I would call it to pittsburgh pittsburgh a short flight from buffalo taking care of business in buffalo coming off a short monday night game against the baltimore ravens in overtime. You've got to think that it's gonna wear and tear on the raiders a little bit but when you think about some of the things that they've got do against his tough style pittsburgh defense going into pittsburgh and try and win. The game against mike tomlin and being rob burger in. That group is going to be a tall task. they can get it done. I just don't see this week where it's going to get done. I love keys.

That competes weekend and week out year in. And you're out. 'cause lamar and harbaugh p. one of those.

"A more balanced attack. They gotta run. The football deck is putting up numbers. But they don't win. They don't win when he puts up those numbers that if If i'm looking at it. I don't know the analytics about it. There's somebody looking to say. This is what tony dungy pointed to when dad got hurt so this is not me or some other talking head or just somebody who does know football. This is tony done. You won a super bowl and he said it. It sounded like a slight of dak when he said it but he was like. This may be a blessing in disguise. This this might be great for the cowboys from the standpoint that they'll go back to running the football which is when they were at their best and i get it zico. Elliott's not the same guy. That's what i was gonna ask you ri- busy. Do you think he can can carry them like he did his first few years. But i think they need to try. If if because i would say to you that puts a big numbers. And they lose again. And zeke elliott has twenty five yards. Or he doesn't do anything at some point. You gotta figure out something with the running back. Because i don't think they're going to get where they want to get to without running the football effectively. Well you need some balance. There's no doubt about it. And kelly moore. They offer offense coordinator for the cowboys ride. He said they call twelve. Running place for ezekiel and dak checked out of him. Yeah zeke's zeke's best friend. So i i don't think he was doing you know he wasn't doing it to keep it from zeke. But that's what the defense looked like. They were giving him and he thought that those were better suited for pass plays but they do have to get some balanced. The interesting thing. Rob is that ezekiel elliott. He statistically you asked about like the analytics statistically he gets better he's best at its best between carey's eleven and twenty. He's he's much better at eleven through. How many did he have line. As at one through ten he had levin believe he likes to get warmed up. Eleven carries for thirty three yards. Exactly and they. I think you gotta get him at least fifteen carries and get that back and you know what else rob. Tony pilots not bad. He's not an every down back. But i like tony pilot too so however they do it if they have to do a running back by committee. I think they can do that. But i do. Think rob that. The days of the running game being their primary focus like they're not obviously the ravens but they're not even the browns and i say even i shouldn't even throw that in there because the browns have a tremendous running game but that's not who the cowboys are. I do believe rob dak is going to have to carry them..

"Much to avoid running the bars at all cause especially like Martin now and going to go going up against that defensive line. But the main point I wanted to make was, I think a running get What makes a good running game is, uh, the talent level of our offensive line or any offensive line. And how low coach they are. I think having a top tier running back is a luxury. But at the court, I think it comes down to how well How talented the old line is and how low coach they are. Um, again, I think the plenty fine. But if he's getting hit 12 to 3 times behind the line, there's not much you can do. Um, but I'm just talking in general are all over the NFL, but I just want to get some of your thoughts on that. I appreciate the phone call man. I hear what Cowboys were saying about Ezekiel Elliott. We think the Cowboys are winning a lot of games in which Ezekiel Elliott only touches the ball 13 times. He touched the ball 13 times in the game. He had 11 carries and two catches for six yards. All right. Maybe you think today's not the day for you to run the football effectively. We still would think that Ezekiel Elliot's one of their better offensive players, right? He looked good. He's lean. He's a top five guy, All right. Well, then be creative and how you give them the football. Some screens. Draw up some stuff to get a Zico Elliott free. The plan can't be let's just not use them today. That's what it felt like the plan was on Thursday night. We have this great weapon, but you know what? We're going to save them for next week against the Chargers, okay? I just thought their plan of being extremely one dimensional was very flawed Plan Now they almost one with that plan. A lot of it was kind of turnover margins. But the turnovers of the turnovers like you got to go out and you've got to create them and you've got to capitalize on the opportunities. But I think Ezekiel Elliott and how he plays this season and what he looks like. Is going to be interesting. Cowboys fans. Do you guys feel like Zico? Ellie, still a top five running back? Do you feel that way? Because last year he certainly wasn't and no team that I think has the running back. The caliber of Ezekiel Elliott would have used their running back as little as they did. I don't think Tennessee is doing that with Derrick Henry. Or Minnesota is doing that with Dalvin Cook. I was really surprised at how little he was just even on the field. On Thursday night. Mike McCarthy's and offensive minor head coach. If you don't think you can get it to him in the run game, and that's not what you want to do. Then give me a little bit of creativity and find a way to put the ball in his hands. He's one of your best offensive players. He can't help you stay there next to Mike McCarthy on the sideline. He can't help you standing next to Kellen Moore. Let's go back to the phone lines 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. Let's head back to Dallas, Ricky called into CBS Sports radio. Hey, Ricky! Hey, Hey, boss, So you touched on it quite a bit. I don't think Jack is the problem. I don't think Zeke is the problem. I don't think the office well, I do think the problem is that they're underutilized or not. They're not being creative enough and how they're being used. I think that puts up a lot of empty stats, and that's because they still have the same problem under McCarthy that they had under Garrett. Which is the guy that's calling the plays, and that's Kevin. More so I think the Jones family wanted to hit on the next young offensive mind like McVeigh, Kyle Shanahan. You know the next Andy Reid, so to speak, maybe, but I think they missed. I think they thought Kelly Moore was the guy and I don't think he's the guy, at least at at least not from what I've seen because Like you said. Zeke was very underutilized. It's almost as if he wasn't even there. And then when he did get the ball, it was kind of too late. It was almost like ineffective, so to speak, But, yeah, you can't win with that. Passing the ball 50 times. I mean, That he's just not that guy. It's better, uh, foredeck and for the whole offense when it's mixed. I 100% agree. I appreciate the phone call. I saw a stand. I believe that Dallas is O and four Whenever Dac has more than 50 passing attempts, and I think that that can handle the volume, I thought he handled the volume fine. I just don't think that's how you beat good teams. I think being that one dimensional and not utilizing your best players are just not how you're going to be the team the caliber. Of what Tampa Bay is. It's Tampa Bay didn't play their best but digest enough. To leave with the victory. You are listening to CBS Sports radio. We will keep your phone calls going 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 Keep it locked in. Right. Here is the Harrison experience. Let's head for CBS Sports Radio Update. See me? Yes for sports flag.

