Recommended Posts

Is there a “talented” Longhorn LB out there that Mack and Charlie coached into being an UDFA we could pick up since the Rams have a RB that fits that bill who just whipped our ass tonight

Not unless they changed the rules. They can now add older veterans to a much larger PS, but as far as I know they are not protected.

The OPI was soft and at a really bad time.

And the Cowboys got away with a blatant shot to Goff's face on a big interception earlier.

Bad calls happen.

The league is not, and never was, trying to screw over one of its biggest brands.  That's the weirdest conspiracy theory ever.

Sorry y'all lost.  

I mean if you gave me the option to get a pick off a missed call in the 3rd quarter vs a bullshit phantom PI call that completely wipes out the biggest play of the game for the other team with like 30 seconds left on the clock, i'm going with option two. But yeah all bad calls are the same.

Yea, jesus christ people are stupid. A call in the last 20 seconds of a game is just a wee bit different than one with over 16 minutes left to play.

Seriously this! Is there anything more annoying than the “one call doesn’t determine the outcome of a game” “remember such and such call/non-call” “bad calls happen” yadda yadda blah blah people? Yes one call can determine a game by two evenly matched opponents. There’s nothing wrong with holding refs accountable. You shouldn’t have to win in-spite of bad officiating

they were hand fighting and ramsey arm bars gallups arm and then gallup pushes to free his hand.  obvious no call before the ginboli/NBA head whip from the pussy Ramsey. would have at least tied the game there.

Yeah, that's not what I said.

The point is that calls get missed.  And they go against the Cowboys pretty much exactly as often as they go for the Cowboys over a large enough sample. 

I'm not saying y'all didn't get hosed tonight.  I'm saying there is no conspiracy against the Cowboys.  Look at some of the comments upthread.  Come on, man.

Gonna need to see some actual evidence to back up your stupid claim. Would you like the evidence that shows the cowboys routinely get fucked by obscure and rarely called penalties, especially on significant plays in significant games? Let me start you off with just a little appetizer from last year: 

https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2019/11/24/20981030/cowboys-patriots-tripping-penalty-nfl-refs

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-admits-controversial-penalties-on-cowboys-in-their-loss-to-patriots-should-not-have-been-called/

Or how about a couple  years before. If you believe that the cowboys are the only team to commit holding, I've got some oceanfront property to sell you in Norman.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/20/cowboys-opponents-havent-had-holding-penalty-on-pass-play-since-week-2/

 

I could do this all day. One of my favorites is the ridiculous offense player in the huddle call that hasn't been called in 40+ years. Or gathering the ball before a game winning field goal penalty against the redskins that hadn't been called in 15 years of doing the exact same motion....

 

The point is, if you watch a cowboys game that's close, you are likely to some penalties that would not normally be called in an nfl game.  And this happens year after year, and usually after a big or critical play.

I didn't mind going for it on 4th down there early in the 4th qtr. There were nearly 12 minutes left in the game at the time, the defense had actually started playing well, and we got 2 more possessions after the play. Those are the types of game situations where I'd prefer my team go for it. There's a bit of results based logic going on in this thread. We as a fan base have been begging for a more aggressive mindset from our coach and unfortunately losing the ball on downs is part of the risk when those choices are made. A TD there would've totally changed the offensive mindset of the Rams and potentially would've forced them to think about becoming more aggressive.

We can complain about that call, but it’s one play. One play where a case can be made that the call should’ve been made. It was ticky tack, but the nfl can definitely say they got that call right. Our defense couldn’t stop the run to save their life and we were 3-13 on 3rd downs. So the defense still can’t stop the run and the offense still isn’t clutch over the course of a game. Oh and it happened against a team that’ll probably finish above .500 and make the playoffs. So far, this team is the Spider-Man meme of last years squad. Good thing we have a desperate Atlanta team and a Seattle team that is “letting Russ cook”

 

And for as much as I’d like to blame the defense, THIS team should never lose a game where we hold a team to 20 points. Not with tHe BeSt oFfEnSe in football.

3.8 yards per rush for la on 40 attempts. 
 

Dallas was 5.0 yards per rush, for comparison sake. 
 

offense being unclutch is right, but their most clutch play was eliminated by a flag so questionable that noted cowboys hater Chris collinsworth said it was a bad call.

