Found September 17, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
The offensive examination this week gives me a chance to argue with the wind about the role of running in the NFL in 2013. You see, in the modern age, there are few things that get debated by those that enjoy the advanced metrics that Football Outsiders and similar numbers sources like the role of the run game and runpass ratios. Do you run to win or do you run when you win? They tell you with great confidence that surely, you run because you are winning and that multiple carries is simply the spoils of your victory (see: Jamaal Charles on Sunday). It is the classic chicken or egg discussion, and although I subscribe to much of what that section of the football community has sold, I disagree with the deeper issues here. Why?

Garrett: Romo's ribs are not an issue

Cowboys Offense Stifled, Lose to Chiefs 16-17

The Cowboys offense has picked up exactly where the 2012 version left, and that’s not going to get it done. We can’t run the damn ball, and we can’t convert 3rd downs because we are always stuck on 3rd and longs. The offense sucks man, same story. Tony Romo’s last offensive drive was horrendous, two near INTS, over throws – weak! I’m not very confident in Morris Claiborne...

Kansas City 17, Dallas 16: Uninspired Yet Again

Why have the Dallas Cowboys struggled to be better than mediocre? Why has this team gone 8-8 in back to back seasons? Tony Romo could not guide the Cowboys to a win in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs. Perhaps we will have even more answers later this year, as the Cowboys look very much like an 8-8 team thus far. Most good teams at some point build some momentum. Perhaps the...
