Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the

"Texas is seen hospitalizations rise more than fifty percent since Memorial Day a lot of people around this area just were very complacent and they were ready to get out of their homes Beth Cordova I'm nursing Houston and five of her family members are currently fighting the virus I was literally terrified because I just didn't know I mean you read so many horror stories but I am worried about it reopening because our cases here have exploded just in the last two weeks multiple Houston Texans in Dallas Cowboys players including Zeke Elliott reportedly tested

Frustrated with fallout from his weekend gathering, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott clarifies, says fewer than 10 people were at house
"Back to us. Dak Prescott held a social gathering over the weekend. No social gatherings right now. I don't care you know if you it under ten overs over ten just Nixon. Everyone else is eating the poop right now. You do too Mr quarterback anyway. He held a party. And Zeke Elliott was also there and Dacca's upset because he thinks it's been blown out of proportion by the media and by idiots like me saying it wasn't more than ten people it wasn't out of control it wasn't a ranger But Steven Jones says Tuesday in an interview with the fan in Dallas that he talked to both Prescott and Elliott about not conducting gatherings while most of the country remains under quarantine. Here's what Stephen Jones had to say Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then do press got released a statement. Where do you come down on this March attack? Angry with them furious furious. I think two things Jane slater followed up to report that some of the images that showed the swanky bizarre looking party center was actually a a local restaurant called Nick and Sam's that she's been to and they actually took their own photos of the spread. They sent to Jack on with all these things in general. It's like if if someone were to from a PR angle examine what I did from age. Twenty to twenty eight. It would be a horrific story for the nation to follow along in general. Let's try to stay. Let's just like not get in our own way while the entire country is gripped by the biggest Health Related News. Story of our lifetime and your deck. Prescott and Zeke Elliott hanging around eating lamb wings or whatever it is eating. It's just why this wings when they don't know what was on the menu. I might be right. I have to stop. Lamps brings to stop going to my neighbor's front yard every day at five o'clock and sitting eight feet across from each other here. You're sitting across from each other not having a party inside your house with all having dinner at the same table. He said less than fewer than ten people right. I mean it's hard to keep track of the rules and get a handle on severity when the messages so mixed from layers at the national state and Cable News Levels. Dr Ci Telling People that Hate. Take a swing on tinder if you need to. He basically said it on that podcast. We mentioned if you're if you're willing to take the risk. Go down the Tinder Avenue. She said shoot. Your shot is basically what he said. So it's a dangerous time in the Corinthian because this is kind of a screw it time. Meaning some of my like. I'm sick of this screw. It like I am tired of doing this. I'M GONNA have my friends over. I've been doing this for weeks. It's tired and I WANNA see my girlfriend. Whatever IT MAY BE. It's sort of the screw it period and I think maybe that's what that got into my question. Why is Dak hosting anything? He shouldn't be hosting a heap. That means he has to pay for food and drink and everything. There's like six different people on the cowboys. That should be hosting party. Zeke should be hosting the Marcus. Jalen all of those guys who have been paid I picture. Dak and his front door charging twenty dollars a Solo Cup to come in. He's the last guy who should be hosting. They should be hosting him. It's not the end of the world but it's also west like days after he's out working out with Dez Bryant and everyone's got their arms around each other and at some point. Yeah you're young and you make mistakes again. It's not the end of the world. But you're also like an example for everyone tracking Dak Prescott in the state of Texas and like if it's cool that he's just going out like basically living his life as normally does and other people think that they can't do
Jerry Jones talked the talk. But Ezekiel Elliott knew Cowboys owner would pay up
"Begin begins today with jerry jones closing in on a deal with ezekiel elliott as he said he would elliott has flown back from parts unknown and jones's put the money on the table. The dealers is reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety million dollars for six years which is a pretty nice neighborhood frank. Did the cowboys do the right thing by showing zeke the money yeah well. We know how it works tony. It's all about the guaranteed money so right now. If it's six years of actually being eight year contract because we being extension still has two years left. I think jerry jones and i think is equal. It all knew that he was going to be backed by week one. I think this whole thing all along him going to mexico wherever he was working out. He knew that he would be back. I think he's our most important offensive player and to the point point. Jerry jones is desperate desperate to win the super bowl and he thinks he needs ezekiel elliott and he didn't wanna missing one game so i'm gonna push back gently because they need suzuki and this had to be done. I'm not sure they need ezekiel elliott right now. This has nothing to do with money. In my mind i think they open with the giants the better team than the