Taoism and the Philosphy of Flow
"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. Hi Jeremy Fisher always alongside. My Co host Erin Falcon Right. Right Aaron. Today we're going to talk a little bit about the philosophy of flow. We're going to philosophical big buzz word flow. Yeah we're GONNA talk about Taoism which You know I'm going to say Taoism because Tau is I know how spell with a t but You know I think the most common pronunciation of this Taoism so we will go with that but if talk a little bit about the philosophy of flow and this is from Ganger which is a Youtube. So let's go ahead and listen to this clip Which offers no resistance overcomes the hardest substances that which offers no resistance can enter where there is no space. Few in the world can comprehend the teaching without words or understand the value of non action. Outsor-. There's no proof that they truly ever lived but if did it should have been somewhere around a fifth and sixth century BC which makes him a contemporary of Confucius nevertheless the Chinese philosopher. Loud Sir wrote a masterpiece called the Dow de Ching which is the main work of Taoism a well known concept that has emerged from Taoist. Philosophy is way that GONNA be translated as non action effortless action or the paradox action of non action. In a practical sense. We can describe w-way as the state of flow often referred to as the zone by athletes when athletes are in the zone. They engage in action without striving and move through time and space. Almost effortlessly there are no extremes. No worries no ruminations. Everything seems to flow in a natural course as an introduction to the beautiful tradition of Dow Wisdom. I would like to present you. The philosophy of flow doubt `aging as a mysterious species of art. Not only there's no consensus when exactly it was written but the existence of its author remains dispute it. Nevertheless one thing is certain. The profundity of this work has left. Its mark on humanity to does day not to mention that the dowding is the most translated work in world literature after the Bible the essence of Taoist philosophy is living in harmony with the Dow also called the way. So what is the Dow neces- question weekend re answer? And it's futile to try. Our understanding of the Dow only goes as far as the limitations over a perception. What the Dow really is and what it looks feels smells or sounds like remains a mystery. Moreover the doubted we speak Gulf isn't the real dow according to louder hence the famous opening of the doubt. `aging goes like this. The Dow that's can be described is not the eternal Tao the name can be spoken is not the eternal name and quote so what knowledge is available about the Dow. Well the Dow I emphasize over and over again that the true Dow is an all encompassing force that is beyond our comprehension and cannot be perceived by the senses and even though we can never grasp the true doubt the goal is to live in agreement with it which is strikingly similar to the STOIC approach to nature. So how do we live in harmony with the way? Taoist literature doesn't really give one practical method to achieve this. However we can find many clues that point to achieving stillness over mind curbing census being humble and the cessation of striving in order to open ourselves up to the workings of the universe. This stillness of mind doesn't necessarily mean that we sit down somewhere with our eyes closed the Taoists that stillness of mind can be combined with action and we are completely in the present moment. Our actions will go effortlessly without friction and accompanied by a razor sharp focus so much so that it's almost ecstatic in his biography. Retired professional basketball player. Bill Russell writes it was almost as if we were playing in. Slow motion during those spells. I would almost sense out necks. Play would develop and where the next shot would be taken and quote. The work zone contains a story about a cook named Ting who engages in his work while in a state of flow. This grasped the attention of Lord when we who was amazed about how elegantly the cook cut up oxygen when he commented him on his skill Gook Ting lay down knife and replied what care about is the way which goes beyond skill when a first began cutting oxen. All I could see was the ox itself after three years. I no longer Saudi whole ox. And now now I go edit by spirit and don't look with my eyes. Perception and understanding have come to stop and spirit moves where at once. I go along with a natural makeup. Strike the big hollows guide the knife through the big openings and following things as they are so never touch the smallest ligament or tendon. Much less a main joint and quote an essential. Part of the story is the condition of the knife that could uses. He stated. That good cooks changed our knifes every year because they cut and mediocre kooks changed their knives every month because they heck Cupertino however was using the same knife for nineteen years because he used it with skill and subtlety. This story connects to another essential teaching of Taoism which is the power of gentleness by forcing and striving we might get the job done but at the same time we spent much more energy than necessary and possibly suffer from collateral damage on the other. Hand someone in a state of flow approaches a task intelligently knowing when to act and what not to find a balance between action and non action. It's a matter of not too hot not too cold. It's the golden path between anxiety and boredom. The idea behind non-action goes against the western ideal of forcing and working harder and harder to get results. We are encouraged to be ambitious to take control. And to strive meanwhile many people suffer from depression anxiety disorders and sleep disorders. Are we burning ourselves out? We look down on Pacific and often mistaken for laziness but these are different things when we look at nature. Doing nothing makes way more sense than we tend to think. Results do not equal the amount of energy we spent results are a consequence of a series of actions. The funny thing about this. Is that many of these actions? Come naturally and a task doesn't need more human intervention than necessary to steer it into the right direction. Isn't it so that many problems solve themselves? Taoism comparison live to a river. The river already has a course or several courses and the ones we find ourselves in death river. We can swim against the current we can hold onto a branch or weaken. Let go and go along with the Stream. Most of our lives. We swim against the current. And we don't even realize it. Our mind believes that it can shoot control the environment in order to survive which is kind of egocentric because the vast majority of processes within as well as outside ourselves are not in control. I mean let's face it. We don't control our bodily processes like digestion blood flow or the healing of wounds. We don't control other people. We don't control the future. We don't even control who we fall in love with and what people we find attractive everything outside our own faculties just goes into some direction sometimes forced by intelligence but mostly in a natural course when we flow along with the current. We align ourselves with this natural course. This is the bath. Of least it gives nature a chance to unfold without US resisting it. So the Dow was the way is rather navigating through the river instead of trying to control it. Something that will never work another aspect of the river. That characterizes Taoism is the water itself d correct heuristic of water are softness and humidity that basically symbolized Taoist virtue. Here's a quote from the Dow Teaching. The supreme good is like water which benefits all of creation without trying to compete with it. It gathers in unpopular places. Does it is like the Dow and quote. What are maybe soft. But it's overcomes hardness which we can see in the erosion of Iraq and what are not only seeks to lower places. It's also has no burgers. No goal no specific desire yet. It nourishes everything that passes. It's an incredible life force. That literally does God's work but without any ambition water is the softest and most yielding substance. Yet nothing is better than water for overcoming the heart and rigid because nothing can compete with it and quote if you've ever experienced a state of flow that's one thing that disappears and only comes back when to thinking mind. Take back control. This is focused on results. Rather than the task at hand this reminds me of the story concept of Amore Fatty which recommends want to embrace the outcome. Whatever it may be and instead of worrying about the future focusing on what's in the present no matter if you're completely immersed in sports writing a video game or dancing when you're in a state of flow you forget. The results the pressure the anxieties about the future. The failings of the best. It's just you and a task at hand. You're completely in the present and the only way to do this is by letting go letting go means stops swimming against the current stop holding onto some branches. It means letting go of the past letting go of the future focus on this moment entirely and just live it without hesitation before I get your thoughts. Let's take a second and think today sponsor we are promoting another podcast today. A really good one is called start from zero and it just came out. It's climbing the ranks really fast. It is reaching the top fifteen podcasts. It's a unique show that I've actually never seen before. It's an experienced entrepreneur. Who takes people from all walks of life in mentors them teaching them how to make money starting from zero without compromising who they are. The podcast has fifty percent female participants on the episodes and has fifteen millionaire students. And let me tell you it shows. The episodes are highly edited for maximum impact. And it's just about as good as it comes if you'd like to try out episode to see if you like it visit start from zero dot com slash brain. People have been listening to this. Podcast have been binge listening to that is start from zero dot com slash brain hour. Right Erin the action of non-action. That's what we talked a little bit about here. What did you think for stuff into it? Yeah Yeah I'm always kind of in line with my lessons. More quiet mind. Is You know the minds. It speaks the busy mind. Does the mind that shuts down that kind of thing. And so I think all these things are kind of saying the same thing and probably all been born in some way. Or another. From the root of Taoism. I think as we move into a more and more chaotic place mentally an energetically socially these principles. It's not a surprise to me that we are hearing state of flow flow state trying to get into your flow over and over and over again and it's just a reaction a response to a level of chaos and clammy that is simply not sustainable for that much longer. Yeah and I think everyone has experienced it at some point and didn't really know what it was like man that just seemed to work out like you may be locked in here. Maybe you're playing basketball or your writing or even if you're in a conversation with someone in the words. Cd's sounded like the most articulate person in the world where you look back and you're like who was that. Yeah I mean that that sort of state of flow. What so many people are trying to achieve. And it's one of those things where the harder you try to reach it the further it is from you. Sometimes it's like I often comes in the most unexpected unanticipated ways in times and I think that the Dow was kind of realized that forcing it is often the worst way to achieve it. And so it's kind of like have you ever. I'm sure everybody's dumbness. You're having a dream that you're really loving really interested in you. Wait in for some reason you wake up and you're like oh I got to to get to that dream. I gotTa get to the gym. It's literally never happened in. The history of mankind can never get back to that dream. The second you try to get back to exactly yeah. It is and it's it's very interesting because it's such a of visceral like it's you can't. It's nothing you can put your finger on like it is just this like it's almost like woo woo like you can't get a hold of it you but everyone has experienced it. And so I think that there's some tips and techniques that people have to try to set yourself up to achieve the state of flow. You and I've actually done a couple podcast on that in the past but I think that is also very difficult to do because you have to try to do it in a way to where you just create the space for it to happen or not happen. It can't be something that you force right and I think that's kind of what they were talking about when they were talking about sort of You know the power of gentleness and like approaching things with soft or loose hands where you're not the you know you're not coming at something with the intention of getting something out of it. Soft and loose hands. Yeah so well you know what you know what I thought about when I said that one split second I came back and I was like. What are we talking about? It doesn't surprise zoned out. I think you do it more often for longer but often loose. I'll tell you I'll tell you what made me think of that? Was trying to hold water. Okay like try to grab a handful of water the tighter. You try to grit or sand like the tighter. Try to rip it insight audience into Jeremy's what he does at home. Yes I try to do is grab water Jonah. Grab water sitting in the bathtub. And I'm like I'm GonNa get you know. Think about it in that term like in a metaphor state like people who I feel like people have the same problem the that relates to bunny that relates to health that relates to relationships like the tighter. You try to grab onto something the more slip out of your hand and it is like trying to grab onto water and so. I think that's kind of the way like that. What was in my head when I said soft and loose hands was basically. Don't want it so much that you will repel it from your life. Because I think that's what happens right when you try to find that flow well and it's I'll take it one step further. It's it's about trying to control the second year trying to control this. You've lost control. Yes and I think that's what's so scary for people especially when you talk about things like meditation which are Kinda go hand in hand with flow states is the fear of totally letting go what's going to happen what's GonNa come up for me. What's maybe nothing will happen. Then what I've got nothing. I'm empty I need to control something. I need to own something about myself and only you can only do that by letting it all go. Yep It's such a love that life has some paradoxes. Like just obvious. Weird doesn't make any sense paradoxes. And this is one of them right. The more you let go the more you'll find what you're looking for the harder you try to hold onto something the more likely you are to lose it and I just think it's I just think it's fascinating you can talk about the parallels throughout life all your entire life like kids if you try to hold onto control manipulating smother your kids. Guess what they as soon as they get out of the house. They're gone you won't talk to him for years. They will have to get away from you because you use tried to hold them so close that they ripped they rejected you the same thing with like a romantic partner. The show up on a first date with someone and try to propose to them. They're out last date. You had the first and last date. You'll have you can't you? Can't force things to happen too fast or outside of their own natural time. Line and so yeah. I think that's the this is one of those things that it's a very very core. Deep philosophy that comes from Taoism that if you can institute it in a little piece here and there in every area of your life basically rewires how you approach that subject and we talk about every month. Go ahead and it starts doing the work for you. Yes you stop. Us stopped doing trying to do the work. Let the work get done for you. And that's what happens in a flow state right. It becomes effortless. You don't you don't have to think about it or feel it. Just something locks in like you're saying like you make an may mazing move on the basketball court or you string together an amazing thought in a presentation and it's like you didn't say. I'M GONNA NOW. They can amazing thought and say it out loud. You just did right. So that's your energy just working for you instead of you trying to create that energy and manipulate that energy and control that energy to do something for that's a lot more heavy lifting and I think is so much more relaxing because it's instead of me getting all geared up anxious about what do I do next Knicks. Sometimes it's best just to sit down and let things come to you. And and that's the danger of expectation right so that's also part of flow state that he didn't really talk about it in here but it is those the expectation of this is what I have to do. This is what I have to do right now. That takes so much energy from you instead of just being in a position to let be what will be you know. Yep Absolutely manures countless examples we could. We could talk about but I think that our audience is smart enough to get the point. They get it and I think that's a good place for us to go ahead and wrap up I will put the link to this video in the show. Notes that the episode as we always do big things to anes ill Ganger if I pronounced that correctly putting that out there for us until next time. I'm Jeremy Fisher reminding you to keep moving keep thinking and keep growing.
Full Show (Tom Brady, Cowboys, Lamar Jackson, Colin Kaepernick, LaDainian Tomlinson joins the show)
"Welcome to the undisputed podcast. I'm your host Jerry Taft. This podcast is the full show from today's episode Soda undisputed from start to finish. They've got a busy slate. So Skip Shannon. Let's get to it dispute it. We are live from Los Angeles. I'm Jenny Tab. Taft skip realism Shannon. Sharpe Good Morning. I'm great oh go go go go me to Jalen Ellen hurts. My Oklahoma sooners pulled off a comeback for the ages. Baylor in the New England Patriots won me two more cases. The Diet do from Shannon Sharpe refund cap dead cowboys. Guess what you know what I got that I should do. Preska gift would you uh-huh level. They want to get a long way to go but he will gain more Gabe. Hey We got the bug twice been kind of interested to go to the Spurs. No really. They still play basketball. And there's no Tim Duncan is going to come back. Employees need to Sunday's Oh we have so so much to get to today. Did yesterday prove that the cowboys are now deck St. Maybe we should do that for Dak.. Lamar Jackson just run away with the MVP. But I will start with the Super Bowl. Fifty two rematch between the Patriots and Eagles after admitting the Super Bowl loss was still on his mind. Tom Brady got his revenge yesterday today. Philly jumped out to ten year lead but Carson Wentz and the offense failed to score again in the final two and a half quarters. Radiant New England slowly chipped away way down one Julian Edelman Not Brady threw the go ahead. Touchdown Pass Brady at just over two hundred yards and no touchdowns and after the Game Brady said. The offense couldn't quote quote. Do everything better so shannon does Brady and look like he is capable of winning another super bowl. Tom Brady will not be the reason. The New England Patriots won another Super Bowl. Oh the defense will be a reason why they win that Super Bowl and I saw the quote lashes statement that His Guerrero is train again. PUT PUT OUT Tom. Brady's GONNA play by Tom. Brady's not playing five more years. I feel very comfortable in saying Tom. Brady's not playing three more years I feel even more devout. The Tom Brady is not playing. Another year ear passed this year in New England. This you know because you're making the case that he's done now right. So how can you play anywhere else. What part about that did you say? I said this would be his last year in New England in pro football in new. Okay right He. He might choose to go somewhere else he. Hails seem to be hell bent on plan. Forty five code seems to be helping saying he's not GonNa play for me at the age of forty miles and you have something very interesting. Say Last Tuesday you said fans let this sink in Dan. Bill Belichick wanted to get rid of Tom. Brady for Jimmy Garoppolo Did you watch the game yesterday. Exactly what I I wanted to get rid of Tom. Brady for Jimmy Garoppolo Shimmy Garoppolo to red zone interceptions. It almost cost them a game against Arizona braided touchdown missile. I'm talking now. Thank you very but he's not playing another three years Guinea. Tom Brady will not be the reason. And what we glossed over over at Tom Brady was not very good the last half of the season but we allow to be seduced by what he did the thirty first ranked defense and AFC championship Michigan game the Kansas City chiefs and then we saw him put up a twenty six. QBR Didn't also touchdown threw an interception in the super bowl. But we all forget about that. Because Tommy on another Super Bowl Tom Brady did not play well. Tom Brady have played well. One game this year and that was against the Pittsburgh steelers. Did you know this in his last five AH Games. Tom Brady has four touchdowns. Is that good for no time breakfast. Is that good skip. No it is not good. See what happens and I will never ever say I would. You did great or good. If Tom Brady is but the thing that I noticed that I started to get older is what I could not do with the consistency. When I was in my prime skip I can throw up one hundred yards ars under seventy hundred sixty yard game back to back to back to back like it was nothing but then as I started to age get hundred here thirty forty there? Might I get to two hundred. I get to to the next week. So what you're saying. We're Tom Jealous. Says a little jealous to me. All I'm saying the numbers number speak for sale Now see fans look at look at it. He scored the intercepted the ball because the military wives tape because coach Belichick saw guy have a twenty six or twenty five rating running against the giants. baller that family seven fourteen against the Baltimore Ravens with thirty eight. Say Jealousy all. Oh you want to but the numbers bear teeth and Qbr for another touchdown color. Wait a minute I look good dog on in and take him forty seven have to get to sixteen bath great They might want a super bowl but it damn sure won't be because it will be because of that defense really path. I remember somebody saying. I'm not sure it was Tuesday but probably was might have been last Monday. New England's defense said the hall of fame across me is over right dead overrated product of all the week opposition. My thought I heard. That's what I heard the Patriots. All guys it's not even rated so so wait a second. That's what it is the quarterback you call walk it to them that I call bounced to could not win a game in which Tom Brady Brady managed only seventeen points at Philadelphia and he couldn't against the overrated New England defense the fraudulent New England defense. He could muster any more than in ten points so is he overrated. I'd like two plus two equals four. He's over. This is what I want you to do. Okay because so I'm I'm what I'm GonNa do for you. I'M GONNA take Gallup and I'm GonNa Take Amari away and I'm GonNa Take Zeke and I'm having loud calls Mr last quarter. I mostly high the guy idea because you remember what dad look like. When he didn't have any didn't have Amari Cooper entirely without? Do you get to this. Trust me on this deck has is not had Zeke all season long okay. I can't even recognize this Zeke. You'll Eliot I'm sorry to this game I will give you this. Tom Brady did not play very well. Yesterday on the road at Philadelphia in high wind bothered the other quarterback boy. The other quarterback didn't look very good either Pity right by the way who won. The game helped me out. appraisers warned about coming your restaurant all the flip it around now. It's only a losers restaurant I don't know which way it is. It all depends on what I don't know I we. The whatever. All I know is that Tom Brady's team would Tom Brady. At quarterback back did win the football game seventeen to ten a pivotal turning point game at Philadelphia coming off a bye week and Tom Brady. Eighty did it in a game in which they could not protect him. They couldn't run the football one outs of a bit and in which his receivers look like what I always say three guys from Dorchester because Mohammed Sununu. I gotTa tell you. I plotted the move. When they signed him he just looks slow slow to me even looked slower returning punts? Now you've even got him back there and he turned his ankle trying to return a punt and Philip got concussed. Yesterday on the one touchdown pass that he caught and I thought an Akil Harry was going to be a difference maker. Maybe he will rise and shine because he's just a raw rookie planners the first game but he had little to no impact on that game. which brought us to Julian Element? There were times yesterday. I swear to you the eagles were triple covering Julian. They they didn't just have bracket coverage they had like triangle covered on on third. And whatever. Let's put three guys on him because he's all Brady's the Brady goals came down to that and it came down to this. I got to say this upfront because my biggest takeaway from the game was. That's the best. I've seen the eagles defense since play since the NFC championship game at home against Genie's Vikings going into the Super Bowl number that thirty eight to six seven Kevin. When they just tromped on the Vikings they shut down case keenum and all they just shut shut him down and almost shut them out? We'll I saw that defense comeback together. Yesterday I saw a healthy secondary that was starting to click and I must tell you by the end of this game. I had some deep dark thoughts about boy. It's going to be tough from Dallas cowboys to go in there and be that defense playing at that level because that was impressive. But just as unimpressive was the fact that the New England patriots are playing with Marshall. newhouse it left tackle trying to protect. Brady's blindside is Marshall newhouse playing for his seventh. NFL team win. Isaiah wind comes back this this week against my Dallas cowboys at New England next Sunday. I promise you Marshall Newhouse very possibly. We'll be looking for his eighteen. That's what you got against against that Philly pass rush because listen that front seven is big bad hell Lacey's come. After the quarterback front seven and Brady was throwing on his his heels the whole game. It's hard man. It reminded me of deck at Atlanta in two thousand seventeen with Chaz green at left tackle. Just understand this you everybody always complained and this is the problem that I really have. This is my crooks issue with Tom. Brady Tom Brady supports when things go whale is always Tom. But the moment it goes bad. Look receivers look at Marshall Newhouse Sunny. Michelle can't run scale with that Thang team. So now with Marshall Sean. NEWHOUSE that left tackle big out a guy that he didn't resign so they feel but I I want to go back to the receivers like you said. They went to Philly and he pointed up there and they got three guys from North North Jersey. But when Tom South dirt yeah so when you go there and do that you don't say anything about Ah Tom Brady. Did you see what he did. You don't miss the receive with but the moment he's Mickey O'Hara could have an impact. I did nobody thought. Did you see anything from Nikki. LYRIC IS GONNA be Randy Moss. I thought maybe he'd give them a little snap. Crackle pop one maybe a couple of big catches. We actually made him to bow all. You got to throw Dorothy. Did you get the door said. I thought there's some really good deals that why he had nineteen incompletions with three ways. I what did they do this just in Tom Brady is not mobile. Did Not know that from his first year. Starting on non-mobile. I've been many times. Did you see Tom Brady. Forced into a rollout. You realize his accuracy drops about fifty percent when he rolls out of the pocket while he's got great pocket feet as as far as sidestepping or stepping up in the pocket. ovoid rush he got away from a coup a few sides yesterday he did. But when you start to roll out Tom Brady. That means you are flat out desperate. Because they could not block the phillies front. They were all over him all day and yet he hung in there and could i. I show you one sequence in which I thought Tom Brady late. In the second quarter was taking over the football game it gets to third and seven at the Philly forty five we we see this Riffa place this element. That's that's a pretty sweet. Throw to element double covered and then he throws to Ben Watson Thirty eight year old tight end over the middle and it's I goal before and then he hits element and he dropped it. There was a play in their Rodney. McLeod got his hands on a Baltimore into the corner. I don't know if it should have been picked because that's not what you pay him to do. Yes is okay but again. It was off his fingertips but that ball was not off. Julian elements fingertips. That should have made it ten. All and then the touchdown pass element woman through would have made it twenty to ten because they had a few goal between so they almost pulled away if catches that ball that whole plainfield tilts to New England at that. Okay instead they were buying ten to nine at what about what about the interception that was about to happen to Julian. Edelman wrote down by the they can bend over. You was that an under throw overthrow overthrown inception. I'm so I want you to have that same. Because he should have caught. It caught up day man. Hey listen who through more off off target passes in this game helped me out Carson Wentz or Tom Brady because every time I looked up Carson wentz was wild. Hi Y Y Y it. It was horrendous. I'm not here to debate that I thought Carson Wentz played one of his worst games that I've ever seen him play. May you know I watch all his games. But that being it he's still had the ball. I gue- Lars Hands. For the game tying touchdown guy said that Jim about to about a month and a half ago. The Guy said the builder burn it we were. We were catching up saving. Lives like you consider that. Drop on that. I'll stop. Stop head start over the wrong shoulder lors looking over his shoulder and then he comes back to his light comes straight over his head. That is a really difficult catch and that is not a drought O.. Oh see you put the play on Cola Look Shannon Sharpe himself to Nelson Galore Galore bouncing all those things. Oh golly that's what you do. Every time. Somebody drop the path for Tom. Brady or DAD press. You say you're supposed to catch that. That's not a genius. He told the catch it. What's the degree of difficulty on? I don't doc ID nine on a scale attack. Don't care if a hundred and fifty on the difficult meter you said that the NFL receiver. You should get you change a hey look over your left shoulder wait. It's over my right shoulder and I gotta go up here and it's on the back line and get my feet inbounds. That's a really hard catch. Don't worry about about two feet. They hit the ground incomplete. Anyway get the ball. The referee worried about the Shannon shop would have put that in his back. Clock is in the hall of now you can follow you. Will you compare Amari. You compare a Gallup. You compare everybody they drop a pass for your quarterback to me now. I'm then he should've called that difficult. He looked over his left. Who is a really hard candy drug lords not that good Ever been that guy. That's not that's not what I'm talking about the NFL receiver and he's paid handsomely to catch the football Did he catch it. So it's bad. As walking to play. He was awful. Had the ball in the house hand with a chance to tie the game with did ago. But you know what it wasn't GonNa Happen. I wouldn't even nervous about it because when I saw him go like this and go like that. I said there's no way he's GonNa bring this went down. Of course not not nervous do did you. Did you see when he dropped Atlanta. Uh what did he have to do with that was when when he wants to hit him. Up The rail media have to turn left. Did he have eternal right house. Don't have to test you. You're making my case. I told you not very good. What is he not dropped a bunch of passes yes he does? He doesn't have great hands but that was triggered by this guilt. Thinking about what you just said. He's not not very good. He doesn't have good hands but still has to try that out there. They had to sign Jordan Matthew because he's played D.. Jack he played with our Sean. Take Away Talk to receive when you take away as number one running back you lose your right tackle all pro pro bowl player halfway through the game and do that now with sure. Let us see Ed Murray. Cooper in Gallup's zeke allow Collins. Go to New England and do that. How many snaps had always helped me out because you I didn't watch because he barely played half the snaps and he's been hurt the whole year? He's been kind of a shell of themselves what he was laughing. Hold on I thank you for bringing that up I said take a marring. Gallon and take Zeke Physique. Not doing anything I will have. This went out and I want you to take our colleagues. I should him down. Also Gallup had knee surgery during this season. He missed two games with knee surgery. That's what it's come down to stop it. You see what did now you tell me the meniscus you had been this guy got back on the back you start telling Jeannie in the next door to you run. It don't make you L.. After he missed too many Jason Peters Miss with me surgery you three games. Okay okay. Do you If if Dallas had half of what Philly has in firepower in its front seven on defense this division would be way over because my team would be unbeaten. Ayton right to him. Head Amara and Gallup and Randall Cobb. Along with your over all I know is I can tell you what those Philly fans are doing. Call them the radio shows philly right now. WIP They're saying. Nick foles was the Super Bowl. MVP AGAINST MILL check. Yeah can we scored forty one points at home Carson. Wentz could only manage ten points. That's what they're saying. They're saying whereas Nick foles WHO. We need the Jacksonville okay. Well he wouldn't be catching tales from team built a shrine a lot. He had an opportunity Dan Philly early but he bounced around the League. He had a great moment he had he had his good at three or four games. You'll ever see a quarterback. But that's what he is giving me so this notion that they that they superbowl or he's an. MVP quarterback is being disingenuous. You know that I know that all I know is against what you called an overrated New England Defense Carson. Wentz winced through three quarters had a grand total of ninety four yards passing if Dak Prescott had dared to have ninety four against Detroit or whoever it was through three quarters I would never hear the end of it on this show. Why would hear about it for the next ten years however long back play look Walkerton with bay? He who's inaccurate. He missed are thinking whiteside when the game could could really opened a game he missed the monorail pro and it needs to be up and down. He shot the ball five yards out of bounds. He threw threw the ball five yards out of bounds to earth. He was awful yesterday with all that being saying he still put the ball. Aguilar's hands for a game tied red touchdown. That's what he did as bad as he was. But you know why he's still had a chance to do that. Because the quarterback on the other side with equally and to wrap up Carson winces day. Do you realize that it took until four minutes were left in the game for him to pile up some garbage yards because he had three big throws throws you guys on your guy did it to our whiteside for twenty nine out of the end zone is a nice throw but it was a broken play. We're scrambled left in the end zone. And just gunned it up up. The field closes his eyes and through closer that he knew the man when he he did get Aga- catch one for nine thousand nine hundred only through Zachary's for twenty one these all against semi Previ- Previ- prevent defense is where it's just like here. You can have that because you can't have that. Oh selecao Green Bay delegates that when you buy four six day only prepo thirty the three so let me get right. They're playing seventeen but they're not playing preventing thirty one three. I don't do late in the game. If it's a seven point game aim and you gotta get in the end zone there you can have that underneath you can have the video green bay. We'll see I saw green bay play. nose-to-nose rest Mandalay whole game to go back and look when I'm confused. So they were doing that and dad didn't pile up those numbers when it was seven. Nothing fourteen to seventeen not nothing twenty four to thirty one three computer. Why would he do then all of a sudden Su he threw onto Amari? Cooper would have been a big game dropped opted and by the way Amari started the game yesterday with another drought and now Dallas still tied for second and drops into leagues. Helped me understand Amari. The ball hit some are hand is the drop. The ball hits angular handling the the degree of difficulty. I didn't think Ayler is going to catch it. That's not a drop unit. They will get the beginning of the Mari play right here. That's like a degree of difficulty of a one and some right there actually is not right right there right there. No it's gotta catch is not if you watched him the last ten games last year. You'd say he'd put that wall in his back pocket last ten games. Yeah I'm talking about Right now I'm talking about yesterday. Galore had an opportunity with the game on the land to make a candy. Sometimes give you do realize that you're required the job. Requirement of a receiver is to make difficult catches in the most crucial of times. Before when the ball's near bill bill chicks thinking. I'll take that I can live with that because it's a Mac zero blitz. Let's keep but that's what the guy got to play with every week. The coach on the other side said I want the ball to him. Well he has the play. Would they've got me all time. Security blanket in Zakar Switch Dak Prescott. No longer have you. You GotTa Win. Nope you didn't have that Guy Zakar Zakar it's or bust. And every time he caught a ball you should I said his triple covering cause wins. Just looks for where's eighty six. I gotTa Find Eighty six. You're making my argument. Because all he has is Earth's he doesn't have a Meikeljohn his head. That's all these doesn't have Michael Gallup. He doesn't have rental car opened. Michael Gallup and all of fame home also. Now now you just not you came out here. You said Michael Gal is GonNa have a bus season. You Watch out for now all all of a sudden you relitigate. Because you won't Die Dag so much that you want to say gallons dropped a lot of a lot of interceptions shows a lot of interceptions tied for second. Touchdown passes loops Hobo. What's Russell by week? Wait so we're GONNA get one guy is take arson Winston and Dallas Goddard and as they sit on the telecast yesterday those two together that's probably the best incontinence recouping and Gallup rover Dallas. We're talking about tied in talking. No you don't just throw them over. Jason witten excuse me and Blake Jawline. Okay I'll tell you what I'll give you enjoyed Matthew Gimme Michael Galloping Amari Cooper okay. All right well Tom Brady wasn't I wasn't happy after that. One and now the cobwebs come to town.

It was held to only forty five rushing yards but hauled in a receiving touchdown and celebrated by doing his best Stack warm-up Impression Dag led the way okay through the air with four hundred forty four yards three. The cowboys are now six four was sole possession of first place in the NFC so Shannon. How impressive the cowboys? Yesterday I was very impressed with their offense and Dak Prescott skipping a couple weeks ago. That was the best game but this was the best game that I've ever seen him play. Well ever seen comparison in La for the simple fact. Is that what we've seen is that when teams normally bottle of seek yet he throws for huge number but they don't win not only did they. Bottle up Zeke but either Marwood limited but I think they put a little extra attention on tomorrow also and so. He did what he did going to gallop going to Randall. COBB BOB spreading the ball around to the titans in so when you factor that in that his running game was non existent. Amari Cooper was not the Amari Cooper that we've seen over the last year and he was able to do that and notice that said. I was impressed with Daqing. His offense because the defense still twenty seven points to a JEB driscoll led offense is that's unacceptable it's kept Jeff just is is not good. He's so bad he was remember now. He started the season in Cincinnati Cincinnati. Cut You well you got to. It'd be bad. And that's what he's more of a running quarterback than a pro and he was able to throw. I mean fifteen or twenty six to nine two touchdowns. No that's not good. That's not good but their offense was great. I still believe the game plan because you remember as is your Zeke Halima's Today on this very teen now. What and Matt Patricia is a disciple of coach belching coach? Belichick tries to do what. What do you do? Well what do you WANNA do. Okay no you're not getting the you can beat me. We because basically he took away a which was the. He's he's be Amari Cooper was in and out of the in and out of the lineup so he beating with the DNA Gallup Cobb tidy Kudos Dak Prescott. You get an a plus plus for me today. A plus plus Yes lord have mercy. I don't know what you've gone from an F.. Half like every every week you give him an all sudden he gets an a plus plus today he deserved maybe A. B.. He misses throws that I thought he should made and yet I'm I'm GonNa Hark back to what I said Friday on this show and it's the God's Truth About The Dallas cowboys they are now all DAX team because he's really really all they have right now. I told you Friday. It's absolutely true. They can't run it. They can't stop the run. Any anybody's run. The the again scarborough yesterday was both scarborough. They drafted him on the seventh round. Cut Him and he outplayed Zeke. It seems like every week some rival. Back outplays Zeke. So they can't run it. They can't stop the run they definitely can't stop the pass and they can't take the ball away on defense because they're now tied for twentieth in takeaways. I can't remember the last takeaway. And it's Zeke. I'm sorry it's deck or bus. Now because Zeke is just I. I'm going to say it one more time. Just to shelve himself. And I'm tired of hearing that teams come in geared up. Put The box and stop Zeke Bologna. I've I been watching carefully. They don't put eight in the box anymore. They just play it straight up because nearly every first down is the predictable. Handed to Zeke up bright right up to gut for one or no gain. That's all you got and every time it happens I just I just get up and pace in the room like why would you waste another down for a a non yard game. We'll throw ball. If that's the case they got the line of scrimmage back no I don't have it stack is just straight up. It's it's conventional defense. On first I down and for some reason either. The line can't win or Zeke has lost his burst. I keep telling you I don't see sudden I don't see any electric and and here's the status of the night for me. Would you believe that Tony Pollard. In six games this year has played twelve or more snaps in those six games games. Dallas is six and six with Tony Pollard. Playing twelve or more snaps. What does that tell you? What did you see from Tony Pollard? I saw two or three runs ons where it looked like he was hemmed in. He cut toward the sideline and all of a sudden puts a foot in the ground. Right between two defenders and get six or seven yards. You saw him on all crossing crossing rock because he can really catch it. That's what he did more than at Memphis and he caught it for twenty one yards. He at least has given them a little bit of electricity. Just this is like a little bolt or two of lightning week last week. He didn't play a Wa housing. Jason Garrett I duNno I can ask Jason Garrett Whole Lot Oughta questions so I'm back to Jeff Driscoll and I agree with you and I tweeted before the game right before kickoff. You can look it up. I said watch that. They will make a star out of Jeff Driscoll today because he will hurt them with his legs as well as on more than he did and they made him look like Lamar Jackson. Yesterday they went to Detroit. Went six of thirteen on on third down and to strike despite the a plus plus day for my quarterback. Would you believe that my offense is backed up second and ten at the thirteen yard hardline with one fifty four left in the game and it's still a seven point game and I'm like Oh no don't give the ball Jeff Driscoll 'cause he's going to beat us and no gopher to probably at all men they'll probably make vacate beat us that Hall would Jeff Driscoll because that guy up the the jets guy. What's that guy's name Sam Darnold? He beat us. Skip due to your point. Is that you look at the numbers. And he threw for four forty four. Just imagine if his defense had given a maternal were to what would those number being now may maybe skip if he gives them a turnover. Early early DAX not in the game. He doesn't pile these numbers but it just goes to show you how methodically they were. If you look at this again. Eight to fourteen on third down. You win a lot of gains aims. If you're in the fifty percent on third downs because now you're getting more opportunity to get the ball in the end zone and there were fifty seven percent third-down yesterday. By the way they are running away with the lead lead conversion they might make might be a record. Okay thank you. That's all you got is the quarterback converting on