Listen: Dallas Cowboys, Football And Ravens discussed on First Things First
"And you have to be accountable for him. What that has done to their running game has also the complementary nature of football. They've got a guy that strikes a bit of fear into you have to be that you have to be concerned about and what that's done to that side of the football field for their running game has been it's been one of those things. I don't know how you calculate that. But it's been a huge one. But one thing that they've done is the defenses are planning to Cowboys, very very. Similar to when he wasn't there. But what happens is he's making the defense paid because they got so many guys in the box. If he makes one guy miss and also Dallas has made the judgment not only left Dr. But pudding Michael Gallup on the outside. So him in Amari Cooper. They got more speed on the field like they can take shots. Into your into the defense a little bit, right? I mean, they became a lot faster football team by making those guys primarily the wide receivers outside. We started talking about the defense. This is a league where we saw quarterbacks are playing better offenses are putting up for more points that seems to be the standard except for the Dallas Cowboys is this defense Nick good enough to carry the team when their offense is not playing to seize point if they can play at the level they did against New Orleans. Absolutely. Yes. Now that is incredibly hard to duplicate right? Like, you were talking about the fear of being embarrassed national television, play an arguably the best team in football. Here's what I'll say for the Cowboys going into last week's game New Orleans and Philly coming at home if they could only win one of those games, the far more important game is the one that's coming up losing to Philly will undo everything that happening in New Orleans because it's divisional game. It's the team chasing you in the division. They can all be undone hearing about ninety six hours if. They can't handle their business against philli. But if they can then you're talking about a team that won five straight. You're talking about a team that knows who it is their defense team with a great running back, and as you were talking about one very good wide receiver who puts legit fear an opponent and another wide receiver. Michael Gallup, who guess what it's week thirteen doesn't look like a rookie as much anymore. It has a better idea of what the NFL speed is. And so that that where it is. They are playing them in the ravens are the two teams in Seattle. I guess kind of trying to play an older school style of football in two thousand eighteen but I know see believes that style is going to become more in vogue as the weather gets colder, even though Dallas is doesn't have to worry about that. So we'll see how long they can keep it going. All right. Let's take a break. Mark. Stick around coming up. Could the patriot way the key to Aaron Rodgers winning another two next first things first? That guy three times Fant Mark slayer at this with us. Stay great to have you. Great to be here. Thank you for you, guys. Head out to call your game to Sunday. Yes. Dick Stockton up. So literally little Cleveland Carolina looking forward to all right. Let's talk some other things got on Cam. It man bring something say something. Don't even have to bring your shirt this time dislike last time. So the chiefs arguably the best team in football just barely beat the raiders last week. Arguably the worst team in football still a win is a win. And now Kansas City look ahead to Sunday where they'll host Lamar Jackson and the ravens ravens have won their last three, but still seven point underdogs in this one one of the ravens have to do if they are going to pull off an upset. I think there's a couple of things defensively when you look at the Kansas City Chiefs, they will get you side the side east and west it's it's it's it's so complex looking. But it's really it's really simple. But they'll use the jet. Sweep Bill used demotion they'll use the screen game to soften you up. The thing about Andy Reid is he'll run three four three or four formations and out of every formation.."
