Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Arjo Cha in on me of course from bt be an from readier as you're humble host on the OCHO. It is Thursday the third day February twenty seventh two thousand and twenty starting to feel like a Friday. Hopefully you've got a short week an early weekend. You have been working hard. I know you deserve it and Yeah it's Thursday which means it's the day after Wednesday and this past Wednesday was very cool and before we get into that brief programming note by the way We had told you that on Wednesday. You would have a brand new episode of the seven five in your podcast feed. We had to do some shuffling. And so you did get a brand new episode Bruce and the boys with Michael Sizemore in Tom Rail. So that is there. If you go back on your feet and there will be an episode of the seven five zero following this episode of the Ocho You know if you it's about eight. Am I duNno? Probably drop about eleven thirty. I guess. Eleven eleven thirty central time so I began to look for that myself in two time. Superbowl champion Tony Casillas. I saw Tony and Social Media. The socials you know at the cowboys. Golf Club had a photo of a camp signed by Super Bowl champions and reigning super bowl. Mvp Pat Mahomes very excited to hear the story behind that. So get ready for some 750 action. I mentioned that Wednesday was a fun day. Obviously we got to hear from Mike McCarthy. Mike McCarthy's first press conference as the acting head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. We know obviously that he had his head coaches introductory one at the star in Frisco but this was at at the NFL. Combine Indianapolis wearing some cowboys garber. You know Mike McCarthy and a cowboys jackets chilly this time of year and finally you know. We got to hear sort of his thoughts on the team. You know the the introductory press conference is always different. Because you know coaches are being a little bit more political and they're kind of enjoying the moment and it's more about the higher of them as opposed to the structure of the football team and so. This was very interesting to hear some of the things that Mike McCarthy said we wrote about this. We collected a bunch of tweets from reporters. That were there if you want to read about. Blogging Boys Dot Com. It's all sort of in one hub. Nice and neat for you. But Mike McCarthy obviously was asked about Dak Prescott who will get into a little bit odd hours. Prescott is he a franchise quarterback. That's a question that a lot of people for whatever reason have been asking there. I'm sure you know somebody who has Applied to take to the situation of well. I don't know man you know. Maybe Mike McCarthy doesn't want Dak Prescott maybe that's that's why a deal hasn't gone down. Mccarthy must want something else not McCarthy said that Dak Prescott is absolutely franchise quarterback in fact his exact quote was Dak Prescott definitely. It's exactly where we want to be with that. I think what he's done speaks for itself. Debt is in a business situation right now. I've gone through this with a number of my players in the past and like anything. It's time to be patient and let the business people work out the business matter for what it's worth by the way today the day. You're listening to this episode on Thursday the NFL has officially or will be officially opening the franchise tag window. I I like to think of it as a little window. Somewhere and three forty five Park Avenue you know they just open the windows open and as of February twenty seventh. Nfl teams can officially placed the franchise tag on players. Whatever franchise tag type? They want is obviously up to their discretion. The deadline for placing franchise tag on a player is March twelfth and the NFL did announce step as of now. Obviously we are operating under the currency which means that in the final year which this is teams can place to franchise tag franchise and transition tags. Which is something that we've talked about a lot here on the Ocho so as of right now the cowboys technically can do that and I say right now. It's about six. Pm Central Time on Wednesday haven't watched survivor nobile and that's an important detail. And so if a new CBA is ultimately agreed to buy all the necessary parties then that ability would dissolve and it would just be one franchise tag always has been. There's a lot of talk about the new. Cba players think Aaron Rodgers headed tweet. He's the Green Bay. Packers Rep Richard Sherman had a tweet. He's obviously the San Francisco. Forty niners REP and so I don't know it's hard to tell whether this is going to come together quickly. Or if it's going to be a factor or whatnot. We just this really truly in my best Jason. Garrett voice is a day by day process but anyway back to McCarthy Mike McCarthy also noted that defense is get you to the championship quarterbacks win the championship. He said he believes that deck is the one that can do that. Oh yeah you're preaching to the Choir Mike McCarthy you know this also interesting because Mike McCarthy was asked about play calling and this has been a subject of discussion obviously with the fact that Kelly Moore is going to be returning to. The cowboys is the offensive coordinator. Obviously not part of Mike McCarthy's outward hirings Kellyn. Moore's time in Dallas Precedes of Mike McCarthy's very Jason Garrett Ish you're telling me tell me the offensive coordinator. They're really young offensive corner. There was a backup quarterback for the team that won number. Seventeen telling me he's He's sticking around then covered this book before. But