"To us from the practice field outside the ed pro sports training center bills getting set for Cincinnati Chris I wish I had a nickel for every time I've said this this week it's only two games but it's only two games and yet the last years fifty two percent completion percentage passer is now at sixty four percent completion percentage passer yep too soon to. Josh alos start taking vows for that what do you think. dot I think it's an encouraging sign I think we were hoping that we would see him build off of his last start last season in the season finale against Miami and you know say what you will about whether Miami was running for the bus or not but he was a sixty five percent passer in that game and everybody's like well it was one game I am a really wasn't you know going for broke in that game they were mailing in the season they knew their season was going no where okay fine but I think the fact that he's been able to duplicate that. in these first two games in terms of completion percentage on the whole is certainly encouraging thing and people might say. wow you know he's thrown a lot more shorter passes he's got cold easily now with these high percentage throws underneath and I'll tell you I'll take that a step further is yards per attempt last year was around six and a half and right now he's at seven and a half so I think that kind of refutes that argument if you want to say he's throwing more shorter high completion throws the yards per attempt would indicate not hate there's nothing wrong with your own shorter high completions rose that's what everybody does how do you think I have a problem with it I just I'm just saying you know there's the devil's advocate out there yeah that may come to the table with that to argue well as completion percentages up because of that and that's patently untrue that's all the people who you know made a half a career out of saying how inaccurate Josh island was an in never work in the NFL those people kind of quiet right now yeah he's given unless unless ground to stand on yeah I mean they're running out arguments yeah they are yeah he is and I'll say this too I don't know if this was planned by coach Victor but knowing how detail oriented he is the first song out here from the DJs at the start of practice was public enemies don't believe the hype I don't know that's a message for the two and bills out here or not but I thought it was an interesting selection in terms of the the playlist shall we say yeah I should also mention guys that two other guys not part participating out here John Brown anti in Seki it could very well be veteran rest days again we're gonna have to wait on the injury report to know whether or not that was the case or is the case here right now one of the guy I want to talk to you about is Tyler Kroft he's been injured he's been on the shelf for the entire offseason they had surgery on his foot he's back in and no by no maybe perhaps by some fortuitous. break in destiny he's coming back has a chance to come back and fully practice in the same week they're playing his old team you think that was orchestrated for a month. four two it is Brett I got to write this down forty forty two it is rainy break in his destiny yes that is fan to I got to keep that one it's a fifty cent sentence there's Steve well done yeah I would I would say the chances are good that he plays this week I think they they've been supremely cautious in bringing him back in a very almost on an incremental basis here guys and I think it's because this is a foot injury that he's had before he's had to have surgery on in the spring he was listed as doubtful in week one did not address listed as questionable in week two did not address yet there's no more probable on the injury reports anymore so you're hoping with a full going practice here today that he feels great tomorrow and what that could hold is a very promising chance for him to be dressed for Sunday's game against his old team so yeah very fortuitous bills debut against his former club all four tight ends up on Sunday would you think how will they play that. yeah that could be tricky and that might hinge on some other elements that are happening on the injury list you know is Andre Roberts healthy can he play does he make his bills debut this Sunday I think if he's up that probably means only three tight ends are up this week if Croft is healthy and ready to go well the interesting thing about as you see those tight is run off lease Smith Dawson knocks Tommy Sweeney and of course Tyler Kroft they're all the same guy I mean they're all six five guys the only got the doesn't fit is Lee Smith who is a kind of an offense of linemen but Sweeney and knocks are really cut out of the same carbon copy as Tyler Kroft they're all kind of these toll lanky dudes who really I think in the core or kind of wide receiver type tight is now there are they are getting pretty on the pretty good edge blocking off from all of them but Lee Smith has set himself apart as a blocking tight end but man oh man. Tyler Kroft you talk about it if you're looking at the Buffalo Bills you got to get a pretty good idea of what they want in a tight and look at the three top guys they've got. yeah and and the interesting thing there is what it let you know when we get a little down the rabbit hole here but let's assume for now the tile across Croft is active on Sunday and does dress and does play I'm gonna be interested to see what they feel comfortable with him doing in terms of assignments and demand on that foot in his first game action are they simply just gonna have him detached all day and running routes in the passing game or they gonna have him stand in there and grind and block a little bit in the run game with Lee Smith if they go twelve personnel for example I'm just curious to see how much demand and pork they want to put on that foot not to say it's not going to be under stress and torque when you're running routes and you know breaking down and getting in and out of breaks their store here too for sure I'm just curious what the work load is going to be like for him I don't think it's going to be solely predicated on the game plan I think it might also be predicated on what you know the medical staff and everybody feels comfortable with him doing in the scope of the office I'm I'm with you Bernie I think it's going to be really interesting if Dawson ox is ready to go and and Andre Roberts is ready to go. how they're going to work their inactives this week off at fifty three man I think that's an enormous question I think it the bangles are gonna be said they're scratching their heads wondering as well. yeah and and I don't know that it's tremendously strategic because you know Cincinnati if they're if they're doing their due diligence they're preparing for all of those players to be available at up on Sunday and have match ups planned for accordingly but yet Croft has not been on film in this offense yet Audrey Roberts basically preseason felt in this offense so those are two elements that the bills could bring to the table this week we're Cincinnati really doesn't have much to go on Chris thanks for this we'll talk again tomorrow thank you. you got it yes Chris Brown bills insider Buffalo Bills dot com you can catch his work there you will write about today's practice and let you know what went on to have the updated injury report when practice sense we thank you for joining us got a good show you're coming up to you to tell you what's coming up you just heard Chris coming up at that one o'clock field Yates from ESPN fantasy football guru and all around and if electric and Oliver. bills defensive lineman coming up after practice today need your participation is well and look we're not that we don't have a pre coming down abit road yet but the bills are to a no and our question of the day not a quarter pole but a question today what's the best thing the Buffalo Bills have done to get off to this too in start you decide we have no options for you to vote on the best thing to bills have done to get off to a two and I'll start this year love to hear from your phone lines open eight oh three oh five fifty toll free from outside buffalo one eight eight eight five fifty two five fifty said the tweet we can read about the tweet sheet I'll let us know what you think what's the best thing to bills have done to get after this good start this year all right a break when we come back we're going to talk a little bit more about that question and let you know what is going on here and around the NFL come on back with this one does live presented back a lot of help read the Seneca studio at one bills drive in this is Buffalo Bills read..

