Hall of Fame wide receiver and Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin is actually pretty optimistic that the team is capable of getting the run game on track, but he isn’t sugarcoating his feelings on what we’ve already seen out of that particular part of the offense.
“People got on me pretty hard all offseason when I was talking about that, that you can't just stick anybody back there. It doesn’t work that way. I wish it did,” Irvin told ESPN Radio San Antonio, via the Dallas Morning News. “I know they're gonna give Christine Michael some run this week. That's the kicker. If this kid can get out and do some great running and get that run game back on track and you start talking about Dez coming back. Then you start looking like something. Hopefully, this week it'll get going. Ask Randle, do you see things a little differently now than you did before as you talk about DeMarco Murray? It ain't as easy as you think.”
Of course, this offseason, Joseph Randle told the press that DeMarco Murray had left “a lot of meat on the bone” last season, as he was in the process of breaking the franchise’s single-season rushing record.
Now, it’s only fair to ask, has Randle left much meat on the bone?
“All that meat on the bone,” Irvin said. “We could all get full on it right now. We could end world hunger right now.”
