Mason and Ireland [HR 1]

"I hey hi. How are you what's happening. Hey Hey you know for those of you. thinking the dodgers playoffs don't start until Thursday thinking in two hours from now two hours from now it matters the winner of tonight wildcard. What Card playoff game a game you can hear right here on. ESPN LA means everything to the dodgers because that's who they play yeah. It's either going to be the Washington nationals. Nationals who are hosting the Milwaukee brewers the nationals are starting Max Scherzer who figures would be really good and the brewers plan on throwing five were six different pitches tonight. Hey by the way the nationals plan on throwing sure tsar for four and then going to Strasbourg for four yeah. I think that if I Surrey shutting them out after four they're not taking them out. I don't know I don't know they want to keep these guys as fresh as possible to win the game and don't WanNa go to their pen. That's the most important think think Washington does not want to go to its bullpen which has been a disaster all year long even after midseason trades so that means if they have to go to Strasbourg they have to go to Strasbourg and by the way that would mean that the dodgers would face Corbyn in game one Thursday at Dodger Stadium Idiom. Here's my thought on all this. They'RE NOT GONNA burn Strasbourg unless they have to so if sure is going strong after four five innings they'll leave him in but if you're right if he's struggling then you have to Ringstrasse for again and then you burn basically to your three big so I think we're rooting for a a high scoring game higher skating Tuesday. Yep If sherve pitches five innings done for Thursday no Friday what's assume Oh let's assume Corbin I don't know do you. WanNa throw a guy on three days rest this early in the postseason after they lose game one they will they will they'll they'll come back with. Sherzer and then Strasbourg logo game three in Washington. Wait what I'm anticipating if they do go shirts or Strasbourg tonight than Corbin game one serves her game too and then Strasbourg game three on Sunday correct and which would you want. You don't want shared servers Kershaw in game in three you want Strasbourg going to beans kershaw right Kirscher. Kershaw Scherzer's assured there would be no fun on Friday. That's for sure yeah it'll be fascinating to see the way these two teams operate and I think again we're going to start seeing less of this sort of closer slash bridge guy mentality and much more of the whole pitching staff that means if they have to throw Shergar and Strasbourg tonight they throw Shire's in Strasbourg Milwaukee could throw as many as five pitchers tonight six pitchers maybe so and and that's the way the dodgers were playing down the stretch greg. They were thrown six six seven pitches a game yeah they were. They were experimenting with a lot of different things while you saw richhill Goto innings then gone slim two innings and may would get two innings. They're doing a lot of different things because they know that the starters are more important than the bullpen pieces I a friend of mine. WHO's a big dodger? Fan stopped me today and said explain to me why you would wanNA have richhill instead of May or gone and the only thing I can come up with was ritualized experience but isn't he right then in terms of stuff. Wouldn't you rather rather see gunslinger made than retailers. Ritual is only going to throw two or three in Vedeno blitz. Let's isolate those two or three and yes would you would you rather see Gondolen Colin may or ritual ritual ritual through five and two thirds innings when he came back allowed one earned run oh fifty nine batting average against buck fifty fifty nine. Era I think ritual is the right guy for that job now again. If he throws two or three innings that means you may see Johnson or may come in from their rituals. GonNa go as long as you're. You're gonNA let him go. Ritual has been over the last two years the best dodger pitcher in the postseason. You won't see him a third time. I am through the lineup which is a big thing most likely not but that's why you have guys like gunslinger and may be able to have that in the consulate or may right. It's one or the other yeah Goslin or made. An Orioles. Dare stripling is there. They have guys that are starters. Majeida guys that can go multiple innings Yup. No it's it's going to be a really interesting approach for the dodgers and there's a lot of you know concern about Kenley Jansen Kenley Jansen in the month of September actually through okay with the exception of one. S- one appearance eleven or third innings he allowed four earned runs two of those came in one appearance buck seventy one average against in point ninety seven whip so Kenley Jansen isn't sick saves in seven opportunities so he did have a blown say but six saves in seven opportunities in September. I don't feel bad about that. Yes money GRONDAHL batting second tonight for the brewers so you've been doing that lately. It seems weird weird paying attention maybe watch they obviously had to had to kind of go crazy win. Christian Yelich went down for of the season but it's only one game anybody can win. One game. Doll wasn't all star this year just to be completely clear so him being up the top dozen surprise me yeah right he wasn't he'd had a fantastic year for Milwaukee by the way that we get every once in a while. We get odd from Las Vegas. Yeah and you know that I'll just read them to you so here are the odds courtesy of bent online American League Kim. Vp Alex Bregman Tuta three Mike Trout eleven to ten so in other words they think Bregman got it while so maybe trump trout missing that last three four weeks of the season really hurt him but cody bellinger to win the National League. MVP One to two huge favorite yes so the big favourite so but trout looks like he's out. I mean they know something. They wouldn't make Bregman a two to three favorite. He's minus one fifty two to three verses six NAFTA five Actually that's really close. Ah Level Trout's eleven to ten right by learned men and two two two three r close well that goes trout is plus. One ten and Bregman is minus one fifty so if you bet one hundred dollars on you'd have to Tibet one hundred fifty dollars is to win a hundred on Bregman Bregman right and if you bet one hundred dollars on trout you get one hundred ten back right so it's did they think Bregman got some so more interesting things. Los Angeles Angels next manager Joe Madden Three two two Joe Girardi seventy cindy to shelter five to why they gets mad and I shocked if it's not a done deal on. I thought I thought Madden would be like what Bregman is like. One is is that out of courtesy. You don't make announcements like that. During the postseason they wait until the end of the series that announcement minor standing he's always been you can't announced announced during the world series but before the world series you are okay so my assumptions they could announce it today if they wanted they actually gone and fired madden yet or is he just no in a madness this Sunday. It's going to be gone no the cubs in Madden announced as he's not gonNA sign. That contract is up so there's an opening in Chicago and there's an opening in in Anaheim so madden is a free agent and I can't imagine a scenario where he doesn't get that job but interesting. Joe Girardi is the second pick Girardi. Who's WHO's been hasn't managed since he left the Yankees wouldn't surprise me to see Girardi. Take a job somewhere I mean there are multiple jobs so it didn't used to play the cups yeah. There's the cubs there. There's the phillies. There's a padres mean. They're multiple jobs open so it wouldn't be surprised to see Girardi land up in in one of those land up in hate that phrase that you you get that from me all right. Let me see Oh. Well you know coming up. We've got the have you heard. The shack. Verses Says Damian Lillard wrap. I've heard about it. I haven't heard battle itself knowing what I know.

It's Mason in Ireland turn up afternoon drive every day at three and John Parlay gesture. You did it again last night. Just a small setback lost yet. Another Bergman won a parlay last night. I am the parlay king now. This is the problem. The one true Pie amd the one true king. That's the first was partly you've never wanted to parlays. I've won the both okay so order you here's the thing you know how much money you have now one hundred ninety eighty six thousand you know the end result of this mace going to have to bet big. No Bergman's going to think he can do it for real. No God no going to bed a what can I bet that Bergman develops an actual gambling problem he's going to go. I made one hundred thousand dollars. I'm GonNa do this for real. Don't you need to start with the money. You know that's what he's GonNa. Do He's going to say I'm a little short on cash. I'M GONNA make a bet. He's GonNa get. He's going to get an off-shore book. Hello Curacao. I know people and and you I'm I'm dead serious. This is where this is heading. You are so hot and mythical money that you are going to somehow amount convince yourself that you can do it for real which is a terrible idea. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have to make a gigantic that they just got to you. You got to parlay betting parlor sucker bet now wait a minute though there if they're not in this case so let's say you bet what are you got like seventy five eight hundred eighty two thousand five hundred dollars not that. I'm counting okay so I'm going to have to do this too but I'm gonNA forty two five yeah. I'm going to have to even do it bigger than you but you you a reasonable last night. What Greg hit was a three team parlay. If you hit a three Teamer Yep k. you just gotta find. Can you really like what I would suggest is college football like take a team like Alabama or Ohio state teams that just roll lost both Wisconsin -Sconsin and Clemson this okay so but talk listen Ireland no but I'm talking about like an and I love those an easy game last week would have been I think Ohio State Michigan was an he's again George Yeah in Michigan. Just kill somebody so look for three of those okay yeah you bet forty grant less than half ways as routine part. Wait listen you find three. You really like you get forty grand. It pays you six to one. That's two hundred forty thousand dollars in Dwarf Birdman. My best bet is to just forty thousand straight up on a game. I feel great and then you only have one twenty. He's two hundred grand. I all I need is a couple of those none. I don't know but if you if you if you just hit three but you know harleys are soccer. They're still he was a soccer. What are you talking about. imbedding three just got one right parlays. If you ask anybody they'll say Harlem just waiting for the right bomb to drop and then I'm dropping a bomb. You have lost eighteen eighteen thousand dollars since you started betting parlors yeah but I won one so sixty five hundred yeah so I've only lost twelve which also I don't understand why he got sixty five hundred for that and I got six six thousand for it. Why did you get sixty five hundred. I just google. What is the three team? Parlay came up sixty one google it all right so tomorrow is gambling day because we're off off the air on Thursday and then Greg doing a show Friday. You're not gonNA have a show. We are add those games are going to drag on forever in Friday at four once. You're listening it'll be people will be listening because we have the Games but the Games are going to go on but we will be your dodger pre-game show Friday at four thirty. the pre-game show will be whatever games on before that that's my prediction we have a thousand dollar bet on that yeah which it's just okay so yeah and they haven't announced announced any of the Friday gametime ship but they're four no the dodgers are either at six thirty or six hundred by the end tonight yeah yeah depending on where they don't shift that much. I mean like for our games either six thirty or six forty Fridays Thursdays the hour different Thursdays the hour difference by the way Rams uh-huh underdogs yeah two point underdogs. Seattle actually got all the lines here Let's see I really hard did Wendy pick two point underdogs at Seattle raiders five point underdogs to Chicago there by the way the hardware of the charger game Denver is terrible. Let me see if I can get it. Where is that Game Broncos chargers. I I think have that yeah. I think it's in. La I think it's here at that bandbox. They play in if it is if it's here I'm going to say I got I. It's at at the bandbox okay. I don't think I don't think you can give the charger seven. I don't think you can do it chargers by six. How close it's it's chargers by six exactly right on the back. Okay Boy Denver's not they've lost two games going down to the wire. The last two weeks jabeen now Bradley Chubb for the year and four JOE FLACCO has been really bad day they they can't run the ball they look they look really bad but but so what's the right side of that game not one not one. I would necessarily be either yeah. That's not the Harvard I'm talking about. Survivor picks this week and I think I'm now out so I can give you all the bad advice you guys need. My mom is in. My arm is still in yeah. I'M GONNA GO MOM is out your mom's out went out with the ramp snap. I'M GONNA go with Philly at home against the jets. That's the biggest points was the same one I'm gonNA take. What's the biggest point spread biggest point. Spread is New England minus fifteen at Washington but you've already taken New England. I'm I've already used doing. Greg has new England New England yet. I'm not using it because I'm waiting for them to play Miami again especially at home yeah but that's risky once you wait then. I I have my this is my system that I'm going now drought. It doesn't matter system. I system that is working right now. is that. I take a home name in the hat. No one home favor that is not playing a division opponent that makes no sense it makes perfect sense the real gamblers. I'm telling you he's GonNa think you can Hindu it for real yeah. This is the biggest risk of getting hot and mythical money will be making money will be He. He's going to be like Matt Damon. Aiman rounders is getting beat up by a bunch of Russian thugs. I have five times what you have right. That's why I'm saying. You're going to develop an actual gambling problem. You pay that man. He's a year last year. I was way up after the super bowl and I say hey I can do this. Real right and that was in February cannot yeah this. This is October. We're we're just waiting to play our our big. Play in December. Parlay is coming in December all right Let me see coming up. We'll do the the dame lillard shack will also coming up as Matthew Berry so you can fill in yeah yeah yeah yeah for for this or that I need to make I need to make a fantasy. Football Trade. got a look at the teams like you that are on the bottom and I'm I'm on a one game winning streak. That is impressive but the guy played this week. Is it one inch away from beating fantasy that Cooper Cup play now had he gotten into the end zone on that or they call it correctly beat new fifty to forty nine would've should at your teammate any great shakes. You WanNa bet might finish out your team your what two and two I'm not betting of course not sure the worst so bad player lost my number one pick. I lost saquon Barkley. I'll trade for him. Trade Me Saquon Barkley Way. I feel so calm cutting in Tonio Brown this week you're you're that confident often who out of the League right cutting I'll trade. I'll trade for Saquon Barkley if you want to pick up his. Did you pick his backup. Yeah backups as backup. I've got so so there are no saquon will be back sooner or later. The guy played this week has no quarterbacks. I gotta I'M GONNA trade him a quarterback and see if I can fleece them yeah because you've got both I've I've got three good quarterbacks got. Brady mahomes right no Brady Wentz and Stafford who have all been great this year wow so and his his quarterbacks are Baker Mayfield sleep on the Brown Sam Darnold in Gardner Miss.. You don't sleep on the browns. Oh that's a bit we should bet ya That's like a a big mason in Ireland disagreement. You think the browns are GonNa have a winning record. I think they're going to losing right. Now is five hundred constitute a winning record. It's the push to push so What do you WanNa bet that I I say Randall finished with a losing record this season you say well. Can we do that or does this. Season go into twenty twenty goes into twenty twenty. We can just say at the end of the year. Yeah we'll figure it out so coming up next Matthew Barry so if you WanNa know who play fantasy football this weekend this or that Matthew will take your calls and Matthew will will will also you can tweet us yes twitter at Venice Mace twitter at.

ESPN and we can also tweet on twitter at Venice Maze Twitter at Ireland a who you play who do you not play this weekend in Fantasy Mason and Ireland ESPN la.. I turn up afternoon drive Mason Ireland. Matthew Berry is on the line. The talented wanted Mr Rodeo Matthew how you doing man I'm good good. How Are you Oh Matthew. We're doing great and you're killing as usually see you on all different platforms at ESPN ESPN bunch of questions for you this week so let's. Let's just start throwing them out there. What should mace. I think you're in this yeah. What should people do with Melvin Gordon implant system trade him to do what would I do. I think it depends on what you have there. I haven't done my ranks yet for week five but apply have him. You know borderline rb to high end. They've said they want to eat him and it's a good match and believe it or not the Broncos broncos thirtieth against the run over the last four weeks. I mean we just saw what Leonard Fournette doing last week and so you know and he'll catch some balls out of the backfield because you know they're pretty pretty beat up so we don't know kind of what kind of conditioning he's in yet but Anthony Lennon said he's going to be the guy so you know I think first week back it's probably more of a split between him and cler but I'm probably starting depends on who else you have of course interesting all right my rank on. ESPN okay so what in General Matthew ask you. What are you telling people to do with Todd Gurley. I think you've gotta keep holding onto him right. I mean so lame though plan every week yeah of course I mean look he's still still getting. It's still one of the best offenses football he's still getting seventy five percents of the snaps running back snaps for the rams. You Know Malcolm Brown. He's GonNa get two or three series of game but you know what are we scored twice last week. Tim based got the number one run defense in the NFL through the first four weeks of the season like so just the fact that he didn't. He didn't run much last last week. The fact that he was in using the passing game was great because he hasn't been using the passing game up until last week so you know we talked about this on the show last week. Maybe who knows maybe Sean John mcvay or somebody from the rams heard that and like Oh yeah maybe we should throw todd Gurley a little bit more. I think that was good and you know seahawks. It's IT'S A it's a it's a tough run defense but I think you've gotta keep starting early as long as he's healthy and out there okay last week. Winkelmann was the big waiver wire pickup. Who is the big waiver wire pickup. Who should people be looking for this week. I don't know there's anyone great out there. In terms of running back or just in general general in general you know listen. It looks it's like Davante. Adams is trending towards not playing so drama allison who has had double fantasy points in eight eleven games in which is run at least thirty routes and if Adams isn't gonNA play. He's GonNa play a lot and so I you know Alison along with Markelle. Zealous Gatling are going to be the top to pass catching options tends for Aaron Rodgers against the cowboys on Sunday so drama Alison I think is right up there running back Ronald Jones the Tampa Bay buccaneer look good look good good last week against against the Rams and you start to play played a lot. More snap play got more touches. What do you think of Jalen Samuels. What do you think of Jalen Eland Samuels from the steelers. I was just about to mention him. You know so he had a real nice game last week and it doesn't seem like they want to have Mason Rudolph really open it up at least initially so there you know. I don't think they're gonNA get away with as much gadget stuff next week now that they've sort of playing the bengals it's the first time anyone saw them do that so they're not gonna get away with it as much but I think he's a flex play. I'd prefer Ronald Jones Jalen sales because he's still got James Conroy low James Connor. You know it came up that he he he hurt his ankle last night so we don't know how serious that is but he's important handcuff obviously the James Connor and then also. I think there's some flexibility given that they're you know they're letting him throw some passes. It's you know whatever it's that it's that short little shovel pass thing but it still counts as a pass you know and they're they're having him run the ball and they're playing some wildcat all cat with him so yeah. I think Jalen Samuels as long as Pittsburgh keeps. This sort of offense is a flex by going forward with obviously handcuff upside. Also Jordan Howard's out there in about he's only I was going to ask you about him. He had a monster game and is he now like the Eagles go-to. Guy Was that just one game a little bit about so it he's not the Eagles Guy. Because Doug Peterson always likes a running back by committee having said that like they don't WanNa give it all the miles sanders who's had a up and down rookie year ear so far they like how Jordan Howard finishes runs they like them in closed like them in short yardage and goal line so here's a team that gets into the Red Zone A lot. What has a very good offensive line. Jordan Howard scored nine touchdowns each of the last two years. You know obviously well on his way to that this year. So I Jordan Howard ranked higher than Mile Sanders Zander's this week in a pretty good match against the jets so it's still gonNA be running back by committee but Jordan Howard is still available in like forty five percent of ESPN. Leagues is certainly somebody that if he's out there in your league is worth looking at. I'm forego the cost last thing the everybody's picked up all these Kansas City guys like I picked up both demarcus Robinson and Daryl Williams. Should I be playing these guys having so obviously without knowing who else you have and Williams is playing time. I think is somewhat predicated on Damian. Williams sure his team mate WHO's missed the last two weeks. We don't know yet if he's going to be able to play this week against against the colts but yes if Damian Williams out again then Daryl. Williams certainly should be started. He's got like he's got at least half that backfield job tillerson McCoy now some it's play based on blocking an understanding of of schemes and and package concepts because McCoy just got their Daryl Williams has been in the system longer. You know you saw at the end of the game against the lions like they went to Williams. You know and he's one of the scored the game yeah. Blah called the timeout though I mean they he was on the field but they call the time out and they could have obviously put in in McCoy and they stuck with their William so I think they trust them a little bit more in terms of in terms of pass protection and understanding of the Games so it's still going that'd be a committee there between McCoy and whichever Williams is healthy okay matthew. Let's get some of these calls. Here's Lewis in Riverside Louis. What's your question for Matthew Berry and so I got Tom Brady and have also owned. They've both got good matches. What do you think man. I thought I believe Matthew before for you. Answer Lewis's question. Is it safe to say that you should never ever bench. Patrick mahomes no matter what I can't imagine doing that I I understand. He didn't anthro touchdown pass. It's still better than Brady was last week and there's no question. Brady has an amazing match against my pathetic redskins but I can't ever imagine clicking bench on Patrick. mahomes either can't imagine doing that so I mean I my honest answer. Lewis I think he said his name was. He's like start working. The trade wires start like you should not have both guys on your team yeah. I'm in that boat to one of them. Okay here is advance in Orange County ad van. What's your question for Matthew Berry. They were going on how you doing. What's your question. I got a question I got running back Harris so on my I got Mr Austin Exeter and Allman and Jason James White. Oh those are three good backs right Gaughman James White and Austin Cler Matthew. What do you do with that James White Austin Ecuador and Wayne Gaughman so oh Goldman's the guy. I'm benching this week actually look. It's always tough with James. White obviously because of the way it goes but I think he'll again. I think you starting everyone against the redskins. there a gunman really nice game but they're playing the vikings really tough defense in Minnesota government I think could he gets in passing in game involvement. He could your banking on volume there with Gaughman but of the three of you can't imagine benching actor even though Gordon's back. I can't imagine benching just it yet so Goldman bench three. Here's some wrap. We'll try to sell high on Gaughman. Upcoming schedule is pretty brutal. Okay here's some rapid fire on twitter Kevin Ramos Brady or reset Brady forty niners defense or eagles defence the Eagles defense at at home against the jets Ricky Amend as Daryl Williams or Matt Braida I'm GonNa go with Daryl Williams for now but again if Damian Williams exactly then you're going to Breda but that's the Monday night game so you'll know in time derelict. That's the exact same question Jacoby percent or Philip rivers. boy believe it or not. I think I'm GONNA say Jacoby. Bruce set the over under in that game is fifty seven against the chiefs. He knows you're. GonNa have the throw to keep up. Jacoby percent the only quarterback in the NFL to throw multiple touchdown passes every game this year crazy stat chargers play in Denver Yeah I. I actually think overfill. Would you trade Hollywood Brown for Stefan digs boy. That's a tough one seem fair yeah. I think I'd still probably rather Stefan digs system. I understand they're passing games disaster but it's a much more narrow targetry. I think Lamar Jackson completed passes to nine different different guys on Sunday now. Here's Amelio in southgate. Hey Melia. What's your question for Matthew Berry. Hey guys should I start James Connor or Melvin Gordon. I'm starting James Conner assuming he's healthy again like it came out today that he had an ankle injury. I don't know how serious it is but assuming both are active and healthy. I prefer connor to the unknown workload of Gord so matthew. I'll let you promotes. I'm here in a second but I want to ask a general question for you. You're so nice to handle all these questions that we throw rotate every week. Do you get these in your like everyday life like if you go to corner bakery or you go to the supermarket to somebody go hey matthew. I love your work. I don't want to bother you and then he was one of these this or that a hundred percent and like I should be so lucky as to get the hey matthew. I don't WanNA bother other us. I sometimes I get that but a lot of times it's just literally like a Juju dude would you were adamant or whatever I mean and sometimes they're using it like they recognize me and they WANNA say hi but they don't want to quote unquote. You know be like a fan boy so it's sort of a way to break the ice but they're literally times where people just say stuff like that to me. I like literally two weeks ago when the the news about Antonio Brown came up before the Patriots released him but you know after the SL article had come out before the Patriots released that weekend like I was at the movies with my wife and I'm like I'm going to the bathroom. I like getting that. She's GonNa take. I'm just walking into the bathroom. As I'm walking the bathroom. A Guy who's walking out literally looks at me and just goes. What are we doing about. Ab What's going on and I'm like can I just urinate breakdown. Antonio Brown's legal legal situation. I mean like so yeah it. Does that happens a lot. hey lasting asking for a friend. Tyler Murray or Jacoby perset. You know what I'm a kyle apologised. I'M GONNA say Cuyler Murray. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA Follow Matthew into the abyss on that one man i. I'm a column early. Look there you know on the Road Cincinnati. It's it's such a it's such a brutal defense. I like both guys this week but I think the rushing upside of Kyla Maria is what gives it to me. They're working people like like you're. You're on many platforms. Where would you like to see a little more traffic. What do you want people to check out this week.

