Cowboys vs. Eagles score: Michael Gallup leads aerial assault against Philadelphia, keeps Dallas alive in NFC East
"Dallas cowboys ended the philadelphia eagles season on sunday afternoon at. At and t. stadium. That's right the eagles now with only four wins with only one game left even though the cowboys will need some help from them. The philadelphia eagles are officially done. And we'll have to look forward to two thousand and twenty one when their quarterback will be jalen hurts full-time or carson wentz. Who knows there's a lot to get into as it as it relates to this game again so many things happen. Let's start the first highlight to show you here. If you're watching on youtube sean. Jackson did indeed have an eighty one yard touchdown. Jalen hurts finds him about six minutes left in the first quarter. Just absolutely rose. We had absolutely chance. This is the type of thing that we've grown accustomed to seeing. Unfortunately from sean jackson he has gotten the better end of the cowboys for a long time over a decade. Schon jackson has been shown the cowboys now with multiple quarterbacks in multiple home stadiums schon jackson has had success. I'll give it to him that. At least this time. He remembered to score the touchdown and not fumbled the ball right in front of the goal line. Let's keep on. Let's get to some more happy. Highlights and michael gallup who was in contention for our star of the game. His first touchdown was a beauty as the second quarter. Began getting the cowboys. Back in the mix narrowing the margin. Fourteen to ten michael gallup like i said look at that elite camera work from fox. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael gallup quickly got to work. He had a big gain a little bit after a few minutes later. Look at this starting his own thirty five running down the sideline a bunch of eagles chasing him. Michael gallup doing all the work doing all the work doing all the work and then speaking of work you know the cowboys as we all know they like to feed ezekiel elliott. This was later on that possession the cowboys trailing fourteen. Ten and ezekiel elliott. There's no video of this so apologies. If you're watching on youtube you can see our freeze frame image. A looked like ezekiel elliott. Who had a really great game really looked like he scored on. This place is a bad angles from the tv copy but to me to my naked eye it looks like zeke. Elliott is over the line. I think that that's a touchdown. Zeke mike mccarthy did not challenge this. The cowboys wound up settling for fuel narrowing the margin fourteen to thirteen. They would ultimately start their climb back and they're ferocious. Climb back in fact. Let's get to that. Climb another michael gallup touched down here at the end of the first half andy dalton not even messing around just looking right for him and michael gallup again just a superstar a true wide receiver. One cowbys have three of them. Dalton schultz you can see very happy for his teammate. This was a phenomenal performance by michael gap
"zeke elliott" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Here's a good stat for you. Garrett Gilbert had 40 career yards coming into today. Well. Ben Roberts Berger, who is back on the sidelines for the Steelers, just in the second quarter alone was 12 or 14 with a touchdown on 104 yards. Right hash at the Cowboys 23 under center Gilbert Games straight ahead. Zeke Elliott across the 25. He's brought down after a pickup of five by Splain. And it's second down, and Elliott, who was somewhat limited in the first half, Jeff just his ninth Carrie in the game. Run the inside zone there, and I was remember being coached on the backside of the inside zone. They say the backside becomes the front side. That's exactly what happened. As he pushes the front side. He ends up sporting all the way back across the formation and get a five yard game. Just 19 yards on the ground For Elliott today, second and five for the 28 shotgun snap Gilbert looking right throws underneath to the right. It's cut. Going back toward the middle and spun down is Michael Gallop. First down Cowboys a gain of 10. Gilbert to gallop a picture perfect start to Gilbert 1st 1st half in complete control never seemed unsettled, was able to execute and placed the ball well, and a good start to the second half of that is a really nice tight throw on the slant route like cowboys 38 on. They faked a handoff to Elliot the end around from right to left a mark Cooper to the outside and he's tripped up by Mika Fitzpatrick. Running for eight on the end around so Mari Cooper to bring up second into more of the gadget plays by The Dallas Cowboys here. I mean, it was A really impressive individual effort by make a Fitzpatrick cause that was a lot of green grass that he had to defend to make that open field tackle to force the second short left Hashanah Cowboys 46 2 tight ends on the right. Elliot behind Gilbert under center for on the line for the Steelers and pitch sweeping, right. Ezekiel Elliott, and he tripped up lunges forward has enough. First down Dallas, Stefan to it on the tackle. As Elliott brought down Shyam midfield but moves the chains for the Cowboys. T. J want moving around.
