DeMarco Murray came alive in his rookie season in 2011. Murray put up 236 yards in his breakout performance (vs. St. Louis).
It’s not four touchdowns in a single game, but Al Bundy would be proud of the display Murray put on last year.
Sadly, Murray went down with injury and Felix Jones handled the run-game responsibilities in typical mediocre fashion.
Jones is coming off shoulder surgery. However, he showed up to camp out of shape, and is reportedly fatter than an explosive running back should be.
The Cowboys managed just five rushing touchdowns in 2011.
Against the San Diego Chargers, a new running back stamped his place in history as the first Cowboy to score a touchdown in the 2012 season. Jamize Olawale, a former wide receiver out of the University of North Texas, deserves a spot on the Cowboys' roster at running back.
Olawale is big. And not in a ‘Felix The Fat’ kind of way. Standing, 6’1”, and 238 pounds, Olawale could be a beast at the position.