"At five fifty five fifty as well as on Twitter at sneaky Joe W. G. R. I do want to talk some bills before we do that and you know some other stuff that's going on right now in the world of sports of course angel walked there's reaction still go on from that we'll tackle at all and also Christian Wade who is such a good lesson and it's still he still kind of an un known personally like we don't really still fully understand I think what happened with him at his at a previous job I get in right playing rugby in England I don't think we really know what motivated him to come over here and try football he gave some of that away today in in an interview with south Pasha we'll get to that a little bit later always a good listen listen him just and even if you just like accents because his accent sweet it's pretty sweet it's not quite you know the Australian accent is definitely like the coolest of the accents but this one is it's pretty cool it's pretty cool so you got that it's got that for going for it plus some stuff you might not have heard off from him earlier and you know thinking about the bills in like okay this is like talk radio time this is like perfect this is prime season right now we're talking about expectations and what we think they're gonna be in everyone's got a different opinion on that in what other teams around them are going to be in the division in the conference the season all this guy once we want this guy to make the team we don't want this guy we want this guy the practice squad yada yada yada and now it's about time for cut day and that's when people can get a little fired up this is when the opinions will really start to flow who you want the bills to keep and who you think deserves to be caught who maybe you think could be traded a position you thing needs to be added to and last night if you listen to my show last night I did a lot of what I thought the bill should do with the fifty three man roster specially wide receiver and running back I don't think you have to keep all four of the for you you should you know the guys who we talked about the most gore McCoy single Terry yelled in I don't think all four of those guys need to be on this team one could be traded for some sort of value there are teams are on the legal accused in a tap on the need running backs Tampa might not know they need a running back though that may be the difference there wide receiver brown easily you're sure things right both they look pretty good anyway so there are no problems there and then to really open for interpretation J. Jones pulling into the second half with the with the the tubes in the threes last game Robert foster playing some special teams gunner kick off Duke Williams who's been a monster in terms of his blocking and is made to I don't want to quit called circus catches but in varying crowd very impressive catches for touchdowns from do Williams in each of the last two preseason games I say mackenzie I don't know what this guy is what their plan is for him he has played two snaps in the last two games I hope that means he's on this team that's what I hope that means but I don't know if I can be confident that because bees is on the scene is the point browse on this team he's been playing when he's been healthy zeta Jones you think is on the scene he's been planned foster even not doing a lot but he's been playing mackenzie has two steps in the last two games in what's funny is on both of them they're big gains one was a very impressive six yard touchdown run in the other one was a thirty seven year past a reception I should say so every time the guy goes out in the field he is doing stuff that's impressive and I hope that him not playing means that he's on this team will see on Thursday if he doesn't play at all on Thursday that I'm really gonna think that he's on this team so I'd like to see him here I'd like to see Duke Williams here I don't need say Jones but for me that final six spot like if I were going to carve out what I want to build a new receiver brown be easily foster because of his upside because of what he did last season Duke Williams because of what he showed his uniqueness to the position that the bills are otherwise have as a big physical presence that I say mackenzie because the guy makes plays every time he's on the field not just in the pre season because I do take the pledge seriously but last year as well during the regular season he was dynamite I thought Z. Jones versus Andre Roberts that would be for me the battle for the final spot on this team at receiver now that's what I would do strikes me that's not what the bills are thinking Roberts the way they've used him the way they signed him in the first place the fact that he got first team snaps throughout training camp and preseason he's probably on the steam he might be the th sal has