I almost feel like this was karma rewarding Eagles fans for all that they’ve suffered through this year. -Speaking of the Eagles, what’s...

The Morning After: Garrett's malfunction shows help is needed

Yesterday, the Cowboys lost a game they really could not afford to lose. They have been threatening to do this for the last 3 games, and finally their tempting of fate came due and they lost a game that they were heavily favored to win and one that could prove extremely costly when they attempt to enter the playoffs and avoid the most difficult road possible. They lost a game that...

Cowboys 'iced' own kicker in bizarre finish

Garrett fooled by Bailey’s history of making long kicks

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Jason Garrett’s decision not to call a timeout with about 25 seconds left in regulation in Sunday’s 19-13 overtime loss at Arizona probably had a lot to do with him having too much confidence in rookie kicker Dan Bailey. Bailey had made 26 kicks in a row, a streak that started with a 48-yarder in Week 2 at San Francisco that forced overtime. His longest field...

Jason Garrett Iced His Kicker and Costs Cowboys Win

They still lead the NFC East but failed to gain additional ground on the New York Giants who lost a heart breaker against the Green...

Jason Garrett Iced His Own Kicker: A Quick Laugh at the Cowboys

Since Eagles fans can’t get any enjoyment from their own team this season, how about a quick laugh at the Dallas Cowboys?  Any time Dallas loses, life is good. Especially the way in which they lost to the Arizona Cardinals. Just before the end of regulation in yesterday’s game, the Cowboys lined up for a would-be game-winning field goal.  The game was tied 13-13 and Cowboys...

Second Thought

Jerry Jones Not Second-Guessing Garrett

Jerry Jones isn’t going to criticize or second-guess head coach Jason Garrett for his clock management or reason-defying decision to call a timeout when he did against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday--at least, not publicly, he isn’t. In his bi-weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Jones made that much clear. “That’s just second-guessing,” Jones said, via...
