welcome back into the one giant podcast, as promised, coming back here in the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bears Dallas Cowboys matchup.
Nothing better than a bad season.
You might as well be enjoying watching the Dallas Cowboys potentially squander away a golden opportunity to lock up the division, get themselves to their seventh win when they have the Eagles at five and seven, taking on your New York football giants just around the corner here on Monday Night Football.
I will just go ahead and freshen up the old beverage here real quick and then come back in on this fourth quarter.
Action is there about coming up on 12 minutes to play 31 to 14.
You got Chicago on the ball rain now, so we'll see what we get into as we look in on that live game action and determine whether or not Dallas can make one last ditch effort here.
Obviously, it's been a struggle for Dak Prescott.
Obviously, Robiskie continues to be playing at a high level for himself.
Ah, he's given you three touchdowns after that early interception twenties one of 27 2 27 on the evening, this Dallas defense was unable to get stops quick.
Throw out to the outside there to come in, gets a quick 34 yards there and brings up a second.
And ah, yeah, you think second for a 2nd 6 Rather, I think here and has become a underneath this.
Ah, 13 minute mark down.
We're pushing down towards 12 minutes to go in this game.
Impressive win, right? Impressive win for the Chicago Bears, a team that's getting right at the right time.
I think defense playing at a high level and certainly catching a team like the Dallas Cowboys going the wrong direction at the right time for you.
We go inside the NFL numbers.
Let's just go ahead and take a look at those Dallas Cowboys.
Let's take a look at that schedule and see what's happened to ensure Biscuit in the shotgun.
He's now got Montgomery with him on his right hip for wide receiver set.
The quick little draw play gets caught behind the line of scrimmage fans to fall forward there.
Looks like he'll keep it out about Ah, third down in seven as we approach 12 minutes to play.
Oh, what did we see? What did we see we Ah, we see that the coming to this game, the ah, you know, Dallas Cowboys were losers of three other last four games with one wing coming against the Detroit Lions, having lost to the Patriots and the Buffalo Bills this past week.
The real problematic statement that you're watching there certainly has 1/3 and seven and too risky steps back.
Three wide receiver set atop a screen.
And you've got, I believe, ah, Alan Robinson all alone by himself down low.
And they will goto indeed, taking that shot well out of reach there.
That's okay, Uh, and that will be the third down play here, stopping the clock with 11.
So that's why I want to come back in on this one is certainly not out of reach just yet, but it's a Dallas Cowboys team that you know, lost three of the last four.
And when you think about the fact that they gotta win against ah, the new New York Giants back on November 4th, you take that game away from this and your time One.
Listen, you go back, right? Start now.
Three, you know, and guess guess where they beat in those three games.
You want to know about the true measure of a team? There's six and six so far now trailing in this one.
Their 1st 3 wins were against the Giants, the Washington Washington Redskins in the Miami Dolphins.
You take those away.
This is a three and six team against all other competition.
Oh, by the way, this is a ah two in 16 if you take away playing against the New York football giants.
So that kind of gleams about where the true talent level downtown level, where the true results lie inert around this Dallas Cowboys team on.
And I'm not knocking just cause I'm a Giants fan.
And this is just objective opinion here.
When you're taking a look inside these numbers, you start to realize, Okay, so you lost to a quality team in the Buffalo Bills.
A quality team, the New England Patriots, a quality team, the Minnesota Vikings all playoff teams, by the way, a quality team in the Green Bay Packers, A playoff team playoff team.
New Orleans Saints.
You beat Ah, 23 teams that are combined.
What's eight win team now? It wins between the New York Giants, Russians, Redskins and Miami Dolphins.
At this point of the season, you also lost to the New York Jets, who got blown up by the time winless since in any Bangles recently.
And you also ah, got another win against the Detroit Lions, who are dead last in their division.
So just something to think about there.
And when you talk about this division, we were saying, How did you want to see this one play out? It's just it has to feel really embarrassing on the side of the New York football giants.
Do you really could have been competing inside of this one? That being said were, they don't lose here and fall to six and seven, and you have a meeting head to head against the Philadelphia Eagles, who they previously got a big win against 37 10.
I don't know what that says about the Philadelphia Eagles that a team like this in the Dallas Cowboys.
Yeah, I mean, it's nothing about that.
Take away the outside of their division and the Miami Dolphin game.
This is a team that that's taking away five of their five of their six wins have come against some 500 division opponents and the Miami Dolphins everywhere else.
