    I know that we have to play a really good game to win Sunday night but I feel that if we get Murray going it will be key in beating Washington. Its seems whenever Murray makes some good runs, Garrett decides to start passing on every down, getting us in 3rd and long situations. I know yesterday Murray made some good runs and after that we threw the ball on all three downs and this was before the fumble?? I don't get it. I know the league is going to a passing league but if Murray can get going, feed him the ball, control the clock, and keep Griffen on the bench.....

    I know its a given that a good running game will help us but my point in the original post is Garrett seems to get away from running when its working?

    The key is stopping their run game and making their offense one dimensional. Unfortunately, I don't think our banged up defense can do that.

    This is an understatement. Murray has to have a very good run game and ball protection as well. The only way we win this game is if we have some ball controlling drives that end up with points at the end of each drive because they are going to riddle our D. A few 3 and out's by our offense and we'll be seeing the first half of the thanksgiving game all over again.

    He is one of the key players but I think play of Austin/Harris may be more important .

    Witten and Dez will be doubled and they will dare us to beat them with rest of the receivers.

    The key is Tony Romo like it's always been. He has to continue to play lights out and hope we make enough stops in the end to win a shoot out.

    Lucky for us Rg3 is hobbled with a bumb knee. I'll take that any day of the week.

    Just put it all on Tony, he is our best player, go with an up tempo/hurry up offense until we are ahead by more than 2 scores.

    Romo is without a doubt the most important piece of the puzzle but why not let Murray run and take some of the load off Romo, if its working? Garrett won't run Murray enough when he's getting good yards on every carry...

    Someone tell me why Murray is so great? Have not seen it at all this year, now that rb in Seattle is a different story

    Agree with the doubling of Dez/Witten. Other guys must step up.

    I'd be careful and not fall into the trap of feeding Murray too much as that is the strength of the Skins D. Keep Murray involved but don't let the porous Skins pass defense off the hook either.

    Wow just looked up his stats, 587 and 4tds. That's horrible, he had 1/2 of that in one game last year. Time to draft another Rb, one that can stay healthy

    Calvin Johnson only has 5 td's so I guess he's horrible too. Look, Murray has had a few injuries and is playing injured. They guy is a good back and can't easily be replaced. When healthy, he is a beast.

    Beast? I think not, he may be ok but he is no AP, not even close

    I just wish we would go to a hurry up offense and not even make a game of this.

    He sure as hell hasn't been the past 2 weeks.

    He's hindered this team and put them in bad position.

    We lose yesterday's game because of him
