"I think he thinks the eagles game from last year was a little bit unfair with the amount of offensive linemen that were out the whole situation. That season just feels like ben wasn't prepared enough in this. Just he wants to try to give him a chance. I think to get past that. So i can understand it because i've heard a lot of the behind the scenes stuff all summer. I get fans might not understand it but it's the practice squad spot go matter you give them a chance will based on all the you know the videos in the in the clips that you got to go through and really insight that you've gained into like getting to know these guys on a personal level. Is there any insight you can share about how the cowboys operate that. Maybe wasn't shown on the the program itself is there anything that That would surprise people about either. How decisions are made. I mean we kinda got jerry. Stephen sitting in the personnel room. You know kind of eye-to-eye with will mcclay having a conversation over players. So i think that was a portion that maybe fans might still be surprised by jerry's like actively involved in those conversations. Was there anything else that you saw. That maybe didn't make it to the the itself trying to think of as far as the decision making processes goes i. I don't think there was an i mean. I think it was great. There's a lot of teams these days that the chargers didn't have many staff meetings last year. Like if any really Things were done like kind of on a one on one basis with anthony lennon lesko. I thought it was kinda cool to be able to have access to some of those staff meetings again in the show this year especially episode one had a bunch and then seeing jerry seib involved in that process in the final show. I don't know nice source of decisions. Go i mean. I wish we it kind of stunk. We lost dan quinn with the code. That situation could have seen more of him at if that hadn't happened. But i don't really i can't think of anything right off the top of my head that about it. I mean i just know like again. Like i love coming to dallas because i like the city. I like the guys. It's a great locker room. I mean. I don't know how if you're a player and you come there on a visit if they offer you a contract. I don't know how you're leaving like it's will let me ask the question a better way. That is the cowboys decision. Making process the best. One that you've seen in your experience at hard knocks if you say no people riot fantasy. You better not kids. I mean you gotta easy layup if you want to say yes but you don't have to say yes because survey disagree. I don't really know if i'm the best person to as just. Because i can say that like i like the way the cowboys organization is run the decision making process. Like i'm not a football guru. So i don't know as much as i try to learn xs and os and things like that and inside like i like working on our shows that are more details so i can learn more about those things but i do know people well and just how to kind of manage people do things and i will say i i like. I love the way the cowboys organization is. I love that jerry care so much about his team because they're definitely been hard knocks where the owners more of an absentee owner and you see kind of other things come from that. So i do love the passion around the cowboys and just that he said this a million times could be anywhere on the world at this point in his life but like he loves the ball he loves this team and he wants every one around him and underhand like to to feel the same way so i think that his passion is really cool. And that's what i love about the cowboys organization shannon. This was something that was really popular and cowboys twitter. When you guys showed the joint practice between the cowboys and the rams it was sort of piece together by people that you guys showed those in reverse order. Random order the scuffles. We do have a question here on the stream as to why that happened. The question comes from yuma. Cactus says i know why but i want to hear an official explanation so so you're aware the general assumption is that that was more aesthetically pleasing That that was more movie bike. But i'll give you the floor. Yeah well it's i mean some. I know there was like something out there like. Why didn't they have this fight. That like i think the cowboys cameras captured aaron. Donald connor williams fight was what everyone wanted to see. Well so we didn't have connor williams mike So we only had ten guys. Might that day. So i mean yes. There were strict instructions to whenever aaron. Donald is on the field We be around that like the narrative whoever's owned the d. line that day so we did have a crew covering the d. line But it's like you can't predict when those moments are exactly going to erupt and stuff so And then yeah as far as like not going in chronological order and stuff. They're going to edit things that you know with the beat of the music things like that the build up so it was like you know something that happened in that day after the aaron donald site. Of course we're going to build up to the donald fight. That was the moment everybody remembered. That's moment everybody's waiting for so. Even if one of those couples happened after that i think like yeah we we. We don't follow a strict chronological order on her dogs so just to make the best montage and shirl- music storyline. I have another decision making question. Actually so mike. Mccarthy was all about these mojo moments i believe it was like one of the first episodes maybe second but we didn't see it continue.

