The only time he didn’t was in 2017 when he served a six-game suspension.Even that season , the Cowboys running back led the league in yards per game.As good as Elliott has been, he’s been better this season. That after training on his own in Cabo while in a contract holdout.Who needs training camp? “I mean, it’s been productive the first two weeks, but there is still stuff I can improve on,” Elliott said Wednesday. “I did take care of business when I was gone, but that was expected. I’ve just got to keep getting better week in and week out and become a better football player.”Elliott has 36 carries for 164 yards and two touchdowns this season, ranking him only eighth in the NFL in rushing yards. He had 41 carries for 131 yards and two touchdowns the first two games of his rookie season, 33 carries for 112 yards and no touchdowns the first two games his second season and 32 carries for 147 yards and two touchdowns the first two games last season.Elliott played 37 snaps in the season opener, four days after he signed his contract extension Maxx Crosby Jersey , and 53 snaps last week.“Just getting in the flow of things. Just getting the flow of football and just being used to be being out there,” Elliott said. “I mean, that’s just the biggest thing.” Bears General Manager Ryan Pace’s decision to cut kicker Robbie Gould has always been questionable, but never more so than now, after a missed field goal cost the Bears a playoff game.Gould had played 11 NFL seasons, all with the Bears, and was the team’s longest-tenured active player and all-time leader in points, total field goals and 50-yard field goals, when Pace cut him just before the start of the 2016 regular season. Since then Hakeem Butler Jersey , Gould has played for the Giants and 49ers and gone a combined 82-for-85 on field goals, the best accuracy rate in the NFL over three years. The Bears’ kickers, meanwhile, have gone a cumulative 60-for-79 over the last three years, worst in the NFL — counting Cody Parkey‘s 3-for-4 day yesterday.There’s been some revisionist history that actually Gould wasn’t good in 2015 and so it was smart for Pace to cut him. That just isn’t true. It’s true that Gould wasn’t quite as great in 2015 as he has been in the three years since then, but he was still an above-average kicker in 2015, when he went 33-for-39 on field goals with a long of 55 yards. Pace just calculated that the kicker he signed to replace Gould, Connor Barth, would be better. And that turned out not to be the case.Nor has Parkey been better Chris Lindstrom Jersey , nor were Mike Nugent nor Cairo Santos, the two kickers the Bears had between Barth and Parkey, better than Gould. The Bears had a good kicker, they cut him, and they’ve paid for it.
