"Lined up most of the time so so we need to realize that he was not and has not been a fulltime back he was a safety his his first year and then that quickly moved and they switched him back to offense because he's great with the ball in his hands but to believe that from four carries aries preseason game and a bunch of padded practices where you're not really taking hits left and right that you can expect that he can just do this twenty to twenty thirty five carries a game because that doesn't seem possible to me yeah. I definitely agree with everything he said there. <hes> i do think it's interesting that they didn't play alfred morris at all either <hes> he was inactive for the game so maybe they're looking at is in a situation where and again his comments say that i'm i'm wrong. What i'm saying isn't true but maybe they're looking at it as between alfred morris and tony pollard with tony pollard carrying the load. Maybe that's what they're they're expecting expecting but definitely if they expect tony pollard to carry the ball twenty five times a game. I wouldn't say that's wise but what i would love to see this to hold out goes into the season is that twenty pollard gets fourteen carries a game in alfred morris skits six to eight and that's what they go without without yeah see i'm. That's what i'm hoping to. I'm hoping there's a three headed monster between alfred morris and it all depends if alfred morris is is or is not washed talking on the podcast for the forty niners called forth in gold previewing this game and they said that alfred alfred morris looked really really bad last year so i'm interested in seeing how he looks if he gets any preseason snaps but i did like the few flashes lashes. I saw from mike weber last night. He was not as effective as tony pollard was but he broke big run on the outside their showed a little bit of vision but that often zip lining then he just wasn't seeing the wholes that tony pollard sol <hes> so i'm interested in seeing if they could make that a a three man swap and get some productivity from on those three so what you're telling me is the effect effectiveness of the running back is highly based on how walks in the situation that you're in and yeah yeah. It's it's not just the talent of the running my exactly all right well. That's all we got time for today where the talking star podcast us the cowboy season has started whether you want to believe the preseason is part of the season or not. We have football back on. We're going to have football back on for a long time. We we can't wait. We can't wait for the season to kick off.

"I'll tell you football is the bond of discuss. It used to be originally. I think it was like horse. Racing then it's boxing then it's baseball and no one can argue right now but equivocally. It's the n._f._l. Let's josh in santa fe. We'll bring in josh on e._s._p._n. Radio what's up. Josh yeah regards dr st the zeke elliott situation got and i was just i was just curious. People keep on mentioning you know the potential not showing up and the cowboys having to restructure structure their offense around somebody else and you know you hear names like you know mike weber or polar but nobody ever really thinks to mention alfred morris. I i understand that but but i mean how exciting is supposed to be about alfred morris. Alfred morris is the definition of an average running about now. Maybe a little better because that offensive line and then offense is pretty good but to go from zeke elliott. Who's an a plus to alfred morris. Who's a a what a see that's a big drop off now. I i i mean i guess it is definite. Highlight reels the other two players but it's not as good. I mean i do not i. I'm so confused josh you you look at at alfred morris and think anything comparatively to ezekiel elliott no but i think you know in times of disparity such now if he he doesn't show back up. I couldn't count out prescott. Hopefully do some things what what he's got. Let's offense will be fine. I am thanks for the call josh i don't. I think it'll be special. I think it'll be it'll be fine. It'll be serviceable. They'll they'll get by. They're not they will not compete for a super bowl if they don't have ezekiel elliott that to me is that that's not even up for debate. That's factual. They will not compete for a super bowl if they don't sign ezekiel elliott jerry's in a position right now where his team is really good and they're in a win now. Don't mess with it. Don't be foolish with this organization. All you have to do is sign. This guy and your team goes back to being them the eagles to win the n._f._c. east and one of the teams elite in the n._f._c. and it's the people and you're the cowboys for god's sakes wchs you have to figure out a way to get this done eighty eight say e._s._p._n.

"Use as directed for fourteen days to treat frequent heartburn not for immediate relief. I'm happy to talk about ezekiel. I think it's a fascinating topic and i'm. I'm shocked that there's so many people that say well. He should just report. If that's you you just gonna report and again. I'm not a cowboys guy. I'm not an elliott guy. I'm not a fan of the team. But how can you not appreciate the worth of this guy. He is barclays right. There and barclay arkley might be the most well rounded running back in all of football but as far as who's the best of the best third into is is there anyone that you would rather have the football in his hands going over that offensive line then ezekiel elliott and the answer is no. You want alfred morris to be that guy. If you take let me ask you this amari cooper taken off the cowboys or ezekiel elliott. What's the bigger loss. It's not even a debate now. The question is dak prescott got or elliott and the only reason could be prescott is because quarterback is so unbelievably important we can get into that debate as well zach dak prescott prescott. Let's be fair. Dak prescott and i don't want to start a whole thing but he's a pedestrian quarterback. He's a he's a average quarterback. Which is nothing wrong with that on a great team around him. Could you imagine if the cowboys had aaron rogers. Could you imagine if the cowboys had like a tom. Brady eighty matt ryan. Oh my god it would be it would be frightening to think so as good as he is as much as a winner as he is as much chaba leader is he is in my mind and i think a lot of people around the n._f._l.

