There have been 15 games this season when a team completed at least 70 percent of its passes for at least 250 yards and at least three touchdowns. Nine of those 15 teams averaged less than 4.1 yards per carry in those games (the league average this season is 4.2), and seven averaged less than 3.8.....
You said you win by passing more effectively than the other team. Romo is completing almost 67% of his passes. That's pretty high, however, where are we losing the effectiveness.
I'm not calling you out, I'm just interested in your take on that. I think some of us, including myself, get caught up in the "when Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith, insert RB here, eclipses 100 yards a game the Cowboys are 24-4" type stat.
