Bill O'Reilly Responds to NFL Plans for Social Justice Decal Stickers on Helmets
"For the O'Reilly Update Message of the day the National Football League damaging itself by getting political League officials, owners, players are compiling a list of names to be used on helmet decals. Including George Floyd. The program, alas, throughout the entire season. Commissioner Roger Goodell recently apologized for his opposition to players taking a knee during the national anthem in seasons past. Saying We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and now encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League believe black lives matter. Well, most Americans believe black lives matter, but they also believe police lives matter. 10 players put a decal of slain police officers on their helmet, Mr Goodell It's not Then your league is a political organization, not a sports franchise. In 2016. The NFL rejected Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who wanted to wear stickers on his helmet honoring the five police officers. Slain in Dallas. According to league policy then and now quote Players generally must present an appearance that is appropriate to representing their individual clubs and the National Football League. The term uniform is used in this policy applies to every piece of equipment worn by a player, including the helmet. So if you were banning In the past all slogans on uniforms. And you're going to change it now You've got to change it for everybody. By agreeing to social protests on the field. The NFL will anger many fans. You will not support the product. That means less revenue for the lead. Let me spell it out. Fans can't go to many of the games this year. So the merchandise the shirts, the jackets off the teams is the primary source of revenue. Well, I'm not buying any merchandise if the NFL bans police officers from being honored I'm not going to do it. But far more important is the message. That the NFL is apparently sending America's an unknown fair country. Okay, we need to improve sane people agree, but it's all one side now. So I don't believe this is going to work out well for the National Football League, the N ba Major League baseball of his starts. There should be no politics on Game day. That's easy. No politics on Game day. If the players want to talk about social justice on for that, then come on my programs any time. But not on games during the week with the press conference is sure no problem

"Eli was incredible. But his his overall legacy took a tiny little dent. That not even just a little bit of Greece on the trophy. You know what I mean from holding onto long whereas Romo his whatever trophy he did have is as shiny as it will ever be. An whitten's is just a little bit more scuffed up enough all that make sense. Well first of all I think Eli. Manning was a quarterback and telling her on. I think a lot of people on this matter you but look. I think there's one there's one thing on an mentioning and really. This is the reason why I say that is because I look at the Super Bowl to super bowl titles and you know his consistent. Yeah he wasn't he didn't have Romo legs. I mean he could improvise but you look at his numbers law. Do not a nice career and so I think that. That's what's your measured by you. Look at both Eli Manning Tony Romo and maybe you know is more voted with Rama. Because of what he's done in Broadcasting Grid. I that's a great argument. That's a great question to me. I had saline manning just because of what he's achieved and that's one of the super bowl twice and being MVP. So how can you not take that away from ally manning you use the word right now and to get back to Roma Wooden? I think Romo's post football. Career is more vogue. That's if if you if you WANNA be vogue like you know and my point I guess. My original point and this was a fantastic. I told you I wanted to go deep but Whitton had it he was. He took a step towards vogue. You know what I mean and in coming back and because it's not just like you know the cowboys were bad last season in. What was his return? They were really bad. You know what I mean. And his Buddy Jason Garrett didn't get fired but you know it wasn't asked to return so I mean he came back for one of the worst most awkward Clunky left-footed seasons that we've ever seen and so that's kind of his image. Now you know what I mean and it became that in a large part because he return. But you know it is what it is but it's fascinating and it's fascinating that now at a point where he's kind of openly having to do some pr to get back on the team. It's crazy well. I'm going to say right now. Jason won't be back next year. I just don't I don't yeah I'm calling. I mean I can give me odds on that but I mean I think that's pretty good two to one odds and he's not to be back. I mean maybe not as a player maybe some type of position if he wants to be part of the organization. Oh yeah that's without a doubt but I always feel like there's three dudes it will always be. I'm going to say Jerry Jones. You know the top three. It'll be Jason witten. That's when that's emmitt Smith and Michael Michael. Irvin knows three of sheriff. That's that's Jerry's three favourite kids right. They're busy free favorite sons right there beside the Sunday but Iraq. It's my Mala Metaphor for my. You know what I think about the relationship so but yeah I see no reason to bring Jason went back. I mean it's business and he even mentioned it. The understands the business part of it so I don't see that happen. I did not see when being a cowboy next year. Well this was a good chats. Hopefully enjoy very deep. I feel like I got some good therapy today. I learned a lot and we talked about Batman We talked about You know A lot of different aspects of the show that I've learned the depths of personality wise for I make sure that up when we tweet out the podcast. Well Tony is wise. That's right well. What do you back next week? Everybody have a good one. I be enjoyed. This was the seven five Oh and..

