"This is fantasy football today from CBS. Sports got email us at fantasy football. Cbs I dot COM. It's time to dominate. Your Fantasy League of Cheney. Welcome to Thursday. Show fantasy football today. The first two episodes later on today will be your xfl special hosted by Dave Richard. Welcome everybody. I'm Adam as our with deb Richard which amy is with Gretch. Of course we have more Tom. Brady News can't wait for him to actually sign. Got Big Week coming up next week. Honk is GONNA actually That's true hope. Hopefully you just heard from Jamie and Dave. What's up then? Are we doing good man? Good ready to talk about the NFC east and the NFC west. Did you know that Russell Wilson has never given us to top twenty four wide receivers in the same season last year was the closest with UK metcalf being thirtieth in Phnom PR THIRTY SECOND NPR So there's that there's you know the giants at the third fewest rush attempts in the NFL and they seem to want to be a ground and pound team. So we'll talk about those team needs in fact let's start with the NFC east who is the player currently NFC east roster that has the most to gain or lose based on free agency in the draft? I think I think there's a case to be made. That Zakar says quite a bit to lose. We already know that Dallas scattered. It's going to take a chunk of work away from him at tight end. We don't know how often the eagles are gonNA use two tight end sets but they did a lot of that last year but Philadelphia has to a lot I know I think wide receiver is going to be a huge priority for them. And that's GONNA mean more targets being spread out. Running backs will get their fair share as well and Zakar could end up being a disappointment. I think he's got quite a bit to lose Carson Wentz conversely has let yes. I think it's already has lost that They have to bring Alshon Jeffery back. They have to bring Sean Jackson back because of their contracts are really only. GonNa lose ager. I think it's already going to be pretty clear. I mean yes. They're going to add another receiver now but we know they're going to add another receiver. Think it's already pretty clear that hurts is going to see quite a bit of drop off from. Twenty nineteen might pick would actually mile sanders. The Eagles have a lot of running backs that are free agents Jordan Howard. Corey Clement Roles may retire but is also a free agent so right now it looks like it's just sandwich and Boston Scott so the caliber running back. That they bring in is going to be really significant. For how have you sanders next year? Or maybe don't bring in anybody right. Yeah Oh it's it's a mile. Sander show were excited. We're all excited about it. Me especially he gave me a fist-bump at the Super Bowl. We vows school Decker. It's by the way. Eight Games Thou Sean. Jeffrey seven point two five targets per game. Seven Games without Alshon Jeffery. That includes games in which Jeffrey left early with an injury. Eleven targets per game given that stat but worth giving again. I also says sweep fulltime since the Super Bowl that miles sanders is giving you a fist-bump. You're you're GONNA keep reminding. Us of the guys are texting now. Two Mile San no but I think I should probably make that my twitter picture. You know But yeah sure yeah. I think I'm GONNA do that. That player with the most to gain or lose in the NFC west. Let me start with Ben Grechko for Ben. Across the the entire. Nfc West I mean I like Deebo Samuel here as as the answer this I I mean. I really like what he did. In his rookie year Emmanuel Sanders is a free agent. Whether they bring him back or what they do it. Receivers going to have a pretty big impact as we know kills there and is going to be. They're probably going to get a big extension this off season And is going to be there. They're number one. But if they bring in a big second option I think you know people will still have you know. His gadget plays in his is rush attempts in the ways that they got him the ball last season but it will definitely limit what we can project for him in this offense David Jamie. What's your pick for the player with the most to gain or lose in the NFC west as we get into the team needs and what these teams will be doing and free agency in the draft. I mean I think it's the cardinals backfield. You know whether it's David Johnson winning by no Kenyan drake coming back or Kenyan. Drake losing by David Johnson. Staying if he resigned with the cardinals. Because you'd like to see just one guy there but I think if it's three guys there with Jay sediments as well could be a little bit of a problem. I still think drake would be the best but No having all guys there could be a little bit of an issue. Could the case be made that all four backfield's in the NFC west could have gain lose significant gain lose the they could all have something to gain kind of asked my first aid speaking? Sorry about that The one that I was focused on with Seattle where Chris Carson. Twenty six years old when season starts coming back from the HIP injury. Yeah it looks great because Rashaad Penny has a tornado Seattle and the rest of the guys that have either just average guys but I th. I think they could draft somebody and that somebody could be a good player. I the Andrea Swift would be an amazing that they're and could just not Chris Carson into a part time role this year off the roster. Next how do you draft a running back in the for? I mean that could have to be a first round pick or even the second for the second time in three years. That just feels like a waste to me. They need unless they bring back marshawn Lynch and just say they hope that you know one of those guys is healthy by the time. Cheney Cam comes around to the point that they feel comfortable with their backfield because homers obviously going to have some sort of a role whether he's the fourth guy the third guy or or you know one of the top two could be a special tonight. you know that they. They got hammered. You know it's not like the this was by design you know they. They thought they had their back to the locked up for probably a couple of years. But is Chris Carson. I mean the the reports good about Chris Carson. Yeah but but still. This is now two of the last four years for maybe three years. When did he hurt his break? His leg season. You know so. There's a reason they drafted penny. Carson exploded drafted penny which was great. But you know it's still a situation where this offense as much as we'd like it to change as much as Russell Wilson's now starting to complain about a little bit. I don't think they're going to change dramatically so you know they need depths at that spot so I if I think they're gonNA add a running back at some point you know it's it's not gonna be somebody prominent. Oh that's going to be a first or second round pick but I do think you're gonNA see a day three pick that they'll say this is going to add depth for whatever we need to know whether it's break last in case of emergency like we saw last year or somebody is going to factor in because You Know How many years has carson have as as a feedback for them. That's the question. I'm sure they're probably ask themselves. Well they mentioned we're doing regulators later by the way. No I love not all right. Well we're doing the regulators. Did I mentioned the mile sent? Yeah I mentioned that but regulators. That's coming to the end of the show. Let's do some news and notes I want to promote our facebook groups. Still going strong off season topics good discussions within the FACEBOOK GROUP. I believe the URL is facebook dot com slash groups slash fantasy football today. But you can just go to facebook and search for fantasy football today. It's never too late or too early to leave us. A Nice Apple podcast review. We'd appreciate that and let's Hope. March madness happens if it does. We'll have the bracket challenge for you if you win the bracket challenge you are in the podcast league. Congress tournaments were started because so Yeah you could right. I mean you could still play obviously the tournament without the conference tournaments but we'll see but for now march madness March madness still going on and We have the bracket challenge. Put the Lincoln the description of the episode. And I'll tweet it. You can email me if you want in obviously have time to make up your mind there but any ties at the top of the standings will have to be broken by me. News notes Tampa Bay reportedly going all in on Tom Brady. Who's got Tom Brady Fatigue? I mean he's going to be back with the Patriots. You still think so. Yeah yes I'm not sure I would love it if it went to Tampa Bay. I wasn't I think numbers would be good there. I think he'd be alright. What Jamie I would love it I it'd be okay for him. I don't I wouldn't love it for the receivers I'd rather they have James. Yeah Yeah I want someone who can push down the field more I I. I got to be clear I wanNA see Brady leave like I think that would be a really fun storyline but I just think all of this is going to be or not and we're GONNA see Brady Back Patriots who the Patriots playing this year. What's their their offense. The bills in the Other divisions their play They have big schedule. Lamentation yet. You know I don't have it yet. Because the schedule's not out yet but the West AFC west and NFC west. Okay so go to lots of the chargers or and Ten Houston Houston okay. Look he'll go to Baltimore. Quarterback Green Bay released Jimmy Graham. He was actually third on team targets with only sixty two thousand sixteen and seventeen. He was a top five tight end. I believe with these Seattle seahawks. Is there any place on earth that Jimmy Graham could go that would make you excited about him and fantasy no Alvin Kamara said that his leg was at seventy five percent last season. And that you know. That's that's twenty five percent less than it should be. I think so my picture at seventy five percent ask well. What do you make of that? He was a top five running back. Kamara in seventeen and eighteen and then in two thousand nine hundred fifteenth and non PR and ninth and PR. They same thing I've been saying it's GONNA be Great. Pick in first round because people are going to be upset about what he did last year. I I completely agree. This is the new like Injury that I think we really need to monitor think like bigger picture is a high ankle sprain for anybody I mean. It's not new. But high ankle sprain from running backs and how it impacts both impacts their ability in the fact that he's coming out and saying this. That's something that we were talking about during the season that he didn't look right coming back from a high ankle sprain. Same exact thing we'LL SAQUON. Barkley didn't look right for a period of time and then late in the season when he got healthier Barclay closed. Really strong I mean I. It's just like you're GONNA get a free discount on any player that play through this injury especially at running back where you need that agility and you need that you know that bursts that the high ankle sprains SAPS. I think the biggest thing though. Is that those guys came back earlier than they probably needed to. What is what was it. That remember Barkley was six to eight weeks initially and he came back after three. But what was it that he said at the Super Bowl when he thinks talked to him right and he said he had a different injury after he came back or that he reaggravated the old. I think he came back. He said he was yeah. Yeah Barkley said he reactivate I just but we did on on HBO and he said he re aggravated the ankle injury. Right okay. Miami Releasing Reshad though. Actually can I go back to camera for a second? Because you say you're GONNA be a great pick in the first round. The question is where I think. I've seen him as early as four v USA. I got him six not GonNa fight with anybody over fifth. Okay just one. He may he may jump up. If McCaffrey does hold up. America himself might hold up is McAfee really talking about hold out. There's some Rumblings Carolina I was going to be a steal at six by the way and like I don't think necessarily it's argue like a bad thing to have him rank back there but I think that's a really good value right right. Miami Releasing Safety Reshad Jones. They now have the while they continue to have the most salary cap space in the NFL. And it's on a draft picks G. Texans are going to let Carlos Hyde explore the free agent market does not look like he will be back. Your take on On that he can go with Jimmy. Graham that's big news about me. We'll see who ends up with. Texans I'll say it again. Houston can address their running back group in free agency. They don't have to spend draft capital on that position. They don't have a first round. Pick Nolan Gordon makes lesson. Yes that would be. That would be fantastic. The Texans will bring back cornerback. Jonathan Joseph and Rob Gronkowski is close to signing a deal with the wwe. According to foxsports. Dave how do you feel about that? Wwe Man haven't watched. I watched the royal rumble this year. And that's really been about it. Would you watch Gronkowski if he went to aws? I don't even know what that is yet. The people who do you understand. I'm talking about they. They know they're with it. Okay let's move onto the team needs and start with the NFC east. We have three of the top ten teams in Pasa temps in two thousand nineteen in the NFC East which would ordinarily mean a very exciting division and then we had the Redskins who ran the ball more moster they were up there in rush attempts and they were bad obviously lowest scoring team in the NFL. And that's where we're going to start. We're going to start with the Washington redskins is I have to remember who aside Jamie you have. The redskins team needs for them and who could be most impacted on the Redskins by offseason moves. They need everything that was easy team to do. Well do they do. They need a quarterback. Maybe I don't. I don't Know What the new coaching staff wants to do. I know a Daniel Snyder wanted to do last year. But you know they have the opportunity. If they WANNA take quarterbacks take one or two At at two they tight end. Obviously the you know re no longer there in Vernon Davis retired. They need some receiver help to help their Goran. I do like Steve Simms. I think he's A. He's a good third receiver if that's his role in the slot but I think they need another receiver to help. Compliment corn Running backs about the only thing that they should be. Okay at if Geis's healthy and then Dave Fifth Round Pick and Adrian Peterson Worth but otherwise you know they have holes. I mean it's. It's clearly a team that has a lot to fill so rice. Love Shutout Bryce up. Who's got who's got the best on this team. You know who's in a position to have their value really change. I mean if they were to get a look. There's two guys that are GonNa get drafted across the board In McLaren and guys after that it's a crap. Shoot you know Peterson. Make some sense with a late round. Pick Thompson. Npr with a late round. Pick but if they add significant receiving death that could impact Mark Thompson would have to resign to count here. He's written. He is a free agent. And I just a hunch that Jay Gruden Mike and McCall to join him in Jacksonville Zoo's ownership and there was that report that I wasn't a report and Ron Rivera said he was gonNA use all three of those running backs law Orson it. Yeah what do you think of that now? It sucks fantasy but it makes perfect sense for Washington guys whose knees keep getting hurt. Bryce love is coming off of a devastating injury and Adrian. Peterson is thirty three years old. So okay I was trying to help them out. They're younger because it doesn't matter when you're well past thirty so mixing them up in using it's probably going to be what's for the best there but it's going to suffer a penalty by the way Dwayne Haskins. He threw seven interceptions. He threw three of them in his first game and that was off the bench. They throw another one and then in his seven starts actually only threw three interceptions. But did it throw a lot? Yeah I don't think he ever through thirty attempts I want. I definitely think Dwayne Haskins could still be good he somebody. We don't know a lot about and I think he played well enough with a really young receiving core especially late in the year Jamie mention Sims but also you know Kevin Harmon and maclaurin. They're all rookies. Those basically his top three receivers late in the year. I think he played pretty well. We could we could see some promising things form. But I don't know why teams don't try to draft. There are have two young quarterback. I actually wanted Arizona. To hold onto Josh Rosen last year like it's so important. The quarterback position right. Why not have to and let them compete it out? I just I don't get it. I I still think. Washington should draft to us and then see what they have to. Quarterbacks was wrong with that. I think you're passing up on what could be a generational pass rusher in that regard and that's just the beginning. There's going to be a million questions about who's going to be the start or is this guy right. Thank you deal with though if you feel comfortable about the one guy who's going to eventually take that job and then you hopefully do. What smart teams do if you have that type of capitals you trade it but you know if you're not taking that job to you know I I mean I. I would assume to take five years to determine the franchise around taking this for for one or two year turn around and then hopefully be competitive and then see what happens from there so I would imagine you know He. You take that job with the hope that Dwayne Haskins is the guy and I agree with Ben. He played really well. The final three games of the season by comparison to what he was doing earlier in the season he threw fifty touchdowns in Ohio state. That doesn't happen by accident. You know it's a big school too big program. He was great in in his His one year there he just got off to a terrible start in the NFL. And so you know. We'll see how he does with a full off-season with a new regime and hopefully Some better weapons. Who is Tim? Tebow's high touchdown passes it passes. Yeah total in two thousand seven. I don't remember through thirty two. Why bring that up obviously same similar offer? I mean yes. The Urban Meyer. Sort of offense Totally different players. Yeah Yeah yes Okay Dallas eight second place in the NFC east six in scoring and Dak Prescott had a huge year. He was second in six point. Nine four point four. Th in six point per passing touchdown leagues and Just he was terrific Dave. What are the cowboys? Need this off season well. Do they have a quarterback probably for at least one more year because they can franchise Dak Prescott Costume over just over? Thirty three million dollars believe that would make him the highest paid player for twenty twenty. They give them the exclusive franchise tag which it sounds like. They're going to do because they can't give them a long term deal because he turned down what would have been the richest contract in. Nfl history. You go back so he'll probably be the quarterback there you know that the running back with Ezekiel Elliot and Tony Pollard. Wide Receiver Mark. Cooper is a free agent and so if if if DAX is franchise and there's a new. Cba in place. Amari Cooper will be a free agent in shop himself everywhere if there's no new. Cba They could theoretically give Mark Group of the Transition Tag. Make it harder for him to leave Dallas while giving back Prescott the franchise tag. Randall Cobb is also a free agent. Which means that if they both leave. Michael GALP IS ENTERING. Its third season. He'd be their most experienced receiver on hand behind him. It's Devon Smith and Cedrick Wilson. They've got forty five career catches combine. Wilson's kind of interesting as a dynasty stash. Six two at fifteen hundred yards at Boise state. Maybe Kelly Moore's a fan of his because of that big questions at wide receiver for Dallas especially in slop Jason. Witten is a free agent. He could be on his way out. Here's another dynasty sleeper Blake. Darwin could be their primary tight end checked his numbers past two seasons. Seventy five point three percent catch rate. Eleven point six yards per catch eight point nine yards target and the only played thirty eight point seven percent of the snaps last year. So he's got some room to step up if Dak is the quarterback and the offense still relies on the tight end and especially if they only at young players at wide receiver Jaro in Connecticut. Being maybe one of those late round tight end guys that you pick stash a couple of weeks. See what happens So if dad comes back and Cooper does not is it more of a positive for Michael Gallup or Blake Darwin or more of a negative for Dak Prescott Bend. Where would the impact be felt? Mostly would it be with with Gallup or would be with Jack but I think it's both It will be a negative for but it would be a great opportunity for Gallup. I really like and I think he can be illegitimate number one. But regardless I mean now DAX not working with two really good downfield weapons which was what made him so So productive last year as a lot more vertical lot. More air yards in the passing game in both galloping. Amari showed that that ability down the field and had some some big game so yeah it would hurt back to not have another weapon in his offense but I think it's huge for Galvin. If whitten's gone I do. I agree with David. Really Liked Darwin. As a he'll end up being like a sleeper tight end like in the in the mold of guys like we were talking about Dan Waller. This time I mean not this time but last fall before the season I think he will be considered something like that Jamie. How far would you drop Dak Prescott? He's six right after he was fifth. Davies fourth for Heath. How far would you drop him in a If he does not have marker bicycles ten but it depends if they add. Because you see a lot of mocks where CD Lamour jury duty you know could be in the mix so if that's the replacement that's pretty good. It's not Amari Cooper. Obviously but it doesn't necessarily crush them. I think if they you know once we get past the draft Cooper leaves and they don't add somebody of significance you know they're just sort of back stabbing with. Let's say rebel. Cobb has got a history of Mike. Mccarthy obviously Than THAN THAT HURTS. We saw what he was pre. Amari Cooper which was good at times But you have to assume that his numbers don't necessarily have the same feeling van. Let's go to the eagles. They went nine and seven. They won the NFC east. They were twelve and scoring they. This is their points per game. Though last three season Super Bowl Year they scored twenty eight point six points then twenty two point nine last year two thousand eighteen and then twenty four point one in two thousand nineteen. So give me. The team needs for the eagles. Also which player could be most affected although I think we recovered this eagles at the top of the show. So gimme the. The team needs offensively. I mean they. They don't have a ton of glaring ones. I mean definitely receiver right. But I think that's been overstated a little bit out Sean. Jeffrey almost certainly will be back. It would cost them a ton of money to cut him. I guess Probably trade him but I don't know that that will happen to Sean Jackson. They is another guy that would cost them money to cut so the cap savings would be negative so I don't think those guys are going to be gone unless they are dealt you still have urges in Goddard who yes. They'RE GONNA run two tight end sets and they're gonNA use both of these guys in the passing game so actually think they're passing game is a little bit more full up then. I think most assume But yeah they're going to add to it. They are going to add a third receiver Nelson as a free agent. Expect him to leave but at yeah. Just don't see that as a major issue they gotta figure out what they're GONNA do with. Jason Peterson the offensive line. And they have more needs on on a defensive side at cornerback as big one that has been talked about a lot this off season but running back is the one that that you know. I'm really looking at. Is it going to be Mile Sanders in Boston? Scott and just a minor additions or are they going to bring in someone significant like Jordan Howard last year? Who could take a lot of early down work because we saw sanders did at the end of last year when he was like nearly every damn back it was awesome but we also know that the eagles like to use a committee so if they bring in someone somewhat significant than you know I I think Miles Sanders. You could rank anywhere from the back end of the top ten to. Maybe he ends up being more like rb. Fifteen to rb. Twenty if they bring in someone significant so He's the one that's a big deal for me. They'll tell the truth about that in the next month and a half between free agency and the draft. They don't spend significant capital on that decision than you know exactly how they feel about miles sanders in. You should feel confident expecting a big workload from him. How good is Sean Jaffrey? I've always liked alshon Jeffery. I think he's just productive. Just finds a way all score a touchdown they'll have a big who have a lot of yours. Well it's not always the prettiest but like he's he's reliable and you look at his numbers forty three catches four hundred ninety yards four touchdowns in ten games. It's not really that great but he barely played in week two. He got hurt in week fourteen. He had a combined targets in those two games a and he got hurt and both of them. So four hundred. Ninety four and eight games all of a sudden. That's nine hundred. Eighty yards eight touchdowns and That's not that bad but I I feel like he's capable of being certainly a thousand receiver and he can probably lead the receivers and touchdowns. I don't know if you'd have more than Earth's but where do you guys on Sean Jeffrey Right Now I like to argue with heath about him but I guess I'll get your takes today. I think he's number three receiver with the chance to start for you when he's healthy. That's the problem is. He's you know always battling these injuries. You know what was the shoulder injury? Years ago you had the the knee and the ankle problems. It just seems. He's at this point in his career where he's always. GonNa be hurt so you know it's almost like you probably think of them. Maybe should start to think of him like you think a wolf older guys that that you just don't know when you're going to have him when you haven't me it'd be great. is just the lack of staying on. The field is is problematic. It and again. What are they gonNA do to enhance their receiving core? You know somebody like Ravi Anderson with comes in to replace Galore but would essentially replace one of those two guys as the number one receiver. Tim Jackson Review those two guys. So I think you know Jeffrey. He's gotta be healthy. Start Camp and then be you know just kind of approach it the right way. I'M GONNA BE BE OUT ON HIM. And they most people are unless you get them at the right price. Well for me. That'd be like around eleven. Round twelve. Adrian Peterson over out. Yes yeah as of now now. He makes a miraculous recovery from his injury in Philadelphia doesn't add much at wide receiver. I'll change my tune but thirty years old broken foot. Trade rumors won't be the number one receiver even when he's healthy for eight or nine games that he plays. I'm I'M GONNA spend my picks on other players okay. Last team is the New York giants and Yeah I did find it interesting that they had the third fewest rush attempts in the NFL. But then you look at the time of possession they were fourth worse than the NFL in time of possession should they wanted to run the ball more but this team when you look at their needs. Jamie while at. You've obviously get the news. But but obviously defenses a bigger need an offense but I'll still. Yeah certainly a tackle but I do think that this could be a team. If they can make some improvements on defense it would shape their philosophy a little bit more But where do you see the giants right now? Who could be impacted? The most I mean. It's it's kind of similar to what we talked about with the Vikings the other day this skill positions are for the most part set. You know there's really not a number one receiver but there's three tooth essentially you know. I think Slayton's got a chance to step above the other two Based on what we saw last year. But you know it's hard for him to the command a significant amount of targets. When you're sharing the field with Sterling Shepard Golden Tate and Evan Ingraham. It'd be nice to you know I'll tell you what their biggest need is giving getting. Ebony Been Ingram on the field for sixteen games now if that happens then I think he could be a elite tied on But running back is is is certainly solid Finding maybe a capable backup better than Wayne. Gaughman would be nice but you know not not. Somebody's GonNa Start Fantasy Daniel Jones is interesting for his sophomore season because he runs a little bit. We saw what the upside. Qb Some those games last year like that week. Three game against Tampa Bay were start. You know so. There's a lot like about this. Offense is just that I don't think outside of Barclay and Ingram. There's a clear cut starting fantasy wide receiver there. There's guys that will be sort of this. We use the one you that you might be. The most excited to draft could be slate because of the upside. Yes Shepherd is nice and safe. Npr and take could be a good value and Daniel Jones will be a an interesting late round. Pick for people to consider having as the second quarterback you know in a one. Qb League Day. No Jones twenty four touchdown passes as a rookie. That's pretty good and bigger Mayfield. Has the record. He threw twenty seven touchdown. Passes Fourteen Games for Mayfield? Thirteen starts in two thousand eighteen but Jones. Miss a couple of games with injury. Didn't start the first two games. So twenty four thousand has but he had four huge games and every other starchy had he didn't score twenty fantasy point so was not reliable. Just beat up on terrible teams. Basically ben you know you. You love doing projections when you. This is a strange team. Be With Ingram with slate with tate which shepherd the fact that they were Gosh. I don't know if there were any games that they were all healthy for all four of those guys. I don't think there are any games. Were all for them. Plus Barkley were healthy. So like are they going to be one of the most difficult teams to projects in two thousand twenty one or twenty twenty that year. It'll be tough. I mean we had a similar situation last year though and I pretty confident I if I looked back. I'm pretty sure what I did. Was I just wound up projecting you know Ingram Shepherd and tate pretty close on. Tate had the suspension but pretty close on a per game basis targets. Because you know that's that's on the high side for a tight end you know I. I think England will compete to lead the team if he's healthy all year But typically receives gay targeted more just naturally than Shepherded Tate were on the high side but the now obviously slightness. Well I think yes. Late has upside. But he's more the downfield weapon in which shepherd and tate in Ingram being kind of more underneath. I would project SLAYTON for fewer targets. A higher you know yards per target yards per section more explosive plays But would probably think in terms of just raw targets he would be further down fourth on the on the Totem Pole. And maybe fifth if you consider saquon Barkley targets but yeah it'll it'll be a challenging thing to Dole out those targets that'll be one of those situations where it's like. You're not comfortable with really anyone's projection. They'll dealing with that list break injury to which thanks to the NFC west we got these Seattle seahawks were eleven and five second place in the NFC west ninth in scoring third in Russia. Temps and twenty third in pass attempts per game. They've talked about a Wilson saying he wants to go no had a little bit more. I think he certainly wants to throw the glass. Yeah that'd be wonderful that Russ Cook Dave This is your your squad here. Seattle TEAM NEEDS IN. Who has the most to gain or lose while this is going to be really easy where he talked about? Kris Carson having quite a bit to lose and honestly running back the only position that I think is a significant need for Seattle at this point quarterback there said wide receiver. You got lock at Macapa. Their top two guys. They could probably use a third receiver but they might take a page out of Philadelphia's playbook now that they've got Greg Olson will d'isly can come back Hauser's there they could roll with a lot of two tight end sets and even if they don't do that they can add a six offensive lineman. They've done that. A bunch out a full back that would keep to receivers on the field more often than they would use three or five receiver sets. So I'm not sure if a if a receiver is a huge need for for billy for Seattle this year so they might be pretty set there Except at running back I expect them to add one player there and offensive line. The new starting tackle feed as a free agent. Probably GonNa let him. Go AND PRYING DEPTH THERE. Were you know where they really have? A need is on the defensive line. Pass the free agent on says a free agent. I think John Reads a free agent. So those are three of their starters on the D. Line. They're going to need to address. That did you mention cloudy. Yeah Oh that was the first time you said yes I they. Their pass rushes is and that's another team. I like with the giants. Where Wilson threw the ball. I think he threw the ball over more this year. And if they if they improve their defense. What kind of offense are they going to run? You know. Are they going to do what they typically do? And just kinda pound ball. But he obviously doesn't want that and like just. Let's just let the guy throw easily the best quarterback in football basically and it could be so pretty if that pause Russia's doesn't get better in the defenses and great and now they're trailing in games and the run game is a question mark. We could Russ having a big big year. There's there there is some excitement and I I. I would hope that. That's this happens for Seattle that they let Russell Wilson do his thing. Maybe they're they don't have a choice. Maybe they have to let them throw more. And yes I know Mahomes is better than Wilson. But that might be it. Yeah a debate in terms of a better quarterback. Just pure quarterback. Who Do you think the second best quarterback in football is Wilson just from a passing standpoint? Yeah just like the. Who'd give me the best? Quarterbacks in football Philip rivers. I'd say Mahomes I thought they breathe. Dave. I think I think I would take Wilson over breeze. I I think I think Wilson would be number. Two listen is just so incredibly accurate down the field which is just a great fit for. Tk Metcalf and like yeah. I love it. He's now talking about passing more. He needs to pass more I agree with David's. There's any potential that he comes anywhere near a career. High Impasse Pass attempts. He's GonNa have a huge season. Just he's always been a very efficient passer. He's super super accurate and now has more weapons than he's had an a lot of years. Tyler Lockett Decay Metcalf Greg Olsen and like dates had still has some some other tight ends in d'isly Halston that are that are decent weapons especially when they're your your fourth and fifth receiving options. Men are really like what Seattle has in the passing game. Now if they're willing to actually let Wilson Open it up the way. He creates a time in how accurate he is down the field. He could have a huge. Is there any question though? He's the fourth best quarterback right now. I've got him six six. I've got him six to me. It's about the upside with Murray Shawn Watson. Having upside. Lamar Jackson is second for me. Still Think Lamar Jackson Watson and Wilson those atop will listen if Dak Loses Amari cooper thousands lateral place in. That's an easy one to put Russell ahead of and then keiler Murray if Arizona just doesn't do anything interesting for their offense than sure. Russ could go ahead of them there. To what round for Russell? Wilson quarterbacks are always so weak specific. So I think you're talking. He's GONNA GO EAST. He ranked but he's going to be most likely the fourth guy. So that would mean in a regular Joe Drafts. Probably around three. But you don't like that. I wouldn't do it but I understand why people would. Would you do around five? Yeah you know the thing about Wilson is when you take a guy that earlier quarterback that early round five spray early. You have to ask yourself. Does he have the potential to be the number one quarterback and fancy and this might sound strange because he was the number one quarterback and fantasy in two thousand seventeen. I believe but that was one of the lowest fantasy point. Totals for a number one. Qb that we've seen a very long time. It was a fluky number one finish. I think Tom Brady was number. Two that year I think the answer unless they change their offense philosophy. I think the answer is no. I don't think that's a huge unless let's carrying a law a lot of weight in that sense. 'cause he's talking about throwing more. Liz and yes. They don't change it. He should be drafted. Top-five because you're an opulent have anywhere near that upside. But he's pretty safe with his efficiency. Okay this Estado wanted to give just real quick if you just come by and we'll Disney and Jacob hollister which is not really that unfair as hollister wasn't doing anything while Disney was healthy You combine those two. They were a top eight tight. End Eight nine. Pr Seven PR saw. Greg Olsen eilly listener go to arden. Let's go to our next team. It is Ben's team. It is San Francisco Thirteen and three first place in the NFC west Super Bowl. Runner-up second in scoring second in rushing yards per game fourth fewest pass attempts per game but second in yards per attempt behind Tennessee so very efficient when they threw the ball and What do you think they're team needs? Are The forty niners. And who has the most to gain or lose lift quite a few team needs? You know there's even some talk about you know Brady to San Francisco and Garoppolo being gone so like this. The range of potential things that could happen with the forty niners this off season. Pretty wide I I would suspect. The GAROPPOLO be their quarterback next year Obviously this team you know was very good last year. And it's not a team that we need to Polka tunnel holes in but they do have a philosophy where they rotate a lot of players. That a lot of different positions particularly on offense skill positions And they're they have meat so Emmanuel Sanders is a free agent. And they're definitely need be at wide. Receiver deebo Samuel Lame. The euro was you know just kittle Sanders and Samuel and deebo. Samuel is now pretty much the only wide receiver that we can lock in there And then at running back where he most. It looks great jerk McKenna definitely a cut candidate through some dead money there but they almost certainly will just move on from him And then you have Mab Rita as a restricted free agent. They already brought back. Jeff Wilson and you also have Kevin Coleman who has no dead money and could free up some some Some salary cap so Liam centrally see them just decimate talking back him. Outta here out freer. He moster please but they will still do a committee. I mean even if they did that and I don't suspect all of those guys go but even if they did that they'll still do. I mean like last year I think there was four different facts that at one point or another the most staps in that backfield in a game like it. It's GonNa be a thing where you're not gonNA get starter in a League back for Sixteen Games. That's just never going to be the way that this offense is. GonNa be bill. I'll go back to what Cauchon said that the combine that he used to think that having for running backs was luxury and then he realized that is in the sesame after what happened to their team. Yeah but don't you think based on what happened is him. He just like let one guide do all the work. And just save the other guys you know like this conserved that are also going to care but then which is the guy the one who was the best and most of the one he kept giving starts doing Coleman now. I'm just kidding I mean I think most are has earned it or the one was the best in two thousand eighteen and Brita. I mean he was there studying in two thousand eighteen and he was a popular sleeper. Coming into twenty nine hundred. Fumbles changes year-over-year it. Yeah it's frustrating so Garoppolo extremely efficient terms of just yards per temporary doesn't throw the ball that much and sometimes that goes hand in hand. The more you throw the harder it is to be that efficient. But we even saw it in two thousand eighteen when they're quarterbacks or garbage the mullins and the yards per tempt still really good. So what do you think the chances are? They opened things up a little bit. They start throwing more and we get unlocked potential from Garoppolo. I think it's significant that they opened things up. More that they're going to because Kyle Shanahan. I think is tired of this. We can't throw he can't throw. He's a cocky guy. To the extent of Hill tryin prove people wrong about Garoppolo and we saw it until seventeen when he came to the forty niners. He was good. We saw it in the first three games before he got hurt in week. Three in two thousand eighteen. He was good and so I think adding another piece of the offense is is a big part of it. You know whether it's keeping Emmanuel Sanders was doesn't seem likely or just bringing in somebody else you know getting Jalen Hurd back. We'll be a a nice piece. No he got hurt. Early last season But they need to add another receiver. You know but I think you'll see potentially better numbers for Deebo. Samuel is receiver and. I think you'll see that they'll open up the offense a little bit more to to to what extent that remains to be seen but I do think the couch going to sort of let Jimmy Garoppolo Kind of contrary take I like it. I think it's definitely possible. But they were just so good running the ball last year with you know the scheme wise in so many different running backs at the US and kill being such a good additional blocker at the tight end position probably the best blocking time in the League That is kind of their their bread and butter. But I don't think Jamie's like rocker bringing this. This potential up. I mean I kind of like all his rocker but I'm concerned that the defense is going to be too good and that San Francisco just had a formula. That was good enough to get to the Super Bowl by Ryan. The football quite a bit and leaning on that defense to make plays so how much more it the defense is making plays in the Ryan. The ball. They're going to hand it to grop loans. Okay just do your thing to have some fun out there they. They had success with Garoppolo when they needed throw the football. They didn't need to throw the football that much yet. It's kind of the problem is like they will go a whole game and run forty times. It did it multiple times I remember. They did earlier against Cincinnati. They did it again a couple times later. Where the just if they're run the ball. Well they'll just keep running forever and it sucks because I wanNA see Deebo Samuel play great. I loved his talent. And I WANNA see Jalen Hurd breakout and George continue to be amazing and play like Rob Gronkowski. But I just don't know if that's the DNA that team well let's talk about the DNA of the Los Angeles Rams nine seven third place in the NFC west. They were eleventh and scoring. Yeah They. They struggled a nine seven. I think kind of respectable considering just beside on play a play out it unfold. It was a disappointing year for the rams for So Dave Know Jamie. Sorry Jamie at the rams were their team needs. Who has the most the gain or lose? I mean they're they're fantasy. Assets are kind of locked in you know would Unless they move on. Brandin cooks which I don't think is going to happen. I know there's talk about me to trade him but who's going to trade for a guy coming off you know multiple concussions down production with that contract so you know what you're getting from if healthy Cooper Coppin and Robert Woods the question becomes is Todd Gurley right and so you know Sean McVeigh. He had his talking points prepared because I heard him say three different times. He said at the podium set it on Saturday. He said it on another set where he was talking to that people were talking about the the management of Todd. Gurley said it was no different than what we've done in previous years and we were trying to make sure that he was fresh for Game Day and all these things Clearly he was not the same guy whether it's the knee whether it's age whether it was blocking you know if there is a need it's offensive line but otherwise they're not changing their personnel I think the only big thing would be from a fantasy starting standpoint is tyler higby the guy especially the guy. We saw the end of the season. Or is it Gerald Everett in Tyler? Be Sort of cannibalizing. Each Other. A little bit wherever it was starting to build momentum early season than he'd be just sort of took that mantle and ran with it was much better than ever. But can all these assets sort of sustain the same value in the passing game with was with cop and with whichever tight end is doing remember? They don't pick 'til fifty second and they only have six picks fifty second eighty four one. Four one twenty six one nine eight nine two to thirty four. They made their bed last year or two years ago. I guess you know but you know they went for it. They had the super bowl run and now they're sort of managing with big contracts and you know veteran players that Hopefully you'll get the job done. And they gave up. They gave a stuff they gave up. I remember what it was for. Walk Ins but then they did it with cooks and then they did it with Jalen Ramsey. They're in a little bit of trouble here. I think and they got signed Jalen Ramsey right to make that worthwhile so I think that you can look at it and say it was mismanaged but did yet them to the Super Bowl. Also you know they went for it. I guess credit for that but I mean I think it's. It's a bit of a scary time. I mean I wonder just your overall thoughts on the rams going forward. Are they the look this time? A year ago they were a young up and coming team with his head coach. That was a genius. All you gotTa do is no him and you were going to get a job so but things look so different right now. Dave what what do you think about the rams? I think they're going to be in a bunch of games where they're going to have to throw which is sound. It sounds crazy. No it's a broader broader picture. Like do you believe in the rams offensively. Do you believe in mcvay. Do you believe in this offense. Yeah passing game for sure. Run Game philosophically. Yes if they especially if they add town on the offensive line they have to reinvent themselves a little bit because they got exposed in the super bowl carried over the last year. You know all the creative stuff that McVeigh was doing sort of was got a little bit but they did that Not Not so much. I don't know they started. Involving tight ends a lot more in their offense toward the end but it didn't help their offensive production. I mean they were still a little bit stagnant by comparison. There're lots stagnant by comparison right because that's true but at least they were doing some different. I think that's why you saw the whole overhaul of their coaching staff. You know part of it. Was everybody leave or the guys who laughed and I mean you make the case. Zack Taylor being the biggest name who laughs but no the defense got stale wasn't as good offense got bill mcvay wants a new voices in there. It's his boys skies that he's worked with in the past. And so you know. That's a big part of it but This is a team that I think in an inlet McVeigh. I'M GONNA give him credit. He's smart enough. I think to go back to the drawing board a little bit. Which is why he made the changes to sort of change things up a little bit but And your point that yeah they. They had to do a little bit. Different part of it was personnel. Because cooks not being there you know so allowed them to open up things. A little bit with the tight ends but If everybody's healthy do all these guys fit for their fantasy production? That's the question for us. And we're GONNA have to find another one more team Arizona five ten and one last place in the NFC West Sixteenth in scoring only twenty second and scrimmage plays but also just second worst time of possession in the NFL. So they need the ball little bit more. Although you gotTA figure they're GONNA WANNA GO FAST. And maybe they could be a good offensive team with still a low time of possession. But they've got the cardinals here. Finish US off. Team needs and player that could be impacted. The most they gotta get better in the red zone and a way to do that would be adding an Alpha at wide receiver. I mean no disrespect to Christian Kirk Larry Fitzgerald but I don't think they're necessarily number one guys fitzgerald at this point. His career They've got three second-year receivers Andy as well as speed hiking. Butler size keyshawn Johnson solid all around type of receiver. But I don't know of any of those guys can be a number one and I see lamb linked to the cardinals because Calamari played with him at Oklahoma. It would actually make sense. I just don't know if I like them doing that without moving down I but if they got him. I think that would make their passing offense a little bit more intriguing. Who cares what they have a tight end? They don't really use the tight end. We talked about David. Johnson already And Kenyan Drake Drake's a free agent. They Franchiser Transition tag admits at least ten million dollars or twenty twenty. It seems like a lot for drake but David Johnson books for fourteen point one million bucks if they cut them they gotta they gotta spend even more than that. It cost him an extra two million dollars against the CAP so if they trade him the cap it is only million. They'd probably have to pay a little bit more than that for a salary and they wouldn't get Bupkus warm and trade and he's twenty eight years old when the season starts they'll be twenty nine when the season ends. I hope that they can find a new home for David Johnson and that David Johnson gives us something and fantasy in twenty twenty. I hope Kenyan Drake home is Arizona. Iop's their lead back and hope they're offense of lying. It's a little bit better. They finished the year fairly strong part of it was because they were just healthier than a lot of other offenses offensive lines along league. But their centers free agent. They'll need to replace him and DJ Humphries. He'll play tackle. I just wonder if they'll move to right. Tackle if they spend a big draft pick on a left tackle Ben. Which offense do you have more faith in rams of the cardinals now? That's a good question. I often to lines at a huge concern for both and I think probably the rams because they've done it more recently But I still feel pretty confident about the cardinals but for both of them. If they can address the offensive line they could have another really disappointing season as well. I mean it's it's too often says with upside Downside you know. We saw both not be quite as good as expectations last year. I would say But Yeah Arizona's really interesting. They have a huge issue at running back. You know when you get a quarterback on a rookie deal. Typically that frees up space to add a lot of talent around him. But they have just the they're gonNA have lead the league in in cap running back by a ton if they do anything to bring back because he can't really get rid of. Johnson. It's got a it's got a you know. Make things a little bit more challenging them but yeah I agree with you. Have a need to add offensive line. Help would be really interesting to see the matter after they added three last year. But he's probably right that they could use legitimate number one. Maybe they're hoping he'd Butler can come back after being on. Irs last year. And be that guy. That Guy Fitzgerald back and Kirk and the three young guys they cutting one of the young guys already right there. That's five guys there. And how many of them are actually playing significant roles on specials? Yeah they might think Butler can be that Big Bat. A guy on the outside. I mean I don't think is Belen keyshawn. Johnson did enough this year to really be super optimistic for next year. But I still like Isabella. Long-term I think both those guys have potential to help out Isabella more so than Johnson News. Oh the dion. Lewis News Dan Lewis got okay. Great fantasy react in store for them to draft a running back. Who's GONNA be like Derrick Henry? And then they use them both his work off. Henry is going to be like Derrick. Henry are going to be like Dan. Lewis the physical powerful running back when I was just going to keep the navy. We'll get ten more catches from Derrick. Henry that's what they should do. Ten fifty more fifty. Yes Let me ask you as this go around the room. Dave Jamie then. Would you rather have jared Goff and Cooper Cup or cuyler Murray and Christian Kirk Fantasy? Yes I'd rather have the rams Same and really the cardinals guys. But you're a huge Christian Kirkman. I'm a Kirk Fan I think Murray has way more upside than golf with his running ability. And I like Cooper But I'm not like I think Robert Woods is going to be one of the best values in drafts this year. I'm not convinced that Kubrick up their best fantasy receiver going forward all right then. Let's regulate send us your commissioner questions or League. Disputes Fantasy football at. Cbs Dot Com. This is like I don't even have a name on this one. I'll get the name or David could make up a name. Tito Tito says everything comes out during the off season can have a question about thank you pat and I place. This was a mid season issue. First Place Player needs a tight end and Hunter Henry just became available. Remember this middle of the season. It must been after Henry Skin. Baffled injury first place team is up against the last place team. Last placed team also needs a end and the last place team is a first time player. Who doesn't know what he's doing. Here's the question. The fourth place team sees this. He notices the last place team. Is I in waiver wire order and he tells the last place team to take. Hunter Henry knowing it will keep him away from the first place team and may give a loss to the first place team. Is this collusion. Does it? Matter that the first place team won anyway doesn't matter that the last guy had no idea what he was doing does that matter. Does that matter for the intent of the fourth place person. What do you think collusion is one team helping another team without getting something in return for right? We're GRA hurting another team. Sure like if you're at a position on the waiver wire where you can't get a guy that you want and then you go to a different team in your league and tell them to get that player so that blocks your more direct competition from getting it. There's almost no more perfect definition of collusion. That is but then what about when people were like. Hey set your lineup. Your your tight ends on. A by ansel different. I think is it Ben. Is it very like specific? Thing about fantasy. I mean the League that I'd Commission for bend the Commissioner for two decades now we have specific rules about setting lineups. And if it's not set how that gets addressed But like that's because setting different. There's no rules like that for waivers. Okay so we all agree collusion. It's collusion if you want to get around this you go to the team. That's I on the wayward and say. Hey there's a guy like on the waiver wire I'd love to trade for your waiver wire spot if it's if it's a if it's a team that doesn't know what they're doing they'll say well who's the player and then if he realized that you're not going to make a trade or maybe you think you can. You can mention the player. That player will get it first of all you trade for Waiver Wire Party you could trade you could say get upgraded warm right. Yeah Oh so but oh that now. That is interesting. You want hundred Henry. You'd approach team you say. Hey I'll trade you the player you like from my bench and I'll tell you who to port restart in the yet in that situation. Sure that's fine. That's fine. I mean rage. Now I understand what they're getting at data centrally telling the guy what to do without telling him what to do if you can't get the trade to happen but I mean if you want to get a player that's on waivers. Somebody has that priority spot. Yeah absolutely tried and make a train or can you just say hey you take you take hunter Henry on waivers. I'll give you this guy. He's Diane Dave talking about like a gray area for sure of just kind of made that or how big at hoping that even picks it up but I'm not. I'm not suggesting that he'd do it to keep another team in the league from getting the player assistant lead at the time that this happened. That conversation I'm assume didn't happen since coming out. Now maybe well thank you everybody. This has been successfully regulated got an XFL show coming up. You'll hear it on Friday. Regulate let regulators but regulator singular we. Yeah regulator for J. Dave Banham Adam.

Hoffman my co host is the definitive commissioner of fantasy football Elliott and Farrell. This is on me. I should have been promoting this, but you have the Kentucky Fantasy Football State Championship podcast cooking at full speed right now I believe Shaw Limited was the latest guest on there right? Sound comes with me on game days special game days Monday and Thursday night, and any special night where we're playing football because of Kobe, cancellations to talk a little bit of the game and we went into Thursday night's game, and I think we hit about seventy percent right For big performances from certain players I think each of us has come to the conclusion that certain eagles in certain giants will not have any big for performances forthcoming for us in twenty. Twenty.

