The Ocho: This is officially Robert Quinn week

"I want to know more about what your favorite Ninjas have on their minds. Check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts. It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen for any Ninja Warrior fan none of the in what world welcome to another episode of the Ocho presented to you in partnership as always with SPF nations blog on the boys dot com my name or Joe. Show you know me of course from an from writer as you're humble host on on the road show it is Wednesday October second two thousand Nineteen Happy Hump Day where you have officially moved on. We're putting that saints loss in the rear view mirror. Nobody wants to talk about it anymore. It is a new week if you saw demarcus Lawrence tweeted and instagram and put it out everywhere that twenty four hour rule is officially in effect act. It's over. It's done with the cowboys lost. It sucks it is what it is but they're three and one they have a very important game on Sunday against the Green Bay packers and that is now the focus how we've talked about this a lot already this week mentioned on the Ocho in on some five. Oh that it is October which means there's a lot of great sports going on We've got postseason baseball big win by the Washington nationals on Tuesday night we'll see who's going to play the Astros on Wednesday afternoon goodness stays or complicated so that will be very very fun and exciting the NBA NBA returns this month so spurs coming back in my life we'll see I know I know but it's GonNa make the playoffs. It's GONNA be alright. Trust me. I've talked myself into it and of course college football rampant knob not to mention. We've got a game in the Green Bay packers. I mean think about this on Sunday afternoon. We're all going to sit. We're all going to watch the DALLAS. Cowboys play the Green Bay Packers Akers in at three o'clock. I mean it does not get any better than that. Man I mean it is a really great time of year in. I'm really excited about this game. I know you're really nervous. Just because everybody wants to see the cowboys back to their winning ways nobody wants to see them fall to three two and that would really kind of set the world on fire given the way they lost to New Orleans but I don't think that happens I mean we. We've heard so far early. Reports seem to indicate that Davante Adams Packer Star Wide Receiver will miss this game and and I know that the cowboys just lost the sense of that drew brees but I feel like that's a gigantic factor. Jerry Jones did say on Monday on. Oh goodness gracious on Tuesday. I wonder if the fan fan I told you days. We're hard that he's not ruling out that Michael Gallup could play and so Michael Gallup playing in this game for the cowboys would certainly be huge especially if Devante anti-atoms does not play as well. You're talking about you know cowboys getting one of their star receivers back while the packers lose one of theirs that that'd be pretty big other pieces of I think interesting information before we get to the meat of today's episode I was looking at at everything kind of associated with the cowboys the season and I saw something that just kind of stuck out to me. Dak Prescott obviously threw an interception in New Orleans on the game's final play that Hail Mary Attempt Ten. I know is a Hail Hail Mary but it is an interception nonetheless from factual and objective recorded perspective and that means the Dak Prescott has thrown an interception in each each of the last three games. Obviously he had the tip pass in Washington and he had the really bad interception against the dolphins and the aforementioned Hail Mary. It is the first time it took fifty two career games. It is the first time in his career the DAK Prescott has thrown at least one interception and three consecutive games he had never done that before he had never had three straight games with an interception recorded. He has that now I know you you can certainly are going to two of the picks. Were not his fault given the one in Washington but you can definitely argue that the one in New Orleans shouldn't count 'cause. It's just kind of a hail Mary but I mean coming from the record books you know air quotes will remember the interception that New Orleans and so it is the first time that he has had an interception in three straight games so far throughout his career speaking of his career Career Dak Prescott sits on nineteen rushing touchdowns. He's got nineteen rushing touchdowns through fifty two career games with his next one when dad kids rushing touchdown number twenty he will tie Roger Starbuck. That's pro football hall of fame quarterback Roger Staubach he will tie him for the most rushing touchdowns in franchise history by a quarterback. Obviously you've got running back to have wellness over twenty but that's pretty cool. I mean I think that's pretty cool so levels of history seemingly on the line nine this Sunday when the Dallas cowboys host Green Bay packers of course read far played for the Green Bay Packers Dak Prescott speaking of interceptions through his first pick on the road at Lambofield uh-huh fueled. If your member there was some great memes when when the cowboys visited Lambofield and twenty sixteen at half time Brett farve and Dak Prescott shook hands as far as being honored because a hall of fame stuff and everything and then in the second half deck came through interceptions so there was all this stuff like he touched Aaron and he immediately threw interception. It was really fun. but Brett Farve Arve has a weekly radio show on Sirius. XM NFL radio in on Tuesday Brett Farve spoke pretty ugly Dak Prescott. Oh yeah that's right breath. Barb is a fan of Jack Prescott in fact Brett Farve. One is far to say I think he's a legitimate longtime quarterback barring injury and at some I'm point. I do believe that he'll lead that team to a superbowl look at that. Brett farve believes in Dak Prescott in the Dallas cowboys through suitable pretty big words man pretty big words coming from number four about another so pretty cool pretty cool for Dak Prescott but obviously this is the latest chapter of cowboys packers. A lot of them have not gone the way that most of us would have hoped If you have followed me long enough you might remember on an old episode Kosovo. Joe Live I even in a in a sort of exorcism exercise cut up a T. shirt. It wasn't a packers to shirt but and when I used to go to football games along time ago I mean I still go but when I would go I used to get you know you had the t shirt that's like the commemorative game shirt you know like all cowboys giants. September eighth or whatever and it has the date and whatever and so I had a shirt from when the cowboys and packers played at at and T. Stadium in two thousand thirteen and that was the Matt Flynn game and so I really hated having that shirt and so I cut it up on July as an extra system to help the cow. I'm I mean do my part but this game will not feature Matt Flynn. Thankfully this game will feature Aaron Rodgers who will feature Prescott Future Skeletal Feature Amari Cooper it will feature a democracy Lawrence and it will feature Robert Quinn and that's who I wanted to talk about today and if you're listening to this and we're GonNa talk about some stuff when it comes to Robert Quinn if you you want a visual aid you can head over to blog on the web dot com because I wrote about this there depending on when you're listening because it's probably not going to be out on the side until about new niche so give it until then probably noon ish central but we'll have the corresponding video clips to go along with everything. We're GONNA talk about so Robert Quinn obviously coming on very strong for the Dallas cowboys. We all know that we all agree with that. Robert Quinn has played in two games for the cowboys he was suspended for the first I too and besides I had the hand injury but Robert Quinn has three sex in his first two games of the Dallas cowboys that is tied for the most sacks any player has has ever had in his first two games with the Dallas cowboys who is tied with. That's an excellent question good job on you. Asking Randy Watts that's right throwback and greg hardy each had three sacks and their first two games the Dallas cowboys the Greg Hardy thing and everybody wants to forget certainly what forgetting he was definitely a very good football player. that part is true obviously he's he's got a lot of other elements to who he was and you know we don't have to discuss that but he was a very good football player player and really kind of helped unlocked demarcus Lawrence to a degree in two thousand fifteen with Greg Hardy kind of taking all that attention away from him interestingly enough Robert Quinn is to a degree benefiting fitting from all the attention that is now being focused demarcus Lawrence but so you've got those three players by the way for what it's worth Tommy Haines and rape perkins each had two sacks and their first games of the Dallas cowboys the Roy Glover had one and a half if you were scoring at home but so Robert Quinn off to a very good start in fact he actually leads the cowboys and sacks with three and I know I I know there's a lot of demarcus lawrence slander going around dude again. This guy's being double teamed at a pretty ridiculous rate more than just about everybody in the NFL at this point the fact that you have have somebody like Robert Quinn opposite of him why requires benefiting so much which is why people are so excited about this trade to begin with. You put an elite talent opposite of an elite talent. That's likely going to lead to elite results in the cowboys are seeing that what's interesting enough is Robert Quinn or to have a sack on Sunday against Aaron Rodgers. He would be the first player player in Dallas. Cowboys Franchise history to record at least one sack in his first three career games with the team. That's pretty cool. I mean it's a little bit of history of we gotTA. Dak Rushing touchdown Robert Quinn said we'd have all sorts of history happening at at and T. Stadium on Sunday October six now. How likely is it. That Robinson gets a SEC. I mean I mean really how likely that's that's the question that I've chosen ask and I think it's fairly likely actually because there are it really is kind of stupid that the cowboys ended up with Robert Robert Quinn honestly when when you look back at it because what he has done in terms of very recent history not even just talking about these last year into the Dallas cowboys suggests S. that he is a very very very special player so I want to get into that but before we gotta pay the bills I know I know I know.

Apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP okay so we were talking Robert Quinn and we were talking about how likely it is that he gets sack on Sunday against Aaron Rodgers. And why is that important we'll if Robert Quinn is sacking Aaron Rodgers that means the cowboys are doing well on defense. They're having more chances on offense injured maximizing the opportunity for victory cool. We all get that we all have common sense so Robert. Quinn has seven seven sex in his last seven games. He has seven sacks in his last seven. Games and two of those games obviously have come with the cowboys these last two games he only has one game there that he does not have a single sack so we're talking he has had at least a sack in six of his last seven games and that what is playing for the dolphins for the last five games of last season. It's pretty impressive right. I mean okay cool so Robertson's trending in a positive direction. Why does that mean he'll. Oh Saka. Andrew Andrew lucked all over the place. It's it's Wednesday. Are It's the middle of the week. We know how why does that mean. He will sack Aaron Rodgers. I'll tell you why Robert Quinn has played in four career games against riders. What's more these played in three career games against David Pop Bahktiar all right packers left tackles very good tackle but he's played in four career games against Aaron Rodgers and three against David bacteria he has three and a half career sex and of those three and a half career sacks on one of them. He forced a fumble bull in fact. It was actually pretty awesome fumble. If you're being honest with yourself but the first sack through our Quinn had on Aaron Rodgers came in two thousand twelve and again if you want to you can circle back to the boys calm about noon. Ish and you can see all the clips or you can go to my twitter at our Joe. They should be up by the time you're listening to this unless I the Internet wipe them away for whatever reason but two thousand twelve was the first sack that Robert Quinn had on Aaron Rodgers he was against Marshall Newhouse. They're not David bacteria so kind of hard to really assume that that stays the same but still a Saxon sacks. That's cool second-set who got against Aaron Rodgers still with the Rams obviously came in two thousand fifteen and that was against David Bacteria in fact he just is so fast I mean Robert Quinn has been fast basically his entire. NFL career and he's just so fast that everybody has no ability ability to stop him and he just runs around in Aaron. You know Aaron does what he can but Aaron jobs back and it's too far back in the pocket and all of a sudden Robert Quinn puts his hand out there swats the ball lose and and it's a fumbled at the rams recover interestingly enough. Randall Cobb is the person the Green Bay packers are credited with the tackle after the fumble look at that everything comes full circle but the most impressive game that Robert Coin is actually played against the Green Bay packers came last season with the Miami Dolphins. I think that's pretty cool. He had a second half so but not quite to Zack's but a second-half last season with the dolphins both times going up against David Bacteria. The first play is only half a sack. He shared it with Cam wake. So if you're sharing Sachs came waco doing alright for yourself but the second one the the most recent sack Robert Quinn has had of Aaron Rodgers if you're listening I encourage you to go look at this. It's my favourite sack Robert Quinn so far he destroys David bacteria in fact he's even getting held to some degree and he powers through. I mean Jason gave would probably call relentless lent lists and use a word like that. I mean a real sort of buzzy Jason Gear award he just has this relentless motor and he just drives through David Bacteria and in fact he uses just his his left arm to get Aaron Rodgers and brings him down. This dude is a monster. He's had a lot of success against this particular tackle against this particular quarterback and you know the cowboys and Aaron Rodgers our relationship that really sucks. If you're a cowboys fan I get it. He's a dude. It's really kind of had his way with them. I mean generally. What's what's the what's what's the good the cowboys have had against Rodriguez. They'd beat them in two thousand sixteen but other than that it's been all Aaron. It's really generally been a one-sided affair except for the first game they played against them in two thousand eight and that was it's a long time ago. I don't think they've ever had a player like Robert Quinn to up against Aaron Rodgers and I think part of it is obviously the defensives part of and and that's more than just playing opposite demarcus. ARCA scientists playing in Rodman skiing. That's you know sort of the way he's being used as having all that pressure of front in the middle as well I mean I it certainly conducive. It's kind of a perfect storm but I don't think the cowboys have ever had a weapon like Robert Quinn on defense to use against Aaron Rodgers and it's part of the reason why they've lost him so many times and I really believe every week talks about X. Factors and things like that Robert Quinn is the X. factor this week because he is the guy who has had success in terms of getting to this particular the quarterback and this particular quarterback is the Kryptonite for the Dallas Cowboys and he's done it on teams like the rams and the dolphins and so you put him I mean think about it and I I know actually I know that's not a like some shade towards Saint Louis and La if you WANNA call them that and Miami but and look I'm not at all trying trying to discredit the you know the fronts that the rams and dolphins have had because again cam wakes not a bad pass rusher but Robert Quinn is really never had somebody like demarcus demarcus lawrence to rush opposite of so the fact that he's managed to have all the success in spite of you know kind of being the guy I think really really really speaks to the fact that he could be the difference maker for the cowboys on Sunday Aaron. Rodgers and I think that when you look at that you look at how the cowboys GonNa GonNa find a way to win this game. You know isn't going to be dad. 'cause it's going to be a martyr. You'RE GONNA try to connect connect and really kind of find their way undergone yeah all that's necessary but the true difference can be made in the pass rush with Robert Quentin. That's the guy to to watch the Robert Quinn and look you know the packers offensive line is the Ludo battled and granted. They have a week and a half to rest because they play on Thursday night football but you think about the situation. Aaron Rodgers is with no Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers is a quarterback that when he finds the guys he likes and trusts he goes to that well and he goes and goes there and goes there. He just ignores dudes that he doesn't trust and so with one of his most trustworthy options and Davante Adams potentially not playing this game. I mean you've got to imagine there in Roger's is going to be in the pocket. Just whatever percent you WANNA call it ten percent more than he normally is and so if he's in the pocket just a hair longer than he normally. Is Somebody like Robert Quinn Quinn. I think this has the potential to be like a statement career in Ferrara coin. The environment really all sets up for that He's obviously playing well. You know to go along with everything we've discussed. This is the Robert Quinn game and I think that you know I think there's a lot of logic to that and I think there's a lot of hope to it but but buckle your your seatbelts because Robert Quinn is going to have himself quite the afternoon on Sunday against the Green Bay packers. It is Wednesday which means the week officially begins for the cowboys hours. We'll see what the official move is. In terms of replacing cave on Frazier Jason Garrett announced obviously this week that they were going to put frazier on injured reserve. Here's a peck injury either acquire surgeries after the season our thoughts and prayers and well wishes go out to cave on really good dude one of the best guys on the team we'll see what he's his. Contractual status from the season is over but so we'll see depending on when you're listening with this again it's possible the cowboys already made that move official. I have to imagine it to safety that they bring on the practice squad because they're elevating Donovan Wilson to you know active game day duties we can out so it's certainly cannot hurt to have another safety. You have another. DB for Christmas card to work with mold and you know the football the NFL is a war of attrition and that's you just have to survive so other than that I mean I guess we're we're kind of waiting to see what happens with Michael Gallup I. I know that there's a lot of thought you know and that's what we talked about this. When the news first broke up your weeks ago that you know maybe the cowboys hold them out to the by. Maybe they hold onto the eagles game. I mean who knows there's a lot of thought you know in the respective yeah well. I don't want to rush him. You know if he's not just have not come back and we don't have to rush him to get this game against the Green Bay packers etcetera Baba and that's fair but we have no idea what Michael Gallup's health status lettuces and there was some talk you know that he was looking looking ready and you know kind of might be ready to come back. Jerry Jones for what it's worth when he was first injured talked about ah some players come back after a week from this and that is Dr Jerry s you can often be so you've got to always take that with a grain of salt but Michael Gal returning against the packers would not be the weirdest thing I mean look at the injuries that this team has dealt with that people really kind of blew out of proportion to my people. I mean the original original reports. We heard a savior woods is going to be out four to six weeks. That obviously was not the case. We've heard Michael. Gallup could have been out longer but he might return this week. I mean tyrone Crawford situation that obviously is still kind of up in the air but overall injuries kind of work into the cowboys benefit right now but that can obviously change a moment's notice God willing it does not but Elida but yeah so then that will have tons of coverage all day long on Wednesdays the cowboys get ready for the Green Bay packers. Jason Garrett will have his normal daily press conference at about ten fifteen in the morning central time if you miss those if you're curious we do recap those at blog on the boys dot com so if you're curious for what Jason Garrett said he don't want to you know a sit through and watch all seven minutes of whatever yourself every day well. I'm talking every time Jason Gert Speaks and has a press conference. We recap it for you can just go to blog on the DOT com. We've we've got a therefore you can read what he said kind of hits you know kind of the big time moments because oftentimes repeat himself day by day. He's a football player. You know you know how that goes but but it's Wednesday and we're focused on week five or focused on getting better focused on being better today than we were yesterday. That's Jason Greer away so with all all of that being said you better just have the absolute best Wednesday of your life. You just gotTa have the absolute best Wednesday of your life and you know why because you deserve it. We we were friends as always go cowboys and peace out

Podcast network. I'm your host Michael Sizemore. You can follow me on twitter at Mr Sizemore and you can follow us at boroughs in the boys and at blogging boys with me as always he's the man of the hour he's too sweet to be sour folks. My colleague blogging voice. Mr Tom Rile a band. It's been weeks since we've been in your ear. We're GONNA start doing our podcasts. A little bit more consistently weekly. We just had a couple of things. Come up got busy. But we're back. We're talking Dallas cowboys. The cowboys have still not signed Dak Prescott to a long term deal still left side of Mauri Cooper to a long term deal. They haven't been able to do anything just yet but I guess what's on everybody's mind right now. Tom Is the CBA the NFL in the NFL PA or negotiating on a collective bargaining agreement and the CBI. Has You know they have? They have put forth a couple of different changes that they wanted to make the NFL. And the first thing is is that there are harping again on trying to add games to the season They WANNA make it at least a seventeen game season. And what can you tell us about what the NFL and the NFL? Pa are currently negotiating in terms of changes to the well. It's it's really the the NFL's Kinda taken okay here. It is take it or leave it. Let's see what if you will? We can do here And the NFL. Pa is kind of balking a little bit of some of the things and you know one of one of the big bones of contention is the seventeen game. Season would come with dropping one of the preseason games which I got no problem at all with that anybody would have a problem with not seeing a fourth or fifteenth preseason games that's what it feels like. Yeah but they they. They didn't add another by weekend. They want to just go with one. Bye Week with a seventeen gain. Which is that is something that the are not real happy about because it's already tough enough to get through a sixteen game season and if if you're going to add another game the another by week would be very helpful seems to be off the table from the NFL's perspective now. There's all kinds of questions about. How do you schedule The seventeenth game and I think actual do some pretty interesting things with it like you know establish a arrival in the other conference for every team and maybe do geographically or Dallas would play the Texans every year and and then you have like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia playing in the giants and the jets play? There's a lot of things they could do with that. And that's just that's just something technically to be worked out with the scheduling and we must remember that they're talking. I think about this all starting in twenty twenty one or maybe even twenty twenty two. It's not something that immediately. Yeah I don't think it affects this fall as I understand it but until they actually sit around and sign something. We're not going to be sure you mentioned. You mentioned the seventeen game schedule in not having another bye week. I think that that's gotTa be a sticking point for the NFL PA because like you said it's so difficult for players to to get their bodies ready each week to play in what you know. Essentially as a car crash every single weekend young to have them put more more damage more more miles on the on the body without getting another by week. It just seems like something. It seems like something that they wouldn't want to really do. Yeah and I I can. I can fully see how they feel that way because that that seventeenth week is one more time you're risking the rest of your contract For whatever is not guaranteed so yeah and and the NFL. Thune this weird provisions on that. Because obviously they're going to a seventeenth week the players are GonNa want more money so there's the NFL said okay. We'll just add another game check onto everybody's contract but then they added this thing we're going to cap at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You know for like eighty eighty five percent of the players. That doesn't really impact much for anybody who lives making more than four million dollars a year. Which is you know. Most of your starting quarterbacks and stuff you're giving up hundreds of thousands of maybe as a million dollars in pay and it's all like I saw that as like they trying to give put a poison pill in this thing. Yeah so anyway they would let that happen especially those higher paid players. That's a big portion of their salary and for that risk of You know potential season in the injury. What happens to all of a sudden? Dc Your stars bogging even playing in that last game especially on all the teams that aren't really playing for anything you know and that just seems to be a real the real issue and I don't know why it's in there. It's I'm going to be very to see how that part plays out. Because that's just kind of strange. Yeah that that would be very strange and and you know so. There's also a lot of talk with how this this. Cba affect what the cowboys are trying to do with Dak Prescott. Because last week it came out that the the new CBA negotiated to where the cowboys could end up. Losing that option at that second tag. So they only really have the franchise tag available and if they tagged Dak with that then Amari Cooper. They can't transition tag him Because they only have the one tag. So it's Kinda putting pressure on the cowboys to possibly get this done early with day. Prescott but then again everybody's kind of waiting on pins and needles the CBA to me to be negotiated. So it's kind of a chicken egg chicken series for me. Tom. What's going to happen I. Yeah and it's it's a little confusing because the NFL has has made some provision. They push back the deadline on the tag a couple of days and talked about going ahead and operating with two tags If they don't get the CBA done or you know it's a little fuzzy exactly what's going to happen. I don't think anybody's really certain right now. How that's going to be in effect when the time comes but yeah they. They've got to get that first domino done with DAX so they can move on because they got you know several contracts and we'll talk a little bit about some of that After the break here. And but yeah. It's it's kind of interesting thing and and the cowboys are watching it very closely because it directly affects what they're GONNA do and they've they've got you know like I said big decisions coming out how they're going to put this all together but there's you know there's a couple of things something that's come out of the. Nfl also wants to go to fourteen. Playoff teams essentially only have one team. We'll have a by and the wild card weekend will be six games instead of four. That's yeah that's one of those things that yeah kind of can see having the extra game definitely is going to increase viewership Is it going to dilute the pool? I I don't know it's kind of hard. I liked the twelve game. The twelve team Playoff structure they have now at the. I'm not going to be fourteen Tom. You're talking about almost half the league in the playoffs. Yeah and that was one thing I thought the the NFL had that was kind of an advantage over the Say the NHL of the NBA. And the fact that you know I. The regular season Games meant more. And it's it's one of those. Yeah I can see the plus and minus but the NFL is kind of taken the stance that that does not have to be part of the CBS negotiation. They have taken the stand say can go ahead and implement that anyway I I understand that you know more teams want to be in the playoffs and they want you know so they want to have like that tangible success so they can show their fan bases but I mean is it really successful. If you're just GONNA have a number seven and nine team from some of these bad you know divisions or you know even your increasing the chance that you can even have a six and ten team you know and yeah in the playoffs and that to me. I don't understand I know that Jerry Jones has out. Long been a proponent for expanding the PLOP playoff teams and stuff and he because he wanted to see his. You know ate and Ate Cowboys. Be Able to be in the playoffs. But I just don't see the point of having fourteen teams in the playoffs. You're talking about half the lead like you said it kind of dilutes. It kind of dilutes. The playoffs in kind of takes away the one thing that the NFL has over other sports because the NBA playoffs. Nobody wake it's not going to be on the same type of level but the NFL playoffs or watched those first round two people get people get excited about finals. I mean you and I we talk. We've talked baseball like I don't even watch baseball until a world series basketball. I'll watch a little bit more but it not not much in in in hockey. I don't watch it. Also these long drawn out postseasons if they do that get with the NFL. I think that they're actually doing themselves a disservice because it's going to dilute their products but the one thing they have is that it does extend it at all because it still just going to be three rounds round still be wildcard just me an extra wildcard team for each conference which I get but I also just think that again we're talking about do. Does a seventy nine team deserve to make the playoffs team deserve to make the playoffs but how many times you know era? Occasionally you'll have a situation where there is a ten and six doesn't make it true about that that's what they're looking at and you know it would. It would probably lead to frequently seeing a nine and seventeen squeak in deal with. Yeah is it's one of those things that I think is kind of a moot point because the owners seemed committed to this As another care to give the The networks and the The webcasters More product That they know they'll get ratings on. So yeah I think it's I think that's going to happen. And there's really not a whole lot we can do about it The cowboys are one of the teams exactly are so is there anything else. Cba related that is out there that we might need to Mention here that like just a couple of things making kind of minor but they are talking about increasing the roster to fifty five from fifty three and also the Game Day roster. We'd go from forty six to forty eight. That would be something every team would like. Yes you know. The more bodies you've got the MO the more people you've got you know particularly those two extra bodies on game day that's going to probably help special teams a lot. Yeah for sure because you know that a lot of times you get down to your forty six man roster and that's those decisions who's going to be an active each week a lot of times Teams even the cowboys. Have you seen it before? They have to deactivate Tristen Hill. Whom they would really like to have as an extra defensive tackle but because he gives them no offer on special teams they have to have some linebacker. Come up they have to play. Gifford are they have to have somebody else a corner or DB or somebody a wide receiver. Because they can't really afford to be without that extra special teams person it also may give is GonNa give them possibly as you said somebody that they can have out there and US on the field and and get some Reps. Let's say a Brandon Knight makes the roster? Well maybe you can keep him active and let him go out and get some work on kicks. Just just. There's there's to me that's just a positive and and I don't see why they would object to increasing them. I don't think you've got a problem with deluding talent pool. And and they're also talking about expanding the practice squad In a couple of steps I to twelve into fourteen which is to me is another positive it just. It's just more jobs absolutely job for football players and it gives more it gives chances for guys that need extra development to get that development. And 'cause sometimes you know they're not good enough to make make the roster and you gotTa make a decision on your your practice squad and so guys end up just end up in wasteland looking for things like the xfl or something to come along that can give them the opportunity to do something here. So I wheat green with both of those points on on that time. Think that a fifty or forty game day roster would be great fifty five roster would be great for any team and we've seen some cases of guys that were probably one of the last cuts for the cowboys going somewhere else and having some pretty decent seizes that would have been nice to assign them doing that with star in there but we could do that and talk chart various ward. And then we'd start crying so let's not do that Horrid take a quick break when we come back Enough of the CBI. We're GONNA talk about free agency. And I feel like we've talked about Dak Prescott in the morning Cooper enough and we know that nothing's going to happen until that gets done but for today we're going to focus on two defenders and the cowboys need to possibly resign. We'll be right back on the Brisbane. Boys' podcast hello. This is Jesse Dave Fox. I'm senior editor at vulture and I host the podcast. Good one a podcast about jokes.

Great Question Jesse David Fox and we are back on the Bruce and the boys podcast. I'm Michael Sites where you can follow me on twitter atmosphere sizemore. I got Tom Morale with me. You didn't following at Tom Rile. Btv Let's Talk Free Agency. We're GONNA kinda get into a preview mode of just what free agency can look like for the cowboys. Because the cowboys have a ton of free agents and Yeah I think a lot of a lot of free agents and a surprising number of very good was and walk into the assumption that they're going to figure something out with Daqing Amari and I think that is a safe assumption to make this point. I just don't see the night getting something done with either them. So that comes up to the next name on the list in its Byron. Jones Byron Jones. I want today. I want to focus on two defenders fire and Jones. WanNa focus on Robert Quinn because I think those are the top four free agents. The cowboys have so focus on Byron Jones. I because we talked about it before Tom. But we don't know exactly. How the coaches feel about Byron Jones? But we do know one thing since the cowboys are probably not as good of a defense without it and if the League is very high on him you know he will get snapped up if they the cowboys make what I think is a mistake. And don't sign him The NFL just put out their top. One hundred one free agents and you know I you see the Dak is one in. Amari is three and then down at not very far at number nine. There's Byron Jones the League sees his value. And I just it drives me crazy that there's people but go I can't even have interceptions. Yeah but he's doing a lot of good back there stopping passes from getting completed. That's yes in Byron Jones is okay. What Fire Jones Calling Card athleticism? Yeah one of the most athletic corners. Long Corner Best you know. He's a sticky sticky man defender. And that's what Chris Rashard liked about it because he leaves razor thin. You know razor thin amount of space between him and the person that he is defending has Aaron been beat. Sure he has lots of guys get beat. Every top corner in the league gets beat. I'll tell you right now. Dion Sanders has been beat before. Okay and I get that. Everyone's upset about the interceptions like he doesn't get a lot of picks. Okay so yeah. That's that's but interceptions in turnovers and things like that. Those aren't real measurable you don't you can't predict stuff like that. You can't predict what those what what somebody's going to how many interceptions are going to get. How many sacks they're going to get it just depends on everything around him. Byron Jones is the cowboys top corner but Byron. Jones is going to command a lot of money and right now a spot track has Jones market value at a five year. Seventy one million dollars about in fourteen fourteen point two million annually. That seems like a lot to pay. But I think the cowboys have some of the most SP- cap space in all of the NFL. Right now. That Yeah Shelly. That people should understand that maybe Byron Jones resigning him. That's probably the best they could do. Because what do they do? They don't sign your you're not gonNA replace his coverage ability and you're talking about the how. How Crystal Shard liked him. I admit I would be just gold to find out what Maurice Linguist and Al Harris think about him. And how would they want to coach him? Especially since Al Harris. Tom is a man cover teacher. Like that's what he does is man coverage that since that's his specialty press man and we. I don't know this but I suspect they are just chomping at the bit to see what they can do with a little bit of coaching and maybe give him a little bit better on his ball awareness and stuff it just. He's just seems too valuable a piece. You should not let someone like that walk and the cowboys can can manipulate the cap space with their bonus structures and deferred money all that stuff and they can find the room to get to sign not just top three. But they're top of four free ages and still have room to work for the for the fill in other blue holes. There may still have would. It might keep them for making a big free agent signing from the outside but it still is doable and that and that's kind of what I want to get because look let's say the cowboys just don't want to pay that price tag. They don't WanNa give Byron fourteen million per year they don't WanNa pay him seventy one million dollars okay. Well it's not like the they're going to be able to sit there and fill his role with anyone. I I don't know how the cowboys coaches spiel. About Jordan Lewis. I think Jordan. Lewis is good and he can start. I think the cowboys you can't just go and sign you know who's the other Anthony Brown and be like. Hey guys we're good. We're good here because Cheeto a YMCA has so much technical issues that he has to fix like turning his head and being able to stay in. Stay in the play. Those kind of those kind of issues Jordan. Lewis is going to be limited by size at times and Anthony. Brown is going is a vast guy but I'm not. I don't necessarily think that he is the most disciplined corner so Byron Jones is their best corner if they do not resign Byron Jones. What do they do okay? We'll say well we'll just drop the guy. Okay just draft a Guy. Okay and then you have wh who you're GONNA draft and they're gonNA have their own growing pains they're gonNA show up in automatically look better than Jordan Lewis or should They're not GONNA do that. And you're going only going into the draft with seven picks and you've got a you've got several holes to fill you know we've we've talked about you know we're talking about corner if they if they don't do Jones but then they still gotta worry about safety and then you know. Georgia's bigger way bigger of a whole at safety. Then they are anywhere else and then then if you take out Byron Jones and you don't resign him then you're a major whole on the whole back end of your defense. They've already got. You've got needed defensive. Tackle too so yeah. You've got Y- yeah you. You can't sit there and say that you're going to go into the draft because a it's a college player you never know for sure how they're going to do taking the next step and there's almost always some growing pains and you know and so let's say if the cowboys so in my mind in my opinion here if the cowboys say no to Byron Jones will then they have to go out in free agency and they've got a sign somebody that can play and somebody that can actually play well You're probably not going to be quite as good. Know exactly. Because their backup plan the best they could probably do is go after the Denver Corner. Chris Harris he's thirty years. Old has his market values about thirty three million dollars. So it's about eleven million a year and he's got twenty career interceptions that's great but he's thirty years old so now you're you're still just kicking that CANTU next year. What you're GONNA do afterwards. Yeah you know then. They could possibly go after cornerback. Trae waves from Minnesota three years. Twenty five million dollars is what it's looking like. His spot track you know. Mark Value is eight million annual. He's got seven interceptions to his career and he's twenty seven years old same age as Byron Jones. And right there I can tell you. He's not as good. I mean I'm just not. He's just not as good. So are you really. If you're going to free agent way you're still going to have to spend some money a pretty penny if you will I think that you would just be better off. Re-signing your own guy and keeping him in your on your roster for the next five years. Yeah and and like I said you're going to manipulate those contracts and set them up so that you can work them in under the salary cap and you're you can still do it in have room for our fourth guy. Yes and that's why we're going to start talking about Robert Quinn so Robert Clinton leads the cowboys and sacks with twelve sacks last year. He was exactly what you believe would be. If you've got demarcus Lawrence help demarcus Lawrence. I know a lot of people are down on his production last year but he was he was more productive for the cavaliers last year. Bass what you see when people are double teaming demarcus Lawrence you get a guy like Robert Quinn in here. And he has a huge year. Well he is going to be thirty years old and his market value right now. It is three years thirty five and a half million an average of about eleven point eight million a year and there are folks out there that you know. I think most people would rather resign. Robert Quinn I think I would rather resign Robert Quinn. I think we're starting to see in the league that pass rushers even older pass rushers. Terrell suggs are still very productive in the NFL. And I think that the cowboys another thing just like we said Tom with with Byron Jones. If you don't have Robert Quinn there that you're back to square one where demarcus Lawrence is the best guy on your football team on your defensive line and everybody just kind of bills in. Yeah and they don't produce much. Yeah and I don't think that's what what Might Nolan Jim or wanting to look at they. They want the horses. Course coaches always want the horses to go out there but Yea I think they need to. A quicken has indicated is very open to staying in Dallas. And so you know maybe maybe they get something done with him Before the the others because he is probably be the smallest hit of all of them and so about a three year deal. I think it's very much doable for the cowboys here. Thirty five and a half million dollars are going to be provision in there. There's going to be ways they can. The cowboys can protect themselves. And it's always really a two year deal with the third year in fact what are you. GonNa you GONNA eat some dead money but it's not gonNA cripple you exactly because I think folks are kind of getting ahead of themselves your Tom by saying like well. They can't do all of this. They can't do everything yes they can't as I think that just people are getting ahead of themselves with Robert Quinn. Thinking that the cowboys can't do it all and and I really think they can't. I'm I think that if they they gotta get the Dak Prescott Stuff Amari Cooper done I or they can't really start doing anything else Which we know but these are guys that are off Robert Quinn in Byron Jones. Our guys that if they walk out that door you now have put yourself in a worse position and there's not a lot out there that you can. You could feel with that. What are you GONNA do? If you don't re-sign Mar- Robert Quinn you're GONNA look to Buffalo's defensive in Shack Lawson twenty five years old. I mean he's probably GonNa get an ice deal it's going to be you know somewhere around eight or nine million a year for four year deal. Then you're sitting or you could go after Atlanta's Vic Beasley who the Falcons said. They plan to resign which should be a red flag right there. What's going on there so I don't know Tom? I just think that the cowboys would be really kind of in a bad situation to start out and they are a team that just because they changed over. The coaching staff doesn't mean there's not high expectations and they've got you know they're going to have some other free agents. They need to to to resign. You know because you know just broth top top of things you know. They don't have a place kicker or a long snapper under contract yet and they've got you know one the Waikele solution of if he doesn't want to retire Lucy a lot of fear rather and then Kai forbath they should at least bring back lane. Try for the job. So you gotTa have. They gotta get some things sorted out because there's a lot of work to be done before the draft. Yeah there is a lot of work to be done before the draft but I think that if you talk about the cowboys top four you know free decisions they gotta make. We know those top two but I think that Byron Jones and Robert Quinn or the next two and I really feel that people get excited about draft season. Tom and they start thinking about. Oh we just go out there and get Christian Fulton and put that corner in there in guys he's GonNa have he's GonNa have his struggles. He's gotTa be a rookie and I really would. I mean if you asked me who I'd rather replace in in the draft. It would be the corner. 'cause DEFENSIVE ENDS. Rookie defense events. Yes they do not have a good track record of producing. It usually takes about three years for those guys to hit their stride. And meanwhile you know I'd rather see them. Put the money into safety exactly. I'd rather see them. Put the money into safety. Get a young safety in. There's somebody with playmaking ability whether it's you know. Whether it's Xavier mckinney. The cowboys are are are apparently high on or other people that right around the cowboys beat are very high on or grant from lsu something somebody back there a a a nice like you know balanced defensive back for the safety group because that's something they've been trying to fill for a long time and have it but having to if you take two of your guys out now if you take the corner. Audi Take Byron Jones out a guy. That's you know. Played very well for you. Maybe doesn't have all the interceptions but he's not also giving up a lot of huge place. And then you take out Robert Quinn. The Guy that just leads the team in sacks I mean you're putting yourself in a pretty big hole and you gotta decide. You know which is which is better which is going to help my team. Do I need to get defensive? Lineman right now do. I need to get a corner or do I need to get a safety. And now you're just sitting there adding more holes instead of putting filling instead of making yourself feel better about your. And how many starting rookies do you want to have to rely on exactly? I don't think you want to have to rely on a lot. Especially if you're going to be paying high prices for your receiver in your quarterback you need to make sure that you keep that team as best you can when you have a salary cap to keep them in tax. You can actually perform and live up to your expectations and get and get in the playoffs and do something. Because you don't WanNa be sending their years later like the cowboys were after the Tony. Romo years sitting there saying that we would have just put something in there. We could have been better so looking at free agency Tom. I think that you know it starts and ends with Daqing Amari. And then you gotTa look to Byron Jones and your Defensive End Robert Quinn. I think that all four of those are essential signings. The cowboys have to make what say you can get those for back under contract than the then you can go and do your you know. Second Way Free Agent Third Way Free Agent Bargain shopping. And Look. Who you've got that you can get on economical deals and I just. I just think they need to deal with those those four real stars guys that are all on all the top one hundred free agent lists and all using for them. Yes yeah well. That's all we got to talk to you about today. We're going to continue our lists and looking at the cavalry spree. Agents is it. You should think about think about resigning. Say when we come back next week. We'll talk to you soon. Cowboys Nation Take Care Brews in the boys was created by Tim. Phillipi Michael Sizemore. The show is a production of sway.

Happy thursday. It is March twenty eighth two thousand eighteen three twenty eight that is happy New England Patriots falcons day Super Bowl fifty one. Certainly some good times. There's a lot of sports going on obviously across the world that is opening day. Happy opening day to you. I know we have a lot of people who root for a lot of different baseball teams. So hopefully, yours got the dub unless they are the Tampa Bay rays. Of course, we've got the Sweet Sixteen going on this weekend, and the elites ought to be some good times in the world of college basketball tonight this Thursday night, the San Antonio Spurs will retire manage nobody's iconic twenty jersey number. So a lot going on it is it is very busy. But of course, there's a lot going on in the world of the Dallas Cowboys as there always is. We got some some big almost news. I guess is the best way to put it some some almost news happening on this particular Thursday Thursday around lunchtime. We got a report from Ian Rapoport. Obviously the NFL network tweeting. He is on Twitter at rap sheet. His sources say the Cowboys and dolphins have parameters in place on a trade descend pass rusher. Robert Quinn to Dallas. There are still minor issues to work with Quinn's agent in wrote. But the Cowboys are expected to land the big piece on the edge of their defense. NFL networks, Tom Pella. Zero also reported that Robert Quinn will do a new one year deal with the Cowboys to complete the trade with the dolphins per his source. And this is a very very big deal for the Cowboys. Obviously. Now, it is worth pointing out that the Fort Worth star telegram Clarence hill reported on Thursday afternoon that per his source lots of sources involved in source season. No Cowboys trade for Quinn will happen before three PM central time on Thursday. But he did report that I it does look like things are trending in the direction of getting done. So all that being said, let's go one to ten with one being the least and ten being the most. Because it does look like this is going to happen. It seems like the Cowboys and Robert Quinn, our marriage that is going to come to be just a matter of dotting some is and crossing some TS and sometimes that takes time so one being the least ten being the most how excited are you about landing? Robert Quinn, the wreck Sam on periscope says six point five, you know, I think that's fair. My comp. Prescribes seven MP3. Powell says seven seven minus. I don't know that the seven minus or like an a minus or something. Kobe says eight emptied to going seven to eight not seven minus. I think this is good on periscope Mike Rogers says nine so our lowest answer so far is six point five on the Facebook life, you'd Lynn Clifford Snell to seven and a half. Jose, can you honest to seven so we're all right about there. Right about a seven to eight grade for this move. This is a fantastic move. Obviously, given the circumstances surrounding the state of the Cowboys defensive line as we know Randy Gregory suspended indefinitely. There is a weird discussion about Randy Gregor. Anytime you bring that up. Anytime you circle that subject people say, well, you don't know what's going to happen. What we know for now. All we know all we can Bank on is that as a Thursday, March twenty eighth two thousand nineteen I might have said eighteen at the beginning of the episode. I'm not sure, but he the way all we know is that right now Randy Gregory suspended indefinitely. So Robert Quinn gives you legit. Depth in a legitimate option opposite of DeMarcus Lawrence, this is a much needed move as Mike Davis has periscope have stubs on Facebook says it's a ten I look, this is awesome. I mean, this really is awesome. This is the exact type of thing that people had begged to see the Cowboys do go trade for that veteran that you can go get don't alter your compact formula, go out and get a guy who you trust who you believe in. You've had a high grade on whatever you wanna call it. This is a really smart thing to do. And there's a lot of obviously hesitance given the state of the democracy situation. We've talked so much about that this week. There was a report from NFL. Now, we're exchange Slater on Thursday morning that he's looking for von Miller money with twenty two percent for lack of a better word inflation, given what has happened to the salary cap since von signed his deal three years ago. Now, that's a lot of money. That's a lot of cheese that is an enormous amount of money to pay to any particular player to pay to any pass rusher. Obviously there are some concerns with DeMarcus Lawrence, but Robert Quinn landing. In Dallas, while that is not technically official at the time of this particular conversation that does give the Cowboys a bit of leverage now DD Christie, two one five on periscope says, I don't understand how this gives you leverage with de LA. Let's be clear on that. Because it's a good point. Does this give you leverage in the sense of? Hey, DeMarcus guess what we got Robert Quinn. Now, you gotta take less money. No, it doesn't give you leverage in that since I don't think anybody's saying that. However, this does mitigate the leverage that DeMarcus Lawrence had which is affectively giving you leverage if you're the Cowboys because if you're DeMarcus Lawrence, first of all you have every right to ask for all of this money because you are a beast your baller your great. You've put out two great seasons in a row. So you have legitimate data to support the idea that you want to get paid to a high degree. So that is already why democracies has the right to ask for a lot of money beyond that DeMarcus Lawrence has the leverage that Randy Gregory has been. Suspended indefinitely for this season. That Tattenham Crawford is facing some sort of investigation on the NFL given his involvement at a bar and altercation of sorts in Florida. We all know about that we cover that last week. So this mitigates the leverage that DeMarcus Lawrence has which is in turn giving you leverage rented, it's it's sort of going from you know, the Cowboys had negative fifty leverage. Now, they might have negative thirty five, but you still gain fifteen so to speak for lack of a better way to put it this is this is good news all around for every single reason that you can kind of figure out it is. It is good for the guy was now on periscope curly love. It says do we think Dallas gives in when it comes to tank? Look, there's a lot of ways to think about this because DeMarcus Lawrence is a very talented pass rusher. But he does have an injury history. He has a suspension history for being honest with ourselves. I think that when you look at pass rushers in the NFL, and this will turn into a huge argument. But there are a certain select group of of. Offensive lineman of passers in general that are very very special. You have your Khalil max, you have your Aaron Donald you have your von Miller, and I would throw JJ watt. Although obviously we're talking like JJ while we're not talking about current day JJ watt. But you get the point. I don't know the DeMarcus Lawrence is in that class of pass rusher. He's like right outside that group. I mean, we're talking that group is like the creme de LA creme and DeMarcus Lawrence is just outside of it. So it's kind of hard to in your own mind say that you're going to pay him the way all of those guys are paid. I mean it boils down to you know, like people talking about quarterback. So yeah, he's a good quarterback. But he's not an elite quarterback DeMarcus Lawrence is really good pass rusher. But an elite pass rusher. I don't think any of us believe he's in that territory, but he is as close as you could be without being in in that specific territory now, the number twenty two million dollars has been floated out in terms of annual salary for DeMarcus Lawrence. That's a lot of money. That's a ridiculous amount of money. Let's take a poll right now on on Twitter. Periscope and the Facebook live if it were twenty two and a half million dollars. It's caught a six year deal twenty two million dollars per year for democracy. Yes. Or no. Would you do that for our live audience on Twitter? Periscope in the blog of the boys. Facebook live feed would you give DeMarcus Lawrence twenty two million dollars per season. The real wrecks 'em says. Yes, I'm periscope sodas curly. Coach says no sodas Chris on periscope. That's a lot. I mean, where I do disagree with saying that you wouldn't do it is if you would give him twenty one million dollars if you would give him twenty million dollars. I mean that is a small difference. And there is a lot of things associated. It's not just a matter of two million dollars, whatever. But if you're willing to come up really high, and you just won't go to that last notch. Then I think you have to evaluate the situation. Now, there is something to be said about saying we have a ceiling. The ceiling is twenty million dollars anything over that. We're not going to go over no matter what. Happens. And so maybe that's the situation with the Cowboys. Now, we actually do have a mixed amount of answers. I would say fifty fifty percent all over Twitter. Periscope and Facebook live in terms of whether you would broach twenty two million dollars for democracy Lawrence coach Cebu to on periscope says he's in the range of eighteen to twenty with bonuses at fair. I think that's fair. But similarly in if you think this discussion is rough. All right. Let's remember this. In fact, let's all take one moment right now to cherish how special these conversations are because if you think that this conversation is rough. And if you think that this is difficult just wait until the Cowboys are negotiating a long term contract with Decca Prescott. Okay. Because that is going to send things into hyper drive as far as disagreement is concerned. Here's the situation. And this is the same thing that's applicable to Dak Prescott a question on periscope. But what I do what what I would do is. I think you have to understand the market and the market is that, you know, you get paid twenty two million dollars a year. I mean in an objective way from data driven perspective DeMarcus Lawrence has every right to ask for twenty two million dollars that feels fair. I mean there are fair and logical reasons why he should ask for that much money. There are fair and logical reasons why the Dallas Cowboys should pay him that much money. It's just it's scary. I mean, that's you know, to be honest. It's scary to pay somebody that much money because it is a lot of money. And so, you know, I think it does make sense, by the way, some interesting news coming out double checking on Twitter as as we're live here. This doesn't happen all the time. But sometimes because we go live here on July. That's why I recall though, July. Things do happen. New England Patriots defensive coordinator, Gregg Yano has resigned. Very interesting turn of events there in New England. Obviously Greg Shana took over for Brian Flora's who took the Miami Dolphins head coaching job. People thought that Chris Rashard was going to get that job, but Brian floors, ultimately got it and Greg Szanto got the patriots defensive coordinator gig. And he has resigned very interesting for him to resign inside of a month to the NFL draft after free agency, obviously the patriots or the patriots. They've seen things happen to them. Rob gronkowski retired. They lose trae flowers and free agency to the Detroit Lions. So that's kind of interesting who who knows what's going to happen there. I'm sure more news will follow but not every day that a defensive coordinator resigns in late March certainly interesting that it would happen on March twenty is again three twenty eight is kind of a patriots holiday. But who knows who knows what's going to happen that with some some weird breaking news but back to the DaMarcus Lawrence. Point. What I would do the market is the market. I think you have to you have to decide a very simple question. Do you want democracy on your football team? That's the only question there's not a question of do you want to pay him twenty million dollars? If you want to pay him twenty two and a half million dollars. Whatever the simple question. The only question is do you want him on your football team? Curly up. Periscope says, yes, if your answer is yes. And you gotta pay him twenty two million dollars a year. That's that's it. That's the the reality of it because the market dictates that that's what he should get and he has a resume that supports getting that much money. It's the exact same thing that we're going to see what that press people, then it'd be pissed because going to be upset the Dak Prescott is gonna make someone you're twenty million dollars a year. But he has the resume to support that he has the credentials that demand that he would get that much money. I think that that's just the matter of fact of it all that you have to decide if you want him on your football team. It's going to take that. And for me, I certainly want democracy once on my football. Team. But it's it's tough. I mean, it's a scary thing. It's a scary roll the dice. And that's kind of how contracts work sometimes in the NFL. There was a comment on to to be Facebook live feed interlinking the patriots news of the day. And the Cowboys news certainly have every single day. Do we think that the Dallas Cowboys will open up on the road against the New England Patriots? You might have seen. We got news this week that the Chicago Bears will host the Green Bay Packers in the first game of the NFL season on Thursday nights. By the way. I do think that the eagles are really pissed off that the bears to play a game at home on Thursday at just how the eagles are all their petulant like that. But the first Sunday night football game of the season. We'll be in New England. It will not be Cowboys giants as we've gotten used to for so long. So many people have wondered who will the New England Patriots host when they raised their Super Bowl fifty three championship banner. I don't think it will be the Dallas Cowboys for what it's worth because opening weekend. And the NFL is a day. That is dominated no matter what from a ratings perspective by the NFL. So why wasted? I if I ran the NFL I would not waste Cowboys patriots in week one just because it's such a valuable game. I would want that game to be in late October to early November. That is that is a crown jewel as far as the two thousand nine hundred season is concerned. I'm not going to burn it. And we one personally that's just how I operate. I think I honestly think if I had to pick who I think that the patriots will open up against a lot of people think it'll be the Cleveland Browns. Baker Mayfield, not about them, junior, etc. I don't think that either because I think that that is not the same logic as the Cowboys, but it's a similar logic. I think the patriots opened up against the jets. I think that makes a lot of sense. I think it's levian bell returning back to the NFL after a year away. The jets kind of the hopeful up and comer in the AFC east. I think that that makes sense, and it's not too high priced of jewel to burn and we won. That's why I think we see that. But who knows either way Robert Quinn? It feels like that should be official soon. I bet we get that on Friday. But so far it's it's official as it could be without being official. Which is a good thing. We'll see what happens with DeMarcus Lawrence get ready to keep on waiting. Enjoy this sports. And again, we've got MLB opening day. We've got the Sweet Sixteen and elite eight this week in and the incidentally tournament managing oblique gets his jersey retired on Thursday night grass. Yes, my new and and a whole lot of other fine. We'll be back front of their lives show next Tuesday at three o'clock central time. We will have a podcast on Friday. We will have a podcast on Monday.