"Watching the game and i gotta go to the big board for this one. Can i what you got to be. flexible sale. Flexible run become came into the show layton so my mic pack might fall off head coach next year. And here's why cowboys fans don't y'all lost the game last night. You're actually one offensively. What do i mean by that. There were so many plays that dak prescott executed marvelously. That tell me y'all in great hands role. Play four minutes fifty two seconds left in the first quarter. What keller more does this call this. Green dalton scholtz at the tight end. He's gonna block for michael gallup okay. It's not a big gain but always a huge gain mentally because they call it by plays later same. Look this time defensive. Back he buys that prescott pump fake and now cd lamb to the house for six is greater game. Dak prescott played is great. A game as amari. Cooper in cd land played even though cd had drop kellen moore i think marcellus wiley actually had the best game of anybody in a cowboys uniform or a cowboys headset so my other huge takeaway from last night kelly moore is going to be a head coach next year and the cowboys offense is in great great hands. That's what i do interesting there. Okay you come on back over here. Big doll jack is waiting for you. let's talk about these books. Yes you keep talking about the cowboys kid. But i wanna talk about the winners. Who found another way to win but still got to be careful because they were flirting with complacency for flirting with danger i saw four giveaways yesterday. Now he'll mary. I hear you but still counselor stats sheet so look at kuna. Postseason books had one or fewer giveaways fourteen times last year. Forgive it was more than any game last season. Wait a minute. Are you getting a little loose with the football. Who gotta love the most on on the football field and ancient quarterback in nature. Best player it's that football. They protect the football last year. They protected the football better than they are off to this year. Ten second half points last night. I'm a dive into the details but scored the second most second half points in. Nfl last year. You think ten is gone. Keep them at that same pace. No that's in decline as well. Outscore three-point a second-half last night but they owned the nfl's best second half point differential. That's off from last year super bowl pace as well. Y'all gave up four hundred and three passing yards to dak prescott. Who was just coming off a surgery. Who was coming off the injury on top of surgery who was just coming off of injury and top of the surgery they had to is that you say. Oh my god. I don't even know if he could play this saying quarterback that went out there and do foreign and three passing yards last season. Only two quarterbacks four three seventy five and both of them were in losses interesting. They got away with one last night. I'll look at this team the tampa bay buccaneers and. I just hope that they understand who tom brady is. And i hope. Tom brady understands what his team is because his team has not been through the rigors he has yes gronk cast yes. You can isolate individuals but to the masses. They don't know what it takes. They're going out there with a repeat mindset. And i'm telling you if this team is trying to defend what they did last year as trying to us sent by what the team they have this year which is completely different despite the same personnel. They're going to run it to cases like this and find themselves on the losing in cowboys. Played a good to great game. Sr say great but ain't no way you can replicate this for the rest of the season. Without zeke zeke looked mason. Even though he didn't do he looked so good to not do jack. I've never seen a guy have so much spurt. Lean in a fish or a. He can use them yet. So the point is they got to find a balance in that for the cowboys out. There and play cowboys. Football was to me is a positive. They need that bounce attack. I love how we are talking about different things that shows. How big the game is. You're talking bucks. I'm talking cowboy. We're starting macro. We're going to go to the micro. Let me talk about zeke. A little bit because maybe my biggest takeaway was the cowboys. Miss usage of their first round picks and how glaring it was last night and zeke took the most expensive conditioning tests. I've ever seen a player taking yesterday's game most expensive conditioning. Tests ezekiel elliott. The cowboys twenty sixteen first round pick. He only touched the ball. Thirteen times in seventy seven plays thirt- teen nine eleven carries and two catch is. That's not enough. That's the two thousand sixteen first round. Pick twenty seventeen first round pick for the dallas cowboys taco charleston. He's not on the squad anymore. Twenty eight nine first round. Pick for the dallas cowboys late band. Arash they benders only played thirteen snaps. Y'all he was out there. Thirteen snaps played nine snaps on special teams. They do that. At y'all layton. Vander shows a phenomenal. Linebacker has gotten injured but he didn't play. Why because mike. Parsons the cowboys. Twenty twenty one first round pick was out there mike. Parsons will be phenomenal football player but michael. Parsons was out of positions a lot yesterday because he was trying to figure it out and playing off the ball linebacker trying to figure out pass coverage now nova linebacker position late and banned russia. The cowboys best pass coverage linebacker. But you can play him over. Michael parsons because michael was the first round. Pick this past year. So i was watching the game sale and i was like wait a second twenty sixteen first round. Pick for the dallas cowboys. He's a decoy ass. Zico elliott ninety million. Decoy twenty. Seventeen th i around the cowboys while he doesn't play on the team anymore. Two thousand eighteen pick for the first for the dallas cowboys. Twenty eight thousand first round pick. That's like band. Played nine special teams snaps only thirteen snaps on defense. Twenty twenty one first round. Pick for the dallas cowboys. Mike parsons he was out of position because they were forcing him into positions. He shouldn't have because he was a first round. Pick two thousand. Nineteen dallas cowboys didn't exist because they traded defer receiver my amari cooper twenty twenty round pick. That was cd-rom. He is a baller. A stud what. I took away. Was this draft. These draft picks over the last several years in the first round for the cowboys. They're not paying off in the game and it threw me a loop sale because you been in the position. I've seen it before mike. Parsons was playing because he had to talk. I've been there. That seemed it. He was playing because he had to. He wasn't playing because he deserved and he wasn't playing earned the right and he wasn't playing because he was the best linebacker in those positions and he was playing because he had to layton banned russia. Is the best cowboys linebacker. all around. Then mike parsons then. Jalen smith but how come. Mike parsons played fifty-one snaps. Too late and vander issues. thirteen snaps. Why because one was a first round pick who had to play. I'll say it like this heard this before. In regards to relationships. I was never let the most beautiful. What change your. Why why do that again. Damn never let the most beautiful. What changer why. Why do you put a player on a football field. You put a player on a football field because he gives you the best chance to win but mike. Parsons is an incredibly beautiful. What six four four three nine running long. Lean high energy. He will be a phenomenal football player. But the cowboys let their most beautiful. What change their why. They're why you play your players to win the game but they let the fact that parsons is such a beautiful life. Distract them from their y remind joan. Don't you epaulette your most beautiful. What and why. That's what i saw happened last night. Okay okay okay. now that's a beautiful widely. Yes stolen loved that when after after this block. I gotta get that one from you..
"zico elliott" Discussed on First Things First
"Two years in the. Nfl there have been eight names. Were quarterback three fifty five plus times deck has three of the eight and he's only played five. Full games the cowboys. No this is how they have to win. And which is why. It was so concerning this off season when it's like wait. Is he dealing with a shoulder problem. Because if he's limited they have no chance. And i thought he was brilliant yesterday. I really think all things considered giving the opponent the stakes. The it's the first game of the season. You're playing the defending champs and you're coming an injury i can make. The argument was the finest regular season game of his entire career. I think the only game he's ever played. That was better. was the packers game. His rookie season in the playoffs were once again. Hall of fame. Quarterback beat them by a field goal at the gun with that said the non-index stuff. Not only is it not a moral victory. It's greatly concerning mike mccarthy. Once again showed he won't learn from his mistakes. You're not gonna be. Tom brady with field. Goals certainly ought to be tom. Brady with field. Goals kicked inside the five. Not even mentioned the nonsense field goal kicked at the of the half domes gave brady three points but the other element is wild. What are you going to do against a team. And there's not many of them but a team with a great pass rush and secondary because the bucks great pass rush but not a great second or one of their guys got hurt. So what are you gonna do when you play a rams team potentially where it's like man we're going to have to run the football. And i think zeke might be cooked. I think zeke might just jusuf cooked and so that is to me. There is adapt was awesome. I mean look at look at that. And last year was zeke's worst sure does career and so i think there are positives and negatives all the stuff wilds massive positive but the coaching. And the fact that you might have an albatross contract on your hands at the running back position. That's an obvious negative okay. Zeke was an awesome. But we didn't expect him to be awesome. We know that the bucks had the best rush defense last year. We knew there were going to be tough to get past. Zeke had only one run for thirteen yards little skip. I thought that was nice. Do you. Nick do give zeki pass. Because he had the play broke down on this way. When he could've scored a touchdown tight. Misses the block and zeke. It's gobbled up. I don't think this zeke's fall now. You