third down every once in a while. Zeke Zeke has gotten the one or two yards on down but mostly it's the quarterback throwing it on third down and yell yet. I want Hark back to a statement that Kevin Burkhardt made live live national on Fox. I don't know if his national but it was an region as I think it was but anyway this is right after Jason Witness. I catch the game if if we can hear what Kevin said on Fox win told us the formula is flipping. We have to come out and attack with the game. I thought that was fascinating. That's it. They have flipped flipped the four no after her. Dad's Jason Wisdom. Your English major you. There's a difference between eds and engy said flipping. He didn't say flipped. So you've got to stop this. I see what's the difference now. You're just doing. Some Samantha Samantha. Mu Majored in semantic doesn't yeah flip mean now we are a Dak.. Prescott team said is flipping. Meaning we are going to become changing. Yes thin chain John. What was the what what happened? Did it flip last week so I I WANNA know. I wish you'd had last because the last couple of days went back to twenty-one anywhere nowhere when they play Green Bay did it flip. When they played New Orleans fell mel behind behind behind coomer roster core? I kept telling you in those Games was twenty one in the lineup. Yes in Shannon Sharp. The hall of Famer keeps insisting they'll go as far as equal take them he is the driving force. And they kept Zeke early in those games and they just fall farther and farther behind so just throw it down their throat trying to make sure I'm hearing you correctly so what you're telling me. Is that when they fall seven or fourteen. twenty-one Dak Prescott has not gonNA pass ask and all that time. We'll some did but I told you the one girl. Mari was the turning point of the year. So fall in the hands and goes into into our section with Eh. You see scale what you're doing here. What about that Michael Gala Mate would that Dak Prescott? That Michael Gallon is back children throw and he went up had to fight to the DVD hands ends aren't tipped up in the air and then caught more to throw it in his pass interference to start with world will in fact. I think it was flagged. I think it was. Yeah Excu. Okay blipped flipping. I it's flipping. I going I've already gone to rebel. Draft shopping I'm going to rebel dry to sample. I have been going I have been going. That's what he's saying. We have been flipping into Joel passing team. Because that's really all they have they got and I'm I'm being honest about this. I do not love my team but I love my quarterback. I don't love because when you go decker bust that's dangerous recipe because that's a recipe for any given Sunday disaster. Because here's what's going to happen because this this was going to happen when they go belly up and they will go belly up. You will blame. Zeke you'll blame coach you Janey and people at home did you just get battles missing Jason Garrett one time we'll wait a second until he it's Blake with capacity in that cinches the game that wipes types out the clock I'm in trouble Jeb Driscoll's going to pay me to go coach hold on. I gotTA give coach. Clap a standing ovation for that game. Thirty five seven at Detroit. I gotTa give him credit wait about votes black point. There was a story that on Thursday. He called the team together. He said. Should I take all the blame. That's what he told the media afternoon but my point is way to go coach. Is that when we have for you when they win. I haven't heard him. He's being sarcastic. Now I hear Code Garrett but the moment he came motivated so what happened came here Jane. Thank you for bringing up motivation avation. Because would you believe that for the seventh time in ten games. Yesterday they immediately fell behind. Did they look like they were ready to step on the throne darnold hopeless underdog would jeb driscoll quarterback in fact Pam. Oliver said yesterday that had told her just before the game. We need to put them away early so that they don't have any hope with their backup quarterback. Did they do that. No no amaury drops the first ball thrown to him. And then Zeke drops it on the carpet in Detroit recovers and and Goes Bobo Moon touchdown. Seven nothing you like that coach. Clap they ready to see. The miscues is his phone. When when do they look ready to play play? They better be ready next Sunday. Or there's going to be over fast miscues. That's coach Whoo when they go when they didn't they look ready. What else get out seven times and ten games let me let me let me make my point but when things go well will? They moved the ball. They have over five hundred yards of offense Dak Prescott. Four forty four three touchdown looks like a fide. All machine now one entire is the coach mention. The moment they lose. He's mentioned the topic of conversation. I didn't take a look like well oiled yesterday. A better look like at next on England. Oh you got little to no chance give you just see it they will. They're running away with third-down commercial. They were eight of fifteen which is fifty seven percent five hundred yards of of total offense and that vision how many holes is number four. Lifted them out of. It's unbelievable just by his body language. He just wills go back. Go Okay I get that. So but Jason Garrett not the head coach then but he is only when they play bad and lose. So here's the thing about Ezekiel Elliot. What did did he used for his celebration when he finally took the little little? Swing Pass El okay. He did that he does that. Yeah and what did that tell you. I'll tell you what it told me. He does the deck and looks good. I thought he was paying homage to a quarterback who was his close friend. Also who is become. The driving force is crazy. I fall track and field. Athlete calls coach and the Dak okay so he is in the past when he scored. It was always doing the Zeke. Either doing this or jumping in the army cattle. What he would always do a Zeke a celebration but now he's doing Adak celebration so I think even he because he's a good teammate? Who'd guy and I think about big EGO? I think they're really a good friends off the field. Yeah we know their teammates but all teammates aren't good friends or best friends off the field. I sincerely believe these guys. Because they came in they came in together. So there's there's always gonNA be running back one of the quarterback and the yesterday he he made a Ni- snag of a ball behind the reason it was behind him because it was a blitz in the DB he gets his hand out and sidearm under the DB's arm and Zeke picked it off the carpet and turned and there was pretty much. Nobody home I did see burst but but again it's all green. It's all like like Oh now you got an opening. Now you can just sorta take off running in the end zone. And that's the first burst I've seen balch. What a month you know he? He's not running into standing Kabul anymore. I yeah that's a fifty million guarantee. Go Buy Goods Florida so we got an overpaid running back. In a way underpaid quarterback troy. Aikman I did reach way tweet now. We know that we know skilled. There's no sick we know why hadn't signed this contract. They you know the price is only going okay at this point man who bets on himself I love it I love it too. I love it too good Gig. You deserve forty meal with one hundred and twenty because the golf. You deserve a different quarterback that is getting it done and really it was supposed to be a quarterback duel between Lamar Jackson and John Watson but it was Lamar who stole the show. Does Shawn was held under two hundred yards with. I know touchdowns Anna Pick while being sacked six times lamar however racked up over three hundred yards and had four passing touchdowns in a dominant forty in one. Two seven win. The Ravens are now eight and two on the year right behind the nine and one patriots so Shannon how big a threat are the Ravens to the Patriots. They're great threat and skip the beginning of the year. We knew Lamar Jackson. Legs were dynamic. We saw on display last year over the last half of the season the question weather and Wii thought they were struggled last year in the playoffs. What happens if they fall behind because I don't believe his arm? Talented good enough correct. I don't believe he can throw the ball consistent enough at that point. Skip to get them back into the ball game they fall they fall behind by large number. They come back valiantly against the chargers but they lose he does a one eighty his is arm his ability to throw the football the confidence in the commission of which he throws it we get the allowing him to throw the football. They're just not throwing it always third in twelve thirty. No no the affordable on I thought about any area on the field. And he's throwing the ball with confidence another four touchdown day with no turnover. Skip his legs dynamic how he got out of that. I think it was second one thirty one. He joked juked another guy just to get back. To the line of scrimmage putting the dirt squeeze to two other guys has off to the races again they have the type of team and the way. This young man is playing because we're seeing him get better right before. Is You know. Sometimes you watch these Geo. They have the simulation with a plant. You plant the flowers and the time he left and the flowers start to bloom you wanting this guy bloom right before your eyes in real time like every single week. He's getting Bob like wait a minute. Yes fast he's unbelievable book and they have confidence. He has confidence and he's gaining use either way. His teammates talk about it. You see a marketing mark. Ingram you see the way. The team skipped when he comes off the field. The defense they go greedy coming off the field they offense they love this kid and he loves being in that position and he says I just got to be a quarterback. He says I'm out. I'm on a team that they believe me. This team believed in me and my teammates. Believing me now. I just gotTa go be quarterback but I know I can be skill. They have an opportunity and they look. They don't have the big names on defense. There are no. There's no ray Lewis. No aired read. No but they got guys that play hard the secondary's deep with Jimmy Smith Marla Humphrey. I think car is there. They play whale. And they do it as speeders mark mark now no no pete is gone. He's gone yeah yeah he's a no no he's there yeah. Hey Yeah Jigsville mortgage fetus. Model Humphry car. They got they got. They got a lot more draft picks to make a long story short and Earl Thomas in a secondary. We'll skip. They're playing really really well and right now. There's no the debate. Lamar Jackson is play. The quarterback position better than Tom. Brady the questionnaires can you go into New England. 'cause you gotta be flawless to beat them bearing in a playoff game. You can't turn it over. You play the cross double But I do believe right now. They're the best team in the AFC. Although the New England has one bureau losses this team has the ability in the capability with the way. The quarterback is playing go to New England and win a vault one thing. I'm virtually sure of they're going to have to do you that I'm almost sure of they won't be able to do that. I just think it's too hard to beat Brady and Belle check in foxborough but if any organization has a history of doing this has a legacy of doing this if any locker room just on its historical significance. That people have come before for them. If any locker room thinks it can go up and win at Foxboro. This locker room thinks it can because ray did it and suggs is done it. And they've just has done it and done it. They have been Brady's Kryptonite at Foxboro not has played three. No they should be because you know they beat them and Joe FLACCO and AH game. The Joe flacco played I think early in his career and then they beat them to get to the Super Bowl and Lee Evans dropped two touchdowns would've won the game or the one the game so so every once in a while in the midst of NFL season something rare and wonderful happens where you just sit back and say that's happening and it just keeps on happening and I keep on waiting for it to come back to Earth but it only lifts higher into the heavens and what they did. Yesterday was highly impressive. Were you say what. That defense made Shawn Watson. I love look awful right. He had a cure of nine yesterday. Role Moats Yeah Romo. QBR Lamont Ma had a QBR of ninety three. He vaults up the list or at the top in the nineties. A lot lately has so oh. Two switches got flipped in Baltimore just over the last month. The teams switch got flipped right. But the the quarterbacks really got flipped. Because I don't know what's happened since they lost at home to Baker Mayfield. They lost forty to twenty live. What forty two twenty five and Baker threw for three forty two and a touchdown in that game? What yeah? That's what that right the margin play bad turnovers just the turnovers okay. So how were they doing. What is the formula? They are running away with the rushing. He's like not not even close. No they're averaging two hundred and four rush yards again. Thanks in large part to the quarterback and next on the list are the forty niners at one forty nine so they have a fifty to fifty five six five fifty five yards per game in average also also by two hundred well. I haven't either and Lamar Jackson's completion. Percentage has risen from fifty eight last year which is just not not very good. You'll definitely want to be sixty four. And he's sixty six and he. He doesn't throw it a lot. His two hundred seventy nine attempts rank only twenty four th right league. So they're not bombs bombs away no but when he throws it every time I look up. It's not accurate. It's deadly Robo quarterback. Now you just throwing it right on the numbers numbers every time like in the end zone just throws darts where I say. All that's touches give to your point about rushing is because they have three guys that'll any given Sunday can go get your hundred Edwards Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram all of these guys on a given Sunday. You go get you a hundred and there might be a time with to skip then to have been a couple of game. Two guys are the three will go. We'll get you one hundred in the same game and when you can run it like that skip get out with that opens play action you see got skipped Mark Andrews. He loves the Mark Andrews. Mark Andrews may catches. I just four his tight end the other tidy and boil make good great catches for him playing well and the thing that hurt the Houston. Texans will you plan aggressive style a defense. You need to get the ball out of your hand. DESHA will spend too much time trying to make the big. That's what he does. If if almost feast or famine and he ran himself himself into a lot of a lot of punishment. Yeah and yeah. He does so last week. I thought we were going to do stop. We didn't do it on the show but I was thinking. And who would I take for the long haul. Because I love to Sean Rights and I kept thinking I'd take to sean for the long haul. 