    Zeke would only have to average sixty yards a game to reach a thousand yards this season.imo, not worth 15 million a year. Honestly , my problem is simply with his bloated contract ,not zeke himself

    Yeah but he can only control what he does when they decide to give him the ball. So, if he gets 60 yards on 12 carries at a 5 ypc clip then I can’t fault him for not getting 100 yards on 20 carries. If he is only getting the ball 12 carries a game, I don’t want to see 48 yards rushing for a 4 ypc average. That’s Joseph Randle 2015 territory.

    The guy just gets too distracted with what fans or non-fans say... he needs to lay off twitter and just do his job. Show us on the field, not with his mouth. And always bring up money..... does seem to be a sensitive subject for him. Too thin skinned, I am all for the Zeke/Pollard combo, it is working.

    That's true.yards per carry is a better metric to measure performance. Its still early in the season and it will be interesting to see how Elliot is utilized. I mainly provide that statistic to show how easily it w Elliot could rush for a thousand yards because of what the other poster said about that number being a benchmark of zekes worthiness of his contract

    Zeke has already made his statement in Cabo.

    What a childish response. An adult would've said something like:

    "Tony's a great teammate and we both want the ball in our hands. But we don't call the plays, we just run what's called. Whatever it takes to win."

    To him??????? ....Pretty sure it's the same attitude of at least 95% of all players. They say the right things in front of the cameras but their family, teammate, and friends are all that matters.

    Couple of observations:

    1. He shouldn’t have said this.
    2. Good way to divide the locker room.
    3. Zeke feels the heat from Pillard’s performance, which is a positive.
    4. Sounds like Zeke is sensitive to media/fan perceptions.

    So many here, and they are usually on Page 1 of Threads, just read a couple lines out of context and without the whole story and toss their uninformed weight about like they're the righteous.

    It's amusing to see who does this the most. There are always the usual suspects.

    Yah, but you miss the bottom line. Bottom line he ISNT getting all the carries because there is someone else that is more effective. So if some other back is taking carries away from you, then that is all part of Zeke not earning his money.

    Zeke is in a no win situation. That contract was dumb. Only way he is with that kind of money is if he puts up McCaffrey type numbers. 2000 combined yards and 20 TD's.

    If Zeke got 400 touches this year he wouldnt get those kind of numbers.

    Wiring someone money is a older term for electronic fund transfers.

    Zeke is 25th in rushing after 2 games with a 3.9 YPC. He also has less yards rushing than 3 quarterbacks (Jackson, Hurts and Jones). . . . . . But he’s still the same Zeke . . . . :rolleyes:
