"Required. Content varies by package. I need more creativity from Kelly Moore. We saw CD lamb we match ups. We saw markets man, not drop win they had sold over the middle of the field. We saw all of these guys that we knew that were coming back that was gonna add juice to this offense produce Michael Gallup back of the end zone. Yeah, Marcus, I'd like to see more creativity, but I'd also like to see more consistency from dak Prescott. Because while he did make some wow throws last night, he also made some love throws that a lot of them tend to happen when defenses are giving him those shell look looks and he's trying to force the ball downfield instead of taking what's available to him underneath. Something that's concerned me watching deck ever since he's come back from that calf injury is the lack of production on the ground and it doesn't have to be a lot. But when defense, especially in New Orleans in particular, when they play man and turn their backs on him, those rush lanes were there last night and he was passing them over the last three games. He has zero total rushing yards. And look, dak prescot we don't need him to have more than 20 or 30 a game. But when those first downs are there and he's not taking them, that is taking away an element of what used to be an incredibly dynamic offense. I mean, absolutely. I mean, we're not asking him to be Jamil Holloway. We're not saying be Tony rice. We're not saying be Tommy Frazier. But we are saying is use your legs to create for the Dallas Cowboys. And he hasn't done that over the last three games and even without being able to do that. This offense is just as explosive as it was when the season started. And I don't know if it's the injury. I don't know if it's fear. Whatever it is, dak isn't playing at that same MVP level that he was at the beginning of the season. And that was the reason we were talking as a Super Bowl caliber football team. So let's see can they get back to that and connect Prescott, get back to who he was. How big of a challenge? Could this Broncos defense be from the chiefs here? I think it's a big one, feel, because while the vibes are good and Kansas City right now, with the win streak, the offense really hasn't been playing fantastically. They beat the packers and the Giants barely. They beat the Raiders who really just played cover three and satisfied their desires and against the cowboys. It was the defense that won the game. Defense game plan for the Broncos who were unlikely to have Melvin Gordon on Sunday Night. When you think of the best of the best in sports journalism, who do you think of?

First I want to say ain't it amazing when you're damn offense don't have a thousand turnovers, your defense can look somewhat open. Number two for me is when you when you look at the Kansas City Chiefs defense, they run blitz the Dallas Cowboys and got them away and made them one dimensional. I think they need to do the same thing. Yeah, you know, with Marcus still having nightmares of Chris Jones like he's Freddy Krueger. I want to put more pressure on this defense. You need to go out and dominate the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos have talented guys. Like, let's not sit here and talk about these skill players like they can't go. Yeah. It sounds ridiculous to say because it's one of the most fundamental parts of football, but you better tackle against javonte Williams.

Which match up between the bangles off into the Chargers defense. Actually are you most interested in? Yeah, well look, everyone's going to make this about the quarterback. And I get it. I love bosie quarterbacks. And I'm excited to watch them play. But the Chargers run defense ranks 32nd in DVO way this year. And Joe Mixon, who we talked about on today. He is looking at this matchup, guys, and he is. He is ready to go. Because this. Outside zone run game is a problem. And we all know what it's going to take for the Chargers. Joey Bosa and each other no suit. You got to set the edge. Also, while being mindful of the fact that Joe burrow can boot out of those looks on the backside, so not only get the second edge against the run. I realize this is very scary. But you gotta also be mindful of burrow. It is a challenge for the Chargers. A defense that has been challenged, stop running backs all year. Listen, man, just I wish we could end the day of chill on that. But I'm a give my analysis. That's what the play in the is for the show. Okay, listen, this is about other weapons as well.

"Normally you'd see Cincinnati playing in the 1 o'clock window at home. So you don't have the body clock concern next week for the niners as they play the bangles. I think that is going to be one of the games of the weekend in week 14. And we'll see if the niners can stay focused against now with three and 8 Seattle team. Something that we haven't said in quite some time if they can stay focused for that game instead of looking at the Cincinnati who would have thought that that would have been a scenario that would have been possible heading into the season. The Seahawks, by the way, signing Adrian Peterson heading into this game, which that's an interesting decision. I had a really banged up running back department. You have Alex Collins and Rashad penny questionable for this game. And of course they had been dealing with Chris Carson being out for the rest of the year. So we'll see if Adrian Peterson can give them the pump in the running game that they have been looking for. But I don't feel particularly high on that move or anything that the Seahawks are doing right now. Two more games to get to here on the GBI show starting with Sunday Night football. Broncos 9 and a half point dogs going to Kansas City to take on the chiefs total 47 and a half. This game was not supposed to be the Sunday Night football game originally. That was supposed to be the aforementioned niners Seahawks game, but the Seahawks thinking combined with the Broncos being pretty good this year kind of flipped those and made this the Sunday Night football matchup with the flex scheduling that and we see enjoys and you know this is a game that it's going to determine first place in the AFC west. The Kansas City Chiefs are game up on the rest of the division. Kansas City 7 and four, everybody else is 6 and 5. And it's a game where the Broncos are looking to turn around one of the biggest losing streaks against a single opponent in the NFL. They have lost 11 straight games to the Kansas City Chiefs dating back to 2015. They are looking to avoid a 12th straight defeat at the hands of the chiefs. Of course, one of the big stories from rebelling perspective is this is the game that everybody always looks for when it comes to an Andy Reid coach team. This is the chiefs coming off the biweek. Andy Reid historically has done very well with his teams the week after the bye week. But here's the thing. Every team is different. And every game is different. You may notice on the GBI show, I don't sit there and give you trends of over the last 14 years, this team is 14 and one against the spread in this particular situation because those trends don't tell you enough about the teams that are playing now. Who were the quarterbacks of those teams 14 years ago? Was everybody healthy? 14 years ago. Yeah, have to take those goofy trends with a massive grain of salt. I'm not saying that they're useless. Some of them might be useful. Some of them could help sometimes. But you have to take them with a huge grain of salt. And I think that the Andy Reid biweek trend is certainly one of those. He's coached. He's coached in multiple places during that time period. He's had a ton of different quarterbacks. Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes are very different football players. One of them can throw laser beams to the moon with a football. One of them couldn't throw the ball further than ten yards down the field. They're different guys. And that is why I think that the Broncos would be the play here. And the market is kind of agreed so far. This is a double digit point spread earlier in the week around ten. It has come down a shade to 9 and a half. I think we see continue to shrink closer to kick-off. And it's a game where, look, I'm not saying that the Broncos are the better team here by any stretch of the imagination. But I think that you look at the games that Kansas City have played recently, right? They've played well defensively against Jordan love in the packers. They shut down dak Prescott in the cowboys. They played nice defensive performances, but they haven't been great offensively in those games either. Three of their last four games, they failed to break 21 points. They scored 20 against the Giants. They only needed 13 to beat the packers. And then what are they 19 to 9 against the cowboys? They haven't been, you know, throwing the ball around at will like we're used to seeing with them. If a team like the Broncos can put up a couple of touchdowns, get close to 20 points. They could easily cover this number. They could win the game outright. I lead toward the Denver Broncos in this game because again, I think that you'll look at the results. You look at the records of these teams and you look at the reputation of the chiefs and everything points towards, oh yeah, they're going to crush the Bronco. But you provide a little context and the way that the chiefs have been winning over this four game winning streak. Not quite as impressive as you might think and I think that is certainly worth keeping an eye on in this contest. By the way, Denver better ATS this season than the chiefs chiefs four and 7 against the spread on the year, whereas Denver is 6 and 5. And even if you take out that easy stretch at the beginning of the season, Denver has been just about the same in terms of their win percentage as the chiefs against the spread on the year. I think there's too many points. I think it was closer to 7. I think, okay, yeah, the chiefs would be the move. But at this number, I think Denver's the way to go on Sunday Night football. Finally, our final week 13 preview of this NFL season, Monday Night Football, and this in my opinion, the game of the week in the NFL. Monday Night Football, patriots, bills, New England. Two and a half point dogs on the road heading up to Orchard park. It is going to be lit. I can only imagine how great that tailgate is going to be outside the parking lot of whatever the bill of stadium is called now. It's at like 14 different names over the last two years. But that tailgate is going to be legendary for a Monday night game against the Patriots. When the bills actually have a chance to win. Total for the game, by the way, 43. And, you know, I say that they actually have a chance to win because there was a recent Monday Night Football game..

"McCoy again this week, but I think it's beneficial to wait and see. And if it gets confirmed that Kyler Murray's gonna play in the line balloons for the Cardinals, you know what? You know, you just sit it out and say, okay, I didn't get the best number I can move on. That's kind of up to you how you want to play that strategically. But again, the quarterback situation extremely important. Also extremely important to keep hicks questionable for the bears this week as is called commit, but that defensive line without Khalil Mack, if Kyle Murray's back, that could be a rough situation. However, I will say to be completely fair, you also have to remember, right? We have seen some quarterbacks come back from injury and look real rusty, right? Russell Wilson has not looked like himself after his finger injury. We've seen dak Prescott come back from an ankle injury. And he has not looked like himself. Kyler Murray now, trying to come back from the same type of thing, is he going to look like himself? There's no guarantee that's going to be the case. If he is playing, I like the 7 and a half with the Cardinals, but I do think that it is worth at least finding out what you're going to be getting at quarterback before you lock this one in. At least you know going in not to expect a ton offensively from the Chicago Bears, no matter who is playing at quarterback for four Arizona. You also have to remember Arizona is unbelievable on the road this season. They are 6 and zero on the road this season. They are a team that certainly capable of going out there. And you have to remember, they've also they've won games without their starting quarterback on the road. They have won a game without their coach on the road in Cleveland earlier this season. So it's not as if they are not used to handling adverse situations on the road, just something to keep in mind before you lock this game in. Next up, our final game before we get to halftime, here on the program, chargers, bangles, chargers, three point underdogs heading into this game total 50 and a half. Of course, last week, the Chargers losing on the road to the Denver Broncos, the bangles, meanwhile, beating up on the Pittsburgh Steelers on the 40 burger on a division rival, which is certainly impressive. And this is a game where, you know, you're kind of wondering which of these two young quarterbacks, whether it's borough or Herbert is really going to step up and make the plays needed to win this game. You know, for me, I would lean towards Cincinnati here, being at home is certainly a benefit in this game, but I just think that the play of the bangles offensively has been more consistent throughout this season. I Herbert has a bright future ahead of him. I think both of these quarterbacks do even though I was not high on burrow to say the least when he came out of LSU. But I just think that he has lacked sort of the consistently high level play that borough has brought for much of the season. I also think that, man, Joe Mixon and running back to this Bengals team has now that he's kind of healthy and he's playing consistently. It has just been a breath of fresh air for this team. They now have a really multi dimensional offensive attack. And the Chargers have that at times with echo, but again, I just think it's inconsistent. I think that the consistency of the bangles is going to win the day here. And that's a sentence that I never thought. My entire life that I would ever utter that the consistency of the Cincinnati Bengals would be what helped them through any situation. But that's kind of where we are this season, man. Offensively, they have been very strong and I think that that continues here on Sunday against the charges. So that is the first half. We've reached halftime..

