    Re: Childress' curious play calling helps Cowboys contain Peterson

    First of many articles that don't take into account what was going on with respect to what was on the field.

    They had a obvious game plan centered on how they were gonna rotate the backs and who would be in during certain situations.


    I for one thought that during the limited plays that our impotent offense had on the field they were pretty creative with getting AD enough reps.

    Could he have sat CT more and put AD in more?
    Probably.
    Would that have resulted in Cook letting a DE strip the ball again, with only a token effort of a block?
    Probably.

    Push comes to shove, when the offense isn't clicking either during the run or the pass I look in one place to find the answer/reason.
    Most times it isn't the playcalling that is the issue but rather a group of 5 over paid fatmen(T, C, G's) and not the playmakers (RB's, QB's, TE's, WR's) who are at the source of the problems.

    Yup.
    More ignoring of actual game situations in favor of a 3rd-grader's interpretation of the stats line.

    I have checked the spread sheet.
    I know of at least 8 posters on here that actually will believe this drivel and comment with something along the lines of "Fire Childress" or "Childress Can't Make Adjustments".

    Amazing what people will believe cause they read it in print.

    The spreadsheet never lies my friend.
    ;D

    Troy "I have the collective dick of Dallas in my mouth" Aikman actually had a good quote yesterday.
    He said at half time "If you look at the stats sheet right now, Dallas should be killing Minnesota.
    But the game isn't played on paper, it is played on the field."

    Were the heck have you been.
    Welcome to the fray.
    ;D

    I agree that it is played on the field and not on paper.


    I also agree that Aikman isn't smart enough to come up with an intelligent thought/quote like that on his own.
    ;D

    The spread sheet I refer to my friend is that which I keep to remind me of the percieved knowledge that posters on this site have.

    I can see I might have to shift you to another column as well.

    Re: Childress' curious play calling helps Cowboys contain Peterson

    The play calling has to be suspect when your two backs only get 22 carries for 110 yards between them.
    When you add to the equation your quarterback only completing 6 passes the entire game then it is just asinine that your backs did not get more carries.

    So, what are the categories on the spreadsheet?
    Asshat, asshole, jerk, moron, idiot?
    It might be easier to just have a word file and put everyone's name on it under idiot.
    It would save you time and effort.

    Is it possible to be in every category?

    Fire Childress.

    Brad Childress walks into a pharmacy and asks assistant for an anal deodorant. The assistant explains that they don't stock them. Childress insists that he bought his last one from this store.

    The assistant passes man on to the pharmacist, who explains that store has never stocked such an item. Chilly explains he bought his last one from this store only weeks ago and has done for several years. The pharmacist asks Childress to bring in his last purchase and he will try to match the product.

    The following day, Chilly returns to the pharmacy and shows the deodorant to the pharmacist. The pharmacist asks why he thinks this is an anal deodorant, when it is obviously of the underarm stick variety. Childress explains that instructions on reverse state, 'Push up bottom to use.'