"Beautiful touchdown cowboys ethylene branded smith. Look at that. I mean who isn't happy for ben to nucci. I mean seriously who is not happy for him. Now i will say. I also have garrett gilbert as an honorable mention. Let's see we've got. Christopher hello possessed gilbert gets qb to indonesia practice squad totally fine with this. I mean i have zero qualms with it. But i mean garrett gilbert to me. The reason gilbertson honorable mention is he was fine. He wasn't amazing. I don't even think ben to is amazing. In fact if you look at their stats for the night. Cooper rush finished seven of thirteen for eighty nine yards. We're not giving him any real up here. Garrick gilbert seven sixteen for eighty yards i rating of fifty nine point four. The lowest of the group bend nucci did have the touchdown. He was six a fourteen for forty six yards on the evening. Also been to new. She had a chance to win the game And didn't and not to kind of harper or kind of just dwell on that but That is a factor. That i think we all have to consider here so it is but garrett gilbert looked serviceable looked fine looked competent. And really. i mean that's an important thing right now. Given the state of the cowboys quarterback position so greg gilbert and honorable mention for me. Let's get back to winners whether you have a winner. You have a loser. You have an honorable mention. What do you want to say. Let us know whether you're watching live or not if you're not shot allied wherever you are but we talked about as winners keanu neil. Lyle collins endurance armstrong another winner for me. Deborah cox deborah cox. We've been waiting for a long time. Are we win for ever to see this dude pop. You've seen billion training camp highlights. We've had a lot of fun talking about different players mica. Paris captivated our attention. Obviously at the linebacker position. I thought played okayed in i. He had a great open-field tackle early on jalen smith. People are going to say things. But i mean i really thought that djibril cox played well we saw just popped. He flashed he was. He was in the backfield. He was moving side to side. We saw some of the coverage skills that made him obviously the draft that the couch took in the fourth round. I thought overall it was a step in the right direction for joe brokaw and given that we hadn't seen any of that to this point. I think that that really puts him in the winter. Scatter gory. it's so hard for djibril cox's. We've talked about several times. You're on our shows on our podcast. It's so hard for him to flash because there are so many players at that spot. It's so hard for djibril cox to get opportunities because everything is going to mike to jalen till laden. I mean there's a lot of linebackers two kiana neil. The lunatic says Jaycox showing that knowledge and floated the ball. Hillary says djibril cox will be a good player. Totally agree totally agree. Djibril cox great moment But let's keep going. Our final winner are four winter. So far we're going to get to losers. I think you all are going to feel very passionate about one in particular. We want to be as kind as possible here. But we've got. We've got lyle collins. Dorrance armstrong algebra cox as winners. Look i'm optimistic mood. I've had three rupees tonight. I don't have a problem. Saying i'm too nice. Wander all right hundred. Ice wander is a winner to me. And you're gonna roll your eyes and say like are you serious hundred nights wander is also competing for a roster spot on the cowboys and had a rough showing last week in the pro football hall of fame game. You're mentioning the sean right again. Not to spoil it. But we do have honorable. Mentions to get to. Hunter was perfect tonight. He he was perfect. He didn't did not miss a single kick. That's a hard thing to do in the nfl. And so the fact that he's doing this as a punter is impressive to me doesn't mean he's going to be the kicker the dallas cowboys. No but i think he deserves some love. So congratulations to one hundred nights. Wander our winter here tonight. Let's get to our losers so we've talked about winners kevin clark. By the way. I rolls for nicewander. Appreciate it kevin clark. So let's start with your top loser your number one loser. I wish we had a nicer way to put this. But we don't and loser doesn't mean that they are personally losers. It just means that their stock fell. Their stock was lowered their stock lost as a result of the preseason game tonight friday night on the road against the cardinals. The last road game for the cowboys by the way until they go to face the tampa bay buccaneers in week. One kevin is the first to say it on our facebook. Feed connor williams andrea says loser. Connor williams manny connor williams At center and i think that that's the important thing to specify. This is very obvious. Connor williams at center is not going to work. I mean i don't have a problem. Ultimately the cowboys went down this path that they tried to explore what connor williams could offer as a center that they wanted to see. Maybe let's let's play a little bit of qatar. This evening it was. It was not good as you can see book. I mean like this looks like when. I'm trying when i'm on the fringe on the golf course and i just duff my shot and it goes to yards. I mean these. These are not great moments for connor williams and so that is concerning dfw. Av geek. five to one a. mouthful for me says. Oh yeah definitely. Connor williams now travis. Bush has called jumbo joe. Looney retired as far as we're all the way aware of now. Here's the thing the reaper. Let's be careful here because this is a late late show didn't mcgovern play center in college. Why don't we try. So i don't understand this and i'm not trying to knock the cowboys for this because i am. I am in favor of exploration in the name of getting the best assembly of offensive. Linemen that you can. If connor mcgovern at left guard and connor williams at center is a better overall five than connor williams at left guard in which at center than okay. I can understand that. Like the thought of that. Makes sense to me. And i can see you know if you and i. We are for having some rupiahs. I've got another one here. It's like i said it's late. We gotta stay up. We're having a good time. We're having a couple of water burgers and you say you know what i think we should try. This okay cool. i'm with you. Let's try that but the results are what they are at this point. This might be the thing that i feel the most passionate about after this game. The thing that i am most confident in is that connor williams at center is not a viable option for this team. Why is he starting. Ahead of biaggi's i should center. That's a hard question to logically answer it. I suppose you could say the answer is at the cowboys. Wanna see what it offers now. There's a great point here. let's see here. I'm looking for this. I saw this a moment ago whereas here we did lunatics has. How can you evaluate players when you have a bad snap play. That's a great this whole purpose. That the reason we're up so late is because cliff kings. Mike mccarthy wanted to practice every nitty gritty little detail like calling timeouts and kickers even in the preseason. But if you're gonna treat seriously and you want to get a proper evaluation of different players. Yeah you kind of have to have good center. Play you kind of have to have good quarterback play. That's a reason why we talked about playing nucci being something. That wasn't necessarily going to work out for you long term now new played well tonight and that's fine Good for him. He was an honorable mention for us as mentioned but connor williams again this is. I don't know who this is. Most unfair to this is really unfair to the overall team. This is actually kind of unfair to connor. I mean because here's the other thing is connor. Williams is entering a contractor. Why are you going to have this dude..

Please don't find this player is going to pull the. Jj wha and say. Hey i just happened to be working out at four in the morning on punitively feel. I had no idea these cameras. Were here judging me in slow motion. Judging by what a coincidence this documentary filmmaking right this is real life. Just by the cowboys. This man was mad enough to stand up. Aaron donald and russell him to the ground i think might be connor williams because he better be in the weight room. Because if you're not man enough to stand up to number ninety nine and throw him down you better be a little brolich. You better be hitting those weights and i think maybe might be connor williams or you know. It's the end of summer when you get connor. Williams doing offensive line tackles tackling drills and pancake blocks in slow phantom cam with the sunset oxnard in the summer folks. If you've never been amazing official kickoff right to the football season. I know we had the hall of fame game and the hall of fame weekend last weekend. And that kinda gets things going.