"Call one eight hundred gambler so as much as we can say here that the the offense hung the defense out to dry. They certainly did make their own mistakes. We need to acknowledge. And discuss. And i think one of the big ones here that you guys really wanna talk about is those inefficiencies on third and fourth downs because there are a lot of times especially early on in the game where it felt. The defense was doing a really good job. They were making good plays. It was creating advantageous situations for the defense. And then before you know it teddy bridgewater find somebody for a first down on a passing play on third or fourth down and that even happened in the red zone for a touchdown to albert. Oh i'm not gonna try to pronounce his last name. But there were a lot of instances where it looked like. The defense had the broncos offense pinned and they made a mistake. That is something that really does. Need to be corrected coming into next week against the washington. Football team really needs to get corrected. Member this entire offseason. We spoke about how patrick graham is going to have the personnel to run man coverage. They added a dory jackson era. Robinson isn't there. But the addition of dory jackson over someone like is again. Item is a significant upgrade in terms of your defenses ability to ron man coverage. Well that did not necessarily materialize against the denver broncos. It seemed like the offense for the broncos bridgewater shurmur and these receivers they were so instinct with each other. The rhythm and the timing. The execution was just way too much for the giants man coverage ability because the giants. I mean they ran a lot of man. They run a lot of press man. It didn't necessarily matter because right when bridgewater would hit that back foot. The receiver would be turning into his break whether that be a hook whether that be a ninety degree cut whether that be a forty five degree cut it was enough separation bridgewater to find the receiver. Just seem like teddy was just sling it out. There in the quick game for broncos was working incredibly well against the giants man covered and then when they transition to a more zone based approach avoids in the zone bridgewater and the receivers were able to find them. It wasn't wasn't a great look for for a unit that we expect a lot from. I mean if you look at some of these stats. Just how the how the denver broncos we're able to just pick apart players like james bradberry bradberry targeted seven times. The allowed six receptions for sixty five yards and a touchdown jerry. Judy get opened several times courtroom sutton using his big frame against james bradbury bradberry line in the slot. We saw him a line on the boundary. Didn't necessarily matter in the safeties against these tight ends also was another mismatch that was exploited by denver. So i mean it's back to the drawing board for this team. People complain about the edge and how they weren't able to create pressure. But how can they create pressure when the secondary wasn't holding up their end of the bargain and this is a secondary that we'd expect to be pretty darn solid and they just did not show up in this game yet. Really the secondary is the. It's supposed to be the strength of the giants defense now. Yes a up. Until melvin gordon. Had that seventy are touchdown run. The giants run defense was pretty solid. They had a few plays where it was almost a a shoestring tackle to prevent a bigger gain. But against melvin gordon Williams you take what you can get but once they got tired. That was when the run defense book broke down in a big reason. Why they got tired is because the past defense was breaking down just about every drive. The game went into halftime with denver. Up ten seven but it really was pretty fortunate for the giants that it was only ten to seven. There was the one play where Honestly i was just sitting in my chair cracking up at it when teddy bridgewater is rolling out and tim. Patrick is breaking. Open down the field complete coverage breakdown on the back end. And the only reason it wasn't either a big gain or a potential touchdown was darnay homes his helmet and it would in the first half. It was things like that where the giants defense would just not be able to get off the field. You'd have these breakdowns in the coverage. Either the broncos would have just too many passing options for the giants to effectively cover all of them and they'd be able to find the voids in the zone coverage or yet they're timing would just be too good for the giants man coverage to disrupt and they would be able to do just enough to stay on schedule and then be able to find an open man somewhere down the field to convert a third down or occasionally a fourth down. It's it wasn't it was a very inefficient effort. When you look at final stats. It doesn't look as bad as it actually was. It's it's pretty alarming to see all those third longs in those fourth bounds. End up being converted credit to the broncos coaching staff for being aggressive. It really worked out for them. Richest kinda goes to show the confidence that they have. Teddy bridgewater pat shurmur. Ns offense to be effective in the most important situations and ended up a burning the giants. I guess you could say in the end for for sure and it's just. It was a disappointing affair. A lot of had a lot of good expectations for the giants defense. And it didn't didn't happen in week. One just didn't happen and it could have been a whole lot. Worse of logan ryan. Doesn't that take away. Credit to logan ryan for that play if cage. A hamblur doesn't drop a wide open touchdown blown coverage of we didn't see a lot last year but that was blown coverage so as a lot of uncharacteristic things that we ended up seeing from the giants defense week one yet and that does kind of go back to when we were previewing this game. We ask the question. Which quarterback would you have rather the broncos ride with drew lock with his athleticism just massive arm talent or teddy bridgewater. And you know. I think we all said that for the giants. Bridgewater was the worst option. Just because of how. How much of a veteran he is. How accurate efficient he can be. And that is what we saw nothing. The giants did really fazed him. They weren't able to get in his head. They weren't able to rattle him they weren't really ever able to confuse him with their coverage rotations. Like we saw happen quite a bit last year and that i think really was the difference in this game. Yeah the the broncos had a quarterback who i think he made one bad throw all game long and that was an under throw on. I believe it was Alberto who had gotten a step down the sideline and bridgewater hit the defender in the back between the numbers. And i think that was the only poor throw. I saw him make the other thing to just wrap up with a another final point on the issues that we saw from this defense. We were talking about before the show. And i even kind of highlighted that one touchdown player albert caught that touchdown on third goal. Was it a fourth goal. Or is it their goal. So forth down it was fourth and one they. They weren't quite. They weren't quite tied ten yards from the goal regard for at nine eleven. Right regardless that touchdown that albert. Oh had i think highlighted some of the issues that the giants had covering the broncos tight ends and you can point to the fact that shurmur did a good job of exploiting that but like what are your thoughts on some of the issues saw tight ends being covered by the giant safeties. Aaron man coverage djibril peppers being dropped down into the box to to man up on noah albert. Alberto just seem like that timing of bridgewater was was too precise for the coverage of the giants in man coverage..
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley Questionable to Play vs. Denver Broncos
"Saquon. Barkley is listed as questionable after practicing all week. But i think really laura what they're saying to us is we have to list them on the injury report. The we expect saquon barkley to play on sunday against the denver broncos. I do not expect him however to be his normal one hundred percent workload self. The giants are being smart with him as they have all off season
"denver broncos" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Down at the end of the game a big rushing. Play like the one we saw. Melvin gordon is a perfect example of them just being worn down for being on the field for thirty five minutes compared to the giants twenty four minutes. But i i hate to say this. And i am not trying to be overly negative but it just for me. It feels like we're watching a game from last season In the first few weeks of the air yeah. It really did feel familiar. Yeah there were some bright spots to be seen some some positives to be taken from it. Odd We'll get to it. But i'd say sterling shepherd and kennedy golladay to the biggest positives but then they were just so much sloppy. Play the defense breaking at just the wrong time The offense just never being able to find any traction at all end just some really terrible penalties exactly when they didn't need them and it was just really a lot of the same things we saw from last year in the score for b. super weird because like twenty seven to thirteen doesn't really feel indicative of how close this game was at halftime. And how closest game was in the first quarter and i think that that lead obviously expands with that. Seventy yard rushing touchdown. Melvin gordon had but this game was pretty close and it played out the way that we expected it to play out was which was along the lines of a close fought defensive battle and then whoever basically can break off one big play or dominate the time of possession. Which was the denver broncos going to win this football game yet. Denver did both and the time of possession going into the fourth quarter was just absolutely lopsided at that point. They had the ball thirty minutes to fifteen minutes yet. They possess the ball for twice as long as the giants had through the first three quarters. Yet that is that is just tough to beat when the opposing offense is basically suffocating. Your own offense or conversely your defense just cannot get off field yet. The giants has to do a good job of keeping things close yet. The broncos got in red zone. They were knocking on the door. The onto the red zone. They're knocking on the door of the end zone. Four times in the first half Only managed come away with ten points. At the logan ryan forced fumble. The giants head are sorry. Yeah they manage to hold them to a field goal on that first down on that first attempt so the defense did what it needed to do to start the game but when they're on the field just that long in eighty degree heat they're going to get tired and that's basically what happened. Yeah and one of the ways that they were able to basically wear them. Down is just effectively using the run game and i point to the opposite side of things for the giants run game. They did not do an effective job whatsoever. In establishing the run and then also creating chunk plays with the ron and we know that this this giants team is just not going to have success unless they can pick up a few good chunk plays or at least have better than three yards per carry the only rushed for sixty yards in this game in the leading rusher in it was daniel jones who goes six for twenty seven. That is very reminiscent of what we've seen in the past with daniel jones 'em this giants offense where they completely bottle up saquon barkley and as a result it leads to thirty seven passing attempts and some mistakes because daniel jones is trying to do too much. I also want to pinpoint and talk about here for a sec chris. It felt like. And i don't think this is to out of pocket for anybody who's tuning into this live or r- afterwards. I think that saquon barkley was very timid in this game. I don't think that he was playing the same way that we've seen him play when he was previously before the the acl injury. I'm not saying that. He's he's damaged goods and that he's not fully repaired. I think his knees completely fine. But i feel as though he had limited time to get ready to be in football shape and be ready to take on a full load of carries and touches so they gave him some limited action. They saw that he wasn't picking up a lot of yards and just over. I felt like he. He looked like he wasn't really ready to get hit. I'm not giving him a hard time. Because it's it is very very hard to come back from an acl and be fully ready to go. It is one of the most difficult injuries to recover from but it was pretty clear that the run game was just not going to get established against the team. That has a fairly good defensive front. When saquon just was not really mentally prepared. It might take him four to six weeks until he's back to normal of course i'll probably say that and he'll rush for two hundred yards next game but it probably gonna take some time. Yeah you know that is one of the things that people are always a little slow to remember with significant injuries. Like that is. The last bit to recover is between the years. You have to get almost an unconscious confidence in your body that you are not going to break. We were talking just before the end of the game. And i mentioned you bhagat so endzone views of barclay yell from him behind and i noticed when he was trying to cut. If you think back to even before the ankle injury a couple years ago he would drop down and he would almost be squatting on the ground and then exploded in a different direction yet today. He was not lowering his hips when he went to cut yet. He wasn't running behind his.

