"These guys want to be entities of their selves. They don't want to play second fiddle to Michael Jordan. Thank you for clarifying that because you wanted to make the that Michael Jordan style would work working any era and you just verbalize because now want to be that in and of themselves. Prescott ranked fourth overall in deep passing performance last season according to pro football focus and with the addition of CD lamb pro bowl focus. Adak appear even higher. This coming season so Shannon. Are you surprised a little surprised but Michael Gala with they're very good deeper epidemic risk last year that puts the push down the field? It's gift he got the name dinking back because if you look at his first two years give he was twenty second and then he went from weapon. Twenty second twenty second and sixteen seventeen to nineteen eight eighteen to third in. That's why wanted money. That's been improved. Y'All trying to give me a twenty sixteen in two thousand seventeen money. I mean twenty and twenty one beyond tight money so skip. I was a little surprised because you when you look at it you don't you don't be because BAE Pale behind so much. And what team were doing. They were preventing them from getting the big chunk. Plays let them nickel and dime. That's why at the end of the game. You see like twenty five thirty completions with four hundred yards because they were behind and people will give you all the underneath things but I guess when you look down when you break it all the way his first three games. He was pushing the ball. Down the field Michael Gallup had over eleven hundred yards so somebody had to get down the field so when you look at it he's improved. That gives them every year. That's that might not always go to the record because a lot of times we can see improvement but the record is not indicative of the improvement that a player has made. Sometimes a record is better but the player doesn't improve that have gotten better every year from his rookie year to innovate last year. We know that and so when you look at this data scare he's fourth and deep performance. That's a huge debt. That's one of the things that he and Tom Francis. Slide on over the Stephen and Jerry Jones. Take a look at that bill on your final point. I much agree with you to my chagrin. I'm dreading that I'm going to get to that in just a moment. I also agree with you. I was a little surprised by this. I know it goes deep ball. Pretty well but He is stats ranked him fourth last year. By the way that's five notches. Above Patrick Mahomes down at nine Carson wins Tenth Aaron Rodgers Eleven. Pretty great so I have to requests. I told you the other day you can no longer ever wear your goat mask again except on Halloween. Because it's over obviously Jordan is now conclusively proven to be better than Lebron James. So you go and ask on Halloween or if you go back to south Georgia to visit the farm want other than that now we get to the nickname that you hung on my guide Dak Prescott back and twenty sixteen dink and back. It's a it's a clever nickname but it no longer works. It is defunct. It is obsolete it is officially retired because he ranked fourth in the whole league in deep throwing. Okay now to the line. Ginny touched on as she opened this topic up pro. Football Focus said with CD LAMB added to the mix this year that Prescott could appear even higher on this list come next season. Yeah he could. Amari Cooper is still one of the best deep threats in pro football especially at home not so much away as you point out and you really the first to market with this. Michael Gallup is emerging as one of the top deep threats in football and my told you before the draft. Cd LAMB is that guy and he fell into the cowboys lap at seventeen and I told you the next day he's going to change life in Dallas. He will emerge ultimately as the best deep threat of the cowboy receivers. Even beyond Maury and Michael Gallup. Now you've got triple jeopardy defensive coordinators and don't forget you still got account for that twenty-one lined up back there running back who can also catch it on swing passes out of the Backfield and Blake Jar will be much better deep threat tied in again open tied in then. Obviously Jason. Witten was in his dotage last year in his last year. With the cowboys. So to your point now we've seen in recent weeks fourth in deep passing as high as third in. Mvp odds in in the Caesar's sportsbook and third in Rona world rankings of fantasy projections for next year fourth third. Well now to your final point todd France aged for Dak Prescott.

