So new put on your news break at okay. Nice better does. Okay. Eat a little scoop and you'll look so good in why did I give him that man I look so dumb in the hat and he looks beautiful and handsome. That's more very upsetting. You have a hat head. Yeah. You couldn't hat spirit upsetting you don't look. So he kind of looked. He's GonNa Rob Lowe. Thing going. Yeah. I'll tell you do you totally literally. Like blow literally look like you look like Rob Lowe and Tommy boy. That's exactly what he looks like right now I'm here. Jim Carey, I'm hearing from Haley. Masks Jim Carey you know or. Right as are dumb and dumber Jim Carey. I listen to my friend. So here's I, want you and your news breaker hat. Is there a chance alshon Jeffery does not play for the Eagles this year either? At this point, I don't believe. So around Jeffries contract is fully guaranteed, basically guaranteed for this year, they've restructured as deal about a year ago, and the commitment they made was while he was do less money over the life at the contract, he has guarantees in twenty twenty that make it very prohibitive for them to move on from Alshon Jeffery this year. So let's finish thought then. Alshon Jeffery. undrafted eight percent leagues to Sean Jackson. ADP of wide receiver, Fifty, seven undrafted, nearly sixty percent of Leagues Matthew which of these wide receivers represents the best value in your drafts. I actually think Alshon. Jeffery. Everyone's like about Jalen Reagan, but I'm worried he's going to be more deshaun. Jackson. Like which is. He's he'll be big-play dependent. I don't know that he's going to have consistent fantasy. Listen I. Think the past catchers you want on the eagles this year. Are Zach Ertz in Dallas Goddard. But for me, I mean Alshon Jeffery. Even if you missed the first six games when he's out there and he's a little bit too touched independent at this point of his career. But like he's basically free and we know when they get getting close, he's one of the guys that Carson Wentz always looks for. I'm with you one hundred percent and I get it. There are so many reasons not the draft Alshon Jeffery to his caution is going to be heated by a lot of people smartly. But Yeah undrafted eighty percent of these, you might use your last round pick on. alshon Jeffery for a guy who at one point was a top what twelve to eighteen wide receiver in the League depending on the week nine, thousand, nine, hundred, and thirty, nine games. He averages over seven targets a game. Based on diary forty, nine I actually kind of want to move alshon Jeffery further up the ladder depending on when he is activated from the Yup Bliss. Right. Let's talk about these these titans in Philadelphia and let me just start by saying I. Don't think that there has been slander about earth this off season no far from it. But I? Do think there's been a lack of appreciation Zach. ECKERD's might be one of if not the most reliable. Tight ends in the NFL? The guy has been an absolute toward for for Philadelphia whenever he's played over the past three years. Heck even longer than that past six years have long. He's been league. Catches on passes. Incredible. Play's through pain. The dude is an absolute he is. Is a rock for the right, right? I still have tight end three matthew, but I think some people are wondering the elite days of Zacher does a fantasy football tight end over. I don't think his days as an elite tight end are over, but I do think that his days as a top three guy maybe so like. So if you're if you're watching this, you see that I have met tight enforced. So I moved Mark Andrews ahead of him at is here and there's two reasons why number one is I love the upside of Mark. Andrews. I think there's a very good chance that Mark Andrews leads the one of the best passing offense as the NFL and target share this year random, it's going to be him or Markey's Brown and so so. As opposed to, there's many mouths to feed in Philadelphia the concerns on earth is right. So you mentioned the injuries is missing at least one game in for the last five seasons. You mentioned the upside here, right. So here's a guy that had no more than sixty five receiving yards and ten or fifteen games. Last season became a little bit touched on board dependent for my taste given where he's being drafted. And then I thought this was really interesting that I found the percentage of games where where he had under thirteen fantasy points, twenty, seventeen to twenty, one, percent, two, thousand, eighteen, forty, four, percent, twenty, nineteen, forty, seven percent. I can tell you that the Eagles Front Office and their coaching staff. Love love love with a capital. L., Dallas scattered. Zakar, they do all respect records, but I'm just telling you that got it is something very special, and once again I think we saw God. It emerged last year very quietly dowse. got. It was a top ten fantasy tight end. I'm just telling you. I think again I, think targets here comes down a little bit for accurate. Again, I haven't four. You have to nitpick this thing, but why did I move Mark Andrews Ahead Zach? Ertz. That's why I think the emergence of dowse got continues to eat into his production a little bit as does the rest of the weapons around him and I think Mark Andrews. Andrews has more upside as what could be the focal point of one of the best passing. Offense is the NFL Eagles. The best passing offense too. But I'm holding steady on Zakar as a firm top three tight option fantasy football. This year. I, will note I. Wonder where that you gave about percentage of games under thirteen points where that moves of its twelve point as opposed. Opposed to thirteen points because I can live with twelve points out of my tired and weekly, and he did last season lead tight ends and targets per game. So we still is a volume vacuum in Philadelphia you mentioned, but they didn't have anyone again. We he was competing with Greg Ward, former, San Antonio Commander Greg Ward for targets, and we've always concerned about the wide receiver. Receiver injuries. Let's quickly Dallas Qatar because he's right now being drafted his tight and nineteen in terms of ADP Daniel, I, want to ask you this rank top ten as a starter. You would feel comfortable going into a season dowse goddard as you're starting tight end. Yeah. I decided to just punt completely on the tight end position and I like what Dallas got it brings. When we look at these wide receivers that they've gotten like we've talked about how Carson Wentz has more weapons at his disposal this year than last year. But even with that Dallas got her ends, accurate seem to be the best two options on that offense for him. So I still think they're gonNA find ways with two tight and package not including mile. Sanders. Obviously. Sure. So. I still think they're gonNA use a lot of to tighten packages I still think they saw what they can get out of him. So if I'm going to say wait on the tight end position and some of the other guys go I personally love getting Dallas Gutter towards the back end, and then hopefully you pair them, you know someone in waivers or something like that. But I like them with everybody here likes a talent we talked about the eagles play more snaps last year in terms of. Of percentage with two tight ends on the field and is accurate ever gets hurt like immediately steps into that role and becomes thousand percent..

"Season, that imperative, a little bit, the following year. This last year, he got hurt out of the gate we to. He had an injury that a calf injury that cost him a couple of weeks. He came back. He was out again later in the season, then he had a foot injury that placed on I. R. and he had surgery in December a list. Frank? Surgery. Link. Time. Line on the recovery process here. We don't have a lot of details about the surgery, but again, for an older wide receiver having this complex of a surgery, you really don't know what he's going to be able to do win. The season starts placed on the PUP list to start training camp. I. Think it's going to be progression back for him. Him, and again, he's one of those that we really want to see him in action before we feel confident about what he can actually do as wide receiver this year. Of course, you have to mention Sean, Jackson to right because he had season that really was cost completely by this grain injury that he had early on and he ended up not playing. Multiple Games and having surgery in December to repair that core muscle, the the groin injury that he had all the reports are that he's doing great now. But again, you talk about an older receiver, he's thirty three I. Think He's played all sixteen games only twice in his twelve years, and if you look at the most recent seasons, that's where he's missed the most time largely soft tissue injuries, Hamstring Groin Abdomen, and you have to wonder if Wow somebody's back in business. Find your one of US had to show up and be prepared for the show today obviously needed to beaming. All right. Anyway you have to, you have to be a little concerned about the risk factor for John Jackson. Even if he starts season the healthy because he hasn't been able to finish lately. You the question I always ask you. Even with a late run flyer, would you draft Alshon Jeffery Alshon Jackson on any of your fantasy teams this year. I'm standing probably not now, but you know me risk averse. I. Think I know a lot depends on what Alshon is doing at the end of training camp. If might draft is late if I'm doing it now, why would I because there's potential that he doesn't even start the season. Into, Sean Jackson. Again, I don't know that it's worth it for me to take a gamble on someone who's had that many soft tissue injuries. I'll the young we'll talk to interesting. Interesting moment to get involved in some trivia. But I'm sensing. There was zero clean bells of health right there. On the Eagles wider. Let's talk about the fantasy matthew and we had this conversation yesterday with the giants and they have three wide receivers are on the fantasy radar and we sort of assigned which one was the best value. So we'll do the same. Same with the eagles. Jalen Ringer was the twenty first overall pick out of TCU going wider..

