    This is sad because Zeke use to break runs. Now it looks like he left a lot of meat on the bone or would run out of bounds. The year before he would break runs. He only had 4 runs over 20 this year and zero over 40.

    Crazy is Derrick Henry is one of those freaks of nature guys. He is 6'3 250 lbs. And has pretty good speed. 3 runs over 40 yards this year.He has 7 runs over 40 in his 4 year career. And he has a 99 yard run :eek:..


    I hope zeke gets back to rookie year zeke.

    Actually, it does matter. Analytics aren't the end-all-be-all some make them out to be, but to completely laugh them off is equally ridiculous.

    They are one factor to consider when making in-game decisions. Obviously, knowing your personnel is another.

    Watched the game. Henry also had some nice at the line of scrimmage holes to get through. Zeke had those in his first year, not so much now with the D's knowing the cowboys
    run patterns.... A trait of Garetts , I'll beat you man on man dream, that finally is over.

    Interesting to listen to the commentators in the games , or later on Sirius NFL describe how motion was clearing space for receivers, how Vrabel devised a game plan to deal with the Ravens using analytics, and then remember Garretts stubborn " I don't need analytics comment"

    To me what we had was a 2nd string coach, who was probably good philosophy wise, but in essence wasn't able to get away from his own tendencies.

    Telling that no HC jobs are coming his way as I think the rest of the league sees him as book educated but not " game wise" enough

    what happened to Baltimore? maybe its because when you are #1 seed and the game 16 is a throw away so not many starters play, then a bye, and then you play a team coming hot off a big win with al the momentum, you somehow lost your edge..

    o know its supposed to be an advantage especially team needing rest and get injured players healthy but in the past 5 years or so its not been as big of an advantage as its used to be

    Now that he's got all the money he could want GUARANTEED, it is highly unlikely. He hasn't shown the offseason dedication it takes to be the best.

    Tennessee and Dallas have two of the very best offensive lines.
    Any RB running on those teams should put up nice numbers if given the carries.
    But Henry just wears teams down on his own as well. Just a huge man.

    COACHING makes a huge difference in winning and losing games the titans coaches figured out how to defend Jackson and it worked now other teams will copy that in the nfl today coaching makes a huge difference in winning and losing

    its nice that there are coaching staffs that see momentum and just keep doing it vs ours at times last year got cute and went away from what was working. however in no way is that our players fault.. BTW they use 3 RBS very efficiently so thats great.

    the flip side is the titans using one back efficiently...

    The new staff better utilize Zeke and pollard much the same way next season, when they are hot ride them all game..we did this against the rams but it was few and far between as there were so many game where EE was hot the first half and they went pass happy the 2nd half.. as a matter a fact Zeke led the nfl with first half yardage..

    this cant happen in 2020, you see how a solid run game can carry a team and take pressure of the QB..

    I guess Vrabel's process isn't as complicated as sweat we were subjected to for a decade ....

    Your negativity towards Jackson is no secret, but I think the larger negative in Baltimore's game last night was their OL. Their OL did not hold up well against the Titans.

    The Cowboys run blocking wasn't close to being at the top of the NFL this season.

    My criticism of Jackson is his lack of prolific passing skills and dependance on running which will flame out one his legs are taken out. Then what do you have?

    I see him as more of a flash in the pan. It will fizzle out sooner rather than later.

    That was just for show. He didn't show up in any kind of football shape. Lets hope its a quiet offseason for zeke and that he's putting in the work.

    If you could get past Jackson for a moment, your criticism of him was not my point. The Raven's OL was a bigger problem than your issues with Jackson. They allowed too much pressure to get to Jackson, plus they totally folded twice when the Ravens went for it on 4th and 1. The OL didn't play well.

    How did you like Jackson’s performance . He threw some beautiful fluttering ducks. Lol

    Are you wearing blinders? You've totally missed the point twice now. I saw the stupid ducks, did you see the OL's poor play? If his OL had played better, that game could've easily went the other way.
