Listen: Giants, Redskins And Alex Smith discussed on WIP Programming
"It was seven nothing for the longest time. Army scored I was actually possession right down the field scored. No more scoring in play. The midshipmen excuse me at a field goal in the third quarter to go up ten nothing late night third as a matter of fact, but the navy scores to make it ten seven. Army can't move. The ball comes back scores. A gets an fumble. And turns it into a touchdown. So it makes it the score seventeen seven with under two minutes to go navy to their credit. Got it down the field. Quickly got stopped on fourth down and then on fourth, and I don't even know what it was seven eight somewhere thereabouts. Just now at twenty nine seconds ago. They decided to kick a field goal. They're down seventeen seven. They need boats. Course I need a touchdown. And if you'll go so they kicked the field goal to make it seventeen ten with an upcoming onside kick they're gonna try and get the onside kick. And then go for the hail Mary. And try and type things up for those of you who follow these things the spread of today's game is army a seven point favorite. So as of right now, it is a push some places in Vegas had it seven and a half. So if you add navy getting seven and a half year, puppy your fist in the air. If you add army, and you were giving seven year dejected if you had army, and you were given seven and a half, you're slamming your table on the table because this is not unless somehow you get one of these hide bouncing kicks that a guy just happens to grab and runs. It all the way into the end zone. If army recovers this goes to victory formation, and you got seventeen ten final on side. Kick is recovered by army and the game is gonna win seventeen to ten. I took army and laid the seven points today. So i'm. I'm looking at a Porsche and a win. Not. And oh, by the way, I'll give you a couple of pro picks later, I may need to come up with a third pro pick. Because I always try and give you two three college picks three products while there are three college games. There was only one army navy. I took army today. I three pro games. I was ready to go with one of which I feel a little bit more shaky about right now, I was ready willing and able to take the giants on the road laying three and a half at the Redskins found out earlier today. Just happened to punch a giant reporter as the giants were releasing the information that Odell Beckham junior is not only not playing. He didn't even make the trip to Washington practiced all week, but has some kind of issue with an injury. It goes back supposedly to two weeks previous. He got tripped up on the very last play of the game. Which by the way, rap Smith's that commute. Greasy gouzer your hill of the eagles. Just blatantly tripped Wardell Beckham on the left player. And I don't think it would have made a difference in a game. The eagles won fair and square, but what the giants would have gotten one untapped doubt timed play that they could have thrown a hail Mary into the end zone and take a shot from pass Hatfield. But Beckham apparently was hurting more than the giants will letting on all week. They never put him on the injury report at all not even making the trip down. My pick of the giants over the skins was probably more anti Mark Sanchez. Then it was pro giant. Because I watch Sanchez play a lot not only this past Monday night against eagles when he was pretty damn bad. But with the eagles with the Cowboys and mostly with to get UTSA jets way back when when he was a rookie. And yes, I know they went to the conference championship his first two years in the league. Believe me when I tell you they went to the conference championship because of their defense in their running game, much more. So than Mark Sanchez play. Skins are home. They still have playoff aspirations. The giants haven't been mathematically eliminated yet. But all. Blodget tells you they're not going to be going to the postseason. I might have to move off that giants election to other games. I like guarantee later, I don't know if I'll come up with a third, but I was leaning toward the giants. But take him back him out of the lineup does reduce the giants. Can't sorry. Eight eight five five two one two four two two seven. Anthony's up on CBS sports radio hall. Anthony. Anthony. Sorry about that for about that. You got a two questions for you one. I'm a Redskins fan and the trust about our senior. When I know Mark Sanchez quarterback and our team for the rest of the season. So they might have aspirations of making the playoffs, but they're not gonna make them within quarterback. So I tend to agree. My question is to one, and I don't think he should Jaeger survive. This. I I'd say I I would say probably I'd say on the plus side of fifty fifty nine one hundred percent if he gets fired I'm not gonna come on here and go I'm shocked they moved away from Jay Gruden but because he had not one but two different quarterbacks. Go down on him. That's not his fault. And if you have the right read the Redskins stink it up down the stretch, mostly because of Mark Sanchez. Well, what coach was going to be able to win with Mark Sanchez who. Okay. Yeah. And and running the ball. I know I know AP's had a good year frozen. I'm proud that. We I'm glad that we got him. But I mean, you know, when you have aspirations of Alex Smith and Thais being there your quarterback and running back, and then you end up with more Sanchez Adrian Peterson. You're not going very far in the playoffs made it so and my other question is it looks like Alex Smith, I'm guessing Alex Smith is done for his career. I mean, all reports that you're getting they don't look good. Where did the Redskins go? I mean, we're we're obviously Cole McCoy is not the answer. So do we go into free agency next year for quarterback? Or do we go draft a quarterback? We're probably be seven nine six and at the year. So what are we got a very fair question. They're not until we get further along on how badly Alex Smith's injury is going to keep him from returning if every right could be career ending. We don't know that they're not gonna make any commitment. They're not gonna make any statement until we get more information on Alex met, and they need to have that. By the time. We get to first week after the Super Bowl. 'cause that's when free agency starts now. It's not a great great free agent crop for quarterbacks. I'll just one name your way does. Teddy Bridgewater excite you. I mean, he's he's okay. He's not. I mean, he he's he's he's decent. But he's not great. I mean, I wouldn't I wouldn't give I don't know. I I wouldn't go after them hard. Well, guess what? In my estimation as of right now. And there's always guys that are added guys become cap casualties and get trapped in the light. But of just those whose contracts ended the end of this year, he's to me the most legitimate guy out there that you could say all right? We could go with him as our starting quarterback. It's not a great crop. So you're gonna have to get real creative to be able to find a starting quarterback events not going to be Alex Smith or you're right. You gotta go into the draft or you need to trade. Are you willing to give up your first round pick? You mentioned nine tenth whatever it is. It may be just maybe the Oakland Raiders will move away from Derek Carr. Gouden doesn't seem to have matched perfectly with them. I don't know if they're going to get that drastic in rebuilding at the day say, yeah, we need. Multiple ones are first round pick this year. If it's pretty good and the Redskins may end up being in the top twelve if they lose out plus future considerations. You might be able to do something like that. If I if they come to determination at Alex Smith can't play anymore, or they might just say not time to turn the page. We gotta go young. We got to draft a quarterback. There aren't too many teams that are going to be at the top of the draft. That are looking for a QB. I didn't Justin Herbert is the best quarterback in this year's draft. He's got an injury question going into the. Off season. They don't even know if he's gonna play in a bowl yet or not. So how quarterbacks are gonna fall out in the first round is still to be determined. I know Redskins fans don't wanna hear this. If you're a team that knows that you need an upgrade or to change out at quarterback this probably not the year to do it because the free agent crop is weak and the draft is okay at best. But we shall say. We got a long way to go before we get there. Eight five five two one two four two two seven Chuck bell stave, Mitch hanging. There got plenty of time recipe. I would take calls come back. I'll tell you about the three guests we got planned hours two three and four plenty of time for me to check up on the phone lines till then right now me our guy CBS sports update with I really. Sports flash. It's called."
