Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is once again facing some criticism for a questionable decision at the end of the first half of today's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Garrett decided to not call a timeout at the end of the first half, failing to give his team a chance at a Hail Mary! attempt.

The Cowboys go into the first half trailing the Falcons, 6-3.

Fans are not happy.

"COME ON, JASON GARRETT, CALL YOUR TIME OUT AND GIVE YOU TEAM A CHANCE AT A HAIL MARY. DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE BACK TO PLAYING NOT TO LOSE," Skip Bayless tweeted.

"WHY DIDNT WE GO FOR A HAIL MARY. THIS IS WHY I HATE JASON GARRETT..." another tweeted.

"Jason Garrett just told his entire football team that he doesn’t trust his offense to even attempt a throw to the endzone. That or he has no idea what he’s doing. Probably both. Whatever," one added.

It was certainly a puzzling decision. Garrett and the Cowboys had been more aggressive in recent weeks, especially during last Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. A lack of aggressiveness has been a regular criticism for Garrett during his time as the Cowboys' head coach.

The Cowboys and the Falcons should begin their second half in minutes. The game is on FOX.
