Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
Fresh update on "alvin kamara" discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM Show
"Thomas is a big reason he's not taken deep shots the last few years towards the end of the season. Drew Brees has not played his best football. You remember the NFC championship game through that pick last year was dreadful up against the Vikings and so far this year. Even in their victory against the Bucks. It was not inspiring performance, played very poorly against the Raiders and played poorly last night, even though he threw for three touchdowns passes. Rodgers and Breeze working with very similar circumstances. Both that very good running backs I would take Amara over Aaron Jones and both were without They're top wide receivers Davante Adams in playing the game of Michael Thomas and look out. Roger's, led his team to victory and was the most impressive offensive player and found a way to make out Lazard go for over 100 yards. And then you had Jew Breeze who he wasn't. Their best offensive player was Alvin Kamara Nice job running the football and also catching the football, too. So Roger's elevated his team while Bree's did not last night. I asked me the question..
Is Drew Brees no longer the elite quarterback of the past
"Think it's time to sound the alarms on drew brees who was uncharacteristically erratic with his accuracy yesterday on top of of the week one game where he couldn't move the ball it's definitely too bad back to back weeks for drew brees. But I think this week them not having Michael Thomas out there I mean Alvin Kamara he's still look good but obviously, they need more than just him. He can't just be the Alvin Kamara show out there. So drew brees I. Think. Yeah. You have to be a little concerned at this that we're not seeing what we should be seeing out of him because Derek Carr put up the numbers that drew brees should have last night. It's another game where you know you look at breeze his average depth target is just over five yards, the vast majority, and this was obviously true with Michael Thomas to the vast majority of yardage that he's gaining is coming after the catch it's a different type of quarterback that they have to play around. Like Luke are my son, it became a saints fan a year ago, and my concern was like, well, you kind of jumped on this one a little late in the game had you been born earlier that might have been more profitable for you but he asked last night like is drew brees look so sad and I thought like like on a micro right like on a micro level it's because you're losing to the raiders on Monday night football and you're frustrated but like on a Matra level like the something in the is a breeze. Through me down the stretch like you can kind of get in the is well, you've seen this with Peyton manning to like in that last year and. First of all small sample size. Let's see what happens the true breeze but there are concerning distressing signals out there were seen it on the field and I thought that there was a look in the eyes of drew brees last night that sort of new something's changed here. It's not the end, but something's changed and heap maybe shares a little bit of the concern that we share because he had. You did and he. Does face. It makes me think about retirement. Remember he almost consider retirement. And players always say like once you think about it you're you're already you're already there. What did you see colleen last night? No. The same thing that's US did there was one shot in particular of through breezes face that he just you could see it was written all over his face. It was just pure dejection I. Guess to like He. He looked so sad in the moment time for that Viking funeral just put him on the wooden rafts now and push them out into the Gulf of Mexico start firing those arrows Taylor swift. They've got Winston. I Love Patras tweet where he said, we're like four weeks away from breeze coming down with a mysterious injury and Winston getting a little bit of a test drive. I mean listen that would be wild and I. Think our boy that boy wolf the number one saints fan on. Twitter pointed out that Winston had killer training camp, and and you know we also have, of course chastened Tatum Hill the twenty one, million dollar man who really has not been involved the offense too much through two weeks. Sean Payton is a guy that is if they continue to struggle you imagine it's going to be hard for him not to think about mixing things up or perhaps making a big change, but it still thinks I still feels a little premature especially the Michael Thomas. Out. Emmanuel Sanders had had a bad game yesterday. He's obviously not his straight he's in the. Chakwal Smith. IS THEIR NUMBER ONE RECEIVER So a lot of the states have a lot of work to do both in strategy and play and discipline. And now they got the packers. So that's going to be a games. Look forward to
Fresh "Alvin Kamara" from Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Going to say good thing you didn't catch you have to burn a timeout but the not see Alvin Kamara yesterday catch a ball break four tackles get into the end zone. You don't even have to look at Alvin Kamara let me. So you're cedrick Wilson again earlier on in the game. On target. What he does with it now it's early on in the game that Prescott puts US ball on target onto money. Well, no this is another play with a four minute Mark Levin. That Prescott Mrs Tight end just hit the head hit the and maybe you get a touchdown that drive instead of settling for field goal. My issue here is very simple. That Prescott has to be great enough to overcome the the other opticals in the game that Prescott he only got sacked twice. Four Times don't talk to me about the fact that the cowboys offensive line couldn't hold hitter. No Album Smith you know the cowboys defensive end leads the NFL in sack. said. So Russell Wilson was also running for his life. Now on that last possession third three Russell Wilson does a touchdown pass sure he had time but Russell, Wilson's also running for his life. So the fact of the matter is that Prescott is very good. Very. Good quarterback that Prescott is not an elite quarterback Oh, and if you want to win super bowls, you have to be elite. That's what we see even more sellers and this is my second lap as where I'm. Even even a super bowls. The team with the better quarterback wins the game outside of the seahawks beating the broncos twenty thirteen year and outside of the panthers beating the Bronco. Outside of the panthers losing to the broncos. Black, your brow. I'll put Hito you and I didn't even. I'm not even into my personality, which is my struggling I'm in my Dallas's lane, which is your lane. Ready you wit. It's amazing that I asked my God my co-host. What's the metric to tell me that the better quarterbacks one yesterday? He says the eyeball test that's a metric.
Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.

"And you saw them not having Tyron Smith out there as well. That was just the start the game. How did the game and? A fifth round from Seattle getting the sack we're Taiwan Smith would've been interesting how about Ezekiel Elliott My guys seeking. Off to his worse start in his young career in terms of a three game stretch in terms of not giving a balanced to this office that Dak Prescott is now walking around looking at saying, where's my help now receiving cores dependent on Dak Prescott. So I keep them together in tandem. But when you talk about the office salon and all the issues they had and how poor they are no balance in running game. That Prescott is going to do too much as we use this excuse for Carson. Winston others who struggle when you're trying to do too much. You may make a turnover to you may have an issue. That's the only thing that I could poke a hole that were deck yesterday going on a row against the front running mvp you are in a last possession last second game once again, only because debt Chris was on the field even though deck and play his perfect game here's what I will say to that and and I don't think that I'm not gonNA provide injuries as an excuse, injuries can be an explanation I got I. Don't want to hear about the cowboys offense. Eagles are maligned the dying malign, the rescue, the Washington football team excuse me they have a head coach who's going to one of the toughest battles right now and battling cancer and everybody is going through some things. So we can't even talk about injuries but let's nitpick because that's what you have to do in the game of football right? If Russell Wilson were the quarterback for the cowboys when the cowboys were down twenty eight to thirty. Remember fourth quarter cowboys down eight to thirty. Russell Wilson more than likely would have gone down then scored a touchdown, not a field goal, but we have to nitpick. Big. Time money. So you're going to have to get big time critique. Three seconds left in the game and I'M GONNA show. You ought to clip because Troy Aikman said it's a good thing. He didn't catch this ball yet, Prescott? Wilson Twenty seconds left in the game. If the ball is on target without ahead of them, who knows what would have happened we don't know because it wasn't now because the ball was high troy Aikman is going to say good thing you didn't catch you have to burn a timeout but the not see Alvin Kamara yesterday catch a ball break four tackles get into the end zone. You don't even have to look at Alvin Kamara let me. So you're cedrick Wilson.
"alvin kamara" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Let's move onto Alvin Kamara who who was back at Saints Cam Today after being MIA since Friday his absence led to speculation of a contract dispute which led to reports that the saints were. Trading Kamara reportedly had A. Nice talk with Sean Payton to clear the air. The two sides will keep working towards long term deal which would make drew brees happy since there's been talk that this could be drew brees US last chance at another super bowl before he retired Lavar back with but Marcellus estimate meat is to the saints over two degrees to make Alvin. Kamara had no data ot drew brees if you look at this. Situation. Drew brees find himself and right now hadn't a fight to Fennell. Even get his contract to your fifty million dollars despite being an MVP candidate and drew brees. Let's you know that. No one's rushing him out the door, but they know where the door is in this situation this is obviously he's supposed to be his last year and drew brees is a tremendous person and obviously amazing quarterback but. Out of the Chimera is interesting he needs to focus in on himself. Andrew focused on himself. Drew brees has to seventeen million dollar back. Don't forget and another backup who was a starting quarterback last year through for five yards. So it's not like they're sitting there saying if drew brees is not there that they still can't go forward and Albuquerque mayor has to realize the same thing. This is a guy that they're still question marks about his. Gain his durability and his game. Let's talk about how never thousand rushing yards you can say, oh, he's a receiving running back as well. Eighty one catches every single year. Yeah. But the yards, every single year have decrease fewer every single year the you could talk about the durability and never starting sixteen games are not always available for this team. So that's why he's reportedly now in camp and trying to work through this negotiation I. Think they don't. Want them at a certain price and then it's still a little bit of approve it moment in that deal. There's GonNa be some prove it space because the Cabrera still has some questions to answer the problem with what you said. Marcellus. Says you talked about want it's not about what the saints want for your breeze. It's about what the saints need and the Saints Need Alvin Kamara. If they want to win a super bowl drew brees, we know that his arm is being held together by duct tape, phenomenal duct tape but it's being held together by duct tape. Think about three years ago. Minnesota Miracle The saints were knocking on the door two years ago saints got ripped off by a bad call. Then last year you lose overtime in a playoff, they