No Hype for 2021 Cowboys without Dak
"News this week is on the way boys hype video that came out after the Superbowl and it's like any other video. It's Cool at times corny at times and probably doesn't need to exist. But if you missed it, you didn't miss much. Here's just a sampling of the audio from it to start a team built on tradition that tradition lasted tenacity in our fiber has that means ignore the critics embrace the love but most importantly in order to win we have to work. Let's go. Okay and you know, you see various highlights of the Cowboys and I mean, it's corny right kids start school like cool nice history trophies Emmitt Smith Michael Irvin cool, then it's like we got a work I just in sports. I mean Don't tell you what the labor show me the baby, you know, I don't care that you're like everybody's working. Everybody's working. Everybody's trying to get better. Right the way you show that is on the field now I get it try to create content and make videos MOBA. It's just corny. The big issue is Dak Prescott it the protectors Dak Prescott is not in the video. It says next season starts now hashtag Dallas Cowboys hashtag Kelly station blah blah blah blah. There's no Dak Prescott. So you're telling me you're you made a hype video for the 2021 season and it does include your quarterback. There's no hype for a season without a quarterback. Let's just be clear there. No hype for season without a quarterback. So there's really no video. No, hype no nothing even have a quarterback. So like, you know, I mean some people have taken this to be like, oh contract negotiations Pub song Bad Blood, you know Derek Eagleton who runs the Cowboys be Department. You know he tweeted about it. He says this was simply an oversight that should have been caught and corrected by us. Anyone who's making it seem like Cowboys decision-makers use social media videos to make statements doesn't understand or take the time to understand how it works. Trust me. There's no story here, which I mean that's I get it and it makes sense but it also doesn't make sense. It just makes us sense. It makes no sense that. They made a High video and a bunch of people watched it all work for the Dallas Cowboys and nobody was like, you know, there's I hate to be the this guy but I don't see number four in there at home. He's pretty visible player very much the news had an injury this year. I mean, maybe they just pulled, you know, maybe they're trying to pull highlights in the end of the season. I don't I mean I'm not suggesting. Like that, this is a shot at Dak or it's a you know, it's it's a it's on contract negotiations. I just don't think this could be an oversight. Like I don't know how else to say it. I don't think it it's I just I don't know. It's just a it's not a set like I get that it's not vindictive and it's not I I totally think that that's true. I just don't understand. How it's possible that you could work for the Dallas Cowboys and watch that and there's lots of people that had to watch that video before it's made public and be like, there's no Dak in there. Somebody had to say something. I'm up buying. Nobody said anything. So and if you can't Here's a thought. Let's say we can he's under contract. He's not he's out of the country with the Cowboys. So we can't we can't include him that might be the reason it's perfect. Probably the reason the don't do a home video

Making some you know some obvious news in a bit of surprise news the dallas cowboys announcing that defensive coordinator. Mike nolan defensive. Line coach jim. Tom soula have been let go. Have been whatever you wanna call it fire to buy the team. They will not be back in two thousand and twenty one. Mike nolan obviously oversaw. One of the worst defenses to ever live ever played in the nfl. And so we'd heard. Rumblings obviously had been reported different instances over kind of the last month that it was likely he was not going to be back although mike nolan. If you're somehow unaware is is rather chummy with mike mccarthy dallas cowboys head coach mike mccarthy they go way back in case. You forgot mike. Nolan was the head coach of the san francisco. Forty niners in two thousand and five and mike mccarthy offensive corner at the time that was of course the year. The forty niners took alex smith with a number one overall pick. Ironically the quarterback that won the division that they were together here. This season with the dallas cowboys. Jim thome soula was a head coach of the forty niners at one point in time himself albeit for only a year obviously following in the footsteps of jim harbaugh who got an extension today of all days again with the university of michigan so lots of symmetry going on here and so. Yeah i mean my canola thing. I think everybody saw coming a mile away. The jim thome solo thing is a bit of a surprise austin on youtube. Says i thought it said mccarthy and was like whoa still good to get rid of nolan and this is how every cowboys fan feels. And let's be frank. Let's be honest. We don't enjoy talking about people losing their jobs. People getting fired or things like that but this defense was among the worst again in the history of this game. The dallas cowboys last week. With their season on the line against an offense that had been anemic for most of the season the new york giants that was incidentally again. You talk about all. The irony here led by former dallas cowboys head coach jason garrett in the giants offensive coordinator who again to go kind of crazy circle reportedly had an interview today on friday with the los angeles chargers for their head coaching vacancy. But the cowboys new york with their season on the line and they got run over. I mean the new york giants before last week against the cowboys. The previous four games. The giants had not scored more than three points in a single first half in each of the four games. The giants played before the cowboys. They went into the locker room at halftime with no more than three points. They put twenty up in the first half against the cowboys. And that was kind of what the season was for the cowboys right. This never ending display of imperfection this never ending run of records getting broken records getting set and i just you know this was inevitable. I mean shutout. Of course to the all encompassing thanos. I mean this truly was inevitable. Reality a lotta people myself. Included wondered what took so long this week. It's a pair at the mike mccarthy and his staff overall were evaluating things doing kind of the final walk throughs and assessments in whatever time just came for them to move
Jerry Jones would like do-over on Dallas Cowboys season, says changes on defense didn’t work
"You've got a situation which may never change. Not as long as you have the same guy calling the same shots. I'm talking about the Dallas Cowboys Another year under the huge disappointment, Big Mike McCarthy was supposed to change things from Jason Garrett. And all he did was win two fewer games than the Clapper did in 2019, and he all but handed the Giants the last game by not challenging an incompletion, which set up the G men to kick that game changing field goal. Not throwing the red flag in that spot was inexcusable. And the only guy who doesn't know that is big Mike himself. Division was on the line. Big Mikey couldn't even be bothered to help his team win that game. But if you think that Jerry Jones was mad, you don't know Jerry Jones. No one is addicted to loving Underachievers more than Jezeera. Here's Jarrah on one or 5.3, the fan talking about McCarthy not challenging in that spot. My initial reaction was that it's Very difficult to get these things overturn. You know, I was concerned about using the time out as well. We always wanted some do overs if they looked like they could have changed that outcome. Gerald was worried about burning timeouts. Also the same thing Big Mike said. Hey, fellas again, you know that you cannot take them with you, right? You know, you can't turn them into points, right? You know, they're no good. The locker room, right? You know those timeouts don't matter in the off season, right? I especially love that part, though, where he says quote. We always want some do overs if they look like they could have changed that outcome. Like hindsight's 2020, who would want to do it again? Jerry. The Red Challenge flag is literally a do over. That's what it is. It's an outcome changing do
Thirty-two NFL Awards
"Every week on this podcast given out. Nfl awards app. The week is over. This could be a bit ambitious but thirty two teams thirty two awards. Let's go we're gonna call this one the best six and ten team of all time award but the washington football team stepped up so now he renamed it already way to change the word on the fly in the moment with breaking news the best seven and nine team of all time award the washington football team now can we say that definitively it may be too early to say last year tampa atlanta both went seventy nine. Those teams didn't even make the playoffs so the early lean is that washington could be the great one of all time. But we don't know yet. Speaking of that game. The clockwork orange award goes to the new york giants because they had to watch i at one point. This season banned myself from nfc east games. I said i wouldn't watch any until the teams are over five hundred. I watch step drop sixty two instead of being super locked into washington philadelphia. And i don't feel like i miss much. I know there's a lot of controversy would get that. Maybe a little bit later but imagine having your eyeballs taped open like clockwork orange and being a member of the giants having to watch that game. Nate sub-field now. Look we can sit here and be upset about it but you could have gone seven nine and got into the playoffs. So how sorry. Can you really feel for the giants the skeletons on the zahara award. Yes some of these awards. We referenced. his some won't get boy when you do get a weird one. You're gonna go man. I get that all right. That award goes to the. Las vegas raiders. Because at the beginning it looked promising. Nice little boat trip trade. Some spices await were crashing into rocks. Not a big deal here. Some locals gathering on the beach here to help nope now. We're marching to our own death in africa so it was very pro gruden. Hey maybe this gruden guy knows what he's doing and then you're like wait. Does this actually suck again. The drought continues. The raiders have not won a playoff game. Since two thousand to the notre dame award that goes to the green bay packers great record high green. Bay's really good. They're thirteen three though the one seat but nobody outside of their own fan base is rooting for this team. Not only because of the history of hatred. Although i imagine there's way more anti notre dame stuff out there than it is anti green bay but no one trusts you. Yes you're thirteen and three but that's three. Nfc conference championship game losses in the six seasons. A couple down years. They've turned this thing around. They are the one seed. But everybody's kind of overt already before. It's even started the parent's weekend award that goes to the new orleans saints. You guys know the deal parents weekend. There's a dad he wants to stay out with you guys. And he's older he's a little beat up and you're like i don't know like we're going to go out. We can't say no. We respect him too much. It doesn't look great. Doesn't make a ton of sense on paper there's some bad stats in there. But you have to let them do it. You have to let them try and the thing is is you and your buddies like there's no way does this is going to end well. The iceman award that goes to the dallas cowboys man and dangerous. What is with this jolt. A don't let us get hot. This is insanity when this was part of the story lines throughout the cowboys broadcast. Yes you on three in a row. Cincinnati san francisco and philadelphia yay. Then you lost the giants at home. You came in eleventh in the nfc but if you were to get in look out. This is now. It's our time you were eleventh in your own conference dangerous. You had sixteen games to prove that you're only dangerous to your fan. Base is or perhaps the understanding of what the word danger beans the g. league award san francisco forty niners. They had twenty eight players. At one point on i r or another injury cova list which was most in the league. They use the most. I are slots. They lost the most games to injury in the nfl. And even with losing record my coach. kyle shanahan. i can't believe how competitive they were. All season law the dabble award. That goes to kirk cousins in the vikings bike. He's gonna win. Nah no one really cares are one in five star people already over this team so their disappointing season was so disappointing so early that it was just all of a sudden just completely off the radar even though they turn some things around there a bit in the middle of the season with dalvin cook but watching cousins dance reminded me of daboh announcing his tiktok account hickory vickery dot mouse ran up the clock coast. Sweeney's got that drill and now he's on tiktok.
New York Giants make it look easy early in must-win game against Dallas Cowboys
"The Giants and Cowboys. The winner of this one will need a loss by Washington tonight to make the playoffs right now, the Giants in front by a score of 7 to 3, the Buccaneers pretty much locked into the fifth seed in the NFC taking on the Falcons and up big early second quarter Patriots on top of the Jet. Seven. Nothing and the Lions and the Vikings just making it interesting. Have it all. Nothing else today with a lot of points early on in Detroit. Our first stop is Mike Mancuso and MetLife Stadium. Mike Okay, Rich. We are 10 minutes remaining in the first half. Giants continue to lead the Cowboys. It is 63. Before the game, we mentioned that the Giants needed a strong defensive game to keep the Cowboys offense off the field went. Daniel Jones and the Giants offense, try to do what they can and they've done that. Giant defenses played an extremely strong game so far against Andy Dalton and the Cowboys on the other side of the ball. The Giants offense has been decent. They scored on that first Dr Daniel Jones looks like he has some movement, but the last couple of possessions have resulted in punch. But the field position has been good for the Giants, so they've been able to Pin Dallas back. So right now Dallas on a 3rd and 10 throws an incomplete pass on their own 12 yard line. So again, the Cowboys will be pumping for the fourth time today and, barring anything crazy to Giants will have good field position. Start another drive.
"dallas cowboys" Discussed on Bending The Bracket
"A and really. We'll see what bill takes made as far as drafting me. He's been able to kind of put it on autopilot here. The last several years will brady quarterback. 'cause brady could make anything around him work and now he's going to really have to start visas together for this team compete. Yeah he's done this. I mean for all he's done for this franchise which is is amazing and it's it's a lot He he's really fail them and drafting Top talented specifically perimeter offensive players They do well on the offensive line. They do very well through defense. But there's something about skill players on offense that he can't get right. I mean they showed a stat last night that was mind blowing since two thousand ten. So we're talking ten seasons now. The total number of touchdown scored by a wide receivers drafted by new england. Is fourteen fourteen. Well i mean that's some players get that in a season and you're talking about one point four touchdowns per season from drafted wide receivers. Wonder your offense. Is anemic right exactly. It's something's got to change. I don't know where you change it. Because bill has so much power in the franchise but someone has to sit down with him and say. Let me help you. Let me take control. Let me do some Some of the scouting before we make these picks because they've got to get some better off into players much true. I don't know the bella check. Marina heard he doesn't listen to a lot of people so no it's it's like him or the hallway so we'll see what happens and I i still believe in bill a check and i think that he. Here's what's being said. And i hope that he'll make the right decisions because the nfl is better with. Patriots is I wanna talk briefly This is a game that has no bearing on playoffs at all. But i want to talk briefly about the cowboys. But i wanna start talk specifically about how quickly they've become irrelevant. Have you noticed that they are. I mean very much so in every weekday will grow more of element. It is fascinating to me. How quickly and and. I never thought i would say this. But it's about dak prescott once. He went down You know he kept them relevant. He kept them in ballgames You can say what you want about him as far as being overpaid that kind of thing but hey lease kept an interesting. You know very much the way that when roma would get hurt they would just disappear years ago right and they've been flexed off of sunday night football for the first time in fourteen years which you know that makes jerry far more angry than losing. That's unbelievable because the only thing worse than losing is being irrelevant as the dallas cowboys owner. And you look at these terrible contracts they have you look at the whole landscape of how the nfc east is quickly turning into. Its flipped up. It's flipped upside down Now the giants in washington both have good young rosters. great coaches Their payrolls aren't excessive. Like the cowboys. So dallas's is very much in danger of being irrelevant for the next five years I think so in. But this might be enough to get jerry to pull the trigger on mccarthy after the season. I don't think so i don't think our surprise me i'm not saying will but When you start seeing things like this happen this is what's more important jerry. The ratings in the tv and things like that that these make the cowboys exciting. Absolutely when those saints star taken away then he might look to make rash decisions. One can only hope As a fan..

