IRVING, Texas Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett took accountability for Sunday's 31-29 loss to the Baltimore Ravens by saying the following four words on six separate occasions during his Monday press conference."It starts with me."Garrett took blame for calling the final offensive play that sent wide receivers Miles Austin and Kevin Ogletree deep when there was under 30 seconds remaining. After a short pass was caught by Dez Bryant, neither Austin or Ogletree hustled back to the line of scrimmage, leaving Tony Romo with nearly no time to spike the football and stop the clock. The Cowboys were forced to burn their final timeout with six seconds remaining and set up for a Dan Bailey 51-yard field goal that eventually sailed left of the uprights."That's my responsibility," Garrett said. "I made that play call and I got to do a better job of that.""We left too much meat on the bone there," Garrett added. "We need to get more than one yard when we had the one timeout and 26 seconds."Garrett said he talked to the wide receivers about hurrying back to the line of scrimmage."The urgency to get back is critical in that situation," Garrett said. "We have to do a better job in that situation, and it starts with me." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
