Patrick Mahomes agrees 10-year deal with Chiefs worth $503m
"One of the huge headlines this week was the decade long contract that Patrick Mahomes lands in Kansas City. Will we see a ripple effect from that? Will that affect a deal for Dak Prescott? ESPN is Jeff Darlington. Will you know what? In some circumstances, I could have seen Mahomes getting a contract and maybe influencing the Doc Prescott deal, But the way it worked out, it actually won't know. I had spoken to some people before the homes got his deal done, And they implied that it Patrick Mahomes is in a little bit of a different air, No matter what. Um, Any quarterback that was coming up on his contract was not going to be able to demand that kind of money. The other situation here is that The home's ended up doing a 10 year deal. The contention between Dak Prescott the Cowboys the deck once less years, then the Cowboys willing TTO. Do they want to get five years? Dad wants to get four years. As a result, I think that the better calm pier is not Patrick Mahomes, but it's still Kirk cousins from a few years ago. Prescott now basically threatening to plan to the franchise tag and saying, If you don't pay me now, my price is only going to go higher. So this week will be very interesting. I still contend they going to get something done by July 15th. We'll have to wait and see those relationships take time, though. Nobody is patients in the NFL's. So what are you hearing about the relationship between deck and his new head coach Mike McCarthy. Look, everybody sees this as being really an ideal relationship. Personality wise, they really do meld quite nicely together, Doc, one of the most likeable one of the most enjoyable people to be around Like McCarthy, also the type of guy you can come in there and really work with Jack to a degree. Actually, I know the Cowboys fans don't want to hear this. But the relationship that Jason Garrett had with Jack I don't think it'll be that much different between these guys. And that actually is a good thing despite the outcome of Jason Garrett success, so Ah, lot of people expect this to be a really good relationship. I could, by the way, seeing This relationship prosper this year to the point where Doc next year winds up if he doesn't sign the deal now signs it later so that he can keep that marriage with McCarthy going

"No no that's fine. Because I you got me thinking about props in the the Super Bowl I got very excited again about life. Unfortunately unfortunately we come back to reality. Nobody in that reality has me sitting in a situation. Where now Jason Garrett employed employed by the New York giants my first thought was? I didn't have I thought I'll tell you exactly. I know exactly where I was sitting at my desk a little bit of work and I think we're getting. This was on Friday when the news broke that accurate. Yes getting ready to go Go ahead out. I think to the kids soccer practice or something in this news breaks and I just start. Seeing in white I legitimately was physically affected by this because on one hand this is exactly what the Kramer FM FM L. Tour was created for. It does seem like it's going on a bit too long. I didn't it was supposed to only be a three day. Cruise but the Kerber. FM L. Tour can't lost it. See it's it's now been going on. I think was that the start date when they got their ass kicked by the packers in the playoffs a few years back it really was it. It started with the tracing back to that well and it's almost like the rolling stones who they like. This is our last tour ever but they just keep extending the tour you're keeps going on and on and on well and this is a major stop. This is not like a night in P- poughkeepsie. This is a festival level Frye festival maybe aby level stop on the tour. Here's how I would somewhat my thoughts on this when this happened. I was trying to figure out a way to cope with it. We try to look at the audience and I I. I looked at the children. I'm like girls you wouldn't believe this. The giants just hired the former head coach of the Dallas cowboys to be their their offensive coach. And we actually had a great tweet from contributor Billie holiday saying saying that they must whoever's running the giants organization must be listening to the podcast book because he's he's a great character to the show. You may have. We AH almost would have had to get rid of the shine box. Drop but no he lives on and he lives on. He's back. We thought we were going to get rid of them and back. What got it do baby?.

"The giant sad to go out and get Marc Colombo but on the subject of that it was Bill Callahan. who kind of helped put together the final pieces for the cowboys to build their offensive line as we currently no it He was the team's offensive line coach and offensive coordinator in two thousand fourteen was his final season with the team and that that was Zack Martin's rookie year. And obviously the cowboys won the division and beat the lines in the playoffs And you know that that season the play calling kind of transition transition from Bill Callahan to what was then the cowboys passing game coordinator Scotland a hand. You have to go way back to when cowboys fans were were wanting Scotland a hand and to have control and I think that transition you know just kind of going from Bill Callahan to Scotland a hint in the middle of the season. You know made for some awkwardness. And that's that's why I think it's it's interesting to see that he would want to be on a staff that that feature Jason Garrett let alone featured Gary Raw as his superior but apparently that seems possible and I again both those. Those gentlemen served is huge Members of the cowboys staff in orchestrating imprint. Together the offensive line as cowboys fans. Currently no it so I think you know netting either. One would be a huge boost for the likes of Willow Hernandez and whoever's able to join him all right. Rj last question for you. I would be remiss if we didn't talk about about your cowboys. And and your new head coach right. You mentioned Mike McCarthy. Just your thoughts on on McCarthy as he as he takes the reins in Dallas. Were you surprised by that hire. Are you liked that hire. You hate that hire you know what are your. What are your feelings on that? At this point I think the only thing that kind of copy will by surprise was how quickly cle- It all materialized. you know it was. It was when the eagles loss which I think we can both appreciate during that game. That word finally officially broke the cowboys. cowie's would not be retaining Jason Garrett in you know fifteen hours later you know reports swirling that they were set to hire Mike McCarthy and so you know I think everybody he was just confused. I mean you know Jason Curtis I mentioned was promoted from interim head coach full time in two thousand and ten so the last and that was really obvious everybody knew he was going to get the job so I'll ask true time. The cavs conducted a coaching search was in two thousand and seven when bill parcells retired and they ultimately hydrate Phillips. And so I think everybody was just kind of of the mindset. You know. It's the first time doing this in over a decade you're not GonNa take your time But the cowboys really fell in love with Mike McCarthy and I think there's there's a lot to like you know his his PR tour. He went on. I think really helped. And he he said the word analytics a few times which parks in people's ears. And I think that you know Mike McCarthy's who the cowboys need. I think we would both agree that as a head coach. He's you know at the very least some improvement over Jason Garrett. I mean the guy's super bowl and I mean you know cowboys fans don't like this but the reality is Jason Garrett was almost enough you know he he really was. I mean three different times. He was almost enough to get them to the NFC championship game. which is the weekend that were speaking and so theoretically if he was almost enough? And you'll get somebody buddy who was at worst marginally better. I mean that should be enough. I think the cowboys have a very talented roster and they need a they need somebody who's been there who's done net to kind of bring them them together and get them over the Hump and I do think Mike McCarthy could be that guy and I think this was an interesting coaching cycle and you have a new head. Coach is obviously obviously but I think the giants a different place in the car. Which is why Joe Judge made sense for that but I think the cowboys you know? They're on the third leg of the relay. Okay so they need a four data hand the baton off to as opposed to somebody to kind of started off them. That's an interesting way to put it. Rj well we will see how it all works out. Obviously there's a new coach in Washington as well so the the NFC Easter should Should be an interesting place as always in twenty twenty and you and I am sure we'll talk again so thank you very much for joining me today. Of course Happy New Year. Twenty twenty dollars listeners. I hope you all experience wins Health and success But I hope that your draft class just aren't great football players. That's all we really want from. You guys had had to go there didn't Ya R._J.. All right thank you for listening giants fans and we'll talk to you soon bye bye..

