This is the one that this this instigated the article <hes> thinking about Chuck Pagano because you lose Vic Fangio. Who is I think along with Wade Phillips the most most respected affected defensive mind in the game right well bill belichick sort of on an island up there by himself but you know throw in Romeo Coronel is another guy who's respected but we don't really we know what Chuck Pagano is? He had one year defensive coordinator with the Ravens where they finished third in defense with Ray Lewis Ed Reed Terrell suggs and then he went to the the colts and he never really had much town to work with on defense now he's token over a defense that is almost sure to regress to the mean just because they had a sky a high turnover rate loss very few games to injury last year and cannot and fifteen percent of drives with an interception like they did last year especially especially That defense every week to make up for their offense. I felt like an if you're if you're in the situation Pagano. You're going to get blamed from their earliest part of the season. It doesn't go well. Why would I want to take over some for someone who floundered before me you come in and you look on the other hand when you have a chance to work with Cleo Max Akiem Hicks Roquan Smith Dan Danny I mean they're absolutely loaded Jackson Kyle?

No matter how rough that gets this winter. There's always a ride waiting for you at home. The AFC is going to start with the football. I from the twenty five yard line and quarterback Patrick Mahomes one week removed from the disappointment of the chiefs losing in the AFC championship game at Arrowhead stadium. Tony, and I were there with one for that one. Patrick Mahomes is here is ready to play. He's got Keenan Allen and Jarvis Landry to his left. He's got tyreek hill to his. Right. You talking about that AFC championship game and thinking back after we call it was one of my favorite games of the year to call. But the discrepancy in place. The patriots have almost ninety four thirty seven points. Patrick Mahomes in this offense for the chiefs. Did it in forty seven ninety four for the patriots forty seven offensive plays. That's thirty one points. This kid. Explosive and you get tired kill Travis Kelsey in the rest of that. She's offense, and they're going to be a lot of fun to watch next. This chiefs team might be the favorite in the AFC for a long time moving from left to right. The shotgun. Snap to Mahomes. He'll throw on first down pressure comes throws over the middle. And he finds James Connor the running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers who takes it down to the forty three yard line. Bobby Wagner on the tackle. After an eighteen yard gain. And a first down. One thing that you know in the in the Pro Bowl Kevin is especially early there. The feeling out period. Kind of what the pace is going to be. It's changed every year. We saw tackle. That's something. We don't see that the rushing the passer, you know, sometimes it'd be more aggressive than others that time. Patch homes at all day. Mahomes of the gun. He's got Connor to his left on first down at the forty three yard line. He'll flip it to the right side on the past deflected and incomplete tipped by outcome Jenkins. The eagles strong safety out there to get a hand on that one in coverage in its second down and ten at the forty three yard line. Interesting thing with patch homes. He's down to stay in the pocket because there's no pass rush. These guys. When did we see him this year? Make some of the most amazing places running around by the off schedule play where he's throwing across his body. He'll be in the bucket. Most of the day because there's not much of a pass rush from this defensive front now a good chunk of his plays came on the run that was another big discrepancy in that AFC championship game last week between he and Tom Brady on second down. I'll play action quick toss. The Keenan Allen on the left side line at midfield ease into the NFC territory and Alan goes down with some contact from Darius slay at the forty two yard line of the NFC fifteen yard pickup and a first down to the AFC Keenan Allen. Vigo guy not probably is the go-to guy fulfilled rivers and chargers team under Anthony land that after the four start last year was one of the best teams record wise in the AFC great year this year couldn't get past the patriots to boy every year. They just find a way to get to the Super Bowl, and they hit that patriot wall in Foxborough on first down Mahomes with time again, I'll throw it short.

