Where do the Cowboys go from here? To the trade deadline — but as sellers instead of buyers
"The Cowboys easier to write about when they win or when they lose? Uh, they're easy to write about what they lose. When they win. People feel good. You sell more newspapers when they win. That's a proven thing. So there's that. But, man what you know now, sometimes when they're bad, they're just not interested. And they just kind of go away. Like I don't know what it's like to right about when the Detroit Lions are bad. They probably just people are waiting for the Red Wings to drop the puck. But when the Cowboys are bad, there's usually nine different things in Iraq, And this year there, there might be that might be multiplied. So there's you can just pick out of a hat. And and and go from there. What is Jerry? June Jones do now? You know, one of the really disappointments with serious disappointments, obviously of code. But one of the rial lighter disappointments of this year is that he doesn't do press conferences after every game, because I can't imagine. What level he would have reached yesterday. Um, you know, it's Tze one thing to get beat up by Seattle or airy Arizona's offense. They can't stop the run. With anybody, not the Washington football team. They run for over 200 yards. And if you want to pick one area of the Cowboys that does not beat up my injuries. Their front seven They've got Jalen Smith. They got banned arrest. They've got the Marcus Lords they've got. They've got elegance. They got Everson Griffen. They got Tyrone Crawford. They got guys were supposed to be there, and they can't tackle anybody. And then you have the hit on Andy Dalton and that nobody seems to concern about the chief shot by Jon Bostic. That wasn't it took the announcers of minutes to kind of recognize, but they did eventually, So okay, that's that's a brutal Yep. Be Amari Cooper is standing there and there's others around there had to be a number of players see it. I would think the entire offensive line and to see it. On nothing. Nothing at all. I mean, I can't imagine. If that was Dad getting hit like that that they wouldn't have done something but that that just pointed to the the give up factor of this team they looked like in the first quarter. They're out there to see when it's going to go badly, and you know how much it's going to feel like a ground hog day. They got nothing on either side of the ball, but quitting is worse than losing to him. Yeah. And of course, coaches will always and players will fight. You didn't quit. Everybody has a great attitude by when you see something like that, and when you see it That And when you see a team that just gets gassed in the run and announcers every week, whether it's the money, night crew or yesterday was was Moose. Ah lot of destroyed job back and they get very quickly. The out of position on these place. They really get outflanked quickly without defense. I mean, they're they're talking around the fact that team looks very poorly prepared and has no idea what to do in the players. Never respond if Jerry had to do over coaching. Well, I mean, that's what What was it about Mike McCarthy flying in and spending one night at the Jones house and all they were just so wowed by this guy. They couldn't believe it. Now, what have you seen in any game that he brings? You didn't call the plays so anytime the offense was playing well earlier in the year, That's Kellen Moore is offense. So what is he doing over there that he brings Emily brought in all these coaches? Guys he had in Green Bay 10 years ago. Mike Nolan, who hired him 20 years ago. It's just this. This cronyism tied coaching staff. And you wonder, and you wonder how much Jerry thought about like a mat rule. He mentioned Matt Rule one time last December, just after Baylor played in the Big 12 championship game. What a great young coach to thought. Matt Rhule wass. And you're Matt Rhule took over a team that was just God awful and got ready Cam Newton, and they released whatever they are three and four. They compete. Uh, yeah. I mean, I don't know. I don't know that he wouldn't like to rethink this lot. Now it's the first year so I think both the pandemic the DAC injury, the offensive line being completely wiped out. Those going allow the coaches to skate for year. But he has to be thinking this. This may have been a Terrible higher. The Cowboys buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. You know, I don't think they have a lot to sell. I heard somebody saying trade one of their wide receivers. They don't need that many hundreds of it. That's the one thing they have is good wide receivers. You want to trade one of those go You know, Draft Ah, linebacker with a neck injury. That's what that's what excites you about rebuilding the team. I don't think they will do much. There's certainly not Myers, they get by. I mean, I don't know why in the world you would add. Do it to a terrible collection of talent as this many injuries, but I don't expect him to do a lot, actually.
