Two two days ago and Michael Irvin Colin has been big on this. Tom Brady to the Dallas cowboys. Thing right Tom Brady to the Dallas cowboys and I was like I just. I don't really I don't really see it. Well if you listen Michael Irvin was the one who also said that That that that Tom Brady to the cowboys made sense. This is interesting hall of fame receiver. Michael Irvin created a stir by suggesting that Tom Brady could replace Dak Prescott. That was that was three days ago. Three now he's walking back. Those comments he started the whole thing saying some very significant people led them to believe there was a chance chance the patriots free agent could end up with his old team. Then he wanted to clarify. I'm going to clarify what I said. I am blown away by this Irvine told Clarence Hill to the fort worth star-telegram. I said what somebody said.

"Because I think that Baron Jones situation is a much more convoluted Thing to argue in my mind because I don't know and neither does anybody. Do we know want the defensive coaches think of Byron Jones. What what they think? His worth is Now it's definitely still probably in that same sentence that you would say like a Dak Jack Prescott or anything. It's like well. We're held a lot better with him than without him But I just don't know what they think I don't know what they're you know what we hear ear from Nolan. Tom Is that they want corners that attack the football that get their hands on the football. Well that's not really any of the corners other than Jordan Lewis Right Now so let me just let me just say something. What we're talking about about Byron Joe? I just have uh submitted posed by the time people were able to listen to this. I was looking at the cornerbacks and where the cowboys are right now. And what they would do to go out and acquire the other quarterbacks looking the free agent market people realize that I was using a thing uncalled. NFL trade rumors. Because there's all these different things that ranked the top one hundred wasted everything. They've got Bar Jones as the number eight free agent in Harriet. The highest quarterback by like about almost twenty spots is just Burgio. He is the cowboys fan. Base is is down on him. The rest of the League is now pay somebody. What else will cause? The reason people are down on him is because the lack of interceptions Lack of forced fumbles interceptions in two years. But I'm telling you right now now if you go into this season without buyer Jones in which is likely to happen then you're sitting there saying we might have to draft a corner in the first round like we we might not be able to just draft grant Delta to safety that we want we might have to go with Christian Fulton or somebody at corner because that might have more pressing need then what we have right now so I was looking at the draft possibilities to as it turns out. There's a lot of good corners around seventeen. There's another cluster around fifty one so there are options. I think the buyer Joan is. It's not clear cut. There's more than one way the cowboys could go. And you can kind of justify either direction. I think they're gonNA come up with some way. Like I said he may get franchise tag unless the new defensive staff doesn't want to go that direction but Liz wait and see what might no one was up to because I essay NOLASCO look at it and go like yeah we WANNA keep him. Yeah let's wait and see what we're going to take a quick break and then when we come back we're going to talk more cowboys headlines. When we write back on the bruise the the boys podcast we are back on the birth of the boys? podcast you can find me on twitter at Michael sides are at Mr Seismic Shore. Sorry there you you can find Tom at talk. Be We're a little under the weather guys so bear with us here but we're talking cowboys Couple of other little rumor and Innuendo of you will. Tom Is You know for first off on Monday Monday February tenth there was reported that Sean Lee have decided that he wants to play in twenty. Twenty funny He's just not sure where he will play so he probably will test free agency. I am of the theory that you know with a lot. There's a lot of names we're going to talk about here in just a second. Sean Lee is one that I think. Definitely the cowboys should. They should try to get back. Because I think a folks look at Shawn Lee's production and they start wanting to think of Sean Lee like he was when he was the starting will linebacker or the starting Mike linebacker and so they look at a little bit of a drop off and they think man this is just this is not the guy well stop judging him with those glasses. Those winds start putting on the lenses that you judge a third linebacker in the night. Thank thank you still are sitting there saying this is probably the best situation for the cowboys. Yeah I think that's really true He was loose the same and had pretty much his best season in wine. Awhile and he also will give you a little insurance in encase. Deresh has some other problems with his. Uh we are all worried about. 'cause nobody knows anything. Yeah so so that's gonNA shake out So if I would love to see them have LBJ. With Sean Roy up yeah I think Sean we offers you another. You know another bit of value is that he offers his ability to teach instincts to teach. These guys is what they what they need to be expecting out there. Some guys don't have the instincts that Sean Lee does so he teaches them. What he believes is going to happen and they go out and execute that so I think it's still an ability? He has a lot of guys. Don't and then just looking at it from just the the economics of it. He's not one of the top one hundred free agents that I can fire listed. He's not going to be that expensive. The want wanted back with physician as being valuable and so I think the chance that the cowboys could get him for a few million the For another year and when he is pay last year Tom not to have to like a fraction of what he was supposed to make last year. I think he made you know it was like incentives up to up towards a three and a half million or four million but he was set to cost like eight or nine against the CAP. So yeah I would you know. I think that they could get him for something fairly reasonable. Just because the guy the he's just he. He lives eats breeze football. And and you know I I feel sure what he does retire. He's going to go somewhere. Maybe in college or something My joint as an assistant with the couch. Why the coach but I just I think he would be a sore guide? Look at so smart. Yeah another guy that is talking about coming back from Willow New Year. That's Jason Wooden and I don't want to look Tom and I are not discouraging urging the good damn name Jason Witten. Okay this is Mister Cowboy. We understand what it means to this organization. But he doesn't what he he means to. The onfield product is not much okay and he doesn't have much to give you in that you know for a guy that played seventy five eighty percents Zenden snaps last year. That always need more playmaking ability at the tight end. They have Blake Darwin that they think they like. That they just you. No these new coaches coming in. They're going to look at it and see the lack of actual play time and production. You don't know what they're going to think about. Hr even though you know Dak Prescott is high on him. He she hasn't gotten a lot of experience. You have don't Schultz there. Who hasn't done much for the cowboys? Outside of blocking I'd written on blogging the boys about the tight end class in this draft draft which seemingly looks pretty good lots of pass catching tight ends. which is what I think the cowboys really should focus on of? What might McCarthy offense really looks worn a tight end is somebody that can stretch the field vertically? That's not something that Jason Witten does anymore Tom. He's he's just wrong. I think the wrong fit. There are some teams that could probably use him and he may wind up in a uniform. Another uniform somewhere else. I even throw it out out there but you know I wouldn't be surprised if if Jason Gear gave him a call now of course lying and and so you know it's that it happens it happens I just think they need to be looking at now. Seven draft picks. So they're going to have to probably On a tight end until three anyway but I still think you better off going with someone else. Seeing Louis. Darwin can do C- of Dalton Schultz can step up and do something else. Let's say like this time A good word for this. It's time to rip the band aid off the band aid off and start fresh like certain you tried it for one year and they you know you had some guys get injured get banged up Jeff. Swayne was getting banged up. But you've found jarring there and then Donald Schultz became a pretty good in line blocker. There are options in this year's draft later in the draft to because there they are better position towards the top that will be pushing him. There are options there options in the draft. There may be an option free agency for low low cost deals else but it's time to rip the band aid off and do we do. We even really know how my McCarthy's exactly so it may not be that big. Ah Issue you know. They may not need to go with A really great solid tight end. They might have they might just fill out the roster. Yeah and that that's entirely possible So it's it's just you know. I just don't think that that is something something that they're going to be really looking to pursue You know so. We'll just have to wait to see that. One and the land of the bizarro world. Well here Was Mr Dez Bryant former cowboy wide receiver talking about wanting. Just put him in the Jason Witten role and and I just told the Jason witten played like seventy five cents snaps. I don't think as Brian's ready for that I wish Dez Bryant the best of luck in. I wish him the best of luck with any football ball team. I think that Dez deserves to be in the NFL. But I just don't think Dez fits in with the cowboys as the fourth receiver. I just don't see what the point is a bringing Dez Bryant in unless you're just worried about a guy showing some passionate locker room. Yeah he might be able to fire some guys up but I'm not sure that that's all that was missing for the cowboys and You know the only way I think that they would want to take a look at it is if they don't yeah They might have a way to say. Well okay maybe as the third wide receiver maybe but then again an adverse the fact that the way Dez Bryant does everything with just one hundred and fifty percent alike you. He's just a passionate guy that doesn't really by with what Amari Cooper is a margin. The Amari Cooper is a route runner. He's technician he wants to get out there do his job come to the sideline wait for his number to be called again. I don't know if that kind of Type stuff especially from a guy that would be your fourth Third Receiver at best in your receiver. Most likely I don't know if that's exactly good for your football team or if it's something that these young guys aren't even going to pay attention to. Yeah so that's yeah. I just think that's a I don't think much is going to come of it You know more power to him for reaching out to Steven Jones and trying to see if there's something there but you know CEO radio. Tom Is probably dead. Stop Stop adding having us on twitter. Please stop having everywhere. pleats just give you just let us relax man so anyway So I do want to ask your opinion before we get out of here where we're going to do a a short show today but I want to ask your opinion. What did you if you got to see any of it? What did you think of the XFL? Because I thought it was surprisingly a lot better than most would expect you. I washed up a few highlights of it but To me your first off the NFL auto adopt their kickoff. Oh let me just say that they did. Yeah Yeah it's just everyone was raving about. How was it was watchable? Will it was transparent They actually go through the whole review process which I thought was why because it's not not for everybody sitting in the crowd but for everybody at home that's a really awesome. You know process because they only give them like thirty seconds to do it you album to A. I'm sorry Thom for interrupting but I saw them do it. Pass interference call where they were trying to determine if the safety you know lab within the crown of his helmet and could could be a different way. You know a unsportsmanlike penalty. And then they just review it for thirty seconds live right there. The referee of the officials. You could hear them reviewing at home. Tom And determined immediately he led with his shoulder. There's no reason to call you know that that that unsportsmanlike on top of the pass interference. So I thought it was pretty awesome. I I think it would be great if the XFL wild up shaking some of these fossilized out of the NFL and made them all. There are better ideas. Maybe we do need to be open minded. Maybe we need to be more forward thinking in Queens. Just because it's the way the game has changed industry to embracing that a little bit more the XFL except I mean these athletes are not nearly the NFL players that we're seeing but I don't think you saw a lot of You know for an opening.

"Ask you where to drum roll please. Did they drag Tom. Brady's but they're down genie in four playoff games. That's what what he did that's That's not innuendo that's fat. So what's going on with that. Tuck rule game. He was really good. He did fumble and it should should have been called in the dynasty shouldn't launched yet and he's still down but he was really. They had home field. They had home field so so in three playoff. The game he threw one touchdown so the deep is drug is put And then he dragged the whole team to victory in the Super Bowl. By completing fi I passes in the final drive to sit up in it. Are we going to discount that. Pick sixth title all started the game with a team that with every thirty five points. The game coach Bela deep with them to seventy. All I know is the Garoppolo. I watched Saturday. He looked like the weakest link to me. That's what Tom Brady. Remember identified in the I League playoff game. Kurt Warner was the MVP Marshall Faulk with rookie off. If the player of the year and told militate defense seventy with the greatest showalter in order to other guys Orlando Pace has already in the hall. So as Kurt Warner Sores Marshall. faulk Torry Holt Bruce on the ballot so back to Orange. I've known Warren Moon for a long time because I actually covered some of his games at the University of Washington where I was at the L. A. Times and I loved Warren Moon in college and I could not believe the. NFL Thumbed knows at Warren. Moon go to Canada to prove himself. And here's the Irony of Warren Moon. Defending Dak Jack Prescott. I have thought that the one player Dak reminds me. The most of in the hall of Fame Is That Guy Warren Moon. He is Warren Moon. esque that's the way he he play. He wrote a little better than war. Well maybe a little better but but the throws are there warned. Moonlight Throw Warrant Yankee warns. Yeah stop saying saying that he cannot. I went to listen. I'll play them a couple of problems at war. War Moon is the greatest deep ball. Anybody in the history of the gay. Chris Carter Article Pants from. There are a lot of guys that I think he would go. He was gone by the time. Randy got there. Let's give he can throw the ball. He's a beautiful. Throw the football and you could hear it. I mean you. He's been about this here coming out his hand just like beauty but that Prescott is the cowboys best option. Now hold on you just not here left we had a sale paying glazing you just celebrating McCarthy and all I can't get over you vacuum if you gave me Tom Brady for this one year. Would I think we had a little better win. The last time you picked up a back you picked up a back yes exactly exactly talking bounce back you. There's nothing to vacuum. I picked up the other day clean up a Hazel Mess. Well I did I did we Cassini right here Ernestine skip. I had to use the vaccines. No you didn't use the vacuum time. How about you?

