"atlanta falcons" Discussed on Big Blue View
"To bring this up. If if you've just taken the time to look and see what they've done in terms of running the football. It is pretty problematic over these past two games. Mike davis who is supposed to be there. Lead running back hasn't even gone over fifty yards in either contests. They're they're ineffective and running the football which frankly is a bit confusing in this game. or so. Far with the falcons. Because arthur smith was brought in to be this. This run oriented head coach. Who was the office of coordinator. For derrick henry and the tennessee. Titans where they all they did was run the football at people and they did a really good job of it and here. We are now in two weeks. They can't even run the football and it's not like they're struggling. They're just straight up not producing any yards and part of me thinks that their problems might be stemming from that because they can't effectively create any big plays running the ball or any any good yardage running the ball. This offensive lines not really doing an effective job of opening up any lanes for those guys. So i think like you know just from what we've seen run. The ball seems to be a pretty big issue. For the falcons big. It's a combination of things that you just touched on. Joe won the falcons offensive line especially in the interior parts. They're they're young. They're a little bit inexperienced. I don't think they have a lot of power at the point of attack just yet. They could probably use a little bit better. Footwork cohesiveness along that line specifically with jalen mayfield. Who is there left guard. I believe and then another is. They played the eagles in week. One who just shut down the forty niners rushing attack pretty well at that defense is probably better than a lot of us anticipated. Then they played the buccaneers. Who are basically a funnel defense where you just can't run the football against vida and that front instead you kind of have to force them to pass. Colin davis in antoine winfield. Junior very talented secondary. So i think they just got off to a start against two. Really good run defenses. They're interactive line isn't that great analogous as the giants who outside of allowing russia's to the edge. They've been really good at still occupying the gap. It's really those outside russia's in seems to happen a lot towards oceans minute is whenever he's in the game sometimes with his easels. Your laurie. I mean if we go back to week one that seventy yard touchdown run was was kind of on or laureate would just got bullied out of the spot there so i think i think they're probably not going to have a lot of success against this giant front but i will say if they can get creative and attack the edge every time o'shane is out there. That's the one one point of emphasis. Where i think they might be able to run the football on this giants defense which i still consider a solid rush defense. Even though i think are missing dalvand tomlinson pretty badly as well. Because danny shelton's not as good at occupying those two linemen against zone blocking schemes and that kind of makes blake martinez his job a lot more difficult to scrape over the top. Put himself in position to make a tackle. Yeah i agree with that. And there's also just the lead that philadelphia and tampa jumped out to it. Atlanta was able to make up ground against the buccaneers. But once they jumped out to like a two touchdown lead right around the mid game at that point. They didn't really have any choice. But to abandon the run and go to a much more uptempo offense just because they were even though it was wasn't even the fourth quarter yet they were running out of time. You you can't give. Tom brady with all of those weapons. A two touchdown lead and time. So we're gonna get to talking about this defense to very shortly before we do though folks we're just gonna take a quick.

"atlanta falcons" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Locker room changing the way we talk So as you can imagine for. The atlanta falcons a big concern. Is the major losses that they took over this off. Season two separate from the julio trade. They lost their starting center. Alex mack who is now on the forty niners tyler. Hennessy is expected to step in and replace him a guy who we talked up a lot from the twenty twenty draft cycle and then they also lost veteran defensive back ricardo allen as well as veteran db kion o.'neil to the dallas cowboys that is all topped off with the trade that they made with the tennessee. Titans barely getting anything back. Sending star receiver. Julio jones to play for arthur. smith's former team the titans. So this here we are This is a lot of losses to take for this team and that was something that was hamstringing than previously is some of the money that they were tied up to to some of these various players. Julio in particular now they've cleared up some space. There's not really much you can do about that now. Though they're going to have to wait until the following free agency cycle to following draft cycle to take advantage of the available money that clearing julio's contract does for them. But i think all of those four moves alone and they did lose other players. Those four moves alone are a massive hit for this roster specifically losing julio jones who has been when healthy atop three receiver in the nfl. Yeah and pretty much sense. He entered the nfl. But i think it's that when healthy part that is worth keeping in mind with this trade because on the face of it having a receiving duo of julio jones in calvin ridley and then having kyle pits to just throw in wherever now obviously are the folks. Listen to listen to this. Podcast during the draft knows that kyle is a wide receiver just masquerading as tight end. But having three receiving options who can do what. Julio jones calvin really kyle pits could do when healthy is honestly a frightening prospect for defense. Julio jones hasn't exactly been healthy he only played nine games. last year. Only had three touchdowns which scoring touchdowns isn't exactly the strength of his game. He was okay on. Catch percentage was about career average for yards per reception. But you know at thirty one. You kind of have to start to wonder and i think this did way. On the falcons worthy injuries. He suffered in twenty twenty the beginning of his decline and you combine that with his salary cap. I personally would have done everything i could to try to keep. Julio but i can see the the logic in moving on from him especially when you have a guy like kyle pit waiting there and you're going to want to get him the ball as often as many ways as you can. So you know maybe you can't give you just don't have room in your offense for a receiver like julio jones to get one hundred and fifty two hundred targets a season and the thing that was killing him a lot was the fact that not only were they paying. Julio a ton of money. They're paying matt ryan a ton of money they were paying jared a ton of money. Ricardo allen's contract wasn't cheap either. So all of this money was being spread around to some top players. But like just in general. You can't build a roster that way. There's some teams that have found ways to work around that. Like the rams for some reason always have ways to find money to fit in their salary cap. But the falcons did a very very poor job of it and that was what really hindered their ability to progress and step forward. This was a team that was really only built for that small window when they were highly competitive when they made that super bowl run around those few years after that the regression was clear. As soon as there were injuries they had no depth. They didn't really have a young core. There were always picking late in the draft. They could really go out and sign any big free agents to fill in holes. So now you know i think hopefully that that getting rid of julio's going to open the ability to start doing that soon as of right now however you know who the own. The mix is a loss of an elite talented player who has continually required double teams and also extra coverage from opposing defenses which is opened things up for a younger guy. Like calvin ridley to have a good start to his career. So now what do we do. We see more attention to calvin ridley. Do we see more of just a a base defense. And that's gonna make things harder for ridley kyle pits to get open. I think that there's there's a lot of question marks on how effective this offense is and also to like. How good is matt ryan without. Julio we haven't really gotten the chance to see much of that in matt ryan's career. I think there's just a ton of question marks with this falcons team and what they're capable of without him. Yeah yeah julio shows was drafted in two thousand eleven matt ryan was drafted in two thousand eight so that was what two seasons we saw of matt. Right three seasons star. Mathis hardy that those three seasons a decade ago since we have really gotten to see matt ryan without julio jones for an extended period of time it that is going to be weird. Now the falcons have a lot of receivers on their roster right. Now i went through encountered they have eleven receivers on their roster and i think that could be thirteen depending on how they use. Kyle pits cordell. Patterson said there will be. They do have a lot of options to try to find somebody to replace julio jones. I don't think you can really replace julio jones. He's kind of a singular talent but hopefully they or at least hopefully for them they can find somebody who can if not be that number one receiver than being number. Three receiver and hope kelvin. Really kyle kits can really shoulder the burden and pick up the slack that is there after trading away. Julio jones you that's going to be really contingent on their success is who can take up the slack who can really fill in for. Not having julio around to be that primary. Go-to guy for matt ryan. Now if we were to pitch best case. Worst case chris i think best case for this team is that they finished third in the division and some of the other teams in the nfc south one of the other team struggles worst-case. They're going to finish in the bottom of the division. They're probably going to have a top ten pick for just being realistic based on the regressions based on some of the holes that they currently have on this roster inconsistencies on the defensive side of the ball. There's some major major holes that they have defensively but the thing. That really convinces me that. They're going to struggle. Is that if you just look at their competition in the nfc south the tampa. bay buccaneers. Even if tom brady which we've been saying forever. Now if he steps takes a step back and he's not as good as he was last year which he wasn't perfect last year if he just slightly takes a step back that roster is still good enough to be the best in the conference the saints even though they don't have drew brees anymore. Even if the quarterback position is an absolute mess for the for the saints. They're going to still be a very very competitive team because of what they have defensively and what they have on offense. This is a stall well rounded roster and then. The panthers aren't up and coming team based on the moves that they've made by bringing in a completely new coaching staff. Sam darnold might be a step up at quarterback that roster is taking a lot of steps forward and there's a reason why people believe that they could be a surprise team next year because of the the upgrades that they've taken in if they've made over the last few drafts and also over free agency by going and getting a guy like sam darnold so i just don't really see the falcons being competitive enough against any of the teams in their division for them to finish better than last..
"atlanta falcons" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Accusations that they made trades that they made their draft picks the might have not been paying attention to some of these teams that the giants are going to be facing in twenty twenty one the things that they did. That's the goal of these. Episodes is so that you're familiar with these rosters and who the giants are playing. We already did the full. Nfc east so. If you miss those episodes go listen in as we talked about washington the eagles and the cowboys we also did a bronco show but today is the next out of conference opponent for the giants which is the atlanta falcons in early opponent for the g. men so chris. This this falcons team we were just discussing here as we were getting ready to start recording and preparing our notes. This falcons teams pretty underwhelming. This is not an exciting team. This is not a team that you can really say. Wow they're gonna take a next step next year like we were saying with the broncos. Potentially this is a team where they lost a lot and we're going to talk about some of those losses. The first major improvement improvement that we have to note. And i i guess you could consider it an improvement when you change coaches when your other coach dan. Quinn was struggling to get the job done. Arthur smith offensive. Coordinator comes over from tennessee. A guy known for loving to run the football. A huge change in offense of philosophy. Here comes arthur smith. I think that that's going to base some pretty good dividends as this roster has been aging for a while now it's just a matter of shifting direction and if the offensive line can block for newly added running back mike davis. Yeah that i think is going to be something to watch with this team yet. Also it will be interesting to see what impact this has on matt ryan because it is the. Nfl is all about the quarterbacks. And arthur smith was the offensive coordinator for the tennessee. Titans last two years. And over that time we saw ryan tannehill blossomed from really an afterthought and a bust in miami into one of the better quarterbacks in the nfl the transformation he has gone through since getting away from adam gays and being under arthur smith is really pretty. Amazing is something that hasn't gotten enough enough. I would say attention at the national level and it would be interesting to see how much of that ground and pound offense. The derrick henry offense follows arthur smith to atlanta or if he tries to recreate what he had with ryan tannehill and aj brown. Also corey davis. And the that. I think will kind of lead into some of our discussions with the rest of this team in this offense. But the falcons are definitely going to look different than what we got used to the last few years. Now whether that's a good different or or a worse different or just a lateral different. That remains to be seen and a lot of people said during the coaching cycle. That arthur smith was one. You're going to be one of the top. Three candidates that was available so for them to go and get a really good head. Coaching candidate and not really a surprise. Because the falcons have been desirable franchise to be a part of because of the direction that they've been under their ownership with arthur blank. They've just always had really good resources. They've always been well-supported supported by blank. And now here. We come. Arthur smith i think that this is going to pay them dividends but the question is do they have what it takes to actually be a competitive roster twenty twenty one with some really really good teams in the nfc south. And i we'll wait until the end to touch on that. Getting into some of the free agent editions. They had the upbringing in mike. Davis was one that we already hit on who had a pretty good year stepping in and taking over that primary role in carolina when christian. Mccaffrey was out. He started to flash things. he was pretty productive. This is a big bowling ball. Type running back who is not afraid to take some contact not afraid to take some hits and he might be able to fill that role not necessarily as derrick henry but just as the power back that arthur smith is going to be seeking for a very heavy run. Centric power run centric based offense they also did bring in doron harmon. Who is a veteran defensive back. And then the last one which we were debating how we really think arthur smith might deploy this guy but they also added in cordell patterson who has been used in so many different ways by so many different teams since being a first round pick. We know. he's a talented kick returner. He's played receiver and he's played running back most recently with the chicago bears. So that's just an added weapon to the fold and this team actually is doing pretty well in the weapon category. And that's kind of a through line for forever really with the atlanta falcons. They always seem to have weapons at their disposable. You know whether it is the. And we'll get to the since departed. Julio jones but then calvin ridley even going back to when they had mike vick under center or running around the backfield doing whatever he did. You know they're a team. You had to keep an eye on offensively that they always had guys whether it was a running back. Wide receivers quarterback tight ends. What what have you. They're always guys who could hurt you on the offensive side of the ball guys who could generate big plays like that. They've always done a really really good job under dan. Quinn of having some talented guys. And it seems like the whole time. Matt ryan has been the starting quarterback he's always had viable options in understandably. They lost julio jones. That's going to be a massive hit. But they still have decent quality players that can pick up some chunk yardage with guys like cordell patterson who they can get creative with. They can use him not just as a traditional receiver or traditional running back. He's a guy that has shown the ability to play multiple things but their draft. Actually they did a pretty good job in the draft. That's where i think. The optimism is gonna live. Four falcons fans is that the direction in a couple years. I think can be pretty good with this team. Depending on how long they want to stay married to matt ryan if they wanna keep him around or if they wanna maybe try and start over they do have a pretty good young core from the last previous draft and then this current cycle of selecting kyle pits fourth overall is only going to be a huge impact to them coming in a tight end tandem. That is him an hayden. Hearst you also have richie grant who you were telling me before was one of your defensive backs in this class and then jalen may a pretty good offense of lyman. Who's probably gonna plug in at guard somewhere. If they can even fit him because they've already got like a okay veteran lead in starting group for this offensive. Line jalen mayfield. I think is going to be an interesting guy. Interesting case to watch them go from third round up. Because i think that's where the the real meat of their draft is although they do have your guy along the defensive line forder former notre dame player whose name. I'm going to leave to you'd if i audio edgy there. We go audio edgy. He was a guy we we both talked about before draft. He's got all of those physical tools. It never quite seemed to put it all together in in college. But if he's if this new direction for the franchise you know they. They have needed a defense for a long time so there's going to be opportunities for him if he can put it all together to put those tools to use. He could make an impact but just to go back to around jalen mayfield. I liked him in the draft. He was inconsistent. But he's just a big offensive lineman Six five three twenty five three thirty somewhere around there and i. It was remarkable. How smooth a mover he could be a little inconsistent but for a big guy he had a really good bend like he is a natural knee bender. He didn't bend at the waist. He didn't have heavy feet he could kick slide pretty well at that tackle position so he could have some some flexibility in how he develops they could slide him inside the guard. They could try him at right tackle. I i don't think he's going to be replacing. Jake matthews at left tackle anytime soon..
Player Found out About Fake Invite Upon Arrival at Atlanta Falcons' Camp
"There's a young man who got pulled a bit of a hoax x. austin p. governors ontario bryant fell victim to a tryout hoax. He got a taxed he bought it and it didn't work out now. I don't know about you.