Playoff caliber teams have beaten them, and E in the warden's game was a weird one.
They lose 12 to 10.
You lost by 10 to Green Bay.
You lost a tight one against the Jets, but you lost 28 24 time one against the Vikings, 13 to 9 against against New England and 26 15 against Buffalo Bills.
So you don't listen.
They've lost some games relatively close, I guess you could say, but that's what they are, right? There are fringe playoff level team in terms of how they played and then in the NFC is you still have a chance to win.
We highlight the following this Chicago game.
If they were to lose at six and seven, they would still have three more matchups coming against the L.
So we're gonna be that wild card hunt in that cell in that picture.
Certainly, then, that at Philadelphia.
And then we'll get the cushy home giving us the Washington Redskins.
We were highlighting a scenario earlier about man.
I would take it if the Giants could bump the Philadelphia Eagles out of playoff contention on the final game of the season.
Washington Redskins The two teams will be at the bottom of this division are going to be offered opportunities for the other two divisions rivals to make or break their playoff hopes because whoever wins the division will go to the playoffs.
Whoever loses will not be making the wildcard run.
So gonna be very interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out of Pierre Louis swallows up Ezekiel Elliott there in the backfield.
This will be now a second in 12 for the Dallas Cowboys, well inside their their own area here at just the five yard line.
Now 2nd 12 in the shotgun, 34 wide receiver set with Jason Witten split out from his own end zone.
Prescott sets fires, connects with yours truly.
Jason Witten gets himself after the 19 yard line and first dance.
We come up on 10 45 to play here in the fourth, still plenty of time.
If they were able to get down the field and certainly a touchdown and get get to 10 points, you at least give yourself an outside chance here. 17.
Not going to do it for for you at this stage.
Gotta look to move this pace here and probably be scoring was still eight minutes on the clock.
You don't want to have any hope here.
Prescott back again, fires down the field.
You're gonna want to cover a Marquis Cooper a little bit better than that.
Gets wide open down the sideline as some of the defensive players there.
Chicago Bears look around just to check to see what happened on the coverage.
It was, Ah, Fuller out there and coverage looks like.
And then I don't know if that if that was hot clinics coming over on safety help as well.
So now for the shotgun again. First intent.
10 minutes to play, approaching midfield.
Starting to get that offense going here.
Kept the defense back on their heels a little bit.
Dak Prescott takes the snap.
Four wide receivers going.
He will pump, pump, pump now tries to roll out.
Tries to avoid contact.
He's one deep in out of bounds down the sidelines, stepping away just for a moment here and then coming back in on the game action as I freshen up a bit.
Certainly if you are the Dallas Cowboys, you have the best case scenario.
There was saying that getting that ball thrown away and he's giving yourself an opportunity.
The clock stopped to keep things going here.
Not a great look.
Taking a second down play for about six yards, finding Amari Cooper.
But the clock will continue to run.
Coming up on 9 30 to go here.
Got a first convert here.
Obviously, it's four down territory, obviously.
You know, when you're down by 17 you need to get this thing going here.
So they go back into that five wide receivers set with Jason Witten split out.
Why there, Zeke, on the left hip of Dak Prescott.
Time just ticking, ticking ticking away here.
Now that's 9 18 Stop gets off.
Prescott looking firing, unable to connect there with nice coverage from Tolliver, who lost track of a Marquis Cooper on the previous play.
Four down and four had all adds a nice one on one opportunities, but you let it develop their little bit of pressure coming in his face.
And then it was.
Cobb also had over the top coverage there, and little bit underneath.
So we'll say fourth and four.
You want to talk about spelling the end or end or beginning of some game action here, this will be it.
Clump three waters to top of screen.
Now Mark Cooper will move down to the bottom of your screen with Jason Witten there at the tight end position.
Snap comes, pressure comes, bull gets out.
And nice job there from the Chicago Bears. Got pressure.
Got inside on Dak Prescott.
Tried to just whip one out there quickly.
Does he kill it? Gets away from him.
And now with 909 to go, that will spell the end of the night here.
I think for your Dallas Cowboys, So they will fall to six and seven.
And I'm only going in this direction because I'll go through it.
Highlights some of the, uh, stat line here is that we saw in this game.
And then I'll probably step away at 10.
50 heading towards the 11 o'clock hour.
I got to get my beauty rest.
So we dive inside these numbers a little bit here.