Rogers is a thing who Austin replacement is going to be in Cleveland and Ski, and the Dog John Lewis cousy and Barney newkirk will hang out with us to talk about the bears receivers not named Alan. Robinson deebo Samuel gained a ton more feral, you know what's interesting about skiing in Barney coming on tonight I am actually in a private dynasty league with these guys I think they know that it's me that's in this league but we are in a granted it's week seven and and this is a dynasty leagues. So we don't stop the regular season after after week eleven go a couple of weeks beyond that but we are in a heated battle for playoff positioning right now have to bring that up with them and let me tell you if it's bulky versus the second place guys in the FCC main event I'm behind the eight ball man. Well I'm glad that you brought that up book and I'm sure you'll do very very well Johnny Ski and CB There in I'm sure they're capable players but you know it gives me the opportunity to talk about what you're doing down here in Kentucky. I. Think Listeners should know. That in our springtimes league, we had two of 'EM. This one was the chequered flag championships five thousand dollar leak, and you are sitting firmly in first place of Your Partner L. E. Jones, division quarterbacks, Brady Gronk, and Anders tied in Cup Woods and Tyler boy. But I want you to tell me how you got these three running backs, Kamara, Roggio, and Aaron Jones. You've got quite a mixed players here balking you're on your way to compete for this championship in a very, very solid fashion. I was talking with a at PC high stakes player a couple of weeks ago, and he he was saying to me like look at the teams that went chimera and Aaron. Jones in the first and second round there the teams that are dominating right now I feel like we've had a bunch of of players come on the show who went with compare Jones and the first two rounds and then had very very. Successful team so far I was fortunate enough to do that one league and it is that part only Jones Division of that checkered flag contest with the KFC this year the Ronald. Jones. Thing I. think it was the right time because he was kinda slipping. This is when everybody was of the belief that Tampa was gonna find somebody to either compete with them or take steps away and I got him and. And I was fortunate enough to get. I had a lot of I am almost nine hundred dollars in my bad budget and I went a little crazy to get this week I. Think I paid like four hundred plus for him but I was hurting it tight end. So I wanted to make sure I got him on my team and we'll see what happens going forward obviously a lot of season. But Yeah that is my best Kentucky team right now and and we'll see what happens going forward. I'm looking forward to him have a lot of fun there for sure shadow to the chat room right now feel free to post any questions you all might have in there if you want to connect with us on twitter the show that HSF. Oh, I am at Eric Baldwin Feral is that Jay Pharaoh. You can. Post on our facebook page facebook dot com slash hsf our and feel free to give us a call three or four, seven, four to six, thirty, six, eighty, two that's three, four, seven game. You can also email the show at the inbox high stakes fantasy football. gmail.com if you have any questions for me for feral for St for Barney now is the time to send them. We will get to all those chat room questions, tweets, emails on the fantasy feedback segment coming up later on in the show, I want to thank our audio engineer, my best friend Bryce on our producer and mutual friend rob as well. also those guys responsible responsible for helping put together tonight's fantasy flash. Also football guys draft sharks and wrote world had a hand in that as well. Feral Joe Mixing has been ruled out for week seven against the Browns, mixing actually hurt. His foot in the first half of the week, six game tried to play through it and the second didn't work out. He could not practice all week. He's going to miss at least one game and could be multiple games and I'm just curious in maybe this goes without saying here. But if you have Giovanni Bernard on your team, regardless of the bengals offense to blind, regardless of how good the team is Giovanni Bernard is you're GonNa have to find a way to get them in your starting lineup as a running back to or as a flex right he's done it before and he's got the resume little yardage in Carey's this year he's got his usual. touches I. Mix An owner and so. Earlier in the season I looked up and despite his limited offensive carries he carried in the red, zone for Cincinnati and scored a touchdown he He's He's there with Feron he's there retrieving Williams. He's also this mixing situation I. Don't know how long it's going on, but it's right before the trading deadline. So perhaps, we can see some movement to get a player in here to help the Cincinnati bengals in the situation, but you know Joe Borough. LEADS ALL IF. Guys attempts he's throwing the ball forty, one times a game, and the Bernardus the lead back and a noted pass catcher that alone should get him to play. You need Pity Ryan is interesting. He could see could still some snaps you gotta go back a to two thousand seventeen but he had back to back one hundred yard games in this league and You know he has also the power, the beer we lost our beard in Miami. Excellent excellent before doing maybe he takes over. That distinction in the NFL. Yeah he was a hostile I remember Melvin Gordon set the all time single game rushing record for Wisconsin a few years back breaking a record that had been standing for two plus decades and it stood for about a week until Somalia P. Ryan, broke a week later for a long. He's certainly got the juice those legs to get it done for sure You talked about it at the top of the show the game last night between the Eagles and the giants. Unfortunately suffered the Sean Jackson finally finds a way to get back heel on a punt return He gets hurt pretty badly could not quote any weight on it to to get off the field and he was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain he I think he has already been placed on injured reserve. He's GonNa. Be Out at least the next three games but feral, it's going to be more that it's going to be four to six probably and and my question to you is this. Now I think we have travis fall firmly entrenched after three games. Now, pretty successful fantasy product production we know he's going to be the number one does this make Alshon Jeffery? Anymore. Desirable to you knowing that the Sean Jackson is probably going to be on the shelf until maybe early December. No less I'm looking at what they're doing with the young players team and picturing where they're going to be despite the NFC where where this team is going in I'm less interested. In Oh and Jeffrey and more interested in the youth is playing on this team ward is an interesting player. I, really really I really love drives Fogel and I kick myself. For, not binding on him after the first week when he was putting much celeste on the waiver wires after catching. Attention Week when I guess would have been a week for catching a touchdown in that week. So If you watch him play in in his victim of for my personal scouting of Red Zone because I didn't see him enough on red zone. If I get a game, I would have definitely gone out to get him. I have questions about any receiver right now in Philadelphia that Carson wentz is a wonderful fancy quarterback especially with his work. Along the goal line but man, it's from play to play considering what Carson is doing an NFL quarterback and he he's going to the Sean Jackson's injury came on special teams question. Maybe why he was back there returning those punch I know he's trying to make something happen to that shouldn't be the job for him and you look at You look at the upside of of where this what this backfield is going to do. win miles, sanders returned, and now they have a good one two punch with. Boston Scott who I think emerged in made plays. He made the Kinda plays that will keep him on the field and I think he bought into a lengthy career as a five which six inch running backs those guys come and go. But I think we're going to be talking about Boston stop for years to come. Big News out of Tampa. Today, we're going to get to that shortly but I wanna Kinda of put a button on this eagles giant's game. The one other thing that's maybe sides Boston Scott last night besides full besides the Jackson injury I was Richard Rogers the former packers tied on going crazy last night. He gets eight targets from Carson wentz catches six of them for eighty five yards. Now, this is interesting because accurate is on I. Are we heard there today Dow scattered might be out until week ten. This was the most receiving yards Rogers has. Has Gotten. It almost five years second most of his career and by the way, the first most in his career was that game against Detroit where Rodgers threw that hail. Mary. On Thursday night football and Rogers crop that sixty yard plus touchdown. So that was as most this was the second most it was also fifty more yards than Zach Ertz has gotten in any game so far this season Carson wentz loves the tight end I'm just kinda curious Sarah is Rogers thing now for the next couple of weeks with no Erz and no got in Philly. I think he's just things for the for the next couple of weeks in beyond I don't think this club is very happy with the way urged was playing and the attitude. He may have given lip service that you could see on the field that he was. Not, mentally, playing through the Plethora of injuries like he always has some some toughness is left is game. Got Her kid just glad to be there and glad to be getting chance to play a Richard. Rodgers yeah, he was on the receiving end of that Miracle Motown and you know Balki I. Think I think Richard Rodgers seven years around in this league. He's playing for the minimum I looked it up. Playing for nine hundred and ten thousand dollars and a matter of fact he was. So. Far Down in a veteran credit number that he actually is less than a nine, hundred, ten thousand hit on the salary cap. So how Roseman Brandon Brown the Front Office they did a nice job picking up this California bear and he can't help that he came out of college and went a team. Bulky I can't talk to you about what the Green Bay packers are. But you know they've never been a place for tight ends and You know he caught fifty eight passes one year back in two thousand, fifteen I think he's going to be a wonderful. Receiver Four Carson Winston as Troy Aikman told us last night. We couldn't get troy to quit talking about how the middle of the field was open I. Wish he'd called down to the eagles sidelines or maybe overdone offense coordinator as something, and then you know we also couldn't get troy to to to quit. Designing and teaching us about what cornerback switch was. down around the goal and either. We're having some remedial football but yes, rogers can run after the catch a little more than people give him credit for. These fine player he's on two of my F- F- PC. Teams and I. Wish I had put more way rewire money out there bulky. It's interesting too because I think in the mid nineties when the packers went to those two super bowls winning one that was really when they're at their their most powerful like the tight end with Keith Jackson and March myrrha you know bubba Franks was sort of a thing for a year or two but he his production was mostly You know dependent upon touchdown your Michael Finley could have been pretty elite but that is really cost him to and it's been. You know there there hasn't been a whole lot of down production out of green bay since then in fact, Robertson in the or Tanya as we out in the Green Bay, we've been for his name wrong all these years. And could be thing this year we'll see what happens there but Rogers certainly looking good in Philly we have John Scout Ski and Barney newkirk coming up in just one minute here. I do want to get to one more thing before we we talked to the second place team in the F. FCC main event big news today Tampa has signed Antonio Brown's who a one year contract. Now, the details have not been finalized and obviously Tony Brown has to go through the Kobe nineteen protocols before he can officially become a buccaneer but according to Espn Adam Schefter, he could play or at least we'll. Be Eligible to play as early as we can. Night Antonio Brown. If you remember was a teammate of Tom, Brady's very briefly in New England and Tampa looks like they are ready to go all in on a super bowl this year. So my question to you Farrell is Tony Brown He's on the wrong side of thirty but certainly, an elite athlete has put up massive numbers before how do how good is numbers get in Tampa when he comes in in week nine and how does it affect Chris God Mike Evans going forward now that the former pro bowler is going to be playing next to them. Not at all he he comes in as a significant insurance policy in a year when covert makes an insurance policy. Necessary. We see what's happening around your you know I'm sure. Later we'll talk a little bit about Emmanuel Sanders this very, very smart move and they'll get him some snaps it if. It precludes the end of the season for Scotty Miller and it takes away. it takes away some promising opportunities into needed opportunities for some of the younger receivers because they've got some good ballplayers on the depth chart of, but it does nothing it it does nothing to The all pro pro bowl receivers that. Brady became you know, and then when he does get he may have a role especially in big games. She's always been a big game player and whatever he does as long as a teen keeps winning. He's GonNa be a contributor to but I think he's going to be a small one in does that have been rostered for fantasy purposes? It's probably not anything that's GONNA make a huge difference for you. Yeah I'm kind of with you on that too, and I consider this to win Antonio Brown is is you know finally playing in week nine you would think it'll take a week or two to get up to speed. So maybe a week eleven, he's firing on all cylinders but they still you know injuries aside, there's still gonNA have grounds. There's still going to have Evans Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette Chris Godwin all viable taxing that Tampa offense and by then by week gauntlet is almost over and at that point you know if you're playing until you brown, it's not as a bi week fill in it's not. Maybe for an injury replacement, but it'd be out of desperation. You WanNA get your guy. He won't available for you in week thirteen none of the bugs. Exactly another great point too. So something to keep in mind there to temper your expectations with Antonio Brown do not temper your expectations for tonight's guest later on but we're going to bring them in right now they are former participants in the W C o f. f, and played in the FTC all all the way back since its inception in two thousand eight, they have nearly a dozen league championships under their belt in the F. FCC main event and the football guys, Players Championship and heading into week seven there in second place overall in the twenty one edition on the main event. Please welcome onto the show John Ski. Ski And Christian Barney newkirk gentlemen thanks so much for hopping aboard tonight. Thank you guys. We're just wondering what took you so long to invite him. So I teased this set at the top of the show guys. And I think you guys are aware. But in the Gridiron Legends Private Dynasty, League that that that we're both in we're we're in a dogfight right now for playoff position in that league. We are I got lucky in the redrafts out tomorrow and Rogers and Davante Adams. The players are. Yeah absolutely and that'll be that'll be a fun a fun showdown is not just us I mean there's there's plenty other teams, I I. There's it's actually fun league. You have lance services in that to packers and that Kirk. Ecus. the Dave. The diesel grzelak is in that that is a fun league Danny Mueller of courses in it It's it's awesome fun. We'll look forward to seeing how that league plays out going on. I do want to invest right. Yeah it is. It's the it's about the best, and certainly we have the best of the best of the show tonight with you guys because there's only one a set of teammates that are in second place in the PC main event and that's you guys I want to pick your brains with fantasy football sodas. Farrell. Tonight. But before we do that, can you tell the listeners what you do for a living I'm GONNA. Let you take this one first and then Barney go ahead after he's done. Tried to spend a little shout out to our fans and family an APP for in Dutch are Alaska Alaska Barney, and I both worked there. I've known him since he was not as old and his family, and we actually started playing fantasy football about. Thirty years ago before we had Internet she'll be did all of our scoring when the when the Monday paper came in. Tuesday April. We've been doing this for quite a while and. And you know last year we had. To we had three teams in the top twenty. So we're. Wa. We fell apart. We fell apart about a week four week five. Maybe too much of too much of our very laughing dog beer. I'm not sure what happened but. This year like with Kobe airing we. We drafted. We drafted with a lot of this year and. And we were not fortunate enough like I guess you have in the past to get out tomorrow to drop tonight. Thing but. We We we drafted. This year and what I did I went to a long story short I went to. Alaska to work in a cannery at twenty years old. After three months contract and I ended up staying forty one years there. And what I retired at sixty one to. Take care of my my elderly father. He's ninety two years old World War Two vet Vietnam Vet Korea that so. Yeah I about a place in Boise down here with Barney lose to and. Long Story Short actually I'm busier now than when I was working but. We you guys I love that in the story that you have staying power and congratulations and continued. Good health for your father Johnny. Ski You know I WANNA. Drink my first question to you. You guys just. when you drafted some this year baulky clued me into the fact that you did something that did I, and apparently you're doing most of the if if we are doing anything like you're doing better. So congratulations and I wish my teams could fall apart like your teams and still be in. The top one hundred or the top twenty. But but anyway, you guys waited on tidying when I first started playing in the F. FCC, I couldn't quite figure tied in I had too much died in I had two little tiny in you guys waited this year I waited to the ninth round and ended up with Gronk, and Two. Very good players and mismanaged terribly how did waiting workout for you and has that been? Is that been something that you do more often than not. typically what we do and it's my philosophy for year and Barney's flaccid. We try to get to top running backs with our first two picks. And we have always waited on tight ends and you know a lot of. Happen at the end you know gets about the ninth hundred going holy crap. We don't have a tight end and he looked guys kiddle and they have kelce. And when you play against him, it's like. You know we have a man named. That we have. This year we waited till like eight or th round and I think earlier than earliest and we said we'll pass them. We'll go for say John, which were really high in Jonah this year. And Jared Cook, those type of guys and then. You know and and the League's this happens every year in fantasy football. Somebody comes out of nowhere. Well, it's going to be running back a wide receiver tied him and so. In and week four. We you know we read. Like, like all the other fantasy people you. Scour every site there is, and we saw the one that said it is Robert Tanya. The next George Kill. My Dad being a big packer families, I told Bonnie I. So you know we got to put some money on this and luckily we did it and we didn't have to spend a lot of course the very next week he scored thirty eight point. So it's That Saves Your Bacon in those that's what happens a fantasy football. But We. We last year we had a team called Mikey likes. That we did well with and we went out of the norm we we uptick we have. Number two we have. McCaffrey. He felt the number two for some reason we took McCaffrey and then we took kibble and then we patrick Welsh and that was the. First Round Fantasy football pretty much make your team. And and so we did with that but typically, we don't go for tied in to like and the same with quarterbacks. We don't take a quarterback. Until eighth or ninth or tenth round either so. It just happened to work out I mean Lewis Smith is nothing to sneeze that neither is jared cook. We were really I, this year on Herbs Smith. And he started out slow but you know the last couple of games, he's starting to catch balls so. where? We're hoping. That sorta Selah both to when you wait on Titan hitting on those guys correctly that makes your team huge really makes it a championship contender as you guys know being second place in the F. FCC main event I. This is another one to a question to bring up here. Barney. This is for you. You guys have another top fifty team in the main event. Right now, and one of the things that is in common with both these teams is CD. Win On both the squad's what was it about him that you guys knew he'd be a good choice for you. When you know going into the season, you knew he'd be competing for targets not only with Mario Cooper and Michael Gals the blank Darwin and Ezekiel Elliott as well. Full. News. The. Dow. Off. We. We had What about? You guys. were. You, know my home and then. I can. Oh Man. I. And I am. Far. WHO HAD WE? have. Any right and One. Guy. The BIG BEAVER man. I mean getting who or. Huge for that. Jerry. you. Don't want to go. Away. Shooting. Down Seven. Johnny you know you and see I gotta I gotta ask before I get to my next question I wanna ask you a bulky posted a picture of your impending appearance here on the high stakes fantasy our and it looked to me. Like you guys were sitting around look like section one, Fifty, eight, one, sixty in the outfield. They're Comiskey Park TAG THAT ABOUT RIGHT About right. There thirty five and we. We we go. Fill the dream last year. Barney's the Chicago Bears Fan. My Dad's a huge packers fan. Of course he could tell all my hat and all my other stuff. I'm I'm a huge steelers fan. So we decided to go to the opening game last year we went to Chicago and and watch the game and we got the cheap seats. So he could buy buy more beer because the beers pretty expensive. I like. I really like what you guys are talking about this beer I've got to make a run to Chicago in and spend some time and seeing some of this winning can rub off on me I I I don't wonderful experience couple of summers ago at Comiskey Park ended up at Tommy Turtles. Met a wonderful young lady that asked me for Moody. Tongue and I really thought we had skipped first base and we're going somewhere else completely until I found out that was running Chicago Craft Beers and so I know. A Moody but. We discovered the best pizza in the world as a jere. Donald's if you ever get there, you have to. It's more like a pot. Pie. And We had a great time there and the only thing I played about soldier field where he used to. Be on the West Coast and being in Alaska a lot of mariners. Games we've been to see UPS Games, not fans of either but it's supposed to. And You get out of the restaurants is the bar and he stay right into the into the Games you know a soldier field we stayed up at Hyatt regency it took fifteen minutes to walk to the stadium. We got there three hours early because we were so excited, there's no bars around soldiers field. It's a problem, there's a park, they have a park and that's about it and you can't get beer park, which you know what you can get in the Los Angeles chargers backfield. This weekend is to opportunities to score some fantasy points and I've been setting with this I. Personally Am Big Big Fan of guy you guys have roster I met him in my other world. As a professional sports agent, he is one of my favorite guys I've met in the last decade and that's Joshua Kelly and I pumped his horn a little too much in previous gain came out against New Orleans he and Jackson both at Opportunities Jackson was the hot hand. He got he got the more opportunities than what we thought was going to be a fifty fifty split maybe a sixty forty split four, Josh It was more of a seventy percent going to Jackson. Now my questions for us the Jacksonville Jaguars Rolling here. Twenty eighth worst defense against the rush. we know the head coach Anthony Glenn wants to run the ball. We got a quarterback throwing the ball thirty, five times a game, and that's not exactly the team that he's designed to play although he does have these great wide receivers. So my question to you is we think the chargers are going to get ahead in this game. Is Joshua. Kelly get the action in the second half as they try to tell them that ball pick up for and five yards a carry and soak that went away in which running back. Are you guys going to put in your? Started in any of our lineup right now. I. Mean We got we got a little bit of depth but yeah, he's great i. mean we were we were hoping for a little more touchdown action. I mean you know the even with Austin after being there we thought Kelly was going to be the guy that that was gonna the touchdowns right I mean that that was what it was coming coming through training camp and he looked good and he was going to he was gonNA. Do his thing and he hasn't really done that and he's fumbled and he's and he's he's looked. Pretty Mediocre. You know in in a in a role that he should have ran away with. And the jetsons. He's a talent man there ain't no doubt about that I know. That, you know I hope that they they give them a little more of a split. You know I'd like to see fifty fifty anyway and give give. Give Kelly them. Goal Line carries like they were there they were going to or we thought they were going to Yeah Man I think you I I definitely think you can score a touchdown here. this week Why not? and Do Herbertson. Amazing. You know. How great to receivers and a great tight end get down to that goal and and give it to Kelly man I think he's four touchdown here. Targeting with skiing the burn dogs second-place team in the F. FCC heading into week seven This might be a little bit of a sensitive subject for you but what's going on with your juice misuse or? No. That's question number one, and then also how safe is it to say that chase? Klay. Pool is actually going to be the Pittsburgh Receiver You WanNa get your lineup going forward and that's misuse there should be bad if these fantasy owners can afford to do it. Well, you know as my favorite team and I say. What a problem, Pittsburgh? Dad's many weapons I mean they're. Tight end? have four wide receivers running back and catch the ball this. After last year. You know we we mistakenly drafted Juju really I last year. And and then of course, big then got her and we didn't touch him anywhere this year we didn't want them and that's What I see happening is He's on the outside. Does he? Can be a lot of theories. He drives a double coverage Klay pools open over the middle, the entree Johnson's a freak when he gets the ball and James Washington's No slouch. So I, I don't know if it's just a week to week and I did some I did some homework I look that all have the same they all have the same amount of targets are on the upper twenties and so Do. Do you, bench. Juju I. mean that's a talented but right now play pool is the flavor ice cream favorite ice cream of the last two weeks but the has been out. Come back and get all the reception so. I'm not I'm not heartbroken. I. Mean They have a tough game this week. we have we have Derrick Henry, and in this team as a matter of fact, by the way I gotTA. Let you know we are in first place right now just from last night's game or Got About that but This is a this is a long. Among season that mean at sixteen weeks, you go through this and It there's GonNa be some up and now there's a great team behind this and I can't remember the name but you know he had he had three of the. Cardinals that. That just went off and it's It's GonNa be a long season but I, I'm not too worried about Juju and. If juju draws double coverage whether you're GonNa have some guys open across the middle, but we didn't touch him anywhere. Be You know we had? Our number, one wide receiver and a Lotta people. Let's remember. Well, I'd receiver in every draft book was a governor. Really we're governor. So know back to the question. I'm not I'm not too worried about the steelers just a big game this week. And hopefully they keep marching. Now. CBS got the last running back question that I had and and either one of you guys can answer this but I'm going to direct it to you. John. My favorite one of my favorite players I can't get. I never get tired talking about this player Rahim most D- How many. How many most are raw strings? Did you guys have often did you graft? And we we didn't get them anywheres matter of fact we like I said. The longer you can get into next year I I keep wanting to find out ways that I can make people notice that I think this one grace running backs in the game and I'm GonNa put for your benefit runge like a steeler. So you can pick out your team runs like but I really love. CV says, you guys are too much. To step to play Joshua Kelly away wait a minute. What's what's he saying there I'm I'm sorry I was talking so against you. Well motoring. Being Off. They got too much I. Mean they're the only you? Why would you even sign I mean just give the rain. The Guy I I really. Agree with you too and I think more that was coming especially when he opened the game, I can't remember who it was against but we opened the game with an eighty yard touchdown. I think was the pitch catch and run Two weeks ago, but he's gone for a while he's out of this lineup. So my question despite the fact that he runs like a steeler, he won't be running for the next few weeks to the niners you kind of mentioned it. We have Jerry McKenna, player that that like Shawn. Jackson can't get off the IRA and I I, hope good things comes to Jerry McKinnon like to also talk to you about rookie running back free agent that shows flashes je Michael Hasty was waiver wire pickup now see. I, WanNa Talk to you about your Michael Hasty because our listeners are lesser mortals like me these are some of the running backs, Kelly and hasty we're talking about playing. Well, we don't. We don't have the depth that you guys have at it but if you look at this forty nine or situation, and for the benefit of all other listeners, can you tell us McKinnon Hasty Jeff Wilson to the forty niners drop off at the position or do they put up points weekend against the Patriots? Oh, I think I think they've put up points and I think it's a philosophy. It's it's what they do in San Francisco. Certain. Teams can do this and it's they always have that saying in the NFL next man up. And we watch hasty and We didn't pick them up anywhere and I was reading an article today saying that he runs like marshawn Lynch and well, that's kind of a big statement you know but. If you have a good offensive line and you have some receivers out there and you can hand the ball off, I mean the forty niners do this it's kind of a plug and play. I'm thinking his career kicks off, and then he gets McDonald's as a sponsor, and then we get the McKay she burger, the mckays be breakfast and. It's going to be Who knows it's I just you know we it's not that we weren't high moster before the season started them and. We're great partners. Because we have a lot of the same philosophy and then we have to him and you know another inject Alshon. Jeffery. Was a big one last week Barney and I. I'm not a big Bernie. Fan. So our Geoffrey van Gogh. Let him take one player that he likes and he he let me take a player. That's. Not, so, high but. The niners up and down Garoppolo came back to school lead muck that Avi look a lot better last week. and New England is. An England is not New England was in the past but. I. Think it's GonNa be a tough him. I think it's pretty much and the forty niners to win that game. Well I think I. You Eighty. Eight. Full. Talking with John Lewis Goski and Barney new Kirkby second-place team in the F. FCC main event right now Barney is their second wide out from Chicago that you can make an argument for being rostered and high stakes leagues or is that just something to shy away from just make sure Ellen Robinson is starting for you and don't worry about Ross. How do you feel about that? Yeah, there is another number. Round No But No I'm I'm. Being in. That you. but. We. Shall run they winter games with with the. but Jimmy down. I think. I five eight. Four. Indian. and that's What? Right I mean if he has. Three or four reception you know Forty Yard Win. But yeah. Would start any other. Other CHICAGO WHY Share. On fire this point. Running right now. And we'll take that. they're eating when football game and hey, you got now. And that that is that. You know. You're running a pets. John I gotTA question. I. Got a question for you and I know I can get an honest answer because I am talking about a Tennessee Titan wide receiver they're playing Pittsburgh steelers this week you know I I like you I I think this is a road team. This is this is my pick of a week and I think Pittsburgh comes in here and walks away. With this game but Corey Davis a player that I've admired for long that really had a rough year last year returns to the lineup after after his Kobe benching. And is he a guy? That you could foresee. With the excellent passing games that Tannehill is had. Tannahill ranked in In in quarterback. Rating as number four quarterback in the League is in front of a Lotta guys throw the Baltimore. Now he gets back Corey Davis is Corey Davis. Player. That you could get in your line of. With an opportunity or some of your favorite names, it's Patrick Hayden. kid came over from. Kansas. City Nelson and then then edmonds do those guys which I know you know all their names that those guys shut down all receivers. From the Tennessee Titans of I'll give you the final. I'll give you the final hit two, hundred, nineteen passing yards allowed by the Pittsburgh. steelers. How are you looking at Corey Dave's? ME I. Don't I don't think hurry is a big a big star, a good start Aj Brown wheel that he gets up like it's on this team we do have Derrick Henry and when you have Derrick, Henry and you can play. Action Am. You got you Li- any wide receivers there's the whole offensive line of him and watch him go and. I think it's going to be. I think the game is going to be closer than a lot of people think. and Tennessee's no slept there there slobber knocker team kind of like the steelers like the bears they have. They have a great defense they played to their competition. Tannehill milliner, he was put out dry for him and he have to start in Tennessee and he he's just run with it and he he's been very. We're open through a big game John. This week. And Keep cussing. You know put I. Hear Back on the bench, get him off the field. We Want Jon Allen there and it's And Forza unfortunately he got hurt last week and I had a big game but. Corey when we we did draft Corey this year. And and we looked at it and we said you know he's When he was drafted, he was supposed to be the the next. Great. A great wide receiver and he just he just hasn't hasn't produced but he really good this year I don't know if it's because I think he's in a contract here and he's trying to prove his worth you know, and then of course Kobe him but I'm thinking this is going to be smash up game and and we're hoping for another ninety four yard run out of Derrick Henry and and you know we have plants are being up I like forty or fifty points this last week and Era Aaron Rodgers that's what we did. We did Aaron Rodgers. Out To bill and we've had weeks where we drafted like I said, we have to to two running backs. We like everybody seems to be getting there and Jones. In the second round we got him in the second round, and then we went with the Calvin. Ridley's the lockets the boys, and we've had a separate through a few weeks. There was a couple of weeks over Boyd and look like nine points between the two of them. We go what the heck's going on but you know we had our bacon say like we said, well, Robert Time in the one game and Derrick Henry this last week. And I we might be limited on time here but I gotTA share it a little story on that Tuesday game. We're out here and. We're. That week was week that Aaron. Rodgers was on on a by and then it looked like Tennessee. made a play on. May Not. Play on. Tuesday. So we scrambled we spent way too much money on the Ernest Johnson we went and luckily got Teddy Bridgewater we stuck in my dad was out here as we're going through the game. And of course, like we had way too much beer again it got towards. They got towards the end of the game and getting ready the down the end zone and buying. How we're not going to get I and he turns around and rolls out and throws the ball Johnny. Long story stores where we jump up and down my dad was on the dog comes from the backyard the grandkids coming from the House my dad was down. My Dad goes down on the ground. He's ninety two years old when I say. Her back. In her tax so you know macgyver I pulled by extension cord out of the wall cut. Peel Day ends back and I said plug it in and he goes what are you? GonNa do and I go. I'm in Zap them. Yeah we zapped him and he came to he's recovering now he's just got a couple of burn marks on his chest, but he came through and it was A. Like, we've never we've been like I said last year we had a team in second place and this year was the end ended the week two weeks ago in first place and it was A. If you'd have been, we've got the steelers man came out here in the garage and I think everybody in the neighborhood was please we were so loved him. Oh, hi I'm God what Nori Holy I believe. He's got a pacemaker I might have shocked when the death. But. In Tinley continued good health to today guys they were neighbors are calling police. Nobody's calling in everyone's because John's got the John John knows what to do with you electricals of the House and we. fell out calls. Believable on. Hey, guys, I, know we're running short on time but I do federalize one more question before we get to that we do have time for one email here ski I'm GonNa Pitch this to you it's from Jason and Polk City Florida he writes what's up guys Deebo Samuel at New England or Adrian Peterson in Atlanta this week Jason. Thank you for the email. What what would you be doing what? Would it be Samuel or Peterson for you? Now, we're both going. People and You hear so. Much down reliant And Ronaldo right now go. Skiing I want you to go first and and Barney I want you to follow up. So ski and see, Here's the thing I need from you. This is this is the toughest question. This is why it's always last is the very, very tough. This question because you've gotTa tell me, you know how to only player. That will be a bust and a player that will be asleep or they wait until I ask the question because I got it. There's important information that you must know in the area of bus devante Freeman, in various Slayton they're off the table you can't use it. So for bus John Lulu, I gave busted sleeper, and then we'll go then we'll go to boarding. I got a couple of bucks and it's it's a it's it's a wide receiver. We'd just love for years. We always call them smurfs. I there's no way out I. Don't know he's older he's banged up or he's not meshing with his quarterback, but doing elements gotta sit on the benches. love the guy in other wes welker. You know and and we even picked up a the Miller kid out of Out of Tampa Bay, 'cause Brady thing, and he was the next West Baltimore in the element and that didn't produce much for us but. I Love Gillian elementary what he what he's done and over his career but it just I'm not sure the problem is if he's banged up trying to do too much just thirty forty years old and wear and tear. Oh. To go off this weekend. There's been a few of 'em I made a list. I I'M GONNA go at JD mckissick out of out of. Jd mckissick an you watch the last couple of games. Sure. By everybody it's fantasy football. The the guy is a we drafted Gibson everywhere and I think I did get him in the in the gridiron legitimate league this year in the draft do but. It's like him and Jonathan Taylor I. Mean you expect these guys to come right into the NFL they're gonNA take off well. Gibson they're not no. They're not the rock that much. But mckissick catching balls running he looks. The even the ballclub version of James Wight, and he's well when fourteen points every week and he's doing a wonderful job win or lose, and you would expect him to do well against the cowboys Barney way you got forest. Barney back to life and give those those long. Pack Up. But the thing you know who you're. Right. I mean you know you then number. Each facing the number two team against. Right. I mean Dave Ramsey joke hold. The game from last year show well I'm not saying don't start. Him. But I. Can Walk Man who? Also. Keep, been. Interesting. The bears only allow one. Orleans. Than that you. Got To. Even even. Sleep. I don't see like going on. and. My My. Breaking Up. I mean, the guy was AP. Nobody's been on on the way. I want. Especially if gone. He was always. Age, blanket for I Love Colby's. Hey Impact to don't get him about. whow there's Of. Your lineup. Why and I, love it. It's good stuff. It's great analysis from two very talented players tonight, the second place F F PC main event team owners heading into week seven. It is John Lewis, Goski and Barney newkirk gentleman good luck in not only the main event put in all your leagues this season I wanNA. Thank you so much for taking some time out of your weekend to join US tonight. We certainly enjoyed it and we'll talk to you again real soon guys be safe and enjoy week seven. Okay. Thanks for having us. Guys. Say. Thank you exactly John Lithgow Ski, Barney newkirk ladies. Joe. Hey you know I should I should say this to I fair I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not you might be but I host a local fantasy football show in northeast. Wisconsin here on Thursday afternoons on the terrestrial radio is Howard Stern calls at one of my co host for that show is is radio name is Leo. Kuyper junior and his usually spot on with this call and one of his breakouts this week jd mckissick, one of his boss Alan Robinson. So it's it's it's it's teaming remember where start mckissick and and he wasn't saying and I don't think he'd get venture then but I do think you have to temper your expectation within this week, which is unfortunate because I got a lot of Robinson. This year Farrell. They you might have a lot to back him up and you just you just heard our expert tell ya twelve thirteen points would be a big game. She'd get more from somebody else bulky. He'd be the brave men bedrooms. Yeah. I might have to do that. We'll see we'll see how much liquid courage I have on Saturday night when. On My lineups. All right. So let's get through. We've got a few minutes left in the show. Let's get through as many emails as we can't from the listeners Corona California's we're Henry's emailing us from he writes. Would you guys start jared? Cook on a Saints Team Without Michael Thomas or the recently resurgent Gronk thanks gentlemen that has Henry in Corona California. Will fail this is interesting because not only is Michael Thomas Out this week with that hamstring injury but Emmanuel Sanders on the covid nineteen, unless they're going to be their top two receivers, it's going to be traded on Smith and like Bennie Fowler and somebody'll with the Harris in these other guys receiver. So to me this make cook very appealing I would start him over Gronkowski this week. NO WE'RE GONNA, start, Gronkowski Caskey's coming up in a very, very big game against the raiders and then gronk breaks through as he did this past weekend that's all we need. It's it's now becoming. It's it's now becoming the kind of play every week for Gronkowski. Now, I like your Cook Place. Nice versus ninth versus the type in the panthers are that doesn't bother me much cook good games against the panthers. Last year I don't know how important that is but I am a little frustrated when you get outside the first few rounds of of the saints layers. Emmanuel Sanders was a nice last later round pick up. To quickly get to my point at the quarterback position, they bring in another player to play quarterback at the tight end position multiple tight ends. especially as you get closer to the goal line I think cook is a good good blue collar player. This is a blue collar multifaceted coach tinkering lineup changing a team every as as. The saints get whistled more often it seemed like for illegal lineups because their stuff that they just haven't quite figured out I got so many new plays i. if they were more of a traditionally run football team and I could count on breeze dropping back in targeting this tiny and I am going forward we cook. But GRONKOWSKI's my man in this Choosing between these two. Yeah I. Hope You're right because I will be playing Gronkowski a lot. This week to he's targeting on up for what it's worth every single week so far this season. So we'll see what happens with ground case our good buddy and one of our all time if not are all time greatest listener Hudson current read the Wasp Guy. In. The chat room he wants to know Farrell is Henry Rugs, great question for you Mr Raiders rugs started going forward right now after he's had a big game now for Las Vegas. Let's one of my all time. Favorite guys there in New York state. Yes. You must get henry rugs in your line up and I just saw bleep come across the screen Gruden believes that the office of line will be we'll be back and. They haven't played that well for the raiders but at least a unit intact is better than what we were looking at earlier in the week. So rugs should be in your lineup. He's also a jet sweep threat. He's also screamed pass threat. The best thing I could say about rugs is in Kansas City game everyone saw car hit him with a perfect crossing pattern for touchdown. But when I was impressed with rubs is when car? The ball miserably could have been intercepted. A lot of receivers will try just to knock the pass down and make sure that defensive back didn't catch it rigs physical. The the safety went back found the boss said rigs rubs Henry Rugs he's your guy. Strong on this player I believe you'll be targeted off and I think he's fancy gold. Let's go to stand in Mooresville north. Carolina. This is more saint stuff here. It's a pastor future decision for me a quarterback this week just. Hosting Jacksonville or drew brees facing my panthers in the superdome that is standing Mooresville North Carolina Stan appreciate the email appreciate your listening. I you know not to keep beating instead horse, but you're breezed without weapons and just herbs but looking really good Maybe the chargers looking really good but curves looking real good I'm gonNA play Herbert I. Actually like him quite a bit this week. I might play him too but probably not for that reason, we discuss the taste them. He'll in fact, that's what that's what I was looking for it. It's bothers me so much. I forget the players named Tastes Hill of when that when brees has Alvin. Kamara. Sometimes I think he has all the weapons. You need a look at Kamara. When he's out in a past patter when he when he when you see him run out of the backfield forty percent of the time breezes throwing to him and and Kemar is one of the best pass catchers in the league despite the fact that he's listed as as running back but it is. It is Herbert with the chargers whose with Jacksonville talked earlier about the fact of the boys that we had on. Ski and CB they they could not get really excited about Josh what Kelly and perhaps they don't see it. That the chargers this game where return more to a running attack. herber stolen the ball thirty, five times a game Yeah this is this is a tough one. I'm going to I'm going to side with you for different reasons just because I, WanNa see her throwing to Mike Williams and I think is tight in Hunter Henry finally breaks loose and has his very significant game. Yeah, we're waiting on that Hunter Henry breakout maybe it will be this week indeed Zach in Pittsburgh writes dear bulky and feral maybe Melvin Gordon, status will ultimately dictate my decision, but should I roll with Philip Lindsey or Jerick McKinnon on Sunday appreciate you that Zach? Pittsburgh. Thank you so much that officially, Melvin Gordon. Is is not going to be disciplined by the broncos. I. Believe he was practicing this week I don't have the official status, but I know as far as I can tell, he hasn't been listed as out Philip Lindsay Melvin born in the broncos are hosting the Kansas City chiefs this weekend, which should be a cold game and I heard there's going to be snow there to. Various. Total on that game has dropped three and a half points since it's open and the chiefs of actually gone up quite a bit in the spread as they are now eight point favorites in that game and we do know that Jerick McKinnon is going to be an action or should be an action on Sunday at his San Francisco forty. Niners are taking on the New England patriots in Foxborough Feral What would you do here? Would you go with Lindsay or role with McKinnon? Running backs are successful in the passing game against the chiefs and then they're going to be a chase position. I like the fact you know Snowy Games are tougher on the defense and it is in the office I don't know why the total. visit it's much tougher on defense that the offense knows where it's going in. Philip Lindsay went for over a hundred last week. He didn't catch a pass, but he will against the chiefs and that's what makes me like Lindsey. A little bit more than McKenna because the fellas we talked to they said, it's not the same New England team but they are an attacking team on defense and they will attack that They're rushing opportunities and I think rob lowe has many many targets to work with I think they're going to have to throw the In New England to amass points to get the win despite what happened last weekend this is really a toss up and it comes down to just. whoever? You personally like the best I have a difficult time separating these players. So Balki I'm GONNA throw this back you you're going to have to give me advice here on to start. Yeah, I mean for me I'm GonNa Roll with Lindsay and and I get what you're saying about how you know running backs will be able to achieve points in the passing game and I think that I would lean towards McKinnon having a bigger passing game impact Then then Then Lindsay Lindsay didn't catch pass last week in in his return and that was out Melvin Board. But I, I you know he ran so hard on the ground and and I feel like when you look at What, what the Denver Broncos are going to be able to do you know no offense coming off an injury like Tim Patrick this week I'm not too keen on Jerry Judy. For whatever reason just doesn't seem like they've developed much of a connection with with him and drew lock but I think Lindsay. From the volume aspect of me is what tips the scales here. So I'm going to start and then the over Mackinnon in that matchup Let's move on. It is Terry in San Antonio, he wants to know love this. Oh, first of all, love the show guys. Thank you. Can you help me? I know Christian Kirk only had the two catches last week, but they were both for scores is he trending up while Gallup is trending Down I can only start one this week. Thank you so much terry in San Antonio this week you look at those those teams it is the Arizona cardinals destroyed the cowboys on Monday night football what a game that was the cardinals are hosting. The Seattle seahawks second could turn into a shootout potentially fifty five and a half is the total on this game. and then those cowboys are taking on the Washington football teams in DC that game forty four and a half total. But Washington's actually a point favorite feral I think I would lean towards gala period. Just the Kirk thing makes me nervous the only way I would really play Kurt is if the Andrea Hopkins Somehow, this game which I think is going to happen. They wore out you're exactly right cardinals wore out on both sides of the ball the. DALLAS, cowboys and Kirk had two touchdowns but you know. They were or out won that game going away and they completed nine passes. You don't have to have volume from the quarterback and when you do get volume, it's going to go to Hopkins. So I take a look at what Michael Gallup's game means. We have a We have a quarterback here that script and bad luck for caused situations that he was unsuccessful with last Monday night turnovers and some difficult calls for him and I'm not making excuses randy dolphin but I, did expect a different game here in Louisville Kentucky. We have always had plenty of Bingo fans around and they always talk what can andy do when he has the weapons and he got all the weapons around and none of them particularly played. Well, I think they've got it straight in the fourth quarter. I think CD lamb cooper make nice catches, Gallup, very, very rough game especially dropping obvious touch. So with that being said, we talked earlier about Gallup having the skillset. They relates very very well to proverbial red rifle and I. Think those guys are going into this game. Washington and we'll we'll connect and continue to connect and they will have to have a very, very impressive offense of game. I don't know if you've got the total in front of you Baulky, but they'll have to have. A very impressive off engine game to cover their defense is kid allen playing quarterback over there for Washington. maclaurin was targeted twelve times last week it was very successful expect that to continue they have a lot of tools and what she didn't they can be competitive. So I see Dallas working hard to answer that the work at three wide receivers and gala could be one of the better ones. Yeah, you're right on that total on that game is indeed forty four and a half for that game. So we'll see what happens another one of those great NFC showdown that we are treated to this year Numbers to are the the numbers a little well. And it has come down to that's another game that's coming down whatever reason all the totals are plunging over betters you make able to sunshine get in on those games right now both in that Kansas City, Denver game and that Dallas Washington game final email tonight it's from Tom. He's in Chicago. He writes I play in a deep tight end premium league and lost off lever should I pick up Harrison Bryant or David, and to start the next couple of weeks at a minimum keep up the great work that is tom in Chicago I can tell you their targets have been roughly the same since David the joke who came back I think joke who has one more target but he's Running a lot more routes than than Harrison. Bryant. Now I had the I, I had the opportunity in the Scott fishbowl which I know I've talked about on this show before another very deep league on tight end premium on first down, it's kind of an on scoring system but I didn't have the opportunity to pick up joke who is he was already taken, but I did pick up some Bryant this week and we'll see what happens going forward with hooper cabinet appendectomy. I mean he's in danger of missing week eight as well So certainly there there could be starting potential both this week and next week feral if I had my druthers I would lean towards A. but I'm not sure you know what the ceiling is for any of these guys given the way the browns been playing and the fact that they still have Odell Beckham Kareem, Hunt and Jarvis Landry catching passes out there. Your lean in the right direction I. Think Balking I'm GonNA help push you that way joke who has the resume and he has the history and he's a that's been separated. From his football opportunities because of his body letting him down, he had fifty six catches back in two, thousand eighteen and I think he has all the talent in the world plus he's another guy that's asked to be traded, and now he gets his opportunity to play because the unfortunate situation with cooper say he was the first round draft pick if I recall out of money and the Cares Bryant Came in the mid round. This year is good ball player. He's got all the measurable bills, the Triangle Measurable that you want from Italian fourth-rounder out of Florida. Atlantic. I. Think he's a fine ballplayer. Think. He's a rookie player that's just happy to be there and happy to have a job and be to find himself surprise that he's probably on the field and contributing jokers. The way that you need to go here you know last we talked about Cleveland last week, and we talked about Odell Beckham a little bit whether or not we would roster. And I think we gave a very similar answer and we were diplomatic and that answer and I turned to television on to see the fourth quarter, The browns previous game. So go back on walking around the sidelines without shoes on no matter who play and who your roster you really do want to count on them playing for quarters and have their head in the game with with. You with the with Beckham's head wherever it might be in with ribs for Landry I think I I think. There's some some other choices, some other names and other targets that we're GONNA see. stepping out for Baker Mayfield God knows somebody needs to Cincinnati. Bingo game was there counting on winning in joke who might be that got to deliver for? The Guy, who delivers on this podcast? Every week is fair. Ali at you.

2021 Top 12 Players; Best Coaching Vacancies (01/05 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from cbs. Sports it's time to dominate your fantasy league. Now here's some combination of adam. Dave jamie heath. Ben everybody a beautiful day here on tuesday. What is it january. Who cares. it's the new year to do day over it. I've ready to move by. We're looking forward now. Sober looking to week. Seventeen we'll We'll talk about our top twelve's for twenty twenty one and all the coaching changes in what it could mean for fantasy atom. As or dave richard. And jamie eisenberg guys. I think i'm going to good mood because last night. I decided i'm sure you all making the same decision. Now that the regular season's over which tv show am. I going to binge watch. And i made a decision last night. I'm very happy about it. What are you guys What are you guys on now with. All this free time i'm going to catch up. I haven't seen season two of the mandalorian. Some watch that Hopefully soon you'll love it. And what else was i gonna watch. i forget what else has been catch a move zoom in my camera here for those of you on youtube okay mandalorian. Maybe i'll start sits creek. Oh yeah i'm almost time. We're on our last season there. That's we gotta finish that one. You'll enjoy that. Dave about you buddy. Watch a lot of stuff. But i did make time for the mandalorian during the football season and it was awesome. Okay everybody seems to like it. Maybe maybe someday i'll watch star wars. I started cobra kai last night. Oh yeah that's the one that's it you go you're gonna start it or you already have. Yeah it's it's so far so good everybody. Everybody loves it. Yeah all right. So we're in koci. We'll talk we'll chop about. You just started. Yeah two episodes. I'll do that before mandatory. Okay cool all right. Well we'll try to try to be the first season by the end of the week. We pull it off. That's easier okay. I did breaking bad in like two weeks. Thursday show but the first season ten episodes five hours. I'll try okay all right all right. So let's get it to guys News and notes here start with josh jacobs arrested for a dui outside about him in a second what he did in twenty twenty but are we concerned. That jacobs and or melvin. Gordon could be suspended to start the season by the way. We'll fuller's go into miss week. One of the twenty twenty one season as he completes his suspension. But both jacobs and gordon dealing with a dui situation jamie should we think about a possible suspension. In gordon's case. Yes just based on the fact that it seems like it's been heading that heading that direction with his court case being pushed back. I guess they guess you have to say the same thing about jacob's that there's a potential for it but i would imagine just given the fact that is no. They're only first time offenders. He probably talking about a two game suspension. If in fact that's what they deal with. So i'm i'm totally not factual information there. I don't know what what it could be. But speculating probably two games if they are suspended at all so you have to see how the legal process plays out and what happens with both of those guys. Okay yeah. I didn't mean to put you on the spot like that. I know we don't know but if you're doing a mock draft today or something like that you know do you do you knock them down thinking that i guess obviously plenty of time to figure it out. The broncos are going gonna hire a gm so that's probably a good thing some playoff stuff. Alvin kamara jared goff and seattle safety jamal adams we don't know their situations. Yeah we don't know if they're going to be able to play. They're all gonna be iffy for this. Weekend's games philadelphia. I'm sure dave you put you probably have more up on this certainly than i am but you seem to know about the cap situations but the eagles could be seventy three million dollars over the salary cap. They are going to look dramatically different next year and hopefully better. But i don't know they've got to cut. They've got to cut a lot of dead weight so but they're in a tough spot right now and as of now carson wentz is actually a negative hit on their cap usually. When you cut a player you get some cap savings. They would lose almost twenty five million if they were to just cut carson wentz not going to happen but there are some lawyers. I right yeah. Everything changes. There's a june first thing designation. I don't necessarily have to do it on the calendar on june. Second or anything like that. You designate him as post june. I got you could do that. And then that changes it a little bit. But i believe if they trade him after june first or with that designation that gives them the most relief of all like they've got a lot of guys that have been negative. Kathy they're gonna have a lot of work to do this. That they restructured. Alshon jeffery deal like it almost seemed a foregone conclusion that he's gone a massive haircut that he took. I think he's gone anyway from what i've been reading They had to do this. Restructuring for alshon jeffery. But he's not he's probably going to get cut anyway but yeah. They got a lot of salary cap manipulation to do and jason kelsey their starting center is seems like he's gotta there's a good chance he retires. Descend anyway they would love it if he retired for financial. He also has negative cap savings of they let him go right if they cut they'll save four million but he's a seven million dollar dead money on the cap i mean there's a ton of examples on it. They went for it. They went for another super bowl and Injuries eight m this year and the year before that and now they're gonna pay the price okay and let's see what other news and notes. We got other than the coaching stuff. The coaching stuff. We'll get to later in the show. But matt rule did not commit to teddy bridgewater for twenty twenty one jamie and espn notes. That he had only one touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. All season bridgewater was an eight in games that they had a chance to win or tie on the last possession which is somewhat of an encouraging thing for the panthers. Because you know that's just bad luck and you should be able to turn some of those into wins but it does make you wonder who your who your quarterback of the future is. What do you make of that. I think that's right. They should commit to denver water. They should you know again. We've said this many many times the no pun intended. But he should be the bridge quarterback you know they should have somebody. That's a long-term answer teddy is a serviceable starter. But he's not a game changing starter. And so you know if you're trying to get your franchise to the next level that you don't have enough pieces around him for him to be that type of quarterback they need somebody like that and so I remember having conversations with you. Know people at the combine last year and where the panthers going to be one of the teams in the mix for justin herbert in could they made the move to go up one spot to get justin. Herbert and they decided against that. And i'm sure they're probably looking at saying. Maybe we should have been more aggressive to go. Get justin herbert. So you know. Are they going to draft a guy this year or are they going to be aggressive in may be looking at another quarterback and free agency doubt that but certainly in the draft is is a more likely scenario and we'll see what happens there but bridge probably the starter in two thousand twenty one just a matter. Of how many games will he start. If in fact they invest in a. It's a twenty million dollar dead money. Hit if they he's not gonna but i agree. No do tyrod taylor taylor situation and maybe exactly starter in place for somebody else. But it's just a matter of how aggressive they are and what falls to them with their job selection. They've got the eighth pick in the draft. And i think you you could four. We gotta mock draft on. Cbs at four quarterbacks. On the top five so i think you could certainly see four in the top eight trevor lawrence our latest mock draft. This is from josh edwards on. And it's the latest. It's christmas eve. Trevor lawrence wilson to justin fields for trae lance five and. That's a that was mocks to carolina. But that was obviously over a week ago from from houston that was a trade amok trade carolina trading up to get trae lance so with somebody that okay so those are your news and notes we are going to give you our top twelve for twenty twenty one and kind of take a look back at what we had this time of year ago when we did our top twelve for twenty twenty and one of us at amari cooper in the top twelve. Find out the the moron. The idiot more onto at amari cooper and his top twelve promotion today though facebook get on the facebook group search fantasy football today on facebook or click the link and the description in our episode description.

Just get in there with some friends and Pick some games all right last year's top twelve. You guys did pretty well. I gotta tell you. I'm gonna make sure i get it here. Here's jamie's roughly mccaffrey. Michael thomas barclay zeke cook conveyed so far. I mean i still think he did. Well mccaffrey. Thomas barclay zeke. Cook kamera hopkins adams. Julio jones nick chubb tyra derrick henry anti-wrinkle our top twelve. Dave mccaffrey barclays zeke. Cook michael thomas. five nick. Chubb six chimera seven unite both had chubb over camera. And i don't know why we did that. We both remember kamera. Did not heavy greet certainly not a consistent twenty nineteen. I think the the overall numbers were good except for touchdowns and maybe there was a little bit of concern that that was going to be him. Moving forward this was. I don't know. I don't know why we did that. But mccaffrey barclays zeke. Cook thomas chubb. Kamera crazy about nick chubb to be honest with you. Mix and jacobs henry hopkins and miles sanders. He had mccaffrey cook. Thomas zeke barkley hopkins. Julio henri camara chubb atoms tyreek hill none of us loved henry. No none of us five had maith. It's the highest. I did not have them in the top twelve. Good for me. And i was the guy who had amari cooper in the top twelve i had. Mccaffrey barclays zeke cook. Thomas chubb kamera hopkins. Julio miles sanders. Tyreek hill. Amari cooper and i just looked first. Four games of the season amari cooper was the number one wide receiver in fantasy of course by the end of the process. I had no interest in amari cooper. And i had a fourth round pick but that doesn't matter right now. I mean we also did this before c. Land was on the thing. Yeah totally all right. So let's get to our twenty twenty one top twelve's we'll go six at a time. Dave you can go first okay. My top twelve guests. Whose i for me in my top. Twelve alvin kamara christian mccaffrey. Otherwise young way coop christian mccaffrey's number one dalvin cook. I have second album chimera third saquon fourth derrick henry fifth jonathan taylor sixth okay so six running backs. Yeah i already. Don't let the order to be honest with you. It's what i sent in last week. And i'm going to sit on it for a while and see just how much i'd want to change it around. But i know. I know that like mccaffrey at one and the reason why i've cook it to. I know people are going to be nervous draft because the injuries but hasn't he kind of earned some some some props over the last two seasons staying healthy for most of the year being productive. I think the vikings defense will be better next year. Sorry i'm not ready to run away from dalvin cook and certainly not use the injuries as an excuse to pass on them. Okay so you have a cafe cook chimera three barkley for yeah the. Let's go with that for today. Okay and then henry. I mean i already feel like like a change is coming at three. So what jonathan. Taylor all right. Let's dave's top six jamie your top six different only one. That's probably the the biggest differences demont adams's four for me so the same top three If breeze comes back tomorrow will be to overcook But the concern of or. I guess the quarterback situation if it stays hill than than kamara will be three three at the highest But mccaffrey cook. Kamara davante adams for henry. Five barkley sex in i. I may move taylor arguments myself. Yep that's the easiest. One i think for me to make that switch is that saquon backed back. Years were health's been an issue. We don't know what the giants are really going to look like next year. The two games that he did play this year. How good was he. not that. Great taylor finish the year strong. We know what he's going to be in this offense moving forward. I think the offense could be better next year in indianapolis. So there's there's people out there who What happened at brad evans. Sent out a tweet saying well. I hope i get jonathan taylor between ten and twelve and round one and i responded to him saying he won't be there and there were. I'd say like maybe thirty five to forty percent of the responses. Like are you crazy. Why would you take him before tenth overall in round one and then there were people who liked the tweeter said. Yeah i can't wait to get my hands on the sky like he's everything you want in a fantasy running back. Save for not a candidate for eighty catches but fifty. I think you can get your fifty. And i think he's gonna score on touchdowns the two things you got to look at. Is what the quarterback situation for the colts because rivers is on a one year deal. You know about the rumors I i don't think they're going to get worse than those two guys unless you just worry about rivers. You're older falling off a cliff and the offense getting completely terrible. The other part of it is. What do they do from a backup perspective. Is it the same cast of characters or do they bring back marlon mack. And then there's a better backup guy there than jordan wilkins. Now it's not going to take at taylor out of the first round but obviously when you're nitpicking between town like barkley and what barclays showing you unhealthy derrick henry Obviously there's a lot of receiving options that you put in that group as well. You know david nar probably a little bit toward the other side of that. But when you start to factor in davante adams and tyreek hill in if you want to start to put the digs decay metcalf in those type receivers which are going to be first round caliber players in pr. That's where i think taylor. May you know lose a little bit. Dr kelsey as well. So this matter. What preferences in with the colts looked like you know. Hopefully their offensive line is a little bit better to remember. The while taylor is none down the stretch costanzo. Who's a big part of what they do is as unit up there. All right so recap david jamie go. Mccaffrey cook kamara. And chimeras ranking is pending. You know who comes back their quarterback. He's not going to be worse than three for me but he could. He could be four for me. Well he was not really catching passes. Much at all with With tesa milk's over that last game he did so. Yeah i mean i do wonder how how much of a concern that is. He was significantly more involved in the passing game with it makes sense with brees them with hell. He'll run so much. I mean that's part of it and the course running back here. He's a two hundred and five ish guy and now but okay so if tastes meals a starting quarterback how many catches is alvin. Kamara getting ib shocked. If he's under seventy. I think he could be under seventy if he's under seventy and he's at his normal running back workload is his carry workload. That's like a two hundred and eighty touch guy that not even that's like a to sixty five to seventy guy. I don't know if i'm if he's top five. Pick if that's the case. I don't like say he could lose touchdowns to hill inside the three yard line. Yeah well i guess. I guess you don't feel that way but i don't know how i feel about it. Well i mean. I say losing touchdowns. He scored three touchdowns in the four games. That tastes mill started. So i don't know if that's necessarily concern. How many touch. On sid hill have in those games rushing. Yeah at least four okay. So those are four touchdown set. Did not go to right. But i mean you're also saying like you know he didn't. He didn't throw a touchdown. He didn't throw touchdowns into those games. Where breeze would throw touchdowns in those games. So i mean you know just taking touch now. It's moving them around. Possibly to compare though exactly. I think it's the catch is though that concern me. Because he's so. I mean he gets you like what was it nine yards per catch. Every time he catches the ball could be a first down another fantasy point for the catch and the yards. Almost so it's a lot of production. Yeah i don't know it's going to be an interesting. It's going to be an interesting case. I hope we don't have to make that decision. 'cause he's so damn good with drew. Brees all right mccaffrey. Kamera barclay four for dave adams for for jamie derrick henry. Five for both of you. Jamie's got barkley. Six davis jonathan taylor. Six all right. Let's get seven through twelve dave. Go ahead that. This is where receivers come into play for me. And i don't want to be held to any of this long term. This is just how. I ranked it a week ago. Adams is going to be seven tyreek. Hill eight zeke is nine travis. Kelsey ten i put james robinson at eleven and i don't feel so good about that one and i've got nick chubb at twelve okay. So davante adams tyreek. Hill zeke kelsey james robinson. Nick chubb interesting back into the round for sure. Jamie after mccaffrey cook kamera adams henry barclay. You got seven through twelve taylor galaxy austin. Ekeler ezekiel elliott tyreek hill. Nick so nick chubb top twelve for you guys and how many catches didn't have this year. You feel good about that. Yeah i mean. As long as the fancies their this offense aligns amazing and sixteen caches and twelve. I think the three running backs that you're going to look at it and say they make me a little nervous p. r. derrick henry. But you see now what he's been two years. It's hard to say he's gonna be barring injury be dramatically worse. Unless there's complete follow nick chubb and jk dobbins you know what i think. All three of those guys are very similar. Profiles the only difference dobbins is is that he doesn't get the same type of work that those other guys get so if in that's why he's not in the same caliber or category. I mean nick. Chubb scored seven touchdowns in his last six games. Used in the catalyst of what this offense offenses. He's an amazing talent in the play. Caller is is Is pretty consistent with how he likes to run the ball so You know you saw what he was to start the season. You certainly saw what he was to close the season. And i don't think kareem hunt is somebody you should see her in terms of drafting and banking on nick. Chubb playing at this level chubb averaged fifteen point one. Pr points per game in. Twenty nineteen was a better or worse than that in two thousand twenty. What do you think he was worse. Game dave because that's stupid game where he got her against dallas. Are you taking that out. everything counts. I'll say worse point and a half better sixteen point six. He still good man. Is that so you guys have zeke ahead of him. Both of you. Yeah you seen. What zeke was. When doc was healthy. I think got bank on the the thing is you know that. Run that touchdown run. That trump had in week. Seventeen was a forty eight yards. Something like that. he can't do that. I just. He hasn't done that in a time. I don't know if he's had a run that long and in his last two years and matters catch us so many passes. When he's we'll compare to chubb so i get i get it. But that's that's what people are going to be concerned about with zeke. I think they're gonna feel like we've got a player. That's on the decline here. Well that's why he's gone from a top three. Pick to back into the first round pick. You know you're still talking about a guy. It's going to get a very hefty workload. The hope would be you get tyron smith back. Get zack martin. Back get dot prescott back get you know an off season arrest you know. I think it's important for him now. Is he somebody in dynasty that i want to invest in new. Somebody wanna flip and see if you can get great value in return for but at least for me when it comes down to zeke and job to running backs that i have at the end of the first round. It's you know how to those guys compared to the next group of guys you know the You know the other sophomore running backs that have the chance to be special in terms of dobbins and It will not necessarily sophomore guys but dobbins and jacobs and mixing you know hopefully bouncing back especially if they draft soul and get you know a upgrade on the offensive line and the andre swift and antonio gibson all those guys that have a chance to be really special does he. Does he compare that much more favorably than robinson as well you know. So it's It's just a matter of how much still counting on zeke and and you're right out and people are going to be concerned understandably so go. Elliot had three carries this year of twenty or more yards. Nick chubb had twelve yet. Twelve in one. Hundred and ninety attempts zeke had two hundred and forty four. I mean this is less about zeke. And more about nick chubb. His explosiveness is is remarkable. That is a shocking number. Two cats count. No no yeah. I get it i just say. I'm just saying nick nick. Chubb is amazing at football is basically what i'm so. Yeah and that's part of the allure. That's why people are gonna maybe reach a little bit. Maybe we're reaching a little bit. Put him in the back end of round one because he's such an awesome running back. He's fun to watch. We know he's going to get a lot of work and he's got a nice track record of good production in pr. That can make you feel okay. Taking him with that late first round pick. So what did i say. He had sixteen point six p. Pr points per game this year. Jutted juno with zeke had both this year and in his first five games with dak prescott you guys take steps to twenty. He was at twenty one point. Eight with dak and on the year fourteen point one so obviously he fell off a cliff in. it's not just ackley offensive line to he gave evidence. What's up jen. it's only two games with dalton. They threw the ball. That's the big part of it. That's definitely part of it. But i did think that he left enough for us to see in week. Sixteen seventeen to know that. He's not like a total shell of his former self and that there is a chance of him bouncing back. I don't think he's quite at the age where we can just rule out him ever being what he wants was but he needs that opportunity and now twenty pollard could be a big part of that mix next year and we'll see what the offensive line looks like for now. I'm comfortable taking him with a late first round pick zico elliott had almost no chance in week seventeen. His offensive line was completely overwhelmed and he actually did very well with the opportunities he was given. I mean you'd like one of those lost one yard. Turn it into a two yard gain. He did that a lot in week. Seventeen he he did look probably touches in that game too. Yeah i don't. I don't know i remember what the stats better. It was fourteen for forty two and a touchdown three catches for nineteen yards on. Fourteen looked better. Than the dalton. He had four targets in each of those game seven catches so if that's the floor in terms of what the reception totals could be because we saw at the ceiling was with back. I mean those first five games. He was in three of them. I'll throw out week five. When when when i heard against the giants but the first four games three of those. He had six cats as each of those games. Yeah all right so let me just recap the top twelve oaks here jamie. Who'd you have an eleventh between zekan chubb. Okay the differences for you guys. Dave has james robinson. Eleventh jaime does not have in the top twelve. Jamie has austin ekeler ninth. Dave does not have him in the top twelve. Let's start there. okay okay. So let's start with that ekeler ninth for jamie thirteenth for dave. Then we'll talk about james robinson and then we'll talk about travis kelsey and where he should be ranked but jamie ekeler basically if you'd he played eight eight games that he didn't leave with an injury. And if you take those eight games and you double. It's one thousand seven hundred sixty seven hundred and thirty six total yards ninety four catches but only four touchdowns but your thoughts on. I mean chris on the show today but he's mega high on that he has them in the top five and pr basically once. I got past the month to adams. I thought about maybe kelsey at five. I thought about tailored five. I thought about you know henry. They're still barkley and equa. You know and i think he just look at what he's His upside is with hopefully a improve playcaller. you'll see what they do to replace anthony. Lynn genuine offensive staff. But he was he was amazing in twenty nineteen. He was great when he was on the field and twenty. Twenty and herbert has the chance to be an absolute monster. And so i just love this way. That the way this offense is gonna come into play so I think. Chris has certainly onto something there. If he stays healthy he could be Easier two thousand total yard guy and you know. Obviously he's got eighty catch potentials twenty nineteen dave not not quite in your top twelve th thirteenth director. And james james rob james robinson. You have him ahead of ekeler. Olympic with james robinson yet. Almost robinson is a separate story. And i don't even comfortable. I am having him there. I'm really not but ekeler. Eighteen point three points per game in two thousand nineteen sell the around fifteen. Pr points per game. In twenty twenty one rushing touchdown on the year. And i'm nervous about him being able to be back in a in a workhorse role where he's getting. I think he can get six plus catches a week and that's what will save. Npr but are the carries is going to be there. Form is joshua kelley going to get better in his second season. What's is this now. A justin herbert joint in la. I think it is which means there won't be a lot of games where they're gonna feed austin ekeler a ton of carey's. I'm a little skeptical. That he can be first round good. I think he can be second round. Good in a pr league in dhabi pr league. He might be like middle to late. Second round good so. I'm not ready to take early as As i i hope they don't pull him at the goal line. He had two carries inside the five yard line. All season long that was ten percent of the chargers carries from inside the five Also the chargers ran the most plays in the nfl. So keep that in mind when they make their coaching change. What kind of offense will they have next year. James robinson dave you saw you saw fit to see him to put them in the top twelve. However you do not seem super confident. We'd draft pick. I have in a mock draft that we're doing today. But if i've got a late first round pick and robinson's there. I would consider him. But i think i would almost rather hold that. He falls to me and round to and the reason. Why put them where i had him for. Now is just because. I don't know if i really loved anybody else to put ahead of him. Can he be as good in his second season. There are a ton of questions. But i just got done telling you about how i think that. Just herbert's gonna be the identity of the chargers offense moving forward you. Don't think that whoever the jaguars take in the first round of their draft is going to be the identity of their offense. If it's trevor lawrence or justin fields. That guy is absolutely going to have. The offense revolve around him. What i did like about robinson was that he. He proved that he could handle a big workload. He was way better than expected in every single way. But certainly a pass catcher and i think he can still be a reliable starter and fantasy. I just don't know if he can be quite as good and certainly first round good as as he was in two thousand twenty if you're worried about his role and then you know giving the offense of reigns to the quarterback. They drafted trevor lawrence. Basically they were last in the nfl in rush attempts. So you know. The situation can't get that much worse than it for him unless they stop throwing him because he had forty nine catches in fourteen games which was huge for his production but the again last in the nfl. In russia comes he must have had he must have had like ninety five percent of their carries. When he it was something like that. Yeah okay all right. So that's a look at our top twelve last thing. Sorry i forgot travis. Kelsey actually had him sixth. But then i thought that's probably too high because you know he had such an amazing year. I it's not. It's unlikely to happen again. The last three years. He's been this because he has been. He wasn't this good two years ago. He was close but he was. He was two point three points better per game. It's a big deal. Two point three points better this year than he was in two thousand eighteen. So let me tell you this. This year travis. Kelsey would have been the number three wide receiver in fantasy in either format two years ago. He was the number eight wide receiver in both non pr npr this year. He was in full. Pr the number six running back. Two years ago he was the number nine running back so yeah he was incredible two out of three years but i think six is too high for him. That's where i had them. And that's you guys did not have a at high you closer to ninth or so. That makes more sense. Dave had tenth jamie had him. What eighth eighth okay. So split the difference. Call ninth i. I wouldn't have a problem with is five the other thing i do. You guys realize kind of the the rate stats of davante adams. And what happened this year because his yards per catch and never been great but his catch rate skyrocketed this year. And obviously it's touchdown rate's ridiculous but we haven't had had. When was the last time we had a repeat number one wide receiver antonio brown and every year. We have a new discussion about who the best wide receiver in football is. We're gonna make a mistake. Overdraft devante atoms. I don't think so because you know you saw what he was. Basically from the philadelphia game on last year the game we heard so you know so just looking at what. He wasn't as offense and atom. I blame myself but a hatred for talking to me out of what i asked you in the preseason. Talk you out of it. You did talked about putting adams ahead of michael. Yes yeah. I mean i. I love down since he came to the. Nfl me you love me syndicate the nfl But i i think you look at what. He isn't as offense unless they completely overhauled their second and third receiver. Bring back the same group. He's gonna get fed targets and targets anyway but just to the what level. But he's he's amazing and aaron rodgers has proven over the course of his career. You know from jordy nelson randall. Cobb and and an adams when he has a guy he leans guy. And this guy this guy since two thousand sixteen. I mean you. You look at the touchdowns that he's had two thousand sixteen twelve. It's doubled twelve daily seventeen five and then the one year he didn't have only played twelve games. He had five touchdowns in those twelve games. I think he's probably the safest pick you can make in round one. Yeah well you know probably about it. He is the safest becky can make in round one. Mccaffrey really yes. Last year i had out two years ago. I get it. But even when the seasons ago he was two thousand and twenty twenty played. Moore's his touchdown touchdown. We're surprised were down. But he was okay so it almost twelve games. Yeah the cat. Mccaffrey was per game number number one with a bullet this year. Yeah but if you're scared about him getting hurt again scare. Who's more likely to get hurt the pick so you shouldn't be scared. Of course everybody's got he's got the most upset. I don't think that davante adams can do what christian mccaffrey can do. Well anyway. that can do a christian. Mccaffrey could potentially do devante atoms. He's missed some time over the last few years seasons but six per sixteen games. He's been on pace for one hundred and sixty nine or more targets every single year. So that's that's pretty good. They accomplished something this year. That only two other receivers have done in randy. Moss and chris carter lee one hundred catches whatever yards. He hadn't touched him eighteen touchdowns. Okay all right so that we're gonna take a break here and when we come back. We'll talk about the coaching changes.

You're a hot young head coach. Everybody wants to hire you where you going. You can choose. Choose your own destination dave. I'll let you answer i. Today jamie was between the chargers and the jaguars. Where would you go. Jaguars have two first round. Picks right including the number one overall pick and i think they've got a ton of cap space and i think they've got a lot of good young talent on defense. I think i'd rather go to jacksonville than l. a. Plus the ownership is better. I think i think the ownership is better jacksonville than la Hearing shot khan say that he's got control of the roster was a little stunning oko. Pete and i've talked about the people's talked about this a lot over the last several weeks. If you right now this was. This was pretty much new. After jacksonville walked up the number one seat. Who would you rather have right now. Justin herbert trevor traveler. Trevor lawrence But we both said. We'd take justin herbert seen him go through. Nfl season and you see what he can be. And so while. Trevor lawrence may better. He could also be a flop and so at least you see what. Herbert has become the reason. The chargers job better is. There's a better chance to win right away. I think you look at if those guys stay healthy. They're going to be very competitive. You get there when. James joey bosa. Melvin ingram those guys on the defensive side. that's a win now defense Especially chris harrison. In casey hayward's they'll play at the level that they have the ability to and then you have the quarterback that's already gone through it once already with those weapons around him so Term jackson might be better like you said it's one for me but i think you know given the chance that i could win right now. I would take the charter job. This is a great question. I'm i'm twitter pulling it if you're running. An nfl franchise would rather have it quarterback trevor lawrence justin herbert as a great question. I'm not sure. Justin fields doesn't belong in this poll. Oh my gosh. The roller coaster roller coaster with him. That doesn't belong in this bowl about that. Well i think you're right but what he did against clemson was remarkable. An event is not the same type of defense that it has been the way they were defense day. We're not seeing a lot of players are missing a quarterback. He looked at one guy who threw them. I think a lot of quarterbacks like that in college ver he's obviously great. I didn't think much of him. But there's still people that are like wilson ahead of fields. So it's not a guarantee that field zinc quarterback dr so far just in herbert has seventy eight percent of the vote. We shall see what happens there. All right it's talking about all these vacancies here. Who the dave some fantasy some. Nfl players who have a lot at stake with a new head coach new regime. Who are you focusing on. We've got the jets. We got the chargers. The jaguars the falcons the texans the lions and minnesota gary kubiak is retiring their offense coordinator. They had a really really good offense. And i would love to get a breakdown of their plays. I like. how many plays they ran. I games compared to last eight games. Because listen to this for minnesota kirk cousins in his first game see through twenty six passes per game in his last eight games. He threw more than thirty eight passes per game and dalvin cook carries went up in that stretch. So i don't do. They just run like a ton more plays the did they give more points. Really able almost the same amount of points per game. So minnesota was that stretch to which i think is why cook okay. Yeah i didn't have a chance to really go through carries per game but that that could be part and that's probably a big part of it is they were. They weren't taking off the field. Whatever small percentage they were prior to win. Madison was home but obviously madison. Miss all of those games so yeah it's worth looking into because pass attempts skyrocketed and he was really good down the stretch. Anyway dave who are some players right now that you have. There's a lot at stake with whomever they hire there. Some on every single team. That has that has coaching vacancy in minnesota. I want them to hire somebody who's aggressive and will want to put the ball in the air a lot so that justin jefferson can repeat what he did as a rookie. But mike zimmer is gonna have his way. I mean we. We've already seen night. He's gone through three offensive coordinators over the last couple of years. And each one like zimmer wants done his way more often than not. Now maybe zimmer realized at the midway point of this season we've got this special talent and justin jefferson and we've got a just we gotta let go or he realized we score points because my defense is very good. I i would imagine the zimmer is going to be able to restock that defense it makes me a little bit nervous about the offense being as aggressive with the bass and if they have a conservative playcaller in minnesota that'll limit target opportunities for all the bass catchers minnesota and. We're gonna talk about all of them. It's feeling on top of jefferson served. Smith i don't think how rudolph is going to be back there and It's it it might not be quite a slam dunk as it was to finish. Twenty twenty lingo t by team after that after minnesota if you want i mean it's we can an might not be the most exciting conversation by the way. Dave is mock draft smoking get on. Cbs pick fourteen minnesota. I don't know if they still have the fourteenth pick. This was done a a week ago greg. They've made any trades in the last week. No but they might have changed their draft. Oh sure sure. Sure that's the fourteenth gregory russo edge. Rusher miami hurricanes of domo certainly gonna go defense. You'd think they need pass rush up so badly this team todd firm and he does a great job i on on. Cbs sports hp one of the best handicappers in the business. He said this is the team. He's putting his money on to win the nfc north because the odds will be great. Obviously packers gonna be favorite but this game that he is putting his backing band. And i'm i'm totally on board with. They beat the packers ozzy. Injuries complain if aaron rodgers gets hurt but the offense looks to be in great shape The defense is not just what they're doing the draft they get. Neil hunter back the secondary if you remember adam before they traded in gakugei. I said this was the defense i thought was going to be the the one going into the playoffs. That would be better because we thought hunter was coming back and geico's there. I remember we had the conversation early in the season. And then you'll hunter hunter you know oppose placed on on i are for the year and they traded but I think there's lots of like. About what. Defense can become with. Zimmer controlling it in and the offense looks to be really good. You know it's like we just posted top twelve quarterbacks for twenty twenty one and nobody's gonna draft kirk cousins as a number of quarterback. I get but i don't see much difference between him and ryan tannehill. To be honest. Tannehill lobster will run a little. Bit more. The weapons around kirk cousins especially. You're seeing what irv smith can become and he's going to be a bigger part of the offense at at that position. The playcaller i think is going to be really important for minnesota. Because they have the running game to have the receivers have. I think what could be a good tight. End and of cousins can avoid the mistakes which he did for the most part this year really for the last two years. He could be sneaky number one fancy quarterback that you just wait for and you'll be thrilled about okay. What about dj charq. It's hard to get a grip on this guy. He's got he's had a bad situation. Obviously he has a lot of invisible games. And last your to just very up and down inconsistent. trevor lawrence. Is there jamie. You gotta figure is tj shark top sixty. Pick the first five rounds of a twelve team league. No but you're gonna love getting him just after that. What kind of coach do you want to see for them. Who do you have an inkling of who it might be. Got all the candidates. I you're you're you're seeing they're gonna talk all the guys i don't love urban meyer going there. 'cause i just don't think he's going to be fully vested in that program around. I think he's more of a if he's going to the nfl if he's going to win now situation even though. You're getting trevor lawrence. But i do think that you're hoping to see guy you know be enemy obviously is going to be one. That's the hot name. I i like the idea of a team bringing in robert sala because i do think that bringing in la flora's younger brother as offense coordinator who's on the offensive staff and the forty niners. I think that could be fun. Just seeing what. The floor has done With his influence in san francisco and and obviously what his brother's done in green bay. So i'm curious how that will work out but I think it's going to be something that's got to be. Not just the head coach. But obviously the the playcallers be creative But you know. I'll always lean toward lean on pete for the jaguars because he's so tied into the organization and he thinks they need to get a guy at receiver so he said he likes their three top guys right now of chart labus and johnson. But he doesn't think any of those guys run well chuck profiles as number one receiver. But i don't know if he's a dominant number one receiver. He's the guy that's not going to necessarily beat you with his speed per se. But he's gonna win fifty fifty balls. He's fast enough to get by the defender But he's not necessarily like Like he thinks to draft tony from florida or this kid out of purdue. Yeah that's the one. Keep saying those are the two guys that he dax vilmos. I look at the texans as a team. That just like needs to unleash to shawn watson they kinda did they. Were thirty. I in the nfl in rush attempts but they were left. Dead lasts in plays. The texans ran the fewest plays. And and you know. I don't know i don't think they did shawn watson. A ton of favors played kind a very conservative offense under bill. O'brien dave what would you like to see in houston under defense for starters. So that way they don't try and use their offense to mass their defense. That might be part of the reason why they had a slow base so they didn't have to put their defense out on the but it was every year and it wasn't always a bad defense. That's true that's your but the last two years especially it wasn't great. And then once o'brien got fired. I don't know what the pace was. Maybe it wasn't that much different. They let let watson throw early. That was a big part of it. That that's huge. And i just want him to still be the cl- he and he's going to be the centerpiece of the offense. They need to find a a playcaller. That's going to say okay to sean. What do you want to do. that's great. Let's let's do that with a little bit of this. And that and this and that and just build everything around shawn watson and it makes perfect sense. They're going to do exactly that. I hope they keep willfuller because the the chemistry that's built in between those two When they're on the field together pretty special. So that's gonna be another decision that the franchise is going to have to make and it won't be an easy one. I don't know what their caps situation is like but assuming that they don't have a ton of cap space they need to rebuild that defense and giving a lot of money to will fuller dirt some a little bit too. I think everything. You're you're seeing from being reported from. Houston he's going back. There is because of the suspension and what he was able to accomplish. Avs anybody say that he's leaving but obviously that could change of somebody does a lot of money. I don't know if anybody's going to do that. Is there any salvaging terrible and cap space. Actually the player on the jets. The any salvaging the players on the jets. Of course this line is you can build around. They have some nice receivers. They're obviously what you get from crowder as a slot option. If mims can take that next step you know. We'll see what they do with perryman. Their receiver away from being a good receiving core. You have the intangible that there's no more adding engaged so all those guys just magically get. Because he's seen that with everybody leaves jets. Yes actually report. Now adam Frank or according to adam schefter wants to play another season. I don't know where that is because now gays out of the nfl. Maybe he goes played alabama if gaze follows the report that he's the oscar there on off his eligibility but I think you look at what What the foundation is there and it depends on what they do. Did they make the decision to stick with. Sam darnold and go a different direction or do they go get a quarterback. Now i'm sure a lot of fans A fresh start in a quarterback. But donald still i think has the potential to be good enough that this offense can have a lot of production out of it if they get the right coach in place any other. Coaching thoughts are gonna read some email. I'll go back to what i said on the other show that i think the two in my opinion too big impact hires are gonna be in atlanta and detroit because they're still great offenses there you know so i'd like to see somebody come in. That can get more out of the offense in atlanta Not it's been bad for fantasy. But you can still salvage another season or two outta matt ryan and hopefully julio jones but obviously keep calvin ridley afloat and maybe running game. They're accessible because it offense can be great and the same thing and you know we're two years removed from matthew stafford being a top five fantasy quarterback on a point per game basis before the back and he's showed flashes this year when he was healthy. You get kenny. Golladay back hopefully See what they do to replace. Marvin jones if he leaves yup tj hopkinson and the andrea swift. There's a lot of fantasy options on those two teams. So there's good play calling in place there. that's going to be really fun for fantasy miniatures. Especially those two quarterbacks because nobody's draft as starters but these are the type of guys helped you win leagues that don't draft them. I wait for them. I take them as as late round picks and then all of a sudden you you may have the The matthew stafford from two years ago or the matt ryan from his mvp season or even Flashes this season or certainly what aaron rodgers showed you know when we all wrote him off for a thirty seven year old quarterback. They're complaining more and he was an. Mvp matt ryan finishes qb twelve. This year and there are some ups and downs. There's obviously a lot better with julio jones but the thing is you always knew they were going to throw the ball right. I mean they with cutter. They were forced in pass attempts this year. So hopefully they They hire someone who will commit to that. Let's see if they can get the trivia question. I asked yesterday. Can you name the top. Six quarterbacks dave in yards per game taking out dak prescott because he did not qualify. Okay ryan should be up there. That's obviously what we're talking about you Mahomes should be up there. Just in herbert derek carr brady rodgers. No not rogers left to you. Have brady herbert ryan. And you said mahomed assumes they have four four darnold. No no sam darnold shawn watson. You're looking at a list of teams watson's got to be up there. And then josh allen young as you look down and all of a sudden you gotta sorta got. It's a list of players. It's not that if you're watching on youtube you saw that whole thing. I swear. I can't believe he was i who led the nfl passing most yards. I know the answer. I won't answer wotton. Yeah good good job. Did you see my eyes. I was looking at that monitor. Their weight did that work. I tried to hit the. Where's sound tried to give you the wrong buzzer. But you're right. I was just assuming we're going to get it wrong. I hit the wrong banks. But i had Seventh guy can you get the guy in terms of passing yards per game. Was a car. Note is going to be one of my favorite breakout candidates mixture. Golf was a golf borough. That's right yeah. I mean you know the answering. That's what we talked about. How he's gonna be an awesome. Okay guys let's read some emails. Fantasy football cbsdfwcom from the emails from kevin from dave's favorite ski town. I don't have a favorite ski town. Breckenridge fine deer trail mass colorado. I've been there trae. John mike and page. I dunno. sounds like fish team standard league. I'll probably get seventh eighth or ninth pick would love your opinion on my keepers here. I don't know how many he needs to keep mccaffrey. In round one adams. Around to jacobson round three acres and around six james robinson. Around seven and josh allen and round twelve ten team standard scoring And we don't know how many favorite to mccaffrey round one. Atoms to jacobson third acres. Six rabah james robinson. The seventh josh allen in the twelfth. I'd bounce around the room. And say i'll take mccaffrey and allen. Yeah i would go. I would rank them adams in round two alan. What was it twelve allen around twelve of jamie. It's standard scoring just so you know. Is that change anything. No because he's got the seventh pick. I'm taking mccaffrey. yeah yeah the change. Things i still go out and one mccaffrey okay from seamus a city. One hour south of the twin cities. That's like going to be right on the border with iowa. Right sure okay. I don't know how did aj dylan not get at least one mention as a one week wonder straight call It is sorry. It's too late to put them in the poll. He didn't help people though he was a great one. Word who started. Aj dylan in week. Sixteen answer nobody. And then you could even put him on. Dylan you can put them in. The worst waiver wire pickups list From carl subjects car. No it's eric anyway. From call to see you right. I can't believe people still do snake drafts. If you've been in a league for three or more years and you're over sixteen you should be doing an auction salary cap salary cap. A salary cabinets right. Okay i agree. I love salary cap dress. I like snake grabs quite a bit too. you know. they're not they're not bad. I like the. I wanna be fifteen in fun. Okay i want to be twenty one again from tyler wit dear tony hobbs tigger and shere khan eight. No i was right about fish by the way. Are they all tigers. Okay i was just thinking the tigger song this after this morning actually had their now the balancing policy. Okay a few names unmentioned from the awards list. I nominate them as unsung heroes. I don't remember that being an award. Okay robert tanya and logan thomas. jd mckissic young way coup jason sanders rodrigo blankenship q. Heath sai they deserve some credit credit in one category or another They definitely helped our fantasy. Sisters and brothers have a great twenty twenty one and to the tune of snoop dogg mock draft every day. Yeah all right. We probably will be doing that. tanya logan thomas mckissick yes. I think those are pretty good. Waiver wire pickups yeah tanya how we forget him top five titan because he just wasn't really that good like it was such a bad year. You know what. I wanna see okay. He scores he scored one hundred twenty four in non. Pbr finished with this robertson. Scored in non-pwi are one hundred and twenty four point six points that made him titan three last year that would have made him tied-in six in as probably even worse than full pr right. He scored a hundred and seventy six points. That made him tied three last year he would have been no hit the wrong button last year. He would have been tight end seven so you know.

