Cowboys Defensive End DeMarcus Lawrence Will Miss 6-8 Weeks With Broken Foot
"Going on with the cowboys. Upfront what can you tell me about. Tank lawrence randy gregory. Big game for the cowboys here in los angeles against the chargers. What do you know about that. Yeah so i. I think like the you know demarcus lawrence obviously. That's a really unfortunate break for them. And he's had injuries in the past. And i i don't know if i'd relates that because there's a foot thing and it's sort of a free thing but he's going to be gone for two months and that like to me. I just sort of looking at how patchwork they've been and they'll get gregory back but like like you know with randy gregory and then over the years taking swings on different guys like alden smith and and and and You know and and if you want to go further back hardy And how they've just sort of continuous roll the dice try and get those positions right And lawrence was the one that they really hit on and now he's out for two months and you know. I think the cowboys defensively did a lot of things well in the opener but the fact is such a big part of the way that defense worked and i worked and i think dan coins a fantastic defensive coordinator but a big part of how the defense works seattle type of defense works is. Can you get heat on the pass or can you come from multiple angles quarterback and lawrence is one of those guys when he's at his best. He changes the math for everybody else. He's gonna change the matchups. He's going to get more guys singled up or guys are going to be favourable spa favorable spot because of him. So now you take them out of the equation and i think it's a big big loss for the cowboys.

"Apd for deal right right. The laws looking for law right. Because he's nowhere to be found. How many times have you said okay. Maybe too many times. I agree with you and your favorite website pro football focus ranked him last year. The fourth best edge not just rusher but edge player in football. And i'm like. I don't remember that because all i can remember is that cleveland came into jerry world and ran for three hundred seven yards it. Does he takes some blame for that. Back we've gotta take a little bit of rare for me to ninety five to ninety two sixty one on monday night football at gerry. World d. law on the field started every day. Okay randy gregory the other night you know how much i love him because i only love his potential. I think he's got pro bowl potential now that seems to have gotten himself clean and straight and knocking on wood for him. Scott cold okay. So but the point is he did play on thursday night at go right and he had one good rush early in the game. That caught my eye. I'm like here. We go and then what happened. Nothing happened he wound up with one. Tackle the rest of the game. No quarterback pressures tackle philosophy zeros across the board review reading. Remember him in the game. He played thirty seven snaps. What happened all the rest of de law he had the one hammer hammered the ball rojas hands and it was a big play in the game and i loved it and he wound up with five tackles which the way they were playing the other night. That was actually pretty great. But he had zero sacks. Zero tackled for losses. Zero hits on the quarterback. Well as a team they had zero sacks. We'll skip if you if you take. Gregor you take out d law and you say well. They came up to hand it then. It's not like your backup for better than those guys going tomorrow in brazil. Okay but arsim excuse me to bash dorrance armstrong probably in terrell bash. I do like i do. Like armstrong what jerry's raved about him. So i'm saying okay. Let's give him. A shot can be any worse than zeros across the board. I don't think so right so just remind. People was a fourth round. Pick out of kansas in two thousand eighteen and he did start three games last year and he does have a career two and a half sacks big whoop but the point is let's give him a shot and the only thing i know about drove basham is that we signed him at dirt. Cheap money just for bargain-basement grant money as a free agent and he was a third round. Pick of the colts back in two thousand seventeen immediately got cut by the colts and he gets picked up by the jets and he had a few flashes he does have a career seven and a half sacks. Okay so i'll go with that but the only thing i really know about him is hard knocks. I think it was the second episode. He's doing stand up comedy and it was. It was not very funny. Would agree like i kept wanting to even chuckled. I couldn't even get a chuckle going but he did impersonate. Guess who damarcus lar- well now he's got literally be demarcus lawrence. So you can do is voice. Can you do is sax right can you. Because listen de law made the pro bowl in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen years ago but but still can you step in. Maybe so maybe he'll give a little jolt that those guys could to the could do de la was really good against roy. Although those games that you highlighted y'all be indicative of how well he can play winning just running completely away not complete with cover remember the reverse came to his side that ended up being the touchdown to ob j. Yeah i just think the thing is the questions. Basham is a smaller guy who basically the cowboys love his potential. Is he going to be able to hold up on. The run side of it de la was tremendous at the run. He did a very good job. Now i agree with you. I don't know what this fourth-best edge rusher of the entire donald where that came from need but okay but with greg. Skit with gregory andy. Let's give you give you that. You got four turnovers but you still gave up thirty. One boys used to top rated still threw for three seven nine and turtle came from pressures. It wasn't like you've got the ball of time. Bring saying you really caught it up. There was none of that. You chased him off this spot and he threw wild pick right right okay so my point is new coordinator dan quinn. This is what the hell game to me. This is where you just throw everything out the window. And you've basically throw the kitchen sink at that young quarterback and you just bliss the hell out of you got michael. Parsons just unleashed the beast. Just just let him fly because he's probably the best rusher on the field right the best pass now you. You are willing to rob peter to pay paul because you gotta have to sacrifice the back you like anthony binding single coverage you like those guys other than trayvon and other than digs you like those guys in coverage okay. Do you want slow death or quick. You know like. I don't you're up against it now. The odds are screaming that you are what you said in big trouble against justin herber and company. We're gonna talk about mike. Williams took a shot at the secondary and keenan allen and okay they. They converted fourteen of nineteen third downs against a really good washington front. So this game isn't about your defense is game. I'm saying on defense. I give it up to where if i'm dan quinn. I'm just gambling all day and all night. I'm just sending people from. That's why you paid that. The big got it away agreed. Okay so there are lots of ways to skin his cat though to speak but one way is to as bill parcells said before the giants super bowl remember he. He said against buffalo against the k. Gun we've got to shorten the game. Great okay one. Thing i did. The other night was he was incredibly deadly accurate with the football. Right okay. cd lamb. You cannot drop another pass. Dropped three the other night. You made three big plays. That almost cancelled them out. But you can't drop the pass and little. Cedric wilson is going to be in the slot and place. The gal okay catch six or eight balls underneath that they get first downs and obviously amaury can be amari. Best route runner and pro football. Maybe he can get loose for a couple of touchdowns and the offensive. Line that steel kid. He played okay last year. I think he could be pretty good. And the way i kept raving about connor mcgovern in places. Zack martin awry guard. He was sensational. Well guess what. He played at penn state for all year. He was these center. Well what's the week lincoln. The line right now. it's just. I think he got it handed to him the other night. He's the week lincoln. That line what if they quietly have moved mcgovern over to center this week. We'll maybe that'll short up. Because zack martin is back. I he was going to be the beta. Okay the veda and vague on hand to a lot of people. He's he's going to push them in the past because he is the biggest strongest force in the league. The way i look at this what would concern me even if my office plays well and it's a one possession game. Do you feel comfortable at the end of the game. That you're going to be able to generate enough pressure and keep the charge of for me. The time the game winning the game do not. I do not agree. You can't get in that position right but upsets happened because we saw all over the landscape in week one so if you do end up four or five point underdog listless go right and mike williams is laughing at the secondary. Let's go suck it up. Let's play a little over our helmets. This time you're going to have to. Let's hope that that answer is completely back. As the leader of this franchise he's.

