The Dallas Cowboys & Innovative Play-Calling

Dallas was known for its running game in 2014, but a huge part of their success was changing up from a power running game to a spread offense when needed.

Can DeMarco Murray Stay Healthy and Productive for the Eagles?

DeMarco Murray, the reigning leading rusher, Offensive Player of the Year, Judas to Cowboys fans. And an injury waiting to happen? The Eagles made wave after wave in free agency, and while the off-season, and with it the implementation of Chip Kelly’s vision for the team, is far from over, there is one common thread that all the major moves the Eagles have made have: an injury history, in particular a soft tissue injury.
