Tony Romo says everyone's jobs are easier if Cowboys can run

The Dallas Cowboys have struggled to get their ground game going this year. It has been blamed on a variety of things, Bill Callahan’s tendency to pass and disinterest in running. It has been blamed on starting running back DeMarco Murray and his running style.

“It just makes everyone’s job easier if you can run the ball effectively,” Romo said, via ESPN Dallas.

“It’s about production,” Romo said. “So we’re trying to figure out different ways and I think we’ll do some things in the future to continue to get better and better at it.”

Nevertheless the Cowboys have struggled to run. ESPN ranks their run offense 27th in the league with an average of 62 yards per game. So far this season DeMarco Murray has carried the ball 32 times for 111 yards. Who to blame has been the subject of a lot of finger pointing in Dallas but they need to stop looking for the next scapegoat and start looking for the next solution. Maybe working on it together as a team?