Talkin' The Star: Defensive line discussion

"Hello everybody walking fast. Star and unearned. This is not the voice. You're used to hearing, but isn't a voice that you are giving. Today isn't Dalton Miller one of the CO host of the talking to star podcast. We do not have connor winters today. He is at his wedding venue. Not, getting married yet but he's there with all of the the wedding vendors. They're going through all the plans contingencies for if the weather doesn't cooperate, so he's a little bit busy, but it's me and Coal Patterson here today Cole. How are you doing doing pretty well? Man I Guess. We got it alone. Coroner on the show, but I think we can manage. I think we'll be okay I? Mean what we lose. A point four wartime guy like if that much, does he really. How much does he really to? It's probably running back over. All. Of Our show, there's no doubt about that. Yes so we are. We're continuing along with our. Previews of the twenty twenty Dallas Cowboys. We have done so far, Dan don's though far. I've done defensive backs with them. They've also done wide receivers. Tight ends and alternative line to I believe correct. Yes, yeah, we. Still, they've done all that still. We could talk about quarterbacking rolling back, but we don't really want to, so we're going to go to the defensive line. We're going to take care of these defense. Avenge are and the defensive tackles kind of talking about what we saw from group last year and what we might see from them. Are you know going forward and then we will do our? A roster predicts in our fifty, five, hundred fifty three are men. Depth chart attributions are as we go along so. I. Were there any surprises that you really got from those Defensive Ryan last June? Did you expect them to struggle against the run and struggle to get home against quarterback last year? Or. Did you think you know that could have been a little bit of a week? Yeah I mean obviously I think we are all excited about. Russian defenses is heading towards after that twenty eighteen. Obviously. We all know the Christmas card there's to be worth thinking to eat could be the next head. Coach of the cowboys Sarah Brady's. I really excited with his defense can do and then you kind thought like you said the divas kind of to back especially D ron and that run defense. System that has to do. Is Lane Vendor Missing Mercer this evening in Jalen Smith regretting some regards. But the deal I really do much, either especially against the run I mean Robert Quinn a really good additional roster. Stand especially when you consider the compensation they gave. Honesty that sticks crown. but I mean and Marc Lawrence demarcus Lawrence. You might not that crazy. Stack numbers that maybe challenge. And he's very good, obviously running the better in the league going. You said they weren't a strongest Iran They struggle to get off the field or you can. Beat that some of that can be. Obscene theorized committee guys a Ryan backers, expecting a little bit more Will fine markets ruins his back numbers. Our kind of disappointing that durant arms charring and take another job on I know he was a day through. Higher my opinion and other people were. All in are. It up I I was expecting more will say that West the. Yeah it was weird one last year because like. If you look at the path, rush win rate, which is a big one. That's you know kind of gaining steam narrow. You would see to defense vans. who were both fantastic? When it comes to meeting the man in front of them? So what happened when it comes to the past role? I think a lot of. It wasn't just wants him. Coordinated in their attack, they were able to to get pressure from multiple spots. Because most quarterbacks in the NFL, they can get away from that initial pressure on. It's the ability to to stack rushes together on a singular play that really you're. You're able to get those Those facts and with guys. That weren't really helping in the middle. Towers had a pretty pass. Rush win rate, but he's a bit out of control. Vote is a run defender and a pass rusher, and that really hurting defense a little bit I just don't help her of not having a ton of debt on the interior, and like you said. DOORKNOBS, Armstrong. Not really taking that next at the obviously didn't down rainy, Gregory They didn't have Obvi- Three Smith are so. I guess I'm really just wondering. was there anything rats here? Do you think that? Tyrone's Crawford in tyrone kloppers injury. Once a little bit. More substantial when it comes to. How did? Ten especially, the defense of line played the whole life here. Yeah for sure I. Don't think Tyron Crawford is the kind of recognition height, especially Nascar media especially, even with the cowboys fans in general. The Big Name Guy, he's not the flashy past three moves. Not GonNA put up crazy sack numbers or being highlight plays, but I do think he is the gorilla that defense he's Kinda guided brings everybody together and holds A. Everybody together I mean. I mean we've heard demarcus lawrence stocks hiree of them and really pretty much everybody else not have locker, and he has leaders papers kind of course. Jay, against these leaders ability You know reading here about asked him a lot of players, but I think it really is very beneficial. Crawford on the field for Dallas and. I don't know if he was the that Vegas greased in per se. But, I do think he is nice store with I. DO think that. There is the D. Misplace Nine Day within went dot com on their fear and I think they were her tremendously with our, and so I've I've seen Stewart talk about cutting, and and all that kind of stuff and I would agree that probably the cap numbers parts you is especially if he is a man, I remember hearing last running tear two acre like I Reckon and I guess lessening their pay if you can't i. don't see why. You would call him because what he brings to the table like I just. kind of the grew owning ever find together, and he's very good. He's very versus. How to play outside and he's Mary effective enduring so. Yeah I'm I'm in total agreement with you here. I think the loss tyrone crawl heard was being because like you said I mean I. It was really demarcus Lawrence on that defense that was the leader, and then behind him, or even at the same level as him from a leadership standpoint warns tyrone. Crawford some losing him. You lost out on that leadership voice that I think that they tried to fill that void with Jalen myth and it just didn't work out. And that for me is going to be a massive story line going forward. How does? The brand of Jalen Smith. Max with the rest of the defense going forward, because even part of it, and he's going to be a part of his defense for a while because the contract extension. I'm wondering if he's able to kind of tone down. The the advertising. And get a little bit more back on the message of what made us really large Jalen Smith in the first place is his. Genton, generosity and his genuine nick. Coming out of Notre Dame as why everybody really liked him on top of being the elite level player, he wasn't Notre Dame as well so I I do think that losing tyrone Paul from his beg especially, because like you said he did have bet inside out versatility, and when you were kind of lacking depth at both provision last year. I. Think that really did hurt now. Moving on a, we're going to talk a little bit I kind of wonder with typically. into the defensive tackles moving forward. And then we'll go to break and after the break. We'll talk about the defensive end. That might possibly make the team. And then. Yeah, we'll talk about all of the defense and then, and we'll get into the actual rock to predictions for who we think is GonNa, make this football team, so let's just quickly getting to the defected tackles. How do you mean what we lost from last year? What we picked up from this year is a net positive after this. Awesome. Yeah I. Mean I don't think are you? Can otherwise simply because of the fact you're adding to reject guys that detach. Jerry Mcclain Dante Thorough Obviously you can. Means that they're not, they're peaks careers anymore, but there's still an upgrade from team added that defensive tackle. Be for a while you gonNa hit our Marie kearns earlier consistencies at dude nature. McCoy's a huge upgrading. I don't regard at least I mean. He's very experienced. He's a veteran in the region economist, either when those battles in the trenches new spin very good where where he's been as done territory, impo isn't discourtesies me. Is Name Yes, the big name, but I I don't know if he's the superstar Deepak. We used to be back in a dairy. Kansas aiding everybody to very good pickup in his own right Let's say the one thing that's at least a looney concerning I. Probably Carnera article. Disputing this Garner showing riots be conservatives players out of the gate. How are they? Pour in McCoy struggled arm or distal, the enters defense struggle with. Am Corey on roster. However, I mean Mike Surfing. Coroner disputed that looking at the film saying about their phone that kind of different other factors, but answer your question. I do think it's an upgraded signing those two from Raleigh. Durham neighborly invested too many resources kind of like safety. In recent years and they also Nabil Gower warring in a third round a guy that I know a lot of people are much higher on and where he went in the draft, and we'll see what comes to answer on words if he is back on Enron or that. Situations bit tricky right now. Right new is overall net positive with darkness Houston. We've finally seen them. Go around and sign outside. Free agents finally get proven guys the plane that made that defense. The. demarcus lawrence than health in on a D line to get after the quarterback to. Prove that run defense, I do think it is a net positive i. do think the deep. The difference of line is our whole. will be better. Yeah, so that that question was interesting because he is. Antwan words that is is is not rested on the roster. Currently part of it, but. He is A. He's a restricted free agent, right? Situations kind of confusing. sinus endure so. I don't know it's interesting. On back in and be back, but I don't take marriage and this. Kind of how it seems for me as well and you know, even though the the defensive line we look at it last year. It probably wasn't as good as we would have liked it to be our when you look at you, know paths run when it comes to Dvr. Van Up being twenty first overall, they were actually fifteenth against the Roth and twenty third against the, and they were worse against the pack than the rush. Even there. We kind of perceived them. Being a bad run team Antoine. Woods was not a part of the problem when it came to defending the run on I think we can all kind of wheels to acknowledged that, so you would think that with the Guy Right Don's Harry Poe and. Antoine, if dark factor remain on the team now help. Now past that like. You look. Turnhill didn't give you anything as a rookie. I don't know how much he will ever give you but you hope be covered. The the physical profile looking possesses that he is able to become a player in the future. He didn't last year and I. Don't expect anything from this year. So. You're looking back at it. Losing Malinche Collins. In not that big a deal. At the end of the day, and like you said they picked up her, they picked up recording and and ended the day. That brings a little bit of readership. Arm and Aged? For for lack of a better term. When you're looking at defense. Secondary as heartily next, but the rescue guys young our first contract guys throughout the rest of the secondary. You work the linebackers. Gaillard's just got a second contracting in his fourth year. Layton Vandereycken in third year. Jared spent technically, and it's fit, but one year employees and then you have stolen read when he's coming off the burnt. So you have a lot of young guys that you have that veteran defensive line. You shouldn't have to worry about them being in the in the wrong place at the right time. That's me issue so I. DO think that they will improve harm last season. We're going to go to break. We'll be right back. We will talk about the defensive end and we will predict. The Rock Ter- from the deter on the t shirts event position. We are talking to star. We will be right back. And we are back. On Talking Star. We're talking about the Defensive Line Dallas cowboys today. Going through kind of what we saw from them, live here and what they lost to what they gain this season and we're going to predict. How Defensive Line is going to look win training camp and. Starting. Cole. How did you think these defended and own the whole performed last season? You have a kind of talked earlier this with their. Robert Quyen. demarcus warrants being the to I the Robert. Quinn grade was the big win for the categories and the fact that the only given experiment big. He gave them doubly tax and gave him a legitimate pass rusher. demarcus Lawrence, and then they got a carpet, or they're going to get a carpet for him as well because of mispronounce A very smart move by the team. He was to use a big time player for Dowers, defense and otherwise disappointing. In for many guys didn't stat. demarcus lawrence like demarcus Lawrence Amine. You know you're going to get from her. He's one of the best players across the league in our. Popping numbers in a sack category per se, but I mean he is. He's very good. Run he can get after the quarterback. Eat like you said. I mean he's kind of leader on his defense. He kinda makes his team go. especially in in its ventures other than that. We'd broke kind mentioning how doors Armstrong Dan really take the next job in his career granting viewers in day, three cores on accused the premium, selection or anything, but he in my opinion I thought. He throws her things is I? Kind of kind of hoping for more dowers, just me being optimistic or ride, but Not Seen and take the next step in his career was kind of disappointed for me. He really couldn't breakthrough in that rotation. Maybe you will run our new coaching staff just locked. Wait and see the crawl bird injury kind of hurt his team as well and not being on our on the field and contributing on that deadline kind of hurt their in positioning. say in Avenue in Gregory. Said I mean he was in on it team on Smith, not even daughter. Sober all. And everything faucet at Tom but I think. There's kind. Wasn't there. You know I mean you. Lawrenson is Quinn, and then you didn't really know what to expect from the others, and at least in my opinion, yeah, and on top of that you didn't have Robert like Robert Quinn as good as he was against the Passi was terrible against and. So you had that as well people you know, and and I think that's part of the reason why we didn't see them. Being tanked lords year, life even is because teams could simply just run away from him and be okay. Be In a better position, no matter what so. You were able to to kind of come around him tomorrow. Florence is still one of the. Most creative! Artists in the NFL when it comes to he have your leaves physical traits, but he has such fantastic technique when it comes to being a pass rusher when he's able to actually years back, and it really helps, but. At the end of the day is a great run-defender as well. And matins massive. and. That's why they're really not going to see much of a drop off this year even though. They do lose. Robert Win on the other side. They get back tyrone proper to play that defense advantage on base down. And then on top of that we're. We're looking guys. Like doorns Armstrong the backup all. Were hoping to get ready to Gregory back. I think Oldham's man's you complaining to right and the rest of us, truly two hundred and seventy five pounds I, mean should have the place strength to hold up playing. You know that not less thrive defensive end when when the margin Florida's needs are a rapper to war, or you know demarcus Lawrence if they wanna move him, around moved him near the right Friday some pass, rush down. Much. You can do with the guys at the garden. Especially, if a garlic rain, gregory is able to come back and be reinstated. You're looking at a team that that didn't matter. You know hardly any depth after defense events. In Twenty nineteen to having a permanent of interns who've and Derek in in twenty, twenty, one or twenty twenty. So you know with with that being said. who on the defense of Aaron? Slash Altai to rush types on football team come the fifty five man roster car. Starting Augustine, testing audience. Is Guidance I expect to make the team their big concerns them being away from football. Elliot's turns back to link. Get All. That kind of stuff must've area rules by dude think that didn't based on the and is based on article his face on way. Everybody's saying these things to be in the right. Mindset and he seems to really want to be in the Rio Grande football and everything. In mean, there's no denying. Talent I mean. Yes, he's been our league crap a decade, but is a proven guy is at least bring some valuable experience. An active. Do think he can lucky. I mean there's hardly anybody. And last year for the cowboys vs other guy, another weapon in the might Nolan Stack and throw it all so blind in offenses, and all that kind of stuff I do think he I don't think he's GonNa be a Scott Master anything right out of the game I. Think he's GonNa be pretty valuable to this defense Rainy Gregory of theatrics Beckingham. It'd be back researcher waiting word, but I do think the overwhelming overwhelming feeling is that you will be on the cowboys so I expect him to be on the roster. is Bradley and I. I do think he makes the team We did our blocking the boy prediction. guest I was in June or maybe I can't remember. Knows earlier this spring I've been making the team He was the guy again kind of right now gallimore, nobody really thought he was gonNA. Throw that far when the cowboys garden and it Connor God's really value in. He's not the most Athletic Arnold. Fair Short on twitter position. He's not the biggest guy, but you just wins. He knows how. To. Get to the quarterback. I think that's what this team needs He's very good and what he's asked to do. I think he makes the roster. Diene. OPTI. demarcus Lawrence and Crawford walk name. In Armstrong makes the team. How many ones that I kind of law? I. Fix. Yes Dick's. Lawrence Crawford Armstrong Gregory Smith. Okay that makes sense to me arm I. Think than that fix. Number is is a good one One person that I am really ruining for collar and I. Interviewed him after the NFL draft happened, they picked this man as a free agent. That would be. Our rondell Carter He. Just an infectious tight personality, and somebody who's paint was was kind of fun and Jam Yourself. I'm interested to see how how bad all? Maybe he's the guy who can get on the practice squad to suggest. Sorry I'm here. I've used a roofing guy like. That on the border for me, I. DO think actually back on pinterest making a team I'm. Like you I, think he especially now defended fifty five and dancing invested pretty good money. On. compared to the other. Creation State around I do think like you said you encounter both really hot on his film. I do think he has a good chance. You kind of border for me. I think a very good chance that could be for one of their last night. He's going to be a priority practical guy. All right so. That leaves us with defensive tackle. Coal. Right off the Bat, do you think? Trick in Hell make. Football. Team. On. My gut feeling is no. New Coaching Staff I think. Tiebreaker, I think the same coaching staff they they drafted and I know I. Know Ruin McLean. Everybody's on that Front Office but far coaching staff. They really real ties to him. They don't need to keep him to prove his worth or anything. and the the destroyed their move on from a first pick in Taco Charlton early so I do think that if I in hill doesn't turn it around I. Don't see them making the team. I think the data, Gambia fascinating storyline throughout here because if they do only take four at the end of the day. I do think that those four are going to be Jerem appoint on thrown them Gallimore Antoine. Words are because I. Think you know in that case. You would have your two-three techniques in Jeremy. McCoy number Gallimore. John Terry Poem Towards Compla-. The one Antero can obviously up plane zero tex knows as well when you go to on Front Mike thing in which I inhale and why I think they might take five and the end of the day is because. Key can play both the one or the three with Bonnie tight. And, that's just another Bonnie. On a defensive line that might be able to contribute a little bit. I don't be any of the other guys. Have a real shot at making the team. Gary Marino I i. don't really think hours any SORTA shot online. Don't even know if they have anybody else. I missed Daniel. Wise I wish he was still around. Are One of my favorites coming out of Kansas? didn't just didn't really work out here, but. Man. I think. They end up keeping Kristen Hill because I think they're gonNA. Want five guys on the Interior. My only caveat with that is they might not because tyrone Crawford complained found out. That's the only thing that gives me pause. So. I take I mean he has the Kabariti's to be dumping. That's why you to stick around so I mean he's not like his not being like you know like there's talent there are just can't get out of. Your, no, absolutely I I. Agree with you one hundred percent. What do you expect from the defensive line as a whole just before we get out of here? I mean Jim Thome suicide warning the Best D. Line coach in the inner so and he's. Definitely As a really really strong track record on obviously someone that have to do. It's not like he's working no tower in Washington. We know that kind of defense blinds down the AD. Over. There San. Francisco had prime made on this kind of guys, not working talent mean everywhere. He's Bareness seems like they've improved. thinking is Danny Phantom on blogging the boys. wrote an article with this kind of looking at his history and kind of comparing this. That number is not a kind of stats which. Is Different decent Florence compared to the cowboys in the state season. Whoever Thompson Louis coaching better numbers are always be. It's of hard, so look at dinner vacuum. You don't really know the situation a town, and all that kind of and so on and so forth, but I mean he is better. Do you own coaches in the National League I think? The college throughout town like you said and they have a lot more often than they did last year lease Especially of Gregory is reinstated. So that. More bodies turned Crawford Lead Bagheri both teams there. That's to be a big attention to this team. Start expecting not expecting. Any, league derived by any means by. Do think they're gonNA be vastly improved Robert. Robert Quinn's pass rushing ability on the other side like you said he was kind of a liability defending to run I do think demarcus Lawrence. GonNa put out. About your ten awareness, they had a bad year because he didn't but I think appear put up better numbers Ollie's cope and inbox for Damore unless not the most important thing, I do think he's going to gateways I do think he's GonNa average, wrong season kind of quiet. The doubters and all that kind of thing the haters on twitter You know. I think garage been here and. They're going to be fascinating approved arm. Ness any read I think they're gonNA be. Taking big! I would say. Yeah, I think they're going to as well and I believe that we with my whole heart because I. think that they're going to be more creative defensively. Your team hasn't given up twenty points in twenty points per game in a season since two thousand fifteen. We talked about how the defense gets worked at times. But overall, it's been a decent scoring deepen so. Exactly aren't interested to see whether we see more breaking, but Moore's splash plays defensively our. Fascinated. Overall picture is going to look like, but I do think that they're team is going to have more. Baxter themes that I I think that that starts with in doing different things defensively Arman Franz even man. Blitz Jason Smith glitches with nickelback are not nickelback the band, but your actual nickel back on. WHO's going to be covering receivers so? We'll see. I'm excited. Man I! Hope, we can do everything necessary to actually. Have football in September. It's all care sewing meaning to argue be cancelled season. That's all we got for. You guys today. Hope, you guys enjoyed it. Connor should be back for the next episode next week. We will talk about the linebackers, and I assume it's one position were probably wrap in the quarterback. There's three of them. We know who they are. Probably all GonNa make the roster at the end of the day and then we'll talk about the running next as well. been talking to Dr of right to thank blog in the boy, mock media for allowing us to to host this partner.

And we are certainly looking for your feedback. We very much appreciate all of the feedback that we did get into QNA. Lots of people wanna see this done once a week. Lots of people want the particulars for win the q. Win the coup. And a goodness. We do one take which alive. No jive around here when it will be. So I think from now on say we're going to do the Q and A on a Wednesday. We'll announce it on Tuesday. We'll tell you what time it's going to be at how long it's going to be excetera that way, you can get the most out of it. We do appreciate all the questions that we got. And I I mentioned there. I'm talking to you right now once day after noon going to the Spurs game tonight, I'll circle back to that post late Wednesday night and get to all the questions that I missed if you have a question or a comment or a concern, even you can always Email me RJ dot show at espionage dot com, or you can tweet at me at our Joe char that's one of the best ways to get at me. My DM's are open. If you don't want to have it be public. So that's about five minutes of blabbering. It's a kind of get you caught up on things. And a lot has happened in the world of the Dallas Cowboys since we last spoke here on Joe live, and we've had a lot of time. Doc on other platforms since we've had episodes of talk in the star. Who's in the boys and seven five oh with myself, and Tony Casillas Kobe's leased gone. I remember the Buffalo Bills. Obviously that was a big deal and a little sad to see little sad moment. For Cowboys fans. Cole has been kind of a fan favorite for a long time. Damon Wilson is head of the Kansas City Chiefs. Those kind of the big moves in terms of departures for the Cowboys. We all know that they sat out free agency in terms of the first week and Thomas went to the Baltimore Ravens and whatnot. But things have kinda heated up for the Cowboys a little bit on Tuesday. They officially agreed to terms with Randall Cobb the former Green Bay Packers wide receiver. Also, former Kentucky Wildcats gonna March madness. And I liked that move. I really really liked that move. I've said a lot of places already that I believe that this is an upgrade from Colby's Lee. And a lot of people kind of scoff at that. And I get that Randall certainly has had his some injury issues and injury concerns in terms of recent history, but Randall Cobb is different slot receiver than Colby's Lee. Cole has a sense of quickness that I think is very very special. We all have knowledge that, but Randall Cobb is far greater after the catch, then call Beasley I think that goes without saying beyond that Randall Cobb can play vertically, we've never seen that from call Beasley. He's never been able to play vertically yet. Randall Cobb has that in his wheelhouse. And I think a really powerful sort of detail and all this is and I wrote about this. This should be a blog on the boys dot com by the time. You're listening to this. The Cowboys really remade their entire wide receiver group very very quickly year ago, they signed Alan Hearns, and it was okay. Well, got Allen. You've got Dez Terrance, Williams, Beasley you got. Ryan switzer. You know, how's this going to work, and then just penned Monia m- happens and everybody's gone. Alan Hearns obvious still here dealing with coming off of his own injury. But now you have a marker. You have Michael Gallup Randall Cobb take on Austin who's come back. You have Noah Brown. If you wanna give him some love, you have Devon Smith who a lot of people want to give a lot of love to you have landslide. Or and really when you think about those guys, and I'm talking about the primary guys the guys at the Cowboys are going to be counting on weekend and week out. And that's Amari Cooper, Michael Galvin, Randall Cobb all three of them can play all over the field. That's a lot of versatility. We heard the term Dak friendlier ago. It was beaten to the ground that is a lot of versatility. Whereas, you know, the previous regime for lack of a better word for the Cowboys receivers in-depth, Brian Williams, and Kobe's Lee that was very very very very structured very rigid. Very unmoving Dez Bryant was Xia transforms your y and call Beasley was your slot receiver. That was it. That's the only way that things. Got done. And now if you're the Cowboys if you're killing more, and I think we're all hoping for the best there you have the ability to put guys all over the field. That's a really amazing small yet large detail, and Randall Cobb amplifies that to to the degree Aaron Rodgers did did post on Instagram saying goodbye to Randall Cobb, obviously has been his quarterback as long as Randall's been in the NFL Aaron Rodgers quoted Shawshank, Redemption, which is one of the greatest movies of all time. So whatever glad glad that Randall upgraded quarterbacks. If you know what I mean? Oh, that's right and feeling good feeling feeling good now that we're back here on Joe. So that's big news. Other news for the Cowboys. Obviously, we know that they've brought in some pass rush help when you look at obviously the situation at pass rush is is very dicey because of Demark sloan's, and the fact that he still doesn't have a long term contract. I think everybody's still kind of holding their breath on that note, but they did send Kerry Hyder who a lot of people are extremely high on. And that's a really solid move really solid death for the Cowboys. We know that Rodman can make things happen there. We know that the Cowboys are at the time of this recording. At least in discussions with Robert Quinn. We don't know how that's going to go. We don't know how that's going to fall. We don't know if Robert Quinn is going to end up as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. There's a lot of discussion as to the price that it could take two. Trade for him with the Miami Dolphins. And a lot of people believe it could be a fourth round pick in two thousand twenty. And if you told me that's the price that that cost to Robert Quinn and reworked contract. Hey, let's do that. Let's do that right now. And a lot of people have made this point that Robert Quinn as a member the Cowboys gives you what you don't have a democracy alliance which is leverage because right now, if you're DeMarcus Lawrence, dude, you know, that you're all the Cowboys have that's why that's part of why these you can make the demands that you're making. And if you're the Cowboys, you have nothing to have no room to stand no room to stand on. So Robert Quinn, at least gives you some of that. We don't know. What's going to have ranted, Gregory, obviously right now suspended indefinitely. That's a situation that could change because the same you know, how the NFL can be. And speaking of the way that the NFL can be the latest when it comes to douse pass rushers. The hot boys is Tyrone Crawford by now you've likely seeing if not head over to blogs dot com, we have all the details for you. There. Tyrone was involved in a scuffle. Last Friday night in Florida at a bar. The initial details emerged on Tuesday Tyrone was seen shoving some people. It was kind of grainy video outside of this establishment on Wednesday TMZ who first broke this story published the video from inside. And you can see Tyrone getting into it pretty heavily with with some of the bouncers at the bar now. Joy Epstein from USA Today reported that the reason no charges were pressed because the victims involved were from Canada, I think from Ontario Canada, Tyrone Crawford if you're unaware also from Canada. So there is some Canadian love happening there. I guess or piece at the very least. But that's an important. Here's the Tyrone Crawford was not arrested. But an even more important piece is that it's the NFL. It's the court that they operate, and it's the way that they wanna roll there's already been a report of the NFL is in. Investigating this. There was a report on Wednesday morning that they were looking for the video. And the fact that TMZ beat them to video is a not shocking and be means that they no longer have to look because it exists. If you haven't seen the video, it's I mean, the what graphic is a little harsh. But it's it's definitely aggressive. And I think that if Tyron Crawford got suspended for a game or two I don't think that anybody who sinner could really argue that point now, obviously, there's two sides to every story. We don't know exactly what led to this disagreement in the first place. But from what we've seen what we do know, you know, it's certainly possible for time on Crawford to be suspended, which is what makes the potential of landing. Robert, Quinn, all the more large. So that's the other big thing. Other store too big shoot a drop this week for the Cowboys was that they hosted Eric berry for a visit now as mentioned at the top of this episode. They did not get all Thomas in free agency. They did not get Landon Collins. I did not get the guy you wanted. They didn't get anybody. We know that the Cowboys did not going to safety in free agency. But Eric berry is still out there. Now, Eric berry only played in three games or the last two seasons. We all know that we all know about. His heroic battle in terms of the obstacles he's faced as far as health are concerned rightful NFL comeback player of the year award winner by all measures. Eric berry is outstanding person outstanding safety when he's healthy. I've had a lot of discussions with the people from Eyraud head pride Espy nations Kansas City Chiefs website, and they're extremely high on air, Barry, but you know, they're they're cautious in terms of acquiring him. Yeah. I mean, he's great. And but I mean, he's so rarely healthy quotes been flying around all over the place from good friend of the show. Bobby belt that Eric berry is the Sean Lee safeties. And I think that that's definitely a fair way of putting it now if you're the Cowboys, okay? So let's say you did bring at Burien because right now a deal has not been struck at various gonna go discussed with the teams visited their teams who knows what's going to happen. But if the Cowboys somehow did land buried, then all of a sudden, your safety room has Eric your woods, Jeffy. The goat and cave on Frazier. That's not bad. I mean, that's that's not great. I don't think you're feeling stupor pumped about that. But that's not bad. I mean, you have a lottery ticket right there in berry. And you have the best scratcher offer whatever that role would be just made a job of lottery. Tickets and crystal shard imagine Eric berry patrolling Chris Rashard secondary. That sounds incredible. And so if that happens, I think there's rightful cost to celebrate. Because Eric berry is a lottery ticket now. You know, he could be a Pro Bowl caliber player or it could be a whiff because he could not be healthy. And that certainly is not something that anybody wants to see. You know, this hasn't been shocking. If you've been following the Cowboys for some time that the Cowboys have slow played this thing, they were not active in the first wave of free agency, they decided to bring back their own. We mentioned Avon Austin just in March Lillard Cam Fleming. Which was a great move to keep their swing tackle certainly there for them. But other than that the Cowboys they they did not pants. You know, a very interesting study from the QB came out on Monday morning that five of the six least active teams during the first week of free agency or in the playoffs last year. And so you hear things like that. And you say we'll maybe this is the right way to go about it. Maybe the Cowboys aren't these losers? Maybe they aren't idiots. Maybe they know what they're doing. And there is that line of thought I think that that exists because multiple things can be true. So it can be true. The Cowboys are being frugal is a harsh word, but they're being wise that would be probably the best to associated with this. Now a point that I've made several times to Tony Casillas on the seven five. Oh is that the Cowboys? Don't have a first round draft pick, and that's really really important. And I know I know they have Mario Cooper. But they don't have the ability to draft somebody in the first round. And I've said this in terms that I think made the most sense if you were Jason get I want you to just kind of imagination if you will Jason Gary, and you knew that you were in a contractor, and this is more than just a contractor for Jason because you know, your career's on the line if things don't work out for Jason Garrett with the Cowboys this season. I mean, the trajectory of the rest of his career the rest of his life, not to be dramatic here. But is very different is that not fair to say. And so if you were Jason Garrett if it were you in those shoes. Okay. And you knew that you really had to put up this season. You knew that you had to do something incredible to keep your job for to be blunt. And and what is that incredible thing? I mean, I think at the very least he has to make the NFC championship game right because a year ago. Looking at twenty the Cowboys made the divisional of the playoffs and that wasn't enough an extension. They've been there three times out of the last five years and Jason Garrett is still into contractor. So it does seem fair to say that if you had to put a measuring point on what Jason Garrett has to accomplish in two thousand nineteen the floor is the NFC title game. So if you're Jason Gary or whoever you are. I mean, if you're in that spot, and you know, that that's what you gotta do. I find it just extremely puzzling. That you would do nothing in the first wave of free agency. I mean, that's that's really bold right at the very least it's bowl. You can call it wise. You can call it, whatever. But it is at the very least very bold because your internet contractor. You have a rookie at offense coordinator who was a backup quarterback just two seasons ago. Your offense was let's be honest very very bad last season. Except for some stretches that really worked out in your favor. You cut some serious breaks. I think we look over that when it comes to the tooth. Eighteen cowboys. They won that game against the lions on a last second field. They won that game against the falcons on a last second field. They beat the eagles at home for the sweep on the season. Thanks to a tip pass ended up in Amari Cooper, hands. That's three wins right there. They want ten games. That's three wins that if one of those or two of those even all three of them go the other way that we're talking about a very different perception about the two thousand eighteen Dallas Cowboys. And so if you're Jason Garrett, and you know, all of that. And you know, that you don't have a first round draft pick and your team granted has been very very very good at finding legitimate and serious talent in the first round of the draft. You know that you do not have a first round draft pick. How can you sit idly by on your hands and watch? I mean, if it was me, I'd be smashing that panic, but I would be freaking out because I would be thinking, you know, what dude this is not my money here. All right. I have to do what I have to do this season. It has to get done now. And I don't. Have that first round draft pick the best way for me to acquire talent. Now is right here in free agency. And yet somehow someway, the Cowboys still remained relatively chill in the first week for agency. They did not land a big sexy name, but they did Landau Cobb. They are at the very least in the mix Robert Quinn and Eric berry, and if they pull that off if they if they land a triumvirate of Randall Cobb, Robert Quinn, and Eric berry than they deserve a pretty big round of applause. I didn't that that certainly was a little bit lucky. I think you know to be fair. I think that maybe things kind of fell their way, but there's something to be said about that particular strategy. And I think the Cowboys deserve some props for that. So we'll see how shakeout but right now. B minus. You know, I think that that's a little generous B minus just because right now, you still have some pretty glaring holes. You don't know what you're going to say the although exam your woods did give that interview to Dallas Cowboys dot com. And does seem ready and did have some moments that certainly warrant belief in him you need help at defensive tackle. But you do have the fiftieth overall pick fiftieth overall pick. But guess what you can only take one player you can only address one position with that pick. And so and you have to hit a home run here. I mean, you have to and let's be honest also about the state of second round picks for the Dallas Cowboys. Let's look back at this two thousand and eighteen second pit, Connor Williams. Not a home run in his first season with the Cowboys two thousand seventeen to not a home run in his first season with the Dallas Cowboys really has yet to be a home run really just kind of Williams two thousand sixteen Jalen Smith that became a home run. It was a crazy risk. But it worked out good for you two thousand fifteen Randy, Gregory, definitely not a home run. We're all rooting for. Randy. But right now, it is objectively a failure to hasn't fourteen DeMarcus Lawrence, you're in your contracts be right now it did not look like a home run for a long time. Because remember he was hurt his rookie season. He got suspended. He finally came on the twenty fifteen season. Then there was the suspension, and then he's obviously been abused ever since. But that did not like a home run two thousand thirteen hundred pick Escobar. I mean, you know, we can stop right here. The point is the Cowboys have not had a second round draft pick come in and have the immediate success the way they have had their first round draft picks. So they're going to have to wait to get that done or find a way to get that done excuse me on top of all this. And so it's a very difficult proposition. But if they pull it off again, I'll be the first guy to stand up around of the plus, so we'll see how that all goes. We will be back on Thursday, another podcast only episode of Joe live. Appreciate those of you again, reach down central. Congratulations. And who have put up with the crazy, schedule of July. But it does seem like we're settling into things.

Show me of course from ut and from radio humble host on the show it is Wednesday happy Hump Day March. Eighteenth two thousand twenty The new league year officially begins today. That's right the official beginning of the two thousand twenty. Nfl Gear starts at four PM Eastern Three PM Central. That's what one PM Pacific And so that is win. You know the true free agency begins. You know all this stuff that's been happening with this point. That doesn't really matter. That's no big deal. The real juicy stuff gets going today no seriously though it has been a crazy free agency so far obviously the. Nfl is sort of the only thing going on in the world of sports. And there's even more focus on this than there is in a normal year which is you know typically a lot anyway and the Dallas cowboys had a lot happened to them. Not really for them but a lot to them on Tuesday and there's a lot for us to revisit but Certainly want to encourage you. If you have not gone back and listen we have episodes Discussing everything that's happened so far with the cowboys. Obviously Amari Cooper agreeing to an extension. Five years one hundred million dollars. He is now the second highest paid wide receiver in the National Football League on an annual average value standpoint Dak Prescott has been franchise tagged.

So everybody woke up on Tuesday kind of celebrating the Amorini. Seven all the cowboys You know they sort of stared this situation right in the face and they want cowboys got Amari Cooper back. We found out. Espn's Edward or noted In a couple of tweets that Amari Cooper reportedly had an offer from the Washington redskins that would have put him on par with. Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons in terms of annual average value no Julio Jones's pay twenty two million dollars per year and so as Edward R surmised in his tweets if the redskins are willing to put in that class than they were willing to offer him twenty two million dollars per year since he had also a five year deal. Which is what guy with the Dallas Cowboys? Twenty two million dollars times five that's Do Some Quick Math. One hundred ten million dollars now. Mark Cooper ultimately agreed to a deal with the cowboys for one hundred million dollars which if so facto means that Amari Cooper effectively. If all that math is right turn down ten million dollars from our nation's capital in order to stay playing for America's team that's awesome. It's really really awesome. To See Amari. Cooper wanted to be a cowboy so much so that turned down ten million dollars. When was the last time you turn down ten million dollars? Because I can't think of that. I did that but Anyway so really awesome to see a market for staying with the cowboys today recording this Tuesday night about eight. Pm Central time the cowboys have not brought in any free agents but they are certainly trying to get everything that they can done with their own. And that's really what Tuesday was about the cowboys. Lost a lot of people The day got started with. Actually the cowboys. Losing big time. Pass rusher Robert Quinn You know his journey with cowboy. It's kind of been in the making for a while now. The cowboys have had is on Queens. Since he was a member of the rams kind of danced around things obviously. He ended up with the Miami Dolphins for a short bid Byron Jones new team and then ultimately last season. The cowboys are finally able to get Quinn in their building traded a sixth round draft. Pick a great pick Pick while spend. That was their sixth round draft. Pick in this upcoming draft And Robert Quinn had eleven and a half sacks last year so I'd say that that was definitely worth it's not often that many sixth round picks performed well although Tom Brady newest member of the Tampa. Bay buccaneers also in the State of Florida was a sixth round. Pick in case. You had never heard that before anyway. Robert Quinn is gone. Gone Gone Gone is gone for the foreseeable future. Robert Quinn is headed to play. I was looking forward to seeing this for the Chicago bears. That's right Robert. Quinn headed to the windy city. A five year. Seventy million dollar contract It's a lot of money. It's a lot of money to commit to Robert Coin. And hopefully that's a Lotta money that nets the cowboys a compensatory. Pick in two thousand and twenty one. Nobody is dominating the 2021 compensatory picks like the two thousand Twenty Dallas Cowboys which is a point of frustration for many But Robert Quinn now. Joins Chicago bears the bears. Moving on from Leonard Floyd in the process. I mean you tell me that defense can boast both Khalil. Mack and Robert. Quinn I mean. Hey you know. It's kind of like a defensive boasts both democracy Lonzo Robert Clinton I know but anyway good luck to the bears And the cowboys now are in sort of a pass rusher on the right side of their defensive line there are many people that have their hopes pinned to randy. Gregory will see our comes of him. Brian brought us from undefeated through. The Fan has been tweeting a couple of times that June is potentially when the cowboys can revisit the Randy Gregory situation so there is certainly hope for Andy Gregory Fan of the show Patrick Walker Cbs sports had a tweet. Not that he spoke to randy and that there's hope they randy is in fact playing this season. So if Randy Gregory's back I don't know that he is necessarily going to yield eleven and a half sack. But he can certainly mitigate the loss of Robert Quinn Which is I? Guess what you're looking for at this point if you're the cowboys that's that's who they are team mitigate the loss anyway so Robert Quinn's gone which means the cowboys do need help on the other side of demarcus Lawrence. Maybe that is Randy Gregory. Or maybe it is somebody who is in the same draft as demarcus Lawrence. That's right in two thousand fourteen. The cowboys spent their first round. Pick on Zach Martin Not Johnny Manziel. Who was the best quarterback that Mike Evans has ever played with? Despite the fact the Mike Evans will now be playing with Tom Brady They their second round draft pick on demarcus Lawrence pretty good back-to-back picks for the cowboys now six years ago but the first overall pick in two thousand fourteen with none other than current free agent at the time of this recording. At least Debbie on Clowney Clowney who has spent most of his NFL time with the Houston? Texans obviously got franchise tagged by Bill. O'brien who definitely knows what doing And then traded to the Seattle seahawks a year ago. helped the cowboys by beating the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild card playoffs with the seahawks and by help provide some joy and then ultimately it was part of the seahawks team that lost lambofield and the division around. But you'd have cloudy is on the market and one. Nfl Network analyst thinks that that's a good thing. That's Joe Thomas whose grandparents I met by the way now twelve years ago. My Dad and I were in Ohio in the summer of two thousand eight. We went to the pro. Football Hall of fame was the first time we've ever toured it and Ken. We went to Cleveland browns training camp. Now if you've ever been to cowboys camp at the time I'd only ever been in San Antonio since been several times in Oxnard cobwebs campus this corporate affair like you would never believe but Cleveland browns training camp You know I'm sure it's different now over a decade later but it's literally in this neighborhood and it's tucked away and it's so it's so awesome. It's so great and we were there. This was two thousand and eight. So this is Joe Thomas. What second year in the NFL and his grandparents were there and his grandparents. They were dressed out and his grandfather had. Joe Thomas Pro Bowl Jersey and had an orange Mohawk and it was awesome so Joe Thomas has always been a favorite player of mine and Has a great podcast now with Andrew Hawkins who you know? The cowboys were sort of mildly connected to I think when he was on fourth and Long Jesse Hawley and anyway so joe. Thomas is everywhere. He's on network and Joe. Thomas has a take. That's right Joe. Thomas has a take about your county and the Dallas cowboys here. He is Tuesday on. Nfl Network. I think the cowboys are the team that is going to land to David and Connie they just lost Robert twin. They're looking for somebody who can make an impact on that defense because they think they have a championship roster everywhere else so joe. Thomas thinks the cowboys have a championship roster seemingly everywhere else except for the right side of their defensive line. Very kind of Joe Thomas to say I don't know that Everybody agree with these days. Certainly you know secondary's kind of an issue You know there's there's some things to be worked out for the cowboys But still you know and and it should be noted this time of year. I mean you mentioned a big time. Free agents name. You mentioned the Dallas cowboys that take Shirley going to go around around around and around now. A lot of insiders at a more plugged in with the cowboys specifically have sinced announced this. Espn's Todd Archer came out and said he doesn't think the couch fans are going to be buying your W. on clowney jerseys anytime soon but that dream is not fun. It's fun to dream about. You have young cloudy. It's fun to dream. The maybe he's going to be on the Dallas cowboys and he's GonNa be screaming off the edge and on the other side of Marcus Lawrence. So you know what you know. We'll hold onto the dream for a brief five more seconds. Then we'll let it go. I don't think that's going to happen but it was fun to at least talk about for a little bit It's that time of year three agency. You know how it is. Everybody wants to talk every wants to have an idea. And so you discuss it with your friends. So Joe Thomas. Smelly you offer that up but a lot of other. Things happen for the Dallas Cowboys in Canada Ajar. Drop or something. That at least really really really surprised me something. I was not prepared for although I kind of was. I don't know kind of going back and forth. It's hard to know but something that is going to look very operate at the very least in two thousand twenty. So let's go ahead and get into it We'll talk about how Las Vegas is. Las Vegas has a cowboys. Twist to it. Now that's that's always say so. I will get into that as soon as we get back to take a very quick break to hear award from our sponsors hiring is difficult.

