"alan robinson" Discussed on The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour
"Nfl dot com team at the three eleven and alan robinson completely third round tonight at the three twelve as edward and mike booze number one receiver so lottery. Feral going in In round three that is seven receivers going in in In the third round tonight. And i gotta wonder if you're in a format like this or maybe you're just drafting like normal affect pc slim on the website knowing that the running backs are going early. How do you exploit that. The the are you. Are you of the opinion where you want to load up on a couple of running backs right away and then scoop up the receivers in the third round like everybody else or do you wanna flip it like matinee andrew stoned tonight and avoid running backs altogether and then get target. Monsters like tyrod kills fund eggs and to some extent. Amari cooper is well. I like with both of these are doing and in a year's draft like we have this year so deep it wide receiver. I cannot argue. Who fled mandel is doing and if anybody's giving him trouble over dolphins i don't understand it. Dobbins is the lead running back for a team that is designed and directed and wants to fulfill their destiny by running the football. And he's going to get many many chances to do. Just that in that offense and so to have dogs in the third round is a wonderful thing..
NFL Franchise Tag: What it is and how it works
"What is a franchise tax. So you hear this word a lot. I always used to think franchise tag means. We're just gonna see that player on that specific team for the remaining of the season but there or for the next year but they're a little more complicated in that so every offseason teams have a two week window to plot to a one year franchise tag so once the player gets tagged they can either sign that contract or a long term extension. Which is the more i think. That's the more popular use of the franchise tag because a of teams don't want their their coveted players to hit free agency and they don't want another to swoop them without getting being able to offer them. I so these salaries for for each tag varies by position and the price is set by either adding the top five paid players from each position or it can be one hundred percent of a player's previous year's salary so twenty percent Increase in that salary so by position quarterback at least twenty six million a year with the franchise tag water. She was get seventeen million defensive ends get around seventeen million but less than receivers linebackers get fifteen million and so on and so forth. I think running backs get around ten million so it all depends on how guys are being being paid at that specific position so teams only can use this once a year and they can only use it on one player you can use it on the same player different years but yeah you can only had us one tag per year. There's different types of tags. There's an exclusive franchise tag which means players can't negotiate it all with other teams. There's a non exclusive franchise tag where other teams can make an offer and then The the team that has that player can match that offered and take the player And then there's a tradition. Tax tradition tags are similar to non-exclusive but players get an average of top ten position salaries instead of top five. So there's a little bit of a my discrepancy there and once the tag is applied teams have until mid july to renegotiate the contract. So like i said most common use for these franchise tag is not let a player. They want hit free agency. They wanna keep them around and then negotiate a more long-term deal to save some money and get under the cap for the foreseeable future so these somewhat can be slightly unfair A lot of players disliked the franchise tag for example on robinson is voiced his opinions against the franchise tag because it plays a lot of restrictions on upper-echelon players. So when a player like allen robinson gets franchise tagged they can't really find the real market value because they have that set price on them and if they wanted to go explore free agency then they could go interview with a bunch of teams test the waters and see what their actual worth is rather than getting a set number Just put on them so that's somewhat unfair This makes them have no financial security past one season. So if there's an injury then you know they just their value could just completely plummet. Under the franchise tag now players can hold out. That's really the only leverage they have in the su- situation but you know that's asking a lot of a player to put their public. Perception line put their reputation with the fans on the line and so most players don't do that but it has gotten to that point before so most cases players work at a deal for the tag comes into place in july which is the deadline for them to restructure. Or make that deal. So now i'm gonna get into what players have got tagged so far and What does that mean for. These teams moving forward. I player i wanted to discuss. Is alan robinson so. This one was obvious when it had to be done. Bears have a lot of uncertainty at the at the quarterback situation. So i don't think they wanted to make a long term deal without knowing where what direction they were gonna go with the quarterback. But you couldn't let player of this caliber and a player. This talented gopher nothing in return so in twenty twenty roms a career. High one hundred two passes for twelve hundred fifty yards. And he's only twenty seven which is pretty remarkable considering everything he's been through he had a tornado in two thousand seventeen with jacksonville. And he's really played with really bad quarterbacks over the years he's had blake bortles who's a backup slash bouncing around the league and he's played with mitch trubisky. Who's a failed first round pick for the chicago bears. And he's still been that he's had that production there no matter what. So i really wanna see robinson play with upper echelon quarterback and i just think if you give him a russell wilson someone who's above slightly above average maybe even just average than his numbers will go up. Even more is ridiculous so like i said he's a true number one receiver. I would argue top five in the league. He's either gonna play for seventeen million in two thousand twenty which is what his franchise tag number. I think he's looking for more around twenty million and easier gonna play under that contract or he can hold out. Which i think is definitely a possibility with this player just because of the displeasure. He's voiced on social media and kind of how players of rallied. His teammates have rallied rallied around him and they really want to see him get paid but when you look at the market value so he's gonna get paid seventeen million the tag next year.
Wide Receivers Were the Order of the Day on Franchise Tag Day
"Today was tagged a in the National Football League. We found out stars that we're getting the franchise tag, which may preclude them from Changing teams, and we found out some players that didn't get the franchise tag. Wide receivers were the order of the day and Alan Robinson gets the franchise tag. Chris Godwin gets the franchise tag will have more on Godwin and Brady coming up in a few minutes because this is a really big deal. But now who do you go after right? Who's the number one wide receiver you go after, and The guy who was going to be the beneficiary of this. And look, we've talked about who the three best wide receivers were gonna be in free agency this year, right? You and I did this about a month ago, and it was Robinson and it was Godwin and it was Kenny Golladay. You got it? And I know that that some people are going to be a little nervous. About Golladay. Oh, he was hurt. Last year, he was on pace for his best year in 2020 until he got hurt. I am so in on Kenny Golladay. Getting hurt last year doesn't concern me. You know anytime, you miss games, whether it's zits calf or it's a hamstring. It's not that big a deal right? And it's not something where wait. There's a big injury and maybe they're not going to be as fast as they once were. It's not that big a deal. I go after Kenny Golladay because he is everything. That a team's gonna want in a wide receiver. He can be the big target in the red zone. He's someone is going to stretch the defense. He is terrific. Listen. Matthew Stafford has been blessed with good wide receivers and great wide receivers his time in Detroit before he got traded to Los Angeles and Kenny Golladay. Is that good? I mean, he's going to get paid and He's the big winner today with the other guy's getting franchised and Kenny Golladay is going to get a lot of money and rightfully so, because he is extremely talented. I love the kid. Congratulations to him. Not only will he get out of Detroit and whatever the next phase of their world is, but he's going to get a mountain of cash to do it.