"Carson Wentz is there There a reason to believe that because of the offensive players around him, because of his health that Carson Wentz is a strong candidate to finish the season as a top five quarterback because both you and I have outside our top ten identically at the number eleven quarterback spot. So we right there at eleven and I think he's he's fine to go anywhere from eight to twelve. My concern and listen I. I've just from a general standpoint, Carson Wentz can play. Play I. Mean last year, I thought this is impressive stat last year. He was the first player in NFL history tab four, thousand passing yards in season without a five hundred yard wide receiver. Again, I mean we talked at the top of the show Lake I, mean, they were all out Greg. Ward. Who had like I? I forget. What was he like an Orlando Apollo? I forget where he had started his. Active, squad guy. I mean, he was AF. I mean seriously. So. They just they were. They were just trying to find bodies. You know. So and it was a revolving door there. So there is that and he's we've certainly seen them have fantasy success and it's a good offense. Lot of weapons in Doug. Peterson is a pass first coach is. quarterback comes from the Andy Reid School. He is a pass first fantasy friendly coach. So certainly that's all there i. mean. Again, I have met, I'd eleven my concern on Carson Wentz. Yes. I understand you're saying he's unlucky. He's not injury as lucky but. Until until he gets lucky, he is somebody that has struggled to stay on the field luck or not right He's a guy that doesn't seem to have a ton of upside at least so far like you know last year. had only one top five finish right and. Thursday kyle text me. He was San Antonio Commander. Was San Commander so there you go shotitute the A. F.. And the other thing is, by the way like I feel like the rushing has gone down a little bit thirsty, Kyle. What's the? What is the rushing on Let's go to the bunker. Thirsty. What is the rushing on? Carson. wentz. Since he came into the NFL because I feel like it's gone down. Hit seventy five attempts last year. So I mean that's that's pretty good. Sixty, two, I'm sorry. Sixty to Russia Times but he's been oscillating in that three to four attempts per game routine. So not too much upside. The only thing that you mentioned that I might push back on though is the upside and you're right the stat about him having only one top five finish last year is notable. But I do I mean. We saw we we have seen maybe pick carson wentz before I. Mean a few years ago when he was probably going to be the NFL's MVP, if not for the week fourteen ACL tear. So now if you're GonNa now, we will then why don't I have them higher my quarterback ranking. Why don't you have them hiring your quarterback ranked simply that if you look at the players that are ahead of him, you're talking about quarterbacks and. Are Much, more dynamic runners. Much more than. Have, much more dynamic weapons or a combination of the both right. So like Tom Brady got better weapons obviously around him in Tampa Bay. Guy Drew brees. Same thing in the world, I mean, maybe not totally better. But Still Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara by themselves are excellent. So and then you've got guys like. Layer column Murray. WHO's a great runner, etc. So. There is. Even I mean, here's the other thing. Here's the here's. There's two other things here. That are so or even you know Matt Ryan So Matt Ryan by the way. WHO's another guy that's going ahead of that I have ranked ahead of. Carson. wentz. Because I think the Falcons GonNa have bad defense and once again Julio Calvin Ridley we like Hayden hearst Todd Gurley out of the backfield. Here's the other thing I, think the eagles defense could be really good this year. So that was the so I just don't think they're gonNA shoot outs as well. They may have less opportunities like last year the at stat that we flash on a graphic for those that are watching the The live term, but attempt, which is not really like an often used quarterback stab and it's pretty notable which chances has how we described it, which is attempts plus rushing attempts, passing attempts and rushing attempts useful for fantasy football. It is a volume game and a lot of ways. So I, think we see it the same way on Carson, Wentz and interesting player that is ranked depending on who you follow somewhere between eight and twelve among quarterbacks. But it's a really really compelling conversation surrounding his running back, which is Mile Sanders, and his ADP right now is seventh amongst running backs in Matthew. I, I know this because you've already talked about this in some form on offseason podcast. Mile Sanders has been overdrafted in your estimation, one, hundred percent, and so what do we very clear mile sanders is a really talented NFL player, and so I'm he he's going to be on my hate list this year and people are going to be like. You know like people are GonNa Freak out when miles sanders has a good year, he's going to have a good year. They're gonNA throw that back in my face and I'm just going to be like, yeah. But I don't think he's going to be worth a top seven pick, which is where he's going I haven't running back fourteen sixteen secret squirrel hasn't fifteen. So we all have as a mid tier rb to. To and it's not about the talent, but it's about the scheme here. Doug Peterson in four years as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles Okay I think he's had missive I'm finally exact stat here I want to say I think he's had four different games I'm sorry, only three times. It's only three only three times in Doug Peterson Eagles coaching career.

"Now? Not only? Is it possible? It is. Yeah. He is like, so my love hate list I'm working on my love hate list right now, my preseason. Love hate list. And Amari Cooper is going to be on it. Now to be clear I, think Amari Cooper is a very talented NFL. Wide Receiver I think Mario. Cooper is GonNa have a very good fantasy football year. Right? We just talked up back and he's going to be the number one receiver for Dak. But love hate is all about ADP right and fantasy football's all about finding value, and so I don't think you can have the Amari Cooper conversation without talking about Michael Gallup well. Hang on. Let me do this right. Do this. So so last year. Last year for the season per game averages Michael out missed a couple of games due to injury. But for for the season. Mario. Cooper four point nine catches a game. Gal four point seven Cooper seven point. Four targets again, Gallup eight point one. Cooper, seventy four yards a game gal seventy nine points. Seventy nine yards a game. Cooper fifteen fantasy points per game fifteen, point four, Michael Gal, Fifteen, point two, and then you look at the post eight week, the boast week eight by Michael. Gal got injured early in the season. He was up and down they had a they had a bye in week eight from week nine on. From week nine on. Michael Gallup. had more targets, more yards and more touchdowns. He averaged fifteen point, three fantasy points per game. Amari Cooper twelve point, nine fantasy points per game, and I'm not sitting here field telling you that Michael Michael Gallup is a better player than Amari. Cooper. Even that. He's going to have a better fantasy year than Amari Cooper. What I am telling you though is that at the respect of ADP's Michael, Gallup is a much better fantasy football value than Amari Cooper I. think they're going to be very close in production, and I'd much rather have Michael Gallup who's currently going wide receiver thirty one that Amari Cooper who's going as wide receiver ten, remember Amari Cooper last year, five different games. Games with under seven fantasy points the inconsistency for a guy that you're using a top ten pick on at the position is concerning to me. Yeah. So to illustrate that point, you just made at the very end one step further. There's five game. Do you just said that? Amari. Cooper had seven or fewer fantasy points actually under seven points. There are nine wide receivers being drafted head of Mark Cooper right now in terms of ADP. Those nine receivers combined for eleven games last year of seven or fewer fantasy points. So if you make it the top ten, it's sixteen total games and five of them belong to a mark. Cooper. There's just such good value, his weekly finishes last year here, some of them from starting in week one, sixteen, Thirty, eight, thirty, five, three, ninety, four, seventeen, thirteen, four, fifty, four, Ninety, eight, twenty to twelve, eighty, eight, fifty, five, twenty, eight, I wanNA. WanNa I. Think we agree right excellent now, and that was, and that was in a year in which the cowboys offense was clicking in which Dad dad had a monster year like again, right? We both are Pro Amari Cooper, the player, neither of us are, Pro Amari Cooper, the fantasy football value. I think that's a fair way of putting it. I'm a little bit less optimistic Michael Gallup than you are. I. Do want to note that. Blasphemy. I was ahead make your life. Also, he he finished the season with the best game of his career. Right? He had six catches, three of them were for touchdowns. So some of his last year data I think is a little bit inflated because of that, and so wide receiver thirty one. As you references ADP I've got him at thirty, four, year, twenty, two now i. just think there's a possibility that you talked about CD lamb earlier like Michael. Gallup. Had A ton of targets last year that was really solid. But how much does CD lamb sort of bite into the value of Michael Gallup? Is it possible? The CD lamb takes away. I Dunno mean. Let's say whatever Randall Cobb targets were plus twenty. This season like twenty extra targets go away A. Maybe, but I, think that that double edged sword, right are are there Does he lose some target share to see CD lamb. Okay. But then there's less defensive attention. Right? Does Gallup get some maybe some more single coverage or get in a in a more favorable spot because they have to deal with. CD. Lamb and away, they didn't have to with Randall COBB. Worth noting last year that there were six games last season in which Randall Cobb ran thirty or more route. So we'll call that A. A healthy week just to right in those six games, he averaged thirteen point, two fantasy points per game. That's wide receiver thirty, one on a per game basis. Again, I'm so that's CD lamb. so that's what Randall COBB did last year, she lamps currently going as wide receiver forty, five more upside there. My point here field is that I believe this offense is explosive enough that it can support three fantasy relevant wide receivers. Given. That carling the third fantasy relevant wide receiver as a top forty guy. Yeah, I. Think it. I. Think as possible lamb reach his top forty weekly. I'm not drafting him as such right now, going into the season's because they're just such great depth at wide receiver spot across the. NFL. There is the one I will push back here on Michael Gallup. I understand what you're saying in terms of staffing inflated. If you take numbers out of it. I just think the kids and impressive player really impressive from from a from from the going into his third year in the NFL. He's improved every year. I? Just think he's. He's a big guy runs routes. Well, clearly has a connection with back. Wide Receiver Twenty, two, his his ADP as wide receiver thirty one. So I am I'm in on Michael Gallup, what am I guys this year will be on the loveliest and I certainly love Michael Gallup. When you compare his ADP to Amari Cooper, I would agree on that part of Matthew, we like to tight ends on the show every once in we do now you get and I was told this has been told to me specifically, you have thirty seconds talk about Blake, Darwin Ready Hang on, let's put thirty seconds of the clock I gotta right here, Squirrel. Away before we start, can we to box it? Can we to box, put a put a timer and there we go. All right. Secret Squirrel. There you go. There's your. There's your I ready.