Quinn ended up with the Chicago bears and gave me an opportunity to say that a couple of times so I am particularly grateful. The Dallas cowboys though they they have done some things. The Dallas cowboys in terms of adding to their team have not added anybody from an exterior perspective. But the cowboys did apply the Franchise Tag Prescott. The cowboys did extend Blake Jar. When the cowboys did Resign Amari Cooper? The cowboys did resign. Dairy and Thomson. Safety gives them some depth gives them some option. I certainly don't think it precludes them from drafting safety in this upcoming draft however they they wanna go but the cowboys also. We're able to bring back Sean Lee. So hey the general coming back Sean. Lee You know as mentioned is is phenomenon. I think there's any way you can be upset about this. Shawn. Lee's role is very clear. It's very obvious and you know we. We saw that last. This isn't you know I think a year ago we all wondered what Shawn Lee's role going to be like. What's Jason Wins? We're all going to be like we now know we know what Sean these role is going to be with. The cowboys is more of a reserve. He's a plug and play. He's a fillon if late in Van. Berisha's hurt The irony that Sean Lee is now hanging around for if somebody in front of him is hurt Certainly not lost on me and I don't think is lost on new. So that's what the cowboys have done. Also worth noting. The cowboys did not something they did not do pick up the option on offensive tackle. Cam Fleming. Fleming has played for the cowboys for two years. Now coming off the super bowl loss. The New England patriots had against the Philadelphia Eagles at the end of the two thousand seventeen season. Cam Fleming has been the cowboys swing. Tackle he's been You know he's been there guy when when tyrants miss her and I think the cowboys are in a position now that you know don't at all be the person that that suggests they need to move on from time it's Smith but the reality is tyrant is hurt often enough that you have to plan for that. So swing tackle is very important position on the Dallas cowboys. It could still end up being Cam Fleming if the cowboys are able to work something out with him when Free Agency truly officially begins. But it's possible in fact arguably likely that. Cam Fleming moves on elsewhere across the national football league so the cowboys did lose three more players on Tuesday all to the same place now. The Oakland raiders are no more they have since migrated and are now the Las Vegas Raiders. There have been some reports certainly amid nineteen pandemic that a sweeping all world The Raiders New Stadium might not be ready given all of the self quarantining in things happening across the world so that all is up in the end. There's so many things up in the air as you can imagine are not even imagine as you are well aware. Excuse me but But the raiders at the very least whenever they do play football. We'll have three new players that have all come from the Dallas cowboys and remember. It wasn't that long ago. You know. Remember Dwayne Harris ended up on the raiders. Eventually remember Keith. Smith went to the raiders rich beside when Jon gruden emerged from the Monday night. Football Booth member Monday night football on. Espn Jon Gruden came out. Went Back to the raiders took rich beside show with him. The what was then. The guy was special teams coordinator Enrich Casaccia flocked to Oakland to rejoin Jon. Gruden had a history together. And that's when key Smith laughed and all that jazz and sandwich besides really knows cowboys players. Well and rich massage. It went out and got himself a special teams ace friend of the show. Jeff Heath Man Jeff. He is now a Las Vegas Reiter and it hurts. It hurts the goat. Jeff Heath is a raider. Look I got this common all the time because I I stick to the goat thing. A Lot I realized that Jeff is not the greatest of all time. But it's a fun little bit Let us have our fun one last time. All Right Jeff and and and you know what? I mean Jeff. Heats story is so great. He's so easily root for so awesome. You carved out this really special role for himself with the cowboys elevated himself to becoming a team captain. I've said this before. Jeff Heath is not an was not bill bates with analysis cowboys. But he was in that neighborhood if bill bates lives at the end of the road. The middle. The Cul de sac. Jeff Heat has a house on the right or left side of the street. When you first drive when I turned into the neighborhood and you pass the you know the sign that says the name of the Neighborhood Jeff. He had that house in that neighborhood. He was beloved as a member of the cowboys. And we certainly wish him well but he was not the only player as mentioned to join the raiders from the cowboys. In fact not the only player to join the raiders. The cowboys following a coach like Jeff Heath followed rich Besigye and a special teams vein me Collins is following Rod Marinelli who has also rejoined. Jon Gruden is now working for him. Once more collins has always spoken glowingly of Rod Malley. So this isn't shocking by any means but the defensive tackle is now part of the Raiders Defensive Line rotation and you know we we certainly we wish the best every every person but I wish the best for me Collins. The cowboys Seemingly were not all that committed to keeping him they do technically have other options. Hey tristen hill right interest in hill. It's ironically the guy that Rodman seemingly fought for interesting in Hale is now the guy that has to replace the guy that Rodman Nellie took from the cowboys Emily Collins. So we'll see what happens there but this is not a noteworthy. I think You know people have talked so much about the two thousand. Sixteen Dallas cowboys draft class and how influential it was and how franchise changing was. Obviously Zeke Elliot had Jalen Smith. Those are the first two picks third pick in the two thousand sixteen draft for the cowboys was me Collins and then it was Charles Tapper who has since moved on. Obviously we wish him well and then deck Prescott who was clearly fantastic and then you had obviously Your cave on Frazier your dairy traction. Eurico gathers And so you know on and on and on and Anthony Brown of course who can forget about Anthony Brown and so I mean it's seemingly. Looks like barring? You know. We have no idea what's going to happen. with With Anthony Brown if he's going to with the cowboys or move on elsewhere but it looks like looks like All that's left is Zeke Jalen and Dak Prescott but they are big time players and at the very least assuming back press signs his franchise tag which is a big assumption. They will all have received to a degree. A second contract with the cowboys. Although we hope that Prescott gets along trivial but the biggest news without question from Tuesday with regards to the cowboys and the raiders. Is that Jason Witten. Jason Witten is the newest member of the Las Vegas Raiders. Goal Jacket Jason. Wooden the Las Vegas raters. It really happened. That's a real thing that really. It's a real true statement that I'm not making this sentence up. Jason Win is a tight end for the Las Vegas Raiders. What on earth. What what what what. What on earth. How could this have? What on earth all right now. I've said this several times since we've been hearing chatter certainly about what's going to be happening with Jason. Win Know what could be happening. There are a lot of people who thought that he could follow Jason Garrett to the New York giants obviously Jason Great is now the offensive coordinator for the gene. And we heard that Jason. Win didn't really have a market outside of the cowboys and potentially the giants and so this is surprising. Although Jon gruden certainly has has not been boring since he's been back in the NFL. But I'll say this once before I say this let me say every person should do they want to do. Every person should go on how they WANNA go out. Everybody should be in control of their own life. Everybody should do what they want to do. So Jason wouldn wants to play football and he wants to play football for the Las Vegas Raiders. All the more power to him. He has certainly earned that right and certainly has that right. I'm simply saying that I do not understand this. Because if you're Jason Win the one thing missing from your resume is Super Bowl Championship. You don't have a super bowl ring. You don't have that ring Jason when you are very very very clearly near the absolute end of your career. You've already actually reached the end of your career once before I would imagine that if he's GonNa play anywhere. That is not the cowboys they would have to be somebody. That is a super bowl contender. Right Jason if for whatever reason he ended up on the Kansas City chiefs with all say. Yeah I get. Yeah he makes sense. That makes I get it. We would all say that right. The raiders are not a super bowl contender. In fact the raiders play in the division with the Super Bowl condemning candidate shapes super bowl reigning champion Kansas City chiefs. And so. I don't understand this to just go. Go play the motions of it. I mean but again all the more power to Jason Wooden. If that's what he wants to do it will look very strange to see Jason. When in the raiders uniform the helmet look that way. Don't think because it is a silver helmet mostly but the uniform will look very strange and to be fair. It is silver pants. I guess now that I think about it but the Black Jerseys with the Black Jerseys GonNa Look David. Very very very very strange By good luck to Jason Win with the Las Vegas Raiders so that That about does it. Tuesday was very very very busy day. Hopefully Wednesday when the new league year officially begins. We get some. Actually maybe get the cowboys bring in some outside free agents. Maybe Chris Junior who knows maybe it should be on Clinton maybe Joe Thomas No something that nobody else does but whatever else is going on whatever else is happening. We hope again Through all the Times that the world is currently experiencing that all is well with you. Remember if you want you can follow me. Hit me up on twitter or instagram. At Joe both of those you can email me. Rj DOT CO ESPIONAGE DOT COM. And you can do me a favor. You're going to have the absolute best Wednesday of all time. You know why because you deserve it. We will see him. Indiana my friends is always go cowboys and peace out do.

The cowboys are in New Orleans. That's a big game but you know. Hi always know that football is for real. You know we're we're in the Games start to matter when big brother ends the season big brother twenty-one ended on Wednesday night congratulations to Jackson Mickey Season Twenty one in the book so we'll be back for twenty two next summer as the cowboys obviously are beginning their quest quest to defend their super bowl championship. They'RE GONNA win this year but some things that we need to discuss when it comes to the cowboys we'll start with the injury news. obviously this episode that were you know talking on today. is is Wednesday and so you know Wednesday's practice and injury report have not come out on Tuesday. We got got a little bit of concerning news at nine. I'm using that word very very very very lightly. Calvin Watkins. The dos more news David Moore. It's often on the damn in both reported that Amari Cooper had an MRI on his ankle his right ankle to be specific now. It's worth mentioning that the issue shoe that Amari Cooper was dealing with during training camp was with his left foot not his right ankle obviously Mars kind of just been banged up is not the right way to put it but he's been an injury. She's not even like an injury question because there's been an injury bullet point. you know through three weeks of the season and honestly. I don't think that that's worth you know frigging at about. You know if you're if you're on the fence I mean it's football. Guys are going to be hurt guys to play through stuff. That's just the way it is. I mean that's I'm not trying to make you know this football guy moment. You know like Oh you got to be tough and plays everything but I mean the facts are the people are going to be hurt. You gotTA play through ridden. I mean that's what a lot of players do we did find out from Jason Garrett on Wednesday afternoon Wednesday early morning. I should say that League's Xavier Woods was gonNA practice. Take on awesome. We're going to practice the cowboys official practice support. You can read these every day by the way a blonde. The Boys Dot COM had limited participants that were of note. Mario Cooper was limited with the ankle issue von Osten who's coming back from the concussion cave on frazier non injury designation loop Gifford who will talk the second Zack Martin with the back Xavier Woods coming off his ankle tyrone Crawford Michael Gob Antoine Woods where the three members absent from practice actes entirely none of that is surprising but loop Gifford being back to a degree unlimited participant in practice. Obviously it's been a long time since we saw Luke Gifford out in San Francisco. In the preseason. The cowboys kept him on their fifty three man roster and everybody thought. Oh they're going to move on and just phillips and that's what's going to happen. It's it's a matter of time etcetera but no the cowboys you know they have their own plan and maybe Luke Gifford coming back and week four week. Five was the plan all along. The linebacker core has been one that has has been examined. I guess is the best way to put this. People have definitely had their concerns. When it comes to the Kaaba linebacking in court obviously late in vander she's Vanderschmitt. There is a growing sense of tweets. Guess is the best way to put it that are of the degree like doc is Jalen Smith June okay does Jalen look the same to you. There's a lot of thought like that. It is worth mentioning that the cowboys used as is a pass rusher more against the dolphins and they ever really had previously. That's a fascinating way to use him a lot of people thought when when people were still trying to figure out how to J. them work in the cowboys before he had fully returned to his full level of health people thought maybe he would be sort of a down rusher even certainly something that he has experienced with at the University of Notre Dame but yeah jalen fantastic middle linebacker if the cowboys can utilize in the rush game and that's all we saw I think obviously some some more playtime Joe Thomas against the dolphins. I mean they have the linebacking death to do it. That's what Joe Thomas does for them. And to the point of Luke differed I mean if the the cowboys have linebackers that can run in the coverage space and can drop back and can obviously control the middle of the field and send Jalen the more the better you know the the hot boys are coming coming in it feels like the boys haven't really been thing at this season but I think that and that kind of segues us into the next sort of issue that our the next point to discuss and that's Robert Quinn you know it it does feel a little loss at the cowboys added a pretty prolific pass Russia to their defense last week against the Miami Dolphins. I mean the cowboys have him graded with seven quarterback Russia's quarterback pressures and and that's a lot that's a lot for Robert Quinn to have in one game and I found something very interesting. Seth Walter who is a great analytics expert for Espn he had had some musings about at the worldwide leader and he wrote that so far this season demarcus Lawrence Lawrence who obviously got paid over the off season. Demarcus Lawrence has seen double teams thirty five percent of the time coming off the thirty five percent of the time and I know that there are people who feel like well. Where's the War Daddy. Where's the guy that Jerry Jones paid wars demarcus Lawrence whereas you worse tank duty Sin double-teams thirty five percent of the time and if you don't think that's a lot let me tell you that is the most in the NFL and so now all of a sudden you take an incredible pass rusher in demarcus Lawrence who's been inhibited obviously by design by opposing offenses to you know try to disrupt whatever havoc he's able to cause and you add a defensive end on the other side of him in Robert Quinn in who's generating seven you know quarterback you know Russia's seven you know pressures. That's that's a really good thing. I feel like I still feel like that. Element that aspect is not totally being absorbed not totally being appreciates the right word but the cowboys now have to incredibly good pass rushers. When was the last time actually I can answer the last time the last time cowboys had to pass rushers of this quality and we're talking about who they you are and who they were as football players was four years ago in two thousand fifteen when the cowboys had Greg Hardy again. There's a lot of a lot to that. We're not going to get into that but you know what I'm saying but from an on the field perspective when the cowboys had Greg Hardy and demarcus Lawrence Dow is a pretty formidable outside pass pass rush and demarcus Lawrence again. He's been double team so far thirty five percent of the time and if they can get away with that anymore there I mean it's not it's not Taco Could Charlton rushing opposite of democracy. It's now Robert Quinn who's going to make. NFL teams pay and I think that that's a really really really good place to be in as an NFL all defense seventy for Rod Marinelli. It's even better when you have great talent on the inside in Mali Collins in android ones when he comes back obviously interest in hill playing playing in well. I think there's a stretch given what we saw from tristen against the Dolphins Kristen played fair interest was fine and and this Wednesday was Jason Greer. It's first time meeting with the media media since his immediate press conference today after on Monday and he talked about you know they saw some good things from tryst in and he obviously has a lot of room to grow and there's a lot to be excited about etcetera but I mean it's a lot easier for tristen hill to become a better player when he has outside pass rushers like Robert Clinton demarcus Lawrence opening things up for him so I think they will see some some defensive. Change is Greatest Sean. Payton is Israeli adjusting and planning for things. I think it's I think Robert Quinton demarcus Lawrence are due. Oh that's overwhelming. Wellmann and I think that you know thankfully we didn't see Robert Quinn really kind of phased or whatever by the moment the physical nece the physicality of playing football football game for the first time this season I mean we didn't really see that and so I think the more Robert Quinn gets comfortable with this cowboys defense. I think that you know we're in line to see something special but Yeah Hey pass rushers. quarterback sacks quarterback pressures. What are those good for. You know what I mean. They're good for nothing but let's talk about the trenches still but but the other side of it and let's give some credit to somebody who really deserves before we do that.

We talked pass rushers. We talked about the latest in terms of cowboys injuries etc well. Let's talk about something cool. Let's talk about some. Nido and I'm unfortunately not talking about a Houston Astros no hitter because that grant had it spoiled with two outs to go in Seattle. What what what are the mariners do that is good? Why why would they ruin a a No hitter. Do you know how late I had to stay up to watch that it Thursday it was a pretty Winston. I'm thinking I'm all loss. Wednesday was a pretty big night for television. big brother season ended as mentioned the survivor season premiered. MTV's challenged drop into episode those three shows by the way those are my three like reality shows and I know I'm over here like watch reality television and then I three episodes but those are really interesting shows in football season makes a lot more difficult to watch him MHM but so Wednesday nights are typically pretty late for me. They were made all the more laid by an almost no hitter by the Houston Astros so anyway saying with within the the idea of the trenches as mentioned Lyle Collins so pro football focus came out as they always do their weekly ratings and we grades and things like that and I know pro football focus focus can be a little finicky and people there are times that their ratings in their evaluation certainly come under scrutiny under some. You know debate yeah. I think it's the kind way to put it but I think we all understand that we all agree that the premise in the whole point of pro football focus is fantastic work hard and there's good information to mind from and what they do and they put together so they're ranking of offensive line's across the NFL this week after week three guess who's number Wa. I Wa number Numero one baby. The Dallas Cowboys offensive line. The cowboys offensive line is back dude. I mean there was is a very real concern. I think about this offensive line a year ago. We certainly you know saw struggling at times. I think the beginning the beginnings of all the problems for the cowboys in the UK Ed Begin on November twelfth two thousand seventeen in Atlanta that broke the team a lot of ways and it took him a little while to kind of fix things if they are checkmark Dick's. That's Juan checkpoint dates. That's one October twenty second a year later when they trade from ours another the cowboys offensive line is ball and a lot of credit. I mean enormous amount of credit belongs belongs to Marc Colombo. It was really bold. Last season we we remember the Amari Cooper trade but similarly an incredibly bold decision that paid off the couch was firing politics Andrew and promoting Marc Colombo season and I think that I think the Jason Garrett deserves a lot of credit and he's sort of the front man for this the cowboys as an organization. Do they have taken some chances chances on some young coaches. I mean giving them some big-time responsibilities Marc Colombo who is very young they they handed the keys to what is the best offensive line in the NFL and he has returned returned them to that form they handed Kellen Moore of thirty one year old the keys to an offense that had a lot depending on and he has turned it into one of the best offenses in the NFL all at least two to three weeks but so pro football focus has the cowboys offensive line as the best in the NFL The Philadelphia Eagles. They have number two but you know Carson Wentz isn't getting any help or whatever I don't know but beyond the fact that the cowboys are rated as the best offensive line in the league by pro football focus. They have a particular particular. Dallas Cowboys Offensive Lineman graded as the best offensive lineman in the NFL. We're talking individual offensive lineman the best one according to pro football focus because this is in place for the Dallas Cowboys. It is not talent Smith. It is not Travis Frederick. It is not Zack Martin. If you read blog on the boys dot com on Wednesday you know who it is and I know you you read it because I know you were genius the best offensive Lineman in the NFL according to pro football focus through three weeks of the two thousand nine hundred regular season Lyle Collins Lie L. Collins Dallas cowboys sign lyle cons to a contract extension before the season began five years fifty million dollars in new money that fifty million in dollars is very very very very well spent. Can you imagine by the way if the cowboys had not locked up because we were having this conversation basically over the entire offseason. Everybody said Oh they're going to pay death. They're going to pay if they're GONNA pay Amari. you know they'll figure. JALEN AL because he'll be a restricted free agent. They're going to pay demarcus Lawrence obviously because this was at the beginning beginning of the off season. They'll figure out our Jones probably GONNA lose. Cons think about like I mean. It's literally been almost the exact opposite. They took care of democracy. I the shoulder surgery had a lot to do with it. Jalen that was a really kind of surprise not quite at a nowhere but you get the point and then while Collins gets an extension and it it was really team friendly and a lot of it was how much he loves playing for the cowboys and fifty million dollars in new money is a lot of money but I mean the point here is that loud collins got relatively so you know average money for right tackles in the NFL not average average but I mean he didn't break the bank as my point and can you imagine if he he had not signed that contract extension and he was playing like this. The panic would be incredible. I mean the panic would be oh. Gosh was GONNA have to pay down. They'RE GONNA pay market after pay. Barron Orange have to pay lower collins. I mean th there's there's only so much of the pilot. There's only there's only so much they can do. Do they already did it. I mean you know as as great as the demarcus Lawrence Extension wise in terms of getting it done and it's great is Jalen Smith and even as great as Zeke Elliott's right now the contract that's paying off the most of the Dallas cowboys is Lyle Collins. I mean he he is Baldwin out and he's really kind of grown. Obviously season by season started off at left guard into the move to right tackle. First of all was inevitable. All the second of all took some time to kind of materialize but lie L. is and I know that everybody was worried well. What is what does this mean. I mean they drafted Connor McGovern in the third round. He was gonNA play left. Guard and connor kind of Williams is going to swing out to right tackle. What's going to happen at lyles there. Do they have an abundance of riches. I mean they have an embarrassment of riches. I mean they they have a they have a problem that they have so many good offensive linemen and it's a very good problem to have Loud Collins is certainly contributing to that in in that particular capacity but I mean the cowboys. There's so much focus on the front man for it obviously with doing Zeus and I know we talked about them on Wednesday's episode but I mean the fact that they're getting this level of play from there right. Tackle is just incredible. I mean it really is because when you think about the cowboys offensive lineman you think tyrant Smith and you think about Travis Frederick and you think about Zack Martin Lyell is always fourth right. He's always you know when when you compartmentalize the guy was offense environment you put with those three together and then lyle is on his own tier right behind them and then there's a sizable gap and then there's Connor Williams right for a while it was run leary but now it's kind of Williams whatever and I think it's time to put lyle in that category. He's always left out you know again when it comes to number number one just sort of general perception number two the subject of pro bowls and all pros. I mean he's never really put on the same or in the same class as those other three. He is there. He has arrived. Lyle Collins is playing at that level and it's time to put some respect on his name the cowboys quite possibly probably have the best right tack on the NFL and maybe a bit bold they have one of the best right tackles in the NFL and they have him locked up for the foreseeable future. That was a great incredible move. with some great vision to was the future cowboys really lucked out that. Lyle Collins Likes Plan for their organization. I mean you know sometimes you get lucky at. That's and obviously lyle landing with the cowboys. The situation revolving around his draft status was horrible and an awful in a cost them a lot of money but the cowboys were fortunate that they were able to allow cons and it's been a really happy marriage ever since in terms of the success they've been able to have in terms of the contracts have been able to give him think about it. He's gotten to extensions attention already with the cowboys. Considering this is only his wife fifth season with the team I mean it it is it is something that they have they have have kept their word to him and his play on the field has certainly rewarded all of their faith in so lyle collins the best offensive lineman in the NFL through three really according to pro football focus so those are good times tonight before we get Outta. Here is Thursday night football you one in three. Philadelphia Eagles visit the undefeated the food. I said one and three that on accident what the one in two sorry I was. I was looking too far ahead. The one to Philadelphia Eagles visit the undefeated. You'd do it again. Green Bay packers at Lambeau field. It's on Fox so when you when you get a buck and troy game on you know in general I'm I'm I've come around. I really enjoy them broadcast team. but I mean you get them with a classic. NFC Game Packers Eagles is going to be great Aaron Rodgers these are this is a big game a lot of ways. It's one of the bigger games in the NFL you know through week four because this is week four this has a lot of ramifications for the Dallas Cowboys and we had Danny Phantom right about this at the site on Wednesday in terms of who who do you want to win. I mean who do you. WanNa lose. I mean have you on you know. COMPARTMENTALIZE has it but I think the answer is obvious I mean you. You know if you're cowboys fan. You want the Eagles lose. I mean you know as bad as the eagles. Look in some in some ways. He's the eagles have also good. Eagles also have a head coach. It's really good. They also have a quarterback who is really good. I mean the eagles are a few you know injuries away from being in legitimate and actually contending and another Green Bay packers are scary team as well. I know that they're potentially Tim. It's GonNa Influence home advantage and things like that dude. You got to bury the Eagles as quick as you can. I mean you've you've gotta get this team. OUTTA sight outta mind because if if the Philadelphia Eagles are one and three that is far from a guarantee of any kind they won't make the playoffs or something like that but if they are one and three that is an incredibly difficult whole climate of I mean they would be one in three the Philadelphia Philadelphia Eagles would and then here other games after that they got the New York jets in week five then they travelled a Minnesota to take on the Vikings then they go to Dallas cowboys. That's on Sunday night football week seven. That's the week before the cowboys are on there by they go to buffalo after three road games in a row at Minnesota at Dallas at Buffalo and then they get the Chicago bears at home in week nine before there by coming out of there by New England Seattle at Miami the giants at Washington cowboys at home in the penultimate game of the regular season and then at the giants to finish it up so I mean those are you give them two or three more losses and all of a sudden you're looking at ten win team maximum and so. I think that you know you you WanNa get rid of that and I think as painful as it is. If you're a cowboys fan you should be ruined for Aaron Rodgers on Thursday but I think we're in for a good game. I think we're in for a good good time. the eagles have been decimated by injuries so we'll see how competitive they're able to be. I would not count them out. I mean I know that. If you're a cowboys fan you want to you you want discredit them and and I told you it's a lot of fun. I mean certainly on twitter and things like that but this is a really good team and really good teams find ways to get it done when everybody thinks they're so so looking forward to this but I will take the packers. The opening line was Green Bay by four. I will take them to cover.

Foul Play?

Foul Play?

"Yesterday. I don't worry about these days when they have I did not ask any questions. But at some point of occurred to me that the national pastime is here, and it is time for us to talk about baseball. No, no, no. It's talk about tough to put it on TV. I thought open day was over there and Japan gains counts. That's right. Those did counts. Really Israel went over there to quit his job and style, by the way, I missed that guy. I miss each euro. He was I think one of the great Asian of euros. Even though he wasn't really watch the baseball game. I did not even show for my fantasy baseball draft. I leaves those. There's that first name today. Carson edwards. Bo the producer was fouled on three point attempt with one point seven seconds left in Tennessee fight to after the game vol's fans irate with the call. But that's what happened. Two point seven seconds left who I call that a little late in the corner. I mean, there's contact. They also sort of complained about the foot on or off the line. But how Tennessee fans feel about that like they lost? That's what we got. They should feel like they lost. Here's what it is. Is that a file that's not the question. The question is whether or not we think you call it in that particular moment, this is not just intrinsically about the idea of whether there was contact or whatever it is. Did he give them enough room to come down? Rick Barnes said that he thought that it was a foul. Maybe that was just nights him for the officials. I didn't necessarily think that need to be call. Right. I think that was value didn't leave enough room for the Holy Ghost. When he backed up into that player as they say. But you're right. What a foul is in basketball, gives me great empathy for all of these refs. Because what isn't is not a foul depends not just on when it's happening. But also what just happened because before that there was another disputed call in. Which Tennessee vans would say, wait a minute. That was off the other guy, not us, etc. Etc. But because it all happened in that way, a lot of people got angry about it. Even though it happened at another time, it would not have been. So the worst thing about this though, is that was a second half for the ages per do was smoking Tennessee early. And then now the Tennessee have time for the comeback. We had time for basically a great finish. After that. This wasn't just the whole second half about a team blowing leap. No, the lead was blown in. Then it was a heavyweight fight. And we got do CLYDE Ryan client, Ryan, CLYDE. I had never heard of you before this gang. Right. Why was like I got shining moment right here, baby. He was coming up those screen like this. What this guy looks like the great. What for? Let's see we Ryan. That's right. Even of a dribble. And if that one dribble wasn't enough for you look at that. Joe? I was like, wow. He can't get his own show dance. He. Didn't even get a shot. He just made what her do shot forty eight percent from three in this game. One issue though for Purdue was that they shot I believe forty nine percent from the free throw line. Tennessee also shot percent from the free throw line. So there was a chance for this to be a wonderful finish, by the way. But I won't point out that you boy Rick Barnes. He did something particular right after that controversial foul. Non Val thing. We play that was the play that voice seven seconds left in the play was to call time out. And then call another play point one remaining. What you I mean? I look I got my emotion tied up rig bars. No, more, you don't coast, sexists. Again. Rick Barnes did in sixteen years at Texas have eleven first round exit. When you see a play like that as much as you might be mad that Rick Barnes admitted. That was actually a foul. I'd be theories at that was the play we came out with after that hot. I mean, here's the thing. If you're going to do that time right there like that's what it has to be a time out in. Immediately. If that pass is gonna go short, and that's not the worst idea in the world. If that's what you were going to do like, they didn't have a lot of great options back there. Unless you got great hill at crystal laser. Behind the. What's it got to that? They didn't have a lot of other options that you really don't want to come out of a game like this hammer and people for what they did not do. Let me tell you what that whole bracket. Devil reason over there was eight ahead. Virginia heard you reforms the final four and I chose Rick Barnes, and that's my own damn fault. It is nice is Robert Quinn. Former dolphins defensive end has been traded to the Cowboys quiz previously. He would never stop raising his fist or the anthem. But the Cowboys don't allow protests Pablo's, it is becoming an issue. I think it could be an issue if Steven Jones from last July was speaking truth. He was saying that we support our players on their personal issues and causes. And we'll help them do so on Tuesdays. So is this thing that the Cowboys who've otherwise also said we do not allow protest want. These guys stand foot on the line at attention. And all that if proper Quinn wants to defy that policy. He was traded to this team did not opt into this Bowen the last I checked the Cowboys. Kind of need robber wind. Maybe more than Robert Quinn needs. The Cowboys didn't have to be a thing. Right. And it wouldn't have been a thing except people like us notes my Florio notice. This pro football we go over there. And then now we notice that we talk about it here. Otherwise, they could have gotten through this really really easily 'cause nobody's really paying attention to that anymore. So now Stephen Jones basically has a decision to make they went hard at the time. They needed to go hard. They won the press conference at the time. The press conference is there to be one. Now, if I'm them I'm trying to avoid this even being a press conference because I'm telling you, nobody will know unless they decide to be jerks about it. If the Cowboys did nothing, you would get complaints. But by the standard of controversy that we thought was going to be the thing that really did rural the leave all of this stuff has been more quiet all of it. But you say they get complaints from whom who's going to make the complaint persona. I'm sure out there. Right, right. Eight fans. Yeah. But that's not complaints. Anything that has to register not putting this stuff on television like that anymore. Like, this is a non issue for them. Just this long is they don't make it an issue. Now, I think they're probably smart enough to recognize that they can get by on this. But the one thing I will say is I don't even know Robert Quinn personally. But I don't feel like a staredown with the man who stared down death in high school in one then got himself to the NFL his life is something that should come out of a movie, you ain't scared student, right? You're not about to come up to him. It'd be like we're not going to tolerate this. You're going to Baghdad scared. A you know, I just read the story dot com. He was on his way to work at Burger King and realize wait a minute. There's this brain tumor thing, which led lots of people to assume for not only what he stopped playing football that he would die and the quotes from Robert Guinn. If you want to bait Robert Quinn into being the very thoughtful person that he is the guy who can speak about Emmett till and history and slave. Ships and all of that all the stuff that explains why you might throw a fist in the air. You can do that with the better off probably be to do nothing. I really think they're going to do. I think the thing that got Jerry don't forget Jerry went down on a need layers. And you know, what happened? He got booed. And I think he swore at that moment. He would never going to boot again last name is Antonio Brown because Jeremy Fowler has an unnamed NFL source Bo discussing ground, forcing his way out of Pittsburgh quotes. It's a problem. Other star players see this, and they might wanna do the save. And so do you think NFL teams are going to try to confront this problem? I mean, how are they go to confront it? Like, the whole phrasing on this makes me terribly uncomfortable. As though these guys can't come over their own ideas of what they're gonna do. And now of a sudden they got one do route them up to get out alive. And now, everybody's that's right. Aren't acting crazy and everything else? Let me give you a counter example. There's a why don't think they need to worry. Carson Palmer quit his job. Once cars, Paul recited ten year contract in two thousand five and two thousand decided I don't wanna play for you. No more went home put a for sale sign in his yard. And then ultimately got traded and wound up getting more contracts and everything down the line. And I didn't see anybody say that they were frayed quarterbacks within going, go home. So why the hell you so scared now and not only that. But Carson Palmer had one of the people in his posse at the time say something similar to Tonio Brown. I got I got eighty million dollars. I don't need this game. Which is kinda what Tony grounds talking about not needing football. But the idea that Antonio Brown in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Somehow, this Petri dish that other teams will look out and replicate that's a fallacy because what else needs to happen beyond dying your mustache dying. The strand your hair and going on the shop to talk with the Brian James and Antonio, Anthony Davis. What you need is a guy who was still really really valuable a top ten player in the league, you need a guy who loosened the jar of management in Latvian bell. And you need the star quarterback. Ben Rothlisberger to also be down with getting this guy out of the teams. Also have a pretty easy solution to the problem is other like this. Happens. You know, what it is don't do? Nothing. Like don't forget last season before that Julio Jones wanted to rework is deal yet three years left on his deal. Just like Brown. Hit three is lifted us deal the market has shifted since he signed. You know, what happened Julio Jones came to work? You know, why came to work wasn't cutting checks if he not come to work now, you just get into a staredown with him. We saw Kam chancellor try this with the Seahawks. Not that long ago. They stare them down. And then he wound up coming back to work. When did y'all learn how to stare people down, right? The NFL. I think is doing the thing that they tend to do which is take one story of labor being empowered and think this means that all of our institutions crumbling down. But in reality, the giant cosmic ledger of employers and labor, still very employers. All right now coming up next, my Steffi worried about Michael ninety. Download the high noon, podcast and Bill and mind knock knock who's there? Not Pablo's podcast because it doesn't exist. Seaport district few seventeen brought to you by chase. He's EBay Gratiot already out to do with the patriots. I did see that under very mysterious circumstances. Say faith family, you go right back tool, and what else could possibly be up to? Quote. There's nothing there. Semi Cesky about Mike Levin nineties tweet this simply red and Duke dot dot dot. Let's listen. You've obviously had a long association with Nike throughout your career. I'm curious if you have any reaction to Nike grassroots knee wide, the L being involved set of federal okay. And there was an intimate knowledge of the Lord on. I have. No, there's nothing. This so fast. Was like a jet. I mind these are not the rules. You've been looking for that we've been breaking, but he was playing not offense there, but it kind of very pack line defense. He didn't want to get into much deeper with Michael Nadi. Who would seems like we'd love nothing more than to get in the mud with one coach K. Oh, no, no, no. He's playing offense. Because what she does is situations. Like that. Is he plays offense? And he plays offense. Because he knows that guy on the other side. He ain't got no offense. That's what he knows. Listen, listen to the way that may sound when he asked that question should jetski bucked up just a little bit. There was like. Oh, okay. You gotta you. Gotta you. Good. I I just had to ask coach I had no choice. Now. I ain't nobody go get my Cesky. And no setting like that. That's not how he's built coach K like the real answer. He might have given is that it's not that. There's nothing there. It's just there's some stuff there. But it's just never going to be enough stuff to get me. Mike Sheffi in trouble because we've seen that for all of the powers of coach K like the Marvin Bagley thing. Sorta show there or loose as you can kind of connect and kind of say, oh, wait a minute. What is going on even that was not lose? Because that was everything that you can do out front. What makes this thing awkward with Duke? And with Zayn. The fact is is name has come up. All these taped conversations involving other schools was interesting, for example, Bill self is they've gotten caught in this. And he's still got his job, right? In new the man you get to state. That's how this is going next, quote if we play defense like that we can win the title. Said Austin rivers after the rockets beat down the nuggets last night's abode, you agree with ost. I mean, I don't really know what the hell ribs knows about winning the title other than hanging out with his pops. But in reality, they can be that good. There's no reason to say that they not they have been great defensively in the second half of the season. They brought Jeff this Delic deck back in the middle of this year. So that team that was really good defense last year. Not good on the beginning of the year is now good again in his presence. So yes, I think they have a chance to win a championship. If they got other gossip defense that you mentioned has been so good since the all-star break there were twenty fifth in defensive vision for the break. They are second afterwards. Austin rivers is an unreliable narrator as how good awesome rivers personally is. But he is absolutely right. When you realize as we often do realize that what happened last year in the Western Conference finals in game seven, the rockets did not have Chris Paul and the rockets missed approximately one million three pointers. And that's the only reason really why did not actually beat the warriors. The first time around. Well, the other thing though, and I think this for that they miss a million three pointers, and they're only play was continue to take the million three point. You look it up and realize that you don't do this. But can they shut teams down because that's something that the warriors can do that. We don't give them nearly enough credit for is they can put the clamps on you. So the knights their offense isn't working so great or those nights where they get down twenty suddenly up by fifteen because you're not scoring anymore. And they're now hitting those shots the right? It's has to be and the good news for the rocks. Under Delic is that since the all-star break there. Also, I and steals per game. I and turnover percentage forced all good sons. Florida resorted to those drastic invasive indiscriminate spying conceivable by law enforcement. Bob Kraft attorneys. Attempted suppress the videotape. Evidence gets a quarter of the New York Times. Bob LA badly with this video getting out hurt craft real real real bad. And we have seen other owners on tape. We have Donald sterling on tape that was hugely humiliating. What is there any way to this is not the number one all time? Most humiliating piece of evidence in reverence to a sports owner of our lifetime. If this thing gets out there. I mean, he cares. More about this than catching the actual charge. I think then job one if you're representing Bob Kraft is to make sure that this tape doesn't come out. And I would just like to say it is right now do Bob Kraft attorney if your job one is making sure this doesn't come come out. Let me know if you need to intern because I'll do help. Like, all you people out here that call y'all sales. Journalists y'all wanna get to the bottom of this. So you put new you'll pay as you can get this tape, you go ahead and do that. But I'm telling you right now, we all want to see that we are willing to take your word for it. You get it have a witness a notary in there to sign and say that those are the things that happened. That's what Bob Kraft have video. I'm okay with that. But I don't want to watch it. I have not seen any of these catastrophic injuries that have been lately those to be discussed, and you think I wanna see Bob crab at a massage. Parlor hell, no rather watch. Kevin legs, Delaware's, leg breaking half. Bob Kraft would become I think like the frontier being the lobby of the Mimi hall of fame if this. No means out of this. Like if you sit in a crib, and you get a hold of that video. You know? Yes. We came it memes out of this. Wait a minute. You want to watch this. Well, i'm. Hello. What you are. You wanna watch just what you is willing end wants to. Hammy heroin times all of journalists. They want access to it. You wanna watch? I told you that they could get it and tell us about it, and we would be just fun. But that's not good enough for, you know, want to see Bob Kraft at a massage parlor, I just know that with the right hands. This could be a real social engagement on that tweet up. We'll talk about a racist. Boston Celtics fade whilst is gonna love. Well, I guess we've learned with search terms you like while look through is gross sometimes, but it must be sought that as journalists creed that doesn't mean you have to look at it amok recy- dies in darkness Bill. Today's number forty four tell many regular season home games and anonymous Celtics fan has remaining on his suspension for shouting the N word at the Marcus cousins on January twenty six as the rest of the season all of next season. So what do you make of the punish blow? Interesting this happened. And the punishment was laid down before other stuff happened in Utah, right? Like the one in Utah went viral that guy's band for a lifetime. This guy's banned for this season. And then next season for doing this. What I find interesting is DeMarcus cousins when he did his interview Chris that he did not want to single out. What city was that? This happened in canes later reports that it is busted Vagas cousins is like a bad. I still might want to I not a position down suitors. That's right. I need buyers in my marketplace Zia playing I'm good. But maybe not as good as I used to be. But the strange math of this is where my brain goes. We always do the stuff with like domestic violence and. All sorts of very serious things. How does a crime or in this case and ethical crime? Actually, quite two games. It's a really strange math that I don't know if we'll ever be able to be totally satisfied. Well, it's also different here where you're talking about someone who pays you money. Right. Like if somebody does this at your house, you take out forever. You don't come up with a clock. Somehow. He I guess either. They've decided they might want as one somewhere or that come into a basketball game such big damn deal that we came dare rob you of that opportunity for the rest of your life. I don't know because they did have the option of say in UK come in here. No, more and keep in mind. This was the home games. It's up the road games. This guy can still go to many other markets cousin events years. The thing worth keeping in Bob. Because you can't go to other DeMarcus cousins events and contended this is bigger than DeMarcus cousins, but I have seen people who have asked the question. How is that everybody here knows whether or not this is a person to laid out, you know, all that kind of stuff. And I'm like do we want the answer to those because I feel like that's going to? Deep down minority report type rabbit hole how they know faces. It will it's a real slippery slope. And we are at the point because these people who say stuff like this cannot control themselves to something closer to thought police than we were before. And that is the unfortunate circumstance when we all can't act like adults, actually, I would contend that guy who said that the Mars goes probably imperfectly, good control themselves. That was exactly what he wanted to say. In closing. I'd like to offer seven words the ball headed fell at the end of this. I'm judging the hell out of you. Ridiculous students it is testing week. And it's time to slay all day stay woke beyond fleet and get that Gucci breakfast goals. Save bike kalija to that testing stress. Whether it's going to be turfed, right, Chris. Yes. Lit during testing a hundred p chances success. You've got this kid's Steve about that traffic. We look at stigma that. We're talking turn. We'll be issue. No traffic problems around any TV 'Schools to keep you from taking those tests. So get a good night's sleep. Do your best. In fact, be extra extra. We hear it WTO. Al are being proud of you. Steve. Yes. Students day of Steve eighty to give you a last line at the good thing. Steve already came home because he couldn't go cut. It would have to cut his own hair after be involved in this band. Just say no Steve just say knows, Steve what are you doing? This all thing to appeal to kids because kids aren't really watching TV in the same way that they used to be that. Why said they wanna motivate kids? What I would find funny though, is after all of this was done. We get video with Steve leaving their go into his neighborhood bar called like Charlie's. Steve. Let me tell you what they had doing at work today. Never go believe with just nonsense. Stays a other stabili big Alan Nashville sketch tone. Learn strudel ghost. Steve becomes that guy? That reporter when the fly jumps in his mouth. Remember, speaking guy, not lead. Steve I've met him as cool do awesome. It's great video in the history of the mazing in closing yesterday. Mark the twenty year anniversary. And one of my favorite pelvic thrusts of all time is Bob Kraft in this. He is not let's show. The big. Politic villa? So. He rode Chris. Older plexus? And then he got the basketball. This is the problem with it is Chris is right here. You just couldn't fight just too big a Knicks fan. I remember being like, I can't even be mad at shack from me. There's a profile involved to also apple stores ran for governor by the way, how questionable coming up next.