"Sure enough, even though Alan Robinson was not tagged in the post, he liked the post. So I ask you guys, most of us assume Allen Robinson wants out of here but shot or no shot. The Chicago Bears cannot afford to lose out on Robinson this offseason and must back the Brinks truck up to retain him. No shot. First of all, he's a hell of a player. He's not in my opinion. A top 10 0! My God, I have to break the Brinks truck caps coming down your offense. Is it good enough? You don't have a quarterback and you got the second oldest defense. And he wants Keenan Allen Money four for 84. Tag him and trade him and get some assets back is 12 million in what's in the brakes. Truck is 12 million in their 12 15 million Know Keenan Allen money, at least Okay, well, then, no shots. Sorry. And you know, just the tenor of the press conference. Maybe think that boy they're really into money. Was like the next guy and my God, if I wanted Marty Booker to be, Yeah, just like yeah, I just It's too bad, But here's the thing If I'm Alan Robinson is a businessman. I'm looking at this and saying, Well, who's the quarterback? Do not want to be. Larry Fitzgerald. Up in here has no shot at Larry Fitzgerald. Just that Larry, no matter who the quarterback is. He's staying in Arizona, right? No matter how much they paying, like up this world wannabe. Robinson still got good football to give, but he wants to be with an upper echelon quarterback. That's not gonna be here in Chicago. Just not gonna happen. Agree, so no shot. All right, gentlemen, the mega millions. Jackpot is at $850 Million. We has a show group. You too mellow myself, Jr In our boss, Mike Thomas have a show pot and we bought a bunch of tickets shot or no shot If we win 50% of us will be at work here tomorrow. Well, you won't wake up. Listen one time in years, and this is what I get. He says you'd be dead. Um I know I will be here. I'll be here like if if you truly and I gave the tickets Jr made copies already. Uh, if We won tonight. And I looked and go. Oh, God. We just want 850 million. And I think the buyout is like 600 something like that. Where today? What? No, It's not like your app. I don't want to catch out. No. Give me my money. Oh, after taxes. I think they have some payments like six. Take where you get paid for the next like 20 years or you could just get one lump sum where they take out all the taxes, right? I want the bunny a deal. No way would take the lump sum. So you think the money would dry up? At some point we wouldn't get our full share. Exactly. Thanks, Pritzker. Um, I gotta go Political Flintstone, and that's what Let's assume that we win and I call you guys go. It's 125 guy were in done. Still come in here and want to do the show every day. I'll be here done what I'm gonna do with myself. This is well, there's a couple things you could do, but nonetheless put on a apron and go. Hey, honey, I made a new recipe, did it? No. Oh, no. I'm gonna work. I want to do the show shot a car. No, absolutely. Oh, I don't know. It's a good recipe. Bad Look who's in the kitchen we'll use in the kitchen. The kitchen. I don't know what I'm gonna make it, Carm. Yeah, I'd be here. Absolutely. And 50% of us. I think we'd all be here. No shots of Miller. I would be here. Miller wouldn't be here and can't be here today would be a day after I'd be here. The celebration. I might be completely waste who come in here, but I'd be here You'd be broadcasting from home, Jeff. There's no question. No, I disagree the day after I'd be here two days later, maybe that Miller would be here until Capt handed him his envelope of cash. And then we would never see Miller again. I would be here. You could find me in the back of the limo exactly. Absolutely. Yes, Mr Hood. What would you like me have me waiting with for you? Absolutely. Oxen crown. Yep. The next January. I'll still be broadcasting. I'll just be in ST Thomas. Exactly Way..

"Everything on. Well, why don't you look at yourself first, man? I mean, dude, you scored three points in this game. I mean, I know it's nine. But no, it was three point it in. Quite honestly, You're an offensive guru. That's why you came here. And those stats that himbo just just put up on Dan talked about. That's not except in one night you've got in the playoffs, you know to at the last three years. Congratulations. That's because that the inner sees a hell of a lot weaker in the Air Sea. What the When I look at this, you know your guy at Northwestern Chicago kid that fits better because this guy that plays in Chicago this guy? I mean, I don't I don't like him. I don't like the way he doesn't take every day of bullet form. That's your job As a head coach, you don't make your quarterback. Take every woman. You take the day bullets, and that's why I don't respect about this. Rex Ryan knows that as a coach to that's a really good point. That is how solid solid point it's the coach's job to take those things. And Matt will say Well, yeah, we I should have done this. We should have done this. That But ultimately if you don't talk enough about Mitch, and you know you are putting it out him 3123323776. When McCaskey talked the other day, he was asked about What makes you confident? That Matt and Ryan Pace can get this quarterback thing right well and even talk about this without laughing. I don't first you had first you break. You have one of them, you know, lays. All of his hopes. Are Mitchell too risky than the other one says While we need Nick Foles, he knows the system and we see whether how that's worked out. Here's what McCaskey had to say. I think it's not Just that decision or those decisions. Like I said, it's the entire body of work those air significant decisions, of course on day that's part of the evaluation process. We just feel confident going into the offseason. That man and Ryan And do what's necessary to get the players. We need to be successful that there's a rival reason they just feel anybody excited now. Yeah, they just do this. So there was the other day, a clown car. Is that press conference? Just a clown car. They're all just shoved into a little VW, huh? Trying to rev up their base, which they failed miserably. They've told us nothing, but this is more of the same. Your passion? No, no, not at all. And there's so many questions a great piece in the Sun times today, where the three writers for the Sun Times Patrick Finley, Jason Leisure, and also Mark Potter ish. They went through a bunch of things. We'll talk about some of them with the first one that I don't know that was the station this week. And I want to say Sylvie and calm and a couple other people thought, I think so. He might have said a no brainer. About bringing Alan Robinson back Ella Robinson's contract's up. He made $15 million this year. He wants to make 20 Um We all wanted me 20. I want to make 700 win the lottery or whatever it was, but, um if they franchise tag him, he'll get about 18 18 5. So the question is Will the Bears keep Alan Robinson? That's a question I posted in the Sun times the question. I want to ask you a 3123323776. If you're a Bears fan. Should they keep Alan Robinson for 18, or $20 million with all the other things? This team needs the tackles and everything else now, Patrick Friendly said. Yes, they'll keep mother franchise tag. Jason Leisure said They have to now letting Robinson leaving free agency what it would have been an obvious choice of the various rebuilding. But how could they possibly claim to be making a serious push of the playoffs next season and let their best offensive player go? Mark Patti said Pace will find a way to keep Alan Robinson It's so typical of the Bears current plate that the player who best exemplifies the cherished culture that literally save paces job has been left to twist in the wind. Well, I don't I don't necessarily agree with that so much. I just don't think that you can afford to keep a high paid. Wide receiver when you're not. I know he had 100 catches. I know he had 1250 yards. Okay, I know those things. What You don't have a quarterback who's able to get him the ball right now that Yeah, that position alone is not going to save you. Where is the infrastructure? You know the offensive lineman that we need. No, Those are the things now what? We're officially not rebuilding. It seems like we are or no better yet. It actually sounds like we'll be rebuilding year after next year. Next year is just gonna be really, really bad. They're not. They're not. They're not necessarily rebuilding. Now they're not. All you're doing is just looking for the guy. They have a defense. That should be good. They actually suffered the second half of the season, but they're pretty much at the almost at the end of the run there. I mean, you know, and I wanted to bring this up to what To you was the main difference between 2018 and the years that followed because 2018 showed Promise fans yards an obvious those 12 data turnovers personnel. Fangio's an obvious one. Yeah, but you never style. What was really there Younger? There there. Young may be hungry when when we say younger, I mean, you know, next year, everybody's a year older. And this defense. I mean, Yeah, it seems like next year is going to really Really forces toe. Look at building that infrastructure. And I don't know if Alan Robinson is part of it because there's so many other questions. Yeah, I don't know that you need to spend 20 plus the salary caps coming down. You're going to spend that much money out of wide receiver. I don't think it makes sense. That's just me. Let's go to you guys. 3123323776. You're going out to Lake Forest and George Hello, George George. You guys, You know, I'm a little disappointed in you guys and the audience in general. You're in great. Don't you understand? We can put any product out there that we want And you guys got to accept it, No matter how crappy it is. Look, you're lucky you even have entertainment. During the pandemic here.