"Try and incorporate that into my routine, and so these are good things for Mitchell Trubisky to learn whether he was the first alternate or maybe Matt Ryan was and didn't want to go. But he's he's there. Right. And Russell was replacing Aaron Rodgers science technically he's starting to come down the list Toronto bits route. So if you you they selected three and Gough and Rodgers out so Wilson would be four. If Matt Ryan was ahead of them five. Mitchell would be number six on the list, which is fine. That's fine. So anyway, three one two three three two three seven seven six is our phone number again, Dan Wieder joins us with the latest on our Pro Bowl bears from Orlando coming up next. Do you have any concerns about Chuck Pagano at all becoming the new DC? I mean, I don't I don't I think he's going to be a little more aggressive than Vic Fangio. I talked to Dan dockage. And he said he covers the colts obviously down there in Indy. And he was not the biggest guy in terms of as a coach. And he's a really good, dude. I look back and they were eleven and five back to back years. They can't be that bad. Wins in the NFL back to back seasons is an easy, and he had a medical issue. Kimia while he was there. There was a lot going on with that team. And oh, by the way, Andrew luck was not getting protected at all, correct? They have completely changed things around that offensive line. They invested in it, and it's paying dividends and luck masala last year with the shoulder we didn't know year for a year ago. If Andrew luck was was really going to be able to play again, correct? Obviously he answered that question. And then some yeah. Effectively very effectively three one two three three two three seven seven six akiem Hicks. He looked like he was having so much fun at the Pro Bowl yesterday, a Danny? And I were looking at a little bit of video of him this morning. He's balancing around like this is what I've always wanted. It was just cool to see. Professional athletes who make stupid money, and they're just like little kids. They're just having fun. But like from akiem Hicks perspective like defensive line. What can you really do in the Pro Bowl like you're already? They're already handcuffed. It's almost it's two hand touch already pretty much. So. It's interesting. What I would like to know the mental process that the players in the trenches go through because like is it is it just like seven on seven. You know, is it. Is it like a walk through what where where do you put the intensity level as you get ready to study? Thank you ratchet up. I don't think you've taken tore it all to get ready to play. No, all right. We're going to take a fast time out. And then we're going to Orlando. Do you have a question you'd like to know about this Pro Bowl process with the bears comment on Mitch Trubisky? Three one two three three two three seven seven six bulls. Beaten soundly by land last night by twenty one. I was down in Peoria. I had the Bradley blow out of Illinois state wall. Were they bad last night? You're an ISU redbird fan. You were not happy with your team last night. They got crushed eighty five sixty eight technical foul, and Dan Muller the shoe coach blue that game open at the end of the first half. They made a run and then Bradley put them away. So interesting stuff three one two three three two three seven seven six. We'll be right back. Silly.

"That I hadn't seen in years pass. Yeah. There's confidence saying, yeah, I'm trying to get caught. I want you to hear I want everyone to hear. About the importance of even if you didn't get voted in even if you are an alternate what you can get out of being in that setting around a bunch of different guys. And we'll get to that. Because I gotta think even though again, I know he's an alternate. I know he wasn't ahead of Aaron Rodgers and ahead of whoever. Jared Goff drops out because he's in the Super Bowl Mitch gets to go, but his resume when he goes home. I was in the Pro Bowl pretty freidan cool. Yeah. And I think it just it adds to his resume it. It'll give him more experienced to handle the he's already he's already answering. The Cody parkey question, which is something that would have probably been held off until oh TA's. So he's already got that in the rear view mirror. Look, I think anytime you get an opportunity to be around the best to pick their brains to to talk about what you experience. Whether it's a Dak Prescott that he'll see in Orlando. Russell Wilson the things that you can gather from peers in your profession. I think is invaluable. Oh, you do that. Yeah. Yeah. So cool to see that. We'll see if he goes out and plays in just the big thing. The big takeaway from this weekend. We everyone stayed healthy. Well, yes, that's a good point. We'll talk to Dan Wieder coming up at nine thirty. I wanna ask because they've got those skills competitions. And remember, oh, I don't know how many years ago was but member there was the horrific the leg injury Edwards right back played out of Georgia. I believe and they