"See. Let's see this game Saturday. And then we'll have plenty to talk about. After Percy all reports are saying that Jason Garrett will not be part of of the cowboys organization moving forward after Garrett had his fourth eight eight season rumors have swirled around who jerry could target as the next head coach coach. Urban Meyer Sean. Payton Lincoln Riley are a few prominent names that have been thrown out as hostility. So Shannon. Who would you hire to be the next cowboys couch? Well I don't know if I'd be in the situation that had I had Jerry Jones money could own the team. I would probably be willing to pay someone and step back and let them do their job. But for me skip. I would do everything I possibly could get. Sean Payton I would offer. I would offer New Orleans deal similar to what Tampa gave the raiders to get Jon Gruden to Hutus to one eight million. Now we've prorated we. You know did a little calculation today. Jamie emblazoned two percent inflation. That's a little over eleven million dollars now. So that's what I would go because Jerry said the columbine skip you have no idea they'll see the how the what is the scene size check. He'd be willing to write right. You put that Super Bowl title. Jon Gruden John Grew. Sean Payton might be of close to a guarantee as you could get. But you're going to have to concede step back. You know that. And Stevens job now to convince his dad. Okay Dad we've been doing it this way for almost twenty twenty five years Quarter Century and we haven't had success doing the way that you wanted to do it. Now try and go back to the old way the way that in a in and a five year span we had three super bowls and then we lost it. Title Game Let's go back to. Let's try that an extended period of time and see if we can get back to where you and I both bank. We should be improbably where we should be. That would be what I'd be willing to give Jerry. Jones have AJA operates. See Jerry's under the umbrella jerry when he goes out and does deal with. At and T. or Pepsi or whomever. He's trying to extract the most money possible but when he wants players the coaches. He's trying to give him a little money as possible. I believe those days are over paying somewhat. You know you'd head coach of the cowboys Skip I don't know why Lincoln Riley would leave. He's making six point four to Oklahoma. Why the hell? I'm going to take a pay cut and have to deal with you Jerry. Ada Bother me. Br The chancellor president whatever they call them college not bothering me. You are going to be bothering me. So that's what I would do skip. I would go. I WANNA proven commodity. Sean Payton has proven commodity. A you can get air. So that's what I'll be willing to do. Because I'm thinking Sean Payton was the first one was two first round picks up. I'm picking somewhere between twenty nine and thirty two. 'cause I believe that's where you'll be picking with Sean Payton. I believe years foregone conclusion. At worst case scenario you're going to be played but barring a major significant injury you going to be in the NFC title game and you probably going to go further with him. So would it be a bad thing to give up to first round the two a two thousand twelve fifteen million dollars. Now you're gonNA have to now. That's what you give them. The compensation to New Orleans. You're going to have to make higher paid coach Jon Gruden so you're going to be looking has somewhere around one hundred and twenty million dollars. That's the overseen sides. Check that you're going to have the right skills to get you that super bowl so that would be my first choice. Okay I love your first choice. I just don't think it's reasonable. I don't think it's realistic. I think it's pie in the sky. I don't think New Orleans this would ever take two first round picks in two seconds for Sean Payton signed a new big long-term deal. Why would they do that? They'd say why would we give Dallas our guy who's proven and by the way. I like their chances this you so if they might be going off give us. I'm just saying yeah now I don't know how many I you want to give up and mortgage your whole future to get Sean Payton out. There would be a price point where they'd say if you give us four first rounders. We'll do it but at what point do you just say you're cutting off your no Ono's despite your gave up four four. AD getting the getting the Generational Little Colt for two Question let's just say you gave up three first rounders and fifteen million Sean. Payton won two super bowls. Would it be worth it. Yes but again I'm I'm still not sure that would be enough to get him out of New Orleans and I don't know what drew brees future is. I don't know where Shaun's head would be on this. But he has been in the cowboy system system before he knows. This feels like not to be the head coach but to work under Jerry Jones. He would parcells. Yeah he was there so he knows where the trap doors is our and he knows what the downside would be in how handicapped he might be and he might also have decided by now. He's just really happy with the saints. And they're a really good team team on the rise except at quarterback so I don't know how many more years drew brees hats. I don't know if this is if he wins the super bowl then. Maybe you tried to wait out Tom. I think you're probably bleep right about that. So you brought up Lincoln Riley. So I'm going to start their first. There is no way Jerry. Jones should hire Lincoln Riley. It would be a disaster. In fact I'll go along record right now and I'm a University of Oklahoma Fan born and raised I would take Jason Garrett over Lincoln right now I would take Jason Garrett. I don't like anything any way shape or form about how Lincoln Riley Overseas the defensive side of the ball because they have been a disaster on defense all three three of their playoff bound years. They overcame the defense. Just the way in some ways. Dallas almost overcame its defense and it would be more of the same. I thought killing more chasing you had to do with it but I thought Kellen Moore had a pretty good year calling plays so. That's not the problem in Dallas. We we don't need Lincoln Riley to call our place because Kellen Moore is pretty good at that over your keep the more. I don't know what the next head coach is going to do. But I'm okay but what I'm saying is is that doesn't need to get fit in for Lincoln Riley think about what happened. He had Baker Mayfield. They lost at home as a thirty one. Point favorite favorite to Iowa state in the your Baker got them to the playoff game and then they were ahead thirty one seventeen at half and they wound up against Georgia. Remember that game and they wind up losing fifty four to forty eight because they played no defense and Georgia's just went up and down the field with Sony Michelle and it was just it was just like a track meet and then what happened to poor cuyler Murray He. That was the worst good team. Defense in the history of college. Football and Lincoln presided handed over. You know again you're the head coach. So you preside over that side of the ball then this year. They seem to be a little bit improved on defense and then they go to Kansas State and give up forty gate to a team that had managed to score. Fourteen against Oklahoma state and thirteen against Baylor helped me out go to. It's just wrong wrong wrong and then I had to sit not too many days ago. Yeah just a few days ago I had to sit and watch Jonesboro. WHO's really good? But he threw seven touchdown passes in the first half against since Lincoln. Riley's defence again. He's not the coordinator but he is the head coach. I don't want more of the same in Dallas. You can't sell that to me again. I'll I'll take tried and true. Jason Garrett's eight nate over that so and then I don't know how Matt Rule is at the top of these lists a little bit is vastly. I don't get it. He was the assistant offensive line coach for one year with the New York. Giants Lugo Okay. But but that was one year and he turned around temple. Wow and then he sort of pulled up baylor out of the scandalous gutter right and they were ahead. Thirty one take over. My Oklahoma sooners at home this year and blew it in the second half really. They lost the big twelve championship. Game to Oklahoma. And you're gonNa tell me he's the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Stop it which leads me back to a guy who has tried and very true in college football. I've told you from the start. I am a big urban Meyer Fan. He obviously works at this network junior. been around him a lot. I've been around him a little but I've watched him very closely Utah and at Florida State and he was spectacularly Jalali successful at all three stops has he coached one down and he has not just has charisma. He has drive about him in fact he drives himself. Sometimes uh-huh completely over the edge needs to take a year off but I would take a sort of refueled urban Meyer ready to go in Dallas. And he said on Colin Ellen show what was it about a month or so ago sure. That's one pro job I would have to look at. It is America's team and he obviously had Ezekiel Elliott at Ohio state. And he says. Dak Jack Prescott Zeke. Yeah I would take that. And somehow urban even as a he's offensive oriented play caller. His defenses are always pretty eighty two very good. So who gets that side of the ball. So I would be very intrigued by urban Meyer and that would probably be my first choice. I don't know of urban. Could by the Jerry Jerry Jones bullet. Because you gotta you gotta swallow it is yeah you know. And again Ginnie said many times he likes to control every little nuance onto the program. and Jerry would have to concede a lot. There's an x factor in that. Could he be Jimmy Johnson. Come straight from college to pro football and be a quick success. Could he be a Jim Harbaugh. Who came right out of Stanford? In those first three years in San Francisco it was off the charts they they got to the NFC championship game game three straight years and got one super bowl and should have won that because he switched horses in Midstream and went with Colin Kaepernick. And I can't give up the fact that Jim Harbaugh showed me a lot in pro football. So would I have him on my radar. Yes I would because obviously Dallas hadn't been to an NFC championship game in twenty five five years and he got to three in a row right out of the game okay. That's pretty great. But could Jim Harbaugh get along with Jerry. No could not zero zero chance they. They wouldn't even make it through the first interview. I don't think I don't think he just the dynamic doesn't give signatures will be you like like this guy took a loser. Oh Saint Nick. Seriously skill really want pretty disastrous at Miami College Drexel. But here's the thing the quarterback I believe the situation had he got drew brees because they flogged drew brees now remember scale. They signed Dante culpepper. who was coming off the injured?.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on First Things First
"Things like this. All falls on the head coach at some point probably soon restored we have been debating Dak versus wins all season in a culminating in two seven seven teams going out there yesterday and battling did what you saw yesterday. Put an end to the Denver debate. Not at all not. I'm still with back now. I think Wentz is the better physical talent. There's no question about that. He's better passer the football but one one win a regular season win over a dysfunctional Dallas cowboys team. When you only score seventeen points is not going new convinced me that you've arrived arrive by winning a playoff game or two especially with a lot of your players won the superbowl already teammates? Dak Jack Prescott has won a playoff game DAK Prescott is thirty nine and twenty three as a Starter Carson wentz thirty twenty four as the Starter Dak Prescott still has a higher. QBR AMD passer rating. This year has stalled for more yards. Way more yards than Carson Wentz has DAK Prescott has proven. He is a leader of men. He is a lead. I'm not saying he's perfect out a lot of room to grow but he is a leader of men. You don't question his leadership and neither do who is teammates in that locker. Room Carson Wentz. Are we convinced he could go into Dallas and handle that locker room because he had trouble handle in the locker room in Philadelphia. And I don't think it's a coincidence. That a lot of the veterans got hurt. Now you got these young guys that just want to prove that they can play in the NFL following his lead in credit to them and somewhat discredited veterans who weren't following his lead. But that's I'm still. I still have questions about the intangibles with Carson Wentz. He's been great the last few weeks. I do think he's growing in that in those intangibles. But I'm not convinced he could lead in Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper these big big personalities that they have in Dallas not to mention the circus atmosphere that Dak Prescott has to maneuver so I think that I still think it's up for debate. Who's the better quarterback? Yeah I going into the year. I didn't think it was debatable. I thought it was Carson and I understood the numbers and I understood that Dak If you over the course of their entire hire careers going into this season had better numbers than Carson. A lot of that work was done DAX rookie season when he was extraordinary and Carson wentz was a typical rookie quarterback years two and three Carson was clearly the better player but he'd gotten hurt and the question for me with Carson. Wentz going into this season was Kenny. Kinney stay healthy for a full season. Can he win a game like this. Will he's healthy for the full year. He just one game like this. He was better coming out of college. That's it was the second overall pick and fourth round pick he his peak has been higher. That's why he was on his way to winning. MVP and Dak his rookie year was a contender. But not really and since then no. We're close and the to me has always been about Carson. What Dak has gotten credit for is is winning games like this one and in the biggest game of the year Dak no showed and in the biggest game of the year Carson Wentz without any of his weapons had the highest completion percentage? He's had all year the most yards per attempt. He's at all year one of his