"So, uh, look, I really think that's a team that can win 10 games this season and they're going to get To free space is against the Texans in all likelihood, and I do think to tighten that I I like the Julio Jones edition. I just think there's too much turnover on that defense. I don't think but do pre is a difference maker. I think the Titans slide back, and I think the Jaguars maybe end up making a run in the wild card spot here and then obviously you have the biggest question, Mark. Maybe in all of football with Carson Wentz in that division. Yeah. So if the Titans take a slide back, the Titans were in the championship game two years ago. Then they drifted back a little bit, and the bills jumped into that spot. Um Who steps into that role. If we're talking the hierarchy, the F C. I think the Chiefs are at the top. Yep. Do you plant the bills at number two. Or do you put the bills in a group at number two or what is it after the Chiefs for you? My my cowardly answer is I put the bills atop a group at number two. I think the the bills. I put the Colts up there. I do Believe in Carson Wednesday. I think he does bounce back. Maybe not too M v p levels but to Quality starter levels, and then I would put I would put the Ravens up there. But the Steelers up there. I'm not a Browns believer. If someone wants to argue the Browns are in that second tier class, I'll put them up there. To me. I think they're going to slide back a little bit. I don't think the defense is quite ready. I don't know if I think Baker's a quality starting quarterback. I don't know if he's you know, sort of sort of a franchise changing guy there at this point. And I I keep an open mind if the Chargers are going to make a run here, they have the quarterback. I know they're sort of talking. They're like, you know, we're not quite ready yet. I think that's just kind of what you say you to keep expectations Object. They sign a bunch of veterans two off seasons ago. They have the quarterback in place. They have a very sharp young coach. I could see that team, uh, putting themselves in that sort of second tier top challengers to the Chiefs conversation. Very Grambling joining us in the Western Holland. Alright, you're going to convince me on the Steelers. I was selling the Steelers at 11. And so last year and Roethlisberger he had a good half against the Colts. Right? A good second half against the Colts. Can they find answers on offense this year? That's that's the question. You know, you believe in the coach you believe in the defense and yes, See, we get out of the offense last year with that office. It's just really fast in a letter that offense they showed up early in the season. They handle this horizontal stuff going on all this priest that motion Stuff they never, ever ever did with Ben Roethlisberger and I think it costs and teams off guard earlier they had some success, and they just kind of never. They never built out from it. It just stayed quick game all year. We kind of saw a couple of times going to see it. Whether it's a Colts game. Even that playoff game that debacle they had against the Browns. You still saw. Okay, well, Ben can do some some of the extend the play big place stuff. It's just a question of how frequently they go to that well, because obviously they're very concerned about him taking hits. So can they find that makes Kamat Canada who is now the offense coordinator there. Can he find that mix of risk speaking with them throughout the season, and then maybe you flip the switch and sort of unveil the entire thing Come December or January. Whenever you have to roll it out. I'd be. I'm cautiously optimistic about what they're going to do offensively this year because I think they did realize last year. Okay, well, we need to start expanding this thing. We can't just sort of sit back and do the quick strike and trust that it's going to work for 17 weeks. One team. We didn't mention this division in Cincinnati. Who, you know, Joe Burrow had a very interesting rookie season. There were games He looked legit, like Justin Herbert thrown at all over the place, and then he had some rough ones. I mean, Baltimore ate him up, but I mean Baltimore a lot of people up and they made the bills offense. Look, you know not as good as it as it was against other teams. What's your feeling on Cincinnati this year, adding Jamaar Chase he and Borough of course, would have a connection. They already have pretty good weapons. The offense. Zach Taylor looked like things came together a little bit last year before Borough end up getting hurt, and he looks to be on track to make a full recovery and be ready. Do they have any chance there? Or is this just a slow kind of burned for them? You think I I think it's still a year or two away. I think they're gonna be fun to watch. Look, I I love Borough I think Burrow is is going to be in some M V P conversations in the next 5 to 10 seasons here, Uh, it seems like they're in a constant rebuild defensively ever since Marvin Lewis left, and I don't think it's ready yet. They're just not very good up the middle, and that's it's just It's going to be Joe Burrow is going to have to put up 35 points every week. I don't think he's quite ready for that type of thing. It's a fun female. If I was a Bengals fan, I'd be excited about what they're putting together there. But it's just not ready to compete with these, uh, within after that. Is a lot deeper than it was a year ago. I think It is a debate have seen will finally bring around to the bills, so expectations here in Buffalo are high. You know, it's about matching up against the Chiefs. But of course, there are a lot of other teams to beat along the way and to and to try and win the division, which I think every bill span is expecting them to win the division, so What do the bills due to take the next step? No, we're in Bizarro world. Now. You're not that worried about the offense going forward. Look, Josh Allen, I think will end up having his. You know he's still a little bit streaky. I think it'll have his off days and you just live with that, and he's going to play at a near MVP level. And I think you're you're fine with that. I think it's very, uh, great news. They kept that on entire offensive line intact. I know they wanted a tight end didn't get one. I really don't think that's a big deal. Ones all said and done. Maybe they're still in the Earth's Derby. I don't think that really is a difference maker. At this point, it's all about what the defense is. And you know if you I don't want to. Deep dynamic leaks too much, But the sort of short story is Everyone wants coverage..

