Thank you all so much to people tuning in on Sirius XM channel 158 and all of my friends listening on a smart speaker. I don't know. Could be Amazon, Alexa, Siri.
I don't know. There's so many ways to talk to these robots nowadays. I can't keep track.
But when you get that robot's attention, just ask it to play CBS Sports Radio. It's a Thursday night. I hope you had a tremendous Thursday. If you did not, I'm going to be here with you for the next four hours and damn it, we will make it tremendous. I'm going to have a tremendous time.
So if you want to be listening to someone who will have a tremendous time, then listen to me, damn it. If you follow me on social media, you'll already know what we will discuss. That's at JR Sport Brief everywhere. There's a couple of news items that have pretty much popped up.
Dallas Cowboys. No big shock. No big surprise.
It was a mention. Tyron Smith. You know, it was reported that it was a quad leg injury and it's actually a fracture in his knee. He's going to be gone for a few months.
Dallas Cowboys offensive line is crap. We'll talk about that in a few minutes, a few seconds. We mentioned this last night. The Los Angeles Lakers have traded for someone in the NBA who is a professional irritant. His name is Patrick Beverley. How will Patrick Beverley fit in on the Los Angeles Lakers? Oh yeah, especially with Russell Westbrook there. And that's if Russell Westbrook is there.
And Lebron James had some words about Russell Westbrook being there that he wanted to share today. Aaron Donald is anxiously awaiting the start of the regular season. In practice against the Cincinnati Bengals, he's swinging helmets. Aaron Donald is ready to destroy human beings. Wait a few weeks, Aaron Donald.
Chet Holmgren, we discussed this last night. It's official. Lisfranc injury. He's out for the year, out for the season.
Didn't play one regular season game, had an opportunity to play in the Seattle Pro-Am. He did it on behalf of Jamal Crawford and he's out for the season. He's out for the year. He's out for the season. On behalf of Jamal Crawford and he is done.
The number two overall pick, damn it, we will not see him in action. And so these are all some of the things that we will discuss here over the next four hours. I told you at JR Sport Brief is how you can reach me on social media. And also the phone lines here. If you want to be traditional, if you want to be connecting with us of America, 855-212-4CBS.
That's 855-212-4CBS. I'm being joined here by super producer and host Dave Shepherd. Dave, how was your Thursday? How are you doing right now? I'm doing well, JR. It's great to be with you.
It's amazing to see that Jerry Jones is already giving reason why the Cowboys should not be worrying despite a 25-year absence from NFC Championship games. But other than that, I'm doing well, JR. How are you, sir? I'm excellent, man. Good. Excellent.
Spell that E-X-C-E-double L-E-N-T. I'm excellent. Jerry Jones can't be excellent. You just mentioned Jerry Jones.
He cannot, cannot, absolutely cannot be excellent. Sure, the Dallas Cowboys are the most, just, they're the most valuable franchise, sports franchise on earth. The Dallas Cowboys just went over a valuation of $8 billion. What is Jerry Jones going to complain about? He ain't selling the team. He's not going to collect that $8 billion.
He's not cashing out. He's going to be around and stick around forever. But at this rate, I mean, is Jerry Jones going to see another championship Shep just alluded to it? He's going to be 80 years old in October.
And sure, 80, you don't know. Nobody knows. Jerry Jones could be here for another five years. He could be around for another 20. We have no idea. But the fact is, how many more years is he going to be running football operations for the Dallas Cowboys?
How many more years are we going to get a that? And so when you have news, which is not a, not a really a surprise, Tyrone Smith, I can't remember the last time I've seen this man have a healthy season in the NFL. When he plays, he's a pro bowler. When he plays, he's an all pro. When he plays, he's one of the best quarterback protectors in the game.
That's when he plays. Dak Prescott needs help. The Dallas Cowboys just drafted Tyler Smith. And sure, Tyrone Smith will come back, hopefully, by the time we get to December around Christmas.
