Defendant #1: DeMarco Murray (continued)

The Defense claims, that if not for those various injuries, Murray would have been a 1,000 yard rusher in his first two seasons in the NFL. Furthermore, Murray is unable to block for himself. The lack of offensive line talent (or a fullback) means smaller holes and less running room. Murray is also an underrated pass catcher. This season alone he’s racked up 13 receptions for 88 yards in two games. The defense believes, if given the chance, Murray could prove himself to be a top-tier running back in the NFL. The Defense rests.

    I voted other because I couldn’t decide on which phase of the offense was more at fault for a lack of running game. Murray is a mediocre running back. Even when he has a hole to run through he more often than not runs into the defenders demonstrating a lack of vision. Rather than breaking tackles he often turns and starts back peddling. Murray is a good receiver and should be utilized more as such if he is going to be their feature back. The offensive line is also mediocre and this is well documented. The Jury is still out on Callahan’s play calling but from what I have seen thus far it is not good.

    Tony Romo Calls audible to the pass too often, look at the numbers, 70% pass 30% run. The play clock approaches zero on nearly every play, this is why the Cowboys have so many delay of game, false start and motion penalties. Every time Romo goes to the line all you hear is him killing the play, he changes the play multiple times thus confusing everyone including himself.