OchoLive: Tank signed | Preseason opponents | Progress report

"Nona. What up world? Welcome to another episode of Joe lie presented you in partnership as always be nations, blogging the boys dot com him. Are Joe me, of course, from BTV and from right here as you're humble host on July. Watch our live shows every Tuesday and Thursday and approximately three PM central time on my Twitter. Periscope or the blogging the boys Facebook live feed, you can also listen to the podcast version of the show every single day. We do have podcasts only on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, but it is efficiently. Tuesday, April nine two thousand nine hundred and make sure by the way, you subscribe, the bog on the boys podcast for you get access to all of our shows. They're so happy Tuesday. It's really great Tuesday. Really fantastic week. Things were really really busy last week from me with the alliance American football folding explained that Monday's episode. If you want to go back, and listen, but it's a big week in the sports world. Obviously the NCAA tournament came to a close on Monday night. It's. Masters week, which is very exciting starting to put together my final picks for my masters pool. So I'm very pumped obviously, the Champions League returned. That's why actually we're flying. Just a hair early on Tuesdays episode to accommodate the Champions League games going on this particular Tuesday. Let's get it done. Man. You tomorrow. I'm not scared, although I'm terrified, but it's time to talk Dallas Cowboys, obviously. And the last time we spoke on a live session of Joe alive. The situation with DeMarcus Lawrence was pending that that is not the case anymore as the Cowboys into Marcus Lawrence. And now officially democracy has a fishery signed his five year one hundred five million dollar contract extension. This happened on Tuesday. Officially the couch tweeted out, David cantor, DeMarcus Lawrence agent, tweet it out. It was awesome democracies. Had a press conference at the star in Frisco. If you did not get a chance to watch that you want to know, what was said, you can certainly head on over to blog. The boys dot com, we recapped it for you there, by the way, came let's. Says no on Facebook another thing happening in the world of sports. It is Dirk nights in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Certainly I'm a Spurs fan personally. But I'm not one of those Spurs fans that hates the Mavericks. So hope all Dallas faithful enjoy Dirk night. I am actually attending. Wednesday's Spurs Mavericks game which could wind up being the last game ever for Dirk Nowitzki. If you're going to be there shout, but either way DeMarcus Lawrence now officially signed again, one hundred five million dollar extension for him. This is fantastic news all around. I thought he said some really interesting things in his press conference. He was really humble. And I think this really makes everybody a bigger fan of DeMarcus Lawrence. I know that he had kind of lost some people by the fact that he sort of used the pending surgery some leverage, and I think ultimately, you know in situations like this. I know I speak for myself, obviously. And I know a lot of people feel this way. But I get it. If you don't that's just the way phantom works. I'm always a fan of players getting as much money as they can DeMarcus Lawrence. He realized that. He would never have that much leverage ever again in his life. He maximized it and he pulled off one hundred five million dollar extension as a result. So good for de LA. But you know, DeMarcus was very very humble he was very thankful. You know, he talked about how he was very glad how this money's going to said he and his family are for future generations. He talked about how he was just really grateful. I mean, he kept talking about how he was which I think is a really powerful thing for somebody who just signed a hundred five million dollar contract extension. It is worth noting. This was reported by the way by our breer in Sports Illustrated on Monday, we wrote about this as well be during the negotiation process, which we have learned since since everything has reached its fruition during the negotiation process things were obviously contentious. When you're dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars things can be that way, but DeMarcus Lawrence his agent, David cantor had during the negotiation process advised. His client DeMarcus to tell the Cowboys Welt trade me kind of told him. Hey, dude. Tell them to trade you call their bluff, whatever in DeMarcus Lawrence said not. I'm not gonna do that DaMarcus Lawrence wanted to be a member of the Dallas Cowboys didn't wanna compromise anything that would make that not happen. And I think that says an awful lot that says the de LA really likes the Cowboys have going on he believes in their future he believes in the program. And so I think that that is fantastic news fantastic all around, but either way DeMarcus Lawrence now officially back with the Dallas Cowboys getting his shoulder surgery done on Wednesday. That is fantastic news. There was a question earlier on the periscope side of the stream where do we rank the DeMarcus Lawrence Robert Quinn book and duo across the NFL when it comes to pass rushers. So I'll put it to you your comments on Twitter. Periscope in the blog, the boys Facebook live feed as this is one of our live shows for the week if you had to put it on. Maybe you don't have to put a number of top ten top five top seven, whatever you wanna say DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn where does that rank by the way, dad do Texas with throwback? If you've been following me for a while asking if the DeMarcus Lawrence thing happened because I got a haircut appreciate it. But I did not get my haircut until Monday. So technically cannot take full credit for this. Ricardo on periscope says I prefer Andy Gregory tank disagree with you. I think that today. Robert Quinn is a better football player than Randy Gregory. But certainly I think we all believe in the future of Randy, Gregory, assuming he can get back on the football field. But the combination of DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn is enticing. It's probably the best pass rushing duo the Cowboys have had since what since DeMarcus ware and Greg Ellis. I'm being you know, honestly, you know, there was the one, you know, year of Anthony Spencer. That was great production for the Cowboys. Maybe that year if you want to isolate a particular season, but if you're talking about talented players on both sides, I think DeMarcus ware, and Greg Ellis is is why you have to go back to. So I think that that is a fantastic little combination for the couch to have their pass rushers are now legit Gary on. On the bottom of the Facebook live top five I've been flirting with top five. I think that you know, you look at it. It's hard. I mean, it's very very difficult to be top-five defenses a whole to be a top five pass rushing duo. I think that obviously you look at Denver's got going on you look at what the chargers have going on those are some formidable pass rush duos. But obviously the Cowboys are in that conversation. And both of them are under thirty years old. That is the big big big. Plus when it comes to the Cowboys pass rushers in DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn. If ready Gregory is allowed to play at any point this season, obviously than you know, you really cooking with gas. I posed this question on Mondays episode of OJ alive, the podcast only top Charleston and you fill in the blank on Twitter over the body of the Bush Facebook laugh taco Charlton is the what best pass rusher on the Cowboys right now if you look at their roster today don't count any upcoming rookies or anything top Charleston is the what best defensive end on the Dow. Cowbridge chase says fifth on periscope. And it's hard to argue with that. I mean, I think fifth Christopher agents fourth on periscope. I didn't fourth might be taco ceiling because you're talking about. You've got to Marcus launch. You've got Robert Quinn. You've got Tyrone Crawford that right. There is three. And so talk Charlton at the absolute best is fourth. If Randy Gregory is obviously on the roster then that bumps taco down a spot. So that would make taco fifth at the very best. It takes Randy Gregory being suspended for taco Charleston to be your fourth best pass rusher. Which is not good of a former first round draft pick Ricardo impair scripts as he's been a disappointment. He certainly has you know, so much has been going on in the media with Aaron Rodgers Tonio Brown and not the top Charleston did anything to that level. But last Friday when news of the DeMarcus Lawrence extension broke taco Charleston got into it on Twitter a little bit and was not a good look for him. It's a very very weird thing that taco trough. And has been up to lately on social media. I think that you know, I think I speak for all of us when I say, we hope that taco trout and turns it around, and we hope that he turns into a great football player because that would help the Dallas Cowboys. So hey, good for him. Eric Mormon points out. The Tarrant Crawford us play inside look, but the Cowboys have used Tyron Crawford everywhere. And so I would qualify Tyrone Crawford as a better defensive end than taco Charlton to forget back to that point. That's just kind of taco ranks on the totem pole for the Cowboys. As far as as their passions are concerned the other interesting comment, by the way, from DaMarcus press conference was that he said he was never going to hold out. He said he was never going to be in a Levy on bell situation. That was certainly great to hear. I mean overall, it's a great time. I think to be a Cowboys fan. The future is bright. The Cowboys superstars or all young all under the age of thirty year are a lot of reasons to believe in this team. There are a lot of reasons to believe that this team has the best roster in the NFC east regard. Of whatever oddsmakers tell you. Because a lot of people are going to be drinking that eagles cool with the Cowboys roster. I mean, we're talking about team that won the NFC east last year and has kind of sneakily improved. The Cowboys have have made some low key great signings, obviously with Randall Cobb, obviously Christian Covington, obviously, a lot of people have a lot of faith in Georgia loca. And if the Robert Quinn trade materialize into something special than, hey, hang your hat on that. It is Tuesday's episode of Joe live. We appreciate those of you who are watching live some news that broke right? As the DeMarcus Lawrence press conference started the Dallas Cowboys preseason opponents have been officially announced. That's right. I know that we have all been holding our breath we've all been waiting so that we can find out who the Dallas Cowboys are going to play in the preseason. We've known for some time that the Cowboys will be visiting the Los Angeles Rams road game for the Cowboys a home game for the Rams, but that that game will be taking place in Hawaii, miss Congeniality. Tommy that Aloha means. Hello goodbye. But the. The Cowboys four preseason. Opponents are officially said the first week of the preseason. The Dallas Cowboys will visit the San Francisco forty Niners. Not a shocker considering the Cowboys traded Oxnard, California. They typically visit the chargers or the Rams and the raiders and the forty Niners to make the whole situation a little bit more amicable because they stay there in California week to they will be heading to Hawaii their second west coast game. If you want to call it that obviously Hawaii is is its own sort of monster of a trip. But after that the Cowboys will return home for their final two preseason games. We don't know the regular season schedule, although as we are approaching mid April. I would imagine that the regular season. Schedule is going to come out sometime in the next two to three weeks definitely before the NFL draft. But week three of the preseason. The Dallas Cowboys will be hosting the Houston Texans. We have seen the Cowboys and Texas square off in the final week of the preseason over the last couple of years the governor's Cup as a lot of people certainly know it as as it's technically referred to as but. The Cowboys and Texans will in fact me in the dress rehearsal this preseason period, which is interesting. And finally the preseason finale for the Cowboys we'll be a home game against the Tampa Bay. Buccaneers Bruce Arians comes to town gel McCoy maybe who knows what the situation is going to be with him. Obviously he and the bucks have been on separate pages at least up until mid April of this two thousand nineteen calendar year, but we had a question right now. On periscope win is training camp. The training camp dates we do not know that yet all of this is still sort of up in the air the NFL finalizing all of that over the next couple of weeks as soon as the training camp dates are not only we'll have you covered with that information blogging was that calm. I should be out there for a whole week again. If you're going to be out of training camp. We will certainly do our best to say Hello. And just like we did last year we should have a blog on the voice of meet up. So that will be a lot of fun as well. But only one preseason opponent for the Cowboys is a team that they will play in the regular season. Obviously that is the Los Angeles Rams that was the last game to couch. Played is it wasn't divisional round loss for the Cowboys, obviously against the eventual NFC champions. That's kind of cool. Christopher waiting with a great point, by the way on periscope says can't wait for all their nothing speaking of the Champions League. And again, it's on at the moment. You and I are talking I loved the all or nothing on Manchester City. I'm anxious to find out who all or nothing is on which team and fell films chronicled over the two thousand eighteen season. Obviously, we know the two thousand seventeen dollars Cowboys were featured on the show a nominated for an EMMY that season is by the way sports. Emmy so good for NFL films. I I don't know. I don't know who I wanna see I don't know who I wanna see on all or nothing last season. It is something that always Piques my interest. We will definitely have Shannon firm on July to discuss everything show is comes onto such a great job taking us behind the curtain in terms of what went into all or nothing and whatnot. So that about though for Tuesday's episode of Joe live. Remember Wednesday will be. Podcast only episode and Thursday, we will be back for another live show at approximately three PM central time. We might fly a bit earlier because of the masters and whatnot. So so enjoy enjoy the masters into the Champions League. Enjoy the NBA playoffs and gel playoffs. Everything coming around the bend.

And brought to you by way of blogging, the boys SP nation, and the vox media podcast network. We are your Dallas Cowboys podcast here. We liked to drink cold beverages and glove talking about America's team the Dallas Cowboys. You know, me, folks. My name is Michael Sizemore, you can follow me on Twitter at Mr. Sizemore. I have been falling in writing about the Cowboys for a long time and currently contribute to blogging the boys and with me as always he's the man of the hour. He's too sweet to be sour, folks. My colleague at logging the boys the Walter Matthau to my Jack Lemmon, Mr. Tom rile. Yes. Although him on Twitter at Tom rile BT be it has been several weeks since we've been in your ear guys. But a lot of stuff was just started to happen in the last couple of days as far as free agency goes the Cowboys sat out the first week like most people believed since we last spoke with you. You know, the last thing that we talked about was Jason Witten joined in the team, and then some other possibilities for the cowboy. So we'll just run through those real quick the Cowboys. What they have done in free agency. This year is I you gotta start with what they did with their own. They did sign Sean Lee to a one year that restructured his contract from a seven million cap figure to three and a half. They're clearing about four million there. They did resign. Jim is all Wally the fullback to three year five point four million dollar deal. They signed a tied in Cody Miguel, ROY he's more of a futures tight end signed to a two year one point zero eight million dollar contract. They did resign. Cameron fleming. Something that Tom, and I talked to you guys about he is going to be the swing tackle going forward for for two year, seven and a half million dollar contract. They went out and then resigned on Austin, but they also signed Christian Covington the defensive tackle from Houston on a two and a half million dollar deal Kerry, Hyder defensive tackle and defensive lot defensive and he's kind of versatile guy. They signed. Him from the wyans recently, and Randall Cobb they signed Randall Cobb to to kind of supplant the loss of Kobe's Lee Kobe's Lee signed a four year deal for twenty nine million dollars an average of seven point two five million per year with the Buffalo Bills. The Cowboys went and signed Randall Cobb for one year five million dollars deal. So they save a little bit of money there as far as they've lost. They've lost. Jeff Swain to the Jacksonville Jaguars on a two year deal. They lost Beasley like we mentioned. They lost Damian Wilson, and they are still trying to work some things out with DeMarcus Lawrence. We'll we'll probably have to get to that at some point. But nothing's really happening there. They did resign. L P laddis are long, snapper. But we've known about that one for weeks, Tom, what is going on my chest. Well, the Cowboys are doing some very smart things. It looks like and I've got an actual correction. On what you said. Yep. With what they've got was Christian Covington, according to spot drac are skewing me over the cap. It's only a one point seven five million total value. Well spot track has two point five. Who cares where just the Cowboys are starting to do some work in free agency? But that's not all we're hearing, Tom. There's apparently the Cowboys are kicking tires on a few other guys. Why don't you? Go ahead and break a few things down for us on who the Cowboys are looking at well, the the big one right now that. It was it's really an interesting situation with what's supposedly going on what's rumored to be going on and all that stuff. And that's Robert Quinn. The defensive end out of the Miami Dolphins who have apparently gone into a full-blown tank. So it's he came in visited the Cowboys. Then there were rumors that he was going to go to visit with the New Orleans Saints. But apparently he never showed up in the Orleans. So the indication is that the the Cowboys are working out a trade with the dolphins for a day three twenty twenty draft pick, which is like peanuts. And the the sticking point right now is the extension that Quinn wants to come play, which I'm guessing he wants three years, and you know, the Cowboys may wanna try to go shorter. But you know, it's it's right now how much is the market for him, and you know, Cambay workout some number seems to be what's going on. He had a long visit. And it looks like something could happen. It's just a matter of is it gonna happen if he comes in. He's automatically your number two edge rusher. Assuming DaMarcus large is going to be there now signing that we're trying to trade for Tom. I got a question for trying to trade Robert Quinn. Now, do you think that that is more of a DeMarcus Lawrence type thing trying to get some leverage with DeMarcus Lawrence negotiations, or do you think that you know, because Robert Quinn is a pro bowler. A former all pro I think do you or do you think this is more about Randy, Gregory and the situation that's pretty fluid at defensive in right now. I think it's more about Randy, Gregory. And let's face it. The may possible suspension coming for Tyrone Crawford to quite possibly there with tyrod cropper being involved in a nightclub shoving match with some off duty police officers. So. The Cowboys here they have a lot of things going on. And and I've ridiculed them last week because I felt that Dallas needed to get involved. They and honestly they actually surprise me a little bit because I think that the Cowboys they don't have a lot of draft capital to work with this year and going after a free agent or two or something that is what I thought the Cowboys need to do to get some impact there, and you and I had spoken about it before Tom about the tabloids to get some impact players because they don't have any huge needs. But with now with that situation with Randy Gregory and now Thailand Crawford's in there, you got something is muddying up the waters here. So that's kind of I believe the Cowboys needed to go. Do you know? Robert Cuevas, probably looking at some of the things that are going on with potential, suspensions and rubbing his hands. Because I think that's giving him some leverage to get the deal. He wants. And I think he would be worth decent deal. You know? Now, they've got to figure out how to do that without upsetting DeMarcus Lawrence anymore, and you know, possibly going to pull them more pressure on him to get something worked out with Lawrence sooner than later. So if yeah, it's the defensive institution went south in a hurry in some ways, but they're so much certainty. I mean, if it turns out that a Crawford gets a couple of gays because the bar fight. This was a domestic violence. We don't know what happened before all videos because. Had you know, was there some provocation something that happened to get all this started that mitt didn't did not get onto the videos, you know? And we don't know what's going to happen was Randy Gregory because there's rumbles that the NFL is looking at a kind ler kinder gentler marijuana policy for people that have diagnoses like he eat us. And you know, I think also it's just the Cowboys are doing their due diligence in a lot of areas because they are trying to capitalize on having a lot of young talented players at quarterback running back wide receiver things that they're going to have to pay pretty soon those positions. So you bring in Randall Cobb here, and I think you have a little bit more of explosiveness with Randall Cobb than you may have had recalled Beasley although Kobe's Lee consistently gets on the field, whereas Randall Cobb has had a few issues staying healthy over the last couple of years. What are you? Make that Randall Cobb signing by the Cowboys. I I was very pleased to see it come about. Because first off that's the kind of a name player that the Cowboys. Usually don't bring in. You know, he doesn't have any question marks outside of the hilt thing. He doesn't have any character issues. And it just seems like a very smart move. And if he's healthy, I think he gives them a very good off, for Beasley in the fact that he's just as productive over the middle, and he's got more breakway capability and just to be honest. He's a bigger target. Yeah. He has a big. He also has his numbers are better than Beazley's. Even though he's yeah. He's only been in have only played like three three games more than Beasley over the career. His numbers are way, better need, doubles Beasley averaged touchdowns for game and stuff like that. And if you look at that depth chart, Tom you talk about Dak Prescott his ability. With his legs as well. As equal Elliott, Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Michael Gallup tape on Austin and Alan her you're looking at a lot of explosive ability. Yeah. And it's you know, there's a possibility that maybe Hearns might not even wind up making the Stirrup because they've got a wildcard like Cedrick Wilson out there who could come on and claim a spot. So there's a lot of potential lead the wide receiver this group as compared to what we were looking at last year because you know, you Gallup's going to have a year under his belt a full training camp to develop boatswain could come up could come on strong. Again, he was coming on very strong last year before he was hurt. And you know, you know, what you've got with. Mario Cooper, you know, and you know, Allston, I think he is going to be your return specialist, and that's going to be go ahead. Sorry. Yeah. I would. Is going to say, I think that's a given the deal that they did on him for a couple of million for one year. I think that's the role. He's looking to fill, and you know, he'll he'll so music and spots on the offense. But you know, his main thing to get loose on punts and kick returns, it just really feels like the theme for last year's playing out this year. They're becoming more Dak friendly that offense is what I yeah. It's really they re signed the offense of lineman, Tom that got made sure that they short that up is also go get all these explosive offense type players because they want to give that Prescott they wanna give him every chance he can to succeed in the offense. And this funny. Could you mention the signing Fleming, which was the thought that popped to my mind to insert for you? But you've got do it before. And you just I just like what they're lining and don't forget you got Whitten back. You know? You know, who no matter? What else she paid Winston there? He's a great safety blanket. You know, he manages to catch balls when you need a ball called. And you know, he's he's pretty good at, you know, getting within a couple of feet of the first down marker and falling down after con- begin it. So you know, he doesn't offer you a lot of yards after the catch. He's very good at knowing wearing needs to get the ball. Exactly. So, but I was so yeah. Take a quick break. And then when we come back, I wanna talk to Tom a little bit about some more. Dallas cowboys. There's some other guys the Cowboys are looking at. We'll be right back on the Bruce and the boys podcast. And we are back talking to Tom rile from blogging the boys at Tom row, BT me. You can find me at Mr. Sizemore, we're talking about the Cowboys free agency that guy in a little active in the second week talent. So the Cowboys did look at some safeties. I know one of 'em re-signed the colts. But could you just run down the safety that the Cowboys have taken a look at and who they might be interested in. Oh, come on. We're just talking one name right now. Eric berry he came in for visit. I guess the same time Quinn was in. Or would Cobb was can't remember what day was actually it's weird because we hear it is Thursday. Everything's happened with the Cowboys since Monday and feels like it was two weeks ago because it's so quiet, but the quieter it seems the better off that looks I think for the Cowboys to pasta these guys and they got busy on Monday. Like, you said, adding some names at you know, they're looking airy. Which is you know, another thing where they did a physical which I think is what they're probably mulling over right now. Do they fake? He's healthy enough to come back and go in in be that impacts de to pair up with exam your woods, if they're looking for, and yeah, I think that the, you know, we're just waiting to find out. The Cowboys are willing literature on him. And you know, they have added the room to make these moves. What's really surprising? You know? After they tagged Lawrence. You know, just woah awhile. You know, nineteen million cats and everything but today, Mike Fisher tweeted back sitting on twenty four million in cap space and them were money to be what's. Yeah. What's really really fascinated? I'm working on a post literally was, you know, a mother column to it while ago while while we were getting ready to go. And you look at the what I consider the likely to make the roster free agents they signed I mean on skipping the camp body tied in long, snapper, the men because they don't they aren't gonna count. But what the names I've got picked up in free agency, including signing their own take on Austin ran Chris Covington Cam Fleming, Kerry, Hyder, I really like assigning LP will do CA. A Justin March Lillard who's probably gonna make detained Jimmy's only Wally ally who they apparently plans on because he's the only three year contract out of the deals. They got in mind. And then Jason Witten the total capping from that. What is that eight names eighteen point eight five million? That's crazy that. Yeah. I mean that is that is Steven Jones working some cat magic here. At that much addition to the roster for for what is just almost you know is just so reasonable. I mean, this is this is bargain been shopping in doing it. Well, yeah. And I'm glad you got their time. I wanted to talk about that because you know, over the last several years the Cowboys have been very reluctant to spend a lot of money. They're one of the one of the teams that you know guarantee the lowest amount of money in in free agency. But you know this year when they had a lot of they had a lot of cap space to look to move around with more than they've had in the last several years, they are still kind of being very diligent. But they started to do something different which I think is kind of where the NFL is heading towards in. That is trying to take advantage of those one year deals, you can get, you know, trying to go after guys that you can get on a one year deal that will be you know, you have a ton of upside with you have a ton of upside with Randall Cobb, and if he doesn't pan out you didn't really invest that much. So that's kind of think they're looking for as they're changing it up by saying let's go after some name players. Eric berry hasn't played three games in the last two seasons. Okay. But when he has played he is one of the best at his position. So it's yeah. Of Lucan for where can we find? We're can we take advantage of the market here by trying to get some guys to bed on themselves in maybe that works out for us because we get the ultimate value which is production. And you talk about the, you know, the the taking a bet on some stuff and everything. The thing that jumped out at me when I was looking at this. Now, we don't know any figure on Randall Cobb or L P Lucy, but outside of them, the guaranteed money what they might be on the hull on for dead money at something doesn't work out four point. Oh, five million for all of those names? That's why they pay they pay us on. That's nothing. They do walk. Let me check with binding effort to send the check. Yeah. Look for a big one. Though. But that's you know, they're they're not getting themselves of hook. But contracts aren't just, you know, cost effective, but they're smart in the not locking themselves into a whole lot. You know, now, they may have earn teed all of cobb's contract, and they may have guaranteed. Eat all do say's contract. That's still just kicking it up to ten million in teams. Last name is Sizemore. And I am my last name is French. So I'm going to ongoing. Correct. You it's lattice. Let's go. Sar? Yeah. They I knew some day disrespect up in mind in Maine. How dare I come on disrespect French? We also Franch. Oh, welcome. Welcome back, America. We love you. But. Yeah. But yeah, it's it's, you know, this is just this looks like they are getting very smart and doing other things which is just I see a lot of potential a lot of upside the some of these signings, and you think about that that you were talking about the money of it Randall Cobb, they are paying three million less than what his vowed his market value was. He was valued over Colby's -ly at about eight million per season, and they're paying less than that to get him on a one year deal. They're taking advantage. Like, you said, Tom and one thing I would say about Robert Quinn now that's not a free agent. That is not somebody that they're looking to a let's take advantage of see if we can get a discount here, whatever they're actually just trying to fortify their defensive line. And if you have if you're able to work it out to where you have to markets Lawrence on one side, and you have Robert Quinn on the other. I don't mean to be rude or anything to Mr. Randy, Gregory. But to hell with thinking about anybody else at that point. You got somebody at several years, but but if you do have in there to come in and be the rotational end. Yes. Yeah. There. You know, you're looking at some really good production coming from that defensive line. And that's what they need Tom because let's be real DeMarcus Lawrence had a pretty good season again. And he deserves to get paid. He needs some help. And just if you wanna dive a little bit deeper into it. This might let them kick uncle Charlton inside on the line, which there's a lot of people that think. But three tech might be a better use of his skills. Yeah. That that could be true. And you know, taco Charlton is looking for any type of way he can break into this because he's kind of had an underwhelming two years. So far with the Dallas Cowboys. But yeah as much as I ridiculed them in. You know, had said how I was unhappy. Just kind of my opinion was that the Cowboys were bargained been shopping and hoping for you know, they were gonna get bargain bin results sometimes because up until these types of signings, and we don't know what they're gonna turn out to be the the best signing over the last couple years has been Joe looting. And he's a backup center. I just wanted to see the Cowboys get a little bit aggressive. I feel like they're getting a little bit aggressive. They're taking a few risks calculated risks. They're not going to jeopardize a future of their team because they are one of the younger teams in the NFL. But I do feel like with some of these signings Randall Cobb or going after possibly scene of Eric berry. She has something to give or Robert Quinn. Any of these guys carry Hyder, you mentioned underrated signing. Maybe just maybe the Cowboys are gonna be able to catch lightning in a bottle here by getting some production outta guys that they don't have to invest long-term in right now. Yeah. And I think this of looking to what they've got to do because you know, they still got to work out the Bill with Lawrence. They they've got Dak Prescott that they want to extend the gut Ezekiel coming up, and they've gotta figure out something with Amari Cooper, because he's got one year left is deal. They're gonna wanna keep him so buyer Jones, even though Mike Fisher thinks that. Yeah. Jones might be the odd man out. You never know what's going to happen there. Yeah. And it, you know, it's the, you know. Football roster has so many moving pieces on it. But it's it's going to be just you know, it's just this looks like a kind of free agency for the Cowboys. If you if you also add in the potential, Robert Quinn trade there is aggressive nece here. They are looking for more talent than I think they have looked for in the past. And it's like. Yes. And I think that that are kind of getting more into that all live mode. Yeah. And you know, they should be because you look at a lot of teams in their position. Now, a lot of teams don't have as many ten plus million dollar players on their roster. But as the Cowboys do at that offense of line of there. But if you look at the Cowboys do they have young quarterback, they need to take advantage of that be of once you start paying the quarterback guys. You start losing pieces. Yes. And it they're try. They're trying to to do both trying to get a lot this season. But they're doing away doesn't handcuff them in can help going down the road. You know, SICOM comes back and is kinda like primetime Cobb back. It was really a producing. Well, the be you you bring him in and see if you can get a few more years out of him. So you've got the young guys Hyder and the other than you know, as I think of it not that got to Chris coating on the roster. Have you do that? And you know, these are people that they can pick and choose who we eat poodle. We let go, you know, who there's a lot of guys that might go in they signed somewhere else. And now sudden looking at picks. Is is just a lot of afford thinking here, and it it's without sacrificing short-term now. That's right. You said it best forward thinking without sacrificing short term. The Dallas Cowboys are getting active in free agency. Folks, you know, we're going to try to be back in your ear as soon as we hear anything about this Robert Quinn. We're waiting on pins and needles to hope the Cowboys can swing a trade like this because it really really do significant upgrading their defensive line depth chart. His name is Tom rile.

But then anyway, they went and also pulled off a trade on Friday. Was it Friday? I believe or Thursday. They pull off a trade show. Robert quinn. It was Thursday. Yeah. This stuff is rolling along so fast. It feels like so much longer go than it actually was. Yeah. You look at what the Cowboys have done though, Tom. And I you know, I chastised them in. I got to apologize because they really got to work over the last eight weeks. You have to be ready for it. And it's I met I've gotten a lot calmer about it. The first week of free agency. I just kind of drift along looking at the little birds singing than the trees and ory about it. Because there's gonna be, you know, big huge multi year deals announced for a lot of people that in a year to most of them are not gonna look so good and accountable is just wait. And then they get all that I wave out that relate started talking to safeties. That's when they started researching stuff. That's when this whole thing with Quinn came up, which is just like. Yeah. That's a phenomenal move. That's the best move. They made. That's the move you. And I've been waiting for is best. Yes. A best movable while in free agency. I think and it because it was one of those little perfect storm things coming because you have a Miami Dolphins team that was in the tank just quite tank mode. They wanna tank. Yeah. They they want to use that money that was on a going out for Quin twenty eleven point eight million. And they wanted to get to not have all that tied up. So they wanted to move him. They wanted to get a draft pick. And if someone was talking about in essence because they kind of you know, had some money sunk already that they'd paid out as a paraded bonus. They essentially use that to get them another, you know, light draft pick for next year. So it's like they caught Miami. Would they were ready to move on? And they caught Quinn coming off the year. Whereas production was down because he was in the wrong steep. Yes. Which that's happening him twice. Yeah. And so he wanted to to come out and he wanted a one year deal because he knew that he could get as much now as he would like to get. But if he comes to Dallas shows out has a good year, then he's got a shot at one more. Good pay. Yes. Yes. It was. And that is a very smart d I just think of is very smart. On their part the way that they handled that they weren't the stars aligned. Everything was exactly what they wanted. They get a very productive pass rusher. Who will be a great off a bookie end if they can get everything worked out with DeMarcus Lawrence, which I think they will in which I think you wanna talk about later. But here's the thing. Tom that I wanted to touch on Robert Quinn. It's not that. He's another defensive end. He is the prototypical right defensive end the skip rusher. The guy that you rod Marinelli prefers the three four Outside Linebackers as his right end. That's what he likes is that type of player but plug plug them in on the right side that has speed to counter all of the consistent abilities in the run game and pass rush that DeMarcus Lawrence has now you've got a guy screaming off the edge. And that's what he wanted. And you and I don't think the Cowboys were intimidated by not getting Robert Quinn for longer than a year. That's what good teams want. They wanna make you prove it with them. And this is kind of four so people have been saying this is what Belichick has been doing all along. He gets rentals flips of for compensatory picks the next year and moves on he's you know, he is doing his own kind of Barney shopping, so innocence, maybe the Cowboys are catching up and also this one year deal was part of an overall thing that I was talking about before we got online. They Cowboys can side whoever the heck they want next year. Yes, they have got. I was looking at because I've got an article that literally is proof reading as soon as we get done with this to submit in twenty twenty the Dallas Cowboys have projected at this point the most. Cap space in the National Football League. Dow hang onto your hats folks out there. They are projected if the cap is at two hundred million which is going to be somewhere in that vicinity. The Cowboys will have a hundred in sixteen million dollars in free cap space. Yeah. That's that's a lot of Skrela as they say on the street, and you can you know, you can get, you know, the second year of DeMarcus Lawrence deal, whatever you need for a debt Prescott deal. Whatever you need for an Amari Cooper deal. Whatever you need for Byron Jones deal. Whatever you need for Zeke Elliott deal with the little bit of proper structuring and making twenty twenty the first appearance of those you can do them all still have cap space dot be worried about what you're kicking down the road and just go barely on into the post CBA will there the goading negotiating a new deal? Just waiting. To see what is going to be like then. But there is nothing holding the Cowboys back right now and all these one year deals that they just signed are important. Yes. And I'm glad you brought that up because I'm writing an article on blogging the boys about in spirit of the March madness. Which you and I are too busy to catch a game. So, but I looked at the final four teams to make it in the playoffs each year in the NFL and what they were spending in free agency. And you look at it starting in two thousand fourteen the patriots are in every single one guy. So don't be surprised there. But you look at what they're spending the total spending could be up there. You could see like the patriots in two thousand fourteen spent sixty eight million dollars the colts spit one hundred four million dollars. But when you look at the total guaranteed, they are all under that you want to stay under that fifty percent and everyone look at the patriots thirty seven percent the Seahawks. Packers twenty. Twenty-five percent. The colts forty-two percent. Now. You look at what the Cowboys did this year they signed eight players and thirty eight thirty eight million dollars is what they spent but only forty one percent Tom in guarantees. So you're literally and the average Tom of link of years, guess what it is one year deals. Oh, yeah. And I was gonna say did that include all of their own that they resigned bring BRAC. Yeah. Because yeah there. Yes. So you're spending you're spending money, but you're not guaranteeing a lot of you're spending. Your it looks like you're spending money is what I should say you're in. But you're really not spending terrible amount of money, your your spending it judiciously exactly exactly like the cheats last year, or the only exception. They spent fifty five percent of their cap, but they needed to build their roster because they were getting a little long in the tooth on defense and stuff. And then the patriots 2017 they spent fifty three percent. On in guaranteed money. But that's because they also had a lot of moves to make so you, but you look at that. And you say man, the Cowboys you look at their last spending since two thousand fourteen Tom twenty fourteen they spent six percent and guarantees, but they but it says they spent forty million dollars. Okay. Twenty eight million and twenty two thousand fifteen only eight percent Fifty-two million in twenty sixteen. Thirty seven percent. Thirty seven percent. The next year twenty nine thousand nine they've spent thirty eight million dollars forty two percent. And the average length of the deal is one point four years. You're staying in that below two year average in that's the way to do it because you don't want to give long-term money to guys that you don't know are going to pan out. And you look at what the Cowboys did Tom sign. Cameron Fleming that was huge getting Christian Covington low key signing tape on Austin Randall Cobb those two putting them in the offense. We've already spoken about Kerry Haider's a guy you really like. Georgia loca, they went with a guy that can play games instead of sit on the sidelines being injured and then Robert Quinn. I mean, they done some pretty masterful things. Yeah. And you can't say anything really bad about it. I mean, how that's why I'm saying I put my foot back in my mouth. I was wrong Stephen Jones, if you read my column on so sorry, I should've never said that you didn't know what you were doing. Yeah. It is. They they really got it to all come together as it has has set the table up. Not just do they have the whole plug. But I don't think they've ever been in a situation like this where there's no particular position. You've got look at at pick fifty eight or if they wind up somewhere else he you just looking for what player can help this Ross for more than anybody else. Yeah. You wanna get short term rentals? You wanna make them? You wanna make them have great seasons? Hey, if they have a good year, and they get paid somewhere else. Who cares because you are going to get a cop pick out of that. They're probably going to get a nice pick out a Robert Quinn, if he has a decent year, and they always got the option of giddy the market themselves, although they tend not to do that once again because the price is going to be drone or they don't wanna pay. But you know, they just have all the action. Yes. Yes. And so what it reminds me of Tom right now. It's like what I'm thinking about is that how you know everyone has talked about this team needs to load up around the young quarterback load up around the young talent. And they were had mentioned yesterday. Like, it was some huge deal that the Cowboys haven't reached any negotiations or even reached out feelers to a more Cooper's camp or Dak Prescott. Can't they're letting some of this stuff play out guys. Even though people tell you there are deadlines here. There are no deadlines right now. Yeah. And that's the other thing is that. You know? Prescott camp in Cooper's camp know that they're trying to sort out the DeMarcus Lawrence deal and once they get his deal done that boob. You know, they're going to open up another ten million or so and cap space, and that what the they can then turn around and start looking at the extensions on Prescott Cooper is one of those rolling deals. They just keep you know, signing rolling. So that the cap hit for right now is is lowered or kept in a minimum. Embattled let's just keep on signing stuff. I mean, it's conceivable with with both Prescott in or that when they get deals done the cap hit is going to be the same. Roughly as what it is right now with all the increased costs pushed into the future. Yes. And you know, I really like everyone says that cap hell is a myth. It's kinda half. True. I mean, you can get yourself into some cap situations. If you pay a lot of guys these long-term guarantees that are going to be, you know, get you in some trouble later on down the road. But the Cowboys are trying to avoid stuff like that. They're trying to pay a lot of the guarantees up front. Get the best part of these guys contracts right now, which is going to lead us to talk about DeMarcus Lawrence. But before we do I want to take a quick break. We'll be right back on the rooms. And the boys podcast. We are back. So before we went to break, we're going to talk about DeMarcus Lawrence. I I just mentioned that the Cowboys got Robert Quinn for a twenty twenty six round pick. No conditional picks. No any like that. They just gave them nothing got him for peanuts and bag of potato chips. You know, like, yeah. And he is a good player. This is a guy that is a former all pro this is the guy that's a former pro bowler. I know it's been a while. But he had a scheme change in with the Rams that sent him packing. And then he has a scheme change with the dolphins that sent him looking for a four three team again. So the Cowboys are hoping that he is going to be a much more consistent presence on that right side. And this is not this is about replacing Randy, Gregory. Yes. In the short term. But this is also about keeping Tyrone Crawford from having all that pressure of being a write in when he's really not that fit. And it's everywhere. One of the Cowboys signings including Quinn trae. But all the free agents on ings looked to be excellent value for the cost. Yes. And they came out Steven Jones came out, Tom. And that's why I wanted to get to here because Steven Jones actually wanted to reiterate the fact that getting Robert Quinn puts more like puts more motivation in their cats to get it done with DeMarcus Lawrence, and he didn't mention that the last time when they were talking about Alan Hearns. He never, you know, mum was the word Dez Bryant until it happened. But he it clear that he wants to get the deal done with DeMarcus Lawrence that this is an addition to not a guy that they look at trying to replace DeMarcus Lawrence because I think that's what everyone is fearful of. Yeah. I don't that's not the way that's not what the team is showing in. It's it's it's cards that that's you know, they aren't even bluffing about it. They they have made no talk about moving on. Lawrence. And I don't I think that their plan is to have him for, you know, three years because almost all NFL contracts when you come down to it nowadays there are three year deal. There's no nothing really tying player might say six five six years. But it's really you. You have an out at their like, that's just that's just all, you know, flash. And yeah, just to to look good, which is you know, that I've really wished that the NFL would get into having just let's have a guaranteed contract in which to go bike them all for about three years. You know, one two or three years skip all this long stuff. But yeah, because you look at the safety position in how like everyone says, oh, well, the Seika is our back. The Sates are getting paid not really folks like three hundred million dollars. Yeah. The NFL spent three hundred million dollars this year on safety's all but eight million to nine guys. Yeah. It's not it's not a huge. It was still a slow safety and how much of that was guaranteed. No not much at all. Yeah. Like one hundred and seventy six million out of three hundred and something. Yeah. Not not very much. Yeah. And that's just that's the nature of thing. And that's kind of why the NFL PA is probably going to be looking for blood as far as the salary cap comes. They're gonna figure. Yeah. Tom. What do you think about this DeMarcus Lawrence the rumors that were hearing everything that's going on with the situation about the shoulder surgery in how he, you know, Brian brought us said this week that he thinks that every day that he waits to get that shoulder surgery. It's not actually helping him in the negotiation that it's not very much leveraged for DeMarcus Lawrence to try to create even though I would, you know, applaud him for trying to create some leverage there. It's just it's important to have that first year on that deal. Yeah. And like you were like we were talking about earlier. You have to wonder how much of this is a reflection of the report that the agent Kanter just does not trust the Jones family, and there's some kind of bad blood there, which I'm not familiar with the history on. But apparently, they don't get along. Very well. Well, he's represented a lot of Cowboys in the past. Yeah. And you know, maybe he just doesn't like the fact that they tend to stick by their guns. Blazing lar- ball. I I don't know. But is he living is that influencing what he's doing is? He doing the right thing for his client, or as, you know, letting his own ego get into which I don't know. But overall, I just I feel like this is going to get done. And I think it may be exceleron a little bit as the Cowboys get all these other uncertainties cleared up that's going to allow them to focus a little bit more on. How do we get this done and sit back, you know? And I think they could I think they're going to. Mental. Okay. We'll be this price Boyd. They wanna stick to their guns on doing a five year versus a six year deal, which is is like if if it's five or six years, and I'm the agent. There's no way I'll let that be a sticky point because of that whole three year deal, it's really only rear contract anyway, who cares about whether it says five or six, you know, the changes wants to have a little more flexibility when that time comes, and, you know, they're making the bet that the he's not really gonna have six productive years in the NFL, which is smart money. You know as much as we hate to admit it these guys don't last that long. They have a narrow window when they can play. So yeah, I think that going to work something out and get the money done free up some of that twenty million dollar cap hit that he's got and move onto the next important deal. Like, I said I would like. It, you know, if you get what ball, I think that they're kind of goal is to see have, you know, something in place on Lawrence. Then something worked out with Prescott. Then get something worked out fairly soon with Cooper. I don't know if the restrictions are whether they have to get that done before camp started to where they stay from what I'm hearing the whispers, he's a happy camper. He's fine. Where he's at right now knows that they're they're working on they're going to work on that. And but I wanted to mention about the Lawrence thing is that the reason I don't believe that everything that's coming out is that you see these things happen with negotiations. All the to the. Oh, yeah. Agent is going to try to put pressure on the club by saying that they're disrespecting his his client, the then they're going to put out that the client feels disrespected and that the the next thing is that the Cowboys are low balling and somebody had mentioned, and I don't care who that the Cowboys had only offered him seventeen million a year. You know, why? I know that's bogus because they are. Franchise tag him for twenty. So if they franchise tag him for twenty you're not going to start the conversation under twenty. Yeah. That is just not smart. If you starting that conversation under twenty if you're really doing that. Then that means you don't really want to sign him. You know, you you buy the talk about seventeen million last year. Yeah. When he was seventeen million cap hit. But yeah, I don't I don't know. Like, you said that's part of the whole fog of this thing is that we don't really know yet. You know, we get reports we get sources, you know, we get leaks from the team. We get leaks from the agent, and yeah, I don't know. It's just it's all we're in the it's really with the most important positions in football quarterback pass rushers up there left tackle, they all those are positions that are based off the next guy type stuff now positions are like that running backs. Not like that. It's either you're good get paid. If you're not you get you kind of fall in line same thing with safety, but with defensive ins, they wanna get he wants to get paid like Khalil Mack. He has you know, he has every right to feel that he's near that level. I think they're hell boys. Have every right to feel that he's not. But they've got. Yeah. That's where you got to work out. How close we wanna come on this where they wanna give. And. Yeah, I I don't I don't know. If you you'll give it Khalil Mack that you have to look at the fact that is subways. You know, DeMarcus may not be quite there is a pass rusher. But is he a more complete in some ways is definitely he's a he's the best run defending deep air in the NFL. So it's like you've got two guys that should be considered on the same tier? And that's kind of where I think the Cowboys are going to have to come to. And you know, you've talked about deadlines, I think the important thing is what's the internal deadline. They feel for when they wanna get a Lawrence into surgery and have him on the recovery track. Get him on the field. I I would say it's before July fifteenth. Well, yeah. That's what I've that's what I think we need to know is what is Stephen Jones. Does he have a landmark date? He wants to get this done by which of course, he's gonna keep that card right up against the vest. And that that is something that I would believe is kind of a snack there, Tom because I don't know if it was like I said before I applaud his agent and Lawrence for trying to come up with leverage in a game. Where players don't get much leverage at all in under the CBA. But I don't know the longer you wait if that leverage is really exists anymore. It becomes more of a problem. Because like I said the Cowboys are going to give you the best deal that you're gonna get at all like, that's it. You're not going to get more from another team. It's not gonna. Yeah. And the other thing that people need to to stop. Remember, this is business. Yes. This is negotiation. If if you have a General Motors the Goshi hitting with a tire company to try to get a better deal for the tire that they put on say eighty percent of the certain model of car. Nobody says anything of this sticky a drug out, and they're just going back and forth over the last few dollars. That's just how it's done. But here because it's the NFL because we're invested in the re the outcome of these teams because this is all being done very publicly because the figures to boast of us same astronomical, the everybody is like oh my gosh. But that's just how it's done yet. You could see animosity and like you can say oh man there. You know, DeMarcus Lawrence is pretty upset with the Cowboys. Everybody's upset until the ink dries on the check. People. Yeah. And you know, you wanna see animosity look at some of the union ago, she Asians that have gone up with Eva the automobile industry in the steel industry and stuff like that yet. They get these done. Everything gets started back up again, and it goes on like normal. You know, it's just don't get too wrapped around the fact about the fact that this is kind of got little hard nose to the negotiating table. That's just how it's done. It's not going to have any real impact on what Lawrence does when he finally gets on the field. He's just going to go out there and play the game, and is very rare usually a player suddenly quit playing. Well, because he got paid that kinda doesn't happen. What usually happens is players get paid at the wrong time where they're just about to start sliding over that cliff. Exactly they get paid a little late because teams want to the app them for as cheap as they can for as long as they can. And I understand that. I. This is all a business here. And I that's why I'm not ready to panic with DeMarcus Lawrence stuff because I don't know how much of it is true. And how much of it is trying to fabricate a situation to where people will start making concessions. That's usually what happens in negotiation if concessions are made. But that's all the time.

