Elliott has become the most over paid under until utilized top RB in the league. Ridiculous
Oh, you misspelled the All Time leading rusher. Lol
FYI you get about 20 minutes to edit a post.
I’m usually not a stickler on grammar but misspelling his name is an embarrassing moment for a great fan. And why I thought you must be speaking of someone else.
Of course. Pollard is a nice compliment but if he started defenses would snuff him out.
Why in the world do people on this board keep saying this and acting as if it in any way has anything to do with our current RB situation and even worse think it somehow means Pollard shouldn’t be involved in our offense. Its like people find a “go to” line and just throw it out there even though it is completely irrelevant.
The big play stats are interesting but not usually a big stat line for an every down starter.
I’d be curious what other top RB’s in the league “ big play” stat lines are.
Typos are typos they happen that is why they call them typos Now I am going to get medicated and make more typos
No it’s not a different game.
We see scrubs with less talent than Pollard come in and do well all the time.
The best move is just let them split carries but if Pollard ever has to “carry the load” then Dallas will be more than fine.
This is actually one of the better perspective post in this thread.
Pollard is a good running back and I like him. All I said is the situation is very similar
Not only that, Zeke is no Emmitt. No knock on Zeke, just Emmitt was very durable, consistent and had that burst for a long time. Also wanted to be the best.
We need to go with what is working and the one two punch is great right now. TP has more talent than Hambrick ever came close to. Unfortunately he came to a team with Zeke. That is why he's a back up. When he started last year he went wild. I wouldn't put a ceiling on him yet. This is what, his third year in the league? We don't know how he'd perform on an extended run, but we know he's excelled when given the opportunity.
Zeke still has the burst. He’s just not bursting the holes or getting around the corner.
16 carries for 75 yards is a serviceable day. If he averaged 20 carries a game at that pace he’d have near 1700 yards probably leading the league.
I still think stopping Zeke is #1 goal of defenses. Our record when he rushes over a 100 yards is very good. But he needs closer to 20 carries a game.
I was not calling Hambrick better than anyone just stated that the situation was similar and it is.
Sounds like you’re saying Zeke is not necessary and no longer an offensive weapon.
Shots fired Bob….shots fired.
Yeah I see your point. Hindsight and all, but TP seems to be alot better back. It will be interesting to see how the team handles it.
When he takes Zekes job away from I will accept it if he can. Right now we have both use them. And Pollard has been getting more playing time I like him at the slot receiver position
Transition to the better player
It's what good teams do
I'd agree, and to add to that, Dak seems to have turned the corner on holding the ball too long trying to read the defense, he's making the reads and letting it fly. Opposing defenses might have to stop loading up on the run and daring Dallas to pass,,, which should make Zeke more productive.
Thanks Greg. Nice to NOT argue!
Maybe they’ll add someone next year.