haven't been knocking. On the door of a super bowl but yet, they still haven't been able to kick that thing. Drew brees is one two years away from calling game from a booth instead of calling them from behind center. So if they want to win this thing, you don't just drew brees you yourself as an organization because we're riddle me this and the event you're gonNA Trade Kamara for a first round pick a second round pick by the time that pit can contribute drew brees and going to be on the field. So bump trading Kamara for any future value when you have president needs the saints not only over to drew brees more importantly, they owe it to themselves because if you want to win the road to success is paved to Alvin. Kamara. Trying to extend on that point. If they if they're owing anything, they're gonNA owe it to doing what's best for the organization and where we're at right now currently in terms of looking at drew brees and what he brings to the table, they are planning all what what the next steps are. Post Post drew brees. They've already been doing net as you think about what's taking place with running backs. Yes. Kamara better. Say that he had a great conversation with tate and he better say that he feels good about what's going on look at what's taking place Leonard for net is one of the most elite backs in the game an amazing running back. Just released. Released your they're saying he may only command one million dollars on the open market. Be careful what you do be careful what you wish for be careful what you hope for because sometimes that. Could turn out to be a trick and. When you look at Comoran his situation is better for him to get into camp and get on the roster and gets upside that both sides can live with because I. Don't think they owe it to drew brees and they certainly aren't going to look at Albany CEO at elm either. Yeah, this is interesting man looking at brees obviously, I play with my I them I snapped NFL. He was drafted to the San Diego chargers when I was there and. Then first year one touchdown no interceptions didn't really get on the field next year they starts the whole year seventeen down sixteen intercepts trying to figure it out like I don't know magic if social media was around would you brees was starting off like this and how they would tried to tear them apart third year eleven touchdowns fifteen. You start to say this is going south. This is going the wrong direction at his third year, and then they draft the Philip rivers remember that and up boy goes out there twenty seven to style seven. Perceptions give franchise and they sit there with two quarterbacks and then drew brees tear under. His label off the bone off the torso in week seventeen bad breaks for Jew breeze sizes extension Payton suspended. One year unreal two,.
Fresh update on "alvin kamara" discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"You can trade a bench player for AJ Brown I'm all about it. Yeah I think like Davis has been okay but. He's I don't think he's really a threat to AJ Brown The. Titans of actually it's been a ton of deep stuff for Ryan Tannehill, they're they're really relying very little on the short game, and so that's GonNa Benefit Aj. Brown when he comes back and assuming he can get back to something like full speed relatively soon. I think he'll be. That number two wide receiver that we were hoping for. From dos are any eagles players not named miles sanders a star fantasy player moving forward. Yes exactly start jinx one, hundred percent Yep. Muzakir it's he's got seven to ten targets in every game Dallas Goddard's out. Don't know about the Sean, Jacks. So we're going to definitely start earth wind deficit Mile Sanders the question is are you going to have any faith in Al Sean Jeffrey? Let's say he plays week four. Would you have faith in starting at Sean? Jeffrey No? I think you're hoping for a four for fifty one game. You score a touchdown. It's great. He kind of is the Dallas until Dallas scattered comes back. So yeah, it's a pretty low upside flex play. I think he can be a high upside play eventually I also. You know even in the eagles offense has been a very good fantasy player in the past. But. You need to see it I before I think even start. Given the nature of the injury. Yeah. As far as whence goes the offense in General San Francisco Pittsburgh in Baltimore, or their next three opponents that's not probably not going to be easy although maybe they can test the San Francisco defense in ways that the giants can't. And then after that, though checkout week seven through twelve giants, Dallas by. GIANTS CLEVELAND SEATTLE. There appear to be four, maybe five matchups for the passing game there. It's three weeks from now. You don't have to do anything about it now, but just keep how many quarterbacks have actually looked worse than Carson Wentz this season. About, not necessarily about him, but it could be but he's playing horribly right now he needs to play a lot better now i. For the there could be more production there for Kurtz if Goddard's back at that point. He just they've got a soft spot on he looks you are looking at wide receiver core of a lot of guys alshon maybe rigors back maybe the Shawn's back maybe greg to stepped up. So I wouldn't pick up alshon necessarily right now because of it but if you have an empty spot yeah, I'm