Listen: Eagles, Cowboys And Dallas discussed on Big Daddy Graham Show
"The name of this one, Mike. Nice kind of coming here. We're going to talk a little eagles Dallas here. I my. Title jock jockstrap. More than the more famous NFL songs ever am. I it's not tight jockstrap. It's the equalizer. Tom name for classic NFL music. My made up names better than that. Tight jockstrap. But without a doubt that that's better than that. Anyway, let me get this out of the way. 'cause I've already asked online and whatnot. I don't feel good about this eagles game on Sunday. The only thing that's. There's two things that are making me hanging there with the fact that eagles could win and one is I have not had a good feel for any eagles game the entire season. I swear to Ghana habit. I found them to be a very difficult team to figure out this year. Because it when I tell you that I think the Cowboys I'm gonna win on Sunday. I'm saying we great reservation for that reason not having a proper field for practically any eagles game this year. And any other reason Cowboys have won four straight. And I don't think they're that. Good. I don't and I I question, you know, door just naturally assume because the game is at home and they've been very good team this year. That it's going to be five straight. I I'm the guy goes the opposite direction often a win teams win that many in a row. I always feel like no, maybe they do. But having said that those reservations. I think this is Dallas week this week. Do you think the saints? We're gonna win them last week ten game winning going in. So. You'd have to be almost. Well, you were the only one you were it. I actually. Yeah. Took Dallas on the money line to the game. I'm talking about the New Orleans game. You anyone sitting you know, what don't don't count that? As a an automatic win for New Orleans, but what you feel on on Sunday. The home teams the better team Dallas. Just look at the matchup. It's kind kinda hard to find one thing at the eagles do way better than the Cowboys matchup deal. Lebanon eleven the Cowboys are the best player in this game. Zico Elliott, I think that matters a great deal. Doubt. Like you watch that saints game early. Yeah. The saints game the Cowboys game or the saints game in the they played before that the the Redskins and their defense is just plain out of their minds. We were talking about last week with Vince, and I just you know, up and down that unit there, so solid. The offensive line for a while was the strength of the Cowboys and they've actually regress to if not mediocre, maybe even less than mediocre, but at the eagles D line. It's almost like week to week. You're not really sure how much pressure they're going to get. Oh, I I take over all you look at the season. And they have not given you the pressure that I take you thought they were going to give I I know what you're saying. Maybe as late maybe it's week to week. You're not sure where again, but you look at the season as a whole you look at the twelve games, and I really take. No, they have not given you the pressure that you thought they were going to give I think that's safe to say. Yeah, I think there's a stat out there that they they're like up there in quarterback Russia's, but it just it hasn't translated. They're still giving a big plays in the like, I know they're they're secondary. Socks for being honest. But there's just not working out. By the way, you think with all the Russia's passer yet pass rushes they're getting Dallas. You know, I just I just see them control in this game. I don't think the eagles are gonna legals. Usually when the eagles win in Dallas. They go in there, and they're just outscore and they just go in there and they control the game. Like what have we seen? The eagles. Do that on the road this year aside from the game in the Meadowlands even the the game in London neutral field, but they didn't really I didn't. I wouldn't say they went in there and in that game. Yeah. I just. Yeah. Any given Sunday, blah, blah. The cardinals beat the Packers and Lambeau in December. Dome team doing that. You wouldn't have guessed that especially with a terrible quarterback. But I digress. If you were to ask me, why do the eagles win this game? I don't have an answer for you. Okay. But you said a moment ago, you know, Elliott is clearly the best player on the field. I'm not going to argue with that. But it down the quarterback. Who you giving the edge there? I still gotta give it to wins. I do and and you know, it's such a quarterback dominated league. And you know, you you can say what a Cowboys have added Kupa legalzoom addict, I might give the edged not my I am giving the age to went over Prescott. Why though? I felt like last week. His mobility seemed the best suited looked all year. And then maybe that aspect of Wentz is back and have data aspect of wenches back. Then. I'm down with that. I'm not like some anti Prescott guy. But if I had to choose between the two and lean towards wins would not by a lot. But I would now before wench got hurt. Right remain towards Wentz. A great deal over Prescott. One legged Wentz makes this match. Yeah. You're probably right once price still a little bit better. But I don't I don't know about enough to to for lack of a better term to matter. You know to to really like grab this game winner for Philadelphia. This is his break count game. Eighteen. I mean, people kinda waiting for that to happen. Now. I don't know for a fact it was going to happen in that. But he definitely appeared more mobile last week. Maybe this is Dan. Then they win this week is the one year anniversary of the injuries stubby kind of cool in a roundabout way. If this was the breakout game, I would love to see happen in the fact it had seven catches last week. Granite not against the team is talented as Cavaliers but still. It gives whence another weapon in other guy to look at you know, and he hasn't been looking at anyone else other than in arts all year, right? But I'm still picking up wages. Well, I've just take this year. And I just. Kiss hasn't happened for the eagles this year. And now we're down to four final games. And I wonder. I really do. I wonder if anybody players on the eagles are looking at the games remaining after we'll look what's next week. It's my point. Oh, okay. Unlike other you meant like, well, we don't need this one. We can win the next right? That day. This is I got a long road ahead of them. There's no cupcakes. You know remaining throwing Texans in Rams his. I don't I just don't feel good about the eagles this season. I was hoping when she was