Felix is a fine back. For whatever reason, the blocking for him is **** on most of his plays. There are guys in the backfield. It's probably Garrett calling specific plays for Felix that arent working. He needs more touches. The handling of the running game is horrid, already this season.

Felix can be a pro bowl type back, imo. He just doesnt get the ball enough. Not even close. We're talking about a guy who has averaged 6.5 yards per carry in his first two years. 15 carries in the first two games? Get him the god damn ball.

Felix has lost all burst. If you can't see that, then you're in denial.

He's broken right now. Choice should be getting more chances to run.

He hasnt lost it all...I agree he does look a little slower. But honestly...he has 15 carries on the year. He's not getting touches to even do anything with it.

Goes both ways... he does nothing when he gets it.

Also, AOA doesn't impress me at all... anyone else feel that way? I see no speed, no wiggle, no courage... nothing really. Since Felix is so fresh, I'd like to see him back there instead... to prove he still has "it".

Dez needs to start. Sure Roy played decent besides the fumble, but he just doesn't cut it. Bring him in for third downs, spreadng it out, and a jump ball. But everytime dez is targeted, he performs.

On the bright side.. I don't think minnesota will be as hard of a game as we thought.

Well actually, looking at the schedule.. being 0-2 sucks, but if we can pull off the texans, and regroup in the bye, we could still do pretty well.

Nah. I like AOA back there. Looked like he was having some problems adjusting to the playing surface. He was falling all over himself. He does have some nice burst.

And half the time Felix gets the ball, he's met in the backfield. And that is not on him at all. Whatever Garrett is calling for him, aint working. They dont block on most of his runs. Take another gander, if you can. It's ridiculous. And yeah, we need to throw out that delayed draw, that doesnt work at all anymore. Just like that razor back garbage.

Dez basically does start. He played more snaps than Roy did today. There were tons of two WR sets with just Miles and Dez.

Roy was actually playing well, until Paul jinxed it. :P

It was nice to see Hurd and Ogletree get in a little bit...but neither saw any targets. I was yelling on one play imparticular, where Hurd was wide ass open about 20 yards down field and Tony didnt even look that way. :(

As for more on AOA or kick return in general...we seriously have one of the worst blocking units, I've seen in the league. Same as last year, there is a guy free and ready to tackle our return man at about the 8 yard line. We're lucky to even get it past the 20 on most returns.

He played a lot. Roy was on the sidelines a whole lot. Roy would catch a pass and then run to the sidelines. Dez and Miles were out there together a bunch of times.

Dez plays more than Roy already.

Well, Nick Folk just nailed a 49 yder, that might just sting more then anything else going on right now with this team honestly. If we don't miss those FG's then it is a completely different game at the end of those games and changes the complex. Ugh.


Also there is something wrong with Felix, calling him a pro bowl type back is just giving him WAY too much credit and at some point you need to have a dude show up on the field instead of pumping him up into something he's never proved, ever. There still is plenty of time for him to get much better but he's nowhere near the same, he would have turned plenty of those runs into TD's last few years.


Saying he can be a pro bowl back is just ridiculous MOTH, it has no merit. We can't keep blaming everything he doesn't do on Garrett, offensive line, no touches, not staying healthy, when it is ever gonna be his fault? Or is it ALWAYS gonna fall on someone else? Why does he get a free pass for everything?

uhhhh....he's averaged 6.5 yards per carry in his first two years. There is certainly some merit, there.

You want him to show up on the field? How about giving him the ball?

And yes...please watch the game again, if you dont want to blame some of this on Garrett. How do you expect him to go anywhere when he is being hit as soon as he touches the ball?

He doesnt get a free pass. If the guy got 15-20 carries and sucked...I'd say so, no problem. He doesnt get the ball.

The problem is this year, not his first two years, obviously were looking at a potential problem with the weight gain. I'm not arguing what he was in his first two years.


We also didn't have to give him the ball very much the first two seasons for him to show up in a big play here and there did we? It would be nice, but he was still busting out big plays with very few carries most weeks.


And I didn't say I don't want to blame anything on Garrett, or that he deserves no blame because he does, my problem is that your putting everything off of Felix and onto the line, Garrett, touches, play-calling, and a number of other things and not giving him any blame for not looking like the same explosive RB he was before.

Felix doesnt deserve much blame until he actually gets the ball. You want to write him off after 15 carries?

And our line has regressed from last year, once again...save LT. The run blocking has not been impressive at all.

The O-Line makes the running game go...Felix isnt even getting the blocking to get to the 2nd level.

I never said write him off, but come on MOTH, 7 carries for 7 yards, come on now.


Marion Barber is running behind the same line ya know? He had 11 carries for 31 yards. While it's nothing to write him about it's a pretty big disparity between the two especially considering Barber is nowhere near as explosive or a home run threat, or at least he's not supposed to be. He also looked much better hitting the holes and in the open field.


I never said to write him off or anything close to that, what I am saying is that he has been disappointing thus far, and that I'm not just gonna look at everyone BUT Felix. That's just not logical at all.