can tell me. not derrick. Henry makes white. But i think collectively we know that zeke is not derrick henry lanes that blamed the tight end. Okay so listen so greg. Tell me if i'm wrong here. Because yes that's miss blocked by the tight end and into good find by you but zeke his rookie year scores anyway z. Either corner or goes through that guy or is a corner or go on him like it's not that that wasn't in dhamma consumer gobbling them up like so. That's the yes. It was a mislock greg. But also zeke his rookie season scores. Despite the mislock. I agree one hundred percent. This is a great play by the defender. However as a running back you are taught if you bits one on one you gotta make a guide missed. You gotta make won miss. That is the rule of thumb. When you are the ball carrier you gotta make at least one guy missed. He didn't do that. Makes this guy miss or puts his shoulder down and gets physical. Maybe a different result is the outcome. But for me. I don't think zeke is washed. I don't think this is. This is a little premature because while you hit it this is the great the best rushing defense where all the football last season and he zico elliott again. Going into this game. You had to know you're not going to be them running the football. You got to see what you're gonna look like as offensive passing team. This is what we know. The dallas cowboys can be successful at. If they're going to win games this year it's going to be on the shoulder. Dak prescott not easy securely. He's going to be more involved in the passing game in more of a threat in the passing game. Then he will be in the running game. So i don't think even at all this year is going to be even close remotely close to being. Zeke elliott needs to carry the low. I'm with you greg and saying that this is premature. I'm not ready to say that. Zeke is done and he just can't get it done anymore last night. The game plan simply was not for him to get off. I. it's surprising. Even had eleven carries have was what four you know. They didn't really give him. The ball zeke. If you look back to when he was at his best he was the guy that was used to carrying the ball. Twenty some odd or close to twenty times a game and get going so even tony pollard. Who certainly not wash and last night did look better than zeke. In the brief moments that he got the football isn't quite what he was. I think paula can help to. He's not in every down back. But i think pilot is going to do some exciting things for them here and there as well so against teams. That don't defend the run as well nick. I think the cowboys. I'm gonna give him time and lease see if they can get the running game going. I'm not going to judge them and make a definitive decision for the rest of the year or career. Zeki elliott based off the first game of the season against the best defense in the league runways. I guess i'm not basing it just off the first game of the year. I'm basing off of all of last year where he set career lows in basically every category. And then i understand the bucks. Have an excellent run defense. I understand it was a pass heavy attack but if those numbers said eleven carries thirty three yards with a long of thirteen that means on his other ten carries he gained twenty yards. That's terrible that's terrible. And a guy who his first four years in the league average. Nearly a hundred yards rushing ninety yards rushing per game and eleven touchdowns per full season and then last year was around sixty yards per game and then this year starts like this at that position. Where we've seen guys that can go. Quick that to me is concerning and mike mccarthy kicking a field goal after he can stopped on that play. Instead of going. The touchdown is just mind boggling. Twenty twenty coaches still do this. So that's not great but dakshina was. I thought he played about as well as you can play. Given the fact he did have the one interception for stories to start your friday morning sponsored by ram trucks built to serve the defending champs hosting the cowboys opening night. Bucks and boy she got. Tom brady got dak. Prescott goal showed up last night. Tom brady making. This is three hundred regular season. Start dot prescott. We know this coming back from injury. Brady finished with four touchdowns deck threw for four hundred yards and three touchdowns himself big night for both but brady gets the week. One win also gets an interesting message from dacca after the game. Take a listen. I told everybody would see him again. and that's just the confidence that are having this group And expectations are half is This is a playoff team. That's gonna make a big push this year and we've got to continue to get better and we'll make a step from tonight We'll get we'll find a way to get better tomorrow. And that's the process we're going to stick to it and We've got a. We've got a good team and goodman and yeah i'm excited about. This season..

How are you? I'm good man. You're doing good, dude. Good. All right. So the NFL season starts tomorrow with Dallas at Tampa Bay. Why don't we start right there When you look at Dak and the rest of the Cowboys? What kind of thoughts do you have? Like? How good a cowboys team is this version in your mind? Man. If, um, I think it's A lot depends on you know how healthy back is, you know, um, watching hard knocks you can tell, you know, um, starting off in the pits count, but not it's easy for both. So We'll see how that goes. Zack Martin being out, you know the offensive line getting back together, you know, you know, that has a lot of weapons. I'm outside City lamb. Um, you know, Jay Z cooks good. Um, Ari Cooper, so that offense can really get back to, um What they were in the past. And I think the big question mark is just how that defense is gonna come out after a tough season last year. Someone asking about the defense in a minute. You mentioned Zack Martin. If he can't go, how big of a losses now for Dallas and in particular? How big of a loss is that for Zico Elliott? Um, I think it's a It's a loss. You know, Um, I think along that line, though, you have a lot of pro bowlers a lot of guys with a lot of experience, so I'm obviously no filling in the shoe for Zach Maher's will be some big shoes to fill. But Whoever it is, I think the guys, um that's playing alongside them can can can. Hopefully, um Help them out. And with Zeke Man, I think he's going to think he has something to prove. Um, you know, obviously last year not really. I'm looking like Zika bowls, So I think you know, as you can see, he shredded some pounds. I think he has a lot to pool so I know he will be running hard down here to come tomorrow night, you know, and by the way, he owned that, he said as much. He knows that I did not have that good of a year. I feel like I let the team down. He came in trimmer. Lehner seems more explosive. You mentioned the defense right, so there's concern about the offense of questions. But how big of a concern is that defense? Man after last. Yes, it's a huge concern. I would say. You know, a lot of a lot of gaps that needed to be filled. But, you know, simplifying the defense. I think that's one thing the defense coordinator came into dead. I think it was a lot of talk. Last year. Just looking at him on field just looked like everybody was confused. So being able to simplify, um, the defense, I think it will help. The defense is letting the guys while they're fly around. Not Now, I think So much, So, you know, they got them a young start in the middle. You know, so obviously being able to let him one sideline to sideline and and do what we do best. Um, you got digs up the corner. You've got some some some help in the second day, so I'm excited to see On what they what they'll do with Deputy Be a good transform week one going against Brady and the Bucks. Antoine Buffet joining us once again, All right. So when you look around the NFC East, you got Washington who won that division with the 79 record last season. Dallas as bad as they were with six and 10 like when you look around the division, who is the team to be there this year? Man. It's funny myself and there's we had this talk. Um and I kind of sort of. I think two teams really can Make it Make it to the playoffs out of this division. He thought I was crazy, But, um, one. I think Dallas just depending on how good that defense plays. Um and obviously, I think the Washington football team I think that defense is going to be a top five. Defense this year. I think that front seven is probably one of the best in the league. Um you know you got you got Fitzpatrick. You know, just depending on which fits back, you're going to get weekend and week out. But you know they have weapons on that side of the ball as well. Logan Thomas. Um, you got some young some good young receivers on outside, So I think that Washington football team could be really good. Um, surprising. Surprisingly good this year, I think between the Dallas Cowboys in Washington football team. Those are my my two picks like you and Darius have some really good conversations. I want to get into the one yet recently about quarterbacks. And the best quarterback situation around the NFL. But before I do that before we leave the NFC East. How much pressure do you think is on Daniel Jones the shop and prove that he is a franchise quarterback for the Giants this season? Which pressure on DJ Man DJ is my God. Um, but, you know, that's just what this business is about. Especially playing that position. Um, I think this year he has to have a good year. I think, um The organization, the coaches. They put a lot of talent around him. You know, you have, um, say Kwang coming back from injury. Um, you have Have an Ingram at parties and you have a lot of which a lot of receiving a lot of receiving talent out there as well. So This year is the year for him, Um, to show up and show. Well, obviously, that have to have to help him out a lot. Um, and one thing for him that he's been struggling with is just protecting the ball. So if he can do that, um, these they may have a lot of talent. I know he can get the job done. Alright, Antoine, But hey, joining us, So I mentioned Darius. I thought this was great. So Darius was saying that the 40 Niners have the best quarterback situation in the division. Because of Jimmy G. Trey Lance and Kyle Shanahan. As you said. In the past, Darius has quote a lot of hot takes a lot of unnecessary takes and a lot of foolish takes. So and well, what do you make of this particular take Another foolish another hot take, You know, uh In a sense, a few ways coming from being that,.