'cause he can just throw it better than Lamar now. I'm starting to wonder I don't know about that. Maybe maybe not right. How much low you're gonNA take that kind of puts me because he's definitely taking more punishment than correct? Lamar take some down. The field doesn't seem to faze Z.. Paul Fox bet still says that New England is a heavy favorite to win the AFC. If I look at the schedules I say you know what I think Baltimore schedule is a little harder that who got at rams at Rams on Monday night and then they got the forty niners at home at bills is no oh cakewalk jet should be a cakewalk but then here we go and it gets at Cleveland. Listen Bakers had their number. He beat them in overtime. Last year's rookie at the Cleveland. Remember this so. I don't think that'll be an easy. You Watch the Texans team that showed up yesterday against Baltimore won't show up at home against the Patriots okay. They'll play tails off against the Patriots. You you might be right and I'll still take the patriots skill. That December eighteenth is still looming. I think that's the game that people wanna see all right. But what's looming is that there are some trap game like some Minefield Games on this thing where you could lose at home to the forty niners. You could lose it the bills. You could lose it Cleveland and you definitely definitely could lose it. The Rams on Monday night my point is they might lose a couple more games. They might lose one more. They're going to be in trouble. Even if if the chiefs go get revenge at New England if you ask me last year could the ravens go to La. And beat the rams. But I don't know if you've noticed but have you seen the way Jarod Goff. I play lately Bicknell last night. They can use like trubisky or Golf Golfer. They they look like the guy to me skew. She's got a good ask. Ask and you and I question what happened. Yeah what the hell was Chicago looking at. What made them Thanksgiving that? You know what Mitchell trubisky moving forward would be better than to Sean. It's give I can give you Patrick Mahomes. Because he played the big twelve Texas Tech. Yeah yeah he was exciting but a whole lot of people didn't see his game because you're not staying up that late so I'll give you that. Okay what does Shawn Watson with television awful lot and you chose Mitchell trubisky. Who beat the Shawn? But you said you know what we believe. You'll be a better quarterback that's why they're getting killed and they pulled a guy with two possessions left in the ballgame then he was hurt Bellingham shoulder both. That's where you come up with all the excuses like chase stand. Okay go taking yeah okay and to finish this up. New England does get too close with at Cincinnati and then at home buffalo and Miami's probably if they get through the next three. Yeah the mess. Mothers be tough for them to seventy where they won the eagles. They get the cowboys next week. They get a text at Texans. And then into the eight they get the chiefs at home my early preview of Dallas at New England I will be shocked if Dallas wins that gadot yacht really really. I'll put him down putting up. Gordon Cowboy. I'M NOT GONNA bet against my team although crazy you just told me. There's no man. Ah Bet against in sports tom he'd never been against Tom Braiding. So in other words w-wh and an angry. Tom Brady after these. Talk it up. Indecent these an expert grief right now toss six before white meal in the middle of the field and took up. Let's see eagles defense cowboys defense. I think Brady's GonNa get healthy wet. I I say a win is back. Boy How Auto Tech Prescott had his third game. Four hundred plus passing yards this season in yesterday's Today's win at Detroit. The cowboys also regained sole possession of first place in the NFC east and meanwhile eagles spell at home to Compatriots Carson Wentz Wentz completed twenty of his forty pass attempts for two hundred and fourteen yards and a touchdown once also fumbled twice losing one of them so Shannon has deck proven. He is better than once really skilled career one game. That's what you WanNa do you want to do this. You won't WANNA do. You WanNa do do what you want to skip look whence had a horrible day. There's no way that I'm looking at the seasons. There two seasons well this is a big one for Carson Wentz. There looks like okay whence would've finished twice in. Qbr in front of deck. It looks like Dag is GonNa the Finish this year in front of wins so there too okay is one of the division twice with is one it wants. PDD right here. I believe believe steel belief Iligan winning okay with that being said look. He had a bad day after lane. Johnson left the game. That's when every last one of those sacks occurred five so you say you keep talking about Brady constantly being harassed. They took him down five times. Hit Him countless others forced two fumbles in out of it and they got what the the the Patriots cover one he sure holds that ball longtime he does he does. And he's he was inaccurate yesterday. Threw the ball off target a lot but skip. He's doing this without de Jack. He's doing this without Sean. If you take Michael Gallup you took Amari Cooper way for insubstantial amount of time. It's hard for me to believe that. Dak Prescott GonNa put the numbers that he's putting currently give him that situation wishes. Put Him with Zeke. That Offensive Line Amari Cooper gallant. Rental car flippable he goes to Philly Komo. We know it was going to happen. You know what that little running back from Penn State. They took it in the second round. He's been giving them more Pompton Zeke's been given Dallas. He ran hard and well yesterday. That cast five more interceptions nine to four. So did he touchdowns look like to you which we touch in two thousand two hundred twenty one to sixteen okay. Yeah Twenty One's tied for second in the national will go. Yeah you either I owe. Oh you land work in about this whole you know what I'm in this race to finish second then what we do so you don't even know what you brought better. That's what Ricky Bobby's father told him and Ricky Bobby woke up when he was a man and decided to say. That didn't making. That's Talladega tonight. Yes I do and you know this bayless you will and you don't do anything to be second. You know what if I can be the second. I'm okay no you want to be number one not number one man Aw if I'm not mistaken. Russell Wilson is twenty two till one issue in that I thought could so thank you for bringing up Russell Wilson because you've got him still leading your MVP race a slightly new slightly idle Lamar Jackass. I'm here to make the case that Dak Prescott belongs dogs in the conversation ethics and for because if Dak Prescott hadn't had the ball taken out of his hands at the end of the Minnesota game and put in Zeke's hands for the last three plays we would be having a slightly different conversation because there's one win and if Jason Witten had gotten the call a pass interference in the end zone zone on the two point conversion pass to tie game at jets. I believe Dallas would've won that game in overtime because my quarterback was on a tear through the second half of that game. So let's just hypothetically say what if he had these very same numbers and all of a sudden they were eight and two. Wouldn't you be talking about him. He was an MVP we would but skip. Yep He's not. If Tom Brady lamb better we talk about him from. MVP would but look at the numbers that press got ten games into the season leads the whole League league in Qbr. Ten Games into season. He leads the whole league in passing yards. Is that good for a guy. You say you've been telling me for years is not accurate DAK Prescott Prescott not consistently accurate. I've heard again and again. If you WANNA know the truth. He proved last year over the last ten games he was better than Carson Wentz always beat him head to add twice ice gift. I'll say well he did also so Carson Wentz play defense. Well I'm just saying that in the game at Gerry World My quarterback in the fourth quarter and overtime time for two hundred forty three yards and three touchdowns but occasionally seeing there that boy. He's just better than should have been a blowout head. Your quarterback not throwing three peaks. It kills us in the ball game. Who is more consistently accurate Dak Prescott or Carson wentz? He's seen this year has been back. He's at sixty eight percent completions completions to sixty one percent for your guide. Your Guy I watch him a lot in fact I probably watch just about every snap. He's taken this year and there are too many sort of deer in headlights. Looking looking looking I gotta find eighty six. Where's he where's got her? I gotta throw and then Boom He. There's no question his arm strength because he can really winging winging what we are watching the game yesterday and he holds the ball too long because he's always trying to get in. I think Sean mentioned this Zach Earth in the flat for five five yard that would have made it probably thirty eight thirty seven but he throws the ball away. Try and get way down the field. Now you come back in thirty and fifteen know you is okay. Okay to take the short stuff on second down or I down and give yourself something more manageable on third down. He needs to get that through his head. I don't know if I I don't think. Dougie pecan emphasize that enough. Everything is not meant to be a home run you. We don't always have to hit it out the park. In order to be successful I see too much of that I see him too much padding the ball skip because he's trying to give receivers extra time to get open when there's somebody that's on a shorter route already open. Give him the ball ooh My quarterback gives them the ball yet. You have often accused my quarterback of dinking and acting yards per attempt this year. DOC is eight point eight yards per attempt. That's second in the League. Your guys six point six yards per attempt. That's thirty first in the league. So my guys throwing knowing it down the field much farther than you're on average when he got the name was he doing that. You know how Nick I didn't think so. Yes he was actually. If you were laughing at that point time skip you do know like once you get a nickname and people call you that for an extended period of time That's GONNA be your name for label stock up. Oh Okay Oh dig it a way to go so not only is my quarter to wait. Not only is he tied for second. In grand pollution's his receiving core is tied. For second in drops in touchdown pass tied for second touchdown passes plus tied for second in drops. And help me out. Has He had his soulmate. Omega Receiver Amari Cooper for the NOPE. It's here and they're here win there. You've been there. Yeah some some not and yesterday he played exactly fifty eighty five percents of the snaps because he's still got a knee or ankle. I don't know what it is. He won't talk about it. They won't talk about it but he stands and watches a lot of plays because they they won't talk about it because I don't want you to try to keen on what it is me or is it illegal. I don't know SIS sooner. They put it on the pain people. Start targeting that injury so I tell you nothing. News is leg injury. So does my quarterback have Zakar. Nope does he have Dallas Qatar. Sorry doesn't no no no no skill. We just had this conversation. And so I'll give you. I'll give you got her. I WanNa Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup you WANNA deal. I'll take those two guys okay. I I will cook but I won't go but I'M GONNA give Jason Witten. Oh no no no no no no no no no no no no no. I don't WanNa Shannon genuine. No no I will. I Will Gallup it. I won't Cooper uh-huh because you seem to think that that hurts so you should have no problem says okay. I'll do that straight up but but again I don't have that security blanket. Would you see Jason Win yesterday. You've been making fun of him. You know he can get open for five yards and catches sometimes for eight yards and catch it and then what happens nothing skill you do have a security blanket no go Michael Gallon Call Amari Cooper because he could beat any coverage he can. He's right and he hadn't been right all year got hurt in training camp and was never right right from Dan Luger. Nobody that her he put together one eighties and two hundred yard game so stop this. He might be more nick now. They what he has been in in the past but to say that. Oh He's just who've been just goodness out with. I don't know how you stop it. What did I tell you before? The season started no quarterback in the national football. The League will have more pressure on his shoulder pads than Carson Wentz will because of the Nick foles legacy that he left not only in the locker room but but but in with that big old super bowl trophy an MVP trophy and he hung forty one on Bill Belichick and one super bowl in the same defense you do believe the same defense I think it ranked fourth one sport than the regular season that year. Going into the zone right now. They're playing a historic pace. They give it up about ten and a half points a game which is on pace to beat the Baltimore she meant phillies. No no no no difference really good. Going Eagle Eagle de Patriots. Defense use me. Just remember that that's super bowl combined for the most yards the two super bowl teams have ever compiled Except it was for all time. It wasn't just for the Super Bowl. What is it like eleven hundred yards right but together daybreak has six thirty four? I think that he threw five. Oh five to have another one hundred something Russian and Fairly with over five hundred because they had a well over and so two quarterbacks or no two teams have put up more yards than those two did in a super bowl. Brady set the all time play record for any. The plan came to me so I had to do it. I thought users come to you. Oh so now what. Oh so. What about record-setters editors do they get in? I Love Ricky Ricardo woodhead. They want to be excited because they broke her record. Realization fit in. But I call it a meal L. Hanging in private room who has more pregnant forward because all the sudden the eagles are a five hundred team and those Philly fans you know and how quickly they are to who they're going to be saying. What would what is up with our quarterback we hold Tom? Brady is seventeen. And he can't win a home game. All of this is that the man is handicapped without your because I remember this before you got here with every week. This man used to come out here and there was a certain number of ADA. Okay and he he's throwing zee on social ex again so bad. He said eight was handicapped and his quarterback Willie was. Oh Wow so what are they doing. Well when I threw up the X.. He was the best receiver in pro football and he deserved the money he got so he couldn't keep earning Adair's was handicapping. Your quarterback what the Hell is agile are doing to walk into one. Okay but Aga- lor never was Dez Bryant to start with Dez. This was dead. It does not matter at the end of the day if I come on a James Beard Award winner or you some modest Bacon Dinner Midwest Ohio if you burn the meal you burn the meal right so if one guy is handicap in the quarterback and the other guys handicapping the quarterback. Your hair decal Aguilar. You saw skip bayless. Would Dan Right. Withdrawal Oh I remember Seattle Room. The ball came up his hand. You like Cathy ooh came here doing. I'm doing what Jerry soon say. I'm done gone the best requested. Maybe they do. You believe Nikki. I'll know skip Jordan Mathews bad I love Jordan Mathews from Vanderbilt. Does he was the all time. SEC leader Eater and reception but let me let me tell you how much they love it. They love him so much. They released him every other team. He's