I bet the Green Bay Packers would take Felix Jones right now. I wish Felix could go there now, because Dallas' run blocking has been putrid this year. Furthermore, the Packers are "winning", as Charlie Sheen states. They run quite a bit of inside zone, and Jones is a perfect fit in their overall offense. Jones has the talent and he's cheap and he's young. I bet the Packers look at him in free agency next year. Jones is just the type of player the Packers would go for. However, Murray is out; so that isn't happening.
Furthermore, the Packers and the rest of the NFL saw Jones' 18-92-1 against Baltimore, a game where running lanes and push actually existed. The Baltimore game was a thing of beauty, because Jones' play was unfiltered. The fans got to see Jones on the field with their own eyes. The extremely biased DFW media and some delusional fans were neutralized for a week. If Romo allows Kevin Ogletree to get set after he moves him, Jones busts 100 rushing yards in that game and the 20 carry mark. Unfortunately, the last two games have been blocked very poorly. The Cowboys really miss Phil Costa and Martellus Bennett in the running game. Tyron Smith is an elite run blocker, but he can't block 8 or 9 guys all by himself. Que the trench guys...
Importantly, Felix and Jenkins are not going any where, because Jason Garrett is probably coaching for his job, imo. Tanner and Dunbar, despite the iconic status given to them by some people, have some severe limitations.
If Felix gets some rushing lanes against the Falcons, he will shut the idiots up for another week. In fact, this is a big game for Jones, because he might just be playing in Atlanta next year. This is a great audition for him. Now, if he just had some rushing lanes and some push... That is another story.
