"Is new apparently a few cowboys stars are signing this coalition urging Congress to pass the Amish Presley bill which would end the qualified immunity for police officers explained that a second but dak Prescott Amari Cooper and former legend the markets where all part of this coalition of fourteen hundred sports figures your breeze Tom Brady are also on this Steve Kerr Gregg Popovich but what this would do the Amish Presley bill it would basically it would eliminate this immunity for police officers to be sued like right now he a police officer can avoid being sued for using excessive force if the court says yeah but there's not really a similar case that happened before so we're gonna let them off the hook right now there's provisions that kind of protect officers in
Cowboys may use both tags on Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper
"The final year specifies that each of the NFL's thirty two teams can use both the franchise and transition tags this particular offseason that historic guarantee. If you don't know what that is you know franchise in transition tags in general I mean we. We have all sorts of information if you really want to understand the depths of them but in general the franchise and transition tag are ways that NFL teams can protect players that are set to be free agents. If you don't WanNA player to hit free agency you don't want me hit the open market. Bam you slapped a franchise or transition tag on them and typically generally only one is available to each NFL team so you have to pick which player you want to place a franchise tag on right or transition. Whatever the movie and so the fact that all. Nfl teams would be able to utilize both of them. This offseason really served as an incredible asset for the cowboys wrote about this last year. We wrote about this in March. Nineteen how we talked about then. Hey next offseason. The cowboys could have this really awesome tidbit in the that was the title of the article. That could really help them. Because of the cowboys find themselves in a position and we we kind of forecast this year ago where they have three big players that new contract extensions that are set to be true free agents Dak Prescott Amari Cooper and Byron Jones. You knew that and so while you can shake combination however you want in all likelihood the Dallas cowboys were going to Franchise Tag Prescott because it seems incredibly unlikely that deal done before that happens. Before the franchise tag deadline and then they were going to place the transition tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones. Whoever you believe more likely personally I believe it was Amari Cooper but that would prevent both of those players from hitting the open market. Which means the cowboys could protect them. That's a big deal in. It seems like in this again. My personal opinion and and other people it'd be to share these thoughts and certainly a lot of our readers and commenters and listeners but a lot of people had kind of sort of made the assumption that the cowboys have accepted that they're going to lose Byron Jones. And you know what I think. I think I speak for all of us. That are listening. Here we're all gathered around the campfire. You know what if the cowboys is Byron? Jones not ideal but at least they have Dakhil these they have. They can figure this out. Maybe they spend their first round. Pick on cornerback. Whatever not trying to get to far into those weeds but the ability to keep both deck and Amari was and is a gigantic advantage. That the cowboys have going for them. How ever if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached in so far again at the time of this recording. We have the half that the owners have to comply with if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached it will essentially rendered the ability for teams to use both tags moot and they will revert to normal circumstances where there can only place one tag on one player. Now if you have not out by now you need to know that this hypothetical world which is I would say somewhat imminent in somewhat inevitable based on the rates that the collective bargaining agreement is happening and again as we sit on Thursday night. There's so many players kind of tweeting that they don't like the new. Cba proposal and whatnot so there could be some back and forth but if this is finalized before free agency and there's still a couple of weeks and those are going to be very important weeks then. Dak Prescott has all of the leverage in the world and all of the leverage in the world and we touched on this at the end of Thursday's episode because if that's the case and you and I were representing Dak Prescott. Then guess. What our point in our proposal to Jerry Jones Stephen Jones in the cowboys organization? Hey Dude if you don't if you don't get a deal done with us if you don't give deck all the money's basically you're going to have to tag them we all know that and if you tag back guess what you cannot tag anybody else if you tag back. Guess what. Amari Cooper and Byron Jones are going to be true free agents. You're going to be competing with the market for them. That is not ideal and other cowboys went from a world where they were probably going to lose one of the two. Probably going to be Byron Jones right to now that could potentially lose both of them which which would be a complete and utter disaster. And you know you can. You can play hindsight's twenty twenty but if the cowboys had just up to their contract offer to Dak Prescott Uruguay. I mean. We're talking thirty. Three thirty four million dollars per year. Everybody freaked out about that last year. That would look like such a bargain out. That's what happens with these deals. We've talked about that Matt Ryan to use thirty million dollars annually. Everybody freaked out now. That looks super cheap. And if the cowboys had done that they would have the ability to use the franchise tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones win this ultimate sort of hypothetical becomes a reality and they would theoretically only lose one. Maybe not even either. So now the cowboys win till the eleventh hour is going to cost them in a literal financial sense where they're gonNA have to pay Dak Prescott more money and it could cost them in the capacity that they are now going to lose Byron Jones. And maybe even Amari Cooper now I should say that there is a a ray of hope. I suppose because you know look you may think this and I don't mean new but I mean I mean other person the other person here my think Jerry Jones is just. You know the cowboys. They don't know what they're doing. They're messing up. But there is a possibility. Because Jerry Jones is typically a big proponent for things like this the specialty. Nfl adding another wildcard round and round and other wildcard teams. A seventeenth game that is upping the value for every NFL owner. Jerry Jones is obviously very involved when I was on. Espn San Antonio on Thursday. We head John Maclean from the Houston Chronicle legendary. Nfl reporter one of the best. Ever do it and I John. I said look you know. Is it possible? The Jerry Jones kind of knew that this was coming that he was going to lose his ability to use both tags and somewhat prepared. Here's John Maclean said on. Espn Antonio John. You mentioned the The franchise transition tag loophole. That may be filled up and unavailable to the cowboys. Now maybe I'm giving Jerry Jones and co a little bit too much of the benefit of the doubt here. But in your estimation do you think that they you know Jerry Jones at least and we don't know the way the votes win but that he would seemingly be at the very least somewhat in support of this which would negate the ability to tag to players if he did not have a plan in place to at the very least keep one or two of these. You know high price three free agents. They have Adak Amari. I'm Byron Jones before the Franchise. Tag deadline that that's a great point. Jerry Jones. One of the movers and shakers in driving this agreement and even though it could hurt him. But I think Jerry all along you can't keep everybody I expect them to Cape Prescott and probably Cooper if Byron Jones those on the market. He's got a chance to be is defensive defensive back in yesterday I think teams are going to line up to give him a record-breaking deal. I don't think they would do that. With the Mario Cooper. There's too many good receivers. It's a great year for receivers coming out the draft. It's a good year for corners. If you don't mean Horn and the top after the first round so say they let Burne Jones go say the replacing with a cheaper free agent or they go after a corner in the draft and they can even train them they might have their pick of all of them no big deal John Maclean said it was a great point no big deal deal no big deal but anyway I think that if you're looking again if you're trying to be positive trying to be optimistic. I think there are two things to note one is that this is not probably not a surprise to cut the cowboys. Brass right like they had to have known that the collective bargaining agreement could be You know a a new one could be struck and therefore the ability that they were potentially leaning on to utilize both tags would be rendered moods and so they had to potentially be prepared for that. Maybe they all prepared for that. Maybe the preparedness is the preparedness to lose both Byron Jones in Amari Cooper. Who knows the other thing is that Adam schefter head tweet about this where he said Some something to the effect of if there's a new CBA expect a flurry of roster moves. And it's possible that you know we. We've heard so much about how different players in different guys and especially quarterbacks are awaiting the new CBA strike new contracts because they want a piece of whatever. The new percentages that players are going to get and whatnot and so we'll see so it also is possible that maybe the deal lanes right after the new. Cba struck because maybe DAX team is waiting for a new CBA to all to make their move. So who knows? But that's the positive side of things if you're trying to be positive so it is what it