"Scoreless 13 8 remaining in the first quarter and Andy Dalton in the Dallas Cowboys offense on the field. For the first time, starting at their own 28 yard line. With Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield with him three receivers to the left of the line. Dalton Schultz, the tied into the slot to the right along the right hands Don't leads. It gets the shotgun snap chest. I fires to the right side results with a hand grab along the sideline and out of bounds near the 33 in the arms of Ronald Darby, who runs him out at the 33 pick up five and it'll bring up second and five Schultz has been that big target for all of these quarterbacks that have played for the Cowboys this season coming into the game with 39 catches and Kevin, you just watch him. He runs that route. Almost like a receiver catches it very easily with his hands. Very comfortable out there. Schultz and Bell. The two tight ends will shift to the left side of the line on second and five at the 33. Don't under center, Elliot behind him, Elliot, get Carrie starts right one step to the left. He's close to the first down at the 38 yard line. Montas sweat and pull whole comer there and let's set the starters for Dallas.

"Same thing happened to him to happen to Connor Williams from Texas last year, Dallas took a guy that was once kind of considered like a prolific young offense of tackle ends of getting taken in day to and turns into a pretty solid guard in the long run. Hopefully. Yeah. Interested to see that. I think they deserve a lot of props because they held up. Well, and then the last thing I want to mention in your e said something Cleland feral looks really good in that game. And he's kind of a wildcard just because I mean like he's got the length and the speed off off the edge alike. But I mean, it's kind of a motor thing. And I mean, it really depends what you're getting game to game. So I thought he picked a great time to show out. Yeah. I mean, I mean at that point, hopefully, he kinda catches for the sake of his draft stock and future. He kind of catches the same wave as a Kevin Dodd did. Because that's what happened with Kevin died. But Kevin Dodd wasn't considered quite the pass rusher that Cleveland Farrell was up to this point. You know, Farrell had coming into the year showed he he's I've struggled with him on my board at one point. I had him like top eight AM N E kind of dropped down into like the late teens. And now he's kinda back amid low teens for me. I haven't seen enough tape the to really put a solid stamp on him. But I think he's going to go. I think it's pretty safe to say top twenty at this point is good pass rushers are hard to come by. And he's got the size and everything you want at that point yet in the point thing about Kevin Dodd is. I mean, he picked the perfect game to show out to a big reason for that as Alabama's right tackle. And that came just was not very good and was just absolutely flat. Abused by him. Like everyone in that game expecting to see shack Lawson. So yeah, r I p shack Lawson AP shack Lawson, and then you know, McKenzie Alexander. Thus corner to come out of that class. Of course. Not AB giraffe legs. Yeah. And he got hurt in that game early. I mean, I will say that his presence or lack thereof hurt Clemson in that first title game against Alabama. But that was like they didn't have Mike Williams at your because he had that freak injury ruining ran into the goal. Which was scary enough. And I'm really because I loved him as a as a prospect. I was glad to see him because he obviously recovered from that. And then the next year when they play in Tampa in the national championship game, especially on that last drive. He absolutely handled Alabama. They had no answer for him. He absolutely huge in that drive. I think like I think that's what made him go from like. Okay mic. Williams's pretty good. We've known Mike Williams is pretty good too. Like. Wow, Zor like Mike Williams as Rayleigh good. Yeah. He bodied up in that game in the he wasn't the only receiver who showed up then idea. Cain had a big game. And then hunter run from obviously hunter Renfro. I mean, the funny thing is the huge beating they threw down. The other night is the lease. You'll ever see hunter Renfro do against Alabama. Yeah. I mean, he he barely existed. He he was essentially what they used him for was to uncover coverages Trevor Lawrence could figure out what he was looking at. Exactly. I mean. So I mean in obviously worked and allowed. They really I mean, Ed T N, though, the one one last thing I want to mention then we'll get onto the coaching search because what you wanna talk about that in quarterbacks. I I always say that you never see Bana get beat to the edge by a running back. And if you're doing a game cherish it. Because it doesn't happen often. Like, they just they have so much speed from all three levels getting to the edge. And I feel it Clemson catch at the edge oblige in that game. And you kind of started to feel like things were different at that point. Because I mean at T N was how many touchdowns three. Yeah. Yeah. He he went to town. I like him a lot. He reminds me a lot of Wayne Allman..

"Hey, how's it going? What's going on? I was gonna get by predictions for all the games real quick. I'm a cowboy fan. Of course, I've got the chiefs in a close game. I think because of the weather is gonna play a big factor. It'll be lower scoring. I would take the under. I've got the patriots actually by at least a touchdown. I think the saints are gonna kill the eagles by at least two touchdowns. Wow. How do you feel so comfortable the saints killing the eagles by at least two touchdowns wait till he's been playing they killed them. Once this year old. I was Carson Wentz. I think it was. The saints in that dome or a different based on black eagles helped us out last week. It was hard to reform, but I've got the Cowboys beating the Rams twenty four twenty. And I'm really not even nervous about it. Really? I think early a little banged up. I think one good here from Jalen Smith. He might be done for the game. I don't trust Jared Goff yet. But yeah, I'm with you there. I just thank our defense is legit. I was confident I picked us to beat the saints. And all my friends told me, I was nuts. I think the Cowboys beat the saints as well. I was with you on that game. Yeah. Point. So I mean, it's our defense. If they the only thing that worries me is Aaron Donald going against Connor Williams or sofi, low that's going to be a mismatch because he usually lined up against the last guard and are left guard is our weak spot. I wish we could put Martin over there to play left guard for this game and block Aaron Donald. I think we're going to run the ball down her throat to think they can stop sake. They give up five yards of Kerry. I think your your sound and your now says it doesn't sound like, you know, a fan who's just going where the Cowboys so we can do. Reasons for why you think they can do it whiplash forever tweets, and it's gotta be the saints. They haven't lost a home playoff game since ninety three. The patriots are just below them because of ballot check and Brady and what they've done over the past two decades. Yeah. That. That's a team that you you. You definitely feel. Pretty good about doing that. How can you not like I said, how can you not feel? Good about what they've done. You're in you're out. That's that's the team.

