    Zeke is Jerrys boy so he gets to play. Gregory is Jerrys boy so he gets to play. Collins is Jerrys boy so he gets to play. Just like Jaylon was and Crawford was. The list goes on and on. Play time when available is not affected by selfishness, ineffectiveness, past suspensions, past injuries, etc. Play time is determined by super Jerry. Heck play style is determined by super Jerry. This whole freaking clown show is run by an old drunk buffoon.

    Mods, is there a "Dislike" button? I would like to give Risen several for his commentary in this post.

    If no "Dislike" button can be selected, can we have one that takes "Likes" away from members (read: specifically from the "Likes Collector")?

    Thanks. I'll hang up and listen.

    From what I've read, Zeke refused to sit out. He saw what Pollard did against LAC and knew he might be out of a job if Pollard got too many carries.

    I posted the exact quote from Beasley above.

    He told us how this organization operates.

    I think what's much more likely is Zeke just doesn't have much left in the tank and after 5 weeks of the season he started breaking down.

    Other factors too. The OL was terrible. They don't get a pass.

    First, nobody said he wasn't injured. Try to read more carefully. I said the exact opposite actually.

    I didn't question whether he was injured. I questioned whether the injury was really the reason for the decline. This confused you apparently.

    And his numbers didn't dive right when he was injured. He decided to have his 2nd most productive game of his entire season the week after the injury before the decline.

    Zeke should have been put on IR midseason. He may have had a chance to heal and be a solid contributor late. MM mismanaged the situation badly but he’s done that at just about every turn.

    The structure was the killer on that deal.

    Nothing quite like an inexperienced pass happy OC coupled with a 15m RB and a limited skillet QB as a meal combo!

    Jerry Jones is your chef. We vomit annually.

    You think Mike McCarthy can make the decision to shut down Zeke in the middle of the season?

    First year following the Cowboys?

    front office needs an excuse for why he’s returning next season and still getting all the carries. Risen solved the mystery.

    So he was so hurt that he was unable to perform yet he continued to play even though it was hurting the team. If this is your stance then who is to blame? IMHO Zeke is to blame and the coaches are to blame and the Owner is to blame. Bottom line is our fat little RB is looking for his latest and greatest get out of jail free card. IMHO he is as guilty as anyone.

    Again, by all accounts he was in the best shape of his career coming into camp. His numbers the first month of the season were right on pace with what he was doing in his second season. All signs were pointing to him being a top 3-4 rusher and having a great bounce back season. Maybe you're confused, a 26 year old doesn't just fall of a cliff 5 weeks into the season.

    It's funny, I remember a lot of posters telling Beasley to have fun going to Buffalo because he was going to a losing team at the time, well he got the last laugh. Since Beasley has been with the Bills in 2019, this weekend will be his 6th playoff game with them, they're 3-2 in playoff games. Dallas has been there once since then and lost once.

    And he's playing with a real top 5 QB.

    There's your answer. The players don't decide who gets to play. (or doesn't get to play in this case). That's on coaches/FO
