"This is a totally different situation to say. It's a nocco. zeke elliott. Well first of all it is. You denied all you want to. But it is. That's number one and number two. The show. Yuma level of objectivity marc spears. I have to give myself credit. Where credit's due. Did you know that is in my best interest for ezekiel elliot to run for two thousand yards this year because this is my first year ever played fantasy football. And he's the running back that i picked. Do you see that level of objectivity that i have had the fifth overall pick so i grab them and i grabbed ezekiel elliott because but first before running backs that i wanted all gone so it just shows you. I'm not completely off the cliff when it comes to the dallas cowboys. It doesn't cloud my objectivity and i'm still here to tell you despite what you just said. Based on what. I've seen the first two games with him. Averaging what about fifty three and a half yards a game. I don't see him. Russia for a thousand yards this season last season. And i think you know why. I don't think i don't see him. One thousand yard because if the two games are any indication marcus i see them giving some of his carries the polar. And by the way let me ask you a very generic logical question per se. We do anything that says he should have less garish. No exactly no. He's only to get more if he keeps playing this way so that even reality. That's go- compromise ezekiel stephen. They can we. Can we not look at football through this through the lens of they do different things..

"Through two games. He's averaging nearly twice as many yards per. Carry as elliot nearly twice as many receiving yards. Here's jerry jones on his running back situation the practice salah that We really have an outstanding situation. Here that Pilot gets up on him so fast and can Really surprised the defense. he's stronger. They looks but he just got so sudden got such a burst and then they they describe him. He's is a powerful in terms of amyloid. Overuse the work but his first day eat punishes l. out of those defenders. Both of those are going to be a real staple for us as we get into your boy. jerry jones. is this a knock on. ezekiel elliott. Personally it is. And i'm not saying that it's a knock zeki elliott in terms of just what jerry jones says. There's been some talk about some slippage in regards to zeke elliott. Now i've seen him lose the weight off seen him look fast. But i'm looking at pilot. How strong. He is deceptively strong. How a vase if he is quick bursts out of the gap. What he's able to do running the football. And i'm seeing god. That only has that has eleven less carries on the season thus far but still has more yards rushing. Then ezekiel elliott now. Zeal ellie was averaging five yards a carry throughout his career until last year we had dipped to four. We understand that dak prescott going down and game. Five of the season had a lot to do a compromise level of productivity..

"If if you told me team with twelve and five or eleven six out of that division i would think it would be dallas just because of the firepower that we saw offensively and you know maybe they could get some turnovers like they did. Last night you know digs with the pick off of lender for bobble So that that would be my. I think the the the ceiling is the highest Of dallas of any team in division. I'm sitting here thinking about ceiling. And i know i've weighed in on this before and i think that i did a best case. Worst case segment with on the radio. And i think maybe tommy and i did it As well and i think i said you know best cases actually like eleven and six or twelve and five like they put everything together. I'm not so sure dallas's best case is that much better than washington's. I just think the chances of them Achieving their best case like i think there are fewer. Well they had the quarterback. I mean that's the bottom line. Washington washington could get great quarterback play from fitzpatrick like he's played the last couple of years and it would be a significant upgrade. And then you combine that with everything else. They have and they'd have a pretty pretty good upside if fitzpatrick as well. But prescott really is and is developing into a star quarterback. He really was sensational last night. And i know it's one game. I already talked about it earlier in the show. I understand one game but if dallas is offense is what we saw last night especially against that defense. No matter how banged up it was before and during the game last night I think my pick to to for them to win. The division is going to hold up Is that your pick in the nfc east I thought about so. I said this Earlier this morning. But i said if there were no odds out of dallas but the way we think right. I looked at the giants at plus four fifty. And i'm like well. I just rather play that I actually didn't make a bet on this division but I would agree. And and here's a couple thoughts just on on what we saw last night. Right zack. Martin was out right. Zeke elliott says the best player on their team. And he's in play and dak prescott had fifty eight fifty nine and he was sacked once by defensive. Line that tortured. Patrick mahomes So that's pretty encouraging. Michael gallup was her and they still do for over four hundred yards Zeke elliott didn't do anything on the run game actually thought looked at times. okay thought he had burston is cuts which is impressive. It's funny i you know it's funny i went on. I do a morning show In milwaukee And you know they. In one of the hosts zeke sucks. And i'm like you know what i'm the first to basham. Because he looked like kraft last year. Fatten outta shape like actually look decent last night. they just. They weren't able to run the ball. I thought his cut and his his explosiveness was actually pretty good So that's scary To if he's gonna perform at decent level but you know to your point about feeling and war. I think washington might have the highest floor because we saw what happens and back gets hurt. They suck and.

