The clock always seems to tick off a few seconds when a timeout is called, it's just not yesterday. That's something that's always pissed me off.

Yeah I was thinking we MIGHT have had enough time to have thrown a quick out for at least a few more yards. After all, even though the field goal was short, just a few more yards would have made a huge difference!

eh...after the cowboys got accross midfield the redskins stopped blitzing, they were only rushing the front 4 and dropping everyone else into coverage, that is something that they didn't do all day, they should have stuck with the aggressive defense, it was killing vinny-t all day, but they knew the cowboys couldn't settle for 3 so they were trying to stop the big score, sean taylor was just worried about keyshawn on the post...would anyone out there have been worried about the reciever that scored???? (I don't even know his name) taylors young and vinny made a great throw

I dunno, perhaps it just wasn't enough time, we might as well have tried a hail mary... a 57 yard FG with Chandler, forgetaboutit.
I agree. I was screaming for them to run one more play. You know he's not hitting a 57 yarder. Why not try one of those quick outs/slants that they ran 1000 times previously during the game? We had another timeout so the middle of the field was open too. There's a big difference between a 51 yarder and a 57 yarder.

It takes the refs 2 seconds to realize you want a timeout. So, effectively, we would have had to run a play (snap, drop back, throw, catch, go down, and call a timeout) within 2 seconds (to leave 1 second on the clock). Just not enough time.

We could have gone for the FG or the game winning hail mary not both either way it was a long shot. the way the game went though even had we got the tieing FG the Boys would have still gone the length of the feild and won in OT.

As unlikely as hitting a 57 yard FG is, chances of hitting a hail mary for a TD is even less likely. As others have pointed out, 5 seconds just isn't enough time to get a play off and call a timeout or get out of bounds.