"Don't let age beat You re find your prime with them Drive Kansas State over Stanford was one of those where I go, Wait. I think they got that score upside down. Kansas State roughed up Stanford. There's always a few that opening weekend where you go, huh? And that was one of those things that make you go. Hmm? Zack Martin test positive for Covid 19. He won't play in the season opener for the Cowboys against the Buccaneers. He is as Zico Elliott said, their best offensive player. So you got a third year player Connor McGovern, who will fill in for Zack Martin, and, uh, He won't play. I don't know if there are any other players with the Cowboys. Who? Uh, McLovin. Yeah. Brandon Knight, a backup guard, Okay. He was also added to the COVID list. So you've got to know about this because it's going to affect your team. Or maybe the team that is playing your team. Unvaccinated players who test positive for covid or out and away from the team for 10 days. No wiggle room. Unvaccinated who test positive out have to stay away from the team for 10 days, no exception. Unvaccinated players who are deemed close contacts with Covid positive people are out in away from the team for five days. No exceptions. All vaccinated players will be tested every seven days and once more per week if they choose weekly testing for the vaccinated will occur either Monday Tuesday Wednesday and will include all coaches and team officials. Who have close contact with players vaccinated players who test positive can rejoin the team if a symptomatic by testing negative twice in tests separated by 24 hours. So if you're vaccinated, you test positive and then you come back the next day, not feeling any symptoms. You get tested each day, the first time That you have two consecutive negative test. Then you're allowed to be a full participant in team activities. The players have to get the approval of both Chief medical Officer Alan Sills and the teams infection control officer Vaccinated players who are deemed close contact with covid positive people are not pulled out of team activities. They're subject to daily testing and can stay as full participants in team activities in games. Get used to it at least first couple of weeks. Uh, you've got some marquee players, Carson Wentz says, you know, keeps me up at night. Not sure what to do. He has not been vaccinated Yama Club. So we were just Florea was tweeting out that Zack Martin could possibly have two negative tests between now and game time. So, according to the team, there's a slight chance he plays, but it looks Very unlikely. Okay? Yeah, which means he's probably vaccinated sample. I wonder if coaches will be treated any differently. Let's say Remember when Nick Saban had last year people or one and could be coaching, oppress boxer could be in a different spot. I wonder if it was a a tight situation. This was week 16 or playoff. And blank coach gets it. And he's vaccinated or or whatever. You mean. Could they pop them in a press box and have non contact? Well, Lane? Kiffin didn't get to coach last night. I was little surprised. I thought maybe they would, uh, Allow him to be on the property or something. John in Washington best and worst of the weekend, John, what do you have? The worst was the Huskies was into Montana and the best is you beating? I was you All right. Well, thank you, John. Yeah, that was another one. Where you go. Washington lost to Wyoming. John Montana. John really sounded down. And it looks like that worst of the weekend really affected only ranked again. Yeah. He also stole my best of the week in the Grizz. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And Montana over. That was one of those where you go. Wow, Montana, Okay. Kansas State over Stanford. Alright. Kind of messed up my best of the week because I was deliberately going to steal that for Paul, just so I could get the reaction to my Grizzlies winning and okay, now, the whole bit, Smith. Yes. McLovin already was going to South Dakota State to get policies. Be option Two. You guys are assassins. Yeah, Well, we know you're go choose one double layups. That's early. Yeah. Yes. Todd wasn't there some quarterback that through for like 10 touchdowns? I was. I thought Paulie was going to for sure. Use that. And I was ready to steal that one. That's a quarterback who transferred from Michigan who is playing for Presbyterian. Come on, man. That is so poorly. A 10 touchdown. Double a guy for Presbyterian. No, Paula, You got two more hours. You can't leave. Plus currently right now on his fourth best option. I think if you at home think this is a joke I have on this piece of paper right here. Oh, yeah. Presbyterian, Michigan Transfer 10 touchdowns. Raider Joe in California High writer Joe Hey, Good morning, guys. Thanks So much for taking my call. The best of the weekend is going to definitely be KJ. Right? Coming to my Raiders. Thank goodness for the outside linebacker position. And worse with us waving to enter Muse boy. Hopefully he clears waivers in and we get him back. Yeah. Alright, Raider, Joe. Good luck. Yeah, that's a third round pick. You know Jon Gruden wasn't wasn't good at drafting when he was in Tampa And as of right now, uh, God save very suspect and how they're drafting with the Raiders Yama Club. That's our friend Mike Mayock, though. Yeah, I know. Well, do I just put it all on Mike Mayock and not on Jon Gruden get it feels like they're shared power there in, uh in Las Vegas. Yes. Doesn't feel like there's a lot of positive buzz about the Raiders right now. When she picks the Chargers moving up You know their trajectory. I think Denver is going to be sneaky. Good. Um, they might not be exciting, but they could be sneaky Good. And then you got the Chiefs and the Raiders. They could be fourth in that division again. Yeah, I'm a club Arab Pull. The Raiders are no man's land You were. There are a good team. That's a contender that we talk about, or you're a bad team added the quarterback, and it changes the narrative. They don't have that with the Raiders. Yeah. They have skill position players, though. I just I don't.

"Yeah, those L J N rustling figure is Yeah. If you still had him. So a lot of those go for a nice pretty penny nowadays. Long gone, Anthony Piano. They're long gone. All right, um Let's let's talk about the Cowboys for a second, because I mean, let's face it right. The Cowboys were playing in a week division. So if you want another bold prediction, the NFC East is going to be average at best again this year. I think the Washington football team is a decent team. I just don't trust Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor. Hi, Nicky. It's good that you have both of them. Because you can have Fitzpatrick playing and like when he's fits magic, he's good, but when he falls off, you need to be able to yank him and get somebody that can be productive in the game, But then you can put them back in. He's not a guy the Yank him. He screwed and he's done. You can put them back in whenever after that. It's a good combination from the football team, but I just don't trust that offense enough. So you look at the Eagles and I think the Eagles are going to surprise some people this year based on what they did last year, but the Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott, I believe, and he's going to start to seize him like my bold prediction for Dak Prescott is that he throws her 5400 yards, but the Cowboys win nine games and missed the playoffs. Jack Prescott is thrown for 5000 yards before but I'm telling you to pay attention to the details of where a lot of these yards come from with Dak Prescott. They come up come in garbage time They come when the game is over last year before he got hurt. He was thrown for a ton of yards. The team was bad. The defense was dead. The offense wasn't scoring points early, so yeah, when they're coming from behind, and the defense is giving you everything underneath. Okay? Yeah, he He's been very good at getting yards meaningless charge, and this is not taken away from Dak Prescott. I think he's a very good quarterback, but I don't believe the Cowboys are a playoff team this year. But then there's the question of Dak Prescott in his health. Hasn't played the pre season is coming off of a catastrophic injury. By the way, which which didn't which didn't hurt. His price tag is all as a free agent. The Cowboys paid and paid big and then he had the shoulder problem to where he was just throwing a little bit. Dak Prescott spoke to the media talking about if he's ready to play to start the season. I'm ready. I'm definitely right. I mean, I'm excited. I put a lot of work to get to this point. Um Whether it's it was it was months ago, just rehabbing the ankle to the last few months, keeping the feet working while let my arm dress, but there's so much work that I've put into this. I'm just excited to go out there and, uh Be a part of being part of the full game. Just being out there my brothers and getting to do something I love. So Ezekiel Elliott is also a, uh, is also a question, mark. And now I mean, Heard a lot last year of the team was more productive and the position was more productive. When Tony Pollard was the running back. Zeke had missed he Hold on. I'm not gonna even say put on weight but like was heavier than he was in previous years. Um, and he wasn't elusive. He wasn't making guys miss and that's something that was a big part of his game before, certainly great out of the backfield as a receiver. But Tony Pollard look like the better back certainly wasn't playing as much. But you get what I'm saying, right? So Eliot came into camp and he is he's noticeably probably £15 later. And you can see it. You can really see it. So I would say the most important things that this Dallas offense that that President's gonna throw for a lot of yards. He is, they're going to throw the ball a lot. They have offensive weapons. They have wide receivers. They're going to throw the ball a lot. Can Ezekiel Elliott be a difference Making running back? He was a top five pick. They paid them in the second contract, like he was a top five pick. Right, And I'm sure that they're looking at that contract and being like, man, we have not gotten the money or the bang for the buck that we should have or that we were hoping to get. But it doesn't take away from the fact that Ezekiel Elliott is still a special player, or at least he was right in the NFL. Especially at the running back position, man. When it goes, it goes quick, and I think it's secular. Elliott saw that and said, Hey, listen, man, I gotta lose some weight. I gotta get I gotta get smaller. I gotta get quicker. Going to bring some of that back to my game, and he's got to be able to stay healthy. Obviously, that goes for everybody. But I mean, like Zico Elliott to me if he can get back to being the 1200 yard back, 65 70 catches out of the backfield, 500 yards, double digit touchdowns between being a receiver and running back. That's that's what makes them a much different and better team. Dak Prescott. Throwing for 5000 yards doesn't mean crap. It doesn't It means they throw the ball a lot and again. This isn't I'm not trying to say anything bad about that tax. I do like them. But teams are gonna throw for a lot of yards when you throw a lot, And if you're behind so again, the NFC East. I look at all the teams and I say not very good. Top to bottom. But between 12 and three I see all three of them and then the New York Giants are the worst team in the league for me. Worth him in the division for me will continue. Our bold NFL predictions also covered.