"Because he loves Jason as his son but he just needs to get out of the way and just let things is the locker room. And everything just weren't you know evolve in work or whatever and maybe that's 'cause I don't know what kind of leader Jason. Witten was last year because I didn't really think when I look at Jason Witten. Yeah he leads by example in the field but what kind of leader is he mean? Was he able to feel comfortable about being leader because he thought he wanted to come back and he was like stepping on people's toes again away? What kind of leaders Jason? Widnall as opposed to when he was in his prime of his career. That's the biggest question. What can he bring to your team. So I don't disagree with anything. They're saying I just and I keep using the word amazing as I am amazed that were these are fair questions. You know what I mean. And that's just it's proof. The time comes for us all you know what I mean like. Everybody reaches a point. Where like they're no longer the hottest ticket in town. That's that's Jason with ms so much talked about his his quote unquote leadership last year about how he was going to take a step back. You know he didn't want to come in and take over what what they had built in the year without him You know there was a story. I don't even remember who wrote it and everybody wrote it but I will say it wasn't a whole lot last year wasn't no but so you know the corner. Lockers in the star are reserved for the leaders right. Because you know everybody's got to walk past the corner and Witton had one of those lockers before he retired Zack. Martin took it when he left and and he didn't get that locker back because he didn't want to come in and just you know over- overstep himself. He wasn't a captain last year. You know what I mean like. Those are small things but I mean to answer the question. Those are the things that we can see without being in the locker room. I do think so At his event on Tuesday night this was one of his quotes he said. I've been in constant communication with Stephen and Jerry along the way. I think it's my hope. I think it's our hope to kind of have those talks very soon after the combines and before free agency and then he goes on and on and on and I think. I think that I'm speaking for a lot of fans here And I'm not sure that I even feel this way but I think a lot of people right now. Tony are saying. Why are you talking to Stephen and Jerry? Because to Tony's point this should be Mike McCarthy decision this. This should not be Stephen Decision. And I know that this is a personnel matter and in Stephen Jerry in Wilno Klay run the personnel department. But I mean in Mike McCarthy's first year. Shouldn't he be the ultimate decision maker on on somebody like this? This is this is not just an average player. This player that has a large presence in the locker room. And so I think that I think that part of the reason because there's so much as we mentioned why people Sort of fell out of love with window to put it that way but I think part of it is is he is the onfield representation of Jason Garrett and I think that people are just people want to move on. People want to move on from a lot of things. I want to move on from Jason Guards. The head coach. They want to move on from the way the cowboys have been for the last ten years and the reality is that a lot of that has been Jason Witten and so I think that people just kind of roll their eyes it. Then say man wouldn't get get out of here because you're you're the guy you're part of the group that still goes through Stephen Jerry. I want somebody I want. People that are in a group that goes through the head coach. Mike McCarthy I mean by that at all yeah I mean I think it's a good point because then you create divisiveness air because now he's already and favorite. Yeah Yeah So. He's already sending Lama go talk to. I'M GONNA go talk to my dad. I should say that. But it's your site though perception of a pan like okay. Well I'M GONNA go a disciplined. My kids my kids. Don't come talk to me. They go talk to mom our whoever whoever's going to give him the answer they wanna hear right so in a way. That's that's that's Jason Win. I'M GONNA go talk to Steven in a jury and you can undermine the dude. That's in charge down Mike McCarthy and so I don't think because ultimately if it might McCarthy decides I don't want to bring Jason with back because I'm GONNA move on. My offense is different. You know I wanNA tied in. Can create opportunities can create yards after catch. That should be his decision. Not You know. Not Jerry. Jones or Stephen is Stephen Jones. Are you know those guys? It's an ultimate the head coaches so if I'm Jerry and Stephen unless let it ride let free agency comic as a free agent okay. Jae-shin a will dress in June or closer to training camp if you gladden and try to find another job more power to you in. Maybe we'll dress it at a later day. That's the way I would handle the situation rank us. It's going to get in the way of. I think we're GONNA see. Don't you think this also mentioned nepotism? Don't you think this is going to be another perception for the fans and everyone else here we go again? You know. This is your dividing Jason Witness going. As you mentioned going to opt to Jerry Jones's Steven John Not to the guy. The new guys in charge. I think we all want to see the guy that they just hired. Have all all be able to make all the shots call all the shots totally agree with you and complain on both everything you said and I want to be clear. I don't it's not that I don't love. Blake Darwin or or think that Jon can be very good but the high bomb Blake Jar. One is very high and and the reason I bring that up. Is I think people you know. People have have sort of hyped themselves up on Blake John because they truly believe so much that Jason wouldn't stopping that progress and the whole thing kind of creates that. I don't want to call it a facade because Blake. Darwin has been good in in different moments. But you mentioned it's kind of like I'm GonNa Call My dad. Jason Wins. What thirty seven. Thirty eight man. He's he's thirty seven thirty eight years old right right man in his twenty's course is going to be a part well and so you mentioned that it's kind of like. I'M GONNA call my dad. I'm GonNa add to that analogy and it kind of feels like I wasn't in a Frat in college you know and so I I don't have this exact experience I mean other people do and you know people talk about it kind of feels like the guy in the Frat like you know whose dad was like a long time member. You know. That's the day. Yeah just I'm GonNa Come Dad. I'M GONNA call my dad. That has an impact you know. Your daughters are proud razorback. Jason Wins at Arkansas Right now. Say I wanted to call Jerry. You Watch out you know. Because he knows he's going to call it he's GonNa fix this and so there was a tweet from the reporters at the event the daas. News's David Moore. He tweeted that Jason Win. This is his tweet on twitter. David Moore Damon. Jason Witten has met with. Mike McCarthy wants in that meeting. He hadn't made a final decision to play once he did. He got word to McCarthy. That is where things stand. See this to me is also an. I don't mean to say this. Why BECAUSE JASON? Witten deserves every opportunity to consider what he wants to do with his life. Because that's a big decision that they want to keep playing football. You WanNa be a college that you wanted to go do. Tv whatever. And I respect that but if I was Mike McCarthy I'd be saying Dude in our first meeting I mean like I'm not. I don't have time to wait if I'm Mike McCarthy. I just waited a year. I did the Jason Win thing. I took a year off and I'm moving. I'm going and so if you've got any indecision I've gotta move on if I'm Mike McCarthy and so that to me adds I use the word selfish earlier maybe. The word is greed. Maybe you know maybe whatever it is but Jason Wins like Oh guys You know I don't even know that this is true but the perception is