Yesterday the Dallas Cowboys should have easily beat the Green Bay Packers, especially when you take into account that they were up by 21 points and stopped running the ball. Well Jason Garrett admitted today that he made a mistake.
“They had some long drives where they had the ball a lot, but there’s no question when you look back in hindsight that we should have run the ball more,” Garrett said. “We were running it effectively. It does chew up some more clock. It wasn’t like we weren’t able to run it and, boy, the only way we could move this football is to throw it.
“I felt like we had good balance in the first half, made a lot of plays in the passing game, but DeMarco was running the ball well. I think in hindsight you look back on it and say we should have run the ball more, and tried to maintain our balance.”
