Ezekiel Elliott rips media over recent questioning of his talent

Ezekiel Elliott has called out the media over recent questioning about his current standing in the NFL as well as how pundits and the like consistently and unfairly pit running backs against another.

The Dallas Cowboys running back fired off a series of tweets Thursday morning in which he expressed his frustration while also providing supporting evidence he believes substantiates why he is one of the best in the league at his position.

Last week, an anonymous NFL coach questioned whether Elliott remains one of the top running backs in the league, suggesting the Cowboys star “doesn’t look as strong anymore” among other criticisms. Elliott fired off a tweet in response to the anonymously expressed skepticism.

It merits noting that Elliott returned to Twitter Thursday morning to point out that he understands to some extent why the media compares and contrasts and question the players they cover. That being said, Elliott pointed out he is his own harshest critic.

Elliott arguably merits being ranked as one of the top running backs in the NFL despite last week’s remarks by an unnamed critic. That being said, Elliott also was slighted somewhat in “Madden 21” ratings, which tabbed him as the fourth-best back in the league.

It remains to be seen whether Elliott reacts to that perceived slight as well.