"All right giants. Hi It's fans Ed Valentine back here on Valentine's views podcast and we're talking with RJ o of SP nations blogging. The boys about the giants Ryan's decision to bring former Dallas coach Jason Garrett on as offensive coordinator R. J. obviously four the the giants. The big thing at this point for them really is the development of of Daniel Jones. Second Year quarterback and it's kind of interesting because of the giants said that Jones developed nicely as a rookie that he had a good rookie year. And yet when you look at it he will enter two thousand twenty twenty with an entirely new coaching staff on the offensive side of the ball. New head coach. New Coordinator New quarterbacks coach just your thoughts this quickly on on what Jason Garrett can bring for Daniel Jones or I think Jason Garrett has an absolute strength working with young quarterbacks specifically Tony Romo emerged in two thousand six coincidentally against the giants and You know took. The cowboys helped the playoffs that season in the wildcard round the bobble game that everybody remembers but two thousand seven was Tony. Romo's first full season as a starter and Our I should mention Jason Garrett's first year working within that was the year he joined the cowboys staff and I mean the two thousand seven cowboys Which I know is a great subject for any giants Fan You know set. All sorts of franchise offensive records. I was one of the most prolific offenses at the Dallas Cowboys Organization Ever Pat. And that was when a young Jason Garrett was regarded you know people forget but the way that Sean mcvay kind of has been the way they're killing more has been and now Dak Prescott first year under Jason. Go Twenty sixteen while individually. He didn't necessarily. You're not setting the incredible records or anything. He did You know get get things done in a different way you know. It wasn't Aaron the ball out you know and high volumes. But I mean he was an offensive weapon in a way that Dak Prescott is and that was something that Jason Jason Gird oversaw. And so I think that he has an incredible ability to work with young quarterbacks and I I think it's it's worth saying that people have have noted that chasing its biggest flaws generally have been game day execution in terms of being a head coach. And so I think when when those responsibilities were stripped tipped away when all he has to worry about is his department. Where in this case is the quarterback? I think that I would expect a lot of results I really would. And I honestly we believe that Daniel Jones is perhaps the most Jason Garrett quarterback that there is i. I do think that's going to be a very interesting pairing. So you have to tell us a little bit more about why you about why you say that about why you say that that Jones is a Jason Garrett type quarterback why first of I think in in personality and in disposition you know I I mentioned that Jason Gird is very robotic And you know to your point deal you know dealt with at least a a lot of criticism as the Dallas cowboys coach. I think they're being. The quarterback of the giants is a similar job. And I think the Daniel Jones kind of has that same sort of personality kind kind of just shows up. Does this thing and seemingly unfazed by you know anything I mean Daniel Jones dealt with more flack than any rookie quarterback in recent memory. And so I think that they mesh well in that regard but I also think that you know I. I think that Jason Greg Did a Great Job Coaching Dak Prescott but I do think that he is is more or comfortable just because you know. He's an older principal based Sort of coach. I think he's more comfortable with with more classic pocket quarterback than I know Daniel Jones certainly has an ability to move around but I just think his traits and his history and and his football life. Really you know vibe with Jason Gear. You Obviously Danielle Jones evolved under David Cliff. And that's that's like a Jason Garrett thing had a no You know another way to put it just kind and you ever you ever cook in. You know what I mean. And you're like I think I think some peppery go good here. That's kind of how it feels. You're not just feels like something that would would go great together so it'll be interesting to watch. So let's talk a little bit about Jason Garrett you know offensive play caller offensive scheme designer his system quote unquote and he hasn't been a play caller. I think since two thousand and twelve at least full-time is concerned. I I guess it's considered Air Corps Yell it's considered more vertical then the sort of more horizontal more quick throw based stuff that that we've seen seen from the giants under both Ben mcadoo and Pat Shurmur. Just tell us a little bit about what we might expect you know from From Jason Garrett offense. I think that that's well. Put the Air Koryo. Offense Is without question a huge inspiration for how he sees his football ball world. And I you know. I don't know that until recently when when the cowboys acquired Amari Cooper and drafted Michael Gob. I don't know that Jason Garrett ever had the proper toys I mean. I think he always had quarterbacks capable of getting it done. But you know Jason witten capable of running vertically. How not incredibly far but Other than that. I mean you know the cowboys dealt with you. Know they had T. O.. Early on inch Mason guys offensive career with them. You know kind of a bigger body receiver and a guy I who can win across the middle and then they had Dez Bryant who You know patented Kinda the back shoulder throw with Tony Romo and that was the most vertical I think you know the desert he. It wasn't this advanced route runner by any means. And so I certainly think that Sterling Shepard any order Slayton was was fascinating to watch and Ingram are tools and toys that Jason chasing girls can use in those capacities. And I think more than anything though. I think you should expect balance. And I think that Jason Garrett is you know very excited obviously to to go from. Zeke Elliott saquon Barkley. I think many would say. That's an upgrade However I don't know that the giants offensive line is is ready to be what Jason Garrett needs needs? I mean obviously the cavs had one of the better offensive lines in the NFL over the last half decade. And I mean that that is an essential tool I mean that it really is an essential piece to which I mean. It's an essential piece. Everybody wants to do but he truly wants to be as balanced as possible in attack In in style and so is vertical as he gets he also wants to run the ball In in a way he appreciates history and I think that that bleeds over into how he wants to literally play the game and so i. I'm not trying to say that he's GonNa run the ball but he's he's not going to be. This erred out all all the time guy. So I think that there will be a lot of Again anion that is actually one of the things that Joe Judge has talked about one of the the things that that I've always admired about the new England. Patriots is the idea that that they aren't married to one way of doing things to one to basically bringing the same game plan the same scheme the same the same plan of attack weekend and week out that that things change means and Joe Jr his talked about that a lot. Whether it's you know whether we have to run the ball a lot one week where we have to throw it another week and I think that's you know that's something it sounds like like like Jason Garrett as play caller might be flexible enough to To do that. Yeah and I think he's evolved over time. I think he's become flexible and I think he's I think he's learned. I think he's grown and adapted like everybody does is life and so. I think that there are core principles to his offensive philosophy but I do think that he's capable of adjusting to different times. I tell you what I mean. I am very excited personally to see what he does with. Evan Ingram Have some Evan Ingraham. Shares in some dynasty leagues so might be a little bit too personally invested rested. But I mean it's been a long time since Jason Garrett had a dynamic you know kind of playmaking tight end I mean no disrespect Jason Win but I think that that singular peace can be you quite valuable for him. It's interesting because I have said for years when the giants when the giants drafted Evan Ingram was back back in the Ben mcadoo era as head coach. mcadoo at the at the press conference when they drafted Evan Ingram he said you know he said the shortest artist distance to the end zone is straight up the middle of the field you know meaning you know run the same route get the tight end right up. The middle of the field and weirdly macadear never used ingram that way. Neither did Pat Shurmur as you take. One of the speediest tight ends in football. When he's healthy he wanted to the the biggest match up nightmares? In the League from the tight end position and running horizontally and I never understood. Dude it sounds like you think that Garrett might look Ingram and and try to get him up to field a little bit more often. Yeah I think so and I think you analogy Jason Garrett Have Evan Ingram is one thing but the had them with you know I think the giants are in an interesting place overall Daniel Jones in you know and again I mean you now. I have great respect. Eli Manning but to have a quarterback who's who's capable of executing play action and being athletic and moving in adjusting and adapting. I think got it. I think it could be really fun. I think Daniel Jones and Ed Ingraham in general could be done in two thousand twenty but I think Jason Gert might might be the guy that's capable of kind of leaning into that interesting interesting. Well we will see how all of that plays out. I know everybody's A lot of giants fans are are sort of their leery eerie of Jason Garrett and I think part of that is simply because they've been rooting against Jason Garrett in in the Dallas cowboys for thirteen years. Now and snickered at some of the decisions that he's made in all of that so but but as I tell people they just have to let that go and see how this plays out. Yeah I mean There's no question that Jason Garrett has a very checkered past against this franchise as a coach and I mean I you you know. It's it's interesting to look at Michael McCarthy being the cowboys head coach now because you know I think a lot of ways you know Mike McCarthy kind it helped get himself to this point outside of his his dissolution the packers I mean it was. Mike McCarthy's packers that You know dealt the final loss to wade phillips you you know as the cowboys head coach. It was after losing forty five seven of them that the cowboys fired Wade and promoted Garrett and then he ultimately got the job and then Jason Grits. I win actually came on the road. in his new home. I've although I think that was the old meadowlands and then you know Mike McCarthy's packers beat the couch twice in the playoffs and challenges. Is the desk catches is. You don't remember. So I think they are mystically aligned in that way but I also think Jason Gertz been mystically aligned to the giants I mean obviously I mentioned two thousand seven The cow the cow was worse losses in recent memory. was against the giants and then four years later. We've talked about this. You and I the loss at home. It's into stadium. The Jason Pierre Paul blocked field goal and then a few weeks later on the road on. I think that was new year's day the Johnson Garrett has has. I think a lot of kind of like Mike McCarthy. I think the giants have helped get Jason Garrett to themselves by beating him so often and it's always it's interesting when people stay in house like in division. I'm excited or interested to see what potential assistance. Jason could take with him. Yeah that'll be interesting and I suppose supposed since you mentioned it the one that I I think you and I talked about a little bit off. Line Recently let me ask you about Mark Colombo Combo on the offensive line coach because that's a position that's a real key for the giants at this point one they haven't filled yet Let me let me ask you about Bill Callahan. As well since. That's the other name that that keeps coming up the question with Callahan that I have is is you know what is your thought really on the relationship between Garrett and Callahan. Because there's been some questions about that and also as I said your thoughts on unmarked Colombo if he actually emerges as a candidate while Marc Colombo played for the cowboys. Anybody that's unaware and kind of grew up in that that organization and you know joined the offensive staff you know in on a lower level and then as an assistant and then in two thousand eighteen When when the cowboys reached their bye week the week they traded for MRI Cooper? They also fired. Paul Alexander and promoted Colombo and instantly. You know experience a lot success along the offensive line. Many people attributed this to He was he was so you know so little removed from having played himself the players. I really liked Marc Colombo and and just kind of did things their way. I don't mean that. He was a pushover. He he just identified more with them and was able to kind of speak. The same language operate the same way march to the same be in so That's that's been something you know that the the cowboys fans I think have been really not not bothered but you know really a little bit bum to see Mike McCarthy not retain Mark Columbus so. I think that that is a great way to start improving your offensive line this year..