The Lightning Round Podcast #184: Training Camp Battles - Part 2

"On like they mold. This is the lightning round podcast with your host Garrett sixty and Jamie voile charge skull. This is the lightning round podcast for Jamie Hoyle, who's tweeting for podcast, the count at lightning underscore around. I am at gear sixty on Twitter. This is part two of our training camp preview. We're covering the charters often of line going into training camp. But first, we've got a donation and a question. So we got a very generous donation from Zachary McNair. Thank you very much after we appreciate it. And he also sent us a message and that message is you guys are the best. What's your thoughts on paying Gordon? He's injury prone and a bit overrated. Why not use the franchise tag? Also, what's your honest opinion on Bosa will resign with us? I feel like the Bosa Derwin James combo could keep his relevant for some time. Thanks for all the great content. All right. So you tell me your thoughts. What do you feel about paying Gordon? I've been saying since last season that I think they're gonna franchise him. I think they will try to work out a contract extension with him. And he's gonna want a boatload of money based on what David Johnson and tug early got from their respective teams. And I think they're going to realize that they have other other players who make larger impacts on the game who need to get paid over the next couple of years, and they will try to stretch him out a lot like they did with Melvin Gordon and use the franchise tag to try to buy themselves some time and use it as leverage. Try to get drive the price down on him a little bit. I think they may eventually wind up extending in, but I don't think it's going to happen right away. I don't think it'll be this year and I think they'll, they'll franchise tag next year because I just think it's a smart thing to do with a running back who's got some wear and tear on them who's been beat up. I just think he don't wanna throw huge money at him. I don't think it's smart. I don't think it's prudent. And I think they will recognize that once they start looking at re-signing guys like both. Guys like Henry and Philip and does McCain and some of the guys that need to be resigned. Yeah. You know, Gordon's brought up Todd Gurley. He's brought up David Johnson's contract. He said he wanted to see what lady on bell was gonna get this year, and so early got fourteen point three million labianca thirteen point million a year and Johnson landed at thirteen million a year. And so if that's the barometer I'm out. I agree with you. I think they in a franchise tagging him 'cause you gotta keep Gordon as long as you can. Because he's a vital part of this offense. But, you know, like the guys you mentioned, I'm paying rivers, and Bosa and king, and Henry before I'm paying Gordon, and then you look in two years from now to twenty one you got Keenan Allen on the docket. You got Russell Kun Melvin Ingram. They're all free agents than so you got a lot of people to pay. And we've said it on his podcast, many times, it's not smart overpay for running back. And that's why we never want the charters to sign one free agency. I think he deserves a contract, obviously. He's been a very good player. But for the chargers has got to be at the right price. For me, same thing, you know, it's, it's hard to justify paying a running back that much money, envy, fourteen to thirteen million dollar range, which is where he's looking right now with the girly Bill Johnson range. Yeah. And I think you start hearing some of his comments he's made in recent weeks. He said it several times, I know my worth, I know my value. I know what I'm worth people are worried about both being difficult to resign. I think I think Gordon's going to be difficult to resign because I think he has even though he is valuable and he is a good football player a good running back and he's valuable this offense. I think he might have a slightly over inflated view of what he's worth as a running back. So he might be more difficult to resign than people think. And if it comes down to keeping Bosa or keeping king, or keeping Melvin Gordon, I think the chargers can get. Without gordon. Whereas you've got huge holes on your roster and big problems. If you lose absurd as king or even hunter. So I just think there are other players that need to be paid. And I think at because he's a running back and because they do have a nice stable running backs behind him, and they're relatively easy to find apparently, I think it's I think that they might deprioritize him a little bit to the extent that, you know, they're not they're not in a rush to sign him to a multi your deal and you know, Austin cler was great last year. And showed signs of running back one even though when he got the opportunity didn't quite short like Gordon does as about cow back. But yeah I mean he he mentioned multiple times. I know my worth. And then, you know, when asked about holding out or if there, going to be any complications, you said, I just hope it doesn't come to that. And I can only control what I can control which is, you know what most players say they try to get to work and do their job. But, you know, I think this, this could get ugly. They've talked about wanting to. Sign him this off season. But they haven't come to an agreement and with statements, I know my worth, it seems like the chargers are kinda underplaying their handwrite now. And I don't blame them. I mean he's a good football player. I don't know if he's overvaluing his worth. I mean, I'm sure team would pay him thirty million a year. He's definitely one of the better running backs in the league. But again like you mentioned you know, they've got a four running back deep stable right now with Newsom and Justin Jackson and Austin cler seems like the chargers do pretty well with the running backs and they can definitely push him down. The pay line if you will. When you talk about guys like Henry, and king, Bosa and rivers coming up. Yeah, I totally agree. So we asked, you know what your honest opinion on Bosa resigning? You think it's gonna be a bigger journey to get Mel, Gordon resigned than Joey, Bosa? I think it might be because I have a feeling the chargers view Bosa as they're the face of the franchise moving forward. Because Philip even though he's technically the face of the franchise, he's not he's long in the tooth. Obviously, he probably will not be around for more than a couple more years. So I think they rightly look at Bosa as the guy, they're gonna build most of their marketing plans around him and James, and I think they will be a rush to pay him accordingly. So I do think that they will get something done with him. I know people keep saying he was tough to sign last time. They're not going to get it done. He's, he's gonna people think he wants to go play with his brother Nick up in San Francisco. You know, I think people are just assigning their opinion to him based on how they've, you him from the last time around, and I have a feeling that I just think it gets done. I think he realizes what he's worth to the team, the team realizes what he's worth them. And I got I gotta feel like Gus Bradley would lose his mind. If. They let him walk. So I think I think Bosa gets done before Gordon before Gordon does. And I think that's the right way to go. Yeah. If you've been a longtime fan of this podcast, you know, that Jamie, and I were on team Bosa during those contract negotiations and that the chargers were definitely not giving him what he wanted and what he should have got. But yeah, I actually agree with you here to the report. Recently was that Matt very Durham. I think is last name was the charge. We're gonna aim to resign joy Bosa next off season. And that makes sense. You know, it'd be the boasts fourth year before he hits free agency. They can obviously tag him to, but we'll see how it goes. There's two things at play here. You know, during the two thousand nineteen season Bosa could God forbid, miss some more time, and maybe even help out charge a little bit in terms of contract, negotiation, and pushed price tag down knowing that, you know, his sophomore year was the only time he played sixteen games. Orca go the other way in both blows the door awfully the league in sacks. And that price, tag gets hiked up. But. If that's the case in the chargers would be pretty good, two thousand nineteen so I can't complain. It's not my money. But either way, they're gonna find a way to get this done because he really is the face of the franchise the during the draft process. They coveted him for years before drafting him. He is the guy. They want. Here's the pass rusher that they envisioned him to be. He will definitely be the face the franchise. You will be the pass rusher. Long win Melvin Ingram is gone so Bosa will be a high priority at least a higher priority than mobile, Gordon. Yeah. And I think if you look at the way, the contracts are breaking out the over the next couple of years, you know, both is going to be entering his prime as a player next off season. Whereas after twenty twenty one you're looking at Melvin Ingram being, I think thirty or thirty one. Yeah, definitely on the outside of his prime if not heading towards the end, and it's probably likely that they will let him walk when he it's free agency if he's not if he's not amenable to a team friendly deal. So that really leaves. Osa as the core of the defensive line him, and Tillery, hopefully, if everything works out, and I think that will push them even further to get done realizing that they're not gonna have that tandem of Ingram Bosa and they're not gonna wanna start over from scratch against. They're want to keep us around to make sure that they have that core on the defensive lines the guys on the back end can play. Well big plays on the football. I mean, if you're looking towards the future, that's the move, you gotta make when, you know, Ingram's gonna be older and going to be a free agent coons older. So he might walk to. But you've gotta lock up your young players that are good rivers. Obviously, a guy they're going to get they gotta get done before anybody. But, you know, guys like does king, and, and Joey Bosa and even hunter Henry those guys that are definitely going to be a high priority for sure. So let's go ahead and move on offense of line because that's what we're going to be talking about today. We're going over the chargers offense of line going into training camp. We'll talk about tackles guards centers everybody going into camp. Let's go ahead and. Talk about tackles the chargers have five on the roster. It is Russell Kun starting left tackle they've got Sam teddy at right tackle. Of course, the third round pick trae Pipkins Trent Scott and the UTSA Blake camper. So this is a group with probably one spot. That's available kind of upper competition going into camp legitimately, and no, it's not the starting right tackle spot. Unfortunately, should be. But it's not. So obviously, like you mentioned, they've got cool Okuno and tabby book any offensive line going into the season. And you gotta figure that just because he was here last year and they kept him around. Scott is probably going to make the team. And that leaves the rookie trae Pipkins being a kind of a secondary, swing tackle if they decide to carry four tackles, that if they only carry three it'll come down to pick Scott, and you would assume that Pickens walks off with that spot based on the fact that he's a third round pick. Hopefully they carry four tackles especially with you know, the, the news that Russell Kun is nursing an undisclosed injury. And nobody seems to know what is wrong with him or how it happened, or when or if he's going to be back, you know, it just kind of seems to me like whatever this injury is they should know what it is by now. And are they doing? They're not telling us they just haven't figured it out yet. And it feels like it's headed in the direction that Joey Bosa injury headed in last year in training camp, which was oh, he's fine. He's fine. He's fine. He's fine Otit. He's not fine. And that kind of feels like that's where it's going. And if they lose Okuno. This tackle groups in big trouble. Because then you're talking about tabby, probably playing left tackle Scott or Pipkins playing right tackle on a regular basis, there's just all kinds of havoc being wreaked there. So hopefully the young guys play while camp. Maybe they find a way to add a veteran at some point camp to, to bring along the competition. But, you know, you're looking at three maybe four tackles tops and the UDF Blake camper at best probably battling out for a training camps, or a practice squad spot. Undisclosed injury is always scary could be terrible or could be nothing. And I guess the uncertainty is the worst about it. But Anthony Lynn even said they were unclear the severity. And even if you'd be ready for training camp. So we don't even have a timetable, which is a little bit scary. I mean as a very least we know there's no broken bones. That'd be easy to diagnose, but, like muscle strains, and pulls, you just don't know about those timelines optician, with, like, yeah this last year. Yeah, exactly. You just never. No. So though, Kuhn out the chargers move Sam teddy the current starting right tack over left tackle than they moved Trent Scott to right tackle, and we're starting to see how bad this offense of Lionel be if Russell misses any significant time trae Pipkins would probably take over left tackle spot because that's how they drafted him. And he's a left tackle only said they mentioned swing tackle, but they view him as a, a left tackle in the NFL, Sam Tevi stain, a right tackle. But that's still an encouraging, you've got the chargers have already indicated when they drafted trae Pipkins that he's going to need some time develops. So there'd be a hell of a trial by fire to have him start on the blindside, his rookie year, so I'm hoping personally that another tackle falls in their lap. The. Joe Barksdale during cuts and it just seems like there's no wiggle room this group of Russell coons gone there in major trouble and the drafted trae Pipkins. They don't have any real NFL ready tackles going. I mean Okuno obviously a pro bowler at his best, but outside of him you've got Sam Tevi, who was a bottom five right? Tack last season. Transcribe who was fine last year. But you don't really wanna see him on the field for starter snaps trae Pipkins, again, will need some time Blake camper, view, DFA, South Carolina. He was exclusively right tackle there. He's six eight three nine really big frame, but in really have any starter experience until last season where he started eight game. So even in the college level camper couldn't get on the field. So you can't really depend on him. This group is really, really razor thin. You've got Russell at left tackle trae Pipkins behind him. Maybe Sam heavy in a pinch. I guess now and then you've got Sam heavy right? Tackle Trent Scott and Blake camper. So that group does not look good on paper. So this is something we've talked about in the past, and the chargers have kind of pooh-poohed over the last couple of years. But you kind of wonder if their hand might be forced is could they be forced into additioning force lamp at right tackle being that he did play Taqwa very high level in college? They seem to be happy with their two guards who will talk about here in a few minutes. But if he's not able to win a starting guard spot, and they want to get something out of their second round pick. Could they reevaluate decision not to play forest lamp at right tackle and throw them out there in camp and see if maybe he can fill a whole, if Oku is out for a significant amount of time, definitely something to watch? Let's go ahead and talk about these guards and go into the interior, of course, starters return, again from last year regard, Michael Scofield left, guard, Dan, Feeney the man, you just mentioned force lamp is owned up chart Spencer Drago in two UDF as KOTA Martin and Chris Brown, of course, Dan. Michael Scofield stars year ago. Pat Meyer, said four slant deters, offensive line coach said force lamp will have every opportunity to compete for starting job Meyer, also said force lamp is going to swap between left guard and right guard in camp, both Fenian Scofield weren't very good last year. I think Fini was worse than that group to be honest, but the best part about their game was availibility. They started all sixteen games. So that's obviously great. This is this is one of the tighter battles and camp here because everyone wants four slam starting and Feeney and Scofield coming off a bad year in two thousand eighteen could easily be thrown Fini was worse again, but seems like Scofield gonna be twenty nine in the season they invested to pick in both Fini an lamp. So they might be doing those two future Garza's what they did when they drafted him age. Could play a part here for Michael Scofield, but really lamp could replace either. At this point, he will certainly be granted the paternity in terms of. Penser drago. He spent time on the tragedy practice squad last year. He was drafted by the Browns play tackle before landing inside and eventually being waived drunk will be a guy to watch because he could probably compete with coal toner, who will talk about in the center group, as one of the, you know, final interior spots not not a great player, but Cole toner also just agai. You know, Drago could be guard depth can also play tackle when we talked about how thin that tackle spot is maybe the last tack on depth chart and then have pouncey you got guys like question bery could play center. And then maybe throw Fenian there at Senator to which they didn't camp. But Drago again another practice squad candidate in terms of the phase, KOTA Martin play, tackle, Syracuse team listed him as a guard. In fact, Martin play left and right tackle in college pretty athletic linemen, he was a former tight end. He looked pretty good second level. I showed a slow initial get off, which is part of the reason why they probably kicked him inside. He's got the play. Style that I'm sure the charge looking for from an athletic standpoint. So he's got to watch and then Chris Brown tackle at USC. Eventually became a guard pitching on special teams, huge frame, six five three ten but tested as a very poor athlete. He Brown doesn't really fit the athletic profile the charge to look for in their guards. No. Yeah. You mentioned Scofield and feeding not playing while last year. Both of them struggled mightily. They're both good athletes, Fini probably more so than Scofield Feeney's, the guy who seems to be looking to make the next step in his career. He worked with. No blanking on his name. But saw -fensive line coaches. Duke Mary weather. Yeah. He he spent the offseason working with Duke Manny, weather, who's a famed offensive line coach. So, you know, at the very least we can take we can go with the idea that maybe, you know, he's, he's looking to improve looking to get stronger, and take that next step in his career, which is incursion because he took a big step back last year after successful rookie season. So the chargers you're probably looking at a starting combination of either Fenian, lamp, or Phoenix go field or lamp and Scofield some somewhere in there, depending on how guys play right now, you'd probably think that Fini is would be the first one to be replaced just based on how he played last year. Terrible impasse protection, much better run Walker. And I mean we've been waiting for, for two years now, we're now we're going to see a heavy dose force lamp on the interior that line. So hopefully he steps up and plays very well. I think people a lot of people are tired of talking about him. So now it's time to see him play. Can can he? Play. Can he stay healthy? Can he assert himself in an offensive line battle and take a job for me? They're phoenix. Scofield. Gotta start getting some kind of value out of that second round pick, otherwise it's time to start using the b word here pretty soon and not bitch because not bitch. Bust? Yeah. I wasn't. Yeah. Different be word. I was not censoring myself. Sorry. But they do need start getting something out of lamp. I still wanna see him tackle. I don't think it will happen. But I would love to see it. I just feel like he was the best tackle on his draft class. And he's a great athlete. I think he can hang out there at right tackle, but they seem to be against that. Because his arms or whatever a quarter of an short which still seems to be ridiculous to me. You're probably looking at the team carrying three guards I would say, maybe four at the most probably three if you figure they're going to carry four tack four tackles, so. You know, barring a surprise it seems to me like you're looking at them, breaking camp with Scofield lamp and Feeney. And maybe you mentioned drank. Oh, because, yes, some experience when he sneaks in as a utility lineman kind of thing, but the rest of the UDF as probably not gonna make the roster, maybe one of the makes the practice squad at best, that's probably the best case scenario for those guys, I would think probably KOTA Martin over Chris Brown. Probably just based on the profile. Yeah, yeah. So let's go ahead and talk about these centers, then, and there are four here it is center. Mike pouncey, of course started from last year. You've got to guard centers here to interior linemen Scott question berry coal toner and the free agent center Tanner Bolson, so obviously, pounds he's going to make the team to be the starting center, so you can lock that position and that leaves, you know, three guys competing for probably one spot. Maybe two spots with the most. Question berry they drafted. So you figure he's probably gonna make the team. And then that leaves to UDF as well, one one UDF A1. third year player in toner and volts in competing for maybe one more spot toner spent the whole year on the on the fifty three but he was an active basically on game day, so they liked him enough to keep Macktaz flat or keep them on the fifty three last year as opposed to putting them on the practice squad. So you would assume he's got the inside track at a potential third utility lineman center guard type spot behind pouncey and question. Very hey, I'm Spencer Hong. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan nanny. I'm Jason Kirk. And we're the host of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast says in the script onto riff on what that means and basically what I mean is all every Tuesday. We talk about everything from cooking. Disasters to pro wrestling, too unfashionable pants worn middle school. We also do talk about college football every now and then like mass.

Subscribe for free on apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast app. Yeah. Yeah. So obviously pouncey was a pro bowler last year. So and also the best lineman to be honest last year. So he's a lock at center, he kinda fell off towards the end. But very, very good. Scott question. Very colts owner, both played center guard training camp last year. Both made the squad, you know, question berries, gotta be a shoe in for the fifty three. They've talked about his work ethic, and his versatility garden centers far in col- toner, like mentioned earlier just kind of guy he was only active one game two thousand eighteen so he's gonna be on the bubble center Tanner, Bolson. That's obviously eastern sticks old teammate very decorated player. Won a bevy of award. North Dakota state. He's got the experience the wars, smarts touters, one of the best from blockers in the draft. Obviously went undrafted, because of his below average athletic testing he could have announced chance as third center, but, you know, more of a practice squad candidate there. So last year, the chargers. Carried nine offense lineman on their fifty three. It was Russell Kun, Dan Feeney Mike pouncey, Michael Scofield Sam Tavee force lamp, Joe Barksdale Scott question. Burien coal toner serve. You're looking at that list, if you replace Joe Barsha, with trae Pipkins that last spot that, you know, the aid is probably locked up and Oku, Fini, pouncey Scofield Tevi lamp Pipkins question, berry in your nightspot. You've got coal toner. Maybe Trent Scott, that's going to be where your competition is. And who's going to get that final office of line spot, you would think given the situation that Aku's in and just based on the general uncertain teeth position, without Okuno, even with no Kun, you'd think they'd be inclined to carry a fourth tackle just just in case if he's an active every week just having that extra body there at that position would help. So, you know, maybe that narrows it down to drank. Oh, and, and Scott. Yeah. To play tackle. Yeah, definitely. And the fact that drank can play both guard and tackle definitely. But I think you know, because transcribe knows the system was on the fifty three. He might have the inside track for that ninth spot on the initial, fifty three going in two thousand nineteen, but that's an open competition. I mean, I think I think eight sponsor pretty much locked up. But that last spot that ninth not that, not that question, berry is, you know, a total lock set in stone, but, you know a pretty good shoe in for the fifty three but, but that lasts pot is open. Yeah. Definitely, and I doubt they carry ten they probably should. But I doubt they will. They're gonna need the extra body and you know they're going to be carrying three quarterback. So. Maybe four running backs. I mean, yeah, they gotta go somewhere, so they can't keep adding. I mean they can't carry fifty six players. Not. Can we make an exception for the chargers? Please. All right. Well, hey man that does it for the offensive line. We've done it. Offense is done. We did quarterbacks running backs Tynan's wide receivers last week if you didn't catch that go check that out move on defense, and we're going to be releasing these podcasts every other week. So look for our next defensive podcast, two weeks from now when you're listening, so appreciate you guys listening and also Jamie, and I talked and we'll be at training camp. So come and find us this year. Yeah. We'll let you know him. We're gonna be out there. It'll be sometime in August most likely, but we will be out there.

