And -- it's coming from -- -- benefits. Welcome to this week's edition of the inside call. Weekend the National Football League and we have some great divisional match up particularly in the NFC. We've got just the group you wanna hear from. In terms of the talent that can bring -- the games here on fox. Got some great divisional matchups particularly in the NFC west. And the NFC east can't think of anybody better talk to about the Michael Strahan. Scott let the NFC west were 500 probably when you can division let's start with respect sisco. Where. -- what is coveted separate those go from about 500 team -- book fair to -- With only two wins if they can win this game given their schedule that that actually make -- It -- it isn't that amazing. That here he would be scared through is if what we have we've been beaten and you have advance to Buford played. I don't remember anything recently that the statement in -- the whip it whip fifth relief it's here they might agree. I think that that go. If it came back. You look they have the reality is that but it all together the right time they blasted the -- They have rated not so great cargo enemy they've they've been in this match. And they quoted at equipment this but advocate a ram I think the program but one team -- they have the ability. Betancourt. Bradford. Though -- have a lot of the -- injury and all that they did pretty well what they have that thing down the right over the great job there motivate the guys. They've. Better. The base. They have they look like one -- -- if you do -- profitability. After -- though they lost that game if he would do believe in. That -- they think they could be if this goes and if they do it days you know I would know that. It. Looked like he had -- Carter. This division I happy that Seattle Arizona. -- about Seattle. Why I don't know that I needed -- -- -- where there were more beat down. That New York Giants team going into the -- a tough place to play. Maybe you've been there before unfortunately I've been there for. How did you come out of it seem like bad -- on the road in the division because you really put that behind. But they've got to be yeah that the that would that be that would. You know. I don't know which one call that nothing we can found here anyway pat that it it. Maybe go to Canada and out of here. Yeah you did say there what what happened to those guys that classic case. Double -- years. Rated if they get they'll say it looked like we did that have been on any level. Nothing I mean we don't want -- -- He always -- though it. But that neither one candidate that they didn't want me go wow you know really well on the -- year in the game like if that guy. They don't realize that you know they really do -- -- -- it. In -- And it's going to get your ability my head at the game -- last week -- -- want to make -- big plays like that. Fourth quarter court time Arizona I mean I've been -- defense. You know cranked up there they're built they're they're play making ability and in Arizona at the very kind of faded and caught up so. I think Arizona simply began to -- of them right now better -- Year ago there have a lot of movement that we had not gotten there a lot of things you believe that it. They'll let it worry you thought about it is that the case you don't have occurred that you don't like bat but they've -- -- -- -- side that you have a lot of great players that -- -- -- well and heck we might see different that -- ninety going flat out bat off. Yeah -- -- it made things. Always the first everything again at it and that got to make that division competitive that'd be definitely doubt that he is. And obviously they're -- you know really the -- These stories that story. -- will be they probably. Look let's talk a little bit about the New York Giants I'm not sure all of my kind of go out here and I can't pick a better got to talk to about it. I'm not sure -- this New York Giants came -- team right now if for no other reason because of the local business they have outside with. Nick Schmidt Manningham. Might not be a better team than what you want -- What appears -- I think get a lot of ways they are sort of what subway I don't think they'll put another way they're really think they are. The one thing if they do have now they have Eli Manning who. Looked so comfortable -- -- -- with a -- -- every company that was sort of our hope for a there. And then as you did you don't want it to play off in the Dallas game I don't really role it was kind of hard to believe people here. What that failed to hit that the right time thankfully did my thing. But now you have -- good to see the real old guy who we thought glimpses. Very. Global event in next -- had a great year. Match here statistically had a great year if every team record year -- on the record wise for a team. But he's not really. You know it'd really comfortable in this it would drop it -- -- you -- No offense built we play it would go out later. Where you put the football you know got to make you wait and he needs to the fact that. -- -- there -- out yeah they you know it's definitely like that this -- You know it's about every way you would miss -- in there they're really -- it yet compare in one. Reviewed but don't ask you anyway compared to defense out when you got one you know beyond we have experiment. Had that experience life. They have from the older -- myself -- here no. I do think that they do you have. Guy with enough experience. Guys yet you know most of gab along their front front or got into one of the -- -- they have. So what Alex did. That you know been -- -- Rolle and grant it. Value added some experience in the back field. There really isn't a need for the -- the fourth in the game experience but it. Have gotten that can't have gotten back can't come up with support to run. And I think right now that guys is they have the currently. Active way -- -- -- quarterback