Yes, but they would be in a different statistic category than running backs.
I did not know tha, feline chap!
I thought running yards were running yards no matter the role.
Crumple up me crumpets, tha is a good thing to know, both fullback and RB stats.

I admit I thought Henry's foot speed was slow coming into the NFL. Saw him get trapped in the backfield too much at Bama.
But when he gets up a head of speed, he's almost impossible to tackle in the open field.
I was rooting for someone to tackle him when he tied Dorsett's record for longest run from scrimmage. But he was tossing dudes like snow off wiper blades.
Just imagine if we had gone Ramsey, Henry in the 2016 draft.
But hindsight always is 20/20. Sigh!
I felt the same
It’s like he’s gotten faster lol

WRONG.

:facepalm:

Not only does Henry have more rushing yards (8,335) than Zeke (8,262) on lesser attempts, he has more:
  • Rushing TDs (78 vs. 68)
  • Averages more YPC (career: 4.8 vs. 4.4)
  • More 1,500+ yard seasons (3 vs. 1)
  • Averages more yard-per-catch (career: 9.8 vs. 7.7)
Y'all are out crusading for Zeke and don't even know the basic numbers, lool.

Depends on what particular stat you look at. If it's total yards by all backs, then yes, all would be included, if it's running back yards, they would not be included. Plus, fullbacks usually don't get the number of touches a running back does.

Most productive? Does that come with a bowl of soup?

We saved $10.9 million this year alone. And he's off the books except for some dead money next year.

Your bitterness at him being gone is kind of funny.
I believe Dallas saved on his salary this year. However, the extensions (restructuring of contracts) are still due to Zeke. He is designated as a June 1st cut. Therefore, Dallas has to pay $550,000 to Zeke after June 1st and $550,000 next year. Its actually a total of 10.9 million over 2 years.

In honour of his achievement, I refer to him as Mr. Ezekiel Elijiah Elliott:

In this busy world of ours and in my James Bondish activities I overlooked something.

Chaps and plumbers, Zeke is THIRD MOST PRODUCTIVE RB IN COWBOYS HISTORY!
I didn't know tha!
And you who did know that, forgive me and dont be smug like Bill Maher, tha toad.
Look, with Emmitt, Tony, Calvin, Walt, Perkins, Robert Newhouse, Herschel and others, I assumed he was 5th or 6th.

I salute you Zeke!

Holla, and brings me a dollah
Appreciate the positivity, and yes Zeke had a great run with the Cowboys. He's also 3rd all-time in tds with 80. That's some good company, and a reminder how good he has been finding the end zone. Also a reminder how great Emmitt Smith is :).

Emmitt Smith- 164 tds in 201 games
Tony Dorsett- 86 tds in 157 games
Zeke Elliott- 80 tds in 103 games
Bob Hayes- 76 tds in 128 games
Dez Bryant- 75 tds in 113 games
Jason Witten- 72 tds in 255 games
Michael Irvin- 65 tds in 159 games

Plus, FBs usually are short-yardage and blockers.
Yes, you are a genus.