got released because they don't have anybody else and he knows the office they keep bringing it back. What if that deal you Jon? GRUDEN traded Amari Cooper. Didn't love it happens. It didn't release the trade. He got a first. Yeah things Jon Gruden starting to look pretty now. Mind uh-huh well it was supposed to be a QB duel between the mark. Jackson and to Shawn Watson but it was Lamar stole the show the Ravens. QB racked up over three hundred total yards and had four passing touchdowns in a dominant forty one to seven win. Two of those touchdowns were running back. Mark Ingram who was pumped up introducing Lamar to the media after the game. You gotta see this now. It's like to show to the man the myth the legend the MVP front runner. Anybody say something different about that and come see me right here. Be More outside the bank issues that come see me about that trust. Woo Woo Lamar Jackson in the flesh. Yes Sir Robin all right foxsports. NFL analyst Michael Vick joining us today. You just love the energy there. Okay Michael how much better can lamar yet at this point. I think he can get better but I think right. Now he's probably he's probably peaked out. what more can you get. I think as far as him moving forward of his career is just GonNa be about consistency and that consistency is gonNA lie You know him playing this game and being themselves not changing anything but at the same time. How long can you keep this coat? That can Baltimore the more. Keep this coaching staff together to coast offense when I think about Lamar his success right now. I know where it comes from office coordinator Greg Roman. It's come from James Urban. WHO's a quarterback quarterback coach and I know? He spent a lot of time Lamont because I spent a lot of time with him in Philadelphia and I know how he can be as far as detail But it's going to be about. How long can stand his offense you know? And this offense suited for him. I will do everything to try to keep Greg. Roman Costa Lamar As long as I can. But I think he's. He's showing US everything that he's going to do. Moving forward. We understand. This is what you're going to get from Lamar and he's done so consistently consistently that. I don't see anything changing. But if this offense change wet is the Mongo from there all right. So that's a big concern for me. So he's done everything right. He's made all the right decisions. Play inside the pocket outside the pocket. just shocking to me. As far as what he's been able to doing. Is this a great thing to see him. Because we had conversations about this coming out again for the record you have helped mentor him. Dinning pretty constant touch with him. Yeah Yeah and we talked about coming out of college. Let's Domon nothing's going to change. You know you just got to be yourself. And I didn't know what type offense he was GONNA end up in book book when I Sing Greg Roman and meeting room last year I knew something was ruined. It was GONNA be special so I go back to him just being in this offense consistently for years ears and that will determine if he's going to be one of the greatest of all time have you been in touch lately I reached out to him last week but to no avail but I I call them like I guess it was like a Tuesday and it was his day all out But I try to leave guys alone during the season blend within skip John. Haubert put this plan in motion when they selected. Just care because brought Greg Roman on Monday morning we are Osi but they knew in order to maximize this kid could do. They needed to find someone that thought about side of the box. Someone with this skill set and what it can do in the NFL. I believe the sky's the limit skipped. He can go even higher because I believe he will increases completion percentage. He's playing unbelievable. Get you know when I look at him and I watched him in college. And I'm like okay. He can run but they're the difference between running in college college like he was running and running against the NFL. Because you know in college you run euro for books steady hauling meal plan and then a failure rougher mortgage if you will for college tuition wishes those something entirely different those grown men. They getting paid to stop you from doing that. He's running the ball even better and I knew he could run it. But he's GonNa get even better and I was like okay. Yeah if he can progress and if his arms come becomes having good as his leg man. There'll be something but man skip. I didn't expect this. I don't think anybody of John Harbaugh tells you if anybody tells you there's all yeah we knew he was the second year we knew this was gonNA happen. They lie maybe by his third fourth fifth year skip because you see the progression but where he is. Now he's serious give you a Lotta time got have a great game you thought his name. NBP discussion where you might get. No no no. No He legit Israel. He's smack DAB in the heart of it and basically a two horse race right now between Russ Alamar Jackson. Everybody is almost like these two out. There is like secretary both of Secretary Ron Turks. I think whereas everybody and it was thirty one links back. This is how far they are in front of the field skipped. This dude is legit and I just see and I talked about this earlier. We feed this flower blooming. Every single Sunday right before is because the for five opened a court perfect quarterback rating we. Ah Yeah but that's the dolphin may take it for. And then he came back and he did it again and he's done it again and he keeps doing it at some point in time is not look is not if he's good. He's as good as advertised and I believe he's only going to get better the questionnaire that he'd like you said you used to have success team. Come in and try to steal deal all your chickens. Give cutting laying today. So they start putting Greg Roman or they start rocket a quarterback coat. Want him to see or they won't rape Roman to be a head coaching. So it's GonNa be very interesting. I agree with you cow alone. Can they keep this together to me. He's secretary by think I think he is doing away with the MVP race. And I'M GONNA use Michael's word. It's shocking because I thought he'd be good but I think think he'd be like this now. Nutmeg year almost by the snap you can seem get a little better and better. Until he's he's getting up in that great cat. It's hard to do for a month. What he did to the National Football League? He just tore it all apart. Their team is starting to tear it all apart. Because I think Houston's I know they lost lost. Jj Watt but still. I think they're pretty good. They're not like that you do that to them to just level just annihilate them dominate them and and make Shawn Watson look hapless just just sad in the pocket where he's he's looking and he's looking can't find body his accuser of nine on a scale zero zero to one hundred and it was hard to wash sean yesterday and it was a joy to watch the other young man. Skilled people don't know this but the league offense to T- they scored the most points lead. The League is gory. And they're running away the rushing title. Think about this deepening. That Lamar Llama. The last quarter last play in the green room arbitrated back up to being in draft room that date and talking to the monsoon. It's going to be okay. I talked to I think Monday morning. Wake earlier that day so it was going to be okay at any from an annuity whose Mardi in Baltimore at the time and Aaron Rodgers also set an agreement for a long time and what came from that so much motivation drive have the comes along with that and I think that's something that he'll never forget so the more we can continue to compliment him. You know make comparisons the harder go and it's not gonNA stop and there's the intangible in Mvp that you just saw live at the podium. Yeah Mark Ingram. This team loves this kid. I just love their feeding off him. They believe in him and now they're starting to believe in themselves and the defense is feeding off the receivers. These are feeding off. There's nothing like when your team believes in that guy. Yeah but there's also situation skip no matter what no matter. What the Front Office? What the head coach says about that quarterback back the team doesn't believe any and sometimes and like you said Mike he was sitting in the Green Room guys a lot of times. Get so caught up in. I WANNA go early. I want to go first. As opposed to go into the right situation. He went to the right situation. Someone that can nurture and cultivate Attala Allah. Yup We select this kid skip. You can't have conventional wisdom in your thought process of how to bring 'em alone you need. You need someone the best Hattie how the berry similar situation break Roma Winter. SUPPO with quarterback skill set up any. Rg Three is a backup. So yeah intellect select in the room. That is true at first I did not love his motion. It looked a little awkward to me. I've said to you before pure when you just had without cannon big more talk over the top all of a sudden Lamar Jackson is flicking missiles. It's just like a little and it just skip that completion world completion Andrews. Yeah where he got it in. The linebacker always gotta dislike barely over half like do things watching the game yesterday and I'm thinking about. Oh you know must strong onto the head and the gift and a curse came along with the sometimes it can screw with the accuracy and you know you mentioned the Moss throwing motion and the way the ball comes out what is accurate pass and then it has enough these the tax all areas to feel which makes this guy so dangerous. He conceded just is built in the mental capacity to play quarterback. Was it right. But then his this office or whatever offense that comes along is going to be exciting to see how this mammogram afraid. He's going to batter. You're rushing records and he's on his way we'll be talking about it. Seems like you're okay with that. Yeah I mean like I said you had to go. I will be honest. I didn't think it will ever be broken. Well I didn't think long and play between the tight hatches and do the things things that I've done but it's just a pleasure. I'll say it again for me to watch and see another guy you know kind of just emily nest out and doing a better. Averaging seventy nine hide wealth per game but the idea of picturing him in the Green Room as everyone came before him. That's pretty powerful motivation for a long time. I put a ring on the screen. Colin Kaepernick's work was scheduled. To be at the Falcons facility on Saturday but thirty minutes before the workout was set to begin Cabernet announced he would be conducting his own workout at a local Atlanta area. High School instead Cabernet mornings agents said they changed the venue because of the unusual liability waiver the NFL asked to sign and because the League would not allow media to attend the workout Kapernick through for forty five minutes in front of reps from eight NFL teams and afterwards kept said he has been ready to play for the past three years and the ball is now the leafs court so Shannon from all of this what is your biggest takeaway. I'm disappointed but how can the situation. I think everybody knows what this show show for the last three years I've been WANNA cavs big supporters. You and I talked about this. I believe every single day for about three or four months when everybody else touched on it at the beginning inning in left the subject alone you and I talked about it. I talked to cal- I knew how much he wanted to get back into the league and even corn to turn coined a term as a cap has has been white ball that has not changed but the way he handled this situation skip now. He knew that he received only very short notice. He could have said you know my representative just giving me word that the NFL is set up a workout for me. I will get back to you as soon as I know more details. Does he jumped in head first. So you know this was going to be on Saturday. He turned around because what he did skip. He's his camp and his supporters says the NFL wants to control the narrative with the NFL. Says that you control the narrative and he walked into a trap they said because by him changing it is I see here depot. That's more trouble than what he's worth now. You had twenty five of their because let me tell you what happened and I will put it in terms that people can understand skill. Just say for the sake of argument. There's something going on. You don't really want to attend anyway okay. Thirty minutes before. Are you supposed to get there. You receive a moving to being you. What you think you're going to do? I'm glad thank you. And that's twenty five. That's what seventeen of the twenty by that were there. There's a good dry. It's over. An hour drive is in our flowery branch north North Way. Hey North Way north and this is way south and I know people say well. What if they came? They could've saw him play. Riverdale is like they report like fifteen twenty minutes away through true but they didn't want to be there to begin with so this was my thing is guilt if you wanted the media to be they're going to just get your workout you you see what cap is trying to do. If CAP is trying to appease audience that has no rolling getting a job you can showcase your talent for the immediate. All all you want to you can try to appease your fan base all you want to but they will play no role in getting a job. Count you show up to a job interview with a Kuntar Taser. You trying to antagonize I cab keeping it real cap going keep it real keep being unemployed. Yup Yep because the people and then he became as like belligerent like angry. NFL Thirty two owners. Roger Goodell stop running running scouse. Tell your bosses I really so you know what they say. This is the we good. I came here those that saw me solve the way that I can deal with all the football I can still play at a very very high level. All won't won't not if anybody that's going to watch this video. Hopefully the people that were in attendance they can go back and tell their people to bring me in for a closer look. I have no problem but but the defiantly say when you deal with men of wealth and power they do not like to be told what to do and when they normally and through my experience when you tell someone like that do this or else. They'll always choose ails. I thought they were very small chance. I thought it was like on Saturday that he could get get back. But this way plans poodle. I Don't feel that Colin Kaepernick plays another down and then a bill. Unfortunately I agree with every point you just made and I am sorry but I am done defending Colin Kaepernick on this show. I've heard from several people in and around the NFL. Who have fought for Colin? Get back in there done there so disappointed almost ashamed of of how it played out on Saturday and again I echo what you said for three years I have fought for him on the show and I still believe he had historical goal impact with his protests. Steve still believe the call was worthy. It was the the cause was it was worthy enough for him to risk his job and now what little chance he had of getting a job back he has lost. And it's pretty clear to me. The Colin no longer wants to play football. It's pretty clear that he's only interested in being a bigger and bigger martyr and that's okay with me but that's what that scream to me on Saturday is that he just wants people to feel sorrier in