Sort Sunday Arrows: Conservative Garrett reduces Cowboys again, Cam is connected and more week 7

Why are you playing the game? You play to try to tie. It’s not Herm Edward’s immortal words. Herm would win. But maybe they may be the words of Jason Garrett, who for the second time in three weeks decided to play for a tie and only received punishment from the football gods, a group of gods often lacks favor.

Garrett’s Penalty this time came in the form of a dark field goal from Brett Maher, who had made his last 16 kicks in a row. Maher did not have to kick when or where he was. The Cowboys had stormed back thanks to Dak Prescott in the crush time, but Garrett then pulled his foot off the gas with Dallas down 20-1

7 and hurried to the red zone for a potential game-winning touchdown.

After entering the Mahers field goalkeeper at the end of Cole Beasley in the middle of the field, the cowboys had about five real-time minutes to plan things out when the officials examined whether Beasley took the ball (he did). The crime came out and traveled to Ezekiel Elliott for a couple of meters and then let the clock hit down for a field goal attempt when they called their last timeout.

It was wonderfully conservative. With 12 seconds left, Cowboys could have spiked the ball immediately to stop the clock at 11 seconds. Then they could have run a fast-paced game, as Tony Romo explained on the CBS broadcast.

“See if you nail it, it’s 11 seconds you throw a shot, take a shot down the field if they get in there. If they drop all the roads deeply, just stop and do the same. is cover 1, man, shoot you to the end zone. “

At that point, Jim Nantz (correct) pointed out that maths knew you could run two games instead of a drawing.

“Yes, if you nail it and you have a timeout,” Romo continued. “You come out and say quarterback gets two plays. We’ll divide it if they drop deep, otherwise we’ll throw it later to our big guy.”

The Irony of Romo, Garrett’s former quarterback, explains Garrett chose a “safe” 47-yards field goals by running the root of the ability to a. Improve the field position or b. Take a shot to the final zone for a direct victory. The latter also gives you the opportunity for a defensive pass-interference penalty, which would increase Cowboy’s winning probability as much as a

Two weeks ago against the Texans, Garrett played to bind for who pulled from Houston’s side of the field, a decision that his boss regretted immediately after it happened .

Playing for the tie is just his style at this time. He is hyper-conservative when it comes to fourth-down decision, ma king even though his team ko converts to the highest interest rate in NFL (75 percent) since taking over 2011, so it’s no surprise that he would also be conservative in these places.

Garrett went fourth in this game and failed. You can almost guarantee that Garrett will scratch a good bit in the rest of the game after seeing it. When he did late in the field goal, he left Dallas with a 47-yard look. After an erroneous start of the crime, it was an attempt on 52 farms that tucked in upright. Something closer and it probably goes in.

The Eagles lost early Sunday afternoon, the giants stink and play in Atlanta on Monday – Dallas was left dead a few weeks ago and should have led the division with a victory over Washington. Instead, the cowboys are 3-4 and in an insecure position. Slide the envelope a bit and maybe the Cowboys are 4-3 or 5-2. They hope better that they do not wonder which two wins would make for their final record when the playoffs come.

Cam is a link, handle it

An important feature from the 2018 NFL season is that every team can be stormed back from a deficit in a fairly fast way, but the Panthers storm back from 17-0 against the eagles to win the match 21- 17 is the kind of comeback you do not expect to see because the pants are not an offensive juggernaut and the eagles are the defending Super Bowl champsna with a dominant defense. And yet it was Cam Newton, who spent the first three quarters and suddenly hit the afterburner and became white hot in the fourth quarter to lead the pants to what could ultimately be a surprising springboard game for Carolina.

Newton was a terrible 8 out of 16 for 59 yards with no points or interceptions with the panthers subsequent 17-0 and the third quarter wound down. The eagles had just scored for the ice game, in theory. From the 33rd point in the third quarter to the end of the match, Newton went 17 out of 23 for 210 yards and two touchdowns, with Curtis Samuel rushing in from 14 yards out for the second point.

Carolina blickkrieged eagles defense; It was a perfect microcosm of Newton’s game. There are many people – both Panther fans and temporary professional football observers – who does not care about Newton. Ok who cares He has an outlandish personality, wearing stupid hats and is often misunderstood.

