Brian Billick: DeMarco Murray Key For Cowboys Against The Ravens

The Dallas Cowboys will face the Baltimore Ravens at home this Sunday. And former Baltimore head coach Brian Billick believes Dallas running back DeMarco Murray is the key to the 2-2 Cowboys having a chance against the 4-1 Ravens, who are undefeated at home this season (3-0).

Here’s what Billick had to say in his latest “Coach Speak” video:

“Obviously the key is the Dallas Cowboys when they run the ball well, they do well. They’ve gotta get DeMarco Murray cranked up. They can look at the film of obviously the Kansas City game, where Kansas City ran off 214 yards of rushing offense in a very tightly contested game. More tightly then people thought going in.”

    A good running game does wonders for a team.

    Why should only Murray be reiled upon on his own? The Two Garrett frauds – Jason & Johnny – have several RBs to insert into the game such as Tanner & Dunbar. But watch what these two frauds actually do. it will be a dozen or so stuffed go nowhere carries for Murray for about 30 yds – then nothing more. The two frauds need only to look at Belichick and what he does. #38 Bolden [undrafted rookie] has carried the football for over 300 yds this season giving Brady excellent relief and the team excellent production. The two coaching frauds at Dallas do not know HOW TO COACH OR HOW TO GAMEPLAN. Both are pure DUDS that belong at Henson Park. No surprise packages in the so called “offense.” Watch they will use Bryant, Witten, Austin & Ogletree. No Tanner, No Dunbar & No Hanna or even Beasley. The hoons from Baltimore already know the Two Garrett’s offense and they will eat it up again. The ROUTES, PLAY CALLS & PLAYERS UTILISED ARE ALREADY KNOWN BY REED LEWIS & CO. Face it, the Two Garretts are FRAUDS and are as weak as water!!!

      It occurred to me that Garret was a backup on the Cowboys when they had Emmitt, and he cannot see that a dependable running game is needed for a balanced offense. He had front row seats to one of the best running offenses in nfl history and he can’t figure out how to draft run blocking lineman. He should of known with a runner like Murray, you need a good line.

    If the boys can be sucessfull running against the Raven they win the division. I dont see anything changing for the boys. JJ has made it very clear, he is not committed to getting better OL. JJ want you to believe thie OL is an upgrade from last year. IT not. Our Offensive line has to be one of the worst in the NFL. i dont care about the ranking they gives us, what matter we are 2-2, 30th in running and 31 in scoring, and we are on the road 4 out of the next 5 games in the meat of our schedule. JJ has already blew it for me when it come to the OL, he had 2 week to repair it and did nothing but get a couple of CB and RB. I saw this game as a game Tony Romo get knock out for the season. Boy I hope I am wrong. I still believe we have a chance with a healthy Romo and Murray, as long as they run broken play in the Baltimore game. JG play calling is terrible. The last time we played them Ray Lewis said the Cowboys offense is so transparent. That why I mention the broken play, I dont have faith in JG as the HC or OC.
