I thought it was Ken Whisenhunt that had iced Dan Bailey before that kick at first. I was floored when I found out it was Garrett, especially after the team had spiked the ball to set up the field goal.
It's not easy to win a game when you only score 13 points, and the Cowboys were on the road but there was absolutely no reason to call a timeout so close to the kick. There's a reason why opposing coaches call timeouts before game-winning kicks. They want to break the concentration of the kicker. It doesn't work as much as you think, but it rarely completely backfires.
His first kick cleared the cross bar with plenty of room to spare, but Garrett and the Cowboys had to watch as his second missed the distance and was just a bit left. This is right up there with Joe Gibbs calling back-to-back timeouts on bonehead plays. Sorry Jason, this time it's on you.