Fresh "Jalen smith" from Glen Macnow and Ray Didinger
"Morning, everybody. It is three minutes after 10 on a CE chili Saturday morning in the Delaware Valley, along with my pal, right in John Glenn Mac. Now, today's broadcast brought to you by our friends at the casino, a Delaware park. Delaware Park is open for gaming, live racing and golf. Visit Delaware park dot com. Lottery agent for the Delaware Lottery Must be 21 to play well, ray danger. We have a lot to talk about today. We'll set up tomorrow night's game will review what the Phillies and Sixers have done or haven't done. Ah, we have a very special what we're watching. And on the anniversary of the World Series, Pereira I didn't You're Brad Lidge. Hero of 2008 joins us at noon for Tell us your story. We're bringing him on to close the show. Appropriately enough there. I can't think of anybody better to do it. That is correct. But Ray I want. I want to savor this first segment. I want to enjoy this. I want I want a deep dive into the hot mess of a Dumpster fire that is the Dallas Cowboys now. Everybody knows the Eagles will play Dallas Smart night 8 20 kickoff largely empty. Lincoln Financial Field, Maryland Mike on the call. The line has moved over the week gray from I think it opened at 7.5 to 11 favor the Eagles. Allow me to say at the start. I don't have enough faith on this eagle seem to bet that but but Ray Let us bask in their suffering, shall we? Oh, go right ahead. OK, well, I'm going to I'm going to allow you to be the main deliver of this message. Although I'm going to start not with you, but with our old pal Michael Irvin because he was discussing the Dallas Cowboys defense. He was on with Angelo in the gang. Ah, nah. Thursday or Friday, my days blend together now, but he he offered this philosophy on how he regards the current Dallas defense as long as they've got open where free didn't known it be, And that's what I call it The open, Winfrey beef If you get 40 points, you get 40 points. You get 40 point, Everybody, everybody give 40 points. Daylami say I've never enjoyed Michael Irvin more finally won you over. That only took what 15 years thereabouts. So Ray, let's discuss it if it was our that even going to get into entirely everything that's wrong with him, because what's more fun for Eagle fans? Looking at the defence rays is a talent is it scheme is an effort. Yes, you won't keep going, will you? I remember you once told me and I really when you said this, this really stuck with me that when you look at college players as they might become pros You really judge them by how they perform when the team's losing the effort they put in when their team is down. One of the things I looked for you how you find in that in Dallas? Not so much. It looks it looks like At the first whiff of trouble. They just they just, you know, pick up the ball and go home. You know, there there. There's no fight whatsoever. Which is if I'm the Eagles. I mean, that's the theme. That I'm talking all week at the nova care. It's OK. Hey, boys, let's start fast. Let's come out fast. Let's get a lead. Let's get ahead of these guys and they'll quit. Okay. The one thing you don't want to do. Is, you know, futz around, make mistakes, Miss Field goals, get penalties and keep it close into the third quarter to where they have a thought that Hey, you know what? We might build a win this game. Don't let that happen. Okay? Don't even let that happen. You know, Start early. Get ahead score on your first possession. Get up 10 get up, 14. Whatever. And I guarantee they'll pack it in and you'll have it. You'll have an easy night's work. But don't let him don't you know, don't get sloppy like they are. Don't play down to their level and keep it close because all of a sudden Third quarter. If they're in it, they might decide to start playing. This has not been the Eagles practice this year. Habit this year is we've seen, you know they have these, You know, second half fourth quarter Comebacks that allow you to leave the game feeling fairly good, but they have looked terrible at the beginning of the end. And to be honest, we've seen a history of the Eagles kind of playing down too bad opponent. So this whatyou said, does not give me a lot of comfort. No. Now it's Look, this is kind of comes no surprise. I'm sure the coaches every coach has been Preaching that same message all week on. I would assume that these guys, they I mean, they have to know the truth of the matter. And the fact is, I mean, if you really want to take the long view of this thing, I mean, you know, the Eagles Cowboys both have the same number of wins, so it's not. It's not like the Eagle's Eyrie, vastly superior team. To them right now. On paper. At least, Cowboys still has some good players. But the differences and the Eagles have demonstrated this now over the last several weeks is that they're a team that will atleast fight you for 60 minutes. They're a team that will hang in there and battle throughout. I mean, they did it when they were way behind in Pittsburgh came back. They did it against Baltimore that came back against really good teams. And then last week, they looked like they were going to lose and they came back and beat the Giants. But they will atleast they will atleast commit to playing four quarters of football. The Cowboys have shown no inclination to do that, and was never more obvious than it was in the Washington game, which was just I just let just shameful. I mean, I