that they could you know. Big effort and it could be what we're back to. Look. Look it over NAFTA studio walk affiliate walks. After from the fan's perspective consider valuable. One here. Is you're part of the Washington Redskins football. And hold Donovan McNabb. Two minute it Shanahan take him out and now you're coming back on the field play Donovan your quarterback. But that would what you watch for a player and could see how difficult. Don't want things with that situation. Me it would be put up a everybody in the they have got and that game or that day. -- -- maybe somebody of it is more. Obviously reality is that was really bad that. Did. You know. Play -- you know play. -- just put him if that's the thing that. You would look to see how that you know it put. I've heard about it yesterday and -- Old that he he wrote it was great that always been you know -- Everything. Market that they use. Everybody will cooperate to rip off so he's always -- deputy you know all week they weren't there. I don't think players or more and watch a good thing -- plea. Deal. Here he didn't walk -- day is all very obvious. Yeah. And -- it -- that crack together and they did fear that the record I think what was. I think Billy can going to beat Washington. Going to be better than it did here on Monday agree that any kind of but -- question with the coach and thank you -- good -- but what he meltdown but it did Billy Kennedy going to win -- and Michael Vick -- kind of game he'd have. That could put walking on -- path will be tough to watch. Yeah. I think fitted -- -- waiting in the game Michael Vick. It otherwise. Great to watch the game. We really really it's just that the guy that Beckett in on our from. And come back from it is seen him each week just got to do it at David take -- -- -- doesn't win I think that's what. As a player you loved having your quarterback that you feel like we always have a -- it's really it was Michael Vick and down you don't hit fifth it was not. -- Donovan right now but I just don't know they're talented all the way around. What -- thanks for you if you're you're still play and your basic -- that. Dynamic player. But he doesn't float belt and hit not thank you collateral to hurt him more elated but you know okay this guy is banged up a little bit. And and best way to get even catch you you go after a little more ferociously that you get after got a bit more ability to little banged up the Expos have felt that way. Court I mean if your -- that are. I know you're able hurt. I'm hitting it well enough on the bill alligator you know the gators -- -- and hearing -- -- -- that event so be it. -- let -- debate could beat you go after that we did is that your -- And I'll be here rest and get Michael Vick you know he likes to run. We maybe get the last few -- let -- In Atlanta and that was prevalent that. -- -- I think they have -- if it. Hit a lot that game. I -- they haven't won it by Antonio Pierce made that -- But other than that they were all legal they were all hard that we made to -- who are there. And I think all the way to restricted him from running as much BC which used to running that we -- a good job of everyone really being aggressive that's being smart. That you you think you have that you better make there play have not figured interior linemen may be good -- so yeah if you run good at about five -- We had the liberty to treatment would have we need to do to get him the other guys that. We had like one time -- -- -- Baltimore pre season game and you're running toward our sideline I thought our daily when it down from behind. And I caught myself as a coach on your quote -- about the only Bible did that. Knew it would end up not being about -- -- couldn't they have just jumped on it just laughed and -- -- would be but Abdullah Michael. Get down get Connecticut wanted to see him go -- perfectly predicted. I didn't wanna see him get hurt that way that think that those concerns me about this obviously -- these that he can't stop -- part of K he's gonna run around so. Always subject but I appreciated the -- could do with him. It's not. Three. Joe Johnson had a great natural last week with the Arizona Cardinals visiting Minnesota Vikings he also has this week's Minnesota viking team. At the Chicago Bears collapsing great inside force about this game. Gary you're a great position having -- -- the Arizona Minnesota Damon now a huge game in the division obviously from Minnesota going. Chicago -- give me what you thought coming out of that huge come from behind win. In Minnesota. You know we made the statement during the broadcast this you know this is this this drive at twelve minutes and -- thirty something seconds. Is gonna be the defining moment this season at ball that or not but right now because they don't work here. Then you look in the two and seven and you know somehow. It was supposed to go nobody on the field. Andy in this -- -- -- now you're you're just outside of one minute that -- like there's no way I mean even with Brett or no way of and I don't know how they hung in there I mean I would I was very very impressed with the entire group. Really with a whole season Orion the defense goes up making stops to get great field position on the front. By the end zone bigger without -- field scored touchdowns the defense himself or green Al. I if if I was. -- -- point I would I'd -- can't do it twice they can get back upfield again. And adequate back -- field so I just think -- -- me more than anything was that it was probably hung in there with everything that happened. We've talked about for awhile now about Minnesota and here through -- last in the league pressure the quarterback back. They hadn't gotten -- -- record this here. They are pretty good pressure. Last week and I. They did big hit and out but yeah remembered up for those came in the game. The last couple drives they got -- six sacks so six sacks