Fresh update on "aaron donald" discussed on Arrowhead Pride
"What tershawn wharton was last year was an. He's a flawed player. He is not a superstar. He's not going to be that and that's totally fine. They hit on a lottery ticket. And if that means that he's situational pass rusher moving forward. That's a valuable commodity to have. And i think that's what he's going to be this year so in third down situations. If you've got chris jones on woods. Hi frank clark on the other and then in between them you've got jarran reed and tershawn wharton. That's a pretty darn good defensive line that can give some hell to office of lines even if it means chris. Jones lining up outside. Because what you're going to get with that is you're gonna get a lot of stunt some games upfront. You're gonna see you guys. Like tershawn. Warm and chris jones bouncing inside versus outside There's gonna be a lot of things. That steve's bag knowles able to take advantage of with those two guys next one another in. It'll be different is not going to be the same thing. You don't have the same. Bendy pass rusher that you would like to have on the outside and those spots. But that's never really been the guy. That speech steve spagnolo hat on the edge if you look back at his history it's mostly dudes that are two hundred and sixty five plus pound lining up on the outside and winning with bullrushes more than they're just bending the edge. Let me ask you to this do you think. Do you think aaron donald if he was strictly a defensive in and he's the best i think i've ever seen Do you think if he was strictly defensive in that he's as productive as he has been in his career. Yeah i do you think he's as productive as definitive in Yeah because i think he's the most just insanely athletically. Gifted interior defensive. Linemen that i've ever seen. I think that would translate on the inside or the outside the way that the kennedy translated with. J. j. watt in his prime you've seen. Jj watt a lot because you're down in houston He's the guy situationally the way that i think they're gonna use chris jones. I would bring up as the position that will make sense. I still think though. I know aaron donald is like i said the best. I've seen but his speed really an in in his quickness more importantly really plays where he is that changes if he's further away and and there's something to this with me. I don't know where you all stay entire math. You might be right there for me. When chris jones is right. He's the best player on this defense. Just because of his ability to russia passer and change games. There's something about the fact that hey man that guy is potentially your best defensive player. It is your best defensive player at that position and he's shown to be dominant at times when he's right at that position. Why are we going to take the chance to not have that. Same dominance at that position. There's something to the point of Of changing things up with somebody who you know at an already important spot can do damage at that spot and potentially move him to a space where you're not sure game in a game out. He can he can make. Hey that way. And that's why now as we're talking this l. I tend to agree with you. He he can't just be strictly a defensive then he came they got to take advantage of him and what he's great at what we know. He's great at is. He can get to the quarterback like that in one move and he's there. I don't know if that one move gets him home. Like i did before. So here's what i think we're gonna see. I think we're gonna see a lot of like if you're somebody who's going training camp this this fall. I don't know how much you're gonna watch lining up inside. I bet you the vast majority of his reps maybe ninety plus percent of his reps are gonna come on the outside. So everybody's going to be talking. We're going to do this. Show in august ron. We're gonna say man. Maybe he is just moving outside. Maybe this is just a permanent move. And i'm going to stay firm on this because i think what's happening is. He knows exactly how to play defensive. Tackle and steve spagnolo defense was when all of the assignments are. He knows what's required of him on any given play. He doesn't know those things that defensive and he spent like a week and a half over the course of the last two years playing. Defense of infra steve. Spagnolo learn the wraps learn what it takes learn. What the reads are whenever. You're out a defensive end. See it in live reps in training camp. Find out what this looks like. And then when you get into the season you get into the individual games spend first and second down outside and then on third and seven. Kick him inside. You'll have some options on the outside. You'll see some of chris jones on the edge. I would imagine even in pass rushing situations but even the best guy. Frank clark plays typically about sixty percent of the snaps. All of those are gonna come for him on the outside for the most part in less. It's a stunt or game. Or whatever. Up from chris jones gonna play probably sixty five percent of the snaps apprentice. Well i bet you seventy percent of those coming outside next year. Thirty percent of them are on the inside. So you're still getting those high leverage important snaps. And you mentioned a word that i think is important for him. Ron its dominance chris. Jones has moments where he just completely takes over a game. And i think you're still going to see those and most of them are probably gonna come from him at defensive tackle. I don't think this is a staff. That's just gonna completely avoid that moving forward. Yup that feels bob sunlight. Let's just keep his ass. Then and not make adjustments. And when i say that i think aaron donald would be successful outside. I'm not saying that. I think chris jones is going to be completely successful outside. I don't think chris johns is. Athletic is aaron. donald is in chris. Jones is a is a freak of an athlete. Aaron donald just unlike anything. We've ever seen in football. I i i tend to think that you know everybody's talking about it everybody's bringing it up i. It's an interesting story line. I could easily see it being closer to like a fifty fifty split where. They're kind of moving chris all around the line instead of just having him outside or just having a strictly on the interior. It's interesting. I'm just saying i mean you gotta do this. It has shown and get fifteen sacks from the inside i can dominate the super bowl and change the game in the third and fourth quarter the fourth quarter from the inside when.
Fresh update on "aaron donald" discussed on NFL Live
"With the arizona ongoing sandler jones and day wide. I thought this acquisition was. you'd taylor. jones didn't get enough respecting the nfl. For many years. And i know he was injured last year. But he is a premier. Pass rusher in the nfl. He changes games. He makes those critical type plays and he's a different craftsman at work and what he does or in the spot. I had put this list together. And i'm a little nervous about it from this standpoint. I don't know couple with video. Y'all i don't know what little florida's go do but dammit you don't make a list without air donald being on it and you're talking about people bland late so i have the la rams at number four between him and liver floyd as the pair that is going to re abic on opposing quarterback this year aaron donald understands where they are the understands the presser mount no some mcveigh he has to again so the legitimacy of his startup third coming back. Y'all and bradley chubb that will be opposite of him. And i think these guys as pure of pass russia's as you can possibly get they can be dominant in game they can take over. Games reminds me of super bowl type tandem when it was miller and demarcus ware. This is back. The dynamics have changed von older guy. Bradley tub coming in. That's the young able to get after the passer. And i mean the fangio's defense so they'll be getting after it number two j p p is sack berry yes the super boats happiest but they go and paid their throughout that playoff run. We all know how dynamic has been and also physical at the point of thanks to. He plays the run for people. I have a lot of respect for guys like that. And then when we sat barrett three six in the nfc championship. We know what he did in the super bowl he got his money and he's a sack artist and they play for boats and one last absolutely not leaf montana's with and safe young. This young dynamic will reap have the on the nfl this year. Listen you gotta determine who you're going to block and don't forget the guys on the interior of the pain. And i mean the ron painted jumping allen are no top liberal either. But this is the next wave of the young guns in the nfl chase. Young sweat devastating to opposing offenses. Especially on third down all right. Let me remind people what we got here number five. Jj watt and chandler jones at their zona number four. Aaron donald and leonard. Ford with the rams you got bradley. Chubb and von miller at number three and number two would be jp and check with the bucks and then you just saw montas sweat and chase young list. Thank you guys. What do you think who do okay. These thought one. Anyone could line up next to aaron donald and get some sacks i could honestly i gotta rush. Washington shouldn't be higher than the bucks up. sorry. I love montana. And they're really fun young. Do i think the group is excellent. But the bucks. Have the best duo to me the pairing that i would throw into the mix and i'm gonna status loudly because i feel like i don't give the steelers a lot of love lately. Tj watt and cam. Heyward cam heyward one of the most motor rated defensive lineman in the nfl and with the absence of bud dupree. He's going to matter that much more with this team. I'm cheating because i didn't say who dropped out of the house. Marcus which is Not really fair. I think cam heyward what do deserve consideration. Oh they absolutely. You know head consideration. But i thought about this too and you make a great point. How would they look without bud dupree. Like how effective will they be going forward. That's something that came into my mind. I'm trying to project. And when i project on this list montier sweating and chase young off the edge. Listen i'm with you i. We can argue this until the cows come on you. I had i had myles garrett engines damian clowney thinking that i wanna see if crime is going to be able to get to the quarterback and get him on the ground but right now man. This young duo in washington in that defense. They devastating eight meena. Who are you dropping out of the list to add those steelers guys in there. Maybe leonard floyd donald donald is the guy list without area ono right on another liz by himself right anyway this year in the nfl. You heard bucks. Gm jason life. They're back in early. May talking about. It's quarterback playing tilles fifty rating was asked until he's fifty told. Usa today quote fifty. That's long time even for me a long time. I've always said forty five with aids that i wanted to read and that was my goal. This year will be forty four so next year i'll be forty five a two year contracts. I'm going to be able to play obviously this year. God forbid anything happens but play next year and see what happens after that all right. So here's the thing. marcus. We'll see brady planet fifty hell no. I won't see him plan at fifty. I think at tom brady wins. The super bowl this year he go ride off into the sunset and led tampa bay. Do they thing. I don't think he's gonna play forty five. You get another super bowl. He's gonna shut it down. And start selling their tb twelve all over the place. It's already selling it. I think brady wants to play until he's fifty based on that. I mean even thinking about that makes me feel higher. Goodness no i. I think maybe two more years. And that's it all right. Speaking of oldster quarterbacks ryan fitzpatrick turns thirty nine the season. He's ready to try and take washington to the next level but he a short term fix or could have tenure in washington. Be a little longer than expected. Seem out there looking spry on the practice field head. Coach ron. rivera isn't ready to commit any sort of timeframe for his new quarterback. He's a big fan. He told the washington post quote. There's nothing that says ryan fitzpatrick can't be the guy for a while. If this continues to play at the level he has and with brady show and everybody that these veteran guys can do it. Just ask bill nicholson. He'll tell you then. why not. Why would we want to move on. If things go with ryan. Why wouldn't you wanna bring that guy back right. I do think what tom brady is doing. Is in rarified. Air marcus's rolling his eyes. So we get to that in just a minute. But diana i fitzpatrick viewed within the organization yellow. Those are beautiful. June glasses that ron rivera is looking through right now ray. Why not be optimistic. So every south dakota. I did a little digging on it just to find out. What's the reality in washington right now. With how they view our least how they view ryan fitzpatrick and look. I feel like this is obvious because he seems that every team that right. Oh all right all right. I'm giving her a chance. Diana is frozen officially frozen. We'll see we'll get her back all right. How do you see this right factory. Experiment working out washington because we know there can be to extremes here. Yes that's putting it lightly. I mean if ryan fitzpatrick plays like. He did last season in miami. This team wins the division. I think quite easily frankly. Well maybe that's a little bit too strong actually really hard take and then you want to back off. I'm going to do that because i do. Love the dallas office..
Pittsburgh Attorney Offers Apology After Client Mistook Aaron Donald for Attacker
"Week on Wednesday of this week, and attorney filed a criminal complaint against rans past Russia. Aaron Donald's allegedly Donald and others assaulted his 26 year old client at an after hours club last weekend. The dude was pretty beaten up. He needed 16 stitches suffered a broken orbital bone that's around your eye, a broken nose, a concussion and a sprain. Or broken arm. But thank goodness for modern technology because a lawyer representing Donald says there is video evidence refuting that claim here is Donald Attorney Casey White. The whole time, Mr Donald Aaron is being restrained. So as this fight or escalation, want call what everyone called continues. Aaron then breaks free from their strengths. And this is all on video. So I'm not making this up. He then goes to the pyre where this melee is taking place. And he starts tearing people off protecting Mr Sprigs. He actually saved Mr Sprigs from further injury. Mr. Sprague should write a thank you card to Aaron Donald for saving him Because that incident or Mr Springs is getting injured. That likely would have kept going for a least a few more seconds. Maybe a couple of minutes, But Aaron Donald saved Mr Springs. NFL nation reporter Lindsay Theory spoke to white about where the process stands. White told me this morning that a Pittsburgh police detective assented email that stated thus far there is no evidence from the video surveillance that shows Donald assaulting the victim Now. White also told me that given the evidence, which includes statements from at least five eye witnesses But he anticipates at the Pittsburgh police and district attorney will not charge Donald. As for Donald current mindset. White told me that Donald's frustrated that this incident took place and how it is since played out in the media, but adds that Donald remains confident his character and is eager to resolve the situation. The attorney representing the accuser, AB. Donald is now offering an apology on behalf of his client who said that he mistook his

