Jerry Jones: DeMarco Murray Has Eric Dickerson's Glide

Jerry got a little excited on the radio this morning, as he is wont to do. This time it was over DeMarco Murray, his rookie back who has piled up 466 yards in his last three games and is averaging 6.7 yards for his 80 pro carries.

He kind of has a glide a little like [Eric] Dickerson. 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's running with such acceleration and power.

Murray may find running even easier in the upcoming weeks. Seattle led the NFL in yards per carry against going into last week. They are now third. Buffalo is 23rd and will be without DT Kyle Williams. Washington is 20th and the Giants are 25th. Miami and Arizona the top run defenses remaining on the Cowboys' schedule, at 6th and 8th in YPC against.
