The starting running back that missed half the season and when he was healthy and given the opportunity to run produced some decent results.
[View Full Quote]Yes most teams aren't like ours. Most teams don't have 2-3 good WRs, an All Pro te and a top 10-15 qb. Some teams have worse olines than we do. So yeah most teams aren't like ours. How many games were lost this year solely based on our oline. And no I'm not cheerleading this oline what I'm saying is our oline isn't the reason why are qb turned the ball over 20 times this season and why at times our defense couldn't stop anybody.
The run game wasn't much different with Murray on or off the field. We are the worst rushing team in football and the worst we've ever been. The reason for that is entirely due to the lack of NFL talent along the offensive line. To sit here and think that doesn't matter because of shiny names at the skill positions is just wrong.
I can't think of a single team in the league with less talent along the OL than the Cowboys.