ESPN giants reporter Jordan right on this is the thing with that right I mean maybe young people are they it sounds perfectly fine the bottom line in the NFL doesn't really specially the case if this evening taking something that was the head of the legal stuff right any other bill really doesn't care about you everybody knows that this point so it's hard to imagine it really working out in the favorite or maybe if you take it that your responsible you know the weird thing is near how is a guy who's in his situation right we're talking about a veteran we've been only a long time does the way this works I mean it's been around for a long time you have to take the medication you run it by you you know the leak the train your trainer whatever however you do it it does not do that this is not just express everybody else I've been here it's very surprising in it also joining it begs the question of how many guys are if this is on the up and up how many guys are embarrassed to have natural things are personal things going on that they have to divulge certain information that will make them less than the super heroes that they deem themselves be walking around and if a locker rooms yeah I mean I I bet that those plans were you don't these guys it is a macho environment yeah right if you but this is something where you just have to tell the locker room about it does the medical people on you you're on the team you work or you don't beat medical people at the I don't know me Justin Wallace is going to have to pay for it almost like almost certainly right is like I said before the apple doesn't care for your skin another diet they're gonna be sitting there they don't April which is another has got you know big government but not there you talked about the wide receiver position on Friday alone and didn't happen and not mention this no he's known since April and you know the next day it comes out that they're trying to hide something that always comes out so loose a weird hold all around weird situation and the times that are gonna have to move on like the without gold and the thing about golden Tate right with the big thing was you brought in for help offset the loss of Odell Beckham right he's not going to fill in for that lost completely there would have to do it in multiple ways but he was a big reason yeah that was a big reason he was gonna help fill that void and it's a huge void good luck I was a great player and now they're likely going to be without him for at least the I don't know even if it gets reduced lease a couple games will likely for him with the issue at receiver where you got a couple of guys have gone down like I was going to be suspended and Daniel Jones also good look with the second team how are they going to get an accurate read on this offense of their their patron my actually gonna be running or is it just going to do is be set gives like one ball you know forty times you can try to figure it out this offense had been tilting towards run heavy as much as you can all right all the rules are thanks at the ball all the data the path so we're gonna run have you're talking about close to fifty percent that's like if they run heavy nowadays but the giants have been morphing into that separate the mac address the running back number two overall they traded their superstar wide receiver you know they might you might call the people but they both of their office went there for free in that running him more than me your boss back on Barkley and that office run through him the Catholic that often is gonna look like whatever stick on Barkley Izzo whatever they can work off with him after the game they're not going to sit there they know what you I if at this point in his career he is a complimentary piece right so if anything it's fake one Barbie any need to in the past you have basically going to be robin all that running game a lot of play action I using all these different guys all these different receivers yeah even from happening or could be you know their top downhill weapon in their tight end I you know good selling separate Golden State when he does but I still think one partly out of the backfield using a little bit everybody off that play action that's what they're offering and they're facing the giants are that scenario that could leave them without their top two receivers in Dallas for the

"I think the other player that played well in this game and mostly because of the offense of line because that's what we know makes running backs go, but rain. Most Moster didn't fumble. He's another fast guy. He hit the hole where he needed to. He was able to put some explosion in power behind his runs, and ultimately Alfred Morris, who's the replacement level running back. He's getting plays like one basically at this pointing out one play all game and that one play was Mel flawed by penalty. And that's, I mean, I love the story of offered Morris and his his Mazda has Bentley, it's great. He's a great human, I'm sure, but I'm okay with regime Oester getting more snaps. I mean, he's he's attract star. I'm going to channel my inner Kalama. In here and say that Rehim made the most of that opportunity. Man, that's I'm actually little mad at myself that I didn't see that. I should have seen that coming as soon as you said combats and I should have should have known God. Damn, yeah, pun pun war with cholera is the best. He's great. I love them, but, but yeah, so I think I'm, I'm here for most. You're getting more carries. I think the team needs more explosion. It needs more speed and wherever it can get, it should put it on the field. And most is an explosive guy. He really is. And so I'm glad that he was getting snaps on the law that he was able to produce an. I'm glad the team put some trusted him despite the fact that he put the ball on the ground last week, I think, yeah, it is worth