The big question is about the giants going in because of the way they lost week. One to the broncos daniel jones had the big fumble week one but he does he the offense the team. They're going to be okay. We all believe we can do it. You know we we've got to execute and be more consistent with it. I think situationally we gotta be better. In certain areas don't fumble that would suck catch the trent dilfer comments on daniel jones where he was really really. Yeah pool is sean him. It'd be like one of the great civil time. Yeah like what are the best in football. I think we all think that daniels terrific kathleen and there are times where you say yourself. Wow he's pretty damn good and then there are those other times like wh- what are you doing now. Maybe they should get trento for here to scream at them on the sideline Could do that you scream at high school kids. Y'all that's right. But then when i got screamed at so what do we care. Screaming at a kid and then picking them up and physically gymnasts mass grabbed. I did. I got my face mask impact other. Yeah i don't think it was picked up and moved. Your is different. Though man right back then anything went now. It's it's a great attempt and right. I strike. Yeah we were. You're really working hard. We love good about yourself told you that i love you. I love yeah. Here's saquon barkley. So he's questionable. He tells us why two games five days. I don't think the schedules ideal for Coming back off a major knee injury. Two games back to back. But that's that's what it is That's what's in front of me. And that's the challenge tonight mrs pussy. Feathers goodness fair. We'll see i knew the day running appointment. Look he was worried about his near at all. I mean he was running. A couple of times took a shot directly on the knee. Did cotton was cutting great. You know maybe cut in london for me down that deadly metlife turf as well remember how much the niners were there. Last year it was at san francisco. Now here's taylor heineke. He's going to get the start. Or shall i call them. Taylor boomer heineke. He won't get ahead of himself. Really try and take it one day at a time when meeting at a time when play at a time man right. there's impact that i'm having. I always say that pressure is a privilege right and by the way this thirteen game stretch for the yankees critical. It's boring itself out again. That's why am i right or wrong. I don't know. I just see things a little bit differently than you do. A here is chase young. I thought this was a really good quote in terms of heineke making start. Lots of confidence in them. We know where he can do. Think startling Any other team in elite on so. hey let's pump. The breaks any other team in leo team out homes out herbert out jones out. Shout out buddy out. You're out taylor heineke. He's taken over. But if you tell heineke gotta be happy here in that i would think so aqua. He's on my team. Chase is that. I don't run around away from him. Evanston graham will miss the game with the calf injury for the giants. Speaking of injuries demarcus lawrence reportedly out six to eight weeks broke his foot and so the story comes out that leon lett broken ankle at practice. My first vote is leeann. Let plate for the cowboys. And he's a coach. Now what are we talking about. So i don't know what the hell happened there practice yesterday. But leon let was carted off the field and demarcus. Lawrence apparently broke his leg. Got to have some of the worst luck. Maybe maybe it's they have to. Yeah well i know in frisco. I know outside. I think that's a grass field. I don't know where they were practising yesterday. But anyhow what the hell happened. Leon lett and dexter lawrence. Both what were they doing. I were they demarcus lawrence. I don't i really don't know. I don't know what the hell happened yesterday. All i know is leeann. Let the word was in the morning that he got hurt at practice. Almost carted off. Okay fine and then last night. I'm seeing the cowboy reporters for the cowboys defense. I didn't think it could be worse than it's going to be this week. And i'm like he was just a coach. Yeah like are ready. Gregory cova got it. And then you find out the marc lawrence has a broken so whatever. So he's out raiders if they They play the chargers this right in. La raiders defensive tackle. Gerald mccoy suffered a season ending knee injury in the win. Monday night over the ravens and here's jaguars head coach. Urban meyer remind you. This is after week. One as he's the head coach of the jaguars. This job was the kind of your dream jobs. The right scenario Unfortunately for us. Some rumors came out yesterday in connecting us. Usc job during the refute it. There's no chance. I'm here and committed to try to build a organization. Mary go and by the way when he said that. I'm here. In committed to build an organization he put his head straight down to the ground started. Mumbling will make contact with anybody. So you're thing so he's going to go through a long season and it's gonna drive him crazy but he still has trevor lawrence then next year you know maybe they get the who knows nine and eight ten and seven whatever and he'll be a lot better position in three years from now they'll be on their way to super bowl. Maybe and then you can take this particular interview and hold onto it and then compare it to an interview. Two years from now That is a very positive. Take i think most people see him already in. Think he's not gonna make it through this season. Yeah i know that jason lockenfora reported that that he's already a maniac over every drill and coaches. Do man that's who they are. I'm in charge and i'm large. So get the hell out of the way there. You go and i'm large margin last night in baltimore an expected result. Although it didn't go the way you thought it would go. The yankees did not put up a bunch of runs. They lead to one in the eight. They give up the lead there down three two and then with a couple of guys on.

