  • Do you think it's fair to give the Cowboys a pass based on DAX injury?

  • Well, it depends on who you're asking me about.

  • If you're asking me about the team collectively, I'll say yes, because you got a third string quarterback, a second unit as your offensive line and obviously a defense.

  • That's horror that has a defensive coordinator who has no business being the defensive coordinator.

  • But if you're talking to me specifically about Mike McCarthy and whether or not he deserves a pass, hell, no.

  • And here's the reason why he hired Mike Nolan.

  • Now Marcus Spears, let me say this to you.

  • Um, you know, you know how I like to troll cowboy fans because I can't stand those noise and disgusting, disgusting people.

  • I can't stand cowboy fans.

  • They're the worst.

  • But I didn't joke around this past weekend because it's not funny to me.

  • It was so bad.

  • It was so bad.

  • What I saw from them.

  • It was just a national embarrassment.

  • I'm serious about that.

  • I mean, right now you could make a legitimate argument.

  • I'm gonna roll with my man to playmaker Michael Irvin when he made when he tried to make the argument that the Cowboys may very well be the worst team in all of football, maybe with the exception of the New York Jets.

  • And if they were going against the New York Jets, could you bet your money definitively that they would beat the Jets?

  • That's how bad the Cowboys are on.

  • When I look at Mike McCarthy.

  • Guess what with that Prescott.

  • You were losing games at the beginning.

  • Your offense was prolific, but your defense was given up over 38 points a game.

  • And why was that?

  • The reality?

  • Because you have a defensive coordinator.

  • The last time we saw him as a defensive coordinator with six years ago when he was the coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons and they were the 31st ranked defense in the entire NFL, that's on Mike McCarthy now.

  • Derry Jones and Stephen Jones told him to keep telling more, well, damage.

  • You had the top ranked offense when Dak Prescott was quarterback in your team.

  • You kept being 14 down and being in the hole, and Ezekiel Elliott hadn't shown up yet.

  • But you were still putting up points.

  • And the reality is, Is that so?

  • When you look at yourself offensively, you were very potent, but you were still losing games because your defense stuck and your defense stuck because you decided to get rid of the dudes in Marinelli and retarded.

  • I thought did a pretty damn good job over the previous two years, over and over the defense for the Dallas Cowboys.

  • But you got rid of them and you brought in your dude and your dude has no business being a defense coordinator.

  • And as a propose it, maybe it's still worth.

  • Bring it up that the only reason that Mike Nolan has made news this year is a because his defense is horrid, and B because he got Tabasco sauce in his eye during the press conference.

  • Had to leave for three minutes.

  • That's about it.

  • And so when I look at it from that perspective, I'm just saying, Wait a minute, I can't let Mike McCarthy off the hook Now, if you were if you were losing games, guys, because suddenly your offense use only scored one touchdown and your last 31 possessions since that Prescott is going out and that's why you will lose the games.

  • That would be different, but they would lose it before that.

  • Prescott got hurt because the defense stuff, and that's because of a coordinated that has no business having that job, and Mike McCarthy gave it to him.

  • That is where I hold Mike McCarthy accountable.

  • That is why he does not deserve a pass.

  • No, he doesn't deserve a pass.

  • But let me be very clear why.

  • It's not because losing your starting quarterback, a quarterback of Dax, obvious leadership abilities, which are glaring now that he's gone right now, you can really see it.

  • It's not just that any team would be.

  • It would have a tough time with that.

  • Like recall, we give Mike Tomlin enormous credit for last year, because without Roethlisberger they went eight and eight.

  • But Tomlin did already have a good defense, and they then traded for Minka Fitzpatrick.

  • Right When you look at this Dallas defense, not only was it nothing to write home about last year, they then lose Robert Quinn and Byron Jones, especially when you look at Jones to free agency.

  • That's like almost 20% of your defense at a high level and the defense was no good last year, so so in from that point of view, you can say, Okay, they deserve a past.

  • Let me tell you why I'm not going to give it to them.

  • The reason that COWBOYS don't get a pass for STRUGGLING NOW Stephen A.

  • It's not just what you said, which is true.

  • They were losing when Dak was healthy.

  • It's not just hey, they really needed help on the defensive side of the ball, especially given the defections to free agency.

  • CD Land may be the best player available, but go drafts, um, defense, like go figure out a way to fix that.

  • And they didn't do that.

  • It's this, you know who gets a pass.

  • Teams who've built equity teams who've built equity get a pass.

  • When I was in L.

  • A doing afternoon drive, I used to tell Lakers fans and there was a dry spell right?

  • I used to tell Lakers fans, Hold on, calm down.

  • The Lakers get a pass.

  • They're the most successful franchise in the history of basketball.

  • They're dry spells last a couple of years and they include sometimes making the playoffs.

  • Then they go back to winning championships.

  • If we're six years has bought your loyalty and patience the last six years.

  • They lost for six years.

  • No, no, no, no.

  • Say a couple of couples to, like lost six e.

  • I understand they did.

  • They did this time, which was their longest dry spell.

  • And then they got back.

  • Not to the playoffs, but toe winning a championship.

  • So six in between championships, 10 years, whatever the point is Lakers fans.

  • The Lakers have earned their loyalty and their patients, even though the standards of sky high cowboys haven't done that.

  • Cowboys haven't been really relevant in a big way in the playoffs in a quarter century.

  • They haven't done that.

  • The Patriots have bought and earned your loyalty and patience in New England.

  • Let's see how this shakes out right?

  • The Dallas Cowboys haven't done that.

  • They don't get a pass.

  • They were eight and eight last year with Jack and Byron Jones and Robert Quinn in a division.

  • They should have run away with it.

  • They missed the playoffs.

  • No pass for the Dallas Cowboys.
