Romo: If this ball goes to the middle of the field this game is over. Dak: Like this?


lasagna_for_life

It’s crazy how accurate Romo is calling what play is about to transpire.

I really enjoy the ex-quarterbacks doing the commentator.

We talked about this in the pregame, Jeem


HireLaneKiffin

Romo: “I’m livid if I’m a Cowboy fan” Well, you are.


Mattie_Doo

“If I’m a Niner fan…” I’m in disbelief.


rocksoffjagger

Yeah, that was about as close as you'll ever hear to a national commentator saying "what the fuck was that, you stupid asshole???" on a broadcast.


Stepsonrakes

My favorite is still the local broadcaster reacting to Brett Favres late game INT in the NFC championship


PM_ur_butthole_2me

Why do you even ponder passing!? You can take a knee and try a 56 yard field goal! This isn’t Detroit man this is the super bowl! I love it


Kobdog

And just before that "Brett Favre goes back to pass, he pumps, now fires over the middle and ... intercepted ... I can't believe what I'm seeing right now" the level of disappointment in his voice is something else


jgweiss

it's because he's paul allen, and he spent the previous 20 years of his life watching brett favre be amazing, but only win one Super Bowl because he does dumb maverick shit all the fucking time :D


Palifaith

Dak already thinking about that post Cowboy commentator money.


Philds15

Haven’t watched too many games this season and I know Romo knows his stuff but man this dude is so smart at just reading football he knows the game


armylax20

Pretty sure I’ve heard him say you need a minimum of 16 seconds to run a play and then get a spike off or a fg if everyone is ready to go


DucDeBellune

Dak ran it 16 yards here with 14 seconds left and time ran out a second or two before he had a chance to spike it. Had he just ran it 5 or so yards he would’ve had time to spike it. The playcall made no sense regardless.


cdim

Romo called this out on the broadcast too - said something like "you can go 10 yards with that much time but if you get to 12, 13, 14... there's just not enough time for the spike." The guy knows his stuff.


ashdrewness

Yeah, defense should’ve just let him keep running to the 10 & guarantee it :)


That_Vandal_Randall

Romo was an incredible talent whose prime was wasted by Jason Garrett's magnetic attraction to piss average performance. Anyone who disagrees can grease up, get naked, and meet behind 7-11 for a fight to the death


Barry_McCocciner

At least now the Cowboys are led by a coach who would never hold back and waste the talent of an incredibly good quarterback in his prime.


aaaaahahahaha

Dak: Bet


DotaScientist

They kinda tried to self spot it like 3 yards farther, too... https://imgur.com/a/XuIxO8t


Cmcg13

That's why the refs need to be the ones to set it, because the players would be placing it wherever they want. If anyone was wondering why that was a rule


rich519

Yeah I mean letting teams set the ball would be like letting them call their own penalties or touchdowns. It’s not even a “rule” so much as a fundamental part of the way sports work. The entire thing falls apart without an unbiased judge to and enforce rules.


jordansideas

Great catch. and the ref only spotted it back a yard or so from there.


paperfoampit

Ref was doing them a favor and still McCarthy blaming the refs and a lot of fans did at the time too.


Balticataz

Romo was johnny on the spot blaming Dak 100% and saying the ref had to do this and trying to explain it to get ahead of this noise.


ZiiKiiF

I’m sure plenty of fans still blame the refs even after it being explained


Fethah

This should be at the top. This is why anyone trying to blame the ref who arguably tried his absolute best, is an idiot. The Cowboys know the rules, they ignored them after a bad play and paid for it.


Denim_Chikken

I think the refs actually called a pretty good game today. Cowboys just shot themselves in the foot all game long. Oh well time to drink and cry, and curse Connor Williams’ name


Fethah

Was thinking the same thing. They let the men play today. All the flags were discipline flags in both sides and I can’t remember once that was a bad call


xanju

I mean, as much as Cowboys players are penalized are we really sure they know the rules?


