    Default Dallas pulled a "Redskins" --- or "The finest form of flatter....

    Well, I tried to find the original article but couldn't. HOwever, someone on the message boards in Boyz land mentioned it by saying:

    So with that being said... We should be knocking on Jason garrett's office door with this question.

    "Why in the hell did you pass the ball on 3rd and 3?"

    Zeke was in the game. It's 3rd and three and we have a time out left. We run the football there; and we either get the first or it's 4th down but a bit closer FG range.


    The original article was talking about how the Cowboys could have taken the game easily if they had stuck with the run game, despite being down 20-3 at one point... and chose to pass 3 times.

    Wish I could find that article again... it was pretty well written.

    Geez... sound familiar?

    <grin>

    I don't know if this is the same article you are looking for but it's pretty in-depth about all of those short yardage situations and asking why they passed on 6 out of 7 of those.

    That's not the same article, but similar... the one I read was in one of the Dallas newspapers. But this one gives the gist of the whole thing.

    Every team does this just like messing up the clock at the end of half even the best teams do it. Nothing unique to the redskins.

    I know..if you notice when I originally posted it... many times during the game chat we'd be frustrated with the playcalling in the RZ... Thus my post re the similarity of what we had suffered all year...
