IRVING, Texas — The big lie — the one about Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett wanting a more balanced offense — began in the offseason and continued in training camp.

Two games into the season, we’re still hearing about Garrett’s never-ending quest to run the ball more.

In Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Tony Romo dropped back to pass on each of the Cowboys’ last 19 plays. DeMarco Murray’s final carry was a 2-yard run with 2:12 left in the third quarter and the Cowboys trailing by a point.


Now, Garrett will talk about the plays Dez Bryant made against man-to-man coverage. And he’ll talk about the Chiefs’ defensive scheme against certain formations that made it difficult to run.

We all know today’s NFL is about throwing the ball, but this remains a game dominated by alpha males and teams that control the line of scrimmage.

Gene has been an avid Dallas Cowboys fan for nearly five decades, which amounts to just about his entire life. The only time he was not a Cowboys fan was that brief period at the beginning of his life, when he didn't have all his baby teeth and could not yet say "Cowboys." As soon as quit slobbering, he started hollering, "Go Cowboys!"