After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months
"In the National Ball League for the soon to be ex Washington Redskins among the three teens who played in the NFL. He is Brandon Noble, played defensive tackle in the National Football League, and he joins me and Courtney right here on ESPN Radio Brandon, many people did not believe that this day would come. That Washington changed their name from the Redskins. Whatever that name is going to be, but you play for that organization. You know exactly what that Brian has always meant to that team. And to that city. What are your thoughts about the Redskins no longer about to be Redskins when it comes to being a football team with that name in the NFL. I mean, it's definitely Freddy. Hard to wrap my head around, right? So I grew up in Virginia down the virginity Redskin fan base there. You know what I spent seven years. In the lead. We're basically in the NFC East. Whether I played for the Cowboys on the run on just I mean, growing up a football fan, right? I mean, Russians are part of NFL tradition. Just the name right so So you know Cowboys Redskins Cowboys Eagles Cowboys giants like that. The whole thing like that is that is that my childhood like Joe Gibbs is in the heart and all that stuff, so it's really hard to wrap your head around. I know there was a strong push a few years ago in and dance cider time, fended it off, kind of where we are right now 2020 and you know there's a lot of financial pressure from stuff like that, and it looks like he's gonna do it. Yeah. After 87 years. It took just two months for this whole thing to come to fruition where Something's going to be changed, as you know, growing up in that area and playing for the franchise. This name change has been discussed for decades. I'm curious what you were a player. How often did that topic come up in the early two thousand's about a name change? And do you remember maybe the first instances as a player either being asked about it by media members or where it was truly being discussed? Well, you know, I mean, it was. It was definitely kind of it was circled around every once in a while, and I think you know such a different climate. Uh, you know, back in the 19 hundreds at the early two thousand's, we were in it and everything has become No So political now, so just kind of you know, here, there, it's you know what? This night of faces time It took a long time definitely did. It's definitely something that's been talked about for a long, long time. You know that that fan base is not going to be happy. But at the end of the day, you know, look, you know it's capitalism, right? I mean, he felt the pressure that accent from all from all the big sponsors. You know Amazon self, just about body, right? I mean, that's really what it boils down to is a business. Know any treat it like that, and he's going to do it. And I did it a same time. I'm still gonna have a tough time with whatever you know. Hopefully the warriors or something simple like that. So it's not too far away from kind of, you know the theme. I guess it's it's so it's hard to wrap my head around.

"Playoffs. That's right and they had to win this game to make the playoffs. Cowboys came into the season with super bowl aspirations but heading into week seventeen. They've asked him downgrade to layoff desperation. New Orleans even get to the postseason doesn't take care of Washington. Annual Eagles lose is to the giants after last week loss cowboys Pro Bowler demarcus Lawrence said quote. Talent without direction is nothing at all star. What was your reaction in quick march that he was telling me like it is? I mean that's all I know. He walked it back a little the next day but he meant what he said. They are greatly talented but they lack direction and look March. Lay with our colleague. Here Fox has been doing recently. been talking about doing a great job with this unique a healthy fear of your head coach. The Patriots have a healthy fear of bill. Belichick this spurs have a healthy fear of Gregg Popovich. You need that to the permeate your culture and in Dallas. That can't be the case. Because Jerry Jones has neutered Jason Garrett because players know certainly to superstar players players. I can go around Jason and go straight to Jerry. If I really need to talk about something if I really have a problem with Jason I can go to Jerry and talk to him about it. That takes away the authority of the head coach. And to be honest Jason Khanna said the same thing when he when he we've kind of tried to throw Kellyn more into the bus. He said himself that. Well when at four thousand eight play when Amari cooper a randall. COBB aren't out there. Well Kelly Moore more has the final authority ultimately. That's neutering yourself that's showing. You're not as the head coach providing direction. Okay by making that comment. You imply that you thought you should have got one one or both of those guys out there. But why didn't you do it. Why didn't you give direction? Finally I'll say this nick Dez Bryant Nano. He's not the greatest source or whatever but he comes out on twitter a he is said that Jason Garrett can't relate to black players. He's you know he's like tweet. Saying Jason Gear wasted his prime now. Who is desk talking to? He's he's not he's going off his own experience but you know he is talking to people in that locker. He's got friends he's got boys that are still on that team and he is probably saying in tweeting way. He's hearing from them even if he has an axe to grind or from a place of an agenda. Eaten informed agenda. If you will this this might be a fair criticism. In fact I think it is a fair criticism of Jason Garrett demarcus Lawrence is the single worst messenger possible for it and Marcus. Lawrence Lawrence has gotten a total pass. The last half of the years. The cowboys fallen apart. Cowboys were five and three once upon a time in those seven games since since then the highest paid player in the history. That cowboys has not one SEC. But half I can't do a half with my hands but you won over to the he's been a non factor. We talk about Zeke's contract which is about the contract Dak hasn't gotten yet we talk about the Jason Garrett's lack of a contract extension tamales. These guys demarcus Lawrence who should be noted and by the way I understand why he did it. But after being franchise tagged waited Davidge shoulder surgery until until he had his new contract which I supported the time and I understand why he did it. But when you do that and you know you're potentially going to have missed at the beginning of the season or start off as missed first game. I think it was then the ideas. You're going to ramp it up at the end during that Eagles game their biggest game of the year so great job by our colleague. Joe Buck and Joe Troy Taunt demarcus Lawrence about how he hasn't made a play and he actually got a quarterback kit. And it's like Oh there's demarcus Lawrence and talent without direction that might be the case for the offense for the schematics you. You're a pass rusher man. Your job is the most straightforward board of any job in full attack the quarterback as we told a bill.