giants and the redskins. They're a better team than the redskins. I think what went on in jerry's mine is the specter of emmett smith when they went oh and two and he had to publicly sort of eat crow and go and give him the money now. I think you always want ezekiel elliott and to your point. He is their offense. This is not the kid from san diego dago melvin gordon yeah. They don't really need like you put dak prescott out there without zeke elliott and they don't really have a great offense. I'm just i'm just suggesting that it could have been because they're gonna. They're gonna give him the ball so much that he could get hurt. I could they wait for you. Want load management then in the n._f._l. N._f._l. I want him to make sure if i'm trying to win the super bowl. I wanna make sure i understand there's sixteen games before you get to the price. You're my lead guy but you're bringing being up. Emmett smith and emmett smith played with more battle-tested quarterback number one. Yes a better team. They went on to win the super bowl. This team has a long way to go before they can do that. I guess it's it's too important. You know the gauging your talk just chunking up saying they're they're guaranteed win. I don't i don't but that's how that's what jerry jones said. Maybe we'll get him back in a week. We need them in time for the playoffs. Yes you sure you're gonna make. I'm not saying i would wait till the playoffs. That's what he well. He made it sound like we don't need in the first few weeks. We'll play that is public. Posturing that jerry does very very well but the money's money's on the table
Ezekiel Elliott, agent touch down to finalize Cowboys deal
"Our reporter edward or who was in dallas following zeke situation closely. He said i've been told that agent. Rocky arsenault is traveling with running back ezekiel elliott from kabul to dallas. Remember zeke was working out in kabul bob now traveling back to his team's hometown source said an agreement between the team and the two-time n._f._l. Rushing champion is very close. Good news for cowboys cowboys fans as one is a pun us and it would be a good time to agree to a new deal multiple reports say again zeke left kabul to be back in dallas the hope being that if and when a deal gets done he would be in close proximity to the team and could rejoin them very quickly quickly michael. We'd said i this well. It's obviously <hes> on tuesday. You better be preparing with the people that you've got available to you for sunday and so we're working with the people that we have out here now and the ones that we have that we were going to be on the field and that's how we're preparing it will be great will be and would be great if a short period of time passes that zeke would be in that group but we'll see how wow today goes. We'll see how tamara goes. We'll see how the ensuing hours pan out again. Jerry jones commenting on this as he has throughout the process sometimes with better results than others but in any event when i said to you hey rocky. Our snow is with zeke elliot. He said you said what that is. Typically assigned things close. Yes yes exactly when the agents coming with the player that means. We're at the one yard line. We have some details to work out and again. We gotta remember that zeke elliott's already under contract so that's important he just joke right back in in terms of gain the physical done and sometimes it may take a day or two to work out the details with the agent get the approval in terms of some of the details worked out but in the meantime he could get the weekly game plan and there's speaking acclimated back <hes> very quickly so hopefully this gets resolved over the next day or so well jackie said this earlier but just to underscore underscore the point that sooner is better having said that you feel like as long as he's in camp. I mean not camp. I'm sorry with with the team and in practice by thursday day to be in the plan on thursday needs to be in by wednesday so so we gotta be close in order to go twenty four hours or so but it doesn't surly a matter how many players but it could be the most important place and we talked about this earlier you know just from past protections point he may be out there on third downs and in non non running situations because of his conditioning. Tony pollard has taken every rep in every meeting so i got to imagine that tony pollard even with zeke there this week will be a big part of the game well. It's so easy to think about zeke and to be effective. He's got to have the football on his hands but to your point pass protection is something he can do and has done and if that's what it is this week then so be it then you surviving advance so to
Holdout Ezekiel Elliott still absent from Dallas Cowboys as first game draws near
"Saturday multiple outlets report that there is some progress negotiation zeke and the cowboys and the expectation was that they would have something worked out by the end of the weekend then last night multiple reports stated that negotiations had fallen flat once again the category on structure the contract like total guaranteed money over how many years not necessarily how much the contract could top out at basically zeke is holding says i want todd gurley contract and then some the cowboys you're saying no because the dot girly contracts hawks folks because todd gurley is not right and if the rams were asked hey. Would you like to go sign. The curly contract again like no no. We're good. We love me on that one. This amid word you always has more cowboys have consistently shown willingness to sign their best players to extensions with two years remaining and make a player. The highest paid his position the fact that they're preparing to start the season without ezekiel ezekiel