What Should the Atlanta Falcons Do With the 4th Pick?
"Talk about another quarterback order player Who people these days. Certainly no. and that's matt ryan about that for a transition Terrific quarterback for very long time. 2016 was his best year was the mvp of the league with the falcons and took that team all the way to the super bowl and then from that point forward it has been sued of a steady decline for the team despite making the postseason in two thousand seventeen. They've won just eighteen games over the last three years and with that regression the falcons might hit the reset button in this draft with ryan being almost thirty six. They have a new head coach. And arthur smith they have the fourth pick. Overall general manager is teri faulk no and he said quote. We wanna stack good quarterbacks. Its prime time to do it. When you have a player like matt ryan because when you can get in the white quarterback you don't have that pressure play them right away so it opens up so many possibilities and we have to make sure we're evaluating those positions and we feel good about what we where we are there a lot of different ways to take that it certainly what i would say if among other things i wanted someone to come and try and trade for my fourth pick in this draft so teddy. I'm giving it to you directly here if you were the falcons right now. Are you looking to bring in players to help matt ryan try and win a championship again or are you looking to draft his eventual replacement. Said like i said about the smokescreen season. There you go right there you make everyone think that you're okay with draft a quarterback in developing under matt ryan. But you gotta take advantage of the quarterback desperation which is in this draft and everyone one maybe sneak up if they're guy falls to four and go ahead and get him because i think they should build and they need to usually head coaches come in. And they'll want to stack pile not quarterbacks but draft picks in terms of building a foundation model for their team so i would say definitely take advantage of the fourth overall pick trade down. Try to see if you can get some building.

You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up

"Piece about how the nine of the 10 last Super Bowl teams have a soccer interest, meaning they own one or partially own wonder controlling interest. Who else is involved in with that list? In that list. Well, well, you go back to the San Francisco 40 Niners were in the Super Bowl last year against the Chiefs. They actually just this week increase their equity ownership of leads.

The L. A Rams, who lost to the Patriots the following season. Their owner owns Arsenal on if you go further back beyond just the last five years, the Seattle Seahawks their owners own a piece of the MLS. Founders, But that's really the extent of it. It's more the last five. Six years where you've seen this trend before that, it was it was Seattle and the Patriots. The Patriots on the MLS is revolution that play at the same Stadium is the Patriots, and it's a It's not just the football connection. You point out two different multi team ownerships, right? The the owners of the Philadelphia 76 years on Crystal Palace, the team in the English soccer first division, right? And you're seeing this success force you're seeing multi Team ownerships, Uh, enterprises that owned more than just a team in one sport is sport. It's sports become big business. The ownership is crossing Not not just sports sports live boundaries but international boundaries. So, um, we'll probably see a lot more be more and more rare to see teams make the final finals of their sport. Just have that one holding new ownership group that that one team, I guess for. Some of these guys have some of these owners. Obviously you're super wealthy. It's fun. They they love sports. There's a part of that. Um, there are certainly owners who go at it that way. I mean, I think the new owner of the New York Mets see Cohen goes out and looks at it from this is fun. This is something I've always wanted to do.

Lend better so that might be where you got the job it was. Joe jackson number seventy three rookie plays left for the detroit. Lions he was quite pissy especially with Colston he ended up hitting golson in the Headbutting questioning the got into it with bare. It and somebody else. Came up behind goldstein. In the back and somehow j. p. p. ended up getting a flag Also seventy-three jona jackson jeremiah. Johnson whatever jonah jackson the rookie left guard for the detroit. Lions did a black-tie block targeting wilga allston. He was a nasty player. Didn't like it. He had a large chip on his shoulder. So i'll do it all right. What else we were talking about. We had the potential have three players with ten plus sacks in week seventeen and we couldn't quite remember what the breakdown of that wasn't who it was. It was j p p. Had nine and a half devon white had nine an shaq barrett had eight and a pursue gotta sack. He was gonna sack. That really surprised me. I know that we only had one sack gets actor. I don't remember sabinas. His usual bear self talk about see really quick anton brainy that graphic. Fox's graphic. Tom brady was so jacked huge like this. I want to take out a photoshop. Tom brady head on sees body. Look like that inspiration for that. Graphic was it looked like the incredible hulk. I mean was just. He looked like a superhero. Not the isn't but it doesn't really look like yeah. You were talking about doing that while we're watching a game when you need to do now. I did not want to break out photoshop. i wanted to watch the game. Yes yeah put it on your list. And then we asked whether there was an incentive clause in shack bears franchise tag. I don't think from what i could gather. I read the cbi not the whole thing. Just the part on franchise tags. And i don't think that there are incentives with the franchise tag tag is basically. Just here's how much money you get. Based on kind of the average top five salaries at the is not quite that i mean the the calculation is a little more complicated. But it's the gist of it is so you can't add anything extra to just a flat out contract non money asset. I tell you what we're going to talk a lot of tough decisions to make. Every team is does free agency coming out and going make aspects that there's no way so many players are going to get cut if a only if they drop it was gonna be over fifty million close to sixty million cap last. That's insane i dunno. They're they're add have to do some. There's no way that we can have a cap of one hundred forty five million next year after having a cap of two hundred million year each anyhow. I mean even even if the cap stays the same or increases a little bit. We still got a lot of lot of stuff. We got to do with our demand a lot of people. We gotta signed me money to know they are. I mean now that you can blame him every single person on this team. Thanks so the reason why we were going to the play of only one person that's true for that's not true. I do wanna talk about get segue into incentives you know seal was up for a bonus based on whether the bucks defense ended at Top five in net yards allowed and we were sick so he didn't get it like five hundred thousand. Who's it sale. He didn't get it that we were sick. We were so close down half a million dollars. No maybe philadelphia. We needed washington. We needed to allow one hundred yards less than washington redskins her in the fifth spot and we would pass them well in their now in the spot and yeah we allowed. I wonder did ronald jones. Have a clause in his contract for one thousand yard season because he came up. Twenty two yards short now. Was it twenty two yards yeah. He's a stone's rookie contract. So i don't i don't know i don't think so but brady. There was a clause in his contract that he got five hundred. Sixty two thousand if he remained in the top five in passing yards this season and he was third bird. Yeah after the state he's up for the fedex player of the week. Third week in a row that i count on crazy and the proposal. It's like said now they should just may make the pro bowl for being as old as he is there. Football she had forty touchdown passes forty. And what twelve or thirteen interception thirteen. And it's the only it's the second time he's had forty or more in a season. Wow man i tell you we call that one. We called it when we signed him after. Look at it some game film and stuff we were like. Oh he's got so a lot of yards a lot of touchdowns less interceptions and jamie's what a lot. What james thirty thirty last year. Yes so the less than half now has the interceptions curry made a difference so that if for the fact check polyps too bad not too shabby were slipping a little bit we And we were bad thousand for..

"The next one New Orleans in that much better granted they have less need already built team now in a really new blood of free agents or cap space. Still good to hear your enemies in financial distress and that they have a lot of instability on the roster Idaho's Deville and they can't afford to do it all right so it looks like the Landa Falcons are going to be fighting with themselves this year. That's a good thing. Carolina Panthers are going to fight with shadows. They're not going to be a factor at all this year. I don't think I really think they're tanking. I don't know if they're trying to get the quarterback from two Lane Baylor Baylor or not. I don't know anything about any of that mess. But it seems to me like they're definitely setting themselves up a tank. Wow that's kind of Matt Rules Track Record doesn't he? He does good like the third year. Yeah well the first year he rebuild second ear around yeah they start getting better we get at least one good year stopping the kittens in the for a couple of games. That's exciting man.

