You! You! You mhm! Yeah! Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, Yo! What? What, What, What, What, What? What? What? What? What? What? What? What? What? What? Welcome back.
How about them Cowboys? I'm still on this.
I'm still on this.
But welcome back, toe.
How about him? Keep McPherson coming to you from North Jersey Giants Country.
The land of Giants fans.
More so than, uh, many other places, I want to say more so than New York.
But that might not be true just because the population But I live about 10 15 minutes from MetLife Stadium.
I make sure to let everybody know that you're looking at a Dallas Cowboys fan born and raised in New Jersey.
But I could not rep the New York football Giants or the New York Jets because I never thought it was cool that they played on New Jersey soil but didn't carry the New Jersey name.
I'm a Cowboys fan of suffering Cowboys fan, a lifelong Cowboys fan in New Jersey, and this is a huge game today.
It is a huge game today.
I repeat It's a huge game today.
I'm worried about it.
I'm nervous about it as I think I should be.
Dallas Cowboys defense gives me nightmares and I want to lead it off with what this article underneath me is about.
Richard Sherman blasted Cowboys defense Man.
Everybody had something to say about the Cowboys defense this week.
If it wasn't the week before or the week before the week before, Cowboys should be.
Oh, and four on onsides.
Kick away from being on four crazy.
So Richard Chairman.
Blast the Dallas Cowboys defense and I'll pull some of his quotes.
We all know they've struggled.
They've given up record amount of yards in the first four weeks, Richard Sherman says.
Well, I can't say I've heard of it often.
I'm sure it's possible, like they've talked about.
His scheme is so complicated, so variable, so diverse.
People think that means good defense, and it doesn't.
You don't have a foundation, you don't have an identity, so you have nothing to fall back on.
Mike don't like Mike.
I talked about on this show.
Mike Nolan doesn't deserve the job of defensive coordinator for your Dallas Cowboys, but he got it anyway.
People know the name, but he doesn't exactly have the pedigree.
Toby the guy in that position, up in the sky box watching the Cowboys defense Absolutely give it up weekend and week out, and everybody came for the Cowboys this week.
I reference Richard Sherman.
Marcus Spears also laid into the Dallas Cowboys all around one Xavier Woods quote.
And, uh, I'll have to read that quote for the people that don't know.
But Xavier Woods says, our efforts been good.
I mean, on certain place, some guys, me included.
There may be a lack, but overall, the effort is there.
I mean, you don't expect we're in the NFL.
You don't expect guys full speed for 70 plays.
It's not possible you, but you're going to push all you can.
I mean, we know you don't expect the backside corner to make a play on the opposite side.
If he's running full speed the whole time, it's just not possible.
To be honest, Mr Woods, we know that we know that there's 11 guys, right, but we don't need you to say that all 11 guys can't make every play because you don't know what's gonna happen on every play, Run to the ball, be aggressive, be physical, give 100% on every snap.
We don't need to hear from you saying, you know, 70 plays, guys can't go full speed.
We know that, but you're on.
One of the worst defense is in the NFL.
You haven't played that great.
You can't come out and say that now.
Mike McCarthy had to come out and try and defend it, and everybody had to talk about it this weekend.
I'm just like this is whack.
But McCarthy says, I think it was a situation of trying to answer questions after a poor performance.
It's the way I would classify it.
I don't think it's a statement that could be laid up against every possible situation in football is faras hypotheticals and things like that.
We've addressed our performance.
Sunday it was pour the coaching on pursuit and expectations is online, with everybody's expectations and understanding on how do you play this game now the Dallas Cowboys.
Stephen Jones, Mike McCarthy? They've come out to say that they're not gonna make any drastic changes.
I've been beating the drum for Earl Thomas for weeks.
We're not going to see your old Thomas.
They're not gonna fire Mike Nolan.
We're gonna rock with the guys we've got.
And yeah, here come the New York football Giants with Daniel Jones, the number six overall pick from last year and blah, blah, blah.
People are expecting them to light it up.
People are expecting the Giants to come in here without Se****, Barkley and score points, and I'm dreading it.
The spread opened up at Dallas minus 10 Which, on paper, when you look at the talent on our team versus theirs, it should be Dallas minus 10.
We should blow these guys out.
Shouldn't even be close.
But that spread has since moved.
And before kick off, I think the Spread is gonna be down to a touchdown.
When I last saw, it was 7.5.
Now I'm trying to locate it.
5 Still, So, Cowboys their favorite 7.
5? I don't know.
Betting against the Cowboys is the move for me because my heart wants to see Dallas when? But if I bet against Dallas in Dallas loses, at least I hit and I make some cash off of it.
