Ask coach Jerry
What is best for the Cowboys is for zeke to no longer be a Cowboy. That much is painfully obvious. His contract is a huge problem and his hold on the offense and the RB position creates another huge problem. Zeke hold back this offense with his slow, plodding, ball hogging style.
Why does Pollard have to be a featured back?
How does having a few carries make a RB better? That's the dumbest thing I have EVER heard. If anything, RB's need to get in a groove. Harder to pop the big one with 5 or 6 carries a game. You get 10-15 and now you get a chance to do some damage.
Stay healthy? What the H are you talking about? Pollard missed like one or two games with a ding and thats it in 3 years. Zeke was the one that was hurt for half the season.
Absolutely should feature Pollard!
Pollard breaks more tackles and makes more people miss than Zeke, that is a statistical fact. Pollard doesnt need anything but more carries and an opportunity.
"Duh Pollard is so good because they rarely use him"
Has to be one of the dumbest quotes of the year. Doesnt even make any sense.
Let us then give Zeke limited touches.
What, you think having fresh legs helps somehow?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Its amazing how much better the O line looks when Pollard runs versus Zeke.
In general, defenses could just pinch in on Zeke, knowing he would rarely take it outside and beat teams with speed. Beyond that, he has picked up the habit of waiting for a big hole instead of just bursting out. Zeke's knee injury seemed to have made this significantly worse. Its a sin that Dallas kept Zeke with the majority of the workload despite his injury.
Elliott, if healthy should take the starts. What happens after this coming season is another conversation.
I agree with more touches. Not disagreeing there. But there’s a part of this fanbase that thinks Zeke should get less carries but him punishing the defense probably benefits Pollard.
I’m not writing him off. I’m just saying I don’t think Zeke gets more carries just because they are invested in him with money. I honestly feel like Pollards role is perfect for what they need.
I wonder how many teams feature their 2nd best RB.
I think this is my favorite post of yours yet. So if getting limited touches makes RB's better, then lets give Zeke as little as possible since he needs the most help. LOL
I didn't want to believe it, but that's part of it. Salary. But I can't understand when Zeke was injured....
Only Zeke doesnt punish the defense. Pollard is the one punishing defenses. Being easy to tackle isnt punishing anyone.
agree.. but Pollard was injured too. I wish we would of drafted a RB this year…
And pay their 2nd best RB 18 million?
we are currently doing it lol