taking him over a random guy who is just like a low end rb I would take him over like Andy Isabella. Yeah. would you take him over Justin Jefferson? Jefferson as the top waiver, our target for made a big mistake yesterday and I need to correct it I'm actually meant to correct the top of the made another week I had the vikings titans game and I copied and pasted the titans schedule onto just Jefferson schedule and the titans next two games or Pittsburgh and Buffalo Jefferson's next two games are Houston and Seattle and Atlanta. So Houston actually hasn't been that bad against wide receivers, Seattle and Atlanta certainly have but Jefferson schedules much more favorable than I thought it was and I am sorry about that was a stupid mistake I made. Just throw the ball more ideas like kirk cousins has seventy one pass attempts and they've given up their seventy eight pass attempts, their Owen three and they've given up one hundred, one points. If you've given up more points than you have pass attempts doing something incredibly there's a reason for it though because they had the ball for five minutes each of the first two games. So I don't know about yesterday the why did you only saw? Passes there. That's because before the game. Gary. Kubiak said, we need to run the ball more. They almost one game that and they did run the ball really well and. I don't think he was as bad as I saw headline like cousins collapse isn't one of the interceptions was. Like Adam feeling fell down, had the ball popped up and into the defenders. Hands so yeah. Like. He's He's a relatively efficient quarterback who makes a decent amount of deep shots in the play Action Game I. Think just in Jefferson and feeling, Kim it can be a Steph Stefan digs. Adam Phelan situation. If they start throwing the ball thirty, four times a game which wouldn't even really be that much. Yeah. Well, I'll tell you catch more balls. Thousand cookie is five catches. I think eight catches maybe in three games. All right. Final question in our five big topics comes from philly special. Who would you take number one overall fantasy football started today. Ezekiel. Elliott. Alvin Kamara. Okay. I thought I knew Chris Alvin Kamara. I, it's between those two. Guys. Thomas was for sure out for another four or five weeks. It's Kamera because I think chimeras usage in the passing game is bound to go down compared to the last two weeks and I think Elliot will continue to be used in the past game and Fifty eight carries already three weeks is just typical Ezekiel, Elliott I think nothing has changed my outlook for either of these guys for the season. They've both Kinda shown what I'm expected but Camara has done better because of no Michael Thomas Thomas is coming back. Yeah. But Elliott has really benefited from. Some circumstances that I don't think are really going to continue like Dave Dave attempted. Let's see one hundred and forty five pass attemps this season. That would be. Presumably something close to a record. Well, Hey then then maybe you should take Russell Wilson over Prescott because. Seven hundred seventy, three pass attempts I earlier. You're used to your advantage earlier Chris. Yeah. But that's that's also. GonNa come down, but he's still gonNA throw the ball lot more than Russell. Wilson. But the cowboys do run the fastest offense in the NFL. They are just like sprinting to the line to get more playoff, which makes sense when you've got an offense with as many options as they do that, you want to get as many opportunities as you can. But. Ezekiel Elliott's on pace for. One hundred and twenty-five targets or something like that even in two thousand and eighteen when he was really good. Pass catcher. He wasn't close. Okay Alvin Kamera's on pace for a hundred and sixty six targets or something like that. Yeah. I mean he's not going to get there but. One hundred and thirty is a realistic outcome for Alvin. Kamara thing. I don't think carries are going to be anywhere near Zeke right but. Targets are more. Soluble. and. That's going to score more touchdowns because Kamara. Camara has been a touchdown machine other than last year, but Zeke's getting one yard touchdown runs cameras getting fifty yard touchdown catches. Once what's more sustainable here? It is close. I think I'd take Kamerhe NPR and I take. A non or or half, but I do think it's close Chris and you need to you need to apologize to everyone for saying it wasn't close. That's what I think I don't NPR especially I don't think it's close I think I think Alvin Kamara is. I mean just think he's a better player. THAN EZEKIEL ELLIOTT I don't know if that's like. Chris? Cosworth. Because Collingsworth said he's the best running back in football. Now I mean I I I don't think that's unreasonable. and. He was outrageously efficient before his injury last season. That was basically there was like a a marker that you can draw on his career between Alvin Kamara fantasy God and mere mortal, and now he's there's no guarantee he will accept seeks of health seeks a fantasy got every year. Yeah Yeah. That's fair. That's Fine I do think Alvin Kamera's going to get more than that Susan. He usually does who's the third pick. I. Think Monday Dalvin. Cook they're all go cook. Yeah, Aaron Jones would be up there. Boy The shines off Josh Jacobs a little bit Let's see what Clyde ever dealer does.