put it in terms of this he thinks three guys are safe brown be easily and he thinks that Roberts is safe I don't dispute that I think he's probably right I think Audrey Roberts is on the steam I wouldn't have him on this team but he's probably on the steam so deviating from what I would do my best guess at what the bills are going to do at those positions in really the entire offense receiver brownie Beasley around this team I think they're gonna keep Roberts green was cell on that one he would know better than me anyway I think past that Jones in foster and I'll be honest of this group between ray ray macleod Isay mackenzie Duke Williams I think they keep one I don't know which one it is at this point my best guess would be that it's going to be mackenzie you know because Williams what's funny about him is kind of funny about him but what what kind of came about with Duke Williams is he kind of just came on the scene a quiet training camp for him but before that second preseason game I don't know if I heard anything about Duke Williams he was getting a lot of reps in practice seemingly he can play a lot the first preseason game we certainly to get the ball thrown his way and then suddenly boom second preseason games areas third preseason game boom areas Anne's thrust his hat into the ring I think for the final receiver spot but maybe they'll keep seven but this is where becomes a numbers game if you keep five running backs which could happen they did two years ago you keep five running backs you keep in seven receivers he keep in four tight ends because a tight on what he doing even that's up in the air Kroft maybe goes on P. U. P. if that happens I still got to make a cut Knox we Smith Sweeney and then probably Krumm if you keep for but do you need to keep for in that scenario are you keeping three my best guess for tight end would be Lee Smith Dawson knocks Tommy Sweeney they go three because I think what it comes down to it at running back receiver at tight end it doesn't have to be this way but if they kept an extra guide one of the three positions I think it would be running back I think that's where they would keep five because there is reason to believe that there are four guys on your team at the at running back that are at some level active between McCauley gore single Terry yelled in and then if you want to keep a special teams guy so that's where you get five running backs that could be sourced Perry although he's doing an injury maybe Marcus Murphy and the Christian way goes the practice squad that be my best guess at what they do with running back and receiver again I think mackenzie McLeod and Williams are battling for one spot you know I don't really have a strong opinion on ray room a cloud but he was on this team all last season the I never really saw him on the field a lot he hasn't developed in terms of a return I would rather mackenzie be a return and Roberts is here to do just that he's the best of the bunch so what they drafted McCloud to do in the first place which was kind of like what do they draft him to be I think when they drafted him to be as I say mackenzie a guy that yeah it's not gonna start but if you bring a man you know that once in a while he's gonna make place for you he can do those gadget plays you can do the Littles the reverses in the swing passes in the screens and he can be in the return game I think what you want out of a room a cloud is what IT mackenzie's become end I know it's preseason I don't want to too much out of it the mackenzie makes plays in the preseason a cloud it was a certain that was a circus catch last week to see it he is going across the Middle Tyree Jackson had some right hands the beautiful pass and he bobbles the ball right into the defender's hands and then the defender bobbles it back right back into mackenzie's hands so we got incredibly looked good on him for sticking with the play get incredibly lucky that defender doesn't come down with that intersection which is about a very easy catch the ball's in your hand you got to make that catch I don't trust him enough as a wide receiver at this point to me where I would think he is a guy I would like to see them keep over mackenzie or Williams cloud I think he's still in it I would have him on this team but I go by guess would be he is in a group of three battling for that last spot came Phillips David Selznick easily not really think there's much chance if any that those guys can crack it so what will they end up doing it's not gonna look like what I would want them to do but I think the overall point of the off season was to get to where the spot the bills are right now last year they were starving for good offense of players around their quarterback starving for it Josh jail and hit the field in that raven game he dropped back to pass and he was looking at nothing.