We both of us serve result of the allergies. Booming and everything. Yeah. Headed two minutes, weaken, an awesome. Yeah. You saw the pitch my wife, and I had a chance to go down and visit my son and spend some time in Austin that actually able to watch the Dell matchplay what a tremendous weekend. We'll watch that. But I wasn't prepared for the elements was damn ride cold. And I'm top of that fighting the allergies and everything. But yeah, I mean, you have to take a picture. That's one of those must pitchers you gotta take into bluebonnets. Of course. It did get fries chili in the air. In the area over the weekend. I haven't done my cousin's daughter's birthday party, and we were outside pitching washers. And all of a sudden it just freezing. We had a long Sunday with this entering commanders. Get the racks you mentioned you at the Dell matching play and I wanted to wait until you were reporting to send you a test so p behind the curtain of sending to you right now. And there are some cleats that Jordan is going to release next Monday the Monday of masters week, and I wanted to full authentic reaction while on the five guys. I I think that they're bad. I love. Two hundred and twenty dollars. You know, I may spin spin out on gosh. Those are cool. They're sick outta debt. Those are sick. So cool. We are getting close. I'm sure we'll we'll dabble in masters talk next to convey excited about that. What you enjoy about the match play Austin? I've never been awesome country. His so amazed at the topography and then in Austin hill country, and you know, reminds me a lot of California have all the houses nestled in the hills, and it's right there on lake Austin. And I was just amazed of the relation elevation of the grains. And the course, and I like the course because all the holes are parallel to each other. And you can go from, you know, watch several holes from like a different teebox. Yeah. I mean, it has a lot of character. First time I've actually been in that part of Austin. I mean, I've been out the West Lake area, but golf courses. Unbelievable, it it's a great little spot west like shadow to drew Brees, obviously, Nick foles. And you know, I was actually talking to a family member about this at the birthday party. Do you know who drew Brees cousins when what's what it has to do with Austin country club and everything that was happening over the weekend? Not cut. Well, I know being critical, but they wouldn't be cousins. But I'm gonna I'm gonna go somewhere in the long horn family, maybe Mack Brown, and Ben Crenshaw whole you're not fan whole Trie. You're not wrong. What the long connection his cousin is Angela aci-, you might know her better as Angela Garcia the wife of Sergio Garcia. That's right. And you Tigray. Yeah. So she went to UT, I believe her grandfather either coached or played quarterback there something like that. But so so Zale Yas mom as alia Garcia is. Drew's little niece or second into the master's neck a couple of weeks. Totally. I don't think it was a good week it kind of remind me of Sergio Garcia. I think he was he was saying something in Spanish. And I don't think they were good words when I was growing up, the only Spanish, I knew was the bad words. All my my my dad, my mom talking in. But yeah, I think is ball was had a hard time finding a fairway seriously so badly confer for Sergio. How's your bracket looking after after the final four is officially set when you're not going to believe that I actually do it in third place in my in my in my group in ninety three percent actually have to teams in the final floor, which I had tech in Virginia rat on. So there you go North Carolina. They're out, but. I guess not into as bad as the other guys that they're in my bracket. So you've still got a shot to have the championship game to. I mean, you've got one on each side. So yeah, I do. Pretty blinked there for a while. And you know, give shout out to Texas Tech. Yeah. It's going to be a tremendous game against Michigan state. And then on the flip side of Auburn. Which is the never been in the final four, correct? Correct. And so it's going to be a tremendous vinyl floor, and I'm excited and stranger things can happen here. I am have a chance to win my bracket at one point it, look, really, really blade. Hey, that's that's the way March rolls. So Tony masters coming up. I'm very excited. Final four set. When you hear those things you typically think NFL news is kind of slow in slowing down around that time of year last week. We did have the owners meetings out in Arizona. An important little announcement of sorts at the end of the week. We heard from your former teammate, and friend Michael Irvin who had posted on Instagram that he was getting checked for potential throat cancer. He talked about how his father had had that indicted. I believe at the age of fifty one hour, which is incredible young announced on Sunday morning. Tony that the results are in. And that there is no cancer thing. God. So very very good news for the playmaker. What great news, and I'm like, you read the post, and I saw pictures of him and an and Troy they were together though, the weekend and just someone who has gone through with my wife, or is this came breast cancer survivor mean who hasn't been touched by cancer than any time. He has something suspicious with a doctor says, okay, we need to get a biopsy. Then you start thinking about the worst case scenario. So tremendous prayers for him. Just so glad that it was was income back as cancer. So all the prayers and everyone to sent out to Michael Irvin. I think they're all answered great. Great news for the playmaker. You mentioned the photo of the triplets over the weekend. We posted that on the BTV social channels. It was four people in the photo, the three of them and Mike Tyson. I mean, I'm sure you've seen the three of them take a lot of photos together. Have you ever seen them take on with Mike Tyson haven't I did not see that one in? There you go. That's a that's a great photo op anyone has a chance to take a picture with Mike Tyson. Arguably one of the greatest fighters besides Muhammed Ali. But this more known for hanging for hangover. I mean, that's a that's a selfie moment there. Yeah. I mean, I don't know. What's I think, I know? I think I know what our listeners would would prefer. But if you ask the average sports fan, would you rather have a photo with the triplets. Like, you could be the fourth person in that photo or a photo of Mike Tyson. I feel like non Cowboys fans would have a hard time decided, I don't know. Yeah. I think that you're probably your your allegiance, and you're crazy. And you remember the ninety s and how great the triplets were. But this Mike Tyson for what he represents and just the looseness and controversy and just how great fighter was. I know I guess I take it for granted played with those guys song have pitches with them. But I think Mike Tyson would be one of my would probably be a go-to selfie. I would I would like to make or being a fellow with right? Well, good for them. Then they got they got that picture with Mike all ears intact. So good for them. So it is April Fool's, Tony. And everybody is going for the low hanging fruit. But something that was not a trick last week the Cowboys right after we finished. It's like they said, okay. Arjun Tonio down what the seven five let's make a move. And you text me soon as it happened Robert Quinn acquired by the Dallas Cowboys for. A twenty twenty sixth round draft pick essentially a one year eight million dollar deal for twenty eight year old pass rusher who has never finished with less than four sex and a season led the NFL six years ago. It's pretty solid little little get up. They got. I was excited when I heard the news, and I think you, and I thought that it would be kind of imminent that maybe a deal would get done. And I think everyone else is hoping considering the situation with the defensive vans and to build add him with a I'm sure soon to be signed the Marcus Lawrence. You've gotta be excited because it's kinda hard to add statistics like that. If you can get a guy can get eight and a half sacks and upside be double digits. There's not too many guys out there in the Bill to get him at eight million dollars, and what they had to give up. I think it's a win win situation for both of them. It is something that just makes so much sense. And sometimes when you say something like that it makes sense for the Cowboys because they get a pass rusher for the dolphins because they're unloading things and obviously looking for the future. Sometimes you hear it just makes sense everybody. That's when things don't happen. So it is nice to see that get done and that. In a weird way. Gives me some a sense of calmness for the DeMarcus Lawrence at Jewish in. Because people were getting ANC, Tony. Why haven't they traded for Robert Quinn, y well because just things take time, you know, what I mean? And so I do feel like the democracy situation is taking time. But I haven't lost any faith that will get done. Eventually. No, I said this last week on our broadcast. I think it's going to get done before the draft. I mean, that's my gut feeling and I think now I think the Cowboys really wanna see these two together because if you look at the whole situation, the potential I think, you know, what the Cowboys where they are. Now. This is probably the best time they have they they have to make a run at it. You know, the seasoning the changes and the free agents they added with Randall Cobb and just some of the changes they've made that bring back Jason win. And so there's a lot of good things. Look good by going on. And you add someone really it's been in the league and hasn't had issues, and I. I think the biggest thing is you can trust RJ and someone like Robert Quinn. It didn't fit in the system obviously Miami. But I think that really there's got to be more of a sense of urgency on both parties DeMarcus Lawrence, but even more so for the Cowboys. Yeah. Their business, and they're not gonna overpay them DeMarcus Lawrence, but just to given the fact that these two guys together line up. I think it could really really Volve vaunt. They're really good defense. They had last year. I agree. It is hard to have a good defense, you know, in consecutive years. We've learned that. But there's only reason to believe that you know, the Cowboys are trending in that direction. Byron Jones wasn't nounce last week that he did get hip surgery. I mean, I'd never had hip surgery. But you know, you've had your your bumps and bruises. Tony's that's something to really be worried about or is it, you know. Hey, you got it done in March. That's plenty of time to get well get rested before I'm not really concerned about that. I mean, Byron Jones was the store and itself. And I think now you have so much. Time in the off season and get the get it done. And I think you'll be sound by the time we really really needs to be ready, and it's just a part of just making some precautionary things and not letting and linger. I think that's the thing with surgeries you gotta look at the the the big picture and along Javadi of it. So now, I'm not really concerned. It's probably what the Skopje surgery, which we know orthoscopic surgery. These days is not a big deal. So I'm not really concerned about you. You touched on Jason Witten a moment ago. Did you see that photo circulating across the internet over the we speaking of text messages. Yes, totally different. Look. So you know to to kind of put this whole thing in perspective Jason Whitten's first Monday night football game. He had a head of hair that we had not seen in a long time. It was a different shade. A lot of people at the time thought it was a pay. I thought it was like what is it Rogaine? That's I thought it was something like that. Like, I thought they were some supplements involved. But I thought it was Rogaine I've tried that before and I my hair is in progress. Like that I'm saying I'm saying is I thought like it was it was stimulated actual growth, though. I thought it was actually his hair or like like extensions or transplant or had. That's what I I didn't. I didn't think it was like a to pay looking at what we saw in the, you know. Hey, look, if the guy's comfortable, you know, and live in life good for him. I mean, you know, that's really all that matters. But. Yeah. We I'm not the one that. Critique someone about hair you look in my hair. But yeah, all of a sudden it kind of banished. We have never seen him like that. I know it it felt like back win. It is a long time ago. Now when Dirk I shaved his head. Remember when he went from having the long locks to just I mean, just completely shaved it was it was startling. And I don't know. I mean, a his obviously, I think, you know, surrendered to the fact that people are gonna mock him, and whatever in his return to football, and whatever he's going to have to put up with stuff for a little while a little bit of fallout and the internet just dumped all over him. Tony. I mean, it was it was it was like a flashing sign that said I wore to pay all of last season. Are not to laugh you got to embrace. And he's a good looking dude, regardless if he has air, no hair, but it didn't look natural. When you saw one excuse me. I really I'm not really aware of making. I'm not trying to make a joke about someone that may not have a full head of hair, and you have one your younger, but for someone that has hair envy. Even in my age to be able to see that. And be it almost looked like he tuck it off. Yeah. Like, whatever he was wearing on Monday night football decided I'm going to take it off. And I'm not not out public. You know, my last thing on this. And I'm not at all saying that I've, you know, I've got flowing locks of hair, my hair cut every other week is just a got a lot of you gotta ahead. But you know, he was he was like almost totally shaven like left some left like twenty percent on. I don't know. And there was nothing on top that like the. Like, the the had the hair on the temples and write the horse horseshoe. Look, right. So my thought is at that point just go bald. You know, what I mean just just just lean into it? Just go the whole way. I mean, don't don't go nine yards. I mean, just go the whole tin because if I think that would look better than your ride Jason wins good looking cat. No matter what. But I think that would look better than what he's currently got. And I don't know. I haven't won a football home it for work. I am probably be nicer if you don't have hair in the way, while know this. I know that helmet they used to say keep wearing a ball cap. And you keep wearing that helmet. Also that hair gets a little thinner, but here's my whole thing. And this will be my last comment that the joke about it for some reason as a first thing I thought about because he had all this hair on overnight. And to me it almost looked like a Comber. And I'm thinking, I wonder what he's going to look like when you take me. Now is that we're going to find out right? Whether that was natural or. And then we'd see the pitcher and then answer questions. Yeah. And I think that is something that everybody understands the guy was on television. Everybody understands that if you're going to be on television. You wanna look good? The good for good for Jason, man. Phil like him and Tony Romo his BFF. Have something in common that they both are the bulk of jokes, you know, with Rome, and you couldn't do anything. Right. When when he threw interception, all the social media, the reaction negatively now, you know, the whole deal with the broadcast, and they're now the hair and everything. Yeah. Seems like he's the bulk of all the jokes and everything. So I think maybe he knows what Tony Romo felt like when Tony Romo was playing. Oh, yeah. And that's you know, I thought that was partly why he wanted to get out. Because before he started win was not that that guy. You know, he was poised. I mean, you know, he was never wrong. You know what I'm saying? And he went from that Romo went the other day never being scrutinized Romo Romo Romo went the right direction. He went from. Nobody appreciates me to now. Everybody loves every single thing. I do with weight and went from Mr. perfect to just like this. You know? I just couldn't do anything. Right. Always left-footed. Whatever. But let's let's move on. Because goodness gracious would've photo. Anyway, you also talked about Randall Cobb. We ran a poll with Espy nations fan pulse. All Tony last week. And we asked people to vote on whether they thought Randall Cobb wasn't upgrade over Kobe's Lee at slot receiver because obviously the Cowboys have had some options there with Kobe's moving onto the Buffalo Bills and by options, I mean, they had to figure something out, but they brought him Randall Cobb five million dollar deal and about sixty eight percent of people almost sixty nine percent. Believe that Randall Cobb is an upgrade how do you feel about that? I agree as much as I like Koby's Lee in the story. And I think I said this couple of weeks ago when what three weeks ago whenever Kobe's Lee signed with the Buffalo Bills and Cowboys. Inked to Randall Cobb the one year deal. So people are going to forget about Kobe sleep because Randall Cobb has done it has history as a receiver National Football League thicky adds a little bit more to the slot. He can do a lot of different things. Maybe cold is into didn't do. He's bigger in his history of playing with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in having success in the playoffs. And I think that that really adds a lot too. You know, he's he's opposite can have to produce and want to see his relationship with someone like that Prescott. But I think that with everything that he's done. And if you watch him, and you know, he's a he's a consummate professional. I think that really I mean, you can't that's that's really not an argument. A very quick sidebar. While this again, we we like to tell you the truth here on how the sausage is made while we're talking Tony. Tom Brady joins Twitter. He's officially on Twitter and his first tweet appropriately on, April Fools. I'm retiring in my spare time I'll be tweeden. That's how he he joined the Twitter sphere. Tom Brady is pretty good. I mean, he's he's a huge brand. This is really calculated. He follow him on Instagram. And he's pretty I mean, I like his post, but yeah, I think that that's pretty cool on April Fools day. Yeah. Announce your Twitter account, and it's a silly joke, obviously. But but it's a good way to launch the account. And let's let's put an over under on today's obviously Monday April first by win. Are let's say at the end of this week by Friday at five pm, how many followers does he have? I'm going to say seven hundred thousand. I'm gonna I'm gonna go the over. I'll say a million isn't he it's a million. I think so. Okay. Yeah. I think Twitter, I think he grows expeditiously because it just Twitter and a lot of people on Instagram. I wouldn't say more people on Twitter than Instagram by far. So yeah, I'm gonna say a million. Okay. That's not. That's not a lot for for for the go. I mean, I don't know made a lot of those followers. Could be is his wife. That's true. She's got more. She's got more followers than he probably will. We'll have so. Yeah, I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go the over on that. At least a million. It is hard. I always find it amazing. Like when you look at like average NBA players in those guys will have over a million Twitter followers. And yet, you know, you look at NFL superstars, and they won't. So just kind of speaks to how popular sports are worldwide. But he may have that many today. I don't know buy this by that tweet right there. Sent out. Well, everybody's talking about it. It's going to be, you know, all the news outlets. Everyone has it used Twitter following and social media volunteer going to re re tweet that and it's just going to grow and grow is going to be like a fire. So he is in a manner of seconds. He jumped I'm not gonna lie not to brag or anything. But when I got there he was at forty nine followers. I was his fiftieth follower. No big deal. So I I was there before anybody. I got I got in before it was a bandwagon. Think maybe I need to go on on me. I can say it's it's probably jumped one hundred by now it's at a couple of thousand you get in. Get in right now. You're you're still cool kids back tell everyone you were the fiftieth. Follow Tom Brady when he first came on Twitter, dad. What was it like to be Tom Brady's fiftieth? I tell you what's on. It was a it was a great day. But anyway. Bhakta Randall Cobb and coldeze Louis, I do think that Randall in cobber different. I think they have different strings. I think coal is quicker. You know to begin his route than Randall. But I think that Randall is better after the catch. I think Randall is better at stretching the field vertically. And I think that now at the point the Cowboys are at offensively were Dak Prescott is I think he needs Randall Cobb more than he needs. Call Beasley which inherently makes the value that Randall brings more which makes him better. With specific regard to the Dallas Cowboys. I think Randall Cobb is probably a better route runner. I think this because he's a bigger statue. I think that's a plus for probably someone like that. And I think I think you brought up a good point yards after catch. We know as that is such an intangible thing to have as a wide receiver. And I think he has a capability breaking it anywhere on the Phil. And. Versatility. Which you knew you can use them some runner. And the physicality I think is a big difference for me. And I think he's multifaceted. When he's able to, you know, run different routes and thinking at a lot more to this this offense, and he can sometimes while Mark coop. Was the number one receiver now yet Randall Cobb, and I think he can do different nuances of this offense when it comes to run different routes. So let's play this game are on the subject of you mentioned, you take the over on Tom Brady's Twitter followers. He's not. He's not at a million yet. So I know you're disappointed. But I said by this. Let's play over not really over. But just kind of compare the two who has more receptions in two thousand nine hundred Randall Cobb, the cowboy or call Beasley the Bill rental. Call saddened Cole has more receptions, personally, because I think he's going to get a lot of dump off and just kind of. And you look at their number one the receiver and you look at their quarterback and their type of offense. Yeah. I could probably I could probably go there. But I think we'll be surprised how much Randall Cobb may or may not touch the ball. I think more may because just what he can do. And maybe maybe more of a maybe Borba crutch for a Dak Prescott. And you know, I don't know how many snaps Jason wins going to get. But yeah, I could say that. I think they'd isolate a little bit more in buffalo. Yeah. Basically, I I can see that. That's the only thing I would call Beasley. I think he finishes more receptions, but I think Randall finishes and more yards and more touchdowns and buy more time sounds I think he has like four and Cole has like three, and yeah, I don't think either one of them close. Yeah. But so that's an interesting game. Our last thing on today's episode Tony speaking of over unders, and what have you and whatnot? An interesting. List was published with regard to all thirty two NFL teams CG technology released their NFL over unders as far as win totals. So the highest projected team the most wins are projected for the New England Patriots and Tom Brady and his band Twitter account with eleven so cool. The Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams in New Orleans Saints all projected at ten and a half wins. So that is also interesting the loss Angeles chargers are the lone team to be set at ten wins, even but after that when it gets a little contentious. And that's where some things are interesting on the NFC side of the NFL the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears both set at nine and a half. When it comes to projected wins. When it comes to the eagles nine and a half, you taken the over or the under in two thousand eighteen that's kind of on that threshold. And I think you look at nine wins isn't that like the third and? In the National Football League. I mean, not everyone's I think we'd kinda get seduced by the ten and eleven maybe twelve wins and asked what this happen that much. Right. So with those two teams, I think yeah. I think he can realistically say the older nine and a half. Now, I think you get look at NFC's. Really the competitive teams in that division. I could I would say the over on that. I think eagles had the capability, and I think it all comes down to health. And you know, how the things that evolve. I mean when you look at Carson Wentz, but I will say I will say over on the nine and a half for those two teams Chicago is going to be really good. Sure. Chicago's interesting, certainly. But I don't know. I mean, the eagles nine and a half is tough. I think that's fair. But the Cowboys have been set at eight and a half. So they've got a lower over under them the eagles number one. Did you think that's fair for the eagles to be a head of the Cowboys? Number two. Would you take the over or the under on eight and a half for the Dallas Cowboys? The Cowboys got their last year. That was just amazing how they were. They had five five in wins in a row. Was it goes Arctic for guy? That's eight wins in a row mean they were three three and five. And then it was eight wins in a row now. That is okay wins in a row. It was a lot of wins. But now if you look at it are they going to go that way his next year. I don't know. But I think they get a look at that. And it's always fun and interesting how they handicap these different teams. But. I would stink the Cowboys would be much better this year, if they figure out the problems on offense and seems to me they have, you know, a lot of really good things come back. I mean, they get healthy guys. You get their bet all pro center they had another piece again in their offense. I'm gonna go the elder on. I think the Cowboys will at least have nine wins next year. So first of all my mind is broken on this April Fool's day. You arrived. It was five wins in a row. I don't know. Why thought it was eight wins. I say I've been taking a lot of cold medicine. But I didn't know that eight wins. I'm gonna blame Monday because I didn't I thought about because there were three and five. There was no way that could have had eight because they finish. It was five five four whatever it is still the situation. They are in the second half of this know how? I don't know how you and I could forget specifically or me rather. Because it was that five game gauntlet. We literally defined that fun game gone that and it was those five games. I think eight and a half. I would take the over if it was nine and a half. I would have a lot more trepidation about it. Because I think there are nine to ten win team. That's why nine and a half would be so tough. And I was thinking about this over the weekend. So the Cowboys, and this is really fascinating. Because the New York Giants in Washington Redskins have both had their over under at six. So you've got to crappy teams that's four games right there. Let's say you went three of them. Right. You know, it's hard to sweep both of them that say you win three of those. Right. Let's say you split this series with the eagles. There's four wins right there. Just from your division. You get to play the AFC east in two thousand nineteen the patriots. Okay. Whatever you're gonna lose that game. But outside of that that's three wins. Right. So right there you're sitting on seven wins easy. You play in the NFC north this season. The Detroit Lions scare you Tony now. I mean, you're. In the Minnesota Vikings cool. I mean, Kirk cousins, I mean, I think nine wins is a floor of sorts if they had if they had below eight wins, I feel like it would be a categorical failure. While I think they can get four wins in the first half and four in the back half. And I think even more than that. And again look at their schedule. I think it's a little bit more friendlier next year than it was last year. But look what they did again had five wins. When we thought that we already had him buried with no chance to you know, to make the playoffs, and they proved everyone wrong. So I'm just going to I think that's you made up a good point about the the difficulty of the NFC east the giants. I mean, we've right now we know that done. Yeah. Yeah. So we're not gonna count them in the Mexican and the Redskins. I don't know about the Redskins considering the things that have happened to them. And you know, they're kind of this bipolar type team and up and down. And so I think you have to look at it that way, you gotta look the factor in what the strength of the division. I think next year the Cowboys and eagles the two teams that that will go will battle will battle out for the NFC title. I think so I mean, you're in a division. If you're the Cowboys, you should think in count your lucky stars because you have four games against ally. Manning in case keenum, you know, I mean, if you can't ride that wave in a positive direction. I mean, you know, that's so wild to thank we're case. Keenum was bent over the last three years studiously and goes to Minnesota, and then he chose to. It goes to Denver and Indianapolis back in Washington. Crazy. Oh, I mean that dude. I remember I think it was the twenty thirteen season when he was still on the Texans, and they had that amazing first half of that Sunday night game against the colts. And that was unfortunately that was the night that Gary kubiak fell and had to be taken out of the game. And then the cult's just came back and rectum in the second half. And won that game. And Everson said you're right. I mean, he went to went to the Rams, you know, he was on that. I mean is there a team? He hasn't been on the National Football League the Cowboys. So excuse me, so good for case. So we'll see what happens against him. Tony you, and I will be back later this week, obviously for another edition of the seven five. Oh, good luck with the allergies. You taking like six seven different medications. Yeah, I've been taking I'm actually better Friday was really really bad and Saturday was was even worse and. Actually, I'm much better. Paula Josh hitting the cough button on my microphone don't worry about it and bundle up. But some socks on a hoodie. Get some good a bowl of chili will Dr oranges orders will. So thanks for listening. Everybody will be back later this week. This was the seven five oh.

I promise you look life has been really really really busy. If you listen to Ocho alive or follow me on social media things have been really crazy. But we're back this week. We get back. To normal Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday on our off-season schedule. If you prefer the schedule, by the way, we're we're sort of fielding response and feedback if you prefer this schedule in the regular season, let us know so that we can take that into account. Obviously a lot of time to go between now. And then the weekend was really busy. I do some work for ESPN San Antonio. And I had a San Antonio commanders game. And it was an awesome game. And while that was going on the Dallas Cowboys came to terms with George I locate the newest member of Christmas charts secondary is indeed the former Minnesota Viking and Cincinnati Bengal. I like this move. I know that a lot of people wanna see a really sexy move like Eric berry or certainly Earl Thomas, but the Georgia move is. Is the Cowboys. I mean, this is how they roll they wanna find guys that they liked that they trust that are conservative and by conservative. I mean that you can count on and rely on from an injury perspective. And that are not going to be unavailable for any reason one way or another hour you've seen the Cowboys take a handful of chances when it comes to different players, obviously. Greg hardy comes to mind, obviously, Randy Gregory comes to mind, and in a very very different way. Nobody freak out. Jalen Smith comes to mind, all of those were gambles to some effect. And obviously some have really worked some didn't work at all. And some are struggling so I'd like this move. And you look at what the Cowboys have done now in free agency. They have George I look they have Randall Cobb. They have Christian Covington, they have Kerry Hyder. They're doing a great job that they're doing a great job of one specific thing. And that is of protecting themselves entering the NFL draft. Which again, we're talking on Monday, March twenty fifth the NFL draft is one month from today. The Cowboys are not in a situation where they have to have this position at the fiftieth overall pick. So that's really good that honestly is a really good and sound job by them. I know that a lot of people don't like to give them credit. I know that I'm in that group sometimes, and there are a lot of things they do that are perplexing. But this is not one of them. This makes sense George loca has played seventy six out of eighty games over the last five seasons. He was not used that much Minnesota in two thousand eighteen obviously. But he's still an option that allows the Cowboys to not have to trust Jeff heath and believe me Jeff heath is the goat. But if you don't have to trust him safety. I think they're doing all right for yourself. Which is probably what the cows are going for Jeff youth. Now, it can be relegated to more of a special teams player. If you listened to the latest. Episode of the five, oh, you know that Tony and I talked about that. Other news because there were a couple of other things to pop up on the docket on Monday afternoon. First of all I was reported by Armando Sagir, oh who covers the Miami. Dolphins. Does a great job on Twitter at our mandis ago. Had a tweet on Monday. They'd said Chris Greier who by the way is the general manager of the Miami Dolphins Chris guard says he hasn't spoken to New Orleans about Robert Quinn in a weaker show. But they have permission to speak to the player adds other teams have shown interest of late and even says if the dolphins have to keep him they will now this is just our Joa talking. I have not been told this money, buddy. This is just my opinion. I'm speaking from my gut. This sounds like man were not getting a lot of interests beyond the Cowboys. We need to drive up this cost, etc. Etc. Etc. We heard rumors that Robert Quinn was set to visit the New Orleans Saints after he visited the Dallas Cowboys last week. And then there was some great invest. Gate of work done the power of social media, which if you know me, you know, I'm a big fan of I know fish was all over that the great Mike Fisher from one of five three the fan. And it looked like that was a little bit of a bluff and bluffs. Probably. A harsh word bluff is not the right word. But it looked like that was a little bit of a distraction. I guess is the best way to put it. So right now the dolphin saying. Yeah. I mean, you know, if we gotta keep him we we'll keep him. Don't worry. I mean, I know we're talking about trading them. But we'll keep him. Do not worry that is an option for us that to me sounds like dude you're running out of time. You're trying to figure something out because you know, that things aren't necessarily going in the direction that you would like so that's kind of good news. But the bad news. I guess is that it seems like we're going to be waiting a while. It seems like this is a waiting game. It's a matter of prices coming down. It'd be coming up negotiations. Talks, you know, all that sort of mumbo jumbo and honestly, what's the rush on March twenty-fifth? What's the rush? Other than our peace of mind the Cowboys and the dolphins and Robert Quinn have all the time in the world. Did you get this done? So it does seem like we could be in for a long ride. I hope he brought snacks I've been into by the way these new Cheetos that I found I've never seen them sold at a grocery store. And I I know that I'm going off on an extreme tangent. But this is actually a really big problem in my personal life. I really like these new Chitose they're like baked, and they're really really cool, and they're really cheesy, but they only sell them gas stations. And so I would love to go to HEB or whatever and buy a big bag of them. So that I could you know, make my life a little bit easier. But no, they only sell them in gas stations and little personal bags, and that's really frustrating. But either way to to get back to the point. You know, it seems like we're going to be here for a while. So if you brought a snack, hopefully, you found those she does at some cool. Another piece of interesting information that came out on Monday from Clarence hill to Fort Worth star telegram, drew Rosenhaus, excuse me, not Jerusalem house, but Robert Quinn. Goodness gracious. If I can get over my tongue. It was reported. There we go. It was reported by Clarence hill of the Fort Worth star telegram that the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to ask Alan Hearns to take a pay cut. It is drew Rosenhaus who noted that the Cowboys have not approached him about a reduction in salary. This is Clarence is tweet on Twitter at Clarence hill junior. But purse source, according to chill, it's only a matter of time and the Cowboys are planning on asking him to take a pay cut a lot of these conversations happening because NFL owners meetings are happening right now in Phoenix, lots of owners and agents, etc. Having discussions together with one another. Putting out information. The gallon. Hearns has a base salary of four million dollars. I believe in two thousand nineteen and a cabinet of six point two five million dollars. So look I mean, Alan Hearns is the what most important receive around the Cowboys. I'll give you a second. While you think about that. They think about a he is the what most important received around the Cowboys because you put Amari Cooper over him. Obviously you put Michael Gallup over him. You put Randall Cobb over him. Do you put Taylor on Austin over him? And that kind of goes, you the way and certainly depends on Ellen hundreds health. But at the absolute best the point is that Alan Hearns is your fourth best wide receiver. If you're the Dallas Cowboys, so hopefully that all works, obviously, you know, it's never fun or easy to ask somebody to give up money. But we'll see if the Cowboys have the same luck with Allen Hearns that they did with Sean Lee something else that Clarence hill reported this is where I stepped over myself. Hey Ocho live where we call us betas bay. We'll tell you how things going Clarence hill. Also tweeted that drew Rosenhaus says the Cowboys are guard Connor Williams second round draft pick last season has gained ten pounds of muscle. Many people said many people noted a year ago when the Cowboys drafted Connor Williams. And then he struggled a little bit at left guard that his body was not NFL ready, and that was not easy. But it wasn't difficult to see if you watched Connor play obviously didn't play the entire season. I think people grew frustrated with his level of play ethnic people are still optimistic that he could be something special sterling in his second season. You look at he's definitely the weakest link on that offensive line right now. The good news is that he's still good. I mean, he's not great at this point, certainly. But if he's your weakest link, I think you're doing all right for yourself. And hopefully Connor is continuing to bulk up and continuing to get strong because the Cowboys are going to need that two more pieces of information that we have to get to today on Monday. And by the way, I don't know if I said this. I hope you're having a fantastic. I'm having a great day. It's nice and sunny San Antonio. It does feel like spring is finally here I took long enough to get here. It feels like this winter was longer and colder and wetter and muddier and just overall more gross than previous winters, but the NFL did announce had been previously speculated before the opening game of the two thousand nine hundred f l season, which traditionally is the reigning super. Bowl champion hosting a new team or a team on their schedule. Obviously we've seen that in. It's been a great tradition in the NFL. They get to raise their banner and whatnot. That will not be the case in two thousand nine hundred and in order to celebrate NFL one hundred which is a campaign to the NFL is really pushing. We all saw during the last Super Bowl with the NFL one hundred commercial that everybody loved in order to celebrate that the Green Bay Packers will visit the Chicago Bears on Thursday night to begin week one. I'm sure that Philadelphia Eagles supporters will be irate that a team gets to play a home game on a Thursday because that's how they roll these days. But anyway, this means that the New England Patriots will play their homecoming game their banner raising game. I without rob gronkowski, by the way, who will get you in a second. They will play that on Sunday night. So both games will be on NBC Thursday night and Sunday night. And it will be awesome. It'll be fun. It'll be great. We'll be enjoying football. Season at that point will be so ready for it. It's kind of sad that it's still six months away. And I know that right now. And I said that you'd probably thought your mind six months, there's no way that's possible. Yeah. It's it's like five months and three weeks or five months in two weeks. And then it's gonna take a long time. But thankfully, the masters is almost here stuff like that. We'll get through it. But either way the patriots will be hosting Lee Sunday night opener and a lot of people have thought that because the Cowboys do visit New England in two thousand nineteen that could be the game. The ratings will be huge all my gosh. Cow was patriots mix so much? Let's all bet on this. Look again, this is just RJ talking. I do not see how that makes sense personally because the Dallas Cowboys visiting the New England Patriots for what is probably the last time in the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick era. But if anybody's going into defy that it's only going to be them. But you know, what I mean the Cowboys visiting the patriots is nirvana for television ratings. I mean, you you cannot replicate what that game will yield. It will be the first time, by the way the. Doc Prescott in Zeke Elliot will take on Tom Brady. And again, probably the last one. But why would you waste that in week one? I've never understood this logic every year when the season schedule is being put together everybody always suggests this incredible game for week one and put them there, etc. Whatever that makes no sense to me because Cowboys patriots. I mean is is your your creme de LA creme and in week one everybody is so football-starved that they're going to watch no matter what you put in front of them. I mean, they're gonna watch anything you could put patriots titans there. And it would it would demolish ratings. That's the way week one works, and I mean, no disrespect to the Tennessee titans. But. I mean, it just makes so much sense to save Cowboys pages if I had to bet all right, and we'll hear the NFL schedule in its entirety. I would guess in about three weeks in about a month. If I had to bet Dallas visiting New England will be a late October early November game because you're looking at television sweep season. That's when that game will come late October early November the last time the Cowboys played the patriots to obviously was that identity state in those in two thousand fifteen and that was Brandon Weeden the last start that he made good times, by the way that game was in early October. They will not waste that and the same logic. Although not to the same degree for me. Applies at the Cleveland Browns. Everybody wants to see the patriots host two Browns in the opener on Sunday night with Baker and Odell Beckham junior and all that why waste that especially. Because a lot of people believe that the Browns will be a playoff team this season. Right. And so if you believe the Browns are going to be at the very least in contention for AFC wildcard, don't you want games that have playoff? Implications games between teams that are going to be there at the end. Don't you want those happening in November and December when a loss or a win swing the pendulum so much more? You don't want that thing in September. When everybody forgets about it. That is nobody wants to see that. Nobody that's just not the way things work think about just to kind of put it in perspective from this past season. Then go about how long ago when the Cowboys. You know, let's say what's a good example here when the Cowboys took on the. I don't know when when the Cowboys played the eagles at home that that game them into overtime. Okay. Remember that awesome game. The tip ball in Amari Cooper and whatnot. Think about at that moment. How long it felt like it had been since the eagles hosted the falcons in the season opener. It had been for ever. And nobody remembered that game that game meant nothing at that point in time. You want those juicy games at the end of the season the middle of the season, etc. You don't want them at the beginning. So that's just my two cents on that subject. Final thing. I mentioned rob gronkowski. He did retire on Sunday announce it on Instagram and. Good for him using social media. I'm big fan of that. And I was in the conversation all day long on Monday about the state of the greatest tight end of all time the goat when it comes to tight ends in the NFL, and Tony and I did get into this on the same five. Oh, but for perspective or putting it here on out your life. The greatest tight end of all time in our Joe is opinion, rob gronkowski, rob Grahn Caskey. And look if you want to say that Tony Gonzalez Togo one of the more. Underrated nicknames is the goat. I don't have a problem with that. I disagree with you. But I don't like vehemently disagree with you. I can understand your logic can totally put myself in those shoes and see what you see and understand that you believe that. And that makes some sense I can swallow that in no way in my mind is Jason Witten better than rob gronkowski. And this has offended a lot of Cowboys fans, and I get it. Look, it would be awesome. If the greatest quarterback of all time was a cowboy and the greatest running back of all time was a cow in the greatest had end of all time was a cowboy. In the greatest coach of all time was a cowboy Dow would be really cool. Right. That would be awesome. Because we're all Cowboys supporters Cowboys fans, we all want the cow was to be the best in no way is Jason Witten better than rob gronkowski. And I shouldn't say that in one way in terms of longevity in terms of abilities to survive the game of football, and Tony mitigate point on seven five oh to some degree. There. Win was not used away way, rob gronkowski wise. So you can make an argument that if you had been father had been used differently, maybe things shake differently, whatever the pointer mates, and I tweeted this data, and I got a lot of flack for it. Rob gronkowski has eleven more touchdowns than Jason win. Okay. Here's eleven more touchdowns. Jason Witten has played fifteen seasons in the NFL rob gronkowski played nine. Think about that. For a second think he has eleven more than him in six less seasons. That touchdowns are not everything touchdowns or not the most important statistic. They're not the only statistic, etc. But that is a very. Very very loud stat. The also think about this Jason win fifteen season of the NFL coming back from number sixteen. We're all excited about it. He has been named a first team all pro twice twice in fifteen seasons. Do you know how many times rob gronkowski has been named a first team all pro four times in nine seasons? That's unbelievable. And there's a lot of team success to associate rob gronkowski has Super Bowl rings. And obviously some wooden dozen and whatever the factor Maine's that rob gronkowski can do everything that Jason Witten. Could do you can block he can control the middle of the field. You can do all those things. Jayson win cannot do all of the things that rob gronkowski can do. That's just sit. We've never seen anything like wrong. Maybe Tony Kahn's is was that to some degree. But we've never seen anything like gronk, which is why in my humble opinion. He's the go. But you can tell me how wrong I am. Extremely an Email RJ data show at SP nation dot com. You can tweet at me at our Joa or you can just scream it wherever you are if you're working out, and if you are working out good.