sorrier for him and again. There was Dan. Patrick report that Jay Z was behind find one team. You know pushing for Colin to get a like a combine style. Showcase right was it. Bogus was was it really was the. NFL's Dell's hard in it. I don't know we both were pretty leery of yes but still we both agreed okay. There's there's a slim chance that one representative will say man. Dan Looks Pretty Good. We ways handling himself. This is a new Colin Kaepernick. Maybe we should think about this in. There's also rampant reports this morning that Jay Z was very upset with the way Colin reacted in handled Saturday because the NFL first off cinem- couple of days before the standard standard waiver that everybody signs to go to the combat or any free agent workout on a Tuesday at any L. facility it's just standard boilerplate relate late sort of waiver. Okay just to protect the team on this case the NFL right now. They tore it up and sent back something that was outrageously unsigned label for the NFL. In then it got down to reportedly Colin and his agents wanted their own own film. Crew there in the NFL said okay. But then I read. That Nike was planning to do a commercial. Maybe they still will do a commercial featuring a letter that Colin Alan wrote when he was in fourth grade about I wanNA play in the NFL. Well this is another sympathy plane. It's fine but Nike has been reported that Nike's washed the NFL to retract Eh. Because they said they weren't shooting. Okay well they did but again they are saying that they were planning commercial right. I think that was a fat okay but they whether they were gonNA shoot route. They said we didn't have a crew. There Collins crews going to contribute to this. I don't know so then they move it to the other venue and one of the receivers I talked to was there said it was down. He counted seven Reps. Who made it from the twenty four? who were there originally up in our brains okay and then we get down to the t shirt shirt and again? We we all know about Kim and we know about routes but it's it's the wrong place wrong because you're just saying I'm still a social justice. Crusader I'm still fighting. And you know and I know that the these teams don't that this is what they don't want right now they're going to say we're we're not gonNA give our stage back to you if you're still wanting to fight for what you believe is right which no one has a pro. You do that. You do that on your own. But it's a job interview right and that's that's no that's not putting the foot forward that the NFL one. If if who let's just say Herbert or Joe Borough they have a workout. They open it up to the public but if it chooses to be private is private if if I was if I got released during the season he's not gonNA work out. I can't say what you know Y'all guys family but I wanNA feel myself. Also I can air but my. Here's my story to nutshell skill. If you distrust the in a bill so much why the hell you WANNA get back. I forget everything else wrong. You yes. Do I believe cabinet. It could've played three. Yes yes yes sure. Yes but at the end of the day you distrust him so much what are they cutting spicer. Made Me Look Eh. If you feel this way why do you still want to opportunity to be in bed with them. That's what I don't get it. Stop Cap Bra brought love you. I I believe the call which are not to take. I understand roofs. It was Alexander Autobiography about how he traced his past past passed and Kuta Kim Tae with was a family member cap. You're not that slave. Yes us and he went to this notion. Yeah you stop and you show up at a job. What job interview you going on? You're going to work a a Goldman Sachs and you're going to work from prominent law firm you go show up a pause studios and you assured that shirt and you you want a job. Though just what people at the Barbecue Catholic sell out. Camping fell out. I got get all their. But he's very playful. What what is the accounting hitting the job? Yeah War crawfish okay. You could have played it this way. You could've played it straight. You could've showed up and you could've balled out because I think he threw the ball and you could have said and done all the right things that needed to get settled and then the ball goes right back in the. NFL's right and it's like everybody's saying and and now there's Nah that's over when people ask me and say you're seventh round draft pick and you made an NFL and you when bolden go into the hall of fame. So what what I say. I went to work every day and I needed to give the I need to give the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens One reason to keep me An all cap. He could not give them a reason to say hell no go away and he gave him ten he did give a one reason what and Chow gave him numerous reasons what you see. I'm good I just don't skip if I don't trust you ain't got no we can't do business together the we can hang out. I'm good you good okay you cou. But if I don't trust trust is everything without that I don't care how much how great a woman looks. I don't care how much he has if I don't trust you can't be with you. That's interesting so what. What are we doing here cap? You don't trust the NFL. You so defiant in your staff with the NFL yet you could say no he's GonNa easily said no to the NFL they offer staging my own but you know what when he did that a couple years ago. How many people showed up watching throw bottom line? I still greatly appreciate an honor. All he did for that. 'cause yes he risked his job yes he lost his job. Yes in a frayed. It's GONNA stay loss. Yes all right possibly The under chapter here on the show the cowboys cowboys got back to their winning ways yesterday. Taking down the Lions thirty five to twenty seven Zeke Elliott was held to only forty five rushing yards but hauled in a receiving touchdown on and celebrated by doing his best Dak.. warm-up impression runes doing it led the way through the air with four hundred forty four yards three touchdowns the cowboys are now six and four with sole possession of first place in the NFC face now joined by hall of Famer NFL network analysts Ladainian Tomlinson good to have view with us yesterday going back and by the way when I greeted Ladainian this morning I said. Forgive me for this but I can't call lt because there's just one of those. Ah like a football God. What was your answer? I L T the original said call me baby. Yeah not worth clever to all right at least when you look at these cowboys in your opinion. How far can this team go well? That's that's a really good question. I do believe that they are the best team in. Thank you so now when we talk about not being the best team that means you're GonNa have a home home playoff game right so that means you're probably going to be playing in wildcard game against a team like Minnesota or maybe even dust. Did they edged red. But here's the thing you either Seattle or San Francisco. Oh probably would be other team that you will have to play at home now. I believe the cowboys can beat Minnesota and San Francisco Home Seattle to me. Seattle has a a lot of experience. There have been there and done that. They have the coaching experience. And the problem to me with the cowboys at times is Kelly. Moore's inexperienced shows up. We've seen it in passing. I do think as a team. They have all the talent to make a deep run. I just think when it comes down to it if you plan a team like Seattle Seattle that inexperience at times where you're not very creative at times office. That's GONNA come back to bite. You beat Seattle in a home playoff game last last year that that'd be MVP we're BP. Russia different cloudy now cloudy now on different a different football but I do believe this cowboy team can get past wildcard round division around when they probably will have to play a team like the saints you know and and the road which will raise a difficult task so I give them getting past wildcard round divisional round. Ooh that'd make me find out cases now I don't I still gotTA missing. The playoffs too inconsistent uh-huh because that Defense Gabe Jeff Driscoll twenty seven points. How about this? They got six wins. They got one win over team has got more than three wins. Interest you in that. Now when you're playing the player what you're not going anywhere. So get temporary down. I know I know you all excited been banging on the table fish. You'll be hurting banging the table and blue. XP Did your hope. You'll be like that. Skip if you look at the schedule is down the stretch. The schedule really favors. I mean eagles. Seattle Miami the giants Washington going to get you guys cowboys. That'd be that'd be the death blow right there and then get the giants again and you guys got New England Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Guideline love EP in Chicago. It's the rams the eagles coach. That's going to be the game right there because only one team coming Outta the NFC east from the West but the cowboys have only eagles lately the last three years we got him Hey poor disclaimers not is Dallas. You GotTa have a Joke Dallas. It's closer to our young. You love the cowboy. There's the play did you did okay. L. What football wanted to be a running back. That's all it wasn't about being a cowboy you you don't go to okay so just tell me about Ross. He's arrived he's he's according to you he's edging out right now. Lamar Jackie. I'm being connect guess. Who goes to Philly this coming Sunday? MVP Raw will be here. y'All get in the we'll get it. You didn't get Brady. So we'll we'll get lane Johnson back. We'll get lane Johnson back wing. It'd be p rooker cloudy Go have a field day so I'm going to confession once again my team. The The Dallas Cowboys is driving me out of my mind on a weekly basis years off the end of my life. My wife keeps yell at me. You gotta calm down. I I go berserk doing cowboy games because they make me Berserk. Howie long talked about it yesterday? On our Priego pre-game show on Fox. They're so talented. You just said that's talented. You go down just on paper Ross. Earn you say they just don't play up to her. I don't know why I don't know why not look. I think they need a new head coach. Just new voice up to it at some poor certain game in Italy in fits and starts during the game at seven out of ten in times. They've trailed immediately. They've fallen behind immediately and seven of their ten games. That's not a championship team and yet the quarterback is playing at a championship. I've been shipped level to me. He would be in this. MVP race if not for a couple of blown games at the end. The Minnesota game when they went. Zeke Zeke Zeke at the end of the game. I'm like what are you doing is it. Kellen Moore did Jason Garrett intervene and say run run it and then throw it Zeke. I don't know but something went wrong because the quarterback was on fire against Minnesota. And I'm with you. Could they beat Minnesota Plotkin. Yes they could. They almost beat him and and that Sunday night game. Campbell Kirk did yesterday Dow wisdom five awesome and then I saw kirk at the podium after the game sit somebody just texted me and said it took a special person to pull off that comeback. So he's telling the world world. Somebody texted him to say special person. Would you hire special kirk if somebody takes you a lot that why here. Why Game Tassels? So here's my bottom line to my team right now it's All quarterback or bust. I don't like any other phase of this football team. I don't know why Zeke just doesn't look right to me. He doesn't look like that guy who who used to lead this team and they can't run it or stop the run. They can't stop the pass and they don't take the ball away on defense they're tied for twentieth and Takeaway Dada Data. That's a recipe for disaster. Because an any given Sunday if the quarterback doesn't play a supremely high level. What do you think's GonNa happen or you don't care to Jeff Driscoll almost happened yesterday yesterday? It's thirty five to twenty seven and its second and ten at the thirteen with one. Fifty four left and I'm pacing man because if you don't convert this yes and you give Jeff Driscoll the ball back he just might convert on you. Go for two and beat you at Detroit. What and my quarterback makes another play to Shannon? Darwin Blake Jar Jar. One for a first down to kill the clock took that that's how close it was at Detroit so my team's hanging in at six and four. I agree with you. I still like my team better than I like the duck to play like this every day. Well we've been waiting to work because you can't expect to me. You can't expect Zeke to be able to run the football like you have have in the past. We haven't seen as quite honestly and we haven't seen office line play to the. Why aren't we seeing that Zeke? I love Zeke but I keep waiting for Ezekiel. You can honestly say this anytime. You have a young quarterback you've got a young offense coordinator. You'RE GONNA WANNA try to uplift their young quarterback to be in the VP race right. And so naturally you're not going to run the ball as much as you used to use all those whip. They have massive weapons at the wide receiver position. Gallup galaxy stepped up Randall. COBB I love their receiving core. I mean he's been hurt you off and on healthy he's via we then Yeah Ladainian so many times they give it to Zeke on first down and it goes for known or one and I'm like to predict a second nine nine for the second is hard then it gets two third and five and it gets hard. You now converted a lot of photo ball when I down all of that alien students say just get it over with face wash go ahead. I got the second night. Just they should just just cash shout the first down to just tell them to flip it over and say it's second okay. Because they do they do make that degree of difficulty. Because I mean he's been unbelievable but you can't make a living picking a third twelve thirty fourteen periods of leading the NFL in third down conversions. And it's mostly because he'll find somebody right. So Mile Fall in Zeke made a nice little snag screen pass. It was good. He can do that. He's got really good hands but then he turned and I saw a little a little bit bursts fronting but I never get to see anymore because there's nowhere to burst right. They need to get him in space a little bit more. You know that little round that they did with Tony. Paul scored on thank you. I've been I've been banging the table for them to do that. More was and this is going to be blasphemy. Probably to you but the stat of the night was Tony Pollard. Every game that he has gone twelve or more plays played twelve or more plays. They're six. Okay well I'm just saying that is cars so maybe you play both of them because they yesterday they play both of them together a couple of times. It was going hunting niche you. You know what's killed Baylor. They've been they've been six. Six big giants twice redskins Miami. The Eagles Eagles say it. Say it say it again say a Minnesota. What do you do the jets did? He played his today. I didn't I don't know ask coach Clap. Maybe that's a problem. Maybe it is the slow invation patriots. We're bridgewater who get back. The CY look here now. One thing glances the substitute with this. You making me to lay hands on me. y'All let the substitute teachers to real teacher. Lay the and they told me talk. Talk Talk Talk. J. They say with Shannon you need to go home and talk so I tried to talk my