After reading all the blogs around the web, the newspaper articles and watching sports news shows, all I have heard is what the Dallas Cowboys are missing. I know that is important. Believe me, I have thought about that also, but friends, what about the great things the Cowboys do have!
The Dallas Cowboys have the most talented running backs in the NFL! Marion Barber, goes with out saying, is one of the best (and one of the strongest) backs when you get him in short yardage situations or in the red zone. He had 885 yards during the 2008 season with 238 carries and 7 touchdowns.
Felix Jones, ok everyone knows I am his #1 fan, but that aside, he showed what he could do in the short time he did play last year. He is so exciting to watch because you never know when he is going to break a long one. Felix only played 5 games because of injury, but he had a amazing 266 yards with only 30 carries, which is a average of 8.9 every time he touched the ball.
Then we have Tashard Choice… Wow, look at what he did when he filled in last season! He played in 10 games and had a average of 5.1 yards a carry.
I can’t wait to see how the coaches decide to play them.
We know they will all step on the field in some type of roles, because their is no way those boys from Georgia, Oklahoma and Minnesota will stay on the sidelines.
How would you like to see the coaches play all this talent?
Come on LSS readers, this is your chance to be a coach… Tell us, how you would play these three talented running backs… Would you use any of them on special teams?
I am not sure about their contracts, but this could be the only season we can have all three, so I hope we take full advantage of it.