I think from a lot of people which is why they're so worn out on him. The perception is that witness is taken his time dragging his heels and he wants to make everything about Jason Win. And everybody's saying screw that can be Blake. John you're not bad and I think you're being just a little tad harsh about being so office because it be because as I mentioned R. J. is when you're done you're done. I mean there's no I guess well not for Jason Win. Because he came back nothing here so forgot step on the brakes but the duo again. I mean I think the best thing that could happen for Jason is last year. Yes I think is Alaska rations to come back. This team has all the pieces in place to run survey. Didn't happen okay. And with that I think we saw that. His skills had diminished. And for God to you know his age I mean it's easier for the cowboys I look dude. You're you're mentally for eighteen years. I mean if you're not you're not. Tom Brady drew brees. And I'm sorry you know. It's totally different so production. Everything and in look I think again. It's very hard to discuss this discount. Reality and just kind of look yourself Man I'm done. I can't do this more. And that's all Argh now I guess he could still do it right. And you still think that you had something left to offer people's telling you not. I mean that's a hard thing even Jason Win. I mean look at happened to Emmett. Smith at happened to Michael Irvin a happen to Troy Aikman amd all the great supplied the game. You know this is kind of unique situation with Jason Win. Because everyone loves him I mean. He does so many great things community. He's the Golden Child Master and I agree. I think that that's may not that. You want to give him a little. Bit more nepotism in be more loyal but. I mean certainly I mean. The Guy has done everything he needs to do. And it's it's been pretty much the same. I mean you look up. The you know the the the perfect professional football player that off of build it does things right. You know you look at look you google that in. Ucf pitcher Jason Wooden. He fits that description. I agree and I certainly. I mean I've never been there. You have which is why. Your perspective is so invaluable. I mean I have to imagine letting go of anything as difficult and let go letting go of something that has eight sucks man right right. Which is we've just loved brings me to my final point and look at somebody. Trust me but sports anything else man. It's it's it catches up to you but so everybody that plays football wants to win the Super Bowl right like you WANNA be. That guy in your. You Know Tony Casillas. Two time superbowl champion. That's something that follows you everywhere and I got imagines pretty guests and you know I mean you you also played with a lot of guys it also you know got too expensive. It's all of your lies and that's really awesome and amazing thing but I'm sure you know you know a lot of guys who were really really really good. They didn't get to do that. And you know that really sucks and so I think that if you cannot be the guy that win the Super Bowl I think the and nobody wants to be that guy but I think the next best thing to be in the eyes of fans is the Guy. The team letdown right. If you can't be the guy that won the super bowl you wanna be the guy that team letdown and the best example of this and I'm not at all taking away from anything he did. He had an amazing career in the ring of honor. And all that jazz but Tony Romo. Tony Romo's career. We've talked about this. His legacy is elevated. I mean pe- people make and he was very good but people may come out to be even greater than he was the author the legend of it all like. Oh Man if Jerry had just surrounded realme with more talent if if Jerry had gotten Romo a defense he would have won super bowl is you know whatever and demarcus. Ware was kind of that guy but then he went his own super bowl onto that kinda helped his own personal narrative. But Tony Romo is is the classic. The team. Let him down right. And that's again if you can't get the superbowl that's a pretty good thing to be because people will always make you out to be better than you ever even were out of loyalty because they loved you as a player and as C. I I gotTA disagree with that. I don't think Romo ever lived up to the expectation of being the guy. He's got the great numbers and nothing. Against what Tony's Don sure Tony's going to be known more for his broadcasting when this is all said and done and what are you gonNA fill? Because he's you know he didn't didn't punch a ticket to the Super Bowl. I mean you know. I don't think people think about that. I think Tony Tony is put up. Great numbers is a hall of fame quarterback one way. But here's the thing my point of it is is when you talk about the Super Bowl. Got Off track a little bit. There's two things I look at into. Maybe it's just me because I you know I don't have one I mean I don't have. I don't have a goal Jack and I never will but I do have the opportunity and I had the resume they plan to submit. Also if you're not gonNA be able to be a pro football hall of Famer to be able to put the super bowl the championships on your resume and planning and be a factor is is pretty.
NFL free agency: Reactions to Greg Olsen's deal with the Seattle Seahawks
"About reaction on Greg Olsen signing with the Seattle Seahawks that's too bad I I would like to see in the bills get him I think it would help their tight end group I think would help their offense overall if it was me I would have figured yeah Seattle would have a good shot because they've got the best chance to to when compared to the other two teams would you offer him as much as Seattle Morris Seattle or just say yeah that's fine so I think that was a good offer I mean that's a legit I think that's fair if I don't know the bills offered him but a one year deal seven million five F. guaranteed I think it's very fair offer I mean I really would have gone I would like to that at him I would have gone crazy and got into a bidding war over him but I thought it would have been a nice piece for the offense and I was thinking I don't think you know they I'm wondering if they're going to look in free agency for tight and since I work I feel like this was the new Greg Olsen and this might have been like a one shot deal like Hey across okay Greg Olsen we like him let's showing get like I don't think they're going after the free agent market I don't think they're going to spend big money on hunter Henry Austin Hooper if they hit the market the other guys out there are guys like Eric you Braun I I you know who's had one good year in his career I saw today Jason Witten I think said he still wants to play Tyler I for I believe it's going to be a free agent but you know you said injury issues in Cincinnati feel like Olson might have been like a specific one time you know we're okay would Dawson Dr okay with what time the Sweeney my guess is Lee Smith is back as blocking back and Tyler Kroft but also it was like a special scenario we're like okay let's make a play for this guide I don't think they're going to go into the fridge market for a Titan