624. 10 Takeaways from Week 14

NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

40:21 min | 11 months ago

624. 10 Takeaways from Week 14

"And now move the sticks ten takeaways from week fourteen with daniel jeremiah. Bucky brooks and read. Louis what's up everybody. Welcome to move. The sticks of is axes. Dj bucky rhett back with you here for the takeaway podcasts slash video show. What's going on boys is oh good. Dj i love this year. Because then we begin to see the big team start flexing their muscle. The physicality shows up in the game. And you can separate the contenders from the pretenders each and every week. Well this is one of those game one of those weeks where we actually saw a lot of blow outs. We didn't see a ton of close games down to the wire finishes but we did see. Was the playoff picture. Really coming into view of two new number one seeds each conference. We've seen some teams fall out in then push back in to the bottom of the playoff picture with the three wild card spots in each conference. It's really starting to heat up. And that's what we're here fourth. Yeah we're seeing some team surging in the last quarter. We're seeing some team slipping. Which i think is going to get as beautifully to the first takeaway here and that was the sunday night game. And that's where the bills beat up on. Ben second in five at the forty seven rothlisburger takes shotgun. Snap throw it fires. It has picked up interceptor by terry johnson amid the right side to score he's gonna score touchdown buffalo tax down here. In jackson. the bills touchdown from jared jackson. Yeah look that was a huge play in the game. They were down seven three at that time they take the lead and they would never look back in guys going back and looking at the video this one. The steelers were one to ten on down. So i went back and watched all those third downs till you what they did man. They weren't a lot of man coverage and they beat up. Those wide receivers did not that that offense getting any type of rhythm and these were in third and twenty they. All those third downs were were under ten yards so they were convertible third downs and they just challenged them. At the line of scrimmage on a couple of times they put claypool on his back so to me they got no rhythm they had absolutely nothing going. And i thought clearly when you watch that that tape the buffalo bills or the more physical team. Not something you see often. When you're watching the pittsburgh steelers play degen would be a little more spicier language when it comes to the steelers offense. They're soft they're just a very soft office a team and you just don't typically hear soft synonymous with the pittsburgh steelers but i think it's telling and has been telling over the last month. The pittsburgh steelers can run the ball and gotta have situations meaning short yardage golan four minute office. They cannot run the ball. And when you can't run the ball you're having to rely on all of these intricate passing routes i think speaks volumes about the identity of your ball club and ben rothlisberger has in the past that it didn't matter whether they ran it or not. He changed his tune. After last night's game and i think it's apparent the pittsburgh steelers cannot continue to throw the ball because they don't have a legitimate deep threat and their quarterback doesn't have the ability to make throws down to fill accurately so they play in a phone booth and they're just not good enough to play that way. Yeah under seventy five rushing yards bucky for the sixth time in their last seven games. Averaging under ninety yards game knows Has ever been this ineffective in the run game It just it feels like james conner. Just doesn't have any juice back. There doesn't feel there's much room for him to get anything done either. I know that we've seen some jalen samuels. We've seen anthony mcfarland. We've seen some of the. Benny snell has just nothing is done. The trick for the steelers run game The foreign that's a real problem. I think for this team in particular in the the offense is a whole feels a little bit less imaginative little less creative than we saw earlier in the season with creative ways to get chase claypool the ball. We saw robbery mcleod. Getting in on the action is just haven't seen any of that come together feel stagnant for the steelers offense in for buffalo man. I mean it was bad early on offense. Josh allen could not by a completion. Nfl the steelers rush wasn't necessarily getting home at the only ended up sacking him once it was affecting the past game from the bill and then boy did they turn it around in the half and i gotta say dj. You mentioned the defense that picks six tear johnson. The first half was a game changer because buffalo came out in the second. Half josh allen was perfect in the third quarter did not throw an incompletion. And then we saw stefan digs kinda start to take over some of that quick passing game. Get the ball to allen hands quickly to defeat that rush and they really started to figure things out digs will run after the catch abilities. Verse receiver in the nfl. This year. To one hundred receptions and guys tell me. If i'm wrong here but in the end buffalo feels like hands down more a contender in the afc. Steelers at this point. While i'll just concluded with this went when we watched that game earlier this season with buffalo when they play against kansas city member they just played coverage they play coverage the whole game. They backed out of the box. And the chiefs ran the ball down their throats. I think now you're starting to see the confidence. They have in the secondary. So i'm looking forward to a rematch. There to see if they might try to challenge the chiefs a little bit. Hey you're gonna get beat. You're going to give up some place here there but challenge. I like that With with the second or they have a really good group. All right buck let's Let's stay on that subject there. Kim city chiefs chiefs glow pass net hawk native punched away left footed punt taken by hardman. First time he's gonna return today and he's got an edge at the forty five hundred forty five to get your reporting pass. The sheriff is taking taken to the end zone. Truckstop put return for a touchdown. The i did the therere to go with. This kickoff returns for touchdowns the the kansas city chiefs remind me so much of the golden state warriors a few years ago crazy because this was may maybe the worst started seeing homes have in his nfl career. He's taking thirty are sacks. he's turning the ball over. There's given the ball to the miami. Dolphins offers are up ten. Nothing and before you know it. They have thirty straight points that they put up on the board. It is like watching steph. Curry and klay thompson knocked down three. After three after three with their big playability and i think discouraging and demoralizing to be a team. Yes the miami dolphins closed and kind of got back into the game late with the fourth quarter flurry but the kids are city. Chiefs just had this ability to make a run. That can completely blow you out the water. And i don't know how you prepare for it because it is unbelievable how they can put points on the board in so many different ways know they are calm amidst the chaos and it was chaos early on in that first quarter for patrick mahomes in this offense you had the tip pass. That was byron jones first interception by the way since two thousand seventeen which i found kind of strange and hard to believe the contract. He got for miami. He got it and so there. Yeah that was the one interception and then you had them homes kind of like feeling you know his ability interception moving drifting trying to throw back to his right over. She's clyde edwards helaire. The thirty yard sack again. It's just it's one of those ill-advised things but you see mahomes. Make the play before. So i get why he was trying to do it right. It just seemed like the doors are opening here for the dolphins to figure this out. But there's still so much time left there still so many ways that the chiefs can find the answers to come. You had tyreek hill. The run game. Right thirty two yard run for a touchdown not to mention his explosive. Play in the past game. That winfrey's score you give them equal hartman punt return you get christiane safety when the chips are down for kansas city early like their buyback is better than any team in. La five guys with catches twenty five plus yards in this game. So i mean you talk about dynamic and explosive. And that's why i'm looking forward to seeing you know some of these rematch with these with the chiefs because it's got a darned if you do darned if you don't wanna play kind of soft approach on in the back keep everything in front of you and force them to finish drives. Well we've seen that not be successful and we see teams go up there and challenge them and you see what happens in this game. You get beat over the top. So it's just it's an impossible offense to defend for four quarters. You know for a half. Maybe even three quarters on some days but eventually they're going to explode and that's what happened in this game against miami. All right keeps going here. What's number. Three leg hurts so good right there. He's black he's football and is caught touchdown type stove. And he gets it. Over to alshon jeffery a great. Throw by jalen hurts. He gets hit after the throw. Put alshon jeffery on the back shoulder. Fay makes adjustment. He showed courage achieve on their michael. Go ahead a lot of our shaw. Jeffrey who turned around at the goal line can catch it back down all right. That was a terrible intro ear but it was coming with bad. I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty pretty pretty bad all right but the now we've done is we set the barlow because jalen hurts. His performance was fantastic right exceeding all expectations. In the first half specifically they went for over three hundred total yards in the first half against the number one defense in football they got mild standards go and even if it was for only one play. Eighty two yard touchdown fourteen first downs over three hundred total yards in the first half. They get the infamous spark. That doug peterson. talking about. the everybody's been talking about by putting jalen hurts into the lineup. I it was palpable in that first. Half for sure. The defense did their part in the first at four punts. Pick a missed field goal for the saints for the first time in some fifty five games the saints allowed a one hundred yard rusher. It was a quarter jalen hurts over. One hundred in two hundred yard rushers because miles sanders got over one hundred a as well so i thought a defense coming with that sack fumble in the second half of tasted hill and then hurts in the offense turning that into points was big to kind of get the final margin of fulfill leat. Did he do enough to get the start next week clearly. Yes doug peterson has come out and said he will start week. Fifteen for the eagles hasn't done enough now to make the eagles reconsider carson wentz future. I don't know if we're there yet. I think this is interesting to watch. And i believe it's interesting because jalen hurts being asserted to the starting lineup not only gave the philadelphia eagles sport but i think he gave the office of coaches and opportunity to hit the reset button on the composition of this office. The office that up against the new orleans saints was unlike what we've seen previously because they were committed to the running game. They use design quarterback runs. They ransom read option. Stuff they did movement passes. They did simple isolated rows on the side. Nothing that was. I would say mind blowing but it certainly had a different tilt or different slant to it then they offense that we've seen we're carson wentz. Also were jalen hurts. Jalen hurts had a level of calm and composure employs. that are thank. You don't necessarily expect to see from rookie listened to the comments of his teammates. They talked to being a natural leader. How he'd been a winner. They saw him playing these big games at alabama oklahoma. And how he was built for the moment. I just think it was the perfect storm and i think he gave peterson a chance to lean into some other aspects of this team that maybe they utilize while also playing complementary football and it worked philadelphia eagles. Look we all have kids. And this is what i was thinking of in red as you get older. You're going to see more of this. But there's there's a thing in the morning that all goes through. Which is we've got to get the kids in the car. And you're you're gonna have at least one where you're like you've gotta go. Let's go we gotta go get your clothes on. Get your lunch. We gotta go. You're we gotta go. You gotta go. We gotta go to me. That's what i watched. Jalen hurts dope thing. He did best in. This game was the urgency that he played with where carson we could say. The tackle got beat. The guard got beat all these other issues. They don't have guys open but he didn't speed up clock to account for that. And i think you give jalen hurts a lot of credit in this game there was plays. We'll show it on the aftermath. Where guys are getting beat right off the snap. But he's decisive. He's taken off and running or he's getting the ball out of his hands. He just played with with a lot more urgency. I would say that what we'd seen from carson wentz. I thought that was the biggest difference in the two. Dj is funny. Because now we've talked about like the evolution of quarterback that we've seen in the last three years right where we saw lamar jackson come in. And kinda. Give the baltimore ravens. A spark and they rebuild their office. I'm not putting jalen hurts. S same category. But when i think of the taste hills i think the lamar jackson's not necessarily the calibers. But even the josh allen. I think now we have to kind of rate quarterbacks differently and we have to think about total yards so pass yours brush yards total offense of production at that position. Because i think it matters. And there's no doubt get jacked up their running game. He gave mouth sanders boost. And it's a different feel for how you have to defend him. It'd be interesting to see what happens going. Forward in terms of how teams defend this offense. Nanday seen j. earthly complete game are let's keep going here. This is a takeaway number four and let's get to the rookie chasing rookie of the year. Takes the staff at the gun. Fakes left now has to ball is now a full picked up by running ago. Forty five forty has blockers. It thought of over twenty five. Fifteen ten yard touchdown shares yard touchdown washington. He has a sack a forced fumble. And now a touchdown folks. We actually saw this in practice on. What was their turnover thursday. Which was actually friday. Montas sweat ball chaser. In for a touchdown it was apparently just a practice in warm up for this moment here there. Braxton apparently it's carrying over. That's an understatement. There when you look at what she did in this game. Making plays line of scrimmage baton balls down chasing from the backside just so active and we can look at the stats and we can find guys had impressive rookie seasons. We had jeremy chinn on the show last week. Who's been outstanding. And he's in. That conversation antoine winfield. Do some really good things. But if we're just saying the best rookie i mean. Who's the best football players chase young. And this was another example of that bucky. When you watch this game you know. Dj is funny right because we talked in the draft. He was the best prospect in the draft combination of size. Strength athleticism to production. All of that so you take him number two overall and shays young giving you exactly what you expect. Immediate impact disruptive player at this washington football team and their level of physicality stands out on tape particularly on defense. They get after it. they're physical. They're nasty and they're able to do it in. What i believe is very simple scheme. Chase young has been a difference maker and yes when we're talking about de year look beyond the stats sheet. Just turn on a tape and watch them and you feel his presence off the take. He is a dominant player in washington. Football team is going to be a tough team. Four ford because their defense can play the right way so the headline from the washington post. This morning was pretty fitting considering. What talking about here. The headline was chase young demands attention and now washington. Football team does too. And i think they got it right here and we're not box. We're not box scores scouting here on sticks. Podcast but i mean. Read the box score in this one okay. Six tackles one for a loss a sack two passes tip the scoop and score fumble recovery and two quarterback hits to go with like he just. He stopped that in every category that you could possibly imagine and even when i thought it was interesting at the very end of the game. Even when he wasn't on the field the camera was still on him. The eyeso- kept going back to chase young as as washington was trying to ice this game. I think about that. And i think the conversation has been reported that dwayne haskins had his former ohio state team with him during that month long stress almost six week stretch where he kind of went without making a huge impact on the game only had one sack in that stretch. The things doing college. Don't work here. you've got to find a way to make an impact in in different ways amid we see that in this game He was as impressive a defensive rookie performance as we've seen all year no doubt Let's keep the train rolling here. Who's next where we got me. Don't get out the so. I down to the giant thirty six five receivers mccoy back to throw pressure coming. Sacked by radicati forced the fumble. That's his fifth sack of the day waiting to see who recovered it but man assan radic has own the new york giants here today. There's the cardinals are back in the mix there back in the running for the playoff. Berth and their defense has really been steady throughout the process. I think what was great to see against new york. Giants house are ready. Being everything bad. Many of us thought that he could be when he was coming out in the draft. There's a lot of injury in fascination about him because he's so versatile he did a bunch of different things at temple. We got a chance to see that. Play out five. Six game mechanic for five of their eight sacks did a great job of putting persistent and consistent pressure on daniel jones and then cope mccoy. I just think vance. Joseph has really doubted up and made this a very aggressive defense. And it's working for the cardinals. They are teamed at the we talked about the pinkies. Where they're going to be in the playoff mix their team to be feared not necessarily because the calamari their offense because the defense is finally beginning to come together yeah some just to put the performance into perspective his five sacks a were more than twenty five teams were able to generate this week in the nfl. It was just amazing to watch that performance against this giants offense of line. That was clearly having their issues. Starting right from the get go and markets. Golden came around the quarterbacks frontside untouched to as essentially forced a turnover on the strip sack of daniel jones. You kinda got feel for what kind of day that was going to be a from the jump. I mean they started their in absolutely nothing going on offense for the giants defense all up as best as it could early but turnovers came back with the three turnovers. Daniel jones at three game stretch really wasn't turning the football over that obviously ended on sunday. Hingis three third down conversions. One hundred fifty nine total yards of offense man. I don't know how when you're playing for a division when you're playing for your playoff lives. i don't know how you turn in that type of performance other other than to say that. Maybe you're just playing above your head. The last few weeks but on the giants have now given the division lead to the washington. Football team is gonna be tough for them to make up that ground. Yeah this Nfc he's been trip to watch it changes each and every week in terms of what's going on with those teams the one thing i'll add on that with the giants as we move onto the next one here with red on six is. The giants need to incorporate the mike. Single terry strategy for skill position players this year. I want winners. You need to have some guys that can actually win one on one. They don't have enough they. Just don't they've got to find more guys that can cover because we can talk about the issues they had upfront in this game and they were plentiful across the line. But i can point to three or four of those sacks where you see. Daniel jones and colt mccoy patent. The ball patentable pattern the ball because they have nowhere to go because they don't have guys it can win so go. That's just saying the mike singletary strategy offseason for wide receiver. Go ahead what's winter. Sorry number six. The jets get the seahawks right. Rosca shotgun snap to the end zone steps away. From man touchdown seahawks. David moore loses if defender under the goal posts. Makes the catch. That play. I russell wilson who had somebody grab a hold of his foot. He shook them off and said get away. I got a touchdown to throw and he does. Well i mean. The jets have provided this kind of opportunity to teams all season. Long the seahawks who started out the season five and going into their bye week had gone under five hundred and the seven games since and fallen from the nfc west league got the opportunity to play the jets and absolutely took advantage. Russ well he got back in the kitchen in this one. We saw the four touchdowns only have the one turnover in this game. Fifth such game this season we had four touchdowns now as a career high in passing touchdowns with thirty six and a look the seattle defense guys is gonna have a hard time coming their first half of the season. It was historically bad particularly in pass coverage. But if you look at the way they've been playing the last month since week ten their top three right now and points per game allow. They've cut their averages in points per game. Allowed in total yards allowed an impasse yards allowed in half about that they were giving up thirty two points a game. They've dropped now down to just over. Sixteen same goes for passing yards allowed. They've gone from almost four hundred. A game to just under two hundred game is been an impressive turnaround for seattle on defense and something that could allow them to kind of change the narrative of the land that we've seen over the last seven weeks. The defense is going to be the liability for this team in the postseason. You ever. That's interesting that you bring that up about the defense because the more that i watched this team the more i believe that jamal adams is the x factor to their title run. Meaning he's their best pass rusher. He showed it again. He has eight and a half sacks. He's living in the box. He's doing all of the things that pekar used to do with tour. Paolo maldini was. I think he has added a dimension to this from line. This past for us that gives them a chance are still not all the way soul. Because they're kind of beaten up on candidate. I won't that's going back but it is impressive. They've cut the number down. I just need to see him do it against the team. That has a formidable office. Then i'm all in on the rush and thereby the super bowl team. I'm going to give you the last word as we wrap this up. But on the list of impressive accomplishments holding the philadelphia eagles to seventeen the new york giants twelve and the new york jets two three in order to get all those fancy statistical improvements that you pointed to. I wanna know how impressed you are with that when you're really really big into it well as i've been told time and time again by many head coach we don't control the schedule which play the teams that are put in front of us in the melons up across from us on game days. And it's our job to compete in those games and that's what the seahawks and been able to do. Now keep in mind. They also limited the cardinals to twenty one points at a time where they were playing well so they kept the rams to just twenty three points even though that was a loss. I mean like this is. This was a better. Let's just say it's been better regardless of opponent considering where they started and it was really bad at the front of the sees. This is this is how finish this up as we wrap this one up here. I just know now. I need to be a critical thinker when rhett brings things up to me and stories because what he says. I want a five k. This weekend i need to figure out if that was that. Conway's preschool. Who got out. Went up on these things all right. Let's keep it moving here as we roll along here. Looking at the raiders. A team coming off a big loss there against indianapolis colts. But i'm bringing this forward with my take away. The raiders need to run the table. Second down long for indianapolis moving it right to left. Sweep it right. Side of jonathan taylor. Youtall forty five fifty. Forty five forty sprinting. Everybody john taylor touchdown a sixty two yard rookie out of wisconsin. This walk is rush the season and now the coke fleet at twenty six hundred seventeen. Yeah that was a big run actually posted this play to sweet play design where it's in. Rpo where got to pass on the left side of the formation with with the left. Tackle taking a pass set. You've got to men option over there for philip rivers and everything else has run to the right. And the raiders just completely botched it. They completely ran with the with the pass and vacated the middle of the field and off. The racist goes jonathan taylor. But i'm not here to give you a bad news on the actually gives them encouragement. Buck and and you know raider nation they. They need encouragement every now and then. So i'm going to say you've got to home games. Coming up short week chargers this week on thursday then. They put the dolphins a team. They're jockeying for position with To get into the postseason they finish up at denver a team. That's five eight right now. So i think that if they can win those three games. I think the raiders are going to find their way into the season. So as bad as this one looked. If you're the raiders. This is one of those great examples of better. Flush this quick and get ready to play on thursday night. You gotta flush real quick wonder if he were flushed paul guenther. Their defensive coordinator was flushed. It was the eighth time that raises a given a forty plus points and the three years since jon gruden narod and so he felt like he made it change. He's handed over the place to run mary. Nellie radio is going to put the number one priority on effort. Make sure they play hard. They finished at the ball. They do a good job of tackling. And they'll probably played more solves zone and see if they can keep the ball front. And when you think about the way. The raiders want to play ball control. Physical offense bend but don't break defense. They still have a chance. We'll see how quickly mary nell they can put it together on defense. But that's what's the task at hand for the raiders. All right couple of questions for you guys here so looking now at the defensive coordinator switch in the philosophical change. Perhaps that comes with rod marinelli talking about more soft zone. Does that make it less. Does that make the the need for. Pass rush less vital. Because it's clear that the raiders have won. This is the fifth game this season. They they did not register a sack. They have just fifteen on the year. So is that is that one way to i guess. Counter the one of the weaknesses of this team. I think they're going to have to get a passer. I don't care any any scheme you wanna look at. However you want to digress. Right if you're if you're gonna play soft zone and you're gonna and you're not gonna get to the quarterback you're going to get picked apart just as if you were playing man you can't get a pass rush you're going get department you've got to find a way to generate some pressure. They just they have to do that. And they have been able to do so and the other thing is lacquer. They aren't very good at the second limb. So those guys don't play aggressive. They don't play downhill. And i'll get the bucky with one question. Here as we wrap up on the raiders. Then buck you can take your your vikings takeaway coming right out of this. But i'm watching and you've talked about it. We've talked about jamal adams. And how he's been used with the way seattle's us tend to let him rush. And i'm sitting there looking at jonathan abraham who has a lot of dna similarities there with how he plays the game. Why not let him drop down. We just saw hassan rhetoric. Who's two hundred and thirty five pounds. Have a five game. So if you've got a dynamic athlete who who has struggled a little bit in the post plane on the back end. Why not draw. Jonathan abram down there and try to use him on some games and get him role on a little bit to spice up this. Pass rush it has to be in their bag because they cannot generate a rush. Mass crosby's is the only credible threat on the line. He hasn't been able to consistently get home. And so when you're unable to rush to pass. It really doesn't matter whether you play manners on. The quarterback can have his way so some of their rodman have to do. I don't know how much you can fix and the middle of the season. But it's something that he has to figure out because the raiders are good enough to be a playoff team but their defense is really holding them back. What do you got here on the vikings here book. The vikings miss out on a big win sixty goal from the nine cousins shotgun facing a blitz makes a hand up in kirkdale on the twenty. It'll be a sack labonte. The first to get joined they went play. Action and two players were up on cousins. It's an eleven yard loss. There's nothing number eight can do about that. If you just looked at the box score you will come away thinking that the tampa bay buccaneers are ready that they found their identity and this is team to really make a super bowl run in watching a game. The minnesota vikings dominated the game and for whatever reason they weren't able to put points on the board the first quarter dalvin cook and company that over seventy rushing yards in the first quarter the ten bay buccaneers head. Had no answer for this running game but what happened every time you play the style. The vikings are playing. You have to be able to cash in at least with field goals dan. Bailey missed three field goals and extra point cost them ten point and when you look at a differential the ten points not only would it changed the game but it would change the way the tampa buccaneers head to play. It's disappointing and heartbreaking loss for team. Did i believe they probably walk into the building today. Say we played debbie buccaneers. But we didn't get reward for team playoff aspirations. This is the wrong team to have questions. At the kicker spot this time of the year where teams come down to the wire you need to rely on. And that's where the vikings stood coming into this game in the seventh and final playoff spot in the. Nfc they now find themselves on the outside looking in into your point at the top there bucky about the bucks in specifically about their offense I mentioned it. Our aftermath production meeting a getting set for our three o'clock eastern time broadcast today on nfl network. I felt like every time. The bucks have won this season. We've asked that question all right. Are they finally figuring it out on offense. Is this finally the product that we're going to see kerry this buccaneers team into the post season. Give tom brady another shot at a super bowl run. I don't know i mean you know. We saw the definitive plane made in this game by the the most unheralded receiver on this team and scotty miller in the deep touchdown catch who've kind of disappeared from the game plan since the antonio brown came along i know rob gronkowski ended up scoring on in this one as well but i just i'm still left with questions when it comes to the bucks offense in. I don't know that there's enough time left in this season to truly find all the answers but there is also by that same token. Dj still time for the box to truly figure this thing out here. Three games left before they can find their way into the playoffs here but they still do thought a little rest there for tom. Brady you saw him play. Well i know the numbers weren't great but you saw that especially that deep ball I thought he threw the ball. Pretty well the challenge is gonna be in years past when he's been in new england as he's gotten older. Tom brady's usually had that by to try. And freshen up as they go on games and that's not happening this year. So from here on out We'll see how that wear and tear how he holds up through. That process are what's the next one here. What you got the jags and the knee. Henry fights room fifty henry forty henry thirty henry twenty henry ted and taken out by herndon at the five. I sang by herndon to get there. But the big man. Derrick henry has just picked up forty seven yards yet. I guess if you're the jags defense know you can look back on this performance. And say you're not the only ones a derrick henry now for the fourth time in his career has gone for over two hundred yards and scored two plus touchdowns in. I hope this is okay in the dating of jeremiah book of context. Everyone else who's done. That is a hall of famer. Okay and nobody. As more such games in nfl history derrick henry surpassing jim brown surpassing barry sanders surpassing ladainian tomlinson for the most two hundred plus yard games with two scores. Just another signature. King henry rushing performance in this game now. Here's here's where. I want to have a little debate with you guys because our research team when they sit out there postgame research thought. This was kind of interesting. You know how in the nba. It's all about your big three. Right is your big. Three's good existing three while talking about the titans and their big three with tannehill. Derrick henry the leaks rushing leader and aj brown probably top five receiver in this league. Right now is there now. There are better offenses in totality there. Better teams probably into tally especially on paper. But is there a truly better trio out there right now the tannehill derrick henry in attack mahomes travis kelsey tyreek hill any missing the point. Dj it's gotta be a running back. The big vince. Specify you got this contest you gotta give me some guidelines yes. I'm talking about running back receiver and quarter hoping. I'll put tyreek hill at running back. They're always looking easily is definitely a very formidable. Big three because their physical tough there officiant sorta match up with them. I mean yeah. Maybe davante adams in what aaron jones. Yeah i'd take. I would take their carry over here. Jones but i would take obviously take aaron rodgers over. I ten yeah. No i get that a davante adams. I take over. Aj brown a little more of a discussion but they went to the three matchups there. I'll give you that one. I'll give you the packers. But they're out there and that's what's gonna make the titans of fun watch here down the stretch of the playoffs especially competing with the colts here. The you know. What about glenn that. What about glen robinson jarque. We have this conversation going there and she was starting this week. So could breaking news all right. Let's get to the final takeaway here. Speaking of the chargers chargers it was a complete win for the chargers. Now comes mike bachelor for a game winner and wouldn't that be great exclamation point. Dj to have special teams. Get a walk off here today or do absolutely do charges are due for something good to happen on special teams and now you've got a chance to walk this way off with aj lee along fifty three to season this one going to be from forty three right hash is up and it is good chargers win mike badgley with the game. Winning field goal money fired up fired up for the big win there from the bolts. So look this was. This was could've gone really bad. If they lose that game than all the focus and attention is going to be on the debacle at the end of the first half where they ran the ball. Twenty seconds left did not get any didn't get any points when their ten eleven yard line it was. It wasn't tobacco. But they end up overcoming that winning. This is a game where they actually had a big kick return from their starting safety. They've put on kickoff return now. Is anthony lens taken over special teams. He had a big return. The game winning kick their from badgley at the end. The defense forced a three options against matt. Right offensively herbert. When he had to make playmate including i thought arguably best made all year long which is saying something to set up that game winning field goal on a deep corner which was just a missile that he threw there so one of the few times. You saw the chargers collectively as a team. Come together and get a win. And the other thing i would say my takeaway after watching the game live a rat. I'll get to you on this one. Because is there a more underrated. That i would say even superstar in this league. Ridley calvin ridley is good man when you see him in person with how fast he plays and how clean he is he is a study is special. Player is suddenness is a suddenness in acceleration like it's almost unexpected like you feel like he's at top speed like in his top gear and then he finds this separations speed right at the very end. I mean he can get three yards of separation in literally. The blink of an is routes are so good in so chris You know he he was basically the entire fouth offense in this game right. I was actually kind of curious as to what you guys thought. Matt ryan's performance in this game honestly ended up with three interceptions and it's kind of been a troubling trend for matt ryan in the second half of the season in a season that could prove pivotal to his future in atlanta guys since week eight. There's only three quarterbacks in football with lower passer rating than matt ryan and it seemed arnold in carson. Wentz is one of those things. I've had this conversation about the atlanta falcons and whoever comes over and takes over as general manager and if they move on from ray moore's as enemy coach and in another coach. Where do you believe. Matt ryan fits in with the rebuil- is it a retail or rebuilt. Because when you look at ryan matt ryan is like one of the last of a dying. Breed of quarterback did traditional pocket pass. It offers no athleticism and mobility. Can you continue to win in this league. Those superheroes that we're seeing on the defensive line that are attacking the quarterback. And so i believe this year they gotta go and look and seriously entertain getting the quarterback of the future in this draft because matt ryan is certainly on the back nine of pretty solid. Nfl career well when we look at it and if the season were to end today the atlanta falcons would have the seventh pick so draft where we think conceivably we could see four quarterbacks. Go in the top. Ten of wouldn't shock me. They're going to be in range to get an interesting player there if they if they if they want to go that route. And maybe you know. Matt ryan ends up giving one more year as you give that time. That player time. I think to me you look at trae lance who somebody that probably could use a little bit of seasoning. He's twenty years old. He's only been one year of really just got tons of ability and a lot of athleticism. That might be a good spot for somebody like him as we as we look towards the future but it was good. It was nice actually leave. Leave the stadium not not running through your mind as you're walking to your car about a special teams laps. Never seen before charvis. So they gotta win. Matt matt had one of his better calls of the year. So kudos money. Well buck Funds show today excited about the future. Man we're coming down the home stretch here. The nfl season dj. We call it the dash for the cash. This is all about trying to get in the tournament. We know those playoff bonuses mean a lot to players more importantly you trying to chase the ring.

We're GONNA talk about some of the best ball leagues that he's been in so far this year So that will be dropping Thursday morning anything else to report or can we get into the fantasy stuff. He's all right football guys brutal border and Rob Responsible for tonight's rundown chicago-sun-times Jason Licensor leaser. Not sure how to pronounce it reports that the bears are planning on pursuing Austin Hooper. Dave is twenty six years old. Had Seventy five seven eighty seven six as far as his line last year. Expect get ten to twelve million dollars annually on the open market and they only have twenty six million dollars in cap space. Do the bears. Obviously Trey. Burton has been let down. Adam Shaheen has not lived up to what they thought he was going to do. And he's been a battery predictable bias BIOS by the way. How do we say that? Well no I did but in You may at some point. I got him as my third tight end in Dynasty League. That's the only league I owned so I guess for the there was a guy who got a big contract and never performed at all anywhere else and didn't perform in the in the future so he performed in a small sample size in Philly. Yeah doing small very small sample. It's not a good year with was not that great. I remember talking to anyway Ryan pace who's the GM of the bears actually was High Austin Hooper he went with Jonathan Bullard instead and who the book bears actually cut. So you're looking and by the way I just saw rob Damanski Right before we came on the show tonight to packers reporter saying that. Who's hooper packers are expected to be involved in Austin Hooper as well so regardless of of where he goes Dave As You well let let's frame it like this. Let's talk about this because we don't know where he is going to be right now. He is going as Tight end six at the fiber one. Not Knowing where he's going to be. Would you be okay taking him there? Given that whoever signs them is gonNA use them or does that seem a little too high. It seems kind of okay. I mean because you know his stats last year. I mean I don't know that there's a ton of upside to that but the position it's tough. I mean he could get more touchdowns I mean Atlanta. Just didn't really hit them that much in the room and they started throwing two. Julio in the Red Zone Ali. Yeah who saw that? Kind of draw their complaints. Well Kevin Really was there too and it really sounds like crazy and look what hooper still put up. You know what I mean. It's just you you're GONNA go to often so Atlanta's good offense that runs your quarterback so you have to get that. I expect. I would expect him to want to go to a contending typist team of. What's the packers won? The BEARS COULD BE I. Guess so Tennessee north. Pretty good There's four tight ends going in the fifth round right now and F F. Pc Best Balls Cooper leads the way. Would you quit rather here? Would you rather have Austin Hooper? Evan Angra Thinking Rather Hooper. Ingram's like isn't he? We're GONNA get into anger him and a little bit. I agree with you there. We'll tell the listeners. Why shortly here's an interesting one? Austin Hooper Tyler Higby man. I'll take I'll tell you who for Higgs. Got Those other three receivers at ten with if they cooks and ever it still right And he had a really small sample size too. But that's a tough one because he really did look super super good off. The end of last season is just crushing. It you really was. I mean I don't know I go back and forth on that one I I I'm GONNA have to. I'M GONNA have to give that kind of push. How many guests? I would lean. Who I it's very close for me. I would lean hooper as well How many guests do we have on after the season ended where we're talking about? Hey what was your lineup. Like who who seems like it'd be was like the the second flex you know. They had like waller or some other title Kelsey or somebody and then he'd be was the second flex And then the other one another free agent unrestricted free agent. We don't go in this year. Hunter Henry Yeah. I like Henry Henry over Hooper I do. Actually I like hundreds of school so I know he's got some injury issues but sometimes think Henry's is going to be better I I still would say hooper but it is close for me as well To Packer chiming in Tyler. Higby was giving a sheep all ranking when they came out on January seventeenth so now remind me is the she is bad or is it. Good is non as bad so non people is good and cheaper. I mean there's four asses and he's going to put them in the chat here shortly. I always forget. There's like sheep wool sexy And then I can't remember the other two like stupid might have been one of. I can't remember. He'll post them in there to packer. Post them in there shortly and we'll find out what it is all right. Let's move on last year. In the past year day I'd be like the rankings idea. Yeah I do too cowboys owner Jerry. Jones says he has thought about re-signing Dez Bryant quote. I've thought a lot about it in the shower. Not sure what to make that Dallas Morning News Michael Belkin took it as a serious statement and the cowboys have not dismissed the prospect out of hand. He has thirty one years old. He did not play last year after he blew out his Achilles. The twenty eighteen with the saints now. This is interesting. Because you have Michael Gallup the up and comer there in Dallas. Mario Cooper is a free agent. I guess the question one. Do you expect the cowboys to get things done with? The Mario Cooper Yes I do. Okay and Cooper right now. People are paying a premium form. He's well maybe that'll premium actually. He's going wide receiver. Eleven at the three ten right now right behind. Dj More and Odell Beckham. But ahead of Allan Robinson and Juju Smith Schuster. I guess I could get on board with that seems about right. I don't think that's that's I guess. I would take cooper probably over Beckham at this point. I don't think I could make a good case for taking Beckham over Yeah I mean. In fact that was healthy and bakers getting better. I guess you could make the argument. That that Cooper to a bad team but it's a you know it's there's some downside no side of both of them Speaking downside you're in a twenty eight round best ball with the F. FCC Dez Bryant still out there can you make a case for drafting sure? Twenty eighth round you really. You would think I would. I think some of this. This is such a A young man's game and I'd be I'd be taking a rookie wire By the way people sexy stone ensure are the are the four levels so okay so I thought people is bad. She lives bad so what good he. I don't think he put them in order. Sexy is good and put them in order. Lexi is good. Stone is bad and sure as like okay. I'll take as he put it around. Flyer with upside or stone. I don't know I would assume she does your race ridiculous you know. Put them in order or something I think she pulls the worst and then it stone and then it's sure and then it's sexy. I think that's how it goes. She's nice all right. What were you going to say? I'm sorry you're GonNa ask me a question about. I said twenty Acre Zuma's blanket something or other Rod blankenship. Yeah that's that's when I say Rob Blake and she pulled. It goes to the twenty thrown. I don't think that's his name. It's blankenship who gives a How many do I have at this at your free accuser fourth guy? But he's he gets wrapping Guy GonNA draft. I would take does briant Rodriguez so it was right about regal blanket. Show have you seen this Guy Dave whereas right through the real thick glasses didn't see that part but he's got a leg period. Oh that's cool. He's got what he lacks in eyesight. He has an in leg glasses. I think because it's been eyesight that blockers just trying to know their clear like they're they're like REC specs. Almost they wears wonder. It's not like the corona virus because you can get the I bet that's fine with a pat on the faith and you gotta get the Ice Shields to. He's worn them for years though. That's that's my point. Maybe just the regular flu. Maybe the flu is fighting off the flu. Hey we got Brian Harris coming up here in just one minute WANNA get to One other quick thing. Yeah let's just do one of these Henry Rugs Album wide receiver ran the forty in four point. Two seven seconds at the scouting combine according to Adam schefter on twitter rugs. Obviously everybody is seeing. If you could break John Ross's record came point zero five seconds short of that five eleven one eighty eight and run as a brand new sub one thirty a sub four thirty forty which is obviously really good they have. This is a guy that is being talked about as a top three receiver in the draft. Here's my problem and jeered. Smaller was actually talking on twitter about this and he kinda got called out for it. I'm a little nervous and and Mola said I besides speed. He doesn't know what Henry Rugs does. Well and then you know people chimed in on that or whatever. I'm I'm not with them that I don't think he does anything. Well this is. The Guy Actually paid attention to a lot because he was originally committed to Florida state and then he issued them for Alabama which was really frustrating. Certainly the better decision for him but I'm a little. I always get nervous because certainly there are. Guys who have speed is a great value great asset and they turn out to be great pros but I guess I'm a little bit nervous about a guy whose main quality is speed and you're talking about taking him within the top fifteen picks of the draft. I don't know if you've followed Henry rugs and know a whole lot about him right now but just sort of that philosophy of a guy who's always really really fast well that doesn't always work out in the NFL. If that's the one thing you do really good yeah I mean it's production seems to be lacking I I don't have the rest of the team stacks but if I guess I'm looking at market shares. That are just probably well below where we'd be looking at at players And when you really hyping them up you want a high market share and it just doesn't seem to me. I mean seven hundred forty one yards receiving twenty eighteen seven forty six and twenty nineteen. I'm only forty six and forty receptions respectively that those numbers unless through two thousand twenty one hundred yards. And they're not. Yeah yeah so I I. I think that those numbers just aren't GonNa now it. What if I told you that? The the two other guys that he played at why that were with him on that team. Wideout was Jerry Judy. Who's going to be a top ten? Maybe a top five overall pick and devante Robinson who stayed in the. He came back for for another year at Alabama. But who many people thought would be a first round pick this year they could add three first-round receivers. Does that give you a little bit more a little bit? I mean when you had Jarvis Landry noto vacuum they both produced quite well and so that wasn't an issue with those guys at Lsu So but nevertheless I mean it is true. I mean when you have when you have so many stars like that team knows I mean it. It does limit your prospects. Sometimes it does it does. And we'll We'll get a team to maybe the team. Just send him on bombs all the time I mean for all. I'm sure they did. Well you know what they did really well is is You know he's got about running back for a few. Of course everybody was great. Everybody's great we'll get into we'll get into that As we get our dynasty analysis going on I wanna get the best ball analysis and bringing Tonight's guests he's one more than one hundred thousand dollars. Lifetime and season long fantasy football prizes including including excuse me finishing third this past year and twelfth and twenty eighteen overall in national main event competitions. He is a self proclaimed. Fm PC best ball addict and runs the paper. Champs high-stakes Franchise please welcome into the show. Mr Brian Harris Brian. Welcome into the high stakes fantasy football. Our man going everyone very good. Yes you're coming through Great Ryan do you. Are you watch the scouting combine all very much? You Know I. I have in the past and I- overwhelm myself with that stuff from I'm so this year I said I'm not gonNA dive into it as much As as having passed just to give myself a little bit of a break I'll definitely analyze everything as it gets closer to the draft and and see where people go. Yeah I I think I'm with you. It's just it's too much information. I get overwhelmed by it too. It's it's information overload Speaking of which before we get to fantasy football information overload Brian. Can you tell the listeners? What you do for a living when you're not hundreds of thousands of dollars with the F. FCC Well you know I. I'm a business owner of a few businesses In the main one that I have is. It's a temporary staffing agency. We have like around four hundred employees or so. So I'm I'm pretty busy. But those those things Also have a franchise of United Check cashing. You've ever heard of that or not. But the check cashing franchises disappeared. You know business type stuff. That's nothing nothing too crazy. So you're hustling and business and you're hustling and fantasy football. God bless go. Yeah it is so so so far behind. You drafted nine teams The season is there anything that stood out to you? You know balking we. Don't you know we don't know what we're doing so we always like to get advice from people like yourself who are actually playing so help us. Uh Future I think things that stand out for me really just like you know a little more Jackson high chain him going you know in the first and second rounds and You know obviously with the with the history behind the big season quarterback in the follow up season usually not not being as good I I am you know I could see where people are taking them there. But I just couldn't do it and You know the temptation there but taking a quarterback that early and he's draft just just eat way to strengthen your team's court position so especially in basketball I I I've also seen wake me rookies. I think in my opinion going going early right now. With people are taking flyers. And all right Brian do you. Because you've you've done a ton of best balls over the years typically. Do you normally see that at this type? The time of year where the rookies are going way too high or does this seem like they're going even higher Maybe I'm putting more of an emphasis on not trying to do that. So maybe that's why it's an to me. I probably have done that in the past but every year. I just Kinda work at trying to get better and I know that that that taking some of these movies rookies Early right now I should say is probably you know it's a it's a gamble so I'm trying to get west riskier here as they get older So so mature. Yeah exactly. Yeah that that's what it's all about. Take less risks and you gotta grow up sometime. That's right yes Brian. So we know that you're you're not going crazy for rookies. As as maybe some of your other fellow drafters are are. Are you taking that same approach? Where you're talking about. Guys like Austin Hooper earlier where we don't know where they're GONNA end up. Do you take the same approach with free agents because these guys you kind of know what they can do. But you don't necessarily know what their new role their new offense their new coaches are going to be doing. So do you fade free agents a little bit too well right now? I don't necessarily say the agents but I kind of I don't target or certain players right now I'll turn out Just mix mix them up a little bit right now until I get more definitive thing of what's going to happen now. Think shakeout after free agency and the NFL draft when you really start to try to target on specific players. That I want Right now I I will. I will shuffle them. I'll play the game I will I will tend to take people that are free agents with with a with a a a background history right now. Over THOSE ROOKIES. That makes sense. Actually I mean it. You know they're proven players and speaking of proven players. You took David Johnson at seven. Oh one in recent best ball draft and the team. Actually you know there was some rumor for sure while possibly becoming a free agent if they were GonNa let him go or not but he's still could be become happened right yeah So did you have any Opinion how that situation resolves itself in Arizona maybe get cut or traded and Kenyan drake the free agent there too. Yeah yeah or they could drop one of these guys. Yeah well I mean that. That might have been around her too early for him right now. and that seventh-round you know considering where he's going Considering what is no But but I know that I knew that. The the quarterback runs in all drafts. Right now typically start going around eight nine so I needed a shop at either running back in that spot so I took a share him. There's third running back I figure that his contract does present a tough situations. You know for the cardinals. Obviously like to restate drake as he definitely Gained favorite favorite there. It seems to fit what they're trying to do. But I'm I'm not sure that Having that much money tied up a running back between John and it's GonNa be possible so Something's gotta give their either drake size elsewhere in Johnson. Become the defacto starter. Again with chase admits the mix or or somehow someway Johnson gets out of Arizona has a whole amount fantasy opportunity and a much more appealing situation. And if that happens get potentially shoot back up like probably into couple earlier around. I'm sure but So yeah I mean I think it was overall to too much risk. They're considering I think I already had McCaffrey or something in that draft. So I'm just trying to really feel that second running back spot up already got McCaffrey at the one on one man you just gotTa take take picks like Johnson to give everybody else a chance right. I mean at that point. It's you gotta be fair. Keep it fair but what you did. So congratulations on that. We're talking with Brian Harris here on the high stakes fantasy football hour. A career winner of over one hundred thousand dollars in best ball competitions fantasy football high stakes competitions as well talking about some of the issues that are facing the early drafters like Brian in Nfp best balls right now. Evan Anger. Let's talk about him a little bit here because there is a report that he obviously had his list. Franck surgery a little over two months ago. He's still reportedly a walking boot Is it too early to start pushing him down? Draft Boards this season and to give you a little bit of an idea. You kind of know where he's going you. You've done a lot of drafts already. I mentioned earlier in the show five. Oh four right between Hooper In Tyler higby right now. That's where Evan anger is going. Do you think that he should be going a little bit? Further down given his health issues. Right now you know I think twice so far But this obviously wasn't you know best ball January February but now now that those reports are that he's still walking but it doesn't it doesn't sound real promising and could definitely be a faith for me going forward until I know a little bit more. I mean one thing. I learned over using that smoke. There's fire so so when you see these reports like that just come out somewhere that you know. He's not not on schedule and on track. You can't just put the blinders on. I think he'll be back at a certain time. Or you know these these Was Frank Injuries. They're they're they're pretty Lincoln recovery period so definitely you know. Put Push them down and Definitely or avoidable together right now until until later on until I see if he decides practicing training camp or anything like that. If he doesn't if he doesn't do anything probably will probably might not even touch them the rest of the way it depends on off my board balking is off seriously. Are you just saying that? I'm saying unless my board goes faith or any thrown back then and I off my. There's so many other tight ends that I liked better there like I'd rather have who. I'd rather higby Hunter Henry. Now you're getting after that. It's like Jared Cook Dallas Scott North Fan. Who'd you rather have no fanfare Evan? Ingram this moment is kind of close. Might take fans actually again. You know like like Brian said. I don't like taking injured guys at all. Brian would you take fans over? Ingram right now That's that's a tough call tough call. I'll tell I'll tell you what I would you know. There's there's a cheer of Tight End. That always come out of I can't say like out of the woodwork. But for example last year you had the Mark Andrews in the Darren Waller's that you could get a little later in that in that mix and the year before that it was kill So Fa could be one of those type of guys but probably even more. So maybe sickie or and Thomas as well And just kind of skin tight end what you get to that here and try to take one of those guys. Maybe a couple of rounds after that you're injured trump was coming on. I mean you didn't mission. Both you've a jerk. Hook was coming on. Really well the saints later. Yeah he was indeed and he gets drew brees back for a full year two. That's right Luckily luckily for the rams receivers they get jared Goff again So you have proper lucky right for whatever they got the same coach with the uninnovative offense but who was Brandin Cooks? Possibly possibly not. We don't know what his story is. Maybe I knew his twelve team in six seasons or whatever you think it's a winning strategy though to stack the rams receivers invest Boeing's I have taken. I think I've taken cup and cooks together but I absolutely love cooks. This year are in Medical Tom Cooper Cup this year another year off at ACL. I just really like his game. I think that that he's that he's GonNa take another step I wouldn't say necessarily stacking Ramos Wide Receiver Right now. Something I'm looking at you but Do of Cook and Brandin cooks seems to be doing such a good value right now in best ball that it's hard not to take him. You know without hesitation. You know. Eleven or wherever. It is right or whatever's ADP is but felt pretty much take them every time That late right now whether or not I have cup or or or cupper woods So it doesn't really matter but If it happens it happens if not but it's definitely not a strategy that that I'm trying to to get because you know you're stacking these guys with with Jared Goff witches Noga. We talked earlier to with the day. Brought it up. There's the tyler higby factor. There's the Gerald Everett factor as well. So it's not just necessarily those three receivers. It's fine. If you want to do it. It could work out not sure. It's a winning strategy. Like you said Brian. If it happens it happens Second why don't in Pittsburgh we've had several discussions about this ever since the season really was drawing to a close before it ended isn't the Anti Johnson for you. I think that's the way I have. Pc owners have been going. Are you still believe in James Washington is being the number two to Juju Smith Schuster or do you think Pittsburgh bring somebody else in To play opposite Smith Schuster Season has been rothlisberger returns to play quarterback. They're our you handicapping. The second WTO position for the steelers that that huge you played a lot of slot with Ben. I think So these two guys could definitely could definitely play actually like them both. I think basketball a lot now as far as like a redraft. I I'd have to really sit down and think about that but not this time. I really like I really like both best ball. They they both pop games. They're both GONNA progress and other year The difference though is that right now You can get a much better value on Washington. 'cause he's going. I think somewhere in seventeenth eighteenth round while while Johnson as an ADP probably around ten or eleven Round so but the I'll take you out. He did his rookie season. Reminded me of Some similar in my mind to like Portland Rookie. Year and James Washington ended up having very similar numbers in the second year so he has that third year wide receiver Label that everybody likes to so Those guys are definitely people. That targeting at their current. Adp's I'll take. I'll take both of them in a basketball and Drafting not. Necessarily you know who I don't know who will end up being the number two. But I'll draft both of those guys according you know according to value however however they may fall. Hey think about Dave what they did last year with. Mason Rudolph is quarterback and now you got rothlisburger and and and to get those guys as late as they're going right now. That's not a bad way to do it. And even if you get your Smith Schuster early too I just I. How many games would mason. Rudolph played before you got. What are you confident? What hold on you know what I actually have? I have that in front of him giving facing Sour Puss facebook I it makes these things. He missed fourteen through sixteen lasts after that Guy. Anyway myles Garrett thing. It's just nice getting getting big Ben back having like a you know a two hundred eight hundred. Eighty pound ogre at quarterback. You're by the way about big button. Yeah I like and then he'll you know fractures leg or whatever and then they'll put a stick on it and the next week he'll play right Anyway just enjoyed but they showed a refunder. The steelers tweeted out a video of him throwing at Kinda like half speed or whatever. Yeah it's got a big huge beard and I know that As I brought this up on the show before I'll do it again. Sigmund Bloom was actually talking about quarterbacks. I one of the football guys podcast. And he said you know. Sometimes you need you know. We talk about cerebral quarterbacks and and you know being able to be you know knowing what the defense is doing but sometimes you need a quarterback. That's like a Ben Rothlisberger Sir and this is crazy. You need a quarterback like Ben Rothlisberger. We sorta like a you know like you just like a a grunt out there. Who just gets it done? You know not not that. He's not cerebral. He's a smart guy. You know what I mean. Just like the an absolute brute out there never goes down keeps the play alive and and and make it happen chuck at sixty times for like five hundred and fifty ours shooter. Type game he has like two of those games a year. Yeah minimum out granted. Antonio Brown's gone in Ghana for defense. So who knows what's GONNA happen but I? I still think we all right like Ryan was kind of alluding to the onset Johnson James Washington. Maybe they don't take all of Antonio Brown right or place but as they mature they're definitely start to really fill some of that absolutely absolutely. I'm totally with you Brian. We're still you're still here right. We're otherwise talk all right. Yeah okay all right these cancer anyway. So here's the question Mile Sanders is going off at the tool six the eleventh running back off the Board. Lots of early running backs going. Nfl PC best ball Even taking mild sanders in that mid second or are you looking at a wide receiver sometimes in that range. I have taken Picking them after the two six Which I think was probably pretty good value but Yeah he's going earlier and earlier it seems now he's he's creeping up in the early second you know there. There are a lot of run back to that that second round. They do like So I've been just for now until things shake out I've been you know rotating those second round back. Then there's a bunch of good ones like Jake And equity for Nat Sanders as well included but Until later in the season I really start development targets in my fades But Sanders he is. He's a great talent though and is gonNA start sneak his way up. Definitely you know more towards the end of the first run as the season comes closer. I'm pretty sure but one thing you mentioned that you know we're talking about basketball is that it's still possible. The Eagles continued using Boston Scott a little bit like they did down the stretch and that Darren sproles real which kind of inconsistent well but for you know how sanders isn't a PA- you know it's Ki- consisting sanders is going to be great in the passing game. But but he's super cheap. You know best option right now To take a flyer on reiter thirteen fourteen fifteen out whatever it is I I think he's especially maybe some I I might have even stepping up with milestone. Isn't the best but we're trying to do too much in basketball You know because it applies and things like that so but yeah Standard definitely pounds. And he he. He could be could be one of those guys that that turns into a week. What are the certain natural? We're talking about after him. You know in the top half of the first phone. They who knows Brian? I should ask you this earlier because you will draft best balls. No matter the time drafting season. Why do you like to drafts right now? In January and February. You know we're coming up on March now. Is it because you can find a Lotta pretty good value in these drafts? Have you had some success? Drafting this early or is it just like man. I don't have any. Nfl football going on right. Now I gotta get my football fixed. Why not do a draft? Why do you what? What's the attraction of dropping right now? Well it's kind of a mix of both I think I'm I'm I'm sick in the head with some staffing. I really am and I have to force myself not draft. That's that's how bad it is but I do get. I end up getting some values this time of the year so it does go hand in hand but Like last year I believe at this time before the NFL. Come on. I think I was getting mile centers that we just spoke about in the around twenty twenty one eighteen nineteen I was. You know like this talent and sometimes you know you track these. These rookies and things like that early based upon their skill set. But you don't really know You know what the opportunity is going to be like. Are they going to land on the team with Adam Gates and not play. You know you know you might be the best position so there's a lot of things you know especially with the rookies like they said And their opportunity but you can get those fields you know and then all go and the you know fit six seventy round this closer to the season last year So I I mean I think that it is to get some value but for the most part I'm just I'm just I'm always trying to be competitive at something. I'm always trying to be better. I'm always analyzing property over analyze and I'm just I'm just different to the drafting The message from the chattering here the mascot of the show to packer wants to know Kenny. Golic going at the two three turn going at three. Oh four officially right now Brian. Is that a spot. Is the receiver off to board. I should bring that up as the eighth receiver board at three or four. Is that a good spot for him to packer like any good friends about twitter friends with Kenny. Golladay is the mascot of Packer Cantagalo. They won a one no matter what or somewhere off no matter what but the last year. I you know speaking of Kenny. Go that He. He's the guy that like last year I had On forty two percent F. PC teams That I was taking so it's pretty high last year. I thought I was getting him at a at a good price. So I You know but So but yeah too. That's funny. Good market share. That's awesome. Yeah what did you guys got to work that thrilled. This is what we do. We're we're Switzerland. I'm going to show people together Or something like that. Let's go to the emails here for you. Brian that came in versus from Leeann Manhattan. He writes is now the time to draft Levy on bell coming off one of the worst seasons of his career Levian bell going in F. FCC best balls right now. He's fallen to three. Oh nine years going as the seventeenth running back off about Dave. I'm just gonNA bring this up running backs fifteen sixteen and seventeen this year. Melvin Gordon Todd Gurley Levy on how the mighty have fallen all guys. We're going in the first round within the last two years and Gordon. So Cathy you're off that is true. Yeah but Specifically about bell here Brian at the three. Oh nine is. Is that a buying opportunity for bell there or would you still pass on? I don't I don't I don't like Adam Gates. I don't like that I don't like the situation. I JUST. I'm living bells a tough tough call for me I just. I'm shying away from them. I think it could burnaby could balance. I think that when he was in Pittsburgh he had he had a superior. You know offensive line at all times. That scheme was just really good for his running style and he he did produce. He didn't give anybody those monster games. Though that you need to win easily he was like that. Okay you that fifteen every week or that fourteen or whatever it was I don't know I I. I don't see the upside there with him anymore. I WATCH RATHER TAKE. Melvin Gordon Even not even knowing where he's going right now because if he goes somewhere it's going to be somewhere. I think he's definitely going to have a heck of a lot of opportunity so full season. Melvin Gordon for a guy who was also you know going in the end the first round when he was going to hold out or not. Whatever so Y- I would. I would I'm not I'm not gonna go near the bell. That much less value is too much not to pass on them just to show how much Brian knows about. We've both scoring last year. The fourteen point four six points. A game so riled in fourteen and fifteen absolutely dialed that yeah. Well this is we bring the heavy hitters on the show. Dave hang on. We don't have the voices we don't we bring in the the real Speaking of the real we have another real question for you from Randy in Chicago. Here Brian he writes. Are you bouncing off of Alshon Jeffery? I'm not really seeing much upside. Drafting him where he's going and F. FCC drafts and to illuminate by the way. Thanks to the emails. Both Lee and Randy on this one. alshon Jeffery in the NFC. Best Ball fifteen o eight right now. I mean it's Super Low wide receiver fifty nine. I just I I look at that. It's like man why not at that point but given what his productions been You know over the last year year and a half. Maybe that's why he is going that way. What about you Brian? Are you getting on board with Alshon Jeffery at that point you know? He's he's one of those guys. It's always there at that time and I look at I go now. It's the list Frank. I think that that's again with him. I'm pretty sure if that's if I'm not mistaken As far as The injuries with him go. And I just the He's another guy I I if he goes if he's healthy and he's on another team or different situation. Maybe even though Philly have spot from the beam but something to spark him like you know like that that pretty good easy in Chicago or something but Yeah I'M NOT I. Don I was never alshon Jeffery Fan That's bad to say I mean it should be a fan of anybody that can produce my team As long as it makes sense you know but No He's a guy mom also probably I'm not I may have taken him once to diversify maybe in these nine or ten traffic done so far. But that's that's about it and it was definitely at a discount for sure The the latest update we got from Alshon Jeffery from the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News. Howie Roseman this past. Tuesday did not speak about Alshon. Jeffery is Health or his future with the team the quote We're getting there from Roseman. Those are things that we're going to keep in house and we'll have honest conversations with all of our players. We'RE NOT GONNA get into timetables on injuries but we can talk about Alshon. The most important thing for Alshon is getting them healthy as quickly as possible. You're right it. Was Frank Surgery thirty years old man. I I don't I'm not seeing the upside there. you know fifteenth round. I get it. You WanNa diversify like you said here and there. That's cool but I don't think he's GonNa be winning. Anybody any drafts. This year debut you on board with that. Yeah it does make sense however having said that he is technically. I mean you know you could argue that criticism on target but the number one receiver on on NFL team and Alice was always a proponent of that the prop Nas Decatur he would always you know he was huge. Say Oh I got the number one receiver in NFL team in the eleventh round which You know there's something to be said for that. There has yeah and and he's number one for not well. This is such a deep crop of that crap. I WANNA say that there's a deep come after whatever. Your thoughts are deep classic receivers this. Maybe he takes one or two and and and it changes and I think in a rookie never becomes almost already comes in Iran. Rec- rover veterans. So all he almost never does go ahead but this is the thirty year old dealing with was frank so I i. I think we're we're not exactly speaking apples to apples. They were speaking Washington's. The honey crisps. I in a best case scenario. I just look at it from the standpoint of of again. This is a young man's game and it's very difficult once you get into your thirties to keep competing at a high level and when you dealt with the injuries that alshon Jeffery dealt with over the course of his career. There's a lot of red flags that said Brown. He can still get even cut possibly right or no. That's well he said Alshon. Jeffery said that he's amenable to a change of scenery so he could land somewhere else to and and if he lands somewhere else maybe he's not the number one maybe he is. I don't know I guess when the game we play dealing with that injury right. It's top all right Dave We Brian's been very gracious Tonight with this time. Can we ask him one final question before we let him go And enjoy his weekend here. All right this is what we need if you could use help us out. We're looking for someone who is being overdrafted. Pc Basketball Leagues so far and then somebody's been a favourite target of yours in the middle rounds in twenty twenty well as I mentioned earlier. I think I think you know. The Lamar Jackson go way too early for my liking Mahomes for that matter as well. Those guys are going way too early on. I like to have some shares of but they're just too expensive right now and Rookie running backs. I think you know that are going is high third round right now I know obviously there's some. There's some potential diamonds out there with the swift and those guys and things like that but you never know what their situation is. GonNa be after the draft. You know they could be the most talented player. Then you get in a situation where you're you're you're in a committee or you don't you know you don't really see regular play until late in the season so that really doesn't help you. I mean I was the victim of of some of that stuff. I mean the Special last year like for example cake and even late Darwin or something like that because he looked you know he pass the eye test but pretty on the field But you know I liked But as far as some of the targets of mine other other than those that I mentioned already but I'm really trying to find players that are going to outperform their value. You know I don't know who all of them are you know yet for for this year has kinda early Those things kind of developed from me but from last year like I said earlier I took I all of that you know. I took him a little bit later and I had quite a bit of him This year receiver. I think like a late round guy. later obviously later kindergarten it was going to last year but like hundred. Renfro as a guy that I who I see like A. You know a poor man's Cooper Cup. I think he s super potential. If you look at the last couple of games that he played last year I really liked his stuff. Dave Guy India's Abella by might come to surface. He's a rich guy. Gets SUPER LATE? Definitely in best ball. He's GonNa pop some some big ones. I think this year Tight end you know. Last year I was I was. I was huge on like Mark Andrews. I had him in forty three percent of my FTC leagues. When I looked it up with this year like I said Oh that guy those guys I like you know the Kosinski you're in Thomas those guys who take a shot on For for that someone you know as far as tight end huguette later When they're running back I think you know in the mid around I like those non-starters you know. Mid TO W- you know. Middle Round said that the non-stars that could be special like instead of taking some dud running back starter like You know whoever's starter in Houston for example or something at the time like when it was Lamar Miller? I never liked him. Or let's say if it was Carl Hacker. Whatever I'd always pass those guys were tried to take upside guy like You Know Alexander Madison or a twenty dollar this year. Those two kind of guys. I I like In a quarterback I would say you know. I think a steadier option. And then also take sexier option with that. Usually in these drafts were most of all my drafts. Actually try try to do that like last year. If I was you know taking a you know a I don't know whenever Rogers or something I'd also like a Josh. Our somebody somebody was upside on the other side This year I would say that that upset Guy. I don't know I don't know if it's him or not. But I've been taking a lot of Daniel Jones so I've ever taken him. It's my second or third. You Know Best Ball quarterback. Almost all these drafts. I've done so far really almost all of them up So hopefully he works on it with the idea that he pops pretty big games as a rookie. So for best ball. That's that's pretty promising That's that's pretty much but you know things are constantly changing and always take this time to get better You know every year and it's a tough game and But it's it's my past and I'm just GONNA keep Keep chugging along until I went all the money Challenge the money to challenge is what makes it enjoyable. The all the money is the prize at the end of the road and Brian. I want to thank you so much popping on tonight. Appreciate all the insight that you've given us Wish you best of luck in all your best ball all your leagues. This year as well continued success. My Man and I you've got a best ball slim going on right now so let you check out. What's going on in that? Yeah let's get back to their combine island swim there. Oh there you go. Yeah are you enjoying it so far? Yes I it's in your Of of not only Not drafting the kickers or defenses but also having four fewer roster spots After the after I usually take say three kickers defensive whatnot if I if I did that. they're not. You know that you really really going from twenty two to eighteen roster spot so that is a little bit more challenging figuring at this time of year. I definitely like taking three quarterbacks in best ball this time because you don't know the the schedule yet for for for the NFL. So you don't WanNa be you know. Have to just try to quarterbacks right now and get stuck with the same by so I try to take three at this point. In time you know later on in the season I could go to but sometimes it's someone to pick three but in this draft. You almost have to go to and just gamble is Kinda early for that. So it's a little strategic Little something different but but not too much different but but I am enjoying it. So far When these are go life? I don't know if they're alive yet but As far as well it'd be a pretty quick drastic. Do 'cause you know. Sometimes you get tired of these drafts when I got to get up in the morning but but it's It's always it is always fun. It's always fun talking fantasy football especially when you have a luminary leg. Brian Harris coming on follow on twitter at Bryant Underscore Harris underscore. Thanks so much for popping on Tonight Dude. Really appreciate it. Good luck this season. Enjoy the dress and we'll talk again soon already. Great Gregor Brian later gentleman a career one hundred thousand dollar winner in the F. FCC best ball Format as well as all high stakes fantasy football. We WANNA get to. How the quarterbacks finished in twenty nineteen and take a look at the position in twenty twenty before we do that. Wash Guy Checking in tonight. He wants to know. What do we do with running back? Kenyan drake and Rehim Moster in dynasty draft pick equivalents to them as metric. What what would you do well? Okay let's frame it like this. Let's break it down by two meter. Both were like early second. I HAVE REMO CERTAIN CARRINGTON. Do you have an early second round? Pick there because I would know dad's too bad. I've been trying to peddle it. Nobody's nobody's biting. It's like I'm fishing with an apple core. It's it's it's it's not good. It's you know it's tough when they're free agents and then you have semi inactive owner so you have like six guys or four four guys that are paying attention and then two of those guys. I don't have the picks you you know. The problem is as we get closer to the. Nfl draft picks become more. And then it's you know what I mean And and the issue is to Dave in that league. I am so running back as David. Hubbard would say naked. It's so I really need. You know a player of his ilk to perform. Why don't you just keep them well? 'cause I don't know if he's going to do it again. And Twenty twenty. His value might be as high as as as it's going to get right now. Yeah I mean I mean for the purposes of your team winning what good is like a thirty percent chance of a forty percent chance of a second round or hitting versus a you know if the forty percent forty percent chance that he will be. Maybe he ends up. I I keep a running back I guess for you for for I think you just like high twenty six twenty seven. Twenty eight yeah. He's he's up there he might need to be older I guess my issue is I. Think the disconnect we have is is you feel. His percentage of hitting in twenty twenty is higher than what I think is percentage of is hitting all although we value the second round pick similarly. We need as he hits in. Twenty twenty odds are GonNa just be successful got for the next few years the incident twenty twenty then. I should not trade him. Obviously I don't know if he's GonNa hit yeah. Well that's That's part of the sad part of the dynasty challenge. There you know I mean uh yeah. Good luck to Kenyan Drake We don't know where he's going to be playing and you still go up early. Second round. Pick for him Yeah early to mid. Yeah no no. It's the mid. Well I'm really I. What's he worth? He's worth early early-to-mid to packers says he's GonNa Start Charging me interest on this Carrington winning. I didn't when did you say how you wanted him? I don't I don't know if I'm supposed to mail a check or pay pal or what I'm supposed to do. I don't even know if he's paid for this year by the way I have no idea what he's talking about there or did you ask him what he wanted. I said when I totaled up the the winnings every year at season I said let me know how I can get your money to you. Oh I've paid out our coal burners and paid out anarchy and I don't know who else I need to pay out yet. No NAMI really. I think you're paid for this year. Oh no you're partially paid. I think I don't know if I am or not but I had high score of the year. I know that so so you ended up getting that. Well whatever stupid. Hey speaking of stupid Dave. Let's talk about the twenty nineteen quarterback results all right so you you have a list in front of you. I don't know if you saw that it's You know there's a eight names now. No no there's the sheep behind that you have and that's that's everybody. So what's the names? The names on your list. The names I wanted to focus on for the next seven minutes here all right. So this is how the quarterbacks finishing twenty nineteen. We're not gonNA talk about every player. But I wanted to center on a few all right James Winston finishes at number two the number two quarterback last year Dave and Tampa doesn't even know if they want him as their guy We saw tonight. He not only played through a broken thumb not only had to have ice surgery but he also played through a torn meniscus last year. This all the while throwing to Oj. Howard Mike Evans Chris. Godwin and more. Now you look at James Winston for Tampa Bay this year and how F P players are treating him. Sir James is going at the eight hundred eight as the qb eight to me. The risk is worth the reward there. And I think it'd be on board with taking James Winston there. Yeah it's worth a shot. He's GonNa be starting somewhere for God's sake and throwing the ball all over the field. That's what's so great about him in together as they both loved to do that he might. You know looser actually might really make a difference. I mean If he had like let's say twenty eight isn't or something he might actually throw fewer picks and chocolate regression than me he. He's so many interceptions that I'm actually. I actually think he's regress to the mean of just throwing few interceptions usually so they're always talking about it when going great stats mediocre stat. Well how can you can't go from sucky statue a Mediocre you absolutely? I think that's one thing. Regressed back to being mediocre and you know slightly worse than average maybe a little worse than than instead of just being the most God awful intercepting quarterback on the planet. Well to that. End Dave if he does regress back on interceptions. He's probably taking fewer chances. And if he's taking fewer chances he was either number one or number two in the League in passing yardage. You'd think that's GONNA come down. He was number two in the league and touchdowns that would probably come down. So while you're right he's probably GONNA regress interceptions. You might regress on those other counting stats as well. Yes I mean but in the eighth round worth the risk is what we're saying. Yes yes that's what I'm saying. You agreeing with me moving on Dak Prescott number four this year. What a season he had last year. Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper both over eleven hundred yards receiving. We'll see what happens with Jason. Witten Ezekiel Elliott was catching everything under the sun last year and you look at how F. FCC owners are treating him this year a little bit different than last year. Dave as he is now going as qb. Six at seven eleven. I don't think I'm taking him there especially given that you know. We don't really know what his contract situation is. I guess worst case scenario they franchise them and he's still a cowboys guy This this Coming Year. But I don't know if I wanna Soka seventh-round picking Dak Prescott well. I think it's highly unlikely that he goes anywhere. I mean his points. Weren't that far off geniuses in his draft positions not much further off than James. He's a little bit more. He's a safer pick never been injured. The team actually stole the want some supposedly. There's such a figure out the dollar amount and they in Gallup's locked in his back was soon whitten's 'cause they don't know yet they're in talks. Yeah and Elliott's there. I mean you have a really an offensive lines. Steve Pretty elite. You know the organization tree you know is a is a organization at the offense will be good so I don't mind I don't really mind Prescott that much in that spot. Although again you know it's a tad early for me to be taking a quarterback right when you get up to the right. But I said last year Josh Allen to be on a lot of my fantasy teams and dammit he was and I loved it. The problem was I paired him with Lamar Jackson a lot. And I didn't really get to joy the Josh Allen because I was always playing Lamar Jackson this year Dave going right behind Dak Prescott. Can you believe it? Qb seven at the eight. Oh two I just feel like with Allen maybe maybe I'm wrong here and tell me I'm wrong if I am but I is the value in Josh Allen dissipated a little bit when you're using and early eighth round pick in a getting on your squad or is he still worth it there. Qb seven is where he's going and he finishes cube six last year. And you gotta believe Buffalo's GonNa Bring in more weapons for him Yeah it's you know. He was very consistent with those with the rushing yardage I mean he he was good. I mean it's hard for me to argue against your show on. This is only his third year coming up so he should be again a little bit better and I regret about the weapons of so yeah. I'm I'm fine with Josh Allen and that's really you know it's weird. I'm approving of all these I think it comes down to me and I'm going to wrap our. I'm I have a statement about all these quarterbacks when we get done I wanNA move through this rapid fire south cuyler Murray finishes. Qb Nine last year. He's going qb nine. This year is that he was going before this year as of not longer. Hold on let me look it up. They got it wrong. Oh no you're right. You're I'm an idiot. I'm an idiot I'm eighty Q. Four seventy one to. Hi Yes I think. That's okay He's going Behi- going right ahead. Okay okay let's do this Dave. This'll be fun. Jack Fresca you would rather have Prescott. Yes would you rather have Russell Wilson going at roughly the same spot however Wilson. Josh Josh Allen at eight Oh two Kalamaria the seven zero one getting closer but I probably a I probably still. Would you skip taking Mary at the seven one? If you're GONNA take Jamie Winston at the age of one I would rather have a few. I mean he's up. He's on the team. He's honesty right. this guy won me a. I got five on it last year. Baker Mayfield finished as qb. Seventeen last year. He's going as QB. Sixteen this year Dave is. They're buying opportunity here. If you'RE GONNA wait on quarterback wouldn't it makes sense? They have Baker Mayfield part of a dual or in your case. Is You like to do in Kentucky a trio of quarterbacks to work with here I'm guessing I'll find someone else in that type of area that I like better but maybe not. I'm not sure who I can tell you exactly going. There's a glut right in the end of the ninth early tenth round. These are the five players quarterbacks going there in order Matthew Stafford Daniel Jones Jared Goff Mayfield and Ryan Tannehill. Oh yeah I'd probably like other players I mean You're probably go off Daniel Jones actually there was a compelling case made by Brian and I agree with them. Actually because they'll dangle John Tip some big games last year Tannehill gets gets interesting. I guess with Jay Brown news next next season so maybe ten whole there's some risk what channel. Here's the guy I like. Best out of that group and it's the next player we're talking about. He finished as quarterback twenty nine last year. Dave but a per game basis. He finished as believe it or not. Qb Five for fantasy points per game Matthew Stafford and he's going at the nine zero nine. Give me all the Stafford there. You Got Kenny Golladay. You Get Marvin Jones. Coming back from injury. It's GonNa be a banner year for that Detroit passing off. It's probably GonNa add somebody else's well I'll take Matthew Stafford there man that's a good taste. Good kids to make twenty five point nine fantasy points. He scored last year. Isn't that crazy? Yeah that's pretty amazing. He was audit. I really didn't realize I didn't realize it till I was looking at this today. I'm like Oh this has gotta be wrong. Facts and figures must be wrong. I confirmed with NASA. They said they were right Final thing I want to bring well no two two other quick points Two guys that got hurt early last year that are going to be coming back this year. Who would you rather draft? Would you? And we know that. The panthers have announced that they're moving forward with CAM. Newton are you moving forward with Cam Newton as your fantasy quarterback at the eleven or one day or would you rather have done rothlisberger? Who's going to ten eleven so basically the same spot or is that the pairing this year. The rothlisburger Cam Newton pairing if you waiver fairly for a long time. It's not the worst. I don't think that's a long time. Well invest a lot of. I guess it is. Yeah you're right. You're in that little window yeah Qb Nineteen in Cuba. Twenty one. Yeah I think I prefer a little bit over Cam. And why is that? I don't know just 'cause he's like seven years older. Yeah I know I mean. Big Ben has produced for a long period of time. But you know I've liked cam too so I mean it's I'm just a little bit. I CAM has not really come back up at injuries. He seems like he's wearing down because he's had somebody rushing yards and somebody hits over his career early on and I just didn't he didn't look last year really at any point. Okay and so the Big Ben. I'm not not as concerned about that so for you. And I'm not trying to put words in your Mouth Cam Newton. It's probably closer to being done. The Ben Rothlisberger far as a career goes but as far as this coming San goes. There's more there's more risk than CAM has a terrible year in just sucks. And he's never been the most accurate passer. Big Ben's always been way more right. What about the weapons? I mean you have Cam Newton throwing the DJ more Christian. Mccaffrey Curtis Samuel in Thomas. Pittsburgh Eh. Vance McDonald the entree Johnson James Washington Juju Connor. I should bring up too sure. Yeah I mean the the receivers and McCaffrey's like a whole `nother receiver are better for Cam again. If he's on the field. That doesn't really matter so I don't know I just to me. Just campus You doubt on camp. You don't ask that I. I like it skills so I always have like. I said but I just again. I just don't know if he's back I don't know I don't want to take that risk when big bonuses sooner. He has Garoppolos just sitting there as well. If you're talking about quarterbacks in that area kirk cousins Sam darnold Joe Borough. You can have tiny hands borough instead of Cam Newton this year. Would you rather have for best ball thorough or new okay all right? I don't want to turn your hands. Borough speaking tiny one year wonder. Okay speaking of one. You're wondering Is there a this year's Lamar Jackson? Nfp This year. As far as quarterbacks. Go I feel like it. Was Patrick. Mahomes in twenty eighteen. It was Lamar Jackson and twenty nineteen. That guy who goes in that eighth to tenth round area that sets the world on fire and ends up being the League winner. Is there anybody for you there? This year I mean the best candidate would be Carter. Murray I just I don't go into high. That's why I also don't see it. I mean he didn't it's again. It's possible but it didn't seem like they were in a row if they're gonNA turn into the pistol offense that's the one thing you know. The Ravens changed their offense in ranted around. Lamar Jackson is rushing ability They did rush. Murray did have more Russia's later in the season so maybe they're figuring that out a little bit So he's the one. I guess that if I had to pick anyone even I was saying it was Kinda Fella keeping overdrafted. He's when I would go all right. I'M GONNA throw two names that you for potential Lamar Jackson Jane Jones now say Jones. Tiny hands borough and the only reason I say him is because I feel like I don't mean. Aj Green could be back. They will probably add a couple of dynamic playmakers on offense to supplement borough and you still have mixed in there Plus Awesome Tyler Boyd. And Awesome Tyler Boyd Initiative on the show the A TV yeah And Awesome and then you have in Baker Mayfield obviously Beckham Landry Enjoy who if he's back Nick Chubby? They'll probably have somebody else's well. I don't really have a good reason. Other than that. For those guys and none of them run as well as Lamar Jackson. I guess Mahomes didn't run as well as Lamar Jackson did either But I really can't see anybody else at this point and I think the only two reasons I'm saying those guys is because of the a little bit and Baker Mayfield. We kind of know the only thing that's really changing from this year is he gets a new Head coach and A new offense you know and other than that we it. It's kind of. He is who we thought he was. And we'll see if we let them off the hook. I Don I don't know what was Baker Mayfield. Why did he have a bad year? Last year I really didn't own them anywhere citing and I didn't really watch those games so bad I think a lot. Well number one. I think Freddie Kitchens too much on his plate This is a guy who has never been a head coach anywhere before. He was offensive coordinator for one year and then he came in and try to do both jobs and just the cesspool that was going on in. Cleveland. It was not good and I think he might have lost control. The team I maybe he's just not as good as we think he is. I mean there's that possibility as well he threw. He put the ball in precarious positions several times last year. Turn the ball over. You know not to the point. Where James Winstons like dude? You gotTA stop doing it. But to the point where it's like okay. This is becoming a problem right so he turned the ball over a lot. Which stunted a Lotta drives I still on board with him. You Know Mayfield. As part of a trio or duo in in invest ball Because I think the possibility for him per outperforming drafts stop. Spot is pretty good. I just don't know if he gets to be. Hey is going to be a top ten guy. This year eight eighteen point eighteen point two points. Fantasy points a game last year. At the quarterback position is really bad. It given the you know in this this day and age this NFL where. You're passing for mega yards. Five Thousand Yard seasons or not out of the norm anymore. That's a really bad. And he had the offensive line. He had their ground game. He had the weapons. He had everything there right. I mean as in the second season I mean just to go the other direction I to me still inexplicable even though you have some explanations. I don't get Gilbert or Baker Mayfield. Which one for what purpose Fantasy Okay Dynasty. Read your. I'll redraft sorry And you're talking best ball again. I I assume I WANNA go with Mayfield. I mean I just you know. He's you don't like girl. Well I mean. He's he's a rookie. Mean number. One you don't be a roof cincy and who knows you know it's still whatever You don't care about the hands thing right. The fact that he is small hands a little bit. Oh you do yeah okay. This is interesting. I don't think it's all that interesting. When players like Russell Wilson who was a short guy has ten and ten plus inch big man? Crushes it so I mean I I do think hand size does matter? I mean gripping bigger ball by. He'll he joke around about it but You Know I. I think it matters to some extent. There doesn't increase. The bus. Possibility does a little bit. Yeah I think Akili Smith had eight inch chance. Oh did he really know? I don't know but I know he busted David. Klingler David Klingler. The number one overall pick for Cynthia quarter. I don't think there's number one overall top two or three that was mcnabb draft and I can't remember who went number one in that trap We just saw We're what we have the scouting combine here on in the Studio Nine. Three quarters inches. Nine one there. You Go We have the scouting combine Going on in the studio and we just don't interview with Joe Borough and he's got that that You know the the quote like the the Co close crop on the sides and on the back and longer hair on top as most of the kids do now kind of looks like. He's at a ginormous for had he looks like Max headroom remember. Max Headroom looks a little. He's a lot like him. Maybe reality maybe I don't really like 'cause over a look into meaner. Okay I'M GONNA be. There has to be a little honest about that. Yeah you're right about Giovanni Bernard when you when you throw him under the table for is poor ass and Maybe there's something to be said for that. Maybe there's something to reset for selling Jeans Dave. You know who else? I don't really like look into meters that Justin got adjusting from Oregon the quarterback Joe Justin Herbert for yeah how you pronounce her. Yeah yeah he just he looks like a surfer kind of like a you know he's he's he's skinny. He's six six like whatever. Yeah he's huge and he's tall. But he's just like nonchalance of them. Yeah which reminds me of Who's The quarterback that got drafted by Arizona He before Karma Rosen. Josh Rosen reminds me a little job attitude a little bit interesting Carolina Their Herbert. Actually there's been and this is something. This past season before draft season took over that he wasn't the greatest leader wasn't the greatest teammate at at Oregon so I can kind of see that just like mood. You're after he also rushed for three touchdowns in the Rose Bowl against Wisconsin. Oh Well Rush. Another yeah. final question. Then we'll we'll call it good job era one. Oh one in a rookie super flex is that a mistake. I think that's actually a good thing. I mean even though you can take. Let's say Jonathan Taylor or something like that. If it's the quarterback that's going number one overall and it's super flex to me that unless for some reason you really don't like Joe Burrow because it was hands and doors demeanor then maybe different. You don't you do. Why don't you do this if you're Cincinnati? You got all these picks you take borough one on one in the trade up and get Justin Jefferson at the end of the first round. Say Bring bring his college freed up receiver. Yeah you'd have to trade up you just go on the first row now and the end of the first round there at the tool one so that yeah that chance you drop food you know. There's not zero. Chance Zero Point Zero. I'm going to be on the hour. Let's take an interesting all right What's fair since you? You have an opinion All right let's do I I don't know what would be fair three one. I. I'll tell you what I was gonNA say five two one two four two one four two one and I'll give you four to one out that Justin Jefferson for fire is a first round pick for for five or and I got five five five paying twenty okay. I got five Pentagon paying twenty on. Oh Man I love Justin Jackson the packers. That's going to do it for a show tonight. Ladies and Gentlemen I WANNA thank Brian Harris Dave Brubeck. Fcc Rob Rice. And of course each and every one of you will be back. Live next Friday at ten nine central eight twenty six or making an appearance on the show. It's twelve fifty number three dynasty champ. Brent studebaker who's going to be our guest. Regatta chat rooms working all right. Hopefully it will be at ten nine central next to remember Jim. Saiful is going to be on the highest slowdown next week. That will drop on. Rove is Thursday morning. Bright and early so make sure you're checking that out that will be a great episode as well can get in on that main event early bird and save one hundred dollars right now until June first It's GonNa be the most biggest price events ever had almost four million dollars in there just waiting for you My APP DOT COM is where to get in on that. Also that's the place where you can try best ball slam. He could pick up a dynasty orphan today as well options on their get registered. Three weeks now celebrate the scouting combine by predators. Honesty leaks your combine. Officially now this has been another episode of the high stakes fantasy football hour presented by my F- F- pc dot com was broadcast. Live and heard around the world. Eric and David will be back next week with more analysis interviews and advice from guest much smarter than they are. Thanks for listening. And we'll talk with you again next week even newer so we'll tore me at east toward country wanting to run the team time with studio all right so honestly how much you know about. Justin Jefferson Now A ton. Okay I know you. He's Wrote a lot of them. I think he's a wide receiver. Checks all the boxes. What were you making this back? Four to one's good Yeah like a hundred eleven catches last year. Like thirteen hundred yards had a great combine. He had a great time. The forty was the surprise. The people in think he's GonNa run as fast as he did. So we'll see if he could be a top fifteen. Possibly I mean whatever. It's so hot I think right. I think he's more likely to be a top fifteen picks than to fall the second round but again we talked about the wide receiver depth. All it takes is P. teams falling in love with other guys and maybe he slipped so you could be right there. We'll make fun of Wade. Hofu is completely in there That would be a good point and it's getting later here so we got to end it talking next Friday.

