The Runway: Five Questions With Blogging the Boys, Part 5

My final question for Dave Halprin of Blogging The Boys asks for a sleeper who could leave us all grumbling after the game.

People know the big stars on the Cowboys. Give me a player most people do not know you think will make a positive impact for Dallas.

Rookie DeMarco Murray at running back is someone to keep an eye on. He was hurt most of the preseason, but when he did play at the end, I really liked the way he ran the ball, and caught passes. Felix Jones will start, but Murray will probably get some time, more as the season rolls on, and he looks like he has ability. He could be a weapon.

On defense, I'm interested to see if reserve OLB Victor Butler will step up his game. He's been on the team for a few years with limited playing time, but always seems to make plays on the quarterback when he gets in. With Rob Ryan, I think Butler will see more time, especially rushing the passer, and he might turn into a player.

Murray was a playmaker at Oklahoma. I am concered about the Dallas screen game, and he could be a weapon there.

Thanks again to Dave of Blogging The Boys for taking the time to answer questions.