"Concerning real quick is a moment ago. I I the because I want people to kill Russert. I said Janas took seven threes. When you said he was great? You the embiid with who you're saying there. I didn't want okay. I don't want people to versus me. I was unbelievable Christmas. And send it to your question question General Wolfe. How concerning is this injury? Well it's massively concerning if they allow it and Lebron allows it to get worse and deteriorate and this is where the I mean. The two groin injuries on Christmas Day One year apart is obviously as you mentioned an odd coincidence unfortunate one. This is nowhere near the issue. The one last year was last. Year was the first significant injury of his career. Sure this is a little nagging thing that NBA guys Lebron included always have throughout the course of a season over the course of a couple of seasons. But it must be addressed and this is where you need some of those adults in the room. Frank Vogel and his very veteran coaching staff to pull Lebron aside and say man. I know you've box yourself in a bit with the load management comments and you are going going to be opening yourself up to criticism if we sit you but you have new set it. I play if I'm healthy right now. He's clearly not one hundred percent healthy. Do not worry about any of the noise and Lebron's been a great player as far as ignoring the noise certainly over the latter half of his career after driving it did bother him in the first half of his career. The only way this laker season goes sideways is if at the end of it. Lebron or Anthony Davis are. We're not there in full force and this is where while I don't think you're seventeen. Eight turns thirty five four days. That stuff matters that much when it comes to the greatest athlete ever where it does matter to everyone is this. How quickly you recover from these nagging tweaks sprains and polls so I if the Lakers lose go from four losses and rose six losses in a row? You deal with it if it means you get the healthy Lebron that you had the first twenty five games of the year because when this was twenty four and three and Lebron was the top three MVP candidate no one was doubting how good they could be. It's since he suffered the rib injury and now the groin join injury that the jackals out waiting for the moment. They've been waiting on all year. It's not a shock to the Lakers. Losing streak coincides with. Lebron getting. dinged up do you think because again the reports have been that he might sit out one half of a back the upcoming back to back. Do you like that or would you say sit him. I yes I would I would say you can have the you have the next two games off. Because he has the rib integral I would tell them. You can sit both games in the back toback. Look I loved that Lebron on an ad are respecting the regular season. I loved it. They're playing especially a D.. Because ought plan through all these little nagging injuries shows the impact. Lebron James Names on it because I'm convinced if was in New Orleans he would have been sitting out plenty of these days with these little injuries that he's always set out so I I respect that I love it. You WanNa played seventy eight eighty two whatever it is but be smart. WH somebody in that Lakers organization as you said Rob Pelinka Frank Vogel Lionel Hollins Jason Kidd. Heck Maverick Carter a rich Paul. Sit Down with Lebron and say look. This season is about you winning the championship. And I don't even think he should catch flack if he sits. I'll say the next two or three games from the people that's all you were talking about low management that's not lower management. That is you are injured. And you WANNA get fully hell. But you know. He will whether he's should or not he will care about it. Of course people think is not an injury. But here's here's the thing he look the last three games lebrons not been good. His numbers have been great. which is a testament to how good he is but still? He has not been himself against Indiana against Milwaukee or just the clippers that Lebron James is not going to get the Lakers if the bronze plan like that they won't beat the clippers. They won't win the championship or a healthy. We saw last year he came back. What now in hindsight appears to be early and he wasn't the same they were losing to Memphis Atlanta Atlanta? Lebron needs to get healthy. He should need somebody to tell him but if he does then he's got a lane and you saw again even the most ardent Lebron James Doubter. If you've watched them throughout the year he's been a different player since midway through the Indiana game just flat. Yep Yep and yesterday took twelve threes miss the most threes ever missing gaming career was reliably because he didn't have the burst to get to the basket. Ask It wasn't it wasn't the RIB injury. Was the groin injury. And so the the e Lebron's the only athlete I've ever seen that we that everyone immediately discounts no matter what the past performance is not from five years ago but from three weeks ago when it was like my God he's the League. MVP and now to see you know the shooting thirty nine percent from the field in the last three games. There's a reason it's because he's dinged up and I agree with you percent. You and there is a difference between load managing a need condition tour. You miss a quarter of the Games and suffering an injury and missing zingy game or two after that. No one has argued. I haven't seen anyone and I might have been the hardest person anybody on the load management stuff. That guy should have to play through through injuries. Nobody is arguing that it's how much maintenance you should do to prevent injuries during the season that creates the plot is decked Prescott because he's gone out there and he's a good leader for playing through his injuries to sixteen game season they're finished led by the way if this were to be clear if no but if they were if this were the playoffs. I don't think I would be saying he sits riots the playoffs.

"Ego goes signs caused damage cowboys. Tight ends very little. No I mean. That's that's fair. It was a very lethargic effort overall from the cowboys offense and it was like they didn't tell you realize that you know a playoff spot was on the line. I mean I don't know how else to put it. But that's not play. Michael Ben and Randall. COBB did and yeah the Philadelphia Eagles. I mean what you gotta give it to the Eagles. I mean they were less bad than the cowboys and sometimes that's all it takes them the NFL but Wow this was this was really bad. I promise I'm not crying. I promise it's just a cold but I saw star wars right and saw star wars tried tonight. That was good so so at least have gone from me. We'll see what happens. I mean again. This is going to be interesting week. I know you probably want to couch fire Jason Garrett that is not happening all right. There's no away the Jason Greer. It's going to get this week by the Dallas Cowboys. They're going to ride this out and at this point it's possible. There's only one game left in the Jason Garrett Air. It's possible there's only two games left. I mean you know who knows I mean I. I don't think it's impossible that the giants could beat the eagles. I mean we saw the giants kind of push the limit a few weeks ago that it was in Philadelphia for what it's worth this New York. Daniel Jones was kind of on fire on Sunday. So maybe Daniel Jones could do the same thing against these eagles but I mean it's you know this thing is going to end. It's just not gonNA end this week. I mean that's you gotta accept that if if you're hoping for the cowboys divide Jerry Jerry Jones. You gotta find something else to hope for because that is just simply not going to happen But other than that I mean you know five of the six playoff spots from the. NFC are locked up We're talking Sunday night at tournament. According to this and this is dropping episode for Monday So far only the NFC south has been Juan on the NFC. West will come down to the seahawks and the forty niners that Sunday night football next week by the way both. NFC East Games. Eagles giants and cowboys Redskins did get flexed just to the afternoon hours so the cowboys will not know what's going on when their game kicks off so they'll have to play it added to be watching the jumbotron and hoping they get some help from the giants but other than that The Vikings already wildcard team or an. NFC North winner. If things go their way on Monday night football we'll see and of course the loser of the NFC West is going to be the other wildcard. But Hey man. I what I said you know. Football's awesome and I love it and don't worry if you are worried we're not going anywhere when the season ends you start to get the Ocho you're still gonNA get tons ends of continent blogger. The Boys Dot Com obviously. It's very probable that we'll have a head coaching search and in a weird way. That's going to be fun. I mean you know. We haven't had a cowboys head coaching search in the twitter era. I mean think about that. You know we haven't really had one in the era of social media so I think it'll be a lot of fun to experience in certain ways so hopefully you enjoy mixture subscribe by by the way to the blog on the boys..