"Seven two nine three seven seven antics. We WanNa know who could lease forbade super bowl. So let's get some expert. Take on this. We're GONNA get some expert analysis on this in the Super Bowl overall from Dallas cowboys tight. End Jason Witten. I love Jason Talking to a Jason. Wouldn't we appreciate your time for joining us on the Shell Pennzoil performance. Your mind. Who Player coach doesn't matter anybody in this game who can least afford to to have a bad super bowl? Patrick mahomes there's no question I mean most guy on the field and you know they need them the most so To me that that's the question of the day. I mean the the forty niners. They've shown that they can minimize Garoppolo By their ability to run the football all and so. I don't think that although I think is a really talented quarterback I think his teen has other ways to move the ball and score points whereas Kansas City. Patrick Mahomes is the leader behind and all that well Jason. You've worn the player hat and the analyst hat so you know amused me a second from the analyst I because I feel like we spent so much time just destroying troy Andy Reid. Whenever things don't go well isn't there some level of Mahomes it's insulated because we'll blame Andy Reid for whatever goes wrong? Well yeah but I mean look these type of games James. I mean you know. Coaching is important but look they're not going to reinvent the wheel with a plan you know they're gonNA. They're GONNA do what they've done all year to get to this point You know they haven't spent the last two weeks thinking about Reinventing new play or or a new concept. I mean you're GonNa have some wrinkles off of it. But they studied studied the tape. We're gonNA focus on the things that they do. Well that's what makes college in Andy such coaches and the ability to adjust in game. That's what you have to do as the head coach. Is that when you try playing these type of games. We're talking to Dallas cowboys tight. End Jason Witten on the Shell Pennzoil performance. I'm abroad shell. V power natural plus premium gasoline. Wouldn't what are you looking for in the first ten to fifteen minutes of this game to figure out how guys are handling the moment city side. I WANNA see offensively. How how they're going to Account for this this front for that that the forty niners have not just because they're really good but the other thing is Kansas City. A lot of what they do is off that. RPO Will the run pass option and the ball comes out quickly and it comes out from different angles. I mean I think that's what makes Taisho good. And she's got that Aaron Rodgers Brett Farve. I like where can throw it from Auburn. Parts of his body But the one of the things would San Francisco's from four or not not just because they're really good pass rushers but also that they have there so tall and big they get their arms up so I wanna see how they account for those guys and then vice versa for San Francisco when they're running the football you know. Kansas City's he's going to account for a lot of guys in the running game. And so who is it that besides the play action game. How do they create big chunk? Place 'cause you gotTa Assume Kansas City is going to score points. So are you going to be able to combat that on San Francisco and Count Shanahan's side to say okay. We're going to run the ball or we're going to control the time of possession that's great but where the point is GonNa come from on that side okay with. I can't talk to a phenomenal tied. Emma Dot asking about tight ends two of the best in this game Kelsey and kill. Who Do you think is going to have the bigger super bowl all guys you know I love to give you a string up answer? Here's what I'd say I think the best weapon for each each other teams and so it's hard to. I mean whichever offense gets rolling that tight end GONNA probably have a chance to be the. MVP The game. Because I think they are the number one. Weapons affects both really good different in the way of you know kills by a little bit better blocker and the play action game is so important where he finds his success whereas Kelsey he just on the same page with Mahomes and so he just has that weird way of finding the Saul spot finding that area to get the first down and Mahomes is looking for him. Let me have three touchdowns two weeks ago. They're all three of them. Were all script place so I think they're going to have a lot of action. I don't know that we've had a super bowl. Where the tight end? It'd be feature feature like this one will be for both teams so obviously Miami's decided the super bowl but everybody's here is is here for other reasons too. I know you're working with somebody. Tell us a little bit about it. Yeah I'm here with courtyard by merit. And their official hotel the NFL and they've got a really neat experience if they're gonNA share them with the NFL fans They're having a courtyard. Super Foale sleepover.

Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though
Cowboys notebook: Jason Witten makes his return to the football field
"Last night the cowboys beat the rams and tight end Jason Witten got on the field after a year in the Monday Night Football both Dallas coach Jason Garrett was just one of those guys the card to be reliable a great understanding the game for a quarterback family and it comes up and comes up big crunch time start over over again it was good to say about him playing football kind of fun playing football and get some
2019 NFL Draft prospects
"We're about three weeks from the NFL draft. It's been an interesting off season. If you were bears fan last season. It was interesting the bears gone out and done a lot of things this off-season than to talk about that and much much more. We bring in our guy NFL writer, Eric at home. Nice enough to jump on and Eric tonight. Everything's good. Yeah. It was just thinking these last three weeks for the drafter get a feel like any turn into here that always does every single year seems like it takes a long time here in Chicago. We've always been interested in the draft. Because usually the bears were bad a high draft pick. And now they were smart last year and traded pigs got gotta Khalil Mack. And now they've not picking until the third round unless they make a move. But I mean, I think it seems like all their other moves have been in you know, in free agency and bringing. Players in. So it's not nearly the draft excitement here in Chicago. Like, it was when just imagine if the draft was here, and it was no bears draft pick for you know, for the first day and a half down. Admit what difficult I think it would be legal to do that. The office. Like, let's about this. The bears probably will make their selection around nine o'clock. I think on Friday night. So you settle in. You know, maybe, you know, get some food get something to eat whatever it's going to be a while. I don't think they'll be moving up. They don't have a lot of picks. So yeah, it's gotta be patience is virtue for bears fans outside of kicker because kickers not real answer. When you talk about to what's the biggest need for the bears. Hang into the draft. It's a great question. You know, I think it probably, you know, I think what they did themselves. A lot of a good favor by refunding airless, you know, and just you know for a one year deal. Right. We know he's the third outside guy. But still it just eliminated one spot that you have to kinda reach four and not reach four. But you know, have to hope that somebody is at that position waiting for you in the draft. So it probably slimmed down to two maybe three or four positions. I would think running back has to be on that list. You know, I personally would like to see. Them. Get more death on the offense of line. And I think the secondary either corner or safety would be a spot they can look at and their few defensive action, the strap that I think could play, you know, cover the flight and also places safety. So there's some versatile guys in this great year for either position a corner safety, but it's deep enough where they could possibly get somebody there. So I would just, you know, spit balling kinda Dr throwing I would say those it's likely that they could be picking one of those three spots that eighty seven toys have you ever seen as I'm asking the question. I know we've all seen it. But have you? I was gonna ask you if you've seen the situation where teams running back like Jordan Howard performed relatively well and was light by many people. And but basically the head coach had no use form at this point. And that's why they ended up moving them. Yeah. I mean, obviously, totally different situation from what happened with Levy on bell. You know, those are the exceptions to the rule, but you know, it is one of those. Position where if you're not one of the elite top, you know, five or six guys in the league at your spot. You