First of all I'll preface this by saying that I am a Dallas Cowboys fan and this is in reference to the Cowboys - Redskins last night. For those who didn't see it, the Cowboys scored the game-tying touchdown as time expired, but was called off for a holding call (the correct call). The game then ended. Now in the NFL, when the losing team commits a penalty in the last 2 minutes, 10 seconds are 'run-off' of the clock. During any other point during the game the ball would be spotted 10 yards back and they would replay the down as if it had never happened. It's not so much the rule I have a problem with. I understand what the purpose behind the rule is: to prevent teams attempting to come back from stopping the clock allowing them to organize themselves for the next play (i.e. an intentional false start, illegal formation etc.) However, a penalty committed during the play provides no benefit to that team after the play has begun, as was the case last night. To me it doesn't make sense to run-off 10 seconds for something such as holding, clipping or PI when committing that penalty does not help the team but rather hurt them. What do you guys think? Should the Cowboys have been allowed another shot on an un-timed down 10 yards farther back? I do.
