Responding to Ensign's message. The mechanical designers are just as bad as the Architects. I work in the Structural Engineering side of things and it is the M&E Engineers that cause all the problems. For example they would put on there drawings at design stage a small duct, and then when it comes to the construction stage they cry that the duct is now too small after they see the building first hand. And it is then us real engineers that have to and go and change our drawings to cater for them. Just morons

Kudos on the forum layout, making it easier to find each teams thread. Saves the likes of those lions fans having to trol trough all those pages to find their thread. Good Job.

If a punt hits the screen, the clock is reset and the down replayed, so no advantage to either team.

A punt will only hit it if it`s kicked straight up and not toward the sideline. If a punt is hit straight up and should miss, it`s going to be a very short punt so I doubt anyone will intentionally aim at it, as it would potentially be an advantage to the receiving team.

Of the 14 punts against the titans, only the one hit it.

A bit of a fuss about nothing really.

Surely they are only making a big deal out of it because its been a quite camp for the cowboys, no drama, so they must have thought video board there must be a really big story there. NOT. Its all sorted out, Cowboys have done nothing wrong, if the NFL ever want to change the rule, JJ should be first in line asking for the $$$$ from the NFL to pay it.

Well its the same story as the raiders game
First team was dominant aside from one turnover and then the backups come ine and lose us the game
First team only allowed 3 points and scored 10, backups only scored 3 points and allowed 17

Proof, if it was needed that we can`t afford for Romo to go down.

If Kitna can`t convert 3rd downs and engineer scoring drives against backups, how would he do it against startind Ds??

I`m hoping also that garretts play calling will improve in the regular season...
