Ezekiel Elliott about to become victim of NFL’s confused domestic violence agenda – Myles Stedman, RealSport
When mock trial meets football, things go bad, Stedman explains.

If the NFL’s reported plans for Ezekiel Elliott are true, which would involve a “short suspension” for a crime he was not found guilty of, then they have truly lost sight of the meaning and responsibility to their own punishments.

Perhaps it’s too late for the League. After all, they’re already frequent victims of their own stupid precedents, and, if ESPN’s Adam Schefter is correct, they’re about to play themselves for fools again.

No. There is never a wrong time to achieve justice, and the only way that will be found here is by the NFL dropping their investigation and letting an innocent man play. If they’ve found anything, hand it over to the police.

Let’s hope the League’s redundant, self-righteous, kangaroo court ends when Ezekiel Elliott’s punishment is unjustly handed down. This is an organization so scared of its horrific history of domestic violence, and the criminal potential of its partners, that it would punish a man with no conviction of his wrongdoing. That is so sad, on so many levels.

Cowboys News: NFL’s “bizarre” handling of Ezekiel Elliott case under increasing scrutiny – OCC, Blogging The Boys
In yesterday’s news links, we took a detailed at the reporting surrounding the Elliott case, including this take from Mike Florio of PFT, who writes that Roger Goodell’s mishandling of yet another investigation further damages the NFL’s credibility.

So what happens with Elliott? It’s possible that Friday’s report from Adam Schefter of ESPN was the product not of an exasperated Elliott camp accepting the inevitable but a deliberate leak from the league office aimed at gauging public opinion (along with the possible wrath of Jerry) before making a final decision. Whatever the motivation, a decision must come ASAFP if the league hopes for its internal investigation process to preserve any credibility whatsoever.

Why Alfred Morris should back up Ezekiel Elliott if he gets suspended – Danny Phantom, Blogging The Boys
Phantom makes the case for Alfred Morris.

Morris is a player that does well in a bell-cow role. He gets better as the game goes on as he finds his rhythm. His three straight 1,000 yards seasons weren’t a fluke. He didn’t suffer some game-altering injury that has effected his performance. In fact, he’s the anti-McFadden when it comes to durability. The guy is always available.

Prediction: McFadden would win my vote as the RB to spell Elliott on a series or two a game, but if the Cowboys need a 20+ carry player, Morris is the guy. The Cowboys can contract out someone else for third-down duties, but they need a workhorse like Morris to drive the running game.


Babe Laufenberg: ‘Most ridiculous thing’ from Dak’s rookie year; – SportsDay Staff
Laufenberg recently talked Dak Prescott on 105.3-FM The Fan.

As I said last year, every hurdle that Dak faced, he just leapt over it comfortably. He hadn’t beaten this team , he hadn’t done this, he hadn’t won on the road – can he go to Green Bay and beat Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau? He did that. He just passed every test last year. So, to me, there’s just going to be a natural progression.

That being said, he’s not going to have as good a statistical year. I can tell you that right now. You are not going to go through an entire season like he did last year, and finish with …
