I love posting Sturm's articles because he has great evidence and is also very fair
I found his latest article to be disturbing
Since 2007, the Cowboys have run the 28th most running plays in the NFL with 25.7 running plays per game. That ranks them higher than 2 teams that are passing kings: the Colts and the Saints and 2 teams that cannot run and have stopped trying: the Cardinals and the Lions.
Also, there have been 13 games under Garrett (since 2007) when the offense has gained fewer than 50 yards rushing. It happened once in 2007. Once in 2008. Once in 2009. Three times in 2010. And 2 more times in 2011. The other 5 times have all been this season, and this is a year where the Cowboys have only played 11 games! And for those arguing that it can be traced back to DeMarco Murray's health, well, actually, he was your running back in 3 of the 5 games in which the Cowboys have been under 50 yards.
Garrett's offense gets worse by the year. Sure, there's some excuses for the lack of productivity. At the end of the year, excuses don't matter and what you actually accomplished does. Garrett got hired because he won multiple games with Kitna as a QB. He succeeded despite having every reason not to.
Doesn't it trouble everyone that year by year, week by week, Garrett's offense gets more and more predictable? Running less effectively and reverting to shotgun so frequently?