"There's just so many questions heading into this game on the implementation of these new offense of weapons of the giants have yet like how many titans are the giants even going to have available. We've got rudolph coming back from the foot injury. He seems like he's going to be available. Active he could be there leading tight end. Cadence smith popped up on the injury report this week. We know evan. Ingram is dealing with a calf. He was a long shot to play. I'm not counting on him. Suiting up i think the giants might be targeting next week against washington you know. Have him available for the divisional match up there against this secondary. I think that could be another reason. Why the giants look to lean on their running game and maybe in the passing game. Go to quick pass to the running back. Maybe try to attack the two linebackers. They have their josie jewel end a barren browning the rookie yet. That could be really the only exploitable or easily explainable weakness. In this broncos defense overall though this is going to be a really really well coached group and It it's just a defensive minded team because vic fangio so they'll that's one thing that you just immediately have to factor in. Is that the priority on this roster seems to have been since fangio took over is defense. So they're going to be a strong team. I have an interesting question oppose guys before we wrap with the different hypothetical. But which do you guys think has the better matchup. The giants receivers against the broncos secondary or the broncos receivers against the giants secondary. I'm going to just say with into the context of the preseason. The overall health of the units. In everything i would say. The broncos receivers have a have the bit better matchup against the giant secondary got dory jackson coming off the ankle injury. The broncos receivers. They're starting receiver's got more or a lot more work in the preseason. So they might. You've more ready to start quickly and the giants kenny. Golladay didn't get a whole lot of work. Canarias tony He didn't hardly get any work this summer. So it's basically sterling shepherd and dairy sleekness guys who had who had the most work the most experienced the most the most recent football also say and then you've got that rebuilt secondary. There's not a whole lot of tape on these guys going together. There is some tape on the giants secondary. So i don't think either. Receiving core is going to have it easy but the broncos receivers might have it a Just a fraction less hard. Yeah i would. I tend to agree with everything you just said. Chris i mean just because you have a lot of. I don't wanna say uncertainty with the giants Coming back from injuries but just a lot of guys missed assault on a time whereas it seems like other than no offense did tight end. for the broncos. The skill position players for the broncos have been pretty healthy through training camp fans looking like he's going to play just dealing with a lower body injury at the moment. So i'm going to have to say that and that's not a referendum whatsoever on the giants who is still remain high on or or the giants receivers for that matter or the giants receivers exactly within the context of this game. That's how that's how things shake out. At least my is also wondering how pat shurmur wants to utilize jerry. Judy because you lined up about a third of the slot snaps or he mind about third of his snaps in the slot last year. And that's a. That's something that i can see them trying to exploit its darnay. Homes continues to kind of struggle a little bit which could lead to. Julian love for placing dr name homes. The chess match game is going to be interesting. Also wonder how shurmur is gonna use guys like caja handler. Who really explosives smaller type of player mean you have tim patrick i know his name is all that exciting but it just seems like that guy produces every time he gets on the field and no one really ever talks about them so then they got. They got a plethora weapons over there. That's true know bringing jerry judy up as a slot you know. We saw dallas with cd. Lamb him yep basically bursting onto the scene as a slot receiver. I don't think anybody really looked at him as a slot receiver in the draft year. So that i think is something to keep an eye on. Especially as we're seeing teams moving their best receivers into the slot. You even mike evans. With the buccaneers was getting snaps in the slot last year. That's just scary. If you're a a slot corner so just a hypothetical question here to to wrap us up and close us out. You know of of four guys on the broncos roster the ones that we've highlighted here jerry. Judy bradley chubb garrels patrick ser tan and we want to include justin simmons in this. Because you're down here chris. Do we want to include them or just the four guys mentioned i know either so it's hard to not include one of the one of the best safety justin simmons out of those players. Who would we want on this giants roster if we could steal one of these guys to become a new york giant who would we want and i i'm just gonna come out and say i'd rather have bradley chubb out of any of these guys because one thing that the giants are still lacking i think is a little bit of juice as a pass rusher. I know that we have high expectations for social ari but man if they had bradley chubb that defense would be scary. If you had a player of that caliber. So that's where i'm standing. I'm going with with bradley trouble. This one i mean you can knock pick whatsoever. You cannot any of these pigs. I think they would all be really really solid answers for right now. Man i lean towards. I lean towards bowls just to think he's the best player out of these four. You actually might be the fourth best player but you have to look at the giants situation at the context of the offensive line in the question. Mark you have at right tackle and possibly left tackle andrew. Thomas doesn't develop clean up some of the mistakes that he's made. I still remain optimistic on andrew thomas but it has to be shown to me at the same time..

"So i don't think it's too crazy to say here that both these teams coming into this game are equipped to be very very good defensively. And there's a strong possibility this ends up being a low scoring slugfest type game just based on some of the stuff that we've talked about here and if we're evaluating this this broncos defense it has to start with talking about their edge rushers as well as their defensive line and the obvious ones that will be talked about throughout the entirety of this game is von miller in bradley chubb. Both highly drafted players both highly talented players and have been when healthy very very disruptive when they're both on the field and so the giants gets face these guys week one when they're both available and ready to play. It is going to be a tough task for. What's supposed to be nate. Solder and andrew thomas for blocking both of these guys yet chubb is actually dealing with a i think a slight ankle tweak right now need in practice on wednesday that could just be the broncos managing his rep. So it's there's something to pay attention to men. How dangerous is a chris. Von miller and bradley job against matt pair needs solar and andrew. Thomas i mean. That's something that i'm i'm pretty concerned but not to mention the return of mike purcell. Who's one of their better nose. Tackles who can really anchor down the front defense. That is run a lot by vic fangio so this defense against his offense of lines due to the front against offensive line is something that ab i. I have some some some concerns about shirt. I think we have to start with those two edge rushers the last time those two guys were healthy together. Twenty nineteen they. Had i think twenty six and a half sacks between them up chubb has been getting better he had both at seven and a half sacks just all on his own last year without a whole lot of help from elsewhere in the defense von miller was missed the season with a dislocated tendon which ouch and they had completely different secondary that something will get to a little bit and not a whole hell of a lot of help from the offense so if those guys are healthy end clicking end we did get to see them in preseason von miller. He looked like he might have been a little bit rusty but a that dude has been so good for so long. I don't think you can plan on him being any less than his best but then they also have a shelby harassed sean williams dream on jones in their front seven yet. They've got a lot of guys who are really good at penetrating in creating disruption in the backfield and yet that has to be something the giants account for like. They're just not as about it scary too. I mean it's it's definitely that you think about this denver broncos front you think about bradley chubby think about bonn miller then you think about the struggles that you saw in a note was priests anything about the struggles that we saw from andrew thomas in the preseason it's that's definitely probably the main concern. I would say faida circle one liability at the giants have right now. Is the offensive line just in general. I mean you. Add billy price ben. Bredesen's possibly help the interior. They could realistically see snaps. Two and a half weeks removed from joining this swat. Just because we saw chamomile partially porn teller pendant. I mean how much is this guy going to be able to play on that. And i'm wondering how much just I i think the giants gonna come out and attempt to establish the broad. They're gonna attempt to push around this. This front and not allow von miller bradley chubb to pin the rears back rush on guys like you know a andrew thomas but in the situations where they are where third long and they're not able to get the run going giants are going to have to probably keep tight ending are running back into chip to help block to slow down those pass rushers Her might see a game plan. Similar to what we saw jason garrett run against the washington football team twice last year where it was a run heavy approach and not a lot of deep drops. Really just a lot of quick game. Just give the football out of your hands. To mitigate the effect of chase young montas sweat and he did a pretty good job doing it. So let's hope that. If jason garrett replicates we could slow von miller in bradley down i think just to to try to predict what vic fangio it's going to do and that is you know that might be a little bit of a fool's aaron because he is definitely one of the best defensive minds in the nfl. Yeah i think he's going to almost try to invite the run. Yeah he uses a lot of like almost five one type alignment in his new defensive fronts. Walking will linebacker. Down to the line of scrimmage but he even though they didn't they still kind of gave up a lot of yards on the ground last year when their defense is healthy. They've got the guys up front. Where even though it looks like. You're getting a light box. You really aren't. They're good at building that wall. Along the line of scrimmage. And you talk about shane. Lemieux with the partially torn patellar tendon. How much is paying going to affect him yet. You can be a tough guy but if your body doesn't wanna work right it's tough to will it. So this really is. I think the matchup debt could define the whole game and another thing to add in here too as well with this. This broncos defense another aspect that is just so strong is their secondary and we spent the offseason talking about how the giants rebuilt their receiver group. They made all these moves to signed kennedy golladay to bring in various tony. You've also got john ross. They signed in free agency. This is a completely new look group from what we saw last year. And we have high expectations but the broncos conversely they did the same thing with their secondary they made some moves to to rebuild that group and they have a pretty talented underrated secondary that they're going to be trotting out there on the field drafted patrick's retain top ten. They also they have. Is it key positions with kyle fuller and Ronald darby as well as justin simmons cadence turns we know is a very good athlete. Not necessarily the the best safety who plays on when he put brings it all to the field but a good athlete general so this is a very very strong secondary that the giants receivers are going to be facing off against. Yes the secondary with. Patrick 'certain on. I'm wondering how they're going to utilize 'certain just because i've heard rumblings that they're probably going to use 'certain in a role similar to To cover guys. Like travis kelsey end darren waller. The giants aren't gonna have ingram Allocate 'certain in that manner. Even if evan ingram was one hundred percent healthy so we may be looking at some 'certain covering kenny golladay. Who's coming off an injury looking pretty good from all the stuff that we're seeing in practice but other than 'certain is going to be as i you know action you have kyle fuller. You have ronald darby like you said. I mean kareem jackson. Justin jefferson or justin simmons. That is a really really solid back. End safety in the bryce callahan. Who a lot of people were talking about last year as an excellent slot. Type of cornerback. Who can probably cover sterling shepherding. That could be another match up to watch just from the top down. This defense is is very solid. The giants offense has question marks. And that's probably why we we want to discuss the concern that we have. Especially if they can't block von miller and bradley job. So i'm interested to see how jason garrett is going to use players like cadavers. Tony and how is he going to operate. Just the receivers in general but the snap counts. I'm wondering how much could area's. Tony is going to play how much they on barclays gonna play..