were playing a flag football game on the beaten so severely Torp knee. I think he only had like. Very few carries the rest of his career. So these things that they're doing like, I know yesterday. Akiem Hicks took part in the forty yard splash. Does that's. Taxing does. But I wanna find out from Dan Wieder, exactly like what is the gridiron gauntlet? Is it, you know, is there are they ever putting themselves in harm's risk or. That no defensive lineman is going to be diving at a quarterback's legs. These guys are not that stupid. Max is in Valparaiso. Hey, max, welcome to the show. Can't love the. Well. No question. We've had a good year. And I just didn't know if you think that Matt Ryan for Trubisky being an alternate. I'll I'll hang up your look Matt Ryan's numbers are better than Mitchell Trubisky. So there's no question about that. None. But Matt Ryan has also been to the Pro Bowl. So should should Matt Ryan have gotten in there ahead of Mitch? Probably if you want to just go by numbers, I'm just being honest. I'm thrilled for Mitchell Trubisky and for the bears that they're able to get this. But if you want to just go by pure numbers, I know the bears were twelve and four and the falcons didn't make the playoffs. But Matt Ryan's numbers were eye-popping this year. They were really really good. And I would think if Atlantic gets better health they got banged up big time in terms of injuries. They get better health. They could be a team that bounces back in twenty nineteen book, the NFC south's always a wildcard it seems to be much like the NFC eastwards. Nobody stays on top for very long. You know, you'll see New Orleans you'll see Carolina you'll see Atlanta take a shot and just like in the east NFC east. It seemed to change quite a bit. Yeah. Look, they haven't they haven't been the same. In Atlanta for a while since since the through the meltdown in the Super Bowl. I want you to hear this cut. This is Dan Lobski yesterday on the show. We asked him about the importance of Mitch just being in the Pro Bowl environment, absolutely fantastic thing because you know, what? What? I have my father used to.

He'll join us coming up in about fifteen minutes. We'll check in with the chargers. Head coach. Anthony, Lynn and Jalen Smith, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker will stop by the program as well poll question. Mclovin. Okay. The first hour was which wildcard winner as best chance of reaching the Super Bowl. That's the LA. Chargers. Followed pretty closely by the colts. Now, we just switch it up to which wildcard loser. Would you buy stock in and the bears are the early leader? Yeah. I would buy into the bears. I'd like them to make the playoffs. And I thought that they could be dangerous in the playoffs when you host playoff games. But. L last night. Eagles gave them a chance. And Nick foles made them pay. I just I wasn't a dominating performance by the bears. Not defensively. I thought was sort of average you got to put pressure on Nick foles. They weren't able to do that gave them an opportunity. I you know, one of the reasons why I love this bears defense akiem Hicks. I thought that this is prior to getting Khalil Mack. I thought they were playoff team because he is great. He really is. He's great. Tariq owns gotta have the ball more than four times. I got got to put the ball in his hands. I thought Trubisky had moments last night. Yes. You had parkey who had field goal. That was tipped hits the upright, and you lose. But you let the eagles go down the field on that. Great defense in Chicago, and golden Tate and ends up with a touchdown. So you could ended it long before you were relying on Cody parkey to kick a game winning field goal. Yes. Mclovin. What do you think bears? Coach Matt Nagy. Like the the next. Sean McVeigh seems pretty awesome to me. I'd feel good about him. Yeah. But okay. What I don't understand is. How tree Cohen only has the ball four times. So if you're an offensive minded coach, and I have my best weapon there. I know. This isn't the typical bears offense. They do have some playmakers there. And I think Trubisky is a franchise quarterback. You should've won that game. And to me shouldn't have been close. You should have won that game by a couple of touchdowns. I really I really believe that. I'm not surprised the eagles one as I said in the first hour, I thought all four road teams. We're gonna win this weekend. I thought Seattle was going to win. In fact, I was probably as confident with Seattle as I was the chargers and all of a sudden Dallas played good defense. Ran the football and Seattle stayed with their game plan and stayed with it too long. But Dallas ends up winning. You got some great match-ups coming up. You know, the colts against Kansas City. I think that's an even matchup. And if I would have said that a month ago, you said, you're crazy. You really think the chiefs can hang with the colts. I think I mean it wait a minute. Are you I'm with your hot take? I mean, the cult of one four and playoff games are