Dec 15, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (29) celebrates a touchdown in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers at AT

DeMarco Murray

The Cowboys workhorse running back was up to his old tricks again this past season. He had spells of production at an All-Pro level, paired with games where he was non-existent. It’s hard to rely on a back that has a propensity for injury (Murray missed two games in 2013). But, at the same time, it’s hard to ignore the numbers he put up last season (217 carries, 1,124 yards, 9 touchdowns). Do you continue to run with Murray until he can’t go anymore, or does he need a back to spell him that will ultimately cut his carries in half?

    No they should not for the simple reason of their last hiring of linehan. They will continue to be a pass happy offense. I personally would rather them take an offensive lineman with that 4th or 5th that they would use for a rb.

    Sure! Take two. And while you’re busy wasting draft choices, get a couple more TE’s too. Forget both sides of the line or the defensive secondary. Nobody pays any attention to them anyway.

      what are you going to say if murray gets injured next year? we can definitely use DAT in later rounds or tre mason a bruising back who reminds of me of ray rice. i still prefer dt/de/cb-s/lb combo followed by qb and then more dt/s/wr run.