know, there's only so much teams willing to kind of sink into that dishing. I know that there have been back strapped in the top. You know, five ten picks several years, it's not gonna have this year. But it's happened. A lot in recent history or often more often than I would've expected. I know Todd Gurley got his big deal. I know other people have gotten pretty good money. That's dishing bell sign this off season. But there's a drop off, you know. And so I think if you're not special, you know, that maybe are deemed expendable depending on the system. And so you know, I can see both sides why they moved on. And I think they feel like with Mike Davis Torri Cohen, they add one more the draft. You know, maybe Ryan dollars trading Kampe preseason hero again or something like that. But you know, we'll see I think they will try to add at least one more. And then maybe an underrated free agent to add on top of that. Daryl. Patterson is. Is an interesting guy. But he's been an interesting guys come into the league. Other people have found out ways to use them and the patriots even lined him up in the backfield as a running back. Do you expect Matt Nagy to do that? Also, not only just swing passes and give them in and around and things like that. And also given the ball out of the running back position. Yeah. It's a great option. I think you know, the patriots really the first team to really unlocked at running ability. I mean like you said when he was in Oakland, you know, other places he was running those kind of gadget runs and things like that. But I mean, they line them up as a tailback and got buffalo game was it was crazy to watch. He had twenty something carries. And so, yeah, it was it was a strange thing to think about you know, a six to two hundred twenty pound receiver who could run like the wind lining up kind of power back. But he can do it. I think that really added to the appeal. He's the perfect Matt Nagy player. They'll run kick off, you know, he could be a wide receiver if you need to. I don't think he's more than. A number four. But still, you know, having that deeper out option is important. And I think that's you know, that kinda speed if Taylor Gabriel is out there, they may not have that exact replica that so it's different version of speed. And then as you said we saw last year that he can be running back, you know, in cut a break glass in case for -mergency situation. Seahawks quarterback. Russell Wilson wants a new deal. He gave the Seahawks April fifteenth as a deadline to get that deal done. Do you think he gets done in what type of deal? Do you think Russell Wilson who get from the Seahawks? So here's my hypothetical question here. Like what they let's say if April sixteenth by parents diversity, by the way. Let's. Let's say April sixteenth. They offer him. The richest TV deal of all time. You're gonna say oh sorry. The deadline. Hey, understand that this thing happened in January. We didn't really hear about it until very recently. But meeting his, you know, giving them a deadline, but you know, it just doesn't make a lot of stints. It's not a if something magical happens on that calendar day, not as some kind of contract, you know, bonus kicks in or anything else that would prevent them from getting this thing done, or if there's some kind of you know, league deadline or something like that. It's not July fifteenth and the franchise player, so it's just one of those kind of subtle threats from the from the Wilson camp saying, hey, don't forget about me, baby. You know, I still want to get my deal. I still want to get this thing done. You know, there's an opportunity for him to really cash in. And also kind of hold them hostage a little bit. I suspect it there's a good chance that gets done. But for months now there have been whispers that you know, maybe the Seahawks aren't quite prepared to pay him. What what a lot of people think he's worth it would at least entertain the idea of. What could we get you know, trade for him? Just theoretically, what would he get you know, is worth three first Thursay? We're still talking about a thirty thirty one year old guy. And there's still a handful of teams that really badly need that franchise different speaking quarterback. So I I don't know. I still think it's gonna get done 'cause that's city loves them. Even if a lot of past teammates were the biggest Russell Wilson fan. They know how much he means for the team another couple minutes with NFL writer, Eric at home and Erica week or so ago, rob gronkowski decided to retire. A lot of people on Twitter and everywhere else going, okay. The best tight end. Maybe you'll ever play the game has retired. Who's the best tight end in the NFL? Now who do you like? Yeah. I mean, that's a great question. To kinda depends what you want. So if you guys can do with grunk did which is being impact players blocker, and as receiver, you know. And and think about all the calls that were made against gronk over the years. He was kinda like the Cam Newton of the tight end position like say what that's not interference. Though, he just, you know, even with that work in Gascony was so special. I love the fact that Travis Kelsey can be as dangerous, you know, the last couple of years he's actually been a better receiver than gronk. No question about it. But he's not nearly the blocker that he is. You know, we see some of these young pass catching tight. I mean, George Kittle out in San Francisco at times has flashed like he could be the best to way tight in the league because he blocks his tail off. He's got great receiving chops. And really the only thing that's kind of held them back injuries. I don't necessarily think you can have a long career. So this might be one of those debate that we kinda have for years. I don't think there's any one guy that fills that checked off all the boxes like like gronk did. And he had injury issues too. But still when he was out there. There's really no doubt. And I don't know that that that one guy even though there are some great blockers. It's about staying receivers you rarely see both. Do you think that Jason Witten can still be productive? I don't know man this. I wanted to I know Jason Witten the player, it was outstanding. He was just so consistent day in and day. I knew what you're going to get from. He was probably, you know, he was unsexy version of gronk and that he could block and catch fast but a year off his age. I know they say they're going to come in just and all that. His feeling this thing could kind of turn south, and we could see 'cause he looked slow by the end when he was out there last time. He just wasn't the same guy. Eric, we appreciate jumping for few minutes. We'll hopefully those go to slow the next couple of weeks. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Enjoy the run up to the draft guys. Thanks. They got home jumping on talking NFL. Like Whitten wasn't good at the end. Then like fancy players, look like, wait. Hold on. Really? Like, what is she some Witten really gonna bring to the Cowboys? Here's a guy wanted to bring up to you. Because this is a guy that I thought when he got to the NFL was going to have a bigger impact than he's head and OJ Howard at the tight end. Okay. Because what we saw in college. We thought. Okay. The when this guy gets here Dowd using is just because the quarterback situation and the problems have had do you think he can still become a dominant tight end in this league? Maybe because he did it in college. And you assume that that body type in his speed is is ability to get down field. And you know, James Winstons been not very good. No. And I think a lot of people misread what Tampa Bay is doing. I don't think he's there for the long haul. I think Tampa Bay if they could find someone else to be their quarterback. They would go with that person. Yeah. So whether or not it's trying to find a quarterback in this year's draft. Or or or planning for the future? Elsewhere. But like I don't trust him as Winston do.
