Dallas Cowboys are arguably having their most impressive campaign this century, with Dallas not only sitting on a 7-3 record, but going about their business in a dominant and classy manner.
The Cowboys have been outstanding from week two onwards. After a defeat in the NFL opener against the 49ers, Dallas have been dominant ever since and they look a sure bet for the NFL playoffs.
Star running back DeMarco Murray has been the most important reason for Dallas's success this season. He has been the key cog in the Cowboys machine this season with well over 1,200 yards already with still six games to go.

But some have questioned for the past month whether or not DeMarco Murray can keep up his current workload and sustain his dominance on the field through deep into the playoffs. Some believe he will burn out before the Cowboys can even get anywhere close to getting success, but Murray doesn't share that thought. And he had these confident and arrogant words for those naysayers when he spoke to the media earlier this week.
"I'm ready [to carry Cowboys], Murray said this week, NFL.com reported. "Like I've said before, whatever they ask me to do I'm going to do it times 10. It's going to be an exciting next couple of weeks for us."

DeMarco Murray has carried the ball 244 times this season through ten games. That is an average of 24.4 carries a game, which puts him a whole 49 carries ahead of his next rival on the season, who is LeSean McCoy.
In essence, Murray has pretty much played just over two games more in terms of production and workload than any other back in the NFL.
The worry with Murray's workload is one that fans should be thinking about, but with DeMarco showing this much confidence, Cowboys fans should put their faith in the powerful back to etch his name into history alongside Dallas great tailback Emmitt Smith. Murray is really that good, and so is the Dallas offensive line.