"Parsons gonna get lot more action on the edge here in you know it's you know and then you're going to see really how much doorns armstrong developed. I mean he looked good in the preseason. But know that doesn't always indicate that you're gonna show up in the regular season so You know bradley. And i you know. We're gonna see you know chauncey goals this this opportunities guys here and you wish they weren't trying figure out what they were going to do in week. Two doodoo cova in due to your best player have an injury. But there's going to be guys and there's going to be opportunities and you think he's gonna scheme up some you know some some blitzes and just different looks that we're going to have to fight because i think they're going to get unique in the way they find pressure Bobby give us Give us a pep talk. The cowboys are cowboys. Fans should not feel like the season is over because and you can't say anything as it relates to dak prescott pep talk got. That's a terrible decision on your part I would say Rephrase the question. The question again cowboys fans should feel like the season is not over because in. Your answer can't have anything to do with scott. How tony i'm coming for unix. Because randy ray you guys can't copy each other. So bobby you got the benefit because because i mean randy gregory is out a game But it's not like you've lost. Lost your pass. Rushers for the entire season You've got never gallimore will be back at some point. They were really i him. I i think you're still going to be able to get past. You're still going to see trayvon. Digs grow kelvin. Joseph still needs to come back there. There's some guys there's respect yeah you know. Divide there's some guys that are going to be coming back down the road that'll make things easier for them But i mean overall the offense is really good. And i think the players believe in dan quinn and away they never believed mike mullen and so the defense just on efforts and chemistry. I think is going to be better. And that's all they needed to be competitive. This year was just better than terrible. Howman same question. You can't copy bobby or anything to do with tech prescot. I'm going to say that it's it's not all lost because their head coach in their defensive coordinator. Have both done this before in one of super bowl dan quinn's case he's he has won multiple times but he's been to the super bowl multiple times. These guys know what it takes to get there. They they they may not be the best coaches out there. Obviously dan is not a head coach anymore but they've been through it. They know what they know what it takes and they know that that injuries happen and the teams that go to the super bowl or the ones that can overcome it. Good answers Tony i'm spare. You change the question. What's not fair. what would you say tony to the demarcus the hype that hates demarcus lawrence because there are a lot like all there are tons of tweets out there. I now like. I got a tweet when i was you know everybody but i tweeted it out and then about it and somebody said oh no. We're going to miss out on three six. What's what's your statement to these people telling you about get you know you're about to find out how wrong you were right in science and this feels like the people that last year like andy dalton could lead this offense wrong then and you know what i mean and they're wrong now so if those are the same group of people then over for two in the last two years in their hot takes you know democracy without a doubt without you know without question. This team is not better. Without demarcus lawrence what he does on the stats feet is miniscule compared to how his effort in his run game and how he plays the game as a whole team is not better without it. And i would hate to say you know. We're about to learn our lesson but you know. Hopefully i'm wrong in somebody. You know If somebody comes up in the ranks and they play well but we're about to find out what this team looks like without him. Let's put this thing down. Flip in reverse it. Tony cowboys charges. Who wins sunday now that we know this news. I'm still on the cowboys. I you know huby. We shall not name right. You said. don't mention it. Don't mention his name so it was just okay. Dak prescott in this offense can shoot out with anybody right. This defense seems to be more opportunistic whether they drop in your lap or not there around the football more. There's more talent. there dan. Quinn is simplifying the scheme and putting them in more advantageous spots. I think they can win. Any football game. And i would not be surprised to see them. Still pull the went out common. I'm still going with the cowboys for the same reasons that tony said i. I liked justin herbert. But i think that's a better quarterback and more importantly he's in a better scheme right now because herbert is going to be going on game two with his offense coordinator in a very different from what he did last year whereas daqing killing go way back. We know what they can do when they're when they're working together robert I also believe in four god but that's not why Like i i mean you're always going to be competitive with him..

"You don't want it to be that one at the very least but tony what is thought. Or what is your thought on. Demarcus lawrence bobby has to step away from the stream. By the way he's he's gonna use all the money that alex has been thrown at best on the chats. But tony what is your thought on the culture in what it will be like without demarcus lawrence because so many people have talked about like. Oh this team doesn't have a leader on defense. People refuse to give democracies that crown. I think it's worth mentioning and everyone the stream. I know you're gonna freak out about this. But they lost tyrone crawford over the offseason. Who retired something. Mike mccarthy actually blundered to be fair when he accidentally told everybody but So they are down and not that he was a great player but he was unquestionably their leader. Sean lee retired in the offseason. Now demarcus lawrence has gone lose. the most. Who's the randy. Gregory gregory is on the leadership council. That was a big story. Throughout training camp the naval gallimore one of the most talented players on that defense is out. I mean is it a stretch to say that the guy is mike parsons in his second. Nfl game like who who. Who does that defense too. Because jalen smith wants it to be him but who do. They actually turned out. I mean you stole my thunder with that because that was kind of where i was going with it. Mike parsons right. They already give him the green dot calling plays on the defensive huddle the you know as you look at it. Demarcus lawrence is the best player on the defense whether he gets the credit. Whether it's the disrespect is there or not. The facts remain the same. The team is different. The defense runs differently when he's not out there and he's that type of person that you know. I think that the locker room respects him immensely right so when he says something you listen you can. And that's what i kinda loved about the hard knocks. There wasn't many big storylines or anything like that. But you've got to see our democracy to his teammates and you got to see how he interacted with the younger guys were fighting for position For for fighting for a job To answer your question mike parsons. It seems that he's got the attitude he's got the moxie he doesn't have an issue with You know mingling with these guys and you know. He's got enough confidence in his play. I could see him getting his. And i i mean i don't know if he's era kinda guy but we're i mean we're gonna find out in this week two game exactly who they're gonna lean on because that guy is no longer going to be on the field that's a great point That kind of made you made as well Your back just in time for alex's latest super chats says mike mccarthy drafted cd mica jason graft after talk interest and we don't have to relitigate the drafting of those. I know that upsets. Bobby no no no no. I'm just saying. I'm just saying like i think no i'm not gonna go get saying. I don't think it's fair to say jason drafted those guys meinhard. Does in fact. Mike mccarthy had very little to do with the twenty twenty class because he had just come into the job three months earlier. Scouts had been working on that board for an entire year. That i just wanna clear that. That's very much a different issue. I don't think you can give the head coach any credit mud much credit for who gets picked. A different office said that he hadn't met He didn't meet my. Mike parsons before they drafted him so he's not as involved as will mcclay or any of the scouts. All the great points i mean. Everybody wants to disparage mike. Mccarthy you guys just mean. That's what it is i'll just mean negative is can i ask you something are jay and tony and david i am. I was looking at us. We're talking about how like raji reference that this game against the chargers. It's one of the you know less meaningful games on the schedule ultimately but given that washington did lose to them last week and that is one of the top tiebreakers. If you're tied head to head you're tied the division. The next thing is common opponent. so is this game. More sneakily important to potential tiebreakers down the road now that washington's loss. Who do you want to answer it. I delegate has just around here okay. i'm glad you brought that up because When i looked at the schedule until tallahassee. I i figured the cowboys in the first two games had to come out of their one in one right. I figured out the right out the gate. I figured if they're not going to lose the if they're gonna lose the tampa bay. The half found a way to win the los angeles game because there are some the are some winnable games coming up after that so you hit the nail on the head with right. Washington loses his game. You kind of gain ground on them. They got to see a qb situation that you know is less than ideal and yeah i mean one hundred percent. You want to win the football game so i do personally think this game is going to be a little more important than what kind of giving a credit for bobby. They're gonna shut up. You I think i think it's a good point to bring up. I think it's it obviously makes the game important but at the end of the day i mean. The of the playoffs is very simple. You win you win your division you get in and they're playing in a fairly weak division At least last year was weakened looks to be similarly week this year and you know take care division games and that's gonna be what gets you there. Rj you may speak now So i'm gonna go direction that i didn't anticipate going on but i've been partly swayed by each of you so great job to all of you. I think this is important. And i hate to make this about like narrative. This is important because like what we've talked about like the culture. The who you are know what i mean like if you go out and and some of you mentioned earlier bobby depends on like how you win. Lose like if they lose. Just what if justin herbert like throws for five hundred dollars. So you'd have like maybe just ran into like an elite performance but if they go and they win such a powerful thing especially to your point the week after they'd be washington not only pan or beat them but their offensive line. Handled the pass rush. Maybe maybe they get you know they had. The washington had the lowest pass rush rate against the chargers than anybody else. That across the entire. Nfl in week one. So what if the cowboys show up entail basham endurance armstrong show up in like kick their ass. I mean that's a huge boost of momentum for a stretcher games is not. it's not necessarily going to be difficult but it does kind of announce yourselves not anyone but even to yourself. You walk a little taller. You feel a little bit bolder. And i don't want to say this team hasn't had that win. The mike mccarthy era because there is so small and short but the kind of haven't had that win i mean i don't count any of the i think the win in minnesota last year was really powerful because they came off the by the watermelon smashing. You hated that. Bobby trapped loved it so i think that was really really powerful but you know all of the momentum that tragically got taken away from them and things came about rightly so more about football or more about life than about football again rightly so so if you look at their they have one win with mike mccarthy and dak prescott that he played the entire game and and it was the watermelon kick game right and that was fun and exhilarating in dramatic and cool but it wasn't like a high quality win..

