Well, are you not a noob?
Get over it, snowflake.
I just hope Pollard can pick up the blitz or this season could end up being a train wreck if Dak is injured.
I think that is what Dallas hopes Giants are banking on to. Translation look for 25 carries by Pollard.
Internet tough guy, got it. I'll be sure to steer clear of you from now on.
I think its unrealistic to believe he can fill Zekes shoes week 1. If we sit back and remember, Zeke himself struggled the first couple games of his own career and hes a far better runner than Pollard.
I hope so. I just drafted him in my fantasy league.
Please do since you are so sensitive Mr. Super Hankey.
I could care less!!!!
Yup going to miss all those red zone TDs
It shouldnt be hard to run the ball behind this oline. Lots of other teams can run the ball with scrubs at RB. Phillip Lindsay is not very good but he was top 10 in rushing with absolute crap around him. Chris Carson is not very good, yet he was top 5 in rushing last year. Some guy named matt breida averaged 5.2 yards per carry last yr. Its not hard to run the football especially when you have multiple all pros on your oline and a competent passing game to keep teams from loading the box.
For the most part fans have been over the top enthusiastic about Pollard, around here at least.
Lindsays yards after contact where awful as well. His oline did most the work, although his vision and burst I am sure played a big role as well. BUT yes point taken, this oline will make many a running back look good.
Or, !maybe, ése, we limit your recruiting, next time, to your county and the tri-pecos area?
You came to this conclusion all of the sudden. On your own?
Yes,Pollard might surprise.
Ring it out, passtorun!!
People don’t understand this.
Yes Zeke is great but the RB position will get production from just about anyone that gets the volume.
If Tony Pollard got 300 carries this year he would most likely be a top 3 rusher.
This whole exchange....
I don't disagree with that notion, but I distinctly recall sitting through the Darren McFadden season in disbelief over what became of our run game. Yes, there were some volume stats by season's end, but at no point did it feel like our ground game dictated anything. We got yards because we ran a lot, not because we imposed anything on anyone. They were inconsequential.
That stands in stark contract, in my opinion, with how our offense has looked with prime Murray and Zeke.
Let me frame it from a different angle. We are constantly hearing how this running game hides Dak's inefficiencies. That he hides behind it. Our run game did nothing to help any QB in 2015.
Time to pay up? No it's not time...he's got TWO whole years left on his deal...
I think this situation would be completely different if this was next season, but its not and Zeke's a knucklehead who thinks he shouldn't have to wait for his turn.
Wanted to add one final thought on the volume aspect.
As our lead rusher in 2015, Darren McFadden was held to 3.2 yards per carry or less 7 times in 16 games.
Zeke, in three seasons as our lead rusher, has been held to 3.2 yards per carry or less 4 times in 40 games.
The end result of McFadden's volume was quite nice: 1,080 yards and a 4.6 average. But it was a rollercoaster ride to get there. I'd argue that the reason a player like Zeke is more capable of carrying the mantel of a run-heavy offense is because of his week-to-week consistency, which is hard to come by no matter what volume we're talking about.
Zeke has been an embarrassment to himself, His family, OSU, And the Dallas Cowboys as far as money is concerned. How much $$$ has he left on the table? Tens or hundreds of millions? He made the decision to be a bad judgement type of guy. When he did that he gave up in what could have been a brand as big as any in the NFL. He either surrounded his self with horrible people who led him astray. Or he just didn’t care. The NFL’s rusher, playing for the Dallas freaking Cowboys and he can’t get an endorsement from
Even a used car lot or a Low T supplement company. He should have owned the endorsement market. Now, he’s trying to recoup some of what he will never get from advertisers, from the hide of Jerry Jones. Another bad judgement call.
