"Me and my family during our time here, I take great pride in my body of work on and off the field. I hope I have represented you. Well, while I was here. He was an honor to be a part of some big moments in franchise history. This chapter is now closed. I look forward to bringing the success and consistency that I produced to my next team. Translation, he will go on to sign with somebody else. And I promise you, ladies and gentlemen. If I'm a general manager. There's no question I'm signing this guy, and I understand we live in a salary cap type situation where you know, they don't wanna spend X amount of X amount of dollars, cetera, etc. Etc. But the kicking game like I said has been the most. Stabilize thing with this offense, and it has been because of Matt Bryant, and I just wanna see this. You know, oftentimes people like will belittle the kicker, and this and that older that they're not a real football players and not real athletes, but let your butts betrayal trailing by one or by two and you need to kick a game winning field goal or a game tying field goal. Then all of a sudden, he's the man if he comes through and way more times than not Matt Bryant has come through for this organization. And I'm sad to see him leave. I'll just be straight up with you. Yeah. He didn't play the whole year last year sustained an injury trying to give his Maximus. For his team. Didn't he kick like a fifty seven or eight fifty eight or sixty yard field goals? Something just extraordinary that went through the uprights and in doing so like pulled his Hammy or strained his Hammy or something like that. And you know, that's what I remember about map, Brian. I just don't want people to forget about what a role he has played with this franchise and. I think it's input output you spent money good money on a kicking game in that brand. Got you the return on that investment in? Yeah. I know the falcons wanted to play other guys I did it. But you're going from a known a proven track record Tom Brady ish type track record map. Bryant has consistently delivered for us because we're trying to save a nickel save dime. Save money to shift to somewhere else. Now, you're bringing uncertainty to to the position. So what happens next year if you bring it a kicker that's not doing the.

Meanwhile, practice today Jack Eichel Jeff Skinner back on a line together after they had been reunited in the third period in last night's win over the Minnesota wild Eichel Skinner back into line with Jason Palmdale line that had success earlier this season Palmer associates bought out a long time. So he's really smart as alignment, you know, where he's going to be at all times. You wins battles. Sure, you can serve read off. Obviously, Jack sort of drives the line and just kind of read off him.

"Look at it. There's already reports the Matt Brian is expected to be somebody that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers interested in obviously the bucks have had their own trials and tribulations with kickers certainly the Roberto Aguire days, Matt Brian actually started off his career starting up ahead an early part of his early career with made buck nears. And so I think this is certainly worth considering if the Cowboys because again this position matter so much aired on periscope says I like bread, but he's not trustworthy. Robert on periscope says you only fifty three spots can't waste on the kicker. I think Roberts addressing somebody had floated the idea of having both on the roster. It's been a long time since the guy was too kickers on their Oster. I'm not a proponent of that Gary on a log on the Facebook live feed says Maher will mature and settle in. There is a live and thought to that maybe Brent Maher had some rookie struggles. And maybe he'll be back are maybe he'll get to a proper form. We did see stretch time when he was super consistent super reliable before he got. A little bit rattling beings kind of change to a degree. But you have to consider it you have to consider. You don't have this money option that you've had in seasons. Pasaden- Bailey, Stephen Watkins, combating that point on on Facebook live says he'll mature he's twenty nine years old again, it's not like Brett Maher is this twenty two year old, you know, young player that has a lot of time to develop a great point by Stephen that he is a little bit of an older player. And so you can't necessarily trust that he's on the same career aren't that? A lot of other guys are there's a lot of proponents for finding a player fresh college, maybe drafting somebody and other undrafted free agent. Dan Bailey was but you have to look at this. You have to look at this long and hard because this is going to be such a pivotal season for the commerce as we've discussed Jason Garrett and during a contract year first year off of quote, entering kellyn more. There's a lot to look at this. And you're a team if you're the Cowboys you don't have a first round draft pick. I wrote about this today of blog on the boys dot com. The last time that the Cowboys did not have a first round draft. Pick was not a lot of fun. You'll remember that in two thousand and nine thanks to the trade for ROY Williams and other receiver the Cowboys did not have a first round draft pick. And in fact, they traded away their second round draft pick on the draft. Again. The Cowboys did not have a first or second round draft pick ten years ago, and they put together a draft it consisted of twelve picks in two thousand nine that was quite gross. If you have been watching the Cowboys for the better part of a decade at the very least you'll remember that the two thousand nine draft class for the team is one of the worst in franchise history twelve picks and not one to really be proud of. And that kind of goes with today's theme considering drafted David dealer to be sort of secondary kick kick off specialist and deep ball kickers specialist. And what have you times really changed over the last ten years in the NFL and the Cowboys, and I think we'd trust. Now more that we did then the Cavs can do damage what their late around picks McClay is really been great architecture. Finding contributors for the Cowboys in the later rounds and the. I that has been the second round draft pick for the Cowboys in recent years as really started kind of you know, calm down a bit. You look at their second draft picks, and who they become two thousand fourteen DeMarcus Lawrence two thousand fifteen obviously Randy Gregory has really rebounded two thousand sixteen. Jalen Smith two thousand seventeen today in two thousand eighteen Connor Williams who seems to have a bright future along the interior of the Dallas Cowboys offense of lying. So there's a lot to look there's a lot to be, you know, calmness..

