Henry is getting better. Zeke is getting worse.
Henry is a generational talent and, at this pace, may make a case for one of the all-time greats in par with guys like Dickerson and Emmitt. With his size and speed and cutting ability, he’s a unique specimen.
Good lord they are running that dude into the ground. Statistics show that he’ll be out of the league in a year or two carrying the football that much. That’s literally insane.
It wasn’t that long ago that Zeke was averaging that kind of yardage and look what has happened to him quick, fast, and in a hurry.
The die was cast when he got that contract. Fat slob got paid and that was all she wrote. He's a jag coasting to retirement, not even the best back on the team any longer.
Roy Williams got too big, to muscular and was tight. he would have been better as a LB. Zeke has no offensive line, period. If he drops 10 lbs and works on acceleration skills, he can make a come-back. He is still young enough without major injuries. 3 of the 5 starting OLmen today were way below avg. Two avg at best. Watch next year with Tyler Badass at center, Zach, Lael and Tyron back. Zeke will get 1400 yards, baring major injuries. Zeke still has more athletic ability than DeMarco Murray had in his best Cowboy year.
Henry looks like he is about to take it to the house with every touch. Zeke just falls forward for 3 yards.
Speed don't come back once you let it go. Zeke is not getting faster or quicker.
Henry is clearly better- however - let’s compare TN Oline stability to the 3rd and 4th stringers Zeke had to run behind.
Ultimately stats aren't the whole story. Again - Henry is clearly better - but Zeke isn’t terrible
Too bad we benched Romo for this mediocrity. We could have gotten our money’s worth with Zeke, who was drafted for Romo. Our play action would have been on a whole different level, because it wouldn’t have been used too three in the league in this basic offense, but for big play chunks.
But we decided to bench him for this mediocrity at QB based on some short term success, where defenses didn’t realize all you had to do was double Beasley.
At least 20 mill just for his lethal stiff arm.
There isnt a DB in this league that wants to be squared off with that man.
Lets be honest, even if our OL was at peak performance with no injuries, Zeke doesnt come close to sniffing 2k rushing yards.
But will we train Zeke for speed? Will the staff give him the goal of leaning up and recapturing second gear? It seems they should have already done so. Its been evident to all of us for some time now.
Ryan Tannehil is also a better QB than Dak, because he knows how to win. This man had the highest play-action rating of any QB in 2019.
Funny thing is about the second article, with how much we run it with Dak, we weren’t even top 10.
This year he’s thrown 33 TDs and only 7 INTs on 454 throws. Dak likes to throw 14 of his 30 with his 11 INTs against the Redskins and Giants while throwing 596 times in his ‘MVP year’.
I guess we can say Henry's had his oline all year too
Lamar Jackson also rushed for more yards than Zeke this year.
You never know. He might be one of those generational freaks like Emmitt Smith.
We made a massive mistake
......Nor Dak his first 2 seasons.....
Andy Dalton rushed for more yards this game than Dak has all year, while we are at it.
Our mistake wasn’t in drafting Zeke, our mistake was in benching Romo, for this mediocrity at QB. Zeke was drafted for Romo.
