Callahan not unhappy with Murray, expects him to get better and wants to give him more touches

DeMarco Murray is averaging 3.5 yards in the two games this season, with a long run of 13 yards in the opener. Last week, his longest run was 6 yards.

But offensive coordinator Bill Callahan is not displeased.

Asked if Murray has left yards on the field in the first two games, Callahan said, “No. I think he’s done a terrific job. He’ll continue to get better as we move forward. We just have to give him more touches. He’s a good back. He’s physical, and he has good eyes and good vision. He can make you miss.”

Callahan shrugged off a revisit of the 2011 game when Murray ran for 253 yards against the Rams.

“It was a different team,” he said.

Callahan was asked if there was something about the runs in that game that were successful for Murray.

“It’s all different,” he said. “We’ve talked to him about what he likes and what he wants to do, and that’s communicated.”

So DO IT! Give him the ball more! What is the problem; it's week 3 and he got less carries and targets last week than he did in week 1. Don't yap about it, DO IT!

Stop asking these players what they like to do and TELL them what they HAVE to do.

Football is not a democracy.
