Yes, I did. He's still getting over his injuries I suppose. Unfortunately, it is the NFL and as much as we all like Cooley it's a business. Next year might be very questionable for CC.

I don't know what his future holds, but I don't think he should be running the ball on 3rd and short. I'm still scratching my head at the two attempts he had in Monday night's game.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

According to Casserly, next year Cooley will be a big cap hit. I hope he restructures and stays with the team. He still has a lot to offer and he's the kind of team player we want. Nothing wrong with having two quality TE's. If Davis were to go down...then what? When they're both on the field, I think if they're used properly and Cooley's healthy, it can cause problems for the defense.

Yeah, I dont see CC leaving the team. I see him restructuring to stay with the team. Monday night showed his versitility again...Shanny loves that type of stuff.

Maybe he will stay as just an HBACK?

Also, playing prevent USUALLY results in a dumpoff to the back. He could have called an overload blitz to one side, a zone blitz. An all-out cover-0 blitz was NOT necessary.
Agree 100%. The coaches across the field get paid too and they're going to figure it out....obviously.

Calling the same play 3 times in a row on a critical drive is pretty bush-league IMO.

We lost to a very injured and weakened Dallas team. Their center has premature snap. Four times! Embarrassing. How did we lose that game?
Simple... Grossman

Gibbs called the same running playing in time after time with Riggins and company, basically saying to the other team you have not showed me you can stop it so I will keep shoving it down your throat.

Same on Monday night the Skins had run 0 coverage 2 times with great success, so in their minds they were saying you Dallas have shown you can't stop it so we will do it again. Romo beat them on it on the third go around it happens but it was still the best bet choice at the time.

The D was definitely not the bad guy Monday night.

Totally different scenario with the "Riggo Drill" and totally different results. Goes back to previous statements I've made about "situational playcalling".

And no, it was not the D's fault we lost, or even that call from Haslett. But I maintain it was a terrible defensive playcall. On 3rd and 21 and protecting a 1 point lead a high risk/high reward playcall....that you have called on two previous plays...isn't necessary and isn't the correct call. Why are you going to leave your 5'10" corner on an island against a 6'2", 220lb WR who is just as athletic or more athletic...when you don't need to? Why not have some help (zone or at a minimum C1)? What if Romo hits Bryant on a slant and Hall misses the tackle, same result.

Folks can defend the playcall until they're blue in the face, but it was the wrong call.

It's the wrong call because it didn't work. If it works, we think it was the best call. I think it's wrong to judge every play call by whether it works or doesn't work because their coaches on the other side who are getting paid to try and out smart you like you are them and then you have players who are executing the play calls.

Cowboys blocked perfectly on that. Tony did a good job rolling out. Hall did not execute by staying on top of the route. Dez caught the pass. Think there is a lot more factors.

If they only rushed four and Tony picked up the 1st, then everyone would be saying "why not send more people when it's 3rd and 21? Then they have to do a quick pass?"

Let's not forget their players on the field too.

If we were caught doing this in this decade, I couldn't find any evidence of it.
well that doesnt mean anything.I did a quick search and found this

According to Section 3 of the NFL rulebook, such tactics are illegal and can result in a 15-yard penalty. In 2003, Redskins linebacker Antonio Pierce was flagged for the violation when the Cowboys were attempting a field goal in a 21-14 victory.

Is that the game I remember and time just flew by,IDK,could be,I thought it had been more recent

I can tell you the Cowboys C isn't getting any sympathy from former players here.