mentioning like he was great. Had some really good runs where he was able to create actually some stuff on his own, make some guys miss, you know, and get some positive yardage that might not have been there just based on how it was blocked up. But I think this is the timing, obviously, especially when I'm on, don't necessarily like to talk about the run game a whole lot. You know, I think that it's definitely more important to discuss what's happening the passing game, but obviously they're playing very well in that phase right now, the offensive line is definitely the main reason for that, like Rita most in this game have definitely been great and made their plays, but this offensive line is doing just phenomenal in that phase. At some point in the future, maybe in like, I don't know twelve months or so we're going to have the lead in a game and it'll be kind of useful next season. Yeah, it'll be. It'll be useful to be able to run all that some rain, twenty nineteen skills, dislike, hang onto. We tuck that one in the back pocket and save it up. Abby began to get, but ultimately in this game, the team just fell apart. They couldn't put it all together. And this is what happens when you go up against league quarterbacks. I, you get the bathroom coming back down to earth. He was the textbook of regression to the mean one whole game. He played out of his mind. One, half of football had a nearly grade and then comes back down to earth in the second half and is great. It was just thirty eight point. Two, it's probably put him is by his arm, punt on that zero blitz from from Green Bay. I disagree with that. I have with that. I don't have the issue with the decision. The decision was not the problem. I thought the decision was actually quite smart. You've got a fast wide receiver. You've got zero blitz view. Hit that game's over. And I think you're going to be able to do that, especially with pressure coming off the edge. You only have time for one thing, right? The issue was where the ball was located. It was located the one place. It couldn't be located, which was inside and a little short. You gotta throw that deep into the outside. If he's going to be one on one with where the player was defending, I don't even think the ball. Okay. Shen to be honest, was that big of a deal. I think that was one of those plays that was just a much better play by the defender than what it was four. So I think in that that place, I mean leading up to it right..

So yeah, I bid on him as well, but nothing and then Frank gore, he is everything. And if something else that you know of is infinite and all he has gore and then it was defense isn't stuff. So Christian Kirk, I picked him up. There you go. All right. What would you do Mike or nj sin with freaking dollar man? Yeah, feels he'll real bad man. Real bad. Yeah, you had my you must be pretty disappointed. No idea. I liked it. Listeners get the very tangible emotional insight here. Did you guys catch the giant Matthew berry rain yesterday? Oh, I did. I mean this I thought that was that was eeking to my season. That was unbelievable. Unbelievable. He needed one point. One point remorse from Alfred Morris, and he's in a league where they give point for first downs, so he actually got the point, but then it was worth holding call before the holding because he hadn't gained ten yards. But he got close down so he would have won. And then he said it was the worst loss in thirty years. So that's rough. Fun football. All right. What what would you do right now with TY Hilton because I don't know if people know what to do with TY l. is a must buy, absolutely must own must keep mustache must by one hundred percent because you can find it. It's hard to hold onto a Leonard for net sometimes because there's just not a, there's not a replacement. Sometimes you have to trade them if you're losing games, but you can grab it your main curse in get by for a week off of waivers or something like that. When t y, Hilton comes back with what's happening with the colts defense and offense. T y. Hilton is just going to be dominant. He's gonna take everything away from Ron. Okay. The parents are the same player. They physically, yeah, skill is the past three weeks. Andrew luck is averaging thirty three completions three hundred seventy six passing yards in nearly four touchdowns TY hill and they're losing. If you can get t y Hilton right now, I would absolutely do it. Yeah. All right. What about how do you feel about rob gronkowski Mike? You've been his biggest advocate right now? He's the tight end six, which is fine, but it's not why you spent up on grunk. You spend up for the number one Mondo points. Now, this offense is very interesting because there are some that believe it's the best in the league. Now with omen back Josh Gordon, if you listen to Bella check on the press conference yesterday with media, very optimistic about Josh Gordon integration, it wasn't a passing comment. It was look every week. It's getting a little bit better with what we feel comfortable giving him doing with him. So there are a lot of mouths to feed HOGAN, three or four receptions a week. James white, Josh Gordon juuling Ataman. Now gronk is still wrong, but what are you? What are your thoughts here? What are some metrics people can lean on? I look the way I feel about gronk right now is I returned home. And I found rob gronkowski and my house, but he was playing hockey in he is smashed my favorite vase. Without question. I'm very disappointed in you rob gronkowski, but you're still giant hole king may on who plays the tight end position better than anybody in the NFL. So it's fine. I'll buy new vase. He, the only worry I have is he hasn't looked like, I don't know. He hasn't looking Mojo bag. I believe on. I know you had a couple of long long last week, but like if you watch him run in, you watch Travis.