I'll probably have to bet the Giants to cover that 7.
I think it's gonna be a shootout.
Our defense sucks.
It's not gonna just magically get better now.
Perfect segue into something that I do want to talk about going into this week.
Help is on the way, and there will be some different guys.
You'll see some different numbers of different jerseys out out there.
Not Earl Thomas. Sorry to disappoint.
Brandon Carr was cut, so you will see number 30.
Anthony Brown back off the IR.
He's a solid player.
If you guys remember we drafted him out of Purdue.
He's played for us the last three years.
He's a solid corner.
Might be the best corner on this team.
Uh, Jordan Lewis is weak, and, uh, Cheeto is hurt.
So Anthony Brown, we need you today, bro.
Now a lot of you Cowboys fans that are really deep into the roster and follow this team have been, you know, keeping an eye out for Donovan Wilson the last couple of years.
And I think he's going to get a shot today.
I really think he's going to get a chance to make some place to get today against his Giants defense, and I hope he does some new blood in there.
And Travis Bernard? We should see him, Um, no promises there.
He's been signed to the active roster, but here's what I want to focus on right now when I say help is on the way.
I already mentioned Anthony Brown already mentioned a woozy A but late van duress.
Give it a couple weeks.
We need help it linebacker Jaylon Smith just hasn't been it late.
Vander S is on his way back.
Sean Lee is also on his way back.
We know Shawn Lee's injury history.
We know Sean Lee is on his way out at the end of his career, but his veteran leadership is something we could certainly use.
Randy Gregory, another guy that is, uh, coming soon that we could absolutely used and Cam Erving.
So help is on the way.
There will be some reinforcements.
I'm pumped about it because we need just any type of new life new blood into the Dallas defense to try and help us get by.
Um, let's look at these roster updates quickly, so I gotta put in its, um, best before they start.
So we mentioned Anthony Brown.
He was on the IR.
He's back. Francis Bernard, Bernard.
We've heard his name.
The kid out of Utah.
He's on the 53 man roster today.
Marcus Henry has been promoted to the 53 man roster today.
Stephen Parker promoted to the 53 man roster today.
Now here's some down points of this week that I got to talk about with the offensive line.
Enough on the defense.
Theofanis of Linus struggling.
This is not the Great Wall anymore.
This is not the All Pro line that we built with three pro Bowlers like we had in the past couple of years.
This line is hurt.
Joe Loony went down.
He's placed on the IR.
He's gonna be out for 2 to 3 weeks.
The neck injury.
Season ending IR.
He's gonna have surgery. He's done.
This line is in shambles.
We're going to go with some rookies, some undrafted guys, and, uh, I don't even know.
I don't even know what to expect.
And Dak was asked earlier in the week about Oh, yeah, how do you feel behind this offensive line? And Jack said, Hey, these air professionals, these are NFL players.
Uh, they'll get the job done.
They wouldn't be here if we didn't think they could get the job done.
But we're rolling out there with Connor Williams.
Connor Williams is in his second Earth, or, I think, its third year in the league.
We're rolling out there with Tyler.
It's his first year in the league.
Guys like Brandon Knight.
Guys like Terrence Steel.
Uh, Zack Martin is our strongest guy on the offensive line, and we got a hope that he can really just anchor this thing and hold it down.
They got a block.
It's gonna be tough out there today.
Markus Golden, Some of these guys on the D line for the Giants.
You know they're gonna wreak havoc.
They're gonna do what they gotta do toe, you know, cause some problems for Dak and Dak has honestly been playing M V P level.
He's leading the league in passing yards, and it sucks.
But we've been playing from behind trying to play catch up in a lot of these games, and that's why We're throwing it all over the place, but expect the big game out of deck.
We're gonna need a big game out of Dak.
We're gonna need a big game out of Zeke.
I would love to see us run the ball in control of this game.
We've turned it over so much in the last few weeks.
We shot ourselves in the foot, so I'm really hoping that the Cowboys can establish the run.
I don't want to see us running on first down, but I want to see us consistently hands eat the ball and not throws eat the ball.
If we lose this game today, it's not good.
I looked at the schedule with you guys earlier in the week on the Thursday show.
I do kind of kicking off the week and this is a must win game, right? We should have one last week, but they scored too much too fast on us.
We've got three home games in a row.
If you include last week, which you should.
Obviously we lost that one, but now we have the Giants today, the Cardinals next week on Monday night, we should win those games and then we go to Washington.
We have a chance to win three games in a row.
Turn this season around.
In my opinion, those games are vital, and I think they're all winnable games.
