After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months
"World turned upside down on its head with the announcement that the Redskins after what a century have decided to Finally change their name and Ah ah image and likeness and you know a lot lot into the store because still a lot of the decisions that have to be made. Let's head out to the wait for Dotcom hotline. We're joined by then. Fisher covers the NFL and Olympics for Sports business daily. You can follow Ben on Twitter at Ben Fisher s V. J. Ben will appreciate time and thanks for spending a few minutes with us here in Atlanta this evening. Have you be there? Anytime. So then let's talk a little bit about this decision. Do you think You know, part of the You know, whatever the internal review and things like that, that they had a pretty good idea that they were going to change the name. Do you think that they probably hired a firm? To already start to put the wheels in motion of coming up with new name, new image and things like that. Well, somewhat surprisingly, I don't believe they have That there's an obvious question the sort of thing you'd almost always bring in 1/3 party, um, agency or since consultants. But it appears by all accounts to be a very narrow circle there. Dan Snyder and a couple other people and not many others. Um, I guess makes a certain amount of sense because they know the more people you bring him more likely than a leak conceit. That's about but I'm not sure they actually have gone through a lot of those traditional steps. You would expect that of somebody doing a big rebranding. How much do you think if you just had to even kind of estimate? How many millions of dollars are we talking about from? I don't know. Hiring a marketing or PR firm to help with You know, with all of this, plus the actual creation of a name and logo and, you know, obviously will be merchandising and all that kind of stuff. What kind of money do you think A team gets into when when this kind of process takes place? What? Um I'd say all in and the big cost there, I think would really actually be the the lost merchandise and the things that you've already created, Or you like to be the Mari created there now useless. Um So I mean, I'd say 30 million. Mark is finished. I mean, that's a very uninformed guests. You know, I have to check a lot of things for that Sounds right time. You got your professional thieves, illegal fees. He spent a lot of time in court. Even if no one really fights trademarking, gotta go the European Union and get those trademarks and all sorts of things you and I probably would never consider And then you know you've got what do you think of all the products in this world business cards, Coffee, moans of sign anywhere that has a Redskins logo or a name. We gotta go be replaced in very short order. And the reason that 30 I mean, 30 may be high, but we're all going on the assumption that they want this happened very quickly. And just like constructing an office power if you need it done extra fast. You're paying overtime and your pain for things that you probably rather not. But That's the cost of expediency. Ben Fisher joining us here in the wait for dot com Hotline covers the NFL for sports business daily. Then talk to me a little bit about on. I don't know. I don't know if you know this. You know the process by which We know the league wants this to happen, and Roger Goodell has supported it. But what any idea what goes into league approval is if the owners in a certain percentage About the logo aboutthe name. You know, I mean, any idea about how that process works, at least get that step done and over with Uh, yeah, We don't need to approve it on and that's ah vote of owners. But other than that, it's it's actually it's not entirely clear, not on. There's not a detail procedure in public. And that is public knowledge on exactly how that happened. But the league certainly does have rights over this. You know each of these 32 teams the individual business for certain purposes, but The league knows they're going strong in its weakest member, and they don't want to be placed. One problematic became with another dude. Definitely I'd say so over that, But you know it's a bit of a black box exactly what they would be looking for, or what? Where the where the possible problems spots are on that son. You know, Ben, when the AH When Houston moved the Tennessee I believe it was Was it two years that they played with the Oilers marker or year year and 1/2 for something that they have the moniker before the seven? Okay, so they had them so they had the order. So my point is, is that it wasn't like the day that they moved to Tennessee, they become the Tennessee Titans. How long do you think this process plays out? And maybe compared from, you know, financial and just, you know, is there some comparison to how long it took with the Titans? Even though they knew that they were going to, you know, end up changing this. Can we kind of compare the situations about how long it may take for all of this to finally come to fruition? Well, I guess there's no reason you couldn't compare them because that is the last time a team change nicknames. Um, without you know, part of Ah, relocation or, you know you could talk about the ground Reagan's thing, Whether that was technically an expansion people, whatever but It was the last time you standing franchise without moving cities of changed his name, but it's so long ago. I mean that the scope of their websites but sort of your very basic, just digital properties that the Redskins will need to rename are so much bigger and I like being all that got so much more complicated, but that there is a good four compared to because that was a situation where The name change was part of a broader strategic vision and means that happened, But it wasn't necessarily important that it happened. By given bay. They were able to do things sort of under normal business. This is something now that it is completely different because there is a sense of urgency and we don't know exactly when they want to set up a new maid. But all indications are reporting is basically as soon as possible. And this is not something that you know, most business experts say wise to do. It's possible There's a 1,000,000 different things you get wrong. That re brandy. You want to make sure everything's perfectly buttoned up. So it probably doesn't take. You know, two years it took the Oilers to become the Titans, but it surely would be taking more than the two months that it would take. To put up totally rebranded team on the field in September. So my supposition that the season is going to be something of a neuron period in regard to the Washington football team name, and the more I think about it, the more I think that they might well play this year, just like known as the Washington football Club work. Burgundy and gold uniforms that simply don't have any luck. I'm not predicting that I'm saying that maybe the most likely explanation for them trying to do this this late in the summer. Amid everything else, the NFL is trying to say You're out with the pandemic, of course. Ben, talk to me a little

The conditions are deplorable for both the animals and humans at these meat processing plants and the health of both is compromised. Daily Ethan discusses in detail. I was company is improving the efficiency the safety the health and the environmental impact of his beyond meat. Production and the benefits are huge. We know that the average consumer even those who eat animal meat are aware and very concerned about these health and social issues. As Ethan says I believe there is a new dawn for American agriculture. And this conversation is our awakening our in fact just last week. Jim Cramer the host of mad money on. Cnbc said that beyond meat is a small company but so Amazon so was facebook and so was Google and then he goes on to say and I quote. It's all going beyond meets way and what is beyond me doing. They're cutting prices. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based Kramer continues to go on to say that the rising demand for plant based protein will not be a passing fad and that. There's no hobby here. The Hobby is going to end up being meet man. Jim You are talking our language. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based eating meats going to become a hobby love it?

