Mind-boggling in the same way it's confusing when we ignore Santa and Letters from Hogwarts?
I think your nerd is showing
Ignore those letters at your own risk
And one could argue that if Zeke makes the offense that much better, then maybe he fills enough of a void in case Romo goes down that they could "hold down the fort".
And please don't bring up DMC. People say look at the yards he put up last year but let me say this. He did not scare anyone. He was not moving the pile on 3rd and 2. As a matter of fact, they did even try to give it to him in those short yardage situations. I believe Zeke will bring that fear and power back to our run game.
I don't know how good Zeke will be, though I do absolutely feel that he's a upgrade over the running game we've got, but one thing that people seem to forget about when it comes to passing good....if you run the ball good, and effectively, you can also pass the ball good, and effectively.
He will help make the offense better, overall. That includes the passing game.
Answer? No that is your problem. You are looking for some kind of immediate answer. Elliot is a hell of a player, but it underlines the problems with the brass in Dallas. The same problem that you seem to suffer from. Short term gain itis. As if making the playoffs and getting lucky is any way to build a franchise.
The Romo era is toast. The ONLY way we could have possibly gotten lucky and won here in Dallas while Romo was still the guy was to fix the defense in the next two off seasons and then grab a great RB at some point. And as you mentioned, the defensive players take longer to kick in. Unless we get 2 or 3 starters from this draft on defense, I dont see it happening. But you probably dont understand any of that.
I hate DMC.
Hold down the fort? That doesnt interest me. This team is reliant on Romo and the offense. That needs to change in Dallas. As Romo is all but toast and we have no stud young QB grooming in Dallas. The only way you do that is to fix the D. The ONLY way you fix the D is by drafting stud defensive players. Not by drafting more offensive players.
Please name the young stud QBs in grooming in the NFL.
Laugh all you want doesn't change the facts
That's funny that does not interest you because that is the same exact phrase I quoted you on!
No problem, show me the quote.
Like I said, holding down the fort does not interest me. That conversation was in reference to what a good defense could do if Romo got injured. Nothing to do with settling for "holding down the fort"
Dallas needs that Running back fear !!!!!
