Last season Rookie Running Back DeMarco Murray took the NFL world by storm after his impressive showings throughout the year. Some would say that he could be in the upper echelon of backs heading into this season. Some also say that he could be in the upper echelon of the upper echelon and they’ve been comparing him to one of the best to ever do it.
“There are those in the Cowboys’ organization who believe Murray has a chance to be one of the great ones, like (Emmitt) Smith and Tony Dorsett,” Clarence E. Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes.
Murray ended last season with 164 carries for 894 yards while appearing in just 13 games before missing time due to a fractured ankle. He says that he is ready and “Just playing football,” Murray said. “I’m just trying to set the tempo right now.”
He’s going to need a lot of tempo to get to the status of Emmitt Smith, but nothing is holding him back and he just wants to be out there doing his thing.