"Good thing that he was throw. Excuse me for all those yards so that understood it and so he said he's gonna come out faster. Play better this year. It was the act to use the term faster than last year. I don't think he meant throw for more yards. I think he meant get out early and get his team on the board in the first half so they don't have to play from behind like that route. No i mean you don't wanna play from behind. You don't wanna fall down fall behind by twenty one points in the first half or whatever it was ugly and then this is what even tony dungy said you remember. He got criticized because seemed insensitive when he said that. You know it'd be a blue. It was a blessing in disguise. That getting hurt because now the cowboys can go back to to running the football. You remember that like. That's when they were having their most success. When it was about zeke elliott and dak was mixing in and making the third downs in the past is that they need in that context. And that's why all games numbers by themselves. Don't always tell the real story too has to be in context and the cowboys have one more win. Dak hasn't thrown for big numbers period. Those are facts so so you can look at it and say oh this guy. Might those six thousand yards and fifty five touchdowns in the offense and look at all the receivers but last year went last june one in six against playoff teams. They couldn't beat anybody. And i think the number one is it two and ten there too and ten in in their last twelve games or dad is to in ten buys last twelve games against teams with winning records. I mean what is it. Seventeen rob in the last twenty three. This is what this what we're talking about. That's not winning football. The reason i've liked dax so much as you know. I'm big on the intangibles. I felt like he had those leadership. He's a winner. Galvanized the locker room get players to believe in him so on and so forth. I like his character. But i always viewed him raw as a gay measuring. This shouldn't be an insult. Shouldn't be viewed as an insult. I viewed him as a game manager. Who could make plays with his legs and his arm like not. I never viewed as a guy like an error. Rogers or someone of data that you just. He puts the team on his back. He throws for three hundred fifty yards and four touchdowns and lead you to victory essentially whether you gotta running game or not. That's not dax strength to me to me. That strengths are his smarts. Decision making the intangibles. As i said. And he's a gay manager capable. Some gay marriages aren't capable of making big plays and those are the ones where it's kind of an insult but back. I viewed as a gay manager. Who was capable of making big plays in both ways his arm and his legs. And we've seen him do it with his legs to and now somewhat largely rob because of the demise of ezekiel elliott in that running game. He's kinda hat to morph into this guy. Throwing follow these yards..
"zeke elliott" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"Is thursday it is the day the day has finally come fez. The nfl kicks off tonight. Dallas tampa or to eight and a half still or we have we touched nine yet. Eight and a half not that it matters. I wonder nine mostly nine at this point. Do you think that in this is Rj would probably know better than you may be. The dastardly. The guy who talks about the dastardly bookies g think eventually we're going to see game like where books just stop giving out eight and eight and a half for teaser reasons and just make it go straight to nine. Yeah teaser. protection makes complete sense. You should never as a bookmaker. In my opinion deal game minus-eight mice one ten in each direction. If i was the dastardly. A bookmaker i would deal all those games minus nine plus one. Oh five plus nine lay dollar twenty. Five's those are called teaser. Protection lines and then make good sense because why give the betters a favorable bet against you and for the most part. If you have good teaser. Odds taking an eight point. Favorite down to two as a teaser. Leg is indeed an advantage play provided you're only paying mice one twenty or less on that. Caesar and i know books are charging more and more for teasers now than they used to. But until it's priced out it's still an it's an advantage play. If you play you know the the proper teasers it can still be a profitable thing. Yeah freeze it. Minus one twenty is the sticking point in my opinion teasers. As soon as books charge you more than mice. One twenty six point. Nfl teasers you can no longer beat them for the most part so that really is the point that the advantage players would stop playing in them and the database would agree with that all right. Let's I let's let's get into tonight's game The cowboys and the bucks. You have a prop for this game. Yes zeke elliott. I am going under fifty four rush yards now. If you look at zeke's year average at the books have put up there expecting him to run for eleven hundred yards. That's about sixty five per game. So what am i doing. Going under. Fifty four when the bookmakers. Oh aware that. This is a tough match-up and they've lowered his number well they haven't lowered it enough. If you look at the tampa bay rush defense it's awesome last year held opponents to the lowest rush yards on average per game eighty two. That's about thirty percent less than nfl average. So if i took that sixty five number that we expect on average for zeke and lopped off thirty percent now all