But damn it, that's, that's, that's more than half the season gone. Tyler Smith, who they just drafted out of Tulsa, it's his job to become the starting left tackle. And this is what the Dallas Cowboys are known for, right? And let's go back to the 90s, the offensive line, right? Opening up holes for Emmitt Smith, right?
Yes, right. But right now, the offensive line is on the side of wrong. Dallas Cowboys, you got to think about the injuries that, that this team is pretty much suffering right now. You got a patchwork offensive line. Connor McGovern, oh, he's basically a journeyman.
Come on. They just cut Lyle Collins and he's had his own problems and issues, and now he can try to do that for the Cincinnati Bengals. You got guys like Terrence Steele, who are in. You know what I would like to know about an offensive line? Nothing.
Not a damn thing. I prefer my offensive line to be anonymous outside of, oh, that's the guy that, that's the guy that, that's the guy that, that's the guy that's offensive line to be anonymous outside of, oh, that's the guy that you never hear about him. You hear about offensive linemen when defenders are blowing past them. You hear about offensive linemen when they're allowing the quarterback to get sacked. The only other time you hear about offensive linemen is when one of them is going to the Pro Bowl or they're getting a new contract because they protect the quarterback. Does Dak Prescott have that type of protection here coming up in the year 2022?
I'd venture to say no. He will be an additional year removed from that terrible fractured ankle. Ezekiel Elliott obviously relying upon an offensive line to help create holes and allow him to be dynamic when he's healthy. CD Lamb being elevated to the number one receiver. And CD Lamb has been dealing with a foot injury.
Welcome to the big time as the number one. And then you got Michael Gallup. This man blew out his knee last year.
They're just telling him to pretty much come on back. Amari Cooper is now a member of the Cleveland Browns. It'll take half of a season or three quarters of a season before he receives a pass from Deshaun Watson. And I'm supposed to feel confident. I'm supposed to feel good about the Dallas Cowboys. I'm supposed to feel good that that the Dallas Cowboys can go into the NFC East. Look at the New York Giants. Look at the Eagles.
And look at the Washington commanders and think that they should be tops. They should. But I'm starting to feel with the injuries mounting already before the season start, I'm starting to think that this is the same old damn Cowboys. What am I supposed to feel about the Dallas Cowboys? They're America's team, right? Why are they America's team? Because Jerry Jones bought them in the late eighties and fired everybody and won some championships and couldn't stand the coach and wanted to take the credit.
And then they've been crap ever since. Almost a dozen straight playoff appearances with no conference game. They just lost to the 49ers earlier this year. Haven't gone to the Super Bowl. Haven't been there since 1996.
Haven't even been to a conference championship game. They've gone through the Bill Parcells. Excellent coach. They've gone through Wade Phillips. They stuck too damn long with Jason Garrett. I thought Jason Garrett might've had a, I don't know, maybe he had a photos of Jerry Jones.
He stuck around so long, Chan, Gailey, Dave Campo. I mean, what are these guys doing coaching the Cowboys? Jerry Jones has done an excellent, excellent job marketing the team. Jerry Jones has done an excellent job selling the team. I've been at their facility in Frisco.
I've been to the outside, which is basically a mall, basically a showcase of everything at their practice facility. The Dallas Cowboys are top notch. Man, you play for the Cowboys.
I don't think you want to go anywhere. You're a celebrity in town. You play at the biggest, most opulent stadium.
AT&T stadium is like a spaceship fell out of the sky. You play and practice and get things together in Frisco when you're not in California. Jerry Jones sends you to California to practice. Oxnard, you come back and you're in Frisco.
Beautiful. Who wouldn't want to be a Cowboy? But the team sucks. You're paying the quarterback $40 million. You have a running back, unfortunately, with Ezekiel Elliott. I still believe Ezekiel Elliott is an elite running back. He's just had to deal with injuries and he hasn't been out here complaining about him too.