don't have any great love for the Cowboys. I don't hate him quite like you do. But I don't have any great love for the Cowboys. But I will tell you that I was embarrassed. I was embarrassed for the Dallas Cowboys organization. What and and the history of that organization and their guy, and they're really good players that played there before. That had to sit home and watch that because that was that was just a dreadful performance now their defense. I mean, they still have some names. I know they started dumping guys this week, which was pretty interesting again. They're not out of the race here. But the Marcus Lawrence place for that defense, Layton and a vest. Vanda rash. Excuse me. Does seem to be hurt most of the time, but he's out there. He's on their defense. Travon digs. He was once a good player, Xavier Woods. He was once a good player. Yeah. Ah! How Alden Smith. I know he is. I have no idea what he is now that he's back, but How can they be that bad? Well, you you didn't mention one of the guys who I think is maybe the best player in the bunch. Now it's Jalen Smith. Yeah. I mean, the linebacker who's a really good player, but is playing awful right now. Yeah. I mean, they're They're really bad. Vander ashes, not playing well at all. I think he's he's always said every time I see a game, he's shaken up. And you know you feel for a guy who's playing hurt, But that seems to be the Yeah, Well, he was that in college. I mean, when you when they drafted him, I mean, he came with that big neck. Brace thing on, you know. Ah, and It isn't. I don't know that he's ever really been healthy for more than three games at a time, and it looks like now he's trying to play through something else. So he's very ineffective. Smith who I who I have seen be a pro Bowl level player isn't even close to that now. Lawrence is their best defensive lineman for sure, but he's looks like he's sort of wallowing in the mire as it were a you know, the way of it seemed to me. I love that. You just quoted the doors. I as I was saying, I was thinking I'm going all Jim Morrison, didn't I didn't. I didn't. I didn't quite think that the Cowboys were going to bring.
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the

"If Jared Goff has the most pressure for the Rams, here's where the pressure lies with the cow. Boys. It lies onto very good. Very young players on the defensive side of the ball the pressure lies with linebackers. Jalen Smith, enlightened Vander edge. The Rams like to run play action. They like to run Todd Gurley on the outside zone. That commits linebacker stretching them out sideline to sideline will Jared Goff pulls the ball back and hits passes behind those linebackers down the middle of field. It's going to be incumbent on those young linebackers to make the right decision quickly. Is it run is a pass? It's going to be incumbent on those young linebackers to make sure they're not beat over and over down the middle with passes throughout that game. If the pressures on Jared Goff on the ram side of the ball. The pressure is on those linebackers on the Dallas side of the ball. Now the game plan is obvious for the Cowboys. It's going to be run as humiliate dominate time of possession. And try to keep the ball of that explosive Rams offense his hands. It's not going to be Joe Thomas suggested it's not going to be fourteen points right off the bat. If it is. He's right. That's all the makings of a Rams win. But the Cowboys do what they've done to most opponents. It's going to be keep opponents very low scoring very low yardage in the first quarter keep that game under control. And has that domino continues to click down. Click. Click click click click from first quarter to second quarter third quarter. What you end up with is a low scoring affair a game that plays into the Cowboys hands a game that Indian comes down to one position. And has that final domino falls? It looks like this can Dak Prescott make another game winning play fourteen game winning drives over his career. The answer has resoundingly been. Yes. Up to this point can Dak Prescott. Do it. One more time that will be the pressure. That will be the formula for the Cowboys Jared Goff on the ram side, young linebackers on the cowboy side. And then ultimately Dak Prescott San I'm joined now by ESPN York's ninety eight point seven former cowboy giants defensive lineman host for those radio station that radio station your Chris Canty who's on.

Now, I'm not saying I'm above that. You guys aren't either. You have you guys ever searched your name? No only that time that Brad sham told me not to. Well, both of us not YouTube saints have just an ego. Where we we wanna know, what's what's the buzz about us. What's going on? I have. Okay. But I am just now learning even at my ancient age. Why do I need to argue with everybody? And so I think I think pro football players are starting increasingly I understand that you've got a million followers. You don't need to argue with Joe and flower amounts because he doesn't think you know, how to run routes. Yeah. Absolutely. So I like the I I love what tank Lawrence is doing. He's clearly got a team in all and any having fun with it. But then he's taken Cowboys fans along for the ride. Jalen Smith doing some of the same things Dak Prescott doing that too. So social media it maybe these guys are the leaders and teaching us. So so media, it doesn't have to be an argument. It can be it can be a pleasant experience.

