It's the golden state media concepts fantasy football podcast And welcome to another edition of jesus. Mc fantasy football podcast brought to you by the mc podcast network. I am your host canada through infielder and we have another great show for you guys today. So starting off the show. I'm gonna do a preseason week to recap and talk about some of the players that kinda stood out. You know particularly. I'm gonna go into the rookie. Quarterbacks and talk about them talk about their performances and some other players as well then in the second segment. I'm gonna talk about injuries and some of the injuries that i think are going to kind of impact your philosophy of thinking if you haven't done your fancy drafts yet. Because there are some injuries maybe you wanna wait on these guys. When you're drafting and pick them in the later rounds you know just in case you don't get messed up you know. Your team doesn't get messed up when you're drafting And you don't waste the pick then in the third segment. I'm going to do a schedule. Outlook on the cleveland browns and talk about the favorable and unfavorable matchups on their schedule. Then in the fourth segment to conclude the show. I am going to go through each nfl. Team i will go through one per show. And i will talk about whether or not they will match their point. Totals from last season or if they will you know see. A reduction in their point totals from last season. And i know i kind of did a segment producer reduce. I did a segment on that. But i'll kind of do go through each. nfl team. And i will talk about each individual player that at least it will make an impact and fantasy and talk about whether or not. They will eclipse their fantasy total. Or they'll see reduction or if they'll be right there like right at that. Marker of their point totals from last year so to make more sense. Once i get to that point start off with the nfc east. And i will talk about. Actually i'll do the philadelphia eagles. I and then. I will work my way through that and go based off of where everybody finishing the standing last year so basically similar to how i've been doing you know the player position rankings and the schedule outlooks which i'm actually almost done with and now i'm going to be doing three shows a week so i'm going to be you know coming at you guys with more content during the next couple of weeks so that's really exciting. So yeah that's kind of the rundown four today's show so let's get right into the first segment which is talking about the week to preseason recap so obviously you know a bunch of games are played over the course of the last couple of days and there were some pretty good performances from some players that i kinda wanted to talk about. I wanted to get into the rookie. Quarterback's though so zach wilson against the green bay packers went nine of eleven hundred twenty yards and two touchdowns i thought he looks pretty impressive from the highlights that i saw. I thought that you know it gave me a little bit more confidence in him. Going into the season now. I know that it was against the packers second strings you know not everybody was playing but you know what. I think that you know with everything that went on in the off season how we got signed late and all that you know he looked pretty good and i really think that at this jets offensive line holds up and he does have some weapons around him. I think he can have a good season. And i think that starting off against carolina week one. I think that's a fair will match of for him. So i really do think that the more reps that he gets more comfortable he's going to get with this offense and obviously allies. You're more one of their draft. Choices from this past draft has not played yet. So that's only going to make him better and you know they got some guys there. Michael carter's young running back. And you know i feel like we've got to see what enzo mims could do you know him. This is being his second year in the league. And obviously you bring in corey davis to be your number one. Obviously you know i. I would like for them to have a better wide receiver as their number one. Corey davis. I feel like it's still a number two but we'll see how he does. You know like. I said a wiser more hasn't played yet. You still have jamison crowder there so you know he's got some guys to throw and if this offensive line can hold up. I think he could be productive. I really do you know. He's got the talent for it you know. And let's see what he does but You know very encouraging in his second start of the preseason you know what i think this does give some fantasy managers in a little bit more confidence in him now that you see what he does in game action. Obviously if you pick this guy in dynasty leagues you know going forward. You know long-term we'll see how he is long term. You know it's obviously he's not going to be you. Know your starter right away. At least if you took the draft in old guy draft a young guy approach. Like i did in my dynasty league greige rogers and justin fields. You know. i think that he definitely can be a guy that could be waiver. Wire pickup during the year as well in a regular standard leaks to you know because listen i. I think the jets are going to be an improved team. This year obviously are not going to contend for a super bowl this year. I mean things can happen. But definitely i do not think that they are going to contend for super bowl championship. But you know if this offense moved the ball you know and you're really desperate for quarterback if your quarterback situation is messed up and you can deal with injuries or by weeks you somehow drafted people that have the same bye weeks or whatever you know he could be a guy that want to pick up and you know depending on what the match are busy could have a good matchup and he can do for you for that one week that he decided to pick them up. I don't know what preseason you don't overreact. I understand that. But i think you know what he did in the preseason game against the packers i think is encouraging and you know what i think that gives fantasy managers more confidence moving forward in case they want to draft him. And then i guess you know. We'll talk about justin fields. You know His performance against the bills when nine of nineteen eighty yards. And he for forty six yards. So definitely did not put up a performance like he did in his first preseason game he took a vicious head. Tell mc aim off. It looked very very bad. It looked worse than it actually was because it was clean hit. It wasn't i thought he took a vicious helmet-to-helmet head. But it was you know it was kind of just a crazy. I mean obviously when the helmet comes off you know you think the worst Because it just happened so fast but east fine and you know going forward. We'll see what happens with this quarterback situation. Obviously you know if you drafted this guy like aydin dynasty leagues. Were really just. You did not like seeing that. But he's okay and we'll see what happens. Moving forward because andy dolan looking at his stat line. Yesterday he went eleven to seventeen hundred. Forty six yards one touchdown. One interception the touchdown pass was seventy three yards to rodney adams. It was a nice throat. A nice catch on even better. Catch those kind of the highlight play for the bears offense against the bills. And you know. Andy dalton he's going to be the starter at least for the first couple of games of the season when the season starts. And you know what. I think that he could definitely win some games for the bears. But i just don't think the bears are going to really contend for anything this year i think ultimately you know he's going to be kind of on a short leash if he just doesn't play well justin fields. It's gonna get put in especially because of how justin fields played in that. First game obviously didn't light it up like he. Did you know in the first game in this. Second preseason game. But i think he's going to eventually see the field. At some point i think before the mid point of the year but you know what dolan's got a big arm and i definitely do think that you know i think the offensive line is kind of a concern for the bears but if the lincoln hold up they do have some weapons. There you know. Dalton can win them a few games especially because they do have that defense behind them to. It's not what it was back in two thousand eighteen. But i still think that you know i. It's respectable but we'll just have to wait and see and obviously when it comes to fantasy. you know. Probably draft andy dolan justin fields and irregular leagues. If you know you wanna get justin feels on your team because you know. I think it makes the most logical sense you know. I mean if you have four quarterbacks on your team obviously that's a little crowded but you know in situations like that you do want to you know. Have those two guys on your team because justin feels is eventually going to start and then kind of crazy thing you know You had mitchell trubisky going twenty or twenty two hundred twenty one yards and a touchdown. He looks like a whole new quarterback. Now obviously you know it's preseason but hey could he take. Josh could overtake josh allen for that number one spot the answer is no but hey you know what. It's something encouraging for the bills. You know if you know in case. Josh allen does go down they have a decent backup in case. Josh allen does get hurt but yeah. That's what i wanted to talk about. What the bills bears game another game that i wanted to get into so the dolphins one. Thirty seven. To seventeen over the falcons to a chunk of low as sixteen twenty three hundred eighty three yards and a touchdown and that's encouraging you know that is encouraging there. Were no turnovers in this game. Obviously yes atlanta's defense. Isn't that good but still. I think that this was a good performance for to a could definitely build up confidence for moving forward and maybe build up some confidence for some fantasy managers. If any you know. I mean. I think what the ray of weapons that he has it his disposal he can definitely you know. Be good this year. it's just. He's got put altogether. And obviously you know he's coming off the hip surgery on another removed from that. He is going to be a guy that is going to get drafted be that. Qb three on a lot of teams. I think obviously if he has a good matchup he will be put into starting lineups. But you really got to pick and choose. What is a solid matchup for to a and something to watch out for jacoby perset. Eight ninety nine yards a touchdown as well in this preseason game i think that if two struggles really badly jacoby second find his way into being the starting quarterback for the dolphins so i think he is definitely somebody to keep tabs on in case to a does really struggle because i think jacoby can do well if he is the starter for the dolphins because they because of the weapons you know i i just think he could do on. I think he's proven that he's one games in this league in the nfl. And i think that if tewodros struggle he is a good backup for this team so we'll have to see how that whole situation shapes out but it's something interesting to keep an eye on because again to a struggles jacoby perset could get put in. So let's see what happens with that situation so another game that i wanted to focus on and talk about a little bit. The pittsburgh steelers winning twenty six or twenty. I just got to say ben rothlisberger. I knows against it was against the lions and the lines aren't very good. But i was very encouraged with what i saw from ben rothlisberger throwing two touchdowns to their rookie draft choice. They're tight end at penn state. Pat fry amer. He looked pretty good. Looks like red zone weapon for the team and heads another dimension to the scene. Because obviously events darnold and eric ibran last year we thought that was gonna be a deadly tight end combination and really just did not pan out Vance mcdonald did retire. Eric ibran will see what happens this year. But i was very impressed with ben rothlisberger. I really was look very comfortable. Had some zip on his throws now. Obviously there's gonna be some wear and tear throughout the season and he could definitely i mean obviously it looks good now but we could maybe see something similar to last year where offense kinda cooled off and one of the things i was saying i was watching the game. Was you gotta stop the dink dunk stuff. Because you're not going to win football games with that and right after. I said that he threw a fifty yard bombs at the auntie johnson so if the steelers get back to throwing the ball deep ben has time to throw. They're going to have a good season. I think the defense is gonna do. Well i worry a little bit about the secondary but obviously they got making fitzpatrick back. There and joe haden older you know. He's an older player now. But i think he's still serviceable for this team. But i really liked what i saw from the steelers yesterday. And they're going to have it running game. I liked what i saw from. Nause harris even though wasn't you know it was a small sample size. Did only have four rushing attempts for ten yards but did have a big play later on in the game to receptions for fifty three yards finished with. I was overall impressed with the steelers performance against the lions. And i think really. This season is going to hinder upon the offensive line of the steelers. The steelers o. Line is able to protect ben rothlisberger. Zeal to be good in the run blocking you know. This team is going to be good. And i think ben kind of maybe raises fantasy stock a little bit with his performance. You know. obviously he's not going to be the quarterback that he was four or five years ago. Nobody expects them to be like that. But i do think that this performance does increases fantasy stock just bid because he had zip on the ball. He looked comfortable again. It was against the lions. Who aren't really a good team. But still i just think that. What i saw yesterday can definitely translate over to the regular season. Maybe the steelers are going to be better than we expect. Offensively you know they just gotta stick to throw the ball downfield and i think they had receivers for that chase klay pool. I don't believe played yesterday. So when he comes back you got him. You got the andre. Johnson you got juju and these guys can be quality fantasy wide receivers. Obviously i think klay pools the best then deontay johnson and then jew but i think these guys can do well if the offensive line's able to hold up protect ben. This offense is going to be good. And i think ben rothlisberger definitely could be a guy that maybe wanna have on your team. You know as a backup. Quarterback is like your. Qb three because you know he can put up good numbers. It's just. I think it really all depends on how the offensive line is this year. But what i saw in the lions game. I definitely think decreases a little bit of a concern that we may have had going into the season with the steelers offense and also the run blocking is good ninety harris definitely poised to have a really big season and he might be a guy that i might wanna get in my regularly because i have the number one overall pick. I talked about it a little bit. I've one overall pick and then on the wrap around you know is now z. Harris can be my rb to because he could definitely to me at that spot so we'll just have to wait and see but i like what i saw. I like what i saw from. Ben i think the steelers offense you know is going to be good if the offensive line is able to hold up and protect ben rothlisberger and they have to go back to what they do. Best and that is throwing the ball down the field. I'm not saying like fifty times but do it enough where you know. The defense has to prepare a little bit. And they're not looking for the dinkins. Dunk stuff that the steelers did last year. But you know we'll have to wait and see like i said i'm very encouraged with what i saw from the steelers in the game against the lions so one of the other games that i wanted to talk about in probably the last one. I'm going to talk about. Unless i wanna squeeze in at least one more but the one i want to definitely talk about is the broncos and the seahawks game so the broncos won thirty three over the sea hawks and both quarterbacks played well a and also played to teddy bridgewater went nine of eleven hundred five yards and a touchdown drew lock nine fourteen for eighty yards no touchdowns and then brought rippin. He was three or three thirty. One yards touchdown. So you know right now. This competition is very Very close You know both quarterbacks for the most part i think are doing well and i think that this another scenario. It's i mean it's a little bit different than the andy dalton and justin fields situation. But i think that if you're about to do your draft and maybe one of these guys you're looking to get. I think you try to get both of them. Because we don't really know who the star is going to be. I think right. Now it's close. I mean that's really from what i'm seeing. They both i making it hard on the fangio to you. Know make determine who the star is going to be you know they are both playing well in the preseason and you know i think it's really just one of those situations again you know if they are both available and you wanna take a chance on one of these quarterbacks. I think you draft them. I think these guys are probably going to go. In the later rounds. I mean these are not guys that you wanna you know overdraft and reach for because they will definitely be there in the later rounds you know it just because if you're if you're drafting right now you're better off taking both of them. Unfortunately yes you'll be you kind of wasting a spot because you know you might want to. You know get some other position you know. Maybe he'd get another running back receiver something like that but you know. I think this is kind of a situation. Where you have these guys that you know you don't necessarily know who the star is gonna be you take both of them and whoever the starter is you just dropped the other one. I guess unless you know an injury happens or something but you can't really predict injuries. You know you can only predict. I guess you know who's going to be named the starter but some of these other broncos players you got devante williams the rookie that they drafted k. J. handler jerry. Judy these guys. I think they're fantasy. Stock is up there especially. I've been very impressed with k j handler. I think he's definitely a guy that could be a high waiver wire pick-up also in dynasty leagues. He's definitely a guy that you would want to have on your team. Moving forward jerry judy as well you know i mean. He was definitely frustrated with how he was last year with. The inconsistent quarterback play. But you know these guys are young and this denver teams pretty good on paper. They got a lot of young weapons. And i feel like this defense could definitely be really good this year and this could be defensive pickup and or draft in fantasy leagues. I could definitely see that you know so. I'm really impressed with what the broncos have been able to do you know. I think they could definitely because last year. I thought they were going to be a playoff team and they obviously weren't. Maybe this is the year they break through and they are a playoff team again. I mean we got to see what they do at the quarterback position. I liked the weapons that they have on their team. I do. i think you know either way just whether it's drew lock whether it's teddy bridgewater. I do think that these weapons will be able to produce. I mean obviously jerry. Judy was frustrated with last year. Which is the quarterback but maybe drew lock is motivated. Because he doesn't want his job taken away by teddy bridgewater. Obviously i think drew lock is the better armed talent but teddy bridgewater i think is more efficient. I guess so. We're just gonna have to wait. And see but i like this denver team. I really think agent handler is a guy that you might want to keep tabs on. You know he may be looking to have a big year. It's been having a good preseason so far so we're just gonna have to wait and see and i guess we'll squeeze in one more game. I said i wasn't going to squeeze in one more game so the colts beat the vikings twelve to ten. And you had jacob and sam l. linger. Obviously they're kind of fighting for. I guess the starting job but Now it's being reported that carson wentz and quinn nelson are supposed to be coming back and when i say that i mean they're actually supposed to be coming back to practice like very soon. They're going to start practicing. Which is crazy because it seemed like. They weren't going to be back anytime soon. And now they are so you got etlinger. You got easson. You know i mean who's it going to be. I think as of right now. I think he's going to be the starter you look at their stats eastern with sixteen twenty seven hundred thirty two yards no touchdowns no interceptions etlinger. Eight to thirteen seventy yards to t- To interception sorry no touchdowns two interceptions. So i mean i guess right now eastern kinda is a leg up on etlinger but we'll have to wait and see on that but you know of carson wentz is able to play week one and quinn nelson. That is huge for this team because this cold team definitely has you know super bowl aspirations but i guess you know whoever the starter is i mean i guess you take them in the later rounds. Obviously with dynasty is a little different. Maybe you do you know. Pick one of them upper draft him of course. But you know it. Those guys you know regularly. They're going to be in the late around. They'll be available if you're waiting very long on drafting a quarterback but yeah that's kind of all the games i wanted to get through. There was a couple that i didn't get to. But yeah those are the games that i wanted to get to. Rookie quarterback stary playing. Well you know you got some of the Second year guys. That are trying to do. Well some veterans that are trying to recapture some of the old glory from glory days. You know so. There's a lot of. There's a lot of story lines going into this. Nfl season. you know. There's definitely players that you gotta keep an eye on. You know guys you know could be sleepers. You know going into your drafts. If you haven't started driving at but there are so many drafts that have been underway. And you know. We're i got a couple more drafts that i'm looking forward to in the coming weeks so a lot of stuff is coming up very soon and i cannot wait for football season to start. I'm gonna keep saying it you know because it's just it's almost here and the start of the season a couple of weeks already. It's it's incredible. So yeah that was the first segment that is the Preseason week to recap so we're gonna take our first break of the show when we come back. I'm gonna talk about the injuries that have happened so far and we'll talk about how that impacts your fantasy draft. How does that impact your teams if you already have draft and you have some of these players on your team. We'll get into all that after the break so stick around we'll be right back here on the mc fantasy football podcast. Are you looking for the very best nfl and college football podcast.

We're gonna talk about the injuries that happened over the course of the last week and a half and talk about how that impacts your fantasy team your draft strategy and stuff like that so. Let's get into some of these injuries. So i'm looking at the sleeper app. Which is one of the fantasy football sites. It's like the new the newest one. I guess I've i've done now to drafts on it. My to dynasty drafts. And i'm going to be doing one of my other leagues on there as well and i'm looking at it because in my week one matchup. I'm playing my friend. And he's got a bunch of questionable ables in his lineup. Somebody go through each one and talk about the significance of that. So one of them is clyde would solaire so he suffered an ankle sprain. He likely avoided ohio constrain. As i'm looking at the description which is good. This is the running back for the kansas city chiefs and a lot of people are very high on a and one of the things i noticed in the preseason game i didn't talk about the chiefs and the cardinals preseason game what i noticed is that the chiefs were trying to run the football a lot. That's one of the things i notice. And you know what. I feel like with the offensive line of the chiefs. I feel like the running game could definitely be successful because of the changes that they made in the additions that they made. I think the offensive line was definitely addressed in the off season by the chiefs and it was their biggest weakness in the super bowl. You saw that. I saw it. You know from first. Snap of the game when homes running for his life early. I knew that this was gonna be a long game and the cheaper going to struggle and they did they really did struggle and i felt like if they ran the ball a little bit more. Maybe it would have been a different outcome but they did. And and here we are but edward solaire is a guy that a lot of people are very high on with the people that i do. Drafting with for the most part they. They're not as high edwardsville solaire as a lot of these other people take talk. I see a bunch of people saying how high they are on clyde edward solaire and then i talked to my friends and then like don't think he's that good at all really and i'm kind of in the middle because he isn't a power back. Okay that i understand you know. My friends was talking about how he's gotten stopped at the goal line. And but i just look at the offensive line for the chiefs. And i just feel like that can definitely help edward solaire in the running game and i don't know i'm kind of in the middle without but edwards hilar- being injured. I think he definitely will know i already. His fancy stock. I think was lower than it was last year. But i i definitely do think that he's a guy that maybe you wanna wait on. Don't reach on him especially if he's not ready for the regular season people are drafting him in the third fourth round. I feel like he can definitely go later than that. Just because the listen. The chiefs loved to throw the ball. That's really the main reason why you know. Drafting a running back on the chiefs as a little questionable is because the chiefs throw the football. That's what they love to do. They loved their own. at deep. you know homes store and a calc- of course you know running the is like the second fiddle to the passing game for the chiefs. So that's another reason why you know. Maybe you don't wanna take a chance on drafting edwards hilar- you know so early. But that's what people decided to do. And now that he's injured. He's not ready for the regular season. I think you definitely want to wait a little bit on him. Obviously if you have him on your team you know. Maybe look at the backups. For the chiefs. Like daryl williams guys like that they also did bring in jerick mckinnon. Who was you know. I i would say. It was pretty productive for the forty niners last year. So maybe he's another option. In case edwards layer is out for an extended period of time. Especially if you know carries over to the regular season so you do have some options especially if he is your number two running back again. It stinks but that's one of the injuries that has happened already. Again he avoided a high ankle sprain. So that's good but we'll have to wait and see what happens with that. Also talk about dak prescott so he is dealing with that shoulder injury but says he looked sharp in in the workout on saturday completing fifty one fifty two passes during a workout. So you know what i mean. There's a lot of mixed reports on. Is he gonna play. This season is not going to play. I mean i feel like he is going to play. I feel like if he wasn't practicing at all and you just never saw him. I think that would be a problem. That would definitely raise some red flags and maybe he doesn't play but i feel like if he's sharp and he's throwing the football and he i mean he threw it fifty two times. It said you know that definitely means that he's on track to play at some point. If it's not at the start of the season it's definitely going to be. You know maybe a two weeks or three weeks into the season or something like that. But i think he is going to play week one. I think that you know unless we hear something else. I feel like he is on track. The thing that i'm worried about is that he's going up against the buccaneers week one. That is a problem because those are the world champions. They're going to have. They have a really good front seven. They've a great front seven they have probably arguably the best front seven in the nfl. They're gonna have an improved. David improve secondary okay. The young guys are definitely going to be better than they were last year. They played better in the postseason. This defense is lethal. And now you're going to be going up against dak prescott who you know. Hasn't seen game action really since week. Five when he got hurt last year and he's definitely going to be a little nervous. A little skittish in the pocket. You know he doesn't want to get hit you know and this defense is really not gonna care. So it's going to be a tough match of week. One for dak prescott. So hopefully he's healthy and he's ready to go. It seems like he's ready but you know he's still listed as questionable so we'll see what happens with that so also some other injuries. So odell beckham junior. He still dealing with that knee injury. Obviously coming back from the acl tear. you know. he's still recovering and all that is obviously going to play this year. As long as there's no or anything like that but it is something to keep an eye on definitely a guy that has seen a dip in fantasy Fantasy stock since his rookie season. You know obviously has not been consistent like he was you know his first couple of years in the nfl You know is a guy that could definitely be a flex option but you probably want to wait on him. Because i feel like with the browns. They were better without him. So it's gonna be kind of weird to see how he you know reinsert himself into certain lineups and also kind of go go back on dak prescott. He's still going to be a qb one in fantasy. He is going to put a massive numbers this year. If he's healthy he's got the weapons forward if the offensive line is healthy. And of course. Zeke is going to be back as well. You know dak is going to have a good season. I don't think there's any question about it as long as he's healthy In terms of fantasy. I think he's going to have a really good season We'll see what happens with everything else. But i think he'll put massive numbers definitely a guy that could be one. Of course it all just depends on the injuries so moving onto other injuries going through my friends starting lineup. So dj moore is also questionable. He is dealing with a back injury but this may only keep him out of just the preseason he should be available week one and you know he's another guy that i think it's still do good. Of course would sam darnold now is. The new quarterback obviously had a solid season last year. He was a guy that i traded for in the middle of the season last year. Because i need some help with running backs. And he was also part of the deal and he was solid from me. I have to say he was solid. And it's going to be interesting to see how he is with sam darnold but one of the things that you know i. I've noticed in these preseason games as terrence marshall the guy that receiver that they drafted the panthers. He's been balling out in the preseason. I definitely think he could be a guy that takes away some targets away from dj more and robbie anderson but i think if dj more this is something that's going to keep him out of the regular of any regular season games. I think he's still gets drafted around where he should be drafted. You know the fifth or sixth round. I guess maybe the fourth round you know he's going to be he's going to be a productive receiver for carolina and it's going to be interesting to see how he is with sam darnold so nothing to concerning with dj more but moving onto mark andrews. Tight end for the ravens. He had to leave. Practice with severe cramps actually had to be put in an ambulance so very scary situation there. He collapsed and yeah. That is a very scary situation. Hopefully everything's alright. It seems like everything's okay. You know was very dehydrated so hopefully everything's alright with that definitely doesn't seem like that's going to be something that you know will cause him to miss regular season action but still a very scary situation for mark andrews and hopefully. Everything's all right with him. Obviously he's a guy that's a top ten fantasy tight end a guy Lamar jackson trusts lot. It's a security blanket. I think he's the most consistent option when throwing the football for lamar jackson on this team. And you know he's definitely going to be a guy that's a top fantasy tight end taken off the board you know especially in the fourth fifth round around that time i would assume you know is productive fantasy tight end and you know. I think this is obviously scary situation. But i don't think that this is something that's going to impact his week one status. At least that's not what it says. so yes very scary situation but i think he's all right. There's nothing to worry about. He's going to be ready for week. One action so also who's questionable kirtland sautin so he He's gonna be scheduled to play the final preseason game week. Three for the broncos. Obviously he's coming back from the acl tear that he suffered last year. So this isn't really anything that is to concerning. They're just being precautionary with his injury that he is coming back from so again. This is just for precautionary reasons as to why he's being held out until week three when he supposed to play in the preseason and cortlandt sought and he's a guy that is kind of like a you know fourth fifth round pick. You know definitely could maybe go in. The third round is well you know when he plays. He is a solid wide receiver. And i think he definitely proved that obviously last year he dealt with they see l. Teheran we too so really did not have an impact on the field last year. Really at all but when he has played he has been a really good wide receiver. And you know he's a guy that could definitely have a big year. I love the broncos receiving core. He's back healthy. You know advanced into that. The tight end. And you've got the running backs to broncos. Seem is can have a really good year. But we're just gonna have to wait and see what the quarterback situation how that pans out so other guys that are dealing with some injuries. We got the andrea swift. The running back for the detroit lions. He is dealing with a groin injury and he did not play against the steelers and this is going to be something to keep an eye on. There really isn't any update. I think on whether or not how serious this injury can be. I do think that if you do have the andrea swift on your team. It is very important that you go out and you try to get them all williams you know if you have not drafted him if he's on the waiver wires in your leagues and also if you still haven't done your draft yet and you wanna get swift. Try to get jamal williams as well because schmo williams is pretty good running back to and if swift is out you know jamal williams definitely put up some good numbers and this offensive line for the line's supposed to be improved. And hopefully it is. I mean they went out and they draft a penny stool you know. And hopefully jared goff plays well because that'll definitely help. You know the running back situation as well but swift injury is something to keep an eye on. This is a guy that can definitely go in the third fourth round. He's projected really have a big season in. Oh and there's not a lot of weapons on this detroit. Lions offense so he's definitely a guy that has looked at to have a good season so this is definitely something to keep an eye on. Obviously if he misses week one you know if he misses verse like one or two weeks of the season. That's not a huge concern. If that if it gets to that point of course. I think you still try to draft him where he's projected to go. Obviously you need to have a backup plan in case you know. He doesn't play right away. But you know. I i think if he does come back and he plays week one. You know he's gonna be productive player definitely receiving back. You know a guy that is definitely going to. Have you know a good season especially with there. Not being a lot of weapons on this. You know detroit. Lions offense easy looked at to have a big year. So he's another guy also. Dj charkhi was dealing with a finger injury. So i think that's something that's not too concerning. Obviously you know the the jaguars. They have a new quarterback trevor lawrence. That will be throwing the football to dj charging dj. Shark did not have a great season last year. So he's looking to have a bounceback season. There's going to be more competition for weapons. They brought him more of jones and obviously chenault. He's coming off of a decent rookie season. So you know. Trump is going to have to fight for you know fiber targets and you know i think he will still have a good season. He's just gotta be healthy. I think trevor lawrence slow provide stability at that position. Because obviously you had j. gluten and mike glennon and garner menchu playing all season. And they're just was just so many quarterbacks coming out and starting it was just. It was a mess. The situation in jacksonville last year. The particularly at the quarterback spot. So you know charge. I think we'll definitely get that consistent. Qb play that. I think he needs and that the other receivers need to have a good season so dj chart. I definitely think is fantasy. Stock is going to be down this year. But i do think that he will have a better season than he did last year. Obviously again. we're fight in targets. But i think he'll do better than last year. And you know. I think you probably get him. You know somewhere. In the mid late rounds like the sixth or the eighth round between the. That's probably a good range for dj chart. But he's just another guy. Keep an eye on when you're talking about injuries and other guys markey's brown. He's dealing with a hamstring injury. But he's going to be returning to practice so again that's not something to be concerned about. I guess as of right now. I don't really know what to make this ravens wide receiver situation. Because you have markey's brown you have bateman. Bateman is actually hurt. so now sammy watkins. Really you know the only healthy wide receiver which is kinda crazy. Because he's usually the guy that's injured but you know mark brown. I think definitely can have a better season than he did last year. Because now you have more weapons around lamar jackson so i think that definitely will help him. I mean we just got hope that everybody stays healthy. That's the main thing but you know markey's brown coming back from injury. I think that definitely will help out the cause for the ravens offense and like i said i think if the weapons are healthy in. I think that you know the ravens. They can do all right. I mean obviously. They're going to be running the football a lot more than they are going to be throwing it. But i think having more weapons around lamar jackson will definitely help the passing attack. But reshad bateman. He's another guy. His recovery is going to last six to eight weeks and this is because of a core muscle injury that he sustained and he had surgery on that so he's going to be out six to eight weeks and that's a huge blow for this offense because now yeah you got markey's brown and you got sammy. Watkins the ravens. They might have to look and try to you. Know maybe bring in some other wide receivers because definitely their situation in a with bateman was gonna look a lot better than you know. Willie snead dez bryant Last year but you know i. It's it's unfortunate you know. This was their rookie draft choice. And now he's going to be out for an extended period of time so that does hurt the passing attack. You know so. hopefully sammy. Watkins stays healthy and markey. Sprung comes back from his injury and he's healthy and you know. Obviously i just talked about mark. Andrews was dealing with the severe cramps. So you know. The receiving core is a little banged up right now. So that's you know not good but you know if guys come back healthy. They're passing tax. Should be better but yeah. That's kind of with all the injuries. I think i kinda you know went through the main ones as of right now one that kind of impacts this fantasy defense because i think the defense could be pretty good except the secondary the jets defense carl lawson who was lighting it up in camp for the jets. He ruptured his achilles. He's gonna miss the toll twenty twenty one. Nfl season which is a huge boca's. I actually really like jets front. I thought this front four is going to be underrated. And maybe the jets defense is a defense that maybe you'd wanna pick up fantasy. Except you know you'd have to deal with the fact that there're quarterback situation isn't that good but that's a huge blow to the jets defense. Um they were really. I really liked the jets. The jets defense on paper. You had rankings. You brought him. In from the saints quinton williams lawson was doing really well. Moseley's coming back. I mean that front seven was going to be pretty good and they do have pretty good safeties. Really the weakness on that defense is the corners. That's really what the weaknesses on that defense. But you know it's just it's just very unfortunate with what happened with that. And hopefully carlos and comes back next year and he's healthy and he's ready to go but that's just a huge blow for the jets. Defensive jets always seemed to get like a huge injury in the preseason had avery williamson the linebacker from a couple years ago. He detour something in his knee or something and he missed the whole season. He was supposed to be like the captain of the defense. It's just unfortunate that the jets always have to deal with these kinds of injuries. But yeah that's really what. I want to talk about the injuries. You know i guess the jets defense are kinda like that streamer defense though. It wasn't really a defense that you wanna get. But it's just a defense that i can look at and i said maybe they could be good this year If they figure out the cornerback situation but yeah. Those are the injuries that i wanted to touch upon. Really what you gotta do is if you have a guy that's dealing with an injury if you know that he's going to be out for an extended period of time and you're about to draft gotta make sure to draft the backup to that player because you know if it's an extended period of time and you don't have this player for awhile it's important. You have the depth option and you have a guy from that team. That's filling in for your player. Gonna make sure you have those guys on your team. Because you know the de'andre swift situation. Jamal williams is a guy that you would definitely want to get because they were kinda looked being looked at as you know two guys that are going to of split carries a little bit Obviously swift as the number one back. But you know jamal. Williams spent all that time in green bay splint carries with aaron jones. So he kinda knows his role. I guess on detroit. And then you look at other situations. Like the clyde. Edward solaire situation. Obviously i don't expect people to draft daryl williams and jerry mckinnon. You know it depends on how deep your league is. But i don't expect people to do that. So if you have already done your draft. And clyde edward selena was running back and he's dealing with the injury and you don't know how long he's going to be out four. Try to get daryl williams or german or wherever else the ryan but the running back situation as i think. Those are the only other two. Unless i'm missing somebody else. They don't leave you on is not on the team anymore but yeah that that's really what you have to do. You gotta make sure that if you're in the process of drafting you try to draft their backups. You know insurance policies. You know especially when you got guys like you know the ravens with jake. Dobbins and gus edwards. You try to get jay. And then you get gus edwards. Because that's what happened in my my second dynasty draft is i got gus edwards very late surprising and i completely forgot about you know gus edwards and now it's like you don't want i should probably get him because he is jake as backup i'm. Jk does get hurt. He's gonna get the bulk of the carries so you just got to be mindful those things because injuries are going to happen. And i think one of the most important things is. I know i've mentioned it on previous shows. You wanna wait till you know the latest to draft. You don't want to draft too early. Obviously drafting early is very exciting. And you know it's very fun to draft and all that. But i think you have to value waiting as long as you can to draft over drafting too soon. Because you're going to deal with these injuries and then you're going to be freaking out on what you wanna do. You know making trades already in the season even started yet and you gotta make sure you have good depth behind your main guys. Because then you're going to be you know a mess. Your team's going to be a mess and you don't want that and you don't want have to go out and make trades already before the season starts but you know you can't predict injuries. That's the unfortunate thing and unfortunately when it comes to football injuries are bound to happen. So yeah those were The injuries that i wanted to talk about how the impact your team you know and all that stuff so yeah that is the second segment of the show. So we're gonna take another quick break when we come back. I will do a schedule. Outlook on the cleveland browns and talk about the favorable and unfavorable matchups on their schedule.

I and we're back here on the gmc fantasy football podcast for the third segment of today's show. We're going to do a schedule. Outlook on the cleveland browns and talking about the favorable and unfavorable matchups on schedule. So let's get right into their schedule. So they opened up the season in arrowhead against the kansas city chiefs and this is the rematch of the division around the playoffs last year and the browns unfortunately for them lost that game to the hands of chad henny and his heroics in that game so looking at their matchup against the cheese. I do think that it's a favorable match up here for the browns. Believe it or not. I do think that they can move the ball against us defense. And i think they're definitely gonna wanna prove something to a lot of people. I do think that this brown's team can win the afc north this year. So i'm going to say this affair will match up here for the browns. I do think this good game for the running backs. Kareem hunt and nick shabu. Both i think played well in that game against the chiefs while trump had a little bit of a rough first half but he got going. I believe kareem hunt scored in that game as well. I do think bakery could do. Well here receivers. They could do okay. It's a hostile environment of course I definitely do think you know. The browns defense is going to be improved. But i think going up against this chiefs offense with patrick mahomes and company in that. You know that offense. You know tyreek hill travis. Kelsey it's going to be tough for the defense. So i think it's unfair will match defense but i do think it's available matchup for the browns offense so i think you know if you've got browns players i think you start them against the chiefs so moving onto the next match up on the brown schedule week number. Two the houston. Texans come to town to take on the browns. I think this is a very fair will match up across the board for the browns. I think you start. Whoever you want against the texans. This week i think baker has a good game here. I think the running backs go wild in this game. I don't think the texans are good team. If the shawn watson plays. It's obvious a little obviously a little different. But i do think that overall the texans are not going to be a good team. If shawn watson definitely doesn't play. I think you do start the browns defense and again i think offensively. The browns are going to go off in this game against the texans because they are not a very good team. So that's my thoughts on that game moving onto week number three you got the chicago. Bears coming to town to take on the browns. I think this is kind of a middle of the road matchup here. I think the offense can kind of struggle a little bit against this bears defense. I don't know that's just me. I think they will be able to move the ball. I just feel like they're it's going to be a little bit of a struggle for this browns off. And so i think it's kind of middle of the road match up here for the browns. I do think defensively. I think the browns defense could do okay against the bears offense. You know it all depends on who's playing quarterback and how the quarterback position is being played. If andy dolan's playing well might be a little bit of a struggle. But i think that the browns defense is going to be improved enough where they are going to be able to stop that bears offense but offensively for the browns. I think it's kind of like a middle of the road. Because you still got to respect the playmakers on the bears defense. So i gotta have to pick and choose a little bit who you wanna start particularly with the receivers you know as well and even the tight end you know with hooper and brian and the jokue. I do think if you really do start tight end from the browns. It's going to be hooper because of the touchdown dependency for him because he's red zone target. Obviously brian's kind of that third tight end and then you know still kind of you know a no-man's-land in this offense is talented but really is never kinda you know. There's like he's trying. He's trying to find a role with this team. He just i dunno just can't seem to find it but as my thoughts on that game so moving onto week four. The browns go to minnesota to take on the vikings. I think this is gonna be a tough match up here for the browns. Because i do think that the vikings defense is going to be improved. I think that you know with the crowd noise. That's going to be a problem. I think the running game is gonna struggle here. I think baker might struggle a little bit here. Though i mean i think it really all depends on what the defensive backs do for the vikings if the secondary is not good i think baker will be able to move the ball. Also you gotta deal with the linebackers as well. Eric hendricks anthony barr. Those guys you gotta watch out for those playmakers you know on this defense still pass. Rush is going to be an issue for baker. I mean as long as the offensive line holds up to you. Know the offensive line for the browns. That's key in the game. And how are the receivers going to match up against the defensive backs. I think that's really what's going to determine the outcome of this game. So i think it's a tough match appear I think it might be struggle for the running game. Because i like the vikings did upfront. Bring in guys like alvin tomlinson and bring back sheldon. Richardson it's going to be a little bit of a problem for this browns offense and then on the other side browns defense going up against kirk cousins and that offense. I think it might be a little bit of a problem. You know but we'll have to see It's gonna be an interesting game though in week. Four when these two teams meet so moving onto week number five. The browns go to l. a. To take on the chargers. I think this is a favorable match. Appear for the browns. I i think the chargers defense will be better. But i do think they'll be able to run the football. I think that you know the secondary might be a little bit of a problem. Depending on how secondary for the charges playing drafting. Asante samuel junior. You know you have when james coming back so that might be a little bit of a problem. But i think the browns could do okay and they'll be able to move the ball year defensively. I think you look for other options. I think herbertson put up some points. I think this chargers offense is going to be very explosive again. This year and herbert is gonna look to do even better than he did. His rookie season so moving onto weak numbers six. The browns take on the cardinals. The cardinals come to town last time. These two teams met was back in glendale and the cardinals won pretty handily against the browns. I was back when the browns everybody thought they were gonna go to the super bowl and they did absolutely nothing back in two thousand nineteen but now they are legit team. There are much different team more disciplined this time around and i think they will do very well in this match up because i don't think the cardinals defense is going to be dominant. I think that the browns are going to be able to move the ball against his cardinals. Defense and i think they'll do well here so i think you should feel comfortable in starting browns players this week Weeks six then on the other side of the ball. I think you probably look for other options. Because i do think the cardinals offense is going to be pretty good this year. I think they're going to be better than they were last year. You know the andre hopkins in year two of this system. I think highly murray does well here. So i expect them to be better this year. So probably look for other options. If you're you know debating on whether or not to start the browns defense or maybe even pick them up that week moving onto week number seven thursday night football you got the browns taking on the broncos and you know this is a home game for the brown so i do think that helps them out. I'm gonna say because they're at home. I think it is going to be a favorable match. But i do think that it's going to be a little bit of a struggle because i feel like the broncos defense is going to be pretty good this year. Judging by what they've done in the preseason i know it's preseason but you know they got guys coming back. They got some young guys on this defense. I just feel like the defense is going to be good this year. I don't know so. I think it might be a little bit of a struggle for this brown's offense but i do think that they'll get they'll get going the of a decent game. I don't expect anybody to put a massive numbers in this game on the browns side. And then defensively. I think you probably can start the browns defense. You know i mean. I think they could definitely get some turnovers. Get some sacks against this. You know broncos offensive line and get to teddy bridgewater and gets a drew lock. These guys aren't the most mobile quarterback. Sega definitely move around a little bit. But i do think that the browns defense definitely get some points and get some turnovers in this game so we'll just have to wait and see but that's my thoughts on that week. Seven matchup so moving onto week number eight at the pittsburgh steelers come into town and obviously last year unless you're living under a rock. The browns beat the steelers and eliminated them in the playoffs last year. In the wildcard round in a very interesting game a very strange game that you know the listen. The browns were the better team. They were the better team. And i do think that the steelers on halloween. I do think the steelers are going to be prepared for this game. I think they are going to want revenge for that embarrassing playoff loss last year and i feel like the defense is going to play well for the steelers so i do think it's going to be a little bit of a struggle for baker and company. I don't expect anybody really to go off in this game. Offensively again for the browns. I think the running game is going to struggle. I think the steelers are going to be ready for this match up now on the other side. I think the browns defense can do all right against ben rothlisberger in this offense because you know what i think it really all depends on the offensive line of the steelers of the offensive line is not able to protect ben. It's gonna be a long afternoon for him so you really got to see how the offensive line for the steelers is playing. I think during the year over the course of the you know the first seven weeks of the year and then you determine whether or not you'd wanna start the browns defense against the steelers. I think you know the browns regardless if the offensive line for the steelers is doing well or not. I think maybe you could make the argument. You could start them. Because i do think they are going to be a good unit this year but again another wait and see approach so those are my thoughts on the week. Eight matchups moving onto week nine. They go to take on the bengals in cincinnati and the to match ups last year were shootouts so i think maybe you look for other options defensively for the browns unless you know if they prove that they are a much better unit this year. Then maybe you start him. But you know. Joe borough in that offense that they could be just as good as this browns offense. I do think because the bengals defense is probably not that good You know they did. Make some additions. But i do think that the bengals defense is still kind of ways away from being like a really good defense solid unit. So i think with the browns offense coming in. I think they'll be able to put up points. you know. i think the running game does well. The receivers do well. Baker does well. Beggared has done really good against the bengals over the course of his young career so i do expect them to do more of the same here in this match up so i say it's a farewell match appear for the browns moving onto week number ten. They go to take on the patriots in new england is the one o'clock game on cbs. And i think this is an unfair will match up here. I think the patriots are going to be a better team this year. Their defense is going to be better. They're just overall going to be a better team now. Defensively i think that the browns you know maybe can kinda minimize the damage of this patriots. Offense a little bit to an extent. So maybe you debate on whether or not to start them. Probably look for other options. But yeah i think the patriots defense could definitely kinda shut down. This brown's offense a little bit I think they could shut down the running game a little bit here. so yeah. maybe you know if you've got some guys that you're debating on whether or not to start maybe you probably don't start him. I think this could be a bad game for baker. But i do think in week eleven. They'll have a nice rebound. They take on the lion's as a home game. I think they'll be able to put up a of points here. This lines team is not going to be that good this year. They're in rebuild mode. I think the browns offense does really well here defensively. I think you could probably start the browns defense as well. You know unless you know gotta look at the offensive line seattle Golf is doing you know for the lines. I mean i think regardless you probably still start the browns defense. You know because the line's really don't have a lot of weapons. So i think this is a very will match up here week. Eleven for the browns. This is a rebound game. After you know what. I just said about the patriots matchup in week ten so moving onto week twelve however i don't think this is a favorable matchup and this is where the browns go to baltimore to take on the ravens a sunday night football game. I think this is an unfavorable match for the browns. You know last year. They got absolutely demolished against the ravens in week. One in baltimore and this was without a crowd. Now you've got a crowd for this game. I think it's going to be an unfavorable match. I feel like the browns. They'll put up a fight. But i don't think anybody is really going to go off in this game and i think that when it comes to the browns defense probably look for other options. Because i do think. Lamar jackson is gonna have a big game there so we thirteen. The browns have a by week fourteen. They take on the ravens again and last year when these two teams men cleveland. It was a you know it was a slugfest. It was forty five to forty four. I think the final score was so. I don't expect it to be like that. But i do expect. The browns would be more competitive in this game. You know if they do lose the previous week and they you know take the bye week and they kind of realize what. Look at what we did wrong and stuff like that. There'll be more prepared for the game against the ravens. The second time around so they'll probably put up a better fight you know. They're probably you know. Make it close. If it's another blowout in baltimore so i expect you know to be more competitive guys. Put a more fantasy points. If they didn't really have good weeks against the ravens you know the first time around. So i think it's kind of a middle of the road leading a little bit more towards favorable again maybe look for other options when it comes to the browns defense that week because again i feel like lamar jackson is still going to make plays. And he's gonna make it hard for this browns defense to stop him so moving onto the next match up on the schedule. You got the raiders coming to town and last time. These teams met in cleveland. Low scoring game. I believe the final score was sixteen to six last year and that was a crazy day for me because i had a lot of you know things with cova going on so i had that game on my laptop as i was in isolation last year so i had that on one of my screens and i was like. Wow this is very low scoring you know. I thought it'd be very high scoring. But i guess not but yeah i mean i think it's gonna be a different game. I don't think it's going to be sixteen to six. But i do think the browns defense can do. Okay here. i think you know it. All depends on the raiders offensive line. And how they're doing you know. I think that. You know the raiders. They're going to be a sneaky team this year. Offensively i feel like they always are. I think the real problem with them as defensively which. I think you start every browns player imaginable. I'm exaggerating a little bit. But i just really. Don't trust the raiders defense. I mean i know. They brought some guys like in god and casey hayward but i really just don't trust their defense i feel teams are still going to be able to move the ball against them and i think the browns are one of those teams and i do think that their offense will do really well. The receivers baker the running backs. Maybe hooper he has a touchdown here. I just feel like the raiders off. A raiders. defense is a defense. That's not really going to stop a lot of opposing offenses. So i think this is a very favorable match appear for the browns so moving onto the next match-up on their schedule week. Sixteen they go to lambofield to take on the packers christmas game. This is going to be a very fun game. I cannot wait for this game. I'm going to be eating some lasagna. It's gonna be it's gonna be a great day it's gonna be a great day teams go. At obviously aaron rodgers hopefully will be on his way to get another. Mvp and maybe on his way to win the super bowl hopefully for me. We'll have to wait and see but this is gonna be a really fun game. I don't see. I don't really know i mean i. You know late in the season last year the titans they went up to lambo and they just did not play well. I feel like the browns could fall into that trap. If it's snow game i'll say right now. The browns will get killed in this game. However if the weather is okay you know in terms of okay me. No snow because it's going to be freezing. Obviously because this is december. I think you heavily rely on. Nick chub and kareem hunt you get the run game going you gotta keep yourself in this game because you know if this browns defense is not stopping aaron rodgers. It does not matter. The browns are not gonna win this game. They're gonna have to throw this. They're gonna have to throw themselves back into the game and the running game is not going to mean anything but if they're able to stick around and you know hang with the packers. I think you know the running game does okay. Because you know what i still don't trust his packers run defense so i think the running game is the key in this game and i think you know the receivers. I think they could do okay. I don't think they're gonna put a massive numbers because you gotta deal with drier alexander and we'll see how the you know the rookie does stokes you know. I think whoever's going up against gyro alexander's gonna have a problem. So it's most likely going to be dell or landry so maybe look for the tight ends to get more involved here and then defensively for the browns. Probably for other options because of aaron rodgers playing. And he's on a roll and he's on his way to another. Mvp definitely look for some other options. Because you know this is home and this is where he plays great. And so yeah. That's my thoughts on that game then moving onto week. Seventeen got the pittsburgh steelers. They're going to pittsburgh to take on the steelers. Monday night football game. This is going to be a very tough game. And i definitely can see you know the browns getting killed in this game like they did last year when they played pittsburgh in the regular season. You know because again. I feel like the steelers. They really doubt playoff Definitely left a bad taste in their mouth. And i know that the steelers they do like to talk and the you know and all that stuff and that really hurts them. But i don't know. I feel like they wanna prove that. That playoff loss was a fluke. And i feel like the browns are going to struggle a little bit because this is late in the season. And if the steelers are like fighting for playoff spot you know. This is a game that they have to have. This is a game. They will definitely win if they have to have this game so i'm going to say they're going to struggle year because it's in heinz field. You're going to have a full crowd there. I think the browns i. I don't think they're going to be scared. I'm maybe a little bit overwhelmed with it but we'll see what happens. Because i do think that the defense is gonna shut down the run. I mean the thing that i'm going to be looking for in this. Matchup is the browns wide receivers matching up against the db's of the steelers and also both lines going at it. The defensive line for the steelers going up against the browns offensive line. I think those are the two keys in this game. The browns able to hold that seal pass rush down. I think they could definitely move the ball here but if not it's going to be a long night for baker so i'm going to say it's an unfair will match up here for the browns offense. I really don't expect a ton of points to be scored by the browns. The thing they got to rely upon their defense and if their defense can hold down the steelers offense and it's late in the season. So i talked about that. Wear and tear with. Ben if ben is you know not playing good than the browns defense can definitely take advantage of that and you know may cause some problems for that steelers offense so i'm going to say it's an unfavorable matchup. I definitely do think you can make the argument to start the browns defense that week. And then finally you got the bangles. They're coming to town to take on the browns. Obviously most fantasy leagues will be done by this point. But i think it's a farewell match up kind of the same thing with the first matchup with the bengals in the bengals. Don't really have that good of a defense. I think the browns will be able to move the ball against them. Baker does well against the bengals. You know this is a favorable match here. And i guess you know. Let's see what happens on the other side. You know if. Joe borough can continue his success from the browns against the browns from last year. And how this browns defense you know improves well. That's another interesting match up to look at but You know. I think borough was doing really well this year and his receivers doing well and all that i think maybe you look for other options you know especially because this is a divisional match up these teams know each other. Well you know if this bengals offense is doing well probably look for some other options with that. So that is the browns schedule. You know. i've talked about the browns a lot. I do think that this is the team to beat in the afc north. I'm gonna pick them to win the afc north and there's a lot of players on this team that you're definitely going to want to have a team. Of course. I do think that baker mayfield is a sleeper. You know going into dress. I do think he's going to do well. Because of the offensive line because of the running game it definitely helps them out a lot and you know what let's see our dell does how does he reinsert him. Self back into this back into this team because i like. I've said i think the you know the browns. They were a better team without odell. And now he's gonna kinda have to get himself back into this offense and you know reinsert himself so it's going to be interesting to see and then you've got guys like jarvis landry and they got some other wide receivers at higgins and people's jones. You know there's some young guys that are looking to step up and they could be guys that maybe could be waiver wire pickups during the year in case injuries happen or something like that the tight ends. I think it really all depends on the touchdowns. i think. That's you know why you would probably pick up. Awesome hooper because of the touchdown targets. But we'll see what happens the browns. I think they're going to be a good team and there's some players that you definitely gonna wanna get if you get. Nick tried to kareem hunt. And i definitely do. You could start those two at the same time you line is because that's how much they utilize those two running backs in their offense. So yeah. I expect the browns to do well this year and we'll see how they do So with that we're gonna take our final break of the show when we come back. I'm going to talk about the philadelphia eagles and their players and whether or not they will eclipse their fancy told us from last year whether we will be around the same or if they'll be less than what they were a season ago so stick around.

Gas just tied t us nc in the search bar and we're back here on the gs mc fantasy football podcast for the final segment of today's show. I'm going to go through the players on the philadelphia eagles and talk about whether or not i think they're going to eclipse their fantasy total from last year. Whether i think it's gonna be around the same. Or if i think it's going to be less than what it was last season. So let's get right into their place or starting off with the quarterback position jalen hurts. So i think that jalen hurts will obviously a clips is fantasy total from last year. And i'm going off of his. Espn numbers so last year. He had hundred point nine. Four fantasy points six touchdowns and had barely over one thousand yards passing. I think he's going to obviously eclipse that. He'll be playing a full season. This was kind of an easy one to determine whether or not they will match their point. Total or not jalen hurts is definitely going to eclipse that because he'll be playing a full season. Obviously you know this is ignoring injuries or anything like that. I think obviously plays a full season. He will eclipse is fantasy point. Total from last year now moving on to some other players on the team got mile sanders last year. At one hundred fifty six point four fantasy points missed a couple of games last year. I definitely think he is going to eclipse his fancy total from last year again if he plays a full season and injuries are not a concern. He definitely will eclipse his fantasy total from last year. There's a lot of talk on whether or not the eagles backfield is going to be a running back by committee and stuff like that but it seems like mile. Sanders is really impressing in camp and he is going to take over that lead running back role as he should because he is a talented player and obviously they do have a new scheme and all that with the new head coach. Nick which. I don't really know if that whole thing is going to really pan out i. I don't think the eagles are really going to be that good of a team but i think mile sanders is a talented player. That you know he should match will eclipse his fantasy total from last year because he dealt with injuries and he is a talented player. And there's not a lot of weapons on this eagles team so he should have a huge role in the offense again this year. And hopefully you know eclipses. Fantasy total so now. Moving on to dallas scattered last year ninety three point. Four fantasy points had three touchdowns last year. Barely over five hundred yards receiving. I definitely think he is going to eclipse his fantasy again. He was another guy that missed a couple of games last year and if he plays a full season definitely can eclipse that. Get to over a hundred points in fantasy and you know. I definitely think he'd get more than three touchdowns. I think the tight ends are really going to be what sparks this eagles offense you know because you look at the wide receiver position obviously devante smith. They drafted to help out the receiving core but outside of that. There's really not a lot of names that really jumped out at you and scare you on the eagles offense so i definitely do think the tight end spot is going to be a huge factor. This season for the eagles. And i think dallas goddard is going to be a main component of that and i expect him to have more than three touchdowns this year and i think that he will have over a hundred fantasy points of course as long again as long as injuries. Do not factor into his season. I think he's going to eclipse his fantasy total from last year as well and be a productive player in fantasy this upcoming season so dallas goddard another player on the eagles that i will clips his fantasy total so moving onto another player. This one is a very interesting players. Zach ertz the other tight end for the eagles. Last year did not have a very good season. Only had three hundred. Thirty five receiving yards and a touchdown at fifty nine point five fantasy points and you know really just did not have a good season missed. A handful of games really was a non factor in the offense last year and it was very it was a little surprising to at least you know at least for me because you know i thought zach. Ertz was going to have another great season. I thought he was going to be a productive player. I know that you know dallas got it is there and he would have stone more targets from him and he did but i still thought that zakar was going to be a factor in this eagles offense and he really was not and the injury bug definitely hurt him to and you know i thought that zach ertz was going to be traded. I thought he was going to be gone from philadelphia this year and that was not the case he is still on the team and i definitely do think that if he still stays with philadelphia and he plays the full season. I think he'll definitely score more fantasy points than he did last year. And i definitely do think you'll have more than one touchdown. I just can't see that it's going to happen again. I mean we'll see what happens if you unless there's a last second trade or something. He's eventually going to be moved at. Not if but i think as of right now if he's healthy and he's on the eagles roster think he will play a role on the eagles team. I think he's a guy that you want to wait on not draft him. You know right away. You don't wanna reach on him because of the season that he's coming off of but again i. I do think that if you get them at the right time in your draft. I think he can be you. Know a factor on your team. It's just you gotta again weighed on him. Wait till the late rounds to pick him. And i think that he will eclipse his fantasy total from last year. I don't think he'll have the season that he had last year. He's healthy and i. I just think that the tight ends are going to be more of a factor in this offense as opposed to the receivers. I think he'll eclipse his fantasy. Total have a better season. I don't know if he's going to be a top ten fancy tight end but i do think you'll be better than what he was last year. So moving onto the other positions you got the wide receivers devante. Smith obviously did not play for the eagles last year because he was a rookie. So let's talk about some of the other guys on the team so you got jalen raider. Who was there draft choice from the previous. Nfl draft only had seventy one point seven fantasy points and again. I'm just going off of these. Espn numbers here. So last year. Three hundred ninety. Six receiving yards and a touchdown. I definitely think he can eclipse that Us another guy that dealt with a lot of injuries as well and you know he's going to be one of the main guys you know that is going to have the football thrown to him this year so i do think that he will eclipse his fantasy total. And maybe he'll do better as a number two wide receiver to devante smith because the monte smith is obviously young to be the number one wide receiver on this team. And i think this will definitely help out. Jalen rieger jalen definitely showed flashes last year. You know not that many but he definitely did show flashes. Maybe you know in year two. he does better obviously. This is a new playbook that he's gonna learn all that but you know when i definitely do think if he does play the full season he will definitely eclipse the seventy one point seven fantasy point total from last year. And i definitely do think he'll score more than one touchdown this year. So that's my thoughts on jalen ray gallison moving onto some other players on this team so you got boston. Scott last year had eighty three point. Fantasy points and a touchdown. I do think he could score. More than one touchdown see this. One's kinda tough now. Because you know i feel like mile. Sanders is the lead running back. And i think he will get the bulk of the carries though. I did look at the sleeper app and it did say that you know. They could split carries boston scott in him. So it's kind of wayne see approach. You know he did have again. Eighty three point. One fantasy points. Only one touchdown i mean i definitely think he can get more than one touchdown this year. I think i said that already. But i i do think you can get more than one touchdown i feel like he probably is slightly below that this year again in all depends on injuries mile. Sanders is playing the full year. I don't think that boston scott is going to get the bulk of the carries but if mile sanders does get hurt. I can definitely see boston. Scott eclipsing this eighty three point one fantasy total but i i think as of right now. I'm not gonna factor in injuries. I'm going to say that. He does not eclipse that fantasy total. He's below that this year because again mile sanders i think will be the lead running back and stay healthy for the eagles. So that's my thoughts on boston. Scott so a guy that you know has been you know kind of you know mentioned a little bit and has been standing out in eagles camp and that is the wide receiver quiz watkins. I do remember him scoring that touchdown against the cardinals last year. Because i had jalen hurts and it was a it was a pretty good play. Had quiz walk ins doing like a juke. Move and you know it was more. It was more of a quiz watkins. Play as opposed to jalen hurts. Play kaz was kind of a wide receiver screen. He caught it out. his guy ran down. The sideline scored a touchdown. I think it was on like a second twenty so that was a highlight from watkins. Last year and had a seventy nine yard touchdown in the preseason game against the steelers. so he's a guy that i think is looking to make an impact. This year only had twenty point one fantasy points. Last year and a touchdown. I definitely do think if he plays a bigger role on the team. He will eclipse his fantasy total from last year and again there's not a lot of household names when it comes to the eagles often so i definitely do think that he can make an impact and eclipses randy total. I don't know if it's going to warrant. You know him. Being a waiver wire pickup. We'll have to wait and see again. It all depends on injuries and stuff and how involved he is in the offense. So i'll say he's gonna clips his total. But i'm not going to necessarily say like go out and get them because i don't think he's going to make an impact in terms of standard leagues. I think obviously dynasty. You take a chance on him but in regular leagues. I think you kind of you know. Let him sit on the waiver. Wire until like an injury happens or if he makes a really big impact then you go out and you pick them up so in other wide receiver on this team is travis. Fold them and his role is in question with the eagles. So that's going gonna be interesting to see how that shapes out. So i'm guessing he really has not been producing and camp was a hot waiver. Wire pickup last year definitely had some good games in week four. He had twelve point. Seven points against the forty niners in touchdown. Twenty six point two points against the steelers and a touchdown in week. Five weeks sixty at sixteen point. Five fantasy points against the ravens and a touchdown sixteen point eight points against dallas and we ate at a touchdown so from week. Four two week eight produced in between that yet week seven. He only had seventy three yards receiving yet. Nine point eight points there so he had those games where he scored touchdowns but then after that cooled off really was a non factor after those couple of games. So you know. I don't really know if he doesn't you know if he's on the eagles if he's not playing you know for any team i guess he doesn't eclipses ninety six point nine fancy total and i guess if he's really not lighting up in camp than he probably is lower than that i mean. Espn only hasim projected to have fifteen points as she are so that definitely is not a good sign for him. So i think that you know. He does not eclipse his fantasy total. Judging by what. I'm looking at right now. So yeah i'm gonna say. He doesn't eclipse his fancy total. Maybe he doesn't even make the team. It seems like you know with all these other receivers they got so yeah charles. Fogelman will not eclipse his fancy total so in other wide receiver. You got greg ward. Last year he had one hundred six point six fantasy points. He had six touchdowns. I mean definitely a guy that has had a role on the team in the past but you know right now with all these other receivers is he going to have a you know. Is he still going to have a role on this team. And he's likely going to make the roster so now it's really just about going to be able to eclipse that. I mean you got devante. Smith you got regular i mean. I think it's going to be tough for greg ward to eclipse his fantasy total. So i'm gonna say he doesn't eclipses his fantasy total. I'm going to say that. Demonte smith and jalen reagan. Really going to have the bulk of the targets again. If injuries happen then gregoire does have a chance to take on a major role of bigger role on the scene but if he you know is kind of like the number three wide receiver. He's not really going to get. You know a ton of targets because on top of that you gotta deal with the tight ends with goddard and erz. We're gonna take even more targets away from greg ward. So i'm gonna say gregoire does not match his total so now you also have jordan howard on the team and i don't really think that he's going to play a major role in the running game for the eagles because he does have some competition for carries you know obviously mile sanders boston. Scott and you also have the rookie. Kenneth gain while who again is a rookie. He's not going to really be mentioned in this segment because he's a rookie was not on eagles last year. So jordan howard. You got some competition but he is making a serious bid to make the roster of the eagles. So i'm going to say that. He doesn't match his fantasy total from last year unless there are major injuries and of course he will because then he's going to have to. You know take on a bigger role. But i mean he only had thirty point two fantasy points. He had four touchdowns. I don't really think he's going to see a ton of playing time unless again you know injuries do happen so i'm gonna say. He doesn't eclipse his fantasy total from last year. And he's probably a guy that is really not gonna get drafted again unless there are injuries and depending on how deep your lee is. He's really not going to have a huge impact you know when he is playing so not a guy that you want to pick up so moving onto. Let's talk about the defense. The defense had eighty four points. Last year I i don't think that they are going to eclipse this total. I think it's going to be less than that. Espn has a projected less than eighty four. Because you know what the eagles. I think their defense. There's going to be a lot of points scored against them. And i think that unless they have a really good match-up i think you don't wanna pick them up you know and start them. They're not a defense so you're going to want to start because they just they're not going to be a good defense this year. I do like their front for. They still have playmakers on this defense. Of course but i feel like the back end is going to be a problem. I think there's gonna be a lot of big plays at this defense will give up. So you're probably going to not wanna start this defense or pick them up at any point during the season unless they unless they go out and they prove something you know. I think their defense that you kinda wanna leave alone and look for other options you know when it comes to defenses. So then you've got. Jake elliott the kicker. I don't know what happened to him. He only had sixty eight fantasy points last year. I mean this guy was a really good fantasy. Kicker really good kicker in general and just had a really down season. But i definitely do think that he will. He will eclipse his fantasy total and he will have a much better season if he's you know if he's healthy and everything's right. It just didn't make sense. Guy was a really good kicker in for some reason just had a really down season last year and he was missing a lot of kicks and stuff like that so yeah i definitely do think he will eclipse his fantasy. Total if he's healthy and everything is right with him so then you got. Jj ortega whiteside only had eighteen point five fantasy points last year and espn only hasn't projected to have three point nine so i'm guessing that he's really not you know producing in camp and yeah he's in danger of losing roster spot. I just looked it up now. He hasn't really done anything in the preseason. So i'm guessing he's just not going to be on the team anymore and you know he's one of the big contributors to the eagles to win the division back in twenty one thousand nine hundred and now it seems like you know. He's on his way out so he's probably not going to do clips his fantasy. Total for the eagles. I think it's safe to say that so. I think that's pretty much everybody wanted to get through. I mean you also have richard rodgers the other tied and at fifty eight point five fantasy points last year. I don't think he's going to eclipse his fantasy total. Just because you've got the other two tight ends there. And i do expect that zach. Ertz will play a much bigger role on this team and i think that dallas goddard is going to be a number one tight end. So i do think that you know. That's gonna take away targets from richard rodgers and also because he's i think he's used more in blocking situations so i don't really think he. You know warrants any fantasy value. You know when talking about richard rogers so yeah. Those are all the eagles players. And you know it's going to be an interesting season for them. They definitely aren't to be you know a very good team. You know they got a lot of rebuilding that they have to do. And you know there's not really a ton of players that you really wanna get from this team because you know like. I said they're really not going to be a good team. Jalen hurts. I think is going to be an underrated fantasy quarterback this year. I do believe that. The eagles are going to be playing from behind a lot this year. And i feel like that is going to help. Jalen hurts value a lot because he's going to be throwing the football law trying to get the eagles back in a games a lot. Because i feel like they are going to be playing from behind a decent amount. So i'm gonna say he's going to be an underrated fantasy quarterback. I definitely think he'd be. He could be a quality number two quarterback for your team. I definitely do believe that you know. We got to see how the weapons are. You know jalen. Reagan did not have a good rookie season. And maybe that he's not you know. Now he's not gonna be the guy you know it's going to be demonte smith. Maybe that helps them out a lot. You know they got a lotta young players on this team. Gain well and rigor and demonte smith walk ins you know and i i think still the best fantasy player on this team is probably mile sanders. I think he's probably the best one and you know there's still a lot of questions with that. It seems like he's taking over the lead running back role the feature back you know and it seems like you know if he continues to impress he will get the bulk of the carries but it seems like they wanna do that running back by committee at least talked about that but mile sanders keeps impressing. You know in camp. He is not going to you. Know be splitting carries really that much but you know. The eagles have a relatively young team and there is talent here. I like i said i think when it comes to the defense you probably look for other options. Because i don't think they're going to be you know that good particularly in the secondary. Do think that they'll be able to rush the passer but ultimately. I don't think that that's really going to do much when you can't stop anybody you can't cover anybody and you're going to give up a lot of points now again if they play really bad team then maybe you know you do pick them up you know stream them you know one week and then you drop them. You know after that. But other than that i really just do not see the eagles defense having a ton of value going into the season and then jake elliott. I mean he should have a better season. Really did not have a great season last year. As i mentioned with the point totals. So i think he's a guy that you know will definitely go in the later rounds while obviously is gonna go in the later rounds of me. You don't want wanna overdraft kicker. You do not want to do that. You want to build your team. Kicker should be one of your last picks. You know you don't wanna reach on that but you know it's gonna be an interesting season for the eagles and you know we're just gonna have to wait and see what happens with the eagles. And maybe they'll surprise people. Maybe they will. Maybe they will be bad like everyone has been saying. I lean more towards that. So yeah that's That's the first time i've done this segment with the you know talking about players on a certain team and whether i think they'll eclipse clips they'll match or they will be under their point totals from the previous season so i started off with the eagles next. I will do the dallas cowboys on the following. Show and yeah just like i've been doing with the schedule outlooks. I'll be going through each individual team. Obviously now i have three shows. I'll be doing each week. I mentioned that earlier in the show. So you know more content you know and the season is upon us so i might start doing two per show because i wanna get through as many teams as possible before the season does start so yeah. That's kind of the rundown for the next couple of weeks and Yeah season is upon us so with that. That is all the time that we have for today.

