Interview with Bobby Carp coming up!!!!!!!!!
You still have time, its not on yet. I'm not that good at those recaps, but i'll do my best if you can't watch!
They took our ESPN News off and replaced it with ESPN Classic
Just said its at 1:37 (eastern of course).
They have already said he has a new hair cut, it will be on in 5 minutes.
that really has to suck man
My local cable company (Cox) took ESPN Classic off and replaced it with the E network.:bang2: :bang2:
I now have Direct TV.
They took ESPN News off of my cable here too and replaced it with Classic.
I'd appreciate a little bit of a recap if someone doesn't mind.
- Hows life been as a Cowboy?
Unique. It's warm in Dallas. Great organization. Coach put me to work down there.
Always watched sportscenter and saw guys bringing him the water, but I never thought I'd be in the waterboy position. Ware said it lasts the entire season, but I thought it was just for camp. During the first practice, he blew the whistle and asked Carp if he knew what to do. Carp replied "yes sir". Trainers have it all ready for him. He's just the delivery boy. Bill is the only one that gets crushed ice in his water.
- Best thing your dad told you about Bill?
Tough, intense guy that will always be on you and you better be able to handle the criticism and respond to the challenges.
- BP said about your dad?
THAT HIS DAD WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER LB THAN HE WOULD!!!! HAHAHA!!! He really likes to try to manipulate people and get the best out of you. He said at the end of camp that his dad was still the best player in their family.
- Email: How much of a role do you think you'll have? How does Dallas fare in the NFC East?
Division is tough. Washington is coming up and Philadelphia is going to rebound. Likes to think he can contribute.
- How much have you seen TO?
Haven't seen him much. It was mainly just rookies at the first mini-camp.
- How much do you talk to Hawk?
We're still work out buddies so we see each other every morning.
- What's the deal with the long hair?
Originated back 2 years ago. The 3 LBs grew it out at camp. Coach had a book with a mention of Tilman and it was in memory of him.
Truly a tremendous athlete. Not too many guys that are 6'5"/230 that can do what he can do. He really improved his accuracy last season. Advice for opponents is to force him to throw short and outside. You have to be very accurate. Thats his biggest weakness.
- How good will Ohio be next year?
I know we have one guy that will be one of the best QBs in college. Troy Smith will be great. He's not a tall guy but he'll make people miss in the pocket and keep is eyes downfield.
- How difficult is Ted Ginn to run down?
When you play against a guy you pick up on his strengths and weaknesses, but I won't disclose those. He'll be a more complete player this year.
- Email: Are you a mavericks fan now?
I've always been a Dirk N. fan. I used to be a Lakers fan (Shaq fan).
- Email: Do you feel any pressure coming to Dallas?
No added pressure, but you look around and see the names on the lockers and those are guys you idolize. Defense has a lot of rising stars so I won't be expected to make a huge impact like AJ will at Green Bay. AJ will have to right the ship there, but I'm just looking forward to seeing where I can fit in and seeing how I can contribute.
Poll at end of interview: How much of TOs contract will he play out?
18% - One year.
36% - Two years.
38% - Three years.
19% - Won't finish first year.
Still has the locks - They lied
* unique feeling being a cowboys
* Strange being a waterboy
* Ware told him that he would be waterboy all year
* Pops told him that BP is tough defense guy and he will be on him.
* Bp told Carp his dad would have been a better LB than FB
* NFCE is tough division and thinks he will have an impact as starter or role player.
* Hasn't seen T>O yet
* Still works out with Hawk everyday and talk on a daily basis
* Long hair is a tribute to Pat Tillman
* Vince Young a tremendous athlete at 6-4, strong and can get away once he gets going.
* Will tell Cowboys teammates to make VY throw deep if he plays vs. us this year. If you don't get him in 5 yards he could go all the way
* OSU has one of the best QBS in TRoy Smith, has everything a team needs.
* Ted Ginn Jr. has weakness that he won't tell about catching him and bringing him down, but he will be more of a complete WR this year.
* Huge fab of Dirk and routing for the MAvs and is a huge Shaq fan.
* NO pressure about being a cowboy, walked into the locker room and saw a lot of pro-bowls and felt comfy , just wants to fit in and play his role.
Great, you make me do something that I suck at. Then you beat me to the punch and your recap is better than mine. Real good friend you are, you could have just told me you would recap.
If BP thinks Rob would have been better as a LB than a FB, why didn't he make him a LB? (And to tell Bobby that his Dad would have made a better LB than Bobby is just a transparent mind-fark.)
Also said that AJ was the 5th pick and he might be more of the guy to come in and right the ship in GB...while BC said that Dallas is a young defense and was really good so he doesn't feel any pressure to make that kind of an impact, but instead to more or less fit in to an up and coming defense.
Thanks guys... I appreciate the recaps.
Sorry. I just type pretty fast so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Watch how fas I can type -
jfkavajkbfvk;jasf noreh;ucgwhqefw - I typed that really fast.
Thanks for the recap, great info. I think the fact he will not give out any weakness in Ginn's game. Being a Buckeye fan, that is great.