So starts today with this, uh, Cowboys Giants game.
I hope Terrence Steel could do his thing.
I hope Brandon Knight can do his thing.
This this'll line is unproven.
It's gonna be interesting.
We got to run the ball, though, and we gotta get the ball out of Zeke's hands.
It's gonna be tough behind this offensive line, but it can happen.
It could get done.
We have all of the talent.
Giants don't have that much talent on paper.
There's no way the Cowboys should lose this game on paper.
The Cowboys should win this game nine times out of 10.
But I'm thinking there's gonna be some update some upsets today, and that's a good way to segue into my pick.
So for my first pick of the day, I'm taking the Cowboys to win.
I would take the Cowboys money line, but I'm gonna take the Giants to cover that 7.
5 spread is just too high for me.
Ah, Cowboys team that gives up points is way too high.
UH, also Arizona.
Now let's go into the games that are not cowboys.
If you guys watch this every Sunday, I give you my picks, give you my thoughts.
And I've got about 15 minutes before I got to go lock in my draftkings, Um, before I got to go drop some money and draftkings and locking my draftkings parleys and bet.
So let's run through it.
Cowboys not taking I'm taking the Giants to cover that 8.
5 Cardinals Jets Jets are playing right up the street against the Cardinals.
I'm taking the Cardinals to cover that seven points.
I just think they've got enough offensive firepower and the Jets just don't have anything.
Aren't gonna figure it out.
Sam Donald's hurt.
Not expecting Joe Flacco to lead them the victory or put up a bunch of points, even though Levian bells back and I I do have them in fantasy sucks.
I gotta run him out there.
I'm low on backs.
Austin EC lawyers hurt.
Ian Bell scored 10 points for me.
Next game. One o'clock.
Raiders Chiefs This is an early game out there in Arrowhead, UH, one o'clock game.
Chiefs were favored by 11 10.
I'm taking the Chiefs to cover that.
The Raiders kind of fooled me after they beat the Saints on Monday Night Football.
The Raiders kinda had me thinking that they had it together.
They don't have it together.
They're not that great.
They got some guys hurt.
I hope they get Waller going.
Got him in fantasy.
But I'm taking the Chiefs Bengals Ravens now.
I expect the Ravens to win this game, but I also expect Joe Burrow and the Bengals to compete.
They're feeling themselves.
They got a tie and their first win.
That's two weeks without a loss.
That's back to back weeks without losing for the Bengals.
That lost back to back week pretty much every week the last few years.
So I think Joe Burrow will compete, but he's going to run into a real defense today, not the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Give me the Ravens to cover.
They're gonna be on a mission to prove that there is still one of the top teams in the A F C.
Hopefully, Lamar is good I know he was on the injury report.
The battle for Pennsylvania.
The Philadelphia Eagles go to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers.
Now the Steelers have been off a little bit because of the Covitz stuff, and that's a whole another thing.
I guess we'll talk about it now, man.
Uh, this whole season, the whole complexion of this season is gonna change.
It's already changing.
You've got guys like Melvin Gordon talking about.
I'm tight because he wants to play, Um, the Buffalo Bills and Tighten. We're gonna play.
The Titans were the first team to kick it off.
It was like, Man, what happened there? The NFL, I will say, is extremely arrogant for thinking they could play their 16 game season as constructed before we even heard of the coronavirus running out there with the same schedule as it was.
Just no fans still having these guys travel.
But mostly not creating some type of bubble or some type of scenario where there's less travel in these guys, you can stay in a quarantine environment when these guys leave the stadium.
We don't know where they're going.
They're coming back to the stadium.
They're testing positive when the staff leaves the stadium.
We don't know where they're going.
They're coming back to the stadium and they're testing positive.
It doesn't bode well for this season.
I had a friend that didn't want to plan our fantasy league this year because he said, Yo, you can't control the coronavirus.
I don't wanna be losing players to the coronavirus.
And here we are, guys like Cam Newton.
We're gonna miss him this year and fantasy, I have him sit on my bench.
I don't know how the Patriots move forwards without their best defensive player, arguably and their best offensive player.
Arguably, If I'm the Patriots organization, I'm saying, Hey, this is not fair.
We do not want to go into competition without our best guys, but either way, they gotta do it back to the games.
That was my little coronavirus rant.
I gotta take the Steelers just cause I hate the Eagles, but I do expect the Eagles toe compete.
I actually might make a partly where the Eagles upset because there will be some upsets today.
Last week I called all the games all wrong.
There's gonna be some upsets this week is just with the coronavirus.
The state of the country.
Uh, it's October is getting ****ky out here like it's Week five.