elliott has a holdout says a lot about how they view his demands. I drafted zeke elliott in in one of my fantasy leagues would have drafted him yesterday and the other fantasy league and my logic is there rawson rachel. He didn't really have have anywhere to go. He's under contract going anywhere and the whole sitting out thing like all right. He could sit out a couple of games. They're not gonna lose to the redskins or lose to the giants or lose lose to the dolphins which is not and this is not the lady on bell situation. He's not a free agent. Franchise tag like he still is under his rookie deal. Deal cowboys are in fact offering him a contract above and beyond that of a franchise tag. They're offering emigrate deal. Cowboys need him. They need him for later in the season need him to win a super bowl. The team is built around. Having a solid running game takes the pressure off dak prescott because it helps it helps to hide the fact that dak isn't deck. I mean that isn't that special. He is an elite but when is given all the weapon who work for he's going. He's fine. He's he's. He's he's draymond. Green deck is dre mongering with the cowboys really really effective without the cowboys and all they have probably just a guy but it's really hard to i find it draymond green just hard quarterbacks league and he has the equity and he continues to grow in terms of being a leader but this is ross and rachel. They're on a break but they're gonna get back together. A namesake tony pollard won't matter in a week or two weeks or a month or whenever and it it feels like the the cowboys probably went back and said look. We'll give you tell total dollar value of that todd gurley we just want to protect ourselves from your legal and bad the way the todd gurley did the cowboys haven't publicly once said anything said anything about you know dude. You were suspended six games and we went to the mattresses for you. Hey dude you almost got suspended this off season and we would have been therefore you. We would have said how wrong it was. We have fought for you. There is some there is some some some sweat equity from zeke but there's also some equity from extended from the cowboys and the other thing about the ross and rachel story to be honest at some point it did take away from the show right like i get it ross rachel. We'll be back together. Who are they dating now. When can they get back together all this other stuff but i like chandler. I like joey. I like how you doing.
Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though
"zeke elliott" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Who's not as special as zeke elliott which means i'm gonna limit your passing game. That's the different now. He's like a whole lot more ordinary right because i think he's a relatively. I want to say ordinary quarter. We spent an ordinary but he's not great no he's. He's a he's a good players a good quarterback. He was under pressure in hawaii wii. <hes> took a sack had some trouble getting the football off when there's pressure. If there's no run threat then load up and go after dak prescott make him beat you with his art or melvin gordon's the same kinda guy correct. What do you mean in terms of that sort of three down defense tilting town. I think melvin gordon is fantastic antastic. I think melvin gordon running. The football is dangerous. I think is one of the best running backs in the league. I think he's just a little early with his contract demands he really is he doesn't have the todd early numbers to back up his demands of todd gurley. Money is pretty pretty close yeah and and you need the starts to. That's the bigger issue. Elliott's been healthy. Not correct zeke has been helping healthy except when he's suspending him so right so i'm just going off melvin gordon and todd gurley he wants todd gurley money without todd gurley numbers. If if you have a guy in you if you if you can give i just don't understand and they they who is a jalen brown. Just <hes> in dallas yeah yes the linebacker greats you wanna talk about great story thirty five mill- guarantee per guy who tore in jail and came back and it was undrafted great linebacker. I gotta pay gotta pay him. They have a safety coming up to the needs to be paid. Yes <hes> and they have dak and they have a z. You can't pay all these doesn't matter better pay zeke. I zeke is the engine. He is the tip of the spear. He's the straw. That's that's what the rams did. They pay their running back. I right well the came up first. I say but you see there are ways to put it off. Not you want to but the rams lock the rams lockup early before they needed the problem with dallas. Is you still have to pay deck and deck wants forty. Mil daqing wants big big money. That's probably the rams. They gotta pay goff while you've you've got todd under contract. You're you've got your other best weapon on offense under contract. Your receivers are all under contract. <hes> jared goff will be next. All the dominoes are in place here here in l. a. in dallas you've got a mess what can happen between because i think they still have to pay amari cooper right in dallas yeah because again. If you're gonna pay you gotta pay cooper. Have somebody throw the ball pretty much. If you out derwyn james's injury feary might add pressure to get got melvin gordon back in camp because you need your offense be a little bit better but they also have philip rivers that got keenan allen. They've got <hes> acura. Who's a little better probably allers allers better than <hes> alfred morris who said sproles like oh. That was <hes> ireland right now. He's more spurs like runnin henderson the roles you can actually run the ball tremendous. He's not very big kick. Give it to him thirty five times game but you can you can.