I don't know about that. Care who they're playing right. I'm not saying they won't lose. I'm not saying they will. But I'm not betting on that. I think I'm going to leave that game alone. I'm really contemplating putting more money on the colts and the Cowboys today than than I already have on both of those teams, and that last caller and the more I've thought about that Cowboys game that one's really starting to stand out to me a little bit.

"He has been limited all week with a groin. He's I don't think he's been active at all this year. If mistaken, I think with maybe you're I I think he may have been a game or two when Goodwin wasn't active. But when they got Goodwin back. They did go back to Goodwin's or special teams guy. So that'll be one, you know, that's not necessarily a big impact. It's going to be a special teams thing. But exhibitor feel oh the last guy on the injury report was limited all week with an ankle injury. He is questionable for the game. I think. That they're dole with Connor Williams. Either way is kind of wouldn't I think everybody's kind of curing as that cutter. Williams is going to get that start and he played pretty well last week in Seattle. He's got a big match up this week against Donald dedom- can sue Michael Brocker. So I tweeted out earlier he better make sure he passes big boy pants for this. He's going to need them. Yeah. I know there's a lot of concern out if you had concern by at least on Twitter social media, people are a little bit concerned last week with Connor Williams going into the game as far as Tim being able to hold his own and make an impact against the Seahawks front because we we have seen him star. A good time stern his rookie season, which is to be expected. So, but yeah, it came in and played very well yet key block on third and fourteen then help Dacca debt I down. And he's looks like this staff. It is confident him in lucky. Said they're going to roll with him, regardless of what the hell this you feel. Oh, but I will say that having to THEO practicing. I don't I could be wrong. Can't remember by believe he practice last week. So having him practice this week even admitted capacities big as far as having another offensive lineman active in case, chronic Williams struggle with Casey goes down with an injure having to feel who's had his moments at times this season is big especially when you go when you're talking about front that features the best probably the best defensive player in the NFL. You have SU who can always make an impact when he when he wants to Brocker is another guy that's gonna get after the quarter guide is going to stop the run. So having many often lion as you can is never going to be a bad thing. Totally agree with you. There. We move onto the rims injury report. And like, I said, the Rams are very healthy. They only have four. Four guys listed on their injury report in out of those four three of them are good to go for the game. Blake countless is a de- defensive back. Don't know a lot about him. He could to go Todd Gurley. Obviously their star player was limited on Tuesday limited on Wednesday full on Thursday. He is good to go for the game. Whether he's one hundred percent or not is still in question and we've seen knee injuries crop up on players kind of Ralph a game or limit them during the game. So that's something to keep an eye on the runningback cassation exactly, you know, whether whether he's fully healthy or not you know that knee injury. It's something that was running backs. Even if it is healed, and it's healthy. You're thinking about it in the back of your head the whole time and he's had knee injuries throughout his career at Georgia and in the NFL. So that's something that, you know, even though it might be good in the back of his head. He's gotta be thinking. Can I make this cut? Am I going to be overturned? This corner.

"I just wonder if is that gonna give them chances the keep to leave and Marcus Peters combination has overall been a disappointment for the Rams, but they are healthier. Now. They're past defenses really improved right there. Run defense is still a joke. And I don't think they finished the season as as badly as. As a lot of people think I think played to kind of solid games. And I know it was against division, foes that aren't great teams any missile give him so much more. Ben for the doubt than you. Give Dak who has thoroughly outplayed Jared Goff for the past five weeks. I I would disagree that he Dak says when I was talking about negative plays. Andrew luck back is has so many negative plays. So many you're not even counting the ones that Jared Goff has just don't understand how you can watch them both play and say goff's fine. But I wouldn't went back has outplayed him. I ranked like it was a silly exercise. But this week I had to rank the quarterbacks and trustworthiness. These are my two least trustworthy quarterbacks going into the playoffs. The difference is one has a really exciting young mind as a head coach, and the other one has kind of a very old school stodgy one that I don't think it's going to help out that much. I don't think they've been the same. Since Cooper Cup went out. And I do like the matchup of Zeke Elliott verse a Rams run defense. That is not a great run defense any level in the Cowboys last week. Yet. You don't you can't run away from the Rams, but if they can get into their flow they had the ball for thirty five minutes last week the difference. I think part of the reason we're hard. I'm hard in the Cowboys is we saw how good they were in two thousand sixteen and it's like, maybe that's an unfair expectation. I mean Dakyns Zeke were leading one of the most efficient offenses we've ever seen. And now their offense at best is in the top twenty of the league if that it's not a special offense of line anymore. That's part of the problem. It's a it's an average offensive line. Because three of the five spots are average or worse and two of them play next to each other Joe looney, and it'd probably be Connor Williams across from Aaron downright, and you're gonna have to deal with there and Donald in sue, and that's part of the thing that made the Cowboys special, and that don't you think that Prescott coming off two of the best games? He's played. No. I don't think he played that. Well, I agree with you Markelle. I know what Greg has had three or four intercept passes. He takes a lot of sacks on his own. And when he misses throws you can pick forty also gets. Touchdown them from that counts too. Absolutely. And that's great compared to great other quarterbacks. Just for the deck Prescott. Experience. I have two games were two of his best week seventeen was one of his best games of the year. I thought last week was about his average game. The thing that worries you is like a third in to throw in a couple of throws in the red zone where he's not close. I mean, those are Freemen's where it's ten feet over the guys that in your thinking what's going on? Well, he's not a perfect quarterback. He'll never be as precise as some of these other superstars, but the one thing guy don't wanna be. I don't wanna be that guy. It's like, hey, it's not all about the numbers and all that. But I like Prescott because you know, what sometimes Prescott balls out and makes big plays a big. Fourteen his numbers across the good across the board are way better than golf's of Atlanta. I my point is you point out some misthrows last week. I'll point out the third and fourteenth scramble to the Golan that essentially won that game. He's playing with a lot of confidence. And I like I like Prescott as a player. I don't think he's a superstar. But my my feeling on this game gentleman is this has been a nice season for the Cowboys in a nice bounceback season in the season of growth, and they have a Levin wins..