"Are back first up. We have respect the biz for tom. Brady if you missed it One of the greatest clips has been put on. The internet. came out on saturday night. Let's actually play here. It takes a lot of work a lot of hard work Lot of hours go into it. It just really upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football. I didn't sleep for the past two nights because of this. I was that upset. Because i i know the passion that goes into the trophy. And how my dad and all his fellow silversmiths are so proud to make this. I personally would like an apology. Not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths But to the to the fans that was one hundred percent real. That woman actually has lost sleep over the fact that tom brady threw the lombardi trophy to his teammate. Across water disrespecting silversmiths far and wide respect to silversmith industry big cat. I think that. I think that the lombardi trophy should never be touched. It should be like that guitar. And spinal tap is not to be played. Don't don't even look at it. It should just exist in a glass stand forever in if this lady thinks that lombardi trophy was being disrespected by being thrown. She should have a conversation with some. Nhl players about what the stanley cup has been through. They you know what like me and you getting to drink out of the stanley. Cup is far more disrespectful to a trophy and tom brady almost throwing it to the bottom of the gulf of mexico. How about the fact. That gronk dented. It like a year ago. Two years ago i. I love this lady though because she doesn't have the internet because there's no way that you do that interview if you know how. The internet works she. She thinks that she just put that into a void and just shifted off and it was like i just need to get my thoughts out there. I haven't slept. It was appalling. What i saw and i just want someone to hear it. She'd she doesn't know that like she dominated saturday night and that people were laughing at her and she's utterly ridiculous and i appreciate that type of person. We just had justin herbert on twitter. Like that's people who don't even know what the internet is. Yeah and don't use it. I respect so so much. So i'm confused about the lombardi trophy. Because there seemed to be a ton of them and that lady was acting like this is the only one. This is the real one that he threw but they seem to be like mr smith's the matrix where they just show up everywhere. I see like an interview with charlie casserly on nfl network and he's got to lombardi trophies behind him in the background. What's going on. How many are there. We should actually like if anyone can get us. A couple of we need at least a few in our in our studio. I've been saying we've been because if tom brady. If that was the one lombardi trophy like the actual one that they just give you for parade and he had thrown into the bottom of the ocean. I actually think that there's a good case to be made that they should invent a new trophy and just know that the lombardi is sunk forever and now then that was named after tom brady hang it. Yeah there you go. But it's also crazy because i think she. She was essentially saying that her father made the first one but didn't make this one. She just made the first one okay. So she's offended for the first one. I would design it. I don i mean it's a football on a stand right but don't it's more than that. It's sneaky genius. Yeah none of this perfect know. What the lombardi trophy has lost a lot of time. It's lost a lot of it's sean recently. Because it's always in the logo for the super bowl. I see it too much. Yeah it's always in my face back. When the super bowl has had different logos to see the lombardi trophy was an event. It's like oh there it is. Oh i forgot what that look like. Yeah exactly it's like a big reveal. And i would have liked it if this lady had worked in like some millennial bashing to her comments where she was saying like oh now that every kid gets a participation trophy athletes don't respect trophies anymore just throwing them around like party favors right unbelievable unbelievable all right next up. Sorry not sorry. this is from. James harden is equally as unbelievable. James harden did an interview with. Rachel nichols before the nets warriors. Game on saturday night. Which by the way kyrie irving has said that james harden is the point guard so he has he's essentially said like hey there's only one ball it's james harden's ball except for when it's kevin durant ball and also when it's my ball but james harden said he is sorry for how his houston rockets tenure ended and quote said. I don't like it at all. Because that's not who i am. That is who you are. You did all those things so he said i feel like it could have happened a lot smoother a lot easier but it is what it is i does. He know that he caused all of it. Well to me. That just speaks to my theory. That james harden has twin twin that steps in fucks everything up for when you need somebody to be bad at basketball. And he's like that's not who i am. He's he's admitting it. But yeah like that is. That is what happened. James you've got fat game. You got fat eight your way out of houston which is very difficult to do. You stopped trying. And then you said that the rockets were just not good enough and it can't be fixed. Those were your quotes lose. Also who said taking private jets to las vegas in between games. And that's not that's not who is who is doing. The media is making him out to be like some guy that showed some big situations that love strippers and it get gets unhappy despite obvious..

"Ever. Today is monday february fifteenth. A post football world host mostly football host mostly football. Jj watt is officially a free agent. Henry lockwood has made that possible after slandering him on friday's show but. Jj watt is a free agent heartfelt speech to the fans that i loved. I thought that was really nice and really genuine. Yeah and that's the big news. Yeah and. I thought he didn't a very classy way. Extremely classy thanked the fans. First and foremost thank the franchise for put him in that position. That's something that you wouldn't expect a guy like russell wilson. Jj men every word that he said. I think that there's probably at least like three or four hundred thousand dollars that he has earmarked right now to take out full page. Thank you adds to the entire city of houston. These probably will be buying billboards all over texas thanking them for his time bear. Jj gets this guy gets it. Yeah i mean i. It was a nice video. I think it's something on par with executive russell. Wilson would do so you know my point was proven so i would contend the. Jj watt being a free agent. He has the most ties to the most teams strong ties to the most teams that a free agent has ever had so the free agency. Looks like this. Everyone says he's going to go to the packers because obviously he's from wisconsin. You don't haunt him go through all of them okay. He grew up in wisconsin. He's a packer fan. Grew up packer. fan His wife plays for the chicago red stars. So there's some links to chicago. He actually instagram story to not. He's pizza the other night so he's in chicago right now. Probably talking ryan pace. If i had to guess ryan pace is going to offer him somewhere between one hundred and fifty and two hundred million dollars and then the Completion of the watt trilogy in pittsburgh the cat the cat strapped pittsburgh steelers to add. Jj watt to The t. j. watt and the Derek watt trio in pittsburgh. And then i'll just throw in the box. Because now the the bucks had won the super bowl with tom brady I think that becomes the new. Like new england patriots wherever who whenever there was a free agent. It was like. Oh he's going to go here. And i think the blocks are now here because like oh. He's going to go there to win a ring. If you ring chasing. That's new destination. I think i mean the list for me starts and ends with pittsburgh steelers. Just because i. Jj watt and he's going to want to go play with his brothers and have them rub that interfaces like just disorders are going to get every single prime time game. They're gonna play a sixteen primetime games next year if they have three brothers. And we're gonna get sick of it. But that's like that is the quintessential. jj watt destination. Like let's go finish out my career With my two brothers and have my parents come to every single game wearing triple jerseys. We might the first ever ever triple jersey. That represents all the kids there. i could also see the tennessee. Titans i could see him going there. They swung and missed onto davey uncloudy last year. But you know that he loves rebel and you know that he would go to the titans just so he could stick it. Be twice a year and and you know that you know that would let jj catch. At least like three touchdown passes next year to something that he'd really like to do not too much respect for the texans fan base. Know that he's got too much respect for texans because the colts are also one of those the colts. I feel like the colts are officially the team that everyone is pointing to like they are one quarterback and one impact player on defense and may be one awesome wide receiver away from super bowl which i love whatever that team arises because like also that's pretty far away with three most important positions go like a slightly better head coach. Yeah so i. I think that he would go to the titans because he does a lot of rapes raves. You know what he can always make the case like me and raves. It's like houston light. You know like verbs moved up thereafter. He was attacking. He's attacking for life. i'm texan for life is just. We're texans go. And you put out to stud. And i was talking to brian mitchell. The the old washington football team on friday and he was like i would absolutely go within the divisions again. No ship brian. You did it to go to the eagles and then you got mad at the eagles so then you went to the giants. You did it twice so of course you. Jj would do something like that. But i think it's like steelers yet you have to say the packers because Not only like the wisconsin ties. But you know that. Jj sees every preseason jj sees the players..