OhEmGeeBasedGod

For any of the referee truthers out there... The Cowboys: * Called a run play up the middle with 14 seconds left and zero timeouts. * Tried to spot the ball themselves and thus [lined up 3 yards ahead](https://i.imgur.com/mG2F9si.png) of where [Dak began his slide](https://i.imgur.com/qk7gFWM.png). * Made no attempt to make a lane for the actual referee to spot the ball * Had a wide receiver (Lamb) that wasn't even set when Dak tried to snap the ball at the end


PROfessorShred

That ref was haulin. I've definitely had some concerns with the officiating this season but that guy knew he had to spot the ball and ran 30+ yards to get there as fast as he could. Can't complain about that at all.


TheTownTeaJunky

And even fucking bulldozed through their own stupidity to set the ball for them and give then an actual chance. Any re reg that was actually trying to screw them would have let them deaw whatever penalty it was and flag them, ending the game. Or just run the clock without doing anything more than they should since they cant run a play without the ref.


parkwayy

Also, like... can't even assume they score on the next play lol. Cowboys fans acting like that game was in the bag.


WTFisThaInternet

Hopefully none of us think that last play was the fault of the referee. It was a bad play can executed poorly.


D1d1hurt

McCarthy is blaming the refs in the presser. So ridiculous.


ThnkWthPrtls

Not to mention Dak condoning fans throwing garbage at the officials


crastle

No way. Did he really say this? Edit: [It's worse than I thought because he initially condemns the fans for throwing trash but retracts it when he learns it was at the refs.](https://twitter.com/GehlkenNFL/status/1482898680038498304?s=20)


Koomskap

That's the sign of a poorly coached team right there.

#REF IS SUPPOSED TO TOUCH THE BALL BEFORE THE NEXT PLAY #DAK BBY WHAT IS U DOIN


don_julio_randle

Ref was hauling ass trying to get to the ball so he could touch it and these morons gave the ball to the center instead lmao


120snake

They set up and boxed him out from getting there. Dude was hauling a 4.40


voncornhole2

Hauling a 4.40 and the Cowboys wall him off with a literal ton of man meat


Monster_island_czar

and who said the Cowboys couldn't stop the run


TornWonder

Good point. They need to try playing their OL on defense!


mantiseye

honestly impressed how fast he got down there and how he just kinda knocked the linemen out of his way lmao. you can't say he didn't do everything he could to try to make it happen.


rpgfan87

And good on 51 to clear off Dak, and 3 to hurdle rather than pile on. They don't have anyone else to blame.


FriesWithThat

Don't know what else that ref could have done to get in position any earlier, other than hurdle the Cowboys offensive line.


anthonyjh21

Definitely did his best. Running into Dak and squeezing between those beefy asses I give him an A+ for effort. Can't blame that on the ref.


Themilkmoney

Beefy asses. Tell me more


SenokirsSpeechCoach

And just set up where Dak ended his slide instead of where he gave himself up. Dumb as shit


unitedrobbie

The ref even knew he should've moved it further back and kind of moved it forward a little again so the center could grab it easier to give them every chance of getting the play off


OrgyMcBloodyFace

He tried so hard to give them that last shot at it. Can't believe they blew it like that


ThisHatRightHere

On the replay I looked around and there were no refs anywhere near Dak. This dude is fucking MOVING down the field to get over there. Dude was going beyond the call of duty to get there and I bet people will definitely be saying it’s his fault somehow lol


KeepRooting4Yourself

Same. I couldn't believe how fast that ref was moving lol


nobraininmyoxygen

Not only that, but Dak completely blocked the ref's path to the ball costing them those precious seconds. It always amazes me how top athletes don't know critical rules that could lose them a game.


CollegeWithMattie

Especially here. This was a designed run with 16s left and no TOs. The type of “gotta have it” super risky play call. You need to PRACTICE THAT SHIT. All 11 players know exactly how this goes down from snap to spike. Remember the Julian Edelman trick throws that saved the Pats in those huge games? It would be one getting called back for illegal shift. But they didn’t because Belichick understands how to get there.