"Jason jay williams ubi podcast. Good everybody's on rolling zubin. He's accused johnson. Jay williams on freddie coming in hindi on espn radio. Espn news sirius. Xm channel eighty and the espn happened. Everybody out there is a safe as possible people dealing with put it this way. I think i saw a man and a big bone animals going into to buy depending on where you guys are looking at depending what part of. I'm glad you guys are safe up your families and say for everybody's doing well man. It took me like two hours to get into the studio today. I was telling you guys when i first got in. I felt like i was. I will smith in. I am legend. Like that's how the streets looked out there new york city cars pulled over trees down dangling electric wires out there. I'm just glad everybody's good. We're here happy thursday. The weekend is almost here. Although on los angeles good lines gusty. Hey that's why he got the glow. You've got everything you need to let everybody know that we know you know where you are. You're not here with us. Hits lands dark room out there. I want everybody on the east coast. Obviously be safe and we like to have fun in the mornings and gonna continue to do that because we do it right. But i want you to go to your app your weather app and i just want you to pull up california. Pull up los angeles or calabasas. It just looked to. The right is see all of those happy little sonny boy feel so cassese how he try to rub it in. He's always be rub. It in this key does not trying to the silvo skinny notice skin. Look right getting right son out there now. The baby he's like rubbing alcohol into the wounded and the rubbing alcohol we avocados and everything man avocados. Good for everything. Avocado lotion out there. Now every everything you name it. It's there in fact. When i'm done i'll be having avocado for breakfast. So you want to smell like a salad. Getting keeps on twitter key saw real jay williams on twitter be cove and espn and destroy key jay z. Speaking of guys smelling like avocados and feeling good. That'd be mack jones now. The starting quarterback of the new england patriots gets the job cam newton no longer part of this organization. Bill belichick got to touch with in a gangster when he made this move on tuesday and was instant milk hyper junior when he had a chance to talk about. How intriguing quarterback now are in the afc shaw because all these dudes are on the twenty six years of age. Mack jones a rookie with the new england patriots. To on the second year with miami. You have josh allen. The buffalo bills and he's close to being an elite quarterback and zach wilson the rookie of the new york jets. You look at this division now. Maybe you looked at the move that he was able to make to say. Well i gotta get ahead of the curve. Because all these quarterbacks in this division are younger than the guy. I thought about was going to be the starting quarterback when it comes to cam newton you know all every every half years you go to a division in that division has young quarterbacks that you think are going to be there in the long haul right you'd think about jim. Kelly's dan marino's when they were in the afc ease way back then or you'd think about as most recent cam newton that matt ryan's in drew breezes that was sitting in the nfc south. Now you take a look at this division and from top to bottom. You got some talent. I don't know where to we'll finish up at. But if let's say for instance to swap out for some reason for the shine watson. That division gets stacked at the quarterback because of josh allen. Starting at all then. You gotta zack. Wilson who a lot of people would fact tony romo a good friend of mine in next make thinks zach. Wilson will be a top five quarterback three to five quarterback in this league in a very short time. So you look zach wilson. Then you moved amac jones obviously in his situation. The new england patriots. So the quarterback spot is there to stay for the long haul in the afc. Now how many championships can they get out of that. We watched that division be dominated and owned by bill. Belichick and tom brady for a long time. Now it's opened up for others. You see pretty. I love narratives fans love narratives to follow so wanna narratives i saw yesterday was the alabama quarterbacks right. I'll to a tunnel below mack jones. Both starters in the afc east. Who's going to pan out to be better. Jalen hurts obviously playing for the philadelphia eagles. I still considering to be oklahoma guy. But that's a narrative that you follow josh allen. Second in the mvp voting emmanuel sanders. Stefan digs that resources. That he has. Are they right there in the same class with the kansas city chiefs. That's a conversation. i believe. They are close enough. They are right there. there are an upper tier. And then you get to. You know the way this division just pans out in general everything about this league. Even with zach wilson. I mean tony romo tedious alluded to it. People saw when you see. Patrick mahomes his name in the same paragraph as zack wilson. That comes from tony romo. That's a narrative. I'm gonna follow now. I'm paying attention to it. So up and comers this league is going to be one of the most exciting divisions there is in the national football league. Here's the now that is completely one hundred percent and you guys know this and everybody knows now the nfl's a second by second league. It's no longer year to year. It's no longer week the week. So more than ever. Before when you got the biggest baddest boy in jungle. That's patrick mahomes. Everybody is going to be compared to him. They compare tom brady at times. The patrick mahomes because he is here right now doesn't make you're right though for it. I didn't say making right. i hear you. it doesn't make but it is what it is from the standpoint up if you are going to push agenda when it comes out of your quarterback your team you're gonna compare that somebody great. You don't compare people to nobody's that never works in the national football league. So i get it with the whole thing with zach wilson but tony romo keesa what he had to say about zack. Here's the deal. it comes down to. Who's going to be the best vision and right now. Many people on that narrative that mac jones makes the pages a lot closer to the candy chiefs. He takes the patriots new england. I'm not saying. I'm not saying it's too king said i know but it's just it it. They need to just just let him just one game. At a time. I get it one game at a time. I think you know. Freddie and j the knowing the patriots looked like the new england patriots of the early years of tom brady will they will dink and dunk play. Defense run the ball with to tidy and and trying to get out the game with a w that's what they're gonna look like. They're not gonna look like the patriots of six years ago seven years ago. It's not going to happen then that they're not gonna do that with that young quarterback they're gonna protect him and make sure that he's not harassed on a constant basis. All i'm going to say is what if i'm not saying it's going to happen. You're not gonna play the game or you. Why not at a game. That's that's my role here. I understand. I am the band holiday weekend. Holly can do that in holiday weekend. Labor day we all about off saying there was no way that mack jones was going to be a starter. A lot of people were saying that. I understand that i thought cam newton was going to be the starter regardless of how it happened. It happened. We talked about this yesterday. Freddie people don't care about context anymore it's our job when we go over history to remind people the context but everyday fan is going to say mack. Jones won the position. Fine he wins the position. What if they protect him just enough and those wide receiver core and those titans are just enough for this team to look like they were an early two thousands. That's scary just to think about. In general all he has to do is remain cool calm and collected the three cs rookie quarterback hard to do. But it's been done before. It keyshawn jay zubin he's jay.

If a guy's unvaccinated he may not get the benefit of the doubt and then the jacksonville jaguars withhold an when they heard about that. Whole deal say over. You can't be saying stuff like that. It goes to this gentleman. I wondered about this high with urban meyer. I understand you want him to have you believe in him that he can be that newfangled coach whatever that was but every time we turn around it seems like a misstep happens that he should know better being a guy that has been coach long enough.

Cows balls back and saw the fans return to glory fans ville by dr pepper. The one fans deserve so urban. Meyer told the truth was told not to tell the truth and they walked it back straight. Talk brought by straight talk. Wireless key i'll let you handle this. When i did. J. spit ball back and forth. I know urban is used to having the power church and state but at a certain point. How do you not know the room at this point even though he's barely been. Nfl head coach for more than a minute. That's but it's like anything. No right freddy its muscle memory. It's what he knew in college and he always ran the show so he still getting all of the college years out of his blood. So he's going to do things that he would do in college and nobody was saying anything. We're in the pros you. It's way different because you got different levels right you got the nfl. You got the owners. Then you got the upstairs management. You got the players. It's just a different got the media everywhere. Even though you got media college the media in college for the most part big stops at florida and ohio state. they've pretty much didn't cover you from a national standpoint. Every move that you may they would cover ohio state and florida because they were good but not every single day all day long no matter what the case may be and i think he's still learning those sorts of things and and look to his credit he basically said what all the other coaches are doing in front office. People or doing is nothing new. It was nothing new to me several months ago. When i knew a young man that i continue to tell. Hey man you might wanna take a look at that vaccination and he kept cinema me now. I want to do it. And i kept saying i'm telling you because you sitting right now at about forty five to fifty on that on that roster and he didn't and guess what they wind up releasing him as well so i just you know a caution people out there that think that oh these these coaches and front office. People aren't making sort of decisions when they are just. I don't know why this is such a big deal. It's a big deal. Because it's urban meyer. Like and i understand the history of urban. Meyer understand a decision that he made and j deal because he said well sean. Mcdermott said it shall mcdermott. The head. coach of the buffalo bills said the same damn thing. It wasn't a massive massive story. So let's just put it into perspective. We know everybody's doing it. I understand that. The jaguars are now trying to walk it back which they shouldn't walk back. Just take the hit. This is what everybody knows is going down whether you like it or not. It's just not happening in. This industry is happening. In a lot of other industries even where some people some companies like cvs or delta are mandating their employees or vaccinated. This is where we're going whether people like it or not. It's going to rub people the wrong way. I know the nfl. Pa has an issue with it. But i don't think it was wrong if this is how you want to run your organization. I understand that bill belichick might go about doing it differently key but this is how urban meyer wants to run. I just people the wrong way because this is the first year on job. I'm jay you know me. I feel i know you tell all. Espn gotta do is tell me i'm gonna check. See the guys with the why jockey jackets they go. Tell me i'm good. I'm good. I'm not i get it. I understand it because there's a lot that go into these organizations and what they stand for in terms of gains on the economics versus lost they don't wanna forfeit games a whole bunch of actually based on your beliefs. I understand that you must know that there's protocols in place they rules that you have to follow then if you're willing to follow those rules and you on the hierarchy of a team chances are you'll be safe if you own the bottle you now following the you probably going to be sitting with me at some point in time. I mean that's just the reality of it. Follow the money line. I've always said that about any kind of situation and especially in the national football league. You do not mess with their money. They are never ever going to allow players to mess with their money. Key players are noggin. Allow players to mess with their money. So the whole unvaccinated vaccinated conversations where the urban meyer seventy had to shouldn't have said he had a right to say it goes beyond this when you start messing with people's money people are going to have something to say about it and go no go for jobs. Statement saying availabilities wanted many factors north the best available for nfl team making money there when it comes to that kind of availability and because statements that one of the many factors taken into account when making roster decisions we have vaccinated unvaccinated player on our roster and no play was released because vaccinating stats vaccination status that was a teams by the jaguars they also got the put in there went alternate decisions based on the jaguars win. That comes if you can help us win back. And you're messing with our money. And that's why people upset by urban. Meyer said a lot more. Jay mckee sean. Mcdermott said what the buffalo bills earlier this year. Well here. here's what i would say i'd like to. I'd like to see who the unvaccinated players are and where the pecking order is with those unvaccinated players. That are on teams in their money versus the dudes that's unvaccinated. That's at the bottom of the barrel. I liked the q. Already know what that is to say. What that is i do i do. I really want to see it like i. I need to visually see. Hey this guy makes thirty five million dollars in his cap numbers sixty million in these other vaccinated any starts for us so we can't get rid of. This guy is not very good. He makes eight hundred thousand and he's vaccinated so we're going to get rid of him. I i would. I would like to personally see that. So would i. If he will love decoders exactly we live in reality. That's not happening or no i. It's a no the nfl is teflon. is i noticed. Shield is teflon ennerdale. Money always wins but it does feel like the. Nfl talks out of both sides of mouths sometime because they can afford to exactly like well here all the protocols and hear what the repercussions are but then info pieta says. Well hold on a second. We won't both it. Don't work that way man. It works a winning way for a lot of coaches. They wanna win and they're going to do what's in their best interest to win a lot owners. Winning means making a lot of money and the nfl keeps winning green. Hey it's always been about green and national football. No doubt about that. That's by straight talk wireless. No contract no compromise. He's keyshawn johnson. Jay williams or freddie part of keyshawn. Jalen zubin here on. Espn radio the espn app. Espn news and sirius.

Jay zubin at eight ten eastern on espn radio and espn news. He's keyshawn johnson. He's jay williamson freddie coming a key. J. woman zubin on espn radio espn news. Sirius xm channel eighty. And you're serious smart speaker ten minutes when which from. Nfl player at the patriots made a mistake. Cutting loose cam newton. That comes your way in about ten minutes but the chicago bears. We are not gonna lose any dot and anytime soon he's going to be. Qb one when the season get started gang qb one already is key qb. One shooter matters your standpoint. Take it up with ryan. As the general manager of this bears. He said and i quote about justin fields. He's exactly what we thought he would be. He's exactly what we hoped. He would be an quote so why is he not starting in week. One for the cowboys. Who could we we just have. The bears be daring. Just be daring right so justin feels is drafted. eleventh overall. andy. Dalton has gone six sixteen over the last two seasons. I said this yesterday. There's a burning image in my mind of andy. Dolan i'm not saying he's not serviceable. But behind that o. Line of the dallas cowboys last year. Getting destroyed and chicago doesn't have own line and he can't move the way justin fields can move. So i'm telling you it's interesting if justin feels eleven overall looking for cuba apparently is better than sixteen. Qb that's the case. Then i hope he will be the franchise. Qb if he's what they hoped he would be. Why is he not starting week. One that question. I have but there's nothing wrong with what ryan pace said When you are scouting somebody and you taking a look at his job. You hope that they are what you thought they would be at some point in time. He is young. So i understand what ryan as the city and when we we made the decision to move up to two draft justin feels. He's giving us everything we thought he would give us. This timeframe doesn't mean that five weeks from now. He's not the starter. It just means that what we see. We thought we're going to bring him along slowly and he's going to continue to grow but based on where he is from a timing standpoint. This is what we thought in where he would be. This is what we thought he would be. This is where he is. And we're happy with that. I think that is what ryan pace trying to say. But because we are media are you guys are media. And i'm part of your crew. So i guess technically makes me media only we liked the dissect break little things down about what ryan pace is actually saying. I think justin feels will play this year when that will happen. I don't know and i don't think they actually know but they wanna give andy dalton and opportunity to try and get things going in the right direction. Much like lamar jackson flacco. They started flaco when they drafted lamar and then at the end they said no. You're not going to get his fire in put in lamar in lamar's been underneath the saddle. Every since i i just. Are we saying here saying that last year didn't happen is last year completely swept underneath the rug. Absolutely so it's not. It's not what you have to. But i'm not going to though key for team different situation for andy dong j you cannot. You cannot punish him. I'm not punishable. Mistakes punishment look at him and say will thrive in what we're doing. I'm punishing him key. I'm letting him know that. Justin feels is a guy that has a talent and actually from knowing justin feels and speaking to him i think his mindset is better when he's thrown to the wolves. Now i know there's different strokes for different folks. I know something. If you're talking about andy reid. And i'm not saying justin feels patrick. Mahomes let him slip through year. Let them lender system. I understand that's the way it's been done and that's how easy it has been but my thing is if andy dolan wasn't good enough for the dallas cowboys. Why is he good enough for the chicago bears. Here's the deal with that. And i'm going to be a bouncing dope both of you guys because a hero. Both you're saying but if you're just chicago bears have we seen that offensive line lately. That's why just feels can't start week one if anybody's going to be the sacrificial lamb if you're going to come to the baby and the bible then has to be andy dalton this situation you have a lot more vested in justin fields for your future. He's not going to be taken back. But you don't want to retard his progress by putting an offense aligned can't protect anybody so comprehensively behind the offensive line anyway it will at least give them a little bit of time where he has a chance to maybe get used to the speed of the game even at practice and a different kind of drills and not just throw them out there early. That's why in my opinion. Why ryan pace put that out there to say yeah justice with everything that we thought but we put behind that offensive line. Then it's going to look worse for him and then all of a sudden the practice he's been able to make we set him back because with doing that line with the wolf. We'd rather do that. Andy dalton and experienced that can avoid those kind of. Let me take you a little bit into the coach's room Freddie and j you look at the offense a line in the offense align looks like is struggling right. it looks like they are getting beat at the point of attack people coming around the edge harassing the quarterback. Sometimes it's the protection scheme. They've got to go back now over these next couple of weeks or they probably have already started the process as they gain plan they throw out the bad protection schemes in leave in some things. I don't know their offense but they may have things that they were looking at in. The preseason didn't block it up the right way they may have plays. Don't coincide with the protection so you you understand what i'm saying it's like you may have a term protection act protection. Three step drop protect. They may be trying to use a three step drop protection for a play action pass llamas live one way and this was the other way they should be sliding up so they may be looking at all of those there may be pulling the left guard instead of pulling the right gore when the right guard is to pull. It's only preseason. So i wouldn't if this starts to happen in the regular season in any dogma sack three or four times a game then we started to say though may get this dude out of there and get the dude in there. That could actually extend the play. But you know what makes a mysterious key is because we all know that ryan paces job is on the line but is it as a as a as a bears fan. I would say ryan pace. His job is on the line through the barest. That though but i don't care. I'm telling you what i think. I'm asking bears organization. You know because. I drafted a young quarterback. That's my point though key. Is that slight wiggle room. That adds to the mystery of it. That says if i start andy dolan if he doesn't do his thing for three or four games then i can say well look. We gave the rookie enough time to learn on the job and that could bring him in even if he's marginal that gives me another year to see how he pans out the b. I understand instead of though saying who is the best quarterback. Who's the best if you're sitting there as a basketball player. If it's between you and i are starting freddie and somebody's like who's better player i i should start I'm the it's some things are easy to see with your eyes. And i think going attack notion of same. What gives me the most longevity with my job. That's what i feel like as a bears fan bothers me a little. I'm not saying right key. I'm not saying he's not doing the right thing for him or for the bears organization. I'm saying it's fan. I wanna see the best player. Start i if andy dalton goes in and he's one into let's say he's wanting to play the rams out first game so they're gonna lose that game. That's another not saw justin fields. I don't know that they're going to lose that game. I don't know that. I got to wait and see because i don't know what the rams rams got matthew stafford and a bunch of yeast. What that's what. I do know so you don't think the rams are one of the best teams in nfl. It's not it doesn't matter jay. It doesn't matter you don't have the super bowl. Every team in the national football league is good even though they bad you can lose on any given sunday literally you can lose on any given some falcon because our last because you still have to jail. They still have to put things together. I know aaron. Donald j i know jalen ramsey is there. Okay i get it. But there's guys and khalil mack and there's other guys on the chicago bears as well. They're not rolling into the new stadium. Los angeles to take a ale to fly away back to chicago. So let's see what happens week one as i was saying. If he's wanting to and they wanna move to just. It feels at that point in time. He has the opportunity to save his job. That way if you put justin fields in in all of a sudden you are you finish the year seven and ten the probably gonna fire you. They're probably gonna find. But if you put him in at a point you start to get some momentum and they start to look a certain way in and they don't make the playoffs. I can sell that to the owners into the fan base because switching out a new coat bringing in a new coach to try to justify or try to get this young quarterback up to speed. That may not liked him. The same situation. That happened with matt nagy taken over for mitch. Trubisky a guy. He didn't like you putting yourself in a bad situation. I just hate the politics of coach politics. I wanna see people go for it. Yeah i hear you antonio. Charlotte was the winner. Dr pepper colin. Lauder triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six and telling you the queen city. What you got. Boss yes sir. Hey man he's going to be like this here when they get to their game. Aaron donald he's gonna miss up their whole offensive line. There's gonna be in a whole bunch of disarray. So it's going gonna be three in our three and half three now their defense about man and if he's not giving those ten so by the phone calls of The second game of the year just a field would be in the game. It's going to be because you know anybody could win. Signed for donald. He's too tough and there's all sorts of math the best tender so it'll be between the fourth quarter our first game of the second week tony. I'm with you on here especially we start hearing all these rumblings from the locker room but how much they like justin fields with sure how they're behind jeb because he's the rocky road baby. He's the ice gress right. Nothing wrong new ice cream. But you know what i'm not gonna put that new ice cream out there behind that offensive line with that dude on the other side that eats up people donald. Okay wait until week four. I wouldn't put him out so week. Four versa lines. Yeah he'll be. Dan eat his kneecaps. The lions have a chance to try to win that game kicker yet not still done. I think they're going to call you keyshawn at about a second too key saw jay zubin brought to you by mako when life throws you just say better get mako. Mako dot com to get online estimate. Today thanks for joining keyshawn. J. woolens zuma freddie immature shawn johnson jay williams and espn radio. The espn app sirius. Xm channel eighty and espn news. And you're smart speaker man. We can't wait till the guy to play with the new england pages part of his. Nfl career from nineteen ninety nine two thousand and six. He has remained wiggins. Hit him on twitter. J. wigs eighty-five he joins us here. Thanks for goodyear hotline j. You said on your twitter account that the patrick the patriots releasing cam newton was a huge mistake. Why i think it's simple right. You're going to hand over the keys to a team that we all expect up here in new england. That is a playoff contender that they saw what you did in the off season as far as bringing in free agency. You got a handless keys over to a rookie quarterback knowing that a lot of work to quarterbacks are going to take some lumps there's gonna be some growing pains so for me. I just think it's a huge mistake. Think about the pressure. You're putting on this young kid. I'll see her as pats fans this. Bill's biggest year. You didn't make the playoffs last year. Now at all routing on the shoulders of this young kid and there's really no backup you know he'll force them in there. They could've easily started camp for the first couple of games and a things didn't work out. You go to the kids. It's much less pressure on him. Jemaine what do you think were factors that led into them releasing cam. Well i. i think there's a couple of factors here on this one right. I think the fact that There's a little bit of vaccination him not being vaccinated. No people are talking about that. No bill said yesterday. That had to do this. But i think urban meyer kinda gave us a look behind the curtain on how coaches are looking at unvaccinated guys. I think that's part of it. I think it's the the fact that when you look at mack jones he's played well throat preseason and training camp and i think the other thing is i don't think. Tm rarely in the sense that you know bill is probably telling them all season long on all off tra Loss training camp. That you're going to be the guy because you don't start a guy in the third preseason game in the first preseason game and the second preseason game cut them. But i think they've got to the point where they felt like the young kids could do everything they asked to do. And cam just wasn't having it because he doesn't want to be a backup. And i think he felt like maybe bill kind of pulled the rug out from underneath them. And that's why you know. I think it was more about him going. You know what. I don't wanna back role and i. I'd rather release being filter ever favor releasing him germany wigan's former. Nfl tied in super bowl. Champion with the new england patriots. My former teammate. In popeye's to join us. This sanjay will zubin wiggins when you look at the situation we can. We had a conversation a couple of weeks ago. About being the starter. How do you think this offense will operate under mack jones. Well can you know better than anybody. I mean you've been in the league before and how. It's very difficult for a young i to take over the keys of the car and not offensively. They're gonna have to basically say. Hey we gotta run the football. We gotta play good defense and offensive line. You gotta give him time. But we're gonna make the we're gonna make everything is easy as possible. I could see this offense going back to. When i was there back in two thousand and one i thought in it was what we were run first team. We played good defense. Always the ball we through short and we were. We didn't make any mistakes. Turn the football over. I think that's what you're going to try to see them. Do with mack jones. But you know kids young guys always gotta make some stakes because the game is so different and defensive gonna throw everything out maxa jones especially knowing that he can't maneuver like that they're gonna throw a lot of stuff out and you know he's gonna take some of his lumps. You just hope. Those those lumps don't a lead to losses rj. I'm asking you look where your so. If you're looking at the end of the season how has mack jones performed and how the patriots performed. Well i still think. They a playoff team based on the talent that they have. I think what you're gonna see. What mack jones i. I'm hoping that he's able to kind of make those those leads and be a quarterback that goes out there and just as more of a game manager in the sense of a rookie where you go okay. This kid didn't make a ton of mistakes. You know you didn't throw a whole bunch of touch out for a whole bunch. 'cause they didn't ask you to do that but he didn't make mistakes. He put the team in a position where they play where they could win. Football games defensively about fail position. So i think that's what you'll probably see. What matt jones Based on things that i'm hearing coming out of Out of fox. The kids pretty intelligent so hopefully that leads to him being a good decision making love when people say we the quarterbacks intelligent oh damn quarterbacks intelligent that's why they play the position. People need to stop that levels of intelligence to you know this wiki who've the backup what are they gonna do. If god forbid he had to miss a few games. I tell you i mean you know even j. will or even fray might have a better chance. They saw the way. I'm looking at this position. And that's that's the one thing that's why i don't feel went to camp and wanna camp to be the backup because if it's magic your backup. I think you probably looked at it and go. Hey some happens to mac. We've got him. We know struggling a little bit last year but nother year in the system. When you go into it with rally ryan hoyer kind of being a backup and these practice squad. Then you'd get the kid gilbert but out of dallas. You really don't have a backup plan. So i mean i guess it's probably jacoby buyers and no. He's played quarterback at state at a couple of touchdown froze last year but a smack her. Yeah this team is some serious serious trouble in a month with a j. wigs wiggins from an nfl tied in from boston. Keyshawn jay zubin on. Espn radio if i tell you that cam newton is not going to be on the roster if he does not play in the nfl ever again. J. wigs what is his legacy in the nfl. I think his legacy is a guy that came in where a lot of expectations of. he's just other athletes. he he's. He's not the traditional quarterback and then a guy who basically opened up the door for a lot of players like lamar jackson. You see some of those guys And the fact that god wanted. Mvp got his team to a superbowl. So it can't be done with not the traditional your quarterback it's additional pocket passer. I know guys that. Have couple of forum like michael vick and kind of a donovan mcnabb. Now but i think he's trying to change that because of sizes athletic ability and the ability that he had to be able to go out there and take his team basically to the last game and be. You know a couple of plays away from winning the championship. I think that's the thing that you're gonna see about him. Newton legacy and the fact that he brought swag back into the nfl. That's not legs and we got started. I'll make sure out to spice rising got thanks to me. Have a good weekend appreciate you. My friend j i. I'm not really hungry based on that conversation. Las chicken right no. I'm not a hoss fan. I'm the only one in my family that does not like hot sauce. Backstory you know to that is wiggins play with me in the jets right and so he was one of a rotation of guys that we had there were young that prior to us leaving the facility to go to the plane on our buses.

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of balado on football here on the big blue view radio network. I am nicholasville lotto here to talk about this sunday. Slate is giants lists sunday slate since the giants ended up losing thirty to twenty nine to the washington football team on thursday night football myself. Joe di leone chris. Flom ed valentine in the crew will be discussing that but this podcast is more centralized around the national football league and everything. That's going on in the national football league and we had a bunch of really really interesting games on this slate. We got to see the raiders on a short week. Travelling to pittsburgh because remember. They won that emotional game against the baltimore ravens on monday night football. We saw them without their star running back. Go to pittsburgh and be the pittsburgh steelers team that just defeated the buffalo bills in buffalo in week one so that was really interesting. Turn of affairs for the raiders. Jon gruden in derek carr who definitely come away as winners on this week car actually ended up leaving this game with a slight injury but came back in and just played one heck of a game. I mean through two games right now. Derek carr has eight hundred seventeen passing yards and four touchdowns against the ravens in the steelers. Defenses to top units in the national football league. So i think credit is deserved for this jon. Gruden coach team. Because they're much maligned. I mean what's actually going on there with mike mayock jon gruden. Some of their player selections are really really head-scratching they had former top five picks where a healthy scratches from just a couple of years ago. But i mean derek carr was able to go twenty eight of thirty seven for two eighty two in two touchdowns in this game actually utilizing their twenty twenty first round pick for once it seems like henry rugs third who had a long sixty one yard touchdown catch in also had five receptions for one hundred thirteen yards within that. So the raiders are now to know. And you gotta look around the league. There's not a lot of undefeated teams. There's only two in the afc right now and they both happened to be in the afc west. And it's not the chiefs. It's the raiders in the broncos. And then in the nfc south you have the buccaneers and panthers and then in the nfc west you have the cardinals rams and forty niners every other division at least every team in that division has one loss and the giants have to. Unfortunately no wins. But that's neither here nor there. This week was filled with a bunch of injuries. A lot of players who ended up getting dinged up. The severity of those injuries aren't quite known yet. But players like to a ton of a low The miami dolphins quarterback ended up believing the buffalo game with an injury and that game was just horrendous. Buffalo ended up putting a thirty five to nothing. Beat down on them and yes. They weren't using too because he was injured but they were using to kobe. Set pretty established starter in the national football league. But miami's defense didn't really have an answer for buffalo's offense and miami's offense couldn't get out of their own way. A lot of drop passes from albert wilson and joachim grand just a lot of sloppy fundamentalists type of football. And then we also buffalo's rushing attack take effect which is something that is not necessarily a utilize aspect of their offense unless josh allens legs but this time it was devon single. Terry who had a touchdown and zach moss. Who had two touchdowns. Although single terry probably looked a little bit. Better than zach moss. Who had a bad fumble in the first half of that game but there were other injuries to jarvis. Landry left the thirty one to twenty one victory over the houston. Texans wear also tyrod taylor. That game in that game was actually competitive. When tyrod taylor was the quarterback he rushed a touchdown and you could see he was kind of ginger. Walking off the field he ended up coming back onto the field when the offense had the football and then he ended up leaving and sales had to come in and and it was just downhill from there for houston a team. That did not have a lot of expectations. Coming into the nfl rightfully so the roster does not have a lot of talent on it. Especially with the shawn watson going through his situation at the moment but they were able to be competitive for most of this game against cleveland. Menlo viscous chenault also left the jacksonville's twenty three to thirteen loss to the denver. Broncos and other injuries just included baker mayfield. Derek carr christian mccaffrey. Mccaffrey alvin cook. Daryl henderson and mike edmonds. All of those players ended up returning to the field. Carson wentz also went down for the colts. He's a player who ended up leaving the game. For jacob s to come into thrown interception could not lead around back into that colts affair. But just monitor all these situations. And i'm sure by the time you're listen to this. We may have a little bit more clarity on what's actually going on there now. I think some of the more interesting games of the slate. We're in the four four twenty five window. Because honestly i was watching the red zone without the giants on and while i was watching red zone at one o'clock window was kind of boring. Snooze fest for a lot of it but at four o'clock window was really really entertaining with the cowboys. Unfortunately defeating the los angeles chargers. Twenty two seventeen the tampa bay buccaneers putting it on atlanta. Forty two twenty five despite the fact that they had to garbage defensive touchdowns at the end of the game was actually kinda close before that. I don't wanna call them garbage but it was just like atlanta forgot how to play offense and land actually establish some sort of offense with cordeiro patterson running back which was a little bit different. I know they've been trying to use that but it wasn't as much mike davis who was much more cordeiro patterson especially in the red zone which is frustrating for mike davis fantasy owners and then minnesota at arizona now the minnesota arizona game thirty four to thirty three vikings loose in glendale and the vikings did everything correctly down the stretch of his game to put themselves into position to win it. But their fuel goal kicker greg joseph botched the thirty seven yard field goal sent it wide right. You know just like norwood back in the super bowl for the new york giants and it was cardinals. Ended up winning this football game. And i gotta tell you. A cardinals team is just exciting. To watch kyle. Murray yeah he threw to boneheaded picks in the third and fourth quarter of this game but he had four hundred passing was twenty. Nine of thirty six had three touchdowns with his arm one with his legs. He's always a threat to run the football he extemporised plays so well. And this team has so many weapons deandre hopkins had a touchdown but after that he was relatively quiet. It was rondell more rookie out of perdue. Who had seven catches for one hundred fourteen yards and a touchdown max williams the big tight end. Who was drafted out of the university of minnesota. Awhile back by the baltimore. Ravens didn't really pay him out there and now he's a carnal. He had seven catches on seven targets for ninety four yards. Christian kirk had a huge thirty five yard catch on a cover zero call an important third down situation against vikings. It was just really really fun. To watch this cardinals offense just maneuver and then when you watch their defense to they have chandler jones they have. Jj watt they have isaiah simmons they have even collins rookie linebacker tulsa and they have probably one of the best defense bags in the national football league from a technical standpoint and buddha baker who's a little bit undersized but he's incredibly incredibly physical and smart on the back end. Defense is not flipside watching the vikings. I mean they're all fence just random down. Cook had twenty two carries for one hundred thirty one yards to open the game. Kirk cousins found. K j osborne on sixty four yard. We'll route off play action and it was just fireworks going on similar to the sunday night. Football game with the chiefs in baltimore was offensive. Just output from both of these teams and it was really fun to watch. unfortunately for the minnesota vikings. They put themselves in the position to win. But kickers have to make kicks. You have to execute executions everything. The new york giants know that and unfortunately for the vikings the cardinals divas of line does not jump into the neutral zone alive. The new york giants on thursday night football so they did not the vikings that is get another opportunity to kick that thirty seven field goal and the cardinals ended up leaving the stadium with the win.

This cowboys charters game was one of the worst officiated games i've seen in a while was just very very slow because there were so many flags and so many penalties being thrown him. The charges were penalized twelve times for ninety nine yards. Dallas eight for seventy six and a lot of these penalties were just very ticky tacky which is very questionable in general. I mean the one penalty where jurong curse of the cowboys was called for a pass interference. Jared cook in the ball got tipped up in intercepted by dallas. They called it back and said it was it was not there was no. There was hardly any contact there. I don't know how these refs end up seeing these types of things and that one against dallas. But there were also calls that went against the chargers was back and forth between the officiating crew screaming over each of those teams and the one that comes to my mind. Is the justin herber sack. It wasn't a penalty but justin herbert's backpedaling. With about five thirty left in the game to second and goal situation and the chargers are down by three and ends up way way back away. From the line of scrimmage and he tosses the football but the refs rule that his forward progress had been stopped even strong the football and they will did a sack. And i just don't understand exactly why that was ruled a sack and this wasn't the only game with bad officiating to be honest because you look at the seattle tennessee game. That officiating was pretty horrendous. That julio jones catch at the end of the first half that was a touchdown it was ruled a touchdown on the field and yet they overturned it. And it seems like this. This league this year doesn't want to overturn as many calls. I don't understand how they overturn that because they were camera angles where you can clearly see. Julio jones second foot in before touches the white line. So i think that was a horrendous. Call and i also think the safety on russell wilson in overtime. That would have been a fun way for the overtime game to end for tennessee. Ended up getting the win anyway. So it's a relevant. But how is that. Not a safety on russell wilson. He was in the end zone. he was sacked. He threw the football to which should have been some sort of intentional. Grounding or some sort of ruled safety of his full momentum was stopped but as he was wrapped up at least more so than just herber was. I don't know Just i felt like that game was was really really slow de so a lot of people talking about on twitter. So i'm not the only one with that take away but it was disappointing to see dallas end up winning that close game against a formidable team in the chargers. A team that the giants are going to have to see at some point this season as well. I was a hard earned road. Wait for the cowboys. Who had just done really well on the ground to be honest because tony paula at thirteen carries for one hundred and nine yards and a touchdown in this game. Zeke had sixteen carries for seventy one yards and a touchdown as well and they were doing a lot offensively. They were using jet sweeps to enhance their running game. They were really attacking the short and intermediate parts of the field. Amari cooper was kind of shut out for most the game you at three catches for twenty four yards but a lot of short passes the cd lamb lot of short passes and just spreading the football around two tight ends. And then cedrick wilson. Who's also in there. Because michael gallup is out on. I r with the injury right now and then on the charter side of the football mike. Williams had a really really good game. He had more targets in keenan allen double digits. He had ten targets. Seven of them for ninety one yards and a touchdown and every time you look at red zone. He's doing something down the field. I mean his longest catch was only twenty seven yards but i feel like he had a lot of catches within that area of the field. And he's just kind of coming into his own. Finally with a top ten pick along with john. Ross and corey davis. Both of those two receivers are no on the team. That drafted them. But he's still there with los angeles having a really good season and if he stays healthy. This could be a really potent passing attack for justin. Herber austin was also in this game. He got took a pretty bad hit from one of the dallas secondary pieces and ended up leaving the game briefly which this was toward the end of the game with what seems like it could have been a head injury something to just monitor but overall this game was a lot slower than many people anticipated. This game had a fifty three and a half over under something like that at some point this week and only scored thirty seven points. So let down from an offensive standpoint. But this other four o'clock game definitely didn't and that was tom brady. And the atlanta falcons squaring up and the falcons kinda got their kicked a decent amount in his game but there was a point of this game. It was close. Tampa bay came out just slinging. They were up fourteen nothing. They went into halftime twenty one to ten and then at one point it was twenty eight to ten after a four play. Eighteen yard. Drive where mike evans called a ball from. Tom brady on the one yard line. But then all of a sudden the falcons were able to mount couple offense drives kyle pits was doing really really well. He didn't have a touchdown or anything but he's really well in the short intermediate parts of the field. Matt ryan was much better this week than he was against the philadelphia. Eagles and these touchdowns were capped off by calvin ridley and then cordeiro patterson who had a really ridiculous touchdown but then towards the end of the game in the fourth quarter. When the falcons football and was ten point game that ryan got really really reckless. Through to pick sixes to the falcons. Thousands also turned the ball over on downs. So it was not great. fourth quarter. football. From the falcons who are probably going to be a team. Picking in the top five similar to a lot of other teams the jets. I mean i hope the giants are not in that conversation. Feel like the giants are a better football team than but as of right now being in to losing the way they did. I can see a lot of people putting them. They're in their power rankings. I feel like they're a little bit better than that but they got approved on the field. They got to win football games because it has not been pretty at least a established some often. But here i am talking about. The giants will save that for the christian. Joe show but the buccaneers right. Now tom brady. This dude is forty. Four years old. And he's slinging. The man threw for five touchdowns. Two hundred and seventy six yards passing. I mean that's so efficient. Twenty four of thirty six no interceptions. He's just keeps hooking up with his buddy rob gronkowski for multiple touchdowns in a game on cad. Two touchdowns was four for thirty. Nine god another touchdown four for sixty two antonio brown only at one catch for seventeen yards quieter than many anticipated but tom brady was spreading the football around. I mean he had several different receivers tyler. Johnson cameron breed roggio antonio brown oj. Howard leonard fournette rob gronkowski. Mike evans chris. Gaba all caught passes from tom brady. He's just spreading the wealth down there in tampa bay. They ended up going to know in the season sharing that spot atop of the nfc south with the carolina. Panthers who are also to know they were able to run the football control o'clock against the saints and just keep the saints offense off the field saints. Offense just couldn't do a lot in to their credit. They're missing several coaches. Because of code protocol right now jameis winston only through the football twenty two times despite the fact that they were trailing most of the game. Alvin kamara at five yards on the ground on eight carries is just carolina jumped out to an early leonice game. Sam darnold looked very very solid. I would say he found brandon's ostra on the first drive of the game later on in the first half he ends up finding. Dj more christian. Mccaffrey with somebody who was involved tackled a lot down by the one yard line and then ended up punching the football into the end zone a little bit later in the game. I mean when you have a player christian mccaffrey. You've got to use. The panthers knows that full well twenty four carries in this game for seventy two yards and also caught five passes for sixty five despite the fact that he was cramping up pretty significantly in the fourth quarter and had to keep leading the game for tuba hubbard the rookie out of oklahoma state who had eight carries for ten yards. Sam darnold now to know much different atmosphere than the new york. Jets the team that he beat last week here in carolina but carolina has not played on the road yet. Carolina ends up traveling to houston and then to dallas to straight games in texas for the next two weeks two games that you expect them to win against the texans. Don't really expect them to win. Against dallas but anything can happen. So kudos to the sam darnold lead carolina panthers with matt rule another game. I think we should touch on. Is the chicago bears. Getting their first win of the season against the cincinnati bengals. His game was odd from the sense that it was never necessarily a blowout either way it was twenty to seventeen win for the chicago bears and at halftime it was seven. Nothing chicago but there was a point in this game when cincinnati. Trailed seventeen to three at that time. This was around the time. That andy dolan believing the game and just fields came in because andy dolan his knee injury. They don't know if it's going to be serious. Don't was nine of eleven. For fifty six yards and a touchdown justin fields was six thirteen for sixty yards with an interception but also added ten carries for thirty one yards. But there was a point in this game or joe borough through three consecutive passes and all three of those passes were interceptions. The first one was an interception that he threw. It was tended to tyler boyd. And he didn't see. Roquan smith underneath smith cauda in return. To all the way for a touchdown the next drive. They run the football. Joe mixing on the first play and then on the second insists he tried to throw towards t higgins but it was intercepted again and then the next time they had the football they come out with a pass and it was intercepted yet again. I think it was just a remarkable turn of events into joe boroughs credit after that interception the next two drives. He came out there passing. He came out three passes in a row taking deep shots to jomar shays before he ended up throwing a deep ball to your march. As for a forty two yard touchdown. And then another touchdown. Pass through t higgins towards the end of the game after the bengals defense intercepted justin fields. And it made this game really close to me. Twenty two seventeen. You look at the team stats. Collectively the time of possession was about even cincinnati. Outgained chicago a little bit but cincinnati. Just couldn't stop turn the football over and even with those turnovers bears hardly barely won this football game so i think you look at cincinnati situation at the moment there in a very very tough division with the ravens the steelers both whom or one in one right now same record as a cincinnati bengals and the cleveland browns who are also one on one and they gotta play pittsburgh next week in. Pittsburgh and pittsburgh isn't the team. I think that many expected coming into this season. I don't know how much ben rothlisberger has left in his arm. They're struggling to run. The football nausea harrison amazing talent but cincinnati can win against pittsburgh. I don't think that's crazy to think or to say this pittsburgh steelers defense. I think it has some holes on the back end. Despite the fact that they have a very very good front and they had minkah fitzpatrick back. There i think the cornerbacks can be exposed a little bit against the cincinnati passing attack. I don't expect to win. But i would not be shocked. But then after that they have jacksonville the packers and then there at the lions and then they have the jets two games at that so they have some easier winnable games. I don't think the bengals are playoff team or anything like that. But i do think they can possibly make some things interesting if they stay healthy. Because joe borough definitely shows resilience kid could make mistakes and then he can bounce back from said mistakes. Speaking of mistakes the new england patriots put the put the work. I guess you could say on. Zach wilson rookie quarterback which isn't a surprise. We know bill. Belichick track record against young quarterbacks and the patriots beat the jets. Twenty five to six zach. Wilson threw four interceptions in this game. And it wasn't like mack. Jones was bombing. The ball down the field or anything. They had a pretty conservative approach. Sixteen carries for sixty two yards and touchdown for damian harris james white also out of touch down on the ground. We're really just throwing short against his jets team and not looking to stretch the field. Just kind of walk away with a win. They jumped out to an early ten. Nothing lead so there's also that kind of a take into account here as to why the patriots kind of opening up their offense but damn bill belichick really gives fits these younger quarterbacks. A lot of people have linked to this game wilson. Sam darnold game on monday night. Football against the new england patriots back in twenty nineteen when he said he was seeing ghosts. Quote unquote seeing ghosts. So zach was it. It looked like he was necessarily seeing ghosts. There was i think two of those interceptions probably definitely his fault. There was another one. That wasn't the other one. I guess you know probably could be assigned to him just a little bit. But he's a young quarterback. I think this year is going to be a little bit rough for the new york jets as are a lot of years but this kid has some rare armed talent and i think if robert salah and joe douglas surround him with the right playmakers the right system and give him a a defense. That's probably a little bit better than the defense they have now. Then the jets could be a team that can actually be respectable in the future if salah ends up proving himself as a coach which i mean. He's two years into two games into his head coaching career. I mean i think he carries himself while he says all the right things. Similar to joe judge but that doesn't always translate to wins and another game. I wanted to touch on before we get out of. Here is the rams winning twenty seven to twenty four against the indianapolis colts in this game was unfortunate for the colts. Go line offense on the first play. Or i drive this game. The colts drove down. The field lemmon plays for forty nine yards and got down to the one yard line where they were stuffed three consecutive times. Trying to run up the middle with jonathan taylor against aaron donald and this just incredible defense the rams have then fourth and goal at the one. They tried to play action. Carson wentz was sacked for a loss of nine by leonard. Floyd two drives later. When the rams have the football a similar things happens down at the three yard line instead of trying to run on third down which that's what they did before after getting the bald to the three yard line carson. Wentz went to pass. But it was one of those shovel passes that we see. Andy reid in the chiefs run all the time or carson wentz opens up to the right with a running back running to the flat trying to sell a flat row and then he shovel passes it to the tight end and the title was jack doyle but it was read really well by the rams and intercepted the rams end up winning this football game only by three and those are two possessions where the colts just screwed up their offense at that point of the field. I mean worst case scenario. They don't turn the football over there. They get six points there instead of fourteen and a whole different game in a whole different story. But in his stead frank reich in the colts drop to owen to cause offense was really inefficient near the goal line. I mean they're going up against a really really good defense and it's hard to score against defenses when they're when they're backed up like that so many different playmakers in talented guys like jalen ramsey on that defense so i could see wives difficult but can't make mistakes like that carson wentz and you have to finish especially given often of line as good as the indianapolis colts have have clinton nelson back got ryan kelly. They just couldn't punch it in against aaron donald and that's why aaron donald is one of the best but i think a bright spot in this game other than the coffee narratives. That is obviously matt cooper cup. They go out. They get coffee. According to sunday night football michaels was raving about it. How they get the facility before everybody would have breakfast together. Drink some coffee talk about football. Guess what that translates to lebanon targets nine catches for one hundred sixty three yards and two touchdowns. Cup should've had two touchdowns last week too but he was tackled at the one yard line ended up with one touch down and rubber would still had nine targets in his game. Called five of them for sixty four cooper cup is the main receiving weapon the main threat on this offense and he's really benefiting from the fact that him and matt stafford eat breakfast together. So i'm all about this coffee. Narrative is being discussed. I really hope. Daniel jones and kennedy golladay end up. You know going to get a cup of joe at dunkin donuts starbucks wherever the heck they want to go because that kind of poor is invaluable as we can see but michael pittman junior somebody. I wanna talk about the second year. Wide receiver at usc. Second round pick last year by the colts had a home rookie season in a bad passing offense last year with rivers as the quarterback but yet eight catches on twelve targets for one hundred twenty three yards in his game against one of the best pass. Defenses in the league and jalen ramsey wasn't following him so it wasn't like he was just beating the ramsey but he was doing a great job finding voids on stick type of routes on six yard curls to be ironic enough just in between zone coverage middle zone coverage. Every time i watched. I saw that but he also getting open on sevens. He was getting hit on vertical routes. He hit for a forty two yard gain. I'm one of these catches as well. So he's a player that i was high on coming out of the draft and looks like he had one of these. Small mini breakout games in a very very tough match-up at home and these defacto one receiving target here. In who else do they have zac. Pascal's solid player who scores touchdowns he did in this game but he doesn't have the athletic upside or the receiving skills that michael pittman possesses to y. Hilton is hurt pairs campbell. Been playing his game so pittman is the guy in this offense him carson. Wentz are also closed buddies. I'm not sure if they go and get coffee. I don't know their breakfast habits. But pittman junior is definitely someone to monitor if you're into fantasy football he's on your waiver wire because we had a disappointing week one because he has those athletic traits to be a true number one receiver with a quarterback who used to get a lot out of former playmakers that he had on his team whether that be tight ends running backs or receivers. Carson wentz has a big arm. he doesn't always process everything all that well. And he's injured right now but if he comes back healthy pittman junior the number one receiver on an offense. That isn't inept i think in some fantasy football formats. He's definitely someone to look into. Possibly pick up. And i mean i'm just witnesses kansas city chiefs game in this baltimore ravens. Victory thirty six to thirty five victory by the ravens were clyde edwards alleges. Just put the ball on the ground right before harrison bucker could trod on out bearing kick the ball between the uprights as a devastating loss and a devastating mistake by clyde edwards e layer. The ravens mean. Good on them to get a win. That's an important victory now. The chiefs joined the chargers teams the afc west but the loss but we all know the chiefs are the chiefs and they can easily bounce back and just do incredibly crazy things to win. Football games home almost did that in this game as well. I mean some of the touchdowns. He threw the one. The byron pringle Excellent catch and run on that. Play the travis. Kelsey play was another. Catch and run crazy touchdown and tyree killers shutdown in this game three catches for fourteen yards the demarcus robbins and had a long touchdown catch of thirty three yards. There's so many weapons and so much speed on this team that i couldn't imagine being a fan of team. This exciting with a quarterback like patrick mahomes honest with you and now get to play the chargers at arrowhead next week before traveling to philadelphia to play the eagles the ravens credit to them. Thirty six to thirty five sure week. They ended up getting this win. I mean it was gifted to them by clad allaire but they still did so much in the fourth quarter to put themselves in that position. I mean lamar. Jackson had those two rushing touchdowns they were just running the football down the chiefs throat so they earned every bit of this win so kudos to the baltimore. Ravens forgetting that w also many about their ability to run the football despite the fact that they lost jk dobbins gus edwards and justice hill. They are doing this with devante freeman. Who had a huge huge run. I mean that's just speaks to scheme that speaks to greg. Roman this offensive line threat of lamar jackson. Which is probably the main reason as to why this happens because you have to worry about him on the backside or up the gap on a gap power. Whatever the ravens wanna do because he's so versatile and athletic we have to worry about him then allows the rest of the players on the offense to gain an edge of the defense because you have to account for the skill set of somebody as talented as lamar jackson but ravens travel to detroit and then they travel to denver two straight away games coming up all right everybody. This has been a brief overview of philosophy on football here on the big blue view. Radio network is discussing all the main talking points from week to. We have big blue view.

Jameis Winston Named Saints Starting QB

"He goes i'm on jalen jacoby. What exactly is that. We have some interesting sounds of air. Rogers we have an update on the availability and limitations or lack thereof on dak prescott but we start the show with some new news from new orleans. James wisden we all know is going to happen. But now it's official. He has been named the starter of the saints. He said he wants to carry the torch from drew brees and stay with the saints a long time to see him as long term quarterback in new orleans. David jacoby the answer is yes and i'm already making him favorite story of redemption for this year's nfl season. Now here's a couple of years ago to lead the nfl and passing. He threw over thirty touchdowns but he also broke the interceptions record. He had to go find a new location. His previous location as tom brady. And where's the super bowl. He goes the new orleans. sits behind. drew brees gives it to a quarterback battle with tastes him. he'll and then all of a sudden has to earn his way back via his contract. Now is opportunity to be a starting quarterback when we look around the league in a couple of years. I'm looking at you. If particular pittsburgh i believe. They're going to be as couple of squats. That should've taken flyers on jamie's that didn't now. Shopping is gonna take advantage of his potential. He's going to unlock his potential. Hopefully they give michael thomas. Back healthy alvin. Kamara extremely explosive. This is going to be a great opportunity. For james to sean. We know what sean payne did with. Drew brees over those games. And we know what he did with teddy bridgewater last year. He messed around and put a taste of hill. I think. Just try to challenge himself or something but it's just preseason but jameson has looked good in this. Preseason you mentioned it he can always throw the ball down the field however sometimes just ends up in the wrong people's hands shawn payne is going to work with him. Kit down the turnovers because we know the explosiveness the touchdowns out of there and listen even without mike thomas. He's got some weapons that he can throw to. And then mike. Thomas should be coming back this season. I'm gonna say. I'm very high on this. I'm very high jameis winston with the saints. I think he's going to be with the for a while. I think he's going to have a successful season. Hopefully they can put together as a team in a tough division next. We have this from the dallas cowboys. They're saying that there are no limitations on dak prescott none at all. Forget the shoulder. Mri forget the ankle. But jalen do you think that a healthy jack makes them a favorite in the nfc east it does and it makes them my favorite as a matter of fact and it's because of number four shall to jalen hurts in philly. I know that they're not going to win. The division this year but i'm rooting for him to do and washington has a stout defence. But i think the cowboys are gonna put it together. The best led by jack if particular if their office of line could be healthy. Ezekiel elliott run the football and hold onto it and not bumble six times. They have weapons on offense. You know right. Know they still have amari cooper right. You know they got. Cd lamb right. They have weapons and dak before last year extremely durable extremely durable maury the first part of his career so i think once he gets back under center if they're able to protect him. I think you'll be just fine without a pitch count and you look at. What dak did before. He got hurt and he played in all sixteen regular season games in two thousand sixteen through two thousand. Nine hundred was very durable. Yes if he's healthy. Thing is great for the cowboys. However in my mind it does not make them the favorites to win the nfc. Least i had that going to the washington football team because you mentioned this stout defence. Their defense isn't just out. It is almost impossible to score on them sweat. They got a guy named pain on the whole kamaz. Dick like they have. They would just talked about chasing but they have one of the best defense in the entire league and they almost beat the books in the playoffs with a guy named the heineke heineke before last year and jalen they brought in the journeymen. The bearded one ryan fits magic is going to wave his magic one and win the nfc ease. They're my favorite will track this throughout the season. Mr rose i think that there's still some magic left and fitzpatrick and that defense is going to hold opposing teams under twenty almost every single week. I don't have to tell this to people to play fantasy but they're receiver. Maclaurin is obese to he going to have a big year. I'm not mad at that. Except if you're the dallas cowboys and you have back under center and they have ryan patrick under center and they beat you this year. That's not good going forward. Because i think washington is doing with. The denver. broncos did a few years ago when they added paid manny build it and they will come a quarterback at some point is gonna shake loose. We don't know what's going to happen with watson situation eh roger situation and so we're going to be having this conversation so i would put it out there right now in washington build it. They will come. But i think this is the cowboys year to win this division. That's interesting because fitzpatrick could play one year and then the quarterback washing football team with that defense. The other side of the ball could be aaron rodgers because we all know what the situation is in green bay. And here's what. He had to say about his expectations. This season. look. I think we all know what's at stake and i talked about that a little bit today about perspective and how important Perspective is the focus on the season and enjoy. So we're just going to enjoy this season. It's it's titled town it's championship or disappointment to spend every year championship or disappointment does iva theory. Even if they win the championship. He's gone regardless. What do you think about him saying championship more disappointment. Well it's not like he's not speaking on a team that hasn't been in the nfl version of the final four. The last two years and so we can't allow what's happening with him in management not seeing eye to eye cloud our judgment or what we saw from them as a football team and they also have a great defense bottle way they also have devante atoms. Who could probably be in this final year with the team so this is a really good football team and he just happened to be the Raining mvp rogers the rain in mvp. So so i understand where he's coming from. But i like you believe that. This is going to be his final season with the green bay. Packers i don't think bringin in randall. Cobb is going to keep him around there. I mean even mentioned breaking nappies serious. But he's trying to bring back the old from when he was playing quarterback but something tells me that whether they win a championship or not. This is aaron rodgers final year in green bay and ut's earlier in the show. Mr rose. i'm gonna go all the way. Their magin him on the washington football team next season. We'll have plenty of time to talk about. He's not as we got his god in some. We'll be talking about that all next summer. Well we can talk about. Now is a piece of video. That is so perfect that needs to be broken down in detail. So you and i need to go to the table. Well during the astros game you know how those sometimes they show the fans in the crowd. That happens very often but this fan seemed to notice that he was being shown on the broadcast and changes behavior. Regardless of the woman. Next to mr rose in this meteo well what happened was he loves his supposed to be at the game where he was supposed to be at the game but not at the game with that person. This is a case. If i could be where everybody wanted me to be when everybody wanted me to be there. I'll be confused. Chopped to tell you i gotta say something. I don't know what's happening here. But something tells me that. There's someone that he doesn't want to see all right now. He's watching on. Espn thought i got away with. This was a couple of nights ago. Chicken next was watching it with glasses. He's gonna take your hand off her. Like i love this so much. I love this video so much. She's a she's she's being shown eye contact with the camera and then slowly his head off. It's someone named sarah. That's very somebody. Shares very upset that we're showing. Espn right now. That guy also. So i would like to apologize to him. I'm sure it was just a coincidence. I'm sure we misread. Read the instigator. Houston the next three years next. Ben simmons will he be packed with the seventy sixers. There's an interesting report suggests. He might stay tuned for that. You're watching the pistons uniform football fans. I'm here to tell you that. Nfl nfl. sunday ticket. Dot tv is like having front row seats to every live out of market game every sunday afternoon. No matter where you live that is a lot of football.

You'll have to pour everything into get their other times. You just need to dig deep and show some guts to be brave and never let anything stand in the way of what you can accomplish. Then there are the days news have to get in the gym and see some gains to put an all the reps and get stronger every day. But whatever path you take the greatness. Gatorade is there to help fuel. The journey because greatness starts with g coming to you live from the seaport here in new york city and brought to you by chase. Welcome back to jalen and jacoby. Jalen anthony rose. We have some news about something. We've been covering closely all summer. Long there is a report from. Cbs sports that the sixers could be preparing to have ben simmons in camp on the roster after trade rumors all summer. What do you think the chances are ben. Simmons starts the season with the sixers. So let's not clough what you saw. Ben simmons in the fourth quarter against the atlanta hawks with the fact that he's a uber talented player to just doesn't attempt shots outside of the paint so to couple. Those are two different things. So if you're feeling you trying to move him after that you're just not going to get the value play return. He's gonna have to come to camp and play value back up and when you do an extension with joel embiid. I'm pretty sure you talk to him. About the future of ben simmons and so you bring them back to camp you start the season woodham. You hope that he plays remotely like he was playing last year as he became a defensive player of the year candidate as he can't flirt with triple doubles. There's so many valuable thieves he can bring to the table. Then if that if in win that value re elevates. That's when you try to move him especially for what they're going to be asking for in return absolutely when you look at the timeline of this is you mentioned. Their loss to. The hawks was disappointing. He was particularly disappointing in the fourth quarter. He got all the blame. Your the blame pie. This through that thing right in his face after the series was over so then we expect there to be the deal. No deal is made before the draft. The maybe the deal and draft a no deal is made undrafted if right now at the end of august there is no deal likely he will be back and the way to see what happens before the trade deadline or mid season because maybe a team. That has somebody. That's interesting to the seventy sixers doesn't start very well and things that ben simmons can help and hopefully ben. Simmons does sort of change his reputation because the last time we saw him on a basketball court. He didn't perform that well so like you. I think he does start the season with the sixers. I think daryl morey spends every single day calling other. Gm's trying to change the fact that he is on the sixers because these two don't seem committed to each other long-term jalen ben. Simmons was watching chris. Paul and the sons as they made their way into the finals. It was a great nba finals and in that environment cb three said he got addicted addicted to going to the finals. Do you think he will make a return trip to feed the addiction. You know how much. I love chris. Paul and shots at the support. He's given to generally scholars over the years. They get a chance to go to camp in north carolina. I'll say this though. Dan marino when he went to the super bowl he felt the same way. When i went to the finals two thousand. I felt the same way and unfortunately chris i'm happy. He got his four years in his top dollar. But i don't believe the phoenix suns are going to be going back to the nba. Final and by no means is out of this. He was a special season in the conference. Continues to improve. I'm not saying that they're not going to be topped fourteen. I believe they'll still be a top four team. I still think they'll get out of the first round. I still think there are a contending caliber team. But have you seen the lakers roster. Okay they still have lebron. Ad right yes and the ladder guys going to be dominant this year. I think we forget how good he really is. And let me see the average a triple double more last year last year. Okay got so. That's why i say chris paul. I'm happy he's addicted to the finals. But i don't think the phoenix suns of getting back. Yeah the only way. The sun's come back is if some of their young players make absent leaps like eight and turns into a perennial all-star. They're young wings is really stepped up and get better because chris paul or cannot do it alone. I don't really see that happening. But i'm glad he's addicted and like you when you got addicted to the finals. Do not believe that he is going to return. Mr rose joe. Borough is going to return to the football field. He's going to play this sunday or saturday. This weekend for the bengals. Do you think it's a good idea to play. Joe borough after he just has sir twenty acl and mci absolutely by the way one of the greatest collegiate seasons ever lsu. He was out there balling and then he came in as a number one pick and not only was he putting up big numbers but his usage was extremely high. It did he got hurt so as a young player. You don't play them every preseason game whether it's okay to play in the final preseason game use it as a precursor as a warm up to get them ready for the regular season. I'm not mad at this at all. I think this is a smart decision. But i will say this. Unlike other quarterbacks i gotta love joe remember the cigar after win the national championship for the lsu. Tigers like i really like him so accurately passes short passes long passes but he gives me more anxiety as a football player than anybody else when he's back there and he's on the run. I just get worried about him. I worry about joe borough in ways. I don't worry about other quarterbacks. So i don't know if i can watch bengals games this year. Not bad for my. He's not good for my health. So we talked about joe burrow. He was the number one pick last year. And then pretty good rookie class. Herbert comes to mind borough. But this year's rookie class has a handful of quarterbacks that will hope to be the sort of franchise quarterbacks for the teams that drafted them of this mix of quarterbacks. The sort of the big five will call them. Which player do you think is in the best position moving forward with their team to be successful a decade. I understand the enthusiasm foot. Put his class. But i have to say each of these guys have been off season hall of famers right all these famous case for each of those guys. This all season right. Oh yeah so the actual answer to your question would be about winning. In this season trae lance had a better has a better chance to win. Because he's joining the team. That just was in the super bowl a couple of seasons ago. If feels like it's only of quarterback away and they run the football. Really will you know. My moser is going to be out there. Ball in this year is so that's the strength of their attack and he's going to be able to ease himself in now long-term justin field. But i'm thinking about also we. We talked about joe borough. That reminded me a trevor lawrence right. When you go number one you go into a really bad. He knew you say you feel for joe berle's hill. I believe you're gonna be saying that. About trevor lors this year i already doing the preseason i worried about and i believe the answer to. This question is justin fields. And i'll tell you why this hasn't been reported yet. But they're actually taking down the michael jordan statue in chicago. Justin field statue. He's quarterback had like thirty years just getting this city so much hope and they get behind him. Andy dolan is going to be the most hated person in chicago. I feel bad for them. But just fields in my belief from what i've seen which is just preseason will develop into the greatest quarterback that this franchise has had since what like cutler goodyear like like justin feels is already a hero in the windy city. That's why i think he's in the best position moving forward and also chicago wants to run the football at their core. They wanna play physical defense. Which means mac and that defense has to return. And i was doing eddie jackson dance. Because you know. He's one of my favorite de bags. They gotta get back to that too. Especially if they're going to be having a rookie quarterback out there at some point jalen the new york yankees have now won. Twelve straight games the longest winning streak since marras in mansell were out there. Jalen rose what do you think about the yankees hot street. This is where we expect. When you put judge stanton together shelter air with the late rb to close the deal and what about chatting came in to shut them down as an ace. I wanna ask you however your red sox fan you finally admit this year the better question is how are you doing watching the yankees win. Twelve straight with the first time since sixty one. It doesn't feel good. It also doesn't feel good to see my son walk around the house with the yankees head on over massachusetts. It doesn't feel good. That this also coincides with some trouble for the red sox swept. It doesn't feel good. That i went to the yankees red sox game and watch the yankees. Hit two home runs and win to. They hit two runs every single game. They have to run night that through a four hundred thirty eight foot in a four hundred nineteen foot home runs like they're not just bombs. The bronx bombers are back. Congratulations to all my yankee fan. Friends including my son quincy jalen. I don't want to do this. But i am going to do this. I don't want to buy the jake.

It's that time again. It's the time when. I try to convince myself not to buy jake paul jake. Paul ended up being disappointed. It's every single time he's fighting tyron woodley probably most dangerous opponent he's fought. How interested are you watching this fight. Woodley is dangerous. but he's fourteen fifteen years older than paul This is not an ma bow. They're going to be standing up clearly so j. Paul has a type and you know what that type is.

Hour 2: Can The Bucs Repeat?

"John j william matt's the podcast day will max coming to you. Live from the seaport district. Appear seventeen brought to you by chase. We're asking you act key. Jay and max on the dr pepper twitter feed of these three teams the chiefs the bucks and the bills which is most likely to win the super bowl this season chiefs bills or defending champion bucks fifty two percent of you have said the chiefs thirty percent the bucks and eighteen percent bills however tony gonzalez believes that the bucks are the best team in the league twenty dollars pro football hall of famer on greenie listen. I don't see anybody beating the team. this to be one of the best teams if not the best team in. Nfl history with the fire that they caught it end of the season last year in the super bowl and they got everybody coming back. I and like you said broad reasons. They got a year underneath their belt. Now with that offense and tom brady pulling the trigger. The only thing that will derail this thing is is obviously injury You know they got an extra game season now and it makes it a little bit harder. But i don't see anybody. Anybody beaten this team. All right he doesn't see anybody 'cause nobody. Nobody was close to beating them last year. Right all the packers. I mean i want to make sure that we clarify understand that. They're loaded key but it's not like they just had a. They just ran through everybody on their way to win the super bowl. A lot of things went right in order for them to do that. Yeah a lot of thing. It's gotta go right right in in sports to win championships. You've got to stay healthy. You've got gotta have chemistry. You got to hit the right teams and the right situations the right match of nothing. Taken away from the tampa. Bay buccaneers eleven and five team. That steamrolled through the playoffs but their chemistry started to take shape late in the year in into the playoffs but also they got the right breaks. They start off playing a washington football team. That didn't have an offense defense young chase young talk about bring it on tom brady so they got past that then. They got a new orleans team that had barbecue ribs coming back with Drew brees believe alvin. Kamara had some sickness going on michael. Thomas had ankle injuries so he was trying to play despite not even been able to run so that worked out for great. Then you go to green bay and whatever happened in green bay whether it was matt leflore didn't give the plays correctly to A aaron rodgers at the end of the game. Whatever happened brady foul king. Figured he was the duck through the ball touchdown that guy they took care green bay out the way then. They hit pay dirt. We kansas city that came in to the super bowl limping. in patch. Mahomes little injure banged up. Plus the offense align was decimated so everything fell in line although they had a defense that was lights out for the most part of the year. Everything has to fall in line. Don't make any excuses. They play they play but in the end the go seventeen in oh undefeated team from start to finish to win the super bowl. It's only happened once for reason. Your the miami dolphins. The patriots tried to do it but it didn't happen because they ran up against the new york giants and the miami was in a shorter season. Two i understand exactly what tony you're saying when you bring everybody back. The players including the coaching staff. Think about it all. Four main coaches are backed that means special teams offense defense coordinators and the head coach typically teams. Poach your guys when they win super bowls you lose players to free agency because they want the big money coaches leave to get hired as we talked about yesterday. That's not the case of the tampa bay bucks and they could potentially run the table but it probably won't happen look i. It's unlikely this is going to be the greatest team of all time. Because that's true of any team in any year right but you start to look could it be. They have a top notch offensive line. They have the best receiving core meaning. Top three receivers potentially ever potentially ever when you look at these three guys. Who's to say. Antonio brown's not still the best out of those three guys mike evans is in a league. Each one of those guys. You could argue for any one of those guys. And there's at least two number ones in that receiving core. But that's the best three in the league presently. They have the best linebacking ten linebacker tandem in the league. Presently as you said all last year they play defense. Tom brady was just getting his feet wet with the team. Early didn't know didn't have practice. Preseason those kinds of things they have and then they bring back all twenty two and key. You mentioned it. The coaching staff like no. It's probably not going to be the best team of all time. But you cannot say this about most teams in most seasons. And you can't say this about the box. It might be like they're not you can't just dismiss it out of hand. Let me great the receivers lead at me okay. Great receiver have to say that they probably have the best receiving core in the league. L. city j. Let me let me create the receivers police at some point not today but at some point i don't think they got the best trio wide receivers in the national football league. But really you're putting the dallas ahead of them right now. I mean we could put dallas in the mix. We could put cleveland in the mix. I mean let's just remind everybody throw any ask. Knicks went last seen on a football field for full season and healthy. Antonio brown was operating at all time great level and we haven't seen her like three years ago do we say are we sure he fell off. He looked pretty good and this over bowl. That was three call one day. A pass mac. Stop antonio brown might be the best receiver on this team. And that's saying a lot because they got some good receivers not to mention. I didn't even mention the ends right back. And they got three of those guys for your sanity as well. As jay's leave the receivers to meet beer with maga- dr tailing you don't seattle gossip. Pretty good ones. No doubt to who out though i think i got to see what. Aj green is but arizona gospel. Pretty good through the way. The best tandem to me is grounded. Julio jones actually actually to be honest with you as only got three damn good receivers. They just don't know how to use kristen kirk. That's just you know. But but if you're looking at statistical numbers and all that sort of stuff you can pick a a mini teams depending on the office style in which they play. All i'm saying is i get what you're saying. They got dominant receivers. I understand they got right and my point. Is you bring up kansas city. Kansas city's thin it receiver. They're great on top but do but going they not thin meco hartman demarcus Robertson bowman be good if in order for them it tyreek hill tyreek kelsey. Oh man i just before we get into all the stuff about the browns and in dallas and kansas city in tampa. Can i just have you guys. Put a little respect on the buffalo bills. Receiving core did earn the second highest grade in me. Bills got good good digs in. Kobe's leave the people. The reason i think you're sleeping on the bucks receiving core. I know you think they're very good. But they're being underrated by some us understand. We're talking about you. We just have somebody say you. Because antonio brown's longtime base you do understand that the books we see was have a case of the drops. He's just just so that you know i. I don't be fine. Sue but when you start saying the best receiving tandem awal don't know three got point to a team that had three not to there. Lots of menagian points doing so. What if this year this year. Regionally max it all time yeah. Yeah i'm saying maybe like help me with every relievers. One mex- ended discussion. Hakim is bruce. Damn tori hope man. Come home and again. It's number one for sure. Yeah all right. The point is we're getting we're getting sidetracked here. At the point you did point. I stand by it but everyone could still sleeping on antonio brown and a full season. I ain't going to be the dude who sleeping dantonio brown with tom brady. That's the whole thing availability as on the field for a whole ceiling well. Tom brady several years ago. But we'll leave that alone. We got well but then the reality is reality. Like whatever prediction you make. Then you've got to adjust to the facts when the facts change so does my opinion. What do you do when the facts change. You've got to change your opinion. They have they check every box this team right except the age at quarterback but but he doesn't need to everybody jay talk about his age. Okay in what is he doing. I got in for another three years i'm code. I don't need another quarterback for another three years. I'm happy as pie if we the season is kicking off. Obviously tomorrow night. Can we just go ahead and do it. Max who are picking them win the super bowl this year. Let's just go ahead and do a key. This is this is put it out there. The kansas city chiefs. You're picking who. Am i picking to win the super to win the super bowl bulky. I don't know i'm ready to do that yet. I know you like to watch games. I understand you like to wait until we get always there to determine so. That's why i'm asking you to go out there and take a leap for faith. I'm going to be in a minority guys. I'm going to take the buffalo bills. I'm gonna take the buffalo bills. There's nothing wrong with that. I don't feel like anybody tash show me that. He can sustain that level of performance from last year let alone get better just sustain what he did last year. And even that to me doesn't break you know. Of course you have to go to jail. And max is presented by progressive insurance. All guess. Join us on the goodyear hotline coming up. What should the giants do with saquon barkley against the broncos.

