It's been a minute since we chatted cause I had a little time off for the summer and I spent a few weeks with the Cowboys in TC. Let's roll!!!!
Has there ever been a Texas Rangers Baseball Game Postponed due aTornado?
don't think so, but I've only been around since 1992.
Hello JJT, any chance that the Rangers put back Ogando in the bullpen?
Nope. There's not any other options right now. Lewis is out for the year after hip surgery and Matt Harrison had a setback after his last rehab start. Ogando is fine. You can do a lot worse than him your 4th starter
Doesnt it seem like the two owners that get the most exposure are from dallas why is that
No idea, but each has titles. Jerry has three and Cuban has one. Wining will get you attention. So does being a maverick, so to speak
Good to have you back JJT. Should the Mavs have taken the red pill and realized they have a better shot at landing one of the trifecta of Wiggins, Randle, and Parker, (then landing a big fish in fa) thus go to Dirk and say we have to blow this thing up and trade you so then they could run out a lineup of Larkin, Ledo, Crowder, Wright, and James. The young guys would show you what they got and put up inflated numbers on a a bad team so maybe you could use them for trade bait down the road or find you have a diamond in the rough, thoughts??? (Boston took the pill and their guys are about the same age or a little older than Dirk, plus they still had a young guy in his prime in Rondo albeit injured.)
That's a hard pill to take because there are no guarantees.Look at how long Kings have been in lottery without making a run. Look how long the Clippers languished. And there's no guarantee the Mavs would get Wiggins. Mavs will be much better team this season, but not good enough to be better than 5th in West.
Is this the year the Cowboys finally realize how to utilize the talented (when on the field...) D Murray? This guy can dominate a game and control the clock. Will B Callahan see what J Garret never did?
Murray has to stay healthy. He hasn't in his first 2 years and that's why he hasn't been used as much he would've liked
Can the boys stick to their plans to run more and any chance they can show some creativity in runs like 49ers -as an old timer I can remember when Boys were often innovative Granted defense needs to far better so boys are not in catch-up mode
I always say the Colts with Manning, Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison, Dallas Clarke and Edgerrin James ran the most simplistic offense of their era. It's about executing - not being innovative
Do you think ESPN will address Mark May's multiple arrests while in college and during his pro career in light of him calling out Johnny Manziel for leaving a camp early??
I wouldn't think so. I have no knowledge of what Mark May did or didn't do in college, but I don't think that has anything to do with Johnny Football. You should probably stop looking for scapegoats. Whatever happens, Johnny Fotball brought it upon himself
With the release of Vickers would the Cowboys be interested in signing Vonta Leach or are they going into the season with no fullback?
DC going with 2 TE look, which means no need for fullback
Hey JJT, what do you think will happen when Matt Harrison comes back later this year?
I don't know that he's coming back this season. I think it has been a long shot from the start. If he did well enough to return to the rotation, Ogando would probably return to the bullpen
If the season started tomorrow what would be your opening day starting offensive line?
Smith, Leary, Frederick, Waters, Free
hi, i would post a question but after several years of asking questions and your question never gets answered, u give up asking
oh well. I answer 50-60 questions a week for 10 months a year - more or less - no idea why your question didn't get answered.
Hi JJ what does your gut sat on the year DeMarco will have
if he plays 14 games, he'll gain 1100 yards and score 8 TDs
Who would be your preseason #1 in college football and why
Bama. Most complete team. Best coach.
I'm not much for the hype that's always surrounded the Cowboys, but Cowherd said in his predictions that they are "Super Bowl capable." Is he crazy?
yep. This team has too many holes to be a champion
What would you judge to be a successful season for the Cowboys, assuming their problems with staying healthy lessen?
win a playoff game
what do you think of that soft ohio state football schedule urban scared of competition or what..gigem
Urban just showed up. Schedule was done a decade ago.
Will Johnny Manziel get suspended?
I don't think so, but this isn't a court of law. NCAA doesn't deal in reasonable doubt
Do you see L. G. Pinkston in a playoff run this season? Dallas High School football. And if not what schools do you see?
