Why couldn't Daniel Snyder be stripped of his team for being detrimental to its success?

how can you be consistent when the league doesn't have written standards?

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.
Well said about RBs...coaching and play calling needs to get creative and effective for Boys to get over hump.

This is why Morris got let go by Washington. Gruden wanted running backs that could pick up blitzes and catch passes out of the backfield. These were two issues with Morris. Otherwise, he's great if you run a lot of zone running plays or read-options. That's why Gruden felt Matt Jones was the better back (but soon got rid of him as well.)

That being said, I'd take Morris back in a heartbeat as I think a combination of him and Perine on 1st and 2nd down would be good, along with Thompson being the third down back.

Jerry Jones was told to "cease and desist" by the other owners or face consequences - fines, loss of draft picks, or worse.

In my view, it would be detrimental to the league to let Goodell continue as commissioner.

If anyone tried to take Jerry Jones out as owner, if you thought the domestic violence cases were a news riot, you haven't seen anything yet.

Really? That is seriously a thing?

Wow, never knew that one.

According to Pro Football Talk, Ezekiel Elliot has dropped all of his appeals and will serve his 6 game suspension.
