Sometimes a man's got to beg. To put a man cave in the basement. To go out to the club with friends yet return home to a harmonious situation between man and wife. And in Dallas Cowboys Hall-of-Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin's case, for a big-time receiver to add to the roster of his former team, he revealed on the Shan & RJ show on 105.3 The Fan on Wednesday. "You need Amari (Cooper) to get back,'' Irvin, the former Cowboys all-pro said.

"Unless you want to go pick up Antonio Brown until (Cooper) gets back. What do you guys think about that?" Irvin is willing to accept help from wherever it may come, including from Brown, who is currently under investigation by the NFL for multiple infractions, including two counts of sexual assault and threatening an alleged victim. "Where we find help, I don't care," Irvin said. "I don't care about media relations or a public relations nightmare. Maybe, we should just go pick him up for a week or two.'' Irvin realizes how unlikely this all is, yet a man can't help but dream. "I'm not gonna lie: Desperation makes you think about a lot of things,'' Irvin said. "We ain't got no time to sit up riding the high horse, like we're too good for this and we're too good for that. We need some H-E-L-P right now! Real help!''

The absence of DeSean Jackson, who has been out since Week 2, has had a bigger impact on the passing game than anybody could've imagined. Without Jackson, the biggest deep threat has been RB Miles Sanders, who has five 30-plus-yard catches. TE Zach Ertz's catch rate has dropped from 74.3 last year, when he had 116 receptions, to 61.1 this year. WR Alshon Jeffery is averaging a career-low 9.0 yards per reception. Wentz has the league's fifth-highest third-down passer rating (106.9). Five of his 12 TD passes have been on third down.
