Flo,  Flo, Flo

I think I'm going to start keeping track...here we go.

Yesterday Flozell Adams had one penalty for 15 yards.  But, actually, As I pointed out last year, many penalties cost more than their allotment of yards, and Flo seems to have a knack for this.  His play negated a 16 yard play.  That means that Flo cost the Cowboys 31 yards, at what was still a bit of a critical point in the game.  31 yards.  That's a lot folks.

Combined, Choice and Felix had 32 yards of rushing.  So basically, Flozell Adams negated two backs worth of production, not to mention the killing of momentum after picking up a nice 1st down inside enemy territory.

I had to post on this, because of all the things in this game that were less than stellar, this is the one that had me swearing at my computer screen.  This is a leftover problem that hasn't been fixed in six years.

At what point are we gonna start yelling to get this guy outta here?  That may sound extreme, but think about this.  If we've got third and 10 at the NYG 40 yard line next week and we have a nice 16 yard throw and catch, but Flo has a penalty, then what.  When we are backed up to our own side of the field, rather than well within field goal range against a good team, 31 yards becomes a lot.

 

Sorry, had to get that off my chest.