Wait a minute? Oh, sorry. That's it a lot. I was just taking it in my head. Sorry inside voice. Andy didn't mean I didn't mean to come right out and say that, but Yes, it will be another game.

This now is played in 17 weeks because only 16 games goes to get off week by week.

"So it's just the luck of the draw like some games are amazing and some are not and that's just how football works. But again, I also recognize that you have 17 weeks plus a whole playoff series plus then again, two more weeks of hype the hype cycle the height train leading up to a Superbowl is completely ridiculous. And if you if you have a crazy high expectation, it's never actually going to live up to with the expectation you give it. Mateo writes and says hey Zack. Just wondering if with this win using Tom Brady is the greatest athlete ever in any sport. I personally do considering how difficult it is to win them all of win-win it all in football. And because he now has more Super Bowl wins than every team in the NFL. Yeah. So Tom Brady has seven Super Bowls the Patriots out six the Steelers home. He's got more Super Bowls by himself than any other franchise individually does the NFL that's unbelievable a home size. One. Tom Brady has seven. I don't know how Mahomes is ever going to catch Tom Brady First share like greatest athlete ever debatable. He's not the greatest like physically greatest athlete ever. He's definitely a test taking advantage and mastering their craft. He's for sure the greatest leader we've ever seen look at Antonio Brown. For example, Antonio Brown would not work with any other team with any other quarterback. He makes a bee work at kind reminds me of you know, LeBron made Kyrie Irving. Work for a while in Cleveland and he got sick of it and booted Kyrie Irving out and they they already them. So I think the reason why it's on Brady is the greatest athlete a good leader. We've seen a long time. She gave Tampa Bay. Hope Tampa Bay. They they brought in Tom Brady and they believe from that day on we can win a Superbowl. He brought hope to that franchise. He believes in his teammates. They they really appreciate belief. I think you got the best out of the people around him and he works incredibly hard. He's very detail-oriented. So he's definitely the most Persistent hard-working detail-oriented great leader in sports would ever seen I.

"GonNa talk more about a buy low sell high in the next episode in the AFC at the end of the AFC AFC episode the Seattle Seahawks. I'm excited about Chris Carson and the role in the past game what concerns me as he's fumbled. I believe twice vice already this season and he's very time man three hundred and he's been inefficient. I mean he's he's like under four yards a carry by a pretty wide margin. I'm not going to overreact to that after two weeks but one of those was against the Bengals who we're one of the worst running back last year then got absolutely shredded by three undrafted free agents on San Francisco anyways Rashad Penny started to creep into Chris Carson's workload a little bit last week. Do you have concerns about about where we're at with Chris Carson. I think it was promising that after he lost a crucial fumble deep in steel in seahawks territory last week they they went back to him or fourth in one carried pretty much immediately after that on their next on the next session in the executed so that gave amy a little bit of a sigh of relief but yeah I started to get worried I mean Rashad Penny played more than he normally would have played last week and he had a huge thirty seven yard. Just rocket rocket launcher run offer type intact you mean I'm not terribly worried about Chris Carson but I'm certainly more worried about him than I was last one other thing about Seattle I saw I mean metcalf is dominating over Gironde. Brown and Brown is out there at Tom but not getting any targets and Russell wasn't likes throwing to decay came back half even though Deke metcalf if you look at his next Gen stats route sherie all just like left side straight up the field which is fine because he can win that way. I mean that's just that's how he wins and so we were on Evan was on tire. Lock it big time and I think you know it's GonNa keep flipping and flopping. They're all we need to guard Deacon Caffeine to guard Tyler Lockett. I mean I'm still optimistic about Kiki metcalf having some huge games this year. It's just so inefficient so efficient when you're catching passes from Russell Wilson yeah that's Tau. That's exactly how he was used. At Ole Miss Yep only played on one side of the field only played on the left side of the field and you just run goes and Nikkei occasional screen and that's what he did and I kinda liked it. The seahawks are doing that. They're like we're not. GonNa ask you do anything different. You know we're we're going to ask you you what you are comfortable doing because we've got other versatile players will definitely by the way coming up for them. Huge Tyler Lockett I mean he you know he had like what seventeen eighteen. PBR points this last game career high ten catches it was Kinda. Tilting didn't break any of those big play because that's what Tyler Lockett it does. I mean seventeen yard catch last season but he