"All right Levian, bell got released from the jets, which is big for us, which is team don't pay running back also big for us, which is like the jets are the funniest organised eight picked the jets go to the playoffs last year. Let's just talk about that for years in the past last year. Split here's a here's a few. Since the jets hired Adam Gates things. Destroyed Sam darnold confidence and development. Check. Chased a homegrown talent out of town with incompetence in Jamal Adams. Made sure that no free agent will want to sign with them for years to come. Ranked last. In offensive production for two straight. Seasons. And let's just talk about how Adam Gates is. Still there he is still there and wait my favorite thing about it at all. You remember Anthony Barr was signing with someone off season. You remember the whole thing he signed with the jets he took a pay cut. To leave the jets and sign with the Vikings.

"Be here. I love the waf- idiots. Did you come up with such a ridiculous notion thing things change and things? Stay flu. Know, the other thing was interesting. I think Antonio Brown was out in Oakland yesterday. Okay. And I think he was saying that he was working out or going to go work out with Derek Carr. None of this stuff is legit and official until this afternoon at four o'clock. Right. So if he goes out there and works out with Derek Carr and gets hurt. None of this stuff is official. He he shouldn't be allowed to be there. I don't even know why he's even there. Yeah. It's a silly rule. Right. We all know he's going to be an Oakland raider. But yeah, but but nothing is official until this afternoon Belfi gets hurt. So maybe this'll jog thing. I hate I don't like this tampering period. I don't like it. I think the jets don't like it either. You know, if you're Anthony Barr. The jets did to Anthony Barr. What Anthony Barr just into the jets? How what about the screaming and yelling that would be coming from the players in the NFL players association. Even the name is odd, isn't it legal tampering? It's like jumbo shrimp. Doesn't make any sense sense. No, no, seriously, folks. Other NFL moves locally, of course, taking place yesterday. Reportedly to is boomer said be official starting at four o'clock today, and among those just as the giants were getting the Twitter world on fire over the Beckham news, of course, the jets and way beyond bell agreeing reportedly four years, fifty two and a half million sixty one million dollar and thirty five mil guaranteed, boomer. I know when you look at numbers like that. It's a five hour energy take that I want you to pump it up. I gotta I gotta step it up. Let's go you take that. On fire right after this. Daunted by all these big numbers is great. I think it's awesome. I think it's great that the players get paid like this. Don't you Joey? You get paid more to know. No. Yes. They were good, boomer. All right. So what else? What else you got? All right. So I'm Bill Gates that deal and it was during the Super Bowl this year. Boom that you were speaking with all time great, Terrell Davis about one belt. The amazing thing is that we have a guy like bell. Right. Yeah. So I'm sure you watch him, and you watch how he wrong does things that there's no way on God's green earth that I could do. High praise high praise and that's why I love you bell held out because he felt like he was worth more than Tonio Brown. He touched the ball over four hundred times as compared to Antonio Brown touching one hundred times the we have Terrell Davis on the Super Bowl. Yeah. We did. Yeah. Sure. About that wire pointing that. I didn't I did not think so either Bobby says that's from December of seventeen sort two years ago. Well there. Yeah. But we're all over it seems like everybody's got a little hand in the show this morning, which is good team effort. Yes. Team effort as mentioned after telling the jets he was signing with them. Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr remains in Minnesota or boomer is you would prefer remains in Minnesota. Yes. What is going on here contract worth sixty seven and a half million thirty three million guaranteed? You wonder if after a while these numbers, we think I get the feeling sometimes when all these numbers are flying around at the same time like on free agency week just kind of goes in one ear and out the other with fans, it's hard to digest as a couple of days after the fact you got to go back in and look at the names again in the teams again in the contracts again because we're just moving sorry here. Here's the deal. Here's the total money. Give it out thus far in contracts one point seven billion dollars. Okay. Almost one point eight billion dollars the total guaranteed money thus far in free agency this year seven hundred. Forty three million three hundred and one thousand dollars total guaranteed at signing. So when the player sits down he signs his contract. They have guaranteed three hundred and seventy six million dollars thus far. That is unbelievable. That is that is just crazy. You realize if you gave our overnight update guy fan Harris, Allen, just one. Ten-thousandth of that. He could eat like a king. In the newsroom. Right. We'll we'll catch up next hour on some of the other NFL moves, but basketball wise, NEC final FDU winning Saint Francis. Pennsylvania eighty five seventy six so they are out of the big dance for head coach Gregg horrendous and ferrall on the bench on CBS sports radio. He was discussing the fact that the home team made a late run. But his team was able to overcome. We talked about we got to climb to the top. And we've been climbing all year. But you're right. When Saint Francis made a run the building got involved, and then I think that's when Donald made a few great moves, and then Jalil at the end of the Jalil at the end of the clock was awesome. He made big three store in L edge. And also Gelo Jenkins couple of the stars for the night. So they're onto the big dance for the second time in four years, but Hofstra on the other hand their season ends despite the twenty seven wins. They fall short as the top seed in the colonial. They lose in Charleston to northeastern by the score of eighty to seventy four the west coast conference. Final was stunner Gonzaga beaten by Saint Mary's their big rival if you. You want to call it that in that week sixty forty seven twenty one game win streak ends for the zags. Meanwhile, the summit league final to North Dakota state, the horizon to northern Kentucky and survey to around the big dancing. John's Rutgers getting started in their conference tournaments today and tonight also Syracuse in the ACC also we have the Knicks losing their seventh in a fan about three seconds on that not doing a good job, man. They're they're they've lost. The most games in the league right now in terms of the streak seven and Phoenix won last night or the other day. So the Knicks now solidly in first place in last place writing a firm grip on the last one zero three nine eight. They lose at Indiana. Meanwhile, flames beat the devils nine four they have lost seven zero Johnny goodra a six point nine three goals, three assists and quickly. Spring baseball Yankees beat the Orioles eight seven Aaron judge Homer. And the Mets beat the Marlins. Eight one Jacob degrom a decent five inning. Adding and Tim T-Bone Oeser. Surprise sent to triple A. So let the clock begin. Or should I say boomer let the carpet again, that's right on when he's gonna be up your for too long. You are very very..

