"arthur blank" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"About Mark Barron's career. I remember Mark Barron being the guy that changed from safety to linebacker, but could also play safety and could also play linebacker and then there was like every NFL, like that combine year, right? We were all writing the same stories. Like the future of the NFL is, then it was like, yeah, or just get good safety and good linebackers, you know? Three time first, three time first team all SEC, Mark Barron, to you. Good. That's something. That's it. That's something right there. Yeah. We'll talk about it. Let's talk about a colt's somewhat briefly as Jim irsay becomes just the most the most powerful human on the planet here over the last couple of weeks. Between the Dan Snyder criticism, which may result in the commanders maybe selling after all, but in this case, so Jim or say, it's clear he at least was in the conversation about moving on from Matt Ryan and playing some Sam ellinger down the down the stretch here. Now the colts move away from reliable weapon for their young quarterback. And again, I don't know where this would have ended up, but it doesn't, it doesn't help your young quarterback to do this. But also they have fired Marcus Brady in a sort of bizarre emoji usage Jim or say had tweeted on Tuesday morning. This morning we relieved Marcus Brady of his duties as offensive coordinator. I wish this good man all the best thumbs up emoji. So there's stuff going on here. It didn't go well offensively this year. Went really poorly offensively. So yes, the offense coordinator bears some responsibility for that. You know, I don't know. Marcus Brady is a pretty well respected coach. This doesn't quite have the vibes of when the Jaguars were like, wait a second. Blake bortles is not going to be a multiple time MVP like getting Nathaniel Hackett out of here. We only put up 45 points in Pittsburgh in a playoff game of Blake bortles. No way. We need a better office coordinator, but it just seems like kind of the thing you look at and it's like, I don't know if getting rid of him helps. It just seems like something you do to appease some small faction of angry fans. He's a non play calling coordinator. Like, yeah, so it's like, who are you ultimately mad at, right? And sure, I mean, if you're Frank Reich, right? And this is just completely hypothetical. I don't know anything. I'm not saying I know anything. Sometimes how this stuff works is right? You are the, you were the presenter of the offense. If you're Frank Reich and you're taking things from everybody throughout the week and so maybe what he was getting from Marcus Brady is not good, but like that's also you being a head coach and being like, hey, just, you know, do this better or do it differently or I don't know. I mean, but again, we don't know what's going on. We don't know what the inner workings of the team are. What I do know, is that he was well loved there as of 6 weeks ago. And Chris Ballard loved him. I think he had a lot of fans in that building. So I don't know what's going on there. But it doesn't seem great. Yeah, things getting a little bit weird in an already disappointing year in Indianapolis there. The most shocking trade of the day is Calvin Ridley going out to Jacksonville for a conditional pick that can, look, if it works out, they basically lose like a second rounder. Obviously Ridley is not going to play in 2022. They, as we know, they brought in Christian Kirk, Brandon zay Jones, brought in a whole bunch of receivers who are more like complimentary guys. I think Calvin Ridley is a legitimate number one receiver. As we all do, have a just passion for stylistic compliments. I don't think he's quite that for Christian Kirk, but you got something here. I mean, if he's gonna be reinstated and come back and play like he had been in Atlanta, yeah, this is a nice pickup for Jaguars here. Yeah, I mean, he's a really good wide receiver. I had thought about putting him on my trade deadline primer, but then I was like, I just, I didn't know if any team would actually do it. But then I went back and I remember there was an interview with Arthur blank before the suspension because Calvin Ridley had been taking time to take care of his mental health, which is great. And Arthur blank had said, I think, you know, ultimately, it might just be best for everybody. And I do think Arthur blank actually does care, but like I think he said, it might just be better for him to play somewhere else. So I think even before the suspension, they were talking about trading him, right? And getting him to a new spot. And so I was like, yeah, yeah, I think it makes some sense. If you're the Jaguars, just economically, right? I mean, you're cutting the line and, you know, if you got something there, you know, you get to give it a little test run before you gotta throw Christian Kirk money at it. And that's okay. Yep, I don't see a problem with that. Yeah, the way his contract works out, basically he'll be in a contract year next year for Jacksonville. The 5th year option on his original rookie deal here. Man, there are a lot of people and Trevor Lawrence didn't play well last week. In London and he has obviously, you know, he's made a handful of mistakes in the red zone this year. People are, I feel like starting to jump off the Trevor Lawrence bandwagon at a time when you should not be jumping off the Trevor Lawrence bandwagon. Of all the things you should be buying in this economy right now, it's Trevor Lawrence. Trevor Lawrence's more Trevor Lawrence's. Yes. Two more to go here, Connor. Defensive backs. I don't know. I felt a little bit of warmth in my heart, William Jackson, the third, going to the Steelers from Washington. He's not the player he once was. I will say like, over the last decade, the two defensive backs, I loved more than maybe anything in the world. That would be William Jackson and also a Keller Witherspoon. So as far as I'm concerned, the Steelers now have like prime Darrell rivas on one side and on the other side, like prime Darrell Revis taller, faster, smarter twin brother. Wow. Okay. That's all I have on the William Jackson tree. Yeah, sure, put them in. You know, maybe you get like a James Bradbury type of performance out of them. Sure, I don't know. Why not? You know? I mean, some of these guys age really well. I mean, look at Darius slay. Different kind of player, but it was basically cooked in Detroit, but I love it. It's Mike Tomlin just saying, I want to play man