four highest passer ratings all year and the second most total yards he's thrown for all year in the close in was essentially Carson wentz defacto first playoff game. I know he doesn't get a playoff win for it but if they lose their eliminated and let's compare that to Dak where Dak Dak this year show him against the high quality opponents DAK Prescott numbers this year against projected division division winter saints Packers Eagles twice in the Patriots terrible and two of those touchdowns against the projected division winners came in garbage time against the Green Bay packers in the game there around thirty everyone three Dax gonna mop up the mediocre to bad teams but this year against New Orleans. No Teddy Bridgewater. When you're three and zero touchdowns one pick pick a seventy-three rating against Green Bay coming off that loss? You're down thirty one. Two three two touchdowns three picks in New England zero touchdowns one pick against Philadelphia yesterday yesterday zero touchdowns a seventy five passer rating. I needed deck to prove this to me overwhelmingly. This year. Chris because I just my gut told me man when I watch these guys one of these guys I look at and I say that guy can be a star quarterback another guy look at night say if everything around him just right right. He's he can play really well and he's not GonNa kill me and so to me. I THE DEBATE WON'T BE OVER FOR YEARS I'm sure but Carson Wentz further confirmed affirmed what I already believed. which is the better of the two players? See I'm big on intangibles is quarterback. Tom Brady and Joe Montana greatest ever and the intangible she wasn't just the physical tools I agree. Carson has the greater physical tools but I think that clearly has the better intangibles now carson took a big except yesterday but again is still was a regular season game is a seventy seventy look who carson was working with lewd acts when working with deck had his full artillery there right Carson had not their last name was that he was throwing the ball to Dak had. How many drop passes six yesterday now? Gritty he missed some throws to some high throwing. Let's let's all over and he did any bash another intangible that no excuses I go out there and play so I I'm with you on Carson's physical ability and the eye test but when I look at the locker room looking at the leadership all of that that's where I saw with that and I I've never thought was a guy that could carry a team but when certain things are in place I think he's a leader mini can win. You helped me win the super just very quickly here for move Sean. I understand the leadership point but these last three weeks that might be how you become a leader of men in the locker room. He hasn't been around to play December football his rookie year. They're not in good his second year he gets hurt his third year he gets hurt a come from behind win against the giants and compromise win against Washington and then a great win to to keep your season alive and essentially almost a fact a win the division against your heated your hated rival Dallas. All of a sudden he now has had those was opportunities to win over. Maybe some of the skepticism in the locker room and maybe he's done over.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on Bet The Board
"More than a touchdown very compelling to say the least pain when we look of America's game of the week between the cowboys and Rams in the afternoon this one the numbers has moved all over the place and as it currently stands at Fox. Bet You're looking at the Ramsey one and a half point road favorite here total on the game forty eight and a half breath and we talked on Monday. Look at number here. Had Dallas right around a three point favorite. I'm not sure there are two teams in the league whose perception has changed more over the last couple of weeks. The Rams two short weeks ago we're on just two and a half point favorites against Arizona and professional batters were running over men women and children to bet the cardinals as home underdogs in that particular. Take your spot last week. We know the pros were on the rams against the seahawks but the general public wanted no part of backing the rams in a must win situation fast forward to what we're seeing this Sunday. Eh and at Fox bet nine out of every ten tickets are coming in on the Los Angeles Rams yes we know. The cowboys have their biggest game of the season on deck regardless of how things go against against Los Angeles but there's still that element of playoff revenge. There's extra time to prepare playing for your jobs. I guess the most logical place to start is when you look at this number number. Are you surprised. It's moved as much as it has or do you think it was inevitable that it had a trend this why so I think that's that's really the most interesting part right. There's a ton of match ups that are Washington. I shouldn't say ton but there's a couple of match ups that are interesting But when it comes down to some of these games a lot of it's about price and there were even look headlines last week that were high as Dallas minus four. So now all of a sudden you're entering the market and as we talk about this todd some shops out to Rams Maya's too. It's been six point adjustment but I know it's through the zero but it's also three and there's probably not a ton of value on the rams at this point. The question becomes kind of do what he alluded to does. Dallas really need this game the answers now and I think that's that's kind of the glaring factor. Here is that the rams need this game like blood in Dallas. Alex does not And what I can tell you is the rams are sharp but it came in on Monday at three and and then there was another little. Grab at pick them. But I don't know it I hate to say because the rams could go out there and win by thirty if they okay Karen Dallas does not. But it's about entering the market and I just I have a tough time entering at this point so I mean that's really where I'm at. I haven't done a ton with this game but I think when you look at any rams game todd right and we talked about this last week and it bode very well for them right not just the spot or the situation or or the price in the market but when you look at these. He's Rams Games it's like. Hey pressure matters on both sides of the ball and so if Dallas does care here right you would think they're offensive line is stacked in his lawyers. Odors is going to provide some time for Dak in the passing game because yes the rams are very good number two in the League in pressuring but that's probably not going to be as good good against an offensive line. That's this talented. That's good ted. This much time to prepare. You would hope that Amari Cooper Cooper has had some extra time to get a little bit healthier that would be advantageous And then on the other side of the ball you looking at the rams and their offensive line has improved dramatically with with Austin Blythe moved to center. They've also put David Edwards in at guard and he's made a world of difference in all of a sudden. The offensive line has been solidified a little. They've been much better in pass protection over the last handful of games With they're going to face a defensive line that is talented gets to the quarterback at the tenth highest clip in the NFL. So when you just look at the pressure metrics drastically skewed from last week where Seattle gets none defensively and they give up on offensively right. It's not that case this week. So if Dallas does care if Dallas finally says Jesus like let's be professionals here They're going to have probably the advantage in the trenches here and that would scare me when I'm entering the market now it to win the game was four last week. That's kind of my deterrent. And why can't I can't do this the game anymore would have you seen from watching the cowboys in recent weeks. The Toronto with this team defensively we know offensively. Hey they've kind of lacked and identity Dak Jack Prescott putting up. Big Numbers Zeke Elliot. I don't WanNa say it's been an afterthought but he hasn't been the focal point that he's been in the last couple of years but on the defensive side there's so much talent and we know late and vander. Sandra Russia's missed a lot of time but they couldn't get off the field against the Chicago bears and I wonder if there's anything you're seeing from. A schematic standpoint. That's not easily corrected or that's real problematic that Hey Dallas can spend some extra time in the room and maybe get righted in their push to ultimately try and win this division. Yeah I mean you hate to say this because I think everyone anticipated did that. This defense was going to be very good. It was going to be an elite unit right. They spent money to kind of resign guys along the defensive line to keep that as a strength they thought they had their there are two linebackers for the next half decade Byron Jones was in a contract year news going to take a step up and deliver and all of a sudden. You would have this defense quickly. We trended away from that right. If you remember during that hot three no starred I suddenly was telling you. I'm like Jesus. This defense is an abortion. What's going on here and it's been the case all season if you look right now? Dallas is bottom third in the NFL both in rushing and passing success rate defense and what it comes down to and from. What I've been hearing is is the defense is very basic to figure out? They're going to tell you what they're doing pre snap. And if you have a quarterback that can kind of of Figure things out pre snapped. You're going to know where the ball needs to go and we saw that Mitchell. Trubisky can do it. I would think Jared Goff in in mcvay have the ability to do the same thing I think so. There hasn't been a lot of imagination defensively from what I'm seeing on the all twenty two from what people football people smarter than me or saying There just hasn't been that imagination and I think this is probably something again we're not having the best. NFL season. So it's not we're not gloating right. We we always want to be ahead of the market We've been ahead of the market on assessing thing. This Dallas Defense and I know defense and Rod. Marinelli isn't the Click Bait that what's wrong with doc in the clapper and Jake Elliott right. It doesn't as much eyeballs calls or click on it but ron defense has been horrific like this is really a problem and no one saying anything. I great guy but this this Dallas House Defense has been horrible in people's needs to start focusing on what's going on here defensively because I don't know if they're going to get this fixed I really don't don't and I think a lot of it is scheme in you. Heard Troy Aikman last Thursday. Be Like man looking at this defense for the first half. They just tell you what they're gonNA do. And and that's I think pretty scary and pretty pretty indicative of of what's going with the styles defense. Hopefully you would think with a few extra days. There's going to be a couple more wrinkles here. Defensively for the cowboys. One last thing in. I can't always get you to rub the crystal ball and get the answer that we're looking forward as we've seen this as we as we've seen this number go even see a two out out there. Is there a chance that you think this number could even get as high as two and a half given all the momentum and public sentiment because this will be the most heavily bet game of the entire day day I would imagine going into Sunday night football knowing that it is in that four twenty five eastern time slot and you look at the Games. It's up against head to head. Atlanta San Francisco doesn't move the Needle Jacksonville Oakland Cleveland Arizona. Shanahan against his old his old. Stan Quin then Vikings chargers. I just wonder if there's not got an appetite for the dog right away. If there will be a potential in the market to maybe even by the three with the cowboys something that I would have thought it was preposterous to say last Sunday night when this number opened and I don't know I would think at the very least you're probably not getting to three here right because it opens up an avenue of of guys who took three with the rams have an ability to take three with Dallas. I don't know if you WANNA leave yourself that susceptible you would think two's probably the cutoff. I'm not sure at that. That's a That one could be above my pay grade fascinating to watch to see ultimately where this is number finally settles Given such strong public support I imagine contrary out Andrus. That's wild especially in a cowboys game against Dallas for Rams team that nobody wanted to part of last weekend so hey maybe The Seattle seahawks defense. Which has been the ultimate cure offer jared Goff and getting his confidence it ends up including the incorporation of all those talented rams receivers has people believing that this team will once again continue to resemble the team that came up just short winning the Lombardi trophy feet last year from the Games on Sunday pain into a game? We'll see transpire tonight. which is Thursday on Thursday night football one team playing out the string the other playing for home field advantage throughout the AFC and this number has taken off like an absolute rocket with Baltimore now? A sixteen sixteen and a half point home favourite Fox total in this game. Forty five is they welcome in the New York jets. You can only hope that lady and bell elected to pack his bowling ball ball for this particular trip. If there are some good lanes that he can take part in the Baltimore told them to stay active. They stacked this is like I like he played NATO bill belichick right if we're recording things on the sidelines. We're going to have him in patriots gear just in case we get caught like..

Go bad yet so hangs out here so before we do that. Let's read also. We had a backup plan. Our good friend friend Tom for Nellie. WHO has a rivalry with Hank? We're GONNA call him.

Is Hey this as hank when we call them It's okay. The cowboys got called for a bullshit penalty because it makes up for the. NFL wouldn't let the Patriots get away with cheating assure. No that's true And then follow me on twitter at Hanney's which is totally not a nickname gave myself fifteen that that is tough. And that's our good friend Tom for.