"And from as you're humble host onto the show, it is Wednesday June tenth two thousand and twenty, a very happy Hump Day from all of us to all of you. We hope that all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy. Safe healthy practicing social distancing, and we hope talking about the Dallas cowboys brings you some level of joy. It is the middle of the week so hopefully. You've got some fun things in store this weekend. I mentioned that We're moving and so lots of packing my future. You know you just you never need boxes right? And so you get all the boxes and then all of a sudden. You need boxes now. You know what all the boxes now, but I digress. Tuesday we got some Dallas cowboys action in a weird way. Tuesday had some interesting Dallas cowboys. I don't say headlines But content lurking and something really cool Troy Aikman was on the Darren Woodson show a new podcast out there. I've checked out there and podcasts pretty awesome, so if you haven't make sure you go, support a former cowboy and Darren has had on variety of people on his podcast so far, but he obviously had troy remain, and there was a lot discussed here, and it was just really cool to hear troy and Darren, talking about life and football and everything. But Troy I thought he was asked about how he handled success. Once he finally achieved it with the cowboys after they want Super Bowl twenty twenty-seven, because if you know troy kamins entire career, you know very well, you know that. Obviously. You know in college things then get off to a great start for him transferred to Ucla and obviously things didn't get off to a great start in the NFL with the cowboys, but I thought this was a really interesting answer that troy kind of took a number of directions. Here's Troy Aikman on Darren Woodson show. At the time, whenever teams had gone on and won a super bowl, then they always talk about the super bowl hangover, the foul and sees and how they struggled, and they typically had most teams had struggled after they'd WanNa Super Bowl guys, doing book, deals or appearances, and you kind of lose. Lose the focus. I guess and. It was always strange to me because after we won our championship. I thought man. That's such a such a magical time and the feelings you have when you go through that playoff run and win a super bowl. To me, it only fueled the drive that much more. How do you not want to feel this every year? You know so I got even more motivated to to to win at all costs, and and so that's really where it came from, and then knowing that we had become an offense that we throw the ball. There's this. There's this idea that that all we did was run the ball you know and and we ran the ball obviously, and we ran the ball well, but we threw the ball really well, too, and early on in Games, in the first half, we would throw the ball more with we'd run it. And then we'd close games running the ball, but if you go back and look at a number of those years our best years. are are yards per per pass we were. We were number one a few times. We were top three, so we didn't throw it as much as Miami or San Francisco Green Bay, but when we did, we throw it as well if not better than anybody who did so we? We were a really good throwing team, but with that being stead I knew that I knew that I wasn't going to win. Passing titles or touchdowns and I would have loved to have thrown the ball more than. Than we did, but my legacy was going to be about winning championships and and that's really that's that's why I'm in all fame. I know that and and so I knew that early on that that this is this is how I'm going to be defined and quite honestly I was okay with that. I mean that's that's the way as it should be. especially as a quarterback and so I think that only fueled me a little bit more and the frustration for me. I moved through. My career is I just felt that there were a lot of decisions being made that I had no control over, and yet they were reflecting on me because of how we were playing on the field, and and so I I know what it was like when I first got in the League, and we weren't very good, and then I know what it was like. When we got good that five six year window, and then you through that you earn some respect urine, respecting your own locker room and urine respect around the league. And I felt like I was at risk of giving that up. Because of nothing that I could control and that's where the frustration became Each year got more and more frustrating and I really felt that I'd go on and play after I left. The cowboys didn't obviously work out that way, but You know my career was cut a little bit shorter. What it wasn't. It really was not due to injury it was due to. Just. Finally got a breaking point, and and not not wanting to continue to do things or go along with the things that were being done in Dallas. Troy we have heard say at several turns. that he well I suppose I should say we've heard Choi, make some interesting comments or things that people would chop up to be interested in comments and. Maybe you don't find it interesting that troy would kind of blame. That's harsher of things on the front. Office certainly saying that you know. He was just kind of worn out there at the end He's spoken before about how he was. You know maybe you're. GonNa play somewhere else. He talked about that in his episode of a football. If we talked about that with Chris Weaver our friend from NFL films. I, just I don't know I mean obviously Troy Aikman knows better than anybody else about the life of Troy Aikman but That's interesting to hear and you know. Troy has also spoken about how he kind of has some sort of goals to be an NFL general manager, and how? He's realized that you know that's not going to happen with the cowboys because he's not a Jones and I don't know I just you know it's interesting to hear Troy Aikman. Continue to talk I think I think that people are and I'm not saying nobody should be, but I think people love Tony. Romo. In love him as an analyst, and as a commentator that we almost take for granted, how good trike is at his job as well and Troy Aikman a great public speaker, and so hearing him on this podcast was awesome We talked to Edward or last weekend 750 about he was on his podcast, and by the way I know that we did not have a new episode of the seven five. Oh this week Tony. Mentioned that he was getting some knee surgery, so he is, he's on on the men, so our best wishes to our fellow bt. Beer Tony Casillas. That was why we weren't able to get an episode of the seven five hour, but we should have one next week anyway. Interesting comments from Troy I thought the coolest thing was how he talked about how he knew that he was going to be defined by championships, and he really didn't care about anything else. He just wanted to win. You know in in your super cliche world. That's what you want to hear from your quarterback. Right I just want to win. Whatever win it all cost win win win! This offseason has felt so long. That I've already forgotten until this moment that it was just a few months ago, that people tried to make the case that Tony Romo was more talented than Troy. You know I'm just going to say. I disagree and we'll leave it at that but that was not the only interesting point of audio recently..