"Bellamy and the and the jets were looking at parade parades from Denver possibly they were they were on levian bell. And everything was great in the jet world. Yeah. And then of course, late in the afternoon, you find out that Anthony Barr basically backs out of the jet deal. And decides to remain in Minnesota I and it's amazing watching like all the reaction to what happened Antonio Brown. What happened Odell Beckham junior last night, and what happened with Anthony Barr? Could you imagine if they team did to Anthony Barr with Anthony Barr did to the jets, man? Could you imagine if the jets while we kind of got an agreement, but we're going to back out on your goodbye? We don't want you could you imagine. If that would happen the other way around and then teams that were interested in that players signed somebody. Else and couldn't get back in on that play. Right. And it's kind of interesting then one Odell Beckham junior's traded. I even saw like, I think was Jamal Adams said, oh, you know. No loyalty, why should there be why should there be any loyalty of the players going to act the way, the players are acting in some of these cases, and I think Antonio Brown being the case where it shows, you gotta be really careful who you're who you're signing here here. So let's start with Odell Beckham junior. Here's the thing you, and I have been talking about this for months now, I believe that the giants actually sold high in this case, they got more than the Steelers got friend Tonio Brown, and they got more than the raiders got for for Amari Cooper and a higher draft pick, by the way. So Dave Gettleman sold high here knowing a couple of things one I do not believe that Odell Beckham junior wants to play out the year with manning. I don't believe he wants to go down that road number two Odell Beckham junior last two years has been off injured, and I do believe the last four games of last year in which he didn't play because he had a contusion. Leg. I believe that set off some some alarms within the giants building over there. And they weren't happy with them. Number three. He goes on with little Wayne and ESPN and basically wonders aloud as to whether or not he likes playing here in New York and questions his quarterback openly number four. He gets on all fours in Philadelphia and acts like a dog in the end zone. Number five. He makes a marriage proposal to the kicking number sixty gets into huge fight with Josh Norman acting like an idiot on the field. Let's not forget about Paris pizza. So you have Paris and the pizza you also have the boat trip down to Miami Green Bay playoff game. I mean, I mean enough is a freaking Nuff. I don't care how good you are. It's tolerance and its production his production the last two years due in large part to injuries and because he decided to take himself out. He is the all hyped team. This is it all hype guy that is basically. A fruit cake when it comes to being a part of a team. And you know, maybe some of his teammates are going to miss them. Always so great. I think he's more hype than anything. Yeah. I wanted some believable. So I I'm all in with David gentleman on this one. I have been talking about this for months. Senate yesterday. I said trade Odell Beckham junior cut Eli manning draft a quarterback go in for a full rebuild. The problem is though, and I am on board with this deal. And I don't think the returns band is everybody else is talking about. I think that's pretty decent return for L Beckham junior. The problem is a year late. This is the issue, and this is where Dave gentleman going to get criticized and had been getting criticizes. They didn't have as an organization Gettleman and others didn't have the foresight to say we're going to stink in two thousand eighteen we need to do this stuff. Now. Now, they discussed about trading Odell Beckham junior they did not instead they signed to a contract extension. So now they have to eat sixteen million dollars in dead cap money. They still don't have the quarterback of the future. They still have ally manning on their roster, and they're a mess. Just think about the great position. They would be if they realize this last year, and by the way, you know, the league year starts this afternoon. Which is actually getting started and the two thousand and nine thousand nine league years. So this is really the beginning. And this is the first I would say the first move because they've already, you know, let Landon Collins go and he signs Washington. They traded Olivier Vernon to the Cleveland Browns four Eric Zeitler. And I do believe that that's probably where this whole thing starting maybe with Odell Beckham junior. It might even started before that. But at the end of the day when you really think about all the nonsense that ode L Beckham junior created around the giants the money that they gave him. And then the fact that he is injured a lot. It doesn't play in every game. I'm looking at this going like, Dave get them into the right thing. Right. He made a little bit too late. I mean, they they should have. They shouldn't have signed into the deal. Because now you gotta deal with the dead cap. Stop all of that. But yes, I this is why we kept bringing it up because after the contract, and let's not forget everybody that was talking about whether to give him the money or not give him the money was talking about his prior behavior. Then all of a sudden own L Beckham junior was perfect. He was showing up to practice. He wasn't saying anything. He looked great after the injury in two thousand seventeen look he's a changed, man. He matured like most of us do as we get older. He's maturing. It's time for him to get the money. And then all of a sudden it was another one eighty from the new mature back junior. And he's sitting next to little Wayne saying, he's not sure of New York is the place to be when the giants just made him the highest paid. Things change internally the level of pain in the ass is like at an all time high. It's like ten right? And it's just too much work. It's so much work for Pat Shurmur. Do you think Pat Shurmur wants to get up there and talk post practice or post game about one individuals comment somewhere else other than on the field? And I'm so sick and tired of hearing about oh, how hard a guy works. I'm sorry. I'm paying eighteen million dollars or card. I should. That's that's the least I should get Adamu's. Your idea the day. You know, he created a firestorm. He is all hype. You know, there is a good football player in there somewhere. There's a competitive football player in there somewhere. I have lauded him at times one. He is out on the field where you could see that. He is a difference maker. But at the end of the day, how many games has he missed how many problems has he created and the internal aspect of from the head coach of standpoint from the ownership standpoint from the general manager standpoint how? How much crap are you going to put up with? I'm sorry. I can say the same thing about the Steelers and then Tonio Brown and Le vian bell one of the big questions around. Dave Gettleman right now. And I hear it everywhere is what is his plan. What is the plan right now? And to me, it's an easy answer. The plan has changed. And because the plan is changed. And because they thought they were going to be better last year. They're in a little bit of a mess but last year in two thousand seventeen they believed that they could rebuild quickly from a horrendous year the year before they had to fire. The coach guys are getting hurt and guys are leaving and everything else and quitting mid season. In the defensive backfield disaster, they thought that they could quickly go from worst to first in the NFL because it's been done before left in the tank. We're going to beef up the offensive line. And we're going to be good. They were wrong they were dead wrong. And they realized it that's why there was a purge middle of the season where they traded away guys. That's why you're seeing what you're seeing this off season. So the plan is now full rebuild. And if you want to cut Eli manning, I think that would be the smart thing to do. However now that we know they're in full rebuild. What they probably will do is because they are beholden demanding manning forever. It seems like is there going to hopefully draft a quarterback have an ally. Farewell tour have that year of mentor ship, the Kansas City model even O'Kane city was really damn good. When they add Alex Smith is a quarterback they'll have that. And they'll move on to the giants go draft a quarterback. They better now because this is full frigging rebuild right in New York is the plan. The New York Giants also now have twelve draft picks. Okay. So they have four in the top one hundred five in the top one hundred and ten and on top of that. They'll get a compensatory pick for the loss of Landon Collins in the off season next year. Anything for Atlanta Collins, while they they probably could have gotten a fourth rounder for him last year. But now they get a compensatory third rounder that will be used in two thousand and twenty. So at the end of the day. It's it's I know it's Odell Beckham junior. I know it's a big name. I know it's like a marquee name. Everybody knows everybody loves him. Everybody remembers that one handed catch a losing game against the Dallas Cowboys. Hey, you know, what? Good by don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out because you know, you have created more hysteria and issues for this franchise. And maybe since Lawrence Taylor Lawrence Taylor did live in the world of social media and didn't live in the world of access to the media. The way that this kid has when he was on winning teams too. That's the other thing that helps every. It was on your winning teams. Right. Says two years in a row now where they have had three losing to losing records back to back and they haven't gotten any better. And now, they're worse. I think on paper anyway, roster wise until we see what they do in the draft and see what are the free agents that they possibly may sign. They do pick up some salary cap relief here. They're up to I think about twenty seven or twenty eight million cap room moving forward. And remember they got the roster bonus. They give you lie. Manning this coming Sunday for five million dollars. Yeah. And I've heard to that. And I know that we have said this that it's crazy for them to continue to be loyalty Eli manning. But I have heard this idea that Dave Gettleman chose ally manning to build around as opposed to own L Beckham junior and I disagree with that thought process. I don't believe that he chose that. I think that they know now that they're in a full rebuild and whether or not you I manning is the starting quarterback next year or it's a rookie quarterback. They know. They're in a full rebuild. And if they want to give you a farewell tour next year, or they don't I'm not even sure it's going to matter. I think that they finally turned the corner with this trade and realize we're not going to be any good next year. We're just not. So I think that we now have a general manager and a team that understands that they can't win with manning..

