The man has two years left on his contract and he’s going to hold out F that coach Belichick would never ever allow that next man up

    Cyprian Cox Reply

    Hey Steven before I saw your post I was thinking the same thing. Enough is enough with this B.S. Let him hold out. Teams need to start drawing a land in the sand. How many championships did Darrelle Revis bring to the Jets as a result of his hold out.

    If you think he’s better than Alvin Kamara you’re dumb

Could you envision a Rookie Running Back Wage Scale?

M Hightower Reply

People act like RBs die after 4 years in the league.. Why hasnt anyone mentioned the great RBs that played for many years at a high level. Adrian Peterson, Frank Gore, Marshawn Lynch, Ladamian Tomlinson, Marshall Faulk.. All bellcows!! Go ask Buffalo how they feel about letting Marshawn Lynch go after 4 seasons

    surferboymikey Reply

    They don’t die but if you have a star RB usually the peak of their play is around year 5 to year 6 so if he waits he could miss out on his big payday. It’s the same for the QB who had to get that big deal usually coming off of the rookie contract.

    @juniorimac I feel ya but there is only 1 RB out of 50 like Zeke

    M Hightower Reply

    @R. William Comm Yup I agree 100% with you. I think Zeke is a generational RB so you’re right they need to pay him. I think the way to use him is keeping a young RB behind him and actually giving that RB some time in the game. That way you dont have a “RB by committee” per say but youre not wearing Zeke down too quick and you can elongate your investment in Zeke. I just dont see why a team would want to give away a player that analysts are comparing to emmitt smith, Erick Dickerson, AP, Ladamion tomlinson, I mean some of the greatest to run the ball

    M Hightower Reply

    @Jackson Wheeler Thats not Lynch’s fault though.. Its pretty much been proven that Buffalo should have built their team around Lynch and the Defense just like Seattle did. Seattle went on to the SB, Buffalo hasnt been relevant since. and thats even a different situation than dallas. Zeke has proven he is gonna be good in Dallas for 3 years straight. There’s no unknown Zeke is good in Dallas and makes Dak, the oline, amari, and the defense better. Why trade him.

    James Harden The Bearded One Reply

    @Jackson Wheeler what are you talking about dude ths man was over 1000 yards multiple times

Jason Emmons Reply

how is Alvin Kamara not a special running back? He is probably the most talented of them all.

    Eric James Reply

    Jason Emmons facts wtf is he talking about

    Bidwellz9 Reply

    ummm saquon barkley has something to say about that lol

Isamel Madrigal Reply

Just trade him 🤷🏻‍♂️

James Cowan Reply

Let elliot go and keep the o-line strong.

    Ammo and Gear Deals Reply

    Trade him if he is that great. Jimmy got rid of Walker and that worked out pretty well.

Robert Cooper Reply

You really think teams don’t collude on who they should pay?? Not smart

Donny Knepper Reply

This guy who hosts this show, he is good at his job.

    jebadiah fyefye Reply

    Quietly one of the best. Not to mention his cohost Simms is really good too


Christian Mccaffery lol

Marci DeLaO Reply

Go Zeke Go!

Words of Wizdom Reply

Steelers will welcome clowney with open arms. And give him the ryan shazier treatment. We would love to have a top level veteran defender

Chase McBrien Reply

Zeke has the most all purpose yards in the NFL since he has been playing.

I don’t see the Cowboys going far without him. The longer he sits, then the less likely the Cowboys make the post season.

jason m. Reply

Let him walk. He’s a great talent. But you can get great RBs in late rounds or free agency. Besides if there’s no o-line, unless it’s Barry Sanders, doesn’t matter. And Zeke is no Barry Sanders.

Kenneth Pleasant Reply

Ezekiel Elliott has little leverage. Much of that is because of what happened to
Todd Gurley. The things that he has done off the field doesn’t help his case.
Elliott is now in the top two of running backs in the NFL. What Dak Prescott critics
ignores, is that when Elliott sat of Week 17, Prescott passed for 387 yards and a
career high 4 touchdown passes.

Ben Houston Reply

Clowney ain’t worth what he’s askin for. Simple as that.

DewestMusic 243 Reply

Sign Dak and Amari, trade Zeke!

Gage Byers Reply

Dak Prescott should at least be an 84 overall

terry moody Reply

Hey Zeke, this it what it boils down to! It is your troubled past of getting into trouble. I have followed the Cowboys since the sixties. It is by your own doings by getting into trouble. You need to straighten up, and fly right. Man you will never be as great as Emit Smith, the way you are going, getting into trouble all the time! You got into all this trouble on your on, and they don’t trust you! Do the right thing, and be a man for God’s sake

That’s so awesome Mike! Glad you got your A/C back!