row against them. They have a one narrating. Yeah. Coulter to a win that game. Okay. Dallas against the Rams is interesting. I think the chargers. Poor chargers. One o'clock east coast. Make you go now one o'clock east coast. Make you go. Again, you went twelve and four, hey, we're going to reward you by playing at one couldn't you play at four o'clock like give them just a little bit. No, not gonna do that. We'll talk to their head coach. Anthony Lynn, he'll join us coming up in an hour. But there is the eagles against the saints in the fact that you're going to ask the saints to try to do what they did during the regular season against Philadelphia. And I know it's a big spread. But it just doesn't feel like it's going to be a blow out in my opinion. You know? It's just a weird feeling you have sometimes where you go. Philadelphia is not going to be as bad as they were the last time in the saints aren't going to be as dominating. I just don't I don't see it that way. Now, do I think the saints are going to win? Yes. I do. Yes. Michaela. You're too close. Because you have you made your pick in the preseason saints charter. Yeah. So it's hard for you to be biased. I think it's the biggest spread by far the saints have never lost playoff game with Peyton. I feel like I'm being unbiased. No, I know I feel like it looks like a blowout. An eagles fan. Because. The eagles on the road. How can they match up with all those weapons to saints is the eagles? I know it's a playoff football. Yes. Foles? Magic factor is seeping into your head is to why you think it's not going to be a dominating victory for the magic does that. Magic. It's just weird things happen here. And a team that wins a game that they probably shouldn't have won. And they have a motion. It's it's you know, you have you have these teams that have to get back into playoff football. So it's regular season football. And then it didn't mean anything their last game that the saints played the offense hasn't been great. And now all of a sudden the pressures on you, you're hosting the eagles coming to town, and you blew him out. I don't know these storylines. It's just it's weird. There's going to be one game this next weekend where you're gonna go. Wow. Didn't see that one coming. And is it going to be the eagles against the saints? Dallas. Is it going to be the chargers in New England colts in Kansas? You know, like somebody's going to surprise somebody. I think this next weekend usually happens that way, Dan. My people are telling me that sports betting is gonna be the hot new thing. Do you wanna play a little quick game calling called guest that line? Okay. Just came out with that. Okay. I guess that line brought to you by nobody. Alright chiefs colts chiefs are favored by how many.

"Number three. The offense control the clock. They have now Dun Karm last week predicated upon the dominance of the defense. And then the great third down conversion rate that the bears at eight to fourteen months, you set up the left right left. Right. I think that's when you're going to be able to get him on the inside gap from with the run wants to get them a little fatigue. I like it. I think that's the bears going to have to do key number four. I'm asking for his competence added. A specialty. That's it. That's it. Just be an average bar is not. Hi, I'm not setting the bar high. I don't accept the I don't expect anything exceptional just a level of competence that you should have in the NFL. Punt snap. Get the ball off sit in the right spot. If you're a punter or kicker, stay close to the bench, don't go where the big boys are the real football players are K avoid that big thick white line on the sideline. Okay. Stay on the bench. We don't need you to do anything and parking for the love of God. My man, whatever you do avoid the post at all caught. It was at Soldier Field practicing again this week of practice their thousand times. Okay. Hopefully, the kid one counted upon when they need them. We'll kick a field goal hope and I'm calling for seventeen thirteen bears victory and those are the keys to a. All right. We got a little time. Oh, by the way, forebears named first team. All pro how about that? What tight end was named? And we go and give the names of the guys at work. Well, Coloma Coloma. Eddie Jackson was fuller. Eddie jackson. It's recalling. I'm assuming the all pro title was Travis Kelsey, you are then who else beats hackers to take two tied in second team. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Because the only take one tight end, it's not right. Who's the second team tight end towards will probably J. They've only announced the first team at this is the second team is George KENDALL from San Francisco how he is pretty set records at one hundred twenty catches but Zach George will set a record for receiving an receiving yards. That's how much He had like. like one hundred thirteen hundred 's better than ever. Sixty three sixty three to be exact app. Yes. Sixty three touchdowns cads, very interesting. I'd wonder if the touchdowns even compare man is accurate that kind of year, and he's not the first or second team. All pro. I mean, that's shocking. I'm shocked so much for those kiddos really good. I think Zakar to the second best tight end in football after Kelsey to be honest. But that's just me. It's just a loaded position. I mean, it is right now it is loaded with three guy. Fair gronkowski. That's out. There is nowhere near the same. I listen Kelsey. It's it's the kid. That's coming to town here. What's his name? Erred, accurate, Zakar kennel. Yes. After that. Now, the one guy in Indianapolis had himself a year. Eric brown. Eric run it like twelve touchdown team fourteen times. So we Adam Schefter year. Finally and Evan Ingram. I think with the New York Giants really started to have heard a lot though. The second half. But next year if you don't have one of three tight ends gronkowski's on his way. Oh, yeah. Grindstone. You don't have one of three guys at the tight end position. The fall off there's tremendous when I say Bronx gronk stunt being gronk. Like. Still be a weapon, but the days of gronk being gronk. Those are in the path to disperse city in the bears offense can you ever count on a bear in a fantasy league? Again, man. I mean, I can't count on Ellen Robinson. No you can't count on. No. The only guy that was good a little while because he got in the end zone. Seven touchdowns. Did you weeks actually I had to during a deep leak Burton was going to be a surprise this year? So I'd saved myself. And I took trade Burton and a couple of weeks early on. It was great. Yeah. Last ten games. No gouda. No good whatsoever. It was awful. And I stole that from earth, by the way. No good. Yeah. Earth's had eleven hundred sixty three yards on one hundred sixteen catches how touched onto the he had eight touchdown. I study at ten. Okay. Sunday touchdowns and shorts. Cadle had thirteen seventy seven. That's a lot. A lot of the arts with Nick Mullins throwing comedy. Five at five. Okay. And Kelsey had thirteen thirty six and ten touchdowns. Chelsea's. Unbelievable. I mean, it's it's similar to the guys with the big yardage. It's similar to why akiem Hicks is getting squeezed out of defensive tackle. Because when I got Aaron Donald Fletcher, actress Cox. Yeah. Ten and a half and twenty and a half sacks electric Kocsis, especially when you've got seven and a half that just doesn't quite equate. Do we have time for a quick training? Daniel we out of time. Trend break. Sorry. Okay. Join us coming up at just after one live in Vegas will get the best plays of the weekend.

"Last year, we talked about this is one of the best offense of line and football was really the foundation for what that team did. Whether it was Carson Wentz ordinate foles in the backfield. And this year's are alone. Pro bowlers at guard. You know, I it's kinda shifted around there. So that interior battle between them and akiem Hicks on the other side that you know, all too. Well, Sara is just an absolute mutant on the defensive side of the ball, excluding even Khalil Mack. But I think on the other side for the bears because yet downfield passing with Mitchell hasn't always been before Taylor this offense. But on the other side that eagles de line has been balling them. And get a lot of pressure. You've seen a lot of Fletcher Cox, and Chris long, and the one thing that I always liked is an offensive lineman that help mitigate that is something that I think they do pretty well in the bears offense, which is the short area screen game with really either of them running back to read Cohen. Sure. Oh, exactly could be a huge. Game for him. And when you get it over the top of those alignment, again, you're just trying to make those guys think because if they're allowed to pin back and attack you're going to be in trouble. No matter who you are the bears again schematic advantage for them though. I think as an offense of line this year they've allowed the fewest amount of pressures in the NFL as much as I love Harry. He stand their offensive line coach was with me at Notre Dame. This is also partly because the offense that Matt Nagy is designed gets the ball out. Quick uses a lot of those run pass option and doesn't put them in. Specifically doesn't put their quarterback in position that often where he's going to be on duress might the last game. Obviously in the NFC is the Cowboys in the Seahawks and two teams made offense of line coaching changes this year. The difference was the Dow came at midseason with Marc Columbus stepping in. It feels like despite the fact that there are talented individual pieces on both offensive lines. The story of them is actually over achieving this year. Like, I think Seattle's gotten a ton out of what they have and same goes for Dallas. Where that the the loss of Travis Frederick before the season even got going. Yeah. And you saw that was a huge blow. And one of the trends you've seen posted in this. Recent CBA has been often lines in general going in each year. Whether it's.