"So the question is if it were up to you, would you rather have Brett Maher or Matt Bryant kicking for the Dallas Cowboys in two thousand and nineteen. It goes without saying that Matt Brian will beating more expensive option again because he likely is going to have suitors but the question from Aaron by the way on periscope. Why do they cut him? It's just a matter of impracticality for the Atlanta Falcons to Matt Ryan they have Giorgio Vecchio on the roster who who played well in Brian's absence this past season. You might remember Giorgio from his days with the open raiders as well. But we put up a poll about this on blocking the boys dot com. If you wanna go vote you can and so far fifty nine percent of the votes prefer Matt Bryant can. Kenneth on periscope wants to know how old is met Brian's Brian's been around a while he is been kicking in the NFL since two thousand and two with the Atlanta Falcons since two thousand and nine so he certainly has quite a plethora of experience when it comes to putting ball through the uprights and the NFL. But again, you know, it's it's hard because the Cowboys don't have a stable option like they have had in so many seasons before Christopher summers on the buses Facebook live. I'd rather have Bryant, and that kind of seems where people seem to prefer Ostra people seem to prefer excuse me. Because Brett Maher has people not feeling great. Brett Maher kinda Dan Bailey in two thousand seventeen struggled a bid down the stretch for the Cowboys. And he feels a little hard to trust. And that's not the worst thing in the world. Honestly, I mean, you know, you're going to miss kicks, and you're gonna miss extra point. So the NFL works these days, you're never gonna have somebody or it's really unlikely. The you're going to have somebody that Dan Bailey was for so long rarely going to kinda run into that guy. It's just money after money after money Justin tuck in Baltimore's kind of the best example of that. And certainly a rare bird, no pun intended there. Gary to Facebook live feed says I'd rather keep bread mater, and that's another option if you'd rather save two million dollars allocate that towards an extra defensive tackle towards an extra linebacker towards an extra safety. Whoever you want to put that money that is certainly one line of thought. However, and we talked about this with Dan Bailey release and all that that went on over, you know, six months ago now kickers matter and people roll their eyes to say, I don't care doesn't matter kickers, etc. Blah, blah, kickers matter as evidenced again, by the fact, I think about that the games of the Cowboys played in two thousand eighteen they should have been able to kicked a game winning earliest game or have you wanna look at that feelable in Houston against the Texans. Obviously, they punted how that game went down. They did. Have to kick a game winning field. The Detroit Lions they did have to kick a game winning field while against the Atlanta Falcons their game against the Washington. Redskins came down to a field goal kick. The Cowboys played so many one possession games that kicks and field goals and extra points are super valuable. You cannot just have any all generic kicker. I think right now Ben Maher is in the you know, maybe the bottom of the second third of NFL kickers right now. I don't think he's a top third congressional. He's even in the top half. And so you really have to consider what you wanna do there. Because that position is extremely important any position that can influence the number of points or team scores is so valuable and it's so critical. And that's why this question this subject is so interesting because it's not every day that kicker Brian becomes available. Although to be fair it was just last season. The Dan Bailey became available. Although that was in the finalisation of rosters not way early on in February. When teams could really take a cold hard..

