    I would have to see this analysis over a much larger sample size. Here, just a couple games go the other way and it tells a different story.

    Its not the point.

    This franchise is searching for a good Rb since Emmit left for Arizona. Now they found someone who is able to run straight without stumbling over his own feet and everybody is overhyping like they found AP the 2nd.

    Point is to stay realistic. And fact is Murray is a good back but right now nothing special.

    All these observations, along with the injury issues, is why he lasted until we selected him. The "mystery" is solved.

    I am not a big fan of Randle's but I am glad we took him. He provides very much the same kind of game as Murray does and makes it so it is not crucial we worry about re-signing him, if at all.

    If you're looking for AP, draft an AP like RB. We're getting amazing value for a third round draft pick.

    Did you understand what my post was about ? I dont think so.

    I guess you feel offended because you are an Murray lover. Which you shouldn't because i had no intension to say something negative about him. And in fact i did not.

    But if it makes you feel better i can speak about him like all the others do: he was, is and will be the greatest RB the world will ever witness. Feeling better now ?

    True, certainly a bit more value than our recent third round picks Jason Williams, Robert Brewster, and James Marten.

    Honestly, I still think he was out of gas..looks much better for a young player to say he made a mental mistake than to state he couldn't finish the run.. No way any NFL running back would cut it inside with the whole field in front of him. He knew he couldn't outrun them and just delivered contact first..He also delivered one heck of a blow and had to completely change direction, Great run but he was clearly worn out at the end.

    Who are these people calling him special?

    Who are these mythical people that everyone keeps referencing?

    They aren't in this thread.

    They haven't been posting recently.

    You're arguing against a point that hasn't been made. Certainly not by the majority.

    Me either and I've felt that way for awhile now MW....the kid is raw but in fairness, the line he's run behind has been SO dang bad I haven't had the heart to rip into him too much. He still has a big upside IMO though.....

    I really want to see him get a full games work in behind this zone blocking scheme

    I think he should pass Gore, Chris Johnson, and MJD this year. I think he's already better than Wilson. I also think Rice will really fall off this year (just a hunch) so in my estimation he'll be around 10th after this year.

    I agree somewhat, he needs to show better vision...

    Did you notice how he stopped running in a straight line and turned into the defenders. That's what TD means by "running to darkness"

    Uh, no. Gore and MJD are extremely underrated and Chris Johnson has rushed for 2k yards, Murray hasn't come close to that and don't think he ever will. Who is Wilson?

    I can't wait for the season to start to actually have something legit to talk about...people want to complain for the sake of complaining

    * "Romo can't win win in the playoffs, remember when he fumbled the hold? see? I told you!"
    * "Murray is not good, he only ran for 48 yards on one play"
    * "Why can't we build from the trenches out? I would rather not have all of the skill and defensive players that we have, I want more OL and DL (oh wait, we did draft two OL in the 1st in the last 3 season - screw it, I want to complain)"
