For pretty understandable reasons, DeMarco Murray doesn’t want to talk about last season, when the Dallas Cowboys finished 31st in rushing--and with the lowest rushing total since the NFL moved to a 16-game schedule.
“Last year is last year,” Murray said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Me personally, I’m not focused on last year. Whatever it was, that’s in the back of my mind. I’m looking forward, looking to get things kicked off right here.”
Murray does insist that this year will be different.
Just what’s different?
Murray won’t say, at least not in any specific terms. But the run game-minded Bill Callahan probably has something to do with it.
“You can say this and that, but it’s all a mindset for us,” Murray said. “I think it comes to Coach Callahan and the mindset he brings when he’s calling plays, when he’s talking to us, just that fire he has. I think it’s feeding off the offensive line and us--me, myself and the offensive linemen, we have to make sure we work together day in and day out and get the little things right to make sure the big plays are there.”
