Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is going to be missed by his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, according to retired WR Michael Irvin. "I want to upchuck sometimes when I hear the thoughts of others and (they say), 'Oh, you can put any running back behind that offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys," Irvin said. "I say, 'Really? Why did they hand the ball off to DeMarco Murray 392 times? Why didn't they stick anybody back there last year?' Because they already knew."
Fantasy Tip: Irvin is unconvinced that Darren McFadden and company can fill Murray's shoes, but he is probably selling Dallas' talented offensive line a little short. If McFadden can stay healthy, he could produce RB1 numbers. Even with the injury risk, he is worth taking a chance on as a RB2.

Although by that time there was no longer any forensic evidence or surveillance video."

Every time Favre says, 'I want to come back,' it's like everybody on ESPN says, 'Whatever team he says he wants to come to, he makes them automatically a Super Bowl contender.'"

Randy Galloway had an interesting article in today's Fort Worth Star-Telegram regarding Dallas WR Michael Irvin. The highlights of the story included the fact that Irvin is hurting because his feelings have been hurt. Irvin is 33 years old and coming off an awful season. He will count $3.2 million against somebody's 1999 salary cap. Nobody wants Irvin as his trade value is near zero. The Cowboys might still want him, but that is questionable. Owner Jerry Jones, as reported earlier, did attempt to trade Irvin before the April draft. Irvin again let it be known that he wants the ball more and he wants to be rewarded for the many fine years he gave the team, when he, RB Emmitt Smith and QB Troy Aikman combined to lead a team that will always be ranked among the NFL's finest. Galloway feels that the team owes him for being one of the leaders of those teams but on the flip-side, Irvin has also caused his share of troubles for the team. They really owe each other plenty and Galloway feels Jones has some deep thinking to do on the situation.
