Good. Now admit you need to call short passing plays and script the 1st 2 drives. I really don't think we script the first quarter anymore.

Agreed....I don't think we need to run, run, pass....but 13 carries/attempts per game just will not cut it. I do think Sproles going down was huge though in regards to gameplan bc I thought we'd see more screens mixed in using his speed...

I just hope he doesn't force it to try and overcorrect himself. I always hope that we can get the running game going, but if we just can't it's just a wasted play

I'm more worried that he's full of shite. He said that balance was an issue last season and we're currently averaging a whopping .7 more rushing attempts per game than we did in 2012.

Well our running game has been pretty bad. It's hard to correct it by just running into a wall repeatedly (looking at you ingram)

Maybe after all these years he's realizing he has a guy named Pierre Thomas on his team and that he is a picture perfect back that averages 4.5 yards per carry over his career.

Then again maybe Ingram showed him something last week.

Does that mean more carries for Hill?

Cowboys will stack the box now. Drew might throw it 60 times on Sunday.

I do think we need to go to him more but I also don't want to wear him down with 20-25+ carries a game. Talking about PT, not ingram.

I think we should do more no huddle earlier in games, mixing in draws to get some running going.
