    Maybe the helmet material was affected by the cold as well. Never saw that happen before.

    Epic moment, the first thing that came to mind when I saw it was Darth Vader, with the cracked helmet.

    The helmet is specially designed to flex from impact. It’s the padding inside that protects the brain from impact. Kinda like the safe walls for NASCAR. They are very thin unlike the old helmets.
    The design worked as he was unaware of the crack. It protected his head.

    was a penalty called on that hit? If it was helmet to helmet it should have been 15 yards

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    No penalty. Also a mini-scandal… he played the next play with the broken helmet, but then the refs made him change it out. They didn’t force the Chiefs to take a TO or remove him for a play - they stopped the play clock and allowed him to get a new one. It was pretty quick - took maybe 20 seconds, but announcers and the ex-ref on the broadcast were critical of that because a normal equipment issue would have required either a TO or missing the play (or at least not stopping the clock). Didn’t matter in the end - Pat threw an incompletion on the play (3rd down), leading to a FG.

    Andy Reid has a meme worthy moment.

    Initially I thought the Andy Reid frozen mustache was photoshopped. Turns out it wasn't.

    Credit where credit is due, Andy sure is hard core.

    am i the only one who saw that piece of helmet fly off and immediately thought "10-day auction, opening bid a penny"

    Andy Reid is one of the best, as a Cowboy fan I even held him in high regards when he was the Eagles hc. I used to think why can't the Cowboys get a solid coach like him when we were mired with Jason "the clapper" Garrett.

    It's funny at least to me, back in the day when Tom Landry was coaching, I couldn't stand him. But I was young and immature, and didn't know any better. Later on I learned what a great guy he actually was with his moral principles and esteemed military service. He flew a number of missions over Germany during WW2 in a B-17. Courage that I can't even comprehend, always just one accurate flak shell away from death.

    While I will never like the Dallas Cowboys, especially Jerry Jones, I have now for years had the ultimate respect for Tom Landry and consider myself a fan of his.

    I mention this because despite the current situation, overall you've been very fortunate to have had Tom Landry as your coach, one of the greatest of all time. And don't forget Jimmy Johnson. Who knows how many more Super Bowls the Cowboys may have won with Johnson as the coach. But the arrogant, conceited P*ck Jerry Jones managed to screw that one up.

    You hit the nail on the head there Steve, as a Cowboy fan growing up in the 70's Landry will always be the GOAT to me, at first for his coaching success on the gridiron, and for the things you mentioned above as I got older and realized how great of an American he was. And yes, Jerry Jones is a self centered egotistical man who just couldn't stand Jimmy having all that deserved spotlight and recognition for his great work and therefore ruined it. And as for the Eagles, obviously they are my teams arch rival but some like Andy Reid and Darren Sproles have have gotten my respect over the years.

    i dislike the Cowboys org, but i loved Tom Landry. he epitomized what you wanted out of a head coach.

    and don't forget how he was unceremoniously fired by JJ. he heard the news unofficially from Tex Schramm, but didn't get it face-to-face from Jones until the next day.

    that was wrong and he deserved a better fate

    The Cowboys began their ring of honor in 1975. Really, it was a personal insult to Jimmy Johnson that it took all these years to finally just recently induct him.

    In my view as a sports fan, you can dislike the team, even the city, but still admire certain individual players and coaches even be a fan of theirs. With the exception of course if they're playing or coaching against a Philly team on game day. 😉

    If there's a penalty to be called there, it's on Mahomes as he's the one who lowered his head. It's illegal for an offensive player to lower their and use the helmet as a weapon. Mahomes didn't quite do that. In that situation, Mahomes was considered a "runner" and thus not eligible for helmet-to-helmet protection.

    So, no penalty.
