When one understands that we are 30th in the league with a 3.6 per carry rushing average...it's not that difficult to see that the Boys must turn to a short passing game to compensate for the lack of a running game. It's been a lot worse in the absence of Murray. Since he went down the run game has produced 2.97 per play. So those who criticize the passes to Witten simply don't get it. When Romo and Jason work together the completion rate is near 70%, the turnovers and negative plays are almost nonexistent...and the chains move down the field. The combo would be viewed as a devastating duo...if you simply viewed it as a running game. Which, when you think about it...it almost is. We do need a vertical threat. But with our pathetic o-line and with Mile's hammies...that's not going to happen this season. Upon setting up in the pocket, Romo has been getting about .005 seconds before the pocket collapses. His ability to work with Jason to turn such situations into positive yardage was uncanny Sunday and was the #1 key of the game to turn that from debacle into victory. The best thing about this team's offense is Romo and Witten. Yet somehow around here that combo gets the most criticism. The complete lunacy in attacking this in some back water corners of Cowboy nation... is beyond comprehension.
