You can't have a holding penalty on a field goal or other things go wrong? Some teams give it to the quarterback to kneel or fall between the hashes and some teams hand it to to a rb with better hands in case someone gets hands on the qb. Either way, yes, Bailey has been virtually automatic under 50 and Garrett did a good job. Good win.
That wasn't my point.
My point was we have ran the ball in that same situation before instead of running down the clock and it cost us a W. Garrett then proceeded to blame Phillip Tanner when in reality, that play shouldn't have been called in the first place as the holding penalty not only negated yards, it stopped the clock, allowing Detroit to keep one of their time outs. Worst time management I've ever seen from a Cowboys HC.
I see where you are coming from. I wouldn't mind any other team doing what you suggested. But I have a problem with the Cowboys doing it because we aren't disciplined like other teams.
I'm still in awe that we ran a perfect screen yesterday. First time I've seen a perfectly executed screen since the Philly vs Dallas game in 2009 (Division title game, not Wild Card weekend).