"And happy New Year nothing but love and joy and blessings for you guys except for. I hope. You're a little bit bummed on Sunday the week after next week but other than that you know Lovejoy lovejoy in good times for all of you all right so. Rj gave you his thoughts on how he sees things going on Sunday afternoon. Let me give you my thoughts on how this thing's GonNa play out on Sunday. And I wish I had a real strong feel for this game one way or the other because my mind is telling me to take the Dallas cowboys. The the cowboys have more talent on paper their win against the Rams Rams on Sunday afternoon was incredibly impressive. That's the cowboys team. We all thought we were GONNA see this year. That's the cowboys team. We really should have been seeing weekend and week out and you wonder why. Why haven't you seen that cowboys team? More often this season because they have the talent they have the players they have the tools to be one of the better teams in the NFC FC and yet for for many weeks they. They've been lousy and the eagles have excuses for being lousy. They've they've been hit by the injury bug. Gone offense defensively. They don't have they don't have great personnel and that is the big worry for me. I'm not as concerned about the eagles offense going up against the cowboys defense. Although that will it'll be a challenge. The th the prospect of Dak Prescott Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott against this defense. Terrifies me given how the eagles have given up points to the giants and to Washington over the last couple of weeks teams without a whole lot of talent. The cowboys have way more talent offensively than those two teams. The Eagles have never been able to stop Ezekiel Elliot. He runs all over them. The Eagles tackling has been terrible. This season they if they could just wrap guys up. They would solve a lot of these problems. But they they're they're terrible tackling. They have not been able to get to the quarterback and this is where I mentioned this briefly with R. J.. This is where the eagles are are. I think is the most important match up of the game. How can the eagles? Let's get pressure with their four man front on Dak Prescott. Because here's the problem. That Prescott does well against the blitz so if you bring extra attackers he's GonNa find the open man and he's GonNa find his hot read and this team cannot play press coverage. They cannot play man-to-man coverage they will get beat. Deep by Amari cooper arm or Michael Gallup they will they will get beat if they play man to man if they if they blitz a lot. We've seen it happen week after week after week. So Jim Schwartz has to play zone. He has to to play. He asked to play soft cover to cover three and if he does that. You're depending on your defensive line to win their reps against a talented cowboys offensive line and I think the eagles are going to have Derek Burnett back on Sunday which will help but Derek Barnett and Brandon. Graham and Fletcher Cox have not been winning being the one on one battles for most of the season and when they have the quarterback been getting the ball out too quickly for them to be able to get there because they play in soft zone. So I don't know how they get pressure on Prescott probably bring the occasional blitz and maybe one or two of them get home and you sack Prescott and maybe you can force assim into a fumble or a turnover because Dak will turn the ball over and we know. The Eagles have struggled getting turnovers. They has Michael Kissed. Likes to say have of Butts for hands when there are interception opportunities there. The Eagles will find a way to to use their fists to smash the ball into the ground. Whether that rather than haul it in or or they'll they'll be unable to win those fifty fifty battles as we saw against the dolphins over and over again. So that's my nightmare. Is this cowboys offense doing exactly what. Rj said putting up thirty points. On this defense I can see it happening in my mind. That being said I think the eagles have a huge advantage here on the coaching side. Doug Peterson his work. These last last couple of weeks finding a way for the eagles offense to score points has been nothing short of miraculous. What the Eagles have gotten from Greg Ward Mile Sanders? Boston Scott have been nothing short of miraculous accuracy and I think Carson wentz is on a real roll right now. He's got to protect the ball. He's gotta be. He's gotTa have better pocket awareness but I think the eagles will manage to score points on the cowboys. I think the eagles will keep this close and frankly the cowboys last couple of wins against the cup wins against the Eagles especially the two games in Dallas the the cowboys have benefited from Early Eagles. Turnovers early mistakes going their way The benefit of the benefit of calls by the referees in early early in Games has gone their way to that kind of stuff is not sustainable over the long term. I don't think the eagles are GONNA be a turnover machine early in this game if they are if they give if they turn the ball over early. They're they're not GONNA win. They've got no chance because the cowboys will convert but I think my head is telling me to take the cowboys. I can't do it. I'm going to take the eagles. My heart is is leading me down this path. I think it is a close game. I think the eagles ended up pulling this thing out. Twenty seven twenty four late field goal by. Jake Elliott manages. I just put the eagles over the top. I don't feel confident at all in that. Pick but I just don't have the heart to pick the cowboys here so I will take the birds to beat the cowboys in this. This playoff type game for them here in week sixteen and then of course. The Eagles need to finish things up by beating the New York giants in week. Seventeen but we'll jump off that bridge if we get get to it. Can I if the cowboys win. The Eagles season is essentially over. That'll do it for this edition of eye on the enemy.

Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though

"Watt and the rest of that wrecking crew that they have there what the texans are moving on with contract negotiations still looming for dak prescott. Amari cooper zeke elliott cowboys owner. Jerry jones is not worried. He's preaching patients. Should the cowboys have a sense of urgency in locking up the big three no no absolutely not because if they rushed to it they're gonna make a mistake. It's already going to be tough enough to build a pull it off over the next year and a half the only way this is gonna work if they get zeke to say hey man my contract demands man's we'll do that next year. Amari take the franchise tag and let's try to work out a reasonable deal for that but everything nothing is leaning in favour accepted amari. I said i'm not in a rook. Dakhla over thirty million and zeke wants to reset the market as a running back. They got problems on the way and this won't be worked out in the anytime soon and of the three players here's the only one that proven as top of the league is position or even close to it is zeke. He's also the one with the most off field issues in fact he's the only one with any off field issues and the most years left on his contract so it doesn't coincide with their priorities his priorities i think they would be best served if that continues continues to keep his demands at such a high level to walk away from the table with that prescott and say priced too high will revisit this later. I don't know if that's going to work with zeke all right. Let's move move onto the packers now. All one hundred fifty eight aaron rodgers starts have come under one head coach so when green bay brought in a new young up and coming rookie coach and matt leflore lower this off season rumblings immediately began to the tune of could these two coexist but if he asks scare rogers the relationship is the least of his worries race you have to set aside your ego and sensitivity and communicate honestly about <hes> your feelings and then know who the boss's i think he said it best the other night. I made a kind of a crack about it. Uh we have a great line of communication. I'm not sitting here wishing people. I wish she just knew this. I don't care. I don't need to go out improve to anybody how great matt nagy around him stand up there n._c._a._a. Out great it's been we're having a great time. We're communicating and conjecture is for click bait news stories. You guys can put on your website sir. Why laughing say he's a funny guy. He's he's. He's a funny guy. I do like a portion of the sound bite there and as far as he doesn't doesn't have to prove that him and nicole get along. Nobody nobody care too care about brady umbrella check system as we know the bosses and we know they get the job done now people. We'll try to have these questions. Who's more deserving of the credit. Who's more responsible today. It don't matter you got one boss. He's the head coach as long as aaron. Rodgers richard knows that whenever their relationship is it doesn't matter it's about the results. Are they going to be a physical football team. Are they going to run the ball and utilize the running. Back is their defense based on all the money they spent going to live up to. They changed the structure of this team. Did it pay off in that in the first off season. Those are the things that are really important for the green bay packers because the green bay packers need to try to get themselves back into the playoff in give that guy a chance to win another super bowl..

"I had that surgery but when you're not out there with your troops this. This is a very good football team. Have you talk about a team that amongst the top four teams that would come from the pack to me. I would pick the coats. Their roster topped about in their defense can get a little bit better. They could be there in miami and watch these highlights. The throws five touchdown pass theater. Five big passes three of them. He's on the move. I mean i understand he obviously can just drop back and sling it but stuff like that little mobile out of the pocket roll into his right making a big throw down the field the his lack of mobility it wouldn't kill him but it would decrease is overall effectiveness because he's so good on plays like the one we're showing right. There are moving on with contract negotiations still looming for jack prescott amari cooper and ezekiel elliott cowboys owner jerry jones isn't worried in his preaching patients knicks are the cowboys have a sense of urgency in locking up the big three certainly wouldn't have a sense of urgency when it comes to matching what appears dak prescott prescott wants. I think they've made a more than fair offer and adapt wants to make it to where they have a justified reason to walk away from negotiations pay him two million dollars this year and deal with it next season to that would be a godsend now zeke because he's not there is forcing a sense of urgency. The question is can they bridge leads the gap which appears to be around three to four million dollars per year of a gap and untold guaranteed dollars in a gap but with dak. I wouldn't have a sense of urgency. He's under contract trek tonight think that it would be good for them to get another season worth of information on jerry. Jones is the best negotiated they happen n._f._l. But i am concerned because they're no oh good deals out there to be had a maurice and i'm going to be patient so that to me leads to a franchise tag that has already asked for more than thirty million so ain't no good deals out there and zeke has asked to reset the running back market so no jerry better be patient because if he signs that deal early bad deals assigned early so no jerry sit ho tight third one there okay to the defensive side in dallas all pro dan robert quinn win appealed his two game suspension for violating the n._f._l.'s p._d. Policy the appeal was denied add that to coming off of surgery to repair a broken left hand and you'd think dallas newest weapon would be hard pressed to find a silver lining but according to quit and this is just part of the journey of this is just life..

"Talk to disease right now I think is an encouraging sign because a couple months back the couple's priorities were to extend dak Prescott and Amari Cooper and you want Smith environ Jones he was a highly progress but right now he's not he can't and we know how important he is to that team we'll see if they could figure out a compromise no you look at the X. back Prescott Amari Cooper as well as he could I think his third on the list personally on a big tax probably number one I go to Marc Cooper number two you know and I think sick with two years left that he can be franchise well I think he's not the priority Amari over Zeke you go with a Mario Rizzi coach I just look at the effect he had when he would he would he was taken in and trade up to Dallas and how much they jump in third down percentage as far as conversion rate and then what he did for their passing game gives a mismatch they did not I might give your someone who's been in front offices is made these types of decisions he's had to rank things in terms of priority and importance where you land here I grew close fox he would be third for me yeah for similar reasons from a standpoint of on the field you go back to the tree they were seven two after they made the trade for Marc Cooper first in the NFL on third down as you Lou to coach but more importantly one of the things that's interesting from GM's perspective is one of your audiences is the locker room and they're gonna hold you accountable for your actions when you have a winning quarterback that done everything right not only on the field but off the field so my like Amari Cooper who's been exemplary as well you have to take care of them first because if you pay Ezekiel Elliott with two years to go on his contract you're saying that that behavior is acceptable it's not saying the wrong message your franchise and you say he's got two years.