Alfred Morris is on the waiver wire. Again, this Alfred Moore's and Derek Lewis. We keep you dropped and picked up week at seven point. We're going to be the one that looks like a fantasy. You know, I'll tell you secret. I had a fucking waiver requests in for Alfred Morris. I'll say, at least you're gonna tell anybody. I had one, I didn't get him, but you know what? Our quest him next week when he's sitting on the fucking waiver wire, nobody's gonna keep him. He's not. We. We just keep trading him around. That's fine. Michael Crabtree nine tyreek hill getting ten hurts you because that's a guy you need to put up big numbers that he win against that Jacksonville, defense, Vance, McDonnell you, you knew this was not people jumped on this and you knew this wasn't gonna play. You told me this wasn't gonna play, but he had that we got nineteen points and and everybody looked at their way. I can't believe this guy sitting out there for free and fantasy leagues across the country tripped over themselves. Trying trying to pick up bands McDonald and sent Cincinnati's put up six. And one. Vance McDonald, he's a good player, but he's at home, run player the only way he'll get you anything with that one big home run. They definitely look more towards the the Jesse James. I, I've said it before and I'll say it. Again, Vance McDonald berry homerun, dependent, berry homerun dependent. If he doesn't hit that home run? No, no point to your way. Powell. I I- Raelians I. I mean, he, here's the, he's he's had. He had, you know, I'm looking at now. He's got week to he had sixteen points and every other week besides it's seven. That's fine. If you needed a somebody to come in on a BI week and fill in for you and you're like, at least I know I'll get seven out of this guy because sometimes it's all I ask somebody because there are a lot of players out there you put in and you don't know of, you're going to get two or one or tannehill, but but you put him below pal, you know, you're getting at least seven, that's fine. But you can't. You can't expect a win of you're getting seven every week every week and that your flex player. Yeah, that that's definitely a buy week. You know, it would have been great if I had him. And when McCaffrey was out this week, like definitely play him and you know position, not somebody who I'm going to try to hope wins every week. There's a lot of wide receivers out there from week to week that you could have picked up at some point and they'd make a better flex player than than below pal up. And if you're in this league and your flex isn't a wide receiver you're doing it wrong, Craig, marshawn, Lynch. Has flexing and you know what you looked like. You know talking about this week because he only got five out of that guy. So yes, you should definitely have a wide receiver in your flex position. We just points guys, typically your your wide receivers are going to do better if you've got, here's the thing that if you've got three running backs that are so good that you've got that you can put a running a running back in your flex position and feel good about it. Good on you because a lot of people right now don't have to fucking running backs that they should be playing. Yeah, yeah, exactly. Have you have you got three? I you're my vote to go to the champion. I'm if you have three good running backs. I want to know why you didn't draft a quarterback because you were still drafting running backs when everybody else moved on. You were picking that running back section, dry Mason. Crosby only getting three, the patriots defense only seven individually. Some of these numbers not horrible, but collectively, you have to have those guys that are getting twenty points to make up these other guys. You can afford to have a guy only get you nine point. That's fine. You can have a wide receiver get your nine points, but somebody on that team has to be getting you twenty five and he doesn't have anybody doing that..

