LOL! I love Alfred Morris and miss him a lot, but to compare him to Emmit Smith is laughable! If he was on the level of Smith, there is no way the Redskins would have ever let him go.

Morris has real troubles catching the ball and horrible at picking up the blitz. All he does well is run.

McFaddin can do all those other things but doesn't have good moves/cutting ability. He's fast straight away (or was when he was drafted).

Both are a definite fall off in all departments compared to EZE. And where Zeke excels is yards after contact and getting those tough yards. I don't think we'll be seeing Garrett going for it as much on 4th down.

If coaching gets creative maybe that will get us over the hump but if they call it like EZE is in there then we're in trouble.

Apparently, Jerry Jones is threatening to sue the other owners if Roger Goodell gets a contract extension. He's angry because Elliot got suspended.

Interesting. I have zero sympathy for Jones after he gave his full support for Goodell during the sham that was deflategate.

You notice that the ONLY one defending Jones is a Cowboys fan.

According to PFT, there is a bylaw that says that the Commisioner can strip an owner of his team if he is considered to be doing things that are detrimental to the league. Goodell MAY have the last laugh.