You can hit us up on the dr pepper colon line or twitter feed at key j. maxx eight eight eight seven nine three seven. Six eight hundred eighty eight say. Espn so my beloved new york football giants. Oh boy every year is the same thing guys every year. it's the same thing no offensive line. Been waiting ten years for an offensive line. The jerry reese era and men's hog mollies and everything and He drafted saquon barkley. Gettleman did with the second overall. Pick guys when he was twenty one twenty two rookie season. He had over two thousand yards from scrimmage and fifteen touchdowns behind a terrible offensive line with the remains of. Eli manning quarterback i mean. The guy is capable of doing some crazy things. This line is awful. Listen what jeff. Saturday or espn nfl analyst. Had to say about whether or not the giants should even play saquon versus the broncos. Sit a man until you until is the hundred percent and feels game. Ready not practice ready. I saw something on the ticker yesterday. All he had a contact practice. Give me a break man in the nfl. They no such thing as contact practices anymore right. That do took two or three shots. That is the most violent position played in the nfl. He's going to get hit more often and guys were going after their legs. They're going low. It's very difficult to protect yourself at position. Give him time understand that the longevity of his career is directly affected if you try to put him back early three time super bowl champion Joins us now. On the goodyear hotline. Brought to you by good. You're making the plays that move. You forward goodyear more driven mark longtime. You heard what jeff saturday had to say. What do you think I think you're gonna play your players and you know he's right about the fact that you don't get you. Don't get to do all the things you used to be able to do to make sure a guy is ready. But you're never ready coming off and seal. You're never ready until you have that kind of sudden piffle until you go in there and actually do it so you can wait around. You can wait around till the to tell you get booted out of the league and the point being is that when when you're you know physically able to perform and you're ready to perform still mentally. There's still a hurdle you have to get over and you'll never you'll never jump over that hurdle until you get into a game so at some point you gotta play and you could be on a pitch count. You can do all those things but the bottom line is. He's going to have to play. And i think he plays this week. Mark when i look at the old line specifically look at a guy andrew thomas second year left tackle top four. Pick out a georgia took it. And i just watched him get obliterate last year and it makes me think you know god would that duo coming off those edges for denver. How much trouble is dangled jones. Going to be in this upcoming game. How much pressure is on him. And i think great coaches j. While i think it's a great question because You know they they've struggle now remember you. They came in last year. More colombo was their offense of lying coach. They were working on. They were trying to be more of a zone team. Joe judge doesn't like it. he's from new england. He wants to be more of a gap power counter team. And so they changed midstream. And i will tell you this j well and and you know i'm the pied piper of offense von so i'm just gonna leave this with you. It's the most skilled position in football. And the reason. I say that is think about it from my perspective every day. You line up as an offensive lineman and your overmatched by the guy that you're playing against athletically you're the same size height weight and all that kind of stuff but that guy's exponentially better athlete than you and you have to block him sixty five times in a row and if you mess up one time and he gets the sack you suck and he goes to the pro bowl named one other position in all of sport in all sport so jay will. You're guard if you all of a sudden get switched You know get switched on a center and you blow by the center and land up for two. Does everybody say hey. That's center sucks. We should take him out. He can't play defense. No they say it was a great switch and a great match up by your team and you blew buying. But that's that's the job that you do every single down in in and out so you change midstream. During the course of a season there's no identity. They're all the things you've been working on for for six weeks. You scrap they. Now we're going to do something different. It's hard to develop an identity. It's harder develop your technique doing that so and then secondly i'll say this when you struggle and they have struggled pert struggled over at right tackle. I don't know if you know if they're going to replace him or not Obviously thomas struggled to some degree. But when you know you have an issue then it becomes incumbent upon the coaches to mitigate that issue and that's that you mitigate that issue drew calling place you don't line up on you know third down and ten and say let's go five. Oh protection we've got the four downs in the mic and we're not slide one way or other and we're not getting help because we want five eligible powder expect to get your quarterback hit because you put him in that position so those are the things that you have to do as an organization. The best coach in this league don't just attack weaknesses number one. They mitigate potential disaster and and that's what they're going to have to do in new york three time super bowl champion. Marks joins us this morning on keyshawn. J. will max is the host of slayer in evans on one of four point. Three the fan endeavor maher talking about the fan denver and everything else. They decided the broncos go with teddy bridgewater at the quarterback spot can get them over the hump. That's going to be a complimentary football thing. Specialties has been awful. they've they've addressed that You know by picking up players right after right after the final roster was announced That's gonna be an issue defensively. You know on paper and again you know keyshawn. I always say this on paper out to spend less a lot less time on an operating table If the game was played on paper it it isn't but defensively secondary wise. They are loaded. Man they have some players passer can The second is is phenomenal. Young player and he'll be all over the football field from the outside the inside slot to even playing linebacker in dime so that kid is all over the place they've got a. They've got a lot of town they're back end and obviously to pass rushers coming off the edge and von miller and Bradley shove and they've got a couple of backup. Kids can really rush the passer as well so they should be very stout. It's more about making good decisions and it really. It really came down to pocket presence. And you'd be better at this than than i play with quarterbacks. You know when when it dude quarterback can't get off the front side you know he's gonna wait for the frontside and i can't get the backside and doesn't know exactly where everybody else doesn't really doesn't really censor feel the pass rush or he sees ghosts and that's really what it came down to me is not so much. Drew lock doesn't have a big arm and drew lock doesn't have potential upside. It's that in the pocket. Drew lock just did manage the game. Well he didn't get off to from the from the frontside. Backside quickly didn't know where everybody was and he took hits and was unaware sometimes from protection standpoint. And that's part of being a young quarterback where teddy bridgewater theoretically we'll just operate and keep them out of harm's way In those situations so that's the reason they went there and you know it's going to be complemented they're they're gonna have to play. You know good offense. They're going to have to stay on schedule so that That that defense can shine and really be great talking to march three times super bowl champion host of on one. Oh four three the fan in denver. Mark Getting back to the broncos. Or how how. I'm surprised by this because his defense is so widely imitated but people are talking about fangio's Hot seat potentially You were talking earlier about the offensive line and the giants offensive line. And i think that has something to do with coaching them. Up to like eric flowers doing fine now that he's away from the giants andrew. Thomas struggling these high draft picks and everything. But they're going up against that fangio defense and yet fangio is on a hot seat. Apparently without a great quarterback how should his seat be. You know. I think it should be hot. I mean i think the bottom line is oftentimes and we joke around here in denver. But it's not really a joke. It's you know jokes are jokes are always funny. Because there's some partial truth to them right and they are big fans you is is really the coach of the defense You know he's. He's kept the play calling duties on the deep inside of the ball now after practice. Ask you about you know offense of things. I was watching the defense. I'll have to go back and watch the film right There's there's some things that just don't seem They just don't seem like like head coach material. And i always say this about head coaches and you know i travel around the league as you guys know for fox calling games and talking to head coaches all the time. There are guys regardless of their knowledge of exit. Does there guys that are just good managers. They do a great job of coaching coaches and letting the players kinda play and understanding strengths and weaknesses in putting guys in positions to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses. And they have this kind of overall ceo type of view of their football team. And they let their coaches coach. And i think i think sometimes you know even as often to play caller defensive play call you get so entrenched in that way of thinking that you lose sight of some of the management parts of the game on sundays and that really is where vic is struggled in the management section of the games timeouts. You know he say's time outs like He can sell them on ebay. And and you know you gotta at some point you gotta be you gotta use them you know and you've got to strategize and so that's been a real issue and then obviously you know when you're five and eleven and and what were they seven nine and five and eleven Other vic fangio in two years and you haven't produced even on the defensive side you're like twenty seven twenty eight th in the league last year and i understand your voice you injuries but the bottom line. None of it has been very good so far. So yeah you never wanna game your own. Seven in september and you're turner over differential minus eight. You've turned it over ten times under his Tutelage and you've only taken the ball away twice You're going to be on the hot seat there. It is ladies and gentlemen the great mark schlemmer with mark. Thanks a million for coming on the by the way longtime long time. I know congrats on the radio man. You sound great on the radio. Good for you brother. Yes good for me the great. Thank you brother harmar. So right little key is going to have to answer for his His take on. Mac jones and oh stop teasing. That's coming after Sports he never apologized. What's that spoilers. Lifted of the year two left the date back. It is gonna homerun. Who'll host returns the st lois at hits a home. Run and catch the dodgers on the hornets one output. They are cheering like he's one of their own that's Am five seventy l. a. Sports see our pool halls. It's a home run in his return to saint louis a second appearance of busch stadium after playing for the cardinals of course from a one to two thousand eleven to forty second standing ovation. His name was announced prior to a first inning app. That catcher and longtime yada your molina stepping in front of the plate to prolong the cheer did a short embrace before holes real pitch from j. half over the wall and left six hundred seventy nine of his career. Dodgers one seven two. You can tune into an nfl battle tonight. It's cardinals host. The dodgers coverage begins at seven pm eastern on espn radio and the espn app. Meantime it much worse news my beloved yankees. They're ace garrett cole. Leaves the game with hamstring tightness. Coal left with two outs in the fourth inning of the blue jays. Five one win over the yankees. He's been red hot usually as manager. Aaron boone said afterwards there's no more is scheduled for cold hamstring that the yankees feel like the caught on to this issue early in the process and the ravens are signing running back levian bell to the practice squad the moves come. The move comes after baltimore lost. Jk dobbins just hill to season ending injuries. The twenty nine year old bell will likely soon get an elevated to the fifty three man roster sources told adam schefter. Sportscenter is brought to you by indeed odds are. You're hiring to free up time. Not lose more with indeed you get. The platform delivers four times. More hires than all their sites combined according to talent nece post a job and say you're hired visit indeed dot com slash credit. Let's go to candy and the truck wicked excited. Nfl starting quarterback ron in medford kills been very underrated. Coming up josh mcdaniels. al brady was rugby. Keyshawn johnson there will be a day of reckoning. And it is today. Dan orlovsky gets here for your for your mac jones. Cam newton take. Apparently you're in big trouble with orlovsky. Well done dan. Well done the gotcha moments. Don't work for me. So i'm not got seeing key challenges like that you know are key when he gets in his feelings a little bit. It's not like a bad thing but ki ki ain't gonna be wrong especially when it comes against understand. Look i thought they should've started cam. Newton the same thing as san francisco. I'd start the veteran. Who's been to a super bowl and cam you know. When last seen healthy on a field and assistant he knew was six two and completing seventy percent of his passes. I'm not convinced he's done right. But then you gotta adjust to the facts key. According to everyone who is watching them. Mac outperformed him he performing. I know cova had nothing to do with it. Just outperformed him. I get it. But but if cam's not vaccinated then covy be recurring issue. Even in terms of availability is going to have to go through protocol absolutely absolutely so you make the smart decision as an organization to part ways with somebody that can interrupt your season much like it was a year ago. There's nothing wrong with that but to keep selling this narrative as if he just beat him out so like. Y'all got to stop that you want to tell the truth on this show something that we'd maximum we don't just start by just throwing things against the wall. It opened his stick. We tell the truth. Dan orlovsky. Espn football analyst former nfl quarterback twelve year veteran. Follow him at dan. Orlovsky seven dan. You heard keyshawn. Johnson refusing to adjust to the fact interpreting beat out as destroyed. I don't think he destroyed them. But mac apparently played better in the and he refuses refuses stubbornly to budge even iota off his point originally has keyshawn been proven wrong dan. Of course he's been proven wrong. The sun rose this morning. So there's not much that different today than in days keith. You're wrong it's okay. It's okay that you were wrong that you were adamant a month ago. Dan stop telling me that mack jones is going to be starting quarterback patriots. It's cam newton. Job can be quarterback. Stop talking then. Stop telling me that. Magnum is gonna be the quarterback. I'm like can't key mag jones is just better. He's playing better and he is just a better. Quarterback cam was playing good macwoods. Just better so i wanna give you thirty seconds key. You know maybe you say. Dan my best. So let me ask you this baby even though he might have been playing bid actually this question. Do you think at all whatsoever in this evaluation process that covert didn't play vaccination now vaccination didn't play a part of this at all whatsoever. Do i believe that vaccination the status of because i don't know if kim's vaccinated or not i don't think came has come out and said that he went to produce class dan the only an unvaccinated player would have to go through what he went through. Those we're playing assumption game right. Here's this just asking you. Yes or no answer. no. I don't because i act. Jones was just a better quarterback. I think if you watch the preseason games smack was better and then if you talk to people that were there every day. I asked reporters that were there every day. What's it look like. Every single one of them for different people. Every one of them said mack. Jones has been the better quarterback in camp. J just been better and it's not only that it's not only that mack was better in august. What was who is going to be better and significantly better come. November jones is going to be way better than cam. Newton come november jay. And so that's why this was. It became a relatively easy decision j. It's interesting dan orlovsky joining us now. Keyshawn j. maxx on espn radio. It's interesting how dan would like keyshawn to be magnanimous. When the facts prove keyshawn wrong. I'm still waiting for dan to admit i was right about carson wentz. That's a different story. That's a different story. Dad's never get up about carson wentz. But he wants key to roll over for for on the cam newton jones. First of all. I went on tv last year. And said max. You're right that's the first thing so let's not make stuff up number two. You ain't smarter than chris. Bauer frank reich. So while while you might have been right that once played poorly last year they also better first round pick that he's going to be really good again. So i'm gonna lean on those guys to take your expertise max kellerman. Of course they a second no if he plays guy. That's hilarious to those guys know a little bit more. Yeah those guys just know a little bit more about. I assume that you'd need more. You know more. But i'm right about this no more no more my little finger and then about six minutes. Now i've given keyshawn the opportunity and he's still hasn't said it so good luck for the next two and a half hours with you. Say hey way dan look. Here's the deal. He's starting quarterback where he beat him out. Didn't my whatever the case is. He's starting quarterback what i want to ask you as the starting quarterback for the new england patriots. How much success is he going to have week. One against floor is in that miami dolphins defense. I think he'll play well because while the defense for the dolphins is crazy exotic. And you've got all those pressures. I don't think they're going to ask them to do thanh. This is going to be an offense. That violently runs the football. They are going to run. Forty plus thirty five plus forty plus carries on sunday. And so while you're doing that as an offense you're going to minimize some of the stuff that miami can do. They're going to get into personnel groupings. That are not going to be all these exotic pressures. That miami wants to and also josh mcdaniels. Not only is a brilliant offensive mine. He's really good at trying to attack man coverage and that's something that the dolphins predominantly do and so he is going to find matches that he likes routes pick routes mesh routes that. He really likes to do and so. I don't believe that this isn't just a case for this weekend. I have said this since march. Whoever plays quarterbacks. I wanna say since april wherever plays quarterbacks for the patriots is not going to be asked to do a lot because the offensive line is scheme and the skill position player upgrade. And so i think mackel played really well in most games this year starting this weekend then i have to ask it. I've heard a while ago. He thought that she can go into feed it. I've heard people say. They think the bucks can go undefeated. Better chance to go rhino bucks chiefs would say the buccaneers. Because everybody's coming back. They've got both top three top five units on either side of the ball. They'll have a top five offense and a top five defense. Not only do they have all twenty two back from the team that obviously went and won the super bowl last year. If you pay attention to the local people down there who talk about their first pick. Joe trion out of washington. They're saying rave reviews about him. So another pass. rusher has been added to the unit. And i really look at tampa. And i'll go if they get past week three and week four because week. Three and four they go on the road l. a. and then they go on the road to new england if they get past that we're talking third weaken november till this becomes another challenge. Third week in november. I believe they play on the road at washington and then they get the bills week. Fifteen at home. So there's more games at kind of stand out but if they get past week three week four man it becomes a realistic thing. And i believe it's something that tom wants to go chase. You know he. He obviously mentioned himself. I would give to sue bowl rings for the chance to go undefeated. Tom wants to go chase. That and i just think that this team is built to go do it if you break down. Who got the best lines of scrimmage. They're going to have the best line of scrimmage almost every single week so i just think that the bugs have the best chance the chiefs have some question marks still on the back end of their defense easy to give up two super bowl. Rings means still have five left. No one's ever gone. Nineteen in the first time we ever played twenty games. I who can go let someone know whatever went. Nineteen know dan. You aren't with me later in the nfl. Yeah well that sounds like an exciting show to watch. That's what i said same. Maybe maybe about four o'clock today we can. we can get it out of yuki. Maybe by four o'clock we will pull pull a little bit of a yo. Yo you and i was wrong. I know more shot. Thank you dan. Great dan orlovsky ladies and gentlemen on keyshawn. J. will in max on espn radio. He joined us via the goodyear hotline. Of course coming up next why none of us are convinced that we could see this rookie in week.

This is real naturally freddie comment. And you know i'm ready. This is greedy. Northwestern is ready if it simmons here. I'm ready soro bom in texas. Sorta the sec. Football is bad and it kicks off every morning which you sanjay will in max and continues all day on. Espn radio going to have his time and is going to have a great career right now. It's my time coaches are going to be hard pressed to make that change to later. They already mind if he can. About andy dalton if dallas andy dalton in his late years of cincinnati. They haven't a forgot that keyshawn sanjay will imacs on. Espn radio the espn app. Espn two presented by progressive insurance guests. Join us on goodyear hotline and you can hit us up on the dr pepper call in line or twitter feed at key jay and max eight eight eight seven nine three seven seven six eight eight eight say espn. So sean mcveigh says. I think it would be naive for us not to prepare for them to be able to utilize fields in some form or fashion key. How likely is it. We see the bears rookie at all during week. One i don't think you will But sean mcveigh's right you gotta prepare. You gotta prepare for everybody hill. They gotta prepare for nick. Foles they if you are. Coaching attention to detail is extremely important. You wanna make sure that everything. All the boxes are checked. You don't leave any stone and turn it in this situation. I don't think justin feels plays Because let's assume andy dalton it's getting run out the building. The rams are it's twenty eight ten and they don't look like they're doing anything offense. You're not going to all of a sudden throw him in there. You might as well if nick foles as active. You might as well put nick foles in if you choose to do. So if the game is titan colts you. Don't you're not gonna pull out andy dalton put him in so i don't see him playing week one and it's not because the rams are supposed to have this great defense even know when i look at their defense defense. I'm not afraid of them. When the defense coordinators raheem morris and he's new calling the rams defense and you don't have the players that you had in the past outside of aaron donald maybe Sebastian joseph day and then jalen ramsey. I mean i know. Leonard floyd is there but it's not the same defense as we saw way phillips or even a year ago jay. I want you to listen to what matt nagy said at the bears press conference on september six and react to listen to matt nagy we understand and we all understand that the passion and the excitement that that we wanna see from justin and i think probably the biggest thing mark is for myself. Our coaching staff Ryan everybody included that when we get together and we talk about what our plan looks like and we play out scenarios This isn't you know. Sometimes you can get caught up in emotional decisions and so i think that's where Myself i have to be really strong there and understand the why. Okay i respect. I respect the latter part of that comment max. Sometimes you get to play out scenarios because you can't always go go. According to plan life doesn't go according to the plan. So if you're playing out can we start talking about week. Two versus the bengals for justin fields. Because i feel like. I'm gonna see the andy dolan got his head cracked in when he was behind that line for the dallas cowboys. I'm going to watch the same thing happened against the los angeles. Rams chicago's online is just as bad as what was last year right. So if you're talking about. Hey this first game. If andy dolan they start getting blitz who knows maybe they might be in a game but these are getting blitz and he starts getting really hard. I still know. I wanna see. Justin feels that game. Maybe i really see nick. Foles net game. And i'd rather have a game. It's easier for justin fields to grow into the same kind of pressure like the rams cabrera suggested before the draft key that they trade up to get justin fields if he was available. Because i'm forty eight years old. I've never the bears have never had a great quarterback in my lifetime. Almost half century never jay cutler is probably a top three quarterback in that franchise history in my lifetime. They have to get this right like they got to. The offensive line is terrible right. trubisky could outrun. the linebackers. Couldn't throw it down. The field falls down the field with a clean pocket. There's never a clean pocket. Fields can take the best of both but to me. I don't wanna start the season with him behind that line if don't have to key. What are your thoughts about when we see just in fields you know. It's not even about the line. Because i understand a little bit about how an office and i can look to certain people in preseason based on. Who's underneath the center. If you're looking at the line in quarterbacks holding the ball or they're looking at something from an offense align protection scheme standpoint where they're not they're protections don't add up or coincide with what they wanna do from an offense Passing game or running game system. They're looking at things and then going into the regular season they completely changed. So i kind of understand that. That's why i'm not like all going crazy about the offense align right this minute in terms of your original question. I don't know win you win. You play him. I think you as a veteran in the locker room. He if he gives us the best chance to win before gets away from us. Then you claim is that we three is a week four or three and two or three and three in the offense is in moving the way we thought it was much like if you go back to. When kurt warner was benched for ally manning. The offense wasn't going anywhere so tom. coughlin made a decision. Yeah that's interesting. In other words justice fields as qb one. Now but you don't start him on less. If the season's getting away from you then you gotta go to even. It's maybe a little earlier than like. I think that's right by the way. Is wilson look quarterback the blessed john. Thanks for listening to kisangani. Well and max the podcast check the guys out live weekday mornings from six to ten eastern on espn radio.

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of philosophy. One football here on the big blue view. Radio network i am the host of the show nicholas bottom and we are dead the dead time here but we still have some content that we want to deliver to you and i wanna talk a little bit about you. Know the recent news in the nfl. But i want to start with one. That didn't really catch a lot of headlines and revolves around twenty nine hundred most valuable player. Lamar jackson who recently came out and said he is putting a big emphasis him along with the ravens are putting a big emphasis on improving his deep ball in twenty twenty one and i think this is important for a couple of different reasons but i also want to juxtapose what lamar jackson has done. Recently with his deep ball with daniel jones went daniel jones has done between the two offenses that he operated with pat shurmur and jason garrett so first off with lamar jackson's think about greg romans offense with the baltimore ravens. They wanna run the football. They want to punch you in the mouth. They're gonna incorporate lamar jackson in the running game. And you know what if some of those e passes don't end up materializing down the field. Amar jackson's one of the best flutes in the nfl. And he could take off with his legs but last year. In two thousand twenty he attempted fifty eight deep passes now deep pass this constituted as twenty plus yards. He completed twenty one of them for a completion percentage of thirty six percent per six hundred sixty one yards six touchdowns and four interceptions and a lot of people have kind of made made a lot about lamar jackson's lack of ability to consistently be accurate with these deep balls. And if you watch the game. He does struggle with that from time to time. He overthrows he doesn't always put the best touch on the ball. He had six turnover worthy. Plays outside of the four interceptions that he's through with those deep balls in twenty twenty and he also struggles from the far hash on those quick little comeback routes and those out routes. We saw the tennessee titans in two thousand nineteen. Mvp season really clamped down their defense shut. Lamar jackson down and force him to throw out there and allowed those quarterbacks for the titans to make plays on the football did not do well for lamar jackson but we look at his twenty nineteen stats that. Mvp season. that i'm referring to. He attempted more d passes. They're only by a slight amount but it was sixty eight attempts and he completed twenty seven thirty nine completion percentage but for eight hundred twenty nine yards the yards per attempt or more and he also had twelve touchdowns and you remember back to week. One abet seasoning the miami dolphins. It was marquee. Brown's first game in the national football league and he just tore it up just hitting on deep posts against middle of the field. Split open. I should say split safeties types of looks. The dolphins were putting out there and this is one of the dolphins. Were just a laughing stock and remember. They were supposed to be defeated that entire season. That didn't end up happening but throwing deep that that year. Lamar jackson had twelve touchdowns and only two interceptions only at three turnover worthy plays. They were clicking on all cylinders. they're not to mention. He just was phenomenal with his legs as well and like i said they loved attacking the middle of the field open defenses. The split safety looks kaz. Thirty one of those sixty eight attempts were to the deep center portions of the field. Twenty plus yards down the field ten of those touchdowns where that so. You're looking at deep post. You're looking at mills concept. We're looking at anything that can get those safeties to bite up a little bit. Open up the middle of the field. And that's what the ravens were able to do. But still you see. Watch these games. And you see lamar jackson. You see how he struggles to kind of be accurate with that ball. He's putting a high precedent on that and this little article just it piqued my interest because made me wanna look at daniel jones. Because i feel like people who don't watch the film. They criticized daniel jones and his ability to throw the deep on. If you can go back to two thousand nineteen maybe you had some validity to it. Even know i thought he did really really well in those one on one situations with their asleep so i went through the stats of daniel jones. This is twenty nine thousand nine and pat shurmur offense. He dropped back. Fifty four times had only sixteen completions not to twenty nine percent rounded up thirty percent. Completion percentage for four hundred and ninety eight yards nine touchdowns four interceptions. That's solid this rookie. Season fifteen of those sixteen completions were considered big time throws according to pro football focus which is a staff that they use pass with excellent ball. Location timing generally thrown further down the field and or into tighter windows. So i mean that's really really impressive when you think about it from twenty nineteen standpoint that fifteen of those sixteen were on target. Were big time throws now. It didn't happen as often as an ended up having in the next year and the completion percentage wasn't as great but when he did hit he hit. And that's great now. If you look at the turnover worthy plays they were a little bit more now. They're twelve percent of those throws were turnover worthy plays. He had seven that turnover worthy and nine in the medium parts of the field from the ten to the nineteen yard so he was really threading the needle. He was taking some risks and he was making some. Ill advised rosen if you go back. And you watch his first game against washington which was a win and you can go back to some of those earlier games. You can see him just make ill-advised throws ended up being interceptions. He did a lot in a medium portions of the field. I felt like daniel jones just watching those games. I felt like he struggled to time his passes up initially between the linebackers and safeties especially near the hashes and breaking in a little bit. Which is something. I feel like. He did much better with in twenty twenty so that makes me want to go and look at the stats of his twenty twenty season for various reasons. Now he didn't take as many deep shots in twenty twenty now. We have forty three attempts which was nine point. Six of his overall passing temps sub ten percent. Unless you want wanna roundup up which we did before so. That's just do that. And then he completed twenty of them. That's forty six and a half percent completion right there. That's pretty darn good. If you look at everybody else in the you look at the highest. Deep completion percentage of players quarterbacks. I should say that had twenty percent of snap since daniel jones in fall under the fifty percents category have to rationalize it. Twenty percent nick mullins actually ended up having to highest with fifty seven point nine. He played in ten games than dak. Prescott fifty three ryan fitzpatrick ethically to baker. Mayfield that fifty. And then to shawn watson forty nine cam newton forty eight which is a little bit more surprising imagining cam. Newton didn't have as many attempts. But i'm just kind of spitballing with that. And then daniel jones sitting there at forty six and a half percent so daniel jones ended up throwing the ball pretty darn well and pretty accurately relative to everybody else in the national football league last season in twenty twenty and again at forty-three attempts completed twenty percent of six hundred and fifty two yard six touchdown that six of his eleven touchdowns or deep last season so maybe garrett which pass the ball a little bit more deep with zero interceptions and eighteen of those twenty completions. Those were big time. According to football focus that is a large percentage right there. Those are big time throws and turnover worthy plays. Guess what they were to he had to. That's four percent or turnover worthy plays. Didn't have any interceptions deep. That is a significant upgrade from twenty nine thousand nine just from an efficiency standpoint when it comes to the turnover of he plays memory at seven deep had nine to the middle of the field. He had to deep and three in two thousand twenty so he was better with the football. Jason garrett actually touched on when he recently talked at mini camp. He said he wanted to eliminate those turnover or the plays and you know what daniel jones was able to do that and he was able to not turn the football over as much. But still you combine two thousand nineteen twenty twenty daniel jones turn over the football more than anybody in the national football league and a lot of the success. Though that daniel jones had on these deep passes were to the centre part of the field. Four of the six touchdowns deep were to the centre part of the field. It's a vulnerable spot for a lot of defense. Try to run cover to sometimes cover four as well and it's good to see that garrett was actually attacking that downfield jones was seeing it. We saw it against the pittsburgh steelers in week. One that was not a cover four. That was more of a three deep zone. But the deep cross from ebony ingram had a fitzpatrick bite up in the replacement coverage from the other outside corner supposed to take over that deep center. Portion of the field did not happen. Variously and ended up scoring that touchdown daniel jones also had a touchdown to the left and a touchdown to the right side of the field. But he didn't have a touchdown the entire season from ten to the nineteen the medium to the intermediate part of the field but he had four interceptions. There that's something that still needs to be cleaned up from the film. That i've seen i have seen a lot of touch passes there just in two thousand twenty just the linebacker before the safety and a lot of them were on dig routes to darius slayton at something that felix drilling shepherd lot of success with. I feel like targeting. Evan ingram in this area has been an issue. There were also six interceptions in the short portion of the field from daniel jones. A lot of them were targeted to editing room. Which is unfortunate but again. I think you can use an ingram in different ways. You can use them as a distraction. Newsroom as clear out you can use them on those drags and those horizontal crosses because that's where he thrives you get the football in his hand have him just go north and then he can use his lateral agility to make people miss. That's okay. that's how you employ someone like evan. Engram you don't allow don't force him. I should say to just run. Stop routes and curls back to the quarterback where he has to quickly concentrate get his hands up and then make a catch and insecure and turn back up. That's just not who has an ingram is but it's interesting going over how effective daniel jones has been on a limited sample size throwing the football deep and how it was a lot better from twenty nineteen to twenty twenty from an efficiency standpoint and even in two thousand nine hundred nine though he was hitting on those big time throw so when he hits he hits now. We just need to see daniel jones. Do better in that middle portion of the field because it's just has not been there really as four touchdowns and eleven turnovers lebanon interceptions. I'd say hogging matt area of the field. And i think i saw growth in twenty twenty for sure but there's still some ways to go so i don't know i read that article. I felt like lamar jackson's putting a big president. And i think daniel jones has shown strides. And i think one reason why he's shown strides in this area is his. I'm manipulation. He does a really good job. Getting his is whenever. There is a single high safety forcing that safety towards where his is going. And then targeting the backside of that quickly. he'd flashes his eyes hits the back foot quickly. Turns locates the receiver and throws a solid football from that area. And we just need to see that grow a little bit more. Need to see him be better with his is in the standpoint of okay. The safeties coming downhill here. I gotta come off my first reading. Get to my second read. That's something i feel like. He can clean up and that doesn't necessarily have to do with the deep passing portions of the game. That's more quick game type stuff a little bit more. That intermediate portions of the field. Those things i think daniel jones can still develop the processing part of that portion getting his eyes off of a read when it's not there and then committing to another going through his progressions that's daniel jones can grow from but i just thought it was interesting to kind of go through these stats and see the growth of daniel jones just from year one to year two different system now. It's hoped that garrett can really maximize those yards after catch from these receivers. I just do not feel like he's done a good job doing that. In twenty twenty he just didn't there were there. Were way too many space concepts. That's why there were so many targets to the importance of the field but a lot of a lot of targets end up going to the shore portions of the field anyways and daniel jones and a seventy percent completion percentage on those obviously you're gonna have a higher completion percentage when you target short rather than deep but still forty six and a half percent on those deep. That's that's not bad. That is top ten in the nfl. And it's it's something to strive for something to build on so let's hope that that can happen. Already begin to a couple more stories round the national football league just one of the touch on that. Talk a little bit of new york giants football. But before i do that. Let's take a quick break to hear. A word from our sponsor support for this episode comes from forward. Most people go to the doctor for the one offs like rashes and colds. And your annual flu shot but doctors can do more. That's why you need forward. Their doctors go beyond every day care in an effort to catch killers like cancer and heart disease early. They use advanced technology to help reduce risks and achieve long-term results so invest a doctor. That's in you and your long term health at go. Forward dot com. That's go forward dot com thanks to t mobile for supporting this episode and for keeping baseball fans around the country connected to the game. Because when you're on america's largest and fastest five g network you get more than great coverage you get to stay close to your favorite team whether you're at home or on the road in other words t mobile is your ticket to the game. Make the switch to t mobile leader in five g today. That's according to open signal. Awards based on average speeds and usa five experience report april. Two thousand and twenty one five device coverage and access details at t mobile dot com. So we got some holdout situations around the national. Football league looks like stefan. Gilmore didn't attend mandatory mini camp. And obviously we have aaron rodgers. And then we byron jones talking about eighty howard's hold out which was on. Nfl dot com now. Byron jones is reporting saving. Howard is holding out right now. He has a five-year. Seventy five point. Two five million dollar deal that he signed in twenty nine thousand nine that extended him through twenty twenty four but howard is coming off of a phenomenal ten interception season. He's twenty seven years old and it looks like he's looking for a new deal despite signing that huge deal back in twenty nineteen and byron. Jones said it's none of his business. He didn't want to weigh in on it. But it's not a great thing to have. One of your star. Quarterbacks potentially hold out of training camp. We'll see how this ends up going. There's going to be a little bit more. Hold out talk a little bit later on in this episode as well but this is one reason why you invest heavily into your secondary now more so because depth in injuries but this can also happen as well remember. Last year they selected no ig monogamy out of auburn with one of their three first round selections. Along with austin jackson who played offensive. Line at a solid rate. Better than. I expected coming out of usc for them and then obviously to a tongue below who. I want to dive into real quick just because earlier this week. He had a minicamp practice where he threw five interceptions and a lot of people were talking about it but he came out and he said he wants to put a real emphasis on being aggressive and pushing. The ball. Downfield and honestly i don't find tomb. Obviously you don't want to throw interceptions. But i don't find too much wrong with a young quarterback liked to throwing those interceptions in minicamp practice if he's learning from this and he's kind of feeling himself out learning the offense seeing what he can and cannot do. Throw as many options as you need to win minicam practice and learn from it and grow from and training camp rolls around cleanup all those mistakes. Take this time between mini camp and training camp to really nail down that playbook because he came out last year and said he did not understand. The playbook says he probably should have so. If you're going to make those mistakes trying to get that timing down and you know what practices against a really good defense in miami even without leaving howard. It's still a really good defense. Then you can throw those interceptions at that point in michigan. Just don't have that translate to the season. I like quarterbacks who are willing to be aggressive and are willing to make mistakes and are willing to learn from it now he just needs to learn from and i'm not really a huge to a fan to be honest and it wasn't a great look last year regulate people writing him off a little bit early. Got gotta let this kid tried to develop see what happens remember. He was coming off of that hip injury that he suffered in his last year at alabama. So he's only twenty three years old right now. We'll see what ended up happening with them. But i just thought it was interesting because it was all over. Nfl network how he threw five interceptions. Not a great way to start your twenty twenty one campaign. But he's heading into his second year so let's just see how it all plays out all right now. I wanna talk about another young quarterback and that is justin fields. Who is the number two quarterback. According to matt nagy who just re iterating that any dalton will be the bears starting quarterback now. I don't believe bears. Have the los angeles chargers doctor from last year. Who ended up accidentally knocking. Tyrod taylor out of a game which led to justin herbert stepping in and starting in an absolute leading the nfl. On fire but i get the feeling that this is a similar situation in the fact that just feels is going gonna find the field hat. You gotta find the football field though really really early in his career. I don't believe the bears injures gonna roll out with andy. Dolan matinees desperate ryan pace. Their general manager. Who got to select. Two quarterbacks manager did not remember matt nagy came in in two thousand eighteen trubisky was drafted in two thousand seventeen but right piece had been selected. Two of these guys in the bears come out of the gate and they start struggling. Which could realistically happen. Then you're telling me that. Andy dalton is going to sit there and be playing a lot of these games. I just a highly highly doubt that and look. The bears open up their season against the rams on sunday night football as jalen ramsey. That is aaron donald. That is a stud defense and at the go to los angeles to do it at. That's embarrassing in front of the entire. Nfl season. you're telling me that. We're going to see. Andy dalton play again the next week now. Justin field obviously so much has to play out but justice field is somewhat capable of being ready. I expect if that game goes which could go in a really negative fashion. You could see justin fields as early as week two against the bengals add more softer defense more softer matchup. And that's maybe where that could happen but an open field is going to be on the bench too long. Matinee wants to stick to the to the narrative that it's going to be andy dalton as the starter and you know what by week one. It could possibly be an adult. But i don't know long that's going to last. Maybe he just doesn't wanna throw justin field out in a primetime game and against a really really tough opponent. That makes a lotta sense to. But i expect justin fields a seat if they'd iron a little bit faster then what. The story kind of alludes to at least and then last but not least said it was gonna touch on it. A little bit. Aaron rodgers talk about holdouts as one of the biggest one ray here. This came out on june seventeenth at the packers. Dilemma is expected to last until the start of training camp. Does that mean he's gonna get traded. Does that mean he's going to end up coming back. He's wearing the. I'm offended. shirt. The entire situation is just a mystery at this point. Ian rapoport really waited on he said on. Nfl total access to me and based on the people i've spoken with. This is really something that will be wrapped up either way if they do find a solution that green bay has wanted. If aaron rodgers does get the security that he wants potentially in the form of new contract probably not going to happen until the start of training camp so it's up in the air if he's going to be there at training camp but there could be negotiations going on. That could bring this to a close or possibly a trade mama floor. Says he would love to have aaron rodgers. Everyone wants aaron rodgers back. But then you have green bay. Brass talking about. Aaron rodgers is a difficult personality. Which isn't necessarily a new revelation about him. Something that ted thompson you know rest in peace something that. He said a little while ago that he was a little bit of a difficult personality. Something along those lines. I don't have the exact quote in front of me but the floor says he wants to still have him back with love to have him back. That's been matt floors message all off season all summer and i'm sure it's going to be as message through the summer. I mean this guy is the reigning. Mvp he's an absolute stud. And you know. Kim holding out allows jordan love to get a little bit more work which is definitely excellent because he spent his entire first season in the nfl. The quarterback three not the quarterback too but july twenty seventh. That should be an interesting day. That is the start of the green bay packers camp and guess. We'll have a little bit more clarity on. What exactly is going on with aaron rodgers. By that point out he gets a new contract. He'll be there and then green bay will be a super bowl contender as they've been if he ends up going to denver or leaving going to just another team or holding out his his messy mess then. Nfc north could be a little bit more wide open for the chicago bears. We were talking about in just in fields before and the minnesota vikings with kirk cousins.

"Cianci will matt's podcast. Check the guys out live weekday mornings from six to ten eastern on. Espn radio game last i. Nfl season so far. Monday night football. I have one request on. Kkk data. get tired keyshawn. J. willem max. Look now that. I have to wake up early early in the morning. Now that i have to wake up early in the morning can we please make the games earlier because what i tell myself What i'm gonna do is going to watch the first half. I'm gonna go to sleep. I'll wake up and read about it in the morning. Watch some highlight game. That's what i did on this. It's back nights. Three hours sleep. I want you to follow my lead on this. I've been doing this been doing this for five. This is were six years now morning. Mornings radio back in la too but it's the same ours. Everybody always say there they go. You're smart the math. It's the same thing it's whether you on the east coast west coast your time. It's the same the math. Because i was going to explain it in so everybody always goes well man. I'm like no it's the same own. Lay down taken up. I know you've got another show blah blah blah taken up here. Get you blanket laid out. Find your room. Close the door or max come to the realization that you're not going to sleep which i know people i worked with marcellus wiley for six years. Ky reminded i have no idea and he needs four out like there's some news like this four hours. Sleep deal is open their good. That's not me. I get sick. Some good i've got. Oh yeah i can teach you how to get the six so to say yeah. Yeah you got a sneak in an hour. Here's an hour there. Caffeinated caffeine in. And i know you working. You're doing all of a sudden but you can get an hour here thirty there take do your show a two to three bam. I'm going home yet. Kids try whatever. Leave me alone and our now. I'm up to ready to game comes on you ready to rock and really what you're doing is buying a few hours at the end of the night and see the game from beginning to eat. Yeah me too so who could not see it. The problem is wide awake right. Well then you had other things to do also so we're up all night up. That's where my voice is. We're going to get into never talked so much in my life. Bit guys. I gotta tell you something and here. Let me do all this. You heard the great brent musburger on raider nation nine twenty. The raiders beat the ravens. Thirty three twenty seven in overtime Keyshawn j. is presented by progressive. Insurance guests join us in the goodyear hotline and that game had everything including the finish. There were so many times. No okay. they're going to win. They're gonna win. It was unbelievable. What was your takeaway key. Your big takeaway. I just thought it was a good. I thought the first half was a little i mean. The first couple of quarters was a little sloppy to a degree. But it's still good football. If that makes any sense you could tell it was the first game of the season you know slightly boss thrown a certain way behind guys guys not hitting the whole lot of penalties early. Come out for the raiders. Just both sides in general fans there. Christening the stadium with fans. Oh man i can only imagine what it would was like lie inside the actual stadium. But i thought i thought it was a well played football game in body and by the time came to the who's good it was. It was one of those monday night. Football games that you stay up to watch. You're not lying about you. Jae derek carr. I mean look. The pass he added in wasn't wasn't credible. But i felt like watching the raiders. They should have won the game last night. It's at home. You're playing against Baltimore team that is banged up. Now i give baltimore a lot of credit. Give them are jackson a lot of credit. It seems like he made a lot of improvement in offseason. But i still walked away saying okay. Even though they got sammy watkins. They still don't have a number one receiver. Bateman right. can't play rookie rookie. You can't really count on that and also met like he was elusive mex- crosby i feel like he made the pro bowl. I mean mount pressure. He was putting on lamar jackson time after time after time was just incredible to watch but still me. No marcus. peters secondary mean dangerous. So open so open a lot of problems for baltimore. Let me tell you my big takeaway okay. And by the way. Derek carr cuban on derek carr had snow. Say anything anybody idiot that he had a third and ten of beautiful. Pass down the field to the sideline to rugs. Right in the third fourth quarter. I mean he made a lot of great blaze. My big takeaways this when you look at the quarterback coach combination for most teams. That'll tell you what you need to know. Although tomlin can do it with or without rothlisberger win. Eight games. Right but rothlisberger. Mike tomlin are always going to compete. You know you got horrible and lamar jackson. They will be competitive. What i wanted to see from the raiders is okay gruden and car's been several years. Now you're your records improving every year. But you're christening the stadium with fans against that competitive type a team. What's going to happen here. Can you actually come away with the win. And they did yes. That was a growing up moment for this particular entertained. When you talk about moments that you that you have in the past. That went against the raiders. Exactly and now it. With for the raiders. So you feel good about how the next game that you play. You look forward to that you like okay. We know we can win in these crucial situations because again that would have gone against the raiders in a pass. Everybody was you mentioned. Dear car You know people don't feel like car is an elite quarterback in the national football league. I know what i see. It's an elite quarterback. What what the hell's wrong with him. There's nothing wrong with them. I mean when you look at the way he played last night. He threw the ball around fifty six times. But you know you got waller on a corner out down assign line. He puts up one hand. Try to get a poster if you catch it with two hands another completion. Why did you even remotely try to catch it with one hand just to for what so when you start to look at that. The interception in and overtime was not on car. Not that's not a car deal. It went through a do's hands like it was an open net right so it's like when you start to look at things you gotta know what you're looking at. Don't get caught up in the hype about who's on the commercials and who likes what don't get caught guys. That's what was so hot up in. That was so impressive. To me is usually with the raiders. Were a team. Like the raiders. In recent years once they pass goes through. Do's hands wants. The dude is down his knees. Oh it's not a touchdown and then you get and then five yards and et cetera et. Cetera they lose that kinda game. Right lender would leather sofa car to lead a will to be an elite quarterback. He i think the next step and it's team dependent as you know perception to lead the team to the win. Under those circumstances to me car takes the next thing last night. Spoke more volume about the raiders. And how their defense got better or i walked away concerned about baltimore. I don't think the raiders defense got better. I think razor slightly better than ranked twenty seventh. I think they did a little bit better in terms of maybe pass rush because the style and play in which lamar jackson plate. But i i'm not they defense. Don't i'm not the defense. That's a problem for the baltimore ravens because at right tackle was an issue for them right. I mean we got the backup to the backup to the backup. Mary like there is no pass protection. Lamar jackson the way he carried on that i fumble was making me a little nervous. You're not worried about lamar right right. I mean both gaza scrambling puerto damn lives. It's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Here's some straight talk from. John gruden felt like i died in and woke up and died again. And i was like a cat. I had multiple lives tonight. I don't like playing like that. It was Tough but again. We did a lot of really good. Thanks to win that football game tonight. That's straight talk to you by straight. Talk wireless no contract. No compromise key. I i know. That's not the best metaphor but i know what he means like when edwards me was that all you gotta be kidding when you don't score on that drive you're like come on you're dead and then came back to life. Yeah when you when you don't score so as soon as that happened. I said angel score right soon as they're gonna lose. Is it happened. I said they're not gonna score. They're not gonna get the and then the pig. I'm like damn in lamar fumbles they get it. I'm like okay. Got opportunity again. And they come with a casino blitz which is all out blitz. Car blew all up on zeta-jones. You out there. But nick at all by yourself if you can't make that throw those can't neither should be in the league. No doubt that that after everything that happened that was like yeah well of course. That's not one of those please but you don't know how hard that is though man to get them open no no to catch the ball under those circumstances those nice man that that's not even the lights. It's the circumstance like maxine. You you that open and it's it's that is on the line in anything could happen. You could trip on the grass needle. You could get caught in the lights in zeta-jones that have the best hands in america. So i was. I was like oh okay. We can so take me to that moment right. Everyone's watching games on the line. Monday night football wide open. If you don't catch this you're a bum right. So what's going through. Your mind is like part of that has to be. You're aware of all that you are aware of it. But but at the same time is just one of those deals where i've seen guys in that situation but have when you have been in that situation not as easy minutes like knocking down a ray allen. Three we ain't even. That's how that steph curry crossing the crossing the half court line then just so how are you a whip because the way you speak about it you speak about it like someone who's been in the moment at some point in their life i have. Oh i've been in there. I got a lot of highlight clips right and know what someone is thinking. The negative thoughts that can creep in. Is that from talk. Because you know 'cause you you know you don't wanna be the guy right. Max you don't want to be the guy in that situation and that car. And i'm the quarterback and i see the casino blitz coming it. I missed that throw. That's a lot of pressure to hit that. Because was both open on the quarterback and the receiver. You're not ready to throw.

Real quick on need to stop can no longer fight on for him. That line with the classic line it was a it was real. It was real my bond. The usc athletic director on trojans live why they decided to fire clay. Help now in the end It's just a a sense of concern that long term we have the ability to build. I think we've made some nice progress. In the time it clan. I've worked together. I enjoyed working with clay. He is an incredible Person and We did some new things and I'm proud of the fact that Together i think we won't boyd lose a whole lot of games when you think back going through covert i couldn't imagine going through covert without Clay is is a partner but again i think that You know we're committed to win a national championships and we believe that in order to do that that a change was was needed. Why was it chain needed. If according key to mike bond who who's correct they didn't lose a lot together. They weren't together very long but they were like seven and two on. Why was it. Change needed to win a national championship. You start off by saying clay did a tremendous job. When he was there in terms of winning a lot of football games i was. I was one of a handful of people that that signed off on. Clay the be higher at that time as our head coach when he was hired the there was nothing wrong with hiring clay held at the time. But you know it's like anything else. It runs its course. If you're not the games that you need to win We beat penn state in the rose. Bowl is certainly looked like we were headed in the right direction. you know we open up against alabama. We run out of the building. We play ohio state in the cotton bowl. We've run out of the building you know. It's one of those deals where you know. We could beat notre dame one time in his tenure. There i mean you start to look at what's happening in the landscape of college football in when you lose a game like we lost stafford. Who who's coming off a loss against kansas state in an embarrassing fashion and they turn around in hand us with kansas state. Handed them after stroke after we struggled the week prior to that against san jose state. You could clearly see that. The program wasn't headed in the right direction. Max i it feels to me because i was there for about half a dozen years in la and you know we obviously covered the trojans a lot through the lane kiffin years and everything. It seems to me that people have forgotten little by little. The expectations of the program have eroded. It's not okay to have a losing say well here in okita win twice as many games as you lose your trojans are supposed to talk to three losses a year. You like what happened. Well that's not even that's not even half of it though. You wanna dig deep into the weeds. Do you know what. Usc foundation of usc football like we created for all anticipations. We created the sec. We created the sec. In nineteen seventy sam bam cunningham went down there as a true freshman in in waxed alabama. They started they started integration in the sec. That's what our programs about. We're about being ohio state being alabama clinton's on on something now. But we're about that in quite hilton. We were not getting that. There's four quarterbacks that i can think of five there i could think of saved voice brother. No i'm good the five that i could think of matt corral ole miss. You know it's wrong westlake. Village california went christian k. C. j. shroud. You know where. He's at. Ohio state southern california back door. You could go j. Daniels transfer was not held onto because kc slow was had a good year after. Jt had an acl so he decided to move on but we couldn't retain him in the program. We couldn't convince him enough to stay in the program just that be patient. Dj clemson oh by the way if you know anything about usc football program in orange county. California which is the pretty much the the mecca for our alumni support price young with the modern day. High school you know else else. There matt liner. Guess where he's at now alabama so you allow recruits like that to get away that's been going by the waist post pete carroll a lot going on. You can't have that happen. What's the answer. Who is the answer you know. I don't. I don't know who the answer is right now. This is only the second week college football. They're certainly a lot of names out there. Dante williams assistant head coach defensive past game. Coordinator is taking over as interim head coach first african american head coaching. Usc football history. So right there. We've already said certain precedent just by doing that alone. He certainly has a. He's out front because he's what about eleven gained ten or eleven games left in the season so he has an opportunity. You get the names that you're gonna get the normal names out there right you're gonna get the change franklins. You're gonna get the iowa state coach you just going to be throwing names out there Coach peterson who was at washington. I mean he's gonna get all of those things you're gonna get bill. O'brien who's at alabama now. Who who's they're doing a good job. Maybe there's a rebirth. You don't get sexy lane. Kiffin again he can. Let's let's revisit that the yankees did it before with billy martin who think revisit lincoln i don't i don't know that brought up the other day on a lane. Kiffin had season. They went ten and two. They had no scholarships. Yeah we dot college ships. Whatever the fallout wills lane. That's in the past. He's grown now. He's more mature. You could certainly tell it. I don't know that they're going in that direction. I've yet to address that situation with anybody But there's coaches coaches in the pros. This is one of the premier jobs in all college football And we certainly need to be at the top in front of everybody when you talk top four and five in college.

Tonight it's tough to kind of get into a rhythm of the. I definitely four possessions. But we're explosive in some of those and made some big plays what a play by van jefferson to be able to get up the awareness to finish that more kion will in max next keyshawn. J. will max coming to you. Live from above the heineken river deck. Pure seventeen dan graziano gonna play hot news or not news with us in ten minutes and speaking of hot news. Andy dalton just fields both played against the rams and the bears thirty four fourteen lawson yesterday. Coach matt nagy was asked the question on. Everyone's mind after seeing. Andy dalton live. I think would bear stearns water. No is what does give you that at this point. Justin fields does not well. That's a good question. I understand it but when you look back and you say and after you're able to watch the tape and see where you're at you you know that you know we talked an. I brought it up in regards to producing and scoring touchdowns and and winning and so we're always evaluating that. I thought that andy did a pretty good job yesterday of being able to get the ball out to guys where he needed to uncertain situations. I you look back. In the biggest the biggest air that he had was that interception to start the game and sometimes those can be big ones because that's momentum deal right on third down so you know without getting into the comparisons too much. I just think that right now. When we're evaluating andy and i thought he did a good job of being able to put us in a good situation using just and when we dead. Justin did well to keep what what what what are you didn't say was playing our best quarterback i mean decisions obviously not made on. Who gives you the best chance to win. It's made on long term development development for justin fields. What do you think what coach said. What would you do. I think i have to. I understand what my job. Security is a coach. If i feel secure and i have the information that i'm okay now. I can make an intelligent decision. What the quarterback but we all clearly know digestive fields is better quarterback not only for short term but also for the long term. But if i if. I got some wiggle room meaning i can go two or three games. With andy dalton. Did i could maybe do that much like the baltimore. Ravens did several years ago. flacco the mark jackson. What do you need to see to go a couple of games adult and like you can't beat cincinnati. Okay is he. can we beat cincinnati. Is he giving us the best chance to beat since he's not mid game and both like i'm probably gonna because i'm owen for the division is owen four if i lose the cincinnati. It's it's a blow it here. It's a hammer. But if i win. I'm good so if he just made the best chance to win the second third quarter. The andy dalton has told me tobacco for the rest of the year job. If i don't have all the information justin feels needs to play but you know what the hell is matt nagy talking about. Andy dalton produced heard. Andy dolan produce what he had to pass. Attempts are over ten yards like every other quarterback in the damn. Nfl have four or more pass attempts over ten yards. So it's more matt nagy system that bothers me here i just. I don't understand what andy on gives you. And i understand you could say well. It's a revenge game for him to go back. And you know that whole narrative. Play the best player man. Play the guy that gives you the best start. Justin fields week too. Damn right i would. Why wouldn't you. I gotta say based on what he said but i thought be patient. Justin fields make sure you take care of him bad offensive line. Let let them go through. Weeks of you know weeks of practice Said about the fact is the divisions own for and a win against the bengals. Who aren't exactly the gimme they were last year. 'cause joe boroughs healthy right. They just minnesota. Okay okay playing game. They're not like they were last year. Without joe borough a little live or right. If you lose that game you really put yourself behind the eight ball differently than if you win it. So i think i'm right now where i am is i gotta play this game by ear. I do start. Andy dalton play by ear but if they start falling down big. I think i gotta put injustice. I don't even know that i'm going to. I don't even know that. I'm gonna give the opportunity to fall down big you when you are managing the game and coaching the game. You you should be able to see which way to win is black agree with that too. I shouldn't have said big right. You have to have to keep yourself live in the game. Right why why start. What what is antidote on. Give that justin feels does not a tackling dummy. So so feels doesn't get hurt but you're playing against sensitive here by the way it again. Since you're not against the rams i get like i'm just curious like why you guys wiggle room. Be patient. allow any bears offensive line can make the cincy sir move around the eighty five bears but who has the feet the move around to come. Yes yeah but this is like good. But i was donald j you your best serve when you're young. If you not one hundred percent ready to look from the sidelines to should be able to understand what they're doing. I'm not saying play. Andy dalton entire game. All i'm saying is keep it is tight as you can keep it if it starts to look like. It's going to slip away. You insert him into the lineup Just feels to the lineup at third quarter second quarter whatever may be to inject something in the rest of the team now. All of a sudden they fired. Look you know because the players the veteran guys they know you don't have to worry about them so let's say for instance it's ten six at the end of one but it should be twenty one six in favor of chicago. In all of a sudden they insert justification lineup. People like lille makov said he he feels a certain way comes back to law man allen roberts feels a certain way because this like yes so you gotta you gotta know the postal your team when you make these decisions. I think that's a really interesting point. You have to know the pulse of your team. What would make you think that matt nagy knows the pulse of his team talk. Come on max from everything we've seen from the way they labeled antidote from the beginning of the year key. Qb one to give them credit him and ryan pace. Updraft getting justin fields. But i think that he understands how his team and what his team will have different you. I mean different sense of what nagy's doing. I give them a little more credit than most people because when your job is on the line the temptation is to look out for. What's for right now right like let me cover my but right now. What do him making the the better longer. Term plan is actually a good sign from nag. But that's why. I say when you i pose the question to me. It depends on what i've been told so. If i've been told that everything is okay right now then. I feel a certain way. But if i'm being told nothing in person keeps walking by me a practice not speaking to be or just you know because owners and general managers. You don't see the writing on the wall and they don't even say eighteen they make everything tents but if i'm being told let's do this now i could operate accordingly. I see i think that's smart by the bears. The bears have never got quarterback right in my lifetime. You gotta get this right. you've got to potentially green on remember but no i. Don't i get a little bit loss. Because you're saying if anti doesn't start out well play justin field so what's that. It's less than ideal. Do from sitting back on the sideline. because i'll tell you why because it is a revenge. Game and andy dalton can somehow win. He buys justin fields. Another week of what key was talking about learning on the sidelines. Just trying to buy him a little time. But i hear you. i've listened. Situation is not ideal right. If you go back. And i'll say again if you go back and you look at the baltimore. Ravens in harbaugh was on the hot seat that year. They selected the marge accident end when he was supposed to be playing another position. But they said oh. We wanted to be a quarterback they missed round and wittily on some read option stuff or whatever in the game starts to slip away and they say the themselves. You know what this does not get us fire. We're going to go down in flames. With lamar jackson. They put the more in. He led them to the playoffs. The next year he became the mvp but having opportunity to sit back. And kind kinda see. What's out there. He got those few games in then bam. This is only four with one more game now in the season makes seventeen. If you're on foreign a division in you can afford to lose to cincinnati and maybe still be okay in the division but it would be nice to nice to pick up. That's when you look at the schedule you see. Cincinnati like okay. That's a winnable game even with dalton and it's a very different people get this twisted right. This they get bent. It's not the andy. Dalton and mike greenberg had a whole thing they did a great job on get up the other day where they're talking about like. This is not like alex smith and patrick mahomes. It's not that's like san francisco right garoppolos. A good quarterback can compete for a super bowl. And now you develop trae. Lance is more of project. This is not that this is all we got a kid who's probably ready to go now but we have a bad offensive line. He's only going to get better with more time. We're not ready to win a super bowl now but maybe we can make a little playoff run. That'd be good for everyone involved. So you gotta. I agree with you. Gotta play it by ear very similar to baltimore situation. Baltimore had a lights out defense in a young quarterback that could do some stuff but they wouldn't ready to play him at onto wolves full and i think this this smart is very very smart by matt nagy to wait a game or two or quarter to in this next game to make that decision. You've always said that. Her smart matt nagy in the same center. You you've always says being no. No no i get it. You always said that the veterans will tell you who to play. Yes they will. Here's one of the bears veterans david montgomery on fields touchdown run j. fields. A special. he already has a natural order. Tim of that. You know kind of changes the flow of how things go You know he's a great kid humble human being so when it happened. We very refreshing to see Via is going to do he do. What does that say about quarterback. What does that say when when you're running back saying he a special or to me. That tells me that he somebody that wants to be led by justin fields. And i'm not saying that. He's not saying andy. Dolan can't lead but sometimes when you're around different people they give off a different type of feeling key suggesting does but that's what i was saying. J. so you you have that six to ten and you probably should be up. Twenty one to six in. The offense is just clunking alone a you insert him into the lineup in that or that he brings when he's in that huddle everybody is big now. And that's how you use that to your vantage. If you know the polcy your team now have matt nagy that. Know the pulse of the teen. Then that's on him. I mean you know. I went through a similar situation. I went through a similar situation with bill. Parcells in vinnie. Testa verdy versus glenn foley they were gonna give glenn and opportunity but we all knew to test the verdy one v once came in. It was a rap. Keyshawn j. maxx brought to you by straight talk. Wireless get a samsung galaxy. Eight thirty to five g. for only two hundred ninety nine dollars. No contract straight talk wireless five capable device required actual availability coverage and speed may vary. I don't need to see twice time for hot news or not news. Dan graziano read a statement. Dan tells us if that's hot news or not news. Let's get started with a wild finish last night. Dan ready raiders overtime win over the ravens week. One dan hot news or not news hot news. Because i mean it's crazy that the raiders won the game but the fact that the ravens lost it. I think is the hot news here because this is a ravens team that is coming off a real rough training camp where they haven't really had you know everyone together on offense because there's been so many injuries they traded away. One of their tackles to a conference rival the struggle attack. Last night i think the ravens issues surfacing late in that game are big news as we look ahead to. I think it's gonna be really tough. Afc north race hot news. For the raiders. The raiders finally got one of those signature. Wins on a jon. Gruden in the past. Dan raiders would just squander this things go bad. It went south in a hurry for them is good to see them. Finally get a win and make some sense yeah. I think it's big trouble for the ravens. 'cause i get worried we worry about calamari. Run around. Save his life. I've watched lamar jackson do that last night. Especially with that right. Tackle being horrible. It's hot news. The the raiders need to win a game like that and they did did. Did the raiders beat the kansas city chiefs early in the season last year. Was that not a signature win. I gotta see the raiders. Hold up over a whole season before. I'm buying in fairness jon. Gruden raiders aaron rodgers. Post game comments after matlock floor called the packers lost embarrassing hot news or not news dan. Well i mean it was embarrassing so i would say not news. Look i i think aaron rodgers leflore are. I think are on the same page. Rogers issues with the team have been with the front office. He's been clear on that everything i've been told over the last couple years. Is that the relationship between rogers and floor is good. I think everyone felt like it was embarrassing. And i think that you know they'll they'll work to get it fixed. So they thought the game was was big news for the saints. I think the packers are going to end up being just fine. I'm going to go with not news on post game comments after a really rough loss. I would say it's not news. Peduto more not with. Dan is saying but more lack of preparation and training camp only seven. Patty practices less than two hours in each one of those padded practices. No real preseason reps and when you look at them playing the saints. It looked like they were not prepared which dan said i think they'll be fine. Big news for the saints dan. I'm gonna go hot news here. It's not what aaron rodgers said. It's how he said it. I sound like my mom right. The tone of how aaron rodgers speak sometimes to the media considering what he went through this past summer. I think really rubs fans especially green bay packer fans the wrong way. I think it's news because the packers looked terrible. And you mentioned a key. Seventy seven padded practices. There's not a lot of preparation and then the comments. He made really put it on the coaching staff as we discussed yesterday. I think that's actually hot. News is hot news or not news with dan. Graziano jalen hurts three touchdowns in his first start of the year. Dan hot news or not news. Hot news remembered jalen hurts. This year is on a mission to convince the philadelphia eagles that they don't need to go make a big trade. For someone. Like the shawn watson aaron rodgers or someone like that next off season. This is his audition and coming right out of the gate he had. He hit a big one. I mean this was. This was a guy. Say look. don't overlook me. I can be your answer at quarterback long way to go in the season but great. Start for jalen hurts. Hot news for jalen hurts dig. Dan is right there. We talk about going out and getting a shower and watching jalen hurts. Doesn't get the necessary respect around national football league from the pundits not the players on the field but people that in my eyes that don't watch football to know that this guy can really play. It was a decision made by nick. Sabin that put this narrative out on him. When nick saving went to and he transferred to oklahoma two years later in lit it up people automatically assume. The jalen hurts. Could play the position. Hot news when you get a win on the road and your first game as a starter against the falcons especially hot news. When the same day the other quarterback that used to play for your team play marginally against seattle and saw their head get beaten and the other quarterback who took your job is not playing as well as this is hot news. Look at what the eagles did they use the second round pick on him when they had carson wentz. They gave him all the reps with the ones right he he. The team responded to last year. Got him devante. Smith who is excellent and been excellent. This is hot. News jalen hurts also takes care of the ball and the team plays forum. Mike able calling out. Julio jones for a personal foul hot news or not. News dan look. It's hot news. And here's why when i was titans camp i was asking know i always ask everybody. What's your concern heading into the season. He said these guys and he's talking about his veteran players have not all been on the practice field together enough who jones was sitting out nursing some stuff. Aj brown similar stuff going. On there and rebel was concerned. The team would not be ready to play out of the gate because of this. And i think he's venting toward leo jones. Who by the way one of the reasons. These non atlanta anymore is in like basically didn't practice a lot during the season 'cause he was nursing health injuries so they've got all get on the same page there in terms of how they prepare for games in tennessee. I think they will. But i think this is legitimate. Frustration bubbling to the surface daily. Dan is certainly hot news. And you alluded to something about frustration. Anytime coaches start to speak out against players is some frustration setting in somewhere about practice habits lack of targets not hustling not doing what they think you should be doing. But i still don't think they've rabl should be calling out. Julio jones when he's supposed to be a defensive mastermind in mighty mouse ran all over him look for cheese. I mean that's simple. Exactly what he said. Where about the defenseman. And let's see how your relationship continues to develop with julio jones after you call him out specifically when you had a horrific defensive day i think it's hot and everything everything. We talked about so far as hot news including this. There's a way a coach call out star player. Hold him accountable showed the team. We saw arians. Did it with brady last year's difference different quarterback but there was something there was a little shortness to this. There was a little edge to this. That tells me it's not just one of those situations like coach was mad. And kinda hung. Julio out to dry. I didn't like it. I think it was hot news. That's hot news or not. News dan. Graziano huron keyshawn j. amax. Dan always great to hear from you. Dan graziano on the goodyear hotline by the way brought to you by good. You're making the plays that move. You forward goodyear more driven. Thank you dan. we're going to get to more of this. Julio jones stuff and he's going to tell you something about julio that's even hotter news than that that's keyshawn j. will on espn radio. Siriusxm channel eighty.

