Listen: Niners, Cardinals, Chandler Jones discussed on Gary and Larry
"Countdown to kickoff in the warm up show, forty nine pre-game. Larry Krueger, John Lund. Dennis Brown here. Fourth poor in Arinda on a perfect perfect weather data here in the East Bay as we bring in Niner football week eight in the NFL the Niners on the road against the Arizona. Cardinals the rematch of a game that we saw earlier this year. Niners one in six cardinals one in six good morning gas. We got a couple of hours to break this bad boy down and talk a little bit about a game. And of course, this up against the backdrop of Tuesday's the trade deadline and the NFL Adam Schefter already already reporting. And this to me is a surprise. The teams are showing trade interest in forty Niners wide receiver Pierre Garson that is one of many topics. We're gonna hit today. Yeah. And you know, it doesn't I mean if you have the opportunity right now, I mean the way this team is and the lack. Lack of weapons on that offense of side. I mean, if someone's shown interest, you know, why not explored and see what's out there. If if it's a player draft pick or or whatever it might be. But you know, if you got something out there, you you mean, I think any opportunities you have with the forty Niners. John Lynch needs to to investigate thoroughly. Yeah. I think you will. Absolutely. And I think on both sides. I don't think they're like in the next three weeks. They've got one win teams the giants. The raiders. Those teams are breaking down the rosters. And I'm not saying that the the forty Niners are in a great position. But they do have a lot of injuries. I think it's just like last year. I think that if somebody is gonna come free whether to disappointing former first rounder that you're looking to pick somebody up and in the case of our son, which Schefter said look no offence to him because he's a good guy. And he's good leader. He just hasn't been good with the forty Niners. He was hurt last year. He's had a lot of drops and been hurt this year eight just doesn't work, and if you look at his cap number for next year, which is well over. Nine million dollars. He's not going to be on this roster next year. So get something for them right now because you're going to cut him in the off season in Dennis, you know, better than I do leaderships. A big deal all these kind of things, but when you were winning six, you're not going anywhere. Now having said that we heard this stuff about chairman this week and Kyle Shanahan came out Richards, not going anywhere. I think kids situations totally different. You have a very young defense. I think the Richard Sherman is a valuable guy unless somebody's gonna blow me out of the water and give me like a one for Richard Sherman, which nobody is then I'm keeping Richard Sherman on this team. But Pierre Garson he's free to go. Yeah. No, I agree with all that. The thing with Garson. Is you got reps that you need for Kendrick born you got reps that you know, you wanna give today comes back today. And I I think they've loved to give him some reps. And if he can stay healthy now some of the headlines today patriots this came out in two different reports. See if you can connect the dots on this one insider had patriots are looking for an impact wide receiver at at the deadline. The Rams and the Packers are both looking for pass rushers teams have been calling the new wing of the New York Giants bat Odell Beckham junior what's related there. Is it possible that New England is talking to New York about Odell Beckham junior? So the other headline this morning guys is the Browns could fire Todd Haley, very soon. And of course, we already have a game. That's a final this morning. Phileas beaten Jacksonville twenty four eighteen in London. Three touchdowns for Carson Wentz to two different receivers hurts Goater and Smallwood all scoring few fantasy owners, but remember the time. Jacksonville Jaguars were a power. I mean just last season. Championship. And everybody thought they were the comer then the defense was just edible. They've given up. A lot of big plays on on that defense and the Jacksonville. You know? I I tell you it it all sports are going this way. We've talked about it on on Oliver shows about the NBA and the pace of the NBA and how fast it's going and everything. It's just scoring scoring scoring scoring scoring. And I don't know if you can have a great defense anymore. We we looked at last week New Orleans played Baltimore. And we'll that thing ended up being an under liens scored late a couple of times in Baltimore is the best defense in football. So it's it's tough to be a defense right now. Because you can't hit the quarterback can't hit the receivers, you know, they're basically trying to strip and I know we're going to get into the turnover battle as far as the forty Niners in their struggles over the last few weeks, but it's it's it's really hard playing defense right now it is because you can't break down and hit guys your helmet. And then of course, there's no intimidate quarterback. You're not the one thing the forty Niners have to worry about today is that they lost the game earlier this year to the cardinals. In a game. They dominated because of turnovers and the same thing is going to happen today. If the game play plays out the same way, I really think of the better team. I think we saw last time. And I think they're gonna show it again today, but it's going to come down to not just turnovers but turnover margin. So that's really it. You better be plus two at the end of the day. If you're minus two the numbers show. It's very difficult to win their minds one year. Seventy eight percent loser alone twelve in the last week. We went on the road it. I'm