Opening Week Talk

Cue the 2md guessing for Mccarthy who passes up a chipshot FG to go for it on 4th and 3 and comes up short, and that's where the scoring ended 20-17

Bullmanure call at the end on Gallop. Same ole Cowboys defense getting finessed out of position and out schemed. Losing LVE was a huge blow but it wouldn't have mattered. Why not tie the game on the 10? Good game Rams. Well played.

Gallup's (Giddyup's) play was not pass interference :o

I'm not trying to be antagonistic but I did think that pass interference was within reason. You didn't see a full aggressive push but it was enough to keep Ramsey off the ball and slow his momentum, and when he knew he was going to be out of reach he sold it well.  If they don't call it the Rams are going to cry foul.  Kind of a no win play. I do think that push affected the catch though, although they were both hand fighting prior to that

Offensive PI should be offensive to be called.  It looked worse in real time than it did on replay.  Ramsey earned some of his money selling it.

 

McCarthy also is not a good in game manager.  A FG would've tied it and a 4th and 3 is a long way from an easy  conversion with a ton of time left.

Completely agree, terrible call and it changed the outcome of the game.  Ramsey was hand checking Gallup just the same and there was no clear push off to gain an advantage.  Ramsey just arched back when he knew he was beat to sell it.  Dallas is 1st and 10 at the 15 with a tie basically in the bag and the chance of a win dramatically increased. Sucks but moving on...

I hear you I think you kick that and get even.  I am sure they have stats guys working on that but you need exact field position, yards to go, etc.  It wasnt like they were completely backed up either, I think it was the 12 yard line or something, so not sure you get all those expected points from  leaving bad field position either.

Fwiw, the stats guys are calling it a wash https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.espn.com/blog/dallas-cowboys/post/_/id/4772030/mike-mccarthys-decision-making-under-question-after-cowboys-loss%3fplatform=amp

"According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the win percentage had the Cowboys made the field goal attempt would have been 47.4%. Had they converted, the win percentage was 47.2%. So basically a wash. But also according to ESPN Stats & Info., McCarthy never went for it on fourth down when down by three in the fourth quarter and inside the opponents' 30. He kicked a field goal attempt six times, making five."

And that's why McCarthy has been out of the NFL. He's terrible on the fly.

I think the Browns are one to watch.  I think OBJ has just about had enough of Mayfield's inaccuracy by the sounds of it.  Maybe others.

Didn't watch Thursday or much of anything yesterday.  Watched a little of the Titans/Broncos tonight.  Meh..

 

I'd rather watch my butt cheeks jiggle when I fart - that is until they get all this BS back out of the game.
