Listen: ESPN, Dallas And Raiders discussed on Covino & Rich
"Let things play out when you talk letdowns NFC you name the teams and you're right. It's it's the Atlanta Falcons who play the Packers this weekend. That is the game of disappointments. This think of the week. Stinker ruble, Sunday on FOX. Yeah. I'm not going falcons showing up. Neither is will Greer falcons. Packers both really both fan bases thought that they could be playoff Super Bowl contenders. And both of them are sadly multiple games under five hundred Niners fans thought this year. We're back in the playoffs. Maybe Garoppolo goes down. And now, we're you know, you're hoping for a top draft pick your hoping for the one or two pick. And like you said in the AFC those that's always the positive spin of the letdown season. Who you gonna get we'll pick the Jags? And the raiders are both teams that fan bases were all high on and now it's over. But what do you think about the the one team that's in the middle there? This teams sort of in the in the middle where you could say, well, I guess the next four weeks will determine if it's a letdown or not one of those being the Philadelphia Eagles if they win if they if they beat the Cowboys they went three out of four four in a row you. Yeah. Then of course, then. Okay. If they win the division and go to the playoffs and they lose in the playoffs. Yeah. Did not you know, not returning Super Bowl. They won't be defending champs that go very far but respectable to make the playoffs. Bowl. I mean, let down to their fans for sure but still respectable season. So they could definitely pull that off. But the Minnesota Vikings who were powerhouse last year. Looks like they upgrade get Kirk cousins. And now they're a game over five hundred like if that team doesn't make any noise in the playoffs, and you could say what was it worth? All that for cousins was like I feel the worst for them and their fans because they always has to tie hopes and look like they're going to get there. But they don't so. So, hey, let's go to Matt Zona convene on rich on ESPN radio. Thanks for all your feedback. Even the haters haters mixed in with the people that love you. Oh, you bought me like one shame. They're like one good joke way from loving because why why did they hate all know, this guy told us to F off and wear a disgrace. I don't think that was Camino. He probably looked looked you up. Yeah. You gotta Hannibal face. Probably it. I'm not gonna get. Hey, rachel. If you want guy. Hey, what's going on? I don't want anyone to forget about the Arizona Cardinals. I mean, we didn't see ourselves beating like the Rams or even the forty Niners this year. But we lost the raiders it's kind of a savvy. You've got Josh Rosen. Everybody's gonna be coming really done. Anything yet? Just kind of stuck in the middle of it. You know? I think he he broke a few records gave you things to cheer about. But again, you got Rosen who who was talking real confident and people buy into that hype. But I mean who was really expecting a lot from them aside from you who's a fan. People people thought there were people that thought all the cardinals could be in that wildcard coversation if three and nine early one game better than the whole Boston. The raiders like you said just adds insult to injury. I feel you man, what is your? I mean to do the little to do a flip flip in a reverse. It flips. Yes. Right. You don't do Santa con. You don't do steaks, medium rare. You don't do you. Don't you? Don't do sushi. Brunch. You'll do anything. I mean, unless we're talking to chocolate covered pretzels that I like the flips. Okay. Well, how about you? Do the flip here for a second. Is there a team this new dance and have the energy for it? Shabani flips. It's your body for. God. Is there a team that you look at it and say, wow, this team is better than I thought because people love to harp on the bad. Right. Look look at what I just said. I'm reading the feedback and for all the people that are nice and supportive saying, hey, good to hear you guys. I'm enjoying the show. Of course, the one doofus that tells me to F off that's guy, I'm focusing on because we love to focus on what the negative negative stands out right about the positive which fan base is like, holy crap way better than I thought would you say maybe after an Owen three start? The Texans were like, oh, wow. We thought we were doomed. Now, we've won nine in a row a hundred percent one hundred percent. The chief said well, Mahomes really paid off other than the Kareem hunt being fans will remain happy this year. I mean, even if we don't go all the way, I mean, you got lots and lots of new fans and people excited about the chiefs. I mean, no one was really that exciting cheese before Senate Mahomes if anything good came out of the chief season. It's your Patrick Mahomes impression highly Mahomes. In the NFC. I guess you would say bears fans that said man this team's perpetually like a game or so over under five hundred and now all of a sudden fans that are excited. The titans fans are excited. He said he said he said before it was another team was it. I mean, I think the bears fans Dallas is on a roll. But I think the one fan base that should be a little excited for themselves. I mean, they they want a Super Bowl in the in the last handful years they lost a heartbreaker in the Super Bowl. But I really thought Seattle was falling apart. I thought I thought the wheels had come off. I thought I thought Russell Wilson was going to be a losing quarterback for the first time and their their playoff wildcard team. If ESPN. Backtrack. I mean, anything they do is is better than what they did. Somebody win one game in two years. Right. So if they have a respectable end of the season. Then yet, I mean fans are gonna be happier than they were last year. So that's our take on that. But again, I think that's this week is obviously a pivotal point to see where a lot of these teams lie. So. Enjoy that rich have you placed your bet yet. Yeah. And remember to make your bets and follow. Yeah. No FAM actually betting everything on the Dallas not on Dallas on the Denver Broncos this weekend another game that if you are a gamble manner gambling woman. How do you guys feel about Houston only being roughly four to four and a half point favorite at home versus Indianapolis. After India got shut out last week. Do you feel like they got something going on this week or you think adults also Texans? They get fired up, man. That's a good one at home by four and a half. I don't know again. Good to see exactly where the Texans are at. Division game versus a team that going in on the action. Rich, don't so max. And let's see if there's a if there's another game you like do you like Dallas at home three and a half over Philly? What he said it's a field goal game. Don't touch it. I said don't touch it. Well, any thoughts? You guys have on some of the gambling for this weekend. Some of the games some of the actions always hit us up at Covina on rich. And like I said we learned a lot today we did. And if you wanna learn more, we'll be back next week to which is great. I'm looking forward to that bunch of things I want to get to either next week on this show or maybe throughout the week on three six faction talk one zero three convene on rich. I'm gonna throw a few things out there. Just I guess people could think about so not just trash if your trash if you're if you're single, right? You're single guy. Do you still decorate your apartment, of course, you call me out these guys like Ed, I don't have any decorations up. I'm like, what are your sort of again block in your own potential here by not dressing up your place? Because you make fun of me for buying a twenty dollar Christmas tree. That's another topic for another day. But I said, look, I'm doing my best them decorate. I'm getting dressed up, you know, decorating the house. I'm dressing it up.