The offensive line is in shambles. And let's be also real, the Dallas Cowboys are known to pick up just guys that you have to cross your fingers for. It's a beautiful thing to have Michael Parsons. He'll go to the Pro Bowl. He's going to tackle more than 100 guys. He's going to accumulate his share of sacks. He's going to be amazing. Am I supposed to feel that Demarcus Lawrence will play the whole year? Am I supposed to believe that Leighton Vander Esch will be around? I mean, this is Trayvon Diggs. Is he going to be in store for 10 INTs?
I don't know. You can have a star every now and then here and there out of position, but to solidify things, I'm not so sure. And so it's like, here we go again. Except for this year, I wouldn't say there's hype for the Dallas Cowboys. You know, every year people talk about the Cowboys and the Cowboys are going to win. Even their fans, Cowboys are going to win.
This is going to be the year. Cowboys are going to turn it around. I don't even hear that coming out of Dallas.
I don't hear that all across the country. I think we are so far removed now from 1996 that there's a generation of football fans who don't even associate the Dallas Cowboys with winning. They see the Dallas Cowboys for what they are.
Kyler Murray was asked about the Dallas Cowboys a couple of years ago. Kyler Murray is just like, yeah, I wasn't thinking about them in high school. I wasn't thinking about them growing up. I wasn't thinking about them being in high school. I wasn't thinking about them growing up.
Why? Because they were just, eh, they were bad. They're just like, whatever. And this is what the Dallas Cowboys have been for the past 20 years. And so if you are someone who's barely two decades old like Kyler Murray, what do you remember of the Dallas Cowboys? You don't remember 1996?
You don't remember 1996? Every year that you've seen of the Cowboys has been a whole big disappointment. You've seen them disappoint. You've seen them suck.
You've seen them have high expectations and ultimately lose. And I'll tell you this about the Dallas Cowboys right now. They're cooked.
What are they? Who's going to tell me? Who is really going to tell me? Who in their right mind, I will say, is going to tell me the Dallas Cowboys are going to compete for a title? Who's going to say that with a straight face?
Jerry Jones can't even say that with a straight face. Dallas Cowboys might win 10 games. They might go 10 and 7.
I don't know. Maybe they go 9. Well, not that bad. Let's give them 10 wins. Damn it, the Dallas Cowboys might even still win the NFC East. Maybe the Eagles beat them.
Let's see what Jalen Hurts can evolve to do. But all that America's team, rah rah rah, we don't even need to hear that no more. The Dallas Cowboys ain't competing for a championship spot. The Dallas Cowboys are not competing for an NFC title. They're not competing to go to the NFC title game. The Dallas Cowboys will just be competing to win the NFC East to go to the playoffs, and that's it.
We might as well wait for another elimination similar to what they got earlier this year against the 49ers where they lost what 23 to 17. The Cowboys will be OK, but OK ain't good enough. And for a long time, the Dallas Cowboys have either been a OK or be bad, but ultimately see they have choked C for choked.
I got that from Sesame Street. See is for choked and that is something that the Dallas Cowboys have specialized in since 1996. And despite the latest injury to their offensive line. Jerry Jones. He does not believe Tyrone Smith and his injury is doomsday for the franchise. Take a listen to this. Disappointed for Tyron, but no one recognizes how much our team depends on him and what he contributes to the team anymore than Tyron.
Recognize that he feels awful. I know that on the other hand where number one draft pick was drafted because we knew the future and we need to be looking for a left tackle of the future. Maybe not. Taryn Smith, but certainly somebody special. We think we've got that. I'm not for sure how we'll line him up immediately as we go into these opening part of this season, but we've got a good plan. We got some players that we think can step in and play.
Yeah man, I can step in and play. They would move my ass the hell up on out the way. I ain't got nothing to give. And I'm sure you can get someone who's more athletic, bigger, faster, taller, stronger than I, but I mean damn ain't gonna make no difference.