"That it's happened a lots of positions throughout history drug bills history I wasn't ready to crown him for that position and this training camp so far we'll see what he does in the pre season we'll see what kind of role he has an opening day against the New York Jets but he is not setting up to be the next Antonio brown the next guy you can point to and say get these receivers the end does look they did it the bills that with Robert foster that's not really it's not really trending in that direction at the very least I think would you would have to give him right now is like even if Joxer Louis Jacques said there from ESPN if he's fighting with ray ray macleod for playing time what does that mean but what is he really fighting for right now what what is the bare minimum that he is fighting for and I think at the very least he should have a roster spot here did you I just don't think you can cut the guy no matter what is training camp looks like it was he's out of shape over weight look that's different but inconsistent whatever you looks like I don't you can cut the guy that flashed like he did at the end of last year I just don't think you you do that I don't think you do so I want to say his roster spot is completely safe but I want to think it pretty much is so vis battling bare minimum for playing time with ray ray macleod think about that means the bill is gonna be running a lot of spread offense this year all the film guys we've had on the you've heard from they are they change their offense big time in the second half of the year with a new date computer rooms out of the picture they were so far away from the office the designed for anything Peterman at the beginning of the year now it's Allen's turn now we're gonna see what Josh Ellen's offense looks like it was a lot of empty sets lot of five receivers wide not always wide receivers I tweeted the one time it's still the most mind boggling thing I've ever seen in my life when I looked out at the bills jets game and Josh Allen was in the back field five receivers all around him in those five receivers like only two of them were actually wide receivers they Jones was having foster was the other one and then it was packed demarco and Chris ivory end Charles clay and just like all my god like are you kidding get some weapons around this guy foster at the very least I think should be a part of that group at the very least but maybe that's what he might lose here to macleod if there's like a real roster battle going on there because think about what the receivers would look like they don't have any tight and everything right now they would say okay you got to put him in when you empty sat five wide is he got a tight in there I don't have a guy right now you would hope das knocks becomes that but he's he's been out for the last week of practice not training in that direction John brown's out there for sure these lease out there say Jones is out there now you've got two spots left and I would want to hand one of those spots to Robert foster and then think Hey maybe have a running back maybe TJ Yeldon is one of the other guys maybe they do have a tight and maybe Tyler cross the other guy maybe in the cloud is maybe I'm very Roberts is that's the one that's most head scratching to me is you've got a guy who's been in the league for years but not as a receiver and suddenly we're turning him back into a receiver it sounds a lot like what they tried to do with Mike Tolbert it was not a fan of that idea at all you would a player and Mike Tolbert who they brought in from Carolina because they knew him who really hadn't played significant time and running back four years suddenly you bring a man like you when he wasn't the with the Chargers before Caroline is a running back suddenly he comes the Buffalo Bills think okay we can moving back to running back it'll be fine and he provided zero zero tap at all behind the show McCoy not a factor whatsoever not dangerous not let me veteran presence in the locker room sure he might be given the given you that but its terms in terms of what he did on the field he put them in a spot where they had to go get traverse cadet midway through the year two because they needed another running back they could be on the field and not embarrass himself and I'm starting to think that Andre Roberts might be that but light over Turner who is not really Benny true wide receiver he's not really been utilized is a true wide receiver going back to Washington in twenty fourteen okay sets right now the guys that had over twenty five targets sense twenty fourteen seventeen targets last year for the year before that twenty five twenty one that is a best part time player that is coming in because of injuries and that's fine if he's on the steam is a return that is fine I've compared to brain Tate a lot Brady take got some steps a wide receivers for the bills generally was only when they had four five receivers on the field in addition to injuries that's what Robert Andriy Robert should be at his best a great returner we were only playing a wide receiver if you are desperate and they should not be desperate for what they have set up right now they should not be so what else do you do a wide receiver is that it Duke Williams by most accounts was great today he has a really made much noise of much of any noise on this this year training camp so I think that's kind of where you're at it's a very interesting thing that I'll be looking at in training camp in preseason brown be easily we know it how big a gap is there right now between Z. Jones and Robert foster how big a gap is there between foster and ray ray macleod because to me I'm having a tough time gauging where foster is I you know we somewhere between we say Joan standing on the team and rare in the clouds standing on the team but has he reached a point where he is now closer to a battle with macleod then a battle with Jones because if we were really all wanted to get what we if I was going to get what I wanted out of Robert foster this year in this year's training camp but the beginning the beginnings of the season it would have been yeah this guy's making noise and he is pushing the Jones that starting spot and we haven't heard anything like that so far anything like that eighty three oh five fifty is the phone number I got a couple of interesting stats Fauria one I need an Peterman I'll bring up when we come back and I got pull up on Twitter I would love to be voted on it because that I kind of let's spend some more time in this as we progress throughout the night Brandon bean Sean McDermott they have now been here this is their third season in this is generally the time were like alright you need to win you need to win rex Ryan did you make to a third year but it certainly would have been that picture run maybe got too long but we all wanted him to win your three right a lot of these coaches year three is like that's it you have to win now chan Gailey you have to win now and I'm not getting the sense that bean and McDermitt are in a situation where it is have to win maybe it is closer to want to win and I would have to think that that in large part is them making the playoffs in twenty seventeen so my pull up on Twitter that want you to vote on that sneaky Joe W. G. R. should making the playoffs in twenty seventeen by being in mid term in an extra year to figure things out should that season where they locked in with Andy Dalton throwing a dime to Tyler void the got him into the playoffs should that season where they were minus fifty seven point differential by the way should that season be enough to give them an extra year if things don't really go as planned this season eight oh three oh five fifty is the phone number like I said I got a really interesting stat though on that end that includes anything Peterman also being in McDermott in their time with team as well when we come back I want your calls eight oh three oh five fifty call and we'll get right on through the break and I will continue wants not cap with Joe the twenty twenty Nissan rogue has.

