Cowboys players not worrying about Ezekiel Elliott news

As the storm clouds gather around Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, his Cowboys teammates either know something the rest of us don’t or they’re in denial.

He’s going to be there. That’s all I’m going to tell you,” wide receiver Dez Bryant said, via Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

At the moment, Bryant might appear to be the only one who thinks Elliott’s going to avoid any league punishment for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Or he would be if so many of his teammates weren’t also on that same train.

“I think we’re confident it’s going to work out, and he’s said it all along to us as teammates,” tight end Jason Witten said. “You know the guy’s a remarkable player. Big, strong, athletic; he’s smart, he’s tough. He’s good out of the backfield.

“That’s an area of strength of our team with those running backs, but certainly he’s one of the best in the league. You’d miss somebody like that if he is out, but we fully anticipate he’ll be out there and playing and continue to grow as a player on and off the field.”

Of course, the Cowboys are probably just taking their cues from owner Jerry Jones, who has said for months he does not anticipate a suspension for Elliott, stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident with an old girlfriend. Elliott has denied it, and no charges were filed by the Columbus, Ohio prosecutors.

  1. “You know the guy’s a remarkable player. Big, strong, athletic; he’s smart, he’s tough.”

    One of these words doesn’t belong here.

  2. There better be Ray Rice type evidence here or Jerry is going to go nuclear if they sit him 6 games based on comments from a scorned girlfriend.

    The NFL is the king of witch hunts…

    No that would be the democrats

  4. “There better be Ray Rice type evidence here or Jerry is going to go nuclear if they sit him 6 games based on comments from a scorned girlfriend.”
    I do believe a better description for her would be ex assaulted girlfriend rather than scorned girlfriend.she is testifying to Goodell personally about events that occured between them and add to her testimony the charge he lecherously pulled down the top of a womans dress and other stupid acts it looks like he will earn a nice six weeks or more vacation from the nfl.what other trouble will he get into while on that vacation.

  5. Hmmm, let’s see who do I want out for 4 games?
    Just gotta ge some girl to make accusations …. profusely.

    Hey it just might be another Ray Rice debacle…. so we suspend anyone who is complained agaist
    This is really becomin a joke on the Elliot case.

    So long…. NfL is becoming such a joke….

    I just may claim Brady pinced my Butt!!

  6. If the Giants can have a player beat his wife on multiple occasions, get arrested and charged and his suspension was only 1 game…………….Trumaine Brock can get arrrested and charged with felony domestic violence…have his charges dropped for “lack of evidence” with no suspension from the league and to my knowledge NO investigation….. how in the world can you give Elliott ANY suspension????

    He was never arrested, he was never charged, not one person other than the accuser says he beat her…..accusers own witness stated she was asked to lie to the police. How do you suspend him at all with Trumaine Brock and Josh Brown accounting for multiple domestic violence incidences, 2 arrrests…..yet only 1 game suspension between the two of them?

    To give a guy 6 games, there has to be so much evidence that he did it that the police should have arrested him. I dont think he should be suspended, but if you HAVE to suspend him, he shouldnt get anything more than what Josh Brown got.

    Defiantly not smart
    ——————

    So is he being defiant by not being smart, or did you mean to say “definitely not smart”?

  8. I feel the same reading comments on this blog as I do when I see the videos of Trump supporters explaining their loyalty. It is the cruelest way of getting angry simpletons to reveal themselves as such–while others turn that into $$$ and the rest of us wonder just what the hell is really going on. You dont know what you dont know. Why do you let some baited blog post, rife with insinuation and innuendo, dupe you into raging at your keyboard? Ask yourself– How do you not realize this is all done for others to make money (clicks=cash, engagement, optics). Yet you take the bait like the dumbest of androids. It is so puzzling. Yet somehow, you feel relief, part of something and thinking your parroted words on a computer screen are transformed into something akin to justice. Think about that.

    Not often you see the word lecherously used. Well done sir.