"That would be the literal outside of that had you ever. I mean i was asked the question. The super chat on the line. You know what i mean. I don't wanna not take the super chat seriously for the pittsburgh game right. It's two and a half hours before kickoff and might regard these just standing over by the tunnel at one of the pittsburgh guys cubs up coaches and talks to for thirty minutes. And the guy leaves. Ed mccarthy just kills time for the next thirty thirty five minutes until he got out there to warm up his hamsters kaffir or whatever is bugging him last year. But i've never seen a coach come out at all. Got hang around the field. Three hours before kickoff spent an hour just sitting out there doing nothing. It's just been most and you just you talk to people and you hear stuff about from green bay and even stuff now and there's a little bit of a question of like what is it that he's got his hands and he's not even making the calls on special teams. He's letting his special teams coordinator with a headset. Make those decisions. He's letting kellyn run everything on. It's dan quinn. Does everything on defense. This very little that he feels. He's got his hands in. This feels like the conversation that encircle jason garrett kind of circa twenty fourteen right like what's he doing could always say that jason was the ceo and the leader and like clearly did not have those traits last year. So if he does not do that. That's the only thing you'd be doing if you're the ceo coach like jason was. What is it that you're doing so okay. This conversation pivoted mostly because of super chats. They're not really my fault as the host here by the way dan. Somebody's fall back with the super chats. As coach clap garrett leadership was always a problem. Then i will bobby bobby. We've came on the locker around the league. Will we feel that way. But they will refute that. We've we've used this phrase thousand times but it's true at least. It was true up until probably buffalo thanksgiving chicago the week after nineteen they never quit on jason Ever never even when they lost to the jets in two thousand nine hundred and they came back and destroyed the eagles the following week. That was just kind of always a thing but the reason all of this is relevant. Helmand is because like to that point. You know cowboys. Lose to the jets super embarrassing. I lose them that you're they come out. They flex on the eagles on sunday. Night football deck. Has the hip dance everything. So i don't wanna say this is certainly not the first point of versity. Mike mccarthy is facing this might be the point of adversity. he's facing with dak prescott because the water never really got like hot last year. Yes they were to and to eric. One in three entering that game against the giants last year that they ultimately want went back at her. You mentioned it like okay last year. We didn't have a quarterback in two thousand and ten with the packers. He did have aaron rodgers so he has. That has that staple. He has the most important thing. So how does he respond. Because losing demarcus lawrence is not almost as consequential as losing back because there are people that don't wanna pay tank is do but this is this is bigger than losing out. This is bigger than losing randy greater this bigger than losing gala. This is about as big as it could possibly get for about half of the season and a season where a lot is on the line. I think. I think that this is really going to be the first test of what culture mike mccarthy has brought. We're gonna get to see what he's actually brought. And to bobby's point. I will admit that jason garrett was a he was incredibly great at establishing the culture he wanted and i think the issue and he also established the run. A lot on my issue is that i think it was ultimately losing culture. Because they didn't show up in the beginning that they needed to show up. How many years in the beginning where they win in. You're in week seventeen and they always lost. I think that I think mike mccarthy has a very different culture. And i think last year especially losing back. Because he's such a big leader in that locker room. It was a massive culture shift from what people were used to with garrett to what mccarthy has been doing in green bay and you can obviously debate how successful that wasn't green bay because of everything how it ended between him and aaron rodgers and how much of that was on riders. How much of. That was on. Mike mccarthy you know. There's a great debate there but he had the year to to these players to bring another guys he wants. He's had a. You're doing establish that culture. Any still has dak. Who's the heart and soul of that locker room so this is going to show us. Did that culture stick and if it did stick is going to be as much of a winning culture as it was in green bay We'll get to see. But i think it's definitely one of those years that is going to define mike mccarthy's tenure in dallas for however long it lasts. Yeah that's really true. Certainly this is this. Honestly it's make or break but this is going to go a long way tony. We've talked about culture by the way deep fried sexy. Not you howman. In actual defense sexy says lawrence will get back for the nfc east december showdown right. I believe four of the cowboys last. Five games against teams So i mean tear parliament's earlier point if you have to have democracy miss a stretch of time..