"Heading toward our two of the program. Getting ready to slide over to NBC before we do that. And I didn't NBS pointed out yesterday at PFC free agency from twenty eighteen produced. No Pro Bowl starters. Only four players that changed teams last year in free agency made the Pro Bowl that all Mike pouncey the charges. He was actually cut by Miami colts tight end, Eric Hebron jets return specialist Andre Roberts and giants special teamer, Michael Thomas, none were Pro Bowl starter. So it is on the surface a cautionary tale when you're getting ready to spend money on players that you may sign in free agency. But the reality is that's not going to stop teams from spending money in free agency. They're still going to do it. Because there is a partial football reason and a partial if not major business reason for spending that money right out of the gates every team knows by now that if you are at the front of the line first day of free agency, you're doing a bad deal. You're paying more than you. Should you're paying the premium for non football reasons, you're paying the premium because you want to sell tickets, you wanna create excitement you want to win the press conference you want the. The local and national media to be talking about you and your team you want to sell jersey. You want to sell hats you want to sell PSL's. You just want to be a big deal. And if you can't be a big deal by winning you become a big deal by buying and for some teams. That's it. For some teams the best day of the year is the day. They spent a crapload of money on some guy who's never going to earn it because that's the one day. Everybody loves you because they're not thinking at that point. Like Vikings fans weren't thinking. Last year went Kirk cousins was signed. This guy's gonna stink. All their thinking is the possibilities. What it could lead to what it could become? Wow. Highest paid quarterback in NFL history. He must be good or they wouldn't be making him the highest paid quarterback in NFL history. He's going to change everything we got to the final four with case keenum. And now we've got Kirk cousins and everything's gonna be great you keep calling him. No, I didn't. I didn't it always sounds. It. Sounds like Kurt to me play it back. I did. I definitely did. I don't even pretend anymore. It used to be. I would only call him Kurt like..

Like, we're going to actually be able to do some damage if we if we get a couple of pieces in play next year yet they haven't negatively affected their draft position and their ability to have a top three pick and get one of these defensive studs.

That was a nice little treat yesterday. I was not expecting that. That was delicious. So nice work to the eagles staff yesterday as for the game. Nick foles is a stud. He gets the record all time breaks the eagles franchise record passing yards in a game. He did have a bad pick and did have a bad fumble. But other than that. He did a terrific job. Getting the ball Zakar to also broke a record most research. Options for tight end ever in NFL history. And he has a game left like McCaffrey to Shawn Watson was amazing. He was absolutely amazing. And the game. He is the truth. Unfortunately for the Texan that wasn't enough. They had a number of injuries to marry his Thomas and some of the guys in the secondary, which are concerning. But it was a terrific terrific football game. Jeez. Rams beat the cardinals. Thirty one nine it snap their two game losing streak. Larry FitzGerald had a throwback touchdown pass.

"Peter king's football morning in America. Shop full of all sorts of news information interviews and enough stuff to keep you occupied on your Monday morning and Monday afternoon and into Tuesday the stuff in there is still fresh and relevant. You can find it at NBC sports dot com. And it pro football talk and Peter is with us today as he will be on most if not all Tuesday's Peter we do it a little thing the draft. We've done it before we had a lot of fun. When you did it you extended to five rounds you are responsible for our first ever five round PF t live draft today. The biggest surprise is coming out of week one. And is always you will be calling the coin the virtual coin in the air heads or tails. What are you got heads? See if it's George Washington lady. Liberty is PS. Chris Simms would say, and it's again, it's rigged hashtag rigged which hunt. All right, Peter. You get the you get the first pick New York just putting up forty eight points and doing it on from all areas of the field. Five picks Andre Roberts in the return game. Sam darnold doing his best Broadway. Sam I like the jets putting up forty eight is the stunner of the week. Yeah. And it's hard to disagree with that. I thought the lions would win and win easily especially after the pick six to start the game. I'm thinking, oh, boy, this is you know, by the third quarter. We're going to be ready to change the channel or watch the next game. But I thought it was because the lions would be up. Instead, it was the jets that was a huge when that was a stunner. And and the jets have to be feeling pretty good about themselves. At least for now there there may be a correction coming but for now they have to feel pretty good for me. And you know, it feels cliche now because we've gotten used to it. But my God Ryan Fitzpatrick, and what he did in New Orleans against team that that people have penciled in for at a minimum the NFC championship game. If not the Super Bowl and survivor polls throughout the country, or now wracked, I know mine, I'm done. I thought of all the games. Okay. Saints AIP taking on a bucket. Here's team without Jameis Winston. And the saints are loaded, and they're playing at home, and and so much for that the buck. Kinnear's come in led by Ryan Fitzpatrick whose only the second quarterback ever. I know this is a fairly obscure stat but four hundred yard passing four touchdowns. No picks and a rushing touchdown. Mark in in one thousand nine hundred ninety one that's the second ninety one Washington reference on the program today. The only other quarterback to have done it Fitzpatrick joins it and he will be the NFC offense. Well, no, he won't be Aaron Rodgers have something to say about that. But again, I like I like guys who play both halves Ryan Fitzpatrick played both halves. Number three. I I mean, I I don't I don't know how anybody could have expected. I expected Khalil Mack to be big. And I think he expect them to do something that I expect them to have a pick six. No, did I expect him to steal the football from the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. No, I didn't expect that did I expect him to play two thirds of the snaps after not being in training camp at all. No. So I will give my number. I'll take the number three pick in the draft by second round pick. We'll be Khalil Mack not necessarily shocking the world but a shocking first performance for the for the Chicago Bears. And it really did get undermined though, Peter by the fact that in the second half he largely disappeared because Aaron Rodgers was getting rid of the football. But that first half was rollicking it, and you know, I have an all time bad tweet that I posted right? At the start of the third quarter. When Aaron Rodgers was coming back in. I said essentially, why