I talked earlier about how the Eagles/Cowboys rivalry doesn’t seem to – at times – mean as much to the players anymore. One player it should definitely mean something to is DeMarco Murray, who is not only facing the Eagles’ biggest rival but his former team. So, does he feel a certain way about it?
“Not at all. Not from my end, at least. This is a true business. I’m very emotionless when it comes to a lot of things, especially the business side. I understand the business aspect of the NFL. It’s all about finding guys who are right for your system. I feel like I’m here and this is the best place for me. This is where I want to be and this is the team that wanted me …
This is just another opponent. I’m not looking at the guys or the coaches. This is another opponent that we’re facing. It’s a huge challenge. I’m excited for the opportunity to go out there and play in front of our fans.”
Not an itch. Not an emotion. Not a drive. Not even an “it’ll feel weird.” DeMarco Murray is dead inside.