"That time okay. Travis frederick retired fine. Whatever he and he has lost four different periods of time different elongated periods of time dak prescott tyron smith lyle collins twice. Okay microcredit gonna go. His first twenty two games head coach the cowboys and only have had lyle collins for one game late in vandermeesch last year. He's lost other players for little spells. But that is what it is and now demarcus lawrence. You can make an argument. He's loss. owen zack. Martin he's lost baby four of the team's best five players for different stretches of time in his first eighteen games as the team's head coach. That's unreal. i am done now. Good good I i thought it was a good note. I'm from john. Michelle that i heard on the athletic spot gaspar. He had said that When lyle zack martin and tyrant smith all play. The you know what. The teams record is all time when they all three play. Lyle zack martin and tyran smith. I think we should august tony. You should go first. 'cause i'm so think i couldn't even put a number. Give us another fifty one. What is it we talking. Thirty nine and twelve common twenty five and twenty six. I'm going to say so. We're talking like travis. Frederick is an involved here or is now. We're talking about zack. Martin lyle collins tyron smith so over the last two years. Oh so. I guess we're counting two thousand eighteen. So seventeen and twenty sixteen and so it's gonna be like thirteen in two thousand eight something like that. No it's not that bad dare date headed. It's twenty five and twenty six early deep fried sexy there by the way i looked it up. That's like a a like some folk duo so you can't have that twitter handle But jury he these he's been without these but i mean it's not like they've got like a great record with all three of them. They're in there anyway now. They're good players. I don't want to sound like that doesn't matter a lot of that. Came from twenty fifteen where they went four and twelve and they won the first two games of the year one of them with ron leary in there and so i get a little underwater to start but figure it'd be a better record and i think that i think the jones are gonna make all the same sort of excuses. You just made for him so rallied. Are they not valid data points. No no no no multi layers. No hold on. It's not valid because it's the greatest one of my favorite quotes of all time from a bugs life where Prince atas making all these excuses and hop walks up to her and says i rule of leadership. Everything is your fault. And that's the case. Everything is your fault when you're the head coach you can't say we'll bones botswana this well. He oversees bonds fossil. It's his fault he overseas so much of this up. He's the one who didn't have them prepared last year. He's the one who ultimately is responsible even if it's a collaborative effort he's the one ultimately responsible for what they have in terms of depth behind place. He's the one that's responsible for running tarrant still out there last year and this year. That's fair so i mean there's no. I think there's a lot of issues with mike mccarthy and i don't think we've seen really any benefits yet. I don't know what he does really well for for this team And i think it's just. I mean at this point. I know everybody thought it couldn't get worse than jason. I think jason garrett would have done a better job. The last two years. Coaching this team and mccarthy for the last two years include today singer to be clear i mean the last year and this year the last seventeen games the last two seasons all right. How many you've heard i. I don't mean to be like the mccarthy guy you know the mccarthy projects already. I'm just bobby. What you said has has merit. But i'm saying there's a point of maybe call it sympathy from mike mccarthy in this it sucks and other teams with things that suck all the time. How are worried yet. Somewhere in the middle also is is a bugs life among your favorite appliance. Life is pretty great. I think. I know i'm definitely somewhere in the middle. Sorry we have another super chat from alex again just making it rain bobby. Look at the draft clark. Mccarthy's turning it around. He paid so that you could hear that comment. I feel like we need to take alex ahead of. I'm definitely in the middle of the two of you on on mike mccarthy. I've i defended him a lot last year and i I think so far in the one game that we saw that she. I did not like his decision. Making a lot of it does his feet Ultimately as pertains to his job security it all depends on one man. And that's jerry. Jones like jerry will make excuses for you if he likes you and if he's ready to move on from you then the things that is the that's your responsibility. Then that's going to be you're going to be held accountable for that Obviously it sucks to lose players. But mike mccarthy's one super bowl year in green bay. They were missing tons and tons of players. You always brag about that right exactly brags about a lot and it didn't work out last year but i always went back to you well. The year. he won the super bowl. He didn't lose aaron rodgers. he lost at prescott last year but this year he has back for now and he is losing other players around him. And we'll see if we can replicate that kind of magic and if not You'll have to come back to you. Well what does he do as a head coach. Tony so then fix this like who. Who are we matt at like. Are we just mad at the world. You know what i mean like what. Where does where does what do we displace this. This anger this frustration. Because this demarcus lawrence thing does feel like the darkness has fallen moment right. It feels like the breakpoint man like we already dealt with martin missing the opener and we'd lost man. This sucks okay. Cool 'cause acts back randy scott holy crap. We're already dealing without neville gallimore now. Lia- collinses suspended. Michael gallup's her like this. This feels like i don't blame people for getting broken by. This is a fan so like where do you you know like name. Somebody give us a name. Tony way you can't put it on one thing. I think bobby hit on the head. He said you know we can't. We came off the field at the end of week. One you're like okay. This is who we understand has hurt. You know michael galveston a boot. And then it just progressively got worse as the week went on and now we're sitting here a wednesday and it's like we're down both the ends. Then you know. Donna wilson isn't gonna play. We shouldn't be mad at anybody. I think it's one of those like shake your head and just like laugh moments goods. It's like all right. What else you know what i mean. What else is going to happen. We still got three or four days till the game. Time so It's a tough situation and try to stay optimistic and positive as i can but i think in a our group chat pre this. I was just like man. I'm i'm exhausted. I'm exhausted week to. Yeah i mean it's it's it's s. I mean there's there's no doubt about it Bobby are you a believer in vibes because right now. The vibes are not good with the. They're not immaculate. The the vibes are bad. And so it you talked about you know if they win. There could be these activity this positive apps but it does feel like if they lose it could be. That could be a terrible week. A little bit of a longer week tubes. They plan footba. And that's only one more day but it feels like it could be rough if i don't know about the i think there's a little bit of i think there'd be a lot of excuse me i don't wanna say excuse me but i think it'd be a lot that they would point to to go. We were in a unique situation. This was already always going to be a tough game. I think there's another super chats. Bobby you can take mike mccarthy's shrine off the wall. Okay i'd never had. I don't know what that means but alex. I get two dollars to say it. So i will. I'll say yes.

"David hammond you can read both of their find work epilogue and the boys and bobby bell who's new show. An old show cavs cast has made his triumphant return to the blog. The boys podcast network is here as well. We are all here to react to the news that dropped a few hours ago. Dallas cowboys pass rusher. The always under appreciated demarcus lawrence now has a broken fractured foot. However you wanna put. It's our pets heads are falling off so to speak. Is what. I told tony when we got in here Bobby i'll go to you. First how are you feeling and You know why don't we do from here. Russel dyer says time to sign alden smith so i don't know if you agree with that that will never happen. There's never going to bring alden smith back There's been a bunch of people have been floating out there. Alden smith won't happen I don't think vic beasley would happen. i don't know that he and dan quinn quite saw eye-to-eye olivier vernon won't happen olivier vernon torn achilles at the end of last season. And he from talking to people. He's still reacting that he's not healthy he can't play for anybody right now But i mean they're in a bad spot that i mean there's no doubt about it. I mean even when demarcus lawrence isn't giving sacks that even just clearly better with him on the field and so I mean you're already thin with randy gregory. But i'm at least that's just a single week. i mean they're going to be in a weird spot. You may see a lotta. Michael parsons jalen. Smith rushing the passer. But i mean it's pretty terrifying to think you're going. Terrell basham endurance armstrong for potentially like sixty snaps on sunday shoutout to alex pier. Sling here on the street with. We are streaming live on the block on the boys youtube channel and on the facebook page. Alex with the super chat says no. No no lack of confidence here. I think dallas beats the chargers. Definitely i think You know a lone wolf. I mean hey you know. There's certainly reasons to believe that that could happen. Bobby you touched on options for the garbage to replace demarcus lawrence that the time that's been kinda thrown out at six to eight weeks Almond it's it's tough to kind of figure this out here. Akeem says next man up. let's go sixteen games. Left crap happens. It's a family show everybody. It's not what he said. Just whatever jose says how. Why does defense always hold us back. How the cowboys are going. We're going to play this game. Down to starters on offense michael gallup at the calf strain in lisle concert suspension. Bobby mentioned randy. Gregory does seem like he's going to miss this game. That's at least what. Mike mccarthy intimated today in his press conference he's on the reserve cove in nineteen less scenario down to offensive starters to defensive starters and your defensive ones are your pass rushers your top pass rushers when you're a team. They didn't get a single sack last week. Granted tampa has an elite offensive line but the chargers offensive line. Not bad by any stretch. I mean if you were a what one to ten you were a what on the cowboys defense. And now you're a what. I was a all cheating. Say wait and see on the defense and still in that cheating But i think also to your point about missing starters. They're also still short novel galar. who's out. Obviously he'll be out and then donovan. Wilson reaggravated his groin injury that he had during training camp so it could be more than just just those two by the time. We actually get to the game in politics to to be positive. I think this is going to be an interesting point to see. Just how creative. Dan quayle can beat because he's he's obviously a very A very successful defensive mind in seattle and then didn't have as much success in atlanta. But he's shown already in dallas that he's changed his scheme up a bit. He's been open two more concepts and having somebody like. Mike parsons that he moves around a lot having some versatility with how he used safety In week one. I think this is going to really show us what dan quinn is capable of doing when he doesn't have elite talent like you know helgi hadn't seattle with earl thomas or kam chancellor and now he is short to your best pass rushers by far and get to see what he gets to do Event that is some optimism. I think not that you're like pumped about this album but this isn't the time to experiment. You know what. I mean like that. That time has come and gone so that is a difficult hurdle to get over Jay rod says on youtube sky's falling rarely wednesday. We still got four more days to go to see if anything else happens to your point about. Donovan wilson you know things can can really kind of shift Certainly in darker since Obviously it feels like everything is really bad already. Tony tanner says on youtube. Gotta have parsons rushing the passer much more now. Is that the most obvious answer here. I mean there are other routes to pursue. There are other players to pursue. We can all cross our fingers adorns armstrong jerry. Jones certainly believes We all believe in bradley unites bashing bobby mentioned there are names But at the end of the day. Is this something that mike parsons maybe list. I mean without a question. Now they gotta get creative a little bit right. I mean it's it's one thing to be rainy gregory for the week for code and now you're looking at tank lawrence being out as as long as he is Is far as week to goes. It's a tough deal. The look at this defensive line and say you know. Roll out there with what you've got now. You're going to get creative. You're going to be different with your and multiple with your alignment and you know you. Maybe jalen smith has the rest of the past a little bit. Maybe mike parsons takes on a bigger loads so it they just gonna have to figure out different ways to attack.