I'm sorry. The Dallas Cowboys are not rolling into this season with high expectations. And that's because there's a reality here. The Dallas Cowboys might have stars pockmarked on the team, but as a team, the Dallas Cowboys are not closer to a championship. And Jerry Jones, who's moving closer, oh, in a couple of months to being 80 years old. Man, Dallas Cowboys ain't winning no title this year. And isn't that what they're competing for? Aren't the Dallas Cowboys America's team? Aren't the Dallas Cowboys supposed to be out there fighting for an NFC title and fighting for a championship? These damn Cowboys will be fighting for a playoff spot. It's going to come down between them and the Eagles. But once you get there, if you get to the playoffs, they ain't going to no damn Super Bowl. And I guess Jerry Jones will fire Mike McCarthy maybe and try to figure things out because next year he'll be 81 and I'm sure he wants another title. It's been a long time. It's been 1996. NFL fans and active NFL players, they don't remember the Dallas Cowboys being good. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio.
The phone lines are open right now. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. Another injury to the Cowboys. Tyrone Smith goes down again, this time to a fracture in his knee. You got to throw a rookie out there at left tackle. Let's hope Dak Prescott can go through the season healthy. Let's hope Ezekiel Elliott can go through the season healthy. But for the Dallas Cowboys, let's be real. What are you expecting from them? Me? Nothing. Compete for the NFC East with the Eagles.
And maybe even Washington. There ain't no pushovers. I don't think Carson Wentz is going to up himself.
But let's be real here. Dallas Cowboys ain't winning no championship this year. And that will be another failure on a team or for the team that is worth more than any team on the planet. Eight billion dollars.
What are your thoughts on these Dallas Cowboys? Eight five five two one two four CBS. That is eight five five two one two four CBS. I am JR. You're locked into the JR Sport Brief Show, CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. J.R. wants to hear from you.
Call him now at eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five Oh, we're going to get to, uh, I don't, I guess the Lakers, we got a couple of America's teams, right? If I got to think about professional sports here in the United States of America, do I call them America's teams or do I call them the teams with the front runners? Like come on now.
There's a lot of people running around. I don't care what corner or pocket of North America that you live in. You know, somebody, you know, somebody there are, well, they are a Cowboys fan. Let me, let me put it to you this way.
Let's let's think about this. They might be 40 to 45 years old, maybe let's give it a wider range. They are 35 to 45 years old. They are a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. They are a fan of the New York Yankees. Let's see, Cowboys. And then they're a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. Those are America's teams, right?
Or should I call them a, you know, teams with a lot of front running as fans. When it comes to the Dallas, we'll get to the Lakers, but right now we're talking about the Cowboys. If you're a Dallas Cowboys fan, you can't even seriously walk around and say, oh, this is going to be our year. You can't do that.
You can't. You're fighting for a playoff spot in the NFC East. You're not even one of the best teams in the NFC. The offensive line is in shambles. You have a running back, unfortunately, who's been hurt, who now has to run behind said offensive line. You have a quarterback paid $40 million. Many people thought that he was overpaid at the time coming off of a major ankle injury, one year removed.
God bless him. And then he, of course, tweaked it a little bit last year. Now he has to play behind that line. It's appropriate that the Dallas Cowboys have a star midfield. They got stars on the team. But do they have a full team good enough to compete for a title?
The answer is no. They're going to be competing for the NFC East, and that ain't good enough. Jerry Jones is getting ready to turn 80 years old. You better get this man another Big Mac. Well, not a Big Mac. If you remember hard knocks from last year, two years ago, I was like, well, damn it, how much, how many Egg McMuffins with extra salt can Jerry Jones eat?
This man was sitting on hard knocks, he's like, hey, I'll have a, what is that thing called? Hey, Shep, what's the breakfast sandwich from McDonald's? Egg McMuffin?
Yes. Good call. Or McGriddle?