Where did this come from and some of US will be there. Be there going. We told you so yeah. I mean because it's it's like I just don't understand where this notion of. Hey this guy can't this guy hasn't or can't improve. The guy just got himself out of a horrific slump last year. Now you can say Amari Cooper this Zeke Elliott that great true. They help him but you know what he helps helps them to yes. I mean two way street. This is a team game. There is not it's not one person is to blame for the entire the thing like I don't understand why people don't get that and why people don't understand that guys improve and this guy is only twenty five years old and he he's he's going to have the full training camp to work with Cooper. He's got the full camp <hes> to work with COP. He's already had a year will. He didn't have a year with Gallup because Gallup got injured so early last training camp now. He's going to have a full camp with him. He's going to have the other receivers whoever backups wide the being which is kind of you know. We don't know right now. There's it's pretty much a wide open race for the wide receiver four five and maybe six MHM. He's got you know he's going to be. He's going to be able to kind of reacquaint himself with Jason. WITTEN and I'm hearing that they're really nice things coming out about Blake Darwin so we may actually see where witnesses the guy out there on every single snap late. Jarmin's athleticism's is incredible so yeah I mean he's very good athlete. I was also by saying that Rico gathered was looking good which you know is scary to think that Matt Sean and send them away but yeah it just. There's just the things that are happening.

"Be N._F._l.. Teams are in training camp but that doesn't mean every player is we've got hold doubts in key spots Saints Michael Thomas Chargers Melvin Gordon who else Yana can gakugei Jacksonville Trent Williams in Washington and of course Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas the big one big name that everyone's watching out there in oxnard California all guys that <hes> are heading into either the final year of their deal or wants some sort of adjustment on their contract before camp or the season starts so we gotta go through all these the person who helps us make sense of all this stuff is our own Adam schefter so Adam Una make this pretty simple. I will give you a name and you tell us the latest on that player. Start with Ezekiel Elliott of of the cowboys will Zeke Elliott has not shown up in Oxnard California side of the Dallas Cowboys training camp and they're going through physical today. They are basically supposed to be attending a team meeting and there's no sign of Zeke right now which tells you soup that it looks like at the very least Zeke Watch is underway and it certainly feels like this is going to be a hold out while the two sides tried to see if they can come up with a new deal for Zeke Elliott but no signs of him California this yet and no signs as of November by the chargers camp right now then this one is going to go on for a while the two sides basically have their own stances. There have differing pains. Nobody Gordon's value. I don't see this getting south anytime this summer I I think this one looks like it has a real chance to go into the regular season. It's time for Austin Ecuador and Justin Jackson and no Michael Thomas in New Orleans still you take the reading receiver off that team. The saints have offered to make them the highest a wide receiver receiver in football. It sounds like he wants to get to a very high threshold north of twenty million dollars a year. We'll see what they can get there where the saints a willing to budge but Michael Thomas wants to become not just a highest eight wide receiver in football but the highest paid wide receiver football by a long shot right now while we wait for Julio Jones deal to potentially come in later this summer Adam sit tight we we'll come back to you as as needed. We're going to go back and talk about Ezekiel Elliott though how important is even to the cowboys he's led the N._F._l.. Rushing yards per game in each of his first three seasons the only other players to do that in the ninety nine year history of the N._F._l.. or Jim Brown and Earl Campbell perhaps you've heard of them. Both of those guys are in the hall of fame name safe to say that few running backs have ever had a better start to their careers then has Ezekiel Elliott
Ezekiel Elliott reportedly still hasn't decided whether to hold out from Cowboys training camp
"There are weird. Reports coming on profootballtalk reported over the weekend that Zeke Elliott is headed out of the country potentially this week which is curious considering the cowboys training camp this week I mean that's low bold but yeah man I mean if Zeke's not there and that's look it would suck and let me clear nobody wants us but it would be interesting that that's what I'll say it would not at all be desirable it would not at all be preferred but it would be interesting because Zeke not being there would cast a shadow over for the entire camp that you know a lot of guys not being there would not really be missed to to just put it one way but Zeke Elliott not being there there. Would you would feel that and if he wasn't there I mean who's who's your rb one. I mean honestly who who's starting running back for the Dallas cowboys. If it's not Ezekiel Elliott Darius Jackson Toni Ballard I mean that that would be that would be interesting is really the only way I can put that so <hes> hopefully we don't have to wonder too long. Hopefully we get some confirmation. That's is in fact staying in the United States in Oxnard and hopefully this was just a waste of about a minute of all of our lives.

