He is the “Earth” in the three headed monster of running backs by committee. MB3 ran for 124 yards on 18 carries with 1 touchdown. He definitely earned his name as Barbarian. Marion showed quickness and toughness in him we haven’t seen in a while. He would of had another score if it wasn’t for his quad tightening up. He looked just as good as any running back that played on Sunday. Barber also had 31 yards on 2 catches when Tony was not at his best
This weeks defensive/special teams game ball goes to Felix Jones.The wind of the group. Even though Felix had a fumble that the Giants capitalized on. He had 134 yards on 6 run backs.

He scored the go ahead touchdown to put the Cowboys up 31 to30.

    On defense I would have to go with Ratliff. The man is always getting through the line to make plays. Let’s also not forget the play where he covered Bradshaw coming out of the backfield to make a great tackle.

    The whole D-Line, where the LB’s was losing in coverage. The Line was on point. Mostly Igor and Ratliff.

    Ive heard many fans saying the defense was horrible and blaming them and I totally disagree!

    I would have given the awards to Marion Barber and Jay Ratliff.

    barber on offense…ratliff on defense…j-ratt seemed to be the only defensive player visable that night…many a time i saw him breaking through to make crucial stops…one in paticular was when he rushed to the flat to stop a screen pass for no gain on a crucial 3rd down…i liked sensabaugh and james that night too…
