"He likes offense he had like the highest. I think that Capitol steam ended up a couple years ago being one of the high scoring teams ever. When he didn't. Maybe that was like era, Justin, I was reading. When does Sean McVeigh's contract run out? You think you take a run at hockey? I would want to take him on if he if he did he didn't He sound like a million your country. Why am I looking this up? What am I doing? Um, but we're gonna transition to football here. It's a good segue way. Actually. Sean. Perfect side. The NFL Okay, so quickly on both of these guys we're gonna hear from Jeff Skinner after the break. By the way, in case you missed his interview from earlier. I'll bring that everybody next. We got a report yesterday on Russell Wilson. Let's start there before we get to Shawn Watson. We had in the morning, a different list of teams and we had in the afternoon for Just the sake of pedigree. I think I'm going to side with Adam Schefter is list. Also, It's more recent than the Athletics list, which involved the Jets and the Dolphins. I also don't want the Jets in the Dolphins involved. So I like shutters looks better with New Orleans and Chicago and Las Vegas, which was the only common team between Toke both reports. And who am I missing here? Missing somebody. For Wilson, Chicago, New Orleans. I don't owe Dallas, right? Yeah. What do we think of the idea? Of him on the Cowboys. And a Prescott for Wilson swap. I think it kind of makes sense. Wilson gets Much improved offensive line. They're not quite the group they were a couple years ago, but they're still a very strong unit. They've got weapons like he. It's not like he's losing DK Metcalf in Tyler Lockett, but he's getting Omari Cooper, Michael Gallop and CD Lamb with Ezekiel Elliott coming out of the backfield, too. Good offensive line. Defense kind of stinks, but he's getting He's getting a good landing spot. And he's obviously okay with it. And if I'm really very similar teams, Yeah, and if I'm Prescott Now what you would need in this equation. Is Seattle being willing to give Prescott the contract? He wants a two or three year deal. But if I'm Seattle and Russell Wilson wants out Like, Yeah, give that Prescott a three year contract cause I'm not doing better than death. Prescott. If I'm trading Russell Wilson and I could still try to win right now. If he's my quarterback, I think that swap Makes sense for almost all parties is long as Seattle would like the idea of a short term contract for deck. What does dead cap look like for Wilson if he gets traded $39 million, So that's that's tough, especially if you're if you're a team that wants to compete right now. It is, um I'll bring up the cat page again. Because I think Seattle had a decent amount of cash space by God double check on that while I'm doing that, then today to Shawn Watson. One report, certainly from the team, and one report, certainly from the player wrap report says that the Texans don't feel any urgency they don't see the start of for agency or the draft is a deadline, essentially meaning they're fine taking this into the season. Because, especially by the draft. If you were going to trade to Shawn Watson, if you knew you were going to do it, you would get that done before the draft in order to get one of those topics. Likely ideally from the Miami Dolphins and three Whereas if you go past the draft a guard I'm signing up for picks next year. What? I don't know where they are, and then we find out from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. That Watson is good is completely okay taking this into the regular season and that he does not care about the potential for three plus million dollars in fines on top of him, not getting his money in the first place. He doesn't care. Situation is too far gone. It's out, Fowler said it so Something could change. The only thing I could change is Houston starts taking calls, I guess, but I truly believe That he'll be on the roster at the start of the season, and he will not be playing. Isn't that the best case scenario? If you are a fan of a contender? In the best case scenario is that Shawn Watson is a Texan, and they're still at a stalemate. I think that's 100% the best because you know what's gonna happen. The Jets are gonna have to get their guy, which means they would no longer be in the running for any sort of crazy quarterback trade. The Dolphins will have made a decision on quarterback and at this point to me, it's either Watson or two up in Miami. Don't think another avenue makes any sense. It's either you trade for Watson. And you say to yourselves, all right, well, you know You. Uh, you can't can't do it. We're presented with a great opportunity. We've got to go with the guy who's proven and you most certainly are not. Or it's too. Uh, Like no other option makes sense to me. Yeah. Um By the way, real quick on that Wilson thing or for Seattle. Seattle has $12 million of cap space so they'd have to do some things no doubt. Also Wilson's dead cap number It's $39 million. If they trade him, But if they made it a post June 1st trade, it would only be $13 million. Wow. And then it would be 26, though next year, but they would have a lot of subspace. Here's the thing with that June. 1st is after the draft. So what do you do Have a handshake deal with someone in place? You could that even happen? You could do that, And that's a major risk because no one recognizes a handshake deal. Maybe here they would. That happened a couple years ago. It's got it's got a belt. That's tough, though. That's a tough is situation because you're telling a team to forego like say that, say, the Jets. I know they're not on the or the Revised version of the list that Schefter posted out, but say the Jets there was mutual interest between Wilson and Watson. What is the jet to D O Do they do it, too? It's a good question. I don't know if I haven't answered. Like as part of this handshake deal do does Seattle say this is who we want you to take it to? I guess..

"They managed the game. Well but russell wilson has proven over the last six years that he can do that can now i. I'll give you the if you wanna say the super bowl giving their winning. And then getting there. The second year russ was more of a game manager. I la dak prescott. I'll give you that. But the last six years russia has carry that team. The legion of boom has gone poof. They're out of their marshawn. Lynch is gone. He's doing commercials for some way and yet and still russell. Wilson carries that team year in year. Out to double figure winds and a spot in the play offs. All right that prescott win decade is most success winning. He was a game. He was the gay manager and zeke. Was the bell cow the last few years when they come flipped it not quite the same so now we go to go. We're going to be dak centric. They'd be losing games. They were eight and eight last year. We know what happened this year even though he got hurt before he got hurt. They were winning. When he average those three hundred seventy one yards a game. Greg a lot of that you know this came when the dallas cowboys were down big. The opponent went to a prevent defense and dallas had no choice but to throw the footba. They scored thirty points in the second half against atlanta in that great come back but they weren't a prevent and then they scored in the fourth quarter. Gives cleveland cleveland allston avenue. So i'm just saying greg. so yes. And here's the kicker go hog up the show. Here's the kicker russell. Wilson will be cheaper as the capital for the next three years for russel nineteen million nine hundred million twenty two million and i gotta pray. God is not as good as him. Thirty eight to forty million a year. Go can't russ go. Get russ greg real quick before lavar arrington goes. I see the steam coming out of his ears across here on the set. Greg i just want to point out like in. This is not dax slander. But after his rookie year right you had a good rookie. Year took the league by storm. Everybody was surprised. Debt prescott against teams that ended with a winning record was six and twenty thirty. Three touchdowns twenty-eight picks he has not delivered. I know you like him a lot but please do not put him anywhere near. He's not even the galaxy. He can't see the galaxy that russell wilson is in lavar. Take it away well from jerry jones. I'm just getting on my cell phone. And i'm hitting up russes agent and i'm like Won't you be mine. won't you be mine. won't you be my neighbor. she flees please. won't you beat. that's what you made me think about Jean j. Because i love card again and and and the nice to roger. Roger is that you got going on there. I would certainly want russell wilson to be my neighbor in dallas fort worth texas or wherever it is they reside. I could care less because dallas fan but this is a great opportunity for the dallas cowboys to say you know what we continue to say every single year that we are super bowl ready. This is super bowl or bus season. You cannot say that with a straight face and mane it currently the way that it is. And i'll go even further to say if i'm jerry jones. I'm sitting there. And i'm like the football god's lower case g have answered my prayers. You made a quarterback better than the one that i hat has put it out there in the public forum for consumption that he would love to come to my team. And oh by the way. What kurtz broussard's save rigs so true. he's cheaper. he's much cheaper. I don't have to the franchise tag. Just russ hey you know. What if they're willing to take that prescott for the money. He's trying to get and let them figure that out take zinc yo elliott to take zinc. Let's make it work. Sing them to seattle. Bring me russell wilson. Let me put him. Hey polar i'm okay with that we get through with that right now. We can we see on outside. We got we got a mario on the outside. We got gallup on outside. Now all i gotta do is try to address to make sure that my deepens is what it needs to be an now. I'm selling tickets selling hope. And i'm selling reasoning. I actually can make sanchez jerry. Jones saying that were super bowl. Bound by adding russell wilson. This is a great idea. Although i don't think it works i can make sense in the reason. Why doesn't work is because there's not that guy is true that easy they would have already made the deal but what seattle is going to require is going to make dallas paul's for the 'cause like simply put yet russ's cheaper if you're just saying oh. Yeah let's just train up and up russell that it ain't happening. No we need more than that. Ezekiel elliott balances out. What what seattle was looking at is so much more. They're looking like okay. We're going to ever consider this. We're gonna have to pretty much your house. You just see through same player greg. It said that they're the same player. They're not the same player but for seattle sake. That's what they want out of that. That's what they want out of. Grass is that can just manage the game and just be that guy. So what you're saying is is that prescott deserves the money that he should get from dallas. But he's not worth the trade for us so his value is here with dallas. But it's nowhere near there which seattle that's what you're basically insinuating right now if that's the case that's the case. Look i'm crusaded more in this house than i am outside. Well that's fair to believe that. I mean maybe that's great. You're willing to pay dax thirty eight million dollars to be a game manager. Why wouldn't you just go out and get jameis. Winston dan the ball off. He's not he's not a game manager though. We wanna put him in that situation. Because that's what he was when he first started. It's the same as not a big game with either. He hasn't had the opportunity. The that's the issue. His teams has not been as good as a team that russell wilson has hey behind you no they have not god come on now. Look at look in doubt yes..