I'm your host as always shame. Clancy coming through from the wonderful putting your nation. Radio podcasts are now we are in the doldrums of the offseason. Yes on june. I was yesterday mcgrane this wednesday afternoon early wednesday afternoon. June second so host. June i wanna moves can happen in nfl. This might be the end of like officially officially officially finally jason. Jason alshon jeffery. Me jackson. Being off the eagles so we will see that move. Probably coming in the coming days and maybe next week. But i'm not gonna really talk about real stuff right now. Obviously there's not a lot going on. It could do a podcast. Like are the eagles in a trade for julio jones. no eagles aren't going to trade religion. But i liked that. Actually maybe you wanna around. Jalen hurts with as much talent as possible. Chance to be true franchise quarterback and they will have possibly three first round picks. Back next year i know Older but still even the most dominant receiver in the league. I doubt hall of famer guy your comment and if you pair him with a jalen reiger who has your slot. Receiver can have that pressure. Offer him after a up and down fairly disappointing. Rookie season know is injury. Blake but still disappointing. And then you have demonte smith who comes in at number two receiver and still would be the most dynamic rookie receiver. Since sean for the eagles would be transformative. Now if it's going to happen no but you know it's the smartest move no but i'm here for the valves here to have some fun. That's probably that goes right into our topic for today. So i do a weekly mailbag feature for bijan. I'm sure if you're listening to this podcast. If you like this week it's the weapon. Next mailbag obviously named after the great brian jenkins mchugh huge wolverines in x. men marbles and of course brian dawkins is my favorite of all time. Ricky watters sneaky tupelo for the eagles. Yeah we can talk. I don't have ricky waters on my less top ten. Let's my boy a donkey over here comment here. So when i do these number coordinates on youtube so i keep bugging out there. I do go live on youtube. I don't really like publicize it just. Because i want to get it over with and do it in know. I'm not making this live podcast. It's not live. Podcast live video. It's like i'm doing this post draft or when thursday night before the eagles play on sunday navy during the regular season as getting more into this youtube stuff. We will do that. But today i am talking about but i wanna plug last podcast. Two weeks ago. Where sixers alan iverson wearing another alan iverson jerseys t shirts today representing the sixers who are attempting to close out their first round series against the wattage in wizard smart. Today's top again for the vibes. Coolest eagles ever inspired as we're talking about mail bag. A mailbag question. I got this week. Said is jalen hurts. The coolest eagles by rapper. No i mean. I'm obviously the big. John hurt scion. he's cool he's awesome. His leadership is is vibes is a ara is juice around. Him is is incredible but obviously slave started four games as an eagle. We can't really put him up there yet. Maybe if he has unbelievable season this year in proves to be the franchise quarterback ago. They're in the top ten of the top five but again as a huge jalen hurts guy. It's too early for this. So i made a quick ten eagle ragging for this. Obviously it's skewed skewers. A little newer. And i'm kind of having guys that the oldest guy have played in the early to mid eighties into the late eighties I'm twenty seven years old. So i do well-represented buddy ryan era that whole era eagle all and also obviously become a fan since i was six years old Last twenty or so years. But let's take it off number ten could be a little bit of a controversial choice is someone who's dynamic exhilarating. You'll never forget. Washington play football but there are some awful things that are understandably taking away from that. So michael vick. You didn't have the job fighting stuff. i think i'm a big dog lover. No lock you out there. Who absolutely hate him. Because of it i think he went to jail and serve his time in actually served a little bit more of a sentence than normal because of his status as an nfl player. Sobs someone who could've been in the top five bay but that kind of knocks down for me but michael vick thousand ten as captivating as a talent as i've ever seen the national football we have the money late massacre in washington. We have him coming in relief against green bay in week. One we have the iconic miracle at the new meadowlands michael vick to do it. All is maybe the most talented player. We've ever seen the thing where you know any regan to end lateness. If him novak vic was the first of all and jobs from one operating goes. I don mcnabb and mud saying we should have michael vick don mcnabb but if you read was to have michael vick earliest career the same way that he has patrick mahomes. Now i don't think it's crazy that we're going down in history. Sang michael vick's best quarterbacks of all time that's captivating but tony was. It really just lasted one season. He started some in twenty eleven and that was up. He's in the got her. Vince young finished up year. Twenty twelve disastrous season. Nick foles ends up finishing the year. Then twenty two thirds in that first chip kelly. Game that michael. That was a part of it was unbelievable. The going speed speed speed and they proton of points on washington at first half. Obviously that season ultimate gets known for nick foles than anything need comes in relief after vic again gets injured so it was a short lived period of excitement but how exciting was to have michael vick and midnight green. I guess also kelly-green that his first game that wasn't his first union nine But is no first moment really taking over as quarterback beagles when we won in twenty ten. They were those throwback jerseys to honor to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the nineteen sixty. Nfl championship jingle last time. They were kelly green jersey shore. Lots of fans out. There are still clamoring for the eagles to bring up that number ten. We have our first player from the eagles to team on this lost. Jason peters jason. Peters brian on my favorite player ever may be the most dominant eagles blair. I've seen in my life Assure fire i outta hall of famer best left haflinger for while just a complete bs. I don't know if i could say that word. I'm weird. With nurses on your. I don't know what i can get away with societas. That is one mean an effort. Just you think the vibes. He had an answer seizing yes. He didn't play the superbowl but that picture of him on the plane. Ride back from minnesota with a lombardi trophy. You know Next to him on the plane countered around having a cigar. Cool guy and then you have on the role parade. He's we're on throwback ryan dolphins Just incredible and those are off the field things more secondary things but obviously an incredible player. A fearsome layer are the best lyman in eagles. History a guy that will go down. All-time eagles grade. It's unfortunate the way last. Handful of years kallis careers. Flattered started peters. His career played out since a super bowl where people are knowing him as a guy who was hanging around are the paying in this money. Why are they keeping them around. They started him over andrei dillard he gets hurt. Every place he has false starts this this. I get that and i feel bad. I wished peter's retired already. Because i think it takes a hit on his ultimate legacy not for me but for the eagles general public especially fans are younger than me. I'm twenty seven just turned twenty seven in may Some people don't really remember his earlier than saw off of you know first time first team all pro player and just as dominik alignment we've seen and fed off in really one of the most dominant wyman and in nfl history to be franken. I think i've told this story before. But it might short-lived time as a real or and then a reporter and people will say look going blue check mark on twitter ear right manner. I'm going to report guy who writes. Internet do social media work. I blog i have fun. That's my personality. That's my brand. I make a living doing. It is what it is. I'm not. I'm not jimmy. I'm not walter cronkite over ear. But in the twenty fourteen seasons chips second season. I was interning for the philadelphia daily news. Bon cop it. Was you know life changing internship that open all doors for me as a writer in the online media industry. And if it's not for that internship from that were am nelson thankful for. That was the first eagles practice attending Sitting there and i watch you know you're waiting for the players off the field and get into lock. Made the practice Locker room you can get the coach players. Utah this play. There's big scrums around the most famous players than maybe a smaller profile is the way nasa guy one on one questions are which i've done before and the first player off the field is jason peters and he has his shoulder pads helmet off enough. You played football in grade school or high school. You know you know you throw your helmet in between your shoulder pads practice walking off field and he had he has there and he's job and often he has this tattered undershirt on must wear for every practice. That's good luck charm dating back years and years when he was in college or played for the bills. Whatever it was and it was so ripped and tattered that looked like he was wearing a cape like he was a superhero or maybe more of an anti hero given how nastily fiercely was on the field and he was jogging off and i know he's not he's not this he's not less than this but it felt like in that moment he was like six nine three hundred eighty five pounds. Just this massive hole king human being and man. I was just in awe. I've i've seen joel embiid locker rooms. I've interviewed a lot of players. I've interviewed so who will be on our list later in randall cunningham. I've interviewed lot of players my time especially when i was working for the daily news. A doing some from us Talked a lot of players rumbles over the players. Vote sports cole. Hamels whatever. I have never been starstruck ever except in that moment with jason. Peters were that guy was just like this guy. I watched him growing up on sunday. Sees this dominant president. He looks like it could just step on my own. Six foot tall. He could just step on my chest in obliterate me without even really trimbe ultimate coolness. What a cool player. I hope younger eagles fans people that are Twenty seven really realize how important he was the eagles being consistently good from the andy. Reid our through. The doug peterson ever now. The knicks yanni era bush from instruments player number eight. We have someone for my childhood running back. Brian westbrook westbrook hops onto the scene. And what would that be the two thousand two season. He's a part of that. The original three headed monster that the eagles had between juice daily staley ball powder and westbrook himself and westbrook's this local product he played for villanova's people have gone over time fans of you'll number basketball opposite cling to this guy he has that legendary punt return against the giants open at the midlands number two That palmer return touchdown and sealed the win for the eagles no instinct classic moment for the eagles. I have bad. Why don't have it but my parents basement in south philly. They have the him. Running down the sideline with the ball on the punter diving and missing. Sign my westbrook hanging up in kind of a. I don't like the word man cave but basically like the sports dead in the basement of my childhood home so just a cool player. Stolas involved in was media. He hosts co-host or frequent gusts air. When stayed on the adam west coast show. Podcast return to sports bleacher. Report to adam who is a recurring guest. He's been on the podcast a couple of times. Maybe i'll have atom on before the starts. Huge jalen hurts guy. Like myself of westwood was unbelievable and i think back to that two thousand three season where he really established himself as the eagles starting running back going. Forwards daily was gone bucket in reserve role and became this captivating player. Who was just as good as a receiver as he was as a running back and that was the year the eagles i unveil black alternate jersey so everyone wanted a kid. So i'm i'm nine going on ten however i was and every kid wants a black jersey and the hardest jersey to get in town. Any sport was a black. Brian westbrook in non-privileged. Not that i got one for christmas. I thank my parents for that. Very lucky and fortunate that they could give that to me but Westbrook at that peak in two thousand three. He was the coolest eagles in town. Every kid's favored so captivating so electric so dynamic player who would be like some players in. This would be even better now. Today's nfl than wasn't thousand three. Yes any real head of the curve on this west coast utilizing running backs as a receiver but now he would have had catches seasons where he had not caught nine balls but now Would be electric. Even more so christian mccaffrey. Tsai play would be as good as christian. Be the number one player drafted in fantasy football. If two thousand three. Brian westbrook was coming into the twenty twenty one season so all in love with the world for westbrook ray player happen. You dislike brian westbrook now number seven. I don't want to cause a scene with this. He is my favorite athlete of all time. He's awesome he's the best. I have stuff framed with him all around me and my parents home here in my my apartment ear is not a slight. 'cause i'm still ranks one. The coolest players have raised my favorite eagle ever. We did a poll during the pandemic last summer for bgn ranking ones favored. Eagle ever running on twitter. Doing this bracket had sixty four eagles players. He won on. Get not a slight brian. Goblins number seven is awesome but just happened to be players. I think are cooler than him as dominant as he was on the field I loved out of weapon. X persona daddy has just. What can you save out. Brian dawkins has been set hall of famer. Everyone's favorite player growing up. And you know just someone who just speaks to you. The way he again has become such a vocal proponent of mental health awareness as someone who struggled with mental health issues throughout my life and someone who has bipolar disorder. I've written about at different times for urination over the last handful of years Dawkins without a doubt and inspiring presence for me. Someone who. I absolutely adore. I absolutely love I'm going to be buried in a brian doc. Insurers and dolphins talked about this. You could look it up online. I think was around the time he was getting announced for the hall of fame at novacare air complex and top out. His relationship with eagles fans in super emotional guy super emotional. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Dolphins were his heart. That's why i absolutely loved the guy and he's talking about how you know the thing that gets to him. the most the thing that feels most connected. I'm getting choked up saying because he's getting showed in the video is he saying you know the thing that means the most to me. Is that when people tell him choked to his relatives. people's relatives get buried in his jerseys. And you know what kind of Honor must be as just an athlete to have that transformative effect on people that they're going to get buried in your clothing again. you know. i don't know when. I'll die if it's ten years from now. Twenty forty sixty eighty whatever. It may be I will be laid down. Brian jersey and have this quote are i'd soon i'm saying i did that. Poll for bleeding your nation for the when dolphins kind of wrote a profile about him. I'm just talking about my love for him. Helpfully was mental health stuff and my coach. Brian dolphins my favorite athlete of all time. His ferocious play was pre game hype to his obsession with wolverine to his public battle with mental illness. Brian is everything i ever wanted from an eagle and he quickly replied there are non that has is a real walk the face of the earth. That's considered strong. That didn't start off at a place of weakness or lap. It physically mentally spiritually in most cases financially most choose talk pass and grow stronger over time. What a guy. Brian dawkins philadelphia legend. Maybe might go down as people's favourite philadelphia of all time. But they're just players who i think. Cooler more dynamic as much energy dawkins brought him still had this thing shroud of mysterious around him. He wasn't someone who's in the face the press. He was physically. It was all these things but these other players have a different type of la trinity to them that separates in from them. Whereas dawkins is again my goal ever bug. We're talking about this cool. Is this ed factor at the difference in and that was cool about this for not not intended but is obviously very subjective thing if you have. Brian dawkins ranking schools. You'll ever. i'm not gonna argue with them again.

He was lived short but one that will live forever. Eagles fans hearts terrell. Owens chiyo a two thousand for most impactful. Acquisition and full of sports since moses malone the nineteen eighty season just changed everything until twenty seventeen. I had never experienced a sports season. Like the two thousand four eagles. I was ten years old. I was in fifth grade. Nothing could be more captivating than that. And from the first game in philadelphia plying your giants. He has those three touchdowns. He's celebrating. his all. The touchdown dances all throughout the season. Staying on the dallas star in the end zone when they go and beat dallas on monday night. Football all of these things. It's an incredible incredible season that again. It's it's an astounding thing brian Geochemical philadelphian. I'm ten years old and that's something that will live in my mind forever just discovered this you see by showed on the camera. I don't know how good will work. I had this exer-. I found a just because it's sticks saw forgetting all for the season it's a picture of former sixers mascot Hip hop and teo holding a custom. Sixers jersey opposes on instagram. The guy runs john ss answering music on my musings. If you make this jersey. I will buy instantaneously. Can you pretty cool right. Yeah but see. Oh no one owned the city like teo did in two thousand and four. Maybe never before certainly never sin again. We've nick foles when a super we have elvis things mcfaul on this list. Nick foles is the most important philadelphia athem of all time but he is decidedly very uncalled ersan at the same time. That's what makes him such a special figgers that this is dorky. West texas guy comes in here and comes to this northeast city this hard and hardened city this dorky guy. He wears those webbed sneakers or whatever where they have the different tolls comes in here and leaves everyone with a lifetime of memories from just a few short weeks in january and february. Twenty eight so nick fan but definitely not on this list. Co again just just had had the city in the palm of his hand like no athletes. since maybe iverson's one. Since i mean everyone loved rehauled. Aim twenty ten but like it wasn't that same thing it's different when it's the eagles in his persona is obviously a lot different than the one doc halliday at sergio his persona his electricity the vibes. He gave off his the way he talked to the press. The way he's showed all these things is one of those players that if he's not teeny probably a number to be on your team. He's the best guy ever before the draft. I bought some of geos wine. It's eighty-one vinyl. I think is the name of the brand really good not a huge wine guy but i got support. My guys love. It owns a winery. Now i have to ask to be a factor on the list. Dry owns a wanner. Good wine isn't this isn't a plug. This is an ad this is. Ken would be your thing. So he's thing. I disliked his wine and again. Gotta love t. Oh so. i'm going to give him little from the bleachers boost. Number four a guy who had two stints and thought off. Via as merrill reese would say sean jackson the sean miracle at the meadowlands before the super bowl one of the craziest thing that ever seen the eagles. Whether it's his rookie season you know absolutely absolutely terrorizing the dallas cowboys. The way played them three thousand eight. Nfc championship game The punt return against giants in america new meadowlands way played against dallas in two thousand ten. No his first game back in philadelphia. And what was that the twenty nine these obviously his second tenure seconds philadelphia did not go well. Injury pled goes out with a whimper. Redid have again. They're a pass with jalen hurts Against dallas cashier opposite eagles in the game. But in jalen hurts. Dente with this sean. Jackson i felt like it was my my teen years connecting with my middle-aged aged i was running around my apartment of so again. Eagles didn't win the game. I didn't to the vision. They ended up being a bad loss. Hurston plates you well. But he was his worst game. You played all season the same time. Magical moment. And no sean. Jackson is one of those players. He's we talk about like flashbulbs. Lose so in psychology in college like most people was in a seven hundred person. Lecture hall did not pay engine while the non-study wells not environment conducive to learning for me specifically But they talk about flash bulb memories. These things where you know what did you. what did you do. who are you with. What did you eat for dinner the day before the miracle the nederlands. You have no idea to because he would remember that. Can you remember where you more who you're with what you're doing during the miracle at the new meadowlands during the shawn's first game back in philadelphia. We have two touchdowns against washington his old team if you can remember all those things. Sean jackson is the personification of a flash bulb. Memory for philadelphia eagles. Fix sean has given me so many memories and again. His first tenure ended in a murky terms secondhand. Here doesn't really go too well. But ultimately the sean Eagles legend will be in the eagles hall of fame. Be the greatest threat. Nfl history and just a guy who's given every eagles fan so many memories and the bravado he cartons of the way he's finding himself up hyping the eagles team up before that punt return against the giants in two thousand ten. What mortgage about the guy. Incredible number three second super bowl champion on this list. Jason kelsey warrior plays throughout. Injuries has been the anger of the eagles offense of line for a decade towards them. Time keeps going back. Keeps them back keeps grinding and no matter who's under center behind him underneath him. However you want to say it just consistent accidents a guy who should be in the hall of fame one day and the main reason these up here obviously part of the knows a great guy the community as twitter inside joke but just someone who breathes philadelphia energy that we all love is iconic legendary. Everyone say super bowl parade speech will go down and philadelphia or dot photocopy sports lore just philadelphia lore period as one of the biggest thing that's ever happened in the city. The biggest thing since the the declaration of independence. Obviously i'm joking but it was time not really so jason kelsey short simple that speech mike lombardi. You clown go skram jason. Kelsey number three number. Two top two guys to is much major to god. That never saw planning uniform. I think they're that special number. Two jerome brown played up the you during their peak. Jimmy johnson era when they were wearing army fatigues getting off the plane before planning a bowl. Game jerome brown. Reggie was obviously the best defensive player. He goes history. Maybe the best defensive player in nfl history drum felt like the heart and soul team. There's obviously a mystique You know mythological aspect of him that this is our that comes with his untimely early passing. And it's so unfortunate the guy who could have been a hall of famer in his own right but that just adds to the the are around him. What made him such a captivating presence here guys. Like ruben frank where some of these older reporters and writers talk about drone brown. You know they say he was the greatest locker room presence african terms of guy who just so full of energy so full of life a funniest guy out there but at the same time was dominant absolute. Pure dominance again. No not reggie white but again if he has a long career maybe he is a guy that could have been hall of famer and we always think about bring it home for jerome and it's unfortunate. The eagles done that in the nineties. But i think it was so poetic that eagles won the super bowl. I believe it was the day before jerome. Bronze birthday that inflationary sector brown birthday room brown birthday every four two. They won the super bowl on his fifty third birthday. They want zero fifty two on mr de third birthday. They finally brought it home. I want to mitchell every every year. Mitchell us crazy revolt number went because the like never that when i got jerome browner's the first word was during the super bowl and you know it felt so poetic. I took a picture of the jersey on twitter before the game. For i put a lot i would just bring it home. Bring it home for him brandon. Graham a guy who. I should have had on this list but i forgot because i made the less hastily. Don't be mad at me brandon graham. It's make a top eleven In there somewhere sounds like brandon graham. Yeah messed one of. It is what it is. So get mad in like two days when the posted remember. How should have adopted in there. The brandon graham Legendary figure will guy the way he snyder eighty-eight. Va in the chat comments right now. Just down just reminded me of him. Sell my bad beachie. Whatever it's it's june second and talking about the. it's not going to be perfect than branding. Branding earn speech. Sure why not put its pencil. Gram in at two point. Five redo on the last jason kelsey. Still three jerome brownstone to two point five analyst brandon. Graham underdog figure gets hate in. This town is not earl. Thomas visit his first offensive line. Coach hates chip. Kelly plays out of position of four defense comes back. Keeps grinding keeps grinding. You know the best interview. I've ever had during my time has reported the most electric personality i've seen in eagles from again. I haven't been eagles documents on in my life. But when i was there during chiwetel years no one had this gravitas around him. Like brand graham mitchell. Big play in the history of philadelphia. Sports rand grand forever. Nego legend keep grinding creek grinding ron. Everyone needs to hit in this town. Now he will forever be a legend in somehow. It seems to keep getting better better aids making his first full appearance and twenty twenty after being drafted in twenty. Seven guy who i hope can finish his grand philadelphia. Know guy who can succeed going into his mid thirds brandon. Graham love you forever. He's officially on the list. He's official he's two point. Five two point five drum brown two point. Five brand graham three jason kelsey. Three overs revolting. Minutes let's snipes you got on that snide me literally you snide me. So now he's on the lists someone else and forget like carson wentz. I dunno malcolm jenkins could have been on here for sure especially with the social activism. Stuff is incredible Some who the other guys fletcher cops but the subject. The thing brand graham announced this is a top eleven. I guess brennan grams two point file. Make mistakes. I'm not perfect. I'm human and that's that's one of the bleachers. I'm just a dumb fan ranting about the eagles. Israel's number one randall. Cunningham a guy. I didn't see playing eagles in as an eagle but from whoever i talked to older eagles fans my dad family friends twitter friends. Whoever it is You know. Michael vick before michael vick played you know. Most of his Obviously had his best season ever in nineteen ninety eight with minnesota. Vikings playing with chris carter randy moss his old teammate. Chris carter but zone even more so than vic. If he played now he'd be a hall of famer he's on a whole thing famer now he's kind of a all very good guy. He's been on a couple different times actually interviewed him. Once what is it you know. What's the casino columbus boulevard delaware. Whatever parks whatever. I interviewed him there once when he was halting balanced when he fourteen wasn't going to say he deserves to be being hall of fame. Didn't wanna say he revolutionized that game. But i kinda tried to put those words in his mouth because i really believe he did he. Bill of pd. Better than lamar jackson played now. The human highlight reel we to steal dominique wilkins nickname forum has the play against a harry carson on monday night. Football back in the day plan against the giants. All these crazy plays just upon the. What is the nine nine yard touchdown against the bills in buffalo. He's unbelievable is unbelievable. I skipped number six on my list again. I'm all over the place. Because i was so hansard alone. So we're going to cross off. We're going to redo the less at the end. This guy i like. I had my quick on air because it was time as an announcer reading the list. This is live. I'm doing it live. We're having fun here. It's june second on a wednesday afternoon. Sixers play tonight.

Lg branly gown but running round and still going to rob with random number one. No eagle has ever looked cooler. then randall cunningham. We're in white. Sure is in those silver pants.

Like the rocket randall. rocket. Randall cunningham has the ultimate weapon. Sports illustrated cover iconic doing that. Kind of like tim. Tebow trump John throw another Monday night madness. Now randall cunningham. The eagles smashed the cowboys. Who who wouldn't love that. And then the one reason space rocket randall cunningham. That's something i want on my wall one that framed and signed in my office and be donkey here. Wait they said that. No no god. We're doing this live in podcast. Smallness is there. Oh my god.

Which Teams Closed the Gap on their Division Leader?

"All move the sticks listeners at the NFL draft may be over but you can still contribute to make draft a thon charity donations for covert nineteen relief efforts at NFL dot com slash relief that's NFL dot com slash relief and now move the sticks with Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks. What's up everybody? Welcome to move the six presented by Fedex. Dj In bucky. Back here as we continue to look back on the draft that took place over the weekend buck and now getting a chance to. I don't know about you but for me. One of my favorite exercises. Pull UP OUR LADS DOT com go to the depth charts and see all these new rookies sprinkled in and you get a feel for what these overall teams look like. That's that's kind of what we're doing today. This is great opportunity to kind of look back and to also talk about what we say is always the theme of when you're building your team. The best way to build a champion. Is You have to build it to win the division and then once you win the division get into the playoffs and so everyone has to know what's around them. What the division rivals doing what the top teams have in place in why they were able to win and then they have to make counter moves within the framework and philosophy. What they believe in to catch up to those rob so it'd be great to kind of take a look at all eight divisions talked about the division winners and the teams that are best position to overtake them. Going forward all right. Well let's jump in here and look at a division that's changed for the first time and Gosh twenty years right with Tom. Brady leaving New England. Now you still have New England who has owned this division with the best defense in the NFL last year although there's been some other Ostra changes but but when you look at the landscape in that division and look at the other teams based off what we've seen now through the offseason who has made the most ground up on the Patriots team to put conversation would be to buffalo bills the buffalo bills one or a team. That is a winning team. They are a playoff team Sean McDermott Brandon. Beane desk staff did a really good job of building. What I call a blue-collar roster with a bunch of worker bees and what they've done in the off seasons they've added to that because as good as they were they still need a little more popular more sizzle particularly on offense. So then you go and make a big trade and get Stefan digs You Team Him with Cole. Beasley John Brown. You now have a wide receiver core deck and threat and you not only horizontally but vertically and because Stefan digs in route to able to make plays and do it and I think adding more pop and punch to the running game I know. A single t ram four yards and had really a nice yards per carry average but they still needed a banger. I think they got one with ZAC. Moss and so when you look at all of the pieces that added on offense to go with what I think is a solid defense that they've also added some solid pieces in Asia Canessa too. I just think this team is well positioned to compete with the Patriots. Even though there's something in me still believes the Patriots will be there at the end because the pages are always there Dan now they somehow find a way. Be there at the end. I I like what you said their book. I also think when you look at their draft I can find kind of a theme. They took players. That were great on tape. They did not get carried away with testing numbers And they took guys at a physical edge. You mentioned Moss. They also got. Aj Up in NASA from Iowa which I thought was a great value. Pick where they're able to get him in the second round. I thought that was tremendous He FITS IN CANADA WITH THEIR CULTURE. And how they play the physicality the production. And then I think from the receiver standpoint you bring defined digs and you look at their core that they had with John Brown Coal Beasley. The one thing. They didn't really have with size. So you go out and get a Gabe Davis from UCF. Who's a vertical stretch player but has some size to them? Then you come back Isaiah Hodgson's who I compare it kind of is like a poor man's alshon Jeffery so you're building some size to round out that basketball team as we like to call it the way that we like to talk about a DJ. You talked about like there. There's a theme and whatever and I think the good teams to good teams. You can close your eyes and in vision to kind of players. They typically like I think we're beginning to see that theme come out in the Buffalo Bills. I think when you look at the number of drafts and a number of players that they've picked up two guys they've signed and how they play. When I keep bringing up blue-collar worker bees no nonsense not a lot of fanfare. I think that's kind of who they are. I think Sean McDermott Brandon beane. They have a clear idea of who they want on their team. How they WANNA play and the coach. They've created in western New York and I think it is a very rough and rugged Let's roll US lease up. Let's go to work and get it done. And I think it has worked very very well for them as evidenced by what to playoff appearances in three years no doubt and real quickly just on the other teams. I thought the jets. They're nice job of trying to rebuild. This offensive line led by MCI. Beckton was going to be there. Left tackle for the next decade plus Khanna McGovern's a good center they've upgraded a lot of that offensive line Cameron Clark who they draft in the fourth round think has a chance to compete as a starter With Fan who they signed in In In Free Agency so they did a nice job of upgrading. That OFFENSIVE LINE. But when you look at the dolphins they had a bunch of resources. Well I think they're better just by the numbers they throughout it. Obviously you're gonNA need to To come along. We'll see when he gets the rains. I think this whole division got better as the Patriots. Come down I think you see these other teams come up but I do think that Buffalo's just ahead of those other two with where they were coming into the off season and I really like what they did. Yeah I will say this though about the Miami Dolphins and why the Miami Dolphins may be able to pop. The one thing that the Miami Dolphins have been able to do not just in the draft in free agency. They broad guys in to fit the style of play the day want to play. Getting Calvin Roy Bring in Bryant Barin Jones in They WANNA play man to man. They WANNA be multiple on defense. Now they have those players and we don't win to is going to get on the field but I think the underrated addition of Chan Gailey coming over because Jan gaily understands Ryan Fitzpatrick has been probably one of his biggest advocates. I think this offense might be a little more dynamic. It may have a different feel to it and also I'll say this if he does get his chance. Chan Gailey might be the perfect coach for him years ago. In Kansas City he had got from Coastal Carolina. Tyler thigpen they were one of the first teams to really run the spread and Rpo's and does things so Chan Gailey certainly has debt club in his bag. It'd be interesting to see how he uses it but this division should be very very competitive because I think all of these teams the Bills Digest Dolphins. They can definitely push the patriots especially with the pages have and Tom Brady anymore. Yay and and let's keep this train moving here buck. Let's get to the let's get to the AFC north. They should say the Baltimore Ravens. One of the things. I wanted to hit on with them but before we get to who can challenge them. I don't know if people have noticed this but the ravens have a little bit of a theme. We're kind of keeping on this whole theme idea. When they've had issues book they attack it with multiple picks so think about how they've had years of they drafted multiple tight ends hurston Andrews Last year we saw it with the wide receivers Hollywood Brown Miles Boykin this year. We saw it with the linebackers Patrick Queen and Maliki Harrison. Like they see an issue and they don't just say okay. We're GONNA throw one you know. One resource added the they attack it in multiple ways. I remember when I was there. We drafted Ben Grubbs Marshall. Janda we wanted to get better in the interior. We have two guys at the same position. I don't know how many teams really do that. I think they say okay. We have a need here one. Check that box. Let's go to the next need. They they say this is what we need to fix. We're going to throw multiple resources at it. Well think of it this way. Dj We talk about the best teams. are able to hit maybe at a fifty percent clip particularly with their first round picks. Well if I double up I increase my eyes of getting at least one of those guys right and so it makes sense to devote multiple resources to that. I just left Green Bay and started working in Seattle when degree packers had a need because Randy Moss. It tore them up Wide Receiver Their quarterback match so they three corners the following year. Hoping they're one of those guys were Pop. We've seen the New England. Patriots were in a different division devoted resources to two tight ends in this year's draft class. They did the same thing when it got Aaron Hernandez Rob Gronkowski years ago. And so. That's what the great teams do. They understand the wings but they don't put it just a one player to fill it. They try to increase their eyes by expanding multiple picks to do it. All right so let's get to the team that we think is made the most ground up on them and I feel like I don't want to start the Cleveland browns hype train again because we feel like we do this all the time but buck. I gotta be honest when when I look at how they've addressed this roster you bring over Kevin's too fancy and that offense that he ran a Minnesota that's comes from Shannahan lineage. Right and then go out and you draft Jed Rick Wills. Who is the most ready to play tackle in this year's draft? Who's really good player? Who can fit with what they want to do in the zone. Run Game You go out and even the fifth round getting Nick Harris the backup JC trader. Who is a good player? They signed Jack. Conklin of free agency. They've remade that offensive line. Then you go out and sign Austin Hooper who's atop tight end in free agency you draft Harrison Bryant who some felt you might be. One of bucket was a top tied into the draft if not top one or top two or three tight ends in the draft they bring in. Andy genevieve which the fullback which I can never remember IANOVICH agenda Vich. I always get that wrong. So apologies if I mess that up but I just feel like this. This off season has been okay Baker excuses. No more we've got you a play. Caller that fits you. We've got you an offensive line. That's better we've got you tight ends. Which are quarterbacks best friend we can be multiple? We can do anything you want to do. But now it's on you. Well absolutely I mean if you look at the last two years. What has been committed to him? I mean there are no excuses. I mean you have other junior Jarvis Landry. You have three tight ends. Because they extended the option to David Joke. Three tight ends like think about that. Like to high end titans and joke who and offer and then you go and draft another guy who should definitely get on the field. You're running back nick job. Yeah the Kareem Hunt Too. Yeah I mean like I mean it is a dream. If you can't get it done in this situation it'll never be done by the player and I just think as you're looking at this division. There are two ways that you can attack and close the gap on the Baltimore. Ravens won you have to be as physical if not more physical than them on both sides of the ball because what the Ravens and what the teams that have one division have traditionally done. They flex their muscles in the trenches. They beat you up. They take you to the championship rounds of the fight and they eventually knock you out so you have to have a team that in the late stages of the year you can go toe to toe with those physical teams within a division. I think the Browns have done that. And so they're definitely in the mix. I think the Pittsburgh steelers are well-positioned. A lot of it would depend on the health of Ben Rothlisberger I think they made significant strides last year. Just with their defense and you can look at their off-season moves issue without taking into consideration the midseason trade Mika Fitzpatrick bringing him in having him play like at a level that was almost defensive player of the year worthy Those teams are well positioned but right now the Baltimore Ravens. You talk about man. Did the best getting better to risk in Richard. They certainly have put themselves in a position to be very very difficult to overtake. Then I think the Cincinnati bengals look Joe Boroughs going to have a roller coaster. Ride a rookie as they all do about. There's hope they're going for the future. I thought they had a great draft. One of the best drafts from the bengals. We've seen in a long time. It's been a while since they've drafted a pro bowl player buck. I think you gotta go back to Tyler effort to find the last pro player that they've drafted. I think they've got a chance to have some pro bowlers pop out of this group. Oh I think so and I have a late developing crush Shona Logo Wilson in terms of what should be. I think they need to hand over the keys to the defense to him. But you brought up a great point. Maybe it was yesterday on path. We talked about that. Three young linebackers that can grow grow together. That rarely happens where you can get young core. That can play together and serve as your nucleus for longtime the teams that have been able to come to navigate impor- that off have been the successful teams for a long time because chemistry continuity matters. All right let's get to the south here and the Houston Texans. Who were a team that got a lot of attention here in the off season after the? Dra Hopkins Trade Buck but when you look at first of all looking at this team And then looking. Who's closing the gap on them? Obviously the Tennessee. Titans right there with him last year But you've got the colts and the jags were pretty Pretty busy this offseason as well. So your thoughts on the Texans and then your thoughts on the team. That's closed the gap so I think this division is undergoing a philosophical makeover This is the vision that in the past like the teams that won it were finesse. Throw it around the yard. It was more cute than than punishing and Nasty or whatever now this division is changing right before us and I think a lot of changes not driven by the Texans but by the titans the titans run to the playoff changed the way I think these other teams have had to adjust the way they wanna play and even though the Texas Division winning that we're talking about I think Tennessee's run had more impact you have to have a way to deal with Derrick Henry and the overall physicality and toughness of the titans and so when I look at the moves that were made even Houston had to kind of changed their style a little bit they go and get a running back and we can debate the merits of David Johnson. Or whatever but I think bill. O'brien was trying to make his team a little tougher a little more physical by having a back that can be an every down back. They get Brandin. Cooks and cooks gives us a speed. He has a concussion. Issues that you have to worry about you lose De'andre Hopkins but I think what they're trying to do is hand his team to the Shawn Watson and really make it his team in the Locker Room. The Titans we talk about adding strength strength in. I don't know what kind of player as Ahah Wilson is but he plays a style that is kind of in line with how they WANNA play. They WANNA mall embroiled in kind of Mash. The line of scrimmage. That is what he's best at. I don't know if he's necessarily a first round talent but the way that he plays fists with how they WanNa play and so you can understand it and then on defense. They knew they needed to get upgrade at corner. You Lose Logan Ryan you've ringing. Christopher Christopher Fulton plays to the potential that we've seen throughout his career at Lsu he certainly can help them give them a high end corner that can match up with some of the receivers into division. Yeah I thought. They got some first round caliber players outside the first round. So that's that's always the goal and they did a nice job there. I would look at the Indianapolis Colts though and a couple of different things when you go quarterback upgrade which Philip rivers is healthy and protected. I think that's a clear upgrade for them with the quarterback position. And then we talk about pass rush. Can you get more pass? Rush the two biggest things in the game right now. So you get improved quarterback play deforest. Buckner comes in as one of the Best Interior Pass rushers so I love what they did during the free agency period. Now you don't have a first round pick but you come back in the second round you get Michael Pittman and Jonathan Taylor. You get a little more firepower for your offense to Surround T. Y. Hilton Company. So you've got a good offensive line. You've got a solid veteran quarterback. You've added some weapons in the Backfield as well as out. Wide improve the pass rush. I think it's a pretty complete off season here for Chris. Ballard and the colts and I think this is a this is a team that could very easily win this division. Oh absolutely because remember. Two years ago they were able to make a playoff run In two years ago the common denominator was they had a real steady eddie run game and they were able to throw a ball effectively off. Play action with Philip Rivers one. I know that he's GonNa respect right because they have a previous relationship. Also noted frank right will be able to be honest with them with where he is in his career and how they need to play to make sure that he plays at his best and I think we see the theme big offensive issue multiple renting bags. That can run inside big physical receiver. Michael Pittman that's like the big receivers that Philip rivers has always been comfortable throwing to doing this time with the charges. And then it's just about Philip rivers down the back and taking care of the ball if he takes care of the football and they play the style of play that they wanNA play offense elite which is running a little balance. They're going to be in the mix and they're gonNA be a problem for people because he's a veteran. Who KNOWS HOW TO WIN Games? That's going to be a fun division. That's going to be a competitive division last one in the AFC the AFC west Kansas City. They're the champs buck and I think you can make case. They might even be better next year and so the challenge is going to be. How do you close the gap on them? I like what these other teams did but man. That's a tough gap to close. Yes a tough kept a close because I will say this and I've said this since the time that they moved on from Kareem Hunt. They weren't offense that was explosive despite playing with one hand behind their back. I think if people go back and look at how that offense operated when they had Kareem Hunt they're thinking about having a high in running back to go at Pat Mahomes and that offense is scary and now you get a lawyer who is who is a playmaker and Andy. Reid said he reminds them of. Brian. Westbrook will I remember vividly? What those Philadelphia Eagles offices look like. We're brand WESTBROOK. Controlling the offense as a remarkable multifaceted. Playmaker out of the Backfield. So now you give Pat Mahomes a guy that you can throw fifty to seventy five check swings screens to you can still handle the ball and run some of those inside delay draws and stuff that they like to run and you still have the track team on the outset. Good luck defensive. Coordinator is trying to stop them. I think the best thing that you can do is what the division is doing a man you know what we're going to load up and DJ playing a game madden. I one to forty wins to happen in the. Afc West Yeah. I think that that's a great point looking at Denver and Oakland specifically those two teams buck. They said okay. If you're going to have a four by one team then we're GONNA put together own four by one team. I mean look at look at Denver. Look at the speed. The Denver added in this draft. When you get Jerry Judy Caja Hamblur. Who by the way? Great picture of you. That was tweeted out. Coaching both those kids on the same Seven on seventeen with camakers Jalen Reagan. I mean goodness gracious book. That was uh that was a great shot. But when you look at those two guys you add another four four Titan in Albert oh to go with Noah fan now they they added in Free Agency. The already have a really good young back. They end up adding Melvin Gordon To go along with Philip Lindsey so this team has a lot of speed and a lot of playmakers in the raiders. I thought you saw them going out and getting rugs in a bunch of other white outs. they did a nice job of building up their speed as well. Yeah I think. They certainly build up their speed. I think they're more dynamic. And I think that is the common denominator you and I've talked about it. In the League. Speeds fi speed is important. But I think in this division where you have to play everybody twice the speed or lack thereof really really shows up in those games and so when I look at the raiders and I look at the charges and even the Broncos so much speed and explosiveness on both sides of the ball. You could tell that was the theme for the Broncos. There's another theme. That was also a play that we have discussed. When it comes to young quarterbacks and helping them are really mature quickly Let them play the first year and then the second year come and filling the guests for what you see that they need drew lock needed a better play. Call this so they go and get Pat Shurmur then they need it more weapons and skilled on the editor Jerry. Judy who's in the Polish route. Run to go with cordless sutton the big body playmaker cage. A handler gives them to vertical. Stretch player The running game all those things that they want to add to that. Getting a Melvin Gordon much better team better position now the trick will be it. I mean it's almost like looking at an arena ball game. I don't know how much time you paid attention to renewable and arena ball. You just trying to get one or two stops a game denver. The chargers and the raiders are just trying to stop the chiefs a handful of times and they gotta hope that their offices clicking at an efficient level. That's the only way that you can overtake them. Yeah and get into the chargers in free agency. They upgrade the offensive line. They make the trade for TRAE TURNER TO PUT HIM IN AT guard. You get Brian Blogs so they should be better up front on the offensive line but I feel like overall. They went the other way where you had Denver in an in Vegas talk about trying to outscore them. I thought the chargers a team that held mahomes under two hundred yards both times. They played them last year. Said you know what we think are scheme can match up with them. Maybe a little bit better than some of these other teams defensively. So we're going to try and keep the score down. They go out and make that trade for Kenneth Murray they bring in Lindvall Joseph to clog up the middle which is gonNa let Bosa and Ingram really rush off the edge I and they make the make the signing of Chris Harris To be able to play inside the nickel matchup in there. So now you start looking at this defense in sub situation where you can have drew tranquil. Who can fly at Linebacker Chinon Awo Su. Who can do a lot of different things? Rusher drop Kenneth Murray can can rush or drop derwin James. They have all lot of speed and versatile chess pieces to try and match up inside this division so I think they went the other way compared to the other teams the other thing. That's going to help them. Go the other way Anthony Lynn offensively talking about running the ball. More tyrod Taylor taking care of the ball. I would expect it achieves one two teams that play at a faster clip. I would expect charges to play at a slower clip on offense. So if we're contrasting styles. They will play like Wisconsin Basketball Virginia basketball in the NCAA tournament where the Kansas City chiefs are trying to fast-break. They're walking the ball up the court shrinking the game trying to get into the fourth quarter. Where their defense can make a player to to set up a scoring opportunity. Yeah that's a great analogy Princeton. Get a little princeton there. You go in Wisconsin. I go Princeton. Same difference how `Bout Let's go over to the NFC NFC East Philadelphia. Eagles won that division last year even though they were very beat up But when you look at that division a what you've seen from the eagles in be who was who's knocking on the door well with the eagles. The Eagles went in spite of their flaws. Their flaws where they didn't have enough weapons around Carson Wentz not enough speed on the field. Didn't couldn't generate the explosive late. I mean they were playing with anybody and everybody at wide receiver and the fact that he was able to throw for four thousand yards and didn't have a receive with over. Five hundred. Receiving yards is amazing really a testament to how great heat is. I think what the Eagles they forced every organization to flush their coach every team in this division has a new head coach. Ron Rivera with the skins joe judge with the giants. Mike McCarthy the cowboys the team that is the most dangerous and bill best prepared to take over the Eagles Dallas cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys are best position because one. They have a really good coach. Mike McCarthy he got beat up on the way out from Green Bay but make no mistake. Someone who wins about fifty five sixty. Five percent of his games is a really really good coach. And they're giving him the kind of weapons offensively that he can operate with an and make things happen and even though killer. Moore's Office Coordinator. Make no mistake. Mccarthy will put his his stamp on this offense CD LAMB. Coming over to join with a more cooper and Michael Gallup with Ezekiel Elliott. In the back of your debt is scary to deal with. I don't know how many teams in this division have three quarters second match up with those guys but we're gonNA find out very quickly who can match up and who can match up while also defending Zeke Elliot. The cowboys on offense. I mean they were number one offense. Last year they they. They're talented but I think now they can control the game. Even more with Zeke being a greater emphasis on the run game but still having explosive players. Defensively Mike Nolan's defense. It may take a while to click is drastically different than the way they played. But this is a team that needed to create turnovers and Mike. Nolan is all about turnovers taking the ball away creating pressure opportunities to generate turnover. They gotta get the ball if they can get the ball back to that office score more points they can win more games and I look at the other two teams. I think you know the giants trying to get better upfront. They do that in the draft. Getting Andrew Thomas there with the fourth pick You look defensively. Xavier mckinney was a great value. Pick for them with come in and start at safety. I think you can make a case. They got better but I think in Washington with chase young. They're gonNA have one of the better defensive fronts. I just don't have the personnel. In in the inconsistency at the quarterback position at this point in time that really challenged those top teams if feels like a split division to me. Buck just feels like you've got the cowboys and the Eagles in the main event and then you've got the redskins and the giants kind of playing on the UNDERCARD And I'm with you on the cowboys when you start looking at the personnel that they have now offensively man. That's that's a challenge to defend that group. I mean Zeke. Elliott should have a monster year with all the weapons. It's going to create more space for him. He's set up for a big time year. Yeah light light boxes. He should face more like Boston. And if they don't lighten the box and they should be able to create one on ones. That's everything that an office coordinator who wants to be able to do. They WanNa play if then football. Meaning if you do this then we're going to count with that and that's what they have. I will say this about a Washington redskins I think Ron Rivera took what the San Francisco. Forty niners were able to do by building up their team on defense with all those former first round picks the founding Washington redskins have five former first rounders ended D. line at frontline rotation. That's going to give them a chance to make ground ground. They won't be able to close ground immediately this year. But I think you can see where the building where becoming all right the Green Bay packers book Obviously a lot of attention on the Jordan thing. We've discussed that but when you just look at this team or they are now compared to last year. And then what you expect In terms of the teams coming up right behind him. You know it's tough because I don't know if they'll get immediate contributions from Anybody in their draft class and this is a team that despite going thirteen and three Our county call them. A bit of paper Tiger They won a lot of games. But I think in those matches when you saw with the San Francisco Forty niners. Their talent level isn't quite there would like the top teams in the NFC. I will say second year. Matlock floors rain What he wants to do is continue to be a little more balanced Offensively they need to be able to run the ball. I think that's where AJ Dylan may come into play. And even though Aaron Jones had a great year. In terms. Of TALLYING UP SCRIMMAGE YOURS. I think they kind of want to be a little more of a physical team. I think that's the thing that kind of resonated with them San Francisco. Just beat them up. They didn't match them with making moves to make them more physical team. So I don't know maybe a little back to the pack The team that is what the Minnesota Vikings are well positioned to obscene team. That makes to run. I mean they were team. That was in the mix last year They got rid of some veteran players. They were key players for them but man the newbies they brought in you talk about having so many picks were at one point but fifteen picks. They had In the draft. This crazy Mike Zimmer Being able to Kinda Redo this this team on the flight. And then Gary. Kubiak is upgrade over. Kevin's too fancy as a play called Gary Kubiak Chemistry fancy was running Kubiak system. Gary Kubiak knows the system. He built a system. This will be a n even better offense. We saw the moves match. Ezra CLEVELAND Coming over you think about Justin Jefferson. Giving him another wide receiver The boot play action game with Kirk. Cousins should really flourish offensively. They may have to. The office may have to carry the load a little bit early. In the season Mike Zimmer find a way to fix the defense and I think as Cleveland could be key because it allows you to kick Riley reef inside to guard Paddle fine just didn't play well last year so we have nothing else. You have competition healthy competition along that offensive line. They've guys really fit what they do I mean I just on paper right now. Buckeye like Minnesota more than Green Bay. Sorry Nabil But I do. I think Minnesota's got a better roster right now you can say that and I and I'm serious like a to be thirteen and three team like they were last year. I don't think they're there talent on paper necessarily equated to that like he kinda worked form. So we'll see what they're like Going forward I will say this about the bears. The bears quarterback competition will be critical to be critical for Nick foles or whoever's playing there To be able to do a defensively they have enough firepower to be able to compete offices where they've really been lacking they haven't had enough consistency and explosive place where they can put points on the board. That's really gonNA help them from overtaken those teams in division. We'll see if they can kind of get it back. I did like one of the Pixel for them. Evalu- picked Arnaud Mooney wide receiver. They got in the fifth round. Just keep an eye on him At a two lane. He did a nice job when you watch them. Auburn LAST YEAR. They stepped up in competition. He brought his game up so I I like him. I thought Detroit overall. I think they're kind of just WANNA play a physical brand of football and you could see that with the moves that they made Who they brought in their again. It is routed every everybody who's been around the Patriots Day brought in anybody who is a patriot. Anybody who practice squad. I've been around. It had a workout former patriot. They brought you in I will say they're trying to play Just trying to bring in players to play transit this style of play that they want man-to-man corners desma truffaut. They Bring Jeff Kuda Kuda or to find our upgrades over Darius slay. I will say no but look. They're committed to doing it at trying to culturally recreate. What existed in New England? We'll see if they have enough time because they're on a mandate to get to the playoffs and so Matt. Patricia has to pull it together quickly. I do like the de'andre swift pick de'andre swift gives them the most talented running back. Dave had well over a decade I would think that he would tell you. A bunch of yards but man is going to be tough. It's going to be tougher than regained grounded. Arrivals well I think you know last year if I'm not mistaken. I believe that you had josh. Jacobs on offense and then you had Max crosby defense. I think both of them finished in the top two or three in the rookie of the year voting for the same. Obviously the raiders. I think this year I think. Okuda is a is a legit defensive rookie of the year candidate and I think swift is a legitimate offensive rookie of the year candidate. Those two guys can be stars. No I think they absolutely can be starts and they're going to be stars right away. That's a lot of pressure to put on a first year player coming out. But they have to have like where they are right now the regime and everything like they gotta get it going and so With this cove in nineteen situation where you can't necessarily get around them They have to find a way to accelerate their growth in and speed of their learning curve. So these guys can make contributions to season are. Let's get to the south here of New Orleans What you've seen from them in the offseason buck and WHO's Who's nipping at their heels? Here Man Sean. Payton is champagne is G. He just understands how to how to get it done like this is a team that is as good as they were last year. They're better this year Emmanuel Sanders Emmanuel Sanders gives them a legitimate number. Two receiving option didn't have that last year they were playing with one guy that you worried about Michael Thomas and they were so good designing plays that he still beat you. And so now you get another guy gown other side who is a legitimate route runner. It's going to be different and also Alvin. Kamara banged up for most of the year last year. Didn't play at the level that we've seen him play if he is healthy and ready to go. I just saw video with him. Doing some balanced rails. If he's able to do any of this stuff they needed two years ago having him in the back view was sanders and Thomas offensively man. It's a nightmare. Take Some Hill. Coming back gives them kind of Swiss army knife and then the move that they've been able to make defensively Zach. Get the medical stuff kind of crushed him. Dropped him down the board but he is a player and he will be really good player for them. I just like what they're doing. And the backup quarterback situation with James Winston coming in if he found a laws that deal perfect situation for him perfect situation from them. You talk about a a quarterback and they jameis. Winston is only twenty five years old if they can fix the flaws that kinda overshadowed the good parts of his game man look out to get through for a million yours. Last year. Had THIRTY THREE TOUCHDOWNS. We talk about the interceptions. There are a lot of quarterbacks in this league. They have now thrown for thirty three touchdowns. All Right Buck I. I'm with you on the on the On the saints in one of the things I wanNA talk to you about. Is THEY DRAFT? Adam Trautmann right in the third round. So you've got jared cook already have Josh. L. We bring in Adam Trautmann which leads me to one of the things I want to ask you about because talking to some of the top offensive minds when we were going to combat a chance to visit with a bunch of people and and I kept hearing the same theory over and over again remember Two years ago was eleven personnel league. Everybody was in eleven personnel back. One tight end now. I'm telling you everybody. I talked to book. They're obsessed with twelve. They WanNa play in twelve personnel. We saw with the Eagles right with the two tight ends was Zakar. It's and Went Dallas Goddard. The forty niners love playing with two tight ends. I think when you look at the saints going out and getting Trautmann and they can play with Jared Cook. I think that's the that's the kind of invoked personnel group. We're GONNA see here in this next season. Is Everybody's going to be living in that because especially when you got verse does versus Tight Ends? You can do so many different things you just go back to that. Patriot offense and we remember that when that took off and I think it was copied for a little bit and then it kind of went away and then the eleven thing took off. I I'm telling you you'RE GONNA see two tight ends on the field a lot this year. Here's why DJ so the the the beauty of twelve personnel Comes in in in so many different dimensions. When you have two tight ends on the feel it gives you the opportunity to play what we call. Ace formations meaning. You have tight ends. On opposite sides feels and wide receivers. They're that balances up the defense. And he leaves it vulnerable one side. Because you can't play eight man front against it because there are too many gaps your gap short. Also when you have two tight ends on the field if one of those guys has enough versatility to be a true leap blocker when and you can get into twenty one personnel formations meaning your traditional formations. And does things that are problematic for the defense. You can do that if that tied in also has the ability to may be displaced and play as a slot receiver you neck and do those eleven personnel things so from one personnel package. You can give defenses. Amelia formations to have to defend and it just makes it very difficult for the defense to try it out the right personnel. Because do we stay base? Do we go nickel depending on that one? Little CHESAPEAKE DEBT. You have and all of the teams. There were the top rushing teams last year. The Minnesota Vikings to San Francisco. Forty niners the Baltimore Ravens. They played with twelve or twenty one personnel. People take notice and they saw how difficult it was to defend teams. That wanted to beat you up and because of the late reaction to the eleven personnel stuff where everybody went out and got these speed. Russia's debt a light and fast they can't take on blocks and so when you can't take on blocks you run it right at them. I think it's fascinating. You just explain that so beautifully. That's why I love having these conversations with you but to be able to just put that in a beautiful picture for everybody to see just how complicated it is to To deal with that type of formation in personnel grouping as a defense when you look at the teams to give this guy some fits I mean I look when you add the greatest quarterback of all time. I know Tom Brady is not coming off a great yearbook and you can. We can all see. I mean the the skills have declined a little bit but when you look at the team that they have around him now look at the weapons that they have And they've got better on the offensive line with Tristan wharfs We look on the defensive side of the ball. They've got a pretty town. Defensive Front V. I think's kind of a star that nobody talks about You look up the Middle Antoine winfield adding him at safety. I think that team's pretty good on paper. Man Team is really good on paper. The team is really going on paper. The trick will be Can Preserve Tom Brady enough. That he could be his best down the stretch. Meaning that We talk about a trucks and trailers League or description of the quarterback. What they need is they need to set the team up where Tom Brady can be a trailer until they get down. The December to last four games in the playoffs within he can flip into being the trump. I don't WanNa put all a bit on. Tom Brady to have to carry the team the entire season. But you know the the one thing about this division. I think it's interesting if you if you look around. And we talked about Tampa and Tom. Brady being a new quarterback in this division without an offseason Carolina. Teddy Bridgewater new quarterback without an off season. Even though he is familiar with from his time with Joe Brady The saints obviously have the familiarity. They're they're the top division. But I think the Atlanta Falcons the continuity that they have with Matt Ryan. Offensively is GONNA help them go into this off season and I think they're kind of a team you just you kind of forget about him. Nobody really talks about them but they they've got a talented group. I mean they've got a really good group and I think the fact that that Matt Ryan and his familiarity with the surroundings with the system all that stuff is going to benefit them in this kind of different year that we find ourselves in London first rounders eleven former first rounders on offense the only team to ever have that many says a ton of weapons around him on the outside Kabul Ridley Julio Jones Maybe we see reinvigorated. Todd Gurley plant in front of his people His Georgia fans down there. And did all it could be interesting. defensively Rahim and Jeff over it taken over the defense help them style list down the stretch. It was kind of a cleaner defense in it. Played Better We'll see if agent to royal can step in and be that number one corner that they need a need a better play on the outside because to be honest in this division. If you don't have quantum good quarterback but you can't compete too many good wide receivers. The ball flies all over the yard too much. You have to be able to to cover people and this division yet. But they're well position The buccaneers Falcons Viable contenders disavow visited tourist flips every year. So we'll see but I think we have to mention the Carolina Panthers what they commenced seven picks on defense Trying to add more speed offensively. This looks like an office. That should be ready to go Christian McCaffrey. The holdovers to have offensively will see how Joe Brady Adjust to coaching at the pro level in terms of running an offense win. He's never really been a four time. Play call so we'll see how that goes but defensively. There's no doubt in my mind that they're building a fast team. It may take a year or two before we see kind of like the fruits of their Labor to defensively. They're going to be fast with Jeremy. Chin You bring over Derrick Brown to help up front Gr- gross mottos the rush off. The estimate was all defensive draft so They're going to be better on that side of the ball. No doubt Offensively Man I just tell you. What BUCK TICKET TO KEEP? Christian McCaffrey healthy. If something happens to Christian McCaffrey i. I don't know how they're going to be able to generate a whole lot offense so you know. I like Robbie Anderson his spe- DJ more We've got Curtis Samuel. That's that's a that's a good group there but I still think the offensive line is just so so. In in this whole thing runs through McCaffrey. So they've gotta find a way to keep him healthy. Yeah I think I think it is about Chris. Mccaffrey keeping them healthy. Keeping them right making sure that he has The juice when they need it. They beat him a lot of money so they obviously gotta make sure they utilize him. But you gotta do it. Smart like handy work smarter not harder and still gets kind of the benefits of him being one of the more dynamically in the league. I do think we before we leave this division also. I failed to mention gronk being there with Tampa so that at him to the mix that they have there with the Tampa Bay Bucks. It's going to be it's GonNa be interesting division of follow this year with a lot of those new pieces that challenges. How long can you take How long does it take for these new pieces in new places to get in the groove with the with unusual offseason? That's going to be challenged really for all these teams we've been talking about is the challenge. Some teams veteran teams scientists at a veterans. You you take care what you need to take care of. Take care of your families. We'll work on. Rookies will get together and Training Camp. Other teams already grinding. I saw where is durant. The Rams Spend about an hour and a half each day with their players four days a week so we'll see how it goes. I think the guys who have kind of been through situations similar dislike the lockout in twenty eleven They have a plan for getting their team. Ready to play What I call old school where you have to go to training camp for six weeks and get it done if you understand that. I think there's more than enough time to do it. You just can't over a you can't tax your team too much. You can't blow their minds up before you get a chance to really get around no doubt let's get to the final division here the NFC West San Francisco Man. It was a razor thin margin with them in the seahawks but they got it done. Thanks to the tackle by by Drake Greenlaw their final meeting but San Francisco where they are buck. And then who do you vision as the as the biggest challenge are now? I think the hardest thing to do an our business is to be honest to be honest with your evaluation to be able to look at your team critically and say we have to get better. I think the San Francisco forty nine is where able to look at a team that they were a half a quarter way from being crowned as the Super Bowl champions and to say hey we gotta get better. There's some things that we need to improve. The deforest buckner move was fantastic. Because they got into the forest both in a good player and brought back a player a younger cheaper model in Japan Kinloch and wide receiver they lose Emmanuel Sanders who gave them some maturity gave him some experience on the outside but man they brought in over a an explosive dynamic out with some toughness in Brennan Team with deebo Samuel was born Kennedy born. Who COMES BACK? They are good on the outside their physical the running game look the government read it but they find a way to continue to run the ball and run the ball successfully. That's what they do This is a team that has just really really solid. I think they've attacked their needs in weaknesses Nothing to product going forward is going to be a better product because swap out. Joe Staley for Trent Williams. You can say maybe upgrade team. Well position it's GonNa be a fight in the in the industry West because the teams that they're facing are also good but Manda Forty niners a poised to be the champions all over again and I think it's easy to point to Seattle and look at them as a as a team that was right there whisker away from one in this division as being the biggest threat. You can make that case had some changes along the offensive line. Some new faces in their going forward. We'll see how that comes together. Jordan Brooks Very athletic throw him in the mix on defense and put him next Bobby Wagner. You've got some real speed there which they always have it up there in. Seattle but and I love. What the Rams did you know? And the rams after having apart with a lot of veteran players in free agency and not having a first round pick man I thought they had a home run draft of their outstanding job. What would get accomplished in the draft? But I'm telling you book I just get the feeling I look this. Division at the teen is scares me as Arizona because if cuyler Murray can take that next step And this is a team that goes out in the draft and you add. Isaiah Simmons in his athleticism on defense they. They bypass the tackle which I thought man. They need another tackle. If they're going to really get more guys out in the route and operate this offense the way it was meant to go. But then Josh Jones They're able to get him in the draft so I think he's got a chance to to plug and play as a starter as a rookie. And then you bring over De'andre Hopkins. Who's a legit top five receiver in the NFL to go along with Christian Kirk? And what he can do and all these other young receivers. Plus Larry Fitzgerald. I just think this offense has a chance to be very dynamic and I think they added some good athletes on the defensive side of the balls. Well they're secondary should be outstanding with all the different pieces they can use their really good team a really explosive I don't know if their defense can keep up with the heavyweights as Simmons gives them a big time. Playmaker there have to piece together offensively. They certainly should be fun when I look at this team. Right now I think they're right in the middle of the pack enough dependent upon what Calum Murray is able to do. That could be the difference in being eight or nine seven or whatever team but the division is tough Seattle San Francisco if his gallon. The toughest and talent. is GONNA be tough man to San Francisco. Forty nine is the Seattle Seahawks. Dead rivalry debt competitiveness between those two teams razor thin margin. You talked about like that played it. Kinda pushed the San Francisco. Forty niners into the playoffs as division champion. It could come down to that all over again and I just think when you go to the rams real quick outgoing todd Gurley incomes camakers Out Goes Brandin cooks incomes vent Jefferson Jabber replacing those two stars with those two players. How about this? I'M GONNA go out on a limb and say that camakers may rush twelve yards this year. I know people have incident Darrow. Hanson began makers is a much better player and whatever took place which girl wears to injuries whether it was the chemistry of the fail connects with him in Sean mcvay. I don't know but I think Sean McVeigh was humbled enough. That he wants to give right. He not only wants to win but he wants to repair his reputation as being one of the best play goals if not the best play call in the league. I think we're going to see cam acres featured and a prominent role as a runner receiver. That is going to put the shine back on Sean mcvay as a play caller because everyone organization understands the importance of the running game as it relates to Jerry. Goff I think cam acres is going to be a superstar for them in the role that eventually put him in. I'm with you. I'm all in on camakers. It'd be One of my favorites for offense rookie of the year. I think he's a great fit in that system and I think he's GonNa play behind better offensive line in the one. He had there at Florida state. So you're going to see a big time here from camakers all right man. It's been fun buck. It's been great to catch up great to see a great to go through all these teams. It's weird you've built up all this time talking about the draft and all of a sudden it's just like boom it's gone and now and now you start looking forward normally. We'd be talking about these guys getting on the field rookie minicamp. And how do they look in talking to your buddies and now they're on conference calls you know they're on a video conference calls right now so it's a one another reminder of just we're living in a different time right now man? Yeah? Different time it'd be interested in going forward like how the off-season plays out like what we're able to glean from our guys on the inside but yes interesting time but look. This has been great. It's been a great Lead up to the draft We've completed waiver to reflect a whatever I think the the next few weeks when we're able to decompress or whatever. I think it'd be interested in when we do. Reconvene down the line to just talk about the lessons learned from an evaluation standpoint on look where guys got picked not necessarily like where guys pick high determines how you chain but what themes came out of this draft when it comes to evaluating selecting players and how we can take those lessons in using for now while I know some of you listening right now. Are we thinking okay? Well I guess we'll catch move the sticks podcast in the fall when football comes back if it comes back on time and no no we. We're going to keep going here. We've got some. We've got some great content stored up and we're going to be bringing in new stuff as well but we had opportunity to go to the baseball winter meetings and talk with a bunch of general managers and talked to Don Mattingly all kinds of great people and talk about the differences between running baseball team running a football team lessons that that we could share with each other and it was fascinating conversations with all these guys. So we're GONNA have some of that content coming your way. Once the baseball season kicks starts hopefully sooner rather than later. We've been collecting all these stories about the greatest high school football player you've ever seen. We've we've asked former players coaches everybody and we've got some fantastic stories that we're going to share with you and also get a chance again a preview this upcoming season with the NFL. Which I do believe we will see in what we can expect from that as well so the content's not going anywhere. We're going to be here. No we absolutely going to be here. This is the first year we're going to put some of those projects into play so I'm looking forward to seeing I go there. You Go. Well that's going to do it for us today. Do you think mark in the bill for helping get this thing off the ground and guidance through as we made it through the draft do appreciate all their hard work. Arjuna as well Ryan Bartlett as well David Singer who's got so many great gifts during the During the draft season so we have really a team of people that have done a wonderful job on a think. All them what that's going to do it for today. Thank you so much for listening to move the sticks presented by Fedex.

