• Ezekiel Elliott goes all Rocky IV
So, number 21 has reportedly flown out of the country to unplug. I get it. I wish he brought us with him.
But something tells me this guy is in the middle of snow banks hauling logs around. Is this guy planning a big fight, kinda like how Rocky did it in the fourth movie against the Russian?
I don’t know. But I like that story.
Zeke mad? Probably. The three guys who replaced him managed only 65 yards in his absence.
• Prime time embarrassment
Well, here we are folks — the hard stretch. If the Cowboys couldn’t handle an ailing, wounded 4-4 Falcons, how can they trade punches with a winning Eagles team?
But, this is football. The game must be played. Regardless of last week’s outcome, this upcoming game will be Dak Prescott’s biggest game to date.
It’s time to show up, wounded or not.
• What does coaching got to do with it?
Chaz Green was struggling. He wasn’t benched until the fourth period. He did not get help, nor did running backs or tight ends come out of the snap chipping at Adrian Clayborn.
With the game spiraling out of control in the fourth quarter, Dak Prescott was still hustling the ball around with his feet. He was left in harm’s way.
Nah, coaching doesn’t matter. Not at all.
