It was a bad call, but you need to chill out. Romo made a play.
Its not a bad call actually....
You have a center who has been messing up the snap all day, You have a injured QB who shouldn't be very mobile and scared of getting hit, you have a team that in theory needs time to pass the ball 20+ yards.
If you lay back you risk Tony Romo having time in the pocket until someone gets free and giving him a chance to set up and throw. Then every one on here is screaming about how we had no pressure on him.
He made a great play. They do pay those guys as well....
To be honest -I'm more upset about the Facemask. I think they need to bring back the 5 yard facemask call. Cause 15 yards on a glance of the facemask is crazy.
probably not the best decision, in hindsight. Realistically though the game was lost with the inabilty to run the ball. This is an area that needs to step it up or we will have many games like this.
3rd and 21, here is what you do.. You play good solid D; you give up the underneath routes and protect deep. We would have made the tackle and its 4th and do it again. DAMN
With that said, they did a great job holding the pukes to 6 FGs. We HAVE to score TDs or we do not belong in this league. The 'W' goes to the team that scores the most points.

No. I don't blame Haslett. Sure it's easy to look back on a play that doesn't work out and say it was a bad call. but what if London Fletcher sacks Romo on that play? Everyone would be saying what a call. that was the right thing to do. personally i would of only rushed 6. but there is a reason hes the coordinator. it came down to deangelo hall on dez bryant. a match up we had dominated all game. only 3 catches before that. and Deangelo Hall had to make a play and he didn't I don't blame anyone. I give Romo credit for rolling out and making a nice throw where bryant could get it. What about Roccas botched snap? What about grossmans pick? that one call did not cost us the game. If I said one thing cost us the game it would be redzone offense. we have to score when we get that close, if we score touchdowns this game is not even close. But lets not hang our heads. we have to plan hard for the Rams and bounce back like good teams do.
I didn't like the call but it is what it is... plenty of blame to go around to everyone in my opinion. I still can't believe with all the problems they had at receiver and at center that they were able to beat us. Had that botched FG made it through the uprights who knows... if... if... if.... Skins can't win every game... can't dominate every play.. this is the NFL.... things aren't going to go our way every time. Time to suck it up and move on. Hopefully they learn from this and improve. I think we will know how far this team has truly come (or not) by watching them against the Lambs. They have to go into the bye with a record of 3-1 if they want to contend this year I think.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

1. Regardless of the call, Hall was burnt.
2. That was two-down territory, btw. If they didn't convert, t would have been 4th and 21 (or less) and we'd would have had to stop them again. To me the blitz makes sense in that case.
3. We should have been up by at least 4 at that point.
4. We also had a good shot at scoring after this play. The false start was horrible in that situation. We overcame it but had it not happened the Skins would have had better flow on the drive. Lastly, Rex fumbled because he had to run for his goddamn life. Our O-line needs an upgrade.
We win as a team we lose as a team. This game displayed weaknesses and exposed some of our faults. But we're not horrific.
We're 2-1 with an honest shot at 3-1. Relax.

^i disagree. If its 4th and 21 on their own 30 I doubt they go for it with 2 timeouts and the two minute warning.