"Zeke was grinding grinding. Grinding grinding got paid got lazy that happens. that's facts not just football in life. You get paid. Oftentimes get lazy. You saw what happened with zeke. Last year fumbling the rock. I was watching those trying to. He was trying and he was asked. He admitted it so now. He's like what happened last year. I saw what happened to our quarterback to our team. I am rededicated gangway. He's going to be demarco. Murray he's gonna dig on a iran. They're gonna run zeke into the ground and they go either access to take a pay or they gonna cut it but let's get back to. Let's just quickly get back to the conversation though because as you guys talked about the compensation of the injury right and that's the thing to worry about with jack. Which is what the cowboys are worrying about. Listen to what robert griffin the third said yesterday On on get up when he was talking about the injury with deck. Now it's the shoulder now but he said he's not really concerned about the shoulder as he is the ankle shoulder injury back injury the dax dealing with more of an overuse injury so you can rest it up like they're doing to keep them out of position against writer all the regular season but what concerns me more is leg from from last year just making sure that he's healthy enough to go out there and play that he wants to play the game but once you make that transition in your back-to-back on the middle it actually flips on its head and on ten percents physical so i don't want to throw his body like he's dealing with right now. I want them to be able to eat him back into the. Did you guys agree with that. Point at the shoulder is not concerned. it's is. He is confident with that ankle when he gets into live action. Listen i totally reconstruction my big toe. So i have tendonitis in my opposite lake right. So he's all this is just the beginning. If he's not healthy now way we get to eight this he's gonna fall apart right he's gonna have to figure out how to compensate and it's going to hurt other things that's why they have to lead on zico elliott because that prescott is not going to be able to carry to the finish line this year it takes more than a year to heal up. Because he's gotta adjust to the readjustment. That's why you sit them. All preseason i don't care about them sitting precedes. What i hate is the fact that that defense is was getting ready for the tampa. bay buccaneers. That defense can't find his way out of a wet paper bag and now he's going to go against a real defense so him looking at the speed of that defense prepared for nothing he goes. See we love that same. San was concise sandwich. Y'all got to be quick. If you say ought been longer said oh my points. Tampa bay anyways. We all know that. And so like we're not stop worrying about tampa bay kion. Jay wills representatives. Wonder we're coming to you. Live from seaport. District appears seventeen. Brought to you by chase. Oh bore quarterback talk if you have to. Does that mean you don't have one and then we'll discuss that after. I tell you about dr pepper college football fans after an off season. It felt a little more off than usual fans and dr pepper. Invite you to celebrate because college. Football is back and so are the fans yes. It's the most wonderful time of year again. The season of saturday's when rivalries run deep and nacho cheese dip runs even deeper so crack open an ice cold dr pepper warm up your cornhole tossing arm and return to glory with an all new season fans. Ville by dr pepper. The one fans deserve. What did you make the decision to choose. Teddy bridgewater overdue lock the denver broncos. Actually did what is a defensive players drink now. With teddy has the quarterback they will have to be great in situational. Football more from sanjay zubin. Next what did you make of the decision to choose. Teddy bridgewater overthrew. Am every position in a kick. And that's what teddy bridgewater is going to do. You're not gonna outscore ton of people blow them out. There's going to be a lot of tight. Football games yes onto another quarterback competition that has now been resolved in this one in denver. Where for most of the offseason at least before training camp started there was this hope. Maybe a hope that the starting quarterback for the broncos would be aaron rodgers. That never happened. They didn't get a quarterback in the draft so they traded for one and teddy bridgewater bring him in and he andrew lock when head to head and teddy bridgewater emerged once again as he has throughout his entire career he always is the guy that seems to find a way to win so we go to denver right now for that discussion and we have marks. Lara's joining us right now on the goodyear hotline brought to you by goodyear. Helping you discover the road ahead. Goodyear more driven market morning. So why teddy bridgewater. I think i know why. But why do you believe he's the guy. They chose better quarterback He gives them an opportunity to do exactly what they wanna do. Vic fangio is been a deep groove throughout the course of his career They have compiled some pretty good defensive players. Von miller looks great. Bradley chubb is back from injury. Their secondary On paper and again. I always say this on paper spent a lot less time on the operating table. The games were played on paper. So you know. Take it for what it's worth but on paper that's secondary looks very i mean they look very compelling they're very good They drafted a patrick. The second in In the first round he is a legitimate player and he is playing in camp everywhere from outside corner to nickel corner to dime corner. The guy has been amazing throughout training camp and looking at it like who gives us the best chance to this offense to keep us moving on third downs to keep us in games Being consistent and that by far has been teddy bridgewater in these in these matchups in these practices. And i've been almost every practice. You watch just him through his progressions how he gets from one side to the next side. How quickly he does that. His presence in the pocket getting rid of the football understanding where all five eligible are he is. He is literally you know head and shoulders above a young quarterback andrew. Lock in those things. Those efficiency Places and that's that's where he wins. This competition hands down. Mark this macho. Thanks so much for coming on. You said you've been at every single practice. I think we all know how good a vic fangio in that defense is and also the players My question is like teddy bridgewater. Give the broncos a chance to make the playoffs right look. I obviously on who. Kansas city is and i think a lot of people are starting to understand who the. La chargers are. What do you think that he does when it comes to that team in that division and making the playoffs. Well i i really think i really think it comes down to staying on schedule like if you want a guy you know you wanna gotta make. Great splash plays then then drew lock. Is your guy but the problem was splash plays. There's good splash plays and they're bad slash slash plays right and the the the possessions possession in football is you know it's precious and if you're giving up a possession or to a game you're going to lose in in when you're constructed the way. The broncos are constructed and so the hope is hey listen we have to be. We have to discover what our identity is when it comes to running the ball. We have to have that in place we have to be able to not only run the plaques and stuff but more importantly we have to run and be able to run the run action stuff right this stuff that comes off the boot keep game and all that stuff So that we can keep these chains moving and the bottom line is we just can't turn the ball.