"I four fan at a very good Tuesday morning show, Robert six seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six. At one o'clock CNBC. Of course, comes your way. Early on the other side of the glass at the answer. Reggie United's question thrilled with what the jets yesterday has. I'm looking at them right now. C J Moseley Anthony Barr, especially bro. Loved the signing. Those two defensive plays. I gotta tell you love it. When you got a lot of money to spend baby you can have a very sexy off season. So far, we are less than twenty four hours in ira- how it's going to pan out. I don't know what we're going to be saying three years from now. But right now, it's very sexy. Very sexy. And what I love about it the ages Anthony Barr. Yes. CJ Moseley's typically, then up thirty three no offense to Terrell. Suggs who signed with our he's you know, he's this is his science. I'm going for the money now. Right. The jets and not signing guys on their thirty s or late thirties Anthony Barr, especially with how the jets are gonna use them because it's going to be a lot different than what we saw Minnesota. And by the way, what we saw in Minnesota wasn't bad Pro Bowl for he's a good way. But if you look at what bar didn't college at UC. CLA? He can get to the quarterback. He be a pass rusher. Thirteen sacks one year in college yet ten and other. Yeah. So. Looking at highlights that have now. So you can goes after tannahill you can look at them and see the numbers he put up in Minnesota. I think the new defensive coordinator Greg Williams gonna use them very very differently. And that's why the Anthony Barr signing is exciting and CJ most. I love you know, how could you not be? I'm thrilled. Go out in the draft one big pass rushers with the third picking a drafty got Greg Williams now as defensive coordinator, you got Jamal Adams there. I didn't go Leonard Williams would be a different play with this group around him. I'm very excited. I'm excited about the defense. Obviously you want to put as many pieces around Sam darnold, but having a big time defense helps too, you know? I'm not asking Sam darnold to put up thirty five to win a game helps as well. Exactly. This linebacking corps to go along with two guys already on this roster. Avery Williamson who had a tremendous year last year we good and Jordan Jenkins who led the team in sacks last year. The quarterback seven times they are building one hell of a linebacking core. Now, there's still a lot of work to do. There's still more that can be done especially with the cap room. They have but they one defensively they add Anthony Barr. Dad, CJ Moseley. That's not a bad start by Mike mcknight's terrific. I mean, I'm very happy with it. The other guys crowd is an ice signing. You're gonna have him as a slot receiver. We'll see what you got hit me was a lot of last year. Guy Bellamy, I guess, basically just a special teams type ace special teams player, and I guess gaze had success with in with the bears gays was there. You can always have the actions now. But Jamison Crowder is a guy who I'll admit off the top. I'm biased against a little bit. Because last year I thought he was gonna have a breakout year in Washington and I brought him into my fantasy. And it was hurt. I mean you nail right, right? So I think when you sign a guy like Jamison Crowder who also he's still young. He's twenty six years old. Which of course, I want to build an for a couple of years. I want to win for a very long time. But I think you sign a guy like Crowder and say we put them in a different offense with a young quarterback like Sam darnold. Hopefully, he stays healthy. That's the key. That was the only injuries have his career. It's not like an injury prone guy. Just that last dream is the chunk of time you're signing him for you think he can be for what you think he could develop into I would still add one more receiver. I thought Devin funchess would have been a great addition decides that he has that's where he did side with signed with Indianapolis. I think I'm trying to keep track. There's so much every time you turn around somebody signing like just this morning. Sheldon Richardson signed Brown when Brown the Broncos have been active. They signed Kareem Jackson. They want James the former right tackle who had been collected a little bit to the jets the raiders Jackson some of the eagles. No, you believe jazz. Right me Jackson been cut. My Jackson Broncos initially, right. Maliki Jackson Jackson the corner. They right. Right. And then the other big thing, which does affect the other New York team is what Landon Collins ended up getting going. Yeah. I'm not surprised you stayed in the division. But eighty four million for Landon Collins, what do you get forty five guaranteed money? Yeah. For safety. Yes. Yeah. Jamal Adams, not the only safety getting paid. Tyron Matthew got a lot of money to Matthew three years. Forty two million Marcus Joyner got paid big money by the Oakland Raiders. He got a four year deal. We'll see where Earl Thomas. He ends up. Getting I look at the Landon Collins signing would I have signed to that contract. No. So the question is, hey, the giants were smart. They didn't give Landon Collins a six year eighty four million dollar deal with all that guaranteed money. That's fine. But they could have had him back for eleven millwright exactly right lane. And Collins may not have been happy about it. That's football. And I don't think he would have completely disrupted locker room. I think he would have showed up. I don't think it would have been a. Yeah. I don't think he would have been on a guy. Yeah. I don't think would have been a Levy on bell situation. So I mean when you look at the contract, he got that's how the Redskins were able to secure him. One thing that happened with the jets in signing CJ Moseley for five years. Eighty-five million fifty-one guaranteed is that there were reports last night early this morning 'cause he ended up signing. I heard it like six AM. Yeah. Something like that that he didn't wanna leave Baltimore. That he was willing to take less money to stay in Baltimore with the jets had to do. And this is what you gotta do. Sometimes they had overpaid for him. They had to blow away to convince him to leave Baltimore. And that's why they had to give him eighty five million dollars and fifty one guaranteed if CJ Moseley plays like an all pro who cares? How much they paid? You don't care. And I think it's similar to Landon Collins, obviously, you look at Landon Collins. He's a box safety should pay him that much the Redskins Joe or getting him unless they blow them away. That's right now, you're right on a percent and Redskins. Snyder has a history of crazy contracts the free agents. I mean, we know that a long history. And I think that's part of why to get a talent. Nafta overpay that would free agencies about and here's what it does suck about free agency. The reason the jets have to pay all these guys a ton of money is because they haven't trusted. Well. Well, that's true. They haven't they have not when you look at the really good franchises. There's a reason why the New England Patriots don't spend crazily. There's a reason why the Pittsburgh Steelers don't spend crazy. There's a reason why the Green Bay Packers don't spend crazy because they don't have to. When you're a bad organisation. Unfortunately, you have to now hopefully this hits that's the key Moseley heads and stays healthy and plays like an all pro same with Anthony Barr. But when you're in a position to have to spend a hundred million dollars in cap room. There's a reason why it's not a good reason. Why excuse you're not good? Because you don't know what the hell you doing. Hopefully, Mike maccagnan hits these out of the ballpark. He's going to be looking for another job. We hope. So I mean look on paper today that the two defensive signings to me, you're terrific on paper. And if you're gonna tell me you're gonna add which