"Talk to the Cowboys linebacker, Jalen Smith. He'll join us coming up. Oh. I see what else did I have here fourth straight season, Alabama and Clemson are meeting in the college football playoff. That's the most consecutive seasons in major college history in which the same two teams have met in a bowl game or a playoff game. The previous record was three straight seasons by Ohio State in USC from one thousand nine hundred seventy two through nineteen seventy four they met in the Rose Bowl all three times. I grew up hating USC for no other reason than they would beat Ohio State, and you could watch USC, and you realize that that's what like Ohio state's offense was not wide open. It was not exciting. It was not fun to watch. I mean, they would dominate the big ten. They'd always have a running back would get fifteen hundred yards and be up for the Heisman Trophy Archie Griffin. They had I think Jim Otis. Trying to think who else they had -nother running back back at that time where they were just great running backs, and you know, Woody Hayes would have a big offensive line. They go out to southern Cowan all of a sudden you'd see a completely different offense there. It was almost like Ohio State was the old NFL and USC was the old AFL, and they just opened it up and had fun. And I always looked at USC. So when my son goes, you know, I'd I wanna go to USC I go what four goes to go to school. I go. Why do you want to go to USC goes? Have you been to USC I go and come to think of it? Yeah. I understand it because he wasn't going to go to Dayton where I went my wife went to NYU. He goes I want to go where there's a big time football program. His timing wasn't great because he got out there, and they weren't very good. When he got there. Ohio State between sixty nine and seventy four played four times in a Rose Bowl. State versus USC. Yeah. Is that the wheelhouse? You remember? Oh, yeah. Just seemed like every year. Yeah. Who was the running back? He played. I think for the cardinals Kim Brockton now it's Brock John. Brought John tracking too. I think or did he play for the Packers Jim owed is played for the card yet. But I remember great Ohio State running banks for fifty Alex. But Archie Griffin. Winning back to back heismans there. Many went to the Bengals didn't amount to much in the pros. Oh. Let me see. We'll get some phone calls in here. Christopher in Oregon joins us. Hey, chris.

"That was a that was a very big one and. Of course defense had to speak Takkula place. You know, the one that the Randy Gregory Jalen Smith tag team. Touchdown. Just you know at a time when Tampa Tampa Bay was driving, and they put a stop to it and put seven points on the board in the first defensive especial team score all season long, which it was good to see them break through that barrier. So maybe now they can get a few more here in January. But that was just a great play. And then that was the other fumble where Randy Gregory came flashing in. And as blue as Brian brought us remark probably influenced it because the back running back probably took his eyes off the ball bec-. He's going. Oh, my gosh than the ball on the ground and Gregory both gets a chance to take it into the end zone. And that that set up the Cowboys with a touchdown the past Michael Dell. Because this is what I had said before the game. I said this is an error prone. Tampa Bay Buccaneers team they want to rollover Macomb rollover make them make them give you the ball. They did that twice. But the Cowboys did what they were supposed to do one the defense. They went and got a sixty nine fumble return. Touchdown Jalen Smith as you mentioned. But then on the next turn over the Cowboys said, hey, we're not going to waste any time. We're gonna put this in the end zone two plays later there. And yeah. And they made good on these turnovers. And so they really they had they were up twenty seven to thirteen at one time. That's an Aspen before before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers try to make a comeback towards the end. But too little too late. And these NFL teams are really close at the games defenses are going if they know that they have a nice lead like that a fourteen point lead. Yeah, they're going to soften up a little bit because they're just trying to sit on their lead. That's what they're doing. But you talk view said they were. Sitting on their lead your longest drive of the night for the buccaneers ended on downs eating the third quarter. And it was a weird game in a way. Because the the buccaneers got a believe trying to check here real quick. They got seven first downs by penalties. Yes. And some of those penalties were just a little is our that. I did not know that you could call delay of game on Stephen's. Yeah. I did. That was I don't think anybody would do that. At the time you now for like, and and the your woods. You know, roughing are not the the Reverend the passer was also dumb, the exhibitor the exhibitor woods penalty unnecessary roughness leading with his shoulder. I don't know how you call that. There's been changes. I do know how they call that. Because would you looked at it in real time? The first time the way at back. You know, the immediate fell came was helmet to helmet will the replay showed it w-. Wasn't. It was just such a violent hit. And that's where you know. Hopefully, they're going to come up with some way to reviews of these calls that obviously wrong to have somebody come in and say, no guys that wasn't of the rules. And then there was a Randy Gregory got called all sides one time and the replay showed that Randy Gregory, moved the split second. The Senator did. What what what can you do the guy timed it perfectly? And they threw a flag on me because they could believe he was that quick. That's just to me that was so that was just kinda ridiculous. I don't know..