And i understand danny jones. His young they got a nice young wide receiver in kenny golladay and sterling shepherd. He's nice but it's gonna be saquon barclays year to show people that you know what it's my time to win the bounceback player of the year and he might. I would certainly put some money down on saquon barley. Not only when he bounced back player of the year but maybe mvp because has some set of skills that not many people have in the league so watch out for saquon barkley in my mind. He might be the best running back in the league with everything going down now. I know it's a league of when you done for me langley. now i know it's an injury riddled league and they're thinking last year. I was sick one barclays. He's washed up right now. He's not just to give them a chance. Because this guy just look previous numbers to look at his previous numbers and see what he can do. Yeah he only played two games in twenty twenty but look at two thousand eighteen look at two thousand eighteen. He played what sixteen games he started. Sixteen games he rushed over a thousand three hundred yards levin touchdowns hit long of seventy yards. He had a total yards of scrimmage. He's totally scrimmage. He broke the two thousand club now. He had what in his career. He's not a big tumbler. That's a key thing to that separates him from zico elliott. That separates him from alvin kamara. He doesn't fumble and that's key for running back. You're gonna have to be able to hold that ball tight and 'cause you're gonna have db's linebackers and defensive end and defensive tackles coming out to try to punch out that ball looking his career numbers for fumbles. He's only got one so he doesn't put the ball on the ground. He doesn't put the ball on the carpet. Which is so key and you can say well. He's injury prone well if you look. At the two seasons he played he played. Thirteen games started thirteen games. He played sixteen games. Started sixteen games he only had. It made her freak injury 'cause last year now if i take last year out he is still considered one of the better running bags if not the best running back in the league right now. Don't be surprised. Don't be surprised if you see saquon. Barkley up there with the top running backs next year when it comes to total yards. 'cause look at the total yards per scrimmage broke over two thousand and two thousand nineteen. He almost broke over fifteen hundred now. He only played thirteen games. If you add a probably nectar three games he's over two thousand again. That's how good this guy is. People are sleeping on this guy basically because of an injury simplest. It's a what have you done for me lately league. And they look at his injury say oh he's washed up no he's not washed up. He's not he's going to be one of the better running backs in the league this year and he's going to possibly might win the russian title if he stays healthy. Here's a good chance to break. Henry's rushing title and he might rush over two thousand yards. That's how good this can be at. How good this copy. What that's all the time i got for today. Thank you for joining me today.

"Football focuses draft board are running backs number one running back christian. Mccaffrey number two delvin. Cook number three king. Henry derrick henry tennessee titans number four alvin kamara. Zeke's at five. Nick chubb who just signed a major deal extension with the cleveland browns. And that's a great great pairing number seven saquon barkley and rounding out the top eight. It's very underrated player. Jonathan taylor had indianapolis but you see a very distinct similarity between all those three or excuse me all those eight players. All those eight players are work horse backs now. Barring any injury. Knock on wood. Barring any injuries i would take those players and i would put them as my workhorse back if you could any one of those guys and they can be a solid guy for you. If they're healthy they will lead you to the playoffs. And they will lead you to the land of promise and they will lead you to that fancy franchise championship now. I wouldn't be mad if a got any of those guys in the first round. 'cause all those guys are worked backs off. Those guys are three down backs who will get you the points that you need. And there's some also some quality guys in the end of the first round and maybe the second round that you can still get now. We talk about strategy. I like to do. I like to go running back running back wide receiver tight end wide receiver quarterback. I like to leave the quarterbacks in the later rounds but there's different strategies in different maneuvers. You can do during your draft to kind of complement each other. 'cause when i look at players sago go running back. I say you pick don't know pick dirt and you go king henry at the top of your draft. He's a great choice. He's a bell. How back who can get the most of the majority of the work. You're going to get him rushing at least twenty to twenty five times per game he's gonna get his touches now. Would you want to compliment him with another workhorse back or do you want to compliment him with a workhorse type of tight end or workhorse type of wide receiver abell cow. 'cause you're gonna have a lot of situations fancy where you can mix and match and if you're new to fantasy football don't be afraid to mix and match and don't be afraid to pick two positions back to back like for example. I'm not afraid to pick a running back back to back one to running back because not only. Is it a running back driven league but running backs delivered the most amount of points by rushing the ball on the ground and they can also have the effectiveness of. Can you got out of the backfield who can catch to especially if you're in pr. If you're points per reception a running back leg alvin kamara running. Back like saquon barkley. Jonathan taylor dalvin cooked christian. Mccaffrey those guys are so critical. So important to not only standard but p pr league's just because they have that other ability which most running backs don't they have the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. And i want a guy. Let's great hands. Who can catch them on the backfield because rubber p p. r. points per reception until about getting points. It's all about going to most points in facie football. Not if my team loses not a team wins real life. I cared of my guys who i drafted produced the most. And why would i take away an element of the game. Why would i pass on somebody who can not only run the ball effectively but who can also catch the ball instead of a guy who just runs between the tackles and has stone heads. You gotta think about this. You have to think about this stuff. I want a guy you see. All these guys at the top of the draft. You see the christian. Mccaffrey is of the world. The alvin kamara of the words. The zico elliott's the nick chugged jonathan taylor of the world. These guys are workhorse backs because they cannot only run between the tackles effectively but they can also catch the ball out of the backfield in an a. p. p. r. league that is so critical so critical to have a guy who can be very versatile and do a lot of different things. It'd be like a swiss army knife because you don't want at for example you don't want some guy who's a to down back and then a third down somebody comes in my gotta know a stopper like giovanni bernard for example. He's a guy that always haunts me. Because i remember. I had Who is that guy in cincinnati. But i remember how to cincinnati running back one time and he was he too back. I'm forgetting the name. I'm blanking on the name. But then third-down came and giovanni bernard came in my work. Horseback came back to this island in what what's going on. I need my back. And don't you don't want to lose points to guys like mike tolbert or you don't wanna lose points to guys like giovanni bernard and you don't want your workhorse back to lose points to a third down back you're just gonna come in so they can have that other element you wanna draft a guy who not only can catch the ball out of the backfield button. Run between the tackles draft. That guy don't dropped a guy who is just a to down back and stay away. Stay away from platoon situations. Stay away from any team that has multiple running bags. Because you don't know any given day who's gonna be the starter and who's going to get the majority of the reps and stay away from those backs who are goal lied specialists now. It's hard to find those situations but there are some in this league where there are multiple running backs in multiple teams that aren't platoon systems. And it just not a great way for you to not only game points dominate. Your league like you want to but to stay away from platoon systems. Because it's going to drive you crazy because one week you'll be like yeah. My guys legit. My guys that were courts back and then the next week year leaking at my guy who scored what two three to four point when he scored seventeen points last time. The platoon system never works in fantasy football. You want that workhorse. Back guy and just stay away when it comes to running backs stay away from the platoon systems till there's so many combos and mixes and matches that you can get into. You can go with i. Five picks running back running back wide receiver tight end wide receiver quarterback now. That's usually when i like to do because you can find a lot of debt. Act the quarterback position in the later rounds. I'm looking you can find in round ten. A guy who i think. That could be a stand out quarterback who might lead his team to at least a good playoff. Berth in thing goes well. I'm looking guy like joe borough. He's a qb cincinnati bengals. We all know him the lsu star his average pick his adp for those people who don't know round pick number one hundred two point seven that is his average pick. So you're telling me you can get a good quarterback. He's starting quarterback in this league has a lot of potential who has a great system around him and who has to dynamic receivers in his old colleague. Buddy jomar chase and t higgins especially with joe mixim that might be a trio to watch when it comes fantasy football near telling me you can get him in the tenth round. Wow that just is. It's crazy to see how deep this fantasy football draft for this year is because you can get a lot of good talent in the late around the draft. You're telling me you can get ryan tannehill at pick. Ninety seven point seven so when it comes to drafting quarterbacks especially in the first round. if you're not drafting patrick mahomes. If you're not drafting aaron rodgers. if you're not drafting lamar jackson. If you're not jacking guys who put up video game numbers within your first couple of picks. I would stay away from drafting quarterback until maybe the sixth fifth maybe seventh round. Five through seven is a good window. You can get a quarterback in. Who's not only a quarterback who's starting in this league but is a quarterback who might put up huge fantasy numbers for you can get matthew stafford. Matthew stafford the starting quarterback of the los angeles rams at pick eighty three point two. That's crazy he's gonna put up some crazy numbers in that sean. Mcvay offense but when it comes to his productivity levels is going to be through the roof compared to his detroit days. I guarantee you. He's not going to be throwing as many picks as he once was is going to be leading that offense for the rams. But i'm just saying when it comes to the quarterback position ain't fancy football and when it comes to the depth at that position especially in the draft weight when it comes to drafting a quarterback with your first five picks if you're not getting superstars and if not getting. Mvp type caliber. Quarterbacks like aaron rodgers. Like patrick mahomes like josh allen and like lamar jackson or even tom brady. Wait on the quarterbacks and work on your ryan backs and work on your position players..