"I'm Michael size more, you know, folks, you can find me on Twitter at Mr. Sizemore, and with me, as always he has the aren't Anderson to my RIC flair. He is the Walter Matthau to my Jack Lemmon. He is Tom rile, and we're just gonna get focused talking about the Dallas Cowboys. It's been a few weeks since we've been with you guys. But the Cowboys are getting ready set for their mini camp. They already have rookie minicamp and everything went well from what we gathered except for the fact that Mike Weber got a little dinged up. But they, they seem to think that that's going to be not, not such a big deal, but I wanted to get into contract talks Tom because guess it's been contract. Doc all off season long. So what do you think about the Cowboys contracts right now and mover specifically those for extensions for deck Prescott Amari Cooper, Zeke Elliott? Well. I think that the Elliott one is kinda going to be after they look at interest got I felt all along partly because it got the fifth year option to work with, and they don't have to have anything done. Now, this is just about being smart giving him done before the price tag goes up even more, you know, it's going to be expensive. That's just part of it right now, the Steven Jones kinda posh during trying to get them to maybe take a little bit less which I am not too sure that even really worth their time. They just need to start figuring out how they're going to do it. But the one thing this happened lately, as it were seeing another cycle just like we saw with, DeMarcus Lawrence, this is around Amari Cooper, their reports. It everything's that a deadlock nothing has happened on this. These are the exact kind of things were being said, during the DeMarcus Lawrence negotiations. And as it's turned out those were true at Nala were they not true, but they actually kind of created friction between the two sides, 'cause both sides thought the other side was leaking stuff. Yeah. I remember that. And I remember that it took the, you know, the Cowboys ended up talking to markets Lawrence's agent and kind of smoothing things over, because a lot of those reports were premature or false yet, and it shouldn't have happened..

"The one thing that I'm looking at though is there's three guys that need to get paid big dollars. We mentioned that Prescott Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott razor three guys who need to get paid. But the two guys who are free agents at the end of this year, our deck in Amaury, if I don't get the number that I want and if I'm their agents, we want to get the top dollar for our player because we also want to reset the market. What if both of those guys decide to reject their offers and force the Cowboys hand into having to franchise. One because you franchise one. You can't franchise the other. You put Amari Cooper on the market right now. He's getting top dollar as a playmaker. You put deck Prescott on the market right now. How many teams in the NFL right now would not pay him would pay him? Thirty million dollars say we've got our position locked up. We don't have to worry about next year's draft class. We've got a proven winner. We put a run game around him a couple of play makers a good defense that team went to the playoffs. Two of his first three years. That's what the Cowboys are right now in for. I know people may not want to hear that. But you gotta pay hardball ball little bit. Because teams do it now players need to as well. All right. A couple of things off this. How many teams do you think would be in the market for Prescott? Wow. Going into next season. I would say, wow, it really the way. This thing has to play out. You got a couple teams could the Oakland Raiders be one of those teams of Derek Carr. Doesn't play. Will you look at a team? Like, the Detroit Lions, maybe they move off of Matthew Stafford you know, what? I mean think about this an Atty. Cincinnati the so you've got a quarterback and still in its infancy stages in the National Football League that after this year, I've got a proven commodity would a ton of upside..