My dear pals I of on twitter at chief in Carolina Mattie Lane. Paloma friend how are we doing it? I am fantastic I watching Bengals browns and watching Joe Borough dealing out here. Life is good. It life is always good when football started you the reigning world champions that are WanNa know and you have a divisional match up on the horizon with a team that been the more football we see just simply doesn't look very good. Isn't that Right Greg? Yeah that yeah it's real. Nice to be a fan of the Kansas City chiefs right now they're one of the very few teams in the League that look actually competent the more and more. We see football wise here. So yeah, I'm really looking forward to the chiefs beating the crap out of the chargers this weekend boiler score. Ten. We're going to look at the analytics on this on this episode and everybody's just GonNa stop listening now because we just talked about how the cheese are going to beat the brakes off of the chargers in. The want to hear that you have to listen to the end to see our prediction for Frank Clark's F grade. which is vital and just just. So you know he could have five sacks this week and the number his grade is going to start with five. It doesn't matter what that man does, but that's a different day maybe ran Swanson will come out in the post game show after five sacks. Let's start as we do with the most important side of the football special teams. All right first up Dave Tube. Oh. Sorry. No we're going with the offense with the greatest player in the world and I think we have to start with this on the minds of everybody the run pass ratio for the Kansas City chiefs was a lot different than we're typically used to here in Kansas, city chiefs ran the football a lot more in week one. Is this going to be a trend Mattie I get it. The chiefs ran the ball a lot especially for the Andy Reid sheaves especially for the Patrick Mahomes lead chiefs. But when you sit down and watch the game, you don't even have to watch the game, go to Daniel Jeremiah's twitter page and just find the video of safeties sprinting fifteen yards off of their already twelve fifteen yard deep sets because of the threat to the vertical passing game. The chiefs are getting free even numbers in the box for running the football. If not an advantage when you split it up into place backside like the chiefs ran the ball a lot because not only because they were winning but because the taxes were making it very easy to run the football and if the chargers do that, and if the Ravens, do that and continue on all season if teams keep doing that to the chiefs and the chiefs are having success at six and seven yards per carry like Clyde Edwards layer was there in the middle. Of that game yeah. They're going to keep running the football because there's no reason not to EPA team selling out to stop the pass why not run the ball underneath when you have the horses that can do it successfully and efficiently that's what we saw from the chiefs. If you get to a point where teams are starting to play the run I. Guarantee You you see a return to a pass happy team I just don't foresee that happening teams are still more scared of the chiefs passing attack than there ever going to be of the Russian attack. Patrick mahomes wants you to play the run. That's exactly what this is. He wants you to sell out to try and stop Clyde Edwards Allaire that's just not going to happen. There's way too many weapons they are going to play deep they're going to try and take away everything deep that the chiefs do the chargers, your team that did that last year, their team that has done that to Patrick mahomes repeatedly here. So this is a situation where we're going to see a similar approach because it's kept games close now you have a running back to make linebacker missing the whole they can make you can make a defensive. Lineman Miss After penetration which the chargers have a good. Defensive Line Clyde, Edwards Hilar- will make them pay for these sorts of things and it's going to make them a better team. It's a more grinded out victory. It's not as fun or pretty to watch because we don't get to sit here and Gush about Patrick Mahomes as much. But honestly, he doesn't care. They don't care. They're going to continue with the ratio as long as there's a light box they're gonNA give Clyde Edwards layer the ball I you know I don't want people to look into this because the the chargers could get just annihilated early and then guess what's going to happen. The chiefs are going to sit on the football. That's what happens with Andy Reid Andy Reid. LOVES TO GET OUT TO A lead, and then just kind run the clock out. That's been a consistent trend for a long time. Now, it's come back to bite him in the past. he does he lets off the he lets off the gas a little bit too early but with this offense with this particular running back. They had a lot more success running the football than they have in the past Clyde. Edwards layer I think I mentioned it. After the game, he gets yards that other running backs. Last year weren't Damian. Williams was not getting the same yards as as quite away or was that stretch play where he kind of slipped through Damian Williams is trying to somehow bounce that and it was not anywhere to bounce but that's just the realities. Glad. Edwards layer is a special talent as a runner and as a receiver. If the cheese out to a lead, the ratio is going to get. Back to that fifty, fifty and people in this community are GONNA, lose their mind and we're GONNA have to tell him to calm down because it's ridiculous. Patrick Mahomes is GonNa Sling the ball eighty reading sling the ball a lot this season. Even if even if it's this week, there's some panic I kind of kind of fun to see the panic frankly. Okay. So we've got to talk about just the chargers defense in general. This is a group that has historically the last few years been able to slow down the Kansas City chiefs offense slowdown relative. Term compared to other it's just compared to other teams how they go about their business forcing long sustained drives. Really selling out there will the first team that really sold out to take away the deep stuff and take away the deep over we've talked about it before this is I mean the people are kind of starting fault charters model bit not necessarily same coverages, but conceptually, they just WanNa just Kinda keep keep the top defense. In years a fun. Sat every time Patrick Mahomes has played the Los Angeles chargers. He is set a new low in passing yards. So each time is played them. He has set his new career low in passing yards out all the way down to one hundred, seventy, four yards in the final regular season game last year that was the lowest he had had up until that point besides the Denver game the left obviously with an injury. So they do very well against the kids city chiefs in Patrick Mahomes in two, thousand, eighteen to. Know his first full year starting he started off the year the bank against them but each time since then they've got a little bit better and better and essentially what they do is they say, Hey, we're going to give you everything underneath of us. You're GonNa take eventually, and then we're GonNa make the tackles and they've done very well at that. You know who else tried to do that the Tennessee titans in the playoffs the San Francisco Forty niners in the Super Bowl like I think the Houston Texans in week one this season. See mahomes growing. He's understanding how to take advantage of this stuff. At Work Andy Reed's obviously figuring out ways to help. So I do think the chiefs are going to have some more plans. If anybody goes back in remembers that super bowl I know everybody talks about Mahomes to interceptions and acts like Waas was a turning point. The first half of that Game Patrick Mahomes was dealing he was moving the chiefs up and down the field and if it wasn't for Damian Williams Losing A wheel route and the lights and a weird and around the Michael Hartmann that lost yardage on second down that cheese probably win in a blowout because the offense was working that. Well I do think this is a game that the chief figure out how to attack short had to attack intermediate and finally solve the chargers defense. I don't know if you're going to get vertical on them a ton they really do go. Out of their way to take that away from you but the chance to hit some of those intermediate routes I think you're gonNA see a lot more of this kind of downfield screens. The chiefs were running with their wide receivers against the Texans were they're sending a slot out to block a quarterback. Five yards downfield is catching a little hitch urine to see stuff like that. You're GONNA see Kelsey working over the Middle of the field underneath a deep over to occupy two defenders like they're going to have some extra wrinkles that you've seen come throughout other games but it is just something worth noting because the chargers have been the best defense historically against Patrick Mahomes it's not even close. Yeah, and obviously missing Derwin James here is a massive deal for this chargers defense. There's just no real replacing the kind of weapon that he is. But yet, so that makes them even more likely to Kinda back off make sure they keep everything in front of them like there used to without playing the chiefs without Darwin, James It's very common occurrence unfortunately at this point, but they're used to getting letting their pass rushers get after Patrick Mahomes a little bit those guys give them fit and taking away everything deep now the chiefs have lacked the ability to take. Advantage of that in the past, like Matty said there, they showed a lot more movement of the ball in the intermediate and the short areas of the field against the Houston Texans in week one that's where pat operated the best. That's where they were able to come up with some of the more creative stuff. So I'm really looking forward to seeing a team that's kind of had a little bit of the chiefs number. You know the according to what? Matt said there with Patrick Mahomes, his lowest yardage totals yet. I'm looking forward to seeing how they adjust because I feel like andy is probably got some stuff dialed up here with collide with the adjustments at the that the charges are going to have to make year to try to take away what the chiefs can do best. We saw a little bit of it. I think we're. GonNa see even more this week against the chargers defense. It was a sign of growth from her home from the homes this week that he was so willing to take the underneath stuff take what the defense was getting I'm not getting too impatient with things. There's a lot to Hawaii about that and it what it led to was efficient that game was just a very efficient game in the run and pass game and. You know it. It's not the flashy kind of game that we're accustomed to here in Kansas City but I'm telling you it's equally as frustrating for teams. It's a different kind of helplessness that they're feeling if the chiefs can just continue to drive down the field without really any problem whatsoever it's not the sexiest way to score. It's not the fastest way to score, but I'm telling you it's it's it's exhausting and frustrating for fans of teams in defenses to have to try to do that. They try to get to if they get too impatient then all of a sudden that's when the shot play start happening guy start making mistakes that she's have players that they can capitalize and it looks like mahomes might have taken might have missed a couple of shots down the field this week to. Another key pieces game as always with a great charges front is how the chiefs are going to handle it in the trenches pass rush and run the football. Are they going to be able to do either it's going to be pretty important and I requested when to touch back on the shop place? That is something that the chiefs have not hit against the chargers since Mahomes I start of twenty eighteen it's been relatively underneath things occasionally trying down the field, but it hasn't been successful how you really opened that up run game a little bit did the Quick, passing it you success with the quick passing game, and then you start having success with the running game. If you see Colosio Assembly Austin Rider Eric Fisher, these guys make big run blocks they were against the Texans it picking up chunks you start getting linebackers that maybe spend that extra half a second in their stance before they start to retreat, you may get a safety who steps forward instead of stepping off and that's what you get the shot plays up over. So if the chiefs can dominate the line of scrimmage I, the run I think that's GonNa help a lot. This leads back into the ratio and everything like that. The chargers have a fantastic pass rush who Joey Bosa Melvin Ingram Jerry tillery showed a ton of good place this first week this year after a really bad rookie season for the hype that he got. So those guys are getting depend their ears backing it after the passer that's a lot of work. But if you start hitting some run plays, you slow them down the quick passing game slows them down a little bit too. A lot of things can intertwined here, but there's GonNa. Be. A lot of pressure on Eric Fisher whose historically struggled against Joey Bosa and the Mitchell Schwartz way don't think had his strongest game last week against the Texans but both pass protection aimed at run blocking to really step up give Patrick mahomes some time because if we see another game of two point, three seconds of the time to throw on average your Patrick Mahomes, I mean not that the chiefs can't win. You're really gonNA, see the dynamic part of this offense kind of little bit more if they give them some time to throw the ball downfield. and. That's part of the reason why mahomes hasn't had the kind of success against the chargers that you would expect based on what he's done against other teams, Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram have lived in that backfield they have given. Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher Eric Fisher especially fits. So that's a situation where mahomes meeting to protect himself especially last year was just going out of his way to get the ball out quickly this year we see against the Texas, he's getting the ball out quickly again, it's not necessarily from a protection standpoint. It's that the Texans were sitting back and giving them underneath things in quick out, you know your wide receiver screens, things like that. Let's see how the chiefs defense handles this defensive line because this is arguably one of the better defensive lines in the league. Joey Bosa little bit dinged up but it looks like he's GonNa play I'm very curious to see if Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz look good on the outside against Ingram and Bosa because they do. Then we can start to go forward with some serious confidence that this. Or that this offense is going to go some significant places all around run blocking pass blocking everything like this. This is the first major major matchup. Patrick. Mahomes asked if they had time to run WAAS. The byproduct of not having enough time is getting the ball out of your hands quick. So there's two things that can happen. MOMS can get the ball out of his hands in a timely fashion take with the defense gives you and just methodically drive down the field. or he can create after Air Fisher gets beat and he's rolling around trying to create make big place. The big splash plays you saw a lot of that 'cause mahomes was a little bit more impatient when he was younger, he was maybe got caught on some things a little bit more some of the reason, the the the fantastic plays you saw him creating sometimes it was just simply he had to. Mahomes, if he's taken the simple easy stuff getting the ball out of his hands, it's helping offensive line. It's helping them have success in the transit trenches. I players to watch. You Got Craig. I've got. Austin writer this week us for murder had a good week one go read Matty's article. He talks about the offensive Lineman a little bit. They're awesome writer had a good week one against a decent defensive line. Now he's got Jerry Tillery who liked Matt said looks like he's come alive. He's got limbaugh. Joseph. He's got Damian Square he's Got Justin Jones. He's going to match up against a lot of these guys that's not an easy rotation to have. To deal with over and over and over again especially when you're not going to get help, they're probably GONNA shift some protection to help those outside guys because they're more dangerous frankly. So I think that Austin rider is GonNa be on an island a little bit more and I think we're going to see him have to get the better of guys like Jerry Tillery, guys like Limbaugh Joseph. Those are tough matchups if he has a good game that's going to be big dividends for homes in the offense. I'M GONNA, go with Clyde Edwards? And I think that's probably a little bit cheap after his first week because he kind of took everybody say he took anybody but storm because I think everybody expected that but he was every bit as good is what everyone thought. But here's the thing. The Los Angeles chargers. Linebacker group especially now losing drew tranquil they don't have that athletic coverage linebacker. You'RE GONNA get collided with the Allaire lined up on Denzel, Perryman, and Kenneth Murray like that's free yards if they decide to use them in the passing game now, that's the big question. Here is how much are you going to get him involved in the passing game after week one because they only throw him what? To passes last week but this matchup is even better than Zach Cunningham was last week. This is a good place for him to come alive at the past the game and as a runner I, do think the cheese argus spend a little bit more time trying to run the ball the chargers sell out to stop the deep pass. You saw Damien Williams even have success against them with big chunk plays. So thinking dealer won't be able to set up Kenneth Murray. Who is prone to poor reads Denzel Perryman who isn't the most athletic linebacker I, just I think he could very easily have another big game and I would lean towards this week big a little bit more not even more just you see more involvement of him in the passing game than last week, and if they don't do that, then I guess Travis Kelsey would come across north. Whoever's lined up with these linebackers is GonNa have a lot of success against the chargers. She's had a lot of success in the in between the Hashes against those linebackers. The last time these teams player against in Mexico. They're killing in the middle of Field My guy is McCall hardman. Again, I'm banging that drum again because I need to know what's going on. With McCall Hartman moving forward I have to have an idea do does this coaching staff trust him? Is He. In this team's plans. Is he a week to week I want to understand what's going on with? McCall. Hardman is he last week? He got twenty eight percent of snaps. He got one manufactured touch and zero targets outside of that he was not he was nowhere to be seen. In Patrick Mahomes is what's happening. Let's find out this week. If he's part of that we we need to know Just. What what this guy is in early indicators is not positive. This is going to be if it's two weeks in a row I. started to get pretty worried about his role moving forward. Take a break. We'll be back to preview the defense right after this.

So your favorite podcast APP to be sure you don't miss a single episode All, we are previewing the defense three storylines on the defensive side of the football, and we start with the wide receiver matchups. Keenan. Allen and Mike Williams for the Los Angeles chargers. What is most likely to be legit area sneed the rookie and Rashad fit in the second year player in six round pick at the cornerback position which you think Craig I think we're all hoping that your various ward would be able to go even with a cask just because we thought that it would be the best line of that. They could put out there but it doesn't look to this point like charters going to be the Guy Ligier. Need is going to be able to be matched up against Keenan Allen in his second ever start. Keenan? Allen is a hell of a route runner. He's not necessarily the fastest guy on the field I he's not necessarily the most physically imposing guy on the field, but he will turn good cornerbacks inside out with its route running. Luxurious needs to get a baptism by fire, and then on the other end if the charters decide the lineup Mike Williams overshot Fenton, he is a physical specimen that matches up ridiculously well positively for Rashad Fenton a guy that should be able to tower over Fenton and be able to high point the ball over him and Kinda boss him with his physical traits. Now I think it makes sense to try and swap those guys gets need on Williams and Fenton on Keenan, Allen. But that's not the way it works that she's don't really follow especially with young guys. They don't really follow stuff and trying get coverages in favor. Of Their defense there. So in this regard I, think the chargers are going to dictate some of this. I am a little worried because I. think if the chargers come out in the had some success, it is going to be through these guys. If the chargers win this game, it's because Keenan Allen or Mike Williams went off this against US chief secondary here. So this is the spot that I am the most worried about of the chiefs defense right now I'm and I think it's worth noting legit sneed was very good I. The Texans but his best reps were working vertical because that's all that wide receiver group did. Keenan Alex Not a badger vertical, receiver Mike Williams has some vertical ability but where he wins at the catch point, which is entire, both these wide receivers are entirely different than anything Houston brought to the table Houston brought speed and we'll fuller flashes some ability to run some nice routes as long as it's in breaking. But keenan Allen, roads, great routes everywhere on the Field Bike Williams is one of the best receivers the catch. Points like this entirely new level of challenge for them. I think either way, Rashad Evans a not a world of trouble but like he's up for a huge challenge on the outside I, just trust needs athleticism What legitimate Steve did last week was better than anything I've seen from shot fin and that's not particularly surprising i. think he was just a much better prospect coming out. So I think fit is definitely the week. I think it's worth bringing up Antonio Hamilton to Keenan Allen Lines up in the slot a taunt he is a very active slot receiver. Antonio Hamilton, Tired Matthew obviously plays the slot a lot. But Tony Hamilton might get some outside reps and some slot Reps. he might succeed in Alan if I were to make ideal match ups for the chiefs, it is probably sleet on. Mike, Williams, just for that vertical ability and then I also think Antonio Hamilton on Keenan Allen's a better match than them even offense a little bit higher up on the depth chart. So there's definitely challenges coming out there because the chargers get a dictate these matchups big test for need if he shows up as good as dead last week than I mean cheese kingdoms going. Wrapped with hyper luxurious. Great route runner or catch point receiver after playing so well, that speed last week. I would prefer to see him up against that catch point receiver because lot more verticality locating the football jay steed shown to be better than anybody on the roster, the cornerback position at that. It's kind of interesting. Legitimate need is a very linear player I. Think. Similar to what are various ward is I mean obviously legit has long speed. I. Actually think he's a little bit better changing direction ability than. Various I still think it's like he has the most fluid hips necessarily for the position either. So I think it would be interesting to see him play. Tier one to one. Bet there he isn't. I'm very good athlete I'm not trying to I'm not trying to say he's not I wouldn't say. I think he's a little bit more rigid than than some other guys that's not a knock on him necessarily either it's just kind of who he is him and traverse has some similarities there in that in that regard. I would like to see him lined up against a vertical it would be maybe it'd be interesting to see him lineup against Keenan Allen and see what he's really made. It will be fascinating. Those matchups are going to be. Well, they're not really gonNA decide the football game they don't matter because tyrod Taylor's throwing the football. Shaky offensive line verse that she's Pass Rush. Frank Clark's licking his chops isn't he craig? Oh my goodness Frank Clark gives the line of opposite of Sam Tevi again. Are you kidding me who? Who blessed the chiefs pass rush with this gift? Oh. Wait the same. Franchise that's putting Chris. Jones against Dan Feeney yet again Chris Jones against Dan feeney four and a half sacks five tackles for loss and fourteen quarterback hits and five games. That's ludicrous. I. Know it sounds normal for Chris John. Chris Jones is a hell of a player, but that's spread out. He consistently beat Dan Feeney and the chargers try and take. Away Chris Jones when they face off against him because he's such a destructive force, we got to see what a healthy Frank Clark looked like last weekend and my goodness he gets to go up against a bad left tackle and Sam heavy. So Frank Clark is going to be a destructive force. Chris Jones is going to be a destructive force as it. It's over. That game of Front is already over in my mind tyrod Taylor looked awful under pressure last week the bingles were running simple a gap blitzes from their linebackers and it was causing all kinds of problems for tyrod Taylor who's floating pass in secondary. He was office spot constantly he was able to make some stuff happened with his feet a little bit but frankly, he was just off balance all week long and that was the bengals defense. Steve Spagnolo in the chiefs pass rush and the pressure packages are going to get good matchups. They're going to get free rushers and when they rushed for Chris. Jones and Frank Clark are going to dominate I. Think tyrod Taylor is going to be running for his life the entire day I think this is an awful matchup for the chargers offensive line. Is Good is the chargers defensive line is the chiefs is right there I. Think people kind of don't consider defensive end defensive tackle tandems is strongly as they consider to defensive ends for some reason, everyone knows how good Chris Jones is just the concept of a defensive defensive tackle together for some just aren't looked at as highly defensive ends for whatever reason. But the chiefs in line is right there and their offense of height is much better than the los. Angeles Sam tabby starting Dan Feeney starting it took four slant favorite of a lot of people for years. Now into the NFL before he could finally start. He played good. His first real game I. mean there's a reason that he was behind Dan Feeney for four years. Now bribe blogs. This is his third start ever. This is third start ever he was the thirty eighth overall pick bride blog is not is what he wants was trade. Turner. Is Bid up and down through a lot of his tree lately those two guys are new to each other. They're playing next to another new center like there's a lot of issues on the chargers offense of lights whether it's I Iran I Pass, I would not expect the even hold their own. I would expect to see something similar to what you saw from the Houston Texans oftens of line against the chiefs defensive line and similarly I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of pressures and a lot of exotic looks come out because tyrod. Taylor. Fold hard wood. He is pressured not even real precious would he doesn't know what's coming. He panics pretty hard pretty quickly he did against the Bengals from showing base pressure right up the middle he'll do it again. Verse Achieves I. Think this game could look really ugly. Because at least what the Texans Shawn Watson is extremely talented, he can somewhat keep you in the game if the offensive line isn't going great if you get that same level of mismatch up front for the chiefs, the chargers offense I think they struggled to pick up first downs, not just score points but just pick up first downs because it could be that bad for them. If it does happen though he did show some willingness to challenge down the field. So your be mindful of that he's got guys that can take. They can help capitalize on taking some of those shots. So that's where the cornerbacks could get tested he had he did show willingness to challenge down the field a little bit Okay. Last one on on defense we're going to find out if these linebackers have any rain whatsoever, Mattie. tyrod Taylor, he can still run he can still escape the pocket. He can still scramble a little bit. So if you flush out of the pocket, if they call a couple of desired runs, guys are gonNA, have to get out and chase after them I think you saw some contain issues. The chiefs had against the Texans with the Shawn Watson not terribly but there was some options there. You saw spy him a lot. I don't know if they'll dedicate Adorno Daniel, the spy tyrod Taylor I don't know if that's worth the play, but they might. But if not, you're GONNA see guys like Anthony Hitchens debuted Williams Beneema try to. Get out there trying to contain tyrod Taylor and deal with Austin cler ordeal with Josh, Kelley kind of getting out of the space in some of these outside runs and dealing with those guys in coverage off the necklace a guy who's had quite a bit of success receiving the ball, the chiefs that linebacker group in general hasn't been the best in coverage versus I think you're gonna see them challenge sideline to sideline by Taylor by by Hunter Henry Keenan. Allen all these guys attack that particular part of the field. It tired Matthews not out there covering for the linebackers I. Think it could be kind of like it wasn't week. Yeah. Austin cler has been targeted twenty three times over the past year. Against the chiefs, that's it just against the chiefs that is a crapload for over one hundred, fifty yards. He didn't catch any touchdowns or anything like that, and obviously the second performance was much better for the chiefs. The first one they got absolutely torched by Austin editor there. But that's a situation where the chiefs got beat up because their linebacking core was too slow to hang with guy like that Hunter Henry is very similar sort of situation where he's just gonNa live in the middle of the field. He's going to take advantage of some of that same with Keenan Allen coming across. On crossers. This is a situation where the chiefs lock of athleticism if they don't play one of their players is going to be really difficult for them to overcome. Josh. Kellyanne Austin actor against the bengals hit the cutback lanes hard the chiefs defensive line has to make sure they closed some of those because linebackers especially, the chiefs linebackers are terrible at picking up some of those cutback winds there. So they could get beaten a big bad way if the chargers can stay in this long enough to be able to run the ball, we'll talk about one of the linebackers here in a second. I. Think we're actually talk about too but I have one in particular We're GONNA see what leash these guys have to I think a little bit because there is some guy wait in the wings that really could you know he has range he can change directions he's not going to get his ankles broken and space. Players Watch Craig. Players to watch Frank Clark I think Frank Clark is going to have a multi sat game I think that he should have had one against. HOUSTON. And I think that the offensive line is worse than the one that he played against their. tyrod Taylor holds the ball a ridiculously longtime through the course of his career. He is right there with the Shawn Watson and with Russell Wilson for guys that hold the ball the longest in the league. If you guys remember Philip Rivers is one of these shortest time to throw quarterbacks in the league and this offensive line was built for Philip Rivers. They haven't made a ton of changes they haven't gone out of their way to try to add a bunch of guys to try and fit Justin Herbert the rookie quarterback or tyrod Taylor. It's still built for a quick passing game the quick passing game with tyrod. Taylor anymore. So I expect Frank Clark was a couple hustle sacks beaten up on Sam Tevi. To come out of this game with a multiple set game, I think it's a big one for frank clerk by go to watch I mentioned already I think safety hitches amid he's the guy that sets the front skulls lot of the plays for the chiefs especially in the front seven that's always important I don't think kitchens or Damon Wilson. Orbit Niemann had particularly strong first Games actually kitchens of the group might have been best for the simple fact that he. Wasn't egregiously bad any point in time, but I do he's GonNa have to make a couple of plays whether it's in the run game whether it's in the past game just picking up some shallow zone coverages I. DO think you're GonNa have to see one of these linebacker show up and make a couple of plays and right now I somehow feel the most confident it's going to be Anthony Hitchens. So He's the Gama to keep my eyes on the most. Cell Body in that second level is going to have to start making some place for the chiefs and I just Give be given every opportunity to do. So I think he's the guy that's GonNa make it happen because it's not the neither Damian Wilson this one time it's Willy Gay. Free Bill Gay Free Willy is right there on the table can't Hash tag free willy. The man is easily the most town player at the linebacker level bad football players are earning opportunities right now ahead of him I wanNA know how short the leashes I wanna know how short Ben Neiman's leashes because he wasn't particularly good last week and you've got a top sixty five pick waiting in the wings that could answer a lot of the questions that we've had about this linebacker core the last two seasons. Free Willy. Prediction Time Craig lead us off. This is going to be a slaughter I. I think that the chiefs are clearly the best team of these two I- Andy Reid is coming off a mini by the chiefs. Pass rush is going up against a bad offensive line I don't think that the chiefs are going to have to throw the ball much on offense because I think they're going to score early and they're going to jump out. To a big lead, and then when tyrod Taylor has dropped back to pass repeatedly, he is just going to get shell shocked I. Think I'm getting serious broncos, flacco vibes and the chiefs defense last year out of this game I think that this defense is going to be massive again I, know that we can point back to last week and they are unhappy with the way they finished that game. Win that game entered the fourth quarter. The chiefs had allowed seven points and they allowed the offense to get out to a twenty four point lead. This is a worse offense than that. I think they're gonNA step up I think they're going to finish the game thirty, one, thirteen garbage time points. Cheeks. With Craig here, I am trying to find a path for this chargers team to beat the sheaves team in having a really hard time sing anyway the chargers win it would take obviously injuries are about the only way that can come about because it would take the craziest meltdown of both Patrick mahomes Andy Reid, the entire defense starting from Steve Spagnuolo to let this chargers team beat them I think. This chargers team on the second level. I think while the secondaries good. Not Having Derwin. James. Definitely affects them, and then offensively outside of the two wide receivers like getting the ball, there's GonNa be an issue I. really don't see a path for the charges to be particularly competitive at the chiefs look like one of the best to three teams in the NFL pretty easily week one, it was a complete game. That they dominated pretty much the entire time everything looked easy. The only thing that gives me pause is Gus Bradley. The chargers Divas has eight the chiefs number so far. So without predicting fifty points against them, just because I don't know if they're gonNA completely solve that defense I still have the chiefs winning thirty one to seventeen and much like last week. That's a lot of garbage time points. Oh No guys. The AP nerd squads going to predict three blowouts. Oh No, this is terrible luck. It's not like they are on a three game winning streak or a four game winning streak doing that. There's no curse. There is nothing like that thirty seven, thirteen, your kids city chiefs are beating the brakes off the Los Angeles chargers. It's GONNA get ugly. And then next week they're going to beat the Baltimore Ravens again, we'll get there. Let's watch. Let's just win joy and watch week to we'll talk about that later. I'm already looking ahead I hope this team is but they're going to beat the brakes off the Los Angeles chargers and we will be back with the Arrowhead Pride Laboratory Post game show after the chargers getting guys. The Game Review.