coming into the game except for the course of the game. So people could look at it and it will forward with the game on the line I think forward an obvious passing situations one of the things that I think Minnesota -- this. It's gonna come to terms with it you know we need to get the quarterback out with a were sacking him. Burying them if it hits on the quarterback we've got to feel you got. During the course of the first reporters that and I think it's -- Leslie Frazier at the end of the game you know maybe have a little bit more pressure. -- the linebacker level from the secondary level. And not replied edges -- down guys up front to get there but. Arizona was the second worst in particular quarterback that given a second most -- -- for -- this week in Chicago so. They all talk about momentum and you know like we build on what we did at Arizona who got a great chance with the over the Chicago in the -- And but here's -- -- about the report last week it was a pivotal game had it not gone well my return receive. That would do what we've removed it really no different it's not a thing they can't really afford going. And not keep this going -- that that the moment passes. All the drama that has been -- that a school like how has got to be on the plus bat fourth and like what Chicago the same way they'd lose at home to Minnesota. -- that up with that you want your. Review would be war began while I absolutely have to I think Minnesota unfortunately started here has put themselves in a position where it. And every week they've really he really can't afford to have another setback. And you know I've -- they've got the injury problem but you saw how hard they played a lot. It now we have a week ago in New York against the Jets -- play with that emotion. They're just the dangerously. Aaron Rodgers in the group so I don't think Green -- is gonna come back to the fact he's gonna have to do it three day chase them down. So from Minnesota the rest of the year you know they can't afford about it at half of that performance. Chicago I think there's a lot of question but Chicago really a legitimate five and three -- Good look at they've beaten the -- billable one in seven Cowboys who went over the Panthers. Two when they're Lions you know they don't have access season winning super Green Bay it's Green Bay. There are earlier in the year that -- -- big mark you wind up until this point but everything that I'm reading in Chicago is who are we are we really -- -- between. So if Minnesota comes into Chicago and knock them off I think those questions start -- And you wonder how good this season as -- boarded in what you have doubt within your locker room. That series so I I think it just seemed to Houston and humble -- I don't think either team can afford to lose. -- the reader's digest version of the Dallas Cowboys going forward look at your crystal ball locker room the coaching situation the ownership situation. What you see on the next three or four weeks right now -- Well I I hope this CD. A couple of different guys starting lineup. I think if you think you're really want to send a message -- have taken three. Right I think I -- would let him play that's unacceptable today whether it was one way. Or one of a couple of places where the game by the -- the number one week -- -- street clothes. Number two I think you have some other changes. You know those starting on that was -- -- some of the it was here. I think you'll see change in the Colts the Colts it was -- -- -- -- -- use this week it was a it was a worded that you're you're used. I think the practices are going to be to -- more competitive. Going to be a little that would have made ending and I also think it is bigger that a benefit from all or -- -- -- Thank god and thank -- -- coach. Huge game with the Dallas Cowboys visiting the New York Giants. The Giants may be the best team in the NFC. And his traveling soap opera that is the Dallas Cowboys always good to see what's going on there you've got just the people you want covering. What Joe Buck and -- it. You arrived here we are yelling Detroit. Whining leadership we've been breakdown. Football. Jail long hours here to bring -- screeching halt. I guess school I'll start by talking about the elephant in the room -- There -- Phillips have been fired and Jason Garrett is now the head coach. The Dallas Cowboys about that -- force I thought the -- number one yeah that. -- Know my friend. Slam calamity inaugurated as -- that they'll boo -- Oh lord people don't do that anymore. Kids you abandoned like him should be. Aside it's almost. Like that you now that just let it. School I was cool. Well -- so well. -- -- though I would you know. It was those other things turn out. Pretty amazing. That the Cowboys are one start. I noted that obviously very well in fact a number of years. That there's no doubt that he's been carrying. You know a few of the players -- this week in this game. He'll be prepared I just don't know if this team prepared but we'll find out -- but people this week and -- about short there that. You know we got a chance to watch the New York Giants last week against Seattle. Completely dismantle the announcement that are flying at least in this -- -- -- much confidence as anybody I've seen in a long long time -- ten minutes got great players. So this'll be a monumental task. -- -- -- -- in the game late. In the -- yeah attic this story is obviously the Giants but besides story is Jason manager -- and you know you think back to. The couple of the head coaching opportunity -- passed Donny came close to the job here at Saint Louis and now. He's 44 -- the first -- interim coach in Dallas Cowboys history. He's got a team that's clearly underperforming he's on the road with a backup quarterback every talk about walking hands. With just that with the deck stacked against you he's got a lot on his plate and ended for the guys it. They