Oh lord thanks for joining us america. Thank you so last night Joy watching hard knock. Yes same and then. The dodgers played the pirates and found myself flipping back and forth because hard knocks was boring. And that's actually great news for the dallas cowboys. You're officially boring. You're you're you're boring team ever have somebody in your family. Think about your family. I i can. You're driving around listening to me your watch me on tv anybody in your family. That's always got a lot of drama. The the most successful people in your family. There's a name for people that don't have a lot of drama. Called successful people. Successful people tend to have smarter life habits better life habits they can see problems dilemmas before they happen. And i watched the cowboys. Now and dax grown-up but amari cooper is a grown up and demarcus lawrence. I watched the show. Looks like a grownup and zack. Martin's grown up and tyron smith grownup jalen smith boring the kansas city chiefs for all their stars are remarkably quiet. Patrick mahomes goes home to his beautiful wife and child has dinner and watches film the loudest cowboy in the last. Several years was zeke. Remember those first couple of years came out of college was a tire fire. There was something every week. And now he's really matured member dez bryant. He never did. Tim duncan in the spurs dynasty. That lasted fifteen years. Brady's dynasty in new england that lasted for almost twenty. You know what they never were noisy. You start looking around this league the steelers in the seventies and the eighties and the nineties most of my life. The pittsburgh steelers were the franchise of formidable blue collar. Ibm about five years ago. The steelers got. I don't know if you noticed really noisy. And they've never recovered who isn't sh- buffalo is quiet kansas city for their stars. I don't hear much baltimore. Lamar jackson i see him. Occasionally get off that jet ski. That's about it. It's about all i hear ozzie. Newsome's been one of the best general managers and executives in this league for twenty five thirty years. I don't know if i've ever heard him talk. La rams join our here. It's amazing there in los angeles. They might as well be in jacksonville. You have to squeeze information. Out of aaron donald. They never you never hear about them. They're never in trouble. In fact they brought in a loud guy. jalen ramsey. Who wants brought a brink's truck to a jags practice. Even he's pretty quiet now. I watched this show hard knocks for years. The two loudest teams were hugh jackson's browns in. Rex ryan's jets. How did that end up. Folks the only news tampa's made this off season. Hey we re signed all our star players. I want to congratulate the cowboys for graduating too boring and adulthood. It's a good sign fact the loudest cowboys jerry jones. The owner sorta got. He's the only one making noise anymore. Heard brought to you by jersey. Mike's above so this is interesting. Jamal adams middle of our show yesterday has agreed to contract for the seahawks. So let's start. It's a very positive show. Let's start with good news. Jamal adams has great and now he's well compensated and that gives seattle five great players either in their prime or darn close to it. Russell wilson. Jamal adams dwayne brown. Bobby wagner decay. Metcalf i've always said in the nba. You gotta have at least two great players in their prime to win a championship. Really really good players. Ideally if you get three like katie stephan clay you got a dynasty but if you have two great players in their prime that's a championship team and in the nfl. You need like five minimum. Hopefully six kansas city may have seven. Well then you're favored to win the super bowl. So that's good. You look around the nfl the organization right now. They have at least five. Hopefully six great player is tampa bay. It's baltimore kansas city. You it's the forty niners. It's now the seahawks green bay now. I've always said once she at great. You should take all the money you can all the money. You can your first contracts. But i do think russell wilson. We'll have a decision to make. And i know his wife isn't giselle and i know like aaron rodgers. Maybe he doesn't have the big state farm commercial but there are times in life. That money's not the most important thing i'll give you an example transportation. Just spend the money on a car much car breaking now. I want to be late to that big meeting. You want to get the label at work. Yeah bob's undependable. Cars breaking down. Just pay just pay for the car just have reliable transportation by the way you lose money on it. Cars are a depreciating asset. Houses aren't boats actually don't lose their value over time but cars. Do you drive it off the lot. It for thirty percent less. Take the loss. It's worth losing money. You do not want to be undependable person at work. You don't want to be late to a big wedding. You don't want to be laid to work. You don't wanna be late to a meeting. You don't want to be late to a client. Be to pick up your kids. You don't wanna be late to put your kids in a recital or lose money on that. It's very interesting. i think. Russell wilson after this year has to start graduating to a different class. So i've i've always believed in the nfl. For great quarterbacks. There's two classes. There's the i do. Contracts twenty to thirty to take every penny thirty two and beyond don't take loss now players in the nba and nfl have revenue stream seven figures annually in social media. You saw the patrick mahomes shoe deal russell. Get one of those. Nfl players now have multiple revenue streams. This is what drew brees brady. Figured out drew brees. I do contracts to all the money should saints. Were losing last. Couple took a little less by the way made it up in endorsements and eventually nbc tv deal but he elevated his brand because he was when it drew brees is not working at nbc. If he's seventy nine his last five years he's not he's not getting those gigs kirk cousins. Getting that gig so for quarterback. And i'm somebody take all the money but the world has changed for. Nba stars and quarterbacks. They're now getting shoe deals. They can now make millions on instagram and russell's not there yet but if russell's nine eight an hour the playoffs every year because he he's running for his life or he's twelve and five and getting to the conference championship. Russell is gonna walk right out of this. He'll he'll have made eleven million dollars. Less had better teammates made it back in shoes made it back in instagram. And i think he's getting very close to this because if you look at seattle they're going to have to pay decay metcalf in a year. Isn't russell better with decay. Metcalf you certainly better with the wind brown. I'm not saying do it now. He's not there yet. But i think with aaron rodgers. you're getting to a point where aaron is better taking a little less and winning games. Brady figured it out. Drew brees figured it out. And i think the next two guys are erin and russell. So i'm happy for jamal adams but just know they gotta get that dwayne brown thing and that decay metcalf thing figured out in the next year and a half those. Those fell is going to be expensive and those guys absolutely make russell wilson more viable through his endorsements social media. Make him a bigger deal so there are times where you take a little less. You take a loss. Just just spend money on the car and the minute it drives off the lot. Lost ten grand is lost ten grand. You don't wanna be the guy that is always late to the meeting. Because car broke down be sure to catch. Live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern not. Am pacific on fox.

I had stopped for a couple of years talking about tim tibo after he was released in the nfl and then he decided to pursue baseball and so we talked about him again he never had a chance to make the nfl he was now. Just the first guy cut by the worst roster in the nfl trying to be a fourth string tight end on a team. That doesn't even have one great and that's okay. There's there's nothing to celebrate really urban meyer's friend had let him go tough decision but drew bledsoe. Who played in the nfl. He had a brother who's a very good high school football player in a very good college football player and he was a quarterback and he tried to switch the tight end in his career and drew bledsoe talked about it yesterday on our show. My brother played at colorado was a quarterback and then he tried to switch to tight in one year and he's a big strong dude like tim and he's real athletic But he called me about a week and he goes dude. You have no idea what. It's like going from playing quarterback or you get hit on it but to running into these athletes on a daily basis and trying to learn to block those guys When you're not used to that and haven't grown up with it it's it's an almost insurmountable challenge. Yeah so all stop talking about tibo when he stops chasing his dreams but he is newsworthy and a lot of tibo fans are absolute hypocrites. Let me ask you if tivo would have made the jaguars opening day roster. You would have been outraged if i didn't acknowledge it hater agenda. No don't point fingers own it. You would have been outraged. If i did not acknowledge he made the team. So i'm supposed to not talk about it when he's the first guy. Kat one of the first guys in the league cut. It's like i remember liberals getting mad that the media was covering trump. When he ran for president my takeaway was he was newsworthy. Before he ran for president divorces is bankruptcies his casinos so the media is not supposed to cover trump and run for president. Good god we covered kanye west for about two weeks. There are certain people. In america that are newsworthy was great. It was great artists. Great politicians but their news were the that is an industry onto itself so like tibo. It's almost childlike. these this dreamlike pursuit. That's fine but when you come into the league battling for a fourth tight end spot an horrible roster horrible by nfl standards and you lead the nfl in merchandise newsworthy. And you would have demanded we talk about it if he made the team so therefore when he's the first guy cut that is news worthy to when tim stops pursuing these highly unrealistic dreams all stopped talking about him. I stopped talking about it for two years until he played baseball in which i actually thought he had a chance to make the big league team not long term not to be good but make it. Here's urban meyer. On releasing him the end of the road pretend. Nfl professional football. Guess it is. You know we didn't get that deep with obviously. He's his own man. elite warrior. Elite competitor is also thirty. four years. old just admit you don't like the result of this baudry. You're not really bothered by the news. That i talk about it because you would have demanded i talk about it. Had he made the team. You just don't like how it ended and so we're in that finger pointing air your fault your fault your fault. You just don't like the end result but you want us to talk about him. He's just not good enough to play in this league. He's a great guy. He's not an nfl player. Be sure to catch.

I thought was totally boring because the cowboys now whole bunch of adults and when you have adult you're going and it's great news. The cowboys and i was thinking as i was watching mike. Mccarthy era guy kinda wears ahead number one of those speeches last night. I love mccarthy. Here we go. We're popular team. We're not in this be popular. We've talked about a winning culture in a whirlwind. it comes with the place though. This was our best week of practice. Let's warren from it. I went to garrett in tonight. Let's turn of everybody so you bring it to these guys a lot of swearing. It doesn't really work for me. And i thought to myself. Am i too hard on mike mccarthy. So this i believe the coaches you can put them in a budget groups and so. Let's just do that so there's the geniuses that they've literally feel like when you go into a game ballot. Check andy reid sean. Payton and you're facing them you as a fan think we could get out worked here. But they're going to trick us or fool us or they got some gadget. Bella check read sean. Other geniuses guys are very close to genius because they just always win and they went a lot mike tomlin pete carroll john harbaugh. There are an inch like just an inch from genius. Maybe not a genius. But how come they all. They never have losing seasons. They're always winning. And then there's the potential geniuses. They're not there yet. But boy like elon. musk right. Before you created spacex everybody's talking about mcveigh's sean. Mcdermott brian. florez. Kyle shanahan matla floor. Mike abeles defense gear like they're really good maybe one more year of it but then there's the maybe not geniuses but old dudes ever really good. You always know your team will be prepared. Ron rivera. bruce. Arians mike zimmer frank right teams always prepare and then there's the other category and this is not good for mccarthy used to be geniuses mike mccarthy and gruden. They don't win enough anymore. Gruden has no playoff winning. What like eighteen years. I know he was gone for a while but his last three years. He's like ten games under five hundred. Mike mccarthy had never playoff win five six years last three years. He's like ten games under five hundred. That's it mccarthy and group. Why are you so hard them. They're not winning enough tomlin's always winning harbaugh's always winning pete's winning mean good. God look at the nonsense in washington at ron. rivera had to deal with. He got him to the playoffs. Ron rivera got that message to the playoffs. Didn't even have a quarterback yet. Be sure to catch live editions of the heard. Weekdays at noon eastern nine. am pacific on fox. Sports radio one and the iheartradio app. I get a lot of heat. When i'm critical of baker mayfield or jameis winston or cam newton in college for their lack of maturity. I got a ton of hate mail and jameis winston. I'm like i'm not into it. You can't jump up on tables and yell things like that if your quarterback if a receiver does it if a middle linebacker does it. I don't like it can't do it as a quarterback too immature baker mayfield. Don't like it please. Video hate it. Cam newton big ben early in his career. Did some stuff can do it your quarterback so he's a prime example. We have four quarterback battles and not going to count san francisco. It's garoppolos job. He's twenty four eight as a starter. Trae lance isn't ready. Grapple is going to start the season. they're gonna have packages for trae lance. That currently is not a quarterback. Bad left garoppolos job. There's four really four saints denver new england in chicago. And i want you to notice. They're all the exact same battle so the saints clearly jameis. Winston is the more talented thrower of the football. He's he's got the better armed. Talent is better college player taste mail. He throws a better ball. He's more productive but it's a battle. Denver drew lock is jay cutler. Huge arm really talented basketball player. We know armed talent far superior bridgewater. But it's a battle new england. You cam and mack jones one guy the former. Mvp six six play. Mak- run you over. One guy has a low ceiling. Efficient chicago just fields. Six three to twenty eight and was the third-fastest human that ran with all this weekend yet. He may not start with andy. Dalton one of the words being used fear concern worry that the more talented player will make more mistakes. Mistakes being bad judgment now injustice fields case. It's just youth so it's really three of the four but in his in his case it's like well. He's young been in these games. He could turn the ball over. Having you know. I was talking to dave wanstead yesterday about this. Like all these defense in the preseason what you see the line of scrimmage is what you see. Everybody's hiding all their stuff in. What is this point to that talent has limitations that andy dalton. Teddy bridgewater tastes him hill. Mack jones significantly less talented may start. Because the coaches think won't turn the ball turnovers equal loss in the nfl. I mean it's almost every week. It who's got the fewer turnovers so when i talk about judgment and decision making this is why the four quarterback battles we have the more talented guy is in a battle with a far less talented guy in all four cases. You're worried about mistakes and judgment from the more talented player. So that's why. When i create by the way i was right on menzel. I've been right on winston. I was certainly right until the last seven games on baker was his judgment baker out bad judgment until the end last year. Jamus johnny zell cam. By the way what's always been the knock on him from mechanics to efficiency. I feel like there's more there and don't see it. So that's why i'm critical of the one position in football. It's not a talent position. I mean talent matters. It's a judgment to judgment position and all four more townie guys. Their coaches have them in a quarterback battle as significantly better talents. Because they're worried about decisions and mistakes. Be shortage catch live editions. Weekdays at noon eastern not am pacific. We've said this before one of the things. That's really amazing about the. Nfl is how many players drafted late in the draft. Go on to be great players. Antoine buffet super bowl champ. Just retired last him. He played for was the new york giants. He ended up going to three pro bowls. He was a six round pick. Nobody offered him a scholar. He goes to howard and he just grinds it into a great career. He had eight years with a hundred plus tackles that is that is massive production and he wrote a book called bet on yourself inside the mind to the ultimate underdog. And he's also gonna podcast the man to man pod with darius butler who we just had on and again he just six round pick at a howard. Seven playoff appearances in fourteen years antoine buffet. Buffet a for years and years. I called him antoine bethesda. And it's not. And he's french. And i just found that out and he's joining us. Live on rose wasn't going. You're such an underdog i called you by the wrong name for years that july story. Not the first order lag. So let me let me. Just start with this because you announced your retirement after last year and you played sixteen games back in two thousand nineteen with the giants. So let me ask about daniel jones because we got into this conversation about the giants earlier in the show. Today i love the roster. I love the offensive line and daniel jones scares me to death. He's got a fumble problem. You tell me as who's played with the best you played with. Eli you played with peyton. What do you like about daniel jones. Why should i believe in him. Math think day will jones has old intangibles right. So like you said. I think he does struggle with holding onto the ball Obviously you know the quarterbacks coach that he's worked with in the past work with pay work with alaso as someday he has to. he has to improve on. That team wants to win. If their offense wants to be good. He has to protect the ball. But he's agile. He can move leaking beach with his legs. You can beechwood his arm. He's very smart. So that's why. I still have confidence in dj. I have confidence in these. I think this year he will get over there. I hope he gives over there but like you say he does have to fix that problem as far as onto the ball all right so when you look jamal adams just got the bag safeties. Generally in this league not a lot make big money. Is he worth that kind of money. In a salary cap league for the seahawks. And if so why i think is you know i love to see when guys on get paid right so you see you have justice simmons give pay you see bhutto baking pain and you see jamal out of just got paid so What he does for that defense. What he does for the seattle seahawks. He's worth it. You know if you put him in another Maybe not but what he does for that defense will he brings to that defense rushing a quarterback he has i think twenty plus sacks He's worked demand and he's a bowl of you know he's always around the ball. He's a difference maker. Yeah he was on special teams in his jets career. They put him at linebacker a lot. So he's a guy. Seattle didn't have a lot of playmakers defensively and he certainly qualifies as that. So i was watching the hard knocks last night and the best compliment. I could give the cowboys antoine is. They're boring and i. I do think boring teams that. Do them a new show. Well and aren't that noisy end up being a lot of the better teams take a year career. The colts niners cardinals. Giants were you ever in a noisy locker room I was. I was not my talk career. Was you know the locker rooms i was in. Were really mellow. I'm especially coast as you know we went about our business as as we showed an arm and we will good other places. We were mellow The records were as good as we were in eddie but like you said i think a lotta times in noisy locker room could be could be bad. could be detrimental on dependent on the guys. You have the locker room. Obviously we have great leadership as far as coaching staff and veteran players You kind of overcome that book which you know which would you say the cowboys being born in might be a good thing for this year by the way you were on those tony dungy teams in those peyton manning teams those were as good as anybody in the league for eight years. What was that experience like. Peyton got into the hall of fame. What were those years like. What was expected of you every day to come to work and be a pro right so at a early age as a rookie. Being able to come in that building seen reggie wayne. Barbara harrison paid man. How old guys came to work everyday. So as a as a young cat on l. added was followed them right and then as my career went on it was i loved. You know i was. I was talking about some of the best future hall of famer so again. It was on coach. Dungy treat you like like a man Expansion to come and do your job as players. We run the wall for for four dollars so again man. It was everyday come and do your job go home. you know. Be be approach pro on the field off. You know it's interesting so you had tony. Dungy very softspoken defensive guy. Totally mellow you. Also had bruce arians he likes to party. He's got he is. He can be crazy. Did you ever appreciate. I mean you love dungy. Did you appreciate darrien in style. Which is the opposite of dungy of course So we had He was interim head. Coach dog His cancer section. Yeah exactly and then have be. Also when i was in arizona in our appreciated both appreciated dodgy more mellow. Nba ba Talk tries to you and like you say he was very very upbeat. But what you can save about. Both those guys that you know. They love their players. They love football. And i think that's why guys respect about being ankles dungy by. They don't treat you like man they can keep it honest. Would you take them. Keep it a hunting with you and player. That's all you could ask for head coach. So we've got a bunch of rookie quarterback's right now. We got zack. Wilson we got jordan. Love qualifies justin fields. Trae lance mack jones. So take me to your nfl career. Go back and look at all the quarterbacks you had what is something as defensive player antoine. What is something that if you see it from any of these young quarterbacks let's start with a negative that you're gonna go that's a bad habit or a bad sign. What something in your career that. If you saw young quarterback get into something maybe a habit. It may be a tendency that is not good plan of saints possessory a lot of times. You have those young quarterbacks in staredown their targets right so as a safety at the db defender. That's what you love but you know on the other side. You don't want your. Your quarterback is going in in pre snap already norway where he's going as far as standard our see with so. Obviously you know as as a rookie you come in. The game is going to be much faster. Defensive coordinator be scheming scheming. Things up four young quarterback what what that quarterback hasn't seen yet in the league so it's gonna be a lot of thrown at rookie quarterback but as a safety as a defender. I would love going against rookie quarterback they would tell me ninety percent of the time where they were going on while the ball. Okay so now. Take all those young quarterbacks. What is something you will see with them and go okay. That he's got it that that that's a quality that you admired with young quarterbacks and it was usually a sign they were going to be successful. So i'm gonna go back to the worker quarterback on when i was in india andrew luck right so as you look Just the way i think. Wait as staffer. He couldn't attend on. Ota's in the spring right so he came to. I think it was many camp and when he came to many campy he knew the whole playbook he was moving guys he was lining up. And at that time on my own mind that this guy is special so when a when a quarterback and come in from the shoulder up mentally he has it. That's when you know you know you have some special. Because a lot of these quarterbacks you're will be able to throw the ball they'll be able to run They'll be able to do a lot of stuff from the shoulder up mentally if they can have it then you you know you have some special by the way you played. Colts played niners. You played cardinals. You play giants. I wanna talk niners so garoppolo is twenty. Four and eight as a starter. Jimmy's good okay. Injury promo good trae lance in the last five hundred. Eighty days has completed twenty passes. I know that trays great. If you ran that organization what would you do their quarterback situation. Jimmy quarterback I'm not russian. Trae lance play the position. Like you said jimmy g. He's injury prone but his record sold that he's a good quarterback in the nfl Obviously you you do jabs lance for raising you draft him high for reason but i'm not rushing now if it's The situation where jimmy. Johns eagles initiating. He's not playing. Well then a young guy he shot but going into this i this i for his game. Jimmy quarterback and i'm walking with him until you know some drastic happens. So jimmy g. is still in his athletic prime. Andy dalton isn't what would you do in chicago with a clearly more talent adjusted fields. But i mean don't though has been as good as as you know he. He's gotten to the playoffs. Before in that instance. I don't know adult and isn't as good as garoppolo. What would you do if you coach the bears. Would you go with the kid or the veteran. I'm going with the veteran. I'm going with the veteran Especially with the defense. I have one side of the ball. I know to keep me a game right so again Voting young guy. You can go some growing pains. You're going to go through semantics absence you'll go do some different things. Where andy dolan. He's event you've seen a lot Again like you say. He's not as good as jimmy g. book out of. I just don't think personally. Justin field is ready to take the snap on the first game again. This could be a situation where week six weeks seven You can put justin fills in a game. He could be a number. One quarterback budge storm week one I'm a veteran. And i'm sticking with andy dog so here you go. So here's a pro bowl safety. He's like the old guys see. He's seen all these. He's watching there is he. What did you say the start this interview. You said ninety percent of the time with a rookie quarterback you knew exactly where they were going now. You have your exceptions rule right. Where rookie quarterback comes in. He's just ahead of his time. He's ahead of that learning curve. but right now I i will stick with over the veterans on sill like i said a show some drastic the man to man pod with darius butler antoine great senior congrats on all your success in semi that book.

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of the lotto on football here on the big blue view radio network i am the host nicholas vlada still in his dead time of the summer. But we're starting to ramp up. The scott fishbowl has finally started in the beginning of july. That is a fantasy football industry league with. I think over a thousand participants so that just kicked off on july fifth. So we're gonna be getting some more fantasy content coming to you on big blue radio but today on florida one football. I wanna talk about an article. That dropped on biglou view that i wrote and it was an nfc east dream team article. There was an offensive and defensive dream team. And i want to kind of go over on this podcast. The offense of choices that i selected so i constructed this team based on twenty twenty one. So it's not what players have done for me. It's what they potentially can do for me as they progress along their career. So there's gonna be some guys in here. That are a little bit of a stretch. And i also went with a team construct so i wasn't going to replicate a couple of different skill sets though are fifteen players that are on this team so the head coach offense coordinator and the defense coordinator for the defensive podcast can use different personnel packages. I thought that was a pretty creative way. Although i did kind of squeak in sixteenth which will go over a little bit for the offensive. Because i needed to get thirteen personnel in there because jason gary loves him some thirteen personnel. And if he were to be calling the plays you know you need thirteen personnel sup. Let's dive into this real quick for the quarterback. I think this was the easiest choice. Sad to say. But it is dak prescott. The dallas cowboys starting quarterback. I mean the guy was on pace for just under six thousand yards last year and a lot of that was because the cowboys defense was horrendous. And they weren't catch up mode for those first four games until dak prescott got hurt and we five by the new york giants but he was just on an unprecedented type of statistical season. Because of the team itself is terrible. Defense under mike nolan ends up getting injured. But we've seen such progression from dak prescott in his young career. His accuracy has significantly improved his velocity his ability to generate a lot of power from his base through his hips. And then use that torque. Drive the football into windows. All those things have improved in. His mind is really improved as well. He's really really quick through his progressions. Really really quick through his reads. I think it was an easy choice. Even though he's coming off that devastating injury as much as i would love to select daniel jones. Daniel jones not put together a consistent season quite yet. I think you know he's only heading into your three. I think it's within the realm of possibility that he does. He cleaned up his turnovers. A little bit last year and now he actually has a lot of skill position players around him. I mean that preska has never really hurt in that area because he had a great offense of line as always had a really good running back and also has one of the best receiving core these last year the short stint before he got injured is one of the best. Receiving core is in the league with amari cooper michael gallup cd lamb. So i think daniel jones we could see a nice progress battle. He's going to get that dak. Prescott level in twenty twenty one and then ryan. Fitzpatrick is awesome and fun and i love the guy. But he's not going to beat out dak prescott. Neither is jalen hurts. A prescott is the quarterback of this theoretical team. Now let's go to running back. So i feel like two running backs here. I want with saquon. Barkley he's coming off the injury as well as a lot of guys coming over injuries on this team going for upside here but we know who saquon barkley is. We know he is just a home. Run hitting talented running back with astronomical athletic upside now. How athletic will he be coming off his injury. I think he's still can be really really athletic. And he has shown exceptional ability as a running back in terms of once he gets to that second level. I think there've been some knocks on his vision and decisiveness. And i think that was fair but granite wallets of lines. That he's been running behind have been poor to say the least so once he gets into space his acceleration and his burst. There aren't many humans on the planet who can match that from saquon. barkley has good contact balance. He's a good receiver out of the back. They'll be cleaned up his pass protection a little bit. But i really love the fact that the giants had his homerun type hit. John's really struggled to generate explosive plays with jason garrett last year saquon. Barkley should be able to fix that so he was my running back one and then my running back to is somebody that you know what i i probably may choose somebody else and it was really really hard. Decision between ezekiel elliott antonio gibson a mile sanders and ended up going with mile sanders. Because i believe he's just an incredibly elusive back with a different type of skill. Set to saquon barkley. Although they were both teammates at penn state i think antonio gibson could easily slide in here because of his third down value has obviously down value mile. Sanders isn't as natural as antonio gibson on third down and he has dropped the football a little bit and watching his games through last year. I saw a couple of third-down drops. That were a little bit frustrating. But i wanted to go with mile sanders here because of that just elusive nature and the fact that sanders rank top ten last year in yards after contact and the numbers were significantly better than antonio gibson and ezekiel elliott in that department tonio gibson average two point five yards after contact. Ezekiel elliott two point. Eight to an mile sanders three point. Three eight and mile centers. He also has some homerun breakaway type of ability. We saw that against baltimore where he had nine attempts rush for one hundred and eighteen yards and he just got tracked down but that was really really beautiful. Seventy four yard run that he had also had an eighty two yard. Run against new orleans saints. So he has that well within his skill set and he's very very talented when he's able to employ that we saw it against pittsburgh to where you know. He was stifled for a lot of the game but he ended up having two touchdowns and one of those touchdowns a long runway able to get around the edge and use that speed and acceleration to just go up the sideline outrun one of the best rushdie fences in twenty twenty so sanders elliot gibson. I think you can pick any one of those guys. I wanted to get away from elliott a little bit. I know he's a little bit different than saquon barkley. But i wanted to go with someone who may have a little bit more upside as a pass catcher and i say that knowing full. Well that ezekiel elliott is somebody who has had a lot of success as a pass catcher but we saw last year he just wasn't as efficient. And there's a lot of reports coming out now that his trainer saying he's going to be revamped and go back to his old form but the kids still twenty five years old. I mean he's really really young. All those things can happen. But why was he so bad last year when you had tony pollard. The one of the most efficient running backs in the national football league running behind that same offense of lyon so i ended up going with mile. Sanders the philadelphia. Eagle there and i can understand why anybody else would want to go with the other two running backs that we brought up.

I find the wide receiver position to be interesting in this division. I just look at the giants in general adding could derrius. Tony had sterling. Shepard who i feel is one of the better route runners in the national football league seriously still developing young receiver the giants by receiving core. And it's very very impressive. But probably second fiddle to the amari cooper cd lamb michael gallup's of the world. You have the eagles who are little bit struggling in that department. They drafted jalen reagan in the first round last year at a. Tcu didn't necessarily live up to the hype dinged up a lot. They added devante smith very very talented rookie receiver. Who's probably going to be a thorn in the giant side for quite a while and then washington has hurry. Maclaurin very very underrated receiver. They added yami brownie. Bryan curtis samuel. He could be a line of scrimmage type at the rep but we've seen him have a lot of vertical ability last year with a conservative quarterback. Teddy bridgewater so there's a lot of good receivers here so i only had to board a choose from so i broke it down. X z slot fourth and by x. I mean usually boundary receiver and three by one sets or should say loan receiver in three by one sets. On the line of scrimmage typically disease. Somebody's going to be off. The line of scrimmage and you can move him around a little bit more slot. That's going to be the number three in three by one sets number two in two by two sets wide receiver so the innermost wide receiver and the fourth receiver would just be wherever you line up. Your fourth receiver for was a two by two set. Using wide receivers term. maclaurin can operate at the slot. He can go on the sidelines. he's just really really talented receiver. That was the fourth receiver. By the way. Terry mcauliffe and i think that's a really really solid. Pick maclaurin like i said. He's incredibly underrated in my opinion and there are already reports of him having a excellent rapport with ryan fitzpatrick. I mean he's six foot. Two hundred eight pounds. He's coming off a season where he was targeted. One hundred thirty five times caught ninety three of them for one thousand one hundred ninety three yards and only four touchdowns which is three less than what he had in twenty nineteen. I honestly think that can go up with the presence of a ryan. Fitzpatrick was a bit more of a gunslinger and the presence of yami brown. Who could stretch defense vertically. You have curtis samuel. And his skill set. Near the line of scrimmage terry maclaurin. He's a vertical threat. He's an intermediate threat. You can get him the ball on screens. He's just really really talented type of wide receiver. So i think all of these additions. At the washington football team added with lead terry maclaurin to be a really good option going into his fourth season or mean third season. I'm sorry in the national football league in the fourth receiver on this theoretical team that we have constructed here at big blue view so we have him there now the x. Receiver out with somebody. Who is new to the nfc east due to the new york giants. Next kenny golladay. And i mean we can go back and look at his stats from twenty nineteen before the injured. Twenty twenty season look at twenty eighteen. But you just can't speak enough about the prototypical ex type receiver that jesus garrett has been looking for for a while i mean he had it terrell owens. He had it in miles austin and now he hasn't in kindergarten and kenny. Golladay is the type of receiver that you can toss the football up to when he can use that incredible catch radius to high point. The ball bring it into his frame. Us physicality box cornerbacks out uses athletic ability with his lower body explosives to leap up and catch the football. Also think he's better at releasing off the line of scrimmage than he gets credit for does a really good job getting his shoulders bird ical and away from the defensive back when he's trying to jam he's very very fluid in that motion and his ability to stack really allows him to create even more separation. Because he's not one of those guys is just going to burn past people that's not really necessarily his game in terms of creating separation but he does a good job with his release creating separation and his nuance within his route. Running ability also with those little subtle push offs and everything like that using his body to box out. Like i said before. So he is the prototype type of x receiver. And i'm looking forward to see how jason gary utilizes him. Because throughout jason garrett's time as a dallas cowboys play. Caller always had a receiver like kenny. Golladay he did not have that last year. Daria sleet and tried to fill that role. But that's a little bit of a miscast usage of darius layton who is a receiver. But i think even slayton is going to benefit from the presence of kenny golladay. Not as much cloud type of coverage not as much focus on him he can focus on the lesser type of cornerbacks and allow kenny. Golladay to draw the number one candidate on this team is the ex the z. Is amari cooper. Mark cooper is one of the best route runners in the national football. His foot work at the line of scrimmage and his route stem or excellent has released is insane. And if you just watch how. He's able to sink his hips and explode. Just like it's effortless right like it's just on a dime. He's able to sink his hips and then he's inside. He's on a comeback round. He's on a quick curl and when he's able to develop the timing with his quarterback which we saw when i went the dallas cowboys with dak prescott him and dak prescott got into this groove into this rhythm and they were really really dangerous. Now cooper gets injured. He gets dinged up a little bit but he when he's healthy. I mean that is a really really underrated type of receiver. That i feel like doesn't get talked about all that much i mean. He was with the raiders. Now he's with dallas gets dinged up little bit and the shiny new toys cd lamb. But you can't really count out someone. Like a healthy amari cooper in last year with the likes of gary gilbert and benton uchi thrown on the football and eventually andy dolan he saw hundred. Twenty eight targets caught ninety two of them for one thousand one hundred and fourteen yards and five touchdowns that can easily go up now. Especially that defense is atrocious. As was last season. I expect the defense to be a little bit better with dan quinn. I think he's a much better to mind much more. Modern defensive mind than a mike nolan. So that means there's not going to be as much throwing well into the fourth quarter like. We saw so much last year early on in the season for the dallas cowboys. But i still think amari. Cooper could be prime for big year as i do the slot receiver cd lamb cd lamb second year. I mean this guy. Line of six hundred and sixty six times in the slot last year only sixty one times out wide. They loved using them there. Because you give that guy a two way. Go good luck. I mean he was able to just manipulate zones. Finding the voids the perfect job running that over route in finding the voided area between a safety dropping into his responsibility and a linebacker dropping into his middle hook responsibility and then in man coverage he sets up his route so well i mean darna homes learned that a little bit when donahue was matched up in man but the giants typically ran a lot of zone coverage against the cowboys to try to eliminate cd lamb. But we saw adrian. Colbert take two penalties by hitting cd lamb. Just a little bit too high rate the catch point whence he was running those over routes. So it's it's difficult to guard a receiver. This talented who's this fluid and space out of the slot in three by one sets specially when you can line a number one receiver up on the other side of the liner. Scrimmage not number one you try to trust. Meg coverage over there man. Everywhere he goes. Put your best guy there and then you got to focus on whoever the next outermost receiver is the number one receiver into three side on the on the strong side of the offensive formation. You get the focus on that individual as well. If he somebody like a. Say amari. Cooper or michael gallup. I mean there's just a lot of weapons to pick from cd llamas closest to the quarterback and he may be matched up in zone coverage against a linebacker and safety trying to get to his responsibility. So there's just a lot of mismatches there and he's just so good in his own right. So i selected him to be the slot receiver here already. Let's move onto the tight ends real quick now selected two tight ends in kind of a third my final thoughts piece so we'll go over all three of them here and both of the tight ends that i selected are more receiving type of tight ends. I went with dallas gutter. Logan thomas got it. I feel like is the clear number one tight end in the division. I mean the cowboys. They have delton. Schultz blake. Darwin got injured in week one last year washington drafted. I believe john bates. At a boise. They have logan. Thomas who's on this list and the giants have evan ingram who is a unique athlete. Who was very very mistake. Prone and twenty twenty had a lot of errors different types of errors fumbling the football dropping the football popping the football up in the air Slipping and falling causing interceptions. It was not a great year for a pro bowl tight end. But evan ingram didn't make this but i did select dallas qatar. Who just like i was talking about was just understands coverages so well as logan thomas puts himself into ideal situations away from the covering defender provide his quarterback an target now last year he was targeted sixty four times. He was injured. For most of the beginning of the season came back played a little bit of carson wentz. But a little bit with jalen hurts your forty six catches at sixty four targets for five hundred twenty four yards and three touchdowns but he could had a lot more man carson. Wentz was missing him. Quite often and jalen hurts was kinda getting his feet wet with him. And i mean look what nick serianni has done. What the colts now. He's going to be play calories the head guy. There his offense they loved running twelve. They loved running personnel. I mean how many times we see last season moala cox have productive fantasy day or trey burton. I mean just pick the tight end of the colts. Dallas gutter is more talented receiver than all of those individuals. And i think he's prime for big season. I know zach. Ertz is still there. Even though he's kind of almost out the door it seems like he may not get to training camp with the team but even zakar is present. Their dallas qatar is far superior player in zakar. It's at this point of their career. So i had to go douse gutter. He's the defacto one. Logan thomas is the two and thomas was targeted. A lot last year. By alex smith and company i mean he saw hundred and fourteen targets caught. Seventy seven of them for seven hundred and forty four yards and six touchdowns. I mean. This is a former quarterback who went to virginia tech and ended up on the arizona cardinals. Played think a little bit with the bills of i'm not mistaken converted to tight end learned his role as a title. Which is really really difficult to do. This guy's six foot six two hundred fifty five pounds somewhere around there but he was able to do all of those things and last season. It really kind of all came together for him. You had terry mccormack have much past that you know you had sims. You had cam sam's at antonio gibson who was a very very talented running back but he's running back. I'm more referring to receivers and tight ends. But thomas really came through and he's a really really tough player to cover for safety's because he's so big and physical and he's just faster than linebacker. So you've got to look for those hybrid type of defenders djibril peppers who i felt like did a really good job begins logan thomas in that first game and in that second game to be honest when he was dropping down on hovering the giants are kinda bill with patrick graham system to guard players like logan thomas with xavier. Mckinney's the logan ryan's and bell peppers of the world. But still these are two really really good receiving type tight ends. Neither of them are excellent. Blocking but the way i look at blocking tight ends. There's not a lot of just true blocking tight ends especially in the nfc east. You have guys like lee smith who have been around the league for a while. Jason witten who now retired guys. Who were really really good blockers. That's not as common anymore. And if it was you would see more guys than george cadle out there just dominating the blocking phase of things they would even though they don't get the touchdowns in the stats. they would still be talked about. But you don't see it as much both these guys definitely more receivers but that third tight end than i end up selecting was actually kyle rudolph because he can block a little bit. He's average added. I don't think he's exceptionally great at it. But i think he's better than what the giants have currently on their roster even know levin toilolo is built up to beat. His blocker. didn't really get to see that all that much last season. Despite the fact that he played a lot of snaps i thought mccain smith came along as a blocker a little bit more even though he was used a little bit differently as an h back and as a puller on the counter trae play. But kyle rudolph. I wanted to select him in there. Put him in the final thoughts just if they did run thirteen personnel. Because he's just an excellent route runner and he knows how to get open especially in the middle of the field and up the seems understand spacing. Excellent spatial awareness. So i wanted to give him a nod as well. Let's move onto the offensive line. I think there's definitely a picking here. That probably would change. And it's the center position. And i'll just start there to be honest and that's nick gates so i'm looking for twenty twenty one right. So jason kelsey. He's an amazing. Lima has had a great career. He's thirty two years old. Though you know he's not getting any younger and i looked at gates and i was like this is somebody that i did not expect to play as well as he did. In twenty twenty. Despite the fact that i didn't think he was even a top fifteen center but just come in as an undrafted dude in twenty eighteen out of nebraska tackle. Make that switch to center in a truncated off season and then pick up the position and be able to process it mentally like he did give him a lot of credit do that now that he has rob sale coming in. I'm hoping that he can develop and take that next step. So that's the way. I was thinking but chase from the washington. Football team is probably the pick. I mean he just earned a huge contract. And i haven't grinded through the film the washington football team but i did watch two games. The two games that they played giants and a did see him and i remember couple different plays where he was able to hold his own against guys like dexter lawrence and you know what i look at that and i say that's pretty solid guy right there so i probably put him over negates but i want when negates okay and i'm going to stick to it in this but that's definitely somebody that i would have to probably reconsider. That's the center position we have gates in there. Now the tackles. I know we're jumping around a little bit here but it's ok. What would tyron. Smith dallas left tackle and lane johnson the philadelphia eagles. Right tackle now. Tyran smith is injured a lot. He played about a hundred hundred fifty. Maybe snaps something along those lines two games last year and he usually plays around eight hundred. Eight hundred fifty snaps misses. A game or two here is dinged up. Plays through injury. He sat back injuries for awhile man and when i think of him i think he's like thirty five thirty six years old. He's only thirty years old. He's just been in the league forever since two thousand eleven. He's pretty he's pretty young still but he's so beat up. There's so much mileage on him. But i look at the upside and you'll look at the other tackles in the division right. Nobody really jumps out all that much at you. I mean you had washington draft samuel cosmi. They just got rid of their two tackles from last year jurong christian. They got rid of morgan moses. So they have a bunch of new guys. Brought in charles leno from the bears and i think he's a solid player but tyron smith is top five upside if he can string together a healthy enough season so i wanted to put him on this team and i think he's earned that through all of his solid play. But it's just one of those things that you think about near like. This is a a player that may not be able to see the field all that often. Because he's really struggled with injuries. But that's why. I picked a swing tackle. That makes it the fifteenth. I picked a swing tackle. That will go over a little bit so just in case tired smith gets hurt. This player can step it all right so that right tackle lane johnson. One of the best right tackles in the nfl. he just. He's an absolute stud. He's entering his age thirty one season but he's one of the most athletic tackles in the national football league. Still i mean. He came out of oklahoma. Was the fourth pick back in twenty thirteen but he can still kick out in the space he gets still locate drives through people's faces and i watch a lot of them because you know what the giants play him twice a year when he's not dinged up that a little bit lash early played four hundred and five snaps but you can see how he gets an edge. You could see how it turns his body. You could see how we seals. You could see how we could drive off the minor scrimmage. You could see how he can do up to the second level and locate smaller defenders. Knocked them out of the way. I mean he's just an absolute stud and that was an easy choice for me at right tackle there because the giants we're not going with the right tackle bear. I thought lyle collins coming off of his serious injury from last year where he didn't even play did not play a snap. That's somebody to consider. But since fleeing johnson's in this division i went with lane. Johnson and i didn't allow the swing tackle position because tyron smith is really injury. Prone lau collins coming off a series injury. So i wanted to go with a little bit more of a stable player in terms of health. Knock on wood. Because the swing tackle. That i did choose a swing of lyman. I should say is andrew thomas. I mean enter. Thomas look as much as i would love to sit here and say you know. He had a great rookie season. He didn't his first. Half of the season was horrendous. Up until i would say the philadelphia game was bad. Tampa bay was much better. Stabilized a lot and then they faced vance joseph and the arizona. Cardinals was not great but neither was the entire offense of line. Felt like they were just totally out-schemed remember. They had a coaching change. A little bit earlier googly. Emma was their coach. There was a lot of turmoil going on rob sale. We hope is going to stabilize this office of line lease. That's what i hope and then the baltimore game also not great. I would say but you had a lot of good reps there you see. There was a confidence about him and he wasn't making those same terrible egregious errors that he was making early in the season. So had him as a swing tackle mostly for insurance tyron smith to be honest. I mean again lau. Cons is a better player than andrew. Thomas right now but inter thomas twenty two years old. He's going to develop. And i think what we saw from him. The upside that we saw from him elite in the year or something to kind of hope that he can take into twenty one build upon it with teaching and the tutelage fraud sale and joe judge and then we could see the player that we hoped he could be when we selected him more when the giants elected him with the fourth overall selection. Over guys like trista. Wharfs mci becton and federick wills. So that's where. I went with andrew. Thomas as swing. Linemen somebody who can be that insurance policy for tyron smith now interior office of line other than the center. This was easy for me again. Zack martin brennan. Sheriff left guard zack. Martin right guard brennan sheriff there exceptional guards to the better guards in the national football league. Zack martin he was hurt. Last year only played three hundred ninety seven snaps but they were starting to play him at right tackle. He could just kick wherever you need them. And since he came into the league in two thousand fourteen. He's been one of the best offense. Lineman i mean you have clinton nelson is probably the best guard right now in the national football league. Zack martin is up there when he is healthy. So you had to go with him at that point at the left guard and then right gore for brennan. Sheriff i mean that was another no brainer for me. I mean the giants guard right now. Shane lemieux will hernandez we'll hernandez played half the season and they both gave up over fifty pressures between him and twenty twenty alone only played half the season. So i mean that's not going to be a giant in terms of the guards. I think brandon brooks is a player that could certainly be considered but again hurt the entire twenty twenty season coming off of a devastating injury. Which seems like it's the theme of a lot of these offensive teams that we're going over to the nfc east. There's a lot of these big time players especially in the trenches that are coming off just terrible. Injuries and brandon brooks is one of brennan brooks when healthy is exceptional than the other washington. Football team. guard is eric. Flowers definitely not going to go with eric. Flowers wasn't gonna go in that direction especially when you have brennan. Sheriff choose from an and brandon brooks. Who would have been waiting in the wings. Despite the fact that he was coming off of serious injury but you know what the nfc east get eric flowers back because he spent that one season with the miami dolphins. No longer there. Obviously so zack. Martin brennan share nick gates as the interior offensive linemen. And that's the offense right there. And i wanted to kind of break. That down real quick though through my thoughts as to why i selected who i selected it turns out of the fifteen players not including two thirteen personnel of kyle rudolph they were four giants saquon. Barkley kenny golladay negates. Who's a question. Mark and andrew thomas as swing tackle. There were five cowboys. Three eagles and three washington football team players. So that's the way it broke down next week. I'll be releasing a podcast on the defense. And why i selected who i selected and you can check these articles out at big blue view right now if you would like just head on over there a lot of great content coming out getting all giants nation ready for training camp at starts on july twenty seventh so i hope you guys enjoyed this.

A player former player coach a former coach and executive and analyst. Whoever do me a favor of leave me a five star review this week in the apple. Podcasts store let me know who you want to have on. And i'll go try to get them so that we can have them on in the coming weeks but before we get into everything and and the big picture takeaways from these preseason games. I really want to zero in on what we saw for mac jones this week on thursday night against the eagles. I think big picture wise. We really found out. What some of the coaches including eagles first year head coach nick serianni really thinks about the preseason with touch on that note little bit. But i believe the mac jones not only won. The new england patriots starting quarterback job but if bill belichick does the right thing and plays mac jones week one. The patriots are now legitimate threat to the buffalo bills in the afc east. They have a chance to really elevate their ceiling this upcoming season based on everything they did this offseason going out and bringing in hunter henry and john who smith and nelson igor and really boosting the supporting cast around their young quarterback and then going ahead and taking jones in the first round but he will take a season veteran on thursday night before everybody gets up in arms and so blue says i'll look who he was playing the fact that the eagles didn't play any of their starters. That implanting their backups. It was mostly second third and fourth string defensive players. It doesn't matter if you have the tools if you have the skill set if the after the ability to make every throw on the route tree. It doesn't matter who the opponent is now. Certainly it's going to be a tougher matchup. If you throw nelson aggo are gonna roshan ski or any of the patriots receivers against jalen ramsey or any of the top quarterbacks in this league but if you could make the throws if you can read the defense if you can go through your progressions quickly and decisively. It doesn't matter who's on the other side and there were a couple of plays really stuck out for me from mack jones. Where he would like a guy who's been in this league years who looked like a dominant high ceiling franchise quarterback if you will and i don't know that i'm ready to make that leap. But he certainly showed that has that kind of potential in that kind of ceiling really showed itself in the third quarter on a second down at seven. Jones was in the pocket. He stepped up in the pocket and he delivered an absolute strike on a rope to gun. Ocean ski on a slant pattern over the middle in between defenders and the patriots wound up moving the chains earlier in the game in the second quarter yields. Ncua harry on slammed pattern deep down the field that moves the chains on third and long situation. And you're just watching this and you're like. How is this guy a rookie. This doesn't look like a rookie quarterback starting in just his second exhibition game. And the throw that harry gave up his body for that. He dove for the end of the first half and wound up injuring his shoulder on that was forty five fifty yards downfield and it was on target and it was right where it needed to be where the defender couldn't make applied and harry had to make diving attempt to pull it now. It fell incomplete but it was a type of throw that you you kinda stand up at attention and you say okay. Why are you not starting this guy we want. This guy has the arm strength. He has the ball placement. He has the accuracy. He has the decisiveness in the pocket. He checks all the boxes and for as little as preseason matters. And i thought that serianni really showed you from an eagle's perspective on thursday night that the preseason is absolutely meaningless but if you just look at the drive charts if you just look at what mack. Jones has done through his first two appearances. Ten plays seventy yards and touchdown nine plays seventy five yards and a touchdown seventeen plays ninety one yards and a he had one that was a punt he had thirteen. Plays fifty three yards was a field goal. He had another drive. That was a pont and another possession where the patriots the ball for ten plays move forty three yards and wound up kicking a field goal. If you're going to go through that type of performance over two weeks only two putts. The rest results in putting points on the scoreboard. We touched on it a bit last week after mack jones in the patriots preseason opener against the washington football team where i thought that the word that came to mind to describe jones was efficiency. Well he took that to the next level against the eagles on thursday night. Because when you have those kinds of possessions that you're stacking gird drives on top good drives. It just goes to show you that you have command to the offense it goes to show you that you really understand the playbook. You're not making mistakes out there. You're proving that against nfl competition and even bottom of the roster nfl competition. You can move the football. And he makes all the throws he's shown that he has plus arm strength. And you can see those things regardless of who's on the other side of the football. Who ever is going defense so the jones that we saw last week and the jones that we saw on thursday night and the justin fields from the chicago bears that we saw in their preseason opener against the miami dolphins. Those are two quarterbacks at absolutely have to start week one. It doesn't matter to me that the bears went out and got andy dalton. Who has the chance to be a really nice mentor. In a veteran presence in the bears quarterback room it matter to me that the patriots went and they invested another year in cam newton and brought him back circumstances change. And if you're looking at the patriots from new england perspective having cam newton around you know he's a very serviceable backup. And we've seen quarterbacks got hurt all the time we've seen seasons get torpedoed by quarterback getting hurt. And if i'm nobel check. I i'm fully comfortable putting can new out there in a backup situation if jones should get hurt and if i'm the chicago bears and i'm ryan pace and i'm matt nagy and my future and my job. Security is tied to justin fields. I'm sorry andy dalton. I know that we brought you in here. I know that we had our social media staff tweet out. Qb one back during ta's but when you trade a future first round pick in a fifth round pick to go up and get just fields and you take him number. Ten overall and your job is very much on the line. You don't start. Andy dalton you don't hit your wagon to andy dalton and i wrote about this in my column this week go check it out on. Fan sided dot com speed into an executive in the nfc. They basically told me that there's a chance matinee looks at what happened with patrick mahomes alex smith in kansas city and says okay i can start andy dalton i can get by. I can survive on. Andy dolan as my quarterback even for a whole year. But here's the problem when andy. Reid played alex smith for a full season. He had the track record. He had been to a super bowl with the philadelphia eagles. He had been to five. Nfc championships with the philadelphia eagles. He had a very patient fan base. He had the the total respect of the ownership group. The hunt family to do what he needed to do without smith and there was a vision there and they thought that patrick mahomes wasn't ready to play as a rookie and it worked out just fine. Mahomes is arguably the greatest quarterback currently walking the planet and the chiefs are going for a third straight super bowl bid and a second super bowl title in three years. That's what they're gunning for in two thousand twenty one but matt nagy ryan pace in the bears. They don't have that they're a win or you're gone type of a situation so i i just don't think that you're going to see. The bears be patient with justin fields. I don't think you're going to see. The bears. Play andy dalton. Even if they play in week one you come back home from a road trip week one you come back home and you play the bengals at home at soldier field. Okay so you play. Justin feels and we to. What are you accomplish their if justin fields wings the job if mack jones wins the job both of these guys have looked really good in their first taste of preseason action if they win the job doing playing the veteran quarterback for a week or two players in the locker room now they see the kid gives them the chance to win. They see the kid can make every throw in the playbook they see. The kid has the command of the offense and the respect of his teammates. Whether it's just drones pile. And i think the bears you know. I don't think they're going to be a playoff team with justin field this year but that defense the top fifteen defense in the league. I think the patriots on the other hand with mack jones with the supporting cast. They've built around him with bill belichick as head coach. The patriots have a real chance of going to the postseason. Making a wildcard ron. And you know maybe splitting with the buffalo bills and putting themselves in a position to make the playoffs with nine or ten wins. I think that's a very real possibility that i don't know that you have that. Same upside with cam. Newton a quarterback. And i know it's preseason i get that and you don't wanna you know extrapolate too much from these games especially once we now have seen head coaches around the nfl. Tell you exactly what they think of. Preseason football the. It couldn't be more obvious now for years. We've always heard about how preseason games are so meaningful for guys forty five through sixty on the roster forty seven through fifty three the guys at the very bottom of the roster that these are the reps these the snaps. These preseason games are what matter this is. What's going to decide who makes the roster and who's selling used cars in a week. But i don't know the case. I mean what what. The eagles did on thursday night resting. Everybody yes they play. Jalen reiter yes. They played devante smith yes. They played their starting offensive line for about a series but outside of that it was the third and fourth string defense. You'll get the giants and joe george. They didn't play anybody in the first. Preseason game they played darius laden wide receiver almost inexplicably with the first team offense and put him out there. Meanwhile avenue ingram and sterling. Shepard are both hanging out on the side. Daniel jones was in street quotes. And you might not play against the browns on saturday night but just look at what coaches are telling you. They're telling you these. Preseason games don't matter we've always seen it with the very venerable game plans head coaches in the nfl paranoid lot to begin with but when you have the the need to game plan for a preseason game benefits scripting an amount of running plays versus passing plays. These coaches. don't even want fans at training camp if they don't need to be there because they don't want the media there who most teams don't let you film or take photos eleven on eleven periods during training camp practices. You can't tweet out. Who's with the first team offense or defense in some camps so to me. This has now become an auto complete waste of time. These preseason games have gone from four to three. We've heard so much about how it matters for bottom the roster players but even coaches aren't necessarily putting these bottom of the roster players in positions running plays that they would be running in a regular season game if they make the roster. So here's my proposal. I don't think we're really that are offered if you follow me on twitter at matt lombardo. Nfl you saw fun. Exchange with my guy. Mike tanner from football outsiders. You know. I think that we'd all be better off. And i think that head coaches around the league would agree that better way to spend the final two or three weeks of training camp leading up to the regular season would be doing away with preseason games. Altogether just have tuna three weeks of joint practices and you know teams are. This is now becoming more more you. The eagles having joined practices this week with the patriots. The jets are in green bay. Having join practices in the shadow of lambofield with the green bay packers. The giants have join practices this week with the cleveland browns. Then they go to new england to have joined pack practices with the patriots. The eagles next week have twenty practices with the jets. I it's just become the new normal. The raiders wave join practices with the rams. San francisco was having joint practices. So in a perfect world. I if i were the commissioner of the nfl. And i had the full agreement of the players association. I would do away with the preseason games coaches. Don't want to show you anything vanilla anyway. And i would have two to three weeks of joint practices because look what the eagles Going back to that example. Because that's the game that. I watched on thursday night. And we're recording this on a friday afternoon but syrian didn't play any of his starters didn't plan any of his top tier backups. But you follow some of the beat writers from the patriots and the eagles this week on social media and the eagles had the upper hand and i think that the play calling is more interesting in these open practices with joy practices with other teams. You saw lebanon. Eleven's between the giants and the cleveland browns. Where the giants pass rush had a day. It seems like against baker mayfield and one of the top offensive. Lines and football coaches are more inclined in the controlled environment of a joint practice to run the kind of plays in the kind of scripts that they would run in the regular season rather than in a preseason game. So here's what i would do. I would get rid of the preseason games. I would televise one or two of the joint practices per team so that the teams all get their local. Tv money you know maybe invite fox to one a week. Espn cbs nfl network. And you get to call and comment on the one on one drills you get to show the offensive line going up against the defensive line you get to show seven on sevens. And if everybody's worried about and coaches are worrying about what's happening in lebanon eleven's then you shoot like you do hard knocks because if you watched hard knocks over the years and if you watch the cowboy season this year. You're not seeing the alignment of the offense and the defense. You're seeing zoomed in on the quarterback field level. At the line of scrimmage. You can barely tell what's going on other than a pass that's completed the wide receiver or run up the middle. But you get right in on the action. And i think that's more compelling for the fans and i think that would be much more valuable to teams around the league so in my opinion. Do away with the preseason. Let's televise the joint practice on the other side. I'll give you my pires that i'm keeping a close eye on for the rest of this. Preseason answering your twitter questions and a whole lot more.

Welcome back and we obviously spent the first segment of the podcast. Talk about to the marquee. Young quarterbacks in this league justin fields in jones and a lot of that is because they're the guys that are getting the most playing time right now and certainly those to have the chance to make an immediate impact on their franchise. In my opinion as i said over and over again then he'd to play. They need to be out there week. One and i think the trae lance last week with the eighty yard touchdown pass. I thought that he made a nice impression. And if you had to kinda of you know. Take all of these guys situations. And i spoke to an nfl executive about this this week. That if you had to take all of their situations that feels and trae. Lance are probably in the best to positions to succeed because fields. You have the running game. You have alan robinson you have a great defense and if matt can save his job you can offensive minded head coach and there might not be better offensive minded coach in the league for young quarterback to learn from then kyle shanahan and trae vance's in maybe a better situation with far less pressure than just justin fields is because the niners have a roster. That's built to win now. You look at the nfc west into total gauntlet. Wouldn't surprise me if the niners or the seahawks or the rams or of the cardinals if cooked kingsbury learns to close and coaches the second half of the season as aggressively and as well as he did the first half. The cardinals were in the mix there. But you look at try lance. He's in a great situation because he's sitting behind jimmy garoppolo. The niners are going to stick with garoppolo as long as they're winning. But you have a great offense. You have a great scheme you have one of the three to five most dominant and physically giftedandtalented. Defenses in the entire. Nfl one of the best pass rushers that if trae lance isn't rushed to start if he hasn't thrown to the wolves before he's ready he's in an ideal position to follow that blueprint of what the chiefs did with patrick mahomes with garoppolo eventually handing the reins over to trae lance in a similar away. That alex smith did to mahomes with a similarly gifted supporting cast on both sides of the ball but beyond the rookie quarterback's beyond the young players. They're a handful of guys that are really excited to watch over the next couple of weeks leading into the regular season. And i'll just start with calvin readily and you look at what's happening. We touched on the value and the importance of joint practices throughout training camp. You saw that firsthand when the miami dolphins and the falcons got together this week really saw a glimpse of what the falcons organization and first year head coach or smith and under arthur blank. Really what they saw to give. Gm terrifying knowing the falcons confidence to trade. Julio jones to the tennessee titans because during one on one drills calvin rarely went up against saving howard one of the five most gifted cornerbacks in the league star on all thirty two teams. He's an all pro caliber corner and we just blew him. Beat him off the snap and he was gone on a go route. Beat them by five steps. Now that doesn't happen in the. Nfl doesn't happen to him. One on ones in practice that often. Either but i wanna see readily if he can put it all together in an offense also now includes kyle pets in a potential last ride for matt ryan quarterback. I wanna see calvin able to do for the rest of this. Preseason in the regular season where he is unquestionably the number one wide receiver on atlanta's offense and readily is really looking at least early on he's capable of carrying that mantle and then some mike. Parsons is another young player. Rookie on the defensive side of the ball that is having a great preseason. I can't wait to watch what he's able to do through the rest of the preseason and then in the regular season game start town for real. Here's a guy drafted number twelve overall by the dallas cowboys. Their head coach. Mike mccarthy comes out and says that he looks like he's wrecking practice. Every day seems fully capable of being the kind of player who has been at this level and comply at a high level at this level for the last several years and that's translated into the first two preseason games mike. Parsons looks the part of a starting inside linebacker. And i said it before and i'll say it again. He has to be considered the odds on favourite to be defensive rookie of the year and parsons as a kid who is instrumental and we'll play a vital role in the cowboys. Defense rebuilding this year. And if they're going to make any sort of noise in the nfc east that defense is going to have to step up. And i think a person's plays a vital role. The net and back to the quarterbacks just herber justin herbert as a kid who you watch him last year and i'm just blown away by justin herbert. And it's kinda surprising that he fell as far as date in the nfl. Draft that to attack by loa goes before him that the giants even though they have daniel jones. Take andrew thomas an offensive tackle rather than just. Herbert who know dave gettleman loved during the prior draft class. But herbert comes out and has a tremendous rookie year. But he looks every bit. The part of an elite franchise quarterback and the question for herbert becomes. Can he build on it and you watch some of the throws in practice and i know it's just practice but you see the highlight videos. Sixty yard strikes down the field hitting guys between the numbers and type windows and i'm excited. I'm excited to watch what he can do. And i really believe the with the building one. The year that he had a that justin herber can be a fringe. Mvp candidate if he builds on it again for herbert. It comes down to kenya replicate and build on your success as a rookie in the nfl. With the new head coach and a new system. We know that it worked last year with anthony lynn. We knew that it worked with the previous coaching staff. And it just comes down to whether or not joe lombardi can recapture and rekindle some of the magic. That you saw with drew brees and michael thomas throughout the years and if they can add and if herbert can build on his forty three hundred yard thirty one touchdown ten interception rookie campaign. And listen. I get it at the chargers and just in her plane. The same division. is patrick mahomes in the chiefs. But there's no reason that herber can't build on what he did as a rookie. Carry that franchise one step closer to the postseason or more than that and make those games more competitive with the chiefs. And maybe even be a threat to the chiefs going undefeated or more and sticking in the afc west. You kind of have to scratch your head a little bit. What the denver broncos did take patrick's retain now he's easily atop two or three cornerback in this class and cornerback is becoming more and more important than you. better have. Great quarterback play. If you're going to be a division with patrick mahomes and tyreek hill and justin herbert and keenan allen and derek carr and all of the weapons darren waller and everybody that they have out there in las vegas. You better have dominant cornerback play. But you passed up on justin fields. You passed up on mack jones. Both of which are looking every bit. The part of franchise quarterbacks both of which would look terrific. Throwing the ball to caja hammered court. When sutton noah thought jerry. Judy and maybe there's a chance. Patrick 'certain winds up being jalen ramsey or durell. Rivas or one of these top cornerbacks in the league. But now you're hearing about all of the drama and broncos camp you're hearing about drew lock yanked from a drill after a bad throw offense coordinator pat shurmur and you just have to wonder if for all the arms race that you need to take part in on defense to stop the chargers and certainly the chiefs. Maybe you're better off with the offense you've already put together at the skill positions and pretty good offensive line. Maybe denver would have been better off taking a mac jones or adjusted fields. Which is why. I'm really interested in. We'll be focused on patrick's ortena what he's able to do. Throughout the course of this preseason on the other side we'll get to your twitter questions about the first couple of weeks the preseason and what's to come in the two thousand twenty one. Nfl season right here on the mat. Lombardo show inside fan sided stacking the podcast. I welcome back into the map. Lombardo show without further review. Let's get right to your questions. We'll start with chris brown at chris. Underscore brown underscore. Yes do you ever prediction on the ongoing enforcement of the taunting rule. Our guys talking about it camps or they indifferent about it angry about it cetera and chris. That's a really interesting question. I think it's kind of driven the narrative of the nfl this week especially after giants owner john merrill was asked about the taunting rule being implemented and really enforced this year during his press conference this week. Here's john mara that's something. We discuss every year in the competition committee. We we get kind of sick and tired of taught in that does go on from time to time on the field tried to balance aung the sportsmanship with the players to have fun. And there's always a fine line but none of us like to see that and it's just a question whether you have rules that can be enforced without taking the fun out of the game too but nobody wants to see a player. Taunton another player. I know i certainly don't think the rest of the members we competition is really interesting here. Is it kind of shows the divide between the owners and the players because nfl players were really quick to react to mayor's comments basically for lack of a better term. put them on blast. Alvin kamara tweeted. That it was corneas. Hell shot up in play. okay. I got it. Tyron matthews said and adrian. Ammos said quote. I blame that dorn rap music. And i think that what what this really shows is how out of touch the. Nfl owners are with their players. How wide the divide is there and how out of touch. They are with the fans of the product because listen. I don't think anybody wants to see a guy. Get in the other guy's face after a pass break up in the end zone and the super bowl. I don't think anybody wants to see anybody. Stand over a quarterback after a sack and point and yell on his face and all of those things but the way that it's being enforced in the preseason. We colts running back. Benny lemay basically drag the entire panthers. Defense seven or eight yards nine yards down the field and he kinda got up and and shrugged his shoulders. Flex auto bitney drew flag. Nobody wants to see that because it shouldn't be a penalty thrown for celebration. It should be a flag. That's thrown for those outrageous incidences of taunting that we talked about it. Even that i think is too much interpretation. So i think chris that players are going to be outraged by this and i think that fans are going to be annoyed by it and it's just another issue and another example of the nfl becoming the no fun league and it's going to turn off some fans now. Don't get me wrong here. Fans aren't going to turn off the league and stop watching football. Because they're not allowed to point. But i think that fans are gonna be annoyed by this so they could take some of the passion and some of the excitement out of the games and i kind of agree with the players here. That unless you're going to throw a flag for every celebration then you're leaving it in the hands and in the eyes and in the interpretation of a referee to decide what twenty years and. i think. That's a really blurry. Line to try to enforce actually question. Chris appreciate your next up. Andy burrows asks. How far can this washington football team go this season. I kind of like washington. I love what they've done in their front seven. We touched on it last week. I think the chase yang is a fringe defensive player of the year candidate and a guy based on what he did as a rookie. And what he's shown so far through training camp and the preseason who has a real potential to be a double digit sack guy. This year in his second fell season. And that offense. You have terry mccaren. Who's a top eight or nine wide receiver in the league. Really like antonio gibson. He's a swiss army knife of running back. Really tile guy who can get you close to eight hundred to one thousand yards on the ground three or four hundred five hundred yards through the air so there are a lot of weapons there and you drop in. A veteran established quarterback ryan fitzpatrick at this stage of his career. Isn't a franchise quarterback but he can be an alex smith level game manager. He can be a kirk cousins type of quarterback in that offense which with that defense in that division at nyc. Look the dallas cowboys. Have one of the more explosive supporting cast in the league. I think the giants have a lot of question. Marks from daniel jones on down in the eagles are probably two or so years away from being in a position to compete for the nfc east. So you might not need anything. More than an alex smith or kirk cousins type of quarterback performance from ryan fitzpatrick to win nine or ten games. And i've said it before. I've written about it before. I really believe the nfc east. This year won't be anything near the laughing stock that it was a year ago in a seventeen game season. I think it is very much an legitimately arrays to ten or eleven wins between the cowboys washington and the giants and washington's right in that mix. Now they're not a team that i'm gonna put in the same conversation as the green bay packers the tampa bay buccaneers. So i think our head and shoulders above the rest of the conference. And i think they're the to odds on favorites to go to the nfc championship game. I'd put the los angeles rams in that conversation. And maybe the san francisco forty niners but washington's in that very next year there in that next year of teams with the cowboys with the arizona cardinals with the new orleans saints. If they can figure out their quarterback situation stay healthy. They're one of those second tier competitors in contenders in the nfc. And i think that's a really bad spot to be for a coach a team. That's coach as well. As ron rivera. Coaches that franchise comes from at bb underscored chargers. That's bolt beat fan sides. Los angeles chargers page and they ask. Okay matt talk us out of austin echo or being a top three fantasy running back. And i love the optimism and i think that the chargers or a team to watch in the afc west and especially of justin herber makes another staff as we touched on earlier in his career. This is a team that can push for eight. Nine ten wins. They can be in the mix they can be a wildcard team and there are some real weapons on that chargers offense. I mean you start talking about guys like keenan allen you talk about guys like mike williams. There are proven receiving options. They are and ecuador. Is i really potentially dynamic running back but there's only one football jared cook is another option. The passing game and i think that ecuador is one of these guys from a fantasy perspective fringe. Top ten is certainly top. Fifteen running back but top three is kind of silly guys. Get the optimism. I love fandom. But you're talking about the top three running backs in the league in terms of fantasy production you have to start with derrick henry. Who's going to be a guy who pushes for the russian title every year. Especially now in that offense. Dalvin cook is in that conversation. A healthy christian. Mccaffrey healthy alvin. Kamara healthy saquon barkley. I would take all of those guys over austin Sanders is guy. Probably take over austin headquarters end. Antonio gibson is probably a guy at throwing that makes them. We haven't even talked about ezekiel elliott. Who is probably a top three or four running back in this league running behind the best offensive line football and you have the browns duo. Maybe the most dynamic duo of running backs in the in. Nick chub and kareem hunt so again i i love the fact. They're excited about austin neck. Or he's a really fascinating young player but he's probably closer to being a top ten or top fifteen running back in terms of fantasy but i think he means a lot more to the chargers individual successes team than that. So that's gonna wrap it up. I'm looking forward to all of the games this weekend looking ahead to next weekend's preseason games and then that's it it's fifty three man roster time it's kick off of the regular season on september nine.

I actually did the post game with verte. Ram and patrick alan. After the laws we hopped on right as the game ended hearing a chief's talking about achieves loss with a guy with a brooklyn accent. Verte rams just fantastic. Just when he goes on his rants. You're you're just really get into it. It was great. I loved it. I i very much enjoyed hearing negative chiefs talk with a brooklyn new york accent. It was it was great. But before we get into all the chiefs talk because there is so much to unpack so much to get into. I've a lot of thoughts on chris jones. A lot of thoughts about byron brindled de-robed thoughts on clyde edwards hilar- first draft picks india. Read before that. Though i do wanna say if you have a cube problem go to manscaping dot com fan. Cited twenty is the code for free shipping and twenty percent off. They gotta light. Led lights on this bad boy.