Fourteen year old boy the name of Jalen MacKenzie struck by a stray bullet while attending a party died shortly after an area hospital. And the fifteen year old girl was also hit is in critical condition. His mother was asked about how she felt about Elliott reaching out to her and offering to pay for her son's funeral and she broke into tears. I'm sure she says she so grateful to the people in the community and the world and a country who have reached out. Zeke's kindness is no surprise to the Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was asked about this. He said Zeke is really a special guy. He's a great football player, obviously. But he's really good person. That doesn't surprise me one bit. I think he's just very generous. He's got a great spirit around back. I mean, all these guys a lot of these guys go above and beyond. And it's exactly the opposite of what you hear so much about the the pro football players trouble, for slapping, their wives around and so forth. Always a few bad eggs. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, you know in pro football. They have they have less there. They have fewer incidents of violent crime than in the general population nearly. Yeah, that's interesting.

"Time. You come back. That's a hard defense for the defender. Noah brown. Last year. Four catches now. One here this season at twenty eighteen so the ball to thirty eight of Washington for Dallas on the left hash game tied at seven apiece. Dak Prescott eleven to thirteen thrown at one hundred yards. And he's out of the shotgun here in an empty set to to his lap three to his right pass. The ball throws Laczi Kelly. Got it had he's dragged down Jewish shy of the thirty yard line by Clinton Dix. So they split Zeke Elliott out they go to for seven yards. That's the one thing. I'd like to see them get Zeke Elliott more involved in the passing. He's going to be over a thousand yard topless every year. He's in the National Football League hitting him more involved in the past two games. Go to open up this offense for the Dallas Cowboys. Sketch today. Forty third on the season for Z second down in three. Game clock at three seventeen. This time Prescott under center turns cans it off and hit in the backfield drops him settled coming up to make the stop on rod Smith, a loss of once wasn't Elliott. That's I'm rod Smith goes backwards. But again that interior front when you're a three four your nose tackle has to be a animal inside. And settle on pain is bitten at for the Washington Redskins defense. Tim settle twenty one years old rookie out of Virginia. Tech look sharp here in the early going. Rod Smith stays on the field Zeke Elliott getting through these last couple place three receivers stacked in a triangle to the right of Prescott. Takes the snap. Steps up. The pocket hit releases it as he's hit. Gallup is gonna take it down twenty yard line picking up. The course dad for the Cowboys at twelve yard gain. A great job by Prescott to avoid the pressure and get it off the gallon for the first down the poppy collapses, but his six to two hundred twenty five frame didn't allow him to go through all with guy to defender draped on his back to gala for easy touch easy. Completion Prescott bid sacked once. He's been sacked thirty five times this year. Second behind Eli manning for most of the National Football League. But he was able to avoid it there. And now we have. Two minute warning seven seven is the score. So we've reached.
Matthew Berry's top waiver wire adds headlined by Dak Prescott, Josh Adams and Anthony Miller
"Is perhaps the lease refined thrower they'll face during their schedule this year. Put such a bad defense. That's a brutal defense. And honestly the falcons again this game is in Atlanta. So we expect the falcons spill to put up some points on Dallas. So I think this could be there's a little bit of shootout appeal here as well. And just to your point about that Prescott. So add Atlanta this week field. But then home to Washington home to the saints home to Philadelphia three straight home games at Indian week fifteen week sixteen the championship game in many leagues home to Tampa Bay. And then if he played an ESPN Stanley which goes to week seventeen at the giant it is a really favorable schedule coming up here for Dak Prescott here each of the next six games indoors or retractable roof as well. So good good. Good conditions to your point. He started rushing more. I think the I think having Amari Cooper, just stretching the field opened things up for that. And not only does it a talented pass catcher for. But also just opens up the field. Allows more running lanes for Zeke Elliott. Helps set up play action better helps you know running lanes for for Dax. So I think he is not only a very viable streamer this week. But I think is a viable top twelve guy the rest of the year. I mentioned this point yesterday on the show that after next week by week no longer thing.