It's also going to be you know by the time the draft is over. We'll probably be live for like eleven hours so we can keep all of that running smoothly without any like major hiccups. That'll be really really exciting. yeah. I guess I hadn't really thought about the fact that I'm just GonNa be at home for the whole thing but hopefully you know live streaming the draft from my couch. Sounds a little bit more comfortable than doing it from the chairs at the studio at work? That's a good point. Well I guess congrats on that upgrade of sorts You know if you know you're going to be on camera everything so maybe you go with the heavy short. You know package if that's what you WANNA do. You know what I mean like you. You've got that option. I was actually. I was debating yesterday. 'cause like it's kind of it's our tradition for draft covers that we like to dress up and you know we take it seriously like. I usually wear a tie at least for like ninety one so yesterday I was like debating you know. Should I like where tie like do I should should? I put a suit on or should I just do this thing in my sweat. I don't know I haven't yet. I guess I got to figure that out. You could be the comical like standard guy like order the t shirt with the tax printed on like everybody loves that Guy but Well certainly want to get your thoughts briefly on the draft at the end here but a nice reprieve. I think all week long. We've been talking about the greatest teams in cowboys franchise history to have won the super bowl. I tweeted about this last Sunday. And a lot of feedback from different people and a lot of people suggested two thousand sixteen. I'm curious if you agree that that is one of the greatest teams in franchise history to not win the Super Bowl. I mean just from a numbers standpoint. I think that's probably true. You know I mean how you know. Stay tied the franchise record for wins in thirteen thirteen and three. I think them in. Oh seven. That's the two best records in franchise history if I'm not mistaken Where that ranks among like all of the great cowboys team. I don't know I don't think they're number one. I don't they're probably not even top three I think bad team. It was a lot of button but I think there was a lot of lightning in a bottle in that situation You know obviously it was disappointing way to end the season. I would've loved to see them get a chance to play Atlanta and maybe New England. But there's probably there's probably at least two or three other teams that I would say are better than them. Where do they rank? This is your first season was twenty thirteen right. Where do they rank? If you rank the ones you've covered. Are they even in the top? I I'd imagine that the top three but you can certainly argue twenty four teams better in a different way. But are they what are they what are they? That's really tough. Oh Man I think I think twenty six teen was probably the better overall team From top to bottom like everything You know I think people kind of gloss over just how Wolf that twenty? Four defense was right But I think I and then keep in mind you know. Obviously it's what if but the two thousand sixteen team also had home field advantage throughout the playoffs so whether it had been Atlanta or who'd Atlanta beating the division around. I don't even remember Seattle so I mean regardless of who they played they would have had the benefit of playing at home whereas obviously if Dallas beat Green Bay and fourteen. They're going up to CENTURYLINK FIELD. Which is a really tough place to win especially in the playoffs Having said all of that I probably give the edge to twenty fourteen because for the final six weeks of that season. Tony Romo was playing like an MVP. I wrote a column that year that he deserved a little bit more buzz for the NFL MVP consideration. Obviously Dad's had the best season of his career. I actually looked this up when we were talking about on twitter. Like in terms of production like touchdowns and yards per catch like it was one of the five bad seasons for the last twenty years. And then you have one of the ten or so best rushing season from DEMARCO. Murray like they they had some really remarkable stuff going on and When you combine that with Romo playing at the level he was at. I think I'd probably give fourteen the edge. I'm interested than number three if those are number one and two is number three hundred nineteen even though they you know kind of you know out there you would have to say twenty eighteen just because that's the only other team I've covered. That made it to the playoffs. I suppose that's fair. I see I was gone more from like a talent stand but I don't you think like the two thousand nine hundred eighteen talented than two thousand eighteen. I'd have to think about IT I. I don't think I don't think you can definitely say that I mean twenty eighteen. Obviously deck was way better in nineteen than eighteen But I mean eighteen. You still had nine games of Amari Cooper. You had the absolute best season of of buyer Jones's career You had demarcus Lawrence producing at a much better clip than he was in two thousand nineteen And I think everybody else around them arguably played better. Yeah I mean Jalen Smith and late vendor were so much better at eight in the nineteen bomb. That's a good question like I'd be interested to see who would win a game between the two thousand eighteen. Twenty nineteen cowboys. But I'm going to defer to the team that made the playoffs. I mean they. They won ten games. They went seven one down. The stretch and twenty nineteen cowboys couldn't get out of their own way for more than like a week and a half. I'm so I have a hard time giving them any sort of accolade. That's fair I suppose in thinking about this twenty sixteen wise kind of like lightning in a bottle implies like it really really dissipated quickly afterwards and obviously there's been some success and whatnot win. When do you think they caught it if that like? When was the moment they like? Put the LID on the bottle. I know it's a weird question Ache your like anywhere anywhere between like the Middle Aspect of that twenty sixteen season from like from like mid October to Thanksgiving like you could point to beat green bay down in lambofield against Aaron Rodgers. Which doesn't happen very often You know DAK played poorly against Philadelphia. And then let them back for that overtime win and then obviously you know they win an instant classic against Pittsburgh and everybody kind of points to that game as you know everybody collectively decided like you know. We can't pull back out of the lineup after that So anywhere in that stretch you know. Obviously they won eleven games in a row but but not all of them were impressive. You know you think back like they. They looked really shaky Minnesota in December of that year They struggled a couple other times but like in that. Stretch from like. Yeah like mid October until around Thanksgiving. It just didn't seem like anybody could could touch them. No matter what happened I I like to look at time in a weird way all the time but is it strange to think that we are just as far removed from that season now than at the time we were from the last cowboy season that you didn't cover that makes sense. Yeah I mean it's dude. Yeah the older I get and I mean I'm only thirty one so I know some people would probably rolling their eyes at me like I'm not that old in the grand scheme of things but I mean shoot I was. I don't even know if I was twenty four yet when I took this job You know demarcus. Ware was still a cowboy. When I got here Travis Frederick hadn't been drafted yet so yeah I mean I have been here for the entirety of an all pro career. Travis Frederick got drafted a month after I started and he retired a month ago That's really weird for me to think about. So if it's really weird to look around and realize that you know there's only about two guys left on the entire roster that were here before I got here and I think it's Sean Lee and Lt Ladder. That's nuts. I didn't think about that that way. That's a long time ago like if you think Twenty twenty in the NFL right so like if you would think like when you started was the spring of two thousand thirteen so the Ravens were defending super bowl champions and so like if you were to look at the exact same gap of time seven years prior to US starting was the spring of Os. Six in Tony. Romo hadn't even taken over yet again like that freaks me out like pregnant in that in those terms. I think it's funny because like it's easy to measure the NFL like by quarterback careers. Because like when you think about that it's it's a lot.

