"Us on the hotline. CBS sports NFL insider, Jason lockenfora. And right now Jason big news for Jason lockenfora. He is leaving CBS to go write a book on the Dino. Oh, here we go. Syracuse football foreign oh into the Clemson showdown break them up. Parade ready down Marshall spring there. Yeah. Airway direct flights from Baltimore Syracuse. But I could get a southwest for. So. Yeah. I told Mike right before we had you ought to go. You know every week. I bet Jason lockenfora Khazanah goes Syracuse one that's the first thing. Jason's going to bring up. It's going to bring up with me. I'm going to be disappointed. Now what we don't do this every week for the undefeated season. Wow. Look Jay undefeated. Being prediction from Jason lockenfora. We'll have our honorary title like that. Oh, I like that. We get the, you know, the the crystal trophy at the end, but we could still claiming I'll take any kind of trophy honoraria, whatever I'll take that. Right. Hey, what did you make a Kirk cousins not going after the fumble there at the end? You know? I don't know that day. That's with the Vikings are gonna harp point about this one. And frankly, the next for years, I don't know that you necessarily want his diving. You know, Donald dominance do those. I think you it. Vision. It's not the Super Bowl champion where there is no tomorrow. You don't have to worry about next week. Freeport left to play. And it's pretty clear they can't stop a damn team better put up thirty five. You know, Josh challenges from twenty seven. All right. So what four days ago? So I honestly. You know the way their quarterback him on that ball somebody's probably gonna strip different from anyway. Sober or whatever. Couldn't get a stop. It. Couldn't get any pressure. Couldn't stop from one drive to the next. There was a new hero. Let's just scream Paris's to girly Alexis. Bombed the cook. So let's throw bombs to. Oh, this Dr speaker all was just sorry. But Earl Woods. Robert Wood, four straight times. You know, you know, let's let's get up. Has some fun with that? It was a masterclass by McVeigh got every team doing what's the basic scoring into the high thirties every week. But that's not what Minnesota frankly this Kirk cousins. You signed up for company back, and we read the fall back here. Now. For four years. Bye. And you know, you just come here and distribute the fall play little point guard have we'll be back. Kids, whatever. Well, not so fast. Yeah. I was just saying to Mike a couple of minutes ago. It's like when it comes to Kirk cousins, he's gone from that. Hey, he's the missing piece to as Kirk cousins goes so goes the Vikings. I mean, he awful last week three turnovers in the first half. They lock he slung it. Great tonight kept him in a game or their defense can stop anybody buddy fumbles at the end. It's like it's become Kirk cousins or nothing. Yeah. Reminiscent with the rest. A nonexistent. You know, running back by committee tried different guys here there. You know, rob Kelley, your, you know, creek Thompson. Sure. Did it really has established running game? And it was kinda him out there by you know, try to throw Jordan Reed twenty times this week. So. I don't know that it's dire football to be played. But. There's a couple of teams that just don't look anything close to what I saw. Device. These are way up there on that list. And that. Aaron Rodgers playing it all one. You know, and that might eventually really catch up with them in a bad way. I thought between rebate but soda one of those things would have pulled ahead Detroit. Looked like they were completely bad. But they could be a signature win at Chicago has no. Semblance of an offense. What's up? Defense is so good that they're competitive every week. Pretty intriguing. Not that anybody who's playing second football. But how that whole thing? Shakes out windows teams play each other within that division. It'd be meaningful. Fox Sports radio. The Jason Smith show with Mike and company from the geiko studios on the high with us CBS sports NFL insider, our guy Jason lockenfora fight him on Twitter at Jason lockenfora. So Eric Reed gets a contract with the Panthers. We've heard from the Seattle. There was San Francisco now signs in Carolina on a deal. How soon is Colin Kaepernick follow? I don't I don't think that's going to happen. Colin isn't getting in fact, every week more and more quarterback get hurt and or fourteen are or the practice of having to have people like that castle. Brandon. We actually play NFL football games for that. But we see Green Bay here after three months of the football atrocity that was hardly now be doing the same thing with Kaiser as we you know, Rogers around with the brace. Not looking himself as we speak. Garoppolo go down. Savage all Tuesday workout, you know, run into. That whole routine like the gerbil, you know, what I mean? Running on a treadmill? Capita can't get a phone call like you can't get a sniff. You can't get an offer to work out. What his agent calls people. They don't return. The toll calls, it overturns, the tech persona non grata, we're getting closer and closer to that collusion actually becoming a reality. Everybody's going to Philadelphia in front of Stephen Burbank system, arbitrator and actually having owners, and coaches and GM at Roger Goodell. Call call to testify and being cross examined by park, Eric lawyer jokes. So I don't see anybody touching him. I think they've been treated like he's completely toxic for quite some time. Does not give me a player who knowledge is created. Treat him as if he's all sorts. I interact or something like that. So I don't think that changes guys we. Look at how many quarterbacks contracts all season. Over in Iraq. Were triple digits. Very bad rosters. Four or five quarterback. This guy can't get a workout. I don't think any changes just because Eric Reed got a one year deal with no frills and no guarantees. Hey, Jay Lassie. Let me get let me take you back to what you mentioned a couple of minutes ago. And we got into the roughing the passer calls we NFL today, basically had quadruple down and said, look we're gonna continue to call. The roughing the passer penalty is the way they have been called Aaron Donald grad Kirk cousins in the final minute and a half spun around and threw him to the ground. And there was no penalty flag thrown. I was kinda surprised at that. I I saw it in real time. I don't feel like we've got a bunch of replays up in court. As a game. Moving pretty quickly. That clear for using body weight situation. You know, the way he displays. Kinda let them to the side. So I I don't think it's the narrative of somebody quite the to play Matt hits that were called the wants to rob pain in that same game washes Saint rebate from the weekend that you know, they set the album's cleaning. Dirtier some of that huge hits that were flag. So I don't know that it falls into that category. With the larger reality hit the league isn't quarter for Thurston. And as much as we talk last season right about down ratings down. Nobody's watching the game because the Trump because of. So that helped me was, you know, Shawn Watson went down in Houston. Came on lockable Aaron Rodgers went down and creepy. Packers became unwatchable. You know, it happened. If a bunch of places. And it was ugly. And but we need to understand this quarterback driven. And the owners were the guy stupid to keep protecting these guys Ford Ford more. I don't want to pay somebody twenty five million dollars a year to miss the season because somebody three hundred sixty pounds flop on top of them. And that's that pendulum really number. I I mean, maybe incrementally a little bit over the years. But but not to a degree to where they're willing to roll back. You know a point of emphasis put him play. Twitter at Jason lockenfora.