Landscaped dot com fan cited twenty at checkout twenty percents off free shipping the lawnmower four point. Oh all right. Matt i want to start in a more untraditional route here. I wanna start with chris jones before we get into any other issue. Because i'm not necessarily worried as far as the big picture that she is still going to go. Thirteen fourteen in three thirteen and four. I'm not worried what i am. A little bit worried about is chris jones at d. And this was the reason why i was a little nervous. Going into the season he played at the end. He's so used to just bowl. rushing quarterback right. Will you put them here. You play team. Who's very good at running. And he looks lost they just neutralizing the ravens took the chiefs best defensive player out of the game and if he was the interior they wouldn't be able to do that him playing edge. They were so big picture. I'm not worried. But it does. Is this a microcosm of potential bigger issue. I think what we're looking at is the quandary of this experiments on the frontline right. I mean if you've got a guy who needs reps outside to play better outside then they're doing the right thing and maybe that's what they're doing. Hey look we gotta get them. Used to plan outside. It only really matters toward the end of the season if he can be a complete edge rusher and said the edge against the run if he can get his instincts to come out and he's not having to like if he's not having to like think about it and then react because by that time it's too late to catch lamar jackson. There's probably too late because lamar anyway. But you have to have that sort of instinctual player automatically going with it and he's learning this new position so there's that intellectual thought process before the instinctual process. Which is the difference between winning and losing football. So in this instance. I think you know. I i in my head. I'm wondering okay. Well i guess she's really committed to this experiment and making it work. That said i mean it makes no sense to leave a guy out there like that In a like this. I mean that was the difference between winning and losing is. I mean if you stop lamar. One time. the game turns out differently. but you know it was. It was like watching the browns early on when they had their game plan and they were just working to execution. It was like a knife through. It was a hot knife through through butter melting. And so as good as chris jones is. It's gonna take any player. Lamar jackson makes elite players. Look silly and so even a guy like that you just having to think too much out there and So you have to the this whole experiment thing just feels weird to me because we're also not seeing the push inside from jarran reed and real anyone warton derek. Nah i mean. I'm looking for anyone to do something along that line and it's like well hell let's give up on the contest and the least or the you know the experiment at least put jones back inside where we know what he can do and then we can figure out the rest later so i'm not ready to completely give up on the jones edge project yet again. Two games one game he completely dominated. And what's the difference maker in the chiefs winning against the browns other one. He was horrible and again. I think chris jones like we said i'm not necessarily blaming him. He's put in a very tough. Playing one of the most difficult complex running teams in the nfl with the fastest quarterback in the mark jackson is going to take time. It's a learning growing process. You've just seen it. Would it potentially can cost you the game. But it's not all on chris jones. Frank clark had one good play then was nowhere to be seen jaren radio. Everyone kept saying. You're supposed to be amazing. Run stopper right to tackles. They ran the ball. How many times and he gets to tackles as a whole defensive line has been a. It was an unmitigated disaster cerain. Petro of sports radio eight ten looked at the numbers. The twenty twenty five percent of the chief salary cap is spent on the defensive line. Twenty-five percent in this is what you get these other returns. Alex okafor who's been the nfl for about a decade. Looked like he had no idea where to be. Just it was frustrating. When nick bolton i. We're going linebacker now. When nick bolton looks like the best tackler on your team and he's a second round rookie. That's not ideal at. That's not what you want fun fact and then where was one thornhill you notice one thornhill half naked pictures of spags. Why is dan sorenson. Plane one hundred percent of the snaps again. Dan sorenson made a couple of nights place. But that is not offset. The litany of other miscues that he had in his game whereas one thornhill eleven snaps. Eleven snaps i mean. Mark andrews is burning. Dan sorenson. I get a lot of safeties. We'll get burned by mark andrews but why not put your athletic safety on mark andrews. See what happens. I i was just very frustrated. With the whole game plan. You built your entire devon's of roster around plane man defense and he plays zone the entire time like you're not putting your players in the best position to succeed. I have a lot of questions about the defensive game. Plan the production. What happened in this game. Yeah yeah. I'm i'm with you on a lot of that. I'm with you on you know. I don't wanna get mad at players for not being able to live up to scenarios in which they were never going to succeed. So that's been neiman. And a lot of instances that's day insurance center and a lot of instances even chris jones on the outside on a learning curve in these instances. So i also. Don't i also don't want to overreact. I mean you're right. They some things are on fire. I don't understand the absence of thornhill. I don't understand why we're not trying Like darius harris instead of been neiman At times was with some of this. I don't understand de'andre baker being a healthy scratch I don't even understand going with oakland. Four over josh canedo because at this point over four seems like you know. Maybe he's just kinda hit the law. I mean the his ceiling keeps getting lower and so does the floor with age. And at this point if we're going to experiment and guys grow like like jones outside then let's do the same with canedo as a fourth round. Pick so some of those things. I have some real concerns with at the same time we knew the front end of the schedule was gonna be the gauntlet right. Yeah these guys are contenders contenders dude contenders content. That's what they do. They put up a fight. We're gonna make it hard. Th- they're they're going to be hard to get through. And i think most of us would have been fine. If we knew the chief. We're gonna go. Let's say three and one in the first month right before the season if they went three of their first four. We're gonna feel pretty good. If they went for the first five which includes the buffalo bills will feel elated but even three the first four three the first floor. We'd be fine so that does mean we probably would have been theoretically okay with the loss to the browns or a loss to the ravens. You know whatever maybe a divisional contest with the charters. Whatever that is it's heartbreaking. Because they lost it in such you know like horrible fashion. You know the game was there. It was on the line. They were up by so many that all fell apart. They were the browns from a week ago like the script completely flipped and they were living out exactly what they did to the browns the previous week so i think there's a lot of learning here to take home andy. Reid said that in comments after the game and today saying we're gonna learn from this but at the same time. I also wanna keep it in perspective and go he looked. They are playing playoff teams. Every team treats them like the super bowl. This is what we expected on the front end of the schedule. It's gotta be hard. I one hundred percent agree and it's not all doom and gloom again. I just wanna see what the trend has been and leading teams. Run all over you. Not seeing any improvements in areas where you spent a lot of capital the offense align they were fantastic and pass protection of patrick. They're very very good again. Though clyde going for what thirteen carries forty six yards. Not building a lot of holes for him you know. It's not like you see the ravens over there. They're putting forth string dudes back there. Devante freeman coming off the street and bust enough at thirty one yarder just like kansas city. Come on you spend all this capital over here in the ravens are just banged up on the offensive line and they have fostering running backs and they're still ripping off yards. Sometimes you just want to see some sort of growth in areas that we knew needed needed the growth. I do want to say some positives though. They kept saying what's going to happen. When teams double team. Where are they going gonna go. Mccoll harmon stepped up to mortgage robinson. Stepped up byron. Pringle stepped up byron. Pringle that play. I was like wow. I didn't know that speed was in there. Two things i notre mccoll and d. rob member. Wendy rob that ball week. One against the browns and evans said just go forward. What are you doing go you. You might be able to pick up the first war of the first things mccullough dear update when they cut the ball ran straightforward. No scuttling around went straightforward. I thought that was big. Honestly the the improvements in growth of the third fourth fifth wide receivers on this team. I thought was big. Yeah you're absolutely right and you know people were talking about especially pringle you know. Look if you give them a chance he has. He has a real opportunity. And you know he's he's certainly showed that if you have a guy who has that kind of speed and could be that dangerous like You know getting the ball in stride. We know we know. Michael hartmann can do that. Tyreek certainly can do that. If the chiefs have a third guy who can do that. It's going to be trouble and you know we're not even talking about. I mean that touchdown run by travis. Cal. i mean that that was other-worldly wasn't graceful rhino. Thinking we get that just stick. I feel like graceful. Rhino is an outstanding nickname. For travis kelsey and by the way did you say travis kelce. I've like i needed to stop you there. Did you say travis. I'm trying to respect the fact that there are multiple ways to pronounce it. And maybe maybe. I'm i'm on the inside and got have the real real version. I don't know i did. I did. I didn't say a purposely hoping it would be like the right way to say it now. These corrected everyone would then. I think jason is brother. Came out and was like dude. No no-one no-one said that about us. I'm gonna call him travis kalki and then i'll be the only one who pronounces his outlet i. I'm saying graceful. Unicor graceful rhino. It's still there man unlimited get Hey you're listening to the arrowhead at podcast. We're gonna take a real short break. We'll come back. I wanna talk clyde edwards allaire and where he goes from here. Welcome back to the airline addict podcast. My name is matt conner. Sterling homes is on the other side of this sterling. Let's talk clyde. Because i just i want to send it up and i want you to take it from here. If you're quite busy layer you started your career with the microscope of being a first round pick and hearing all detractors saying why would you ever take a first round back Especially for the team. That rarely has a first round. Pick in the first place then. The first the first year really doesn't go that well when we've become like used to like kareem hunt kind of break out. And then now here comes another three points something yards per carry average to start the season and then the fumble like is there any chance that clyde can pick up his reputation for here and have what everyone would say is a successful. She's career i mean or or do you feel like he's yeah what's your take on all that by detractors. I know you mean me. But i mean you know he can still have a very successful career i again. He's very early into his young. Nfl career so no. The book is not written on clyde edwards hilar- my main thing and again. It's obviously a sunk cost now. So i understand but drafting a running back in the first round to me. I can never get behind. I can't do it pain running backs an obscene amount of money. I can't get behind. Look at zeke elliott. tony pollard. Is better than zeke elliott. Right chris mccaffrey. First year to send in a massive contract. What happens gets hurt. Saquon barkley same thing member. At the chargers when melvin gordon was all that yeah austin. Edward came in bumped him out. It's like arrested development when it was like has ever worked with any of these guys know and they always delude themselves into thing is going to work but it might work for us and this is nothing necessarily clyde himself and i do think he's going to be a fine running back but a first round tender on him is asinine first off. Kansas city doesn't use him in put him in the best accession to succeed because first off his best trait pass catching zero zero catches last game. No target hero targets. I mean seriously like that's now putting clyde in the best spot to succeed he is. That was what made the first round pick. Palatable was supposed to be so good in the past game supposed to be allah. Alvin kamara christian. Mccaffrey austin heckler but no none of that. We haven't seen it and so the book still out you revamp your offensive line. You revamp it and then you go for three point five yards per carry again. I can't put us all on clyde. Because i've been i gotta stay true to myself i say often to line is typically the best indicator of how the run game going to going to play out right so i can't be fair to put it all on clyde but i will say there is some holes. He didn't get through them. I don't know if it's accelerations now. Fast i don't know feet is goes down First time gets touched but the box is not stacked. It's not like you're back there. With who pick andy dolan. Your quarterback is patrick mahomes. They're playing deep. They're doubling tyreek. What's this easy to gain five yards a carry right. You example achieves no the ravens are going to run it and they still went for six and a half yards per carry now if that was the case had eight dudes in the box against clyde every single time. I'd say yeah three point. Six three point five. Sure i i guess i could understand it but it's not. I'm just very frustrated with the lack of success with the run game as a whole i. I'm confused on his lack of usage in the past game. I want to see more jerick. Mckinnon and i think this is a pretty interesting question is if clyde went down with achieves be okay with their win. Total change at all if daryl williams juerg mccain. We're we're now thrust into that role. I said the wind will be the exact same. And that's why you don't use a first round draft pick on a running back again. Sunk cost. I want the best for clyde the book still out. I'm not saying he's terrible. I think he's a pretty solid and if a player. But i have a lot of questions. Yeah i think the best is potentially yet to come. But here's where i'm worried. I hope so i'm work. I'm worried about the mental side. Here right i'm worried about what it's like for a young player to know you gave the game away. You know you and other people will try to will try to say it was just one play. There were many plays there are people who will you know. Like people will kind of help him get up off the mat so to speak but the reality is he's gonna live with us for a week and has had knowing that the cheese could be undefeated still could could have had a big win over division rival now the ravens are kinda supercharged and their own competence etc And it's not. It's this isn't the first time he's been kicked so to speak by keeps by cheese kingdom when he's down so i wonder you know a big part of this game is the mental side. It's the ability to move on past mistakes. We've seen a takeout quarterback with the best raw talent who just couldn't put together the pro level. It's gotta be true somewhat at the running back position if he's thinking too much and again not instinctual. I'm just worried about what the mental side of this is gonna mean. And i'm hopeful that the chief's immediate community around him fans included but especially coaches players support. Staff can really help him move on and sort of gain that like channel energy in a right way to put a chip on his shoulder to show what he can do versus to sink under the weight of all of these like expectations. That have not yet been made. Sure and i one hundred. They're not completely fair to blame. All this on clyde and i'm with you. This was the one thing you can point to the same thing with the whole d- ford off side right. That's the so many other opportunities are the game. But that was the one final deciding factor. You can point to and say you know what that was that. Was it kind of same thing here. There's a lot of other. The defense doesn't get absolutely torched the entire game right. Maybe it patrick doesn't throw an interception. Which again as a whole another story. Because i think it's unfair to expect patrick. Mahomes to legitimately perfect every single time. It goes out there but there are obviously other things you can point to to say you know what collide this wasn't your fault and i think that chiefs Especially players will do this because they've all been there everything player if you've been in the nfl or you played football long enough. You've been the guy who's made a mistake. Probably cost your team right. It's happened. So clyde will pick himself up. I don't think we're gonna see leshan mccoy situation where we're he's in the andy reid doghouse for a long time. I expect the first play of the game Against the chargers probably be a run. Play to to clyde right. I think we probably. That's that. seems like it's going to happen but we do need to see some accountability because in that situation the only thing that could possibly hurt you was a fumble not having to hand the ball. If it wasn't a weird play where you know a dude helmet hits the ball and pops out right you gotta you gotta wrap up in that situation. It was just a it was weird. Yeah like he didn't know the situational awareness of what was going on. And you know the play call. I'll be the first amid i. I my opinion. You have the best player best quarterback in the entire tire world. Don't take the ball out of his hands. What did john harpo do on that. Fourth and one. Hey lemar you wanna go for it. Lamar said yes in that situation. Give the ball to patrick. Let him do what he does. Best he is the best player in the nfl. I don't want the game decided. By clyde i wanted to sign up by patrick. I don't wanna get too conservative situation. I understand you want to run the clock out. You wanna make the ravens use that time out but you're not the ravens you've not proven you can run the ball at all if you're gonna do this. Which by the way wouldn't a two yard loss anyways freaking meal it i get it. I'm overreacting over-reacting. This is being. There's a hyperbole. Don't actually kneel in that situation but do something else. Get him in. Space swing. Pass plated travis. Kelsey who's been unconscious the entire game but amazing. Yeah so many other ways to get the ball to your playmakers in space. Besides doing the one thing you've tried thirteen times had been unsuccessful at. Yeah yeah i'm i'm i'm i'm i'm i guess i'm with you on that i i understand the other side though you know like we brought in molars the line now has mahler's you have trey smith you have orlando brown junior. You've got joe tuni. I mean you've got guys who bring their lunch pail along with like the biggest frames we'd had on that line in a long time. You should be able to grind this out you. Should you invest in the first round. Pick in a running back and now you've got the giants on the line. You should be able to like all right. Hey let's just play it safe. Let's keep it on the ground. Let's earn a few more yards. Let's set up hair. Some bucker fine. That should be as easy as one two three. It should be as easy as saying for these guys and it wasn't and it wasn't in a of the game so you know i get what you're saying around the best player keeping his hands all that kind of thing. I also see the other side. Where hey we got these guys for exactly this kind of moment or along the goal line in the end zone and it didn't work out this time so you know. Hey mistakes happen. I get it. I just hate that. They happen to a guy who just has continually heard. You're not living up to the banner that's been placed over. You know i agree. There's been a lot of unfair expert. His fault he was drafted in the first round. Right is not his fault. He was drafted in the first round. He said in the first segment. It's not necessarily dan sorensen's fault he's on the field of one hundred time going up against mark andrews at that coaching. I mean he was brought in to be a third safety stillness russia to be a third safety and they're asked him to be a bona fide. One hundred percent play type of guy. That's not him. So i am with you. It's not on clyde but it's still just is a very frustrating situation as man i again. I don't want. I don't like being a prisoner of the moment because i if feels like i'm being so negative and so like an angry old man yells at cloud and then we're gonna end up seeing the chiefs win the super bowl you know. And it's gonna we're gonna it's gonna be a blip on the radar right. But i just wanna see something shored up because i don't want this minor minute week to to turn into a issue in week fifteen sixteen and in the playoffs. I want to say something kind of funny. Ravens fans and the ravens themselves are acting like they just won the super bowl. Is this week to. We're seeing lamar jackson backflip into the zone. We're a fan. Get a tattoo of score on his. Thi- dude it's week to get. It doesn't affect me. I understand this. But i'm still just like what's this seems a little bit of a stretch of you. Have you consider yourself a You know super bowl contender or one of the best teams. They have see. That doesn't feel like you have a lot of confidence. I i don't know i. It's just weird to me. That their act like this is like the raiders last year when they took their victory lap around arrowhead. Yeah i know. I think we lose sight of just what it means to beat a team like the chiefs because we root for that. She's so it's it's like You know it it. Like like we are the death star. We don't know what it's like to go up against the death star right. And and i think last year i made fun of the raiders for their victory lap. But this year. I mean i mean the tattoo thing was really funny. And if you haven't seen it we even have an article about it up on era addicts too. You know showcase this guy getting a tattoo the final score but Here's but i just watched the locker room scene after the game sterling. Have you seen this. I have not okay. So john harbaugh in so many words. He's he's with his guys in the locker room and it's pretty long. It's like two minutes of footage from the locker room and harbaugh is ecstatic and and says this is verbatim. But he says something along the lines of fellas. This is the biggest win. We've had here in a in a very very long time. Or maybe ever. I mean it was. It was like it was like even a coach as accomplished and as stable and consistent as a john harbaugh was beside himself. The level of effort You know the ravens her going into last week that they were gonna be oh and to. I mean it was almost like they shouldn't even play the game with all the injuries they had with the with the way the chiefs had owned them with the momentum that the chiefs themselves had and you know then they were able then. The game was so dramatic. I mean that was the best game. I've watched the rams chief's game you know in primetime You know from a couple of years ago. In terms of the ping pong back and forth so like they were ecstatic. Lamar was ecstatic. The whole team was ecstatic. And so there was this sense of. Oh you know instead of like being down on a team for acting like they won the super bowl. Maybe this is what this is like. And maybe i would feel that way too. If i wasn't rooting for the death star. And and then i realized gosh this every team is trying to do every week. Like it's like it's v game. they're gonna remember forever until their kids like every single player And so the ravens pulled it off man so it shows you just like andy reed says. Look it's difficult to win. We two week in the nfl. And i think. I'm getting a better understanding an appreciation of that. Yeah and i get it. Because for lamar jackson especially this was the monkey. Finally getting off your back right. Everyone kept saying can't do it. He can't do this. And i don't have an issue with him flipping into the end zone. Just how. I don't have an issue entirely kill blows by a dude. Those the deuces the peace sign. Nfl and taunting was under a lot of scrutiny. Is past weekend. It was brutal. I don't think the refs know what taunton is. I don't think they've been told exactly what is going on. So in fokker yelling at lamar you know. Maybe he should get a penalty. No i don't. I don't want that. I want the players to have fun i want. I don't want the no fun league right. You watch football to also be entertained. The players are not robots through human beings. Tell me you hit a good shot and golf. Do something against one of your friends and you don't just trash talk them right. This is on the biggest stage with millions of dollars on the lines adrenaline pumping through your veins. I have no issue with guys getting hyped. So you know what i'm with you matt although i would not get a tattoo couldn't do it. I was kinda hoping we can make a secret pact after the show And just not go public with it. But i guess you're out What what tattoo we get in what are you. I could be swayed by the final score of the chargers game. No matter what happens. Hey i wanna talk one more thing Can we talk patrick. Mahomes for a second. Of course begin. Do we're talking. Sheaves football of course batter knows. Because here's the thing. No one is talking about. Patrick mahomes and everyone should be talking about patrick. Mahomes i i I saw a couple of people today. Say hey if. I was voting for mvp today. Which is silly by the way but they were saying number one would be like derek carr. Tom brady was up there. You know a couple of people like no one's talking about my homes. And so but i'm looking at my home stat and then it's two games small sample size. I get it. The patrick mahomes is playing on a level. He's never played before and yet patrick mahomes as other seasons are on a level that no one's ever seen before but like like let me just say this mahomes completing like seventy six percent of his passes and his career-best is sixty six percent so that's that's ten percent more than normal last year. He led the nfl with three hundred sixteen yards per game. He's averaging twenty six year or twenty four more yards than that but he's averaging three forty this year he's averaging ten. This is crazy. Ten point seven five net yards per attempt over. I now per an attempt. He's never even done above nine before but now he's almost into eleven in terms of those metrics. That's insane. Patrick is throwing more accurately and deeper than ever before. He's on pace. He only plays sixteen games and sits out the seventeen. He's gonna be forty eight touchdowns against only six interceptions. I mean this is a guy who is. He's taken his game to another level and the line in front of him is only going to get better. The chiefs only going to acquire probably some more offensive at the deadline if they so choose like like mahomes has cranked up his game. And no one is noticing. And i'm just thinking if the nfl's best overall player can improve game at this level like like we all should be talking about it. And we're not and i just to talk about it. no. I love that. You brought that up. I think the offensive line has been a huge help for the past block. I mean again. They haven't been great. You know run game run blocking the but pass blocking has been a noticeable improvement especially in the interior. Patrick has had a lot of time. Been under duress much fewer times. Giving patrick time is a death sentence. he'll just pick you apart. And that's what he's done like you said he's completing all these passes also ten point. Seven five yards was at ten point seven yards per attempt. That is asinine again. Why run the ball. When you when you're doing that it's literally unbelievable. What patrick mahomes is. Doing it's incredible scene because every time you think there's no way he can get better. He somehow gets better. It's been impressive to watch. You have to just nitpick like that interceptions you through horrible right bad interception. But how many times have we seen him in a very similar scenario pull something out of his ass like it's crazy you'll you'll live with that thirty twenty five out of twenty six times you're going. Oh my gosh. I have never seen anything like this before. And then he does that and like all right. You'll live with that. He was incredible. Yeah it's incredible you watched chiefs games right and then you watch mahomes and what he does and then you watch say the jets basically any other team outside of maybe a couple and you go. This is what you have watch on sundays. This is horrible watching this. This is just depressing. You hope you win like seventeen to thirteen. The it really is something and i i. I'm just so every week. I feel like i tweet the same thing during the game just like i post a weekly reminder. Don't forget just so we all know. We're all watching hall of fame talents and their prime. Let's just never forget that. I just want to never lose sight of that hall of fame talents in their prime. Final thoughts from matt conner. My final thought is graceful. Rhino should be travis kelsey nickname. If you guys like this you guys so much for listening and leave us a review. We're every listener podcast and we would really really appreciate that for matt conner. Im sterling homes. Checkout matt verte ram and patrick. They'll be dropping more cheese. Podcast this we go to air hood addict dot com to get all of your chiefs news. We are out. It'd be awesome powell. The line is really long. We'll meet up later. How long will you wait as long as it takes so you guys are only going to do this. One ride all day will be that long. Probably get food way are they. cutting caleb. food is so far away. Should i say something. Hey there's a line here it's like twenty people in line for twenty people this is bullsh- don't go there. Go a real vacation go are being.

The red cross respond to and help people recover from this disaster. Of course all of our thoughts are with all of our friends in the new orleans area and everyone impacted by all this down there with that. We welcome you back to another hour of get up. I'm greenie we come to you. Live as always from the heineken. River appears seventeen and we have quite a squad together today to talk about the being stories and football. Let's go we're getting up with big mac. The job is he is the future is now. His legendary coach has exploiting the decision. And you will hear from bill right off the top. Then sneaky. Big and bad news from green bay. That could be the beginning of the end of a iran. Don't miss it in this hour. Plus it is eight days to showtime once and for all is really ready for opening night. You will hear the biggest concern as we get up in this hour starting right now within the last half hour or so for the first time. Bill belichick explained his decisions of yesterday to cut cam. Newton and named mack jones as a starting quarterback here was built talking about the rookie. Feel like he's been able to show an ability to do things the way we want done. at a productive level. So he's young she'll continue to learn and grow our that that goes up. That's all we drafted on that. He's come in performed at a level that supports that bill. Why was releasing cam in the best interest in team. Well that's artist A main we've had you know weeks of meetings on all players so it'd be impossible to rehash everything that happened at that position. Position but ultimately has a lot of factors that are involved in and they made Did camps vaccination status have anything to do with him being released. No nothing me look at you guys keep talking about that and i would just point out that i don't know what the number is. I mean you guys can look it up. You have the access to a lot of information. But the number of players and coaches and staff members that have been affected by cohen in training camp who have been vaccinated is a pretty high number. So i wouldn't lose sight of that so that's one of the things that bill belichick had to say. Today mike greece was the one who asked that question and he joins us now covers the patriots for us so well. So let's get to the decision here. Mike what have we learned about. How and why mack. Jones won this job greenie. That's one point. I would highlight. Mac won the job more than cam. Newton lost it and this goes back to the spring talking to people around the team. They wanted to throw everything at mac and he basically passed every test. They wanted to see if he would buckle under pressure and he didn't and a key point. Here is how mac responded to mistakes. He made mistakes but offensive coordinator. Josh mcdaniels said he seldom made the same mistake twice and what that allowed the team to do. Greenie was build. It's offense throughout training camp to the point where they felt really good about what it looked like when he was at the controls one practice last week. I had someone on the team. Tell me you know the giants were here. And they were almost looking at their faces. Saying wait a minute. I thought tom brady had left years ago. That's how it advanced to a solid point with mac jones at quarterback. It's remarkable you. Say that tabor's he literally just use the phrase error repeaters a little earlier in the show. That bill does not like players who make mistakes multiple times and he didn't do that so the idea that this would be the quarterback that did not surprise a lot of people yesterday. We could see jones the idea that they released cam. Newton did surprise a lot of people. What do we know about why they made that decision. So my understanding here greenie is that they just wanted to set up a clear path for mac so he wasn't looking over his shoulder and seeing a former. Nfl mvp with a big personality. And there's probably also something to be said for clarity of message from bill belichick to the team. And i and i could relate a story back when teddy was here with the patriots when tom brady. Went down with a torn. Acl in two thousand and eight. There was all talk about. What would the patriots do at quarterback. Would they bring someone in. And bill got up and said matt castle is our guy and it was a clear message to everyone in the locker room. And i think that's part of what's happening here with mack. Jones and why. Kim is in here. That's extremely well done micro always such great work. Thank you so much and we'll certainly keep you close by because that's a fascinating situation. Let me bring teddy back in for those who are just joining us. Tedy bruschi patriot. Legend is with us. All morning and dan are laskey. Gets up with us this morning as well. I was gonna start with you. Dan but but teddy let me just get a quick thought on that is is that idea that that his explanation of why they would release cam dates back to something that you would have been a member of the team for. What did you think of when you heard mike say that. You're talking about like cambian released in in going with your backup quarterback. I mean essentially basically. Mike was saying that back. When tom brady got hurt bill. Belichick said we're not bringing anybody else in we are. We are all in castle. And that's it and you know. We rallied around castle. But we much rather would have rather had tom but still rallied around who. You're still did okay. I think we went eleven and five that year. But tom brady would have been a much better option but This thing let me just let me light on. Basically how that all started in terms of the whole air repeater thing and mack jones continuing to show progress throughout whatever meetings practices pre-season games the term. Air repeater when you make when you make a mistake. Okay in that locker room with the staff with all good staff. They're going to make sure you have it so say you're in a meeting room. Okay and you say okay. You did this. This was the wrong. This is wrong read. This is what's supposed to happen. They looked at the player. And that player says okay coach. got it. this coach doesn't trust. I got it so they have to show you the same. Look maybe two more times and you have to get it right before you can move on. So mcadoo showed that he made mistakes. They showed it to him again. He corrected it and then they move onto the next layer. And that's what gave them confidence to go with. Mac over cam the continuing process and fixing the mistakes that he was tested on over and over again. And that's why the match jones areas beginning in new england fascinating. All right. danny. The floor is yours. What all of this. I've not spoken to you since this news came yesterday we heard from check. What are the most important things in your mind. You know where. I stand was the better quarterback today or yesterday and that going to be better quarterback in three months. I think he's going to be very good. New england the question now becomes. What does this offense look like. Because it's going to be a different offense than what we saw in new england last year. I think there's going to be three core values for their offense number one. It is going to be a smash mel bloodier nose run right at hugh physical run game. This will be a top five offensive line in a top run game in the nfl number two. It's going to be built upon the play action pass. And when i say that. I don't want people at home to the san francisco forty nine or cleveland. Browns green bay packer plex pass. Which is like this horizontal stretch. This is going to be that vertical cell vertical accu stretch with that run game. This is an offense. Two years ago that was top. Ten in play action pass chunk throws explosive plays. They were bad last year. So it's going to be built upon that and then three. It's going to be mac. At the line of scrimmage matchup based all that talent that they went and acquired he's going to be able to cancel out all these progressions because he's so smart given what the defense is going to give them and then play really good football now. If that sounds a lot like the offense that tom brady ran for twenty years. It's because it is. It'll look just like that. The last thing i'll say is this people always say the best thing you can give. A young quarterback is a good run game. I don't believe in that the best thing you can give. A young quarterback is a really good offensive line in a great play caller. You know what new in new england has a really good offensive line and a great play caller mack jones. We'll play very well in new england. Go ahead teddy coming off of that with lasky. Just said i mean if i were to give you two names to be excited about in this offense of course the running game and the young running backs but i think james whites this year and john. Ooh smith okay signing him. He is going to be someone that they are going to utilize and he catches the baugh and he is one of the toughest tackles in the excited to see. John smith what he can do. Danny it is very dangerous to invoke the name. Tom brady particularly in this case. Because everyone understands the history here and people will suggest that that if i just by asking the question i'm saying is mack jones going to be as good as tom brady. No one is suggesting that. But it's inescapable that just when we watch these clips there if you just put the twelve on him. Instead of the ten it would be very hard sometimes to the difference. Is it going to look like what we have seen. All these years very very much so grief go take take your mind back to that. Last preseason game in the scene throw to siasi you you watch the play get broken down. I broke it down yesterday and this morning. And you watch the motion go and mack. Jones goes wait okay. It's man you see him. Go to the top of his helmet. We've seen tom brady that alert right. He's communicating and then he points out to golf insulin. Hey you guys go go block linebacker. Because i think he's going to pressure. We've seen tom brady do that. A thousand times and then he throws the ball that you know it's not overly impressive looking throw but it's the perfect this one right here like the perfect throws that's a play action. Pass job the perfect. Throw and you go. That looks just like tom brady. That's not a bad thing. The reality is he's going to be compared to tom. He's going be expected to play like tom. Maybe not the end result when it comes to the championships but they're so much similarities on the field. Mannerisms communication expectation and then off the field with the maniacal preparation that it's not a bad thing that we're comparing mack jones. The tom brady. It's a difficult mountain to climb but it's a good thing that we're going wait. This kid looks a lot like a guy that we watched play in this situation really well for a long time. It's inescapable right. that's gonna go ahead and teddy unavoidable and was instrumental to his success that he focused on focuses on all those things. Orlowski is talking about a handful of players. Like a slater like hightower like a mccourty like those guys they take all the leadership responsibilities off of him because he doesn't need her about having keep guys in line. As long as mac knows that. You're and i got these guys that have won championships. That have been all pro. That have been the pro bowl. Is that i'm just gonna let guys police let you guys handle all this and let me do my job and do the best. I can do it well. That's how mac is going to have the right mentality knowing that he doesn't have that pressure because there are a lot of great leaders on the team. Well how would you describe the pressure that is on him teddy. You were telling me in our meeting this morning. The entire region of new england is going crazy. And it's easy to understand why. And his jerseys are selling out all of that and it is unavoidable that we're going to compare him to tom brady. It's not through any fault of anybody but you just can't help but do it. How would you describe teddy as one who understands the dynamics there as well as anyone. The pressure on this rookie. I would say. Mac puts a lot of pressure on himself. I mean even watching him at practice. And seeing how i mean he digests like means so much to him not to make a mistake. Now did i think of tom when i saw that. Also when. I saw tom as a young quarterback and i was playing that role that i just mentioned that those leaders have to take that a young quarterback that puts a lot on himself and puts a lot of pressure on himself. Mac can handle that. Mac knows what to do that. Mac has a great. I wouldn't say mentor coach. Josh mcdaniels to monitor all of that. So this is a kid that i think is used to pressure. He'll be able to deal with it. And i think a lot of people around here were realized that they they know what the process looks like because they saw it for twenty years. Max just starting right now dan. It occurs to me as well. He's going to be the first player ever. Do start for nick. Sabin and for bill belichick as the starting quarterbacks and so there's some pressure involved in this that he already probably has experienced. He's trained the right way. I would say this when it comes to pressure you other feel it or you apply it and i think the nfl world is going to quickly find out that this kid won't feel much pressure but he will apply it the same way we watched. Tom brady apply pressure to opponents week after week after week after year after year. I honestly believe he will start to apply pressure rather than feel it much more on this as we go all day long we will also get to the other side of this that legendary player in cam. Newton was released yesterday and it might be the end of his nfl career. We don't know that for certain and again. I have the poll question up this morning. Which team should sign cam. Newton and it looks to me. It's on my twitter page right now. The majority of the fans voting say houston is the logical. Place certainly does make some sense. Washington make sense to the degree that ron rivera was as coach camps coach for a long time in carolina. A lot of the fans want to dallas to sign him. The falcons lost their backup quarterback yesterday. Cast your vote on my twitter. Page at espn greenie. Meanwhile as we continue sneaky big and bad news from green bay that could be the beginning of the end of a iran. Don't miss it. Plus are they making a mistake by the lake or when it comes to this. Qb question is everyone else getting it wrong. We've got all the answers. We're getting up with you on. Espn gatorade knows there are many paths to greatness. How you get there is up to you sometimes. You gotta grind it out to get up early put in the work even when you're not feeling one hundred percent sometimes take staying focused on a goal knowing where you want to be and that you'll have to pour everything in to get their other times. You just need to dig deep and show some guts to be brave and never let anything stand in the way of what you can accomplish then there the days you just have to get in the gym and see some gains to put in all the reps and gets stronger each day but whatever path you take to greatness. Gatorade is there to help fuel. The journey because greatness starts with g by meanwhile on blinders is brought to you by a whole foods market and what keeps happening here. I just want everyone knows. Jeff darlington is the most uniquely talented person in the entire world. What does that work that. You're spending their artwork. That's griddle one. You can spend any trying to get your system going i. I think that we really just anything. I can do it too. But it's just amazing. I i mostly glued to it. I can't get enough of darlington spinning one way or another and it is amazing. The reason i'm so fascinated. I literally have no talents. I can't do anything so the fact that anyone can do. Okay hurry up. I all kinds of news working here today. Nick serianni makes it official naming jalen hurts walking. Tell us that's right. And this is what nixon jailings. Starters done a great job. We wanted them to take the reins and take advantage of the opportunity that he got and we feel like the preseason the ad he did that now of course. This was the anticipation here. But they brought in gardner minch that we've talked about deshaun watson and interest from the there so basically this just confirms kind of what we expected jalen hurts in fact will be the starter in philadelphia for week. One another interesting story kind taken. Place here. we've got a ravens backfield now. That's wondering in the wake of jk dobbins what direction they will go. Todd gurley did visit the team back in june but we are hearing that. That's not necessarily on the inevitable. It's not necessarily going to happen at this point right now. The ravens looking at gus edwards as being their star or their starter justice hill tyson hill. Also guys that are on the roster but right now. The team is going to stick with gus edwards as part of being one david bahktiar. This one obviously is a big situation for the packers here now. We know that he tours acl back in december. The wonder was when he would be ready to come back. But the team did place in on the pup list that means that he will miss the first six weeks of the regular season. This is aaron rodgers blindside blockers so no doubt significant for an offensive line already. A little bit doing with some changes so backyard will be back at some point. We know that it's just going to be a little bit later. There may be some would have initially anticipated right at a minimum of six weeks. And let's put the numbers up that you were talking about for the last two years. This green bay offensive line has led the league in pass block win rate with bacteria ranking in the top two in both past and run blocking win rate over the last two seasons. He's an extraordinarily good player. And so this is sneaky big and bad news for a packer team that you mentioned that the center lindsay is no longer there so teddy. When you hear this particularly that back the will be out for six weeks. What's the first author goes through your mind. How i guess i'm asking orlovsky this but this is the worst possible news. A quarterback can have when you left tackle goes down and i say that because it's the best possible news i have as a defender as an edge rusher on the defensive ringside so i mean just starts a trickle down effect am i might take in my left guard and i'm moving him out. Do i have somebody else has to go in and play centers so guys are now playing different positions that they've done before but it's still not the continuity you want with the number one group in on the team that needs that continuity and work together in terms of slide protections blitz. Pick up those type of things so it just takes one hit. It just takes one hit on aaron rodgers and all of a sudden. He's out to three games. Danny yeah i mean to point think about this bahktiar out for six games. That means for thirty percent of their season. Six game seventeen seventeen total games. They're gonna have essentially three new starters on an offensive line. That was one of the best and football last year. Now look at their schedule. Saints dominant defensive line. Forty niners dominant defensive. Pittsburgh dominant defensive line. The bears dominant so four out of their six games. They're playing dominant defensive. Lines with three new starters position. Wise elkin jenkins sounds like it's going to kick out the left tackle. He's going to be good but he's not david yari. And then they're gonna have to rookies likely replacing some of those other missing pieces. Josh meyers at draft pick. Royce newman a draft. Pick so two rookies for six games of this season. Have to go into not play play well. And that's the biggest one of the sneaky est questions going into the season who's going to be there. Starting five in either way back theory comes back. How well does he play and get used to things and they're still going to be dependent on youth. The last point the last team. I remembered that how dominated off went on a deep playoff run and then had this type of turnover from one season to the rams out to. They went to the super bowl. Miss the playoffs the following year because their offense of line was at nearly as good. Mike how come you're telling everyone. As aaron would say to ari. lax. Because not only is he quick footed. He's quick minded greeny. And because he get the ball so fast he could overcome the deficiencies. That teddy and dan alluded to so by. No means is ideal. I do think. Josh meyers can replace corey. Lansley but aaron rodgers ability. Get rid of the ball quickly. Nowhere to go and because he has short area quickness it's not feel but they could survive this but no doubt about to replace two or three offense lineman in any one season is very difficult. I we'll keep a close eye on this again. Sneaky big and potentially bad news in green bay. Let me break quickly on. that thought. We have so much to do. We're going to dallas as we continue eight days to showtime once and for all as dak really ready for opening night we will tell you what the one biggest concern that remains is plus just how goodwill mack jones being one. How far can he take the patriots of got an essay ready to go. You don't wanna miss it next. Get up on. Espn with room.

Now i am so happy that the body is all i'm very happy to mac fodder i it. We're going to bring you team awhile. Twenty feet up on a lot of anal roof. When i heard the news about new thought about the fall off without we should all be happy right now about mac. There may not be anyone in sports. Who has had a better year than max jones. I want you to consider this year ago. Today he wasn't universally expected to be the starting quarterback at alabama when he was named on september twenty first ahead of five star recruit. Young jones was described by sports casting dot com as a potential late round. Nfl draft pick and quote. Even that is no guarantee which makes sense. He arrived in tuscaloosa with very little fanfare. He wasn't even ranked in the espn three hundred and then he sat behind. Jalen hurts in two thousand seventeen and in eighteen and most of nineteen. Bryce young was supposed to be the next great one mack. Jones sort of had. The feel of a bridge quarterback is such a thing as even possible in college. And then you know what happened next. He threw for more yards than any alabama quarterback ever he had the highest completion percentage and qbr in college history and he won the national championship. Then he's drafted fifteen by new england and beats out. Ironically all burns legendary cam newton and so three hundred forty four days after being named a starter by nick sabin. He gets the same nod from bill belichick. He will in fact become the only quarterback ever to start a game for both of them as head. Coach is the greatest ever their respective levels. Actually jones will be the first rookie quarterback ever to be the primary starter for belichick and his twenty seven th season as an nfl head coach. So what is the lesson of all this. Perhaps it's one they know only too well in new england where once upon a time the one hundred ninety nine th pick in the draft turned into the best player ever in sports. It really isn't about where you start. It's about what you do when you get your chance that to me is the story of mack jones. Let me come to the crew here. Dan orlovsky you're nodding. What do you think fantastic piece. He's one of those rare people that uses doubt as fuel. I honestly believe that everyone gets by some people at some point right and a lot of us complain about it. Or we don't like it and he just uses fuel and again there's somebody that played that position at that organization for a long time that came across the same way. And i remember calling alabama games last year speaking with their coaches and steve's artesian their offensive coordinator who's the head coach at the university of texas. Now said he's the most maniacal preparation guy he's ever been around now. Steve sarkissian was around matt ryan and mvp in the league as well. He said that this kid never gave bryce young to recruit. You talked about even a smith a snip of that starting quarterback job because he was so maniacal about the things that he can control in his preparation and just believed the more. We doubt him. The more he's going to use it as fuel gas and to your point. That sounds exactly like a guy that we've heard of new england a timer to mit. I want you to make the point as well because the fit is so perfect for him to be where he is now seemed so perfect and the point you made earlier about. How bella chick made this happen. I think is really worth mentioning again. Yeah greenie remarkable patients and disciplined. That coach bell check showed obviously. They identified jones as their guy for the core backs off the board. He's dealing with the whole. Tom brady leaves and what a championships and stoically he stays at fifteen doesn't move up. I would have such a pin. My stomach running so many drafts. I would go up and get the player we wanted. If we had the conviction the fact that he had the discipline to sit there let jones come to him worried that another team behind we could leapfrog them is really remarkable and they deserve so much credit. They got the quarterback he starting and they gave up zero additional capital again greenie. How about that teddy guys. I'm trying my best to pump the brakes on my enthusiasm for my former team because everything is pointing to restart on every everything is pointing to a restart on what was here in the past. I mean everything that. I've seen from mac everything i'm hearing from. Everyone talk about him. Glowingly are they're going to be a mistakes along the way absolutely. But i know there's coach. Bela checks believes you. Need good coaches good players and good fortune to win championships. And this was absolutely like mike. Tease talking about good fortune. That mac dropped all the way down to fifteen so they can just sit there and just say oh look who that is and then we'll get and the excitement i have isn't just based on matt. Jones is based on the fact that they spent like the most money they've ever spent and off-season on free that are quality pieces tied in linebacker. Receiver defensive back. The team is already. I don't wanna say built but it's just. The table is set for this kid. So i'm doing the best. I can and temper my enthusiasm but they are off to where they can just start winning. Football games again grad. danny. I just think teddy. I don't have any ties to the patriots. So i'll show excitement. We're fans of football. It's the pursuit of greatness. It's okay to admire. I'm excited for the young kid. I'm excited for new england. I'm excited to watch him play. 'cause i love when guys bet on themselves and get up and then got chances to be really good. We admire new england because they pursue greatness and in for everyday people like ourselves. It's very it's difficult to wrap your brain around that that they do it every single day and it's something that we admire. I'm excited i cannot wait. I cannot wait to watch jones play. I'm not gonna hide my excitement. It's okay for me to be excited about it. You okay with me off scheme teddy for whatever it's worth as a lifelong fan and season ticket holder of jets myself. I'm going to throw up. I'm going to because this is happening again. This is like the last twenty years of my life. It's just getting ready to happen all over again. I'm going to be seventy five by the time. This division isn't dominated by a quarterback in foxborough. Okay let's talk about a different quarterback here after a long training camp in dallas and a long preseason and all the speculation about that prescott sell the time has finally come from play eight days away. Jerry jones here commenting on the health of his cube. He's moving good. he's Really got that chip on the ball. Now that he's been throwing with his key receivers for a few days out there. The last few praxis. Frankly as far as him being able to execute and execute the throws and move around the wage should against tampa. I don't have any concern at all about that. Okay so no concern from jerry jones arlington. Sometimes the things that team say publicly. Don't match up with the things that we hear privately. What are we hearing from dallas greenie. Who whether you want to believe it or not. What they're saying privately does match up with what they're saying publicly. I get no sense of hesitation within the building and again we're at the point now where it's about showing us now telling us right like let's just see what dak prescott can do in week one. But i can assure assuredly tell you that the people within the cowboys or confident that dak prescott. We'll be at his best ability for week. One okay so with that in mind. Teddy when we you and i were talking about this before the show this morning you brought up the one thing that would be your biggest concern fascinating danny and particularly want you to hear this what i what i hope for this is i hope everything's chew absolutely love watching dak prescott plate i just hope dacca's forthcoming with all the information he gives the trainer has any gives the organization because there are certain injuries where i mean. If it's complex the trainers will go to the player in the owners. Go to the player and coach's player how we doing good and i just know that. Is that type of competitive. Says i'm fine. i'm fine. i need more rips. put me in. i'm ready to go. He just wants to prove to everyone that he's ready. And they can win championships. Chips and dallas. Sometimes that's a detriment to a player because there is still just a little bit of healing that has to go on so you take a hit. You make a throw. Then you feel it that all of a sudden. I'm still good. I'm still good. Everything's okay so i just hope dacca's forthcoming and everything that he is feeling injury to the trainer so he's one hundred percent interesting. Danny i love that and what you're hearing is you know even from me the the dak prescott hater as a player why. I'm a huge fan of him as a person because of that character but remind yourselves. Remember two or three weeks ago and the cowboys sent out that cryptic tweet of like this is not an alarming thing. Dak prescott is going to get another mm-hmm. I think that's the reason why they got that. Emory is doc was saying. Hey i'm good and they wanted to say okay. Your words are cool. Let's actually check what the picture show with that. Mri so i think is gonna be fine. I'm so excited. About this game candidly. I cannot wait to watch this football game in a week. And my brain goes to pool. Dak prescott is going to be healthy deaf offensive line. Better turn back the clock. The two thousand sixteen because this tampa bay duck buccaneers defensive. Line and pressure package is coming. And i don't care how good deck is feeling. And i don't care how healthy receivers are how dominant they are. He's not gonna be able to throw the ball from his back. This is one of the worst offensive line when it comes to blitz protection last year injuries. Two thousand nine thousand nine hundred kelvin. More their play caller better figure out ways to take deep shots early with max protection. He better make sure that. They're they're attacking men coverage zeke elliott twenty one. You'd better put your face mask on because you're going to have to pick up blitz protection. I'm so excited to watch this game. Then there it is right there. Max protect when those backs have to get involved. In the vaunted david and devon white blitz. they mean it real. We will see again. We are eight days away from football. That counts and we can't wait for it. In the meantime we got tennis today. Excited to watch the us open continuing espn espn plus noon. Eastern the highlight is coco. Goff against sloan stevens. Great match in the second round and then four hours of primetime coverage tonight will feature niamey's sokha as always you can also watch every point streaming live on espn plus starting at eleven am eastern time. I'm are the bears making a mistake by the lake or when it comes to this cuba question. Is everyone else getting it wrong. We're talking about it next. Do own or rent your home share you and i bet it can be hard work you know. It's easy bundling policies with geico. Geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com dan quote and see how much you could save. It's gyco easy. Visit geico dot com today. That's geico dot com back on. Get up and here's your morning. Wakeup call gary. Cohn mentor golf. Let's hear it run at first. Two out conforto stash. It's one of the other way that ties. The game alone to win is thinking for third hits kick bio score his those own darby buyers races home with a winning bets. It's extraordinary turn of events. Meanwhile back to the nfl. It's been a topic of debate as matt. Nagy is named andy dalton. The bear starting quarterback open the season justin fields. We'll get his work on the scout team yesterday. Here on get booger mcfarland. Had these thoughts on field. Starting the season on the sideline. I think we're confusing most talented with ready to play i agree. He's the most talented but he's not the most ready to play. These coaches are trying to do is minimize the damage along the way. They're playing a rookie quarterback before they're not ready is gonna call so i agree with matt. Nagy you play. Andy dalton and win. The kid is ready to play you play. But i don't think he's ready to play right now. That was interesting in part because it seemed to be the opposite of what a lot of other people. Dan orlovsky where you laughing. I mean i want to tell me. When do you know a quarterbacks ready to play. I said this many times. No quarterback ready to play like knowing. You're ready to have a kid you don't you just haven't figured out along the way you can you do it or not and i always. I've started to say this about young quarterbacks. It's not about being ready or not being ready. Do they have a skill or trait. That is going to allow them to survive. And then do they have a skill or treat that will allow them to thrive. Justin field has to one his ability to throw the ball downfield accurately. That is a trait. That is going to allow you to survive early on number two. You're athleticism and i hear people say well with this offensive line. You don't want him running for your life. Art little newsflash folks when you run for four. You ain't running for your life when you run six to in the forty like you're running for your life with the offensive line. So justin fields has the physical ability to not have to play with so much panic or fear because of the battle offensive line. And there's also so much schematically you can do to mask offensive line with an athletically. Talented quarterback joe. So that's i think you're speaking on behalf of among others of all of the fans in chicago that i'm hearing from generally at teddy you sort of looking at it the other way maybe little bigger picture view of it. How do you see it. Do you have the luxury to buy him three by him. Some more time. I don't know is it three four weeks i mean. Do you have that. Luxury asked what i think. Andy dalton is that luxury. This is an entirely different situation than the mac jones situation. He's got the offensive line. He's got the running game and a good defense. Okay just in. Fields doesn't have the offensive line and four four. That's good all right. He's running away from them. Guys in the preseason four four four four rushers out there on the edge when he goes up against some of these defensive lines he's about to see and these linebackers that can run him down. So if you have the luxury to buy him a couple more weeks to instill go maybe two and two. You get lucky. You go three and one in the first month of the year with. An andy dalton. Andy dolan kim by that time. I say if you've got that luxury use it so just field can still learn. I say. start the redhead. Go ahead my only thing. Would that teddy is this. I don't believe this offensive line is going to get significantly better in three weeks. I the talent is what it is the way well later in the season. If at all he's three weeks is not gonna make this offensive line significant significantly better. Three weeks is not going to get justin fields. Might be to peak at some stuff and said andy this now again reps. This is a position that is based on development. And you know this development only happens when you get repetition. And that's why. I say if you're thinking about three or four weeks let's just go. Let's just play the young man. Mike jumping when you see how better than he will see how that offensive line is. He will see where the weakness is coming from. I know they got an overload. They can't block that. Because i saw it for two weeks and i saw any dot com. Get absolutely crushed. This is what. I have to be ready for those type of visual realization moments. Like man that guy is fast. Tape lolly gagging pocket and got a separate those little things saying he'll see and he'll learn from those little things. Go ahead mike. it's really about a mindset back. Two thousand nine. We drafted mark sanchez at direct strikes credit. That one day one in three. He's our quarterback. We never looked back. And i think it's really more of a mindset with maggie hedging here. He should just say. Hey it's justin feels we can control the game and win we have a good defense aurora games. Okay we know our offense linings. Good justin feels athleticism. Can more than make up for that. So it's to me. It's a mindset that we could win. We could win for today. The developed tomorrow with just feels out there and he's hedging his bet and i think it's a really mixed message. He's sending to his team. It's a fascinating situation. Because there are the short term and long term considerations. We'll come back to this. We have to finish up a bunch of stuff here today busy we will continue to be in a reminder that there is no better weekend of college football. I don't think they're the one we have coming up for you this weekend. For labor day we got number one alabama and miami followed by georgia. Clemson saturday on.

Meanwhile mack jones entered yesterday with ten to one odds to win offensive rookie of the year. According to caesar sportsbook with the news of him being named starter he all the way up to number two five to one. He's got the second shortest odds of anybody. So let's finish today by asking that very interesting question who you got for offensive rookie of the year. Mike i'll start with you on going with jones greek. I scouted him at the senior bowl. I saw him in person last year. He's a young matt ryan. I think that we're going to get big. I thought he was going to be the third. Pick overall to san francisco. They had a great offense of lying. A really good ryan key set up for success. He's going to be the opposites of rookie of the year. I like jeff darlington. Who got so. I like mike. Tease pick. But when i look at those odds and see that and plus one thousand dodgy harris nutty harris. Let's go. i think that this guy has all the ability to be able to come into that offense running game. That's going to get his opportunity to be the offensive rookie of the year. I think he's got a really good shot at this. I actually do to. That is one that i would have in mind. Dan orlovsky who you got. You knew my monday morning. It's mac jones once. I figured out that he was going to be the starting quarterback. I felt like he was at the very top of that list. Mike pointed out the offensive line. I'll make the point again the best thing that you can give a rookie quarterback protection. It's not a run game. They will protect him. The weapons that they invested in the two tight ends the receivers on the outside and they will not ask him to do a ton it will ask him to play simple he will thri playing simple there. You have it. That's to patriots. And i got tedy bruschi left. I'm assuming i know where this is going. A greedy. I love me some great. Yes it's gonna be a quarterback. But i dislike what i see in a mike. What i'm seeing that kid in new york. The new york jets rookie quarterback zach wilson. Now i mean we have we look. Yeah how we looked at a rookie. Quarterback's is you know. There's there's athletic ability. There's accuracy all of that stuff. I mean zach. Wilson possesses a lot of that but is he decisive in what he does and then how does he do it once. He makes that decision. This kid is decisive. He seems like he knows what he's doing. He goes out there and he's got a low flare. There's just something about this kid. And i'm going to say. Yeah i'm gonna go with zach wilson choice for offense review. The year turns foods. I'm speechless. i can't believe this just happened. Can i just say that what you just said represents the best thing that has happened to the new york jets and ten years. I mean it has been a decade. The jets have had a moment as good as you picking. Zach wilson to be the rookie of the this show. All right greenberg your friend of mine. And i know you but this this isn't because your jet fan and know that i'm just i'm telling you what i really see about all these young quarterbacks a lot of good things and mac orlovsky. It's right. but zac wilson. Watch out. Dan teachers patterns. Someone pinch me dasell dreaming. This did this actually happen. Dan orlovsky is this possible. Absolutely the kid is super talented. And he's been really good in the preseason with this stuff we did not rave about which was that foam. Oh yolo style recess style football with the offensive scheme that he's in that low floor type of offense court davis even played allies. You're more yet their second round pick. He's going to be a superstar. The offensive line holds up. He's gonna put up some big time performances. Okay well phil genuinely been the best day. I've had in ten years. Thank you thank you forget.

Welcome everybody to another episode of the jersey. Boys podcast here on the blogging. The boys podcast network. Powered by sb nation. Your host dave starts. Show and america's fan keith. Ernst bret ernst on assignment. He is doing all the research and journalism stuff and just trying to dig deep into the world of cowboys media. And or. he's on tour. Let's go on no much dude man. Happy father's day happy father's day. The dedicated ones here. I am thinking like we gotta make adjustments to the schedule blah blah blah. We always kind of catered to each other schedule and on my father's day. Let's let's do it a little later into today and here. We are the two dads of this. Podcast that are honest. And the non dad out. Yeah i find that Pretty ironic. Yeah just i had. I coached my i coach. My daughter's flag football team. Oh yes the. Nfl play sixty yard and she was like you can. She's like dad. I wanna play in a moment gonna play through the head coach mike so i reached out to him like he wants to play. And i'm like but due to form the head coach in only for the cowboys. Owner caveat house i know right i was gonna tell me to f off. You know what i mean. And now he's like. Hey that's great. No there's a teen your daughter can be on it and you can be the cowboys. I'm like oh this is awesome so we had our first game today. We lost thirty two. Nothing she's my daughter called her mom now. Is your daughter playing. She's playing receiver running back. But it's not that dude i met. Look here's my thing. Unlike the other team in his have about ten kids on the team and they're like ten eleven years old. And i'm playing everyone you know so i if i just played the best players we wanna lost thirty two nothing. You're doing the whole everybody's the you know what i mean. These kids want to have fun. You know if you're not that good that in high school you're not gonna play. That's not gonna happen right. You know what i mean. High school play the best players but here. And even if i want these kids to learn even if they're not the best player right now they have potential more importantly who did you have fun. We lost the seahawks the seahawks. I know that's gross. Well listen listen coach. Get your get your act together gets better better players on the field or the cowboys losing it. We're relying on you to turn this all around and you just can't do it. Oh before we get into what i wanted to get into her. What we're told the to touch on today. I will say that the game you keep bringing up the forty four. Nothing game that we lost nine hundred five ready for this. You know how my my mom's water broke In eighty five for the opening night it was my christening that day so my dad literally set up a black and white. Tv in a vfw and he didn't want to miss the game and while he's i wish you would have missed the game because of the result but another cowboys game in my first year of existence that has like such a big historic impact. That's fantastic. i'm not fantastic. I know your dad was going through the same pain. We work so he was a grown man kids. Yeah i think it was when i was born He said he he kind of liked toned down a little bit but my mom. My mom tends to you know they've been divorced. I dunno rare on cowboys last super bowl so She would always tell me like. Oh your father you know. Kicked out of bars left. And right in the seventies. And i'm like there was one story told you guys is there your super bowl against the steelers. This this is for my mother now. So i don't know if this In the seventies. I second one you know which one it was however he went to a bar To one super bowl and he brought a little tiny actually. I'll show it to you like something like this. Like a little tiny dallas cowboy replica helmet to put on the bar to kind of like you know. Plant your flag in the ground. You know what. I mean like this. Who i root for and apparently a big bigger steelers. Fan you know. During the course of the game smashed it literally is like one shot. Yeah just a total jerk off right absolutely so instead of my dad retaliating by smashing him. Which i'm pretty sure. Could've he went out. Came back with a actual life size replica. He goes smash this one. That's my mother story. I don't know if there's any truth to it. My mom's out there so it's like the guy still smash it was like that's exactly so as far as our current cowboys are concerned You know again. There's there's a lot of stuff about to go down. You know you have training camp about to happen. A lot of position battles. I was actually talking to a couple of the guys. I don't know if you caught that. I know you're in that slack. The ride that you could see the guys go back and forth on the blog into boys Podcasting network along with the writers over there. I'm trying to plan a trip to go out to oxnard. It's on my bucket list. I was almost going to do it. Two years ago and i didn't But now it's just about dates. Do i wanna go. What it's originally i was like. I want to go for that opening ceremony. The first practice and this that and the third. You know what. I mean so i wanted to do that but then i think it was tom. Roy rile on the blogging boys. Podcast yeah the work. He says he'd rather go like another week later. Because then you kinda get the feel like. They're they're in the flow of things. There's no like feeling out process so have you. Have you ever gone out to any of these training camps out here. So i do. Yeah i went to the thousand oaks. I don't honestly man the times i went. They were you know it's it's so crowded in there practicing. It's like i know it's cool. I guess if i was a kid i would be like. Oh my god this is awesome. But you know your little is at the excited about. At the time i was going. You know there might. They were my age now. They're they're younger than me. So it's just a little. But i can see you know and you got these adults like towering over these little kids are trying to look. It's like you get out of the way right. You know what i mean like. You're you're you're a grown man for zeke elliott's you know autograph it's like like this little kid come through you which rawling anyways honestly i know you mentioned to me. I'll go out there with you. I really don't i. It's not really my thing man. Okay all right. Well you know i thought about it. It's like it's nice but it's just like real crowded and you know it's it's it's man practice and then brett had mentioned that he might have his hands on tickets to opening night Well not opening night. But like home opener. Night against the philadelphia eagles. Which i mean i am so on board to get out that i know you're not not because i don't go to games when my brother anymore. He tells he tells me to shut up and sit down. And i'm a screamer so he's not going to be able to tolerate me then. I'm telling you wait. That's why you think i'm going. Because here's the deal. He had he gets box seats from this guy. There's a sandwich place called fat cells Right and Against jerry ferrara. From and sal you know. They opened this restaurant whatever. So that's how brett knows them. So we go to this game. And i was just i just get up. I'm loud. i'm not a jerk. I'm just loud. Bruce shoot him. Do good resp- spa. We're we're we're in another person seats. We don't want to act out. I'm like do at a football game. What do you mean. And then everyone else around us is going like i remember one. There was one dude intersection. That was walking around hitting on. All the girls it's like about a noxious. I'm like what about this guy over here. You think he's gonna remark about me standing up on fourth and goal and you know how crazy this game was where where was starts how fun. It was opened away against the giants in in a stadium. This was the. This was the three year when we started out. Remember holly yeah. We beat the giant. We'd be three bad teams. Beat the dolphins suzanne. Oh wow you were there for that one okay. Yeah i mean that was a you know a everybody's booking their tickets to miami. They were thought so yeah. Stray dominating people Those are my favorite games to go to as far as the cowboys giants either with her in dallas or is obviously were. I'm jersey so i go every year and now that everything's gonna pass us now and full capacity in this that you know. It looks like i'm gonna be going back to new york to to to to watch the cowboys. Beat up on the giants. So be it the charger game. Second week here way. Second week on wednesday. The are we on the road twice. Yeah that's what it is those third okay and they are. That's totally los angeles for the charger. Game already booked hotel across the street. Wow you know what going all in yeah. I go to games every year. You i haven't been. I mean i haven't been i guess it was when i went out with my dad and my brother that was that was the last dallas game. That was the home opener. Tehran austin catches that bomb from that place was shaken And then like. I said every year i go to the meadowlands or metlife. Whatever the hell you're calling But yeah so anyway. Training camp is about the star. And we're excited about it. Obviously this is a very dead time in football. You know you really know. It's dead when i watch you know. I'm i'm looking like i don't know pro football talk or whatever and one of the top stories that aaron rodgers renewed his Golf membership at at a country club in green bay. Who gives a crap. Are you kidding me right now. But there is something that rj who is our our producer here on Jersey boys podcast and he came with something pretty good and i kind of like right away. I was like i. I have mine. Because i've been scouting it from the mountaintops for for a couple of years now especially going into this year. But it's a controversial topic in current dallas cowboys right now. What is something that you believe in that. Basically is being debated heavily throughout either cowboy nation. Or just the you know. The sports world doesn't buy your take. You know what. I mean. So i had one. I'll let you start. i mean. hopefully we don't have the same one. We know we didn't discuss this. But i'm assuming i'm assuming we don't have the same one. But what is a controversial dallas cowboy topic that that you feel. Is you know you're strongly about in your heart of hearts that people just tend to disagree with you okay. You know what it is. I gave this some thought. And it's like jerry jones. And when i when i say that is father. My father told me this one go ahead. But i'm just like the controversy behind him is. He doesn't like coaches coach. Jerry's team that's what everybody always says. That's why they think we're failing I tend to disagree with that though. Okay because they're like jerry will never give up the team. Okay are two best teams that were built in my opinion. I'm at this post landry. Wars obviously jimmy. Johnson's team were jimmy. Johnson was running the team. Obviously it's it's completely clear now that he was then bill parcells bill. Bill parcells built that two thousand seven. Tony romo dallas cowboys team. That went thirteen and three. That was not wade phillips team. Correct was bill parcells berry. Switzer took jimmy. Johnson's teams the same thing with wade phillips and bill parcells said his day wishes. He coached at next year. He's After the seattle drop. Were romo dropped the snap that he's like i just can't do this anymore all i actually that. That documentary on dallas cowboys dot com is phenomenal. It's called parcells last ride or something like that one. Yeah yes gray. And he talks about that. He talks about it at the end. Saying just didn't think he can do all the steps that you have to do in an off yet. Prepare for the next year that year. Obviously he built that team from scratch man. That team was a bad team that he inherited and he really. Yeah he really. I felt jones had no hand in it at all. That's my point is that he will jerry jones to win a super bowl people. I know what you're trying to say that he needs but he will give up everything for that. Even a coach head coach. Jim harbaugh or bill cower or somebody to come in and say look you want me to do this step out of my way if that person can win him a super bowl he will do it. Do you think he did that. You did that with mike mccarthy. No i think mike mccarthy is more of a a you know whatever you want type guy. That's what i get from him. That's what i don i know. But that's what i get for him. And i'll tell you another thing about mike mccarthy is i still don't believe in them i don i don't think that You know i like. I said the one super bowl. He won with green bay. They shouldn't even have been in the playoffs that year. For the sean jackson. The miracle in sean jackson the miracle in the meadowlands part to when they came back from thirty one to ten in one if the giants won that game and just pointed it out. Packers go to the playoffs that year and they don't go to the super bowl. Yeah matt were beyond suicide. Watch exactly but you think you think. Think about this right. Aaron rodgers kinda. Mir's tony romo to me with that. Because now it's coming out where aaron rodgers like aaron rodgers like is carrying. Not like romo did correct. You know he is he. Is you know so anyway. Yeah i'm worried about your dog either. I rj chela has a puppy. That's always making an appearance everytime performing during or performing recording his podcast. But right. I think jerry jones At this point of his life you know it seems like he would. I kind of think. That's the mike mccarthy higher. I want to say that. Because i wanna say that. Like he let mccarthy come in he let mccarthy kind of pick his staff and it and it totally fell flat on. Its face you know. He got his boy. Mike nolan you know what. I mean like a friend of his basically. We're not in the business to do friends and now this time around wither. There's a. There's a coaching tree or not. You know. I feel like dan. Quinn was more like he'll get the job done more so than dan. Quinn would. I mean that might nolan. Would they let him draft his entire team. They let make a free agent. Signings guys under the radar. Signings you know jerry. Jones usually a very prideful guy so when he took a shot on a gerald mccoy last year and don terry po and these guys that were supporting traded forever griffin. They were supposed to pan out and those are the flashy sexy names that are in the media right. That was i felt like that was jerry. You know puffing out his chest again like you know hey listen by the way. It didn't work. it did not work. It was literally statistically one of the worst events we've ever seen. You know what i mean so i think that what jerry has done now is what you said. I think he might have stepped back a little bit. I think i think the dishwasher you look at that roster up and down i mean the stars have made themselves that press guy wasn't a star the only star that you have on that team is technically ezekiel elliott and demarcus lawrence. But we drafted lawrence. You know what i mean. We draft zeke. So there is no free agents no big splashes of free agency that we have to say like jerry went out of his way to get this. And that's i know there's a lot of cowboy fans out there probably listening to the sound of my voice in saying we never active in free agency were never actively well. This is why we draft rather well. You don't do. That's a collective decision. You know agree so no for sure man i. I'm on board with that being a controversial thing to step back. Because i think he would. But there's a lot of people. My dad actually said when i when i brought up the topic today on father's day hanging out with them poolside. He goes you know what my controversial topic would say that you know the cowboys will never win. Another super bowl as long as jerry. Jones is alive. And i was like i mean it's it's it's debated you know what i mean. People do believe that people think that. There's he's so needy. Depend his team. That will never get out of his own way. and then we'll just be completely screwed. You know forever. Sure but in the same sense again. I think this team this year seems a little bit more put together from the ground up. You know not so much you know grabbing those splashy free agents now for sure and when we'll see with the amendment once again the play calls in the a lot of things that happened last year under mike mccarthy's watch cannot happen again because one games are down to the wire weenie. That's when that's when you need a coach that's that is your that is when you can tell if you have. A good coach is crunch time. You know what. I mean like the how you gonna handle the last three minutes of a game. Either you know you you need to win or in your close. You know the scores close or or the opposite. You need to maintain the score right. You know those type of decisions which you know like Bringing up the challenge that he didn't in the giants game last. That was gonna stick for a little while in for him not to come out and say it was a mistake really bothers me. It does i. I'd rather have accountability. I'd rather have guys come up and say look. I made the wrong move. I should have did this. I should have twenty up. You know the the co owner here at chop sports. We talk about all the time. Because he's a massive packers fan and he always mccarthy forever and he told me he's like one of the biggest bugaboos that he thinks about. Mike mccarthy is a is time management and be his his decision making when it comes to you know. Well we have these two time outs. Let's not use them here. You know what i mean. But let's lose him down the road just not correctly you calling timeouts and time management. That's a big deal in the nfl. Control not clock. Everything know for sure man support for this episode comes from forward. Most people go to the doctor for the one offs like rashes and colds and your annual flu shot but doctors can do more.