"Bridgewater is the starting quarterback that was named during the end of the preseason. And it's very very very different. Going against teddy bridgewater thing going against trulock. And i remember when we did the show where we talked about it. One of the things that we indicated is that teddy bridgewater is going to be a lot less mistake prone and do we. Is that the kind of sentiment that we're sticking with here is that they're going to have to prepare for a guy that's probably going to be a lot more conservative but is not necessarily going to kill them in this game. I think he's more conservative but he can make mistakes. He somebody who threw. I double digit interceptions last year as the quarterback for the carolina panthers. I think he can be baited into some mistakes. I don't. I don't think patrick graham is going to struggle necessarily to to put teddy bridgewater in those situations. I don't think he's going to throw the ball as aggressively downfield as someone like drew lock which usually leads to a higher probability of mistakes actually transpiring. That's kind of where. I'm matt with that and i think he's just a better processor has more experience than a player like drew lock. So that's kind of where i stand with it but steadily still feel like mistakes could happen with teddy bridgewater just not as frequently as someone like drew. Lock in pretty much. Any quarterback is going to make mistakes. Nobody's perfect. I even after playing football for about one hundred and seven years. Tom brady still makes mistakes. But teddy bridgewater is definitely a lot less mistake prone. I don't want to say he's not aggressive because he will test a defense deep if the opportunity is there but guys like drew lock who yet his arm is so much of his identity is a passer. They want to throw the ball deep. He he's looking for any opportunity any excuse he can find to yoda's Those forty yard rainbows and that is just not teddy bridgewater game and that does lead him to be a much safer quarterback for his offense. I think it's interesting to just looking at bridgewater since he is the starter his situation last season in carolina and now a situation in denver to really good offensive coaches in the sense of pat. Shurmur has offense coordinator matt rule as head coach last year. End two teams that have just a bunch of skill position players around carolina last year. Dj moore who. I guess you could say wasn't necessarily maximized in that offense robbie anderson who had his games curtis samuel who had a guess. You could say breakout type. Years last year and carolina with teddy bridgewater as his quarterback. And now he's going over to denver with all of these weapons. I'm wondering if he can actually take a step forward with players. I cage a hamster. And jerry judy really kind of Growing into their second year as nfl wide receivers No hana as tight end. I mean there's a lot of weapons to be concerned about. I'm wondering what teddy bridgewater kind of stacks he'll put up in this type of offense with pat shurmur. Does a lot of you know half feel high low. Reads up easier. Typo offense for quarterbacks to kind of maneuver we've seen him have significant success in the nfl with the likes of case keenum's wondering what he's gonna get at bridgewater. Yeah that that. I think is an important point to bring up. Pat shurmur runs a very quarterback. Friendly offense you talking about half the half yield reads he. His whole philosophy as coach is basically making the game as easy for a quarterback to process information. Quickly distribute the ball quickly and safely. And then get guys in position to make yards after the catch make plays it for all of the failings. Pat shurmur had as the giants head coach. We saw a lot of that in his offensive scheme with the giants and really teddy. Bridgewater is a really good quarterback for that scheme. And i think it also does help the to know each other. They have a prior relationship from minnesota. You you get the perfect vanilla quarterback to run the perfectly vanilla offense and you know we'll see planning plenty of runs on second and long. I'm sure with devante williams. And melvin gordon in this game but it all seriously though like you guys are already talking a little bit about the weapons The teddy bridgewater basically needs to be a little bit more successful than you know. He's been in the past. This is a pretty good skill position group that he is going to be working alongside with the denver broncos at least to start the season until you know as long as he up starting this year. The receiver group is very very underrated with cortlandt. Sutton jerry judy mean tim. Patrick had a bunch of really good games last year. And then a lotta people are talking up caja hammer as a as a really underrated player who can take off of a defense with some serious elite speed and not to mention the two running backs that i mentioned like. That's a pretty good group that they are going to be using out there. And i kind of look at this here as as long as bridgewater gets the ball into the hands of these guys as long as shurmur is at least decent at the play calling in this with playcalling in this game. I think that this offense is a little bit more capable of producing than i think. Most people anticipate the sense in feeling about the broncos offense that people have is really tied to the fact that drew lock just wasn't getting it done at least not consistently last year where it that offense could get no traction even with all of the all of the skill position players. They've got and all the talent they've amassed over the last couple years it. Maybe teddy bridgewater is the keys to the ignition. Maybe he is. i mean. last year they went five and eleven. They ranked twenty six passing yards withdrew. Lock twenty four in total yards. Twenty eighth in points scored. I know lock was in his second season. But we saw daniel jones second season. first season. pat shurmur offense. We saw daniel jones. Twenty nineteen put up a lot better numbers than that impact. Shurmur offense with not. I guess you could say since the since they did lose portland saw nj. Judy was a rookie cage. A hammer was a rookie. No one was injured a lot of last year. Maybe it's comparable the skilled position players. That jones had twenty nineteen unlock. Hadn't twenty twenty mean. You had saquon barkley dealing with the the high ankle sprain for most of the year broke out really strong down the stretch of the season so i guess as comparable but we saw will look like daniel jones do a little bit better than drew lock the their first years in pat shurmur offense in but you also saw both turn the football over. I mean i was definitely an issue that jason garrett wanted to correct with daniel jones we saw locked turn the football over quite a bit last year as well as make really boneheaded mistakes. I remember that one game against i think it was the raiders. Las vegas raiders. Where i think he had like four or five turnovers of games like that against divisional opponents. Just gonna sing your chances if somebody like teddy bridgewater steps into the building and shows competent offensive play. I know our guy mark. Scofield was rooting for his guy brett rookie into crack job. Mark.

"There wasn't a lot of depth at that position. Dick around the vincent syria. I think there was one guy that went in. I route young serious. I'm curious away on a question for you the giants. What's the consensus from the the fan base about daniel jones. That's a guy that you know. Like i mentioned i. I watched some tape on this from from pat. Shurmur and then as rocco's country with a young quarterback drew lock. There's been this massive debate in how long you let a guy Go before you decide if he's the guy or not right if you've invested fix into How long be patient. Everybody's looking at josh allen who turned around his third year a consensus with daniel jones is or the giants fans wanted to be patient with him and i think the he can become guy or what the veiling sentiment. Oh i think the consensus is that this is new york and there's no consensus at all but now in all honesty the deal with with daniel jones is. There's a lot of talk. You mentioned josh allen. There's a lot of talk about about the josh allen. Esq year three leap baker mayfield took a big leap as well. And the one thing that i can say is that it. From an organizational standpoint. The giants are not confused. The giants are all in on daniel jones. Dave gettleman is still the gm who drafted him. Joe judge as head coach. Y- wasn't wasn't with the giants when jones was drafted but judge has been all in in supportive jones The giants went all out this off. Season bringing in kenny golladay You know bringing in kyle. Rudolph bringing in devante booker as a backup running back for saquon. Barkley They went drafting. Could area's tony. They went all in to to try to put weapons around him. You know that that can show once and for all whether or not. He's the guy. The general feeling i think is because this is also dave settlements fourth year as general manager and i think they in the giants had losing records each year. You know of gentleman's tenure and there's some impatience even from ownership there some impatience. John mara said you know he's tired of losing. It's time to win some games. It's time for us. We feel like we're making progress. But it needs to show up on the field and there is a feeling that there will be some changes. Maybe at the general manager spot maybe at offensive coordinator may be at quarterback depending on how this season goes so this could be a make or break season for daniel. Jones could be a if he shows you enough then he gets to be the guy for the rest of his rookie contract. If he has another ten or eleven touchdown pass season like he did last year. You maybe the giants are convinced that they go in another direction. They do have two first round picks in the in the twenty twenty two draft. So they could if they had to. They could package those to move up and get a guy and start over. I don't think they want to. That's not the direction they want to go in. Obviously but this is a huge year for daniel jones huge year for the giants in general just to figure out the direction of the franchise long term which is interesting.