of a sudden. I'm down around fifty already. This looks to be a pretty good wager under fifty four but wait. There's more the dallas o. Line is dealing with cluster issues right now and that should really compromise their ability to run the ball that helps her bet as well if dallas is unable to have successful runs and further the way. I expect the game to play out. There's an excellent chance to tampa bay will have a substantial lead in the second half there in aden half point favorite after all if that transpires i expect very few runs to zeke in the second half and that will compromise his ability to rack up yards as well. Add it all up. Zeke elliott under fifty four rush yards. Mckinsey you said. You had something on zeke tonight as well. Yeah like his over in receiving yards repeat handicapped ditto offensive line expect to struggle and how how to counteract that. I think mccarthy and the boys will think quick passes to. They're probably most athletic skill position player. Okay now the lines. Have to the point where i and honestly it feels to me. That game feels like either tampa pass. Which i don't wanna i don't wanna play tampa now that the numbers gotten where it's gotten to. I can't in good conscience play dallas. That i mean really at any number of. That's not ten. And i in good conscious can't play tampa because i had all summer delay sick. Exactly six and a half seven seven and a half eight so it sounds like props or the the way that most sharp people are going to be attacking this game tonight. If they didn't get in already yes or they can certainly play the teaser. because when you're capturing three through seven corridor. It's so valuable. That i have no problem. At all with tampa teaser. Even at the current number. In fact. I like it. And there's you know. There's several good tease options. If you like the colts teasing the colts up Is a good one. You could tease them through three and seven. I'm going to disagree okay. And here's why the colts line against seattle is not to an aphid. I would say it's two point seven five. It's been going back and forth between two and a half and three if i'm going to tease through three and seven. You wanna full. I want a full monty on the three where i'm getting. I'm not starting two point seven or two point eight. I want to start at two or two and a half and so because of that. The three that really fall into the bucket of advantage teasers. The rams would probably be my favorite myself down to my myself down to one. F the forty niners my seven down to minus one and a half. Don't like that quite as much the road favorites a little less dependable historically to cover that teaser or certainly the washington football team if you have plus one ts washington up nephew. Do play the washington. Teaser you gotta get washington up to plus seven half say. Play six and a half point teaser. If that's the case can't be teasing team up. The plus seventy seven half. Is there value in teasing down to like from for instance the chiefs who were six right now. Teasing them down to a pick him. No and here's why essentially whenever you're playing a teaser. You're playing a team. Alternative spread parlay where you're laying if you're laying must one twenty. That's like laying mice to eighty on each one of the legs individually. Well if you like. Kansas city to win just play the money line. You shop around should be able to get a minus two sixty so get cheaper price playing the money line on kansas city than putting them in the first leg of teaser so basic strategy six point favorite. Never tease them. Be like him to win. Just play the money line there. You go all right. Let's talk about some season win. Totals we've talked about season. When told us a lot on this pod over the last four or five weeks but it's always moving. It's it's a. It's an alive creature this market. Tell us what you've got a most recent on so big picture and we spoken about this before. I like unders. When i'm playing season wins. I'm looking to selectively play unders. I have one specific. One that i'm going to give out the reason i like unders. Is that everyone else. The public they loved about overs. People like to bet on their teams. It's week one. Everyone is flowing with optimism about how their team is going to compete. And do well and we see that in the marketplace the average total seventeen games for an nfl team should be eight and a half right. It's not it's eight point six. So it's it's.

"Of a hater. But okay i'll out rushing yards. Well you had two carries for twelve against cleveland. And that was. They put up thirty eight points in that game. Can i give some credits at. How can i give out a rare cowboy over Really all right. Zeke elliott over twenty and a half receiving yards. Ooh okay that had that pass rush is going to be all over dak. And which is what concerns me about the rushing yards. I liked the angle though because of his leg and so I went to a slightly different one. I think they're going to get some screen games. It's it. Is mike mccarthy after all they're gonna find zeke in the passing game. This is what three catches. he's there. Yeah to catches. So i'm gonna take a cowboy over cowboy named zeke and we're not talking about his weight not not trying to fat shame or anything but not at all. I think he goes over here. So one of those five pick entries that we just gave out twenty dollars to pay two hundred ten x hashtag. Can i will. Also i'm gonna replace swift and give you a bonus.