"Let's take a trip around the NFL real quick guys. One of the big free agent defensive players that was still looking for a home Ziggy Ansah he appears to have one looks like he's headed to Seattle on a one year deal Kirk what do you make that move for the Seahawks? Well, it's a low risk high reward type of deal because you sign him after the may seven deadline will you know, to where it doesn't mess up the compensatory picks for the Seattle Seahawks. So now signings after that may seven eight they still get the keep their compensatory picks for losing free agents and not signing enough reagents back. They signed him. I'm at a point where Ziggy Ansah last year on the franchise tag Detroit off injured. I don't even know he didn't play a full sixteen games. So basically you get hopefully a full sixteen autumn Seattle. But he kind of gives you a little bit of I guess a presence now that you've lost Frank Clark. Who goes to obviously, Kansas City. So now you have that defensive in it you need at pass rusher. Some say a low risk high reward one year deal hopefully it works out, but they're going to be obviously working on the cheap now because of what they just paid their quarterback. Russell wilson. Do you think that Russell Wilson contract is going to? Slow them down to rail them because we've seen like these teams that have paid big money for these quarterbacks in a Matt Stafford Matt Ryan some of these other quarterbacks cetera. Dallas Cowboys going to do it with that Prescott soon. Do you think it's going to you know, we've seen kind of the end of this Seahawks? Ron because they're going to be paying so much money to Russell Wilson. No. I don't think. So I think right now you take Russell Wilson off that team there every year picking in the top ten because they're not a playoff team. Russell wilson. Makes that team every year a legitimate contender not only in the NFC west. But also a team that I just don't wanna play in the one thing I'll give John Schneider and also Pete Carroll the head coach of the Seahawks. I give them credit. They draft will and they draft well late rounds. I know it's already been you know, kind of undocumented already, but that decay Metcalf in a second round. I mean, that's a huge pickup for them. They got wide receivers. They've picked up a couple of linebackers as will remember they don't rebuild. Everybody's always talk about rebuild rebuild revealed allocate Seattle, and I'm saying they don't reveal. They just reset. You know what I mean? They let goal. Frank Clark Ziggy Ansah for the cheap. And look if he comes in and plays. Well, it gets ten sacks got an elite pass rusher that you feel like so to me it's never about the contract for Russell Wilson. They basically shifted from what once was the legion of boom right to now. It is. Russell Wilson's true team. Russell I got there. It was a legion of boom seen now. It's Russell Wilson Seahawks rather than a team being led by their defense. And it's kind of like Ben Rothlisberger. He was just kinda keeper of the flame that Steelers. When he first got there during the first run Russell kind of the same way kinda volving now to being an offense first team like so many others in the NFL. Once you've got that joker card, man. That wild card as long as you got that one. You think hey, I'm good. We could just put pieces around. But we got the major piece already said we talked about a Cowboys earlier in the week with Michael Irvin and here guest hosting. I wanna get your take on some of this stuff. But first we had Jerry Jones on and he talked about potentially paying Dak Prescott the big time quarterback money. We're sold them. Dak and we do won't tab him for the long term. We think he's worthy of investing in for the long term. We love the way that he he used the word logically progresses through a game for you see when he's got to come from behind when he kind of turns it loose a little bit. You seem make those plays all of those things Imboden may to make a deal with him that puts him here with the Cowboys for the long term. Yeah. And the Cowboys had begun contract negotiations with that Prescott. Annemari Cooper, Stephen Jones said this yesterday. Do you think so we've been having this debate kind of on and on do you think that Prescott worth thirty million dollars per season? It's not about is. He worth it to me is about what does he mean? To that team. He keeps you stable at that position your quarterback. So is he worth thirty million in the landscape of the NFL? Maybe not. But to the Dallas Cowboys he's worth thirty million because he keeps that position stable. You're not worrying about half drab Daniel Jones, and Dwayne has friends and Kyla Murray. You've already got that chip you've already got that piece. The one thing that I'm looking at though is there's three guys at need to get paid big dollars. We mentioned that Prescott Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, rancher three guys who need to get paid. But the two guys who are free agents at the end of this year our deck in Amari, if I don't get the number that I want and if I'm their agents, we want to get the top dollar for our player because we also want to reset the market. What if both of those guys decided to reject their offers and forced the Cowboys hand into having to franchise. One because you franchise one. You can't franchise the other. You put Amari Cooper on the market right now. He's getting top dollar as a playmaker. You put deck Prescott on the market right now. How many teams in the NFL right now would not pay him would pay him? Thirty million dollars say we've got our position locked up. We don't have to worry about next year's draft class. We've got a proven winner. We put a run game around him a couple of playmakers. Good defense that team went to the playoffs. Two of his first three years. That's what the Cowboys are right now in for people may not want to hear that. But you gotta pay hardball little bit. Because teams do it now players need to as well. All right. A couple of things off this. How many teams do you think would be in the market for Prescott? Wow. Going into next season. I would say, wow, it really the way. This thing has to play out. You got a couple teams could the the Oakland Raiders be one of those teams of Derek Carr. Doesn't play. Will you look at a team? Like the Detroit Lions. Maybe they move off Matthew Stafford you know, what? I mean think about this an Addy Cincinnati the so you've got a quarterback and still in its infancy stages in the National Football League that after this year, I've got a proven commodity with a ton of upside. I don't think that Prescott has reached his full potential yet. I think he's still he's going to have a new offense coordinator this year. I think there's going to be able to bring out more of his skill set. There may be teams in the market for Dak Prescott as a free agent. I don't have to give up draft compensation to get him. And I keep my draft picks. Oh, yeah. There's going to be a market for Dak Prescott. Yes. Stephen Jones said that he's focusing most of their energy now on getting extensions for jacket Amari Cooper, would like to extend Zeke at some point. Do you think what do you think is more important to Cowboys future success between those three guys Dak Prescott quarterback? All and I know people are going to say well, look at Zeke, Zeke great zeke's been great. He's been awesome. He's been amazing. But the one thing I can tell you is that sometimes the running backs. I'm sorry. They grow on trees and Zeke has been great. But you look at the replacement of running backs every single year. I know bought me I know Pittsburgh didn't go to the playoffs last year. But James Connor was amazing. And they went out and drafted another guy. Benny snail they have backs in Pittsburgh. I think the same thing in Dallas. If they needed to go out and draft another back, you can find a back, especially if you're still using offensive line that you've invested a lot of money in Travis Fredericks coming back Frederickson coming back as well. So you've got pieces, but the quarterback piece why do you think the draft is so big every single year the NFL draft? Is big every single year because of one reason the quarterbacks right people were this draft was just whatever. Yeah. Because after college Murray went down people start hearing all these defensive player, they never even heard of. Yeah. I mean, look somebody. We've never heard of or seen play Danny Jones. It was the sixth overall pick come home. And that's what this league the NFL is built on the quarterback with this. And so when you have one, and you've really feel good about your situation, you wrap your arms around that quarterback. Because you're saying, okay, we're happy with where we're at. Now, we just got to put the pieces around it makes everything a lot better. We'll talk more about this next hour with with our gas. But just want to get this out quick talking about the Lakers the bomb earlier and his wraps turned down the Lakers offer Tuesday. Sources told agent was rows ski and day mcmenamin. So apparently the Lakers on Wednesday offered a deal three years. Eighteen million tile? Woo after which lose side pulled out in the Goshi nations. Reports war tie. We wanted five year deal with a salary commensurate with his championship resume both as a player while and a head coach. Of course, also one of the one of the crazy things that was mentioned the Lakers have proposed several scenarios for assistant coaches, including Jason Kidd on the staff, and that really didn't sit well with Taiwo so many layers. So many layers tight lose crazy birthday party in Vegas. Brought to the Lakers cakes so many layers to this Brockman, I mean, I guess we can start like this first of all in the Knicks our tiny again Guli LA times she'll be joining us in studio. I'll get hurt thoughts on it. Because remember this week started off with Laker news about the Braun and Lonzo on LeBron's the shot shots. The first Laker comments since they were talking about their reaction to magic abruptly leaving. That was a week long. Laker news right there. Then all of a sudden, you mentioned the wall bomb and you lie, oh, they are no longer in content in contract negotiations. Lakers Tyler Tyler feels disrespected and then who's running the Lakers front office as rob rob Pelinka? Or is it the ram buys? They call it. Now. Rang Kurt Rambis is so many different layers to this in his wife is. This. It is like fascinating now. Because now you open up the candidacy again now, and you have what possible Jason Kidd online Holland's Mike Woodson Mike del tufo, I've heard is throw his name in the hat now. So I don't know. Championship. Every every like, this war's thing is so fascinating. And and to me, it's. If I'm a free agent, and I'm just watching what's going on all Los Angeles. And I've been telling people I think older people outside of the millennials and things like that. They still think that that Laker name across the chest means something not to these younger players that Lakers across the chest. That'll mean, nothing especially when you see all the chaos going on consumption. Now, I'm turning left our sorry. I'm turning right away from that. I'm not going to that. And so that's something. I want to ask our guests coming up next repellents in the NBA champion who took down that former Laker dynasty of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Karl Malone. So I want to ask him as well has he ever been in something like that especially playing in Detroit after they took down a dynasty? And eventually they fill it out there. So I'm going to get the comments. I mean, get the thoughts of rip Hamilton coming up. Is that what the news I saw you got for me. That's it man. It's still a die so much so much to get to. To rip Hamilton the NBA champion coming up next year. Kirk Morrison filling in.

