6. Jason Garrett
One of the most idiotic and clumsy decisions on this list, this one was frankly ridiculous. The Dallas Cowboys played the Arizona Cardinals with just seven seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys had the opportunity to win the game from a field goal. Dan Bailey promptly kicked the ball between the posts. But the problem was that it didn’t count because Garrett took that exact moment to call a timeout.
What he was thinking, nobody knows. As well as canceling out Bailey’s score, Garrett also rattled his kicker. Bailey missed his second attempt at the field goal which sent the game into overtime. This proved costly because, of course, the Cardinals ended up winning. One lapse in concentration and poor judgment cost his team the win. Nobody forgets these kinds of cringe-inducing moments.