sure you know, that it just makes it all the more difficult the cardinals had one play weeks ago, and we just watched one play. Now you look at the cardinals. Or you know, they're coaching change in other avenue offense coordinator, they've got a quarterback that you know, when he came out of college UCLA he was the most NFL rating quarterback. And we see that whatever that means not because he's not and he's not he he is a first year guy. And he's a guy that you can get after. And he's going to give you some gifts. Yes. I mean, Denver just embarrassed. I mean watching it from the first snap. He is a young quarterback. He's a quarterback that you can get into his head, and you can beat this guy. He's going to give you some gifts. So you know, hopefully, the forty Niners have a game plan set together defense has to get after that that front four to gotta get after this. Because you know, he is a young guy. You can you can get into Ted. Let me just remind you. Okay. We all know this, but it was October seventh and a lot of things have happened since then. So maybe people will forget the Niners lost twenty eight eighteen throw out five turnovers or K just for a second thirty three ten in first downs. Tennis seventeen on third down with the forty Niners total yards four forty seven to two twenty passing three hundred to one sixty four rushing one forty seven to fifty six time of possession forty twelve to nineteen forty eight. They thoroughly dominated the game and his dentist said there was one plate a Christian Kirk and there were five turnovers. And that was it Chandler Jones is really good knocked the ball out at another one go for a pick six. It tells you you can dominate everything. But if you turn the ball over you will lose let's talk about that for second. Because that hopefully the Niners learned a lesson in that game. Hopefully, they're starting to improve in this area. That was a game where Chandler Jones just dominated is well upfront. There was a lot of rush and he on third. He doesn't sense the backside pressure very well. I think that that we can say already just from watching. You know, what ten games herself? He doesn't sense. The, you know, the pressure off his backside in to me I'd like to see him just intentionally speed up that clock. Even if his clock is a little too fast. And he he throws. He doesn't exercise fully stunt. You know, he's get everything out of every play. That's okay. Just don't take the crushing Chandler Jones sacked that pops the ball into the air. And you got a real good chance to win, and you and you kind of you defeat that by quick throws. Draws in screens, bubble screens tunnel screens. So a guy like Chandler Jones. Just can't lineup and rush. I mean, I think you know, the word on CJ as you get some rush on he's gonna run around a little bit. He's going to stand there. He's going to take a sack or through a low ball. So if you get the ball out his hand fast, get some screens get some draws get that defense or they're not sitting you know, if you're in three point stance and your your track your tracks dance and you're coming straight to quarterback. I mean, you know, it's it's gonna make it hard. You mean if and if you can't since backside pressure you're gonna take those sacks. And we were talking to Steve Young on our show this week in the exact thing. I asked him was how does he improve ball security, and it is a skill. It is something where you have to realize in the pocket that you can't be cavalier with the ball. You gotta keep it up. You gotta keep two hands on it until you're about ready to throw you've got to be like, you said, you gotta have a clock in your head and get rid of it sooner. Because on the on his first fumble. If you watch the play Aaron. Donald gets doubled and absolutely smashed. But then rich Burg has sue one on one. He gets beat brokers is one on one he gets beat. So then he has to step up and then outside rusher hits him, but he hung onto the ball too long. You gotta decide for yourself. Whether it's an interception or fumble potential. You know what it's best right now. If I just go down, he's he's such a young guy that he feels like any tough. So he's going to extend every play and trying to get everything out of it, dude. It's second long. It's third down. I don't care if it's first down live to fight another day. His mantra today should be live to fight another day. If it's not open on the you know, the the ball that I saw through the market Goodwin. Interception. He was late. Troy hill was beaten ten yards on that play. He's open. He's open. He's not. And then he threw it. So look, I don't want to rip the guy. Eight of the twelve turnovers are his over the last three weeks. He's a young guy. But his mantra today has to be I got to play it safe. If we don't turn it over. We don't lose. If we don't beat ourselves. We don't lose. So that's the way you gotta play. And look at a guy who's doing that. Well as far as quarterback who's moving onto the next down and getting rid of the football being decisive who's doing it passed right now of any young quarterback probably Jared Goff. Yeah. He's not durable. He's not big the Rams know that he can't take lots of hits. So he drops back to pass. He looks for what he's got. And boom the ball comes out. He's not holding it standing there. Cr- having the pocket crater around him. And thus he's not taking all those unnecessary hits. And having those turnovers. I mean, the Rams have huge advantages across the board. Let's before we move on. Next segment. We'll get into a couple of different things, but the school quickly to the ram game before we move on. Give me your primary. Takeaway uniforms, are sweet and ten statue ceremony was good after that.."
