The Seattle game was just an overall failure from every aspect. Jason Garrett says he likes to find good in losses and bad in wins, like most coaches, but I am at a loss for what he would find here. As good as they were in New York, they gave most of it back to the field in Week 2.
But, when Witten and Dez Bryant are playing so poorly, and Romo is under duress, I just have a hard time understanding why Murray wasn't part of every single possession until the game was out of reach. He seemed to be a perfect remedy for these out of balance games, but on Sunday, his performance was rather limited.
Back to the drawing board for Tampa Bay.
