If Murray was healthy, what would our record currently be?

    Another excuse for Jason Garrett... everyday it's a new player... guess what, when Murray was running with this team, we were still sucking, but everybody was blaming Costa being out for not being able to block for Murray or Tony Romo being harassed...

    Ding, ding, ding.. The argument has total validity, provided one argues that we actually were using play-action when Murray was in. the problem is the play-calling. We hardly ever use play-action.

    Murray >>>>>> Jones

    The team is far better--and especially tougher--with Murray.

    But all teams have injuries. Philly has now lost 4 starting olinemen.
    So no excuses here.

    He carried the ball far less and his numbers were greatly inflated by the Ravens game being he had small body of work.

    You're seriously going to sit here and argue when its noticeable to everyone including those calling the game this past week he isn't even the same caliber of runner?

    Obvious to even Garrett after he barely averaged a yard per carry vs the Giants? He couldn't even be trusted with 2nd and 1 to carry the rock 1 to get us a yard. No way if Murray is healthy we don't run the ball at least once in that situation.

    That's one game I can honestly say we would've won had Murray been healthy. There was no balance on offense all night vs a team Murray ran over and that critical situation I mentioned prior would've went down entirely different.

    Felix has been pedestrian all season missing holes and stumbling and bumbling without even being contacted smh

    Doesn't matter. Just an excuse.

    Not sure why people think he is suddenly the answer. Sure he's still the best overall RB on the roster but the OLine's lack of run blocking skills is more important.

    We had Murray healthy vs. Seattle, Tampa and Chicago and still couldn't run. Not sure if this means Phil Costa really is that good (or Baltimore's run defense really is awful) or maybe it just means Ryan Cook is mediocre...

    3-5.


    The OL doesn't magically become good run blockers cuz Murray is the one running the ball.

    The Cowboys had 227 yards rushing in that game, so Murray was not needed.
    Same record IMO.

    Take away that 39 yard "hail mary", which should have been a throw to the end zone, sunday and he averages 4.72 per touch.

    Felix's run was useless, just like his other end of game "hail mary" where he slides head first at the 20 and gets touched


    He is a worthless player, which will be noted when he receives the vet minimum next year (if at all)

    The Dallas media is on Felix Jones so hard that they are saying HE SHOULD NEVER SEE ANOTHER TOUCH AS A COWBOY. And that isn't Randy "Grandpa Urine" Galloway saying that.
