NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Petersons TD was illegal, refs tried to give the Vikings the game
November 3, 2013, 07:26 PM
Petersons teammate picked him up off the turf and carried him into the endzone. The field would have been littered with flags if Witten had carried Murray into the endzone today.

Nonsense.

Does not matter.

Dallas is ranked 17th in O and 31st in D for yards. That means we are being out gained by 70yds per game.

If not for the turnovers, we would be 3-6, not 5-4.

Dallas is bound for .500 once again...if that, unless this defense gets Ware back and he plays off the charts for them. And, if they can run the ball for once, that will keep the O from a lot of 3 and outs.

pretty optimistic. other than the Raiders, where are they going to get their other wins? Maybe they beat the Giants or Redskins. I still think 7 is their number.

Calm down....any given Sunday Just remember that.

Wow Jeff. Usually you are Mr. Sunshine when it comes to the Cowboys. You're starting to sound like the rest of us. ;-)

MORE QUESTIONABLE COACHING!

In regard to Dez taking off his helmet on the field during play -

We certainly thought that Dez knew that rule and everybody on our team knew it, 'Garrett said Monday on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM. 'But, again, we have to make sure that they do and we'll use the as an opportunity to help our team get better.'

With less than one minute left in the third quarter, Bryant yelled at refs after getting flagged for offensive pass interference. He also took off his helmet and was slapped with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, pushing the Cowboys out of field goal range.

'I was shocked about that,' Bryant said. 'I didn't know that was a penalty, but when I saw us not in field goal range anymore, I was kind of like, 'Damn, I've made a mistake.'


I honestly don't know how he didn't know this rule, but, given the lack of coaching, I'm not all that surprised either. CAN WE PLEASE GET A DAMN COACH HERE?

wish there was some way to get JJ out..... but he'll be around another decade or so. as for wins.... i'm thinking NY, OAK, and skins or eagles. but NY could win at home and dallas could lose the last 2. just hoping JJ get new HC!

and what keeps folks coming back to AT&T stadium? empty seats would send a message to JJ. guess you pay for tickets, you're going to go and watch the cheerleaders!

I'm surprised there hasn't been a drop off in attendance, but if they finish out of the playoffs again (highly likely although that division could have a 7 game winner as division champ) and no coaching changes to the staff (especially HC), I would think people may finally get fed up paying that ridiculous amount of money to see a bunch of losers. but..you never know.

Yeah surprised there was no call there. That is how I thought the rule was written in regards to picking up your guy. At least that was how I learned the rule years ago. I did feel that the hi-lite video is generally shown so you DON'T see #86 with the huge assist.

OK Jerry. Offer Cowher or Gruden a gazillion dollars and maybe the Cowboys can actually have a winning season!

You are allowed to "push" a player forward, the rule is you cannot "pull" a player forward.

I should have clarified, a player carrying the ball.