"Be talking a lot about Jason Garrett About The New York giants coaching staff about a lot of the changes going on in the NFC east and in here to help me break all of that down someone who is very very familiar with the work of of Jason Garrett that would be RJ Ocho of SP nations Dallas cowboys website blogging. The boys are Jay. Thanks for coming on of course anytime. Congratulations on having Jason Garrett. Yeah while I I'm not quite sure you mean that but we will. We will get into that. You know the as we record this. It's Sunday morning and and you and I were kind of kidding each other off air. We're sort of two lonely bachelors for the weekend end. Our our wives are both away. We're sort of filling time here by by talking to each other. Yeah I I gotta be honest if when my wife plans to retreat. When she told me I say you know if I can get to talk to ed it will be a good weekend you know? That's that's the goal so I sit here having achieved that and there's really nothing else left for me to do. Hey there you go. My my wife is off. My wife is off visiting my my granddaughter and my son they live about four and a half five hours away from US and and I'm here because I get to dog sit Good for you see. I've got the dog too. So we're literally in the same boat I think he's He might be chewing on the carpet at this particular moment. So I if I have to order a new one on Amazon. It's it's because of this dog. You're ordering a new dog Amazon. John You know they have free today. So we'll see what they can do. Yeah my my dog. My dog is is not my friend right now because my dog woke me up at quarter four in the morning the other day so so he and I are not on good terms right now. Goodness that is That's a rough life. Yeah but but anyway R.. J. Let's let's let's talk giants. Let's Talk Jason Garrett. I really don't think that that this was any big surprise. In the end that the giants hired Jason Garrett on just you know your your initial thoughts first of all I suppose we should back up your initial thoughts on Jason Garrett a a no longer being head coach of your Dallas Cowboys and then be on on being the offensive coordinator for the giants nights. I've been fortunate through my career and I know you've had a lot of similar opportunities. I've been fortunate to be around Jason Jason Garrett at different times and I think it's important to note and I. I think I would be doing him a disservice if I didn't know at the top that he's an upstanding person and I know that There are people who roll their eyes at that and they only care about football and on the field and whatnot. But the guy you see and everybody sees the clapping thing and it's so old and tired and everybody sees the same answers and this robotic persona that he displays to the world. But you know behind all of that. He really is an incredibly charming and charismatic person. And when you experienced that you know you are kind of you kind of you know pinchers. Obviously there's is this really is the same guy and so he. There's a lot to like about him and I know we've spoken before here on your show. I I had had to sort of characterize Jason Gertz redeeming quality and and his quality that's sort of transpired across his entire tenure. It's did his players truly love loved him and I know that that also sounds it. Sounds lame and nobody wants to hear that but You know we've spoken at times. You know the cowboys up until this last season They never lost the game where you know everything was going bad. You know everything went wrong and they lost a really bad game or this or that. You know this drama. Whatever happened off the field? They never responded to that by totally quitting. They always always always fought back back in one and and I think a recent example everybody knows last season they lost their at metlife to the jets and that was a long week that was third loss in a row after they had started off three now and they came back and they beat the crap out of the eagles the following Sunday and that. That's Kinda who Jason Jason Grids Cowboys got knocked down for a second. You know you mentioned. We're talking Sunday morning the morning after After the fight they weren't that cowboy you. You know what I mean that just got knocked down and left and they always got up and always you know. He loved to talk about scratching and clawing and finding whatnot and they always did that. And I I think ultimately that just kind of exhausted itself. I think we saw that finally end when they lost to the buffalo bills on thanksgiving. You know that was is one of those lows and okay. You know they're going to they're going to bounce back. That's that's who Garrett's cowboys are. They went out seven days later and they lost on the road the banners and you know they really really for the first time in a decade had quit and I think it was just you know it was just time for a change. I think we've all experienced that. There isn't a soul all among the cowboys. Who would speak ill of him and I think you know this is a weird way to talk about an ending in sports but he really did give it his all? He really tried very hard and it just. It wasn't enough and you mentioned that. It was a little predictable that he would end up back with the giants. I I'm shocked. It took this long. But you know Jason Go as much as he is a cowboy. He is a giant. He has spoken at many times about how playing for the giants and that organization really shaped him he. He has spoken about having played there during September eleventh and how living in New York at that time was very impact on his life. As as I'm sure is the case for many any New Yorkers and in many listeners of your podcast and so he's a very sentimental person I think there's something else and so the giants I am told a very special place in his heart so it made sense for him to return at some point in so as weird as it sounds. I think a lot of cowboys fans are truly happy for him. I think think he deserves like everyone does define happiness and peace and joy and the giants. If it can't be the cowboys I think are a team that can ultimately help. They're interesting R.. J. We're talking peace and happiness joy here on the Valentine's views podcast sometimes. That's what's necessary there. You go so you know I have looked at at the higher of the offensive coordinator at the higher of Jason Garrett and everybody wants to know well what kind of play caller is he in in in this and that and what kind of offensive system does he run and and I wrote it Big Blue View on Sunday morning that for me not the kind of offense he runs in the play calling and all of that is is really just a small part of the job Bob that I think the giants are bringing him to New York to do. The giants hired a thirty eight year old first time. NFL head coach. First Time time head coach anywhere and for me. I look at it like I think it's a lot of the other things that Jason Garrett brings to the table able as to as to why he could really be a benefit to this giant staff. Now I think that that's That's extremely well said and extremely well put Jason Jared. I'm sure you'll quickly learn believes in finding the right kind of guys that's you know that's his Mo and He his Sir you know people have said forever couch said that he would make an incredible. CEO of any business. I mean and I truly believe that He is an inordinate leader of men. And you know I. I do think that's rare. I think there's a lot of those in sports into the game of football. Certainly but Jason Garrett is very very good at that and I think that's why you know people well don't quit on him and so I think that that sort of pairing makes sense and I think you know the ECHINACEA takes a really humble person to do what Jason Gertz doing. Because I was thinking. How often do you see somebody who's been a head coach for almost a decade you know resort to being a coordinator I hate to call it a resort but the last one I was thinking about was Gary Gary Kubiak and it's not rare earth is very rare and so I think that that certainly makes sense and I know that you know and I say this in all seriousness in in in no no jive here? I know that the giants organization has experienced some struggles in the culture department in recent memory. And if there's any coach uh-huh out there that was available that can fix that. I absolutely unequivocally believe that. It's Jason Geared. I think he would have made sense to be the head coach in Washington Washington. Because they're sort of you know way more in need of that than the giants are but I think for for a young and impressionable and nucleus of players that the giants have. I think that the Jason Garrett is is kind of exactly what they need assuming Joe Judge you know is a fine and you know capable head coach in his own right to your point interesting interesting. Rj Excuse me excuse me still getting over a little a little cough here but I look at Jason Garrett and another thing that I wrote the Big Blue View today is when we talk about the things that he can bring to New York. I look at the Dallas Cowboys head. Coaching job. In the way did I put it is for me. It might be the most difficult job in the NFL simply because of the owner that you have in his his his heavy involvement his high profile his incredibly high expectations not to mention the the national profile profile of of the franchise the media and fan base expectations. And I look at that if you're bringing him in to. I'm to help a rookie head coach. It to to navigate sort of the waters of of New York New Jersey of of of this market in and of what it is to be a head coach. I don't know if you could have brought in a guy that had better preparation for that kind of role I absolutely agree with that It is not easy to be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. And I do think that that job has become easier over the last decade and I think you know it's certainly worth mentioning that You know twitter and instagram and the social world as we know it heck even explanation. I was not the same place in two thousand eleven When Jason Kerr took over as it is today here in two thousand twenty a lot of the world in in the way information is consumed consumed has changed very very quickly in the time that Jason Guard held that job? And so I I mean I think that Jason Garrett over Time Time Warner Down Jerry Jones and that's a really bad way to put it but I mean to the point that he he had significant say in things you know. Everybody thinks that that job is just a puppets job and whatever and look again. It is very difficult. But I do think that Jason Garrett Trailblazer in a lot of ways for for the men that would follow him or women even though what fallen whatever that would ultimately coach for the Dallas Cowboys. Because you know he he found I think he was. He was close enough to Jerry. Jones To be able to do things to be able to push into be able to prod and you know get a say and whatever and I think you know. One of the biggest examples is one of the biggest moments in franchise history. I mean Jason Garrett was critical and I know this is a place the giants or at although maybe not as awkwardly in the transition from Tony Romo to Dak Prescott. I got you know that feels like so long ago but Jason Garrett oversaw that and helped the team win thirteen games in the process. Rj want to take a quick break here for a word from our SP SPE- nation sponsors. Than I wanNA come back and talk a little bit about what Jason Garrett can do for Daniel Jones. What kind of offense We might we might see the schematically and a little bit about your Dallas Cowboys and Mike McCarthy.
Jason Garrett joins Giants as new offensive coordinator
"Yeah I got a new job Jerry Jones is right he told us that Jason Garrett will be coaching in the NFL come next season and in fact he will be doing just that he's been hired by Joe judge and the New York Giants to be there all offensive coordinator we had a great day together you know you know I didn't know Joe real well been around about a couple different occasions I good conversations with them really good football conversations and now he and I know a lot of the same people I work for coach saving you work for coach David coaches always said such great things about Jo and so many other people that he's been around that I've been around said the same thing Jason Garrett on the giants in the huddle podcast and he was eager to make comments right away I'm happy for him I think as much as the Dallas Cowboys needed a fresh start and they're thrilled about their new head coach Mike McCarthy Jason Garrett needed something fresh and new as well I I tease the bunch up before that the cowboys actually made the announcement but my hash tag was free Jason Garrett let him go do something else let him go work in a different capacity although it is interesting right that he stays in the NFC east I thought the board to be really humorous why the giants though that was the question that he was that's right off the top just a first class organization and you you think about the history and tradition the New York Giants franchise in and what the merits of build the what the tissues of bill and all the great teams all the great coaches all the great players will get a part of this organization throughout its history and you know when you're playing this organization like I was four years you feel that Jason Garrett the new offense of coordinator who gets to work with none other than Daniel Jones interesting to hear what giants fans think about having chasing gear at again with inside the organization now jump to their often through coordinator spot where he was so maligned even after callin more to go over the plate calling full painting all the often whoa that lets is beyond as the the Dallas Cowboys had a really good off into season that was not the reason why they didn't end up by winning the end of season getting back to the playoffs in the stats for Jack NZ Kelly it don't tell you the whole story but their office of numbers were better than a good portion of what we saw from the yeah the rest of the NFL Jack was over four thousand yards as the Ellie and continues to do what it is that he's paid to do and yet still a lot of people pointing to Jason Garrett because the often didn't do enough well now here is going to be working with the second year quarterback in New York in Daniel Jones I want to start by and really what Joe said and in its introductory press conference you know I have an outsider's perspective on the giant a great respect for the organization great respect for the players on the team that would compete against but again it's it's coming from the outside I can't wait to get on the inside and and start to work with some of these guys and you know you mentioned Daniel Jones we thought a lot of coming out of college we weren't in the market for a quarterback it in the first round the year that he came out at the same time you go through that evaluation process and you know anybody who was around him in our organization with the cowboys just thought the world of does it sound excited I mean for sure most of the questions that he's been answering over the past few months a bit about his job status and about why the cowboys were under achieving but still he felt rejuvenated yes like he's really looking forward to this
"jason garrett" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"Just look for the podcast feed on on all apple devices than and whatnot. But I've got that going on and then My wife side of town and so it's just me and the Bayer boy puppy this this fine Saturday. So we're going to watch the a fight later on Saturday night pretty pumped about that But before then GonNa get some errands done and whatnot. You know First Saturday in a while. We need to do some errands. You know how it is but Help your Saturday's going. Great wanted to make sure you had some cowboys talk going on in your life Friday was a fairly. You know everything going on in the world of sports these days has to do with Major League Baseball and the Houston Astros and whatnot. So things have kinda quieted down across the NFL. Which is crazy considering the conference championships tomorrow but the cowboys had had to sort of a bit of news items happen on Friday afternoon slash evening the first one I I don't WanNa make it sound like it's not a big deal but I it? It's not as big of a deal. It's the second one Adam Henry officially as official as it can get without Mike McCarthy officially officially announcing that Adam Henry hired hired as the cowboys wide receivers coach cowboys obviously moved on from Sanjay Lal as we talked about Adam. Henry has familiarity with Odell Beckham junior to a great degree. WHO's in the news for a lot of reasons? We'll just leave it at that obviously worked with Odell with the New York. Giants has worked with Odell and Jarvis Landry both with the Cleveland browns rounds in back at Lsu and so Adam Henry has some familiarity working with some elite receivers in you know. Obviously he's got Michael Gallup and we'll see what happens with the Mario Cooper Randall. COBB and whatnot. What not but I think we all expect Amari to be back and hope Randall. COBB is back so ultimately good news. Good news get new coaches everything getting ready getting going. It's almost senior bowl time so I'll have some fun. Draft related things to get into his next week. Sort of rolls along. Remember by the way that not this coming coming Monday but the following Monday I forget what day that is. I'm going to look that up literally Wa recording because that's how I roll the twenty seventh From the twenty seven th which is Monday through the thirty first which is Friday. I'LL BE RADIO ROW in Miami with espy nation with Jeanette Thomas and Pete Sweeney depending on what happens with the Kansas City chiefs. Pete runs our Kansas City chiefs site at espionage aero had pride WE'LL BE ON RADIO ROW IF HE SOMEHOW MISSED IT. We've been talking about it. Just kind of you know going to be recording podcast with tons of guests Having Fun getting a bunch of interviews and whatnot so we'll post the ones that make sense here on the beat to beat podcast feed will post them all. Throughout all of our estimation podcast feeds. It's an all over the network just depending who the guest is but I. We're not exactly sure how I'll definitely find a hub at divorced worst case scenario it just so you're aware and I'll remind you again. Is the days get closer. I'll tweet out every interview. So hypothetically we interviewed. I don't know Victor Cruz right officer. That might not make a lot of sense to use a cowboys fan. But I'll tweet it out you know and if you WANNA listen you can check that out. smick follow me on twitter and instagram. I'll get all the links and everything there at our Geo show on both so that will be fun. But Victor Cruz played for the New York. Giants and I promise I did not set that up on purpose. It was completely accidental. The New York giants are unimportant topic right now. Because on Friday evening as I finished up the blitz on ESPN San Antonio it was reported by ESPN. I Jason Garrett is the new offensive coordinator for the New York giants. That's right Jason Garrett the former former Dallas cowboys head coach. It's now the offensive coordinator for their division rivals. The New York giants He is said to be Joe. Judge I your head coach. First Time head coach judges set to be his his new offensive coordinator in the Big Apple. And there's a lot to this. You know honestly this is fascinating fascinating fascinating for a number of reasons I think look. I think we should all hope that Jason Gert succeeds right and I know that you're going to say no I don't want to succeed these division division rival etc.. Jason gets a great guy and an awesome person and I hope you find success at everything he does in life. He certainly gave being the cowboys head coach. His all and ultimately things did not materialize. But those two games a year are going to be fascinating and you know this is just another link between the cowboys and giants obviously Two franchises franchises very much connected over. Its tenure in Dallas both as the offensive coordinator which he wants more and as head coach in I I mean this is just. It's crazy Joe. Judge Look he's a younger head. Coach is under forty years old. Jason Garrett's obviously had a lot of experience of being an NFL head coach. So it makes sense kind of you know we talked opt about you. Know how Charles Robinson reported that. He talked about himself when he was on the show. You know how had the cowboys gone in a direction where they had hired say Lincoln Riley instead of Mike McCarthy in might have made sense to pair him with a season to defensive coordinator. You know somebody who'd been there who done who'd soon. Who knows what being head coaches like and Jason Gareth kind of that for Joe? Judge judge granted judge not as young as a hypothetical like Lincoln Riley. Or whatever. This is fascinating I tell you what because the giants they have a lot of interesting offense of pieces. He says a lot of young pieces Daniel Jones. Who is maybe the most Jason Garrett quarterback there is SAQUON Barkley goes without saying sterling. Shepard Dairy Slayton of core four seven. Ingram I mean. There's a lot to like on that giants offense in Jason. I mean I don. I know that everyone's GonNa Laugh. But if Jason Garrett can make the the giants offense legitimate or a leader however far you want to go in this hypothetical blogging boys might burn down. I mean if if you know let let's let's say you know let's be random and say that Jason Gertz giants beat the cowboys like fifty one seven or something that will be that might end. I mean you know what I'm saying to and we when we I wrote about this for bt and one of our top common said you know be careful what you wish for because you just got it and everybody buddy is laughing and getting their jokes often saying you know all this is going to be awesome. Jason Great is going to be predictable is going to be stale etc.. The giants are going to suck. I mean just watch out now you know and for what it's worth. I was trying to think about this and as far as my memory is concerned I believe the last time Jason gearhead a hand in play calling was two thousand and thirteen maybe two thousand twelve and when you consider that we're in the year two thousand twenty that's pretty crazy. I mean in two thousand thirteen. It was kind of Bill Callahan. Running the show in that department and then the transition Scotland a hint sort of took over in two thousand fourteen. That's when everybody was in love with Lenihan and And then obviously when when that sort of fell apart a year ago The cowboys moved on to Kellen Moore. And so it's been a while. I mean you know so. Many people have talked about that. It had for so long. been a mystery as to what Jason Garrett did on Game Day you just never knew in so it will be interesting to watch him. Coordinate offense call plays presumably. That's what he's going to do with the G.. Men and I mean I'm sure you're familiar. But Jason Garrett has a history with the giants played for for them just like you did. The cowboys obviously has ties the Newark area. He was a member of the giants in the early two thousands and I mean so. He's kind of back home home in some ways I mean obviously the cowboys are true. Home but He's not unfamiliar with the giants. And you know if you have seen an EPA Jason You know that he has said the Dallas football cowboys you know multiple times. I mean that's that's the giants thing right there. The New York football giants. And so it's it's GonNa be very interesting to see how this unfolds at the very least we're in for quite the show quite the level of entertainment so WHO KNOWS BUT I? I do think it's worth mentioning Here on the PODCAST Joe Judge obviously is the New York giants head coach and end The New York giants released some comments from Joe Judge in the aftermath of naming. Jason Curtis is offensive coordinator so this is from their official website. The official missile teams website. I've known I'm reading this word for word. I tweeted this exact screen-grabbed at if you want to go check it out on my twitter I've known about Jason for a long time not only through the general public as well known as he is as head coach. The cowboys judge said there were guys I worked with that. I came across in my career at both Alabama and at the New England patriots. That worked with Jason through their time in Miami with him they consistently all reflect on how smart he is. How great a teacher? He is and how his perspective. The game was through a different Lens than most coaches and when when he sees it he's able to communicate it and paint that mental image to the players and he does a fantastic job of making in game adjustments. What anyway Continuing on we had some great conversations and we were able to bring him in here. Judge said it was a great it opportunity to get to know each other a little better than we had before it was a great opportunity to sit there and top ball and share philosophies and views on the game. It's a great system Tom. He brings with great teaching that will allow players to go out there and play aggressively now. Look I'm not trying to you. You know just pick Jason Garrett. I do think that he did some legitimate things during his time with the Dallas Cowboys and he certainly was a fantastic offensive coordinator when he first took on on that role. Now thirteen years ago but I mean in game adjustments playing aggressively. Those aren't really qualities. I would personally finally assigned to the cowboys over the last few years. So maybe Joe Judge got a different interpretation but either way this will be very fascinating Whatever you got going on this Saturday Saturday? Hope it's wonderful. Hope it's incredible hope. It's exactly what you've been dreaming of and I hope you have.