McGriddle Egg McMuffin. You get it. You get it. You get food, but anyway. Like you said, when you play for Jerry Jones, you feel like you're playing in a toy store.
What does that mean? Well, the spaceship from the sky. I mean, when you play in there, it's like you're, you're like in a special atmosphere. There's never been anything like AT&T Stadium before. Shep, have you been in there? No, I'm agreeing with you.
I totally, wholeheartedly concur with what you're saying. They gave me a tour of that place when it opened. It's ridiculous.
I'm on a highway like 15, 20 miles away, and I'm saying to myself, what the hell is that in the background? They go, that's, that's where we're going. And we're going to AT&T Stadium. He just doesn't know how to hire a coach. Oh yeah, he can't.
Right. Well, he knows how to hire a coach. He knows how to hold on for one for too long. He knows how to make the coach feel uncomfortable.
Hey, I got Mike McCarthy as my head coach, but there's plenty of replacements if I wanted to hire one. What are you, what are you doing here? I can tell you what he's not doing. He's not hiring anyone good enough to help run the franchise.
You know what? It'd be nice. It'd be nice if the Dallas Cowboys won a championship while Jerry Jones was still kicking while he was still around.
But it feels like there's going to be another reset. Jerry Jones is the general manager. Jerry Jones is the owner. Typically, if you hire a general manager, you will give him a five to six year window to turn things around. How is there any type of turnaround when Jerry Jones is the end all be all?
He didn't see there's a problem. And so welcome to another year where the Dallas Cowboys don't win anything. They can try to win the NFC East.
That's about it. What are they going to do? Go to the playoffs again and lose one more time at 23 to 17 or whatever the case might be? 8 5 5 2 1 2 for CBS. That is 8 5 5 2 1 2 for CBS. Kyle is calling from New York. I wonder if he likes any of those bum ass New York teams.
Hey, Kyle, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Well, Jay, I'm actually a 49ers fan, but thanks for taking my call. But yeah, no, I don't think that the Cowboys are going anywhere until Jerry Jones is out of that building because I think that I think that he makes emotional decisions. I think he gives out bad contracts based on those emotions. And I mean, it's been killing the team for years. How long did he keep Jason Garrett around for? Four years, four years longer than he should have. Well, he was the head clapper in charge.
Yes. And that's what I'm saying. He's never going to get a quality coach in there because quality coaches don't want to be having to look over their shoulder at the owner slash GM. They want to make decisions. They want to be decisive. And the best coaches in the NFL are decisive.
And you've got somebody else sitting on your lap telling you you got to do something else. Why would anybody want to go there? I mean, there's all these rumors about Sean Payton going over to the Cowboys. Sean Payton's not going to the Cowboys.
Do you think he wants Jerry Jones sitting on his shoulder telling him what to do? No. Well, which shoulder? Because don't you put isn't there like a devil on one shoulder and is it like an angel on the other side?
Well, yeah. And the angel on the other side would be, I mean, I don't even know. Maybe there is no angel over there and that's why they haven't won a playoff game in twenty five years.
Oh, OK. Well, let's not call Jerry Jones the devil. That's not nice, Kyle. Kyle disappeared. I wonder what happened to him, got snatched up eight five five two one two four CBS. Trey is calling from Myrtle Beach. I know where that's at.
It's in South Carolina. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, man. I heard Callaway fan even before the Tyron Smith news broke, which just put a nail in the coffin.
I wasn't looking forward to this season at all. The number one reason. Yes. Jerry Jones is.
Is he? I'll say this. The Cowboys have drafted.
Great. We have drafted more pro bowlers. We've drafted Hall of Famers and markets where Jason Witten list goes on. We've drafted talent. We've even hired coaches and let them do their thing to a point.
And that's where it stops. We don't let the coaches get involved with the personnel. And that's the problem.
Jerry Jones can get the guys there. He can get the talent, but that's where it ends. He doesn't let the coach mold it into something useful.
