Reactions to Greg Schiano’s desperate attempt to force a turnover on the final play of Sunday’s Buccaneers/Giants game continue to pollute old and new media, but Dallas owner Jerry Jones has a unique solution to the dispute. In the future, Jones would like to see taking a knee outlawed, even if it’s clearly the smart move when nursing a narrow lead. From the Dallas Morning-News’ Joe Machota :
“I don’t like it,” Jones said. “Lamar Hunt tried several times to introduce a rule to have it voted on that you couldn’t kneel down, you had to run a play. Unless you were trying to advance the ball, then you got a penalty and the time didn’t run off the clock. It’s not a good play.”
Jones doesn’t sound like he’s siding with the division rival Giants on this one.
“I’ve always thought that that’s a wasted play for our fans,” he said.
