Tony Romo looked incredulous. There was exasperation in his voice.

“We won the football game,” Romo said Thursday. “You can say whatever you want. It doesn’t really bother me.”

And yet Romo appeared mildly perturbed by the line of questioning he faced from reporters who wanted to know why the Cowboys attempted 51 passes and executed only eight called running plays in a victory over Minnesota last Sunday.

“We just want to win,” Romo said. “That’s what the coordinators, coaches want as well.”

But Jason Garrett has also said his team strives for balance. Eleven times Monday the Cowboys coach articulated his desire to reach that goal.
But no matter how much Garrett may yearn for offensive equilibrium, the evidence shows he and his team haven’t come close to achieving it. For the second consecutive season, the Cowboys are throwing the ball roughly 66 percent of the time. A poorly functioning ground attack combined with the organization’s faith in Romo has contributed to skewed run-pass ratio.