"The default style for new federal buildings or renovations of existing buildings think Roman and Greek design just like the White House joining us to talk about this is robin poker Banshees culture reporter for The New York Times wrote about this in the paper hi there hi how are you thanks M. K. certainly is very on Francis and attend host of DNA is here to talk about it too high hello model and all right robin let's begin with you what exactly does this draft order say so basically this is a draft of an executive order it is called making federal buildings beautiful again and it was spearheaded by the national arts society which is a nonprofit group that that the lead contemporary architecture has code in their own words created the built environment that is degraded and dehumanizing so this would rewrite the current rules that govern the design of office buildings that headquarters in courthouses in a federal building they cost over fifty million dollars and what do you want the current rule say I mean the current rules make it possible to have a variety of styles and it was these were established by in part on Daniel Moynihan in nineteen sixty two and the idea was that it was important in his words not to dictate exactly he said there should be a policy should be that their ship that the development of an official style must be avoided and designed not flow from the architectural profession to the government and not vice versa so this runs exactly counter to that and it basically talk in it's in an exasperated tone that that buildings have been kind of the styles have run amok to some extent that America American should feel proud of what those are my words with describing it but that Americans should feel proud of their public buildings that respect the call how architectural heritage of a region and that instead there there have been too many styles that inspire the Wilder meant for the province that is in the words of the drop instead of respect that is their mandate at whether or not the president goes for it remains to be seen but apparently it coming his way okay well Francis one person's repugnant says another person's vision of beauty absolutely and robin referred to that period up to nineteen sixty two when the when the doors opened on to really bringing in new styles in the cut Kennedy was such a great supporter of modernism modern modern architecture and all were you actually used in the Cold War to actually on the to send a message board of Merrick America's kind of openness is fascinating how architecture becomes used as a signifier of the state's ideals I'm in fact pulled neo classicism winds up forty on both sides you know the the White House in the other neo classical buildings of these people absolutely love is a representation of of of the American spirit you know those were originally chose and by the founding fathers because the style deeds symbolize the new nation self governing ideals models all in the ancient green eyes and rocker said yeah he's great ideals but then the very same style was appropriated by Albert Speer for Hitler to design should Manaia so the still also is associated with fascism so so you know it's it had to get the signifies a different depending on who utilizes the style and certainly that of modernism all old old buildings following bonus and have used architecture to express ideas for example the idea of transparency the democratic state might actually want to use a lot of gloss might actually is not what you would see in a neo classical architecture correct them Nicholas clock touch is known for being made of masonry is about balance it's about proportion it features domes colonnades columns but the point is sort of symmetry poise balance and the kinds of buildings that are being objected to tend sometimes don't necessarily put those qualities front and center they have all the qualities robin are there particular buildings that were built recently that perhaps spurred this yes and one of them that they do call out actually is the San Francisco federal building that was designed by Tom main he is it quicker prize winner which is kind of the Nobel Prize of architecture and it's been controversial from the start because it doesn't necessarily fit with a lot of other federal buildings in San Francisco or elsewhere on the other hand if you know one from architectural prices so there are those kind of within the established the architectural establishment who admired a great deal but I I think there is a you know there are two schools of thought here there is kind of the the Intelligencia as far as architectural profession is concerned and what they value and then there's just the general public and whether or not they think the building is unclear not in this case there were plenty of people who felt that they didn't belong it was jarring it and it also did have this kind of public plaza that was supposed to encourage people to hang out and gather instead after five PM after closing time turned out to be a magnet for the homeless so that building remains incredibly polarizing and it is one of those that this our report called out that said Tom main is quoted in our piece