Listen: Cowboys, Philly And National Football League discussed on WIP Programming
"We'll help aboard. We've got a bunch of good games this weekend. I'll give you just take. Let me take a quick peek at week sixteen excuse me week fourteen in the National Football League jets bills. I care because I'm a jet fan. But let's be honest. Nobody else does Panthers. Still in the playoff Mexican bounce back. Packers first week signs. Mike McCarthy, there's some interest. There can the Texans win their ninth in a row ravens and chiefs to play bound teams in the AFC best defense against the best defense, certainly the best offensively AFC. Arguably best football Kansas City. I think the ravens are the best defense in the AFC and arguably the best overall defense so that is an intriguing early matchup can the patriots win their tenth straight divisional title beaten the dolphins. The saints have a bounce back. We here's the intriguing thing about the saints game this week that probably a bunch of people don't even realize this is a revenge game. The saints are playing the bucks the saints lost leak week one to the box, and the bucks have been the biggest check on I'd squad. And in the entire National Football League got off to the fast start. Yes. Fits magic was bits. Magic week one against the saints. And then a couple of weeks thereafter, then the bottom fell out and they want again last week. So they're still on the fringe of being a playoff team the five wins. But when they are bad, they are awful, which bucks team shows up. So there's some intrigue to that game. Skins are still in the mix for the wild card. But it is Mark Sanchez. So yeah, I don't if I weren't going to be watching game here in New York. I don't know how much attention. I would be paying that one charges should clobbered the Bengals can the Broncos hang in the playoff race against the forty Niners lions and cardinals. The I can't make an argument for that. There's no real reason to watch the lines and the cardinals unless you're ran or cardinal fan. And then the best four o'clock game bar. None is eagles Cowboys. Because if the eagles win they would tie the Cowboys for first place, and they would have a slight leg up in the tiebreaker because the Cowboys have already lost wants to skins. The eagles have won their other four in division games prior to playing the Cowboys in this week other than the Cowboys. They're three and one in division. They beat the giants twice. I'd beat the skins. They lost to the Cowboys. If they beat the Cowboys tomorrow be foreign one in division, the Cowboys only be three and two. So they would have a slight leg up any tiebreaker eagles if they were to win tomorrow's game Steelers and raiders late-game Steelers today bounce back after last week's loss coughing up. A big lead against the chargers. The two primetime games about very good Rams and bears. Best offense in the NFC. Arguably in all of what ball against the best defense in the NFC? Arguably in. College football between the Rams and the bears. The Rams bears game much like the chiefs and ravens game. And and the Vikings and Seahawks is a good wildcard battle on the Monday night game. So there is some good games that we can talk about. We'll talk about them as we go, Sean Wagner ago will join us a little later talk NFL, but we will go specific eagles Cowboys because I think one of the better games this weekend. Chuck from hoboken's up on CBS sports radio. Chuck. Hey, Jodie longtime caller appreciate it listener an act, but. Wait, you remember that? Right. I'm calling from Philly guy. Okay. Yeah. You sound like a Philly guy. There is a guy who called him to you and MAC, amac. Mcdonald's who said that line. I said it wrong. First time caller longtime look. Whatever whatever I most long longtime caller, right? I was going to call you and say, hey, I love you miss you. I mean, you have probably eating more French fries that big Donald. Shows all the time. I wanna give Guan bad McNall shot Al for his longtime at his station break. Oh, by the way. He's eating a lot of French fries. Too. Now, you're getting more. But I'm a huge fan. What's cool about being up here in Hoboken now some temple grad on Philly guy. But now I get to hear you on both. I hear you everywhere on every on every so I do all that's a beautiful thing about eighty internet and be apps. Doesn't matter where you are anymore. You can listen anytime anyplace anywhere. What's funny, though? So I lost affiliate station for a long time because I had gone to law school, I had gone away. And yeah, you couldn't hear now with the app. It's amazing. So people should definitely dial that up and get their stations they want. But then also I do want to ask you because you're you're you. And of course, your father are baseball genius. So I would love to hear your opinions