The sports discussion on Friday morning at 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, TX was all about the exciting opening game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys, which was decided in the last few seconds by a field goal.
“The ratings [for this game] will be stupid, “said Shan Sharriff, Shan & RJ co-host on 105.3 The Fan.” Can’t wait to see them. “
While the Cowboys are widely known as “America’s Team,” both radio hosts know the team is undoubtedly ridiculed across the country for their last-minute defeat. They believe the plot should focus on the return of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who had not played an NFL game for 11 months after suffering a complicated fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in the fifth week of last season had drawn.
“Those first ‘fake’ shows … barely said boo about Dak Prescott showing the world on a national stage that he was damn close to the elite,” said RJ Choppy, the other co-host of Morning Drive Program. “All they talk about is [if] Ezekiel Elliott is done. That’s not the story. It’s that No. 4 put her on the table and said, ‘I am him’. “
“The haters will say [the Cowboys] invent[ed] a new way to get an ‘L’, ”he continued. “Stephen A. will tell Michael Irvin that on Monday.”
The lengthy discussion of the game ended with Choppy making a request to the television networks that will be covering the NFL this season for more stats to be shared with viewers during the game. Much like statcasts measuring how fast fields are thrown in Major League Baseball, Choppy is curious about how quickly the quarterbacks toss the football at their receivers.
“I would love if the NFL, or whoever those TV stations are, put a radar gun out there,” Choppy said. “I want to see how fast these guys throw.”