yeah we actually gave the final word in which he says that we're a society that's linked to openness of stock and that is always in the process of becoming an architectures obligation is to maintain this forward thinking stance so I think there is a lot of concern that if you actually start to mandate a design sensibility that's a dangerous road to go down right so it took about that'll because we you know Tom Francis yeah yeah we know that building pretty well and he's got several buildings here in Los Angeles and in fact you could say that a close cousin of the federal building in San Francisco asus Caltrans building in downtown LA I'm an absolutely the jury's out on Tom's buildings they are there was no question Tom's buildings all publications they absolutely are they do they have none of the qualities that I just described the classical architecture does they don't go for poise and balance they go for dynamism they go for a certain one Michaelis aggressiveness but you could call it there's a certain artistry with the way he uses concrete and steel lesser you know there's a death star quality to some of his but they're incredibly dramatic they'll they'll there's a tendency to use slightly off kilter forms at times you will find the sort of centralized axial sort of design when classicism so no question that polarizing but I do want to say that white near Caltrans is another federal building the new Los Angeles federal courthouse at some first you thought that well the elegance gloss cues that sits atop now completed the bottom is gonna Catherine Opie all work inside that in a way it's kind of a fast by the architects SO when very important in the history of American architecture modernists anyway thought building really does have poise it's also completely molten and those kind of buildings of the are we really going to say no you can't do buildings that that never got to get out the mobile the phone mall bowl which you often find these days and flower off the sauce with columns well so robin where are we with this this is going to happen and how many buildings with this act I mean I think it would depend on what the effect projects over fifty million dollars but what's interesting and we don't know what you know to what extent the president is aware of the draft is an existing leaning towards that although one would think that to some extent it is reflecting his own values and certainly you know he is a builder and so this does resonate with his own kind of wheel house but I think that what we see is that this is one of those debates that is kind of a perennial I I remember it you know a modern instilled in Goshen New York it was designed by Paul Rudolph that is brutalist and you know there's a lot of debate around brutalist buildings for example and the the bending of Columbia's graduate school of architecture talked about how preservation is not just about saving the most beautiful things it's about saving objects that are part of our history and so I I think that there is the feeling that this is going this is a healthy debate to have and that once you start to create a template for how buildings need to lock you you lose that that sense of kind of individuality and artistic expression that really reflect a generation in an era and so I think that there will be a lot of outcry if this goes through will start be covering and if it does because it will kind of create this much more uniform ecstatic that I think many people will push back against well certainly is a comment on our times robin poker ban is culture reporter for The New York Times Francis handwritten host of cater Lee's DNA design and architecture which you can hear on Tuesdays right here on KCRW at one thirty thank you both thank you Madeline thanks for having me okay joining us for a

"The Best Segments and discussions discussions skip Shannon. Let's go throughout this season. The cowboys have reportedly given deck Prescott several opportunities to sign an extension Dak.. DOC has reportedly been betting on himself hoping that his play would prove he deserves to be one of the highest payed quarterbacks. Yesterday Stephen Jones said the cowboys are still fully behind signed signing deck to a big extension. Take a listen. We have all the confidence in the world and back. We've never blinked on that and you know we've had a very aggressive offer out there air every step of the way and certainly understood that if even he stepped it up which I think is giving us every opportunity to have success. I'm as bullish about back. I've ever been well. Shannon has DAX gamble made of huge because God knows as long as I walk this field win. Lose to draw on Sunday if I walk up this feel healthy Jackpot because he knows the bottom line the floor. The basement floor is kirk cousins. Eighty four a million fully guaranteed. He's in the basement for. That's the lowest I would even think about considering I mean I told you all along I got a very reliable source. The reason why Dak Prescott had did not sign this contract. He was unwilling to give the Dallas Cowboys. They hometown cow. I told you that. Now it's hard for me to believe with scenario. Genie is their hair. Is