You've done play my play before having you okay? Give us a full 3rd 14 in the Bear's just pick up a big first down on the holes. The owner Robinson, We want realistic, realistic, so give me 13 14. It's It's Fool's tow Alan Robinson for eight yards Bulls tow Alan Robinson for eight years short of the state of the sticks, the punt unit has to come out. All right, okay. Falls under center. It's the snap was right. And they're short again. Already better. Salmon Moron Grove is Tyler better than Dick Stockton. Yeah, I'm sorry. But if he is Bad soft drinks and Brian Paces the palm pilot of like managers. I like it. I just did. You have to remember something There isn't a place section in the playbook for 1 50% of your line is trash. Potentially 100%. They were bad, you know, before Kyle Long decided to retire, and I was concerned when they didn't make any moves over the offseason to really remedy that situation. And I think one of remind you guys that you know. How Stan and much of the gold standard at this point, you know, with offensive genius Sam Adams that he is turns into the Michelob dry when when he has been injuries, as he does so. Thank you, Sam. I appreciate the phone call. I think that this is about this is AH Fourth wall stuff. But Randy Merkin, who produces Carmen and your co I believe he still has a working palm pilot that has numbers in it. You might like he's possible. He's got numbers to everyone. And I think some of them are on ice in a working palm pilot like the fact that that thing still works. I still have my first iPod The click wheel like I don't know why I still have it. Uh, what was your first iPod? The first one the one you were 35. So let's set the scene for town thing was, I was like 100 songs. How cool is this songs like No eso when we were freshmen in college. This is what happened in that winter. One people that we knew Friends of ours started gang, the school website where you could connect with other people from other schools. Facebook To face outcast had their double album release that winter. And then three. All of a sudden, randomly, every person on the street had white headphones. Going into their jacket because everyone just magically like at the snap of a finger. Everybody had an iPod. And it was like Jordan's where people said there would be reports That would say you other note. If you could use other headphones, you should. Oh, you're going to get mugged. Yes, Yes, the Yes, you are. Like I'd carry because I commuted my first year of college. I was carrying the book of CDs like It was part of my stuff in my bags like like a Discman. What do you mean? I could put 100 songs on this thing. That's like 10 albums ish. Yes, that's like we're like our freshman year of college was that that was the year that, like all of that stuff started happening and then and then mind blown. Guess what they're like, And now it's a phone and I said, Get out of town. Get out of town, so it will be a car. Maybe. Let's see Joe Tweet, the show actress Blocking at Adam May have dollar Don't forget about the Zune. We mentioned the junior absolutely Microsoft soon and then and it was very much so it was height. And then the iPod came out. Let's see what else we have A lot of really good responses here. Lot of demons in the chat. I see laser disc is mentioned in our Twitter handle. I had one friend that had a lot of laser discs. Jake mentions that Matt Nagy fell off harder than Pokemon Go. I think people still play poker Mark Times. Yeah, I've seen people wandering around with their phones looking for a battle. That's what they do. Right with the Pokemon. Go. Yeah. You collect them, and then they catch them all. What about Anthony? He suggests Waterworld. Member, the movie Waterworld. How much that was hyped as like the most expensive movie ever made, And then he was a complete dud at the box office. Coke, too, is mentioned. They labeled it as New Coke. And space, Bard says they lasted four months and stores. Ah, lot of Ah Crystal. Pepsi is well responding to what we think manages very hey was hyped as an offensive genius he gets here He is not an offensive. Gina's I'll care what you say. Quarterbacks offensive line any of this stuff? Abrogation show the key that I told you and I said that I thought it was a brilliant thought. But it was a dumb thought. It was a simple thought that Matt Nagy should have entered this game. And he should have coached it up Schematically as if he thought he was coaching with the back of quarterback because I didn't think he was going to be able to run his normal offense. With the offensive one they had, and you have to coach with the mindset of think about teams that use their defense. They have a backup quarterback that run the football they play, you know. Time of possession. They try and make things easy. Easy throws short, just gets a first down to get things moving. And I thought that that's what Matt Maggie had to do yesterday is coach an offensive game plan as if he was coaching with a backup quarterback. And They didn't. He tried to allow fools to go out there Run the full playbook, and clearly they can't do so And they're not good at it. Right now. This is a team that for the fifth time has failed to get to 65 yards or more. In a game. They've failed to score. 18 20 points or more. In 18 out of 41 games. It's 43%. I would imagine that that gets to 50%. This year. Based on who they have left on their schedule. Now I know they played some battle offensive they place a bad defense is coming up. But that doesn't matter. This was the worst third down defense in the league, and the Bears could only convert to third downs like this. It's It's almost laughable. How they continue to get worse on offense, and people will say, you know, it started because here's what happens, right? If you if you want to go through the week of what we hear as producers and hosts on ESPN, 1000 and the ESPN Chicago at wherever after salt, it's a free out. It's the I'm so angry. About the bears. Everyone's angry about the bears. Full phone lines on the Bears were all angry about the bears. Then like Tuesday..

"Those other topics Also, you know the NBA restart being officially announced. I do want to give everybody a chance to weigh in on the best wide receiver conversation. We've been having thus far on the show and a lot of a lot of interaction a lot of responses because there's no definitive answer, and there are a lot of ones that cannot be dismissed as incorrect. You know, I think All right. Let Auntie let's play this. Let me Ah, let me let me let me flip it this way for a second. I'm going to tell you the name and you tell me whether or not That is, ah! Like just you can't say that so best wide receiver in the game, DeAndre Hopkins. I'm okay with that. Best wide receiver in the game. Let's say Michael Thomas, absolutely best wide receiver in the game. Let's say Divide the Adams Yes. Best wide receiver in the game is Tyree Kill. He definitely deserved to be in the conversation. He is the most explosive player. I think with the football when he gets the ball in his hands, Watch out. He's dangerous. Might be the most dangerous guy in the NFL. He would scare me more than any of these other guys. So that puts him in the conversation for me, Julio Jones. Yes, he still up there in the conversation. Ah, Alan Robinson. No, I'm I get very good receiver. I I still have a hard time putting him up there with guys like Michael Thomas and Ah Hopkins. Metcalf is a beast. I love him. He's so came back after let's go. Yeah, yeah, he's so six. Ah, Keenan Allen. Yes, keen. Alan's very good. Antonio Brown Antonio Brown. Again. I think this certain levels through all this. Obviously, some guys are better than the mean. Mike Evans is very good. If we're like forming a top 10 Mike Mike Evans hasn't been mentioned by gosh, That's a number yet so Point is right, like there's more than five that I think you could. Somewhere between five and 10. I think that you could say is the best in the Game five and 10 wide receivers and not being like, not be dismissed. I think that's fair. At this point, we've gotten to that. So more than five wide receiver somewhere between five and 10. Who you could make a case is the best in the game. Mike Evans has also what do you think of Godwin? Yes. A beast there, too. Yeah, Obviously, I just and again, you know, you stink about some of the quarter packs. The guys in Tampa Bay have had to deal with the consistent quarterback play. Me over the years like McCown and Glennon and Winston Fitzpatrick. Now they've got who's the quarterback in Tampa? A man who is escaping me. The court back in Tampa. Who is the Buccaneers quarterback right now? Oh, yeah, Somebody a 5 to 1 to 42 to 7855 to 124227. Let's go to spike in Jersey. Spike the Europe Thanks on the show. What's going on, man? Hey, How's my buddy doing? Everything cool. Everything's good. How are you doing, sir? You feel going great until I'm doing great. I'm talking to you moving to Florida. Get away from this cold weather. Can't wait for the hoops to start. We'll let me go. Let me go. Answer the question of the politically correct No question in my mind if you had one place Super Bowl last place the third and goal from the 12. I throw the ball up in the air to DeAndre Hopkins. Cause he is. I don't know what the stacks all on and my eyeballs. Tell me he don't drop everything. And the guys just got Gu are not the fastest guy, not the tallest guy. I watched him in college. Little bit. Clemson. I'll believe just like money. Money like your hopes. Die. I'ma hopes guy. That's the guy before three bad called about Damien Lillard. I got a number six or seven just to get you on the phone, and I got a number six or seven right now in the MBA. That was the best player in the world. But that's another conversation. It is a question for you. Who's better. Damian Lillard, Jimmy Butler. Get me a little. Give me Bubba is stock, so to speak. It went up, but his skills are not. There would be other guys. He's tenacious, more explosive offensive player. But when you factor in what Jimmy does defensively, what he could do is a distributor and you know, like all across the court, like That's part of that was, I think, if you're you're going the 10 best players in the NBA. Obviously LeBron, right number one top three. Undisputed to make sure you're talking about real abroad and quite quite Yeah, okay. And then you get to harden. Johannes, not in order. I'm just listing off guys Harden, Yannis Luca 80 Davis. And then at that point, you know it's it's getting real nit picky. I think about whether it's it's Dame. Whether it's it's Jimmy, whether it's Kyrie. Ah, but you know about Steph Curry. You know, I talk to other people about that, too. And penalizing Steph Curry because his team went through a re gentrification, so to speak, and will be interesting to see what they do this year. But, you know, I'm gonna poke the bear and the bear. LeBron still in his fine. We've been talking from five years about it. I see the smile on your face. He still in his prime, and I'll argue that until the cows come home with you What? Maybe I agree still in his prime, But I was, I think you did You hang on to something I said a little while ago that leads on the outside of his prime, like or your age you were five in the morning. One morning told me that you think he's starting to look good, You know, lose a little of his game and my point to you was, you can't play as well defensively and offensively, and he's improved his offensive again. He's not in his athletic prime, but he's made up for that by developing his skill and therefore he's still in his front. Having the longest we've ever seen from this job, John. He's basically become Magic Johnson in terms of seeing the court with all the athleticism at 35 years old, it is amazing to me. I've never seen an athlete as good as him as an advanced age, We'll see. Okay, D comes back because he's right there When he's right. He's like they're his defensive game has improved. No, no. Duran is a terror. I can't wait to see on Spike. Thanks for the call, Man. Always good talking to you. I can't wait to see Ah, Katie in Brooklyn and what that seam looks like you get into a little basketball in just a minute because it is newsy, given that the turnaround time the season was announced December 22nd The embassy will return. Just spend a few minutes on that coming up. But Paul in Toronto wants to weigh in on the wide receiver conversation. Paul, you're up next here on CBS Sports Radio. What's up all morning? Ah, just want to say big fan the show. And Ah, yeah, Faras. Why receivers go. It's got to be a B. I know it's not in the game right now. But When he comes back here with all the weapons around him, and you got Tom Brady's slinging the ball Now I think you're going to see the second chance come back, and I think he's going to take full opportunity. By the end of the season. All the haters on Abie are gonna have to turn their tell. They're gonna have to take a surer of the most.

