On paper, the Dallas Cowboys boast one of the most complete rosters in the NFL. They also brought in former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy to steady the ship as owner Jerry Jones continued his pursuit of a Lombardi Trophy. The last time the Cowboys played in a Super Bowl game was back in 1996, almost 25 years ago.
Hopefully, McCarthy can guide his superstar squad to the promised land in the years to come. The likes of Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, and Michael Gallup will once again be crucial to the Cowboys’ playoff hopes in 2020. They have also brought in some promising rookies in the form of Trevon Diggs and CeeDee Lamb.
Another player who will once again be in the headlines is seasoned running back, Ezekiel Elliott.
Experienced NFL running back Ezekiel Elliott made an appearance with “Shan and RJ” on 105.3 The Fan. He was asked if he would be okay to split carries with a teammate if coach McCarthy required him to do so. He replied, “If they ever came to me and asked me to split carries, I’m going to do it. I’m gonna do whatever they ask me to do to win. That’s my No. 1 thing.”
“I love being the bell cow. I love getting the rock 30 times a game and I do. But whatever this team needs me to do to win that’s what I’m going to do. I’ve been pretty durable through my career. … 300 carries every season … haven’t seemed to be slowing down yet,” Elliott said.
Since joining in 2016, Zeke has rushed for 5,400+ yards in 56 starts for the Dallas-based franchise. He will look to add to that tally when the season starts next month. Head coach Mike McCarthy will make his Dallas Cowboys bow on September 14, 2020. The Cowboys start their 2020 season with an away game clash against the Los Angeles Rams at the SoFi Stadium.
