This just in -- Wade Phillips is happy with the Cowboys’ running game.
Hard to believe, but true.
When asked why third back Tashard Choice wouldn’t get a chance to play more, Phillips said of Felix Jones and Marion Barber, “There are two other guys I think are running hard. We’ve got to block better for them. We’ve got to execute the plays better. Those guys are running hard. I don't have a problem with the way they're running.”
Jones currently ranks 38th in the NFL with an average of 44 yards per game. Barber ranks 51st with 30.2 a game.
Combined, their 74.2 yards per game would rank them only 16th in the league.
But they’re running hard.