Already highlighted the battle between these Ah, between these two quarterbacks playing to just a rating of 1 80.
Travis Key on the 22 or 29 2 30 with 7.
9 average yards there.
Three touchdowns, one interception.
Sacked twice for a loss of 13.
Just 13 of 31 1 57 Giving you taking two sacks for 88 You are lost there and then a 58.1.
Uh, not to be writing just reading.
Not that q b r just yet.
Ah, in the running game.
Listen, Elliot 19 carries anyone yards, 4.
3 and two touches.
You have to certainly like it doesn't mean that you got the result that you were hoping for in the overall game.
And obviously 82 yards with the press got falling for one yard on three carries.
Isn't gonna do the damage here.
You're not going to probably get up over 100 yards in this game.
Obviously playing from behind here over the latter part of it on the other side of the ball.
3 with along a 20 for Montgomery.
Consistent numbers from him.
Travis Key scrambles for nine for 64 in a long team long of 23 7.
1 average for him.
Got the rushing touchdown in there as well.
To Rico in gives you just to cash for eight.
But overall, 26 carriers for 141 yards.
Talking about your biscuit, giving you over 300 of total yards from scrimmage.
We dive inside those receiving numbers.
Let's just spread that ball around right.
Found his main target early, Robinson right now with five for 48 in those two touchdowns in the first half.
Three for 56 for Holtz, three for Miller for 40 to 1 catch there from Cordell Patterson with a ah for 33 yards, highlighting the other one.
Anthony Miller had that other touchdown for whiskey as well.
Six for 24 foot three, Cone out of the backfield, using him on those third downs. Converting.
Moving a change.
That's perfectly fine.
So read this ball around there a lot, certainly while Amari Cooper is at 4 55 and that's Ah okay.
Night. Not certainly a dominant one.
Remember that? Ah, I believe Prince and Malcolm are not active in this one either, So I thought there would be some matchup opportunity there.
Gallop just for 45 3 for 25 for women.
And not a lot to speak of their from that standpoint.
Ah, we take a look now inside that defense, right? We mentioned both teams at a couple of sacks here, Certainly.
Ah, highlighting, though, You know, I mean, Dak Prescott really not doing anything one way or the other, Not taking chances.
And getting turned on getting turned over just flat out, not getting the job done.
So we talk about this.
Totally ours to anyone at 3 51 of the night so far.
So the Chicago Bears are certainly exploding here as thief.
All start will go against that, and that will back up a little bit.
Ah, but Highlands, take quick, take a look.
Look around here.
Five total pass deflections.
Very active hands on the defensive side of the bowl.
Like watch the Cowboys.
They had the same though three Q B hits for that cowboy's defense.
How about six for the Chicago Bears getting in and around that pressure, doing a nice job there? Highland schedules.
Right now, Eagles have the benefit of playing the Giants twice, plus the Redskins and the Cowboys at the head.
If you feel like you can see the writing on the wall of the Cowboys missing the playoffs and Jason Garrett being fired, I get it.
That feeling makes a lot of sense to me as Montgomery goes off the right side and picks up about the penalty first.
Maybe an extra yard there will bring up a second down and possibly about nine here for the Chicago Bears with just under nine minutes to play.
Ah, and then you just look at these numbers over anything else that we take a look at.
Four tackles for loss for the for this.
Ah, defense on the campus, on things.
But listen, that's about it.
Not a lot to gleam here.
Well Ah, well, just watch this drive kind of play itself out.
See how much time the Chicago Bears were able to run off the clock? We talked about how you want to see the Cowboys scoring with about eight minutes to play, to give them a chance here.
And right now it looks like the Chicago Bears have a great opportunity as they give the inside draw their on second and 10 picking up to two and 1/2 yards there.
Bye, Montgomery, now bringing up 1/3 down at eight.
We'll see this clock down to the 7 30 mark underneath seven minutes by the time they have to punt it away.
If they were not to convert, and then at that point, you're talking about being three scores down 17 in about seven minutes a game action for a team that has not been able to muster up much over the course of this second? Yeah, certainly so.
Defense of the ah combination.
Right? Dallas Cowboys been sputtering, but this defense for the Chicago Bears looks like they're starting to get fired up at the right time here as we will see a time out, it looks like taken by the bears.
Want to make sure they just make the right decision here at 7 55 mark.
As we highlighted, they'll get this playoff play ****le run down.