on the Phillies, and are they gonna now somebody? Yeah. The big auto our harbor. Yes. First of all they made a good trade. Chuck good catching up check it in getting gene cigar to be their shortstop for next year. Get out from Santana's contract, which I got when they signed him. They they felt they needed another back. They wanted a guy to come in and be veteran presence in their locker room, which Santana was those two things. The problem was he's a first baseman. And I told it is they played them. A couple of games at third. This year wasn't pretty which means they had to move Reese Hoskins to left field. And he was atrocious. Any outfield so positionally it just didn't work, and they were wise to get out from under the contract that they gave him and get an all star shortstop likes Agoura is pretty damn good deal. Didn't have to give up a lot to get him. So they've already taken one step in the right direction with a trade. I think they will be made your players for Machado and Harper. I don't think they're getting both the wildly optimistic. Philly fans believed that they have a chance for both. Now, I think they could get one. They need. They really need to get one of the two. I don't think it's a lack. But I think they're in pretty damn good position to get one outta two. If you ask me, which one I think it is. I'm starting to get the feeling that the national rise. I talked to John Heyman earlier today. And he thought that Harper was more likely to end in Philly. I still think it to Machado the couple of people in the Philly front office. Go back to Baltimore when Machado signed. So they've known them forever. And I think they've got insight to him the date think he's gonna be worth the massive pay day that he's gonna get. So I'll I'll stick with Machado. If I think you're gonna get a major free agent signing this off season. I would say probably Manny Machado made from jerseys up on CBS sports radio. I mitch. Jerry, happy holiday to you, bud. Do you think the dodgers will get off and trae warning pitches and Napalese trade star? Specially kluber that is controversial. Well, let's go one at a time. Harper is not impossible. They like them. They know how much it's going to cost get him. They've got the wherewithal to pay him did not every team in major league baseball. Does. They're going to have to do some other things tonight. Just going to sign him. They're gonna have to move Pleat and get probably next to nothing in return. Just get his salary off the books. Not that his is outrageous. They know that they're done with camp next year. So his money won't be on the books anymore. So they'll be at a major payroll this year if they signed Harper, but it'll lighten up again next year when they lose a guy like camp, they like to get a picture. I don't know that a guy like kluber who's making seventeen which is alive. Put not outrageous is possible. But the Indians are going to ask for their best prospects do go they'll probably ask for the kid pitcher who pitched so well for them this year, maybe two. Who's going to have interest in league? I don't see the Indians have an interest in. I don't think he's a fit with the Indians. I think they're going to have to trade him. Elsewhere. I think somebody will take on. But I don't think it'd be Cleveland in kluber deal. The dodgers could use another starting pitcher for damn sure. But the kind of money they paid Kershaw to stay. I would not say that's going to be at twenty plus million dollar investment. So I think that they will try and go the mid range price type pitcher rather than top of the market type pitcher. That's just my guess. And yes, the winter meetings start tomorrow in Las Vegas. We'll try and scratch over baseball guests tomorrow, we'll be so unin inundated by the NFL will do it all day acco be here with football afternoon. I'll come in at talent is, but I do wanna get some baseball talk hot stove stuff. So we'll get we'll get someone who's already made their way out the bay. And while I'm very happy to be here with Alicia and hair. Can you guys on the telephone lines? Yeah. I'd rather be in Vegas right now. Because number one it's called up here in New York. Number two. It's nice in Las Vegas right about now. Number three. Be drawing to an inside straight right now. If I was in Vegas and hitting a big jackpot and number four. Yeah. I've been to couple of the baseball winter meetings. And they're fun was doing a show earlier today with a guy who's an actual reporter whose job it is to break news when you talk show host on the radio, you don't have to worry about that. You just do your show, and you go around the lobby and you talk to people and you get some insight, but you don't have to break stories side love going to the winter meetings because it's not highly pressurized if you job is."
