was 8 seconds.

    No one looked for a Ref. And even got in his Refs way costing a couple more seconds .

    Hard to say must be something with this franchise because it sure took Romo a while before he got it down.

    And by that time his body was done

    Payton is a football guy. He calls the offense and dictates just about everything when it comes to the team. This is exactly what the Cowboys need. I coach that won't have to dictate to Jerry.

    McCarthy is nothing more than a "YES" man. Play Zeke more over Pollard. DONE. Put back Collins at RT over Steele. DONE. Don't tell Moore what to do. He's the OC. DONE.

    If Payton was here any bad call the refs make he will make it known his pissed. McCarthy just goes on his merry way like Santa during Christmas.

    The most infuriating part is you know Kellen drew that idiotic play up thinking it was some genius and innovative move, and McCarthy signed off on it. And both of those guys are coming back here next season.

    For the life of me, I just can’t find excitement or optimism for this team right now.

    Maybe because he was in the next zip code when he should have been on top of the play

    Definitely was time even with Dak running as far as he did, but there wasn't any room for error with him running that far. 5-6 yards shorter would have allowed the team to get lined up faster and for the ref to get there a little quicker.

    Of course, they still needed to hand the ball to the ref. That was the biggest goof.

    The ref isn't supposed to be running on Dak's hip for 17 yards. He starts several yards behind to begin with and watches for penalties. Dak just ran away from him.

    Was not a bad play call. Was just at the wrong time.. mid 3rd quarter it would have been a good call. Then roll him out and if he has open field take it again. Get them up to the line and hit a seam route..