April two thousand twenty one see five g device coverage access details at t. Mobile dot com. But bro. well here's mine and again. This isn't flashy breaking news. I've been saying this for a long time. There's a lot of people out there that put these top ten list together whether it be pro football focus or nfl dot com or you know the big name websites that the mainstream sports media And they don't rank dak prescott. A top five. As far as quarterbacks are concerned and i me believe that dak prescott is a top five quarterback. Okay i don't understand the you know if i had a rattle them off right. Basically would you have to do is to narrow this down. Say who's better than deck right now. You know the guys. The only guys i see better than dak prescott. Aaron rodgers patrick mahomes. I'll give the nod to tom brady. Because of his his leadership and his just longevity and success and and he just wanted to super bowl the super bowl put him at three. I'll put a guy like a russell wilson at four. I think he's like a five. I think he's the these really good and i think he's right on par with dak prescott. I think dak prescott is better than such as you know it's too. It's too early to rank josh allen or justin. Herbert above dak prescott. I don't think it's too early for that. i think. Dak prescott is a folk more complete quarterback than a lamar jackson. I firmly believe he's the same level of skill. I might give the athleticism. That the shawn watson but you just can't give them anything right now because you don't even know if he's going to play this year so i give dak prescott the nod that he's number five in the league and i know there's a lot of people that think that i'm crazy in this regard. I don't think you're crazy. But i don't agree with you. Well give me another one razi while all right so i'll ask you. The named you're in agreement. Araj irs brady mahomes wilson better. Yes who else is better than prescott. The two that you mentioned i would. I would say definitely Herbert definitely confident that justin. Herbert hoover played one season in the nfl season and he had a dan merino type season. Man broke game. Marino's records yeah. I can come and say that met one season in the. Nfl means a lot. I would never say trevor lawrence or anything like that. You know what i mean. Because they haven't played down. But yes i would say and you know what i'm at lamar jackson man. And there are two different quarterbacks. I agree so it's hard to say you know gonna nfl on the. Didn't you want nfl mvp. Did he did but it to me. Quarterback has to be complete. Meaning if you wanna be athletic and that that runner great but you gotta be able to throw the football. And i don't think lamar jackson throws a good football at all. I think there's plenty of times. Yes has he has. He dropped a couple in where. You're like whoa. How did he do that. Yeah i get it every. Nfl quarterback has had a good throw at some point or another. I'm sure sam. Darnold has a couple of good throws before you know before we write him off into the sunset dot prescott overall as a better quarterback as constructed as a prototypical quarterback should be is better than lamar jackson. I meant i look at it like this through. It's like i get what you're saying but you know he's so hard to gain plan for lamar jackson. I mean you just have to go look wooded like we did last year the worst defense in the league. I know i'm just saying though. I meant you know. He's made the playoffs. Whatever year. he's he's been playing but he hasn't done anything. He won a playoff game any for sure he hasn't. I don't know maybe. I could be completely wrong but i think has one. I'm trying to say is that you know. He's leaving his team. Dak had let's be honest man. He's had years where he did not make them into one year on a terrible division. He did not in the must win game against the eagles you know. He played terrible that game. I got things like there are games out there. There are games out there. That the even the best quarterbacks in the league like aaron rodgers or like a patrick mahomes. Patrick mahomes didn't even almost practically didn't show up in the super bowl. You know what i mean. Don't get the last one the one before that. Yeah agreed agreed. I the only one. I would say i would. I would put act. I'll give you lamar. Okay i'll put him in front of lamar. But i won't put an put him. Look man josh allen. Both they're both really good deal. Do row when. I watched that when i watch him play josh allen. I've never in my life. Seen a quarterback that can threadneedle running out of bounce. I met that is his thing man. I saw it on numerous occasions where it's almost like like you think he's going out of bounds and he just throws it forty yards down field. It's just a it's a beautiful pass you know. It's almost like the aaron rodgers. One he had against us in the playoffs for third in whatever was an cook. Yeah like he but he does that consistently so I meant i i. I'm with you. Maybe i gotta see josh allen more year so i'll put back in front of him. Okay so but josh allens been there longer than just in herber and you're saying that he's not above herbert. I just think harbor to dan marino. Tight man it's just my honest opinion. I think he's gonna be. i think. Mahomes and herbert in the afc west is gonna be a showdown for years the comment that's gonna it's gonna be must see football and i'm okay. Yeah yeah but but i would not. I would the one quarterback. I would and i know you don't agree with this. I would put in front of jack is matt ryan. Yeah lord girl. You're behind that. I can't not especially not this year. He's going to have himself a hard time. Well let's see what he does you. You took away his literal best men and look matt ryan a gamer. I'm not gonna take anything away from him. He's been to a super bowl. I get it And it's not his fault. They lost that super bowl. No i'm not saying that. He's a bad quarterback. But also if i were to start a team right now i'm taking prescott as my starting quarterback matt ryan. That's how that's how. I also compare quarterbacks like what would you do if you had a chance to to put like build a team around somebody but all right because dak is younger like if you gave me. If you cut ryan definitely my caveat matt ryan at twenty eight i take matt ryan twenty eight twenty years old i was. I think he's thirty years up there. He's up yeah he's up there. He's got a couple of seasons right man. I need to see your loved ac. And you know we're so lucky to go from you know Tony romo to dak prescott. But i need to see or just a little more man has to at last year Even when we were getting our ass kicked defensively atlanta game the browns game. You know like those games were defense. Which is getting shredded dak. Prescott was on pace to just unbelievable. Things you know. And then he obviously breaks his ankle against the york and and the world kind of collapsed around us as a team and as an organization as a fan base. But you got a guy that that man. i know. we're cowboys fans here. I just think that the kid works harder than anybody else i really do. And i think that he worked harder and harder just to get back and he's going to be back for training camp and he's going to be one of these kids that just won't be denied and i think the fight in this kid is unprecedented. I think he's just again. He's a gamer. And i haven't seen enough out of justin herbert yet. Yes have i. Seen some flashes of greatness absolutely Same thing with josh allen. You said the kid is lacing balls in places where you just didn't expect them to fit it in not at all. Yeah and but but dak prescott when given the right talent around him. The office of line is back. I'm very very optimistic. And very very confident that this guy not only win by a landslide comeback player of the year but like a potential most valuable player type season. Look of the greatest trios. Nfl right now. You know what i mean. I think that michael gallup isn't talked about enough. I think ceedee lamb has has been touted. And you should be you know. That's what we took two years ago. In the first round. And of course amari cooper when he gets back to health one hundred percent health one of the better route runners in the league. I would say that And this is a you know. What's another controversial topic among cowboy fan leader nine. I i probably have this argument more with cowboy fans than anything else is them thinking that tony romo was not a good quarterback and success because he's never won the super bowl pretty much and they always talk about the stupid snappy. Drop which you shouldn't even have been in there for the field. Well you know that's all they have you talk to them if you talk to them like oh he choked like what else did he choke. They can't even answer that because there wasn't any time why think that the throw in two thousand and seven. I don't think that was bad at all w scored the end zone. What was he supposed to do. Though i mean it was almost it was almost desperation time at that time when that happened. I thought i mean if you look at it. I mean it. Wasn't you know what i mean. We needed a touchdown. We couldn't win by field goal. Yeah actually i just posted on my social media the play where shakes. jj watt. greece scrambles. I've ever seen but my thing with rama which the reason i'm bringing up that with prescott as an honestly. There is no no other way to go with this. There's no black. there's no black or white nothing. it's this is the way it is. And i know nobody wants to hear this but i'm gonna tell him all right. If you think tony romo was not a great quarterback you did not watch every play of every game of the dallas cowboys during his tenure. You did not all you did you. Half ass watched games. And you listen to those stupid pundits on. Espn that that bash them all the time. Because she's a doubt because he's a dallas cowboy quarterback an an nfl network. They did the same thing you did not watch. Highlights you listen to them talking. You did not watch every play of every game because any dallas cowboy fan who watched every play of every game. We'll tell you that. Tony romo was a great quarterback and absolutely could have won a super bowl. Okay if a couple of things went his way now back being said i watch every play of dak prescott okay And right now. I would say tony romo's third year fourth year. Our saying the same thing about him. I need to see a little more. So i could have. I hope i don't. I hope he wins the superbowl dak. But just because he doesn't win one doesn't mean i'm not gonna say he. He's a great quarterback giving him saying yeah totally. So that's my thing. I'm beyond being a little harder. I think he has it. But i have had to see it. Man that's another popular popular take. Is that you know it's funny. Another controversial topic as we're just roll off now. Is that cowboys. Fans are completely. Just think that there's nobody better than us at all times for if you listen to this podcast you know for sure. There are other sides of the spectrum when it comes to dallas cowboy fans. I'm optimistic most of the time. But you guys you know you and brat both you know kind of put me in my place most of the time. But i will say this and i'll say this boldly and i'll say it to the day i die. Tony romo was better as a quarterback. Then eli manning and that's not the beatable for me. I agree i don't care. I understand the success. That ally had i get it to super bowls. The guy did nothing. All right you scramble away. And then the guy catches on his helmet and all of a sudden down his players. You've ever seen that was a bad pass. Plays one a two manning ham on the sidelines. And he does drop in the bucket to plaxico burress. And i get it. He has success. The giants team was built different especially defensively but pound for pound quarterback for quarterback. I'd rather have tony romo in a in a two minute drill to get me down the field. Yeah and if you look at besides the playoff game that we lost the divisional playoff. Which i still wasn't it wasn't romo's fall There there are defense. Completely let us down a path. Divisional playoff takacs. Your crate drop in the eighteen. I know so. There's so much it was not romo's fall. Even though people like to say it was now it wasn't so easy way out. Yeah exactly but i will say go do your own research people because if you look at head to head tony romo owned eli manning and pretty much every statistical category as well and and went to win and loss. I mean he was commit that. He i think i. I've i've done it before. Because i have giants fans argue with and i'd be like dude romo own you own. Eli you know. it's like it's a spoiled the super bowl super bowl ring party opening game. I remember the new star ledger. That next morning was a great day. Never eat tree baby number one on the waivers more all. There's and didn't do anything. Moral will three please. Oh man. I'll never forget that for the rest of my life but yeah the cowboys are always kinda surrounded by controversial topics in a and. I know that there's a lot of people out there who are not cowboy fans. You're always think like well. You know you're a cowboys fan. So you just you have one track. Mind where you just think your team is the bazan you're not. You're not beatable. Look our topics today. Kind of expressed to you like yes. I'm a little optimistic when it comes to dak prescott but again when the romo romo debate you know that. That's one of them. That drew diehards will go to bat for tony. Romo and a lot of guys. Even some cowboys fans will say like if win a title then he you know there's no success is the bar has been set by a guy like a troy. Aikman roger starbuck. Because they want all these super bowls and that's not really fair to any quarterback coming after them. You know what a good relation to that is. Is the chargers. Because philip rivers is like tony romo and they love him like. I can't go to a charger fan and say philip rivers sucks. They'd be like hey easy easy easy whereas you can go a cowboy fan and say tony romo socks and they'd be like oh you know they'll be like you know be the opposite. I should say right right. I mean they'd be like yeah. You're you're right right. I'm just saying with philip rivers. You know they'll go to bat but like you said a lot of cowboy fans with romo. You know what i mean. They're not be like oh bigger split bigger split than it should be. That's yeah i know absolutely and the reason why is how many super bowls have the chargers one right. i don't even. I don't even know if they want. Just what you said you're so right. We set the bar. It's like okay. We got five super bowls. We were the i know that. Find forty niners. Were the first team to five right to win five. Yeah yeah they wanted ninety four and then and then we want our fifth year. So yeah i met you know but i'm just saying it's like okay. You don't want super bowl. You suck in dallas cowboy land now atrocious it is. I'm gonna great. Players of all time never won a super bowl. We've gotten we. You know mean you and and everybody has gotten that debate like dan marino for for the love of god you know what i mean like one of the better professors ever yeah. I'm you know jim kelly. I'm at the list. Goes on and on man. You know jim. Kelly was on the dallas cowboys and not short mean he would have won the super. Bowl's sure i'm cops. Yeah yeah. I mean it's aikman's awesome amend. He's the best but meant to was surrounded by you need that. Sometimes you know what i mean. Roma never had romo never had it. I guess the best and closest thing he had was when when when he had terrell owens as number one and jason witten was this guy those teams that twenty seventeen thirteen and three they were cruising man. That team was bill and so it's two thousand fourteen. When he had dez demarco murray was going nuts he definitely had tools around him but like again know. Aikman was surrounded by little hall of famers and the thing is though the defense like reichman. They had a great for can defenseman. And we've been that's what we're missing and romo never had that. Never he never had a. I don't even know if he ever had a top five defense in the nfl. While he played that i would have to look up. Yeah i wanna say twenty. Fourteen had a pretty gosh darn decent decent ranking. I'm not sure about the rankings. Yeah physically but i think that was a really good team but in any event. Look more controversies going around his team. It is the dallas cowboys. We're always always always in the news. What's up no i was gonna say. No what are you what like how about this. What do you. What do you think if you could look into the future. What would be the controversy in the future. If you get. If you had the guests some kind of controversy what would it be. And i'm gonna give you the scenario k. Were seventy nine missed the playoffs or sorry. Eight and ten miss the playoffs. That's seven ten. Yeah we're seventy seven ten and missed the playoffs this year. I mean would it be jack. All signs point to the defense didn't didn't turn around at all talk. It's bye-bye jalen smith and by vander esch. The overhaul begins. he's gone. I think mccarthy with this team constructed barring any injuries no injuries like delicious tap pound for pound. talent are they the experiment is comes in. It's what happens. Yeah it's gonna be that to me. That's the controversy. Are they gonna fire mccarthy or not. I remember we looked it up a couple of weeks ago. That his his odds were were the highest or the best. The best odds to get fired. I so i think this is more expectation burs reality expectations now a dak prescott behind center and everybody coming back healthy. You need to win some games especially playing in a really piss poor nfc still. I don't think anybody made any big strides in the nfc ease. The giants may have done a couple things the redskins they all right. They added fitzpatrick. So let's see what they do but the eagles really kind of went sideways. You know what i mean. Lot lateral movements. I think this is the cowboys division to win. And if they don't then yeah that that's a big big here. I think too. It's like why haven't they signed another quarterback. I don't know i don't get that. Now who is that on that. Be on jerry. Or would it be on mccarthy like i think you're paying that's down second week all right. Let's just say that happens I met we're gonna get gilbert godfrey in there you know we're gonna get a frigging New cooper 'dinu renewed. I meant the what are you going to start scrambling around like we didn't roma went down. And just you know matt cassel. What with with training camp coming around next month. Like i don't know i would have to look like i don't know if there's any like veterans out there. I'm not sure they left. When are they gonna learn the lesson. Man i mean they consciously jerry's tenure when he's going to learn that you need a good back-up to win some games you need it. Will they listen. I'll be again. I'll die on this hill. They had a good quarterback last year any dot and could've played a lot better he just didn't grab an offensive line. Need help them at all. And when he did flash his his his group not say greatness is goodness. I guess you could say when he did. Flash now is your minnesota game now as your san francisco game. Now you know the the second washington game you know what i mean like. Yeah he definitely played good enough to make the playoffs. It was just that we had so much to piss. Poor play defensive side of the ball no. The guy will say the last game against the giants the first half he was not a source i know but then the second half he stepped it up and he the guy got at hand stepped on. You know what i mean. It's a massive game. But i will say that. That's something they're they're they're bs and ombrone they shouldn't they really should not be doing. I mean love ashley. We thought there might be something. Redac- needs to take us for a couple of weeks. You know who knows you know what i mean. Maybe something gets tweet i met. You can't just all right. let's just let's just figure it out there. And just you know. Makeup game plans. Earn the schoolyard. Like we did against the eagles now. The only thing i can say is really i think is is that they're confident and gilbert and they think that this is good you know maybe you almost beat the steelers. You know what i mean. So it's not like a little very small sample size but again maybe maybe they just see something in this kid where they're like da forbid something goes down and dak goes down again that gilbert could be a guy. I don't know who would be. Who would be. Who would you take right now for a backup bench available. Well that's what i'm saying. Like who the hell's available disappoint man. You know what. I mean like this. You do a some kind of trade to get someone i mean. The only thing i can think about is one of these guys that you know one of the one of the guys that maybe you know who i want. I'll tell you exactly what i want. And it is going to sound kinda ridiculous but there's a guy out there that i know play ball. We've seen them play ball and now he was replaced for the future. And that's gardner. Minshew you that'd be good to the cowboys it's fantastic through. My dad is obviously the guy you know what i mean and they got tim tibo in their plan side end but lord knows if they knew they've tries to come back and play quarterback that would be awesome. So that's what i would be working on right now. If are the cowboys i be like. Look that's something i would look at. Because you're right he could come in and he's the type of guy that looks like if he comes off the bench he's gonna do well. I liked that one. What about what about a t. mobile man. T tyrod taylor. That's another one Last i checked. He was with the chargers. If i'm not mistaken and this herbert. Oh i don't know his status but another one. He's good too he's good to. It's all good. He's good too and then there's a a again. These guys were all replaced. You know so when when when You know justin fields. you know. that's kinda. That's andy. Dolan andy dalton in chicago but look team that was on the texans tax okay and he might actually start. You know what. I mean knows what that situations like because who knows. I don't know shawn watson even going to be playing this year and god help me so help me. God if roger goodell doesn't give the shawn watson six games out of principle there's going to be an opera from cowboys nation. Because you gave zeke six games and you had nothing on them. Nothing zero heroes so that that is a controversial topic that roger goodell decided to hand out a six game. Suspension against ezekiel elliott for allegations. No charges no nothing no evidence or not a and all of a sudden he got fifty four cases coming out for deshaun watson and he's just kind of sitting around doesn't know what is future is but i'll tell you right now like i said six games minimum. Roger do the right thing. But we'll like i said on previous podcast. I think the shawn watson might demand a trade to thailand. They might be better off so that being said. Take that one on the road for name sergio. And of course. America's van keith and of course bread earns on the road right now. We will see you guys next week. There's been another episode of the jersey. Boys podcasts here. Exclusively on the blogging boys podcast network powered by sb nation

La it's the heard wherever you may be however you may be listening iheartradio fox sports radio an app one. We didn't plan it this way. Join i match today. Were wearing yellow just one time of year where it enjoys. Where yellow address. I swear ago where we allow. We did not plan this. It's just the way it worked out. I can't believe something's in the air you know what it is. It's the summer my favorite time of year. La people are at the beach. Happy happy sons out masks all free. Who so weird as down at the promenade yesterday and like walking into a store fumbling with my mask. They're like you don't need it. How does that feel off. Like noodle soup. Great it does like freedom. It's great to have you in today. Ever watch the news especially like cnn and fox news or msnbc on cable and they'll have an expert on military expert political experts. They just throw that word around like everybody is an expert the other day. I'm watching a show. And they're talking about ufo's and they had a ufo expert. And i'm thinking. How can you be an expert in something. you've never really seen. Close tar to be an expert like to me an expert a veterinarian with animals. That would be an expert but everybody on these networks is throwing out expert. He's an expert on ufo's and military and foreign affairs. And i'm always a little skeptical. I'd like to introduce you to an expert. Kevin durant is an offensive expert in offensive basketball. That's what an expert looks like. He can dribble he can fade. He can hit threes. he can drive. He can finish he can slash. He is a complete offensive machine. Do you know how exhausting it is to play forty eight minutes of an nba game. How exhausting that is. That's a nine thousand calorie burn. It's not like katie's got an extra pudding he's skinniest. Great player ever. He plays an entire game. Forty nine minutes. Seventeen rebounds. ten assists has to defend. That was an all time performance. In what just remarkable. The last five seasons in which he's been healthy at the end of it he has been the best offensive player on the best team. So this is not a surprise in that game. I mean if you really think about it now that lebrons older and his out there really is no competition for the best player because this is always been a seventy five twenty five offense over defense league. Janas can't shoot. Kyri has struggled with injuries. Dame's a small player. Lucas too young. A d can't stay healthy and beads got injuries. James harden has no playoff credibility coli. He's hurt again kind of a question. Mark this is now that lebron lebron's always been sort of the roadblock now that he's out this is kevin's league it should be kevin's league the last five seasons in which he's been healthy at the end he's been like the best player on the best team and it was really funny watching this game last night is did you notice how emotional durant was and steve. Nash was at the end of that game. Like kevin's not on the floor. He'll be frustrated time to time but he's not. He's not a fist pumper. That's not really his thing right. He's kind of stoic. Sometimes did you see how emotional he was. Because i think kevin knows last night's win there in the finals. I don't care about philadelphia. i don't care about atlanta. I don't care about the bucks. I think kevin knew i got up by time tonight. Kyri will come back eventually. It's probably the next series and harden was obviously going to be rusty. He was that. I was like james ever played basketball. I think kevin new can. I buy us a night. That's it. I just gotta get us a night. If i can get us through this same way. I look at the football season when join. I go into a football season. You can't take a day off for five months. And i always look at thanksgiving if i can get the thanksgiving. I'm not sick. i'm ready to go. I can see the next monday. I show up after thanksgiving. I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I can see christmas vacation. I thought kevin durant at the end of that game. He knew okay can get past tonight. Hardens not gonna be really good. He's not going to be one hundred percent. He's not gonna have as timing he's not gonna be able to really defend any got him through it. I mean that. That's what an offensive expert looks like to be that effortless and that officiant in the biggest game of the year against us supposedly great defensive team again. What's amazing about great players. And i and i know we talk about him nonstop. But i've said this multiple times. does everybody understand. How much greater like peyton. Manning brady kobe bryant michael jordan durant. Lebron think about this. Every time kevin durant in his entire career after maybe his rookie season goes into a game. The whole game plan is stop that guy and nobody can i mean. That's that's what greatness is colby for most of his career. We gotta stop kobe tonight. You look film kobe. Nobody was sitting around breaking down film. On derek fisher or brian shaw. When you really think about how great peyton manning was he got. Everybody's best shot like defensive. I've talked at offensive coordinators. They're like oh. Yeah it's peyton manning week. It's payton. Tom brady week where you don't want to be humiliated. Like milwaukee does not want to be humiliated when they play. Kevin durant hardens not one hundred percent. Kyrie's playing so milwaukee this great defensive team new. Just stop kevin. They couldn't stop him. Didn't there wasn't even a speedo. I mean what you watch. Last night is the jordan against the celtics. He lost that playoff game. Is everybody knew michael. You gotta stop. Michael we can win. Nobody could stop michael. That's why when we say when people come up to me and goes you guys talk stars too much. I'm like do you understand how much better and chris middleton a good player. He is a nineteen point again. Nba player. Do you understand how. Great the truly great star chris middleton's not getting doubles. And he's giving you nineteen. Kevin durant is the whole focus of milwaukee last night. The coaching staff the players. And that's what you get. I don't want to hear about ufo experts. I'm done with ufo expert. That is an expert in offense. In steve dash afterwards in all historic historic performance. And maybe play the entire game. He barely missed. You know we know he's capable of nights like this but to do it tonight. You know we lose by. James obviously is soldiering through is elements. Down bodies were wounded and for him to have the toughness the mentality. That's what makes him one of the all time greats. And so this is a performance that you know a signature performance for for kevin and it was beautiful to watch and you could tell what nash in katie's reaction they could tell we. Just gotta get past tonight. And they did all right. This is devastating news for the clippers. That's really bad. It could get way worse. Kawai is out for game five against utah. That game tonight. he's out. Utah's going to win now. You can't put them on donovan mitchell. He's going to just bring down the house and you don't have to guard colli. Paul george is your primary score and that is a role. Paul george has not always been comfortable in. The jazz are gonna win. They're going to win going away. And according to reports now. Leonard is told teammates be prepared. I may miss the series. That's not great. You know. I was talking. We see all these injuries. I was talking to gary payton yesterday. Gary payton the glove is a hall of fame basketball player. I grew up in the northwest. He played at oregon state. And with a sonics great player. Gary payton played no fewer than eighty games only three times in seventeen years that he played fewer than eighty games. And when it was fewer was like seventy eight seventy nine and in that era there were harder fouls you got pushed around more. You didn't have state of the art treatment like now. That was more fatiguing travel in. Gary payton ever miss games and i asked him. Everybody's getting hurt is it luck. Is it a condensed schedule. And he said he sets up very interesting to me. He said you know the more power players get in any sport. The less they have to practice and the less conditioning you can demand of them and he goes when i played. I had to guard guys that were like michael jordan. Strong he goes. I didn't get hurt because i was lifting. I would be in the facility for five hours lifting for three. That's just not the way the game works in the nfl offensive lines have gotten so bad. I mean i'd never even talked about offensive line's my entire career doing this in the last five years. That's all i talk about. That's why like the cleveland browns. This year their offensive lines easily. The best football is that. Why did the offensive line's get bad. We still have offensive linemen in college. Great ones but with the way the players didn't get necessarily all the things they wanted but they got less practice time. What does that mean well. What's the unit on the football field. That needs the most practice time lines. It's a very technical position. I mean myles garrett can rush the passer in any defense you know what i mean but an offensive line to be a cohesive unit needs practice time well in the last. Cba they took away some camps. They took away some practices. Even great college offensive linemen take longer now usually year two before you can count on them and players one but did they really you know the players now have more power than they've ever had in the nba but players have always run the nba. But now you can't demand as much the weightlifting. The off seasons a lot of these guys just check out they come back and they play and by the end of the season there banged up some of its condense schedule. I'm not denying that Some of it could be bad luck but we have literally every star on. Virtually every team now is hurt. This is beyond condensed schedule and bad luck players when they win in these collective bargaining agreements. One of the wins. They always want is gimme more. Off-season fewer practices less nonsense at the end of the season. That's not always a win. we know. Russell wilson lebron james most of his career in brady don't get hurt much y because of the time they put into their bodies in the off season. I mean lebron. Tom brady and russell wilson have nothing in common to play. Football one plays basketball one. Six nine one closer to five nine one's skinny and tall ones bulky and tall one short and squatty but it's their commitment to the off season their commitment would training that allows them at the end of seasons to be strong and healthy colli leonard. Anthony davis i mean just. I'm not saying these guys don't work hard but it's got to be more than a condemned schedule this series. Now it's very interesting. Utah's going to obviously win. Game five but remember if kawhi. Leonard doesn't return for this series if the clippers get ousted from the playoffs if paul george does not step up as a primary score and lift them to a win. Steve balmer that clippers owner. We thought we were past bloom stage. He's not gonna just sit there because leonard. He missed twenty games last year. He missed twenty games this year. Now he's hurting the playoffs. So this this you know. I keep saying the brooklyn nets or fragile boy. The clippers organization is so fragile. I thought they got past it. I thought now. Okay here we go. Now they're back their past the bloom stage and then this happens last night and you're like oh boy. They're not winning in utah. I don't think they could win. A game in utah without kawhi leonard. They could probably narrowly when at home without him. But this could change everything absolutely everything and It could change the remember collides got an opt-out probably won't opt out but he has one bomber's not going to sit there. This now will expose paul george for the next two games. If paul george does not play well in the next. Two games and steve bombers watching. They're making a move. Which by the way maybe portland benefits. Maybe the lakers could benefit. Maybe somebody league benefits. But they'll move him now they won't trade him to the lakers but they will move in if the next two games are ugly. I my opinion. I had yesterday on the clippers. All of it changes you know. We all join iowa. Say this hold us to opinions. What information changes. I can hear jazz fans saying well. Mike conley was hurt. Mike conley coli leonard gay. I mean kyrie's great. He's not katie hardens. Great he's not k. d. mike conley's not alive leonard. This is a total franchise. Change your a total series changer. He's the best defender on the wing in this series. He's the best. Get a bucket guy in the wing in this series mostly unaffected by press negatively. He just puts his head down in place. What what a break for utah. And what a bad break for the clippers crazy. It is just crazy. What's happened to these playoffs. Coming up next. Nothing is everything but everything something. Not a good day in miami yesterday. I'll talk about that. What do you get when you cross a mercedes. Benz suv with a race car. What do you get when you put four liter by turbo engine under the hood of a luxury sedan.

So there's that listen everything something. Nothing is everything. It's bad optics. These are the last five things that have become news with two week. Sixteen bench for ryan fitzpatrick week. Seventeen three picks overwhelmed against buffalo off season. Admitted he didn't really know the playbook yesterday five picks it's not exactly great when there was a term tank for to. I'll go back to my epiphany. I really liked to for a long time college pre-draft and then the start of the season. I kept getting little bits and pieces of video. And i said it's not gonna work. There's no special here. You got to be special. Because that's when the play breaks down. That's what elway had marino's arm and release and peyton manning. There's no special size smaller than average arm. Not significant athleticism. Really really average health. question marks. now everybody is always said. He is accurate. It's funny about alabama quarterbacks. I went back and looked at what we said about. Aj mccaren we compared him to drew. Brees john harbaugh did too to its accuracy. What was matt jones. He is accurate. All alabama quarterbacks are accurate because they have six seconds to throw and their number three and four receivers are usually better than their opponents number one receiver. Greg mcelroy completed seventy one percent of his throws. I went and looked this morning. We praised his body. Blake sim sixty five percent. Jake coker sixty-seven percent you seeing a trend with alabama quarterbacks who their accuracy folks when you got six seconds you have a great running game. You're throwing throwing on second in three or third and one year. Receivers are wide. Open even in the sec. Because they're all first rounders to mazing. How every quarterback at alabama. Aj mccarron guys. I like greg mcelroy. Good broadcaster to blake sims to mac jones the accuracy. I need something beyond that. The accuracy is kind of when you go to a restaurant. The restrooms are clean. You probably shouldn't advertise that. It's it's the minimum. I'm expecting at a restaurant. The bathrooms are clean five interceptions. Keep telling me how accurate is is. Keep the keep keep telling me how accurate is you gotta give me some beyond that in judging by yesterday he wasn't that accurate. Joy taylor with the news you heard on the news is the third line. Aj mccarron we looked up this morning. We compare them to drew brees. Mack jones drew brees to Drew brees. i'm over that comp. I'm over most of these camps but yes i've been saying. Please stop comparing is to drew. Brees and tom brady. And aaron rodgers and russell wilson like those are one of one. God made them broke the mold like that lacks on those particular for twenty years. I kept hearing. This guy's the next tiger woods. The only thing close was phil mickelson. Who played alongside him and couldn't beat him fill is like almost that good michelson either. Yeah i heard twenty guys. We're going to be tiger. It's there that media is all by itself. Yes so there's so much going on in the nba right now. It's absolute mayhem. I don't know what we did. Nba gods what do we do. We don't deserve this all right but there's a lot going but let's start with stan van. Gundy out as pelicans head coach after just one season with the team he led them to a record of thirty one and forty one. not good. Enough failed reached the postseason. Or the play in tournaments. He reportedly had a rocky relationship with several of the players which contributed to the decision to let him go. That that's kind of been stands thing. He struggle with the white howard. He struggles with players and this is not a league. You can struggle your best player And certainly not anymore. So now new orleans will be looking for their third head coach in three years. They finished thirteenth in the west last year. Eleventh this year Looking at this situation though my first thought was obviously i on because as i just mentioned they'll be now looking for their third head coach but also you know john. Marantz was in the playoffs. This year with the grizzlies. They were ninth in the west last year and he won rookie of the year. They beat the spurs and the warriors and the plans ornament obviously lost in the first round but they made the playoffs and like they're going to be compared your your compared in that way. No question the finish. The pelicans finish thirteenth last year and eleventh. This year and zion is doing what he's supposed to do like zion delivering zion's been great and brandon ingram. It's the best he's ever been and lonzo ball had his best year. So you can't miss the playoffs by that gap. No so they need to make a major changes there and the gotta do it fast because most players as we know. Don't turn down that. I check but we've talked before. There's a lot of money outside of basketball. Now it's it could be an unprecedented time for someone like zion williamson. Who is again. The pelicans hire the wrong coach in two years from now. Zion doesn't need to sign that extension because he makes so much money in shoes. The hill just say i. I'll take sixty million less will make it up on the shoe side and now i'll go to a big market. They'll market the hell out of me. And i'll show also more shoes of new orleans zone owner at some local business stuff going on can can make it all work like it's this is a very important higher for the pelicans also reported washington and coach. Scott brooks couldn't come to agreement on a new deal agreeing to part ways brooks deal expired after the playoffs. So scott brooks also out in washington all right. So that's the that's the coaching news. Chris paul has entered the nba's covid nineteen health and safety protocols and his sidelined indefinitely you know what is the did. This feels like he'll be much. The series starts between the winner of the clippers jazz. They'll let him play doesn't it. Well they have protocols in place. So i now everyone is talking about the lebron. Yeah sketchy what's happening here. But i'm trying to like sleuth. My way figured out. But his isolation period is unknown so far it could depend on the medical circumstance or if he's already vaccinated because the 'isolation period for someone who is vaccinated might be much shorter than for someone who is not. I'm seeing from different. Not official reports but from different people that he is vaccinated so might help for the time period. Of course we don't know if he has tested positive oils just been exposed now. Don't have any of that information. You can test people now to find out immediately if they have covid. I've been tested. I get tested all the time tested. I think over one hundred and sixty okay. So it's like. I saw this news and i'm like gimme a break. Let chris paul should be allowed to play if he's vaccinated they tested only been exposed. But we don't know if he's tested positive so we don't have any information. So which is they needed. Kind of get this out there. Because total chaos and of course the way that series ended. And he's playing the best basketball. You have to figure this out. So the suns are currently waiting for the jazz and clippers series to end to find out who they're going to play and so the availability for the series could be in jeopardy. So there's no official start date for the western conference finals yet because obviously have to wait until that series ends so if it goes to seven games will be played on sunday so that will likely push the start of the western conference finals. Start of next week so we don't always gonna miss any time yet because we don over the situation is hopefully they get sorted out and he's available to play but it's It's just the worst. The worst possible news like disaster. So hopefully they get that sorted out so. The bears traded up to get justin feels with the eleventh pick but he might be waiting before he sees the field because obviously andy dalton is there as well. Qb one according to their twitter and matt nagy is committed to dalton getting the start start week one starter in again. I can't predict anything. You know that. That's how it goes many things that can happen between today and in week one. But that's andy is our starter and and justin's our number two we're gonna we're gonna stick to this plan i just. I don't know what's the value of digging in there. Yeah and i also don't think anybody in chicago believes it feels looks great in the preseason. He'll play. this is one of these stories. Like what is it june. So much can shave. He looks great in the preseason and the fans are going into spain training camp. I don't get what's the value of digging in and saying like he's our starter like you. You drafted meals at eleven. He actually should be the starter building. Anything with andy dolan. Somebody probably promised. Andy dalton will make you are starter not season-long probably told danny listening you'll start we. Somebody prime made him a promise. We'll start your week. One biard drafting a quarterback. There's no guarantees after that. That's what it feels like to me. But the bottom line is you know things. Change like the clipper series with utah. Collide hurt nothing. I said yesterday matters. We have new information to new series like the bottom line. Is that this kid. Lights it up in the none of it now. This is a relevant. That's what i'm saying like. Why even dig in on it like you guys clearly are having a quarterback competition joy with the news. Well that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard. Lie nick right now. Joins us brought to you by mercedes benz the best or nothing first things first host. So let's just talk k. D. i i don't really buy legacy game stuff. I think i heard that for lebron so many times legacy and it's like he's a top one or two player. let's move on. Kevin durant is one of the great offensive players. Ever he's got titles he's got mvp. He's outplayed some would argue lebron games but katie was so great last night there are those that are saying maybe it was a legacy game. Where do you fall on that. Yeah i don't. I don't even katie. Had anything to lose less than i but i do think he had a fair amount to gain if he gave us a transcendent performant and he gave us more than a transcendent performance. To the second most points he's ever had an a playoff game off by one of his career heights. The second most rebounds he's ever had it's the most assists he's ever had. You did all in the same game and the most impressive number is not the forty nine the seventeen or the ten. It's the forty eight playing all forty eight minutes when this generation. The only guy you've been able to rely on doing that in these spots is lebron. Who i think it's fair to say has a very different body and build thing kevin durant colin. It's one of the most impressive playoff games. Any wing has played in the history of the league. I went through the archives this morning. I think it's better than any playoff game larry. Bird ever played. Larry had an unbelievable game. Seven against the pistons. I think this was better. I think it's arguably better than any playoff game kobe's ever had and for durant the reason that it adds to his legacy is because we've never really seen him in this spot where he is the superhero. That is outgunned and outmanned. He's only played two series in his career where he didn't have an mvp along side him. The one when russ got hurt of ood twenty it. Thirteen or twenty fourteen and katie to play against the grizzlies without him. And they lost and one series against the spurs without steph in round one when the warriors were clearly better seeing k. d. have to do the jordan versus the celtics the lebron versus the warriors. In two thousand fifteen with no kyrie and no kevin love was in thrall ing. And i was there colin. It's the best impo person performance i've ever witnessed and it does when you start talking. Gallon about the best wings. Ever you have lebron michael you of kobe. You have bird and then durant a performance like that. I do think durant could some point. Start to elbow bird off that wing forward. Mount rushmore. Like i i think that is absolutely in play. He played a perfect basketball game last night. So so why is out for game five. He i was telling the staff this morning. I said if players didn't have numbers they had symbols colli would be a question mark personality availability. He's the you know riddle wrapped in 'nigma you just when he's there he's great you're not sure if he's there and i this morning i i just said everything i said. Yesterday about coined. The clippers doesn't count. 'cause the new information has completely changed. I think now. I i don't even know if he's gonna play the rest of the series but game five a landslide. Utah win in my opinion. Your thoughts on his his injury going forward so a couple things one is. There might be some in the moment like today. Now's the chance for paul george to do what kevin durant did. It's totally unfair to paul. George kevin durant fifteen best players ever paul. George in my opinion is not one of the fifteen best players. Currently you cannot ask paul george to go into utah and carry the team. They desperately need. They are not going to have why so they won't i by the way they haven't won in utah in the last two years with kawhi so i don't know that they were going to win. This series even was healthy without him there. I think so. I think they will lose tonight. And if he's not there for game six i think delus- game six certainly would lose game seven. Utah i do think however colin and i ain't you and i might disagree on this. I think they could have lost a utah with a healthy quiet. If that happened then. I think is free agency. Decision is a real decision. Like man eight. We've lost in the round two twice neither time. We're replaying some juggernaut team. Is this the best place for me to win a championship. But if they lose because he's out after they've won twice and blah fashion. I think it's actually easier for to stay with the clippers and say we would have won the title. But i got hurt and so i. I think that obviously the best thing for them is. He doesn't get hurt and they win. But if they were gonna lose with them healthy and lose with him injured. I think for long term purposes. It might actually be better for staying with the clippers. That he's gonna miss a gamer or we're both dads and i've joked before with kids. You have to constantly adjust your expectations when my kids were five i thought they were going to be president of the united states by tan. I thought i was hoping it could be president of maybe a small company and by fifteen. Maybe they can be president of a frat house some day. But you know you just your expectations. I look at milwaukee that's right we've got to readjust what they are. They're they're they're not a great team. They're getting so many breaks. They still can't win with breaks. They're the only healthy team left. That's it believable. Courant's hurt yeah. Go colli lefties. Lebron left the east. The celtics unraveled. Everybody on the nets is hurt. They're still unable to win. What are they now Right now they are screwed. I don't know i. By the way. I i don't think they're dead in this series. Because i don't know of katie can do that again. I don't. I don't expect hardened to all of a sudden be able to like move. He guy i was shot. He played last night. I was even more shocked. He played forty six minutes. But that loss last night was so indefensible. On in every facet offensively jaanus at the end of the game was clearly spooked out of going to the line which is why took the fadeaway jumper over hardened with a minute twenty left instead of going to the basket and i think it y. Barkley said after the game. He fumbled the ball on that last possession because he was trying to rush so they wouldn't fallon. Also james harden is out there on one. Les how do you not attack him defensively. He's not a great perimeter defender. Even good perimeter defender healthy on one hand. It would have been every time they did it. They got a layup. I can't believe boot. holzer didn't have them do it. Repeatedly and lastly colin they didn't double team kevin durant once the entire game. I know they only sent help his way. A half dozen times and katie took zero jump shots when they sent help. If jeff green is going to beat you jeff green gonna beat ya. But the the the top fifteen all time player who is shooting flames out of his eyeballs. Get the ball in his hands. Like i couldn't believe believing. And so if you're milwaukee you like all right. Our superstar has a giant hole in his game and our coach year after year after year in the post season can't make the obvious adjustment. That's not a great place to be. Now they are the only healthy team and maybe that is going to be what matters and maybe janas will have a brilliant game six but man mandla up seventeen with seven minutes left in the third and the other teams got one guy. You can't lose that game. And they found a way to lose that game one quick. Football topic The nfl pa. The players association released their first influence or hot-listing twenty twenty is this about brady but timeout efficient to his story. Why do you always do this to me okay. So they looked at total engagements is forget that brady's number one in the league which is kind of amazing social media is a young person's game he actually finished ahead of patrick mahomes who is viewed as much cooler and lit. So what are you mad. What are you. What do you make of the fact that old man brady. Even the young man's game beats mahomes. It's kinda fascinating well here. Here's what i make of it. And i i do things and neither of these things are going to be very professional but this is not professional view to bring up this non story just to troll me number one first of all joy if you could in the remaining two hours and twenty minutes on the show. Try to use some of your sources to dig into the actual mattress metrics of this to see how many of these engagements are actually from colin cowherd. How many liking and liking and liking again brady tweet. First of all second of all i and this is the part that is not really fair to my friend. Colin but whatever. I'm not on a lot of sleep. Bows at the game last night. And this is unnecessary. I i would just like the audience to pretend for a moment that ranked number one by the nfl. Pa and social media engagement was not tom. Brady was not patrick. Mahomes was say baker. Mayfield would con- it's a good thing to call me like oh bay curve more interested in the old twitter sweater. Vinnie is the old quarterback but no is his patron saint. Brady's doing it so it's great. It's why he's the goat so ridiculous. I can't believe you squeezed this topic. Unbelievable he makes a good point if it was baker. I you know. I may have been a little well. Tom's also got ramseyer allowed. And you have seven band. I lost county seven zero allowed to do the twitter ladder. She makes it good geomancy yellow guys. I missed the memo nicaragua goodstuff. First things first brady finished number one. It is interesting. Some of these guys finishing high. I'm surprised lamar jackson's top ten. Because he doesn't seem interested in that stuff at all but he he finished acres endorsements though okay so. Jj watt obviously russell wilson. Who's very good always. Has the right gronk beckham cam. Doodoo smith schuster prime more than he should decay metcalfe's insane athlete is young lamar jackson ten acres not in it which actually surprising baker has so many commercials.

Magicians at amg the impossible possible from compact sedans and coupes to roadsters and rugged suv's they are obsessed with squeezing every last fuel injected drp performance out of a vehicle and even though mercedes am jeeves the most successful racing team and f one.

Amg mercedes amg driving performance. Okay this is no worthy this kind of breaking shamsher toronto who's breaks a lot of nba story. Say the clippers fear. Colli leonard suffered an acl injury done for the season. That changes everything. You wins the series they listen. Utah's a good team now. Mike conley getting healthier donovan. Mitchell has some rast. utah's got the best home record. This changes a series. Like this is one of these classic. You can't hold us to yesterday's discussion. We got we have new information. Utah's gonna win this series so utah somebody three games left. Who's gonna win to utah. Gets two home games now. They're healthier the best. Total player in the series is out. He's the best defender. He's the best offensive player in late game situations Tornado that's what the clippers fear. And so that's the very latest tragedy out if you have. Acl you're out indefinitely so you had to have surgery can't play on. Twenty sale will be the eighth different all-star to miss a playoff game this year. That's the most in a season in nba history. Chris paul will be the ninth. The nba was in. So let's say. I think it's more than just condense schedule but that's part of it. The nba was trapped. Because what adam silver told the players is. If you don't wanna start till this date. The owners are going to have so much power in the next. Cba there were certain dates. That were important. You have to play a certain number of games for you know owners. Have you got to play. Like seventy games or owners get. I forget the exact wording but they get more power. There's revenue advantages to the owner. So adam silver said we're going to have to suck it up here. It's a pandemic. we're going to have a short off season. We're just gonna have to get to seventy games minimum now. A lot of the stars sat out games and a lot of people criticized for doing that but they wanted. They didn't have off seasons. They usually at one hundred twenty days even to get to the playoffs yet days now they get seventy and for the teams in the bubble like miami. They had a lot of injuries. Early lakers the teams boston. So a lot of teams denver. The last four teams had a lot of injuries. So i do think that some of it but we've seen a lot of injuries over the last three or four years. I mean the toronto raptors nba champs because of injuries klay thompson. Katie got hurt yeah. Injuries aren't new. But this is extreme. This is a lot. And i think it's a combination of guys. Just get injured and condensed schedule and coming back so quickly from the bubble and owns masked with we probably pick the worst time to start hating load management load management probably needed to be carried on for a few more and also because you have stars and secondary stars hurt. The stars that are healthy are asked to play more minutes yet. Like katie and forty eight minutes. So there's a there's a convergence of a lot of things here but They fear is out indefinitely. That completely changes the playoff series. That feels like sons jazz. By the way they were the top two seeds the end of the world they were the top two seeds today tastes like a sunny day. Like firing up the census and cooling them down with an ice cold coke. It tastes like a flaming hog bro and backyard ginks today tasteless sunday ritual. Senate never tasted this.

3/17/21 - Hour 3 - NFL Offseason Is Cookin', Some Player Evaluation, Fecal Tests & 'Spank Rooms', An Update And 'Quite A Laugh

"We had a caller yesterday. Forget her name was choose from medford long island. it was right after. I said that i don't believe that. Shawn watson and russell wilson are going get traded and that the bears are probably gonna find somebody like andy dalton and she called up and said boomer. How you put up with this geo making these definitive crazy statements. I just don't you keep your cool. You're such a class act. What he's saying old is nonsensical things. All right so she was very nice to me. It doesn't mean that you have to take it out on me right now. I'm not taking it out on you not at all. I just want your no. I'm not but she said It's it's just amazing how you're able to keep your cool. And he says oh. Oh guess who signed with the bears yesterday. Andy dalton one year ten million dollars. Russell wilson's not going to the bears. He's not going anywhere. it's just a matter of days. You're gonna hear that. He got a contract extension with the seattle seahawks. And he stay in there. I mean you telling me that russell wilson's gonna get traded like. I can't imagine that is happening now. Especially when you see moves now. The tyrod taylor's thing there was no so people understand everybody's trying to make jump to conclusions about the shawn watson tradeable thing because tyrod taylor signing you know why because they have a single quarterback on their roster outside shawn watson anyway right but adam schefter put out there and misleading tweet about the amount of money that used in his paying. Tyrod taylor said houston is giving tyrod taylor. Twelve point five million dollar a year contract. That's not true. He's getting six million which is backup money And if he has the play he has incentives up to twelve point. five million. You know. I was just thinking like you know these big. Nfl starting quarterback contracts they. They must sting when you see those at this point fought for back in one thousand nine hundred eighty but you know. The guys planted the league players. They don't you know laid it on the line for them but backup six million as backup money. That's got that's gotta hurt even more. That's backup money. Six million backup money so and all this making more money this year than phil. Simms made an entire career right. That's the type of stuff that's gotta drive. Someone like phil crazy. I'm sorry it doesn't really drive us crazy while we what we as ex players love in the fact that we're in the media covering the league We love the fact that the league is so popular and it's so popular and it's reflected. Its popularity is reflected by the the amount of money the players are making you guys have benefited on being able to cover the league and stay involved. And that's the point so we were able to do. All this by the tyrod taylor. Signing misleading tweet by adam schefter. He's not making twelve and a half million. Yes so in. tyrod. Taylor also was no other. Quarterbacks had no other quarterback. I'm with the bears. The bears basically are not bringing back trubisky even though trubisky numbers aren't all that bad. It's just that the bear fan can't take another year trubisky. And i guess they figure that andy dalton will find out Nick foles for the starting job and both are kind of the same type of player what they say about andy dalton and he was in cincinnati. I like dandy. I really did I never said that he was a top five quarterback. I never said that. He was the top ten quarterback. I always said what he was. Was you a quarterback. That's not gonna kill you but he's not going to be a quarterback that's going to ultimately reach the level of everybody else. Should i do know this when he goes out on the field Just like the dallas cowboys found out last year and just like the chicago. Bears will find out this year. He's not gonna kill them. Sure you know he is just he. He's to go out there. He's going to get everybody in the right positions. He's gonna know the offense and he's going to be very very respected teammate. Yeah so i like. Zari is the andy dalton of coal screening. Like there's gonna be some real stinkers out there most of the job most of the time you're gonna get the job done but there's going to be days you're like oh my goodness this guy stinks. But he's still you can still trust them know. That's that's the way i would put it. I mean the guy is thrown for what about thirty four thousand yards and two hundred and twenty touchdowns. I mean you know. That's worth something a lot worth ten million dollars and let me ask you a question so really when when the merry go round stops or the chairs sorted start to get filled up and you're one of these teams and you're looking at what's out there. What's available for you. You know it really comes. Down to ryan. Fitzpatrick andy dalton. These are the guys that are out there that are available to go out and play football for you supposed to do. Well this is. I m newton tyrod taylor. Yeah of yeah. It's andy dalton. I mean mitch. Trubisky still sitting out there waiting to figure out where he's going to end up going. Sam darnold gonna get traded. Who have if your bears trubisky for another year. Or andy dolan. If it's purely football. I'm probably taking trubisky okay. But if it's it's not just purely football it's also the politics of the damn sport and the fan bases and how the fan base is reacted. I know the fan base. Like i was watching on a number shows yesterday. And everybody's gotta give an opinion but this is what's left. Iq are your picking from guys who are in their mid thirties but you learn. The reaction was but they're competent players. They're incompetent right. What we see them. I did a game where two quarterbacks nobody's ever heard of before i remember yes there. No one guy was heraldic. I what did i bet the cardinals that day. I think i might have. I was so mad at that guy came. But but you know you're fired up about this but you know why the bear fan mad. They haven't had a quarterback of significance. In how long ever luchman on top of it. They got all excited about the russell. Wilson trade rumors so this is exactly what i'm talking about with the jets like this is what i've been saying for months. You had you were trevor. Lawrence is team for ninety percent of the season last year. Then you weren't then. You're at the top of the shawn watson trade list for a while then. You weren't so no matter what happens next. It's going to be a disappointment in less. Zack wilson is the guy that you drafted. He has a justin herber type here. That's the only way and the odds of that happening aren't great or you. Keep sam darnold because nobody else wants him. And you trade the second pick and you add even more pigs and you rebuild this team the way that the forty nine rebuilt there. That's what i would do you know and saying that football team is trying to build their team. Keep saying draft as many guys as you can use all the pics that those are shots on goal. My friend those are shots on that. And that's how you rebuild your football team and maybe again though. Is the jet fan going to be patient like so for me as a ranger fan. 'cause the only thing i can really compare it to because rangers admitted to us. We were starting over. You spend all this money on season tickets. We're getting rid of all of our top end pliers and we're going to try to start over and that's when you know the chorus of anxiety and guys fans get mad is when they don't really start seeing things happening fast enough. Yeah it's one of the reasons. Why david quinn is under fire from ranger fans. Yeah you put him on nazi. I didn't put him on the hot day. Play understand that he's got all sorts of issues that he's trying to deal with some of the team. Stop listening to him. And i believe that hot seat. I know put them in another boomer forced hockey referee s. But the point is that douglas is the most important person. I believe this off season in the nfl because of the wealth of draft picks and because of having the number two pick which after trevor lawrence only is the most important pick in this draft. Yeah but after the number one pick who still there are a number of guys that a lot of teams will would love to go up and get at number two. Yeah there are hall of fame fascinating to see what he does right. I'm also at this point. There's no more like i don't i have no idea. It was just been going real question is does he want to restart the quarterback salary clock clock. It's allard clad. That's a big one. And i'm telling you the gift from the kid from. Byu's ac wilson. I told you a month ago. And i'll tell you it again. He is about as accurate as i've seen his his tape. Even though it may be against them suspect competition is pretty impressive. It is about as accurate thrower as you're going to get e can make all the throws and he does do some little goofy things on the field brett farve ish which is fine Then all of a sudden you have one. Nfl scout come out and say oh well he's a brat he's a rich kid because his uncle founded jet blue or something you know has got money in his family's got money but also goes to byu instead of going to utah. The whole family is utah. Fans he goes to byu because the utah coach gives a scholarship to a kid and he can't offer it to zacks as acting has to go to byu and the family starts singing the byu fight song at a picnic when he decides to go. There was charley casserly. Who had the problem with. Here's the thing. Humbleness below average brad factor above average. Which is all a bunch of girls. Billionaire billionaires produce brats. He's a brat dates. Only pretty women brat. Where's chains brat definitely brat fact that ten. He's gonna be taken down one of these guys. I can't wait to start thinking these guys. But what i can't stand is when people right crap like that. And they have no idea who the kid is and then all of a sudden. You see the quarterback coach from byu the head coach from byu his linebacker on byu. All basically tell you what a great kid. This kid is all liars. He's a brat. I know i've been doing this for thirty years. I could sniff out a brat just by going up blindfolded and sniffing pass rack. Put a brat in front of me. I could sniff them. Just based on their phones okay. I cannot wait. You does every year. There's one guy he takes you know going gonna take somebody this taking somebody down right. He i mean he. He's going to whether it's trae lance or it's zack wilson. Or it's mac. Jones casualties going after somebody. You'd better watch your ass. Let's go to our buddy. Nick and huntington who is not a part of eddie's cuckold. What's going on nick. good morning. Good morning guys when he got. I got an idea for your commercial real rocky music. Playing our walking back into the studio crew is back. We could use that but al. Here's the issue with that. Is they needed quick and not coming back for another couple of weeks. They wanted to get this done next week. But that is a good idea and we are going to use that footage of al coming back in. You know posted on social media. But i don't think we can use it as a as a commercial. It's not bad though. Nikki thinking he's thinking you tossed ideas you also can't use the rocky theme. Can't use that either. Yeah unless we pay for it which we could. Maybe the boys are back in town is a little bit cheaper than the rocky theme steady expensive two words for you public domain okay. Yeah i mean. I don't know i just don't send them clips of funny stuff that we did and just put that together to slice it. Altogether you know as opposed. Sydney are acting. Yeah that's a great point. Just take some show. Highlights dopey promos here creggan evans promos. It's basically a piece so there's show what it is. Yeah i know. I fought that battle so many time. We're gonna have to wait chernoff to retire for me to that battle again. He does not. There's no he won't change his mind on. You won't doing it's ten seconds. Are we breakdown. Shepherd's pie chris and hopewell chris what's happening. Hey how are you guys. can you hear me now. We got your chris. Go ahead all right so anyway. I was a about twenty or so years. I went to the culinary institute and we don't make with ground beef. You make with lamb and you take a lamb leg bone it and you make a stock and all of that and you make a stew and then you put the potatoes potatoes on top after you. Put the carrots and all that stuff in it and it's delicious here in america they done it with Ground beef a lot. And you know to me i laugh but anyway. That's how i every time someone gets so comfortable and then they do. Yeah and just so you know i. I can't stand lamb. I hate lamb. That's why like the ground beef and the shepherd's pie like lamb. Because you think. I'm meeting a baby sheep. That has nothing to do with that. Just like the taste of it euros guides well-done stakes but i'm not. I don't want pork veal steak fine. Just not doing the lamb thing all right. So the the apple lamb with the jelly and all that crap mint jelly now. What about the like a lamb. Now second says lamb know what the giro no no lamb. None for the giro meet with. Lamb is delicious not no. There's some people i've when they can't even cook lamb in their house because their dogs get ill from the smell of lamb cooking really. Yeah there are some people that it completely turns the dog off and then there will be times with the dog. Won't we'll get upset anytime the ovens turned on. Because it thinks you're making lamb again. Where the hell. They hear that mess dog message boards. You're on dog message. Board dog facebook groups. That sort of thing. Yeah it's it's Zig greyhounds specific or just dog owner. It seems the while i saw a greyhound one. But i believe it is not dog specific. I think dogs do not like the smell of cooked lamb. It turns them off freaks. And i tell you. I you know facebook and facebook groups and stuff. I'm so far away from that. And i feel like you are just completely drowning in these things like dog owner facebook groups bradley beach facebook groups. Yeah now are. Most of those people are posting on the dog one. Is it like positive stuff or negative positive yet no negativity. We liked to because all of the dogs. You want to be happy. You most the most specific facebook group. I belong to is how to get rid of hookworm in greyhounds. That's a facebook. it's a full group. Foale group so hook was is a thing from dogs coming off the track yet. And they're they're they're resistant to medication. So it's it's quite a battle so where it's a very specific group. There's groups for everything out there so whimsey has hookworms. she does. Yeah and okay. Well it takes a long time as they say at least a year about a year and almost and then they come cheap poops out while it's a parasite you don't see worms. Don't see it in their it's in their intestines. Okay so the only way you're going to know going get like a sonic lamb or whatever you get a fecal test. A little fecal tests dog poop. All righty best. Bet you get some calls when people cooked lamb and turn their dogs off. I've dropped off both dog and baby poop at a counter in my life. I've done both of those things. Yup which is worse of them received very very nicely because they you know. I i feel strange doing it. You know but dropping. The process of collecting it to me was not as bad. Because it's it's your dog. it's your baby. It's like you know you're just all in with that stuff. But the thing that i had i was had anxiety about was like handing over like the poop to somebody you know. That's the issue. I over anything else that anybody else like. Oh yeah that made you feel uncomfortable. Oh yes you wanna get into it. Yes i've had to hand over there you go. I did yeah multiple times because of infertility stuff. Yeah yeah and that is that when they're small. Talk when you're handing someone a copy your semen the weirdest thing in the world. So weather's nice out there and godlike holds the specimen he's like all right. I know you bringing it in from a room there or from home. Yes so there. You guys really want to do this. I'll do it So no you go to the place you produce there. And then the worst part about the one place that i had to go to was that you had to walk past every body to go to where the collection sample so. I actually did like an al dukes suggestion box thing once at this place i was like you know. Can you put the spank room. Closer to the specimen drop-off because that walkies humiliated. Because everybody knows what you did in there. It's the walker spank. Everybody knows. I used to make sure that. I would have a coat with me even if it was in the summertime so i could hide the specimen as i'm walking past at every nurse every person in the waiting room on my way to the guy you know right so and then it's like it's funny you have to write down occupation on this sheet as you handed over. Sorta what you're right. I i wrote radio talk show host and the guy collecting. It was not a listener. So i had then. He's asking me questions as he's taken feeling like you know Because i don't want to lie. It's just like you could. You don't have to write radio talk show host. Well that's what my occupation is you can just say broadcaster either way if you put one of the same thing. They're going to be asking the same questions. I'm telling you either way. So then i'm answering. He's trying to do the small talk. And i'm like you know this is just. This is not fun. it's it really is but it's a human thing and you know what i'm saying. It's a human thing it's a human thing get all and it's not walking with the yet but you know man sets not a thing. It's i just. I for whatever reason i felt like shame should feel shame i. I don't know what to do something beautiful. I understand that. But i don't have you. You've never done this. You don't know but like when you're finished with that and then you're walking past every body and you're holding your transporting the cup of it. Yeah it's i felt shame in a way like i. Everybody that. I just did that right. There were sitting so somebody else in. That's bank right before you went in. I see you don't know right. You don't know that had to be it was take you well. I mean i've done it. It's been multiple times multiple. there's been multiple. She had to do this multiple times. So how was on average. How long does it take a finish the job. I probably say you're talking from. Like when i walk in there and then i got a set everything up and then you gotta right on the copper you talking about the actual. I'm talking about the actual act like how long i'm in the room or the actual act but the whole the whole you open up the thing so the whole thing you know you you get into the room and they give you like those you know the dog pee pads put on the seat so like when you're sitting if you wanna choose to sit it's like you have your have your own thing that's not been used before dim the lights a little music you gotta set the music and lights no music and lights now no using light one of the time i did it there was a nurse in somebody else having full on conversation outside the door she have a sexy voice now they were they were talking about like paperwork and stuff and i could get you could not get into the mood. I can't believe dr jenkins didn't fill this out again. Well you know it's dr jenkins you know. I'm her moving along. I mean you know very well that this is the spank and it might be somebody in your trying to get. Don't stopping every conversation in front of bankruptcy trying to get something done. It's just it's tough. I haven't talked a lot about all of that because it's uncomfortable and we still are going through all of it but it's a lot that goes on is it is. It is worse for the woman that it is for the man off into a spank room. So i could that be yet but i mean there's layers of all this. You know what i'm saying. I mean i'm not. Would they have to go through his. I mean it's craziness with different shots and this and that the examinations and insure you know so we just show up and you have to do that foreign environment but very sterile environment. It sounds like yeah but now like any time. I go through so all the different doctors offices. I think i've been in four diff- yeah four different locations right that i've done this. Was there any location over more comfortable for you. Yeah yeah the last one was great because the the specimen room. This was the one That's encomium the komax locations a good one. Because it's it's a brand new building so you feel like that you know you don't you don't you. Don't feel the ghosts when you and one whereas the first stony brook. Yeah right the one stony brook i went into. I felt like have been people collecting samples since the seventies in that room. You know just like there's a lot has been a lot of action in this world. Magazines left behind. Yeah there's nobody uses those anymore. You know there's a stack of videos and non flat screen. Tv who's using this sears. Catalog swimsuit at dish. You're just doing on your own phone. Come on on. What are we talking about phone so so yes so you have that but no one really really nice and the specimen drop-off right across the hall better but just a little bit like not directly just a little bit walkout bruno. Hey how you doing paperwork making sure right you know. And that's the thing you worry about like the hopefully. It's not a mixup. you gotta make sure that everything's done. You bring your id because the last thing you want is someone else's baby you know you don't want that has happened Yeah unfortunately times yes. Yeah so anyway. Yeah there's so. Maybe one day i'll maybe one day down the road i'll go all into it. I'll just empty all of it out. Yeah for spy to the spank from. Yeah i'll I'll do that but today's not that. Okay each the morning. Show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo and hopefully everybody hold says we get jerry. Recco update sorry relate here Jared martha we'll give you some time here to tell us about what happened in sports not a good night for well not a good finish for your knicks. I should say lane kickout top. Seth wide open three ball by curry's at era to sixers have taken lead. Seth curry with his four three tobias download ticket out doc rivers talked about that prior to the game and it worked out last night. Tobias harris thirty point seventh carry the three there at four on the night sixers a big fourth quarter beat the next ninety nine ninety six as the knicks make three losses and four games all two very good teams though Tom tom oh they had a lead going into the fourth quarter. Philly jumped on him early. And that really hurt. They knocked on a couple of threes to close the gap right away to start the fourth We we knew it'd be a hard fought game so that was that was basically. Hey says they're trying hard to find their groove again. You're on the road in ill started. You're coming back off the break. So that's a challenge in itself in the loss. Julius randle had nineteen nineteen for alec. Burks off the bench and rj. Barrett had seventeen knicks magic. Tomorrow night the knicks right now in eighth place as your bunch of jumbled teams between basically six through ten right now in the east. Also the lakers beat the t. Wolves one thirty seven one twenty one twenty five twelve and twelve for lebron. You had the blazers over the pelicans one twenty five one. Twenty four fifty for damian lillard also the rockets make it seventeen straight losses falling to the hawks. One nineteen to one. Oh seven nets and pacers. Tonight from indiana will have it on. The fan nets at one five in a row and thirteen of fourteen. Couple more from shock with conan o'brien on his podcast. The first one is where i see. That conan establishes his laugh as shack talking about being a champion to the mountaintop mountaintop. Three times in a row three generations in a row. I was the king. Shaquille o'neal lucas. Wow is good to have someone around like that lance like that you know that conan. Bitcoin is a lot of funnier stuff than that in his life. You know listen. Roman his life the dice apollo but shaquille o'neal kissed. He's not that funny. I mean each here is and here's the other one that i thought was interesting Where the question comes up a shack one of these flatter type of guys. You know how they say. The world is like this. When i'm driving in my car. I don't suddenly go like this way. Are you going to start last thing. i'm just saying. I'm joe from here to california here to montana and new york and not at one time that i did this or when i fly the china and i one time that the plane go. I don't know why. I find that so amusing. Maybe perhaps i felt the same thing. Yeah yeah so. That was shack with conan. O'brien on his podcast. Whatever seeing the alert commend. What is this. This is hockey okay. Sabre sabres right okay. Well why not. They've lost twelve straight games. That goes yes Leonard williams got three or sixty three million dollars from the giants. Forty five million in guaranteed money. You've got that Also this trent williams deal with the niners won thirty eight for six years so he's not going anywhere. You get the patriots. Signing tied in hunter henry the lawsuit against shawn watson which he is basically calling bs on This is from a woman. The attorney says he did some wrongdoing with her and he says he can't wait to clear his name as they were already asking for a six figure. Payday if you will The yankees beat the astros eight two three friends Sufferance going door. Clint frazier hit a home. Run as did the stockman mike talk men and garrett cole. Three two thirds to runs Two home runs. He gave up and struck out. Five jacob degrom four innings one run to his six strikeouts midst. Beat the astros. Yesterday by the score of eight to three here was the solid. We have a really good team and we obviously here tradition. I'm working on it. How did he go out there and get warnings if you went through fifteen more in the bullpen to get that pitch. Count up you know. I think i got two left before we start the season. So that's the goal. That is the goal and speaking of goals. Here's dominic smith he homered. This is this is pretty This is ball's. I think we have a really good team in if we can take them one at a time when the world series then we can Really start to think about building something like a dining. I'm always somebody like that. He's having a good springs out of build a dynasty boomer. I don't know you know they. They practice game seven of the world series. And you know maybe this is like bleeding into some of the things that they're talking about now. Let's be positive like marcus. Stroman right as e all he does is talk about his you know his workouts and how great he feels and how things are awesome and how. He's going to be totally positive. Maybe dominic smith is taking a page out of that book off on him. I knew he was going there when he said you know we went. You really well. No once he said in the middle of the cut once we win the world series. We can start working on. And i said don't say don't say it don't say and he goes dynasty touching the money right there. God that's rolling around in the money guy. Though i oh hundred is the best but dynasties in santa's you do you think that we are going to get. Is that official or nonofficial. Do you think we're going to get a designated hitter. Charlie the second the same answer for his at two months ago two weeks ago six months i see them. Come into an agreement right before the season starts. Yes all right well you if you put that in right before the season at this point what are we doing yeah. It's pretty silly. Don't you think that would have changed business or at least the way. Some teams did business in the off season. Had they known sure. Of course but the mets are one of those teams that are still in a situation where yes it could help. It could help him. They would benefit from it. That is true. I don't care about jerry team. Yes i want it. I totally understand. That's fine Capitals beat the islanders. Three to one the isles had their nine game. Winning streak snapped alex. Ovechkin scores in this game moves past. Phyllis zito for sixth all-time goal number seven eighteen. Six straight wins for washington. And you wanted to know about Matlock land so. I'll give you the semi latin goal. You heard earlier. The miles would goal where the score was cut short. This was a semi vaatainen game tangle. Here's a chance for between the circles. Risk go now's a little better a little little not what you're looking for it. I'm not sure that's got to be tough. I wonder co like puts his hand over his mouth so yes and the devils one three two. They snapped their eleven game. Home winning streak buffalo out a yeah losing streak as we found out the sabers just fired their head coach ralph kroger and so we move on and the rangers tonight. Take on the flyer all right. Thank you jerry. Each morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo he did remind me of something and the surround that the h. thing that in order to have the d. h. according what he thinks and i think this is also does make sense. Because i think they're tied together in order to get the national league. You know the players have got a say. Okay let's expand the playoffs right. That was there. Was those things. We're tied together right. So i i and he thinks that that would ruin the sport and i understand that you think that that may ruin the sport. I don't agree with that. That's the only thing i'd couple days. Yeah that's the only thing that's gonna make the sport more. That's what i would say. And i like the expanded playoffs. You know i loved. I don't know how you know how you felt because we sat here as we were going into it and that was super wildcard weekend for the nfl this year. yup initially. I didn't love the extra playoff teams in the nfl because the nfl's so popular. And i didn't want to mess with it. But then i ended up. Liking wild card weekend was great with baseball. I love the fact that they were more teams involved. And i wish they would continue that. That's how you get the sport more popular more regions having a shot to compete in the postseason. You can make more money from tv perspective when you out just like the nba had play the nba all star game. It's popular to a lot of fans out there. It's popular tv broadcasters. And that's the same thing that this would be for major league baseball so i wanted the minister regular season. Of course. I also want to give my team a chance to get in if they have a little bit of a bad start or something. I don't want their season and go by the wayside. If the first two months of the year they're horrendous. Sure one hundred. Sixty two games seizing time to make it up all that stuff. Things change all the time in these sports. Yeah they do and we'll see. I hope there's more playoffs coming in. And i'll be in the future in the next collective bargaining agreement aisles. Run through some of these crazy topic. Calls a larry in utica. What's going on. Larry doing man. What's up well. I wanna say when you're talking about when you're going through them you totally places. So what did you think of my.

You're you're getting confused henry. I went to an infertility clinic. Specific infertility clinic in stony in stony brook. And there's no window in there that i knock on. Its there's a toilet. There is a black leather chair and had to walk through the whole thing in order to go and hand the sample to a guy like this is my experience at this place. You can't tell me. I don't know what i'm talking about 'cause i lived in and i and i might have done like four five samples in particular place to cool shady place that's all it's not a shady place that plays actually got us. Our daughter is that dr. That god is sabrina. So it's not a shady place is totally we love. The doctor was great. it's not a shady place. It just so happened that the spank room and the specimen drop off were in two different location. That's not good so there was for me. There was a walk of shame. Greg size lip greg. what's happening. Hey how you doing. Good i year. Some good updates from the mets. Let's go mets right it. So i've got a a wild story for you. I'm thirty eight. I'm only a couple of years younger than Then boomers nephew randy and my daughter's thirteen now. So about fourteen years ago. I go to a clinic for some reason. My wife's obgyn. So that i had to go and so mind you at the time. Probably twenty one twenty two. I walk into a room. That's probably no bigger than like fifteen by seventeen and there's just an old woman out the window and gives me a cup. A guy comes out of the the only other room somebody goes in there and cleans it and goes all right. You're up so i go in there and this young kid and they're showing me a drawer of like there's magazines and videotapes in and this one and this is just the couch in there. I'm not getting like i'm gonna sit on this thing and after like five minutes. I my isn't happening. So i walked out and i knock on the window. I take them in here with me and help me out. And she was like you could do anything you want but sex and then come back to me so they actually let my fiance come in with with me. Do our business. I feel the cop which shares a wall to wear the actual old woman is that collects the sample and then after we walk out to go into this room with their as. She's analyzing it with me sitting there like it's time to go. I'm like what the hell places this and what just happened right. And here's the thing but it's not what the hell kind of places a lot of places that are legit they just need fresh samples and you have to produce. The amazing thing is though seeing all these stories is unfortunately how many people have to go through this. Yeah and that and that's really why are you doing it. You're doing it because you found the woman that you love and you want to have a child with that woman. Sure and you will go to any length to make sure that happens. Both she is doing it. And you're doing absolute and there's nothing and i know that these stories are kind of weird and they're funny awkward and it's great to hear all that stuff but there's a reason behind all right. We're not just doing this in our spare time. Like i'm not going to some office and it costs money. It takes time you have to make sure things are lined up. You have to make sure your wife is healthy. I mean there's a million but these but these stories you know this is part of it. Shed some light. I mean put some funny spin on. It is what it is because there as grueling as it is emotionally on physically especially for the woman There are some times that you can laugh at it. You can see the bright side you can laugh added when things work out for you. The thing about it is is you and gina. Have a beautiful daughter. And when you come home you realize the miracle of medicine and how things can come to fruition. Sure and how lucky you can become. Oh absolutely no one hundred percent. I appreciate that but there are funny so you know a lot of people go through this and don't talk about it. It's just one of those things sharing it with us. Well there's a lot more to share. But i'm not going to right now but there are a bunch of my friends that i've talked to that we were doing this at the same time would not even talk to each other about it. And then finally like was guy. He's still out in pittsburgh. He was talking to me about his. Spank rome experience. And he was he was having a tough time in there and the nurse actually knocked on the door goes as it going in there like. How do you think it's going in here. If i'm still adheres dot com. What do you mean you gotta leave me alone to get the job done now. I gotta start all over again. I will say this. I don't know if i could do it really. I really don't now. If i could do it. I guess if i had to i would. It's one. I made the had to and i really really you know we have to have a thing because there there are times like you gotta remember so depending on the procedure in which you're doing if there are times like you've got no choice but to do it by that's it you have to. We have to have a fresh sample today to be able to do this particular thing so if you are unable to do that then you're the whole thing is crumbling. So so the women can all commiserate together about all the different steps that they have to go through And the emotional swings. That i'm sure that are associated with it. Yeah yeah the men you knuckleheads all have to worry about dealing with the situation and then having to do what you're doing in the spank room right exactly. Yeah and i and i hope. I hope i've seen my last spanked. I'll just put talent. I hope that. I've seen my last one each the morning show with boomer esiason gregg giannotti boomer and geo.