Final 53-man roster projections for all 32 NFL teams
"We're to get into the fifty three man roster. So today, we're going to make some projections I did a roster projection heading into training camp was on July twenty seven I had Jalen Hurd making the team I had Sean Coleman making the team. I had a few other players that they're just not going to make the team for whatever reason. So we're going to do that again today after trying to cap after all the news after everything we've seen and read and it will let's just compare to see what's changed since. So start with the first things first quarterback, Jimmy, Garoppolo, nick, mullins, CJ, Beathard I think they all make the roster I. Don't think that that's going to be very you know very controversial. It should be. I mean yeah. I I. Agree I all three of them making the roster as well. Especially, this season with Cova did I imagine that most teams will try to carry three quarterbacks if they can especially just given you know you never know. What happens if Garoppolo or mullins or you know they were to test positive or whatever the case is right and they were mistime than having Beth who understands the system? He's not great by any means just having them in the building is going to be advantage. Advantageous this season. I made this comment to someone else earlier Beth. `Red to George Kettle is Kinda of like you know James Jones or Mike Miller was. and. Lebron he's like teams back in the day. He used to have like those guys like travel with him. I think CJ beathard and George kind of like that George must have somewhere in his contract that Caesar method must be on the roster wherever he is. Those our buddy buddy but jokes, apart I I think all three of them will will make the team. So that's funny. You say that because Caitlin Beth one throwing to kill this off season for the most part it wasn't. Garoppolo. So maybe there is this weird clause in the contract right? I mean I feel like I could make a stronger argument where you carry two quarterbacks as opposed to three just playing the odds last year I can understand it as you know Garoppolo is coming off an injury. So you want to just protect your quarterback you WanNa make sure that you know united last minute fishing for a quarterback but you know he's out there he looks comfortable. No knee brace. In just in this situation I just can't understand a situation where. What are the odds that your third quarterback plays a snap in the regular season game just play the is I imagine that's less than ten percent very, very low at imagine. Right if we're going to do that, yet are the likelihood of a quarterback testing positive for having that whole situation happened shared night. There's a possibility that can happen without. It'd be a risk that I'd be willing to take, and I would much rather have you know a position player as opposed to you know a third string quarterback that major. May Not like the is that he throws a pass on likely and he's not going to help you in special teams or anything but that's I mean that's a Shanahan's ways and I don't see that changing I. Wonder if that will change you know this year with mullins and method both moans is a restricted free agent, right? Yeah. MULLENS will be back. He's restricted free agent. CJ BEATHARD is directed So hopefully, this is the last we've seen of method. CONHAM. I. Hope they don't some deal but Yeah it's tough. Especially, you know when you're having. Debates over other positions trying to like squeeze some other guy and you've got who's affected taking roster spot and like you mentioned, what are the odds that he plays right? but just given. Kyle and where they draft method and what they're trying to do I think they're gonNA, they're gonNA keep him on the roster rather than just swallow their pride and cut him. So both said before the pod before we hit record, this is what we think is going to happen not necessarily what we would do if you were in charge fifty, three man roster so.

"alvin kamara" Discussed on First Things First
"Typically, this still some stiffness in that achilles. That's what I would try to attack teams are gonna try to pick and roll boogie to death and see how well he can move. But I thought the point you made about him earlier in the week which is when Steph came back from his groin injury. They made sure they made a concerted effort. Let's get step back on track that he was pre injury. When clay was in a slump, they made a concerted effort to get him involved with Do you. you expect him do something similar with boogie make him feel at home? Yeah. They wanna see that bomb. Go through the bucket and get him. A couple of good looks back to the NFL now, Marcus Peters made some headlines after the saints Rams matchup sank, quote, he and Sean Payton, we'll have a nice bowl of Gumbo together. The teams matched up again both Peters and Payton said there Gumbo related tiff is now behind them Nick who's going to have the last laugh in this one. I think the saints should win the game which would give Peyton the last lap. But it should be noted. Peter's into Lee both got hurt early in the year to leave when on the shelf Peters played through it those first ten weeks when he's playing through the injury. He played really poorly since he's been healthy from week ten to now his allowing pass rate and around sixty four like he looks like the old Merck is Peter's again. So they didn't get a healthy Marcus Peters in the first matchup. They're getting one in this match, and they're going to have to leave. So both of them on the field either. Lease gives that secondary of the Rams a little bit of an edge. Saints can't be one dementia. They can't to Michael Thomas twenty times, they're not be able to get teddy gin and others involved. Either this one the great matchup. So we're going to see this weekend saints. Why receivers verse Rams second touchdown, right? There is the last touchdown pass Marcus Peters has allowed this season. Yeah. But that interview won't be as last spicy finally the same type powered offense facing off against the Rams defense and dumb consumers said the Rams are focused on stopping saints elite backfield of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. Who's backfield is more important on Sunday the saints or the Rams will Nick brings up a point as far as Jerry goal in this quarterback before quarterbacks. Even though I believe he's got good throwing talent. And he's got a very good arm. Great releasing great timing. He's got the lease town of all before quarterback. So you can't run that offense without their running game. You can't run that without Todd Gurley in the force for which they tried to get him running downhill on the other side drew Brees. He's been more. Effective at this point in his career. The last two years why because they run the ball. Both of these offenses are set up that they're running gains are vitally important. I just believe with the injury. The Sheldon Rankin that offense of line of the Rams it becomes more important to try to wear down the saints. When you come into an offense of huddle. There's two different types of verbiage. There's one verbiage which is very very long for a pass play typically run in plays a very very easy. Let's goes cat. Right. Thirty to blast. You don't need a whole bunch of communication Bill to do that..
