If it works in middle school, maybe it'll work for the Dallas Cowboys

    The Dallas Cowboys will be banned next season. Awesome

    It's like the kids on the other team are going, "Hey, where's that dude going with the ball? Is he going home?"

    Makes me wonder what's happened to coaching. When I started playing back in 7th grade, our coach drilled in our heads on the defensive line as soon as the offense is set and the center moves the ball you knock somebody down.
    Didn't matter how he moves it. On this play, the QB might have still scored, but there would be at least four offensive linemen who never saw it.

    Gotta agree with Joe. That's poor coaching.
    As the play started, I was wondering which defensive player was going to plaster the QB. How could all of them just stand there?
  6. I know I come off as the curmudgeon here, but what in the hell is a middle school coach doing designing trick plays? Looking for his big break as the JV assistant coach? "Hey coach, it worked. Nice job. You can trick a 12 year old. Congrats buddy. I see big things for you."

    Haha @ PP -- Maybe he just really wanted to beat that particular team?

    If you are being a curmudgeon, then I am one, too. Completely agree with you on this one.

    What a lame-ass thing to do. If I were that principal, I'd relieve that coach of his gig the minute the kids were out of earshot. Clearly he's not interested in coaching football and teaching sportsmanship. Rather, he's trying to make the highlight films.

    Did anybody catch at 0:19 where the kid finishes the epic win with an epic fail?

    Overreact much?

    I don't think so, but I'm open to argument. What in the world was the coach thinking as he conceived of that play? I doubt anything legitimately football-related. It seems obvious to me that coach was thinking, hey, let's see if we can dupe a bunch a middle-school kids and maybe make ESPN in the process!
