    He had a ton of yards after first contact in college. Teams just kept stacking the box against him in college. I was pretty excited they got Bell that draft year.

    And was 3rd in yds per carry per any back with 240 Carries or more. Only ones higher were Gurley and hunt. So dont act like they were just running him into the ground and that was why. And LMAO Connor was the only back with over 30 carries Sunday so dont act like he was doing something Zeke didnt.

    So explain what does someone leading in Carries per game mean? He lead the nfl in rushing as a rookie without doing that and it seems you are trying to submize he only led the nfl in yds per game because he led the nfl in carries per game which is laughable.

    Sure sounds like Bell wants nothing to do with leading the league in carries when he eventually returns.

    even so best pure runner, still not true. i am a huge OSU fan and yes zeke was good and is good but no i dont think he is the best pure runner in the league, nor do the stats show it. he had a very good rookie year but since then he has dropped off, just as many before him. everyone of them have good games against some not so good defenses that add to the stat numbers. so showing them doesn't tell the story. he doesn't carry the team when the qb is struggling just as last week showed. dallas spent a lot of time and money to build an o-line. murray was the flavor of the year too behind them. good years happen many years in a row. zeke is good but not the best pure runner in the league. :cool:

    Zeke's stats are impressive, even with that oline. Teams stack the box cause they know Dak can't throw. Teams just play the WRs 1v1 against the Cowboys.

    Lol the stats do show it. Like I said was top 10 in yards last yr while missing 6 games and with that suspension cloud over his head that caused distractions and for him to miss alot of practice/training time. Last week he played decent considering they literally have zero receivers so teams completely stack the box against him.

    Bostic and Davis and I've been skeptical on Davis. So far so good....

    I was not skeptical of Davis. Bostic is another matter all together.

    Just like with Watt last year, I pulled the trigger and ordered a Connor jersey. Kid has got to much heart to not pull for him.

    He's been a bright spot on an otherwise cloudy season so far, that's for sure.