"alvin kamara" Discussed on The NFL Show
"Respect Alvin Kamara by because we're not talking enough about that. So that is the side of it that I feel like if you play man coverage against the saints. They're going to get destroyed because those linebackers are not built and are not good enough to stick with Kamara. If you're going to sell him remember that the touchdown the taste health through the came back. If you're gonna use him vertically like so many good coaches have done over the last two years. Think about girly think about what the chiefs have done all of that. Then I think that it's going to be a problem. I think he is going to be the most important offensive weapon. They have despite what Michael Thomas one has done all season and two did against the Rams the first time around do you remember when there was that weird thing that went around ten years ago, but how Reggie Bush was most important Saint because of what he did to defense or something. And it wasn't true at all at that such an eight. NFL live meme was like we got everage Bush in the field, and it showed that Reggie Bush. When he was often field was significantly that. So, but I actually think that that is actually true of Alvin Kamara he is what people thought maybe someone like Reggie Bush would be which is that the entire defense has to account for him. And they changed looks and without someone without someone dynamically that in the backfield Michael Thomas getting very different looks. This was not a matter. The eagles were not just letting Michael they knew Michael Thomas is not letting him get those sort of matchups just because they wanted to that was not by choice. The saints defense gives you a lot of looks than give Michael Thomas favorable matchups. That's how you have a ninety percent comp- catch rate because you're getting favorable books. All the time because Sean Payton is good your breezes. Good Alvin Kamara Gooden on offense is good. They have such. I mean, I I wrote about I talked about this play a little bit. But talked about Zack lime yesterday. We were just discussing the one concept where he was like third and thirteen and breeze moved the the the cover to corner with his is this item. Thomas kind of drifted into that spot. That's a type of stuff it. You just can't count for. There's nothing to do. You can run the per-. Perfect defense, and they're going to beat you. And I think that's why they're so dangerous to me is because you can dial up the right call it can be the right thing against that route combination. And it doesn't matter if you don't get to him because he's gonna find a way I would like to talk briefly. It's kind of funny to me. I wrote a story on dot com today about sort of the this generation of older quarterbacks. And what they mean for team building. How they got here. What they mean for offense all that allowed Jess and one of the funniest points that was made was by Matt Hasselbeck, and he said, basically becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. When you start talking about quarterbacks we've seen everything drew Brees Tom Brady, and what ends up happening is defensive coordinator say, well, he's seen everything. So we can't blitz. He's going to torture this blitz. And then what happens is you end up getting blitzed a lot less than you. Should you end up getting more maybe vanilla looks and you stay healthier than you should. And you just keep going. That's that's part of it is defensive coordinator is not exactly sending the house. That's so true. Just think about. All the kind of the numbers and the rates for like getting blitz because people like well the way to beat Brady's. You could only bring four and that's rooted in truth because at one point it was the way to do it. But those things just kind of endure and kind of a way that's really funny. Well, it's you just hear like, it's all very anecdotal. So so yes. Oh, you could never butts Peyton Manning. There was that story that Jon Gruden told years ago about times hit he sent the house against Peyton Manning and payment through touchdown like fifty or touch any walk past Jon Gruden. So are you kidding me?.

I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.

"Let's go around the room real quick and figure out what we learned today as we do at the end of every post game show, Pete Sweney petted. You learn today. Patrick, Mahomes, reaffirmed today, just how talented he is. He didn't play a great game yet his offense still scored forty points. Like that is the offense you're dealing with now in Kansas City, and he's twenty three years old. He continues he's only going to get better. And that's something. We forget about Mahomes. He's not his finished product right now. What is the Mahomes going to be in three years from now? I think Aaron Rodgers are better. I think that's what you're dealing with. And so to me, you should be really happy about that. You can't sit. He wasn't a great win. There's some problems affixing a defense. But again, not a great day for the offense, forty points. Think about that. What did you learn today about your Kansas City Chiefs, Shawn barber? I'm reaffirm AMAN pizza again on a bad day. If you can hiccup. Instill school forty. We just now saw what people think is one of the best quarterbacks in history on Monday night football hiccup in score ten yet that ruin my changes in the air. Thirty eight point. Chance anyway, thirty eight point game. Saints Alvin Kamara Thomas, they was unstoppable, and they got little down ten points.

New Orleans Saints most likely days away from signing Brandon Marshal
"We got reports during the week that the saints worked out both Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall. Member. Brandon Marshall started this season in Seattle was cut by the Seahawks last week. Well, now, according to reports out of New Orleans Brandon Marshall is going to sign with the saints probably tomorrow or Tuesday. So they'll turn to him and give him a shot because they really are thin. I mean, yeah, they have they have Mike and Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram is back. But there's still there's they're thin.

