    At least he knows he can still improve to be with the other RB's that are playing better...

    At least he is being honest about it.

    I believe this is Cook’s third year in the league. It will be interesting to see if he is willing to play next year without a new deal. Especially given how he is playing this season.

    Zeke may not have the most yards (yet?) and by his standards is having a down year. Having said that, he is avg 4.7 per rush and 5 of 8 games has exceed 100+ rushing yards. Cook has played 9 games so it is possible for Zeke to catch him. The downside of Zeke this year is he has had 3 really subpar games.

    thats what we pay him for. The players and owners should both get that contract and have language that states if you dont earn your new contract it can be revoked. this is embarrasing.

    Compared to his rookie season, Zeke looks like he's lacking burst and a second gear in the hole...I don't know if he has an injury to his lower body but he doesn't look like the same back to me..

    Those Next Gen stats are cool.

    Is he slower before the line cause he's trying to wait and see for the hole, or does he lack the "elite" burst/acceleration or whatever you want to call it?

    The first one.

    Cook might actually have better burst, but in practice it's b/c Zeke is purposely slower to set up blocks and wait for a cut to open up.

    Seems like just yesterday a bunch of cheerleaders called us idiots for saying Zeke was lacking explosiveness this year. Here is it is clear as day.

    I saw this article and kind of laughed.

    Some of these new stats are so silly......

    Speed at the line of scrimmage. I mean Leveon Bell would have been at like 2 mph when he was playing at Pittsburgh in his heyday! What does this have to do with playing RB in the NFL

    Zeke should be chastised by this forum for making negative comments about Zeke!

    Another thread to discuss zekes money. Cook is finally healthy. Mcaffrey is the only guy who has been consistent throughout his career somewhat on Zekes level. Fournette is another guy finally healthy.

    He’s running back in the number one offense. Keep up the good work Zeke!

    Can't think of anything more ridiculous than speed at LOS. I guess it'd be similar to measuring each quarterback's MPH on their throws and assuming the hardest thrower is the best. There's so much more to being a great running back than slamming through the hole at full speed that the stat essentially tells you nothing at all.

    Next Gen can have those miles per hour fantasy numbers ...even a scat back can have those MPH numbers

    what i'm interested and anxious to see if Zeke gets back to the big chunk 20 yrd and occasional 40 to 60 yd TD bursts he was putting on display in his first two-three years in the NFL.
    When teams were frighten on their toes about him popping the big one for a homerun TD.

    it's only my guesswork (and paranoia) but I really do wonder if the coaching staff trying to change zeke's style and frame into more of a grind-pounder to sacrifice the breakaway burst he
    used to have and displayed.
    And I've heard a Garrett press conferences where reporters are starting to bring that up (zeke's splash plays) to Garrett for responding answers.