"Thursday, limited Friday, and he's officially questionable, and Alfred Morris didn't practice it all on on. I mean, he was fine on Wednesday and then was limited Thursday and Friday and is now questionable. So those two guys are going to be expected to carry a big chunk of the workload this week, and they're both banged up coming into the game. So that'll be something to watch right off the bat. And then obviously we went over it that Richard Sherman is officially out and so that's a big blow to their. I mean, he had a really good pass break up in the end zone last week. Against a I mean, two weeks ago against kill. So he was able to still keep tyreek hill, which is pretty impressive to me. And then market Goodwin wound up being full Thursday and Friday, but he has a quad injury. And as we know those can flare up basically at any time if they're not fully healed. So that'll be something to watch too. If he winds up having to stretch it out for play, eat might tweak that again. So yeah, both teams a little bit banged up already early in the season, and there's a bowl, key injuries on both sides watch. I didn't realize that Braida in offer Morris were actually banged up as they are annot. Gus Bradley was talking about how defensive game plan is essentially going to be the same. Let's say Braida in Moore's officer just fine and continue to play. They are the second leading rushing team in the NFL, and I don't think that's going to change. Because of who is under center. Jimmy garoppolo's probably more experienced quarterback in probably sling a little bit more with him. But I think at the end of the day they were going to run it and run. It's more come into this match of. So I wouldn't be surprised if things really just stayed the same. Obviously, the chargers weak point. And I guess you know, they've gotten better. They've shown flashes. Lele with the run defense, but they still average about allowing one hundred twenty ish yards per game, which isn't, you know, astronomical. It's not crazy, but that's still something in win. You have, you know, Matt Braida who leads the NFL in rushing actually tied with Zeke Elliott with two hundred seventy four yards. But rate has done it in sixteen less carries and win some perspective. We think Austin colors vary officiant player in general, whether he's cutting the ball, running the ball in Ecuador, believe averages just as smidge over eight yards per carry. Well, that's second only to map rate. So again, we talk about how dangerous equa is to other teams in how much fans, and we would all like them to use a more Braida is just as much of an athlete just as efficient as Ecuador. I think Brady coming out was I think he has or it's one of not sure, but he's one of the highest rated athletes with spark writing. So just overall strength, speed, agility, everything. Combined into one package..

"One week two to the preseason. Forget it. You gotta do it the week before because there's fifty three cuts and there's injuries and stuff like this happens and then you've got jerick McKinnon thinking, oh, I've got a starting running back on my roster and then he injured himself and you got a dead spot on your Oster which if you wait until the weekend, you wouldn't draft him but did. And if you did talk to your fantasy football Commissioner because you're drafting in the wrong time slot due at the weekend before the season starts. So McKinnon's out San Francisco's relied on their duo wearning backs. The UDF aim at Breda and Alfred Morris, Alfred Morris is getting the bulk of the carries. So far he's more their first down. Short yardage goal line back just basically need him to plot and rumble for a couple of positive gains. But the real weapon is Matt Brita. Now Mabry to hyper extended his knee and the game last week, but he returned the second half. So he might be good to go. But we'll see how that turns out after the game. He was favoring his leg said he has calf soreness. So if he doesn't go for the forty Niners that'll be a huge loss because Breda is explosive, Matt breed it in practice on Wednesday, so Brita can't go against the chargers ought to be a huge loss for the forty Niners. She looking at a duo of Alfred Morris and where he Moster so mad Brita being out would be a big deal. He carved up the lines run in week two for one hundred thirty. Eight got ninety on the ground against the chiefs Britos led the team in rushing all three games. He's a tough guy to bring down to Brita actually leads the league in yards after first contact with eight point, five, six. You know who second Hostetler with eight point one, five. So tackling the run game is got to get better than. It did last week and Brita is a threat out of the backfield to. He has three receptions last two games, so you gotta keep an eye on them as receiving weapons. Well, this is another thing how Shannon gonna be working on this weekend on Sunday. Quick. Easy passes dump off some screens. Get the ball out of CJ's hands quickly use it as an extension of the run game. So stopping the run has got to be priority number one for the chargers, and they're going to try to get as many yards when they can because they know they can't depend on CJ methods arm to get them down the field. So you're gonna see, a lot of runs dump off screens. Quick passes. You're gonna see a lot of that on Sunday, the charged out to be ready for it, but they have to stop the run. First and foremost stopping the run four CJ bathroom to throw just like the charter with Josh Allen came. The pass rush is important too, obviously, but even win. CJ Beth has time you're asking him to make throws that's a good proposition for the chargers. You want him to try to make throws so. Stop. The run is the biggest focal point this week for the chargers on defense. So as far as the receiving weapons, the big one is actually a tight end shorts Kitto with Garoppolo. This offense really killed you up to seem the majority that was with their Tynan Kittle could always been the team's leading pass catcher two out of three games this year. He's a very good run blocker to did mentioned in the running backs, but Kyle us check the fullback very talented blocker as well also receiving weapon..