Ethan Brown all right here. We are season two of the the plant. Strong podcast I am here with Ethan Brown. The CEO of beyond me. And I want you to know and I'm at World Headquarters for beyond me. Where exactly are we? So we're going to California el Segundo AB- like what two miles from the airport? Exactly yeah I mean it was the most. This is the easiest drive ever made from the airport and season to just so you know the whole theme is heart of a hero and we're really trying to identify People that are changing the game and and that's who were having an inviting on season two of the Pike Aston. You probably more than just about anybody. I know are changing the game in a multitude of ways and I and I wanna get into that so you are truly a game changer. Speaking of the game game changers. Have you seen the movie I have in before I even get into that? I mean I just WanNa share on August the impact you and your family out on my own life and just how much a fan of yours and incredibly sincere. I've watched forks over knives yet more times than I can count Shared it with more people than I can count And you don't want. We got a chance to connect few years back. It was a terrific thing for me. No I've been a big fan of yours for a long time to be here being everybody. You surreal well. I I'm flattered. Thank you and so in the game changers. You saw it. Did you like it. I love that movie. Yes in fact. You're so intimately viable that but I'm having to stop myself showing you a clip. Because it's almost every time someone comes to my office injured in this subject. But of course that would be lost on you because you set the record for most I think most downloaded most downloads of a documentary ever and they broke it in a little over a week. It's remarkable and it resonates so strongly with me for so many of the reasons that it also resonates with you of course But even as somebody's building business it was really important for me to see this You know growing up we were very much exposed to the got milk campaign. I mean that was something that was a big part of culture and and maybe less so today but you know the use of athletes to promote a particular type of animal-based protein with something the California Milk Board. Did you know very well And and that was something that because of my own background and interest in the milk industry. My family was doing I paid a lot of to the got milk campaign with came time for me to start my own company I. She hired the original sponsor of that campaign. I'm Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board. He had left since you grew up on a dairy farm. I grew up in the city. Okay on my dad's a professor and we He he didn't like being in the city and so he wanted to have a place to recreate because he grew up in the country and so got a farm Very early on in my childhood and he's kind of entrepreneurial so ultimately we get wholesale cattle there Dairy but but he rate so To went back and found the person who who wrote the original mandate for the got milk campaign of someone named Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board and that led to that campaign with milk mustache. And you know Bo Jackson Derek. Jeter et CETERA. And so I asked him to come work with me so we were together for a number of years creating the future protein campaign that we have here on the go beyond campaign and it's been been remarkable woman named Beth. Moskowitz has brought in more athletes. I can count Really remarkable career having or you know deandre Jordan Deandre Hopkins Chris Paul. They are now getting behind the idea. That a plant based Diet is the best performance and so game changers just nails that yeah and and there's a scene in there with the Tennessee. Titans football players and chastity. Morgan yes is cooking. I think some burgers on a grill. Those beyond Meat Burger. Yes we love the the Morgan's and all they're doing and I think that's just a great story and you're seeing that Clifford throughout the NFL particularly NBA. Where lightness quickness is so important you seeing so many. Nba Athletes turn to a plant based Diet for no other reason improve the performance. They also love the social aspect of it. They love the disruptive Challenger. Let's let's not do things the way we used to do. Let's bring something forward in this. World is a little better for for their kids. The challenge the status quo. Yeah there's a big big part of that

NFL plans full season, starting on time
"The big news yesterday in the NFL in terms of what happens going forward should the schedule B. as it's supposed to be about you again they say it's going to they're offering the promise never full regular season full post season the vote happened yesterday to basically that it was a rubber stamp as we was gonna happen to allow the two more playoff record about your team plans to use a seven seed in each conference which means they'll be three games a wildcard Saturday three games while card Sunday including one on Nickelodeon by the way summer Sanders this text me back she's all in team summer will get you in the mood for that game absolute done but then the question becomes is that the most significant change what happened yesterday or is what happens in the regular season the more significant thing because by adding that extra wild card they've eliminated the two seed and the benefits that go with it because now only one team gets the bite each conference the number one seed and remember Kansas city got a by by being the two seed last year and they got to host the AFC champs of game because the ravens lost right to the Tennessee Titans so in your opinion what's going to be more impactful the idea of a seven seed and maybe them find a way to get to the Super Bowl which hasn't happened since Super Bowl forty seven or the flight to make sure you hold that number one seed down the stretch without question extra team in the playoffs for me extra team in the playoffs because we see wild card teams win the Superbowl it can happen just get in you can't win the Super Bowl if you're not the playoffs yeah I I think it's it's much more likely on the other outlook while Khartoum island wild card teams as the league as presently constructed right hand women anymore I think when we the last time we saw it was really back before the new CBA taking it back in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the effects really started to seep in I don't think with the current constraints teams constructed like that having to deal with this can win a super walk I'm with you on this one so again well greeted they will fight tomorrow yes I am a hundred percent on this because not only that but it make sure that you have meaningful games played unless you have a four game lead right right right it does I know he's lost all seventeen games this season and eighteen weeks next year with a seventeen game season because again the seventeenth game with the new CBA won't start till twenty twenty one C. right price all have a regular sixteen game regular seasons over seventeen weeks the amount of such significant football that's going to be played down the stretch to make sure you hold on to that number one seed I think it's going to be buying a whack and it's still one of the great things that last week when you have all those division games in there but to me as I I again I speaking from a former player there is way more teams involved now they could have a chance to get into the playoffs and I'm all

Tom vs. Team: Why Brady is Moving On
"Well amidst everything happening in the world. Right now Tom Brady singlehandedly. Wrestle control of the new cycle and in the process basically gave us in sports media a miniature stimulus package by announcing that. He's leaving the New England patriots. Seth you have covered Brady forever. You've been to his house. You've covered this team for a while. What was your initial reaction to today's news? I think it's been in the works for a long time. I think it's been in the works since training camp and I think that people just didn't want to believe it New England fans didn't want to believe it some media members didn't believe it. Even people close to Tom. Brady didn't want to believe it. Even the people who did believe it in some ways didn't WanNa believe it and yet here we are I should note here that all season long says McCain has been texting me. I think this happened. I think this is going to happen. And I've written back really come on really stuff so you were right and here. We are and as you mentioned not. Everything's been roses in New England for quite a while now and we'll get to that but until I think this season. It didn't seem realistic to a lot of people that he would actually leave. So let's go back to the beginning of the year. When did that start change? Well I think that he almost left training camp because he was so frustrated about the contract negotiations that were going on with the Patriots for years. Now he is wanted a commitment and he has said with every ounce of sincerity that he wants to play until he's forty five years old and I think there's a part of him that felt like he had earned that commitment from the New England patriots but in lieu of that. He just wanted clarity. If you don't want me here fine I'll move on but you have to let me know and in the fall of eighteen. He signed what was termed at the time. As a two year extension was not an extension it was essentially five million dollars in bonuses that he never hit and then this year he entered the year as fifteen million dollar quarterback on the books which is astounding in August. He and his camp were in negotiations with the Patriots again. They were not interested in committing beyond a year to him and again reportedly he almost left training camp because he was so frustrated about it but when he finally did commit to playing and sign the deal he said all along that he was just an employee there. I show up and do my job. I'm an employee like everyone else. I'M GONNA show this week to do the best. I can do a quarterback when he said I'm just an employee here that was a little bit different and everybody always knew that even though Tom Brady could say he was a player just a player. Everyone knew that he was Tom Brady. Everyone knew that he could talk to. Robert Kraft whenever he wanted to. Everybody knew he go to Robert. Kraft's house whenever he wanted to so. It was always a little ridiculous that he would say that. I find your point about him saying. I'm just an employ really interesting because everybody knows that bill belichick is fairly ruthless. Really when it comes to you know how he manages personnel in his job is GM. He will move on from a star a legend right away but it was always the assumption. Tom Brady was above that he was not just an employee. He wasn't just any player to ballot. Check do you think that changed at some point recently or do you think that's always been the case? I think it's always been the case but I think what changed was Tom's perspective. I think the assumption was that it was Bella. Check who would be willing to move on from Brady and cut or trade him. Even though we all knew that Robert Kraft was never gonNa let him cut or trade. Tom Brady unless things got so bad that he had no choice to do it. I think there was always the presumption that Tom Brady wanted to retire a Patriot and again the past couple of years. There's been a lot of turmoil in the building. Twenty years is a long time to spend working so closely with a ruthlessly driven coach like bill. Belichick there's one assistant who told me working one year with bill. We'll take a year off your life and Tom's been in that system for a long time and he's tired he wants to do something new. I think that's were Brady. Decided to take control of his story and changed things Brady starts talking about himself as an employee and I think this sense of unease sets in did that persist throughout the twenty nine thousand nine season. He's a professional bill. Belichick said professional once. They're they're they're going to do everything they can to win every week but the season for the Patriots was weird season. It was a weird season because their offense didn't pull its weight for the entire year and that's very rare especially the last half of Brady's career with the patriots as they become they become so much of a pass. Heavy offense dominated team you know. Obviously they had Antonio Brown pretty was very excited to play with him. They light up the dolphins with Brown in the lineup. Antonio Brown had been accused of sexual assault then. A sports illustrated article comes out detailing. All kinds of new allegations and Robert Kraft who says he doesn't involve himself in personnel and football decisions makes a decision organizationally that they're gonNA move on from him. Brady was very upset about that and I think bill belichick was upset about it too. They wanted to see what the offense could do with Brown and so I think that's one of those sort of hidden moments from the season that I think ends up becoming a bigger deal than it was because after that the New England Patriots is here without Rob Gronkowski. Just couldn't get a receiver as open as they were accustomed to in the past. And so the offense just didn't play very well into remember at one point in the season. It looks like the Patriots were. They were talking about going undefeated again and then they lose to Miami in the last game of the season at home and then they come out against the titans in the in the wildcard round of the playoffs. The Patriots were beaten up for most of the game and yet late in the game. The Patriots got the ball back and it just looked like they were going to recapture the magic. The magic that were so accustomed to seeing from Tom Brady. He hit a pass for about twenty yards. Got a little bit of breathing room and then the drive just stalled and on second down Brady threw outside of Julian Edelman white behind Brady Bunch. Before it was an out route join Dorset Britain dropped back. It was a route two oldest football. It's a route that these guys have run so many times over the years short set walks in on the side at the forty five yard line turning to run an element dropped the ball and even though that's not when the game ended it felt like the game ended right there. You could feel the air. Go Out of the stadium. You could feel the wind. Go out the New England patriots sideline it just felt that after twenty years after all those super bowls after winning and losing some of the greatest games in NFL history. This run was over. That's the way it felt to me. Tennessee titans have come into foxborough and defeated. Tom Brady and the pats twenty to thirteen in his wildcard. Rob You were there. What was brady like in the aftermath? I've seen Tom Brady. After a lot of losses I've seen him after a lot of season ending losses. He looks physically ill. After losing a game that ends their season but against the titans after losing game ended their season this year. He seemed different. Usually Tom waits a long time. The game to come to the podium and granted the game ended late but he came out of the locker room like a hurricane and he got to the podium and was in no rush to leave. He sat he chatted. There's nobody who had a better career I would say to me. I just being with them so I'm very blessed and I don't know what the future looks like so I'm not going to predict it so I wish you'd want tonight and We should done a lot of things better over the course season but we just tend to get the job done. It was just a different vibe that he put out there that I've ever seen before and when he left and he walked out. He just had a vibe that he was over it he was done.