How About An Update???

"He is going to be in studio with us. Nine hours John. Boy You Janke Fan. Yeah well he's got a Yankee podcasts. Somebody for the Yankees is standing up for this. I'm sayin' A and you know exposing the Houston Astros and what happened back in two thousand Seventeen Fiore's guy deserves a big old pat on the back of your if you see this guy a cup of coffee or something. Yeah if you're Brian van right or anybody with the Yankees. The Yankees should hiram at this point. I really this guy is gone. Indepth I mean you know he could probably we still signs now to pretty good. Yeah probably a good sign steeler. Yeah it seems like he's on top of it finger on the pulse as they say. Just like Jerry RECCO. What's happening Jarrett morning? Brought not by the Ray Catena Auto Group get the gift that keeps on giving during the season of Audi sales event at Ray Katina Audi freehold will start with the football. 'CAUSE it was one game we'll get to basketball in a moment but Jane the chiefs and the chargers last night in Mexico City not a great game by all accounts for Kansas. City's offense but in the end the defense did just enough to hold off. The chargers raiders takes the snap at his belt coming for him. They fade route nightside. God Soro Chen Texanol. Aw what are the biggest interceptions dirty dance chased. Shutdown Philip rivers four interceptions by rivers and his last two possessions as well. That was Mitch Holtus on chiefs radio. Twenty four seventeen the final score from Mexico. Patrick Mahomes at twenty three we are touchdown. Pass Travis Kelsey in the third quarter proved to be the difference as for rivers. He threw for three fifty three. How did touchdown but again the four I t's loom large? It could have been a couple more. He says really sucked to throw that last one day the game which I thought would have a repeat from last year. We're going to go for two or not but I imagine we were and and We've been set it on the sideline but for the last drive. Let's see if we can repeat it often. Hindsight shouldn't throw it did lead to attempts to pass attempts. Yeah well look at the age of the NFL. I especially if her guy his age and you just C- can't win games like that. You got to run the football. Especially against the Kansas City chiefs he should have throng thirty two passes. Yeah that's what he should have Ryan. They got more than one competent running back there. Too With Elvin Gordon back in Austin cler. I mean it's just a very very surprised at the in fact it was the game went the way that it did. Pickler had eight catches out of the backfield for over a hundred. He's done in La. I think Philip rivers done. They're not a question is you know he talked about reassessing everything but I. I would think that. The chargers have had enough and they're going to have to do something big because they're going into that new stadium with the La Roy Ramps. Yeah I mean he looked right. This is where your your Brady mcdaniels thing comes into play. But no he looked better health lot better last year. Things have changed this year. I mean he look cluggy aged five years in one off season. How about Cam Newton to La Newton? What are the panthers going to do? Now to Kyle Allen you know the things change pretty quickly in the NFL they do. Here's mahomes not great but a win is a win. Struggled in the past game As far as doing what we we would like to do. And so they have great pass rushers and so whenever they got just too far afield. I tried to take advantage and get first downs. They did get touchdown. Runs from La Shawn McCoy in Daryl Williams he was Andy Reid. The depict the O.. Israel proud of our defense for the job that they did today for takeaways. The guys that intercepted the football. I made all the difference in the world with the win. The chiefs are now seven and four on the season. The chargers falling two four and seven on the season. All right to your knickerbockers last night and the Guard can't play the highlights. Because we have Mike Breen with the. MSG Can't hear him because of the crowd noise. Yeah so we'll just do a lot of the post game settlements last night on the broadcast broadcast that is becoming. It's not even just. MSG A lot of these TV network. You can't hear the announcers it's almost like they're not mixed right. The crowd is to that. The parabolic Mike's up too to loud perhaps but it's become away. Maybe they're trying to say. Hey this is a great place to come and watch the game because listen to the crowd or even Fox for NFL. Sundays has the a problem like some Michigan. He Bucking Aikman over the crowd. So I don't think it's just them Knicks wound up winning one. Twenty three one five four one of the year back to back wins. Julius randle thirty points seven rebounds he says the blow it lost of the cavs. Last week was fresh mind was bid for US You know they came in you know really smacked US last time we were here homecourt but It was big like you said we want to protect the guard and protect homecourt. Here's David because that's the Julius randle that we thought we were signing. They you know you got to see what he can look like when he's really locked in and just plan game as it comes to more he says team did a good member Remember last week we were talking about when they lost the Bulls. Fidel came out and talked about the speed. We can't handle that speed when all the players are still talking about speed. I gotTA turn my mic. Last night. They handled handled today. Darius Garland Colin Sex and much better on our guys really took the challenge tonight against Colin in Darius regards as he called them Frank Ntilikina. How did you guys do that team? Defense working working pecan roll being aggressive. Stepping can now to Denied every them Marcus. Morris at twenty three points RJ Barrett fifteen. You'll aquinas six assists series Barrett. He likes the effort of the club. We've been really good basketball. Walk past three games now and we just kept today still bitter know today. We know they came in here last time. So we took basically the voice for a nineteen year old. Yeah I know he does just wait till he's like thirty and now Anthony Impalpable Anthony. What's happening brother four? Go recco what is Asia is up. Aunt me hey I know what's going on with the chargers you know what's going on what Gio pick them to go to the Super Bowl I did. Did you say Atlanta and the charge you picked Atlanta last year for the super. No I didn't issued all. Yes you did New Orleans last year and I pick Orleans you picked up. I picked on the lean side the NFL you picked it landed. I remember we can get the audio said. They're going to be the first team ever talk host dodgy. Nobody cares about your first team ever to host a super bowl at hind ever said. Oh we will find that. Why what does that have to do with this year? Because here's here's what up Anthony from Belleville brought it up. Why you up the Falcons? He brought up the chargers. Because we're all wrong. A massive amount of hot. Yes you are just as wrong as everybody else as you try to hide it. That's trying to hide anything I've picked. I've picked the Patriots. It's every year since two thousand and one. This year you got to write this year. You did a nice job but I decided not to go chalk and blow up in my face. Well that that's the thing I if you don't go chop while you call chalk and your teams make it then you can look back and say wow look what I what I picked you know but I mean I just try to pick the best teams. I think that are going to be there at the end of the year. Booms dom how to the thank you I appreciate it. Nets lost to the Pacers. One fifteen eighty six no kyrie irving with the shoulder. Aaron Holiday with twenty four points and thirteen assists his brother. Justin holiday. Twenty four points are other twenty points on six of eleven shooting years. Kenny Atkinson Terrible. We weren't very good tonight and when that happens you know it's it's a much like Phoenix you know it's a it's a thirty point difference so so fix it because it was awful. Here's Jared Allen not always easy to turn the page these these type is tough. He's awesome desert quarter so our we played hard and he started getting back into the game stuff to let these got embarrassed in the second and the fourth quarters in the second quarter outscored. Forty one to seventeen clippers and culture though they do a good culture and they're gonNA last year they were terrible and they turned it around they will turn ended around again. And I'm surprised you like any Atkins Reputa- I'm Chuck in Oakland New Jersey Chucky. What's Atman yeah how how you doing? I'm ABC living. You brought up about the problem on the broadcast Because I have it all over my cheap. TV causing additional no problem with my wife. Because I'm watching the game in bed and I have to turn the satellite or that she turn it up. He's right. That's my m glad you guys brought it up and I think it should be brought up to the ask. Chuck you know what you can get your headphones but if you have a cheap TV that's not gonNa work you gotta get a New TV with some Bluetooth headphones phones. I Clippers beat the thunder ninety. Two eight Paul George the go ahead three with twenty five seconds left. Luca Danni Forty two eleven and twelve assists mavericks. beat the Spurs one. Seventeen one ten Karl Anthony. Towns had seven three scored twenty nine T. Wolves over the jazz has won twelve one. Zero two bucks beat the Bulls won fifteen one zero one coyote shut out the kings three nothing and the capital's beat the ducks five to right wrong or indifferent. The reason as we're talking about this though is because of Garnet hathaway who got into a little bit of scuffle if you will and wound up spitting on the opponent. He says after remember in the movie a League of their own. But Donna's character they were looking for some publicity they pulled apparently speeches. Flies out of this guy's mouth is. He will tell US Philip. There was a couple of sucker punches thrown and I go in there quick and then react emotionally and you know. Unfortunately you know spit came out of my mouth after. He took lunch and wounded him. Speak just game out of my mouth. Yeah you spin on them badly just them that is to suspend them a long time. Yeah that was brutal. That was almost as bad as a Louis. I know these excuses uses tell but you see that Prince Andrew. Yesterday I don't sweat God were on those airplanes with Jeffrey Epstein. and You I know you were guy said there was this report about you. Were dancing with a minor and you were sweating so you know what's interesting about that. Actually I I have a medical condition it says. I don't sweat us so where that report came from. Not a sweater. What we're believe it doesn't need was claiming that he has some sort of PTSD tst now that was sexually transmitted disease? PTSD STD's no. Wow whatever that's a big difference. Whatever the difference on the sweating remember when Brandon was here? That one day Brandon Tierney. Aw was soaked at six. Oh three yeah that's like I mean drank like network network to what you had to stop. You couldn't even talk to them. Are you okay sookie. jean-michel died the night before I was unfortunate right right exactly. And he's a huge Yankee Fan. I think that that really sweat I I something. He says he said stick about fifty times. I it affected him tonight. The devils take on the BRUINS ON RADIO DOT COM. You've got the islanders skating in Pittsburgh and I just give you a couple of names play game while the famer off aw. Jj How is this for anything. I I don't know Andrew Bogusch came over. He's your from. CBS Sports Radio. He made a great point it goes. Jj puts wouldn't be in the hall of Fame Team Played For. Yeah we'll put him in the baseball hall of fame. No no offense. Jj Puts Nice career not very offensive. I think you're saying it. I mean he didn't make no no. It's not offensive once again. Just because you say someone's not a hall of Famer doesn't mean they weren't good player in so it's not an insult boomer to say you weren't hall of fame. Thank you ray. Player Hall of fame got. Everybody does so anyway. Oh wait that's that's the game could do more. But he was here with the mets. Everybody hated him. It would be funny J. Poets Jose Valverde. Why didn't remember until it would be better? I guess the big question is Derek. jeter a unanimous acclaim. Sasha he's not going to be able to you know think so now I mean that's because because he was fat remember. Listen you fat you at one point. Yeah I know Allen Tom Izzo keep bringing fat gio back back in his little five team parlay that fine well here. We don't bring him back as fat Gio like this week. He was moustachioed Geo when he only had the mustache that was in his heavier days. Okay that's fine. Only problem with our like our podcast page picture that I asked him to change fifty million times. Does that know what every time I ask somebody else is it is it is okay is oh do that. He says he can't. It can ask Ryan out here. Do you have a photo. That has a picture of a guy. He's talked to picture I don't allow. He's got himself from to argue nude. It's better photo. There was one of the articles in the last couple of weeks. Had you as a heavy guy. I couldn't come up with a better. Piguet article was that. I don't remember we talked about. There was just one about the station and they had a picture was and it was something like like that but it was a picture from two years ago my ass. I got eighty station Chum.

When this all gets shaken out and settled Geo Ni- we'll have nothing to talk about?

EMERGENCY EPISODE Hopkins TRADED, Hooper MAKES BANK, Teddy LEAVING??

