DeMarco Murray smiled and had to admit it.
Yes, he could have scored on that 48-yard run against the Giants last week. And should have scored easy.
“Just looking at the film, I could have just probably walked in the end zone,” he said, smiling about the play as he talked to reporters Monday at Valley Ranch. “I definitely made a mistake.”
But he had a little bit of an explanation. Those defenders running with him just seemed so ... so ...
“I just thought they were so far out in front of me that I wasn’t going to be able to outrun them,” he said. “But things happen. Hopefully it doesn’t happen to me. I messed up on that one.”
Could it have been he got a little winded after wiggling his way out of trouble in the backfield?
“You can say that,” he said, again smiling. “Making a few moves in the backfield. It was a long run.”
So whose tackle was the toughest to break?
“Probably from Vickers,” he said. “Vickers almost tackled me. He had his arms around me. That was a pretty fun play.”