What OPA welcome to episode of the Ocho Presentative Partnership as always? Spf nations blogging. The Boys Dot Com are Joe. Show of course from BBC and from radio as you're humble host on the OCHO it is Thursday march nineteenth. Two Thousand Twenty and we are here with a very special bonus episode of the Ocho. That's right earlier. This week with free agency. Going on a particular name was connected to the Dallas cowboys. You know what I'm talking about. That's right pass. Rusher JE DEBBIE. Yon clowney cowboys. Fan started to wonder. Is this possible because this really happened? Clowney playing opposite demarcus Lawrence. It is an interesting idea to consider to say the least. This idea was first actually floated out by none other than Joe Thomas. Former CLEVELAND BROWNS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN. Now obviously works. Nfl Network and so you know what we thought we thought. Let's figure our jobs thinking all right. What what what exactly went into the start from Joe because a lot of cowboys fans had some plots had some discussions had some ideas so we you know we were able to reach out to Joe. He was kind enough to join us and he talked about why this I mean look. I'll be honest when I first heard. Joe Say this I kind of you know. There's no real possibility of this happening but here in Joe explain it I I mean again. I'm not saying that I believe this is happening. But there is definitely more logic to it than you think. Joe also by the way is the CO host of the Tomahawk. Show podcast that covers the Cleveland browns kind of as a whole but also touches on the NFL. It's really great. He co-hosted with Andrew Hawkins. Who if you remember if you watched the reality show that Jesse Hollywood with Michael Irvin fourth and Long Andrew Hawkins finished second ultimately played for the Cleveland? Browns also obviously originally played for the Cincinnati bengals and whatnot but It's a great podcast. It's in my rotation and so Yeah Joe was kind enough to join US. So let's quit wasting talents. Go ahead and get to it here. He is though one the only from the Tomahawk show and NFL network. Joe Thomas Joins US next right here on talk pleased to be joined now by a very special guest and very good friend of blogging. The Boys Dot Com the one the only legendary Cleveland browns offensive lineman. Now you can find them making his way on NFL network. He's one of the only guys in these times that uses an actual microphone while he's on camera which I know. I appreciate Joe Thomas Joe. How's it going good guys? I appreciate you having me on I. It has been interesting obviously You know you and I were talking about before. We started recording Obviously these are very serious times for our world but watching. Nfl Network all day long. It's kind of a good bit of publicity for Airports. You know what I mean like. Everybody's got the airports. I'm talking about. Yeah man it's it's funny because I've never really done the reporting from home thing and I know there's a lot of NFL network Reporters that do it very often. And so they've got the Nice lovelier Mike's and they've got the big setups while I was totally unprepared and I was supposed to be on TV all week with those guys. And so all I got is my podcast setup which is the The apple headphones the Air Pot and the giant. Yeti Mike I bought on Amazon and so I've been getting a lot of teasing because of my setup you know what I'm comfortable with the size of my mind. I think it looks professional. And you mentioned the podcast host of the Tomahawk show would injure Hawkins who cowboys fans real cowboys. Fans will remember from fourth in Long Obviously was the runner up to Jesse Hawley You guys have one of the better you know. This is such a great day and age. Where or podcast run by players and guys that have been there and done that you guys do a great job You know bring a little of everything I know you guys had Dez on a while back to. We did. Yeah we had does on when he was talking about potentially signing with the browns Both the engine. Ira FORMER TEAMMATES IN CLEVELAND. So obviously our podcast. Kinda always says a few good Cleveland hits but we always try to hit all the NFL stuff and He was the receiver and I was offered to them and we both retired for us. We still got a lot of Nice contacts in the NFL which which helps spice up the pot a little bit. Great having does on talking about maybe coming to Cleveland which ended up not happening. But it's now it's It's always good. It's always great to listen to you guys hit They'll use a whole generally Enough for everybody to enjoy and with regards to the cowboys. I don't know if you've ever felt the sort of social media weight of cowboys fans but I have a feeling that happened this week. you know you're on NFL network as you mentioned in in the Thomas Bunker so to speak and you mentioned a free agent at the time that you and I are talking at least it's still a free agent. Dan Cloudy you said the cowboys Devyani. Let's make it happen. I think everybody's kind of wondering what went into that because I know you got a lot of response. Oh state your case. Absolutely you know I work with Michael Irvin on Thursday night football every week and so by I are good buddies and I absolutely know that obviously the cowboys fans are the most numerous and probably one of the most passionate fan bases at all pro sports and so anytime you say anything about the cowboys. Twitter is going in a twitter about your Evian. Connie this week was was exciting but really it makes a Lotta sense that I'm not sure after signing Gerald McCoy the numbers can still work at this point But for me they had just lost Robert Quinn. Who obviously was your leading sacker last year. Great Pass rusher but not the all around player that should have in. County is a played against it having Connie a bunch of times. When he's with the Texan he's a disruptive force. He's a guy that you have the game plan for. He's not a guy where just on third down he tries out on the field and you can throw tight end. Adam and Kinda chip or get a little extra bumper a slide and you can take care. He's a force recor. He's a guy that in the run game. You GotTa have a plan for a lot of times. You have a hard time running at him because of how good he is making blockers myths. And when you have a guy like that who you have the game plan around he makes everybody's defense better so there's thirty two teams in the NFL. That Jude Evian. Connie was out there. On defense they would find a way to get him on the field and he would make that defense better and to me. That's way more valuable than a guy that's going to have ten or twelve sacks every single season so I think there's huge value with county. I think the reason that he hasn't been signed yet. is twofold one. He was asking for a lot of money. And maybe the market wasn't exactly there to reset the market for outside linebacker pass rusher. He pensive and types but also he has the medical issues throughout his career. Obviously he had the microfracture in the coming out of college and he's had some knee issues In the NFL he had some core muscle injuries. Last season with Seattle and with the current state of affairs occur. Virus teams are going to want to get their hands on you and have their team physicians. Check you out in person. They don't WanNa just rely on somebody else's report if they're going to give you a bag of money and with colonies asking price being you know. Probably fifteen to twenty million per season. It's GonNa be tough the NFL has banned all in person. Visits for teams. Go out eleven nine. A guy like that right now that they have medical questions about something. I think it makes a of sense. That teams are kind of waiting and they're a little bit lukewarm right now especially in high asking price but with the cowboys in a team that is set up for a super bowl. Run Right now. They got the quarterback they got running back. They got the old line. They got the receiver. They got a very good defense. They WanNa make a splash. They WANNA be able shore up that defense. That Defensive Line into me. Connie just made perfect sense. I think that's really well said on cloudy. And I know that that's kind of started to be reported that Obviously medicals and Physicals and things like that are you know obviously In limbo so to speak and cloudy is a guy who is certainly more imperative than maybe ravage player just given as you mentioned his injury history. I do really believe I. I think that that's that's where I don't WanNa say you lost cowboys fans but A lot of cowboys fans are such a pessimist or You know really help him right. So when you say that you know there's super bowl contenders every cow was a lot of cowboys. Fan Scoff at that. So yeah right you know. Whatever this the team to win eight nate I mean. Do you really buy that. They can contend because I think a lot of people look at you and I were talking on Thursday. This is the day the Eagles described area. Slight so are people looking at Philadelphia and San can even be Philly but you think I guess they're one of the contenders in the NFC. Well there's no question you know. I think they had some issues last year. Some people would say coaching issues. I'm not gonNA throw any stones at the last coaching staff. But certainly it was a staff that have been there a long time and they had tremendous production. You look at the numbers from Yardage sampling point sampling. I mean they're the top of the game all over the place and you look there stats and you're going. Why aren't they winning? More Games right. And so when you have a disconnect between the number of wins and the production that you're getting offensively and defensively you gotta say there's an issue and I and I think truly that people in that organization Cowboys leadership believed that it was a coaching problem. And so they brought in a Guy Mike McCarthy who is a super bowl winning coach. I grew up in Wisconsin. I currently live there. Mike McCarthy's a very good coach. He's bringing in a very very good staff and a lot of times just that change of scenery change of coaching staff Four team can really be an impetus to motivate of and bring the best out of guys and bring that competitive spirit out of players. That maybe they weren't getting because of Some real Some getting used to comfortable with the previous coaching staff because they had been there a long time And so I definitely absolutely think that they are super bowl. Contenders with the makeup of that Roster with that new coaching staff that they've been brought in and I think Jerry Jones and Steven Jones believed that that's why they're paying some of these guys this these big bucks. That's why they re re signed Amari Cooper and they franchised act because they think that they could win right now now they lost Byron Jones in the secondary. And they lost Robert Quinn and when you want to replace somebody in the secondary. Sometimes you do that on the defensive line right because there's two ways to defend the pass in the NFL. Either sack the quarterback or you play better coverage and so I really believe that as time passes as Carney's price continues to slide a little bit because that's how things work in three agency the longer into free agency that we go. The more that big money dries up the more the value gets really attractive for some of these players. Because you don't have to pay them as much and so that's why I still believe that there can be a potential to get Connie in Dallas. I think that that's that's certainly good logic and fair logic and I think when you when you kind of peel the onion back a little bit you know the more you talk about the more it makes sense Something that I'm curious as somebody who's been there although you didn't necessarily experienced in your career because now Cleveland Brown through and through You know we see guys like a one year deal you know one year proved ill etc? You can go hit free agency next year. Maybe that really is the case for cloudy. Kind of what we've talked about. This is a very strange time in the world. And so maybe that's just kinda how the cards fell. And so maybe. He looks at twenty twenty an opportunity. Let me just go Sort of a mercenary somewhere. And then I'll cash in like I really want you in twenty twenty one. Do you think that that is earn your experiences? That a real thing and if you know assuming that Israel thing this playing for the cowboys kind of elevate that like let me go play one year for the cowboys like the whole kind of get my name out there and then I'll cash next year. Oh it's absolutely a real thing because football is such a violent sport players want that long-term security that comes with a long term contract because typically a lot of years in the contract means it's going to be a higher dollar guaranteed money right and with the amount of injuries the injury. Nfl is just about one hundred percent. Everybody's GonNa get hurt and so being able to get that long-term deals huge but if you can't get that long-term deal those warning approve. It deals a lot of times. They turn out to be great for both the player and the team. 'cause YOU'RE GONNA get the absolute best version of that guy for one year and so for a team like the cowboys opinion are built for a championship right now to be able to get a guy like JEB economy. Who's out there trying to prove that? He is the best outside linebacker defensive end because he knows he's GonNa get hit free agency the next year. You're going to get the best out of him. He's GonNa play through injuries. He's going to give everything. He's gotten a meeting room on their practice field and on Sundays. That could be a great recipe for that defensive line and that Defense. They have a fantastic. When you gotTA DISRUPTIVE FORCE LIKE CONNIE? Who's planned his best version of himself. I would be remiss if it did not ask given your NFL career about the cowboys offensive line. You obviously are one of the greatest players in Wisconsin's history travis. Frederick also hails from Wisconsin. He has the you know. I feel like you know on Sunday night. Football guys like say their name in the school travis gets the like. It's perfect Wisconsin. You know what I mean You know there's so much that's been said about how great they all are. I would your thoughts. Just I guess in. Gen on the offensive line and granted they. Are you know everybody gets older And I think people have lost a little bit of confidence in them but they're still regarded as one of the best in the NFL. Yeah absolutely I mean For several years they were handed down the best unit in the NFL in my opinion And they certainly have been a top five unit for at least the last maybe decade Without looking at the numbers right in front of me. They've been fantastic. Really since. Tyran Smith and Jack Martin and Travis Frederick Got Together. They've been at the top of their game and now with Lil Collins at right tackle. I don't know th there's no lines in the NFL that really Have been able to compare year in in your outs. The cowboys and so it's easy to be discouraged. A little bit because of the outcome from wins and losses standpoint but an offensive of line is only responsible for so much your response or blocking passing run and the rest of the team is responsible for doing things with the football other than other than the center. Snap of the ball. They can't put the ball in the end zone and so they do their part the best of their ability and a lot of times they get a little bit more credit than they should when the teams are good and they get a little more blamed than they should when the teams aren't as good so If I was a cowboy fan I would still be counting my blessings with how fantastic they have it on the offensive line. And like you mentioned I love Travis Frederick. He's got a great beard and he's got a great Wisconsin accent too No I mean totally Travis's great and again that the you've got to say it right. I'm not from Wisconsin. But even I can get that and I can understand that You know you guys on the Tomahawk. Show you get into a variety of things besides football you guys talk food every now and then You know I think this. This type of stuff is helpful for everybody in the current climate. What's your what's your meal lifestyle like right now. What what kind of recommendations? You've got me when everyone's hold up everyone's quarantining house Joe Thomas handling everything from a dietary staple. Yeah Man I. I love to eat my My big passion that I got into when I retired was starting to cook because I couldn't boil water when I retired. My wife did all of it but we had a baby right when I retired. We had four little kids and she was like. Hey it's your turn go and so I really dove into it And I've always been a big hunter big Fisher and so my freezers packed with all the fishing game that I've been collecting over the last year and so I really you know trying to make the most of this. Corentin this Isolation at home where I pulled out a lot of the stuff. That's in the back of the freezer. Pull out those Denison back straps pulling out some of that fish. I've been catching Last summer and Just tried to explore new recipes and got a lot more time to surf the web. So looking things that would give me Some excitement enjoyment things. I've never done before and combinations. I haven't had time to do because you know everybody's lives such a busy life in today's age and all of a sudden you wake up one day and it's like now you have all this time on your hands because literally everything's been cancelled but just having this little bit of free agency in the NFL. In light of the terrible things that are going on in the world and the lack of Everything normal life. That's happening you know having these little Respites got an opportunity this week to go on. Nfl Network Talk Free Agency. Get go on this podcast with you. Guys talk about cowboys and the NFL. It kind of distracts you get your mind off it for a little bit And I definitely appreciate that but Let's see what am I gonNA make tonight? I'm not sure maybe somebody some Jamaican jerk chicken wings or something like that. Kinda jet get my mind thinking island because it just snowed and I just had to cancel my spring break chip. So maybe maybe that little little semblance of normalcy. Now I agree in your ride. It is It has been nice. You know to do what we can to distract ourselves and I know we kind of played around with it but I have been interested to see the setups that you know different reporters and people like you have You know there's you know how many different books you know like there's a lot of free publicity going around for books on shelves I would also be remissed if I if I did. Not Mention and I'm excited asked this question. I went to The first time my dad and I went to a hall of fame was in two thousand and eight and we. It was the summer and we took a trip We WENT OUT TO CLEVELAND. Browns training camp as well and just to check it out and it's a very different experience during the cowboys camp I'm not sure if it's still in that same spot if it's been on the entire time that cute little neighborhood And so walking around Iran into two people that were just decked out in Joe Thomas Gear and I mean I don't know if it's letting you're SORTA signals go off There was a man a woman and the woman had an orange. Mohawk and I walked away from that just thinking in these people really love Joe Thomas Picture with them and everything and it was a year maybe three or so years later. I was watching. I think it was the NFL. Top One hundred and they were doing the profile on you. You know how they have like plan abused staff and I believe I as I understood. The woman was your grandmother. Is that correct so all along? You thought that I had a big fan base in Cleveland but they were nothing more than paid family members. It was actually correct. Yes there was actually my aunt and uncle so and I I yes I do. Pay Them to show us the training camp here on. It was so awesome though because I just thought that they were the most passionate and again this was two thousand eight so I mean this was very that was what your second season so I mean I was. I was just into the man. Your uncle was wearing a Joe Thomas Pro Bowl Jersey And it was. It was so cool and It's always been kind of my personal favorite Cleveland browns memory When when the movie draft day came out I was just so you know my dad and I were talking about and everything and so I always did not totally understand exactly always like I said I. I kind of thought there was some familial connection but That's pretty cool. I mean again if you can put an Orange Mohawk on For whatever price epic it's only worth it Yeah if If you want cowboys fans to feel better about themselves right now since you haven't had a super bowl championship in a while Tribuna browns fan. We haven't even been to the playoffs in two decades. The Super Bowl so time to count your blessings cowboys. Fan Joe Thomas Well we appreciate you taking the time we appreciate the logic.

That's that's really what I came away from this discussion thinking is that you know there is a legitimate sort of way you can think about this where it makes sense. It's not just a lot of people I think thought. Oh it's just a name out to the cowboys. Whatever no I mean again I kinda by it. A little bit So we'll see but I really by that. This whole situation at the world is in is affecting obviously the medical side of free agency and Judy clowns player. Who That is something? That is very very critical foreign so it makes sense that teams would want to be able to see things themselves which has delayed this whole process and then money starts to dry up and so we'll see what happens. Which would have gone cloudy where he ultimately ends up once again big time. Thanks Joe Thomas Again. This was a bonus episode of the show.

GSMC Sports Podcast Episode 541: Sweet 16 OT Thriller (3-29-2019)

"This is your ultimate stop for everything. Sports, the Golden State media concepts or podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB the NBA to MMA? It's all in here. The Golden State media concepts sport spot cast, listen. Hello. And welcome to the GMC sports podcast. Brought to you by the G S M C podcast network. I'm your host Jeff Mallon off. And boy, we've had some exciting Sweet Sixteen games already. And we're halfway there to find out who's going to be in the elite eight we had an overtime thriller routine. Purdue in Tennessee, we're gonna be talking about mainly. We also have some trades and signings the NFL to be discussed that were kind of big news as well. Sean Payton kind of batching on some head coaching signings. Which is pretty entertaining as well. As more news about the NBA in banning fans from arenas this time. In boston. We'll talk about that in the reason for it and ain't thousands discussed we will discuss. So let's get right into it. The elite or I'm sorry this week sixteen heading into the lead eight we have four participants all ready in the elite eight and we had some games yesterday. Most. Notably between Purdue and Tennessee as do hang on to win and overtime ninety nine and ninety four over Tennessee in one heck of a game. Ecorse Edwards who might get like most outstanding player if they win the tournament for Purdue does he had another amazing game between nine points. Kline himself had also twenty seven, and it was just a great game to watch all around if you missed it. But Purdue was up forty by eleven going into the second half. A man Tennessee went on a run got them in overtime. But it wasn't enough but hats off to Tennissee for an amazing season. You're they're probably going to be back again real soon. So but Purdue gets into the lead for the first time since two thousand so almost twenty years. And I believe last time are let's check last time there in the lead, shall we? They lost Wisconsin sixty four to sixty in two thousand in the elite eight and they really haven't made it to the final four since nineteen eighty and they have not won a championship. They were runners up in nineteen sixty nine. But as that is as close as they got this was produced third straight entry into the Sweet Sixteen. So they lost last two appearances. They were in the Sweet Sixteen so good on them to get over that hump to get into. They lead eight. But there's still a lot more to come throughout this. Tournament and looking at it right now. It's gonna be interesting to say, the least if we're looking at the brackets at the moment, it will be Virginia versus Purdue in the elite eight and it's funny. How Genia went onto lose to Baltimore County last year in our in the late this year. That's a good turnaround. They almost did lose number twelve Oregon. So it will. It was interesting to say the least how this team doesn't really have all hot a low seeded teams for some reason. But regardless they are facing Purdue, and I pay Purdue to win the national championship. I did produce in the whole tournament. So I'm gonna keep on with that. And they have proven why I picked them. They just have some great players all around. That is the only official matchup. That's no, I'm sorry. We have Texas Tech. Also in the in the lead eight as well. And I'm pretty sure they the winner of those two gangs face each other. When it comes down to the final four, I could be wrong on that. But we'll see as for Texas Tech. They had a not gonna say exciting game. But they the game against Michigan. This you were the runners up last year, but cannot repeat that same Agic this year as they fall sixty three to forty four. I mean, the first half was twenty four to sixteen. It was well, it was dull I really don't else to say about that. It was just dull, nonetheless and. Like in. It's really hard look at but. They had a seventeen though start this season. And it just this win the end not even getting to lead. But Texas Tech. Keeps on hold on there. I know they're number three. But I guess you can call them the underdogs in the situation. If you had I guess maybe Purdue is it's really hard to pick a underdog per se in this year's league. Because like like I was saying before an earlier podcast is very top heavy. Year. And like, I guess since Virginia Tech is the lowest seed in this number four. That's continuing to stay in it at least, they're the dogs horse. They are facing Duke. So they might not make it pass them. But it is very interesting to see what the what the other the other. Two games in the lead will be, but it's gonna be interesting to say, the least the other games that are happening. Like, I said our Virginia Tech and Duke today as well as Michigan state and LSU Auburn UNC. And of course, Houston in Kentucky. So obviously, all these. I wa I'm sorry. Auburn is the fifth seat. So yes, they're the lowest honestly fifty relieved that low in this in this circumstance. They had a face a hires a lower seed number twelve seed at this point during the in the beginning around slate and really have any much to overcome to be honest. So there's not a lower seeded team. So with that being said. Is this a predictable final four future? Final four in possibly the numb three of them. Being number one seed like I was predicting earlier or maybe there's more to it than we think. Maybe they'll be five seat in there in a four seat in there. Maybe Arizona, Irv Virginia Tech excuse me will pull off quite possibly the impossible facing the Duke and Auburn facing North Carolina. So there is a lot of. Well, a lot of. A lot of adversity over kind of the lower seed teams. But I I was talking about this for some people are there, but imagine the hype and imagine the hype and the. The just overall well guess just hype in general if it was between UNC and Duke in the final in the national championship game, which is very possible. That is I think already discussed this. But I can't get over the fact how huge that would be. And it's just it will be one hell of a game. If Purdue doesn't make it. I hope it's versus North Carolina because that will be maybe the the college basketball game of this century. Like the most viewed basketball game ever like ever. Regardless of league or anything is between Indiana state and Michigan state when Larry Bird Magic Johnson faced one another in the national championship game. And the closest the second highest rated is half of what? Michigan savers Zini and estate magic versus bird. Did. That's how insane. This would be. I would say I don't think it will catch that to be honest with you. But I would definitely put that this is a contender for one of those viewed would be the contender flew on the most viewed games of all time in basketball, but like it would compete with the finals of I think it would get more views in the NBA finals. And yeah, it just would be that that it would be such good business in in that kind of sense of they won't be say doesn't rig the game or anything like that. I don't think that's going to be the case. But. Regardless. I think it's were along the lines of just what's the best matchup for the national championship in quite frankly. It's it's it's North Carolina versus Duke. I mean, the store lanes are in for themselves Zion hasn't played the plane the last two games due to injury. And then he when he returned in the tournament, they defeated North Carolina North Carolina has lot to prove they could beat Duke with Zion. The they beat beat Duke multiple times without Zion. So that is a. A bit of a you Asterix in that in that in this rivalry this year. So it would definitely be one of the most interesting matchups in college basketball history in national championship game. If that is the case, but both teams are barely do barely hung onto where they are now. So we'll see how they can. Head on themselves against Virginia Tech this upcoming game today. But honestly. Like, I'm Lovin the tournament. Like, I wish there were would. I wish there were more upsets. Absolutely. I love the fact that number sixteen seed one last year, and I love win fifteen beat the two seed and so on and so forth. I think it's I think it's like that opportunity of anything can happen type scenario. I think everyone thinks that as well. I'll anyone expects those type of teams and make it to the final four or anything like that. But I mean, the Galil Chicago last year they made it to the final four, and they were they were the talk of the nation. So it's always great to have some underdogs. But it's also great to have the elite teams go at it one on one. You know, what I mean, it just feels like if you want the most entertaining games yet the play the best teams against one another. And right now, the best teams in the country are facing each other. I mean, that's just I mean, it was proven with the Tennessee versus. Purdue game. Like those two teams to the best teams in the nation. And they proved it out there, and they proved it against one another and do is showing why they deserve to be there. And it's just one of those instances where you're looking at it and going this is what we pay to see this is what basketball's all about. This is what the turnament all about. Whether but every bracket has been broken officially, I think CBS sports all their all their brackets broken and pressure. There's no other perfect bracket out there in the world right now if there is all be shocked, but they're obviously not for like the million dollars or anything like that. So with that, I guess even with how it's like an all one two three four and five seeds in it. You know, like the lowest seat is a five seed and yet no one producing this this week sixteen to happen in this elite eight to be as it is already. So it's truly remarkable to see how much has changed or how much people expected upsets the season. I guess, but like I said I thought it was top heavy and. We'll see how everything turns out this these games. I'll preview let's just look at the games that are on today. Besides just preview them out is doing predictions right now. The first game on today is LSU Michigan state and I picked LSU to win before. And attended a sick by that. I also said UNC over Auburn, I said do Virginia Tech and I said Kentucky over Houston. But I might change that to Houston. I've seen them like watching them play back again. I think they have a real shot at upset in Kentucky for sure bowl CR. Everything turns out when it comes down to it. Obviously those game start around four. I think I saw a one time like four nine PM, which is like that's the Pacific time. I was like that's. Extremely odd to have that happen. I just I why. So specific four nine pm wanted to say for nine PM, thirty seconds. You know, make make it super specific. Obviously, there's stuff I don't know about the timing of shows and network and stuff like that. But doesn't fall ninety sounds strange like one oh five PM for football games. Sometimes on the on the Pacific coast. Always ought to me. Like at least that's like on the big on the clock. It's on one of the big numbers. You know, it's on it's on one. It's on the big one like so five ten fifteen twenty. But oh nine like, that's just I think that's a little much. Okay. Maybe not a little much me. That's wrong word to use. But I think it's more along the lines of just like that's just unnecessarily specific. You know, it just to me if feels more along the lines of just like does and need to be like that. Again. I'm not a part of a network or anything. I don't really know how it all works. But. I just I'll just look at us for nine and have a bit quish Mirka my head. But I'm looking for all the games. I know you were all too, and we are going to take a short break when we come back. We will be talking about the NFL little bit as Sean Payton had some choice words for certain head coaching signings. And we're gonna talk about that when we return. Are you looking for the very best NFL and college football podcast, then checkout GSM, see football podcast.

We just finished talking about the Sweet Sixteen match ups that happen. Yesterday's was today's matchups and time that they are playing and as well as who's in the elite eight in Purdue all those other things now, let's move on to some football talk as Sean Payton had some choice words to say about. Hey, coaching hirings. And. Basically, what he said was this ultimately, ultimately, you would say if we did a little history successful head coaches, probably come from the east in the west and north and south. They probably come up both color, and they probably come on defense and on offense. And they're good leaders. The lack of diversity also had led to some calls for action. That's an interesting take on it. And he was also just saying. He he was he capped off by saying some teams are making mistakes and the saints cannot wait to play them. And they are and they're so focused on getting the next Sean McVay. That other qualified coaches are getting pigeonholed never heard that same before forgetting opportunity prove themselves. So he basically is disagreeing with a lot of the choices that the NFL teams are making regarding. Regarding the what you're looking for in a head coach. So a lot of teams have signed a lot of young inexperienced coaches, and they're looking for that John McVeigh type thing where it's like, let's give this guy opportunity. He could totally become this guy, and we get to the Super Bowl on a couple of years when in reality shove as a very rare. He's rare that's just the bottom line. He's a rare piece of coaching prowess that gets that can just he has the charisma he has the ability to really rally teams players around him. And it just there. He knows what to do on the offense aside and gets the job done. He knows how to work everybody around, and he just has very talented team around him as well. And obviously some coach hirings were, you know? You know, they were they were kind of they were not controversial, but questionable again based on age and experience, and that kind of stuff, and so with that being said, it's interesting to say, the least how these coaches will do we don't know how the coaches will do yet. Obviously these a lot of first year coaches will see how each of them play out and six of the eight new head coach is higher this offseason came from an offense of background and two of them were offense corner actually three of them were offense coordinators last season. And with that being said. Is turning into an offense of league that is for sure. And a lot of these guys are young and haven't had head coaching experience. Like I said before. So it's interesting to see what the who what you're looking for mainly in a in a head coach nowadays. But. I'm I'm going to be optimistic about these coaches until I see them play in the regular season till they play teams until like how they gotta do. And of course, you can't look at one year coaches and think that's what they're going to be the rest of their careers. I mean, look at Bill bell check like I was watching football life the other day yesterday. And I was watching the nineteen ninety five Browns. And Bill Belichick coach there for like four four and a half four or five years nineteen or not about four years, and he got he was starting really to win. He was starting to win some winning. He had a he was getting a winning season with the Browns and ninety five they were actually projected to Super Bowl by some experts. Then of course, the the news of them moving Baltimore came and everyone just kinda lost faith. I guess. And is on a sandwich. When you're you're just crushed like that type of thing. So that's just a more of a moral like just setback in in one thing like in one way or another. And then also like Bill Belichick again, we all know what happened with him. Nick Sabin was part of that coaching staff, and they both became to the most successful, head coaches. In both college in NFL respectively. So with that being said you like obviously the firing of Wilkes last season when it came to. When it came to fire in Arizona's head coach after one year, obviously was premature by some people and others said they didn't see much out of them. But again, we'll see how that goes down will see how his future holds. Maybe he gets in there up to be head coach somewhere else. We'll see. But. And I think that a lot of coaches are in a in a pressure situation a win now, except for coaches that get these multi you're obviously Jon Gruden ten year contract. He wasn't supposed to win. Now. He was supposed to win when they get to Vegas and tame with how Shannon and he got a six year contract with a six year contract for the general managers. So they had a chance to rebuild as well. With their looking good as well raiders just got in Tokyo Brown. So we'll see how they end up. They have five first-round trap picks in the next two years. So you know, they could be looking good for the future as well. So in my in my mind, I've always thought give coaches time and some teams just don't. You know, you can't give a guy to three year deadline when a lot of these teams a five year plan when they get a new head coach. But they see these guys who come right out of the gate winning with a team. But when you looking at those teams they were built for to win, right? Then it just the previous head coach wasn't getting the job done sometimes used to eat a new change in scenery or new changing coaching to really move a team up. And a lot of times teams think they have the talent. And then all they need is head coach, and boom, they're champions. But in reality, they need everything they need a lot more than what they think they need. And that's when they blamed the head coach and use that maybe as a scapegoat, in my opinion to really not blame themselves. So that's just my that's always been my take on it. And with that. I always. I always think like coaches should get these five year contract because I think five years is a good point to where you're looking at it and going, okay. I get it. The make sense. That's a logical length of time to build a team. And maybe ten years is a little long hundred million dollars a little much, but that is my choice to make. And then also, we're. Sticking with the NFL here. The NFL is waiting on. The tyreek decision. Until thirties closing investigation. So. The NFL's not disciplined him until they figure out what everything's going on which they always should have done. They have they have multiple times suspended players without the investigation being finished at investigation being closed, and they just hear what's going on. And so I've never really liked that per se. So I'm very happy that they're actually going to be patient with this instead of just pulling the trigger right away. And you know, I just think they should keep this kind of idea for the FIA ble forseeable future. I think overall it's the right thing to do like wait till you have all the evidence before you make an abrupt decision about a players. Suspension or anything like that? Because there's been multiple times over where the NFL like supposedly doesn't have any evidence. And they suspend the guy for an extended period of time. So I just think like maybe a little patient. You know? Might my opinion. At least like you gotta be a little patient when it comes to this kind of thing because it's a very sensitive subject, and you don't know what's right and wrong in this circumstance. You know, you don't know what's the actual situation. What's the real stories behind it? And what else is going on? And that just basically how it goes like, I just think sometimes the NFL pollster, I think everyone can agree that the NFL sometimes pulls the trigger way too early when it comes to suspensions and such like that. So as of right now, we really don't know anything about the case when it comes to Terry. We don't have all the information. But if it does turn out that he is going to be suspended for an X men of games that really puts Patrick Mahomes in a tough spot right away. And when I mean by that is I he was his cream haunt which everyone thought it would be a big was a big was a blow to the team. But he still had a great wide receive the best one best parts here is in the NFL. And the best tight end the NFL. But if you lose one of that as well if he loses Tari kill. Is does that mean he's not gonna have another great season? Or is this going to be like this is a season that he needs to prove that he deserves to be where he is deserves being MVP not just because talented team is around him. So this is definitely like a if there is no tyreek hill by the by this for the season. This is Debbie approve it year for him to say, hey, yeah. I had a great him around me. But I did my part to make sure everyone was one games. And I was the MVP is of my own volition. But I honestly believe he is that talented. I honestly think he deserve that MBP. It's just I think for the doubters it's that situation where looking at an and going. Yeah. Well, he had these amazing guys on his team that many would die for you know, what I mean? I think it's going to be the point where you're looking at it and going, well, if he can't get it done this year without tyreek hill and without cream Han, then maybe this was. Paul fluke. I can understand that that argument to be honest. But overall, I think that he's gonna be fine. I think the cheese are just find. I think reads the perfect kinda coach to work around that kind of bull crutch in a sense. I think it's more of a crushing anything else. But yeah. That's just how these things are gonna go down. But we're gonna take another short break. And when we come back, there's actually a major trade multiple trades that happened the NFL is well, then he's discussed and we'll get right on that.

Welcome back to the GS emcees sports podcast finished talk about Sean Payne and his taught about the new head coaching Chinese this here as well. As tyreek hill and his pending this regarding the vista Gatien of child abuse in his home. And moving on to. The trading news that happened the offseason already. I think it was yesterday. Maybe the day before that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded for running back toward and Howard of the Chicago Bears for a twenty twenty six round pick. I'm sorry. A conditional pick as in for nothing. The twenty twenty six six pigs actually for Quinn of the dolphins edge rusher Tadao, which we also we'll talk about. But the fact is Jordan Howard has had multiple thousand yard seasons. He's gained three thousand three hundred seventy yard in his first three seasons, which is third in the NFL and score twenty four touchdowns in that time, and they just gave him away. And I'm not exactly sure what the bears doing here. I thought he did perfectly fine last season. I didn't see any reason to trade him for conditional pick. Like, I would expect a third round pick up best. He's worth third-round, picking my opinion. And it's crazy to think they way with them for so little unknown. Why seen any reason why they would give him up to me maybe contract purposes for the future? I really don't know the actual answer. But hopefully, we'll find out more soon. But I'm assuming it's gonna be for it's for contract purposes. Well, let's look at his current. Well, he's when he goes on a rookie contract still maybe there, maybe I believe they are more thinking about. A contract extension for the future. I mean, let's look at his current contract rookie deal. It's only three your. It's only a three year deal at the moment. Well, it's a four year two point five million dollar deal. He was going to be a free agent starting next season. So yes, it and it was two million dollar cap. Hit. So. It was I guess does help the fact that it was going to be. A lot of money for this season. But his current dead contract. Only for the bears is twenty sixty two thousand dollars. So it's basically dead cap at all for the bears at the time. So. And the reason is getting two million this year is he proven proven performance bonuses earned. And last year is getting six hundred thirty thousand dollars for that year now is going to million dollars. So obviously he's going to be used a fifth round pact. That's why his contract so low. So obviously this next season after this season he's going to get a massive contract extension. If he gets another thousand yard season around there. So it makes sense in theory to get rid of Jordan Howard. But men, I think they could have kept them. Could into a deal, and it just I think it coulda worked out. I think they could have kept him. But. Obviously, they did pay Khalil Mack all that money. And that is that it does put a damper on things when it comes to other contracts going to have to pay. So I guess they did have to sacrifice. In elite running back in my opinion or up potentially running back in Jordan Howard. And I think that's just. That's just interesting say at least, I don't know who the bears will have running back anywhere. But I think that's gonna hurt them this year. I think I don't think I'll hurt them by a lot. But I think it's going to hurt them in a part of their offense game because he was kind of like an insurance policy if you will for for. Mitchell Trubisky and with all that being said it's getting to a point where maybe the clue macrey. This is where it's going to hurt them more than anything. He's other contracts for other players, you know, so that's where that has hurting. But overall, they still have an elite defense in my opinion. I think everyone's opinion tha a top tier defense in the league and. I think it'll be fine the long run. But definitely losing part of that to the running game is get hurt. But. Again with the loss. And then you look at the eagles side with lots of JJ to an ACL injury. They needed a running back, and I think that's a huge edition with also the. With also the Carson Wentz under center, alshon, Jeffery at the receiver at at the on the receiver and of things the eagles do have a chance to really win the NFC east this year people are thinking it's be the Cowboys. But you know, if I had to make an absorption right now. Just based on how I see both teams. I might. Might have to stick with the eagles and taking them in the NFC eased. I just there's just a lot of times at the does have disappointed with a lot of talent on their roster. And that's just how I have always seen. It is it the coaching who knows. But regardless it's one of those things you're looking at into going. Obviously is between. It's between two people is between two teams and between the Cowboys and the eagles and who's gonna take the NFC's toy the Redskins taken it. No do. I the giants taking God. No. And that's just what's really going to be going down in the long run is it's basically these two competing between. The the you goes in the Dow's I mean competing for that spot in the NFC the tops on the seas in spun playoffs, but it is possible then for them to both make a playoff playoff appearance. I mean one can take wildcard in one. I know I'm stating the obvious. That's how the world works. But I'm saying it's logical for that. All to be going down. And. Just a a logical a logical. Guess it's not like saying. Oh, the let's say. The. The Jaguars gonna go those Super Bowl. Like, you can't really say that quite yet. Or along those terms of like. Team's going go sixteen and no you can't make these assumptions. But this is a logical explanation of like these two teams are probably the most competitive in the NFC, and they are going to be fighting for that last playoff for that playoff spot in that in that sense of. Their division. So that being said there was also another trade regarding NFC east team. Like, I said Dallas Cowboys. Have traded for Robert Quinn of the. From the Miami Dolphins for a six round pick, which still proves the fact that. The Cowboys or the dolphins had met her own a complete. Rebuild mode. They're just getting rid of everybody. This is like a sweepstakes. Here take this guy take this guy, take that guy. You you get a you get a player and you're gonna play her everybody gets a player. That's just like how this kind of feeling in this situation. So with that being said. Who got the better deal? Jordan Howard frig initial piranha Quinn for six round pick. Well, the Dallas couple dinning and address your and the they both filled holes eagles needed a running back and rubber Quinn need in rusher. Obviously, this is a very interesting situation say to say, the least, but if I had to go with who got the better trade, I guess you can say who got the better deal. I think join Howard's a better long-term game because he's still on a rookie deal. He still extremely young. And and still doing a lot productively as running back three thousand yard seasons in his first three seasons is is serious accomplishment. And I think it's I think it's a good to be. It's going to be good. I think it's going to be the best better trade overall. I'm not saying robber, queens, not gonna do bad. I'm saying he's still contribute as well. To that helpful has a helpful edge rusher for the Dallas Cowboys. But I think join Howard's could help with a long run with the offensive with helping the offenses side offense of load for Carson wins and not him just worried about passing game but him having a good running back and getting production over there. But we're gonna take another quick short break. And when we return we'll finish up.

For more info. Welcome back to the final segment of that. She has sports podcast. I will also say this is my last show. I'm moving on to other ambitions. I guess you can say, but I'll tell you more about I'll just say how much I'll say my goodbyes afterwards. I'm just saying that this will be molest show. And fortunately, but it's been one hell ride, but moving on to the Celtics they banned a cell of Celtic fan benefit for two years for saying a derogatory slur to DeMarcus cousins of the warriors. I will not repeat what he said. But I'll say it starts with an end. And he's definitely been suspended for that for that. It's not lifetime. It just two years as last time I checked so. But that being said. The fact that. This continues to happen. The NBA these Dettori slurs in this offensiveness, I guess you can say. It's not right. First of all just sport. I'm assuming the guy was I'm just gonna go on. A limb and say, maybe he was drinking which could have been a factor. Why he said these things, but that that comes out of your mouth is pretty shameful and. Overall, you're looking at just. It's just dissappointing. It's just disappointing. It's to see people do that during a basketball game. No one deserves to be called that obviously your complete strangers to. So it's like, what are you? What do you? Why do you have the right to say that? And fortunately, he has been banned should've been lifetime ban. That's up to me. But it was a poor choice of words, and hopefully, they'll never he'll never see those things again. But again. May I it just it's a real disappointment. Just people are like this and overall, it's. Just wish this would stop. But unfortunately, it's we're at a place where we're in a we're in a world right now that they'll never stop. I don't think there will ever be a. Time with Al not happen. We're guardless of where. Regardless of what is going on the will be a fan or two that says pretty offensive things is just kind of how life works. But I think we're really brings out the good character. And people is how you respond to that not with violence or now with. Anything like that? But with. Maybe just with just ignore them. Not responsive. I know that's hard. It's not easy to respond to not respond to that. And not to fight back on that. And I've been called derogatory things for being Jewish like I've been in that kind of situation where it's hard not to say, hey, you know, what up yours and try to fight fight them on that, basically. So with that being said, I think would be a good example for the kids that you grew that are idolizing you as a player is not like, no one said the thing about rockets because his responding to that guy either. I I haven't heard a thing about markets. Like, I drew Marcus cousins all the credit in the world because I have heard absolutely nothing about his reaction to that. Either. Like if you just stared out on him inserts like shook his head. I don't know what exactly did. But it doesn't seem like it was a violent or a threatening action by two Marcus cousins after that guy. So I can mall credited the world for I don't know. All the details. It looks. It sounds like to me he kept his composure, and that's a big. Man is a big character move in my opinion. So that is a good example to bring on for kids watching you. That's how I always say it. So with that being said, I think that'd be our show today. And that is this could be my final show. I wanna say if you agree to disagree with me. I loved every second of doing the show. I've always had a great time. I loved always talking about sports, whether it was Mark Souza or just me. It's been an amazing ride. And I'm gonna use this what I've learned here to for my future work, and maybe I'll be doing. Hopefully, I'll be doing something of this same nature in the future wherever I go. But as for right now, I'm Jeff Vallon off. I'll see you later.

2019 Dallas Cowboy Season Predictions

"In how many how many how many how manny one two three five six nine who what i get up to hello and welcome to a new episode of how many the only podcasts on the internet that counts i i am one of your host jesse jackson and joining me tonight. Are i'm scott. I'm bob and junior. That's right. We got the base band. The core today afford any special guests extra david. All of our brian did workout workout. Yes string of dave's dave who gave t. it. Hey hey dave reitman dave now. When you open up the door dave's dave's not here and so tonight as we record. We're doing our long tradition. All three were predicting dallas cowboys record in seasons <hes>. If do you remember we did this last year. Then admit year we all were depressed then they turned around and we we went on a run playoffs but unfortunately they <hes> got shattered the second round better than what i think everybody it was pretty one eighty five predicted they would go to the playoff game lose it. Yes and i said the n._f._c. see championship box of the same thing and i think i was the most pessimistic breida's i._s. At eight eight eight no playoffs and halfway through the year. My prediction nation was looking really was but to our shock and awe they turned the season around shots you shop and they were able to surprise us all so moving into the next season. We're recording right now in august yes i was going to give that in context recording in august. They have not had their first preseason. Games is not on the field zeke is not sign he still holding out <hes> and and we we found out today that jerry jones goes to the mediterranean on vacations broiling. Yes let's and we just had today. The breaking news breaking news robert quinn has been suspended for the first two games of the season and now off he had already had his hand broken in training camp so he was expected to maybe miss a little bit of time beginning of the year anyway but another suspension to the ads the long list of how players that have gotten in trouble with the lead moore's at six straight years started. The season was also a common saying right. It's not fall till pumpkin spice. Lock day is out on starbucks. It is catholic season till the players have been took. A gel brings the hammer down somebody roster. I wanna know who else you can't be the only team that has this issue. We just know it more because it's not close to home but it. It doesn't feel like it happens to every team every year. Consistently you know it could but it's just again it's not they're not our teeth came. I'm from a fantasy football perspec- okay. There isn't a lot of instances where i can remember taking somebody off of my draft board because they were suspended ahead of time now that could be because a lot of these suspensions occur often sublime defense so it doesn't really upset awesome yeah but yeah to me. It just feels like it happens to the cowboys so consistently that you can just put money on it. If in fact there they betty line for the cowboys having at least one suspension <hes> beginning of the year i will put money on it every time right absolutely aweso in general terms before we make predictions any thoughts about argue optimistic or pessimistic. What do you think about this season junior here so there is some flags right off the bat in addition to the suspension like you mentioned before zeke holding out. I'm uh-huh out. I'm worried this is going to turn into another lady on bill situation last year. The steelers had super bowl hopes going into the year and and later on bill lead you you rail their season to the point where they were just a fringe playoff. Team didn't get very far if they even make the playoffs on anything they did so i could see a situation like that occurring to the cowboys now although sarah connor was a solid fuel yes he did he people from twelve when he wasn't enough of a game changer to keep their super bowl hopes alive. I'm wearing zeke may have the same kind of tally i he believes that he is the driving force of the cowboys office which he is because i think he plays vital role than dacca's just just because his skill level is higher in my so. I see him thinking oh. Hey if you don't mind me. The highest paid running back in the n._f._l. I'm not coming in this year now. Do the cowboys have enough to cover for that. Maybe to the point where they're seven nine eight eight alfred morris and the and you guys that they drought apparently there's a lot of things going on with him in training camp but i don't know i'm very pessimistic right now. Bob does the bell l. toll for the county other things. I'm very optimistic and i know there are causes for concern. The clintons stuff <hes> jerry. He's not getting any younger and they're going into this as not extending garrett so this is here at last for all. There's all everything seems to get line for them. To make deep deep runs year tax getting better. The gut cooper from the get-go y'all up is another year end. The defenses is deeper and more talented than it's been in forever. Get chris chard hard museum. A man had another year. I alway for me. All the girls. Don't hold off on your prediction scott. Okay yeah i'm with bob predominantly on the arrows pointing up but my arrows pointed upper tempered by the zeke holdout. I don't know that zeke is going to keep them from making the playoffs if he if he doesn't show if he doesn't show i. I don't think it'll keep them. From making the playoffs i would keep them from making a dent in the playoffs you getting getting anywhere playoffs and on kind of the the idea that even though yeah with the players on hey give it you can also kind of zeke by me it. You don't come in eh fine. We'll see how good you are after you set a season or two out and see at what you really worth. When you're you know you're getting older. You've had your bass kicked over the last lasted three years and i don't understand the mathematics of it. I mean you if you don't play this year. You sacrifice x. amount of dollars. Are you ever ever gonna earn that babble. The thought who's that whenever he does size contract it'll make up for all right but you just wonder if you put the map excel spreadsheet. Yes and i think that what you're saying about you know jerry fitting older and so on. I don't think jerry is going to let the year go away <music> without putting everything on the table number zeke's breaking on that because he is about zeke in reality. He shouldn't have any leverage because he's got. Two years left off the field crab right keep surfacing. If anybody was not realistic realistically position to pull this yet he still did because he knows how hard up the cowboys are too serious. It is gums pointed at each other. You're both loaded in in chambered in case who's gonna blink. They talked today. <hes> there's some shakiness in the kicker but like i didn't hear that tonight shaka thirty yards practice jeez yeah so there is <unk> open competition for kicking even though they haven't said but the guy they brought in isn't doing that great either so <hes> we'll see <hes> yellow rammed in bailey's <hes> and you know we got jason witten out of the booth back on the field. That's going to be interesting thing. I think he's only going to help from a leadership perspective. I don't know how much he has left as far as actual on field but i think he will. I hope the young tight ends as far as running rouse outta full blocks hopefully minus the penalties for passage it has it's going to be those converted third short. I think he's going to draw defenders and i think that's gonna help amar yeah you know but now amari they need to get into some balls downfield not ten yard apparently <unk>. There is increasing the amount of the balls that is a perfect transition awesome. What are we thinking about our new c. and quarterback coach kevin moore and kidnap. I honestly feel like it's going to be more of the same from what i've heard. The office has not really changed in our interview offer. Offer morris even say hey it was really easy for me to come back and get reintegrated in the offense because nothing has changed babies was talking about the terminology the plane the nazi geared going. Thank you about garrett how much control is really willing to concede knowing this is his maker blaze year level they talk to last was last week. They said lose commonplace your gear and said me garrett snap that he's still he's still had veto power. <hes> you know i think just from a philosophy standpoint. I don't think garrett's offense has been replaced with this high-octane close yeah all over the place offense offense not chance because more is now the fall guy instead of lennox liter routes and plays and things that they haven't ever really been using yeah yeah the boy genius so all right so it's time to put a percent on big of hers. If you don't mind <hes> i'm all in. I'm being optimistic in the past. I've always said to the championship game and even if they lose. I'm going to be happy. I am subaru of bus this year. Now our view on any caveats whether z. yes i. I am assuming z. Comes in they take care of everything they start the season off with the full. They're all their weapons loaded. All you know the full team and <hes> you know barring major injuries all that but i mean if their first half of the season schedules very yet z. They could get off to a really good start. It's hard to tashaun. A wreck considered an easy scheduled before the season starts so true true what we may it was an easy schedule last year but the giants for example yeah yeah saquon barkley and that's it. There's no no way it's impossible so semen plus. I n going eleven five and they make it to the super bowl. Wow shots ira since yeah just twelve and four super bowl war we'll and win super bowl not just get there like all jesse. You are win super bowl right not just get the yes. I the odd of my that's like fandom but my prediction officially is they make these unawed kaplan younger and play but i'll say may get loose because they'll probably say england or the shoes i just i'm is based on jerry pushing. All the ships in the table right zeke's here. You got frederick back from the start of the season the depth on defense i mean they could be railed injuries whatever but just face value. It looks like they're they're really time. Deep as norm right back at you pal said there are people also treat shelter betta done the do theory but i feel like to certain the reader do and i also being chris thirty. I don't know if he could take a disappointing season. It'll be interesting being in. This may be something we should wait until junior there but we should talk about what what do they have. This gear have to okay okay very nice all right so so again i'm going to have the caveat zeke comes in before the start of the season scientists contract <hes> <hes> all the bullets are loaded. If everything is right at the beginning of the year no major injuries from now until route of the season they have to go with all of those caveats in place. I think the cowboys will win the division. I think they will go eleven and five and i think they will make it one round house where they have been so. I think they will make it to the n._f._c. championship game but i do not think they will win. Okay i think they will end up playing team with a superior code. The rams the saints okay and i think that's where garrett will be exposed. Okay all right scott okay. I'll make this azizi on you. I'm i'm with junior. I think eleven and five to the n._f._c. championship but not past okay so that's all our prediction russian so worst case you gotta look at it from a talent perspective the cowboys i have one of the best defensive lines in league best. Linebacking core is in the league the best secondaries in the league. That's one of the best offense of lies in the lee of their their main detriments quarterback coaching and in the past you say wide receiver was leaked but now you say they got like pro pro football all focus. A river was ranked. The position went from thirty last year up to eleven like the top ten units and so rebel cob. That's an upgrade great overfull beasley again. It is legit that is third gummer so that's all are hopeful pick now. Does anyone wanna say we all believed the league. Jerry's gonna kick. No one wants to predict that weird as come see our combined but if he if he does pull beyond bill well i think the cowboys would go eight anti garrett would be a whole season. Let's see if the worst taste is the might. There's a couple of games i don't. I don't like the emmett van exactly. I don't think it's ever going to go four seasons. Did i think that gives here to pass caught kind of hope not but i would. I would think it would be more along. The lines may nine seven without the they're still they're still so their defense is so oh good i would go. I would go nine and seven to complain yeah. I'd probably go ninety seven and i will go ahead and say the i think the zeke's jingshan. I chicken shit maneuver but you know i won't i. I cannot put it online with what any en wasn't under contract that was that he wasn't hearing the finally ears to the two years to go on his frigate contract. You know anything about that is getting paid nothing because even less disease. I realize how much they've gone back for him and all this crafts yeah i mean yeah. That's that's the thing more than anything like impacts case that can't i say i'm one of the top quarterbacks in the league cedar say that so yeah in his defense a little bit i understand his thought process a little bit in writing and the law of the over there conceptually they would like to just live absolutely all right. I say garrett's back no matter what i think might be because he wants that pressure. That's jerry you know pushing it on the playoffs. Z. comes back and the full season. No no no excuses. It was so i don't i don't that's realistic civil jay okay since that scenario if they have everything and they did make the playoffs elsa guest then this team gave up on them and they would get rid of him but i fake short of if there is a legitimate excuse <hes> <hes> reason in jerry's mine not necessarily actually legitimate but if in jerry's my while this is the reason why he wants to to be his landlord yeah he knows what year to stay. He doesn't want to have to not keep geared. If they really want progress you would think he would have to say that they they just replicate last year. It's just more of the same if that would be if i was in tears in my expert here five years ago but that would be if you're wanting progress you gotta go farther the year before okay if they lose it. Garrett gives credit for it if they win guaranteed get credit for right while they go into. I don't know i and i don't see gary coming back because i think he's he's more will lose any isn't letter you know oh. He's had a five hundred record and won. I chan chan galea's was a winter coat. Just doesn't right. There's nothing this is a net zero sum. That's exactly what i was thinking. It's either good or bad. He's is there ila junior. I think he has to progress past what he did last year his job i think the reason jerry it did not extend him was to give him the opportunity to do better than he did last year and i think he built his roster from a talent standpoint. You were garret won't have built in excuse well. I don't have the talent to get me to get the talent is there hit him not having having that extension gifts jerry out to say okay. You know what we're going to go after sean payton. We're going to go after somebody that wanted before you get me where i wanna go so you think if they would have beat the rams here. Yes gal takes over there. If i was garissa manager what's not say. I was jerry jones but let's sake i would have that expectation. I would say you gotta get over that home. You know you you can't be <hes> next year in s. h. Fourth against you can't hear any time you know when we did nothing being with romo and you can make a lot of arguments about the talent of the team but at this point you know you need to show you can motivate motivate this team to take care of business. Bad teams beat them be competitive with good teams and then gain plan against a good team in the play awes- so that you can get to the n._f._c. championship and not win it make a competitive i mean how many times is he out coached. Somebody's exasperating. He's never as a cowboy fan. You're always like how often did romo lose because they gave the opponent too much time left air roger's gonna zip zip zip in and do it is downfield okay yeah. I've got a minute and a half. They swapped out coordinators multiple times writing his ten years it at a certain point you can't you have to stop blaming the offensive defensive coordinator looking yeah and common reminder. He is a huge racing fan. I yeah i want i want you to succeed. I think that is a a feel-good story waiting to happen that someone but i just he's gotta step up. I just want somebody somebody to succeed. I have nothing personally scared. I just want somebody to get this team to where even maybe they didn't have the talent amount but it looked like the coaching was adding value organization. It didn't matter wouldn't matter who it is. He seems like a nice enough guy i but yeah we just need to get more value out of that position. Absolutely all right <hes> so we're gonna put this in the camp will visit about halfway. Eh hopefully we'll be riding high. Though i got like last you're than if it flips the opposite <music> but in terms of show content last year was perfect because we were just a proud. They rolled her. I were at that game teamed tennessee tuesday. It was more cooper's first game and they lost in that was seen by punk rock bottom. They looked terrible that game. They were three five of that one. I believe anyway now. We've lost their version. He came back. It seemed why he was dead. Church all right so we want to hear what you say america so yes.

