Ep. 15: Preseason vs. Indianapolis



This week the guys bring you a shorter than usual show because sometimes less is more and, of course, less Moore is always more (Oh SNAP!).

Flanny and Cope give you a quick news roundup (1:04) before diving into how the team is looking with real football nearly here. They’re both impressed by Dak-to-Dez (2:37). Next, plenty of O-line talk (5:23). And when it comes to Rush vs. Moore, find out what Cope says he’s about ready to change his mind on from last week’s show (9:41).

Then the guys switch gears to defense to talk about Jaylon Smith (20:54), who finally played football! Then some D-line talk (25:38) where Cope tells us what his main concern for the defense going into the season is. Next up, some discussion on the secondary where Flanny lets us know why he’s concerned that we haven’t seen action from those rookie corners yet (30:15). A quick word on special teams (33:58) and a brief look-ahead to Saturday’s Oakland game (35:46) wrap up the show.

Ep. 14: Preseason Look-In



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.

2017 Dallas Cowboys Draft Review



This week the guys had tacos at the top of their snack draft board. They feel good about the Cowboys’ 2017 draft in general and go over each pick in detail, starting with DE Taco Charlton (6:14), who Flanny says is the most polarizing 1st-round pick since Travis Frederick. Both he and Cope like the selection, and they go into what we can expect from him (9:36) and why he may even prove superior to the pure pass-rusher some fans might have been hoping for (13:13). The guys follow up with second-rounder CB Chidobe Awuze talk (16:35): Flanny thinks he can already be considered a top corner on this squad, while Cope – who does like the pick as well – argues he might not even be the top corner chosen by Dallas in this draft.

Flanny and Cope get into the ups and downs of the rest of the Cowboys’ selections, which included some troubling concerns (21:40), one uplifting story (33:09), and one or two head scratchers (36:09) in what they deem an overall successful and exciting 2017 draft for Dallas (38:09). They conclude with an overview of the undrafted free agent situation (51:03) and remind you to keep an eye out for the next show once training camp time rolls around.
