Football, National Football League, Minnesota discussed on Mark Reardon


Squeeze it. A little baseball league's lead you to what's happening here. Cubbies and the brewers with the the central the dodgers three AT and T over the weekend against the giants were bad. But that rivalry should at least spark a little interest on the giants to try to ruin the dodgers season. A couple of things still not determined Yanks in the as Yankees are on the cusp of wrap it up that one game playoff in the Bronx. So it's a great sports weekend. Ryder cup. Very good in the morning at not good in the afternoon. Brandel Chamblee is gonna join us coming up at four twenty eastern one hour from now and Jason lockenfora next segment. Teak I know a couple of things I want to ask Jay number one is Miami for real early hot seats. What am I favor topics? I get into that on the show lady on bell. Eric read in the even Jameis Winston fence. If he's got an Intel there because apparently they've come to a conclusion about what's going to happen telling us, well, they have to. I mean, how do you? You can't competitive disadvantage. Sure. You gotta hold that. But even if cutter wasn't sure about what he wanted to do if he and listen, it's going to be Winston and Jamie. It's gonna be Fitzpatrick. Right. No that game. But even if he was married in his mind like, you know, what even though fits flash three straight games. Four hundred yards, blah, blah, blah. We won a couple of games. Baby games weren't supposed to win. Even if you want to go back to Jameis Winston. Wouldn't you then have to give him after missing twenty eight days of practice every snap and during the week? Yeah. But but so they play this week on a short week 'cause they played Monday. But then they have their bye week in. So that's where that's where James catches up. You know what I mean? So it's it's it makes sense that fits is going to play this week again. That's not confirmed. That's just what you and I believe and if and if they're going to go back to James. Yeah. It'll be after their bye week that sensible, but what if fits lights it up? And that's that's why it's it's an intriguing stuff why they're not committing to anything. It goes out throws a four hundred sixty yard and they get a win. And now they're three and one on the season on to Janai you can't especially against that. Chicago defense in Chicago. We'll make our picks a little later against the spread. Obviously, Tiki interior six pack of picks Tiki coming off a three and three week. I was four up in down. So Friday's a great shows. The only challenge for Friday is making sure we get everything in and making sure that we we don't miss anything. And I gotta be honest the challenge shit. I mean, Stanford Notre Dame tomorrow night buckeyes Penn State. It's it's a great sports weekend. Read get to the phone. See what's happening Zach on what kind of game you really enjoy. I thought last night was just sloppy man. Big twelve I know on the guy who's complained in a thousand yards ninety ninety thousand points almost but I need some defensive stops here. Zach is in New York and Zach is on Tiki and Tierney CBS sports radio up Zack. Brendan how you guys doing. Thanks for having me, pleasure, man. This game last night was up. I I'm a friend and honest, I think, you know, it shows more of a lacklustre of the Rams defense that they spend all this money on the defensive guys and players and that none of them came and show up last night. Even though they won the game. Well, I think it's part of it is is health, right? Because it keeps to leave is also they're they're forced into their second level defensively. Marcus Peters played even though he clearly was compromised. He could see it there. D- line Plato came and had five they got after the quarterback when it was especially when it was most important, but you also can't forget Minnesota has a has as good of an offense as any team in the NFL. We we we we we don't think about Kurt cousins is being a guy who can make all those does he made every throw BT, right? They were over. And when they had the zone coverage is with the with the flat defender, it's right over top of the flat. Throwing right in between the safety. I mean, those are hard to make he made them regularly last night the play calling as well. John D Lippo. I think learned from his his mistakes from previous week in buffalo where they threw the ball fifty five times and rain it I think six and two of those runs with the quarterback. So there was more balance. They do need to get more out of their out of out of Dalvand cook. And they're run game. Minnesota I think that'll be even better. But to sit here and say, Minnesota's offense is not good with with with digs and feeling talent. I didn't say a word about their offense question their defense while their defense is disappointing. It's supposed to be the best in football. It's very very disappointing. And it's it's funny because I look at it. And I am and we talk about Everson Griffen. And the fact that he is their their their leader. You know, it's not even a question about him being a leader of this team. He issued a he put a post out immune apologizing for not being available. But that's one of those things you you forgive right? He's got some bigger bigger than football right now. But you would think that one guy somebody steps up fills the void? Even if it's, you know, seventy percent fifty percent of the void, and it, and it feels better they just get their. They got roasted they were mismatched on almost every single play BT. And you saw it was frustrating. I'm sure but it's it's early part of the season. You hope they figure it out. But watching these last couple of weeks with the Minnesota Vikings defense, it doesn't look like they have anything figured out right now. Get rich shoes in Detroit, Michigan riches on Tiki and Tierney CBS sports radio rich. What do you got for? His body taken away. I just wanted to agree with agree with BT. Any earlier point is not a contrarian point. These leaks are need to realize that there are people out here who do