Leonard Davis: I agree with Igor Olshansky


IRVING, Texas -- Defensive end Igor Olshansky’s statement that the offense needed to start running the ball and stop committing turnovers certainly didn’t ruffle right guard Leonard Davis’ feathers.

“Shoot, I agreed with that way back,” Davis said. “It is what it is. I can’t get mad at him for saying that. Maybe I probably wouldn’t have said it all like that, been on the radio saying that, but I guess that’s just him.”

“But it’s the truth. It’s the truth. I agree with him. We’ve turned the ball over, we haven’t run the ball well, we’ve had a lot of penalties. I mean, it’s all the obvious things. For him to say that, just that statement, I mean, I agree with it.”

Davis said his primary concern is running the ball more efficiently. The Cowboys’ 31st-ranked rushing attack averages only 3.7 yards per carry. They averaged only 2.3 yards per carry in last week’s loss to Jacksonville.

If the Cowboys can run more efficiently, they’ll probably run more often.

“But if you think about it, in all these games, we’ve been behind, too,” Davis said. “Hey, that plays a role. That factors into it.”

In other words, if the defense does its job better, the Cowboys might run the ball more often. But Davis isn’t as blunt as Olshansky, so he didn’t put it so harshly.