"Coming back it makes me like him more like I would have liked him either way. But there is something to amateurism. I know nobody wants everybody to get paid. But one of the reasons I love certain basketball players Magic Johnson loved the game. And Michael loved the game that is something to. And I think it's a really cool thing that he comes back and he's like these guys I'll play basketball. That is much just because I do have my other feelings about all of that as far as what what these kids do bring to the school and the money that they generate that they don't get any part of. But overall, I like that he's playing I mean, it's it's great for fans. And like I said, it's an experience. He's never going to get again. Whether it's amateurism or not, and it's it's seem out there. And he's dominating. Yeah. The ratings will be out for March madness. By the way, they will be up. Yeah. I mean, there's no question. This kid will literally if he's in the final four you're gonna have your highest final four in a long time. And finally in the past splashy offseason moves were part of the game plan for the Cowboys this off season. They're looking for ways to resign DeMarcus Lawrence Dak Prescott Amari Cooper is Elliott, and Jalen Smith among others and Stephen Jones address that problem he told Sports Illustrated when you figure out how to pay the pass rusher the corners, the receiver the quarterback the running back across the board on the offensive line. And then try to pay a couple linebackers. That's what you have to start getting super create. If you go out and do a deal right now, that's not efficient. You're starting to take some money away. That is hopefully going to help you keep Jalen hopefully, hopefully help you keep both corners, and they had a franchise tag DeMarcus Lawrence. First domino to fall Dakhla likely be next. But the Cowboys are going to have to get very creative. Although I still I still like their chances in in their division with the eagles. Did this off season? We do this every year on paper. It's great. You know, there's going to be some some pressure back. Now Carson Wentz again. So I overall I think the Cowboys are going to figure it out and Jerry seems to be in when now mode he said, so that's a lot of pieces to get get sent out there. There's not a lot of guarantees in the NFL. And I don't think the Cowboys are guaranteed to be a playoff team last year next year, the guarantees Kansas City with Patrick Mahomes is going to be good every year until Patrick Mahomes is in his forties. Andrew luck and the colts. They know what they're doing. New England is going to be good until Brady retires..

None of that transpired this time. Now, you see what they did on seventy nine percent of the past plays. They doubled Aaron Donald in Dhamma Ginsu showed his age. He give I don't know if you noticed it. But the last two games the dominant sue that we have a rookie and when he wants to play can dominate again. I saw ninety three a lot. I did.

I'll just I don't know somehow Super Bowl now has transcended the World Series to me just has. But in the end, how do you fix this because there is a fares and the fix is? You can go Canadian Football League where they allow you to review pass interference. I don't love that until the last two minutes.

If that had gone to review what it not have been quickly overturned photo who's gonna throw the child. So coach the challenge flag.

And that is the blowout. I think we're going to see the blowout. I want. But I think it's the ball out. We are going to see in the NFC dad, and the other one is who who's developing this cowboy confidence to do man. You know what I do? I tell I tell Sean McVeigh. Chicks been looking around, man. You blow home playoff game law famous. Rich dudes in LA. Kingsbury? He's only down the freeway too far away. Listen, man. Here's the here's here's what the problem is going to be down at the Coliseum. It's gotta be lousy where cowboy fans and now we know this right fake Fronton perpetrating cowboy fans. No, no, how Cowboys boo. Boo them Cowboys. We we we need we need cowboy fan parking well away from the call. Can just enjoy the neighboring areas you have any specific places that cowboy fans should visit to the game. I mean to me, and like I said earlier show all the teams that are playing on Sunday Cowboys, they all deserve to be here. That's that's. With the run game they possess that helps Dak Prescott Amari Cooper. You're on of the rip makes them a better team. And that defense at defensive front is good. And it is it is risky. I give them a lot of credit. Remember when the Cowboys play the Niners of the preseason. And we came in that next month. I said Rotman Cowboys get like nine passer, and they all look the same to six four long arms. Rangy? Do I was like is that Randy Gregory is that taco Charles Jalen Smith? Yeah. Well, Jalen Smith getting healthy and Vander esh. Yeah. Yeah. That that defense got real good to me. And the Rams defense has been good. But not as dominant as people thought he would now this year to me. That Rams front. Air Donald the man Dom consume microprocessors you keep you on down the list if they get pressure on back Prescott. Cowboys offensive line is still good. But not great not like it had been over the last couple of years if they give pressure on Prescott because I just think Ezekiel Elliott is going to be able to run the ball. Just because of who he is with the Cowboys do with with that run game in the Rams stopping the run. Not that it's not a priority to just a much better pass rushing team. So to me if they make Prescott uncomfortable heaven be inaccurate. I think the back end of that Rams defense can get some picks. And hopefully that'll get the ball rolling to a to a blowout. But I think more than anything else some McVeigh's, go coach the pants. Offer Jason Garrett. Yeah. You can't tell me Sean, McVay what a week off is going to go into this game. After seeing what the Cowboys could do in the wild wildcard game against Seattle. You can't tell me this, Sean McVeigh and that that weird beard. He has is not going to coach circles around Jason, Gary, I refuse to believe that's not going to be the case, especially especially if we threaten him with losing his girlfriend. So he is in L A. He's a coach a very good football team. I don't think he's going to really worry about that. Jeff Bezos, just became single. He should be. You should be worried. Now. Wow. Hundred plus billion dollars to find the love of your life. Heart wants what the heart was. That's a big check, man. Now, the the AFC games.

