DeMarco Murray takes “full responsibility” for Philly fallout

Titans running back DeMarco Murray got what he wanted — a ticket out of Philly. But he’s taking the high road when asked about what went wrong there.

Things didn’t work out,” Murray said during a Thursday appearance on 102.5 The Game in Nashville, via Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. “I look in the mirror and don’t blame anyone. I take full responsibility of it. I just try to move on and work hard and try to make the best of the opportunity I’m given.”

Murray wouldn’t say there was a problem with the relationship. Instead, Murray said things simply didn’t work out.

“I wouldn’t say I was in the wrong relationship at all,” Murray said. “They have a great team there, great owner in Jeffrey [Lurie]. Howie [Roseman] and Jeff, they do a great job. They know what they want in the team, personnel wise,” Murray said. “It was just a relationship that didn’t work, for whatever reason. I’m not going to go into the details of that. I have a really good relationship with those guys.”

In mentioning “those guys,” Murray didn’t mention former coach Chip Kelly, the one guy with whom Murray reportedly had the most problems.

Still, with Murray getting a fresh start and a revised deal in Tennessee, he gains nothing by saying negative things about anyone in Philly. Both sides realized it made sense to move on — and Murray is wise to not look back.

  1. These guys are making millions playing football. You’d have to be a sick person to hold a grudge. Things might not have worked out perfectly in Philly, but their checks didn’t bounce.

  2. Cowboys were smart to let him walk….they used him up…he will never be the same back….too many guys before him with that kind of carries that fizzled out proves it….

  3. He is very professional when standing behind microphones and cameras, but when there aren’t any around he is one hell of an “anonymous source” for reporters. But I guess that’s the P.R. game these days. Good luck to him.

  4. Amazing that when the guy has a camera in his face he’s a professional. Take the camera away and he’s a whiny sellout that throws everyone under the bus and can’t figure out why his peers can’t stand him.

  5. “Takes the high road”. What a joke.

    Dude is saying all the right things to the cameras…. just like he did in Philly.

    Meanwhile he is probably already feeding Tennessee fringe media stories about Mariota.

    hard to tell who is dumber really… Murray or the media idiots/parrots who fall for for what he says.

    =====================================

    They didn’t use him up. He didn’t take a beating with them, he had an o-line that could open up a hole for a bus, he wasn’t taking hard hits.

  7. Two bit media town in Nashville makes it hard to work them against each other and too many owners to know whose back door to go through. Once the season starts Murray will have to perform…or learn to add subtlety to his bag of tricks once the season starts

    Don’t agree with this at all. Yes, he had almost 400 carries in 2014. In his other 4 seasons he’s had 164, 161, 217, & 193 carries. For a 28 year old RB, he should have plenty of gas left in the tank.

    You couldn’t be more wrong. He played RB fearlessly and picked up blitzes like he was Larry Allen. The guy was an absolute beast that took and delivered a lot of hits.

    He runs like Frankenstein, stiff and slow. Howie stiffed the fins.