"Got a couple of guys that might make the hall of fame. Big Deal that right to have to me. You have to have a ton of hall of fame players or our guys up for the whole thing to do And that team didn't have that what to that point. I mean that that exact point exists for the two thousand fifteen team. You know what I mean like. If you're going the hall of fame measurement you know what I mean so I just I this team and I think you'll agree is so fascinating In terms of the the sort of place it holds in many people's maybe hearts and minds. And maybe this is more of a psychological question and of course had a brilliant education at Texas universities in your fit to answer this But what what is that? I mean I think 'cause you saw this. This team was suggested by many and I think that this team answers. More of a question So in from the perspective of maybe. What's your favorite team? That didn't win a super bowl. I can certainly by that but I mean if you're if you're caring teams And what do you think it is? Do you think it's like revisionist history. And sort of revisiting like senior high school sort of and this is like a letterman jacket type team. If that makes sense I think one thing that people my age forget I mean. I grew up in in the seventies when the cowboys had the twenty year consecutive winning season. I mean they're always they're always. They were always good and then they come back in the nineties and they win the three super bowls. They're good for most of that decade. So what people my age sometimes forget is there is this whole generation of fans of cowboys. Who have never known winning. And they have no sensitivity. They don't know all that they didn't live through that they didn't see that kind of the glory days of the cowboys. So I think this is yes. This is one of the Best Team. They have in their lifetimes. There's no question about that. A lot of people. It is one of the best teams that they can remember seeing cowboys team When they've been alive but for for me I see most of the cowboys teams and it doesn't rank among those great teams and I would tell anyone who ranks at the best cowboy seem not to have won a super bowl. You Know Who's coaching that team? Really think Jason Garrett was going to win. A superbowl wasn't going to happen. There was no possible way even if they had one in Green Bay. I don't know that they could have gone on and beating Seattle New England. I just don't think it was going to happen. And that's kind of what you're looking at to win a championship. I just don't believe to this day if they would have done that. While so the as you know the idea that everybody holds onto well they'd gone to Seattle earlier in this. You know like that's that's the crutch that everybody uses in their minds to sort of soften this memory. I guess I've been asking everybody. We've been discussing this three teams that have come out. We're going to explore the two thousand sixteen team later this week and I think that's just as ridiculous of argument honestly but if you look at oh seven fourteen and sixteen if you were to rank those three teams chances against the Patriots teams. They would have faced off respectively in the Super Bowl. Who's got the best chance who's got the second bassin who's who's just getting routed time about two thousand seven two thousand seven so seven copies o seven. Patriots and fourteen had they gone to Seattle and wine so planned fourteen patriots and then sixteen four to assume the cowboys you know somehow beat the packers beat Atlanta in the NFC. Championship game Because I think the more I think about it. I think the sixteen cowboys. Stand the best chance but just because I think the sixteen patriots are the weakest. It's it's more about New England here than anything for me gum and and I regret that premise. If if we're looking at the best one of those cowboys teams. I would say two thousand seven agree with the fast one of those cowboys teams that we're talking about and I do think if Creighton had made the catch there and that giant's game I think the cowboys have won that game. I mean this was a team that you're talking about. You have to be good on both sides of the ball in my mind to win a championship. And that's why I say the twenty fourteen being nineteenth on defense. The defense just wasn't good enough. They didn't have any playmakers. Deep dish weren't good enough on defense to do that. But that two thousand seventeen. I do think they were. They were good enough on. They ranked ninth and defense third off. They were well rounded Football team and I understand they got blown out by the Patriots that year at home and and so I agree with you from from that standpoint. I don't know that they would have gone back to the Super Bowl and have beaten the Patriots. But I I would have liked to seen that and I think they would have given the Patriots a much better game. They get earlier in the season. I think would have made some adjustments and then been much better but I agree with you on. The premise of that was the weakest. The twenty sixteen was the week at the Patriots Teams Obviously yet two thousand seven Patriots team is still one of the best of all time. Even though they didn't get it done So quiz time for you Charene. You've spotted off where each of these teams ranked offensively and defensively so pretty confident that you're going to be able to handle this. Who Will Lead the twenty fourteen cowboys in interceptions? It's been six years so it's been long enough that maybe this is fuzzy in the mind. Twenty fourteen team in interceptions. I.

"For some fine impatience In kicking around the the top ten songs of two thousand and seven. I had forgotten about a lot of those songs. I'm telling you umbrella was my jam. I mean I've had some some songs like disturbed by Riana Man. Those those are some good taps. I mentioned tomorrow's guest Sharon Williams from Prophet Botox. She's a fighting Texas aggie. Just like me. I'm fall of two thousand eight in college station. Disturbed was playing a lot. Let's say that You know they were good times but look Monday was. Kinda just chill day ultimately with regards to the NFL And for what it's worth the NFL and NFL PA Did agree on a virtual offseason program? So it seems like we're GONNA get some action if you WANNA call it that there. Lots of teams players and staffs zooming and skyping and face timing. So that's going on but you know next big thing coming up is the draft and I'm really excited about the things we're going to be doing for the draft at blogging. The boys where we're going to have you covered everywhere on the podcast feed video on the side on social. I mean we're all going to watch this draft together obviously in a virtual sense ourselves and so we're going to have some fun and and I think I think you'll enjoy and we appreciate you coming along for the ride. So yeah two thousand seven cowboys I. I have a hard time putting them the ninety fourteen personally but I for me. That's in talking about seventy in sixty eight. I think that these are the top four. I really do I think. In whatever order you want to go. Ninety four zero seven seventy eight sixty eight however you want to sort those out. I think that I can kind of rest with that personally. But I'm excited to talk about the two thousand fourteen team and the two thousand sixteen team because I think I think we'll have a bit of an experience doing that. And that's what we're always going to do here on the OCHO. Hey you got to favor right. You gotTa have the absolute best Tuesday of all time you know why because you deserve it my friends as always go cowboys and peace out.

"In retrospect and it wasn't viewed that way initially so even though there was like. I it was considered a strong lex of talent. It wasn't thought to be initially a big time super bowl contender. I don't think They have the run and gun opening game against the yarn. Not to interrupt you but I vividly remember Watching an NFL network pregame show like early on in Jamie. Dukes was on and predicted because it was everyone's doing their super bowl. Prediction teams. Whatever baby dukes predicted the cowboys to face off against a team that you and I have also talked about that doesn't get enough love? Nfl history the two thousand six San Diego chargers that went fourteen in two thousand. Seven was Turner's first year who had interviewed for the Cowboys at coaching. He predicted a cowboys chargers super bowl and I thought at the time like wow. Nobody's really the cowboys in this capacity. But you know obviously was a bit. Prophetic ended up being really good. Yeah absolutely and it was one of those things where they opened the season the giants and have that running gun opening match up. Where I I can't remember Romo's exact stat line but I I remember something certain in terms of just how few passes he threw it. And how do I get Kinda guess? 'cause I think I remember it but I'm not a hundred percent? Sure okay hit me. I think it was. It was something to the effective. Fifteen twenty four for three forty five. There's no way you're not looking at this. That's nobody cares about it. Dude no okay. Y'All don't understand y'all don't understand. This is like my savant. I did serious. I couldn't remember was fifteen of twenty four fifteen of twenty six fifteen twenty four three hundred. Forty five yards four touchdowns one interception. He also had three rushing attempts for eleven yards a touchdown on the ground. Yeah and that was that was a that was a a lot of hope about wow. This could be the you know rejuvenated cowboys often. Jason Garriga Whiz Kid. That's been in Miami the last couple of years. And you know it's no longer the which is funny to think about now at the time like Garrett was Sean McVeigh People. And and it's funny. How people do it now. But I mean you you think fit. Garrett style was old they were coming out of you know forty five second game clock type of thinking. Bill parcells on offense right so I mean it was. It was old school and it was finally freed up and allowed to kind of you know take chances and you know people saw the offense blow up that game the following weekends Miami. But I don't think people really started to believe in them as contenders until about third week where they were Sunday night football. They were on the road at soldier field against the defending NFC champion. It seems a lot of war. No doubt about it but they throttled them especially in the second half. What'S THE FUN game? It's Mr civilised thirty four to ten right and I wanNA say Terre alone. Game was eight for one. Forty five eight for one. Forty five year official prediction. Fratello believe. That's correct terrel owens against the Chicago bears. How many targets? Oh Gosh I don't know. I think that was one of those games where he was pretty close to perfect. So like eight or nine wells. Okay so I WANNA interrupt for one forty five I WANNA. I remember that game. I have to interrupt you because I don't think I've ever told you this either. And so I know do this a lot but I remember vividly and telling everybody I knew this little theory of mine and so I had kind of equated the Oh seven cowboys to the ninety five cowboys and my thought was In in ninety four and in Oh six they there they were bounced you know on the road against an NFC. West him An lost that really heartbreaking playoff game That costed them a trip to a super bowl. That would have been Miami like ninety four. No six And in response to that took a defensive back from the team they lost to in free agency the following season in ninety four acetate dion and then in seven after six they take. Who's the Guy I'm talking about? Ken Hamlin through is not considered a a big study at the time but of course came in a pro bowl season right so and and on top of that. The first game of the ninety five year the cowboys throttled the giants in the first prime time game of the season which was on Monday night football and then in. Oh seven throttled the giants in the first primetime game of the year which was on Sunday night. Football remember kind of Heaven. Oh and there was something else I forget what it was but the point was I had that gone in like everybody I knew was dude. You have way too much time on your hands. It was like you don't get in thirteen years when I talked about belt about. Yeah Yeah you have too much time on your hands but I remember fifteen twenty four for thirty forty five so I get you and so like I mean we're we're kindred spirits here the and that was the funny thing is you talk about you. Know people have wanted to bring up two thousand sixteen as one of the best runner ups and twenty fourteen. Which I don't think those two teams anywhere close to some of the things that happen to want it and I think it's obnoxious to suggest that but when you look at the best parts of those teams those twenty four and twenty two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen teams that was Dallas. Like a lot of people. Don't remember that you know the twenty fourteen defense as much as they gave stuff up and you'll remember. They generated a ton of turnover. Yeah a ton and it's funny to think about now 'cause you know five years of like nine turnovers season or some crap but at at seventeen was doing that that oh seventeen was you know getting tons of turnovers with you know. I think better than the guys who had at least four interceptions I mean fifteen. You know fifteen interceptions. Between Anthony Henry Ken Hamlin and Terence Newman. And you're generating pressure to double digit sack guys and you were still able to do some of the aggressive things in the passing game like you didn't fourteen and you know you had the sort of dominant offense of line. I obviously think the offensive line and fourteen was better than the one I know seven but oh seven was strong one and everybody says like now. We're getting into the weeds. Like people will love to say like if Tony Romo had ever. Had you know a great offensive line again to your point? He had a great offensive line in two thousand fourteen. But people do sleep on this sort of. Oh Six oh eight offensive line like that. That group does not get a lot of love generally as especially oh seven right when they when they brought it out. Leonard Davis really and Leonard Davis really starting to fulfill some his potential. Having been you know the second overall pick in the draft several years prior by the cardinals reading Michael Vick was taken and they flow. Cell Adams was finally kind of hitting his stride. And you know Y- they'd really built the other Andre Girod. Had you know for all the jokes? He still like to make today though he couldn't snap in the shotgun like I mean Andre Gerard was dominant at center. I mean to me. I'M NOT GONNA say. He was just as good but he. He was in the ballpark. Of what Travis. Frederick had been for them for the last several years. I was really really good for them. So looking at this roster I think That's why I think it's fair. Potentially to say this is the best team in now in a super bowl. This is the most touchdowns Tony Romo threw in a single season. Mr Von. How many was it thirty six. All right this is the career year for Marion. Body also through nineteen interceptions. Of course this is the career. Marion Barber This is prime to your point. Demarcus ware frame. Probably every member of that secondary exceptionally Roy Williams and I ran into that prime. Wasn't that long but you were getting a lot of production out of Anthony. Henry even like Pat. Watkins had the return touchdown against the Vikings after the blocks Yoko. You're still getting great production at a Greg. Ellis is Prime Jason Witten. I mean you're talking about Greg Greg Ellis length. Let's not just forget Greg. Ellis had twelve and a half sacks. Would you look at and go awhile? Krier Greg Ellis craiglist twelve and a half sacks in twelve games. He or two thirteen games or something. He didn't play. I don't think till the rams game or a I think the rams getting was the first game. He played that year because he was still recovering from an injury from the year before. So Greg Ellis was averaging like a soccer game and demarcus. Ware was chain about a sack. A game and you had. Yeah Anthony Henry. Playing the best of all of his career when they're outside of early o five probably. Hey guys going to get back to talking to two thousand seven Dallas cowboys in just a second before we do a quick break here award from our sponsors. Welcome back everybody. Let's get talking two thousand seven Dallas Cowboys right here on the right. And you've got a long defensive line. Chris canty Jay ratliff. Marcus Spears Jason Hatcher. Before you know Rod Marinelli earned Jay ratliff. Really starting to come into his own and no seven. That was broke out. It wasn't as I probably year. But that's he broke out as you know one of the better you know. Interior Defensive Linemen in the League right you've got. I mean the goat Bobby Carpenter. I mean like the point is you know. Why are you do you do that? The point is like the depth on. This team is stupid. I mean honestly I mean compared to like what what it's been like. What's the deepest roster they've had that is drastically different since maybe like twenty? It'd be twenty sixteen. I mean honestly twenty nine hundred twenty nine probably twenty nine hundred nineteen one the more talented teams they've ever had and that's the thing. Twenty nineteen and twenty two thousand seven. I it's interesting. Oh seven is kind of a a look into something a little bit more different like if things would have been a little bit more different for the two thousand nineteen cowboys because they were doing the same sort of things. They were absolutely throttling teams when they would beat them. The Oh seven cowboys where you look you know I. I think it was the first four something like the first four road games. They played that season or for the first five because they had the close one against buffalo before the first five they won road games by double digits. That's great I mean. It was like you know they. They beat the dolphins by you. Know like twenty or something. They beat the bears by twenty four. And you know they. They have divisional games against the eagles where they beat them by twenty one. And that's the famed whitten game. Where his helmet pops off and You know the you remember. We all had that moment where we're talking about. Oh look at the chemistry and the trust that Dad Maury Hab with each other when when the against the eagles with the Grabbing the ear hole and in eighteen an audible into the go round right. You had that signature moment with Carol Owens and Tony Romo which was right off the ball. Romo saw T. O. And shouted his name is here on the broadcast. It goes Te'o and like guns to him and he grabs me runs any score a touchdown. That's what he does. This whole wing. Flap thing right. That was There was randy. Moss was the only receiver that you're better than tear allowance There arguably wasn't the tight end better that year than Jason witten young to that Louis Jason Win Today Point Whitten has the game in Detroit with fifteen catches which is sets the cowboys record. Witten has the game at home against Washington with the four touchdown receptions and nobody will ever and stuff right. Sorry Te'o has and nobody will ever convince me otherwise later that night on Sunday night. Football that Randy. Moss does not get four touchdowns. If not for TEO I. I will never ever believe anything else. I believe that. Yeah I went up and each other. Yeah one to leave. I've got to do it because Teo did earlier. Today I will never ever ever. There was a four game stretch. It was. Let's see here. They they had gotten there. Were five and now when they squared off against the Patriots or four five. They were coming over there by low so they beat. Buffalo and then they they lose to the Patriots they beat Minnesota head of the by right. And so you got the Minnesota game the bye week and then right after that. I think is Silly giants redskins giants Philly Redskins. You're right ever order Philly at New York Washington And in that four game stretch.

