The Cowboys won’t have their star running back to start the season, but how much will they really miss him?
I hear fans proclaiming, “the Cowboys can win without Zeke.” They’re right. Dallas can win games without their star running back, but it won’t be easy. In fact, it’s going to be harder than a lot of people realize.
Losing Ezekiel Elliott hurts the Dallas Cowboys. Over the next several weeks there are going to be attempts to calm everyone down by mentioning that the team has two former 1,000 yard rushers as backups on the team. The running attack is, by no means, in any sort of trouble. The great offensive line is still there, Dak Prescott is still there, and the Cowboys have an assortment of weapons on offense. And while the backup running backs should still help the team move the chains, it cannot be overstated that there is a noticeable talent loss without Zeke.