I would think they're going to add one of these big pass rushes in draft. I think they're gonna argue. The bulls are going to be sitting there for him because Murray to me is going to go number one unless something happens. You know, you really might defense could be really good really good. I think quitting Williams is also legitimate possible. Three is well, it's tough to tell because with free agency. Let's see how they fill the rest of these holes right now, I think the focus is on offense. Now, it is while Jamison Crowder is a nice signing. And Josh Bellamy, my reaction is whatever the obvious. You've already improved the offensive line by bringing. The assembly now, they're going after powered to center from Denver who to me would just put this off season over the top and taking bell. It's fine. If they don't get bell. I'm not delirious about it either way. You know, if they get them, great, if not okay, that's how I feel. I really do. I'm actually more excited. They got these two defensive plays. And look Quinta Williams is fine. If Boza and Alan went one to take Williams, if they're not I gotta take one of those pairs roaches. I got new maybe McCain does trae back. Maybe that's always a possibility. I don't know if I want to do that. Now, I know you want a second round pick. But I don't know if I want to do it's not even about a second round pick to me. I would be intrigued by trading back. If there's a team so desperate for a quarterback. They're willing to give me that insane package. That includes a first for next year. You know, something like that out of the deal like that is not out there. Then I would go and say just get me the best available player, but we still have so much time before then obviously the giants. The jets can still. Fill out this roster, more and more. I don't know what lady umbrellas thinking, I think when you walk it for Levy on bell. I mean, who actually I mean, I don't know. I mean, Chicago Bears are a big threat. They're saying is that the bears are. When you see that they restructured Khalil Mack. Yeah. Clear up cap room, and Jordan Howard may not be long for across the screen. They did site. Buster screen, the great immortal jet. Buster screen is now a former jet, and they also went out and signed Mike Davis the running back from Seattle for depth. But Jordan Howard is in the last year of his rookie deal. There's a chance they may trade Jordan Howard. And they're looking for the big fish in the big fish is Lavi bell. And I don't know what lay beyond stinking and free agency. If it's strictly who's paying me the most money, then who pays them the most money if he's looking to win right away. Obviously the bears. Have a compelling story team last year they were in the postseason last year. I think that can be compelling to him. I don't know what's going on bells. My the only thing I know he's done social media saying he's got a very tough decision to make. Yes, who am? I. So is that. So is it really right now to bears in jets is that I'm sure there are others. John. I don't know those those are the two teams that have been mentioned. But I think the Baltimore Ravens would like to go out and get on bell. Stick it to the Steelers. Sure, why not. I mean, the raiders who have spent a lot they are clearly going for Trent Brown and lamarcus Joyner Antonio Brown. They could be a factor for him to..

"Depleted the mouth of natural gas in New England. So few it gotten advance warning of that you could have you know, they could have planned better rather than getting into the squeeze also municipal planners had how much snow are we gonna get? I mean, I am actually found a pretty good relationship between Siberian snow corrupt Tober and snowfall in northeastern cities. And the actually the forecast for Boston worked out really well last year and actually presented that to the governor of Massachusetts, you know, back in the late fall. And and I think it was turned out to be very helpful for them to plan, especially you know, in advance of. That. Yeah. Those four consecutive nor that we had you know, the start off March. I know you can also buy contracts for your, for example, your heating Bill. You can get a monthly plan in advance. You know, and I'm wondering if you know, somebody expects a cold winter. I'm sure they were taken that into account too. But it just may help you overall plan for St. economic strategies like that. But yeah, it's fascinating too. Because I remember I was in the in the weather risk management business back in the nineteen nineties through much of the bid two thousands. And you're right. I mean, because we started really paying very close attention to the impacts El Nino, for example, and other factors in the seasonal forecasting. And that hadn't yet been explored. Because I remember the season forecast really became I would say operational mid-nineties. Remember, Anthony Barr listening to conference that he gave from about that and talking about how? Much. There could be gleaned from this kind of information coming forward about three month forecasts for many months ahead. And now we're kind of in that space. I think where the work that you're doing. Is very helpful and help giving us an idea of what might come down the line over and above your forecast that you can get in your app. Bring about this..

"How about that? I'll Anthony, Anthony Barr. I thought had his best game last week. Harrison Smith made some big plays. This is still a good defense even without Everson. Griffen Vikings are catching the jets. By the way. I don't think the jets are gonna win. I want the Jetson but that. But you have to if I were in the same situation, I would not walk around saying, I think they're going to win, but you have to be excited. I thought that all of a sudden I'm one of those rare jets Optimus jets fan Optimus, but they are the Vikings are catching the jets at a very good time, Justice. Super banged up, especially at wide receiver where I don't even know who's playing this week, almost everyone is questionable or out and they're secondary. They're missing again, Tremaine Johnson. They're missing BUSTER screen. Marcus Marcus may is out. He broke his thumb. So Kirk cousins had a nice year. I think he's gonna throw for a lot of yards just like Angela cted last week. It's gonna be a tough game for the jets. Let's throw some credit to Claiborne who's having a great year. So good last year to a little play him. Oh. Let's move on. Carolina Panthers stumbled last week against the Redskins, and now they go to Philly to face the eagles whipped up on the giants with ease Mark, Cecil the eagles get their Mojo back after that statement win over the giants. I think so that game feels like it was five years ago, but that was one that was the performance we were waiting for from the offense. The one thing about the Panthers watching that game against the Redskins where Washington control them in the first half by generating turnovers and shutting down the run. And if you're Carolina and you can't run the ball, I don't see a lot of hope for this offense and the eagles have held teams under eighty yards, rushing and five of six games. So from that standpoint, your challenge, if you're Carolina is to do what no team hasn't really done against the eagles so far, I think you nailed it when the Panthers don't run the ball. They're easy to beat and last week even if they had run the ball. Like you said, those turnovers DJ more. You gotta keep playing them, but there's two lost fumbles huge and that killed him. Busted coverage on Vernice Vernon, Davis. Twice the defense. Like that's what the problem was. If for the for the concern that I raised on this show about their defensive tackle position, you said it with their run defense, and they have more quarterback hits on the defensive line than any team in the league. The Panthers have actually done a pretty good job protecting Cam Newton. The Tyler offense of line coach is a wizard..

