DeMarco Murray Ties Jim Brown Record

Cowboys have a weak division, a premier offensive line, and a solid running back. As long as Garrett or whoever is calling the plays in Dallas recognizes that the Cowboys should host a playoff game.

Somehow it's hard to imagine the customary December games where Romo heaves the ball 40 plus times with 3 ints while Murray only gets 6 touches.

Spending top dollar on your roster and having Mattingly as a manager makes no sense at all.

Saw the Cowboys were up 24-0 and figured I'd better tune in to watch them fold and lose. To my surprise they actually ran the ball on a few plays when they had the lead.

Even more amazing was the response of the Dallas crowd to running plays. On the possession following the Saints 2nd touchdown putting them within reach the Cowboys handed the ball to Murray on 1st down. Murray and the Cowboys offensive line shredded the Saints defense for a 6 yard gain as they had been doing all game ... and a hush comes over the home crowd.


Either it was complete astonishment on how to respond to a dominating running attack since it has been so long that the Cowboys actually chose to use their strength or the Cowboys fans find it more exciting watching Romo chuck the ball all over and throw a few quick picks to cough up the lead.

After everything I just posted, Derek Jeter went ahead and wrote his storybook ending tonight.

Jeter isn't going to be remembered for a walk off single in a season where his presence prevented his team from securing a playoff berth, but a nice ending non the less. He will be remembered for clutch performances when the competition was most intense.

I guess this clears the way for ARod to play shortstop for the next 3 seasons.

The gospel according to Ray.

Give me a break already. If Ray Lewis needs face time to stroke his ego he ought to just be himself because he isn't fooling anyone.

Nobody buys the Reverend Ray act, including himself.

I see an environment that gives far more attention to negative stories about athletes than positive ones

Dead on.

The lack of true high profile role models in sports over the last few decades is alarming. Amen for athletes like Russell Wilson who realize how fortunate they are and understand the importance of being a role model to our youth.

Winston, Peterson, Rice, and all the rest feel their only responsibility is on the field and perhaps sporting nice tattoos and "bigger than you" diamond jewelry. Just like young stars before them did.