"Wilson with who guys just said cd lamb. Gosh amaury amari cooper gallup. Nobody throws a better depot. They got they got a loan suits. What six-foot-seven tight in this would help their offensive line greatly. Because i don't think there's often align that they once were when we were calling this perennial all pro super bowl caliber offensive line. There banged up. They've aged a little bit. They've been figured out somewhat. People aren't intimidated by them. They're not slamming guys around like like they once work so when you look at what they bring to the table and you have someone like russell wilson who brings that accountability and raises that standard. Like you saw. Tom brady do and tampa bay. I think that that would be just as big if not bigger. It's probably a bigger coup than what you saw. Take place with. Tom brady tampa bay last. Offseason ooh i. I won't go that far. I like that lavar. I will go that far. Obviously brady led to a super bowl right away in the first year. But you are right in. That he changed is the attitude the atmosphere of that team immediately. Obviously he'd be the best. Cowboys quarterback troy aikman and troy. Aikman obviously was the last guy to lead them to a super bowl. So here's what people don't understand. J mack said they'd be super bowl contenders. A lot of people might be looking at that thinking j. max crazy but this is the impact. Russell wilson has peak a good coach. He was great in college. Obviously he hadn't done a lot in the nfl without russell wilson. He's six seasons in the nfl with three different teams. The jets the patriots. And the seahawks without russell wilson and in those six years he's had two winning seasons are in the in the eighth or ninth with russ. They've won double digit games. Eight of those years and made the playoffs eight times. Russell wilson changes thing similarly to tom brady just his his leadership. The way he galvanizes men in the locker room and they follow him when he went to seattle. You know and i get it. I said the legion of boom was huge but came chance. Don't do it earl town don't you do it you know. Let me say okay. Just let me say marshawn lynch. All i'm saying is they were there. The year before with seattle was seventy nine. Were now they were young. So i'm not holding against them but i'm just saying they were there. It was when russ got there. And i know there was even between the defense and offense and russ and all that but still. The dude is a winner. They had four straight losing seasons the year before he got there two of them under pete carroll russ gets there and they go eleven and five next year they win the super bowl next year in the super bowl so this guy has major impact talk about it. All the time intangibles. He got him and as jay maxine he also does a wicked deep ball. He's scrambles he makes plays with his legs. This is a no brainer now. I don't know if seattle would take zeke. Whoa i hear you. They like to run the football. But obviously zeke doesn't look like z. Right i should have a relatively young. But would they take nest cars to kabul the to seattle. Running backs are free agents. I know nothing special. But clearly pete carroll's theme was we want to run the football. He pulled the ball out of his hands in second half of the season after a couple of turnover games against buffalo and the rams but the thing about dak prescott. If i'm seattle i look around. Decay metcalf twenty three years old. Jamal adams twenty-five it seals lavar like this team is almost starting over like the legion of boom has gone that defense has had a lot of turnover. Bobby wagner is now thirty. K j right is probably going to be lost in free agency. They're starting over. There left tackles thirty six. I don't expend the big big money on dak prescott. I would rather have zeke. Is the running back. Then you've got decay and you could draft a quarterback with the dallas picket ten. Or maybe you've got to someone a little marcus mariota in free agency. If you will jameis winston may hit the market. You can have him. Hand the ball off now throw interceptions. There are options and that would leave deck with like. I don't know a denver. He'll have options but focusing on dallas. Chris you know this as well as anybody stars are great for the league. They're great for the tv networks. They're great for tv shows. Lavar arrington will spend every single day on television talking about russell wilson and jerry jones and jerry is a gambler. Okay i consider myself a little bit of a gambler. I do stuff on gambling for fox sports. I've always been an underdog right. I'm willing to take chances jerry. Jones became a billionaire. Look at his history by taking chances. I say you want the three three picks take him. Take zeke elliott. Give me russell wilson lavar. This has got to be the move for jerry. Jones is his chance. I'm going to revisit. Not wanting to pay that big price for deck bringing him into to the seattle seahawks team. Think of it this way. You have a ton of leverage as the seahawks as well if they're going to offer the franchise tag and that's that's foreseeably the only thing that they're willing to offer dak prescott from what i'm hearing on on reports if you're offering that and that's the number you have to absorb to take on dak prescott to unload russell wilson but you get a zeki elliott. I don't know how the numbers work. I'm not a cap polished. So for all you cap nerds out there that wanna holler at me and say i don't know what i'm talking about. I don't i don't have the numbers numbers just off the top of my head just thinking about what this could look like. There's nothing better that peak karaoke ado and losing russell wilson as we've discussed on niche show before then replace that man with another person that you can sell tickets and sell with now you're able to parlay that and get zeki. Oh elliott someway. Somehow you're able to figure this out in a tray where you can get ezekiel elliott and you can get dak prescott all in the same clip. I do that. I do that. And the reason. Why do it if you recall buffalo had marshawn in buffalo was okay with marshawn. Get away all right. So they're taking chances on guys that were talented guys. That didn't necessarily work out the way that it was supposed to work out where they were at previously so to take a flyer and take excuse me take take zeki will elliott and bring him and he knows the history of what that running backs position represents in seattle and it's more current than emmett smith reputation. The ghost of emmett smith running around and dallas. So when you think about the relevance of what what zeki could do an resurrecting his career and a new place. What better place to go and be the type of runner that ezekiel elliott is then go to seattle. What better place dak prescott to go then to go to a place where you watch russell wilson who i would assume if dak prescott is measuring himself up against russell wilson. He's probably doing. What russell wilson when he was measuring herself up to tom brady right at that super bowl. Like i'm measured by measurable is are are better than russell wilson. I'm bigger stronger faster on younger. I had more to offer. So if i go to a place like this where i clearly see some stability and they believe in buying there is like they did and russell wilson and i got decay beck care. I got tyler lockett. Come on man. And bringing zeke whitney.