Everybody's ripping Alfred Morris for the three asking Solomon Thomas. What the hell he was thinking talking to peer Garcia saying man catch the ball in the end zone sports stores policy. Just one of those were framed man, I'm afraid defense is saying we played well enough to win the only guy Switzerland Robbie gold as the only guy. Everybody said, you're cool. Otherwise, it's a it's a mob scene in. There's a fistfight somebody got pissed the whip. That's crazy. Can you? If a quarterback ever did that can you imagine the internet would break like an NFL? We went our like and how did the Steelers like clapback bell like if that ever happened where I was in the locker room, and it's wild. Listen, it's mayhem an area. Somebody call the priests. Police officer in an ambulance we need all three quickly. Now, we need a live chicken. Anyway. An old blood tight. We need your help. Now as is interrupted. Red zone issues where do you think? It's not a quick fix. What do you think the the obvious fixes? And what what do you think the the main problem is well, see we're going to need more in the next couple of weeks. How Bill to see this red zone connected to the struggles last year or is it just because of the Vikings in week one. Because the bummer to me is Alfred Morris when he dearly fumbled on the play before. I don't want to run the same guy with eleven bodies right there. So what I'd like to see in the red zone is Garoppolo more on the perimeter where it is. He's rolling if they never come to him. He can run if they do come to him. He's got options in the end zone. The other thing on the drag route who are you missing marquees Goodwin. Your miss it. Because if he crosses the face of the db he's fast enough that you can throw it out there. And it's going to be a touchdown. So I think that's there is a red zone guy. Now that I think will become more of a factor. That's Dante Pettis because he's got size. You can throw it to the corner to him. But like anything, I think confidence was repeated success. They gotta get into the end zone. A couple of times start to feel it. Kittle? Kittle make somebody good catches. And he leaves you wanting at times I want him to be the red zone guy because watching New England. And even gronkowski said it Brady just froze it wherever the hell he wants and gronkowski goes up and gets it and granted the Niners don't have that physical mismatch. But there's a confidence just like the Cowboys used ABA Jason Witten and not just someone in the red zone. Like if I give this guy chance it's going to be a score. What do you think about a come on, man? What do you think about of Cam Newton's outfit? Yeah. Man. I mean, I don't. Wow. That just stopped us right on radio. I mean. I don't really know what to call it. It looks like he's wearing a giant checkered flag that the use to can I say huggy bear Starsky and hutch now man huggy bear was way cooler than that. That's just that. That's a dude who is because he's so good, and so rich and so famous I can dress. Anyway, I want to I can literally wear pajamas out of the house. Russell westbrook. Even the skill is like, wow. That is that's a bold fashion statement. Got to help you quarterback out. Obviously if you touch it. Gotta catch it. But we talked about Jimmy Garoppolo. When you misses MRs misses high the past kiddle missed him, high Kittle tongue-in-cheek said, you know, if I were twenty pounds lighter. I could have gotten it because it was well over my head. Jimmy Garoppolo his one flaw in terms of quarterbacking. We saw it in the preseason beside yesterday. Is there any MRs guys you miss his? Hi, how did you fix that? How does he just had sidelined? I is it just a matter of you know, I I gotta throw the ball lower while inviting courting disaster because lower the ball is more opportunity for other guys to get their hands on it. Next thing, you know, the better the protection is the more. He will step into throws. Absolutely. And get the arcuri needs to be the back foot or sailed throw is the is feel a lot of pressure. I don't want Nestle step into something to get broked. And that's actually and as the game went on in the Niners were losing Gaza that offensive line and Minnesota's defensive front, which is already pretty good. They could see at they had the advantage. They kept pushing that line and kept pushing the pressure garoppolos face. No quarterback wants that. They would rather a guy. Come almost free off the edge that have three dudes at common interface while they're trying to step up and make a threat doubt. It's time now for the city, national, Bank, business and technology report. Here's Jason Middleton. Recent research from Pugh center shows that users are dropping their activity on Facebook.

