04:53 AM ET 10.22 | Zebras became regular visitors to Cowboys practices Thursday. In an attempt to cut into their staggering number of penalties, the Cowboys imported five officials for the practice: retired NFL referee Phil Luckett and four collegiate officials. Coach Wade Phillips said officials will work the two practices per week when the Cowboys are in pads for the remainder of the season. The Cowboys asked the officials to focus on specific infractions that have caused problems. For example, the Cowboys are tied with Oakland for the league lead in defensive pass-interference penalties with six.

Bring in an idiot official to help you out? Nice choice. Luckett's advice--- "I don't know what you should do..."

Coach Jones will have to put an end to it.

the ONLY way this happens is if they just don't show up. in a manner of speaking that has happened in all but one game so far anyway.

This is a real vulnerability. If I'm the coach of the opposing team, I would put it in my game plan to get in the Cowboys' heads during the game in order to make them lose their cool and commit more penalties.

Water, water, everywhere, and all the boards did shrink,
Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink,
God save thee, Ancient Mariner, from the fiends that plague thy bones.
Why look'st thou so?
"Oh, I don't know. It must be Jerry Jones...."
