Either that or hokey pokey.

Really? Because I was told it was Red Rover?

If I were a member of the Cowboys I would have been more embarrassed if the Vikings had obviously let up and not tried to score. Expressing pity for an inferior team.

I say that you play the game full out until the final whistle.

I am wondering how many of these folks on here were so "tolerant" of the Patriots when they "ran it up in 07" vs the Redskinds and others...hmm let me use my search feature.

For the record, I always say if you play 60 mins you play 60 minutes. Who gives a crap about "playing nice"! If you dont want to be scored on, stop them. I'll bet you money that if they would have sent an all out blitz and crushed Favre they would have got the message. Do what you have to do to get it done on the field, dont be a whining punk.

As long as the Cowboys are coming full throttle on defense (and they were), the Vikings have every right to do as they please.

I think that was the original plan, but you can get clotheslined while playing Red Rover, and nobody wants to get hurt in the last 2 minutes. That's why the Cowboys didn't blitz Favre on 4th down, but instead sat in a circle and talked about their feelings.

'Skins fan here... GUILTY as charged!! However, the Cheatriots vs. Skins score was in the upper 40s or 50s if I'm not mistaken.

I will man up and own up to it though, you got me!!
