    What baffles me is that our defense has the third fewest plays per game this year in the league.....and only 0.1 ( one tenth) plays more than a two way tie for fewest plays shared by the Cardinals and Chargers. They are one of the freshest teams heading into the 4th quarter of games.

    Equally interesting is that two of the three defenses with the most plays per game are the Eagles and Giants, both averaging about 10 more defensive plays per game than the Cowboys this season.

    True and I agree with this, but consider that some of JG's players are not exactly the brightest lights in the room now are they ??
    So if the situation occurs reminding them could be essential.
    And It couldnt hurt anything to remind them.

    well i dont think the problem is they are tired, it is more that they change to a prevent type defense , and that allows teams to just
    move right on down the field.
    They need to just keep playing normal , and maybe keep both safetys back, play man not zone.
    But it has to be scheme not fatigue.

    We had a back up QB with a chance to win his first game and a RB who put the ball on the carpet a few times and took a hit to the noggin that took him out a while. Would it be to much to ask for the HC to remind some one to stay in bounds no matter what? It's his job to handle game situations. I thought any way.

    Dmac going out of bounds allowed them to keep a timeout that they would have used had he not stopped the clock

    LOL, I hear you. If the "Prevent" defense isn't preventing, it's not a Prevent defense and should be called something else...

    "Head in the Sand": defense?
    Surrender Defense?
    Bendover Defense?
    French defense?
    "No Mas" Defense?
    White Flag Defense?

    Wrong answer homie. Jason said they didn't talk about it at all. Get your info str8, this isn't The Ranch, folks here actually know some stuff..I'll give you your point, DMC should've known also, Red probably assumed he was dealing with someone who wasn't from arKansas.

    All I said before the game was that we couldn't let DJackson pull a Santana Moss on us. He always got behind our D and so did DJackson the one time we couldn't allow it.

    This thread is really a sad thing to log in and read. No matter what side of the Garrett fence anyone is on, this is a topic that should, for the most part, be universally agreed upon. The reason you don't give the ball back to a team in that scenario is to avoid EXACTLY what happened. They go down the field with 2 time outs and score a TD to tie it. That should be proof enough why you run the clock down in that scenario, especially when you have a back-up QB and the playoffs on the line.

    We just didn't think the Skins could do what they did. But would we all feel the same if we gave the ball back to the Brady or a healthy Brees with a chance to tie the game under the same set of circumstances? If the stakes were higher (ie: a playoff game) would we feel the same way?

    The MNF crew, Steve Young specifically, was laughing and saying, "when a team gives you a win, you take the win." Those were almost his exact words. We gave the Skins life, just like the Giants gave us life earlier in the year. This time it worked out for us.

    If a "Mistake" still wins the game, who cares? Move on to the next game.

    100% dead wrong.

    The most predictable thing is that no matter how obvious or egregious Garrett's failures/mistakes are, there will be those who make excuses and defend him until the end.
    This is football 101 stuff.

    No, I did not forget about the freaking first play. The scenario as presented was for Cassel to take three knees after the fumble. A little comprehension goes a long way…

    The scenario as presented was for Cassel to take three straight knees. Nowhere was getting a first down mentioned.

    Maybe he meant take three straight knees after the run out of bounds. But wait… That presents another problem, since taking three straight knees what exhaust second, third, and even fourth-down, in that situation.

    The logical assumption was that he was suggesting Cassel take three straight knees after the fumble, discounting the first down run out of bounds.

    Coaches run hundreds of plays. None of them – and I repeat, none of them – tell each player there specific job on every play throughout a season. It falls incumbent on the player to know his assignment for any play that is called. The only excuse would be if the play was not practiced.

    The "fall down" play is one Garrett says they practice. As such, it's incumbent upon McFadden to know his assignment. That's not bad coaching if the player doesn't take care of his business.

    So you wanted Garret to call timeout on second down and implement your plan or did you want him to have Linehan call it through Cassell in the first 30 seconds of play clock?

    I have no doubt QB Young laughed at how that game was managed.

    Yes. That's it. I was hoping Garrett would use his time outs to make the game even more interesting. I like being relevant and entertained that way.