"This yesterday. I thought it was overblown. But now with this new information it's not overblown. I russell was a his agent. Can say he hasn't asked for trade or demanded a trade but he has now. He's he's put look you guys in high school. Did you ever date a girl who said she didn't want to break up but she wants to date other people. That's what russell wilson is saying. I don't wanna trae but if you're gonna trade me teams. Yeah i mean he is yes he now that you've put it out there that you've got your own these four two teams now. It's a problem in seattle now from dallas respective goslett. I've always been a dak prescott fan. I'm big on intangibles for quarterbacks. And i think that has the intangibles in space But that said i would go after russell. Now if i'm the dallas cowboys number one he's cheaper okay. You can his cat number for the next three years. Nineteen million nineteen million twenty. Two million obviously dak prescott. You're gonna be paying somewhere between thirty seven and forty million dollars when he will. He will want to renegotiate that though. Well but he's still got several years left. I mean it wasn't a cab. Huge variety against the cat hits for the cowboys. True those would be the cap hit so just on their cap. That's all i'm saying. Yeah so as much. As i've liked that i've never been under the impression that he's a top five quarterback or may ever be a top five quarterback. I think he's a quarterback you can win super bowls with. But he's not a top five got russell. Wilson is a top five. Got and what we know about that for sure. I've caught him a game manager. Who can make place a playmaking game manager so he manages the game but unlike most game managers he will make the big plays sometimes with his legs or even with his arm and when he had his most success in the league when he was winning. All these games were leading the cowboys to the playoffs. Two of his first three years he was a manager the last two years. They've tried to put it on him and make him the guy. Zeke is declined a little bit so now it's about deck and they haven't been able to win at the same clip even last year when he averaged three hundred seventy one yards passing game. Let's be honest. A lot of those yards came in the second half when the other teams have big leads they were in prevent and dallas was playing desperately to win the game. They scored thirty points in the second. Half against atlanta. They scored twenty four points in the fourth quarter against cleveland. So they were down big. And that's where a big chunks of those yards came from so i'm not as much as i like that. I'm not convinced. He can carry my team if i don't have awesome pieces around him with. Russ we watch wealth guys for the last six years. Carry the seattle seahawks to relevance to the playoffs. Eight of his nine seasons. I get it the super bowl championships or the when they got there one. The first one lost a second when he was largely a managed. That defense was awesome. You have marshawn lynch. I get all that. However since then he's proven even if i don't have the great pieces around me we're gonna win. We might not win the super bowl but we are going to win and dallas actually has good pieces especially on the offense inside so you put russell in there now. You really talking about a team that can do something in the postseason. So yes if. I'm the cowboys back. Let's send you to seattle and was by. Don't buy that being widely by a guy. I'm a little surprised. Gernot more like pound the table. Go get russell wilson. I mean jerry jones. Are you kidding me. This is a division for the taking if russell wilson is your quarterback he instantly makes you the team to beat in the nfc. I don't know there's any decision at all here. I say jerry jones pick up the phone. I say hey seattle you want our number one pick this year you want our number two you want our number one in two thousand twenty two and this is where i really sweeten the deal guys. I was breaking down the free agent options. Seattle has said everything and pete carroll's dna. We want to run the football. We want to run the football. Yes lavar twice as zeke elliott. A good run. But i'm going to put you in that package. Zeke elliott to number ones too. I bring in rusk. And that's the thing. I don't take i don't wanna make it sound like on the antibac- but if i am seattle a my really taking on a quarterback that i'm going to have to pay more for. He's got a command more than russell. Wilson 'cause it feels like guys this russell wilson's stuff. There were a lot of bread crumbs leading up to it. And then it's like you open the door and it's like oh my gosh. He's through his entire offensive line under the bus. Now lavar no. You've been locker room guy a leader. You can't throw an entire offense under the bus in the off season and expect to show up at camp all hunky dory. It kind of feels like it's over for us in seattle and i'm telling you this slam dunk in dallas russ the offensive line healthier. You keep amari you keep gala cd lamb. Roof folks russell. Wilson will cover up a lot of those ugly warts that dak prescott could not in chris again not to pile on deck. You've been saying how he's won. So many games i had the stats team. Your pull it up. Last four seasons dak prescott six and twenty against teams that finished with a winning record for whatever reason he did not show up great in the against the elite teams for again. I'm not crushing jack. I know the defense was good and we can talk about. The special teams was inferior. And the coaching was blah blah blah. But russell wilson is a massive upgrade over dak prescott and lavar. You know this division. Well this nfc east russ instantly makes them a ten eleven team. And i think you're talking back to chris. Bussard this being a super bowl contender with russell. Wilson you wanna talk about selling hope i mean. I don't know what the rules are going to be what the provisions are for cove. And you know. Attendance day started doing attendance this season. So they were like forget this. We'll put some people in the stands. So so ming. It's going to be much more relaxed. Going into next season probably has to be more relaxed and what better than to come out of a cova year where we had to have so many restrictions on fans coming to our stadium and advertisers pooling. At dollars back saying that this is more important and this is more important than you say. No this is important. We have russell wilson and the big day. My let me tell you something. Amount of buying for russell wilson joining america's team and i gotta tell you jay mac liked that what you just said it would ezekiel elliott. I don't know that ezekiel elliott will ever be the guy he's once was when he was getting that contract getting to that large contract in dallas he might go somewhere else and that's sting that burn that he might really come back. It might not just be a tattoo on his belly. Thug live eat. You know what i mean. It might not just be that it really might be. It's time to eat so you go somewhere like like seattle so this might work out for ezekiel elliott. If they're thinking right this might work out for dak prescott. If they're thinking about this right you know why because that is the type of team that will be an amazing landing place for dak prescott. An-and ezekiel elliott. But russell.

