    I was never even talking to you buddy and you insulted me. But I will play along. Where is this proof that he told McFadden to stay in bounds? If you posted it earlier then please do me the favor of posting it again. If you care to continue this conversation.

    you called every supporter of the head coach of this team names, and I reported it.

    I never claimed he was told to stay in bounds. you made the claim he was not told, it is your responsibility to prove your claim.

    prove it

    Ok, so lets move on to after the score. Do you allow your defensive coordinator to use man to man, one on one coverage on Desean Jackson when only a TD can tie the game?

    It's sad that some are so afraid of taking a 7 pt lead because of what the other team might possibly do in under a minute.

    I will take a 7 point lead over clock games any day.

    Bird in the hand.

    Claiborne one on one with DJackson was moronic when they need a TD.

    Your problem here is that you are only considering your preferred outcome. People that are concerned about your choice aren't thinking only about those scenarios.

    They are worried that a belly play on second or third down doesn't get the first, we only get a field goal and instead of being up a TD with a minute left we are up a FG with a minute left. Now your way sucks and that is not the only way that it can backfire. We had a GW FG blocked and returned against this same team in the same scenario 2 years ago.

    There is a train of thought that you can overthink things in football. It's a team sport and if you call something that you have prepared it's one thing but I don't think people have really thought through what they expect from Garrett. The only way that Garrett can communicate with the players is through Cassell's helmet in the first however many seconds of the game clock. Other than that he has to call a time out.

    If you want him to call that timeout to implement your plan then fine but this is not fantasy football. There are realities to what we ask of these people. I think that there is another train of thought that goes "this back just screwed up and I don't trust him right now to do very much. If he screws it up and fumbles the ball again or worse then I lose. I do not want that to happen when he has the yips. Who know what will happen if I call timeout and make a spectacle of it?"

    DMC was a hedcase that day and was behaving erratically. Getting stood up once on an inside run is one thing but he wasn't right in the head. Asking him to drop at the 3 yard line is not as sure fire as people make it seem.

    I hope by LOL , you realize how absurd it is to blame an offensive minded head coach for defensive schemes late in a ball game.

    I see, so you have no proof. That is what I thought.

    Well, your claim that Garrett specifically told them to stay in bounds and he ran out is ridiculous.

    So lets move on here.

    So its 2nd and 1. Do you tell Mcfadden to go down after he picks up the first down or run all the way into the endzone?

    and there was still enough time for us to score again and win.

    if McFadden stayed in bounds DAL would not have had enough time to win it.

    close a door and open a window

    I don't want to get involved in the unfriendly banter, but if there ever were a time to let a team score..........that was the time to do so for Washington. But, I don't think they let DMC score on purpose there.

    Its only absurd if you think Garrett is a lackey head coach that has no control over the team he is supposed to run.

    So lets review here:

    -Its absurd that the head coach can advise his DC to make sure he is not single covering thier big deep threat.

    -Garrett told Mcfadden to stay in bounds and he forgot

    Is that about right? LOL

    So now you are supporting McFadden running out of bounds?

    Which is it?

    LOL.......like who? I am the only one talking to you. And Im only talking to you because its funny. Your support of Garrett truly shows no bounds. Even at your own peril. This is truly why the Cowboys are the laughing stock of the NFL.

    bump

    for fans that don't know, the coach and qb can talk through helmet communications, not the coach and running back.

    the coach would of had to waste a timeout to talk to the rb about staying in bounds.

    two mistakes were made on our drive.

    1) we snapped the ball before the two minute warning, when we didn't need to. someone made a mistake, likely the head coach, but even here the instructions may of been to try to draw them off sides. sure, not likely, but we as fans have to accept we are ignorant of what is said.

    2) we should never of went out of bounds. 2nd and 8 with the clock moving would be better then 2nd and 1 with the clock stopped, but we don't know what Garrett told the QB, and what the QB said in the huddle. we can't blame anyone for sure, except the Rb that has been in this league a long time, and went out of bounds.