No cast touches. No kidding for more information about the sklar bunionectomy visit foot first, and by Electric Flex a global leader in electrical conduit for over sixty years makers of liquid Tide flexible conduit electrically connecting our world song Hello everybody. Welcome into the sportscaster and her son were Sports Bridges the gap between the generations. I'm yep Peggy kusinski 12 time Emmy award-winning sportscaster at NBC Chicago for Seventeen years. I'm the baby boomer. I'm Jason and I am dead. Now I can't even say that Jason. I don't always get along because the fact of the matter is that for the first time in his lifetime 18 years. Jason is living away from home at college. So we really can't fight at all. Yes. We do still share a mutual love of sports. And Jason is super lucky because you get to watch college football games. How is school going Jason? Who's going really really? Well. I've never really good time down here. I've met some good people. I've gotten all my schoolwork done when football games have an experience winning football, but the weather's great food. Great. People are great not really too much to complain about. I love it. What's it like going to live football games? Cuz we we here in Chicago have no idea what that's like, it's really really nice. It is really really nice. It's something that I feel like they all took for granted back before covet. When you run out something for a couple of months something that you really care about if it's the joy when it comes back so then do a few football games that you've been a really good time again hadn't really win to one too many of them. But regardless, I can't complain of happy to support the back in this episode the Bears. They're five and won three games shy of the Midway point of the season and yet Jason, I don't know if you can figure this out in Austin, Texas, but here in Chicago fans are not happy. It's the typical Chicago Bears fan that is not happy with the five. One record. It's perplexing. The offense isn't great. The defense is great yet. They are finding ways to win people in Chicago are not happy. Does that surprise, you know God no that does not surprise me in the slightest. Yep. Pause me know but I will say that the people from Chicago that I know here everybody's married. I didn't know if my buddies who were going to school across the country that a big Bears fans are even more excited. So I think that what you leave Chicago may experience of losing first and it's a lot easier to let the team. Yeah, it's been the typical you're you're not happy with the success and even Matt Nagy last week after their win over Carolina and Nick Foles felt the same way they were like, listen, we know it was winning ugly. But she is at least let us celebrate that were five and one. Yeah, I don't even think of the Carolina win was winning ugly. That was a game like where they thoroughly LED from like kick off to kneel down and that was the first win where it's a matter of fact, I think that we should all it for full quarter from the Bears and the Buccaneers win. Absolutely. Nobody should have been complaining about the Falcons win. I don't see how you complain when you come back from down twenty. I could see now the line when was dead Was really messy and the Giants win, but the last three wins and the last four games has all been born depressive as they went along. Like I said, the Buccaneers win this more impressive themselves when Panthers win was more demanding than the Box went and now playing the lands on Monday Night Football at home is six point underdogs. This is the biggest test of the season and if the Bears can win this one that I think the people will finally start taking them seriously. Do you think that they're a good team? After the third good team that a great team. So you need a you need to have a great author in a great defense in order to succeed in the playoffs. Now, there are obviously exceptions, but when there are exceptions boring unit of the ball is so much better than than the other ones. And is that like exactly some sort of like a Godly level so I'm thinking of like, I'm one of the most commonly like thrown out their teams is like one of the best units in history would think it's the 04 Baltimore Ravens or the 2001 Baltimore Ravens. I wasn't really around back then so I would but that reading scheme had a horrible offense with with one good running back. And yeah, like you have to have a competent quarterback with them had like a defense of two Hall of Fame and what was just one of the best units in terms of History. So the Bears don't have one of the best units in an advisor through their defense has but I will say their defense at the top of Defense in the league. The office is shown at Is that it can score when it really wants to but I can't see this offense winning us playoff games and that's the problem. Cuz when the defense fails you need to play from behind and this is a team that even though they have a big comeback Lane in the playoffs. They're not equipped to play from behind. All right, Jason, let's bring in another set of eyes on this Bears team former College All-American. Gosh, I knew him when he was just a just a a young pop and came in. You know and was boss is not really talkative and really didn't trust anyone in the media. Now, he's a member of the media six-time Pro Bowl Center 14-year NFL veteran now a bears analyst on 670 The Score radio Chicago and nbcchicago.com Olin kreutz, welcome to the sportscaster and her son. How are you Olan? I'm good. How are you guys? We're good. We're good. So I got to ask you. Okay. And this whole winning ugly with the Bears. I have a problem with people were ripping on me on Twitter. No surprise after the Bears beat the Panthers because I said listen this I saw I saw a team that is on the verge of being good. I didn't say the offense was on the verge of being good but a team There's a little things that they're they're still stupid mistakes and things like that. But all in four years, we complained that the Bears didn't couldn't close out games. Now. There's a team that's figuring out how to win and and yet no one's happy. It's winning. Ugly. What do you think? Yeah. I watch Nick Foles press conference. And he you know, he got he got emotional over being questioned them about them not being very good. And I think coach Nagy was irritated to kind of like, you know Peggy my my answer was a welcome to Chicago and you play off with a really good defense, right? So, they'll get used to it, you know, as long as you win games nothing else really does matter. I mean, obviously when you look at them from an analyst standpoint, you're wondering when they get into that wage work or if an office desk or twenty one point early or three touchdowns. Can we score 28 to 30 points which they have? I think they get the bulk. Is it put up 30 points or the phone number? To go to Indiana fell but like you said pay you and you watch that defense, they're extremely good and they got one thing that a lot of good teams and teams that have good success with the formula of the defense wins games. They create chaos with a quarterback and they speed up the offense is clogged which creates turnovers. So that defense to me on film look up to dominate not only been six weeks, but that's secondary to find the involved the defense side how good they've been playing is that secondary is playing really well also, so so, you know and thought we'd love to say there's no pictures on the scorecard. I don't care how you got that birdie. A birdie is a birdie a win is a win but we would have loved for it to be beautiful and to be you know them be a great well oiled machine, but how long can they sustain this throughout the rest of the NFL season? We're about to file really quickly here. Right? We got the Rams. We got the same and we got the Titans all in a row and I think the Vikings and Packers are coming up after that. So we're going to see if that deficient care of you kind of figured going into the year. The defense would have to carry them. They would have to create turnovers to give this offense opportunities. And also even when they scored one against who did they just play and I don't know why it's slipping my mind, but you know, it was it was a missed field-goal they missed a long they went for a long field goal and it gave the offense good field position. So those things that the this office is going to need to score points, but we've seen this formula worked before in not only for the bears but in the NFL we seen with the Baltimore Ravens the thing that worries you is dead coach Nagy. Does it seem to want to be that ball control run the ball control the clock offense play try to complement your very good defense. So we'll see that's I think birth Worries people when you watch the Bears, it's okay. We see this formula work, but we haven't seen this kind of office work with a great defense. So that's the kind of thing where we're worried about. I think with this page is my personal opinion. They can definitely compete at least in the NFC with any team that's out there right now. You mentioned the upcoming schedule for the Bears Packers and Vikings still a couple of weeks away, but early on what I have been able to take away from the start from the season. Is that the NFC North bookmarks weaker than normal City you think that this is going to be the year for the barracks and finally take advantage of a weaker pool schemes in their in their own Division and end up winning the division. Yeah. I think they're right. They're right. My problem of course is the Packers up north and they look they look like a very good formidable team, even though the Tampa Bay just took them apart, but that's what I you know, we were just talking about what Peggy was look the Bears the last two times they played the Packers. I think it's the first time is for a touchdown was after eight quarters right within the fourth quarter of the second game. So I bought a pet in his head Maggie's number the last couple of times in the Bears, you know last year to open the NFL season, they only scored 3 points and then they couldn't score up there and Green Bay either although they had a ton of Injuries going into that game. I expect you on offense. I think they're on their third or fourth tight end Cornelius Loop is the starting at right tackle a cow restarting it Right Guard. And then the problem again is that James Daniel goes out so long. I think it's going to be against the Packers, you know between the Packers and the Bears obviously the lions look all right, but I think the Bears can beat the line as long as the defense stays stays healthy. So the year they can't do it, but they're going to have to show us that they can play against the Green Bay Packers. Obviously replacing Packers, do you have a big disadvantage? No matter who is under center for the Bears at the quarterback position. Do you think that Nick Foles is going to be the foyer back up finally pushes Baird over the hump and win the playoff game just like what you did against the Bears two years ago. Well, Nick Foles, you know, I've been hoping for a little more out of life became the Bears quarterback. I think everybody started to see that the Bears problem really is they don't have a lot of explosive players on their office and they have either average to below-average offensive line right now with the way they're playing so I want to say yes, my best guess would be no, my best guess would be know. They're they're not going to be get over the hump and beat the Packers issue but to your ending part of your last question was can they win a playoff game? I think with the addition of two playoff games this year. I think they could definitely sneak into the playoffs dead. And when a game just depends on who the matchup is, right, you always have to think about when you get to the playoffs you have to think about matchups and the things that give the Chicago Bears of problem would be like the New Orleans changed. And the reason I say that is Devon offensive line that can match up with the Bears defense of line, you know to get the ball out quick Drew Brees. Does it run the ball pretty well and it took Michael Thomas who can take the top off of your defense so they can avoid a team like that get a team with a weak offense of line. Like if you go back to 2018 and you think about when they went up to Minnesota and then play back up there and if if they would have sat there starters that week the Bears would it would have played Minnesota in the first round of playoffs instead they beat them and they play the Eagles the Eagles even though they weren't really suck that year with Nick Foles the quarterback. They had a good offensive line that went up the end up winning Seventeen and sixteen. So if they didn't get a good match up getting into the playoffs, I think they could definitely can win a playoff. Yeah, I want to get into the offensive line here in a second. But back to the point about Nick Foles. Like Jason was just saying I don't know where the Bears stand Owen and yards after the catch. I don't but the lack of an explosive player. They don't have that down field threat and and it worries me that in the second half of the Season all these teams and all they have to do is look at the film and know that the Bears don't have anyone down field. There isn't anyone that's really breaking tackles for 20 yard games anything like that? And so they're going to force Nick Foles to go downfield. And and I think that that's what worries me. You know, how what if you were sitting in the that film room and you're watching at Nick Foles running the offense and the lack of any kind of explosive threats, what are you going to do? Yeah, you know it's funny you mention that Peggy because I was watching the game with a defensive coach and at the end of the game he looked at me. He said, you know the problem with the Bears is like if I formulate a game plans, they don't really scare me at all. So simple thing you just said right guys just said cornerback suck sitting a shorter and shorter the safety start creeping up and we've seen that the first two weeks off I think people came out and and they thought he would throw the ball over the field that lions in the Giant and they gave the Bears that run because they're worried about the path. Well, the bulk is decided in effect about Midway through a six course, you know what want to throw run blitzes and run stunts to be guys and see what they got and into the Falcons got injuries across their their secondary Choice working. They were showing the Bears offense down and embarrass have seen that ever since they're being guys loaded off-road run blitzes at them shut their run down and they have it be able to get behind anything. Secondaries for an explosive play the funny thing and and the funny thing you have to think about too. Is that a guy like Darnell Mooney who has got two behind a defense then the offensive line gets a little leaky. They don't have enough time. So they got to figure those things out. But if you just go across the Bears depth chart and just go guy for guy, they lost two recall and and they took James Daniels if you ask me James Daniel was was their second best football player on an offense with not a lot of talent. So now they're talented drops off even more. So where do they find these guys? I don't really know. It's not like it's not like they're out there, you know, Cordarrelle Patterson the guy I guess they could try get into some matchup. I would like to see them start Coco met at tight end. I think he just kind of breaks some of your life Tendencies and he can do both of what Demetrius Harris and Jimmy Graham do so now he said he doesn't know if you're running or passing so, you know, you know long answer. I don't know really know what time We find their guys to get explosive places. Back to our conversation in a minute. But first have you ever dealt with bunions? I have it got to the point that I couldn't even wear any shoes without having shooting pain, even at night. I couldn't even pull the covers over my foot at home so bad. It didn't matter if I was wearing slippers or boots gym shoes working out or heels for a night out. The pain was intolerable. I finally decided to do something about it. But when I heard about foot first Podiatry and they're exclusive procedure the sklar bunionectomy it has you on your feet the day after surgery. Are you kidding? Well, I had to see it to believe it and you know what they offer right surgery was easy. I am so glad I did it. I walked out of surgery in a boot no cast. No crutches walking the same day and you can be back in a gym shoe in about two weeks. When I look at my foot now, there's no visual Scar and best of all I am paying free. So ladies and guys don't walk around in pain like I did four years visit. first. Com All right. Let's look at the offensive line. You mentioned how James Daniels she was the left guard the starter out now with the PEC injury out for the season Rashad coward comes in and he has struggled down but let's not forget. He's only been playing offensive line for what two years now. He's not Big Cat Williams. He's getting tangled up in his footwork. He is he the only problem. What do you seeing as you know, fourteen years Center in the NFL? What are you seeing with this offensive line? Well, yeah this thing you mentioned overshot power. First of all, you know, the guy moves from undrafted d-tackle the right tackle and then they put him at Right Guard last year after power long injuries headlight bulb goes out then they then all of a sudden James Daniels goes down and then they say, okay, you know what we're going to try your left guards going and its first start, you know, people who say like, well, we're shot, I got blown up and I always tell people pay guys who he got blown up by matters. Now, he got voted by Derek Brown the seventh pick of the draft, right? Okay. So an undrafted get you just betting in Vegas. What's the odds in that matchup? Probably the probably favorite very broad very heavily. So, you know, the Bears offensive line overall going into the season. I thought they played average to above-average football that was a win for the Bears because they don't have a lot of resources or a lot of money spent on that offensive line, you know, some of it is dead. They gave a good draft picks for Khalil Mack. Some of it is the way to decide to build their team. So look, why is the Bears be lying so good. Well on a very good d-line they gave Robert Quinn 70 million additives. Okay, the Bears offensive line, we all know needed help so they went on and got Germain ifedi for league minimum. So now now we're not very confused why the Bears all kind is not plain great football game right now, right and it's just even when I when I used to play for the Bears for years people would ask me that question what's wrong with the Bears offensive line and and trying to be a good teammate, I wouldn't say a word but my what I wanted to say, I have you looked at the draft pick since we got here right? Have you have you looked at who we've signed? I remembered 2009 the offensive line was terrible and and I had a conversation with some of the month. We gotta we really need to improve our offense right? We're going to get get color killed here. And so what they did is around the side Julius Peppers, they put another Hall of Famer on a defense of Brian Urlacher and in the club. Discontinue the next year why is your offensive line so bad and I just keep looking at the people would ask the question that they man. I mean, all you have to do is look at draft picks and look at who we sign is free agent and you figure out why we don't play very often decided the line. Yeah, they're buying Toyota's on the offensive line and Porsches on defense. So it's a little it's a little different. Sorry about that chase of go ahead with the exception of the offensive line. Which what other unit on the entire team. Do you think needs improve the most in order for the Bears to validate their their Good Start? You know, what I what I'd like to see an improvement on is David Montgomery just or somebody. I don't know who they'll get artavis Pierce or or Cordarrelle Patterson or so. You know, what I'm getting to is when when all Chris lines does give me your whole you have to hit it right and and here's a problem with David Montgomery, even if you know, I love the way he played he's not going to break two or three tackles and go to the house. So the birth Are missing that kind of player. I'd like to see them improve their with their running game and their offensive line working together. Cuz look at here's the here's the honest truth about the Bears to be honest with you. I'm an expert on it. There's not a lot of talent there and they have to they have to get in a room somewhere and they have to admit that to themselves. So when you don't have to have a lot of talent you you have to be all in by that I mean, you have to contract your details, you have to give maximum effort on every play. You have to be better than the sum of your cock. So when you asked me where they have to approve by position-wise, what they have to do is they have to improve all eleven guys have to be a well-oiled machine artists authors really doesn't have a chance so they have to go in every time thinking this is a gang fight. It's also 11:00 working together to pull this boat on a field do everything right. For example. You cannot on 34 come across the middle and a crossroad like Miller did and then run backwards you can do that. Okay, the offensive line has to be able to recognize run flip pick em up and give their running back or Kris and only way you pick a run place up is you all work together really really? Well. What do you think it's going to take because clearly no matter how many times you win like, you said earlier like all the matters at the end of the day just wait in the Bears have done that so far with the exception of the game against the against the cold. So what do you think of Acres have to do other than judge when to finally make the fans happy because although I'm not in Chicago from what my mom and some of my friends and saying it seems like people still can't like can't just be a happy with a good start off. Well, yeah, that's just a Bears fan, right? I paid her for thirteen years and I you know, you understand that and sometimes these new guys coming from out of town like a big bows and they can understand it. But yep. Is this the way it is right in when they're going to you know, what the what the Chicago fans want to see obviously is an offense that puts up 24 to 30 points a game. Like everybody else is in the back and then if he has dominated like they have them but my guess is you're only going to get that if you get a bunch of turnovers in a bowl starts popping out, but the problem is that happened last week and the Bergen it still didn't look really good. So if you're waiting for the offense to look really good looking play some really bad defenses and still haven't put the bone in don't still have it moved the ball consistently on the field. So I think we're pretty much looking at identity wise of what this team is for the rest of the season. I love the Spurs defense. I think everybody loves us. Friends there is I don't know what you can complain about with this Bears defense. They've only given up eight touchdowns and 19 points a game. I mean, that's nine touchdowns 18 field goals. This is them Numbers are amazing. And I almost look at it. Like the first couple of games. They felt like they were in preseason mode. They they were kind of getting into shape especially Robert Quinn, but now between Quincy and Hakeem Hicks and Khalil Mack the pressure that they're getting up front allowing the guys in the back to make the plays and they're making the plays. This is like old bear football that everybody loves but I want to ask you cuz I know we only have a minute or two left. I want to ask you this Olan the penalties. I have a different. I have kind of a boxing mentality when it comes to penalties like yes, they can be stupid. And yes, the Bears are like tied for last or tied for the top with the most penalties. Whatever in the NFL they can be stupid too many men in the Huddle stupid stupid stupid. We know that Nagy isn't trying to you know, pull something over in a Bill Belichick kind of weigh. Those are just stupid penalties on defense. Well, this is how I feel like late hits roughing-the-passer. Unnecessary roughness, I know we're trying to protect the safety of the players, you know Olin sometimes those are wake-up calls that you kind of need to put in the head of an offensive player that holyshit. These guys can hit and and almost to the point where they're going to start hearing footsteps. And and it doesn't bother me as much what's happening with Kyle Fuller off. The only thing you don't want to happen is for the refs to start labeling you as one of those guys and now they start looking for it, right? But but the good thing is if the refs break down film like Thursday, we know they do they'll see that that he's not being dirt. He's actually trying to hit them with perfect fundamentals which his shoulder you guys head out of there. So hopefully the Reps Thursday that they're making a mistake and you're you're totally correct about this defense man. They are fun to watch their defensive line. You know, we all know the names Khalil Mack Hakeem Nicks and Robert Quinn, but this Mario game Words, I watch the game with the Panthers. He beat the left guard three times in a row. So they're going to win if guys like Mario Edwards are Roy robertson-harris are Brett Urban are going to win there was a guy on match up. This deal is going to be unstoppable pay going to be honest with you. So yes, you wanted to defense plan on the edge a little bit and honestly, I'd like to see a personal fall from an offensive lineman eventually at this month. They get that kind of mentality to where they're hustling down the field cleaning off the pile of giving Max effort. I definitely I am not worried about Kyle Fuller actually. I mean, he's got a very high level he's very he's smart you take advantage of he knows how good that decrease the line is. So he takes calculated chances on this shooting on Route, you know that the receiver and have a lot of time to run double move. So he took his own he knows the balls got to come out and then he just hunts the guys crossing over the middle and push very good hits on them. You know, you could say he was there a little early in that. You know the one yep. Action picked it off and went to the end zone but you could also argue that that doesn't get called very often in the NFL. So I'm hoping this a little bit of a bad luck there on the calls from the referees because they could have gone either way but this defense I don't think you worry about it. I think they just keep playing exactly the way they've been played and a guy that that needs to be mentioned besides Jalen Johnson. We played really well for a rookie. It's tashaun gipson the added him to the secondary with Eddie Jackson and those two guys wouldn't be surprised if the secondary expert guys suck at bowling or these guys who work for ESPN. I wouldn't be surprised if they say that Gibson and Jackson or the best safety combination in the league by the end of the year. Wow. Hey, I think you're right to I think they're missing a Kyle long little scruff, you know that kind of that fire on the offensive line of times. All right, we're just about out of time, but I just have one comment to say and log All in the Bears signed Manti Te'o this past week and I just gotta say that fifteen years ago you and your teammates would have had a field day and in the locker room with a man title. That's all I'm going to say. You know, I would have left alone to see some of the great state of Hawaii. I would help them out a little bit maybe a little bit on the side, but that is a very nice. I know a lot of that. I know too much of that story that I would not like to know and it's a very interesting story but glad to see that the young man has come through it and hopefully his career he gets his career back on track and NFL. Oh man. It sounds like a story over a drink. I can't wait to hear it. One day you find me like three or four drinks? Oh and thank you so much. We appreciate it. We took our were seven and one back in 2012. We know what happened missing the playoffs and Lovie Smith got fired and I think all Bears fans are hoping that it doesn't happen in that they can log. Continue to improve the rest of the season. Thank you for taking the time to join us all and thank you. Thank you guys. All righty. Thank you. I'll tell you what Olin is really becoming a very good analyst. He's got great eyes on the game great personality that it's always a joy to talk to him. Let's see Jason time for your predictions. What are you got? All right Peggy. I just I don't know when I'll be free agency is going to start but I will say that the White Sox are designed Trevor Bauer's are going to break the bank first hundred million dollar cost deal in team history to me often and not just come inside my second prediction that they are not going to hire Tony larussa. I don't know where that came from the hiring a 76 year old to manage. One of the youngest teams in baseball just sounds really counterintuitive me. My third prediction is that the bowls when the NBA draft comes I believe there's a few weeks to three weeks. They're going to draft lamelo ball. So lots of exciting name can be coming to Chicago. No, lots of lots of turnover between the Blackhawks and bowls and the White Sox. It'll be very interesting winter. You can know we're really not going to see Chicago Sports except for the Bears over the winter months. I loved it. Hey, it seems like it's been forever since we all faced the first shutdowns of our cities due to the coronavirus Pandora if you have your second not looking too beautiful, Austin, Texas, and we don't have to worry about a thing. Oh, come on. What here's my final thoughts that was back in March for all of us and Jason you sound like a whole different person you were down in the dumps. You were depressed that there was no Sports. No college basketball tournament. All the games were put on hold opening day for baseball was ruined everything now. It's seven months later and not facing what they are calling the second wave here in the Midwest and just like the squirrels and all the other animals. We too are starting to hunker down for a Long Winter. It's not going to be easy because Have to tell you something. I had a great summer. Honestly, I cannot remember the last time I truly truly enjoyed being outside whenever I could I played a ton of money. Yes. I played a ton of golf. I played a ton of golf had the best year of my life. I was down to a what was I down to a 13 handicap which was way too low for me, but let me let me just interject. Really. I remember three four times a week over the summer coming down stairs like 11:30 being like, where's where I thought it was listen. We were we were given the opportunity to be outdoors and some fashion playing golf being on an outdoor patio eating at a restaurant that had outdoor seating. It's one thing that the pandemic has done and it's made all of us grateful for what we do have. I truly appreciate the restaurant industry workers who are still hanging on by a thread. Our businesses but became really creative and worked tirelessly to give us all a place to be friends and to be social to the golf courses that changed how they did business again. I could enjoy things outside. I don't know what the next few months are going to bring but it feels an awful lot like it did a few months ago a bit helpless until as Mike Ditka said after he was fired in nineteen, ninety three this too shall pass. Hang in there everybody and we will hang with deal. Our thanks again to Olin kreutz former Chicago Bear Now Heard on wscr Radio 670 The Score and NBC Sports Chicago Bears coverage.

E. G. E. D. Yesterday what's going on when I'm talking about back inaccuracy the Komo's get really short guy that's the guy that took place we're talking about here no matter the place did you just ridiculed threw for three hundred and twenty nine yards think about that the three twenty nine in the second half and you know what he came the real Aaron on the packers now is not Rogers it is Jones and in his debut at Gerry world back in two thousand seventeen he went nineteen carries football I'm beyond shock that the packers were able to stymie the pack the cowboys and get pressure on that von it off his line of yours but at the end worth passes he destroyed my defense and if you could please put an Abe out for demarcus Lawrence the one hundred million dollar man well one tackle when you say how proud you are because even Jersey there how could they got down and they bought back this is what we know this is not congestion this is nuts every throw and he stood tall and he stood strong and he stood tough and would you believe in the second half the guy who can't throw the inaccurate DAK Prescott within one bad call of pulling off the greatest all time regular season comeback in NFL history cavalry on no no one hundred and twenty five yards remember he's a cowboy fan born and raised in El Paso went to Utah and he likes to take it out on Dallas and he likes L. who I'm talking about the NFL you can go look this up they were down thirty one two three late in the third quarter and they were on a roll and on their way to the greatest Comeback Series fourth and twenty another pont. It's thirty one seventeen and what happened what happened that throws it to where he thinks Michael Gallup is supposed to be this is the attorney he's slapping him he's head slapping plays football physical football and that's obviously beyond five yards he knocks him completely pointed this football game. GimMe this playback those to where Michael Gal was supposed to be but if we see the slow mo of what Kevin King was doing to Michael Gal this is a mugging what what did that and Robert Quinn raving about Robert Quinn he had one tackle they had no sacks they were no shows defense was basically a no show which league in Qbr but that's what was the Qbr yesterday it was terrible is that good I thought it was a little harsh actually but I'll get to that moment now for one objective points all game long the two Smith from Green Bay the guys you raved about all last week exhibit areas impressed him they were all over Dak Prescott on nearly offer this Guy Mr Fifty four at the end of the first half and he missed a chip shot at the end of the game that would have forced an onside kick and we would have gotten the route deck throws it to where he's supposed to turn out too but Kevin King has yanked his head so far inside that he can't turn outside and not only just Kevin King they get a gift field goal for Mason Crossbar who I felt was hurt in the first half on tackle on a kickoff he came back and he makes the gift field goal that was just a little too much for Dak Prescott but did he stop no here he came again and it's another touchdown pass another touchdown pass and it comes down to my ah I just need you to sleep the end result at the end and you keep talking about that guy's better than pat him hope it doesn't the cowboys need that the cowboys defense will put in real interesting if we had gotten the onside but still what you can't overcome is the Kevin King play so why couldn't Jason Garrett Challenge the Kevin Game Doc ever win this play happen and the down and distance it's first and ten at the thirty four and they just held Aaron Rodgers forced him into another bad rub it in Dallas especially at Gerry world and yesterday he goes for seven more yards but worse than that he caught seventy five yards down the theme to Amari Cooper and he throws right where Amari needs to slow and catch it because the safety still behind him coming over on the play and and you have to eat the gift field goal that you just gave them off the bad call and I'm convinced that the referees had in for Jason Garrett at that because is now they need to do away with this rule we've seen replaced I still wear it's obvious pass interference but they know skipping they never overruled brings me to my attack of a pretty good for the pack that's give them credit blogging by the hours of line I would agree with that this brings me back to my quarterback my biggest serious after a while he starts to get on your nerves on your psyche to where you just Kinda look the other way and say add just let him play on that skip we've seen it that would have been called if you were to challenge on that one the Kevin Kane play he is slapping him grabbing him twisting him it's it's the most I feel like it gave them a lot of momentum I got it that's what I was thinking in those are the three worst words in football and we're going to have a whole different story here so Amari winds up catching eleven balls for two hundred and twenty six yards in the but can I read the quote that Amari uttered after the game you're the only thing that's really on my mind is the dropped ball he's talking about that pass we saw the drop ball in the turnover it created Acre breadth the Fret Maher Bill Maher you know not Bill O. he could like Bill Maher yeah okay well they don't overpay overturn but get my point is this why is it when a seven nothing when it's fourteen nothing is seventeen hundred twenty four ages pass interference I've seen in a long time I'm not arguing but it's hard for me to believe that they're going to overturn it because I've seen blades just as egregious as I mean they're the I'm GonNa continue to talk what Dj drop that track and it'll be talking over the track playing in the background but the people that home would be able to see good things are about to happen if you try to explain this people on social media I believe the to work the two most difficult catches to make him football accept it he returns it fifteen yards they go nowhere again because they know we're all about for the last quarter and a half of the game but a it's my turn and at the end of the third quarter he had to challenge Amari catch that clearly you got two feet so so now you're out of challenges so now you can't save the Game Mario Cooper because it is still nothing nothing and the Dallas is driving and they get all the way down to Green Bay's thirty eight and Dak drops back and fires just absurd Jason Garrett got star John with the head referee and then he said Okay I'm going to throw the challenge officials looked he told them he toys because he had already wasted a challenge in the middle of the one Anthony Brown play where anything Brown clearly fouled out in the scout in Cooper if if I could just tell here it is again not only that but he runs it back forty yards so it was all time killer play because they're going to go in seven nothing the eighty three yard touchdown path any falls down well it seven enough and it's going to be seven to seven the roof is gonNA come off Jerry World people are going to go crazy the touchdown throw and he's concentrating concentrating and he loses his fate goes down this is going to be let's see from the seventeen what's the matter get fifteen yards and hitting him by letting him hit his head on the goalpost with a forty yard catch ruin and that's the difference between that and the talk to your quarterback and once he I got it because it's just right there all asked to do a slow and catch it in between the safety and he's already beaten the corner inside and sit down and you gotta I did at the fifteen and the dropped ball and it's eaten atom and now what happens whether he goes in motion then he runs a little pump and go on Alexander and it is a sweet throat and you realize that you're going to be well on you okay well he only threw for three twenty nine the second half I have no idea impossible you can't throw but you threw for three twenty nine so it's not like he let them up at Gerry world and he's owned it before but Aaron Jones owned it the defense didn't own it and yet when you look at the total the opposite of what you picked you said this is not about me you bought into the calendar in its turn I didn't ask you to so you lose it in the blind spot and that when you're running full speed one way you stop try to open your hips when the ball is coming straight on okay I catch it like this urged you realize that's the most total yards the dallas cowboys have ever had lost they broke their loss record five hundred sixty three total yards green bay had three thirty five what if one team has five sixty three and the other has three thirty five what do you think usually would happen you probably win that game or too early plays that started to dig the hole that the defense dug deeper and deeper and deeper Aaron Rodgers played okay but he didn't play great because he did I also had eleven penalties Dallas did for one hundred twenty that's a lot but of the three interceptions and you say doc is so inaccurate he deserved let's look at the next play that could have changed this game because in the next cowboy series it's second and fifteen from the seventeen and a more he's got the demon in his head about drop that you know that's the second back to back weeks we've seen this at what point in time does that realized these guys running full speed one way is very difficult for them to open the Hilton cowboys are going to be fired back off and it only went worse and worse from there would that's what happens if we don't talk about this a little later we see Travis Kelsey he drops a couple of passes early skip or he got there just a challenge it okay now to spy he blows challenge that you're gonNA save the game pronounce because one that you showed because he forced ball after they're starting to fall deeper and deeper into the hole he forced one throw the whole game to Randall cobb trying to get him as I catch the need to play great throw for thirty eight to thirty okay he had a QBR forty nine scale zero to one hundred so it's even under fifty okay so balls over my shoulder I catch it like this but if I got to open my hills am I gonNA catch like this or emigrant kitchen like that split second okay how am I gonNA turn my hands and Watkins do you for bringing that up let's go back to the first of the game now and this is a game changing play that just killed me and it killed against his ex team and it's just a badge it's a bad idea because the corner comes underneath the things off and so the the point is I'll give you bad throw where's your flat flat right down here well whatever but but he's just trying to get now you're in comeback mowed down seventeen another it but if you look at the thrill Aaron Rodgers making when he his Geronimo Alison Woody histories receivers they're the difference between hitting a guy letting him you are the one that's over the shoulder because you lose it in the blind spot because it drops over you're blind you cover drops in your eye unless you track it all the way and bear a few people do this the and you lose it you lose you Louis exactly you lose your ballot and the next thing you know like fifty now but I got a twenty yard complete shy so replace easy he got both hands on all edges slop because if he throws him wider Darnell savage is gonNA blast no currently wasn't an interception throw so through one bad pass and he threw for three twenty nine in the second half and you're saying he's a boss no that is that he's alive kid scary how do you feel for three twenty nine by the way the packers are really good on defense they're really good we know they were a free okay that's what you do now anytime the guy drops did he catch it would they call those other three that's all that matters all I'm saying and gift what's overrated plays in all the football are one two yard touchdown passes or one or two yard touchdown the most overrated stat. QBR But anyway but skip do remember that Kenny worth I'm GONNA ask okay well how many turnovers the team had to have five sixty three well because that direct reflection of WHO's going to win and lose the game they had three turnovers two zero for Green Dot oh three and that he comes right back out on the first play blue throw the pig catechin going the other way we talked about that yeah that's what you have like select you to improve for three touchdowns and they ramp almost two hundred dollars for one hundred and sixty yards my quarterback gets the same defense knew for three twenty nine in the second half I got your early in Dallas Green Bay led by as many as twenty four points in the third quarter playing from behind the entire Game Zeki Elliott was held in check with only sixty two rushing I don't I guess you're talking about plays that did not count no so Dr One ball that should have been picked the one to a more definitely was an perception throw and the one to Kevin King death terrible throat hitting him right there is just terrible but hey they let him get off the hook he threw a terrible picking in king undercut play Mark Kevin King and he dropped that one yeah would that a good about that you remember yeah well maybe catch it back for one sixty and fourth quarter with three Zero Peaks Deacon Dak Oh really are just little photo skilled at the most and he never got those demons out of the rest of the ball game now in this situation right here and I've been there skipped you all you look at all the way in the process of looking at all the the one that should have been talking about procedure that hit Cobb and the yeah okay was it no no no I didn't see him yes when you had an opportunity dax fault interception yes it was his it was not the the DB's mugging it's like a assault and battery he jerked his head down ATV called her to drop it was if you get to that's up flat out drop skew and Dak is not trying to throw it Darnell savvy bills trying to throw it where a Marcon candles so why would you walk in off the field walking up the field so we knew there were flags exactly because he didn't know didn't keep okay what about the phone what took complete blame fat you're the only one who thinks that's what good team definite teammates you'd have got to make that play yeah abso- play was an aborted play from the store do Nova Daniels Airflow Dad knew that they knew that he would like to get a fly and it's like a free issue question talking about I said even if he challenged given the history of the past appears to what you said that was pass interference and that would have been overturned you already said wouldn't yes it was you said it would have been overturned overturned dad say it would be overturned tape I'm thinking we'll get it so jenny I do I'm sitting right here I just heard him say you pass interference you all I'm saying is Marie my new agreed it was passed in moutier talking about you're looking only if you let me already said that'd be right into the subway hickel go no okay but he hits him right in the hands county will he called it a drop everybody called you had an opportunity to crowds going bonkers cloud electric the on the roof of the at and T. and what does that do after they forced to Pakistan you know why you and come back most kids yeah because he put you there turnovers yes no he didn't put the turnover demari wouldn't about inputting swing out on this book you want you want it both ways I don't wanNA bulk bag throws a two yard the receiver goals eighty yards you say through an eighty yard touchdown but when he throws it into the session you find every way okay no I told you deserve one near three resumes directly to your door or now my listeners can get started with the hymns complete haircut for just five dollars today right now while supplies last and subject today doctor's approval see website for full details and safety information this could cost hundreds if you went to the doctor or a pharmacy somewhere else go to forums dot com slash undisputed that's F.