The podcast goes out to twitter facebook youtube and so does everything else. So there we go. Things are looking good looking excited. We got the draft coming up. Don't know who we're going to get. I don't have anybody in mind. Let you know the last player I really wanted to go was claiborne. Cornerback ended up going Dallas cowboys. Any kind of had to sell career. It was kind of like after that I was like. That's it I'm done with. I thought he was going to really do something. And but I I like to wait until they get in the NFL and see how they play. And then then I get excited about players yet. That first year is always such an adjustment coming from college. Log On can't do it. I mean what is it like? Fifty percent of all draft players are blessed. That's toss a coin is flipping a coin. Don't I don't like it. All invested in a player and then see him go to an opponent coercion. Somebody in the division in Or or get all investment player and they make a teen Anna. I don't see how people have the time to study all these guys and stuff but hey. I'm glad there's people out there doing it so I don't have to. Of course if nobody else to do and I'd be well off in it and you're too busy breaking down the game film that.

Just a sheer number of conferences and Ka- it's just like I like the reservoir trollers NFL because like AFC NFC simple enough sixteen teams in each simple college though man and the brackets and that how they rank the I don't get it. Do they even have a cap? On how many players who can have on their team. I know it's not fifty. Three man. Rosters he look at the sideline of college game. It's a pact. As the stadiums are like a hundred thousand guys on each day. You just seems like there's a lot of guys and then it's like how many of them never play or play like three series in a season. That's it you never see them again. How do you get invested in players that way and where these guys go? I've met I've met more ex. Nfl players. I have ex college players. You know people just made at the college football scholarship or what ever played to college Make it in the NFL. I've only known one person like I don't know anything about it.

"Fm Get started right now all right well. The Atlanta Falcons had twenty-nine free agents this year and they had no money because they're all given an automatic. Well they did do that. But they restructuring his contract so their pay putting it off until next season. He's been doing that for a long time. Isn't he? Supposed to get like forty one dollars hitter. Hap head is like forty million dollars. particularly they still have no money this year like their. Gee I don't know what their GM is doing. But we'll go ahead and go through. The different units will start with the offense. They had no quarterback issues with free agency. They do have their quarterback up. Mount Sam's who is unsigned. He ended the season last year on. Irr So. I don't think that they will resign him. They've had some shakeup on their offensive line. Now they're offensive line for the last. Several years has just been downright offensive but then they lost some people to sign. So they're focusing again. I think on the offensive line. But who knows how that's GonNa go because it hasn't gone so great. In the past few years they lost tackled. Ties Sam Bri low to Tennessee. He's signed a one year deal worth one point six million he was a backup right tackle in Atlanta last season but I think he saw some starting time injury. You play quite a bit. Actually they also lost guard west. Schmaltz Schweitzer Schweitzer's whites are to Washington. He got a three year thirteen and a HALF MILLION DOLLAR DEAL. He was leading have he did his. He was the BACKUP CENTER FOR ATLANTA BEHIND ALEX. Mack cozy go in there to Washington as a center or a Gourd. I don't know that's a good question. Because he is designated as guard on spot rack. But then on Atlanta's depth chart he was a senator so maybe he's pretty versatile. They signed guard Justin mccray from Cleveland. He got one year one million dollar deal and then they also resigned. Guard John Wetzel on a one year. Nine hundred thirty thousand dollar deal. They waved tackle Lucas McNeil. And then they've got Sean Harlow. He's a guard that was on their practice. Squad remains unsigned for the year. They did have some moves in the running back corps which were kind of surprised. Zine they brought in Todd Gurley on a one year deal. It's a five hundred five point five million dollar based salary but then the rams are also paying him twenty million dollars nothing dead cap. What your what what they cut him. It's GONNA pay him. Twenty million. And then the Falcons are paid in five and a half million or so. He's making twenty five million dollars here. Yeah that's why you don't pay running back in the rams are paying twenty million. Yeah the rams are the worst in the league as far as cap space goes. Oh Man I tell you complain about the buccaneers as much as they want about winning and losing August of we just do not have capi. She's like this now. I think last year was the first year in a long time that we've had a money crunch issues in the off season but it wasn't even really that bad to the point where we had to cut a lotta no high dollar players and we certainly don't have we're not paying people twenty million when they're not even here and we do that for coaches. Yeah but that. Don't count count towards the capsule. Brian Hill. They offered him a tender contract. T signed so. They've tendered him and then they have devante freeman is a free agent. Who of course was there starter. Last year he battled some injury issues but they have not resigned him. You would assume that Todd Gurley is probably taking that spot for him and then Canton. Barner was third string running back. He still remains unsigned. They signed a fullback. He Smith to a three year contract. This is crazy. He played with Dallas from twenty fourteen than in Twenty fifteen. He was on the practice squad and then he was there in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen but he was a linebacker then he went to Oakland as a full back and then now he's signed with Atlanta's fullback so he's an interesting one if he makes the squad it'll be interesting to see how they used him play with a last year landings start now wasn't sure await he might have been two thousand. Nineteen okay well. He got a three year. Contract with the Falcons. He's pretty S- blocker. He liked him. Well like fullbacks underuse use. The will never get one. They have Shakeup in their tight end core. Of course Austin Hooper went to Cleveland became. I think the highest paid tight end. It was ridiculous you got a four year forty two million dollar contract which he did well in Atlanta. But I wouldn't have paid at all like what are you doing? Cleveland SLEEP CLEVELAND. They'RE BEING CLEVELAND. I guess so but he was a big moneymaker for Matt. Ryan like I had Austin who burned fantasy and he was good for like twenty points a game at least so yeah he was a really solid tight on keeping now no. I don't think anybody from Cleveland from Jacksonville. Now touching that one. The Falcons traded the Ravens a second round. Pick in a fifth round. Pick for tight. End Hayden hearst in fourth round. Pick good Lord I now which is how much I. I don't know it's not on there yet because you know some of these contracts haven't been finalized but hers was the first tight end taken in the two thousand eighteen draft. He was twenty fifth overall selected by the Ravens so they're trading away their first round pick from two years ago. You have to think there's issues there something there. Will you know it's like we? There's a lot of rumors going around that we're looking to trade OJ. Howard I remember last year it popping up news. This is two years in a row and you know Jay didn't really do that well this year. Now he didn't and we have great who I think. I think bright had better chemistry with Janus last year of kind of irrelevant. Now because James has gone. It's Tom Brady is that you don't really know but then you have to wonder if it's a performance. Issue the Falcons also agreed to terms with Kyri. Lee was with Chicago in Twenty Fifteen Detroit in two thousand sixteen and then buffalo in seventeen eighteen. They waved a tight end. Alex grave from their injury Flash Reserve list. And then Luke stocker former buccaneer. He is still remains on sign. He's a free agent so they've had some shakeup their complete Chicago Titan. Yeah and it's funny. Because you know in Carolina we saw. They were having a lot of turnover in their wide receiver core. We're not seeing that with Lena. They did sign. Luqun treadwell from Minnesota. But it's a one year nine hundred thousand dollars the also exactly he's a deaf guy and then Justin Hartley who was second-string last year. He is a free agent but remains unsigned. He played in Fourteen Games for Atlanta in twenty nineteen. He got twenty six targets and one hundred ninety five yards. So yeah and that's it on their offense. They've got some turnover in offense wine and then tied imposition tiny retention and then running back to so basically they're wide receiver core in their quarterback. Position is the only thing that set on the defense. They lost some guys on their defensive. Wine Jack Crawford Defensive. Tackle went to Tennessee on a one year. One point one million dollar deal they also lost Adrian clayborn to Cleveland Cleveland. What do they do? I know an Adrian clayborn. He has like this on again off again. Thing was Atlanta. How many times he left. Yeah like you into the Patriots came back now. He's GONNA Cleveland. He signed it. I think he'll retire said Falcon probably he got a two year. Five point seven FIVE MILLION DOLLAR DEAL WITH CLEVELAND. So he's going to be a backup rotation. Yeah probably Atlanta. Also waived defensive tackle Rasheed Haeggman and he was on the injuries slash reserve lest they extended Tyler Davidson defensive tackle and then they also signed Stephen means they're unsigned free. Agents include defensive. Tackle Mike Bennett. And I don't think it's the same Michael Matt. He's really go with the middle initial or Mike Mike. Well that's how he was on the depth chart might gotten and then Rasheed Haeggman. He's on signed so I guess. He became a free agent to both of them in the season on injured reserve last year in their linebacker core. They lost at this kind of defensive line right I get so confused with the three four still. It's so hard for me to round my brain around so outside linebacker. Big Beasley got cut and went to Tennessee on a one year. Nine and a half million dollar deal and then Devante Campbell. Outside linebacker went to Arizona on a one year six million dollar deal so they signed outside linebacker Dante Fowler from the rams. It's a three year. Forty five million dollar deal and then they also sign inside. Linebacker will Roy Reynolds from Cincinnati on a one year. One million dollar deal they also agreed to terms with linebacker Edmund Robinson who has been out of the league since twenty seventeen prior to that. He started his career in Minnesota. From Twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen seventeen with the jets and then hasn't been in the league since them at safety. They resigned to rod these men on a one year nine hundred fifty thousand dollar deal. They've got unsigned free. Agents in Strong Safety Kemal Ishmael. Who was second-string last year strong safety? John Cyprian who ended the season on I R and free safety. Jj Wilcox who also ended the season on Ir and then at the cornerback position. They Lost Desmond. True Font who they released after they failed to trade him per bleacher report. They freed up five million dollars in cap space but he still carries a cap hit of fifteen million dollars more in dead money. What IS WRONG WITH DETROIT? He signed a two year. Twenty million dollar deal. They re sign bleeding ray Wilson to a one year one point two million dollar deal and then they also agreed to terms with Josh Hawkins. Hawke who was with Green Bay from twenty sixteen at twenty seventeen and then in two thousand eighteen was with Carolina and Philadelphia and then hasn't been in the League didn't play last season Dhamar Miller who was in on their second-string last year remains unsigned Martin. Yes when I say Miller. That's close enough get Miller. There's it's not even in my notes on special teams. They extended their kicker young. Ho coup from last year. Is that how you say you had him on your fantasy team last year? Yes you did. I didn't have to pronounce his name. They extended him one year. And then they're punter so they had last season Bossier who ended up going on. I R. He's a free agent this year. They haven't resigned him but they did. Extend Ryan Allen to a one year extension and then they also agreed to terms with another Punter Sam Irwin Hill. So it looks like Bashar you out of a job. And that's it for their turnover as far as our cap goes. They are thirtieth in the league for cap space. Which is terrible. The Rams are the worst they've got at this point about one point six million grief. It doesn't even cover their drafty and adding. That's accounting for their draft. Yes still came on anybody for one point. Like what are you GonNa? Do you know the beginning of the season. One and League Minimum Player. Alot. Dear love to hear it. You couldn't happen to a better team. Yeah and this is their top fifty one for their entire roster there at negative six million so they're six million over but of course only the top fifty one really counts but where this would make a difference is if you are getting rid of a player in your top fifty one. Then another guy comes up his factored into the top fifty. One so booth yeah. It's somewhere in there again. We said earlier Matt Ryan restructured. His contract is so bad. Third Sabbath grew next year so his cap hit in twenty twenty went from eight million in base salary to one million but all they did was converted the difference to a signing bonus so his cap hit prior to the restructure was twenty four million and now it's eighteen point nine million so they saved about five million there. They also his cap hit twenty. Twenty one is going to be forty million crow. Totally screwed there. It's going to be a record. Yeah I think they're gonNA cut him like if I think this well you know. We talked about this last the last season that if Dan Quinn was gone it might be the end for Matt Ryan there to an Dan. Quinn ended up getting another. They kept him. They didn't fire him. He's on the last year of his contract. So you know if it doesn't go well for him. I don't see how anyone is safe. And especially when you have a forty million dollar cap hit next year. What what are they? GonNa do with that. But even if they caught him at camp it's still gonNA PAM must will keep the quarter. Maybe I don't know we'll say they also restructured left. Tackle THE JAKE MATTHEWS. So his base salary went from ten point. Five million to three point five million so that was seven million dollars. The cap hit was sixteen million prior to the restructuring. Now it is ten point seven six million so they save a little over six million and again they converted that to signing bonus but they still only have one point six million dollars. They don't know how to balance a checkbook taking lessons from Carolina. Panthers I guess it's bad and then you know just a preview..