"Bears might still be in this. They need to go for a two point conversion. Down 19 to 9 with a minute 35 to play. You know what the most impressive thing Obviously, the catch with their ability to toe tap to toe Tappy got in was really, really special reviews penned on the sideline. Now the Bears need to make this an eight point game bulls in the gun Montgomery to his left gets the handoff. Montgomery shoots into the end zone. Move into his life for two, so the Bears make it a one possession game. It is 19 to 11 after Nick Foles touchdown past Alan Robinson. Then the two point score by David Montgomery Minute 35 to go in, the Bears will need to recover an onside kick. How many times you think teams running NFL show that Dallas Cowboy Atlanta Falcons Onside kick. Every time you think that got shown around town, make sure everybody understands the rules. Bears only have one time out left so they don't recover. This game is effectively over. Some life here on the fourth quarter drive at the end. There's a table to take it in for eight balls going to Alan Robinson a great job getting his feet inbounds to depend on the sideline. Really good adjustment. There's when eight plays 90 yards a place 90 yards Robinson over 100 yards for the day. Also had 100 plus yards last week. 1 23 a week ago. 101 today. The Bears will kick it off. Cairo. Santos just bumps it on side kick and it's recovered quickly by Indianapolis on the right side of the field at the 47 yard line. Pick it up. Trey Burton was in on the hands Team Cairo Santos is one for 10 in his career on onside kick attempts holds got that one really, without much trouble trouble. How are you feeling now? Ever. You know you've heard about the talk about instead of going on side. You want to take it? So what was it 4th and 15. Instead of going on sidekick to see if you get the first down. Would you be a favor for that new rule?.

"All right. Got to Robert Woods. That's a touchdown pass for 25 yards. The bill still lead 28 Ram 17. But here come the ramps. Like I said, they're awake, and they're not going down without a fight. So the bills up by 11 is that enough? They need to pad that because the Rams are coming and they're coming quick. You know that Ram's offense. We talked about it earlier is dying is dynamic. They can put points on the board fast. I also just don't. I'm not his biggest believer in this Ram's defense, and if this is going to come down to putting points up I'm fully confident the bills can match them scoring points in this one. I just think there is a look at the Rams that school if they're going to start to do something offensively, But can they stop Josh Alan and this bill's offense that remains to be seen? Yes, that does remain to be seen. Chris Boswell made a 26 yard field goal for the Steelers. However, the Texans are still up by one. So it's Texans 21 Steelers 20. Also, Stephen gets Kowski 51 Yard Field goal. Viking 17, Titans twelve's the Vikings, still hanging on there by five over the Titans. Interestingly enough. Do we have an update on that touchdown from Nick Foles? Alan Robinson? I know it's under review. And it was a close one is it is it an interception isn't a touchdown. We're still gonna be a tough call. To tell you to me. It was a go up and get the football. Alan Robinson High pointed that thing, But Denard made a very physical attempt at the football and when they came down to the ground Denard, the defender had that football. So to me that looked like an interception if it wass, but you have to overturn. It isn't enough to overturn it may look like it. Wass again. Just tell Teo let everybody know That's not our Nick Foles. Nick Foles. Three great football. That's just a phenomenal It's a blind defensive play if that's a turnover, But regardless, the narrative in the story that needs to be told here immediately is you feel a buzz. You feel a renewed sense of confidence from this bear's offenses. They moved the chains to even be in the position. They're from a well placed ball from Nick Foles to maybe have six. Either way. This was in a move that was inevitable that clearly had to be done, and it's being done with three in week three when I thought It's your business was going to have this spot for the year. I thought they were really going to invent now weigh him being the guy. And I think this is going to go the other way way. I tell you that I not tell you they would have a short leash with Travis. Katie was right. You are, I said from the everyone's freaking out that he was named the starting quarterback. Unlike listen, the man plays well against the lions he can win against The Giants let him in for those first two weeks, then we'll have an extremely short leash. You know what happened? The leash was extremely short. Whether or not this is a touchdown or not for Nick Foles. It's an interception. The point is, he struggled in this game against the defense. That's not very good at all in the Falcons and you throw in Nick Foles, and now do you go back? I don't even know how what you do if you're mad, Maggie, I think you just ride with fools. Now from here on out, we do have an update in the Niners Giants game. The 19 yard touchdown for the San Francisco 40 Niners. So it's 23 right now. Niners Giants nine again. That game has just been plagued by injuries. Both teams There's issues with that ground. I don't know what's going on Somehow, the last two weeks, the 40 Niners, despite all the injuries are finding ways to win. So again, the Niners are up 23 to 9. Huge play just happened. In the Titans Vikings game will tell you about it next, and I'll let you know if that bears touchdown was overturned or not. That's coming up on ESPN radio coming up Monday, week three in the NFL and the Marquis matchup is Monday night.

He's in the last year deal. He'd like a new contract and the fact that he is basically removing references to the bears on his social media platforms. An old trick also a new trick, but it also tells you a lot about players mindset, Alan Robinson not happy with the bears at this point in time.

