    Yep

    But we have fans who thought just because we hired an experienced HC that Jethro wouldn’t continue to meddle.

    That would be a good follow to MM excuse for Zeke's poor play.

    Reporter to MM:
    Mike, regardless of the cause of Zeke's production decline, why didn't the coaching staff recognize/decide to use a more capable player that would improve offensive production?

    Don't ever buy merchandise, tickets, memorabilia etc., not even at wholesale prices. Boycott Jerry and his foolishness.

    Maybe but Cole Beasley is also a notorious whiner so I am not sure I'd put a lot of faith in things he's uttering.

    I understand that, but watching them play Zeke over the better player clearly seems to show what Beasley is talking about.

    I'm also reminded about Witten taking a year off, coming back, and instantly playing 99% of the snaps.

    There's something to what Beasley is saying here.

    "We're" not.

    Some of us live in reality.

    Through 4 games, he was averaging 85 yards per game, which would be 13 yards less per game than his 2017 and 2018 seasons.

    He was not on pace to match his 2nd season. He did have 4 TDs through 4 games this year but that hardly shows he was on pace to match his 2017 season production.

    Some of you are really struggling with the reality that Zeke just isn't as good as he was. And frankly, this was utterly predictable too.

    I don't know - to me Zeke looked better at the beginning of the year that I'd had seen him in the past couple years. Quicker, some explosion was back, moving better to the hole. I was pretty excited about what he looked like. Then after week 6 he fell off a cliff and moved like he was hurt. Very stiff, no explosion, no fluid movement.

    I suspect the Jones Boys have been wielding their influence over personnel for quite some time. The OL scramble after Collins returned is another example of risky personnel moves.

    No one of us know the true story, but we can all clearly see he was being outperformed by Pollard when it came to offensive production. The coaching staff is stupid for making Zeke the featured back.

    Who cares if he played hurt? His production hurt the team

    I see your point but using the same thought process does it also make sense that he started pretty hot and then just completely fell off one day and never had another game reminiscent of how he started? I could see a more steady decline making sense but such a steep drop off that he never regained does lend itself to the idea that he had an injury. Now, if he truly was injured it just means this coaching staff/ front office are even bigger morons than we thought to not just go with Pollard/Clement and let Zeke rest. I still have nightmares of him just barreling up the middle for no gain for the last 9 weeks of the season.