would you put this guy back on the field? Given what Khalil Mack is doing? And of course to win the game would be the answer to that question. Which is what you know, what they say, Mike what they say. They say you play to win the game. You know, I've heard that one at Tira to over the years, and by the way, congrats Herm Edwards. He won his debut for Aaron estate over the weekend. Now. I don't know if it was debut, but it was his first win either dead, which is winning games again as a coach and with Khalil Mack. I wanna see how much better he will be once he's had a chance to really get his sea legs and getting better shape and and get a better feel for his teammates. And what he did you call it last week. He's going to open things up for guys like Akeem Hicks, and it came Hicks was creating havoc in the first half. Because of what Khalil Mack was able to do by way of drawing attention on the outside. So that bears deep bears defense could be very very good this year. Here's a surprise. This was something. We obsessed over for months. The NFL changed the rule without changing the rule. Well, they didn't change the role officially unofficially. I think they narrowed its focus through sixteen games. One foul the entire weekend for lowering the helmet and initiating contact. Now, they missed one last night with Leonard Williams putting his helmet in the stomach of Matthew Stafford but to have only one of those after the average was one. One point two five per game to have one in sixteen games. I don't know if guys have already adjusted their technique, or if the officials are only looking for what would amount to spearing. But my God. I haven't seen a narrative evaporate. More quickly than than what we saw on Sunday. It's just like what? Mike Pereira told me on the sidelines. The Cleveland Philadelphia preseason game in week three by week to nobody be talking about this anymore. And I mean, it's probably week one. Nobody's talking about it anymore. Mike, I'll give you my next one. And that is the Cleveland Browns coming back from twenty one to seven down in the fourth quarter to the dreaded hated Pittsburgh Steelers. And and again, that's why I think the Cleveland Browns are different this year because they're down twenty one seven they come back to tie the game. And you've got Jarvis Landry coming off the field cursing after the game angry that they had to settle for a tie. These are not your aunts, and uncles, and fathers, and grandfathers and whatever Cleveland Browns. I think nebr- I don't know if they're going to be any good. But I do know there's different feel around that team. Yeah. There's still some awkwardness between Hugh Jackson the head coach. And Todd Haley offensive coordinator this whole question of Josh, Gordon. How did he end up in the starting lineup when Hugh Jackson said he should be in the starting lineup. But the personnel grouping the Todd Haley put out there had Josh Gordon. And then for Hugh Jackson to talk about in the aftermath of the game. There's there's some odd stuff going on there. But as long as they're not losing games. It it presumably won't completely bubble over. But we'll see what the Browns can do at New Orleans. And then they've got that Thursday night game against the jets. I really feel like they need to win one of those two. And that I went probably not going to come in New Orleans for me. Peter desha Watson was not the Shawn Watson. I don't know who that was on Sunday in New England. But you know, we've been talking a lot about a lot of good surprises. That was a bad surprise that. Shawn Watson looked like anything. But the guy that we saw last year when he was not just rookie of the year candidate. He was a shortlist MVP candidate as he took the Texans and the rest of the NFL by storm and even though they only lost by seven points. So there's some encouragement to take out of it. If you're going to have a horrible game like that and still be one score away from forcing overtime. That's good. But we got to see more of the desha Watson from last year. And it makes me wonder how much teams were able to crack the code on what? The Texans do with the Shawn Watson and Bill Belichick figure it out. And is there a blueprint there? Now that other teams are going to use when facing the Texans worst offensive lines in the league week one number one the Seattle Seahawks number two the Houston Texans. But the Houston Texans are not the worst only because Seattle. So bad. I think the Shawn Watson is going to be running for his life this year. Mike, I'll give you my next one. And that is the fact that the Buffalo Bills go from being a playoff team in two thousand seventeen to being hapless in one offs in one off season. And remember during training camp when we're all saying, oh my God. They're quarterbacks they're there. They got an embarrassment of riches, basically, we don't know how good they're going to be. But they got three competent guys AJ McCarron Nathan Peterman. And obviously, Josh Allen. They're going to be able to let Josh Allen learn and all that. So what happens if they get a little greedy in training camp? They trade AJ McCarron to the bills for a draft pick. To the raiders for a draft pick. And then they say we'll give the job to Peterman. Well, Nathan Peterman played like J Peterman. And now you have to basically say we have to either go get some insurance emergency quarterback in Colin Kaepernick end or we got to throw Josh Allen to to the wolves. Can you imagine that crowd in orchard park on Sunday, Mike, if they put Peterman out there is second series? He throws a pick six. I mean, he's going to need a police escort to get out of that stadium. Think Sean McDermott will need one is. Well, if he's the guy who puts Peterman out there against the chargers the team that picked off Peterman five times in the first half of his first NFL start a year ago. Now that game was played in LA. But it's not really a home game for the chargers. They have no home games. They play sixteen road games. Did you see the shot of the and this completely changes the subject? Did you see this shot the crowd shot of the chiefs chargers game? Peter in LA. It was all red house sea of Red Sea of red resend it on and and they say when they opened the new stadium. It's gonna get better. No, it's not there's just going to be more fans of the visiting team. That's going to be the charges exist. And you don't understand Mike? I'll tell you what. I don't understand what charger fan who is gonna pay the PS L cost to go. See the chargers in that stadium. I mean to me that's that has a chance to be like the Yankees. When you watch one of their home games at Yankee Stadium all the seats behind home plate, you know to. Thirds of them are empty even for significant games. And and you know, to me, that's what I would worry about the cost of the tickets and the PSL's in LA is so high who's paying that to go see the chargers. Well, and so far the Rams have really established the lead because they understand the L A Hollywood dynamic they go for sizzle they go for style the substances there as well. But they know how to sell and they've sold the teams they sold that team to the fans in L A and Jared cook once played for the LA Rams. He's my fourth pick here. We've already talked about him..

