The transfer of running back DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles broke the hearts of millions of fans and followers of the Dallas Cowboys. As his former NFL team struggle to cope with the loss of their star athlete, it was initially thought that DeMarco Murray adjusted well to the Philadelphia Eagles locker room. It appears, however, that the warm welcome of Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow to the former Dallas Cowboys running back, albeit heartwarming, still left DeMarco Murray thinking of the good old days with his former teammates.

In an interview with a 10-year-old girl, named Isabella, DeMarco Murray appeared to have forgotten that he no longer plays with the Dallas Cowboys. Asked about his favorite "Sunday Night Football" memory, the former Dallas Cowboys running back did not think twice in sharing that it was the time he and his former teammates defeated the Philadelphia Eagles. Needless to say, the response made the entire interview awkward as the Dallas Cowboys star struggled to make things right but failed to do so.

The interviewer asked, according to Bleeding Green Nation, "What's your favorite moment from playing on Sunday Night?" DeMarco Murray responded, "I think last year when we beat the Eagles to ... um ... (nervous laughter) ... (pats Eagles jersey he's wearing) ... we beat the Eagles to go the playoffs, so ... (more nervous laughter)."

It could be recalled that DeMarco Murray left the Dallas Cowboys following the refusal of the NFL team to give him the raise he felt he truly deserved. With his skills and presence in the NFL community, the departure of DeMarco Murray opened many doors for the running back as numerous teams came rushing to sign him with them. Among the teams was the Philadelphia Eagles, the team touted to be the greatest opponent of the Dallas Cowboys in their division. Following intense negotiations, DeMarco Murray became the proud owner of a Philadelphia Eagles jersey and is now one of the top players in the NFL team.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles are currently taking measures to beat the roster deadline for this current NFL season. In an effort to cut down and comply with the 75-man roster limit set this week, the Philadelphia Eagles made three moves today, according to ESPN. The first one was to release Kevin Monangai, a running back, from the roster. The second was to waive linebacker Emmanuel Acho, who walked out of the Philadelphia Eagles locker room with an injury settlement. The third move that the Philadelphia Eagles made had been to move JaCorey Shepherd to the injured reserve list as the NFL star will be missing the entire 2015 NFL regular season following an ACL injury incurred during practice.