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the
The Coronavirus Pandemic Puts The NFL Season At Risk
"Running back Zeke Elliott, talking about his recovery from Corona. As well as his concerns about the NFL season so guys, let's get right to it as we discussed that the NFL has consistently maintained a full speed ahead mentality about their season despite the coronavirus pandemic, but they have decided to cancel an event, the preseason opener hall of fame game between the cowboys and the steelers in Canton, Ohio, is being canceled Walton Hall of fame. Fame or eight enshrinement ceremony is being postponed. Sources told the SPN's Adam schefter all of that the and steelers now expected to play in the twenty twenty one hall of fame game, according to Schefter and the enshrinement ceremony also expected to be held next year,
Frustrated with fallout from his weekend gathering, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott clarifies, says fewer than 10 people were at house
"Back to us. Dak Prescott held a social gathering over the weekend. No social gatherings right now. I don't care you know if you it under ten overs over ten just Nixon. Everyone else is eating the poop right now. You do too Mr quarterback anyway. He held a party. And Zeke Elliott was also there and Dacca's upset because he thinks it's been blown out of proportion by the media and by idiots like me saying it wasn't more than ten people it wasn't out of control it wasn't a ranger But Steven Jones says Tuesday in an interview with the fan in Dallas that he talked to both Prescott and Elliott about not conducting gatherings while most of the country remains under quarantine. Here's what Stephen Jones had to say Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then do press got released a statement. Where do you come down on this March attack? Angry with them furious furious. I think two things Jane slater followed up to report that some of the images that showed the swanky bizarre looking party center was actually a a local restaurant called Nick and Sam's that she's been to and they actually took their own photos of the spread. They sent to Jack on with all these things in general. It's like if if someone were to from a PR angle examine what I did from age. Twenty to twenty eight. It would be a horrific story for the nation to follow along in general. Let's try to stay. Let's just like not get in our own way while the entire country is gripped by the biggest Health Related News. Story of our lifetime and your deck. Prescott and Zeke Elliott hanging around eating lamb wings or whatever it is eating. It's just why this wings when they don't know what was on the menu. I might be right. I have to stop. Lamps brings to stop going to my neighbor's front yard every day at five o'clock and sitting eight feet across from each other here. You're sitting across from each other not having a party inside your house with all having dinner at the same table. He said less than fewer than ten people right. I mean it's hard to keep track of the rules and get a handle on severity when the messages so mixed from layers at the national state and Cable News Levels. Dr Ci Telling People that Hate. Take a swing on tinder if you need to. He basically said it on that podcast. We mentioned if you're if you're willing to take the risk. Go down the Tinder Avenue. She said shoot. Your shot is basically what he said. So it's a dangerous time in the Corinthian because this is kind of a screw it time. Meaning some of my like. I'm sick of this screw. It like I am tired of doing this. I'M GONNA have my friends over. I've been doing this for weeks. It's tired and I WANNA see my girlfriend. Whatever IT MAY BE. It's sort of the screw it period and I think maybe that's what that got into my question. Why is Dak hosting anything? He shouldn't be hosting a heap. That means he has to pay for food and drink and everything. There's like six different people on the cowboys. That should be hosting party. Zeke should be hosting the Marcus. Jalen all of those guys who have been paid I picture. Dak and his front door charging twenty dollars a Solo Cup to come in. He's the last guy who should be hosting. They should be hosting him. It's not the end of the world but it's also west like days after he's out working out with Dez Bryant and everyone's got their arms around each other and at some point. Yeah you're young and you make mistakes again. It's not the end of the world. But you're also like an example for everyone tracking Dak Prescott in the state of Texas and like if it's cool that he's just going out like basically living his life as normally does and other people think that they can't do
Jerry Jones talked the talk. But Ezekiel Elliott knew Cowboys owner would pay up
"Begin begins today with jerry jones closing in on a deal with ezekiel elliott as he said he would elliott has flown back from parts unknown and jones's put the money on the table. The dealers is reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety million dollars for six years which is a pretty nice neighborhood frank. Did the cowboys do the right thing by showing zeke the money yeah well. We know how it works tony. It's all about the guaranteed money so right now. If it's six years of actually being eight year contract because we being extension still has two years left. I think jerry jones and i think is equal. It all knew that he was going to be backed by week one. I think this whole thing all along him going to mexico wherever he was working out. He knew that he would be back. I think he's our most important offensive player and to the point point. Jerry jones is desperate desperate to win the super bowl and he thinks he needs ezekiel elliott and he didn't wanna missing one game so i'm gonna push back gently because they need suzuki and this had to be done. I'm not sure they need ezekiel elliott right now. This has nothing to do with money. In my mind i think they open with the giants the better team than the giants and the redskins. They're a better team than the redskins. I think what went on in jerry's mine is the specter of emmett smith when they went oh and two and he had to publicly sort of eat crow and go and give him the money now. I think you always want ezekiel elliott and to your point. He is their offense. This is not the kid from san diego dago melvin gordon yeah. They don't really need like you put dak prescott out there without zeke elliott and they don't really have a great offense. I'm just i'm just suggesting that it could have been because they're gonna. They're gonna give him the ball so much that he could get hurt. I could they wait for you. Want load management then in the n._f._l. N._f._l. I want him to make sure if i'm trying to win the super bowl. I wanna make sure i understand there's sixteen games before you get to the price. You're my lead guy but you're bringing being up. Emmett smith and emmett smith played with more battle-tested quarterback number one. Yes a better team. They went on to win the super bowl. This team has a long way to go before they can do that. I guess it's it's too important. You know the gauging your talk just chunking up saying they're they're guaranteed win. I don't i don't but that's how that's what jerry jones said. Maybe we'll get him back in a week. We need them in time for the playoffs. Yes you sure you're gonna make. I'm not saying i would wait till the playoffs. That's what he well. He made it sound like we don't need in the first few weeks. We'll play that is public. Posturing that jerry does very very well but the money's money's on the table
