The Cowboys had one of their lowest running outputs in team history in the 26-24 loss to the Redskins. And Wade Phillips admitted they didn't run the ball enough, especially at home. Wade always says they have to establish their will at home by running the ball. The Cowboys didn't even try Sunday with just 11 carries, one shy of the franchise-low of 10 in 1989.
Wade said part of the reason for so few carries were situations which Tony Romo audibled to too many pass plays. It created a glaring imbalance of 47 passes to 11 runs. Marion Barber had just 8 carries for 26 yards and only three carries in the second half.
