Listen: Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson And NFL discussed on Steve Somers Show
"From vote teams, you there's about twenty five guys total on these two teams along that are going to be in the NFL. Now, that's why they're common. The and they're probably a twenty five from the rest of the college. Oh, no, no, no. There's going to be a plenty of. No. But from these two schools, I mean, the kids that they get our guys who are studying and learning to be NFL players the student athletes in these two schools, and the bottom line is all you have to do is check the draft all round so almost every single year. How many from the top five top ten and then listen, I mean, there's also some stars. You're going to find from places like Moorhead state or Virginia union. I'm just saying. But no, these two schools, you go there, and they recruit those kinds of athletes are listen some of the best college football players from these two schools, or the we wouldn't guess from Alabama tonight. I don't think anyone on mother college football guru by any means. But nobody expected this kind of a blowout. Joe is calling from Staten Island. Joe you're on the fan. What's going on? Joe? How are you doing on the trying grip evening we're doing? Okay, and yourself. I am. Okay. Two things one. I must say it was actually even though he's been good. Exactly Seattle battle Lewis. I guess the Alabama loses like watching New England Lewis. Yeah there. Yeah. I know. No dog. And I was glad to see Clemson win. Exactly exactly that it just makes me feel good. That's who. And they did. Unfortunately know, Tom Brady and the game. But nonetheless. Good. Sure. I have an NFL player. I wanna make a going back to the Tom Brady every year. Always talk Tom Brady time, we get sick every year. I've caught this year. Everybody's talking about Pat at home. Check in. Jared Goff cove. He's the real deal could bear defense did everything for one Tom Brady. If you believe he's going under the radar a little bit me. And my my buddy show on living right now all. And I really feel like this is the year that. Tom Brady, maybe going under the radar a little bit. And this could be a perfect to step up show everybody that all the all these NEW GUINEA pig raise everything just giving him a great year come on when. I. Here you go, and then we'll ride off into the sunset and finally just call quick. Well, I'm I'm I'm. Yeah. I'm hoping that that does not happen. I would like to see Brady right off into the sunset. But I don't I don't think in any way, shape or form. I mean, he may get to the AFC championship game. But I can't see the patriots getting to the Super Bowl again. They're not a Super Bowl quality team. We've another twelve and four have the by will be home to take on the chargers and even though Brady is seven or no against Philip rivers. I think rivers as has one win in his career against New England and Belva chat. But that's when Matt Cassel was quarterbacking. He's oh dry. Rivers not going directly against Brady, but it going against Brady Belva Jack in New England, Owen seven and those are two playoff losses. So everything points to a New England. Beating now, but I'll say this. I don't think rivers against now in this game against with. The ravens was held by a terrific ravens defense to four or five field goals that was it with the five field goals. And the bottom line is rivers was held in check. However, I think he's going to open things up a little bit and have more of a passing game and more of a scoring game against New England. I think they can win the game. Now, they're going to be favorite, of course, now, and they're not, and you could make the argument they shouldn't be because, but here's another thing. You got to know. And I think everyone does with the chargers they are the only homeless team and the NFL they really are sandiego and they say Los Angeles and somewhere where they plays Carson, California. In southern California. I think that is between Hollywood and San Diego there were homeless team. And they have a great road record. As everyone knows they want in Pittsburgh. They've won in Seattle Loayza tough planes Verney road team to play. They have one in Kansas City. They have worn in Denver and here over the weekend. They won in Baltimore. And and again, the Baltimore defense held up its end of the bargain, but seven seven great great defense on the part of sandy of San Diego. But the chargers of Carson California charges seven defensive backs. It totally familiar and confused. Lamar Jackson looked like a little toy Jackson out there. Seven defensive backs, including three safeties. And this was something. No adjustments were made it totally confused and discombobulated. Lamar Jackson who was overwhelmed couldn't hold onto the football at one point in the second quarter. They had more fumbles three then first downs too and Harbaugh taking it from the critics for not replacing him not at halftime. After the end of three quarters. You know what? The and I'm sure that many people listening right now know that Lamar Jackson the end of three quarters of play was three for ten or twenty five yards and was starting the fourth quarter. Where of course, you know, things opened up for him probably because the charges relax a little bit made some substitution. And we're looking ahead to the patriots bottom line. Lamar Jackson should have been replaced and a yes, you have flacco on the benches won a Super Bowl the whole thing. Now, I'm not saying that flacco would have made a difference. And the way the rush was with Bosa and with Ingram. I mean, they were owning the the the San Diego. The chargers defense owned that line of scrimmage, the offensive line with with Baltimore couldn't contain the Bose's in Ingram's and the blitzing when that was coming from the seven defensive backs not all seven, of course. But the three extra safeties and the bottom line is flacco probably would not have done much better than what we saw from Jackson in the fourth quarter Jackson in the fourth quarter eleven for nineteen one hundred and sixty nine yards in the fourth quarter and the two touchdowns. And yeah. Had the ball at the end divisively win the game with another score. But time ran out and again Harbaugh and the bottom line is the chargers. I mean, the ravens defense held the charges and check Tony is calling from Colonia. Tony you're on the fan was happening. Hi, steve. How you doing? Okay. Tony. Thanks for the call. So it looks like young mister Hoskins just gonna come out. Yeah. He declared. Yes. I guess you have to watch them more Jackson. He figures. He's NFL ready. I I don't think so. But early gut feeling what the giants should do here. Well, they're going to hold on. Let me ask you this. If with all the needs that they have including still the offensive line and pass rushing and maybe a linebacker, and certainly for the secondary you have a number of needs not so much offensively. You have the weapons there. But if Eli manning is going to start do you want quarterback sitting behind him and wasting that number six pack when you need help. And so many other areas, I'm Mike. Your Steve, I agree. They need linemen defensive in all sensitive. Sure. And they need to improve before they can think about a quarterback and letting guys sit around for to grown kids going to wait around. I'm with you and here, and we're right, Tony. And here's the thing. I mean, I mean he would be sitting behind me live God forbid, I get hurt then you would see him. And how ready is he going to be? So the bottom line is. And the the giants we'll probably you would think I mean the option is there for Galal men and his lieutenants to move down on the draft to get some bigs. They have a number of needs to the defense was terrible worse than the offense. We could talk about the offense. I stay eight games with the one and seven having trouble getting in sync and coordinating and the offense of wine. Terrible the bottom, but the defense couldn't hold the lead. And and gun just was awful from tackling from covering and no pass rushing. I'm just saying ready. So to draft day, they should have drafted to be honest with you, listen. They should have drafted a quarterback last year. No taking nothing away from Barkley. Who is just terrific. Just awesome. I mean, truly gifted and a good guy saying the right things a whole thing very team oriented, not like the atomic blonde with the Instagram day tweeting and with everything and lead celebrating his life every minute of it. No, he is just had great rookie season with the over two thousand yards with the only three rookies with what? Over two thousand yards from scrimmage with the catching the receiving Edgar and James Eric Dickerson. But the bottom line is they should have drafted a quarterback Roland is calling from west orange role into you're on the fan. What's going on? He changed sports. Yes. No. You can talk from anything. What is going on? You're not jumping on the Brodie van bandwagoning. No, I'm not. And the reason we're not you're not happy with Brock's them. I'm not happy with. But. Time"