going to make the huge difference. This year. That didn't happen. Season's not over could. They win, you know, treated the next four games. Yeah. But I doubt it. Yeah. I do I doubt it. And I think they lose on Sunday. Let's see what. Brian from Broome all thinks about it. What's up there? Brian. Good ryan. How are you? Better than you. Coming up on somehow, wait a minute. You can't allow someone else's opinion to get when I feel good about a game, regardless of whether it's the Sixers regal Phillies who would ever hearing a caller or host. Going the other way doesn't sway me at all. So I gather you're saying you wanna win. And if that's how you feel make your case, Brian. Well, this is why historically these guys normally split their there. So you've got everything else out the window. Also last week four weeks before non over matters. Uh-huh. Cowboys. All right. That's one point. So point number one for you. And it's not a bad one. You just don't see either team winning both games. And obviously eagles can't win boats since they already lost one. So you take that's your number one reason that they traditionally. The eagles. Don't lose both games. The cowboys. I mean, that's kind of only happens. And also I was at the game Monday night. And it was crying against choline Sanchez. But it was finally starting to see the armour. Offense of where you start click and yes Carson Wentz. Some opportunities the timing with the lower in the red zone, which you can't do that. If you want to win. What I saw I saw have developed gold. Hey, where Lewis effective what he's extending the play. And he's moving schooling. Rigors legs are moving and the fact that him to please, please. Communicated on the field and he threw out over him on a broken play. And obviously the one of the end zone. The secondary is not special Dallas on Monday nights week nine against Tennessee. Got smoked Barbara titans. School. School was killing an eagle screen game has improved dramatically. Thank you. Addition or Darren sproles and Corey spine looking like excuse me. He's getting over that quasi. Jay that he had he has an extra explosiveness and now audience SaaS bottoms, whose toy. Who's one cut run physical? Doc. I think also in Jeffrey has a big team. You haven't seen them for the past few weeks? He bullies that secondary would've size and be able to box out. Let me stop making a lot of good points. And let me jump in near has how Sean Jeffrey had a you team this year. I don't. I his first three to four weeks. He was a monster. And then it seem to fizzle out. He's not getting targets. And I don't think it's our fault. I mean, if you want some of those gains, the fact that he's bigger and more physical. A lot of defensive backs are getting away with. Hold on the hand and grabbed him more. Because I feel like the fact that he's bigger than the referees are giving those a little a little more Christian and saying, you know, what we're not gonna call that. When maybe they'd probably could. But that's besides the point. I think also gonna show up. I think he's gonna be hold on. I'm jumping in again on our, Sean. I always take out Sean showed up. I think he makes really tough catches just for whatever reason this year. Whence it's just not targeting him. It's true. And I go with you saying he had four months to gains at the beginning of the year. Okay. We'll get. We'll we'll see. I will not cut you off without getting that. Okay. Cool. I feel like the size matter. Like, I think will finally close some more Balsam was. Specializes? You always make cuts down. They just need to go to him a little bit. I think the offense is finally starting to think this is that so you and Mike both believe won four in a row. We haven't been looking at now believing they've won four in a row. I wanted. I'm just where you're coming from. And if they don't do it. They don't do this. This entire script of the season is nothing more stronger confidently fourteen to beat up position rival to take first place who's won four in a row and to do it in their own house to take you into the next week. You'll gets LA prime time on Sunday night. This. Has a good defense Washington. Offense because visit injuries could have put up five points connected on those throws it would've been five. Pool or whatever it was which which I don't want to talk you out of your optimism because first of all I stated table. No. I really don't because I started off my whole rift when I was telling you who I thought was going to win on Sunday with I have had no feel for the eagles the entire year every single game. I look at it. And I go you got me they've been very difficult team for me to figure out this year. So I am not going to be behind this microphone going. You're insane. There's no way they're winning on Sunday. Now, they absolutely could win on Sunday. Yeah. Sure. Every year in my life that I have ever watched NFL football. Been has been a brand new season roughly follows logic nothing flows from one week to. Thanks, so unpredictable. Normal. Terrific. Well, this this tool. All that stuff. It's unbelievable. For the fact that you know, in the next couple of weeks there are playing two teams that had been winning pretty much every game. They played this year. Our give you with the eagles is been very difficult to predict but not with the Rams and not what the Texans, right? Really making me nervous about the remainder of the season. I watch your movie. I have to grow with the godfather. I wanted to make it as easy as possible. It's not a Christmas movie. But even the always wonder if people notice his, you know, when a they kind of kidnapped Ravi do Val, Tom Hagen. And he's at that point. They're taking Marlon Brando's dead. And they want Robert Val to make the deal, you know, Sony wanted to make the deal you do was the right thing to do that whole thing is taken place in a trailer. That's connected to a Christmas tree lot. And then you got the Al Pacino. Diane Keaton scenes were there Christmas shopping coming on the Radio City Music hall. There's Christmas cards hanging up in the kitchens of the godfather. This is Chris songs too. Two Christmas songs to well. There definitely is one playing when Pacino Keaton who by the way when that scene was being shot in real life. They were in love Pacino Keaton. They they were having an affair. Well, not fair either one of them were married. Neither one of them have ever been married. Hey, that's crazy and big daddy. I've told us the bike before I took the call. It was ironic because last week subjects, but you brought this up earlier when you came on.."