"About FAU's own Alfred Morris fumbling twice for the forty Niners. That's right out bird Morris, but see, you're not a fancy guy or a skill garwood out for Moore's, not be someone who would even be valuable enough to tip to pick up and fantasy? No, Alfred Morris is he's got fantasy value. Yeah, it was supposed to be the running back, but Alpher Moore's is clearly the guy. He's now the guy because jerk McKinnon who's Niner got injured and camp. So the game we're playing is I discovered yesterday that Malcolm Butler was tightened. But the reason like the skill guys are gonna, Brandon Marshall being a Seahawk isn't going to be surprising you unless you don't play fantasy. You know where the skill guys go. You're going to know where Brandon marshal goats, correct? Yeah, it's the defensive guys that are going to pry into kickers. Probably. Yeah. Jankowski caught me off guard yesterday. Seven eight, six, four, five, six, four, eight, three, seven, not a flattering uniform for him. The raiders uniform slimming. Right. Oh, who did I see this weekend? College football, one of the best punters in the country is big, fat guy. Oh man. Who was I watching was watching in college football and again, by the way, south Florida and central Florida are vying to be the best teams in the state. I am so sad these days that Florida FSU in Miami are afterthought. Right? How about Florida state? I use it, but I'm saying that used to be running the sport, those three teams. Whenever they played, you had to pay attention on Saturdays. He was in the rare escape then turned into a blowout from south Florida against Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech had that game. How does Georgia Tech not sake keep a lead, a potentially to score lead considering their style not built to come back from a to score game by the way that Amish offense, the Amish offensive, Paul Johnson. Who is this big punter you're talking about interesting. Penn State. Penn State had a big pun or for a while. And I'm sorry, I'm drawing a blank. E was a hefty kid, and he was, you know, he's a boomer, Jonathan, you're on ESPN radio, Jonathan. Gino Smith backing up filling rivers every time. One of their receivers dropped the ball, south. See, that's a surprise because most people did not take Gino Smith at fantasy. I was surprised by that chargers though, did Trump so many foot, Travis Benjamin, good Lord. They betrayed port Philip rivers who again, because he's been stuck in this Dettori for fifteen years of down eight to ten with no timeouts has to go ninety yards. We were all rooting for that yesterday weren't we? Yes. Most predictable thing in the world every weekend Paul, you're on ESPN radio. Wayne gabbert replacing mariota on the titans..

"Not to mention the the sixty years, a bad mode. Shower before going on to the next game. I don't like you like that device device look, good day. You know, surprise because they're loaded with talent, but they still do. I thought Garoppolo weirdly played well, considering he was under seige and didn't really have anybody to throw it. I thought he handled himself for for the fact that they were kind of lingering in that game for most of the game, I thought was pretty impressive. The vikes good, and I'm not. Environment and one of the best defences top three team. Yeah. I, I guess we get Jimmy j. more credit than, uh, than I should've there. I don't think he's bad. I think I think that was a really tough spot, and I don't know if a lot of QB's would have done better with the skill guys that he had, which were basically, you know, Alfred Morris and George kettle, and it just was not a murderer's row. Yeah, right, right. Random, win receivers that you kind of like, oh, I think I know that guy is so, yeah, Packers. Those are two nice one, Sal. I have to say, I think there's a third one in there, but, but but we got, but the, yeah, a miracle win aside. He can't be excited about this game, Aaron Rodgers. He just camping. I know it's home and everything, but that's another tough defense. And he's going to get you're gonna get banged around a lot here that they did a nice job in the NBC game today, pointing out how much faster he was getting the ball out in the second half compared to the first time. So I assume they're going to do that again. But this time the Vikings are going to be ready for him to do that. And that'll be chief Steelers, doesn't elite game not after sitting through a Steelers game though. But they'll be home and it's it's a fun bells on the team next week. I think he sits out a couple more. I really. Yeah, I think this is bad now he he doesn't really have to come back until week, nine or ten, but what's interesting. He can't really accomplish anything. There's no way for them to give him a new contract. They could trade them. And that's really it. So unless he's trying to demand a trade, I don't really know what he's trying to prove at this point other than what a lot of people if there is, which is he just doesn't wanna put sixteen games of mileage on his body. When what are you trying to prove with that tweet with the with the Monaco emoji because I stared at that for a long time. Somebody I can't remember who did this, but it was funny somebody responded that that was the face he was making when he realized he lost eight hundred fifty thousand dollars. Joel Solomon shut up to Joel Solomon. Yes, I think I think that was his, but maybe that's what it was. I don't know. Yeah, but what? But he really but really what was he thinking it was like, is this like, hey, I could see better than you can or I could see this coming or kind of thing. I just love to know what that was about. Just seems like it's not a great idea to continue your feud with the five, three hundred pound guys who black for you? Yeah, the guys that save your your head and nays. Yeah, probably not. Also gonna come back in six weeks instead of making ten times as much as I'm gonna make thirty times as much as them. So you've gotta take that into account to one of the five guys is a pouncey and they're like the Morris brothers. Basketball is never good idea to be in the opposite side of the town sees, hey, the poop Fechter goes three deep this week does only one really magnificent poop. Fact, again, the other two are the games because one of the teams are only one chargers at buffalo. I don't know what buffalo does it quarterback. I don't think this is the game to bring Josh Allen, but I don't know if we should ever see Nathan Peterman again. What would you do? What would your choice speed between the those two options? I everything equal. I at this point, but the, you know, because if team's gonna go third, three and thirteen or four and twelve give the rookie to not right..