He's he's moved on now. He's on penalty lock penalty. Lock so just fuck with him. Be really serious that the N.. Respect you're just getting this at the Patriots segment of the Of the show. He's probably he's really trust. I yeah I just closed audition and it's like I just the the file seen like it's just not the right size for like what is there still. I'm still uploading them right now. can I just like facetime you and then they killed you see a so then I'll just have you faced on. Yeah give it to me. He's going to be so sad he's he's drunk right now and he's pissed. Where are you going to bed? Sorely still doing this. Show thousand corrupted all files defied we mad subset. We scared I was very scared. I was mad. I okay. We'll see tomorrow congrats on the Patriots. Thank you have any. Were actually at the Patriots portion of the show right right now you have anything to say about turnover luck. So that's all right Patriots Cowboys Albouy. Jason Garrett's fucking idiots. Yeah To be fair to Jason Garrett he had his mind played with all week by master puppet Master Bill Belichick so Belichick was talking about a story. There's a story out in the news this week that That belichick wanted to to be the cowboys head coach back in the day when he got fired from the browns okay slash Raven said he wanted to quit for the cowboys. Okay and then Garrett had to deal with all the media fallout. They came from that. And just imagining that Jerry. Jones would much rather have ballot check than him. Yes so like knowing that his boss knows that he made a mistake. Going down this path okay. Fair But he's dumb and exactly what we thought would happen would happen. He got outcoached which isn't really I mean? Bill checks the best coach in NFL. History put Jason Really truly is stupid. Ezekiel Elliott was running and running. Well and the Patriots. If you had one thing that you could say about them it's probably probably they. You can run on them a little bit. 'cause they're pass defenses fantastic. Stefan Gilmore is the defensive player of the year but he touched the ball. I think he had six rushes in the second half and then he did the Dan Quinn special down seven with six minutes left to go forth fourth seven on the Patriots Eleven. You're in New England. You're trying to beat the New England patriots. You kicked a field goal is more points. You kicked a field goal. You fucking idiot. That's why I don't know the cause I can't kept cutting back from Jason Garrett's Bella check and they both were wet and the wind was blowing on the sidelines and it looked like it ad for the lighthouse. The House and Garett got panicky was like I better take the points while I can't on the road and then it turns out that the math didn't quite work out in his favor on that one on. You can't expect perfect. I'm actually at the point to Jerry. Jones did a all time Jerry Jones in the hallway press conference after where he said with the makeup of this team. I shouldn't be just frustrated. We have the talent so the talent isn't the problem What else could it be right so jerry? This is your where two point now. Were guess what. I don't feel bad for you dude. You should've fired him a while ago. It's on you the fact that he's still the coach. You can't be mad. That is your fault and he gave him vote. The confidence to he gave a vote of confidence that he's going to be our coach for the rest of the season. I has there ever been a coach. That's been fired in the same year that let's say that the cowboys were in first place in week fifteen or whatever and they go on to to win. That division has been a coach fired right before their team won the division division right before the playoffs right before the playoffs. I could see him doing. It's just crazy jerry. Jones keeps complaining about Jay Jason Garrett when you are the one person who can change this problem It's I I mean it really is your. It's it's the drill tweet. Someone helped me with my budget. Yeah he's channels every month Eh. You spending too much money on on on a bad coach. It would be helpful if Jason Garrett ever said a word and I know we. We mentioned it earlier but he he really doesn't talk ever. It's bizarre. Yeah for as much time as he gets on the camera his beady little mouth never it never opens up so I don't know what he does in terms of coaching right. What decisions as you making? I think he just. Yeah I don't know he just Kinda hangs out and beats up on really bad teams which I want to have a little discussion about Dak Prescott for a second here DAK Prescott who has been very good this year Dak Prescott. Whenever he plays like a big time opponent? It feels like he doesn't step up to it. And you know the bidders defense will make anyone not look great but he is five and thirteen against winning teams since it's two thousand sixteen so really not great so really not outright and when you think about the games this year like okay they lost to the saints in New Orleans. They lost to the packers at home. They lost to the Vikings at home. They lost the Patriots in New England. They have beaten up on some really shitty teams and the rest of the schedule. Rule has been not so great fortunately for him he plays in the NFC east. Yeah he gets to play six games against really shitty teams. I'm just saying don't you. Don't you have that feeling. Where Dak Jack Prescott? He's got to win one of these big games for me to be like okay now. I really feel because he is a good quarterback and you can't he's not like he is his Wherever you wanted the floating tears or whatever? He's probably somewhere in the top seven everywhere. You look at traffic analysis. He's he's in command of the second. Best offense offense in the NFL like Dak.. Prescott is definitely if you say yes or no. Should we pay this guy. It's a yes right. Yeah so so. I'm not even saying that. Oh they should chefs hesitation or second thoughts. I'm saying I'd like to see him. Go into a hostile environment or even have a good team come to Dallas and have a really really really great performance and I guess he kinda had it against the Vikings in their play calling fell apart there. But I don't know it just felt like there was some place that could have been had and it just never happened. I at at the very minimum. I would like to see by quarterback not get his ass kicked by random people in Panama City. Yes that's me is one of those things where it's like Point can't defend defend yourself in the capital of spring break after a couple jello shots. How are you going to be able to go out there? Foxborough and the wind and the rain with a smudge smudge cameras. That we somehow still can't figure out how to get water off camera lenses in the year. Two Thousand Nineteen Go. Pros should make that go revival again. which ones Kodak remember when we did that last year round as every every spring break we should just do it? And then he gets comments about No D. Dak.. Prescott is one of those quarterbacks. We're back still because we do this with a lot of there's there's guys who in super bowls and then there's everyone else and for everyone else it's a like pre black and white either your Dak Prescott Guy you're not and you don't really there's no nuance in there. I liked that Prescott a lot. I think he's a very good quarterback. I think he's guy you've got to give money to I. Just don't I can't remember. The last time he won a big began. We have to come up with levels own. Earn names of the different levels for quarterbacks because I think think where he's at right now is the the best good quarterback he is. You know what he is. He is right now taking over the seat. The Matthew Stafford is leaving vacant A guy who is a very good quarterback sometimes very good quarterback doc tons of talent can win you games by himself but you still haven't seen him have that big big moment this thing about about Dactyl is I don't think that Dak loses too many any games for you. Yeah that's true. 'cause he always can blame Jason Gear. He also has a lot better talented lions but yes. Yeah I just. I don't know it's just an interesting thing. I've been thinking about a lot with that because I think he has been phenomenal this year but then I went back and looked as like dim member really sort of three and the cowboys the best team in the NFC. He's the best beat no-one he's the the best good quarterback occasionally peaking at like the worst great quarterback right right. He is in. I always had the tiers of sock. It's just you have quarterbacks when Super Bowl and everyone else sucks he's the best sake but that doesn't feel right now because he's better than that. Yeah he's better than my point. He's better than suck right. That's actually that's the level that he's at right now right okay okay. So he's he's the suckiest quarterback that doesn't suck right got it. I think so uh-huh yeah I'll do better than Carson Wentz. Yes right now at this point. Yes that's powered rather have have Dak Prescott Okay let's so that is those are he has. Here's what Dak Prescott does. He has the ability ability to make skip. Bayless Look Sane. At times in skips blind allegiance to write occasionally one one out of every three games. I'm like skip Cabela's knew something he'll do something like this guy he when he gets. You know he'll be like running well or like play action hitting guys on on the run and you're like damn this guy's awesome and then he'll play a game like today where he wasn't he wasn't the reason the cowboys lost but I think he could have been the reason the cowboys won. There is yeah I finally got to it. He could. He could have won that game for the cowboys if he had elevated his game in extra spot Yep skip bayless isn't going to be throwing his Jersey into into the trash this week right he might put it in the penis heightened microwave right..
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Yes. steelers live team Scare by okay. Let's see what they do. It DAK is too and teen with Zeros for seventy five yards or less. Those two wins the giants in Alliance One guy to win three. So who daily be. We're talking about this year. Okay this year you got to win this year. Okay what about the same type of yards Zeke. How the recognize now Minnesota playoff team? You see you see the reoccurring theme here skip. He's GonNa do Zeke. They would've one the games the head and put the ball back in those. We had a source quote the other day saying they finally realized they made a big mistake. That game was second to eleven and they gave a disease twice. And then through Zeke on Ford Dan. I've added idea ask you due to stop reading the paper especially homer play papers like delegates. Not Oh this is what I guess what. I'm trying to figure out here now. Now with Zeke. Had this thing going. Everybody didn't want to give credit. They told me that they dominated tasks meal Zach. Mark the reason why they took all these guys in the first round they wanted to be able to run. The football office wanted to give all limited screaming. He's the best back foot law but but at some point in time is Zeke is not the same guy or you. Are Those the same guy. That's opening whole task with back. Surgery and Knee Surgery Zach. Traffic Frederick missed all of last year. Zack Martin has been bothered by back in Neath Lau Collins is in and out of the way you very it and he just came back from. But that's all Zeke But skill here's the thing if you're that guy if he d nickerson you just find holes and may calls the best Eric Dickerson. The average hundred five yards behind that line right now. You know before ought not you right now but in your skill. Also think that when you have Zeke back there you still. He's still Zeke Elliot. Even though he's not putting up yard yard we customarily used to seeing put up. Imagine if a team knows that daddy's GonNa throw the ball forty five fifty times now. He's going to face more different coverages orig- because there's never going to be a chance that you can sneak that guy down in the book you look at Minnesota Harrismith very very rarely played in the middle of the field. He was at the line of scrimmage. I'm sorry I saw him over the past coverage like all over it. I think you guys are grossly exaggerate. I'm not seeing nine men in the box anymore. Four straight up. What bridge whether jared say Jerry said when he played Minnesota what did you say you mean after minutes? After after the game everybody knew they were not lendsay. Kalia and even Jason Gear said that completion to Connor Jar win a Common Java Blake Jarwan. It was a result of whiskey when he faked that ball Z. His belly and Mama ran over there to aid. You meet at the end of the Detroit. Yes yes after Zeke had gone no. We're on first down here. Go nowhere other times. They gave it to him a first down at Detroit against the twenty six ranked defense and he went and basically nowhere. He went nowhere. I down a steel. Would he fake all the guys on second and ten everybody. Everybody went over there. I don't think everybody did. I just think Blake I can roll out because there was a threat that doc was going to top the ball all and run with it. That's what happened you know. Hey you guys are living in the past because your pride is up just like Jerry's pride is up even defending him on his radio. Show last Monday and said we will give the ball to twenty one remember. He said he's still one of the best players in the national football league. He's speaking with his pride and his wallet. Because because Jerry knows deep down I'm looking like I made a big mistake to make mistakes. Oh yeah he's uh-huh so bill Manuel. I have nothing but respect for because he is. ESPN'S NFL expert analyst and he just lays it on the line in an read. These quotes one more quick time. It's time to stop pretending that the cowboys run their offense through Zeke or that Dak Prescott needs the star running back act to create throwing opportunities. This is DAX offense and the cowboys are better for it. Then he goes on to say that Zeke has looked ordinary in twenty twenty nine hundred by his standards. He has looked ordinary. We haven't seen much burst says bill. I've been saying that for a month. Where is he where? Where's the little break break you in four fourth combine? I'm not seeing. He looks like he's plotting in Kabo Sand right now. I don't see attack mode I. I don't see contagious rage. That he's run with with the greatest body. Lean I've ever seen for many back and finally bill. Barnwell concludes the arguments. That Dak Jack Prescott needed an effective elliot to move the ball as a passer warrant supported by past evidence and look down right foolish now Dell right foolish and he makes the case that when Toni Ballard has been on the football field in place of Zeke. They have been slightly more effective. Because Tony as a rookie has a little a bit more burst. He's a little more. Electric than Zeke is right now and I'm not making the case on what Tony Pollard. To replace saying they're not afraid of Tony pilots wrestling. Okay I I think Zeke. You'll hear expert Shannon shot saying they run the ball. We'll everybody needs to run the ball some or you're all in big trouble so every defensive coordinator says I gotTa do is stop the run. But it's not stopped Zeke anymore. It's just stop. Stop the run. Nobody nobody freight-only Paula again. Pro Football Focus also ranks the Patriots. Run Defense Twenty ninth the League. So why is this not an opportunity you say if talks the DP this game. The truth is if Zeke is that dude now no he's still backed God. Bless you gotta remember those pros over there to their professional. Their job is to stop you. Thanks a bunch of bums those those all the Patriots must be thinking. Those are professional players. I mean they did the same Detroit. The Detroit did the same thing to us a year ago. We would hottest team all of a sudden boom. We got exposed Eric. He led the league in rushing yards per game for three straight years years he dominated this league. He's eight rushing now. I.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on First Things First
