DeMarco Murray Is Not Touching Enough Balls, Voices His Displeasure
Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is an unhappy man and wants everyone to know it. Sunday, Murray had his biggest game in an Eagles uniform…36 yards on 8 carries. He had 1 carry for 30 yards, 7 carries for 6 yards. Clearly this man needs to be fed the ball more, who else is going to get these negative yards like DeMarco Murray with Cable?
DeMarco Murray rushing at this point last year: 99 carries, 534 yards, 5 TDs.
DeMarco Murray rushing now: 29 carries, 47 yards, 1 TD.

After Sunday’s loss to the Redskins, Murray had something to say:
“No, I’m not,” Murray said. “I don’t think I am, but it’s just how the plays have been called.”
“I love this offense. I love playing with these guys and it’s just how it is,” Murray said. “I knew what I was coming in here to do. I knew this offense, a lot of guys touch the ball. That’s how they make a lot of plays.”
“I knew I was going to be the lead guy,” Murray said. “I knew [Darren] Sproles and [Ryan] Mathews, two great guys. I knew this offense, a lot of guys touch the ball.” When asked will he take his concerns to the coaching staff, “I don’t need to go to anyone,” Murray said. “It is what it is.”