supplements their prescription solutions backed by science four hymns connects you to real doctors online it's completely fifty yards three touchdowns and one pick in the win New England is the only remaining undefeated team in the AFC right now so shannon are the patron uh of Tom Brady and New England started slow in Washington trailing the entire first quarter it's clearly the best team in the NFL no but I understand why they would be they're gonNA be number one in the power rankings kept their undefeated and rightfully so but if you look at who they let's be real now I mean the Berlanti the team the offense is all in the bottom the bottom six and the NFL Washington the giants the cowboys couldn't predict deck they got backups at left tackle and right tackle and you got to Hilarious Pass rushers and my quarterback just stood in there the whole second half if you want me to explain you're down thirty one three that's how you do it because you and even though they were down thirty one three I thought in certain situations the packers were too aggressive every at some point you have to give and give him some credit to guts that he showed us three twenty nine that you can't fight three twenty nine could half what the hell did he do in the first half I just gave you the two plays one one should have been down to the fifteen one should have been a touchdown that changes the whole why in their tails off just Gillian man across the board just saying you can't have this case why did he know why because they knew bestseller math I just showed you the two plays that would made it seven to nothing and made even fourteen to nothing hand disputed listeners it's in the book okay when it was seven nothing it was fourteen nothing seventeen nothing twenty four nothing thirty one wherewithal that before he got thirty one three got to pass rushers you cannot block how do you explain that I want you you're the hall of Famer explain it to me because you know if you give me an obvious got guys hanging over me eighty yards and it takes them four minutes to get a touchdown so be it but you can't give usually all I hear is oh they just played soft they played in the second half Green Bay was Allen who at Barclay I don't you don't even need to be able to play better than what they got up in Washington this awful and we'll talk about this a little later and Miami Buffalo is the highest rate of offense and their twenty three so we don't what what was your line an Amoeba oneself better than Josh would you get a big nothing cheap nothing deep I thought the sixty yard touchdown the Michael Gallon sixty yard touchdown if they need to go they gotta go team that played Washington this year the quarterback has thrown for at least three touchdowns xl Dan Jones who the rookie walk it to him had three the cost of the job I read the headline Brady Bounce back against Washington skill every they're gonNA play their brain their style of football no matter who they play they do what they do stop us okay you stop it to run game today astor it'll quarterback for the disaster stop your quarterback whether disaster that's the worst thing you've ever sat on this point in time you gotTa stop took so much so if you don't mind me asking skill why didn't he grew up a six hundred and fifty yards see proof at three twenty nine in the how good they are given I'm trying to figure out what other teams that could play these teams and not be undefeated the only one give Buffalo Mitchell trubisky hair three everybody has three now they're not good the defense after our okay Brady we don't need to go for three bill okay you play in coverage you dropping everybody back Sunday Michelle Birkhead I'm GonNa need you to run the ball adjudged at Kim joy that based on that but the thing I can I can always say about you can hang your hat on the Patriots they never played down the competition they're good but I don't know if they're good basket because we I'm looking at defense that's thirty seconds thirty first thirty twenty three twenty eight I him they could not run the football lick and there were three dropped passes and he's throwing two tight ends named Izzo and Lacoste Buffalo New England going to buffalo and winning that game that's worth two points but the rest of that Nah they get nothing for me scale so here's the great irony of what I saw yesterday I watched all of the Patriot game and I thought I was in the first half Tom Brady looked awful they could not protect Momentum did happen you did it happen his Dak play safety Nelson now you bring it well what was my first point that I made to my defense was a disease he just looks so big in the proverbial piano on like a possession receiver and Radi missed him once early and then later Brady had pass in the red zone where he he he was under duress he was running for his life most of the first half and when he runs for his life it looks uglier because I think Buffalo's defense is legit buckle defense is legit but their office skip leaves a lot to be desired so I'm GonNa give them credit but one win doc guys busted me in the mouth he's got dairy Smith Trash talking him after that interview shows you what a dump playing well can you be P up yesterday throwing for three hundred and forty eight yard that's pretty good I mean that sounds like a typical brady game in the final scores thirty three to seven sounds like a pretty typical Patriot game after one quarter they were down seven to six thanks to that kid that undrafted kids Stephen Smells so yesterday Tom Brady was thorn nine targets to element and nine targets to James White that's what you got you're throwing it to a little wide receiver and a little tiny running Down from gronk down to Izzo Slash Lacoste in Josh Gordon looks now like a tied into me seriously I think he's Ain't white sprinkled here too that's what they do but skip their undefeated rightfully so but it's hard for me to really assess in all the smoke cleared the Patriots are unbeaten and have a one game lead over your cheat zip so they got a leg up and I looked down the schedule and I say I don't know so now they gotta come right back on Thursday night at home against Danny dimes who who got a little bit exposure he looked like a rookie yes yes against in affiliates favorite they're going to be favored by one maybe to remember what Phillies Achilles heel is their secondary not very good and Brady the redskins were starting to quit on Jay grew new no longer has his job and Sony went for ninety one total so they had a semblance of a run WPRO screens he'll throw a option rows to the running back he tries to get the back yeah the the running back on the line backer where he'll swim up the rail so he does a lot of that on their schedule and tell me a game that's just big L. They're going to be favored him every game maybe the Philly game probably be a pick em in tough game at Philly but but still could they win it phillies you could absolutely could could they go sixteen or no with a flawed football team sure they could defense is I in yards allowed and first points allowed by like a like a world they've allowed seven a game the bears have allowed still win thirty three to seven because Sony Michelle started to get on track yep second half he got out of the doghouse into the daylight and he was running to some daylight and not a game so there are a touchdown ahead of the bear yes but to your point they have played nobody no seriously they have played nobody and they have they have what's ahead you can't always predict the future but you can game plan for it generations of families and businesses have harnessed the power of Pacific to help them fims got loose tackles yeah you broke up the sideline that's when Ernestine knocked on my door because she was watching the other room she said what are they doing really reach their unique goals whether you need to save enough money to meet your needs and sure your family is protected or make sure you don't run out of money Pacific life has no but but they're off to such a good start in their schedule looks at this moment to be easy enough I don't know it's going to come down to again variety of financial solutions that can help Pacific life counts more than half of the one hundred largest US companies as its clients and has doc right and would you throw in three to Sony Michelle any through three two of through one brand new boulder but that a lot of their offense flows through the running back ahead because they don't have that type of receiver not with Antonio Brown I think that's what Tom got so upset he liked for the first loan to help me a guy all the top a bit is that Tom Brady because he's about to get crushed skip yep and you seeing this idea Tom Tom does not wanna get hit skill who would got a one game lead over Patrick mahomes he gets a chance for revenge on December the eighth at Foxboro on another I think that Sunday's game are you ready named one of the world's most ethical companies by the ethics fear institute protecting what matters most to people for one hundred fifty years and counting that's the power of Pacific ask a financial professional about how Pacific Life can help you game plan for your future or visit W I don't believe he had the arsenal he's not bringing bringing wrong and if they didn't know Chris Hogan Chris Hogan with unbelievable in that Super Bowl game is preseason game against the warriors in just one half of play eighty dropped twenty two points and grabbed ten rebounds Lebron had fifteen points with a assist so shepherd it's not an anomaly where he threw that many he threw fifteen sixty pass to the running back no he normally throws a lot of passes through the running back they're not trying to throw the ball over the notice we don't realize people don't realize just how dominant this young man is these bended Anthony Davis and not doing he didn't surprise me now I'm surprised how he w DOT Pacific Life Dot Com so we got our first look at Lebron Anthony Davis on Saturday night in there go in there as he did to him in the Super Bowl new for playoff record five oh five I know that route two years ago but they're no better now in fact they're worse than the second than they were own and I think the thing of a good team is that when you play no one you make them they still looked like dominating what you do you make at the half Lebron James numbers give I believe is rebound will be down because you have ad jr avail into whiteout low. I know but I'm ready to yeah but I'm saying he's starting to play I mean usually you see a lot especially the first half you saw a lot of that so guess what Tom Brady wound got a weapon I'm going to read a Little Randy Moss all the top yeah these guys get everything fifteen in underneath who so this year but skip Anthony Davis that pick and roll good luck stopping that pick and roll good good love stopping that twenty to ten at the half Lebron with fifteen eight and three any three points and twenty six points per game he will average double digit assists per game and he'll probably have about five to six rebounds his well you like the Patriots against the giants I this last game this is not going in there you should read Cerny life the twenty twenty four twenty five ten and six nothing that's realistic ad ad might be somewhere around twenty eight twelve twenty wait so do I think they have a shot sixteen and all I know it's almost impossible but yeah I give him a shot do I think they're the best team in football I do yes I do because I long shot aw forty right that one pass in the red zone I was just like Tom what are you doing just throws it up for grabs I think he's trying to throw it away and it's just like how his most difficult degree of difficulty in the West in the West and you say ooh spatial so this is what I say Okay Brian James Soon Hand Abroad Mesh but I guess it goes back did they were friends before they got together I'm sure they talked a lot of basketball I don't know how much basketball they played in the off season before rtd to be determined now with that being said NBA notice they'll Davis art at this game we're GONNA do a lot of mix and match the only two things that we know one hundred percent certain Anthony Davis Lebron James will be in the starting lineup the other three watch said you're watching Tom Brady's she said yeah I'm kind of into it I said well not much the big with the final score was thirty three to seven and at the end of the night comes up out of the West with the title Yep I'll know why we have ever have ever have to have another discussion about okay either go but that's it it's over to come but he wrote to the rim he cleaned up everything Lebron James Lebron James skipped will ever somewhere between I believe you'll average somewhere between nineteen seventy six it was cream abdul-jabbar's Lakers I was covering magic obviously wasn't there yet so I go back a ways with the NBA and oh you done now it's my turn yes so I have been covering the National Basketball Association's since the first year I was with the Los Angeles Times Vikings the Vikings are really good on defense right yes okay okay so here we go even I could be somebody I could get ah the Patriots Lee being interesting switch wouldn't they moved over me like let's here's your to your point I do nobody cared about a preseason game so I'm going to go not that far out on a limb to say what happened the other night Saturday night in the first half all I can tell you is the history of the NBA nobody you couldn't put any body on notice in any preseason game because nobody noticed preseason Games was the most over height overemphasized overreacted to first half of a first preseason games okay we have no more demarcus cousins God bless him I hope he earns quickly and obviously there's no clay God bless him I hope he returns quickly so they're down three the big players that they had last year which forced them to start on Saturday night Alfonso mckinney Omari Spelman and the new edition Dangelo Russ Aziz in Games they are now going to China play the nets for a couple and they're playing the other four all against Golden State all four so it's home and home two and two against in the history of this league in an ain't even close because I love the spurs but I look at the box and I kind of skim through it I didn't watch the spurs the other night they were on opposite Dole the Angel Russell shot two of nine over four from three and not much better with Amari spelman because he was two of nine to six from three the Lakers or whatever but again I don't care that much about any of these games this was the first of six Laker ah give it the preseason so I want to get too excited I wanNA put anything in front of a side yeah I liked what I saw you like what you said what we saw from Anthony Davis is what Anthony Davis has been doing since he got into the League but played Minnesota plan in New Orleans give some to it instead curry was one of five from three from three everybody was bad for three on the new builds Anthony Davis took three three pointers and missed be your MVP will be your champion Ab eight he'll be MVP Lebron they'll be mvp of the finals you like that whatever you say you told me okay well I'm just saying that there are a lot of all kinds of interceptions some deserves I don't know but somebody else I'm talking about three twenty nine in the second half against a really good defense you can get a cab I don't care it's your day you told me you say Lebron James is going to his most degree how's it going to cost you projected triple double that takes too much energy it takes too much damage only westbrook has that kind of energy but other news we're Kawai and Paul George and all this the nuggets endanger their driving distract yep it'll be over thirteen mvp what do you think it'll be close to you got the two guys two guys will be fighting it out make your voice the where those came from that that would scare me if I'm Lebron just don't want him shoot we go he'll be just fine we'll see about that but speaking of shooting threes what just blew would have to play playing good ball in jail milestone the gland without salt in Frank Vogel says look that was the lineup that we as you were big he's bigger than me he might be work yes at that point we go to twenty five to twenty twenty to thirty five to forty the guy who happens if you have two guys on one team they just can't legal have a broad got little eighty eight so now you're picking you had to be impressed with what you saw I just tell the truth go isn't my dad you can say you know that you liked I liked it okay okay old state which is the weirdest preseason schedule I think we're doing them a favor not moving that do new building nobody data they don't you think they're gonNA come out to see to get somebody he was trouble I'm just GonNa put thank you don't WanNa take that home easy Jennifer many haning aw they really good Dan how impressive didn't those Lakers was your own folks who don't appreciate the game you will come out and say the Pelicans Phibro May d so what do we have right now with the Golden State Warriors we obviously have no more K. D. me away was steph curry had decided he was going to take the first shot at the new building at chase and can we see what he chose to do he shows to shoot from like thirty five feet here it is and it was three feet Georgia now again as much respect as I have for Steph of what I said highest degree of difficulty in Lebron's career because he used to have cakewalks through the east in last year the West wasn't as balanced as it as it is now because everybody switched sides and all the sudden you got huge balance and you got utah making a new push with new acquisition you got aims you gotTa play these people multiple times and again this may be the easiest game they'll have all year was the first night and the chase center against what's left of Golden State you've opened Pandora's box of demons now now everybody's thinking you just you just air balled the first one now how can we follow that up and then nobody could they had played at New Orleans and lost it was like our first day in Houston of Super Bowl Wing and Lebron uttered the infamous quote we are top heavy as plus going to James Harden and all of a sudden yeah we'll see about that cigarette everybody does John Murray back in San Antonio all the sudden there's just no easy I got it on those do so what do I see from the Laker roster it's he's he's off to the race five of eight that sixty three percent last year he was a career low sixty seven percent so here we go the new rims converted from the one that Lebron used to have back in his Cleveland days remember the from its quote when we're at the Super Bowl in two thousand sixteen Houston and it was that night that and I almost texted you on Saturday night but I didn't want to bother you because you're deep in your hand at that point but I just wondered was the bad words and then and now they're actually bottom heavy because this roster I gotta tell you right now he yeah that's I knew Marto Okay Oh really handling everyone on as professionally wow look at that one say that again I'm handling heap everyone as professionally chasing after they will background indoors box flung open that was the only thing that I could find really were bad as a team it's pretty impressive going deep goes down all the way down to Alice Caruso I think he's good so they've got real depth here you know what I mean Yup just took it over but it was a stretch right there in the first avenue life Bam Bam Bam Bam he was something nine of sixteen going to be a parade today and I mean seriously they should just go ahead three were three big trended number one in the US Saturday night it took over from college football now the first half I know they all just played a hat does he does it so it's over right just amount of she say five percent you think so seventy five cases on seventy five I'll say ten in cases I got it ten Lebron James the three still for steph curry shoot as many threes from bars he wants to Well I am worried about Lebron from the free throw line the property for the Prequel left last year sixty seven zero five five now you're GONNA lose ten motto fifty six we got five cases on fifty six points to doesn't even makes professionally every way we be some guy the Queen Cook didn't play Jay Dudley been play cow Kouzmines nursing ankle injury got it I got it so they did eighteen of thirty from the free throw line that's sixty three per that won't cut it we better than there are we going to be that all year what's GonNa Cabbage and we said if I bitch bitch we do not do all that trash talking point 'cause you know that's what you expect us to do but we're going to be professional witnesses we'll beat you move onto the next city we're GONNA be like ringling brothers you you always trying to start some dissenter it's not going to be then I give you this they look good for the first half of the first exhibition boy de la Gabe yeah the city and the best part circus will be the post game interviews when Lebron saying you ought he was better you you you always Ross quotes were he had butterflies this is nervous for this is within the next year today what happened with Lebron last year about this Tyler Murray and cliff Kingsbury got there first. NFL Win in a game that came down to the wire against the Bengals in Cincinnati cuyler had just under one hundred yards rushing along with a touchdown in two hundred fifty three yards through the air the rookie QB also led the cardinals on a two minute drive that resulted in the game winning field goal as time expired Fox analyst Michael Vick joins us now good to have you Michael how much improvement did you see yesterday in Cuyler if you've ever get trump card trae we'll be going to do Bush head pack up go to the next city circuit got hurt got her feeling kind of ended right here well it missed the playoffs they were twenty and fourteen when he pulled his groin and they were the plays that needs to be made

And I can't have it on the air. I will just delete it. And I won't play that part of it. His name is Josh Mukuba. He's an unbelievable job as the host of the Josh Mukuba show. He's got WGN movies for America. He basically is all over the collider sports network. You can check him out on Twitter at Josh Mukuba. And there's a very strong likelihood he is going to be the next host of jeopardy, or at least we're trying to make that happen. Josh it's Ross thanks so much for coming on the show man do well. Let an intro that. That's fantastic. Thank you. Yeah. Dude. I this is great listen, I've been a big fan of yours for a long time. So come on your show is it's a real treat. Okay. So Josh lives out in LA and provide content does all kinds of things comedy movies. The whole deal. Right. Yeah. But I met him. When now you are your Penn State class of what so, you know, in classic Penn State for my took me nine semesters so four and a half years. So I graduated winter of two thousand four so okay. What did you guys? I went to high school to upper Saint Clair in western PA. And when did you graduate two thousand? Okay. So that's the easiest way. Okay. So I know Josh or that Josh because one of my best friends from high school went to Penn State and was in the fraternity essay, and I used to go to Penn State's often for lotteries ins, but one because I had unbelievable time every time. I would go there and Josh's older brother was really good friends with my buddy Dave in the fraternity. And I remember even when I would go there to visit when you were first a freshman and even like the the sophomore year. I remember Dave being like, Mukuka brothers awesome. He's going to hang out with us. So I just remember hanging out with you, even though you were like, I mean, you weren't even shaving little like eight nine years old nineteen years old, we hung out. A couple of times at Penn State. What what if anything you remember about those, and you can say, whatever like I say if it's too bad. I won't use it. But we can tell you what do you remember from my my Penn State visits end or our interaction. We'll we'll sit at. So you're good, buddy. Dave who is who is in the house as soon as college football season was over he'd come bust, and he's like it's off season Tucker's coming I was like, yes, let's do it. And this is when you were back at your plane, wait now, listen on Instagram, you show, a lot of food and press boxes, and but you are spelt version of your of your college self which you to have a lot of weight to push people around. I get it. And I you know, when you meet a color football player, even a guy that's going into the pros because you even came when you when you first graduated got drafted by the Redskins, right? I signed with the Redskins. Yeah. I remember coming. I came in. Well, I came a couple of times actually because I can I came once. Like right after my season. 'cause I there for the for the tuck rule game. So I remember that. And then I came again in the spring for blue white because I remember people being like, hey, I saw you guys just signed Jeremiah Trotter. And Alvis is like, dude, I'm I'm hammered trying to meet girls. I don't care. Great. Hundred percent. Yeah. There was an you also came up for Saint Patrick's Day weekend to which to this day make one of my favorite memories ever. Because one of. Oh, you know, what that might have been? You know, what that's what it wasn't blue white. It was Saint Patrick's Day because that's what agency would have been a yellow my gosh that Saint Patrick's Day weekend. One. Is that is that when we put Jimmy's hand in the warm water. Yup. Yup. So I'll let you playing that story. I'll do that story. Okay. So there was there was a young man in our fraternity that was notorious for peeing the bed after after drinking too many beers. And we want it, and he always passed out wherever like, we were he would fall asleep. Now. Listen, I am victim to this as well. I like to fall asleep in random places, I'm just tired guy. And so we were upstairs on the third floor of the house, and then we're all partying in this one room and he fell asleep. And we all were like, let's see if it actually works. If you put your hand in warm water, see if the guy will himself. So I mean in the fullest level of maturity, we do it and nothing happens. Nothing happens. We just kinda started partying and then all of a sudden out of nowhere. It some girls. Screens. Ever seen more people cheering? It was like the Steelers like seeing Tonio homes just caught that pass in the end zone against the cardinals. Everybody went wild. It was incredible. It was. Just sitting there on a chair, and we're all singing like Elton John tiny dancer in the room was code like the hot boxer something the p box the penalty box. Yeah. He had the p box, and we're singing what it was. I I remember thinking in that moment. This is happy as I've ever been because it was just like, you know, I just finished like my rookie year in the NFL. I had some money. Like, my dream come true there. I met my buddies college campus. You know, I'm hammered. We're up in some room singing tiny dancers. And then this kid who we have his hand and more and more pass on the chair. He just starts, and you can see it all over his jeans. Pants. This. This is this is what happens like, this is what heavy is supposed to be. I hit my peak. It can't get any better for me. And I think everybody that was like one of those good game. We like shook hands afterwards. As like, we all exited the box, and then we did our job. We did. We did what we were supposed to do. And it was. Before we move onto why you're on the show as well as. A little bit more about your background and your your football background. What anything else you remember from civic? Obviously, I remember that story anything else. Okay. So there was always I for the for the listeners, whatever that don't know me, my nickname on collider. And a lot of things is the wild, man. Right. So it just trying to escalate the situation as as often as humanly possible. And there was this part of e where there was a beer pong table. And that's where everybody kind of hung out collected before we would go out or the party would go and whatever. And I thought that I was like listen Ross. You can't beat that. Good. Like, I guarantee you I can get by you Gimmie three downs and football. And I guarantee one on one I'll be able to touch that wall behind you. And you're like, all right. Sounds like a plan. So we'd we'd been planning a couple of games of beer pong, the beer pong table gets moved and everybody is just cheering about it. Right. You didn't even put down your beer in three downs. And I didn't get a yard like. Didn't you like right handed pushing me it legitimately? Look like, I was I was a thirteen year old boy going against at the at the NFL combine just running you tossing me and like bounce back up. Like, this is my time. This is my time people like smack in my head like it was a helmet second town third-down nothing. Then people just started booing me. And you just giggling the whole time that was that's what I like to say. That's what I like to say. Remember, I kept my beer in my left hand. Because really all it is all you really need is one long aren't like one arm and your yuppie, and I would just I would just jumps at you. And put my right hand right in your chest and grab your shirt. And then you were done. You know what I mean is done. Listen, I was not a football didn't play football. But I mean, I did swim and play golf, so I have some athletic. But you know, the the yards gained in that fraternity were zero to negative lower. That is a great great story that one I mean, I I remember both of those stories. But that that's fantastic. Okay. So you went out to Hollywood, what did York then you went to Hollywood, you got all these different gigs, including the collider sports network, which is at podcast one. And you had me come on your show collider sports. So for people that might not be familiar. Tell them about collider sports. Okay. So collider is a large multimedia brand I started at collider a few years ago or flagship show on. So there's collider video is collider sports. There's cluttered quick, which has a lot of short form content. Interviews that kind of stuff. So we have we have a multiple multiple brands. And so when I started three years ago, I was basically like their TV experts. So I talked a lot about and none of us are perfect critics. There are some like serious critics in the office, and they run a certain part because collider has a very successful website that deals mostly entertainment news. So we're kind of like we're part of us are really big in the nerd world. So we go to comic cons and all that kind of stuff. We have a big trivia game show that we do as well called the movie via showdown. And so I started there a few years ago is that would jump on movie, talk and all these different things. And then. What's collider sports started? They brought me on. 'cause I mean, I all I do is kind of watch sports and the first time I caught up with you is when you were guest hosting on Dan, Patrick, not kinda yellow in my life was like, you don't know him. I was like I do. I know he's the best. And so. Collider sports kind of jumped off, and it was a natural transition because when you get a bunch of people in the room talking about movies, the other thing, they always wanna talk about sports. It's there's two things that guys and whoever else wants to talk about it's movies, and sports and movies, TV and sports. So it was like a natural transition, and it's been a blast man. The shows are going really, well, we're live on Mondays. And we're starting to kind of branch out and do some more live shows during the week. We've had some awesome guests we'd Suzy Shuster on last week. Holly Saunders is coming up in a couple of weeks and Taylor shoddy from the NFL network comes on a lot and a lot of people from now the NFL's over. Unfortunately, we have a decent money MDA talk, especially in LA because people are diehard Lakers. People. But for me, I mean, you know, I grew up in Pittsburgh. So everything is either you know, Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins or for the most part, Pittsburgh Pirates. Although we really haven't been any kind of contenders. And sid bream slid into home in nineteen Ninety-one and broke my heart. So yeah. I love. Here's here's a question for you. I never asked you this. So do you care more about the Steelers or Penn State? Oh steelers. Yeah. See here's the not not low. But that was like not close yet. The problem for me is that. So I grew up in a pit household rates. My mom and dad both graduated from Pitt and the pit has a huge rivalry of Penn State. Whereas Penn State had never really thought of pit as a rival and people from Pitt don't understand that. And people from Penn State don't understand why people from Pitt have such a hatred for Penn State. So I grew up in a house where we weren't allowed to cheer for Penn State. We didn't watch Penn State games, you know. And then my brother ends up going to Penn State and becomes this diehard Penn State football fan, and he's a couple years older than me. So I would go to visit and be like this place is perfect. Penn State's perfect. This is where I wanna go much chagrin of both of my parents who then had to become sort of Penn State parents because they were sending money to the school for their children to go there. And so, you know, like quick story when I was ten years old. My aunt who. And the crazy thing is the rest of my family all went to Penn State. So aunts and uncles on both sides all went to Penn State, all my. Cousins on my mom's side, eight of us went to Penn State. So it's a Penn State family, and my parents are this loan bastion of pit fans. And so when I was ten years old, I had a birthday party. My aunt got me this long sleeve this beautiful long-sleeve Penn State shirt, and I wanted to wear it to school on Monday so wake up, and I can't find the shirt, and like mom where is this Penn State, and I wanna wear to school. She's like, oh my God. You're silly responsible. You lost your Penn State shirt five years later. She told me she returned. She took it back to the mall and returned it. So I wouldn't wear a Penn State you're at school. So I was I was born and raised on Pitt football Pitt basketball and then Sunday's in the houses religion, you make pasta sauce, and you watch the Steelers. And so my uncle and my grandfather had Steelers season tickets since the late sixties, you know, they've been to all the Super Bowls seventy Super Bowls the ones we've won the ones we've lost. I feel like when the Steelers lose the Super Bowl some kind of family tragedy happens like when we lost the Cowboys in ninety five my grandfather died three days later, you can relate it all back in a weird. Like Russell Crowe from A Beautiful Mind pin board of Steelers losses and Mukuka family tragedy. It's it's not funny. But it's actually kind of. All right. So here's here's my question. You know? And I said this before I really believe that it's either the Steelers or the Packers that have the highest density of fans of that team in that area. In other words, like I'm from closer to Philadelphia shirt and almost like ninety percent of the people in Philadelphia are eagles fans. There is like five percent that are Cowboys fans or fibers that might be like Steelers or whatever right there. There are like a. I don't think I've ever met anybody from Pittsburgh. That's not as healers fan like in all sincerity. Do you know anybody from Pittsburgh? That's not a Steelers fan went down. There was there was one girl in my high school whose dad was in Texas, and she liked the Troy Aikman was cute. But I don't think she actually cared about Dallas cowboy football. You know what I mean? I mean, they still still cheered for the Steelers. It's here's the thing. I think the difference between maybe like a city like Philadelphia and some other cities around this country is Pittsburgh per se. Maybe it's turning into that a little bit. But it's not really a destination city, right? It's a beautiful city. It's a great place to be from. It's a great place to visit. But people don't actively search out and say man, I want to go and live in Pittsburgh. So the people that live in Pittsburgh, protect that city. Like Indiana Jones, protecting the idol supposed to be in a museum. So you you you get off the plane that you get off the plane in Pittsburgh. I'm sure you've seen it Ross. Is there you go down the escalator? There's two. Statue's? There's William Penn the general, and there is Franko Harris. And that's it like there was the guy that created Pennsylvania and the guy that made the immaculate reception. So you have this this, you know, like, my brother, and I both live in California now, but all of my family on my dad's side, most if not all of my family on my mom's side are all still in Pittsburgh, die hard Steelers fans. Couple couple years like the last couple of years the Steelers have played on Christmas day. So we played that ravens game. And we're an Antonio Brown. Reach the ball across the end zone. We made into the playoffs that wasn't Christmas day. You have like seventy mccoo goes in a bar that my uncles. My uncle owns for Christmas. I mean, going insane. My wife had never seen anything like it. I mean, there's there's nothing quite like the Steelers fandom the tailgates that whole kind of thing. It's like you're born and raised into this thing. And there is no other option. You can't wake up one day. Like, you know, what I think I'm gonna be alliance fan that doesn't happen in Pittsburgh. You are that's. That's Steeler football. And that's it by the way. I broadcast that game for Westwood One. The really, yeah. And it was it was perfect for me because I live in Harrisburg now. So I was able to be home for Christmas Eve wake up Christmas morning open the gifts with my girls and do that. And then I just drove down to Pittsburgh and did the game. And then drove back. It was an unbelievable game rivalries. Amaze anything, I think. People don't realize Pittsburgh's awesome. Like awesome city that I think like the name of it. And you think steel city, I think people have a much different connotation of Pittsburgh. I think Pittsburgh. I think people think Pittsburgh is like buffalo, and Cleveland, and maybe like Detroit, and it's not it's actually it's it's actually like a lot more. I guess modern either under the right word you describe it. But it's not like you when I went to Penn State, and I told people are some Pittsburgh that we're maybe from New Jersey, or because you know, Penn State has other like, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia or that part of the east coast of jersey, Long Island, whatever, and I would tell them from Pittsburgh like does your dad work in a steel mill. I'm like a steel mill we haven't had steel mills since the late sixties early seventies. When they tore them all down. It's not the movie all the right moves with Tom Cruise. It's it's not that anymore. But you're right. It does have that connotation of dislike still this crazy working class hardcore blue collar city where you know, Carnegie Mellon is now a technology hub. Amazon was supposed to bring one of their offices to to Pittsburgh. I mean, the city gone through two major Renaissance's it's now as like this big foodie scene. It's pretty amazing city. It really is. It really is. So I've talked to have you ever met damasec. Dave damasec. Oh, yeah. Bunstine sees the best. Okay. I was gonna say 'cause you guys remind me of each other the background the community background the films all that stuff. I've talked to him about this. And this is the last thing I'll bring up with you. But it's gotta be weird for an organization that's been in so many Super Bowls that has won so many that for the last. I don't know eight years, however, many years you've had certainly the last like five or six you've had the best wide receiver in the NFL. The best running back in the NFL on top five quarterback in the NFL. A top-five old line. NFL and some good defensive players defensive obviously been up and down. But they've got Cam Hayward. And you know, they've got some food. Oh. The phrase is it that you guys can't even get back to the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, the patriots pseudo not have nearly as many good players are able to not only get to Super Bowl every year, but win it a lot of times. I mean if I were Steelers fan, I would hate the patriots. When I would look back on the last seven or eight years as like the most disappointing stretch of Steeler football that I can ever remember. It's. I wake up in the middle of the night. Like looking at the ceiling thinking about the missed opportunity that is the last seven to eight years. I mean since the Super Bowl against Green Bay when shard mendenhall fumbled on the that was the winning drive. We were driving all over the Packers that day. Ben Rothlisberger throws three or four picks. But since that fumble you can look at that fumble as like are Russ. The Steelers have lost the Tim tebow in the playoffs. Think of media. We we lost the Tim tebow in the playoffs every time it it seemed like we were that FC championship game against the patriots of years back when Chris HOGAN had like the greatest game of anybody's career. And we're just like what we've probably shouldn't cover Chris HOGAN, they won't keep throwing three touchdowns. They blow us out in the AFC championship game. I mean, I don't I don't know if you can boil it down to coaching, I think, that's the easy scapegoat. But it seemed like every time we played the patriots. Or every time we had a moment where this was definitely going to be our chance to get back to the Super Bowl. Mike Tomlin and the coaching staff did not put a game plan in that was right there or levian bell has a groin injury. Or Ben just has a terrible game. Or it just like the team didn't show up when it needed to. And you're right. I mean, there is we had the best weapons on the field of any team in the NFL. And we just couldn't get it done. It's on mean. There aren't very many interviews that start with a guy p and his pants with his hand in warm water and finish with Steelers disappointment. But we got it done. Josh mccoo. Check him out on Twitter. It's M A UC Joe. And by the way, Mukuba, and then CD you Jay, he's got all kinds of terrific stuff. If you follow him on Twitter, you'll see when he posts it, and you'll be able to follow more of them hilarious guy. He even though he was a freshman. I was in the NFL. He wanted to rush against me in a crowded fraternity and embarrass himself in front of girls, which I enjoyed quite a bit. So if nothing else he deserves a follow and his podcast serves listen just for that. Did I appreciate it? Thanks, no problem. Josh, the pleasure is all mine. Appreciate you coming on the show. Also, appreciate CBS HQ. Have you guys checked it out yet? If you haven't you've missed out right now during the tournament is the best time to reach out. But really check it out. But it's really, it's always awesome. It's free. That's key twenty four hour. Sports network free twenty four hours so many good dudes on their Pete Prisco Grady Queen Danny canal. My buddy will Brinson who's been on the show, and it's not the politics. It's not contrived debates. It's not guys frankly lying about what they really think. Just to try to get a reaction out of the audience. I could never do that. By the way. I don't know. How people do that? It's always on. It's always free CBS sports HQ no subscription fee. No expensive cable package. Just download the CBS sports app on your phone fire. Tv roku. Or apple TV to start watching today. All right Ross tuck stakes. Let's go forward. Dude. A little differently this time. Yeah. Well, brian. I am on vacation in Mexico. I may or may not have to split a bottle of wine with my wife, but the people need their Ross Tucker football podcast, they crave there. Ross Tucker football podcast. And so while I have a daddy soda before the day. I will get to all of the tuck steaks from the last couple of days. So let's get to the biggest news. I guess would be the Cowboys trading. Robert Quinn, four Robert Quinn from the dolphins for twenty twenty sixth round pick. I'm actually a little surprise the Cowboys. I think Quinn ended up getting like nine point two million. That seems like a lot for Robert Guinn at this stage of his career. Now, the dolphins just waited and paid the roster bonus of one point one two million to get. That twenty twenty sixth round pick. So this is basically what the dolphin strategy is right now is to trade cap space and money to get future picks. I think one point one two million for a six round pick. It's probably more reasonable than essentially five million for tannehill trade for a fifth round pick and the Cowboys now have an edge rusher. Opposite DeMarcus Lawrence that they can actually count on because you know, the other guys, you know, Randy Gregory's always suspended, and they just never know what they have on the other side. So Quinn should get a lot of one on ones. And I think at age twenty eight twenty nine he may not be as Guzzi was four or five years ago, but he should still be good enough to be able to take advantage of that. So that's the biggest move over the last couple of days, the raiders have been active. They signed running back. Is Ahah Crowell and linebacker. Brandon Marshall, I'm a little surprised that teams like the eagles and others. Didn't get it on is eight Crowell. I think I saw where he can make up to two point five million. That is not a lot of money for a guy. That's been very productive end would not count against the compensatory pick formula. You know, he got released by the jets. So if you're one of these teams that think she got compensatory picks coming signing crow. L wouldn't have hurt you there? I think there's a bunch of teams that probably should've taken a flyer on Crowell at that rate. Speaking of running backs the Panthers sign running back Cameron Artis Payne. He's from Harrisburg where I live in central and he's back with the Panthers for I guess a fifth year a lot of patriots news as well Bri. They've hired Girod mayo as linebacker coach. And I do think it's interesting the timing of that. That being announced on Wednesday and then Thursday patriots defensive coordinator, Greg Shono, abruptly resigned, which is a real negative. I think if there is a conspiracy theory Bri, it's that they're trying to prevent me from winning podcast of a year with all the additional listeners. We would get every time the patriots played or didn't do well defensively. And I would be able to say who. Because that's how. But now, I'm not going to be able to do that because he just abruptly resigned. So he said he wants to focus on faith on his faith and his family. Yeah. I don't know what that means. I think there could be a lot of speculation frankly about what that means when someone retires resigns from job, March twenty eight and talks about faith and family. The only interesting timing part of it to me is it's the day. After Gerard mayo gets hired as linebacker coach. I don't think that would bother Xiang. No. I don't think that that would be what you know, pre prompted this. I think he knows that Bella checks the one that's going to hire the entire staff. But I would tell you that there have been other situations where a guy wasn't able to hire the coaches he wants, and he's I well if I can't hire my guys, I'm regaining. I don't think that's the case with Shana. Oh at all, Mike Brown. Bengals owner says Andy Dalton has to reach. Establish himself for a new contract extension. I think that makes sense for the new coach. Why not right? I think that's fine. I'm surprised he said that publicly rather than just supporting him. But that's fine. Speaking of quarterbacks two bucks signed Blaine gabbert to compete with Ryan Griffin as the backup in Tampa. So they're kind of going on the cheap for backup quarterback. But they didn't want it to be just Ryan Griffin. They wanted somebody else. I do think it's interesting that Jameis Winston wants to play it two hundred and fifty pounds. I don't really understand that I guess the thought processes he's going to take a pounding. And that they're going to throw the ball deep, and he wants to be strong and sturdy in the pocket and be able to take the punishment. I just tell you any day of the week. I'd rather have them be to thirty five maybe even two thirty and be able to move around a little bit better. So I don't understand that logic. That doesn't make sense to me at all just because big Ben's to fifty doesn't mean James should be to fifty. And then finally. Jordy Nelson retires at the age of thirty three after eleven years in the NFL nephew look at his last five games for the raiders last year. He really played. Well, I mean, he really put up some pretty good numbers. I actually thought he'd end up like resigning with the Packers or maybe signing with the patriots. I'm sure they were interested to pair him with element right now. But I guess it wasn't worth it to him. And he wanted to move on. He has had a bunch of injuries. And so that'll do it for Jordy Nelson in the NFL eleven fantastic years always kudos to guys like that. That have terrific careers. Make a ton of money, and can do whatever he wants now for the rest of his life. I love that one's many guys to get to that point because of the physical punishment that professional football entails as many of them as they can. I am thrilled for them. That'll do it for. For a finish strong Friday edition as well. As a winners Friday edition of the Ross Tucker football podcast, if you wanna check stuff out over the weekend, the college draft was excellent with Fran Duffy breaking down D line fantasy fees was really cool going over the mock draft stuff with Benjamin standing, and then we also on even money podcast broke down little March madness.

An from right here as you're humble host on the Ocho it is his Monday July twenty second two thousand nine teen and it's a big week. It's a really big week because this week on Thursday the Dallas cowboys arrive in Oxnard California and you know what that means when it's Oxnard when it's July it means the Dallas cowboys are having training camp. That's right we did it. We made it. It was a very long off season. You know I say that and honestly I feel like this was the shortest offseason. I think I've personally experienced you know. If you follow me I got married. That was a big deal. We just took a big vacation. Obviously my whole family night but in sports context Tiger Woods won the masters I mean hello that was kind of awesome the U._S. Women's national team on the World Cup the Toronto Raptors. We're not going to talk about because I live in San Antonio and I'm very salty. It was cool. Man Brooks captured his thing I mean it was a really cool off season in terms of the rest of the sporting world and is somebody who's gotten more into soccer. I've really enjoyed all the transfer news. That's been coming about so that's been a lot of fun so really really really cool but it is great to be at this time of year late July early August uh not quite but you know what I mean and pretty soon it will be football season pretty soon. It'll be the fall pretty soon college football be starting and that's a lot of fun so we made it. We did it. We made it and we're here and so I'll be out there at training camp. I leave on Saturday E._S._p._N.. San Antonio we're heading out for our cowboys camp coverage thing at the Miller lite beach house.

This is my third training camp to cover and it's a lot of fun personally and to get to deal with guys at the become really good friends in terms terms of the E._S._p._N.. San Antonio Family and we're staying at the same house we stayed in last year so it does kind of have like a summer camp survive and so I'm really looking forward to it but what what are we looking forward to when when it comes to camp besides the extracurriculars because it's easy to get excited about camp but why I mean what are we pumped about specifically what what specific things when it comes to Dallas cowboys. Are you excited about. I sat down and come up with the list and I wrote it. That's right was dot com. You can check out the list and seven things I think seven's a good number fun- fund number holy number seven things. I think I'm personally. I think you're excited for when it comes to training camp and what we'll see from the Dallas cowboys so without further ado let's begin number one Kellen Moore and his offense because this is probably the biggest thing the cowboys offense has been really bad at times over the last two years. I've mentioned this a lot of places but two years ago it feels like this is forgotten. The first three games zeke Elliott was suspended and Dak detractors will use this against him but the First Three Games Ziegler it was suspended at Atlanta. The burning of Atlanta is Jerry Jones later referred to it the chess game at home against the Philadelphia Eagles. What came to be divorce loss ever at eight hundred stadium on tonight? The aforementioned Jerry Jones was honored for entering the Hall of fame and then Thanksgiving Day against the Los Angeles chargers those three games the cowboys failed to break double digits in terms of points. They scored in a single digits and all three games that had never happened before the Dallas cowboys before those three games in two thousand seventeen had never gone three straight games scoring in the single digits. We just kind of forgot about that. I didn't but it feels like everybody kind of did. It's amazing that Scotland Hin was retained after that but you know the cowboys it seems like kind of talk themselves into well. As the got suspended blended everything would have been okay and then last year it was well. We traded for Marin that obviously solve everything etc but the cowboys offense has been bad. I mean let's be honest. It's been really bad at times over the last two years and especially when they get the red zone everyone the cowboys getting the red zone. They are just so putrid. I mean they are really bad and so Kellyn Moore's offense is going to be focal point of training camp. What kind of college concept has he bringing if he's bringing any allowing back Prescott to get on the move is utilizing is index run ability utilizing these sort of specialty gadget players the cowboys had because they're kind of have a lot they kind of sort of mounted up in really added that tool and then some because they obviously had tape on us and last year they signed Randall Cobb drafted Tony Pollard people believe that Jim Isola wally is a bit of a gadget ish player so Kellyn Moore's offense is the thing to watch but a close number two for me because that is definitely number one a very very close number two the return of Travis Frederick and I wrote I wrote this in in the article again? BLUNDERBUSS DOT COM check it out and we talked about in the Saturday morning hangover last week. There was a time last year a training camp somewhere on E._S._p._N.. San Antonio we had Brian Price the cowboys defensive tackle at the time and Brian Price reason he was on with us is he went to U._T._S._A.. Here in San Antonio she's a road runner Alamo city to winnow you get it and we had ryan price on and the guys asked him a hard time because you might remember at one point early on in Camp Travis Frederick just absolutely disrespected Brian Price. I mean it was bad <hes> what Travis did brand price and it became came worse when shortly after we found out that travis was battling an autoimmune disorder the Bar Syndrome and that obviously sidelined him for the entire season and so Travis Frederick returning from that is a big thing in yeah travis has been involved in Otas and he's talked about lifting and getting the strength back but this is a different thing are gonna see the cowboys operate with Travis on a pitch count as you're going to get work. Every day is Joe Looney then it gets them work because you're going to be in the rotation. How are the cowboys going to handle this because there are veteran Keren days that guys are given off and it's going to be fascinating because see how the cowboys handled travis? Is he going to be his full physical self already. You know as training camp begins. It's hard to say yes but if he is I mean then you know it's worth getting excited about. Next on my list is life in Oxnard with Amari Cooper. Obviously the couch traded from Arias mentioned in the middle of last season in so Amari has never played a full season with the Dallas cowboys. He's never been around the team at the beginning of a season which means Amari Cooper has never been with the Dallas cowboys at training camp the only training camps he's ever experienced N._F._l.. Pro have been with the Oakland Raiders and so this is a mark Cooper's first training camp with the cowboys in a lot of this was who who were talking about specifically but when the cowboys have had a number one receiver in recent memory on their team at Camp it was obviously Dez. Bryant and anything does did was heavily you know disgust and. Because DESMA DO DAVE HELENA DALLAS DOT com front of the show Basil Good Dude he coined term that I think makes a lot of sense. There are things that were just Dez things I mean Dez did things that only days could do in those types of moments that would really go viral and pop off for training camp. Does Amari Cooper have that you know I. I'm going to be interested to see him. Ari has that kind of juice. If Amari gets into these battles with Byron Jones or should they say I'm going to be fascinated to see how lamar handles in a year ago. I wrote something about this. At the time. Tavon Austin was really kind of the leader of the cowboys receivers and at the time that obviously moved on from Dez and you know they needed kind of an elder statesman Avon's been in the N._F._l.. For a while I trump guys guys seen some things and Dan I'm. I'm curious to see how my cooper does. Does he kind of take that role does he lied young guys because there's a lot of new I mean in terms of guys that have been do a training camp with analysis county wide receiver Michael Gallup in Tae Yvonne Austin. That's Kinda your experiences yeah. You've got your landslide doors and you know cedrick Wilson and stuff but I mean we're talking about dues. That are definitely going to make the team so that's an interesting little wrinkle. Next isn't a receiver but definitely a receiving threat if you want to call on that Jason Witten. I know how you know he's going to look. I don't think everybody knows how he's going to look. I think we're all kind of going into this with some cautious optimism is he gonNA look good after year off is that you're off going to show in terms love rest in terms of <hes>. I don't know relaxation in terms of something that you know provides a level of relief for win because let's be frank I mean he's obviously closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning being that's partly why he retired a year ago so you know House Jason Wind GonNa look. I think that's a really fascinating thing because if whitten looks good that could be really interesting I if Jason Looks looks really good that could be one of the most interesting things to happen across training camps across the entire national football and beyond witten honestly. I'm excited to see all the tight ends because is blake jarring going to look good obviously finished the season on a high note before the witten you know return. How does Dalton Schultz look? This is your number two. I mean you know he's gotTa make a little bit. I believe and finally you will recall gathers used because we go is in the news all the time for all the wrong reasons but I digress next on my list in terms of things to look forward to for Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Out Oxnard in California Robert Quinn and I think this is a really unique one because Robert Quinn is potentially in fact arguably going to be the team's top defensive end throughout training camp and a lot of that really all of that has to do with the fact that demarcus Lawrence obviously coming off shoulder surgery and the cowboys. You're going to take their time with him. He is at the moment the highest paid player in Dallas Cowboys Franchise History Dak Prescott could certainly break that if and when he does get his brand new deal bobby belt talked about that last episode here on the Ocho said he thinks that you know that could happen before August is over. I don't think that's wrong thinking but Robert Quinn than if democracy isn't on the field in Oxnard is basically your star pass rusher her town Crawford and you've got doorns Armstrong on top of Charleston and Mandy Gregory I guess is you know unique situation but Robert Quinn's that guy and the cowboys traded for him. The obviously believe he's going to be something special. They they obviously are hoping is going to be something special and I'm excited I it started at a certain point at one point. We are going to get robber Quinn versus tyran Smith that will be fun so I'm looking forward to that next thing on my list in terms of things we're looking forward to is another defensive line for the Dallas. Cowboys clicked inside. I cannot remember in bobby mentioned this as well. I cannot remember the last time the Dallas Cowboys I pick in the draft. Was this not talked about. I mean who is talking about Tristen Hill right now. Nobody nobody if you power into the story lines for the cowboys which is kind of what we're doing but if you power rank them entering training camp I mean tristen hill would be like. The twelfth maybe I mean there so many other things to talk about and to look forward to consider when it comes to the cowboys in Oxnard that it just takes a long time before you get to Tristen Hill and a lot of that obviously that he wasn't a first round pick second round pick etc but Tristen Hill is Rod Marinelli's Dude I mean he stood on the table for this guy they wanted him all along the Telegraph that picks forever ahead of the draft and so it's going to be fascinating to see how he does with Rodman Elliott because we've Seen Rod God turn dudes into legitimate studs legitimate stars not just on the cowboys but across his entire career in the N._F._l.. I'm pumped to see what Tristan Hill does are. We going to learn a lot about tristen during his first ever training camp no but it's a chance to finally see him in a lot of action against actual N._F._l.. Talent which is ultimately you know something we haven't seen up until this point I mentioned this was a list of seven things. If you have not been counting we are now six in which means you math wizards that we have one thing left one thing left in terms of things we're looking forward to from oxnard and to be clear. I know there's going to be something on this list that I didn't mention that you think is worth it and they're absolutely are things that I didn't mention that are worth talking about. This was just listen to seven. It's Monday okay all right you know came up with seven things and we got the final thing and it's kind of a ambiguous sort of thing but Zeke Zeke Elliot. I mean busy going to be there because there are weird. Reports coming on profootballtalk reported over the weekend that Zeke Elliott is headed out of the country potentially this week which is curious considering the cowboys training camp this week I mean that's low bold but yeah man I mean if Zeke's not there and that's look it would suck and let me clear nobody wants us but it would be interesting that that's what I'll say it would not at all be desirable it would not at all be preferred but it would be interesting because Zeke not being there would cast a shadow over for the entire camp that you know a lot of guys not being there would not really be missed to to just put it one way but Zeke Elliott not being there there. Would you would feel that and if he wasn't there I mean who's who's your rb one. I mean honestly who who's starting running back for the Dallas cowboys. If it's not Ezekiel Elliott Darius Jackson Toni Ballard I mean that that would be that would be interesting is really the only way I can put that so <hes> hopefully we don't have to wonder too long. Hopefully we get some confirmation. That's is in fact staying in the United States in Oxnard and hopefully this was just a waste of about a minute of all of our lives. That's really kind of what we're hoping for. At this point point for Monday's episode of the Ocho we will be back on Tuesday and having episode every day this week and again as mentioned heading out to Oxnard on Saturday if you're going to be there hit me up.