defense and he's going to get to play man defense. But so this is my analogy with Pittsburgh that I was workshopping all day yesterday and didn't get to I didn't get to write it or anything and it wasn't good enough to make a blog. So here we are in the podcast talking about it. But steelers reminded me of your parent, not your parents, but like parents in general who are very set in their ways, but you take them to, like, I remember going with my parents to sushi slash high end Japanese steakhouse. And my parents don't like any of those things. And my dad just ordered like the same thing that he orders at every, it's just like, yeah, I'll take some grilled chicken and broccoli, you know? And he was like, yeah, we're at this place. It's like, nope. And that's the Steelers. It's just like, I want veteran man coverage cornerbacks. And it's like, yeah, but people are doing all these cool things. Nope, veteran man coverage cornerbacks. And it's like, okay, you're gonna be used Pittsburgh, you know? Yeah, get the new Joe Hayden in here. That's right. And the last one we have here, this is Rashad Fenton going to the falcons for a conditional 7 round pick from Kansas City. I guess he kind of became expendable in Kansas City with Jalen Watson playing better and some of their young guys ready to

"Pineda, who are of course the technical director and the head coach. What do you think? Can the relationship between Joseph Martinez and Atlanta United be salvaged this off season? Has a better opportunity of salvaging something without the Martina Mexican national team than Joseph with Atlanta United. So we were telling me there's a chance. Arthur blank, the owner of Atlanta United, the Atlanta Falcons is the only person on earth who can save Joseph Martinez right now. Isn't that the guy? Isn't that the guy you want in your corner? You're going to war with the guy in the front office pulling the strings and the head coach pulling the strings on the field. And it's not the first time that Joseph Martinez has gone to war with a coach. He went to war with Frank the board. He went to war with Heinz and it was literally a standoff where he said it's hindsight or me and they chose him. He was injured and when he came back from his injury, he wasn't the same player. He went to war with Gonzalo Pineda and lost out on that because he ended up being a player that came off the bench. Whether I liked it or not, and I didn't. I thought he deserved more minutes. He's a goal scorer, and that's what he did when he came off the bench for you. There's too many altercation situations where if I'm Arthur blank, I cut my losses. There's no way you keep him at his rate, but what he thinks he is worth if you're not getting the same productivity out of him. I don't see how he wins this. I don't see how Joseph stays in Atlanta. Yeah, so right now he's got one year left on his contract. It'll run through the next season. He's already requested her a postseason meeting with the front office to see what can be worked out. I wonder what you think the market would be for him elsewhere around Major League Soccer because there's obviously a track record, but he's about to turn

Packers i've aaron rodgers back in the fall for now but wide receiver devante contract to ciller flux. The hang up green bay agree to make out of the highest pay. Why receiver football. And there's a little bit of a difference of opinion because how much that actually because the andre hopton contracts and any events adams a great receivable rob tone or rolling devante adams should be the highest pay receiver in football. I'm rolling with it. I think he's tremendous and we saw the numbers he put up last year. That offense and what did he missed. We named last year. I think he missed tour. Two and a half games or three games. I mean he was a machine. He had to quarterback he made all the plays. He's the best receiver in football. I'm rolling with it. As they see me. I got no problem with him. Being ranked number one by madden and it was espn. I think they ranked the number one as well. It's arguable we know the andre hopkins's great naresuan digs and a few others but this is how it works. Even if he isn't the best. Like i said i have no problem with him called being called the best but even if he isn't it's his time this is how it works. He's up the inflation. He should be the highest paid.

Mama didn't drop on friday like it was supposed to during the show. I telling me we were supposed to usually get it at midnight with the gospel album like he just kept announcing dates and then they would pass and then you would announce the new details i got was that is delaying the already delayed album until august. Sixth in order to put out the best passable product without rushing. Anything and the reason. I'm scratching my head with this. One is because last thursday night. He had this huge listening party with a to a packed mercedes benz stadium in atlanta. Like forty two thousand plus people were there listening to the album in its entirety. So it was done done enough for them to do that. If i worked for his record label which i think i don't even know it might just be himself but it would be driving me crazy because you've all the momentum of promoting new album drop. Your fans are with rolling loud miami yesterday and i want to talk more about this because motor you touched on it earlier. Talking about the listening party at mercedes benz stadium snack bar. If you were there and you were hungry. You had to be rich because it was forty dollars for hotdog sixty five dollars for snack basket and fifty bucks for chicken tender zero dollars for chicken other good chicken tenders were those by the way are bigger prices. They say than super bowl prices that judge how big the prices are the photo and thought it was. But no. that's very lieutenant. By the way have you seen what stadiums are doing. Nowadays started down in atlanta with know the stadium. The falcons and stuff play. I think it's called mercedes-benz. Is it also same. One that i their sporting events arthur blank charges like the rock bottom prices for their you know pizza and burgers and things like that so you pay like five dollars or whatever like nothing's really that expensive so this would be the like triple or quadruple what they would normally charge for going to any of their sporting events and they do it basically for the season ticket. All they're saying you spend money on your tickets. Why should we. How do you for the price of of all your concessions.