I don't pay that close attention to HS football. I like it, and I watch it. I just don't have time to study it and offer keen insight
JJT -- When are the Boys gonna sign Waters? TMAC said he thinks it might happen next week, but the wait is killing me!
After camp most likely.
JJT, as an observer of the interactions fans have with sports stars, what's your take on why we demand such perfection from them off the field? It seems to me that we (I'm generalizing all sports fans here, but would also include a large contingent of the sports media) view ballplayers as either all-good, or all-bad. And that when we find them to be flawed in some way, as all humans are, we burn them at the stake.
Most fans are so emotionally wrapped up in their team they lose all their perspective. It's the reason why some think Tony Romo should spend a portion of every day working on his game. Everyone takes a vacation or a mental health day
Does Jason Witten get a running mate at TE this year to help lighten the load?
It better be Hanna or Escobar. Cowboys going to TE look this year, so those guys will be key
U can always find me on Twitter at @JJT_ESPNDallas
first off I appreciate your twitter responses - do we have anything to worry about Mo's injury? will he practice today? thoughts?
no structural damage. It should just be matter of time before he returns. There's been no MRI. It's just sore.
What is going on with this Durant v Sims competition... is Sims playing that well or does Durant signing look like a bust?
I still don't think it's much of a competition. Sims has always been a weakside linebacker, which means he never had to fight through much traffic. Durant has been a starter and is used to playing on strong side against TEs and tackles.
JJT great work and thank you for always spitting the truth... it realy is refreshing..After u seen training camp and 2 preseason games u think this defense has turned the corner and can be the dominant force to lean on come the season??
DC have a lot of high end talent and virtually no proven depth. Health is important. Starters have only played a series or 2. Still too early to tell. If they have health, they will be good.
Who is less expendable, Albright, Sims, Hayden?
Come on bro. None of those dudes matter all that much.
Year after year, this team takes penalties on offense that kill drives, especially in the red zone. What can this team do to cut down on those mistakes? Is it discipline?
Seriously, it takes better, smarter more disciplined players.
What do you think Terrance Williams will do for the Cowboys this season?
If he caught 30 balls for 475 yards and 3 TDs, it will have been a good year
If the Cowboys D stays healthy do you see them being a top 3 defense in the NFL?
nope. They're not that good. Defensive line is a mess.
Does DeMarco Murray need to be on the field at least 12 games this year, with producitve numbers, to get a second contract from the Cowboys?
Jerruh had to know his OG situation wasn't good. Why didn't he address it in the draft or free agency? What's his solution?
You can't fix every issue in the draft. The problem isn't that JJ didn't address it. The problem is Livings, Leary, Bernadeau, Kowalski have all been hurt in TC
This is purely opinion, but where do you see the Rangers finishing he season: winning the division, wild card, or missing the playoffs?
Garza and Rios should take them to title, but it's going to be tough. Best combo of rotation and BP in AL
Why do you think the Cowboys are so scared to start youth on the O-line and instead keep turning to veterans that are past their prime?
Maybe they spent all offseason hoping Arkin and Kowalski would improve and when they got to TC they realized they haven't improved enough, so they need to get some help
What were the Cowboys ranked last season in defensive takeaways?
near the bottom with 16 - eight fumbles, eight interceptions
Do you think if the Cowboys defense doesn't lose any major stars, that they will be able to be a top 10 defense?
That's a huge IF. THe NFL is about surviving penalties - not hoping you don't get any. SO I'd have to say no.
Do the Cowboys do anything to prevent penalties? I haven't seen JTTresearchdept numbers on penalties, but they are drive killers and seem to happen at the most inopportune time. Do they fine, chastise, make them run anything?
ultimately, the players must concentrate more. All the other stuff is just for show.
What do you think is in store for Texas tech this season under Kingsbury? There is a lot of excitement in Lubbock these days.
They're always going to be a 7-5, 9-3 kind of team depending on whether they have star like Crabtree every 5-6 years. Kingsbury just chilling until they bring him back to A&M
I'm being serious. I had to google Travis Johnson. Who cares what he had to say?
Good to have our first chat in awhile. Now that football season is here, we'll do it every Tuesday from 12-1. Be blessed and have a great day.