"Lamar Jackson has been nothing short of spectacular. This season the Ravens second year stars in the thick of the MVP race in coming off his second perfect passer rating of the year. The former Ravens quarterback Trent dilfer believes Lamar Mar.. Success represents something much more important. He went so forest to say. Lamar Jackson is the poster child for the evolution of football. Our prime what. What do you make of that high praise? I think Trent dilfer is absolutely correct. You think about it back. In the day we wanted our best players to be running backs and wide receivers and defend defensive backs. Now you want your best player to be your quarterback that God is going to test the ball thirty thirty five times. A game had the ability to throw it or running. Make sure that you can win a football game. The Mark Jackson is guy. He's the best athletes on the field at all times he gets into open. Field doesn't run like a quarterback he looks like an elusive one of the best running backs in the league when when he ran has ability to run the football. I think he's special. Nothing as a cottage game continues to evolve which it really already has now. You have a bunch of young quarterbacks that have the ability to run on anthro you put those guys into the League in the thought process has to be different. Maybe they may not last ten twelve years. Tom Brady and different guys because they're not in the pocket and they're running Lina football but maybe they will they give you help win. Football Games for five six years. That's going to be a great window. We'll see how Lamar last as far as his health. But I think if you can get five six great years. Here's from a guy like Lamar Jackson. And then towards the end of his career he becomes better at throwing the football. Now you now is worth and now you have eight nine ten years of great football. I think that makes sense for a lot of NFL program. Your point on the timeline. We one point in sports I think media fans organizations were way a under concerned about the long term future forget about draft picks. Forget about what is going to do our cap now. Now now we have overcorrected in that regard and now in the NBA Steph. Curry is broken. His hand that is great for the warriors because now in twenty twenty two they might have a better player that we with Lamar. You're it should not be the concern about what's going to look like in twenty twenty-five what's it GonNa look like on 1225 Christmas this year it's GonNa look damn good and so why agree with you a thousand percent on that to transplant. And it's I think deeper point than just about Lamar Jackson. Statistically this season the best five of quarterbacks in football by almost any metric in one order another Russell Wilson to Shawn Watson Lamar Jackson. Patrick Mahomes Dak Jack Prescott. What are they all have in common? Now somebody will say well. They're all black and that's true but that's not the whole story there. They are all quarterbacks who because as of partially because of race and partially because of style would have been further overlooked if not overlooked entirely a decade ago. A certainly certainly a generation ago would have been forced to change positions a generation and a half ago and we are all better off now that the best available talent talent are getting opportunities to show it and that we are not simply saying square peg round hole situation where no matter what we know you do best. We're going to try to fit you in to a different system. I've always people bring up Mike Vick all the time. The Guy who I think had his window totally missed impartially early was on him. Was Vince Young Man. I watch Vince Young in college when this guy was unstoppable beat one of the greatest teams. I've ever seen almost by himself. And and then he gets to Tennessee and despite winning I think rookie of the year and being a pro bowler. It's like well you can't do the things that make you great. Why and now? We are allowing knowing these quarterbacks to do the things that make them great and building offenses around them and the entire league the entire passing of this league and offenses of leak had been elevated because of it. Well thank you gotta give credit to guys like Greg. Roman that have said listen. I don't care what you would. Why other people want you to? I want you to be able to run the football when we asked you to run in and throw the ball efficiently and effectively accurately. That's which we want you to do. We're not gonNA take away which you do well and many people just like you mentioned back in the day they would say well you know what he just just a great athlete. He's not a good enough quarterback we're not willing to allow them to develop read Romans. LISTEN WE'RE GONNA use your athletic ability to our benefit and it's worked very well for the rape. Yesterday Reggie Bush on the heard came out and said because guys like Lamar. I now want to let my kid play football whereas before maybe now you see that. There's an open path when kids. They're young that perhaps there might be coached differently. Allow black kids allowed to play quarterback in this style that will be successful in the end and not feel like there's a ceiling like okay. It will work in high school. And maybe it'll work in college but there's no the super elite athletes that the kids we whenever we talked to obviously star athletes all the time and a a lot of these guys at twelve years old people were talking about being a pro and those kids are be have always been steered to certain positions. And it's what John Harbaugh all said to Lamar on the sideline really touching moment. Where he said you're GonNa have for twenty years is wearing number eight trying to be you Lamar coach? I'm just worried about this season because he was so focused August but it it does matter and I mean they're not sound cliche is the old representation matters thing and of course it does but even the the deeper stuff aside just from football perspective we we have scarcity of quality quarterbacks and there's a whole pool that we hadn't been dipping from in the past.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on First Things First
"Is Nick Right head coach. Eric Mangini a big thing. Hugh to all of you for waking up early with us on this Veterans Day in a special sure thank you to the active and former members of the US military further time and their service men. We had a gray weekend in the NFL on acceptive expected NFL and leave very productive Saturday in college football as well. This is a great right weekend. If you stay at home and watch sport it was the weekend. Let's start with a little Sunday night. Football to kick things off this morning Dak Prescott and the Dallas cowboys choice hosting the Minnesota Vikings two very similar teams Dallas driving. Lay Down for four and five. Dax Past Zeke. Incomplete quiet night for Ezekiel L.. Elliott just sixty three yards. No scores. Vikings pressed all night left it open for one last cowboys. Try at the end axe hail. Mary intercepted so the cowboys lose. Twenty eight twenty four to Minnesota. They dropped to five and four on the season. Here's Cowboy's quarterback Prescott after a disappointing loss. I've said it before. We're GONNA lock arms. We're going to get better this this tape as a lot for us to learn from sure. It's not the outcome that we wanted but as a lot for us to a lot For us to learn from and to grow from and we will and we'll move and become better because of Nikki can't blame that guy or yesterday's loss we wanted to see the game from Dak Jack Prescott against a good team and you got that who is to blame for what happened to the cowboys last night. Let me start with what you said since ational. I thought this was one of the four or five best football games I've seen Prescott play a national television night game good team. Your team needs it and after a slow start which is indicative for the cowboys really. The last six years of Football Dak was clicking hake hitting multiple third and ten plus is distributing the ball to everyone that that connection he had with Amari Cooper toe tapping on on the sideline repeatedly including on touchdown was sensational. Which is why I put the blame for this specific loss on whoever the hell is calling all in place? Now I don't know if it's Jason Garrett I don't know if it's Kellen Moore. I don't know if it's hive mind combination of the two but when you have your quarterback playing that well and the Vikings Stevens on their heels. You're down four points. You have a drive that starts on your six yard line. Dak is six of seven throwing the football and that drive gets you to a second into the two at the eleven yard. Line and Zeke. However great he is he was not having a great game and his coaches pointed out? Oddly in his career has not been a great short yardage back. He's been great at almost everything else. Not a great reds owner short yardage back to all of a sudden. Go Away from deck to run Zeke. On second run Zeke on third third and then a pass play where they throw the ball to Ezekiel Elliott. Now that decision might have been on deck but they should have never been in a fourth in five. They were moving the ball through the air with with that Prescott. WHO Yesterday was the best player on the cowboys? By far to take the ball out of his hands in that spot and what could have been critical win for the cowboys coach to me. It's just recalling the wrong place and it almost felt like they were worried about leaving too much time if they scored rather than I trying to make sure they scored the football which down four were they obviously had to do. I think that's a little bit of an unfair assessment and time was a factor and they were trying to to shorten the game understanding that if they they got it in they would want a limited amount of time that the vikings had to come back when you look at those play calls and when you look at the calls throughout the course of the game one of the reasons that deck had such a good game because because there was a commitment to running the ball and oftentimes Dallas goes away from that so early and then teams adjust knowing that. It's going to be a pass first game and it's nowhere or near as effective in the passing game is what we saw. Last night I thought back played extremely well. I thought that the decision to keep giving Ezekiel Elliott chances. I I don't I don't see a big issue with that granted it didn't work out and I think this is what we always do. We look at it after the fact and say how could you possibly give Zeke the ball if we had thrown three times everybody who had been sitting here this morning going. How could you possibly not have given Zeke the ball those critical situations and even on the last play Jason? Jason talked about the different options that they had that four thousand five got to have it play. And you've got a good match up. You get Zeke against the linebacker. It should work. It did work. The ball just was was a little bit not late but a little bit behind the play by Kendrick so it was a great day Mike Andrews but the match make sense. You've gotTA linebacker covering from inside out you've got outside breaking route one. I look. It didn't work but wasn't a bad decision. And I understand your point that the commitment to the run early Lee put in some of those positive passing situations later. But what's also true in the reason that I thought this was one of the best games I've seen play. Is We talk about all the time that the best quarterbacks can be successful when everyone knows you're throwing when the whole stadium knows you gotta throw and during the comeback. Because they were down fourteen. Nothing to start this this football game and by the way the slow start. I don't know if that's just on the coaching staff. But that's something else that I know. You WANNA discuss. Janet Third Twelve twelve third and seven third donate third and fourteen. Those are all compl- conversions through the air when the whole stadium knows you're passing once they were down fourteen. Nothing as they were trying to climb back into the game they went to amaury. They went to Gallup. They went three straight to Randall. COBB who had his best game as a cowboy thought Dak was dealing and you're right if they had thrown three straight times after second going into we would criticize them but the way Dak was playing. May it feels almost impossible that they wouldn't have gotten it. Had they let him continue. Throw the the problem was is that they were down fourteen. Nothing before you knew it. Because they're outscoring their opponents the whole game it's in the first quarter. They're getting out scored. I think it's fifty five to thirty seven or something something the season. Why is that such a hard thing for them to overcome? It's been indicative of every game. They've come out and played this season. I it's it's really frustrating and sometimes that happens during the course. There's a season where you come out and have a slow start at the beginning of the game or you're slow starting team at the start of the second half and you try a lot of different learn things and typically. It's a different problem each time and I'm sure that's something that they've been addressing them and trying to figure out but they can't quite get get that former down and I wish it was one easy answer or something like that but there isn't it's a combination of things that have led him to this position position. And now it's a two-month Trent like the even the Miami game in week three that they ended up winning if you remember. That was a very close game at halftime. I WANNA say ten to six. But it was nip and Tuck at halftime but then since then in the first half against New Orleans three points down thirty one to three degrees bay down twenty one to three to the jets before a furious comeback that stalled out with a two point. Conversion failed attempt at the end of that game down twelve to three to the giants with three minutes left in the first half now they ended up blowing the giant out so we forget forget about it and down fourteen nothing to Minnesota. That is an enormous problem for any football team. Much less a football team that has has the what we consider to be. The best player on their offense is the running back. It's hard to stay committed to the run the way you talk about if you're down to scores by the second quarter each in every week as they have been for two months now and with those problems when you start emphasizing. It's so much it can be self-fulfilling prophecy. You can you can spend so much time I'm an effort trying to figure out what that problem was. And sometimes you just gotta you gotTa move often the focus of it in order to get guys to relax in that situation and just go out and a and play as opposed to keep adding pressure to the to the start of the game so now the cowboys needles or both side at five and four in the NFC east. Are you worried now that maybe the team we thought we were more confident. Confident would pull away from the eagles might not even make the playoffs in the cowboys. We'll listen the NFC's playoff team division. Like there's there's one chair for two teams. There's with the seahawks with with all of a sudden the Vikings again with caroline even though they lost yesterday like there's not going to be a wildcard team out of the NFC east. So Yeah you've got to be worried about Dallas especially when now we've made it nine minutes into the show. Let me look at the schedule for a moment for you especially when you realize philly now after the bye they have New England and Seattle. That's very difficult. But then it's Miami. Giants Washington Dallas and the giants again. So your final five weeks of the season. Miami's played better of late. The giants just lost assets. That's which never happened and then you have a chance to get revenge against Dallas like phillies schedule sets up so much better for them which is why it was important. Dallas keep this cushion. They have to go along with having beaten them head to head. Well you can see how easy it is to for. This happened Jenin. Nick has a slow start. Takes nine minutes to get to predicting the future her and and I do I. Do I like the cowboys chances. I don't know because I don't know which cowboys team we're GONNA get the cowboys team. That wins three in a row or the cowboys team that loses three in a row. There was a lot of great things last night especially from that. I hadn't seen on a consistent basis or throughout the course of the game like we saw last night but there are issues with the schedule moving forward and the advantage that Philly has is. There are enough veterans on that team and even even though they've had controversy even though they've had a significant amount of injuries lost going into this past week forty games from from significant contributors triggers. I the cowboys which I was fourteen or somewhere along the line. We're nowhere near the number. And they found a way to push through that so I give philly and eggs from a resilient standpoint and from an experience standpoint. We're it feels like the cowboys are trying to convince themselves that they belong in that spot once again we've yet to have a game. Where all three the superstars? Deck Amari and Zeke put.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on Brock and Salk
"What did they do. No Huddle get right to the ball third and one. You want to make sure that Dan outside containment guy is not thinking in his reacting the same way he did earlier right. If if you line up and you huddle up and everything else maybe there's a little reminder about edgy containment everything else to to that outside linebacker when you get right to the line of scrimmage on third and one when you go up tempo. What do you WanNa do you WanNa create reaction in that defense in a plan reaction or hopefully an expected reaction that you then take advantage of and I thought that game plan in the adjustments which they made in the second half were a real testament to the growth in the relationship of Russell and Brian Schottenheimer that you know what I'm comfortable comfortable playing this game. Whatever which way we've got to play Russell has said that before to us. I know that he said it to to keep an eye like hey man. We're going to do whatever it takes to win that game the bottom line business it means throwing for four or five touchdowns great if it means me running for fifty yards zero touchdowns great but whatever the game whatever every that defense does can take advantage of it. I thought Shoddy and Russ on the same page yesterday takeaways. I'll give you a quick one and then I'll probably probably have to talk as soon as I say but look probably wagons a great player. I'd really like him to make a tackle on a quarterback in the fourth quarter on third down instead he you got you don't remember that I do and unfortunately brought up some really painful memories of the Dallas game and Dak Jack Prescott running right through him and frank like come on Bobby. I make that play. I love him. He's a fantastic player so strong stopping powers amazing diagnosis stuff well. I support the huge contract games ripped job on Bobby Wagner. I was just shocked that he wasn't able to make that play yeah he and Kendricks and crew and I'll woods mentioned earlier hip been in good against the traditional run. Yes right they've been in the bengals. Were not a great run team that again yesterday aggressive and we've seen them take advantage of over screen passes and they should be good against screen three smart fast linebackers like screen passes should they should be sniffen those out left and right and yet they've gotten gashed with a few of them. I think because they've had to be so aggressive which were just not accustomed to them doing right yeah. I think that's part of it and you got three linebackers fields right and this is a little bit new unique in cool conversation. I think to continue with coach Farrell. Is You know you've you've played more base defense. I'm going to guess I haven't seen all the numbers around the entire. NFL But I'M GONNA guess. They played more based defense than anybody. In the League right most teams go to nickel you get eleven personnel. We're going to Nickelodeon gashing a few of those screens and you end up with Michael Kendricks defending downfield and he gets called for huge pass interference so you end up stopping the run. That's true in this league. You Stop the run. You give yourself an opportunity to win all right. There you go that is our full. Instead of takeaways probably had more that we have gotten to to that love takeaways. There's so many things you can see over the course of a gay man and I'd love to bits. You like tidbits more than takeaways. Sometimes that that makes sense. I could see that about you. You're more of a tidbit. Hey I gotta ask you about something and most of this game was positive yesterday and we'll come back to a lot of the great with Russell Wilson and Caroline his his big decision but there is one gigantic