    Murray could have run for 200+ yards tonight. Why did we abandon it for no good reason?

    We could have run it down their throats in OT. But no, let's get cute!

    This game is on the coaching staff. Period.

    This team HAS NOT CHANGED.

    When we needed it most, we PASSED instead of ran.

    When we needed our defense the most vs COLT FREAKING MCCOY, he tears us up.

    Excuse me, but I'm in complete shock right now. Unbelievable how we (6-1) lose to the Washington Redskins.

    19 carries for Murray and 140 yards. And its not like he had just one big run. He was literally gashing them for almost 5 yards a carry almost every time.

    This is the most infuriating loss I've seen in years. The team didn't play great, but this is almost 100% on the coaching staff.

    I thought romo could have ran for the first down on the last play.

    Not mad about not running particularly on 2nd down when it's 4 down territory, but to not run AT ALL is absolutely insane when Murray just had a 7 yard gain.

    I wish we had access to how many times we threw on 2nd and short in this game. The play calling was really suspect tonight.

    Serious question: Have the Cowboys been stopped on 3rd/4th and short all year?

    Is there any doubt the O-line can get 3 yards on two run plays? I would bet a year's salary that they get it, even given the pass for a loss on 2nd down.

    He could have. And probably would have suffered another hellacious hit. It's over. We lost. Sucks, but the sun comes up tomorrow and we're still 6-2.