"Peter, I didn't have a whole lot of faith in the rest of week one. After that stinker on Thursday night between the falcons and the eagles, but the rest of the week delivered. And even though last night's games were lopsided. They were fun to watch especially if you're fans of the jets and the Rams, but what a debut for Sam darnold. The pick six on the first throw joining joining Brett farve and Jameis Winston as the other two high profile quarterbacks who have thrown pick six is on their first career passes, but Donald turning it around and pulling off the forty eight to seventeen win a remarkable night for the jets a rare happy prime time performance for the New York. Jets franchise, Peter Mike, the three things that I'll take away from week one as. Quasi stunning slash extremely pleasant surprises for their team number one the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick. Look great throwing the ball downfield. And clearly Jameis Winston is going to have a difficult time getting his job back. But you have to understand too got Philadelphia and Pittsburgh coming up in the next two weeks. Then Winston comes back. So we'll see number two the jets. I thought that what was most impressive about the jets was that it was a complete team performance. This wasn't a game that they're trying to hide Sam darnold and win with defense. Heck they want as much because special teams as because of anything Andre Roberts. Look great. And the return game. They get five interceptions. They know what's coming practically. They said they did. And then the jets to me number two pleasant surprise number three Joe flacco and the Baltimore Ravens, basically sticking it to the man. No matter what was said. After the game. No matter. What anything I will be convinced that Joe flacco is saying see you draft a quarterback. Maybe you wanted to motivate me. That's exactly what you did. But I given this job away. And we're going to be a lot better than people think that's a really really interesting game this week the Thursday night or at Cincinnati with Baltimore. And here's the thing about flacco. And I made this point yesterday with Chris Simms. Why is it that he needs some sort of special circumstance to get the best out of him in two thousand twelve it was playing for a contract, and then he gets paid. He gets complacent. He's not the same guy. And he just kinda floats around for a few years. Now, they put a little heat on his rear end. And he's back to who. He was in two thousand twelve why isn't he that guy without some sort of effort to grab a brass ring to avoid getting getting the boot? Well, Mike what he would tell you is that the last two years he just hasn't been healthy as an entered the season healthy. In either the last two years, and so he he didn't have training camp two years ago practically last year, basically the same. So I think what I would say in this is if you're the ravens you're looking out for your future, your offense stinks. You don't know what you're going to get Joe flacco. So I'll just say this. If it takes using the thirty second pick in a draft trading up trading to to move up to get a thirty second pick in the draft in order to to reconfigure your quarterback position. And to give you real insurance there that even you may not need, that's fine. With me. You know is anybody in Baltimore unhappy today, they took Lamar Jackson at number thirty two this year. You shouldn't be because now you do have that insurance in case flacco does not play. Well. And you had your three big takeaways from games involving teams that scored forty eight forty eight and forty seven points. And you know, look the ravens I expected the ravens to win big because the bills stink. But for the buccaneers on the road, forty eight the law the jets on the road against the lions forty eight. That's a stunner to me. And with the buccaneers you mentioned Ryan Fitzpatrick, we're going to be having this conversation two weeks from today the morning after the buccaneers and the Steelers play Tony Dungy gets put into the team's ring of honor win or lose. Jameis Winston will be coming back on a Tuesday with a trip to play the bears coming up on Sunday and a bye week. After that, I think fits Patrick's already shown enough to justify letting him go ahead and finish that four game stretch. Don't jam Winston back onto the field, especially against the bears with Khalil Mack. Let Fitzpatrick finish the first twenty five percent of the season. Take the by week to get Jameis Winston ready for the falcons weeks. Six. Entirely possible, Mike. But the reason we don't know this is that Dirk cutter is not taking Ryan Fitzpatrick. Gotta the lineup if he's playing very well. He's just not going to do that is a very simple reason that you're going to go as far as in that with that franchise. They have been had their growth stunted in my opinion by the inconsistent play of James Winston. If Ryan Fitzpatrick is playing great why in the world, would you even consider taking them out of the lineup. It doesn't matter that Winston was the first pick in the draft. I'd say the same thing, you know, no matter who the quarterback was if your backup is playing really well. And again, I this is all speculative because in my opinion, you know, there's a good chance. He's he's gonna get swarmed against the Philadelphia Eagles this week, and it's gonna be tough to beat the Steelers. Anyway as well. My whole point is that we're going to know this. In two weeks. We don't know today. But we're gonna know it in two weeks. I just know this that I don't think the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are taking Ryan Fitzpatrick out of the lineup