Can the Cowboys front 7 stop Tashard Choice? (Yes, I know the Skins also have Ryan Torain and Roy Helu, but neither of them ever wore a star.)
The last time these 2 teams played each other, the Cowboys defense was holding opposing teams to less than 3 yards a rush. Both Hightower and Helu were held to 3 yards a carry or less. Hightower is on IR, so the former Cowboy Tashard Choice is expected to play.
The Cowboys have shown in the last 3 weeks that they are vulnerable to being run on in the middle of the field. The Redskins are struggling to run the ball; they average less than 4 yards a carry and 90 yards a game.
If Tashard can have any semblance of success on the ground he will have the crowd behind him. You know that every Skin’s fan would love to see a former Cowboy, a Jerry Jones castaway, lead his team to victory over the hated Cowboys.
I am one of the people who think that Choice should have been given the chance to do more when he was in Dallas, although, I kinda changed my mind when he fumbled for what seemed like twice in a row.
I really hope he does well wherever he ends up. Even this week, I hope he plays well. I don’t think it matters how well he plays, the Redskins will not be able to score enough points.
Unfortunately for Choice, I think that the Skins will fall behind early and he won’t get many chances to carry the ball. I read somewhere that in the 2 games before Miami, the Skins threw the ball around 80 times, but only rushed it 26 times.