Ezekiel Elliott, agent touch down to finalize Cowboys deal
"Our reporter edward or who was in dallas following zeke situation closely. He said i've been told that agent. Rocky arsenault is traveling with running back ezekiel elliott from kabul to dallas. Remember zeke was working out in kabul bob now traveling back to his team's hometown source said an agreement between the team and the two-time n._f._l. Rushing champion is very close. Good news for cowboys cowboys fans as one is a pun us and it would be a good time to agree to a new deal multiple reports say again zeke left kabul to be back in dallas the hope being that if and when a deal gets done he would be in close proximity to the team and could rejoin them very quickly quickly michael. We'd said i this well. It's obviously <hes> on tuesday. You better be preparing with the people that you've got available to you for sunday and so we're working with the people that we have out here now and the ones that we have that we were going to be on the field and that's how we're preparing it will be great will be and would be great if a short period of time passes that zeke would be in that group but we'll see how wow today goes. We'll see how tamara goes. We'll see how the ensuing hours pan out again. Jerry jones commenting on this as he has throughout the process sometimes with better results than others but in any event when i said to you hey rocky. Our snow is with zeke elliot. He said you said what that is. Typically assigned things close. Yes yes exactly when the agents coming with the player that means. We're at the one yard line. We have some details to work out and again. We gotta remember that zeke elliott's already under contract so that's important he just joke right back in in terms of gain the physical done and sometimes it may take a day or two to work out the details with the agent get the approval in terms of some of the details worked out but in the meantime he could get the weekly game plan and there's speaking acclimated back <hes> very quickly so hopefully this gets resolved over the next day or so well jackie said this earlier but just to underscore underscore the point that sooner is better having said that you feel like as long as he's in camp. I mean not camp. I'm sorry with with the team and in practice by thursday day to be in the plan on thursday needs to be in by wednesday so so we gotta be close in order to go twenty four hours or so but it doesn't surly a matter how many players but it could be the most important place and we talked about this earlier you know just from past protections point he may be out there on third downs and in non non running situations because of his conditioning. Tony pollard has taken every rep in every meeting so i got to imagine that tony pollard even with zeke there this week will be a big part of the game well. It's so easy to think about zeke and to be effective. He's got to have the football on his hands but to your point pass protection is something he can do and has done and if that's what it is this week then so be it then you surviving advance so to
Holdout Ezekiel Elliott still absent from Dallas Cowboys as first game draws near
"Saturday multiple outlets report that there is some progress negotiation zeke and the cowboys and the expectation was that they would have something worked out by the end of the weekend then last night multiple reports stated that negotiations had fallen flat once again the category on structure the contract like total guaranteed money over how many years not necessarily how much the contract could top out at basically zeke is holding says i want todd gurley contract and then some the cowboys you're saying no because the dot girly contracts hawks folks because todd gurley is not right and if the rams were asked hey. Would you like to go sign. The curly contract again like no no. We're good. We love me on that one. This amid word you always has more cowboys have consistently shown willingness to sign their best players to extensions with two years remaining and make a player. The highest paid his position the fact that they're preparing to start the season without ezekiel ezekiel elliott has a holdout says a lot about how they view his demands. I drafted zeke elliott in in one of my fantasy leagues would have drafted him yesterday and the other fantasy league and my logic is there rawson rachel. He didn't really have have anywhere to go. He's under contract going anywhere and the whole sitting out thing like all right. He could sit out a couple of games. They're not gonna lose to the redskins or lose to the giants or lose lose to the dolphins which is not and this is not the lady on bell situation. He's not a free agent. Franchise tag like he still is under his rookie deal. Deal cowboys are in fact offering him a contract above and beyond that of a franchise tag. They're offering emigrate deal. Cowboys need him. They need him for later in the season need him to win a super bowl. The team is built around. Having a solid running game takes the pressure off dak prescott because it helps it helps to hide the fact that dak isn't deck. I mean that isn't that special. He is an elite but when is given all the weapon who work for he's going. He's fine. He's he's. He's he's draymond. Green deck is dre mongering with the cowboys really really effective without the cowboys and all they have probably just a guy but it's really hard to i find it draymond green just hard quarterbacks league and he has the equity and he continues to grow in terms of being a leader but this is ross and rachel. They're on a break but they're gonna get back together. A namesake tony pollard won't matter in a week or two weeks or a month or whenever and it it feels like the the cowboys probably went back and said look. We'll give you tell total dollar value of that todd gurley we just want to protect ourselves from your legal and bad the way the todd gurley did the cowboys haven't publicly once said anything said anything about you know dude. You were suspended six games and we went to the mattresses for you. Hey dude you almost got suspended this off season and we would have been therefore you. We would have said how wrong it was. We have fought for you. There is some there is some some some sweat equity from zeke but there's also some equity from extended from the cowboys and the other thing about the ross and rachel story to be honest at some point it did take away from the show right like i get it ross rachel. We'll be back together. Who are they dating now. When can they get back together all this other stuff but i like chandler. I like joey. I like how you doing.