I can't charges win and the colts the tenor of that game. The beginning of that game the sixth straight home losses by the chiefs. The fact that those fans by turn on that team start groaning.

"They beat them up in Seattle. And when you really go back and watch the game. Neither team was was affected throwing the football. Both teams could run the ball. Seattle only had one hundred thirteen yards rushing in the game. They were seven for sixteen on third down. And Russell Wilson made a couple of plays. Brandon Marshall actually was instrumental in helping the Seahawks win. He's no longer on the team. So I think when you go back there's two different teams here now. And I think what concerns me in its concern me all year Tate. Frazier about Seattle is their inability to throw the football affectively their twenty ninth in the NFL and passing on second down there. Twenty-seventh net passing yards their twenty seventh and first downs made passing you know, their fifty th the twenty fifth in the NFL. And allowing fifty one sacks. I think the cowboy defense will give them a lot of problems the Cowboys. And like it always is when you play Seattle. The balls to most important thing Seattle's the number one team in the NFL and turnover differential. It's the ball the ball the ball and they're really good in two minutes defense. So the situation defenses outstanding. But I think the Cowboys when you go back and I watched that game couple times this week. I think the Cowboys are playing better than they did then and it was a tough game. Because of the crowd noise in Seattle for their offensive line. I think Dallas wins this game. I think the Clapper comes out. I think that Prescott Amari Cooper. I think Zeke Elliot I think they're going to win this game because they can throw the ball better than Seattle. Even though Seattle has Russell Wilson. Yeah. And it is something to keep an eye on also Bobby Wagner came out and said, the the reason that they've been so successful as a team and as a defense against decks deck Prescott us because they've been able to get pressure on him in that first matchup. They sacked him five times like you said in week three. So they were able to get in his face and make him have to make some tough throws and one other. No Pete Carroll has not lost in India. If the Seahawks make the playoffs they at least one one game that's been they're six for six hundred. Carol with that mantra, and that that ability to be able to do that. So that's a scary sight if you are a Dallas Cowboys fan did know that Caroline team has a belief other. They can go down and beat anyone on the road..

"Can move onto the next one. All right. I love it Saturday night. It's the Cowboys and the Seahawks really looking forward to this one. And the only thing I'll add to what you said about the colts and Texans evidence. Greg Cosell sort of echoed what you said about nine Hines and really liked what they're doing name Hines and things he's going to be a big factor on Saturday. He said that yesterday on the Ross Tucker football podcast. So keep that in mind. And then it's interesting the two guys he talked about for the Cowboys against the Seahawks. Believe it or not we're Cole. Beasley and tape on Austin and thing that they might be factors against the Seattle defense, which I mean, Beasley maybe I was not expecting in the year two thousand nineteen or for him to be talking about tape on Austin potentially being a factor in a playoff game for the Cowboys. Yeah. And take on Austin. I was looking at him. He. He's played in one game sense. Like week six he played in week seventeen. He played. Thirteen snaps. And then. The latest word is that he might not play in this game. So, but I, but I hear you. He would be forced receiver, and he might be like on the receiving end of a shot play or something if they if they play many also obviously plays on special teams. In the return game. I think the better guy to look at is Beasley. I think the better got to look at his Beasley because he. In terms of wide receivers. I'm gonna talk about Blake Darwin in a minute which just in terms of wide receivers if you control for the last four weeks of the regular season. Kobe's Lee has more air yards in more targets than Michael Gallup. And Michael Gallup was a guy who was like kind of on people's radars late in the year. He was you know, theoretically getting some getting a decent number of air yards in November. And he had a couple of decent games. But Colby's Lii was getting more volume than him when push came to shove in the final month of the season. And so you know, what what we want to bet on in fantasy is the volume and just getting the opportunities. And so I would be with Gregg on coldeze Lee. He would be an intriguing sleeper Amari Cooper. You know, can he get it turned around? We could just do dot Prescott Amari Cooper together because they they're splits are really lopsided in terms of home road and in terms of zone versus man defense. You wanna get him at home? Where Amari Cooper is averaged well over one hundred yards per game like one hundred ten yards per game on the road. He's at forty five yards per game. All this is since coming from Dallas. Dak Prescott has been much better at home than on the road. Now, did you have a great road game against the giants on which instill some confidence..