NFL Playoff Predictions: Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"We'll start things off in the nfc where the green bay packers playing host to the tampa. Bay buccaneers. You're looking at green bay. Three and a half point favorite at faneuil sportsbook total in this game at fifty one and a half and pain. When i dug into this game i was blown away not by some of the statistics that are there the xs and os but by the simple fact that this'll be aaron rodgers first. Nfc title game. That will at home given everything he's been able to accomplish in his career and greenvale have something pretty strong working in their favor when you consider that since the wild card round began in nineteen seventy eight teams playing their third straight road game or just five and twelve against the spread for thirteen straight up so tampa get have to work against that particular trend but when you have the greatest of all time at the quarterback position. I'm sure a lot of your fears are swayed by all of that when you try and identify some of the matchups here we know these teams that. You're just assuming. Patrick mahomes doesn't get seven. Well a patron hose may seven. But he's not the go he might be the go in waiting. And who knows. Maybe we'll get a ceremonial passing of the baton from tom to patrick in tampa in two short weeks. But we're getting ahead of ourselves there as well when you look at this particular game and i know we go through the offense versus defense but which side of the ball is going to be more fascinating for you to watch tom. Brady against this. Suddenly resurgent packers defense. Who in my opinion really hasn't been tested over the last couple of weeks or aaron rodgers looking to atone for his worst performance of the season against the tampa bay bucks defensive front. I think they're both interesting. Obviously in one thing that we've talked about air this entire postseason is we're getting some good matchups. We're getting some great games. We have to be thrilled with the four teams remaining. And i know browns fans won't like this but we don't have a team that's undeserving or doesn't belong. We don't have a team. That's seven and a half eight win. Team somehow sneaking their way into the final four so to speak here with with an upset win and then taking advantage of an injury to the most important play like we have the four teams. Here that are right up there in the power rankings. You could certainly say the saints or there but you know if if i think we knew exactly what was wrong with drew brees report we might not have the saints as the top five credential. You you mean his wife coming out and saying he played the latter portion of the season with a torn labor. Him didn't have any effect on his lacklustre efforts. Throwing the ball downfield torn torn labor. M- rotator cuff torn plantar fascia and still had. I guess three fractured ribs most healed but right and so i think that was part of the the line move last week now for sure looking at this right in this match while we're getting the great games and i of go back to my initial thought here while we're getting the great matchups for us to watch there's so much variance there so many like holes to attack. That team can do that. Like sometimes you get games whereas like you break them down. Nearly there's nothing really there. These games have a lot here. And whichever one can. It's going to cause this massive variance in the game. I think we even said that last week in the packers we're going to find out who's for real. We think the packers defense is packers. Offense is really good. We think the rams defense is really good. Neither of really played a tough schedule. And i get aaron. Donald was injured last week. But i think we kind of saw. What the rams were when. They went up against an elite offense because they hadn't really faced any elite offense is aside from my guess what you could call a familiar opponent with russell wilson seattle. Who is trending horrifically to end the season. So let's start there right. And i think the obvious element the thing that we'll talk about a lot because it's worth bringing up what you'll probably. Here's you listen to a lot of breakdowns of this game all week and the one thing that can really swing this game. I think is pressure on aaron rodgers. Can the the buccaneers defense make aaron rodgers uncomfortable. And i think it's pretty pretty simple. That's going to be the largest determining factor of this game and if you're going to get a situation where aaron rodgers is strong from clean pocket. The game's over right. It's done with of quarterbacks with at least one hundred and twenty-five dropbacks aaron rodgers number one in the nfl one thirty passer rating from a clean pockets got forty touchdown four picks and clean bach suggested completion percentage when kept clean is eighty five percent. If you don't pressure. Rogers like you're not going into lambeau in january with possible weather and beating him
Rams superstar Aaron Donald upset at end of playoff loss
"The packers thirty two eighteen on saturday and heading into the weekend lindsay. You wrote that you were really excited to see this. Coaching matchup between matlock floor. And sean mcvay. What stood out to you in the battle of the minds here. Yeah i mean because these are two guys who know each other so well and you know. They're very much part of the same coaching tree. They both worked under kyle shanahan about the flora then works Under sean mcvay. So they have very similar offensive philosophies but that was just a game that was full of really interesting. Coaching matchups mallon floor wine. That batch up by far the packers had the better game plan. They were the better team better coach. All of this and sure aaron. Donald was not at full strength. You could tell that. He was very clearly hampered by the rib injury that he suffered during the wild card round but it was just a very impressive performance overall by aaron rodgers and certainly by matt leflore and that entire coaching staff the packers put up four hundred and eighty four yards of total offense against basically the best defense in the league. talked about aaron donald. Who's just a generational talent. Not being at full strength. But how is this packers offense. So effective saturday night. We'll everything they do. Obviously starts with aaron rodgers. Who just seem to have this innate mastery of what was coming and it kind of went viral on twitter a little bit because so many of fox's camera angles shown face on with aaron rodgers where you could see the moment that he realized what was coming that he was able to diagnose the coverage and dictate the play based on what was coming and the offensive line played really well protecting aaron rogers. He was barely touched. I'm not sure if his jersey had a single grass stain on after the game. And you know when you're not getting pressure on a quarterback and you're running the ball really well and you have davante adams who's one of the best wide receivers and football. It really wasn't even a close match up. And you know. I know a lot of people in green bay throughout packers land. Were wondering this is the best defense in football and it has to make you wonder. If that's the way that the packers aaron rodgers played against supposedly the best defense in football. What are they going to do for the rest of the
Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers Preview: Goff To Start At Lambeau Field
"When i look at the rams i trust everything about the rams except the guy is going to have the ball in his hands. More time than anybody else. That jerry golf. He's a turnover. He's an accident waiting to happen and he's playing with a fractured thumb and the cold weather. And so i believe the packers defense although the not great i believe they can a few turtles out of him. Be a fumble or interceptions. Now aaron donald aaron says he feels great. Aaron donald play with a torn cartilage. Not me i had. That injury are in my ribs door to rip cartilage. Yup i tore my my real ended up when came loose my real extra protrudes a little bit now because there's not intact because the cartilage was torn. It was painful now. I don't know if anybody's ever had that skip. But sudden movements and aaron don lizzy sudden guy giving out a tooth gap and guy and even if he was. I mean just that third to feel that you don't realize how much you use your core until injure and then you realize the simple things brush not putting on your clothes brushing your hair. Imagine trying to play. Nfl football tried to move with three hundred pound man against wheel. Now you've got two hundred. Three hundred pounds man tried to move you against your will so it's going to be interesting to see not no. He's going to get the medication in there and and to calm it down in. So he's going to be very interesting. He might hip. Injury might not be as severe as my he might be able to tolerate more pain the not cooler. But that's not a very pleasant injury to play with in given that and everybody looking for the matchup everybody everybody would talk about. You know what they already talked about. Seventeen versus twenty. They will see jalen ramsey devante. Now i'm not sure how much jalen is going to travel now. I'm sure what jalen lineup was. I don't know if you've got to follow him in the slot. I don't know if he's probably left or right. But i've loved to see that. Because i know at some point in time. He's gonna have to come out on the side of with jason's zone and everybody wants to see that matchup.

Dolphins' Tagovailoa wins first career NFL start
"It always seems like he can find the bright side always seems like he can find a reason to smile or reason to be optimistic. And considering what they last year of his football career has been like the last year of his life dominated by rehab from a devastating hip injury, And here he is. Thrown into the fire after the Dolphins by week, making his first career NFL start. And while he does have his first career NFL fumble, say hello to Aaron Donald, you also hear his first career touchdown pass on the Dolphins radio network. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio, We will look into his numbers here a little bit more about this rookie quarterback. Who they've thrown out there in place of Ryan Fitzpatrick to figure out if they have Their franchise. Q. B. You may have seen the reports that kind of sprinkling out over the last couple of weeks ever since he got the starting job, despite the fact that they were three and three in Fitzpatrick. Is a guy that really brings a lot of energy and great leadership. The reason they went to to, uh According to reports, it's because they want to know if they need to go back to the draft. And start looking at quarterbacks or to a can be the man moving forward and considering the number of times the Dolphins have been hit or miss on quarterback since, say, I don't know. Dan Marino retired. They want to make sure they've got the right guy. And so yes, there right in the mix in the A, F C and now are above 502nd place in the East Division ahead of the New England Patriots. When was the last time we said that? But they want to know if to Ah can be the face of their franchise or because they've got some high draft picks Houston being one of those right they had Houston's draft pick in 2020 and Houston's terrible Right now sitting on one win, and so it could be a really high draft pick. So they want to know is to Ah going to be the solution at quarterback, or do we need to keep looking? It's

