Lost a bit of respect for Parcells this weekend

    Seems the guys is looking to blame everyone but himself for the Cowboys' loss this weekend. He needs to look in the mirror. Sure, the players made their share of mistakes, but his play calling was also to blame. Everyone will critize the 4 and 1 call, and they should. A 6-point game, over 10 minutes to play, your side of the 50-yard line. What in the heck was he thinking. And they did not once try to stretch the defense deep until it was way too late in the game.

    His comment below kills me.
    "I learned a long time ago that if you need some momentum-creating event in the middle of the game, then you probably don't have a very good team. When you got fourth and an inch you should be able to make it."

    Maybe they wouldn't need a momentum-creating event if his play calling had been a little more creative, and his coaching would impart discipline on his defense. One Giant drive was kept alive, *4* times by penalties on 3rd down.
