On Talking Cowboys today, Broaddus talks about this. He mentions all week Cowboys practiced a stretch run play. They ran it with Dunbar and he got 8 yards. They never ran it again. Broaddus wants to know why JG doesn't stick to plays that works.
Running the ball sort of went out of the window in the 2nd qtr don't you think trailing 25 pts?
I counted 19 passing plays of 31 total plays (minus kickoffs and punts) in the 1st half of the WAS game that had a receiver that ran a route that was 5 yds or less and they were stick routes, smokes, drags, in/outs, or slants. Austin, Bryant, Witten, Beasley, and Harris all ran those routes.
Romo didn't always go to the short route guy.
Sending everybody on a route that is 5 yds or less is flat out retarded. No offense in the NFL or NCAA operates like that.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