"The hall of fame. No tell you about the owner of the dallas cowboys. Why would he say this. Tony was like a son to what's his biggest frustration says jerry jones is one regret about his. Tony romo what does it tell you about. Jerry's feelings about his current quarterback. If i'm the current quarterback. I don't love that he's saying it really. I'll be job i was. He was so good he didn't get his job. Back and rookie fourth round. Pick right and i beat him out. And once upon a time tony romo was undrafted out of eastern right. So let me say this as a lifelong cowboy fan. Tony romo is the most or was the most frustrating maddening quarterback. I ever tried to root for. Because i promise you. He had some hall of fame stretches hall of fame flashes. He was the comeback kid he had twenty four fourth quarter comebacks in twenty four game. Winning drives pretty high on the all time list but he could also when you least expect it turned into a choking dog and yet that one year in two thousand fourteen he led this league in completion percentage and led it in qbr and capped it off. I thought with a win. Over aaron rodgers back in his home state of wisconsin at green bay in a playoff game it all down it was fourth and to remember the throw that he made the dez bryant. There it is. He caught it. He caught it and he scored with it. And if this is just classic bad luck romo because the ref he rises arms. He's right on the spot touchdown he signals. And they overturn it and cost the cowboys. This game that they should've won they could have gone on to seattle to play the nfc championship game against the seattle. They had beat at battle that regular season. That'll mean that won't super bowl here is being made tony. Romo a made man. Yeah there's twenty twelve. He led the league in interceptions and he made four pro bowls and he was known as a tough guy who could be so fragile. How many times did he break collarbone. Sixteen dive right and yet. How did his career star off. When did i. I really lock in on tony romo. He's in seattle at a playoff game. Bobble snap a chip shot field goal to win the game at the end of the game. At what's should've foreshadowed thing was it. Was tony tony ono. there is up. Whoops i'll run this in. He really couldn't run. He had good. Quick babylon carter in the back. He did he caught him from the back. Really and yet the all time classic tony romo game was when he threw for five hundred six yards against your denver broncos back in twenty thirteen the final scores fifty one to forty eight. Because after tony romo had thrown five touchdown passes and no interceptions we get down to the bitter into the game and all the sudden get sacked on the first play and on second along. He throws it to the wrong team. Danny trevathan what are you doing. Tony and gives payton a chip shot field goal to walk off fifty one. What are the great performances. You'll ever see that wasted got wasted with with one of the year and he had demarco murray right there in front of us get washed demarco. Murray looking demarco murray. I only went blind. Just went blind. I don't know i couldn't some up. His he threw for five. Oh six and five touchdowns against your denver broncos lost fifty one to forty eight because that's pretty much. The story of his career had he won two playoff games. What ten eleven years and was controversy goes against detroit it only he remembered they beat donald. Buka nab andy reid the last game season and turn right around and got him in home playoff game and beat him a second dubbing..

"Thousand dollars three books. You know everybody that works in jerry. Jerry tells them how to fame. Okay what was jimmy. What was okay what was it. What was troy yes. Well we'll tell you to this day. I get to throw a whole lot. They were not a passing though he was a great thrower of the football but he he his stats. If you look choice stats pedestrian. Because he was stuck being pedestrian because they handed the ball off the emmett sixty percents. We ask you all. Russia often off. The thing was an it was a different type of running back.

"Saw last year it's laughable even putting thanks for right now not even top running back all these guys that i've mentioned she's off last year. Top twenty maybe maybe top teams best misty. Five yards a game far. That's not good sixteen carries a game last year. Plus you said you believe that twenty pollard is going to get some touches so good to me tory. Politics of his office transition from more of a passing attack running attack. How do you think he has a bounceback season. So i'm gonna say no. He does not have a bounce back season. What's it bounceback season. Skip because we think. Zeke elliott we think of the premier running back with thinking thirteen fourteen. Fifteen hundred yards. I don't see thirteen. Fourteen fifty yards out of that body out of considering that the offensive generated from a run tomorrow of pass. I don't skip. I have told you all preseason long i just have a gut feeling number twenty one is going to bounce back. I can't put a number on bounce back. I'm not suggesting he's going to lead the league in rushing the way he did in average yards per game. The first three years and we're years in the first year was the monster year. It was like a carryover from ohio state and he just kept ohio stating right on in dallas. And he's that other final game has sixteen hundred yards. He ran away with the russian. Tom and i haven't seen quite that guy ever since because his yards per game have declined every every year down to sixty five yards from one zero nine as a rookie also four is that a precipitous drop. I'd say that's considered a job. But i'm seeing a different zeke in every way shape and form and training camp. Because clearly he got him a nutritionist. Even us i'm eating a little candy and one of the meetings. I'm okay with that. You can cheat every once in a while because he looks one hundred percent better than he looked last year. He looks like sleek zeke. he finally got it is too late in your nfl life to get it the way you got it early on you just got you are what you eat trip in the end you just are right. You are how you train but in the beginning you can't overcome what you eat. What you eat can't do agree with that back in my maniac running days i used to think i can pick out. I can eat anything trust me. I was averaging two. For one of the marathons i was averaging twelve miles a day and then on sunday twenty miles in always eaten mexican food ice cream eaten. Everything and i was gaining weight. Yeah house gaining body fat as much heavier than i am right now because you can't run it off right. So the point is your nutritionist. Is the key. To the rest of your. Nfl life did that. He lost his double chin. He looks like a running. And i showed you the video. The nfl films video. I know just practice. I know they weren't really even tackling was against each other. You know but he looked explosive the way he looked in his first couple of years. So now i'm reading my friend. Dan graziano on espn dot com and his quote. Was it a. Don't be surprised if prediction about the cowboys ezekiel bounces back. I've been saying it all year. And he said what i'm hearing. Yeah it's easy to roll your eyes when you hear the same old. He's in much better shape. Stop get it. He said i get it but by all accounts inside the cowboys building where he has been ezekiel..

