Hangin' with the Boys: No Phony Leader
As Jayron Kearse referenced in yesterday's interview, Dak Prescott is the unquestioned leader of this team. Nate and Jesse talk about what that means, plus the boys get into this matchup with the Chiefs and how Dallas' offense may be the key to any success on defense.
Hangin' with the Boys: Chasing sacks?
Having faced some suspect offensive lines, has the Dallas defense been too focused on getting sacks? After all, they're 27th against the run. And is all that pass rushing causing wear and tear on Parsons? What's the solution? He plays more linebacker? Plus, how the running game is helping out Rush.
Hangin' with the Boys: Give the Man Credit
Surprise! Surprise! This team is now 3-1 without its starting quarterback. Maybe it's time to give Mike McCarthy some due credit for how he's leading this team. Sure, the opposition isn't exactly great, but the Cowboys, and in particular the defense, are doing what they've got to do to get it done.
Hangin' with the Boys: Keep the Light off
The Cowboys don't want Washington to figure things out because they've got talent, so got to keep that light bulb turned off. Plus, there are several injured players on the verge of coming back. Who currently on the roster needs to show up and show out in order to not lose his spot?
Hangin' with the Boys: And A Bag of Chips
Is this a trap game? How do the Cowboys not overlook a struggling Washington club? That offense has more talent than you might think. Plus, what about players like Gallup who are working their way back from the mental side of being injured? And in case you didn't know, Jesse is the guy.
Hangin' with the Boys: Rushing Around
Whether it was the defense bringing the pressure, the running backs chewing up yards or the quarterback engineering a comeback, there was plenty of "rush" talk coming out of that win over the Giants. We also saw the debut of Peters, Wilson bringing the hits and more. Join us on this Victory Tuesday!
Hangin' with the Boys: Feeling a Little Irritated
Quarterback controversies? Common colds? Offseason moves? The latest news has got Jesse feeling kind of cranky on this fine Friday. But it's all good as we talk about what we should expect from Michael Gallup in his return, take some calls and make some predictions for the Monday Night showdown.
Hangin' with the Boys: Mind Your Gaps
How do you slow down Saquon Barkley and the Giants running game? Stay disciplined. Plus, we talk about how the Cowboys work stunts and twists to free up others to wreak havoc. The culture seems to be changing in New York, but is it enough to slow down Parsons and the Dallas defense?
Hangin' with the Boys: Dancing in September
It's time to take a look at how this Cowboys offense matches up with the Giants defense. Do they need to keep that same balance of "purposeful" running? (Yes) And do they know just what Cooper Rush can do? (No) Come celebrate Nate being nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame with us!
Hangin' with the Boys: Depth Charge
It wasn't just Cooper Rush stepping up to help get the Cowboys a win, but others like Donovan Wilson made their presence known as well. Plus, is Noah Brown the No. 1 for Rush? And is a more evenly distributed offense the way to go? Let's all still bask in the victory over the Bengals.
Hangin' with the Boys: Cooper Rush Does it Again
They guys breakdown and recap Cooper Rush's performance, Micah Parsons dominance and the Cowboys big time win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hangin' with the Boys: Rush to Judgement?
With Cooper Rush set to lead the Cowboys this Sunday vs the Cincinnati Bengals, the guys weigh-in with their final predictions and game picks for Week 2.
Hangin' with the Boys: No Fair Shot
Micah Parsons isn't getting one-on-one matchups anymore? No kidding. But can he and the defense bring the pressure needed against the high-powered Bengals? How are they going to slow down maybe the best receiving corps in the league? And can CeeDee Lamb be a No. 1 if there's not a good No. 2?
Hangin' with the Boys: Let's Get Physical!
For the Cowboys to just survive on offense, do they need to get more physical? Is that even possible? Do they have enough physical individuals to create a physical team? We look into the Cowboys offense against the Bengals defense, one that features another tough defensive line.
Hangin' with the Boys: League of Talent
Does the Cowboys offense need more creativity? If so, is it a problem with scheme or the actual talent on the field? Should CeeDee Lamb be allowed more time to grow into the No. 1 receiver role? And is Dak Prescott really going to be back within four weeks? So many questions about this offense with no sure answers in sight.
Hangin' with the Boys: Not Enough Show …
… Because the Cowboys didn't show enough. Time to break down the disaster that was the season-opening loss to Tampa Bay, most notably the injury to Dak Prescott and the play of the offensive line and wide receiver corps. At least Micah Parsons provided some feel-good moments, right?
Hangin' with the Boys: Nothing to Worry About
So Dak missed some practice time because of … a shoe? We're not too concerned, but should we be? Plus, there's a big game on Sunday. What are the keys to success? Is it all about the interior of the offensive line on both sides of the ball? And we'll throw in a few over/unders and make our predictions.
Hangin' with the Boys: Iron Sharpens Iron
Tom Brady has seen it all, but others on the Buccaneers offense maybe haven't. Can Dan Quinn and the Dallas defense find those weaknesses? Can Micah Parsons take his game to even a higher level? And will the team's depth at defensive tackle, safety and cornerback raise the defense's play overall? Yes, Yes and Yes!
Hangin' with the Boys: Fast Start And Goodbye
Coach McCarthy said that Zeke and Pollard are a tandem, but just how are they going to use Tony more? Plus, how important is it going to be for the Cowboys to get off to a fast start against the Bucs? Can they even do so with Vita Vea in the middle? And finally, we say so long (for now?) to one of our own.
Hangin' with the Boys: Get Your Five and Go
What should we expect from Jason Peters? Should he eventually start? If so, should Tyler Smith move to guard? Do you put your best five on the field or is it better to keep continuity? Plus with all the uncertainty on offense, can Dak Prescott raise his level of play and make those around him better?
Hangin' with the Boys: Putting This Thing Together
Who got cut? Who's coming back? What do the Cowboys still need to do? Gallup was also put on the active roster. Is he going to be ready? Is there a risk he's being rushed? And maybe most importantly, how are they going to protect Dak's left side? How do they make sure Tyler Smith doesn't fail?
Hangin' with the Boys: Chicken Cheese
Roster cuts are coming. What's it like for the guys when the Turk comes knocking? Are there some dark horse candidates to make the roster? Will any veterans be let go? And what are the Cowboys going to do about left tackle? Is Tyler Smith ready? Is this perfect storm they find themselves in self-induced?
Hangin' with the Boys: 0 to 100
Don't the starters need to play a little on Friday? To get in sync? To be ready for the hits coming Week 1? Will these guys be prepared for the Buccaneers? And where does the offensive line stand right now? Should they make a trade? And will Turpin be used as more than just a returner? We got something to say!
Hangin' with the Boys: The Defense's Time?
This has always been an offensive team. Can the defense carry the load now? Some think so, others say not quite yet. It's an offensive league after all. Speaking of which, how we feeling about the wide receivers now that two are a little banged up. And how big a role is Zeke going to have? Is more Pollard really coming?
Hangin' with the Boys: Setting the Tempo
The 'Boys break down the first preseason game and discuss whether how the practices are run are contributing to the issues on the field like penalties and toughness. And where is the line between who plays in the preseason and who doesn't? Plus, how about a few travel tips?
Hangin' with the Boys: Where's The Toughness
There were plenty of positives in the scrimmage against Denver, including Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons, but should we be concerned about the toughness factor of this team? Do they have the fight in them? The boys break it down and highlight who they want to see on Saturday.
