    We don't want elusive. We want a battering ram to put his head down and try to gain an extra yard absorbing and dishing out as much punishment as possible.

    Kansas City RB snap % last week:

    CEH- 34%
    Bell- 33%
    Darrell Williams- 32%

    Looks like the super bowl Champs use the epitome of a committee thingy

    Zeke gets those “hidden yards,” you know, the ones that don’t show up in the stat sheet, lool.

    Zeke is going to be an anchor for the next several years.

    You base everything on one game? No wonder you can't get anything right!!!!

    Seriously, look at the seasons stats. Here you go:

    Player: Carries
    Clyde 126
    Mahomes 35
    Williams 20

    That is the epitome of a bell cow back. Now, do you have the nerve to admit you were wrong?

    He is averaging 14 carries a game. Is that the definition of “bell cow” now?

    a bell cow in today’s nfl is stupid. The difference between the chiefs and this one is night and day and if their top RB went down they wouldn’t be completely lost. The Cowboys RB is overused, pulls himself regularly and that certainly doesn’t get better as the seasons wear on. Plus it hasn’t netted any quality results at all. CEH is a rookie and I highly doubt he’s seeing the usage that Elliott is seeing when he hits year 5. He’s not even seeing it in year 1.

    Pretty much, yes. Especially on a high octane O like KC's.

    A high number of carries in today's NFL is around 250. Yes, I know a few get more. 250 carries in a season averages out to 15.6 carries/game. Even 300 carries averages out to 18.75 carries/game.

    I would define a bell cow back as a player who takes the majority of a team's carries. Clyde fits that to a T.

    Watched TP blow it open in college from out of the slot, backfield or the outside. The cat has a lot of skills that Moore's not using ...

    I think most people agree that Pollard has more skills than is being shown in Moore's offense. The question really is whether every down, 15-20 carry a game back is one of them. I don't think so.. some do.. At some point I guess we will see.

    The day of the every-down back is over. Dallas is so stuck in the 90 's...they needed a fresh approach with a COACH that was modern...not some fat Overhill coach who got lucky because he had Rogers...

    Hell we don't even fully utilize Zeke in the passing game.. so it should be no surprise that we can't figure out how to use Pollard. Moore simply has no feel for how to use running backs. Whether it be running or passing. His favorite formation is 5 wide empty backfield. That's why we go to it so often in the red zone.

    And yet the three best seasons we've had in the past decade were when we had the NFL's leading rusher. Weird isn't it?

    and in the last two years, about 10 games have turned when zeke let and poplars csne in. That includes games this year. All who think pollard is better are mildly ********. Retired football players who know the game and break down film all see that zeke gets more attention rim the defense than pollard, but these short bus fans think they understand the game better and say pollard is better. He’s the 2020 Troy ham brick.
