Jerry, owner of the Dallas Cowboys Jones and his illusion on the team knows no limits. We’ve seen it over the years and Jones reminded us of it during an interview on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas earlier this week.

“The toll that Zeke takes in defense with his power is of great impact”, Jones said. “Not finesse, but a hard-nosed kick that we’re trying to establish.”

Baby, please. Jerry, you’re not fooling anyone. We know you need to find a way to justify that contract you volunteered to Ezekiel Elliott a couple of years ago before finally giving Dak Prescott his big deal. Elliott has become overpaid mostly glorified full-back. Yes, he’s a great defender in the backfield, but the running backs don’t get $ 90 million contracts due to their blocking prowess.

Elliott has two 100+ yard games this season, which took place over consecutive weeks in October. Since week 5, in which Zeke rushed 110 yards, he hasn’t even managed to break 70 yards on the ground in any game. From week 6-15, Elliott has 410 yards on the run at 3.5 per transport. Now, this may not be the kind of production Jones envisioned when Zeke signed his $ 90 million contract. Yet Jones dared to say he paid too much for Prescott at the press conference where they announced Dak’s offseason deal.

Dak may not have a P.robowl season, but Elliot was basically replaced by Tony Pollard this year. At this point, the fact that Elliott is the designated return for Dallas is more like a Lifetime Achievement Award than anything else. I’m not saying Pollard should take charge of everything because he’s not that kind of running back. Zeke appears to be built for pounding 20+ runs a week if needed, but his body seems to have forgotten that, and the Cowboys have certainly noticed it. Elliot dropped to 14 carries per game this year. Elliott has only hit 14 rushes twice in his last seven Dallas games.

Time to face the hard truth, Jerry. You will leave Elliott sooner than you ever imagined. This signing was a swing and a miss. You can’t keep telling us about its impact when it hasn’t really impacted a game in what feels like two years. And with all those other big deals on the roster, it will be time to switch to someone either way. Go ahead and rip that B offit’s atid off and get it over with. You will be relieved when it is over.