"I'm surprised and then call him a family man. 'cause i don't understand i don't understand what being a good do has to do. You plan football. I just don't get it. Let's give dan a little bit of support here. Here comes the calvary pulling up from what in many cases cowboy territory in the state of new mexico. They love the cowboys in new mexico. Josh's in new mexico. You're on espn radio. What do you got anything you guys allowing me be on the show I appreciate you guys. You say you know a great listener warnings would say is you know i kinda. I definitely agree. Then i feel You know in this sport you gotta understand it. There's there's a cat. And where. I wouldn't. I respect what you would say you know. Don't want to mess with you. Know another man's money but when it affects the rest of the team and how you know their money and be spread around your. We're talking about team. That has a struggling decent. You know and you gotta make sure you don't want to end up in a situation where money starting to affect other other place since you know. He has point of not having success with came around. I agree with you as far as where he is compared to russell. Wilson's not far off. But russell wilson have had at times really good teams around him and he's been able to get to the super bowl deck has had some good players around him and was able to get mostly. Maybe the first round of the playoffs you do. You do realize they lost the entire offense alliance. Somebody retired on you. Do realize ezekiel elliott was having some running some fumbling issues. He held out a little bit. You do realize the head coach and jason garrett wasn't doing great they got mike mccarthy dot prescott on top of that when you start to fall into this notion of you. Can't you spend the money on a quarterback in and you can't get other players would a los angeles rams spent a lot of money on jared. Goff seems to me that they continue to keep paying players. I wonder how they continue to do that. Where there's an donal whether it's it's it's jalen ramsey robert woods cooper kupp jared goff whitworth the that left tackle. I don't understand how they keep doing it. If money's an issue at the quarterback spot all the time i get so sick and tired of people using that as an excuse. Don't pay the quarterback. Well i guess. Buffalo shouldn't pay josh allen. 'cause they gotta pay stefan digs at some point again and they're going to have to pay some other players at some point again right. I mean they shouldn't maybe. The browns shouldn't pay baker mayfield because the other players you forgot about. How bad their defense was this past year. I mean the reason why. Mike nolan got fire right. I mean defense was dreadful. Give it up. A ton of points per game was this was. This was that players. Mike nolan had coached in one hundred years man. So what is it. It's funny when people start to say don't pay somebody but it's okay to pay carson wentz or okay to pay josh allen but it's not okay to pay dak prescott i just i i. I'm gonna drop the beat. Drop the keys keys to love with. The green is what are we. What are we doing this weekend friday. I'm tired of talking about. We leave up for the weekend. If i had green is i'd be dangerous man. I don't have green or blue eyes but had green is. Oh it's just got to figure out if i'm messing around with a pizza to sit and watch tom and jerry tom and jerry. I liked it because it's a. It's a kid family a dope movie. I mean it's you know. It's going to be hearing you talk to about tom and jerry to the beat. That was that was one of my best. That was one of my best television shows that i used to watch the key dinner tonight. Chad allow a rat to do that to win. Or you got pretender tonight. Zubin what are we ordering.

Maybe i should have more faith in the buckeyes though having only seen them six times having only seen them play A couple big games. Nobody could have seen that coming. Nobody could have six touchdowns from dustin fields in snaps dominant performance. I think the thing i most underestimated was just how much fuel they were playing with from the For at the very least from last year's game that they've been holding onto this for twelve months Davos ballot played a role. Who's to say but clearly it was one of those situations where a team just comes out on fire. I hesitate to go down this road With you. But i'm gonna go there. Look you know what justin field pretty fantastic for the first three games of the season against lesser competition. And then he had that three. Pick game against indiana. Who's a good team was probably the best team. They played all season and then they played in the big ten championship game. They played a really good defense at northwestern and he looked like he lost confidence. I i don't know that but he just there was no chris. Alaba ver- and trae sermon ran the ball. Like he'd never run before and looked great. And but the passing game was left a lot to be desired to the point where A lotta people were saying. Hey wilson's now the the number two pick quarterback guy in the draft behind trevor lawrence. Now you fast forward. After this. And i'm talking to different people in football circles. Who our coaches. And they're like i would just discussions going to be really interesting now. What the jaguars may have between trevor lawrence and just field so just like justin feels was phenomenal tonight especially after taking a big shot. In the ribs from james galaxy that ended up being targeting and scou- scott ejected from another playoff game. Just like he did last year against shoe. But i mean these were some deep shots that he was throwing down field. I just thought well how they look terrific on really on both sides of the ball. I think they looked better than they had on. Defense a- this year given the competition but the one eighty on justin field from where he was where people felt about him after the northwestern game. I mean am. I understanding that am i stating that. I mean you. See the same thing i'm seeing. A lot of people were panicking about him. After the northwestern game in will i would say with the three interceptions against indiana and then the way he looked against northwestern. But how much do you think is with a higher state for you know. Not only they not played as many games so they haven't had As much time to figure their team out like trae sermon wasn't even factor until the last game and now he's he's had two huge games back to back. But then got chris alavi back. He missed the title game I mean they've had dating back and keep track of which week it was when they had their covert outbreak but and they had to cancel a game. But i mean they've had guys obviously going in and out of The twenty one day quarantine. That is now what seventeen days Like the day was out at one point like they may just be a case of. They finally got their whole team together at once. And they actually didn't those there were without three starters You know harry. Miller is one of their better offense of lineman. There were without a couple of defensive. Lineman they were allowed master teague forgotten man. Because that's not fair to him. But the way trae sermon trish. All of a sudden turned into the same same version that we saw ezekiel. Oh here by. The ezekiel elliott. Who was not even like in all conference honorable mention or second team all conference to the big ten year. They win the title because he just went wild in the three postseason games. And and now we're seeing trae sermon. Do that transform. It looks like they got. Adrian peterson to transfer from oklahoma compared to like elevated his game to ridiculous proportions. The i will say this. I feel like of the two of us. And i'm not trying to pop on the back here I feel like of the two of us. I was a little more of a believer in having a little more believer in justin feels. Maybe than you were at least as a passer. And i think some of that honestly stems from hearing all the elite eleven guys. And seeing him there where they raved about him in ways to a degree that they said. He's probably the most talented player they've had come through their Or quarterback and he looked like that god and i mean. This was the had some great performances. Obviously the numbers. You put up last year and at times this year. But i mean on that stage. The one thing that jumped out at me and you are both at the national title game in that stadium. A year ago was when it was head to head because trevor lawrence look fantastic when he shredded alabama as a true freshman. And that's when the hype. I would say that's when all of a sudden everybody fell in love with trevor lawrence and he is gonna be the first pick in the draft and a couple of years from now and he's done nothing to undermine that he's been terrific off the field. He's been terrific on the field. But joe burrow really was like outshine them last year in that head to head and certainly You know with justin feels it today just kind of was it was an amazing
Cowboys vs. Eagles score: Michael Gallup leads aerial assault against Philadelphia, keeps Dallas alive in NFC East