"arthur blank" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Just the question everybody has is. What does it go into it take to acquire him from the Falcons? What would the Falcons want in return and Think the obvious answer is a first rounder. Yeah. Anybody who had us a first rounder for Julio, That'd be great. This guy's a future Hall of Famer and despite what they saw from him and 2020, I think he still has a lot to contribute, especially on a team with a Maybe a frontline quarterback and where he doesn't have to be the number one. And a guy like Kyle Shanahan's offense in San Francisco could be great for that. I think the other side is is you want a team where you don't have to pay a bunch of the money that's going to be able to take on Julio salary. So So, what do you think? The realistic asking prices here and obviously depends on whose involvement But what's it gonna take to acquire him? Yeah, I know the Falcons very, very much want exactly what you're talking about a first round pick and then also a team willing to take on all Those are the two main points that Terry thought No. One and he said, You know, even back when we were talking to him about potentially trading away that number four pick in the draft, he said. We're going to need something to knock our socks off. And that's how I assumed he went into trade talks with Julio on the table like you gotta blow our socks off if you want Julio and I always still kind of think that even given how things have transpired this past week with Julio kind of going and saying what he did Undisputed. I still think that carries on No, It's sitting there like we want a first rounder. We want you to take all of his base salary. But to me, I think team they're very much aware of what 2020 looks like for Julio and I think there are gonna be some conditional draft picks that teams are feeling better about giving. Let's say if he plays 11 or 12 games. Been the Falcons get a second round pick If he doesn't they get a third round pick. I've talked to a lot of just people throughout the league, and they're like if a team is going to take on his whole salary, the idea of putting in a conditional pick makes it seem like there's a safety net to a certain extent that they're not just giving an arm and a leg for Julio, even though AH, healthy, Julio Of Julio 2021 base salary and still getting a first round pick up. There's a ton of stuff that could be put together in a package right And it's funny because then you sort of have to put your money where your mouth is just such a relationship league right with these general managers in these coaches and even with the guys who, you know the ownership group that is sad Julio Jones since he was drafted, it's From that team. So what's the baseline? What do you think the absolute least amount is, And this is a funny question to ask is, obviously they want the first rounder and taking a bunch of 3rd and 4th rounders are probably a No go. It's probably an absolute no for that. So what do you think the bases here? Is it? Make sure he's not in the NFC. Is it talk to him about maybe where he wants to go and keep her relationship with Julio Jones. So he comes back after retirement is ah, part of the franchise will a trade him somewhere that he'd like? What do you think the baseline is here for the Falcons? I think the 1000 words such a unique situation that I don't know how much that they would really discuss with you earlier, like where he wants to get like I know that he will have such a great relationship with Arthur Blank and Arthur Blank is gone. You know too bad for Julio for the last week. War. Five years when you know Arthur Blank was the one that convinced him not to hold on training camp before getting his video between 19. So what you're talking about very sure about these relationships. But at this point you come Harry Point and Arthur Smith that are making the decisions And there isn't really our relationship there, especially not one like there was with The real endgame Quinn or Julio, with Arthur Blank. That's not their writing. It's going to be very interesting to see because I do think that it's the South. Get what they want. Which is a first rounder, and and they get unauthorized the table where he was willing to take off Julio's salary. I mean, I don't even know if it matters he's offering out at that point. I think the house is that we will have to take it. Yeah, it's one of the more interesting stories again. You may have thought you were ready for vacation. Kicking back in your preseason got going hot and heavy early on this year, Torrey, So I appreciate the time. Thanks so much. And maybe after the trade goes down if he ends up in San Francisco will definitely check in with you again. But thanks so much for stopping by. We'll talk to you down the road. I have great stuff by Tory McElhenney. Of course, the B write for the Atlanta Falcons for the athletic on the other side into the big story from this weekend. Wrench open and at rolling Darrow's because of her decision to decide she does not want to talk to the media anymore because of her own mental health. There was a big clap back, I think from from both athletes and media, I like having most most athletes were in support of Naomi Osaka, some media critical of her and then more understanding after she gave her statement as to why she was pulling out of the French Open, however, that sort of in conjunction with what happened in the NBA. What happened with the Brooklyn Nets? The Boston Celtics and Kyrie Irving this weekend definitely skewed my perspective and changed my thought process. Maybe how we need to look at these athletes. Naomi aside to clearly asking for help telling us that there's an issue here, and it seems sort of like the tennis world was not listening. And now nobody's winning. Naomi, a psycho, not playing tennis and Roland Garros in the French Open, does not have its biggest star in the women's bracket, so something we can talk about on the other side will hear some of the reaction from over this weekend as to why this is something we need to be paying more attention to and how this is negative. Affecting these athletes, and we don't really have a right to negatively affect these athletes. We're gonna get into that on the other side, as well as more reaction from the Giants over the Angels yesterday, four in a row, the best record in the National League on June 1st after Memorial Day. How about that? Your San Francisco Giants are in first place in the National League West, plenty more coming up. It's a Tuesday morning you're in the leadoff.