ate kinda like we anticipated on. He had even despite not breaking breaking big-play had a big fantasy day in the box score but yeah Russell Wilson that was one of the best games I have ever seen him play. That's not even exaggerating. A next Gen stats had him getting the ball out in one point eight seconds the fastest time that they have recorded in an individual game since two thousand sixteen he was just on point point ripping up that man coverage defense of the steelers okay. The team that everybody wants to talk about is the Tampa Bay bucks because a lot of people are rostering Howard on their season-long team in. OJ Howard has only run around on forty five of Genus Winstons seventy five dropbox came -brate eight has run around on thirty one and so- Bruce Arians doesn't use tight ends twitter out. Evan is out there taking victory laps. They're saying we win. You See we knew it. Sarah doesn't use his tight end. Jay Howard isn't being targeted isn't running routes. what do we have to say to the J. Howard owners right now I mean. Oj Howard just play like crap in the first game. He lost a fumble and end zone drops. Pass got a penalty finished with thirty two yards on five targets and then on on the quick turnaround. You'll want to Thursday. I mean they don't have time to game plan. They won walk through before the game. He wasn't involved involved in the passing game. Plan and Jameis Winston did not have a lot of attempts. It was like eight and Barber Peyton Barbara game so the end so when you understand like what what led up to that you can understand that. OJ Howard why out Jay Howard was zero in week two. I think that will you do with him in week. Three is if you can't find a better option like going off the top of my head. I mean I'd probably look it will d'isly over him. I you know I'd start during waller over him. Vance McDonald was a guy that might have been dropped opt in by some fickle owners week one. I would certainly pick him back up talk about how he was very very likely abouts back in that week two game. I don't know this is probably week. Suggestions going off the top of my head. Read the Max Discount for sure for any ideas but I think that you just treat him as a boomer bus guy right now because he's on kind of in the Doghouse a little bit. I mean that's how Bruce Arians is talked about him like he's got to play better. We're not gonNA involve him in the passing game responding pulling the ball in the end zone like it's not like. OJ Howard isn't a talented dot com. That's not in doubt. It's played like Shit Yeah. I would disagree. I maybe I'm more likely to go down with the ship I would play. OJ Howard at home against the giants over we'll disley and probably over ver- Darren Waller but I I've been prone to get too stubborn with guys that I liked before the season but yeah I think on a long week they're gonNA find a way ready to get Jay. Howard more evolves speaking of a long week. We got a lot of questions from people that WanNa of James is still going to be a viable starting quarterback going forward again long week home against the giants this would be a prime spot to me for Jamieson this gate in this scheme to really have a pop off game I would be sticking with James. What do you think of it. Yeah I mean the situation. Our is just like I am willing to kind of like. Give a guy a wait and see week on my bench and try something else and then if the dude shows up with good usage and good production like I don't kick myself for benching him. I'm just like okay. I'm GonNa roll with the next week. You know like that's that's like kind of my process in situations like that with James. It's it's still like Kinda is still kind of like he's a fringe still just because there are so many good quarterback options for showing me all of them at our disposal exposal. I mean this is we have not even hit any bi weeks yet so he's fringy you know and I mean you're certainly not playing over like Dak Prescott or Russell Wilson enter or anybody like that so it just comes down to your options pat. We have one of the best rankers in the business. He's really gonNA help you able to sort through all that I mean he's finished top. Five in Benghazi pros rankings in what three of the past five years okay by the way I moved to the Washington the last time I did want to note that Chris Godwin is now more expensive on both draft Kings Fan Dan. Mike Gavin just wanted to put that out there yeah. I mean like like last week. I just wanted to say I was the first one so let everybody know that Chris Godwin was actually the bucks best receiver okay The Washington redskins. I mean there's not a lot to say here. I mean term maclaurin looks like a legit very good player and he is being used in a way that what if you had better quarterback play and better scheming and just a better offense around him he's being used in a way that would be very exciting all that said it's still going to be a week to week battle for. Terry maclaurin just because he he plays for the Redskins. That's about all about all I had on them anything on the Redskins it was it was fine. The early Adrian Peterson was fun but it ugly real real quick and applying the bears. No thanks all right that is going to do it for this.