boy. Take that Mister School. So guess what out. I got a little granted. talkable ended up my grandma. Go killer. B i-it you've had this saved up. I appreciate it still talking a whole along with a win against the eagles. The Patriots advanced to nine and one in the season and they hold hold on to their lead in the AFC the Ravens kept pace though cruising to a forty one. Two seven victory against the Texans Baltimore remains right on the heels of New England with eight and to record Ladainian. Tomlinson is still with us so Ladainian when you look at the AFC Who Wins the Patriots? Are Ravens us. That's a good question I I you know for me right now. I think Baltimore is the better team because went on comparing defenses S.. I always start to compare these teams. I think they counsel each other guys bowed. Defense is very good to me right now. The Patriots are deficient at the wide receiver position in terms of speed. Like if you don't have speed the office no one respects you and against Baltimore Defense. I believe they can shut them down more than the Patriots. Baltimore Dan simply also because Baltimore's Baltimore's offense is something we haven't seen before it's just too difficult to stop it because we just haven't seen enough. Although did you guys see when the Patriots in Baltimore play during the game. Did you see what bill bill was doing the whole time. He was taking notes during a game for because he knows that when it comes to the playoffs they're going to see this team again Asia and so there might be some adjustments. Obviously that will be made guys. I'm not I'm not ready to Count Kansas City. Not yet just because of the way way they can score defense will start to come around and play a little bit bad. We've seen glimpses of that defense plan better so right now. In my opinion I think is Baltimore tomorrow in Kansas City teams sunny deceased from Kansas City to nine defense concern you. I don't really concern myself off the deep it leaves a lot. This is what is it. Three of their last four they have. I would take the ravens right now. Let's let me say. At the beginning of the season I would say skipping twenty nineteen. Tom Brady Lamar Jackson. Which one you think will have a better twenty nineteen face good? Where the better Caesar either? And at this point he played Tom. He has and give you the I think that's the big surprise because he's been unbelievable this year and is elevated their play. They're running the football. You gave the stat over two hundred yards rushing in team. You're not there just crushing. The Field San Francisco's next at one hundred forty forty nine again because what that does it keep if you got an explosive offense and keep them on the sideline that's where they come in and that's why they almost. They always always play Kansas City so tough because they limit the amount of position that they're going to have. Will Bill Limit. Tom Brady because I still believe the best way to beat. This team is the key Pittsburgh. His book the sideline because he can he can summon something occasionally he can. You just don't want it to be that occasion that you happen to be playing that. He summons that greatness that that we've seen for him for the last twenty years so I will take them. I like their defense. Jimmy Smith with the first round of modeled Humphry. Were the first round Earl Thomas. Marcus Peters all those. DB's leased. I ride a brand new car with a first round draft pick skip. They don't have the big name. Not that the ray. Lewis is the souls Ed Reed but Wing Markdale Don Don Markdale the defensive coordinator for the rave does a great job in the scheme. He's come from that'll again. Come from that Rex Ryan. They real exotic. They do a lot of different things. Give you a lot of different looked so right now you gotta play a perfect game. You don't beat them going to New England and coast especially if you don't play perfect you turn it over. You'd probably do you turn it over just once. You probably going to lose their game. You got to play flawless and catch them off just a little bit Ho. Tom Brady played like you what we've seen in play for the most the large chunk of the season. And you have an excellent chance to go in there and I must say that our man be. Lt here strong points. When you start with those defenses this is your right in harked back to a super bowl that I covered after the two thousand one season and I laughed at everybody all week? Who made any case that the New England patriots with this first year starter at quarterback had any chance against the Saint Louis Rams who were just dominated ratio or people out? What were they like? Sixteen point five mayors fourteen but it was. It was safe again. Yes and you know the rest story. It was bell checks defense and that kid Ed Brady. He did. He did okay down the stretch of that game that they let him throw the football and put vegetarian Forty nine yard field goal so I keep trying to talk myself into Lamar and company going to Foxborough and win a game. Just because they've they've arrived right before your very eyes. It's happening happenings and I'm so dug in on. Tom Brady that I still say he's not going to lose an AFC championship game at home. But this team does us have a legacy. It has history that the kids know that they feel rate left in the locker room. What you left in the locker room? What suggs left in the locker room? They they know there's a history there they've they've gone up there too. Should want all three games at Foxboro. Right you went to a playoff game at Fox born and it didn't turn out because his hard man and humor is cold with the jets. You beat him with the Oh you did. That's a very good point. Yeah at that Fox win three in in home playoff games so they don't they don't lose often because you got you have to play perfect because normally teams and the thing is they don't beat them sales they just. They'll they'll go along and knowing that there's a great chance that you're GonNa make that one mistake now fumble interception. They don't do anything so so. Why did the giants upset Tom? Brady and the first Eli Super Bowl. Because the last regular season game they played the hell out of they was thirty eight to thirty thirty five believe they lost but it was closed and nobody felt they could even touch that dream and then they go into the Super Bowl and they say you know what we could play. Wait and see. They didn't beat them. But it's like you know what we played them close. Nobody has ever gotten that close to him. And so now Lamar Margetts in that teams have hold on. We beat this team is bad thoughts crush dominate. Okay close Tom Brady in the playoffs when his clothes he finds a way to make that critical. Drive at the end of the game to beat you so you can't leave it close in the playoff right now. I just can't see the pieces on on offense. Isaiah wins coming back at left tackle and I do think that's GonNa make a big difference. But I thought Nikiel Harry the first round pick Arizona state because I watched him a lot in college. He's dynamics right. I didn't see dynamic yesterday. But he's kid be his leg back. You better some speedo high expectation. Would they be in that situation. Well Gronk Scott big quote unquote the announcement. Tomorrow I don't know is that I don't know I find it hard to believe. I hope I hope you that going back. I hope my gut tells me he will not announce he's looking pretty comfortable with our guys now. I'M NOT GONNA say he won't go Back Bay later date and time but it just won't be this right now. I'm is running out this year. This just give up. Sorry looking forward to count. It's great to have you. It was really nice to have you join. Thanks for being here. And how about this lebrons dropped to double performances over the weekend. He put up. twenty-nine points eleven assists and a thunderous dunk. That's on social media into a frenzy Enzi against the Kings on Friday. Then we've called me in attendance last night. The bronze went six for ten from Arche also had thirty three points. Thirteen assists an an easy win against the hawks. Oh Shannon how impressive was your guy. Lebron over the weekend you will. It'd be king. Oh I keep the non told people as I say you're foreign big man. Do not stand up on the rim. Lebron's coming down now that he got. Why did they have to be formed if something gets He called negative feedback. I don't I think that's because he called Sarah's leisure philly sorry didn't try to dodge him just going all the ride in the same they'd been the same then he call Lisa certain. Oh my goodness for now just imagine. Can you imagine the twenty nine here. Twenty nine eleven himself. No four rebounds on Friday perfect for the free throw line did he went to the free. Throw Line because you wrote this report. Lebron shy away from the free. Throw Line because you don't want to go to laugh has his whole career. We'll have him probably not. What do you do is mytalk last night? Thirty three twelve no turnover. I know a guy had ninety nine warrants. That that'll Gretzky novel third overnight said that Ain't GonNa get one for one six Attiyah Eh. La Broad is shooting twenty percent from the three point line. I heard you mention about three point lately. He been doing real good for no three left from the free free. Throw line helping nowhere with Kobe is coming what you saw. Just a little sample. I saw it just imagine if he wasn't washed athletic what he'd be doing my turn please. Why does Lebron choose to dunk over foreign big men? Maybe because they can't jump I don't know maybe because they're easy targets maybe because be alita. Can't block anybody shot at six feet ten inches talking we see got again. Lebron has the audacity doke over poor and then staring down yep is it. He's a really. He's a credible though. What does it matter what does I don't on Alita Lebron mortals you and he put it up on his instagram instagram? Eventually tag wash King Hashtag revenge season Lemesh via Lita staredown pizza. But are you proud of that. I wouldn't want the Russian ashamed if you watched leading. What difference does it make? You didn't You're not supposed to be which brings me to the last play of Friday night's game the last two minute report on that game said Lebron offense if fouled Harrison Barnes that he should not have gone to the good maybe. I congratulated him via twitter her. Because as I said it's about damn time that you made some late game close game free throws and he finally did albeit against the Sacramento. Ah I'll give you those two because it's been ages eons since he made one of two both to with it. Wow you know what I. But here's the thing. That's so puzzling. But it's really not pleasantly now. Last year with blocked his shot. You came here say shelling give it up over. He doing dirt. Cheap wouldn't put everybody really now all of a sudden why he wanted to be a Lisa like bang us. We'll pick on somebody your own side. I'm on the Taller. He won't be that way and steer him. I WanNa see that plays or beef out you remember you. Put me on no poster. Yeah we'll see when you were lowlights. Let's see let's just take one last. Look at Lebron low light viewer. Threw the ball to the backboard. He got his shot blocked. Roll the ball with Rudy with the WHO'd he go bare their blocked that will also then it was like Colby came to see me last. Night was Kobe. Cain to promote his children's fantasy book number one and Kobe's daughter who's going to be a superstar love bath. She loves TRAE Young. So how many visits to the Atlanta Hawks make to staples polls one so I think daughter said Daddy. Will you please take me tonight. So let's not overreact. To this Hobie blesses abroad. The revenge season tag coat first of all Kobe. Very busy main. Yeah we know how methodical maniacal he is. He has that same approach to basketball. He's now took that the film and storytelling. I agree so he doesn't really have time. 'cause I think Kobe the Newport to fly down okay get back. So here's my set is like I'm making movies. I'm writing children's but they deal because most of those guys on that roster. They looked up to Kobe and yeah because so he's still he's still royalty. Because here's a guy that came straight from high school. Lebron mentioned that Kobe did actually I can do it. So they're still get it. Yes it means something to have royalty. We know we get back together. WE COME IN DENVER. We WanNa do do things this. I promise you Kobe's mind. He thinks Lebron does not belong in his universe. Know if all the way you're right I told them we're we're entity unto I assail really. Yes who's he gonNA dunk on next. Yaacob pertile Ah you know we will get Stephen you would have to really. I do want to Nurlan oils to. And then we'll get him on again because we got a back really. Oh like somebody else. I know that don't play back. Did you have seen. I haven't seen a wine played back to back but then go play some games. Hashtag revenge season as Lebron and dunked on the elites. Lebron Airdrie Order Lebron. I can't believe I can't believe you joan. My hair believe you did a lot of Maine. There's two sixty alita. No Lebron the ten. He's not be like lebrons about sixteen. Stay down and tried to take charge. Okay I'm glad I bet you're happy about where to go. I got a little PAMMY ATLANTA. It's over and they want to do anything in Alabama was up thirty five to seven with three minutes left in the second quarter when to a tunnel by Loa was tackled from behind dislocated his hip to a is undergoing surgery. Today and we'll miss the remainder of the season and Nick Sabin said that they were warming up their backup. QB But wanted to get to wraps with two hundred offense before pulling him from the game so Shannon should Savin have taken to out of the game sooner. I believe so. Skipping that know hindsight's magnificent sizing is in coach coach. Sabin had he known obviously he would have taken them out. which you have the guy warming up? You can run two minutes next week against Western Carolina. 'cause I think some more lower-tier to your team that you're going to be playing against Gill is just plus. He was already banged up. I'm not so sure I would have played in any way because he was a game time decision to even play. And it's just thirty five seven I just I bet you coach Belichick says you know what seems like okay. We decided at the last minute to minute. He's as I probably should have went with my first instinct. I'm burs good with our bet. You'd with your decision. Shannon Sharpe just criticized. Nick Save Time in the history of that yes it was I. I do not blame nick. Sabin for what happened because it wasn't even halftime yet. This was a an incredibly freakish injury and I still can't understand how it happen. Keep watching the video saying how did that come from that. It just as easily could have happened in the opening series against Western Carolina. Because you know what I hate to say this but to is proving extremely brittle like he is extremely injury prone Tom I look at something else going on which will not help him at the next level. There's definitely things because the hip situation because you could get away with. They never really straighten him out so so you could tell that something was wrong. When he said him on the car decided now thanks for listening to the undisputed podcast? I'm Johnny Taft. Join US again at the same time tomorrow Mar Morning Nine Thirty Eastern C. Span of of one.