"That even mean okay. We'll so he's saying that's a great question because it was the coach who decided that right and aaron clearly is seconding. The emotion of i like it. I wanted to go for. He's saying he loved his teammates. He loved the coaching staff others. Yes made it about is more about something else then relationships. That's what he's saying. He never said he had a problem with matt leflore. As matter of fact he said he liked matt. Laporte is off season and his teammates without wasn't liking matla. Fleurs choice right by the way. What head coach would say okay. It's fourth and goal at the eight. Let's go for right because you'd see no sign of life right to that point in in you know and i know fourth and go from the eight. That's hard in heart now. That's why i said on third day you should have run. Don't get this right now. Two four to one. That's a whole certainly not a fourth place. Get okay. I got it tom brady. That's the point. Is that now. We go to the top and to your point. It was mark murphy. The ceo packers who was quoted. I believe bleacher. Report said that he called aaron. Tell him i have hired matt lebron or you had nothing to do this to you. This is your next head coach and he finished that discussion with. Don't you be the problem. Reportedly air would've arm around mark murray braggadocious. Now what was he does that business. I would like to have been a fly on mark. Murphy's wall whenever he sees this post when he saw his today or last night or whenever it was because he is going to roll his eyes and say well there he goes again. He's trying to started up now. We just got through all our off season drama. Why would you re suggest it like. Why would you plant new. Seeds of all are they. Are you being sarcastic. Because you're the one who took the shot at him on jeopardy right they say the you said that you had a problem with not going down. Obviously he has gone back and forth and been pretty. Scathing publicly about brian goudie. Dry just doesn't respect you. Trust him doesn't like him but extend it a little bit of an branch. He went and got randall. Cobb back form okay. Then over the cuts. There's one kid that aaron heads talk glowingly about you got cut. But still he got him. Randall cobb so they're probably brandon. Came back on practice. Well okay you got it but yesterday goons talked publicly about how. He's trying to make it better with aaron. And here's what he said. I've had really good conversations throughout ten with aaron and bat. And and i think the communication has been really really good and so the as we went into this kind of decision making period. I think The all people that are involved in that were Very aware of what was going on..

"Well i've told you. Lebron wanted to make that move because number one he could show the world that he could win with russ when nobody else could even get close to winning.

Tv watching now have that same. I will come in here every day after those games. I'm going to say i told you. We fixed one in twenty one and the number one seed in the win. I'm gonna say see. I told you skill really. Yeah we're all really tell you. So when the post season commenced clippers probably won't go wait until it comes back full stroke coming back in two hundred twenty one. Twenty two hundred told you march. You'll be ready by april and here. We go but anyway good. Let them just lay in the weeds for awhile so last year. Schreuder for the lakers played a career. High thirty two minutes game and that went up to thirty three in the postseason okay. That's pretty heavy minute right Last year russell westbrook for the wizard played a career. High thirty six minutes. That went up to thirty seven in the postseason. A lot of minute right okay. My math is jarring here. Because i'm having tried to figure out. See their forty eight total minute game. How are you going to divvy these up and keep everybody happy here. Because the odd man out seems to be rajon rondo rondo get like eighteen minutes because remember skipped crusoe got twenty one minutes out the bitch. Russell is not gonna play thirty six minutes. We're gonna try to. We're gonna keep me is low because come playoff time. That's when we're gonna go about thirty six meters but in the regular season which trying to keep all these guys wouldn't probably that's actually be around thirty thirty five but if we can keep russell's minute somewhere around thirty three bras around thirty two okay buddy layoffs. Bron is not going to sit still plan thirty two minutes a night because he's chasing kareem abdul to play minute skip it. We got to a point last year. We're we're like at midseason. He was leading the league in minutes. Play remember that this will suddenly say i give up my back off but if you know what it is. That's why they come up with the airport in the crock pot. It wasn't so you can cook longer so you can cook smarter. I won't go home to see some broccoli. i have. Broadly gave me some carrot. Put an.