"High hopes for either of those guys. I'll put it that way Gambling was a guy that i liked coming out when he was initially drafted versatility. But i think maybe he's been that versatility has been overused. A little bit is it. Seems like he can't really find a position. Is that think if i'm not mistaken. He's kind of floated around on the played all all over the place But we'll see how out i think. Probably fleming's maybe. Just as good a shot as bobby massey to the majority of snaps the The broncos are in a tough spot at right. Tackle those guys are for a reason and it was so late in the process. When john james got hurt in so you know. That's that's been something that the broncos fans criticize the front office or is that we've kind of known for the last two years the john james's injury prone we don't have a lot of tackle deaf behind him and they've asked on tackles in the draft and he came back to bite them this year. And so we'll see what happens. Hopefully they can get some meaningful snaps out of either mass. Your fleming at the right tackle position but if not they're going to be in trouble all i will tell i will tell you this in bronco fans this. I was actually happy a year ago. When the giants brought cam fleming into new york because for five or six years the first portion of his career he was a very good swing. Tackle a little bit of right little bit left. I think he's dabbled guard a little bit. I think is best. Position is probably right tackle. But i think that what we discovered in new york is kind of what we feared was because nate sold her opted out andrew. Thomas i think the original plan was for andrew thomas to start his career at right tackle. Andrew thomas you know fourth overall pick went to left tackle. Kim fleming moved in as the starting right tackle. This was the first time in his six or seven year career. That i think he had started more than six games. In a season started all sixteen games in the results just weren't good. I think he's he's probably a guy where you if i'm a broncos fan. I probably hope he's not my starting right. Tackle week one because he's a hate to me. He's a good fill in. He's he's a real because he's a hard worker he's pro. He knows what he's doing. He's just not that physically gifted he can probably help a for a game or two but but the more he plays the more he'll get exposed so so. If if i was you guys i would be hoping that. That did bobby. Massey comes in and impresses. Yeah i think that's the prevailing sentiment right now particularly with the amount of games the bassey has.

"In terms of just the The the mental accu men that daniel jones already had in terms of offensive schemes and being also pro ready type guy from a offensive installation standpoint. You lock was very much. Not that way in pat shurmur or came in knin. Didn't really dumb down. The offense for him and i think it showed that he threw a lot at lock in took drew. Lock awhile her. You know to get it and Really didn't start to click at all until maybe the end of the season win. Pat shurmur potentially shifted. Some things out been tried to simplify a forum in so you know it's it's kind of a mixed bag with shurmur is like you. You don't want him to dumb down the offense completely and you want him to get drew. Lock up to a pro ready guy but at the same time. I don't think there was a lot of adapting on pat. Shurmur point to injury lock with expecting drew. Lock adapted his system. We've seen that. That just doesn't work with young quarterbacks time and time again you have to tailor your system to to the quarterback i think how it worked with from lily's from what i saw you know interested in your perspective of obviously. You've watched a lot more giants than than i have with my saturday. Jones is it felt like daniel jones was more ready to take that challenge when pat shurmur kinda threw it at him and so you did see some success in insurers offense. I thought at least from the tape that i watched and It just didn't translate to drew. Lock so i think shurmur okay. Offense coordinator were fine with him. As with the broncos I think he has experienced boded well for him. After broncos ahead at first time on fits of coordinator enriched in gralow the Failed in so with a young quarterback we wanted a veteran offensive coordinator. That could maybe help develop him. So we'll see what happens this upcoming off season How camp works out. But i will say. I think teddy bridgewater probably fits at shurmur system better than drew. Lock guys and so not a Bridgewater's camp of of winning the quarterback battle. So i think probably shurmur in the same boat as vic fangio and.

"And in all of that. And so rocco's fans kinda went through it on you know. One point out with the shawn watson and then all the off field softening legal issues popped up and that kind of died down and then he kind of happened to ken. With aaron rodgers that an all-star back might become available and so broncos and i think a be all over it if a guy like that became available and somebody that would instantly turn the broncos into a play off and maybe even super bowl contenders just by signing his name on paper And so of course broncos fans are excited about it but at this point i think it. It's been such a waiting game such a big game of chicken between the packers in in rogers. It's it's kind of out of our hands. And i think the prevailing fi is the broncos would be interested and they would be willing to give a pretty significant hall if he became available but at this point in the off season. You can't count on that. And so i think broncos fans are kind of resign themselves to hey. Here's the two guys that we do have got a camp battle coming up in just a couple of weeks in if roger shows up you know. He'll he'll walk in maybe the the week. This season starts something in a guy like him. Of course he can jump in and pick it up. No problem but until something like that happens. I think broncos fans are kind of looking ahead at the guys that we have on the roster currently is the feeling you know in the bronco fan base that that denver is a team. That's really good enough to justify that. Move to justify giving up that big hall that they really could make themselves a in a true contender by making a move like that. I think so at least for particularly this season. And it's interesting. Because at the end of this i mean denver for as much as they haven't won in the last couple of years there this year at least on look like a team that is a quarterback away from contending with the kansas city chiefs at least in the division and maybe making a run for the playoffs when you look across that defense. You're returning von miller. You've got bradley chubb on the opposite side and both those guys haven't been healthy together in a vic fangio's defense and so if you can just keep those guys on the field rushing the passer. You've instantly got a an all-star defense right there just from pass rushing standpoint and their secondary with the moves that have been made with patrick ser tan being brought in and i mean i think it's the best safety tandem in the league in. That's i don't know that that's very arguable. The denver has in the secondary jackson justice simmons. And then you've got guys like kyle fuller who played vic fangio assist on bryce callahan. But there's a lot of question marks in terms of on paper. Everybody stays healthy. You've got a really really good defense. And von miller. You know it's come out and said hey this the best team that we've had in a while and so you.

"Family of podcasts. As we wait for the opening of training camp which is just about two weeks out at this point thought we would take a little bit of time to To look ahead to the upcoming twenty twenty one season for the giants. And i thought we would. We would talk a little bit about the upcoming season opener against the denver broncos on september twelfth and here to help me do that. Is jeffrey. Essary a podcast from mile high report espy nations website. That covers the broncos jeffrey. Hey thanks very much for stopping by absolutely thanks for happening so i warned you as we talked about this off line. I warned you that this question was coming. How on earth are the denver broncos five and eleven losers of five out of their last six games. How on earth are. They favored to come to metlife stadium and beat the giants in week. One you got you got you gotta you gotta explain this to me. Because i don't get it you know i'd like to come in here with the the orange and blue collar colored glasses a explain to you. I i have no clue either. Not sure what they're looking at I think there's so much up in the air. With the broncos did it's probably really hard to predict and so maybe that's why you know they're gonna throw on something against the wall or something. But i mean denver still doesn't know who their starting quarterback is going to the in so i think that's gonna be a huge factor in so we may see that shift I wanna have the broncos favor to go in week one on road and beat the giants in You know. I think when you look at paper. They're probably pretty comparable teams and so when you look at. The fact.