"You know as the Cowboys are a step away from the NFC Todd and the last NFC championship game. They played in featured Reggie White college being the Packers as you mention. Twenty three years ago. So maybe gave some good luck there. But you know. The. Oh, yeah. So I agree with you. I think that I think you can catch. The Rams not catch them sleeping this way to put it. But you can catch them jumping, you know, because they wanna jump and that makes them great. You know what? I mean, you jump new you live by that. If you're the Rams you live by the chaos crates, but you die by the risk that you take. And so I think the key for the Cowboys. And this is something allergic to is. You gotta go play action. You have to. That's the only way you can keep Aaron Donald and check in keep that secondary check because they want to buy they want to jump. I mean, you're you're you're playing with snakes right now, you you've gotta find a way to push them up. This game could come down. You know, we talked about the irony associated with Connor Williams last week because he was taking the Seahawks wanted for Thomas. Connor Williams is going to have to have the game of his life. Because I think we all to degree can depend on tyrod Smith. Joe looney Zack Martin and Lyle Collins, but. It might be with you who knows. But if it's Connor if that left guard spot is going to have to have whatever it is the game of their lives because Aaron Donald is coming off a lot of rest, and he wants to prove a point. And he's got Wade Phillips dialing him up. And I think that play action you gotta do it. You've got to utilize it as much as Scotland hand doesn't want to. Well, I know Michael brokers. I mentioned him the defensive, and I didn't even we didn't even mentioned mccown sue they brought him in pre of the free agency. And. How's that? I mean how how someone like a non sue get overshadowed by another player? That's because Donald at good. I'm not really concerned about sued because to me when you watching he likes to take plays off. He's not the active guy. But he is a strong powerful guy. They can take space which when you're trying to run the football. And that's a tough task for the interior part of that offense in line is to move those kinda guys didn't you have Cory Littleton? He's a tremendous linebacker a key to leave is tremendously a back. So I think the offense obviously overshadows in air Donald overshadows the west rest of their defense. But yeah, you're right. I mean, you can't just you gotta keep you gotta slow down. You just you can't give them a chance to tee off. Let me just tell you this Dak Prescott which likes to hold the ball all know that you can't sit back there and hold the ball against Donald. He will find you. And he will seek you in. He will try to. Kill you. That sounds like a great movie. He will there's this great music by taking. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Wasn't the right live. But it's you get the points game. He gave me he doesn't have time to sit back there. Pat, the ball like it usually goes he's going to have to get rid of because Donald's going breathing down its throat. You mentioned a key to lead. He had a pick six on Daklak time. He faced him with the Broncos last season. That was really the last shellacking for lack of a better weather to Cowboys took. There's a lot of reasons to not believe in the couch. I think we all agree with that. Offensively. We both agree. Aaron Donald is the linchpin. He's the reason he's going to be what the Rams lean on lean on lean on if you're the Cowboys. What's your what's on a rudimentary level? What's your offensive game plan? Is it zeke's got to touch the ball fifty times?.

"I think was to Michael gal. It was just like all right, man. I like seeing this. He's playing DC cave. Michael Gallup once a week for like two months now, he's hitting them that's called improvement. And you talk about Donald getting after them. But think about how good this Dallas offense of wine. Yes, when they're healthy. And they're playing better. I think there's a chance we see Donald take advantage of Connor Williams firearms in this game. But I was really impressed with how the offensive line play against Seattle. They're passing off stunts. Well, everything else minus there was one Frank Clark sack where Williams just missed it. And I think that's the guy you can take advantage of. So if we have see Donald just devouring Connor Williams over and over again, and the Rams are unable to kind of bump their protections that way or excuse me, the Cowboys are then maybe the Cowboys came the ball. But if they managed to slow Donald down, and we I think over the last month or so there's reason to believe they can that. I believe they're going to build the move the ball through the air to and run defense for the Rams his bed at they. Absolutely. Should lean on Zeki? In this game. So I don't know the Rams are a better team. But I just see so many ways where this Cowboys team is built to kind of take advantage of where the Rams a week. I completely agree with you. I have one final point on this. Which is if everything goes wrong for the Rams offense, and they lose and Layton Vandereycken balls out Byron Jones as to win receptions. Nobody can stop anything from the Dallas front seven. What do you do if the freaking Packers or you're the cardinals? And you just basically put all your eggs in the basket that the what the Rams Niners do is the future. You're just looking at and going isn't good. Well, it's it's very different right? Because I'm writing about this for tomorrow. I'm writing about how the Rams us eleven personnel. Exclusive? It's all they do. And if you look at what Fluor did in Tennessee, it's a mix of Shanahan and of McVeigh and also just route concepts that aren't even native to either of those offense if system so I think that these guys cross-pollinate in more ways than we believe. No one runs the offense that Sean McVay runs. It's the most extreme choice of any offensive approach in the entire NFL. So think you're more going for the vibe of that coach rather than try to mimic. I know. But I'm saying, you're not you're, you know, for a fact ONA fact, but you are pretty sure you're getting a sub Sean McVeigh quarter app. Coach. You're getting a lesser version of Sean McVay, and if Sean McVay a Toco Billy bean in moneyball if his shit don't work in the playoffs. That's that's a very funny turnout. Obviously, I know that it's not that different. I don't want anyone, you know, playoff football is not incredibly different. But it'd be very very interesting to me how coaching hires teams react if Sean McVay is now over to in the playoffs and the Dallas events able to shut him down. I'll be curious to see what Dallas does against that offense because teams that have gone base against them for the most part of struggled because they're just going to throw the ball all over the place against you and bears are an exception to that the bears. Just stuck in base the whole game and the Cowboys the Rams had to answer for it. For the most part, though, the Rams are happy to see a team lineup with three linebackers against them. Because they're just gonna throw it because they're in eleven so if the Cowboys can stop the run with only Vandereycken Smith on the field that I think it becomes. Tough sledding for further. Rams, and I could see that happening. That would not surprise me. All right next. Let's get to chargers. Patriots. Right. He man, I'm jealous. Rivers rivers. Brady. Chargers. Patriots. I don't know. It's just awakened something in be brings me back to a decade ago. It's fun. I'm really really excited about this game. And the the one area that I'm kind of most curious about is what's going to happen with the chargers defense of personnel against the patriots. Because we saw them use those seven defensive backs last week..