"There's not that moment that you can point to Brett Maher miss because that was asked but there are moments that because the field goals and you missed games were different and it was that easy. And it's those are the situations that is a microcosm awesome for sort of the overall disposition. The overflow with the cowboys is that there are seemingly you know issues and problems and mistakes that are easily correctable like by going out and trying other kickers and moving on etc and they do not do it for whatever reason you know. We tweeted from the handle after this game and everybody was really upset. Said really pissed off if you had to describe This cowboys era the era of Jason Garrett in one word what would that word be we got a lot of average mediocre et Cetera. There were a a few people who responded and I really liked this answer with the word arrogant. I absolutely believe the Dallas cowboys are arrogant because they have tried to force their own mindset their own beliefs and they've tried to force that issue in moments that just don't make sense. I mean look to one of the worst losses of this era in two thousand seventeen in Atlanta the CHAZ screen game. They forced the Chaz Greenish. They said Chas. You GotTa Be Tarrant Smith you just you gotta do it next man up next man up. That was arrogance and it bit them in the butt and it has bit them in the bud so much this season because they've tried to force their style of play the way they wanted to do football the way they're going to run the ball where they're gonna Tak they're gonNA play defense their style etcetera. You GotTa beat your man Dan. You know whatever that's not. That's not even coaching. That's just planning and hoping I mean there's no adapting. There's no responding. There's no anything because of it. They've lost eight games. This was not a team that was supposed to lose eight games yet. Here we are now with the Dallas cowboys needing help and I think we all agree you know that this era and right I mean I think it's it's beyond obvious that you know even if the cowboys do get the help they need from the New York giants and then ultimately you you know go on and beat the redskins and maybe get into the playoffs or whatever and I mean. We knew we knew before this eagles game we knew that Jason Gray was not going to be the head coach of this team in twenty twenty twenty. But this somehow this was still a new low I tweeted this as well after the game and wrote about this. Think about all the players players are all the players the Jason Garrett has either coached the majority of their career or all of their career and these are just some of the top names. Okay Tony Romo Not Marcus. Where Dez Bryant? Sean Lee Tyran Smith Dan Bailey. Travis Frederick Zack Martin demarcus Lawrence Zeke Elliott Dak Prescott. I mean you could throw in you know all all kinds of dudes to you could throw in a little bit of you know Greg Ellis. Although he wasn't head coach that you could throw Anthony Spencer if you really wanted to. Terence Newman certainly brandon car. I mean you can go on and on and on and on. There's a lot of great players that Jason his either again coached all of their careers as members of the House Commerce also for Africa out to mention Jason or some of or a majority of those. And what do they have to show for. I mean we're on the verge here and say on Virgil this effectively certain but you get my point. I mean I don't WanNA speak uncertainties until at certain we are on the verge of Dallas cowboys not appearing in an NFC championship game this decade. I know you've seen buzzfeed Nashville to do all the you you know. Top songs and top music videos and movies and TV shows the decade. I mean there's all sorts of going on with two thousand nine hundred ending. Think about that. This whole decade was Jason Gary. Okay okay except for two thousand and ten. Although that was half Jason Greer but you get my point this whole decade was Jason Garrett and what are the cowboys have to show for in fact this will be the second straight and I'm using the word here the second straight decade that the Dallas cowboys have gone without reaching even just reaching the NFC championship game. It's absurd that the the franchise I guess you and I are talking. Currently is still technically possible. But the franchise has never gone to straight decades without making the NFC championship game. And they're about to do it and you know it wasn't for lack of talent. It wasn't for lack of opportunity. You know I mean. It wasn't for lack of luck I mean think about you know I talked about this respect them but in two thousand seventeen cowboys had a playoff field that was void of Carson Wentz. That was void of Aaron Rodgers. That was void of Odell Beckham Junior when he was still in the New York giants signs that think about the the twenty seven s championship game. And I know that Nicole's Eagles on the super bowl but the two thousand seventeen. NFC Championship game. Was Nick. Foles in case keenum I mean and that was a year that was that was a year to be there. And it's all just been y'all squandered away I mean squandered trying chasing their tail It's unfortunate it kind of Things rolled for the cowboys. You know Late Sunday evening during Sunday night football it was reported by many people that the cowboys plane had issues leaving Philadelphia. which is just I mean sets up for all the jokes? I mean it's just it is what it is INS are bad. Things are really really really bad. Had for the cowboys. But let's stay talking about how bad they either. We're going to get through this together and I know I'm sick. So let's take.

"The higher I've been thinking about it on the back burner season season but I'm not sure yet. There's not like one guy while nights. Aw Man I hope they don't hire that one guy rather than I guess that will but yeah so I don't know well. It's kind of interesting that we've done. Who Do you want to ask you who do you you know I? The Urban Meyer idea of he goes in he gets his title he gets out. That is appealing a college. Coach in general is so scary scary just because the cowboys are in such a place where they have so many guys. They needed a contract for their quarterback from our Cooper for You Know Byron Jones. I just want to bring him around. I mean you know so I i. Just that is nerve wracking. To consider their their nucleus is so young so precarious that. I don't know that you WanNa just bring in any they do to Give that over to. That's why like Matt rule makes a lot of sense because he's this guy who's who can ask success on the fields this great leader obviously what he's done at Baylor Taylor is very impressive. And it's worth noting that when asked about Lincoln Riley Jerry's specifically brought up Matt Rule And so I think Matt Rule is interesting. Urban would would be fun. It'd be fun as Hell and you know so I'd I'd be excited for that just You know kind of ride the ride I think. At this point the Lincoln Riley things kind of played out. I mean I mean if it happened to be cool but it just. It's been talked about so much that it's lost all appealed to me. I mean other than that like an there have been people to talk about the idea of Jason Witten. Being the head coach. That would be an utter. So as long as it's something not like that I think we'll be okay but it's also worth mentioning. A Peterson Chris Peterson you know. The the stepped away from Washington which is worth noting he was Kellen. Moore guy a boise and if the cowboys want to retain Kellen Moore and kind of want to go that whole route. That make sense that I'd be excited about that but at this point Especially considering that you just you said you don't want it to happen. I'm probably Matt Rollover anybody else. That's fair enough. I feel like urban would be a great villain for you'll sense putting him down down in Dallas It'll be interesting because again giants head coach. Washington get avenue head coach in them. I would probably yes. You guys will too. So they'll be they'll be ille- Doug Peterson suddenly gained the individual. Yeah well that's what when Doug was hired I believe that was like Oh of now Jason Garrett is the longest tenured guy in the NFC Censo- The baton will be passed and then next season obviously when Doug Peterson fired after going on. You know we'll be talking about. That's something else but It's crazy that you know we do so much work to get to this point where you know Sunday night. It's everything shifts honored eighty degrees. You know what I mean. Unlike if the Eagles lose I mean you know I know you guys are going to have draft coverage up on Monday which is pretty nuts. But it's been a fun race Brandon. It's always fun against you guys and I wish you all bleeding grew nation happy holidays. Merry Christmas and As as much success as you can have without winning a game for the Eagles and Some good times. He's on twitter at Brandon Garden. But I promise you say some stuff office you off.

"Twenty first two thousand and nineteen. It is officially the day before tomorrow. The Dallas cowboys will be taking on the Philadelphia Eagles if they win the NFC East is there.

It's GonNa be nauseating it's going to be a whole lot of things and to get the other perspective involved.

"I don't think they're going to get blown out and I don't think they're going to win a close game so I'm going to pick them to win. Osei thirty four thirteen. I think that they just Dhamma Dhamma orderly for the first matchup right. Because I agree with you and I talked about it then but it's all about that. Start all right so I think if they get off to even if it's seven zero lead by like ten nothing fourteen. Nothing like they did the first game. I think it's a rap. I think that they bury the eagles. And then I've been at that point. Just try to capitalize all the mistakes because they will come. I mean so I think that again. I don't see them winning a close game. I don't know that they have that in them right now. So if if it's close I think they lose that game but I don't think they'll get blown out so I think that they just kind of their go to Philadelphia. They have some fun. They get their as win of the year ear. They get their hats and t shirts and then everybody has a good Christmas. And you know then we figure out what's going to happen against Washington next week when that'd be fun. Yeah no colon your sock. Okay Okay Yeah Yeah Yeah well yeah same thing you know they used to. They used to put out star. They hung socks up. You've we've seen a Christmas Carol right on Christmas Carol but I mean there's a lot of you know by the way I mean. We need to talk about this next week as well. We won't be we will be on. Yes yeah five Christmas movies of all time. It'd be something to get into but my point is is that you don't WanNa have any A in this game. I mean I think we talked about earlier. You won't be able to just go ahead and finish it now and not prolong it. So that is also the motivation ovation game. I agree and I agree with the notion of talking about top five Christmas movies O.. X. Week that will be more fun conversation if if the cowboys are. NFC East champions. If they're not that will be terrible conversation. But I'll tell you right now. I WANNA shock you on a Monday. I've actually never seen miracle on thirty fourth I. I don't know how that's happened to me in my life man you've been deprived from Matsieng. Thirty four thirty four thirty four straight. And you you're missing out. It's an older movie but yeah it's got a lot of it's got a it's got a great message so I I definitely recommend it. It's not my top five. I'm just gonNa tell you teach that but nevertheless it's a great movie. Well we can get into that and I will be watching star wars so Hopefully jet was wrong. I mean I'm just crossing my fingers that he was but the next week how good it was following on twitter. And we'll see what you reviews are but don't don't spoil it for everyone else it's going to now of course not so well everybody enjoy the weekend. Hopefully the cowboys doing and get a hat and t shirt. We will be back Monday as Tony said. This was seven five. Oh Yeah Yeah.