"You know as mentioned we're taking this thing chronologically We're going in order and so Not to sort of answer the question on Monday but I think it. I think it's very fair to say that this is probably the best Dallas cowboys team. That did not win the Super Bowl. Honestly nine hundred seventy it might be number two even though we're not really exploring them in depth and I think you know I hadn't thought about this when we kind of I were kicking this whole idea around. I hadn't thought about answering it this way. But if you ask yourself who's the best team in Dallas cowboys history? Write your answer. Although the seventy seventeen is a very fair answer your answers probably something to do with nine dynasty right like maybe you go ninety two ninety three again maybe you want to go ninety five you get on. Sanders on a team. That's fine if that's the best team in Dallas cowboys history. How is the team? That basically has that roster not the best team that didn't win the Super Bowl in terms of the ninety fourteen. That's that's that's what sells the team for me. That's the final sort of thing and so I mean at the end of today. At least I feel like the nineteen hundred. Forty might be the best team in cowboys history to not win the Super Bowl. So that sucks the nine hundred ninety four team. I'm I'm being with you. Demarco's answer on the blog on the boys. Instagram feed bummed me out. I was pretty bummed and again I'm excited to get to the two thousand fourteen team. That will be our Wednesday episode. I think that that team answers a different question because again. These are my thoughts on Monday. I don't believe that the two thousand fourteen dollars couch are the best team to not win. A Super Bowl in franchise history. I think that there probably I think that the two thousand four hundred team is the team. That didn't win a super bowl. That hurts me the most. If that makes sense it's a different answer you know because it's a different emotion because we all we all felt certain things and there was such a magical season when you when you sort of. Add the hindsight that we have even just six years later. I mean we've had this hindsight for a few years now but that was the closest that Tony Romo overcame. It eats at you in a different way and so I think we want to say it was the best team that didn't win the Super Bowl but again as mentioned that defense was off. You know and so it's hard to say. I think the way you may be at least the way I measure. These up is like if the two thousand fourteen guy was in ninety four cowboys from twenty s before played the ninety fourteen. Beats that team like forty two to twenty. I mean it's not good for the twenty fourteen cowboys at least but look. This can be a fun week and It's it's a fun week to kind of set us going into the draft and I know we're going to have some fun with it here on the Ocho. We're going to have some fun on all of our shows..

