9-14: Marcus Murphy on WGR

Recommended Posts

This guy has been fascinating to me this year... Mainly, how he's been in the league for so long and nobody found him, or how he's just now showing how good he is.

He should be our starter if it's a real competition out there. MM has shown he clearly has the better burst out of all the Rb's on this roster.

So does this mean the Bills should tender him at the 2nd round level...

Hoping they get him more involved. With our WR issues would be great to see both in the backfield at the same time. Send Shady in motion out wide a bit. 

 

Said it before, this kid runs with Fred Jackson like intensity. He wants that extra yard.  Hopefully Daboll uses him.

Love Marcus and will make shady expendable this year. Would love a 3rd round pick for shady .

That's his third time on 550. Get the other Murphy on the radio waves...Trent's been dead silent since he came here.

This is only his fourth year in The league... Gillisleee took till his 3rd year to break out and do something 

 

The RB position is loaded in the NFL. Tons of quality backs with not enough room on rosters

Is it just me or does Marcus Murphy seem a little Fred Jackson-esque here in Buffalo?

It depends what you mean by Fred jacksonesque?

 

he hasn’t been here long enough to be a team leader or a fan favorite and he isn’t as big a back as Fred... Fred was 6’2 225

 

but he does have a very good contact balance about him that semi resembles Fred

He's already the best kick returner the Bills have had in a long time.

He is a great change of pace guy for Shady.

 

How can you not like Murphy?

Big Boosie's older brother. You'd think it'd be the other way around, but they are being ironic.

Only his fourth year? That’s an ETERNITY for a NFL RB. According to the NFL Players Association the average career length is 3.3 years.

Yes average for ALL PLAYERS combined. That includes UDFA whose average career is less than 1 full season. That skews some results 

 

most draft picks last at least 2-3 seasons. And the RB position is loaded. Most don’t get a chance early unless they are a high round pick

 

3rd-4th season is the breakout time for a late round RB

I was just thinking more about a personal feeling on the situation. Shady is the incumbent Pro Bowl caliber RB in front him as Lynch was in front of Jackson. Murphy seems to make plays when he gets the ball in his hands. I also have a feeling that Murphy may end up being our featured RB when Shady is gone as Fred was when Lynch was shipped out. Just a hunch, I haven't consulted Dionne Warwick and the Psychic Friends Network or anything.

What Buffalo716 said,  Plus it's not just the years, it's the mileage.  Murphy's is low.

No. That 3.3 years is for Running backs. Not all players.

Ok and its 3.3 including UDFAs

 

hundreds of UDFA RBs that get cut within 1 year. Most drafted RBs stick for a while And are never given their time to shine so are just relegated to the bench

 

very few 6th round running backs are given a true load from the start of there career. They usually earn it over a couple years time 

 

It’s not crazy Murphy is playing his best ball 4 years in