Analytics in the NFL
"Going to talk about these Brown the whole topic of analytics because Mike when you think of mate Alexi often think about major league baseball. And you know Bill James's cyber metric revolution. Should Billy Bean moneyball the book movie all the rest of it and wanted Billy Bean's main guys was Paul D Badescu. CUPID ESTA LA. Believe in the as he goes the mets eventually. Now he's with the Cleveland Browns. Tired and twice sixteen says famously. I don't know too much NFL. But I've got all this information all this analytics we'll make things work also infamous said he didn't think Carson Wentz was the top twenty quarterback now now as we look at your column today. Athletic is always. You can subscribe the athletic read. All Mike's work there the war between analytics and football people is pointless. The real challenge is finding someone who can properly understanding process all the data and then make the right decisions and how to deploy and I'm not sure. The browns have solved that problem yet. They hire Kevin Stansky is their head coach. Why why are you skeptical at? They've solved it. You know I like Kevin and I and I don't mean to be critical Kevin. But I think Kevin's a really smart guy. And I think Kevin's obviously you know well. Educated aided came through the coaching ranks. The right way started on the ground floor worked his way up. I just think it's going to be a real challenging job for him because he's got to manage a lot of personalities in that locker room and deep. Pesto said at the press conference that they were looking for a leader. And you know. And I think that Kevin's probably more of a guy who's low key. Quiet it you know has a shared vision with everybody and that doesn't mean he's not qualified. That just means to me I think the vision of what the browns think they need. And what what. I see the browns needing in terms of somebody to come in and be able to handle Odell Beckham because look like Odell Beckham. The little like Michael Jackson Right. I mean he's is not compliant right he will show up on time. He'll do what he has to do right but the one thing he will do is he will create people following him he will create and so what he doesn't come to. Ot Days where he doesn't want to do things or he wants to go out. Color outside the lines dominic does he. Will you know get the people follow him. And who's going to challenge him to do that. Who's going to challenge him to do that? You know and I thought it was funny. Ad When you know they asked Stefanski Gi you know what did Mayfield think of you like. I'm not really worried. Would Baker Mayfield thinks of me. I'm worried about what I think. Baker Mayfield Shinto like I don't have to make Baker Mayfield Happy Baker Mayfield to make me happy. And I think you can look at all these analytical numbers and it's great but at some point football's a game a leadership. Football's the game of toughness. Football's a game paddle. Football's a game of conditioning. Football's a game of making people do things they really don't WanNa do right. You need intelligence. You need all those things but you need grit. You need some of that and I just think that the way they handle this they obviously got somebody who's more collaborative than dictatorship and. That's what they wanted on it. I'm not sure that's what they needed. As you mentioned the com- analytics is just another word for information. And when you worked for Bill Belichick or walls work with them. You know you were feeding them. Information to quote gridiron genius. The fact you Mike Holmgren were good friends. He called you scooper because you were so tune in and what was going on around the NFL. Hiring coaches like homeroom is a convoluted path to building a staff. It required Walsh to spend lots of time and energy coaching his coaches. That was why he hired guys. Who are intelligent before there? Anything else guys. Were not typical products. The football industry his special teams coach. Fred von happen may still be the only coach in NFL history who read Sylvia plath every day before heading out to the practice field. Maybe the violence of her poetry help to prepare him for the carnage of kickoff coverage. That's a great quote but just to further the point about Walsham ballot check and how they assemble their staffs. Yeah I mean look. Nobody was more cerebral lim bill right but he's a real tough guy. Nobody's more cerebral than Bella check. And he's a tough guy and Fred. Von Was a tough guy you know and he'd read Sylvia Plath and he was was excluding the part that she put her head in an oven and he literally read that every single day it was unbelievable and his vocabulary was incredible vocabulary. Sorry but they had a sense of toughness and I think that parcells is the same way. parcells wants to hire guys from the Military Academy. He wants smart people right. Everybody wants smart people. They want smart people but they also want smart people that are going to be branded and do what they wanna do. And demand from the players not collaborate from the players and I think that this analytical nonsense is truly we're all in the information business so all the information is really important in my belief is that we're missing in the point when somebody puts on and says well there in eleven personnel. And they're doing this and that like do you understand what the eleven is and what they're really trying to accomplish. I mean Tevin Coleman was the running back that was the main back this week because Kyle Shanahan wanted a running back. Who's GonNa Threaten Mike Zimmer in the backfield because Mike Zimmer was gonNA play three linebackers now once that happened that according to the chart? That's twenty-one toward the analytic he's in twenty one personnel but he's really not because he's got Coleman in the game he's only in twenty anyone with Coleman because he's got three linebackers so how do you differentiate that you know. How do you break down the information you know? There's so many times I've been in meeting with Bela check. I'll be watching tape. And I made a comment. He said well the only reason they're doing that is because they're doing up about anyone into that you know like oh I got it now I got you just taught me something right. Like that's the game
Jimmy Johnson to enter Hall of Fame, but not in Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor
"Really truly believe. It's embarrassing for the Dallas Cowboys. That Jimmy is now a pro football hall of Famer and that it actually took this. You know a specific centennial annual class for him to get in and that he's not in the ring of honor that's it's it's a shame it really truly is yeah it is And and you know I don't know we don't know you know the behind the scenes of of all that but it certainly does you know put Put their among you know on the front of the The world stage just to you know. How do you explain this right? Yeah and the guys in the hall all of fame because of what he did in your organization. Yeah he's not what dozens yeah. Yeah no exactly You know so yeah I mean I I you know I agree with you and you know it's also you know kind of you know how like we always talk about things you can't plan you know the the same very same week that Jason Garrett Leave the organization. Mike McCarthy joins the organization and then Jimmy Johnson gets inducted into the pro football hall of fame. I mean you just can't plan that I mean and you know so here is McCarthy now you know he's now he's got you know quite a high standard To you know to shoot after and then you know I I wish him the all the success and hope he surpasses that but you you know. That's pretty high standard now. Yeah I WANNA get your. We've got a criminal out into the end here but to finish the tai-bo on the Jimmy Jerry. Thing it you're right like there could be. I mean because you know there's an infinite amount of possibilities or I guess it's technically fine but I mean there is potentially a reasonable or at least somewhat understandable reason. Why Jimmy Johnson's not during a fire like that possibility does exist? But you said it I mean you. CanNot it really explain this in all this does is really make Jerry. Jones look poorly. I don't think you know I think that you look at it. I don't believe leaving Karma that's not like you know our faith or anything but I do think it's at the very least interesting that you know so you know because people say Jerry's there is only in the hall of fame because he stood on. Jimmy shows whatever but. I think it's funny that you know denied that Jerry was celebrated with cowboys fans at Agency stadium. Liam for going on you know when they give them their hall of fame ring. That night was the night. They lost to the eagles in two thousand seventeen. That's literally the worst loss ever in a ged stadium sister. You know what I mean. That's just a really funny coincidence. And you know you look at Gil Brandt who also took way too long to get him to honor and he just barely got in there before before he got into the hall of fame and at the time the writing was on the wall that he was going into the hall but Gil Brandt went in the night. They beat the saints in two thousand eighteen. You you know what I mean this like incredible night everyone will remember forever or as Jerry went on this one that everyone wants to forget and it just I think those are funny things that automatically you know make paint Jerry in a poor light or whatever he did release a statement And he said were so happy that the hall of fame has recognized. Jimmy Johnson. Awesome for what he is. That's the first sentence and it's just like well. Then how have you not you know. It's a really unsettling thing and I think that like like throwing a boomerang. Yeah it's a really a hypocrite. I don't know what word to use but it it looks really badly on the cowboys organization. That that it actually happened. I mean great for Jimmy Johnson. But you know you know. Somebody tweeted at us on the block on the boys camp. It said that Jerry should inductive an I vehemently disagree superior that the moment should belong to Jimmy and Jimmy alone because he did he has not gotten that do in cowboys fans. He should bathe in it all in his own. If he wants have his players you know like we talked triplets. Think that would be cool but this you know. It's a really really really bad season for Jerry. Jones the owner of the cowboys. And this is kind of the. You know the closing of that circle so to speak. Yeah no I totally agree and and the yeah. Yeah I mean I I think that You Know Jerry Has Been Very very kind of to due to Jimmy in terms of you know whatever success cowboys have had in terms of including hammer recognizing them for that in fact you know may have even gone out of his way to try tried to leave him out of it but You know this it's here is something he cannot ignore it. I mean it It's very vivid. Part of You know with the cowboys success is is due to and And Yeah I think it's Jimmy's opportunity. I'm you know Going there and enjoy the moment with themselves by you know himself on on a standalone basis as a as a dynamic coach that You know did some some pioneering things to change the game and I do believe that firmly

