Dallas Cowboys | DeMarco Murray and Jerry Jones

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reminded of a certain NFL Hall of Fame running back, when he looks at rookie running back DeMarco Murray.  On 105.3 The Fan, Jones states that Murray reminds him of Eric Dickerson, who in 1983, ran for 1,808 yards as a rookie with the Los Angeles Rams.

Jones states in the Dallas Morning News, “He kind of has a glide a little like Dickerson used to.  He has a certain smoothness. His glide, he doesn’t lift his feet as much as Dickerson did, but the other thing he reminds me of is he runs with such acceleration and power.  He really throws that weight around. You have some backs, 235-pound backs, 240, they don’t run. They run on their toes and they don’t run with power. He’s 220 pounds, 225 pound back who runs with even more power and runs with more impact than his weight.”

Murray looks like a super star in the last three games, totaling 466 yards, but it is way too premature to compare Murray to Dickerson, who’s one of the greatest runners the game of football has ever seen.

First and foremost I want to wish Mr. Murray a speedy and successful recovery from his injury. Myself and I’m sure many, many fans of his sure enjoy watching him run the ball!

On another note, I was hoping to find out if there would be any more signing opportunities offered by Mr. Murray. I was sure excited and ready to do the meet and greet at Brackets late last Season. I coordinate the blood drives where I work and was going to use an autographed photo for an incentive prize for one lucky donor!

If you have any information on this, please let me know and thanks for your support!