"As an early season starter you know and was a guy that we kind of knew going to have to work his way into a feature back role and like you said he has not done that has held onto the football which was a problem for him at Penn State but he's not finishing through final contact. He's bouncing too many runs outside. You know he's trying to get used a to the you know the running scheme and is the overall flow of the offense and you know they had some offensive line. They've also lacked offensive. The blind continuity Jason Kelsey center came out of a last week's game for instance in They've they've had to juggle some guys up front so okay. Everything is not clicking for their running game. He is playing the most in the back of he's still getting the most opportunities right now. You've you him as an or before under under bitch I was optimistic are optimistic but I was hopeful that would have coleman down for the forty niners. Matt Brito would become not fifty fifty sixty forty or seventy thirty or you know God forbid seventy five twenty five over where he mostaert and Jeff Wilson by what is game was close in week two when it wasn't close for that long but through two and a half quarters when it was reasonably close Mabry to thirteen touches Komo Stare at Eleven Jeff Wilson to and Breda was shredding average like ten point five yards per carry something totally insane so that was a little bit frustrating waiting for me still like mabry smashed play in season long. I just can't give him more than I don't know. Fifteen touches in a game had his running back thing working out. Is there any chance for Brita to get twenty touches in a game I. I don't think they want him there. I mean look the the duties when he came out of school. Georgia's governor and he was like aren't eighty four pounds so I am going to continue to like him. I'm as an RB to play but for him to really get into rb. One rains like it's can't take kind of like you know vote. Go Good Fortune. Injuries injuries are not good fortune but it might take another guy getting hurt and by the way if you haven't already dropped Heaven Coleman I would just just just do it because he's got a high ankle sprain which is typically a four six week injury and when it comes back but he's not gonna take this backfield away from mostaert upstairs in Breda Jeffrey wells on I do anticipate that continuing to be a three man committee the receiver core you know this is a really frustrating situation relation because they've got five guys playing almost the exact the same number of snaps is like the number one receiver in terms of snaps was at thirty four more than the number five receiver was at like twenty two in week two so it's a big five man rotation. Deebo Samuel he it was amazing in this week to game. I loved the way that they used in the got him going on like jet sweeps at end around you know big passed down the middle some some stuff along the sidelining. They were using him everywhere but he was the number. Four receiver in terms of snaps played in week two so these guys are just..

What's up man. Finally the Eli era is over. I would get a chance to have some good football back. In the meadowlands released from one team that plays the meadowlands. The jets browns game was a disaster by the jets an offensively will see that eighty nine yard touchdown right and Greg Williams fake glasses wearing is though is good greg. Williams is such a Dork orcas crazy okay. We need to get into it here too. Broad a ton of injury news a ton of it. We also learned a ton more about these teams about these players also had manning benched as you mentioned so we thought it would be good to go team by team once again just like last week this episode episode seventeen will be the NFC NFC and is free just a small sliver of all the content slash information that we're putting out on week to week basis behind the pay wall and established to run episode eighteen will cover the AFC and we'll also take some subscriber questions so for anyone out. There listening wasn't signed up yet. We have a monthly option out there. We do have a matchups rankings waiver wire only option out there getting there okay let's get into it with the NFC where to start with the Arizona cardinals and and Yeah Arizona's had some difficult spots is to start the season. I think Detroit's defense. I think is reasonably solid. Obviously playing at Baltimore is difficult. Christian Kirk had a nice game would top the Bilo model had a really Nice Nice game twenty points at two percent ownership what stands out to me though Evan cuyler Murray's running usage and it's as if he's not even taking the rushing lanes is that are there. I mean if you told me murray had seventeen rush yards through the first two games. I would say you're absolutely insane. Is that a fluke will. Kylo Murray's rushing numbers increase as we move on here. I definitely think that he is not comfortable yet running the football in the NFL which I mean I don't blame him. He's like the smallest do on the field every time he lines up up. It'll come. I think that it'll become more comfortable after he breaks breaks a couple but right now. I don't think that we can make any assumptions in terms of his district projection regarding his his rushing usage each week to week anything else on Arizona. We got a scare with David. Johnson's risk looks like he's GonNa be okay. Yeah got a scare with David Johnson's wrist Christian Kirk hit. He was the the number one wide receiver in Josh Rooms Myers air yards by low model exclusive