Romo was on fire in the 4th quarter, so what does Garrett do? He repeatedly calls for draw plays "to trick the Falcons!". FAIL.
Shannyham was the master of trying to triple-outthink the opposition: "They're expecting run, so we'll pass...but...they'll know that I know this, so we'll run...but then they know I like the double-whammy, so I'll pass!"
Result = Ed McCaffrey drops pass looking back into sun thanks to Shannyham ignoring the location of the sun.
Sacrilege!!! McCaffrey never dropped a pass!!!