Is Homefield Advantage Dead?
"WANNA start here eight and I think this allows us to get in week fifteen you mailed me some stats last week And now we saw again today. Road teams were nine and six against the spread. The road teams won all nine of those games outright for the season road teams against the spread. One twenty five ninety three three and five there thirty two games over five hundred while home favorites Through fifteen weeks or fifty seven eighty one in five twenty four games. That's amazing right there. And we have had over and over again these double digit losses. We just had it today again with San Francisco cousin. Sal I ask you this homefield advantage dead. It might be there might be. I think you said you said it in basketball you were saying was dead. It's funny yesterday on text exchange. But yeah if you're looking through your pools and you have to pick sixteen games a week if there are no bison. You're going six and ten every week it's because you're taking home favorites. I know I know it's hard hard. I know when the better team is laying six at home. It's hard to not circle the left side but stay away. It's very bizarre an extremely bizarre week. The raiders was ending that Falcons ending the Vikings first half cost people money the way that ended obviously the Redskins Eagles. That might have been the worst ending if you had if you had the redskins the plus points Or if you're going against Cooper cop in your honesty semi funky you hold. That thought we were talking about that. I think what's interesting to me. I I remember I wrote about this at the end of last decade ironic. I think Oh eight zero nine I wrote about this trend with with the NFL where it didn't see my homefield matter the way it did and then we had settled into this eight nine year run. We're homefield still mattered. But not like a date when we were growing up where it was like. If you went into somebody else's house also really hard to win and then you get to this year and I think we're seeing it with basketball to serves texting boat this weekend. I think there's three reasons I think the first reason is the secondary market. And the fact that you just don't have stadiums anymore words just completely fans for the home team yet so it it always seems to be more splintered than it used to be. The tickets have gotten way more expensive so I think that's that's Priced out some of the crazies. You know like some of the friends wrens. You had grown up some of the friends that I had back in Boston. It's just harder for them to for tickets and then I think the third thing. There's been so much talk about civility ability at games and you know fan behaviors. Just been a huge spotlight on how people behave and what they're allowed to do and yell. Oh and all that stuff and the crowds just seem Tamer and we saw today with the raiders. Blew a game late to Jacksonville Euro and this was the last I Oklahoma Game. It was on those on that. They're not gonNA lose their last home game and frigging g Menchu when right down the field out and then we saw it again today with Buffalo. It's like Ow Josh. Challenge when push comes to Shove Jiaxuan is not GonNa be able to get points in Pittsburgh. The crowd will take him out of it their defense no Josh Allen right down and scored. I don't know who has the great home field advantage anymore. So we'll Josh Allen didn't have a great game no thirteen completions. That was just an. I'm sorry I Pittsburgh Burke might still make the playoffs and I pray that they do because I have. They're the only team I could see betting against in that first round like I have a feeling on any other first round match unless Pittsburgh goes to Kansas City. I mean they've they've got in the last five games in which the supposedly hot they scored fifteen points a game. It's just Mike. Tomlin did as much much as he could. He can't do what you can do for this offense. You can't fake punt from his own twenty eight every week. I'm sorry but I think you're right. I think it's all the things you said. I also I think. Road teams coaches management has figured out the exact amount of time a team should spend in the opposing city. You know it's easier to travel now all that kind of stuff so there's not that much The jet lag isn't as big a concern. But you're right. We used to see division winners at seven and one eight eight. No now aside unless you like the packers this cowboys eagles four and three Kansas City foreign three at home like even the really good teams. You know Houston only five and two at home. Buffalo's GonNa make the playoffs only four and three at home i. I don't know what the reason is but trust us. These home teams are not. They're not better than they were five ten years ago. Yeah and I think that Tennessee Games are good example right. Yep didn't really seem like it mattered. Where that game was played and I don't think it's GonNa Matter Week? Seventeen either right now. The crowd was was good. They were into it but it wasn't like wasn't like the Shawn Watson was going to be affected by the crowd. We left out another reason that I think matters maybe Charles back to our childhoods. But you know the headsets the head facing the helmets and the and the QB being able to hear the offensive coordinator being able to move faster and the the even somebody like trubisky you know they were in that game that I know the packers won by eight. And if he didn't see the game you just assume The packers they were up double digit second half but the bears were lingering in that game and there were a couple of moments era when it seemed like they had a chance maybe to force overtime and I didn't think h Bisky who I don't think is good then look scared but he. He certainly wasn't rattled by playing in Lambo. So I stopped when when you know the we've been doing million dollar pegs you and I have been. We've been betting all season. I've really stopped looking at home field. They're very very few times. Do I say to myself. Oh my God that teams home. I really really love having the home team here even even tonight I bet on Buffalo. Hello at Pittsburgh. And as you said Josh Allen wasn't great but they were still able to move the ball and they needed to and their defense certainly traveled. It didn't seem to matter to them where they were playing. And I just think we throw homefield out. I don't know where it really matters anymore. Well if we go into the playoffs saying I just can't see so and so winning at ax EXC. There's not that many of those anymore right right. Then probably win their game at home and you know the niners or or or award seahawks over wax or they'll have a by but you know those some of those row teams near Green Bay will probably win at home but you can't say unless it's dot co dot com is going to Kansas City. I can't really say Buffalo. There's no way they're winning in Houston right or anything like that especially when you get to the one to three seeds when they match up so do you think is Seattle place that you feel like homefield battered team in the playoffs That's probably top three but not as much Chisato did eight years ago when Tony Romo had to go there or something like that. I don't think it's slow because think about what are they foreign to Yeah about about their last couple of games whether seven and one on the road I mean it is scary arose team right there. Last couple of games Minnesota went in there and put thirty autumn atom. Yep and then the game before that James Put thirty four on them in that game went to overtime I don't know I I wanted to start. The season isn't yeah. It's not the

three when drew brees got hurt set up Cobb is GonNa be seven Oh at the by they're going to be seven opposite didn't happen there four and three I want to get you Thoughts on their next five games that includes the game on the road a New England and we will be there I know that some of you are going to be there if you're going to be there we're going to get into New England in the Boston area so I know we're going to fenway we've got some cool stuff plan so we'll definitely be around we can grab some brews and chill if you're going to be there if you have any Boston conditions certainly let us know anyway I want to look at the next five weeks I view through the packers of the cowboys nemesis but the reality is the first step is winning the division and that's the win against the Eagles was so important so next five weeks I want you to tell me winner loss capital I'm talking next five games so I was going to buy this their next game is on the road at the site of their last loss metlife stadium against the New York giants that's on Monday night football I'm sure tests and boog awesome cute comments for Jason Witten I hope Jason Win scores for those reasons but winterless I think that's a win you know I think cowboys are effective enough to go in there and take care of the giants no problem I don't see any problem there put some five and three I agree especially with the by Jason Great it's going to get to work we'll see if he's at the world series again this year he was there last year sat next Brad Paisley Incredible eighteen in game I will never forget I was doing a high school game that night I remember and I said we wrapped up because it was the top of the ninth and Jason Oh my gosh call but okay so that would put them at five and three after that at home against the Minnesota Vikings back on Sunday night football the game I don't WanNa WanNa be fluff on it but it does it does depend on which vikings team shows up and Kurkin Primetime as messed there's a lot of you know loose variables flying around I think that you know the Vikings are the plane really strong right now I think it's going to be a good litmus test for Dallas is on there said I do think Dallas will pull it out that's a great offense you're right I mean this was a great defensive showing for the Eagles we'll see if they can do that against carp okay that puts them at six and three then there at Detroit I think they drop one of those games and just because I said this before the season started football's weird you know like the football news of football is going to show up at one point and the Games that I said that that could happen with this was way back and I'm not trying to be I called it the way it did the world series but I said the jets and said the lions and the deadlines game just feels kind of weird to me I I don't know I just I feel that could be a game we're going to find out that Matt Stafford I went to Highland Park in case you didn't know that over the last what isn't that ten years died Hirsch exactly I just that one I'm willing to you know I I feel that although I don't like it but I do feel that I think the lines they lost against the packers last wasn't Monday night and reading the horrible loss and then they had another horrible loss yesterday with the Vikings so you know I mean they are there pretty solid in fact I took him on one of the spreads that we play but you know I'm really think they're sneaky good Stafford's on that when we play them you know I mean he I think that's a loss and I can see I can see the cowboys they just got this huge win Yeah and then you just go and you fall flat in Detroit yeah the three hundred you mentioned six hundred nine earlier I think you've ever seen eight mile I'm going to be on the road in New England then four days later at home against Buffalo on Thanksgiving I think they split those so I think they emerged from this five game streak at seven and five ultimately means but that's a game that the cowboys haven't won that game in a while you know what I mean like the last game like that to me ballpoint I think you know here's where I think if they lose to New England I think that they might even drop Buffalo stating laws but I think that if they win in New England which I think they will then I think a they managed to maintain their their composure and then come home and win.