But here is a reality that nobody can ignore anymore: Newton is clutch as hell. He has thus been back to his college days when he led Auburn and Gene Chizik to a national title in Gus Malzan’s crime. Newton has been producing since the second he arrived at NFL, but people do not want to see him succeed and spend time tearing him down when he gets cold.

However, it is part of Cam Newton Experience. Sometimes he is cold and lacks recipient high, sometimes he is burning hot. Hotsna is considering the cold, because that’s how it works for a player who once went 15-1 and won the MVP, just got up in Super Bowl against a historically good Broncos defense. His response to that loss continued only the polarization of Newton, but people are getting stuck in the window dressing with football players.

Newton is a stud, a player who runs into big spots. Panther’s defense increased his play at the right time on Sunday as well, and the combination gave Panthers another victory. They moved to 4-2, which is well within striking distance from the leading Saints (5-1).

Newton will never lead the league in farms, but he is still the most dangerous and versatile red-zone sister in the NFL. He also fills 65.6 percent of his passports, with long the highest proportion of his career. Carolina has not played so well this year, but they stack wins. If the defense speaks out and the crime finds a track, look up.

You do not want a Hall of Fame caliber QB with an MVP on his resume that starks and stalk you.

Jaguars are imploding

The Jaguars are a relatively new franchise, but they spent a large part of the club’s history are terrible, so it’s impressive, in a bad way, to make a record of negligence in 2018. Especially Jacksonville scored scoring in the first half of the third straight game on Sunday, something Jacksonville had never done before. In an age of high-scoring crimes, it’s suboptimal. And in a year when the hunts would compete for a Super Bowl title, it’s even less ideal for Jacksonville to run Blake Bortles half-time for Cody Kessler.

However, that was why Jacksonville did not “I do not want to shop for someone like Teddy Bridgewater earlier this offseason. They really were one of the best teams that could have used quarterback help . I get the idea of ​​not wanting to create psychological problems for Bortles by taking in another potential starter – as soon as Bortles struggle, people would require Teddy or anything – but if you are a legitimate Super Bowl competitor, you must prepare for All the events. The Saints did it and they have Drew Freaking Brees.

Can Bortles cause the defensive players to be dissatisfied? According to Mark Long of Associated Press, the locker room was “imploding” after the loss, with Calais Campbell having to hold back the other defensive line star Yannick Ngakoue after a massive screaming match that broke out among the players.

Many players refused to talk about what happened, but Jalen Ramsey acknowledged “that is not right “for Jags right now.

“You all go in here, everyone sees it here, you all see how we vibrate with each other, you all see how we vibrate to coaches, you see everyone, Ramsey said.” It’s no secret what’s happening here right now Nobody will say so because we can not. But it’s not secret what’s happening and it’s not right right now. “

It’s worth noting the defense is terrible for Jacksonville right now. Rodney Harrison ripped them as” soft “on NBC before Sunday Night Football, and He may not be wrong. Despite ranking as a top 10 unit of DVOA coming this weekend, Jags has now scored 90 points in the last three weeks, all losses. Just like in the last two matches, they came early and beat

Or, in that case, forced to let Kessler pitch a pitch.

Quick reminder: Jacksonville used a top five pick on Leonard Fournette two years ago instead of choosing a potential quarterback Deshaun Watson was connected to Jags in rumors and Patrick Mahomes was there too. This is not the science behind. The Jaguars were on the market for a future long-term response at the quarterback with Bortles coming from e a nightmare season (he would almost be cut in training camps for the benefit of Chad Henne) and instead took a back with his top choice.

It worked fine last year, but with Fournette who fought with a hamster injury – and was inactive against the Texans – Jackson decided to shop for Carlos Hyde while leaning on T.J. Yeldon. Their short-term shove does not have long-term results with the defense that is inconsistent with being consistent.

Fortunately for Jacksonville, Texans does not have a big lead (one game up) and the Titans lost in London on Sunday morning. Unfortunately for Jacksonville, life is not easier. The Jaguars draw the eagles home next week before their day. A road trip to Indy follows, with Steelers home next and a game in Buffalo after that. Something worse than 2-2 would track the season altogether.

Expect some players to meet only in the next two weeks, as Doug Marron’s team tries to – in his words – galvanize this loss and make another playoff run.