"Brad sham the Shammgod Cavalier's radio network with the call Jalen Smith returned a fumble sixty nine yards for a touchdown. Nice and Dak Prescott account for two scores of the Cowboys clinch the NFC east twenty seven twenty win over the bucks. That's now to playoff trips in three years for Prescott Zeke Elliott since they entered the league Greg the Cowboys. They took care the, Dan business. They did it was kind of class like to me. This was Dirk cutters. You know, tenure in nutshell. Get everyone bucks game ever. Get twenty seven first downs to sixteen for the Cowboys. Have your offense give up fourteen points, essentially and the Cowboys who didn't need to do much basically scored two touchdowns with their defense. Ran the ball. And just kinda let the bucks blow this game. But you have to give credit to the Cowboys defense who even if they're giving up yards. They have guys like Jalen Smith like Randy, Gregory, who's definitely coming on strong to make big plays. That was enough in this one. There was a report from Ian Rapoport that cutter might keep his job don't necessarily believe that you can get fired. But a lot happens what they do these last two games and I didn't this game. But this can't bode well, it can't it's the exact same thing you've ever seen where the bucks are inside the five. It's like they did they did all the bucks moves. They got on the goal line and had a delay of game on the one. And then didn't score inside the five. They did they did everything. There was a crazy stat six of the highest bucks games in franchise history. In terms of first downs have come. This season with this bucks team of their their best ten games ever. In terms of first down their record. In those games are one in five. So so the best offensive games in terms of moving the ball in franchise history there cutter and nj Winston certainly is a big part of this find a way to lose. So they're talented and they call good place, but they're not smart at executing them. Well, they've also been attached to other than the last three or four weeks a terrible defense that gives up yardage and points, a waterfall and a quarterback that costs them two or two terrible turnovers game sometimes and I do apologize to the Cowboys fan because I mean, this is a big deal. We're talking about the bucks here. And I know it wasn't a pretty game. The Cowboys had two hundred thirty yards. But this is an exciting team. If you're a Cowboys fan, Jalen Smith late in Vander had monster games, both of them Lawrence and Gregory at a great game in Prescott stayed out of the way. This might have been Gregory, what are you laughing at with? I mean, I agree that this is a pretty exciting Cowboys team. It's one of the most fun cowboy wasn't. I remember. But I think Cowboys fans will be all right. If they don't get all the attention for one week. Okay. That's fair. Did we mention by the way that Sean Lee was a healthy scratch now which really feels like there were several reports about this one that he wanted late and Vander to play into that. The Cowboys wanted to ensure Sean Lee would be healthy for the playoffs. The second feels like spin. But I'll accept I mean, he played fifteen snaps last week. So that's kind of a weird spot to be in if you're him. So I don't know. I don't know where he has a place on on this team. I got the sense he was being selfless and said, hey, I'm not quite one hundred percent. Why don't we let late in Vander play? And I know with the way the NFL works. Every roster spot is so important on game day. But wouldn't it be good to have Sean Lee active in case late invented? I couldn't hurt more. They said having. I'm just not going to be like you want your backup linebackers to be special teamer. And if I don't know what the rest of their injuries situation is. That's why interesting. It is interesting.

