    There was a fair amount of hullaballoo made since DeMarco Murray emerged to run for 601 yards over the past four games (while Felix Jones sat out with a high ankle sprain) over whether Murray would be named the starter over Jones, who started the season as the starter. Jerry Jones said this week that Murray would start over Jones, but according to the rookie out of Oklahoma, it doesn’t really matter who starts.

    Murray, in a recent interview with ESPN Radio Las Vegas (his hometown), was specifically asked if the starting title means anything in this era of running backs-by-committee.

    "It really doesn't to be honest,” Murray said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think Coach Skin and Coach Pete do a great job rotating us in, who ever is hot at that time, I'm sure they'll go with that guy. But me and Felix have a great relationship, so there definitely won't be any animosity between us.

    “But it really doesn't matter who starts the game, it's all about just working hard throughout the game and getting the W at the end of the day.”
