    [SIZE=-1]BENNY GREEN - SPOTSYLVANIA, VA:[/SIZE] Why in the world is Jason Garrett so reluctant to use Felix Jones more? This guy is a playmaker that hardly touches the ball. Nick: I say we wait a week or two before complaining about the running game and the rotation. Washington isn't a great example because not only is the Redskins' run defense rather stout, but the score made it a little tough to commit to the run. I do think Felix Jones needs more than eight carries and 10 touches. Let's wait until this next game and see how the carries are getting divided.

    DAN FLOES - GULF BREEZE, FL:What, if anything, should we read into the fact that in the final drive Tony Romo seemed to key in on Dez Bryant instead of Miles Austin, Roy Williams or Jason Witten?

    Josh: I really don't know what you're trying to read into it. Romo tried to find the guy he thought was open. It happened to be Dez four times. The guy does get himself open better than Williams. Witten's not a great guy for the two minute drill if he's trolling the middle, and Austin probably got more attention, but still ended up being a big part of the drive.

    "Washington isn't a great example because not only is the Redskins' run defense rather stout, but the score made it a little tough to commit to the run."

    HUH? You gotta be kidding me?! The ENTIRE first half was 3-0?! And the last quarter was a one score game. That's 3/4 of the game being a one score game.

    And we don't try and run the ball because the Skins defense is "rather stout"? It's the first game of the year with a new DC. How in the world do you know what the Skins D is before you play them in the first game of the year. And you let a "rather stout" defense dictate to you that you won't run the ball?! That's total nonsense.

    The fact is Red simply has no commitment to the running game. He's basically Steve Spurrier 2.0.

    Yeah, we need to get rid of Red just like we did the OC we had before him. That guy knew nothing about offense.

    Actually he had to learn the concept of running the football and being committed to it. Look at his first NFC Championship game against the Bears and compare that to last season with his NO ground game. That team has great balance offensively now that Sean has learned the importance of the running game.

    So, he knew nothing about offense then had an epiphinany in New Orleans?

    And yes, Drew Brees hand the ball off all the time.
