    Cowboys player says "...we don't see why we shouldn't be in the Super Bowl this year."

    DeMarco Murray: Super Bowl in Cowboys'
    By Dan Hanzus
    Writer

    Jerry Jones acknowledged last week he felt the window is closing both on him and this current version of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Since the 69-year-old owner made his comments, "window" talk has been a recurring theme in Big D. Running back DeMarco Murray is part of a younger guard, and he says the collection of youth and veterans on the roster puts the Cowboys in position to reach a goal they haven't since 1996: the Super Bowl.

    "I think we have a great group of guys," Murray told ESPN Radio in Dallas on Wednesday. "But at the same time, we definitely feel that this year is going to be a great year for us, and we don't see why we shouldn't be in the Super Bowl this year."

    Preseason chatter linking the Cowboys to the Super Bowl is as predictable as a summer heat wave in Arlington, but Murray correctly asserts that this Cowboys roster has talent with plenty of gas still in the tank.

    "We have a great group of young guys and we also have a great group of vets who I think they're still playing like they're 25, 26, 27 years old," he said. "Look at (Jason) Witten, I'm around that guy every day and he's one of the hardest working guys. He's out there beating me in agility drills, I'm trying my hardest over and over to beat him and I can't..."

    Murray himself will be a major factor in Dallas' push to get over the hump this season. He was a borderline sensation in his rookie season before a broken ankle shut him down in Week 14. He sounded encouraged that he won't have to worry about the injury going forward.

    "Feels great. I've been doing stuff for the last couple months without any limitations and I'm feeling great," he said. "Just trying to get back in the groove of things."

    What do you expect him to say?

    I think Murray is going to struggle this year.

    Without Fiametta, perhaps. But Lawrence Vickers helped pave the way for 2 1000 yard backs last year and by all accounts should be better than Fiametta.

    But there was something to be said about the chemistry between Fiametta and Murray, so we'll see.

    But as far as a talent perspective, I don't think so. Murray was one of the better backs in the league last year once he was able to start, and is a more gifted physically than many give him credit for.

    I felt the opposite he was being overrated but I guess that is what the season is for, we shall soon find out or at least start finding out.

    Two 1,000 yard rushers? Where?

    I can't imagine why anyone would expect the Cowboy player to say anything different. What is he supposed to say -- that he doesn't see how they could possibly win the SB???

    I think the Texans are just good at grooming fullbacks (of all the positions?!) Before Vickers it was Vonta Leach. It's unfortunate that Murray is made of glass.

    You checkin mah facts brah?!



    Haha. No for some reason I was under the impression that Ben Tate got
    over 1000 yards last year. He made it to 942 though, so not too far off. Foster
    rushed for 1200+.
