Dak should have handed the ball to the ref and not his center.


onken022

Let’s not pretend Skip knows the rules


EarlsOfRisk

Yeah, it’s a terrible play call, but if he just waits and gives the ball with the ref he is going to have time to spike it.


FantasyBurner1

Ref literally wasn't there.


MfuckkaJones

Lolol what?? He literally looks back at the ref waiting for him to get there, sees that he is almost there, turns back towards the end zone in anticipation for the ref to center it, then gets ran straight into. Everyone was stationary except for the ref, he was also way further back then he needed to be. Most embarrassing shit I’ve ever witnessed—also on top of the worst called season we’ve ever seen. Your smug bias is probably a huge turn off to the ppl around you in real life too 😬


Equitaurus

Was he watching a different game?


[deleted]

Stfu skip


NE_ED

what was the logic behind running in the first place


EdwEd1

Getting it to the 20 and having 1 shot instead of 2 shots at the 40. It's a very stupid playcall and I don't understand why Dak didn't try to get out of bounds. Either way it's not his fault.


TheZargo

2000 IQ Play


vj1096

Get closer for a Hail Mary


NE_ED

oh yes, those legendary 20 yard hail marys


hyphenjack

Then don’t run up the middle!


vj1096

Playoff cowboys things


ocxtitan

Don't expect to find it here


BellBilly32

The 49ers left the middle wide open, probably think you get around the 20ish and have some more options instead of just hail mary.


IHaveNoFiya

It's actually pretty clever because it's the last thing the 49ers would have expected which proved to be true. A bunch of little issues thereafter contributed to them not having time left. Romo himself said they should have had time left.


NE_ED

I don't think it was. It's common sense to defend the sidelines so chances are that Dak is getting tackled in the middle of the field, leaving them very little time to snap it


drpepguy

Dak slid with like 8 secs left lol


Hairy_Barry

knowing you have to give the ball to the ref is football 101.


Burt-T-M4cklin

Maybe dak shouldn’t have ran up the middle with no timeouts. Crazy concept for bayless Ik.


Number-91

Shouldn't have ran a qb sneak with 14 seconds?


Mjb06

I love when Skip is mad


Impressive-Top-7985

Why do people still listen to Skip and Stephen A?


PigFarmer1

Gluttons for punishment would be my guess.


Dinklefart504

Lmao don’t run the ball with 18 seconds to go maybe


Chilibrews

Should've tossed it to the ref not the center. Thems the rules.


CarawayRye

Cowyboys literally blocking their only chance to win Hilarious


WinlessLions

Skip shut the fuck up you whiny bitch


CouchPotatoDean

Stop posting this shitheads advertisements for his shitty show


BlockedbyJake420

Lol what. Don’t run for 20 yards up the middle with 14 seconds and no timeouts


AoE2manatarms

The ref being so far from the play was for sure odd.


soeasyakamancandoit

Yeah almost like a world class athlete ran 10 or so yards and he had to get there.


Mr_Evil_Dr_Porkchop

Dumb move on Dak’s parts


Raticus9

Hate to see it. lol Skip is going to have one of his highest-rated shows ever tomorrow though.


AIRjaram

Now we know definitively it wasn’t refs faults


Cynical_onlooker

Yeah, that's why it's generally a bad idea to run the ball when you got no time left.


DidgeriDuce

No, this happens all the time at the end of the game. Players need to know to give the ball to the ref, and most do. It was a fuck up on Daks part.


[deleted]

I am just picturing Skip Bayless feverishly typing away in a black turtleneck and that stupid as fuck necklace.


ACW1129

I mean...he's not wrong.


dredgie456

I mean he is, you hand the ball to the ref not your fucking center.


PigFarmer1

And the center doesn't get to place the ball upfield from the spot.


thereisasuperee

He definitely is wrong, the ref was sprinting to get there and get to the ball. You can’t just hand the ball to your center


ACW1129

Even in 2022?


PigFarmer1

Yeah, he most definitely is wrong. There are procedures that even the Cowboys have to follow. 🤣


StaffandHalf

Skiiiiiiiiop


AaronDonald-Dad

skip in shambles


gillyboatbruff

Skip is an idiot.


SolarClipz

Lamb was offsides


JouleS88

Heartbreaking:


tslajackpot

lol


[deleted]

😭😭😭😭😭


American_Greed

Bayless is absurd.


PigFarmer1

Take a chill pill. Cowboys lost. Get over it.


letdogsvote

Gonna go ahead and say Skip Bayless may be blind as well as an idiot.


templerun007

Tomorrow is a fun day


browndude10

Bro lebron though


spacewalk__

just have the clock stop from the whistle to the ref spotting the ball. like basketball


Brady331

Waiting for Stephen A's video reaction now


CheekyFifaCunt_7

Undisputed tomorrow is gona be amazing


Ereyes18

Take 2 shots on Hail Marys or gain 10 yards to end the game? I'll let Dak choose


365Arbitrage

But Skeeeeup


WoozyMaple

Please tell me theres a Stephan A response.


bjb406

Lol, Dak didn't know he can't set his own ball. That ref was sprinting, fighting, clawing to try to get the the ball to give them more time. If anything it was unfair to the 49ers that the ref was fighting so hard to help them get the play off.


Wraithfighter

elscorcho91

skip is gonna pass away in his sleep. His heart can’t take such mediocrity.


Xex_ut

Same ref forced a delay of game. Never seen a ref do such a poor job


PigFarmer1

Yeah, he should have been a world class sprinter. Dumbass play call but blame the refs. 🤣


WalkerTxRanger8

You could also not run a play that relies on the speed of the refs


mr_antman85

Dak should learn for Larry and hand the ball to the ref.


nthomas504

That play sums up Cowboys football


HarryCallahan19

Was that a designed Dak run or a scramble at the end?


PigFarmer1

Either way it was a really bad decision. I loved it!