"Now. You'll remember obviously one of the plays the game. The Cowboys in Philadelphia Zeke Elliott hurdled goodness gracious. The world is already starting to poster. Is this young man Zeke Elliott Zeke had his fair share of hurdles certainly as as it als- Cowboys running back, but I think the one that he had in Philly was without question. His most impressive on his young career. And it's true. The Cowboys did not score a touchdown. A lot of people kind of set the Zeke Elliott unable to punch it into the end zone. And I understand, you know, you always want seven points instead of three. There is no explanation for why the Cowboys could not score on that drive. You think about the Cowboys also scored touched on after late in van rashes interception. Those are moments that you have to score toge sends those are moments that you have to come away with seven points because those opportunities those gifts if you wanna call them gifts don't. Come around all that often. So it certainly was disappointing to see the Cowboys only kick field goals there. And you also think about it the common on periscope says that would have been the best play ever if it had been touched on if that had been a touchdown for Elliot in the words of Papa Ocho who will be on July later on in the week when we're over in Atlanta getting ready to watch the Cavs take on the falcons that would have been an SPA play. If Zeke Elliott scored a touchdown on that play that would have been nominated for an Espy that would have been nominated for awesome NFL honors. It would have just been on real. And while the Cowboys certainly was unfortunate that they did not punch it in those circumstances. I was surprised that we were all surprised shops. The Cowboys managed to punch it in at the end of the game two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. As we all know that was very impressive. I think also the fact that Cavs got a touchdown late in the first half was very impressive to. So there was a lot of good. There was definitely some bad from the Cowboys. But if you can win a game on your playing bad. That's that's what good football teams do not necessarily trying to say. The Cowboys themselves are good football team. But it was it was not good comment on periscope from Bill says the Cowboys have left a lot of points on the field recently. I agree. You think about the Monday night game last week seven days ago against the Tennessee titans. Cowboys left a lot of points on that field. And it came back to buy them as they lost that game. But thankfully, that was not the case in Philadelphia is something that I thought was very interesting. We waited to go late today on OSHA live. We waited for Jason GARRETT'S press conference where he addressed the media following the big win in Philadelphia. Jason garrett. I know this is going to shop, you all was not in a mood to celebrate was not in a mood to, you know, throw a party Jason Garrett maintain his monotone robotic sort of mannerisms just focused on the next task at hand focused on, you know, the Atlanta, Falcons, etc. Blah, blah, blah. But something that was very interesting. And we broke down the press conference excuse me for your blog on the boys.
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says he explained OT punt decision to Jerry Jones
"Felt like that point in the game. The way our defense was playing, the idea was dependent down there. Chris did a great job with the punt the ball in the ten yard line and hopefully make us stop and you win the game coming back here the way with the game winning field goal. So one of my pet peeves is when we criticise coaches, fourth-down decisions based on the result. For example, Frank Reich last week went for, it didn't work out. So he got roasted earlier in this very game. Bill O'Brien with a near the goal line didn't work out and he got roasted, but you can look at the process and criticize that as well. Bill O'Brien's play calling in the red zone that entire game was, shall we say, puke tastic. And in this case he clearly should have gone for it because of the resources available to him. Dak Prescott quarterback who is successful with a quarterback, sneak in that game. Zeke Elliott that offense of line. When you have all of those pieces you go. Also, guts, menas, beloved Seahawks. At the end of the game, the Rams went Ford and it was a lot of talk about how courageous they were forgotten this much distance with their quarterback just pushing forward because so many of the coaches in this league or satisfied with coward ball. But if you're going to install as your coach, Jason Garrett because you. Want as the owner to be the owner who can say things afterward, the criticize him, you can't be too surprised that your puppet coaches a little meek and big situations. Well, if I were, he must. I looking for a job right away because now he's some the JJ that's it looks like a chicken in front of j. That's right. That's right. Cheating. Can you say that. He already did.

"The passing game is running game. I honestly I could see in Texas being a Super Bowl game. Well, I worry about the Cowboys in their defense and worried about the Cowboys and they're. Wide receivers because with with Dez Bryant gone and JR went and gone to us losses. I'm not sure a team can can overcome will the Cowboys. They relied. So heavily on Zeke Elliott last year, they were defeated ninety nine hundred thirty in the first three games without Zeke Elliot to start the season. Which is I mean, that's terrible. So they get really shows that even when they had desks Bryant and Jason Witten they had to rely on the running game. It's just I I don't think the Cowboys are going to have the best season.