"Tony Casillas, Tony, and I talked about the Super Bowl have a couch compared to the patriots Kellen Moore and a whole lot more, no pun intended. It is Wednesday February six two thousand nineteen it is hump day. So happy hump day to you. And we did not have a chance to July on Tuesday my apologies. If you can't tell I'm a little sick a tiny little cold that I'm nursing. And in Tuesday was the worst of it. But it seems to be over thank God. And so here we sit on Wednesday. And it is officially the season that did not change in a matter of forty eight hours, and we have a little bit of news from an NFL wide perspective today on Wednesday. It was announced by by himself. Really that the Atlanta Falcons would not be bringing back veteran kicker Matt Bryant in two thousand nineteen the falcons later confirmed this, and it's been kind of the biggest storyline in the NFL of the day that kind of speaks to the world of the NFL in early February that a kicker not being brought back is is a big storyline. This is big because as Cowboys fans, we haven't had to worry about these types of problems in a long time. It's just kind of been a foregone conclusion that Dan Bailey is going to be the guy. He's going to be the kicker. There's not going to really be any competition of any sorts. But that all changed when the Cowboys finalize their fifty three man roster last season. And Dan Bailey was released in favor of. Brett maher. Now, there are definitely a lot of Brett Maher feigns around Cowboys nation. I think we all know that. But the reality is Brent Maher certainly has his own flaws Maher's field goal percentage in two thousand eighteen his rookie season twenty eight year old plane on a rookie deal are on his rookie season. Excuse me. He was any point six percent successful eighty point six eight zero point six percent successful. Brent Maher was in his first season in the NFL. It's worth noting that in the last three seasons that Matt Bryant has not been below eighty seven point two percent when it comes to his field goal. Accuracy. That's quite a difference meant Brian only missed one field goal last year. They're definitely going to be a lot of teams who are going to be interested in Brian's services. I think you look at the Chicago Bears, obviously would have with Cody park. You could be very interested. Maybe in the Minnesota Vikings who signed in Bailey after the Cowboys cut him, but more than anything. I think. What should be mentioned because Brett Maher does have a bit of a deep leg. I think we all saw that at different times. And Brent Maher suddenly came in clutch for the Cowboys. He had the big game winner against the Detroit Lions, and coincidentally because we're talking about that Bryant had the game winner in Atlanta against the falcons, although he obviously did hit one off the upright in crunch time against the Washington Redskins after that snap and fraction. But looking where were mar struggles. Specifically, it's between attempts of forty and forty nine yards. Brent Mars attempting the field between forty and forty nine yards as a little rough for Brett Maher. He went seven of eleven their last season's four misses between forty and forty nine yards for whatever reason Brett is just a little bit more accurate from beyond the arc so to speak now in that range from forty to forty nine yards. Matt Brian has actually been pretty solid in the last three seasons. He is twenty-five of twenty six between forty and forty nine yards. So Matt Bryant kind. Has the range that Brett Maher struggled with down to a pretty accurate level? And again, this is new territory for the Cowboys because they have not had to consider different picking options, and they kind of lucked themselves into Brent Maher last season..

"As we countdown to kickoff of week eleven and our tour continues at Mercedes Benz stadium where the falcons at four and five take on the Cowboys at four and five as well. And here is Jeff Zell Jeff good afternoon. How you doing? I'm doing just great. The falcons were doing great until last week. Yes, they are really Dr Jekyll mister high team. Let's say this. This is an elimination game. Let's face that whoever goes before and six is Al Dallas is not one two in a row this year last week. They got their first road win. Now, we're talking about the jecklin high chain. Yes, the Jones our Dr Jekyll against the NFC. They play with precision like doctor there too and one against the NFC south there too and one against the NFC east, in fact, if they win today that means you're Rian wanted to see NFC, but you know, what they're Mr Hyde and all the worst impulses come out against the AFC. Oh and three they lost at home to the Bengals. And they lost on the road to the Browns. That game was the Browns. Biggest. Since two thousand fifteen niche ran all over them. He hawked pass all over them. Twenty carries one hundred seventy six yards and a touchdown. Three catches thirty three. Touchdown. You better bet reg, it's going to be as equal Elliott left Ezekiel Elliott, right? Ezekiel Elliott up the middle Ezekiel up down everywhere. That's what they're going to do today. Now, there's no Dion Jones, even though he's off. I are. He's still an active talk is get Matt Ryan back. You will kick Georgia to Vecchio was great in his absence. And remember the Cowboys do not have Sean Lee. But remember last year? The south is the Cowboys played at Mercedes-Benz at the time time of year and the falcons really turned it around in that game. I was getting lost. Devante freeman. They had a great game. Cowboy started with a very impressive scoring drive in the falcon shut him down after that. Yeah. They won twenty seven seven last year. And obviously that was a springboard in the second half. Again, both teams no margin for error. Here. You talked about Ezekiel Elliott coming off a one hundred fifty yard rushing day in a touchdown. But Amari Cooper has certainly giving them another guy to balance things out as much as you said, they might focus on Zeki will Elliott Amari Cooper in this