Rob Gronkowski set to retire from football after nine seasons with the Patriots
"But rob gronkowski will not survive in the two thousand nineteen oh that sounds really morbid. But you know, what? I mean, he posts a very emotional Instagram message with a photo of himself holding the Vince Lombardi trophy in the air with confetti. Of course, he says it all started at twenty years old on stage at the NFL draft. When my dream came true. And now here I am about to turn thirty and a few months with a decision. I feel is the biggest of my life. So far, I will be retiring from the game of football today. And he goes on to to thank Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick. He says my life experiences over the last nine years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meat. I know he meant met autocorrect damn autocorrect the people I've met the relationships. I've been. The championships. I've been a part of I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity. And he goes on and on with few more thank yous it was truly an incredible honor to play such a great established organization. Eight able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building. Success? And of course, Tom Brady who does use Instagram and Facebook as well responded. He's always one of the first I feel like he either has people who are watching for anything that might be related to him even remotely or he spends way too much time on social media one or the other. But this was a moment that was speculated about not just this off season but last off season, and we'll see whether or not it sticks. Are you confident that rob gronkowski retired completely or do you think he'll pull a Brett farve or maybe he'll pull a Jason Witten? Either way. Do you think he will return? Every time. I look up on the TV. I see this. Montage of incredible rob gronkowski football plays. And also a lot of videos of him dancing, some without a shirt. That's what will remember about rob gronkowski that and the growing, spike? Remember, he's incredible catch late in Super Bowl fifty three with the patriots a three time Super Bowl champion. And also a four time first team all pro five time pro bowler. Nine hundred seventy nine touchdown catches. And some postseason records. So in sixteen playoff games. He had eighty one catches. Over eleven hundred yards and twelve touchdowns and think about the number of games he missed when he was
Dallas Cowboys: what you might not know about Jason Witten
"Catches for Jason Witten next season with the Cowboys years coming back. Yes. I heard that. So in his last fourteen seasons with the Cowboys. He never have fewer than sixty three catches never even when Tony Romo left and Dak Prescott was there who supposedly didn't throw him. He had sixty nine and sixty three catches older gonna throw to Amari Cooper will through the desert Prien Witten still made these catches. So the only way you can go under to me if you think he's going to get hurt. But in those last fourteen seasons, he missed two games two games in fourteen seasons. So I'm going over. I'm going to go under. You're just dismissing Dak Prescott corvette sixty nine sixty three talking about a guy. All right. So the last time he played with six catches, right? It's funny last season fifty playlists I get it you come walk right back and everything on the tight end tight is about twenty as they got a running back. They got to have that one. You know that when he was there. What do you thinking? How many are you thinking less than that? And I'm worried about him. I think when a guy does miss that much time. I think that's an injury start to crop up a little bit.
"witten" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Let's go. Witten shocked everyone yesterday when he announced he's leaving the Monday night football booth and returning to the Cowboys he agreed to a one year deal that could pay him up to five million dollars. Wind turns thirty seven in may yesterday. He said, quote this team has a great group of rising young stars. And I want to help them make a run at a championship. So skip. Yes. This is your team. Yes. It is. You have any concerns with Whitten coming back. And I remind everyone I'm an objective. Cal. No, you I n I lay it on the line every day you do. So I do have some concerns. But first of all let me just say Jason Witten going on thirty seven years of age as a blocker as an extra offensive lineman in the clutch third down catcher the football. Is he better than Jeff swam? Yeah. See better than Blake Jeroen. Yeah. Yeah. See a little better than the up and coming Dalton Scholtz. Yeah. I'll take him right now is he better than Rico gathered. No. But that's a whole nother. No, he is better than Rico. I'm afraid Rico's not long for the world. That's just a guess. I hope I'm wrong about that. They did carry four tight ends this year. So maybe who know who am I care? They might carry five concerns. Yes. You know, why? Because this did hit me when I saw the breaking news, and I sat back, and I thought about what am I going to tweet about this? Has Jason Witten ever won a Super Bowl. Now is he Shannon Sharpe of leaders. I can't go that far, right? Has has Jason Witten done much in the postseason. No, he's two and six they they beat the eagles when he was young player member when they turn around and beat him at the end of the regular season beat him in a playoff game right next week at both Jerry world. Donovan McNabb is kind of the end of the McNabb right era it RAI raise off from two. Yup. And they beat Detroit maybe they stole the game a little bit. And they did. And he made a big catch that game that sealed the deal. So do I love his winners. Intangibles is he the guy in the locker room? Who makes the big difference? Is it like Michael Jordan coming back to the bulls in ninety six? No, it's not like that. Because I never quite forgave. Jason. Remember what happened at the end of the seven season when they were riding high. Remember, this Bapu Kabul's son Lucas? Okay. So four people went to Kabul, son Lucas, and I did not love it. But they had a bye week, obviously because they'd gone thirteen and three so that a week off and home playoff game against ally. Manning who is about to do what I remember this. What did he went on to stop? What was it? How many do you win in a row eighteen or no or whatever? Yeah. It would have been nineteen. So what happened was that Tony Romo at that time was dating one Jessica Simpson. And Tony, and Jessica and Jason and his wife decided, let's all go to Kabo. It's not cool. It's not exactly Odell taken the receivers, south beach will. 'cause that's on the week of the game. Let's let's like come on a Monday. Okay. It was on Monday. So you prepare for a game on the frozen tundra by going to south beach and hanging on the age at Uber. Fair for the jazz going to combo. Yep. No, you don't okay. And on national TV. I took Tony to task..