If they had to hunt away, you'll be underneath seven minutes.
So you gotta figure in the least 2 to 3 minutes to score.
So I'm not in a lot of money.
This scenario, the they're gonna be six and seven.
And now, when you talk about it just to go ahead and take the bloom off the Rose here if you're a New York football Giants fan, if Jason Garrett is fired after this season, that's not the guy that I want coming into the New York football Giants.
I don't want a guy that has taken what everyone has agreed on.
Year after year has been higher, and talent probably has had arguably the best or a worse second best talent level in the division and has played that out to an occasional division title and playoff losses.
Why do I want that? You have that one of the best rated offensive lives in the league and you're playing to a six and six soon to be six and six under 500 record as Travis Key does a fantastic job finding his man there on the curl rap for what would have been a first down, backbreaking play there.
And he goes ahead and does not bring in the bread into the basket, as they say and will allow Ah, the will allow the fourth down play to come up here, keep a little bit of time on the clock, at least for the Dallas Cowboys.
But, um, yeah, that does not move the needle for me.
It'll Jason Garrett does not move the needle for me.
They were highlighting about You know, you have Ron Rivera. Certainly.
Now he was a little bit more for me.
Got to a Super Bowl has won some divisions.
That's a playoff win. Certainly.
Even at that, I I think I'm getting more and more into the area in the realm of saying what I'd like to see the New York football giants do is go to a new hire.
You want to go into the college ranks? Uh, you know, I could see that you want to go and try to find someone who deserves a promotion from a coordinator position.
That isn't a coordinator like Pat Shurmur, who had been a head coach and then went back to being offense coordinator, where I think he was thriving and probably what he's best suited to be doing in these particular in this, particularly, um, I'd be curious to see what the what the Giants are gonna choose to do.
But if you tell me that they are seriously considering Jason Garrett in the off season.
While I obviously will give him every opportunity as the head coach, I would be less than enthusiastic about that kind of higher.
7 40 to go here.
Prescott dropping back, almost gets himself sack, manages to get out to Ezekiel Elliott, who gets swung out of bounds there after a four yard pick up 7 36 together, the clock will stop.
I just want to see this thing.
Get down about five minutes.
You've got five minutes.
Then I can go and check myself out of this and get myself some much needed shut eye up until then, all bets are off.
Doesn't back his Prescott looking firing wide open is gonna be gallop there down the side and get himself out of bounds.
Quick. Little first down there.
Nothing like padding your stats late in the game.
Prescott moving down the field there 7 11 to go now up to ah, 183 passing yards, averaging 3 15 on the season.
So again, and by the way, you're also talking about taking his last two drives.
Where's me and virtually nothing in this game per se and then he's talking about having more about 110 yards on this night.
So these are these are again.
I'm not gonna talk too much.
You're facing some soft coverage is here.
A Z gets it out.
So Witten, they're picking up.
Goes the other tight end jar when picking up a handful yards there as they go back and show the Strabinsky throw on the outside looking for Miller.
You catch that bowl.
The clock keeps running to get a first down there.
Even just three more, please.
And you're going to run this thing basically down there, probably about the four minute mark at that point, and get the kinship feel.
Don't give yourself a 20 point lead.
As Miller explains in the silent Robinson, it was just so easy.
That's why I didn't catch.
If it had been harder, I would have caught it.
It's only my explanation.
That's the way I look at it.
Friends as Ah, little injury there on the deep inside the bowl and now, at this point to if you are the Chicago Bears is what you don't want to see, right? If you do not want to see any substantial injuries here.
This is how you know Who is that? You know, it's time to get out the door, starting at the yawns.
Ah, you know you want to see is having any injuries.
Come up here down the stretch of this game.
Get out of here healthy, get yourself off the field and give yourself an opportunity.
We saw earlier in the first half touchdown drive it will walk off with.
Certainly had an injury concern there in the offensive receiving corps.
John picks up the first down as we approached 6 15 to play here.
Oh, I don't want to stick around looking for a nice pick.
Six year, maybe just a big sack for a nice loss.
Let's see, though, as certainly if you're the Dallas Cowboys.
I mean again, if you don't want to the window dressing.
Guess we're taking some shots.
You got six minutes to play in this one.
What's your you know? What are you looking to do here now? 15 seconds of play clock.
Also taking their time getting this ball.
Let's come from the outside to get outside quickly.
And there you go. Almost picked off.
