Defendant #2: The Offensive Line

The State thinks this one is a slam-dunk! Outside of rookie center Travis Frederick, this is almost the same offensive line that helped Dallas become one of the worst rushing offenses in 2012. The most penalized offensive lineman in the NFL, Doug Free, was retained in the offseason at half price and is currently our starting right tackle. Last year starter guard Nate Livings, who suffers from a degenerative knee issue, was replaced by guard Ron Leary who also suffers from a degenerative knee issue. Same players. Same results. The State rests.

    I voted other because I couldn’t decide on which phase of the offense was more at fault for a lack of running game. Murray is a mediocre running back. Even when he has a hole to run through he more often than not runs into the defenders demonstrating a lack of vision. Rather than breaking tackles he often turns and starts back peddling. Murray is a good receiver and should be utilized more as such if he is going to be their feature back. The offensive line is also mediocre and this is well documented. The Jury is still out on Callahan’s play calling but from what I have seen thus far it is not good.

    Jerry Jones: ONE o-lineman selected in the draft over the past two years despite a glaring need to upgrade the line.

    Tony Romo Calls audible to the pass too often, look at the numbers, 70% pass 30% run. The play clock approaches zero on nearly every play, this is why the Cowboys have so many delay of game, false start and motion penalties. Every time Romo goes to the line all you hear is him killing the play, he changes the play multiple times thus confusing everyone including himself.
