    yeah we purposely gave Murray the starting job and manufactured all those stories about how good he looked opposed to Felix who was out of shape during camp.

    Everyone raved about how good Murray looked, even referred to him as a man amongst boys by one observer. Murray's main problem now is the run blocking nothing else. He is the superior back

    Of course, none of this means Felix is really the mega-scrub everyone is now convinced he is. But it is hard for him to counter these labels when he barely touches the ball.

    Green Bay just lost Benson for the year. All it takes is for one JJ, I mean owner to panic and overpay.

    Are your serious? Have you not payed attention to the offensive line at all?

    Murray is a terrific player, but do you really expect him to block for himself?

    dude honestly, what would we get for Felix? Why would people want our garbage, regardless if a team lost their starting RB... Trades are hardly made in this league to begin with..

    I would not do it for anything less than a second rounder - otherwise he gives us better value as an emergency back - except nobody is going to give that up for Felix Jones. So that's what he is - our emergency back. I can live with that this season.

    Yea, that is part of it. I have seen a good write-up on it by Adam before.

    Anybody consider what happens if Murray goes down for the year with a freak injury?

    Felix Jones is the RB insurance policy that Dallas has that no other tea does. I'll bet ARizina and Cincinnatti wished they had one.

    In the last few weeks we have seen first hand what happens if you can't run the ball. If we get the OL fixed then having Murray and Felix Jones gives us an advantage no other team does.

    Like I said, if I'm trading away Felix Jones its for nothing less than a second rounder. I don't care if that's too high to deal. It's what it's worth to me to give that insurance up.

    Not speaking for someone else, but I believe that he means that he values Jones as a solid backup insurance policy and would only part with that insurance policy for second round pick value.

    I don't think he believes that we would be offered a second round pick for him.

    Felix had 1 carry for 13 yards with the same blocking...Under the same cicumstanses felix has alway outperformed Murray...The only thing that makes Murray better is his durabillity even that is starting to be questionable

    Yes, and I said that too. Seems I was told to wake up by someone lulling himself in a dead sleep. Then again, these are message boards; we get all levels of reading comprehension here.
