Jason Garrett and company need to be fired; they abandoned the run when it gave them the lead

The Cowboys entered the second half with a 26-3 lead and DeMarco Murray had 93 yards rushing on 11 carries.

Despite the big lead and success on the ground, the Cowboys ran by design on only seven of their 30 second-half plays (23 percent).

The league-average play call when leading this season is 53 percent pass, 47 percent run. The Cowboys entered Sunday with the second-lowest run percentage when ahead—37 percent.

The Cowboys averaged just as many yards on rushes as dropbacks in the first half. In the second half, the Cowboys averaged 1.9 yards more on rushes.

This was not a simple error, this was a planned error in my opinion.  Why would you abandon something when you are winning by a major margin?  I am so lost on this because the Dallas Cowboys really upset me sometimes.  Thankfully every NFC East team lost this week, but still it is not looking good for the Cowboys.
