"Arjo show you know me of course from BTV and from writer humble host on the show it is Tuesday. November remember nineteenth two thousand Nineteen The Dallas Cowboys. Sit at six and four week. Eleven is officially in the books. An exciting being football game between the chiefs and the chargers. My Dad was there actually in Mexico City Associated Papa Ocho who will be on the show later on this weekend. We've mentioned a few times TMZ. Were heading to the New England patriots game on Sunday You know the one. The Dallas cowboys are playing and So we'll have him on for the post episode and maybe even the next day we'll see it'll be a a little bit busy experience if you're going to be there hit me up and let's see what we can do think we're trying to figure out. And maybe grab some bruise or whatever with somebody will also if you have some recommendations nations on things to do in Boston. Let me know my first time visiting the area It's going to be a very busy week. I'm going to be on a lot of other podcasts. We're going to try to get some great guests here here. But this as Tuesday's kind of our last days sort of reflect in recent and look back on on the week that was because tomorrow on Wednesday it's patriots as we could you know the cowboys are at the star they're getting ready to work in etc and there were some interesting things Interesting points of discussion. I think to arise on on Monday. Okay but given the fact that Monday night football is now officially over. I waited to record this. That's how I devoted. I am and given the Philip rivers do not have over four hundred yards arts and change. That means that Dak Prescott is officially currently the leading passer in the NFL. Oh Ya that's right right baby Dak Prescott is leading the NFL in passing with three thousand two hundred and twenty one yards. That's a lot of yards and there's a lot ought to look at with this I think You know a lot of has been said has been written. I've written a lot about this particular idea. Blog on the boys DOT COM. Lots of things coming out on Tuesday about it. Ah I want to read. You are just kind of list to you. The Way Dak has started different seasons through ten games. He's obviously only played ten in two thousand nineteen so this is his rookie in two thousand sixteen. Dak Prescott was completing sixty percent of his passes had just over two thousand six hundred yards twenty six forty seventeen touchdowns into interceptions that was twenty sixteen. Sixteen the next season two thousand Seventeen Prescott sixty three percent of his passes so definitely dip there. That was a rough season as you know. Twenty one hundred thirty nine yards so five hundred unless yards sixteen touchdowns only one less and seven interceptions compared to the tube now last season two thousand eighteen through ten games. Obviously not have Amari Cooper for all of them sixty five percent completion so a growth there. Twenty one hundred thirty eight yards so one less than the season before eleven touchdowns and five interceptions Deck Prescott is is on pace to destroy all of that is on pace to just annihilate all of that through ten games so far Dak Prescott this season. is sitting quite nice. They're gonNA leave the NFL in passing so Dak Prescott. This season. His two hundred forty seven three hundred sixty five. That's good for sixty eight percent completion. That's tied for the highest of these four seasons. Three thousand two hundred twenty one yards as mentioned that is over five hundred over six hundred almost more than the highest. He's he's ever had to this point twenty one touchdowns which is four more than he's ever had through ten games and nine interceptions which is the most and a lot of people pointed out. Look I mean. The reality is an in John. Fitness talked about this. We've talked about this. Dak Prescott is being coached to be more aggressive this season. And when you're more aggressive big plays happened but obviously you kind of live and die by that you throw interceptions. I think the best example of that is remember the interception the DAX through against the Miami dolphins that was kind of A. What do you do in your trying to cheat? You're trying to really pick this up excetera sort of play by him. But that's just him being aggressive if you're curious to To know what Dak Prescott is on pace for everybody loves on pay stats. I've kept up these averages for the rest of the season Dak Prescott would throw for over fifty one hundred yards. He's on pace for five thousand one hundred fifty four yards and thirty four touchdowns with four interceptions. Think we'd take that all day long if that comes to pass no pun intended. If DAK Prescott eclipses five thousand yards passing. He will become the the first Dallas Cowboys quarterback ever to throw for over five thousand yards in a single season. Tony Romo came very close in two thousand twelve Just under one hundred yards shy. That was you know. Kind of the beginning of the the Romo Dez twenty twelve that that second half of the twentieth twelve season it was really really really magical. I can't believe it's been seven years but But yeah man tax on fire so I think that that's worth noting and I want to give a Shannon to Bill Barnwell who Is Great. There's a lot of work for. ESPN obviously a lot out of their analytics. Based Research and has a great