Sports radio studios. It is a distinct honor. And pleasure to be sitting in for chris with my dear friend rob parker once again and rob the last time i sat in with you. I actually thought it was going to be your final show on fsr what you said if you think that i thought was going to pretty much end your career. So we've we've survived our one we survive we've survived. I've learned my lesson as i get older fred. You know. i've had my moments in in the sports business in his career right now. I think we were playing your games. And what are the clues you gave. I actually thought we're gonna have to dump it at yes. We survived it all those well and as always it is great to be with fred rogan. Who was a tv legend. And i say i was a kid. Fred knows this. I've told the story of million times. But my late on. Beverly live here in los angeles and used to come visit. Her and i used to watch fred on. Kabc nbc channel. Four here in los angeles and then the comeback out here finally to work here and live here and to be friends with fred and do his radio show on my radio. Show him on. Tv show going rogan as well. So it's always great for it to be on the radio with you. I appreciate that robin. It is good to be with you. All right so andy. Dalton made a comment today now. We know that justin fields is the star in the making right. Well you know. We know that when the bears selected justin fields. That's their guy and that's the guy they need to build around and that's the guy that everybody wants to see. Play is ready to play is another story but everybody wants to see justin fields play because we need it now. We want it now years ago many years ago. You select quarterback ally aaron rodgers. You sit on the bench for a few years you clipboard. You learn the game. You finally get your opportunity not so much today you grab a guy and you expect them to go in and you expect them to play right now this very second and then learn on the job which i personally do. Not think is conducive for an nfl team. That wants to win. Because you've got a guy. Learning on the job and quarterback is the most difficult position to play but nonetheless people want justin fields in. They want him to play. Why would the bears drafted well. They also acquired veteran andy dalton now going into camp. It was pretty much considered. That andy dalton was going to be the guy that was gonna start by he would start and at some point feels would get infrared right right and you know. We'll we'll ride. Andy as long as we can here if we're out of it in week. Four or five or we don't look very good now. It's time to make the move but we are a competitive. Nfl franchise and we do want to win. Andy dalton can get us there. That's going to be our guy until we decide otherwise. But here's what antidote and had to say. Today he said look. I think justin fields terrific man. And i think he's going to have a very good career. I think we have the sound for it. I think we do before we hit it. Okay but you know what eighty dollars said. I'm the man. This is my job. Now let's hear from adult. I know who i am. I know who. I was created to be and know. We're my identity lies and so do i want the fans behind me and this team and all that kind of stuff yes. I want them behind. Justin absolutely Do i. that's not my focus. I can't focus on all that right now Like i said before jetsons going to have his time and justin is going to have a great career but right now it's my time my focus on being the best player. I can be for this team. And do everything i can to help this team win. What's wrong with that. But what's wrong with saying that. He's absolutely right. What do you think he showed up to sit. No i get it. I don't think that he has to talk about the other player and tell him when his time is. And that's what. I mean for debts. Where if you just want to say my focus is about playing. I'm going to be ready to play when they asked me to go out there. I'm going to do all i can. I have something left in his right arm. I can play quarterback here. I'm not concerned about anybody else. Telling justin field that is not his time says who who is andy dalton to say when his time is fred advantage new and his time was he's still being cincinnati clock out in cincinnati rupp. If i'm andy dalton. I'm saying the exact same thing. This is my time no. It's not your todd. If it was your time you wouldn't have a one year contract you wouldn't have been jettisoned out of dallas. This was your time. it's his time for one year. Is that what it is. Hey he's a competitive athlete. Rod or wanna hear him mention justin. Feel god's sake. I don't wanna hear one peep out of andy. Dalton your release acting so me your playoff resume. That says that it's your time. Your journey men. You're at the end of the role at the end of your career. You fortunate at somebody's still wants to pay you to be starting quarterback in the national football league. Just come prepared be ready to play. Don't tell me who's time it is right now. It looks like to me andy. Dog can't tell time. Andy said this is the end of his journey. His journey is still ongoing. No not rob. His journey is still ongoing. He can't go in there with the mindset. Just going to hold down the ford here until they kicked me out. I'm just going to go out there and play until either. I screwed up so badly they sit me or get hurt. He's gotta go off there. He's an nfl quarterback. He's got to go out there with the belief that he's going to win that he's going to lead the team and i don't see anything it's like. Don't put your name in my mouth. it's fine. He was asked a question about the fan reaction. And he's absolutely right support. That'd be great. Should support justin feel. No no the. He should not talk about just in fields. You don't get drafted would have picked that high. And not think he's not gonna play for it. So why even talk about that. You know what your role is. They didn't draft him in tenth round. And maybe he might get a cup of coffee sweet roll with the bears. He's gonna play. His time is coming have to you. Don't have to address that. Or i'm here to play as long as they had me as a starting quarterback. I'm gonna be ready every sunday. I'm gonna give my all until they ripped the uniform off me and throw me out of here. That's all i want to hear. From andy dalton. He was asked a question about the reaction and fan reaction. Rob let me ask you. This is the guy that's covered sports for many many years. Some have nicknamed you methuselah. So if andy dalton somehow some way gets behind center and leads the bears and their six weeks in this is highly improbable and highly unlikely. Their six weeks in and they're undefeated. I mean there's a train of thought that they'll lose their first game of the year but let's say he does that. Are they going to turn around and go. Okay just fields on the job training. We've got a shot here. You get in there and let's just see what happens. I don't buy that. I think he isn't established. Nfl quarterback and he does know how to play in the nfl and if he can guide this team as far as he can before he can't he needs to play on that all about this justin fields and right now. I'm trying to win here. Coaching staff is trying to win. An organization is trying to put fans in the stands. A city wants them to win. We can take our time with justin fields. We're good here now if anti goes in and stinks up the joint well then you have your answer. Don't you but they wouldn't have signed the guy in paid them if they just thought he was a placeholder even for a year that position is too important. You're just gonna bring anybody in their fail. Justin it's your turn. no no. He's absolutely right in what he saying. He wants to fans to embrace him. Just no you don't. How are you going to embrace the guy if he's on the sidelines fred. You're talking out of both sides of your mouth swat. Where if he's not on the field. I don't have i'm not going to embrace. The guy was not playing. Okay bryce young. That doesn't make any sense. Rice young went to school in southern california. He's now the quarterback at alabama. He sat on the bench last year. He didn't play mack. jones played. Bryce young already has a dollars in endorsements and he hasn't played one second yet. So yeah you can embrace somebody. Who's not playing. Yeah but but wait a minute. But he's on his way to being a he not getting that because he's on the sidelines he's going to be the starting quarterback at alabama and that's what comes with it. My point is fans. Don't embrace the backup quarterback unless the starting quarterback stinks and we know we've seen the andy dalton movie. It's not a pretty picture. Fred we've seen. It runs. they he's stopgap. His name shouldn't be dalton on the back. Say stopgap now that's really what he is Maybe there's a rewrite on the movie maybe you're right and you say you've never seen this before. Let me give you two words quarterback controversy seen this before. I'm talking about the idea. Andy dolan is going to stick his chest out until everybody. It's my time in chicago. Really really come on andy. you're at the end. You know what i. Hey he's longer two threads so long that can brush his teeth without even opening his mouth. That's a long as you know you do not have to do that. You do not have to sit here and disparage a man. Who's losing his teeth. It's not necessary at his age. It's just not. I look at the other way. Be proud. stick out your chest. It's your job now. it is your job. Hold onto that job as long as you can. What are you gonna do. Rob if the bears are eight one with andy dalton a quarterback. What are you gonna do. He shouldn't say yeah. I'm the guy right. Now he's the guy until see otherwise. Then we see that with fitzpatrick. Right you remember got hot. He had a couple of games putting always turns into a pumpkin. You know what. You're going to get andy. Dones not gonna be eight and one fred you know it. The bears no it. Everybody knows it in. Nfl america in ain't going to happen. And if they are eight and one is because their defense is over the top excellent it will have nothing to do with andy dalton. And my point is he doesn't have to concede. I'm the starting quarterback as long as they tell me i am. I'm gonna be ready every sunday. I'm trying to win game for the bears and whatever they decide after that is fine with me that that's a realistic approach and take not a kid. Sit on the side. And when i'm done away way for you to come over because that ain't happening well no that's not going to happen. No he's not gonna wait for him to come over. They're going to send him out. Justin feels and push andy dalton off the field. No and he's not waving them in. That won't happen. But i i really think. In this scenario you're overreacting just a little bit and i think it's a nuance i think. It's a question of semantics. It's fine andy. Dalton did not disparage just field in his remarks. And i don't think any of our listeners will think he did he did. He said wait over there on the side. Hey homie way. Until i'm done and then your time will come. He said his time is now. I don't think i may now. I i don't think he said hey homey a homey home. We don't play that have right. I don't think i'm just saying. And i think that our listeners will understand. There's a difference and there's a new one here between a guy who's got the job a guy that's speaking out guys fighting really for his. Nfl career and disparaging his teammate. I think there's a distinct difference and rob. I have to tell you. I think that our listeners are going to agree with me. Eight seven seven nine nine six six hundred sixty nine eight seven seven ninety nine on fox. I think they'll agree with me. I don't want to hear from andy dalton talking about it's his time it ain't his time he's on borrowed time is what he's on then he's still got time all right. We'll take your calls next.

This makes rob parker little misty. Little misty eh. goal-heros crew's coming to you live from the fox sports radio studios okay rob aside from the fact that i saw you got a little misty. I'd just at the thought of the golden girls cruise again. Yes they're ready to sail in twenty twenty two. How many people. How many people on that cruise with you do you think are still alive. May maybe have the best part about the golden girls. Could you have to worry about getting anybody pregnant for. that's the best all right. So the question is andy. Dalton speaks out today and basically. I think he does absolutely nothing wrong. Nothing rob on the other hand has taken offense to what he suggested so now. Let's hear what you think about. The bears current quarterback go ahead. Rob eight seven seven ninety nine or fox's telephone number ryan in arizona urania couple on tv theme so thursday. What's up ryan. Hey what's up guys. love the show. Hope you're having a good day are you. I don't have any problem with what he said. And here's why Seasons nfl football players are at the top of the pyramid. they are alpha males. And if andy dalton says anything other than you know. It's his job and you know the youngster can get it when he gets it later down the road but for right now it's his you know. These guys are shorts. Mandal smell blood in the water. Andy dalton done divided his career so he got. He's got to say that you know why he doesn't have to talk about feels and talk about weight over on the side and and your time is not now. He was the first round pick. What do you mean it's time not now. Most teams now start quarterbacks right away right away and that's at a very good thing no but i'm saying but that's the norm. Now we saw aaron rodgers. Sit for three seasons fred. We don't see that anymore. You know that you're absolutely right. But look what happened to aaron rodgers after sitting for a couple of years you throw these guys in to the fire immediately. They are learning on the job and unless they get awfully lucky and everything falls into place. You're not gonna win. And the goal is to win brandon in dallas. You're on the odd couple of fox sports radio. What's up brandon. Gentlemen tonight doing good. How are you doing good man. Doing good rob. That has to be one of the funniest jokes on this show. Ek started which one the golden girls joe. Golden girls chuckle chuckling. Going to admit fred he ribs me all the time but fred knows joy. It's a great show. But i agree with. I agree with rob on this one. You know it takes a lotta goal for somebody like andy dalton and make a comment like that. He's definitely on borrowed time this year. You know the signing him in mayes failsafe on case. They weren't able to get one of these quarterbacks well they got the one that they wanted and he's gonna be playing by the middle of the year. You know andy. Dalton can't even stay healthy for a sixteen game season seventeen games. he's at this point. You know last year and he got popped one good time and he's around three or four games dollars moment. Let him have his moment now. He's a backup that's what he is now if he was still that guy for any being cincinnati. That's the point is once you start with dallas last year and now he's in chicago. You start to bounce around like that. You're on the end. Just you know what. Stand in the corner in the locker room. Don't say anything and hope they don't recognize you. Don't put metal work that's solid thinking. That's what you want from the guy that your quarterback even for one game stand in the corner and don't let anybody even know you're there. Don't you remember the homeless guy at. Usc was work. It out with the football team was a defensive bag. Abandoned quarterback dedi realize it until he asked for his number remember. Didn't like the number that all right guys like five foot two and a gave number eighty five. That was that was a red flag. That was a red flag randy in seattle. Your nehad couple fox sports radio. What's up randy. I guys rob. Listen i know that you excel and finding things to be offended by it but This is a stretch even for you man. what are you talking about. I'm not saying you can't be confident. And as long as i have job but to say that the kids should wait on the side and is not his time. He was earliest round pick. Wendy it is time earlier. You said says who well the answer is the coaching staff. They says who right they. They said that adult is the starter and field. I'm welcome but right now. If andy dalton show jan you know what i think we need to be randy and as a co host base complete and total sense. randy's busy in seattle. he's gita naptime. appreciate the call.

Well let's find out from somebody that really does understand a man that played in the canadian football league the national football league a hall of famer. Let's bring on warren moon and warren. Thanks for jumping on the show today. Me on how you guys doing. Warren how are you doing great man. I'm getting ready to go out and have a nice big stake in Off this phone call love that. How do you cook and where are you going. That's what i want to know. I'm a medium guy and We have a great steakhouse up here in seattle called daniels daniels broiler. And that's one of my favorite places ago. So that's where i'm going tonight. Got been there. And you know what i like. My butterfly cut medium. Well just a little pink. Is that not bad. That's good to pink is good. That's what i like. I like the rib. I i'm not a big fillet guy. Like rib eye has little more flavor to it. Yes and juicy no doubt rob you wanna share anything else about your butterfly steak. My steak butterfly art. It's all good all right we got. We got some quarterback questions. Ask you go ahead for it. I just want to start with this war in because we just discussed it just to get your take. Andy dalton came out today and said i'm the guy in chicago You should root for justin fields. His time will come but right now. I'm the man now. Rob took offense to that and said he should never mentioned the other quarterback. What do you think. I think he should i think he said he wants to. He wants to fans root for both of them which they wish they should and they're going to both play a lot here in the preseason these next to ball games so You want the fans to be rooting for those guys and then somewhere along the line they're gonna make a decision on who's going to be the starter whether it's dalton or whether it's going to be feels and then he's going to be the guy but i understand he's thinking they when he came in and signed with them they told him he was a starter so right now he feels like it's his job to lose so that's why he said it's his time so it's up to him whether he loses the job or not to justin feels he's just gotta go out there and play well and you know he's on borrowed time on time but If he plays well it allows justin feels to get more time just to to watch and learn and and not have to be rushed into a situation. 'cause they out with the rams the first game which is a you know very good defense If andy dalton can somehow get them through the first few games where they're like three and one or two and two. I mean that's not a bad deal for their with the way their schedule is set up right now. How about the patriots bill. Belichick cazin announced. Who star is going to be. I just feel like cam. Newton has to be the starter. He's not he probably shouldn't be on the team at this point. Where were you on that. But if you're the patriots. Do they made a lot of moves. Warren in the off season a lot of people spent a lot of money. Debt seemed seemed like moves. You make to get a rookie quarterback in so. I'm a little confused. Well sometimes it is rob because you want to get as much talent around a young quarterback as you can. That's what makes a young quarterback. I have success because if your defense is playing really good and if you can run the football and your offensive line is decent. Then you're young quarterback doesn't have a whole lot put on on his plate and you can just go out there and pretty much manage the game so that might have been part of the thinking but also they just knew. They had to upgrade their talent level. They just weren't very talented football team last year and still finished seven and nine so Opt out guys from from cova last year that have come back and then you also have the guys that they picked up in the off season through free agency. I think this team to really be solid if if they get great quarterback playing. That's where cam newton comes in. How about real quick. I wanna follow a mac jones. Give me your take on mack jones. Is he ready to be the starting quarterback for the patriots. You know you just never know. Rookies ready We we've seen in one little sample size of him against second teamers last week and i thought he did really well especially in the in the hurry up offense that they put him in he. He make quick decisions something he did it alabama. He's very accurate with the football. He doesn't have a big arm where he's just gonna be able to control a game if they get down by twenty points in a ball game or something like that and bring him back but he can definitely manage a team but again we haven't seen enough yet so we've got a couple of more games left and i think everybody's rushing to judgment on all these young guys. I wish they would just give them a chance to show what they can do. over the next couple of weeks they're going to get a chance to play a lot especially in the last preseason game if they're not the starter So we'll really get a chance to see what these guys look. Like when the lights are on and bright all the famer warren moon with this fred rogan in for chris bruce out along with rob parker fox sports radio the odd couple aaron rodgers warren said. He was fifty fifty on retiring the weekend before training camp. Now it's one thing to think it. It's another thing to say it. Would you say something like that when you were playing. You know what i thought about hanging it up but now i'm coming back for another year where we had another green bay quarterback to sit out a few times to brett farr so I don't know if he was saying that only because he he was maybe looking at retiring as a strategy for his co. getting out of his contract or whether he was really thinking about walking away from football if he was really thinking about walking away from football. That's serious because once you start thinking you're want to retire You're not going to be all in and you better be all in this sport Where you get your your head knocked off so I hope it was only because he was saying that as a strategy or thinking that as a strategy of what he was going to try and use maybe to get out of his deal not the fact that he actually was ready to leave. The game should should cowboy fans be concerned about dak. Prescott had the gruesome injury last year. Now has a shoulder situation would probably not going to see them in the preseason or or is this just you know precautionary measures and they're just going to wait until the season start. I think they should be concerned because he has been away from the game since week. Five of last year. So he's kinda rusty he has he just hasn't played any games. And now you're gonna try. Maybe bringing back having had no No time in a real game. Even though he is a veteran you still like to be able to play a little bit in a preseason game just to get the feel of of what it's like to go out for pre game warm up to get yourself dressed All the different pageantry that goes on before regular football game. I know i love playing in the preseason. I didn't have to play a lot. But i like going through the process of going through a game because just got ready for when the real real bullets started flying so i if if he doesn't play at all during the preseason we're going to see him game one and they start out against the tampa. Bay buccaneers. you don't want to go out to your first game against one of the best defense in the league and having having played in over a year. So that's That's going to be tough if he's not able to play at all today warren in the nfl. We talked about it a bit earlier. coaches are less apt to play their starters in the preseason. They don't want to get anybody hurt. You know you go through your drills and practice you go through your repetitions and practice and then we'll see a week one. What do you think of that. And here's my problem with that Fred that Ucla a lot of injuries in the nfl right now in the first three games of the year over the last few years because of this philosophy of not playing guys all of a sudden you go in and play at a different speed. Preseason is one speed and then you go into the regular season the game just speeds up even another speed and you're going out there and playing and you haven't played it all in a game all you've done is practice and these practices having as other teams aren't anything like what a real game is going to be. So that's why you see so many guys get hurt in the first few weeks of the season because these guys are not calloused in ready to play the season because they haven't played any during the preseason. So everybody's scared of players getting hurt but they ended up getting hurt anyway in the first few weeks of the season because they haven't played and so that's just a philosophy. I believe in and that's why i was able to play as long as i did and i think players played longer back in the day and didn't have as many injuries they do now lasting for me. Sean mcveigh has put everything in the matthew. Stafford basket He's the messiah he's gonna lead them to the super bowl and win a championship. I mean he cannot stop talking about matthew stafford. Is that a good thing or bad thing. Where a coaches put so much into a guy who's never wanna play off game never wanted division and put a lot of pressure on staffer to perform. Yeah i i don't think he should be him up as much as he has been. Especially you know the way laws. They lost their running back off for the season that they don't have a really number one running back right now and that offense is predicated on being able to run the football. And then if you run it successfully now you go play action. That's where the quarterback comes in. That's where jared goff was so good for them is when they were running the ball. Well he was very effective throwing the football. And it's going to be the same way matt stafford if they don't if they're not able to run the football and he just has to sling every down. I don't know if they're set setup for that so the running game is going to be important. And he is putting a lot of pressure on this quarterback to To carry them to the super bowl and he might have to do it more by himself than what he thought when he first signed there. The great warren moon hall of famer appreciate you joining us Steak yes my goodness gracious. I can't wait in my mouth. Is watering right. Now i enjoy that. You gotta take care.

Woke up into the podcast pittsburgh. Pirates shortstop kevin newman kevin. Welcome to the podcast buddy. How are you. i'm good. Thanks for having me. No thanks for joining us. And the pirates finished up the three game series with the dodgers on wednesday night in los angeles. But i want to talk to you about something that happened to pass week where you were mentioned with harness wagner one of the all time great baseball players ever and that you would have i. Pirates shortstop with four extra base in the game since hottest wagner and the second game of a doubleheader august twenty second nineteen ten. I mean you heard about that. Yeah i saw that. One of my buddies actually told me and it was. It was an honor man. I didn't i didn't have any idea was it was Something that rare but you know to be mentioned in the same sentence That is just incredible. It really is when you when you go back. And you're talking about such a long period of time that no other shortstop and have four extra base hits in a game but you did it and obviously pirates are struggling and out of it for this season but let me ask you about you. The start and the difference in baseball. You have to keep making adjustments from your first year when you batted three away and then the next couple years. How have teams pitch you differently. Have you seen that. And then is it up to you to make an adjustment if the game adjustments You know i come in having success and then with all the data analytics that are out there now. it's really like a cat and mouse game You know they have the ability to see You know where. And what pitches you hit. Well and wearing what pitches you don't Obviously they're gonna do everything they can exploit those weaknesses and you know. That's where the adjustments come in So it's really it's never Not changing you're constantly You know adjusting your sites or focuses your approach Because if you don't you know they'll they'll figure out what what gets you out and And that's part of it is frustrating was just a learning process. Could you bet at three o. Eight year breakout year couple years ago and then it averages around two twenty five to twenty six since then is it frustrating or is it just a learning process or do you take it on as a challenge on all three honestly You know it's Know baseball game of failure and You know so being able to You know crime through and You know get through those slumps It's it's all three of the things you just said so you just take a day by day and Continue to show up to the field. You know wanting to get better Wanting to compete wanting to say it's the best in the world and in making those adjustments. And that's kind of how you you take it day by day guest here on inside. The parker is pittsburgh pirates. Shortstop kevin newman and cabinet aborted up a little bit ago about the pirates. And you know it's been a rough year but how do you prepare yourself your major league player you in the big leagues got a job to do and even if your team is out of it. Is it harder to play or it's not hard to play because you have a job to do and you just come out and play every day every day is into this same approach mentality out there Winding get better. You go out there. You know competing. Jesse possibly can because nobody likes to get out. Nobody likes to lose so You know unfortunately you know where we're at and where records at you know. That's not where we want to be but it's a reality situation and So just showing up every single day and You know getting your working and and Bringing your best self to the field and you know collectively trying to get wins Every night regardless of of our record. That's that's kind of integrity for us. Rob good stuff. Yeah you know what to be mentioned with hornets wagner. I mean that's pretty unbelievable. Isn't it fred. It really is an year like this for the pirates. You know that they'll take anything they can get even to be mentioned in that regard. No doubt he's a good guy playing shortstop for the pirates in town of course planned dodgers when they were here earlier this this week so yeah it'll be interesting as inside the park drops every thursday on the heard podcast network.

We have a lot of different elements. I'm very proud of the inside. The parker podcasts Speaking of baseball real quick off the dodgers gonna catch the giants. There's a good possibility they will. They're only three back now And all they have to do is make up a game a week to do it. You know san francisco has played very well. Unbelievably well right but it's not a baseball week. It's not a baseball month. it's baseball season. No and there is still time the west is going to be fascinating and the padres are the chain that might fall out padres that everybody thought were going to be so incredibly gifted at the beginning of the year and they may be out on the other side.

Oh so good so good to have football back fans in the stands john. J willard max. Everyone's in the studio right now. Look at this. Look this keyshawn. Now mike all right yup keyshawn sending me some science. Some some sign language right now. I don't think it's working. Hey live that's working. See i feel like every time that happens. The individuals that connect everything in the studio do it on purpose. Yeah to make. It seem like they really work hard. Take apart and it doesn't work all the sudden he plug it together. A hold on the c. Put it back together. One little switch right there with the wires absolutely absolutely in come in and all of a sudden they push a button actually. It's so funny that happened this weekend or this week at home. One of our Side of our or our kitchen all the sockets went out. And you know we could find heating whose role i did. All that pushed. Everything all came over push one button. Don't like i did that. He was like no. You didn't do the right down. You're in new york last night. Jaded yearlings fireworks last night. I was in my house when the late games ended. And i thought the russians were on forty second street. I didn't hear announcement any fireworks. I came down with like didn't sound my fireworks. Walk down down back. i could tell you for sure. It wasn't because the giants jets one. That's for damn job. That's for sure legless be easy. No i'm just saying it wasn't for the jets or the giants win. Davos sure that for sure. Listen but what. How'd you feel about week. One with the fans in the stands so-fi stadium muslim crazy. Right i can see that and then casino attached to it. Hey y'all mike and working now no keep the qisas. Yes so we got some technical difficulties going on right now but our three card monte which one which the next one of those guys out in la to ask. I don't know. Who's i don't know i'm just we're we're talking. I'm talking regardless. I can tell you while while they're getting ki- and jay's mike fixed i can tell you that not only was it great to have football back but you know what i it's been so long you forget especially early in the season how much there is to watch all at once like you need another set of eyeballs especially with all the questions coming in from the preseason now it can j. talker know who knows who can talk. I i'm just gonna keep talking so so anyway there were there were a lot. There was lots of stuff that were lots of questions we had. We started to get some answers. Guys like jameis. Winston to aaron rodgers matt stafford et cetera et cetera. But in case you were sleeping. The slate ended with matthew stafford's three touchdown performance right. He looked good. I thought there was a lot of pressure not only on stafford but mcveigh because if they're like this guy let's trade our number four number one overall two more number ones a third round. Pick to bring this student. This is the guy who's gonna make it work key. What'd you think. Look great it was just one of those deals where we all seed. Exactly the maverick staff would with cast of characters in great talent around new wizards jefferson robber woods. Cooper cover. He'd be you saw something that you said okay. My after we won observation. Say he might have got it right. Athlete eyeball test eyeball test the stafford arm town. We've all these years. Did that pop out to you. Yeah different right. They got my right but is we want this pump. The brakes a little bit. I'm not going what do they call it. Overreacts of course. Of course we've got bills to pay hold on because there's teams seattle francisco and arizona. They all legal division man. Feel like jared goff felt how matthew tougher felt last year with the i mean they almost they almost came back four nine his name was pulled it up but you felt that for him and then watching matthew staffer knowing that the rams only scored thirty four more points twice last season they were twelve and four. It really seen key likes. Sean mcveigh was that okay. I can open up this playbook we can. We can throw the ball. There's not to inconsistency that. We have jared goff before and it seems like matthew staffer can do things that are more off scheduled it just they they hit that stride. More off. or chicago's defense is overrated. And we pushed him up because it's a chicago bear can be true and so i'm just wanna way i give the rams all the credit world for doing the right thing winning picking up stafford. Let's just you know it's one gang and bears also had chances and dalton get where they didn't get it done when they did have chances but stafford stafford look. I really think the pressure for stafford is going to come in the playoffs. Presuming they make the playoffs because that game one in the playoffs. Where it's a coin flip. Maybe you're sixty forty to win. If he lose if he wins that okay see was detroit all the time. That's the reason ever wanted the plus but stafford gets to the playoffs loses game. One always going to be bad for him. There are other guys around the league facing a lot of pressure in the regular season. But i don't think anyone will face more in the playoffs then stafford yesterday. I felt it was like on mcvay. Okay you got your guy. What are you going to do. It looks pretty good so it looks real good. Are you again. Can't complain with the saudi He's got the this is probably the most talent of around collectively. The matthew stafford has ever had in. Sean mcvay knows what to do quarterbacks. Clearly we saw what he was able to do early on with. Jair often led them to a super bowl appearance against doing the patriots so if he continues just keep building that i think matt stafford is going to be something special for the rams and they feel good about it. This is the first year in this offense first game as the games. Continue to keep going. He's only going to get better and better more comfortable in the situation. And then the rams will be one of those teams. We talked about at the end of the year. And then meantime there's the bears quarterback situation they use andy dalton and justin feels a little bit. Here's what coach matt nagy said about the situation after the game you know. I think that for him the times that he got in there that he did well and it would be in his first game and andy. Andy did a good job of helping. Extend some of those drives and us going through that whole deal of how it's going to go but we'll continue to to keep growing with that stuff and see what we to do with that. But in the end. I thought again i go back to that touchdown run. I mean justin did a great job and early in the game on the i throw to so just playing. Why are you here now. Now now you just playing though key. It happened from from the initial kickoff. Right bears came back. They had like a fifty or return than they had a running play. Second down thirty. Play there on the goal line and he throws a picnic. I know the ball tipped right. But you're watching. Now you're and damn the first time you're seeing the bears into renzo. Andy dolan throws a pick and my thing is i. Just an feels brings more excitement to the feel key. Remember i said dynamic remember. I said andy i mean just feels are gonna be the started this week coming up. Remember i said like we do we too. Yeah i can see it. I could smell it. You know it's funny. Because i understand why. Start and dalton. It's not because he's better. Obviously justin fields is better right. It looks pretty obvious. The preseason it's because you wanna protect justin fields make sure he's ready. Give the offensive line a little time. Whatever but there's always the danger if you lose games where they think if you've got a little better quarterback play. You can win that you sink your season early. And that's why you gotta stop the bleeding right now so if you start him week to put that you now you stop the bleeding. Because you've now re-energized your team your defense which is supposed to be the killer for your team. So now you've reenergized them all over again you roll antidote out there. And he don't do the ball thirty eight time man. If you thought about thirty eight times you got zero touchdowns and you you've only throw for barely two hundred yards a real issue and that means you not pushing the ball down the field and the bears defense. In the secondary got carved up the bears. Defense hasn't been great for a couple of years now. They had a reputation. They've built in the reputation that it's that reputation like i said it's bears almost like everybody. La going crazy because ucla beat lsu. No man y'all beat lsu yard and beat joe boroughs. Y'all bleak the brand. They'll stop it justin fields. Oh stephen and dinner. Alaska give me a give me problems. When i said the giants should draft. Justin feels owner. They already have daniel jones. I know and maybe he could wind up being a good quarterback one day but justin feels has a chance to be great chance do justify the chance to be great. Yes or nokia chance to be great. I think daniel jones might have a chance to be great. See with the great. Were maxes words that i don't like to throw out there. I think just to be excellent yes. Justice has a chance to be great great great as long different man. You got a long body of work for years. Multiple pro bowls multiple championships. I mean it's different all right.

I know you're a big stats guy. So listen to this. If he would've thrown the ball according to pro football focus he would have thrown the ball into the dirt on every play he'd had a passer rating of thirty nine six. Because no turnovers no sacks right so i guess at thirty nine point six is basically a zero as a passer for passer rating. He had a thirty two point. Eight he could he his rating would have been better if you own the ball in the dirt and what what happened. I'm like them stunned. I don't know what happened. Other than what new orleans dea tomb ran. The ball will -ffective. They ran the ball close to forty times. Not only that. James five touchdowns did turn the ball over in methodically at times led his team down the field. When you need to all right throws that's all you need. You don't need to say this all the time when people say you gotta have aaron rogers to win the super bowl. You have to have patrick mahomes when the super no you have to have. Hey head coach. That knows what the hell he's doing in not put the quarterback bad situation. Have nick foles nick. Foles brett johnson with us. I mean not guys that typically have the records in the regular season. That's what you gotta have a winston one of those guys yesterday. Let me ask you a question key so last night. I'm sitting here watching the game. The packers down seventeen to three the pretty much on the goal. Line and aaron rodgers at very uncharacteristically takes a shot deep downfield into double coverage. It was a horrible robot away and just watching him. Go off to the silent it. Just there is nothing about erazo all last year. I looked like aaron rodgers right now. It just looked like a completely different. And just just imagine if we were talking about this during summer that we will watch jordan. Love the game and aaron rodgers sitting on the bench with them getting blown out thirty. Eight to three by jameis winston. Like what would we have said considering everything he just went through the summer. It seemed like it had to take somewhat of a whole. I'm not saying he kept bounced back because he can when they backed up like that though. And you throwing a ball. It's basically a punt right at the end. You just get getting your heaving it. You're getting rid of it is. It doesn't really matter at that point. And then when you say body language and things of that. Nature is one of those deals where aaron rodgers in the in the. He's seeing something as a quarterback and he wants something dialed up. He's looking at certain coverages in. It's not happening for him because the game plan probably is working the way that they thought the game plan was working so when they went into it they probably went into it with bad game. Plan to start. It just probably went into the game with a bag game plan. That's that's what happens when you get nothing. going on. offense is because not that. The coach gets out. Coached is just a shooting game. Plan one here. Matt rodgers absolutely. Let's your roger passive aggressive aaron rodgers teams in the play. That much to show you got to run the ball and you know we didn't run a data effectively I think we came in thinking. They're going to pressure us. A bunch like they did last time the last time you know. We had Allen nbs swerve and this time you know we had some different Skill guys obviously devante being back so they really impress wrestle a lot. There's a lot of A lot of to show and they kind of held up with the front Front forefront six key for one quick second keep going to translate into everyday people terminology. That's the kind of stuff that kind of really gives me pissed off about air. Rogers right like i get it back. Game pie. scheme wasn't right like he alluded to in the first segment. But like why you keep throwing everybody else under the bus. You max like why i mean listen. I'm not a lot of people. Feel that way again. A lot of people maxwell the so what's the translation what you just heard what roger said That the game plan wasn't the way that they wanted to. They play a lot of to shell. We weren't prepared. We you know when you when you got all that to shell like that that means that the two safeties are high. The middle of the field is wide open. We should be running the ball. We didn't run the ball. We didn't adjust. We didn't get it done in. Part of we means at the coaches didn't make the necessarily adjustment. So do you see what jay is saying about like it. So that rubs you the wrong way. 'cause you're like hold on take some accountability. Don't pass the buck is. Is he passing the buck. Don't think i don't. He's passing but publicly. But he's not passing the book internally. You understand what i'm saying like. He's not he's telling everybody what the problem is because it was the problem the problem. They didn't make adjustments typically halftime. You go in no matter. What the score is you. Get your little group together. You get on the board they tell you. Hey they're playing x. amount of coverage percents this much. They're doing this on third down to doing that. We need to attack them this way. Clearly they didn't have what they needed to when they went to the game from playcalling standpoint in their kashi but in their playbook they certainly got some stuff that they can go to that will attack cover to if that was big problem. 'cause it's two beaters are easy. You run the ball and you can't get you can't get hey running the ball. The middle of fields wide open. Okay you put people in the middle feel deep crossers deep in cuts. If they're running that they plan cover to you got comeback that convert to high corner out. I mean it's all sorts of different instead of their game played into the teeth of the defense and they did adjusted wide. Just for some reason. I go back to the afc championship game where him and matlock floor. Had a hard time communicating right so like my mind goes as a point guard and the game of basketball. If stuff isn't working. Whenever i go into the head coaching by this this scheme is no longer working time to implement a scheme that works like where does that direct where he probably. We don't know because we wouldn't in ceylon and locker room. But if i'm thinking correctly they probably are having. They probably had the conversation is said. Hey they're running cover to. Let's get to our two beaters in the coach goes. Yeah yeah yeah and they never get to it because the situation doesn't allow them to get. That happens a lot where tell coach. We need to be doing this. And then they just. They think about when johnson was all with us. We talked about the detroit game where i was running. They were running cover to men and we kept running digs digs. And i couldn't get open. And i was like they're not listening to us and i went back to the corner. Touchdown saved game and we all wanna game and the whole deal because we just made. The adjustments are own coaches. Sometimes they become stubborn. Just don't wanna listen all right. Look we. I mean there's so much to talk about with the packers alone. We didn't even get to jameis winston the saints which we're gonna do a little bit because james. Oh you want some good news for the packers. The last team to lose thirty eight three two the saints was the bucks last year week nine and of course they won the super bowl so i guess that means the packers are gonna win the super bowl key. We'll tell you why he continues to be so wrong. Nfl quarterback and someone else's here to rub it in. That's next keyshawn. J. will max. Espn radio espn two tv high. Been a problem for a lotta years.

Something we call the no huddle titans deep titans thirty eight thirteen behind five sacks to force fumbles in an overall dominant performance from chandler jones. Kyle murray threw for four touchdowns. Here's john gamble. Toro of arizona's sports ninety. Eight seven on waikiki. Continues to be so wrong about mary. Keyshawn keyshawn keyshawn. What a bad week for you my friend. When are you going to learn was bad enough. That usc got clobbered. Our zona cardinals. They destroy the tennessee. Titans on the road. And your boy tyler. Murray could not be stuck. You know that four touchdowns passing another touchdown running and they go on the road a hostile environment and they wedged thirty eight to thirteen or you. Did you lose a thousand dollars to me. Last year thousand dollars to charity. Believe in kyle amari. He's going to be the next quarterback to get forty million dollars. Mark it down in the arizona cardinals go to the playoffs watching that game and they would just kill. Antipolo was watching stanford and usc older again. When will you learn dope-ban against kyla. Murray in the car. He's legit yet. You need to learn your lesson. In gala legit gimmel should watch out for that rattlesnake behind him. And then look. Here's what i would say. First of all is nothing against calamari. I can't stand the air rate at cannot stand it. I watched it at usc this past week and one hundred percent right. It is the worst offense going. They played against the tennessee. Titans which is bad defense in my opinion. But there's a coroner's look good on offense. You give them their credit column. Murray running around doing what he does best. He even the ball using his legs. Chandler jones on the side of the ball five sacks. He abused that left. Tackle was ridiculous. That left tackle needs to go in to figure out at the national guards could help save him away from challenge. Gels column murray played fantastic. Two hundred eighty nine yards four touchdowns an air one on the ground. Ill-advised pick beer at the end of the day. Do i think arizona cardinals are gonna make hay on this. Keep it positive. I love when i say positive. Things about the red sea just makes my soul glow top of that today. Let me finish. Somebody stole my voice because there wasn't me that made all of those things talk negative about carlos. It wasn't me else. All i'm saying is this is the most entertaining team in football in my opinion watching calorie watching hop watching. Jj watt and a defensive end watching channel. Jones get paid your money get paid your money back five sacks with way. He came off the edge. I don't care about tennessee. The tennessee was disappointing but arizona dominated not run the huddle offense. Let's run the no heart. Let's run the no huddle all right. Let's get onto the next pastor dolphins and patriots in a battle of former alabama quarterbacks to attack a vilo and the dolphins got the best of mack jones and the patriots. With the seventeen sixteen win. Here's our espn patriots. Reporter mike reese on jones's nfl debut. The patriots lost. But mac joan showed promise and also how he doesn't care about memorabilia. From his first career touchdown pass after the throw as jones job to the sideline receiver nelson agar tried to hand him. The ball and jones passed it off. He explained why afterwards saying it doesn't really matter it's just one touchdown it's not like the game was over right there. We got to score more in the red zone and we will. The work continues next sunday against the jets key. Were you want you you go for. You said you wanted to say so. I i find interesting like even in the loss. When other quarterbacks go through a loss they kinda get they go to the woodshed. But we're maktum has lost. Oh still it's really really good well. It's a narrative that's being built. And i think when you look at mack jones. He did. He did a pretty good job but engineering. The offense and doing what you know young. Tom brady early years of tom. Brady is exactly what you kinda saw with. Jones hit a few shots across the middle but other than that he played played. Well i think he played well enough to continue to grow next week against the jets. He'll he'll be able to take that medicine really well this week. Losing to the dolphins and carry into the jets game. And i'm sure he will improve on that but on the other side of the business to took care business for the miami dolphins they went to foxborough. They got the. W that's all it really matters. People are looking at the stat line with too and sitting there going. Oh well it's not giving us what we want at the quarterback spot all. I wanna ws out of back and he got that too is gonna have to show some consistency this year after a up and down. Let's say rookie year and mack. Jones is now where he was. He's a rookie all right. Let's let's keep this no huddle steelers at bills dealers went at the buffalo and beat the darling of the afc. Oh they're the pick. Twenty three sixteen ben rothlisberger eighteen four thirty two. With one hundred. Eighty eight yards and a touchdown but the big play came from the steelers. Special teams rothlisberger told sal pal after the game why the steelers were able to come away with the win. Overall guys just didn't panic guys didn't worry if they didn't make the right play or make mistakes and i think the biggest thing is we didn't make that key mistake right a turnover or something that that just changes the game I thought played well. Are they got out. They took the steelers in his game with my bet on friday with my money and everybody looked at me like i was a damn fu but hey i knew mike tomlin going into buffalo like veer off the burgers said. There's no panic. He learned under coach. Tony dungy just stay calm. The everything will be okay and they stay as that game starting to look like maybe it could be one of those barn burner to three type games swing. Then all of a sudden pittsburgh got some momentum they change. They blocked a punt. They go up now buffalo handsome. They haven't been in. That spot in their stadium is such a long time. we're now they're oh we're supposed to be the darlings. We played in the afc championship game a year ago. We did not pittsburgh would punch back. That's what they did jay. They got buffalo punched him in the math in. Pittsburgh dingo anywhere. that's fine. that's fine. I had to do a keys. Gloating via text. The whole damn game saying is buffalo needs a steady run game and we use it airy look six holding penalties offense live for bus buffalo. And the steelers. Seven on the pass rush. I mean without a true balance being. It's i felt like yesterday was a big disappointment for two bills. I know a tough game. You know what i saw. I saw the same steelers from last year that rothlisberger when he was going good was drinking and dunking and the defense was good. Like that's how they won games. i'll take eighteen. Would always say about these quarterbacks we we we think that we gotta have a statistical and the regular season to get to the super bowl. That is true to win last year. Don't have to have to free. But last year the league figure them out after a while and it caught up to ask her about it. They were banged up hurt. I'll take any day a guy that could go eighteen to thirty two four hundred and eighty eight yards. Don't turn the ball over. And give you take the w i'll take it home and always give you at least as many. W l's no matter what the circumstance and finally rounds led for most of the game but two second-half turnovers in a disastrous drop ball by the punter allowed the chiefs to overcome a twelve point deficit in the second half to win thirty three twenty nine. Same old browns. Here's coach kevin. Stefanski disappointed came on the road versus a really good football team. Really well coached. Football teams are knows and and we didn't come away with victor. So that's real disappointing We didn't play our best when a we didn't coach our best when it matters and versus a team like this you got to play a sixty minute. Football game didn't do that so again. Disappointed anytime. You can't get a win on a road. Yeah tough vivar. Mackenzie city arrowheads wanted toughest stadiums and play in and the national football league. But what i would say kevin stefanski. You got a quarterback baker mayfield. Who's twenty one twenty two for three hundred twenty one yards. He did have interception. But that's okay they can grow from this. It's not all gloom and doom at all you learn from your mistakes. You go back to the whale. Next time you see the kansas city chiefs you will do things way different. I've been in these situations where teams were outcoached. Us out played us and when we saw a second or third time around. Guess what we took them to the woodshed. So if cleveland were to see kansas city in the playoffs i probably would put my money on the cleveland browns to take care of business against kansas city. I wouldn't do it in week. One though nicu gotta hold onto that ball there quarter that was it was a critical fumble and then special teams. I mean those are little plays that. Just come back to haunt you. If you to fix that dog next time you see them you know okay. We made some mistakes here okay. We did that there. It's simple and easy. They will see them again and it might just be in the playoffs. Seventeen straight seasons without winning the opening game for the browns seven so who should they me. Seasons atlanta seven hundred detroit atlanta one of those schedule my giants. That'll fix it that maybe schedule. Giants jets keyshawn jay presented by progressive insurance all guests. Join us on. The goodyear hotline. Now it's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Let's stay on this game guys You know early on in that game. It looked like it could be a blow out the way the browns were running the ball the way that and but but but you know patrick mahomes on the other side and even in the super bowl. last year. I was thinking i don't know. Is there a way and come back this game. Because it's mahomes and he had that crazy play where he's side arms it all the way down the field behind the defense i mean. What did you think the chiefs. We're out of the game at any point k. No not at all. I always felt like andy reid. Eric talked about adjustments. They were gonna make the necessarily adjustments. It just took them a minute to figure out exactly what cleveland was doing with their offense on the defensive side once. They started to understand some of the things that they were doing. Stunts two games the twist they was able to pick it up and realize oh okay we can do this week kelsey. We put patrick on the perimeter on the run. Give him a two way. Go all of those sort of things. You make those adjustments in all of a sudden you ride back in the game. And now cleveland gets tight because they wasn't expecting that and then the rest is history you roll up and you get the w. And they did all this. The cleveland browns play well even without oh. Bj now over jay lineup. It may change slightly. But i don't think you'd changed that it wouldn't be that significant to get them over the hump because again the chiefs are there cleveland. Trying to get their. You know. Joe woods defensive coordinator for the browns has been considered to be on hot seat for a little bit for the way they played last year to defensively team. Kind of break it down what you saw them do in the second half but i walked away watching a game kiosk myself. A big question. Why was tyreek hill in single coverage won't play were up nine leading the game had him. Patrick mahomes me like a seventy five yard pass. It was a deep single coverage by himself and was just gone in a game just like got out of reach gang planning and that's adjustments and that's knowing exactly work covers. They're going to be in. So you put the formation to dictate the coverage. And that's what they did. They found the match up on one on one single coverage and at the end you know is like okay. We're gonna get him matched up on this. But in order to get matched up. We gotta get into certain personnel grouping that way now we know exactly what it is so patrick no tyreek oh no we let me. Let's let me digest pre digested for everyone. When jay which a lot of people think like which i think when i'm watching like hold up you covering the fastest land mantle with one dude and patrick mahomes installing in the ball key. What you're saying is that doesn't happen by accident. That's a result of ofensive strategy in terms of groupings etc etc to create single coverage not single coverage was zone coverage in what they did all he did was running across on a deep crosser which allowed him to get up on the safety so the corner passed off the safety but they knew that the corner passing off to the safety based on the formation that they were in which was stupid. It just you. You shouldn't let read and be enemy knowing that they got guys can take advantage of of. It's like how can we get him matched up on a safety. Here's how put him on the left side. Let's run him on a deep crosser. Because typically when a quarterback rose to write the defender floats to the side of quarterback is going to now and his eyes are off tyreek. He goes to the safety safety. I mean what's he's flat-footed a so j you and we were all texting and stuff and the thought is wait a minute. Is that a crazy throw by mahomes. That could get picked right like is he or is that a smart throw and it's even off the ball back said not a smart through texas. Like that's what he was. That's what he wanted to do. It wasn't like sodas frequent nature. That's what he wanted to do. He knew based on what he was doing where his receivers are going to be. He knows his offense. He knows the guys here guys. Here's somebody's coming on the backside of the deep crosser so when my eyes tell me is quarterback. I'm going from low to high. He's talked to go from low to high in these situations because a deep cross has to develop so as he's moving out of the pocket chelsea's in front of me. Whoever else is on the sideline all their trash covered up. I'm taking my eyes off of that. I'm looking downfield. It's now developed. i'm gonna heave it. I got my guy messed up on that guy which is a safety. He's a duck and getting ready to shooting dead a j. like all that is true and then patrick mahomes escaping pressure running for the lengthy throwing across his body like that top down off from the side. It's just how special house special and talented. He is i this off season. I guess because their own was depleted last year. Key all that talk about. Hey the retooled it but it's still like when you see him just like them you never feel like they're out of the game. We patrick houdini mahomes. I don't feel there's a. There's a handful of quarterbacks that and we always have these arguments that are in this league that whether it's russell wilson patch mahomes as bad as air rogers play. I still feel good about him as old as be round. Burger play. is. I feel good about him. Those guys i'm good. We don't worry about anything and obviously terrific. Tom is terrific tom. We saw what he did with a minute. Twenty four left on the clock against cowboy nation. Physically what mahomes did i think of raj. I'm trying to think of who else physically capable notches of making that. Play one time but a do dude where you're like. He can go ahead and do that. And i'm confident that consistently he's going to get that done rogers mahomes who else who would have the foot speed arm strength accuracy the protection of the all. The guys just name all of them name. Maybe brady doesn't do that because he can't get away. But in terms of some of those strolls in the stuff that tom does you sit back. You just go. Okay being rothlisberger same thing. It looks weird because being a lumbering alone he could all of a sudden he the boss. Where you you like. Did he just do that. I mean russell. Wilson those type of guys individually i think kyla murray and i hate this offense. I think kyle murray will be that type of guy all of a sudden. There's a certain magic that happens with certain fields. Maybe that's straight talk. Straight talk wireless no contract so i still voicing ignore commerce happened. Let's hear from you on the dr pepper call online eighty eight say. Espn eight eight seven two nine. Three seven seven six we're asking. What's your biggest overreaction. From week one. Mike in cleveland How you doing. It's not an overreaction. I actually tried to call all last week to let you guys know. 'cause jay will was real big on baker mayfield and i'm from cleveland and I have to deal with the baker apologised. I've been dealing with them for four years at the end of the day. Baker just doesn't get the job done. He had opportunity last year against kansas city. To put us on the back and get to the get us. The playoff wins. He went seven. Plays for twelve yards twice. Yesterday you had an opportunity to put us on his back and get us the win and he didn't do it again. Baker doesn't have any signature wins in his. Nfl career. he cannot get it done in. The browns will not make the playoffs at this was against the team. Just got to the super bowl last year. And i know expectations were for the browns to win this game. They were twenty two tenths. So i can see the frustration. But i'm not gonna sit here and say that the browns aren't gonna make the playoffs based upon a game where look man if special teams. You get a kick. If it's not wasn't off to the side you still find ways to be in. This ball game travis. Kelsey was obese. Get it but the defense still look good and it doesn't turn the ball over. It's a different style game. So they're right there man. I hear young. And i'll take baker mayfield. Who's at young quarterback who yesterday was dylan. Twenty one to twenty eight without oh. Bj the interception. Mike us toward the end of the game but you also picked trying to pick on a first round corner that has some injury history of minnesota but if he stays healthy in kansas city. Marcus down max. Because i know you like. He's a top five corner. In the national football league he stays healthy quo. And you you you look at that and you got to say to yourself. Baker mayfield is giving cleveland browns. Exactly what they need at the quarterback spa. I'll say this though key. I hear you. I like baker. He's good the thing about the signature wins like he had that close game. Lamar with lamar comes out of the locker room. And what we what you just said but we were talking about. Mahomes roger some. That's not baker that dude's like if you're looking for baker what he is plus that extra something to make that mahomes play. That's that to me. Does not look like he like you. Think he can become that the play the like like bellingham out of ituen. Yes he's never gonna be just maybe in a different way if the way. You said tom brady. Does it a different way. He's never gonna be athletically as gifted as patrick behold. We saw that when he was running from the police at oklahoma. They tackled him on the on the curb. So we already know that. But i think baker mayfield is there to stay in cleveland. The cleveland browns fans should take a deep breath in paul. You're looking good. Turn your back on baker mayfield. You wish that you did. You got a good quarterback you've got an accident almost beat the chiefs. She'll she'll for a minute you you lose by you lose a few points on the road in arrowhead stadium kansas city chiefs. Who would defending. Afc champions who lost to a tampa bay buccaneer team and some people would argue. If that offense align was attack. kansas city probably would have won. the game. Liked the callers overreacting. And i want to get to more of these overreactions. Little them to yours. yeah. I didn't realize that hill. A coach who might be done after one game coach could be done after one game. That is that something. Because i will react to week. One on keyshawn j. max. We're going to overreact. We're going to have people are going to call in and give us overreaction that we see. We're also allowed to overreact. Why not espn radio. Siriusxm channel eighty.

In my past fancy drafts. I've done things where i've reached for players. I valued certain positions over other positions because earlier years. I didn't really value the running back position. Like i should have. And i kinda valued the quarterback position. I worried about getting my quarterbacks before filling up my whole team the rest of my team which now has changed. Because you know i've learned from my mistakes But yeah that was kind of some of the mistakes that i would also like. I am pretty sure. I've talked about you. Know with drafting aaron rodgers. And you know because you know my aaron rodgers one of my favorite players. And i always love to have him on my teams. You know it something that i need to move away from and i did do then. Twenty one thousand nine hundred. And i want my league because of that. I did not do that last year. However aaron rodgers did when mvp. And i did make the playoffs. My team you know dealt with some injuries and you know that didn't happen then you know who knows. Maybe i would have made Maybe one the whole thing again but you know that's last year now moving onto this year but kind of going into some of the things that you shouldn't do and all kind of related back to my own personal experience. One of the big things is to not reach for quarterback. I think it's very important for people as fancy players to realize that. There is a surplus of quarterbacks. And you can get quarterbacks late in-draughts and i mean a really all depends on what league. What kind of league you're doing if you're doing it to qb league or if you're doing one qb league. I think obviously differs a little bit. Because you obviously you know in two q believe you wanna get your number one. Qb you know sooner as opposed to if you're doing the one qb lee you can kind of wait and also the fact that there's going to be a lot of qb's on the waiver wire that you could definitely start week to week. You know if you need if you need a quarterback to pick up and you know you have a bye week or an injury or something and you know if there's quarterback on the waiver wire that has a good match up you can pick them up that week and And you could start them. You can plug and play so the main thing is to not reach for. Qb like i said there are a surplus of qb's that you can wait on. Obviously you know if you wanna get mahomes. Herbert josh allen. Those kind of guys you know. Obviously you're gonna wanna maybe draft them a little bit earlier than some of the other cubeys but you know if you wanna have a really good team. I suggest that we build your entire team and then you go after. Qb unless you know the good qb's all star going then that's when you're gonna wanna step in and get one of them you know because obviously you don't want to end up with you know a guy like i guess i don't know cam newton. Were ben rothlisberger. You don't want to end up one of those guys late in the air early in the draft. Because i don't think they're going to. Have you know amazing seasons. But you want to end up with someone of the younger guys or you know with brady or rogers brady actually would be really good pick you know because a lot of people they tend to fall back on brady and he ends up being like a steal of the draft. Because you know it doesn't really matter you know how you know what. Tv's on whatever you know well. I know back in twenty nineteen in have his best season but he was still. I still thought he was a solid. Qb to and he goes to the box and he was fine. That's why i'm that's what i meant by saying. It doesn't matter what team he's on. Honestly you know. And i feel like he could definitely be guy that's going to have another great year especially going into year two in the system with the buccaneers. I think he's going to be great again as long as he's protected and everybody's healthy so he could listen if you draft him late in your draft and you've got a solid team and you're doing a one qb league. I mean that's fine. You could definitely do that. I mean because he you know he's gonna play for probably. I would say this year. He's of course going to be playing. Then you know probably maybe one or two more years the way the way he made it seem because he did say you know we're nearing the end and a lot of people are hoping that you know it. It's over because of you know what he's been doing over the course of his career and you know tormenting a lot of people's fan bases and all that you know and It's going to be said when he goes Just because it's another great player that's going to retire and you know he's a players that you know i grew up watching and it's you know we're entering a new era in football and i think the. Nfl is in good hands. Even when brady retires but you know what you could definitely get as much as you can out of them if you draft him and fantasy. I think you know he's probably gonna stay here for the rest of his career in tampa. And why would you wanna leave in. Just one super bowl. You've got great skill position players. You know they're going to be the bucks are gonna be good and brady is going to be good as as long as you protected and as long as you know. His weapons are still there. So you know he's a kind of guy that's gonna fall late in drafts just because you know there's still a lot of people that you know Guys are gonna be taken ahead of them. You know like the younger guys. So you know like i said. Don't reach on a qb you know. Obviously if the good qb sar going and you feel like you need to jump in and get one. That's different but for the most part. Try not to reach on a qb you know. Try to fill out the rest of your team. And the other thing i'll say is when it comes to quarterbacks do not draft a quarterback that is dealing with the qb controversy. Were you know. There's some kind of other thing going on with him now. Aaron rodgers is probably the exception to that. Because i mean he's not dealing with you know some legal issues like to shawn watson and you know he doesn't have. There's no quarterback controversy in green bay if he obviously comes back. Because obviously you do have you do have jordan love jordan. Love is there. But i don't think there's going to be competition of rogers comes back. He's going to be the quarterback. But when you look at the stuff like you know. Andy dalton which justin fields. Obviously we know justin fields is going to eventually start so i think what you probably would have to do is is if you know. If you're that desperate you know if you wanna drive that any dawn. You have to try your best to get justin fields as well that unless he's on the waiver wire because eventually he's going to start you're not gonna wanna take andy dalton you're also not gonna wanna take. You're not gonna wanna take anti-doping without taking justin fields. Also you're not going to want to take jimmy garoppolo when you got trained lance there. Jimmy garoppolo has been dealing with wada injuries over the past couple of seasons. Obviously twenty nineteen. He didn't you know he didn't really deal with that. They made it to the super bowl and we all know what happened. You know. they didn't win. They blew ten point. Lead to the chiefs. The forty niners did and garoppolo. He barely missed emmanuel sanders on that deep. Throw and we could. We could be having a different conversation if he hits manual sanders on that long past. But i think the drafting trae lance for the forty niners is an indication that you know. They don't have they're not all in jimmy garoppolo. They feel like he might not necessarily be the answer. So jimmy garoppolo gotta go out there improve. That he's the guy so again jimmy garoppolo. They did draft last year. He was my qb three and he really wasn't the best last year and again he dealt with a bunch of injuries and yeah i it just. It didn't work out last year with garoppolo. I think when it comes to you know guys like andy. Dolan jimmy garoppolo. I think you want to stay away from them because you know they're not i don't think they're necessarily going to start the whole season. I think garoppolo at some point is either gonna get hurt. Or he's not going to be that good to the point where they're going to bring in trae lance. I feel like that's going to happen. But they got healthy squad coming back. The forty niners do with kiddo. You know deebo samuel brandon. I you so. I think they should be fine. Show you know. I i think that garoppolo will do okay with that supporting cast. It's just a matter of him staying healthy and not playing inefficient. Because honestly i do think that he's better than people think because the forty niners day one games when he starts. I mean that you can't really deny that you know when he doesn't play the forty niners don't really win a lot of games. You saw that in two thousand eighteen. When he missed. I believe the remaining fourteen games on the schedule. And you look at Or the remaining thirteen years. Whatever on schedule then you look at last year i mean they did not play. Well they will. They did not win a lot of games. You know. I mean they dealt with a lot of injuries and particularly garoppolo was one of them as well and then of course you know twenty nineteen. You'll get that season. They went thirteen and three. You know so that just goes to show you jimmy garoppolo. Yes you know you could say whatever you want about him. But the forty niners win games when he starts at the quarterback position when he doesn't start they don't wanna wanna games but this year we'll see what happens it might be a little bit different But i don't know but yeah so anything with like a cuba controversy with rookie coming in or somebody's not playing. You know or other off the field issues. Probably you might wanna stay away from that. Also quick thing one thing you should not do is and i've said it a bunch of times on the show is you do not want to draft any players from the houston. Texans stay away from the houston texans players. Now it depends on how big your league is if you're in a sixteen team league obviously that's a little bit different but if you're in a person ten personally like i am. Stay away from anybody on the texans. Now obviously if the shawn watson makes it through this mess of off season and he somehow comes back to the texans as the quarterback. That's a completely different story. Then you probably put more stock into some of these guys. Philip lindsay david johnson. Brandin cooks kiki. Ut the titans aac and thomas you know that's a different story. But it's watson not there you got ryan finley there david mills tyrod taylor it just. I don't like that at all. Okay so i. If i were. You know if. I'm in your shoes whoever's listening i'm in your shoes. Stay away from anybody from the houston texans. Because they are not going to be good this year. If the shawn watson does not play. Okay if shawn watson doesn't apply they're going to be awful and i can say he's probably not playing so that's another thing you wanna do. The other thing you don't want to do is when it comes to running back. You don't wanna draft running backs where you know it's kind of like a loaded backfield so you look at like the forty niners i i know. They drafted running back trae sermon They drafted him. And you know most search there and you obviously got jeff wilson there as well. They got a lot of running backs. The forty niners do and moster you think. Well that's probably the guy. I wanna take because you know you should be running back but now you know the forty niners. They love to utilize all running backs and jeff was pretty good last year for the niners in you know filling in for most when he was out so there's a lot of. There's a lot of running backs in that backfield. Also you look at the patriots. You got james white. You've got sony michelle. Damian harris i think damian harris should be the lead running back and i think a lot of people would agree with that But you know what. I feel like the patriots. They like to ride the hot hand and depending on. Who's doing good that week. You know you probably you know. We want to stay away from maybe drafting naming hours. So i i kinda. I've kinda pulled back on my damian harris stuff because i did say that i was kind of high on him. But maybe you'll take it over. I don't know but as of right. Now you probably don't wanna reach damian harris. Maybe you sit back and and you feel confident and you have you know the pieces around you know your team. Then you jump in and get him. I think he's obviously still going to get drafted. I think he could be like a solid bench player. But i think you probably want to stay away from drafting him too early. Just because you know they got a lotta backfield. Then looking at some other loaded backfield's look at the Look at the jaguars you know. I thought james robinson would be the lead running back. But then they draw. Travis t. n. They bring believe they brought in carlos high again so now the backfield is loaded again. So now that's that's gonna hurt. That's gonna hurt james robinson so i probably stay away from drafting him just because what will driving him early just because of the fact that you know you got now a loaded backfield again now. I know they've been working at a wide receiver. But i'd probably not put too much fantasy stock and james robinson as right now just because of the uncertainty with their running back situation so yeah i probably stay away from that running back situation as well and there's probably a couple of others that i can't think off the top of my head as of right now i'm thinking of all the teams i mean. Also you gotta look at you. Know i i guess the other thing i would probably say is now that i think about. It is don't put too much stock in running backs where they have an offense that is passed. I saw you look at like the chiefs. Clyde edwards hilar- was projected to be a top ten pick last year and didn't really live up to that. Then you look at. I guess you could look at other offenses like atlanta. Mike davis he could be a pass catcher. But you know. I just feel like when it comes with when it comes to him. You know i i feel like atlanta's going to be throwing the ball a lot more so you probably want to stay away from you. Know maybe drafting. Mike davis too high. You don't wanna reach on him i'm thinking of. I'm trying to think of some other offenses where pass i. I mean i well look get the chargers. They got her They got an actor. Who's a pass catcher. So i think you kind of don't have to worry about that. But yeah that's another thing you don't want to draft a running back where the offense is is passed. I you know because that's just that's not going to help you. you know. So that's another thing you don't want to do and you don't really want wanna dry. You don't want to draft you. Just don't want to draft from bad teams. You don't want to direct players from bad teams. I mean obviously there's a couple of players on bad teams you know. Tj hopkinson at the tight end spot. You know that's a position that you're definitely gonna wanna fill up and you know you're probably going to draft him if you need a tight end but really you. Don't want to draft players from bad teams. That don't have you know good quarterbacks. That's really that's really what it comes down to Because you know it's just they're not gonna get your points and you also obviously you gotta be careful with the boom bust players. You know guys like tyler lockett gotta be careful with them because they put forty five points like he did against the cardinals and then he does absolutely nothing. You don't want you got to be careful with that. You got to look into these boomer bus players because you want to have consistency on your team you really do. You want to have consistency as what it comes down to. So yes. that's another thing. I guess like when it comes to the tight end spot since we just brought up tj hopkinson. You know other than the big three stay away from taking from taking a tight end in the first three rounds of your draft because when you look it calcium waller those are the three tight ends and after that it's i don't wanna say it's a huge dropoff but there's there's kind of a drop off from those three guys like for me. If aaron rodgers does play robber. Tanya is a top five tight end this year. i think that's easy to say. He was really good last year. And i feel like if rogers comes back. He's gonna be good again and you know he's one of the big weapons in this offense and rogers comes back. He's going to be good with joran love. I'd be a little bit more skeptical into not drafting him. Also i just remember when i was talking about cuba. Controversies i forgot to mention drew. Lock and teddy bridgewater. That's something to keep an eye on. Because teddy bridgewater i believe was taking first team reps in practice so if he ends up being the starter you know you gotta watch out for that. Gotta watch out for that. Also you know this is also basic thing. Don't reach on defense either. Don't be don't be that first guy to pick a defense. Because i back in the day picked the seahawks defense in two thousand fourteen. I picked them as my third pick in the third round of a fantasy draft and looking back on that. Now don't now. The good thing is my dad and i we won the league. We won that league and we won some money from that so it worked out in the end but do not do that. Don't be the first guy in your fantasy drafts to draft a defense. I because defenses there i. I don't really wanna compare to quarterbacks but there you could stream defenses week to week. You don't necessarily have to prioritize taking defense so you kind of want to wait on defenses. And just don't be that i don't be that guy to take him just to be the first guy to take. Okay now you you wait. Super late to take defenses and kickers of course because again you wanna get the rest of your team situated before you work on your benches and your defenses and your you know your kickers. so yeah. That's just another simple thing that you're gonna wanna do for your drafts so yeah i think that's you know kind of some of the things that you know you shouldn't do Your fantasy drafts. A lot of the things i said i think are pretty basic But i felt like it's something that you know. Maybe some people that you know may be are starting out in fantasy for the first time stuff that they need to hear you know like i said it's really exciting to be talking about all this stuff and again close i. I know my friends. And i were talking about our draft orders. You know to get that situated before we start drafting so it's coming up and football season before you know it is around the corner and i'm really excited for that with that. We are going to take a quick break when we come back. We will do a schedule outlook on the green bay packers so stick around. We'll be right back here on the gsm. Gmc fantasy football podcast.