I didn’t agree with the call, but a case can be made that it was OPI. Like, the call wasn’t so terrible that we should be crying that we got fucked. Ramsey got beat, but he made a veteran savvy move and flopped/sold the call because Gallup definitely extended his arm. 
 

And for some reason that 3.8 ypc seemed worse for some reason. But if there’s one positive takeaway from this game, Zeke looks like 2016-2018 Zeke.

Some of y'all seem like little bitches throwing a tantrum. The refs didn't screw you. Your team did not play well and lost to an inferior opponent. 

Rams played better than they are, but they still probably finish last in the NFC west.

Dallas played worse than their potential, but haven't proven fuck all so the entitlement is bizarre. They will probably still win the garbage NFC east with a 9 win season. Unless the injury to Vanderthing really fucks with your chemistry on D then might drop a few more you shouldn't, i doubt that though. This team rides and dies with it's offense.

If you think that bogus penalty didn’t “screw” the cowboys then you should probably watch the replay with your glasses on. Ramsey initiated the contact after he got beat by grabbing Gallop’s arm, Gallop frees his arm and doesn’t fully extend his arm it at all. They dont call unless you extend the arm, which he clearly didnt do. They also usually dont call it if the defender initiated the hand fighting. So yea, it was a bad call that cost the cowboys the game. 

What some of you are saying is any bad penalty that happens at the end of close game doesn't matter and isn’t the reason a team lost because they should have played better in the beginning of a game. 

Wtf? Let’s just let the refs and players do whatever at the end of a game because it doesn't matter and they should’ve won the game in 3rd quarter. 

Does that mean Swift’s drop didn’t cost the Lions a win because they should've won earlier? 

Plays at the end of a game are far more critical than earlier plays because you don’t have time to makeup or overcome mistakes.

It wasnt an intentional missed call. The ref was behind the play, saw the receiver have his arm straight out, then saw the DB lean back as if pushed hard and made an assumption. It was that simple.

Over the years, it seems that none of the questionable/bad calls against the cowboys at the end of games are intentional. It's really an unfortunate coincidence that it keeps happening.

How many other teams do you watch every single game? 

I mean it's not like the Saints had a super bowl appearance robbed from them on a far worse call than that one. Every week a team or two gets robbed on bad or missed calls. The game has too many very vague judgement calls and is far more difficult to officiate than other sports

I watch at least 10 games a week, so over 60% of them. That gives me a pretty good sample size. There's egregious stuff like the saints game, and also textbook calls like the AJ Green's OPI yesterday. 

I also see them go 11 straight games without any holding calls against cowboy's opponents.

I like Dak, but he was underwhelming. 25/39, 266, 1 TD.  That stat line will not cut it this year.

To be fair you are a Texan fan so not neutral...

I thought the game was called fairly but the OPI was BS. They missed the hand to Goffs helmet, stuff gets missed all the time but that OPI was out in the open and just an obvious fake head bob by Ramsey and they bought it

McCarthy is no genius, so I’ll concede it is possible.  I doubt it, though.   Early on Garrett had a nice offense relative to much of the league, but he never adapted and his game management was abysmal.  Dallas should have won 11 or 12 games last year according to all the computer models, and they didn’t largely because of things like hidden yardage, special teams, and poor situational decisions.

Having said that, Marinelli wasn’t actually that bad given the personnel on defense most years.   I think the defense will be worse this year, and that’s even if LVE were healthy.

Investing all that capital into the OL and RB while the defense is always barely held together with halfway house reclamation projects on the DL, rookie DBs and flyers on injury prone LBs wasn’t such a great idea.   Especially since they only got about 2 years of that OL even being particularly good.

The ref was trailing the play and the receiver extended his arm all the way. Receivers should be drilled repeatedly to never extend the arm. When the ref sees the fully extended arm it's almost always an automatic call. 

“I can tell you it was clear and obvious on the field, of a hand into the opposing player,” referee Tony Corrente said in defending the call. “A full arm extension that created separation. In all situations that would be called. We’re not going to allow that at any time of the game.”

Wow a ref defending a call by another ref, amazing. So now ask him if a DB who is best can grab a WR to catch up to him.