Who Will Pick Kyle Pitts in Thursday's NFL Draft?
"All right. Let's have fun here with. Kyle pits blank will select kyle pits right. I think it's the falcons. I mean friscos. Been talking about this for some time. He doesn't think that the falcons are gonna take a quarterback he thinks arthur blank is all in on on matt ryan for another year to have a new coach and the new general manager. And here's the thing like if you trade down four. And i suspect it'll be teams interested in trading up to four to get whether it's trae lance macaroni justin fields. If you're the falcons if you move down if you move down you're not getting cockpits. That's just the end the conversation because either the bengals. The dolphins entertainment five or six and presumably. You're not trading with those teams already have quarterbacks. So that's the math you're doing and if you're not getting likely to march as we saw a report on monday for peter king that maybe julio jones could be moved with which seems crazy what they need a cap space Could you turn down for. Cornerback if the falcons you could but again what gives you more value in terms of making that football team better. I think it's how pet. So if i'm the falcons and i'm not taking justin feels matteo's trae lands i'm sampling. Taking cup pits. Janssen the blank blank. We'll take pets. I think it's it's atlanta. But i also be surprised if the team traded up with the falcons maybe even take pits like ryan saying you know the train up to the quarterback but you know teams fall in love your dallas. You know thousand the four but you know if a team really loves him that much and it's hard not to love that much than you could see. Maybe a team being overly aggressive. I think it was on On the nfl network this morning on good morning football there was a segment that they do with the giants traded up. You know. I don't know who is doing the job. Esau just a screen grab of it on twitter but the giants gave their first or second ebony ingram and something else to move up to four to get pits and it was you know something that on paper make some sense but you know. Obviously something is not likely to happen but still i would say it's four is where he goes. But the falcons do make some sense especially they decided we want from me jonesing. Another playmaker

"Chap of Falcons owner Arthur Blank some pretty personal stuff in there about the new head coach Arthur Smith, probably more specifically in terms of what I generate some cliques or some some real reaction. The Matt Ryan stuff, you know, listen, It's funny cause first, but he deferred to his GM, which which is the sensible thing to do. But we all know that if they ever decide if and when they decide to either cut, Matt not now, but in two years if they have to do that for money, whatever, or trade him this year or next year. There's no way that's going down without Arthur Blank saying, Okay, it's it's time. Here's my final stamp of approval. You let the football people deal with the machinations of any trade. But in terms of Getting that green that green light blanks gonna be the one to provide it or not. And and I don't think that I I don't think that they need to be there. Yet with Matt. There's other quarterbacks and, you know, may if that, I think it's time to move on. I just tell you got time to move on. I think you could still win with Matt Ryan. I do. Yeah, definitely. You can. He still got the talent is young ish. Relatives of some of these other quarterbacks are much older than him. So I think I think they'll It's an interesting debate that they're gonna have with each other. I'm sure. All right, You ready to jump in the old time machine? Go back to some of the early highlights when we were kids inside the NFL, and it just never seen this guy dance around like anybody was having is much fun or more fun. In our next guest who's on both the seventies and eighties old decade teams in terms of what he did is 100. He played receiver, too, but it's a punt returner three times led the NFL in touchdowns once on Kickoffs as well. And that the man had style. Billy White shoes. Johnson in the house. White shoes. What's happening, man? Hey, don't Billy man I'm doing Well. Thank you guys. The last is worth living. That's right. Hell, yeah, absolutely built. People of people still call you white shoes like every day like basis is you're walking down the street. Everybody shoot, too. By the way, Billy Way. I gotta take Billy bodyweight. There was a guy that I went to college with, and he's one of my best friends was in my wedding, right? And he was the kind of guy if a fox hole guy, right, but never had never had success with the girls like we always do our best from But we always make fun of him. And he'd always where the building he would always he was. The guy would go to the bar he like. We're like a three piece suit. And he still would go home with other but but he had. He would used to wear these thieves, white shoes and to this, like, filthy bar, and we call them Mattie White shoes because of you. Well, please take that from me because I wouldn't have success in the white suit. Yeah, one exact. I'm sure you did. I'm sure you did that. Yeah. No, I have a big nerd. Believe me. Nothing wrong with that. Always that claim the same thing, Billy. Um, you know, you know, this is the she was the one thing but the celebrations were another. I mean, I think I'm like I started appreciating not appreciating like acknowledging paying attention to celebrations because of you. What made you want to be that kind of hurt layer and the moment I think a lot of guys obviously were influenced by you. Well, you know, take it started back to me in college, but you really do it to be different. No, but have fun in the same time. My trying to poke fun of somebody not trying to get in the face and say Here you are. It was just a matter of a Thank you. The guys will help me get to the end zone, So we all could celebrate, so they got just as much out of it as I did whenever I would get to the end zone and dance. I didn't know this and I'm just looking at it now. Widener College, Pennsylvania, Right? Was Weidner P a right. I mean, it's kind of improbable that you get to the league and have the success that you did. But, you know, I'm interested that get your, you know, opinion. Remember, there was a moment in the history of the NFL, where they just like they went straight. No fun league. They cracked down on everything. No group celebrations? No, nothing. You could do anything. You mean that was almost a slap in the face to you. Did you take it that way? Not to you personally, but like took away a lot of the I think like the spontaneous joy of the game, and that's why you watch it right. Exactly. That's a school, not a lot, but they were hurting and game and regards to that. But you know what Fear does to people when they get panic when they panic, So that's what happens. Always going to go. Everybody is going to do it. Now. Look how long it's taken. And now completely reverse where they want to do something to help support the crowd. You know if the crowd jacked up, get that 12th man. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, We're told that the great Billy White shoes Johnson iconic. I mean the celebrations just phenomenal. At a great player. I mean, on the old on the 75th anniversary teams of specialists So you've carved out not just the celebrations quite the football legacy, but you had if I'm not mistaken, you had to wait. 15 rounds Tiki Tiki out of Wait until around two to get drafted. You got drafted in around 15. What was that? Like for who called you? There's the secretary. I don't know. I thought it was a guy here to the maintenance before. All right. Cool building. We'll give it a couple of days with come on Cold cold Johnson. Hey, You know what, And that's the truth is when I was drafted the equipment man said all he come in here and I had five in the health condition. I wore extra special help me for two years. After even making the All Pro team and M V p of the Pro Bowl was stuff. My third year I was going into 11 suspension helmets and, uh, my head. Killing me. I told you I go to the the equipment, a guy, he says. Do you want? I need to help me. I'm tired. These headaches and stuff. You know who gave you this helmet? I said you did. Oh, that's right. I thought you were gonna be out on the first thing smoking. Now go on way. Laughed about that for years because he was serious about it. You said Yeah. I thought you were a nice kid. But you weren't gonna last law. I mean, Billy gave you the cup of coffee helmet, man. You're lucky. You're lucky Billy. In all seriousness in the era of head trauma. I know we could laugh now. Just think. You're good, but I mean, that could have been a recipe for disaster. Is that your name again? You sound good, Ugo. Look, Billy, you're 60 69 years old 69 years young. It sounds like I mean, you think, um, but you're here because of the grid irons Great Gridiron Greats Assistant fund We always talk about at this time of the season, but obviously support so many great causes And and really somebody great people who may not be doing as well. I mean, You played in a narrow with Bt was joking about it, but his real head trauma wasn't an issue. You get knocked out. Get up, Get back in your hurt and you're going. Um, you know, tell us about how important this is to you because you live that era but also to the league to protect those guys and support those guys who were the foundation of what we celebrate now every every week and then, obviously on Super Bowl Sunday as well. You know, it's it's good that you get an organization like Good on you. Race Assistance Fund and you get sponsors like Southern Recipe who work line. We'll also bring awareness and donate to the fund because it's such a needed cause with former athletes. Whatever reason. Sometimes they have their struggling financially. They're struggling with medical bills, and it's just made it especially these guys were the godfathers. The grandfathers of the league playing and stuff and it really helps these guys to get them established back on their feet. Keep moving. There are people out there who still care about that.

He's gonna join us four Eastern one Pacific. Many things to hit with Arthur, who's been with us a couple times on this show, but, you know, we'll focus on are they possibly prepared to either move on from that Ryan in terms of a trade, or could this be the year they draft his successor, So we'll talk about that with with author we got Billy White Shoes, Johnson, that would be a trip. He'll join us at 4 20 eastern Jamal Adams of Seattle got Kirk cousins from the Vikings. We've got various Leonard Outstanding player for the For the Indianapolis Colts home. Got some good guests here. You know, we talked about this yesterday, where it appears as if the Chiefs averted disaster with the barber. Who has grown a virus. Now, you know the NFL's worked under this this No this mantra. It's It's not subtle against more than a monster. They've actually applied it. Practical application Maura about you know, it's not about being, um, maybe on the on the wrong end of the competitive stick. It's about what's right and what's unacceptable. From a health point of view. We understood that. So if you have to go in there and a kid who played quarterback in high school apartment in college and is on the taxi squad is a receiver. Guess what tough He's gotta play quarterback this one game. When the Browns entire receiving corps can't show up to play the Jets. Guess what tough you gotta plow through and play. It looks like we've again avoided disaster. But if We got to a point and really in the next couple of days. God forbid if one of the quarterbacks tested positive. Are we playing this game? Yeah, I think they are. I think they have to wait. They are and they have to a two very I don't know what they have to. I think you're right that they would, But why would they have to Because of logistics? Well because of the programming. I mean the partners. The TV part of the TV component. CBS, in this case this year are our partner. Right that the programs have been have been sold and advertising dollars. Who's come a millions and millions of dollars? I think, yeah, of course you could move, but it's just It's very disruptive. If you do, I think the game plays no matter what. Even if, even if Pat Mahomes or Tom Brady comes out of the coronavirus, Listen, you're probably right. But I'm not a network executive. I don't really know how the dynamics of visa We've never seen this where Super Bowls you know, but possibly postponed or Were situations like this that are, um it's just unique. But if I'm a network exact and and I and I know that my homes can play, or Brady can play You talk about all the not millions to billions and advertising, you know, and all the other logistics are going to play that that that's true. But in terms of accruing the rating that you chasing you have a much better chance to get that number with no homes, and Brady, playing rather than the homes is back up and or Brady's backup, So I guess what I'm saying is You know, from the network port of you again. I'm not a network executive. I might be talking out of school, I would remain is pliable. That's possible. I don't know if that would actually work with the NFL and the other entities involved in the decision making. The civic aspect, just in terms of the city of Tampa, etcetera, But, man, I mean, we're not out of the woods yet until we get to that coin toss and we see my homes and we see Brady and we see all the stores.

