Not that it would have made much of a difference, but we can all pretty much agree the officials blew at least two calls on Sunday night, one a pretty obvious pass interference and the other a less-obvious defensive hold, both on the Eagles.
On the first, the Eagles’ Nnamdi Asomougha had a hold of Dez Bryant’s arm as he attempted to make a catch in the end zone; on the next, Joselio Hanson held Jason Witten as he tried to get out of his route.
Both Bryant and Witten pleaded their cases with the officials, and Jason Garrett is fine with that, keeping the lines of communication between officials and players open--he just doesn’t want his guys taking it too far.
“I think that’s a natural reaction,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “We don’t want to take that away from our players, but at the same time, we want them to continue to focus on the task at hand and worry about their job.”