"Because as you mentioned that's a ride marinate hide Marinelli staple just getting your pressure with your front for. I don't think it's going to change and one of the reasons why is because against pocket passers. I know Carson Wentz has more mobility than the most popular, but all the pocket passers have been the teams that the Cowboys have beaten the teams that they've had problems with our Marcus mariota. When Alex Smith was healthy. They lost to Cam Newton. They lost the Russell Wilson. And they lost the dish Watson. So it's the pocket passer. Matt Stafford that drew Brees is Carson Wentz is that they've had their success with. And I think a lot of that starts with that France Russia. They're able to get a front particularly with DeMarcus Lawrence. So I don't think there's gonna be a ton of some key situations, maybe, but the majority of that pressure is gonna come on Sunday from that from four it'd be interesting to see if the eagles go with designated rollouts just for that very reason that you stated because when. Can make plays on the Brandon out-of-pocket. So the eagles may be well advised to not wait till the path pushed them, they're just designate him to get there ahead of time. You mentioned Jalen Smith who's had a phenomenal year this year for the Cowboys real smart draft pick by them took a chance I'm coming back from injury, and it claimed to the level that he was before he got hurt in college. But Vandor ashes having a phenomenal year as well. Which the two young cowboy linebackers is actually the bigger key in the cowboy defense issue. That's a really good one to I'll say I'm gonna say Jalen Smith just because there's more situations where he's out there when they go to the dime package in any any kind of the loan linebacker. That's how they do a little bit with rash. But especially with Sean Lee being injured the hamstring all year, it's been Jalen Smith. And and then also the fact that just Jalen is is more comfortable, he knows the system more from being in it longer. So I'll give them a little bit of an edge. But no everybody down here is with what late Vanderbilt. We'll do it fast that he's been able to do what Jerry Jones said the other day that he's even amazed at it. Because he was there all along in the draft. You know, sitting there at nineteen. I I was I was big on James. And as he was falling to the draft. I was like I need to they need to make them hookah go up there and get 'em safety certainly strengthened his team. I thought that was gonna be the guy that went after and we had heard rumblings that they love late and Vander edge. And as the draft on folded, it it certainly that showed you that. I really feel even if. James would have fell there. They still gonna take late over and they fell in love with him in the draft process and as much as they loved him though. I think everybody's still a little bit surprised at just how easily and effortlessly he's kinda put himself in the lineup and made huge clay. It's been it's usually disaster. When Shawn Lee's hurt down here in Dallas in they've been six and one without him. So a lot of people are stunned about that. Yeah. That's unheard of them. Last couple of years shortly out equals Cowboys loss. And it's anything but this year kudos to those other two linebackers who certainly picked up the slack.

The most highly questioned shoulder injury debate might be over a lot of people wondering whether Marquel fulsome shooting woes were physical or mental turns out he has nerve issues in his neck and shoulder. The second year point guard will now be out three to six weeks. Rehabbing Nick, would you make this? I think it's ridiculous that he had to go to ten outside experts to get this diagnosed this was the exact thing threats outlet syndrome. People were just raining folks on Twitter were speculating about the last six weeks that this is what is this? You was I don't know how much is mental in addition to the physical injury. But Philly's medical staff has had this player in house for a year and a half and that he has to go outside to get a legit diagnosis. That ain't great. I think it's legitimate is definitely like the kid just woke up and said, you know, how can I sabotage my career more going on them then mentally? Like, I the lead. He seriously got a problem, and he's trying to get it. Right. He is not fit to play in the NBA. Right. Something's wrong with them. And it's not as head. I moved onto the Cowboys now young linebackers. Jalen Smith, and Layton Vander have been outstanding for the Cowboys the season. But according to Jerry Jones, Sean Lee will be the starter whenever he gets healthy and can play again should the cowboy stick with the young guys or go back to see this is a tough one here. This is one of the things of your good player in the league. How do they transition that younger player to take in your spot? Because ultimately, we know you gotta go. There's going to be a better player going to take your spot. I believe they're making a mistake by doing this. Because I believe that Vander. Pose a different set of problems for Dow douses easier to run on with Sean Lee because he's undersized Vander has that power speed. And also look at the energy him and Jalen Smith had playing together their special combination. Right. It's not like Vander isn't gonna see the field. Again. You may start John Lee. But I'm guaranteeing, you Vandereycken just as spent a lot of time on the football gives you a nice rotation there. But I'm with you, man. He is he's earned the right to be there. And I think they'll probably play him a lot more than they play on leave. If they start Sean Lee finally speculation over who replace Mike McCarthy in Green Bay, the current betting favorite former Bronco's coach and pats offense coordinator, Josh mcdaniels thank with this a good fit for Green Bay for Aaron Rodgers. I think you have to understand when when you're talking. Josh McCain's you're talking about a guy that puts people in position to win like he understands when you when you coach for the patriots you start on the opposite side of the ball. So we start on the defensive side of the ball. And then he goes and transitions the offense set of the ball, and they do that with the patriots. So that you understand when you're game planning what the rules of coverage or were guys have to be how leveraged guys so they do this with everybody. I mean, like Mapei Tricia defense Gordon forever. He start on the office of the ball. He was an offense of line coach. And so that's something that they do within their organization so his ability to find guys and to get guys open into exploited defenses talking guys at key coached in Denver when he was at gorge, they will tell you, absolutely brilliant. When it comes like, he would tell you. This was going to happen. This what they're going to do this how we're going to attack it, and it would come out exactly what he said. So he is great with that stuff. He is going to have to learn how to be his own, man. And I think that's a biggest thing coming from New England is your euro, man. Like what what what what are you like the like preaching? This is the patriot way. This is the way we did it with the patriots. Here's how we did this Bill Belichick like you walk into the organization and guys automatically roll. There is often they want this. They want you to be Bill Belichick Junie. And we know.