He's locked in Hample out 1147 receiving yards for a rob Blaster. Yes, o b. How are you? Wait by the way, O B before you go on your diatribe. Excuse me. Matt. Maggie, the mastermind. Now, after three years has figured out there's a different and practicing and game tempo. Three years. He's got a big words. I just said, why you you stole my world. I'm just saying he's he's Hey, Nate. He's locked in. He's picking up practice is different than a game. Yes, it is. And I just, you know, mentioning About that. Those 2 ft outs to the tight in or the white out and that slipper bubble screen that's got to stop and I said mentioned my God. Maggie, let those kids go, let move ball down the field and attack. And there's there's one really strong reason why last year in the National Football League yards per attempt, we were 6.1. We were the worst team in the National Football League. And why stop with the 2 ft out and a slip and bubble screen. Go deep fly patterns, post patterns crossing ends. My God played big time football. I don't know 6.1 is the attempt to force it in a league Worst in the league. Now you're being negative, Obie. No, I'm just stating a fact. And I practiced. Okay, then I don't want to see where you got a white out that you're paying 12,000,002. And you got a quarterback. This making 12 20 million and you're going to throw a 2 ft out. When it's third and seven. Give me a break. Did you see during training camp hero Be that there was rhetoric coming out of Palace Hall that the coaches were a little upset that neither Nick Foles nor Mr Biscuit. We're going down the field that they were trying to not throw interceptions because they wanted to impress the coaches. Because if you did see that, I think you would have had a Obi style reaction. Well, it's yuck! Okay, just yuck. Do you Would you see that Hamp back in the day like I was trying to impress and trying to get by and not really trying to push the offense to see what's possible. You know, everybody has a certain you know, envelope of comfort. They want to do what they think they can do and get away with and not make it. The mistake. The mistake in the NFL is going the interception. If I mean look at the great ones, and what what is the common denominator? Well, sure, they got a lot of yards, but they don't make those mistakes. Well, obviously, folds and Ribowsky were saying, the last thing we're going to do is force the ball down the field and make a mistake and he and put herself behind the eight ball end. You know, maybe the other guy starts so that being said Nobody was daring. Nobody was creative. Nobody was trying, you know, stick, you know, stick the ball where it needs to be against NFL defenses. And Yeah, Last time I checked, those were practices. Those those weren't preseason games so if they were scared to do it in practice Oh, boy. Here we go. Well, I hope that's not the fact and I just really, You know the stuff I've been telling you folks are actual effects. And the words are from those air Maggie's words that I have been talking about here, okay? Oh, my God. You've only got 16 games and you've got people. You're players are making tons and tons and millions of dollars. A lot of it Guaranteed. You got coaches. You got head coach. That makes what? 78 10 15 $2030 million yet offensive coordinator defensive coordinators. Make it $23456 million position coaches, several $100,000. And and I'm a little bit tired of seeing this offense go out there. From your dear from week to week in a 16 game schedule and not attacking downfield. It just doesn't make sense. All you have to do Lookit all the top quarterbacks in the league from Mahomes Toe Rogers to Brady. All of them. You see them thrown when it's third and seven. Do you see them thrown a 2 ft out. Hoping and praying to God that whoever catches the ball can break a tackle and at least get 7.5 yards. That's what's been happening. Folks you've got to stop playing is scared to death, this controlled type of offense. That's not how it works. The rules tell you they give you every break in the game offensively, take advantage of it. You've got the first six games this year you can win. My God. Do it. Just do it. Okay? Why don't we go to some callers here Carved 312981 72 100 Mark and create. You're the first caller to happen. O B in 2020. Congratulations. Welcome to W g. N go ahead.

"Defense is crazy. I think we all agree that on the defensive side of the ball, they're ready to roll. It's it's their their playoff caliber football. It's what's going to happen on the offense inside the ball. If they could figure out who the quarterback is going to be if the offensive line could do anything, if they finally figure out if they have a tight end Alan Robinson is going to get any help on the other side of the field. Those air the big questions going into training camp. I don't disagree. Now. This is Like Obviously, every year is a big year. We could say that every year The important thing is, there's a lot of guys who are playing for their career and their future paydays. Alan Robinson wants to get paid unless they get it done before the season. He's gotta have a big year. Mitchell Travis Key. He's playing for his football life. He's gotta have a big year. The wide receiver position beside Alan Anthony Miller. Now it's time to stay healthy. It's time to play. The Bears traded up to get him in a lot of people praise that picked when they made it. Thought that guy's a stud. Well, he's been OK, but he has a bit of guy. Oh, my God, I gotta have Anthony Miller. So this is a big year. It's time to emerge. If you're given whims. I don't want to hear what that guy has got a lot of ability, he's goingto emerge someday. It's time to put up or shut up. Jovan whims. Riley Ridley. It's time to Seymour at the tight end position, so there's a lot of things that if they all step up and play well, bode well for the Bears is this Is this a make or break year in terms of the bears as Faras? If they're bad, If they're 18 8 you know if they're nine and seven, they don't make the playoffs. Is this the year where we're going to say? Well, all right, this core group that we've done so well with specifically on the defensive side, the ball we're going to have to start rebuilding from scratch everything and just tear it all down. We'll know. Alright. David Montgomery isn't the running back. We thought he was Theofanis of line is not any better. The defense. We're going after move some pieces to get better in other places. Um That's how you wind. The window is not going to be opened on this defense forever. If the offensive side of the ball this year doesn't pull its weight, you're going to have to do something you can't keep. You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and hoping for a different result. Right eventually, Jacksonville Said enough with Blake Bortles and they moved on. They haven't replaced him yet. Bill, but they got rid of Jalen Ramsey. They realised. All right, Listen, We're not winning the way that we have things set up. We have great pieces in place, and we're having success in certain areas. But we're not winning games. That was really my question. Like at the end of this year. If the Bears don't have the success do they have to reevaluate and say Maybe we have to do things totally different pens. How they get there like if you tell me they start out member of the year. They were seven and one in the J threw a pick and tried to make a tackle and blew out his thumb and that ended his season. Remember that I was trying to tackle? I believe it was against the Giants, wasn't it? No Chargers chart, maybe the charge. I really don't remember many of Jay's interception because they were so few and far between. DeAngelo Hall says. I got four I'm sitting on my Casey, You got four of Jay's career ate in the Bear's uniform. Well, the Thing will be how they get there like Oh, my God. The Bears are nine and two, and then all of a sudden they get To horrific injuries, and it ends up costing them their season. Then no If you tell me, they start out two and six, and all of a sudden you go. Oh, boy. That season's over and Mitch plays bad and fulls plays bad in the old line blocks back. Then there's going to be changed. Coming. Absolutely, and there should be You have a right to demand that this football team has spent enough money and enough of your time that they should be good or it's time to change what you're doing. I agree. Absolutely, Absolutely. That's where I'm at. You know, I like Ryan. He's put a great defense together if they go out this year, and they're six and 10 7 and nine, and it's not because they got 12 horrific injuries, they don't play well. Then you have to question the people that are making the decisions. And that's just the big boy world that we live in. 3123323776 If you have a comment question, thought, one star player in our town and I'm talking star level.

"So the Bears ring 28th on Barn Wells list. The only teams that are worse. The affirmation Washington team the Jaguars. I think they were dead last going in the last year another they've gone up one spot, guys. The Dolphins and the Jets. And the criteria here is contract value doesn't matter. Only 2020 matters wide receivers matter more than other positions in top level talent. Is worth more than depth. And basically what he's trying to accomplish. Here is imagine if every team's running backs wide receivers and tight ends or dropped onto a brand new team with an average quarterback and average old line in an average coaching staff, which offense would be the most productive after you throw the likes of the Shawn Watson and Kyle Shanahan out the window, so that's what they're going for here and the bears or 28 he writes. Robinson deserves. Alan Robinson deserves better than this. Having spent his entire career catching passes from Blake Bortles and Mitchell Travis Key, He'll get a comparative upgrade this season If the Bears start Nick Foles, the former Penn State star held up his end of the bargain a year ago, racking up nearly 1200 yards, seven touchdowns on 154 targets. Anthony Miller finished the season with 656 yards and average nearly 1.5 yards per route run. But drops and shoulder injuries have been a concern through his 1st 2 seasons and the former second round are likely profiles best as a full time slot receiver. The other weapons on this roster of failed to live up to expectations, although much of that was due to injuries. So Rico in seven drops on 103 targets were the exception. And then he talks about a few of the new additions like Ted Ginn Jr and Jimmy Graham older later in their careers. I also don't blame too many of those drops on Cohen. I guess I should go back and look at all of them. But remember where to Rico was getting the ball thrown to him on a lot of those little ridiculous passes down the line of scrimmage, where he's trying to burst upfield and the ball's going to his back. Shoulders. Ridiculous. Maybe they don't count that as a drop. I don't know how they work that data, But to Rico in ain't the problem. No. And anybody that expect too much expect too much on its Rico need to readjust. Their expectations. But like Jeff, Van Gundy once said, You know, if you think Terry Cone is the problem, you don't know the answer. Mormons in Mount Greenwood on the southwest side on ESPN 1000. What's up, Gorman?