The guy that has let's just say for the sake of argument. They got a hundred and ten million foot guaranteed on the table. He said you know what that's really a hometown discount. I'm Komo navigate the minefield of an NFL season. Where any given play marks leaving? My career could be over. I'm going to navigate that minefield to give you a hometown discount. Now the enemy coming out clear on the other side. I don't see that scenario. Skip now what you GonNa end up doing what you WanNa do skill franchising. You'RE GONNA create bad blood you know I got I got some man. I got what you won't because USA J. Everytime Jerry turns around he got a team that can compete the Super Bowl. But you only got that. If you believe you got your quarterback Steven Jones says I'm as bullish on Dacca's I've ever been you see. Why are you trying to pay you? Try to aw see I know what to do you Jerry. Have I spoken to work you. Could I heard you you oh. This was shattered. Sharp thing about you that this was you eh. This is what Oh Jerry says could do like ages they have guys all they do is they cut clipped what you say. Good about what Jerry said. On the radio what's Neva. The Seattle Radio what it says on undisputed. Yes lots of those cliff. Oh Hey Jerry Jerry. Stephen says we can't do that. Hey Qaeda tape drive other deejays. And that's what it is Stephen Jerry. He the franchise either bullet. He Brady years he's Yada Yada Yada skipped. That knows that he has. He's healthy. He's GonNa Walk Field on Sunday. I believe healthy dat new at worst case he was GONNA get thirty million a year. Because Kirk cousins got eighty four kirk cousins turned down. Ninety million remembers killing jazz. had ninety million bully guaranteed but he says I got a better chance to win in Minnesota so we took six million less guarantee not eighty four fully guaranteed. So there's that kirk cousins won't WanNA vision. I want to kirk cousins never rookie of the year. I've been rookie of the year. I made the pro bowl. Oh so he knows I got all this thing going in my favorite skip bayless so with that being said Dak Prescott in his. Guess what I'm looking at this number St call me late at night. Obviously take your phone ring. 'cause I got my phone on. Do not disturb but if the call it'll rattle through Steve this better be good. He's he's a sham. And did you notice that a recap and going forty percent in the last five years so the whole ENAC. Guess who else knows. They're todd who's DAX aged. I'm not giving you know hometown the town discount because you could assign him perform but you didn't so with that being said ask bayless current curve flawed cat number one. This is going to be between one ninety seven to one. They say the cowboys got like sixty seventy million dollars X.. I need all that plus another folded so skip bayless get ready. They say before anesthesia became they would get to boost up or you know country Western movie. They get your your on. Going hurt. Usually a bullet. Yeah Ah yes Jean by Jerry. I want you to buy down on. His towel is GonNa hurt. But but DAG extract. Some teeth with Novacaine uh-huh well. Gee I don't know if you've had my grandfather would apply not coming back anyway. But we talked about that J.. Hey Kimmy kimmy get between you papa. Legs here back. They know the canes scale and alcohol he takes them pliers the flyers so Jerry Joey get back contract. Thank you how about you. Jerry is going to hurt But just close your eyes and just put your name. Jerry was Jerry Jones. They need Jerry Jarrell. They call Jerrell Wayne Jones junior right now because they call him Jerry Journal you name Jearl Wayne Joan a deck fill out the contract. You like one hundred and twenty million dollars guaranteed Baylor at the time was signed. I want our audience to know that what I just heard from across the table is the height of hypocrisy. The very absolute mount all Everest of hypocrisy just got spewed all over this table because every game of any magnitude that Dak Prescott played this football season for my Dallas cowboys. You gave him an F.. For his performance except one bazaar editorials Detroit gain if they barely hung onto win at at Detroit. Exemple Jeff Driscoll. And he's got an a plus that game. Don't don't ask me. I don't know I can't well. He played good but he got a flat out. F He tried to do F- minuses for his performance at Philly on Sunday. So this is the same man that he is now pounding his side of the death. Saying you you gotta pay top dollar hypocrisy at its peak broker. It makes no sense whatsoever if you would stand by your conviction that he's a lousy quarterback you've told me he's average at best if he's average at best they should cut bait and move on. Because you don't WANNA sustain mediocrity awkwardly in Dallas you you don't want to commit for five years to mediocrity the way the risk and said we're not going to commit to thirteenth cousins. They're you're saying no. They said no what that was the right idea. Pick in Israel. At least you get tipsy. But that's not the thing those get be getting paid is not about being good about being free and then risk is about to be free agent. Well he also could get franchised. I'm pretty sure