It doesn't matter what our average is as long as it's over 1 yard per carry.
We needed one yard with 3 attempts, it's not something that needs to be overanalyzed. If you think they played it well, that's fine. I disagree.
Nobody's overanalyzing anything. And I obviously didn't say we nailed it. What I think was that it was a legitimate decision to pass the ball in that situation, and people who think otherwise either weren't watching what happens to a 6'5" C in short yardage and weren't aware that we repeatedly couldn't get that single yard when we needed it against that same front on two different drives earlier in the same game.
I'm with you, though, in wishing we'd called a play that worked. Unfortunately, the game's complicated and we can't just mail in an analysis by saying we should be calling more stuff that works. Technically, it may be true, but it's just not all that helpful.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