There's if we're doing a pie chart he does not have the majority of it but he's got the biggest piece of it and when you look at the cowboys and you look at their numbers not it. Just the eye test of talent. But they're point differential. They're point difference list was plus one hundred and thirteen that is elite. The the only teams named better than that this year. Baltimore New England San Francisco Kan City New Orleans what most people think are the best teams in football maybe with Green Bay's sprinkled in every two eleven teams in the NFL have point differential meaning. They outscored their opponents on the season by more than thirty points. Thirty ten of them are in the playoffs. The eleventh is the Dallas Cowboys and again. We're top six. That is coaching. It's not just coaching. But the inability to be good teams which they could not do. All your you're the inability to win close games. They were what oh in. Seven in Games decided by less than ten points that is coaching not exclusively but partially and once again for the fourth time. Jason Garrard's career wasn't this week last week. You at a win. And you're in game in week sixteen or Seventeen against divisional opponent and for the fourth time in those four opportunities they lost so Jason Garrett Jason Garrett Speight to me was sealed a month ago when Jerry Jones put him on notice after the Patriot game saying Jason Will Be Coaching in the League next year but didn't say where and then they fell flat against Detroit and they fell flat against buffalo and they fell flat plot against Philadelphia. But yeah forty five percent. Fifty percent of the cowboys failures have to go on Jason Garrett his contracts expiring and his Simon Dallas is over. What you're talking about Jerry Jones putting Jason Garrett on notice a month ago I mean Jason Garrett came into this season orders because Jerry Jones wouldn't give him a contract extension and there's a reason why? NFL teams don't allow coaches to be lame ducks going into a year. Just because you want the players in the locker room to respect the head coach's authority but if you're a garnered locker room if you're demarcus lawrence or if you're Zeke you elliot you have more job security than your head. Coach does and that does something to a teams mentality. So we're we're trying to figure out why Jason Garrett couldn't get these teams to turn on the lights which I couldn't get this group Cohen. One of the Ross's that we said was the most talented coming into two thousand eighteen. Not a big part of it has to do with Jerry Jones not giving Jason Garrett the job security so while nick puts a lot of blame of this season on Jason Garrett. I go back Jerry. Jones decision is all season not to extend Jason Garrett we all understand Jerry wants to compete for championship and he finally feels like he has a team. That's capable of doing that. But what you do have to empower your head coach and Jerry. Jones failed to do that. So that's why I put a lot of the failure of this year on the owner. The only problem is you can't fire Jerry. Jones Finds GonNa be there so I think the next to take the blame has to be Jason Garrett. He won't be go to Dallas Cowboys in two thousand twenty. The good thing about this team is it. It's basically intact. They've got on a good team for all purposes. They're very talented. You probably going to have your quarterback Evert Pager. You're running back. You got a great wide receiver. Your defense is a little banged up but you you got that. You're great defense so when you're looking at filling that position what type of head coach are you looking for when you know the relationship with the owner and you know what kind of team you already have. I do not think the cowboys can afford the risk of an unproven college coach. I think that the risk versus reward on that is way I it's it's it's outta whack. They are not rebuilding. They cannot have a year of growing pains. Where you figure some things out you show some good things and it's like all right about route? Twenty twenty one twenty twenty one now. It is win right now win now mode for the cowboys honestly started the years following 2016. They didn't know they were in one. Now modin DAX rookie or go thirteen and three. When you have the rushing champion? Zeke Elliott. They were in weakened compete for Super Bowl right now from twenty seventeen Ford award seventeen. They missed the playoffs. Nine and seven hundred Zeke suspension. Last year they start horribly. Rally Down The stretch when one playoff game but they were never sukhpal threat this year. They were never super super bowl threat because their inability to win close games they on the average cowboys named this year. They outscored their opponent by seven points and they outgained their opponent by one hundred hundred yards and they finished eight eight. What you need is a professional season head coach? So people are going to say Ron Rivera. But Ron rare might get hired before the today show with Washington. I'm going to say a name that a lot of people aren't mentioning Leslie. Frazier that Leslie Frazier. Who made the playoffs with Christian? Ponder is is quarterback that can Minnesota got day in a short trigger with him as they often do with certain coaches in this league. He's done a great job as the defensive coordinator in Minnesota would bring a toughness this and a professionalism to the cowboys I think they need. I think the the Matt Rule who people know him the head coach of Baylor those guys. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a good head coach. I'm not saying Lincoln Riley Riley wouldn't be a good. NFL head coach but if there are disaster by the time you can recover from that Zeke's don like how long do you your this. You're on a totally new team. So I wanNA known quantity as a head coach and defensive minded coach to me. That's all the more of a bonus because it's a switch from what they have now. No you're right. Once team's make go through a coaching change. They usually go in the opposite direction of what they've already had chasing offense and mine. They're probably going to lean toward the defensive side of the ball. But I'm with you in terms comes of not taking a chance on a college coach. You don't need a question mark as head coach position when you have championship aspirations. But I don't think that the cowboys can stay the course either you you can't go status quo and run this thing back Jason Garrett. This is not an option. You had this guy there for the the the decade. He's had nine full seasons he took over. I think eight Games James Let in two thousand ten as the interim head goes half today moved on from way. But I mean looking at Jason Garrett. It just has not been good enough eighty-five in sixty seven is the record record. But you've only got three playoff berths to playoff wins. They'RE GONNA have to improve on. That team is trying to get to the next level. I don't think Jason Garrett can take them there I do. I think they need to find a coach that has experience in that role as head coach in order to put this team in the best position to try to compete. When you don't think Jerry John's wants to bring in a name he's a splashy owner you don't think he he? The reason Hurbon in his box the reason let me throw throw name mature that that checks the box of experience not going off into the into the what about offer Josh mcdaniels ten million dollars a year. What about just saying jasmine downs? You know what computer a Bell Jackson coach there forever you. You almost went to indy. We Josh mcdaniels has the experience obviously has learned from the greatest coach of all time. That may maybe as a way to thread. The needle of that isn't name and also has some experience to it. That's the name I'd be on the lookout for as well. The only thing. We're Josh mcdaniels. Is You have to wonder whether he'd be cool with Jerry. Jones being the general manager because if he's learned anything bill belichick and his first tenure as head coach with the Denver Broncos. Probably my best interest. If if I have control over the roster I dunno Dasa Day is going to sign up for that. He'll have other opportunities where he can have more control within the organization but gets a years ten and million dollars a year a year. But you do want to put yourself in the best chance to succeed. Because if he becomes a head coach for the second time and it doesn't work out. Chances are wall via third would Jason Garrett the three losses that they're going to lament from this season the loss of the New York jets the loss of the buffalo bills at home Thanksgiving and then lost the week after in Chicago. Kogyo those are three games that Dallas cowboys had no business losing in costs and guaranteed job for put a grade on it sponsored by Carmax for the eagles else philly won the NFC east with a win over the giants Carson Wentz. There were two hundred eighty nine yards and a score to get the injury riddled eagles into the playoffs. Nick put a great on on Wednesday. How can you give me anything? But they won. They won their fourth. Must win game in a row. It was tied again going into the fourth quarter against the giants team. They gave him trouble a few weeks ago. And then a blown out I give Carson Winston causing with has to get an but you also gotta give an eight to that defense especially the defensive line in the Philadelphia Eagles. They showed a made some game changing plays and then of course Malcolm Jenkins had strip day or does that set up that touchdown to kind of put things away in the fourth quarter so.

"We hope it's safe. We hope it's wonderful. We hope it's blessed You know I know. It's a busy time of the year and we appreciate you giving part of it to us here on the show. I know my voice still sounds pretty bad. I found out went to the doctor and I am. I'm not sick. Thank God I do have a little bit of an aggressive allergy attack going on so if you'll forgive me for how easily I sound at least I think uneasily. Maybe it's all in my head you know maybe this is That episode of Friends Phoebe and ultimately you know my voice sounds better. I really doubt that that's the case In on the subject things being better it was possible. I suppose theoretically that Monday things could have gotten better for the cowboys right. I mean because Sunday was so bad. I don't know why I thought that because Monday was only bad. Monday was terrible for the cowboys. Maybe because it's a full sort a whole day of the crap that happened as opposed to lose like six thirty on Sunday so you only have to deal with half the day being terrible whereas Monday reality has set that in you've woken up in a bad mood and all sorts of things and Jason Garrett did a Lotta talking as he does every Monday following cowboys game and kind of like he has is the season dug himself deeper and You know Jane Slater from NFL network. Friend of the show has kind of been hip to this idea. It is ridiculous that the cowboys allow Jason Garrett behind microphone the day after Games because he tends to only make things worse this season which I find very interesting and look. I'm not trying. China goes bad for Jason. Because that's not what I'm doing here. But if we're being objective here one of Jason Gertz absolute strengths throughout his entire tenure with the Dallas cowboys. Which I know has gone on and far too long one of his strengths has always been how he has handled the media the way he has spoken when behind a microphone in front of a camera he has never been somebody that could be? Phased could be rattled that has stepped over himself yet. This season we've seen a lot of that. Used this season Jason Garrett has said things that are kind of what are you doing. I mean you know and a lot of it has been not taking accountability for things. A lot of it has been deflecting things and he did some more of that on Monday. He was always. I was Sean are Jalen off after the fan on Monday morning. And he was asked about the fourth eight call and everybody knows what happened on fourth and eight and it was not a great it decision from the cowboys and he said in terms of the personnel group to have that be a tall personnel. Play that would be callans decision. That's a play that we liked in that situation for the variety of coverages that they were going to play. We felt like we had good answers with that in regards to the receiver rotation Sanjay Lal. And it's just a communication nation during those on the ball drives. Sometimes those guys work the rotation different ways based on the route state run and plays. They've run and all of that so throughout this entire answer Jason Zinger blames not just killing more but Sanjay law and look it was four thousand eight. The cowboys ran twelve personnel. No idea why. But that's the way the cow I always want to go. I mean they love their two tight ends why I mean why why would you. Why okay? That's you know we're we're beyond that but I mean the this play is I mean. I know we're sort of nitpicking focusing on one thing but this play was so bad I mean the fact that Jason Garrett said that that's what they wanted is absurd. Why would you on fourth and eight with your season on the line? Not Want Amari Cooper Randall. Cobb on the field and I mean that's a fair question I and Jason Garrett might as well because he blamed Kellen Moore and Sanjay law you know and it was reported by the Fort Worth Star telegram on Monday afternoon. That the cowboys benched Amari. I find that report very interesting We wrote about this. I rather blocking the boys dot com. So you can get over there and read it Clarence Hill. The Fort Worth star-telegram tweeted on Monday. They afternoon he's on twitter at Clarence Junior. Sorry about my sniffles. I'm battling like I said I'm going to beat this thing. But anyway the Cowboys Limited Amari Cooper snaps in the fourth quarter against the eagles because he wasn't playing well per sources they legitimately didn't think having him in on four thousand eight. Have them the best chance to win. If he is not hurt this will be revisited in contract talks. That's exactly what Clarence Hill's tweet reads. That is a very interesting message and narrative for the cowboys to push things about that last sentence and you can go read this tweet again blocking the most dot com it. He is not hurt. This'll be revisited. In contract talks now. I'm not trying to call all anybody Aligarh. Okay that's that's not how I roll. I don't think that's how anybody should roll. But I just I find it. I don't WanNa say don't believe but I find it very hard to believe that Amari Cooper was is totally healthy during this game in Philadelphia. I mean he's been hurt to a great degree all season long right. I mean we've seen him struggle with this struggle with that knee bruise you know hit foot. Whatever whatever I mean it's been a little bit of everything and so you're telling me that he was magically fully properly healed in Philadelphia and what's more is? Why are the cowboys pushing this? Why is this narrative narrative getting forced out? That Amari Cooper was not hurt at all because if he was hurt it would justify if we found out and maybe we will find out a month from now two months from now. Maybe it'll be some sort of bleacher report notification that POPs up on our phones in April talks about how I Mari Cooper was hurting this game. And there's this big expose and big sort of you know report all about it. But if Amari Cooper was hurt and we found out we would all sit here and we would say well that served and it was unfortunate but that makes sense all of a sudden. It's understandable why. He was playing playing poorly by comparison. Obviously why he wasn't out there on fourth and eight why you wouldn't want him out there on fourth and eight etc but if he was fully healthy then the narrative then the conversation conversation is while Amari must not be as good Amari is not not as good as he wasn't two thousand. Eighteen Amari isn't worth twenty million dollars per year and you know why that would be a relevant conversation conversation. I Dunno because of my cooper is going to be at the negotiating table. Come this off season so it makes sense from a business perspective to drive down the cost. The thing that you're going to have to pay for and again I'm not trying to accuse anybody of anything but that's how this thing reads to me because it's very difficult to believe that Amari Cooper was not got hurt at all and that the cowboys benched him because he was playing poorly again maybe he was playing badly. Fine whatever you don't think there was Mark Cooper's best game I'm not going to fight you but that anybody with full consciousness could think that a four thousand eight play call has a better chance of success with Jason Witten as an aerial option over Amari cooper or Randall. COBB for that matter is beyond me I just I I have a hard time personally grasping that and the twelve personnel again I find why would jason here at stick to this. It doesn't make sense. Talked about what he said. I WanNa talk through the fan on Monday morning. I was on the blades on. Espn San Antonio on Monday afternoon. It was a very busy Monday and We had Jason Brennan. We have him on every Monday on. Espn San Antonio on the blitz. He's brought to you by best spellbinds. It's really cool. He comes on and so I was there and so Jason Mimics and now we talk to him and this twelve personality and kept coming up at me and it was coming up all day long. He kept explaining himself on every media. Appearance he so I finally asked him. I said coach you know what. Why do you like this toll personnel thing? Here is my question and Jason Grids. Answer coach what is it specifically that you like about twelve personnel net situation Jason There was just some some different match ups we had you know. Each of those guys is eligible obviously and IOS based on the key combination of covers. They were GONNA play. You know we had a good answer inside if they're gonNA play one thing and the way to go outside so we're GonNa play something else you know answers. It's just to get us the first down or you know if they give you the opportunity to take a shot down the sidelines in Amanda Amanda Situation. So you know just the combination of of You know routes hat on that particular play with always going to be good in that situation. Call me old fashioned but I just am of the belief that if you got to pick up eight yards you know what's your game and season career on the line that maybe would want to have as many dudes as possible possible that were physically capable of that. Because I don't think that if if we power rent you and I we sat down right here right now. We got a couple of hot chocolates and and we said okay. Let's powering rank the cowboys. Aerial options pass catchers in terms of likelihood to convert a fourth eight. Where would jason wouldn't be on that list? I mean he's sure as hell would not be above above Amari cooper or Randall. COBB and I know the rotation and everything not hogwash. That's it this is this feels like you know hindsight sort of you know dusting Austin under the rug trying to make sense of it. I mentioned last week. My wife and I went and saw deer of enhancing the majestic theater here in San Antonio was fantastic. And there's a apart. It's a musical if you're not aware of that and there's a part of it where this the main character is sort of caught in a web of lies and there's a point in this web where he's getting called out and he's saying well you you know your stories not starting to add up because you talked about this at one point and when you talked about it in a different time the details were different. which is because the details? Aren't making sense. Nick contradict each other. That's kind of how this is starting to feel it. Feels like chasing your tail compound million different analogies. But this is this is bad. I mean I hate to be that way with you and I hate to sound like all hope is lost but this is this is bad. This is a bad place to the cowboys and Jason. Garrett is a huge problem by everyone's uh-huh agreement but there's there's more to it I mean there's more to it than just Jason Good Let's get into that on the other side of this. We're GONNA take a quick break to hear award from our sponsors. Hey I'm Jason Del Rey. I recently wrapped.

