Cowboys’ Star Tony Pollard Expresses Self-Expectations Amid Playoff Push



As the Dallas Cowboys gear up for a potential NFC East victory this weekend with one of the NFL’s top offenses, star running back Tony Pollard reveals his personal reflections on the season.

Despite the team’s success in playoffs and rankings, Pollard acknowledges falling short of his own expectations and emphasizes his role as his harshest critic.

“I thought I would probably have a better year than I am now. Where we are as far as playoffs and rankings, I couldn’t complain with everything in front of us,” Pollard shared via the Cowboys’ official website. “I would say just trying to get more at-bats at the plate. Get more repetition for the o-line and get a feel for how the defense is playing things and getting into a rhythm.”

Entering Week 18, Pollard recorded 935 rushing yards on 235 carries (4.0 yards per carry) with five touchdowns, along with 53 receptions for 295 yards.

While still contributing significantly to the team, he reflects on a breakthrough 2022 season that earned him the franchise tag and made Ezekiel Elliott expendable.

Despite a slight regression in yards per carry this season, Pollard’s impact remains notable. The Cowboys’ offense, predominantly outstanding at home, has averaged 29.4 points per game (third best in the NFL) this season. The team’s success at home includes a remarkable 16 consecutive wins, encompassing all eight games this season.

As the Cowboys aim to secure the NFC East title with a victory over the Washington Commanders, Pollard’s self-reflection adds a layer of personal expectation to the team’s playoff push.