"So the focus coming into the game, of course was on the offenses but in particular Todd Gurley in Alvin Kamara Todd Gurley thirteen carry sixty eight yards a touchdown six receptions, but only eleven yards for Todd Gurley as the saints did a really good job at stopping him at limiting his effect on the game. But on the flip side Alvin Kamara nineteen carries eighty two yards two touchdowns and four catches for thirty four and a touchdown Alvin Kamara he definitely outduelled girl yesterday as. We know what goes into it. And these performances blocking quarterback play and things like that. So what did you take from Alvin Kamara and Todd grows matchup yesterday, Allah Kamera is just a beast. Like, he's a huge part of that offense and that saints, and that's not then that's on a given credit. How good he is. And without him. I don't see this saints team being as good as it is right now, he is such a I think I think he did that much better than Gordon. And did you see that Watson the tight end for the same? God announce he has he his wife's pregnant with this touchdown celebration that awesome breeze at four touchdown passes to four different receivers. We know that's the kind of quarterback that drew Brees is that we know that's the type of offense that the saints have. So I'll say I'll ask you right now. Jeff are the saints the best team in the NFC. Yes. Better than the Rams Canada's prove the red of the Rams, they put it home. But do you do you think that they are better than them on a neutral field?.
"alvin kamara" Discussed on The NFL Show
"There had been he hadn't found the end zone in weeks, and they'd gone away from him a little bit about three weeks into the year. I thought that he was going to break the receptions record. And then Thomas. Yes. Yeah. But then it went away like it's slowed down a bit. And this is the type of game. It's like, oh, yeah. This is when they choose for him to be the dude this is what he does. They don't need him to be. And that's a sign of a good offense. And a good passing game is when you don't need to force feed a guy like that. But if they need to lean on him like they did tonight. It's ridiculous. It's on stoppable. I mean, he's one of the best five or six receivers in the NFL undeniably. Two players in history Twenty-three younger with three games of three touchdowns in a single season. Alvin Kamara is one of them who is the other. I have no idea. It's Jim Brown. So a bed the bad. The fact that we're talking about Michael Thomas. I drew Brees. And all these guys, we're not even mentioning Alvin Kamara who I don't know. I'm not going to say he worked his way into the MVP discussion because I don't think he's actually going to win the MVP. But if there is some sort of elongated list of MVP candidates. I would put Alvin Kamara on the fringe of that. I just thought that he was very impressed by the saints. Like, we talked about the Rams I did not change my mind on almost anything on the Rams except maybe wearing a little bit more about Marcus Peters. The saints. I came away hugely impressed by they have so many places to go. Can that's always why I thought they were so dangerous because it doesn't matter. It doesn't it. It's kind of like the Rams the Rams do the same thing. They can do so many things they can hurt you in so many ways. That's why they're frightening. And today the saints did it they can either hit you with Kamara or they can just throw the ball. To their dude fifteen times, and he will destroy you. It's a really nice place to be. When drew Brees is also your quarterback. I'm going to throw something out there. I talked last week about how it's kind of funny that Cam Newton's coming around and looks like he's going to be on the fringes on the fringes of an all pro season and kind of back to the Cam Newton that we know him to be and the reason it's funny is because you know, he's sort of the originator of a lot of these spread schemes because he and Mike Shula started in two thousand eleven when he came on the NFL putting up huge numbers with some basically Auburn concepts just two straight up Auburn concepts, and I kind of feel with Sean Payton. A sort of similar thing in a different way. Which is we talk about all of these offensive revolutionaries and innovators in these young guys who are coming in and have all of these great ideas. Dude. What do you think Sean Payton was twelve years ago like Sean Payton came in and was McVeigh? And so it's kind of funny to me. I mean, he just turned that franchise around with the saints head going on twelve years ago. Good lord. And so it's amazing to me that Sean Payton is not only was the McVay of this era. But he is as he is cutting edge as he was then now in this era of of youth..

I like to play a lot obviously and hopefully we'll find other ways to get him into the end zone. Okay. Just understand this. Look, you do what you have to do. Clearly, you have your own still wanna, make sure that you when we seem shelter combine senior bowl, wherever that is next, I don't get that like look look. No, it's just the friendship look.