"Everybody welcome back from the break. Little Bear is settled in. I think he wanted some food some food in. He's calmed down a bit for those of you. That are curious how the puppy things gone. Pretty good he's He's learning. He's listening he's hungry clearly. And now he's starring in podcast so good for him but on the subject of bears and other NFC NFC teams and their mascots. That's my horrible Segue Carolina. Panthers announced on Tuesday that they were parting ways with head. Coach Ron Rivera era. As you know Ron Rivera had been a member of the bears. They're nineteen eighty five bears Ron Rivera. Salata coaches came from there but around very had been with the Carolina Panthers since two thousand eleven that was the year that the drafted Cam Newton. The first overall pick oversaw a lot of success and Carolina. At one point they went back to back to back and south champions Really high points. Certainly that two thousand fifteen season where they went fifteen. One beat the cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. That was Tony. Romo's last start by the way it was was actually came to. The cowboys were favored in as weirdly as that was good times. Good Memories but Cam Newton being hurt this season lots of factors it certainly questionable actionable that the panthers would choose to fire Ron Rivera in some people's minds but other people get it I mean he's he's he has an ad success and on the subject of his success. Because it's worth mentioning is Ron Rivera. Now has almost a decade's worth of head coaching experience that it was twelve years ago. Thirteen years ago when this off season approaches when we're in the offseason of twenty twenty that Ron Rivera Rivera interviewed for the then Vacant Dallas Cowboys Head coaching job and it was of course Wade Phillips that ultimately got that gig and I would argue that that was the last time the cowboys head coaching. The job was totally open for search because in two thousand ten the following offseason the beginning of two thousand eleven. When the cowboys were looking for head coach it was obviously? There was going to be Jason Gould especially after he went five. And three is the interim so the last time that things were to truly totally up for grabs was when Ron Rivera interviewed in two thousand and seven. Now he didn't get the job then but he did get the panthers job for years later and so he's been there a long time and I was curious so I looked up his resume. Compared to Jason Garrett also wrote about this at the site if you want to check it out block other boys dot com now Ron Rivera since two thousand eleven because he Jason Goss both took over full time as mentioned and Jason was the interim cowboys coach over the second. Half of two thousand ten. So we're not counting those games. But Ron Rivera. Since then went seventy six seventy six wins sixty three losses and the lone tie three division titles mentioned and the One Super Bowl appearance where they lost to the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning's final game now Jason Garrett has been the cowboys head coach over the same stretch of time full time he has seventy eight wings so to more than Ron Rivera sixty two losses one less than Ron Rivera and does not have a tie which is why the math is a little bit weird. Jason also has three division titles of course has the opportunity to season to earn a fourth. And while Ron Rivera has been to the Super Bowl at the very least east Jason Garrett has as you know never been to an NFC championship game. So the question becomes while Ron Rivera is capable of being fired why I is Jason Garrett and I tell you what I've said a lot of things would be the most cowboys this whatever-ever and if if Jason endured is not fired but ultimately just doesn't have his contract renewed that will be the ultimate sort of cowboys way to get rid of him. You know what I mean like if the cowboys just decide Oh you know what. We're not gonna not going to fire. You Know Jason. Yeah we'll just not gonNA bring back and he technically wasn't fired that will be the most obvious thing of all time but it is a fair question I think to ask. Why Ron Ron Rivera? Time is up with the panthers and Jason Girth is not with the cowboys. Attorney has a lot to do with the ownership. Obviously the current panthers have changed owners now owned by David Tepper And Jerry Jones still resides the Dallas cowboys. But you look at that. That doesn't bode well for Jason Garrett and again you can you can all these stats. You can talk about wins losses and records and whatnot not but it ultimately is going to come down to whether or not the Dallas Cowboys win the Super Bowl. This season if they do. I think Jason Garrett safe if they don't well he's going to be like Ron Rivera. I don't I know that Ron Rivera would be illegitimate coaching candidate for the cowboys. If they do move on from Jason Garrett I have to imagine that Rivera will be regarded as an option because people will look and say. Oh yeah well you know. He didn't have CAM in two thousand. Nineteen you know. He's still a good coach and etc and people will find reasons. I mean that's the way sort of the coaching circles and cycles go. But I don't know I think if you want a new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. I don't know that you want it to be Ron Rivera. I don't know that you want to defensive coach. Maybe that is the case. Maybe the cowboys say you know what we're GONNA in a keep killing moron. He's going to sort of take control of the offense. Let's get somebody in here. Somebody who who has been to a super bowl somebody who knows what they're talking about somebody who players respect those those people around the NFL and somebody you can whip this defense into shape at Mossy. But let's let's pay some focus. Pay attention to this week's game again cowboys on the road owed against the Chicago. Bears Tomorrow Mignona on Thursday. No practice for the following members of the bears Prince Amukamara Ben. Dan Brown Accor- Taylor. Gabriel Bobby Massie and Danny Trevathan. If you're curious those are the same players who did not practice on Monday. There was limited. Participation for Belong Nichols tells. The bears defensive tackle. Let's move to the cowboys side of the injury report no practice for Jeff Heath once again no practice for late and vander. She'll get there in a second no practice for Antwon Woods Limited. Did I say Tony Parlor. We'll get to twenty two and no practice for Sean Lee. That to me seems like that day. Remember that today or oh yesterday. Tuesday was sort of like Friday for the couch. That's kind of the vet. You know. Way Sean Lee has rolled limited participation in practice with the cowboys for Michael Bennett. Randall COBB lioe okay. Oh Collins Zack. Martin Tyrant Smith and Darren Thompson basically the entire offensive line full participation in practice for Amari Cooper he seems to go Byron Jones owns. And that's it so Tony Pollard. Popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury. Who knows what the cowboys would do if he was not able to go? I mean it's not not like they're really utilizing Tony Anyway. I mean I hate to sound that Grumman that pessimistic but I mean this could be a game where they're gonNA have to run the ball given the circumstances of the weather and the conditions and and everything but I mean. It's it's hard to predict as you know late in Vansh was ruled out for this game already already. He has not played since the cowboys were on the road in their win against the Detroit lions so he has missed the last two losses. He said on the ticket on Tuesday that he's focused focused on playing basically for the duration of a career. Not just four years and it does make you wonder about what Jason Garrett said when he first talked about this he said Yeah. I mean it's not career threatening and the fact Anthony brought that up out of nowhere had a lot of people concerned But later advantage will miss his third game in a row which makes me really grateful on one hand for Sean Lee and the fact that the cowboys are able to keep him around. Although Sean Lee had a fantastic performance against the New York giants I'd his nap great ever since and look this this game in Chicago I mean like I said. We'll have another episode tomorrow. We'll kind of get more into that game specifically but this is this is it man and it's a weird thing because you can save this as it because the cowboys are kind of up against this wall. But it's really not. I mean the cowboys could lose this game and a very well might and their playoff odds are essentially the same. It's crazy I mean the. NFC East is so weird this season but the cowboys are very fortunate to be in it being the division and be in the race for it. Uh specifically I mean the Washington redskins three nine three and nine and they're still on the subject of threes by the way I realized that Taco Charleston who has five sacks ex and it has all five since joined the Miami Dolphins. That's by the way demarcus Lawrence has five sacks on the season if you want some salt in your wound but since the cowboys waived Taco nocco Charleston and he was claimed by the Miami Dolphins. Obviously those two teams met in week three so not counting that so basically from week four on the Dallas Cowboys. are three and six. The Miami Dolphins are three and six and all these things all these sad stats always depressing points. I know they're not fun. But but that's where the cowboys are right now at the center of the universe and so when they don't play well their ineptitude is highlighted. And that's just where they're at. They have some ineptitude going on. But you you know hopefully they they can bounce back sooner rather than later. It is Wednesday so hopefully you just got to have the best ones ever. Just just stop talking about it. Just have the APP loot best Wednesday of all time you know why because number one bear showed up on this episode and he. That's what I think. When he was saying he was like have the best ones? They've all time but you know why you really got to have the best ones time as he tried. And you can hear the Jingle Jangle of his color. You've got to have the best Wednesday of all old time. Because you deserve we will see you magnon on my friends as always go cowboys. It yeah the..