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
"Be N._F._l.. Teams are in training camp but that doesn't mean every player is we've got hold doubts in key spots Saints Michael Thomas Chargers Melvin Gordon who else Yana can gakugei Jacksonville Trent Williams in Washington and of course Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas the big one big name that everyone's watching out there in oxnard California all guys that <hes> are heading into either the final year of their deal or wants some sort of adjustment on their contract before camp or the season starts so we gotta go through all these the person who helps us make sense of all this stuff is our own Adam schefter so Adam Una make this pretty simple. I will give you a name and you tell us the latest on that player. Start with Ezekiel Elliott of of the cowboys will Zeke Elliott has not shown up in Oxnard California side of the Dallas Cowboys training camp and they're going through physical today. They are basically supposed to be attending a team meeting and there's no sign of Zeke right now which tells you soup that it looks like at the very least Zeke Watch is underway and it certainly feels like this is going to be a hold out while the two sides tried to see if they can come up with a new deal for Zeke Elliott but no signs of him California this yet and no signs as of November by the chargers camp right now then this one is going to go on for a while the two sides basically have their own stances. There have differing pains. Nobody Gordon's value. I don't see this getting south anytime this summer I I think this one looks like it has a real chance to go into the regular season. It's time for Austin Ecuador and Justin Jackson and no Michael Thomas in New Orleans still you take the reading receiver off that team. The saints have offered to make them the highest a wide receiver receiver in football. It sounds like he wants to get to a very high threshold north of twenty million dollars a year. We'll see what they can get there where the saints a willing to budge but Michael Thomas wants to become not just a highest eight wide receiver in football but the highest paid wide receiver football by a long shot right now while we wait for Julio Jones deal to potentially come in later this summer Adam sit tight we we'll come back to you as as needed. We're going to go back and talk about Ezekiel Elliott though how important is even to the cowboys he's led the N._F._l.. Rushing yards per game in each of his first three seasons the only other players to do that in the ninety nine year history of the N._F._l.. or Jim Brown and Earl Campbell perhaps you've heard of them. Both of those guys are in the hall of fame name safe to say that few running backs have ever had a better start to their careers then has Ezekiel Elliott
Ezekiel Elliott reportedly still hasn't decided whether to hold out from Cowboys training camp
"There are weird. Reports coming on profootballtalk reported over the weekend that Zeke Elliott is headed out of the country potentially this week which is curious considering the cowboys training camp this week I mean that's low bold but yeah man I mean if Zeke's not there and that's look it would suck and let me clear nobody wants us but it would be interesting that that's what I'll say it would not at all be desirable it would not at all be preferred but it would be interesting because Zeke not being there would cast a shadow over for the entire camp that you know a lot of guys not being there would not really be missed to to just put it one way but Zeke Elliott not being there there. Would you would feel that and if he wasn't there I mean who's who's your rb one. I mean honestly who who's starting running back for the Dallas cowboys. If it's not Ezekiel Elliott Darius Jackson Toni Ballard I mean that that would be that would be interesting is really the only way I can put that so <hes> hopefully we don't have to wonder too long. Hopefully we get some confirmation. That's is in fact staying in the United States in Oxnard and hopefully this was just a waste of about a minute of all of our lives.