"demarcus lawrence" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Because he's going to make the right choice gotta trust him. But i trust him at the highest level. And what gronk oh wait. A second to safety is going to go. Well that means this big old defensive lineman defensive end demarcus lawrence is going to have to cover me. And he can't cover me so he just bolts. That's why people got to from that defense with the bears would run. That defense happening skipped is that they were taking a tight end blocking demarcus lawrence sharing the guy over. You listened hitting the quarterback in the back. That's why one guess. What what have we got fake like. We're going to block the guy and they go out okay. So tom's going to have to take it in the mouth because he took a shot and got back and he had thrown off his back foot and he had to throw his art as he could do it to get enough muscular on it to get it to grow right up to see. And it's ten yards touchdown. And that's that was a touchdown born of years of of of just connection. we're you completely trust each skip. Get this remember. We talked about that. We get derek decor was talking about this distance. What this day in queens special. We liked it. We know this down to distance this area the field. He likes to go to the deepest heads up. I can't believe they do in this. Yeah said about gronk. Even bill would say bill yes. He gets it all with their money. Now this the cowboys apparently called twenty-eight run plays last week against tampa but dak prescott audibles out of twelve of them dallas average nearly five yards per play on those changes and offensive coordinator..
Cowboys Kicker Misses Two Field Goals in Dramatic Loss to Buccaneers
"I i don't think there's any way of getting around at the tonight. A loser for the dallas cowboys. Is greg zero line. Let's let's your thoughts your thoughts on greg's Let's see here one second. This is a hectic night. Obviously greg line just amber says. I'm so mad right now on facebook. i'm with you. I get this. You know an anthony says not the same defense Tony says push off definitely a push off there at the end cowboys losing. Because the buccaneers drive. If somehow missed the game drive at the very kick a game winning field goal which just about no time remaining cowboys. defense can't stop them in the cowboys. Defense i will say kind of was a little bit of the same old defense. We didn't get you know a defense that was just allowing the bucks going on and on and on and on but this defense did get four turnovers tonight. But if we examine those turnovers. I think the only real authentic one was the demarcus lawrence forced fumble demarcus. Lawrence is definitely a winner tonight. I think demarcus lawrence was awesome. But the first interception the cowboys had the trayvon digs on was a tipped ball. Off of leonard fournette. Yes that counts. Yes that's true. Yes that count statistically but you know that's not necessarily your defense making a play on the ball cowboys also got an interception on. Tom brady at the end of the first half throwing a hail. Mary trying something before the half. That isn't really count. Although jordan lewis certainly had valiant effort trying to run that back and get some points You know the last turnover. The one that kind of turned the game around a little bit. That gave the cowboys. an opportunity. There at the very end Was just kinda. Chris godwin you know running into devante. Casey's helmet those things aren't necessarily You know something. You can replicate on a week by week basis and so for that reason. It's hard to give the cowboys credit. For all of those turnovers it was a different type of performance at the exact same defense we. I think we definitely saw some improvements. I think that mike parsons played moderately. Well i think that demarcus lawrence has mentioned played while randy gregory was on things But this was. I mean man. What a rough game for anthony

"Too many times. But when i am when i am by on beverages every night all of a sudden that i sound like doors ron. I'm a video of it unless you want to do right now for the people i feel like you should. I have done not have enough liquid courage that i can do. You know rendition for you okay. let's hear it. What tag is ivan junkie. I we went to lsu ut game and we all know how that ended up three sheets to the wind at that point. It was very liquid. We were all liquidated Basically i ask. Because i knew i was sitting by derek eagleton's house like i should be on better behavior but i i started i drink. Watch the game. The white clause told you otherwise. The game i was having great vinson. I drink water. She walks up to me at this tailgate. We're at and i don't know what i was doing. Besides i don't know being dumb and does this meeting everyone in their moms and being like let's be best friends yet and she does this ed or zahran impression and i just was. I was slain. I was deceased. I was i was not ready me in. The white cloud said it with our whole chest so like that. Was that what i gave you right. There was nothing but listen. I know my team didn't win day but that moment itself was a victory for thank you all right. Well you know. Yeah yeah yeah number. Three i digress. Yeah you're up it me okay. Let's see number three. I have the strip sack of drew brees in the twenty eighteen matchup whenever you say strip sacked. I always think of strip sack. Mila when von miller in that strip poker so. I'm glad that you have will not dirty mind. So where's your brain. My gal apparently strip poker. I don't know and fulfilling some of our listeners are not complaining but continue it was. I was like reliving this moment. I looked at a couple of different like breakdowns of it. And i think the best one was drew. Brees sack party gives cowboys chance you view. That reminds you anything about how that game went like everyone was getting a piece of the pie. They're like we were out here. Knocking over drew brees that they woke up and they were like today is the day i hit some bitches and eli led the charge on that for sure. Well it was cool too. Because i mean this is the game again. We feel like we stand a lot of people because to ers as individuals podcast. I want everyone to win. It was dalton schultz's verse first touchdown of his career The the saints were like unstoppable. Right i think they're averaging thirty seven point nine points or something like that. I was reading You know per per game in offense in and they had won the ten straight in this no one could do anything about it and again de la that week was like on and lo and behold not only does the defense like have a fucking game like they're like nah were like we. Don't care sean. Payton we literally do not care that you are sean payton. You're incredible and you're gonna go down in history not tonight. They held him to one hundred and seventy six yards. And that's literally the fewest yards. They've ever been held to since two thousand one but it was just like it was it was just like a next level out of left field performance and as we all know like this even it this was. This was the rod marinelli days so they definitely had their moments in time. That were the positive. But this defense is struggled you more consistently than ny instead of have a performance like this against a team like that was just kind of legendary will and if you think about think the fourth quarter speaking of people we stand like randy gregory was he was having a game they were just they were going off. They were in rare form for how they were at that point And just brandy gregory. His third sack of the day. So crazy He stripped the ball and demarcus lawrence recovered it so they that brought them like up to what was twenty one fourteen which ended up being the final score de las solidified. It with a sack in like the last fifteen something like it was club dwindling down. He sealed the deal like do. I had a game in. He boosted everybody around him.

Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though

"Did he get on, but still any competent agents should have been able to see the once you had twenty million dollars for your pass rusher was on the horizon cause any idiot should have known that Aaron Donald was doing a deal it was going to be over twenty million per year in Khalil Mack was doing a deal? Same thing in what you got those two in that club. Somebody else was gonna join it. And you've had two other guys join it so far. And Frank Clark and DeMarcus Lawrence, her is it for? Fourteen and a half million per year and went out had a great year. So he is any, and he gave up five new years. If you get to do that do a bridge deal where you give up to three New Year's, so the idea the it has many bites of the apple in your prime in not rely on the teams. Good graces to correct. A deal, which is so out of whack at the marketplace, which is what they've had to Adam feeling which is I know they're great contract. It presents ski did. But I will be surprised if the new owner some point is a holdout candidate where he goes. Wait a minute. You most of the twenty five million miles GARRETT'S in that neighborhood, I'm at four and producing like then, like they are whoa. We got a problem here, so. Yeah. Robbers Inskeep great in his job. Hey, don't you know, we're, we're two years out now from a potential lockout and. And I can't believe it's been ten years since two thousand eleven CBA was was was trucking and time ardizzone will be dead soon. However, I would like to address obviously there were so many huge changes in the love and the rookie cap changed the way the teams are built. I that's an overstatement veterans in a lot of ways got screwed for the first five six years that deal. It started to become a little more normalized last couple of years, but it was a tough time to be twenty nine or thirty in the NFL during this CBA when you look at the different types of contracts or types of things that will be addressed. Maybe that no one's talking about right now. What do you see happening going forward with sort of the way from, from team, building standpoint contracts are looked at in this CBA going forward for that for the twenty twenties? Well things going to be status close. I don't think the players are going to get any significant games at the CBA one thing that people always talk about as needed, boss. The franchise tag. Hell's gonna freeze over before that, that's, that's, that's gonna be in the next seven CBS's not getting rid of that. So players can hope to try to get Maryland marijuana relaxed in terms of discipline for that. I wouldn't make Goodell's Commissioner disciplined, some sort of major point that you need to have one. I my playing the owners hands. He knew really focus on increasing your your share of the pie. You're basically forty seven percent. I don't think you'd get over fifty. Maybe get the forty nine is the baseline in making sure gambling revenue is included in that try to increase the amount, you can find TV money. Maybe home back, the Ricky wage scale, a little bit, the fifth year option is killing to me the leverage players. 'cause it used to be the last. Year your contract under the old system was so out of whack. There's no way that a player could play under it so team would do do you early in the player had him at their mercy. Or if you had to play out, you can franchise them, like Donna consume over Mark and got some, he'll which reshape the marketing ways, nobody really saw coming.

"Coming back it makes me like him more like I would have liked him either way. But there is something to amateurism. I know nobody wants everybody to get paid. But one of the reasons I love certain basketball players Magic Johnson loved the game. And Michael loved the game that is something to. And I think it's a really cool thing that he comes back and he's like these guys I'll play basketball. That is much just because I do have my other feelings about all of that as far as what what these kids do bring to the school and the money that they generate that they don't get any part of. But overall, I like that he's playing I mean, it's it's great for fans. And like I said, it's an experience. He's never going to get again. Whether it's amateurism or not, and it's it's seem out there. And he's dominating. Yeah. The ratings will be out for March madness. By the way, they will be up. Yeah. I mean, there's no question. This kid will literally if he's in the final four you're gonna have your highest final four in a long time. And finally in the past splashy offseason moves were part of the game plan for the Cowboys this off season. They're looking for ways to resign DeMarcus Lawrence Dak Prescott Amari Cooper is Elliott, and Jalen Smith among others and Stephen Jones address that problem he told Sports Illustrated when you figure out how to pay the pass rusher the corners, the receiver the quarterback the running back across the board on the offensive line. And then try to pay a couple linebackers. That's what you have to start getting super create. If you go out and do a deal right now, that's not efficient. You're starting to take some money away. That is hopefully going to help you keep Jalen hopefully, hopefully help you keep both corners, and they had a franchise tag DeMarcus Lawrence. First domino to fall Dakhla likely be next. But the Cowboys are going to have to get very creative. Although I still I still like their chances in in their division with the eagles. Did this off season? We do this every year on paper. It's great. You know, there's going to be some some pressure back. Now Carson Wentz again. So I overall I think the Cowboys are going to figure it out and Jerry seems to be in when now mode he said, so that's a lot of pieces to get get sent out there. There's not a lot of guarantees in the NFL. And I don't think the Cowboys are guaranteed to be a playoff team last year next year, the guarantees Kansas City with Patrick Mahomes is going to be good every year until Patrick Mahomes is in his forties. Andrew luck and the colts. They know what they're doing. New England is going to be good until Brady retires..