"What I'm snapback FEM. Rapid Reaction Pod crazy news even our just taxation we saw Hopkins got traded. We want to hop on a ton of tagging being done all that stuff. So we'll dive into everything we've heard up to this point and react live on this podcast. Let's get it the Baltimore Ravens. Select Lamar Jackson. Marine is all all you every detail talk Philadelphia Long over Bryant about them Jackson STABEX on snapchat. Join me today. And as always is my cozinne longtime best friend Amy Grant off Abe? What the Hell did did bill o. Rien just do bill O'Brien. I'm happy to see that. They have not shut down liquor stores in Houston Texas because Bill. O'brien is locked in his office. Right now drunk as Shit texting. Gm's Yo you up because he just traded the best. Wide Receiver in football probably. I mean you could beat him in Michael Thomas all you want. But there's an argument for both four one of the worst contract for running back and David Johnson and had to take on and had to give up picks so this is in my mind the worst trade in NFL history. But I also thought about I also thought about had some very rapid reaction will. That's the point but also thought about an a different way so bill. O'brien has what he takeover the GM role last last year. This time whatever it was since then he traded God knows how many pets I forget for Laremy Tunsil and now. He decided to trade his best player on his team. Who was paired with his franchise quarterback which we can agree to Shawn Watson. Well maybe not you. But he has. He has hints of moments. Where you think okay. This guy can take us to a super bowl. It's not even it. All traded their exactly franchise quarterback but he trades his best player. This is actually a chess. Move on Bill O'Brien's part out of town just so nobody would want that. Gm Job in the future. He's a genius. Says having the Shawn Watson his pretty valuable even if how Pistons? Hey greatest quarterback Shawn Watson. I waiting for the tweet to load. He is about to freak out like that's like I. I believe they're good friends. They always seemed to have a really good relationship so he is going absolutely freak out. I've the Texans move was announced I by acquiring David Johnson. I thought for whatever. It was a fifth rounder. I thought it was a pretty solid deal. They get David Johnson who can still be a good player. He's a big time upgrade over Duke Johnson in terms of a passing back or receiving back But then they dropped the D hop news on the flipside. Unbelievable move for the cardinals. You got a franchise quarterback now you have a top three wider even the league. Larry Fitz coming back. Kenyan drake was spectacular at the end of last year in that system. I mean the cardinals and that division is always so just be up like everyone's always so good in the cardinals have been getting the burn end of the stick lately but now that is incredible for them they obviously have to build that O. Line and defense. But you loved about this thing about this De'andre Hopkins in an air raid offense so my initial thought was obviously bill. Brian is out of his mind. I'm watching Marcus Spear on. Espn right now. But he's on mute and I just saw his hands like making explosion out of his head. I assume that's where we're thinking the same thing but the my initial thought was this. Okay bills drunk. That's cool. It's a Monday afternoon My second thought was okay. Maybe this is kind of good for the Eagles because I look where our Zona cardinals are. Drafting at eight and. I assume that they would pick up a Jerry Judea. Cd LAMB or a Henry rubs at that spot. But now they are gonna like the under Hopkins and you think okay. Maybe they'll move not draft one of the receiver so one might be able to follow the eagles. But now I'm thinking Holy Shit. What if they pair CD lamb with the Audrey Hawkins? I mean I didn't even mention the fact. The Christian Kirk is still there and Christian Kirksey unbelievable so I think that offense is GonNa be absolutely Leeann. They won't they still have to receiver will they? I mean I know. Kingsbury loves his air raid fourteen receivers but no I just they. They've got to build on the back end that there's no doubt they need that it. It's crazy to think that to Shawn Watson who was everyone's saying the future of the NFL. There are people out there his weapons next year or Kenny stills and three games a year from Willfuller because we all know he won't be there. Yeah I another big move. The Dolphin Sign Eric Flowers Three YEARS THIRTY MILLION L. Oh well that's hilarious. He's like literally one of the worst players in the league And then awesome hooper sets the NFL NOT NFL record. He becomes the highest paid Tom. For the Cleveland Browns. Yeah I'm just reading a bunch of twitter of Tech Texans slander and it's pretty hysterical right now but yeah. I already see Austin Hooper being met fancy fantasy pick that everyone reaches four in the second or third round. Just because he's in the browns offense and you're going to be hearing a lot about that hype just like we did last off season. But I mean this is just completely neglecting the real issues that it's a very brown's esque move right. We all knew the issues. They have with their offensive line and they go out and say screw it. Let's make worst guy. One of the highest position players at his position paid players at his position if not day. I'm also seeing the second. Round tendered Kareem Hunt. And they still have no offense. I Love I love the move though. I mean that offense is going to be lethal. They have hunt Chubb. Hooper Odell juice if Baker can't get it done. I know the align is a problem but like come on those wet much of an upgrade. How much of an upgrade is an Austin Hooper over a fully healthy David Joko? Though well he wasn't healthy but also who was the best tight end in football second best tight end football last year. So it's definitely an upgrade joker was solid but it is definitely an upgrade. Listen to this between the Laremy Tunsil. Judean clowney and Deandre Hopkins Straight. The Texans received Laremy Tunsil. Kenny Stills David Johnson Jacob Morton Bahr Bark alias Mingo a second of third to force and six and just for that they had to give Davian cloudy De'andre Hopkins a corner named Johnson Batum Mosey Julian. Dave import two first round picks and forth they shipped out. Clowney Hopkins and two first round picks. If I'm a Texans Fan I just don't know what to do at this point like bill runs gotta go I'm also hearing potentially teddy bears to fire him. He's the GM while the owner cam but Teddy Bridgewater to the bears is a heavy heavy room right now. Serving bottom line. This is what's going on with the Internet. I just read a bottom line that said saints and Bridgewater Open to a deal. Really okay that that would make no sense. In my opinion it would value because they WANNA keep What's his face as him hill? They were to him. But he's not quarterback so I wonder how that would work out in Chicago. It does bridgewater become the Sardar. Do they try and put him through? Comp? Qb COMPETITION. That'd be very intriguing Speaking of other big quarterback moves the cowboys decided to Franchise Tag Dak Prescott. Look here's the deal. Dak Prescott is not a top. Five quarterback in that valley doesn't deserve top-five money but he's a top down winner in that fell and he actually has a pretty solid quarterback. He's not an elite. He's not average. He's right in between that area along with some other so they decide to pay. Zeki Elliott and running backs don't matter and lesser receiving back like Austin cler. They're going to probably pay Amari Cooper. They're gonNA let Byron Jones. Walk and they're going to have a quarterback franchise tagged. It's absolutely asinine. What Jerry Jones and that organization continues to do I WanNa rewind a little bit you said Dak Prescott is a top ten winner in the NFL. Can you without a net on that without a doubt lays knifing? Was they face off? Line Basov wind since he's been the league. He's been a a very winning quarterback like just look at the numbers year definitely couldn't win the worst division in Football Azure. Yeah he he lost that division by one game he played Bat in one game. There's no doubt about that but look at all the rally bad in one game I'm saying he you didn't get over the top and that one but look past three years. He is a proven. Winning regular season quarterback top ten league for seizing got. It got it got one Paul. He does have more playoff wins. Bring him up does him as well when he beat Seattle two years ago so more than Carson Wentz got all right moving on the Titans tag der Cannery Which? I don't hate because tyrod Matthews pretty upset saying that he lighten the load for Tanny in the playoffs and Tanai pay. But you can't pay running backs unless they're receiving back also like Austin Echo or so. I don't I don't hate the move with Derrick. Henry I think Melvin Gordon. He's GonNa have to walk because he's not a receiving back like Austin heckler. So that's just my opinion on the situation do feel differently. I can't wrap my head around. Paying Derrick Henry and Ryan tannehill combined forty five million. That is that is just with Tannehill or Henry. Actually I mean what's the tag on a running back? I think it's around ten point. One ten point two million. I mean he gotTA assume that Henry probably would have gotten that on the open. Market the franchise tag makes no sense to me. I want to leave my job and they can physically say nope you have to stay here for year. That makes no sense to me it. It the reason it makes sense is because they literally will give you the most amount of money in the League in getting what thirty three million dollars right which isn't like I get it onto that long term stability but like you do the reason they say can say is because no one can give you more because this is the Max. Nfl NFL twitter's blow in terms of the players is blowing up about this Derrick Henry Tag. Because they can't you know they're all about player empowerment and playing get players in the nanny and they can't wrap their head around the fact that this guy was just the leading rusher singlehandedly carried them to an AFC championship game and is getting the stiff end of a short term deal when the guy who who threw the ball sixteen times. I understand as a quarterback. Don't get me wrong and you have to lock those guys up. He whether that's Ryan Tanno or not. But they can't wrap their head around Derrick Henry getting the stiff ad and like I'm not I would never wish injury upon anyone but like you think about it. This guy's playing on a one year deal. Will he show up when he was just the? Nfl leading rusher and risk that injury when he's set to get a long term deal next year all that comes in the plane and the promise. Who's giving him a long term deal you would like to think there is no market for Melvin. I don't know how many teams out there they've been listening to the POD. They know you don't pay but this is a this is a this is a the NFL's or what have you done for me lately. We all knew that Derrick Henry Louis backpack it doesn't matter but the but yes it is but no running backs have gone money since Zeke did at the beginning of last year. I think GM's are catching up to the fact that you can't just give money away. Two running backs. Yeah just just. Wait until Melvin. Gordon signed somewhere. That he's not going to get a big deal at all. I would've I'll bet you on that. You think you'll get more than the tag. He'll get more than ten million a year. I do know no shot no shots. We'll say I think you will. How can you? How can you tell me that you couldn't see that happening when you're watching bill bill? O'brien is doing right in front of your face literally because possible. I mean because I'm just giving you my insight and my opinion of that. He's not going to get more than two million a year. I would say seventy eight at best more twitter info. The deandre Hopkins was unhappy with this contract. Three years of forty million Texans weren't GonNa fix it so they trained to the cardinals who will have a chance to renegotiate it. Aaron Foster who played for the Texans also tweeted. Ll Bill O'Brien is drunk Moving on though errol's did he. Did he credit me? I said to her that this while recording the podcast is not live. It will be live. So when did he tweet that what minute? Eight minutes ago I said it. I okay. I'm proud to you Tara. So airing foster is hacked into our network right now. What's up the Bangles Franchise tag? Aj Green Joe Borough Joe Mixon. Aj Green Auden Tate. John Ross. Coming back I for it. If he ever gets healthy not the worst kind of set of weapons for bang offense. Obviously they need a line and then defense out. But that's that's that's yeah that's five wins six the bank get a lot of a lot of hate and it's because of Marvin Lewis and like people don't like Andy but they had a few good years where they are relevant. Yeah they won. What ten games like come on everyone can fall? Everyone randomly has that one year where they fall into ten games and no one sees it coming. They went down Silas. Don't don't say that don't say the bengals get a bad rap there notoriously one of the cheapest organizations and football. They kept one of the most average coaches around for about ten extra years. They do not care about winning whatsoever at that organization they just WanNa escape collected. Check that being the owners and just Costa Long while owning NFL team. I don't blame him that that's awesome. That's fun to do. But the rest of the league other than the Texans are trying to win. So that'll that'll get you five wins. Six wins Matisse Thighbone Tobias Harris going back and forth on twitter that's pretty much all we got in terms of rapid reaction. Hopefully I mean. The giants tagged Leonard Williams. The Vikings tagged Anthony Harris the Kirk cousins we did say last night. We're GONNA be a kirk cousins pod. He gets a nice extent out. You said you said that which more importantly saved them ten million cap space so that was a big move for them and then the steelers tagged Bud Debris. Oh final one. The Falcons released devante Freeman. I mean two time Pro Bowler and this guy is literally there's going to be limited market for him he's probably GonNa sign for what three four five million if that three. Yeah it's GONNA be. I think it's going to be a good bargain. Potentially that was another incompetent move. Today the giants gave up multiple picks to go get Leonard Williams. Only place a franchise tag on him but it up. Leonard Williams for multiple years. I mean they dubbed themselves a hole that they're trying to dig out of. It's just it's always fun to see really really stupid moves in the NFL. And I almost forgot that. There's no sports on for the past twenty minutes there. We go all right. At least we kept everyone entertained including yourself snapback fem. We will continue to churn out the content. We promise hopefully we're going to talk to the White Mamba Tonight which we will release. Maybe tomorrow maybe on Thursday depends if we do ranked we will see but before we hang up. Yeah he's check twitter because someone just wrote in my group message is it. Bridgewater is bridgewater. Let it is. They're working on a deal with Chicago. My God Jack signed me up for the open quarterback competition between Teddy. No knees Teddy. Loves AND OUR BOY. Mitch sign me up. Yeah we might have to go to training camp just to check in on that. Tb All my God that's gotta be. Is it official at say? I'm not seeing anything. That's official yet current. He's currently working on the deal. So it seems to me about twitter though with the latest. Tweet what are you a Top tweets version latest tweets. I it depends on the situation but late. Us usually. I'm actually top but in a situation like this. I just feel like latest because top top. You don't get like the bottom of the line beat writers that may have some information that were closely with the teams but they don't have the biggest following just because these low level beat writers but they do have the connections so I tried to go to latest true teddy about the land in Chicago. Pushing Aside Mitch. Trubisky and ending the worst draft decision. Recent memories take intro biscuit over. Holmes and Watson at is tough but bite on let. Let's silver lining out for bears fans because they will not if you said it's what have you done for me Lately League right? And if Mitch had done that season with the bears the one where they double doing against you guys and then he was up for a contract. They would have signed him to a full franchise quarterback young. They would have been stuck with him so the city of Chicago. Has Cody Parkey to thank right? Cody Parkey essentially saved the bears franchise which is ironic. But I think that's how we should go. I just saw tweet about the Houston deal. Had No one. Not even the Astros saw this coming love some good Asher state. We will catch you. We don't know him. But maybe so make sure you subscribe. Charity friends. If they're bored much love peace of a fan for life.

Today we're going to be doing our recap of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, game? That whole mess. As. Well as going over kind of the repercussions of that game, which happened to be a big injury to rb one Austin Necker, which quite frankly is just awful. and. When When things are starting to hit the fan man like. Wow when it rains, it pours the hits, just keep coming and I think this is something where we may have to just be. Okay and I don't know how we can ever be with half our team being unavailable by the time. The first four games of the season goes by which is. Man, which is absolutely unheard of and how there isn't an ESPN thirty for thirty film about the chargers injuries through the two thousand, ten's or at least the late the second half of the two thousand ten's is beyond me 'cause I've watched that I'd be incredible pain while watching it but I'd still probably watch it. It's just absolutely insane. With you know again, it's a quarter of the season by and there's only. Half. Of the starters originally projected starters still alive and well, we may get a few of them back this week they're not all on I are. We'll get a couple more. Back. After this game against the saints and that's when the you know the schedule lightens up and hopefully there's some form of a push but. All right. We're kind of getting ahead of ourselves. I don't want to start rambling in without. I know without a second thought. So guys, the chargers lost thirty, one, thirty, eight to the Tampa Bay buccaneers and I, don't know that's such a stupid thing like I hate when those games happen because we've seen these games before right over and over and over again where they're up by a lot they blow will lead and afterwards you're like. Man I don't know how they lost, but it's like you just saw them do it, and then you remember you've seen them do it. Quite. A few more times prior. But you just keep letting yourselves fall back into this trap in and I I'm doing my best to be positive and look on the brighter side, find the silver linings and all that stuff, but you can only do that. So often right like. Really you can, until your mental state goes Ari. They had a seventeen point lead. Before the half just making sure I'm not speaking on my ass here. They were up twenty, four, seven, twenty, four to seven with a minute and a half left in the first half. And then obviously, what transpired was the botched handoff between Justin Herbert Josh were Kelly. was on the compounded by Dan Feeney and the offensive line getting the tail whipped, which led to endemic sue literally hitting Kelly within a fraction of a second after he finished receiving set hand off from Justin Herbert to wear like the ball wasn't loose and I want to stress this too guys like the ball wasn't coming out it wasn't loose like if they had proper blocking I fully believe this from the Geico of play I believe Kelly would have been able to snag the football and make sure that he had it secured prior to like. The play really beginning but the fact that he couldn't even get an arm readjusted to cover the football before sue was in his face eating his lunch. That's just an indictment of the offensive line but again, it's routine play it should never happened. It have perfect from the start I. Understand that don't get me wrong completely understand it was a complete botched by the team. It was an all round efforts for that frustrating event to happen. But you know the rest you know a few plays later they hit my Gavin's for six yard touchdown pass all of a sudden. It's twenty four to fourteen. Still have a ten point lead at halftime but you would have been hard pressed to find anybody who was confident at that point right? Like a ten point lead. If that fumble didn't happen unless you say they fought hard and they they naturally went into halftime with a ten point lead. You probably would have felt better than the ten point lead that they actually gave us right And then they come out a charters, get the ball to start the second half, which might goodness could you have imagined if they sustain that that seventeen point lead and then went down and scored again to make it a twenty four point lead. How insane would that have been right Golly. That would have been absolutely insane I think that maybe would have put the game away but again, this team is what it is and and you just never know like nolita safe until the clock ticks zero that's kind of the mentality that I've had to take. In cling to with this team. I give my wife all the time saying you have the lead like you're fine relax and I've never relaxed I. Don't think I have ever been comfortable with the lead. I don't I don't know how long years. Years I can't tell you the last time I felt comfortable lead. Doesn't matter who were playing what's going on never. The chargers ended up going three now to start the second half. Then, we've just got towards. The chargers defense ended up getting tourist a twenty eight yard pass from Tom Brady to OJ Howard over the top of Kaiser White. Closed the gap to three points twenty, four, twenty, one chargers with about the middle of the third quarter on that play, they ran a four verts concept with Cameron break and OJ. Howard to the right side. OJ Howard ran up the seem. Camera break up the right side line. From, the film that I've seen in looks like they're in covered to man. So everyone of the second level. And you're outside corners. They're all in man coverage but you've necessarily and a race Sean Jenkins back deep to take whatever the deepest route is. And at that point. Your stressing each safety because of its four verts right. Then you've. got a man on them, but the safety net choose which one is going to be more dangerous than help with. And Casey Hayward was on camera right on the outside. It was oh Jay Howard against your white who's been picked on the last two or three weeks in coverage and for whatever reason. Sean Jenkins scrapes over the top of Howard. Butt continues to go towards the sideline looking like he's trying to help over the top with came and break. But OJ Howard is a much more superior athlete to Kaiser Your White and white no slots of an athlete but Howard put together a hell of a performance at the NFL combine the guy can run. and. He just Outran Kaiser White for an easy pitch and catch twenty eight yard touchdown from Brady. So all of a sudden it's twenty four, twenty one. The chargers. Remind myself of this before. I. Go nuts here. There was a missed field goal. By Michael Badgley. So they get the ball back have a three point lead. All, the way down the field get stopped at the Tampa Bay thirty six. Now actually read the twenty two I totally spaced on this as well. Are The twenty, two and Justin. Herbert. Hits Keenan Allen for nine yards for a first down, it would have been. First and ten at Tampa Bay's thirteen. But there was absolutely ticky Tack Chop Block where Levante David blitzed in the air gap. And Justin Jackson with low to cut blocking great cut block right? It was perfect whatever. But Force lamp came off a double team. And saw David Kinda going in his peripheral and was like Oh, hell, I have to go get him but he didn't realize Jackson was there to get him. So he comes off and right as Justin Jackson makes contact with Devante Labonte David's lower body four slam kind of puts his hands on him and he's not it wasn't a hit. It wasn't like an actual or attempted to block he just of did it and realize that the last second the no, I don't need to do this but his hands touched David. and. So basically because then that was contact on lower body while also on top with two different, you know a blockers David, they're going to call that chop block it was very ticky tack but if it was quite a Bang Bang play into the rest we're going to call I am not pierce the did it because I believe they should have it's still maybe I would like them to exercise a little more caution I don't know but screwed the pooch there. There are backed up all the way to the Tampa Bay thirty seven second two. Couldn't do much about it. They gained I believe eight yards, the next two plays, and from the Tampa Bay twenty nine Badgley misses a forty seven yard field goal wide left. So, what could have been twenty seven, twenty one? St At twenty four twenty. One. Searching to stream next HBO Max is where all of HBO meets the Greatest Collection of movies, shows, and Max originals for everyone in the family.

And this is what good teams do. It's called sudden change when there's a turnover on downs, an actual turnover like interception or a forced fumble whatever it's called sudden change in the southern change offense is you want to go for the deep ball you want to shock them right with with deep shot. Following a morale depleting play like a turnover. It took Tampa Bay two plays to go. What was it sixty three yards both passes Scotty. Miller. I play after the turnover on downs. He Hits Gotti. Miller up the left's. Excuse me for forty four yards just got the best of Casey Hayward. Fast Guy if you guys didn't know. So I'm not surprised. He beat hayward like bed. Does Hayward's a cornerback. Second play hits Gotti Miller again, Nineteen Yard touchdown pass. So, just like that, it's twenty, eight, twenty, four could be twenty eight. Twenty seven. But there was the missed field goal. So, the charter actually respond. This was fantastic. Only, took them three plays to go seventy, five yards fifty two seconds total. Three plays after a short pass key. Now, three yards and incomplete passes to canal again on second seven. Jalen Guidon beats his man vertical on a cover zero blit. So it's man across the board. There is no deep safety. Jalen guy gets step on him. Herbert with pressure in his face retreats. Kind of just one of those Patrick Mahomes step back to by himself fractions of a second right to get off a deep pass and he lets loose hits guidance stride. The guy stumbles behind him the defender on Guyton. And he pretty much his jobs into the end zone. So. All of a sudden. It's thirty, one, twenty, eight charges or backup things are looking great. Well the bucks had. Something else in mind seven, place seventy, five yards took off four minutes of the clock. Went. down. Hickey Sean van for nine yard touchdown where he caught at short of the end zone I. Think he bowled over Mike Davis for the touchdown just. been getting beat by the running backs in the passing game but they've been getting lucky because the running backs were dropping those passes. This was not one of those situations. Joe had a bad day catching the ball same thing with Shawn McCoy. Von made the chargers pay. So all of a sudden it's thirty, five, thirty one. Charge in the next drive three now. Herbert sacked three yards. Scrambles back for four yards. So it's thirty nine. And he hits Josh Kelley for eight yards and Kelly when airborne right to try to get this first down. And just barely did he was a yard short right? If it wasn't Levante David coming over to stop Kelly he may have gotten this first down but David's and all pro player he knew how handle Kelly flying through the air so he stopped short. This was the play that the world thought Anthony. Lynch should've gone for him. It's a fourth and one at their thirty four. This is the moment that he preaches for right after the. First game against the bengals re said he'd be damned if they don't go or they don't get another short yardage fourth down the rest of the season, right? And so far they've been much better at it. They've gotten the short first downs. There was a fourth one fourth inches that they converted earlier this game I still don't understand why they don't do a quarterback sneak. I'm just GONNA throw this in there. Tom Brady is the king a quarterback sneaks I. Don't know if he's had the best the most elite offensive line, but somehow they're able to turn out those yards when they need it like on-command. Do you know how valuable of a tool that is for an offense to continue drives to not fear third and one fourth in ones because they know without a shadow of a doubt that they're going to get it? It's insane. Justin herber six, six, two, hundred, and forty pounds on a great day. You'd like to think they'd be able to get yard and again this was a tough tough defensive front. But I think it's an indictment on what Lynn thinks of the offensive line. That he wouldn't trust them to grind out those inches needed for Justin Herbert to then try and get that extra yard you know. That's just my feeling I. think it's tough. Anyway this was where Anthony Lynn probably should've gone for it again you know they look back at the chiefs game, he punted in overtime. and. Then he got a bad rating like there was a surrender index. I don't know if you guys ever heard of this, but it's a a company or some platform that measures how. Bad decision is in the in the late game. You know how much probability that you gave away to win the game by not going four on fourth down sort of thing, and this was one of the worst decisions Utai Week. So, they go upon it. and. There's. A ton of time on the clock honestly. So there's nine minutes on the clock. So Anthony. Lynn thought his defense could get a stop. They hadn't got to stop the entire second-half. Literally the entire second half but for whatever reason he felt confidence. In lending his defense go to work. What ended up happening was the buccaneers went on a twelve play seventy, two yard drive that took six full minutes off the clock. And ended in touchdown. Excuse me I'm wrong about that rhinestone two, thousand, six, hundred field goal to make seven point lead. So to force the chargers to a have to score, but the score only gets you tie. Charges get the ball back. Throw short passes Justin Jackson three yards timeout. On the next play just in Herbert sailed pass to Keenan Allen. Deep right side of the field. Carlton Davis Intercepts it. Game over. I don't know. What he was thinking. I think he tried to floated over the top because there were some secondary members in front of Kim now was breaking in I. Don't know if it was like a skinny post or a dig but. A bit him in the ass let's just be honest. This unfortunately, well, actually and I'll put it this way. This I think was the least damning interception that Justin Herbert has thrown at this point. He's throwing three interceptions. This was his third. And the difference between the panthers interception the chiefs interception was that. You know those actually hurt the team. Like the momentum during the game, right like put them back much earlier. And when they were still doing well like the charges were doing well against the chiefs, the intersection was a little backbreaking. Against the panthers they had been doing well at all but they were kind of find some momentum and it was frustrating interception. But. Those were closer games. This game was not close. And there was a complete meltdown, the defense. That led to the chargers just in her Rabin put in a position where they had to score on a game winning drive. Potentially, you know a game ending drive. and. The moment enforcing just got the better of Justin herber but. All I can look at is they shouldn't have been in that position in the first place I. Think the drive should have been one potentially to just round the clock. And ice it. You know with potentially having to final stop on defense, not a complete meltdown and then force your rookie into probably the highest pressure situation he's been in aside from literally starting game with a moment's notice against the chiefs.