"Show you know me of course from BTV and from writer humble host on the show it is Wednesday December four th two thousand nineteen very happy Hump Day from all of us at blog on the boys to you. It is the middle of the work week however it is the day before the Dallas cowboys visit. Is it the Chicago bears in their week. Fourteen matchup one that they don't technically need. I know it's crazy. Cowboys could lose their next. Two Games win their final two and still win the NFC east lots to get into on that front a bit of a programming note while we do have this episode available for you on Wednesday if you were wondering what our Thursday stay schedule is going to be. Since the cowboys play on Thursday night football we will have an episode available for you on Thursday morning here on the show and then of course. We'll have our post game episode. That will go out As soon as we can get about after the game and that will serve as our Friday episode south. Just so you're prepared. But I know that I said on in two days episode that I was recording before the Monday night. Football game and that I was kind of planting my flag or moving my flag from Russell Wilson Mountain to Lamar Jackson Man. I'm so confused. The Monday night game was great. Russell Wilson was awesome. The Vikings were great to and honestly you know I kind of liked the uniform combination. That the seahawks hawks war which I'm a bit surprised about personally look whoever wins. MVP between Russell and the Mar- I think is certainly very worthy and deserving. I think I'm leaning in Lamar. I really do think I am I in spite of the great performance by Russell Wilson. But we'll see but because Russell Wilson seahawks wont and because Lamar Jackson's Ravens won beating in the San Francisco Forty niners. That's the key part. The Seattle seahawks currently sit atop the NFC west in the Dallas cowboys as they do lead the NFC FC East the cowboys. The playoffs began today. They do not but if they began today the Dallas cowboys would host the six thousand six Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys would host the ten into San Francisco. Forty niners in the wildcard round. And I think you know to spend a little time on this. It's important because that Monday night game is very very very pivotal for the overall. NFC playoff picture. And that's important because the cowboys are obviously involved. The Seattle seahawks moved to ten and two just like the forty niners whatever they have that tiebreaker because they beat them and the Minnesota Vikings fell to eight and four. Now both the seahawks and niners are ten and two and currently I. I think I think we can all assume that whoever doesn't win the NFC west is going to be the top team if you had any hope of playing the Minnesota Vikings in the wildcard round and obviously obviously. We're talking about the cowboys playing them. I think that hope went out the window on Monday night. Because the Vikings lost to the seahawks that puts them a little bit too far behind the eight ball I think. So it's sort of firmly establishes. The cowboys are going to draw if the cowboys doing the. NFC East the NFC west loser kind of boils down to who you would rather play. Obviously the cowboys hosted the seahawks in the wildcard round. Last year they won that game although a lot of people certainly believe that was because Pete Carroll insisted on running the ball and not giving it to Russell also worse than so personally. I think I would be more afraid of Russell. Wilson's seahawks Jimmy. GAROPPOLO's forty niners. I know that forty nine or defense is tough but I mean you're you're splitting hairs this talking about two of the best teams in the NFL. I think I'd rather as the forty niners and the seahawks but obviously we have a month left to get to before all of that is going to be a factor. We have some NFL news too good to certainly with regards to a different. NFC team in the Carolina. Panthers we'll get to that in a second but before we do. I want to talk about what Jerry Jones had to say. This was all over the world. Everybody talking about this. Jerry said I WANNA five thirty the fan on Tuesday morning. He's on with Sean and RJ. Every week they always do such a great great job getting him to say such juicy little things in look. Let's let's just get into it. Here's what Jerry said okay. Jerry was asked to properly set it up. He was asked. If Jason Garrett has any sort of bar that he has to hit this season with regards to you know a level of success he has to attain. Here's what Jerry Jones said on one of three the fans When I look at coach coaching and stuff is the head coach? I looked at all coach. think about there's no exclusive. Nobody's got exclusive skills skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win super bowl. But they're qualified people Jason Joe it is one of them in my opinion. Aj will be coaching in the NFL. Next you now to be perfectly clear here Jerry said there was not a bar that Jason Garrett had to get over A lot of people have taken it upon themselves to define this at different times. Some people have said it's good to the NFC championship game when the cowboys have been struggling lately. It's it's kind of become more and more clear that the bar if there is one although according to Jerry there's not is to win the Super Bowl and look I get it I mean it's it's a tall task to win the Super Bowl. You know if you're the cowboys but like we mentioned I mean they have to win two games right to get into the tournament. One of them mm-hmm has to be the eagles game now to be clear they can. They can win different games. There could be other combinations of things that happen if the Philadelphia Eagles were to lose. which doesn't seem like it's instead of the question at this point in time but Jerry is going to say this kind of stuff and this is the reality of the cowboys have to deal with for now but the coaching in is is questionable? I think it's fair to wonder why you know it's been over here to wake. I should say because when Games are on Thursdays as the all twenty two films available later than it usually is and so. It's a lot longer until film reviews. Get up and things like that and if you consume a lot of cowboys content than I know you so you've been affected by this but I thought Bob Sturm from the ticket from the athletic who does a great job in his decoding. More susie does every week. Hit a great line about the cowboys. Special Teams Unit. I mean this speaks of the whole team but I think it's certainly speaks to the special teams and this again go really. It's in the athletic if you don't have an athletic subscription certainly atlan courage that they are starting their average drive inside their twenty three yard line since week nine which as you know is even worse than a touchback after kickoff think about that the cowboys average starting field position is worse than if they were to just take knees out of the end zone every single time now. Some of that isn't isn't kickoff. Some of that is puns and some of that is turnovers if they happen. I tweeted the interception leaders for the cowboys and season it's grim executor. Woods has two interceptions and enjoying Lewis. Each have won. The cowboys have four interceptions in total. So far this season as a group there are a lot of players players. In fact there are three players that have more than them individually Minkah Fitzpatrick. Marcus Peters and Devin mccourty each have five. You'll note that two of those Minkah Fitzpatrick and Marcus. Peters both traded. You did this season. So that's a little depressing but yeah man. I mean this. This coaching situation is not going away. And I tell you what you know. This is Wednesday Wednesday that you and I are talking if the cowboys win tomorrow. I don't think anybody's really gonNA care. I don't think any is going to be bad because guess what that's another low level team that you'd be. Maybe if the cowboys go out they beat the rams next week. Okay maybe some people start to pay a little bit more attention because you you beat a high quality team and we'll see. What the reins do this week as? Well but I mean this is these are rough the times for Jason Garrett and it certainly did not help You Know Jerry. I mean it sounds weird to say but Jerry is not helping the situation at this point by talking about it. And what else can he say. I know that it's going to be your response. But every time Jerry voices support support for Jason Garrett people just roasted and that's the reality of the situation. They're in a lose lose situation where everyone's going to be mad if they do you mad if they don't they're going to say they're going to say that it's going to be relentless people are going to be after Jason Garrett in the cowboys because they feel like they've seen enough I mean they feel like the New England patriots game was just about the last straw and if you already felt that way than the buffalo bills lost certainly put you over the edge which is where the cowboys find themselves. But such is life when you're six and six thankfully solely for the cowboys they're six and six but they lead the NFC east. Because it is so bad I mean my goodness it is bad I don't even know if if we can can. We assume that the eagles are GonNa win this week. Because I don't know that we can assume that they're they're bad in their own special kind of bad So I mentioned that we gotta get to Ron Rivera big news around the NFL certainly in terms of another coach domino sort of fell another option soon. There's my puppy bear. He's barking so he wants to be part of this conversation. let's go ahead and take care of their shoutout to him. Make an appearance here. Don't go anywhere before we get to Ron Rivera and all that stuff. We're GONNA take a very quick break to hear a word from sponsors. This episode is brought to you by. CBS Sports HQ so much sports TV nowadays is full of made up trauma. It's a bunch of hot takes from people who don't believe what they're saying just beating the same topics into the ground but CBS sports. HQ's change all that..

"This. If jalen Ramsey played for the ravens right. Now thank you wouldn't be making the plays Marcus. Peters as mega the join again by James Harrison Bar Arrington time now for the most of this conversation of the day are let's hit the Dallas us where the cowboys are preparing for Thursday night football class for the buffalo bills while the world wonders how committed Jerry. Jones is a head coach. Jason Garrett I say say not very committed I say Garrett is the Turkey that could be carved lake Thanksgiving night if the cowboys lose so the three bills in fact I believe it will be fire fire Thursday night or Friday morning if Dallas Loses to buffalo on Sunday in the wake of Dallas's thirteen nine loss to the wounded Patriots Jones Laced Into His Dallas coaching staff. He said the cowboys. Poor performance and special teams was a direct reflection of poor coaching today. During his weekly Radio Interview Jones was asked whether he considered firing Garrett after the Patriots Gay. The answer is no and But When your general manager curve which I am those coaches are out there at my Ultimate decision is very much within my round of Purview if you will basically Not only be standing there as an owner but be standing there as the general on a manager that staff gathered again with and so it's People seem to think that it's Particularly harsh to Have criticism And they think that when you Look at the side of the field and call a job. Well done that might mean that. That's extraordinary criticism of the job that you've done Over on the other side of the field. I don't hear any part. aww Jerry's answer as Garrett a safe for the rest of the season I hear it as Jerry wasn't going to fire his head coach during a short week of preparation fire and Garett after plane lane on a on a Thursday makes much more sense..

"Sounds like something you buy Dairy Queen. It's an Arctic blast edge New England. It changes the way I see this game. So. Outside of a handful of teams in college. And pro everybody's always looking to fire their coach because psychologically as a fan. It's easy to fire. A coach. Fans wanna believe they're just a coach away from winning it. All you can't fire players, right? Do you ever notice that fans will be overly loyal to average players? But really tough on excellent coaches because psychologically, you can talk yourself into if we just get rid of Mike Tomlin will win all our games. You know, if it's not for Bill O'Brien, we'd be way better than the colts. Historically can't fire JJ watt today being glowering multiple players. So fans always want the coach out much in the coach is often very good more than like average players troubled players, you'll be loyal to him. So Jerry Jones was talking about his coach Jason Garrett who's the most criticized successful coach in the NFL. And here's what Jerry Jones said Jason had been out on the market two weeks ago. He would have had five offer for head coaching. I know that so you got to look at what your alternate. Atv is I believe there's thirty two teams in the NFL. And I think twenty five percent of them have an elite coach eight there are eight coaches to me that feel better. Bella check, Andy Reid. Sean Payton, Sean, McVeigh, I think what Matt Nagy did in Chicago this year with limited offensive, personnel and Trubisky was remarkable Pete Carroll Doug Peterson and John Harbaugh. John Harbaugh lost a quarterback to the rookie quarterback. Who's not really good at throwing the football and they won their division. That is great coaching and he'd previously got into a Super Bowl. I think there are eight coaches that fan base is mostly. No, they're pretty good. After that, you do realize that Jason Garrett falls in the class of the other guys who we all like way more than we love. Mike Tomlin gets heating Pittsburgh. But you like Bill O'Brien in Houston. Dan, Quinn's been to a Super Bowl Atlanta. Ron Rivera and Carolina Jason Garrett. Mike Zimmer in Minnesota. They're clearly competent all of them. They've won divisions players generally play hard for them. And they went a lot of games..

