Why the Cowboys must part ways with Ezekiel Elliott

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ The Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott is a topic that will dominate discussion in the early offseason. When the Dallas Cowboys selected Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, it was met with a lot of discord.

Teams don’t typically invest high draft capital in a position that is so easily interchangeable and where comparable...

Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers keeps them out of the NFC Championship Game for the 27th year in a row, and if the team wants to halt that streak before it reaches 28 then they are going to have to do something differently in 2023.
