The info came straight from a Cowboys' press release, so they are the "knuckleheads." For your information, you are confusing awards. This is an award given by the NFL. The others are sponsored awards. The information is correct.

I hate it when articles are written and they don't even have accurate info. You'd think these knuckleheads would take the time to research before they write anything. After all, it is their job. The facts are this is the 7th award for Cowboys players this year. Murray received Rookie of the Week and Ground Player of the week in Week 7 and Romo received Air Player of the week in week 10

Yes he is the real deal but we need to keep a complimentary back so that we wont run Mr Murray into the ground and on the IR list

This kid is the real deal!