We're going to try to keep to schedule a three times a week until we can't do that anymore until we just can't come up with stuff to talk about anymore you're gonNA have to bear with us because as you know off season can be very rural lane so we try to come up with interesting stuff. I can't remember if we did what we did off season last year. We were doing three podcasts. We we're we we didn't have no instant Casselton film review we didn't have. NFL News and Bucks News and predictions. I think we did a lot of predictions that we'll have to go back and see what our format was back. Then anyhow hang around listen to Bruce Arians give some good football knowledge about the team and until next Exxon after watching the film is really nothing different than than we talked about yesterday. You can all save your breath about asking me about Damis because there's not gonna be a decision says you may for a while. So that's that's a mute point right now and We had a good exit meeting with the guys with them. All individually here this afternoon and tomorrow and and talk about the future cases the processor these specific players but obviously record back you look at each week written they try to correct it so.

"But I will say this year and we've mentioned this before that people say we are an exciting exciting team the announcers every game or like man. This is a fun game to watch. And you've got a lot of personalities on the characters on you've got con. Su You've got Shaquille Barry Galvin. Take David Devon. Why Mike Evans Chris Godwin now though Perriman in there You Got Jameis Winston Justin Ryan Jensen. I love seeing him on the big screen. You got a lot of players that people that aren't haven't picked they football team yet can go guys need. I like that guy or whatever you know. Whatever reason for becoming a bug fan is I? Don't care as long as they become fan. We need to take over. The planet domination. Yeah that is on our agenda. Fill that stadium all make the broadcasters want to put us on every week on national. TV We'll see. How next season using goes I think we kind of caught some attention in this year? So and especially with David Winston. His whole contract negotiation being the thirtieth thirty quarterback. I mean that's kind of a big deal could be fun too especially when you can overcome. Then I'm going to say this. That was our biggest tissue with this team. I think it's plain and obvious anybody but Winstons thirty turnovers is what hurt this team. The most I can't think of anything else into the secondary was was really rough to start the season. Our special teams was rough. You know not much of a running game but when it comes down to you know David Swiss and turned up all our thirty times. That's it's just accepted. Now fumbles that. That's what caused us. That's what killed us. So he's got to change it. He's got to either that or throat sixty touchdowns next right but you know it. It was an anomaly this year. He's never thrown at many. He's ever thrown eighteen plus interceptions. We would've thrilled to death with an eighteen interceptions season season. And that's the highest ever thrown aside from this season. I do have a fact check last podcast. I had done the dolphins of line there. Her the sacks allowed had diminish as the season went on. That was wrong. It actually kind of dipped in the middle of the season and then went back up. So Molly's full shit. Ah Concerned just talking out of my ass. Well we only allowed one sack. James wants to mandate so there is that you're completely just mostly recorders all right. Let's get onto the drama. This week. That happened happened almost immediately after the season was over. Now that the season's over is start paying attention to the media. I now I really stopped listening into There's so much going on during the season and I think that everyone in the offseason grasping at any little thing in the journalists journalists to their job is to report on the team so even when there's nothing going on they're trying to come up with stuff to cover much like. We are in nonstop during the season. I've got the football games. I got press conferences got media reports coming from buccaneers com. It's really fantastic. I mean you get it from the Horse's versus mouth you don't really need the media the game analysis and keeping up. It just takes up so much Tom. Tom Follow just. Don't think that the media really has time into drums stuff. Up that purport assuredness stirred the pot. Sure did immediately. Immediately after the game. So Bruce Arians ends press conference was it after the game is after the game and somebody asked him about James Winston or what was the question. Do you remember the question. No No. It's on our last podcasts. At podcast what are the reasons why we put it on there and so that people can listen to it and we adjust the audio. Oh so that you can hear the reporter's questions a lot of times with the you cannot hear their questions we've asked a few years ago. Molly actually got them. I'm to push our put microphones with the reporters when they ask the questions that you could hear it but then they fallen out favor with that. They're not doing it this year. so how we adjust the volume so that you can hear you're the questions coming reporter that's at the end of the podcast if you want to hear what the The Post game press conference with the questions got our last podcast. Listen to the last twelve minutes. Long listened to the last fifteen minutes so now in any case somebody asks words areas about the quarterback situation and he said we can win in with a quarterback we could win with another one especially with the defense and Rick Stroud and gentlemen tweeted the quote quote as if we can win with this quarterback way can win was another quarterback and they did not include the part about the events and they inserted the word learn. If now I get it because if you're sitting in a press conference and you hear it once and you don't have the option to rewind in him in here what he said and sometimes those small word like if kind of get jumbled in the dialogue so I think what they do is they sit in the press conference in the press conference and they're tweeting these quotes and they just try to get them out as quick as they can and move onto the next. Because you'll see when the press conferences are going on They're all tweeting about these quotes. So I get and mistakes happen and sometimes it is hard to hear hear everything just on the first shot and then not being able to hear it again until later after we so I get that part but there's no bus. Pr Are team. Took exception to this quote that was transcribed and they particularly jumped on Jinnah which I thought you know. Maybe they should have said something to rick to not that I'm a fan of John Because of not so there's the original tweet in a had in tweeted and then she said I address this in a tweet earlier but it looks like it wasn't seen by some the word if should have been put into brackets in this week and it was corrected in the article. The if was initially done on because it was implied in his comment reasonable. It sounds but Scott Smith with the buccaneers organization and Karma. The tally took exception to this and and they were just Scott. Smith in particular was not going to let it go based on Denis's explanation sow his responses said. This Alicia goes to add a word. He didn't say to make an imply what you wanted. What you believe he meant to say and then agenda says this is one hundred percent what I understood the meaning of his His statement to be when I transcribe it. Then carver tally jumps. In and says this whole quote has gotten misconstrued today adding if completely lately changes the connotation misrepresents how it sounded in the media and JEN asset. Great you to know how to get a hold of me and it's not all slide you my number and we can have a thoughtful awful. The session twitter is the place for good night to which Scott Smith replied. I was replying to an inaccurate tweet. which is on twitter? Seems like a good place warrant eh which I was surprised because Scott Smith is ever the professional and very even Keel. He's definitely Nah The loudmouths in your face aggressive typers and not expecting them to be the first one into this flight at all and I are someone someone in the comments to correction said when Kellyanne Conway retires you can slide right in there which which Scott Re tweeted and the journalists said now would probably be a good time to long off. Twitter's alternative facts now. Oh and Richard Twitter the same thing and you know. I don't know how much they want to him. It would have been different if they would have corrected but they didn't they. Yeah they doubled down on it. I mean it did change the meaning of the statement. Here's how Aaron said it. He was like we. We can win with this one. We can win with another. It does matter but this defense. That's basically how he said but the way they do it the way they said it was he was like we away with is with any quarterback. You're right and then just left out a whole with this defense part. He just totally and it was picked up by the national media of course it was on. NFL Network dental lanes. ESPN so you know it just gets blasted out everywhere. The Bruce Arians says if we can win with Jay we with any piece of crap of comes off the field feel basically So you know. It's one of the reasons why we put the conference on the podcast here. So people can hear straight straight from Brazilians. They don't have to listen to it from the filter of the media to others while we adjusted the audio so you can hear who is asking the questions. They're asking them very very important and what they're asking and what type of stories that are writing me and molly can identify almost everybody by their voice. WHO's asking questions? There's a few down the jump in and ask questions. We're like who knows. But after a while you get to know. Rick Stroud or does listen to their podcasts. That helps to identify identify. Their voices have distinct voice especially our Kaufman the disdain and gentlemen you can identify hers because she heard questions like ten fifteen minutes on us as bad so I thought it was just as ingenuous. I thought it was journalist. Thought was unethical. You don't add a word in because you think that's what the meaning was implied. I did not get that from areas when I heard it at all. I don't know where she got. If from Iraq I mean he's a who did they both tweet the same thing out during the press conference. Here's REX. Twee wreck said coach. Bruce Arians when asked if this team could win with another quarterback quote with another quarterback. Oh Yeah if we win with this one we can definitely win with another one too and the if is not in brackets. None of it was that tweeted out during during the press conference. I think so. I don't know for sure if they both tweeted out there in the press conference and sounds like collusion to me or she saw one of them saw the other ones tweet and failed in the blanks that they missed any. I don't know trying to stir up crab or yeah the closer to come out today which we misquoting. Because they did. That's what it was misquote. Put it in brackets if you want to put it in brackets after. Everybody called him out for saying adding the word Yeah. You don't even have to say misquoted. Him because that has kind of a negative connotation but if you say I just want to clarify earlier quote and you can come out and say you know. I think you look a little better if you WANNA clarify why. I put an extra word in the beginning to change the meaning and took out the other half of the Senate into that change the meaning. I made it into what I wanted to be. which that was the criticism that they got a good enough to win with another quarterback? Oh Oh yeah when with us when we can we can definitely win with another to have a defense. That was the quote from a press. Rascon was wrong. I thought I had that press conference at the last broadcast. It was the post game press conference and it realized they were talking about the press conference for Monday..