"Dallas cowboys ended the philadelphia eagles season on sunday afternoon at. At and t. stadium. That's right the eagles now with only four wins with only one game left even though the cowboys will need some help from them. The philadelphia eagles are officially done. And we'll have to look forward to two thousand and twenty one when their quarterback will be jalen hurts full-time or carson wentz. Who knows there's a lot to get into as it as it relates to this game again so many things happen. Let's start the first highlight to show you here. If you're watching on youtube sean. Jackson did indeed have an eighty one yard touchdown. Jalen hurts finds him about six minutes left in the first quarter. Just absolutely rose. We had absolutely chance. This is the type of thing that we've grown accustomed to seeing. Unfortunately from sean jackson he has gotten the better end of the cowboys for a long time over a decade. Schon jackson has been shown the cowboys now with multiple quarterbacks in multiple home stadiums schon jackson has had success. I'll give it to him that. At least this time. He remembered to score the touchdown and not fumbled the ball right in front of the goal line. Let's keep on. Let's get to some more happy. Highlights and michael gallup who was in contention for our star of the game. His first touchdown was a beauty as the second quarter. Began getting the cowboys. Back in the mix narrowing the margin. Fourteen to ten michael gallup like i said look at that elite camera work from fox. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael gallup quickly got to work. He had a big gain a little bit after a few minutes later. Look at this starting his own thirty five running down the sideline a bunch of eagles chasing him. Michael gallup doing all the work doing all the work doing all the work and then speaking of work you know the cowboys as we all know they like to feed ezekiel elliott. This was later on that possession the cowboys trailing fourteen. Ten and ezekiel elliott. There's no video of this so apologies. If you're watching on youtube you can see our freeze frame image. A looked like ezekiel elliott. Who had a really great game really looked like he scored on. This place is a bad angles from the tv copy but to me to my naked eye it looks like zeke. Elliott is over the line. I think that that's a touchdown. Zeke mike mccarthy did not challenge this. The cowboys wound up settling for fuel narrowing the margin fourteen to thirteen. They would ultimately start their climb back and they're ferocious. Climb back in fact. Let's get to that. Climb another michael gallup touched down here at the end of the first half andy dalton not even messing around just looking right for him and michael gallup again just a superstar a true wide receiver. One cowbys have three of them. Dalton schultz you can see very happy for his teammate. This was a phenomenal performance by michael gap
"ezekiel elliott" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"No gain three three three four six to like. I'd rather have that. I'd rather have. I would rather have what tony pollard can give. Then what ezekiel elliott can give. And that's my big thing. Is that would people. I if ezekiel elliott's name. Was you know john. Smith and this is the first you had seen from him. Are people arguing about him as the best player on the team or people looking at the traits. They've seen and things like that and going like. Yeah that's the dude. Like teams game plan for that even if he even wasn't kill it if they would have replaced the with a rookie running back named john smith in two thousand eighteen. And you just got the production. He's giving you or even seventeen the production he's giving from seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty. Are you talking about him. Like he's the best back in the league. There's a ton of obsession and holding on to things from four five ago and you've got to look at what he is now not what he was when he broke. Sixty yard runs against the lions and the bengals off right. Yeah and i think might you know you mentioned what treats you want running back in two thousand and twenty and you mentioned explosiveness. I think explosiveness. The ability to break tackles and catching the football. Like if you can do those three things you can be a starting running back in today's nfl. I don't you know. I was talking to some people on twitter the other day and you know a lot of people were like well. He reads the reads and reads keys. So well you know. He performs well in the the running game that the cowboys want to have. And i'm like cool like which you said though like if that only results in three and four yard carries almost every time than i want the guy who averages a half to a yard bus per carry but is going to almost always break off that twenty five to forty yarder in coal is saying you know where your you start hearing people bring up the wolf. You take that play out. He only averaged such and such. You can't do that with tony pollard. Because he does it on a consistent basis when he gets the ability to carry the football he almost always has at least one explosive. Run in those in those games where he sees a decent chunk of workload and he's not gonna do the in a four or five carry game because he's not getting the opportunities but when he does get eight and he did it against the steelers when he got nine carries in that game. He's done multiple times this year. And i think that you know again. I don't want like you said. Bobby i don't wanna have tony pollard. Running the ball twenty five times by any means but i think you need to his workload because you're increasing. The offense is ability creates explosive. Plays something they haven't been doing Sestak prescott went out since zeke elliott's fallen off a little bit and my one of my arguments here also okay. Yeah he was averaging two yards or even if you want to give them back argument well it's two yards a carry until that forty ardor. Okay well you don't give me Zeke's games this season where he breaks his one eleven yard run for the game that out of his three and a half yards perform. And then. yeah you're two yards a carry that it's the same thing can be said about zeke. It's just on a much smaller scale. That's been zeke. The last honestly two seasons he was the he wasn't he wasn't that guy last year in fact if we look at it two thousand seven. I don't know why people say like. Oh i haven't been the same back the last two years like if you look at it eighteen was a good year. For zeke. zeke was really good eighteen. And like you know he wasn't gonna work here but he was good and he still had some dynamic playability of that big game against detroit Hit something like one. Hundred thirty yards rushing on sixteen carries against seattle like he was making plays But i think realistically what you've seen more of you've got two thousand sixteen and twenty eight with the explosiveness you've got the zero burst you know. Heavy legs churning the pile the in two thousand seventeen twenty nineteen and twenty twenty. And it's like you know. That's that's not sustainable. And i'd rather and i don't think there's any way to move on from this offseason but certainly i think it'd have to be your after but like give me tony pollard. And kylian hill for mississippi state. Gimme tony pollard. And thailand hill over zeke. Right to your football team is better. If you have tony paul thailand hill as you're running backs or even honestly tony. Pollard enrico data. You're better i think with that. Do oh than you are with zeke as the belco i. I definitely agree. Let's dive into some draft stuff. We're gonna. We're we're wrapping things up. But i wanna talk draft. I know you're you're diving into it. You're you're starting to kind of reach out and talking to a lot of these prospects to who were going to be in the draft this year. I know it's been a crazy year for college. Football but Cole had a question for you as far as draft goes. And i have a few four years. Well if if you've got a few more minutes with us absolutely not yeah. Bobby mentioned and hill is a prospect. That you wouldn't mind the cowboys adding the roster pathetically Who has some guys or even what position or row would you want the cowboys to take on in the first round even on day to improve this team will will. Where do you think dallas needs. Improved the most to take that next step in the division and Get over the hump and really make a run in the playoffs. Assuming that dot prescott is resigning fully healthy and all of that. I mean if the values there in the first and or second round. I wanna go. I wanna get a tackle like you gotta get ahead of tyrants exit here because that's coming sooner than i think people think and i will. There's been this talk about you. Know why go get. And they're not in position but why go get panay. Soule you know can play guard. What's play guard for a year or something you know well tyrants at none no if you're drafting tyron smith is gone. That's just not i i would not. I think it's fifty. The tyron smith ever played the game for the cowboys again regardless of nhl or not and so my thought is go. Get a tackle in the first or second round. find the best value. If that's you know if that's cool that's christian der saw it's you know rashawn slater go get one of those guys plug it in. Pull rip off the band aid. Get your new left tackle and that every other pick after that throw at defense..

Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott will play on franchise tag of $31.4M
"This was the biggest surprise I think I've said on this show. Eighty million times I thought this was going to get done We were recording this thirty seconds before the franchise tag deadline at like three, fifty, nine, twenty, five, as I'm saying this so you know. Knock on wood that it holds true, but Dak Prescott will officially going kirk cousins route as his long term extension with Dallas cowboys was left. negotiated a long term deal reports indicate that the sides broke off talks as early as march in never really hop back on the wagon the cowboys would like you to know and I wrote back in September that they were offering him more than one hundred million dollars in guarantees. Guarantees which depending on if it's a practical guarantees, are actual monetary guarantees would be an NFL record Dak Prescott would like you to know that they also insisted on an extra year of service for that privilege. It looked like he was. He was searching for more something along the lines of the Russell, Wilson, deal where it was more of a four year more compact thing, and then you can dip again, for your thirty Still Shocked I think he's a top five quarterback I thought Seth Wall Dirty Espn made a good point that if you had to round up, Fi, you know. Two or three quarterbacks that you were sure in five years, we're still going to be top five quarterbacks Dak. Prescott would certainly be one of them so I don't understand why this didn't get done I think it's a gigantic financial mistake. for the cowboys of cost themselves now the franchise tag now becomes the floor. The next franchise tag now becomes the floor for the next negotiating period, and so on and so on. We've seen how this works out. But what's the deal I wonder you know he's? He's one of the most efficient players in the league. He fits well in the offense. You kept the coordinator. Is this Mike McCarthy saying? I WANNA. Get a look at the Sky I. Yeah this one is surprising as well to me. Connor I mean it seemed like they were the last couple of weeks headed toward their kirk cousins situation, but it's still kind of stunning that they took care of their running back before their quarterback like this all dates back to that decision to sign Ezekiel Elliott I instead of taking care of the quarterback, and that and they end up here and now they're in this as you referenced this. Three, year kind of tag situation where the numbers go up, which obviously is the base negotiating point for a long term deal, so you know next year would be. This year's tag is about thirty one million next year tag is like thirty seven and a half million or so, and then they have a choice between the transition and a super high franchise tag the year after that as opposed to the long-term deal. Deal
Coronavirus: Ezekiel Elliott, several Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans players test positive for COVID-19, per report
"Several NFL players have been diagnosed with COPD nineteen players from the Texans out how boys tested positive for the virus including star running back Ezekiel Elliott the news comes as the NFL is prepared to open training camp next month the league has not yet detailed protocols for players testing positive in camp
Sports leagues face challenges amid plans to reopen
"Sports world, facing setbacks as leagues hope for a return according to reports several NFL. Players including cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott testing positive for covid nineteen. It comes as Brooklyn. Nets star Kyrie Irving reportedly said he was against the NBA's return. Due to nationwide protests, CNBC DOT COM sports business reporter Jabari, your US tonight along with mark, Ganassi's the CO founder of Sports Marketing Powerhouse Sports Core Gentlemen. It is good to see you mark to the NFL I. How is this news of the positive test playing out? You think in the League office or better, yet Roger Goodell's basement. and which which holds which basement that is into night? Here's the thing Scott. The NFL fully expected that there would be. Positive cases the NFL players are part of society, so they knew it was a matter of when not if it protocols in place, they've been working with doctors and medical with the Players Association. They're doctors and with doctors all across the country and the CDC and they've got this sudden got this covered. This was now it said the phases isolation then the next protocol. Protocol will be participation, so they actually expected this. They actually specter will be will test positive even in the fall when Games are taking place. I was GONNA ask you. What is the League willing to tolerate? Do you think in terms of a case number? It sounds from you as though they are expecting that these cases could rise in. They're still gonNA play. They are expecting. There will be cases, but they do expect you know. Three months ago we just got the virus just took root and look how much more we know three months later. The NFL season doesn't start for three months from now imagine how much more information image the protocols that will know that are better and how to deal with it that we'll know in three months, so the NFL is going to use this time wisely it's GonNa Learn. What happens with the NBA Major? League Baseball, the NHL MLS on the soccer. Soccer Teams in your even the Australian rugby they're in contact with to make sure that the NFL the NFL players, association, have as much information as they can have the best procedures and protocols, so the season takes place, and if there are players that that get virus, they will be isolated. They'll be treated in the games will still take place okay speaking of the NBA. Let's bring in Jabari young now in Jabbar. We have issues as we said possibly. As it relates to the NBA coming back as well. What can you tell us tonight? Well, it's just the same. The internal friction! Players probably. Did Not were not aware of all of the dynamics of what debt bubble Dannon. Landau was going to tell. They know that the MLS is want beat. They didn't know that a Disney up. Employees were not going to be quarantine is so now you have a whole bunch of questions from a league body. That's wondering okay. What's going on? And what are we going to do? Sky's get tested nothing. Obviously you see God like the White Howard and Kyrie Irving. Having their own issues with going back because of the protests in what's going without country from a social injustice standpoint, they have every right to stand up for what they believe in, but from an economic standpoint, the players stand to lose a lot of money. If they don't go back so I don't think there's anybody around the league right now. Thinking that July one NBA wants to come back. That date is not gonNA still be fulfilled I just think as a matter of. of WHO's going to go on the NBA has made it clear. They're not forcing anybody to go, but if you don't go, you don't get paid so if the players don't go, they just sit out. They don't get paid and I think that'll have their own form of protests. Some are voicing their concerns. That may be going would be better because of the high profile that the players would have maybe Lebron James Among those taking that stand. What do you know about that? Absolutely. That's the platform you when you down in the NBA platform and I don't think the NBA, nor espn a northerner sports which the Games will air on would have any problem with the players expressing themselves and I think if you players right now. Maybe you kind of go to the table you go to the owners, and you try to get more, and you say. Hey, listen you want us to come back. How each owner donate to some type of social injustice organization, some type of economic reform in a neighborhood. How `bout to force the owners to give back. You guys want us to go back down there. You want us to risk our lives you. You want out health to wants to go play Hibachi give back to black communities are more than which doing set initiatives aside use this platform to not only makes a Mega Stan, but use it for economic purposes, because guess what the owner Dan and make a lot of money from the NBA players coming back down and Landau and risking their lives and play.

Cowboys to move on without Jason Garrett
"Jason Garrett's time up as coach of the Dallas Cowboys Edward a reporting Jerry Stephen Jones have decided coach will not be part of the organization moving forward on Friday and paid Simmons on why this process lasted so long after the season to other Jerry and Stephen Jones have moved slowly out of respect for Jason Garrett you know they have a long history with him as a backup quarterback you to this is that coach a head coach's father was in the organization when Jerry bapa team as a scout and they finally concluded that phase of this process and that's going to end with Jason Garrett not being a part of the organization beyond his expiring contract and when exactly they make that announcement I thought sure what I've been told soon and that the next phase will have them moving into the process of interviewing candidates in the battle begin quickly after phase one is totally finished off yes was contract set to expire January fourteenth status with the team at issue since last February the cowboys didn't give a contract extension they missed the playoffs in twenty nineteen finish eight neighbor the four time in his tenure as coach Keyshawn Johnson on the job candidates and Jerry Jones himself he was on sports and we stand ready to make a decision on it there was the eight their long term in the obvious would clearly felt that their work you say while they waited till Thursday well the food that just won't really it just is so you kind of say okay take a deep breath we get back to the facilities we talk about a little bit we think about we pondered overnight we need or Thursday we meet on Tuesday we meet on Wednesday we have a conversation and we finally so you know women the best thing for us to do if not give the public what they looking for what they looking for me to do is be extremely mad and walk out of there on Sunday night if fire you on the tarmac so instead of doing that this call wait a couple days are you playing for the cowboys you're familiar with Jerry Jones and and and his thinking all what happens next now in this search for the next cowboys head coach I think a guy like Mike Zimmer Minnesota Vikings head coach could potentially be a candidate you say how could that be well I I II coach there in the deepest corner along try defensive coordinator for Jerry Jones is the bill Parcells fact either stay here they know what they're getting in that particular coach but also there's a young officer coordinator in cabin step band he this sitting there in Minnesota the Minnesota Vikings don't want to part ways with him they don't want him all of a sudden start to get interviews and become a category another team so I would be surprised if somehow might dimmer wind up being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in the cabinet she takes over as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings so a lot of story lines this call come about here over the next with date but I think this time around you will get the head coaching job right where the coach may be season one more before we go do you think that at this point Jerry Jones is ready to surrender more control to a head coach now then he has been willing to in the past as bill Parcells left and and I want to turn this on your stamina I am right now status is not a defense Jerry Jones was some what he is and even as well as we clay as well as Jerry junior what is your you Jones gone wrong with that organization other than the head coaching hire that's a very good question that's very good everybody everybody everybody said here you're you're here the one on that team thank you for calling the latter team for the National Football League I would I would argue and say that their top five channels it is four tally dole is a National Football League the problem is that head coach because you're you're not holding the plate yeah well that gives the player is a free pass for having innate need season the talent on the field didn't win enough games he and Garrett will