They're looking for Darwin again on what would have been a six yard pickup.
So again, I know that.
Bring the pressure here.
You gotta run some go routes, get it down, get it down field and see if you guys can make a play.
If you're not picking up 20 yard chunks here, there's no real point to bother them with this.
You're looking for Whitney on that one actually goes behind him with Tolliver coming down there to assist on the linebacker coverage.
But if your dad lets just take, take the rips.
Come on, You don't give yourself do three wide set.
Give yourself a little extra traction so Prescott can have a little bit of time.
Keep Elliot in there.
You're gonna have covered over the top for the safety's Take your chance, take your chance and try to get a look here.
Because right now, 5 49 to play.
You got nothing doing.
Here we go. Plenty of time.
Yeah, Go work in the middle of a field.
You get to gallop.
He tries to work his butt off to get on the bounds and does manage to do it.
So nice job there.
They make cola block in the pack on the ah, number 10 here for the Dallas Cowboys.
That's not going to make you feel so good.
Uh, overall, you get the first down and we'll see here.
Was this about a 5 10 15 25 yard pickup at the 25 yard pickup? Will see.
I don't think there should be a foul call there.
Oh, yeah, they will. Helmet to helmet.
That's what they're going to get among.
I thought the block in itself seemed okay getting into him, but they will get you on that helmet a helmet, and ah, this is gonna cost them.
I bought a 15 year penalty, So a 15 yard penalty here, and, uh, that's gonna take away 15 of will take away.
It would be a 10 yard gain set of the 25 yard game.
The clock does stop, I guess you want that positive? They are inside the 40 here.
If you're the ah, you know, you need three scores a matter which way you slice it.
I would consider running out here kicking the field, going and going that onside kick as Prescott fires went off to no one in particular.
20 may have got that ball touched a little bit from behind him, but you're in that part of the fields year.
Why don't you get yourself down to the 30 on the 10 yard fifth? 10 to 15 yard out round.
You're gonna have that cushion stepped out of bounds.
Five plus minutes of play.
Here, kick the field goal.
Get yourself the 17.
Go for the onside kick. All right, then And there.
No point to try to play this string out and just see if you can give yourself an opportunity.
Get that second quick score if you recover it and then think about what you want to do.
Tyler Austin, there.
Number 10 was called on that penalty, and then maybe we're looking for their on the outside.
You got him already.
Cooper, down on the near side of the screen here, as we would like to see out of the shotgun if they could get anything going for them here.
Prescott on the stat pressure coming Gets it out quick.
Makes the catch.
Thio Cooper stars the top of the screen there, down inside the 29 again.
This is where I say you want to take a look.
Here, take your shot.
But then get that I get that you don't have to kick the field goal.
Understand what the game dictates.
Here, you need three scores.
You can't even score two point conversion to give yourself a shot.
I don't know what you're doing.
Just wasting away time here as thankfully they get the injury time out with the Chicago Bears going down.
And once again, if you are the Chicago Bears get every starter out off this field and just see if they can do anything against your second unit.
Because right now the last thing you want to risk is getting injuries heading down the key stretch for us.
You will get yourself now to seven and six.
And as he gets off the field here with 5 10 to play, we will see clock starts running again.
Get up to the line, take your shot.
Just the four man rush doesn't dump off over the top there, too.
Ezekiel Elliott makes it sort of sense by my standards.
Picks up the first down in a nice 11 yard gain there.
4 50 to go here in this one.
Sorry, not quite nine and 1/2 yards, so we'll still be here.
Ah Ah, second and one Prescott in the shotgun.
Four wide receivers that wouldn't split out.
One fires around the corner there.
That's a beauty of a ball.
I got to give him all the credit in the world there.
Connects with Amari Cooper for the touchdown.
That is a nice thrown ball on an incredible timing around.
If Cooper gets bumped off his rap by any stretch, he's going to be, Ah, have a hard time getting this one.
This bowl is throwing.
He's at the 10 yard line, if not earlier and a nice little breadbasket over the top and a great job from Amaury Cooper bringing this one in touching those toes down beautifully.
Their got credit where credit is due.
A beautiful ball thrown as Ah Cooper's about 11 yard line.
Let this one go Very nice.
Over the top will connect here.
We'll make it a 10 point game.
Please don't mess around.
Just kick the onside kick here and try to recover it so that I can.
No, I can get out of here.
I hate having to stick around for these kind of games.