doubted you wanted to be head coach and I think both of us agree will be a good head coach somewhere bud. This for the top one for him to walk him to run out of -- -- Yeah I think what kind of let us to this moment is really. Did you -- to do. Back -- seventieth minute accepting whether it about the job of the ravens' job. And I guess at the end of the day of the decision was made that should rather be -- -- -- Cowboys would be one of those things but in -- -- that happens. Then Wade Phillips wasn't very we're gonna have to be fired and if he got fired and there was a good chance that -- job coordinator. You're going to be viewed as part of the problem and certainly amongst the fan base and probably even -- them out walk around. Jason Garrett is viewed as as part of the problem -- part of the reason why this team has won seven so. There's a there's a lot to overcome there's no doubt about Adam and I think from. From Jason's perspective although you know he would never now just Norwood and the other coach for that matter. But this looks like the situation the words you set yourself up for failure and what it does then that you. As far as your career. Concerned it's great urge you practiced a little bit they'll go on it doesn't work out here we hit it too far out of ourselves we'll go on here on the corner but how what he'd be -- league wide. As a head coach try to -- games that at least the last couple weeks says. And able. They get motivated them and -- -- and I think is that you know here they play the Giants and defense coordinator or you'll lose dealt with this. Very -- situation themselves. But you're going -- Buffalo. So. If we picked the Giants side of it any thought about very fuel and what they've got going defensively. Against Jon Kitna is he's gonna have his work cut out -- at the groove. Huge debt is last week -- on the air there's there's giant right now lookalike. The best team in the ass anyway everybody for the first eight weeks of the season has been. Searching for somebody in the NFC to get excited about it looks like the Giants right now -- in the -- Well there's no doubt in my mind and -- Great football and the big part of that is because the quarterback -- -- as well what he has an Eli Manning and then there they're running the ball. Well they are in the mark Bradshaw. You know we all know that he was such you know explosive player when he has opportunities but. You know -- her ability -- -- still a question mark or halfway through the year he's been outstanding but I would be a little bit concerned. This bars where he's going to be at the end of this season but offensive lineman -- an injury that reshuffle the deck is you know. Last week there were outstanding. And then defensively. You know I think the thing that probably has gone somewhat unnoticed. At least league wide -- It was that defense -- them as good as great and get after the quarterback and and they're -- right now outside he would there's not a lot of things I think to overcome. Outside the blocks and still there's productive as it then and I said before I'll say it again I think. -- more underrated coaches in Italy he was certainly in my opinion they want the opportunity. To the year -- would. -- he's big guys that we've talked about the -- Michael Strahan last week that we can wrap up with a few big guy vivid known as a disciplinarian. He's taking on a team that fired coach. Good guy in the Wade Phillips but I think. At least the perception is that he's more players coach not hard nosed guys. Does it take a disciplinarian these days in the NFL or the you have to go case by case in the league these days to see what's. Quote unquote type -- head -- works is that these days getting guys motivated. Well I think there are different styles but one they had you know I would ask players what is this is required because of players. Are notorious for just him whiners and they bitch about everything whether it's it's tough for the village to blackbird. Milk not very good or whatever that's just what players do it. You know like that thing if you look over the historically been great coaches when you reflect back on those people are there. Donnelly for some people minded disciplinarian. And they there Rutherford -- That's forcing Tom Coughlin spends in the -- errors a couple of different side things always responded well to adversity. This is another example that you treat your players and it. How it's not a broad. You have quite yet. You know that's that's great that's what broadcasters they're -- -- you just. Alongside you are carriers. -- now do you learn from one of the better. Pitchers and in the in the broadcast booths across the other man that being that being that I guess what we do -- now it. Wrap up our time with -- going over the wardrobe I'm going -- more hopeful. Kind of -- underneath. Dark very cute you know. I haven't given it much thought did I thought it is working down. They'll work go. It -- these are got dressed up and they're a little bit bothered but what I like -- -- this weekend that I know -- are aware no I won't wear I would just like if -- and other fans would they're. Are -- that we've got all the eye opener watched the game anyway and maybe maybe at some point. You've been on the flannel have a big dog would you know. I think it is kind of a copier and a -- really sure and that it would fight and -- But -- -- are just so the disabled. That don't normally go but I don't -- afford them they're done they're. In my. -- they're worth their. At all at fox sports. -- -- Powerful. Detroit question mark. I'm -- states and globally when -- on them. -- fair game of the week that would call them. I've -- Or you -- America quarterback at one point. For you Troy. For me you know back Bryant though. That's it for this week's version of the inside call picture and come back and join us next week we will look at the best games. Here on fox.
