We’ll forgive Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray for being a little skeptical about the team’s stated goal to run the ball more often in 2014.
Murray had his best season to date last year, going for over the 1,000-yard mark for the first time, while the Cowboys finished 31st in the league in terms of rushing attempts per game. Only the Atlanta Falcons ran less than the Cowboys.
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” Murray said, via the team’s website. “We’ll find out.”
Enter Scott Linehan. The former Lions offensive coordinator said shortly after he arrived in Dallas, to take over as the playcaller and passing game coordinator, that he planned on leaning on the 2013 Pro Bowler Murray. Still, Murray will believe it when he sees it.
“I think you can say that when the head guys say that, but like I said, you’ve got to do it,” Murray said. “You can talk till you’re blue in the face, but you’ve got to do it and see where the games are. Obviously if we’re down a little bit, we’re not going to run the ball, and vice versa. It all depends on where the game is going.”