NFL 2020 Free Agency Predictions
"This is my favorite time of year I like to refer to it as camper time in the NFL as free agencies get ready to start here in a little less than a month and that this kind of stuff happens at the combine doesn't it a little bit yeah and and first of all one nice thing about the profession that I have is you know I can't say Hey I'm busy and then like you can turn on the TV and I got a phone line or not this is nice you got to tune in to get out he actually it's but anyway you know this year just because of the way the schedule is two weeks between when free agency begins in and won the combine is you may actually see less tampering than than ever before just because there's there's a camper window and there's a lot of time to to get things done I mean there's there's definitely a possibility that teams leave here without really having a great sense with the free agent market is and without really having a great sense of where guys are going and then it should be two weeks of scrounging around and ensure trying to get the info and you know some of the other stuff that we live in our jobs in I've been intrigued by this NFL collective bargaining agreement that's been going on between the players and the owners one of the things that I'm really intrigued in is the movement from Tuesday to Thursday for a franchise in transitional tags yeah I did that happen mainly they're just not gonna be enough time I mean there is a possibility tomorrow that there's a new CBA there's also a possibility that there's no new CBA and teams are going to have the ability to franchise and transition players and that landscape changes dramatically I mean you have teams like you know the Tennessee Titans which could lose one of their top players in you know either Ryan Tannehill R. Derrick Henry you have the cowboys who could franchise or transition you know teams can use both if there's no new CDA if there is an issue BA they can only use one that's dramatic so I think they they just wanted to give teams time to really find out their options figure out what they're going to do if we get any CPA which is no guarantee we get sold sold your timing on this is within the next twenty four hours or so because it's possible yeah so so that's it that's it that's interesting because when you look at all the deals that are out there you would think that the owners will go ahead and secure the gods they want right now rather than wait to find out what's going to happen the collective bargaining agreement yeah but the problem is you have agents who know that the salary cap might go up I mean it's not going to be a lot but it also goes up five million dollars if you're dak Prescott don't you go or you know whoever Amari Cooper whoever that is a little more that like if you're planning on making a guy salary act and the salary cap goes up to five and five you know five million dollars a year then the player should be given more right so I think what you're seeing now is everyone's in a little bit of a standstill because no one knows what the actual landscape it is and it's not a place where in a lot because in the NFL everyone planned so meticulously but because of the CBA landscape that's exactly what's happening right now I even if you were a fly on the wall during our show on Friday we had a ton of discussions about this this new collective bargaining agreement that is going to be voted on by the the full arsenal of players and and big al was the the team representative for the NFL PA for eight of his nine years in the league it is very much bothered by the fact that the the team representatives were nods able to vote first before they went to the full legal why did they skip that part of the process we which part of the process because well what what we put out their own nothing Friday is that they're going to the plaza sociais Asian is going to bypass the the player reps and go right to the players and now we found out that it's going to be a simple majority from the player's association player reps and then they'll decide whether or not they take it over to the players it's just it feels like that it's been shut down to players the approach right now yeah I need it don't delay it's going to be now is there's so we we've seen the executive committee which actually negotiated the deal that both against it right and I'm kind of way in which crazy balancing them kind of way and and then the only change now is they're going to do a vote of the NFL P. A. player wraps but they don't need a two thirds vote now they only need a simple majority to pass it on to the entire group of players that's been a small ship but it might actually you know actually get a deal done yeah the two thirds of the player reps no recommended then they make their official recommendation to the players to ratify it that's really the only difference so it is actually going to the rap's first before the entire body of players take in do you think that there was a chance that what the executive committee voted on and discussed during their meeting with the NFL owners and that's a that's a board of eleven players so there's no ties is always a tie breaker okay voted against it do you think that that seventeen game was added at the last moment in the twelfth hour all now that's what's interesting in every single negotiation not the executive committee has had with the NFL owners has included a seventeen game every single one every single every single offer back and forth has been based around the seventeenth game that's what's that's what's just crazy about the executive committee coming out against it is they've known that every day getting a C. B. A. don was predicated under adding a game and of course getting a lot more money for the players what they want there was some information out there that was released I think over the weekend that the seventeenth game is gonna be played for two hundred fifty thousand dollars cap yeah is there any truth to that it's kind of true so it you know I. as in everything else trying it really depends on how you look at so you know for most of the players you know eighty percent of the players they're gonna get properly compensated for adding a seventeen they'll get a a raise in their game check basically the get an additional game check for the players who make now for the players who make a significant amount more you know J. J. watt of the world for instance they will not get any more than twenty fifty thousand dollars for that seventeen game alone but obviously there's signing bonuses roster bonuses and all sorts of different ways to change salaries so it only applies to the game check so yes it's true but it affects an unbelievably few amount of players yeah it where there's a will there's a way to get these guys paid but you know we talked about it would you just kind of popped over that kind of speed bump over that because if you take away twenty percent of the top twenty percent of the NFL are we talking about the XFL now we're talking about the base of Reuters minimum guys rookies except you know kind of players
Why was everyone disappointed by the AFC and NFC championship games?
"Both the AFC and NFC championship games were stinkers neither lived up to the hype I'll push back on the first one I don't know what people really expected I get that this was a Tennessee team that it was a team people maybe started to buy into because of Derek can range because of the fact that they defeated the patriots and defeated the Baltimore Ravens and was anyone other than Nate Burleson who on the CBS Bob pregame show he picked the Tennessee Titans I think to win by four five points was anyone else pick in Kansas city lose this game what was anyone so I don't expect that to be a great game I expected that to be a blowout what I would say though and where I would push back is that the first step but don't was entertaining enough and and the other day I met the other day it was awful it was brutal that was a boring football game unless if you're forty I understand you were loving it because if you're a fan of a team that's the best type again you can get when it's a blow out you dont that any stress you're going to have time it's twenty seven did not thing and you're trying to talk yourself into Hey I'd the score quickly would you know Green Bay they they had a response for a little bit maybe if you start to feel a bit tight but you know that game was over so the second game there is no doubt was absolute stinker was an absolute blowout was an absolute pedestrian football game it was so boring that second game still though you need to give credit where credit is due because that is been a team this year other than the game against the Baltimore Ravens where they could won that game too there's really never a moment when you look at the forty Niners and you were disappointed with them this year I even act and I wasn't disappointed when they are lost the ravens either because it was a close game but that's what this team is done all throughout the year no matter who you put in front of them they find a way to get the job done and the San Francisco forty Niners and a lot of the times it's not even close and going back to when the year started when we look at the San Francisco forty Niners what did you think about that it may be if everything goes right they would be at best the sixty member Jimmy J. in there and the beginning where he was in training camp down interception after interception people saying are you know I this is a quarterback is not worth the money is not worth the money and identity only to rate passes the other day but that's what you need to do that's all I need to do to get a victory they would've been fullest nine a day elected to throw the football there they need to do it because most was running modeled for over two hundred yards and four touchdowns but you were back in the forty Niners team this year thirty one to seventeen the ball out Tampa Bay forty one seventeen they blot Cincinnati the bridge work twenty four twenty the first time I think they really delivered a big time statement was up against the Browns that was a Monday Night Football game it was thirty one to thirty wasn't even close then they back it up with a victory over the rams twenty seven all right didn't play great in that monsoon of a game against the Redskins but they still one nine nothing they crushed Carolina fifty one to thirty one Caroline at a very good record then I Jimmy G. step up and make that big third down throw against the cardinals they went twenty to twenty five all right they suffer the first loss this was the Seattle twenty seven twenty four game is that over time they bounce back they beat Arizona thirty six to twenty six they crushed green bank thirty seven to eight they lose the Baltimore at some questionable play calling at the end and they lose twenty to seventeen them beat the saints forty eight forty six all right that the heck up they lose to let the twenty nine to twenty two but a led display better at the end of the season then beat the rams are Jimmy G. makes those two big turning sixteen diversion thirty four thirty one and they had the memorable finish up against the Seahawks which led them into a bye let them into the number one overall seed and wasn't a great first half against the Vikings they make the big turnover was Sherman and the second half they win that game and they dismantled the Packers all throughout the year the Packers they were a team that we are trying to say that they were great but the bad guys never I never really looked at and said wow that's great football team sure there were times defense look really good the president's very Smith sure there were times where Rodgers stepped up and delivered and evidence by last week those two big third down throws doesn't want Adams sure there were times with Jones tolling for twenty touchdown drive the number was yeah there were times where in pieces you said well this is really impressed about the Packers but as a team you never looked at them as a dominant team even with the inflator record of thirteen and three we're on the other side you see what Kansas city was doing it was that slow start they had some losses early on my homes gets hurt defense wasn't playing well and really ever since we go live in on that team in Kansas city all started to gel moms is back he was helping my homes was with the weapons that they have that was never really concerned about the offense and then defensively that was the team that has started to improve a Frank Clark with the honey badger entire on that do you and they totally did a complete one eighty with their defense with that defense doesn't have to be great that defense just has to be good and of that defense is good or even an average with the way that that quarterback threw for playoff games by the way for playoff games sixty two point seven percent completion percentage one thousand one hundred and eighty eight yards passing eleven touchdowns and no interceptions first your S. C. title game loss where it was it was it is small and second year now they're in the Superbowl third total year in the league but study the is the this does second time starting his first year he's behind Alex but then they get one start that season and if you look at that's run fifty one to seven they outscored Houston after going down twenty four nothing after going down seventeen to seven the Tennessee twenty eight to seven he threw the touchdown passes last year and his first full season starting at the end of the quarterback position this is a video game this is sensational and it just keeps on getting impressive an impressive week after week it's almost as if you want to just keep seeing them go down twenty four points and how they're gonna find a way to come on back and we set it up last week well you can't go down big the Tennessee with the way they run the football they went down ten points and still the game in the second half was over this time around again the forty Niners maybe it'll be different because the way that defense plays but it's it's amazing what Holmes is doing it really is and both these teams I would say that the two best teams I know that that's where we are at the finish line but when you look at it I thought can seize guns to brought before this season and the other thing that team and the forty Niners all throughout the year they've been the best team and they keep on showing the showing up but they keep on passing the test we get a

