Listen: Football, Twitter, Patriots discussed on Nightcap with Ryan Gates
"Chicago's my least favorite I think Mr Bush is going to be a very very very very very good player. I don't think he's there yet. I I don't feel confident relying on Mr. Bisky to win a football game. Their team is incredible. There is great. They're getting max at everybody. They have a talented football team. Obviously there are a lot better than a lot of was predicted. But when you talk about playoff football, I have to always side with quarterbacks and for that reason of those three I would have the same number one. Because it drew Brees. They've done it. Their team is also playing very well. And he's a guy who's been there before and you can rely on down the stretch and know what's to nobody's gonna take put his team in a position to win in these big big games. All right L allow it only because I agree with you that as much as I love my bears fits about Brees and rivers when you've seen that repeated consistency in great play over the years right now, I'm not taking anyone who's criticizing Trubisky. And then and then propping up Goff. Argument. They're flat me, let's move to the patriots. I keep harping on the fact that when you're a sub five hundred road team this year, your Owen three on the road and playoff game since oh six and so very often. We're looking at stats that tell us they are completely different team in Foxborough. Then they are away that this patriots team is primed for a pretty disappointing playoff performance. And this could be the beginning of what we're seeing as a true end to this dynasty. Not just like we said in the past when they've come out and still almost won the Super Bowl again. What do you make of what you're seeing from the patriots yet? It's hard. It's hard to argue that right? Because we're like you said we're seeing things in the patriots that were not used to seeing. And I was a guy who was fighting for like now, it's fine. No figure it out, and they're still planned really really good football. And I'd take Tom Brady steel over ninety percent of the quarterbacks in the league. I don't care how well they're playing. But there is something to be said for these these big games at all of a sudden they're losing back to back losses in December for the first time in a very very very long time. That's not a coincidence. So I think there's still a talented. Football team. I think they still will make noise in the playoffs, and obviously you can never write him out. But I don't think you're crazy to think this could be the beginning of the end. Andrew Hawkins joining us in studio hawk the Cowboys, a playoff team in your mind. No. I don't. Worries me again. I was playing the coaches would always say, look, we don't have to be good the entire year. You have to just get hot at the right time. That's all it takes. We're in December to be get shut out by the indiapol-. Indianapolis Colts this late in the season with so much on the line others still in the driver's seat. I understand that. But it alarms me that they laid in a in such a crucial part of the season. So for that reason, I don't think so I I wouldn't be surprised if any of these teams crept up on them. The Cowboys are super weird to me because everyone got real hot on them for a quick run. And they were beaten, you know, I think the saints win was the thing that really propelled them. I think they depend on defense in the run game so much that if they get behind their absolutely hamstrung, but the style that they wanna play. And was there stuff that you saw on this colts game that pointed to a bigger issues going forward. I don't know if it was bigger issues because I was excited about him. I was I was joining the hype train Amari Cooper who was playing lights out. It seems like his change of scenery is done. Great for him. And the organization Dak Prescott was playing a lot better Zeke Elliott is obviously one of the best backs in the game is just Dak Prescott to me. He doesn't play consistent enough. And there's too many things that have to go right for him to have a really really good game. Stay on top of his game. And the little things can throw him off really really quick. And that concerns me you guys can follow him on Twitter at hawk as always as your Hawkins. We appreciate the time. And you still have the coolest Twitter handle in the history of man. Yeah. I forgot to ask you pay. Someone off with that L NFL money or were you just an early adopter can't test. There's bodies buried everywhere. I can't go. They'd lock a secret relationship with Jack just saying like as a person that wasn't at Jason Fitz for a long time until Twitter deemed like Daniel appropriate person. That's what happens. That's what happened to listen. I got at hawk on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. I just want to be one of the year. Like black male is the answer. Got two percent.
