Listen: Army, Philadelphia And Mike Mccarthy discussed on Reimer & Dakota
"Leaving retiring for the second time in his career as a head coach this time at Ohio State after the Rose Bowl and taking on Washington. We got army and navy, folks. If you're listening to me siriusxm or one of the fabulous Phillies of affiliates, rather that are out there than know. Do you know that this is a low scoring game? Seven minutes to go in the third quarter seven nothing army leading navy. There's a lot of pride one hundred nineteen years. They've played this game. And there's pride because of of serving serving for the army for the navy the midshipmen versus army and their prowess the army nights, and that's what it's all about an army. This year's had a great season. If you look at the independence BYU Notre Dame and army, but especially Notre Dame, obviously because they're they're in college football playoffs but army nine into pretty good on them. And and they struck first with a ten yard touchdown. Even had an interception with one hand that was a sweet play, but that seems like one hundred years ago because his name has been moving a lot slower since then in my hometown of Philadelphia. Kid. I can remember that. Oh, it's army navy game. Army navy game. Because I came from a family were most served in the navy. So there was always talk about that game constantly, and I went to it as a kid a handful of times, and then as an adult I went to it to as as well. Aaron Rodgers this week is on the field without Mike McCarthy after thirteen years he's fired after last week's game. So the question becomes how do they bounce back at Lambeau taking on the falcons? And he said it was weird. It was like they had a microscope on them. And it was as though they were in training camp. 'cause McCarthy wasn't there after all those seasons? Although he did a classy thing to out a full page ad in a couple of the newspapers of record in Wisconsin to thank the Packers and various people and talked about the fans in his years there in Greece. And I think that was super smart. He's gonna pop up somewhere on the sidelines. As a coordinator who knows? But I doubt he's out of the NFL completely. However might have been a little bit of a surprise that the Packers made that move before the season was over. But that's history. Now at this point, by the way, looking for light at the end of the tunnel. The giants fans wondering about the future ally. Manning a million questions in the off season to talk about maybe not a million. But a lot New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham junior scratched from Sunday's game against the Redskins. He's got a bruised wide. He didn't even travel with the team. They disclosed the injury on Friday limited in practice. They didn't think it was serious at the time. Didn't give an official injury designation for the game. And really thought that Shurmur did the coach that he would play that. He was going to be fine. But he is not going to play in that game. At the Redskins on Sunday, kicking at one o'clock eastern. You know, he originally, I guess it happened when his leg was whipped against the Philadelphia Eagles. And you know, he says he this is the whole thing. He always says is he spends over three hundred thousand dollars on his body in the off season. Of course, he can afford it because he got a whole bunch of loot to stay with the giants. But the key thing here is he's not going to play. So if you hadn't heard that news your fantasy player, he's your guy scratch that because it isn't happening and you're in the playoffs. He's not gonna help you obviously. They're in the meantime, some other quick notes from the NFL I mentioned Mike McCarthy that was one of the big stories heading into the week. Also, there's a couple of others as well. Mitch Trubisky starting against the Rams with his shoulder problems. He had that happened in week eleven in the fourth quarter. So he's going to be back. That's big news. And if you play him fantasy wise now, you're up to date there. Clearly as for the Philadelphia Eagles. They're trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. But they got some pretty tough teams to play. It starts with the Dallas Cowboys who are on a roll. And they've placed corner Jalen mills on injured. Reserve. He had a foot injury against Jacksonville in London in October. He hasn't played since. So this isn't completely a shocker, but they've got four games left. And he was part of that secondary. In fact, Phillies without three of their four original starting players for the secondary starting the season for the rest of the season. Because you've got Rodney McLeod, he's on the I R and Ronald Darby as well. Both of them are out that's been part of the blow to Philadelphia and what they've had to deal with in the NBA. There are slew of interesting games tonight. Six o'clock, the rockets and the Mavericks, the Mavericks, our ten and two at home, and they're hosting the rockets a true test for them Houston favored by three. So you look out for James harden. And what he can deliver. That's the guy that got to stop at seven o'clock kings in the Pacers. And as we go down the list, Lakers and the grizzlies will be juicy one tipping at eight o'clock. Lebron James coming off of performance for him in a loss to San Antonio trying to bounce back in Memphis may be one of the better games on the board is the heat and the clippers at home at the staple center. Clips are nine and one. They're favored by nine in this game Tobias Harris the leading score twenty one points. A game is what he's averaging. But I think this game could be interesting despite that line, so it's fun to go to the staple center. Anyway, if you're. If you're there to see either the Lakers or the clippers, by the way. Right. It seems like we just started doesn't it with NBA? But we have it looking at how many games we are into the season. And we're starting to see some certain certainly some trends emerge, and with some of the trades that have happened. We're seeing an improvement like Jimmy Butler. Even though there's talk that Joel Embiid is not happy in Philly with his role since Jimmy Butler traded there. But hey, they can real off ten wins. They've been ten to since Butler arrived and for the fans in Philadelphia. That's what's exciting. And that's what Philly needed they needed. Some other punch if they keep all that under wraps, and it doesn't get out of control. They can have a good thing. Going on in Philadelphia. When we come back and take a look at the bowl, games course. The big four teams that are left. Everybody's interested. I'll give you some updates on the line, and where that falls and also the news that will Greer is going to skip the bowl game to prepare for the draft. Is this a trend? We're going to start to see more of and is it a big rip off for the people who have followed him in his football career at West Virginia k lady NBC, sports radio NBC, sports radio dot com.."