"This is ESPN's Kevin Seifert's list. Well, I guess he kind of turned it around sort of. So maybe it worked DeMarcus Lawrence is number one. Listen this podcast. He's probably franchise. You're about to read are gonna be you know, what let's talk about that. Because he's probably not gonna be franchise is reporting right now that they're working on a long term deal. But I feel like they're all gonna get tagged. And they're going to say we're working on. They're going to. I mean the thing about so a tag for Lawrence. Enroll being second year in a row. So it'd be over twenty million dollars. So the turnaround thing is you know, he basically he he's had some his struggles injuries. The suspensions all of that. And then over the last two seasons. He's been incredible. And that's what I that's why I'm so confident I'm an aside from the fact that it's the Cowboys a twenty six he's a Jerry Jones calls them more daddy's, which makes me so uncomfortable. And he says it. That one's really like just daddy. No. But but anyways, the fact that he had two consecutive double-digit sack seasons. It was awesome. Both of them is why I feel. That he's gonna get this massive contra, I always fight for players. But if you're an owner, and who knows what's gonna happen. One year of twenty to see what happens maybe to Marcus on a down year. You know, do you really want to do a contract negotiation after he has his best year as a pro it's not great negotiation tactics. But also you're gonna upset the player if you tag them work. I think as he was upset last year. He was but he played through it. He showed up. He did. There was no issues. And that's what I think they're not gonna they're not gonna mess with him. Right. It's your ineffective he had two consecutive years. And also, we're a lot of these top ten spoiler are pass rushers. And I think that there's not a better option for the Cowboys. They haven't been that good at driving developing them, the draft is awesome. But guess what? They don't have first round draft pick. So we're gonna get one of those elite pass rusher. The key is if David Irving was not getting suspended and was not taking things he is incredible. That was the replacement plant taco. Lawrence taco Charlton was the replacement plan, but DeMarcus has guy and I have to pay them. I think so I think he's gonna set them. So that's the other thing again when we get all these projects the list of explaining why on your phone. I know you're researching like texting. That would be. Yeah. What if you were just tweeting, and I opened Twitter, and I saw you were dating the show just tweeting like hungry running long. What's up guys up? So I think he's got the interested. Interesting thing, I think about perhaps the most interesting thing about the pass rusher market. And in some of these names is who's gonna go first win all this is going to happen. And I think they're pretty comfortable with him setting the market. So I actually wouldn't be surprised if they do something interesting about this past market is there are question marks for long-term deals on all of them. I don't wanna. Well, I- jamarcus would be the off the field stuff. And then also some injuries stuff. And you know, can he continue what he did last year? So here's a guy that I think I don't know if I would have put him at three working off of the span list. Default because I'm gonna give a monster contract to the image of him being offsides in the play a fan base. We're going to unload. Everybody knows good. So the thing about deport if you don't know is he was really not good at first the numbers are very bad. Then in two thousand sixteen to go for Tom Halloween was awesome. Ten sacks. Then he gets hurt. Then he comes back this year and has the contract season of his dreams. Fourteen sixteen and a half. Let's see how many sex thirteen six. Okay. So if you're the chiefs. They're probably trying to get out of the Justin Houston contract. Now. Are you comfortable giving do would you franchise him? I he is a perfect franchise candidate where you give him the year..

"So I don't think that was close. What other what other positions? I was surprised. You didn't have DeMarcus Lawrence at defensive end that which is just a loaded position. And so you had what? And who did you have glioma in Khalil Mack at Edris Scher? They give you two edge spots. And I did want to put the Marcus Lawrence on. I had he and Jalen Smith and Layton Vander on my second team. All pro all three of those guys. I just thought that Khalil Mack was a legitimate number two behind Aaron Donald. That's the guy you want and JJ. I mean JJ was I would've given Lawrence a slight edge. And I thought it was interesting shook went with von Miller who under the radar had another great like just hall of fame caliber type year. I also ask that we not invite shook into the segment of freeze him out to magnify west is. Is there something weird? It me in football right now that corner cornerback seemed very difficult to even figure out who is a standout because Gilmore is getting a lot of love. And I think he's had a great season. But it just doesn't feel like there's Cornerbacks right now that are dominating because they make almost like the position so hard. And so few play man coverage. You went with cream Jackson who had a great year. I mean shook went with Brandon Carr and Kyle fuller. So it's it's it's not guys that you're thinking or having these Durell rebus or even Patrick Peterson type of like dominant years. Yeah. My thought process was. There's no real shutdown guy right now too hard. So there's no Durell Rivas. So do you go with coverage? Tackling big playability Kyle Fuller's guy if you like interceptions and pass deflections. I liked the way cream Jackson hit people this year. I thought he played exactly like Antoine Winfield used to play with the Vikings. He leveled so many wide receivers and tight ends and really set a physical tone for that secondary. There were games the game against the Broncos that I saw him play was one of the most impressive defensive back games of the year. And I was just like, okay. This guy is just any people. I think with you're looking at you know, going through both sides of the ball. What you and shook did. And I love this article because it's packed with information in not just information pulled from statistics. But years worth for both of you guys watching I know shook watches a ton of film to, but if the article in it is test, I next stats. I would say that you guys had the same. Similar results on maybe more than eighty percent of the players. What is your takeaway when the eye test and the next gen stats are so similar that mean that next gen stats is legit. I think it's I think it's a positive for next gen stats. I mean, also I think shook it's part of shook Cy tests to I would imagine it's not just him leaning on their results data. I don't I think if you wanna valuate players to the best of your ability, use your eyes, I always in any sport, trust your eyes. And then you back it up and check yourself with analytics advanced analytics, and whatever data you can get your hands on. I think you also throw in anecdotes from throwing quotes from players and coaches and endorsements from guy like Bill Belichick throw all that into the stew. And then this is what comes out, and I think that's sort of why next-gen in the eye test or similar because you're checking yourself with each of them, very good. And again, this this needs a vanity oil. Does it have on? 'cause we gotta get on it. 'cause I can't even send. Apple NFL dot com. Wesseling or NFL dot com. Shook because it's a co byline it somewhere in the between those the abyss. Let's see last year. It was under NFL dot com. All pro I think we're all pros.

This time around they need to find a way to win this game in skin and continue move before. But it's about his legacy. And he's he's a historian, man. He understands the game of football. Those exactly where he fits is. There a certain franchises where you're not really in any type of conversation until you make deep playoff run us. Dallas Cowboys are up at the top with that. Though, you go Bandrich Jalen Smith this. Cowboys defense can run a Soka. Russell Wilson he can extend that thing like nobody else. How can they make life tough on rusty? I think what they're going to do a lot. Because one thing about Russ's that you cannot give him the splash place. You can't give him those big over the top. Tyler Lockett plays down the field. Make him earn it and do not give him a chance to be off scheduled. I'll even if you don't sack Russ find a way to get to get have your angles. Make sure that he can't out leverage. You get on the outside the perimeter and make the big place because he's at his best when he's all schedule when he's playing backyard football, you cannot allow him to get on the firm of and the easy game plan scheme to stop him is pass rush disciplined. Don't run back it up. Don't run behind the quarterback push up the pocket, but with him. It's. Different. You can't do it. He's going to get out. So this is more of an effort pass rush game in my opinion. And this guy DeMarcus Lawrence once you get there, and you miss him because you will you will miss Russell Wilson. He's just got that lower body strength. You have to chase and chase and chase in those seven seconds eight second plays because that's how long hill extend them. They'll tell you else's shoop or slippery in that pocket. Lamar jackson. You see you? See Melvin Ingram with on him. A big all week sixteen rematches come in.