Why can't Eric the enemy get a job? Uh, when you get the answer that one Then you will be one up on me. Well, if you don't have it, they were tracking it E mean, I made this statement of sun on NFL Sunday Countdown. You know when we when we were talking a lot about you know the Houston, Texas and Tom Watson and then we went straight into the coach stepped straight into The obvious, which is you know, Eric the enemy. Uh, yeah. They finally put in a request to interview Eric the enemy, but he was free the whole bye week to interview Because the chief had the only by weekend. He had see Aziz. You know, eh? So they relate doing that It picks reactionary to how did Shawn Watson has reacted? Not just Eric, the enemy, but the whole process. And I looked and I point out the obvious, which has been pointed out by a lot of people. You know everybody wants today We're after Andy Reid, and he's really Andy Reid Hall passes in the end. He calls the place and this is that there's no different than Doug Peterson format. Maggie. Both one held the same position. Same responsibilities who went on under Andy Reid to get head coaching jobs, You know, in Philadelphia and Chicago. So I have not gotten a, uh, logical explanation. And you know it. Was you the interview circle last year. You know, occasionally you're here. Well, you know, the interview was just average or just okay? No. His interview really is his resume, and, uh, and his resume is pretty darn good. And here's the other thing. Is that? You know, That's one reason why everybody's encouraged to do as many interviews this possible the interview process. You get better every time you do it, so this time around, I haven't I haven't heard speculation of reports of Eric hasn't interviewed. Well, I haven't heard that. So, uh, you know, I do know from talking to Arthur Blank, the owner of the Falcons. His feeling is that No. He does believe there will be progress made. A zoo, You know, I mean, it seems like 45 years ago, we had 78 black coaches seven, and now we're down the very few, and he just had to black. Yeah, two. Okay. Two black general manager has just been hired. Terry Pot, No in Atlanta and in homes and In Detroit and believe that you will see a process that will bear its fruit. In the form of identifying more black coaches, and it's not just exclusive to Eric the enemy. I mean, you know, there are others in there. How do you like to be Leslie Frazier? You know he's worthy of another job, but I think he's very prominent in Houston, Texas Picture. Uh, Jim Caldwell as well. But you know it zero the air. You know the lines of tired Aaron Glenn, I defensive coordinator. I think he's gonna be a guy.

And you know this. Maybe that'll bring Ah, better comfort level, you know. You know, this is a zit city, Derek the enemy. He's kind of been made the poster coach for this one. I have not gotten a satisfactory answer, and I think the teams were kind of afraid to even off the record. Give you a satisfactory answer. More. What's your read on the Niners? I mean, you know, they say they want Jimmy, but they're not extending Jimmy and creating additional cap room cap room that they desperately need toe retain their roster. There's all kinds of rumors Stafford and Don Arnold and rookies in the draft and to Shawn Watson and What do you What do you think? I mean, if you're a betting man who's who's behind center week one for the 40 Niners next year. I will say this. I think there's a reason why it mean I think that they want explore the market. She was available. See outfit, If if this was in the salary cap in their vision going forward, I mean, Obviously Jimmy being injured. It's a negative. I mean, your availability is part of your resume. And I mean it's Kyle himself talked about. You know the difference When Jimmy's and records say it gives in life, they have a winning record. When he's not they have a losing record. So, But can you tell me that he's going to be available for 16 17 16 games a year plus the playoffs? And you just a big question that I think that S so I think that everything you mentioned is on the table in terms of other quarterbacks. You know when you want, Say, Matthew Stafford, or this is tame. Donald. Sam Donaldson. Wanna make spot? That's to me because I even had a coach's think knows the 40 Niners scheme and no Sam Donald. It feels like Sam Dong, you know, is very capable. Going into cows offense and winning the Super Bowl. So Now. You know, it's far too shall march ago. I just wouldn't count on that, you know? Submissive little cows scheming does some watching complaint any scheme, and I'm not saying that state taxes matter, But I know this much He plays in a state Houston right now, that is gonna state taxes. I've been told that it's not absolutely if if he does force his way out that the Dolphins are certainly one of these before destinations nobody has told me the 40 Niners that that doesn't mean I'm being told everything right. I can tell you it don't count on it being the New York Jets. We've got to keep breaking Mike Greenberg can use only expected to be the New York jet. We'll pass it along to give us an idea.

