This week the guys talk preseason – where the football is fake but the moral ambiguity is oh so real.
Flanny and Cope present what we know about the Zeke Elliott suspension and give their take on the troubling allegations before going into what it all means for the team and potentially the entire league (12:24). The guys also discuss Jason Witten’s take on the situation (14:00). Moving on to the lighter fare of very heavy men, the guys talk offensive line (24:56), and Cope has high hopes for La’el Collins as the man to replace the retired Doug Free at right tackle (25:15). Then Flanny tells us what the most overhyped offseason story has been so far (34:56) and then Witten basically agrees (35:35). Next, they delve into some defensive line talk (44:08) where Cope informs us which Cowboy needs to put on his “big boy pants” and step up this year (46:38).
Surprising no one who watched the game against the Rams, the guys let us know that they’re less than impressed with Kellen Moore and talk about rookie Cooper Rush in the discussion of who should back Dak Prescott (54:18). Cope wraps up thoughts on the current state of the Cowboys with a take on Jason Garrett and what we can say about whether or not this is starting to finally look like his team (59:10). There’s also a few thoughts on young receivers and defensive backs.