"On that safety blitz and Carson and that was the Orlando scavenger play like the schedules to Ryan man pretty sweet and do you know again he didn't specifically but it kind of spooked us kind of rattled US whatever or however you WanNa take that and it happened at a point we still have a lot of time that we can do something about it and you mentioned how kind of bought their own they did kind of say that dad kind of said that how maybe they sort of bought into what people were saying about them but like looking Sean happens to be one of the most intimidating venues at the NFL offers and then you lose to I mean I don't think that he's coach of the year but I think you know Matt Leffler is in the running you know the packers he lost one game and it was to the team the cowboys just throttled I mean so you know yeah two of your three losses are two teams that are some of the best in the NFL suppose whatever the case may be but I would rather beat the eagles and they did that yeah no absolutely I mean you know and I I do believe that there's some factor eighty two trying to see an assess what what your future holds for you and so so yeah I mean I think tyron lyle and those boys throughout the rest of this game but before we do we're GonNa take a very quick break to hear a word from our sponsors okay tell the truth when you're watching lives think every moment can be as exciting as Pat Mahomes deep pass or fourth quarter tie now it is sideline you'd get to predict what will happen next and make money doing it Ceylon is the game about the game it's not all insider daily fantasy sports arts and it's not complicated like live property Ceylon is fun and super easy to play just joined the.

"It's kind of similar situation to the chiefs like they're just an amounting amount of injuries so how do you really assess what's going on with them it's week seven I mean we we forget this umbrella Chaco say the does their division so it's it's not it's not a walkaway situation and and the NFC is completely staff so while it isn't you know there's still a lot of season left there is more of it season but things are really going to heat up so there's there's a stress level in this thing already finally the jets avance was rejuvenated last week and Sam darnold return to the team they finally got their first win of the season and darnold thanks skies for the jets when everyone is happy right now we're just missing Chris Wants all the guys are back together I think you know we're on softballs and often so we can be just up to us how how much we execute yeah well we go out there and play so it's really up to us you know how many points we score I think I think we're capable of scoring so many points and with our offensive line to the way they played I game with the way we've been running the ball and the way they've been protecting I think Scotland I I you know I love Sam Darnold I wish he would have waited a week to say this because I think he's going to really struggle against New England you can only beat New England now you only beat them one way with this defense you gotTa have guys on the outside who can beat them down the field because and the jets do not have those receivers so Sam's GonNa Struggle Against New England and I say this it's a nine and a half point spread I'll tell you now it's not in my blazing five I if the jets are after the New England game things will start to pick up but let me tell you this offense will have real limitations you're going to see them this week because New England corners are going to shut down the jets average receivers and New England is going to put massive pressure on salmon England is all all different defense than Dallas so you think that oh I think it's fair I think the Line Listen Vegas doesn't make many mistakes that line comes out at ten everybody's like Oh you got to take the jets took Patriot corners are going to shut down the jets receivers and it Air GonNa put so much heat on Sam this is one of these as high as the jet Fan is this morning as as low as they'll be after Monday night I think they're going to beat the Patriots will of course they do the pro athletes and I don't blame no not not the jets I'm saying Jets fans of course of course the jets is an nobody's routing for darnold and the jets more than me in America I love the Kit and I really I go check their draft board every fifteen minutes I this is going to be a rough money ah for them the the Patriot matchup is a bad one for the jets offense battle line no goto receiver they'll be totally shut down I still think it's a little but it it is fun it's GonNa be a good watch because now we're going to see SAM darnold against Tom Brady at home so well that's the news thanks for stopping by heard lie you know I get him on about twice a year I love having the former New York giant not only did he write a New York times bestselling book but he's a writer and a giant jagged his name is Rashad Jennings and let's bring him on the show today and it's actually timely today in a weird sort of way Rashad great to see you again dancing with the stars champion which frankly is more impressive than anything you've ever done I wrote a book to dancing that's over my head you played Patrick Mahomes injury last night you actually had an MC L. was at a tear and you did you play with it yeah I was out I was out for several weeks then I came back and I I play with how did you play with it it's not easy there's a Lotta tort because you only it's it's harder to actually make defenders miss because you have to run in a straight line okay so let's talk about that your running back part of running back making guys Miss Patrick does not have to make guys miss he can go down taught do you think a quarterback with MC L. Sprain or tear. It would be doable if you had some protection if you ask them protection yeah I believe oh and then sue because of the rules are predicated to protect the quarterback and to be quite frankly I think if a quarterback is coming off an injury believe it or not I think the rees will be more kind to that position in that particular player that's interesting to protect them so you got that on that on his favor an end also because of what he's asked to do he's an exceptional talent I think he can play without having to scramble as much he has such a wicked arm he does he really does obviously it's overlooked because of how impressive is in comparison with his feet but he can throw the ball from the pocket as well you know the other thing Frank Reich has this talent so too Peyton anti reads a great play designer and he's going to go into games now with Patrick perhaps thinking I need to design stuff so we get the ball out quicker we're not going to do the track the track meet post route as much so I think to your case the referee here's the thing I said and and I think it would be hard to keep Patrick mahomes out because punters kickers and quarterbacks can't hit him in practice there is as I've talked to quarterback Trent dilfer used to say this I want to prove to the guys I can take a hit to there is a certain sensibility we all know running backs get hit and we all know linebackers are tough right quarterbacks were the Red Jersey a practice they play hurt they listen guys I can play hurt too and I think it would it be hard to keep Patrick off the field he'll wanNA he'll argue with anti vern our absolutely he's GonNa come back he's he wants to play back yet no you're right and so it was hard to determine when he should come back they do have a bye week in what like three definitely not a situation I the way he walked off the field at least from what we know so far where you're thinking about hanging it up for the season elemental does it matter let me ask you this when you got hurt does it matter like in Kansas City if you think we're a super bowl contender is that go into your head when you go to bed at night like this I'm hurt concussion still I I got a headache I've seen players that have injuries say I'm not injured at all go home crowd limp get an oxygen chambers do what they needed all almost every other sport there's a game tomorrow there is a badge Ivana in the NFL is part of the contract which is we're going to ask you so weeks to play a little hurt the question is how little is little concussions you're not plan there's a protocol for that so I think it comes back I'm Gonna I'm GonNa take a break come back they got a bunch of questions I want to ask you about your New York giants everybody loves Eli but I think Daniel Jones has been way better I don't think the giants are done I think they got a lot left in this season back with Rashad Jennings the former New York giant after this be sure to catch live editions of.