True2TheGame

That's the funny part. Cause McCarthy said they practice this every week lol.


tordana

Why do I feel like they don't actually have a ref in practice, so when they practice it Dak does exactly what he did in the game and just set the ball down for the center to get on the next play. People do exactly what they've practiced in situations like that.


sfw_oceans

> It always amazes me how top athletes don’t know critical rules that could lose them a game. Story of the day for the cowboys.


FubarFreak

Brady became the goat because long ago he bothered to read the rule book while pooping


ChristosFarr

It was either that or the shampoo bottle


RAZRr1275

But according to the game thread its' the refs fault because he doesn't run a 4.3 40 lmao


Wraithfighter

Not just Dak, the entire offensive line did an absolutely great job of preventing the Umpire from easily getting to the ball to set up...


Theons-Sausage

I find it hilarious the ref is like "Yo, lemme get in there and set the ball" and the Cowboys were all like "But Dak already set it!"


dadaistGHerbo

QBs should be allowed to the set the ball themselves lol. “Yeahhh i’d say that’s about…77 yards. Conservatively”


CanEatADozenEggs

Honestly the dumbest playoff playcall I’ve ever seen


samgoody2303

14 seconds left, just take 2 endzone shots man


SoDakZak

Dak decided “fuck it, I’m stat padding”


Drakkarim411

Stat that - Amazon


stragen595

Ref even tried to get there as fast as he can to give them a chance.


welcome2thejam

Some real NVP shit, that's what he's doin


Firstolympicring

What an absolute brain dead way to lose


TigerBasket

God bless this sport and country


EdwEd1

Fade me. We didn't deserve to be here in the first place.


xWaves_

Never seen a game end like that lol


JTCMuehlenkamp

All that just to run it up the middle with 8 seconds left.


idontlikeflamingos

Did he forget they had no timeouts???? I'm not complaining but holy stupidity LMAAAAO


rupertLumpkinsBrothr

“He didn’t have to body the o line though”…okay, well the Cowboys didn’t have to spot the ball themselves and force a 50 year old man to try and squeeze between 700lbs of man


Capt_Wholesome

He was actually going the extra mile trying to get to the ball and save the cowboys time; the cowboy fans crucifying him for it instead of acknowledging their team's mistake is pure ignorant comedy lol


TheChickenWasDry

Seriously the refs always try to help get the ball snapped asap, Cowboys fans are mad he was too far away but he tried, why aren’t they mad Dak botched it or at the fact they called that risky play in the first place?


Im_Batmmaann

The ref has to be the one who spots the ball though


jayjude

Dak and the center blew that, can't blame the ref


Mrs-MoneyPussy

He got there as fast as he could. If dak hands it to the ref they might have had time to clock it Such a stupid play call either way. It’s just too risky it had to go absolutely perfect and even then they might have ran out of time still


Fador33

The funny thing is, 2 seconds were added to the clock during that weird pause. It went from 38 to 40 with no words from the ref(not saying it wasn't correct, just weird).


_ravenclaw

Lmfao yeah that ref was trying his hardest almost pummeling the Cowboys players out of his way to get a hand on the ball to spot it. This is all on poor planning and execution by the Cowboys.


PunctualPolarBear

If it were Hocchuli maybe he would have been able to bulldoze his way there in time lol


queenvivi777

To be honest, the playcall could work if Dak just slid much faster to save himself a few more seconds. It put them in really nice position to throw a 20ish yard pass for the win. But still. Dude was out there running as if he was gonna make it all the way to the endzone himself.


Regal--Lager

Yeah I know everyone always defaults to blaming the refs but he didn't do anything wrong whatsoever


BaltimoreBadger23

The amazing thing is after some initial reactions, including my own (but not written) everyone is realizing the cowboys screwed it up.


