After the pleasantries, the guys catch up on all the latest injuries news and notes surrounding the Cowboys roster. Here's the final Rams-at-Cowboys injury report ...

After that, Landon and John dive into their review of what’s wrong with the Cowboys team. Landon discusses how execution is killing the defense and John piggybacks off that by lamenting Dallas’ tackling issues. The guys discuss why a healthy and effective Leighton Vander Esch is missed.

As far as the offense, John talks about Dak Prescott’s slight regression in recent weeks and Landon breaks down how mental lapses and poor situational play have stunted the offense in recent weeks. The guys also discuss the issues with the wide receivers, as they take a look at how injuries are affecting Amari Cooper. (Worth noting: A source tells this week that Cooper is "fully healthy'' - but that doesn't eliminate concerns that he might blow a tire in-game on Sunday.)

The guys also make sure to preview this Sunday visit from Rams. John discusses why he thinks the Rams should be favored to win while Landon breaks down how meaningless the game is in regards to the playoff picture.

To end the show, the guys give some of their favorite potential head coaching candidates (We've got Jerry Jones' thoughts on college coaches here) while John gives one reason for the Cowboys to be optimistic.

The “Best Coast Boys” podcast will return next week to review the Cowboys’s performance against the Los Angeles Rams. Join us!

Stop the run. cover the middle. DBs always chasing receivers from behind. Defense sucks the same way they did against the Rams last year and opposing coaches see the Cowgirls have not fixed it. Where is the Richard genius? The Gimpy old DC lost his mojo.