Of course he's of course, he's going to play. A lot of people still assume that a you can kind of, you know, work your way around these things and and and find a way. Into a game. Now I'm assuming because he's practicing. He's going to play because we if he wasn't going to play, you just couldn't you couldn't take that risk I would imagine. But how do how do you give people an idea of how this process works? Yeah, This is the five step process and you could probably go Google on you See how it works. And to be honest with you when we, uh I think it was the Super Bowl. Probably the one that they were. The pages came back from 28 to 3 against the Atlanta Falcons. A zoo. We all remember there was a question about Julian Edelman, right, but I can I could remember even as they were laying out this new protocol. And which begins, you know, after the game, everybody has a baseline tests that they give in the off season. What you're Norma's. And then you have a baseline. Your team doctors have it. And then it works from there. Uh, And you've got a past five different steps. I brought up this question that don't kill me that Tom Brady's gonna be removed from the Super Bowl during a two minute drive because he gets up a little wobbly. And Dr Tom Mayor, the chief medical officer for the NFL Players Association, he goes. That's exactly what I'm telling you. We're all on board on this..

"Finally the guy to restore the roar in detail. Dave but that has yet to be seen but the lions feel pretty good about that though doubt about it dude former player in the nfl but hey wait. They just had a former player in the nfl. Didn't they matt patricia. Ever player or just a big dude. I think he just likes to eat a lot. Yeah dan campbell. Did play any his of big deal. Casey that leaves two vacancies left In this year's coaching carousel Those are still sit now. There are some interesting jobs. Yeah those crap as eagles trying to flirt with my guy killing more jared broke out checkbook to keep them in dallas as the oc. Hopefully he's just going up there to get a little intel and is not seriously considering that and then dave keep it in texas houston down there. This look like it would be a great job but you gotta disgruntled to shawn watson back. There will be traded. Willy stay will be grunfeld who knows. Ibm enemy went down there to interview coming with these guys. It seems like nobody really wants that job right now. So count mcnair dude. You look at video this guy and he just looks like an old timey villain kinda like arthur blank. We'll tired to the train tracks going to be interesting to see what happens down there. No first round draft pick in a disgruntled quarterback. Yeah the draft pick future is is awful down there. It's very bleak. But i think if you can somehow get in there and satisfied watson with the process of acquiring the head coach. I think he's i don't think this is to the point of no return and i think houston would be crazy. Their fan base would revolt and be insanely pissed. If they moved onto shawn watson after getting rid of hopkins the previous season. I don't know where they'd be beside themselves. In tabloid dave and you guys are no longer sitting in the angry chair but maybe could finally dam that river. You must be talking about. Philip rivers casey as he announced his retirement today after seventeen seasons in the nfl and one of the longest active streaks without missing a game including a game. He played on acl on a torn acl. That they just did a small surgery on and kept him on his feet man. The guy was played the game with passion. Casey the play. Obviously anybody knows that saw him play here the delivery style but he really that gama. Casey and I think if you played forum with them against him whatever it be i think ultimately He was a guy that you could respect because he loved football that much and it's sad to see him go. But i think it's a good move on his part to pull out right now and And just cruise into the sunset. He's gonna be heading into the coaching ranks in the high school area in alabama and dadgum..

"On. I think those odds are terrible. Let's go to a couple of other things outside of the playoffs. You talked earlier about sunday. Nights at the eagles. How doug peterson. Put nate. saad felt in the game. Jalen hurts outsor- mile eagles running back miles sanders on. Ip and phil yesterday said that the players were not happy. With doug peterson. There were other reports that even players went up to him on the sideline asking what he was doing. He said leave me alone. tough situation philly you've got rumors that carson wentz is going to be out Tough end to the season. Down in philadel-. Scotty why didn't carson wentz is gonna be out of verona elvia for sure and i'm hearing On top of the rhetoric. We've been hearing about how the players were mad at peterson. I actually have heard from my sources that half the team hates his guts. They can't stand him dead. They hate peterson's guts and they don't listen to him and they don't wanna play for him at all that he's on the outs with his team. So he's already lost the team. So there you go. I'm hearing the You know he makes them sick. So and now you know you saw some of it right there. They were players calling out what what decisions were being made. And that they didn't like it and then a couple of them said that wasn't true. But i guarantee you that there is a huge wave consortium of them that That don't like him. Yes i agree with you. His days are numbered now. Another team that had a tough end of the season was the miami. Dolphins had a chance to win and get in the playoffs in buffalo on sunday. They got absolutely hammered in all phases. Chan gailey resigned today. The dolphins offensive coordinator a lot of dolphin fans wanted to pin the blame on him and how he handled the chatter scummy. I why i mean. Tell me why you went games and you have this. Waste of time arguing about how this guy should go. You're not happy with can't they just realized they had a great season and there were too many good teams in the afc for them to get in. They had a bad day in buffalo but one bad game in buffalo did not ruin a great season and two was good. Any was no better than good. Okay let's not get carried away to its lowest. He was good. He was nothing more than that. I repeat so. I thought attributed season. I have no idea whatsoever. Why chan gailey resigned. He had to have been forced out. Because you did a great job with that