Dallas Cowboys star to pay for funeral of teen football phenom
"Zeke Elliott Ezekiel Elliott Dallas Cowboys running back. He does a lot of good. And and it goes unnoticed largely another story is really just starting to get out last couple of days. I haven't heard a whole bunch about it. He he's gonna pay for the funeral expenses of a young man in eighth grade football player who was shot and killed near Saint Louis last weekend. Fourteen year old boy the name of Jalen MacKenzie struck by a stray bullet while attending a party died shortly after an area hospital. And the fifteen year old girl was also hit is in critical condition. His mother was asked about how she felt about Elliott reaching out to her and offering to pay for her son's funeral and she broke into tears. I'm sure she says she so grateful to the people in the community and the world and a country who have reached out. Zeke's kindness is no surprise to the Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was asked about this. He said Zeke is really a special guy. He's a great football player, obviously. But he's really good person. That doesn't surprise me one bit. I think he's just very generous. He's got a great spirit around back. I mean, all these guys a lot of these guys go above and beyond. And it's exactly the opposite of what you hear so much about the the pro football players trouble, for slapping, their wives around and so forth. Always a few bad eggs. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, you know in pro football. They have they have less there. They have fewer incidents of violent crime than in the general population nearly. Yeah, that's interesting.

David Johnson Levy on bells going to get paid. This of coming off season and Zeke Elliott one year left with a seven point nine million dollar cap it remained under the he's going to want to get aid as well. In addition to Dak Prescott, and that's not the only financial decision for the Dallas Cowboys Amari Cooper is gonna wanna get eight. He's headed into the fifth year option on his contract. He produced big time for that team. And when you have all these players like Cooper and Elliott and Prescott all scheduled to go into the last year of their deals. You've got some major financial work to do in the off season. And that doesn't include some the other moves that they have to make like sunny DeMarcus Lawrence who was their franchise. The last off season who's going to be a priority to resign this off season. This is always the downside to having successful seasons. The Dallas Cowboys have had one.

Certainly proved listen, I'm the guy for the future continue to build around me. The biggest thing for this greenie is if you're going to sign him long-term, and he's your guy for the future, which she should be. You've got to change your offense. One hundred percent you. The change your offensive coordinator to give yourself a better chance to use all of his talents. Well, that's interesting because that takes you directly to the coaching.

And this is the same owner that that ended up getting getting rid of Tom Landry Brian going with Jimmy Johnson out of nowhere. I can definitely see him rolling the dice for Lincoln Riley and to me.

Matthew Berry's top waiver wire adds headlined by Dak Prescott, Josh Adams and Anthony Miller
"Is perhaps the lease refined thrower they'll face during their schedule this year. Put such a bad defense. That's a brutal defense. And honestly the falcons again this game is in Atlanta. So we expect the falcons spill to put up some points on Dallas. So I think this could be there's a little bit of shootout appeal here as well. And just to your point about that Prescott. So add Atlanta this week field. But then home to Washington home to the saints home to Philadelphia three straight home games at Indian week fifteen week sixteen the championship game in many leagues home to Tampa Bay. And then if he played an ESPN Stanley which goes to week seventeen at the giant it is a really favorable schedule coming up here for Dak Prescott here each of the next six games indoors or retractable roof as well. So good good. Good conditions to your point. He started rushing more. I think the I think having Amari Cooper, just stretching the field opened things up for that. And not only does it a talented pass catcher for. But also just opens up the field. Allows more running lanes for Zeke Elliott. Helps set up play action better helps you know running lanes for for Dax. So I think he is not only a very viable streamer this week. But I think is a viable top twelve guy the rest of the year. I mentioned this point yesterday on the show that after next week by week no longer thing.

"Now. You'll remember obviously one of the plays the game. The Cowboys in Philadelphia Zeke Elliott hurdled goodness gracious. The world is already starting to poster. Is this young man Zeke Elliott Zeke had his fair share of hurdles certainly as as it als- Cowboys running back, but I think the one that he had in Philly was without question. His most impressive on his young career. And it's true. The Cowboys did not score a touchdown. A lot of people kind of set the Zeke Elliott unable to punch it into the end zone. And I understand, you know, you always want seven points instead of three. There is no explanation for why the Cowboys could not score on that drive. You think about the Cowboys also scored touched on after late in van rashes interception. Those are moments that you have to score toge sends those are moments that you have to come away with seven points because those opportunities those gifts if you wanna call them gifts don't. Come around all that often. So it certainly was disappointing to see the Cowboys only kick field goals there. And you also think about it the common on periscope says that would have been the best play ever if it had been touched on if that had been a touchdown for Elliot in the words of Papa Ocho who will be on July later on in the week when we're over in Atlanta getting ready to watch the Cavs take on the falcons that would have been an SPA play. If Zeke Elliott scored a touchdown on that play that would have been nominated for an Espy that would have been nominated for awesome NFL honors. It would have just been on real. And while the Cowboys certainly was unfortunate that they did not punch it in those circumstances. I was surprised that we were all surprised shops. The Cowboys managed to punch it in at the end of the game two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. As we all know that was very impressive. I think also the fact that Cavs got a touchdown late in the first half was very impressive to. So there was a lot of good. There was definitely some bad from the Cowboys. But if you can win a game on your playing bad. That's that's what good football teams do not necessarily trying to say. The Cowboys themselves are good football team. But it was it was not good comment on periscope from Bill says the Cowboys have left a lot of points on the field recently. I agree. You think about the Monday night game last week seven days ago against the Tennessee titans. Cowboys left a lot of points on that field. And it came back to buy them as they lost that game. But thankfully, that was not the case in Philadelphia is something that I thought was very interesting. We waited to go late today on OSHA live. We waited for Jason GARRETT'S press conference where he addressed the media following the big win in Philadelphia. Jason garrett. I know this is going to shop, you all was not in a mood to celebrate was not in a mood to, you know, throw a party Jason Garrett maintain his monotone robotic sort of mannerisms just focused on the next task at hand focused on, you know, the Atlanta, Falcons, etc. Blah, blah, blah. But something that was very interesting. And we broke down the press conference excuse me for your blog on the boys.
