No Guts, No Glory:
Dallas Cowboys running back Demarco Murray’s rookie season turned many heads in Dallas and around the league. Everyone knew that he was an excellent college running back coming out of Oklahoma, but no one saw Murray rushing for almost 900 yards in just 13 games.

Everyone who has been to Cowboys training camp has said the same thing: “Dez Bryant is the best player in camp.” After the incident with his mom it has been nothing but good vibes from Dez.