"He's been an amazing story. And I wish nothing but the best form, I just hope you know, he'd I just hope he doesn't cost the eagles like in a in a real bad way at the game or anything like that. But other than that, I hope he Opie balls out for a decade. That's, that's pretty mature. I respect that people respect that and Valen is one of those guys. I mean who who roots against that, dude? So, yeah, I think for me Brian Westbrook. I mean like just horrible. Get me wrong. But I mean he was so fun. I'm in just everything. About Brian Westbrook. I feel like he came on a little early to get like the Alvin Kamara type of I feel like people still didn't really appreciate him. Brian Westbrook was phenomenal. I'm in, you know now loved everything about his game. And Bill tech made it pretty clear in his game plan against the eagles that he also loved Brian Westbrook, where you can really tell who the good ones are because Bill tech schemes around when he goes up to Chad. Johnson says, hey we're doubling you today, all day, you know, that's kind of feeling that you got when the when the patriots played the eagles in the Super Bowl that he was gonna take Westbrook away because he was just that's special now late round pick two men. Great story and a great. Do I've actually gotten a chance to speak with Ryan myself and he very shell so very very goal dude. So finally kissed do you consider the Cowboys eagles, top rival top team to get revenge on the spread of this week? Yeah, I don't know if the rival is as heated as it used to be used to be, and I think it was kind of saved by the fact that both of them drafted quarterbacks in the same year that are their starters now and have seen some success. So that's kinda help things and you know again with the Redskins falling off and the giants to who knows what they're doing right now. They're going to walk into the desert. But yeah, I would say that the Cowboys are definitely like the team that you use. Circle that week you look forward to that game you put a lot of prepping toback game. And that's like a big focus. Everybody's. I can't see anybody else that the eagles would go up against that would be as exciting as the Cowboys. So when away I'm almost thankful for the Cowboys existence. However, I did say so you don't think it was Lucas Easterling quit that's out there. If you re race one moment from or what would it be? And it my answer was in fact, the Cowboys. So there's that do. No, I agree. I mean, I think that the eagles are surly the Cowboys top rival as now you know, there's certainly a lot more history with the giants and Redskins. But it it they are different weeks when those roll around and that's why the the last game the March tip. I mean, the way that ended was was just so sweet, you know, but, but I agree with you. There really. It's been awhile since there was contentiousness. I feel like the last, you know, like beef sort of game was the two thousand fourteen second game after thanksgiving the Dez three touchdown name because before that game him intense Williams were getting into with. I think it was Nolan terro at the time. And that was the last time I felt, you know, like like this game could kind of go to blows ever since then it's been big. But it hasn't been like that. And that helps the, the Cowboys take the division if I'm not mistaken, right? Because the eagles had had control of it at that point was was December..

"And that is blog with a capital B, and we'll get to that in a second. And I know it didn't have an episode on Thursday. It was a very unique day. All I have to say about that. But it is Friday, and we have a special guest joining us, Michael kissed of bleeding green nation and BGN radio kissed is a producer for BGN radio. And he does such a fantastic job with everything. They bleeding relation puts together in terms of how they handle their podcast and everything. He's one half of the Kristen Solex show. They do so many different shows and great things. It'd be Jan radio and he's a really smart guy. And so he joined us this past week has been revenge week across espionage in. And so wanted to have him on talk some Cowboys eagles, and kind of kick that can around and sort of just figure out his assessment of the two thousand nine hundred nine eagles and kind of some historical Cowboys eagles, rivalry questions. A good chat. Some fun times that I think you'll appreciate we'll get to that in a second. I should note. In fact, I'm going to note that we recorded this kissed and I before the big contract extension happened kissed an I spoke on Wednesday and obviously, the Philadelphia Eagles agreed to a four year. One hundred twenty eight million dollar contract extension with Carson Wentz on Thursday. So when you don't hear us make reference to that. That's why. And that's a big deal. That's a very big deal for that Prescott obviously. Because when you're the next guy to get paid, you want more than the last guy to get paid and Carson Wentz is extension is right up there at thirty two million dollars annually. Which makes you figure that Dak Prescott is gonna make thirty two thirty three million dollars per year. Whenever he does sign his extension. Now, when is that going to be when, is that going to happen, when his dad going to get his long term contracts? Unlike Carson Wentz Dacca's entering the final year of his rookie deal. So there is a little bit more pressure on the Cowboys to get that deal done. Then there was. Even on the eagles to lockdown wince. If you thought that it might be soon, it's hard to tell. I mean, you, you never know when the world and negotiations obviously. You know, we've lived this life fairly recently when it comes to DeMarcus Lawrence, who, by the way, DeMarcus Lawrence had the best tweet when it came to to Carson Wentz and, and getting paid and everything because DeMarcus, Lawrence speaks his mind. I mean, I think we all know that certainly if you follow DeMarcus Lawrence, you know how you can be and he tweeted the richer. They get the better it feels when we humbled their ass. So good for barcus Lawrence. Not holding back lane Johnson. Philadelphia Eagles, right? Tackle did have a tweet of sorts saying he's looking forward to the matchup. First time the Cobb is an eagles will meet is Tober twentieth. Two thousand nineteen so that will be very fun. That's my thirtieth birthday, by the way. So getting kinda scared personally. But. Microphone, low of NFL network reported on Friday that the Cowboys and Dak Prescott are not close. That was the verbiage that girl follow used. He said it could be into training camp. Everything that I have been told by sources briefed on the talks is that both sides are really far apart at this point. It sounds like they're going to put a pin in it at this point. And then revisit. So according to Mike VERA, follow the cow was in dock Prescott not close at the moment you have to imagine that. I mean whoever was closer to Carson Wentz his value. Whether it was the Cowboys are Prescott unless Dacca's asking for something ridiculous, like thirty five or whatever million dollars per year..
DeMarcus Cousins of Golden State Warriors to start upon return, Steve Kerr says
"Defending champion. Golden State Warriors looked very champagne like last night. They dominated the Knicks won twenty two ninety five. Thanks in large part to Klay Thompson, forty three points, including seven three pointers. But wait, there's more Steve Kerr announced that DeMarcus cousins could be back soon reports are as soon as next Friday against the clippers. So all in all a good night for
Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears quick thoughts
"Next up lions bears. It ain't Trubisky. Chicago's defense is number one in the NFC. Okay. Number four in the NFL. They're number one in turnover differential. Listen, it's a little like Dak wins last night and everybody freaks out. They had the running game and the defense, and they had the lead bottom line in Chicago. Matt Nagy is the less well-known version of the ram Sean McVay McVeigh's got stars offensively left tackle running back quarterback receiver. What the bears are doing right now with Mitch Trubisky to me, it's the story of the year. I talked to people inside the NFL year ago that thought maybe the kid was a bust Trubisky. This year twenty two DS seven picks and a quarterback rating over one on one. I don't think it's him though. Next up bills jets. Bowls fired yet. The jets have lost four straight Sam darnold left. It wasn't Sam darnold. Josh mccown came in and he was awful quarterback rating thirty nine listen, the parking lot got empty by halftime the team quit. You gotta remember Buffalo's fourth quarterback this year. Matt Barkley came in and dropped a forty burger on them. This was about effort again, I feel bad for Todd Bowles and Steve Wilton Arizona, but these young defensive coordinators feel like flip phones and twenty eighteen they and the GM should go with Bev. No offensive players left tackle need, a new one, right? Tackle need a new one center. Average running backs below average tight end. Good should be third tight end wide. Receivers a bunch of dudes just guys. Next up falcons Browns. Woke up dangerous. Listen, it was a perfect setting for a rookie quarterback played with the lead against the bad defense. The running game was humming for Cleveland and Baker Mayfield. Who's got a lot of swagger only. Add to throw the ball twenty times tied for the least in the NFL. Never forget when Big Ben came into the NFL. Remember that first year? Big bend didn't fill the football member. Philip rivers. I here in San Diego. Didn't tell the football. He attempts seventeen throws. This has how you manage a rookie quarterback Duke Johnson. And Nick chop are tremendously talented running backs. They got a lead that defense is the real deal. They had very few third downs. They didn't ask a ton. And they asked him to be accurate this play right now, you're watching was his best of the day. But after the game he was all fired up. When I woke up this morning. I was feeling pretty dangerous. He is good behind the mic. A next up cardinals chiefs. Lights camera action. Join I disagree on this too. I understand celebrating. I get it. The NFL wants free social media buzz. I totally get that. But at some point second quarter ask Andy Reid if he loved this. That's a fifteen yard penalty have to have rules mine. Knock on celebrating is ultimately it will become taunting or penalties. So how about a new rule? You can celebrate all you want inside the end zone. That's already a roll. Well, he got he got. Well, I mean, they're not going to the penalty for the lambo leap, but he got penalized because he used the prop.
