Also the bears threw 2 touchdowns off of play action at the goalline. If we do playaction at the goalline, its normally out of the shotgun.
    A playaction out of shotgun???

    I know Barber failed to convert short gains, but c'mon guys. Don't act like he's never shown you the ability to get yards when they weren't there. I swear... the appreciation for him has been totally shot. I feel like I'm the only one here who still wants him on the team.

      Barber should just be a goalline back now. Its kind of a waste, bc he got all that money and he's capable of being more than a goalline back, but Choice is simply the better RB in my eyes.

      Id split carries between Choice and Jones, and bring Barber in for short yardage.
      Well, I think this is the wrong group to tell that to. In the beginning of the season when I suggested Choice be the starter, Felix be the change of pace and Barber be the finisher, I got hammered for the idea.

      • I don't think it matters a bucket of p*ss who starts. Choice just needs more touches.

        • It all goes back to Garrett's lack of recognition and adjustment.

            I'm not sure that's Garrett's call.

              Yeah, he usually waits until Jerry gives him a call for the suggestion. LOL.


              You think I'm funny, but how many times has Jerry already had force Garrett to make changes?

              How the offense goes is ALL on Garrett. Wade doesn't even bother.

                I'm not sure we know that with 100% certainty.

                  Blame 'em both for all I care. But I see no reason NOT to blame Garrett for how he uses offensive players, how he calls the games, how he prepares for each game offensively, how he assigns players in each of his packages and how he makes adjustments both in game and between games. If he has to wait for someone to tell him something then he is already at fault.

                    I agree that Garrett has had some shakey moments. I'm willing to let this season play out before I'm going to pass judgement.

                      ...and then at the end just look at the "stats" right? hahaha.

                      Don't worry. Your boy Garrett will be back next season.

                        • Sooo it's Miles Austin, Jason Witten, Andre Gurode, Leonard Davis, Demarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff to the Pro Bowl!!! Wooohooo!

                          Only disappointments are Romo and Jenkins.

                          • Kosier is more deserving than Davis who benefits from being a first round pick and having name recognition. He's been solid but far from pro bowl level. Mike Jenkins should make it for years to come if the voters are smart.

                            • Davis? What a crock.

                              Jenkins out is also a crock.

                                Had the same feeling since getting a chance to see Choice late last season. Felt vindicated last year when Barber in a starting role fell injured and never looked the force he had been the two previous seasons.

                                Choice should get the first three or four drives of both halves. Felix should be used in a 3rd down backs role or in any situation which gives us a two back look.(Felix and Marion should be used in these sets)... And Barber should get nearly all the playing time at the end of the second and fourth quarters.

                                But Barber gets paid too much to be a 4th quarter situation specialist. Which was my issue when he got the paycheck that he got. I don't want to lose him in the slightest. Because there are way better coordinators out there who won't give him time based on how much he's getting paid but based on what he's good for.

                                I just want Garrett to smarten the **** up and utilise our RB's in a manner which will allow all three to prosper.