Cody Kessler, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley. Okay. And if I'm John David booty, my head's on a swivel wherever the hell. I am right now. Maybe Matt castle did castle a start this year.

I know you're not following these numbers, but Lois total of the week thirty seven. Okay. So not offense expected tonight where you tone along where where are you towing alone on that one? I think I think Tennessee blows them out tonight. Tennessee's played well on nationally televised games in the state of Texas. You know, I know Houston eventually took care of business against them. But they beat Dallas there. So we'll see mariota tonight. I said Mario needs to with this team to to keep on winning. Then may be seven six, man. Right. Then they're seven and six sitting back watching the Broncos minus Emmanuel Sanders going to San Francisco. Not rookie wide receiver. I'm not hooked on that feeling right now. And in you got the colts at Houston dolphins against New England ravens against Kansas City. That's a huge look at that. You could have a bunch of you got have to teams at seven six and the titans and the ravens and maybe the Broncos in the colts and the dolphins staring at six and seven.

"You're able prediction comes true twenty six ten Campbell's. Well, I gotta follow. I got to piggyback on that. Because the Cowboys have not lost a home yet. They're playing tennis. Tennessee titans. And again say until the blue in the face, and you got two weeks if a pair so today to be fair so both of them. And and that's a great point. But I always liked the teen the play. Home after the bye, okay. And again, you know, as you just you just mentioned the ad. You know, they got a lot of they seen a lot of tape on the Cowboys. They've seen some of the match ups and that they can go to. But again, I'm going to go with the Cowboys. And I'm going to I'm going to say, I'm not this because they have Amari Cooper doesn't mean they're going to solve the second half thirty five points. I'm gonna go twenty two six Cowboys win. Okay. You know, you're right. I mean, just because it is immoral. I mean, nachos are still nachos. Even if they have jalapenos on exactly we've got to get in the end zone. Yeah. Exactly. I will say that in each of the last two seasons. So both in two thousand sixteen and in twenty seventeen the Cowboys won their first three games after the bye. I think that's again. It's just that doesn't mean anything is the different team different year different set of people different receivers and everything you wanna talk about. But that is. Is that does suggest that Jason Garrett uses the bye week effectively? Whether you're old coach Jimmy Johnson thinks so or not. I we saw call him Hollywood Garrett. Yeah. That's a good holiday spending. Hollywood. It's been out in LA on the by weekend. I'll just say this the only game he was at as far as we know the dodgers won. So I mean, maybe the dodgers blame Jimmy Johnson for not letting Jason go to ten dollars games because then maybe they'd be the World Series champions. I don't know. I mean, I'm just stating facts, Tony. I mean, these are just love and Jimmy Johnson stirs a pot. That's true. That's a good good point. So so we both got the Cowboys. We've got some good things happening for them. This can be really exciting. And I really do that. I like the home team after the by which makes this game all the more important because after this game the Cowboys traveled to take on the eagles who are currently on their backs. So they will be the home team after the bye next week. So you got to have this one or else things could get a little dicey down the road. Yeah. This is guy. This is a very not a desperate win. You know, what if the Cowboys are what's the way they want to go? This is a game that they they should win. So yes, it's a must win. I I think that there's a negative connotation with the word desperate. I think that's fine. It's a definite moment being yet. Desperate more hungry. Exactly go go cash in on that desperation. We'll be back next week. Hopefully after a Cowboys win hopefully on a Tuesday edition of victory. Paulo monday. See it still victory Paulo Monday. Even if it's on a Tuesday tone. It's a very important detail. Doesn't matter we'll work that out then good show would enjoy the weekend. Enjoy LSU Bama. And and we will be back next week. This was the seven five. Hello.