question mark that emerges out of this and I want to ask you about it next and broken salk this camping season heritage distilling company company hopes you get a chance to leave the rush behind in favor of taking in the great outdoors. Just don't leave behind the BS B Brown Sugar Bourbon. It's a cabin essential. Esp Brown sugar suburban gig harbor Washington thirty percent alcohol by volume the ease Bracken Song from the Alaska Airlines Studio your host Brockie word. Can you ought to know how about that too laughter. They were open to with this time this year there too and no last year the playoffs and a first round exit this year who knows we'll talk to. Pete Carroll coming up in an hour or weekly chat with the coach Pete Carroll. Show is at nine thirty the Brock yes so many good things from the first couple of weeks of the season one kind of glaring weakness that stands out and I'm just so confused about what what the heck is going on with this offensive line this was supposed to be strength of theirs. It's not not right now. Surviving it they found a way in this game two to essentially actually rendered their offensive line moot by throwing quickly and you mentioned Russell with his one point eight nine seconds per throw which is as little as anyone's had in a couple couple of seasons but that was out of necessity because the right side of their offensive line can't figure out a TA game. Yeah what is going on with the group that last year was very much improved. This cheer has all the same people. Mikey potty has not been the problem at left guard nor was nor was posted last week what has happened however feddie and fluker taking this huge step well. I think for both of those guys there is strength to their game but there's legitimate weaknesses right. I mean there's a reason that the seahawks didn't pick up the fifth year option for petty and I don't know based on the first couple of weeks here. I don't think you sit there and go yeah. That's a mistaker boy. We got signed him. During the year two thousand Seventeen Germain effecting what's happened. Lucre is a guy that was a free agent again been free agent a bunch of different times in his career. I think most people look at and say okay. Here's a year and a couple. Million Million Bucks like you know you're capable guy competent but there is some challenges to your game three hundred and fifty pounds. The movements and stunts and processing is big as he is. Those are areas of vulnerability so I think both of those guys Mike. I don't think this is a total shock. FEDDIE got better over the of course that's fine. You can say that you're right. I understand that those guys are always going to have some problems in pass blocking fine two things though one every time the the the tackle in the end swap spots confused yeah every time that can't happen can't happen man. It's Klay five years in the League and what's This for Fluke doc seven or so yes. It should not happen as often as it does. That's one number two you deal with some of that because they're big road-graders. I haven't seen the big holes. I haven't seen them road road grading. Where's that part of the game you can talk to me about all right. I understand their strengths and weaknesses but I don't understand why you've got to a point. I guess just from football football perspective. you know kind of just an XS knows I would say and obviously I think big rain some other guys go even further detail but I look at it this way. Mike your opponents. It's not lining up in letting you attack them hit them. Both of your opponents have said what both of your opponents had said you know. We're going to get into five down defensive lineman. We're going to slant. We're GONNA move to Pittsburgh. I got in a three down and they're bringing backers and safeties and nickel defenders. Were not going to just line up and let you make a box count and say okay. Here's the double team to the second level and think that we can just line up equally. Go Yeah Yeah. We'll we'll be just fine. Both of them have used a lot of blur. They've thrown a lot of different color. There've you've been a lot of stunts. There've been a lot of movement in. That's what you've gotTa do against a big physical. Oh Line then I will propose an idea that we've talked about before that is a little harebrained brain and a lot of traditional football. People don't like it but as the game is rapidly changing. I think this needs to be another place teams. Look at why do you play the same five down on Lineman on every play. Why aren't those positions rotating in the same way running backs and wide receivers and every other position on the team does why are those same five guys who have as you just said specific trade offs strengths and weaknesses and you often have other guys on your team who have different strengths and weaknesses. Why aren't they rotating through who and giving different looks on the offensive line whether it's a running group and a passing group and before you come in with Wolf Group. Everybody knows they're going to run just because it's the running group doesn't mean mean they have to run it just means they're better prepared to run what happens if you're looking to pass protect and you say you know what get fluker out of there for two minute drill and get. Ethan pawsox basic back in their if they have to run they can but if he's better at pass blocking than Dj fluker why sit him on the bench during those couple of minutes well because the chemistry is that important I just I'm sorry I don't I don't I think it makes too much sense and I'm shocked that a team hasn't try one. US honestly coach about it before he's been tempted and he thought he could to do it and they've tried to do that in the past and they did it was subpar pieces. Whatever it is an enormous tail number one number two continuity matters number three there should should be answers in your run game and I know that that's probably the next conversation is okay if they're gonNA do all of this blur and all of that. What do you do in the run game. You gotta just run downhill like instead instead of getting the gun and I run the hat knows I in nineteen and maybe they're not expecting running from downhills Bob but they pulled a couple of guys from the left or the right and Carson came barreling down go for years. I love the way they ran read option and they get into it with Marchand. Go all right there off to the races. The read option so effective. I still think it's ineffective. Play I just I'm not sure that it is the best the best play call for either Carson or specialty penny or maybe even the guys up front just WanNa Kinda lineup and you know just down block and not necessarily getting zone situation where stunts or blitzes or they're thinking or they can just run some power that can run my so. Maybe put the full back on the field. I think all things is it you sort through man. It's all this game of adjustments. Baseball is not the only game of adjustments per at bat poor for young players for pitchers and you know so our offensive coordinator so our quarterbacks you know that that zone read you know it comes off of that Michael. RPO right so we're willing to live with a little zone read and maybe they get us here but you know we get we get to then pull the ball and throw the slant right behind. You know then we get. We could throw a little bubble to a one on one and we get a block and we get a big place. There's a constant I think back and forth of course none of it matter of Germania. Fatty is holding on every play and jumping off sides and everything else that stuff just it has to stop salt. That's ridiculous. We're going to substitute are pass blocking offensive linemen minute run plays or past please..
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"I asked you and I said yes. Did you say you settle remember. You're going to get back to me and then you chance on the twelfth you want another. I can't now you can still I cannot now. I'm Michael have a interview with Michael Gallup this afternoon yesterday. I just really just realized today is the twelfth. Do you asked me about this game and I said yes.

Yeah just just text boomer if you want him to reply to you almost over boom twenty seven and a half minutes and the day is done I gotTa make it up career. Did you start your cornhole. E get no the twenty-third. Take me adult cornhole yeah yeah man. We're sold out whereas you WANNA team yeah well. Where is it. It'll be in keyboard new right over Red Bank on Friday. That's right. That's the exit that is if you get off one seven number thirty five. Oh I see okay seventeen hundred seventeen right exit one seventy six further on Friday nine. I'm going to go Friday yeah of course my man genetic down there and Gar Monty and everything's GonNa be great Friday night but for the Foundation Eddie difference coming here and slap you around what once would you I would uh-huh I'm afraid that if a hit them on break and then he'll go run in value or break. I don't think you'll break Eddie. Yeah just punch him in the stomach won't break. That won't long. I brought to you by the Ray Catena Auto Group schedule an appointment today to Raycatena Service First Class Service at affordable prices. You're going doing today to citi field. Yeah and you're calling it stroman day a bunch of stuff all right well. Let's down spot Stroman Day Hooky Day Kolat of a work day. Whatever let's go last night. Was Home Run night. Here is McNeil. Does he go first ball fastball hunting the pitch he does. He launches that deep to right towards super deck there it goes one. Hattie alike that Jeff Beck deal gets the first pitch fastball at shoots it very very close to where he did. This already the second almost e spanked he did almost nine hundred worth of home runs yeah he hits. It's a monster shots. Pop Does Bat and the Squirrel Squirrel in the mets nine nothing over the diamondbacks. All Good Todd Frazier homered twice twice as well. Brandon Nimmo homered Stephen Matt's really settled down after a shaky second inning. He went six scoreless. Jerry's familiar even with a scoreless inning in relief about that and the mets I get up like nine. Nothing yes small steps four and it was a scoreless. INNING was a low low leverage situation. It's still they trail Chicago and Milwaukee by two games now for the second wildcard. They turn right back around today. Go for the four-game sweep. Now I could the bad guy and in the past I probably would have but I do like making here's one of his miss speaks when he talks about them having to come back and play the mets could left it like this. You know they have to go to bed tonight. In Wake up early complaints tomorrow which is not tough right. He misspoke spoke to go to bed tonight in wake up early and complaints tomorrow which is tough a tough thing to do. Share regime take a left it like that and just played the rest of it and we're GonNa roll over tomorrow yeah. I'm here was Stephen Mazzi. He loves doing this team competes day after day. Don't let the past effectives too much. You know well. We just keep going keep working and that's the bottom line. That's all we can control is what we do moving forward and I think as a group doing mets now seventy five and seventy. You had eighty eighty six correct. Yeah I eighty seven eighty eight yeah so at this point. They've got what seventeen games left. Eighteen seventeen seventy go to get to eighty yeah. I don't know eleven and six you does it i. I hope so I checked out I could tell by your yes okay. here was Peter Lonzo. This was another part of the story obviously nine eleven he had the spiked created to remember and he gave them to his teammates. I JUST WANNA show recognition to all the people who are just heroes just ordinary people. Oh that just felt a sense of urgency an admirable call of duty so this is for all those people who lost their lives and all those people that did so much was grateful at all his teammates wore them. He did not get approval from the League. I guess he tried to get approval for a hat. They said no so he went ahead and made the cleats himself. Elsa pretty cool mentioned them being to out. That's because the cubs lost to the padres four nothing in the brewers tied with the cubs now after they beat the marlins seven to five the Yankees didn't get to play them in the Tigers. Got Rained out so you'll get two today. Jay Happened the first game I won ten cease about the old pitch the second game coverage on the fan at twelve thirty Aaron Hicks remains out what the U. C. L. Tear does not look like he'll be back this year or for the postseason the Yankees half game ahead of the Astros now for the best record in baseball because Houston lost to Oakland five to three last night also in terms of the best record in baseball. The dodgers are ninety four and fifty three. They lost the orioles seven three last night. Also the braves beat phillies three to one you got the nationals beating the twins six two two and the Rangers snap Tampa six game winning streak with a ten nine win. Nfl Week to open tonight panthers Thursday and Box Westwood. One's coverage will be on the fan later tonight. Here's Cam Newton the season the game all this stuff. He says falls on his shoulders need to be a better quarterback for this for this for this and hopefully after I kind of feel the voicing on rush the Rustiness I can get a bowl yeah well. I don't know what all that means. All I know is that nobody does Bruce. Arians better get involved. You know he was hired to fix this kid and start the first game at home against San Francisco seeing that was Cam Newton's laws about James. I'm sorry but James Winston needs to get his act together and he is a guy that they hired. Bruce Arians of the fix him and by his virtue of his performance last week in San Francisco at home three turnovers three interceptions. He's just a machine turnover machine right so Jimmy Garoppolo played horribly. They still figure out a way to win. I like was he hired right like half the NFL to come and work on this coaching staff and it's like a you know. He's a big guy to give people a chance and all that other stuff but you know if he really wants to stay there. He's you gotta fix. This kid. Well here is ending because they got a huge question mark about him moving forward. This is him moving forward after one. Do we LE- so so every opponent. There's a new opponent and we approaching that with the same objective s to win so we gotta go out there and play a great clean game to beat disguised. His game was awful terrible but par for the course and really what it comes down to. It's not it's not really physical. It's like the decisions he's making and that's what you hire. Bruce Arians to do is to get him out of making bad decisions but I don't even know if Bruce Arians is involved with the head coach but I I think it's Bryant Byron left which is sure. I'm sure Bruce Arena's involved if they hard him to fix this kid and that's his this performance on week one. I'd be walking into his office timeout coach. You're the quarterback whisperer. What are you doing with James. Five touchdowns tonight and then five interceptions options next week and then it's just back and forth going to relax great and then they'll tantalize you and you think he's the guy and then all of a sudden. There's three weeks straight where they can't win a gaming turn the ball over seven times. I remember I asked you was a couple of weeks ago about seven or eight quarterbacks that who would you want if one of these guys became available because the teams they are playing on have have to make decisions about your futures. He happened to be one of those players. No way no way no how one player who did look completely different to me this past Sunday was Andy Dalton Cincinnati. He threw for a career high over four hundred fifteen yards tough spot on the road at Seattle exceptionally well and I'll tell you Zack Taylor called an aggressive game and that's exactly what I was hoping would happen for him because he'd been playing under a defensive head coach for the previous nine years now. Dak Jack Prescott threw for over four hundred yards came against the giants no secondary here's the clip of the cowboy video of Randall Cobb talking about the giant secondary. They all lost in the backfield. You can hear it and if you watch it. You can totally see it. Here's Pat Shurmur who basically discuss the secondary issue. I think it all happens you know there's some pre-snap things in terms of alignment mm-hmm it right and then post nap obviously recognizing the route combinations and getting where you need to be so combination giants bills on the pass rush and no pass rush they did. TJ Jones and they put cory. Martin and I are with a knee injury Monday night. Dak Prescott get hit at all last week. No and there's I mean maybe once there's guys up patted him on the ASS. Feel there is a clip in that video where Jason Garrett goes over and says pockets clean clean. They're not touching you. Just stay in the pocket and he's got it. He might get hit once. Maybe it wasn't a whole hell of a lot. I mean when he ran. He had a couple of scramble scrambles. He wasn't sacked and if he ran out of the pocket. I don't remember it being because some defensive linemen got off his block walk someone figure out who the Best College Defensive Player in College football is and then we'll know who's going to be on the giants next year and the second overall pick only to Miami who's GonNa take two and then we'll know then. It's the guy we can focus on very very right. Here is up in New England. You had to Antonio Brown on the practice field a lot going on there with bill ballot. Check as you can imagine he really didn't want to discuss this situation though Antonio and as a representative of made statements so I'm not gonNA be the expanding on any of those They're what they are. We've looked into the situation. We're taking very seriously and then at the end they kept asking I mean I'm done okay anything else on Miami. They had one more by now that he said any eighteen position at about the I just think that question actually so that's GonNa go swimmingly up there as you engine as more and more o.`Neil Brown just brings brings awaken in tenseness and anxiety and everything around that no coach really wants to deal with just be interesting to see whether or not they play him this week not because of the off the field stuff on the field stuff because Tom Brady basically said look we gotta get the Workman and we are precise in what we do and he's gotta learn how to do that.