not like games where the scores. I just ran on arbritrarily. I can remember before this was a every other game scenario. There was about five years ago. I saw NFL game. And the school was something like forty five to forty one. And the game was horrible. It was complete. We just people running. I mean, breakaway plays everywhere. There was Zillow defense. There was penalty flags and turnovers and everybody was just going on like, wow. That was one of the greatest games you obviously, it was like one of the first games of the year. It was actually terrible. Because of the score in the touchdown, highlighting. They were to be clear. At one of the greatest. And I remember games. We used to have damp fowl, San Diego. Marino. My aim is. Right. You get that every once in a while. Good game. Yeah. When it's not a good game. A random score does not equal. Good day. Too much. Rich, Richard, Richard. What may take I liked it? Because I know these two offenses or explosive and exciting, I don't know who can stop them, very less. They stop themselves last week with the Buffalo Bills in the Minnesota. Vikings those turnovers they stop themselves. There's too much talent on them on their team to to have a six point output. This is more of what you would have expected regardless of they're playing from the Minnesota Vikings and from the Los Angeles Rams. So I enjoyed it. I know what you're talking about. If you get this every week it becomes, but we do becomes we do. The chiefs score thirty eight with their eyes shot again. Eighty points total. We do these are these are the elite offense is in the national football. They have talent everywhere. People are discounting how good athlete how good of athletes who are playing wide receiver running back and tight in the National Football League right now. And it is it is greater than it's ever been. I'm not discounting. They need to set the rules a little bit so somewhat fair for defense. It's not a can't it's so think about a running back, and I've said this for a couple of years. It's finally starting to come to fruition, right? When you have a running back. They can do everything. Right. He can catch the ball the backfield he can lineup as a wide receiver. He can run between the tackles. He can run to the edges as a defensive coordinator. When you see eleven personnel. One running back one tight end or even ten personnel. A one running back and forth a wide receivers run into the field. You're like what do I need to substitute? Keep a linebacker him. Because Todd in this case Todd Gurley they can just turn around and hand the ball. If we if I put in five hundred percent a hundred percent, and and he's going to run through because he's two hundred and thirty five pounds. He's going to run through that db. Right. But if I don't substitute, and I leave two linebackers to get run by a Cooper cups going to run a crossing route turn up the field and beyond. Anthony Barr run by. So it was a coordinator you have you can't guess, right? You know, that's why you need the rules to help you a little bit more. Maybe come back to go back to what it what was it? Checking in. No, no. You don't want to regress to that point. Watch. I'm telling you get the evolution of the running back. Right. It's making these offenses impossible to defend because a defensive coordinator can't be right? He because if you substitute you're getting the two hundred and thirty pounds saquon Barkley Todd Gurley. Leave y'all bell run it down your throat, you know, for eight yards of pop or if you keep the linebacker in there because you need the bigger bodies to stop the run that running back that linebackers field with his numbers facing the quarterback like oh crap. Right last night like last night. A coordinated you were stuck in thousand is a product of the athletes that are playing running back wide receiver entitled right now it took a couple of years for a coordinators, and it took some really smart coordinators to do this Sean Payton, Sean, Sean McVeigh Shanahan. If he had the town. He does have the talent we did with the falcons he did. But he doesn't have the talent just go. But it's you see these guys start to say do I can I can I can game the system right now. And they're doing it. And that's why you're getting games like this. And that's why I enjoy. Okay, right. Listen, I think that. I don't know that this would solve everything. But I know that you know, just for me. It's really frustrating to sit there on a Sunday right bounce around all these games. And it feels amplified when it's on Sundays stand alone game. Yeah. Sometimes it's a well officiated game sometimes is poorly in that's obviously going to be a central theme on on all of our shows. But when you watch eight nine games over the course of a southern actually more than that things kind of blend in and and you get a good feel for the league and the tendencies and the direction. Yeah. It's a narrative that over arches the whole thing, it's usually inaccurate. And one thing that drives me nuts. Right is because you're right. The mismatch you right? I hear you girl as going to pave yet if you like the box, you gonna shove it down your throat. If you throw the extra linebacker out there to stop the Ron you gotta get gassed on the shallow crossing the routes. He's to turn up field at a slot guys. Get run by every linebacker. I hear you philosophically thousand percent, right. But my problem is I can't sit there and watch games. And when you actually have a good defensive stand. Because once you get to the fit five and a half yards, you grit. You grab a guy's waste like you. Gotta stretch it back to six or seven yards. Yeah. You've got to give the defensive players in extra yard to to bump guys off their route route to your point, otherwise we arena football. We said this many times there's there are no rules that benefit the defense zero nine eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven. Let's get the update for MAC, Jason lockenfora, usual Friday spot. We'll talk to him about all the league issues injuries and everything you wanna.