that's what's going to do it because I'm here to tell you as much as I love my man Dak Prescott. He lost leverage this year. He lost lost his gamble his agents. That you've talked to or deemed with or whatever you a slap. Hey lost their gamble. Because I know Oh Jerry Jones inside and out and he is the ultimate prisoner of the moment. He is the prisoner of the momentum of the moment of the public opinion of the moment and right now the public is sitting back. Saying what the hell just happened to the quarterback in the football team they are seven and eight Dak has lost all of his negotiating momentum a year ago he had it because they were on fire heading into the playoffs and he outplayed Russell. Wilson Wilson a home playoff game that is momentum. Jerry's like give me much. I'm ready ready to sign it Jerry. Jones Junior. I'm ready but now he's like I don't know because because Dak Prescott I'm going to be objective about this. I three years in this league led the National Football League in fourth quarter. Comeback Victories led the whole league. This year he has zero and this year I must admit it. He's missed one. Throw a game in all those key games. That help cost the game. Are you big argument now. But when I said that the time he was doing it you know I've been saying for a month. I say he makes lots of throws he's fifth in Qbr which is really good so he's top-five five statistics and he's second in yards in total asterik doesn't check. Okay go ahead keep on going. But let's look at rue what happened in New Orleans. It's the first game. They lost the Sunday night game and they lost twelve detain. Here's the first throw. He rolls out. He's got Randall. Cobb just wide open and he just missed he just again. He's rolling in throwing across body and he just threw it a little touch just to just touch. This is the difference in playoff no playoffs if he makes make that throw. If it's six inches back toward Randall cobb fingertips and he hangs on. I think they win that game. They lost twelve to ten right. Okay then we go to the table Von play. What about your? Let's do the play if we can. There's Randall call play. This is gone and and again he made a lot of great throws in dry but but he's running. What three yards free? If you drop it into his chest can you score. He can still fly tape on fly. Okay it's just one throw in the game one really bad throw. That help cost the game. Because then you get to go to to force overtime right. Okay and how about this. How about the game at the jets? He thought his tail off. WHO's a warrior in that game? He didn't have either the tackles. And here's the past Jason Witten and mark is all over him. I give you that he fouls him on the play but the passes off what you said. At the time you said it was in the past. I I but I'm just being objective. I'm showing what Jerry's going to look back at. Say if you get the ball up on Jason's hands. Maybe he shields better Jason. Waste what to sixty as you just said. I'm the Mount Everest of hypocrisy. Now on the Mount Everest of object Dona carries. Think Tilly wine. Tell you what what is happening right here. I can't defend anymore. I told you yesterday. Missed the throat a table tonight. I'll bring it up all kinds of throws. He had a really good year who he had a good year except for the throw in the game. Now the vikings game it was no no fault of their measure. Question did demarcus because lower take a pay cut has the markets that you keep talking about Zeke. Seems like He. He got ninety million and he's running in Kabul saying who's the highest paid player in Dallas. I was cowboy history okay. They got their money for how they played the last two year old. But that's not how you do it. You base contract on what you don't tell me that because because tell Jerry that Jerry thought with Jerry Bailey that the markets north just scratched the surface and moving forward. He was gonNA give us bang for our buck same. Same thing with Zeke. I what you don't know when you get a specially an easycall Elliot. He's had all kinds of issues off the field when you give him fifty million guaranteed and you say it's over because he's thinking that's my last big contract. Yeah this is it. Fifty million guaranteed is a whole lot of money. And you lose your desire you luger hung out. You don't run hungry home. He's not running on DRI on sorry he lost about. You brought it up okay. Democracy Lawrence was playing for a contract last year and he was UNBE lockable about half a year. And you say that's a pro bowl pass rush. Okay how many times you've seen that is does your. What did I took the day off his name because he's no he doesn't play defense? That Preska home. If I'm not mistaken Dak Prescott like a hundred yards short of Tony. Romo's record a right. So he goes. I got more passing yards than Tornado troy than the hall of Fame Roger Staubach in the hall of fame. Now I got more passing yards in a season than any of those guys yet. Stephen Jones is GonNa sit across the desk and say have you been watching undisputed Shannon Sharpe is giving you an F. for seven games this year having and that's when Tom Francis Excuse me Stephen with skill Betas given my guy a plus..