"That's it was going to come down to that for the third year in a row. Obviously everybody's aware and I think I think there's a lot to what makes it. You know maybe because you can categorize different ways like what's the best team in terms of like which team had the most talented Or what's the most painful year in? The cowboys didn't win the Super Bowl. I didn't part of it is like is the story of it all and living through it and I mean you certainly you know you live through the catch you know a decade and change before and so there's this rich history in between those two teams and this again foregone conclusion and the fact that it comes to be and it's his third straight title game. I mean so. That's a really really really bitter pill to swallow to lose that team in particular does does that kind of add to it for you or that part his independent. Well that part of it is is Also you know as I'm saying a lot of the The components the ingredients that lead up to it You know certainly the The fact that The forty niners and the cowboys were the perennial teams not just in the NFC in my opinion but also in the AFC. I mean you know. They were the best teams in football. Which is why thing you know the cowboys certainly would have walked over the chargers as well and so you know a lot of people. I remember saying you know that the championship game the NFC championship game was actually the Super Bowl. Right and so yeah I mean you know. Those are part of the components The the added ingredients. I'm saying to what makes it You know such a You know mourning period for the cowboys that year. I I WANNA get into the talent specifically in a second but I think part of the reason too is you mentioned it. Felt like a slam dunk. Like I felt like we're just GONNA run this back or whatever. It's going to be three in a row and today I mean we've played you know what fifty four super bowl is and there's never been a team that won three of them in a row Which is you know kind of insane when you really think about how some teams if obviously cost but I think the perhaps the most bitter element to it is that the fact that the cowboys didn't is somewhat self induced. I still believe like I know that it really happened but I. I believe if that situation unfolded today you know where you know because I think you know media's obviously a lot bigger in two thousand twenty then it was in nineteen ninety four if the two-time reigning champion coach. Just you know parted ways from the team like that would be the biggest story in sports in and I'm not saying it wasn't but I mean that would overwhelm the world as we know it in in normal times obviously But but I guess you know the fact that Jerry and Jimmy obviously had their falling out And it's ironic. Were having this conversation the spring. That Jimmy Johnson's navin elected to the hall of fame. But is is that part of it for you to is that you know. It's not just that the cowboys loss to the forty niners. Instead the cowboys kind of shot themselves in the foot in some respects no I mean yeah. That's that's certainly a part of the difficult pill to swallow because you know again. This was a dynasty. You know like we hadn't seen in a number of years And I'm talking about cowboys fans. I think that You know the fact that the team was already in place in had taken a while to put it in place you know it. Involved all of the Intricacies of the Herschel Walker Trade and all of the great draft picks that have been made. And you know. We're gelling together at that time. He didn't have as much you know. Departures due to free agency. That I recall. It was just starting right like the salary. Cap Era in free agency was just doing exactly. And so you know you had basically the same nucleus and the second layer of and maybe even the third layer of the nucleus intact and so you know and most of these guys were still in their prime so you know again it that those are the things that that I'm talking about. When I say was was a slam dunk and when the Jimmy Johnson thing happened and And you know Barry Switzer hiring you know we felt like okay. Well you know I mean there was maybe a little bit truth. Or maybe a lot of truth to the fact when You know they said that anybody can come in and coach this team and take it twenty in the Super Bowl because we did feel like all. The components weren't place so so yeah the fact that You know a little bit of the Self-induced Demise was there also You know with with somewhat of a setback but you know it was thought amongst cowboys fans that you know. We could overcome that easily man. But a bit of a bummer. To kind of think about. But you're right like the talent a lot deeper Certainly than anywhere else around the NFL. At the time. I want you to guess. How many pro bowlers were onto ninety four cowboys man? I'm thinking maybe nine or ten would Would be where I would sit on that okay so looking at the NFC pro bowl roster the way the leading vote getter on the AFC side was New England. Patriots quarterback drew bledsoe Just seven seven years away from Tom. Brady's for super bowl but so troy Aikman Was a quarterback's that's one. Emmett is to Moose is three. Michael Irvin is four. Jay Novacek is five. Nate Newton Mark Step Naski Mark Tuinei. That's what eight that we've got just on offense and then on Defense Charles Haley Nine Leon Lett is ten and then on the Secondary Darren. Woodson is eleven. There were eleven pro bowlers on this team and they lost this game amazing. Yeah and eight of them on offense so yeah you essentially had the Almost a starting team for the pro bowl With the cowboys on offense it's unreal. I mean it really is and so that's just I mean. Pro Bowl is pro bowl. I mean again like Steve. Young's a pro baller Jerry Brent Jones. So it's not like Bardo it's not like the forty niners were shy of talent either but when you consider what the cow Ricky watters also the other thing is when you look at how many hall of Famers Okay. So you've got the triplets right? That's three if you want to count Jerry amount of why you wouldn't but that's four Charles. Haley is five. That's your fourth player. And he's not a pro bowler on this team in nineteen ninety four. But I don't know if you recall this nine hundred ninety. Four Larry Allen's rookie year for the cowboys. So that's another hall of Famers who got four hall of famers on Offense Charles Haley on defense at five and then currently not a hall of Famer. I think we both believe should be hall of Fame Darren Woodson. Who at the very least is a ring of honor member? I mean you're talking about you know potentially at one point in time you've got six hall of famers on this team and you lose the game now lady. Who's the game but you blow twenty one points in the opening minutes and the hall of fame owner and Hall of fame coach to well. No you're missing the hall of fame coach. That's the thing you know like. That's that's the guy that built the team right. Yeah exactly I mean you're building in the eyes of this hall of Famer But I mean it's just you know that you're missing to your point. Perhaps the most important hall of Famer in Jimmy Johnson. Oh for what? It's worth if you want to count this as a pro bowler by the way The head coach of the NFC pro bowl roster Barry Switzer so I mean you technically have a You know a pro bowl coach for what it's worth by the way. This is not related to the ninety four hours. But do you want to guess who the coach was the ninety? Four proble Wow now goes ways. Back Bill Cower. So we're talking the pro bowl after the ninety four season features. The super bowl coaches like. It's prophetic in that way. Because these two will all right That's kind of interesting. I don't know how many times that's ever happened now that I think about it. Hey Guy is going to get back to talking to the nineteen ninety-four Dallas cowboys in just a second. But before we do a quick break dear award from our sponsors welcome back everybody. Let'S GET BACK TO PAPA. Ocho right here on the Ocho but but yeah so. I mean this in all the responses that we got when we asked us on all the block on the boys platforms. A lot of people said ninety four. A lot of people said two thousand seven. A lot of people said two thousand fourteen. A lot of people said two thousand sixteen. You had another one that you wanted to talk about too though right. Not The ninety four I was. Yeah I know maybe I go back a little further than you know. Maybe the majority of fan base right now but Yeah I was thinking to seventy eight cowboys We were talking about Hall of Famers in Pro Bowlers. Will you know between the cowboys and steelers of that Super Bowl they had I think? Thirteen or fourteen eventual hall of Famers Between the two rosters and that was that was an incredible game. That was You know obviously Stock versus Bradshaw you know you had Just some some of the greater names and pro football history in that game. Franco Harris. Bradshaw Swan You had Tony Dorsett. You had Roger Staubach. I mean you had drew Pearson amies not a hall of Famer but still you know it'd be. Yeah he should be but I mean you know just a collection of outstanding talent on on that year as well to that point that game actually just got a new hall of Famer in Captain Crash Cliff Harris. Part of the two thousand twenty hall of Fame Class but so that game. I've said this before. That's maybe the greatest overall collection of talent that a single. Nfl game has ever seen And you know this is for our younger listeners. This is the Jackie Smith. Drop If you want to you know go relive that I mean that's up to you I don't know why you want to do that. But I mean that one of the more painful moments certainly in in Dallas cowboys history but But so you've got you also had you know the and we just talked the offensive side of the ball there but that's when he had mean Joe Greene and Company and Pittsburgh and the Doomsday Defense in Dallas. So I mean it was. It was just amazing. You know there was another great team. That should have won that game while to that point. So these these are just the cowboys hall of famers. All right and this is I mean again. Roger Staubach Tony set. That's too you could. I mean I don't WanNa see you can. Canham is half but drew Pearson should be in Again not a hall of Famer Tony Hill of the thrill very very very good Rayfield Wright it's your third hall of Famer on offense on defense again. I mean just this. Too Tall Jones is in on this defense randy White Harvey Martin again. I'm getting away from hall of famers necessarily. Dd Lewis. Charlie waters again cliff. Harris has mentioned. You're right Pittsburgh I mean these are these are the names on the steelers in this game Terry Bradshaw Rocky Bleier Franco Harris Lynn..

