The shifting of the blame for the Cowboys woeful running totals have gone from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan to quarterback Tony Romo and back and forth.
The Cowboys, who are coming off a team-record low nine rushing attempts in the 27-23 victory against the Vikings last Sunday, have called 346 passes to 183 runs this season.
And with that maybe "called" is too strong of a word, considering that there is a belief that Romo has changed many running plays to pass plays at the line of scrimmage, intensifying the disparity.
Romo said he doesn't care what anyone thinks. His focus is on winning.
“I don’t care,” he said. “We won the football game. You can say whatever you want. It doesn’t really bother me. It’s about winning the games. If you’re worried about things other than that then you’re not in the right job as a player or a coach. Our football team takes that approach every week.
“Like we’ve said 50 times, everyone wants balance. We want it as well. We’re going to want to find that balance. We’re going ttero need it. It will help everybody and things will be easier. At the same time, you have to call a game to win.