win or lose these next two weeks if he's playing very well. Phrase growth stunted that takes me back to to my youth. Remember, they used to tell you cigarettes will stunt your growth, they won't stunt your growth, get lung cancer. But they won't stunt your growth growth said. But you're right. Jameis Winston has been too inconsistent. And maybe this suspension is the thing that snaps him out of it. I think he tries to often to do more than he's physically capable of doing. And maybe watching Ryan Fitzpatrick will be a key lesson to him stay within the lanes of what you can do. And if you just do that that will be good enough. You don't have to be a super human. Just be the best version of yourself. You can be and that's what Fitzpatrick was it was incredible. I I don't know how the saints defense comes back from being shredded by a journeyman Harvard educated quarterback who has played its usual list of teams. He hasn't played for than the teams he has played for and that performance. I it got overshadowed by with Aaron Rodgers did on Sunday night. But that's still continues to be the most stunning outcome of the day. You just sneered at Harvard. Didn't you? No. I'm just saying that, you know, a top-flight NFL defense is got to be thinking. This guy's been hanging around the NFL for forever who played Ivy league football comes in here and completely tears us apart. There's there's gotta be something wrong with us. I agree. I mean, I think that the biggest surprise in a negative sense. This week was the New Orleans defense how in the world play as well as you did a year ago and come back and your and your debut right out of the box at home against a mediocre franchise is to give up forty eight at home. It was that was ridiculous. But I do think the one thing about the New Orleans defense. It's going to happen. I think Dennis Allen is the kind of coach Sean Payton, certainly will be the kind of coach who's gonna make it very very uncomfortable for these guys around that team this year. If you've got the saints is your defense and special teams, I'm not just saying this because Cleveland is coming in this week. I will be stunned if the saints don't rebound in play very well on defense. Last year they had an ugly defensive showing week one on a Monday night against the Vikings. They turned it around and became a Super Bowl contender last night's game. The other side of the coin the lions were horrible offensively Matthew Stafford bruised and battered and foreigner sections. We've got an item at PF t Michael David Smith points out Matthew Stafford has five four interception games since joining the NFL in two thousand nine the most of any quarterback in that span. Now, look, you're you're going to have multiple interception games. If you're playing a lot, and if you are a franchise quarterback, but I don't know of many foreigner -ception games from Tom Brady over the years, Stafford has five of them in less than a decade that that is not a stat that you want to make a plaque four and put on your your living room wall, and you know, two of them, right? With Darren Lee Darren Lia had a note my column yesterday was last last season. Was pro football focus is lowest rated inside linebacker out of fifty in football. And so I mean, look maybe daringly took took some football medication in the off season. I don't know. You know for for them to come back and for him to play as poorly as he did against the jets. And who knows the jets may turn out to be a great defense and play really well this year on defense wouldn't shock me with Todd Bowles running running the show. But that was that was that was a real shocking performance last night and Darren Lee, Peter he's the one who pointed out after the game that the jets defense was calling out the Detroit plays as Matthew Stafford was getting up to the line. We knew his signals. We knew everything that's just preparation is a defense. It seemed like we were in his head as a defense and Leah tributed to study everybody studied Moore's clayborn said he had never experienced a week. A film study like what the jets did. And it shows you that there is an edge to be gained. If you study study study, you pick up tendencies, you pick up tells there's only so much that a team is going to do differently than what it puts on film. Over the course of a period of games weeks years and the jets figured it out. They crack the code and now they get to work trying to crack the code for the dolphins on a short week to see if they can welcome in Miami. And hand them their I lost. That's a sneaky great game on Sunday one jets and the one dolphins. And you know, the winner is going to be the team that we say, hey, maybe this team has a chance to catch the patriots probably won't. But, but at least may have a chance. The one thing about knowing their plays. I guess I would make this point NFL teams. Basically when they go back and scout teams, they're going back and looking and dissecting their four previous games. Well, you know, the jets, obviously, if you've got the whole off season to prepare for a team they're going to be able to look at more than just the four previous games. But in knowing everything when the know the lions had some changes, especially in the running game in the backfield with Lagarde bond, kerryon Johnson coming in there. I mean, I guess you can study their signals because Jim Bob cooter is the same. And and Stafford is the same, but you're going back in studying last December's tape. So if the jets really found out a lot I tip my tin foil cap to them, Mike. Data rates may apply. Please not ever wonder why European seemed to speak so many languages. Maybe it's because they.
