Dallas Cowboys’ RB Ezekiel Elliott Hits Back At Anonymous Coach’s Harsh Criticism

July 10, 2020 11:30 pm

ESPN are continuing with their campaign of ranking the top players in the NFL before the 2020 season starts. They came up with a list of Top-five QBs earlier this week.

Super Bowl LIV MVP Patrick Mahomes topped that list, followed by NFL veterans Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers in second and third spots. Houston Texans’ Deshaun Watson came in fourth while New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees took the fifth spot.

They released a list of Top-10 running backs as well. NY Giants’ Saquan Barkley came in at number one followed by Carolina Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey at number two.

Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott was ranked third on the list. However, a certain anonymous NFL offensive coach feels that Elliott should not have made the cut at all. Here’s what the Cowboys RN had to say in response to that.

Ezekiel Elliott obviously did not take that statement lightly, and rightly so. The 24-year old first draft pick has been impactful in the four years that he’s spent with the Cowboys.


Zeke rushed for 1,357 yards last season and registered 12 TDs while playing with Dak Prescott and the Cowboys. He’s tipped for a strong season with the Jerry Jones-owned franchise this year as well.

We reckon that he will take all this negative energy and channel it on the football field for sure.

Ezekiel helps out fellow Texans amidst ongoing Coronavirus crisis

Ezekiel Elliott is known for his charitable acts. The Ohio State-graduate proved what a fine young man he is once again by helping raise $85,000 in funds for an NGO in Houston.

Zeke wrote a check for that amount to the North Texas Food Bank organization. These funds will help provide meals for hundreds of Texans that are affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

“I am grateful to give back to the city that’s given me so much. Am thankful for @centretx and YOU my fans for raising enough money to help feed over 400,000 families in North Texas this summer.

“I hope that this money helps provide much needed relief for those that are currently challenged. I’m looking forward to teaming up with @centretx and @northtexasfoodbank in the future to keep providing meals for those in need in our communities,” Ezekiel wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.