You're giving the guy lamar jackson and you're giving up. Di came back half and lamar jackson especially in their. I are jones. He's right on the borderline of one.

"The health that you need to do that come along with it outta here you on that. I like what you're saying. I like what you're saying. My question then would be joel. Embiid was second. I believe this year and the mvp race embiid has been talking and we've known about him beat for a long time now but what he does. What janas doesn't do which luca doesn't do with several other foreign players doesn't do is unbeaten jumps an obstacle here. I came allies. You when we know because he played age and be. If i'm not mistaken. He played at kansas so we began to familiarize ourselves with embiid at a collegiate level. Then he comes in from a collegiate level which were familiar with and at a pro level he gets hurt. He's not hurt he gets hurt. He's not hurt and now we starting to ball but there's a level of familiarity with embiid that we don't have with players that don't play in the collegiate system which i think breeds them to being more of the face to me. It's a matter of like where you're at with them because that's a good take but there's familiarity with them beat at least from a collegiate level. There was no familiarity with the honest. Because realistically speaking f- luca in my mind. If luca was american born we would have been tracking with luca collectively since he was fifteen or sixteen years old. I know you guys like slick rick another. Nba analysts. y'all wash. Deluca highlight tapes from europe when he was fourteen and fifteen. But if luke was on the aau circuit we all would have known of luca from fifteen and sixteen and seventeen. Luca would be the face right now. Period first team all nba two times in the playoffs back may buzzer-beaters galore dropped forty points and averaged forty points and he would be the base period. So why is it lucrative face. And as i look at it i'm like 'cause we haven't followed luca collectively for awhile now. Why haven't we follow him. Because we follow things that are local here in america last thing. I'll say you can tone of this and a test of this year. We in america follow in track and field she carry. Richardson is our face of the sport. Because we follow american thanks. She's not as ours face spring right. She's faces towards print shaquille richardson. I don't know who she has to win. One thousand eight hundred followers are pace of the sport. Now our yours mind going you looking at track and field is laid all we know about exactly the we have not me and marcellus collectively speaking the larger scale of people but not the best definitely not the best from an international level but we americans keep up with american things and i think that's a big problem that some of the foreign players will face as well man. Y'all gave me too much to eat right now. I'm glad you asked for more time. Let me start off by saying this. Respect to my takewondo teacher for my son master. Kim who is i'll know nine degree black bill. Whatever but there's something that we're dancing around call star quality and we have it or you don't and honest doesn't have it. Let's just be real about it now. He got game on game on game but he got star quality. Wanna make my point master kim. No one knows about him. Bruce lee hereby about lear by know about this capable. Whoop them up respect to the. Here's the point. It doesn't have to be verbal those people. You don't have to climb mountains verbally as you said acho. Let's see how you can't climb out steve. Nash is also a former two time. Mvp but was never the best player into game. And that's why steve. Nash never got his flowers face of the nba. Despite having that resume janas falls into that same category. Who jaanus you interrupt your own momentum. Same thing joel. Embiid joel embiid. I didn't even play and we were like damn what's up with this. Do and then. He starts shooting off on twitter. We like he got star quality about him then he tried to. That would work worked. Who knows what happened in but the point is star qualities already out there. Then the game comes and we're like okay. They had met. The elevators are both highly pits. Here's the problem. He gets injured off injured and his team doesn't fully event so we're like we're way nba because we know you got star quality. Oh this is what lavar ball became. Lavar ball this is simple. Because he knew that as there's a star quality to me there's a star quality to my boys that i just need to plug into their game. Let it be. We'll figure that part out and nest the reverse engineering of what yacht is is trying to do so janas wolster really beat face an nba. He just gotta keep going into that one bucket. Just keep doing your job keeping yourself and hopefully more people will buy into it. But we know in america in our society. That's going to be the slow bill that's going to be slow grind and good luck. If you make coming up deck is back in the cowboy. Say they're ready to make a statement. We'll tell you we're buying or selling that next on. Speak for yes Which is worth face. Got to be you but to america. They have a lot of eyes on them. All is be what they expected. Return dak prescott and appear so hard knocks cowboys. Executive stephen charles was sub. Dull said he has a lot of confidence in a team with deck leading. He added quote. Our whole group is ready to make a statement and take the next. Step right. Stephen dog to me when i was there. So tell you buying selling selami cowboys making this statement. This season man. First and foremost. I gotta tell them myself man. I'm so wrapped into this face at a league who's going to best conversations. I'll be wrapped into hard to change. Which i'm selling the cowboys. Make a statement and you still thinking about the conversation. Because you ain't prepare for miam-. Here's why i'm selling it out. The cowboys made no major additions. This offseason john. O'neill dan quinn. The defensive coordinator and the first six draft picks were defensive but they know splash editions. No no stefan digs like the bills splash addition. So what we're banking on the cowboys. Being healthy again it makes a lot of sense of the cowboys are healthy. They're much better team than they were last year. Great but if the cowboys are healthy then they're really the same roster they were in twenty one thousand nine hundred and for y'all cowboys fans. Y'all should know this. I should have to explain it to you for those loose. Nfl fans twenty nineteen dak. Was there amari. Cooper was there. Tyron smith was zelaya collins. was there jalen smith. Was there lane band rituals. Air albeit only played nine games. So that martin was there twenty. One thousand nine hundred. Zico elliott. was there. Michael gallup was there. The cowboys roster was the same. The difference was jason garrett and call it cd liam if you will a big time playmaker cd lint. But is mike mccarthy really shown us that he's that much better than jason garrett right now yes the reason i ask the reason i asked. He's at four consecutive losing seasons. But he got this he can put her yours. You can put a ring rival. Mike mccarthy made three bonehead decisions in the first four games. Last year for the cowboys cost the cowboys games. I would submit cleveland grounds. While you're running a fake atlanta falcons. Are you running fake punts in the first half mike. Mccarthy made a lotta bonehead decision so even if the cowboys combat fully healthy then i see them vary adjacent to the twenty. One thousand nine cowboys. The twenty thousand nine cowboys were an eight and eight football team. Football team did not make a statement. The twenty eight thousand cowboys were ten in six football team. Move that into this year. That's either ten and seven or eleven six not statement making. Can the cowboys win. The division marcellus. Yes sure of course they can. Eagles are very good. Washington has led by fitzpatrick. And i'm not sure about dante dimes yet daniel jones but just because you win a division doesn't mean you made a statement. We'll get theft. Is that what they call him. Daddy di times. I'm late to that party boy. Would i brought the most drank. That is height daddy times okay. I'll buying this this buying this. Because know i got a love and adoration for my cowboys is because they did make a splash. This off season dak. Prescott is back in the building. Pooling your beverly hills adjacent townhouses condo apartment sub-lease. I don't know what the hell you got but the point is if you have a pool you know you start playing games. Yes kids you know. This is not always about the qena balls making a splash. Sometimes if you learn how to dive splash but it's just as effective and the cowboys have no splash. But boy did. they make a splash. Dax in the building. You know what he does. The executive elliott without deck ezekiel elliott averages. Seventy eight yards a game with one hundred eight. There's your splash one about cd lab. He goes up thirty yards games. Well what about amari. Cooper twenty yards a game. What about michael gallup thirty yards. All of these are increases just because dachshund a building decades healthy. But also the fact that if you look at the cowboys and their defense much-maligned defence but like you said dan quinn's into building also the cowboys. Defense