"And if you get complex which releases from the the strong side, you're gonna get a matchup problem. You saw that against buffalo saw gets Los angels anti sought against Green Bay. That's a common thread there. But again, we're defining defense. You've step forward. Got Eric kendricks, Anthony Barr Koenders can do a lot of stuff. Anthony Barr, their blitzing off the side, especially in the loss of Griffin, though, put him down on the line of scrimmage in run. I'm like, DeAnne, which at UCLA is something that we talked about bar could do he kinda provide you outside linebacker inside linebacker versatility in that he was a good rush guy, but he. He specifically has been a guy who I think has been struggling against play action. He's he's very aggressive into line. He flows very, very hard, and the jet motion from Los Angeles was just killing him. Right is he was jumping at shadows all day, long there. And then you know kendricks says he's been playing well. And finally that brings you into the front four, which is a case where they are asking their front four, even in the absence of Griffin to get pressure with four more often than not and simply shell Richardson Donell. Hunter on paper. Yeah, that's troublesome. It simply hasn't been a Richardson's not the player that he was hunters guys good for a quick win. If you beat with explosives and band, then you're in trouble right away. But the consistency is data and it's not like the eagles style, a pressure where if a quarterbacks in the pocket for two seconds somebody's coming, somebody has beaten somebody by this point you on mean like if you can bury hunter, he doesn't have much in the ways of counters or even say like power which is crazy strong, but he's not. A guy who like you've got me locked up while I can walk you back into the quarterback. You know, he doesn't really do that as much much anticipated. He pulled off sometimes, but not as much as I would have thought. And so you're at a point where you are putting a great amount of stress on your back. Four. And then you're back when you have rookie my Houston drawn very complex coverages occasionally, asking road slash Wayne's to just be one on one with extra Cevers. Number one receivers, which is always looking difficult, ask the wide receiver always have advantage there. Also asking Harrison Smith in Edgerton day and sometimes said Anthony Barr to just run down, feel good, tight ends and wide receivers. And that's very difficult. So this defense, I think you see similar themes in the buffalo in the Los Angeles Games in terms of how they were beaten up, big buzz around Los Angeles offense is this idea reduce splits talked about reduce. Let's on the podcast before it's where you take your outer most wide receivers, and you line them up closer to the line of scrimmage, inside of the numbers closer to the hashes. This. Causes problems because it allows even your outermost receivers have both inside and outside releases possible were typically when they're outside to the boundary..
"anthony barr" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"I'm gonna greatest growth that he made the entire night with the Todd Gurley throw up to see back was about a Cup throughout the best on Anthony Barr. I was the best throw of the night and then robber woods throat, Robert. Beauty more so long. I got window was so small Travis when I saw that I shouldn't. If only Jeff Fisher knew what to do with that when he had I got a question for all three of you or we'll start with you Travis a system of all. You need to ding income into the door because you know. Disease you weren't in this system quarterback or. No, absolutely. Not an MP you. I'm going around on l z Granderson system quarterback or no. Keyshawn johnson. How old is eight? The number one he's gonna system quarterback or no, yes or no? Always be a system quarterback. Oh. Came around, he's in a system with a coach that turned him around. Okay. You said something incredibly important has talent though he has armed Allen, would we saw what we saw last night? We'll see what we've seen from Todd Gurley this season and most of last season can we come to the inclusion that Jeff Fisher's the worst offensive coach in the history of football who is not off as a coach? That's number one. I mean, no. But I mean, this is a guy jerk off. He didn't know anything about office. That's number two gym seat as even know how to hire often watched Fisher. Yeah, exactly. He doesn't even know how to design an offense for guy to be defense. It's ridiculous. So when you look at last night and you watch this guy just shot McVeigh. I mean, he was dialing it up. I can't wait to get him on with us at eight thirty because he's on. I got specific plays in my mind that I saw and I wanna know how long it took you to draw certain things up, and I want to ask him, what did he see on those. Acidic plays because it was getting a guy like Anthony Barr. First of all, coach ZIM, you know better. He's a damn linebacker. He should be coverage for times. We thought he touchdowns. Yes. I mean, you gotta matched up on Cooper Cup because Kuba Cup runs a shallow crossing. Did have an injury, did they know? Oh, so he went into his and this is what he's gonna do. Yeah. Yeah. Because what happens is coaches get caught up in matchups in they say, you know what? If we do this, this guy can't beat us. Cooper Cup couldn't beat them in his mind. Kubrick Cup. We'll give Cooper covers yards will let him catch his little Kennedy yards. Yeah, because because everyday born touchdowns Anthony bars a four, five linebacker four point five in speed. He's faceting Cooper Cup on paper. Yeah, not not running route. See. So what coaches do is they. Look at that and go, oh, we'll do this to him. We'll pass him off to him. He's as fast if not faster than robber woods. We'll pass him off to him. Get your hands on rerouting in every bar, did not touch any os. Do they all have free releases? Which which to me says a lot about Sean Sean Payton, Sean McVeigh in terms of how he dials things up. If you go back to the New England giant wasn't the only touchdown he beating Anthony Barr though. I mean he threw touchdown passes. They know it all again. Three of them was though key. The throws that he made were not why the throw into your point? Yes, he was wide open. But you said to yourself, I remember he didn't have to slow down. He just had to known underneath it and catch this no question. But in order for in order for him to even get open on Anthony Barr Sean McVay had the dial up because he ran. I'm gonna ask about it later. He ran a shallow cross in up. Typically when you're on a shell across underneath. Five yards from the line of scrimmage, the linebacker stones you right, you now it becomes zone or man. If his men and men you continue to go across. I've never in my life. Seen somebody go up the real, never seen it. I have is it because at least as a player, you haven't played very quarterbacks who actually get? No, it's not that it's the defense of what Sean seen the shallow cross cane..

"Start with some injury, news, terrible news, and San Francisco. John Lynch telling Peter King. All indications suggest Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a tornado on the sideline on scramble play, of course, waiting an MRI, but even cows Shanahan's that after the game looks like Jimmy g. season is over if you've just gotten out of bounds. Yeah, Justin, Houston said that it was garoppolos own fault for what happened? Well, I mean if he had gone run, just runs straight out of bounds and steadied try to pick up those yards planted his left foot, and then his right knee gave his right knee gave out, right. It's his writing. Is that what. It is like to me such a bummer. I mean. Just get down, man, get out of bounds, Josh Allen leapfrogging, Anthony Barr looks by. Don't do. It means you all. He's young quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers Iraj scrambling late in the game near the in the red zone dives headfirst well, he can. It's his left knee by the way Garoppolo it was that left knee that he planted to keep before instead of going out of bounds. And again, it. Aaron Rogers, though I trust he's like year. He knows how to protect himself, but in Rogers is probably playing on half on something tear sprain something like, why are you scrambling and risking taking a big hit? I'm not would we be the first to suggest the forty Niners call Colin Kaepernick even though I'm not nice chat, Tim Calica me did suggest here Hilo distorting the and. I kind of said it is not gonna happen. Why not? Why not? I mean, someone else suggested that they should trade for tyrod Taylor. Gil Brandt tweeted, okay. There you go. That's not a bad idea at all trade for tyrod Taylor because they've still have drew Stanton there to backup Baker Mayfield. Right?