The bucks ended up running five total plays in their final drive. Got The first down. They needed were able to ice it game over. Tough. Look. Tough game very frustrating. Justin Herbert though still really good career highs twenty, twenty, five passing super-efficient two, hundred, ninety yards, three touchdowns one interception. The team sucked on the ground for a defense that allowed. Less, than three yards per carry for opposing running backs, that's kind of what happened. Twenty three carries forty six yards, two yards per carry on the dot. I look at that and I see a team that. Probably should've stopped running the ball before it got to twenty carries eighteen Carey's nonetheless twenty three carries right I think Herbert was doing well enough that you could probably put a little more on his shoulders in this one. When we were talking to Keenan Allen, earlier this week I believe it was on Monday. And someone mentioned how many yards they rushed for. They said Keenan you guys were for forty six yards. How can you do better? How can the entire offense get better off that Kyun was so surprised where he liked gasped he he said how we had how many rushing yards and someone's at forty six and he goes that's tough. Just like. He was. So deflated could not believe how many rushing yards they had. Herbert was actually their leader. With fourteen yards on five carries Austin cler into carries that he had before he got hurt twelve yards. Probably would have been different day with Equa. Receiving wise three guys caught their first NFL touchdowns on their first NFL. Catches. jalen Guidon seven two yards touchdown to Ron Johnson. T billy teammates call him one for fifty three and a touchdown and tight end Donald Parham all six eight of them. One catch nineteen yards touchdown. Keenan Allen led the team with eight receptions on twelve targets for just sixty two yards he was used. Short intermediate routes barely. Twelve targets like I said no other player received more than three. Looks those guys were Hunter Henry Josh Kelley I. would've loved to see a little more hunter Henry most because the Tampa Bay buccaneers were bad at covering tight ends. So I'm a little confused on how they were able to erase. Henry, that badly in this one He averaged twenty yards per catch. I mean. That's not too shabby. Defensively they never got to. They never got Tom. Brady not once they hit him a few times good hit by Denzel Perryman one time he got hurt himself actually. I think he just ben is back weird but. Nothing Brady was you know had some pressure in his face, but the dude is unfazed that's why he's the go. buccaneers were quickly the chargers allowed Tom Brady to throw for a season high three, hundred, sixty, nine yards. He had not thrown for over three hundred yards in each the first three games of the season he threw three, sixty nine, he only had six touchdowns on the year three interceptions. He threw five touchdowns in this game almost doubled the years where the touchdowns in this one game there was the pick six by Mike Davis which was phenomenal electric he was really cool to see I hope that starts momentum about this defense getting turnovers at a more consistent pace. That would be huge. Receiving Mike Evans. How on basically one foot when offer seven one, twenty, two, a touchdown Scotty Miller five captures eighty three and touchdown O. J. Howard three for fifty and a touchdown Howard unfortunately went down with an Achilles injury turns out he's out for the year. So one last big from Howard before going down that's very unfortunate and Keyshawn von the rookie running back at Vanderbilt to catch twenty two yards and a touchdown. Ronald Jones ran for A. Career. High. But one hundred eleven of Tampa Bay's total hundred fifteen yards on the ground. Twenty carries he broke so many tackles in this game. And this was this all honestly in that second half looked like all of last year with tackling efforts racial. Jenkins. I believe was the one the only one to miss multiple tackles bad. seriously. Like he broke I, think six tackles on one run. It was really embarrassing. This is a really good offensive line. Don't get me wrong really good offensive line. But these tackles that needed to be made. That would have helped slow down some of these Tampa Bay drives given the charge a chance to get them off the field. And unfortunately didn't happen. Last bit of news. Coming out of this game was the Austin extra injury. Unfortunately, he confirmed on a twitch stream because he's an avid twitch streamer playing four-night call duty all that. He confirmed to those listening and viewing that he did have a great to hamstring strain. And he also mentioned that he thinks or was told if you remember correctly that there was some tendon that came off the bone which does not sound good. And he slightly hyper-extended his name. He's very uncomfortable just sitting still right now. Also something he said. So he, he's GonNa. Be Gone for a bit. He said, he believes that four to six week window of recovery is probably where it's going to be. He's going to be put on I are this week he should I mean I don't know why he's not. But. That's tough. Obviously tough. It's GONNA be Josh. Kelley Justin Jackson going forward. If Justin Jackson can't stay healthy, it's going to be heat Terry's Bradwell potentially maybe even troy main pope was with his offense last year but. Rather Dairies Bradwell I'd rather give new guys chances right if we're. We're that down at one position give the younger guys a chance to see something you know that we haven't seen before. That's tough. The charters because they play on Monday night against the saints. We usually speak with Anthony Lennon's players today on the media press conference. That's not happening because the opponent off a day everything's kind of pushed forward a day. So tomorrow Friday Saturday. We will talk to the guys, the players, the coaches. Figure Injury Report and get you guys the news that way. But those are my overall thoughts in the game is it was so exciting, right? It was so exciting. Herbert makes the offense electric. Made those three former undrafted players look really good. I don't see how someone like to Ron. Johnson is not used more against the saints how maybe guidance or Parham are used a little bit against the Saints Right. I think it'd be cool. If there's one thing for certain though herders elevating this offense. Don't get me wrong like they're not winning but Herbert's not playing Defense Herbert's not making coaching decisions. Herbert's not scheming red zone place. If you. Like they've had getting in the red zone or get in the end zone while they're in the red zone within the twenty. In this game one came inside the red zone and that was the nineteen. Herbert's really good about scoring getting these guys into. The, end zone from a distance because it's what his arm can do. So we'll see Shane Steichen you may have to scheme up some touchdowns in the red zone within the ten yard line. That's I. think that's the next step. For Shane Steichen as an offensive coordinator he's got. Right. You Watch the packers, the chiefs. The Patriots. All these good teams who have been good for years even with different coaches, right like the packers it's the second year head coach like it still so easy for them to scheme up something real quick. I just think maybe Shane Steichen needs to figure it out. Take another step forward. And hopefully, the offense, we'll just round itself out. Anyway, guys that's it for me today as always Michael Peterson chargers lately. Follow me on twitter. You can at zone tracks spelled Z. O. N. E. T. R. A. C. K.

Game of the Year: 49ers beat Saints in wild one

"With the NFL playoffs. Just around. The corner now is the time to subscribe to Rutta World Football podcast every Monday morning. Recap every game from the weekend. Tuesday help you on waiver. PICKUPS GOPS then go to game and Matra previews on Thursday and Friday so download the railroad football guess right now Welcome to the FM. I A mini pod. My Name's Peter King. This is my podcast. Asked my short podcasts. For the week that will introduce you to my football morning in America column for week fourteen in the NFL season. It's Sunday night about three forty seven. Am I met my apartment in Brooklyn not on the road this week and I concentrated a lot of my column this week. Take on the San Francisco New Orleans game forty eight forty six game one of the best football games I have seen in years. I don't know how how anybody could disagree with that. Unless you're brokenhearted over being a saints fan but I'm going to start by reading a short note wrote from Anthony. Chen Seahawks Fan. Who wrote to me this week and said wrote to me and and sort of in support of the mini pod? He he said. Recently my wife and I welcomed our second child baby girl number two into the world. I was fortunate enough to be given six weeks off for my company to spend time time with my family and to watch them grow with the second child in our home our days and nights became much more hectic and as a result our family wasn't able to win Joy Sundays as we normally would watching the full slate of NFL Games are free. Time became very limited. We kept our favorite team. The seahawks hawks our top priority and spent the rest of our time keeping the kids. Busy as a result. Your mini pot has been a perfect addition to my Monday morning lineup of podcasts. Outcasts through the mini podcast. Able to get I'm able to get a great recap of all the games and headlines around the NFL and still feel like I'm in tune with what's going on around the league. I also enjoy the ADO Haiku each week to cap off the pot. Well Anthony have have a great time with your kids. I'm sure you're probably upright now with them. Aren't you at three forty nine wherever you are in the world. I guess you're out on the west coast but I really appreciate your writing Good luck with your two girls. And I'm glad I'm able to keep you a little bit informed about what's going on around the league so what we're going to do as usual to review the lead to my column tell you what else I have in my column and then give you a couple Blah thoughts on every game in the NFL. That was played on Sunday so after the game. Is You know. On Sundays. I usually talk to a few you players this week. I talked to George Kill of the forty niners. I talked to Matthew Judah of the Ravens Linebacker had a great game team defensively in their win over buffalo and I talked to drew lock young Denver quarterback after a second start. And let me tell you this. You're not gonNA have a lot on on this mini pot about the Denver Broncos but while I've been impressed watching drew lock one of the best things that could happen to him was taking aching time and not getting rushed into the job. I saw him in training camp. I did not think he looked very good but he sure has looked good. The last two Sundays particularly regularly today so a little bit on all of that my column. But let's start with the lead of my column on the San Francisco Norlander Orlands game. Here we go. It'll take days to digest what happened in New Orleans on Sunday in the game of the year. If it ended saints forty a six nine hundred forty five which was the score after fifty nine minutes and twenty seconds. We'd probably all still call it the game of the year but the fact did it didn't end then in the fact that something happened on fourth into that immediately takes its place in all time forty niners Lore and and vaulted San Francisco from fifth to first in the NFC play offerings with three games to go well that makes it all NFL NFL films e Tinguely and massively important in the playoff race at the same time the whole day George Kittles said an hour after it was over for me was one of the best experiences of my life. The place was crazy. Fans were nuts. You couldn't hear such a fun environment. Even if you've seen the kid play ten times by now there are things you don't know things you'll want to know. The scene thirty nine seconds left fourth and two for the San Francisco. It's thirty three yard. Line the forty niners needed at least thirty two yards to get in range. Her Robbie Gold Field Goal. Try there's a two by two formation two receivers left and a tight end and white outright with where where he mustered aside card Jimmy Garoppolo in the backfield. The play clock wound down four three garoppolo nervously Clapping in now. Warning the ball oa-to he doesn't want to delay. Oh One shotgun snap precisely zero zero but wait time out coach. Kyle Shanahan called a time out. I'm just trying to get the playwright. She and a hand said later he. It barely called time in time but he thought of something better to get the two yards something. Better named George Kittle L.. Kid who was going to be the epicenter on this choice route and he in Garoppolo Nuit Garoppolo never went to the sideline above the din. The huddle he heard Shanahan call the play into his helmet very soon. After the timeout started right away. He looked kittle. Hey you're gonNA get the ball on this Garoppolo. The Cool Jillian air told kiddle the one hundred forty six th pick in the two thousand seventeen draft draft. You better win. So the League's top heavy this year and six teams have ten or eleven wins ends heading into the last three weeks two of those teams Seattle and San Francisco are in the NFC west and one could finish thirteen and three and face. He's nothing but road games to get to the Super Bowl entering Sunday. Seattle and San Francisco ten to but Seattle had the tiebreaker edge until the niners were ensconced as a wildcard as they took the superdome field. Said kittle Kyle. Talk to us about that before the game. Technically we were the fifth seed. But we've got our destiny in our hands. We knew that the game was insane. Each team team scored four times in the first half four times in the second it was twenty eight twenty seven niners at the half. After halftime the teams Pingpong Points Saints First Niners Saints Niners Saints Niners and then with fifty three seconds pins left in the fourth quarter saints. On an eighteen yard touchdown pass from drew brees to train Quan Smith to make it forty six x forty five New Orleans. no-one open on the two point. Conversion Pass So San Francisco could just kick a field goal. Well that would end it. Breeze by the way was stupendous. In a performance that left him to touchdown passes shy of breaking Peyton. Manning's all time touchdown record of five thirty nine five touchdowns no interceptions on the day for brees. How many more games like this? He has a month Of turning forty one I do not know but this one with the stakes involved was an all time for him. On that. Go ahead touchdown. Johnny saw huge Mitch Mismatch Trae Kwan. Smith isolated on middle. Becker Fred Warner and zip the ball onto Smith for an easy touchdown or at least breeze made it look easy as he so often does. So many saints have been in this spot before playing in front of a howling in crowd with Games divisions in playoff berths on the line breeze and Cam Jordan. Thomas Morstead Toronto Armstead and even even some of the young guys like Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas but most to the niners were brand new to this Garoppolo looked a bit affected. It did in the Monday night loss a month ago. Seattle misfiring and key spots and missing a few open receivers not Sunday. He and breeze each threw for three hundred forty nine yards with a quarterback rating over one hundred and thirty Jimmy G. played on the breeze stage age in the Breeze House and acquitted himself quite well and I'd have written that regardless of what happened in the last thirty nine seconds seconds in New Orleans on Sunday so thirty nine seconds left now. This was different Shanahan. After the timeout timeout had three receivers bunch just outside the left tackle Kendrick born the tip of the spear with Emmanuel Sanders to his left and in a full step back and kill slightly right and behind born. You could see what Shanahan had mind born in Sanders would clear out for kiddle and unless Saints Defensive Coordinator. Dennis Allen decided to double kiddle. Garoppolo would make kill the I read at the snap. Born ran hard up the left seem and sanders did a five yard crossing route left to right and there was one man. Rookie Safety Safety. chauncey Gardiner Johnson guarding kiddle was safety. Marcus Williams about ten yards upfield over the top protecting if kill beat the kid on the choice route kiddle told me you just motion over from right to left. And if it's man I line up behind me and you'll in Kaby EBB and they clean it out for me. The Guy Covering me set pretty far inside choice means I can break in or break out with him. Sitting inside Garner Johnson basically made the decision for me. I broke outside kiddle on third down. Hadn't gotten inside Gardner Johnson who broke up the short pass from Garoppolo to make it forth to but on the fourth down call. Shanahan was right to call time. I'm in switch the play. The white outs cleared out the space. Enforce the Saints Demand Coverage on kettle grapple led him perfectly and hit kindle precisely Zeisler at the first down. Mark the thirty five yard. Line Gardner Johnson drove it kills legs and he missed. KITTLE turned up field. Along along the left sideline he was unchallenged. Till Midfield Marcus Williams reached unintentionally grabbed kittles. facemask mask with his right hand and kill became a bucking maniac. Right around the forty eight yard line of the Saints Kiddle reminded to me of Mark Bavaro in that nineteen ninety game against the niners carrying Ronnie Lott for twelve yards and needing three San Franciscans to bring him down. Funny thing. Kindle wasn't upset that Williams grabbed and tug the mask I knew he'd get flagged for so I was actually happy. It just meant fifteen more yards for us. kittle said so I asked. What's going through your mind is this guy's grabbing your face mask and not letting letting go and two other guys join in to try to take you down? You remember. You were thinking. Get as many yards as I can and hold onto the damn football. He said from the contact facemask hold by Williams till three saints Hog tied. Him Down was twenty yards in the gain was thirty nine yards at the fourteen yards. Half the distance of the goal line for the facemask ask call and San Francisco at first and ten at the Saints Fourteen. This little fourth into Gambit Shanahan's last millisecond second time out the efficient necessary born in Sanders clearing out in the thirty seven yard. Kill run looking like a bull rider in one of those Texas. Texas bars knitted thirty. Or I'm sorry. Netted fifty three yards fifty three not bad for a guy who caught only forty forty eight balls in four years at Iowa before the niners saw something athletic and rough and tough in him in the scouting process in two thousand seventeen. Me and the play was pretty fun. Kibble said Zits your biggest play ever. I asked with what was at stake. Probably the niners bench went nuts on the play is Richard. Sherman said. Most people would go down and complained to the refs about the facemask but he was like. I'm GonNa Bull you all the way to the end zone until you stop me. We don't win this game without that play. Shanahan was already thinking of what to call. After the fourth into conversion he had no idea kid kid would do what he did. It said Shanahan kiddle took care of that gold. Thirty Yard Field Goal at zero zero one on it. Forty eight forty six. Football's the best thing in the world. kittle said practically gushing over the phone from Louisiana. Well I was gushing to and I'll admit it after that ridiculous game what this means to us what it means to the saints. What it means to the fans who were incredible the team aspect of the game? The way everyone here feels like a part. They're part of something special. That's what it is. It was special. Now we've got twenty four hours to celebrate this bad boy then we're onto next week. I can't wait to play more or football back in San Francisco interesting road now with the Seattle loss at the Rim Sunday night night San Francisco takes over first place in the NFL NFC. Top seed at eleven. In to the Falcons in rams come to Santa Clara in the next two weeks while ten and three Seattle is at Carolina next week and home to Arizona in two weeks. There's a real chance the San Francisco at Seattle game in week. Seventeen could be immense the division title of first round by the dreaded five seed aide all could be in play December twenty nine at centurylink field. That game might mean more than the one Sunday in New Orleans but but I have no idea how could be any more fun in any more compelling. That's the end of the lead into my column a few other things from the column itself before I get two games. I wrote a section in my column this week. On a boy named Anthony Myers. He was a football player at Berks Catholic High School in Reading Pennsylvania. At the age of seventeen last Wednesday he died of malignant brain. Tumor wrote about him briefly last year in my column in this year I talked to was strength. Coach who's incredibly broken up over this death In this kid lived a life very much. That's worth celebrating. I hope you enjoy this part of my column my one player of the week that I was really kind of happy you to give to was Matt Nagy the head coach the bears and I'll read you this with everyone in Chicago Golan Howling for the head of Mitchell trubisky and everyone in media including me calling for Bisky to be benched Nagy stood behind trubisky continually this year maybe fell the had to maybe did it because the bears were three and five at one point and he viewed chase. Daniel is just justin emergency guy not a quarterback to lead the team to the playoffs but trubisky started a turnaround in part in week. Twelve win over the giants and then in the last two games at Detroit and then Dallas at home. He's had a one sixteen point point. Nine rating completing seventy five percent of his throws coaches have to swim against the tide at times and sometimes it kills the team mm-hmm and sometimes it gives the team life now. It looks like Nagy's endless votes of confidence in his battered quarterback. Were smart and important. My go-to the week. This week of the two officials who missed the in Kiel Harry touchdown call and Foxborough costing the Patriots at least four points and maybe more my profile this week John Hayden hearst the Baltimore tight end. Who who did you guys all know this that Hayden hearst was Pittsburgh pirates draft choice in two thousand twelve. He's a he was a pitcher and he got a severe case of the yips which means that he lost the ability to throw strikes and and he flamed out out of baseball by two thousand fifteen but obviously he's had a good. A comeback in football was a first round pick of the Ravens. They picked picked him even before they pick Lamar Jackson a couple of years ago and You'll enjoy reading his little story. I think the the one thing that a look I really love this a hey how much you'll like it but one of my facto AIDS in the column this week is this in two thousand eight. His last year Georgia Matthew Stafford never completed seventy percent of his passes in any any of his thirteen games in two thousand nineteen his last year at Lsu. Joe Borough has never completed less then seventy percent of his passes in any of his thirteen games. I don't know I. I just thought that was really a fun. Fun Stat. Dat funded just ponder how much life has changed in the SEC. In eleven years and also how great I borough could very well be in the NFL. Okay so I'm going to get to a few. I'm going to get to the Sunday Sunday games. And just talk a little bit about them. And then I'll get to my Ado Haiku so we'll start with the EH Baltimore win over Buffalo in Orchard Park New York Ravens Twenty four bill seventeen I think the interesting part of this and what I talked to Matthew Jude on about after the game very impressive Young Linebacker for Baltimore is that the Baltimore Ravens now. They've had this incredible run on this seven and overrun. Starting two months ago against Seattle ending today in Buffalo they have beaten all comers five five of those teams are going to be in the playoffs most likely and they beat them all most of them substantially and so. I think the one thing I came came away from moving in and out of that game. I I mostly watch the The saints in the niners but moving in and out of that game. The one thing I took away. Is that win. Lamar Jackson has just an okay day or a bad day. They're not necessarily going to lose. The game they their defense is played so well in the last three or four weeks. I think they've got a real chance to survive Lamar Jackson stinker in the postseason such as when he had last year against the chargers in his first playoff start ever the box over the colts. Thirty eight thirty five. It's it's so interesting. I was on my way to to ripping tipping Jameis Winston again for throwing all these interceptions and then you look up and he is you know. Even with a bit of an injured hand. He supposedly has a A fracture small fracture in his hand. And it didn't seem to bother them all that much in the game. So You wouldn't think he would miss time with three weeks left to go but we'll see as the week goes on the colts. I would definitely be worried about. Their defense. Should be better better than this and I mean they just do not hold up defensively for a full game game. This is the second week in a row that they've blown apart in the second half of games and really their last ask. Gas Probably is next Monday night against the saints. They just you know they've gotTa Start Winning Games if they're going to have any prayer of playing in the postseason Minnesota Twenty Detroit seven. Look the lions are one and nine in their last ten games. I'm not saying saying they're a lost cause but you know they just they can't even look Matthew Stafford is part of most of those losses So it isn't just you know they're they're they're they're not winning because they're starting quarterback is out. I'd be a little worried about the lions. I would not be too worried about the vikings think they probably should have scored a little bit more. But I do think that the Vikings things interest me so much entering the postseason because they could be one of the best six six seeds. If that's what happens in recent years in the NFL Denver thirty eight Houston twenty-four look. Drew Lock is a fun and football player. WHO has a great time out there? And who today Sunday was I'd say twenty five percent better than he wasn't his debut he still is not playing much bombs away football so I'm sure Denver's going to try to to get him to throw downfield a little bit more before the end of this season but the one thing that that drew lock has done is that he has has basically now prevented John elway from automatically thinking that. I've got to go get a quarterback in the off season. I doubt Joe FLACCO comes back for them but whatever happens you know if lock has a couple more good games. I I think there's a very good chance. The the Denver Broncos will not go looking for quarterback in the off season Green Bay twenty Washington fifteen all sorts of stuff coming out of the packers about hey winning ugly and and we'll take wins any way we can get them and all that Aaron Rodgers said that I wouldn't mind winning ugly all the way to the Super Bowl but truly they're just just they make some big plays but they are not consistent at all offensively which I think is really worrying. Rogers and and a and worrying a lot of their offensive personnel Atlanta Forty Carolina twenty. Look this is not a raise. The white flag. We Love Ron Rivera. Anything like that from the panthers. They're just not good their quarterback his regressed and I just think right. Now that they're going to be a total inconsistent mess for the last three weeks weeks of the season. They could play well but most likely they're not gonNA play well and and they're gonNA sink to the bottom sometime in the next three weeks. CLEVELAND twenty-seven Cincinnati Nineteen. Now of course it was overshadowed by Baker Mayfield saying after the game that he didn't think thank the medical staff at handled Odell Beckham. Junior well this year and also overshadowed by the Jay glaser report saying that Odell definitely wants out. He's been asking people around the league. Help me get me out of here. and Odell Beckham wouldn't talk about it after the game. You know you really should whatever the veracity or lack thereof in the story and I certainly do believe the story not a great day for Andy Dalton not a great day for a lot of people on the bengals but one good thing is. They're still in the pole position for Joe Borough so I think that's A. I think that is a positive jets. Twenty two Miami Twenty one in one of my special teams players of the week was The the the the kicker for the dolphins and the one interesting thing about this is that and again look. You don't really know how things are going to go during the course of a game. You don't know whether a game game is going to be ruled by kicking. There were ten field goals in this game. Neither team could get a lot going. I know Brian flurries. After the game game was furious with an overturned officials call but I saw the call. It wasn't a horrible overturn. I think Gal River on is being tremendously inconsistent. But I do think there was enough to overturn that call chargers forty five Jaguars ten Maine can we just put. Doug marrone out of his misery. I it's just it's so sad. You know they now. I think the number is gotten to their nine and and twenty since they play in the AFC championship game at At New England a year and a half ago one. And obviously they're in they're in miserable miserable shape You know the highlights of this game are riot because the chargers I had so many big plays the first Austin cler became the first player this year to rush for over one hundred yards in a game while also receiving for more than one hundred yards in a game. Kansas City twenty three New England sixteen. Look Andy Reed's progressive play calling chops. were out there for all. See at one point he had travis Kelsey lying up to take a wildcat snap and he burrowed himself into into the end zone for a rushing touchdown I mean. How bizarre is it to see a tight end a big tight end? You know do that but that was really kind of fun thing and the Patriots. Obviously you're in trouble. We could say the same thing every week. I think it's important to them to develop a few more gadget plays. They are not going to win. Games offensively redoing bread and butter stuff. Tennessee forty two raiders. Twenty one. I've said this just about every week now in the last month but the Tennessee titans are going to give somebody if they get in a very very difficult playoff game early on in January story. And I say that because Ryan Tannehill has been incredibly efficient at quarterback and you know as far ars running back goes. They have several several options. But you know that the most important option in the best option as Derrick Henry who over the last month has been the best of best back in football. You know the raiders unfortunately have hit a dead end mm-hmm and I rely on Mike Mayock to continue the retooling in the off season. It's definitely definitely needed. The Pittsburgh Burg's steelers they beat Arizona. Twenty three seventeen and the steelers. Now if you haven't really figured it out they're six and one one in their last seven games and one of the things that they have done exceedingly. Well is cope without incredibly Lee debilitating injuries. I don't know for as long a period of time as it is. They've had so many guys either injured in out or are they fired. You know gotten rid of Liking Tonio Brown But this is a this is sort of a i. I guess I'd call it a such an opportunistic time for the Pittsburgh steelers. It's really amazing to be winning games. Devlin Hodges as your quarterback. I'm having a good time watching and reading hanging insertive experiencing this team because they are so so fascinating and right now Mike Tomlin is is. My Is My coach of the year. Rams twenty-eight seahawks twelve you know very very unlike the seahawks works to appear anyway Like this was not a game team that they felt was really an urgent game. And that's totally unlike them. Totally like Russell Wilson the encouraging urging thing for free thing for the rams. I thought in having this game on in the background while I wrote on Sunday night is that they know right now that when they have their timing down very very exactly in their passing game that they're gonNa have a very very very good and profitable passing game. I thought that is exactly what they did in this game today. So those are I I. Those are my just quick little thumbnails on all the Games. Hope you guys in the Chen family enjoyed it and I do appreciate you listening to the podcast. Maya do Tennessee's his pesky getting hot at the right time. Big Game v Houston. That's right Tennessee. And Houston two of the next three weeks and the outcome of those games certainly only is going to determine who wins in the. AFC South this year.