"This Sunday their first playoff game in eight years. It'll be at Soldier Field. The three forty kickoff. Not only do the bears turned things around from last year. But as far as some players like akiem Hicks who's been around for a few years. Well, he knew thanks. What's been positive sooner? Rather than later. We had a lot of things in stock already. We we had a bunch of stuff in the back room and Nagy came in. He bought a lot of it to the forefront. And he brought in into new items and we've been playing well together, we just gelled well with the guy. That came in. And I think that made a real difference and the bears have opened as a six point favorite over the eagles on Sunday. Three forty kickoff at Soldier Field.

We'll find a way even though it looks like it's Baltimore's defensive wins. It. Yeah. I think that the chargers defense with their offense healthy. Now, I think they go on the road and win. This is the last thing we thirty seconds eagles eagles bears. It looks it. It it looks like it's gonna be. There's gonna be foles at at quarterback bears have made a lot of good quarterbacks.

L S U N UCF UCF tried to finish another unbeaten season. And after that, it'll be Ohio State in Washington. The rose bowls way. Busy busy day right here at ESPN one thousand cap will be back tomorrow as we gear up for previewing the bears taking on the Philadelphia Eagles bears back in the postseason. The Tribune today Chicago Tribune, yes, I'm the guy. I'm that guy that buys the newspapers, you may not have seen this. If you just looked online they have a little thing on the front page of the sports section. It says everything is not as it seems they go what are you talking about the four teams rewarded with buys the in the NFL playoffs. The saints Rams chiefs and patriots better be careful. This post-season some of the hottest teams in football will be playing on wild card weekend. So let's have a little fun bears fans. Here's a side by side. Look at the actual seatings of the twelve playoff teams compared with how the playoffs. Look based on only the last ten games of the season. Okay. I don't know who came up with this. But I didn't New Year's morning. It's very very interesting. Okay. The way the seatings are now saints thirteen and three number one. The Rams thirteen to three two bears twelve and four three. The Cowboys tenant six four Seahawks tenant six five and the eagles and seven are six. Okay. Now the way that the. One through six would look if you went based on the last ten games, the bears would be number one. They're nine in one over their last ten games. Winning the division the saints eight into the Cowboys seven three the Rams are seven three the Seahawks are seven and three the eagles who come into Soldier Field on Sunday six and four in their last ten games. I've heard people say, well, you know, how the eagles are playing better. Yeah. Six and four of their last ten games. It would change a little bit in the AFC to where the chiefs are number one seed right now twelve and four patriots eleven and five Texans. Eleven and five ravens at ten and six the way they've been playing the colts are nine and one in their last ten games. The chargers Rayton to patriots seven three the Steelers. Well, they were six and four but they're not even playing Texans. Eight and to the chiefs seven three the chiefs can do one thing the chiefs can score real well the chiefs can't play much defense. So it's very very cool to be going into the postseason hot. And that was one of the reasons I wanted the bears to play their guys against Minnesota. I wanted them to go in and get a win because momentum may or may not count. But if the players on your team and coaches on your team think momentum's of big thing, then you want to ride that momentum as long as you. And with Chicago Bears winning games over Minnesota. And the Rams and the Packers and Minnesota again and knock it off. All these teams that is something that you want to be able to take with you into the playoffs. A stat that I thought was interesting that I found this morning. Only four teams have led the NFL outright in scoring defense and takeaways since the nineteen seventy merger playoff results. In two thousand thirteen the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. They lead the NFL in outraged scoring defense and takeaways in two thousand the ravens they won the Super Bowl and in nineteen eighty five the bears won the Super Bowl leading the NFL in scoring defense and takeaways and this year the bears led the NFL in scoring defense and takeaways again, I'm not saying I'm just saying only four teams have done. This led the NFL and scoring defense and takeaways says the merger or they've gone on to win the Super Bowl. And there are people that think the bears this bears team can actually win the Super Bowl. There are numerous people that think that's a possibility. One of the things that the bears are very very happy. With is obviously either defensive side of the ball because you got a guy like akiem Hicks who was good last year. The addition of Khalil Mack this year and akiem Hicks. You step in his game up making the Pro Bowl heat said he talked after the. Game the other day on the team answering any adversity questions. There might have been actually negative today. And you.