"And it's interesting because you make somebody wait. If what if he played on Sunday, we'll talk if the ravens on Sunday could have gotten thirteen points then. Yeah, he could have the point. The point is you know, make it interesting extended off one more in these Thursday night games even to are making fun because now basically Tuesday, Wednesday is what you're doing. Your work Tuesday, Wednesday, you're doing work Thursday. I think Thursday, most leagues lock in some leagues, lock in ESPN locks. Your whole roster in on Thursday was kind of annoying. I don't like that at all because that's why do y'all y'all, who does not walk in your whole roster locks in just the players that are in Thursday game. And if there's a guy who's questionable for the Sunday game, you have him in your in your lineup, and then he goes to not playing on Sunday morning or you get you wake up on the west coast, you'd better wake up at nine because and you better check John Clayton, the media medical reports on it, make your just your accordingly because that's happening too many times a wake up at ten ten, the games are early games have already started and you and you missed out onto taking guy because you know, you have a guy who's injured playing or guy who's who's questionable and play, but he's gonna have a limited staps and like that and you wanted to get him out of there. So you didn't wake up early enough. That's the, that's the problem. So that's a different things. Lots of different things. I mean, yeah, I said fifty percent fifty percent skill because that can make a break your league. You can make a brick league by not waking up early enough. You can make you break your team by just bad luck and everybody outscoring you. There was a guy last year who had both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Both guys and they scored a lot of points last year, you know? And he did not Flint. He did not finish very well. I mean it's just to players, but he score a lot of points every week, but to get beat like one thirty, two one twenty or something like that. I mean, that's the highest score, but like one forty to one thirty s I'm like that on the all who on that score, how arly scoring. I mean, this Goering's are all different everywhere. ESPN is more low scoring with one decimal point versus yahu does to two hundred plays to that's more points are like. So you got to do that. All right. We got a few more. Not close to the segment, but you know, I have more things I wanted to get some PR stuff obviously, and going into the non PR is interesting because non PBR you can folk. If you're a non league, you automatically have to have a short yard running back. You need to have the guy who's gonna just basically. Be on the one yard line and score, and whether it's a starting running back for most some teams or legare blend for the lions or marshawn Lynch for the raiders even though I think he might actually be starting for them crazily. I think Jill Mashad who's their four third-string money back right now is better than both Doug Martin and. And marshawn Lynch follow you probably find that out this year while they, they actually, fortunately, they rotate all their running backs and he'll get touches regardless of where he is the upstart chart. P p r. catching the ball is non PBR catches aren't as a premium scoring touchdowns. So you wanna get these guys who are going to have the most opportunity to score. And that's those short yardage running backs who are gonna bullet in from a yard out. I mean, if you're if you're looking at a starter, there's to be terrible, be stars who are going to be doing that for teams. I mean. Joe mixing great in the short yardage plays. I'm sure saquon Barkley will be short yard guy for them on the one yard line as Elliot is great. The show yardage place. I mean, so I mean, a lot of these running backs are, but I mean, there's other teams like lions lions have a lot of options..

"Association. For Alvin Kamara special until proven. Otherwise I know that's more. Than one word but after what he did last year. Look people are gonna soon he's going to do it all over again we've seen guys have a rough second year just from wear and, tear or the league is starting to figure out. What he does but I mean what a threat he is both is a runner and as a receiver and. The temptation will be to, use him more while Mark Ingram is out Sean Payton has said repeatedly they're not going to do that and I wonder if. He's saying that. To, protect, himself against giving, into the, temptation, to use more but that's. Going, to be the key you don't. Want to overwork a. Guy. Like that and ended up not having him at all Yeah I'll go I mean you're you're great he is special I'm going, to? Go versatile I mean that's what I, think of right away because you know yeah pick your poison do you want, him to beat? You with running routes out. Of the, slot, position or do you want do you want him to. Beat you're running through the guard, tackle for thirty or forty yards I think he has I don't think he's, gonna win off you know MVP the league but I think he can be. Offensive player of the year I think. Almost how not having Mark Ingram early, in, the year could be. A blessing in disguise and a lot of. Ways I thought there was a lot of plays last year Mark Ingram define player don't get me wrong but where I looked at. It I was like oh man if Alvin Kamara got this carry this would have gone to the house instead of going for a fifteen or twenty yard gain so I think he's gonna put. Them in the conversation for for. Offense the player of the year this year and by the way just to clear up a point, from earlier in the segment adult DO.

"Um yeah i got beat i gotta be pretty bad and you know there was really not that i can do about it yes it was a tough game for year and we recall the un kaurent are like just be like match up against each other like if one does well the other one probably won't do as well because just the players you guys have and he he pulled it out he pulled out it did help that antonio brown went down so early for you probably like when you're better players that's happened to me this year if if i get a player that injured it's happened in the first quarter every time each yeah you've ever gillerman like the the late thursday early fourth where yalies got some points for home until you get flake of four point two you're done yeah happened with aaron rogers it happened with alvin kamara and helping happened yesterday with antonio brown it happened earlier with nixon every single time happened in the first quarter not that well i guess i think it would have made a huge difference if he would have been able to make it to the second half maybe get injured in the third quarter i don't like you know talking about that feed your guy and everything but mad what the i just bad luck and then i missing my number one pick in the third round game it was a tough match up for you is tough for you especially when you when you laws antonio league i know you kinda even felt deflated because you rely he came in the shadows like go this hicks so i knew that was tough on you and then especially since he's the levy on belo owner because then you know in pittsburgh lost their their top wide receiver levy on belgians kinda became magae yeah.