They have different running packages...many of Felix's play calls are off the edge or built to get him in space. But there has been no where to run. Marion is running between the tackles almost exclusively these days.

Marion has seen better blocking...Felix has been getting hit as soon as it's handed off on many occassions. It is completely logical...Felix is still a "speed" back, he sees different play calls then Barber. And for whatever reason, our run blocking on these plays has been incredibly sketchy. Garrett needs to weed through the crap and actually find some good ones, or at least...call more in between the tackle runs for Felix. Our run blocking looks nothing like it did a year ago. The holes are just not there. I'm more than ready to blow up that whole line...and also sick of this shuffling of running backs. Garrett's use of Jones has been criminal over the years. Might as well run one back...since there is no real balance at all in our offense and he struggles to try and spread the ball around between the backs. Garrett's handling of our "weapons" is moronic and he's just hurting the team. I honestly believe, the guy is in over his head and has no idea how to satisfy all the players, with just one ball to go around.

As for Felix...I'll be first in line to admit him sucking...if he indeed does, when he actually gets say 15 or so carries. But I in no way think that's the case. He should be fine, but right now there are several factors leading to out rushing struggles.

And just an FYI...he has had a couple of games like this already on Dallas. I specifically remember a 6 for 6 effort last year. I wouldnt even really worry about him. People are just jumping the gun here. If he actually gets the ball, he'll make good things happen, so long as the line holds up.

Hard to feel good about anything this team is doing right now. The structure of organization is extremely flawed but that's another matter entirely. About the only thing I feel good about right now is that Dez Bryant draft pick. If he's fortunate enough to stay away from serious injuries he should eventually own every single Cowboys receiving record.

If it weren't for the fact that I've become a bigger college than NFL fan I'd be even more devastated by 0-2. It still freaking sucks though! :-(

Can't say I didn't see this outcome coming. Want some food for thought....

How many times with 2 minutes or when we are down do you see us successfully run a no huddle offense. Who calls these plays...Romo...what are no huddle offenses...simplistic. This is when we thrive.

If you want to give Garrett credit I like his opening drives usually...now that said if they go 3 and out it's usually downhill from there..but he can write up a script to move the ball...but put in factors like penalties or a sack and all of a sudden he's exposed again.

I'm going to wait till i rewatch the game as I missed some of the first half...but interesting question. Jerry has stud by Wade and likes Wade. If dallas loses next week to a good Houston team going into the bye does Jerry ask Wade wtf is going on...and Wade maybe sellout Garrett to save his job. I don't think sellout is the right word...but when Jerry and Stephen Jones start looking for answers you think maybe they give Wade a chance to save his job?

Who's idea was it to get Dan Reeves?

If wade get's fired with Garrett as his OC he once again got screwed...Wade hasn't been perfect but I just have a sense that he's getting sliced pretty thin. I think he's spending more time with Garrett and the offense and that is showing up on Sunday when the defense isn't able to get to the QB the way we do when we play top tier teams. You can tell when Wade puts in the extra time with his gameplan...it's when we look dominant.

I said that last week when we lost to a division opponent...if I remember right you told me we'd be alright not to overreact haha.

The worst part of this whole thing is that out of the first three games this game against Houston is the one game we could afford to lose. Conference games are so important especially when you are looking at a 9-7 record where tie breakers are going to be a huge factor.

At this point it's going to take one hell of a turnaround to pull off a playoff birth. I'm not saying it's impossible...hell we still have a very good chance at winning our division...that said our team hasn't shown us anything to think they can play a game without shooting themselves in the foot.

Personally at this point I'd like to see us go 0-3 into the bye week and have a change made on the coaching staff...that said I find it highly unlikely that it'd happen. The main reasoning behind this is that who is going to be the OC? John Garrett? I just don't think we have the guy to step up...and I don't think you can go without a OC and a DC.

So using what I said above...obviously a win is important...and it'll be important to win any game even if it's an afc opponent but I'm not even confident that we will beat Houston. I know we "can" but this team just seems to lack the fortitude to buckle down when it counts. I hope I'm wrong..but our inability to create a push in the trenches on offense give me no confidence that it'll change. Our Ol has regressed every year since Sparano has left and Houck is the highest paid OL coach in the league...he's proven...so using that I'm going to put the blame on Garrett. He's proven to be an elitest with more hubris than most ivy league grads....we win despite him not because of him...that is a huge issue and should have been addressed when Stewart was fired.

We don't have a fg kicker, until that changes we'll lose all these close games. It's pretty simple. He's missing short ones too, it's just not even worth hoping to win knowing that's what we relied on.

Haha, I'm in like pergatory right now. Half of the thinks its already a lost season, while the other have realizes we can still easily win our division.

Although, I do think we beat the texans. I have that feeling, and when I do i'm usually right. (knock on wood)

The only team I'm legit scared of is the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is just other worldly right now.

The eagles, giants, vikes, saints, colts don't scare me. If we right this ship I think we can turn it around. Hell, we could go 14-2.

Time will tell. Sucks being 0-2 and having to wait a week to watch another game.

I second this. I knew he was missing that.
