Uhm, wut? Dez is a better blocker than our 2 new TE's, how are they going to help the running game?
watch garrett run the ball 45 times and pass 15 times against the rams because of coach jones
wait... i forgot.... garrett is incharge
Anyone sense a compensation game coming up? Clouds of dust on first and second down followed by an incomplete pass to Witten on 3rd and 7?
Mr. Jones. respectfully please shut up. this is not fantasy football. sticking a guard in there isn't going to make the running game that much better. unless waters can push 2 DL at the same time. not all the breaks and pressures came from Beardy's side. there is problem all across the line and its deeper than just one freaking guard.
To be fair, the Cowboys as a team in 2009 were eighth best in the NFL in rushing yards, and second best in the NFL in yards per attempt.
these are my favorite posts on this message board. Swear to God. Favorite posts. I wish I could give you 25 "likes" for this baby. A thing of beauty. A gem. One for the ages. A hall of fame post.
And this isnt sarcasm either.
But you DO know that this stuff irks those that think JG is really calling the shots, right? You are aware of this arent you?
Flawed logic. The point is that Callahan will abandon the run. You don’t want that kind of coach at the helm when you are trying to improve your running game. It’s the same mentality that Garrett has. You either commit to the run or you don’t. They both would rather pass the ball instead of making the running game work.
1 1000+yd rusher in 11 seasons. With Jerry Jones, improvements are like staring at a lump of coal and waiting for it to turn into a diamond.
even when presented with the context some will refuse to accept the reality and just come up with a different excuse
If you CANNOT run, might as well pass is the point.
Back when Felix was the second coming of Jim Brown?
BIll C is that you?
I listened to the interview live this morning. Honestly that might have been his worse one yet. If @Risen Star heard it he might just jump. Complete buffoonery when talking about the run game and offense in general.
No doubt, at some point this season Jerry will be on the sidelines with a ball cap.
Or figure out WHY you cannot run and get it fixed. Someone miscalculated. Their belief (JJ and JG) was that the running game was going to be greatly improved coming into this season. And here we are heading to week # 3 and have no running game. There is a specific reason or reasons why the running game has continued to disappoint. I dont think just ditching the run game because they havent figured out the problem is very responsible. And certainly not a recipe for playoff success if you have to go to NY, Philly, Washington, Green Bay, Chicago in January and win a bad weather playoff game.
I'll believe it when I see it.
What did u just say, confusing? Clarify
I think the logic is sound. There are definitely situations within games where you do need to abandon the run, depending what the defense is doing to stop it, and how effective you can be passing it as a result. It's just not possible to say from the Gruden anecdote what Callahan was specifically referring to, but it's not hard to imagine situations where you wouldn't continue running the ball at a 1-yard-per-rush clip.
Oh I get it, if you can't run the ball do the next best thing, throw 2-3 yard passes and punt on 4th down.
A chip off the old block.