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says he explained OT punt decision to Jerry Jones
"Felt like that point in the game. The way our defense was playing, the idea was dependent down there. Chris did a great job with the punt the ball in the ten yard line and hopefully make us stop and you win the game coming back here the way with the game winning field goal. So one of my pet peeves is when we criticise coaches, fourth-down decisions based on the result. For example, Frank Reich last week went for, it didn't work out. So he got roasted earlier in this very game. Bill O'Brien with a near the goal line didn't work out and he got roasted, but you can look at the process and criticize that as well. Bill O'Brien's play calling in the red zone that entire game was, shall we say, puke tastic. And in this case he clearly should have gone for it because of the resources available to him. Dak Prescott quarterback who is successful with a quarterback, sneak in that game. Zeke Elliott that offense of line. When you have all of those pieces you go. Also, guts, menas, beloved Seahawks. At the end of the game, the Rams went Ford and it was a lot of talk about how courageous they were forgotten this much distance with their quarterback just pushing forward because so many of the coaches in this league or satisfied with coward ball. But if you're going to install as your coach, Jason Garrett because you. Want as the owner to be the owner who can say things afterward, the criticize him, you can't be too surprised that your puppet coaches a little meek and big situations. Well, if I were, he must. I looking for a job right away because now he's some the JJ that's it looks like a chicken in front of j. That's right. That's right. Cheating. Can you say that. He already did.

"The right call and drafting a running back over a quarterback because it is desperate out there in terms of quarterback play ally, Manny looked brutal again. Last night. Right part of the offense of line. I'm going to say in fairness, in fairness to ally like he had no time to throw at any one given point. Honestly, I think that's going to be a story line for as long as Donald in the NFL for the Cowboys. There is one player you can trust to start. His name is the, he'll Elliott seventeen rushes for seventy eight yards and a touchdown. Last night he had the rare five catches for nine yards last night five for nine from Zeke Elliott, but still playing PR score and you're like, I'll take five point nine points in the past passing game. Zeke Elliott was one of the consensus top for running backs coming into this season. One of the other ones was David Johnson. We're gonna talk about this more throughout the week, but David Johnson yesterday had one catch for three yards. Six point, one fantasy points. I feel bad. I do not feel as though David Johnson has regressed in any way as a player now, but this offense of system feels like it's fine to fail. I think my tweet from yesterday was, do they know what he can do? Or they know where he can do. Right? Like you see this guy every day, you know his talent. Why was he not? Why? Why was he not targeted in the passing game? Why? Why? I mean it it I, I invested heavily in David Johnson where I could fantasy leagues. I didn't always have a pick that allowed me to get him. I felt like he was the number one pick overall. I know you guys had concerns about the offense. I had concerns, but I thought for Sam Bradford, he'd be a great outlet in the short passing game. I didn't. I misjudged that how they would utilize their top players in both David Johnson and Larry FitzGerald. You're the problem with with what's happened. So far there, many of them, but you look at this and you say, all right, they have been down the route the. They've been basically trailing for two full games. Game scripts says, when you're down big, you throw the football, you throw the football to account talented player other than Fisher. They have none in terms of established pass catcher besides David Johnson, I'm nervous about this. I am not telling you to not use. David Johnson in your backfield next week. All I am saying is that if you drafted a pick, you might be a little like you might be a bit regretful about taking David Johnson with. One of those picks I I'm super nervous about the what fueled his, his twenty sixteen was the pass catching and the touchdowns and you don't have any confidence that either coming back, they're not using them in the passing game, and obviously, you don't see this offense scoring a ton of point. He's, he's, he's actually touching the ball less as well. So this makes me nervous makes me chambers as well. Chase Edmunds had more targets in the passing game than David Johnson to yesterday. The other side of the running back coin is Todd Gurley. Before we go there real quickly, we should do a name, you wanna. We wait on this. We don't have time. We got on week to get the David. Larry, Gerald with a hamstring injury, went out in the third quarter up to be serious, but keep an eye on it. Rarely injured his old Todd, Gurley the other side of the equation. Here he left his game with cramping, but at that point they didn't even need to bring him back three touchdowns for Todd Gurley. We asked going into this week, the Rams sustained three pass catchers, dip. The answer is yes. Spraining cooks was the star yesterday. Seven catches for one hundred and fifty nine yards. This team looks every bit as good as advertise to the first two weeks of the season. A field fighting was to talk about how the fact that she had she had David Johnson number one overall jail. I want that one back. Yeah, I think if there's one preseason call that I could have back, it's that I was down on Brennan cooks. I didn't think brand cooks, where's he makes up for my well, not quite by David Johnson. Well, whatever. I mean, like everyone had David Johnson of the top four what I mean, it doesn't matter. I mean, like everyone had him as a top four play..

