Despite everyone involved claiming everything is good, DeMarco Murray is not happy about his usage rate on the Philadelphia Eagles, and went to owner Jeffrey Lurie to complain about both Chip Kelly and running backs coach Duce Staley.
“As for his talk with Jeffrey Lurie, my understanding is he didn’t approach Chip Kelly for the same talk because he didn’t think Chip was as approachable … which, of course, represents a bigger problem. Murray has not made a ton of friends in the Eagles’ locker room, this rubs some people the wrong way, especially this week. So it’s worth considering what role he will have going forward.”
Murray has the league’s fourth-worst yards per attempt this season (3.5), and doesn’t fit Kelly’s scheme at all. This will end badly.