Murray's single season rush record is in trouble that eight how of the Cowboys now that eighteen forty eight is in serious jeopardy because I believe he'll get somewhere between three fifty. Four hundred carries a season and he'll be somewhere between four and a half, maybe even five yards. So he could easily approach that two thousand yard burying Zeke Elliott is going to be a monster. Scott. Thank you for opening that door for me because I'm going to run through the door. You just open. I'm going to go you several better on this one. I'm gonna. I remind you that we're approaching our to your aniversary undisputed, our partnership. We welcome Ginny, the partnership, but two years on September six. Soon after we launched two years ago, I started predicting that Russell Westbrook would average a triple double for that twenty sixty day any seventeen season and he did. So I'm about to make another prediction. I believe that if all goes well, obviously health plays a bigger factor, bigger role often in football than it doesn't basketball. But if a bunch of people stay healthy for the Dallas Cowboys offense including most of all Zeke, you'll Elliot. I believe he will break Eric Dickerson's NFL single Watson, rushing record of two thousand one hundred and five yards. Eric, obviously a contributor here on. Not like me predicting that, but I am predicting that because it all all the planets have aligned for this to happen this year in the back friendly offense that you suggest. But I'm going to point out that that year in LA for the Rams that was nineteen Eighty-four. Remember that was thirty four years ago record. I remember it has endured for thirty four years because in those days it was more regular for a back. The lead back of the team. In this case, Eric Dickerson of the Los Angeles Rams at that point to have more carries than the team through pass. So he had really hundred seventy nine carries and all their passers and they had three different ones play mostly Jeff camp out of Dartmouth university, which is why he was running the ball, but they only three hundred and fifty eight total passes. So three seventy. Nine runs to three.

I mean, who was it? Gonna stop. Who was it that was thinking about signing Dez Bryant in everything that we know about this bright and them knowing things about this Bryant that we do not know which was going to think about signing then be like, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Now, these tweets and we did have them calling Sean the snake. And now according Drake. Yeah. So there is something to be gained from also don't think he's necessarily wrong. Well, if I were him and my owner is saying that I can still play in the league, but you don't want me to play here. Then you're telling me by definition. The problem is in my ability to play, and that would make me wonder who decided to get me up out of thing about the desert and Dallas divorce, though, is that could simply say he wasn't worth twelve and a half there, but they didn't ask them to come back for less. So they did not another cowboy Zeki Elliott because after Cowboys VP Stephen Jones suggested players could be cut if they didn't stain for the national anthem. Reporters had questions. For their star running back. Zeke Elliott. Listen to that. Tuned chose to stay together. In our decision. Souls coats, you show. We're going to stand one. That's not not anyone else who may choose the mail that anathema them, but would it would welcome was medicine. We stand. What do you make of that? Remove the water carry the water. That's what I think about that water. I mean, I don't know what other conclusions that there is to reach from what it is that he is saying they're in. I mean, the whole, the Dallas Cowboys. We stand for the national anthem. What else do you do? But you're not gonna give me out here about your about your strong morality based on the national Br, what will be talking about what you last year? This is a hell of a place to draw the line, but it's also why he has to draw that line in that place because he's a man with no leverage no matter what he thinks he didn't have much choice other than to ride with year. No, his opinions are compromised based on what his owner had done for him. It's hard to imagine Zeke Elliott totally doing the one eighty against his owner, but it does raise the question of when you say you're America's team, which America are you talking about? Because here now is the quarterback deck Prescott chiming in with some sound of zone, never protest. I've never protest during the anthem and I don't think that's the time where the venue to do so the game, football's always brought me such peace and I think it does the same for a lot of people. A lot of people playing the game. A lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the to the stadium to the field to the game takes away, it takes away from there. Away from the joy into the the love that football brings a lot of people. I mean, I am in favor of new methods of communication, protest messaging, right? I'm not saying we are not saying that kneeling must be the thing, but this does not sound like a person who is engaging with the substance underneath because they're not describing it in any detail, right. Using those those words that make this a safe space for people who are uncomfortable with such idea, but it's worth noting the Prescott is now rich, right? Is worth noting the Prescott is working off of a rookie deal. He is a do who has no leverage, right? Like I have tabled a lot of my visceral reactions to the way that they responded to this understanding of the fact that these are two very young dudes. We're asking a lot of them were asking them to stand up and fight against the machine in that place. However, they need to be honest about what it is they're doing. They're carrying water of the franchise in the course of doing this, right? It's not a good look in a broader sense. It is all stand thing that they are doing..