I don't think the game was out of handling all you know where you ought to be ashamed. I'm not ashamed of myself because that was rocket launched yesterday. That's exactly what that offense needed because the pieces are all there. If you just utilize the pieces and they all fell together and I'm not gonna get up and do Connor arm swing strut.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna back into that corn that open at Washington two and a half point favorites quickly down to two probably bet down to pick it before it's over. And that brings me to my cowboy defense. Listen, Jalen Smith is become terror. He's just tear. Everywhere fly and he can hit and he can blitz and he can disrupt and Byron Jones. Very quietly just might be playing the best cornerback. I'll give you that what an athlete he is. And again, they tried him at safety and they moved them back to corner. And I think he's a corner, big strong. Say, you got to think too much. There's too much space. You got the base to cover. I agree, and I got to give a quick shout out to the tackling Dutchman as you call him. You like actually the covering Dutchman. I didn't like him when they drafted him, but he is long and lanky and he can fly man. The end of the Sean lira Janus Sean Lee might be eligible to come back next ever. You know healthy wacky, what he won't be coming back to a starting job. But anyways, get the thing when you look at a defensive player, especially at linebacker, you wanna know, is he said. Why James he said, well, he's Notre Dame Jalen Smith chance on him around and he had a career threatening Neha, just destruction and the awful. They gave him a year. They get re half off all year. He wasn't himself last year. So basically if taken him three, two and a half years to get to hear big at some special do come down, he'll and he's thumping people. Boy, he the head bossom when he com. He come with bad intentions. Running back, I'm telling you gotta, pick him up. You better step up. He's not swimming you. He's putting his helmet and your chance, and he's driving you to the quarterback. And now I have potentially the best pass rush in all football and certainly the deepest one because David Arvin showed up yesterday for the first time. Elite Collins came off injury and all of a sudden, if you can add him to DeMarcus Lawrence Taylor and. Got taco, and there's a lot. Tuggle may one play with inking taco. Just watch when they crank up. They're going to be all over. Check down. They're going to be on, but you love him. Remember now he needs to win this game because you know you're the guy that you said was terrible, didn't beat the Cowboys. So he needs to win this game. Yeah, you need to win this guy happening, but that is foreign Washington, brief careers, Blake, Bortles. Blake, Bortles was awful. Blake, Bortles has been because he's going how many points yesterday? Seven, six points against the. He would score ten. I was giving him a little break and he scored seven.

Wow, two weeks away, Shannon. How will this quarterback situation play out for the eagles new controversy byu brewing here. If Carson Wentz healthy, he's going to be out there or if he's not he he has two weeks from Thursday to week from the twenty. Third of August, that's what Carson wins has to get ready to prepare to be able to think he's going to play in the next two preseason games. I do not. I do not. So you think he's going to go out on game number one day. The one does play in just play. Good luck. We don't need look. No cars wins a lot. Lot of scars with been playing football l. like, look at what happened when preparation meets opportunity. The man who has is house in order. Look some Cali saying Bayless to grandfathers. Then you go and all this stuff. Let me have my moment about Wilson Vania. He really liked you say, again wisdom over put it up on the Oh. show. With, would you make that up? Carso with would be just trying to lose my train cars with will be just fine and has about twenty days to get ready. He'll It'll be. be fun. Interesting. Seventeen date. He'll be ready to play the neat DeAnne Lebanon level yesterday. So obviously I do not believe that he's going to go out there and play. You just gonna have to trust that he's done enough this preseason throw it on the side. And then I can say what two weeks to get ready to level Levin, drill team stuff moving forward. The thing is get this young man had twenty three touchdowns by week nine. They play seventeen weeks. I know a guy had twenty two total touchdowns and seventeen weeks call his name. He played in the same division though, but I don't need to call his name give know who is all. I only know the MVP last year was Tom Brady that you remember that. But anyway, see people get caught up, all falls. He plays great. Do you do remember before those for the three games before the championship game and the Super Bowl, one touchdown. What I just murmuring coming in against the Rams. Out here in Los Angeles. Nine and he completes it to save the game. I don't know. I did that backup. Remember week sixteen. Yeah. Wouldn't that wouldn't that good? So there's nothing going on here. Walk into them. We'll be at their with that knee brace on big strapping, six foot, five guy from North Dakota, ready to go play, flip on, and that's what he's going to do..