But you like him Bill O'Brien in Houston. Dan, Quinn's been to a Super Bowl Atlanta. Ron Rivera and Carolina Jason Garrett. Mike Zimmer in Minnesota. They're clearly competent all of them. They've won divisions players generally play hard for them. And then when a lot of games, in fact, I can argue with all of them something really impressive. Do you know Bill O'Brien has won three division titles one year with Tom savage and Brock Osweiler. That's impressive. Mike Tomlin has been to to Super Bowls and won one Jason Garrett. He's been in Dallas forever said one losing season. What about Dan Quinn? Ron rivera. They got to a Super Bowl. My point is a quarter of this league or eight coaches most fan bases. Get on every Sunday. You've got the better coach Jason Garrett simply falls into a group of a bunch of guys who wanna resume I can certainly promote market and defend, but we mostly like them more than we love him. And he falls into that Bill O'Brien. Mike Tomlin, Ron Rivera. Dan quinn. Jason clearly competent, nobody better currently in the market have won multiple division titles. Rarely is the team not playing hard or man overboard. We can run Jason Garrett other town, and I do not consider him in the elite eight club look around the league at who is getting hired. Before you blast on Mike Tomlin and Ron Rivera in Dan Quinn, and Jason Garrett and Bill O'Brien and your Mike Zimmer's look at who the Packers hired look into Zona hired look around Lee look at who Cleveland hired take a deep breath. Matt Moseley covers the Cowboys talked about Garrett yesterday and how many feel in Dallas? I think something has to change. I think Jerry knows that this Jason Garrett thing he he was ready to fire him. I mean three and five he was getting ready in Saint not during the season. But he was ready, and he was lining up, and who knows Lincoln Riley, Matt rule, the great Baylor. Coach who knows who he was talking to. But he always has a note card of about three or four coaches ready. Jerry keeps that he's I never use. It doesn't seem like used to use. It a lot. The point is though Jerry younger Jerry was much more willing to ride guys out of town. Jerry overtime realize in less. You've got a great replacement. Having a solid good be plus head coach beats the alternative coming up next. Antonio Brown wants to be a San Francisco forty Niner. The San Francisco forty Niners could use as much as any other need an over the top wide receiver. My thoughts on.

"Com. You know, sully very well if you've been accomplished fan for a long time when solely was interacting with a Twitter user, somebody told him, I think Garrett would like all the help you get this year. In my opinion, this whole conversation started about Amari Cooper and potentially trading for him. And Sullivan said that I didn't think it would happen, etc. And Jeff Sullivan, who's on Twitter at sully, bald heads said, sounds like another extension could be signed soon. He's not going anywhere. And as you can imagine, this sent Twitter and a lot of people into a tizzy, kind of freaking out about this. Why an extension, what's going to happen, etc. Dallas Cowboys, they'd get a big win on Sunday against the Jaguars, but there's still a lot that needs to be proven. I think I speak for all Cowboys fans in that regard. You still have to figure out who this team is, etc. Before you potentially make a decision in beyond that? Jason GARRETT'S current contract that he signed after the two thousand. Fourteen season. So over three and a half years ago, his current contract has him as the Cowboys head coach through two thousand and nineteen. So it's not like this is even the last year of Jason. It's contract where you would feel some kind of pressure. I mean, I'm trying very hard to rationalize this. It's a very weird tweed, very weird little report. Jerry Jones who appears on one, five, three, the fan, obviously all the time. Jerry Jones was asked about this on Tuesday about this. This rumor, if you wanna call it that. And he said, my response is it is just not something I would have visited with anybody about. I've never spoken to another soul about that. So while this isn't necessarily a denial by Jerry Jones, excuse me that Jason contract extension is in the works did basically say that there's nobody except for me that would know about it. If it was going to happen, which is interesting. Of itself. But so, yeah, it seems like the contract extension tweet rumor is religious something that existed on Twitter for an hour or so, but certainly something to to watch moving forward because, again, the Cowboys three and three have a lot to prove. I think everybody wants to see a lot. There are a lot of Cowboys fans who feel a certain way about Jason Garrett, Scotland a hand, etc. To. I mean, I'm not at all saying I agree with this, so please don't don't take it that way. But I mean the only again, not logic, but the only thing that I think any of us can imagine as the Jerry Jones was potentially in this hypothetical. So overly impressed by the way the Dallas Cowboys beat the Jacksonville Jaguars that he saw enough again, this is a very large hypothetical, assuming this tweet were true for a second in this particular vacuum. That's the only thing that you can kind of rationalize if you're trying very hard. It's it's a very difficult thing to see as plausible. But again, Jeff Sullivan is very familiar with the Dallas Cowboys.

"You know to see a team that has a receiver like that. And Jerry's response was, I would love to have number one receivers. You have to get those when the opportunities or they're. So you know, obviously they had jets boss. To get one in a rookie and Ridley they took Vander edge in that may work out vendor Andrej appears to be around good player. I the the real time nature of this. I, I wanted to catch you up on Dez, has already responded to that from from Jerry, and he says, I don't know what Jerry mitt by that number one wide receiver, but I'm damn for sure would have kept them chains moving. Okay. That was a few minutes ago from Dez Bryant. So you think. From. Yeah, he's been trolling the Cowboys a lot of the season at their effort for him to respond to Jerry. I know for a fact that he does not hold Jerry responsible for releasing him. He thinks, you know, that was the the decision made by Jason, Garrett and Scott lead hand the offensive coordinator. Beyond that, I believed as about ready or feels he's about ready to resume his NFL career that he's taken care of some social anxiety issues and other problems that that he felt were were holding back that he's in great physical shape. And I think his preference despite all events, I think his preference is clearly to play for the Cowboys again and whether Jerry's willing to reconsider that Al, what he pretty much dismissed it as a possibility in in conversations he had before the game remains to be seen, but it is really hard to imagine any of these guys playing not just at the level. Dez achieve when he was at the height of his game. You know what his first couple years in the league with Ronal, but just what he did the last two years. I don't even think they can get back to. I don't think the current group can do a Dez did when he was a descending Blair. So I don't know what the money is desert willing to play for. I don't know if there's any amount of money. The Cowboys would be willing to swallow their pride and bring him back. I, I really can't imagine that happening, but I think he's very open to the idea. Yeah, he's, he's made it very clear and I just think this is where he feels the most comfortable and and you know it, it's I was looking real quick just to see what Josh Gordon did. He had another touchdown today to catches fifty yards course that was the other night that game that the patriots are involved in. So you know, obviously they had a shot to get in on him in for whatever reason, decide not to and they trade with round pick. And I can't sit here and criticize that for David Irving and Terence waves. Randy, Gregory. And then say, oh, you should have got Josh. I think you totally if knuckle games the last four years. Totally has I certainly understand their decision to pass on Josh court. He Shuna up for every game for the patriots you. You kill showed up for all to games. You can criticize them all you want, and and I appreciate it a good stuff this evening. And I think the, you know, this is we had the one game reprieve were, you know, maybe, oh, everybody feels a little bit better about things. But now I think this whole week will be about about Jason Garrett. I think the fourth and one call is going to get a huge amount of attention and and I just, you know, it's some. He has shown at times a willingness to take some risk. But generally he is not as danger who he is and no, Nope. Nope. Backup quarterback is generally gunslinger. Right? The backup quarterbacks agai whose job it is to just get us through these next few games. Don't be the reason we. Lose it while our starters out just give us our season back, you know, to the starting player when he's available, don't make the kind of mistakes to send everyone home is Bill Parcells USA..

"It is the doomsday podcast, and we're only about an hour after this Cowboys nineteen sixteen loss in Houston. It is truly doomsday for the Cowboys in a game that they hung around hung around and really seem to be in position to win. They find a way to lose that game late and Edward joining me from our Colorado studio and Ed. This was a this. This is a rough one. This is one that you just wonder if this team they litter, they needed desperately needed to come out of this stretch at three and two and speaking of stretch. By the way, we'll have Glenn stretch Smith later in the program giving out his grades. But Ed, this was this comes down to there are some unbelievable goal line stands by the Cowboys. There were some plays made. I've never heard Chris Collins worth about a game like this. I, I mean, I it was like, honestly, he'd never seen anything like some of the hits. That we, we saw in that game and it was a. I mean, there were a lot of crushing hits a lot of excitement, but it it comes down to about five and a half minutes left in this thing. It's an overtime, and the Cowboys are sitting there. Fourth in one at the Texans forty one yard line and Jason Garrett decides to punt what were your thoughts at the very moment in the now the way it's played out, where are you? Well, I think I think true things you know last week the Texans were involved in overtime game against the colts or the culture, coach, Frank, right? Went for it deeper. It is own territory. It had greater distance to get the first down. I think it was fourth and six, but it was also in overtime. He didn't get it and the Texans won that game in overtime. And then this week, the Cowboys head coach, Jason Garrett has an opportunity on fourth less than two, probably one and a half yards. He's built their entire team around is Aqeel Elliott league in rushing. And around a an offensive line that's among the best in football. And even on a night where you know, Ezekiel Elliott struggled forever yard. He gained a, he was still averaging two point seven yards per rush and garett elects. I think to basically play not to lose and play to the strength of his team, which was the defense, and he decided to punt and the Texans took that position possession turned it around and then won the game. So I think I Jason Garissa guy who's going to come under a great deal of scrutiny a Cowboys fan base with which he lost popularity. It's or long ago, and I think it's going to be a difficult week for him. And I think he's gonna really be challenged for this point or word to have the kind of support that that he would like to have. And I think it's not just this one decision and it's not just this one game, but help out this fact. Jason GARRETT'S tedium is Owen three on the road this year. Here they've scored eight, thirteen and sixteen points that's thirty seven points. Thirteen quarters. Goodness gracious at is that is that is remarkable and and I I mean, you're right, you wonder sometimes hey, do off of lines travel. Can you do there? They are against Texas team that was one in three, desperate for a win. And it's those moments. You know, teams are sort of, you know, we don't know if this winning this game would have defined Garrett or would have defined this season. But there are those moments where you kind of put your faith in your team. You load up. It's like you said with Zeke and when all is said and done. And if if Garrett doesn't make it this season, I think we all agree if they don't make the playoffs. He's probably done here. I think you can point back to a moment where it just his gut told him to do something more conservative. And in my thing on this, I, I hear your point about. Okay. Yeah, play the strength, your defense. But you know, we've seen more ties this year in overtime. It just to me, it looked like such a meek type situation. It wasn't like Reich. They weren't on their own side of the fifty and they were on the forty one yard line. The defense have been Bellingham out all night, and the truth is there..

"Cal is in the NFL you're all clobbering. Jason Garrett. When you look at all these offensive gurus, have you noticed there as successful as the quality of their quarterback is Doug Peterson that much smarter than matinee. He Andy Reid had both of them. Know the difference is Doug Peterson has Carson Wentz Nagy has Mitch Trubisky. Okay. Who sounds like my accountant? He came out of college. I didn't like Mitch Trubisky. He didn't start his junior year. I didn't like Mitch Trubisky out of college as ceiling that Prescott limited thirty two teams passed on him. Thirty two teams passed on him. I liked. I liked it. I'm pro Dak, but he's got a low ceiling. It's a little lower than I thought Jason Witten leaves Dez Bryant leaves and his limitations are being magnified. But we're all on the coach, even the greatest offensive coaches in this league. What do you bet that Kyle Shanahan offense doesn't look the same the next thirteen weeks with e. j. Beth third as it did in the last nine times he's had Jimmy Garoppolo you again the greatest chef can't use four day old bagels. What's the quality? The chef has. What is the Andy Reed's blow in the league up because Patrick Mahomes the most talented up all these guys, even the gurus have limitations. If you have a limited. Quarterback. I'm not calling Jason Garrett a great guru, but he was thirteen and three couple years ago. Jason Kerr knows what he's doing. I mean knows what he's doing in Jerry Jones would run them out of town. Jerry Jones is run a lot of guys outta town. Dax limited ceilings, lower. Then guys like me who liked him thought it's lower than I thought join the news. I heard on the news. This is the third line news so biggest has released their updated Super Bowl, odds and price prize..