"He wouldn't have got to Matt. Ryan would have been a big play. That was his last second season. It was it was just really neat seeing home. You know tell everybody. Hey this guy's uncovered and he's going out for pass. Mikey was saying the definitely knew what was going on with play. But then they didn't block him because because they figured they could get the ball out fast enough but he's so fast in running back turned his head around quicken up. And that's really not a gamble. You should be taken out no no and now a shack me okay. Biggest biggest thing about this game was the last drop by the Atlanta Falcons. That's what won them the game and and it was a large combination of we screwed up and they play very well on fourth and four and a fourth and four. This was a minute. Nineteen seconds left in in the fourth quarter. I think they were on their forty one. So in that area about midfield fourth floor. They had to make does it was no you know if we would have stopped them here. Game over we wrought by three. They were trying to get down the field scofield. They got a first down. Because M J Stewart was in the game and he gave the running the wide receiver going across the middle too much cushion. The guy was able to catch the ball. But he didn't catch the ball past the first down marker he had run from the first down marker he still right about three yards to go twenty. Four Iran store came in like a missile. I mean they got the guy he read the play the whole time so he comes running down from the safety position. He's got his is targeted by any missing totally lift and the guy. The guy didn't even try to run for the first down. He just kind of jumped forward for landed on his back to get the first down. I was like but I'm distort was aimed because funding got hurt. So that was another thing too even pointed this out. Did this for you molly in particular killer. Matt Ryan is one of the best quarterbacks at reading the field if you fall down you screw up in coverage Matt Ryan felt too. You're just how it is. When bunny got hurt and fell down Matt Ryan immediately recognize it and threw it to the guy he was covering and ended up getting twenty yards or so? But I find it because I talk about it all the time and it was a perfect for example in a budding. Pulls I don't know what again hamstring or knee or something. It was not content. Ankle might have been angry. It was not contrary. Yeah but as soon as he falls you see Matt Ryan Look over there and see it boop twenty hours leading back to that okay so they get the first down. Remember that play on the broadcast here when I was so demoralizing because yeah because we had him behind the Atlanta skirt that line to gain twenty four had made that tackle twenty twenty four made that tackler Stewart would have stuck to his Guy Stewart. Looked like he was kind of confused out there a lot you know. Didn't there's another play. I'll get to him back. He didn't he wasn't playing with the oath that the rest of the secondary place for sure and he looked confused but that was man coverage and he was supposed to follow his guy. He let the guy get out in front run album. Kinda jogged behind him. But anyhow so that was a mistake on our part there to get that four very demoralizing then forty thirty seven seconds left third and twelve thirty and twelve now we have been phenomenal on third and long season. A one point a few games ago and I haven't looked it up I I don't even know where to look it up but we haven't allowed a third and seven or more all year long. That's just amazing. So anyhow third twelve we got this right we got third third twelve. Oh yeah no problem. They tricked us. They snap the ball before we were ready. Our whole secondary worth's was talking to each other like facing each other. Even Thou Kong Soo was turned around. Talk into the secondary or linebackers. Everybody was not prepared for this play and as soon as Alec Amac put his hand on the ball snapped it and Ryan. It was a shotgun position so they weren't expecting them to snap the ball that quick any snapped at any. Their whole offense is moving. Our guys are still turned around looking looking at each other. You know it took him a second realize what was going on and this was the only time in the game where they had a wide open receiver and he shot across. It was Fourteen hardy he gets an open the middle and a catches a plas pass then plus yards after catch ended up with twenty one yards. Put them in field goal range. So that's two mistakes mistakes on our part on the last drive they had to to disasters. Mistakes took and things on their part to but we just wore not shocked our recalled difference. You could see they were all just like what you know those guys running past us and they were so confused. They didn't they they left open coverage and of course he leave a man over coverage met right. He's GonNa see the guy to throw it to him. You can't make mistakes with Matt Ryan then with thirty eight seconds left as might have been the next play eighty-three gauges his name. He he got a twelve yard reception that put on chip shot field goal range before they were in. You know kind of iffy Field Orange territory. But then he got a twelve yard research and put them in Ville go range guess whose fault that was. MDA Stewart Yup and Caulton Davis was furious I mean just flapping his hands and goes up to him was point. NATTY came up empty. I couldn't really tell from the Phil whose responsibility it was. There was three Buchan years on that side of the field covering in two guys and one of them got open. But I'm disturbed wasn't doing anything. He was kind of sitting there. You know look like they were. They were playing. Its own coverage. I WANNA say it was quarters but L. J. Stewart in another defender over on the side of the field lined up exactly in the same spot but the receiver that caught the ball. Eighty three gauge with clubs Stewart at Stewart was in the line of the path of the ball if he would have just moved over about three feet but he left it open and they called. The boy was called Davis furious for remember. During the off Season Nj Stewart the coaching staff was talking him up a Nick Repoen. The defensive backs coach was just go glowing about him. How he'd be the nickel or he'd be the starting safety and then come the regular season any the vaca? It was a very strange range. Ever see much all unite at all. I mean he hasn't been starting. He comes in occasionally but I think then he just got out played by these rookies. And you can't really blame the coaching staff. He was not playing with energy out there. He's actually kind of looked like it. Didn't want to be out there. Even even when Carlton Davis went over and started yelling adding he just turned around and walked away. He wasn't like dialogue and with him or trying to communicate or anything you know maybe that attitude attitude is a holdover from Vernon Harker could be maybe burn Hargreaves Zorin now for the big one the interception overtime James Wisden and one hundred percent James. Wednesday's fall eight. I thought it was an hour out that he threw but it wasn't it was more of a hitch Through the Cameron break came and bright went out about six yards and then turned around and sat waiting for wisdom. The phone the ball wisden's should not have thrown the ball linebacker. The linebacker didn't hardly move. move the whole play just stood. There said he clearly knew what was HAP- He. He was a few feet away from camera and break just standing there. And when he I saw James Winston throw the ball he just walked right in front of camera bright. Grab it rained it. In for a touchdown it came a break. Mike could've moved over little bit. Shot blocked a guy from getting the ball or whatever it James. Winston should've thrown at sooner than he did too. We waited a little bit longer than he should have but he locked in on Cayman Brac. That whole time at look anywhere else do that ball one. The easiest picks in the world for that linebacker all you do is take two two steps and he was right there and he just ran it right into the end zone so I can see why Bruce Arians was furious about that one. I thought it was more of an out route and the the guy had undercut the route but it was a hit and the guy I mean the guy undercut the route. But it wasn't like anything specially did. It is part you know he was just like. Oh Hey they throw it right there. I'm just going to step in front of him. So definitely Jameis Winston fault. Looking at this game You know I said I said at the after the game of the instant reaction. We were definitely the better team. I think we were about the same team. I think I've been the case for years. Freeman was running all all over top of us not too many big guard Ron's but you know he was getting six eight twelve yards straight up the middle. We haven't had that all year. Derrick Henry did it but that that was due to a lot of holding on their offensive line now he was running. Our DEVANTE didn't get any more yards than anyone else ever does. Sound like he had like one hundred yard game. I'm against But he was getting these up middle. Nobody's been able to run up. Give mill on us and he was getting on quite frequently. You know a lot of that had to do with the rotation. We were putting in a lot of times. The guys weren't the run stoppers and Guys were slipping and falling down. Long Lot of missed tackles in his game fell unlike us. Yeah it was so this is a hard one if you say. Did we win it. Did we lose it. Did we beat ourselves. Did we beat them to the refs gift. There was a play where Matt Matt run through intentional grounding that it call it and we feel on. Oh I know the gun shop at about that. I mean we James Whisker call during the game. Matt Ryan didn't surprise But this is a really tough one because they played well you know. It wasn't like they were out there screwing up and not holding in. We'd lost the game on that last and it was defense lost at fours and that lasts drive. It should never come to over to not have come overtone exactly and it was a long drive that they got roku quickly and it was mainly because we screwed up and we know Matt Ryan can do that more acceptable and the You know so is it. Did we beat ourselves. And that's what I'd have to go with here. We beat ourselves. We may dumb dumb decisions. Don't big mistakes wchs that cost us. You Know Matt Ryan will capitalize. This team will capitalize on your mistakes. We made mistakes that overtime. Throw by DMC Winston at just a bad decision Capitalized on it. You know snap the ball early. The capitalized on that mistake got twenty seven yard. Play out of it. We fall down in coverage that capitalized on him MJ Stewart doesn't cover his man. Good enough we miss a tackle that capitalized saying so it was it we ourselves in the foot. They capitalized on it. So it's hard not to say that we'd lose it. Did they win it that we you know that I'm just GONNA call it a wash fifty fifty. Yeah we are defensive. Line is head and shoulders order above Thurs and they're not gonNA think any pressure on James Western Harlot all so we should just on that. We should have one day. But you know our kicker Mishima's field goals James James Making some stupid decisions breakdowns in on the defense but that one mellon which I caught us off guard I was like oh I don't know if it was masterful or if it I was just I wanted to throttle our defense but at the same time on Mike. Hey they all fell for that. You know what it sue Ford Sue. You know he's a football studious. Yeah high very high football. IQ and he wasn't prepared. He was caught off guard by that one..