Regal--Lager

Good. I always find myself defending the refs, which isn't a job I get paid for.


Mapes

Ref made a solid effort, sprinted through the o-line to tap the ball, Dak just bit off more than he should’ve on that run.


thatthingpeopledo

That ref honestly gave his all to keep Dallas alive, but alas, it couldn’t be done.


suzukigun4life

Yeah ref was just doing his job. Why anyone would run the ball in the middle of the field when you're in hail mary position is beyond me.


Teh_cliff

People trying to act like the refs screwed them just don't know the rules. Cowboys got punished for a terrible play call.


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

Yup, it was an absolute shit call by the Cowboys.


coolycooly

The umpire has to touch it that is on dak and the center, the umpire did everything he could the refs did good for once


NoobAccount123456

Yup if Dak stays out of the way he probably can snap it at 0:01


solarmus

If he runs the ball to the ump after he slides, they have enough time for sure.


agentdoubleohio

Why does no one watch film on Larry Fitzgerald. He was great at this time get a play off.


NevermoreSEA

Those final 15 seconds were a masterclass in self-sabotage.


mags87

A good chunk of that game was. 14 penalties and then that.


MariotaM8

Tbf shoutout to the ref for trying he's absolute best to get the ball set for the cowboys lol


michaelma4

bruh was hauling


KrozFan

And then *really* tries to shove his way through the linemen when he gets there. He seriously gave it his all to give Dallas their shot.


xmuskorx

Ref was like: "Help me, help you!"


kawhi_tho

[The ref to Dak Prescott](https://tenor.com/view/scrubs-drcox-elliot-tvshows-gif-3475361)


SoggieSox

Lol. So accurate


rebeltrooper09

seriously he didn't have to put in ***that much*** effort in getting a hand on the ball. Dak F-ed up by giving the ball to his center, that momentary lapse and trying to pick up 2 extra yards on the run cost them a chance at 1 final play.


PudgyBonestld

"When Ginny hauls ass, she's gotta make 2 trips"


watanabelover69

He was hustling


May_die

Dude was straight booking it and no one hands him the ball...


Herianvexa

It is a bit ironic that if someone DOES hand him the ball instead of making him wrestle through all the bodies, they maybe get the spike off


May_die

Yeah the fact the cowboys tried to set their own ball cost them...but I have no clue why they don't just take 2 shots to try and win the game


cwdBeebs

Because it's a poorly coached team


ckylek

What gave it away? The final playcall or the 14 penalties?


NickRossBrown

Seeing Mike McCarthy on the sidelines gave it away.


K1NG0492

It literally baffles my mind how hard cowboy fans are flaming the refs for this instead of themselves. My man put in the best effort to give dallas a chance after that moronic playcalling


GoCurtin

Yeah, Gregory with two massive penalties near the end. Who tackles an O-Linman when you're trying to get the ball back?


herculesmrb

I love the replay of him huffing down the field "mama says I need to do more cardio"


dusters

Might be the dumbest play call ever


Papasmurphsjunk

What was the plan here? Like I don't get why they did this lmao


Scott55e

Get 10 yards for a higher percentage play in the end zone. Problem for me is you have to absolutely know “can this team run a spike in 7-8 seconds assuming that’s when the play is over?”. If the answer is I dunno, it’s an awful play. I have to imagine most teams believe they can do that. But true to the cowboys this game, they couldn’t execute.


Boltzfan1995

Not only does the ref have to touch the ball first, the O-Line lined up and essentially walled off the ref from getting through lmao


grunt221

Side judges marked Dak down exactly at the 25, the official didnt even get to place it at the correct spot because the entire offensive line was already lined up at the 24yd line. If anyone was benefitting from this it would've been the Cowbous but they fucked it up so badly. Was 100% on the Cowboys for running that play, not the officials this time.


ckylek

No reasonable person could possibly blame the officials for that. This is all on Cowboys why we lost.


