Here it is, folks. As promised. Another busy week in the NFL and thus another late-week podcast special.
Now, I hear you. How can I keep calling a second podcast of the week “special” if I make a second podcast in the week a regular thing? Or, as my good friend and former Bristol colleague and Bill Simmons compatriot Gus Ramsey put it on Twitter Thursday: You have more “special” episodes than “Moesha.”
First of all, I’ve never been compared to Brandy. Secondly, this week’s second podcast isn’t a “special edition.” As you can see from the headline, it’s a “very special edition” of the podcast.
You see, for the first time in 9 years, the Dallas Cowboys are 1-3. Forget the Metroplex, a 1-3 start from Dallas is a calling-all-cars situation on the national media landscape, especially when it happens in the very year that the Cowboys play host to a Super Bowl for the very first time.
So, I turned on the podcast mics and asked of three of my NFL Network compadres this very simple, burning question: What is up with the Dallas Cowboys? And those three colleagues of mine? None other than Jamie Dukes, Hall of Famer Rod Woodson and 3-time champion Dallas Cowboy Daryl “Moose” Johnston.
Now, that’s what I call a very special edition of the podcast.