"aaron donald" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Impacting and helping improving the quality of play from everybody around him. That starts with Aaron Donald on the Front End and also Jalen Ramsey on the back end. Aaron Donald is one of the few defensive tackles despite not being a gigantic space eater that can divert significant attention. Away from his fellow Linemates, he is a guy that has to be double teamed. He's a guy that teams will often run away from him because they're worried about giving up pressure for tackles for loss. They know it's just easier to say we're going to stick to running the one side because maybe there's more success than running directly into Aaron Donald, and because of that, that frees up a lot. Of defensive tackles on their on their on their line like Michael brokers to be on an island with an offensive lineman. That is a perfect scenario for who for a guy who is still very, very talented as it offensive tackle because there is a lot more free space to move and teams are double teaming Aaron Donald that makes things so much easier for the guys behind him to move freely. But even as much as Aaron Donald is double teamed and Offenses Duke Game Plan for him. It almost doesn't matter. He already has three sacks on the season and. The Rams just find ways to get him involved a make offenses have to find him against the Dallas Cowboys. They. There was a play early in the game where they had donald lined up as a standup rusher at out at the seven technique, basically as a standup defensive end and they had them lined up over Tyron Smith, and he was still able to get pressure on Dak Prescott. Yeah. I I don't know of any other defensive tackles who can basically be a stand up rusher and bully tyrant Smith that shouldn't be possible but it is. The rams are going to move him all around their defensive for the jobs are going to have to keep track of him and. Basically, have a standing double team or wherever he he lines up he needs to be double teamed just period and it still might not matter I can say pretty confidently and it's not something I want to say confidently Chris. But if the giants don't properly identify where he is and who is supposed to be blocking him. Like. We saw Khalil Mack come free against the Chicago bears. and. He lit up Daniel Jones Aaron. Donald will have huge production and have a huge day against them. They need to be a hundred percent aware of where he is because frankly this offensive line is already not getting the job done. Now imagine them in week three having to face the best defensive tackle and also defensive lineman playmaker sack producer. run-defender in the NFL, they need to know where he is on the field. Yeah, and they need to execute perfectly every single rap because not only is Aaron Donald a freakish athlete which we all know but he is also incredibly technically sound. He's got a super high motor and he can make plays just by not giving up and finding his way through waves of blockers with really just excellent hand uses great leverage and just work his way into plays. It's tough to not sound hyperbolic about him but. He really is just that good. I, know he's one of the few players that it sounds like you're over exaggerating and hyping him up. He is that good of a player is that good of a player to completely break again and shut down an offense? There's not a lot of guys in the NFL who are capable of doing that and speaking of a guy on the outside who is capable of shutting down receivers that's Jalen Ramsey, and we spoke when breaking down the forty niners film of how Much giants receiver receivers were struggling to get open and create separation. Whoever is on Jalen Ramsey in is playing against him is going to have a very tough time. It might not be the same guy every single play. But Ramsey is good enough to shut down in lockdown whoever they're facing yet he really is and and that's why they went out and got him. He is. He has been at times. One of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. His play has been a little up and down but I'm not sure the giants really have anybody who scares him Darius in might be able to out athlete him some. If Ramsey's able to get his hands on able to redirect him slings. GonNa have a hard time finding separation and that really going to limit what the giants are able to do on offense. Lastly, if we're talking about other talented players and I think that both of these guys are. Guys that benefit from the extra attention from for Aaron, Donald that being Leonard, Floyd and Michael Brokers both of which Chris you know are very productive brokers. Type of player that kin. Similar to Donald, not at the same level, require some extra attention because he is a very big and talented defensive tackle and then Leonard Floyd who came over from the shot bears has been very, very good for them as one of their best outside pass rushers yet floyd is currently second on the team he has. Two sacks two tackles for loss three quarterback hits. That's really nowhere near Donald has produced, but that's still not bad for the third game and you know we saw him at Chicago. He is a very long, very athletic edge player outside linebacker. and. He can drop into coverage which does give them more options for disguising looks disguising pressures that something the rams don't do all that often, and they tend to not be terribly successful when they do blitz. But they can bring pressure from unexpected areas just because of how much attention offenses have to pay to Aaron Donald and having a long athletic lexical edge like Leonard. Floyd..
Bills rally to beat Rams 35-32 after blowing 25-point lead
"The bills. Blew a twenty five point lead on Sunday and lived to tell the tale. The bills happily received the gift of questionable Pi call on fourth down. Then won the game on a Josh Allen to Tyler. Crop Hook up with fifteen seconds to play final score thirty, five, thirty, two. Wow Greg the rams came this close to a comeback for the ages. Only let victory slip away. They left too much time on the clock. When you come back from twenty three, you got a time that final touchdown just to go to overtime and then win the coin flip, which is probably the only way. The Rams Defense was GONNA get a stop in a big moment here because Josh Allen. Did. It all in this game in terms of the rollercoaster, the the whole experience they had nine possession and they and they scored five touchdowns. So I don't want to hear anything about the bills offense being in any way let down now he helped set up the comeback with a couple of turnovers, one of which came on a very questionable call, but was also a terrible throw by Alan. So yeah, he was at some fall Aaron Donald took over the game as Donald Does but my big takeaway is that the bills are an offensive team you WANNA get on part of their team. For blowing the lead, get on the defense I I look at them more as a team. That's GonNa make mistakes offensively as we saw here and there but that had to third and twenty three situations with the game on the line and they wound up converting the both they got one into a four, thousand nine. They got that questionable call as you mentioned Dan and and if they didn't get it, we'd be talking about how they blew this game but I still. As. A global view. Take a look at this bills team in think this offense is really dangerous and Alan's going to have some ups and downs but the conversion that they've had into an offense that can score over thirty regularly is massive and they are gonna be a tough team to beat when that's the case One thing stuck out to me was the uproar over the the controversial call at the end of the game and to be honest I caught a lot of this game. The only reason the rams were in the game was because of a bad call in their favour in which there was a simultaneous possession interception, which was clearly caught by the offensive player, and then once they hit the ground was wrestled out of his hands by the defensive player was a horrible call and they tried to defend it afterwards, our river on did and. It didn't make any sense when he tried to defend it either terrible throw though two and they gave up four touchdowns in four possessions very quickly. I think it's giving the rams a little too little credit's saying that's the only reason. It was definitely a turning point but it was a bad decision by Alan and more more to the point the rams offense started cooking. In the third and fourth quarters I hated that call. It's funny. We just started this show talking about how referees are keeping the flags in their pockets that to me at the end of the game there and I I know L. River on got behind his boy there. But that seemed very ticky tack with the game on the line to call that. But you know at that happens ultimately I think if you're the rams. Yeah. You're smarting from that call but also there are two third in forever's that they had right the bill. And all you gotTa do is make stop and that was you know that was to opportunities they had and they and they let it go by the boards and that is a credit to Allen I didn't get a chance to see this game. So I can't really say too much about it other than. His ability to just move this team up and down the field for three straight weeks, he is passed for three hundred yards. In, three straight weeks and they are averaging I believe four hundred and thirty yards. Total yards per game and thirty one points per game through three weeks, which is obviously franchise records across the board. There's something special happening with his offer.

"Just for the record once upon a time I used to watch a guy named Lawrence Taylor, and all I had to do is just turn on my TV. And he leapt off my screen, right and left. You had to know nothing about football just to watch one LT game and you'd say there is there is there is. He was unsold awesome. Coming off the edge I could see it like that so i. Hear, you correctly so because Aaron Donald, is not Lawrence Taylor therefore he's. Being. Let's move to the interior of the line. Let's move to Reggie White. Every time I turned on a Reggie White Game. It would leap off my screen that there's that force in the middle of the line that two or three people cannot control. He was a disruptive force.

We nitpicking I would take hold because I believe he's the best player in football and I believe the distance between him, and the next best quarterback in football is the distance between him, and what Aaron Donald Lives and the defensive player in football, but my problem is. Is Aaron Rodgers not in the top fifty? That's job you know that I. Know that I don't know you know that. What if I've been telling you for four years in decline stats keep falling. Focuses we can't. Can't legitimately put him in the top fifteen when fixing four twenty six times four picks anywhere today, and if the championship game highs ranked higher when he didn't go, as far didn't have the touchdown to intercept rate your guy. Last year ranked eighteenth in the League. and. He ranked twenty third in the League in completion percent. Guess what your guy was behind my guy and qbr completion percentage. Your.

There's fifty other players in the NFL. That's on this list. That's better than. I'll buy that I'll give you that point, but I think it's telling you. What I've been trying to tell you last year was not about near Rogers. An opportunistic defense that kept taking the ball away from. Tampa Bay. In the. Way that we didn't pick up the pig the pig. Scoop is gone. You Mean New England knowingly. Yes, yeah, who? Patriots that until we ate gates once they ran into Lamar and company, it was game over for that defense down the stretch that deepens was horrendous liability. A lot of people have problems dealing with limbaugh noon. That does not change the fact and the Patriots deepest finished number one. It got exposed number one. Did they finish the Ryan?

One you mentioned Bruce Lee. Oh some of these other ones that the Lance Armstrong with. It's GONNA come up on Sunday here. In the first part of that. Too Far there has to be some element. One of two things are both that something. I don't know or something that I really want to know at. He might tell me you know what I mean. There has to be a little bit of mystery or unknown going into this and there certainly some unknowns with Tom Brady because he's pretty private guy that he'll show up at some gala events and things like that he's got a very famous wife but to your point. I don't know how he's managed to do what he's done for twenty years. I just don't know that I'm dying to find out down. I mean he he just doesn't strike me as a compelling persona and it's not just about me just generally speaking. There's not a whole lot. Either when he married Zell was like he may Giselle. It wasn't like you know a rise which you know what I'm saying is it was like okay. That's that's cool. Very very safe is very middle road now if they showed some clips and he's at the Abbey or something. My pen I go. I didn't know I didn't know he was down there. S Gordon Hook clips with something compelling then baby. I'll pay attention but as of right now as I said I never thought about Tom Brady unless I was actually watching the Patriots game. I'm interested to this dynamics near but but I don't know that he'll show. The interesting dynamics is things like how you met. His wife way met his wife at Western lifestyle in in her country of Brazil. What what's what are the kids like Tom? Brady had father two children basically at the same time by different women. Or do we get into that. How that affected him to concentrate more on this versus that. Like do you get into some of those compelling situations at the beginning. It was a nasty relationships. With the one child. Mother and all of a sudden they mandated now to one big happy family. Like doesn't get into that because it played a part in his growth as a football player in his mental side of it. Or we're just talking about. We went in and we won and we lost him we XS and Os this back during the season you see what. I'm saying like Vitamin Jacket. Keep I keep going back to. What's coming up on Sunday with Lance Armstrong? And the more that they run those promos the more intrigue idea by it because I think Lance Armstrong when he comes up on the screen gives you a very visceral reaction did because because you think about it he won. All those races raised all that money for cancer research. He became an absolute inspiration for. Who knows how many people with the live? Strong bracelets in everybody was all in on Lance Armstrong and then it turns out that he's a really bad guy. It turns out that he really messed with some people's lives and was lying for years and years and years about what went on the that. We're kind of drawn to the menace of it all in with Tom Brady there. There just isn't a like Michael. Jordan was tough. He's punching guys in the eye and practice. He's calling his teammates out. All these there's a real topless there the. Oj thing speaks for itself. There has to be some level of damned wide. Like this guy at all when you're watching it and that he's necessarily an entirely bad etc Michael Jordan's bad guy but there's certainly elements to him that are unlikable with.

