Listen: Russell Wilson, Chicago Bears, Seattle discussed on K and C Masterpiece
"On the show at seven forty eastern four forty Pacific time we've had been on four or five times he's been really impressive. Each of those times. I'm a fan and Cody white hair who plays for the best team in the NFL. The Chicago Bears is going to be on the show at eight forty eastern five forty Pacific almost everything I told you that sentence is true other than where the bears rank. But I'm excited to have a Chicago bear on the show. This is the thing. Still listen, we we we gave a gave a spiel I guess yesterday the day before that we really do work to try to construct a show and have topics and guests that are interesting to you and not to not to overload you with the things that are may be of interest to us or we see every day of New York, sports, or whatever it may be and wanting to you call the think from Alaska Portland, Portland said, hey. I need more Chicago Bears talk and Stewart was listening. Don't think he's just because he's got his eyes in that spikes and bikes magazine monthly or whatever it is. He is paying attention. He went out, and he got us Chicago bear, that's what we do. Here. We want you this shows we want you to enjoy it earlier today on the on the television show. I had the chance to interview Kevin love from the Cleveland Cavaliers he's recovering from that foot injury. That foot surgery probably a month app. We had a really interesting conversation about life post LeBron and we'll play some of that toward the end of the program. And I think as as it's slated. Now, we're thinking nine twenty eastern time six twenty Pacific. I will certainly weigh in at some point on on the exit of Carmello, Anthony. It is now with Bischel, you know, a couple of days after Daryl Morey said any reports of mellow going away where some, you know, come on. What are you doing a statement came out in an Email with jerem his name on it saying mellows going away? So there you go reporting wins again, and we dove into the topic in a pretty serious way. When the news came out. This was going to happen. And my my my opinion hasn't changed smells, very nice guy. Very nice, man. Maybe the biggest waste of talent in the NBA of his generation. And this is another sign of unfortunately talent, isn't everything you have to be able to evolve as well as the world moves quickly. You got to be able to keep up with it. He didn't. And yet again, he is gone from an NBA team that does not want need require his services. And again, I'm not an elevator. I like the guy we'll dive into that a little bit later. We'll talk about LeBron's big night. And how it turns out the sky isn't falling because the Lakers had a rough beginning MLB going to announce its MVP's will get that to you. We'll dive into that in a few hours. I want to start though, Thursday night football another really good game. And interesting game. Both of these teams in dire. Need of a win. We we brought it include the former executive producer who in all his graciousness now is the program director and the big boss. Big boss man in San Diego was kind enough to send me some photos of the ocean. With the words right now Kubo. Thank you for that. I actually I deserve it. I spent four and a half years in L A, and I came to the mid west and all I would do every single day. I would have alerts on my phone in Iowa in Missouri, and Arkansas and all the places I lived when it would snow or rain. I would just I would it was like a bad Tom Cruise film doesn't get that reference. And then I would just fire wherever I wanted to take a photo of the ocean. I have some meals my kids from earlier in the week and just fire him off so Kluger the karma. You are karma's instrument, and I deserve it. One hundred percent. Good game tonight. Big game. Interesting game clue hates must-win. Not a must win. But each of these teams at least, according to sports line have a thirty three to thirty six percent chance of making the playoffs and those numbers drop markedly for whoever loses all the way down to twelve percent for Seattle. They lose this game. And for Green Bay down. I think at seventeen or eighteen percent. According to sportsline calculation today lose the game. But also on display here. I think is something really interesting, and I'm not pretending. Russell Wilson is Aaron Rodgers very few were backs are in Rogers. But as both teams struggle, you're watching one organization Seattle have the right head coach and the right people in the front office and rebuild in place while cell being competitive and the other organization the Green Bay Packers. And we'll see because there's a new GM, but Mike McCarthy still there I'm going to get to some stats to prove this early. I think highlighted continue to squander a window with Aaron Rodgers. And here a few facts that I think back that up that Seattle quietly under the radar has been a really impressive story of how to hold onto a semblance of being relevant and being. Dangerous on the field as you go through a rebuild. And let's start with Russell Wilson. He threw a career high five hundred and fifty three passes or thirty four passes per game for the Seahawks last season. They relied so heavily on him this year that number is way down from thirty four passes the game to twenty-seven pass a game back. He's only thrown the ball thirty or more times three times this year. And yet Wilson has a career as twenty one touchdowns puts them on pace for a career high. He's completing exactly two thirds of his passes also on pace for a career high. His passer rating is one hundred ten point two also currently a career high and he's played really really well to give you some of the geeky stats the yards per tempt. How many touchdowns a fifteen yards? More eleven that lead the National Football League quietly under the radar. Russell Wilson's playing. Really? Well, so why the fewer passengers per game? Right. Mike McCarthy if you're listening, you're probably not probably getting rid of the game. Place."