And I think the new modern, the, the new, I think four net kind of his outside this category because he's a little bit of a throwback. But you have to me like the modern running back right now. Right is what bell is two hundred and thirty pound guy. You can play all three down. So it's almost like you get both Marshall Faulk and Adrian. Peterson like that. That'd be the ideal like you get a bit of both, you know, and that's what saquon Barkley was coming in. That's what Alvin albuque- Amar's a little smaller, but that's sort of the idea with him. That's absolutely what Zeke Elliott was. That's what Joe mixing was. That's what Todd Gurley has become. He wasn't really coming out of Georgia, but that's what he's become. That's the new prototype is a guy who can use them both the passing game and the running game. And you know, I think the most interesting way to look at this is one of the reasons these guys don't get paid, and it's going to be fascinating when I mean girly goes to the market and girl is going to be interesting because Brandin cooks just got sixteen million per in girly. I'm not taking dime less than than what cook Scott, right. The interesting thing about it is and I know this part of the Cowboys thinking when they when they drafted Zeke, it's like well, under the current rookie system where there's control on how much these guys can make you get the guys prime at a really affordable rate because it's it's maybe the only position. Where if you draft a guy in the first round, you're probably going to get most of his prime during the rookie contract, right? Yes. You're probably going to get most of that and that players prime might start right away. Zeke Elliott won. The rushing title is as a rookie I, you know, I I don't think it's unfair to think that saquon Barkley could go for fourteen or fifteen hundred yards. Todd Gurley coming off of an ACL and missing the first few games and Saint Louis as a rookie was dynamite like these guys like can come in and contribute right away. And when you draft him high, get them on that rookie deal. You're probably going to get like a pretty good chunk of his prime before you have to reopen. Yeah, and I was just looking at girly real quick next year. It's an option for nine point, six, three million, and you got to think that's going to go up. So maybe it doesn't get to a lady on bell number, but maybe with a Todd Gurley if he jumped from say nine to thirteen in that first. Year, and then later from there that can end up being a pretty decent contract, but it almost feels like the bell situation is not going to move the market as much as girlies will two years from now. Yeah, and that's, like I said, that sort of a tough situation for the Rams because like and I don't, you know, I think there is a little bit of a chemistry experiment going on there, and there's going to be a lot on Sean McVay to figuring it out with those different personalities there. But to me, the one like thing that you look at now is they couldn't allow the Sammy Watkins situation to play out again where they try to hide pick for a guy and then watch them walk. So they had to take care of Brandin cooks, well, then Brandin cooks was affected by Sammy Watkins because Sammy Watkins got sixteen million per at Coke's has been a more productive player. So now cooks, get sixteen point, two million purview following me. Yes. If you're Todd Gurley now you're saying, well, you just brought this guy in and I was the offensive player.

"Affecting them wins and losses for that team we saw it last season he was out for six games dow's didn't look good at all that prescott regressed he needed he needed zeke elliott out there okay so that just does brian isn't that player for the cowboys anymore and i just think they're so if you're thinking okay he's not putting up the numbers he wants did and he's probably not going to cause the offense we run in order to cater to dak prescott is not putting up the numbers getting paid sixteen and a half million and he doesn't really affect a win win or loss total for our team do you really want to keep a guy like that i say no i think thomas you would say no right the thing is best for both parties if you cut a guy like desert bryant let them go off possibly you hang out with the team like tennessee i know the rams out there licking the niners pot that's a that's a solid option right third jimmy garoppolo does have the arm and i think he is a guy who could throw guys open the one of my favorite because they're locking obviously appear coming back and then marquees go having that breakout your last year got that good contract earned that contract i feel but those those are both more like mid mid route mid level receivers obviously goodwin's speed and take the top off the defense but i feel like i mean obviously that small more small framed does is that big frame i mean he's he's all of six two but he's he's got that big big frame good hand size i mean he can pull the ball down like you said jimmy garoppolo is going to be that guy who's going to throw people open so does the niners that's my hot take does the niners actually it makes sense there too because the fact that does where to get cut by the cowboys and against his speculations as isis filling up beside me.