"Alfred Morris now Morris didn't even come to the forty Niners until the middle of training camp around August thirteenth after injuries to Matt Brita an jerick McKinnon necessitated, adding a little depth at the running back position. Now Morris goes all the way back to Washington DC with forty Niners. Head coach Kyle Shanahan back when Shanahan was the OC under his dad he was taken in the sixth round of the two thousand twelve NFL draft out of Florida Atlantic. And then that twenty twelve season he amassed sixteen hundred thirteen yards averaged four point eight yards a carry and scored thirteen touchdowns. He's a two time pro bowler. He's got over five thousand career rushing yards. And last year in Dallas is Zeke Elliott's backup average four point eight yards. A carry he's still on the right side of thirty. And now a jerick McKinnon being out for the year. He's expected to share that forty Niners backfield with MAB Rita and he's got a critical role to play. And if the forty. Manner is going to have any success today in Minnesota in a tough environment on the road a guy like Alfred Morris is going to need to shoulder some of that low to take the weight off Jimmy Garoppolo Morris was thought so highly by his fellow players. He was number sixty four back at twenty thirteen on the NFL's top one hundred players.

"To do it because they're regard, you know, no matter what leaguer in this probably players on waivers that you look at you what I wouldn't mind. Adding them to my team is kind of a ticket tickets shot in the dark at this player and hope something happens. There are a lot of players that you'd love to kind of take a stab, take a chance on, you know, add on your bench and see if they, they blow up if they don't, you can always drop them. So I think the biggest mistake dealmaking trays as they don't get creative enough, they try and do these these generic trae proposals. And if you if you offer a two hundred three for one and you're getting the best player obviously and you're giving up three, you know, slightly above average players, average players, maybe. It might look appealing to the person you're training with because they say, well, I'm getting three players. And really what that's doing is you're getting the best player in your clearing up to roster spots that you can then go and add to pieces. So Alfred Morris, the perfect player for that. You can just add to a trade in. Here's an ideal I go onto, it's kind of like flipping a house. You pick up alpha Morris. Then we flip them for an upgrade. One good idea could be you kinda combo him with say a u. someone definitely lower and like a is air Crowell, Chris Thompson agent Peterson and flip him football to those people without for Moore's to to to those groups who say a Tevin Coleman, pain barber. I mean, what are your thoughts there? Because I think much I think rather have painting Barbara than than Alfred Morris and as well. Oh, absolutely. I, I'd rather have pain barber. I'd probably paying Barbara, Alfred Morris Crowell in that order. So pain, Barbara's in other person than I play that I, I'd love to trade for, but I do feel a couple of leagues where it seems like we are in the auction. We did this weekend together. He went for like seventeen dollars, so he's not going as far under the radar as he was a week ago because with the with the non existent around Jones, I think people are starting to come around the fact. Okay. Paying Barbara is, is gonna get a lot of carries, and but if you know, I think he's definitely a prime candidate to to target because he's going to be the guy. And you know, you're not going to probably have much luck getting the Melvin Gordon's to cream Huntsville world. So you know, I always like trading for these people that are easier to acquire in doing two for one to get them. Yeah, it's really hard to trade for studs and for good reason, you know when you throw him into our trade trade machine tool that you know, it's very. Evidence, it's really hard to get the studs so don't go, don't don't be that guy that picks up the phone. I go, you, I wanna do trade. Who do you I want cream hunt? Well, yeah. So you and everyone else in the league does, and so do I. So let's let's move onto tight end, though. Seth, there's only really we have our top number one kind of tear not that they're all together, but you have like the main three gronk Kelsey urge if you don't get them within the say the first four rounds, you had that middle of the road, which I think is a good week in week out starter people. We didn't love all their eighty pieces year, and we talked a lot about that in the draft special series. But you know, if you did end up with Greg, Jimmy, Graham, you're not worried about your weekend. We got starter. He will. These, they're going to be on the field. We don't know what their tweet production is. How about Trey Burton? You know, now we get the news at Adam. Shaheen is going to be put on. I r. We haven't heard a lot from Allen Robinson. Haven't heard a lot from Anthony Miller. The rookie wide receiver. Still a little unsure what we can expect from Chicago Bears offense. It seemed like there a little inconsistent in preseason. But what about if you didn't end up with one of those we can. We out starters going after Traber Burton, who's kind of maybe at the end of that class of potential weekend week out stars that you can rely on to at least be in the lineup. Yeah. I mean a tight end at you..