"That's literally all you can do. You can't do that. But it's not just a game. I mean, this is Aaron Rodgers. This is the Packers. This is the Vikings. This is the NFC north. Hold on. Let me let me continue setting this up. This is this the guy that Anthony Barr knocked out. I'm telling you, you know what I mean? Yes, yes. Yeah. I mean, I'm sure that that storyline will will get a lot of heights. You know, especially with the new rule changes and everything. You know it is the division games, no matter who it is, you know, they, they are big, especially when it comes down to the end of the season, and people are positioned for playoffs. So you know, we, we understand that we also understand, you know, the pride that the Vikings fans have, you know, with this kind of border battle. So we we understand that and and and you know, ramp it up, but it's not, you know, it's not make or break right now, but we will definitely try to bring a game. You mentioned that rule that you mentioned about not allowing to put your body weight on a quarterback when you sack him. Do you ever talk about that with Anthony Barr in the locker room. No, we don't. I mean, we we, honestly, we do talk about trying like how to play within the rules a lot just because it's hard to always sack of quarterback and then slide to the side of them. It's just it's hard to do in real time. So we talk about those things, but you know, I think he took a lot of heat on on social media and stuff last year from from people. So it's more of a joke than anything for us. So what are those conversations like when you're a defender talking with your coaches or amongst your your colleagues about the rules about lowering your head about moving your body to the side, about doing all this and trying to play his instinctively as you possibly can cause that's in many ways. What got you to this position to play in the National Football League Harrison Smith? Yeah, I think you know, normally these conversations start with divas players complaining saying how hard it is stuff, but that that doesn't help us to complain about it like they made the rule. So now we have to figure out. How to play within it. So we, we talk about just, you know, lowering kinda lowering your target instead of launching and aiming. You know, just kinda recklessly consciously thinking about when you're making a break but already lower in that target, keeping your head up wrapping up. As long as you're trying to do those things, you know, maybe an accident hair here there happens, that's that's the nature of the game. But if you're trying to do them, that's that's, you know, if you have that intent beforehand, it normally translate translates to, you know, cleaner tackles was in the rules of the game today.

"As soon as he gets rid of the ball, he's in a defenseless position. If you watched that hit with Anthony Barr air Rogers, it's a bang bang play. I don't think there was any opportunity for Anthony Barr to stop himself. At least after Rodgers threw the ball. He was already about to hit them as soon as he got rid of it. I mean, how do you stop that? Honestly. It, it's, it's ridiculous. Now we're going to begin a whole bunch of fifteen yard penalties because the NFL is trying to ruin its own game. I'm perfectly fine with making the game safe. No problem with that. We've passed enough rules to do that. Now. It's just a point. You gotta go out and play football. The NFL's trying way too hard to wrap the quarterback position in bubble wrap. Nothing back in happen to the quarterback. I mean, it's ridiculous. It's honestly very frustrated. Because. I mean, you look at it. You can't play defense anymore beating Ronnie Lott would do well in today's game. It'd be exciting for about the ten minutes. We get to watch him play. Then after that he gets checked at every game. I mean, imagine Ed Reed. Ed Reed towel, someone, normal that follows a penalty under today's rules. I mean, it's absolutely ridiculous. Like I said, I'm all for player safety, but there's a point where they've done too much. And yeah, we're at that point. Now there's no more need to add anymore rules. You don't even need the ones that they added the season. I get the now they're getting sued and all that. But I mean the NFL's gotta go out and say, we've tried to make game as safe as we can. We do anything more. It's going to water down and we want players know the game. They're playing. Just high them all sign waivers coming into the league, which I'm sure they do some form of that already. Let these players know. You're gonna get hurt. You're probably gonna get a concussion. You might tear us. Yeah, that's on you though. You know what you're getting into playing this game. And if they don't like it, then don't play football. Because there's a point where I mean, the defense receiver will all that fine. Whatever. But as far as Anthony bars in the middle of getting ready to hit the quarterback in, if Aaron Rodgers gets rid of it right before Anthony, Barr gets there, it's a penalty of Anthony warheads him when he reality, he has no opportunity to stop momentum. I mean, that's not gonna work here. And I don't understand why the NFL always gets in its way. I mean, it's it's, it's hilarious ridiculous. At the same time. You got mad and coming out on the soundtrack MS asong that mentions Colin Kaepernick. Whatever. It's not a problem. You know what the NFL does. They calling Kabir nickname on that song. Scrubbed, scrubbed off as if it's a curse word. It's gonna go silent when calling Kabir name supposed to go on that song. He's in that ridiculous. Why not just change the entire song. Ow. I mean, it's, it's, it's honestly kind of impressive how often the NFL gets in its own way for as much money as they make. There's not too many geniuses running the show out there. I mean, it's ridiculous. He goes from the rules. So the scrubbing calling Kabir nickname out of the Madden soundtrack song or whatever to. I mean, everything. They have their players act like robots, like I said, league over at the NBA they're currently in their peak as far as popularity. NBA's almost like a universally love type leak. Everyone loves the NBA. And I mean they're making all the right moves here. Players are able to voice their opinions. Players are able to sign one, two, three year deals for as much money as they can players. Now. I mean, it's less and less frowned upon them going wherever they want. And of course they're going to have those fans in the back is yelling at the wall the entire time. But in reality doesn't matter why because those fans are still gonna show up. But like I said, I mean the NFL it's it's almost I hate the NFL's far as as much as I do the NCWA all of watching the game. I love watching the players, but as far as the owners, Roger Goodell go as seems like they don't have a clue as far as what they're doing..
"anthony barr" Discussed on The Simms And Lefkoe Podcast
"'cause SIMS comes over. The top goes, this. Never fuck. It happens to him. This is bullshit. Don't think he's important ISA fuck, I appreciate you. Very, tonight's guy. I am. Thank you. Great. Working with you. All right. So we got to our favorite guys Stefan digs cut fucking pay. Let's talk about Stefan digs really quick getting seventy million seventy one million guaranteed coming out to around fourteen a year. And the first thing that I thought was Steph Hon digs was he just take Anthony bars money, and I would have given that money to Anthony Barr. I love Stefan. We've had him on the show now once or twice. Really good guy. I think he's it's special what he did against New Orleans Saints. The fact that they drafted him in the fifth round. He loves that team. He's a very talented receiver, but I think Anthony Barr is better at his position than digs his position and they've Minnesota's locked up all of their future guys. And I don't know if bars ended anymore. I don't know either be it'll be very interesting to see going forward. I mean, first of all experience done a great job, staying ahead of the curve, getting guys a little bit before they get to the market, getting them for the low saving of. Few million dollars on every contract at the bar thing I think will be interesting. I think if you made me bet, I say Anthony bars not going to be a Minnesota Viking after this year. That's just because I know they gave Eric kendricks money. He's making ten million dollars a year at that position. And I think Anthony bars and a look at it and go, I think I'm worth that at the very least American dry. So right, there are a little different. Exactly, right. But I think in modern day NFL that I would rather have bar because of what had his length and speed in the past game especial. So any her Teheran rug. That's gonna. That's gonna be interesting to see going forward. I think the thing I look at it like this to again, you said all the things about step on Dick's like no doubt about it. But he's not in the Julio Jones del Antonio Brown's vs making more than Julio Jones this year. Even after. Right. No, he's not in Keenan Allen hundred Hawkins. Yes, this is not. This is one of the worst. I think this is one of the most hammers Jimmy Watkins. I'm taking Sammy Watkins to this Hemmer. Adam feeling while who's the number one their team? Can we say before this becomes a thing Stefan digs we love you. We do good and congratulations. We're at original Wang q.. Let's make sure. But we're just saying, I'm just saying digs is awesome. And I would want digs on my football team because he has no weakness and he does everything good. But I don't look at anything in this game and go. That's great. And I would say really the number one receiver on their football team scheme last year was feeling. I mean the only had ninety. One catches for twelve hundred and seventy six yards Stefan digs had sixty four, eight hundred forty nine. He didn't ever had a thousand yards receiving this season..