to establish the run dot com this year big hit went from what four thirty two in week one to six for one fourteen to lead the cardinals in week two so we will take that W we'll take the haters w haters out there okay the Atlanta Falcons men the big thing about me as I was so tilted that this game was not on the main slate just a perfect setup for Matt Ryan Julio Jones Calvin Ridley Kevin. Really to me a guy that I was trying trying to be high on in the preseason. It's going as expected. I think sixteen targets in two games as expected Evan is this devante Freeman disaster. Mr And it's been tough the eagles very good rush defense the week one game up in Minnesota got away from them quickly and other really tough spot but Smith is playing more her than I expected and the run game is struggling. I think as a whole more than I expected. Everybody wants to know what they should be doing with devante Freeman yeah and the Falcons lost. Is there a starting first round guard Chris Lindstrom's who have foot fracture on they've had to play some musical chairs offensive line their first round right tackle gala mcgarry was in and out of the game on Sunday night so they're often in the in he was out for most of the almost the entire preseason due to heart surgery taking so they have not had continuity on the offensive line. We've gone up against two of the best defensive fronts as you mentioned the eagles and the Vikings now they're facing facing a colts team that has really struggled in run defense so far and gives up a ton of production in the passing game to RB's devante. Freeman has really only made one good play so far this year and it came on a twenty nine yard shovel pass on Sunday night against the eagles where he got tackled inside the five. The narrative might be a little bit different. If you scored that touchdown fourteen touches to Smith's six he's he's playing sixty. percent of the snaps does at forty so he is the league. He's not a workhorse back. He's not a BELCO. Back is not a feature back is the lead back in a running running back by committee and we need to adjust down expectations but I do think that he's a good start this week. In season long in daily fantasy probably just not not enough usage. Let's go to Carolina because it's clear to anybody with two is that Cam Newton was playing injured man. I Love Cam. I thought CAM would have a big year year this year getting back from the shoulder. Now it seems he's having a foot injury. he looks withered and I've seen you know speculation out there while they use cam like a running back right right like. Cham played like a running back. Maybe his career will be short like running backs was and I hate to see that because cam is just such an awesome player an awesome fantasy player but now he's is questionable. I mean that we're recording this Tuesday afternoon. The word out of Carolina today was man. It looks shaky for Cam to play in week three if cam plays can we start him and if not do you have any thoughts for the people on Kyle Alan because we didn't see a lot of Kyle in the preseason this year because they used used will greer a little bit more but yeah what's going on with Cam and Carolina quarterbacks. I mean based on the news that we have and we're recording this Just I in the early afternoon on Tuesday trying to get it out. There for people doing waiver runs. I mean CAM is real close to droppable right now in season long. I I was actually going to look at him. As a a contrarian daily fantasy tournament play this week but he reinjured his foot and he wasn't a practice on Tuesday coming off the long week in I mean based on the information. We have right now like I'm not expecting them to play in week three. Maybe that'll change by the time comes out or later in the week but yeah I like I. I'm I'm worried about his health now. What about what about Kyle Allen. Do you have anything that people on Kyle Allen. Yeah I mean he played really well. In a week seventeen spot start last year he I remember he was a huge huge highschool recruit that kind of bounced balanced around a little bit in college and we didn't see much of them this preseason because they played will greer so much but I mean i. I think that Kyle it might be a little bit better than we think but it's still real real dicey for. Dj More Curtis Samuel Greg Olsen Christian McCaffrey you certainly would much much much rather other have a healthy keenum out there or even eighty five percent jam than talent and we're going to talk about a bunch of these backup quarterback situations as we go along through these team gene by teams because there's a lot of playing with new and backup quarterbacks. I do think I I would agree with that Evan. Kyle Allen is one of the better ones that stepping begin to a job doesn't mean he'll be nearly as good as Cam the Chicago Bears Evan. I thought it was notable. That Montgomery's as you said started to increase of week one. He got sixty seven percent of the running back carries. He also got three targets. I'd seems like maybe David Montgomery is separating Nice and early from my Davis that's encouraging obviously going to to Denver. I was not a great spot. They will have better spots going forward. What's your outlook on on the bears backfield yeah big step forward for David Montgomery we had him in the shy away forty this year he just just really has gotten to go in and I don't think you will I mean it was just such a big hit to him that David Montgomery and Mike Davis can catch at whereas in the last last year he was critical