Steelers-Titans Postponed: What to Know and What to Do (10/01 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"All Right Bonus Pod for you here we just got to finish finishing up our fifteen minute podcast talking starts it, and then we got the news that the titans and the steelers are postponed. So guys, what do we know right now what fantasy managers need to know? We know that they're not going to have Derrick Henry Ryan Tannehill Johnny Smith. You're not gonNa Have Ben, Rothlisberger Judas misuse ter-, James Connor. So you have to adjust in. This is basically now the steelers titans by week at least that's the way I would anticipate it being rules, and so we have to figure out when this game is going to be replayed and how to adjust your schedule moving forward. But the good thing is is that you can prepare for this before the Thursday night game to get guys into your line up in have replacement options as opposed to if it would have been after Thursday or certainly. Closer to the weekend. We don't have a chance to make some waivers. It if you have not shy suggested this off season, not specifically for this purpose but kind of for this purpose I suggested that you're waiver run on Tuesday night slash Wednesday, and then it should be I come for serve for the rest of the week and I know Adam Kinda hates that. If you chose not to do that and you're listening to this before the Thursday games, you should make it first come first serve today if nothing else just for today. So people have a chance to pick up those Thursday, night players to start them in place of their steelers titans like who who's available. That you'd actually start tonight I mean like you may have to get pretty desperate in this situation There are more is not bad in against the broncos defense that's down Casey, and he's getting a lot of work and what we're looking at. You're you're you're talking about I still think Jeff Wilson is going to have a role as long as we're he most or doesn't play for the forty niners. There are a lot of receivers you can find Greg Ward is GonNa get a lot of targets for the eagles with most likely no Alshon Jeffery, and no Sean Jackson and even if Jeffrey does play, he is rostered in twenty percent of leagues there's You know I'm trying to think renfrew RENFRO. Kobe's lead to wide receivers. You could find that are probably going to get a lot of targets Robert, and if you're looking for tight end, replacement has scored in two straight games in his facing the defense that allows the most fantasy points to opposing titans. So there are guys out there for you and obviously looking at no rothlisberger and no Ryan Tannehill Ryan Fitzpatrick is in a great spot against the Seattle defense. That's. Teddy Bridgewater is probably going to be throwing a lot in a match up that. Hopefully, he has more than one touchdown so. Nick foles is now a starter for the bears and just came off a twenty three point outing where he didn't even start the game. It's tough match-up but again, you're stuck. So this is this is the nightmare and you know the the fact that it it it's it's happening without you know prior to Tuesday when you run waivers, but it's also prior to the Games being played. So you have the entire rest of. The slates to go find some scraps that can hopefully get you by and you're probably not only personalities. We're we're talking about you know six to eight guys that are really fantasy relevance in a lot of cases you know some great receivers in Indiana Johnson in issues during for what Corey Davis has been to amazing running backs and James Connor, and Derrick Henry, and at least two quarterbacks for what they've been fantasy. Wise. He's commissioners easy to do anything. Do we need to give some I are spots or do we just say, Hey, this is a bi week. You know you gotta deal with that. That's the thing that we don't like. I wish that we got the announcement that seems church. There's a pretty easy fix that you move the steelers by week one week. Have them play the ravens that week and then steelers and titans had the same by week and they would play. Then if we got the announcement that that was what was happening and this was definitely the steelers by week that I would feel pretty okay with just saying to fantasy managed by week you don't get any extra Irish spots we've not heard that yet. If it some solution other than that, and they're still going to have a bye at week seven and eight this year then I think we would need to allow not necessarily add extra air spots but allow people to put Derrick Henry in our spot for this week and like. It depends on how you've set it up we most of our leagues. Are Set up to where you don't have to be on I are to be an I. R. Slot. Some of them require it. Some of them don't because. Some guys who are out are just okay on I are and this is where there's a little bit of a loophole with all of this because as far as I understood it, and if you guys understand this differently explained to me. I thought if you were in. Contact with anybody that was considered tested positive for Covid you were supposed to be put on the Kobe's list. which obviously would lend itself to believe that the entire Titans Organization. Has Come depends on the proximity that's why they have these chips where they're monitoring GPS. Basically, the total now is and we are in full disclosure. We are recording this as it's unfolding. Right we got off like you said, we got off the air and trackers. Let's do an emergency podcast. So in the time that we started and just until now. Both Thomas, our own Adam Schefter tweeted that two more positive test this morning. So now brings the total eleven within the organization, five players in six employees including some defensive assistant coaches. So what that could mean as like Derrick Henry, for example, could have an I'm just speculating could be one of the five players. If that's the case he's going on the covert artist right now you can place them in our spot even if he's on the ballot. But right but we may know and I would just say that any like and again it's going to depend on your league settings. But any special ruling commissioner is making for Titans. Players should be made for steelers players even though they've not been exposed to what's causing this delay, their game is being delayed for the same reason. By do think you're making a point important distinction of? Being able to put someone on. The spot as opposed to adding spots you know say okay well, you have. Already have Christian McCaffrey I. I'm sorry we don't have enough I are spots. You're just you're out of luck. You, the each commissioner can make up his or her own mind, but there's two ways to go about it. You could add spots or you could just say this person's now eligible for one of your already existing IRA spots so and then think in terms of the CBS leagues. If, you're the commissioner. You PROB. I. Think you can put somebody manually into an I. R. Spot. Even if they don't have the I. R. Designation I'm sure and you can also just have a there's a button to just change your settings to where they don't have to be on I are going. Yeah, you could do that too right I think commissioner needs to be flexible I. Mean That's the most important thing like you said, you know you can allow for ad drops in merger situation you can allow for. Putting guys on IRS. But if it's just there by we I don't think I. Don't see how you can justify doing something different than it does about like for my leagues. If they said this week I'm sorry. I, know you you hoped to prepare for this I have. A lot of these players. I'm sure we all have a lot of these players. They're great players. So you know like I I'm GonNa. Fourteen, league, it's the team that I share with my my son are only quarterback is Ben Rothlisberger. Prior to this I made a trade offer last night to try and get Cam Newton for a manager that has three quarterbacks I don't think he's GonNa make the trade because we're playing this week but you know I'm GonNa have to make a tough call like we have a very good bench. I'M GONNA have to drop somebody to pick up a quarterback and it's probably going to be Philip rivers ready to Teddy Bridgewater. That's this I'm stuff. All right. So he's an IRA CO commissioners of League that he really supposed to be the commissioner of one of us is GonNa have to send a note to the League I. Have a feeling it's GonNa be me because he is basically giving me all the responsibilities that league so is that well, what are you going to tell people if they're probably Going to say if it's there by a week, then there will be no changes made and you're going to have to adjust if it's not thereby week, you'll be able to put. Titans or steelers in an I are spot here. Here's the thing my question though because I don't I don't I don't disagree with that at all. Our is the NFL going to announce when they're playing before Sunday. Here's the NFL's announcement so far this is this statement from. I'm seeing this the NFL. Statement on steelers titans game. So the Pittsburgh Tennessee game together, we four will be rescheduled to later this season after one additional times player in one personal member tested positive. For Kobe, nineteen today an announcement of the new Game Day will be made shortly. So if we want to stay on the air for another couple of minutes, maybe something happened. I think we've covered this scenario people can do. You know what if they announced they've just moved to by weeks around. This is their bye week. Then you don't have to do anything special. They don't then you probably should. Okay. Okay. Thank you so much everybody. Hope this has been helpful for me listen that starter set episode and you can fast order the part where we talk about this game the. Show and art will concentrate.

I'm gonna give you the first story we discussed police were called to a Texas WalMart after a woman was reportedly drinking wine from Pringles can and lighting electric part in the parking. That's a as ING now. Wait a minute Astor's reeling. Fish officers responded to the call around nine am she's drinking get nine in the morning.

This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy chef the NFL playoffs are getting underway. This weekend to rake it all down discuss all things pro football. We welcome one of ESPN's most visible and versatile commentators Meena Meena. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me honored to be described as visible. I feel like the meat. Just means. I'm coming through very saturated on television, your everywhere your every night. Meet you really are everywhere. Like, how do you? How do you manage your time? These days every time I turn on the TV earn a different show. It's cloning playing nineteen. But there are ethical issues with human cloning right now. Are you? Sure, you sure you wanna go that direction. Yeah. I think we're only going to have to cross that bridge when one of my clones gives a take that's directly in conflict with another one of the clones. Like one says the ravens are going to win. And one says, the then, you know, we're going to have to have a talk. It's funny because Tyler Hamilton the cyclists he kind of used a similar excuse to explain a positive drug test wants to remember that. He said he added disappearing twin in the womb. It's kind of like a cloning thing. But it's not exact not exactly as we're we're talking with Meena kinds of who is on the west coast as we speak in Los Angeles. And of course, the chargers will be in Baltimore this weekend in the wildcard round. And that's one of the big stories this year in the NFL kind of the renaissance of southern California football in Los Angeles with the two pro teams both exceeding well exceeding expectations might not be the right way to put it with the Rams, but but certainly having a lot reason for fans there to celebrate. What's what's the atmosphere around pro football now in Los Angeles city that didn't have it for about two decades. Man, this the city has cut football football fever the other day. I saw two football fans walking. I one incredible. I was stunned. I know I saw chargers fan in the wild. Jeremy? I almost went up to them and ask them for their autograph. There are some Rams fans. I will say that I have seen increasingly because you know, they've been good for a couple years now. And but the chargers are definitely lagging in that regard you despite their success would if they go on a run here. Does that seem likely it's going to be easy to win Baltimore? Yeah. Well, if they gonna run they're gonna have to do it on the road. Fortunately, the chargers are seven and one on the road, and they basically play in a road atmosphere here in their makeshift stadium or their temporary home. If you go to a chargers game in Los Angeles often, you'll be outnumbered. I certainly was the case with the Packers. And some of them were they the Coliseum. I can't keep track. They play their home. That's where the Rams play which actually has taken on a little bit more, exciting home atmosphere. The chargers currently play in a soccer stadium. Oh, right. Going to. Yeah. It's kind of fun. Okay. So so they're they're exciting. They're young. They're different. Are they going to beat the the ravens? Well, I would say the the ravens are more exciting and different than the chargers. I mean, the funding amount of chargers is they've been actually quite good on paper by most analytics love them, and I'm an analytics nurse. So I've loved the chargers that I've picked them and curse myself for several years now because the underlying metrics all suggests that they should be really good. But then they tend to lose as football fans. No on last minute feel missed field goals and weird fluky cursed. Things seem to defile this team at every turn that hasn't happened to season. It's like all their luck has regressed at once and Philip rivers until the end of the year really was putting on sort of an MVP caliber performance for much of the season. Now, the ravens as you know, have maybe the most unusual offensive situation in football in that while the rest of the league has turned to this. Modern pass heavy spread 'em out offense, which is. Partially responsible for the rise in scoring. The ravens are determined with their young quarterback. Lamar Jackson to run the ball more than it has ever been run before. And there's a gang the rest of the league zagging, but it's really worked. And it's led them coupled with their defense to this to win their division and shocked really a lot of people in the process. You're speaking times of ESPN, and they're what they're six in one since Joe flacco got hurt right and was replaced by Lamar Jackson in part of the problem. Of course, is that as you describe it since their zagging or their zigging and everybody is going the other way, nobody knows had defend against the run anymore. Are they bringing in some like one thousand nine hundred hundred offensive coordinators, you know, to prep teams now, and they play the ravens it's funny because everyone when when the ravens are on there's this narrative other this old school run the ball offense. And you know, what do we do? There's nothing old school actually about this rushing offense. In fact, they're borrowing crazy modern college principles like on a single run play. They'll be you know, two guys running jet sweeps and incredible amount appreciate motion and the offensive line is blocking one way and the tight end, pulling it's incredibly complicated, coupled with the fact that you have the most dynamic rusher at quarterback since Michael Vick, and that is really really difficult for defensive around because they have no idea what's going on. It's not even that they've been defending the pass all year. It's that this is really really difficult offense to stop when it when it's clicking. And I don't know if it's enough to take them to. I mean at some point you think okay with stump defense is going to figure this out. They're going to force Lamar Jackson to win with his arm. And I do believe that's going to happen. But it really hasn't happened yet Kim, we're speaking with Meena comes and it's wild card weekend in the NFL. We've got colts Texans. You hawks Cowboys charges ravens which we've been talking about. But more important. I wanna talk about the soup. For bowl champion. Philadelphia Eagles and their quarterback. Nick foles. Who of course was so spectacular in that playoff run last year. After Carson Wentz got her, of course in Wentz out again this year, and now Nick foles again looks like Johnny United's. Why is it? Then mean, it when people say, well, maybe Nick foles should be the porta back of the future in Philadelphia. We know he's older. We know Carson Wentz, you know, has got this high ceiling and all that why do people laugh though, it's not silly is. It's not I, but it's crazy like this shouldn't be had nothing about this should be happening because we knew Nichols was. And then when he had there on this at the end of the season everyone. Well, that's just a miraculous thing. Let's just compartmentalize it put aside, but then it's it's happening again, and people are kind of struggling to explain it in wrap their minds around it, especially in Philadelphia where they do have a twenty million dollars team option to keep foles, but he'd have to be the starter. And he can turn it down. And. In the crazy scenario that he pulls this off again somehow and leads them on a deep playoff run. They're going to be in a very difficult situation. Like, how do you let a quarterback who's done this twice go? Even when you believe that your young rookie quarterback is better than him. I don't know. It's it's kind of a reared quandary that Philadelphia's kind of stumbled into he's weird because you know, you know, here's a team that doesn't win a championship for fifty seven years. They win one with Nick foles. And of course, we have no idea whether they're going to win one. The odds are against this time around. But even if they get close, you know, it's something that no eagles quarterback. Is it Chievo in six decades in the lifetime of in living memory most people and yet it's like, well, that's good enough. Like, what do they think they think Carson Wentz is going to get five Super Bowls? I mean, what's the possible thinking like if he does approve at this time? Is there perhaps it some level? Of course, they don't want to win. But a hope that like ho- we win. But Nick foles doesn't go twenty seven for twenty eight in all these games and make this really tough. Yeah. I kind of I mean. The NFL decision makers. Really don't like to be surprised like you say, okay. We got the rookie quarterback. We coached them up. He's excellent. He's got the pedigree. He was phenomenal. He was an MVP candidate before he got hurt. Nick foles is a surprise. He is the black swan of quarterbacks. Okay. And so everyone is stomach is trying to figure out how not how do we gain planet because they've done. Doug Peterson designed a phenomenal job of game planning around him. And weirdly his teammates seem to play better with him than Carson Wentz. Alshon Jeffery the number one wide receiver is much better with Nick foles sometimes that happens, but they don't there's no plan like this is a sort of unprecedented situation because they don't have a plan for his future. But they're trying to win in the present. And it's very very confusing. If they go, you know, he'd probably ends up as the giants starter next season. Right. Oh, he's. Yeah. I mean, look the most likely scenario is they let him go. Okay. The most likely scenario, right? Now is they don't win the Super Bowl, and they let him go because of the aforementioned team option they're not going to pay a couple of quarterbacks ton of money in that kind of thing. But if they do he is going to probably be maybe the most desirable free agent quarterback in the market. So yes, the giants are in the mix Jacksonville. I think will certainly be in the mix a bunch teams around league new quarterbacks in it's a very very bad draft media which game of the four games this weekend. Are you most eager to sit down on the couch and enjoy well as a Seattle fan? I'm not gonna say Seattle because I'll be clenched the entire time. And I won't enjoy myself at all as I never do. I'm really excited for Texans colts. I think first of all this tire wildcard weekend. Jeremy is like a phenomenal wild card weekend. The lines are much smaller than the the the biggest I think the most favored team is the bears by six so Vegas isn't predicting any boring. Blowouts lose. Excellent. Yeah. Right. And as I say this probably the eagles would blow up the bears or something ridiculous. But right now, it looks like we've actually got really good games. Okay. Texans. Coach I have every single analyst. I've talked to his picked a different team. These are both relief flawed teams with really dynamic quarterbacks and stars across the colts. Have so many young rising stars incredible coach and Frank Reich was really turned around that offense Texans. You got what clowney Watson Hopkins? It's just going to be a really good matchup Munich calms, she's on ESPN constantly like every sick on the Dan lebatardshow and around the horn outside London's, you got the podcast miracle that you find time to have a conversation for our little show here the sporting life, but we appreciate your having found the time to thank you for joining us here.