It was a great weekend for me. My family obviously my wife and I and our our dog abair. We are practicing social. Distancing didn't go anywhere Had Our celebration and spent some great time watching the two thousand and four masters on Saturday and the two thousand nineteen masters on Sunday and very pumped to have those on the DVR. For the rest of time. I don't care whatever happens to me. In my cable provider life never letting those go ever so good luck planners away from me so that was great and. I hope you had some some fun times with your family. You know your loved ones your kids. Whoever you spent the time with Hopefully it was a great and I'm really excited for this week here on the show and it blog on the boys dot com. You know we've had some some great guests over the last three weeks or starting now. What will hopefully be our fourth week with nothing but guess every day for you and in talking to various people. Both cowboys cowboys related. We've learned a lot of things we've had some great conversations we've learned about some certain players and a former cowboys player. And you know we talk to people outside of the NFL world. You know. We've talked to somebody from another. Nfl team we've just learned a lot. And I've really enjoyed kind of having those conversations and appreciate all the feedback. Everyone has given in terms of the last few weeks and hopefully are going to keep having that same level of fun but this week we're focusing on something very specific when it comes to the cowboys. This is theme week at SP nation and everyone's GonNa be looking back at the greatest teams in their franchise history. That did not win the Super Bowl. Now obviously the cowboys have won the Super Bowl five times. Nineteen seventy-one Seventy seven ninety two ninety three and ninety five. The cowboys lost three super bowls. There are plenty of great cowboys teams. That didn't even make to a super bowl. And so this is fascinating. And so I'm really really really pumped to dive into this and do it with some people that I think will offer some interesting insight and I tweeted this out on Sunday and just kind of open generic statement. You know who's the Best Dallas Cowboys team? That didn't win the Super Bowl and got a lot of responses on twitter and on instagram and on facebook and even had some people text me and offer their two cents in there are there are answers. That are more common than others right. I think we all tend to think of certain teams right. There's you can make an argument teams right and ultimately there are a handful really really really come to mind and so those are teams that we're going to be focusing on this week every day here on the. Ocho we're going to profile discuss one team in particular in Dallas cowboys history. That did not win the Super Bowl. We're going to cover. What you know are kind of the four. Most common answers for this question while also sprinkling in some teams that deserve some love as well. You know. Look we're limiting this four. You can't there's more than four teams in cowboys history. That we're very good. That didn't win the Super Bowl and we're going to go in chronological order and so of all the responses that we got the four most common where the nineteen eighty-four Dallas cowboys who lost the NFC championship game to the San Francisco. Forty niners that went on to win the Super Bowl. The two thousand seven Dallas Cowboys that lost in the division around to the New York giants that went on to win the Super Bowl. In fact they replayed Super Bowl. Forty two over the weekend where they beat the undefeated and officially not undefeated. New England Patriots. There's also the two thousand fourteen Dallas Cowboys which is an interesting answer. And we'll get to that as the week sort of unfolds who lost in the division around on the road at Lambeau field the Green Bay packers when Dez Bryant absolutely cut it and there is the two thousand Sixteen Dallas cowboys who also loss in the divisional round of the Green Bay packers although not on the road but at home at. At and T. Stadium in the first playoff game of the Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott era. Again you can make a case for a lot of teams. There's a lotta great couch teams over the course of cowboys history and we'll sprinkle those in as mentioned because we definitely want to cover them all. But these are the four that we're going to profile the most heavily the most deeply and explore in interesting ways. And so I've said before you know my cowboys fandom cowboys fan my whole life and I owe that to my dad. You know like a lot of people. That's how I sort of fell in love with the team and fell in love with sports and fell in love golf and things like that and so my dad and I love the cowboys in my dad's been on the show a lot. He's on this episode. And I thought it was. You know I thought it would be. Interestingly talked to him about the ninety four cowboys. Because you know somebody who who lived life at a different place than than at least. I did an ninety four. Maybe you did in nineteen ninety four and so we were getting the week started with Papa. Ocho people have been asking for him. Appreciate everybody asking for him. I know he does. But you know hey younger. Ocho is cool to. Let's just let's just you know. Let's let's make sure we all know that we all agree with that but in all seriousness very excited for you to hear the conversation that we had and in fact we were talking and kind of getting ready to do this the team that he also wanted to sprinkle in was the seventy eight Dallas cowboys. The nineteen seventy team that lost super bowl thirteen. And I've said before I kind of believe although I might feel differently about this now but you can make an argument that super super bowl thirteen is the greatest game ever played in. Nfl history from the perspective of talent on the field in one particular game. That's a subject that my dad and I got into so so. Yeah so let's go ahead and do it. I mean this is GonNa be fine. It's GONNA be painful it's GonNa make us cry and ultimately. I think we're going to have a good time and and hopefully we We all come out of this thing. You know loving the cowboys a little bit more. So go ahead and get to at my Dad Papa. Oh joins US next right here on the? Oj Am pleased to be joined by a very special guest? You know him you love him. The one the only the internationally famous my dad himself Papa. Oh Joe my best friend. What's going on my dude? Hey what's going on just fine here about you. I'm well. I think this is the first time you've been on since the quarantine happened across the world. So how's everything at home? It's good You know we're just trying to make the best of it the way the rest of the country is and You know learning some New ways of cooking new ways of just staying active within your own home so yeah I mean it's been. It's been an interesting experience and something that I feel needed to be done. So yeah we're good to go my My phone is full of photos of the meals. The union have cooked. What has been the one enjoyed? The most odd may sound a little basic but I mean it is something I I really like and that's homemade burgers and You know I've just tried just tried a few little things and quirks and changes and tweaks on what I've used to What I used to do before and so you know now. I'm getting better at it. So yeah just homemade burgers They're the best it's fast. It's easy it's quick and you know you can change it up a bit and none of them are bad You know obviously you know. I've had these before but you have a dish in the Burger family. That is pretty well known burger dogs. You haven't haven't gone down that rabbit hole in the middle of all this. No we didn't do that Because we've been kind of You know using the traditional Patty type Shape but now. I Love Burger dogs as well. It's really same concept everything that you know the tweaks I'm talking about has been within the meat so you know whether it's Rounds shape or rectangular shape Certainly doesn't make a difference. It can certainly but yeah. Burger dogs are are the bomb for anybody who didn't connect to into a burger. Dog is literally just hamburger shaped like a hot dog and you eat a hot dog on and it sounds like it's not that big of a deal but it is trust us so hopefully you get a chance to have some dogs maybe will Be Able to go down that avenue here shortly So it is theme week across espionage and the this week is kind of Greatest teams that never really were in each franchise history and obviously blocking the boys. We cover the cowboys. And you and I love the cowboys and unfortunately there are a lot of options when you start to consider the greatest Dallas cowboys teams. That did not win the Super Bowl. I tweeted about this on Sunday by the way we're recording on Sunday evenings so happy Easter to you. Mom and I you know there was a lot of responses. I think you know it was all like. There's a majority of responses in particular directions and what team jumps to the front of your mind when you think greatest cowboys teams. That didn't get Lombardi trophy. Well you know. For a number reasons I think the Ninety four cowboys is probably the one that jumps because it jumps right to the front because that was like a slam dunk it. Was You know a team that it was already you know superbowl caliber already? Super Bowl winners And then eventually came back on the following year. So you know all you have to do is just you know. Extend that consistency with that continuity one more year and and then you know I think that the The opponent and in that Super Bowl also made a somewhat of a slam dunk so that. Yeah the chargers I mean you know it virtually A lot of teams could have beat the chargers. And you know Ford. The forty niners walloped over them. So you know I think that for those reasons You know what I what I think. I would assume that a lot of people including myself the probably highlight that team as the most likely to have one one And they should have one that You know obviously They didn't get there because they lost the the champ the NFC championship game. But yeah I mean that was an incredible team like I said it was already superbowl caliber. number of hall of fame players on there. So yeah I mean I I think that's what jumps to the forefront me so one of my favorite. Nfl films sound bytes. All time has to do with the nineteen ninety four season and it sucks because it comes at the expense of the cowboys but Steve Young in the Americas game that chronicles the ninety four niners. He talks about how that team he says. We showed up to training camp to beat the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC championship. And I just I love that. I love that it was this. Foregone conclusion that the cowboys in forty niners. The season didn't even matter. You know what I mean..

That's always necessary when it comes to this time of year because everything is fluid everything is changing sometimes something POPs up. Sometimes you know whatever and for what it's worth we let you know this all the time. If a big enough thing happens you can bet your bottom dollar that we will jump on. We will get an emergency episode of the Ocho as soon as we can again if the event warns it so if a particular Dallas cowboys signs you know with the team we did get a signing by the way on Monday. Going to get to that in a little bit. We'll Jim Bob will have an episode kind of analyze that and talk about that and then we'll have a lot more stuff everywhere mixture kind of course blocking the boys dot com follow us on twitter blog on the boys instagram blogging. Dot The boys and go like us on facebook you can get access to all of our content in all of those places but last Monday march second that was we talked about this on Mondays episode last Monday. Espn reported the cowboys. Offer to Dak Prescott. This was the Monday after the combine was about thirty three million dollars per year. Now we've talked about this ad nauseam but that does not necessarily put Dak Prescott among the top paid quarterbacks in the position of obviously puts them near the top. But not in the top. Three if you care about that if that's important to you. I know it is not to a lot of you on Friday last Friday just half a week ago. The Dallas Morning News reported that contract offer included one hundred five million dollars guaranteed that is also outside of the top three when it comes to quarterback now had a fantastic listener respond This on Sunday evening as I was watching the Galaxy Union game. It was interesting but obviously this is all new money. This isn't a case to do with Jared Goff or Carson Wentz where those are extensions are all new money figures as Dak Prescott is currently not under contract with the Dallas cowboys that is important to note however even though it is more new money it is not necessarily something that puts him on par with his peers which is in terms of the market in terms of Business terms and financial values. That is an important thing anyway. So this past Monday yesterday on March ninth. Espn reported again. Espn's Todd Archer about the thirty three million dollar figure we wrote about this for you. Log ONTO DOT com. So you'RE GONNA head on over there and read it. Here is what Todd Archer wrote with the franchise. Tag deadline coming Thursday. That's this Thursday. By the way we'll get to that in a second. The cowboys have sent a new proposal to the agent of Dak Prescott in hopes of kickstarting talks on a multi year. Deal according to a source. Russell Wilson and Ben Rothlisberger have the highest average salaries followed by Aaron Rodgers. Jared Goff the cowboys. New proposal would likely at least be in the Rogers. Golf neighborhood if not more since Prescott side turned down thirty three million dollars. Now look at this. And these are the top five quarterbacks in terms of annual average. This is how much money they are paid per year. All of these figures are courtesy of over the CAP DOT COM. The best source for salary information when it comes to the National Football League. Russell Wilson leads the way thirty five million dollars per year for the Seattle Seahawks quarterback super bowl winning seahawks quarterback minds. You live people believe that to be an important factor here Ben Rothlisberger who missed the majority of last season is number two on that list. Thirty four million dollars per year for Big Ben Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff both calbears by the way shot into my puppy bear. Incidentally both tie for third with thirty three and a half million dollars per year thirty three point five million dollars per year. Philadelphia's Carson Wentz. I mentioned the Union is a union of the Seoul. I already forgot but either way I watched a soccer match. You get my point on Sunday night between La in Philadelphia. It was a three three draw with great but anyway Carson Wentz is fifth on that list technically four. If you count the tie for third at thirty two million dollars per year now. You might have heard that again Russell. One thirty five Ben is to at thirty four Rogers and Gov tied for thirty three and a half Carson at thirty two now the offer Dak Prescott is reportedly thirty three million dollars per year. And I know I know I know. I know that. That's a lot of money but it is low. It is low. The reality is that that is low. Imagine if you were selling a car right I mean people come up with all sorts of analogies this time of year but imagine if you were selling a car and the market rate for that car other cars with that mileage. If it was a used car you know it was that age. How if you're selling a twenty seventeen? Whatever I dunno makeup making model and everything was kind of the same mileage and I know that the mileage argument is different because Russell Wilson and Ben Rothlisberger a better conditions. They want super bowls. And Aaron. Rodgers to blah blah. The point is if you're looking at the market and somebody offered you much less than the going rate. You would balk at that right. You would say no way not going to sell you this for less than the going rate. And that's the issue here with that press now. It is worth mentioning in Todd. Archers report that the last thing of it says the cowboys new proposal would likely at least be the Rogers and Goth neighborhood if not more since. Prescott side turned down thirty. Three million are so the original report when it comes all this over the last eight days or so was that it was at thirty three million dollars per year so todd archer to report or to speculate. I should say that the new proposal would likely at least be in the Rodgers and golf neighborhood. That neighborhood is thirty. Three and a half million dollars per year so that means conceivably the Dallas cowboys have climbed a whole half a million dollars on their contract offer. That ain't going to get it done. I mean I hate to be dramatic and I hate to sort of frame it that way but if your offer is thirty three and you say you war as down all right did you win. Awry deck will come up to thirty three and a half. That ain't going to get it done. And what's more this contract? We've talked about this before to the cowboys. Usually do at least five year extensions with their core nucleus sort of cornerstone players. Tyrants Miss Zack. Martin Zeke Elliott demarcus Lawrence. Made everybody that is a core player. Does Brian guys extension. They're all at the very least five extensions so if we're to assume right and now this is an assumption that it's a five year extension. The cowboys are proposing it act Prescott and they opted half a mill. That's two and a half million dollars more. They added onto the life of the overall contract. That is not enough cheese cheese. I got to play the NACHOS here. You don't come in just dribble a little bit of cheese. I WANNA whole slab cheese. Put the whole block of cheese on there and put it in the microwave for two minutes and let it melt all over. That's not enough and the cowboys seem to think that they can win this staredown with that. Prescott and that is just not going to happen. He has all of the leverage. And maybe there's incremental growth. Maybe the cowboys are prepared to come up to this. Maybe prepared to go up to that now. I will say if the cowboys climbed to thirty four million dollars. That isn't maybe I don't know it's hard to determine what's fair what's now because all ultimately is up to Dak Prescott and his team but if the cowboys are up to thirty four million dollars on an annual average value basis and they top jared. Goff's guarantees because remember the guarantee here is important in terms of total guaranteed money. Jared Goff has made the most of all quarterbacks one hundred and ten million dollars total guaranteed Carson. Wentz got one hundred seven point nine. Russell Wilson got one hundred and seven Matt Ryan. One hundred years ago Aaron Rodgers. Got Ninety. Eight point two. If you're telling me if I'm Dak Prescott hypothetically and you say look we're going to offer you thirty four million dollars period we know. That's only half a million more per season. Jarod Goff but you're technically beating right. We're technically giving you the going rate and we're going to give you more in total guarantees.

