But the bottom line is, he lost this game . . . skip to the jump (and screw you Big Ham, this is not a Fan shot!):
I would state, unequivocally, that I am probably the oldest fan on BTB, having missed less than 10 games (either in person or on TV) since their inaugural season of 1960) . . . one of the first beers I ever drank was given to me by Don Meredith (yes, fans of North Dallas Forty, those hunting trips were true!). I have never been in favor of the "icing the kicker" time-out, especially if it's your own kicker! Yes, Dan Bailey missed from 53 yards out (never should have had to attempt that kick if Garrett had run the ball on 3rd and 1), but the kid is money . . . as he proved, until his coach lost confidence in him (or the team to get the snap off within the time allotment).
I will continue to be the Red-Head's fan . . . but as a fan, I have the right to question his calls! If Tom Landry can be called in to question, so can Jason Garrett!