podcast and stuff. he kinda discussed all of the playoff contenders and this opening paragraph when it came to the Dallas Cowboys Again I encouraged her. I think this is for ESPN plus subscribers which We had Chris Weaver on recently. I am this is not like a paid promotion I love. ESPN plus I talked about Disney we ESPN plus is totally worth it for the documentaries and stuff but for this type of content. Anyway this is Bill Barnwell. There's a four quarterback uh-huh vp race right now by total QBR four pastors have posted a QBR between seventy seven seventy nine and the signal caller with the most volume of those four is Dak Prescott. It's it's time to stop pretending that the cowboys run their offense through Ezekiel Elliott or that Prescott needs his star running back to create throwing opportunities. This is DAX offense and the the cowboys are a better team for it. And I think that's really true. I mean we're at a point where the cowboys offense rides with deck in. I don't think that's necessarily a huge change. I mean you know yes the cowboys you're throwing more certainly But it's not like Zeke is is running historically less yes in fact I tweet about Zeke's carries through each seasons first ten games so in two thousand sixteen to the first ten games of the season at two hundred twenty three carries. That's a lot. Obviously in twenty seven thousand two hundred forty two carries and to be fair. He only played ten games. So kind of muddied sample their last season in two thousand eighteen. Zeke had one hundred ninety one carries through the first ten games of the season. I know I do. That's low this has got to be even lower actually this season Zeke has one hundred ninety four or carries through the first ten games of the season. He's carrying the ball more to this point anyways last season it's just Dacca's on fire and you know we've we've seen the results of that. I also think this is a really stats based episode so sorry. Hopefully you're enjoying that. But so Zeke through before this season season okay which was forty games before the season began. Ezekiel Elliott had played. Forty Games as a professional football player for the Dallas Cowboys. In those forty games. There were only four times that he had less than fifty five yards rushing in a given game. They're only four games where he had less than fifty five yards rushing four at a forty. That's ten percent okay. Ten percent this season he has four games with less than fifty yards rushing. Just this season alone own. Four percent of forty versus forty percent of ten. Think about that. That's nuts and some of that is that you know we've talked about that too. You know the the cowboys fell down thirty. One three to the packers. Twenty three to the jets. Fourteen the Vikings you know there were down seven. Nothing and I felt like a lot more against the lines and so the game situation has simply dictated the cowboys needed to pass more. And so we're seeing the fruits of that. The fruits are that you're the number one offense in the NFL by a lot of metrics most notably devi away But yeah man. I mean this is. This is a bit of a renaissance. And it's really nice and I think people are starting their there are less people that are doubting back Prescott But in a way that's a little bit more dangerous because we've now reached the point. We all thought last week when Dak was eating that drive when he was six or seven for seventy nine yards. We all thought okay. You know this is. This is the drive after this week. After the beat the Vikings. Everyone's going to be talking about Dacca's an MVP and really just kind of took winning right. I mean because they didn't be a formidable opponent but it just took winning they the lions and all of a sudden. Oh Watch out you know this is this is an MVP and I think that deck isn't MVP candidate. I think he's third behind Russell Wilson in the Mark Jackson. However you want to put those two I would would probably put Russell I myself? Although I did put the Baltimore Ravens Number One in my power rankings at blocking the worst dot com. You can check those out later today on Tuesday but anyway Dacca's third and so now now the temperature is high right now. Everybody is going to be paying attention. Nobody's going to be saying. Oh this is your MVP this this is your guy. This is the one you're saying and so in a weird way. The pressure is higher on deck. But I know what you're saying doesn't matter that's when he usually delivers and I think the Dak Prescott is delivering phenomenally for the cowboys. Amazingly amazingly in a contract year so good for deck again. Monday was a really fun day. It was a great victory. Monday and so You know times are good. Good when the cowboys win at times are very good India. We have some Some news to discuss and It's a little bit of a point of discussion when it comes to looking ahead to this match against the New England Patriots but before we get there we have to because You know in order to have ESPN and Disney plus the bill. Because we gotta do we gotta pay the bills. So let's go ahead and do that. Do not go anywhere. We're GONNA take a quick break to hear a word from our sponsors. Hey I'm Spencer Hall. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan Nanny. I'm Jason Kirk and we're the host of the shutdown forecast avengers of college football podcast.."