"They're going to be compared and contrasted because one team decided. I'll take him over him. And you know the story and you go back and forth portrays coming on but lucas. This is the fourth. And i'll go luke over trae. I'm not the biggest luca fan but that it's just going to be an ongoing debate. And luca i mean sorry trae. Close the gap a little bit similarly. Maybe these aren't as glamorous. A players in the national football ability decided their quarterback got it. I got it but still you use the word impactful. I say both are going to be hugely impact. This and i'm about to argue a little bit against myself. I went on record before the draft. You ought to pass ahead you badly. His father was a really good. Nfl cornerback and he mirrors his father. And i just liked him in interviews. He's so mature for his age. He's so confident. In a good way in at that position confidence as everything can get destroyed at the corner back as quickly as it can at quarterback. Just lose all faith in you. Just get lost allah. You're on an island. And i believe he is a lockdown. Shut down solo corner that you can put on on that best receiver and say we're okay. We don't have to worry about him. i'm not saying he's dion. He's a pro bowl. Cornerback yes and i believe. He is destined to knock on wood for him. Just injury wise. If he stays healthy reasonably happy he could make ten twelve straight pro bowls his quality that caliber of a player. He's more athletic than his dad. He's bigger than his dad. Believe if technique is better than his dad whether that point obviously give his dad taught him so he went to a top notch program. Highschool i think. Saint thomas aquinas. He went to the best program. And all the football in college football alabama. So he coaches the defensive. yes okay so skip. I believe that he. He's he's equipped okay to be in this moment so unfortunately for me. Your denver broncos were sitting at nine and my cowboys were sitting at ten in the first round and rut fasttrack right. And i'm sitting there. And i know my cowboys were sitting on patrick tan. I just believe with all my heart and soul. They were poised to take him at ten. And you know what happened right. Inverse said no. We thought denver might take a quarterback. Right i i wasn't sure i right thought they might take a quarterback. Also the justice fields was sitting laying there jones city. Okay so dallas's shocked like they pull the rug right out from underneath us right. And so jerry says okay. I'm out in so. They moved back to slots because philly. Excuse me one to go up to ten right to get devante right. And they trade back to slots to twelve. Because now they're saying well next on our board is your guy you said should have been i on their mike. Parsons my issue. With michael was he had opted out of the previous cova purposes the previous year. So i didn't get to see a final year of him at stay when i did my the previous year he would flash off my screamed absolute because he is everywhere on the football field. Okay now i'm going to hark back speaking of impactful to what the great jimmy johnson taught me from star when he first took over. Nineteen eighty nine said. I believe at any level. Nfl college high school. You win with pass rush and cornerbacks and they go hand in hand. Obviously they doing. Sometimes you're cornerbacks can save your pass rush. You don't have much of it and many times. The pass rush can save the cornerback but he said those are his two priorities on the defensive song..

This big guy guys who've been playing on the practice squad they did away with any age said gear gilbert. He goes back on the practice squad. Okay i was a little bit league like eight nine years. I i don't know which border practice quiet remember last year. Skip philadelphia head. What would the quarterback mccown. He was on the practice even though he was coaching high school. So if they need a quarterback in a pitch they would call him. Okay so my point is. My emotions are mixed. Because will greer's sh- i just gut feeling he'll he'll be better than cooper rush cams better than both put together to me so you just gotta do. But i feel like jerry. Put his pride on the line. Because he was raving about cooper rush and now listen. Jerry's pride is enormous because he want especially his suit ball. Gm if he goes out there. Let me tell you how good this kid is. And then it's hard to back off right. Well jerry will be correct until cooper raj has to play as long as he doesn't have to place give. There's no way to dispel. Woodyear has said about cooper rush. Only when he gets his blood mcgee. Yep everybody little. The back of giving really has to play. Yeah we won't we will him. We will heal and go to big blue gained about the game. Well he looked great against the houston. Texans but what did you tell me is the houston texans at the in the preseason game and then follow up to the game four for them. The last one this past sunday he looked very good to be is jacksonville. No okay though the two of the worst team in the league and they haven't been the same vision you would you and i both know if something and hopefully nothin happened today. You and i both know tablets not winning division of dak not your quarterback. Yeah but listen seriously. I saw cam. The last time i saw cami went eight or nine. He looked he looked really good. I said the kid looked a little better. Yes and that's what bill check. Finally decided with the point is that. Would i love to have that eight out of nine cam as my quarterback for three or four game right. Yes yes. I got a shot seriously. I got a shot with him. I believe he can go win games. Because he's a playmaker he's been there and done all got a bit tense winning game with him as you do. Then you do cooper rush and by the way you realize camp is to and against brady. He's too so we do have a game out there foxborough. Brady's there but we gotta go there to kale cameras. One gave them as league. He's one playoff games. He went to go into a super bowl. There's not pretend like it's been a bomb. Yeah camp quarterback rookie of.

