    Cleveland has a tandem of Chubb and Hunt which is more sustainable and they also have some good receivers and TE’s, it’s a PA heavy offence but they are not totally dependent on one player at the most injurious position in all of sports being healthy and rolling every week.

    Dallas had the best receiving corp in the league and it opens up the run for them rather than the other way around

    Any team that builds their offence around a running back at this point is doomed to failure. They will never be healthy enough to sustain success. The only exception is Henry, he is a total freak, but Tennessee is not good enough elsewhere to take advantage

    I said the both had great back ups......and Funny the only time Dallas is good is if Zeke E.....is either leading the League in Rushing ....which He has done 2, or 3 times ,or in the Top 5. Am I making this up???

    They both have good Offensive Lines as well which makes an enormous difference.

    If Zeke disappeared tomorrow I doubt the Cowboys would miss a beat, you can’t stack the box against Dallas because those receivers will kill you. It’s opening everything up for Zeke and Pollard

    What Pittsburgh had been doing with Najee the past two weeks is not sustainable, you can’t give a guy that many touches and expect him to play a full season.

    Passing the ball and stopping the pass is all that really matters for the better teams in the NFL. That’s why this Browns team won’t win a Super Bowl

    Cowboys weren’t good last year because Dak got hurt and their secondary was really poor

    If you think Zeke is driving their improvement this year I really don’t know what to say to you. He has the worst contract in the entire NFL and the Cowboys would cut him in the morning if they could get out of it.

    It’s not what I hear it is what I think. If Cowboy fans think Zeke is the driving force behind their improved performance this year then good for them. Dak, Cooper, Lamb, Schultz, the OLine and a much improved D are why the Cowboys are doing well, the running backs are a complement, living off light boxes. Zeke’s contract is a total joke and I expect they will untangle themselves from it as soon as it is feasible. They gave him so much guaranteed money that it is going to be a while however.

    Browns are a different story, they are built around Chubb and Hunt and the play action they bring. It’s great until you are down 14 in the second half against the Chiefs in the playoffs and can’t run the ball any more.

    The two teams that made the Super Bowl last year has one thing in common, the running game was almost a non factor in their offence and they had elite quarterbacks and receiving talent. It’s a passing league now

    Dang.... what can I say 2 make You stop.
    I said OK.
    LoL.
    Still You keep going.
    I guess I'm making Up that Zeke and Chubb is in top 5 in Rushing this Year. All I said is These(brown, and cryboys) 2 teams are built on their running game, and somehow You get all the way into....Who the Cowboys want and don't want, and who was in the SB last Year.....a bit of moving the goal post....Hmmm???
    Yet....I still Believe Chubbs , and Zeke are in the top 5 in Rushing....

    Sorry @S.T.D I wasn’t trying to be an a****le or move goalposts.

    My view is that it is a QB-driven passing league, and trying to build a championship team around a running game and especially around one running back at this stage is never going to work.

    The last couple of Super Bowl winners were not in any way dependent on running the ball. I think that is significant, and is an indication of where the league is going.

    From a Steeler perspective I love Najee but I think he will be a wasted pick. By the time the team is in a position to compete again he will be burned out from this workload