"If they if they do take a half a false step, but those inbreeding rats run looks and and or or reacting late to Todd Gurley. And it's it's it's a big test. It's a huge test in the reason the Rams are here because typically, yeah, those guys do have a the quickness to make up for it. If they're off a half a step. I don't think that's true against the Rams. The Rams that precise of offense. That's what they're all about. Getting you off by half a step. And as an thinking about it out loud. I don't know how it will go. But knowing McVay the way, I know and having seen those cowboy linebackers. I bet they're going. To go after them hard for the Rams. They're going to make Vander edge and Smith have to read the field. I bet you we see some play action early in the game. When those linebackers come in young guys playoffs, Los Angeles spotlight. They're going to be juiced up play action them get them thinking about that. And then they're going to run the ball a lot in the second quarter. That's how I would guess the game goes. All right. Let's let's flip to the other side. Here Ramsey fence. Always we with Aaron Donald presumably Aaron Donald probably lines up over over over the left guard Connor Williams, the rookie who's had a a rough rookie year here. How can the Cowboys answer that? I mean, obviously, you can't block Aaron Donald with Connor Williams right now. No, you can't. But you can't block them with anybody. So you got it going to be the answers all the same ways. You've got other guys helping. A couple of things Donald did line up on the left side of Dallas's formation last year when they when these teams played in week four Dallas their staff needs to really studied the Rams fronts because I bet you you can dictate where he lines up based on where you put your tight ends. And even your wide receivers at times. So I would get comfortable with that. If I want to get him on Zack Martin, maybe I don't. But I think I do I want Zack Martin block Aaron Donald. I don't want Connor Williams. And in even if kind of Williams has double team help I don't want that match up. So I would look for how we can dictate Donald. If we can't something other teams have done lately on obvious passing downs is simply line. They're running back up directly behind the left guard, which is extremely aggressive for taking on Donald. But you put them in the backfield and just say, Donald you've got to beat the back and the left guard. That's the other solution. What's also getting some of those teams will still slide? The protection? Towards Donald when they do that. So the center in the guard block, Donald and then if he beats that then he has to deal with the running back that's a lot. That's that's a lot of layers of security in Donald's gotten through some of them. Yeah. I mean if you're looking at this game statistically Rams are not good defending the run. Cowboys are very good running. The ball Rams actually were were. They were the only team in the league that allowed more than five yards per carry this year. I mean, this seems like an obvious answer for the Cowboys here you can you can just run all over this team. And I would do that. Because in the offense for the Rams as off the field and the only criticism, I would have if you even called a criticism of McVay in the way, they coach at offense is sometimes I think they get a little bit impatient. With getting away from the run or wanting to get into some of their meat flashy past designs. I all things equal. You can tip them a little bit. Away from girly which unbalances them, but you have to make them feel like they're not getting enough opportunities. And you do that by not letting get the opportunities. Keep your offense on the field. All right. Eddie who you picking? I I'm picking the Rams still I say still because I'm hearing about all these cowboy fans that are expected to be at the game..

"On the boys dot com, if you're listening or watching this after Sunday night if you wanna head over there. And you know, I think the celebrity aspect of this is huge, obviously, you've got Zee versus Todd girl you've got Todd Gurley versus the hot boys. You've got Aaron Donald versus Zack Martin Joe looney and Connor Williams. You have Brandin cooks, you know, against Byron Jones, you have Sean McVay against Jason Garrett. You know, it wasn't that long ago. It's just a few months ago. If you remember after the Thursday night game that the Rams played against the Minnesota. Vikings feels like forever ago, but it was obviously earlier in the season apps. After that game Jerry Jones on through the fan. He talked about how he saw, you know, some similarities, and he talked about how he wanted the Cowboys to the like the Rams and everybody laugh and everybody said, you're crazy ridiculous. There's no way the cop is can be like that will guess what? The Cavs take on the Rams another great point a lot of you mentioning on periscope and Facebook is this tape on Austin's homecoming the Cowboys sent a sixth round draft pick to the Rams during the NFL draft to acquire on who had a big game himself on Saturday night against the Seahawks. Obviously I didn't have the punt return touchdown, but was very active in the punt game. This is kind of cool Amari Cooper is from the bay area. We know that air from the bay area spent some time in the Barrio obviously being drafted and playing for the Oakland Raiders. I think also you look at this this whole Cowboys run that they have been on really started. Obviously with the trading from Ari Cooper. But there was one guy who really kind of serves as the bookmark for when the season. Turn for the Dallas Cowboys and shockingly his name is Brad paisley? That's right. When Jason Garrett was that was a game three of the World Series. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong the game that went to eighteen innings when Jason Garrett was sitting there with Brad paisley the world made fun of him the next Sunday on NFL, FOX countdown. Jimmy Johnson said, hey, you know, what should be there should be doing his own things etcetera, blah, blah, blah. Everybody kill Jason Garrett for being the World Series that World Series game was in Los Angeles. Where the Cowboys will be it's a really interesting, you know, sort of assimilation and just kind of merging together of all these different details. Another point from fly. Michael on periscope. The Cowboys will run into Wade Phillips again the Cowboys are going to play their former head coach you look at this. Jason Garrett taking on not just the future of the NFL and coaching Sean McVay, but taking on his, you know, I don't even want to call him his teacher, but his his predecessor at the very least Wade Phillips. There's a. Lot going into this. You know, Jerry Jones with so instrumental in taking the the NFL the Cowboys back to Los Angeles. That was part of what finalized his hall of fame candidacy, and now this is here of this. It would be amazing. If this was the game that the Cowboys finally wanna put themselves back in territory, they haven't visited in over twenty years. It's a lot..