finish as the second longest tenured and second most winningest coach in team history Tom Landry a record of eighty five and sixty seven the wonders to playoff games unable to get past the divisional round Mike wells Myron Medcalf on Freddie Fitzsimmons the Dallas Cowboys there you know they draw attention but the the the days of being America's team and wanted to be part of what is age and it's not the same anymore it is not the same strictly because of what you have to deal with away from just coaching of football team is not simply you know put together a strong staff the coaster brakes of Amari Cooper Ezekiel Elliott and dak Prescott it's also having the answer constant questions from your boss the owner Jerry Jones deck could become a headache when you're you can't simply just focus on the task of putting your team in the proper position the try to have success there's a side show that comes with it and some people are built or not built to be able to deal with that so you got to find the right coach who is not only a great Exynos guy but somebody who's mentally strong enough to handle the constant you know looking over the shoulders and the pestering of your boss meddling in the inside of things wonder why things are not going well or to give us suggestions on what you should be doing that's not something easy that everybody can handle that type of situation well it and not everybody wants it and that's why I think a lot of these cultures your Matt rules related rallies urban Meyer's why except that to me if you're not going to modernize the structure of your organization so that your owner can do what every other owner does and take a backseat and not be this forward facing figure who's hosting its own press conferences after the game sometimes undermining the head coach then then how can you expect to attract a great candidate bomb out rule no one eight I'm leaving Baylor I got a chance to build something there if I'm leak in Raleigh I'm in Oklahoma and every year I get a chance to go to the college football playoff leave in Oklahoma where I can coach for another decade at least about continue to succeed ever murmur Meyer I'm not leaving LA or on the TV analyst making good money watching a lot of football injuries bouncing around the country see a lot of teams to go to Dallas where I've got a deal with Jerry that's why I think it's going to be difficult if Jerry Jones wants to continue to be Jerry Jones I don't think Mike he's going to end up with any of the top candidates identifying potential replacements Bobby carpenter and fox college football reporter Bruce Feldman gas on Freddie impede Simmons Stephen Jones Jerry Jones offered that coaching job urban Meyer she would say I think that's a hard job to say no urban probably wouldn't be needing to be for another year is that all you but who knows enough the big job at the glamorous job and remember the nose you know damn owns his courage and damn ongoing expound acted it all back thank god yeah I was supposed to do the oil itself journal part of mine and to buy that it was offered so you're going to want to meet your need to guide it was a proven track record we've done it before who's been in the playoffs the only guy that I look at the newest hires cycle that's really available is Mike McCarthy and it's free thank god I'm not that I'm not the biggest Mike McCarthy stand the world but he's the only guy that it holds no one Barty and that is the only thing that Jerry Jones once he is getting older is that you know you if you spend more time on this earth that he's going to spend has the last was starving if you get that oracle Marty troche with them of the order would love to put it in there Mike you've done that you chose to leave

The Dallas Cowboys and their internal battle for an offensive identity
"You're if you bet football if your fantasy football all I just love football and what kind of meat sandwich the little. Bits and pieces of film study of Greg Cosell forty years. NFL films somebody. I rely on for the draft after I rely on for a lot of my insight and Greg Cosell is joining us. Greg how were you pre-thanksgiving. How are you doing great? Hope you have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow. Thank Hugh very much. So we watched Dallas in New England. One of my questions with Dallas all year has been. What is their offense of identity? When you watch film what what do you think? They think they're offensive identity. Is I think they're struggling right now. To determining whether their offense still runs through through Ezekiel Elliott or whether they believe that they can transition into a little bit more of a passing team. Given the fact that they're three receivers are among the top two-three receiving trios in the NFL The other issue. I think they're struggling with that. Plays into this is the fact that for the most part over the last three or four weeks. They've not run on the ball as efficiently as they had earlier in the season. So I think they're. They're struggling with exactly what their identity is. They had a really difficult time with New England when you play new England Colin. You have to be able to defeat man coverage you can do that with scheme or you can do that by finding your best individual matchups. They really couldn't do either. Or and Prescott had a bad game in a game like that you don't get a lot of throws and when you do get those throws you have to make them and he missed them and I and therefore they really struggled to move the
Cowboys’ Dak Prescott earning bigger bucks with every start
"What Sunday Sunday's thirty five to twenty seven win over the Detroit? Lions Dak Prescott became one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history with four games of at least three hundred seventy five yards passing two touchdown passes to be first ten games of a season the other. US Oh yeah. That's Joe Montana or a cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is rallying for Dak tweeting Sunday. I say a man on that note. We welcome Dominique Foxworth on me on that note though. Pay That man. That's it's a good note to come in on. I'M GONNA. I'm Oh no question. Stephanie Has Dak earned his elite payday do better thought he owned it before the season began. I thought he deserved to be paid eight. I thought he deserved to be paid along the same lines as costs winter particularly considering the fact that he's had a considerably better season than Carson Wentz. I think he's validated that even more. I'd like to also stay this though. Even though costs at once had an abundance of people dropping his passes at this number should be better it does not negate the fact the Dak Prescott has looked better. You have a new officer coordinated. Clearly you prioritize passing instead of running you have answered the call and the biggest thing for me that resonate with that that resonates with this something. Say something to be said about filming in the moment now we usually use use it clutch moments when the precious own. Well guess what the pressure has been on Dak Prescott before the ball tipped off the season because you never got paid. It's football. It's a violent sport. You play the quarterback position so you are a target stationary or otherwise for two hundred. Seventy pound lineman Georgian of forty to fifty pound linebackers and everything in between you literally putting your body and your life on the line every single snap you take yes. Here's a guy that is getting paid two million dollars in an age where we've got Russell Wilson example. Getting paid thirty five. This is this guy is getting paid. Two million dollars no security in an age where we've got guys sign up for a hundred and thirty one hundred and forty million dollars. There plays his position and he goes out and he plays. He's like this complete nearly sixty percent of his passes. Got About Twenty One touchdowns nine interceptions. Okay over the last three games. He's throwing nine touchdowns just two interceptions exceptions. You just can't stay Arazi deal Elliott struggling over the last two games combined. Ezekiel Elliott doesn't even have a hundred dollars over the last two games. I think it was forty seven a couple of weeks. Let's go over twenty five last week and look at that and Dak Prescott doing what he does. I think he has more than validated that he deserves his money and he deserves reading.

"The cowboys and you're you're part of something that's at times seems larger than live because you sing it you seeing the struggles in the last twenty five years. A cowboys hadn't won anything and yet. They're the most values sports franchise in the world so i think a lot of that goes along with it. I think jason smith and i think ultimately ultimately jerry jones is a businessman and he will do things that are that are cut throat but he likes you. He pays you and takes care of we then. I'll send you feel like there's acceptance and you're one of his one of his one of his people and just one of the family you know and i think that that's what he does a good job bob look around you. I mean you get on a run and i'd say i'd tell these and i tell stories all the time about being a cowboy back in the nineties needs and the rockstar years but fast forward to twenty years later and there is still somewhat a demand for an old ask cowboy boy that has to simple ranks so i embrace that and i don't run from it i mean i think we try to do things and go and develop business and everything but ultimately it comes back to you and i i in r._j. I will say this the people a lot older the remember me but the people don't forget the success that you have especially in that area so yeah. That is the brand that's part of the whole thing that makes sense and it's it makes sense that jerry would be able to to get certain guys to understand it. I mean it's not a coincidence that cowboys pro shops are now selling you know. Jalen is clear. I view we need to see if we can get ourselves a couple of weeks. Thanks got new. He's got a new jersey hot. Yeah i mean you say it's not white but grey right yeah. I and it's funny because my son we went back to normal last week and we want to win the business. He's a freshman there and my wife had to buy him some something because he she bought for my daughter his twin sister guess what he wanted freaking baker mayfield jersey guess how my cost asked my wife one hundred dollars hundred fifty bucks wow well i mean hey but that your son's sooner now at the guy but my point is has it does the the the apparel and the the jerseys are very expensive and so again in san zeke signs and you mentioned dana smith. Hey that's the first thing the marketing the genius of the marketing of the dallas cowboys and there's a reason why that the cowboys and and if they're playing against the marquis marquis opponent made the giants game for instance. I guarantee we'll we know this r._j. The most watched n._f._l. Game on sunday without a doubt because that's what they carry. It's <hes> it's really interesting yeah. It's really interesting. It's really fine. You mentioned the giants game. This was kind of our are are reset. Get back to normal. We'll preview the giants game and kind of what we're looking forward to <hes> later in the week but i think you mentioned it. Tony these are three. I don't wanna call him cupcakes but these are three not softballs but they're three less intimidating games facing the cowboys starting the season well. It's a great way to gray momentum madam as you mentioned r._j. The winnable games and i'm looking at those first regains and when you got to home the home opener against the giants it's which is probably the better on offense in line <hes> but they have issues a around. They got saquon barkley tremendous talent and they got allied landing. I mean that's got daniel johns looking over shoulder so but that's a winnable game and then they you know the following week they go to washington and i don't know helter skelter. I don't know what washington is going to have this year but i know it'll be a tough game on the road but that should be a i'm gonna say easy when they got the dolphins was probably it'd be taking aching. They got <hes> ryan fitzpatrick man. That's crazy the guy he's just like the energizer bunny i mean he just keeps on going on right now..

