Ravens, Cam Newton, Michael discussed on CBS Sports Radio
Dinosaur fast dinosaur, muscular. Over. Bill can make guys miss. A very unique. Quarterback in this league. Only one item. Face against big quarterback. Big band. Breakdown. Cannons. Mason facing player. I like it. I like the unique metaphor for one Cam Newton. He's a dinosaur, but it really fast dinosaur and physical and tough and muscular, and then there was a windstorm. But even that could knock over the dinosaur. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Now this time tomorrow night there won't be a baseball game. Instead, we'll have the start of week eight. And then we'll get you set for the bulk of the football weekend going to be some good stuff. But let's take some more calls here. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. Who are the strangest bedfellows in sports? Michael is listening. Where are you listening? Michael actually Virginia driving truck under the right now. All right. Thanks so much for listening. So who are the strange bedfellows in sports? I was gonna go with Michael, Jordan. Denis Rodman, but I have to go where Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin. Yeah. That's a good one. It worked. Yeah. I did work and then you throw in geo Zander. So god. Troy Aikman who's Mr. straight and narrow and then you're Michael Irving or the playmaker. And. Issues but jazz three Super Bowl wins. Who cares if it's odd if it works if they both have the same goal, and they're willing to come together to work with somebody who's not like them. Then what does it matter and sometimes those kinds of odd relationships or to people who are put together in a situation that you know, in professionally that they would never maybe find themselves in personally, they bring out the best in each other. Oh, yeah. Let me just look at the Yankees in the sovereignties. I will take your word for it. Why did you take care? All right. Thanks, michael. Steve is listening at Ohio. Steve welcome to after hours. CBS sports radio. I Amy how you doing? I'm good. Thank you. Good. I got Muhammad Ali in our. Did cosell. Do his fights. Did Cosell announced his fights. Yeah. Those little before your time. Sorry. But still just knowing what I know of the two men who both departed the they they look on the surface, and what appeared to be completely opposite. They were definitely complete. Oh, we lost Steve. But yes, say Muhammed Elian Howard Cosell other than having really big mouths and working in the world of sports well to they have in common. Let's talk to Tony who's in West Virginia. Tony welcome to after hours CBS sports radio. Hey macron. Sure. Point if I may rich for the ravens as a quick point about the same, sir. Thanks so much that was at the game. And. Hey sense is really been over the last three years the ravens fan head coach Harbaugh. The number one issue with that with that loss. People are taking is and again, I was there. Everyone in the stadium basically school evening. Call timeout because they lined up to kick that extra point was that they were rushing still had one time in Saint overloaded. The flu yard standing on one side at something just didn't feel right everybody instantly. Call. Coach all but it is what it is. But I feel like okay if Justin Tucker felt like he was rushed and felt like he wasn't ready pro he's his responsibility at the same time. How many other of those two hundred and twenty three consecutive point after attempts. Do you think the situation wasn't quite perfect wind was blowing guys were rushing? Maybe it didn't feel right. I mean, it's it's a gimme it's still if I could lay up in basketball, it's still something he could do in his sleep probably with his eyes closed. So. Yeah, I mean, I get what you're saying. If it's a long field goal. And if Justin felt like things weren't right, or you know, something that was going to take away from his kick. He could have. But there's no way he's going to use that as an excuse. No, absolutely not. But I mean take the time to regroup again. I agree with you, Justin talkers obsessional. So if he thought that he should have. But John Harbaugh it's moments like that that happened, you know, to like every not Harbaugh's fault that Tucker miss. I'd kick you gotta call time telling you from the. The flow of the game the way everything's sought after musical touchdown. It was almost as everybody was saying. Whoa. Slow slow down slow down all time out. But it just didn't happen that way. I wouldn't think that it would. I mean considering that you'd want to get that point of the board as quickly as possible. So that you could make sure the game was tight and send it into overtime. Right, right. That's fair point what with Carolina I talked about this game. I think the ravens defensive line will cause issues for Cam Newton and players like, Eric wedge. Jefferson. More war ended up being a good position to make plays the way to to get a tough victory on the road. You know, maybe it scores twenty four to twenty or twenty four to seventeen. All right. Thanks so much. Tony. Appreciate your phone call. Yeah. I feel like this particular game. The ravens defense has played. Well, now early on the eagles looks great. Carson Wentz looks great in that game. I remember going back to two week number six and Thursday night football for the eagles that I felt like it was maybe a turning point for them. Because finally the offense looks so comfortable and Wentz looked like he was in a position to just be back in that flow that earned him MVP conversation last year before he got hurt. Philly is up seventeen nothing early in the fourth quarter and the Panthers start cooking. And they get those three touchdown drives in a row. Meanwhile, the eagles stumble and Carson said, I'm not really sure what happened. We took our foot off the gas and they had a pair of points. I think one of them was a three and out the other one was maybe a handful of yard. They maybe got one first down. And then the fumble, which of course, was the the game clincher they are. But he looks so comfortable most of the game. So if the painters are gonna win sorry Panthers. Yes. A pay there's but I was referring to the ravens. The ravens are gonna win this game. They need to get Cam Newton out of his comfort zone. Of course. You wanna make life difficult? You wanna be getting comfortable for him? And you want to make sure that you don't take your foot off the gas. If you get in a position to win. I feel like that kind of a quarter that the Panthers just had in coming back against the eagles can really galvanize a team and can be a springboard for them. So we'll see if they use it moving forward coaches their bus tight. Not to mention you've obviously got a very competitive NFC south now, it's the same for the AFC north where the ravens are talking about the Panthers. They're trying to keep up with the faints who've won five consecutive games. And of course, one of them was that last one was against the ravens, but the Pacers are a game back at four and two. Meanwhile, in the AFC north with every team losing last week except for the Steelers now, it's Pittsburgh with that tie. That has moved to the top of the north.