offense. They won ten games. I think they should be happy with their season. The team and the fans and the media anyone that doesn't get that is just stupid to begin with well to his only started six games and after the loss on sunday there were some people chattering that maybe the dolphins should consider a quarterback with that overall pick that they are going to get from the texans in the draft year. Scotties it's often gm. Chris greer he says that is not going to happen to it as our quarterback to very happy with our starting quarterback of a nice job this year coming in as a rookie with no offseason and challenges of dealing with all that and Very happy with him and now forward to wash in progress here over the next offseason here going into next year for us Not really talking about draft strategy. Anything right now. The season just ended. And we're just going through a process like we do all the time in lucky with that here in the future. Great coaching great front office. The kids on the on the op for sure. Everybody needs to go to the beach and lay in the sun for a couple of hours. For christ sakes calm down. You had a great year. What is wrong down there. I mean this is what a waste. Can you imagine winning ten games and crying this much to your mommy on my god. I'd love to win ten games every single year. I'll take it. And i'll drink scotch rocks. I mean this is the biggest waste of time of a story. I've ever seen it. They're mad down in miami shot up ferrall up. What be mad about us. How bad the heat look yes It's amazing after some really bad seasons to they are not happy. Down in miami jets. Gm joe douglas's leaving all options open when it comes to quarterback sam darnold. We know they have the second overall pick. They're not going to get driver. Lawrence will they. Trade darnold will they draft a quarterback to that will be the question scottie now for the next three months in new york city. Yeah trade him for ho. I mean there's so many hat quarterbacks in the nfl. I actually am starting to let the club. Soda simmer down on the rocks. I didn't they should stick with him. And you know finally get a coach that doesn't suck and then get some players. They have no talent on the team. I thought their defense was tough. So worry about your crappy offense. Get him some players and get some coaches that know what they're doing instead of bountygate coaches and backstabbers and liars and weirdos adam cases such a cornball i don't think the guy she coach again at any level in the nfl of anything assistant head got nothing. He has proven that he had absolute no idea what he's doing. The jets of course are one of six teams that are looking for new head coaches assistance. All over the league. Scotty or doing zoom interviews left and right. Whether it's eric the enemy. Or roberts roberts delay the defensive coordinator from the niners debut in buffalo everybody's lining up the zoom interviews. The chargers are interested in urban meyer. There's also been talk about him. And the jacksonville. Jaguars arthur blank. The falcon's they are going to interview todd bowles for their head coaching job. And blanco said scottie. Matt ryan and julio jones not off limits this off season when it comes to trade discussions. He's going to let the new. Gm handle that Full rebuild for the foul can strip it all down the seine. I have no problem at all moving on from matt ryan and julio jones i know that sounds insane but you've already been to the well with them. You're blue twenty five point lead in the super bowl. You will never go back with those still again. They already got rid of thomas dmitrov and they fired their coaches and quinn and everything else. I didn't bowl has done a great job. After he was the jets coach. He proved how good he could be. Yeah that'd be a decent shot i could live with. I'm not sure they'll hire him. But i actually Be interested in entertaining offers for matt ryan and julio jones they could load that team up right now here and now if they traded both at us guys there would be takers. Like nobody's business for both of them. I can guarantee it at so You know i'm in the new. Gm down there. I would make that move. I i have no prominent matt ryan never got it done in atlanta. That's all the restored to it and he's only getting older and this year what did he do. He was terrible. They were terrible. It's over in atlanta. The whole mattieu show you know what he asked. He's melted completely. Maddie is you don't even deserve that. Nickname.

WSB money matters. Those West, Moss says. The market also worries about any major side effects from the vaccine that would deter some Americans from getting it. The Falcons have several interviews lined up this week to fill their openings for head coach and general manager Arthur Blank has a lot of competition with a half dozen teams needing a coach and just as many GM positions open think they recognize the roster, which is not perfect, but they recognized the talent that we do have, but he won't say no. The new brass needs to Don't Matt Ryan and Julio Jones mistakes when owner the layout of set of Dick tastes like that, and black says his GM and coach will have equal power, So it's very important that they speak the same language, but not always great to coordinators were interviewed yesterday for the head job, Eric Be enemy and Robert Saleh J.

I think it will be a coordinator than most people have not heard off. I don't think there's any gigantic earth shaking coach out there. The fans know of, but you got to start somewhere. So Eric the enemy. He was interviewed yesterday. As I said Robert Salad, the enemy is the hot candidate. The Chiefs have the best offense in the NFL, so I think he would be the leader. But there's six other teams looking for a coach. But that's true. And Arthur Blank says he wants he wants more than just the one year wonder what he wants. He wants a long term plan the way the heist but Trump he's going to be awarded tonight. Who you like. I like Vontae Smith, the wide receiver from Alabama. We've not had a non quarterback or a non running back win the award since 1997. He seems to be the clear favorite. Carter's Jill's Trevor Laurence is in there, too, but I think it's gonna be Smith. Okay, J thanks. We'll talk about that tomorrow morning with a few other things. Not to mention what happens in Georgia's runoff election. Do you think we'll have to clear winners? It's 6 41.

Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