"anthony barr" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"The year he's had last year and to some extent your before and if he plays at that level for another year we have okay well this is what wide receivers who produces much get paid you know there there's a really sort of simple correlation there it's you you get this many art you know you are this productive over this amount of years you're going to get this amount of money with anthony barr i mean there's just the his obviously he has a huge impact on the field no one saying that but his numbers aren't really there this is the guy who had four sacks a rookie and has had six and a half over the ensuing three years one interception over the course of his career in minnesota during the regular season no fourth fumbles last year after racking up six over the previous three years do you think it's important for him to have a not only a successful twenty thousand seater that maybe productive twenty eight thousand season where he does sort of fill up the statute absolutely i mean we expect deal to get done with his team just with the way that they've done it in the past you know early training camp middle you know beginning training camp for training camp i'm not sure that there's going to be anything just given the type of players that they're trying to sign and what's going to happen the next few weeks i wouldn't be surprised this drags into training camp or even further beyond that it's interesting 'cause this spring bill they they were playing bar outside more and what we were able to be little bit not as the more so three day mini camp they had in june and enrich film and talked about the defensive line rotation that's something that you know philly obviously had jacksonville have it the vikings want that as well so maybe you do play ball off the edge and send him into get quarterback and maybe that increases his value because it will certainly increase what he's doing on the field and maybe that translates to statistics you know in advance indicate that they don't want to really do this right now they wanna play this thing out or even if they wanted signed diggers 'cause they're i mean i think a lot of people come to the foregone conclusion that bar staying regardless because that's one of my members core players it might not be but you still have the franchise had available i think that's the best thing you could have possibly done with getting hundred on that frees you know that you know certainly we're going to do something to try to keep in pass rushers or premium so if you didn't find him now you'd definitely would use the franchise tag on him but maybe that becomes the option for anthony barr after the season if he does have you know indeed a very productive year so obviously whether they signed bar was they signed digs whether they signed both and there's a lot of players getting raises over the course of this one or two year stretch and they did just send kirk cousins to i believe a three year he made again a big number guaranteed somewhere in the eighties which is a big number big cap number for sure so and there's not really much flexibility in terms of that that can't figure that the vikings can really do in terms of creating space which can normally do with the five or six year quarterback contract you can create some cap space you can't do that with kirk cousins contracts so is there a guy or two on the roster who think you know even if he's a core part of this team right now might be on the bubble when it comes to the twenty nine hundred offseason or even possibly the twenty twenty off season just for cap raisins in terms of restructuring they're going to have to do something with kyle rudolph's ideal next year and seven point six million dollar catch it which is going to be thirty years old he's getting up there you know in his prime right now but as those years start to start to get up there even more with the biking his whole career i would i could see that number dropping and then asking him to.

"So that either the bottom is i think they're both tricky yeah and i would say anthony barr is is not a neil hunter caliber pass rusher but andy i talked about this on our linebacker show a lot of teams might look at bar and say you know there's some there's some untapped value as a pass rusher here we we can basically make him into a part time edge guy and and and go with that but the free he's got like freakish ability to like he's got he's got some stuff you can't teach so like i guess like i said i think he's really hard to value and i think all receivers are like the rams for example or in a really tricky situation because they gotta pay cooks and cooks sure is looking at walk and same draft class and saying why deserve as much as that guy will if you do a deal with cooks what does that do to your negotiation with girly you know you've got donald kind of hanging out over there too and so it's interesting because i think with a lot of these players you see second tier players getting to the market and first year players generally don't because they've got the tag hanging over their heads and everything else and so you know with the cap explode in the way that it has i think you've seen some of these second tier players getting into the market and being able to cash in because there is all that cap space across the league and now it's coming back around where some of these players are maybe a little less willing to sign with they're teams because they're saying to themselves away to second you know i saw this plane display this player make it to the market and they got x amount and you know i i am absolutely a better player than that guy so why aren't you paying me like it yeah now it's a maybe it's time to rethink the franchise tag to of oh although as you as you wrote last week kirk cousins did it i think that you will be taking the franchise tag from the owners dead cold hands i do not think that have much of an interest at all and giving that one up because that's it's it's funny because it's similar but different to max contracts in the nba it's just basically puts an artificial ceiling yum with the best players can make and so you know that's one i don't think that the owners will have a whole lot of inter because then what do you pay quarterback i mean it's just like i don't think they'll have much interest in in in giving that up that that said i think the players if they push for it a little bit could probably get something else out of the deal that makes well they could at least tweak it make it a little more realistic not lump in the the outside linebacker yeah guys stuff like that yeah so unfair and part of that's the nature of the game where the game's going and there's something like ambiguously from position to position but you're right like it's you know playing three or four versus a four three like okay like i'm playing the same position but my hands on the ground you know now i'm worth three million dollars more like how does that make sense you know and then there's other spots where positions are grouped together we're guys benefit right so like a lot of guards make it to the market the reason the guards make it to the market there's no guard tag number and so like in order to tag a guard you've got to pay him like a left tackle so the guards in the centers make the market for that reason yet safeties have their own number they don't benefit from corners right so safeties like safeties have this low number and that's depressed their market like you could make an argument like some tight ends or as close to being receivers as you know a center might be to tackle position lies but that tight end doesn't benefit from receivers making more money like they're sort of stuck to and so there's a lot of things that are clunky about the franchise tag rules it is yeah but you are right it is not going anywhere bert thanks for pinch hitting this week for for anti guy.