Somebody's gonna upset.
There might be a couple of sets.
L A Rams Washington football team will not be an upset.
Um, I appreciate you guys throwing the tips.
Yeah, baby and Nicor Booger 15.
Appreciate y'all See you all in the chat.
Also, this is a good time for the people watching that are not in the chat.
Make sure you have an account SportsCastr go up there and making account.
I think I'm pointing the wrong way, but either way it's in the top right corner.
Go up there and making account so you could do what I'm doing.
Log on, share your thoughts or just follow me and watch what I do.
And there's a bunch of other talented SportsCastr people on here that you'll find as well back to the gates of getting sidetracked.
But I'm getting hype because we're under the half hour mark until kickoff.
I gotta get my bets in. Okay.
L A Rams Washington football team.
I'm taking the Rams to cover that 7.
5 rams can I get an offensive game from you guys.
Can I get a game where you put up 30 and and make it look easy? Come on.
You got the guys to do it.
Get Malcolm Brown going.
Get Cooper Cup going.
Get Robert Woods going.
Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons.
Uh, this isn't an upset to me.
I think the Panthers are gonna go in there.
The mighty Sir Pers and they're gonna punch the falcons in the face.
Julio Jones is not playing.
Uh, look, for Calvin really to be the guy, but they gotta, you know, they gotta stop him.
Stop! Todd Gurley.
I think the Panthers the back to back weeks that they want, I think they went and beat the Cardinals and they beat the Redskins.
I wasn't a believer in Matt Rule, but he's got these guys going teddy to gloves.
Gonna do this thing.
If the Panthers win by a field goal, they cover the spread.
I'm taking the Panthers.
Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston, Texas in the Bill O'Brien era is officially over.
So you know that the Texans looking for their first win of the year, you know that they are going to go all out to prove that.
Hey, Bill O'Brien was the problem.
And this team is good and we've got talent and we're gonna do this.
Romeo Crennel is the interim coach, traditionally a defensive guy, But I forget their offensive coordinator.
Look for him to air it out.
Look for him to take some chances with Shawn Watson.
Get cooks going.
I drafted cooks and Fancy hasn't done anything.
Why not? Use him.
Might open it up for Will Fuller down the field if you use them underneath.
I'm taking the Texans.
I don't like that spread.
I probably take the Jaguars.
Actually, Now I'm looking at that spread.
I might take the Jaguars plus six just cause I think the Texans, the Texans at all in four I don't think they're gonna blow them out.
Miami Dolphins 40 Niners gotta take the Niners all day.
I think it's to a time I'd like to see the Niners blow out the Dolphins so they could put two in the game.
Ah, another high spread 8.
5 points is a lot to cover for a team.
I guess Garoppolo is back.
They better get kid on the ball.
Raheem Mostert is back, so him and Jared the Jet McKinnon should get gone.
There are no, they're not in Miami.
There in Santa Clara, it's warm there to 40 Niners to roll colts.
Brown's who this game is.
**** near pick him.
This was a one point spread its in Cleveland.
And let me tell you, I told Lawrence I told Joe New Bow on the NFL SportsCastr Morning Stream. We did a 10 a.m.
every Sunday at 10 a.
Check us out. We talk about all the games. We give you our picks.
This game is closed because I think people are fooled by the offensive output that they saw from the Browns last week in Jerry World.
Do not be fooled by that.
Cowboys weren't tackling.
They were running some plays that were dead to rights that just they just ended up going for scores.
They're going for bigger place because guys weren't tackling.
They weren't wrapping up.
I think the Colts are better football team.
I think the Colts defense is a much better defense for this Browns offense to face.
They're going to challenge them.
They're gonna make them do things.
They're gonna try and take Odell Beckham Jr away.
I'm taking the Colts plus one.
It's plus one easy.
Minnesota Vikings Seattle Seahawks.
This is the Sunday night game, and I like the Seahawks, obviously, and I liked him to cover that spread.
Russell Wilson is on a M V P run.
His defense is kind of suspect.
Jamal Adams is out.
He knows he has to score points.
Got to kind of do it on his own. D.
K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and I picked up D.
J. Moore in fantasy.
He's a sneaky play.
If he scores to put up like 15 points, give me the Seahawks.
The 12 to cover this spread 6.
5 win by touchdown at home tomorrow.
Tomorrow, they thought the Patriots.
We're gonna play tomorrow.
They're not gonna play the charges.
And Saints are only a day away.
I'm taking the Saints in New Orleans to cover that 7.5.
They're supposed to have Michael Thomas back.
Another guy that's been putting up MVP numbers balling since they paid him, and I just think the saints start to really get a rhythm going.
