Jerry Jones Calls Out Orlando Scandrick, Cowboys Coaches for Dumb Penalties

Give the Cardinals credit for clawing their way back against the Cowboys on Sunday and coming away with a tough overtime victory, but an argument can certainly be made that Dallas gave the game away.  If you are looking for a scapegoat, look no further than head coach Jason Garrett for icing his own kicker and costing the Cowboys the game-winning field goal.  Jerry Jones, on the other hand, pinned much of the blame on special teamer Orlando Scandrick and the Dallas coaching staff for dumb penalties at critical moments.

“You can’t touch people in the back,” Jones said according to MySanAntonio.com. “That’s got to be coached. You cannot touch people in the back on kicking. And I’m not being critical of anybody. I’m just … the call was a good call. He hit him in the back.”

That can’t happen and has to be coached, but don’t worry because Jerry isn’t being critical of anyone.  Whether you agree with Jones for publicly scolding his players and coaching staff or not, he’s right.  One of the block in the back penalties — which Scandrick insisted was a bad call — negated a 35-yard return by Dez Bryant that would have put Dallas at the Cardinals 25-yard line.  Mistakes like that can’t happen.

Jerruh can be annoying and try to involve himself in the X’s and O’s a bit too much at times, but personally I’d rather hear him call his team out after a tough loss than call it one of the best games he’s ever seen his quarterback play.

    If you’re the coach of the Cowboys, part of the deal is having Jerry breathing down your neck, making comments in the press and undermining your authority.  Whether he’s right or wrong isn’t the issue…this type of discussion should be handled behind closed doors.

    You can’t blame this one on Romo..he did hit his recievers & did what he needed to do to get his team in position to win the game with a field goal.  Blame it on the moronic coach who decided to ice his own kicker & the sorry a s s secondary led by Newman & Scandrick.

    I feel badly for Scandrick. The guy turned his back into him so the penalty became inevitable. There wasn’t much he could do.