"Was one of the one of the schools he applied to and and we'll see what happens. We hasn't made any decision yet. But you know. I'm just trying to figure out that whole dynamic twins going going to school at the same time. But anyway, really interesting, I'm interested to watch chain champions. But back to the bold predictions. I went gone off instantly because the matches, but I really like the match. I liked it in the match ups the Cowboys defense versus they're the titans offense. Again, I think this is could be a feeding frenzy we're talking sharks in the, you know, smelling the blood. Okay, fritzy, I think this is going to be gained the Cowboys shut him out when I maybe maybe some MA be one of those really borne games as you mentioned early LSU versus Alabama, but Alabama's a lot better. Now, they found a quarterback. But I think it's going to be a game where the Cowboys really exploit the lack of offense of production on for the titans this year. And I'm going to predict that they to turnovers on on defense. I think Byron Jones I think this sets up for him. And the linebackers. We mentioned right off the top of the podcast. I mean, Jalen Smith. They this is probably the the healthiest this team has been on the defensive side. It's got Sean Lee back doesn't same. He's. So you got a tremendous amount of death. I think it's going to be one of those sharks in a frenzy. And I think collectively it's going to be one of those gains were talking about a New York Giants performance when they had what in week week to where you looked up in the third quarter. They excess. Yeah. Exactly. So as a whole overall the bow prediction for me is not a shutout. But they're going to hold them to least I would say ten points. So you got him to force turnovers, ten points or less. So basically if we tied a bow around your predictions, just the defense kicks ass. That's your. Technically, I didn't really didn't want to get into the stats, but it's just going to be a very dominant performance by the defense. I gave it to you. I'm down with that. So I've got Gallup for a buck forty you've got the defense flex in on the titans takeaways. Okay. I dig it. I did that a lot. And so let's pick this game. We've been all over the place picking things this weekend or not this weekend. Season for the Cowboys. I tell you what I'm really personally looking forward to this weekend. I drive obviously to every home game and driving on Sundays is such a bummer because I've got to listen to the other games going on on on the radio. And so this is one of those weeks where you get LSU bam on Saturday, and you get to watch all the games on Sunday. And then I get to drive on Monday when nothing's happening in the world. So I am personally excited. I'm so excited that I'm going to pick the Cowboys to win this game. I'm going to say twenty six to for you. I'll say ten that way..

"I think I'm really looking in this game to see what he does for the other receivers Kobe's rank and some of the other things you may open up because he can has a reputation as a vertical receiver a number one receiver. That's going to be interesting to see what he does for that. Because. Kobe's Lii in the last game. I mean, he was in, you know, over the course of the season he's shown to be their number one guy. I mean, he's been the number one receiver as a slot receiver. So the whole dynamic of bringing someone like a more kuprin. What's he gonna do the other facets of the offense for the receivers? I mean, what is that going to look like that's going to be interesting to see how that kind of opens up. Also, I agree with you. And that kind of takes me to my bold prediction. It's that time. Tony, I know we were on a by last week. But we always kind of round out with a bold prediction each for the upcoming Cowboys game. So I think this I totally agree with you. I think that what Amari Cooper is going to do on Monday night is going to be more visible in other pieces of the box score. And so that's why Michael Gallup has one hundred ninety receiving yards on the season. I think he gets a buck forty. I think that Michael Gallup is the biggest house -ciary of Amari Cooper on Monday night. I think that so much attention is going to be given to him. I think I think that's a really hard thing. If you're the titans out, we don't really I don't think anybody's really mentioned that. If you're the titans, it's hard to prepare for the Cowboys this week because you don't know how they use Amari Cooper. I mean, that's just a whole extra folder of film to have to watch have to watch a Mari as well as the Cowboys. I think that Michael Gallup benefits, and then he has one hundred forty receiving yards against Tennessee. Wow. That is interesting perspective there. I would never thought that he would be that guy the benefit that much going in this game. I really didn't think about that. I think it's especially that many yards. Yeah. I think it's a combination. Nation of things I think it's a confluence because Dak Prescott is I mean, obviously the Cowboys lost Alaskan. But he was kind of finding himself kind of finding from a confidence perspective he drove down late to bring them within three points, obviously that didn't work out. But he obviously had a great game against the Jaguars. And a lot of what he's done. He's been on the ground. I understand that. But Michael Gallup has really kind of been finding himself within Dak Prescott, and we mentioned chemistry and comfortably and getting to know each other and becoming friends and whatnot. I think that Michael's kind of at that point that that point of assimilation where in November now. And I think that losing take on Austin who's not expected to play in this game was kind of you know, we use this phrase a lot over the Aussies kind of an addition by subtraction in that it forced the issue it forced Michael Gallup to be sort of that outside receiving the Cowboys needed. Now, they have a Mario on the other side. So I think all of those things kind of create this perfect storm that lends well to Gallup's case. Well, I mean, I tried to the courses season on my pull both predictions. I've went offense in this week. It might bull predictions are going to be on the defense side of the ball. Imagine that Tony Casillas puts on his uniform goes out there for. I wish I could go out there for one game. Check. I I have two kids going to college next year. RJ I saw by the way, congratulations to your son. I accepted to the university of universal. Komo. Thank you very much. That.