Can you guys hear me okay from the island? I gotcha I gotcha doing well. Here line and we got allison coming in who had last week off is back with US tonight how you doing Alex? Hey Joe I'm doing great man I. Miss You got sentimental of it was a long week for me man we had had a good vacation some time away and happy to rejoin my brethren Steve, you joe and meat man I'm I'm so pumped for the show. It's going to be a great show with Robin. We've got some really hot topics that we're GONNA talk tackle. Yeah, we definitely do. Already, we got Louis in the bullpen. So who you just hang on there, we will do a little house cleaning and we will get to you as fast as we. Got Him in the joining us. So let's start right off We want to get to baseball is that baseball is back this weekend in New, York, city at Citi Field and Yankee Stadium I watched a little bit of everything I can't watch the whole game But. The first thing that stuck out to me was the people in the stands that city field with ridiculous I don't know if you guys. He's ought. To. Yes a hardcore. That's I mean. I love the fact like the real was done. You know it's like give me anything and I'm happy Happier Than Akin to candy store. But yeah, I mean it was like Wax Museum it was. It was very plastic. It felt like Kardashian Concert I. Mean There's a lot of you know there's cardboard cutout, but you know between the between the lines on the diamond I was just Elated. To See some pro sportsman and that's Everyone has a favorite sport or two I mean love it or hate it. That's America's pastime. So I think it's so important for the country to start healing through through sports. So I thought overall, it was good. It was a little sloppy but the overall missions. And you know the message that that things that can come back to the way it used to be with pretty resonant with me. So I, I like. Allergy. you know I I'm glad we're starting to play some some games and that they're they're finally back obviously as we talked about on this show at great length, there was a lot of Conflict between the owners and the Players Association before they actually got you know to to get on the field and that's why this that's why we're in the situation we're in where they're only gonNA. Get to play sixty games. It's 'cause they fought over you know money and uh all the little things they players wanted and the owners wanted for so long. So I'm glad that they finally got back I think the cardboard cutouts are pretty stupid just going. Guys Watch any of the basketball tournament which the the former marquette players one this year but they they just had Kinda curtains down on the sidelines kind of just blocking out this the vacant stands and I, thought that was kind of a cool idea and was hoping that the MLB would come up with something. Cool. That would kind of take away from the fact that there was no fans there. But. Putting, cardboard cutouts just makes it makes people look at it and I think that's that's kind of stupid. But hopefully, they'll come up with something better. Yeah. I've been watching a lot of the soccer in Europe. It would they do. Is They just advertisements and? I think that's better. Idea I mean make money. Every news the fans aren't there I mean. Every knows them. Wanting we piping noise is another thing to put these cardboard cutout today it just it looks ridiculous I'm you would think wilpon with with and they did. Like of course. La and Oakland other teams are doing it and I, I hope to get over fast because it looked really stupid. Is Ridiculous on top that I'll take. The Mets Looks Lobby Joe? That's. Really quickly on the mess owners, I always dish it on Dolan. Deservedly it's another terrible ownership in best. Sports capital of the world you know they can't shoelaces but yeah. So leave it to them to come up with the tacky idea I did think I did hear something cool needing show on a duck wfan sports radio today driving up to go coach they're talking a lot Joe, you've probably heard just in a huge local you know New York's Fan, for baseball they're talking about Mike and up like a pita Lonzo I think if you make up a couple of colorful characters that would be really cool. What do you guys think about that? I. Did that back way back when when I remember watching those little kid Tommy Lasorda with time was third base coach of the dodgers. And it was really good. He was funny talked about all the players and killed one instance where a guy who slid into third sets. The end of the microphones wasn't that bad. Yeah. It can be fun with the first base only is you gotta make sure they're gonNA have some personnel. and. I remember it was grades eight couple of years ago when Larry Walker in mark grace timely worked. We're trying four hundred and they leave notes with you to each other with their spikes in the dirt and you know Mark, grace. Way goes he goes to Larry Walker Eugene at four hundred, and then when he got back event Larry Walker get hit three hundred. It. Goes on. ABC REPLACE The catcher would be good to it's just a matter of you gotta ask the personality. In it makes. Me You're a big your big baseball guy just like throw i. it's it's cool. You would love this on the drive a couple of hours ago going going out to the field they had. Sean Keith. You know the mayor, you know M obt star and he was such a popular like jokes and you need A. Colorful guy that keeps you chop it up and tell jokes and Joe Great Point on the it's gotta be a for basement. Because you know it's a slow it's slower game and that's it's perfect for that Mike up to I mean you can't do that with Steph curry you can't do that without you know Daniel Jones giant stadium a baseball is good for needs you like the idea of Mike Up. Well they did it you know with the xfl and I thought it was really cool how they had the coaches miked up and you got to kind of hear what the play call was and also the quarterbacks were miked up too. So it was Kinda Cool in that regard hearing the quarterback called the play that the coach called and kind of hearing the back and forth. But you know this is all new territory. So they're GONNA have to experiment with it I. Don't think they want to do anything that takes away from the game, but if they can make it cool and make it kind of exciting and kind of Assad bar think it might it might work. And I'M GONNA screaming Louis Sitting on hold since I want to bring them into say low no allergy called this show and Saturday. So there we go. There's a lot of fun. It's great, show All. Right. Joe Thanks thanks again for calling Saturday. Really appreciate. I had a ball Houston creek commentary. You had a really cool setup. You had like an open bullpen like an open forum and he had some really talented people do. Tie. Develop a show. That's what I thought. The best way I can do it. Very cool. Very cool man. I'd love to do it. I'll do it against you in a minute was a black. Great. All right when you WanNa talk about baseball. What do you WanNa talk about? Well I mean I guess. He some of the Games this weekend it was a little sloppy but what you expect to bonds I, mean you know there's GonNa be you know the butterflies stomach again you know this was even longer than the usual offseason. So actually, I expect a little bit of Rust here and there you know pitching might be a little bit Iraq and getting might be a little bit off but you know I was I wasn't. At all. I'm not surprised actually any of slow starts I mean, you know you're out of your rhythm and it takes a while to get back. But of course being professional, you know they can say that easily and by the way I see that. Game last week. Digit. and. I'll tell you it looked like you know during the. First Opening Games. You know it was like blowout city and whatnot, but they really got there to play more competitive ball like in the later rounds and it turned to be you know a decent brand of basketball. But yeah, kind of exciting and I enjoyed seeing some of the former players that I'd watch playing college. You know the Marquette guys you'll have steak guys in Syracuse guys. It was cool to see and they've been doing this now for a couple of years. So I, think they're getting better at it and getting some big time guys to play in this tournament. I was I did I was really ruining sideline Kansas to pull it off me too. I've been I've been affected by a lot of people who cantered my. original co-host Got Me starting this whole thing. He passed away from cancer in February. So They they made it to the finals. Yeah I know you didn't get. You didn't get a chance to know him but he and I go back to when we just want to start starting out locally. And you know he passed away in February. I was devastated the person who brought me here nationally also has cancer, but she's Holding up, and you know it's like I just lose powers and whatnot and host. It's like I've lost extended family. So yeah. No it Kinda hit me this year. I mean thankfully to them are still are still with us but you know. Eric co-host and felt like a brother to me you know just really hit. So anyway. Sorry. Louis, your your your part, our family, pro, you know that. Thanks. So you can see why I had a motive for for sidelined camping and that's you mean these squad to Yep you're. You know can't forget Jimmy me. So I'm just. Going to go. Of course. Yes I'm still waiting for the countdown for every new start up I. mean everybody's saying Oh the sports league start Thursday no, we only had to the starting I mean we. Of course, ninety percent doesn't really care about mls soccer but I do so that counts in my book, you have auto racing, you have golf. So you can't really say sports you know hasn't been back yet because it has a way. You're just not just not looking. Yeah. Big, Dope. Louis. Correcting on the out I. Miss I miss both before he jumped out and said the first press for yeah. You're right now nascar soccer. Joe. Astutely pointed that out there's been other stuff cooking. Back. Definitely. And if you want to count you. May Go ahead and wrestling while wrestling. Do you. Louis. Not, mean to. Push too much into this but would you sort of the Yankees in the first two games against the mets In like nothing to stop them I, guess what? What are you? What was your assessments I mean? We haven't even seen Garrett Cole or any COMPA. What would what would your assessment of them? Well. I was more on last night's game hanging the home on the popular thing and I'm like, okay maybe we got. Going here I mean it's GONNA take time for everybody adjust and everything. And I wasn't you know. Nothing really did strike me the first two games. You know just like so-called tuneup exhibition now waiting to see what the real stuff starts on Thursday. You know now when it really counts in the CEO cold got this stuff and when I taxes go. Up Tonight it's GonNa be okay after that that WACK. into. Unsound. What you had any after affects oh, he should be. Okay so far. said he was throwing on the mound today so hopefully You can keep that up have a relapse. No Kidding I. Louis Louis, GonNa plug for Saturday give me. In. The enhanced sports show. It's called virus sucks. Dot Com know. What does? What does okay. Now for Real I always do that the enhanced sports show we're seeing we're heard on Saturdays five to seven PM. East Coast. Time. The number of the callers five, one two. Five four three, four, six, six to RPI again, five, one, two, five, four, three, four, six, six, two, and you know we're GonNa talk about the opening weekend of baseball as whereas whereas the US going is starting to come together. Hockey. Basketball. hopefully football they get their act together I hope I hope. So you got time time between five and seven, a call all newcomers are walking greatly appreciate. Very much. And we have a we have our own wine. You're on with Connecticut sports who? Know matter. I'm not much. So which of Nothing. Much Michael just starting off a little bit little. Major. League baseball because. We saw the exhibition in the mets and the Yankees and those. Who is cut outs of bands in the in the mad city deal and also up Yankees taking care of business you. Check out any of the major league baseball like went on this weekend. No not yet man I just mostly been watching injury reports who's coming who's not coming and things like that trying to get the. You know the real rosters together. So I know who's in the line of. So no lemay you What what's the feeling down about the braves down there? I mean what are the breeze coming in riding high and do lose Freeman? Things of thrown into turmoil. Feeling down in Atlanta Braves. I guess all the brace. Feeling good to spread. He came back and need. The other day. So everybody feels good about that Marquette decided not to come. So that's GonNa hurt a little bit but I think everybody's riding right now man they happy just to Freddie's out there playing. Got That Talisman. Really happy to hear Your Voice Man. Martinez always been kind of a favorite player mind. I always respect players all over not just the mets obviously market because he's not going to be like three thirty hitter that a lot of people believe he's GonNa be like in Baltimore when he was like that's hot prospect pretty he's definitely a leader. at the same time. They. Have such good young talent. As as a huge fan out there now, are you really that concerned missing that guy I mean, you guys got some horses that are better coming in. Yeah, but I mean, we need another left handed Batman and beyond honest like we can't expect Albee's to keep having ceiling seasons and we can expect in the Kunar to sooner or later they'll be down a bit. So we need little more hitting throughout the lineup. So I don't know man we got a couple of. A couple of places in the line of the just look outs. The other thing is going to shorten season. There's there's going to be much trading going on so. kind of I don't have it. Now it's GonNa be hard for you to get it. What someone these teams gets up to some guy, a horrendous start and We'll give it up. I think they're gonNA nobody's talking about that. No, you're right. Nobody's talking about that. What do you do for Fire Sale and windy you do it. Because, I mean with a sixty games emphasize how could you know everybody's GonNa be pretty much close to condition I mean even giants should be so bad to where they're just out of it. You know. What's the deal with calling up players I? Mean I know a lot of minor league teams are shut down what how are they GonNa? When they can call guys up and mean, what's the plan for that? Yeah I have no idea man I don't just send looks down the day. That they. Even. Practice Games with the guys that don't make the full roster and keeping them available in practice. How much? I don't know because. Interest. Squad scrimmage is how much you really get out of it. The other thing is I think with the fact that you know this virus hanging over our heads you can't avoid be loose with a trade even if you fall out of it because you might. Get an outbreak you're not having a players feel team. So I. Think it's GonNa be. A season where what you've got right now is pretty much what you can follow through through most of the season and I don't perceive a lot of. Rating. Yeah, that'd be crazy, make a trade, and then the guy comes tonight fourteen days joined a year. That would be crazy. Yeah. I like Ta. I liked what you said though it's very on point it hits hard man you know that window wide open the we've said it before you said everyone knows it as a baseball fan that windows wide open the Pittsburgh Pirates Dan can dream. Tampa Bay is my darkhorse man la La India. No I. Mean I. Think Tampa. I. Mean. The time. Now it's too quickly strike so like any team could really win it if they get out to a hot stars. Right. And then what? What ten games issue the young Free Much but you know of course the You know. Jacob degrom is one of the few years with only a couple of more than wins so. You're have to win and win ten anymore like that. Anymore twenty game winner they're going to be rare rare rare. Are. The dinosaurs Hayes did you live down in in? Of course, college football. area needs a big our big college football guy I saw this that stood out today. fbis one hundred and fourteen days canceled already and FCS three, hundred, seventeen and to three hundred and fifteen games. Are we going to be able to get College Football Games football season in this year? So I I think they're doing everything in their power to try to figure out a way to to squeeze one out with you know playing in conference and all this other stuff they're trying to come up with. But this essentially man, how do you keep people safe when professional leagues we're spending millions of dollars are having trouble keeping people say how you do that at the college level? How do you have athletes on the team when you don't have students on campus like all of it just kinda crazy and then like the smaller schools that check receiving schools. They're not fielding a team so you don't get to beat up on them on your. I. I don't know I. It just seems like having practices, and since I think about young men and. Yeah, not the most sanitary folks out here and I think they're going to do a good job. Hundred hundred and five guys on the team like we already talked about as kids in Alabama were trying to get each other infected. I mean it's just you. You're not the smartest when you're when you're college age kids and it's going to be difficult I think to. Keep everybody safe to be arrested after really what frankly we all want to but. there's a lot of potential. things that can go south real quick with the whole idea. Unfortunately yeah. I'm hoping they squeeze it out open and or they can. But I mean those numbers are stark already a game of they canceled it now. I mean every day it seems like somebody else and like we talked about before with team that have no reason they're not going to be playing. Games, chips, they didn't they're not going to get. Mark. These mid majors who lose an of a date with Alabama with Michigan date. State, which usually gets big money they could rise they might just say forget it. I'm not going to do it Now as anything else on your mind they you've been watching any of the NBA or getting a clean bill of health from what I hear. Ready to radio for with the NBA, you got any thoughts on the NBA. Yeah. I mean they're on the same program. The NFL is on try hard and hope. Right. It works hopefully they can. You know finish the season and we'll see but just one college thing let's say every everything's canceled and they tell us no college football this year if a couple of months later they tell making create a couple of one offs I think all of us were signed up for that to watch like a one off game but bama gets Oklahoma or something I. think that's what we'll get like almost barnstorming type of limbaugh you show it. Or on TV whatever I, think fans will be happy to see that. It'd be good. Well, we talked about last week You know the big five or talking about breaking off from the NCAA 'cause they're not happy with Mark Emmerick? We now he runs lace and because they're the guys who pretty much dictate the television contracts and everything else they five conferences they're talking about leaving the MCA behind it going off in their own which. I could see happening you know I could see that happen very easily they sit there and go you know we don't want to be restricted by what the NCAA does but I don't know how that would lead to the other sports such as basketball football it worked for I don't know about basketball do you have any an and I? Well. There's no reason to comply with the NCWA like the only reason they have a torty is to give you the idea that student athletes and amateurism, and that whole thing that the NCWA kind of sales in order not to pay the players if they can't provide that anymore because now they look like hypocrites and people are kind of waking up to the idea. This is probably not a good system at that point what what are what are they to the power five? So I'm sure to five like. League and do our thing. Why are we waiting on these guys to come down with the compliance committee and and? Penalize people for these. You know silly infractions in order to make themselves look legitimate. So that whole building in Indianapolis to come down the NC double as a terrible cartel organization and I'll say that until it's gone. I agree with you. We talked about it last week. It's Tom. I think this is a real good time to do everything. You can to get away from them. They're already instituting the paying the players for their likeness and trying to get around it that way. So why not use this opportunity to make something good out of it and get rid of those guys putting money in their pockets for doing nothing. Khan and we all see through. No doubt. Right now is a thank everybody in brings the stuff that table as usual will be back on a Thursday night calls again and then night. I'm y'all. You. Backed out. Nice from Atlanta Great Guy always brings a a wealth of stuff to the table We have a lot of clean up in of course, in the seven thirty hour, we're GONNA break down the mcaa NFC east rookie camps the other going to beg to maybe if they can make that kind of division something more than he and. The least but one thing that came out in the last few days of Cam. Newton. Being very unpatriotic with the and I don't mean that in a national sense as much as in a Bill Belgian. Style sense where he came out with a tweet saying he's GonNa make all the other teams who passed on them feel bad I don't think it's a big deal, but it's very much outside of the new. England way of doing business what do you guys think about it? They choose. Yeah I think that you know is Cam Cambodian Cam but I didn't think it was overall like a bad thing I think he was just saying that he wants to prove himself and you know he wants to make these teams pay that didn't pick up on him and I think some of what he said was Kinda taken out of context in my opinion I, don't think he's I think he's had the talk from mobile check at this point if they brought him in, they signed him, they brought him in they they're they're basically telling him he's got to compete for the Job So he he understands he's starting to understand the Patriot Way and I think bill's already had a talk with him. I don't think they'll be a whole lot more you know coming out of his mouth that's that's GonNa be against what the bill check book says, but you know this was something that I kinda saw coming in the sense that he he does WanNa prove these teams that didn't sign him and that thought that he was done, he wants to prove that he you know he still got it. So I kind of understand where he's from in that sense. Well let me ask you questions both you guys is it worked so well for twenty years doing it the button down Patriot way you know we we think one thing but we say another always, we don't let you know thinking but let's say that's not the way the modern athlete. Does. Not have on walks does not how they act that's the acting my college. We've you see it's I I mean great coaches adjust to I mean don. Shula went from being a run oriented goats to surpassing all over the place with with Dan Marino you know the modern athlete you have to adjust to I. Guess you think Bella Checks will evolve in the way he lets his players act with having him up there or will you need to? I think I didn't show on. Of the rapid fire yet joe is definitely nick. Certain. Times are changing Bob Dylan. Style you know. The green coaches everyone and their brother knows you know they cater to their best their talent, the talent on the roster. So. Yeah. Bell. Check is brilliant. He's he's maybe the best coach of all time. Love Him I respect. To the death Peter that offense we said that Ad. NAUSEAM. Already I think maybe they'll check. Now you often Tom Brady kind of like speaking his mind and Tampa. Maybe maybe Bella check is ready to kind of evolve and recognized that some of the top athletes like to you know, get their voice out there and need just real quick. To totally agree with NEAT. You. Know. I can't do the former number. One Pick heisman trophy guys resume is better than anyone pretty much. So yeah, he he kinda felt like you know got done dirty. So yeah. I I me that he didn't really George totally. Ridiculous he's he's a crowd big time athlete any hungry and he wants the world to know that you know he's he's motivated him to I. think that's a big thing challenging himself. He's put out there that he's holding himself accountable by saying that if you think about it now everyone's GonNa be expected them to really be great. Okay people were calling three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, zero, one is connected sports. Guys would take phone call all night long except we have a guest coming up reading up from eight to eight thirty right now, we're going to break into a little breakdown of the rookie. That, we can expect to see coming into the NFC which natives put together for us Nate what team you want to start out with Well I figured we start with the boys. With the Star on their helmet just because they do have a following and we'll hit on them I just because they're the cowboys and they were going into the draft looking for a linebacker for cornerback probably looking for another offensive lineman but wide receiver was in need and when they picked at seventeen and CD, lamb was still on the board you know they I feel like they thought they. They just felt they had to pull the trigger and I think it's a good pick You know CD lamb six to two hundred pounds runs a four or five forty I mean the guy. Was Amazing. It was an all American sixty, two catches thirteen hundred, twenty, seven, yards, fourteen touchdowns. He's a playmaker The cowboys already have that Amari Cooper who is a sure handed pass catcher he is a big target but now they've got a burner and they've got a young burner who can fly with the best of them and it's just a he's a highlight reel waiting to happen. So I think you know picking CD land was a no brainer he's already. Got That Number Eighty Eight Jersey donned on his back and I think he's GonNa be something special for the cowboys so I love that pick They also came back in round two and got Stefan digs brother trayvon digs out of Alabama and I think that once again, that was the best player available they've Lost Byron Jones in the off season they they needed a corner and they took the best one on the board. So I really. their first two picks and then came back in the third round and Gotten Ville Gallimore who was a defensive tackle out of Oklahoma six to three or four redshirt senior played a lot of football games. He actually was from Ontario Canada and was the top prospect out of Canada and Twenty fifteen. He comes with a really good resume third team all American thirty tackles seven and A. Half tackles for loss four sacks. Two four fumbles got a great motor active hands pretty quick off the snap. So I think that I'd give them a B. Plus just with those first three picks are really liked what they did and think that they added to this football team that that was pretty good. Last year. What What did you guys think of those three guys? You want take it. I Alex. Oh Yeah. Well. The Eagles padding their site then on guy like Didi lamb made your your You know you bring it straight through Reddaway as always. I mean I was sitting there on draft night like Oh. My Gosh. This guy slipping he's slipping he's flipping the bird I knew how he rose men I knew Doug Peterson we're like salivating they should have moved up. who they traded with to get see the cowboys I believe they've moved a future second or third. The Eagles should have done that in a heartbeat they hesitate. The cowboys they love trying to you know get one up on their their hated rival eagles, the cowboys switched, and like you said they, they already have Amari Cooper. It's kind of like it wasn't. It was a luxury pick when a guy has to be the next maybe like Randy Moss or Beckham. Falls to the late teens I don't care who you haven't receiver. You just pull the trigger. So. Yeah. I mean I think that kind of just one the draft for the Cowboys Room I love what you talked about what the the Canadian background of the other player. So I mean I mean when you when you when you hit a Grand Slam, the first gaining. The rest is Kinda gravy. So yeah, I don't like the boy I don't like the boys but I got gotta respect their drafts. Well for me is always Dallas seems to make the right moves, but can it worked out on feel porn? They're one of those teams that they're kind of like a fantasy team. You look at them and go my God every time they've got work and it doesn't work out. There's always something missing would just team ever since you know the the troy, Aikman era in Tony Romo when he had the they had teams and I mean in the last couple of years, they've supposed to been the team to make the big. Move. But you had the rams jump over them, and then you had the forty niners jump over now you Mike McCarthy coming in I think the bigger question over anything I. Think the draft is solid. There's not about a argue with any living about the draft just like a couple of years ago when they reinvented invented their offensive line and made that monster and offensive line, you can't you can't go against anything they do. But if there's something missing in Dallas in will Mike McCarthy have. Things they need to put this all together and make them. Dangerous in the playoffs because. He had Aaron Rogers up in Green Bay for years only had one ride. Did it with Super Bowl? So I mean Dallas everything was good like I said, you know it just it's GonNa. It's GonNa be what goes on between the one that it'd be. Okay. But as far as their draft, you gotta give it high be. A break. Everything. They picked with what they needed in. No argument. Enjoy I. Think would you have? Would you have an all all worlds? Maybe an all time top ten. I'm not gonNA take him as such but I mean. Fuck is. An incredible player then you have. Just, an elite elite off at the one three all pros on the line. Now they have. Now, they add like one of the best receivers one of the best side in the last ten years I mean. Let's let's look at the Honest truth there. It's GonNa come down that Prescott. That's what I. Yeah I think that I think that you know they feel like what was lacking was was the coaching and I think that's why they made that move and brought Mike McCarthy in and now he's got to produce. He's gotTa prove that he's The guy and he can get them over the hump. well, time will tell. Our. A where we moving on from Dallas big. Yeah we're going to go right into the the redskins or who whatever their name may be from your going forward, the news. Yeah. The Washington something they've been in the news quite a bit with the name change and Let's be honest. They brought in a superstar and I'm not just saying that being a Buckeye homer number first round second pick overall they didn't waste any time they didn't. They didn't listen to trade offers they sat right there. and they took chase young who is a A generational talent I mean, let's be honest. The guy looks like a super hero out on the field these six five to sixty, four, thirty, three and three fourths arms ten chance. He led the nation with sixteen and a half sacks only played in twelve games serving a two game suspension. So sixteen and a half sacks, twelve starts. That's you know that's saying something right there and then he also had. Twenty one tackles for loss I think the biggest thing about chase you on that impresses me was that he got better. Each year at Ohio state mean the guy came in five star talent out of the Matha. High School in Maryland. So he's kind of coming home in the sense but he he just got better every year and obviously Larry. Johnson works wonders with that defensive line. But just seeing him get better every year he won the bid Narvik. He win the Ted Hendricks. He won the broncos. Award he was in the Heisman race I think they they hit a home run with that pick. They had some good defensive Lineman with sweat with Ryan Kerrigan, they'd got Jonathan. So they do have a pretty decent pass rush, but you couldn't pass on chase young and they did the smart thing I think in in taking him where they did I. They compromise you know they comp him to. Julius Peppers he just had. A huge leap in production and he's just that quick twitch athlete that you cannot coach. He's got those things you cannot coach I mean he he he brings it with this talent. So I think that was an amazing pick after that I kind of think the redskins draft I I didn't agree with all their picks. They didn't pick again until the round three pick to where they took in Tonio Gibson out of Memphis. He's a He's a versatile player. He's explosive. He ran a four, three, nine forty at the combine I played two years of junior college ball at East Central Community College, and Mississippi So he is he is a talented guy that's played some football but I just what is he is he a wide receiver is running back. I don't know he played both at Memphis he had thirty eight receptions for seven, hundred, thirty, five yards he had thirty three carries for. Three hundred sixty five three hundred, sixty, nine, yards, twelve touchdowns overall. So he played a little bit of water severi played a little bit of running back, but you know what? What is this guy? I don't know you know that's what we're going to have to find out. So I think they would've been better served just getting a standard wide receiver to help Dwayne Haskins evolved into the franchise quarterback but you know we'll see maybe they know something I don't Time will tell but I did like the pick they got in the fourth round. They came back and took with the second pick. In the fourth round they took Sadique channels who was the six, four, three, hundred, and twenty one pound offensive tackle from the national champion Lsu Tigers Basically the only reason he fell to the fourth round was that he only started nine games he missed six games because of disciplinary action. So I think that hurt his draft stock and to pick him. Up in the fourth round was a huge get for them but you know there's question marks surrounding them. What kind of motor does this guy have You can keep them out of trouble. So you know there's question marks guy but he is a talented player They came back in the thirty six pick in the fourth round and took Antonio Gandhi Golden, who is six, four, two, hundred, and twenty, three pounds. Receiver out of liberty. So they went small college with this guy, but he did I did see him at the senior bowl and he does have a lot of talent and obviously has a huge frame pretty good size ran a four, six, forty at six, four to twenty three. So he can get up the field and can be a good possession receiver for them but. Overall I. Give Him a be just because of chase young these other guys I think are question marks and they're going to have to prove it. Wants to get there. I mean it's hard to go away from tation on not did not give him an I mean he could be awards, Taylor Julius peppers that type of impact glare coming right in a box of game one I think the biggest questions in are going to be and that guy gets in I mean, could you see him being Allen Tamara site pretty pretty bad type of guy where did you play running back kind of a slot receiver? Kind of guy maybe that's how they envisioned because the thing I would ask and this is somebody's GonNa need. A lot of weapons around him unite discusses at length you know my about the. quarterbacks for the big universities you better make sure they have enough weapons around The thing about asking which is really gonNA I find Intriguing back that. Alex Smith is still there and he's the only urban Meyer quarterback who actually worked out in the froze. And you know all these other quarterbacks never seem to make maybe Alex Smith to get getting a little coaching out to take with every Meyer give you in college and moved out into the pro ranks not a big hashing believe I'd I say one thing that defense of the giant scares me and I mean that alone that defense could give cast 'cause enough time or short deal where he could develop into golf compensate who knows where he goes from there Alex you. Been Well, let me let me go on skin a little bit. And then we'll move into my dirty birds will move into my philly analysis. Yeah. The skins man that you made it interesting point earlier certain teams like almost Dallas. They almost have vanity rosters you look at them. You said they had a good dio and Joe. You're always very on point you know your football as good as anyone. But. Yeah I mean they added like a Ryan Kerrigan Dave brought so many good players under Shawn Springs passed away but they've had some incredible drastic but then they've also. SPENT, really early round first round picks on like Jonathan Allen in Alabama he to be like all guys. The next Reggie white I think he's a role player so but The, they're going to nail it. She's youngest since ended he's General Generational as native. So, they're starting to make them right pets. I just thought it's almost like if something's amiss. On Dallas is often. Something is missing on the Washington deep because Lord knows they load up in the draft year after year Washington goes abby. And they have all these big names. And then I can watch the Eagles scored three touchdowns them and a quarter. So I it remains to be seen. They've got to walk the walk out. Defensively. George, you want me to transition into billy. Name was GONNA do to Philly, and then you can take them on. He'd had to trinity I got the. We go we didn't do filling next I had the giants, but we can. We can go ahead and jump into Philly. Yeah, we got the you know they did have their biggest needs. We're wide receiver, and actually I, agree with Alex I think they should have gone up and either got You know one of the kids from Lsu or you know got up and got CD lamb or one of the kids from Alabama just I liked those receivers a little bit better than who they they sat back and waited to twenty one and took Jalen Rieger out of TCU He's five eleven to six was a junior coming out he had a really good. Season in two thousand, eighteen, where he was the team's MVP and had seventy two catches for over a thousand yards averaged fourteen point seven to catch and had nine touchdowns. But he took a big step back in production in twenty, nineteen, forty, three catches six, hundred eleven, yards, five touchdowns. So you know was that due to him taking a step back or was that due to the trouble they had on offense and quarterback I think it was more on the quarterback and the offense I think he's still a good player but just like. Those big faster receivers a little bit more than him but he's a good player. His Dad played in the NFL Monte Rigor and was a former star Texas tech. So he does have the NFL pedigree and should be a good player forum is as far as returning kicks as he did a lot of that at Tcu, now I really loved the second round pick they came back and got jalen hurts a lot of the Philly fans were were not happy with the pick considering they just signed. Carson. Wentz long contract but Jalen hurts. Is a great talent player I mean if you remember back to when he was a freshman at Alabama, he was first team all this CC freshman. All American. Let him to the National Championship just a just a great player and then you know we saw we all know what happened were they to came in, took the position over ended up leading them to the SEC championship game, and then Jalen hurts came back in as me and you talk about Joe He he stepped up off the bench went seven for nine, eighty, two yards and. Threw touchdown touchdown to win the SEC championship game and that just Kinda showed the character of Jalen hurts and then he went on to home ah picked up right where Kyle Murray left off and won the big twelve championship for the sooners. So I I love this guy and I went back March a lot of tape of him and to be honest I I told. Alex I. I didn't see a whole lot that he can't do and you know Carson Wentz is a good quarterback but he has gone down several times in the last few years and you gotta be available to be successful, and now you know if he does go down, they don't have to they don't have to roll out some forty year old padding trend that. Know can't can't win the playoff game they get to the playoffs this year when it goes down now they got jalen hurt. So I really did like the pick I also liked They got Kvant Wallis in the fourth round and then the third round they got debut on Taylor out of Colorado I wasn't in love with him but I did like the safety out of Clemson von Wallis so. Overall I give them about C. plus but they did they did get some good some some good talent and I think I think some of these guys will help out right away like I said Jalen reader especially in the return. Game. All right. Let's go ahead. Yeah thanks God. Nate awesome breakdown man Yeah I'm south to talk Philly. Philly. Yeah Reeker I'm GonNa Echo nate sediments. Rieger again, not gonNA beat up beating the drum for an eighteen time they were in love with td lamb. They didn't make the move and then get aggressive they suffered the consequence when. Jerry Jones landed there guy I was surprised. When it took Rieger I thought a guys. I. Thought I mean Dr, Jefferson is a tall. Very durable, very efficient receiver out of obviously Joe, boroughs boy I you. I that I had eggs number two they passed him and it's very fascinating as a hardcore eagles fan they took a Sean Jackson. Clone rigors a little bit more cut. He's a little bit more you know. and. Built out but he's her. Okay. So. Went went and especially Doug Peterson They date when they are really kicking the you know what and taking no prisoners they are throwing the ball deep. they're fast they're that. They'RE NOT GONNA slow down they love the deep ball ever since days the Andy Reid they love to throw and Doug Peterson is you know Andy Eddie reads second son so they love to throw. So Rieger. It's interesting regardless of dishonesty ridiculous actions Recently with that ridiculous instagram they're over. Jackson's and other guy can't stay healthy. So they're planning for the future always young. Jeffrey. On their current rosters. He's already a slower guy up possession guys. They're really lacking speed over the top. and then. Just on that speed team Need you know this guy very well Gee Arteaga whiteside they. They burn the second round pick last year on this highly touted white white out from. Stanford. And the Guy I've never seen a guy looks so unprepared and so slow on an NFL yoke he was such a book. So. Yeah. alshon older alcon also has been causing problems locker sean injured and causing a lot of problems socially and they pick a couple of bucks. So Rieger kind of fits them They add another staying on the same topic of wideouts real quick. They added John Hightower, he's a burner for Boise. The quest walking league another fast. Just over the top tickets off. Guy I don overall. You know I'm in love with. you know sometimes the truth hurts no pun intended. Yeah. You have to have a credit turn falsely I want wants to play forever he could be injured week too. So, now he's like they'd set. You don't want to rely on some half that. well, if walked. From Clemson, obviously ever sentimental Clemson, my favorite player ever dock and I don't think he's got a for going to resemble him but he's a hard hitting safety. He was a two year captain out in a great program and Clemson this guy brings it brings the hammer I, like his potential and then joke. Like you said, they added a few linebackers very raw. The projected. The guy they added third round I think he plays he's played three years of football in his life. So very raw. He goes for whatever reason. I love trotter in the old linebackers Byron Evans they don't value linebackers. So the if project linebacker. Mass and then lastly. One thing the eagles are not getting any younger one area is offensive. Line Kelsey might retire tomorrow or next year. Computers, they just brought back. They're all pro future hall of Famer is thirty nine years old. He's come up to Achilles tear. He's almost three hundred, sixty pounds. So there and then brandon. Brooks. They're all pro guard. towards the a couple of weeks ago. So they have some holes in that all important off. It's one. So they added a pair of Auburn Guys Jeff Smith goals in the fourth of big kind of a big efficient offensive lineman. You could be plug and play written right away and then they added knit you'll get a kick out of this one. That Guy that Guy Prince from Auburn I Prince Chico, wanted to in the seventh round he's about six eight and a half. Offensive tackle. Again, they're of rolled the dice I think overall. me and me and very the overwhelming majority of fans were a little bit dismayed early on they didn't get DVD. That we were a little bit surprised by her. I'd give. But that to me, they made it back up to me. By adding succeed and some offensive. Lineman. A solid B.. I'll give them the overall. For me again, it's it's another one of the the NFC has to do. Transformation and get back to where they're respected division and all of its to me with the coaching It's a solid draft. Would I look at a Jalen hurts thing I I think that they're bringing an insurance policy against wins they they were in the Super Bowl wanted three years ago and having sniff at sense They're. Being that was young grown in ready go for multiple super bowl and again like the cowboys. They were overtaken one year by the Rams in one year by twenty. Nine. Doug Peterson looked like he was the new coach, the guy who wasn't afraid of guys like ballot check ready to go one on one with him. I think he knows that he's kind of on the clock right now he's had the weapons chaplain spend. You've been the best team in the worst division in the NFC and hasn't been able to get out of it to make any any ways and every they were built for the big gotta be built in the playoffs and Carson went is yet to win a play or be a playoff performer. So I think that's why Jalen hurts insurance policy. Yeah. I'll give out there but they're great of be but like it's going to be what McCarthy does in Dallas what Rivera does in DC Peters gotta give me the Peterson of two years three years ago not someone we've seen the last two years and then we'll see what Joe Judge. That's my feeling on it. It just it's. It's like last year they two years ago. They had a lot of DB's go down and then last year as Alex said, they had alshon Jeffery get hurt they had to sean get hurt and then you know, did they really get better by getting rigor I mean I I don't know I mean he's he had a good season in eighteen but. I wasn't real impressed with his nineteen film, but you know we'll see what happens he. He didn't have a great quarterback, but you know the giants were the last team on here they they definitely needed an offensive lineman. This goes back to their busted pick of Eric Flowers a couple years ago a lot of Miami who was just just a horrible horrible offensive lineman. I think he's down in I think he actually is down in Miami now they've moved him to guard and he's he's decent guard, but you know they drafted him to be a book in tackling he was out of off. Their roster within three years so that that was a bust they're hoping that their first round pick four overall this year we'll do a little bit better. They took injured Thomas Out of Georgia six, five, three, fifteen he started as a freshman at right tackle was a freshman all American and sophomore, and he he moved to left tackle. So you know this guys played a lot of football obviously left early as junior but he started every game since he got there and it's just you know I think he was the most sure pick. He was the first offensive tackle off the board and I think that he Took the safest choice with Andrew Thomas? I think a lot of people thought they might take Bechtel out of Louisville that the jets got just because he was a little bit maybe a higher upside. But as as far as the safe pick goes they took Andrew Thomas and I think he'll be just fine Their second pick was in round two, pick four overall Xavier mckinney a safety out of. Alabama this kid is you know everything you want in the safety I. I was a little bit surprised that he went as late as he did he was first team all this. He see ninety five tackles five and a half tackles for loss three sacks four force fumbles, three interceptions just a high football I q guy a lot of toughness. He's very versatile be able to cover those high-density. Only ran like a four, six, nine, forty. So I think that might be one of the reasons he dropped a little bit but he's football fast. So I think he'll be just fine and then pick a pick three for them was round three, thirty fifth pick overall and that's a local guy from You guys they got offense tackle. Matt per out of Yukon big guy six, seven, three. Eighteen he's from the from the Bronx, New York and originally from Kingston, Jamaica and his family moved to the to the Bronx. He is a huge man I mean he passes the eye test he's got good athletic potential but he's he's a little bit of a project. So you know I think I think it was a good move getting another offense attack on the board just you. To be there and you know be a backup probably as I two years maybe a year three starter but overall, I gave him I give him a C. Plus B. Minus 'cause I did like the Andrew Thomas and the Savior mckinney picks But later around guys you know I wasn't as high on We'll have to see whether or not those guys pan out but I did I do like. Xavier mckinney he's an Alabama safety and those ten to those tend to work out in the NFL with ha ha Clinton Dix and you know Fitzpatrick and Pittsburgh all this. We could go on for hours talking about all the safeties that have excelled in the NFL coming out of Alabama. So I really liked the around to pick for Xavier mckinney starting at safety for them right away you. Guys. Feel brawl. They finally buckled down they didn't play as sexy or cute. They addressed their glaring issue off sensitive line editor, Thomas. Murga with you I know you Kinda have to look a little school well, I didn't realize it was. Pretty. Cool. He's a he's a bronx. Scott. Joe In mckinney's. mckinney's a hard hitter I like to I like to. Give plus. I- giants have to fix their defense I, mean as much as people can complain about Eli over the last three or four years They gave way too many teams too many games in the third and fourth quarters with a lead they they gave up leads more than I think I've seen him since I've been alive as a giant fan I mean he would ridiculous I mean you can't continually give away the game third quarter. Against teams that are not even better really better than us. So I mean that's something you're asked us to giant fan I think the fact that they would have been. in west, you get a chase young unless you get somebody you know like a change Joey Bosa somebody that you know is transitional. Go. And hopefully with the death, you'll find a bunch of good players and I think that's what they did. They got the we went through the office of one and they need it like you said, mckinney is a good a good addition to into their. Backfield's they need someone is smart and can do it. So I think they did everything they went with great We have somebody on the line right now I wonder if our friend, rob. Adams on second. With the. Guy This. That was a good guess. It is rob Adams. Good. How Gel? How's everything? Doing very well doing very well. How are you doing? You know we're we're doing. Okay. Surviving the pandemic as best as we can everybody's healthy and I think that's all we can ask for. Why you're on here with me, Alison Natan we're getting right started right in with start with an overview. When you're looking at what's been going on? I, know nobody has a crystal ball Do you think we're going to get both seasons or do you think there's one or two sports again get a full season what sport are you worried about most and you think we have a chance of getting all these this stuff done we've been looking so forward to. I do think the NHL. Has the best chance they're going to play in Canada Canada's numbers are good. They're not letting letting yet letting you back again. You know once you're in you're in you're not. You know you're not coming back So I like the NHL Chances I think they're going to have a Stanley Cup raised there I think once the NBA settles then I think they're going to be okay as well. I, think the bubble has a good chance to survive baseball worries me because of the traveling elements but we're GONNA play there's GonNa be a baseball season how much of it I don't I'm less. And that we'll see a full baseball season. when you Rob. Joke I'm sorry. Rob. You sit there and diverse background. He called some of the biggest games in Connecticut state his free. four, hundred games. Called I mean get down that's that's remarkable i. We Really Fun I was really great, but we didn't I saw conversation on Sunday and we're kind of getting up to hit it hard tonight about you know I kept in Tampa routes and my dad mom or not in that area I tried to get out there. What some of the What's the deal on the minor league level because right now I mean they're kind of like waiting being right? I. Mean What's what's the heartbeat on that overall operation? Well Minor League. Baseball is You know we're all upset. We're all pretty sad in the minor league baseball side Obviously, the opera season got got whacked by Major League Baseball. We don't have the players anyway social distancing wouldn't work. You know I. I'm with the Hudson Valley renegades and our GM and President Steve Liners said to me there's no way we will play in an empty. Stadium we we rely too much on revenue from ticket sales. Major League Baseball doesn't need that as much minor league baseball does. So there's certainly all those elements going on a lot of sadness with minor league baseball, and then the bigger thing is what about the contraction that might go on and minor? League. Baseball because there's talk of up upwards to forty to fifty teams that could be eliminated thankfully the. Aren't one of those teams and I'm really grateful for that If anything the rumor is that the renegades would become a full season team one, hundred, thirty, eighteen games team give or take So they were play a full season. Like survive as well. So there's hope for some of us, but there is a lot of uncertainty as we look into a twenty twenty one minor league. It's Really interesting. Given. You know Tampa, Bay minor league system and. Then I'm sorry just to close out Rob Rob you know calls the shots on that on a minor league affiliate for Tampa in Florida has been hit so hard I mean that's another tough tough. Deal with I mean, it's gotta be tough. It. You know it is tough. It's tough for the renegades as an organization of stuff for the raises an organization. It's tough for everybody obviously and have the raise in the marlins are going to get through it and then of course, the Bible in Orlando that's you know it's all going to be fascinating stuff to watch going on. Hey Rob, this is nate I just was wondering are do you know you're talking about the organizational? Do you know what's happening to these players? These minor league players that are you know basically out of having a season what are any of them GonNa be primed to get called up? Are they are they just out? You know Kinda waiting to see what happens at this point. Right now, nate, it is an entire weight and the for all of these minor league players Certainly there are the big time prospects. You know every team has got them the Yankees had the day Garcia's of the world guys like that but. The the younger guys, the guys that are playing. You Know Hudson Valley for instance is a short season a that's you know it's a bottom rung. It's basically a rookie league. They're trying to work their way up. You don't come down you go up at a fallen in a day you're out of baseball Those guys is are all right now in a pure wait and see mode and everyone's on hold on twenty twenty one. Scary awful time. Well, that's gotta be. Tough for. Those guys. You know. You Know Rob we about baseball and it's going to be such a short season. I think the the trading deadline is August thirty first. If I'm right at give if they have it or. Do you perceive that we were talking before and I don't think there's going to be a lot of moving I. Don't think teams can afford. What if they have an outbreak when it's that happens I. Don't think teams can give up and especially a shift like someone was saying on radio the other day figured the Yankees might arm available to go Garrett Cole they might reach out and give up one of their prime young young arms but I think it. I think it would be more close to the best this year about trading. Do you what do you think about that? I agree with you I I. Don't think we're GONNA see a whole lot of moves this year I think it's just it's a unique year. It's a year in which we all have to adjust, and there's been so much optimism and so much conversation about it Everybody's gotTa take on it but my opinion is This is unlike anything we've ever seen and I don't think we're GONNA. See a lot of moves going on I think baseball's. A chance that you know the pirates are playing awful and they would give a piece up somebody or somebody like that I suppose but it's a sixty game sprint anybody's in play coming into this thing, and that's the scary part. That's the part to me were baseball to get in a lot of trouble because it would be embarrassing to have. For argument's sake you know the Marlins and the Oriole somehow winding up in a world series you know what I mean that would be dangerous. But let's. But, it could happen. That's the scary thing. A team gets hot for sixty games. They could be right here in the middle it. Rob You know it's funny I I I actually really deep down I. Love the idea that you know anyone anything's possible here. For lack of a better phrase, you know the windows wide open we're talking about it with our buddy nods. Out Atlanta earlier before we were joined by. it is a little bit a little bit daunting though like if that, if that kind of nightmare sports comes through if you get to. Total. Bottom dwellers both naked in. That's a little bit too much to stomach I. Think I think you're raised Tampa might do it. you have a I mean this is my question and then they job and keep it keep it moving I, mean who who might be your your personal prediction for world series. It's hard to argue Yankees dodgers right now, Alex because these two teams are considered to be the best in the business right now the Yankees have all the pieces they've got everybody back. That's where the pandemic is the favored. The Bronx bombers judge looks good. He had a couple home runs the other night against the mets although I think three of us could hit home runs against that mets pitching the other night. You know I think the team just looks much healthier Paxton looking like he may be a factor as well. Pick back Tommy John's so there's a lot of good on the Yankee side of things health wise and the dodgers would mookie you know and I feel I feel for red SOx nation It's tough to talk about Mukhi out in La But The dodgers can be right in the thick of this thing as well. You hate to go straight chalk right now Yankees dodgers feels like say if there's No doubt you got sound like they got stanton back to play and he hit a home run last night we were talking about the the organization and these minor league players. You know another another group of people that I'm feeling bad for no rob down here in Tennessee and We have a a cubs affiliate here in AA for the Tennessee. SMOKIES and I you know who I feel bad for the fans I mean. Some people can't afford to go to major league games and they go to minor league games and now with the pandemic hidden, the way that things are going there may be no fans that any baseball games but. I know with no minor league ball it's GonNa hit hit people that that take their family to the Games pretty hard. What have you heard around there from fans or anybody disappointed about not being able to go see some minor league ball this year. You're right on the money. You're you're absolutely on the money the biggest loss for minor league baseball is smaller towns in the smaller cities you know think about yes fish. New York. Okay We're we're fiscal New York where the renegades play there in the shadow of of the Hudson Valley and getting into New York City. Okay fine. But other places don't have those options. You know what Burlington Vermont got got the lake monsters. There's you can't run the Boston and go stand outside of Fenway Park that easily you know you're a four hour drive away at that point. So what I'm saying is it's a big loss for your summer entertainment and all these might not draw. Eye Bulging numbers he's jaw dropping attendance numbers. They still matter. You know they still matt full that they provide. Entertainment for the summer even if people aren't necessarily paying attention to the game and we'll be the first. To admit, the game is sometimes secondary. You know it's the in between inning stuff and it's the food and. Stuff going on around the ballpark but it's all part of what gets you into the ballpark loss here. Definitely You know arrive we were talking before to is about the idea of making up players it's a great theory they're talking about today about PD Lonzo doing some I can there and we all know it's legendary the conversation at first baseman and catcher have catches up with players either at the plate or when you're on first base But as I was saying, you gotTa make sure you got someone glitz someone doesn't carry on a conversation What do you think about the idea of making players? Well I. Think they picked the right Guy Impede Lonzo you know love or hate the mets pete on so is really difficult to dislike he is such a good person. He's Paul and Baseball needs a guy like him You know the three home runs last year off and it he helps revive. The idea of the old Willy Willy Mickey and the Duke argument now it's judge versus Alonzo. It makes for some good discussions around New York in terms of WHO's the best player stuff like that and Alonzo's got the right personality to be miked up. We'll give great great dom. And Baseball needs that kind of guy. So I I think he's the right Guy Trout is wonderful I love trout, Trout's Nas the right guy to do this kind of thing though. Get Rob Ruckman on that. Point Lonzo I'm a big guy but I love players from here to Atlanta to you know California. Yeah, I agree. Drought's is transcendent talent. He's not the right fit he's a little bit too buttoned up for that Alonso like Joe said before you know you want good tax or you want some lively discussion, you WanNa, Tommy Lasorda you want Bobby Valentine. Sean Casey or Lonzo. You've covered some incredible. Tampa Bay's always been blessed by their scouting system to have such great young down through the years. You guys that you called plays for you know coming up through the Tampa system and then. Kind of build on that like maybe who might be a good Tampa Bay rated do that to get miked up. Oh that's a good question among you know the raise aren't flashy organization in a lot of ways you know and that kind of reflected in their manager Kevin Cash. He's not a big. You know he's not a big personality guy the rays of just kind of been there. Now I just missed Longoria at Hudson Valley He was there but he was there. So we that he basically. Basically, hit a ball up to poughkeepsie and they're like, all right to the next level you know so. I JUST I just Miss Josh Hamilton. Thing as well. I did get to see a few guys You Know Edgar Gonzales had a had a cup of coffee with the Padres I got to see him briefly you know some of the other guys who hung around Hudson Valley we're Wade Davis James Shields for a little bit. You know. So there was names that made it through the next level from the rennick which which was fun to watch and you know Tim Beckham started with Hudson Valley you could. See he had a lot of talent. He was the first round draft pick. So a lot of fun to see you know player. It's great developed and great to see them from other teams more sometimes you get advantage and this is where in New York helps us you get to see someone rehabbing like a Carlos Beltran came down to Brooklyn. So I got to see him at Brooklyn and up to touch up in Hudson Valley. So that was kind of Nice as well. That's cool. Yeah, I mean with the games that went on this weekend we did see a little bit of sloppy play out of the gate and everybody probably expected that but with the shortened season with all the time off. What do you think? Do you think that the pitchers have the advantage with this format and seeing the teams that are going to see or do you think the hitters are going to have a better opportunity with the way things are shaping out with the scheduling and with the sixty game season? I think talented pitchers are GONNA be the way to watch. I think that there's have the advantage right now their arms or a little more loose. The bats aren't as loose yet I would think I know for instance, a Dj La- mayhew leads needs a little extra time if you extra at that. just to see him make contact the other night was a good thing. But I do think it leans in favor of the pitcher question. I rap one thing. I Kirk. Sally. Didn't end up with With you when he was coming for Tampa Bay was, did he get through there or no? The game? INCURRED TO SALLY? Oh, no I I saw ca as a high school player at the you know with Maron Ellie on the football field but I didn't get to see them in the minor leagues. I just. You know he didn't make a toss invalid. He was a little higher up. All right. Well. which which is a little bit and go NHL. We never really get to cover any challenge. You WanNA touch base with us about that a little bit. We got the NHL. Playoffs. Coming up and one of the first things that came to mind when the war Mak came up. We all looked at that rangers matchup in the first round and bringing the king out of the closet and dust off some rust and put him against Carolina what's your feeling about giving the king one chance for a ride through the NHL playoffs? Well the problem there. Of course you know Henrik is he's battle tested, but he's not the starter at this point. Certainly, there's that idea that, oh, it's kind of fun to give Henry that last chance and you know in a lot of ways things have soured. fricking. New York You know folks are a little tired of not seeing him get to that next level. Certainly, we saw him get to the to the Stanley Cup final against kings and he played well in that series. There's always been that little frustration when it comes to. Henrik. Lundqvist that. We saw too much of the G. Q. Fashion shoots and not enough fashionable safe to Get when that frustration you know over the years but he has been a great ranger, his numbers going to hang in the rafters all that's going to happen. He's GonNa go to the Hockey Hall of fame and I don't think there's any question, but it's not entirely Henrik's team. So it'll be very interesting to see what the Rangers due. To, a two-goal system in this situation, how will they handle it? I'm GONNA really be fascinated to watch that. Yeah No yeah and rob I want to build on that man i. mean that's the warning. important topic I mean in in the Big Apple Man MSG the Rangers are finally back. The Knicks have been just dreadful for years. So now that they finally have a shining light and I I agree with both you and Joe, you know this time to shine. We don't WanNa get too sentimental and like Joe said which I love a funny quote. You know you don't bring out the rusty blades and put put the old guy on the ice just to have a feel good story I think. They. GotTa Start. The, young guys. Eager, he's very extremely talented young prospects. He's the faster more agile goal. I mean. At. What point? So first of all, you would start Eagle Rob and at what point would you maybe go along with during the game during the series Well I think it depends on excuse me how the series is going and how far down are you know I. If you're not if you're not often the series then yeah I think you, you give Henry Consideration. I just I can't do a feel good. You know my mind is just watched tombstones over the years. And Look I remember eighty six. I wrote it for the red SOx against the mess and eighty six. I Love Billy Buck but you gotTa Stapleton Playing First Base there you know what I mean you can't fielder. WAS ON. The end of the day you know. No doubt. Hey Rob I was wondering to you were talking about the format up there in Canada and it sounded to me like the Eastern Conference. playing in Toronto and the Western Conference is Playing Edmonton. What what happens after that? Did they meet up somewhere? I was I was trying to look and find out what the what the format is once they get to the cup. Basically, the conference finals and the Stanley Cup final will be in Edmonton Everythi. The early early stuff will be split as you said between Toronto and But the rest of it's going to take place out in Edmonton. So I'm I'm fascinated by that I mean I'm into all of it. I can't wait for the NBA as well but there's something about the NHL I tell people this all the time. If you are not a hockey fan, there is nothing like the Stanley Cup playoffs get into it. I. Don't care how empty the building is. You're GonNa Love Stanley, Cup hockey there's nothing like it. Well. The thing about the steelers playoffs this time around everybody has fresh legs everybody's going to be healthy. I, mean. Usually you guys are chipped up or you know dealing with the injuries dealing with just the where down of their bodies from an eighty one game season or eighty two game season going into the playoffs these guys the only question I have I talked to Go Cj Murtala about this last week because you've state very university voicing or men's team and I wondered what he thought. About getting into the mental grind. Batting off. So I know they're going to be prepped fresh legs I. Know they're gonNa be feeling good. I mean Chris Kreider should be healthy things like that should be great for both teams. But the mental grind of playing hockey games back to back. Every other day what do you think that that'd be something you'd be. I would be worried about it because again, it's this brave new world that we just don't know anything about, and so how are they gonNA survive? Mentally you know where the lack of a crowd have any impact on them I don't think will. But at the same time, we don't know until we see this all starts to happen. So I, I'm with you I questioned what this format. Is going to do to all of these players what's going to do to these teams and I think we're GonNa have you know hopefully some great series but I, think we're in for some surprises as well and and that's what makes to me the rangers as dangerous as anybody going into this thing I think is just it's it's a fascinating thing to watch to see who's GonNa raise the COP. Yeah Rob for sure man and you know, let's stick on You Know New York City. Man. Relevant recent the rangers or fight elite back in the game so to speak Very you know the landscape. In. Eastern conference is a tough one not gonna be a cakewalk, but they're you know they're back. They're back in the team they gotta fight her chance. So you look at Pittsburgh, you gotTa Ovechkin, you mighty capital you got of course, Sidney Crosby, and with you see the Rangers right now I was like say, if you'd better schikler shekel if you're a betting man, you see the raiders really having a legit chance to maybe become miracle happened again like the days of Messier and leash and richer. I don't know if I've got the four to to see them in a Miracle Situation I. DO Think Carolina's awfully good. Talent team but the Rangers can pick them off and that's the thing about all this. You know I think it's going to be a lot of fun. You know you mentioned Kreider and there's so much talent in their top the bottom for the rangers and the Rangers the reason I bring that up is they were kind of you know swimming their way through the early part of this. You know and in a regular normal season, we wouldn't have. But here they are all of sudden now patterns upper part trophy you know. So you got a team that's got so much talent on it now with a Hart trophy finalists. Why not take a shot at the ranger I? Think it's going to be a Lotta Fun. Yeah, it's GonNa, be awesome. Yeah it looks like the The bruins are One of the one one seat here to what are the what do you think the chances the Bruins got to win this thing Boston's very good That's a very good squad I if. If the pandemic hurt anybody I, think it might hurt the Boston bruins because it stops there moment and that they were rolling can be hard. Up Again, you know. So they were rolling exactly. They were on fire I. Think you know bruins Rangers down the line would be really fun to see but the bruins awfully if they can get it going, the bruins are going to be very good. And let's go inside the bubble with basketball You know everybody seems to concede is going to be You know probably the bucks against one another to La Teams. Do. You think that like a team like Denver or somebody could get in the way of those that to that La. Collision. I do I. Think you know I think there are a lot of teams that can make some noise in this situation as well. you know you still have to consider there's a lot of talent up and down the the Lakers certainly with Lebron are going to be heard from the clippers. It seems like it's western conference heavy It does seem like honest as time to get there but you know what's going on with the Celtics what's going on with other teams can the next get healthy and caused some trouble I don't think they can I think there are a little too beaten up too many players have failed on them I think you're not wrong to say that it's the box coming out of the east, which will be fun. We haven't seen Milwaukee take a run at an NBA final in a long time you know probably all off the top of my head the guy's name was lew alcindor the last time they made a run you know we're talking about. So. It would be it'd be fun to see that and I love stories like that. You know But you gotTa, you gotTa know that Lebrun and the clippers or those teams are waiting in the western conference I hope I hope we've got surprises because that'll make it more fun for everybody. Yeah Rob sticking stay staying in the bubble so to speak. the I I love. I love NBA Basketball Man I went to a game. Jordan Pippen when I was like fourteen or fifteen out now, the swamp on the medal and playing against off thrust petrifaction. Those guys. So I've been hooked up. Yeah. So The small team the. Market Denver. I'm a big I'm a big blizzard guy. they have a, slimmed-down Carmelo. Anthony now playing small forward to get. Back they have a great young power forward is. BACK DOT com. So they were missing the best two big men for the whole year. Blazers might be able to kind of a crash the party. I'm glad you brought them up I agree with you I agree that the blazers are very much a factor in all of this a lot of talent at. Wide and I was thinking to myself as I finished my last answer. Forgot. Defense. Could Blazers. Awfully good Portland Swat that reminders cernan. Reputation the western conference? So Jack I wonder what you can do to answer. Yeah that we talked with Kaley who's reporter for the rockets last week on our show and she had a lot of good things to say about him but it's it comes down to stars. When you get in this tournament format, we all know that playoff basketball and you know she seemed to be. Pretty high on her team should be and I I i. think they were playing pretty well, but it just comes down to can can harden and whisper do it are you a believer in the in the rocket? Not Enough No not all those other teams I think that Martin spoke. Westbrook so good. I'm not a believer to see them go that far not with these other teams guys there's so much talent in the western conference when you really think about it, you're three teams that we just lined up there, and now you're going to throw the rockets in the next I struggle with the rockets. Yeah. I don't believe in the Antonio either he can. He can get some points scored but you know he's always had trouble on the defensive side and it's GonNa coaches are going to be factor in too and I do not believe Dantonio can get it done. There's no. audio. To do you know ason kid because he has no J.. So There's always a good joke in Oh I. Love It. I. Love it Joe. WanNa stretch a little bit in the NFL nine jumbotron will. Touch on topics we got here. I know you're Pittsburgh steeler fan and You know now that you know the the the great bell check doesn't have brady anymore. What I I know that you guys hate patriots moments much eight the Ravens What's your feeling about Brady leaving in New England or do you think cam going up there? What's your feeling about that? I think Cam if cam becomes an established player. I have no reason to think that he can. But you know I. Know I know Bella check like stiff? I know they're gonNA push that avenue but. I don't see why the Patriots can't still be good. My thing is I'm not GonNa bet against the Patriots until I really see the third done and right now to me, they're not to me the right in the thick of the the AFC east to me. They're still a factor I'M NOT GONNA say sixteen and but can I see a way that the Patriots are eleven and five? Yeah. I absolutely can and I. I can see where there's enough allen with either of the quarterbacks to get the job done for the page I, think it could be really interesting year for Bella check and. This is the chance for Bella check to cement himself just that it is for braiding they will why should they need to they don't but from a certain level to the doubters. Gives these guys a chance to say, Hey, we didn't need the other Brady can go off and do his thing how about Brady against Bella check in the Super Bowl how circle would that be you know? These guys make that ultimate. Meant there's. No doubt and the Patriots you know they had the number one defense in the NFL last year and I think that signing Cam, you know that just gives them a fifty percent chance to to succeed I mean they're going to have to put those two guys up against each other and they'll play whoever does best. So I can see it and I think that the the. Patriots have a good chance as anybody just because they are still in the AFC east and you know they got the jets and the bills and that's what we've been talking about a lot is who can beat them in their division and you know what do you think rob? Do you think the jets or the bills could possibly beat them I mean we we don't think so. I don't see. I don't see either the jets or the dolphins the bills maybe feel a game from you know maybe they're right there at the end of the season I think the bills are the other team in the AFC that can make any his with the with the Patriots. It's one of the Patriots were to make. Level you know it it's going up against whole read again with the chiefs. Sore. If the steelers are right on against the Ravens, that's when things will get a little crazier for the Patriots it's going to be more. So a playoff scenario I just don't Chris is being a five hundred team in my opinion. Look. Let's holiday but locked in for a moment. On. The on the AFC there's a lot of drama obviously Cam Tommy Tampa relocated. The bills wake me up if I'm. Wrong the bill. Where were basically bullying the Patriots twice last year they made it into the play offs Tom and Gronk left. if there's a time to strike when. A vaunted you know glorious opponent like the Patriots have been if there's the time to stretch now, the bills have some of the best young talent. What of our good friends with this show Mike Dave. Oh is help lead the Scott Department for the bills I. Who's your prediction right now in these dropped WHO's GonNa? WHO's GonNa Capture that crowned? With the Patriots I, well, I will stay with the Patriots because. you know look at it this way the Patriots were for more. The Patriots they were humiliated in the playoffs last year when you really. and. That just sends Bella check back into the laboratory like the mad scientist and what is Bella checks tend to do when he gets dumped on he comes back out with A. Vengeance and again I'm not saying. I'm not saying fifteen and one but I'm saying even ten and six where they beat the heck out of each other all this year something like that you know something where they're still a playoff team I can see the Patriots and I will stick with them and I'm fully prepared to be wrong and have the bills. When the division and I will kept my Catholic but I'm not picking against the life you don't lose. You know Rob The winning I worry about the Patriots more than anything else is The coaches they've lost floor is Dante Scar Nekia now is the as less area and from what everybody says best offensive line in the NFL. You lose a lot when you talk about your offense and I mean over the last few years, they've lost a lot of coaches who were fellow checks. Right hand man in way he runs his thing up there where he wants to be able to change on the fly and change in the middle of games and the game plan according to the opponent having teachers go out there and teach people are is really a big thing. How Do you think the coaching staff is GonNa be an affect on Bella check I don't think it's going to be a huge thing for the Patriots I just think that. There are teams that know how to reload look. We've all been many of us unless you're a patriots fan we have all been waiting for that moment where we can take the dirt, throw it on the Patriots scrape. And to Alex Point, it feels like it's there but you gotta prove it to me. Ballot check finds a way to reload all the time get good people whether it's players on the field or off off the field or better cameras lined up so they can treat that's a joke but you know what they find this. To get the job done. Through their credit. Yeah, it is. rob I mean we you kind of you know one time. I got one more question for you as the FBI came out with a A. A projection this week where they they looked at the NFL the next three years came up the power rankings rated the Ravens First Kansas City second. The thing that disturbed me, they rated the jets and giants right behind each other at twenty, nine and thirty. Do you really think the. Teams are in that bad a shape. Do you think they're that far away where three years from today we're still going to be looking at these guys bottomfeeders and looking at the top of the draft to reload or a day that far away in your mind. I don't think. So I don't think jets. Now of the jets giants aren't good I think the giants are pro a bad year I. Think the jets are middling at best The jets have to figure out what Darnold is is he the answer? Is He the big time? quarterback is Danny dimes the answer on the side you know the Danny dimes thing I'm calling him that but in reality is that nickname died almost as soon as it happened so. These two teams have to figure out who's leading the organization. I can't see where either team's GonNa be that bad for that long the giants always find dancers. Through some rough stretches and then they put it back together and then the jets do just enough. Tease their fans that they're gonNA be real. Again, they do Justin up to get you know to an eight or a nine and seven year, and then poof the right back to being three in thirteen. So I do think I think both these teams will not be that bad in years from now. All right eight. Robbie can't thank you enough for your time and we'd love to have you back on again soon you have going on with the minor league where where can people find you something you're doing that Look for you. I'm always busy guys you know. I was supposed to be doing a baseball game tonight at Greenwich High School that got. But I'll be damned very high school on Thursday and back in. Greenwich for the weekend and next week and always on on WGC doing my show double header, which hopefully I can get you to say hello on as well four to five. For Friday and you know we'll get back on with minor league baseball next year and fingers crossed off a high school in the talk about boy I'm having my out there. Yeah. and. We'd love to be on your show and Another thing is you know as we get closer to the football season, we'd love to have you back do a preview show with. Will Get in touch with, you'd be willing to come back and do that. Anytime. You guys want me I'm back say the words. Radical. Advocate Name Your copay. Right, that was rob Adams a great great time with him Last one, forty benefits brought. To The table, you can definitely tell that he knows his stuff and then it that around sports for a long period of time and brought a lot of the show, we can't say enough that we will definitely have him back again You know he brought a lot of the union what we were GonNa talk in the last half hour I just know dabbled on it with him about the jets and giants being rated that low I think. We can do the last portion of the show on that unless we get a phone call three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, one, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, one Joe Alex, and meet waiting for your phone calls. If you want to chime in you guys I, mean you know as a giant fan if us me if bugs me because I understand as we talked when we were doing the the preview of the rookies, their defense is not that good and here you know we have a rookie had goats and but I I see promising the quarterback. I should promise in the half back I see some promise in their and. And I don't see why they can't turn it around y people will just looking at the scene year after year like they're bottom feeders what do you guys think? Yeah. I think that I think they're not as bad as rated I. Think the reason they got rated so low is just the fact that you know the number one thing and and football the quarterback positions. We all know we've discussed it at nauseam and there there's two unproven they're both these guys have shown flashes but you know we're we're high on them. Sometimes you know some people are higher on Danny Jones and others, and you know my thoughts on Darnold I'm not a believer. So you gotta get the quarterback situation figured out, but they will either these guys will do it or they'll dump them and get somebody else, and then the other thing is they gotta get to coach's. Coaching situation we got Know Adam gays and we've heard Alex is thoughts on him and You know we've got the new coach in New York so I if if he can prove that he can do it. He comes from a good system. He's got a good background You know the G. men they go up and down and I I can see them coming back if they can get January Jones right and get the defensive problems fixed I definitely think they have a lot better shot to be further up and have a decent run in the next couple of years more so than I do my jets. Absolutely, I'm going to jump on that. Bandwagon Show I. Mean you bleed blue. Yeah. So About all the. Examinations we've had on on the draft. Young Joe you remember obviously that you remember like. The giants won a few very meaningless games late in the season ending hampered almost handcuffs. Their chances to get. L.. Hyphen rusher. So they battled hold on a big Wiedeman a safe nick. Deep upset. Not Require. So yeah no they have to build up that defence and I was at a couple of I've been to James that the eagles traveled to New York. But it's a lot easier for me to go to them to Philly then. Joe I mean the eagles were like struggling the giants were in control and like you said Joe. Third and fourth quarter man it's a nightmare, the giants. Will give up every third fifteen opportunity to know person team. They've no pass rush their linebackers and stuff sacks. Yeah. But but but need to I mean. The giant at least have judge Alabama David, New, vision if a new leader. They have more pieces than the jets I agree with nate I would definitely rent the giants maybe like. Late, maybe early warning the jets are in the cellar. And what my problem is. I mean we've talked about you know not telling. You, know winning those games you gotTa try and win in the NFL coaches. This tanking stuff I understand it's something that everybody talks about it. It's a Mel. KIPER is a message. ESPN. Isn't come up you know taking a draft choice you gotta try. You GotTa show you can win I mean the even when you're you're losing. For the right reasons shall we say when you're losing to get better draft choice? Those losses still count look what happened to David Dale with with the Knicks I mean they said okay, we're in a tank this year, and then you're going get sign on and you can't. God. Group as if you're a coach, you can't afford to take. The thing about these people these commentator Oh should pay only should stop those losses still trying to get your record and all of a sudden it's like, Hey, we didn't get that draft choice one and now I have a bad record. So where am I going with this or? Strapped choice you want any doesn't get to start those losses they still on your record going. No, you're fine I was just I was agreeing with you. It seems the teams that are you know tanking always thinking of the future they seem to be the teams that are always still thinking about the future. If we look back at the dolphins, there was a lot of talk back in the day of tank INFO to They traded off a lot of their big name talent like Laremy Tunsil and Kenyan Drake Minkah. Fitzpatrick and basically what they did in this draft as we talked about last week was trying to replace those guys. So you know drafting players high and getting good draft picks is great. But if you dump all your your big name guys, you just have to replace them and I feel like you gotTa Try and Win Games they did a good job at the end of the season beating the Patriots like. They did but you gotta play the Games that you're in the you have in front of you and I believe that winning breeds winning, and if you can just win a couple of those games, you know even if you don't get the highest draft pick, you can sign a trustee veteran or you can find somebody in the later rounds and the late around and still come up with a key player for your team. So I with one hundred percent I think tanking is not the way to go. I love the I love the. Miami Dolphins Angle that we're all collectively taken guys. Interesting. So I've heard through. The Grapevine. Just different rumors apparently I mean Ryan for it Austin young coach as we all know he was brought in there with a mandate of sorts saying we're, GONNA panic. We're GONNA take for two of what they want it. They want they want budge board games with its Fitzpatrick. and. Now, he's considered like one of the best young coaches you kinda put his foot down and said, we're not thinking so like as progressed the dolphins turned it on and I agree with you guys it's never it's never beneficial thing I mean the coaches are trying to stay employed. They don't to go to enforce in. in but the bigger thing the players in the game. Players when the Games on Sundays and Mondays and Thursdays. GIVES, it instills in them confidence if they start winning games that Patriots Win Nate, that's massive for the next five years. That Locker Room in Miami they know they can be dealt check. So I mean, yeah I never want WanNa. Support Tanking. That's all. I'm going with what you were saying need about trading off to play these players they did add maybe those players were of the problem maybe they had to get out of that losing atmosphere and Goto place like Texas and get around a bunch of guys there used to winning Jj Watch watch they would start winning again. Sometimes these guys get into as you say that you know the the the culture of losing and it affects them and you can't bring them back. So you have to get rid of them. So maybe that's part of the reason you know Florez, those guys saw it is is the fact that You know tunstall and you know was just never going to turn it around there because he had losses that because of all the losing I, don't know if that's true or not but I don't know what you think. No I agree I mean I think that there was they didn't think they were going to be able to sign him to the long-term deal. I I know we talked about on this show a couple of weeks ago. You know the Houston's where able to reward Laremy Tunsil with the highest offensive lineman contract in the NFL right now and I don't think the bengals or excuse me the dolphins were prepared to do that. So you know there was reasons and and sometimes, and change of scenery is the best thing that could happen to some of these guys but you know it's Just. My point was if you get rid of a bunch of guys, the first thing you've got to do is replace them before you can take that next step up, and that's you know one thing we've talked about on the show is that the the dolphins to overtake the Patriots to overtake the bills and Win The AFC east they've got to get to that next level. So they got to replace those guys one and then to they've got to get those next level players that can get them over the Hump and get them to back to being a competing team for the AFC crown. You. Know we got about ten minutes left. So I wanted just cover something through a little bit of curve at you guys something we didn't. We weren't ready to talk about some GONNA throw it out anyway you know, Major League Baseball's coming back and whether they think they're boost talking about coming into the season was used to the Astros we're GONNA take goes say They don't have to worry about. That work out for them. Yeah. No. That was exactly what I was GonNa talk about when we were talking about the cardboard cutouts and I was like you know the biggest thing that bothers me with not having fans is not being able to Razz and yell at the Astros players I mean th this is kind of being overlooked in my opinion the way that they you know the whole scandal and all of the the kinds of the layoff that happened to the pandemic and all of that I think it's Kinda lessen the blow on the Astros and not having fans in the stands is just GonNa. Take away from them be getting yelled at every single game and here in the heat from Chidi Mike they did to steal signals and win the world series. So I think that's huge. Cardboard cutouts can can be there, but they're certainly not going to be able to heckle the astros like they deserve. Well you know what's you know? What's GONNA heckle? The Astros is some guys on ninety eight mile an hour heat at rollerblade on out to invade or Springer. Korea okay. Let's like back. Okay. You need twenty thousand people to watch you if someone has an issue with someone. And they're looking for payback. It's all like, back. Alley. Old School. pitchers are going to be gone for those Stroz. Thing is you gotta worry about that. Remember pay back goes on both sides of the of the of the diamond. You hate to lose one year guys we've done if they start throwing at each other I mean it was one thing about this whole shooting thing. I still say was more widespread than anybody's talking about is supposedly about the memo about the Yankees are supposed to be. For with the way to know when you know what really you know defcon four of the other teams wanting more blood. General Manager to manager be fired makes me think there was more going on than meets the eye, but it'd be pretty funny. Now people just start banging garbage. Dugouts just to make it just to disraeli. Yeah no it's. Gotten obviously, I never advocates you know don't want anyone. Hitting the head man, you know coach kids like I've seen some of and you were you know out in Ohio man. God injured I never. Like pushed, the envelope of getting people hurt I still think there will be some retribution and like they said I agree it's not gonna be as electric but yeah, I don't think the Astros were Kinda off the hook yet. Definitely see even I on that because we what I saw this weekend, the Yankees unfortunately, it looks like they're going to have Of unless they totally claps I I would I saw them this. We didn't even know the to tie with. So Delfi was nothing to write home about there. To Go. and. I I'm just afraid that the mets will go the other the other way, and we'll have to listen to the Yankee fans again, all all summer oil at least won't be all summer long. You'll be most of August. Yeah. Well, I I agree with what rob said I think that the you know the delayed start and the pushback it helps the Yankees more than anybody because they've got you know to not Tanaka is GONNA hopefully be ready to go. They had a bunch of other players in Aaron Judge and Jan Carlos Stanton both coming back from injuries you've got Luis Severino who's coming back from Tommy John who knows whether he'll be able to make an impact or not, but just getting those other guys back and having them in the lineup and hopefully looking like they're going to be healthy it just has to help the bronx bombers and once again make them the favourite you know coming out of the Al.. One. Last subject before we were, we got about nine minutes left no preseason football. What's thoughts on that? Yeah, I mean I I heard that today and I know that was a big thing that the players union was pushing for and I understand all the talk about you know making first player safety and and all that. But as I talked about a week ago, it just it really hurts the young guys and it hurts the rookies. It hurts the guys that are trying to make the roster and having no preseason games. It just benefits those teams that you know were. Last year and have a lot of players coming back. These coaches who we've talked about on the show quite a bit that are brand new, and that's still have a lot of them met their teams yet well, now they've gotten no dress rehearsal. They've got no way to go out and figure out who that third fourth receiver is figure out who the special teams players. Are GonNA. Be You know is it? Is it something that's good for safety? Yeah probably. But you know I thought that it might be a good idea to go ahead and play a couple of preseason games just to get the just to get the itinerary set and to give these guys idea of what it's GonNa be like playing football games with the pandemic so. I'm not sure I agree with totally getting rid of the preseason games like Kinda hoped they might be able to negotiate maybe one since you know the players union was really pushing for zero the owners wanted to play too because of the free money aspect of it. But I was Kinda hoping they would at least one so that they could have a dress rehearsal. And and get some of these young guys out there running around. Now it's just going to be those free agent signings are going to be that much more important because I really feel like a lot of these teams are going to steer towards the veteran players and just because I haven't not going to get a chance to see these guys go out there and play. Yeah. Now, Knoxville up my brother I. Totally agree you know the. So important man just to get out there and just mess with the let the closest. Coaches know what people what people bringing the able but. You know there's nothing like a criminal. There's nothing like a preseason. You don't WanNa go in there. You know half lock. Borough week one. So yeah, it's trouble bomb. If the really important issue and it could be very interesting to see out all plays out. Well Good A. Prime example where it's going to create. kind of confusing is in Chicago you're GONNA have to stick with your bisky because you don't know what full is going to be like in that offense if I. You know what I mean on the skilled is on them or I'll I'll never stick, with Mississippi State Nick and there's no and I know many eagles? Guy I. Is. Yeah he's not my quarterback. But see if they had a couple of preseason games, they could you know play trubisky in the first quarter and play foles in the second or rotate amount and kind of get a really good idea of WHO's going GonNa give them the best chance to win, and now they're just going to have to base it on practice and we all know that you can play against your scout team as much as you want. But until you see the real bullets flying of an NFL, you know posing team first team defense. It's it's GonNa be difficult to judge and that's a great point Joe in. That the the quarterback competitions and the ones that exist do you know a lot of these rookies are probably GonNa have to sit and wait in favor of the veterans in that aspect too just because they're gonNA, feel more comfortable with the guys that have been out there before with with no preseason to speak of, and they're not even going to be able to do You know these two team practices that they've done in the past where they brought in another team and let the one bang on each other that's not going to be allowed either so it just it just sets everybody back that much farther. A lot of teams across the NFL ordinance came over window. you might have a you know like Some some of those guys have committed some of those guys are sitting out I mean, at least the bubble, the NFL going be a very interesting to survey Laughing on forbid. He's show me. is still his feeling like seem honest I go with Nick foles yeah I'll give them. I mean. You could be right. Thing is that you're busy knows knows the dynamics of that offense were full dozen yet? You don't have any TA's or anything else to speak of I. Mean I was real sack. Bulls is going to the gym. So. and He's played in three different offenses in three different years and having to learn another one via zoom meeting isn't giving him the edge. So I really think they'll probably start off with trubisky as much as I don't want to see it I feel like that that you're right. Joe. I. Think they'll probably run him out there at least to begin the season and then at the first sign of falter they're gonNa pray the Saint Nick and Save Them just like he did your eagles out. Guys got yeah. You got the on point Know overall if I had to look ahead and like a month into the season, you know they're gonNA play it today they have a great event. They have an awesome home crowd i. YEAH THEY WANNA get out some x three one, and then not if the probably when Mitch Trubisky struggles, then they're going to nick. So Knicks gotTA learn the offense. That's a good point. All right guys we are down again and other good show tonight rob was great. It's good stuff going on on Thursday night, we are going to unveil the top twenty. NCAA wide receivers of all. We had a lot of fun with the defenders. We're going to do the we're doing that we are trying to. Set up a guest doing toge- as of yet I got a couple of people in work.

Hour 1: AD Drama

"The time. They get up with Tom Brady. Why are they tugging on the Cape of coat there is trash being talked is having. None of it. You'll hear it all in fifteen minutes. Plus zayante does it again. Putting up numbers you have to see believe in doing it in typically, spectacular fashion. The highlights our life than ten minutes away and the biggest NBA trade in half a century taking pig step towards religion live with the very latest on the Lakers and anybody else in the Anthony Davis sweepstakes. It's time to get up. Right now. We welcome you to our studios in New York City and delighted with a jail and Laura RJ, Dan, Orlovsky and especial guest alshon Jeffery is in our studio. He's going to be here. All morning long talking football as we counted down to the Super Bowl. He's a D threat. That goes across the middle. Just like me. Exactly, right. But let us start with the, you know, there's the the resistible force in the movable object. What we got at least half of that what Steph curry and the warriors in action last night, the markets cousins and company taking on the warriors up three. And here goes step. He would have quite a first-half last night. Guys. I want to just to keep an eye on tooth watch. That as you keeps it a lie. He finds a way to get to the ball, and Jalen would say back to Lulu Indiana plant with big goal of people when they were not down three final awesome. I watched that on the baseline this. What's on the bench? This is where the team is having too much fun for their own good. Steve Kerr, stuff's crazy. I don't know what that was literally fell rolled around like cockroach on his back during the middle radio. All right now, it's fifty four thirty four RJ Cuban on the with this guy. How you gonna stop Steph when he's making this? It's not a very fun place to be like even on the court when he's doing that and shimmying how about this one. How about this one of the end of the first three to one Bank six of eight from three twenty six points at halftime. Fourth quarter warriors are up Twenty-two and jailing talked about the marketplace of bully ball have that. Nah, absolutely. Give points in paint. We can do it off the pants to do it. All. With the other team foul trouble and seeing right there and he had twenty two point six points. Four says nice moment after the game Steph curry a young fan. A pair of shoes he had holographed all in all easy for Golden State. True. Just I really to finish it. Tune with every plying everybody contributing we're gonna group placement. Coaches with fifty. Quitting that kinda guess sprees on you. From also. Some thirty games playing playoff playoff time. Ramblers starting. I mean, they're hot the warriors became the third team in history to score at least one hundred and ten points in every game during a ten game road winning streak the previous to to do it at some pretty famous players, the seventy two Lakers and the sixty one Celtics both of them won the championship. We're going to get back to Golden State in a minute. But after the biggest story in the NBA has now been juiced over twenty four hours since we learned that Anthony Davis agent is told the pelicans he will not sign an extension and he's requested a trait. It certainly sent every general manager scrambling to see what kind of deal they could make as to the response in New Orleans. He's their coach Alvin gentry. I think everybody understands that, you know, spotted a business, and you know, us he's still on the contract with us. Like, I said when you get healthy apply, Anthony professional, and he's always this professional with us, and and even more so he's been friends, and and like brother, so whatever decision he makes can't be upset with him. I know this business, but he's doing best. All right. So here's an official statement from the does not usually get to this, folks. This the pelicans released state being after day relatives specific talks of trade. We will do this on our time line one that makes sense for our team and will not be dictated by those outside our organization. We have also requested the league to strictly enforce the tampering rules associated with this transaction so figures to potentially get ugly here. Let's bring in the man who broke the news yesterday are NBA insider Adrian ward Ascii, whoa, JR. So just twenty four hours ago. You report story. What can you bring us right now? What is the very latest greenie. The pelicans mindset headed into at least the trade deadline next Thursday is that they've got to be overwhelmed by an offer to do a trade for Anthony Davis before February seventh otherwise they will take this into the spring. They will finish the season with Anthony Davis. And then, you know, they'll continue to solicit offers, you know, right into the draft and maybe up to July one. Your friend and mine was Brian win came on the show at the very end yesterday. And got me all excited by bringing the Knicks into the conversation. Just the mention of the word New York Knicks. Anthony Davis got me interested, which leads to the question. Are there any other places? You could see Anthony Davis being willing to resign if he were dealt there. Besides the Lakers. You know, sometimes players will have an opinion about a potential place that it changes once they get there. You know that happened with Paul George with Oklahoma City when he was traded there and decided not to go onto LA free agency. So there are teams measuring the idea of Anthony Davis as a rental, and certainly New York is for flare of his stature that kind of market that kind of stage, you know, that certainly has an appeal, but it's very much a rebuilding Team New York probably doesn't have the assets to deal for Anthony Davis. I think maybe the one pathway for the Knicks would be if they got the number one overall pick and the idea of Zion Williamson to rebuild around appeal to the pelicans. But short of that, I don't think Kristaps Porzingis make sense a trade because I'm not sure New Orleans to be able to resign him. One more thing I'd like to ask. And that is what is the reaction? You're hearing around the league from small market teams, the grumbling has begun and on one level. I certainly understand. What are you hearing? I think the frustration. Among small market teams. And this has been ongoing for really a couple years. Now is the idea that players who have multiple years left on their contracts. Are you know are looking to get out of their situations? There's a feeling that bigger markets recruiting these players tampering. Well ahead of free agency. And and now, it's you know, it used to be maybe in the final year of your deal. Now, it's two years with two years left. When is it going to be three years left on a deal? That's the frustration of smaller market teams right now. All right. Adrian origin. Ask you the very latest. We'll check in with you again, certainly as this thing continues to develop he's mentioning there. The small market teams are Jane why they're upset by this from your perspective. Do they have the right to be as upset as some seem to be? They can't be upset. But at the end of the day you had Anthony Davis. Let's just look at not market not big market. Let's look at what you had you had Anthony Davis for seven years right last year with their best team that they put together they had Rondo they had. Boogie cousins. And you made a decision over. We have Anthony Davis for two more years. Let's see if we can retool this you let Rondo go. You don't resign obviously for reasons? But ultimately all of those signings would have been to keep Anthony Davis happy he's putting career number along. And he realized that he's out there by himself. So you didn't make that sacrifice to get talent around the key it so now he's upset and he wants to go. There's nothing to do with smaller big market and this terrific players playing small markets look at the Greek free Russell and Paul George Damian Lillard. So I agree with RJ at some point as an organization you have to find find a way to cater to your best player and make him feel comfortable. I think the bucks did that with the Greek freak changing their coach changing their environment. I think he'll be there for a long time. So it'd be interesting to see how this plays out. You know, something else that I think is interesting here, if you're the Lakers and your Magic Johnson you now at nine days and counting that you have this window is there any? Sern about trading away. All of your good young players. You've been developing coups MMA ball, all of these guys Brandon Ingram are you at all concerned about trading them away right now for Anthony Davis. No the holy concern. Like how many of them you can you can give to get Anthony Davis. And your goal really is to the -veloping guys that hopefully, they could be trade bait are that you could either you play them and they develop as as talent or you develop them, and then all of a sudden opportunity like this. Why is this the moment they have to do it? Well, because they lost out on Paul, George, right Kawai. Leonard is starting to talk about like going other places, not LA. You have LeBron James and you are in a win now mode and win. Now, there's no more development already put it shifts in the middle of table when lead Julius Randle offer nothing that let everybody know that they were going to open up to Mack's bought. So everybody knew that that was the game. Once you sign LeBron James now they're going for. So you will give up those young players as assets because that's why you developed develop. Them to put you in position to go. Get an all NBA player. Yeah. I think it's going to be interesting to see if there truly is an overwhelming offer from the Lakers. And if the pelicans don't just wait for the Celtics. Okay. Tha college basketball we go where Zion Williams continues to put on a show as Duke they're taking on Notre Dame. And we're going to start this thing in the first half. It was ugly early trade Jones back in action glassy him healthy. He knocks down the corner three Duke there. And then the next possession watched. Jalen the ball around the perimeter perfectly Luth performing optimum performance because usually one or two guys into tickets are already aggressors. They move the ball like that reddish later Duke up by four this isn't much later charge as I get to her. His agility in his quickness. Lettuce with all the other things that people don't talk about which makes them impressive there by sixteen now. RJ Barrett able to drill the three and they're up by nineteen. They now lead thirty to twenty three's ion has it up top holes up his along free pointer is so versatile to the second. Have we go Duke leads fifty three to thirty four. And looking this block my words, don't so high. You can't even control your landing different type of athlete that we haven't seen very many times in the history of the game day Dave village called the unicorn that's on putting it in his own layup plus the foul strong play by him. And then watch this do by twenty one. John Mooney gets another huge block resign. William Johnson fast. It's like it's quick nece is second second flits. It's impressive. They win it. Eighty three to sixty one big wins finishing twenty six points, nine rebounds. No do. Freshmen have scored more points in their first one games and Barrett and Williamson who ring first and second respectively prior to Monday there had only been to do players under coach four in double figures twenty consecutive games to begin their career that Sony dock ends and Jalil Okeafor, Richard Jefferson. You watch him play. And what is the first that enters your mind? What is he doing in college? What is he doing in college right now? Why is he not preparing preparing himself? Why is he not on a roster right now getting better there was that conversation with Luca Danni and Kevin Durant? And he was basically saying look Don wasn't hasn't been in college. He was just training and working to get better and improve the skills, and I think that's zyppah could be doing talked about this for years unfair to American born players that graduate from high school in theory. They can't enter the draft. But international prospects are allowed to Luca Danni has been a pro for a handful of years to your point is I wanted to go. To the Lee he should have the opportunity that's gonna come in a couple of years it it's almost like we've run out of ways to describe him. So these are the thoughts that we wind up having and I see where you guys are coming from his development, obviously important, but if you talk design, and if you think about how he'll look back on this time in his life at a later time. He will look back on this as one of his fondest times, he loves being Duke. He's smiling. He's laughing. He's having the time of his life. He's been so much fun for them. But also, he's having fun himself. And he loves his guys to me that is still important in all of this for him to have that that experience for himself the university of Michigan just a little bit. University of Arizona. I was there for three years. How long were you there three? Or did you have a good time? As the great time. And I'm not discounting his experience is fun. He should be enjoying this more. When I'm saying, though, is that there are players that get better opportunities to improve their game improve their skills in American born players aren't afforded that they're magnet to go to college, which is unfair is not a level playing field. If you're trying to judge talent from Europe to here in America. How about this talking about him being the number one pick, right? That means he's going to a bad team, which means coach K is likely betted whoever's going to be coaching him the next few years. So getting that experience is going to be good for his career. Yeah. Correct. That the three guys will be coaching him over the next three. You will have much more on all of this basketball as we go. But we are delighted to have a very special guest in studio this morning on get year ago. He was getting set to play in the biggest game in the world. He was a second round pick by the baiters, eight twenty twelve spent five years in Chicago and his final four years there. He was ninth in the league in receiving yards. Schon Jeffrey then signed a one year deal with the eagles in two thousand seventeen nine touchdowns in the regular season. Three more in the playoffs, including the big one in a Super Bowl win, then resigned. Philly this off season despite having all season shoulder surgery, alshon Jeffery the most efficient year of his career catching a career high. Seventy one percent of his targets, and we are delighted along with Dan Orlovsky studio talking football this morning from the Philadelphia Eagles to welcome Al sham. Jeffrey too. Be here Riddick to have you here. And we're about to get into all of media day stuff here. And some of the trash talking that was assigned to Nicole Roby Coleman about Tom Brady just wonder a year ago at this time when you guys are getting sent to go to the Super Bowl how much time did your team your coaching staff and other spend on how you're going to handle the media what you're going to say what you're not going to say how much of an emphasis was that. I don't think he spent some time talking about it because all throughout the whole play offs and the whole year. We talk about this column another team pretty well. Just add to the fire. So the fact that someone might say something about Tom Brady that might make him mad could potentially be big. He'll Hugh last night opening night for fifty three which is not what they call media day, usually players and coaches spending trying to avoid creating bulletin board materials and Al says 'specially against Bill Belichick and company, but one ram has taken sort of a different tack this week in an interview with. Each report, Nicole Moby calm, and the man who laid the unflagging hit this knocked the saints out of the Super Bowl at the following thoughts on Tom Brady age is definitely taken a toll for him to still be doing it. That's a great compliment for him. But I think he's definitely not the same quarterback. He was this dates back to grow Coleman was in buffalo and played him a lot. They were both asked about the quote last night. Here's what they said. Well, I think everybody just made a big deal out of the situation. You know, Tom Brady is a great quarterback. I'm trying to say nothing bad about him respecting them as as the goat. He is he is legend. And I think we're just got misconstrue and took it out of context. Two. Rian sitting the. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know much sad. Sometimes a saying nothing volumes, Dan or live your thoughts on them, tugging on the goats Cape. First of all, right. So I don't really find it to be like tugging on the goats Cape. Like, this is a Rams team. That's trying to knock off the giant and movable force like alshon. You guys did last year. And a big part of it is you have to go in and think of think of them as your counterparts like you can't go in and go, man. This is the patriots. We've got no shot to beat them. So part of that is Nicole Roby Cullman like believing listen, he's great. But he's not what he used to be. He's not the unbeatable quarterback that he used to be. And the second thing is like when we talk about Brady and okays either go that's clearly no longer conversation. But he's not gonna take these comments and use them as motivation on third and seven in the Super Bowl like early on in your career when you're younger this stuff matters to you get older, and you become one of the greatest football pairs of all time, you do that by paying. Attention to what other people say about you you do 'cause you're internally motivated. And that's why Tom Brady's great. Why were you not at the beginning of that? When he was saying that you have to go out there believing you could beat them you seem to be nodding as he was what what were you thinking? I mean, that's what we did. I should just agree with him like aerobics. I don't think he's this a spec home. But he's also his team confidence. Like, we can go out there and do this. You got to believe they put on pets just like us. So that's how we felt less. That's how believe. Take it into toll. He's definitely not the same quarterback. He was expecting him. I'm not saying those coming took it a little too far at the same time. As Tom said, he he he feels that we see on Sunday that was his reaction. Have you ever had something that somebody said motivate you can you look back on a time when you're like. Oh, yeah. That actually factored into my game. Is kind of hard because I always going into the game. I feel like wish one says about it. I'm out. My outcoming team is the beat them never. And you know, this like when you're an athlete that doesn't get you up at five AM when after you're like eighteen nineteen twenty maybe it does. But when you're twenty five twenty six twenty seven you're the dog days that doesn't get you up at five AM to work out that doesn't help you study longer like you have to be internally motivated to become one of the elites like play the NFL and being I remember lane lane Johnson few guys last year going into the game going, listen, it doesn't have to be the patriot way. Which was true. Tom Brady is not what he was. He still great. He's still one of the great quarterbacks in our league is not what it used to be. And that's not a not on him. It's the truth outshine last year against your TV for five hundred yards and his team didn't punt do you think? He's not what it used to be. I give Tom Brady still like you said, I was a wash them like you gotta give them all respect and got Hass off. Would you gotta believe you have to go to go beat the greats? You have to convince yourself mentally. We can go do the other thing I'll say to you is you've been calling in the Michael Jordan ah football. Michael Jordan would take any perceived slight and turn it into fuel. And I believe Brady does that as well. What manner on third and seven in this game? Probably not. But we'll it matter in March when he's got to be working outta getting his body back to play another season. And he remembers. Yeah. Who is that kid who said I'm not a quarterback? I used to be his face when he answered the question if he had seen what Nicole Roby Coleman him said. I thought that told at all you can certainly see like there was a little bit of poking these. Okay. I'm not saying he doesn't keep track of it. But I don't believe it's gonna have an impact on Sunday night. Brady's gonna play great, no matter. What guys he's the greatest football player we've ever seen? All right. We got Sean Jeffrey here all morning long. We have a lot more to get to the Super Bowl. Including I can tell you what certainly one thing you should be expecting SuperBowl fifty three that is absolutely great news about this game, regardless of which team. You are rooting for. And I will tell it to you coming up next plus much more on the biggest NBA trade in half a century taking steps towards fruition. One of the warriors. Sounds concern. You'll hear what was said as we continue this get on ESPN. Get is brought to you by delicious, refreshing, Pepsi. All right. So history cannot tell us if it will be the patriots the Rams who win the Super Bowl on Sunday. But history does of a pretty strong opinion on whether or not the game is going to be close. Because when the patriots are in it, it always is. And when they aren't it almost always isn't consider this the eight Brady Bill Super Bowls have all been one score games with an average margin of four points. The other forty four Super Bowls average margin has been almost sixteen in seven of the eight Brady Bill games. The game winning score came in the final two and a half minutes or overtime seven out of eight. It's only happened in five of the other forty four all time. And finally there have been nine fourth quarter lead changes in these eight patriot games. Only ten in the other forty four teams impossible. But it's true. And wait. There's more Tom Brady has led a game winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime in all five of his Super Bowl wins. He has six touchdowns and no interceptions. When trailing in the fourth quarter and his personal statistics on the final drives of his five. Super Bowl wins are twenty two of twenty seven for two hundred fifteen yards and a touchdown. So again, I cannot tell you who is going to win the Super Bowl on Sunday. But history does say two things are just about for certain won the game is going to be close. And to Tom Brady is going to be phenomenal for a little more perspective on all of this. I wanna bring Damien Woody and Dan Orlovsky into the conversation because d what you were with us on Friday morning. And you told us you think this will not be another one of these close patriot Super Bowls. Why you know? Greeny a couple of things one both of these teams of running the football. You know, very, well, they're both stopping to run very well. But I think the difference is with the patriots when you look at their defense. They're experienced comes on the back in the best part of what the best part of that team outside of Tom Brady is secondary. And I look at what the Rams lied to do will which is play action pass off the run. I think they're going to have difficulty against as patriots secondary which likes to disguise and has a lot of veteran presence back on on the back end. I think they'll be able to to stop the Rams net. Play action pass. We'll see Jerry Gulf can could be they could be that gunslinger because you know, patient's going to try to take away to things that the Rams like do will. That's the question. I have for the Rams when the patients ultimately take things that they like to do will can Jerry Gulf elevated team and put the team on his back reading damn, well, it's very interesting that you bring up those points. First of all when you talk about like art New England's going to take away. What the Rams can do. Well, the only team in the NFL top five in both the run in the past this year. So what is New England take away. Like, okay, we're going to stop the run. We know that's going to make them more vulnerable to the past understand that they're secondary's been good this year. But the weakest part of their defense when it comes to pass pass coverage is in the play action game the greatest strength of the Rams when it comes to their pass offense is the play action game in over this. This kind of matchup reminds me a lot of Atlanta two years ago. Philly last year New England better have five or six guys. Deep to match up with all the weapons that LA has at some point Vinoy Hightower is going to be matched up in men and men coverage girly some point Chung is going to be on Gerald Everett who I believe is going to win those matchups. So it's like, I get your point because of the narratives of the patriots of the past. But the call it a blowout is a little bit outlandish my pin. Just because there's too many things that the Rams do well for Belgium to go. We're going to stop that. Listen, Dan, I hear you. But again, I think the Petra the patriots one area that you look at on their defense where they're pretty were. They're pretty stacked up is is in the bag end. They can bring bring out multiple guys as far as safety is concerned run. Multiple looks on the back end. So the Rams I listen to pages to me will stop the run make Jerry goal. Put the game in Jerry gulps hand. I think that's going to be the difference with with Bill Belichick scheming defense confusing, Jerry Gulf. I think that's going to be the key. Let me hold you there for a second. What are we can talk about? Certainly we've got three more days to talk about this game. But there's another thing I want to get to in here. And you might have some interesting insight, and it is into the relationship between Brady and Bella check what the two of them have accomplished is almost unfathomable. They are the most successful coach star combination in the history of American sports. They've been ridiculously good together. They want to hundred and thirty six games together. No other tandem in the Super Bowl era is within a hundred. Wind, but there's been a lot of questions about their relationship over the last year and a half. It was Brady talking about that last night. I think it's been pretty consistent over the years. I mean, I don't think we've changed much think. I think there's. You know, we have a great understanding one another, and you know, I certainly couldn't be the head coach of the team. And you know, he couldn't play quarterback. And you know, it's just we do our jobs the best. We don't how. And I think I know he has a lot of confidence in me. Obviously, I have all the confidence in the world and him, and it's been a great relationship for me. And you know, he's taught me so much about leadership. How to be a leader for the team? And he's been so consistent his goals winning. And that's what mine is. Really interesting. What you were there at the very beginning of their team putting them together. And most of the friction seems to have at least been reported to come in recent years. What is your perspective from where you sit now in the relationship. The two of them have well thing is is professional. Tom Brady and Bill is not going out to dinner or anything like that. They understand their roles. Bill is there to you know, put the best product out there on the field, and Tom is going to execute the macho from coach Bill Chet when I first went out, you know, when I was in New England, Tom Brady was a guy who was, you know, six round pick who was start out fourth on the depth chart, and then what makes them special is that that it that determined drive that he has not only just a chip, but the dry just be the best and he methodically worked his way up the depth chart but Bill teaching him the game football. The game of football is all about situations in executing during those times. And Tom does not been another quarterback as good as Tom Brady, execute certain situations when everything is on the line. And that's what makes them great. Yeah. That relationship has been interesting that where the questions as to whether or not valid chick was ready to move on a year and a half ago with Jimmy Garoppolo. Now here they are back in the Super Bowl for the ninth time in eighteen years. He would thank you. We'll check in with you again. As the week goes on more. How about the biggest story in sports? Let's get back to it. It's been just over twenty four hours that we learned that Anthony Davis agent. Rich Paul has told the pelicans he will not sign an extension and requested a trade of certainly had everybody in the NBA talking about what Amanda Davis trade could mean to the league. So for more on this. Let's bring in Nick for Dell who covers the warriors for SPN and joins us now in Nick how the warriors react to the news that Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans. Laura, I asked Kevin Durant. If it was a topic of conversation within the locker room, and he said it was while it's something certainly that'll be going on the next few weeks. It's not something that they're concerned about much at all. President shutdown basketball post talk about it. We all as players. Exactly what they wanna do is short on time. So why not? Lorde? The key for the warriors. Is they know how good they are. So wherever Davis mainland good for him. They know what they need to do to win. Again. They what they need to do to win. And they keep doing that. They've won eleven straight. What is working? So well, what's the sense around the team about how? Well, they're playing right now. Everything. Team. They got boogie cousins back. They know that he provides them a weapon they've never had before down low on the blocks, he can shoot it. He's fit in well in the locker room and on the floor think quicker than they could have expected. But here's the difference between the warriors and anybody else they know if they play at their best at their peak. They're going to beat everyone in their pass along as they stay healthy. There's no concern from the outside about any other team. They know if they play the way we're used to seeing them play offense defensively getting up and down the floor getting Steph curry going like he has been less you games. There is no competition in their mind. They're not playing against the other team. They're playing against themselves every night, and as we've seen the last couple of weeks. They're doing a pretty good job of it. All right. Thanks so much Nick for deller ESPN warriors. Reporter he's talking about the confidence greeny, and and this point the warriors can look at themselves and say, we're pretty good at this point. And I've had this fighting since the day. Just a wrap when you watch them you watch boogie getting comfortable in there. It is a raft with the war. Okay. I'm gonna play devil's advocate here, you let me clear my throat and say this properly is not a foregone conclusion that goes they were just going to run through the Western Conference playoffs. It is not I'm going to tell you what picking roll defense each team has strengths and weaknesses, and when they play against Houston who bought away basically have to all star players, James hartness, EP. When they play against Oklahoma Russell and Paul George, you know, what they're going to be doing, but in boogieing picket role every time. And so that's how you're going to try to come that. The war is being able to shoot the basketball the way they can't defensively. The Oklahoma City thunder in particular have great length. We just said yesterday how many shots did they block the Greek freak? Yeah. Seven okay on him alone. Yeah. Okay. So they have the God download in atoms that can be an anchor to make Draymond and boogie work is will they have multiple people. Switch on a perimeter. I'm not picking one of those team to beat the warriors. And I'm telling the world right now when they play those two teams going to be along CR J where you talk some sense into him. Please. I can't believe what he just said. It's. I I've been on the court against them when they didn't have Kevin Durant. And it was not fun. I've been on the court when they had Kevin Durant. And it was definitely not. And now they've added boogie cousins to that makes. And it is it just you see you see kind of the trickle down effect where guys like I gotta get outta here. Right. Like, I gotta go someplace else, they Anthony, David. We're players need the team up because they have five all stars on their team. They have five potential all India guys on their team. There's just nothing that you can do about it. Is there a team in the Western Conference that? Yeah. Yeah. The eight Lakers, right? Two years ago. Now right now. No, maybe maybe the two thousand and one Lakers. How about the two thousand and nineteen Boston Celtics. We all watch the game on Saturday night. It might have been the best game of the NBA season. I tweeted immediately I'll sign up for seven of these in June. If we can get it is Boston a team that could make Golden State's sweat in seven games because they see when you play against a words, you gotta make Steph work, though, I picked teams all have guards that's going to make him work. So the Boston Celtics have that clearly would career they have multiple young players on the wane that could make shos Tatum Brown get locked down defensively, but Boston has to worry about their own conference. Last time, I checked aren't they fifth in their own conference? So they if they don't get like three, they're not getting out of the east, Geno. I agree. There are better teams. Right. Oklahoma City after a really good team. But there are better teams in the Eastern Conference to Ron. Oh, Philly the where they have tons of weapons and they have debt to go against the word. But only one of them's gonna get there. Right. The only team that's in the Western Conference that could really compete if they plant their highest level is probably Houston. But they're still James harden having ridiculous season. But you're still waiting for that team to come together. Everybody sleeping. Okay. C? I sleep until you show me. They gotta show me ready. Go to show me they lost in the first round to a rookie led team in the Utah Jazz last year. Don't tell me that they can compete and go and beat the best team. Maybe a simple in the history of game when they've lost in the first round the last two years to a rookie led team in Donovan Mitchell. He's a bad boy. But just still don't tell me that the dynamics of their team have shifted not that much the guy that was playing an Austar game. And like their best player last year was rough not as Paul George. I like that dynamic. We'll keep talking. Well, let's get back to the best player in the world. Really? And that's. This is the guy who wants to talk about. And we've got a retreat do Kyle idea, which is this an excuse to show you more great Zion moments from their game last night against Notre Dame. And just look at the full repertoire, I two hundred eighty five pound young men with that spin Riddick footwork power finish at the now, we can do this. Because if he can do this consistently Christmas. Consistently Cajun every now do this though he can do that do that all day long Zion last night twenty six points nine boards. Four blocks do easily over Notre Dame. Jay Williams was watching. They will your thoughts. Duke Stevens was superb once again this past evening. We think about holding TJ Gibbs John Mooney to eight of thirty from the fill. Those are two of Notre Dame's best players. Their offense was spectacular. That three point shot is always been a question for Duke three point shooting, which versus zone was around twenty two percent from the year. We'll Duke shot fifty plus percent from three point line shooting. Fifty percent from the field fifty plus for simple three point line. And zion. Williams RJ are allowed to catch the ball into the gaps anybody's going to beat this year to shooting the ball that. Well, Jay world is right. When do shoots they're impossible to be jailing. Why are you has here that they like people know about my history would do our four against. Still people portray me as like some sort of do hater terrific amount of respect for them. And for coach K, but I'm gonna tell you got something as long as to players scoring fifty percent of their point. They will not win the championship. We will see our next Super Tuesday devil tonight to rivalry games. Kansas, Texas, and then Kentucky vandy all of it is live on the ESPN app. So you can watch from anywhere. We'll get back to that. Meanwhile, Jalen coming up is going to tell you exactly why Anthony Davis once out of New Orleans has five reasons they're coming up at the top of the next hour with us nine eastern. Jalen, we'll give you the five reasons. Eighty one out of New Orleans and then the man Tom Brady calls his hero. Tom Brady senior will join us live in our number to get up on ESPN. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside.