Kinda made me open my eyes a little bit but. Yeah you know it's the whole cope. Nineteen impact on the NFL is is really kind of I. Kind of feel like ruins a little bit the New England Ken City game tonight just simply because Cam Newton's not playing Brian Brian Hoyer is going to take over for him and I'm you know the other thing too just so people understand is that the Patriots are leaving this morning or some at some point today to go play tonight's game and they're taking two. Different. Airplanes they're taking a plane that will hold about twenty players and personnel that were close to Cam. Newton and then they'll take a plane to take the rest of the team. So they're going into plane ovid plane. Well, they can have to hope plane and regular plain. Wow. So I'm not saying that this game I could this game get cancelled if somebody on the Patriots before they get on these planes today short how's it for Covid nineteen I would say yes. They're also going to have the unprecedented testing prior to the game I believe out in Kansas City. So I think the NFL is trying to do everything in their power to fight through this thing realizing that these things were going to happen at some point this season this will not be the last time this is going to happen, but they're gonNA try to fight through it and Unfortunately for the Patriots, they are at a competitive disadvantage because they're missing the quarterback that has run more times than any other quarterback in history for the first three weeks of the NFL season and that, and that running has been very impactful and very helpful for the Patriots offense, and that was probably one of the aspects of going into. Kansas City beating city tonight is is running the ball effectively and holding onto it and keeping it away from Patrick Mahomes. So covid nineteen is I would say has impacted the balance of. These two teams tonight. So we'll see how that works out. I really felt like the NFL was pretty transparent with everything. I know that today I think around three o'clock eastern time every coach, every general manager in every owner is a big conference call, right? Yeah. He's going to be on a conference call with the NFL the NFL once again is going to read these three gentlemen from each team the riot act on how their team has got the follow these protocols and as I said this. Way Back when in the beginning when the NFL was bitching and complaining about possibly going and playing preseason games and all that other stuff from they didn't trust the NFL to keep them healthy and everything else. WHO's whose responsibility? Is it g? To keep themselves as healthy as possible, it's personal responsibility. It's your own responsibility everybody who leaves that facility in goes home. It is up to them and them alone to make sure that they're not putting themselves and risk, which could in turn put the rest of the locker room and staff and Roster Ed risk right so It's really if I were a thirty eight year old player if I had a son at home that was compromised like nate solar does you know I would not trust my teammates? You know I would not trust my teammates and that, and that's the thing you know it goes back to the players now I, don't know what they're doing where they're catching. The the virus from nobody does that's the thing it's invisible can be anywhere could be here at Entercom at Wfan it could be at CBS ABC. It could be don't an airplane that you're flying. If you're flying commercially to one of these games in your an announcer, it could be anywhere. That's the thing you know you can't see it. It's an invisible enemy and the thing that really. And I tried to say this yesterday. I I appreciate the NFL trying to push forward here I think they did the prudent thing with the Tennessee titans because they couldn't get a handle on it but I also believe that you can't just keep canceling every single game that if you if you can push through, you have to try to push through and the thing that I'm telling you there may be a vaccine one of these days, but that vaccine is going to act as. Much, like the flu vaccine I, I, get the flu vaccine every year but there have been five times that I can think of when I was playing in the NFL or I came down with the flu and I was bedridden for four days. So that doesn't mean the vaccine is going to basically cure this particular virus that does viruses going to be around and we are going to have to learn how to fight through it and thankfully. Ninety nine point nine percent of the people that are catching this thing are not dying you know so I appreciate and applaud the aggressiveness of trying to push through this playing this game tonight. But I also realize that you have to you have to be practical about how you're dealing with this on a personal level. Sure and I love the fact that they're going to do the rapid tests before the game and I think I look at this more positively negatively believe it or not. Because we did know that there was going to be positive tests. You had several members of the Tennessee titans that worked. Out. Where they could reschedule move some by weeks around? That's fine. Didn't really mess with the scheduling all that much. Yeah. The steelers had to play a lot of weeks in a row, but Mike Tomlinson doesn't care about that. Then you had one player so far test positive for the New England patriots and you didn't have anybody else so far test positive. They're gonNA try to play the game and remember too in that game that the titans just played nobody on the Minnesota. Vikings tested positive. So the team that was infected did not pass it to the team that they were playing. So you didn't have. Two teams that were completely wiped out by the virus. I thought that was a positive thing and then think about all the roster's other than the titans and then one player on the Patriots. So we're talking about thirty other rosters who haven't had a positive test through a month right? It's kind of like baseball a bit like baseball. What happened with the marlins would happen with the cardinals and people are contact tracing gets better than that so far it's probably better than that. But what I'm saying is that it still you know it's it's touched the NFL. Okay. We understand that we're not GONNA GO Berserk. Over it, we're going to try to be as realistic and practical about this as they possibly. Can. You know when people went beserk boomer was when that positive test that ended up being a false positive for a saints player came out on Saturday night and then everybody said Oh here we go. The whole League's going to be canceled because now we got another game that's in jeopardy and they're going to move that back and then everybody found that was a false positive and then relaxed but that's people were starting to go beserk at that point and then they ended up being wrong because it was a false. I don't know what to tell. You look the president came down with it. He's fighting it. We know that right wondering why he was in that truck I couldn't figure out who right and many people around him You know became positive. They think it probably came at the nomination of the Supreme Court justice so I? I mean so virus man and it's out there. You know they came down with the measles vaccine. The measles vaccine is probably ninety eight and a half ninety, nine percents successful. I think that's what they're hoping would be the case in regards to Covid nineteen but may not be maybe like the flu and you know the we get the flu vaccine, but we still get the flu, every NFL player. Every team that I ever played on, we were all required to get flu shots. Now, the NFL, PA has resisted this for some reason and I'm not really sure why the flu shot the flu shot. Yes. You know they the NFL wanted to require all players get flu shots. The NFL PA fought this because obviously some people want a flu shot and I understand that they have their reasons why but it? Again flu shot is not a one hundred percent because there's different strains of the flue and that's why and I was thinking about the Games and when I got when I really really got sick and I was down for three or four days and one was at the end of the ninety seven season when I was in Cincinnati right after my final game against Baltimore the next week and we can seventy. Seven days ten days I was out I, was done I was so sick and then there was a game that we there were about six of US played as New York jet players in. HOUSTON. It was the last game, the ninety-three season we were all sick dogs and it just kind of goes through the team and and that was the the game before that we played up in Buffalo, it was thirty five below zero wind chill. So, we must have caught it somewhere between that I know if you were still covering the team back then. You on that team that that was the ninety three season? No not yet. Okay. So it was you know the these things happen and it's just you you and every person that ends up with one of these viruses. Ends up dealing with the differently some handle it better. Some don't, and that's why we have so many flu deaths every year even though we have a vaccine, there are still flu deaths and a significant number of them. So tried. That's why just go back G. that. The NFL's doing this right. They should play the game tonight nobody else's sick. Go play the game and look you have the money to make it happen. You have the airplanes you have the ability to travel. You have the ability to test the ability to contact trace all the players wearing tracing devices. So if they stand next way somebody for fifteen minutes within six within six feet of that person. That device goes off so they're trying to do everything. They possibly can keep the players as healthy as they can yeah, and I think, did you best that you can't just shut everything down every time? There's a positive test with the titans. It was clear because it kept there was more and there was to another day and another one that just sort of kept going and then they found a way to reschedule the game. But so far it's one player on one of the two teams and they move the. Game Back. They're going to do extra testing and they're gonNA, find a way to continue through I mean in the beginning of this thing. Yes. Everything had to get shut down at had to in the beginning because especially around here, it was absolutely everywhere and we got to a point where there was the number of people passing away at day was just astronomical that things had to get shutdown points didn't understand what they were doing and rice they were making in house impacting large segment of the older population back. And now, we're at a situation where you can test a lot. We've got rapid testing. We've got all sorts of things to be able to help us make these decisions and I think that the NFL is pushing through and doing the right thing. Now, if they end up being extra test and then the chiefs and the Patriots ended up having positive tests next week in the NFL look silly and they're gonNA get crushed by everybody they're doing every day now. Is the time to complain about that not afterwards, and I'll sit here and I'll go out on a limb and say that I believe especially with the rapid testing that they'll see before the game that I think that they are doing the right thing as long as that testing is accurate what you have to trust. Then there's no reason to do it if you don't trust and on top of all of that, you have college football games going on every weekend. You know and I don't know how many there were this week my forty. Maybe I guess maybe maybe a little bit more than thirty to thirty two. I mean see at thirty two games going on in college football. This weekend will be positive test in college I know that we had the one player up in Boston that developed myocarditis and I know that that's still very. Significant aspect of this disease and it still could happen. Again shutting things down and stopping and the collateral damage is even greater than the actual virus itself when you think about it and what it's doing to people's livelihoods from the economy to mental health to everything else in between on top of this, I mean the the mental health. Community is saying that you know their. Impact or the impact on them is like two hundred percent. More. Patients looking for help and needing help because of the pandemic and because of the lockdowns. So you I mean. That's just an amazing number, an amazing number when I think about it, the amount of people that are really in dire need of mental health on top of all of this. All right. Let's let's talk giants go into a deep dark. Depression whole with all of that because I felt like we were on the, we just got on the exit. Of that whole deal. All right. So the giants yesterday with the the Los Angeles Rams I. Know that this was another one of these giants played hard giants were in the game. They were thirteen point underdog. They showed some fight and all of those things but they still did not score a touchdown they still can't run the ball to save their lives. And they still have a quarterback that win his team has a shot is turning the ball over in critical situations. Those things are still happening. So yeah, the defense actually played great and I don't know what the hell the rams were doing because they were trying to. It was almost like they were trying to play down to the giants level and slow the. Game down themselves whatever reason there were running the ball a ton I thought that Jared Goff would just stand back there and it would be up and then it would be woods and then it would be Higby Bang Bang. Bang right down the field like we saw the steelers with a million of those crossing routes against the giants there really wasn't the case. I mean, nobody was doing anything offensively especially through the air until that cup touchdown and the giants hung around. But then once again, because there are one dimensional offense that can't run the ball unless it's Daniel Jones because they can't score touchdowns and because the quarterback is just waiting to turn the ball over in a critical moment, they're going to lose lots of. Was the same pattern as the first two weeks almost to a T.? So yes, thirteen point underdog came in there and they fought but I mean, did they really? GET SNIFFING. Get close to it just know that the giants Rampart one hundred and thirty six yards why the rams only ran for fifty eight yards and the giant defense does deserve a lot of credit. They had the one blown coverage on the Cooper Cup touchdown late in the game. Zone in the backside safety didn't get to the middle of the field that was like he was lost in space and that was a rookie and those things happen and unfortunately for the for the giants had happened at the wrong spot. You Know Dan Jones was sacked five times. He did run with the ball effectively I thought. They were. Stopping their best option running foot I wa I know that and I know I know but I thought about the freemen ran well yes. Right. Thought calm well or yards it thirty-three. For. The how many? How many times did he run with Iran with eleven times right so they don't. Less than three yards per carry running well, honestly I thought the giants played the Durant's for the better part of the game and both. Score touchdowns and if they don't score touchdowns. Then that and that's the quarterbacks thing like when you watch again when you watch Russell Wilson, you watch Watch Aaron Rodgers Tonight Josh. Allen yesterday even Derek Carr to a certain extent these guys are making throws down the field man they are thrall win and and the wide receivers make an unbelievable catches. There were some great place yesterday that Brandon I you for San Francisco made an unbelievable play last night leaping into the end zone like a track star. There was there's a great catch by John Brown on the goal line for. For Josh Allen who I thought was probably going to be out of the game the way he awkwardly fell on his left shoulder. Buddy Sam darnold they go back into the game and they play and Josh Allen had terrific second half. He didn't run quite as much I? Think he was trying to protect themselves but there's something that the giants and the jets are not doing. They're not legitimately trying to throw the ball down the field. How many bombs have we seen on a Sunday afternoon whether it be Baker Mayfield Hell Jarvis. Landry threw a bomb today was right on a rope. What right? On Line is unbelievable and Odell Beckham Junior had the game of his life yesterday all over the place and that's the Odell Beckham. Junior. I think that the browns thought that they were getting when they traded him from the giants but they need more than one game from him but they're not they're not generating any big plays but neither team here locally is generating anything offensively in terms of big place and that's and that's the frustrating part especially when you're watching. quarterbacks around the league generating plays Joe Borough. Justin Herbert I mean these guys are throwing the ball down the field and their teams are making plays for them. And it almost seems like while the jets are a completely different story I think because. They can't do anything. Well at all they've gotten blown out every single week. Well, actually not that this past week that lost a terrible team, but they were blown out three times prior to that the giants have hung in games, but it's almost like Jason. Garrett is afraid to unleash Daniel Jones because of his turnover potential. Really think that's what it is. It's like I'm not gonNA throw the ball down the field or take a risk as well as guy dollars is if we were waiting for that route to develop, he's GonNa fumble a ball for guy gets near him or. He's going to throw the ball down the field that's going to get picked I'd probably what it is, is there being safe because this guy is just a turnover machine every single week it's every week you can count on it's like clockwork at this point like here kind no, they're down eight and they wouldn't need to score a touchdown which didn't do the entire game and then get a two point conversion. So was unlikely at that point but still another opportunity same thing is the bears game. Same thing as the steelers game here come the giants with a shot. Daniel Jones pick. It is you can. You can time it out. You know when it's happening and happens every time you know to me yesterday watching Daniel. I felt like he was trying not to turn the ball over like I felt like now. That right. No, you can't. You can't but you're trying to balance. His? Mental. Confidence and but you're also trying to give him place and believe you me. They run plays where they have guys going deep all the time. It's not like they don't have that. It's not like they're just calling like hard routes or not. You know these are concepts that are being run and I actually thought at the beginning of the year that especially in that first game against Pittsburgh Jason Garrett called the hell of a game because they couldn't run for crap an airplane at thirty four steeler defense that's going to be one of the best in. The League when it's all said and done with, and I thought some of the offense of concepts and some of the the the the passing concepts down were great and they actually looked like a real team there until that that turnover inside the ten yard line where but debris hits his arm and then cam hayward comes down with the interception. But I felt like yesterday watching Daniel, he did not want to turn the ball over at all and he did a really good job of not having. That's one of the reasons why they were in the game. If he throws two or three interceptions in that game than the rams are probably GONNA run up thirty, thirty, four points on them but you know he throws the pass to the right and it's behind the receiver and it's an easy interception and it ends the game and that's the killer part of the game. But I overall he played A. Game and he didn't turn anything over until late in the game, which which again I understand is a an an issue but it seemed to me like he was playing like he just did not want to turn the ball over that. He's extremely aware of the criticism that is coming his way because of the turnovers. Guest that I see it differently of playing a careful game against a team that you're a massive underdog against I. I. Didn't see when when Justin Herbert had to play against the Kansas City chiefs I didn't see the chargers that we playing careful game. I. Saw them going forward on fourth down and sort of throwing the ball down the field I saw them saying all right. We have to take risks because we can't just beat this team straight. Up I don't WanNa see the giants on the road is a thirteen point underdog play a careful game because it just doesn't work. It doesn't mean you had that team on the ropes and you couldn't find that play offensively to break them and you said yourself, you thought that they outplayed the rams for most of the game is. So where's that big play? Where's that back-breaking thing? Where is that throw down the field to test them a little bit. Playing careful when you're massive underdog and you're season's not going anywhere is for what what is the point I mean for us analysts and for US fans. That's how we think we think Kamal's just let it loose and let go what do you got other teams think like I'm saying I'm giving you other examples in the NFL I understand that and it's just an Herbert's second star his first start, and then then a second, he learns a little bit more and by the way you know they didn't have. Austin. ECHO. Yesterday because he got hurt but they do have Austin cler Keenan Allen Mike Williams when they're healthy they have hunter Henry Williams. Didn't play yesterday either I know I said want healthy I said one healthy so. I'm not sitting here telling you making an excuse I'm telling you that if I'm John Jet Fan I'm watching some of these other players play these other teams I'm like, why can't my team do that? Why is it my team even attempting to do that I'm just telling you I thought he felt he played a game yesterday where he was just trying not to turn the ball over and unfortunately he did at the end I mean for three quarters the reason that game was closest because he didn't have one of his dopey turnovers again. Then that he lost the game with A. Yes you could say that definitely and you you also alluded to you felt like there's no running game whatsoever there is. Really falls on him. Him I mean he had six for forty five i. mean the combination that Wayne Goldman looked okay and a couple of runs but you can't give Devante Freeman. I mean he's he's done that guy is cooked. With him but jude, they have no other choice i. They have a stable of fifty running back that they can pick from. They're taking guys off the street. A lot of teams are by by the way a lot of teams are as well. I mean, you watch you watch I'm sure you watch the the Vikings Texans game yesterday right And that was some ugly football too. Bad teams, couple bad teams. Dalvin. Cook is the best player on the field right yesterday. Going down to giants. Don't have a Dalvin Cook. Do the jets neither one of them do. Brian I mean I'm sure we'll talk about it at some point bill. You could not screw that thing up worse than Bill O'Brien screwed it up. I mean I don't know how you can have in spend the money you've spent on that roster and I know that they had a tough start to the schedule but to be sitting here at Owen four and to lose that game, the Vikings at home yesterday with a quarterback like the Shawn Watson. I I don't know how you can be that bad I. I really don't. To, continue to get worse. Yeah. Well, the big thing about. The NFL is at at home doesn't matter anymore. This is. I mean I think it really comes down to and I was watching. Between the bears and the colts yesterday watching a cold sideline, the colts sideline for whatever reason I mean there are hopping up and down there screaming and yelling there's slap at each other on the back night kick the crap out of the the bears yesterday and I don't know if that is a thing that the coaches I I'd have to ask Frank I haven't asked them but I don't I don't know how you're manufacturing the emotion for four quarters in A. Empty Stadium especially, a stadium as big as the you know the bears have out there soldier field. And I'm watching the the culture's going off on the sidelines and you can hear every time they make a tackle and every time they're running to make a tackle. How just energized they are, and then you watch some other teams and you watch teams that are like are dead and like me the Texans are one of those teams jets are one of those teams even the giants they even with a spirited effort and maybe it was because of the Jalen Ramsey you know golden tate stuff going on. They had a hell of an effort from from there deepens I thought overall health effort by the teams just at the quarterbacks just not generating enough big play.

