    He pulled himself out at one point. He took a big hit and waived to the sideline. I think maybe he got banged up more than we know.

    He tapped his helmet more than he did the feed me thing. He asks out of the game too much.

    Best RB on the sidelines on 3rd & short screams "PASS!" I'm sure there's a plan there somewhere.

    i can't be the only one who feels like smashing my TV whenever this happens? You have the best back in the league... but take him off on the most important down in football.... especially when he excels in blitz pick up and receiving... does EVERYTHING 290x better than Dunbar... I just don't get it.

    That is a fireable offence for both Carrot Top and stuck in the 90s Linnehan.

    I frankly don't understand why they did that. Dunbar should not be seeing the field period. WHY in the world do you put a guy with questionable blocking in on 3rd down? Was he supposed to be some kind of passing threat or something?

    Yup. It is utterly ridiculous. Zeke should not be pulled for Dunbar.

    only 290X more like 1000X, also does it seem that Dunbar no longer has any burst. He looked slow, last year when he caught things it seemed he was in high gear in no time.

    Couch coach, plays look genius when they work and look dumb when they don't. Giants were up in the O's arse and made the plays when they needed to.

    I noticed that and worried he was hurt. Might have had something bothering him.

    I don't recall #22 on sidelines on 3rd downs...
    This game was going to be one of those cold weather game that called for the big o line and Zeke to be physical and win this...

    they have been doing that for games usually before the opening kick off and after half time.

    If anything, you put Alfred Morris in the game. Dunbar cost us big, especially on the kickoff return when he caught it and instead of fair catching, he ran and only got to the ten or 15. I'm not going to blame him, but rather the coaching.

    What about the last four plays of the game?

    I rewatched and Zeke is not on the field for all four.

    1st down: Dunbar in the backfield
    2nd Down: Dunbar in the backfield, Zeke on the sideline next to Romo:


    3rd down: Dunbar in the backfield
    4th Down: Dunbar and Witt in the backfield.

    Was Zeke hurt or something?

    Sounds like a loser of an explanation. Oh wait, it must be about situational circumstances again.

    I have no idea. I'm just saying Elliot has to be spelled every now and then.

    I agree, not trying to argue or dismiss your point, i just think its really odd for him to be on the sidelines for all four plays to end the game so Dunbar can be on the field, really??

    I'm searching for a logical answer and the only ones I can come up with are he was hurt or did something ti get in the coaches dog house

    im so done with dunbar. there are 3 outcomes with him on the field.

    1. pass to the flat to him is dropped
    2. he misses his blitz pickup
    3. tackled for no gain

    the dude has done nothing as of late. give me mcfadden. heck even morris. ever since dunbars back morris has less touches