anyway Mike McCarthy said that he has a new job and he said I get to start over and take those never again statements back. I've had a lot of time to think about it in terms of the fact that he's GonNa let Calamar call the place and you know. I think that Mike McCarthy has spoken with a lot of conviction he seems a very much so to have benefited from the year away from the game. I think it's obvious how much he missed football. And I think that's obviously Mike. Mccarthy doesn't WanNa take advantage of anything else ever again at that you know. I don't want to put words in his mouth and say that he took advantage of his time in Green Bay. But I thought that was really interesting. Mike McCarthy said that he's going to go out to Oxnard California and just going to kind of get the lay of the land before the cowboys training camp and I don't want to read too much into anything I don't WanNa make a huge deal out of the small things but that really stuck out to me because that to me says that this dude is taking every single detail extremely seriously because I think some people would say who cares are what training a football field. Is there a weight room you know? Is there Therapy areas? You know physical therapy and whatnot cool. Then we'll be fine but I tell you what I think. It's really cool. That Mike McCarthy wants to go see for himself to understand what training camp is going to be like later this summer. if you've been to. Oxnard you know that it is a unique place and So I don't know that Mike McCarthy is going to be overwhelmed but it is important. I think to understand because Jason Garrett's regime Jason Garrett's time is the cowboys. Coach was a whole era. And there's a lot to learn. There's a lot to kind of get caught up to speed on and so I think it's important to know even things like this obviously isn't of critical imports. But this is this is where the coaches like to go have dinner. You know this is where we usually have coffee in the mornings and things like that. Those those little moments. Those are powerful. I think that it's a great idea. For Mac Macarthur. It'd be out there Great Show Joan of tolls had a tweet noting that Mike McCarthy highlighted to back offenses as a trend in today's NFL that he mentioned the San Francisco Forty niners and how they use their backfield. And let's get the party started. It is Tony Pollard. Season in fact Mike. Mccarthy mentioned the San Francisco Forty niners a lot during his media availability on Wednesday at the combine. And he's mentioned if you watched the it was like an hour long interview he did with Peter King Back. I think it was in December. That's on Youtube. And if you want to go in the Peter King podcast feed. I believe it's there as well is very much worth your time. If you have not listened to yet and at the time Mike McCarthy even said he really liked her Shanahan was doing obviously a lot of people like to Akash. Shanahan was doing this past season In the bay area and I have to imagine that Mike McCarthy it's a copycat league right. He's he's looking at that same in fact that the cowboys job I got. I got Tony Pollard. Oh y'all and so. I think that we could see some more utilization. I've Tony Pollard. In the cavs which is something to get very very very excited about. I also think you know it's worth mentioning that Mike. Mccarthy said he wants many cowboys back as as the team can have in terms of free agency. He noted that he was very impressed with Randall. Cobb in his first year away from the Green Bay. Packers much Mike McCarthy and so I think that that bodes well for the idea of Randall Cobb returning to the cowboys twenty twenty. Obviously we talked on Wednesday about how Bucky Brooks is latest mock draft features. The cowboys drafting. Cd Lamb. In the first round I don't know that civilians seventeen overall if he did if the cowboys drafted him. I think that that's a randall. Cobb LESS WORLD. But you know it is. What is the final thing before we take our break that I wanted to know the Mike McCarthy said that was very very interesting two things one is? He noted that he has been impressed by the analytics within the Dallas Cowboys Organization. No way that's pretty cool man pretty cool and the quote. That was my absolute favorite and again. I'm reading this from Joe and it tells us on. Twitter at jonet tolls. Nfl great friend of our show. Once again Mike McCarthy said when you make the commitment to special teams your roster needs to reflect that it's a focus of ours and Mike McCarthy also talked about. I should mention how you don't want to be a team that has a system and you don't draft a player because he doesn't fit that system he noted that if if a guy's good football player you can play from me talking about himself obviously and that that philosophy. That's how you you don't draft Tonko Charlton over Tj. What the cowboys we all know fell into their system onto their archaic ways fell into that belief that cloud their judgment. I think we would all agree and you know over the last few years so it is refreshing to hear them. I've McCarthy has I think there's so much about analytics is kind of the Buzzword of it all but it does feel like Mike McCarthy at the very sort of unlocked his brain in his ear away and so he's capable of looking at the situation from a more macro perspective which is a really really really good thing for the Dallas cowboys in a very exciting one so good Good Vibes Colorado. Mike McCarthy's press conference immediately ability. I should say at the NFL combines so we're GONNA talk about don't worry I'm GonNa tell you right after we get back.
