In the Hall of Fame game, the Cowboys ran the football over 57 percent of the time. They ran the ball just 33.8 percent of the time a season ago. Dallas also only threw the ball 21 times in its latest exhibition, albeit without Tony Romo playing a single down.
The Cowboys have some talent in the backfield between DeMarco Murray, Joseph Randle and backs. Even with Murray in the fold last season however, Romo tallied 648 attempts, a career-high for him.
Missing the playoffs for the third straight year with a pass-first offensive approach, it looks like Dallas might be switching its mindset.
Randle, Phillip Tanner and Lance Dunbar have all shown an ability to make things happen when given the ball so far this offseason. With a healthy DeMarco Murray and talented backups, it would only make sense for offensive coordinator Bill Callahan to pound the rock this year.
The Cowboys are on their way to finally balancing out an offensive attack that has the ability to make some noise in the NFC this year.