Back here on get up. Let's get you caught up on NBA action from last night, and you go yoke it and the nuggets taking on the grizzlies Denver trill by twenty five six minutes and thirty nine remaining in the third Richard Jefferson. They started to make a comeback in the fourth quarter vulgar movement for we'll hit the three. No, it's good to have. We'll back the Dipper nuggets are the most underrated team, and they're number two in the Western Conference inmate are still just fighting for FC possessed relief Beasley with three they're down. Only by one. Now about fifty seconds to go making this comeback down by one and Barbara another three Martin is plus for them last year. Glad that they re signed brings an energy swagger to their teams after a Memphis Denver down one yoke. It's tough way in the paint. The nuggets are ninety three to ninety two and then with nine seconds ago grizzlies down ninety three ninety two Creevy sequence right here. Just look in. This is the way basketball goes you make the hardest possible shot and unfortunately. Out of bound by referees foot on the line there for Kyle Anderson yoga finishes with twenty four points, five rebounds, the nuggets complete a crazy comeback and actually did something that no team had this season winning a game. After trailing by twenty five points in the second half entering the day teams were oh in one seventy four in such games. Rex. Let's go to the Celtics and the net course, Celtics without hiree Irving early in the first Marcus smart safes the loose ball. Terry Rozier gets gives it back to Mark for the three look and look Terry Rozier doing a great job of running this team, seven assists, only one turnover Celtics, rehear smart passing. Aaron Baines is hitting threes. It's just going to be a. Celtics up thirty nine thirty seven and another open three there. Here's Brad Stevens said about pains and smart after the game those two guys knocking it down throughout. Mortgage more Aaron base, particularly I really kind of carried you guys for stretches. Those are splash brothers. They got their own flesh others to the forest Celtics one oh, seven ninety four with just four minutes left and smart cuts. The b-actor landed in over the defense there that's been playing well, but that's just too much much Celtics. Celtics win one zero four back to the Super Bowl to it. One of the big storylines of the championship game was whether or not Jared Goff would proved to be the weak link among the four quarterbacks who were the last one standing and all they did was dual drew Brees on the road the Senate team to the Super Bowl. Take a close. Look at some numbers here. One area of enormous improvement for golf under Sean McVeigh has come on competitive throws over the last two seasons. Goth as the third best touchdown interception ratio on tight window throws. According to NFL next gen stats. So you might be thinking you what exactly does that mean? And what does it look like it? How does it factor into this game? So I got a quarterback and the receiver here to break it down show me the most important thing in the game. For the Rams offense is Jared goff's. Accuracy, and tight windows are men, man. I want to circle down here, Gerald effort. They're tied and he's going to have some favourable matchups against sake, these linebackers, and I also wanna point this safety that he's going to rotate down the middle of field when Jerry God sees that. I want to take my shot, and he really is going to have ever running go route. And just watch the ball placement. Daddy has on this throw like this. This is the these type of throws that is not a ton of separation. Those type of throws at he's going to need to make going to be still important for them to beat man covered reacting to that. What were you seeing there? About those. The Super Bowl me. You can't be thinking about too much pressure. About the same type of throws. Yeah. Man coverage and then Robert woods here. So he's going to run a ways to beat man coverage. One of the great things you can run crossing route. He's going to run this crossing row woods at the line of scrimmage is going to win. And you've got to make accurate throws in man-to-man coverage because those defenders are going to be trailing underneath and I'm gonna pointed out right there greeny. Okay. So now, you have a safety driving downhill that guy can undercut it that needs to be placed perfectly by Jared Goff for that ball to be complete. I want show. Everybody said home alshon. Let me bar you big man, you're gonna come over here because we're going to see that. And when we hear about what's open in the NFL. You're the defender green. I know you're lockdown corner. I am Al Shawn's the receiver Jared goff's to put that both here if you're trailing deadball needs to be placed there that is this is open in the NFL. The patriots are gonna make Jerry gothic fifteenth rose this because at the bolts here, we think that's open at home. That's not their the defender is gonna get into here. And so what you're saying is that this is a good demonstration. This is what open means in the National Football League. Right. If you have this kind of space here expecting completion facilities game anxious, and that's an easier cash for you that is contested those guys making the contested catches out. Here is much easier than here. You gotta fight arms. Right. I agree with you like you says, oh here this on the Bubba. Here's you gonna be on a lot of half. I it's gonna be a lot of fight. So you could he's got to be super accurate in man to man coverage. That is the number one thing for that Rams offense, and that's really well done because I don't think that's what most people perceive Jared Goff to be. He's been extremely good into those windows tomorrow on get up a lot more of this type of conversation all-star lineup. We will have rookie sensation saquon Barkley on the show juju Smith Schuster on the Steelers tumultuous season.

Highly Questionable

00:00 sec | 3 years ago

Bristling Brady

"Hello. We've got another highly questionable week for he's rip roaring to go. It came from the proctology. It's a little while ago to fans recognized him there. That's very uncomfortable. What do you like on the show today is no it's not a popular thing to say. But it's kind of Sean Jeffrey folk I live bumpy. Is Tom Brady ride that everyone things the patriot suck he was hissing underdog Tom Brady, I felt like he was talking directly to me pick the chargers to win that game and then to my horror engine, my horror when I realized wait a minute. They're gonna do that seven defensive back thing. Again, do they think the Lamar Jackson Tom Brady is the same kind of quarterback? Listen to Tom Brady. He doesn't have any time for your doubt. You know, everyone thinks we suck. And you know, can't win any games. So we'll see it'll be fun. It's kind of true in retrospect look at the regular season. They had a crazy impressive six game winning streak that included wins over the colts the chiefs and at the bears and the other three opponents that they had they outscored by an average of twenty one points. They've now played five playoff teams. And that offense damn scored thirty seven plus points against those five playoff teams. So say what you will about the other games that they had in those lackluster performances they had a very good regular season. And now getting healthy Tom Brady, supposedly had an MC L problem that he got a little bit healthier going into this playoff game. I'm telling you off it's is going to be there. And if you're looking forward against the chiefs defense that. Yeah. Look good against the colts. I know you don't have that confidence. When Bill check in the patriots go against that defense. They just did it without anything much from gronk. That's what they did to the charges. I thought they were the most balanced team in the league the chargers right up there with the things they had a better record than the patriots this year they were somewhat damaged by having to play Baltimore last year. You know, the greatest patriot advantages. That they usually get to home games and Dhbai, but since turning forty this is a step from the sporting news. And I've been saying that Tom Brady's deep ball flooding indicated that he was on the decline for about four seasons since turning forty in playoff games. He's averaging over three hundred fifty yards game nine touchdowns zero interception in playoff game since he turned forty two. Then you wanted leases to what you say. They shouldn't say more honest. No, I have the chargers winning the Super Bowl. Well, ego slow saw shown Jeffries vol-. This is a guy who last month said I have the best hands in the league. He gets targeted a lot. And he's only had three drops in the last few seasons. But he picked a terrible time to have this one one of the things that has made Nick foles great. Is he throws more to Sean Jeffrey trust him more than Carson Wentz does. But when you watch that play watch it again, it's not just that it went. He was a perfect throw right through his hand. And then I'm not even sure that's the worst indignity. You guys roll that back again, just so you can see what happens to him after he realizes. Oh my God. I just blew the season. He'll so gets totally blown up by people here that man that isn't fair, but look all the other parts of both teams seem to do their job to get them in that position. Right. Nick foles was great early on. Then he turned kind of into a backup quarterback in the second half. The saints weren't great. But that offense put together one ridiculously long drive that shows you that they can do anything. Obviously, Michael Thomas was great. Drew Brees was great vet missed field goal. Set up Nick foles for more foles magic. He had one past as Akers. He had that one roughing the passer penalty. Here we go. I'm going to my safest guy L, Sean, Jeffrey, and it's right through his hands. I know you say one play doesn't cost the entire game. I know you can't put the blame on one particular guy. But when you look back at the foles magical ride, how did it end that guy's hands? Man that's going to be remembered for a long time. I talked to Rodney Harrison on the radio today. This is a lead announcer on Sunday night football. And this is what he actually said you gotta go back to Wentz now. And then I asked him, but what Jeffrey cuts up all and they win. Well, then you stick with foale's stick with both. That's how thin the margins. Can I say something to Jeffrey? Of course, man. I tell you you might look like who, you know. I think Nick foles to win at all. We're going to win that game with about two and a half men, or you know, he was driving. I could see fire he size. You know? I see him releasing that bowl. And all these the you blew it. Nuclear flu thinking to win that game at begin to win the hope walks Super Bowl, you know, what I meant. I saw people, you know, carrying on shoulders full Strang, you know, he was the winning Keno. He just another guy. The show McVeigh pro-peace genius in beating couples with running on defense. Did you guys think that the Cowboys rush defense which has been exceptional all season that the only thing would beat them would be the Rams pounding the ball with Todd Gurley? They've used this season Todd Gurley as a decoy in one game to open up their offense in this one. They decided to go straight at what is supposed to be the Cowboys strength. The thing that totally stopped the saints. I am surprised that they went this route. I'm surprised that they had success going this route. I would have thought it would have taken balance. It might be a genius move by Sean McVeigh, or it could be the tell that their scouting department found in the defensive line of the Cowboys. They said after that game that that tell was correct about ninety percent of the time against the Cowboys. And if you have a bruiser like Todd Gurley any has those tells, of course, you're going to get seven yards per carry. And then if you haven't even bigger bowling ball like C J Anderson coming in after he's going to give you five more yards. A carry it might be McVay genius. Or it might just be. Dallas incompetence either way you have Todd Gurley. You wanna use you get into one of these situations, though, where you have to give the coach in the front office credit for being able to pick up that tell for seeing that the Dallas cowboy line when it was shifting back and forth was giving away its defense. And then you've got to trust that information enough to build a game plan around it this does speak to him having some information sometimes that others don't, and when winning is in the margins in these games, you need a guy who gives you these kinds of advantages. The you see CJ and there's some dominating again, just beef. Fear. That was another great woman for fat guy. Guy. Hey, most thinking of you. I mean, fat guy's dead. Did they shave nation of the goals met? You think that read could change his play of narrow team? Okay. The playoff narrative is such around Andy Reid, even though the four coaches that are remaining meantime, has pointed out are the mount Rushmore that you're looking for right now in this sport, these are four excellent coaches, and yet if I were to tell you who do you trust more on this coming weekend, the coach and the quarterback who haven't won the Super Bowl or the coach and the quarterback who have I think a lot of people are going to ride the patriots, even though the patriots have been really bad on the road this year. However, this is what I would say to you Mahomes does not look rattle bowl. He looks like someone who is very calm. They're throwing the ball sideways throwing the ball submarine ING out there getting Travis Kelsey open on plays when Travis Chelsea's not open. I don't know that anyone can slow Mahomes down. But the team that's coming in. There is the one you fear the most to do it. I would probably tell you that his playoff failures have more to do with QB limitations than it does with his personal failure. And you know, he's never been more confident going into an AFC championship or any playoff game. Then you had with Patrick Mahomes on your side. But that's not the side of the ball. That would make me lack confidence in the chiefs. It's the other side. And again, I know what they did against the colts. And they look fantastic. But are you going to tell me that Bill bell check after putting forty three on that defense during the regular season isn't going to have a better strategy than the colts. But if it's a war with the patriots defense against Patrick Mahomes. I'm still not sure who I'm going to pick. Because again, Patrick Mahomes, put forty in Foxborough earlier this year. This is going to be a great game. I don't know what to have more confidence. Once again is not realizing that the point here is to know what you have to do is say the chargers are gonna win the Super Bowl. And then you come and eat it. We do it again next. Yep. I know what it's going to happen. Mandy chief. They're going to be on fire. They're going. Louis playing great. You know, this going to get down to the fourth quarter, you nice very close game. And all of these other, you know. Last week to dust in here. Jesse me. Jesse me allergies. Okay. Good good talking to you. Bobby excellent analysis. Should the as they Murray? Millions more to play baseball's a fascinating story because I think at any time through the last thirty years everyone would say go play baseball. Take your guaranteed money. Don't get near the violence. But the quarterback position has changed so much in terms of how many rules protect the quarterback safety that you can see that this guy who is great at quarterback might say to himself. I'm better at football is more of a guaranteed than I am at getting baseball. Minor leagues to the major leagues. Having Scott bores as your agent, though, you muddle the situation you make it totally murky and you make the Oakland A's come into a meeting where they're deciding to pay more money to keep you away from football. That's exactly how you do it. If you're an agent, if you do the sort of a worse case best case scenario for Mary. Where's case scenario was who probably Tim Tibo? Right. You go in. You're not that great venue kid go into baseball. But obviously, you would have more recent experience that can go ahead and pick up almost right where you left. Up with that's best case scenario, you're looking at a Russell Wilson type who can play quarterback for fifteen years and be very good. I don't know why you don't look at this and say, hey, he can get back into baseball. When he's twenty five twenty six year old and still have an extended career and not have a life of what if so now, the as are asking him how much money for you to get rid of that dream and just play baseball. I'm surprised honestly that Scott Boras didn't personally pay for the buyout of cliff Kingsbury in Arizona at USC because Clinton's varies already told you he would take column earn number one. And he's got the number one pick. I'm sure Borsa showing those quotes to the Oakland A's in order to get that price tag up. Is reserving telling these out they something that need to hear my father was very happy here. Seeing the heat beat the Celtics, and then the Celtics go to Orlando, and they lose their to and look at the end of this game against Orlando. Based Tyree wanted the ball. And this is the issue when you've got a lot of guys who want the ball. Yeah. I'm guessing he just ignored the play call. And so after the game, here's what Irving has to say, he's still hissing a little bit. It's not easy to be great. So things that you don't and that she done your entire career of being able to you know, kind of coast by certain since certain situations and you gotten away with your youth and stuff like that on a championship ball club. You can't get away with that we come into this season expectations. And it's real everyone from the coaching staff that players it's very much real every single day. So that's new, you know, it's tough. It's hard. You know? So I think that what we're facing. Now is nothing compared to being on on that stage trying to get a gold trophy. You know, if it's hard now, what do you think is going to be like when we're trying to get the finals, that's a sensually. Kyrie Irving calling the rest of his teammates out. He looks around and says what was I supposed to have. I was supposed to have Gordon Hayward. Well, he's probably not going to be himself all year long. And frankly, this offense might not be suited for him. I was supposed to have it better. Jalen brown. He's been in and out of the lineup with some injuries and some sickness, but he's starting to come around. But look at Jason Tatum. Go look at his game. Log and look. How unspectacular we were supposed to see this leap from him this from last year to this year, and we haven't seen that. And when you're talking about a team that's constantly talking about effort, or we're not playing hard enough to beat these other teams who are supposed to rely on for that effort. It's the younger players, Kyrie's I telling them. Hey, get your act together and play like it's game seven of the playoffs every single day or maybe we should consider trading for a veteran. Who knows what it takes to win. Okay. He's right about everything that he said, but Kyrie Irving can walk into any room for the rest of the time. And only if Ray island is one of them can someone have a bigger shop than the one. He's had he's telling you. Hey end of game. Get it over here. He really learned from the Brown. Now, he's blaming every singer. On me. Given what we got caring about Gordon Hayward. That's guy. He comes or, you know. Doc, who these he said, he said fancier, you know, he's a bunk, and no, and I know how come next highly questionable. But he had to go to the best. That happened to me how ever seen. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside. So I thought I'd stay in watch Aramco five minutes into the flick. A tree branch slammed through the window. Where are you hurt? Just gotta scratch on my chest. Your chest of drawers can't help you in a windstorm. But the guy co insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage. Geico to see how a forcible homeowners insurance can be Twitter as well. Looks delicious. Me play the clip est. His cO forty five points against so hopping. Yes. Do. You course, any Blake greenfield. So Steve bowl Merman. Okay. My father, not very impressed. You may have heard whispering unders breath sort of discussing what he scored forty five points against the clippers in his return to LA. Yup. And the owner of the clippers St. bombers over here gonna look him out look out for Blake Griffin Griffin. Yes. Like the turn in roller coaster just sprints off far away is his thing. Blake could said he's been doing this for nine years pre game. But then when he was asked hypothetically, we just ask. Well, if it wasn't pre game. Would you have shaken his hand is response was I don't answer hypothetical questions. I was actually ready to believe Griffin. When he said, hey, I've been doing this for nine years. But when he said, I'm not answering the question, I go back to bomber side on this. I have fallen victim to that. Exact same move. I've been sitting there sidelines. Pre-game waiting to talk to Blake Griffin gathered some notes before a game Pammy takes up. So I do know that that is a real routine. However, look at this little glance, right? Vong everybody in that room knows that Steve bombers right there. You do in a billionaires present, right? Let's look at this again, just so that we could see the Sinai that Blake Griffin gave him before beginning sprint. This is timing is suspicious. Monthly. Maybe he had no choice. Maybe he had to go out that happened. To me how how? You. You gotta go. You gotta go you can still because if you can't you know, what it's going to happen. That's right. Do you question if they should make the park and feel better or his name is parking? But my father thinks it's funny for some reason, call them, pork. He's been laughing at Cody Porky for a week. Now. Let's check in with a brewery, though, that's offering if you think it's so easy. A handful of people the ability to kick a forty three yard field goal for a prize. Let's see what happens here is five people. Make the attempt. You knew this was going to have people. Wearing fleets? Oh. I mean, that's a lot of snow though. I mean, the field wasn't like. Oh, jeez. That's terrible. If I recall you park yet still a little bit. Oh, Mike Golic junior. I feel a little bit better. All of these people had some sort of groin injury afterward, including going off hundred people try to one hundred people missed. How did that lose? Wait a minute. What does that security guard? You should win the game. If you can do that at the end of it. But everyone laugh and happy at the end we slow that down and just looked at it again. And again, can you get your slow that down? So we can isolate that poor security. Guard was arrived the sad place in life where he's protecting the field goal here. You're on. It's important. Order the making a three yard. Do you question if this conduct? We're about to show you a sack and also something that this guy did the celebrate tackling the quarterback. Here we go with the colts number ninety six sitting on that in band. Here it is. And he has happy and it's a great play in its fourth and five and then he does this right of face the referee. I mean. Forty could have just kept walking. He could've gone on his way and steady set their data show and it gets the flag. This was dumb. How bad do you feel about yourself as a referee? When you do that to a guy. Those chiefs are hard to tackle. They're fast often. It's good to have some sensual feeling in his loins for the love of God without taking fifteen yards from him. Guy watches the show. He he's the my move. This is what you do it strike too. One two. One one. Questionable these broadcasts onto clevelander hotel. Busy feel south beach Miami time to play again, doesn't fresh unite gone. See Ono you look like a banana, you tell us what to watch on television tonight. We'll say for intrigue. Banana.

All On Alshon?

"Man. It's like. Patch what he's low thirties out here. I came to work today and a hat very war because it's cold outside. You turn on football games, man. He's just stay out here with no sleeves on. I am not impressed chat out to all the free thinkers, west leave. They wanna say wall, you're an invest like Wynton Nelson big Hugh showing you that in some parts of this country. Whether it's character building, I was impressed though, that time good grant was out there with no sleeves all that man by one hundred thirty seven years. Yeah. That's circulatory. The air that he is surmounted K mega rule to cold for man that age first name today, alshon, Jeffery. The two minutes left bow down by six big leave Nick in the eagles or driving into saints territory when this happened. The eagles last year SuperBowl champion this year. In real into Lattimore hand under two minutes. This was the game. Right. Seir odd blogging around fortress -ly after the game. Notably outshot Jeffrey says quote, all take that loss. It's on me as using brace in the moment by Doug Peterson and his teammates. But Foale Sean Jeffrey right about taking all that lane. I mean, it isn't not on him. Right. Like he was out there the ball hit him in the hands. It was then intercepted. I mean, nothing is all on what a person ever in one of these games could've stand to have a quarterback who played better. After the first couple of drives. The Nick foles did agree but met the greatest display of toughness I've ever seen in my own to is the time to my mama could Christmas dinner with two careers res-. They were broken two days before is one of those amazing things I've ever seen that was out there playing football with broken ribs. All the goal is so horrible you under those circumstances. Lean Johnson came out after the game and said, yes, the ribs were broken Mra apparently has officially validated. This and this is at schon Jefferies MO last season when they won. Listen for bowl and was also a key cog in that offense. He played every game with a torn rotator cuff in that shoulder. Like book players are just wired differently. Right. I show up here with broken out activities in your life. Are you going to the movies with approach every moment is fit hoping man? I hope I sneeze. Like, that's what all of this is. I can't put that all on what I think happened in part here. One was going to be a recurring theme in these games. Eagles had to play a game last week. The saints did not eagles laws. Brandon Brooks, these I'll lose rank is like these guys subpoenaed these guys dropping early. It wasn't that different than that. Chiefs colts game with the chiefs at twenty eight point lead a couple of years ago, because they drop in dudes now, this isn't anything that I'm gonna point at one person and say, it's your fault and big leave. Nick could have played better should have played better. I agree with all of that. In the frustration. For me is I'm fascinated by the conversation of is choking real. We think yes is. Clutch real this is where as an experiment where football reviews itself to be terrible laboratory to discover tenue isolated variable like that because L Jeffrey we were left with a very flaccid ending and unsatisfying ending because we didn't get the game winning drive that we had dreamed up got a great ending though. Every just wasn't the magical ending that you guys are always talking about life come on. Now that that end when we got to that intersection. That's a big play that is a climactic moment. And then he came back, but look with Nick foles, he is a very very very good backup quarterback. He might be the best backup back that you can have. And you know, what he looked like there by the end of that look like a backup quarterback. And there's nothing wrong with that. But I would point to the fact that they were out there with a backup quarterback. It's having more to do with them now winning that game than anything to do with the guy tried to make catches riff, but can you imagine going like this? No one to ribs a broken. Can't imagine picking up a PlayStation controller with. My ribs being like that. The patriots pages forty one of the charges yesterday after the game. Tom Brady Lillian is filling again a good team. And we played them early this year. I know, you know, we suck and you know, can't win any game. So we'll see it'll be fun. Dude. There is nothing that Goliath lobes more than two underestimated. So they can then complain about being underestimated like, I don't know if we truly gave the patriots all the credit in the world because yes, they're like twenty three at home. They haven't lost two billion years in the divisional round, all of that's true. But they love this. They may object to it superficially, but a tech billionaire loves to consider himself and underdog this country loves the consider itself and underdog and so Tom Brady Tom bleep in Brady gets to be. You know, what you guys didn't respect me? There's nothing noble about winning. If there are. No odds stacked against you. Right. There's nothing about waiting with all the advantages behind the patriots don't have any advantages in that way to support them. But it's been a long time. Anybody really not that law came back to twenty three. Yep now. Yeah. I thought stuck yet. I thought you go scoring points on this one. Hey, the charges were better team this season. There was reasonably charge win this game. There was no reason to believe that the patriots would handle them in the way that they did again part of that is one of those things played last week and travel and this when did the other is valid check is really good at this. So good and the chargers last week the genius thing. We're going to play seventy we're going to stop Lamar Jackson and is gimmicky ravens offense. And they came back this week against the patriots a totally different team. And did the same thing me think. And and that's very inexplicable because of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady did was we're going to be a power running team zone. Even shell you're gonna run the ball twenty four times we're going to do the screen passes the dump off James white and Julian edleman and therefore when Tom Brady wants to pick his spots, you'll be white vulnerable. I think one of the great misunderstandings that you often have about the patriots because of Brady, and the fact that they spread this out is that they won't run it down your throat. Comes down to it investment. A hallmark throughout this time. They believe that where they had the advantage to run the ball. They didn't take a first round running back to not give them the rock, and they gave it to them. And they just ran all over San Diego. Yes. And rob gronkowski. We've been wondering where is ground was once again offensively in terms of the statistics invisible. But as a blocker in pursuit of that tower running game he had maybe his best game in that role. And so the patriots are they done. No. But are they team that loves that? You think they might be done? Even if you don't know everybody loves to say, nobody thought that you could win this game man been a game day of play eighteen years. Nobody thought they could win last name Cuyler Murray yesterday, Mike Leslie of WFAN reported that Mary told the Oakland A's that if they offer him fifteen million dollars, choose vase pullover football if true, Bo what's your reaction to that? They he. You'd better be ready. Just in case, they do it. Right. Because you don't throw a number out there under that circumstance. Unless that is the thing that you really don't want to do because it seems clear than ever. He just really really really really really was to play football and plant the NFL is feasible now than it ever been before you go in there tunnel, given fifteen million dollars outcome. What do you do if they say, okay? That that that decision is harder than I think that anybody would think that it would be yes. And the institution of major league baseball feels like a person being broken up with they are desperate to keep this relationship. Kyle Murray and baseball together they are offering. We'll go to counseling. Learn how to cook. I'll do everything you want fifteen million dollars on about it. Why because baseball has an inferiority complex about losing better athletes to other sports. And for some reason, they think that this dude can be worth blowing up the mold. They have all of the other players in there. Well, this is I think we're dovetails into the complementary interests of Kyla Murray and Scott Boras because think about this if you got bored. You gotta be a little salt. You about the way this is going. You don't represent football players you represent baseball players. But if you're Scott bores, what thing you do not like is the structure of the draft as stand. Now, you wanna be able to get your money for your clients outside of the slotting of the draft draft used to be set up taking these dudes wherever you want it pay him, whatever you want that worked will to have a guy like how Murray you can take them into third row pay a first round pick. And you've mitigated the risks that came for the fact that you might not sign him. But with baseball tell me this no one sure that he's even going to make it to the major leagues. Like everybody keeps telling us that. You know, you gotta go down there. You gotta work on this. Not that likely that he's going to be a superstar once he makes it to the big leagues. So if you give them this fifteen million dollars. What happens when he gets there? No, this feels like baseball responding to receives humiliation. Because this is this is a big story. I mean, they're sending John Rosie of FOX marketing executives to these meetings. Kyle. Trying to convince him. No, you can have everything you dream of that A-List status with us. But yeah, you still got to ride the the second best baseball player of my lifetime right now. Plays in the second largest market in America. And nobody cares. Coming up next to your calls.

Did look good. No. Because he's not very good looking around. His is his first question for the media. Why are you looking at me like that? That would have been my question. This is going to go very well. We're looking at me like that quote. Hey, Jerry Jones about time for culture change. Don't you think? Detail at the Cowboys loss to the Rams Pablo should be really put this when all Jason Garrett. Well, it's funny because we started with the Cowboys being underachievers overachievers and underachievers and our back end the cycle will begin in new next year. But who do you blame bow? When you're apparently your defenses tipping off, how they're going to attack the opponent's because that is what these that's what the Rams were saying after the game was that we knew what was coming and that how defense didn't seem to be anywhere close to its normal self parts because of intelligence breach. It seems now this happens they'll adjust to this on Twitter line coaches figure out these little tales all the time with the other line. It's just not that often that gets the media is not think that this was all Jason gear getting five myself watching that game being late Jason gears. The reason they're lose it. But Jay's Garrett didn't do anything to make me think they should've been winning. Right. And of course, this I didn't have any of that from watching it take a moment to appreciate the fact that Jason has. Job so lawn Teo was in the hall of fame still complaining about how to do should be fired. That's not like te'o retired actually left the Cowboys like whatever your conclusions. Are that? You have drawn Jason guarant-. They are drawn win is going to fix this book come out of this game. If the Cowboys one was looking Sean McVay like I thought you was a genius. That was all we were gonna get in terms of changing coach percents, right? The bad news for the Cowboys. They just went out with a real whimper. They got run upon more than they ever had this season. They had one hundred yard rusher. Run that much on. Then there were two in the same game. It was the most the Cowboys as a franchise have been run upon. But now we have a match that. I think we do enjoy. We have Marcus Peters against anybody else with civically Sean paid into half this video. Keep talking. We don't seem some. Enough. He was saying on the sidelines to tell you keep talking. And then we'll have a good nice little all the Gumbo. Bus terrified G must know that. When you smile race. This has been tainted you kind of unsettled the people around you before if you shout out to Jay CJ why to performance in that game, which allows us all reminiscent. So that we all love Chevy running backs looking like iron head, and he was cut three times last year three top. He that. It. Quote, by far the best cash rushers the best four guys in this league. You've got Justin Houston deformed defensive tackle. Alan Bailey and meet. Chief defensive end Chris Jones after Casey shutdown the colts team defense like this Super Bowl favorite. Asking me if the best offense in the league have deepest it looks like the best defense in the league on the Super Bowl favorite. Okay. Are they gonna play like that again? No. I feel like we got enough data points to indicate we saw the best that they had to offer right there. That's no shade to them because they looked really really good. And I think the point the Ford makes about their pass. Rush is correct. They got guys who can bring. So yet if they look like this. Nobody's going to be them. Any the boulder statement in the world? Yeah. The key to this defense, though is for the offense to get ahead because the defense has their ability. They too can be run upon. But if have a home is going to do what he did in this game, which say basically up by two scores at any given moment starting with five minutes into the game. All they gotta do is pass rush and those guys really good especially against offense of line that we've all said is really impress. Now. The one thing we had to say about that evens. We are talking about a defense that we would generally considered to be vulnerable one. I guess ballot. Check and Josh mcdaniels and Tom Brady in those dudes. It's going to be a matter of whether they got something up because about the patriots early. And maybe we underestimated them having that home game in the playoffs. But I don't feel like the road, and this round has been specially kind. Yes. Especially when they're going to be running a lot. Quo. If it's hard now, what do you think is going to be like what we're trying to get it to the finals? Say Kyrie Irving after Boston loss to the magic Saturday night. Listen to carve message to the young folks come into this expectations. And it's real. Everyone from the coaching staff that are players very much real every single day. So that's new, you know, it's tough. It's all her. And you know, so I think that we're facing now is nothing compared to being on on that stage trying to get a gold trophy. You know, it's hard. Now. What do you think is going to be like, we're know we're trying to get to the finals? The young Celtics feel about hearing this highly Irving spoke for about seven minutes had paragraphs of this is what it's like get ready and reminds me that we've become our elders at some point. Lebron James said something along these lines the him that I'm sure he bristled at. But now here he is at age twenty six being the old head because guess what this is what you signed up for all the chaos a bunch of goes, we're upon you are the alpha male, and I wasn't going to be fair to kyri as related LeBron stuff. Is he always said that he appreciated this kind of stuff right like he appreciated the real insight and the ability to see the profession, right? Biting see. He believe all of those things about the Brown. What he did was the broad being his defacto day net is what he bristled at thing is the age gap between the broad and kyri is bigger than the age gap between kyri and some of these younger guests on the team. Are they looking at him as champion guy? Are they looking at him as guys who was one before? Are they look at him as God who won with the bra or they looking at him as God who believes the earth is flat. Like, I do wonder if getting paragraphs of wisdom from my veteran teammate, and he's also saying stuff that is self evidently ridiculous. Maybe that's part of the issue. But. But this is the this is where I would assume that he knows something. But you're right kyri wanted to be the grown up all the team now gets the grownup on the T coming up next to the Miami Dolphins tank for two of liberation. No, one out-pizzas the Hon. Dodd Arrowhead, the national weather service. Chef said this temperatures could be from ten degrees to well below zero well below zero to your boy one degree that's well below zero forty degrees as well below zero two that's all for this look at that think cold character-building today's number twenty twenty. Because that's the year. The dolphins are reportedly circling for their rebuilding plan, according to Schefter targeting Alabama's to go by Loa. Oregon's Justin Herbert in the twenty twenty draft. How should new coach Ryan flurries feel about that report? I knew it was a setup. That's how he should felt about day. He's like, you know, when they called me I had something about that. That wasn't quite right. Like, I was to interview with an athletic director ABC you and he said when they call him about players. He's into play got for problem academic problem. But it's always a problem. They'll call him about right? Why else would you get? That's the big about being the black do try to head coaching job in the NFL. They're giving you a job we're in appears that maybe just maybe they're trying to lose off the rip. It's a seven. No. There is great logic. What the dolphins are aspiring to do. Yes. You want to rookie quarterback on that cost controlled contract. That is how the chiefs are winning. The Rams were winning all that's true. But you don't wanna be the head coach of tank job because you wear that record around even if. Everybody knows the context. Yes, he will be held against you forever. Well, as I look at this. They're playing here's what I don't understand. Why did you fire gates like this is what you were going to do? What did you find to be disrespectful to ask Adam gays to stick around for this losing if you're playing with the take this out keep the last guy, take it out? Do you think he go mess around wisdom games because there's I to know with the dolphins. Also, they keep tannehill or not. Because if they keep hill, you're not going to get the number one pick. He's too good for you to take it out. You went six, right? If Ryan tannehill does put you on the treadmill of mediocrity where you're not going to be where you are. But you're not going to be good enough to feel good about yourself. And therefore Brian floor is going to be walking around like Hugh Jackson was walking around. Right. Taking all these l we're supposed to what quarterback. Did you get to take? Because you need a quarterback. That's not going to win the game. But you throw somebody out there that everybody knows is not going to win the game. Like, you can't go out there with Peterman as you're already. That would be fascinating. You gotta your contract with the raiders. So, but what are you going to do like if this is playing how do you do it in a way that doesn't tell everybody in the city ignore you quickly? That's what you're doing. Pray for injury. Don't. Closed. Friday do dogs in Oakland that a concert commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of his debut album Doggystyle next night using the staple center doing color for the LA kings. We go to our push push give it to back to the middle back to the middle the middle. Oh, your nephew. Got to be willing to take a shot. It can't be all past. Somebody's got won't. Into this. It's nothing. Sticks. Man, get crank immense in the middle of the rink. Let's go three wounded I liked. It was three. Dion idea. Idea. Why did he do? It always worked at west.

More running news not just people's ended up, but they can't winning rescue. Dude. I said on the show recently there is no announcer at refer over a Spanish language announcer. I'd like to revise my arguments, snoop Dogg is number one and everybody else. Also receive I feel that they need to carry this on the way. I don't know if you remember this maybe us too young, but like hockey jerseys used to actually be in fashion that also have to be back when I knew what was going on in hockey. Like, maybe this is the plan eighteen maybe they could somehow bring it back. I feel like major league baseball pitcher marketing executives away from collar Murray and towards this gentleman. That's right in closing. I'd like to listen to Blake Griffin. Tell us exactly how he feels about clippers owner. Steve bomber right. After tempting to do the exact opposite. Let's watch pre-game lake Griffin has a routine there is his former employees flow. Joe, dude? He ran out of there as much as bomber didn't want him to you can't be rich enough to stop man from doing his routine and after the game. To tweet out something like that. Like, we thought was kind of would you think is hand if it wasn't fire to your? I'm not honestly. He had a whole model. He was like, you know, what I actually do hate this.

When you want something badly enough it feels like your only choice is to pay off. But what if you had a choice to take a stand instead at carmona we believe in treating you better with zero hidden fees. You can drive off without feeling ripped off. That's what it means to live. Fearlessly with von it's time to eat four sit down and get ready to consume in abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross tucker and joe dolan on the fantasy. Feast aiding podcast. Yeah let's eat babysitters fantasy feast eating. Podcast show that is so nice. We do it twice and we do it early for you guys thanksgiving week. I'm ross tucker former. Nfl offense in lyman bunch of podcast bunch of teams i played for. I love thanksgiving. I love i love food. It's like the dream holiday for me. And i love fantasy football with my guy. Joe dolan edgy. Underscore dolan the maestro. The czar of fantasy points dot com where just ended that little code fees. You get a nice discount and you get access to the best fantasy website. I'm aware of and by the way much more affordable ones that are out there. It's a no brainer. You get the guru and dolan and greg cosell and a cast of thousands for half the price these other websites. I see twice the content twice talent half the price you gotta be getting fantasy points dot com code. Feast joe. it's niners. It rams i tell you man. Rams are machine sean. Mcvay i mean cooper kupp and robber woods are open every play. Yeah like i'm finally glad that i they. They figured out that that's something that money be beneficial to them. It almost feels like mcveigh's been kind of out thinking himself in recent weeks. And you know as i've mentioned multiple times on this podcast i never once said the ram offense was bad but it just seems like they were trying to get to many players involved. They were trying to run the ball. Maybe just a little bit too much. And it was stalling. Drives and leading to either premature ponds or field goals and then against the buccaneers. A good defense. Mcveigh's like what cooper kupp and robert woods. These guys are pretty good. Maybe we should throw it to them. I hope that continues because this is the rams team that everybody drafted the team. That wasn't unnecessarily throwing the ball to to josh reynolds. A four hundred times the game or running thirteen tight end sets in mixing in seven different running backs. They threw the ball. They drop bear. Got back Got quick pass to cup. Woods took their shots down field now with company woods. They have been a little bit underwhelming for fantasy this year. But i don't know how you can sit them coming off of that game. Obviously san francisco as all the injuries in the backfield for the rams though may have how do you feel good about any of these guys after that. Game darrell henderson has ten touches for nine yards malcolm brown touches the ball four times cam akers touches the ball. Six times gets in his first. Nfl touchdown this is an ugly free man. Rotation now that resembles the ravens three man rotation in which. I don't wanna trust anybody for fantasy. But when i'm playing When i'm playing a jared goff cooper kupp robert woods and now gerald everett who seems to pass tyler higby on on jared gos- personal depth chart. I feel pretty good about this passing game after that performance against the buccaneers monday night. What about the niner's coming off a bye. Yeah let's see how healthy they get is deebo samuel going to be back Are they going to get their receivers off. The covid list is rookie. Most are going to be back recording this on tuesday because of holiday those questions. We do not have answers to but i would anticipate brandon is still going to be involved here whether or not ibo sandal is back Does that draw shadow situation from jalen ramsey. I wouldn't anticipate at but it could be a tough match for the rookie and for nick. Mullins the quarterback is he going to be under siege in this game. Not a great matchup as the rams are coming off when i would argue is their best efforts of performance of the year against the tampa. Bay buccaneers on monday. Night so we do have a lot of questions about some availability for the san francisco. Forty niners one guy who i expect. We'll get targets in this game though will be jordan reed tight end. Who's going in for george kittle. Let's get to saints. Broncos saint with them hill. What are we need to know So yeah last week. You put the clip up looking pretty up there on on twitter and youtube of me saying some hills role might decrease the way it did when teddy bridgewater started last year. And then sean payton. On friday after i have written thousands of words about our the is gonna look with jameis winston a quarterback sean payton pulls the rug out from under us and a as we saw last week tastes hill broke fantasy football. He was eligible tight end on duel and he was eligible at tight end on. Espn neither one of those shrew. This week as a quarterback only there is a lot of discussion by the way Probably from a lotta fantasy. Baseball purists about tasting hills eligibility being changed on espn because do you play fantasy. Baseball runs absolutely not okay. So one of the key tenants. Fantasy baseball is guys. During the season Positional eligibility is set at the beginning of the season so for instance if a guy is a second baseman fantasy baseball at the beginning of the season even if he plays third base the entire year he does not lose that second base eligibility he would only gain third base eligibility. So you don't lose eligiblity fantasy baseball. You only gain it. So i think a lot of purus were changing. Tastes them hills eligibility to only be quarterback now on espn because the thought process is hey. If i'm smart enough to realize taste hill might start at quarterback and he has tight end eligibility than. I should be able to exploit that i should be able to say. I made that move. Because i was forward thinking. There was a lot of people. Think that the problem is the difference between fantasy baseball fantasy football. Is that a quarterback. Getting eligibility at another position utterly breaks the game. You're not going to break fantasy baseball. Because a first baseman gained some catcher eligibility or vice versa. It's not gonna happen to the same extent quarterback getting a tight end eligibility does in fantasy football so there is that argument but that is not available right now. What is available is taste. Who was a quarterback at tastes hill. Played very well as a quarterback he went seventeen to twenty two did not anticipate that he would resurrect the career. Michael thomas but here. We are congratulated. The michael thomas. He's now back in your lineups and he runs for two touchdowns everything we wanna take hill to do. With the exception of woolen thing no catches for alvin. Kamara men alvin kamara. Drew brees was on pace to break the single season running back reception record. Don't think that's going to happen now. And he's dealing with a little bit of a foot injury. I'm not saying you bench. Alvin kamara but do not anticipate him to catch as many passes. We take some hill quarterback as he did with drew brees because instead of checking down to alvin kamara. Take some hill. We'll just simply take off and run so we have a different state offense that might stretch the field a little bit more but it is very fantasy. Viable tastes hill is extremely fantasy viable as a quarterback one given the way he runs. And he's resurrected michael thomas. I was excited to see him. Kind of force feed him. The ball the saints offense was good. Would say some hill at quarterback. I've been jason hill skeptic at hated the fact that they use these packages and take drew brees off the field but you have to admit that. He passed his first test as a starting quarterback in the nfl flying colors that he did. What about the broncos. Joe well drew lock only threw one interception which is good news for the broncos. The bad news was for fantasy and the passing game. Because nobody else got anything done against miami. Ssim patrick had five catches for one hundred nineteen yards. He's extremely frustrating. Because if you put them in against the saints he might go for three for fifteen He's a wide receiver three. Jerry jeudy is a wide receiver three. He's really struggling with his hands. He's getting open quite a bit but his hands have been less than desirable right now. So i'm a little worried about that I do not anticipate the broncos. Run game to go off the way it went off against miami. Melvin gordon going for eighty four yards and two touchdowns and phillip lindsay going for eighty two yards. The problem with that backfield was neither guy caught a pass last week from drew. Lock so melvin gordon touchdown opportunities. He fumbled again by the way and phillip lindsay doesn't catch passes as is. Both of those guys are dyslexic. Place to me let's get to the chiefs. And the buccaneers. Wow what a game chiefs bucks. Yeah the will the real buccaneers. Please stand up. The tom brady. Who's gonna throw for four touchdowns and get the brady sneak at the goal line or the. Tom brady who people are freaking out about. Oh my god through another duck up there down the field. Bruce arians not necessarily playing to his strengths. Brady's throwing the ball down the field. It's not anywhere close to his receivers Alley the guard was out again. Maybe he'll be back to help solidify. That asked protection in front of tom. Brady donovan smith. Limbaugh for the beginning of that gain against Against rams as well. So tom brady you anticipate. He's going to have to put numbers in one against kansas city. Derek cars put up numbers against kansas city. This game has a fifty six and a half point. Total everybody on planet. Earth is expecting numbers to be put up and i think given the upside of the buccaneers offense. You have to play brady. You gotta play godwin evans antonio brown and rock. It's just that know that sometimes brady's gonna look his age some weeks. He hasn't some weeks he has and it. We've seen that in. The last three weeks brady looking his age twice and looking like he's twenty five on another week. I think this is a weak. Brady's gonna come to play and put up numbers though against kansas city. And when it gets to the backfield both fornet and ronald jones are flex plays i mean i. I'm sick of that backfield. Four net dropping passes all over the field ronald jones. The only played he's made in the last. Three weeks is a ninety eight touchdown run Which obviously counts. But it's the only plays made in the last three weeks. They can't run the ball. They're gonna try to throw the ball and hopefully brady is able to withstand the pressure. And for the chiefs i mean. Is there anything different this week than any other we. I mean. i've actually been a little bit. Surprised with how little on bell has played. The problem is in that backfield for both bell and clyde edwards helaire both of whom scored scored this past week by the way edwards twice and belt once. Is that the daryl williams. Is the hurry up back so wait a minute you got you got cried. Kreider lawyer was a great receiver in college. Lady on bell who's been a great receiver in the nfl and neither one of them is the hurry back for the chiefs so that hurts them both in that regard a at wide receiver. Keep an eye on the status of sammy watkins because it sammy watkins. Place that kills the value of the mark robinson and meco hardman. I mean this guy. it appears apparent. He's more of a backup tyreek hill. Many is sammy watkins. But he is a guy. You've just got to pray. Scores a long touchdown. If you if you play him for fantasy sunday night the bears. And the packers i guess. We don't know who the bears quarterback will be. Joe doesn't it matter yeah It could be false. It could be trubisky. It might be nice either. Both of them are dealing with injuries. The fact that nagy refuses to commit to one makes me feel like he doesn't want to go with foles but i'm not really sure what what they're going to. They're going to be better with against green bay of this by the way this game is off the boards at the sportsbooks right now because of that situation. I'm not sure who it is matters with the number. They only have two quarterbacks on the roster by the way they have tyler bray on the practice squad and kyle slaughter on the practice squad If they want to call somebody up to make the start obviously folder. Trubisky would be better for this offense but i expect alan robinson to catch a shadow from your alexander which lowers is ceiling for fantasy. You would hope. David montgomery is back with from the concussion. This week he's rb to Darnell moonies maybe guy you take a shot on as a as an rb three but sixteen teams playing this week. The bears with an uncertain quarterback situation. I'm not into it right now. Last i checked. I don't know if it's up right now or not as we record this on on tuesday but draft king sportsbook had the game Packers favored by eight and a half more importantly. How about this.

Call one eight hundred gambler joe. Green bay what do you got. Aaron rodgers is awesome right now. Obviously it's not a great matchup but rodgers and davante adams has to be in your lineup. Aaron jones it seems like they're taking it a little bit easy with him. He's still an rb one because of the the goal line equity but they used jamaal williams. So you can play as a flex. And i know a lot of knuckleheads out. There are yelling about markets data scantling because of the fumble. But he's actually played pretty well. Recently i still think he's more of a low end wide receiver three for green bay because allen lazard is back in the kinda got his feet. Wet this past week. I'd probably want to avoid playing either one of those guys. Until i see how that snap share is going to shake out going forward but the green bay is pretty narrow you don rogers every week aaron jones every week Jamaal williams. You can maybe play as a flex play and obviously davante. Adams is the number one receiver in fantasy football okay. Let's get now to monday night. Raw and eagles starwood the seahawks show us stardom decay metcalf. The eagles passed on jayjay. Or theta whiteside. For mcafee's any eagle fan knows any player who the eagles could have had but didn't will go for like three hundred yards and three touchdowns against them decay. Metcalf is going off in this game. Tyler lockett probably going off in this game carson. Get him in your lineup brussels. And get him in your lineup. If you dying for a tight end the seahawks just greg olsen on i are. You can maybe pick up. We'll start him. The eagles the eagles are an utter disaster right now. Ross i mean there's there's no two ways about it i think it starts from the front office down but i don't think it's a very well. Coached football team in. That is an understatement right now. Okay but what about what about the eagles offense. Oh my god. of course. this is how we're going to have to wrap up the The podcast it's broken offense. And what i see right now is a quarterback and wentz who was playing with no confidence whatsoever. He doesn't know what he's seeing. And when somebody like wentz who i mean. I think anybody would argue even his skeptics. Coming out of north dakota state would probably argue at the very least each sharp mentally. I don't see that right now. And i see zero creativity. Doug peterson coming out of a press conference this week and saying jason. Peters who was a turnstile against cleveland even without myles garrett is still are left tackle. When jordan had played a. I would argue. Outplay jason peters. Year i see. Doug peterson coming out in his press conference. Dang we've gotta get alshon jeffery moore involved when as my guy john hansen said. Alshon jeffery. look like a mummy jumping for that pass at the end of the game that was picked off by denzel award. I see complete disconnect between the front office and the coaching staff rate. Here with philadelphia. You you're beginning to get into the territory where you're looking that they've completely broken the quarterback By the way in the eagles they can't they can't just say oc carson. We're going to go. Jalen hurts because his contract so that raises another layer to the jalen hurts. Pick smartest man in the room kind of pick. I don't understand what it was. But i mean travis oldham's disappear. He's got two of twelve targets. The last two weeks. What happened the last two weeks. Oh the eagles decide. They have to play. Alshon jeffery so now travis is getting a little bit. Overshadowed their jalen raiders. Doing all right you know. But the it's hard to evaluate him in this in this environment for me. Dallas goddard is probably the guy i feel best about this passing game had a big game against the browns last week. And i guess you know when against all odds has put up some fantasy numbers and you would think against seattle. There's the ability to put up numbers but once it has been a guy who you know when the eagles make a mistake early in the game. It's just all seems to spiral down ill on them and that's a competent issue. That's a coaching issue. You know when. I look at that game against cleveland last week and i see mile sanders fumble inside the five yard line after the eagles ran the ball down the browns throat on the opening drive. You wonder how much things would have been different. If they're able to punch that in instead of miles sanders turning the ball over. Sandra by the way looks fine to me. He's just making mistakes. He's still in rb one. But this is an offense that even in a good match. I don't know if i can trust it to put up numbers based on how broken everything seems to be and it starts with the roster and it starts with the coaching for me. I think this is a top down.

Game Postponements? Plus Injury Updates and Start or Sit (10/11 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"What's going on everyone? He's an I. Just recorded our latest edition of the fantasy football today and five podcast and about two minutes after we finish recording the news broke that Tennessee titans coach has tested positive. So anything you hear about that game is a little bit outdated. You obviously need to be very, very cautious about that game. It's clearly in jeopardy, but we don't know much more than that right now with that being said here is fantasy football today in five hopefully get some good start or sit information the show and good luck in week five do we have any games that are in jeopardy of not being? Played we'll update you on that plus injury news and starters set right now on fantasy football today and five. Hey Good morning everybody it is five. Let's get ready for the Games. Very excited to watch some football today as or he thought he'd coming here on F F T and five upon tacit. Get you caught up fast on the fantasy news and advice he needs to go. If you are listening in the F. T. feed, please follow extreme fantasy football today in five on spotify. What's going on with Patriots game? They shut down the persona that another test on Sunday morning and you've got to be a little nervous here. I'm. A lot nervous I've been. You know as you've been going through your seventeen intros to get just perfect. Yes. That was number seventeen. I've been trying to take all the James White and REX burkhead out of my lineups, and that's me and I'm starting some jd mckissick Devante Freeman on Sunday, and that's just how scared I am. We don't know and it's possible that I don't know what type of their retake tests this morning I don't know if they're like the rapid tests and maybe we could hear something before one PM kickoff. The broncos are supposed to be flying to foxborough today. But as we saw last week, the Patriots flew on Game Day so they could push the broncos back a day it. I think the most prudent course of action is to act as if the game's not going to happen and the funny thing started funny. But ironic parts is that as of right now, Sunday morning, Cam Newton hasn't even been ruled out yet. So there's a chance if the game is played that he might play. Yeah. I. I I do think there still a couple of I I like life rafts sitting out there I guess. The only game we know for sure that's going to play after Sunday, with is that charger? Saints Game. they've not had any problems at all either of those two teams and last I looked Justin. Jackson was still not rostered an even half of leagues. Okay. Yeah. So that's that's kind of the. If you can go get him if you're super duper desperate if like the titans bills seem more likely at this point to play then the Patriots and Broncos. And the titans we know are not going to have Corey Davis Adam freezing AJ broncos, and played in a month. So Khalif Raymond is probably going to see a half dozen targets and at a big gain the last time the titans put. A Kansas, city coach has tested positive strength and conditioning coach. So. It's Sunday and they play the raiders today. What are we thinking? I I have that happen yesterday and I have heard nothing since that happens that leads me to believe that game is in question. So I think we just proceed unless we hear something else and that's the problem was doing this I should correct myself Justin Jackson available in thirty, six percent of leagues now, but still if you get him. All right he's got a lot more news. Here's Buffalo Tennessee is set for Tuesday and looking looking better. In terms of that game being played Joe, mixing expected to play. Are you starting at both at Baltimore? I you probably have to I would rather start Mike Davis. I would rather start Kareem Hunt. Now we believe where he most it's going to play, and so I would start mixing over Jerick McKinnon who we were really excited about earlier in the week. Could you start mixing? MOSTER. I would start mixing over both I think I would actually start Mckinnon over most you're still they're both right in that low in number two ranch Julio. Jones is going to be a game time decision. How does his status affect? Matt Ryan Russell Gauge. Calvin Ridley Zacchaeus etc. The thing is with the receivers Pacific women zacchaeus would just disappear from being a possible flex Julio Played Ridley engage I think they're efficiency is helped enough by his presence that the lot any loss in volume would be made up for I. Liked them just about the same you're starting calvin relief regardless engages a fine number three. Matt Ryan I would be slightly more interested in, but he'd remain in that low in number one quarterback range Michael Thomas is questionable and as of Sunday morning right now are you putting Michael Thomas in your lineup? He has a Monday night game. I yeah. I. Had that choice in a lot of leagues and in most of those leagues, he's in a flex spot right now because I have a chargers running back that I can put in for him. have one league, right? Don't have that choice and I just like. I don't really have anybody that I feel even it's not like with James Whitewater and binging for JD mckissick. I'm mostly just GONNA. Probably, Roll Thomas out there and hope so you wouldn't start like Darius late and over him. SLAYTON's a little different story like I was saying I wouldn't start mckissick or Devante Freeman over him but I do like I like slate enough that I probably would all right real quick starts and sits Teddy Bridgewater or Matt Ryan were drew brees. I'm going with touchdown teddy and he gets three day Jimmy. Garoppolo is back. Would you start them over Ryan Fitzpatrick? I would happily Kenyan drake or a waiver wire running back. I don't believe. I have any waiver wire running backs ahead of Drake about Kenyan Drake Joe Mixing Kenyan Drake or Levy on Bell? I would start Levian over drake in full PBR and I would start mixing. Yeah. Start makes it over drake do and finally who are just a couple of wide receivers you're feeling good about this week. A sneaky one I'm feeling good about his Greg Ward Dijon Jackson ruled out Alshon Jeffery ruled out they're going to be playing from behind. They don't have Dallas Either Been Greg Ward season enough targets where he has a good day. NPR. And I'm pretty pretty excited about Terry maclaurin. Matchup hasn't mattered all that much. The quarterback hasn't matter all that much. He's just a number one rider see that no one seems to want to treat like a number one. All right. That's your Sunday edition of Fantasy football today in six. Well, you know you need the vote today.

Bruce n last the podcast. We'll get to the NFL's most unstoppable for the white walkers of west roast actually reside in FOX run. I get the white walkers. Don't actually hail from west rose. I guess technically. I dunno game. I have to get caught up on game of thrones. They just announced season eight final seasons date yesterday. I'm a little jacked up about that. I'm a little terrified of what's to come in the AFC playoffs. But I also know that this morning, I can say one thing, and I can feel pretty comfortable about it that amidst all the things that we're going to get do from the NFL playoffs this weekend. The divisional round. With a lot of people. Call the best week of football all year that unfortunately, I don't think lived up to that billing with the quality of some of the games. What it did live up to was producing the four best teams in football. Going into the last stretch of the tournament. When you look at the New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints, the OSs Angeles Rams and the Kansas City. Chiefs moving on the one common thread that ties them all together. Is the one thing we talked about all year. The one thing we tried to get away from in the second half of the season. But the one thing we cannot avoid is that offense is winning games right now. Offense wins championships. That is going to be the bottom line. That's is going to be two thousand eighteen in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred NFL season. Takeaway. But this morning there are a lot of unhappy. People waking up in the city of brotherly love except for one. I know eagles fans were enjoying this ride. I know the today is not going to be well received in that scoring fourteen points to start that game. And then never really managing to piece together some bit of offense again after that has got to be particularly devastating unless you Carson Wentz. Like Carson Wentz. Deep down employs. He didn't talk about a parties waking up this morning. Little bit of a smile on his face a guard. Right. I don't have. I don't have to deal with the biggest what if that was hanging over any team in the course of this playoffs was what if Nichols? Does it again because five minutes into that game yesterday? I thought oh my God. We're going to have a patriots eagles Super Bowl again. Nick foles is on his way to another Super Bowl and BP. And all the sudden I'm gonna have starting all those words about well. The eagles they've got their quarterback. This just a nice story like to to Super Bowl runs later in the nice story. And you gotta start asking a bunch uncomfortable questions that now the eagles get out from under. And now Carson Wentz doesn't have to hear about anymore because twenty and a half million dollars later Nick foles will not be on the Philadelphia Eagles next season. But man, we got close I last year on ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance drivers switched to progressive can save an average of six hundred and sixty eight dollars. Now, part of the reason that is the case. Is because that offense stalled out and that offense with a big chance and in a couple of big moments gave the ball back to the New Orleans Saints, most notably alshon Jeffery that ball the went through his hands into Marshon Lattimore hands in a couple of plays, quite frankly by Marshon Lattimore that turned around this entire game. But hear was Sean Jeffrey on yesterday dropping that pass it ultimately led to the interception. How Sean can you take us through plus play there? Planned in may. I may went to my hands. Catch the ball. Gotta make downplayed us on me. I'll take that loss on me. But not as now sitting city of Philadelphia. That's on me. I'll take it. And you heard the pain there. This is Iran Nissen of one play that ultimately. Feels responsible for the game. But we know isn't. But when it's something like this, it feels eerily reminiscent of what the eagles on the other side of the field with Cody parkey in the bears just a week ago where you've got one player who largely feels like he carries the weight of a loss coming out of the game. But we know that's never the case. We know obviously, there are a lot of guys in that locker room that support him including their head coach Doug Peterson who spoke about alshon Jeffery in that drop after the game. It's hard. I mean, it's really hard because he so he so down, but you know, for me about staying positive, and listen, he's made many many big catches for us to season and continue. He he will continue to do that. And I just told them he's got he's got to keep his head up. And and don't let one play define you. You know, it's not who he is. He's he's too good of a player and. He needs to and he's he'll embrace it. You know, obviously. But you know, and he'll be better for it. But told him just to keep his head up and keep keep plowing. We'll see if alshon Jeffery has a good Morning America appearance coming up next, and well, obviously there will be support there. Obviously everyone in that eagles locker on morality together. I still hold true. That Carson Wentz will wake up this morning and breathe. The biggest sigh of relief of anyone in that city. Now on the other side of the ball. We could talk about the winners. We can talk about the New Orleans Saints who are the biggest bunch of trolls on God's green earth. These guys after that game a game in which quite frankly, the beginning, they were shellshocked you could see across everyone's face. You could hear it in the Superdome. There was an uncomfortable tension in that game at the beginning. When it looked like Nick foles in all that magic was going to go down. Now for this New Orleans Saints team going forward that I thought for most of the season was the best and most complete football team on both sides of the balls. After that weird start they've shown you they can win ugly, which is good. My question is for whatever reason that offense has not looked quite itself. And I get the quality of the Ponant has jumped up to. That's what happens in the playoff as we whittle this thing down, but you really feel like towards the end of the season as much as we're going to talk about the quality of offense of teams for whatever reason. And whether that's been the attrition at wide receiver for the saints. That didn't really get as much of a bump from Ted Ginn coming back right away as we had hoped or as saints fans. Would hope I should say. You've got some real questions about what can happen there is they go into an NFC championship game against a team. That's going to be able to roll it out there in droves on offense as well. That much we saw from the Rams against the Cowboys that will get to. But drew Brees. This game was really defined on finding creative ways to win including some absolute pedal to the metal play calls from Sean Payton. I mean, how absurd what happened yesterday was cannot be overstated aware they call that fake punt from with tastes in hill. That was one of the plays that also helped to turn around that game. The look they called that against this was some of Sean Payton's best coaching in that game to be able to say, I have the utmost confidence in my team in these situations even situations you would not normally do this in. I know Dan Orlovsky what our ears PIN NFL analyst talks at length about earlier in the season. Frank Reich, making a call to go for a two point conversion in a situation or a fourth down conversion in a situation that ultimately turned around the cold season in his mind because it sends a message to everyone that this is the kind of confidence I have in my team well with Sean Payton and what he put on display yesterday. Whether it was multiple fourth-down calls on the drive that ultimately decided the game for the saints. Whether it was that fake punt that again when you have a fake that goes in on special teams play over the course of a game. There are looks that you run that fake against. And there are looks where the personal protector tastes him hill in this situation would come up and call the fake off the eagles left. They're starting defense, or at least the majority of it out on the field for that play. They were in what's called safe where you're expecting a fake. So you. Leave the professional defenders out on the field. And the saints still ran the bleeping fake. Drew Brees the saints quarterback on Sean Payton's play calling for this game. Then then we're Sean long enough now to to say that he's always been like that, you know, for most six until now, I think he's just I think it's it's something that he knows that knows that the offense and the team feeds off of you know, just like calling me onside kick in the Super Bowl, right ambush. It was not a matter of if we're going to call. It was win right? And that's just it. That's the relationship that he has. But it's a reminder for each incarnation of the team that for everyone. That's not drew Brees and doesn't have the benefit of that they know Sean Payton. But man once you get into this stretch of the season for all those young players looking around go. Oh, that's the guy. That's the guy that's coaching us in all of this. That's the kind of confidence he has. How can we mere and reflect that and you see it in the team? Like, again, the biggest bunch of trolls left in the playoff might reside in New Orleans after the game Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram doing the interview and scheme ask which by the way, they should be required to wear into the stadium. If you're going to wear them after the game Cam Newton doesn't bring two outfits to the podium for winter losing. All right winter lost Cam Newton's wearing the same outfit. He rolled up. And so at the very least if you're going to roll over one you troll them before the game all chips in the middle of the table. Whether it's that, whether it's these the Twitter livestream of themselves. Writing the locker room with dreams and nightmares. Which is a nod to meek mill Philadelphia area rapper known Philadelphia sports fan like this team is going to pull no punches. That's the attitude in this locker room, it's reflected by their coaches. Like, those things are very real first and last podcast. Frankly, I'm disgusted that we ever really thought they leave like how dumb are we how do we keep letting this happen? I don't understand how we keep letting this happen with New England where it seems like they're dead. We're we're ready to write them off. And we're actually dumb enough to think we're going to happen. And the worst part now is we ticked them off. A quote, we'll we'll get to Tom Brady. And what he said after the game that sounds ridiculous, but should scare the ever loving bleep out of you. It's first and last by junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app and going into this weekend. I was finally ready to do it. I was the one who have sat here for God knows how long at this point and said, there are just certain teams that until they spit the bit fully and truly. I'm not picking against didn't pick against Alabama and the national championship game this year net didn't work out for me. And I was so shocked and jarred by what happened to the crimson tide when they face Clemson than I thought, you know, what I'm gonna do it. This is the year. We've seen a couple of tremors from the New England Patriots. We've seen them look a little bit less than themselves. We've seen them lose in places that we normally wouldn't this be the year. I'll call it. And I let my love of Philip rivers and is. Wheelbarrow full of children is bolo ties and everything about wanting to see that for someone else in this spot. And I left that all get in the way the fact that this is still the New England Patriots. And they are still doers of the damn thing. Now. This is what I think becomes the most interesting coming out of this is to fold is the patriots advancing now to their eighth straight AFC championship game with the victory over the chargers. They're extending their own record in this case. The patriots are the one man version of what we've been dealing with in college football. And I don't know are we as mad at the patriots as we are at Clemson at Alabama. For constantly showing up in this place for more often than not being the Super Bowl answer. Do we get enough variables from the rest of this? Because the NFL was chalk. Again, we talked about the one and two seeds finding their way in to the final four for this the wild car weekend, essentially, render meaningless after everything that happened this past weekend and the patriots lead the charge and all that. But it didn't feel quite that way. And you know, why it is because y'all offense we'll get to the the overriding point coming out of all this as you look at the final four, and you look at what they have in common. It all lies in the offense of side of the football. Her all that about you can win defense and a run game and all these different things. Now, man, you got to put up points and you got to put up points in droves. And that is what we've got going on. It's first and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app now on one side of this for the losing team. We have got the ever frustrated Philip rivers who looked like us on fire for the majority of the game yesterday. They just played better. I don't know anything with extra extra week. They played better. I don't know that they did a ton of stuff defensive surprises. I drive like I said we answered scored. And and we did some things, you know, we we got the midfield every every possession in that first half just about. But then we just all you know, lack of some third down conversions not as efficient on first and second down. But. When it comes to an end, you know, we can analyze it. All we won't. They scored more points than we did. And they were the better team today. Accurate analysis for me frustrated and beat up Philip rivers. Like man watching Philip rivers double over in pain for towards the end of that game as Trey flowers again. And again found his way into his lap. Like the patriots defensive performance today yesterday. I cannot say enough about that team took V weakness of the chargers and the right side of that offensive line and really their offensive line in general in the interior an absolutely throttled them there. They did the patriot thing like we kept sitting around here going. Oh, yeah. Me peanut brain on the other side saying look with the chargers did last week adjusting their defensive personnel going and making the changes necessary to adapt and beat eighteen like the ravens. And then the patriots said hold my beer, we do this for real and the patriots came out, and they ran twists, and they ran stunts and they got in Philip rivers face all damn day. And they're great players in the back end were great. And offensively that team shoved the ball directly down. Los Angeles is throat. It was it was impressive. And we don't give the Trent Brown acquisition. They're left tackle that. They basically coaxed out of retirement over in San Francisco over there to be large and in charge on the left side of their line. Rob gronkowski looked healthier than we had seen in a while. And you heard him in the bump back there. But as gronk said, even he gets a chance to enjoy this one the game is over and you haven't started preparing for next week it. So he thought right now about that. My thoughts about right now. Then I'm gonna have to enjoy the win. That's what we do. You get one night to enjoy the win actually around here, you do you get one night? And then when you wake up tomorrow morning, and it's on the Kansas City. So get a couple of hours. So I'll be doing that. And then I'll be thinking about next week. And while that's the fun sound that we get to hear because we know the way gronk enjoys games. And so you have to imagine the way the gronk enjoys wins matches that in a way that terrifies Bill bell Jack a bit considering Bronx physical state for most of the season. But no, no, no, it's it's what Tom Brady told you after the game yesterday that should scare the ever loving hell out of you. It's the thing like everything about the patriots threatens to render the rest of the NFL season meaningless. They are truly the white walkers for you game of thrones fan, the white walkers represent all of our fear in the series that nothing that has happened for the rest of the plotline will matter because this one. Unstoppable force will come in a raise everything at the end of this. That is what the patriots truly threatened to be. This is season eight of game of thrones. And the patriots are at the helm Tom Brady is the night king. And when he stood up yesterday at the end of the game and said, well, people think we stink. And don't think that we can win any games. So we'll see what happens that was the window into his soul you needed. This is a slighted patriot outfit. They're a patriot outfit. The despite canceling the noise better than any team. Here's everything that you were saying about them, and they're mad and that scares the hell out of me first.

