    Well CJ Anderson carried the Rams a large part of the way and the Eagles did it with Foles and Ajayi.

    It’s just not a difference making position anymore. 1993 was a long time ago, and the game has changed a lot. This year’s championship showed what it’s all about now. You run to get into favorable passing situations. Passing effectively and stopping the pass wins championships.

    Patriots had Belli and Brady as well. Zeke is also proving hes by far the best most consistent and healthy back in the league. Team runs through him

    Didnt we had the conversation over and over again?

    You dont draft RBs that high. All other problems we have to handle now are the reasons why you don't.

    People dont say such things because they hate players. There are good reasons to it.

    Shouldve traded dak too if they're not going to sign him this offseason. Jaylon and dlaws contracts look bad to right now.

    Zeke can convince me if he shows up cut and REGAINS his quickness and dedication we made the right decision. . However if we could have traded I would have done it because he was a shadow of his rookie season last year.

    Have you actually watched Darius Jackson? I really wanted to him to work out as a speed threat but he is absolutely horrible at trying to anticipate holes or get around the edge. For all that supposed speed, it really doesn't translate to the game.

    If Zeke only "ran" like this sentence.

    Sorry, timb2; these days you gotta have a laugh every now and then.

    The Cowboys don’t make trades like that, plus Jerry has a track record of holding on to players he likes. Which is why he is such a poor GM. He allows his personal relationships with the players to govern the football teams future

    Zekes first couple of years was great and then he let his fame get to his head got into trouble and got banned. I think Zeke reached his peak already unless he gets humbled and turns it back up a few notches. But we would have to get a Hershel type trade to let him go.

    They are not crying for cap space.

    So that's the reason why Byron Jones is not here in Dallas

    Why would the Ravens, who early in FA signed Ingram want EE? Why wouldn't the Bucs sign Brady for 25m per season when that is a discount for a franchise QB?

    well that’s not as impressive a list to me as you I guess; Dak is average, who knows what Gregory is these days, Sean Lee is 57 and injury prone, LVE is already having neck problems and missed time, Jaylon Smith is a non-contact linebacker who plays soft and prefers open field tackles to preserve his product, Tyron’s back is giving out more often, and Dix is an upgrade but an older one. That’s seven players who are not that great or are injury prone and old.

    I would have drafted Zeke, used him for three years, then traded him. We must remember Zeke was drafted to be paired with Romo. Zeke was exactly what Romo and Dallas needed at that time.

    I doubt any other player taken 4th could have helped the team as much as zeke. Sadly our hc failed us again. Zeke will show his value more than ever this year under Mac's offense. Jmo

    Cap space has nothing to do with Byron not being in Dallas. The front office just didn’t value him at $16.5 million AAV.

    1st off they arent crying for cap space, maybe they shouldnt have paid a WR 20mil that showed for 8 games? maybe they should cut Crawford, we need 2 kickers? Doesnt look caps and issue right now, you are misinformed.., the biggest issue is TFred sudden retirement that put 11mil in dead cap on us without warning.... the Fo was supposed to see that coming a year ago?

    Zekes still one of the best players in the league and on this team!

    maybe pay dak less, he wants Elite money ranked 10-12
    the issue with that cap are NOT Zeke he signed a very team friendly deal and still played well.. get past it haters..hes here dont livbe in the past with coulda shoulda its wasted energy!