"Monday is the following Wean Dang. Oh I'll see how that goes no. I don't think we have anything absolutely not but especially in the NFC south we'll see if Atlanta can hold onto their head. Coach heard that Mike McCarthy interviewed for the Carolina Panthers head coach John. Please let him Newton back all my gosh. Yes as we found out from Green Bay after he left. Iran was running the show there and if he comes Carolina Cam Newton is certainly not equipped to run a team. Like that like Aaron Rodgers is well at at least with Cam. Newton's leadership the whole team will have a good style or at least style on over the good and you know funky hair who get all that straight now. Now that'd be his leadership the important things in football that's important hell got the all twenty two film Review Don for Houston Texas game. It was very interesting very interesting interesting but surprisingly I got the video up on Youtube and I was actually surprised this funny when I do these things. I have no idea how long they're going to be because after hours and hours and hours I was watching it. I can't remember how video clips Don and everything so it was not until up. Start putting together. That could see how long it is and this is one of the shorter ones I've done but it was one of the more interesting games is to watch so that was very strange. If there was a couple of video clips at I I know I did. But they ended up not being in the video. I don't know what happened to him so you know I was doing this. We we had family over house will people so you can hear all the background all kinds of stuff a tremendous trying to do all day yesterday to. He's a Christmas Eve couldn't do it. Yeah we had people all in here just making all kinds of noise and some of the family is read aloud anyhow but so I did said Tuesday got most of it done in finished it up today and I was really surprised with a Thursday. I didn't do anything yesterday during Christmas but I was really surprised. And how little how few clipped Hijab said it was very interesting and then I was missing a couple of clips disappeared. So I'll talk about those clips here in just a second. All right do you remember what our summary was. Instant cast go ahead. Lay it out there with what we see what we see. The rats were horrible and it was a game that we lost next Houston. Texans didn't necessarily win that game. We just Kinda gave it away after watching all twenty two. I'll tell you this. The rest were actually worse than we default. If you can believe that. I'm not surprised this is. This is a quick summary of everything the the refs were absolutely elite. Trash absolutely trash. I think I can't remember which game it was awhile back but I think we had a really bad ref game. I WANNA say it was New Orleans. Seattle maybe Acura but I think we had quite a few screw ups by the wrath. I want to say nine or fifty something like Dan of anyway anyhow in this one account twelve. Wow Yeah. That's a lot that's a lot and we'll go over them in detail here. In a moment the Texans played with more energy than we he did how interesting so that was kind of like the New Orleans Games. Yes yes. We're very flat. Especially the second game. Our defense played well. Well we know that the offensive line played well but they just didn't play with oath that they they Gripe Tech James. I mean the few snacks acts they got those were Jameson Fault for scrambling around I think three are it was they. Were not pressuring him. In our offense landed a great job with dominance myth just just basically totally shutdown merciless without a lot of effort. I think Mercilus got buying twice now only once and I could take an might have been twice but neither one of them really affected the play. Jensen played really well. There was some good blocking but but generally I mean we shut their defensive line down and they did a lot of blitz up there number forty thirty one Zach Cunningham back taxes. He's good so as their nose. Tackle Jira DJ reader number ninety eight These are two guys. We did not pick up long. When we watched watched some of the Texans Games matter of fact the people we thought might would be good at? Actually we were totally wrong about their defense of their cornerbacks star. Receivers like Glue Jameis Jameis Winston had very few open receivers almost every pass. He threw a tight window. That's crazy it explains a lot Li- through so many interceptions because I mean he was just throwing no matter if they were covered or not because they were always come basically. That's interesting because they're ranked so low as far as passing defense. It makes you wonder. I wonder if the game plan wasn't good. If they stepped up their play if our receivers you know because we had our number one number two were out if our receivers just couldn't get space. I don't know but they were. They stopped doing like glue. It kind of looks like our secondary our secondary played very well are defensible. Played very well. We pressured to Shawn Watson quite what a bit. Not as much as I would like to see of course but he is hard to press her that because he's a mobile quarterback he can usually escape and that is his number. One thing is a mobile quarterback recommend. We really kept him in. Check Him Deandre Hopkins. He's a mobile quarterback and he does just like Jameis Winston. Sometimes he would scramble for no reason and he would get you know run into Zack's and he was missing guys open downfield not say it reminded me almost exactly of Jameis Winston except to watch them has a little bit more grace. He doesn't look liking thinking newborn draft when he's running around got a little bit more speed to him. The Take David played very well. I would say he was the best player on the field. You know this is this is gonNA sound really really strange our worst unit and I think this is what hurt us the most was special teams. Now we were talking about. I was like why are they. They haven't done back their return punts kickoffs and then they did and he just wasn't getting anywhere and nobody was able to get anywhere. We hardly any yard. It wasn't until it blockers. We had an appointed this out in the video. Fifty one mentor thirty. Four Adams thirty-seven Wilkins and twenty four Stewart. Were all guilty of not blocking a single person on punts and kickoffs sometimes even almost every punt and kickoff. They were just guys not blocking anybody where they within our were they Brian. I wouldn't say they weren't trying to just like they have asked it. I wouldn't even say they weren't given effort. They were just not executing well. Yes let's let's. Let's say that there was one kickoff right up scored a field goal in the first quarter. I think it was mazzy. Would want to mentor. I'll put it on the video. A two of them on the right side aligned Argh is one of them was mentor. Remember that just let three guys run right past them and the returner just gets let's clobber bio is very strange. They didn't block a single person. There was actually two points where we had two guys on the governor of Kevin Minter and Adams one time we had two guys front blocking one guy that that one guy for the Texans. Just rain right between Minter atoms they didn't put latently handling. He just ran right between rain down. The field made the tackle who's got caught. Bought another play another pont. I want to say it was Mazzy Wilkins and mentor. This time. The guy goes around him. You know it was two guys on two guys on Goner. He runs around them. They turn around and start chasing him and another Houston Texan Texan. Guys comes running up right behind them and third looking at the guy that ran past them and the guy that is behind them ends up making a tackle. I mean they were just turned around and blocked. The Guy can't block guy in the back. Why even care? If he's running past you just turn around the block somebody else but he had the guy was running right behind them. Them and then just veered left. Quick made the tackle so our special teams unit has got to step up. There was one where Ryan Smith is usually are special teams guy guy. He did not a whole lot in this game. I want to say that Houston special teams. They pay a lot of attention to their special teams. We don't seem to Brian. Smith twenty nine. I was running down the sideline as a gunner is blocking and the guy. He was blocking number thirty three grabs him and pulls into the ground right in front Aref right. This is one of the twelve that I'm GonNa talk about here in a minute. And thirty three goes and he ends up making the tackle and you see Ryan Smith Walk Up to him and stick his finger anger in his face. The very next punt thirty three is running down the Field Ryan Smith runs over two men. Grabbing by the Jersey inches yanks him straight meeting face as plant into the ground and that no. That's another one of the twelve so he got his revenge. Our special teams use unit. Did Not play okay well and it really was a difference in the game it because this was a very close game this was an inches matter game right behind Ville. I'm going to put James Winston. He did really good with you. Know making some very difficult passes but he was scrambling out of the pocket too much when he didn't need to like I said our offensive line did a great job giving him clean. Pocket's hold on pressure on anybody just seem to have those happy feet this game and he doesn't seem to affect him when he has the happy mm seems like the Games where he's had a poor performance. He's been very flighty like sat. Yeah you get skittish but he did that too much and he made poor decisions decisions one of the decisions he made. What did I? I'm not really Nakajima's for this kid. Because like I said I mean these cornerbacks glued receivers and William James was did did a great job and we were within three. I mean it's not like we got stomped and despite the four interceptions we had the chance to win it right. Which is what I'm getting to next? We got the ball with. I think it was twenty. Six twenty nine seconds left in the fourth quarter. We were down on our goal line. We had the drive all. We need with a field field goal so we had to drive. Sixty yards will say in twenty nine seconds James Hikes..

"Their hands and and really happy for Carlton. Get the Mike Alvis back in. That was a fifty fifty outdoor. It'd be time to Calvin Ridley. And he took it away from him call. You know he's playing man coverage press pretty good at it little Hansie as you mentioned that he was a little bit more. Yeah we we had a nice mix this ball game and has off coverage is getting better as they're both a little bit better off coverage so they're not up there every time you know This their strength is because they have that length is get up there and get on people a little bit to be able to play off coverage really helps holly how it drives you guys. They even if it was quarters up there preston playing claim basically all alone by themselves. Commentators said something. I don't know how accurate that's what I want to ask you. That is coaching staff. You guys spent. I don't know if you say extra time or more specific time on gain planning for what Atlanta has done successfully the last two weeks Do you credit in your coaching staff. Did you guys. If you'd watched the previous games it was a totally different defense It was all manned man press bear defense This was more traditional zone. Cover two man mixed in and out you know So they changed three weeks ago after their little coaching change inch and I thought our guys did a heck job having a plan for both losing. Those adjustments not only throughout the year but in halftime rhyming can talk about the word. We'll by Joss where the judgment. What really goes ended? I during a game or even go into each while. You're going to sit. You're going to see new. Things might be formation. mation might be motions so you adjusted halftime defensively offensively. It was where they were putting a safety down week and not strong and we had to rearrange how we're blocking things and it's the beauty of having Chris Guy when we take a take the linebacker l. at the tackle block to safety any blocked him every any time and So the running game really got going. It was a shame that we we had a false start because I think Roggio my ninety seven on that one he was out and into the second half was only around and in terms of just establishing separation. It goes from nine point. Game at the Hampton. How big was just to play on a huge? I mean it's exactly that get get the two scores. Get them out of the running game. And let's tee off and the mix I think we had one chunk in there but You know the mixture of the Ron and is like I said the tight ends that handful this week block and three hundred pound lineman but and we made those adjustments at half time and I thought the coaches did a hell of a job of getting those runs is going to give us is always going to be on a quarterback. This excludable right. I mean that's just the game all the time look into trump's point.