"So chris. I was referencing this before we started recording and before we unpacked the the aaron rodgers dilemma. If that's on the table. I think just overall the way i see this team. I think it's pretty steady for me if they currently stick with their quarterback situation and you have at least average to maybe slightly below average quarterback play. I see this as a bears team last year. Where they're going to be really talented defensively. They're going to be at defensive-minded team that is going to probably dominate and slow down some opposing teams. But at the same time you know they're not going to necessarily put up. A lot of offense of numbers are going to be capable and close enough to compete for a playoff spot with a very average record. But what's going to hold them back from really competing is probably going to be some hindrance at the quarterback position. So i i really see this team. Being a middling record type team next season. yeah. I think that's how i see them as well. You know kind of like the bears like washington last year where they've got a bunch of pieces in place. They've got an offense that i think is ready for a quarterback to take them to the next level. You know they've got jerry judy. They added devante williams. They added seth williams receiver. I liked out of auburn last year. They might have added a good piece offensive line and quin miners. And who knows maybe ted teddy bridgewater will help them or maybe drew lock will take that next step that everybody thinks he could be capable of but i think the way. Their quarterback situation stands right now. Teddy bridgewater should be that game manager. Steady but unspectacular drew lock. He could be really feast or famine as a quarterback bo. We're getting ready for this. I i went and looked up some of the stats in more advanced. Stats andrew lock and last year. Outside of garbage time drew lock was daniel jones. They're basically drew lock had a better. Epa expected points added per attempt than daniel. Daniel jones did mostly because he was attempting passes a lot further down the field. I basically nine yards two seven yards. Jones had a bit better success. Rate a better completion percentage again likely because he wasn't throwing as far down the field he was taking a lot shorter routes and Jones he didn't take deep shots very often but when he did they paid off. That's kind of where the two quarterbacks are there. Were literally twenty four and twenty five in this list. So i think the real elephant in the room and you mentioned it. Before is aaron rodgers. We know a iran is anything but grunfeld in fact i would go so far as to say is disgruntled in green bay and i think everybody right now is just kind of waiting to see what happens. Will he play this year. Will he played for green bay. We'll green bay trade him. You will aaron rodgers a hold out or joel. Corey the former. Nfl agent brought this up in a piece for cbs sports. Could rogers use the nuclear option. And opt out of the season because that would eliminate green bay's ability to basically use rogers contract against him and it would force green bay to play with jordan love who they traded up for in the was twenty twenty draft so could green bay go so far as to basically cut off their own knows despite the face of their franchise or would they treat him very late in the process which could kind of be a little bit of a screw. You get used to this new team with almost no time left and take whatever denver is willing to give us for you. There is a lot of intrigue with that situation. But aaron rodgers knows the west side the west coast offense inside outside back in front. They have pat shurmur. There that i think is a very very good offense. Coordinator quarterback fit where. I don't think it would take long for rogers to get up to speed in that offense and that could change the broncos season outlook completely but again. We just don't know what's going to happen there. Yeah yeah we don't really know what's going into this. Aaron rodgers trade deal. We don't we don't really know if this is actually going to happen or not. But there's a reason why the broncos have been one of the most projected teams to do it because as we mentioned the whole beginning of the show defensively. They're competitive team. They are good enough to do some serious damage but at the same time you know if they can get an elite level quarterback it's going to really impact the potential success of this team. If they can get somebody like aaron rodgers. they're going to be good. There's no other real team out there. Like the broncos right now in a position where if rogers is placed on the roster. They are competing for an afc championship. I don't think that's really too crazy to say they might be able to be more supportive than the packers are in right now that they're not trying to actively replace aaron rodgers is the other thing too and we've also seen a willingness to move on from younger guys in the move in the direction of a veteran when they did that with peyton manning so they're not going to be afraid to do it. There's a reason why keeps being floated out there. It's just you almost have to think and you and you said maybe they're trying to spite him by waiting longer and longer to trade him at the same time. The longer you wait the less you can get from the bronx of the packer. Packers less you can get from the broncos so right now there's a lot in the air. The window is closing for them to actually get something done. Rogers might end up actually suiting up and just playing for the packers. But if he's going to get moved. Denver makes a lot of sense. Yeah i think denver probably makes more sense than just about anybody they could make sense for. Maybe carolina or washington but green bay is not going to trade aaron riders in the nfc. They're going to get him as far away as they can. Because the last thing they want is to trade him have him basically pull a tom brady or a peyton manning and take his team to the playoffs and potentially knocked them out like it would be a nightmare scenario for green bay to come up against rogers in the playoffs. You know one in done and have him just full of spite and all but living to knock them out of the Out of the playoffs and said you know. I'll show you that. That is a thing. They're just not going to allow to happen so i think it would really come down to white. Denver is offering green bay comes to the conclusion that they can move on from aaron rodgers that jordan. Love is their future.
"denver broncos" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Big news audio network. I'm joe deleon. Joined by purse baum as we continue our off season series previewing the giants opponents the twenty twenty one season from the perspective of analyzing how they performed over the offseason how they've improved in every headline that you need to know about those specific teams as well as a prediction of best and worst case scenario. So if you happen to miss the other shows we went through all of the various. Nfc east teams. We broke those teams down talked about their off seasons today. We're going to get into the first non. Nfc east team that being the denver broncos giants week one opponent so this is going to be you know an interesting matchup for the giants as they are looking to get the ball rolling. Start the season hot and not have to deal with too much adversity and hopefully finally get a win to start the season which seemingly has not happened for a very very long time. Now this broncos team is a bit of a mixed bag because defensively they're scary. They are very very scary but offensively when we get to the quarterback position. That's where things get a little bit sticky and referencing. What is so scary to me. Chris is they were already a really good. Well coached defense under vic fangio but the additions that they made through the draft and through free agency. Make them even better. Patrick 'certain was their first round. Pick the also signed kyle fuller and ronald darby who are both very good corners. They also were able to bring back von miller from an injury. Justin simmons was brought back on an extension. And then if you look at the draft. They drafted brandon browning linebacker from ohio state and cadence turns a safety from texas. Now both of those guys were not perfect prospects. They had some question marks. But i think the situation that they're being placed in because there they're two former five star recruits going to a team. That is very defensive minded. They're going to get on the field in vic fangio is gonna find ways to use them actively because they're good athletes and they're talented players but overall chris man this. This group looks pretty scary. Defensively yeah i would actually say just to go back week. Denver kind of reminds me of washington where they've got some pieces on offense but what you really have to pay attention to is their defense. You mentioned all of those. Db's they added retaining justin simmons adding patrick's retain the second adding kyle fuller heading Ronald darby adding cadence turns. They've added beirne browning who is a really athletic off ball linebacker probably a good fit for that middle linebacker position you know. I think we all kind of had some questions about his ability to read an offense but once he knew where he was going to get there in a hurry. And then i i would also add. They added jonathan. Cooper the defensive end out of ohio state which he's seventh round pick. He's not a great d- end. But i think just as far as inexpensive depth behind von miller end bradley chubb who had a solid season last year. They could certainly do a hell of a lot worse. And vic fangio is one of the best defensive minds in the nfl. So they're going to be a tough nut to crack defensively. I think the giants are kind of lucky that for once. They're starting the season at home. They're not having to go to denver where I'm pretty sure they haven't they haven't found out about oxygen yet right overall. I think would just makes this team very difficult to face for any offense. That's trying to get their footing underneath them. Circumstantially the giants have to run into this group in week. One which is going to make things. All the more daunting they are trying to completely redirect from how they performed poorly last year with all of these new faces that we've talked about so much during the offseason they wanna game like this to pick up some momentum week one by putting up some good numbers and it's not going to be easy to do that because of who they're facing in their secondary the talented defensive line that they have the talented athletic linebackers. They have there are a lot of names and faces in this group. That might cause some problems for the giants in speaking a little bit on the offensive side of things. They also drafted devante williams. Who was considered to be one of the best running backs in this class. A bit surprising for them to decide to take williams despite already having melvin gordon. That's going to be a really fun. One two punch for that broncos offense and not to mention of the bolstering of their offense of line which was decent last year not on the better. Half of offensive lines but decent. Got the job done. They were able to add quinn miners who everyone believes has a ton of upside if he can hit that potential that we saw at the senior bowl. Yeah definitely i think one of the interesting and we were talking about this before we started recording. One of the interesting things. Where will quinn minors play. They have lloyd cushenberry who a a lot of people. I think ourselves included thought. The giants were going to draft a year ago in the twenty twenty draft while the broncos have him in near as we can tell he was there center last year. But quinn myers is as you put it one hundred percent center so what is going to go on what is going to happen. How is their into your offense of line going to shake out because the giants defensive front is very defensive. Tackle heavy so that could figure pretty heavily into their the hell. The giants offense matches up with the broncos are sorry how the giants defense matches up with the broncos offense just how that interior offensive and defensive line. Matchup shakes out..

NFL Franchise Tag Tracker, Denver Broncos
"Own ego signing the franchise tag is gonna make you more money. In the long run. You will make more money off the franchise tag because you're still going to get the big money deal the next year or the year after. And it's interesting for like Dak Prescott, For example, he ended up getting the five year deal that Dallas ended up wanting simultaneously. He got more money up front. I mean, I think I remember he was six years ago. Control. They got everything they wanted out of exactly right. But on the other side, he had to wait for Patrick Holmes deal to come in. Yes, way for John Watson and better And that's you saying the market on Lee goes up You is an NFL team. You are one of two entities. You are the people that set the market or you are the people that are reacting to it. That's it. There is no in between, and so you can either get out in front of it and pay a guy and it's gonna be a cheap deal in two years. It's gonna be expensive. Looking at the front end. You're gonna get a little laughter when you sign it. And then two years and then your best bet go well, you got a quarterback, that's 80% of the market. Or you're gonna be. You know the team that it's reacting to the market and get going over pay for stuff. That's what happens. You know, the faster you get the deal done, the better off. You are period point blank end of discussion. By the way. Marcus may also got tagged today. So is it. We're tying to justice that was expected, You know, Like I said, I can't go to the particulars. But I had a great conversation there Senior bowl with Eric Burkhardt, who's Marcus Mae's agent? We're talking about the situation and everything, And I think those two safeties are eyeballing each other as far as what the contract Sorry. It's gonna be a question. Which team blinks first, but this was kind of like If we go back several years, everyone Dez Bryant and Marius Thomas. Both got tags. They both ended up getting their contracts done, but they literally got done within the same day. Well, it was pulled. Teams were waiting on the other one, You know, to kind of see the framework and see if they were the same ballpark. This deal done. And finally Jerry was, like, just do it here, you know, And that's and then the Broncos like, okay, we'll offer you that. It is very same thing crazy, so it might come down to the same kind of deal And if the Jets can get Marcus made done, they think Justin's will get done first, and I think it will get done early. Okay, So I think Justin's deal we've got well before the draft. Okay. All right. I like that. They've got to well after that to get it done. So that's just my hunch. Um, based on what I know about both sides of the situation and and again, it kind of comes back to the whole procedural word that was used. That was the word that the Broncos used. That's the word that we've understood this entire time. You've been listening the program, we said From a procedural standpoint, the Broncos will likely use that franchise tag for the second time on Justine Simmons is not the intense and not give him a long term deal. People are misunderstanding this situation, and I even had questions today about okay. Well, if they would've pushed back the franchise tag, maybe the Broncos could've gotten something done. Or maybe the Broncos should have tried to do something like the Cowboys were. This whole deal came together in like 24 hours. The fact is, if you You with the way it's supposed to be viewed, which is what the Broncos are doing. This is a we don't want you going anywhere. We don't want to risk getting to the final 11th hour and all of a sudden there's a paperwork issue, and we can't do a bill. That's exactly right. We do not want to risk that. We're not gonna stub our toe. And so we're going to go ahead and get this thing done now and understand they on the other side. The expectation by all parties involved is to get something long term done. Yeah, um and how it should be used by the way the doctor getting it done in 24 hours. I hate that. I hate that term because it's It's not really They were close last year last they were. They were close last twosome framework there, But I'm saying that like it really escalated over the last 24 hours. To appoint, at least at some of the reporting this out there really escalated over the last 24 hours that they were able to get to the finish line right before the franchise tag deadline, right, so that that's that's the thing Dallas has been called. They were close, actually Latin. Not last year, the year before last, Scuse me. Before the first tag that September. They were close. Stephen Jones, They believed they had it. They believed they had it and they were. There were some issues with length and and how the final two years of the deal were structured and all that kind of stopping. It fell apart last night, but they they thought Dallas thought they had it done. S o. You know, I'll just I'll just leave that at that. And we can we go up but a sparse the Broncos go. I have no doubts that they'll get this deal done. I really don't have 99.999999999% Sure they get this thing done, Okay? And then as far as
John Elway to hire new GM for Denver Broncos, surrender final say over personnel starting in 2021
"The day here in Broncos country, John Elway after 10 years In the GM role is going to be changing his role with the Denver Broncos. He is going to remain president of football operations, but they are hiring a new GM. Alfred. What do you want to see in the new GM? Uh, I want to see E guess a blueprint. I want to see the of continuous blueprint of the same players being drafted year after year. Time after time. Even when you add guys in free agency, they all fit the same mode. So you know what the players look like before. They even become part of the Denver Broncos and give you an example. We could talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we can talk about their offensive lineman. We know that they're big. We know that they're quick and they're not really massive man who stay in place. You have to be able to move out of the blue print. There has been going on for a long time, right so We need a blueprint. We have to have a blueprint of what these players like. You can't get a guy who is a second round defensive lineman who can't play on the interior of the defensive line. If you don't play a 43 defense in the 34 defense, you need to have a big style guy. So way get threw out some of the You know some of the selections that we've had in the past because guys were good college players. If they don't get the blueprint and the model, then we probably won't have them as part of the franchise going for what they have to be in that. Category. Jo Jo Oils What are we doing