"dak jack prescott" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Done. The cowboys can finally get to work and i don't know how big a distraction. This has been in the locker room but but it'll be nice not hearing about this anymore in the media. The cowboys are going to be good <hes>. I don't know how much zeke plays on sundays. I told you yesterday a source told me prior party. Yesterday's show zeke will be in the lineup in uniform with dallas but he didn't have any other details there. They finally got that deal done late last night eight or early this morning. Jerry jones prioritized him over other key players. He has to win now. He wants to win. Now needs to win now and zeke elliott it is the key to that dallas has more pieces in place than it's had any other time. Since the jimmy johnson era that offensive line could be the best in football should dominate. They got depth that wide receiver they got. Maybe the best linebacking jewel in the n._f._l. Jalen edwards enlightened vander ash elliott makes everybody better certainly the offense. You'll make dak jack prescott better. You're going to have to be accountable for play action pass and then the defense because if you have those sustainable drives you keep the defense off the field but the cowboys i'm bullish on this year. Are they a super bowl team. Yes will they get there well. I think there's a lot of questions still to be answered with this team. You got got a new offensive coordinator and kelly moore the former quarterback and what kind of offense is he going to bring my source told me yesterday you're gonna see dak prescott throw the ball down the field more than he has in recent years that they wanna take advantage of their wide receiver certainly amari cooper and they want to be able to stretch stretch that defense a little bit more now that used to be the strategy against dak prescott. Was you wanted him to throw the ball down the field. You wanted him to throw it thirty five or forty times. I think that kellen moore is going to have him pre snap. There's going to be a lot of movement there. I think it's going to be a little more sophisticated than it has been yeah paulie so the cowboys are going to switch to a passing offense after signing the most expensive running back in n._f._l. History they're going to throw deeper okay. I don't think they're gonna throw more often. They're gonna throw deeper more incompletion more third down. This is what i wanna know now. The cowboys have signed four players to three hundred thirteen million dollars of value. Oh you in the contracts now. That's in the last five months. One hundred and eighty five of the three hundred thirteen is guaranteed demarcus lawrence five years one. Oh five zeeks six six years ninety jalen smith six years sixty eight la lyle collins five years fifty million. What i'd love to know is where did zeke elliot in his side start. And where did the cowboys start with this negotiation. I said all along. I thought jerry jones. This is a different jerry jones than jerry from from the nineties jerry's on the clock he knows this. He wants to win a super bowl. Life's clock is under and he he wants to be see the owner g._m. Of the team that wins the super bowl again because i think we all look back and say couldn't jerry and jimmy of gotten along a little bit longer. Are you know it's like shaq and kobe couldn't have gotten along a little bit better a little bit longer and maybe you would have won more titles. It's been a long time since the cowboys had been truly relevant donovan as a great team. They've been relevant because they're the cowboys now. We're looking at them now. You're in a tough decision with the eagles in the eagles probably the favorites to go to the super bowl but i like what dallas has we talked about. You know you roll the dice here because the cowboys could easily go three and one in those first four games. Maybe they go go for no then. You've taken away a little bit more leverage from ezekiel elliott. He came back from kabo and negotiating in good faith to say i'm coming back. Let's let's talk. Let's get a deal done but i don't know where he started in where the cowboys started and how you got to this number here do i think he's worth it on the field absolutely absolutely off the field. Okay there have been moments. There have been incidents. I mean we're not talking about something. That's terrible <hes> we're we're talking about incidents moments and i think that the cowboys whether they put language in there or not to protect him a lot of people are looking at this is basically a three year deal but when when you draft a running back in the top five you're setting yourself up for this moment here. The cowboys can't be surprised because this is going to happen to the giants with saquon saquon barkley. I don't know carolina panthers with christian mccaffrey if you're taking a running back that high you're going to pay him if he does what he supposed to do. And that's what you have you either have a team that says we don't wanna take a running back that high. Let's take our chances trying to find somebody in the second or third around but if you take somebody up top like jacksonville saddled with leonard fournette. They took him high and basically got what you're going to get out of him. They're not gonna to pay him after this contract but zeke you drafted him. He lived up to what you wanted him to do now. Did he wants you to pay him early. Yes he did but maybe it's a team friendly deal here but you can't bail. Let's say you buy a car. Let's say you buy a ferrari and you know in five years. You gotta rebuild the engine going to cost you fifty thousand dollars. Now you still may buy that car and go all right wait for that. I'll take my chances and then five years then you ago. <hes> you gotta rebuild that engine there. You can't go oh. I'm surprised i gotta rebuild that thing. You're told that now the giants know that now with saquon barkley arkley you're going to have to re. You're gonna pay for a new engine and that engine is saquon barkley. If barclay lives up to his rookie contract contract he's going to be asking for more money than zeke elliot and he'll be the highest paid running back in the game. We had other contracts jared goff quietly. You know the rams quietly in the off season. They extended sean mcveigh and they extended jared goff jared goff now. The highest paid player in the n._f._l. I would've waited another year and just to see how those two mash and and you know roll the dice on this but this is both sides saying okay. Let's let's sort of meet halfway and take a chance on this but why is it. Jared goff deserves more than russell wilson. Why is he yeah. He deserved more. That's yeah no. You're not you're looking at when you know ruining in the press box. Why is it the jared goff just because he's next man up is going to make more yes mclovin. He's six four russell so wilson five eleven. What are you talking about rather. Have i six four dan. No you wouldn't your shortest. You're anti short people but it's just i don't you always say it's next guy up. It's not that this guy is not better than the last guy up but that's how it always works like matt. Ryan will be the guy and then it'd be era. Matt ryan was never better than air rogers but he got a huge aaron. Rodgers is now a bargain. I think already yes. He is their point though where that sort of course corrects itself whereas not always the next man aw jameis winston marcus mario dagger those two. I think are going to be free agents when when they're deal comes. It's like exciter cut yeah. I don't think anybody's saying hey we gotta. We gotta get that deal done with james winston. Yes votes based off. This math is scale quarterbacks. If if mitchell trubisky mitch is i call him has a good year in chicago he could be the highest paid quarterback in n._f._l. History in twelve months based on the progression and then mahomes is yeah wow and i you know when we started talking about bryce harper's deal. I said you know he could probably be a four hundred million dollar. You know when it's all done done is contract could be worth four hundred million. Mike trout four hundred million patrick. Mahomes is probably going to be two hundred million dollars. I don't know how much guaranteed but probably early one thirty one forty guaranteed and he's going to be two hundred million dollars. Albert breer tweeted this. The cowboys will almost certainly be able to walk away from the zeke deal after three years so if he's the same guy in twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty two thousand twenty one. It's a win for the team after that. It's basically a series of team options and you know how. I feel about running backs. I if i have a running back in the first round i'm gonna use you up for five years and then i'm gonna say thank you some nice parting gifts because it feels like if i'm giving you three hundred touches then eventually you only have so many carries in your body unless you're frank gore but you only only have so many carries in your body and i want to get the best out of you. The best out of you is to use u. N. z. three down back very few of them. He's he's a three down back. Great blocker catch the ball and of course he can run the football but dallas with that offense that offensive line if that offensive line is healthy you you know in the.

"Right. Let's get back to the Dallas cowboys now by now. We know they're conundrum. They have three offensive stars with the desire to pay just two of them this year. It's a simple math problem but a complicated life problem for Steven Jones Jones in media yesterday day that Deck Mari and Zeke are all talented same. We've got three really good football players that we're dealing with. Keep in mind none of the three half super bowl ring so brian the cowboys big three just a little overrated. I don't think they're overrated. I think they're actually really good and sneakily. I think they have a good the chance of winning the N._F._C. East and that's taken a lot from the Philadelphia Eagles. We have a stack roster. I think when you talk about the N._F._C. East you're talking about a team that can run the football and play good defense offense to me. That's the recipe for success especially in the playoffs with all three then have all through all three of them have to have to be there now. When you compare the big three across the league eighty you're talking about mahomes? You're talking about hill and Williams they don't compare to them you talking about Aaron Rodgers Damian Williams and Davante Adams. They don't compare to them. You're talking about Tom Brady cattleman and Sony they don't compare it to them because those football teams score the football thirty plus points a game. The cowboys are twenty in the low twenty points as per game because they're winning team. They WANNA play great defense to run the football so it's hard to compare them to those high scoring football team so you think we'll see difference though with Keller Moore's the office coordinator there's talk about. He's GonNa let Dak air it out more. They got more motion before the snap right like do do you think they'll open it up and be more productive active off. I think they will open it up but you have to give the ball to your best player and he's behind the quarterback. That's Ezekiel Elliott when he gets in camp. He's the best player he's going to get another season season three hundred plus touches. He's going to have another season. He's GonNa catch sixty plus balls. He had seventy seven last year. He's a very good receiver. Obviously he's a great running back you. You have to give that man. The ball offense changes very much. Here's what I think I think they're underrated all right now. I'm not saying they're the best big three in the League but look Dak Jack Prescott the athletic just did their story where they pull fifty five executives and coaches that press cots ranked seventeenth among quarterbacks a tier three quarterback back C._B._S..

"It's just it's an incredibly dependent position and I. This thing gets so complicated. Because you have national national media that is all over Zeke saying that he is the one that's carrying this team and no metric doc that you can look at that you can calculate shows that passing efficiency is what wins games in the N._F._L. Now what makes this difficult is that Zeke absolutely gives you the best chance to win a super bowl but that's if you you use him correctly and so the situation overall is incredibly complicated and I. I really don't know how all of this is. GonNa play out. I I really don't with with all the different things that we're hearing from different people. Everybody's connected in one one way or another. The you know the people that are saying Oh. They're getting closer. Those that are saying oh nothing's happening. Everybody's connected and everybody. Everybody is hearing different things. I think it's so easy nowadays to to get things wrong and to get burnt in media when you're in that that realm and that's why for the most part. I liked to stay out of it. I like to assume that I don't have a clue. What's going on even if untold I'm told something because I just don't trust it so this situation I I don't? I don't really really see a a good ending to it. I just I don't not after not after next year. You said something a few moments ago. You said that the passing efficiency is what wins games in the N._F._L. Totally agree and that's a situation at the cowboys are dealing with us well what their quarterback that Dak Jack Prescott. It's entering a contract year there. I would imagine that after the winced deals done that they do want to get back done as soon as possible they they do not that that would be the deal if you know he's your guy you see the ones in losses you see the the numbers over the first three years you see that he's been really good at times and he's been pretty bad times the pretty bad at times. I think you can look at it and understand why when Tyron Smith was out when he was out in the receiving core was just a mess <hes> but when things were together and I don't think there were always perfect but when they were when they were above average offense align wide receiver core the quarterback has has been pretty pretty darn good in my opinion and I think that that's that's something they're looking at now and trying to get Dak Prescott done as soon as possible that that number is it's going to be somewhere close to if not over that thirty million mark per year Carson Wentz what did Carson we get thirty four. I'm trying to think of thought my head. I think he got thirty four four per year and I think that they're saying the DAX in that thirty two thirty two range and that's something that I could see getting done here in the next few weeks. That's that's just Kinda. What what the time line has been for quarterbacks entering that contract year that no through the team's franchise quarterback they they normally try to get those guys done before the the week one before the training camp and the cowboys only have a few weeks before they're. They're looking preparing for week one at the giants so wanted to give you that same question is is. When do you think the Stack Prescott deal gets done a pretty sure. You would say that you'd think it does get done so I want to ask you first off. If you don't why don't you you think you will get done and then two if you do which I think you will. When do you think that gets done so I think it's GonNa get done in I if they wait wait until after this season they could get burnt because if we see this different offense that we keep hearing about and I'm sure that we'll get into that offense in depth later. Maybe not today but but next time we're on he's going to play better. His numbers are going to be better. He's going to look better and then it's going to be too late and you're GONNA end up having to pay him thirty five million dollars a year..