"We know the importance of this. I just didn't like the fact that he minimize it. Knowing give code belichick knows all the rules if hard for me to see a scenario a guy that he says i wet the ball down the heat the ball i to feel because i'm preparing them for everything. I'm trying to win How did he not know the protocol to what cam couldn't couldn't do he could leave. He couldn't leave it. What was going to be required of you. Yeah it's hard for me to see a scenario in which that didn't happen and for you to minimize it. The wage skip took the words out of the kickoff players. Get concussions but it greatly reduced the number of concussions coach belichick. You know that you should be ashamed of yourself. You should be embarrassed. You should be trying to promote the vaccine. Make sure all the nfl and a lot of america become more vaccinated so we can get past this pandemic. But you minimize and cut the hurric- dixie. Because a lot of times the a lot of times people of coach take care a lot of weight and people lino. They're looking for a reason not to get the vaccine not just gave them another one. But i'm dead. I'm very disappointed that he said that. Mr sharp i hear you. I applaud you. I echo everything you just said but now let's look a little deeper into why bill belichick said what he said. He was angry in the key. Line the the flash point for me was when he was asked about cam not being vaccinated. Was it a factor. He gave it a big bad flat. No then he said look you guys keep talking about that This is the coach. Who says i don't hear anything i don't watch i don't read. I don't know i coach football. I keep my head down. You guys do whatever you do. Which is why in every post game media session. He he works harder than any coach in the history of this league to say nothing absolutely so look you guys keep talking about that. He was angry yesterday because he had chosen this kid to be his star. He had blessed him. Yup he had sit the veteran on his way out the door because he thinks he has his answer to. Tom brady and he is furious. That you shorting you with you. Shannon sharpe have undercut that have discredited his plunging ahead with max jones by by suggesting that it's a little bit by default that he chose mack jones because cam didn't get vaccinated. So it's discrediting the kid a little bit. It's undercutting what he achieved through training camp..
"zeke elliott" Discussed on The Nat Coombs Show
"Four five on both at critical station is what are probably against what he didn't even get such and he was not only costing same position. Surnames costing the cowboys points precious points. That couldn't afford to give up given the situation. They found themselves as you say with all those interests. The offensive line with backup quarterbacks in as well dallas needed to be playing well they need leaders that veterans to stand up and be counted. And zeke elliott. Just didn't have good year last time around. He does that. he's well aware of the question though now is canny bounce back and beat the player. That dallas pavements debate and that's the great unknown where the funds with him today find. I mean clearly an incredible talent but is there a sense. That is a bit mood. You know some players have a bit of an attitude and oto beckham's at other one that does right. whether it's fair or not he has. This persona jay cutler goes maybe story asleep where fans feel that that slightly aloof or just not really not really playing the game. The way they'd like some people are that zeke is that fair defines maybe the womb tomb and same way. They do to other plays a history. Eight say he's been overpaid but when you look at modern day. Nfl and show. We'll discuss nick shove as well contracts. He's just signed a bay. In in. cleveland look zeke. Elliott's the money. He's got his agent assure he's done very well. And but from southbound zeke elliott in the steel but the problem as in a bone day. Nfl sunday a huge chunk of your salary. Cap is position just quite frankly isn't valued as much as it once was in this league. And when you pay that so the money that players dots to deliver. And zeke elliott has been the player that everybody dallas knows. He can't bake for a good couple of years now. This wasn't just a won't see some wonder la last time out. And that's why the question marks hanging over him in the offensive line going into this season. I think i'm really saying is grated six. They were all in the nfl by pro football. Focus that if they stay healthy now they will create the lanes. If that's the case. But zeke elliott has got to have that burst and be able to break tackles like we saw in the first two or three years of his career and earl that you churn out the stats big. That he did put up last year. They were luckily down on the year before and the and before they were down the previous as well so that the overall trend isn't a good one because he kelly and that's what he's going to turn around and that's why the fans has his neck. Yeah it's a great point you make because we see this. I guess in so many different sports. But when you get to that at look everyone i- disparaging about the new show. I mean this guy's an elite athlete could do things. I can dream right but go up and up getting the very best of the best of the best. That's a perception that every time you touch the ball every time you're involved and you'll go to do something extraordinary and i guess that is accentuated when the team is struggling and the logic he's while particularly and hit with this position if the line around. He's bad there's no passing game then of course it's going to be incredibly difficult for you to be as productive as you typically are. The counter-argument is well. That's exactly what. I need you to make something happen because the light is bad. There's no there's no area tax. So i do see both sides and i wish i would. I would say if you look at their back. Authored last season seems what loading the box against the cowboys. Kelly when they knew that. Zeke elliott was the only real weapons they had they hatched. You