started to short things up that part of the season. I'm sure people phased out on them because they weren't a playoff team but from week. Eleven to the end of the season cowboy started to turn a corner. defense had the most takeaways span cowboys. Defense cowboys was lebanon scoring. Not bad and offense had the fifth tie fewest giveaways in that span. Why does that matter. That's what that's what they're basically like this season over. Let's see what we have here. So if you look at it and totality all of their star players play better because dachshund building and their own hard knocks team. That loves attention a team. That's used to attention. All this is gonna be good for the capital. So they'll make noise but they will make a statement. You make a lot of noise without making a statement. We saw a lot of that over the course of twenty twenty. A lot of people made a lot of noise and didn't really make any statement. No i don't. I don't think they can because remember so best. Case scenario case scenario the cowboys are going to revert back to the eighteen or nineteen cowboys. Roster that doesn't mean thing. A quarterback awake can change acquis in one thousand nine. Oh yeah was is not the same as he was in two thousand nine better. Yes in twenty nine eight phenomenal see. He was all pays for sixty five hundred yard before injury. Turn over so yeah exactly in. This defense is on pace to be thirty second and they also finish eleventh in the nfl. In terms of pass defense go from dirty. I'm thank correct. I think it's wishful thinking. I think yes the cowboys should win the division and they would be my favorite to win the division about nine or so games but nine. Eight isn't a statement to me to me. Statement is thirteen. Fourteen wins in sixteen games like thumb. Thirteen for you can't do this. Oh you believe. Do you believe in lieu head. All are good because this hard knocks stuff is not a voodoo curse. There've been successful teams. That have been on a hard knocks. You guys are going to watch one this year. The dallas cowboys coming up the books in the series. But we'll tell you tonight is actually a must win. Game from a walkie. That's next. i'll speak for yourself going up out when the nba title. If they win tonight at home in milwaukee now the bucks of enrolling with three straight wins in our nine in one at home this season and the playoffs janas said quote. We cannot worry about having plans a celebrating. None of that until it's done close quote spoken like true face of face of his at home but star quality the whole different animal man. It is what it is. I'm doing this because i have to. We note i'd much rather do is the came into question. Marcella sir sir. Yes night a must win game for the bugs no. It's not. I hate fake must wins. Why because they're not must wins. Like what must means. I remember growing up. We must be. But here's the thing must whiz if you don't what is the outcome deaf for them so it's not a must win for the game for the bucks now. Let's go into figurative speech of what must win is oh you don't win this one then. The next one will be so damn hard for you to win. So you better win this one. No if i were a milwaukee buck. If i was sitting there looking at not face. Nba and i would say our leader not the face an nba. Just beat them in phoenix and game five and they were favorite to win against us in game five. So what's the difference if we lose. But we're not going into the conversation if we lose but if we do this gang tunein it's not a must win because they still survive and thrive in game seven. I co-signed it's not a must win. But the attributes that keep us from being the face of the nba are why they will went because he is going to be so determined. And that's how you win. Games determination highschool salute desire. Not a must-win game. Burma reason you said. And i are other reasons but realistically speaking the bucks just went to phoenix and one in phoenix. Thank you so they already know. Even if we don't win tonight we can still go beach all charles house. And we've already beat a team as good as y'all the brooklyn nets in game seven on the road with the player who can score just as well kevin durant as you devon booker. So even if we don't win tonight we can still go get that one but the bucks don't play with their food so we elicited speaking. I don't think they don't sue games in this series. That wasn't play with their food. That was hurt. Nothing else. Chris paul in his back okay. I think that was chris. Paul rested and i think that was janas not fully healthy. But i don't see the bucks having that we don't have to win tonight mindset. I think the bucks had that mindset of yes we understand that we can go in game seven but in milwaukee. Let's go ahead and try to take care of it. Yeah not a must win game. More of a hell of wants to win game. You know. we've all been there as we don't want to get into the position where we're playing with our food submarine up the brooklyn nets example. Please they play in game. Seven to brooklyn net. They didn't play healthier gave one egg. The other one was just there. It was the other one was following the other leg on his. Who isn't the face of the league can hyper extend his me. Come back what would you rather go for former c. Back your lot lax. You're lying to yourself. When a traveler hyper extent i would rather pulled my hamstring so over a week or two weeks prior than hyper-extended my knee to the point where the whole thing is complete. And you've had both injuries. And you're saying that line to the people hyperextension. Why do you think he came back so fast. You can cognitively like okay. Let's don't go that hard. Don't go hyper extend to wall. So what are you out there. Hyperextension just inflammation. everything's stable. Everything else is about pain threshold disability. You're good hamstring.

"It will not necessarily sophomore guys but dobbins and jacobs and mixing you know hopefully bouncing back especially if they draft soul and get you know a upgrade on the offensive line and the andre swift and antonio gibson all those guys that have a chance to be really special does he. Does he compare that much more favorably than robinson as well you know. So it's It's just a matter of how much still counting on zeke and and you're right out and people are going to be concerned understandably so go. Elliot had three carries this year of twenty or more yards. Nick chubb had twelve yet. Twelve in one. Hundred and ninety attempts zeke had two hundred and forty four. I mean this is less about zeke. And more about nick chubb. His explosiveness is is remarkable. That is a shocking number. Two cats count. No no yeah. I get it i just say. I'm just saying nick nick. Chubb is amazing at football is basically what i'm so. Yeah and that's part of the allure. That's why people are gonna maybe reach a little bit. Maybe we're reaching a little bit. Put him in the back end of round one because he's such an awesome running back. He's fun to watch. We know he's going to get a lot of work and he's got a nice track record of good production in pr. That can make you feel okay. Taking him with that late first round pick. So what did i say. He had sixteen point six p. Pr points per game this year. Jutted juno with zeke had both this year and in his first five games with dak prescott you guys take steps to twenty. He was at twenty one point. Eight with dak and on the year fourteen point one so obviously he fell off a cliff in. it's not just ackley offensive line to he gave evidence. What's up jen. it's only two games with dalton. They threw the ball. That's the big part of it. That's definitely part of it. But i did think that he left enough for us to see in week. Sixteen seventeen to know that. He's not like a total shell of his former self and that there is a chance of him bouncing back. I don't think he's quite at the age where we can just rule out him ever being what he wants was but he needs that opportunity and now twenty pollard could be a big part of that mix next year and we'll see what the offensive line looks like for now. I'm comfortable taking him with a late first round pick zico elliott had almost no chance in week seventeen. His offensive line was completely overwhelmed and he actually did very well with the opportunities he was given. I mean you'd like one of those lost one yard. Turn it into a two yard gain. He did that a lot in week. Seventeen he he did look probably touches in that game too. Yeah i don't. I don't know i remember what the stats better. It was fourteen for forty two and a touchdown three catches for nineteen yards on. Fourteen looked better. Than the dalton. He had four targets in each of those game seven catches so if that's the floor in terms of what the reception totals could be because we saw at the ceiling was with back. I mean those first five games. He was in three of them. I'll throw out week five. When when when i heard against the giants but the first four games three of those. He had six cats as each of those games. Yeah all right so let me just recap the top twelve oaks here jamie. Who'd you have an eleventh between zekan chubb. Okay the differences for you guys. Dave has james robinson. Eleventh jaime does not have in the top twelve. Jamie has austin ekeler ninth. Dave does not have him in the top twelve. Let's start there..