Predictions for the rest of the NFL season
"Get in, second in the NFC, east for. Me the Dallas Cowboys nine seven record. It's, not a team that I love I I liked back Prescott love rookie Dak Prescott more than the second season Dak Prescott Dax in his. Second season compared to. His first season it wasn't very good but if you look at it just in the vacuum of his second season in, the, NFL for being amid round draft pick it. Still wasn't an awful year as equal Elliott was. Suspended at the beginning of the season, you have him back the offensive lines the best in the NFL. You and I differ on their defense I think they're going to be better than you think, you're not very high on. Their defense their pass catchers or terrible I'm very interested to see who Dak Prescott throws. The. Football Two and, I've been on record of. Saying their best pass catcher is they're running back Ezekiel. Elliott which is not the. Worst thing in the world because he is a very good football. Player and. He's got a great offensive. Line, blocking for Cowboys nine. Seven my second place team, in the. NFC same for me I feel like, maybe you, copied, off, of, me, I've, got the Cowboys at. Nine and seven second place in the NFC east I got them going to and. To against, the AFC south they're, going to. Grab them losing to Houston Jacksonville but. Winning, against Tennessee in Indianapolis Texans going sixteen and others year I might we haven't gone to the AFC south yet so the slow leak of. The your predictions for. The Texans so far they beaten two teams they're gonna finished in the top half of the decide when we get there, Jeremy, but right now it's anywhere from thirteen and. Three to sixteen and we'll decide but yeah I. Mean I've got the Cowboys beating teams, like Carolina at Carolina in Carolina week one that's going to be. A good game they could easily lose that game but I see them winning it I'm down, on their defense but if. Guys make steps guys like like Byron Jones like Jalen Smith Some some. Of the players like that if they make decent. Steps to get even better this year with late late and Vandereycken coming in. You can keep Sean John Lee staying healthy is like that's, the linchpin for the Cowboys defense every year like, him his health tells you what, the Cowboys defense is going to be because. If he's in there they're one of the. They're they're a really good defense if he's out there one. Of the, worst defenses in the. League so they could be better than I'm thinking but nine and seven just I. Couldn't look at this I couldn't look at the schedule and say yeah I. They could, win games, they could win eleven games I think I think nine is tops for them..

"The passer but i don't know what jalen smith that we're going to get this upcoming season now i think that that's one of the biggest questions that the cowboys have going into the season i think it's also why the late and vander ash pick is a good one you know you've got another linebacker in that group so of jalen smith can't carry the load that you may want him to you've got you've got another another young linebacker that the the front office really likes there and for me i don't think we'll get anything close to the notre dame jalen smith for this season i just think it's still too soon removed from the injury and if he's just now playing without the brace i mean that sort of makes me nervous just from a standpoint of is something else can happen to his knee i don't know how i'm not a doctor i don't know how likely that is but i just i don't know i i worry that with a nerve nerve injury like that it's so unpredictable something that you've never really see i don't want to put those types of expectations on them it's a great story and everything but i don't see him having that that i mean because before he he suffered that injury he was a consensus top ten pick for five top five pick for that nfl draft so i think for him to be the notre dame jalen smith this soon removed from the injury i think that's just too unrealistic i've resigned myself to the fact that jalen smith is never going to be notre dame zealand smith and a lot of it has to do with the injury itself but even more of it has to do with the fact that when you move from college to the nfl the game changes it's a faster game you're dealing with guys who are the best of the best and not having two years right out of the gate to learn and develop just because he wasn't physically able to i think that's stunts his nfl growth way more than even just the physicality of the injury does.