have dr gilbert quarterback. Oh the rookie quarterback of there in philly. They were putting seventy in the in the box. And zeke elliott still wasn't breaking those big runs out of hand but i'm fairly sure he can count on one hand. How many runs if yasser boise. It had in the mold of la season now that that is a a k staff. Somebody likes as one that needs to change this season. If he's dead to live up to that contract did daddy dimes have more twenty. Plus runs in zeke elliott last season other. Let's let's look at the rivals then because on paper. You're right that that that there's any argument the cowboys absolutely offensively and i think collectively of the strongest team in the nfc. We've talked about the formidable defence of the washington football team failure in transition estate flux the giants and maybe the most intriguing tons of winnow. Quite sure where they're going to be gone all in on danny dimes. Because they've given him golladay they've given him. The invested in the draft is wild and spent big in the receiver position that shoots minority interesting receiving coal saquon now a lot of issues about how he's going beat if he's even going to start a season right but when he factor in you've got slate nego shepherd you've got judge a year in. Do we think the giants have may be going to be on the inside rail the biggest threat to dallas in terms of winning the division and perhaps washington are no. I'll i'll welcome the criticism. But i'll tell you why because it's a huge year for donnie dimes. As you seem to life to coyly right now know. John bans that puts their stumbles and say well. Let's have the nickname straight playing game. Because his is a been a killer for that josh. See over the last couple of a lotta them right. Yeah i mean it's not just the deceptions as fumbles He can't look after the bowl when when he gets faculty doesn't protect the ball. And that is an issue for both him and the new york giants football team but it starts with the offensive line in the trenches ad for only talked about the weapons and bringing cutting is a great signing acquisition stat receiving. Cool if you compensate the quarterback and give him saad sit during the pocket. You're not gonna make any us downfield. And that's still problems. What i see looking at the new york giants football same they haven't really upgraded on that offensive. Line yeah They didn't gel last year and they've got some improvements to do if they convinced me that against don't send us this time around they. Someone made the point. I quite recently. That when we look at what's in progressive. Look say what state. Washington is a parallel here. So that brilliant defensive front seven how many first round brad pitt in that mix rights four or five i think and the new giants offensive line just a perpetual work in progress that never seems to get any better constantly investigator revolving door right caught. They changed the name changed. The they change the bodies but the results is still say. Still the somebody's that quarterback gets a loss. And it's a problem if you daniel jets said criticism but if you're running field life time than i think there's mitigating circumstances saquon barclays a big mess if you have him in the lineup at a fully fit seguin barclay than you make the opposing defenses. Think when he's not a in that back sales. Well it's just as back and go after. The quarterback nashville. He's really to say. What does it over saying on your own about z. I wish him well. Because i do to your point about the running back position and we all going to talk about trump. And his deal. I am a slow long standing supporter off.
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
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

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. Jerry Jones said of Zeke, he's a bright
Todd Gurley, C.J. Anderson Lead Rams to NFC Championship with Win vs. Cowboys
"Ran for one twenty three two touchdowns Todd Gurley. One fifteen and another score on the ground. Rams burst playoff victory in fourteen years. Thirty two twenty two over the Cowboys. They're onto the NFC championship game. For the first time in seventeen years LA racked up a franchise playoff record, two hundred seventy three yards on the ground. The most ever allowed a postseason gay by the Cowboys were playing in their NFL record sixty third playoff game. Anderson post game with our Josina Anderson. Some people really understand what type of motivation that you came into this game with everything that had happened to you this season knowing that you had a career year last year and to have to one hundred and girly in this game. The biggest thing man. I I wanna give thanks to the man above for forgiving me the opportunity and then second, you know, you plan on the field with Todd Gurley Zeke Elliott. You know, I'm just trying to make my statement and make my step in this game too. How hard is it to have to basically feel like you have to prove yourself when you know that you can run and what you feel like you sold out here today and doing that every week every week every day. Relief from Denver releasing Carolina, released them all. You know, sitting there waiting on opportunity. So I just kept pushing myself, I never never not believe myself because by great right spots. And I'm glad the Rams talent you able to basically create those halls against this Cowboys deepens that was number one and yards allowed before contact coming into today picking the right spots. My ability workforce south just trying to break tackles trying to get the defenders trying to create big whereas off that looking at camera everybody who's ever been doubted. What you sold them tonight fifty Bryant man, if you've ever been down ever been misplaced overlooked fifty vitamin if you drink don't die to you give up on a potato keep working. And that's what I did. And that's what we're doing. And see you next week survive in advance. Thank you.
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.
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.
