Stephen A Smith’s reaction to the Cowboys’ loss was pure gold
No one was happier than ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith after the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated in the Wild Card Round.
Sunday, January 16th, is an absolutely terrible day if you are a Dallas Cowboys fan. Coincidentally, it’s a great day out if you don’t like Cowboys. With lofty expectations set, Dallas failed miserably to fulfill their championship goal, as they lost 23-17 to the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round.
Perhaps no one was happier with the Cowboys being knocked out of the knockout stages than ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. It was obvious, when he posted his traditional video of laughing at Dallas for losing a game.
Stephen A. Smith laughs after the Cowboys lost to the 49ers in the playoffs
There have been plenty of heartbreaking playoff moments for Dallas in recent years, but this might just be the worst of them all.
Dallas overcame a 23-7 deficit to win the game in the final seconds. Down 23-17, they won possession after the 49ers’ costly mis-start in a midfield scramble forced them to scrap it. From there, the Cowboys ran out of bounds to inching closer and closer to the final area. That’s when disaster struck.
In the second and first half, midfielder Dak Prescott went up to knock them down, sending them inside the 25-yard line. The problem was that the clock had less than 10 seconds left, and Dallas had to wait for the umpire to touch the ball to increase the tempo.
Once that happens, it’s too late, like Prescott reduce football speed as soon as the match clock expires. That earned the 49ers a nasty win and a trip to Green Bay to face the Packers in the Split.
Now, the Cowboys and their fan base will question what might have happened. As for Smith, he will certainly celebrate when Dallas has failed to win the Super Bowl again.