Extra point is up in through, and it is now window dressing.
10 point deficit for the Dallas Cowboys, 31 to 21 I were talking about Certainly you've got Dak Prescott padding out those stats so it doesn't look like he had as ugly game as maybe he did.
It doesn't look like this defense did a stronger job, but they go inside the booth.
Look with Joe Buck in Troy Aikman waiting for this kickoff to happen here, waiting for the Dallas Cowboys to be six and seven, waiting for the Chicago Bears to be 76 and still be competing with this win here, we'll try to check out the We highlighted this earlier when we were on for the broadcast.
Who do the did did you do of the Minnesota Vikings play Next pressure will be on the Vikings against the Detroit Lions.
Listen, I mean, you know what would they play to the last time? First time they saw him, they won this 1 40 to 30.
So they beat him up bad defense.
So you'd be hard pressed to think they're gonna stop Dalvin cook.
So you assume they get the win there and get the nine and four.
You'll be seven and six of the Bears Chargers game, and it's gonna be hard to catch him.
Gonna be hard to catch him.
Well, they go with swift kick to the 30.
All right, listen, I've lost interest in this game.
I hope you enjoyed some of my bonus coverage here.
I tried to stick with it as long as I could, but I am going to go ahead and step away here in the 31 21 game with 4 20 to go.
Um, even if they run this clock out, all right, I'll still stick around till they use the time outs. Good grief.
Until they use all three of their timeouts and, ah, and and assure that the next tribe can't happen. We'll see.
They run for a first down.
Let's just have that.
Give me a one first.
And then I know that we could get away from this one.
A nice victory for the Chicago Bears.
When you look back at their season.
Certainly the thing that you're gonna highlight from their standpoint.
It's just the early struggles, right? Mitchell.
I didn't have a lot going for him early in the season.
The defense played a little bit out of character.
Uh, certainly as the cow was will call their first time out and will be a second intent coming up here first.
I'm taking, um, he's at six and six.
It'll be. We'll get to seven and six.
Um, you know, you talk about, you beat the lines, you're lost to the reins.
You beat the Giants and the lines again so they might have gotten some victory.
No, no, I don't like the Dallas Cowboys.
By the way, you start to look over the rest of your schedule.
You beat the Redskins as well.
You did beat the Vikings of the Chicago Bears.
Did the first meeting in the season.
The Packers won the beat. The Broncos beat the Redskins.
So you're getting wins again.
You lost the Eagles in that match up there, and that's probably when they would have liked to have had back would have been a big win for them.
They're losing that game.
So, um, you know, early struggles have hurt them.
You get right against the part of the schedule that you feel like you showed as Montgomery just rules around there and then gets gang tackle and thrown to the ground by 1/3 and 10 here and the second time out for the Chicago for the CIA and the Dallas Cowboys will be taken.
Um, you know, But listen, you go of 13 out of your last four here and again if you look back over the season and you probably say the Raiders have been more competitive.
I think people thought they were gonna be so, um, you know that that's it.
It's okay to have lost that game early in the season.
I think maybe that charges the Chargers game in the Eagles game.
Those are probably the two charges eagles in the Rams.
You say you would have liked to have at least 11 of those three, possibly two of them, but winning evening, one of them.
Now you're talking about getting yourself to an eight and five record rather than seven. And six.
You'd be looking to go t eight wins here on this season.
So that that that that plays a pretty big factor.
I think on those were probably where you look to it.
And you say you wish they had done a nice job there, but you're busy getting out his hand, and there we go, gets it out.
So 45 on the side and that will effectively wrap this one up here.
Ah, so but yeah, Listen, you know, this is the way seasons play out, right? And you know, if you're if you're the the Cowboys while you again, we highlight that schedule, you say? Oh, well, those three, you know, to start the season, it really doesn't matter for you.
Likewise, for the Chicago Bears, I think with the highlight is you were three and one and you got a good win against the Vikings early season when they were struggling.
That's more what you're talking about, right? You're taking a look at that and thinking, What could we have done if you would maybe got the winning? It's the Rangers or you lose two Raiders Saints get the win against the Chargers.
Lose the game to the to the Lions.
Get back on track at the start of the Eagles.
Beat the line's gonna get that win against the Rams, and then you're starting role being a four game win streak.
Now five game win streak.
Then you're starting to think like you have an opportunity there with the Packers game, the Chiefs game, the Viking team toe.