"That was mine and that guy just and he ended up placing last in the tournament and everybody was amazed ever like how did he plays last and he beats you twice. I had been beaten by anybody like six years so it was very strange. But that's when I realized that sometimes some people just have your number whether they realize if you're not and I think with Donovan Smith That's how it is with Adrian clayborn. He just hated Dom Smith just can't handle Adrian clayborn he just pushing back knocked him out of the way he. I think it might be because they're about the same size and I don't know but he just seems to have Donald Smith Number Dom Smith didn't let what to do a whole lot but it was interesting you saw. Donald Smith struggled mightily with him more than he does with anybody else. Ryan Smith number. Twenty nine gotta get Kudos out to every podcast. I think because that guy is just a beast or special teams. He's changed our special teams. You remember before he came back from suspension are special teams. Suck we guys were. We're getting you know. Fifteen twenty yards punt on us. And everything are Vernon Hargraves loafing. But since Ron Smith has come back our special teams has been on point. I mean he's down there. He's the first one down on any punt or kickoff every single time and he likes to hit. Yeah yeah he ain't scared contact for sure so we you gotta give rides. Smith is shout out like I said the defensive lines is killed especially in the fourth quarter. They were all over. They were all over ransom. I mean Matt Ryan I think everybody got in on it. Nacho Joe We actually got to see a seventy nine. Patrick O'Connor Ninety six Sam Ocho were out there for quite a few core. Yeah there was that one matt match shop came in. No I think they started coming out in about the third quarter towards in the third quarter match. I didn't come in until the last drive. With the Falcons in the fourth quarter but he had in the fourth quarter are defensible. Tear them up. So that's about it for the film review like. I said there wasn't a whole lot there that wasn't on the broadcast. If you watch the youtube video you'll see some interesting. Things was one Ryan Jensen. I think it was ninety seven. Grady Jarrett Gregg. Jarrett was a real handful info for our whole line. I got very underrated. Defensive Tackle Alley more grady. Jarrett were going at it and Jensen comes in and hits them from the side and they fall down. Now I don't know what dry jets was still. But he ended up doing a head stand completely vertical with his feet sticking straight up in the air. I thanks keg. Stay Grady Jerry and Alvar pet. It was hilarious actually. Did a screen shot of it. Oh they're fullback number forty kief his last name can't remember last fullbacks left in the league he got into it with J. p. p. blocking him and he got a little too aggressive with JP JP didn't take too kindly to that just tossed into the ground man violently and it stood over top of him. Like you know things. Yeah and I got to get that sound bite from booger. Though there. When he was in America started around the block? Good tight defensive ends with tight ends. Oh my gosh. I'm honesty Diane Monday nights so the Baltimore game where they destroy. Who did they play kidding? Remember such an ASS whooping is ban Baltimore's been destroying everybody. They ran up the score like forty. I can't believe I can't remember which had quite a few of that in the video too and I kept quoting buggers could get down by saga. Put it in the teams. Do you just like I mean. Why would you put a tight end? Luke Stocker on She Gilbert Barrett or. We've done it before it with a grain. A block in we do it all the time. And it's insane interesting thing. I got to look at this. I was like you now. It just seemed like we've Like I said we're we're a good football team especially offensively. We're good football team so I looked it up and we have lead in nine. Eleven Games. James I've had the Leeann we've had the lead in nine of eleven gave the only games we didn't hold. The lead was week six against the Panthers Week. Eleven against the saints. That's pretty impressive. Yeah you know the four hundred seventeen too bad. We can't keep a lean man that happen quite a few games two where we gave me and I looked at the time of possession. Listen to we. We lead in time of possession in six of the Games in five of the Games. We didn't lead time of possession of the five games that we did not lead in time of possession. We lost borough in the six games that we did lead in time of possession. We only lost three so we have a much better chance of winning when we lead the tunnel possession. Yeah so that's about about it for the twenty to anything. The is the rams played Monday. Wake up to in the morning. Wake me up. It's three three well. Tomorrow's Thanksgiving happy Thanksgiving. Everybody enjoy your most likely. Everybody has two days off most people a a lot of people. A lot of people do enjoy your family gifts. Thanks Three Games tomorrow. Wolf and New Orleans. Play Portland five division games in a row. This'll be the fourth one. So they had planned panther insane. It's Kamajors Panthers want revenge on them. Yeah and how it goes tomorrow with Atlanta losing US since we can. Then you know they've just been trounce seen the other two teams in the division. Are we GONNA do a Friday punking. Yeah probably might be Friday morning. Cook Brodie Morton. Now there is. It's hard to do at Thursday cooking on him and drinking so in that order all right. Well that's going to wrap it up for us us if you want to listen to Bruce Arians Monday press conference stay tuned to after the podcast. Here it'll play. Do you have one more thing and addendum. Oh I got some lose to okay. So we're not done it Ramon. Someone had commented on our instant reaction. I think it was rarely even who likes EXTA leave comments which we always appreciate an thought. We should cut devon white a little bit of slack and I agree with him when he said was that not Devon's not gonna get any better with pass coverage if he's not on the field completely agree we advocating benching and we're saying he needs to improve aspect of. I think I did see that at the first of the year I was saying maybe he needs to sit for awhile. Winters Mentor as yeah. Well I mean we're asking for these matters either. Rookie rookies are ban. Almost all the time I learned that from Ian Beckles who lean backwards is really high on this team. They really listen to him as I just assume that he was going to be after the Lee streak he was going to be negative. He's he's he's really high on him so rarely even thanks for the comment. Yes because you're in you are correct. I'd I'd I do believe and you know I say stuff on his podcast. Sometimes I blow it out of proportion at the game of inches and you know step here step. There means a lot and so I'll make it sound like players are worse than they are. We are better than they are. Sometimes but I'm not advocating for Devon white to be benched up. I think you're correct you know. He's he's only gonNA get better by get out there playing royal exactly and the other players on the defense needs to step up if you now that he is a liability in I think in watching the twenty two you know that I I play. They had it was like a fifty some yarder to tight end. I can't remember the guy's name. It went straight up obtain graduate and Graham. Yes and watch it on all twenty two. I couldn't for the life of me. Tell me tell whose responsibility in love I said I think in the incident camps that it was the inside linebackers Devon Whites Responsibility He. He should've gone with him. They were playing former cover to shell. I don't know if it was supposed to be a Tampa to linebacker. Drops back further In the video so I said that was incorrect and blaming it on Devon white but then re watching it you can see Levante. David Devon Wider John Back and forth after the play basically basically it looks to me like they were trying to figure out which one of them screwed up. That's pretty sure. It was devon white casting now but also puts Toronto veterans to to straighten and stuff about so that could have been with. That was or could have been definitely going well Monte. You're supposed to be doing that. Well you can see them talking walk into each other before the play as to where they were supposed to be who was covering hill and the voluntary mug like he Went covered the running back leaving the tight end to Devin y than just got confused with the message. They're just kind of drop back a little bit. He didn't go all the way back and definitely didn't follow the tide am. I don't know I don't know whose fault it was but I I would. I would have to say it was once so my whole point behind all of that is that we can't blame the secondary totally for all these yards is being given the no it doesn't white gives up quite a bit yardage he he actually gives up more than his fair share. You know probably about thirty percent of the arts given up on pass plays can be attributed. It'd just to Devon whites and it makes sense to because if you're an opposing quarterback rookie. We're asking them to do a lot whole lot. He's got the Mike Tail. Yeah yeah he's he's he's one in charge of getting play calling and everybody in position and a lot of times. He doesn't even know where he's supposed to be all right. What you got for knees ace? Still Look in the Gregg Allman had a pretty interesting stat out the other day people were talking about Winston's interceptions and all that you know the cost of the Games you know when when and does according to Gregg Allman when James Winston has zero interceptions and turnovers. The buccaneers are still twelve and fourteen. Wow so his turnovers aren't the necessarily the reason why we've been losing. It's an interesting measure. Yeah well you know that's the thing about stance you can make them say what everyone to so I'm not a big fan of stats a good tool but Definitely not the end all be all. Chris was named the NFC offensive player of the week and a career. High one hundred eighty four yards and two touchdowns and our win against Atlanta. He dessert that one is our. We've had a lot of honors and awards this year. Man I'll tell you what the the pro bowl balloting is going to be interesting because we got a lot of guys that deserve to be in the pro bowl. It is amazing. How much Asia talent we have on this team? I mean elite level players Shaq Barrett via NASA JP. That's just a Eh La Fontaine. David we're one of my at five now. Mike Evans Chris Godwin at seven right there. I would have thrown that guy in there. If he went and miss those in his. Somebody pointed out that he has a better record. Statistically from fifty yards and beyond then he does breath. Kick an extra. You know and I thought about that strategically if you WANNA take pressure off your offense or your quarterback doc when you bring in a kicker that can just boot it so then it's not a big deal get it that you know if you can't get to the end zone better chance Um At least putting points on the board if you have somebody that can make it from fifty seven yards fifty four yards. It was funny. He you know he missed those three extra points. which what thirty five have your kicks now or something? And then he made like a thirty five yard field goal was so strange. Like how do you miss extra points and then make the field goal. Yeah but I'd rather him mis extra points and make feels yeah. That's it for me news. I'm sure there's some other stuff we missed. I wasn't in the news mode today in the videos. All right so we're gonNA try this again. That's doing for us. If you want to listen to the diverse area the press conference stick around is going to be answered. PODCAST here till next time tailbacks not a lot to add. Thought it was best complete team game yesterday. other other than the extra points And that's so easily fix a marriage just a little late on his often any hurries up. And then that's when you hit that big Hook So he fixed it on the field goal The block was just really a great. Get off on the guy. He's still headed on one to six. I think so We it can do a better job on the edge but boy Allen made a hell of a play running a guy down so But our coverage and pressure you're went hand in hand defensively..

"I like to see that end around. They had Wisconsin Miller. Yeah he lost two yards on it. Yeah they sniffed out but it was different. I like the UN. That Scotty Miller if he gets an open space I'm anxious to see him getting open open space because he's waiting for fast little do now. I put another firsthand. James has played really really well except for that one jumped pass. Yeah now let's take off right. Yes and it's so funny because Matt Ryan did the same exact thing later. That's the past that the Lante David dropped Matt Ryan jumped jumped up in the air and tried to to dump it off to die right in the middle. And the vaunted David grabbed it and started running with it before he had secure had it secured but Yeah famous was playing really well actually had a note here in the third quarter and then after that he started eating a little bit but he he had a really good game. The one play this is is the play that I think changed the game. Now Quinn the head coach for Atlanta Falcons and Bruce Arians both pointed to the Chris. God Lin Seventy one yard touchdown play as the play that changed the game. Yeah which is funny because right after that. The next offensive Dr Jameson other pick. Yes on that play. It is so funny on that play. Where he Chris Godwin and that was probably the worst person he could've thrown to there was two guys? CRISCO remember Mike Williams Mike Evans and restart pair of both open on the side on either side. Yeah I would look at that and I was like this is something I would really complain about. If Godwin would can't wasn't a seventy one year which is really hard to complain about. Not In seventy one yard touchdown and it was the extra effort by Chris Godwin. That really made that play which it's been so long since we've had a receiver that run after catch. Yeah and he was really tackled job and stayed on his feet and rain touchdown but to me that was not the tipping point of the game. Like you said even after that James wisdom to interception still seem that you know that the game was closed between us it. It wasn't until we were backed up on our one half or eight yard. We were close to our ends on. This was a three thirty one of the second quarter matter of fact when I was doing the game name the video for this I skipped over this play. I was going to put it in and I was like ads. Good thinking on it last night I was like I really need to put this play in there because it kind of solidifies. Everything I talk about James Winston. It was that a Shard pyramid past one pass. He caught and fell out of bounds. Forty four the yard passed me. That was the tipping point. Because here was we were backed up on our end zone. It was third down third seven. We're backed up on our eight. A third and and seven and Jameis Winston scrambles out of pocket. You didn't really need to. But he kept a shoulders downfield. He was squared up and he kept his feet beat set. He had his base so he was able to see if anybody was open as he was scrambling really perfect. Everything not talk about James Winston needs to be doing better and sure enough. He He solved pyramid was wide open. Nobody even close to him and he threw the ball and paramount. Of course caught it. If I don't know why pyramid turned around like he did to catch it and it fell down. That would have been touchdown John if he would've just caught it over his shoulder. No nobody near him and that you know to me. That's the one that changed the game because I think it really gave James Wisdom Competence you know. It really sparked a team up because we got out of a third long situation we got off of our ends out and what pointing out all year is that usually Selena Games. We'd lose it's because our opponents are able to score on these long drives and we haven't been for a long time the longest drive. We had scored. John was seventy five yards. Well this one you know was a like we started off on the ninth. Yeah but it was like a ninety eight yard adult member but it got us out of the end zone and and it moved from that point on we pretty much dominated the game. I think the only play the hand after that was blocked an extra point which that was came braids fault by the way the extra point. Seven seven fifty three and a third quarter. Winston does not see a wide open Mike Evans on a third and two he throws an incomplete pass. Covered Cameron Great. This was we were on our own. Nineteen ended up putting after this. But Yeah Mike Evans was wide open yet. That's what I'm saying. The first half of the Game Winston played really well Then in the third third quarter towards the game he started doing some of the stuff. I don't like you know miss an open not seeing open receivers now seeing the field scrambling a little bit when he didn't need to Bubba. And and then the defense had or get second-half balances out defense stepped up and filled in those holes and JP really showed up in the second half. I think the energized by the other guys. He is usually one of the ones with the most energy and we saw last year when the team was losing that last game he's done a lot of guys. Don't keep it rea- and he hates losing so that's got to be a little draining the emotional or the energy the source of the defense and not have anybody step up say then he really feeds off of it and it was a good team effort to get the energy up. Well well if he's the one who's done it he's done a really good job because honestly he looks like the least energetic want he did have some really good players. But that's one thing you brought that up. I'm glad you did the bugs here. We are sitting in four eight now. Point seven hundred seventy now yes foreign seven point seven and we looked like a team. That's still trying to get in the playoffs. None of these guys are quitting. Nobody's phoned it in. I mean they're playing hard and you you gotta look respect it absolutely. I'm not a big Fan of teams trying to tank for draft picks. No now kind of pisses me off that what you know you know how you feel when the bucks lose the rest of the week you Kinda just Blah you know and especially that that Sunday you just go and go to sleep so you know. It's not a good feeling. I don't. I don't want that feeling if you know what I want to win. Every week I wanted to be entertaining amy games with somebody else brought that up. I'll post on Reddit. They were talking about. It was a eagles fan or somebody said that we should be thankful for James because he's very entertaining Yup and it's over lining guys very entertaining. Sometimes he makes you wanNA pull your hair for Donald Smith had a rough day. It wasn't bad it wasn't like Donald Donovan Smith Old. But it was Adrian clayborn. He's got hatred yet. Daydream Claiborne. Got His number in. It just seems like a ton of Smith and I'm notices throughout the years. You know documents down a hard time with Adrian clayborn. That's so funny. They didn't really put Adrian clayborn on Smith that much but when they did man he had a hard tom with him kept them. There wasn't really smart on their part. I always like Adrian. Clayborn was not happy to see him go thought he was a good player. He's just got a motor. You know he doesn't quit that's for sure and he's not you know elite but I think he's certainly above average. Yes right. Yeah so solid. He's going to get the job done. That's sure he doesn't make a whole lot of mistakes But there's I don't know what it is but Donald Smith just has a hard time with Adrian clayborn. I used to play racquetball. Competitively early and when I was about fifteen years old I was playing in the adult leagues because I got to an advanced level where I couldn't nobody my my age was a competitive enough so I ended up having joined the adult leagues. I didn't lose a match for six years. I was really dominant in in the sport and nobody could. Just there was just no competition for me really. I mean I was plan guys much older than me too but I was just fast and in agile elegance toughen. You know anything about racquetball to bury fast for I ended up playing in this tournament. One time and I played this guy. This is is going to the Toll Donald Smith and usually there's there's no matter how good you are. There's always somebody out there that can be absolutely like the New York giants and the Patriots twice in the Super Bowl time whenever expect the giants to have the Patriots number right slice. The giants have basically a bumbling stumbling and team and then they go in there and beat the Patriots twice. This is what they just got the something about him. I think it was Tom. COBB wasn't it head coach. Yeah something about so the the same thing happened with me and this is where I learned that lesson. You know I mean I was just in this tournament I was just dominate and everybody was nothing Nothing unusual but then there was. There's one guy and we were playing like a tournament where he ended up playing everybody twice and you know it was kind of weird bracket system. Yeah so I ended up plane got twice and the first time I played him I found out he hadn't been playing for like Leslie Year and You know I didn't really think nothing about and I was like. Oh this would be pretty easy and he and I was. I was furious why because I had a huge ego at the time and stuff and I was furious at the they got around to it but I was furious after that and I was like that was luck it was pure. You're lucky he just happened to you. Know and what he did was he you know like I said I played really fast. You know slammed I kept the ball low and everything was about keeping it close to the walls. What else good stuff in this guy would take my serves or techma rebounds or whatever and he would just lob it just lob it up to the ceiling and it wouldn't do this high arken basically he slowed the game down? He didn't know what he was doing. You know I mean. He didn't plan this but I couldn't play that away. It just frustrated the hell out of me so the next time the moment I was like okay. This got me last time but I know I know how to be evanger honor. Yeah no he beat me he beat me again. I just couldn't play that I couldn't slow down and that's what I realize I was like well. Everybody's got their Achilles heel in..

