    And how did that work out for the team?

        Not sure if the league is Out of their minds or if Schefty is trying to stir up baseless controversy again (Where's the Dez tape?).

          Won't happen, but I don't worry about opposing RBs any more anyway, what'd Zeke have like 100 yards in 2 games against us last year?

            Like I said, Elliot should sue if he is suspended for a single game.

              I get what you're saying, but... Breaking the law, and violating league policy, are two different things. Players get fined and suspended all the time, having never broken the law. The NFL conducts independent investigations in matters like this. If they don't like what they find, he may still be disciplined. If it seems like a double standard, it's because it is.

                Good if he's suspended. We dont have anything to prove because we beat a better Dallas team twice last year.

                I want to see an epic beatdown, 63 to 3.

                  why? the giants were the only team to hold zeke in check last year. lets not act like the D isnt built to stop guys like him.

                    That's a salient point, but Schefter's quote says it best:

                    "...Maybe one game, maybe two games, but as one person told me, in quotes, ‘It looks like the NFL is trying to pin something on him.'”

                    And that's what it's seemed like to anyone actually following this story. There are multiple witness testimonies directly contradicting the accuser's account, a plausible and verified account of how she ended up with bruises, and even text messages asking a friend to lie for her.

                    Now that's not to say that more couldn't have come out, but if the NFL actually had something, they'd give him the mandated 6 game suspension.

                    But in reality they just don't want to be burned again by a possible revelation they could not foresee (like Rice/Brown) so they're trying to find anything to stick.

                    Ironically, suspending one of the NFL's biggest stars is more detrimental to the league than a 'scandal' that was cleared up over a year ago.

                      Regardless zeke is one of the best rb in the league. I'd still rather not face him

                        Would the Cowboys be able to field a team by week 1? All these suspensions...
                        WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                          If you do anything detrimental to the league you could be suspended. They still have McFadden and the guy from the Redskins don't they ? But they would be weaker without Elliot. I hope he does get suspended it would help us. I think were going to be as tough as last year to run against anyway but Prescott without Elliot would be so much weaker. So good suspend him. Anything good for the Giants I'm in favor of.

                                Huh?? You rather not face a division rival or any opposing team at full strength?? Nah I'm looking forward to that week 1 matchup. The Giants have already proven how to neutralize a plAyer like zeke and we are one of the best running D in the league. We match up very well against them.