"denver broncos" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Nfl. Commissioner roger goodell may laughing stock of the denver broncos okay. There's plenty of blame to go around. I understand that With that hill faded sham of a game on sunday. Thirty one to three is at. The denver broncos ever had a chance begging the question. Why wasn't that game postponed so many other. Nf l. games have been given the fact that well. Let's just say the broncos we're kinda short very key critical position that of quarterback and to me that question if you can nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten. Drop me a text on our thirteen ten. Kfi am text line at three one nine nine six via text this morning. John says i watched that game to halftime and then watch can't do cartoons with the grandkids. No difference i understand very tongue in cheek and your reaction to this game but unfortunately jonah can't understand for the life of me why goodell thought it was good for the nfl brand to make a mockery to make fools. And i'm not calling them. Fools to make the denver broncos look bad when they didn't have any chance whatsoever of even not even a fighting chance of making some sort of stand in this game against the things. John goes on to say relative to mayor. Hancock mr yay for me. Nay for the whatever happened. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Right john says hancock has become a great example of a political power induced delusions of grandeur now in that point john. I couldn't agree with you more. And you tell me though as we try to link these stories together and maybe it's a stretch but when it comes to leadership both near and far and you see the hypocrisy as those with a delusions of grandeur are choosing winners and losers. Not only around the state but indeed around the country. Is there any question as to why they're mandates when it comes to their edicts when it comes to covert and all the guidelines and all the restrictions are being met with a bit of. Well i'm not going to necessarily say resistance but how about skepticism skepticism. Why well could it be not to lapse into cliche here but could it be that actions speak louder than words and if you're looking for leadership again it might seem like a stretch. I think kendall hinton has shown more leadership than have many of our leaders when it comes to stepping up in a time of crisis..

Can the Pittsburgh Steelers Go Undefeated?
"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl. Winning quarterback that was tom brady and rothlisburger. Isn't tom brady but he can do. Some of those things in important moments. And we've seen of do those. And so i think this team can most certainly went into as you mentioned chase claypool his nickname if catching on with you but maple tron. He comes from canada. He's this guy. I didn't know anything about. I wonder if you did because he has seven touchdowns in his first nine games as a pro. What has he brought to this offense. I mean you look at what this league is turning into. Because of the lack of physicality it's a it's a size speed league right like it's starting to they used to be. It didn't matter what happened in the shorts olympics at the combine like if a fast it didn't necessarily mean it was going to translate do can do certain things there did me but it's starting to mean that at the wide receiver position because of the rules. Like if you could flat out run you're gonna probably get open because they can't hold you. You pass five yards. They can't hit you across the middle play putin critic who has great hands he tracks the ball. Well he has a big body and so when you have all those things just translate we've seen chase claypool. You know kind of come out of nowhere. They just kinda have a knack for finding people that sit what they want to do and utilizing them in a way. That truly helps the team chase. Claypool is just another example of that

It looks like the plays going on behind him off. He's so celebrate. It does look. Yeah. He's mugging for the camera during the play like I could do that like everybody's doing the job. Yeah, like a hog Flex like a flex So Whitehead and Levante or like looking at each other doing the Hulk Flex. Oh, this is the only one from the offense Tom is giving Mike Evans the Heimlich small and his mouth guard. Yeah. Mike has caught that touchdown and Tom Brady ran over to him and did that was like whispering in his ear while he was bugging him like an awkward behind the awkward-looking. I do feel like that with Tom Brady took if he wasn't to go and he would be like kind of a Greg Olsen a little bit. Not quite as bad Greg Olsen Not That Awkward not that awkward but a little bit. Okay, here's another one and off and well look how happy he is. The happy camper right there. Yeah. He's like the most photogenic person on the team got a big smile. This maybe is maybe that's a mouthguard. He's got in that's got teeth on it. That's hilarious birthday is again his little scrunchy face like space ketball scrunchy like a guy is Clay smiled so big his eyes are closed. Oh, here's Pat O'Connor's. Blocked punt and Recovery get him. It looks like a slimmed-down Ryan Jensen. Yeah, he looks real bad. Yeah, he's got a big beard. Fingers are taped up to huh interesting who is that to the left of him is that's is that Levante 50 might be a Levante but it's on special teams off from Pizza. He wouldn't be able to is that a to might be fifteen? I carry the number. Yeah. So what about these uniforms? I was so excited. So to see these Uniforms on the stop shower now and why it's okay we could talk about uniforms lawyer up there. I was kind of disappointed in them. Not that they're ugly the red and white really pops off of them. I love that but the pewter, you know, it matches a helmet it all works very well, but it looks like a faded black. I think it's the contrast next to the orange. Right? You've said that during the game. I thought it made it look a little brown on the broadcast. Yeah, like it look like a Cleveland Browns. Game, yeah, the orange with the Denver Broncos were wearing did not complement our pewter. I know which is really disappointed cuz it looks so good by itself off. Yeah. Yeah, and I tell you man the red those white numbers with the red outline really pop really really stand out. I like that. I think if they were to wear them against a team like maybe Atlanta where it's like black or orphaned land. Oh, yeah, you would do probably show would look better or maybe even look worse because then it'd be you'd see Pitch Black and then you'd see ours which looks like a like these jerseys were originally black and then when they were washed a lot to me, they're just like a charcoal color computer. That's women. Y'all could see these cars like it's black or it's brown or it's white. Y'all got so crazy color nails like fuchsia, but why we can see all those color and see I can't however the problem want to see those colors. One thing. I want to see is he's blowing winds baby. Yeah Victory Monday are the best Monday. So Barret got that safety. That was sweet. I love to seeing that I really like to see I really liked seeing his involvement in the game. And like I said, it's not that he hasn't been playing. Well, she's he has been getting the numbers name first game. We should just write the first game off cuz all the cheap met the that the Saints did. Million, plus we shot ourselves in the foot that game but you know first game don't count. How about yeah, we just didn't have it together. Yeah, first game doesn't count bear has been playing well and it's just good to see that he's get some numbers now. I think it's going to be a continuing theme for the rest of the year. If you've noticed almost everybody on our team has great numbers. We're getting good tackles or getting interceptions. We're getting quarterback hits. We're getting stripped sax. We're getting fumbles. We're getting tfl's. I mean like everybody across the board isn't anybody that's playing bad out there? No, I don't think so. Either. Everybody's got good stats Whitehead the Jamal Dean Joseph called a Davis mean he's killing it SMB. Hopefully he'll be able.

"Well, I think it's just a matter of like. I don't it just be quiet. We know what we're doing. You know, we don't need you guys right we can win. Anyway, yes. Now we did whoop up on Denver there, you know, there was no point in that game where I felt like they were a threat whatsoever. The closest they got was within 13 points of us. And that was I think of the second right before the half well and people were complaining on Twitter about game management and you know, and I'm like, I don't care a no point that I ever feel like the Denver Broncos were a threat because there I mean and I don't mean to be ugly about this but we've seen this type of Team before in the Buccaneers. We feel that this type of Team before so we all know and I do I know a lot of time and especially when the Bucks get up Bucks fans have like PTSD that they think we're going to give it away. Yeah, and yeah, but I just didn't feel like it was ever again. Happen because even during the Denver Pittsburgh game like Pittsburgh got up on them. I think the score ended up being twenty-six two Twenty-One and eighty Pittsburgh had score gotten up to 26 and it was like twenty six to ten or something like that and Denver put up some points but not enough. I mean they kind of started to come back but it was a garbage time points, which is what they were doing with us, too. Yeah, we had total control of that game. There wasn't a single part now the Carolina Panther game the you know, there was a little bit of time there. I was like, oh man, you know, we're letting these guys get a little too close, but we held both games. We've never we never relinquished the lead. I mean, we've only given up the lead in week one. We have had double-digit leads for most of our playing time this year. So, you know, that's pretty good. I mean we were up at Carolina Twenty-One exempt at one point. We were up against the Broncos what twenty years it was 23 to 10, you know? Yeah, we ended yeah, we ended the half 23 10 a.m. Yeah, you know, yeah, so we're you know, we're putting a hurting on teams. But let's let's not fool ourselves and I'm going to say this about the Pittsburgh Steelers. Everybody's talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers is a good game know, they're not, you know, if the way they played Denver Endeavors just not a good team. And they gave the Steelers a hard time does close. Well. I did not realize how bad Ben Roethlisberger's arm is like he looks Drew Brees. He's looking really bad. Yeah, but bringing that up to say. Hey Bucks fans. Let's not get big-headed about this because we just played a bad team. Yeah, we beat a bad team which is what you're supposed to do. We did that but Denver is not a good team. I mean their their life to your loads here. So, you know, it's a win I love it, but let's not get big-headed about it. You know, we beaten the Panthers I would say they're dead load here. We beat the Broncos low-tier now, we we spank both of them which is what good teams are supposed to do. Man, I can't wait for that Revenge game at against the Saints. Oh, oh boy. I tell you what, they have looked like crap. So anyhow, we were going to do a instant reaction video or podcast after the game boy. It's we didn't have our child and when we don't have the child the adults will come out and play. We got just a little too Tipsy I think would be through her for it. Yeah. Yeah, we couldn't operate heavy machinery. Let alone high-tech digital Machinery. So I think we tried for like two minutes then we just gave up. I can't even see the keyboard so she can't do this. Yeah. We don't want this on film. We do not listen in the angels are ranked. So okay. I've got some stats from game. You don't talk about these are numbers sure how we did. Let's break some stats out. Let's break this down cell. Tom Brady did phenomenal three touchdowns 297 yards, not bad. He got sacked twice. But you know, you know I said at the beginning year said, this is our off season. Our offensive line is going to be in the top ten and most likely in the top five. Guess where we're at right now. We're to gas 11-8. Okay. Yeah. We're 9th in Sac percentage in the sacks allowed. Okay, so we're up there. Yeah, we're up there. We've given up five sacks this year. I think in 3 game Shiva not sure I might be I might be wrong there, but I think think that's right five sacks, but we're tied with a bunch of teams for 8th Place. Okay. I like well, we got five sacks on the Denver Broncos. Sweet amazing. Yeah, Barrett stepped up showed up to sex a safety and abandon pass. I forgot about that two sacks 3 tfl she had six tackles good Lord 3tf and two quarterback hits and then Jamel Dean actually led the team in tackles with 8 a.m. Yeah. This is like the this is like the game where the other half of the team showed up and it was like, let's give the other guys break will let these guys you guys haven't done anything this year. It's not that these guys are a giant it's just you know, they haven't had the numbers. Yeah now they popped up man. How about that? Mike Edwards interception? Whoa. Yeah. I was gorgeous a diving one-handed interception. That was beautiful. I think it's a highlight on nfl.com and I plug yeah, probably the best defensive player or the of the week for sure. Yeah Vita had a song Buddha had one which per The Box Communications Twitter account jpp has not at least one sack in each of his past five games. Tying Simeon rice nice for the third longest streak in franchise history sweet and per Gregg Allman. Only three NFL players have more sex than j p like in history know in the office right now currently in fact leaders. So Alan Smith has 4. He's the sack leader. I called that TJ Watt and Hakeem Hicks have three and half each who who on our team has the most jpp? Yeah three. Yeah, I think so shakes Got to Now Winfield's got to like how about that off safety is tied with Shaquille bear fruit snacks and probably most of the defensive ends in the league. I know I was asking around that has a safety ever been the sack leader wage. I want to see it happen. Yeah, he's awesome. He's awesome. I love him so much. I'm going to show you something later that it's just going to endear you to him home our.