It's going to stunt growth kit that you're not GonNa get him saying we were headed to prior to my last. Was It the last championship appearance? Was it the one before whichever one it was? You'RE NOT GONNA get him talking about Mr Craff in his incident that he had down in Florida. You're not going to having a conversation. What is we do it? The what is we do doing. If we'RE NOT GONNA at the end of the day there are going to be people that will watch it included. Yeah there's going to be people that would be good to the seat because they're huge. Tom Brady fans wanted the problem. Many problems that I have with situation is you're coming out of it at a time. You're showing it at a time when I believe sports be back in a full capacity generating fans as far as the game is going right now. Michael Jordan situation was two things it was pros to be released in June but ESPN in John. Doll and everybody got smart. It relies. We're GONNA move this thing up because they were we're at home and shelter and people were starving for sports. Let's move this thing up to April and let's get it going and this was diff. That's a huge difference. Between Tom. Tom Brady comes next week in all of a sudden speeded up and it's ready to go next week. It'll be different watch. It'd be a much different watching next week. Didn't it will a year and a half from now especially if there's a chapter on why he left. New England in the answer is something other than what I wanted to play football somewhere else. If it's something other than that then you got me if it's something about a relationship. We heard the rumors about Josh Daniels. We've heard rumors about bill. They just wanted to be loose enough. Okay you got me at that point you know. I really wanted to myself in different offense after all these out and look. This is partially US right. That we'd like to the more salacious stuff. The more tawdry things the contrary stuff that makes it interesting. I mean it's not the only reason not to watch is the simple fact that when he's at the podium when he's in interviews he he his essence is not a compelling presents. His accomplishments are compelling. The story of his career is can tell him he is not compelling and that to me is the biggest difference and that's the reason why he never really gave you snap crackle pop away from the sport it was like. I didn't care. Tom Brady has shown up in a movie or TV series. I didn't care if I just didn't care whereas Jordan. I care where he was at Jordan was individual the Michael Jackson like the black community almost destroyed so we were out. There isn't a craziest thing I told I mean there's a difference. I guess so you when you put like that Aaron Donald says you have to have one thing if you're gonNA play a football game. We'll tell you what.
The Running Back's Struggle
"Josh last time we had ESPN. It was to talk about fullbacks today. We're talking about running backs in our way through the backfield man just like Aaron Donald Josh firms. Meyer writes about football for five thirty eight Josh late last week. The Rams announced in a shocking move that they were releasing running back. Todd Gurley. This was a remarkable turn of events Given that girlie one offensive player of the year in twenty seven teen thoroughly. He was discussed by some people as an MVP candidate in two thousand eighteen on route to the Super Bowl led the league in rushing touchdowns that year. The ten the five untouched. To the end zone touchdown todd Gurley and on top of that. He's only twenty five years old. What happened my goodness twenty five year? Old running backs are already aging out. The first thing that happened to him was he has arthritic me. So at the end of the two thousand eighteen season he had to be replaced and spelled by Anderson Mentally played a little bit in the Super Bowl but he was just entirely ineffective. Fortunately that ineffectiveness carried over into the twenty nine thousand nine season and inbetween. He was given an extension that made him one of the highest. Pay running backs in the league. So this season couple that knee with his expense the caps situation in a loss Angeles and he just became a casualty and I think he is kind of an exemplar for everything. That's going on with running backs in the NFL. It's this idea of short and careers injury proneness and loss of effectiveness and therefore being cut or getting lower pay on the day that he was released. Espn stats and Info. Put out an number that I found fascinating in two thousand fifteen year. That Gurley was drafted. Twenty two backs were drafted. Not a single one of them. Josh is still on the team that selected them. What do you make of that goes to this idea of running backs? Having really short shelf life season for running back usually occur in one of their first two seasons at least in terms of productivity in terms of touches. You wear them down so quickly in this league. Though it's one of the toughest position on on the body and so I think the League as we've seen so far this year they still are kind of have a predilection overpay for the very good running backs are the ones that just had a good season but on by and large I think across the league. You're seeing people being really risk averse and moving on from running backs after a couple of seasons. When did you notice that that some teams not all and we'll get to some teams that have continued to pay running backs winded some teams for start to realize that they had been overvaluing the position and wanted to invest elsewhere. It's hard to trace it back specifically to a particular team but I know that People in twitter sphere and analytics the NFL analytics of talked about the replace ability of the running back position for quite a few years. The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the first on board to kind of spend money at the position but spread that money out over multiple players to kind of make the injury risks inherent in the position kind of spread across multiple sets of legs. The Baltimore Ravens are also one of the ones that the forefront of really just paying the absolute minimum that they have to at that position and actually getting pretty good production out of you mentioned that the analytics community was sort of early on this trend. What did they find? What did the data tell us about running backs really two things? Were most important about running the football. The results of run plays are primarily determined by run walking and defenders in the box. The defense and not who's carrying the ball because of that the finding is the inferences. They're running backs are interchangeable and investing a lot of resources whether it's the draft or whether it's free agency just doesn't make a lot of sense is also can be pinned on the changing nature of football itself. By and large. The data tells us that passing more passing. Early is more efficient right absolutely absolutely. I mean it's not even close in terms of the average value of a planet passing versus running on early downs. Then you still have to get into this idea. Of How much does it matter to the mentality of the team? How much does it matter to keep the defense on their toes? How much do you have to do to keep them honest? And so there's no question about how much teams should passing as a percentage of plays but is probably a case. They should be passing more than now. So are there any situations in which running the football is more advantageous absolutely? I absolutely you need to be able to run well at the goal line on Short yardage. If you have a running quarterback like Baltimore had last season definitely scrambling in design runs for quarterback are extremely efficient. Jackson will keep it on the read option expense at the thirty Lamar Jackson. Ted Pa Touch Lavar captain with the spin. This print Emma score. We saw what happened with Baltimore last year. They say hadn't run into that. Tennessee buds buzzsaw in the playoffs. They probably would have made it to the superbowl in my opinion. So there's definitely something to be said for the analytics and say stop running entirely and if you are going to do it do it with deception. Right off of play action. Get the other team guessing. About what your actual formation means and so they lose half a step in responding to what you're doing those are the kind of the things analytics pushes for not not whether or not you should be one hundred percent run or a hundred percent. You mentioned that Tennessee buzzsaw that beat the Baltimore. Ravens upset them. I think a lot of people point to that team to Derrick Henry and say see having a unique generational running back does matter. Look they upset. You Know New England in Baltimore. What would you say to that? I mean he got a twelve point. Five million franchise tag out of that performance. The back end of that year so I understand their point. They're looking at what just happened. They're looking at how he's being rewarded. No saying obviously matters but they beat another rushing team it the problem that I think the face the Ravens and we saw it with Kansas City. And how they didn't share. This same problem was that if you're built around the run whether it's by the quarterback or running it up the middle an wide zone like ravens did last season if you fall behind against a team that is also a ground and pound team in trying to control the clock and control the pace and you put yourself in a position where you have to come back. And you're not used to doing it or you don't have a quarterback quarterback that perhaps his is known for that type of play. You get what happened in in in Baltimore that night Jackson under pressure always lose ball stemming interception Jedi for the titans come up with another turnover hennessy. Titans are shocking the ravens whereas with the city chiefs they fell behind early three straight times but ended up winning the Super Bowl because they have a pass attack higher variants. You could make up ground easier with the passing game that you can with the run. When everything's working great rushing is the first thing you should try. And if you're good at it you should do it as long as you can but when it fails it fails pretty spectacularly and you need to be able to pass and in fact at the NFL level we ever parody is so prevalent that you really should just start out passing at that point because everyone's trying to run and everyone's trying to stop the run so the chiefs are sort of the analytics darling in this scenario because you know they passed their way to the Super Bowl. Josh they also have Patrick Mahomes right. So if you're a team with an average quarterback do you still think it's better to take a pass first approach in every NFL GAME? Even with a mediocre quarterback we find that they are better and teams are better and more efficient passing the ball and in sometimes. It's even more apparent when you have kind of an average or slightly above average quarterback because the defense and the defensive coordinator is almost sure you're going to not rely on them right. They're gonNA say well he's kind of crap you know. They're probably going to run out us all day long. And try and be safe with the ball so to the extent that you can put a mediocre quarterback in good positions like. Perhaps Tennessee did last year. Then you can take quarterback that had been floundering for years like Ryan Tannehill in. Turn him in to one of the best quarterbacks in the league the number one running back by the end of the season a guy that some people thought could have been the super bowl. Mvp was undrafted Damian Williams who is set to make just over a couple million dollars next year. How much does finance or the market factor in to know what we think about running backs today? I think you know if you're a casual fan. And you see everyone else. Basically on the team. Except for the punter and kicker getting more than on average than these running backs. I think it's beginning to percolate that. They're probably not the most important piece on the offense anymore. Things about analytics. Is that unlike baseball? Where like things got more boring? When analytics became involved when analytics can evolved in Football. Become more exciting. We want more passing. We want to go for it on fourth down. We want to know more so I one of the good things about all of this is that you see more aggressive more exciting football when it's played in the way that evidence seems to suggest it should
"aaron donald" Discussed on Pardon My Take
"Pmt THAT'S ZIPRECRUITER DOT com slash PMT and now decay metcalf end earned on a novice. Something completely different we. Now welcome on Seattle seahawks wide receiver. Decay metcalf we.

Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams
"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you
Jalen Ramsey trade grades: Rams complete cornerback overhaul
"The rams have made a nother monster trade and this time they've traded for the best player available on the trade market Jalen Ramsey generally considered the best cover corner in the NFL extremely unhappy in Jacksonville it has been asking for a trade for weeks yeah is on his way to the ramps it is being reported by multiple sources now including Adam Schefter that the rams are acquiring jalen Ramsey for two first round picks a first round pick in twenty twenty a first round pick in twenty twenty one and a fourth round pick in twenty twenty one three total draft picks including two number ones all right king of the Ramle what he is saying I I'm so as soon as I traded Marcus Peters I thought are you initially said wait a minute keep Ta- Leib Injured Reserve yesterday Marsha I have no corner they have no corners could this be Jalen Ramsey and you're right yes it is Jalen Ramsey this is what I love about less need and Kevin often the ramps are constantly pushing their chips to the middle of the table you know three and three did not look good after that loss to San Francisco major upgrade to the defense ager upgraded the defense and by the way they also added a pretty good linebacker and Kenny foster and they added an offensive Lineman in Austin corporate earlier today for the Cleveland browns they are they are trying to accumulate Talat to turn this around at one correction you said Kenny foster it's Kenny Young's thirty on Kenny went to Ucla and was great at Ucla she was What's interesting now is what do I always pound on the table with the doctor bus pounded into me star driven town Yes star driven town star driven town no matter what you say star Driven Town Yep the rams now have five different players who are the top paid player at their position Jared Goff Yup uncooked. Yup Todd Gurley Aaron Donald and we assume jalen Ramsey we assume this trade is being made with the idea that Ramsey will sign a long term. term gas contract because if not it's all it's a lot to give up that is a lot every time the rams have wanted to sign somebody to a long term deal they've gotten because remember Marcus Peters on his fifth year option and there was plenty of speculation that the rams were not going to extend him now they've got a younger more accomplished cornerback in Jalen Ramsey who I think there's a much higher comfort level in signing for the long term and by the way he's going to be fun to talk to fun to cover he's a fascinating guy he's not afraid of a great quote and he also happens to be arguably the best cover corner in the NFL well and you have a guy like this it basically takes away half the field yes you just have to defend the other half 'cause you know Jalen Ramsey can guard the elite wide receivers that put him on an island silent or Dion island that's this guy and he's not even twenty five years old
"aaron donald" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"MVP of which was unheard of there's only happened twice. Okay Allen pay right here right now if I gave you a choice as a GM Aaron Donald or Patrick Mahomes who you taken. I'm taking the whole boy. Thank you but you just told me earned dollars the best player in football how well what are you talking to what you semantical definition of best player Aaron. Donald is the best player in football but if you're trying to build a team you always take the guy that can score points. Oh well maybe that makes the quarterback a lot more valuable than the defense of the values gap. It's the sane knowing full value to make sure I'm here you so every time someone wins the most valuable player so okay. I'm glad you said that so. I don't want anything anything else about Michael Jordan because Carl did win. MVP when Michael Jordan was Indonesia told you that was a popular. I just explained number year. I'd say Michael Win that don't like him okay so what about what magic adjectives hilarious and they wanted to be an eighties okay would they. What would they better than Mac now but they kept winning because there's popularity there's always what do you call it. There's a narrative right. It's give you ought to be ashamed. Who's winning the championships. Once Michael broke through he was a baby player when and they were and they will hold me magic magic in there had walkers tabby one hour. We had it Aaron Donald. Get in this conversation because he doesn't belong along. Jeffey does the best right now so you see what you do. Skill is that when someone says somebody's better you go to the best player in the history of that sport. He's not that you would not make a cave the greatest player I'll go to Tom Brady. Tom Brady's better than earned dollar. Just is way better. He's like like a hundred times battery. You know what the city of Los Angeles now has to overrated a d do to overrated eighties and you know what I'm that's. That's the one that's sixteen by the one title and you change your tune. Maybe you would think you take what you do. I bet you be saying tuning twenty twenty really twenty twenty. You won't be saying that it is a slow start to say words. You're saying he's going to carry the old man to a title I don't get what do you call it what you want to to see how you like them. Worry with Barbecue Lemon pepper on the words. You gotta eat because you eat the word. How many words have I ever eat Bo Bush none. We're talking about what you eight O. Taco Oh exchange life in Dallas but before we get there we are GonNa talk about the level of concern. Drowning Baker Mayfield slow start off season. It's been interesting Eric Dickerson. He joins us. Let's get his answer as well so the browns host the rams on Sunday night football and are three point underdogs according to Fox Bet Baker Mayfield has had a shaky start to the season with two touchdowns four interceptions and it has at least one former Brown's great concerned six time all Pro Thomas said that Baker's lack of rhythm is surprising rising and unsettling and that the QB seem confused about several of the jets coverage is on Monday night so we're now joined by Fox sports. NFL analyst Eric Dickerson good to have you eric. Yes sir good to have you whenever we're talking about that team but when it comes to do the browns what do you expect from Baker when he faces Wade Phillips Defense one thing. I expect him to be afraid of his Aaron. Donald I saw you know when you watch Baker he looks looking for us and I think Greg Williams really good job of that. You know the same kind of defense at the rams have but what I do expect them to do is is most try to cut down on the penalties and not having hold the ball as long because he holds the ball a long time when these as long routes. It's going to be a problem. That's GONNA give Corey Lilla time to get to and that's GonNa give Clay Matthews time to get to him and also Aaron Donald. The football skip you mean the guy would know saks saks in the play offs. Don't mail sacks against the cowboys career. I don't know but he he I was just GonNa say what about them. We're lost. You always say we lost. Okay Anyway Tony Romo. He lost so so you know. I just feel like that the NFL. It's as you know Shannon. It doesn't take long for them to catch up. You know they they watch him. In the off season their wives Baker you know every player has a tendency. All of us have Tennessee. You know one thing I I expect Brown to do is look to nick job to try to establish the run they they did that last week. They start renting football. The jets stuff that it's still came back back to it and read it and it was good for them and that gives Baker chance to kind of get into a rhythm but you know if if he holds at Bothwell longtime and it looks confused you you know one thing. Wade Phillips will do will give him looks that it may look like this but is not that it may look like man but it's not man so that's what I expect. What do I expect us to win. That football game I gotta go with that of course is doing to handle I do. I say that because I don't have to play ain't gotta get hit. You expect Moore Struggle Skip. I think a lot of it has to do with expectations we automatically assume or you see what he did he had more touchdown than his rookie this season than any quarterback in the NFL history in so you automatically what you know what if you play to Welby and he's GonNa play you can play even better next year and like Eddie says team studying and I think the thing is they're trying to push the because they won't be played in. They're trying to push the ball down the field in sometimes you got pat the ball in order for those guys. Get down the field. Maybe maybe some of that padding the ball is called WASCO. He might be looking for a certain player a certain number no words a certain type of watch but we're not talking about that but it's it's still early. Skipping Greg Williams confuse a lot of people now. Greg will show you a lot of different looks but if you can block it up like the blitz look. He gave the nine eight or eighty nine. He did their creases in there yeah but you're GONNA have to hold up now because he will tell you a lot of different. Look I have a lot of guys moving around and what you think is not that and if you're not careful he hits in the back of your head. What bliss a free rush. I expect way doesn't like the bliss a lot especially when he got guys we ahead. Bond Miller indeed where you didn't really have to bleed. You know you got a slight one way or another and it got getting single coverage can get home. Free Way doesn't really like to cause not yet clay matthew. He also has finally also have Aaron Donald he does so he feels he can get there were pressure but he will bring it because he does have competence in his back. He has whittled back there now to leave market. Beatles but pete of need to be very careful Rodale because Peter is very vulnerable with the double move because the quarterback the likes to clue he likes to play off and he'll pat to read the quarterback pools up at three of ball's coming out quick and Odiele sit down and take off on you and now you've got a big play over the top so he needs to be very very careful. Plant Dale Peters does but I expect way to get after Peter's against Michael Tigar regular season. He's engaged you. Were there eight what happened to the play good point. You gotta you gotTa you gotTa pay my turn before I launch. Let me say I still love watching Baker. Mayfield play quarterback in fact. I enjoy his brand of quarterback better than any any other. I like him more than watching Dak or Tom. Brady or the quarterbacks I love because I just loved the swagger and the body language in the touchdown down celebrations running up the field doing helicopters and planes. It's just fun to watch because it is far esque farve like just spilling spilling over with energy in enjoy and trash talk and he just loves to compete but so far so bad because it goes back the third preseason game the dress rehearsal when he against Tampa when ten or twenty six for seventy two yards with no touchdowns in a pick and he just looked lost against Tampa and then obviously forty three to thirteen happened in their home opener thanks to the Tennessee titans and it was a disaster man and he just kept try harder tried the word against hapless. Give credit now. Tall Bull's might not know any different than I'll. He's called coordinate he is he can really coordinate nick. Goodman is Arizona Day Okay and yet I'm with you about this. I fear he he has fallen into the Odell trap because especially against the jets albeit against Greg Williams who can confuse anybody in. He was spoiled to try to get even with the teen gene. Let him go right but Baker was. He's holding the ball because he's looking to make hit a home run with Odell hit one early right now might have been the worst thing that could happen open to them for the season because it was the catch just another hood ornament right. Yup and yet after that he's forcing the ball to Odell and he's holding it and he's he's trying to duck and dodge in hold and escape and he can run a little bit he can move a little bit but after a while he's starting to take shots starting to get beat up and he's not he's not a big man not like he's not built like cam is or the quarterbacks so to me. He's got to spread the volcanoes last year. He didn't care he was not Jarvis centric. They had a bunch of young receivers little calloway in name a whole whole Rossi against yeah. They're pretty good. They're all pretty good and they looked very good when he was spraying the ball over the lot so I'm a little worried because because listen. This is a tall test. Your guy can really you. Don't talk about coordinating. That's a loaded defense with a really shrewd operator. Peter Calm those defense apply question wetted Freddie Kitchens come from what what what did he coach it. We coach a lot of place the way it goes less so he he he knows he knows that defense. He knows he knows he knows what would what Aaron Donald can do knows that they need to double team. We can sit here and say oh well. He's not you know you say he's not there but Freddie kitchens like hey look. This guy can hurt out quarterback. Okay what did you what did he do to parliament. I told my friend Roy Green. We played them in London. I'd say he's GonNa. Make your quarterback retire. Never tell you that we do. We broke his arm. He so so you know you gotta gotTa you gotTa count doubles who doesn't double and triple back sometime comes on and you're talking about offensive line. Cleveland Office of line is not that good that they're not that good so in in the worst thing you can do is give you have a physical glad is not very good. It's all of all that's why he's taking a lot of hits and he has he has doubled him an exemption. This touchdowns you. If you take what the defense give you pretty soon soon. They'll start creeping up and then you'll be able to throw the ball of your hair. That shouldn't be your first order of business trying to throw the ball over the head because they're like no we're not. GonNa give you anything cheap and deep early early but it was inciteful to me intriguing that the ESPN guys on Monday night football kept saying that and and I assume they got this from Freddie Kitchens that that Nick Chubb is the Most Valuable Player on that offense well there's Baker and there's Odell but nick shoves the MVP the offering gotta run that that would suggest again sure guys. They're just going to run it and run it. They have to win it because you know I would say the run sets up everything the play action all of a sudden you know you can't just set those guys that you you you got to run the football right oaths enough with a quarterback it does it makes you quarterback job a lot easier and then all of a sudden it makes them running back job a lot easier so they've got to try to run the football. They did it against the jets and they did a pretty good job. I think that nature is probably the most underrated in Arrow better than people think well..

"It's little tiny incremental improvements that are really nice to see and when you combine that with the line and the receiver talented they seem to have right now with Gallup become the player that he is when you look at teams that are set to regress to me the most important things to do if the roster is pretty stagnant and pretty similar is improve yourself schematically which they've done and it's to get steps forward from your young players for Gallup to look like he did for Jordan Louis to play as well as he did stuff like that. I just think makes this team really frightening. Okay so here was actually the point I was. GonNa make the rams did not look as good as they had looked in last year's the playoffs or or whatever but I want to address just week one in September in general the Rams essentially do training camp with no preseason game stay of a kind of perfected a load management thing. I actually asked Aaron Donald about this later in the show not that we don't just have that live and we don't we. I'm not suggesting testing. We prerecorded Aaron. Donald Interview did I did ask him about the load management stuff. some I talked to coach is all training camp about but I think that it is really hard right now and I know that I said this about the Patriots and the Patriots just paste of the steelers it is really hard to figure out what elite teams are going to look like a mid season and September because of the way training camp and the preseason I agree with the cowboys look really freaking good. The cowboys were a playoff team and I think the Kellen Moore as we've talked about had a journey with Keller more to the point that now in preseason. I was pretty hyped about him. It whereas maybe I wasn't excited about the higher in general to begin with but I think that there is some real promise there. I think I agree with you. They are they are a chance to be in the elite of the NFL but I'm I'm withholding judgement any all sort of teams. We've seen at the elite level in the past couple of years until Halloween. It's week one and let's take shop you obviously but at a certain point it's you the Games all matter and there's only sixteen events and they looked phenomenal. I'm not I'm not taking week one victory laps here but I will say that the Kellen Moore Higher and the Calamar Plan and everything I thought about it coming in I was pumped about and and it was exactly what I wanted to see. I mean this dude is just doing Chris Peterson stuff with an NFL offense and with an NFL offense that has a ton of talent so so I'm excited about it moving forward we'll see what happens with the rams the saints the entire power structure in the NFC but I feel like a weekend. Dallas definitely deserves mention before we move.

