well i am not sure about the '...hand the ball off occasionally..' bit!
unless you have a real threat in the ground game, your passing will be effected.
Romo is still not as good as payton is at the colts, i think you need both Jones and Barber to keep the ground game 'true'.
Can barber take 25-30 hand offs week in, week out? I am not sure. i think the rest he gets when Jones comes on, gives him the edge when he sees play time