"Of this team that is deep everywhere and if that works like why does people are so stuck on a look at look at aaron rodgers he's perhaps the greatest talent ever play the position but he's on a team that is really weak and individually cannot elevate that so i mean even having in aaron rodgers cannot necessarily fix your problems at that makes sense yeah. He said he can't care the team because he's just he's. He's not capable of. I mean he needs some help and more balanced anson he's had injuries and then. Jacoby said he'd just get a nice extension now. Since he's the guy he did years two years thirty thirty. Five male saw also so there's a prime example is a guy that is played but it's been more of a backup role now. He's a starter and they're saying okay. Here's the keys and and by the way we're gonna give you a nice little race but yeah. I think you have to have balance. I mean we talk about it all the time most good teams in the national football league at balance the new england patriots at balanced may when iran at <hes> last year where they run the football in the last part of the season because you know they just became more of a running team the super bowl and then playoffs look what they do. They're able to run the football of course that's gonna make tom brady mean that the super bowl always <hes> the lowest in the low scoring super bowls ever but to my point my point is is that you got to have balance and no one's ever got aunty for having balanced because when you play a team defense on you have to think about different things and more of a dual threat than a lot harder so everyone wants that problem if we had the problem and guess what that means you better players and unfortunately or fortunately for guys that are on that team. They're going to get paid what they're what the value is. I wanna ask you tony about the jalen smith contract and that really about the financials of it but since we haven't seven five <hes> since it happened since it does kind kind of relate to everything going on jalen talked about the brand equity associated with the cowboys and how he wanted to be a part of it and how he recognized it and we know that jalen and could be on shark tank if you want to. He's this really sort of entrepreneurial person. <hes> what are your thoughts on that because i mean you've got a career in the media. I mean you know i mean in to to be frank. I mean is that would ju- attribute that to being a part of the dallas cowboys and specifically being a part of a cowboys group that one you know when you were there two super bowls. I i remember when brett farve retired. There's a lot of people that a lot of guys retired and i said well. I just want to get as far away from football as i can remember brett far says you know that's not me. I'll football always be part of my life. I mean it is a matter if you've been playing for twenty years and i think for me and you no you look in my office behind me. I have a lot of cowboys stop jersey but think being able to be on the part of a team now. Had i not played for the cowboys all boys during the nineties and maybe my life would be a little different but being part of a team that has the brand and people hate to hear that but i think everyone wand reluctant reluctantly says that is on other teams nasa football league that there's something about the star and i'm not just saying that because i was part out of two super bowl teams and played and on a great i would say dynasty team understood. It stays with you and i think if you look at jalen smith breath this is hold. The kadhamy in the type of guy is in the story but you can't. It's a great movie. I mean i would pay fifteen bucks ago watched watch that movie because i know what the indian is something great and so i think a lotta guys especially whenever you're with.

"All those players justify getting extension and contracts jason smith breath we all know the story about him and riff injury and no no one really thought that he would be where he is now because it just how bad injury and what a story that is and so they rewarded him which i think is great the bill to see a guy really just work through hell and just really does work his ass off and get rewarded lael. Collins is another story look what happened when he got drafted allocation. We all know that the there was some there was some really odd a crime that he was basically a named in and and drop them out of the first round has created cowboys suck a flower on him they signed and they gave you know two years ago toward that dill up and extend his contract paid him and then in indiana zeke and you mentioned all these guys that they brought what in the cowboys drafted and really justified why they should get paid and without a doubt. I mean again with zeke elliot. I mean it's a no brainer main. I mean you know you. You have to pay the dude. You have to give him what you know. He deserves and look. I mean back mean everyone. There's always a kind of a question mark and what he can do but i think his i think more than more than anyone else in his team i guarantee daquan zeke elliot the beside because again and it takes a little pressure off dax not all of a sudden had to be the guy tony pollard this expectation guy that had a great preseason okay precincts and i mind that so i think that this is so many things that were factor getting a deal done but i think without that their offense and is collectively kelly moore more jason garrett. I mean just to get this these these things don and put it behind him and move on because we all know there is a lot riding on this season listen. I think this year in in just directly in just looking at what is the expectation on this team. I don't remember your when there's so much ex patient expectation on this especially when it involves a coach's ass in his head job football is finally back doc and nothing adds to the excitement of watching that first game like having a shot at a million dollars draft kings the leader in one day fantasy football is celebrating.

Jerry jones and steven jones were pro wrestlers but they are tag team partners one day. It's jerry banging on zeke. The next next steven jones banging on d. Then it's jerry banging on zeke and steven jones begging on zeke. These guys are tag team partners w._w._e. Which by the way is coming to fox experi soon. Let me go to the first thing. Jerry came out. Remember that and jerry said you can win. Super bowls without star running backs and then stephen even came out and said couple days later you know any money we give zeke has just taken away from other cowboy stars and jerry came came out yesterday and said albert alfred morris the running back they signed has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen came out out later in the day with rich eisen and said he won't call us back here stephen jones. How often are you talking with. Zeke's team these these very rarely. There's this perception out there about negotiations that you know there's these ongoing talks and go on hours at a time and you know that's just not the case a._c. Kinda set the boundaries of where you think it should be and certainly <hes> you know they're all represented by very sharp people and they're trying to do the best for their client line and you kind of sit there and you do on it and you think about it. You know you're always trying to take something that might bridge a gap. Okay so remember this. This is the latest thing it's a tag team partner jerry. You can win super bowls without great running backs steven. You're just taking money out of dagenham. Ariz hands jerry sorry yesterday. Alfred morris has the best feel of any running back i've ever seen and then stephen jones comes out later and says nobody's returning our calls. We're not close. Okay okay so this is tag team zeke. Are they getting nervous. Are they getting anxious. Now i've felt from the very beginning jerry. Stephen have been very shrewd with their public public comments but there is a reason they are going out in public. They are trying to put pressure on zeke. I think zeke has two things going for him here and they're the things that people think well. He's a great player. They need no. He's got two things going for him number. One jerry jones is seventy six years old..
