first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation 0 Comments   Share   What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke “I think those other teams have seen what we’ve done andit’s no question they’re aware of that as well,”Whisenhunt said. “On the extra point after they scoredtheir touchdown Patrick [Peterson] almost ran past theball; he was almost on the other side of it when the guykicked the extra point and when you see that when you knowthat’s coming it’s got to affect you.” Before the game Bailey was 27-28 in field goal attemptsthis season and hadn’t missed since Week 2, that changedSunday against the Cardinals. Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt actually thought aboutcalling a timeout before the kick, but remembered whathappened when the Cowboys came to Glendale in 2008. “I was thinking about it,” Whisenhunt said. “If youremember the last overtime game that we played them in 08I iced the kicker and he missed and then he made it. Whenthe time was called and he made the kick there was no wayI was going to ice him after that point because I figuredthe karma has got to turn around and he’s got to miss it.” After the Cowboys called the timeout, Whisenhunt actuallygave the perception he was going to use his timeout. “I was faking like I was going to call it,” Whisenhuntsaid. “You go right to the official and say, ‘I’m notgoing to call a timeout, but I’m going to fake like I’mgoing to’ so he’s kind of looking at you and you’restanding there like you’re going to call a timeout andthen you obviously don’t call it. It’s an art form.” Whisenhunt’s fake timeout plan may have flustered Bailey,but what probably had a more resounding effect on thekicker to miss two field goals in the game was theCardinals ability to block them. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away If you’re an opposing kicker with a chance to win the gamein the final seconds you probably expect a timeout to becalled, to supposedly “ice you.” That’s what took place Sunday, except it wasn’t theopposing team calling the timeout. Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey made a 49 yard field goalto all but assure a Cowboys win, only to find out his teamcalled a timeout right before the kick. Bailey missed thenext attempt, then came overtime which ended on a 52-yardtouchdown catch and run by LaRod Stephens-Howling to seala 19-13 OT win for the Cards. Top Stories last_img
