Jason Garrett is getting a lot of crap for being conservative at the end of the game from everyone including the owner of the Cowboys. I don't necessarily agree with the particular play calls, but I think he actually employed the right strategy on that drive before Brady's game winner. Here are my reasonings: 1.) The Cowboys had the lead and had an opportunity to force the Pats to burn their last two time outs and one first down would have at best given the Pats less than one minute and no timeouts to tie or beat the Cowboys. 2.) The Cowboys defense has been giving Brady and the offense fits all day. It wasn't like the Pats were scoring at will yesterday. The way the defense was playing, the safe bet was to play conservatively on offense avoiding the big turnover and letting the defense win the game. 3.) It is these situations where Romo usually spits the bit. Maybe I just am not head coach material, but the way the game was going. I would have trusted by defense to stop the Pats more than trusting Romo. You can argue that the particular running plays were the wrong ones to run, but I thought it was the smart move to be conservative and take away the clock and time outs. I guarantee you if they aired it out and Romo threw three incomplete passes allowing the Pats to keep all their time outs, Garrett would have been killed for not just running the ball.
