    Saquan hit the fastest speed of any ball carrier in week 1. Chido was just faster (hit the fastest speed since 2017 in fact).

    Tony Pollard ran and unofficial 4.37 and has yet to break one long. Give Zeke time, and watch teams back up into coverage, then watch Zeke sore.

    pollard has only had a few carries and no gaping holes like elliot has had.
    Heck Randle would have already broken a long run.

    Absolutely not. He held out. They held him back significantly week one, and to a lesser degree week 2, working him up to game speed. In order to avoid him getting hurt. He not only has not lost anything, but has not reached his peak.

    Besides Barkley, name one back who runs away from the secondary? The secondary guys are the fastest guys on any team. However, let those secondary guys get tackled about 20 times a game and that speed won't be what it was. I think running backs are always a bit nicked up and I think they also try to protect themselves a bit from being tackled from behind when they are running flat out. When Bo got injured it was because he was running full speed and someone who had the angle got him from the side and behind. Bo's career over at that point. The true test on any running backs speed is always when he is in the open and trying to get run down from behind. I haven't seen zeke get run down from behind in that situation yet.

    Go watch that Pittsburgh game his rookie year. I agree with OP, he used to be fast and now not so much.

    Btw I still think he’s an elite running back. But simply agreeing that he has lost some speed for sure.

    His belly has grown a bit since his early years but he's still as productive as ever!:thumbup:

    It possibly takes him longer to reach top speed! Maybe it's just what the night life will do?

    Give me the guy that consistently gets 5/6/7 yards than a guy who breaks an 80 yarder then gets stuffed for 12 yards on his other 18 carries...
    Keep the chains moving....

    We had another guy that did that for a while here. Ended up doing pretty well, made off with some nice jewelry and a gold jacket.