"To the Buccaneers Observer podcast. This is Ralph Phillips. Molly bag. Today is off again have no idea what day it is September 28th, 2020 we call this what victory Monday Victory we going to tell you about the Denver game and our prognostication with that never got recorded. Unfortunately, Molly's got a whole bunch of news fours something. That's well. My dad's not a whole lot of news. Information I have information information you need information and I got it while they got the information man when you need your information fix. Are you all right? So we had a great game Sunday. We wanted it's always a great game when you win wage always always and let's talk about that. Let's get the game out of way. What do you think about it Molly? Okay. So we did our preview we had the Friday and I think Friday night we decided. Hey, let's watch the you know, let's instead of just making stuff up out of thin air. Let's watch the Broncos and see what we really think is going to happen. You know, when we started the podcast three years ago. I made a habit of doing this watching the opponent, but we've slacked off. We've been we've very busy this year sure. Just kidding. That's true. And so anyway, we watch Denver on Friday. Yeah, it'd be nice if we could do this as a full-time job. I think we would be a little bit more on top of things don't know in any case we watch Denver on Friday the Pittsburgh game. Yeah. We want Denver and it was exactly what happened during our game. They cannot tackle. They really don't have much of a pass rush like their defense is just not great. The offense. Our offensive line is awful. I mean we talked about how Driscoll got wage at six times against Pittsburgh and it was really apparent when we were watching the game film that there were issues on the right side of page. I know thought it was DeMar Dotson. I thought Demar Dotson was the right tackle. Was it right tackle, but it's not it's Elijah Wilkinson and so is the mortgage in the back up. Yeah, he's backup right tackle, which I think he'll he should be starting. Yeah. Well concern is really bad and the center also is a rookie with John Smith touched on that in his preview article. And he really struggled against Pittsburgh. Yeah, Pittsburgh Pittsburgh the Pittsburgh Denver game was so ugly. Like both teams. It was it the Battle of the Have Nots. It was really hard to watch but it was entertaining it's crap because it was like the Keystone Cops, it was turnovers and fumbles and sacks and interceptions and just bad play after bad play for both teams. We did not watch week one against the tight and I think I saw it part of it. Yeah, they're in week one. I think had it on in the background or something, but I want to Thursday. We should have watched that too. We I didn't think that was going to be representative of what we were going to see because Drew lock started that game. Yeah. Yeah, so we watch the Denver game against Pittsburgh And we're taking nuts and we're like, okay, they can't tackle the bright side of their offensive line sucks. So Shaquil Barrett Vida by now, so they're just going to have a month are going to feast. And their quarterback has basically all he's good for is running around Driscoll. Yeah, it's like even when he wasn't getting sacked six times he was getting hit it off every single play and then they were always they had negative yardage like every drive it was like first and twenty pretty much every time. Yes, and it was our game too. Yeah, they went out for plays or 4 Series against the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost a total of 40 yards in those four points. They didn't have a single positive yardage off the whole second quarter. I think it was third-quarter. It was weird man. -40 yards they lost in 4 Series So when they played us our biggest concern was there but returner number ten. I can't remember his name and Melvin Gordon. Now, we weren't really concerned Burger. Those are just the only two got good guys on Denver. Yeah. Rest of the teams is really not that good. You know, he's just a big pass-catching tight in a special. They're so sure enough. We're like Saturday we said, okay, we got to get this daily podcast out or daily video out and so we can give our you know, more of a breakdown of what we think's going to happen again. Well, we didn't do it and so Sunday morning right before the game. I'm like, you know, what if this game turns out to be like we think it's going to be and it works out just like we said it was going to work we're going to really regret not doing that video. So we'd look like King krog not prognosticators. Probably not right like we know something about oh one time we get things right and sure enough the game went almost exact log. Cute expected now we found it. Funny Molly calls it a Revenge game because it seemed like Bruce Arians and Gronkowski now, then we're just getting revenge on the median. Yeah now it was like a spite game. I Spy game which I'm here for it. I love it. Yeah, like all their food too was the tight end. Yeah well and it was like everything that we've been complaining about was like Shaq Barrett not being involved where his feet of Asia. Why are we spending all this money on tight ends? And so Bruce area was like, oh you want to see it go to the tight ends. Yeah. Okay. Well show you we can do this then shut up about it. How that? So I'm just not ever going to complain about anything again. Well, unfortunately, it's probably going to spoil the media coverage that they think they have power to, you know, if they bring something up it's going to change the play Buccaneers got they'll be insufferable then..

"Big Allen, Joe Joe Bigelow, Judgy on K Way. News Radio 8 50 AIM and not one of them, Of course, everywhere on the free I Heart radio at James. From the NFL network joins us here in 20 minutes. Alright. So Alfred the four before Ryan Clady, Matt Prater, Marius Thomas, by Miller. Justine Simmons is Number five just in Timmins, by the way, would be the first Do not get a long term deal. I'm getting that tag. It says a lot. Says a lot says that you're a good football player. But do we deem you great? In one place that we know where great players live is in the safety position for the Denver Broncos. The history of the Broncos say that we know Great safeties. And so if you felt like you have one of those Alzheimer's Doesn't it make sense that she would sign that guy to a franchise? Ah franchise tag and then keep him on a long term deal. I think this is a proven here for Justine Simmons. And I think once again we talked about that briefly during the Super Bowl. And you know I was. I was just wanting him going into this year that most likely this is what's gonna happen. And he said that he was prepared for that, anyway. And you know, we've discussed this a number of times because your You. Look, if you have been a Broncos fan for your entire life. And you look at the long line of incredible safeties that have played At a high level for the Denver Broncos. Justine Simmons just placed differently. He is a more finesse guy out there then. Hey, you know a headhunter. When you look at Brian, you just look at the guys that played the position, starting with Steve Atwater, who's going into the Hall of Fame. Brian Dawkins, who's in the Hall of Fame. You're looking at guys that absolutely would ruin your day. Dennis Smith. Billy Thompson. Mike Harden. Ah! Wait. Just take a more recent look, TJ Ward, you know the Tyrone Braxton was a guy who control the middle of a field as well as anybody who's ever played the position here. And, uh, there wasn't the same kind of reverence for him as a guy like Steve Atwater, who was responsible for a lot of the run game. I don't know how they really don't know. Howto Broncos really? Veal Justine Simmons was financed the wrong word for me to use. I don't know if it's finance. I just think that you know how do you once again the franchise player is supposed to make everybody Around you better. Everybody. Like Von Miller makes the AH defensive line better. It makes the line back is better. He makes the secondary better. He makes the entire offense better because they have more opportunities to get back on the field. Justice Simmons is a safety and is a deep safety. A deep safety is a guy who Dares you to throw the ball down the field and can take the ball away Impressions situations. Um And that's the position that Earl Thomas's play will, um And once again, you know those guys. Have they have a place? Ed Reed was a deep safety for a long time. He wasn't a guy that was around the line of scrimmage as much as a guy like Troy Polamalu, who's both of those guys are Hall of Fame, guys. So it's Ah, It's a different look. And this is like this. And by the way him playing next to Kate Jack. Yeah. I mean, Jackson is a different gods. Kareem Jackson has a throwback guy. That's what I'm saying. These green day. Hell on your day. He's the guy that you have compared. To the greats that have played the position before Justin plays it differently. Yeah, he's a deep safety. He's a deep safety and that is ah. You know that That's that position, at least around here hasn't been as valuable as those guys that have played around the line of scrimmage to John Lynch is, you know the Brian Dawkins deceive Atwater's the TJ Wards. Ah, and and currently Karine Jackson as you just mentioned so that I'm not taking anything away from the deep safety importance. But I kind of knew it was getting it is I will be surprised, and we still have time before tomorrow before the franchise negotiating period is over. I would be surprised if we came up with an agreement. What? Justine Simmons right now. Because I think the Broncos know that they have his rights for another year and maybe next year when they negotiate. The cap will be lower. And what was Ah, week free agent class this year. Maybe we're talking about numbers that are are not the same as they were coming into this year. Because the numbers on the cap next year going to be lower the cap is a reflection of the prior year and this year knowing that we're gonna have Um Some financial difficulties will lead to a lower cap, and that's got away by the players. That's why the NFLPA wants to be a flight cat right right. The players the Players Association wanted wanted to be a flat cap. But there was exciting news today, man. It happen just a few minutes ago, man. More donor. Um ah, the pharmaceutical company. I said that they have had 100%. What was the exact bourbon? Ah, this is so far out on a vaccine is the most promising that they have seen so far. With the vaccine that is in the test phase is right. They have had 100% effectiveness. And, um That's that's good news. That's just really good news, man. That's just really, really good news. So maybe, um You know, because they have great news from the Corona virus Trialled. Ah,.