Yes mc podcasts. Dot com for more info. All right and we're back you're on the gsm mc fantasy football podcast for the second segment of today's show. We are going to do a schedule. Outlook of the green bay packers and obviously the packers do have a lot of stuff going on to say the least with their quarterback. Aaron rodgers are an of course. He'll be doing his gulf event. The match on tuesday against tom brady. So that'll be interesting to watch but let's talk about football though now. I'm going to go through the schedule with the assumption that aaron rodgers is going to be the quarterback for the packers. So i will go through the schedule. As of aaron rodgers is the starter because i feel like that makes it more interesting. I don't know so. Let's start off the packer schedule and honestly it is a. It is a tough schedule. It this is a very tough schedule. They obviously were the number one seed last year. Thirteen and three. And of course tom brady rolls up to lambofield. And he beat aaron rodgers in his home ballpark his own stadium show Yeah was not very happy about that. But let's go through their schedule and talk about the favorable and unfavorable matchups on the schedule. So the packers start off the season in new orleans week. One four twenty five game on fox there will be no drew brees for this match up of course because he has is now retired. So some interesting to see who. The starting quarterback for the saints will be week one. I feel like it's going to be james. Went symbol have to wait and see so when i look at now. i'm going to start including defenses. more. I know i did say that I really haven't done a good job with that. But when you look at the saints Their offense depending on who the quarterback is i. I think you really. I probably sit the packers defense. Just because of alvin kamara and what he did to that defense last year especially on that big play. I mean the packers just absolutely cannot tackle. That was that was embarrassing But when you look at the offense. I think that you know the saints. Their defense that tends to struggle in the beginning of the year. So i would say that you know. Rogers does well here. Devante atoms does well here and actually davante adams did not play in the week. Three matchup now. That i just. I just remembered playing the week. Three matchup when these two teams met last year. So now you get devante adams most likely would be going up against marshon lattimore. I don't think it's really gonna matter. I think devante will have a good game here. I think aaron jones. He'll do okay here. i think we'll do. Okay look for guys lake allen lazard vow the scheduling to get involved as well allen. Lazard had a big game last year against the saints. He did really well here. You know and then of course. Let's see what obviously robert tanya and he's a guy you're gonna wanna start And you know. It's gonna be interesting to see the other guys mary rogers. Aj dylan see what they can do. But when you look at like the big four. I guess rogers you start here. Aaron jones. of course. You know Robert tanya will do. Well i think davante adams of course. I think this affair will match up for the packers offense. I think they do well. Here should be a good game Of course rogers does play an obviously you got the crowd in it Which is you know something. You gotta also factor because the saints did not have their crowd last year so now full capacity. You know it's gonna it's gonna be a little bit. It's going to be tough. It's gonna be tough. But i think that you know like i said the saints. Their defense tends to struggle early on in the season. So i would say you probably. You're probably fine if you have. You know the big four one of the big four then moving onto week chew. The packers have their first home game to monday night. Football game against the detroit lions. I think it's a very favorable matchup for the packers. I think could start really basically whoever you want This week obviously you know other than the big well in terms of the big four. But then you looking at other guys like lazard and and dylan and rogers and even funchess You know e- kinda out to see how those guys do early on if you wanna pick. I'm pretty sure a lot of those guys. They're going to be on the waiver. Wire so gonna have to kinda you know. See how they do early on in the year before you decide to pick them up but yeah i think aaron jones does well here he had. I believe you had like forty five points in the week. Two matchup last year devante atoms. You know he's going to have a great game here. Rogers you know they're all gonna do well here. So as a very fair will match for the packers have you guys on the packers. You know the big four. You're going to do well here. And then moving onto week number three the packers go to santa clara to take on the forty niners. And you know i i. This is gonna be a tough game zooming very tough game. It's on sunday night. Football the forty niners are going to be at full strength again. Obviously the packers went in there last year and they destroyed the forty niners. But you gotta understand. The forty niners did not have their players. They didn't you know the a lot of their players. Garoppolo wasn't there no kiddle. No deebo samuel producer no i u No moster their defense was missing so many people. Now you got the forty hundreds of full strength going up against the packers. And i think this is an unfavorable matchup particularly in the running game. I i think the forty niners are gonna minimized running game. I feel like i mean. Of course you're going to start. Rogers you're gonna start devante. But i don't think they're going to have good games necessarily on the so. I would say this is an unfavorable matchup for the packers here. The forty niners have the packers number when there are full strength so i yeah on farewell match up indefinitely. Do not start the packers defense. This week the lions defense. You could probably do that but against the forty niners. Do not start the packers defense. Because i think this is going to be a really tough game for the packers. I mean i could be wrong. But i don't really like their chances in this game and i really don't like the the i i really don't fancy purposes either so moving. On to week number four the pittsburgh steelers traveled to lambeau field to take on the packers. And the i think there should be a fun game. I think there should be a fun game. obviously this would be a rematch of super bowl. Forty five. I wanna say yes. Super forty five yes You know obviously these two teams met before you know playing times regular season the last time these two teams met however aaron rodgers did not play in that game. It was in pittsburgh and believe it or not. It was actually a high scoring game. Brett was the starter and the steelers went on a last second field. Goal by chris. Boswell and what's crazy now. We'll actually now think about it back in two thousand thirteen. Aaron rodgers didn't play in that game at. Flynn was the quarterback so now we could see a scenario where aaron rodgers not the quarterback again for the third straight meeting but of course the cord on the other side. Ben rothlisberger has played in Two previous meetings and the super bowl swap so looking at this matchup. i think roger's does play. I think he does well here. I think devante goes off in this game. Just because the steelers secondary is there's some concerns back there and i don't think they have a corner. I don't think joe haden whoever's going to be covering him. I don't think they're going to be able to cover devante. Obviously you know. Joe haden fitzpatrick respect them. But you know they got a you know. The steelers need some more secondary help. But you know outside of that. I think aaron jones is probably going to struggle. Here ceo's have a good run defense. I feel like They're probably going to minimize rushing attack for green bay. Agreement is gonna have to throw it a lot more. So i would say this is kind of a middle of the road match up because i think i could see some players not doing well but someplace doing good i think in terms of running game i think they struggle but i think devante atoms of rogers they do well because the secondary of the steelers rogers is time. Roger doesn't have time than forget what. I just sat but yeah time. Farewell match up for the pac for rogers and monte. But i don't think i don't think it's favorable matchup for the running game of the packers so moving onto week number five. The packers traveled to cincinnati. To take on the bengals. I think so. Very favorable match for the packers. The bengals defense released not that good I think that with the packers defense. I mean i you. I don't think you could go wrong with starting or not. Starting with the steelers. Because is really. Don't have an offensive line right now. So i think that kinda helps the packers out well but will see a bangel same thing but i think the bengals offense is probably going to be better than the steelers this year but we will see but when it comes to the bengals defense. I think that the packers can exploit that. I think you can get monster games. From basically rogers devante aaron jones and tanya gets the touchdown there So yeah i say farewell match up against the bangles. I'd probably say the same about the bears to i feel like the bears. Defense is not what it was in two thousand eighteen in the packers offense. You know now is it. Looks like aaron rodgers after last year. I mean i think he's shown that he's still that guy and he loves to torment the bears in this is the week six matchup so i would say this affair will match up i think with the i guess with the packers defense i mean i guess you i would prefer you look for better options. I don't know but You know that's kind of like a middle of the road match for the packers defense. I don't know i. I don't i don't know i'm not that confident. The packers defense you know but we'll see But when it comes to their offense. I think everybody can do. Well i think mcgann the running game. Mike struggle a little bit. But i feel like nobody really can cover devante and rogers. I think you know he. Torments the bears. So i think we'll probably do it again. So yeah it's kind of a middle of the road more towards favorable for that match up then moving onto week number seven. The washington football team comes to town to take on the packers. I think with the running game again. I think it might be a little bit of a struggle. But i do think roger's does well here devante does well tanya when they do. I think they do well here I definitely think that you know this is like i said i think washington. Their defense is built based off of their pass rush. That's their strength. I feel like they're secondary. Is you know the second thing to their pass rush on their defense so i would say that you know when it comes to throwing the football thing. The packers can do well. Running in the ball will be a little bit of a struggle so man of the road but again more towards favorable i think with the packers defense and went up against fits magic. Listen this could be one of those games. Where fitzpatrick throws i mean. You could say you could throw four fifty four touchdowns but you also say he'd go the other way bad game so i would say that depending on. What fitzpatrick does the previous week. That will determine whether you start the packers defense or not if fitzpatrick had a great week. Week before you start the packers defense. If fitzpatrick had had a Had a bad week. I don't think you want to start the i don't. I don't think you wanna start the packers defense. When these two teams meek is fitzpatrick. Does well one game does bad next. You know it's it's weird so yeah that's my thoughts on the week. Seven matchup with washington moving onto week eight now. Roger does play. This can be great match up. The packers go to glendale arizona take on the arizona. Cardinals is thursday night football game. I think when it comes to the packers offense no questions. I think it's a favorable matchup here. I think the packers offense could do well here. I listened the cardinals. Defense they do have playmakers of course buddha baker they bring. Jj watch handler. Jones's coming back. So the defenses respectable. But i feel like they still orange. I don't think there are a dominant unit. So i probably stay away from you. Know not say away. But i i would say you definitely start. I feel comfortable saying it's favorable. Matchup you start. Whoever you want from the packers you know that week should be a very high scoring game. I'm really I'm really excited for this. Game of rogers does play but always. That's what i was gonna say. Probably do not start the packers defense in this game. Because i think highly murray is going to carve up this defense Particularly in the running game will say an interesting match of the giro. Exander going up against the hop. I think that's probably going to happen. So that'll be interesting to say so moving onto week nine and it doesn't get any easier on this packers schedule. The packers go to kansas city to take on patrick mahomes and the kansas city chiefs right off the bat do not start the packers defense. Absolutely not do not do it okay. This'll be the time. Four twenty five game on fox. Hopefully we see rogers and mahomes going at it. I really hope we do. Because we didn't get to see last time. The packers did win that game against matt moore. But i wanna see mahomes versus rogers. I wanted in the super bowl. I didn't get it. let's see hopefully we get it this time. I'm pretty sure. These teams did meet week. Nine back in two thousand eighteen. So yeah. I was hoping this'll be on a sunday night. Football game on sunday night football but our getting joe buck and troy aikman which. I'm not really that big of a fan of as opposed to sunday night football. I like sunday night football better but looking at this game yet. Don't start the packers defense. But i think that the packers can do well against the chiefs defense. I think the packers can definitely moved the ball. They prove that the last time these two teams met and that was back when listen. Aaron rodgers had a good year. But he didn't have the year he had in twenty twenty so he got that offense going up against the defense. Better offense going up against that defense. Aaron jones was really good in that game. Back in twenty nineteen devante. Adams did not play in that game either so if devante plays in this game aaron jones this offense i mean this game could be really fun. We could see a lot of points scored in this game. If both if our rodgers playing in this game if both quarterback playing if everybody's healthy. I'm hoping i mean tyree killed. Davante adams kelsey tanya. N- i mean you know it's going to be amazing if both and of course you got mahomes homes and rogers if desa matchup So i would say it's a favorable match up here. It's going to be tough. I don't think the packers are gonna win the game bought. I think that they will do well here against this defense. Now i know arrowhead is going to be rocking. That crowd is going to be loud. But i think the packers. They'll they'll find success here. The moving onto week number ten. The seattle seahawks comes down to four twenty five game on cbs. Jim nance tony romo actually be a fun game. I think the packers do well here I think you can't go wrong with anybody. I think they'll do well. Just because of the fact that you know these teams know each other very well. And i think that you know. Russell wilson aaron rodgers. It'll be another good matchup. Seahawks defense you know i. I think you can move the ball against them. Devante atoms he does well against the seahawks Aaron jones i think he'll do well here And of course rogers. I think we'll do well here as well. Tanya dwell saw favorable matchup here week eleven however they go to minnesota to take on the vikings one o'clock on fox in minnesota crowd is back Leaned more towards an unfavorable match up here. I think aaron jones struggles here. I feel like the vikings defense is going to be better this year. They made some additions upfront. And i think that's gonna help them tremendously. You know there. Defensively was not that good last year. And i feel like if the defense is better and you got that offense. I think this is a playoff team. I really i do think this is. I think it's wildcard team. However if the if aaron rodgers does not play. I think the vikings win this division. But we'll have to wait and see with that. But i do think that you know with rodgers playing tough manager for the packers. I lean more towards unfavorable here just because of the crowd noise. They don't tend to play well in minnesota. Obviously they did win the last two times you yet. You had no crowd noise and the year before that dow cooked in so. I'm leaning more towards unfavorable here for this game then on to week. Twelve got matthew stafford and the rams coming to town of four twenty five game on fox. Rogers does playing this game. This should be a really good game. I would probably lean towards not starring. The packer defense. Or yeah don't start the packers defense against well seattle. Maybe vikings probably not rams yet probably not either I definitely think the packers could struggle a little bit in this game. Rogers did play well when these two teams met in the playoffs. So i think he could do well here tonya night they could do well. Davante adams going up against jalen ramsey. I don't think he's gonna have his best game but of course you're going to start him. And then of course aaron jones. I mean i'd probably lean towards you. Know that being an unfavorable match for him going up against that front for the rams so yes. It's kind of a middle of the road match up here It's gonna be a tough game. But i think it's gonna be. It's gonna be another great game that you're gonna wanna watch then you got a bye week week. Thirteen then week fourteen. The bears come to town. I think you start everybody here. Crowds gonna be rock and sunday night football if you know. This is the game up to this point. I'm really excited. I mean these teams played each other in lambo on sunday night football last year. The packers absolutely dismantled the bears. And i feel they're going to do the same thing again. If rogers is playing show. yeah. I think it's a favorable matchup here for the packers because they're at home divisional opponents sunday night football grousing buran i. You can't go wrong here with this match our week. Fifteen they go to take on the ravens in baltimore. This should be fun game. Lamar jackson against aaron rodgers. Hopefully one o'clock game on fox or do lean more towards unfavorable. Do not start the packers defense aaron jones. I think they're probably enough to lean on him a little bit. Because i think that you can run the ball on the ravens defense. I think passing is going to be the um so yeah. I think it might be tough match for demonte adams going to begins marlon humphrey and marcus. Peters our marcus. Peters as a big place So yet that's going to be a little bit of a tough match. Their the packers are gonna probably struggle here but Yeah i mean you're probably gonna start everybody but yes. Kind of more of an unfair will match appear for the packers and the players on the team week sixteen. This should be a really fun game. Christmas four thirty game. Brown's come to lambofield to take on the packers. I cannot wait for this game. This game is going to be a lot of fun. I would say this is a favorable match for the packers. Just because they're at home. I think aaron jones might struggle a little bit. I think devante in in rogers do well. Here packers defense. Do not start them this week. Going up against chub and kareem hunt. That's going to be tough to stop. So i would say this is more of a favorable match up because let's be honest it might be a snow game and the packers do well here So i would probably say that Yeah it'd probably favorite match up because of the fact that at home and probably going to have you know the snow to back them up as well But it should be a fun game. I disagree. I'm looking forward to This year week seventy of course roger blitz week seventeen The vikings town sunday night football match up. I think favorable matchup here for the packers just because they're at home. I do think you do not start that defense because the elven cooked absolutely destroys this defense so you probably want to lean towards staying away from them so yeah then we eighteen. They go to detroit as affair will match up. I think you start everybody that week on the packers in are sitting guys but your fantasy championships are probably over by then. I mean that's actually something. I really did. Not factor instant suing the schedule alex. But yeah if you know if that's what you're doing it's a farewell match up for if you're league is still going on favorable match of that week. Lines defense is not that good But we'll see how they are at that point. you know. I like. I been saying like the dan campbell hiring more and more so yeah that is scheduled outlook for the green bay packers and that includes the afc the nfc north of the schedule outlook. So we will begin the nfc west. Next i believe the nfc west. Yes the nfc west and we will be starting off with the san francisco forty niners. So that'll be on the next show so with that we're going to take another quick break. When we come back. I'll be doing. Actually i will be doing my player. Rankings of the players in the nfc west.

Dog all right and we're back here on the gsm see fantasy football podcast for the third segment of today's show. You're gonna do a player rankings of the players in the nfc west. Salvi ranking the players. Who i think can have the best season all the way down to the other players. Well the players that are fantasy worthy worthy of you know being drafted. Because i know obviously there's other players but they're not they don't really have fancy value. So let's get right unless we're gonna go from the bottom all the way up to the top. Where thing is going to be the best player so starting off with the player at the bottom of this list. I have christian kirk. I think the problem with christian kirk is you know. I feel like he could be more consistent Definitely is a talented player on this cardinals team but i do feel like he's going to not get as many targets You know now because you bring an aj green. I think the receiving core for the cardinals is going to be really good. They're going to be an aerial attack. so i think that you know. He's he's still going to you know get his. You know his targets. But i i think he's a guy that you know unless you're doing deeper leagues. I don't think he's going to have you know he's not going to be very impactful on anybody's teams and i don't think he's going to put up a lot of big numbers so i have him. I have him last as a right now After that. I have to sean jackson the problem with him. Is you know injuries. If he stay healthy. I mean this rams offense is gonna look really good. I mean you got him as a deep ball threat with cooper cup and robber woods. You know i. I mean that's going to be pretty good offense for the rams and of course now you got stafford so i'm really excited to see what this offense looks like But i would probably say he's lower on this list. Just because i feel like he's again he's not gonna be as impactful just because i think the injuries are going to be a problem for him so i probably stay away from drafting him and i also just don't think he's gonna a a big numbers now again. If he's as healthy he could be insane. But feel like that can be very impactful than gerald everett. I feel like he could be a sleeper first seattle. I think you know the seahawks really. Don't have a number three wide receiver. And i think he kind of be like that third option for the seahawks and the passing game. So i think you could definitely do. Well he is he was a good tight end for the rams. And i definitely think now with russell wilson he be pretty good so he's another player on this list then after that i would probably say is. Aj green. i feel like aj. Green could do very well in this offense. And i know. I've talked about it on the show a couple of times but just imagine what the offense this offense with d. and aj green from a couple years ago when these guys were in their prime diop is still in his prime at aj. Green is kind of you know. He's he's nearing the end of his career. I think I don't know that's just me because he's dealt with injuries the past couple of years but i hope i'm wrong the guy i think he's still he still got some juice left in the tank though. I definitely do believe that. But i feel like he's more towards the end of his career. I hope i'm wrong By saying that. I'm just saying that because of the injuries them but yeah i think he probably the next player on this list he again. If let's say diop gets injured. Knock on wood. That happen you know. Then he'll probably see an increase in targets. I mean maybe it's just you know he's coming back he just could not you know you can find a spot really in the offense with the bengals joe. Borough really did not use them as his favourite target. So you you know maybe that had something to do with it and also you know coming back from the injury. Probably wasn't that easy for him so maybe in year. Two coming back from the injury room. Another year removed from the injury. Maybe that you know. Maybe that helps him and i hope it does because agent. Green's a good player. And i hope he does well so i'd probably say the next player on this list. Is i want to say chase edmunds. I think you know when it comes to pp pr leagues and have p p r leagues definitely is going to have more of an impact I feel like. I don't really know what the running back situation is gonna be. 'cause i do have james connor next after chase edmunds i've james. Connor had of chase edmunds. Just because he is going to be most likely the three down running back. So that's why have him ahead of chase admins. But you know i feel like chase. Edmunds could definitely take the role from james connor. If james connor is inefficient because james conner has dealt with injuries over the past couple of seasons and that really does affect his season. So it's gonna be interesting to see what happens with that. But i feel like james james conroy. Put ahead of chase edmunds. Just because he's going to be the three down back most likely but we'll see also the cardinals they liked the air it out. So that's another reason for that. So yeah. I talked about chase edmunds and james connor. Moving onto the next player on this list. I have tyler higby. I think tyler be could do very well this year. You know the more that i think about it I what stafford he could do. Well here you know. He was a solid tight end in some games last year and he definitely helped me out when i needed a tight end late in the season back in two thousand nineteen when i won my fantasy league so i feel like you could definitely be. Well he could do well here with matthew stafford nine definitely thinking be impactful so you know if you build on your team and your desperate for tight end towards the end of your drafts and highly. Higby is still there. I see you go for it and you get him. Just because again. I feel like what stafford he's gonna put up good numbers so then moving on i included jimmy garoppolo here. I feel like if he does play over the course of full season. I think he'll do okay. But i feel like he's not gonna put up you know he's going to put a monster numbers. I dunno. i could be wrong. But i feel like there's more than like the other players on this list. I just could not. I didn't want to put them over garoppolo over them. So i have garoppolo lower on this list and just started because the fact of the uncertainty you know him getting injured trae lines gonna start. I didn't include trae lance year But you know. I feel like garoppolo. If he doesn't play you know. I feel like trae lance Definitely is going to impact his numbers. So then after that. I probably say probably didn't put him on the list. I forgot to put him here. Approach the atom. But i would say we're he most probably come after that i think again forty nine. It's got of crowded backfield. So i feel like that's going impact his numbers but i feel like if he can have a good season he could do well and he could definitely be a solid rb to for your team but i feel like again. They drafted a running back. Jeff wilson you know. He had a good season with the forty niners last year in the games that he did plan. So it's gonna be tough for most stirred. But i feel like again if he stays healthy and plays well he could take back that lead running back role so then after that guy than i am very high on this year and i'm going to be looking at for You know my at least my flex spot for my team is brandon. I think is a good player. I think that he you know. He's one of the weapons on this team and him and deebo samuel. Who's next on this list. I feel like they have similar skill. Sets and i feel like if they're both healthy there are gonna be guys that are going to have good seasons also because they're very versatile as well they can catch out of the backfield. They do the jet sweeps and all that. And that's what makes this forty niners. Offense dangerous is the versatility you know at their position at the various positions on this offense so yet brandon. I you can. Then i d bows slightly ahead of him. But it's definitely close so then. After that i'd say tyler lockett i have over both of those guys because listen tyler. Lockett is boomer boss. But he definitely has those weeks where he goes off. I mean like. I talked about with The cardinals game last year where he had forty five points. I mean the guy was amazing in that game. And it's just if he's more consistent. This guy's solid fantasy player. I i really think that he's a guy you want to have on your team guy that i on my my team last year before. I traded him You know because unfortunately you know. I traded him and then my one friend who does not have good luck in fantasy. I and he ended up having his best week. But you know the person. I did trade him to you know. Try to lock a drop. Forty five against himself. He doesn't have very good luck in fantasy. But you know. I love my team after draft night. Retire lock it. He was my flex option. But i feel like you know with boomer bust potential. You don't really want to have him as like your wide receiver too. But i still think he's going to have a good season you know. He's the second wide receiver. I think the number two wide receiver on this team. But he's very good. He's very good. He just got to be more consistent. But i i think he'll still be. You know a solid fancy option. It's just you know you gotta worry about the boomer bust when it comes to him so then after that i have chris carson the problem with chris carson is. He doesn't stay healthy and he gets injured a lot. I think when he's healthy. He's a solid running back and definitely a solid rb to on your team. It's just the problem is the guy just does not stay healthy and if he stays healthy i mean he's running back So that's why have them a little bit lower. Obviously if he plays over the course of a full season than you know than i i would rank them higher also. You know he did. He's had some fluke injuries as well. I do remember the I i believe it was a player on the cowboys. he like. You know. I i don't i don't remember the play. I think he likes slammed cars into the ground or something. I don't remember but there was a dirty incident with the cowboys and they injured. Chris carson and looked chris carson was going to be out for the whole year and he came back. But you know that was kind of a fluke injury but yeah he's dealt with some foot injuries. I believe and stuff like that so you know some leg injury so i'm hoping that chris carson does stay healthy because the guy is good player if he stays healthy you know. And he's a good fantasy option at running back spot but i have ranked it really the best running back. You know this year for You know the nfc west. I've camakers came acres next player on this list. I feel like he's going to have a really good season. I think he's going to be a solid rb to for a lot of teams. I think now with matthew stafford in the fold that's going to help his fantasy draft stock a lot. So i'm putting a lot of stock in camakers this year. I think he's going to do really well last couple games last year he was really good and i feel like over the course of a full season as the lead running back. I think he's a guy that is going to have a good season. And you know malcolm brown is no longer on the team anymore. So really the only competition. I believe with the you know. Getting carries is with daryl henderson But i probably put camakers ahead of darryl henderson but yeah i'm really high came acres this year. I probably put darrow henderson like lower. Unless i didn't include them here but i probably put them between you know like gerald everett and sean jackson. You know or you know between job evident christian kirk around that area somewhere like that Maybe a little bit higher but Yeah camakers makers. I'm really high on this year. I think he's going to do really good for the rams so then moving on the next player i would say cooper cup I think he's going to have one of his best seasons when matthew stafford. I think matthew stafford's really going to elevate both wide receivers the big wide receivers on this team robber woods and kubrick cobb. I do have rubber. Woods ahead of cooper cup. I think robert woods is more consistent option. So that's why. I have him slightly eddie cooper cup but i think both of these guys are going to do really well with matthew stafford and i think matthew stafford like i've been talking about with this supporting cast. I think this is one of if not the best supporting cast. That matthew stafford has had since he's entered the league. Obviously none of these guys are talented. Magnetron i've said that before but this is this could be one of the best supporting cast that matthew stafford has ever had it could be his best supporting cast that he's ever had and i them both to put a massive numbers. They're definitely going to be taken within the first couple of rounds so i would say yeah like go out and go after these guys because they are going to be really good but i would say robert woods. I'd put kupfer cup just because i feel like robert. Woods is the more consistent option of the two wide receiver. So then after that. I have george. Kettle obviously did not play a lot of games last year because he dealt with a lot of injuries but i feel like you know with him coming back for full season and like i said i. I don't really think it matters who the quarterback is. I think he could do well with regardless. Who are whoever. The quarterback is i feel like george cadle is going to do well and You know i. I feel like he's going to have a bounce back season definitely. A guy that a lot of people are going to want to take early in their drafts. And i think he's going to have a great season plays over the course of full season. He's gonna have a really good years. Have a solid year. So yeah you'll be the next player on this list. Then after that. I have the andre hawkins. Obviously he didn't have his best season that we're accustomed to seeing but i feel like this year in year two of this system with cliff kingsbury. I feel like he's going to be. He's going to be better this year. He's going to be better. I think that he's going to have double digit touchdowns because he did not have that last year. He's gonna to double digit touchdowns. Id this offense collectively for the cardinals is going to be better than it was last year and i expect the cardinals to make the playoffs this year. I think there are wildcard team. I i really. I really do believe that. So that's my thoughts on the hop. I think again. He's one of the top wide receivers in the league. He's proved that numerous times. And i think he's gonna prove that once again. So the andre hawkins next player on this list then after that i have decay metcalf i feel like this could be decay. Metcalfe's best season. They'll sometimes you know maybe a little bit more a little more consistent. But i feel like number one. I think he's in a wide receiver on this team. Russell wilson trust him. And i think that he's going to have maybe his best season so far as a pro. Also he's going to work on. You know not showboating you know. And making sure he's in the end zone. Obviously that had happened once. You know. i'm just you know kind of kidding around with that You know in the cowboys game but listen. The guy played really hard You know let's go back to the cardinals game again. you know. Russell wilson doors that interception brubaker. Pick it off. We think it's going to be pick six but decay metcalf runs down so the guy plays really hard. I i think he did learn his lesson. Obviously after the play with dallas. So you know. I i just i was just saying that but i mean everybody really did only happen once but You know he's a great player. One of the top ten wide receiver in fantasy. So he's an ex player on this list then after that. I have matthew stafford. I i talked about it with the wide receivers of the rams. I think this could be stafford's best season. Possibly with the weapons that he has even went to sean jackson. And of course tyler via tight end. He's got so many weapons around around him. It's going to be hard not to succeed. And also he has a really good offensive line. this could be one of stafford's best seasons and he could be in the conversation for mvp. This year i do believe that with the supporting cast around him. I think he could be really good. So i would say you know. He's probably number three on this list. He's definitely shouted. Qb one this year. I i am definitely comfortable saying that. I feel like he's always that. But i feel particularly with this year with the offensive line. The running game the wide receivers. I mean you can't go wrong with that I think matthew stafford's going to have a tremendous season. And i'm really looking forward to see how he does with the rams so then coming in at number two slightly ahead of matthew stafford Is russell wilson Russell wilson did had a great season. Last year obviously did kind of tail off towards the end of the season with offensive line problems and stuff like that but overall he did have a very good season. I mean it looked like he was going to run away with the mvp early on in the season. But obviously you know again the offensive line some injuries. That really did not help out the seahawks a lot you know so. I do anticipate that. They're going to be russell. Isn't going to be fine. I mean. I don't think he's gone there. There's really no cause for concern when it comes to russell. Wilson think the seahawks are going to be fine Russell wilson is going to be fine. Dudes a solid qb one. of course. i do worry sometimes. He does have games where he does really bad. But they're not not a lot but there. There are like one or two games during the year where he just pass single digit points. And you're like whoa. How how does that happen with this guy. But i think that he's going to have another great season. The seahawks are going to be a good team. I think they're going to be a playoff team. this nfc west collectively is the best division football. I really there's not really a bit if all these teams are healthy. There's really you can't really say there's a bad team in the division it's going to be dogfight to the end In the seahawks are going to be right in the middle of it. I honestly think they beyond actually. I think they're probably the worst team in the division actually But we'll see what happens. i again russell wilson. He's going to be the reason why they're in the thick of it though and i anticipate he's going to have another great season so i put him in number two and that number one. I actually have cuyler. Murray ahead of russell wilson kyla murray twenty touchdowns his rookie season twenty six touchdowns last year. He you know. Increase the by six. And he i believe. He had twelve rushing touchdowns street a lot of rushing touchdowns. So the guy's a fantasy monster. And i feel like it's going to carry over to this year. Two they bring. Aj green obviously james connors coming over from the steelers so they bring in some veteran players. They did bring in a lot of veteran players. Jj watt And then also they brought him matt prater At the kicking swap. But when you talk about thailand. Murray i think this cardinals teams can be really good. I think they have a lot of weapons around him. And i think him and diop. We're going to do even better in year. Two and i feel like he's gonna throw thirty plus touchdowns this year. I am comfortable in saying that. I really like marie. This year in fantasy. I think he's going to be a solid. Qb one this year in fantasy. I think he's going to be a top three fantasy. Qb when i did my top ten fantasy qb's he was in my top three. So yeah column. I think is that number one. So la- going through the list again. So go from top to bottom so cuyler than i had. Russell wilson matthew stafford decay. Metcalf the andre hopkins. George kettle robert woods cooper cup camakers chris carson tyler lockett deebo samuel brandon. Iu jimmy garoppolo tyler. Higby james connor. Aj green gerald everett. Sean jackson and christian kirk. And i actually had chase edmunds Inbetween james connor and aj green at him also remastered. I would say goes slightly ahead of jimmy garoppolo so yeah. Those are My rankings for the players in the nfc west. So then i'll be moving over to the afc on the next show doing the afc east so that will be on the next show so again. We weren't really fast. I can't believe we're now already in. Afc with this stuff It's it's crazy. How are you really is crazy. How time flies with the stuff. I mean i'm already on my twenty fifth show. I mean it's just it's just crazy all time flies but yeah so with that we're gonna take our final break the show when we come back i will reveal my next ten picks in my fantasy mock draft in that will conclude the show so stick around.

Just tied nc in the search bar bound all right and we're back here on the c. Fantasy football podcast for the final segment of today's show. I'm going to reveal the next ten picks in my fantasy mock draft. So let's get right into that so starting off in this list robber woods. I have as the first pick in the fourth round. Now you know. I i think i kind of made a little bit mistake because i have three straight rams players to in the fourth round. I robert woods first. And then after that cooper cop then camakers. I feel like they could go in the third round again. Like there's a lot of good players you know so it was. It was tough but I think you could probably. I could definitely switch a couple of players from the third round and put them here and put that move them up. Because stafford i think increases their fantasy value. But y- i have them. I have these three players in as my first three picks in the third round. So robert woods i think is the most consistent of the to artie resided. Talk about that in the previous segment I think he's a reliable fantasy option. I think he's the number one option on this team. you know. he's very consistent. And i i just feel like he's definitely a guy you want to have on your team. I think with matthew stafford. He's gonna put a monster numbers this season and he's going east. He's a c. fantasy. That's the other thing too. What these guys. Both him and cooper. I mean again. Robert woods is more option. Both of these guys are safe. Fantasy picks you know. You really can't go wrong with drafting these guys now. With matthew stafford it elevates their fantasy stock and their numbers are going to be really good this year now with matthew stafford coming into the fold and being their quarterback so yet robert woods air. I then cooper cop. Like i said with robin woods and like i said wolf them. They're both safe picks Cooper cop i feel like is the less of the two guys just because of the consistency. I mean cooper cop is still really good. i just feel like proper. Woods is the more consistent option. But he cooper copper still really good definitely a solid number two wide receiver on your fantasy team and a guy you wanna have because again with matthew stafford. He's going to put up huge numbers this year. I feel like and you can't go wrong with drafting i'm i. I do think he's going to have a really good season with the rams. Obviously he did deal with that. Acl that acl tear back in two thousand eighteen. That made him. Mr remainder of that season came back in two thousand nineteen was pretty good. Last year was also pretty good as well Obviously the rams they did struggle in twenty nineteen a little bit because you know for whatever reason The wheels kind of fell off the super bowl hangover really affected them. But yeah they they really needed. Cooper cop You know. I think back in two thousand eighteen. The rams really did miss cooper cup in that super bowl but yeah he's again a safe pick solid number two wide receiver for your team. You can't go wrong with drafting him. He would be the next pick. Then after that. I have camakers feel they can makers going to have a really big year kind of talked about in the last segment i feel cam acres is a guy that you know. I think he cemented himself as the lead running back in l. a. and i think he's definitely going to be a solid rb to for your team. I think he definitely proved that. And i feel like with matthew stafford with the offensive line the continuity that. He's going to be good this year. I do believe that Obviously you don't want to overdraft for camakers. I feel like he's kind of a guy that a lot of people are going to sit on a little bit in the first couple rounds and i think this is probably the appropriate place where you a draft. Maybe i put him a little bit too high. Maybe he could even go in the fifth round. But i put him in the fourth round. Because you know what i think. By this point people are trying to fill you know. They're running back spots Because like i talked about the running back position is a is a position that you know is very valuable. I think it's the most valued position in fantasy. If you don't have to good running backs you know you're not gonna have the best season now. Obviously it makes up for it. If you have really good wide receivers and quarterbacks but i know a couple of years ago. I did not draft good running backs. I drafted devante freeman jerem mckinnon as my two running backs and they played a combined two games for me in two thousand eighteen and they were both on the giant. They weren't both on the is remind. No i'm thinking of dion lewis. Because i also had him Now but german german and carved the giants last year but yeah they played a combine two games in two thousand eighteen german and then played all so you know you gotta you gotta make sure you have good running back. I keep that camakers is a guy that you know. I feel like it's the kind of asleep or going into the strap. But i think some people are going to be looking to you know. Try to get him. Because you know like i said he's showed off in the last couple of games with the rams last year and i definitely think that over the course of a full season. If he's the lead running back i think he's gonna put a lot of points and he's going to be a decent fantasy option. He's going to be a decent rb to if you get him so then moving onto the next player on this list. I have allen robinson i think allen robinson you know i think he's a guy that's kind of a safe pick. I would say you know as i'm doing this. I think he's a safe pick. You know. I think he could play with whoever at the quarterback spot. I think with andy dalton with justin fields. I don't think it's really gonna matter. I think he's going to be good with. Whoever is the quarterback you know for this for the bears. And and i think he's proved to be a good fantasy option. You know obviously with the bears. He's been the what the bears he's been pretty good. He's definitely been pretty good and obviously he was. You know. I think he was good last year. You know with. Nick foles and trubisky. You know so. I think he's in a better spot now with justin fields. I think he's a much better spy. Andy dolan justin veal type thing. Andy dalton is an upgrade over. Nick foles and i think justin fields once he comes in. I mean i both of them are upgrades over trubisky I think justin fields is definitely eventually going to start. He's going to be the more explosive option for allen robinson. I think he'll bring the best out now in robinson But yeah i mean. You can't go wrong with alan roms and i think he's a i would say he's a solid wide receiver to for teams At least for me. I mean i know my friend. Last year he had allen. Robinson and terry maclaurin not. It's not bad but i'd rather have better receivers. He did go all in on running backs last year. Too but You know. I feel like without robinson i could see him as a number two wide receiver on your team. Flex option but like. I said you can't really go wrong with it. Because i think andy dalton and justin fields i think you know. Aren't you know. I think aren't going to hurt his fantasy value. But there's not a lot of weapons on the bears offense as the other thing you gotta worry about. So you know because defenses then could just look to shutdown allen robinson and you know make him a non factor. So that's something you do have to. You know maybe worry about a little bit but Outside of that. I think he's a guy that you know if you need a wide receiver to or flex option. He's you know he's an option you know. So we'd be the next big then after that. I have antonio gibson. He's like camakers definitely played. Well you know towards the end of last year. I think he's definitely a solid rb to for your team. I think he's another guy that's gonna fly under the radar. A lot of drafts. And i feel like you know in this washington football team offense. I've talked about it a lot. You know. I feel like their offense is going to be really good and i think that's going to really help out gibson you know bring i like i love what they did. Curtis samuel ryan fitzpatrick. Now you bring in fitzpatrick does worry me. Obviously with turnovers. I talked about that. A million times But you know. I i feel like washington d. or it could be a very well balanced team having both a good defense in both a good offense. So that's going to jobs. Gibson out a lot i think over the course full season And hopefully doesn't deal with injuries because he didn't have you know he was dealing with injuries towards the end of last year I think that if he's healthy. I think he's going to be solid rb to for your team and a guy that you are going to wanna get for your team You know if you're looking for that rb to so then after that. I have chris godwin these second wide receiver the number two receiver on the tampa bay buccaneers. Obviously he also dealt with some injuries last year. But i think if he stays healthy. He's going to be good once again and obviously with tom. Brady you know. I think he's going to be good. I mean this brooks offense. I mean i i mean i mean what can you say about it. I mean everybody's back you know brady. He just doesn't seem like he wants to retire. Even though i did talk about you know he's talking about saying that he's near the end of his career and we'll see if e- you know lives up to that because i really don't think so. I think that you know when you have an offensive line. You have all these weapons. I mean i. Don't i mean he could play for however long he wants really. I mean as long as he's protected and these guys are all healthy. It's not really gonna matter. It really is not going to matter. You know so You know godwin is going to be a big part of that offense. I feel like he's more of the. I feel like when mike evans people are going to take mike evans over chris. Godwin i feel godwin. Might be maybe the slightly the more consistent option when he's healthy. I don't know maybe that's just me. Sometimes mike evans lay some dodds Godwin did garden was last year. He didn't miss a lot of game. A couple of games You know. I just feel like again. Like what i talked about. Brady you know in your to this system. I n you know year two with all these guys you know. The connections are gonna be stronger. They're going to have more chemistry. So i don't really think it's you know. The the the cobwebs are out of this offense they. They're ready to go now and they want super bowl. I give them a lot of credit for that. You know going through everything that happened last year with covert and everything you know the fact that they were able to string it together when a super bowl i mean. It's incredible you know. And chris godman was a big part of that and i just feel like you know again. He's going to have a good season if he stays healthy Definitely solid or be rb solid wide receiver for you know your teams. I would look to him more as a wide receiver to on your teams You know I know my friend. He had i think he had both mike. Evans and chris godwin on his team If i'm not mistaken i could be wrong. I think he'd well regardless you know. Both buccaneers wide receivers. I can't remember off the top of my head if he had both of them. But i'm No he had golladay and godwin. Yeah and then he had james but anyways that's a completely different thing but i'm yet with the wide receivers for the box. You know you can't go wrong. All three of them are going to be really good You know th they're receiving core is insane. Their offense is insane. And i expect godwin. If he's healthy to be good and be reliable fantasy option Once again so now moving onto the next player on this list. I have j. k. dobbins. I think he's a solid rb to for your team. I think you know with mark. Ingram leaving i think. Now it's now he's going to be you know sharon carries with gus edwards. They did bring back because edwards. But i don't know. I mean i was having some conversations with my friends. You know not really that i on. Jk because of gus edwards. I still feel like with j. k. You know what happened last year. He you know as mark ingram kind of faded out of the offense last year. You know jacob. Dobbs was good and he was averaging they. My friend said he was averaging like sixteen points a game last year. And that's really all you need them if he's going to be our two. That's those are solid. Rb two numbers. And i feel like listen. He's going into year two. And i feel like now working out of the fold. You're only really sharing carries with gus edwards. But of course yes. You have to think about lamar jackson. Because you know lamar jackson. He's gonna you know he's gonna run the ball to so that's you also get a factor that in as well but i still think that jacob could be a number a number two running back for your team. I mean maybe even a flex option if you're not if you're kind of in the same boat as some of my friends with with With jk. but i dunno. I feel for me. He could still be an rb to for your team. I mean i'll you know. Last year. I took mark ingram and i was expecting marketing. Still be the lead running back for the ravens. Because he had. He had a great season with the ravens at twenty nineteen really was my rb one in twenty nineteen because drafted girlie and girly was really not that good. But you know it didn't really work out You know now. I'm talking about k. Like he's going to be in the number one running back and go said words could steal some carries from them. So i don't know. I don't have a good track record. I guess with the ravens. But yet jacob had probably the next player on this because i don't see him falling like that fond dress like wh where do people think he's going to go. I mean i don't think he should be drafted in the sixth seventh round. I feel like this is a a you know. A realistic place deport him. This ceiling. i guess but Yet jk dobbins. I think solid rb to for your team. You'd be the next player on this list. Then after that. I would say josh jacobs would be the next player on this list now. Josh jacobs some people are very frustrated with you. Know didn't live up to his expectations last year But i i still think when you look at this raiders offense. There's not a ton of weapons i mean. I know they did bring in john brown. Yes lebron. John brown Henry rugs. I think is gonna take on an even bigger role this year and hunter renfro waller. Yes they do have weapons on the steam. This is really just the offensive line. I think is probably the issue but jacobs healthy. I think that people are going to wanna take because listen he does. He does the well. He does have very good games I i do think that the kenyan drake signing you know maybe that kind of you know raises some red flags because kenyan drake you know he could take away some carries from jacob so i think that could be a problem I think kenyan drake could be slightly better than devante booker. But we'll have to see. But yeah i feel like jacobs would probably be the next player. I think he could be an rb too. I really do and you know maybe you know. Depending on how deep your team is. Maybe he could be a flex option. I think people if you're skeptical of him. Try to get them as some depth. Or maybe you're flexible option But i don't know. I feel like he's an rb to still so i put him next then after that so then after that i would see david montgomery probably next. I think he's gonna be top twelve running back this year. I kind of had them in my top ten. But i forgot about jonathan taylor so i kind of bumped him in mixing down. I think mixing above david montgomery but then montgomery had really good season last year. He's another guy that i'm high on this this season. I feel like he's gonna do well. He did listen like back in twenty nineteen. I think that's when he was drafted. Did not do that. Good twenty twenty towards the end was doing really good was averaging you know really like about twenty points game. I mean that's really good. And i you know i'll be looking to maybe get him as rb to We'll see how he does now. With andy dalton and the fold and and justin fields. Because like. I said there's not a lot of weapons on the bears offense but i feel like david montgomery could definitely do. Well you know. I think that he's going to have a good season. You did show you something last year. And i feel like people have to you know look into that and say oh maybe Maybe you take a chance on him. I don't know. But yeah david montgomery next player on this list and then finally i would say robber. Tanya includes the fourth round and this is based on the fact that aaron rodgers is going to be the quarterback for the packers. Aaron rodgers not the quarterback for the packers. Then i'd probably switch him and mark andrews You know because robert. John i think is going to be a top five tight end this year if rogers does play now. Roger doesn't play that really your driver tanya awat that hurts his fantasy value a lot but i think if rogers does play an amount has degrade season last year. Took a major step forward. He's working out. George cadle and that really definitely paid off. Because you know looked like j sternberg was going to be you know the next tight end for the packers and then tonkin just came out of nowhere you know. And he's got three touchdowns against atlanta and then you know it. The rest is history in was very good last year. A guy that i picked up you know late in the year because you know he was on at least three teams in my league last year. And then i picked him off because you know my tight end. Luck was terrible last year. You know because. I drafted hurts. He didn't do anything in. I picked up. Jared cook and it was okay for a little bit. And then he wasn't doing anything you know. So i if the tight end spot is is so. It's so frustrating. It's a very frustrating position. When it comes to fantasy but like i said if robert tanya n- if our all sorry aaron rodgers does play robert. Tanya is going to be really good. I mean he had that streak where he had. He had touched Receptions in four or five straight games you know so that's that's really what helps amounted is rogers. Uses him in the red zone a lot. And that's really what helps out his fantasy value. So if rogers does play robert downey as is you know going to be taken within the first four or five rounds them at the end of the fourth round but you could probably make the argument that he could be Be lower. But i think it's because of roger's does play that's probably where i put them in the fourth round But if not then i think mark andrews would probably be the next tight and after the big three because i did talk about how there's that drop off between the big three and you know the rest of the tight ends end. Listen the tight end. Spot is a very frustrating position. And i'm looking to get a tight end. That is going to be consistent for me and listen. I'm hoping that you know. I get one of the big three but i i know it will definitely affect one of the positions one of the other positions like the wide receiver spot or the running back spot. So i'll have to think about these things when i draft but yes that is That is that those in the next ten picks in my fantasy mock draft they did say mark andrews would be We'll go ahead of tanya if If rogers doesn't play so that kinda gives you a brief preview as to who will be in. The i believe now is the fifth round of my mock draft so we're moving right along with the mock draft. I mean there's some there's a lot of players that could definitely be moved around I definitely think. I could have probably include like i said i probably couldn't have included the rams wide receivers. You know in the third round. But i don't know i guess it was brother people that i was kind of i kind of liked more. But you know we'll see how my drafts go because obviously i don't think you know how my mock draft is playing out. I do not think it is going to be march. Gonna be anywhere near you know the drafts i end up doing you know in a month or so which again it is. Unbelievable that we are. We are very close to the beginning of fancy drafts. I mean i don't maybe some drafts have already happened. But that's a bad idea. You don't wanna draft. That's the other thing. You don't wanna do your drafts too early. Because and if injuries happen and all that you know then you know that that you then you're kind of your your your team's messed up then and you gotta scramble to try to get all the players and stuff but yeah so the next time we will. I will unveil my next ten picks in my fantasy mock draft so with that. That is all the time that we have for today. I thank you for listening.

Make sure to find the podcast. It'll be right after the show. Make sure you're following the odd couple of fsr on twitter. Make sure you listen to tj. By the way every saturday one two three eastern on up on game lavar arrington. I am on saturday nights with arnie. Spaniard eleven pm eastern the big story. I think that really kind of resonated in sports throughout the day. Tj it was really dating back to last night that monday night football game between the jaguars and the saints the saints win twenty three to twenty one. But if you watch the game you know it wasn't really all that competitive as the jacksonville. Jaguars scored eighteen of their twenty. One points in the fourth quarter when it was pretty clear that you know. Let's be honest. Nobody was really trying and it kind of leads to what we have seen from the jaguars so far. They lost their opener to the browns. They lose that one twenty three to thirteen thirty four points. Total thirty one of them coming in the fourth quarter and another. If you wanna call it disappointing. I don't know if you wanna call a disappointing. Because his much around but but lackluster effort from trevor lawrence. Fourteen of twenty three passing one hundred thirteen yards. No touchdowns looked rush. Looked uncomfortable in the pocket. What did you make last night. Because the jacksonville jaguars tj had the number one pick had an iconic coach. Come from the college level to the pros. And i think there were a lot of people. I even heard doug during the break kind of talking about it on his show that a lot of us bought this cool eight urban meyer. He's a motivator. He's a legend. He recruited a lot of these guys. They know him they respect them. They trust them and right now. This looks like the same old. Jags just with a new head coach. A new quarterback. What do you expect that. That's how i look at it. Because they had the first pick for a reason. They're not a player away. They're not a trevor lawrence away. They multiple players away just from being a competitive team. Now whatever meyer should bring to them is swagger confidence but that can only do so much when the teams your plan they will head s. wagon to confidence but they also had a player. Let me jump into as a former player. Not only swagger confidence. But do you feel like there's even a little bit more something not that people are circling the jaguars on the schedule. But oh you know hey. Hotshot coach hey rookie quarterback. That's been getting all this buzz. All off season long is there. Is there anything extra there where again. I'm not saying that you know the tennessee. Titans on a quest for a super bowl have the jaguar circle on their schedule. But i feel like that might be part of it too. Where they're saying. Wait a second. Now we're gonna show this rookie exactly what this league is like to show this coach that you're not in the big ten anymore really. It's not exactly the easiest as division. Either tennessee's going to be pretty good guy houston in the culture going to be pretty good. It's so that division is an easy. But i believe remind took the job because they had the first pick it. He wanted trevor lawrence as quarterback. If he's able in the next couple of years to get key players is certain positions in free agency draft. They can turn things around if they can't do that. He'll be unsuccessful. The nfl is a players league. Coaching needs to be there but it is a players lee players. You win not so good players. You're not gonna win. They need more good players. You brought up earlier in the show that the key for the jaguars. It's not to win. Thirteen games and go to the plan. That's not realistic. It's to show improvement over the course of the year build into the off season when free agents might be interested in coming when you're obviously going to be in a position to get more good draft. Picks is there anything they can do this. You can't flip the roster but this also isn't the the miami dolphins that are going to trade away. Every asset they have to accumulate draft picks urban. Meyer takes this job understanding that it's going to be a three year rebuild and just giving away your one so we understand that you're not going to solve all your problems in the next between now and week one but is there anything they can do during the season to just. I don't know if put a better product on the field is the right way. I don't even know how to exactly say it but just to to show signs of progress to do what you need to do to build for the long term because obviously with these two Like i said it's not going to be four. Five six year rebuild. They wanna win. Relatively soon with coach that came to college came from college expecting to win. Pretty quickly this thing i found dow is just not going to get their butts kicked. They're gonna compete. They do have professional players. It's just a matter of do they have enough. Good player traded their best. I wouldn't say their best one of their better defensive players the to the pittsburgh steelers and so that shows you their thinking towards the future when when you start doing things that nature in so they know that it's a process of in is not going to happen overnight. But they need to see progress. As the season. Progresses dot can't stress that enough. You wanna see progress. You wanna see. You're young players improving and getting better. If you're seeing that now you gotta chance fair enough. Let's switch gears really quickly to the other side of the the you know the other side line really for lack of a better term the new orleans saints and obviously the big story coming out of this one Sean payton on tuesday did not officially name a starter in would not commit to jameis winston being the long-term answer quarterback but anybody who watched that game knows that jesus was phenomenal to his credit. He played really well. Nine ten passing those two touchdown passes. What did you see from james. Not only from a from a winning the job perspective but more importantly what did you see from him in terms of a guy that in a couple of weeks. He is going to have to go up against tom. brady he. Is gonna have to go up against sam darnold in that. You know the the coaching staff there with the carolina panthers. They're going to play good teams. They obviously won the division last year. So we know that the new orleans saints do have a tough schedule starting with the packers in week one forget when the job not when the jameis winston is going to win this job. Did that look like a guy last night. With the help of sean payton that can potentially. Maybe maybe this team better than we thought they were. Because i think a lot of a said it's tampa's division it's over the saints will be lucky to get a wild card. What did you see from james last night. I was impressed. And there's if you weren't impressed with james winston something's wrong. I thought he played. He played well. He made the plays he made. Some good throws receivers did make some good catches as well but jamie's quarterback like i expect him to do these type of things. He's a big. He's a national championship winner. You expect them to have this type of success again. It's it's it's just fascinating to think about where he was when you look back on the tampa bay situation from two years ago he goes there. We all know the thirty the thirty and thirty year. Where he had thirty touchdown thirty interceptions thirty plus touchdowns thirty plus interceptions. What do you attribute. The last jameis winston we saw in tampa to to the jameis winston. We saw last night. I understand it was great. It was the preseason. There's you're playing. The jags who might be the least talented team in the nfl. But james looked really good. Is it strictly. The coaching from sean payton is at the tutelage of drew brees. Was there something. That bruce arians was doing wrong because like i said this looks like a completely different guy than the last time we saw him with tampa. I think it was a combination of everything. Him sitton behind drew understanding how to play. The quarterback position jamie's came straight leagues starter number. One pick being with sean payton just under. It's okay to check it down. I don't always have to get the big play. Let me just get positive. Yards can go broke. Put money in the bank so to speak and i believe he learned he. He's jameis winston is a. He's a risk taker. that's his personality and real quick. That is bruce arians personality to right no risk it no biscuit risk it no right and so he just wristed to risk too much too much risk it none of biscuit and so. He's a risk taker. He's gonna throw interceptions again. Just limit them because there's times when you risk it when you make a big play. I can grant when i win in singing the blues. When i lou i liked that one and so you gotta take the good with the bad. I just don't want too much bad. That's the probably. And i believe he learned from it. I rod truly believe. He'll learn from the mistakes he made in new tampa in new orleans. They have a quarterback that can push the ball down the field. He's mobile but he's not gonna run is pick up. They get mike. Thomas back man look out and where is that fine line for champagne because obviously the physical tools. There's no doubt that they're there. But as you said jameis winston there are times where maybe he trust the physical tools too much and so it's kind of that thing know from the outside. It feels like one of those you want him to be is a reason couple of things. There's a reason he was the number one overall pick in the draft. There was a reason that the tampa bay bucks believe that he was the face of the franchise but there was also a reason that he was a free agent. And i know we talked to in the last last hour about that. He probably would have been back in tampa. Tom brady doesn't become available. But where is that fine line because the talent is there really. I don't wanna say win. The division win the super bowl. Whatever but the talent is there to win a lot of games but you have to find the the kind of risk the risk reward kind of kind of that juggling act of letting this guy be him letting him do what his physical tools led him do without having him beach. Because as you said. Tj in the first hour throwing completions has never been the problem for jameis winston. Sometimes they just go into the other team's hands right. He throws completion. This who who's gonna catch them completions in. I truly believe watching drew pretty sheer probably was like wow this deficiency that he operated at and he was so effective and i guarantee j. Mrs watching these games in like dude is really checking a ball down at throwing underneath so much any so successful. And i guarantee has some conversations withdrew in and it was just an a piffle for james like doing it this whole time and i truly believe he's gonna have a hell of a season in. When mike thomas comes back the saints going to be rolling because my thomas is one of the best receivers in the league. He just been forgot about because he was hurt last year but he won't come back into share remind people exactly who we is last quick one four saints upside saints upside as a team this year. I think everybody kind of said okay. It's the box division the saints They had their on whatever. I'm not saying they're going to topple the bucks bucks. Most talented rosters in the league. But but can the saints be one of those upper-echelon wildcard teams. You know an eleven. I guess it'd be like what eleven in six twelve and five type team or even if they don't win the division they can kind of hang if they get that road playoff game around one. The saints are always going to be pretty good. Sean payton is a hell of a coach. He's not gonna be mediocre badges. Something he's not going to be a part of if jameis winston does is part. That defense is going to be pretty solid i. It's a matter of. They're not going to be better than than the bucks to bucks. Return every player from a team that just one of super bowl. A confidence is going to be sky. Ha they got. Mr brady under center really good there. You look at the entirety of their team and you say whereas a weakness. I don't see one. If they can stay healthy two bucks. They would have to be a long shot. I mean it's not even close to win that division. But i believe the saints just because of their past success in sean payton coach. They're going to be competitive with everybody. And i do believe. Don't make the playoffs. The saints seem to have their quarterback jameis winston. The chicago bears and not so much which makes what matinee did this week. That much more surprising. We'll discuss that next.

One nilson report limitations may apply coming up in about ten minutes ben. Standing from the athletic will join us. He had an interesting survey of. Nfl coaches in gm's that you're gonna wanna hear. Ben will join us momentarily but tj talked about the number one picking the draft trevor lawrence struggles. Can't blame him hard to blame him with the talent surrounding him. The other obviously a huge name that was talked about ad. Nauseam in the lead up to the draft was just fields. And it's really interesting. Because he is in the middle of a a a a battle with andy dalton and we saw after the game he came to the defense of andy dolan following the game saying if you boo boo booing all of us. He's a human being. He deserves better And what's been interesting is that we. We see that. Andy dalton is going to sit out of the preseason finale in a couple of days and it looks as though You know things can always change but you know it looks like anti don't is going to start week one for the chicago bears and i don't really want to get into right decision wrong decision but something that struck me and i want to give credit to our producer rob because he brought this up to me and i thought it was a great point by him He he basically said you know in a situation like this. Where the head coaches on the hot seat. We know he's got to win and we know he's gonna pull every excuse out of the book. There's no better excuse than starting a rookie quarterback and saying well. I mean i started rookie quarterback cam you gotta take this grain of salt. It appears as though matinee give is putting the team ahead of even his own self interests. I respect the heck out of them. Because it's not what's best for matinee even if it's what's best for the bears and what's best for the long term development of justin fields. I actually think that's pretty cool or or knows. Justin fields is ready. Sure which he is. He's a rookie. But this is what happens. You start anti-dumping number one. You wanna really start justin. You know they play. I tell you ninety nine. Donald aram sunday night does not want no parts of that. Just feel he is. He's never seen before he goes from assad line but this is what happens going. They're going to lose that game. What i if any dalton doesn't win one of the first three to four games you can go to just fields. You hope he's ready by them in all you want to say to. Upper management is look at the progress that we made. When we play the ricky. You just want to show the progress because ultimately you don't want somebody else develop them you start just in fields as a rookie. When's the last rookie to have a winning season in the nfl. Believable was andrew luck. It doesn't happen often so he's looking at it from perspective matt. Nagy ricky's don't have win and seasons so even if i start justin fields history has shown me. I'm probably going to have a loser season less. See andy dog can give something so you don't think there's any credit because i mean i guess i guess your point is kind of the fare alternative to that. Is we say he's protecting just feels but he's really projecting himself because justin fields has no shot against that rams defense but i still look at it as that. You know whether it's right or wrong. It is for the best adjusted fields and that is another variable to this as well. Maybe in the end it really. He really is protecting himself. Because andy dalton maybe for lack of a better term gives him the best chance to not be embarrassed against that rams defense jalen ramsey. Aaron donald etcetera. But i also do feel like whether it's for appearance optics. Whatever in the long term. I do kinda feel like it's going to help justin fields and i think if you're just in fields your competitor. You wanna play but you know it would be easy for matinee to throw him out there and say look you know. Zach wilson is starting joe. Borough started day one last year. Trevor lawrence is clearly starting in in jacksonville. I mean there's there's a lot of guys that are starting to as a rookie whether they're ready or not early. First round picks justin fields could be no exception. But again whether i feel like whether it's for altruistic good reasons or just because antidote on again gives them the chance. The best chance thought to be embarrassed. I think justin fields in many ways should be appreciative. I don't know how to say it. I don't wanna say should be appreciative of not being able to play. But he really does feel like he is looking out for justin fields even if he is also at the same time looking out for his own best interest and he's also andy dalton was promised that he would be the starter. I don't believe the bear start. They're going to be able to draft chesterfield's either. But andy dalton you can tell the ways talking in the way he talked he was promised that starting spot scher. He would've never gone chicago without the promise. Panam ten million. Whoever his agent is you don't want to quote unquote we talked about. You'll wanna burn bridges in so you leading fall on his face. We kept our word. He's opening day starter. We didn't think we would have. Justin feels that we have to move on but if he plays well matt nagy possibly save his job and so it's a lot of politics that goes on behind the scene. Because when when you yeah. Trevor lawrence gonna start. Zach wilson is going to start. How long before. Trae glance gets in there. How long before. Mac jones gets in there. How long before justin fields gets in there but all those places. I don't believe they were promised. A starting spot. Jimmy g. is technically promise that because of his salary probably will try to squeeze in next week in taking less but outside of that jacksonville they. They don't have a veteran. Net is making money that they promise spot to neither does the jets. I believe cam newton. It's outplayed mack jones. Even mac geologist played well cam. Newton outplayed him. But it will be interesting to see what happens. I believe just feels will be in the starting lineup by week. Three or four if the bears are all for adult dogs playing well and he's not the reason why it might be later than that. Were bears two of the best defense is on the road in the first three weeks of the season at the rams and the bengals at home than at the browns. So you have after that you have lions raider so a nice little opportunity to get justin fields in there around week four so this is a couple of fox sports radio. tj airtours. In for rob and chris coming up one writer has some very interesting intel on aaron rodgers dak prescott and the rest of the. Nfl will get to him momentarily but first fox.

Irvine this is the odd couple of fox sports. Radio is ralph. Told you i'm aaron torres. Make sure to follow me on twitter at aaron underscore torres. Tj who spins out of twitter lists by design. We've talked about that many times. I think it's probably for the best because you know you've already threatened you. You've already said you'd beat up your agent if there was a problem. You said you'd fight people in the locker room so you don't even want to start messing with these idiots on twitter. So tj is not on twitter but you can hear tj up on game one two three eastern on saturdays. You can hear me. Eleven pm eastern on saturdays with arnie spaniard. Do want to get to the phone lines. Though bring in ben standing from the athletic make sure to follow him on twitter. At ben standing and ben first of all thank you for joining us. Tell us a little bit about this survey that you are part of because some really fascinating. Excuse me an agent survey just really fascinating stuff. I wanna ask specifically about aaron rodgers but just tell us about the origins of how it how it came about in how you and you and your colleagues put it all together. yeah When i joined the athletic in twenty nineteen you know. It's sort of like okay. Well joining this really impressive company and and and all these writers. What am i bringing to the table. And i've always you know. I started to build up some relationships with agents covering the walking and football team. And from that i was always like four. Dp agent. are you know they're sort of. Maybe they're not the most important person in all everything that goes on but they're but they're at the intersection of everything that kind of goes on representing the players negotiating directly with the teams The dealing with the nfl pa in the league and so on. It's when i started asking questions to them led to hey. Why don't we get their view on a lot of topics so this is the third one. This is the third wife done and Yeah part one today part two tomorrow and Yeah it's it's interesting to get the view of the people who like said maybe they're not headliners himself but they're they're right there at the intersection of where everything's happening being. What was the most surprising one that you look to set all really out of all the questions that were posed to these. Gm's which wants surprise you. The most i guess like on to comes out tomorrow. Just give us part. I guess yeah. Yeah no no problem. Yeah i mean. I guess like on the About four or five of the question has to do specifically with general managers in front office and and executives in the league and their view of them and obviously among the questions about you know. Who's good who do you think is the best and guys like chris our brandon beane stand out. And that's not necessarily surprising based on things that you've heard before their track record and so on it's sort of when you get to the other extreme i remember a couple of years ago How he rose from eagles. The eagles were flying. High was was getting y i started. This was getting more positive vibes. I mean in in his in his mentioned this time it was the other way the question one of the questions was who what gm Entrust the least. He was the clear leader. Surprise me i. Obviously things have kind of gone south philly of over the last couple of years last year particularly with with a downer in all kinds of ways But it really interesting to see by started. There he was a guy who was getting a lot of praise and now the view from the agency's. Yeah i don't know. I'm not sure about him from their perspective. I'm not saying about building a team but he can't fix the eagles but from their perspective of somebody to deal with They had a different views. That makes it a couple of years ago. This is the fox sports radio. I'm airtours alongside. Tj who's zodda. We're speaking with ben standard from the athletic. Make sure to follow him on twitter at ben standing ben interesting elements of this of this survey. A survey of anonymous agents was what they said about. Not just aaron rodgers. But the effect that aaron rodgers kind of public back and forth with the front office with the packers had on the entire organization team building this year. I know you don't want to give it all away because need to subscribe to the athletic. But what can you tell us about. What agents had to say about how the packers handled aaron rodgers. This offseason so. This is an interesting topic. Because when i started asking the questions he had yet to announce that he was gonna come back and then he did Midway through the through the process. But the the overriding theme was basically. There's a lot to blame to go around on both sides that the packers from relationship-building standpoint the perception of agents and people are getting. Th they talk to everybody in the league How packers just really just in some ways don't understand this person as an individual but also perhaps the modern athlete who is who is in the world of the internet rodgers has that. It's fine to agree that the so not every agent felt that quarterback quarterback or really any player should have a lot of say the way to the degree that perhaps aaron rodgers is has expressed if he wants a voice in what goes on but at the same point it felt like i thought of agents for of the belief and i personally kind of disagree with them. That you've gotta listen more to that guy and it felt like clearly. They didn't rogers opposite expressed as much when he made that really unbelievable press conference but that was really an overriding factor of the agents but interestingly enough some agents thought you know what this is open a win for the packers they were able to salvage the situation. He but he's back with the team He's still under contract for this year and next year and they're going to be one of the favorites To to win and ultimately at thirty one thirty eight years old. I think You know they may be able to get the last couple of good years out of him and it. Things went whoa weird odd and are still in strained but at the same point. He's back in and they're in position to win. So all these ricky quarterbacks if you had your pick which one would you say what have the most successful career not. Because he's the best probably isn't a good situation. Or which one would you prefer to have period of the rookie. quarterback's well. I i guess I the digested field. One is the one i guess. I'll be tracking the most in part because the team that i cover in washington you know there was. There was an opportunity to make the move that the bears made walkington doesn't have a long-term answer at at quarterback ryan fitzpatrick suits. You know thirty eight and we'll see what happens here He may be a good fit for the news here but they don't have any beyond on that and just and feel that the bears had the twentieth pick in the draft. The washington had the nineteen pick So the bears made a traitor. You know they gave up some Some draft capital but not a ton and there is hope that they've got the answer to the future. I feel that. I think he's got to be the most interesting of these quarterback because at one point he was viewed it arguably you know right. There was trevor lawrence as the topic and the draft and then he slides and we'll see who who got that call like the people who started the question him. Think you had it right or do people over thinking that Do they have it right. So i this is probably no more of my answer is with him a sort of split myself but i just. I'm so intrigued by what he can do. Of course you also is gonna be the factor. He's with the bears. i'm not saying it's completely negative. The bears were off team year ago. But at the same time you know. They've got their own questions and they baby be a dog innovation insurance depending on what happens this year. Then you just brought up that you cover the washington football team and you mentioned kind of ryan fitzpatrick. I'm just curious. What was the reaction this off season to to the moves that the the football team made and i only bring it up. Because there's so much optimism. So much excitement about ron rivera coming in obviously the push into the playoffs last year but then on the flip side You look at it and and you say they don't have the long-term answer quarterback and did they do enough to improve the roster heading into two thousand twenty one the twenty twenty one season and maybe they did do enough just at the quarterback position but what was the overall reaction in a draft where there were so many highly touted guys where you could move up to get a guy if you wanted them. That washington stood pat and is going to go into week. One with ryan fitzpatrick the quarterback. I mean i think that They're definitely a lot of fans who think that that's the move. Should've they should've made. And i think it's so interesting. If washington loses the last game of last season doesn't win the division and instead of picking at a nineteen they would have been picking that ten eleven range and at that point. Justin feels mack jones. We're still on the board. At least based on the board that was that we had this year and i i think that they might have said well. We're sitting here. These guys are here. Let's make this move. Assuming they like one of them and we think they might On the other hand. I don't think they've wanted to trade. They didn't want to give up the the picks that that would be needed to do that. And i don't think that was a wrong move either walk into simple the pretty interesting young core. There actually have a really stout defensive line with four Reason first round picks headlined by last year's offensive rookie of the year chase young. And so you know. Rivera's view is. We have a lotta pieces around the beyond the quarterback if we can build up this team either this year with its patrick. You know he's not going to be way more than the guy that they had last year. That position when they want a bad. Nfc east division But like what you know. Even if it's going forward they may have enough pieces in place that you can put in another quarterback and be ready. Be ready to go so fans were you know i think a bit. A lot alert forced the fan. Base wasn't thrilled that they didn't make an aggressive move. But i personally think it's i understood what they what they did. They try to get matthew stafford. That didn't work and then they kind of went. I sort of this plan b. Without giving up draft capital. And they'll see what happened here. Where last question. I guess we'll have for your. Maybe we'll have another one. What do you make of the kovic situation players vaccinated players unvaccinated. Will it be game for fitted or is it more you to corentin. You've been a close contact or you have. How do you see this plan out. The league has said that they're going to try as best they can to have the games played but if things get to an extreme level they're not going to readjust everything that we the way they did it a few times last year. I i you know. i'm. I'm entrench with this team so i don not hundred percent sure. Exactly what's happening around the league. I know like dallas have had some cases recently. Just today i q washington's special teams coordinator was not a practice because apparently he's entered the protocol but You know i think that. In general it feels like you know a very high percentage of the players have been vaccinated. fights far outpacing country so to that end. I'm not saying there won't be any issues. Just takes you know even if you're vaccinated you could still Test positive and therefore or be close contact and have to miss some time and if it happens right before a game and that could be a problem but you know i think ultimately the league is doing whatever it can. I think to ensure that they won't have Four fits but i would say you know if a team does have an outbreak You know i. i don't see a forfeit. I i feel forfeit happening. Not a rescheduling but obviously last year they could've avoided that for the most part wall. I'm sure they're hoping the same thing we'll have under this point.