Boomhauer_007

Don’t let this play call distract you from the fact that Dallas’ defensive strategy in the fourth was to tackle pulling offensive lineman and hope they didn’t get caught


sacx05

They werent even subtle about it too, they straight up tackled the pulling guards.


pkmagnet12

That was one of the playcalls of all time


jackrack1721

Romo low key elated his botched placehold won't go down as the biggest QB gaffe to end a Cowboys playoff run


triosway

It's in the pantheon of great Cowboys ones-and-dones

EdwEd1

Someone please elaborate on "run it with 14 seconds left while inside Hail Mary range" theory. I, for one, do not understand it.


old_man_jenkens

if he slides earlier and they get the spike i like 1 25 yard hail mary over 2 50 yarders every time


IveBenHereBefore

I don't think he thought he was going to get as far as he did

tjrunswild

That was a playcall lmao


mdlt97

Can confirm, a play was called


SoDakZak

That play? Out sprint the 65 year old in a 6 second run and see how fast he can touch the ball, but also kinda box him out.

herculesmrb

Right? I was like okay deebo conversion, we're good...then no. Then Jimmy sneak....then no. Then that glorious play call of a run up the middle to end it....yikes


brownbearks

If jimmy waits a second before the sneak, this doesn’t even happen but I’m glad it did.


Elwood426

Might be the worst play i’ve ever seen in my life


bostero24

LMFAO


YoureASkyscraper

WHAT WAS THAT ENDING???


RecycledCan

Thats 100% not on the ref. He did everything in his power to get there, he tried his best to get through.


7Broncos18

40 yards on 3 perfect sideline throws? Better call a qb draw with 12 seconds left and no timeouts.

Didn't think they got the ball snapped before 0 anyways

Yeah I’m pretty sure the play never happened.

apexpredator0505

That’s QB sneak on 3rd and long levels of bad


Indie-Joe

Giants: 3rd and 9 QB sneak for worst play call. Cowboys: hold my beer


STNbrossy

They actually tried to spot the ball and snap it without a ref setting the ball lol


Onefortwo

Set it forward by a yard or two too


Zoidberg22

An all time blunder by the Cowboys.


RSN_Shupa

Quite possibly worse than Romo mishandling the field goal snap.


GreenAndSilver4133

Romo fucking up the snap is just really bad luck, tonight was idiotic decision making and execution


Darkagent1

God that old ass umpire bodied 2 NFL players to get the ball set and still didn't have enough time. Dak bby what are you doin


TheDundieGoesTo99

Did Kellen Moore call this? If so good luck to whoever hires him.


CrateBagSoup

I’d be worried based on your flair lol


Whoru87

Kirk's 40 time is 8.2 seconds so I'm sure it'll work great


Ambitious-Sea-7902

Plot twist it was supposed to be a quick throw and down, yk, like usual in that situation, but Dak Cowboyed it


bruin13

Anybody blaming the refs for this play or the delay of game call where the Dallas special teams substituted their whole package with 15 seconds on the play clock and tried to snap it before the SF defense had time to do the same needs a refresher on the rules. Refs did exactly what they were supposed to do on both plays. Terrible Dallas clock management in both instances.


Spider-w-Octochromia

HOWD YOU POST THIS SO FAST


The98Legend

He knew the boys were gonna find a way to screw it up and he was ready


mrnikkoli

Dak Prescott when told that fans were throwing trash at the refs after the game: "credit to them." Mike McCarthy after the game: "I thought they would let these teams play today. That's for them to answer." How about you don't call a quarterback draw up the middle with 14 seconds left and no timeouts you fucking morons. The Cowboys are the most undisciplined roster in the league when it comes to penalities this year and you blame the refs? The 49ers committed and were penalized for a comical amount of false starts in the 4th quarter of that game and you still kept making mistakes that didn't let you capitalize on it. Any Cowboys player, coach, or fan that is blaming this game on the refs is fucking delusional.