But my favorite logo is the Blackhawks and One of my favorite hat is the one with the sea with the two actors they had to change. It's just that I think they would be in pretty good shape and I look that might not even be good enough. If they really feel mounting pressure if they feel like they want to do something that gets rid of all the Native American imagery, I do like that one to their logo's look. I think it's great. Yeah, I do. But I also understand that could be extremely offensive to people and you have to be understanding of that, and I am understanding of it. So I think it's great. I do. I think most people would tell you even if you're not a hockey fan, most people would look at north for years have looked across North America and sports and said, Man, that black cock logo is the coolest logo in sports. It's beautiful. It's majestic, Its colorful like it's everything you know you want it to be. But if an entire race of people looks at that, and says We don't like it and it's offensive to us. How are we supposed to just thumb our nose at that? I don't think that's the right attitude to have. So if they feel like they should change it someday, So be it. I'll continue to be a Chicago Hawks fan or whatever they're called. All right. We got to take a quick break when we come back, So our guy's going to join us, right?

That is half a $1,000,000,000 here in Chicago, one player that is waiting for his extension. He's got one year left on his deal. He's going to make $13 million this year. He scored seven touchdowns last year for the Bears. That would be one Alan Robinson. We're still waiting for Alan Robinson's extension, hopefully gets done before training camp. We all assume here in Chicago. That Alan Robinson wants to be a bear. He's very involved in the community here. He's been a great representative, the team we've all had him on a few times. He's a great interview. He's a great guy. Ultimately, I don't understand what the holdup is in getting Alan Robinson his money. Why is there a holdup and getting your Modi did not? Look? It's the Bears. Of course I'm not there. You shocked at the Bear's notices. This way. It's the Bears. Of course, I'm not sure I ever played for the Bears. What? It's like negotiating a deal with them. But if you want to take the attention away from, you know, I know they don't care about this stuff. A patron home signs this huge deal. You know, everybody brings up Travis Key. All the jokes about Travis Skier there. The San Bui comparisons all that kind of stuff. Everything is there. Signed the one guy on offense. You're most talented offensive player. So what was he making on the deal that he had signed? Previously was like 13. $14 million. Yes. Oh, he's scheduled to make 13 million Thiss year. He made 14 million last year. And 15 million the year before. Top 10 wide receiver according to you, Yes, top 10 wide receiver in the late I think so. Yes, yes. Or I think Alan for that telling the others aren't here because it's lying here. I think he has the talent for that. He also had Blake Bortles initial true biscuits, and that would be my argument. Listen, if I go someplace else, I'm gonna be getting a ton of catches. If I go to New Orleans, I'll become Michael time. Oh, yeah, Absolutely. So that would be his argument to the Bears. I don't mind being here. I like being here. But you've got to pay me like an elite receiver and the fact that your quarterbacks and this offense hasn't quite been Lee is not incumbent or not to be blamed on me. I'm the one bright spot here. That you can't take advantage. So let's take advantage of it by getting somebody back there that can throw the ball to me well, because my concern is they go into the season with no deal. He doesn't sign an extension. He's successful with Nick Foles, but decides he wants to go somewhere else because he's getting he's getting a better offer. He's gone. And now what offensive weapons? Do you have Coal committee who we don't know what kind of tight end he's going to be, because then you have to draft wide receiver Khun Franchise. You could franchise him. But then what good does I mean, when you create animosity between plants a lovely Yes. You don't want that right now. You're on good terms. We think I understand why you'd want to know what What dollar amount are you going to get him for? Didn't the Andrea Hopkins or one of your wide receivers just signed a contract that's paying in $20 million a year. If this guy's a top 10 wide receiver, you gotta pay him 18 million. The very least get $18 million. Do you think he's worth $18 million? Why? There's very few players. I think that'll work. $18 million you're talking about. 18 minutes 10% of the camp. A little less than 10% of the cap DeAndre Hopkins making He's making 12 million this year. He'll make 13.5 next year in 14 million the year after he's unrestricted in 2023. I'm just trying to figure out what the top wide receivers are making snot. DeAndre Hopkins, Michael tell What's Omari Cooper make Amari Cooper is the one that you're going to have to go ahead and take a look at it because Mark Cooper was a failure in Oakland. Not of his fault. But he ended up going over to a Dallas and he looked pretty good. He's making 20 million. There You go thinking Tamari Cooper's deal that makes 20 year. Okay? He's just hanging 18 million. You want 18 $90 million contract? Because if I'm the Bears, I could go to him and say, Look, a Marquis Cooper's got the numbers. You say you're good, and we know you're good. And the talent is there not a negotiating. I understand that, but I'm not giving him $20 million. You're given 18 17 90 million. Over five years, Okay? And you're happy with I can live with that and he lived with it. I would hope so. Let's get down Robinson. I want to find out negotiate with Alan Robinson in Alan. Could you live with this? Because he's the on ly bright spot on this offense, you have a subpar offensive line. You have 20 tight ends. You had 30 million signing bonus. 30 million flying boat while you structured human $30 million signing bonus. Don't you just give him I know you got a structured security in case something happens. How much money do the accounts to figure out right? Tell me 18 You listen, we can play the game this silly game how much we should, But then we've got to go ahead. We've got to put a card trick together. I can't do that. I understand that. But I'm saying I don't care about the science. The signing bonus, All that kind of stuff. Just tell me what he wants per year if he wants 18 million year to me, that's doable. OK, while you and I are now predicting that's doable, and that's what he should get. Yeah. With the Chicago Bears that contract extension? Yes. Could they wait during a year? Do that or you want it done. Now? It depends, Does it? What does Alan Robinson wants us You want? It doesn't make any difference because you know what he wants. But if he was under contract to the Chicago Bears, I understand he's under contract. But you've been through this. You understand how this works. If you don't sign before this, then we've got a disgruntled player. And then you have a disgruntled player, wide receiver with bad quarterback play it out and work. You got a guy making $13 million. What's he describable like He's making a lot of money. 13. 1,000,000 is a lot of money. What's he disgruntled about? But I'm making this much money is DeAndre Hopkins for having fake that? He is absolutely is he signed the contract, didn't he? When he came with Chicago Bears He did this? The deal that he had signed has outperformed it. I'd say he hasn't Yeah, now performed his contract. I think its best wide receiver on the Bears. By far. I also think he's pretty damn town wide receiver, but he hasn't outperformed his contract. No, But if he had better quarterback like Could he have? I'll perform his contract? That's why I look at the individual talent of the player and I said Yes, he is a top 10 wide receiver in the league. That's the type of talent that he has. So I agree with you with that. 100%. But you know, I don't look at his contract and see. Oh, man, I've got to get this done yesterday. If they can find a way to get it done. Let's find a way to get it done. I'm all four down Robinson remaining a bear. And you and I have put him up in the $90 million range for five years. 95. Very happy. 90. Absolutely. He looked at us and say, You know what? You guys pretty good. Thank you. You know, we're like initially Steinberg and ah And who's this guy? Who's the Tom Cruise guy? Who's a Tom Cruise guy? Jerry Maguire? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Lee Steinberg and Jerry Maguire. Yeah. What a combination kid. Do you want to be lied? Cyberdyne? LBJ Maguire. Do you want to have.