McKinley defensive in he's got a shoulder injury and he hasn't practiced all week. And then Adrian. Clayborn has a groin injury. He didn't practice Wednesday but returned Thursday in L. Limited capacity no Adrian. Clayborn was with the Falcons again still defendants but yeah I think he went to New England and then came back to the Falcons knows. They're starting now. I don't think he's behind. Tucker's McKinley on injuring report. This falcons team. It's been a tale of two teams really going into their bye week. They they were one in seven. I think they allowed thirty. One points three points a game and they had a total of seven sacks in eight games and and only four takeaways after the bye week when they made some coaching changes. Dan Relinquish play calling duties on the defense. It's a really weird configuration. That we've talked about before on the podcast but linebackers coach Jeff. Overwork suck over first. And second down. playcalling on the defense and then Raheem Morris who. He's still listed on the website as an assistant head coach slash passing game coordinator slash wide receivers coach. But he's been moved to secondary coach southern need update their website. He's just calling plays on third down they're down and in two minutes situations. It is really weird and you would think as we've experienced with the buccaneers that when when he get too many cooks in the kitchen. Maybe there's a little bit of confusion but it's worked out of their way for the Falcons. It seems to be really working out for them because they I made this change and came back from the by their to an hour after the bye. They beat the absolute shit out of the saints and the the panthers the panthers. It wasn't even close. It was bad the saints the score was twenty six to nine and a reminder finder. That was the game where drew brees did not score. Touch challenge was the first time he had done that in the Dome and then in the Panthers the score was twenty nine to the three so held them to no touchdowns Kyle Allen threw four interceptions. He had a rating of forty seven and a half he he had thirty one completions fifty total throws had three hundred twenty five yards in foreigners options and he got sacked five times. I was looking at his comparison to Jameis Winston and he's got ten touchdowns and nine interceptions which is actually worse than what Jama's has got he's got no it's not worth James's got nineteen touchdowns. Eighteen interceptors is almost as bad so about the same about the same and of course Alan one is only started five games six games games. Yeah he's not playing that great. Well he's playing all right. I guess not against the Falcons now now does not jump makes worse than any other this season. Slender Games like this. Where we have the potential to get that crap crap knocked out of us let's this crazy scheduling? The Falcons played the saints then Carolina. Then they play us then they play. Play the saints again. And then Carolina against they have a five game good vision streak right. In the middle of the season they went to the saints and to Carolina Carolina. There are home with us. And then the saints come to Leeann and Carolina all come to Atlanta a heck of a time for them to get on a roll I now. They've also had some shakeup in the defense besides just the coaching change. They've been shifting guys all around now. Vicar Beasley it was at the start of the season. Just playing at one spot on the defensive line but now they're starting to move him around which we talked about this with the saints preview. A how how. The Falcons Defensive Line just caused a lot of chaos moving around and so the Beasley was part of that. Then they've had some injuries desmond. TRAUMAS found out so they had a rookie. Kendall Sheffield playing for him now. That came back which he came back during the Carolina game. Sheffield move to nickelback. And then they had demonte Qazi. He was playing nickel. They have him back at free safety. Because they've lost two defensive backs to injured reserve. Kiana Neil and James Cyprian so they with injuries. They tried to move move guys around and didn't have as much success so some of the guys came back and they were able to reconfigure it so they had a really good game against Kyle Ellen picking him aw four times they hadn't had an interception in seven games and they haven't had a turnover in four games before the Carolina game they still. I'll have a minus eight turnover differential. Which is twenty seventh in the League? The box have a minus ten. So we're twenty ninth in the League so about evenly matched their there. That's something that's GonNa Change in only like Brazilian said turnovers. Come in bunches you know. And the Atlanta Falcons are a perfect example. You know they got four games dame's or however many games without turn over all of a sudden they get what seven or eight in two games and we saw that last year with the buccaneers. We had a drought of few games. And then I think the Carolina game where Andrew Adams got three and our guys are getting real close monroe close the the bunting. He almost had a beautiful interception last week. A great play on the wall. So you know it's common and Matt Ryan will throw some interceptions. He's in that had dirt cutter offense offense. The their philosophy is just rent that his rivet spin he came up with Matt Ryan. You know our our a secondary has to be on point. If you fall down slip get confused Coverage Matt Ryan is going to make pay for doubt. He's probably the best in the business at that. Like I say today. It doesn't appear to me like he goes through progression so much as it is. He looks for opportunities on the defense screwing up and believe it or not. We don't have a lot a lot of that which brings me to another point address. The second a lot of flack Milan podcasts. For saying that are secondary played. Well I'm not saying they played great Yeah definitely see the potential there for them to play but what I'm saying is that they can't be solely blamed for the all the passing yards. Were giving up a large part of that falls on land because the quarterback calculations about thirty percent of the passing yardage is on the linebackers in particular. Kevin admits error from first couple of weeks when Devon White was out and now Devon White. And it's not really a duck putting down the linebackers. I mean. They're having to go against some crazy. Good a receivers. I think definitely just hasn't caught up to the speed of the game yet and the the scheme you know understanding what they're supposed to do it does it. Seems like they get really confused a lot with where they're supposed to be at who they're supposed to be covering and you see it all the time Lante David and we'll be yelling at people are pointing pointing or right before the ball snapped. And then if the quarterbacks they take advantage of that and just like last week with drew brees I I felt like they were targeting Devon white a lot because they know that's the weak link in our coverage and you could see in the tape guys would be telling Devon been white basically where to go where lineup to do. And he's the guy with the communication thing on the back of his helmet right. Yeah he's willing to call snap the plays how he'd has analogy supposed to be doing what I'm saying. He doesn't know what he's supposed to be building but it it's really more of just a hesitation and there was one play in particular where he got just just a little bit. He went just a little bit too far. Michael Thomas took advantage of man. You talk about their big forty one. yarder yeah in the Dow was designed to get Michael Thomas Match with the change. Did it perfectly and you can tell in that Clip Devon White was just hesitant you know if he would have an and you can also see in the clip to. I think it was called. Today was an Levante was both pointed to Devon White. Saying he's coming your way you know. That's your guy and Devon white kind of went inside instead instead of running with Michael Thomas and it was just a it was just a brief little stutter. And that was enough. Thomas Dodd Blazer I by any quite a bit it's just you know he's just like like you said it's the speed of the game. You can't do false steps you can't hesitate in we're asking our inside linebackers do a lot now. David's not having a problem with it all but he's also what an eight year. We're really asking them to do a lot. You know I'm not saying he's bad I did say he doesn't seem like a fifth round or v Top five traffic to me saying he can't turn into one but he's not he's not a game changer. He's not you know Bank of plays left and right I mean he's made a few plays days this year but he's made more mistakes and he's made plays and to me. That's how I judge a player one of the reasons why I didn't like Jerry McCoy you know because he made way more mistakes sakes and he did plays not probably a factor of three to one and that's just unacceptable especially when you make one hundred million dollars in. That's one of the reasons..

"Network. so crazy how. storyline can change even after one week so the eagles against the Redskins in the NFC east matchup that was not scale boys and shot him the one that got a lot of extra attention and Carson Wentz the focus really for a lot of reasons I hadn't played Finn swat Ted two thirds of the way through last regular season but there is no more Nick Foles as that safety blanket man falls goes to get hurt in its first quarter with the Jacksonville Jaguars so light comes at you fast in the NFL to be sure it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio I I had a call earlier this week after me if Matt Ryan is dying if he is done done done he said it like four or five different ways if you don't. here's Doug Peterson coach of the eagles about Matt Ryan our guys just I want so they play differently but you know this get after and and they put pressure on a man and anytime you do that to quarterbacks and and disrupt their timing can cause turnovers incomplete passes move him off a spot whatever it is you know we've been able to do that and international be challenged down there. so yeah still think that the defense has to be able to create some push on the line get to the quarterback be disruptive but it's going to be a challenge in Atlanta I'm looking forward to this game I think this is one that should be inside some desperation with the Atlanta Falcons. and for them the start couldn't have been any worse similar to the Pittsburgh Steelers how could it have been any worse similar to the Cleveland Browns couldn't have got much worse. but now you have we can never to a chance to right the ship you get to be Holman. at Mercedes Benz. and this is a really good gate. the eagles are a team that if healthy they remain healthy. I think could be the total package could be one of the tougher teams in the NFL and so for the Atlanta Falcons an opportunity to not just proved to the outside forget the outsiders fans analysts talk show host like Maura..