"witten" Discussed on First Things First
"Now, this right here is a charity case they got three million three three and a half million dollars Bill to throw around. That's what they gave to Jason wit. Because Bill bell. Check does. This thing called pro football, y'all. Let me know the last guy he threw out a charity case two and three and a half million dollars is not nothing. And I know he loves Tedy Bruschi. I know he loves all those former players will Ford man loves them to death. They they don't give out jobs like that. Because it's precious. And when you. Get in these critical games. That was Cowboys won a playoff game. They should be building on it. They wanna playoff game without Jason Witten. Right. It should just be noted. Lastly in the last five years the fewest yards after the catch of any player wide receiver or tight end Jason Witten his last year with the Cowboys in the last five years the fewest yards total on at least sixty catches the fourth fewest. I should say was Jason win his lashed with the Cowboys. His last year with the Cowboys was one of the least productive high-volume seasons. We've seen from a pass catcher in a decade. Now, he's a year LeBron cast booth back with Dallas, and he's going to be better. It's totally illogical. Only thing better hair man, do got more hair. I don't know how that happened. I talked to Dion Earl acronym. They not pulled them with thank ranked coming up marine measure up to the number one pick. That's ahead on first thing spur. First things first we are joined by not just former NBA champ NCWA chew. Walker? This year. We put that in there. Just for you, any of the requests just let me know that. So I'm gonna introduce the inventor of the shimmy, can we include them loose. That's net sense. Yeah. There go. We've had a plethora of MVP conversations on this show with the top spot usually going to Jaanus or hard last night, hard and made one of the most impressive cases for himself yet the beer going off or fifty eight point seven boards tennis in a win over Miami. For James harden his sixth fifty point game of the season. No one else in the league has more than one. And oh, by the way, rockets came back from down twenty one to beat Miami. Here's James harden after the game. Listen shots for making shots or about taking shots that work on. And they're going to go any virtually so with two for thirty or fifteen sixteen thirty. I mean. Mean those shots are going to be shot. All right Antoine. When hardness plane like that when the team around him is this healthy how dangerous can the rocket spe-. I wasn't big on the rockets, but at the last night and really count evaluating the team that very dangerous, and they're because they added some key pieces if they healthy going into the playoffs. I love the pickup of a mon- shopper if he gets healthy suppresses out there. Kenneth are- was a great pickup this guy played in two years. So he's playing with a chip on his show these playing motivational basketball. He gives them a lot of energy f-. It was they're going to need if you play Golden State team. And then they are the one team that can give Golden State problems. They're gonna make Steph curry and DeMarcus cousin guard, the Houston Rockets are one of the few teams in the league that can force them to guard. So that's going to be Chris Paul being aggressive on offensive in. He got a role couldn't cappella he did lash finishing around the basket even can free. So I like what they got. And also like the pickup Austin rivers. I think he's a salad guy that can also get them give production complaints. The time. He was awesome. Awesome yesterday. The hardens gonna get the headlines understandably fifty eight points, eight rebounds, synthesis. But he but also hers I think was seventy eight from the field. They did it without Eric, Gordon. But I just I'm curious for all the folks out there either fans or media that have been trying to discredit what James Harden's been doing over the last five years and even this year. What's the excuse going?.
"witten" Discussed on Highly Questionable
"This is not a pill. Now, what's gonna happen with cars? Get Get away. away. And then the car right down the hill. We're going to get out of the way. I mean, God the way we go play Bush. And why are they doing this? They're making progress, but oh and this falls apart here. I look that guy on the left is like say much anymore. I'm done. Guys. Can we look at the moment again when the guy on the left just says, you know, what I'm gonna go with survival and to hell with my friends and this car and any parked cars nearby. What's the gun the left here? Guys this bad idea. I told you guys not to do that never mind. No. I'm just gonna walk. Yeah. That was always going to be about it. That was fun. Peel batum. The joke was funnier. The first time we all heard it. Do you question if this was to cart full? All right. Was this the cars fault? Was it? The tires fault whose fault was this. Let's see if an arrow helps us figure out who's fault. This was a goalies phone. All right. Thank you. Oh, jesus. I've had not that happening. But I've had a tire go off of a car and blow pass me.

And I'm sorry that might have been the look on my face, you tell us what to watch on television. I tell you for intrigued. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Tonight on MBA league past timber wolves have Pacers. No, but Jason Witten came out of retirement today, perhaps Reggie Miller at fifty three years old should also come out of retirement here. He is he comes to practice. The other day does some of this makes it look easy because he's going to be able to shoot from the nursing home is never going to not be able to shoot is any different than the guy from yesterday who hits thirty one St. three pointers in a minute. He's a little slower his forms a little bit better. He's just going to keep making them. We do sight of how good these people are by the way is he's been on those chords that three point line is pretty damn far, you human beings who aren't NBA players don't realize how far that three point line is in fact, and I will say no, I'm not intrigued. But in fact, Jason Williams once told me it was white chocolate. Jason Williams once told me the first three pointer you ever take on an NBA court will be an air ball. Five dribbles set myself through it up absolute air ball. It's very far away. Bob here you and trio same see in cheap. At least in blend ways washing media, say what how going on. You're supposed to throw off the backboard. That's the way from the chest. Backboard. That's why Reggie's retired. Streaming uninterrupted the six cents with Chris Paul Gerald green. Well, let's see if this is fun. Chris Paul, you saw acting very well in a commercial recently with James harden, perhaps here he is with Gerald green. How well do these two teammates? You didn't like the acting in. That was okay for athlete. Grading on the athlete curve. Let's check in with Chris Paul Gerald green and see how well they know each other NBA teams play on name. Gail Greene questioning rockets you play from Minnesota's that's a tough one people would know that they don't play in Boston you play for Phoenix. Did you do ten Dallas? Yes. I do. New jersey. For the Pacers. May my goodness. I forgot both forget Miami. Did they vote forget Miami? I think Gerald green for Miami is intriguing. No, I'm wondering why it's called the six cents for Chris Paul thing shouldn't that Lou Williams podcast or something. It's a little confusing. How about you Papi? Are. You intrigued. Oh, Saint si. Very intrigued green. He played for the heat. How did he forget how you know? Couldn't you. Remember, you know, he has some great moments. Like, let me see. We all forgot. I mean, he forgot he for them. That's all we'll have to. Thank you for washing. We got is replaced tomorrow. Bobby? We've got somebody in there. Instead of is he coming back tomorrow. Hey, see he's coming back tomorrow.

"And he said welcome back coach. And I think that that's where this is headed that was Nick's Twee. You look at it. It's very obvious. Jason wins future was not in the broadcast booth. We all learned that lesson. It was a long is in that regard his future is as an NFL coach. We all realize that his future is still in the game of football. That's who Jason Whitney's people talk about Tony Romo in that regard that doesn't necessarily feel like something that could happen right away. But Jason Witten duds, and you look at this. This allows for that lineage to continue Jason win comes back in a more limited role more veteran role more leadership role mentor ship role. That's the first step. I mean, you look at it. That's what people want to do this season. That's what people kind of. Expect from the savvy veterans Jason win can come back and kind of be that player coach, I'm San Antonio Spurs fan. I live in San Antonio, kind of Tim Dunkin to the cow was that's what he's been forever. And so he can certainly be that and be put on a faster trajectory to becoming an NFL head coach, or at least a coach of some variety versus if he stayed in the booth or things did not go. Well, how ESPN handles this will be very interesting. But that's not what we're here to talk about today again at your joining us. Welcome to Ocho alive, we do alive show every Tuesday and Thursday, we do podcast only episodes on Monday Wednesday and Friday, coincidentally, we had j Sternberg are on the show on Wednesday talked to him about the potential playing for the Dallas Cowboys that might happen might not happen. Because again, if you're joining us late Jason Witten is returning to the Dallas Cowboys it is one year deal. The value of it is conflicted are is conflict in excuse me. Conflicting reports from various NFL insiders. But the very least this seems like something. That most people are down with people are excited to see this Baylor. One on periscope says hire him as a coach. It's a waste of roster spot. I disagree with that. While you know, Jason win isn't going to lead tight ends in receptions, or yards or touchdowns by any means. He can still be of extreme value. I think that we know that Jason win provides value..