"And I printed up today. I've got this Congo bears depth charts even after all of their picks yesterday the four picks they made and you'll look here the bears going out and they get Mike Davis. The unrestricted free agent from Seattle they bring him in. They trade Jordan Howard. They have to recall when they also still have take on my cell. That's your how long he'll be with the team. David Montgomery is picked. And then yesterday they also picked up CARA white in the draft. So they have a lots of running backs lots of death that running back musician. Matt nagy? What it does is number one? They're all different. And and I like that I think that it enables us as coaches the kind of figure out what guys do well, we have good idea right now. But with might be a new and then with David coming in bien new. In curious coming in. They all have a little bit of a different mix. With was exactly what it is. And so we're going to test it out and see and feel it out. But it gives you options and their weapons in my opinion. They're all weapons they can all they can play on every down you feel good about where they're at. And we got we as coaches got to figure out exactly what it is. And then there's only, you know, there's so many touches you gotta balance that and that is the difficult part. But it's a lot easier to do when you have when you have that, you know, with these guys have different strikes. Now, I mentioned numerous times throughout the course of the year that I am not the biggest college football guy, watch NFL from the time. You know, the first game of the day starts all the way until the last game is over don't miss any of the NFL games. But college football, I'm not the guy at of dollar Chris black rod they were here. They were the guys break down the college football for you along with Jay hood all season long doing it on Saturday. Days when they had out to four wins at all those things throughout the course of the year. I am eager to see what the this kid. Montgomery can do. I'm eager to see what Riley Ridley can do. Okay. Riley. Ridley the bears pick in the fourth round the wide receiver out of Georgia, which is interesting because they've gone really heavy with the SEC. And even though I don't watch a lot of college football. I know that if you're drafting players from the SEC, you're doing a good thing, you're doing the smart thing because the SEC is without a doubt the best football in college football. So she's a cough there. So the bears go on out yesterday. And in the fourth round, they take Riley Ridley four star prospect graduated early from high school led the BULLDOGS with forty four catches five hundred seventy yards four touchdowns last season classic possession receiver. And that's a good thing. I mentioned. How I picked up our leads. And so I grabbed that went to our leads and said, okay, give me some good and bad about Riley. Ridley here's what they say. Ridley is the top pass catcher albeit in a run first run second pass third offense pro caliber route runner his ball skills, her near top tier which can somewhat hide is. Lackluster movement tools. He won't burn by anyone in may struggle to consistently create space between heaven the defender underneath. But he is a safe bet to have at least to at least be a reliable possession receiver. Look strong plays strong aggressive and hands catcher that she owes ideal timing his reach for the ball physical runner with intentions after the catch that he's got intentions after the catch. He knows where he's going top end speed. And quickness or merely average will have a hard time getting open consistently especially downfield. He can be caught from behind makes too much time to get off the jam at the line. Scrimmage. That'll be something. The bears will definitely have to be be showing taking care of. But if especially if he's a slack guy. He's a possession receiver a slight guy. Then maybe there's a possibility that he'd be able to get off a little bit. So the depth chart at the wide receiver position think about it two years ago the bears in John FOX's last year. The bears were struggling because they had no receivers. Listen to this list of receivers now. Alan Robinson, Taylor Gabriel. Anthony miller. Giovan whims. Also, cut out of Georgia that they drafted last year in the offseason, they picked up Cordeiro Patterson and Marvin hall, and then they draft Riley. Ridley there are a couple other guys that are on the depth charges Chicago Bears. But look at it from going to know I'd receivers to now there is definitely going to be Kappa Titian at that wide receiver position. And that's a really really good thing for the Chicago Bears having some competition having guys looking to get in having speed the bears are a team that were never a speed team. Now the fast quick team. That's a really good thing. Ryan pace talking about drafting Riley, Ridley giving his opinion. The railroad. Compare both very. Of take their illegal trek through needed. I think we wanted to this with that in mind like the rosters at a point where we don't have to force anything. And we, and we, you know, that's vice at every trapped, but to have the player that caliber there and comfortably Bela take him was really don't bring her because he was so horrible. And that's a great thing. It's a guy that was high on their board. He was there. They didn't have to make any more trades. I was happy with the trade. The only thing I have on the trade is that I was wondering and people, you know, how people on Twitter are, you know, how people on social media are they thought I was being a jerk which ill at times. I can I can do that. That's not a problem. There are definitely times where I can say things on Twitter and in may be misunderstood. But I wanna go back and see if I can find exactly how I said it. Let me see her. Here's what I said on Twitter after the bears made the trade and then a little bit later on in the draft where the bears would have picked it eighty seven the patriots Damian Harris the running back out of Alabama. I said I need the football experts to explain to me why David Montgomery was a better pick for the Chicago Bears, Damian Harris, I'll hang up and wait for my answer. And I got all kinds of responses people saying all you being smart guy, and this and this, and then we're trying to break I just wanted to answer. Because as I mentioned, and I always preface it. I am no college football expert. I seen much of Alabama. I did not see a lot of state. I did see Damian Harris breakthrough line of scrimmage and take off and nobody catch him. I also saw that the running back that shares. Snaps shared snaps in Alabama. When in the first round, Damian Harris was still there in the second. So I was just wondering because how many times as a bears fan? Have you? Seen the bears running back breakthrough scrimmage. He goes down the line and gets caught Jordan Howard. You saw get caught. Well, David Montgomery. I guess it will matter in the long run. It doesn't matter. You win games. Go to the playoffs. The head of the Super Bowl doesn't matter. If you're running back caught. But I kinda thought that maybe they'd get a guy that would take off and run. But we'll see obviously, the only thing that matters. Is that Ryan pace got his guy Ryan pace knew that listen, there's a, you know, a running back win three picks before Buffalo's coming up, and they're gonna take a running back. I wanna get my guy. We gotta make the deal, and they did they made the trade. And let's see how it works out. David Montgomery from all reports. We've not heard anybody say that he's not a hard worker. We've not heard anybody the one thing. I was did. Which surprised the heck I state Senate NCW record for the least amount of fumbles in the season. He's a guy that can take a hit. It doesn't lose the ball. Listen to this. Not only does he take a hit lose the ball. But Montgomery the toughest running back. Take down over the last two seasons forcing a whopping one hundred eighty five miss tackles carries alone since twenty seventeen. So the bears got the guy they wanted. They got David Montgomery in and yesterday quickly going over some of the other picks, we've mentioned Riley Ridley than in the sixth round, the grabbed cornerback Duke Shelley out of Kansas state. Agai Baresi is slack corner, which they need after Bryce Callahan leaves now he'll be fill in because they did pick up a couple of guys to fill in those spots. And hopefully, they work than in the seventh round. They took care white the running back out of Florida Atlantic and another cornerback Stephen Denmark out of Valdosta state in the seventh round. So the bears. Also, did something a little thing is no one's talking about it much. And always in the paper today by the also signed another kicker, San Diego State kicker. John barren he was an undrafted free agents. So another kicker comes into camp for the Chicago Bears. And that's exactly what they need guys to work on those spots guys to try to figure it out after what they did with Cody parkey last year, and Matt Nagy said, yeah, it was time, and they had no choice, but to move on from one Cody parkey, did I'm just gonna be upfront with the whole. Picking things that the elephant in the room. It's not weary talk to our team about it. It's good. We're moving for its there's been so many examples in the last night three to four weeks of whether it's an individual accomplishment in sports, or whether it's a team accomplishment that I can just throw right now that something bad happened last year or in previous years, and it turned into a great deal the following year. So we're this right here is half on half empty. That's where we're having now. So this kicking stuff in the field goals and everything like that. It we're open. So we can use the, hey, the Cody parkey missed. That's okay. It doesn't hurt me. It's fine. It's it's good. So you guys can say. So use it talk about it. It's it's a healthy healthy thing. So we feel good about it. And we're gonna get to cigarette. Boy, it sounded like he was going very fast and trying to measure words, we didn't swear say anything a little out of the ordinary for Matt Nagy. But that was interesting hearing him talk about the kickers. So they did bring a guy in San Diego State kicker. John barren as I mentioned undrafted free agent kicker. He is going to be there fourth kicker and camp they brought other guys in Chris Blewitt, Redford Jones was the first guy that Elliott fry they brought in about a week or so ago. So Barron was the there were two kickers taken in the draft bolt in the fifth round. Matt gay going to Tampa and Austin seabird going to Cleveland. So people were wondering what the bears are going to do with that kicker position. And they bring another guy in so now the lobby introduced to the media probably Monday or Tuesday, you'll hear from all of these guys or at least a lot of them. You'll hear more from. Ryan pace and Matt Nagy over the next couple of days, and then it's quiet for a little while rookie minicamps. There's TA's, and it's a long way before the bear state on the Packers on that Thursday and cannot wait. But the bears in my opinion picked up a wide receiver. They can use away a running back. They're definitely going to use right away. And as people, you know, they don't forget. But there were no first and second round picks this year for the bears. Their first pick was traded to Oakland for Khalil Mack that seemed to work out. Okay. And their second round pick was traded last year to pick up wide receiver Anthony Miller. Well, Anthony Miller gets that shoulder figured out and everything else than he showed what he can do and he can get to the end zone for the bears Khalil Mack. Without a doubt. One of the best moves the bears have made. So when you see the bears draft picks this year just remember that didn't have a I in a second. But Ryan pace did the right thing. The year before made the moves bring goes. Is in he's got Khalil Mack. And the Miller now for quite a long time three one two three three two three seven seven six going to get some baseball talk. But we have some baseball breaking news on the south side. Dow the other day ally has injured himself. It was not pretty for those who must have watched besides pain because.

