Is Play Calling The Reason Cowboys Lost?
by Jean-Jacques Taylor, ESPN Dallas
IRVING, Texas — The big lie — the one about Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett wanting a more balanced offense — began in the offseason and continued in training camp.
Two games into the season, we’re still hearing about Garrett’s never-ending quest to run the ball more.
In Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Tony Romo dropped back to pass on each of the Cowboys’ last 19 plays. DeMarco Murray’s final carry was a 2-yard run with 2:12 left in the third quarter and the Cowboys trailing by a point.
Now, Garrett will talk about the plays Dez Bryant made against man-to-man coverage. And he’ll talk about the Chiefs’ defensive scheme against certain formations that made it difficult to run.