And that's the problem. So that's where he's not a great GM. He's a great owner, great GM, but he's terrible at letting the coach put it all together. And even with all that being said, the number one reason why the Cowboys aren't going to win anything is number four, Dak Prescott. Any Cowboys fan who thinks that guy is an elite quarterback needs to be have their head examined. I don't think it's so much.
And thank you, Trey. I don't think it's so much about Dak Prescott being elite. Who's running around calling Dak in elite quarterback. He's good.
He can be very good, but elite, nah, he ain't there. Well, he's not the biggest issue. The biggest issue is the man who owns the team.
And this is the, this is the, the part that sucks. He's an excellent businessman. He's an excellent marketer. He's an excellent salesman. But for running a football team, he ain't excellent at that. I'm sorry. That's Jerry Jones.
He's not. And I don't think there will be a point in time unless he just gets real, real, real old and realizes he can no longer really, really do it, that someone comes over and takes over the team. It ain't happening.
And that sucks. Welcome to another year where the Cowboys won't do a damn thing. It's the JR sport re-show on CBS sports radio. We will get to America's other team. We'll get to the Los Angeles Lakers.
I'm going to take more of your calls. We'll get into Aaron Donald swinging helmets like he's in a video game. Oh, you didn't hear Aaron Donald was trying to bust heads today in practice. He was trying to bust heads of the bangles. Yeah.
The team they beat in the super bowl. I'll explain. I'll get some more of your calls eight five five two one two four CBS. You are listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio.
You are listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio. First time caller had to pull over to the side of the road just to make sure I didn't miss my opportunity. I want you to know that I appreciate your candor. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS. All I can do is bring my candor and my honesty and realism. I try.
I try a lot. Eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS.
I'm going to take more of your calls as we continue on with the show. We'll talk about Aaron Donald the destroyer. He was trying to whoop some ass in practice today against the Cincinnati bangles. We'll get into the LeBron James situation. I guess I could call it the Los Angeles Lakers situation. It's their team, right? Or is it LeBron's team?
Patrick Beverly is now on the team and he's had a quite a few words for Russell Westbrook over the years. They've had a quite a few words for themselves and then Chet Holmgren this man broke his foot basically in a meaningless summer league game or not even summer league or pro-am and now he's done. But before we move on to any of that we've been talking about the Dallas Cowboys another year of being okay and going nowhere and it's unfortunate. Mike McCarthy will coach this team and maybe they'll go to the playoffs and be eliminated and then what are we doing starting again next year with the same crap? I feel like the Dallas Cowboys are doomed as an overall not specifically this season they could have a winning record record they could win nine and ten games. They could win the NFC East.
But who's looking at the Cowboys going to championship nobody? Robert is calling from Portland you're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, thanks for having me come on your air.
I appreciate you taking my time. Absolutely. But I'm a lifelong Cowboys fan. I mean I started following the Cowboys back in 1973.
I've seen all the good I've seen all the bad and all the bad as he would be under Jerry Jones, but that's neither here nor there. Right now we're talking about the Cowboys this year. Well, they got the best quarterback in the division. Does that make them best from it? But they're still the best team you have to see East. I know a lot of the talking heads think the Eagles are going to be the ones to win the East but the best quarterback in the division is going to win the win the division and that's the Cowboys now beyond that's not that's that's I don't expect them to win anything. Yeah, correct. That's not saying a lot when the division is not all that competitive in the first place. No exactly.
That's kind of my point. I'm not a big I'm not a big Dax fan. I was a big Tony fan. In fact, you know, like I told you I've seen the Cowboys since 1973 and the saw by guy.
Let's get him out the booth. The Aussie Tony's great in the booth is but the Cowboys as a team, I mean defensively. I think they're I think they're underrated but offensively I think they're overrated. I think that Dak really took Mississippi State to number one in the nation for what two three weeks and then they then they choked and I see the the Cowboys doing that exactly the same way. They'll be the best team in the league for two or three weeks and then Dak will choke. Yeah, but I still think the win the NFC East yeah, but that's I think lots it correct.