I've got a couple of more than two concise on a plate snacks this license and you can you explain to me the number number of pizza slices Aaron. Donald can eat in a single sitting if he's just it's a cheap day. He doesn't care he's just gonNa eat the whole thing that she few days I could. I could probably go honestly ten but I hope that I don't WanNa feel bad about myself. I eat kids so six. I feel I how did I you know I just slice right here. What is it cheap day? Look like Aaron Donald Pizza I try not to eat too many sweets so this more pieces of wins for us stuff well so much. Can you explain to us how it happens. How do you go as a three star recruit in high school to not having a whole lot of college teams to getting to the pros and several guys were taken ahead of you and then everybody realizes Oh oh this guy can't be blocked? How does that happen? I was really good at high school. You know I was a guy that was still productive still getting a lot assets to I as an interception in Dallas no biggest guy so. I didn't think that I would be able to translate that the college which is fan fan you know but you know you know. I only had three offers come out of high school. It was Pitt Toledo Akron. I got the tomato African my brother back they go about and so you know with my dream school because once they include him again opportunity you know and you get to college they still a lot of people people still don't think that because you're not the biggest guy I probably wouldn't have no you won't what you about and you know and then it comes to the Jackson in it at the same thing that got my life he's not the biggest guy I don't think he'd be able to hold up in the NFL long arms and he's there the body swallow uh-huh and then the national football league and and you can put it on fan if I okay maybe maybe we can address at the tackle this at six foot two eighty and so dawn on the planet game ten open door for guessing the body types and get get them opportunities. You know so if you could play ball like I was you can play you can play. She's put on for normal on much games before Aaron. It's the first play from scrimmage. You're lined up against the blocker. You haven't faced before. How many snaps does it take you to know? I'm going to dominate this guy all day or this is going to be a little little bit of a challenge I before I even I know that some studies. I'm afraid that Jiang down before I'm already GonNa know his weaknesses knows what I feel. confident from what I've seen no things I've seen him get beat within that seen him probably you know try to do a certain move. He probably got a good count that you know reacting in in in blocked out so before the game you know going to making national confidence right there. You can't go to to test and you know all right away. You gotta go so that's what I do. I started before even the field and you you know that that before that I already got my my mood and I hear what I'm GonNa do dominate just had an and what I've seen them in coffins offense right away so pretty much on the field.

"With two guys on. ESPN RADIO AARON DONALD IS GONNA join us in about ten minutes the unblock a couple menace for the rams it's basically him and Khalil Mack and everyone else in turn in that sport in terms of guys who simply can't be blocked so that's about ten minutes from now for some reason billy was talking during the break defiantly about about if he had been the complaint desk last night on ESPN graphics yeah because ESPN pivoted very quickly they made a mistake they had we had all of the colors at our disposal and on the graphics screen yard down in distance. We made it yellow. That's the color you can't can't make it. 'cause you're confusing the viewer they think there's a penalty on every play and Billie is saying no nobody gets any credit for correcting that problem at halftime because because he wanted ESPN to double down on bothering the consume absolutely first of all there was no mistake made all right. There's a bunch of entitled viewers out there who who were complaining because ESPN tried something different were they were giving you the down and distance and they wanted to spice things up a little bit and throw some yellow on that graphic and it was like a neon yellow so it wasn't even like an NFL penalty flag yellow so they started complaining Omega every plan and what happens ESPN caves. Hey or we cave because they didn't want upset people. You know what I would have done if I was in charge of that I would have made every graphic on that screen yellow single little graphic on that scream yellow and lead them. Just keep telling me how confusing every imagine could you imagine in two thousand nineteen. You have the ability to complain enough enough that they're just going to change everything that they've planned in the offseason on the first week because of sending people because they're getting confused because I think that there's a penalty on the play. There's a part of me likes that I could sit on the couch though and instigate J of course. I'm sure that you were like watch. This Luca do we're GONNA DO THAT IS I. I mean that's the angry mom. Everyone likes angry about that. I can't watch Monday night this Bruin Monday night football for me over over yourself. You're going to keep watching the game. No one change the channel because of the yellow thing in the corner. I'm seeing highlight from the second Monday night game when they had already made the change. That's the black and white it looks good. They changed it in the middle of the first game at halftime planning on but this is why I'm telling you even though there's no real risk on those it was broadcast that you're taking because always now football is such kingsport that it is damn near impossible to make someone turn away from their television if they wanted to watch that game no matter what it is that you're doing but that right there billie is why it's so hard to get big changes of any kind in the booth because that's what you're met with any time you make any kind of change that people don't like I'm I am genuinely only curious to see how pat McAfee gets received by some of these college football towns that believed that the sport is sacred and why is is this announcer on our game being so opinionated and so different than everyone else why can't he just paint inside the lines and and make college football the cathedral that it is yeah but I don't know if you've watched McAfee like he. He's bringing down the game. This is not even close at Dennis Miller. He's just so happens to be funny but he's not disrespecting the game. He loves football. I know but think about this Mike in the history of broadcasts history of sports broadcasts give me all the guys that you've been listening to during the game and thought to yourself funny I mean I'm being put on the spot right now. I just don't think I don't think it's a chance that's worth taking because people expect the serious analysis so the wolves are good example but I'm just saying there aren't many it's hard to take those chances. That's the reason it's hard. Grit was funny for the wrong reasons yeah he was funding isn't suzy awesome. I felt good but not like a comedian funny funny because he's just saying enthusiastic football in John Madden. I think fits that category as well but he wasn't you you understand what I'm saying. He wasn't giving you funny opinions when you're watching these gas bag shows that you may or may not like on espn there any number of things that are that are light hearted. Even the pre game shows after bring in a comedian from the outside because usually they're just chuckle fests. GotTa go get the Funny Entertainment aamot from the entertainer. Now I've only seen parts of to McAfee games. He hasn't been at this long but he's not doing routine out there. He's just naturally charming and funny and his passion for the game as infectious not unlike some the people I just mentioned is actually very good at breaking down the game. I'm not saying good now but to your point though he does he does have a very good sense of humor and I think it some market some Serious College College Football Dad's he might. I don't know that if that people listening right now are saying to themselves what the hell do I need a sense of humor for think of all all the people who have broadcast Games play by play people and color people throughout the history of football. It's Don beebe is hired as the color color commentator. It's rich Gannon who's hired as the color commentary cater well to a degree. We talked about this discussing Tony Romo and why would you pay him ten million dollars. Tony Romo is in a weird spot not like some of the other higher profile people where he's not the only game in town your preference if he's on at the same time as a Fox game you might just settle in on a network at work because of their preference Thursday night football is going up against a ratings monster and Thursday night. NFL football so they get some of the people that are watching the game and hope that hey hey this guy's a little bit more out there than you're used to come here during the commercial breaks. Maybe makes you stick around bottom another one Stugatz Lacrosse. If you WANNA watch a game you're not not watching it because you don't care for McAfee right I mean you're watching that game but you're not watching apparently because they're using yellow graphics and it's so distracting that so you can pay attention to Monday night football anymore Aaron Donald Neck Donlevatar. I don't want your beak leaning over the plate. Stugatz step-back Jack this is live with our show with as to God's own. ESPN radio he is with us on behalf of Pizza Hut and their new hot hot wind challenge go to Hud Win Dot Com for more details. He's the two-time defensive player of the year. The last two seasons led the League in sacks last year here with twenty and a half. He's the most menacing thing to block in the entire sport a beast and he loves pizza evidently so we've got on an assortment of pizza questions for Aaron Donald. We're going to put you on the spot leading off. Thank you for joining US Chris. What do you have for Aaron Donald? I'm curious how he feels about people that use the Napkin to get Greece off their pizza. Let's just like it's the worst right yeah. That's that's. That's that's not a real piece of dude. You know you gotta ticket and then especially especially but you know what's better substitute for pizza sauce. I usually easily go with barbecue sauce substitute yeah. If you don't want everything go ahead. Go Go ahead. I actually don't even like pizza sauce. I don't like the folks at all. What wait wait how hey how does that work? nope pizza sauce every day. I get Pepperoni. I get started the circle them up. You know so it's just a sandwich just making a sandwich. You're breaking news. Is Delicious. Take a listen. If you say so. I'll try abby that's it. How about Pineapples on pizza? How do you feel about pineapples on a pizza? I'm I'm not a panel again because I talk Mr. Donald Armando respected beast but I think there are three things that go into a pizza dough the cheese and the sauce and you're telling me flatly. It's a pizza without the SAWS. I believe you won't push back. Do you want to reconsider. Perhaps whatever you say Sir that's my dad. was you know that's what I just you know all the top. You're going to navigate with no Sausalito grew up with that so that is something that you know I have to say. This must be your your phone. Line is perfect and everything about you is just amazing. Keep them in which you mentioned your father by the way because you were. I've read about you and you. You were a fat kid and your father sort of whipped you into into shape at a very early age age. I think you've described yourself as lazy right. Yes real lazy. I'm the type of guy the kid dollar snack and get my dad's bring the whole piece of pizza home and I think to myself and I'll leave us like so it took a while to get to that stage but you're just tournament and so can you tell us sort of what it is that your father's specifically was doing because those workout God sounded a little intense for a young Chubby teenager. Well you know I started probably looked at freeways Allama free weights and everything when I started when I was twelve years old you know he's he's telling me you know you see a change in the body and it just same way you kill yourself up in your everyday life but okay whatever so started working out. It didn't get on the schedule with personable changing your body's going the third working out so that that's what it comes down to a lot of people work out and you don't see the change but it takes time to change your body a little muscle start coming coming or vein. Possibly you never seen before It's for me it gotta give so stay with an overtime. If you know anything about it I pit in and the way back to like my dad told me translate it to my everyday license and also on the football field something that I felt like no you know can you do this and look good look good and feel you can't play my favorite he's with us on behalf of pizza and their new hot hot wind challenge go to Hud win dot dot com for more details Aaron Donald the most menacing defender in the league with us on ESPN radio..
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott back at practice
"The way zeke is now at practice for the cowboys. He signed his contract about fifty million bucks a year which is top of the class. It's in that todd gurley class and i know the rams this morning love their todd gurley contract is he got hurt but zeke zeke is an important player. I don't buy that zeke's the most important player i think dak prescott is the franchise. He's gonna make over double zeke makes he's the guy went in front of the microphone. He's the guy won't touch the ball late but zeke isn't a lot of wow he's twenty three touchdowns thirty five hundred yards but he went a bunch of games and i think he's a grown up in an adult and i think it's dax team. I don't think it's zeke's team. Although i think zeke is really talented. I think aaron donald really talented but i think it's jared goff's team in sean mcvay team not aaron donald in los angeles but i will say if you're a high school running back in college running back n._f._l. Running back this is a good day for you because zeke got paid and there is this narrative out there now that running backs analytically don't deserve the the money
"aaron donald" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"I just wanna spend five years here six years here and then i want to go somewhere else sheriff sure if you become a pillar in the community you know your way around if you're married you have kids in school. You don't want that but sometimes you you know the money they make an offer somewhere else or the the money that you seeking <hes> is not what you think it should be. It makes it difficult but if jerry jerry can get close to the number that zeke is asking but there's still no guarantee that he pitches career there because you know these contract did not baseball or basketball all contracts. You know what i'm saying where you okay a little different. Yeah this will get. You hope you'll get nervous labor day. We could ask labor day. I started next. Is it next monday more days shannon and then we can really get on this guy. We gotta go back to that top. One hundred list number we we started the show is aaron donald really the best player in the n._f._l. Enjoy this. We'll discuss that according to over forty n._f._l. Experts from e._s._p._n. Donald is the number one ranked player heading into this season. Donald has also been ranked at the top of both both pro football focuses top fifty list n._f._l. Networks top one hundred list already the rams defensive lineman as two straight defensive player of the year awards awards and donald racked up twenty and a half sacks last season and helped lead the rams to a super bowl appearance but skip yes. This is a question and for you. Do you agree that aaron. Donald is the best player in the n._f._l. I do not furthermore this is become the second most baffling fling phenomenon in all of sports because number one is dak prescott has not made three straight top one hundred type lists and now three straight ties. Is it up to three on aaron. Donald has made number one in all three and i just don't get it because i just don't see it. I'm gonna say it again. I watched a whole lot of lt as in lawrence taylor and he wreaked havoc every game i ever turned on my t._v. T._v. or sat in the press box for you just saw it. Oh they can't block him. I watched charles haley a whole bunch in his career here in san francisco versus dallas and then dallas versus san francisco trust me. You just couldn't block him. He flew off the edge was such rage rage that two people often couldn't block him and he leapt off your t._v. Screen until you said look look reggie. White wasn't always dominant but when he got cranked he became unblock. Oh by two people in the interior linemen sometimes three and he leapt off your screen because he took <unk> over football games. I have yet to watch one aaron. Donald game that he took over obviously is a very very good player but what he's the he's better than any quarterback. He's better than ma homeboy or tom brady van or drew brees. Are you kidding me. This is classic sheep think once again we're one expert said stroke dishes and earned dollar. He something he's dominating these games oh really he he does force double team blocks but then what happens he disappears. I was thinking early this morning before this. We're going to do this topic. Do i need any video video to demonstrate and i thought wait a second. There is no video because i don't know any highlights. I'm sorry i don't have a lot of highlights because in his postseason career aaron aaron donald has a half a sack last year in three playoff games he had zero sacks and i realized he plays more interior than edge edging but still if you're reggie white if you're that guy you just flash all over the place you get your hands on the quarterback so against dallas in the playoff game last year the two solos and zero assists and i don't remember him playing at new orleans and that plastic playoff game he had two solo tackles and zero sis against. It's the patriots he had one solo in the super. Bowl and four assists okay four sis- is okay but i don't remember him in the super bowl. I'm sorry i don't and yet in the big picture. I even go back to the first dallas game..