one, you know, going up against another former Alabama receiver Julio Jones how much of a spark do you think there is Cooper in his new home? Well, obviously with land is secondary. It's always a potential for someone to have a career game. Let's face it. I mean, both safeties are out Ricardo Allen this out. And we know that the falcons aren't near as good without their quarterback on defense Kiana dealers out. They don't have the Jones playing in the middle. True flop and offered have really had a lot of really bad games. These two guys with the top two picks a couple of years ago. True funding Dont'a Pro Bowl level last year. He got hurt. He just hasn't been. In the same coming back. I mean, you're right. I think they will try to establish the runs. Remember the falcons really shutdown Barclay with the giants and they've shut down Adrian Peterson with the Redskins. But then shut came back and just kill them. The running back out of the back sealed every week has career days against the falcons. And so we went to secondary going Amari Cooper. We'll be something the Cowboys will do. So they're going to have to weapons and how they mix it up. And what they can do is obviously like it did against the Redskins. They look great. Now, we got fourteen points on the roads with team that six and three they play like did against the Browns. They're gonna lose back to back road games though for the Cowboys coming off the emotional win last week over Philadelphia. You know, how do they respond? Well, you know, you always wonder about that. Because you so, you know, hey, things are pros. They both four and five. This is a do or die elimination game. They gotta get up. But on the other hand as you said they had this emotional win against division rival the eagles human beings. And look there's a lot of controversy in Atlanta. This week. I don't know if nationally how are you guys are on it. Let's laundry Campbell came out and said he's been new quarterback on defense with a Ricardo Allen out. And he said, hey, I think a lot of guys didn't give full effort because they took the Browns for granted that it's just a talking point this week. And I I give kudos for that. 'cause Atlanta it's a sports town where people can get away with not giving their all. And the sports media is very very meek doesn't do anything not like New York or Boston or San Francisco or Detroit or Chicago, really anywhere. And he came on he said and he didn't back down. And it was clear that there were guys that did not put forth the kind of effort that they should've had out there. They were not up to the game say how could they not be up for a game? It was an elimination type of game when you're four and four, but they weren't up for it. So you can never guess what's in the heart. If somebody remembers way back when the falcons were were three hundred five hundred or I said to you. Hey, the road back when the two home games. Against you know, at what gets the giants and the other game against the buccaneers. Then split on the row. Now, you would've said if they do that we're happy with that. But then you saw the play great against the Redskins. So you're now expecting more and they just completely lay in Eric against the Browns. So now, you're disappointed, but it'd been backwards. They lost a close game to the Redskins. And then beat the Browns you'd say, okay. They're on their target. If they got to win this game to get five five and they have New Orleans on the road on a Thursday. They have one more loss left. You can't expect to get in any worse than ten and six. So they play Thursday on the road that should be one game where they say we might not win this game. One more thing. Obviously Matt Bryant you said he's back today. Giorgio tobacco Vecchio is an active with Brian's age, despite the fact that how good he's been do. They view Vecchio as the successor. You know, I really don't think. So they look at it that way because if they did they might have just kept Vecchio going. I mean, the thing is how do you hide a second kicker. Do you keep the second kick or you don't do it in a fantasy young? You don't do it in the NFL either. So what what's going to happen? I mean, he has looked great right? You don't feel any sense of diminishing returns when you have to Vecchio in there. But the reality is not Bryant's one of the greatest kickers in the history of this league. He's been unbelievable falcons. They've got him under contract. They're paying him. Certainly think of Matt pliant can't go they're gonna wanna use Vecchio. That's why I think they didn't just cut tobacco. They've they've got a kick on me and acted. How often do you see that? With a backup kicker stays on the inactive list because they know he'd be snatched up, but certainly Bryant can't go. Yeah. You go to Vecchio, but the Matt Bryant, you know, as long as she's able to get out there and kick he hasn't missed a field goal this year. Well, he helps being indoors Jeff. We'll touch base after kickoff. Thanks for checking. Thank you. Bye. Jeff Zell in Atlanta Cowboys and falcons getting ready to go. Also, another half hour away, the buccaneers and the giants the G men looking for back to back wins and Mike Mancuso checks in from MetLife stadium. Mike good afternoon and high rich, I think you and I are ready to go and give good effort. Right. I hope so. If not we might not be back. Anyway, just you know, weatherwise just to kick kick it off with this rich. It's, you know, low forties not much wind at this point. If it was a four o'clock game. It would be different. So conditions are pretty good for this game between the giants and Tampa Bay. I would think so and a lot to get to in this one the giants coming off the win in San Francisco a much needed one. But two franchises really struggling right now and desperate and you have a big injuries Levada David out today for the buccaneers which may be opened up a little more than the passing game. Especially for the tight end in the giants. You would think, but at this point, you know, whether or