"So they should be mostly competitive. And here's the key. You've so many options of quarterback. It's like if you move him up ten spots, you have to move everybody else down. And there's just so many great options that top twenty. I'll say from eight to twenty is almost the same at the quarterback position is probably with the with the argument against taking their two arguments. You're nervous. There's so many other options, and I'm not going to be grudge. If you tell me, hey, listen, I'd rather Matthew Stafford, rather Philip rivers. I'd rather met Ryan and fine with that. I put them in a tea or there. Again, I have long said, and I will continue to say this until I'm done working fantasy football ranking time ahead to sixty years ahead but tears, tears, make more sense in rankings, one versus two versus two versus three, seven versus. Eight back Prescott's ninety a clear cut starter. To me. He's a player that I think has the ability to finish the top ten quarterback which applies to about well six others as well. They're outside my top ten, Zeke Elliott might be the one cowboy amongst all others that you can. I mean these the only cowboy that everybody a hundred percent trusts. I think Mike, that most people views Zeke Elliott is on the outside looking in on that number one overall conversation. But can you make the case Zeke Elliot to go number one overall? I think in non PR you can. I think PR it's harder to do because though they're gonna throw him the football more often this season, and we did see an uptick last year, but believe it was about a target per game last year. It may go up even further this year. That's great, but will get to bell. Will we get to girly? We'll get to David Johnson in terms of usage. I don't think he's going to get that far so non PR you can make the case. I don't think you can PR those four are so unique in so many ways to things about Kelly that you probably only appreciate it when you spend time around him. He's a fire hydrant Dudayev built to last. He missed six games last year, but I doubt, yeah, yes, injuries can happen to anybody in any moment, but players that are quick to handle a large workload. Zeke fits the Bill. He totally does. He's built to me at David Johnson kind of builds same way on bell more of stout running back. And the thing is is the only injury that I recall him having was the hamstring issue in the precede over there was a lot of chatter. I think a head of last year at the camps run together for me, but I remember going out everybody was like, is he gonna be ready to ready, and he was ready from a health perspective. Just alternately the time that he missed was due to a suspension. So he keeps himself in good shape. He is the volume is not a surprise like is is not going to surprise him to have that much work like his passing game usage goes up this year as well. And we saw a steady growth as Mike mentioned, and you echoed is we saw it last year. Go up. He averaged seventeen point. Seven routes run per game in two thousand sixteen as a rookie. It goes up to. Ninety six point five as a sophomore last year. I don't think I think he's got a legit shot lead the NFL though to touches this year. Hamer, lady on bell lady on obviously is the clear-cut favourite, but Zeke could very well lead the NFL in touches this season. I, yeah, I do have him projected leading carries in yards so with carrying rushing also think we all believe many of us believe. Got a great shot to lead. You mentioned as number one player in nine PR chat, such downs. That's the thing. I think that if I was making the case, that would be because you know, they're gonna go to him and he's got the potential to get an even if you know that that's what they're going to do, moving onto the pass catchers. And I'm not really sure where to start because no one knows where to start with the Dallas Cowboys pass catchers in almost feels like when you poll put up but which Cowboys pass catcher, you most want to roster in twenty eighteen..

Murray's single season rush record is in trouble that eight how of the Cowboys now that eighteen forty eight is in serious jeopardy because I believe he'll get somewhere between three fifty. Four hundred carries a season and he'll be somewhere between four and a half, maybe even five yards. So he could easily approach that two thousand yard burying Zeke Elliott is going to be a monster.