"I saw the sun, and then opened up my eyes saw the side of the sign whatever. But either way the point is there's some great chemistry brewing between Prescott Amari Cooper. I wrote today on Wednesday blog on the boys dot com about that moment. And how I think something very powerful in very important about Amari Cooper in that whole exchange with Dak Prescott is that. And I wanna give credit to Patrick Crayton. Not the former Cowboys wide receiver the Espy nation radio host. He and I were talking about this Amari allow dactyl be the leader in that moment. And by now, you surly know the moment again, if you haven't go listened to July, the sound lockups, oh, you can hear Amari say this Amari allowed Dak Prescott to the leader there. And I think that's really important really says a lot about who the Cowboys are who their leadership is their chemistry excetera, and that really does kind of revolve around. Maury. He is one of the most comb superstars you could ever. See? I mean think about a receiver that had over two hundred seventeen yards and three touchdowns. I mean that was a career day for Amar. He had never had that Machar. She had never had three touchdowns in a game. Branded did go to overtime. And he was just the most calm person that you could possibly be in that moment. That's so unusual that doesn't happen especially with a wide receiver raisons of all in the to be Facebook live feed says that Dak I'm assuming needs to work on deep throat to Michael Gallup. It is true that while Amari Cooper is just partying and scoring willed. It seems the deep ball connection from Dak Prescott. The micro Gallup does not seem to be there. And I got a little bit of a bold prediction. I don't know if it's a bold prediction, technically. But it does kind of feel like because the Cowboys are on such a hot streak. It does feel like that connection is finally going to connect when it matters most it kinda feels like maybe the. I DAT Gallup. You know, sorta homerun we see is in the playoffs because the Cowboys do now have something like a ninety eight ninety nine percent chance of playing in the playoffs. Pretty soon. People. I know you're working on your Christmas lists, you might as well tell whoever's going to be shopping for you, your parents or significant other your friends, your brother, your sister, or whatever the case may be tell them you want an NFC championship t-shirt or cap because it is going to be time sooner rather than later to be getting one of those it will be when it does happen. The third division title in five years for the Dallas Cowboys that really is quite impressive. And you think about that obviously two thousand fourteen garbage on the division two thousand fifteen I think everybody gives them the pass because they lost Tony Romo. Two thousand sixteen was bags EP or two thousand seventeen they did lose eek. I mean, if you want to be fair be objective. They did have Zeke ripped out from under them. And that was a big reason why they did not win the division. Although, obviously what the eagles did was very impressive. Speaking of the eagles, by the way, Ian Rapoport of NFL network reported on Wednesday that Carson wen. Could be done for the season. So the Cowboys kind of kind of broke the will of the Philadelphia Eagles, which is. It is what it is. I mean, you know, it is what it is certainly eagles. It is very difficult to repeat a Super Bowl champs, and they are learning that the hard way, but the tab was I think are sitting in a great position. And what I really want to talk about as we got back today on OJ alive was kind of how things are really repeating for the Cowboys a lot of ways, and I know that date helmet avows, cob dot com. Had some fantastic tweets in the immediate aftermath of the win over the eagles. We wrote about this in the boys if you weeks ago about how the Cowboys are on the.

"I just I think they have to ride. They might have to ride either Dak Prescott Akil Elliott. It really depends on the situation. What do you think will happen though? I don't see them making dent in the saints. I just see this all the way sayings. I think that that saints will take away. Elliot. I truly think that they will stack the wind. I agree. Also, I think they will dare Dak Prescott Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Alan Hearns and the rest of that wide receiver core. They will dare them to throw the football downfield. They will dare Prescott to throw the ball over the top. Because I don't see them letting Zeke Elliott win this game. I don't see them wedding. Zeke Elliot have a huge game. Do I think is he can get one hundred yards. I do I don't know if he will. I could see it happening. But I think it'd be like twenty attempts like Elliott is not going to have seventeen carries for a hundred and thirty yards and two touchdowns in my opinion. I think he he could have one hundred yards, but it's going to become because of all you, right? Like twenty to twenty five carries like four or five yards. A carry. Tough yards. The saints will make them earn everything. And I really think they're gonna make deck Prescott over top. Do you think that Dak Prescott excuse me? And this wide receiver core can take advantage of the Saint secondary. At all, do you. See deck Prescott. Having a good game tonight. Now eight to say, but I just he this the same surges seems to good the Cowboys are coming off a win true. But the fact of the matter is I see they're not playing the Redskins xactly, my total different peace. There. Exactly what I was gonna say the opposite of the Redskins. When you think about it? You got Adrian Peterson is the opposite of Alvin Kamara right like an older running back who's a tough inside runner. He's still pretty good. But he's the opposite. In terms of in terms of how you game plan against them. Yes. Adrian Peterson provides nothing in the past game where Kamara is a weapon Koma Koi. You cannot compare to drew Brees. Exactly breeze is a pass first Eckert quarterback. Mccoy's more of a runner. More of an athlete. More of a throw the ball to my tight ends drew reason Colt McCoy, I couldn't be further apart. So. Is there any way that this cowboy defense led by late and Vander s and that defensive line DeMarcus Lawrence, we know DeMarcus Lawrence had some words to say he had some strong where it's a say about the saints. Do you think that this Cowboys team will step up tonight? And really really I don't I wouldn't say stop the saints. But just limit the saints. He think they can do that. Limit how lake Louis points. Limit yards. Okay. Okay. Limit to them. How many yards think they would limit them? That's question. I'm asking, you know, I'm I'm asking you to see what what you do. Breeze is getting more than three hundred yards. Okay. All right. Well, so the war of words, we talked about it. We know that to Marcus Lawrence and the Cowboys they're not going back down. Back Prescott had words say to that. They're looking forward to this challenge that they're they're going to give the saints fight that the saints should be ready. Will the Cowboys make some noise tonight? Yes, or no. Will they back up these words? No. All right. So what do you think the score will be? I had to make a score between the saints and the Cowboys game. Give me a thirty eight thirty fourteen win. Okay. For the saints. You see a blow out? Do you think that it'll be a book by halftime like double digit point lead by halftime? Or do you think it'll be a later on in the game type runaway type things for quarters. There's giving consistency of great play. I think the saints might start slow. I think there's a chance for that. You know away team going into Dallas Dallas will be motivated. I think they'll I think their energy and their enthusiasm will carry them through the first quarter..