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"In for Geo and I don't know if you follow my twitter feed or not either one of you guys because you guys are so focused on yourselves and your podcasts and your postgame stuff as opposed to the real stuff that we do here every day. I saw it so you know yesterday. Did you see you didn't see it then. I don't usually look at twitter after I leave the radio. That's good Jerry I just had a lot of people engaged had a lot of people writing to me saying. Can you go help boomer. I needed some help yesterday. So I did see this all right so before Thanksgiving I I hurt my left knee so I had to go through all this physical therapy and everything between Thanksgiving and Christmas like a plan hockey game Christmas and then I hurt my right right me right after my daughter's wedding from dancing and playing hockey and golf and softball everything else I've been going to physical therapy and everything in my phone has been acting up and I don't know what what the Hell's going on so I decided to Westfield World Trade Center down here now. This is a it is a massive place and it is awesome place. It's a it's the way they built this this Westfield World Trade Center Mall Right there in the shadow of <hes> the Freedom Tower and everything else in the World Trade Center memorial and and all that other stuff is just phenomenal. It's tied into the Jersey Transit and everything so I decided I'm going to go to the apple store over there. I walk in the Apple Store and I'm like I'm just overwhelmed the size it's the amount of people and people standing around and looking at devices and I'm like okay. Can I get an apple associate the hell do you do you approach it apple associate that they approach you how do you how do you interact. I've never really done this before so I did.

Is there something wrong with this phone on all this other stuff and how was really overwhelmed by the whole experience and plus you have all the tourists in there and everything and everybody's picking up phones and there's probably germs everywhere you know and I don't WanNa touch phones and finally finally a very nice lady came over to marijuana killed me is probably after about fifteen minutes standing there just looking at people wondering whether or not somebody's GonNa come to me. I don't know if you flag them down. What do you know what the protocol take a number or something or there's a waiting for but I've done what you did?

Can Somebody help me so finally she she found me. She got this Guy Eli for for me as a local kid from the Bronx and great kid and he took me through the whole thing ended up selling the phone of course but made the whole thing kind go away like you know once you finally run into one of these kids and they're into it and they they know the product and all that other stuff they take the edge off if you will well there's no calendar schedule. I think the one in freehold malls jewel of down that way now I'm perjuring make appointments and that's how you know when you want them.

I'm thinking I gotta go to print street reading Soho and they're like none and others around here at Westfield World Trade Center Mike at a mall. That's a mall that's dangerous. You can walk in there. That's going to be a thousand people. POLUNIN is parking lot. There's no parking like just give me but anyway yes. I walked in there and they're literally were probably. I don't know three hundred people in their play. It's it's the place to go. I know when you go into a verizon play variety store. There's someone greeting. There's a greeter that does take your name down on the put you on the waiting list and they tell you who your sales reps. It helps. I Know House got that thing with the <hes> with the Delis. There's always chaos and you never know who gets to go very. I didn't know how to like work it out. I don't know why the apple store is always packed. You know what's in their iphones IPADS. Mac Computers People are walking around like they're shopping and let you know what the devices are already killing time. Yeah I think so someone go like the seven different by you know devices. You're not sure about like whether or not you need like a Belkin accessory or need some other kind of charging adapter or some other crap that you know. They're trying to sell you but I will all say that Eli did a hell of a job. Did Eli know who you are had no idea really because he seemed like always probably twenty. I sure so I would say he's twenty eight okay and he had no the idea he was the basketball player in high school. It was telling me how he was dean up Kemba Walker back in the day. How about that now Kemba Walker making one hundred million dollars these were going to snapped? He's doing wonderful but he actually was a really nice kid so I was a kid. He's a he's a young man. Here's Rocco Newark with boomer and Jerry on the fan and C._B._S.. Sports what's up Rocco. Oh Hey what's going on guys. Hey Rocco what's happening with you boomer. What's up all right man ever since well ever since carton left yeah and Jerry Jerry was interviewing for the pouch yeah never interviewed for Rocco gets a damn facts tax rates? You been a little snippy with boomer since you are like that I'm telling on you. I listened to the radio. Almost true and cotton was two years old on wait. Hold on one car was there. You'll like a little boy in the corner yesingepov everybody. How could you get on there? Could you get on the microphone and please help me with this. I'm not I'm not saying anything. No Jerry was a battler as long as as I've known him on the air but but I think Rocco is right what car no you're Rocco. You're wrong dude the wrong the greatest Jerry ranch that we have were from then him he's screaming at cramped cotton used to put him down and needs to go in the little corner and nobody puts baby in that's true but I do think that there are times where you do get a little snippy. Be with me but I understand. I don't think it's snippy if I disagree. Why is that considered snippy now? It's not that you can disagree. It's how you disagree. People like in Politics Tech's they disagree right right. I think the political arena now is so <hes> police gusting and yeah yeah and it's it's toxic. It's because of how people are disagreeing not that they disagree. We all know that they disagree but it's how you basically tell somebody. Look look I mean that's it's your voice inflection. It's the words as you use the intensity and what you deliver your argument. That kind of my voice inflections no good sometimes. I'm not saying all the time but sometimes yeah and I I understand why people because I do get a lot of that. No you don't no one ever says anything to you about that. That's not true about you. Come and snipping at me snippet anybody. You're a snip. Yes you are not hit. snippy was as sleep. I think when when I heard this sworn I was like Oh God but I've been fine when I disagree with a point I can either do one of two things I consider and say okay or I can disagree with you and if I think you're wrong. I'm going to say you're wrong boomer. You're wrong. You said that it's Mike Leave al out of this. was that sippy just now I don't think so. Do you think I'm snippy towards boomer. No I mean that's just how you if you disagree somebody. You just put it out there all right so your fleet is an Arp your north and so you have agreements I get it. I understand I but I hear differently. It's how I take what you say and how some of the listeners out there take but you're wrong this up to say in all right. Here's Tim in piscataway with boomer and the snip. What's up tim trump guys two things <hes> before it gets to a cowboys question <hes> you got on that fantasy football and the losers before you have to you have to have a the penalty you have to enforce it and it has got to be something something fun and serious in my league? We got a sixteen team league <hes> auction. It takes all all day <hes> eight to ten hours. The winner gets a trophy that looks like the Stanley Cup and the loser gets a toilet bowl and the following the loser at Ah next year's draft has to drink a six pack in the first dollar to draft out of the toilet bowl or just in general just in general out of the football. I watch cowboys question. I think he's GonNa get paid like a top. Five quarterback quarterback and I don't think he should think they have to go that high just because contracts he's not rogers. He's not love. He's not he's. What do you think I mean? We'll the Tim we see. We see this in the N._B._A.. Two guys that are not Max players get maxed deals because it's available almost like it's a right of passage and it shouldn't be Dak.. Jack Prescott is a good N._F._l.. quarterback another some that will say he's even better than you think. Here's what I know I watch him. I think he's good. I don't think he's a that next level. You mentioned Aaron Rodgers. He's not there. He's a good quarterback and on a good team. He'll make good plays and they'll win but I don't necessarily believe achieved the cowboys can win games simply because of Dak Prescott were a team like the packers can win game simply because of Aaron Rodgers surrounding cast lesson Rochman county less what's happening. Hey Boom how you doing. I'm doing great. How are you doing this? I am shocked. I really sucked all the years listen to you. I would have assumed that you're with somebody shopping point. I don't have a little ass. I have a big S.. Secondly <hes> No. I I do my own shop. What do you think I'm going to send in turns out to go? Take Care of stock for me to tell you bet your fill. Somebody definitely definitely a guy that likes to go to the genius bar. That's for sure but less heating recognized that the apple store. It's the perfect place for the whole thing. We've got a bunch of geeks running around. I didn't think of it that way. I just thought it was New York City. You know you never know where people come from when you said he was a twenty eight year old in the Bronx maybe he would've known that he was a basketball player and I I did ask him. I said you know who's your favorite team and all this other stuff. You know what I mean Nikai. He loved the Knicks and everything I was Jason and Queens Jason what's happening. Hey Boom you know I'm listening to you and you always complaining about millennials and we're snowflakes. They'll be things yes jerry degrees with view and right away. He's sipping your boom okay well. I hear what you're saying. Jason don't compare me. Don't do compare me to a snowflake he just he did place. That's exactly that the ultimate insult snowflake Jason.
"dak jack prescott" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Whenever we get a great running back. It's as if we forget the offensive line. Can we acknowledge that Zeke in his first three years in the N._F._l.. Dallas has had the best offensive line in the N._F._l.. In those three years we're not gonNA acknowledged that DeMarco Murray with this offensive line line it was younger but it was still emerging as a force had eighteen hundred yards and thirteen touchdowns. How was DEMARCO Murray without this cowboy offensive line Zeke's numbers last year by the way dropped his yards per game dropped? His touchdowns dropped why why because the cowboys had injuries on the offensive line Travis Frederick didn't play supposed to play this year Tyron Smith was not one hundred percent so the offensive line last year for the first time the last couple years they started getting old and injured and his numbers went down and as the offensive line is age they have more injuries Zeke Lou you start to see a little erosion by the way Zeke talented really talented. Maybe the best running back I'm not denying that but as Dak Jack Prescott the quarterback grows and matures he'll become less reliant on him. That's also what happened with Russell Wilson marshawn Lynch Russell dependent on him for a couple of years marshawn lynch left and Russell blossomed by the way last last year at the beginning of the season Todd Gurley was healthy. We were having arguments on this show and I'm sure it was another debate shows Zeke or Todd Gurley who's better and it was kind of Split. It was kind of fifty fifty thing and like the cowboys. The Rams have a young quarterback jared goff who has not had a ceiling and many of you say oh come on he's over rated. girly makes Goff girly got hurt but because the rams have a very good offensive line fine they found C.. J. Anderson Human Bowling Ball and they got to the Super Bowl without Todd Gurley why because Jared Goff became less reliant on Todd Gurley as he's age which Dak will do. I'm not saying Dacca's Jared Goff if I don't think he's that talented but they're close at this point. They're close so you got all these things. If a team's offensive line is the elite let's take the Pittsburgh steelers then you can lose a great running back. Lady and Bell leads James James Connor last year in twelve thirteen games had twelve touchdowns by the way. I'll give you an example the N._F._l.. Named Marlin Mac he's running back. He was a fourth round pick by the colts. You never talked about him. Then last year the colts went out and drafted the two offensive linemen and they were both home runs the colts. Now don't have the best offensive line and football but it's the best young offensive line will. What do you know Marlin Mac last year in twelve games almost got a thousand yards did Marlon get better not offensive zip lining? Did it's amazing to me that we acknowledged the importance of offensive lines all throughout football. It's really the key to New England's dynasty. It's not just that bill. Belichick is brilliant and Tom Brady's great. Tom Doesn't get hit. Thomas has time by the way in that super bowl loss to the eagles. What was it that lost it for the Patriots? Tom Got hit and fumbled the losses to the giants in the Super Bowl. What lost it? Tom Brady faced pressure from the giants defensive front. Even in Tom Brady is vulnerable to an offensive line that gets overwhelmed if you go to the Super Bowl against Atlanta Tom Brady had a horrible first half the Falcons and often. Tom Brady had a great fourth quarter. What happened the Falcons defensive line was gassed and the Patriots offensive line dominated? We don't acknowledge the offensive line of the cowboys in any of Zeke's greatness.