NFL Trade Rumors and Buzz
"And they're like what is the buzz about here? And I was like we'll Cuyler Murray's Wayne, but he's not even gonna test. Yeah, there there isn't mother isn't a there isn't one specific thing that people are really buzzing about I think there's a several position groups that are really interesting. I think the offensive linemen and the receivers have some really interesting players receivers, particularly there's like the whole spectrum of type of players. I mean, you've got decay Metcalf. You've got I came and then he got Markey's Brown, and like smaller shifty guys you've got AJ Brown who looks like a running back playing receiver. There's just all kinds of guys in. So there there's a lot of I think if you're if you're gonna say there's buzzer excitement about anything. It's it's watching receivers as watching the offensive lineman, obviously defensive lineman is going to be huge this week. Oh. Ed oliver. I think that was actually kind of an interesting thing this morning, he weighed in I think it to eighty seven. So that was a good way for him. That's plenty. Yeah. That's like more than what Aaron Donald waiting now. Obviously that's a comparison. That happens a lot. I don't think he's earned Donald. But he's a very good player very explosive and being at two eighty seven is a very good number for him. We'll see how he tests. I think that he over the next few days he could generate a lot of buzz of among the receivers. Is there anybody that you particularly like, it's just one of your guys? I think you came about a starting to he started to I I mean, I'm standing out to you a little bit. As things you've said to me in tweeted, I'm reticent to say, he's my guy because I there are worries with him in terms of drops and his like, he's just massively few look at his web chart on. Oh credible through the measurements. It's just he's like ninety eight th percentile in every day. Big, man. I think actually I heard that he set the record for wingspan at receiver position at the combine almost eighty four inch got. Yeah. So he's got an insane catch radius. I'm a little worried about like. You know, his ability to separate his his consistency as a catcher, but he has immense upside I'll put it that way like his ability to get behind. The defense is really good. He's really long strider really fast. So I wouldn't necessarily say he's like, you know, my pound the table guy. But I do like him a lot. I'm really interested to see how akilah Harry runs think. He's just kind of one of those guys that's really polarizing right now because we're from Arizona state. He he's a guy that is like really big physical super productive. But he's also sort like, there's he's kind of in the alshon Jeffery shor mold where you're like Kenny separate or is he gonna have to only sorta use his body in wind contested catches and things like that. I think he's going to be really interesting. The Stanford guy JJ JR Sega white said Whitehead is really interesting player. He's like form basketball player box out king. Like if you watch him they just throw it up into the end zone.

"And I mean, I figure that's only because they're short on funds. You get to Vegas, you start playing there. What not. You'll be making your money back instantly. Well, let's talk about Aaron Donald first before we get like into the whole glinting. It's a good deal. I mean, it's kind of like the whole Aaron Rodgers thing. What are you? Gonna? Do just let them walk away. No, you're not. Aaron, Donald me. I was asking the question while I mean there was talks about like the negotiations and all that does Aaron Donald affect the winds, like just add Winston schedule for the Rams because and I asked that because of the fact that the guys getting quarterback money right now after this, at the end of the segment, we'll be checking before we get into the raiders not we'll check in how much guaranteed money earn Aaron Donald making than all the other quarterbacks. But either way, like I said, I wasn't so sure if Aaron Donald added wins to that team the same way. I mean, you'll get dominant sue the dolphins. I use that example because dominant suit was dominant with Miami. It was easily their best player on the team. And I mean, it was well worth well played up to his worth for the contract. The only problem is no matter how well he was playing. It wasn't really helping the team win. But he didn't have that like that impact. You know, like the guy was dominating and all that doing his job, but it's just didn't get the team wins like the same way a quarterback went, and I only bring that up because these guys are making quarterback money. So I was associated that Aaron Donald had that kind of fact either way. Now, it doesn't matter because they did end up paying him. But I like the deal. I mean, the Rams are incomplete. When now mode, they don't get a Super Bowl within the next three years. And then it's a failure. And like I said, it's a good deal because. A lot of the money's coming in early that they have to pay. And by the time Gough needs his deal, you'll be able to do that. Kind of skeptical of the Rams at first with all the money they were given away, but it seems like they did have a plan as they should have, and this plan should workup..

"Aaron donald you'll get a sack aaron donald is allegedly seeking deal that will pay him more than twenty million per season he got nine thousand nine hundred twenty one and a half and then somebody else will come along and say on the twenty two right yeah somebody else will come is going to happen the market is gonna reset but but here's the difference though key you just mentioned two teams that is defined by his defense this is a team that led the league in scoring so in many ways is defined by his office not is that part of the reason why you're not seeing the impetus to sign him to that kind of money right away because this office came win a super bowl fences gonna win the super bowl for yeah these are the defense they've got some you're saying on offense but they've got really good pieces on d yeah so you're saying that we're seeing identity shift because last year they led the league scoring here's a now you're just going to be defined by the defense you just gotta office of mind coached it puts a point that likes to put a point but when you look at the games that they needed to score in the win it couldn't right lanta in when the team needed the defense the step up they could step up games that they needed them to and now they've reloaded on that side on defense or even stronger dole fall into this offense love they scored a lot of points on do that to yourself don't become claire player i mean those buffalo bills teams they didn't win championships but we don't talk about them known our failures but they had the best offense in.

"To be in this exact scenario next year which i guarantee you he's been looking at that's why he said what he did this week market is looking at this and say i know my time is coming yeah brandin cooks is in a scenario that aaron donald is lamarcus joyner playing on franchise tag we'll need to be resigned and dhamma consume on a one year contract so the rams have seventeen seventy two million and cap room for next year according to over the cab but that could definitely go away in a hurry when you consider some of the moves datum and how to make so it's one of those things where they've tried to maximize their window obviously but at the same time they've really complicated so many elements of this they're walking the tightrope this year honestly are its i and i get it i actually i think they're they're strata deji is sound in the fact that like we have a chance this year to win the super bowl i do think that they're a potential super bowl contender i'm not gonna say that they're the favorite ernie thing like that but i think they have enough town on that team to be a contender nancy so if anything they're just kinda like let's just do this balancing act for a year and then from after what happens this year will be able to figure out exactly like what direction we want to go in what guys we wanna keep how we're going to allocate all this extra cash base that we have like what guys are worth keeping and turning into like the core nucleus of our team because right now like you said the majority of the top paid guys on the team are new players so like you bring in all these new guys you don't necessarily know a ton about him and how they've ultimately finn and like they're worth longterm things like that so i think this is a year not only that they're going to contend but they can evaluate all these like new additions to like how they fit in what they wanna do and how they fit culturally and things like that so it's almost like this.

"They're all sides of this maybe the reasons behind some of the rams hasn't and let's start with aaron donald side which is very easy to understand player of the year right he is set to make less than seven million dollars this year on his fifth year option that is half of what dhamma consumer will make at the same position for the same team eighteen l gogel tree who is not on the rams anymore is making six point four million dollars to not play for the rams giants for those they were curious man i would say it's arguable that outside of the maybe the rookie quarterback contracts that are around you know whence they're starting to go by the wayside there are that many guys on rookie quarterback contracts do you feel her top level quarterbacks meter guys that can play but i think you already the winces and maybe a couple others at the most valuable contracts the entire league but i would say of non quarterbacks donald seven million is far the most valuable contract in the entire league and he's the best player in the nfl arguably at his position compared to his peers and you think about the guys at the top of the defender market your von miller making nineteen as an average annual value that contract present two years ago so donald was gonna get a record market setting contract for defensive players i believe he's worth it even as a defensive tackle that's fifteen million dollars or so more than he's going to be making right now this massive jump and he's one of the that contract is a hugely valuable piece for the rance so you can understand why aaron donald is a little peeved drain now i mean if you look at just if you taken away.