"No. I liked that. I like that a lot. So I don't know what element of the nachos. Amari Cooper is. Maybe he's the jalapenos because he spicing things up some people don't like how the pantyhose on their nachos. But they're wrong. So on the subject of Amari Cooper last week. We talked about the over unders that the guys in the desert had put out for him over the season quickly to revisit that. They set the over under for receiving yards from Ari for these remaining nine games at five seventeen and a half you and I both took the over on that they set receptions at forty and a half we both took over on that. And they set the touchdowns over under at three that's three touchdowns in nine games. That's pretty low. But again, it's a new shuffle new quarterback. I mean, the Cowboys haven't necessarily thrown a lot of touchdowns this season to begin with. But the over unders from art Cooper this Monday night against the Tennessee titans are out Tony. I want you to guess them before I tell you what they are. What do you think the over under from our coup? Yardage on Monday night is. I'm going to go eighty five. That's what you'd think they listed it as right? I'm gonna listen to eighty five. And if I was going to set the over Anonima Tony's over and under the eighty five. Wow. Will you would you You know? know, these guys are giving betters a far greater shake at this. Then you are the over under from Ari Cooper's yardage on Monday night, fifty point five five zero point five. Well, maybe that's my my Barry over optimistic. Well, I say I would think the overall at I would take the under on eighty five. But would you take the over on this? I would take over on the fifty. Okay. So you take over on fifty and a half. And I've got some other things that I think are interesting here. What would you say the over under the didn't have one for touchdowns, but for receptions, so receptions, just in this game? What they said he would have the over was fifty two point five at five point five yards. Someone do the math. I'm gonna I'm gonna go four receptions. See that's why you're the man it's exactly for that silver under. I don't have a treat or anything. But I know that you have some kind of your house. I was going to do the averages. But I'm not really good at math. To the app after we finish the show. Do me a favor. Go get a piece of candy. TC house, and that's your treat for guessing this. Oh boy. This oughta Rabah TC house. The over unders fifty and a half yards four receptions. I think I would take the over on the receptions, but I might take the under on the yardage because I think I'm always going to catch something like six balls on Monday night. But I don't I don't know if he'll he'll break fifty yards. It'll be interesting to see how much you know, how much I'm sure they're going to implement him in right away. I would say he's going to start the game. I mean, I don't know that yet. You would say, but he's listed as a starter as okay? So he's going to start and will be interesting to see how they use him. You know, they'll having about as a flanker receiver, you know, co basically in the slot. It will be interesting to see how the tide decide to defend Amari Cooper. I would say single caverns at first because. Right now. No, again, he hasn't what played three weeks and this the whole dynamic, right? And I just don't know how much they're willing to give up him and big place. Right. But I can see him break in one. I could see breaking a thirty yard or something. Yard catch. And if he gets three three of those that sixty yard there. And so you sprinkle in, you know, ten a five or ten. Yeah. Then that way it had to have at least over on. That would be is. I just said four receptions, then you're probably looking to be able to get eighty five. That's the Lisa five or six receptions. Right. Right. So I mean, it's interesting, and I will say this. So I wrote this other blog on the boys dot com, if you're listening and you want to kind of look at the information yourself so Amar is broken these marks twice so far this season..

"Get healthy to get re-energized and be everybody should be feeling. Pretty good. There's when you get halfway point in the season. Always thought it's kind of nice to have a buy week. Maybe we eleven. Later because you know, that's kind of the point where kind of rigor mortis start settling a little bit. He starts everyone's hurt. I mean, everyone's nicked up. I mean, that's landscape National Football League. But defensively when you look at the matchup. I liked the Cowboys what what they have done to this point. And again. You know, it's an offense. That hasn't really got anything going with the titans, excuse me the. Yeah. And so you automatically think well, you look at the match ups that should farewell for the Cowboys. And again, the only thing about me is that if you're you look at anything it's a quarterback that can run because I really think that the titans are going to come in here. It do exactly what every dual threat quarterback does. And really try to watch film and try to find, you know, bits and pieces where you can get you know, crates and plays in trying to figure out how to get Marcus mariota. Get him more in the rhythm and use that aspect of it. But on the offense aside the ball when you look at the titans defense again besides I mean, there's a defensive lines pretty good. If got Malcolm Butler, and it's kind of the sexy name, they've Gerald Gerald Casey is a big defensive tackle inside is very athletic. If you look at the forensic the players. Kevin buyer is a tremendous safety. Kind of reminds you Earl Thomas Kyra minds, those type of safeties of play centerfield is a tremendous tackler eats up a lot of screens. So there's a coup- there's some playmakers on a defensive side of the ball. And you know, again, it's it's the matchups it's their defense person versus the Cowboys offense. It's the Cowboys defense versus the offense which offense is going to actually be able to generate some type of points some pie some type of big play yards because you just can't look at the names right now. I think we agree right now the Cowboys it's not you can't look at the resume and what they did last year or even. It's not on the resume. It doesn't intimidate. None of this right now. The offense doesn't intimidate. Hey. It's all about what they decide to do again after two weeks after by week after all the stuff has gone on the dynamic of Amari Cooper, fire near offense, align let's see where it's at. And I think that they should have a lot of energy going in this game..

"If that makes sense, well, let me just kind of let me go over the rundown of the teams that play they lose to the dolphins twenty two twenty seven to twenty. And that's in my. Damming the Texans. They beat the Texans twenty two seventeen Jacksonville nine to six. There's your nine the six game in in the bottom of the tenth any extra innings. If you wanna look at it that way, and in Philly, they beat Bill twenty six twenty three the bills thirteen to twelve the ravens they lose twenty one to zero and they lose to the LA chargers. Twenty twenty two nineteen look at those teams not a lot of those teams. You look at wins and losses, and that's not very impressive with all those the seven teams that they play at three and four make the margin of the the only I guess the game you can really consider that they got blown out or not blown out decisively. Got beat was twenty one zero right a game. And if you wanna look at that and also if you wanna look into the vision or plan, it's really kind of a week division. I mean, you have you had the Texans which are what five and two now and below that. And you have a Jacksonville you have a Indianapolis Indianapolis with the titans are in second place in that in that in that division. So that's not if you wanna look at it that way, like, well, you know, they the margin of the losses are not that much except the ravens. But then you gotta look at who they've played, and you gotta get them credibility or not. But again here this all the time and it's hard to win a game every week and seemed like an Anassa football league because of the parody. Sure. And you know. I think I don't think I think when they beat the eagles everybody. I think everybody was ready. Everybody was ready to jump off. And believe in everybody's okay? Now, I'm ready to buy in on the titans. This is how they're going to be excetera, blah, blah. And of course, because they're the titans, they go, and they lose the bills the very next week. That's the titans are all. But so they are this. I don't even know that you can call him a Jekyll and Hyde team. I mean, they're just this lukewarm team that is sometimes warming. It's like sometimes, you know, like when you leave your coffee out, and you take a sip, and it's not cold. But it's Luke woman you like I can finish this. I mean, it's it's at a temperature that I can finish it, and it doesn't taste horrible. That's who the Tennessee titans are well, I like my coffee hot. I'm not an iced coffee guide. I am. I like to be a connoisseur or not a connoisseur. But I just know I drank a hell of a lot of coffee. But you're right. It's you know, they're attain that we look at who they played and the players they have on their tame. There's some really talented personnel. But the quarterback really hasn't played any kind of sounds similar to what we're again. There are a lot like the Dallas Cowboys three and four the only I think with Marcus agree with you the Amine Marcus and Dak both. Falling short of expectations. Have you wanna verbalize it? But obviously Dax not the second overall paved Acton win a Heisman Trophy and part of Marcus's issue. So far on the NFL has been the ability to stay healthy that has never been an issue for exactly right. But I I mean, so my point is I guess if I'm tight I think tightens fans should be more sour on Marcus than Cowboys fans are on that. 'cause if the doctor doesn't work out you lost a fourth round, pick, whatever. But if Marcus doesn't work out, dude, you had this insane chance, whatever, blah, blah, blah. You know, people like to give nicknames two games and stuff. I think this is the twin the Cowboys and titans. This is a show us. You're not dead game. You know, the winner of this game is going to show us that they're they're not lifeless. Whoever loses this game. I think is lifeless because I think we're right that these teams are both kinda, you know, kinda just hanging on in the world of relevance. And if you lose this game, you're three and five who which ever team loses and you're three and five you've already had your bye week..