"They did one in three in those games. Seattle's run defense. Now jarran Reed had a great year at a breakout year for the Seahawks. It was a second round pick out of Alabama. I two seasons in the league. Three sacks this year alone. Ten and a half sacks five of those sacks in the month of December so blocking jarran Reed for an interior. That's a little banged up. Okay. Connor Williams is going to be in there. You think about Martin not one hundred percents? So we'll see how they blocked jarran Reed. But for Zeke, you'll Elliot said one in three in the games. He was contained aren't Seattle's run. Pence thirtieth in the NFL Alamos five yards per carry. You would think Elliott you'll see him. He'd meet a ball guy. You're going to see a lot of Zeke, yo l because that's going to be what I think is the difference in the football game. Take pressure off Dak Prescott make Elliott the key guide. Amari Cooper, quiet. Everybody's raving about Amari Cooper, last three games. He combined for eighty three receiving yards and zero touchdowns. This has got to be a bad Zeke and attack that defense where they are the most vulnerable run defense has been a problem Zeke Elliott should have a huge game. Yeah. You've got the individual leading rusher in the league Zeke Elliott against a great Seahawks defense. You've got the best rushing team in the league Seattle against Dallas. And oh, by the way of note against mobile quarterbacks this season. The Cowboys are oh six that includes a week three loss to the Seahawks. But of course, down the stretch Dallas is red hot and Seattle. Frankly is as well. So you've got those two matchups today and wild card weekend. Cole. To Texans that's four thirty five eastern game. You can see on ESPN Seattle in Dallas. That's in prime time. The under the lights there in Arlington. Chargers. Ravens tomorrow. We'll get into that one a little bit in Philadelphia. Chicago was well again, Bama Clemson here where I am northern California two days from now. And then this trend of NF got all these job would still eight jobs open right in the NFL, you had eight jobs open and many of them. There has been interest in current college coaches, yet some of these college coaches are not even interested enough to interview with the NFL jobs. Why we'll get into that a little bit to eleven eastern. We're going to bring in one of the legendary coaches of the last I would say twenty years in college football, Bob, stoops former Oklahoma head coach who I know had opportunities in the NFL never took him Lincoln Riley. Who he anointed essentially as the head coach has had opportunities to at least interview doesn't seem interested you sign a brand new. Deal. So we'll talk to Bob stoops kind of about that dynamic too. And what's going through the minds of college coaches as it pertains to what the NFL does. Or does not offer them. It's an interesting conversation. So Bob stoops coming up eleven eastern we'll get into the Alabama Clemson game again with part of the crimson tide radio network and former Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson would just getting started mailman. We haven't even gotten into Jimmy Butler. Again, again, round three and remember Brett Brown thought he could fix them. We'll get into that next Dorian Mel ESPN radio. ESPN? Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in his hockey skates. Pete tractors and practiced until one day when he was forty seven feet realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash.

"So why do you care about that? They didn't need the game. They're not worried about it gets a bad sign defense because I thought the offense played pretty well in that game. Drove it. Yeah. Big zero zero zero dry fourteen play drive fifteen IV road drawing. Touchdown pass blocked field goal. Uncalled pass interference. That could have been seventeen to nothing. We could be having even different to go. Go shopping. If you've got somebody else's speaking right now, somebody just launched into his diatribe against soliloquy. So then we had James come to Jerry world. And would you believe James Winston had seven drives up ten plus plays? That is not good defense to me against James Winston, you have little to no respect for what they do right on through to drag. But okay, I get your point. And then just last week with my defense plan everybody actually trying it looked like to me ally. Manning and company put up. Up thirty five points and four hundred and forty one yards and went nine of eighteen on third and fourth down against my defense. That scares me that rocked me. I don't like that in my my pass rush. I used to love it. And all of a sudden my man DeMarcus Lawrence Taylor that I used to call now he's just deal is in he's on the DL like he disappeared. He must be on the DL because I don't I don't really hadn't played for a month. I don't know where he is. Randy, gregory. I could just maybe I could call him, Gregory, Randy, right? Because he I don't know where you tell you what you'll see Randy irregular. When least expected he's gonna jump off sides or he committed appeal to the east got potential to do just that. And what has been my biggest target on this show? This year was the rookie left guard named Connor Williams. Second round pick. I have never loved and guess what? Boys and girls he's back in the lineup at left guard because Xavier sue up. Hilo is out with an ankle. And he's listed as doubtful. And I'm pretty sure he's just gone. So all of a sudden Connor Williams this give the tone style that he drafted second round draft pick has played some lately because he had pinch hit for Zack Martin. But but again could that be Frank Clark? Do you know Frank Clark is hellish pass rusher? What do you have fourteen and a half sacks? Yeah. Read another tackle. That's what he's going to have to worry about Saint Nick, Alabama's second round pick and twenty six tenths. If you got two of them common and all the sudden Connor Williams who's a little undersized and a little under strenght to me. He might just be looking like this the whole day like people running my miam- and that scares me for deck sake. And yet I just piled on with objectivity to your argument. All that said, I still love my football team. And I love my chances. And my team is going to win this game twenty to thirteen because motivation is on my side. What did I tell you what my team took off from three and five it went on a revenge to or just like Michigan went on revenge tour that you covered often during the college football season. My team said we gotta get even with all these people in a row, and they got even with Philly twice. And they got even with washing Washington for that that horrendous call that went against them. At the end of the game. Remember that slammed? Now, but they got even with washing on Thanksgiving Day. They got even with Atlanta Atlanta for that the Bockel last year when dad got sacked eight times, and they got even with all the doubters and the naysayers in the critics and the cowboy haters who said New Orleans is going to blow them off the field on Thursday night football.

