Default Ezeeek to be suspended ...Tyron Smith sitting with back soreness

this is how it starts,,One guy retires another player shifts out of a position he thrived in to fill the void...your left tackle has a bulging disc that he put off surgery, your Star running back has to sit the 1st 3 to 4 games of the year,,,its like pulling a thread,,,,but no worries in big D their defense looks Great!

Elliott will miss a couple of games and be a wrecking ball behind one of the best o-lines in football for the rest of the season.

Assume they're going to be very good, and that the Eagles are going to have to be better to beat them. If they fall apart, fine. But don't assume it.

I honestly don't care what the Cowboys do. The Eagles have a pretty good looking team, with one glaring weakness. Stay healthy and take care of business. The division is very winnable.

I have to think we trade for or pick up a veteran CB before Sept. The rest of the team seems very solid on paper; just need Carson to take a big step forward in year 2!

Yup, Cowboys are going to be good, but we should be pretty good, too. The corner situation is scary, but let's wait to see how terrible they are when players are allowed to rush the qb for real.

The Dallas D is TERRIBLE, they could be the worst in the NFC and they lost 3 starters for some illegal shit as usual which makes them worse, if Zeke gets 2 games that is 2 losses, start 0-2 is hard to come back from.

Their defense sucked last year, we were told. They went 13-3. Their o-line is still top three in the league.

The good news is, so is ours. So fuck them. Obsessing over that team makes us look like chumps.

I agree with your take, Duck. In the end this won't matter much. The only division opponent they play in their first 6 games is the Vagiants. The other teams they play in theirt first six games aren't super good. It's easy to see that they could win a good share of those games without Elliott and have Elliott back fresh for the remaining part of the season.

Basically Eagles got to take care of their own business.

Default If he appeals like Lane did

he might end up playing the 1st 4 games and then sit,, but Morris looked good,,I'm not buying into the Blue Koolaid yet.

True, but this is a different type of appeal than a drug retest is.

I'm pretty sure Mr. McMahon will work it out with Jerruh.

What am I missing? They're acting like the first six games are a foregone conclusion. Doesn't he have the same right to an appeal that Lane had? Isn't there a legal process that he'll be allowed to play through?

Or are the Cowboys advising him to not appeal to get it out of the way now, rather than lose him mid season in the middle of the playoff run and keep the story in the headlines?

Whenever the suspension comes, the thing to watch is how Prescott plays. That's where we find out how good he is or isn't. Should be a telling stretch.

Default I found this , little too much info to post the whole thing

https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/08/11/ez...-legal-process

Here's the article for those law talkin guys!


Timing is also relevant in this analysis. The Cowboys’ first regular season game will be played on Sept. 10. This leaves Elliott slightly less than one month to try to eradicate the pending suspension before it precludes him from playing in an actual game. If Elliott’s potential case hasn’t been resolved in court before Sept. 10, he would likely then petition a judge to issue a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order. If such a remedy were granted, it would essentially suspend the six-game suspension until Elliott has his day in court.

Inunctions are considered extraordinary remedies and petitions for them are usually rejected. Among other points, Elliott would need to convince a judge that he would suffer irreparable harm if he misses any games. Elliott would emphasize that he would never be able to get those games back. In response, the NFL would stress that Elliott could be reimbursed for lost wages plus interest if he later prevailed in court. As an advantage for the NFL, courts are often skeptical that a particular harm is “irreparable” if money damages can later repair it.
