ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has given a stiff-arm to history when people have brought up his name with Hall of Famers such as Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith during his magical start to the season. In Sunday's 31-21 win over the New York Giants, Murray became the first back in NFL history to rush for at least 100 yards in each of the first seven games of a season, finishing with 128 yards on 28 carries and a fourth-quarter touchdown. "I think we did this as a group," Murray said, sprinkling around praise for his offensive line. "So it's hard for me to accept this individually, and I definitely wish those guys were here. But they're a huge part of this, [along with] the tight ends, the receivers, the entire coaching staff. But I definitely give a lot of credit to those guys, and I'm blessed to be mentioned with that, but there's a lot of hard work that needs to be done. It's a long season." ...
Peyton Manning has made the history books again, and his latest achievement is more impressive than you think. While Brett Favre needed 10,164 passes to reach 508 touchdowns, Manning's NFL-record 509th TD pass happened in just 8,659 attempts (his 510th TD occurred on his 8,669th pass). But that's not all. To get a more complete appreciation for Manning's accomplishment, we need a better way to compare and contrast his stats with those from other eras. It's not easy to compare NFL football across the decades. The changing rules, offensive styles and defensive schemes can really define the opportunities for quarterbacks and other players. Can we honestly compare Manning's touchdown totals to those of Sonny Jurgenson or Bob Griese, who were throwing touchdowns before offensive linemen were allowed to hold and defensive backs were prohibited from touching a receiver after five yards? We can try, with a new stat: touchdowns added. And this is where Manning truly...
So ... do you think Derek Jeter is starting to get jealous of Buster Posey? He probably should be. Because if you just substitute wholesome family dude for cool bachelor dude who dates supermodels, Buster Posey is pretty much leading Derek Jeter's life -- from a decade and a half ago. Like Jeter, from almost the minute Posey showed up in the big leagues, his team started treating the World Series as if it were the annual (or at least bi-annual) family trip. Like Jeter, Posey's awards and accolades have been flowing, just about nonstop, since he went out and won a player of the month award in his first month as a regular in the big leagues. Like Jeter, there's a comfortable, easy-going, understated, but intently competitive air about Posey that makes him easy to like but a monster to play against. And like Jeter, let's just put it this way: Buster Posey can move some merchandise. So it's no surprise then that, on the eve of...