"Joy train would flame that crowd for not as a player, but when he was an announcer for simply not showing it makes spoiled fan bases that have seen the highest level. The sports have a hard time getting really excited when you're like going for that eighth win. But that's not the Cowboys. We look at them that way, but they haven't even been to the Super Bowl in twenty two tree today. But they aren't they have that tradit. I mean, their fan base thinks that way, I don't you think older segment of the but. The I also think that this is a team like you think when they played back in week three what we thought of them. We thought of the Cowboys is kind of this boring middle the road team. We thought of the Seahawks is kind of dead in the water. Brandon Marshall played a huge role in that game. Earl Thomas played a huge role in that game late in Vander was a backup to Sean Lee. Who's the number one Cowboys receiver that week Mike Allen Austin was back in the mix? They need to get Amari Cooper back back in the mix though. And that is a bit of a concern for me that three straight games. He has been very quiet had a cost headed drop last week. I don't it's not like a major problem. I don't think, but it's a little concerning that he's been so quiet. I think one thing that could carry over from that game from week three that feels like a million years ago is that scout the Cowboys offensive line is at best banged up. I mean Zack Martin is taking a lot of practice rest. I'm not sure one hundred percent healthy Tyron Smith is not been one hundred percent healthy this season. And they bull. Lead dallas. And that I meet if they were up twenty four to six and sack Prescott five times. And they leaned on nothing back. Then they had a lean on zeal Elliot through the air. They had no wide receivers. They're a different offense now, but you do need to be able to find a way to protect Prescott who played well last week. It looks like Connor Williams is going to start at guard for the guy's name. I'm not even going to try to say see a fool Fula and Connor Williams has basically been a disaster that who they took in the second round over overstating. I mean, he's not been a disaster. He's been one of the lowest rated guards by PF in the league guy. But watch the games he has got a bench for it was last week. He he was one of the reasons they scored thirty six points. A disaster would be like they couldn't even move the ball. Yeah. But you can have bad offensive line. Play in score thirty six points. Dak Prescott did it. I mean, you couldn't have played worse than Cam fun. They're left tackle didn't that game. Who just got abused over and over and over and acted a good job. And that was a good move for them to play them throughout that. Because I hope that he's feeling a little MO Joe because that was like kind of the deck Prescott. You wanted to see like these two quarterbacks are very similar in some ways in that they struggle with figuring out the balance of how long to hold the ball and went to make a play. And they both take a lot of sacks that are their own fault. Russell Wilson is kind of mastered this game in his playing at a really high level. But I think if Dak Prescott is going to be his best Prescott. It's going to be very much. Like russell. I would take Russell Wilson one hundred times times, of course, similar styles. Russell Wilson is that a much higher level. But I think that those throws on the move that you know, that that last week..

"But let's move on. Let's talk about left guard left guard is an interesting spot on the Cowboys entering Saturday's showdown with the Seattle Seahawks. It's kind of poetic showdown when you really consider. The way the Cowboys are tied to Seattle. It is unknown. Whether exhibitors feel will play for the Cowboys I left guard, which would mean potentially that Connor Williams. Cowboys rookie second round draft pick at the university of Texas those Sugar Bowl champions, the Connor Williams would get these start at left guard. We saw Connor start Aleph guard for the Cowboys early on in the season, and then exhibit came in for him. And it kind of had a Ron Leary Lyle, Colin sort of add to that we talked about at the time and so Conor coming, and I think would give some people confidence and would give some people trepidation kept on Saint on. Parents has Connor Williams will get the start. I think Justin print says God, no on Facebook live. So I do think that that is sort of an indication at you know, where things stand that some people are enthralled by the idea of Connor Williams starting some people are petrified of it. It is poetic though, at the very least. Because if you'll remember it was the draft pick of the Cowboys utilized on Connor Williams that the. Battle seahawks. All teams wanted for Earl Thomas and the Cowboys were only going to not trade that pick to them if Connor Williams available to them, obviously, he was so it is kind of bit. The very least interesting how sort of cosmetically aligned Connor Williams as between these particular teams in the National Football League in that they would meet in the play offs. And that he would be such a critical part of the lead up to it. In terms of who's gonna start who's not going to start for what it's worth while on the subject of wagering. I would bet the Conroy starts as well. And I think the Connor certainly played better as the season when along the regular season. And I think you know, I think that's your best five right now. I think that's your your best possible offense von combination with Williams in there. And I think across your fingers and you helped at that's enough. There was a question on periscope from Ben freaking Gomez regarding the Cowboys offensive play calling and play design and offense in general during their game in their win in New York last week, and this has been a subject as Ben alluded to. His comment on periscope. That has been all over the place on Twitter this week conspiracy theorists. It might be a little heavy to call it conspiracy theory by perpetuators of interesting ideas and interesting, topics. I know that this is something that came across during the game as well. If you are a member of Kabul's Twitter, the best Twitter sphere in the land, obviously. And this idea that that I've been you know, sort of revolving around is that Jason Garrett had a deeper hand in the cookie jar when it came to the Cowboys offense play calling often play design in New York. It looked a lot like if you watch the Cowboys in New York a different offense. We talked about recently this week and all over the place was calm about how the utilization of tight ends by the Cowboys was foreign they were not a team before Sunday utilize their tight ends in the middle of the field.