"Tried to take them away? Yeah. I mean, I could tell he was your data by the question. But as the answer went on I liked his response. More and more as time went on. Look, there's no doubt. We said it before the ball was kicked off Trey Burt not being there was going to directly affect how the eagles tried to slow down to record. I mean that was easy to seize the day is long. Buds. I believe Matt's one of the best young play callers in the league. I think he's one of the best young gain planner in in the league. I still I mean, I I will I would still challenge him. Hey, even when they're trying to take him away. Try to do more to get him the football same way that I wish that they would have gone to Alan Robinson earlier in the game. Now, you brought up a great point in crosstalk. This may not be a coach thing as much as it is a quarterback thing. There were moments four. Tariq to get the ball in the quarterbacks just didn't go through progressions correctly. Didn't plays clean enough game. Certainly in the second half the quarterback found a way to get Alan Robinson involved in that was special that was fantastic. But some of it may be quarterback operation, the the operator you you leave me perfectly to the next bite to because pace and Nagy talked about what they've seen from Mitch Trubisky. This year, there's a lot. Yeah. There's all kind of runs together now. But I think any time especially with that position. You're looking for when they hit adversity how they respond from net adversity, you know. And so I think you'll even his most recent as a playoff game. You know, you go down to the final driver and to see how he responded in that environment. I think is really encouraging you it just is mental toughness to persevere through those things. And I think will. Wilfred future top back. I'll tell you about that playoff game. When he did at the end. That's you go back to your question about growth words. Apparition wise. You can't make those up and he did.
"alan robinson" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"This off season. And I point to the bears. The bears are are spending seventy five million dollars in payroll this year on three players not who are quarterbacks Khalil Mack. Alan Robinson and KENDALL fuller. So to me, you can't do that. If you have a twenty five million dollar quarterback. So people are making. Hey, the Rams with all their spending with golf on that deal eagles all their spending last year with wince on that deal. So this is a real advantage ad for teams with rookie quarterbacks. And I think we're, you know, belaboring the point, but you take away from that -bility with bending sixteen million on her backup quarterback. Yup. I think you're right. And I think also, you know, a lot's been said about, you know, for the play offs, and the fact that the six highest paid quarterbacks or whatever. Yeah. They didn't make the playoffs. But I Don I mean flacco is making a lot of money as a backup that that number is still on the ravens roster. You know? I mean, plenty of these other guys are making money. Andrew luck makes a lot of money. Philip rivers makes a lot of money. So I I think that that point is probably a little bit overblown. I think I think the value of quarterbacks on rookie deals is not. But I think when you look at luck and rivers and Russell Wilson. And these guys drew Brees any of those teams are all tell you. They're more than happy to pay those guys those amounts before lead quarterbacks. I want to ask questions about two quarterbacks that I always get and have gotten from you. So I'm going to turn the table. So this where he may be a little uncomfortable. Because here the two questions, I always get. Is Aaron Rodgers pre Madonna is Aaron Rodgers pushing out McCarthy is Aaron Rodgers going to be too involved in the next coach that's all one question. And the second question is on another quarterback. I'm always asked about in terms of his compensation. We just found out the five incentives. That were added to Tom Brady's contract were not I repeat not earned. So he's back to a fifteen million dollar number this year, which I think puts them like eighty fifth in the NFL. So your comments on each of those questions, which I get all the time. And now, I can turn it over to you. So for Aaron Rodgers, you know, I don't know. Erin, very well. So I don't really know the dynamic there. I do know though that there are enough whispers there enough things from Greg Jennings or other former teammates. And the people that suggests things that make you believe that there's some truth to, you know, whether it's Aaron Rodgers audible ING too much or Aaron Rodgers, you know, not being happy and publicly calling out the, you know, there's belief that after they won that one game twenty to nothing that at Aaron Rodgers wasn't thrilled with the game plan and kind of passively aggressively called out McCarthy for the game plan there. I do think that there's some truth to that. He's a very bright guy. I think he's very driven. And I think he probably knows how to play the game at times and get what he wants and. Yeah. I think it's up to individuals to decide whether or not that's right or wrong or whether or not they liked that or don't like that. But it certainly feels like. You know that Aaron Rodgers I dunno of rub. Some people the wrong way is the right way to describe it. But you know, it's he's not without any blame. I think it's probably the best way to describe talking both in his performance on the fields as to how he goes about his business as for Brady. I've got two thoughts there number one. It is incredibly insulting in my mind that evidently he wanted five million more bucks. You wanted a little boost his contract and rather than them just giving it to him on. He's played such a steep discount for so long. They actually made him put incentives in and then he was able to get it like to me that is so insulting so ridiculous. And of course, you know, patriots fans will say, well, you have to sign it didn't have to do it then. Well, no, you're right..
Winners and losers from the NFL franchise tag deadline
"The best of both worlds 'cause you're not breaking the bank for a guy who's still valuable you get keith him and as a team yeah it's the right way demand dramatic but if you're blunt you wanna you know you got your back called a yet though i called the blood if your ballot you want more guaranteed money for doing what you do yeah i'm with you i get it i totally get it other other guys obviously we told you that cal fuller was given the franc or excuse me the transition tagged by the bears the rams have used the franchise tag on lamarcus joyner their safety not sammy watkins the jaguars also did not use the franchise tag on alan robinson the carolina panthers have agreed to a new deal with kicker graham gonna know they were going to franchise him they said no to grow and former jagr's running back chris ivory has signed a twoyear deal with the bills dolphins owner stephen ross tries to clarify his stance on the national anthem a day after saying that all players on his team must stand for the anthem next year ross clarified his comments saying he would not force players involvement during the starspangled bang banner ross told the new york daily news yesterday that all their players will be standing and then decided that diet misconstrued right iif they weren't misconstrued i think he backed off of that when he got the blow by don't you think probably so steve kerr has spoken out about what he believes the nc aa in the nba should do with regard to one in don's and kind of the insularity topics involved in he says the ncaa should lead undrafted players returned to school i agree with him said players who leave college early for the nba but go on drafted should be allowed by the nc aa to reduce returned to school the reason he can is because once you sign with an agent you're no longer eligible i'm i'm gonna steve kerr if you had to go back to school if you choose right i'm four that too but how may that's a very small group.
