‘They’ll be a real, real mess to deal with’: Cowboys’ Jerry Jones offers scouting report on 49ers, has no concerns over opposing fans

Jan 11, 2022 at 10:22 AM--

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams.

On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup. Although, he also acknowledged the size of his stadium while bragging about his team's attendance numbers, which could make it easier for opposing fans to attend.

"I welcome it," Jones said. "I think it's a great atmosphere. You'd have to really be missing the sensitivity that's around the Cowboys right now to think that, in my mind, that we're going to have any concern, really, over the [opposing fans]. It will be a Cowboys home game. There's no question about it. A home playoff game, and it will be roaring."

Jones went on to talk about the game itself, offering a scouting report on the visiting 49ers.

"I think they're very physical, and distinguishably so," Jones said (h/t to Jon Machota of The Athletic). "They've got a really stout defensive line. They're really good in their offensive line. They seem to have some pretty good flexibility there, position flex. They've moved them around a tad. But more importantly than anything, they use it on both sides of the ball, the physical part of it. So, this team is about that.

"They're very confident. They've won some big games. They've won it against some good teams. They play in a tough division over there. The playoffs just demonstrated that completely with the fact that three out of the four teams in the division [made it], and Seattle was no slouch. They come tested. They come playoff-ready. They'll be tough."

Jones holds a great deal of respect for the 49ers organization and its head coach. There will be no looking past Sunday's game with San Francisco looking like a dangerous opponent.

"I have such respect for Coach Shanahan," Jones said. "I had respect for his dad (Mike Shanahan). He obviously comes with the pedigree of having grown up in it, as well as having had success. And you've got to respect that. They've got a fine organization. And they've been to the Super Bowl since we have, obviously, and have competed here these last two or three years at a higher level than we have.

"So, we've got to factor all that in. They'll be a real, real mess to deal with out here Sunday."

Jerry Rice says Trey Lance 'has all the tools' to succeed with 49ers

Chris Simms lacks confidence in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. The NBC Sports analyst recently stated that he wouldn't have drafted the player had the decision been his to make. "I see the potential. I get it," Simms recently said on his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned. "I'm just not sure it's going to all come together." Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice is less pessimistic about the second-year quarterback's future. The 49ers legend sat down with Lance and discussed the 22-year-old's potential to be great and lead the Bay Area team to success. "I knew Trey was going to be special from the first day I talked to him," Rice said during an interview for Boardroom (h/t

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about

Rapoport on the Deebo Samuel, 49ers situation: 'I think they can get it settled'

On Monday, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel would not attend the team's organized team activities, which start today. The wideout showing up would have gone a long way in the team's efforts to mend its relationship with the do-it-all star player, even if Samuel didn't participate in on-field activities. At least, that is what Rapoport expressed during a Monday interview on The Pat McAfee Show. That doesn't mean Rapoport feels that situation is impossible to resolve. In fact, the NFL insider feels Samuel does eventually return to the 49ers, which wasn't a certainty in April when news broke that the wideout had