How important is hand size for Kyler Murray?
"The biggest deal his hand size. Which is the big deal. Not just grasping the football throwing the football. But also holding onto it when you're running you get hit or you're standing in the pocket, and you get hit the bigger your hands the easier. It is you to hold onto the football column. Murray's hands measured at five nine. I'm sorry nine and a half not in half inches. So ladies and gentlemen, in other words, considering all the measurable 's. He's in good standing and as a result. Now, we get to lean on his talents. We've seen a guy that primarily to pocket we see a guy that can run with the football. The likes of which we haven't seen since Michael Vick. Although Michael Vick was a more violent and different runner. The bottom line is we haven't seen anybody that can run the football like column ary outside of Michael Vick. Shawn Watson and there. I guess is debatable. I don't think. So. And as a result. The question is should column. Ary beat a number one overall pick any NFL draft. My answer's

"witten" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Jason Witten will join us coming up and about twenty minutes. Dan, the dannettes and Patrick show ravens Bengals coming up tonight, ravens favored in this game, or is it a pick? Em mclovin I've seen pick them Todd teddy saw Bengals minus one today. I saw where New England is a slight favourite in Jacksonville, slight favorite. They've had a lot of success against the Jags. Yeah, but this in Jacksonville, now I know we always say all boys chance to get back at them after losing the playoffs lines to, you know, you could win this game. It doesn't make up for losing last year in the plants. Did you see where Doug Marrone the Jacksonville head coach says he doesn't watch the Super Bowl because it reminds him failure of what he didn't do as a coach. His team didn't do. So I don't know. I don't know the last time he watched a Super Bowl, but he says that he doesn't watch the Super Bowl. Yes. Time you can understand last year with when they came so close. It's hard to believe that for several years. He didn't watch the supervisor. And if a head coach not have a curiosity to even watch part of a Super Bowl, how would Jacksonville done against the eagles? Because I was wondering about that. A whole lot better defense, not anywhere near the offense. But if you had that defense against that Philadelphia offense. Now you also have to have your offense in Jacksonville, go against Philadelphia's defense, and that's a good defense. Now, Philadelphia is more balanced team. I was just curious about if you're shutting down Nick foles. It's going to be a low scoring game. Can you somehow carve out something, you know it have to be the defense probably providing some points there, but are you going to load up Leonard? Fournette? Can Bortles make a couple of plays. So I thought about that last night. Yes, polling. I know it's tough to bring yourself back there, but let's say was eagles Jaguars in the Super Bowl, remembering what you remember about those teams going in, who do you think you would have picked? I would have picked the eagles because it it came down to. They had a more balanced team. The offensive and defensive lines were the best in football on one two and Blake Bortles is vulnerable, really is I still look back. I even thought about this last night and a lot of free time. On my hand had a nice cigar. I had some tequila and I was just sitting there in the basement with my thoughts..
Dez Bryant trolls Dallas Cowboys on Twitter during, after loss
"Guests. It was trolling his former team all afternoon Dez Bryant. Maybe glad he doesn't have a job right now in the NFL because that would keep him from watching the Cowboys and tweeting about the Cowboys who lost to the Carolina Panthers. They got doubled up sixteen to eight. It's more like a baseball score than it is like a football score. It was definitely a game in which the defense with the Carolina Panthers and the crowd in Charlotte. Played a major role. The only allowed two hundred thirty two yards. Dak Prescott was constantly under duress. He got sacked six times. And on third down the Cowboys were only two of eleven so the offense really struggled. Maybe that's not a huge surprise to you. Right. You've got Leuke clear on the other side. Always in double figures tackles, you've got an offense led by Cam Newton that does a really good job of controlling the ball, especially at home. And Cam was out there flexing his muscles goal from the four. Manhertz standup tied into the right? The fake to McCaffrey. Going to take it in South Carolina league touchdown. Camden Yards away. Oh, short and sweet. Sense on the Carolina Panthers radio

"Radio jason witten is a first ballot hall of famer without a doubt he's fourth all time in the nfl in receptions he's i in cowboys history in receiving yards and his eleven pro bowls are the second most of any tight end and i get it the cowboys were already looking for a fresh infusion of energy and youth at that position but they weren't getting rid of jason witten they wanted witten for all the reasons that you hear everyone talk about this guy great character amazing leadership mentor good locker room example he was the glue he was the glue that held that locker room together in many cases and one of the things that i will always remember about jason witten i will respect him to the instagram for his football and for the length of his career and his productivity but i gained a newfound perspective on whitten the year that he played and was a member of the same locker room with greg hardy jason waited outspoken advocate against domestic violence and yet greg hardy who was in that cal was locker room flaunting the fact that he was free making very cryptic comments kind of throwing it back in in the nfl's faith and everybody else's face that he got away with what he did jason witten not only did he told the line when it came to what he's passionate about which is speaking against and preventing domestic violence but he also was a teammate greg hardy mean that had to be extremely difficult to do and yet his maturity his wisdom his personality all of that amazing i'm not sure i could have done it but jason did and he has with class and with grace and so that was one of the things that just took my respect of witton to a whole new level so congratulations to him on an incredible career i'm sorry we won't get to see him on the field but he has decided the broadcast booth is calling it's been said whether right or wrong better three hours too soon that a minute too late the manager cyst on seeing the perfect clear clearness before he decides he never decides except life and you cannot accept regret after much self reflection prayer and faith today or decided that his time has come to pass the torch to the next generation of dallas cowboys.
