Listen: Demarcus Lawrence, Cowboys And ESPN discussed on SportsCenter AM
"Has a great saying, I don't know where he got it from. But one is worried about winning. We're focus on ourselves in this locker room. But what we what we need to do to get better each. And every phase of this game. I'm ready for this week. He say she said. Going to get very interesting. Now, do I think the Cowboys need any added motivation going in this game? Yeah. Probably not. Do I still think the Cowboys are did I think the Cowboys were going to lose before? And now they're going to win. No. I thought the Cowboys win this game before very healthier team at this point on the eagles. And I believe overall this point with the addition of Amari Cooper, they've shown to be a better team, and certainly a better faster younger defense at this point in time. So all these things were already leaning in the Cowboys favor that being said if you are this eagles linebacker now any chance that this Cowboys group has to embarrass you. They will likely take that chance like guys here understand these things you remember that those comments that one of the Texas defensive ends made prior to the Oklahoma game. He had to apologize for. He wore pigtails out there. He wears number forty four for Texas. His name escapes me right now. I turned on the tape of the big twelve championship and watched every offensive linemen that got a chance on Oklahoma's team tried to kill him during the first few series of that game as as many times guy. Guys could be blocking. I saw him. Get triple teamed him buried. I saw guys shirk the rest of the responsibilities on plays and go and just try to bury that guy and not bury him on the ground barium under the ground. Because guys hearing guys remember this stuff. So when they get a chance, and you would anyway, you would absolutely you're always going one hundred percent, but it's fun to dig a little extra. And when you got a guy talking that gas like this, and it overall speaks to the point of this is a conference with a lot of bad blood in their division. I should say it maybe has it seemed like that. Because for so long this season. It looked like a very bad division until the Cowboys really started to assert themselves. Tedy Bruschi are ESPN analyst and former linebacker himself says right now. The eagles have check that. They got a cash coming off of this. It's not DeMarcus Lawrence ask because DeMarcus Lawrence is the man. Okay. And he's one of the best in the league. I mean, I know who rear hill is still not DeMarcus Lawrence. Totally get right. But we're seeing a week later another guy saying it, we'll see if they're going to have to kick it. They're going to have to cash a check that this guy just written right there. Because this is this is some big time track. First and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app, and it is different saying demain. What DeMarcus Lawrence said and saying what Greer hill said. Thank you teddy, by the way, for helping the pronunciation assist, they're saying what they said wildly different things. One is an attack one is a direct shot and the other is just an assertion of how you play football saying you've got to walk in and punch them in the mouth is what every football coaches, probably preached used since the dawn of time calling. The Cowboys chokers is a very personal attack on this franchise and the guys involved into it. So now, you got that on one side, you got owed Beckham coming out on the other side saying at this point, we can only focus on beating Washington there is no what if we're going out there to win. However, if our season is over I'm making sure somebody else's come with us. That's the goals. You've got the lines drawn in the sand. At Odell Beckham junior has been a very vocal member of this team in the latter half of the season saying we're going out here to run the table. We think we can win every game on our schedule. And now we want to play the role of spoiler. So it for a division that I at some point was really vying for the AFC south for a majority of the season for most disappointing and football both of somewhat rounded into form towards the end of the season on the backs of their stellar performers in Texas all things considered when you look at Houston in Dallas, and the performance is they've put out of kind of lifted the relevance of these divisions. But now you had a little bit of this good old fashioned hate on top of these things. And it makes it that much more interesting. Like, one thing's for sure if we didn't know. Rear hill, named going into this in a way that I was a little bit unfamiliar with considering he's not one of these star players and the eagles defense that you'd normally think of all of a sudden you've got an extra guy to check in on during this game. And maybe a little extra reason to tune in. If you're a Dallas fan. Something else that you're rooting for. In addition to a win that you believe is coming already, and then I believe was coming already. But this is what we talked about before. This is an all in all honesty. This is a good thing. Because this is a reminder of a bulletin board. Material really is we were trying to make that DeMarcus Lawrence stuff in a bulletin board material when it was really anything. But that was that was almost coach speak the way that it was executed, and it comes from a player that everyone looks around and says, yeah, DeMarcus Lawrence he's about he's going to go out there and back it up. They're going to test this guy now. They're going to test this guy now because this was not coach speak. This is not anything else. This was a pointed shot across the bow. This is a show of confidence on the part of the eagles. But this is the kind of stuff that makes its way into a group chat in your position group. This is the kind of thing that gets discussed in the locker room, and this is the kind of guy that just made himself public enemy number one team in Dallas. And he shouldn't care. Why would he? But now you did just up the ante a little bit going for this game. And I gotta tell you. It's working for me a little more interested than I was before. All right. Switching gears as we move up coming up next the comments made yesterday the other day, excuse me by Ruben foster ex are starting to make a lot of people. Look a lot of bad. That's that's as I last here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app, your radio, your computer your phone. She's telling your smart speaker to play. Yes. Began radio. ESPN radio. Everywhere. Getting knocked down on the football field makes you tough. But getting back up makes you tougher at Goodyear, we call that determination. A willingness to put in more hours more reps and more heart to reach a bar sky high because the Goodyear blimp doesn't show up for just anybody. So don't just anybody. Blimpworthy. Good here. More driven. The right time put money Jones. Here's that is go first Ratliff is already in the rain hailing from Oakland, California. Hugh jackson. Before he even gets done with his little routine, the lights cut out the music comes on. And it's making me feel the crowd is ROY this match will be over in four."
