    DeMarco Murray may be good[​IMG]
    but he won't replace Marion Barber.

    In the weeks leading up to the draft, I made are regular point that the Cowboys were two solid drafts from being a top-flight contender again. Too much age, too many contracts and too many wasted draft picks had produced too many holes.

    A review of the lineup showed Dallas to be at least seven or eight players short of an air-tight starting 22. Two safeties were needed, a young corner to work in behind the aging and brittle Terence Newman, a young inside backer to work in behind the aging and entering his walk-year Bradie James, a plus defensive end to add interior rush next to Jay Ratliff, a right tackle, a young guard to groom behind Bigg Davis and maybe even a center

    Because every team has 22 air tight starters.

    Can someone tell me what these backups he's talking about have to do with a starting 22?