"It's pretty good. You know, we talk about the dick lebeau rule if you allow your the opposing offenses scores seventeen points or less you should win that game. The cowboys. Greco basically averaging that and their second onto the Baltimore Ravens who allowing seventeen point one. So you're you're off by half a point. But the titans opponents are averaging eighteen point one points per game. So basically the titans have run into some good defenses this year and the Cowboys could be the best one. So I don't know that I can see anybody beyond Dion Lewis really having an impact Marcus mariota had this thing with his hand all season where he's felt numb. And look Tony. I don't know if this will shock you. I've never played quarterback in the NFL. But I have to imagine that if my hand was feeling numb. It would be a lot more difficult than if it wasn't. Well, isn't that Ryan hell has the same issue? I think it's the whole nerve. And then and I may not be accurately. Correct. On Marcus mariota his injury. But yeah, when it's your you've hand is because I to this day. So that issue with all nerve. I mean, this something is always going to be chronic with me. I can imagine someone being able to have to handle the football, especially in your throwing hand with that problem. But you know, what I don't want everyone to fall asleep at their wide receiver. Tell J J sharp is a very viable wide receiver. And you look at what he's done up to this point. We had a touchdown in which say one against Philadelphia. He's a big is a fiscal type of player. So you just cannot sleep on some of their playmakers. And as you just mentioned, I mean, they really haven't got anything going again, they're kind of the mirror of the Dallas Cowboys. But collectively if you look at the play, the, I guess you you look at Zeke Elliot and compare apples to apples. They went in that category. The biggest issue with that is how how I guess under how how bad the offense alive for the couch. Boys have really played to this point of not play. Very well. So they haven't been able to get those things go on. But again tells you a sharp if you look at him and you watch him play and what he's done this year. He could be an opportunity for them to get things going again, as I just mentioned, you know, the dole to dole threat of the quarterback creates problems for everyone. I just I just don't want everyone to just fall asleep on that particular player. No. I think that that's fair. I mean, I don't mean to say that the only guy that can hurt you for the titans, obviously, Corey davises solid as well in certain regard. But they're not these household names. You like look like who's this guy knows a lot of that people would look at it. And I I've never heard of this guy and unless you cover them unless you've seen them play. They're not these big household names. So I just you know, and I look at this. You mentioned college football though, while Mike rebel people have said so often that he wouldn't make such a college coach. I just I don't know that I'm. I'm nervous about Mike Ribble. I think it's worth mentioning that. Jason Garrett is so far on the season undefeated against you can't say rookie, head coaches. But I your head coaches with their teams, Pat Shurmur, obviously, it's as I you with the New York Giants, although he's been a head coach before Jason beat him. Matt Patricia we mentioned those Detroit Lions Jason Gopi him. So he's to anno- against teams that are coached by guys in their first year with them. So Mike Vrabel certainly fits that Bill. And I I mean again, I mean I don't mean to underestimate or look past the titans. But I mean, tell me tell me where it is on their team that you're supposed to look at in shudder. You know, what I mean, there isn't a whole lot. Maybe people are looking at the Cowboys in the exact same way. But there's nothing on that team that I'm going to lose sleep over this week..

"It is weird though to see you're right. I mean, the navy at home is just it's just kind of weird you're so used to seeing the Cowboys at home rocking the home whites. But so the titans have new uniforms in general new helmets and whatnot. This just kind of a weird looking game. But the titans bring with them Marcus mariota who the Cowboys have not faced yet in the NFL. They bring Derrick Henry certainly formidable running back who hasn't really. Done a whole hell of a lot this season for the titans. They do bring Dion Lewis. And that's where I wanna start because I think Dion Lewis, you know, we talked about this back when we talked about the lions game. I was nervous about THEO Riddick. I think he was part of my bold prediction that week. I thought the Riddick would would have something like a forty yard gain in the fourth quarter, something that was wrong. Thank god. But I think Dion Lewis is the guy that you know, you got to be concerned about if you're the Dallas Cowboys because he can certainly kill you in space. Yeah. And that's that's the I guess my key players in this matchup. Derrick Henry is this the big running back. But if you look at what they've done this your offense. They're kind of they're exactly like the Cowboys. They really haven't got anything on you know, going thirty I in total offense in the National Football League. But if you start doing the forensic part of it and you look at. Dion Dion Lewis and two hundred seventy seven yards rushing. But not all not only that they use them. Really well as a guy as you just mentioned in spaces that receiver and Heathrow in Marcus mariota. His he hasn't been very impressive this year strong of just over thousands yards. But again, he's a dual threat quarterback. And the combination him the capable of being able to Ron and Dan Lewis. I think that that's something you have to really really really keep in check because you don't want solely. No want someone like that just to explode on Monday night football. But yeah, I mean the combination of Derrick Henry Dion Lewis and Marcus mariota as far as being able to use his legs and Ron bleed he has whereabouts hundred eighty five yard eighty-five yards rushing. Creates problems for any team or any defense you're gonna up against because as you looked in the National Football League. And look at the Dallas. I mean, they like every other defense in the National Football League struggle with a dole threat quarterback and Marcus mariota can can really hurt you if you just really get a little careless, and they'll think about what he can do with his legs. You know? I think this has the potential to be an I'm I hope I'm wrong, but this has the potential to be a really gross game. We're gonna get LSU bam on Saturday. And you know, maybe that all end up the to a whole element changes things a bit. But you think LSU LSU Obama, you think of like nine to three you're not I mean, and this has not not this year, right? My point is that's that's what your brain. Gus exactly. Exactly, I know. I know. And I think this has not in an LLC Obama way. But this has the potential to kind of be like that because you have two quarterbacks at kind of still trying to find their footing on the season. You have to run games that are sort of interesting. But haven't really caught fire you have to defense's that are kind of Q, obviously, the Cowboys are a little bit cuter. And so this kind of feels like, you know, I think we could see like eight consecutive punts back to back to back to back. You know, something I thought was interesting Jim wide who covers the titans had a tweet on Thursday morning. He just was a few stats, but he's at the Cowboys are allowing opponents to score seventeen point six points per game..

"You know what I mean? But whatever. But so the Cowboys have the titans on Monday night, they're wearing different uniforms. Tony, I don't know if you knew this. The Cowboys are wearing their navy. Cops which you've won four and a why why pants white pants. They debuted that uniform last year on the road against the giants. Coincidentally. It was Dez Bryant idea to pair that jersey with those pants. So kind of funny that they're wearing it in Amari Cooper first game as a cowboy just some interesting irony there. But I like it. I do what do you wish you could have won that look the white jerseys always at home? I mean, what's great. I always like when we went on the road with with those uniforms and blue the blue, and then it was the silver pants. But I like the blue on on why I think that's a good. So I believe there's still and also like the throat back white helmets. I used to wear and that was pretty cool. And I'm sure they'll go with the star helmet for the game. But I think it's a good combination. And look change is good. I always thought to be innovative. And that's why I love college football. I love college football. Because of this how trendy and how vogue and what the what they try to do to make something stick out, creativity and everything and. It shouldn't be different with the National Football League. And I think you made the comment when the lions played the Cal God uniform hated that. But I like I like that I have no problem with that uniform selection. Look, you know, maybe throw something in there. And I'm sure that it's a they're going to be trying to sell those those blue jerseys all game long that will be something that will merchandise genius Jerry Jones and a Cowboys, and especially if they win, and, you know, everyone everyone will be wanting to get their blue jerseys at the game..