Fifty seven coming up in about ten minutes. Talk about one man trying to secure his bag by any means necessary in a way that I can only stand in applaud the kick heard round the world and why put on football pants for the first time in six years this weekend. Good lord. But first time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts and. Man, when we look at this weekend in the NFL, I was struck by this yesterday because so much of this year felt like we're waging war for the NFL soul. When it came to how you win how you win in eight league for so long has been held up by cliches like the NFL is a place where cliches can live they can feel comfortable. It's like a retirement community for cliches in one of the most overwhelming cliches has always been defense wins championships closely followed by established the run all these things are important. All these things quite frankly are important to the teams I'm going to mention, but these are also teams in the final four in the saints. The patriots the Rams and the chiefs that this year have in different ways, especially the Rams and the chiefs been part of conversations about the future of the NFL about the offense is about the decisions that we've seen quite frankly made and reflective in the coaching hires. This offseason and the vast overreaction and these major shift in the way that we approach how you build teams. But there's a reason a very concrete reason, it's Lindsey theory tweet this yesterday. So defense wins championships. No the top four scoring teams in the NFL season. This year reached the conference championship round this per ESPN, stats and info one through four the chiefs. The Rams the saints and the patriots are your top for scoring off scoring teams in the NFL this season. However, you want to slice it. The best offense of teams are in this. Did also say that no top-five scoring defense this season even made the final eight. So we saw there was a ceiling where is much as you want to accomplish on defense. And these teams certainly to an extent I mean, Aaron Donald the highest paid defensive player in football residing with the Rams the New Orleans Saints so much of their turnaround in the last couple of years has been Marshon Lattimore he made to the biggest plays in the game yesterday against the against the eagles. Before the patriots and the chiefs these have been to lackluster defensive teams for the majority of the year and is impressive as the patriots defense was yesterday. The other side for the patriots scoring touchdowns on their first four possessions of the game. That tells you a little something the chiefs who this season have been got awful on defense for the vast majority of the time going out and throttling. The darling colts that have been out there. And we will by the way, pay respect to the fallen colts hearing from the one voice in the NFL that we prize above all others around here in our dear sweet, Andrew luck. But when you look at the games that happened on Saturday this weekend in that offensive trend. These are really the guys that we're talking about like when you talk about the Rams and the chiefs this has been the defining teams really the Rams for the last couple of years and what Sean McVay quite frankly has done to the NFL. You could argue in the last few years while the patriot. Have been the defining dynasty of the last decade. Plus in the NFL, Sean McVay in the last two years has changed the NFL on a major way. Sean, I don't think you could overstate what he has managed to do two and four this team. Now for this team. They're not any different. You're going to hear a lot of the same cliches coming out of them. But it's the way they've gone about it, and what this offense in particular what Sean McVay and him standing up there and doing card tricks at the press conference with other teams rosters and plays. The remember what it's done to everybody. It's I mean, you saw this off season across the board three to four coaching hires that you can all trace back to Sean mcdaid all the jokes about a thirty two year old head coach having a coaching tree already. No one has had the effect on the NFL in the last two years. John McVeigh has no one now. Whether that's good or bad remains to be seen. But this is where it goes. We just mentioned the top four offense of teams in the NFL making their way to the final four. Now if you listen to Rams running back Todd Gurley who was playing second fiddle to thick oh mode himself. C J Anderson going out there and dominating for the Rams Todd Gurley says this this itchy. If is good really good real real real good. Great. Excellent. But this one more key win first and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. And so if Sean Payton or excuse me, Sean McVeigh is the sure thing. On one side for the Rams someone who was influenced the NFL more than anyone over the last two years. I don't think on the other side we can get away without saying that. Jason GARRETT'S been the most question coach in the NFL over the last year or two that especially this season. When we talk about what we're what were the major storylines. It was the patriots demise, which we all tried to predict fail at. It was the offensive explosion in the NFL that we talked about it has borne out success that has been led by Sean McVay who's been the most influential coach in the NFL for the last two seasons. You then look at the other conversation that we constantly had was we fired Jason Garrett in the middle of the year. Then the Cowboys got good now, we're not sure what to do. The Cowboys are in a position with Jason Garrett that the eagles were almost in with their quarterback. And Carson Wentz, Nick foles. Finally ran out of magic yesterday. But for the Cowboys now you wanna play off game with a coach that was much maligned during the course of the season in an offensive coordinator in Scotland a handle at a lot of questions before Amari Cooper came over. Now, what is there left to do? In the interest of keeping up with game of thrones. References here is ESPN's. Sportscenter anchor L Dunkin joining the best week ever yesterday on ESPN radio with this to say, I think the Jerry Jones has has to decide what is more important to him winning and actually contending for Super Bowl. Not just making it to playoffs or having an inside guy in there because let's be honest. That's why Jason gear still have his job. He is on the Jerry Jones camp. He's an inside guy. He's a little bird who sings his little birds just like game of thrones. And tells Jerry Jones everything he needs to know. So what's more important? What is more important? If you're the Cowboys also the continuity that comes with all that how far away do you feel in all this because the one other thing they made very clear what they're going to re-sign deck Prescott. Jerry Jones, essentially told us that as plainly as you can during the season. So how do you go about that? Because we see everywhere across the NFL again. The trend lately outside of hiring Shaw. Mcveigh's friends has been who's your quarterback comfortable with. How do you figure that out? How do we make sure the quarterback is the most comfortable environment proc- impossible? Now a lot of people have had questions about deck Prescott s- prowess as well during the season. But the other thing you've got to ask is how much of it. Do you think is him, and how much do you think is the people around him the coaches around him because we've also seen other places like the titans make moves in the best interest of getting the most out of that quarterback position in a way. They don't believe. But it seems like a lot of people might think we're seeing about the most we will out of debt Prescott. And it's good enough to win games in the NFL. Good enough to win you a playoff game in the NFL where does any of the ceiling? Go beyond them. Where does any of the ceiling? Go beyond just get in the playoff win game. Get sent home. Is there anything about the combination of Jason Garrett and Dak Prescott that says the Cowboys can win a Super Bowl it? Eight seven to nine three seven seven six because my honest answer right now is probably not. I don't look at that as a Super Bowl winning tandem of head coach and quarterback. And we've got a face that uncomfortable reality with a couple of people. We might have to face that uncomfortable reality with Philip rivers who I think is an infinitely better quarterback. Obviously veteran quarterback a hall of Famer, but guy was probably not going to win a Super Bowl in the course of his career in a year word felt like their best shot was on the way, we're getting closer and closer to where we may have those conversations about Andrew luck. Now, I think when we look at the other match from Saturday when we look at the colts and the chiefs, Andrew luck and Frank right? I'm willing to bet on them. I think that's a Super Bowl winning conduct combination. The way that we have seen Frank Reich Mary with this team. Obviously Chris Ballard in the front office deserve a lot of credit for the groceries. They brought into the kitchen on this and the draft picks that they made this year. I think that's eighteen that can absolutely win a Super Bowl, especially on the time line as at some point the patriots will slow down or fall to. Potentially. The old line about father time, we won't go back to that one for anyone that was listening to goal can win go last week. But the chiefs offensively what they have done. This season has been a major story, and when we can get more into coming up in just a little bit because we really are hanging. Our hopes and dreams on them. As far as something different. As a result in the NFL this season for everything that's happened. Again. The patriots the white walkers loom in the distance threatening to erase all of it. And yet Patrick Mahomes. Our young MVP who will hear from in just a few minutes. Is the last real threat of that? And the chiefs represent the most extreme version we talked about Sean McVeigh and this Rams team being the biggest differentiating factor. The most influential factor in last two seasons. Patrick Mahomes in this chiefs team and their success really threatened the old NFL guard about as much as anything that exists. They are the extreme version. They are the true air raid. This is Mike Leach's dream when he talked last year about the air raid principles on display in the Super Bowl in the playoffs. We have found the outer limits of that in Kansas City. But on the other side, we do have the fallen coal to represent the old guard, and we have to hear one final word from their leader are famous voice in the NFL that we've been do to for one more year. Here is Andrew luck. A lot of it came down to execution. They executed better than we did. We could not establish a rhythm in that hurt. It really hurt. It's tough sledding. Those three and outs that put our defense in a bad situation. We needed to answer some of those early drives. You know with with the least flip and field position putting points on the board. And that certainly not the start we wanted and not the middle. We wanted not the finish we want it. First and last the podcast first. And last podcast. We did a gang. By we did it. I mean, I went to Chicago. I tried real hard. And you know, what failing failing greatly in the attempt is still admirable or at least. That's what I'm going to tell myself when I have to go over and relive this moment on golick window, where they actually have the ability to show video on ESPN two. It's versa. Last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. You can get touch us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. That's eight eight eight seven two nine three seven seven six. Triple eight say ESPN get triple action protection for optimal engine performance with shell v. Power nitro plus premium gasoline. So this weekend. Our friends over at goose island honor of what you heard reference there. The Cody parkey missed field goal in the wildcard round of the playoffs that ultimately helped send the bears home early for the offseason earlier than they planned earlier than a lot of us expected. The eagles beat the bears Cody parking missed a forty three yard field goal. Hit it off to count them to portions of the uprights. And was booed mercilessly by Chicago, Bears fans and received all sorts of death threats and hate tweets and all these fun wonderful parts about living in two thousand and nine thousand nine on social media, and I many others came to his defense. I thought a lot of that was Bush league. But what it comes down to is. It was still part of the game in the part of the game that he lost. But it's also difficult to appreciate how hard some of these things are even as someone that played. I have definitely muttered under my breath, some obscenities when kickers and situations that would have benefited me have spit the bit because you do have one job. So goose island beer company. And Chicago went out of the way to show people. Just how hard that one job was. And so they set up a challenge outside of their brewery in Chicago, they said we're going to put a set of goalposts up there. You can come out and kick a forty three yard field goal. They laid down that gauntlet to anybody as they put the armchair ballers sitting on their mountain of potato chips, and vape pens masterful work by their Twitter account. So I went we actually we spoke this into existence. The you know, the secret or whatever the hell that book is we spoke it into existence last week. We made our way to Chicago, and I put on football pants for the first time in about four years, and it was uncomfortable. And I forgot how much you know, when when you get done playing sports. I think the one thing you miss the most the people don't talk enough about his police escorts because getting places quick as always great the one thing. You miss the least is putting on football pants 'cause they're uncomfortable. And they're rough, and they usually signify I'm about to go out here and hurt myself for a little bit. And I thought going into this. So I I am out there. I am in football pants. If you haven't seen it at Golic and wingo on our Instagram feed. Agla going on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed, I go out here and absolutely lead. All the way into this. I am a football man wearing a goal can wind. Go jersey trotting up there to make this kick. And funny thing happened along the way. I actually started to convince myself my own peanut brain that with very little practice with almost no experience in this that I was somehow going to have a shot at it. And then it started snowing. And then it kept snowing, and I got up there and on my little patch turf. That I was gonna kick from we had to kick over a six and a half foot seven foot tall fence to mimic the pass rush. And then hit a forty three are field goal. I thought. All right. They're still chance. I pull this off. Then I saw the fence then I saw the snow and downgraded expectations through. All right. Let's get it over the fence. Let's get it up in the air. Let's not fall was not hurt ourselves. There was an injury ten. There was everything that was prepared there. And if you haven't seen some of the super cuts of things, I can assure you this one no one was actually hurt which is an act of God. And it self and two I was nowhere near the worst person to kick a field goal. Now. I was the very first person. I did hook it hard to the left and almost hit somebody that was waiting in line. But I accomplish my goals. I got up there. I address the ball with confidence. I got it up over that fence. I did not. Fall, and I did not injure myself. And through that process. I got to fully understand what Cody parkey dealt with. I heard the cheers. I heard the boos I heard the slings and arrows, and none of them could Pierce my because I knew in that moment, I had solidarity with my kicking brother, Cody parkey now, it was all in all seriousness. A great event a great job. I everyone involved. No one made it by the way. So when you talk about this, no one in that crowd. And there was a bright around one hundred people that they let in a great crowd out there hundred people got a chance to kick. Nobody actually made it and they were cleats. There were very serious pre-game rituals that were everything that you would expect from people with a lot online in this one. No one was able to do it. So maybe just maybe this breeds a newfound level of respect for what went on there. I understand that. None of us were compensated to be kickers in the NFL the way, Cody parkey is man sometimes you gotta just appreciate things for what they are. I last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. So that was an experience. This weekend. I got to enjoy the rest of my Sunday. My football Sunday knowing that I had a clear conscience and a hamstring that was still attached to my body. Thank you for listening to the first and last podcast.

Thanks for listening on surrogate right into it. <hes> the last episode was my live draft from my a side bet city friends <hes> fancily <hes>. I hope you guys joined it again. That was recorded on youtube. Be was a little crazy now. Now rapper flo wildly drafty <hes> so it was a little it was alright alright. I hope next time i he i can kind of. Have you know if you guys better understanding what was going on but you know it's so actually been doing bring it right to the n._f._l. Big trade big trade on saturday khalil mack trade to the bears and end and it's khalil mack and a second in twenty twenty in the conditional round pick twenty twenty two the bears. The bears traded away first round. Pick in this aucoin draft next year's draft <unk>. Did the bears get khalil mack for a good price. I'd say show. I don't think khalil maximum make a big difference going into the season with their defense. It's late in the year ear as far as getting a mesh going so the first couple of games. I think you're going to be rough. He doesn't know the playbook he has no the calls <hes> we go out there and ball which he's good at doing. I think that everybody's or estimate his ability a little bit. I don't think he's the savior of the bears. I think the bears are long term. The project and they're on the right track too risky. They got receivers out there now and obviously they're looking to stack their defense which which has been you know a focal point a d._v._d. To to have a better defense lily <hes> and i hear a lot of people talking smack about jon gruden and things he's been saying and i it was his decision he was on it than it wasn't it was higher ups and it was a conglomeration of decisions and regardless was his decision it or not. I think that you know he felt that khalil mack for what he was getting wasn't worth the price and that happens i mean i don't understand why why people people wanna complain. You know if you don't like the price asked for trade. Sit out the bills. Doing you know you have options. They're not good options. Lady on bell still hasn't reported yet but you know khalil. Mack had an auction the s. for trae. They found a trade. They got rid of him. He went to a place. It's hopefully going to give him the contract you want and that's that's it's pretty simple <hes> ozzy anything crazy going on with that ah other than dropping martavis bryant off the jaw jon gruden drug martavis bryant but again. That's another guy who ooh apparently wasn't putting in the effort. They wanted so cubs as i mean you know it's it's. It's you know you got the guy he's not doing what you wanted. These you know by all accounts <unk> kind of walking through everything so caught him. I don't have a big <hes> think big to do about it. I've also did a little research. We're going into season next week. Thursdays first game and right now based on everything that's going on the preseason season. The teams have played. I just did a little quick <hes> joe schmo power top five n._f._l. Teams honorable obviously <hes> worst. I so oh number five coming into number. Five and philadelphia eagles defending super bowl champs their their offense is a little shelter when is still not clear to play on. It's unknown when he will be cleared. <hes> nick foles since he got hit in that i i think it was the first or second preseason game. You're messed up your shoulder a little bit <hes> he hasn't been playing the same now that could be many things that could be the coach selling amounted to much could be the trainer's not telling them to do too much. He's not going to do too much wi- at all on the line for preseason games so i can see that <hes> you know maybe he's just holding back a little bit more. We get into the season hill l. Let it go. The eagles are also missing alshon jeffery fur elise the first three games this season so i mean right there big card hard their offense that they had is kind of up in the air. Although now i do believe that they're wrong games a lot better with jay giant the backfield having a full season half now to come into marin the playbook. I mean he did pretty well. Considering he was traded mid year. Last year didn't know the playbook he just kinda came in then they simplified stuff for him. <hes> j.j icy a smart player simplification with more so he can ease into it a quicker to get reps and now you know with a full playbook in complement of the people. I think the optimism is high on the offense. If everybody comes back defense is still good defense. You know as a defense wins. Champions are championships so <hes> that's that's. That's why why would still keep the eagles in the top five because you know could be cleared tomorrow and be playing on sunday. <hes> foles could just be holding back and when shawn comes in they got their number one white outback axo people think number four is patriots. <hes> you know to tom. Brady bill check lesson. They're most likely will repeat as a._f._c. champion and the a._f._c. opponent in the super bowl <hes> so did not much to say. It's it's. It's very simple. Equation bell check picks guys. Tom brady can make good those guys produce. They win division. They get a buy. They kicked kicked the playoffs in the superbowl happens. It's a it's a recipe. That's been working for longtime now and i don't see definitely. Don't see that changing agent number three. I have known saints. I'll put it down right now. The big guy thinks that <hes> the states might have the highest scoring offense coming coming into the season. I know drew brees not have as many touchdowns as he would like last year. I think that they fed camera and and and ingram a lot <hes> <hes> and that kind of took the pressure off of juries. I think this year they're going to get a little more. <hes> <hes> out a little bit. They're going to let it fly a little bit. You know even though ingram is suspended for the first you know few games. I'm you know obviously drew. Brees is still there. Chimeras going to be getting the work load in the backfield and now they do have michael thomas and he is a legit number one wideout as you can see in the preseason games the practice footage minju breeze have a connection drew brees likes to throw him an and considering that this could be the highest scoring offense in the in the this could the highest scoring offense in the league this season michael thomas could be a top five guy. No questions asked these definitely legit number one white out the number two we gotta the l._a. Rams you know the defensive player of the year aaron. Donald finally signed so you know one of the best the france in the business back to the band's back together again they also edit two cornerbacks veteran quarterbacks the team this year a key to lead marcus peters. I think that's something that they wanted to solidified. They want to win now. Team on those guys still a couple of years left in and they can kinda groomed the younger guys getting any your guys experience under under these guys are moved to good pickups. They did not spend a lot of money for them. Wasn't that much space they really they really took a find. The guys figure out who they wanted and pick them up the defense. Obviously is is amazing in l._a. Is it's pretty much. You know it's it's the the whole team in l. A.'s is pretty much dream team. <hes> your brain cooks on the offense this year. I'm unsure of him. He's he's not too many teams in twenty years. What does that say about his locker room presence but why guys keep wise they keep moving around and moving around moving around. You'll maybe being on the rams. I know girlies outspoken gauci's announced q._b. <hes> so maybe they can settle down obviously stacked. Oh stack the fence you. You deserve to be number two <hes>. I think that the the n._f._c. is going to have such a big contender so many contenders fighting phyllis playoff spots. It's gonna he can be crazy that conference in the number. One i hate to say is a green bay fan but my number one power team the n._f._l. Right now the minnesota sorta vikings <hes> pretty much. They added her cousins to already stack team. So you get a super bowl contender as long as cousins can still throw a deep but protect the same time which he seems capable of doing <hes> he didn't in washington. He didn't make too many risky moves. You may just enough risky moves to win. You you game <hes> and that's that's pretty much what you wanted to him as a quarterback you know he doesn't have to be tom. Brady aaron rodgers just has to be himself. Protect the ball and the defense needs the ball out. Keep up that purple people eater attitude on the definitely have the whole the best line in the whole game right now. I'd say while th rams have the best defense as as a team a minnesota has the best defensive lineman in the business. The dow cook a whole year dalvand cook. I mean you know we know what we know what we can do in little splashes. We saw them last year coming off an injury but you know what. I think that it's going to be more workhorse in more than people think <hes>. I know people talking about timeshare up there but i don't think it's going to happen so just go back to number. Five is the eagles number four number three the saints between the rams number. One is the vikings and again. It's kind of stack with n._f._c. Teams new call me home because i'm mitch. I'm a green bay guy but i just think that the n._f._c. conference has stacked teams this year. I think that the patriots are obviously going into season. Look like they can repeat. They look like the clear winner of the a._f._c. So i don't see anybody close to them really <hes> but yeah so those are my top. Five is the joe schmo power top-five n._f._l. Teams before the season. I want to roll into a little college. Football was the first week in college football men and really i wanna talk about michigan and the michigan notre dame game injured horrible and of course maybe in a michigan fan <hes> it was tough to watch me all a lot of a lot of the same stuff i've seen since harbaugh took doug over and i've been harbaugh fan. You know forever <hes>. I'm not one of those people that likes to fire people off the bat. I almost a coach the something egregious or you know the overall record is such that you know you you. You're so bad that you you really can't compete. I don't really like to fire people so i think people jumping on the fire. Harbaugh wagoner disgruntled crazy <hes> i do think he made a lot of mistakes in the game. <hes> i think his first mistake was starting shape passionate quarterback i mean he looked like the killer like your headlights and the kids played in big games you know he was running around all over the field for ole miss. You know it's not he's in the he was in the s._e._c. It's not like this to be new new to him but he looked scared so i don't know if you know it was just a complete rebound offensive line which you could be but from all the things i've heard it's the offensive align is is what improved the most and if that's the biggest improvement men were were. They're in trouble tactically speaking. I think harbaugh casinos when to play the hot hand and obviously shape patterson didn't have the hot hand and when dylan mccaffrey came in. He led them down the field. He led them for a touchdown. Now you get the ball back back with a chance to tie the game up with two minutes left and you put shape patterson back in who didn't do anything all game. You had a quarterback that came in and bought out and got you into the end zone once late in the game to keep you in it and you don't stick with him in the next year. He's like it's it it. It's crazy to me and look what happened. Patterson fumbles and notre dame recovers and that's the booking and you know i'm more about giving a guy who <unk> who worked for two fair shake and i'm all about giving the starter the benefit of the doubt but at that point the starter had had not gone done for three and a half quarters what more evans union that she patterson couldn't win this game tonight or that night in that place you know sometimes in this game loyalty goes too far and i never really say that but i think our boys loyalty to patterson went a little too far far you know the the the the third string mccaffrey actually the third string you know he he balled out. You got him back. You've got the team going. You know. The defense came up with the big stop after that because you know what that's what they needed they needed long drives and you know you could talk shit about the michigan defense defense and they didn't do this. They didn't do that. They had an injection call early in the game <hes> sick and tired of fighting those any contact to the head could be an injection saw saw. You know this is the third or fourth year doing this rule now. It's it's gotten to the point where it's a little ridiculous but that's the role so it was an injection one of their safeties starring safety is now out okay next up than bush. Linebacker gets hurt all right next man up and you know what not noriaki scored twenty four points on them and they scored the first touchdown real quick. You can call that you know first game jitters. The michigan defense had some good stops. You know it's just one of those things. Michigan had a first tough game. I mean usually they get to play powder puff in the first game in plano name in the second. It's not what the not what the the n._c. Double a. wanted. That's not what the big ten wanted. They wanted the lights and the cameras and sometimes sometimes. I think you've got to rethink it like especially. Since you start trying to start out with new quarterback <hes> that's unproven in the big ten and unproven in michigan and i think the money that big dog sign that you ching that went off in the heads of of the people over there michigan to have this big game first outweigh the fact that they might lose the game so now michigan has to hope that they went out when the big ten notre dame looks really good because to be honest if notre my name is only loss michigan. Let's say michigan wins out wins. The big ten and notre dame goes on and loses. Maybe one game <hes>. Maybe they lose to u._s._c. <hes> but other than that they go undefeated michigan does still have a shot. The playoff i mean is it. A slim shot heck yet. Flu shot <hes> but a shot to shot at this point. I mean you know come on but <hes>. I'm not on the jim again to repeat. I'm out on the fire. Jim harbaugh bandwagon <hes>. I disappointed in the product put out and that's on him. Also there's been some controversy with brian edwards former michigan wide receiver former jets wide receiver coming out and calling out individual players and then calling the team trash and <hes> uh-huh you know i think i think it's kind of distasteful for a guy who works on for the big ten network to really go after an individual player when he shouldn't be i mean they are still kids. You know it's it's not hard to to to say you know every once. They all you know when the kid makes it. When the person makes mistaken they play college. Football leaves just a kid. Well exactly you're calling out a kid on social social media that is not a neo cannot is not considered an adult yet sometimes and i think that you know it's not right for him to do it. <hes> i know that <hes> right away khalid held the a former michigan a player. He's on the seahawks. He tweeted back to brennan edwards so the <unk> was was this raises breezes. Week line is weak. Shave scared fucking michigan. Offense is so predictable michigan football sadly one thing trash now. Caesar is a guy that they brought in on the line line again. You really shout out one individual lineman. You know the line. I tell it to my kids that coach the lines unit. If one guy let's up a sack. You'll end up a sack. If one guy fall starts you start and berlin which you know that but you know what he's been a douche most of his career so maybe he doesn't anyway clint hill response response to him. Excuse me that you went to you of them and you've got the nerve to throw up a tweet like this when they turn around which they will don't be the one trying to say you knew they would from the jump. I don't give a fuck what you did michigan. Those guys. Don't deserve that neither does the team and good for calill. Stand up to the guy and say you know what screw you so. You don't have the right to say that about those kids and you'll these players are killed. <unk> hill played with you know so i mean it's not like he. He has just been there so you know i think i think to come out and really throw it down. Like that is is is is cool and then apparently in more edwards he was suspended from the big ten network for the comments and i think you know i i don't know i think i think the way he went about it again. You know you know using regional language used calling out specific people you know it was it was as you know it is what it is and then and then responded after getting gang suspended <unk> sell funny that everyone is worried about my tweet as opposed to the real issue in seventeen hundred against ranked opponents won six against rivals and one win against a three nine shooting last thing i will ask it really wanna know oh before you get mad is michigan better than iowa and again. I'm not saying you gotta come in and be michigan this in michigan that ended up but to call out the individual players. I think that's right. You know like to do it like that the way you did it. You can say you know caesar. We obviously not up to the task right now. In this game same thing when she patterson but like you know it just the way he went about. It was kind of you know with with his vitriol and then he had the nerve to delete it like you know you wanna talk you. You wanna talk trash about the tweet wanna talk trash by the team. You're going to tweet it and then you get suspended for tweet and then deleted it so like you know and then he wants does it come and say everybody's worried about my tweet as opposed to the real issue but if you stood by tweet one of deleted a man that's the thing like stand up and take it like a man. If that's going to be your tweet because that's what you were thinking and you wanna put out that thought so why delete it you know. There's nothing you know. There's no. There's really nothing to say <hes>. Do i think he should be suspended. No do i think he should have got a little. You know talking about the way he went about calling kids out. Yes <hes> but you know that's. That's what big ten wanted to do so this this. There's you know there's nothing to do so again. Michigan is in shambles right now. The plane western michigan ask next week recipe. What's going on a c. j. She patterson to right the ship. If you can't then it's time to go to a backup but that's that's about it so as we spoke talk about in the top of the top of the show last last episode my <hes> my live draft with my shed city buddy so so it's a ten team standard scoring <hes> what happens is we have one starting quarterback to starting running backs to starting wideouts. It's one flex which is a running back wide receiver tight end one tight end one team defense special teams one kicker six bench spots. There's no i r spots in this league and in the winter of the league the previous year gets the hold onto a belt gifts in grave belt tonight's belt and also gets to choose how we decide the draft order for the next season so this has been going on for a little while so some of them were like you know our pick them. Out of the hat than one year was lori system kind of like the n._b._a. So the guy who came in last gets his name ten times in the hat and you pick it out. <hes> you know then we then you know stuff while at around like one guy wanted to play a two hundred dollar buying card game <hes> we nixed that really quickly one because nobody wants to spend an extra two two bills and to because we take so long the dam poker tournament up before the draft generally we draft on weeknights. That's when we can all get together and we'll have to go back to our jobs the next morning so that was out so we did a <hes>. We did a beer pong shooting one year <hes> you know we we put numbers in the bottom of the cups. We mixed up the cups. She threw a a ball. You hit the cop. The number you got was number. You picked then we tournament one year. Of how many times you've how many cups you can get in two minutes shooting. <hes> this year rico the current champion decided we were all gonna take the wunderlich test and he found a six minute <hes> twenty-five question wunderlich tests online and <hes> it's <hes> it's scored on a fifty points based on how many correct how many you got wrong and the time it takes to do it so we did the wunderlich test and the big guy. I'm gonna go to little got first place. I got thirty two at a fifty on the wunderlich. <hes> then it went to the next closest to me. A couple of guys tied with twenty eighteen couple. A couple guys got sixteen. One guy got fourteen. Whatever whatever so instead of instead of just saying i got the first pick it was whoever however the order shakes out. You get to pick what you want. <hes> the guys who tied they played a little rochambeau to figure out you know who who got the pick <hes> so it was fun to see so you guys all you guys are probably hear about it on the last podcast anyway so i chose the second pick. I don't wanna be the first pick <hes>. I wanna see who the person who's gonna take and then let it fall. Let the chips fall may <hes>. I think this year your best bet is to be on the turn. I think that in a ten team league rounds six through eight are kind of dangerous areas definitely if you fall into those those <hes> picking points in a ten round draft left. It's it's gonna be tough very very tough so my was my first pick number number. Two pick was todd gurley. Obviously i'm going to pick a star running back in a standard scoring league and then generally my my strategy edgy is best player available <hes> i do. I also like to go quarterback late so i was trying to quarterback late this time <hes> but <hes> accident happened <hes> so i take my second pick all the way to the end of the second so i get michael thomas. The saints wide out <hes> tom hi on him. I like i said previously in the in the joe schmo sports power five. I think he's he's legit number one. I think he'd be a top top. Fighters five receiver then on the wrap around. I wanted to go and get another running back. Joe mixing was there. I know he's more he could be more p._r. Margai and the bengals offensive line is shaking but he was the best running back available so that was another long. Wait i get to the the into the fourth round and sitting right in front of me is larry fits couldn't pass him up another one. I wanted another one a number another a number one wideout again. This is n._p._r. But i think it's going to be the larry fit. Show this season you know. He does score touchdowns on on the wrap around. I said you know i really need to get <unk> some depth at running back. Someone who go running back lamar miller was there. I think the shawn watson being back open up lamar miller. I think quarterbacks i i think defense is will back up out of the box a little bit with shawn watson there or even if they're if they're not out of the box maybe they're you know they're putting a spy on shawn watson and that's one less guy that's going to be looking at <hes> the more miller and then here's here's where i said my <hes> my quarterback strategy kind of went awry <hes> <hes> by the time i got to the end of the sex you know again. We're in a standard scoring so the wide receiver depth is there but not like would be in peoria where you can pick up a guy and say oh well you know his touchdown production might not be there here but his reception points will get me something so i had russell wilson sitting there. I believe russell wilson is gonna do something this year. He's gonna run a little bit more. I think <hes> with the guys is it. He has out there then chris karsh. The run game opens up the read option game for them. Which is something <hes> russell. Wilson has been successful at in college in the n._f._l. So so so. I decided to drop that the best player available was wilson so i took him and then on the wrap around again i wanted the more rhinebeck death because wide receiver is so deep so i picked up rex burkhead. I think he's gonna be the number one for the pats. I think he will get the goal line carries so even if even if he's off. Maybe i down hell vaulter. Those those goal line carries away from whoever star became then we go into the bottom of the eighth pickup corey davis again koi davis fell. He's number wideout for the titans. How do you not pick them up. In that spot in the in the eighth round that would have been the like seventy m._d. Eighth or eighth pick <hes> and then coming back around since i picked up rex burkhead decided to go after sony michelle <hes> i think i got in the ninth round picking up a sony michelle. I know he's injured but you know if there's one guy that's going to take away the reps from experts head. It's going to be sony michelle l. I just feel that he's the he's the guy needs to take as far as like a handcuff in a flyer. I think he'd fit really well there and then we bat wraparound back back to the tenth and i had a number another number one wide receiver in my face alshon jeffery. I know he's injured. I know he's missing the first couple of games but we're talking about the tenth around on here. We're talking about the hundred eighth. Pick one hundred ninth pick so you're telling me i got michael. Thomas larry fits fits corey davis a number one number one number one and then if alshon comes back in game for i'm gonna assume he's still the number one guy i mean. He was a number one guy all last year so take a fire on him in the tenth round. I don't think it was as bad as as as a strategy as i could have done on there. There's a lotta running backs there that i really didn't mean went running back early. There's a lot of wide receivers that i felt didn't have the value there so i felt all right i can. I can sit for three or four games and deal with them. Because i have the other guys then on the flip. I saw emmanuel sanders again he was he was value guy. I picked up. He probably should have went in the eighth or ninth round again not p._r. He doesn't get touchdowns that <hes> that thomas does but watching the the preseason gains case keenum likes you. Throw your manual sanders and that's what stuck out my head like you know. He's a safety. The guy is just gonna keep getting plays you know getting getting touches and throws on plays that might be garbage chute levin round. I'll take that <hes> at this point. I had i had i had already picked up my starters pretty much. After i picked up wilson i had i had all my starters set except for tight end so i came around to see who was there and jack doyle was sitting in front of me and attempt teen league. Maybe he's not a pickup but we had a couple tight ends. Go early. We had people take to who titans already. I'm more a fan of finding value guy and if he stinks stream for the rest of the season but i think doyle is a safety valve for luck. I think look when he he doesn't go deep looks for doyle. He loved oil and like. I said if he doesn't work out i can we stream. There's a couple of good tight ends like a pickup and then then then in the third round that left ah thirteenth round that left me with choice. I decided to get another running back. I picked up around jones's second. You know he's the backup tampa but by all accounts. It looks like he's thinking the starting role at some point so it's good to stash him as a late ralph liar then broncos defense again the defense doesn't work out you can stream and i picked the kick around new orleans lutts and like i said in the power the power five new orleans kicker is most likely to be on the high scoring humane n._f._l. So why not get get those points so i'm just gonna read through some of the <hes> <hes> the draft analysis here i i put some stuff in the fancy pros draft analysis and what does it takes <hes> like a composite average draft position from c._b._s. Yahoo who <hes> ro sports my fancy league dot com fancy tracks fancy football calculator on it takes this one composite of all those things things and give you an average eighty pay then gives you a couple a couple of things like how did you re reach for a guy. Did you really reach for a guy according to what the did did you get some value so looking at my team. I didn't reach anybody. According to the composite eighty p value picks which which i got at least one round after they're supposed to go <hes> russell wilson at the sixty ninth position corey davises eighty nine physician and selling michelle at the ninety second position <hes> and then <hes> the people who i really they really consider steals which is two or more rounds <hes> alshon jeffery emmanuel sanders and roger jones again. I got alshon jeffery and act one nine got sanders at eleven twelve and i got ronald jones at <hes> thirteen too so you know according to fancy pros i did. I did well as far as my my <hes> drafting. According to fancy pros my strongest positions running back you know according to them. Have you know one of the best <unk> running backs in the league paired with my second running back who's top five according to their system so that's really good according to them benches very good. I'm surprised at their stay sam so weak at wide receiver but you know. I think they're just low on idol. Thomas and i don't think they realize the volume that fits is gonna get and then obviously my tight end of course because i picked up doyle he's only one is considered my weakest position and <hes> but you know it is what it is so if we're able to the draft board real quick a couple of things that stuck out to me was <hes> a buddy of mine buddy of ours wasn't able to make the draft and fortunately so apparently his brother was draft form and he just had some weird weird weird pickups there you know aw he went with antonio brown. I and that was the three four five six seven seven pig in the first round and you know you could you can <unk> argue that that's a good pick again antonio brown non-pc. That's in that's in that range. I was talking about before that like you know l. Sixty eight range where you don't wanna be. He's writing smack in the middle of it but you know with kareem hunt and leonard fournette there and melvin gordon there. It's a little tough. Take him a little talk. Take one of those guys as opposed to antonio brown but again. I don't think brothers ever <hes> picnics sleek so maybe that's just one of those things so he went antonio brown. He went on the wrap around <hes>. Let's see who came off the board so after he picked up antonio brown cream hot leonard fournette melvin gordon the andre hawkins davin coke devante freeman now christian mccaffrey sitting out up there and you know according to all the height. He's gonna get three hundred touches or something magical. He picks rob gronkowski in the second. I just don't get. I just don't get todd rob. A gronk is on top sixteen pick in a family that is non p p._r. If if you're in a fourteen team if you're in a sixteen team league pick them up as soon as you can 'cause i feel those these have a top tier guy and i'm trying to get top tier guys many positions cancel. Maybe go early for early for quarterback in those but we're in a ten team. League is a lot of room for improvement. There's a lot of guys that are gonna on waiver wire. There's people that are gonna get injured so going for that early a little crazy <hes> and then wrapped around back to me and julio jones odell and kyun allen had gone so that's why i figured i'd pick up michael thomas <hes> after my michael thomas pick <hes> are the my my buddy. Carmine picked up with shawn mccoy of ads was lend me joe mixing so again if you if you go back through backing us now back in the third round and the same kid it picks up tom brady and the third round when iraj is on the board. I mean come on. It's a little crazy when he wraps back around so now he has a wide receiver a tight end and a quarterback in non charlie doesn't have anybody anybody at running back and remember after his second pick they still had christian christian mccaffrey with shawn mccoy joe mix jordan howard and before he was injured jerick mckinnon. You pick you know so like was was really good idea. They're probably not so now. You need a court urania running back and maybe the value was there in the third round because one two three four five essex on eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen because sixteen running backs had gone so he picks tom brady but again i would have picked up aaron rodgers at that point it then it goes receivers receivers. I pick up fits than anfield travis. Kelsey goes more receivers. Dan he goes to pick up <unk> a a running back and he picks royce freeman now at the time royce. Freeman was never had not been officially named the starter. Lamar miller was on the board. He's gonna be the start of their. I don't know why you wouldn't pick up him out scotland's at a baltimore starter for now <hes> you know even marshawn sean lynch maybe because you haven't picked up running back and you know he's going to. They're going to work them into the ground. Derrick henry was stolen the poor and even if it's time split you never know maybe it's not as much time as you would you think so it was really weird at one of my buddies with his brother drafting and then <hes> you know i think <hes> a couple of guys you know i. I don't think reaching is as bad as people think. I think that if you reach on your bench a little too much gets a little crazy like one of my buddies picked up adrian peterson in the eighth round <hes> you are is he going to get the work the work. Can you be consistent. I'm not sure has he hit a block of his age. Maybe he has <hes> let's see so he went to the third round so let me see who's going in the eighth round so let me see the who was on board <hes> well. Let's see so he took. Adrian peterson is right after college. Hi chris carson went off the board. Jamal williams was off the board carry on johnson's off. Rex burkhead is off <hes>. I'm chris carson had felt him. I don't know if this particular guy would have taken him on but i would take chris carson over peterson and you paint barbara out there and i know that i was talking trash abound before will not necessarily transfer just saying that roy jones seconds probably gonna take starting job but you know if if you know you need to write back it's not a bad a bad call. You know this particular guy he had started with kareem hunt wrapped around <unk> freeman so we had pretty pretty solid solid alad <hes> picks you know he he's also the guy picked up aaron rodgers and maybe aaron air rogers air you pick up seven coleman. They're also we also had in fourth round. Pick in the void around shawn watson kind came off the board would actually came off before era. She had tom brady into shawn watson. Go before aaron rodgers again. That's that's a little crazy. I think my guys my buddy's got a little too cute this year. <hes> you know there's nothing there's nothing to do but i pick up russell wilson and that's you know after somebody picked up drew brees beforehand and my body the commission he <hes> he auto drafted ben rothlisberger for some reason he never got his picking a rothlisberger sitting in the cutest look and picked him fifty seven th overawe aw ben rothlisberger everybody fifty seventh overall ben rothlisberger <hes> so it's it's kind of funny and then yet in the fifty nine th pick i come in. I pick up russell wilson. I was hoping to try and get jimmy grandma on the wraparound and picks the pics to my buddy. Carmine line who had the first pick was out robinson in with the sixtieth and then jimmy grandma and sixty i so i was a little tight because i thought i could get jimmy graham <hes> <hes> in the in the seventh round with the sixty second pick but you know like i said once once i didn't. I was targeting jimmy graham in in this area if i didn't get them i went right to jack doyle at the end. I didn't think i lost anything <hes> overall acquaintance c._b._s. I had like the sex worth worth team again. I don't think that's correct. I think c._v._s. skews it a little more. I think <hes> fancy pros with their aggregate. According to fancy pros my draft raid was a plus ninety. One hundred according to their projected standings just based on points like a rodeo league overall. I would be ranked number one. I had the most points on my starters by fifteen points most points out of my bench by four points together. You know it's it's a big gap but listen. You're league is not one washington draft. You set yourself up to have your optimal team gene in the draft and then worked a waiver wire comes along our waiver wire is worse i so whoever had the whoever whoever has the worst record previously <hes> then when it opens up on wednesday they get i the excuse me dibs on the waiver wire and then got pushed down to the last so you know it is what it is <hes>. We had a great time. Recommend buffalo wild wings. I love the c._b._s. Yes <hes> <hes> fancy app. I love the way they do. The draft like i said i think their grades are a little crazy. I definitely think my team is the best but you know it is. It is my buddy rico. The cart champ got the kiss death this year and according to c._b._s. Had the best i think since you've yes has been doing they've opened up the the what they do for the people who pay for fancy sports because we pay for our leagues we can customize a little bit you know they give us a weekly rundown rundown of league and and a bunch of games and they talked transfer is a little bit then they give the strap analysis based on their their rankings so i think the rankings are just a little bit wack and the author thinks some of their rankings based rankings on ep are not standard so you know that could be an issue <hes> anyway <hes> <hes> that's all. That's all the time we have for now. <hes> thank you so much guys for listening to the joe schmo sports podcast follow us again. We're live live on youtube but we do this podcast.

Alabama-Clemson Recap, Charles Davis Interview

NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

34:14 min | 3 years ago

Alabama-Clemson Recap, Charles Davis Interview

"And now move the sticks with Daniel, Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks what's up everybody. DJ Bucky here on move the sticks. And the college football season has come to a close and buck that was a fireworks show for a Finnish. Yeah. Unbelievable. But this is exactly what you want to see you want to see the two best teams you want to see the best players play their best, and I won't say the Alabama played their best game. But man, I was thoroughly entertained by watching a bunch of guys that we know we will see on Sundays lot NFL players on that field. And I don't want to bury the lead. Here had a one game lead coming into the picks book. All you gotta do is finish you just gotta finish. And I picked Alabama went with Nick Sabin. And and thanks a lot Nick he them. And now we've got can't win for the nine hundred year in a row. Unbelievable. Yeah. I mean, it's just kind of a believable. Go ahead. You ask your head co-head jump on there. You can jump on there and patch yourself on the back there. But you want again you and sell shared the title. Good. It feels good to be a co champion one outright the first two years this year. I co champ would Solly we kind of do a little Nebraska Michigan. I'll say he's Michigan. I'm Nebraska because we know who would have won that game tonight. Ninety seven and overall. It's cool. You know, it's Clemson two and three years, and I'll say this even though I picked Clemson to win that game. None of us all twenty eight point just but up that was that was the supplies for tell the truth. Can't tell the truth. Because no matter who I picked you had to pick the opposite to have a chance to win. If you didn't have to would you have picked Clemson to win the game. Of course, you're full of it. You would have picked Alabama, of course, and writing I Clinton a buck. This was the thought first of all we'll get to the players here in a second. But this was overwriting thought I had we talked about this a little bit off air, man. I'm just watching and I know they're winning. So that a two different. But watching how happy and how much fun and just you want your kid, and you wanna go spend three or four years someplace in watching Clemson and saying, okay, we can play the highest level, and I can have all that fun or go to Alabama where even when you win. It's just it's just tense. I mean, I think what Phil Phil savage is book was what fourth and goal every day. That's the mindset their Alabama. Now, they've they've produced a lot of great NFL players as a young as a seventeen year old kid. You gotta go spend the next three years. And you know, you're going to win it either place. Why would you ever album over? Clemson. That's my question. You know, the funny thing I kind of break this up, and I think he can be broken down into three s fun family and future. You go to clips, and you're gonna have a lot of fun. They're gonna treat you like family and your future is going to be an opportunity to play into prose because you're surrounded by great do's, and they have quite a pipeline. I don't know why you wouldn't want to go to Clemson the way they have it rolling now. And from scouting standpoint. Like, I made this note observation when I looked at them on the field with Alabama. I I believe like there's only handful of teams that are what we call like those premier programs that have the elite guys where scouts are kind of the flocking to wash them. But when I look at Clemson, and I'm looking at the way, they're built I'll feel like in watching that game. They had more explosive athletes in Alabama, and it sounded crazy. To say that out loud. But I felt like Clemson was faster there were more athletic than Alabama. And I think it showed up and some of those plays that they made on the outside. There were kind of scramble tosses that turned into touchdowns the team speed for Clemson to me was a little overwhelming. And it's red that you see that. When you see an Alabama team play, the so you said this you brought up this point. You said there's five teams in college football now, Clemson, Georgia. Bama, Ohio State and Oklahoma. If I'm if I'm I got those right? Maybe LSU you can throw in there. But that's about it though. Yeah. The Irish level on. In terms of in terms of like NFL like like they look like an NFL team when they walk onto the field. Like in terms of the way, their size of stash that what you can take like you're talking about to me. I would say Notre Dame and Oklahoma might both be it might be fun nuts, really a natural. And I know everybody said Oklahoma Georgia, I get that. But I just don't know if they're going to be able to navigate those teams you'd have to navigate because Oklahoma's a lopsided team and really Notre Dame somewhat of a lopsided team more defense than offense. I look at what Clemson and Alabama can do offensively and defensively. I look at what Ohio State and Georgia could do offensively. And defensively. I think those are the four teams have a chance to be excellent. And with loaded with NFL dudes on the line of scrimmage on both sides. And then had the skill talent as well. It might even just be fourteen. Buck. Yeah. I mean, you very well. Maybe right on that. You know, like when you when you think about when we used to go on the road and scout. And we love to go to certain schools, and you stand on the field, and you just spend your time. Wow. I think that is a net. Brought me to another thing that I I looked at. And I say like the team building lesson that I would take from Clemson quarterback office of skill players in D Langas goes because those areas to me this showed up in that game quarterback is elite even though he's a true freshman their skill gas are explosive they're letting and they're big big fast and physical which which will and then on the defensive line. They can just hit you ways and ways of guys I think if you go into Bill a premier program being in college or in the pros, I don't think you can go wrong using that kind of model. So my my formula had told you about the the history of the playoff was if you if you look at the games every single one of our one by the team with the better. Offensive line. Now, Quinton Williams is is I think is the best defense alignment in that game last night. And they've got roquan Davis have got some good players. But I think maybe the collection of talent for Clemson. You could make a case that collection of their defensive line was even was even better than Alabama's. Yeah. I mean, I think so I think out Dexter Lawrence. Yeah. I think the difference. And I came into this thinking that without Dexter. Clemson would be exposed in terms of the inability, and they couldn't really stop the Roman. Alabama rented the turnovers were problematic in big issue. But the F lettuces of Christian Wilkins and some of the other guys in terms of being able to run and chase things down. They were able to Russian. Yeah. Thomas create pressure in and do some things that we really haven't seen people do against Alabama. We see in Georgia, whatever. But I just believe with Clemson and with Alabama Georgia, Ohio State, and maybe like those teams have the collection of elite athletes and players to. To kind of set themselves apart from the rest of the college football world thoughts on the quarterback there in Trevor Lawrence, man. Look, he's everything that we thought he would be obviously you and I had opportunity to watch him couple summers ago when he was in the elite eleven the opening he and Justin feels and I know that this conversation for the next year. So was going to be all about Trevor Lawrence. But I'm just going to urge people don't forget about Justin feels because there are a lot of people that were there. There were two that Justin feels is on par and maybe even better than Trevor Lawrence. We may have to wait a year. So to see him at Ohio State, but I think in what is draft last two Huby twenty twenty one twenty one. Yeah, potentially. We will talk about those two guys being joined at hip. I just think now the way that kids are throwing the ball more in highschool the way, they're playing football year round seven seven and the like we're getting a more developed quarterback than we've ever seen. And I think Trevor Lawrence's ability. To play on a big stage to win a national championship. As a true. Freshman speaks to how the game has changed over the last decade when it comes to development of the young players, and you mentioned seeing these guys highschoolers up there at the opening and Trevor Lawrence. I mean, he was he was outstanding up their book. But I I left that weekend just watching for two days and watch these guys at seven on seven. I not you're not playing with pads on I I left there thinking that Justin feels even better. I mean, that's got to get you fired up. If you're Ohio State to know, you've got that level of talent coming in your direction. I don't think he lost a seven on seven game tournament. Is you know, they're up there playing game after game after game. I don't think Justin feels lost one up. There was throwing it all over the place in can move around. I both these kids are special we've seen it. Now. Trevor Lawrence, I think we'll have states going to see it here pretty quick with this kid to. Oh, absolutely. I think we are going to see it. I think the way that the game has changed in these guys being better prepared to be able to step on the field right away and play is a game changer. And you know, like is funny. We always talk about coaching in Xs and os and the like, but man, I had a coach told me this the other day when I was talking to him on the phone. He said you will never find a hall of fame coach who hasn't coached hall of fame players, meaning that when you want to win national titles, and you want to be a program that fancies himself as the elite, you bet acquire elite players, and I think the difference between the haves and the have not strictly comes down to the personnel. And I know we want to transition here to your conversation that you had with Charles Davis yesterday bought before we get to that. I'm like to hit you with breaking news on here. But we did it on the last time, I guess you will guessing lower. So I've got some more for you here. Because now it's being reported by our in Rappaport that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are focused on hiring Aaron cardinals former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians as their new coach, the interest is mutual negotiations are likely to begin soon in the words of Ian. Here we go. I mean, but I think that's actually a perfect fit it. Here's why believe is a perfect fit for aeriens tourists going. They need to get James going. A lot of the comparisons day. We have for James coming out. Big Ben Rothlisberger who wanted to formative guys around Big Ben Rothlisberger. It was Bruce Arians. Bruce Arians was also around Andrew luck. He is develop quarterbacks particularly dropback quarterbacks in vertical passing game. He does a great job with that. When he looks at the Tampa Bay job offensively. They have weapons already on the outside. They have a playmaker. And Mike Evans have two tight ends in OJ Howard and Cameron break to have another guy that is emerging who's the other little young receiver of state God Pissy Godwin. So they have weapons they just need to get the defense going. And if he comes with who I think he's coming with entries bowls. I just liked the way this situation plays out. And who knows if they can ever get anybody. Can run the ball do some of the things that you'd like to do with the running game. Why can't they just jump back into the mix because this is a team that we've talked about being on the come. I think Bruce as is the right coach effort Jaamus. I think you need a grizzled heart head coach to get into finally play the way that we think that he could play. Our let me ask you a question here there was there was a coach at Arizona named Bruce Arians that had a young rookie running back at a northern Iowa who named David Johnson. If I recall buck, I think he played pretty well in that system. I'm trying to think of somebody maybe with similar skill set that might be agent. Oh, you thinking thinking this guy last year fresh legs Bill going to Tampa say tax. See that could you see that marriage taking place. You know, he does have a way with players that I fit different personalities like he would be a nice fit Kesse ball out the backfield because there's different under the jets. Everybody's kind of said bell end up being jet. I'm telling you I wouldn't sleep on Tampa. Oh, I think I think depending on the coach I think Bruce Arians, I think Bruce Arians. Look he took Honey badge in. They've had a bunch of different personalities in Arizona. He was able to kind of manage the locker room and controlling and get those guys to play the right style. And one thing that we know Bruce Arians like he loves good players, and he'll find a way to put play makes in a situation to make place that would be a really really good fit. So there you go. That's we'll see if that gets done here might be done by the time. You're listening to this. We'll see what happens with the rest of these coaching openings, though, be fascinating to watch. All right. Let's get to your conversation. You had with our good, buddy. Charles davis. There's nobody better in the business. He will be on the call for the eagles and the saints this Sunday, and you had a chance to catch up with them. Just the other day. It is always a good time. When I get to bring on man. I mean, this guy we go way back Charles Davis. A FOX analyst you're actually doing the FOX for forty game. This Sunday the New Orleans Saints in the Philadelphia Eagles CD so much to talk to you about especially when it comes to the league. But how you doing? I'm doing great Bucky. It's always a pleasure to talk with you. And you're right. We go way back the only way never covered you if we played against each other. So I was glad that I missed that timeframe that worked out better for me. We get the chance to interact this way this way. I can I got a chance to try to keep up the way what they play. Play you play modest. But one thing that I do know you always keep up with what's going on in the league and coming off that first weekend Welker weekend of games. A couple of things stood out to me defense is standing out because they're keeping points down. And then quarterback experienced really, really matters. What did you see when you look at last weekend's games? Well, I'm gonna get can I stay with what you brought up. I because I think you an IRA of similar mindset right now when season was going on obviously explore offenses were exploding like crazy. And that's all we talked about. Right. And and I think our Nate. Dear was the Rams chief game, right? That Monday night game and everybody in the leaves. Oh, my God these defenses have no shot anymore. And then I thought, and I don't know what you thought I'm eager to get get your you get what you what you believe about this. I thought that the defense is get back into the game in the New Orleans. Dallas Thursday night game. You have thirteen. Ten I thought that that you know, the pendulum swinging so far offense eternally. And then when Dallas did what they did to hold New Orleans to ten even though Dallas didn't even score in the second half and won the ball game. And then we start seeing more and more of those games. And you've been around the league you played in the league. You you've been a scout. In the league. Isn't it? Interesting every year when we get to play off time. I don't care. What sport we're talking about defense kicks in right hockey scoring goes down in the playoff basketball scoring goes down in the playoffs. I think football scoring is no different because people scout you to with an inch of your life. You know, every possession is so critical. I think people take extra time that takes a little bit of time on the clock out of the game right on down the line. And then to your point about the quarterbacking. I talked in the last two three weeks. I talked to different general managers at one player personnel director in the league Indus. Pendant of each other. I asked him all the same question. What scares you most about your team heading into the playoffs? Or what scares you the most? When you get into the playoffs, and they all said the same thing number one. What's our health? Which is you know is paramount. But number two who's playing quarterback for the other team. He because that's where it all begins and ends for them. And all of them said the same thing. I don't care how good the young quarterbacks. Are if it's a veteran who's a good player. He scares me more playoff time until the young kid proves himself. And so that's what my homes has to go through this year. Right. Goth got caught in it last year. Didn't he Bucky? Yup. I mean that that first game. It wasn't all on him. I felt like the Rams is the team looked up and went whoa. Whoa. Whoa. What is this and Atlanta had been there and got them? So I just wanted to kind of stay with your vein 'cause I thought it was very important. And you and I are sharing a similar thoughts. You know, as you say that like, you're absolute. Absolutely right as the tipping point being the Cowboys because I've always been a believer. And I've talked to many coaches who believe this the real football stores after thanksgiving. You probably hit about the ninth or tenth game of the season. Dependencies are beginning to kind of show themselves and defensive coordinators. We can talk about offensive wizardry and gurus defensive coordinators of smart. They've made a judgment and then to your second point about the quarterbacks. I absolutely believe that the experience matters in the playoffs. You have been around the game long enough you've called playoff games. It's a little different in the playoffs into into regular season. Things happened a little faster. It's a little more physical and the consequences of poor decisions matter more experienced quarterbacks understand it, and they kind of settle in young quarterbacks. It takes about a half for them to kinda get into that that mind frame. And I think the game that you're calling where we have now Nick foles taking on the New Orleans Saints. What can we make about the Nick foles phenomenon you really? It is one of the better things that we've seen in a while in terms of all of us trying to analyze what does it truly mean? Because I don't know that there's one answer that solves it all and with Nick foles, if certainly appears to me that the smaller doses in the play offs of Nick foles are different than when you get the full dose of nickels nickels and what I mean by that is he had the one great year with Philadelphia twenty seven touchdown to interception. And you know, the irony is if I'm using the word ironic correctly. I hope I am guess guess we lost two in the playoffs that year who's raising the saints and at home. Chip Kelly's offense. And you remember he had that incredible year. He set the record. He did all the things that he did. But remember the other opportunities Nick foles had to be a starter in the league. Yeah. You didn't walk away saying that's my quarterback for the next five to ten years. Did you you always like, okay? Who else do we have? And even the start of this year the sense. I get I don't know what you what you heard. But what I got out of Philadelphia's that they own they were kinda hoping they could go a little bit longer before they brought Carson Wentz back. Yeah. Yeah. And it got to the point where did where they felt like they kind of had to bring him back. Didn't they? And here we are again the second year in a row over fold has turned it around. And there's Carson Wentz onto smile on the sideline at the be thinking to himself again a second year like this. And and off we go but his experience in the playoffs helped him this year. Breeze of obviously has experiences won the Super Bowl. I thought to your point that yesterday in that yesterday. But on Sunday we saw what your point was about young quarterbacks old quarterback. It'd be better quarterback Philip rivers. Lamar Jackson it kinda show. It showed up that day. Didn't it when the mar- finally got his legs under he played pretty well down the stretch. But throughout Philip rivers did enough could make things go. Well, and never made the big mistake against a very good defense. No interceptions. No turnovers that was huge in. Chargers win. You know, that that is the big thing is nuts. Necessarily that you have to win the game. You can't go lose the game. And you brought up the Nick foles. Carson Wentz debate is one thing that I'm wondering if this continues to play out is it better have the winning quarterback in a Nick foles or the franchise quarterback Carson Wentz because we could be looking at a situation where Nick foles goes to the championship game or even to a Super Bowl. We have seen him win. When we said that the competition and the pressure is at his peak. You have never seen Carson wins. Do that. How do you hitch who do you hit your wagon to even though we know that Carson Wentz is a better player? This other guy has been a winner. And he knows interesting about that Bucky is that if we if you and I are having this conversation last year, I'm not going to speak for you. I'll throw mine out there and you follow if that's okay. I would've said unequivocally give me went. That's my franchise quarterback. He was. Playing at a an all pro level MVP level when he got hurt last year. And I don't care how well full plays in shorts short stint. Even if we win a Super Bowl. And they did I want wins for the long haul. I've invested in him. He's a better player overall. And I've seen foles ride the rollercoaster. Now, we're doing two years in a row. Let's say we do what you said. And and they get they get, you know, the possibility that they get to the Super Bowl heck win it whatever just getting there will be more than enough which way do you go because one of the things I just looked up and I just had it sent to me. And it was very interesting to put it mildly. Okay. You gotta love this one. Nick foles. Right in this season now with Carson with with excuse me with alshon Jeffery because you can see the connection is there. I believe he is like twenty three of twenty seven throwing alshon Jeffery down the stretch in the season. And I don't think that we ever saw went and Jeffrey make that same connection. We saw Winston earth yet. But not Winston Jeffrey. So it's a very interesting deal. How certain quarterback certain receivers get together, they find it. And they do it. I still think in the long haul. I my money is on Carson Wentz. But your locker room may very well fake guys. We've got a two Super Bowls. You know, how can how can we replace it? And that's where it's going to be very interesting yet is very fascinating off-season the other side, the New Orleans Saints don't have that kind of situation with drew Brees. But what is interesting you didn't older quarterback? They in the postseason. Everyone is ready to come to punch their ticket to the Super Bowl because they're playing at home. What are some of the issues that you see when you've been able to study to New Orleans Saints? Well, I think they've got to get make sure they're off offense of line healthy lucky 'cause down the stretch. I thought I thought during the middle of the season I had them at Cincinnati. And I thought their offensive line was functioning the best in in pro football, Armstead left tackle, ramczyk it, right? Tackle you could lead Pete inside at left guard. You know, you get oh, God pufus anarchy Unger. Max older, you think that the pivot, you know, they were they were strong warford plan right guard. And you know, he just moves people especially in the run game. And they were functioning so. Well. But they've taken some dings down the stretch and had to you know, be a little bit makeshift. If they've got all their guys up in healthy that'll be huge for breeze because then you can do whatever you want offense of -ly, you know, 'cause Ingram they got going about midseason Cincinnati game. Camaro, you know, what he does scares the heck out of people the other part I with throw in there is as you pointed out defensive coordinators are going to do their best to take away. What you do really? Well, so he's gonna step up when they go ahead and double and triple Mike Thomas who's going to be the other receivers that make it happen. They draft trae Kwan Smith out of UCF. I don't know that he caught thirty balls all year. You know, Keith Kirkwood was an contracted free agent. They they activated midseason he's actually played fairly well for them. But if he going to be the guy to take the pressure off, you know, who who's going to be that other receiver to help out Mike Thomas, so that he doesn't have everyone rotating him and breeze. Having to throw into double in trip. Coverage. Yeah. It's a fascinating game. It's one wonder wise is also a little incentive motivation to eagles players are saying that the saints ran up to score the last meeting, and so it should be. It should be something that is fun to watch one thing that we will watch obviously as we continue to move down to roading and fast forward to the common and the draft, and we'll work together obviously own path to the draft quarterbacks in this class. And we just got the announcement recently Dwayne Haskins the quarterback from Ohio State is foregoing his last season to enter the league. Have you had it opportunity look at Ohio State, standout? And what are your thoughts? Bucky? I think he's the best looking pro prospect coming out this year of the quarterback position. I was waiting for his official announcement because you know, we work at NFL network. We gotta be very careful about underclass. But now that he's made the announcement in announces attention. I think we're okay to actually talk about it. Right. Yep. So I think he's the best looking pro prospect. And I thought that when I watched during the season, you know, he is a black quarterback. And the only reason I bring that up is we often get the official as soon as you hear your black quarterback. The next thing you read in analysis, boys. He asked let it he. Well, he's an athlete, but he his legs are the least amount lease things going to scare you. But he moves well with pocket presence. He can climb the pocket. Well, he slides well in the pocket, he does all of those things, but he's going to beat you with his, arm and his mind. I before he beat you with his legs. He looks like the prototypical old school NFL quarterback. But you have to look at the prism of two thousand eighteen meaning most of his games from gun right in the old days. We about under center this. Well, a lot of the proteins a plan from gun. So it's not the same issue. It was before the Bucky to me he steps. Back there. He stands in that pocket. He makes his movement from that pocket. He read the surveys, he scanned. He goes through his progressions all the terms you want. And then he is accurate throwing the football. I mean that balls in the places supposed to be not just hitting a receiver. You know people. Forget Tim Tiba was like a sixty five percent thrower in college. But you can tell people better than I can the windows are wide open in college because receivers are usually better. Yep. And the defensive backs that they're playing against in the NFL that flattens out. So you're accuracy really comes into play this kid. I think is is that guy to me he ascends the top of that quarterback class. And the giants were sitting there at number six. They may have to make a move up to make sure no one else jumps up there. Because to me. He's a perfect fit is alive. Manning's era parent draft him. He doesn't have to play next year you play manning one more year memories of redshirt sophomore. And then. Can go ahead and take over because I think the other guys whoever you wanna bring up there's some good prospects in there. But to me Haskins looks like the number one guy as I'm starting this process. A completely agree nothing. If anyone watched him perform the Rose Bowl you saw him get off to a hot start. You can see him. Check all the boxes in terms of size on talent poise pocket presence ability to really use all of the field. I think the biggest thing that he is going to have to overcome is going to be the lack of experience when people talk about it being a one year starter. Obviously we saw Mr. Bisky go number two overall couple of seasons ago with only thirteen collegiate starts it'd be a similar conversation when we began to come to dig into Haskins. But the thing that we do know he is certainly talented with our STAN. No doubt. And you're right about that with the Trubisky comparison because one year starter what really impressed me about half Skains, even though he was it one year starter. Do you remember two years ago? The Michigan game you hit a chance to jump in. And he had to jump in 'cause AT Barrett with her kids showed me a lot that day because you know, without rivalries like, and, you know, the weight of the world that's on you and state Michigan game and this kid came in and handled it, and I thought Hm who is this guy. And remember he beat out Joe borough who just threw for three ninety four and four again. Yes, it was a very talented very fast football team, and I didn't expect out of borough. I don't know about you. But expect ever to see him go three ninety four and four minutes, but still that's who has to beat down borough transferred. LSU hate Martell when not prospects in the nation is at Ohio State. And they gave him a couple of gimmick. Plays a game. But he was never close to be not Haskins this kid's talented and the real deal. And I just don't know if we can stick to the Bill Parcells, you know, twenty six starts three starter. I don't know. We can stay there anymore because the game's not like that. Yeah. The the game is certainly changed and speaking of change cliff Kingsbury, former head coach of Texas Tech the current office coordinator for USC is being interviewed by a couple of teams as a potential hit coach. What are your thoughts on him? Especially after he failed at Texas Tech in the big will. Yeah, you know, Bucky it feels to me forces the wrong word, but it feels to me like those who are hipped on getting the next offensive genius feel like I can plug in a head coach in surround him with the other people as long as I'm getting that often to vacuuming it'd be much more comfortable with with clip Kingsbury as. In OC in the NFL as opposed to being a head coach only because he's going to walk through that door. And remember he's not walking in and talking eighteen to twenty two year olds you were in those locker rooms that person walks through that door matters, doesn't it? You know, we we act like it's just the video game Madden and Kenny draw plays. He's got a command the locker room and command respect both sides of the ball guys. From twenty two years old all the way to forty It's got it's gotta be the deal. And I just don't know that I it again, it feels like, hey, we can do it with. He's offense of guy we can make this thing work. I don't know if it's the best situation 'cause I hear that about all these college coaches in some of them can make the jump some of them. It feels like I'm just trading for the offense like Lincoln, Riley it Oklahoma. I think Lincoln Riley made the best movie could make which state Oklahoma absolute down the road could very well be an NFL coach, I think at this stage of his career he was smart enough to know himself and stay Pat FitzGerald a defensive guy. Maybe he could command it. I think that, you know, overall, probably, but I think he's a college coach through and through. Yeah. I think he understood that about himself, and he stayed others may wanna make that mistake if you're clip kings brain someone offered you a job. Why would you say, no? But to me offensively. I would want him head coach. I'd be skeptical about that at this stage. Yeah, I think is fascinated this off season is going to be just so interesting to watch from head coach coaches going forward to what we see when a twenty nineteen class reveals itself and the east-west at the senior bowl at the combine it into the draft. I can't wait to do more and more stuff with you. Thanks so much for coming on. And joining us today CD. Hey, thanks for having me Bucky. I can't wait to do the same to pick in your brain is always on the learn these guys trying to get right? But it's always fun to get started on that process. Isn't it?
