Felix Jones was supposed to be unleashed
this season. The Dallas Cowboys were going to find all sorts of
ways to showcase his swerving moves and swift feet.
Maybe he still will. He just hasn't yet, and his paltry
production is especially glaring this week because the Cowboys are
facing the big-play running back they could have drafted instead of
him, Tennessee's Chris Johnson.
Last season, while Jones was backing up Marion Barber, Johnson
ran for 2,009 yards and was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year
by The Associated Press.
Johnson again is among the most productive players this season,
a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball. His two
longest gains are 76 and 42 yards, a total of 128 - the same Jones
has, rushing and receiving, through three entire games.
