DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – I want … no, I need, the Dallas Cowboys to win more games this year.
I mean, don’t we all?
After all, the Cowboys haven’t won more than eight regular-season games since 2009 (yes, we are now approaching five years). But after all-time defensive woes last season combined with Dallas losing its best three defensive players from 2013 (Jason Hatcher, DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee), I understand hopes to surpass eight wins in 2014 may not be high.
Enter running back DeMarco Murray.
Surely most Cowboys’ fans have heard the statistic that Dallas is 11-0 in games where Murray carries the ball 20 times or more.
The last time I threw that number out, my co-host, Cory, challenged that number and asked if the Cowboys were winning because Murray got more carries or did Murray simply get more carries to salt away a game they were already dominating.
