Listen: Khalil Mack, MVP And Aaron Donald discussed on Freddie Coleman Show
"So we're going to have a chance to find out a lot about the MVP race in the National Football League still wide open. Let's be awesome quarterback is going to get it when it's all said and done, but the two guys mine Metcalf, in my opinion that should get more love for the MVP race. And they play the same team. One guy is Aaron Donald the best defensive player in the National Football League. The guy on the other side is not the quarterback Jared Goff but his running back Todd Gurley. I know a lot of people though that offense believe me the Rams offense. Boy, that's crack cocaine for me. I love every sentiment. Gimme more sprinkled on my face, and I'm good to go. But as great as Jared Goff offense has been Todd Gurley makes that whole thing. Go leaning and ask football league in rushing is not anything. He can't do. From my money gonna top five players in the National Football League. But because they don't play the quarterback position. They're not gonna get any love. But those two guys the best of their positions should get more love the MVP race. But that's my perfect world. Because I know that's not going to happen in the National Football League. I I'm with you. I mean, Aaron Donald has just been destructive. He's been so impactful for that team Rams giving up a lot of points in the last three or four weeks, but Donald has been the difference maker. But other you'd go back. I don't think Michael Strahan got a vote when he set the record for twenty two and a half. One, you know. So I it's so hard for guys in that position. And to your point with Todd Gurley definitely having an MVP season. I mean, he could top what he did last year. I thought last year without seeing MVP level season the problem for girly, Donald but really for girly because this is Louise's facing to me. It's not just the team. He's on. It's not just that golf has been good in that they got all these weapons. Instead it's been such a great year for quarterbacks. They're just too many quarterbacks to pick from drew Brees to me should win it, right? If the season ended today, Patrick Mahomes could win it. I mean based on what he's been able to do does far. I'll tell you something that is going to sneak into that mix and could win. It is Philip rivers recall there, all those guys. So those guys are having phenomenal seasons. And we haven't even gotten to some of the other quarterbacks around football who played pretty well. But to me you have so many great quarterbacks. It's going to be impossible for nine quarterback to even get into the conversation. Even as good as girly and Donald had been playing Tedy Bruschi ESPN NFL analyst on NFL early on Friday. They put the question to him. Who would you take who's more important when it comes to Aaron Donald or Khalil Mack on defense? His answer was let Aaron Donald is doing a special this year. I mean, he he's in the MVP the league conversation that of course, makes me choose him above Khalil Mack. Who of course is having a great year. Also both ball savvy players not only sacking the quarterback with taking the ball away. Both our special players, but still Aaron Donald this year. Just something about real quick Malcolm in Kansas at eight eight eight seven two nine three seven seven six wants the way visit my Metcalf, Freddie, Coleman on Freddie and Fitz Simons on ESPN radio. Malcolm what you got my man. Hey, what's going on? Man. Let's see how we can say MVP candidate without saying MAC is. I mean, come on. He's totally turned the bears record around. Not. I mean the. That's the only change really made this off season an Khalil Mack. What he's done after four a practice hall of fame perform it. What about what about Mitchell Trubisky and the other side your quarterback? He's had his impact one either. Watching the bears for a couple couple of years out. I think he's a great quarterback. He's going to be a great quarterback. I should say I'll be quite there yet. He's a little rest. You got season get it. But when he gets a couple more years he's going to be a Super Bowl quarterback. But right now, he's got a Super Bowl deep. It must be. You know, what he does with it? I've been saying that one play away from making the playoff one play away from being a championship team warm player. He's totally turned around a program that was just right on the verge of being there, by the way, Malcolm Kansas. I don't disagree with you one bit. I just wanted to make sure that you understood that that quarterback in the other side has had an impact Ville MC. But to your point it is legalized robbery. Are they got that guy from the Oakland Raiders because Khalil Mack put it out there? He said I don't wanna play for Jon Gruden and Jon Gruden tried to put it out there thinking, no player is that important what I'm trying to do here in Oakland, then at the heat trades Khalil Mack. Then he's up in arms about where's the pass? I'm like, do you traded it to Chicago? What are you talking about? Where's the passwords at your passwords? You sent east cargo bears and Tim mountains point Kabila MAC has been fantastic all year long since being in the light of because when you can get a guy that can come up that corner a hundred and fifty miles an hour. Like, he can it makes a big difference. It you can have six of one half dozen the other between. Him and Aaron Donald how impact with the on their football teams. But his point is valid in terms of Khalil Mack. He's he's getting a lot more love. And he's not getting any love when it comes to MVP in the National Football League. Khalil mack. When we get to the postseason when the bears get to the postseason. He to me is going to be the most dangerous most impactful player in the entire playoffs. He's going to be the guy who could shift everything just with a couple of plays the problem with Khalil Mack and getting into the MVP conversation is that they're a bunch of really good dudes around Khalil Mack. And we know that because there have been stretches what we've seen Khalil Mack. And he hasn't been one hundred percent. He's missed games. Cal fuller. I mean roquan Smith. I mean, you got some Jackson with that defense. So Khalil Mack is the sort of alpha of that group. But make no mistake. The bears are a complete defensive unit and your boy Trubisky is out playing anybody what anybody ever thought he would do at this point in his career, by the way and also down always have company, and he throws that company aside. He doesn't get a lot of one on one match ups. They triple team double team, and he still gets to the quarterback from the middle of the defense from my. Money power for power. He may be the best player in the NFL.."