"The only projects on the Internet counts? I am one of your host Jesse Jackson. Today we have junior mob Scotland to do and we are Scotland. Now we don't know for how long he may make a surprise shocking appearance at some point in the middle of the ticket. Drop with the opening and closing studio back. You so you know. We're all about being timely. Here you can count on a new episode every week from us. That was that forty seven months ago so in that spirit. Like are the cowboys. Ever GonNa get ready Jason Garrett predicts not only will they get rid of him but they will hire former packer coach. Mike McCarthy order your first. How shot shoe shops? You yes as record this as February eighth. It is the Saturday after the Super Bowl and he did want to talk a few minutes about the cowboys. So the less said about our last season better. very disappointing season. All around. I don't think of it that way. I feel this may have been the most productive season in the last ten years because it actually brought about change. That was probably warranted five years ago. That's a good week finally got around more to doing the one thing that would move this franchise forward five years too late but now can actually turn the page and look forward to a writer feature if if Garrett was coming back next season I would have the same hopelessness that I felt for the last ten ten years so I think this is a good thing for Isis. Planning offering myself and put a bullet in it. I liked juniors take because other than that. You can't look at the season as anything but just a crushing disappointment. But he's right. I mean it's one of those things where you finally got what you've been needing for a long time because up to now. Eight eight wasn't bad enough for Jerry to take action and Steven. It's still actually bucked. The trend because we didn't have a losing season and yet we were forced. Our hand was forced to do something about it. I thought for sure Jerry was just going to stay. Stay the course. It's quite possible that Stephen put Jerry and headlock. You know against your take on it. It just seems like another wasted season and yes already is a successful off season because we change but just when I look at football season you just get a sixteen game goal and just it was. Ota wasted opportunity because the NFC east has never been worse the NFC is a hole. The weren't really any unbeatable. Transcendent San Francisco is very good. There were a couple of good teams. But there was there for the taking. You know it wasn't like last year with the rams were juggernaut. Taking is the way it is. You look at the cowboys wins in the nineties and those were against stack. Nfc East's different. Chris and I were watching the NFC championship game. He just looked at me and said you know we're we're not anywhere close to forty niners but I do think that if things click competitive because APEC district because I think we are. I think the margin of error between eight and eight twelve and four in the NFL period but probably specifically this year in the NFC is just not that great. You know you watch the Games and you'll watch teams that finish date. Nate beating teams that finished. Unisex twelve for whatever. And you know. It's just little things and for us to be as incredibly poorly coached as we were or maybe as incredibly mediocre who coached as we were to be that and still end up eight nate with a realistic shot at nine and seven. Ten and six. And you have to think. There's no way you get there without just having straight up town on the field while bolger weighed almost making the playoffs. In spite of the fact that you get zero out of your countries I mean just the different kicker alone. We were talking about this earlier. Could've put us in the playoffs? You're very easily this year that they were terrible. In one score games they were like one in six thousand seven last year. They couldn't went. Couldn't lose the one scoring and this year they could win one so a lot ass kicking lots coaching. Now I for one will be sad not to see. Maher lineup anymore because I was really enjoying seventy or Netherland it from three. That is worn bad..

"Welcome back. Euro art show seven five Mr. two time SuperBowl champion Tony could see us in. Tony. We are appropriately named the seven five because the Dallas Cowboys are seven and five my friend.

We're like ready to bury this team and now four straight win enforce straighten role. And then the big match up this week hit versus the eagles. Let's just kinda kinda keep it there. But I I love your your heads go on. And I like that about you. You're the king of the irony of the show. Hey, you know, I'm the irony. You're the Super Bowl champion. That's the way it works. And speaking of before we really dive in on everything that happened were talking after the Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints, and that night was so awesome. And it got started with nineteen Ninety-three Super Bowl champion team. You guys being honored on the field about five minutes before? Kickoff tweeted some photos of you. That was great we shot a video with your teammates. What was that? Like, I gotta ask. Right. Oh, s I I wanna know. Well, you know, what I think every time you go back to something like that twenty five years. First of all this worse time gone. And it's been that long since we complice greatness as a team, and, you know, just Altima accomplishment and to get back in that setting. You know, we had it last year. And I think it's great Jerry does, you know, every twenty years while everybody most everybody's around this kinda in celebrate a monumental thing. And and again, it's always great to see guys that you did so much. With blood, sweat, and tears. You hear that all the cliche? But just the just everything that the intimacy that only you can share the elements of that. And I think that that was pretty cool in the guys that you haven't seen something as liberal here locally, and we see cross cross pass. But to be able to see in that setting in Bill to celebrate that now we'll say this. I did feel a little older it is it is twenty five years. So it kind of puts everything in perspective. But it's a it's a timeless and ageless accomplishment. And you know, what this look at like the Kevin Gauguin's. The Russell Maryland's the. James Washington's obviously, the triplets and everything that, you know, happen. It's just it's just it's a magical night and the top at all that the cherry on top the just that display of dominant dominance over a team like the saints, and then not be remiss about it mentioned the induction gillibrand to the ring of honor. And you just couldn't ask for better nine made. It was tremendous tremendous experience. I I loved CNN. It was so great. You mentioned all the guys that were there. I think it was really cool to see not just former players but Martinez wife. She's well chronicled in the great wall of Dallas football episodes. So cool. She was so just just from my perspective. She was so graceful in the moment, it was just an awesome moment. To celebrate. What people love about the Dallas Cowboys. So it's really cool to see when I gotta ask. When was the last time you had slipped on the seven five, you know, because..

"You very much. What are we this year? Twenty seven of very young sixteen very, very well. Indeed. Congratulations. That's awesome. That's all landmark achievements.

A brand new wide receiver. Amari Cooper, initial thoughts, initial thoughts, your thoughts on Twitter? Periscope, in the ball of the boy's face mcglinchey a like it eastbound. My fantasy team celeb- means I liked him for some time. I really thought that he was a fast receiver, two time pro bowler. You know, certainly, I think if the Cowboys were thinking about getting the wide receiver with their number one pig next year on next year's draft. I mean, I don't think that you can go into that draft thinking that they're going to beat somebody better or get somebody better than Amari Cooper. That's a great way to go. It's a fantastic move. I think to get him now take advantage of him now. You know, you're only seven games into the season this year? Yeah. I like the move for the player. I like Amari Cooper. There's really a lot to like it's hard to swallow the first round pick with you. I agree with everybody. It's really hard to swallow. It doesn't. It's not. It's not easy to swallow, but I think you can understand the logic when you frame it the way you just well, if you had committed the going to have to receiver with your first round pick next year, which is. I don't say a finite way to look at things, but it's been, it's been a tunnel vision for being honest..