Soon after we launched two years ago, I started predicting that Russell Westbrook would average a triple double for that twenty sixty day any seventeen season and he did. So I'm about to make another prediction. I believe that if all goes well, obviously health plays a bigger factor, bigger role often in football than it doesn't basketball. But if a bunch of people stay healthy for the Dallas Cowboys offense including most of all Zeke, you'll Elliot. I believe he will break Eric Dickerson's NFL single Watson, rushing record of two thousand one hundred and five yards. Eric, obviously a contributor here on. Not like me predicting that, but I am predicting that because it all all the planets have aligned for this to happen this year in the back friendly offense that you suggest. But I'm going to point out that that year in LA for the Rams that was nineteen Eighty-four. Remember that was thirty four years ago record. I remember it has endured for thirty four years because in those days it was more regular for a back. The lead back of the team. In this case, Eric Dickerson of the Los Angeles Rams at that point to have more carries than the team through pass. So he had really hundred seventy nine carries and all their passers and they had three different ones play mostly Jeff camp out of Dartmouth university, which is why he was running the ball, but they only three hundred and fifty eight total passes.

"A million restaurants but one guy towns willing to deal and waste management there's a scarcity of pass rusher there's eight great ones in the world there's a scarcity a quarterback's there's eight in the world this past nfl draft had eight draftable backs in six bills okay saquon barclays i watched todd gurley play sixteen games last year he's unbelievable zeke elliott unbelievable rois freeman saquon barkley could come in georgia had two guys they could be really good scarcity is drives often your work in the other thing about that is i agree with you but the other thing about that is is that the majority of teams let's call it twenty eight teams have three backs philadelphia eagles won the super bowl as year not one guy how two thousand yards no i think they're i think the best running back differs four hundred yards rushing those runner bag by committee teams that are winning super bowls have great quarterback so the better the quarterback you can deal with lesser telling skill position for the overwhelming majority of the league you need to do to alleviate the pressure on the quarterback alex smith season is not a coincidence that kareem hunt came in and was a difference maker as impact all right to another guy looking for a new deal aaron rodgers currently makes a fraction of lesser quarterbacks kirk cousins and matt ryan packer president mark murphy says both sides of the common interest getting a deal done and pro football talk mike florio has a novel suggestion for how to give rogers do writing quote here's an idea inspired by the news the packers generated four hundred fifty four million gross revenue and thirty four million profit rogers should basis total pay not on the salary cap but on the money this publicly traded business earns whitlow rogers currently the tenth has paid quarterback he's underpaid right no he's getting pay would he negotiate and you know he'll be in position to go she ate a better deal you know i florio i just think needed to clicks you know maybe he should write about how i should be married to holly beary and jennifer aniston i guess that would be nice for aaron rodgers be paid base on how much revenue they generate but it's not gonna happen we keep feeding of this narrative of something oh my god something's wrong here with with aaron rodgers airlines negotiated this deal he's about to renegotiate a different deal but i don't think he should be trying to be the highest agree here in the league i think he should be trying to do a deal so they can have the best team in the league by the way take just talk about salary cap leagues hockey nba football monster contract equals less flexibility green bay struggles with free agents to begin with like their buffalo in green bay or at a decided freeagent disadvantage the weather whatever market size now you're gonna add that less cap flexibility by the way tom brady's never been highest paid quarterback who cares tim duncan never highest paid player who cares jordan for ninety percent of his career highest paid guy who cares nobody talks about it a bar twenty years later you know this area was the third highest paid quarterback they talk about you know he should have one too but ted thompson could never get employers errands legacy right now he's outperforming his contract joe flacco is legacy the contracts performing him which legacy would you rather have i think erin people are gonna aaron no he's outperformed his money they're on his side there has to be a market correction for air because at the end of the day the money that is the screen is how people view you as being respected for aaron rodgers everybody when he looks at kirk cousins their cord jimmy garoppolo and all these other guys tipping the thirty million dollar mark and he's at twenty two million he certainly wants to be recognized as the.

"Affecting them wins and losses for that team we saw it last season he was out for six games dow's didn't look good at all that prescott regressed he needed he needed zeke elliott out there okay so that just does brian isn't that player for the cowboys anymore and i just think they're so if you're thinking okay he's not putting up the numbers he wants did and he's probably not going to cause the offense we run in order to cater to dak prescott is not putting up the numbers getting paid sixteen and a half million and he doesn't really affect a win win or loss total for our team do you really want to keep a guy like that i say no i think thomas you would say no right the thing is best for both parties if you cut a guy like desert bryant let them go off possibly you hang out with the team like tennessee i know the rams out there licking the niners pot that's a that's a solid option right third jimmy garoppolo does have the arm and i think he is a guy who could throw guys open the one of my favorite because they're locking obviously appear coming back and then marquees go having that breakout your last year got that good contract earned that contract i feel but those those are both more like mid mid route mid level receivers obviously goodwin's speed and take the top off the defense but i feel like i mean obviously that small more small framed does is that big frame i mean he's he's all of six two but he's he's got that big big frame good hand size i mean he can pull the ball down like you said jimmy garoppolo is going to be that guy who's going to throw people open so does the niners that's my hot take does the niners actually it makes sense there too because the fact that does where to get cut by the cowboys and against his speculations as isis filling up beside me.