They've got a lot of guys banged up on defense, but at home, I don't see them losing to rookie quarterback Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers.
I know the charges have a good defense and all that.
But if Mike Thomas's back in that lineup, whether he's ready to go or not, just the threat of him changes the whole game.
It's gonna open it up more for Kamara.
Drew Brees is out to prove he's not done.
He just needs his number one weapon back.
Michael Thomas changes everything for them, and I think this game is on Tuesday.
Is it not here? Yeah, it's not in the draft.
Kings spreads. Let me go to ESPN.
The Bills Titans game.
This Bill's Titans game is gonna be on Tuesday, and now you get NFL four nights a week.
Monday Tuesday, Thursday Sunday, Coronavirus coronavirus.
Broncos Patriots is postponed, but the Bills and Titans will play in Tennessee on Tuesday, October 13th.
I think our favor, but this is a matchup between two undefeated teams in the A F.
C, both playoff teams from last year.
I'm trying to find the spread.
I don't know why spread would not be here today on Draftkings, I need to spread.
There's no spread in a pickem in a pick him.
If I gotta go and just pick one team without a spread, I'm going.
Josh Allen and I'm going to Buffalo Bills.
I would just take the Bills.
Josh Allen is another guy playing like an M V P, and I like that.
They're they've been playing.
I feel like these teams, like the Titans, these teams, like the Steelers, have been thrown out of whack without the week that they like.
You know, these guys are creatures of habit.
They have a rhythm and, you know, they had a random week off unexpectedly, so I don't know.
I just don't expect them to come out and crush it.
I think the Bills keep growing, and I think the Bills win.
Let's see if I have any other notes that I wanted to get out or anything else I wanted to talk about before I shut this thing down and go put my bets in.
That's 70% effort.
Comment was hilarious by eggs a ver woods, but it ain't it, boss.
That's not what we need Boss Tyron Smith, done for the year. That sucks.
That's also not what we need.
Cowboys Air on four, in my opinion, not that Falcons loss is not a good or that Falcons one is not a good win to me.
I'm barely even counting it.
Um, but yeah, the hits keep coming for the NFL with the coronavirus.
This season is in jeopardy.
Jeopardy! These guys had the longest runway toe figure out how to safely do an NFL season, how to safely have an NFL season without all of this.
And they said, no, we'll be fine.
We're not worried about it.
If anything is gonna give us NFL four days a week and, uh, we're gonna push through because nobody is bigger than the shield.
Nobody's bigger than the shield.
The shield is bigger than any player, Any organization, any team they're gonna push through and do what they gotta do so that the NFL can continue.
They're not gonna take a break.
I saw someone say, Oh, maybe they will.
Maybe they'll take two weeks off and figure out how to do this and come back.
Uh, they're not canceling it because they're trying to have these games on TV.
There's ad dollars.
There's a lot of stuff online with that.
Then when you look at other leagues, MLB is down to their Final Four teams couple weeks from now.
MLB be over potentially tonight.
The MBA could be over.
You've got Game six of the NBA Finals tonight that ends.
The NFL has a huge opportunity to be the only ticket in town to be the only game one they could dominate.
Television ratings. The rest of 2020.
They are not trying to stop anything they're not trying to break.
They aren't trying to take a couple weeks off to regroup and think about things.
They're ready to go.
I'm ready to go Rock and roll.
I got about 20 minutes to lock in my parleys.
I got 20 minutes toe, make some vets make some food and sit down and watch these games.
I'll give you my upsets one more time.
Let me see here.
I had my upsets written down quickly.
If you're gonna play, you might as well play the upsets.
So here's Here's the upset you play and you play them as Faras covering? Um, not necessarily Toe win.
So I like the Giants.
I like the Colts plus one.
I like the Jaguars plus six.
I like the Panthers plus two.
I like the Eagles plus 7.
5, and that's about it.
Alright, this has been How about him? I don't even know what episode this is, but this is Week five.
This is my Sunday.
There are my picks.
That's all I've got for you.
Like I said, I gotta get my picks in on Draftkings.
And, uh, yeah, I gotta do what I gotta do.
So good luck to you If you're a Cowboys fan, how about them Cowboys? We cannot lose to the Giants today.
It's a huge rivalry game.
Like I said, I live in New Jersey.
I'm in Giants Country.
I'm 15 minutes from the stadium.
I won't be able to live it down.
We need a win. We need a win.
We need a win. We need to win.
Okay, That's all I got.
I'm about to be out.
Where's the music? Play the music.
Somebody cue up the music.
Somebody play the music! There it is! Oh, way
