The offense was at its best when Zeke was great.. The more we ask from Dak the worse our team gets and the better his numbers look.
If we're not going to ask more from Dak, we shouldn't be paying him so much more. Russell Wilson got paid, and produces every year even when there are limited resources spent on those around him.
I'd say that the offense was great when the *run game* was great. How much of that was Zeke and how much the oline is open to question. 2014 the oline had 2 All Pros and one Pro Bowler, 2016 3 All Pros. Leary playing well both seasons, Free playing well for 2014, average for 2016.
By the end of this year, the only real cap hit left on the field was Cooper and Zeke, and only one of them could be argued to be worth it.
Dak, Martin, Smith, Collins, Jarwin all out. Yet The Replacements put up some big games. As the defense got rolled. Time to spend more on defense, and *stop* spending on players that don't value commensurate to their cap.