"Number one receiver those are the that's the guy who would have the least value that's the lease premium position it is but the neil hunter plays the most premium let's keep it on the defense and go hunter verse bar for now yup hunter is going to cost more because he's a defensive in and he does have sack numbers yup bars a more consistent player than highlight hunter a lot hunter i thought was a little bit up and down last season especially from considering how he had groomed and grown in twenty sixteen so kendricks just cost twenty five million guaranteed is bar worth twenty million thirty min word is he related to kendricks and then how do we feel about that number compared to hunter who probably will garner mid to high thirty million's depends on the land deal maybe mid thirty millions i would be more inclined to keep anthony barr i think it's a this is a hard one why do what are you maybe we start with kendricks or bar who's worth more they signed kendricks i but does end or is that because did they like him more or does bars deal harder to figure out so they got the easy one done i don't know the answer that i don't know who's more valuable to minnesota in their eyes kendricks or bar yeah look we'll we'll touch on kendra it's a little bit when we get to the top ten year bothboth vikings guys made the top ten which you know let's just let's just go to a now let's introduce our are unveiling of the top ten linebackers in the nfl heading into twenty eighteen as always the way we do this is a people style it is me it is and even oy this week it is our research or ryan taylor we all cast their vote for the top fifteen linebackers in the nfl if you got eight first place vote you get fifteen points second place vote fourteen points down to fifteenth place vote gets one point andy's votes count double because he knows twice as much about football as anyone else out there so let's let's start we'll do the countdown with the top ten but will start with the others receiving votes so this would if you're scoring at home this would start with number eleven that would be dante hightower than we have miles jack jamie collins thomas davis montes bertha ct kwan alexander reuben foster shack thompson and zac brown i didn't i actually didn't have a if you had a big issue with any of these guys getting left out andy i really didn't look at any of the other seeming votes and think like wow we really we really blew it here i thought all those guys are sort of fringe top ten guys and i think all the guys we have in the top ten are legit top ten guys yeah i would agree with that i i'm fine with it there are two guys redoing later in the show redoing like breakout guys because there are two guys who are not getting votes and i think we need to at least mention well sam i know for anyone bring this that a lightning round yeah say now i'm jared davis will be in this question a year or two from now he's got he needs to be he has some awareness he has to develop the he was he transitioned a little chop last year to the nfl which is to be expected but physical traits he has i mean he should be top ten by physical traits and then the other guy who's not really may might not be there but he is so improved he's become an important player as devante campbell in atlanta i think he is potentially a more gifted physically gifted version of k j right in seattle and that would be very similar k j right bobby wagner tandem with which will talk about in the minute campbell and.

"Into a twenty eighteen here let's let's talk a little bit about the the vikings here specifically anthony barr and and actually we have another clip here this is from the purple podcast that's a fifteen hundred espn twin cities anthony has kind of been taken away from the pass rushing role that he showed flashes out when he first came in the league in kind of exploded onto the scene in you know last year you bring up the point of okay well should they make him more of a pass rusher indeed you know anthony barr sat numbers have gone down every single year starting out at four is you know rookie year in the nfl and the only had one last season as mike zimmer said you're not just always looking at that number but when i'm looking at paying this guy's top dollar and potentially you know twelve thirteen million dollars a year base salary i wanna see different things that we that we're not seeing currently andy ah let's let's start at the top and then we'll get into the contract situation but yeah the the usage of anthony barr i mean he did come into the league that this is a guy who he was almost considered a little bit raw coming into the league you know you sort of mold them how you want to mould him and you know he's he's been used sort of in a more traditional way than i think a lot of people might have anticipated when he was drafting in two thousand fourteen do you take any issue with how he's been used i mean he was a he was a top ten pick back in two thousand fourteen no i don't have any issue at all with it it's this is an interesting discussion because what they're saying on this podcast is i think what some people around the league of insane and it's certainly what the vikings should say to anthony bars agent when they on first day when they sit down have contract talking while anthony bardon and having sex and he was drafted now this isn't what the vikings they can't say this but people around the league thought he was drafted to come off the edge of the thought he's going to be more blitzer more of an edge guide ucla and in minnesota scheme he has been an excellent blitzer but not necessarily a productive one in terms of sacks and so that's where the discussion will be from minnesota side is is that it doesn't have the numbers we can't pay them but what anthony bars agents will say is come on guys cut the bull crap you know darn well he doesn't have the numbers he plays within the context of a scheme the scheme doesn't ask him to get numbers you don't you don't get credit for knocking rodgers out of the game that's a big play that's part of it he's an enforcer he's a solid rundefender you've got one of the best run defenses in the nfl he does the aa gap stuff because he is a good blitzer he influences protections and you're not gonna play him off the edge could you already have everson griffen into neil hunter and brian robinson sometimes so he is a perfect fit in minnesota system and that fit in that system does not necessarily reflect dominance on paper which then that now the discussion is how do we pay him what's he worth because of that yeah well let's talk about that real quick you know they they made the move they locked up eric hendricks now they have a decision to make they have bar they have a deal hunter and they have stefan digs are all do for for for pay raises here presumably they can't lock up all three is bar the guy you let walk because you're looking at that and you're talking about just position value let's say let's let's say what each of these guys would demand if they got out on the open market i think you would say the the stack linebacker compared to the edge rusher and the the.

"Holid gets braxton the catches good pass blocker when i mean really has fancy implications but can keep help keep drives going by and blocking on on one plate and the next play he pops for big game you never know it all come kind of goes together so guy like that if you are a guy looking draft some vikings offense on the defense it's even more fun for individual defensive players out there you got tons of guys i mean harrison smith savior rose and injuries in day ho anthony barr ever seen griffith they get sanjay shell richardson come over from the seattle seahawks i mean there's so many players here that i could just keep going and those are all guys all guys said are are definitely worth drafting for individuals if as a player because they're all very very good at their positions all top guys visions overseas bureaus me a ball hawk going for those passes interesting day harrison smith big hitting safeties also good with the hands trae wings and their side of the receiver both are their secondary is very good and then obviously having a guy having eric kendricks anthony barr in the linebacker musicians everything with and celebrated of the defensive tackle an end so they're gonna get for the quarterback they have the speed speed linebacker to defend your running backs and your tight ends and they have the ability to lock you down on the outside with their corners and their these over the top quite a very solid as well so this defense i don't know how people are gonna score on them they don't they don't miss a beat bring everybody back that they had last year they bring in southern richardson from the seattle seahawks so i mean what what can go wrong here for this team i guess they healthy obviously obviously.

"Yeah the contracts that that the given the quarterbacks here or at least reportedly giving a quarterback's here this off season there that's a lot of money and you're right of cordell you know with a lot of money comes a lot of expectation but i think expectations would be high for the vikings even without a big name order back because of how good this roster is guiding with mike watt show from the vikings entertainment network mike now that the team has a player they believe is a franchise quarterback in kirk cousins who's the next free agent they're going to need to take care of down the road how is offense of unit going to potentially hang together yeah it's an interesting question i mean it's defined digs would be a guy you'd point to adam feeling has been taking care of caldas under contract for a few years i you know they just got riley recent mike remers they drafted pat l flying so i think all that's really good i think he'd look at stefan digs maybe potentially as one guy that you could consider then on on defense the core is really young and ascending so you're going to have defensive end demille hunter linebackers eric hendrickson anthony barr corner trae wayne and those are all maims i think they've looked at now the vikings will have the fifth year option on on the first round picks in that group anthony barr and trae wayne's and then of course you always have the franchise tag as a mechanism to retain a guy for another year or two but you know like i said earlier i think that the vikings have been so cap responsible and so so proactive with the cap that i think they're going to do a good job of spreading out some of the big numbers so they can absorb them you tear and keep the core intact that just don't see with with the tone and the language that mike zimmer and rick spielman used at the combine where rick said i never view a team as being one player away and zimmer said we've won forty games and four years because we have a good team not because we have one good player with them talking like that it just gives me the sense that they are very conscious of the team and keeping the team intact.
