Brady questions Cowboys' decision

The Cowboys' decision to go after perennial Pro Bowler Champ Bailey in the end zone on the last two plays is being questioned by more than just the local media. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whose team plays the Broncos this week, was watching the game and commented about it Monday.

"Late i the game, I was watching, and they threw those two slants at the end, and I'm just thinking, 'Man, if there's one guy you don't want to pick on, it's Champ," Brady said Monday during an appearance on Boston's WEEI radio. "I can't imagine you go into a game thinking, 'Oh, let's really go after this guy, see if he can make some plays."

Bailey has 44 career interceptions, including one on Sunday; Sam Hurd, the intended receiver on those two slants, has 28 career catches.

"It wasn't like we specifically said we wanted to attack him," Hurd said. "It was just we took what they were giving us. Some coaches are scared and intimidated by a guy, but you can't be that way. It's football. We got what we wanted and tried to take advantage of it."

IF JERRY HAD HIRED SINGLETARY WE WOULD HAVE DONE WON 1 OR 2 SUPERBOWLS.THE TALENT ON THIS TEAM HAS BEEN WASTED FOR 2 1/4 SEASONS NOW.OUR TEAM IS THE WORST PREPAIRED TEAM IN THE NFL.ALL ROMO NEEDS IS SOME FIRM COACHING.WE COULD HAVE HAD A PRO DEFENSIVE CO-ORDINATOR ( CAPERS) BUT NOOOO!JERRY WAS AFRAID OF HURTING STEWARTS FEELINGS. WE WILL NEVER HAVE A SUPERBOWL TEAM UNTIL JERRY HIRES A FIRM COACH AND LETS HIM COACH!

Yeah! Let's look at the 49ers coach...he should have been the Boyz' coach. Singletary is just what this team needed. And I can bet you 10-dimes-to-a-donut that JJ would not have come between "Terminator Mike" and his players. I can guarantee you that!

But, alas, JJ needed an easy-going good 'ole boy (a really nice guy too!) that he could kick around and to take the fall if the team imploded (is it already beginning to implode?). Unfortunately, in the NFL nice guys finish last.

You miss a tackle, you got to go back to the sidelines and stand forehead-to-forehead with one of the toughest, smartest warriors to ever play the game--Mike Singletary! If you get knocked out, tough love baby!

You tire your throwing arm out hitting the golf ball 10,000 times Saturday night before the game, "Riiiippppp" off comes the arm! With Terminator telling you to learn to throw with the other arm or go home before he lays you out like a semi running over a drunk armadillo.

You think you don't need to block or you can take a play off? Here wear this chair on your skull, and get out of here till you want to work hard, otherwise Mike and the team don't need you.

Hurd is contradicting himself....

"It was just we took what they were giving us" followed by

"We got what we wanted and tried to take advantage of it."

Sounds to me like the Defense was in control.

Sometimes, if you are too smart, you lose. Look at the 49ers coach. His scheme is very simple, but he really got his players to play with high intensity. If not because of Favre last second desporate TD pass, they would be undefeated.

Garrett (an Ivy league graduate) may be a little too smart, for his own sake. Maybe he thought Denver would not expect Bailey to be targeted twice. But the last pass was almost caught. You know Denver also targeted Dallas bestt corner back for their winning TD. If Hurd caught the TD, it would be a brilliant strategy!

Romo's clutch guy is Jason Witten. Why didn't the Cowboys throw to Jason Witten instead of Sam Hurd?
