Listen: Dallas, National Football League And Kareem Hunt discussed on Dave Ramsey
"How are you this week Scottie Graham, I am doing great. How you doing? I'm doing well. And one of the things that we want to know going into this week is what is the overall carryover effect on the New Orleans Saints in Dallas Cowboys did a couple of things in that game that they ultimately ended up winning that bothered the saints offensive rhythm. They rushed up the middle on drew Brees. It seemed to have an effect. Did this Dallas teams defense find any kind of an achilles heel? You know, that's going to change the way the saints approach things the rest of the way. I mean, let's preface it with two points. I mean point number one is that they were meeting. New Orleans was visiting team on Thursday night. That's a really tough turnaround. For for every team in the league. And number two. When you talk about doing some different things. You also have to have the talent to back it up. Okay. Schematics don't don't win games without talent. So when I look at the way that Dallas defense constructed I mean, it's kind of where the NFL's going. You got to rush the quarterback. And they've got a couple of voracious pass rushers. This DeMarcus Lawrence is awesome. The other kid next to them from is outstanding defensive tackle the in. They've got two or three linebackers faster than most safeties throughout the NFL. When you look at their front seven the way, they're built is that they can rush the quarterback with four. They're gifted pass rushers. They get up the field and they play hard for Marinelli and Rashard the really really hard. And when you start talking about pressure off, the middle a gap pressure and all the rest that does bother most quarterbacks when I sit down with a Tom Brady Peyton Manning or drew Brees and say, hey, what bothers you. You the most the answer is almost always the same pressure up the middle immediately because I can't step up. So then you're tackles can't push people by so I can throw it all in the hopper and what I would really tell you is. I think Dallas has one of the premier front sevens in the National Football League. I think Jacksonville's and other one that can rush four and get to the quarterback but teams that can do that that can rush for get to the quarterback and have linebackers that can run and still compete in the run game that special that's a little different in Dallas has that. I just we're talking about a lead offenses in the changes that have come their way the chiefs, obviously with a new running back in, you know, Spencer where was the starter before Kareem hunt came in and took over the question is how much is what Andy Reid is trying to do to change not just in one game. But over the long term with where back there. First and foremost, there's a drop off in town. Okay. 'cause Kareem hunt with special and the thing that made him special was contact balance. And I went back to my notes from scouting him in college. And that was what jumped off the page is was the contact balance rare. He's not that fast. Think he ran four six or four six two with at the combine. So it wasn't the speed. It was the ability to withstand contact and keep a play alive. So if you block a play for three he's getting your six if you block a play for ten he might go the whole way. So he's a difference maker. So now, what does it mean? We'll Spencer where well I think it's going to hurt the run game a little bit. But they still have so many weapons, you know, that you turn around and last week Patrick Mahomes. Ran the football a bit more, you know, in tyreek hill can get it on jet sweep. So they've got so much talent on that football team offensively in the scheme is so good. Do I think they're going to be hurt a little bit because they lose Kareem hunt? Absolutely. But they still have the town in the scheme, in my opinion to outscore most teams now, you know, I listen to you. Religiously with regard to what the talents are of individual players in the National Football League, we work together. All the time. Your word is law. You understand that right now? I don't know how you do. Now. You do. All right. So you told me that Josh Allen had an incredible arm. It was all about his aren't you didn't tell me once that it was about his legs. And he was going to be running for one hundred yards a game. Well, you apparently were listening to the draft up because this son of son of a gun is one of the most athletic five two hundred and forty pound guys you're ever going to run into. So when you put his Wyoming tape on the first thing that jumped out was his arm, Scott. I'm not going to deny that his arms. He's got a lead arm talent. No doubt about it. But at two forty he's an ass. Athletic kid and Wyoming used them a lot in the plan to quarterback run game. So I always knew he could do it. I think what's really interesting over the last two weeks, which is when he's run the ball. The most Scott, I think it's giving them a little jolt of confidence. And when you're a rookie in the NFL, you know, he had to start early and he didn't play very, well, then he got hurt. And I think it's been good for him to take a step back for a few weeks. Watch film, go through the walk throughs kind of take a step back and evaluate what he did. Well, what he did poorly? And now he's come back out. And I think he's been more aggressive kid, especially with his legs. And I think the success with his legs has given him more confidence with his arm and the question with the arms always been accuracy. And I watched a bunch of his tapes earlier this week, and he still has to learn to identify underneath coverage. He's he's not going to be because big arm quarterback, Scott. They always wanna throw it through coverage. He's got to learn how to win -ticipant and get it out earlier. So. He's got a long way to go. But I really think what he's done with his legs has made them a better football team offensively and be given him some confidence wanted to ask you about the Pittsburgh Steelers in what they're gonna do offensively. Now being even more committed to passing the ball with an injury and running back, but quick aside. Ryan shazier, you got an opportunity to see a picture this week. So did I well I mean, I was blown away at the draft in in Dallas last year when when he actually came up on the stage and was walking unattended. And if you remember the prognosis, I mean, we're about the one year anniversary where where that injury happened. I."