competing for running back targets with Jordan Howard who literally can't catch so that was always going to be a really big hit that trubisky he has been an absolute disaster and he's finally going to get although he has faced with difficult match ups. I mean Green Bay's looking like a stud defense and at at Denver against Vic Fangio was never going to be a good spot for him. He does face Washington new read so hopefully he can perform a little bit better Josh Room. Not Josh Norman has just looked like toast and Allen. Robinson is still playing well but yeah I mean. There's not a whole lot to like right now. In Chicago out of outside of Allen Robinson Dave Montgomery yet Josh Norman is just done and Quinton Quinton Dunbar. I was reading today might not be able to play this week or anytime in the foreseeable future either for the redskins secondary. I mean the secondary one that I want to attack unfortunately I I I would actually want to play trubisky Allen Robinson stacks but it is not on a main slate this week. Dallas had a bad injury on a guy hi that we both really like Michael Gallup went down looks like he's GonNa miss two to four weeks with some type of job. I believe however that does bring into play. Devon Smith and this is one of the waiver Abra guys that I want to talk about because I was impressed with Devon Smith in the preseason man. I played him a bunch former second round. Pick of the jets had some really bad injury luck but he looks like he has all his speed back and Dennis Smith was a flat baller in preseason get to play with deck and I could see him playing snap opposite. Amari Cooper and I don't think people are like Oh. What about round the COP. I don't think mccombs role really changes. The one who's getting the role change. Here is Devon Smith so oh yeah what do you think about David. Smith is a waiver at yeah exactly so Randall COBB has been like eighty nine percent slot and Michael Gallup through a two games only had one catch for eight yards in the slot. This not really necessarily situation where Randall Cobb is going to get elevated. I think it's just going to be a situation where Devon Smith jumps in one for one into the Michael Gallup role. I think Amari Cooper because he plays outside could benefit Michael Gallup was leading the team in yards in targets through two games has been great but I think that Amari has a chance to be even greater debit. Smith is going to be really really interesting in week three because we're GONNA have saving Howard on Amari Cooper and Devon Smith is gonNA have chances against like Jamaal Wilkes in Eric Rope who have been just getting absolute destroyed opposing wide receivers and we'll talk about this kind of stuff much much more on Friday but but Devin Smith is a priority waiver at especially if you need someone to play right away in week three I think is going to be I think he's a wide receiver three starter immediately. We'll be talking about him as the play as the week progresses big week for team preseason this weekend actually nervous but but it's a big team preseason we're. GonNa talk about a bunch more of these guys Detroit. I didn't have a lot on Detroit. carry-ons usages bitch all we want but it is really as he's. GonNa play around fifty sixty percents of the snaps and handle about fifty to sixty percent of the running back touches unless there's an injury you know. I it just is what it is. I know people were disappointed with. TJ Hopkinson we talked about how we was going to be the best spot that Detroit would find all year facing Arizona going to overtime etcetera etcetera. I thought would be better earned the box score then he ended up being but I did expect a regression and he still is running a route on seventy three percent of Matthew Stafford's drawbacks this season you know right in line with market injury seventy four.

Lola Lola is back and she's here to deliver. Why Safety Call Joseph is Mike Writer writer? The reason called Joseph is not great survey data is because according to the raise while at and spitting spitting Zubin Black Network Call Joseph says he wants to be and I quote one of the the best players to ever play pro football intimate to me that isn't moderable because you should always want to be the best. You should always want to be the best so Joseph Live. He has only had threes in the league but his mission his clear he was drafted in the first round in twenty sixteen and he sat on the bench last season <hes> but he ended the year as the Oakland's highest rated defended according to pro football focus he got a lot of praise from Jon Gruden on he was on the little chopping block a little bit <hes> because he was facing trade rumors Ramos what but <hes> there was a light because the raiders didn't pick up any safety thing during draft and they didn't want his fifth year option official pre he contract they didn't want to because he's going to be a free agent this year but but morally in Joseph is focused on so bowl and when he quoted he said when it's all said and done I want to be one of the best place ever play the game. That's my mindset so all that on so it's all about the longevity and doing all of the little things don't WanNa get too high or too low just work hard. I mean gene we're not clear of what Gruden and Mike Mayock will will do Joseph but it may be too to his sack of size but then never has once make a broke his career because he's a about was six foot six hundred two hundred two hundred and five pounds and he is driven in focus. I like that just because the trade.
