If the Dallas Cowboys lose Ezekiel Elliott to suspension, Alfred Morris can save the day. Okay, before you start throwing beer bottles at me, let me remind you that very few people were optimistic when I wrote Can Dak Prescott save the day if the Cowboys lose Tony Romo last year. It’s never a popular subject to talk about replacing a super-talented playmaker with a player that hasn’t proven what he can do on this team. Ezekiel Elliott is a special player. What he does as a running back isn’t always evident. His toughness, his ability to escape tackles, and his home run speed once he gets in space are all things that aren’t easily replaced. And while Alfred Morris will far short of what Zeke can do on several attributes, that doesn’t mean he cannot be successful in this offense.
Morris is a good runner. He’s smart.
