Garrett has a tough Choice

This offseason has been crazy for Jason Garrett.  Meetings for head coaching positions, endless ridicule from our (sometimes unfaithful) fan base, and a running gag order, which kept him even more quiet than usual.  It seems to me that in the midst of all this, and the hard work he’s putting into his offenses arsenal, he has an obstacle on the horizon.

Tashard Choice finished the season impressively strong.  The question is… just how impressive was he?  I would say he was a diamond in the rough.  Choice finished with 92 rushes for 427 yards with a 5.1 average.  On top of that he finished with 21 receptions for 185 yards.  Not impressed?  How about he accomplished that in 4 games against Pittsburgh, New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia in the thick of a competitive playoff rush.  Still not impressed? Against a strong New York Giants Defense Choice dazzled with 9 attempts for 91 yards.  Our other running backs? Well, while healthy in Week 9 against the Giants Marion Barber was only 19 for 54.

Now don’t murder me yet Dallas Faithful, if anyone knows how valuable Marion the Barbarian, and Flashy Felix is, it’s me.  I love them both and think we are entirely blessed to have them.  My argument is simply this:  Tashard Choice has earned a chance to have legitimate snaps as a Cowboys tailback.  Things that can be done are possibly implementing a split back system with Choice and Jones or implementing him into “I” formations to identify holes to finagle through for some serious downhill running.  He would also work well out of the Shotgun.  If we can implement all three backs our potential is limitless!

So Jason, you have more to think about than you think, but I think you can handle it!

    Hopefully Garrett can gets things rolling this off-season, like I have been saying before, when Sparano and the others left for BIg Tuna I don’t think J Garrett was ready for everything that was thrown at him last year. He has a lot on his table atm and hopefully he can work them all out in time for the season opener, only time will tell I suppose. But I agree with you on the swapping out running backs, sorta like the Giants have done before. Will also leave “The Barbarian” healthy for the 4th quarter and the tough 3rd downs we really need him on.

    Things just got a ton more interesting guys. TO was cut!

    You know as crazy and unrealistic is this is next season we should run some packages with Felix Jones at WR. Heck even if it’s just a screen he can fly but it would give Choice some chances to run the ball. I think Barber is the best all around player I think Felix is the fastest and most explosive threat on the offense and Choice is the best 1st and 2nd down back.

    I don’t mean that Choice is better then Barber because as I said he is the best pure back but I think Choice is a great player and so is Jones.

    Garrett needs to be fired

    I’m all about moving Barber back to the closing role. I think he would be way more effective and proved that while JuJo was still here. But, I don’t want to take touches away from Felix any more than we have to. I do believe that Choice can make an impact, but I want to see our best back get the majority of the carries, and that back is most definitely Felix. Sure, bring in Choice as a change-up, but make sure Felix gets most of them.
