Your Thursday morning open thread:
We heard it all around Redskins Park yesterday--from the head coach, the quarterback, everyone you asked. The Redskins need to run the football if they are going to beat the Cowboys on Sunday.
But there's an issue with that. Here a snip from a post I put up yesterday: " Dallas has allowed 3.8 yards per rushing attempt, 13th in the league. It may be better to attack through the air as they are giving up 8.2 yards per pass attempt, 25th in the NFL."
The Cowboys are last in the league in passing yards per game (326). Not only has Peyton Manning carved them up for over 400 yards passing but Philip Rivers and Eli Manning did, too. No team in NFL history has allowed more than three 400-yard performances in a season and Dallas has yielded that many with 11 games to go.
So what do you do? Should the Redskins stick with running the ball even though that's the strength of the Dallas defense? Or should they go through the air, where the Cowboys are more vulnerable?
Put on your offensive coordinator hat and let us know what you think.