It is it's not saying a lot of anything. I think this Dallas Cowboys squad with Dak at the helm and I know they gave him a new contract 40 per a starting a season or so ago before he broke his ankle or after he broke his ankle that that's that's not enough Dalton is calling from Topeka, Kansas. You're on CBS Sports Radio the JR sport brief show Dalton where the hell you at eating boogers. Mike is calling from Buffalo. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, you know, this is Mike from Buffalo, you know, big bills fan. I think the Cowboys have a very very hard chance at even winning these in my opinion with Philadelphia. Giving them a run for their money and even though I'm a bills fan and I was a fan of Brian Dabble while I was here.
He's doing some work with Danny Dimes over in New York and they got some weapons and he's got an accuracy problem, but you know, he helped Josh Allen a lot with listen, Daniel Jones will get the boot when he sucks and that's likely to happen. So I wouldn't get to up in arms about that. You're absolutely correct. I agree, but Cowboys just don't have the weapons to compete in the playoffs. Correct. I agree. Yeah, they don't have both, you know, CD lamb goes down. They're done. They're done. Well, CD lamb is already he's already coming off of an injury. I mean, well, Dan, what are we supposed to do here?
They're already coming off of an injury. Chance is calling from Portland, Oregon. Go ahead chance. Yeah, that's my name.
Yeah, I thought it was Steven A. Smith for a second. My bad. I understand you want to get, you know, good people love to talk about the Cowboys because the ratings go up. I get that and I respect you. I've been a fan of you for a long time. I'm not really a Cowboys fan.
I like NFL teams, but you know, first of all, CD lamb have a small cut and it's on its foot. You know, where the hell are you? Yeah, I'm here. This is this. It's my job to sit here.
Where the hell are you at? I apologize. What I'm saying is CD lamb have a small cut that the Cowboys won 12 games last year, which was a big improvement from the year before that their defense has gotten better under the old Atlanta coach. They were the number one offensive team in football last year with Amari hurt half the season. His name is Dan. His name is Dan Quinn.
The offensive line is in shambles right now. You didn't even mention Zach Martin though. Yeah, he's on the right side.
He's the only guy. He's an all-pro. Yeah, there's more than him on the offensive line. It takes exactly, but we've been playing pretty good with that and plus we got the rookie who can jump in and yeah, no, no, no, no, no rookies. Rookies typically don't jump in offensive lines.
First rounds don't offensive lines take time to gel sure, but that doesn't mean they're going to be garbage. Yeah. Have you heard? No, no, no, no chance.
I'm going to save both of us some time. Did you actually hear the totality of everything I said? Did you hear the fact that I said they'd likely and probably will have a winning record? Did you hear me say that they'll probably win the NFC East? Yeah, I'm not worried about the wins. Well, did you hear everything that I said? Yes, I've listened to everything you said, sir. And so the Cowboys season, I'll ask you this. In your opinion, they conclude where?
I think they could win the playoff game. Oh, great. Great.
But do you think it's a fight for the expectation that every team can win a championship during the year? No, no, no, no. How realistic are you? No, that's not. No, no, no, no, no. Stop and listen to me very carefully because you came on the line talking nonsense. You came on the line talking about the Dallas Cowboys project ratings. Listen, Dallas Cowboys project ratings because Jerry Jones does an excellent job marketing and selling the team. That's why we're talking about them.
They are worth $8 billion more than any other franchise on planet Earth. And with that comes an expectation that they will win because that is what he has sold the team on. But year after year after year, it's not surprising or shocking that things have started to wane when it comes to them actually winning. They're going to hit a wall, man. Ain't nobody talking about them winning the damn thing this year. That's the point. That's the sport re-show CBS Sports Radio.