not whoever's playing or not playing I'm looking forward to seeing Jason Pierre Paul go against his former team, but you look at the numbers in the nine games. Tampa Bay is given up thirty points plus in six of the games. So, you know, whoever they've been dressing whoever's missing this defense has. Not played. Well, he played well last week and losing to Washington sixteen to three but for the giants, and I I might be off by a point or two but whenever the giants offense onto LA. Manning is played against the team that on average allows thirty points a game. They seldom reach thirty points on the offensive event. Having said that I think the giants do have significant amount of confidence coming off that Monday night game with the last minute drive to to pull it out. Get them their second win. And I think they're really concentrating on trying to win a home game four at home. They haven't really been dominant home team since this building opened up in twenty ten. In fact, you have thirty four and thirty four so yes, I think that the bucks defense poses opportunities or presents opportunities for the giants. But you have to remember the giants and their offensive line which played decently last week away management sacked thirty two times. And that is a staggering number. Almost a staggering is the amount of turnovers. Tampa Bay has so. You know, who knows where this game goes as you mentioned the sax adding up and the offense of lion being what it is. And you also mentioned Jason Pierre Paul coming back to face his former team that was a big storyline throughout the week. It seemed it was a little animosity or a little tension between the two sides is the way it ended. He was just shipped off. And that was it goodbye. Thanks for everything. We'll see soon and here he is today. Yeah. And you know, don't let the door on the way out. But I I think though, he, you know, he JP did have a little fun with that, you know, talking about how much he respected Eli manning. And but that he was coming after. But he made it clear to heal. I was one of the guys that texted him, and they reached out after the trade and he's had a good year. I mean, you know, they'll wind them up all over the place. But I think that the giants, and they sold their have to really be prepared because I think AP's going to be really pumped leaving an impact on this game today. So I think the giants would be wise to watch out for him. And you know, what's interesting is you do your homework for the gaming easy with the bucks done on offense piling..

"Giorgio tha Vecchio was outstanding in that giant's game for guy that just gotten signed is the most successful kicker in the NFL since I guess the nineteen sixties to just come off come off being a free agent in sang with team hitting those kinds of Phil goals. I think the team has not cut him for a very specific reason, which is because they got him on contract in two thousand nineteen right now it's a two year deal with Matt Bryant ailing and him being forty three and kicking fifty yard or in hurry his hamstring. We think. He'll be back this week. We don't know that for sure I think the fact that he's not that the fact that the tobacco villain the roster indicates for sure it is status doubt this week. But also at the same time. It's like the falcons you had this guy come out really, really good. Like, he does a really good job as a proven kicker and your other kicker is in his mid forties. Almost what do you do there? I mean, do you let money go earlier than anticipated you run with tha Vecchio? I mean, do you let to ECU finish the season put that Bryant on our if things are specially are not going the way that you would hope in see if he could really be your future because again, the kicking in the NFL is really bad unless you're really good at it. I know that sounds like the most obvious statement. But it's like if you're not good at kicking. If you are good at kicking great teams. Don't have that kickers is one thing the constant. If you have a good kicker typically means there's a good team. Team that new to get back with kicker. So tha Vecchio could be that guy for the next ten fifteen years. You really think -lanta as much Matt Brian has been crucial to this franchise or you let the money man, go out the way he wants to let Vecchio stick around this year and go elsewhere next year on Roma to kickers next year. There's just it's difficult for them to be in because a Matt Ryan health. But what what would you do if you without? Yes. So I mean, this has been a topic that's sort of been like elephant in the room. No one's really talking about it so far. But it's it's there, and it's it's you know, we've got address it soon. I mean, there's absolutely a kicker controversy in Atlanta. And so the way I see the rest of the season shaping out at least, I think we're going to let Matt Bryant rest as long as he needs to you know, recuperate as long as he needs to those soon as he tows in quid. Hey, I'm one hundred percent ready to kill. I think we're gonna bring that. Right back in Giorgio has been amazing. And it's really great that we managed to find someone who really, you know, saved our skins this last game. And he definitely has the resume to be the guy to carry us forward in the future. But you know, right now with all that Matt has done I think he's still he's still the the guy he still money into Matt starts to see a significant decrease in production. I don't think you know, we'll give that the reins over Georgia just yet. But I can actually see us carrying two kickers next season because of a map Bryant's age, and and at this age, you don't know how quickly that decline come for some, you know, if you're Tom Brady does the client. We haven't even notice it yet. But you know, Matt Bryant's kicker, and it's his production has been great so far. But if once it starts to dip, I think Georgia will absolutely be the gotta take over if it's, you know, within the next season or to otherwise, you know, Matt Ryan guy, George go to another team and.
