on the league’s competition committee. His son Authentic Rashaad Penny Jersey , Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, does now.It sounds like Jerry Jones hopes Stephen Jones and the rest of the competition committee do something to curb the roughing the passer penalties for next season.Jerry Jones strongly disagreed with a roughing the passer penalty on Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford on Sunday. 鈥淭hat was not roughing the passer under the existing rules,鈥?Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPN.Officials have called nine roughing the passer calls in Week Three before tonight鈥檚 game, according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN, making 30 for the season.Crawford’s hit on Russell Wilson was similar to the one Clay Matthews delivered earlier in the day against Alex Smith. Referee Carl Cheffers determined Crawford landed with his body weight on top of Wilson.Matthews said afterward that the league is “getting soft.” Crawford called it “petty stuff.”鈥淚鈥檓 going to get the letter,鈥?Crawford said, referring to a fine letter from the league. 鈥淣o one wants to get hit with something like that. We e got families we e got to take care of. That money can go to them. Instead ]the league is] trying to get us on petty stuff. It is what it is.鈥漀ot necessarily. The league is calling the hits illegal on the field and using some of them, including Matthews’ hit on Kirk Cousins last week, as teaching tools. But Matthews was not fined for the hit on Cousins last week, and Eric Kendricks was not fined for the hit on Aaron Rodgers last week.So Crawford could escape with a 15-yard penalty and no fine.C.J. Prosise, not Mike Davis, could be the one cut when J.D. McKissic returns Entering training camp, one of the most interesting battles to follow was J.D. McKissic, Mike Davis and C.J. Prosise battling for two roster spots. Though no player ever appeared to distance themselves , the battle was decided when McKissic went down with a Jones’ fracture in late August. As a result, both Prosise and Davis made the 53-man roster. Four weeks into the season, Davis and Prosise both remain on the roster. Both have been inactive for one game each, Davis in Week 1 and Prosise in Week 3 (although Prosise’s missed game was through injury). McKissic will be eligible to return following Week 8, and assuming the health of Seattle’s running backs remains unchanged before then, a move will have to be made in what would be a crowded backfield.To begin the season, Prosise appeared to be ahead of Davis in the pecking order. He dressed over him in the opener against the Broncos, and more importantly, played special teams during preseason, while Davis did not. However, in Davis’s debut in Week 2, he appeared on 63% of the team’s special team snaps, while appearing sporadically on offense. With Prosise out in Week 3, Davis’s contributions on special teams continued. Any gap Prosise may have had between himself and Davis had all but disappeared within three weeks. With Chris Carson sitting out with a hip injury, Davis took over the backfield in Week 4 , rushing for 101 yards and two touchdowns, adding four catches for 23 yards through the air. Prosise, meanwhile, played just three snaps in Carson’s absence. Despite Prosise’s injury issues and Davis’s relatively bright end to 2017, the former third round pick managed to remain—or at least appeared to be—ahead of Davis throughout the preseason. Prosise is under team control for another season, and comes at a cheaper cost than Davis. Not to mention Prosise has an extremely desirable skill set, one that’s flashed in games that remain in the memories of the Seahawks’ staff. However, after Davis’s strong showing in Week 4 and Prosise’s prolonged absence from the offense, the ultra-talented yet oft-injured running back’s time could be coming to an end in Seattle. The Seahawks will have until Week 9, when McKissic should return, to make a decision, but the pressure is on Prosise to earn his keep.