"They're going to poke around and say, you know, why you face timing. You should be running routes. What's Saddam makes? We're just gonna we're just going to nitpick this all day long. And look I mean, and that's the thing about it. And we talked about this yesterday on the seven five, oh is that people don't really know the constraints that you have it's not like you can spend twenty four seven with each other. There's only a lot at mount of time you can spend together. I mean, they got five days off and during those five days, you know, it's almost like college now with the compliance of spending time with players. But again, I think it's just having the rhetoric going back and forth verbiage the Simon's, I think for me it's more of a mental aspect of horizon. Ask not the biscuit aspect of it because we know Amari Cooper, would it can do. Now. It's just a connection between a quarterback and receiver and grasping a grasp on the whole of the mental aspect of the playbook. And I think that that kind of brings you guys closer if they can have a conversation back and forth, whether it's face FaceTime. Whether it's in person, it's all the same thing. How much do you think is, you know? And I think this is important in all avenues of life. Whatever may be its quarterback and wide receiver. If it's a contractor and builder. If it's. You know, whatever, you gotta be you got to know each other. You know, you gotta show. I mean, and I'm not trying to say this is the coolest thing I would that their face timing. But even if they face timed, and they talked about their favorite Netflix shows or they talked about their favorite Halloween candy's, or whatever I think it's important because we're we're very clearly reading the tea leaves here that Dak Prescott is going to be the quarterback of this team at least through next season. Amari Cooper, is regarded as a potential cornerstone player, and Jason GARRETT'S exact words, he's only twenty four years old to that point. I mean, they have to to know each other. I mean, they have to you know, and I don't mean forget football because obviously they have to know each other and a football sense. But they have to be friends. I mean, does that make sense or am I totally wrong here, and you've been there? I think you gotta develop it's much better to be able to develop a personal relationship with one of your teammate. And you don't have to go to work. You guys are doing the same thing the same. Livelihood. You're trying to compass the same thing, but I always felt like it was great to be able to once you leave the Bill into build establish more. Just just a job relationship a work relationship. Go out and have a burger bear with one of your teammates. You know, build some build some chemistry other than playing the game of football. Or, you know, you're pharmaceutical or whatever your business may ban. It's kind of nice to get away from each other. Because to me, I think it's got to be a little bit more to the core of the personality. And I think that that's on the offense aside, especially if you look back at most the really good teams. There's some continuity built between amongst the players. I know what the offense align. No. When we when I was playing we had an eye where we all go out on Thursday night. We go out and have a cold beer, go to steakhouse and just build that camaraderie way from what we did at work. And I think that that leached a lot more because I. You can't coexist with that one. No, you can't like everyone. But you wanna at least be around. I mean, kind of this normal a bit more than just playing football, or whatever you may do you wanna get more inside their head that, you know, real estate inside their head as opposed to just let's go to work. Let's head us chemistry..

"So it'll be very very fascinating before we get into the game you and I are recording this on Thursday afternoon. Jason Garrett already had his daily press conference, and he bumped it back. So this is his first press conference at the week. Normally does when on Wednesdays, but because the Cowboys play on Monday, obviously shifts things around and he talked about the moves that they made obviously and how they think it's going to make them better football team and the coaching changes and whatnot. He also talked about Amari Cooper spending time with Sanjay law. The Cavs receivers coach over the by said they worked together for three days they were both in the bay area, which is the home of Thursday night football tonight. You know, you talk about some scary from Halloween. Tonight's games. Gross. But he said that Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper face timed over the by week. And this is getting a lot of traction already on Twitter and stuff. What are your thoughts? I'm going to be. Honest about something I probably don't use FaceTime enough. When you and I record this we Skype so that's gonna face timing. But I hardly ever FaceTime. Somebody on my phone. I if you do maybe your kids, your wife, something like that. I never FaceTime call somebody from my phone, and so I guess number one your thoughts on FaceTime in general and number two. Is it cool or weird that Daqing Amari our face timing? Is it could it could anything could that be beneficial to any degree because people are? I like it. I do it all the time. I don't I don't do it when I'm driving. If I do do it when I'm driving. My wife's like you need to get to get the hell out to phone not FaceTime while you're driving, and please do not do that along with texting and driving. But I I like the -bility to be able to see someone depends on where you're at. Yeah. I mean, I think it's a great be Hickel depends on what you're doing. As far as him make it a point in press conference. I think it's probably. It's evidence that they really want to make this relationship speed up as fast as possible with him trying to grasp the whole offense. And I think if you're on that personal type of relationship because I think Dak is very personable player, and you meet him out in public. I mean, he's just a tremendous person. And he just he's great with the fans, great with charity and a lot of different things. So I think he's very genuinely receptive to really trying to get to know someone especially when it's a person such a more Kupa where they're bringing in. Here is a is a really just a Premera part hopefully in the future this offense. I think it's a great vehicle. Whether you're trying to study with each other or destroy trying to develop and maybe show things. I mean, I don't know on a on a whiteboard or whatever. Have our way they Mabel may be able to you know, to work that and especially if you're not in the same zip code, especially don't a buy wing 'cause you can't you can't spend time together. Like, you're able to again, the compliance and everything with collective bargaining. I'm not really sure of that. I think it's a great way to really this kind of depth each other and try to get as much time as far as the buildings relationship. Whether it's dismantling or as we get into physically during a practice because it's been what almost it'll be almost over two weeks when the Cowboys falling play again, and that's a long time and a longer time for a Mike Hooper because he was on a by the week before with the Oakland Raiders.

"They're like they're hooked. And they're like essence you mean? Your your kids have met ever had a frie- exit. Thank. But I understand that. Hey, see, I'm I'm a big egg sandwich guy. So I I'm totally down with the Friday. But well, congrats do your kids for the life. So it's officially game leak. The Cowboys play the Tennessee titans on Monday night their appearance on Monday night football this season that AT and T stadium. Jason Witten returning. We had mentioned this before I find this fascinating Monday will be November fifth when Jason win makes his return. And it won't be the one year anniversary of when Tony Romo. I call the Dallas Cowboys game. That's insane ironic is that it's insane. The way the world works. It really is. And it's hard to imagine it Tony romo's. Ben is a second year out of the National Football League. And again, this is you know, we don't talk enough about Jason Witten. I guess we do. But I'm sure it'll be the celebration just like Romo when he came back and made his first call here without a doubt. No, Jason Witten. We'll we'll get his respect. I'm sure. But again as you look at the time, and it flies by whenever thought that it'd been that long ago. You know, the anniversary of Tony Romo doing this. First call, and then you have is I guess BFF doing the same thing. Because last year when Romo return they had a video forum that was the big thing, and Jason Witten was the person who narrated it who would be your favorite to be the narrator for the Jason Witten video obviously it can't be Romo 'cause he's not playing. I would say the only guy, I guess, it'd be Sean Lee that'd be the only guy maybe one of the offensive I'm in. But I I would say, Sean Lee. Probably I'm trying to think of the history were you know, Jason what play fifteen years obviously with the same team. So I'm trying to think of who would be the next person there'd be that close to him. Maybe Sean Lee, but you got to go back and look at his history. It was a player. And that's a great question. It could be you know, some guys we don't ever talk about. But that's what tremendous question about who. I wonder if they let Dak doing you know, 'cause Dak had some moments with with Witton, obviously. And to your point. I think you're kind of saying well who's who's sort of the the mantle being passed to kind of thing. I think that stack index the quarterback he's the leader. I mean, all this stuff. I mean, I could see the Dax captain, you know, I think that that's that's one possibility. Well, it seems to me that they had this tremendous and had this tremendous marriage which Asia Whitmer, he's mister cowboy everyone when they think of mister cowboy they think of Bob Lilly. And then one a would be Jason Witten. So if you look at who maybe it'd be a candidate for that. I wouldn't wouldn't surprise me. Maybe the owner of the team. Maybe no Jerry Jones just seems to me they had this fond relationship because if you don't have Romo just sent to me just doesn't seem seem right? And I know this is not gonna come back and narrate it after the comments he may that might be a possibility. But that would be probably probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than him actually narrating his his Montaza video is it comes back. But. To me, it probably would wouldn't sound right. If it wasn't roaming romo's not available. And maybe they're able to do something where you actually was able to be able to narrate something like that. I wouldn't be surprised at. That's ultimately who does at this weekend. It would be cool. I think it'll be interesting. I think that this kind of a pressure to do it because they did it for Romo..