Mason and Ireland HR 2: Guests Galore

"And you've tuned in just in time because ladies and gentlemen boys and girls making his official media debut. Daniel Ramona's son aged months Momo whereas Daniel what are you guys? Doin' Hey Mama. What is the Horse? Where's the horse? Say Dan you. Can you say Yang Natural that my job and Mike now there we go? That was excellent by the way I know. I can't believe that either exist while he's upset because he had a brush with fame and now it's being taken away this rechange today. Because we're respecting social distancing. I'm at my house. Lindsay's at her house Ramona's at her house. Funches thank God agreed to come in and so he could bring all this together but we are. We are trying something we've never tried before. This is a four location Mason in Ireland. Show we've done. We've we've done too. I think one time ever. We did three. I don't think we've ever done four and the one sport we haven't talked about we've talked a lot about what the NFL's doing we've talked a lot about the NBA but Ramona Major League baseball which is cancelled spring training. The sport is basically shut down. Came out today and said that they're not going to start 'til mid May at the earliest at the earliest so and Rob. Manfred was was saying that he's still hopeful they could get in one hundred sixty two games but baseball like the NBA. They don't have like four days a week. They have maybe one. I don't know how if you're going to start in the unless they're gonna go till November right. How's IT GONNA? Yeah I don't really I don't think you can play with like no off as you can have extra double headers. I guess but I think the whole point of having the 162 that's just financial right I think they're just looking at date. Revenues and this lose twenty games if we drop it to one hundred and forty. Something lost everybody you know. Let's get to her friend Bob Nightingale. Who's Nice enough to join us? Bob One of the best baseball columnist in the world and he covered this rob Manfred announcement today and Bob. Let's start there. Roberson how he wanted to try at least to get the one sixty two but he's also talked about that starting till the middle of May. How does he pull that off logistically? It really is impossible Just like when they said they start it on nights. That wasn't going to happen either. So you can play. I think they're gonNA play during the All star break and I'll play some games October But there's no way but I wanna say to you know I think you'll love to get closer to to one forty four possible but really anything over one hundred games right now would be a bonus. Bob. What what does this do financially to these teams. I mean I know it's already hurting people with Spring training revenue. I'm sure they're they're postponing season. They're kind of looking at their bottom line. And what does that mean for them? What's that GonNa do just in terms of Teams out team income but also player income income. Ramon they're trying to figure out what to do. Major League baseball offered a balloon payment to start with that we that was rejected by the Union. So it couldn't have been that much The players themselves are braced for just having everything pro rated like you'd have to me and play. They expect you only get half their salary. Yeah but they all star Congress in the NBA Players Gender Salary in. Nhl as well but of course she's already started so it's a little bit different we're talking to Bob Nightingale from USA. Today he covers baseball and has for years. He's a hall of fame voter. He's covered sports. You know ever since I met him years and years ago. Bob You mentioned the all star break. The All Star game is scheduled to be a dodger stadium for the first time in forty years in your mind. Do you think they play it? Do you think they play the All Star game this year? Or maybe because they're going didn't need the dates and because they're gonNA start so late that they might skip it. I don't see how they can play only play at that date. I mean a few weeks. You can't say. Oh this guy's all star that'd be a joke you know. Could they move back to August? Yeah they could. But then it's like you're eating up you know you're GonNa have a four day four day layoff you'd be playing regular season games and so I know Major League Baseball. Does you know want to say the. All Star game is out right now so wait on that. I think they're going to have no choice. But to cancel the All Star game and probably the two thousand twenty two right now. The seasons Also game supposed to be Atlanta in two thousand twenty one so they may just leave it there in Atlanta and then. Ucla that game two years and give it back to the dodgers into your curious. Kind of how? How you guys were feeling about everything during spring training I know for me in the NBA. Like we we started about a week a week and a half out starting to get really concerned about where this was going to go whether or not we should even be at these games right then but I wonder you know where you guys. Wha what how did that dawn on everybody that this was not just you know no spring no fans but just suspended indefinitely. I kinda surprised everybody. Ramon in the sense where I don't think people were checking seriously enough and you know I'll put reporters myself included in that and I think it really hit home it really hit home until the NBA shutdown when the NBA shutdowns wall. Baseball's gotta you know Doctor Right now then of course march madness I don't think it hits up till then I don't think anybody saw this coming Not Nothing remotely close. We're talking about nightingale from USA Today. Bob Am I right in suming that this. If they do Miss Games they cut the season down to one. Forty four even less like. Let's say it got down to one thirty that helps bad teams more than it helps. Good teams right. If you're loaded like the dodgers the the more games you play you create a bigger sample size. Is that a correct assumption by me or my just making stuff up. No I definitely agree with you. John the sense where a You know the dodgers are so deep loaded. It really helps you. You're playing you know her two season so I thought the dodgers are clearly the world series favorites. You know my world series pick was going to be a rematch eight dodgers in Oakland A.'s. But yeah you know really about baseball since you've just games. There's no flukes. He got a chance to have a fluke you know. Make the playoffs in a even go. Make the run and win world series because the depth won't matter much no rob. Manfred had any answers a solution when they had the conference call with media. Today do they did did he. Did he seem to have a wait and see? Approach this or do they have. They have a pretty good plan set out. He was outside the cardinals facility so he just spoke to reporters there and then of course spoke to the club owners and presents with a conference call and said you know all we know is that we're not playing apple nights we're going to follow the CDC Suggestion and it'll be out for at least eight weeks but he. They can't come onto timetable and I didn't go with what's going on with. La House getting worse and worse now and you look at US Kinda fouls that same Going to get worse. It's GonNa get better We're talking to Bob Nightingale. Bob Were Assuming Ramon and I r NBA guys that did cover the NBA every day. We're assuming that there probably won't be fans if when the League starts back up again just because if you look at Italy if you look at Asia if you look at the other ways this thing has been managed that they still want to do as much social distance in as they can do before they try and flatten the curve. Are you assuming the same thing in baseball? That if they do. I don't rob suggested perhaps may that if they do get something up and going in made that it probably is without fans unsure about that just in the sense that nobody wants that you know. I was talking to some players that played in two thousand fifteen games the Baltimore. Then the civil unrest there and they said it was miserable. You know I mean what's the point of doing a bat. Flap flipper Jessica's offenses Helius. Everybody was just so strange. You can hear the other dugouts talking talking themselves so I prefer even if it's a little bit long way to do it with fans without fans just to Erie they said well you know what I'm wondering is the sense that you know. Maybe a couple of months. We'll we'll get through this but you know the the evidence suggests this could just come right back in the fall. When there's another flu season is there is there is there. Anybody who's acknowledged publicly or privately to you. I mean I know they`ve. They've said this to me publicly in private more privately. There's a chance that they don't even have a season that the rest of this year gets that that does anyone there yet. No not yet be optimistic. I mean but you know for themselves if there's only you know one positive test in baseball and minor league what the Yankees Test. People are tested. Once people are tested. They're not going to be. Oh my God look how many people have it? You Know Gay There's gotta be a whole lot more people sports world than have this thing. I think baseball's fear is okay. Let's start back up. They start back up and one guy knows they got shut. The whole thing down again in the back of their minds are thinking you know right. Now we're probably looking at closer to the July fourth weekend. You know rather than the Memorial Day weekend but it's gotta be a fear that the show the whole season down Bob lasting for me you've like I mentioned covered baseball's for years. It's been your life in your career. If they don't play for two months have you started to think about what you're going to write about. I'm just curious like where your heads out in terms of content. If they don't play well yeah I'm now now. It's almost like accurate. A an off season. You know. Maybe you don't do some feature stories than guys out. You know how much it affected them. How much affects free agency You know what I'm Mookie Betts. Now we'll have to wait another year before free and that sort of thing so I think it's more of the financial stuff actually human interest stories and and I guarantee with the minor leaguers you see a Lotta Minor League baseball not being paid. I gotTA start making a living and I think you'll see a lot of minor leaguers say. Hey I'm quitting baseball. Let me get a real job. Wow Yeah I didn't think about that. You know it's something to the longer goes. You know players. Don't get paid. They have to take up other jobs. Only problem is not so many jobs right now but the one thing. I was what our players able to do right now. Are they able to to work out at all at the facilities or they have to do it by themselves? What are the standards that they're putting in place? Yeah those are big bone of contention Ramona as far as the player. Now you can't shut us out. These facilities in baseball finally agreed that okay. We're not GONNA have any staff there or very minimal. Philby's we've for for you to probably work out at your home facilities You can't just cut them out completely so I think a Lotta guys would go home. For instance dodgers A. Lotta guys only had a lease until March Twentieth March twenty first. Because they're about the you know go back home and then Do the freeway series when the angels everything else so. I think a lot of dodger guys are staying this week only because releases so good. Then I think you'll see a ton of guys working out informally Dodger Stadium. But we really appreciate you doing this. I know it's a it's a crazy time and we appreciate you making some for us. Thank you my pleasure. Thank you take care all right. There's Bob Nightingale from USA Today and it's interesting. He doesn't think they can play the All Star game. Yeah I was looking forward to it. So we all boo the astro. Whoever was maybe the only beneficiaries of this? You know there's so much hatred and vitriol towards them but now it almost seems like you know. It's small potatoes compared to what the rest of the world's going through those profits on how many times they were going to get hit games this year twitter remote. Mason and different this. I know they're loaded on paper that they're really really good but I think Karma is going to get him. I think you know Bob mentioned. He's picking the as go to the world series drilling the as play in the same division as the Astros. I think Houston misses the playoffs. This year to you wou- I don't know they're pretty good. You know it kind of depends on how long the season we really have the short sample size. I could definitely see scenario. Where like they start off poorly because they're gonna be that persona non grata right like it's going to be awkward and weird but there's also something about that that might ban them together. You know right you know just like with spy gate could out the other way all right. let's talk about in this hour in terms of the NFL. Our Buddy Andrew Sicilian is gonNA join us. We're still going to try and track down Austin cler. Who If you don't know? His story signed a twenty four million dollar contract today. Four years walked onto the chargers. Nobody ever heard of him he basically showed up at open tryout and today he signed twenty four million dollar contract. We'll track him down and we're doing fasttrack. Fernan tire our this week. Five o'clock fasttrack Lindsay's GONNA help out FUNCHESS'S IN IT MATE. Mace's back on Wednesday Ramon and I got bonus question so stay tuned for that Mason Ireland. Espn La Mason in Ireland show. I'm John Ireland Ramona. Shelburne information coming up at the bottom of the hour. Buddy Andrew. Silly honor will join us after what's turned out to be a pretty crazy day in the NFL. And at four forty five Austin who signed a twenty four million dollar contract today with the chargers four years after he basically walked onto the team he showed up at an open tryout a few scouts on and the rest as they say is history. He finally got paid today. And we'll we'll talk to Austin at four forty five so a Ramona. How familiar you with Mel Brooks movies? I know them but I. I wouldn't say that I see raising saddles or high anxiety. Your doctor Dr Frankenstein. All that feel like I saw blazing saddles. Okay so brooks ways the he wrote the producers if if you ever saw that with Nathan Lane and Matthew that's funny you know arguably the greatest Comedians of his generation. So Mel is now ninety three. He's not doing too much anymore but his son. Max shut the funniest. Psa FOR THE CORONA virus. I don't know how this will play in the radio but we're going to try it. What you see is Max standing in what looks like a four year like out. Patios and he introduces his Dad Mel. Who's on the other side of the glass like he's glass in and Max sent this out on twitter. It now has over one hundred thousand views. And here's what it sounded like. Hi I'm Max Brooks. I'm forty seven years old. This is my Dad Mel Brooks dead. He's ninety three if I get the corona virus. I'll probably be okay. But if I give it to him he could give it to. Carl Reiner who give it to Dick Van Dyke and before I know it. I've wiped out a whole generation of comedic legends when IT COMES TO CORONA VIRUS. I have to think about who I can infect. And so should you so practice social distancing avoid crowds wash your hands keep six feet away from people and if you've got the option say home just stay home do your part don't be a spreader right debt? I'm going I'm going. I thought was great. And if you weren't with us for the top of the show I can tell you that I'm doing the show today from my house. Ramona's at her house. Lindsay is at her house and funches is in the studio. It's a four way. Mason in Ireland. Show masons on vacation. I'm we're we're doing what we can stay in the air and hopefully bring you a little bit of levity remote a son Daniel Maiden appearance before the end of the show. You may hear from my dog. Lindsay's dog we have no idea how this is going to go. I'm actually surprised that we haven't had more technical problems than we've had. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA posted a picture of what I looked like right now. Okay doing this show so you can see with my computer open with my iphone ear buds. And you can see my see my bookcase behind me. It's kind of funny. I zero makeup on and I'm wearing a adidas. Game of thrones shirt that now get those pictures of her home offices. I I'll old. There's gotta be somebody around can take one if not I'll do follow US healthy. Yeah Yeah you have a selfie stick like Mason. Don't know now you just let me tell you this is. This is all women. No this okay. I don't know if guys do or not when you take a Selfie. The most important thing to do is to shoot down at yourself. Shoot up at yourself. You look like seventy pounds heavier right. You just shooting up at your and it distorts your you always WanNa to hold the the cleanup high. Shoot down at yourself at an angle so that you look normal and not distorted the basin. Just take twenty pictures until he found one where he didn't look fat right. Yeah but there's nothing wrong with that. I'm literally posing picture myself with no makeup on in by the way we're going to be doing this all week. We're going to figure out a way to make it work. Occasionally we winning today. If we're if we feel up to it we may go in. Ramona has little kids so she wanna go in in Linden. I didn't WanNa push it so That's how we came up with this idea but we'll be in the air and hopefully providing you with some sports news even though there are no sports which is why I was talking to earlier in the show when we were talking to B J Armstrong I hope. Espn gets this last dance documentary. It's it's ten episodes Ramona. So if they started running every night the ratings would be gigantic. Because there's nothing else to watch. Yeah and there's there's a there's a lot of stuff on net apple TV and all that stuff but one of the things. I've been thinking about. You never got homeless. I got into bed. We were both feeling really anxious and freaked out and everything I you know I gotTa Watch something down I got. I can't yeah. I said Lisa came over and she goes. I WANNA comedy so we ended up on. Get Him to the Greek. Have you seen now? Now it's the follow up to. It's the follow forgetting Sarah Marshall. Yeah that was good one picture. Yeah your your setup is way nicer than mine. I'll tell you a little story. I did this I did this story for ESPN. Paul George is called the cover story. This is one of the new things that we got going. It's ESPN the magazine. No longer publishes right so right now. The cover story is where we get athlete to do an e sixty four and then. I write a magazine Quality Story. We also do cover shoot and we own photographer etc. So one of the things that they do in this e sixty story is like the writer becomes kind of a person in the story so one of the days I said. Hey can we come over to your office and take pictures of you video of you writing because I kind of become part of the character in the story pay. I said Yeah. You'RE GONNA have to give me a day to clean my office and make it somewhat presentable. So then they came over and in the shot that you have in this photo that I just posted it actually like sort of strategically. There's some books that are covering up a bunch of mess behind the bookcase. So if you look there I got like Steve Jobs Book. I got returned to the king. I Got Jeff Pearlman book show but behind that is is like total mess. Yeah I had to clear out a whole bunch of stuff. Did add an old desktop computer. And I just reiterated this whole thing all right up next a crazy day in the NFL. They elected to open for business and teams jumped in. Deandre Hopkins has been traded. David Johnson's been traded G. David Klein is changing teams. There are rumors about Philip rivers. Rumours about Tom Brady. Rumors about all sorts of quarterbacks are could be a QB CHANGE IN CHICAGO TEDDY BRIDGEWATER. Maybe heading there will kick it around with our Buddy Andrew facility on next Ramona Shelburne Information John Ireland. Espn LA all right Mason in Ireland. Show Ramona shelburne information. And it's turned out to be a very busy day in the NFL. We didn't know how much sports news we would get this week but the NFL open for business and this just in breaking news. Michael Brock. Irs The defensive Lineman for the rams is leaving the Ravens signed him to a three year deal and to help us break down. Everything's been going on in the. Nfl is our buddy Andrew. Silvano who I feel like I just saw in the NFL network so Andrew for doing this man. How are you good? How are you guys more important? Everyone's staying healthy and safe and all that so far. So good Ramona's in one place. I'm in another Lindsay's in another funchess's in a fourth place so it's a four now and you're in a fifth. We're on a five-way today Andrew which is rare as you know kind of what we did have been at work. Today I was on one stage. We had Jim Trotter the newsroom. We Watching video booth we add four pilla. Cerro Garafolo all at their homes. Well let's see. Well Steve Smith at his house Joe Thomas at his house yeah whole new world whole new. Or let's let's jump into some of this stuff. Let's start with the trade that I can't figure out because it seems like the Arizona cardinals hoodwinked the Texans. But you follow this stuff. Closer than me. Some picks were involved but deandre hopkins go into Arizona. And David Johnson's go into Houston. Is that as one sided as I think it is. I think John you're on to it. I don't know that there's much more to say. Except most of the League saying why now Hopkins wants to get paid but he still has three years and nearly forty million left on his contract with the way the free agent sorry with the way the wide receiver market goes He thinks he's ready to get extended. He wanted to money on that deal somewhere with. Julio Jones with the same representation did want and did get eventually last year in in Atlanta but to give them away for an essence a to. I mean they swap four is here in Arizona. Had A David Johnson problem. They couldn't just cut him because the contract was written where the Catholic celebration would've been awful so they were GonNa have to stick with him when they put a transition tag on Kenyan drake this morning. A lot of eyebrows raised waiting on here. You know you're not gonNA play both of these guys Kenyan. Drake exactly Then they got Houston to take David Johnson off their hands so basically they swap for is Houston takes their David Johnson problem and they get a future hall of Famer for a second round. Pick to put with Larry Fitzgerald and to Unlocked potential if you will marry next year it's It's a bit of bamboozling. And it's also honestly if you're Shawn Watson it's one of these things where you're through three years to start thinking about your long term deal there in Houston and I don't know how you sit down and have this conversation with Bill Brian. Because the twenty nine percent of the targets when the ball came out of Watson's last year went to the Andre Hopkins. He looked at them over and over and over again. So I'm going to read you a sense from Bill Barnwell story Andrew Honestly Admire Arizona. General Manager Steve Audacity asking to swap fourth rounders. It's as if someone offered you a thousand dollars for your copy of Mr Deeds and you ask that person for more before saying Yes yes. I agree with what Bill said. It's basically take our biggest salary problem off our heads and Oh yeah. Can we just send you a second round? Pick for the Andrea Hopkins. Did you guys you? That's going to give you guys content for a week at the NFL network. We're well bill. O'brien I'm sorry to cut you off. John Supposedly He. Indiana Hopkins may not get along. Okay great show me a wide receiver a big name wide receiver? That hasn't had an issue with US coach his quarterback at one point and not many of them maybe. Larry Fitzgerald the under Haffkine now. Joins is the only one? But the Andrei Hopkins isn't Tara Loans. Any he's not Dez Bryant. I mean He. He's not this troublemaker. You never know where his head is when he's GonNa show up for work That's not this guy we're telling me Andrew Sicilian our buddy from the NFL network and Andrew. I'm going to throw three things out there. That are kind of in the air and you tell me which ones you buy in which ones you don't want is Philip. Rivers goes to the COLTS TO TEDDY. Bridgewater goes to the bears in three. Tom Brady goes to either the bucks or the chargers. Which one of those do you buy in in which one st and oddity by any of them? I'M GONNA start with bridgewater because that was going around awhile today our Guy Mike Garafolo and NFL network. Who I trust and do so blindly. Because he's good at his job says that Bridgewater Chicago is not going to happen. Not unless nothing changes. I mean we've heard potentially nick foles. Who knows Andy Dalton? But he doesn't think the water thing Has Legs as for Philip Rivers Daniel? Jeremiah knows the chargers and he knows rivers charger games of the radio. You guys know that. Dj said on our network. He would be shocked. His word not mine. If Philip rivers is not a cold by the time this thing is over with though he thinks rivers is going there and think about it if the colts today just traded the thirteenth overall. Pick for a D. Lineman then they don't think you would have to go to big moves here that their quarterback is at thirteen so there and their quarterback is likely a free agent and Philip rivers makes sense with the Frank Reich connection for Brady. It's seems that it's the Patriots the bucks or the chargers I keep waiting for some dark horse at a nowhere. I don't know where that dark horse is gonNA come from and to be honest with you. I don't think there is a dark horse and we're looking at a situation in which the idea that Tom Brady. Would at Penn suitors knocking down. His door might have been completely off base. Andrew what happens to the NFL draft? It's a great question right now. It's still on and that was announced again today. Here's what I think it's GonNa look like the MLB drag you guys have seen graft on on on MLB network It's it's gotten bigger over the years but go back seven eight ten years whatever. It was go back to when Mike. Trout was racking Mike. Trout was in the studio in New Jersey. He was one of the few. If not the only guys there to smile for the cameras and shake some hands and do an interview there but for the most part it was done in a TV studio with maybe a representative from each team but a lot of cameras and team buildings and a lot of it's a TV show. But it's not a massive spectacle. I would assume that it looks like that Andrew. This this just happened while we were talking. Adam. Schefter got his hands on a memo that the League has released and this. I'm guessing this is an unexpected. I'll ask you. They've implemented new rules for free agency. Postponed the off season training activities indefinitely. I this is probably in response to what atom started reporting last night that a Lotta. Nfl GM's were uncomfortable. Kind of going full steam ahead in this seems to curtail it a little bit. I'm guessing this is not a surprise. No did had to be done. And if you look at the calendar here the draft so the League meeting is off the League and we knew that last week league meeting scheduled to begin with twenty nine that was going to be in Palm Beach. That was all the owners all the coaches all GM some media And it's where the competition committee is done. Things like that where rules were draped pass interference replay for example last year. So that is done. The next date on the calendar is April. Sixth for the new coaches for example like Mike McCarthy has his players in the building April sixth to put his program into place as the new Guy Dallas. That can happen in in the current world on April six so they had to do something and this is for. Now what they're GONNA DO GUYS I. If people can't get on planes you can't ask players to show up. Leave their families and go to work at the majority. What maybe the Patriots and cowboys may still be open to non essential employees but the majority of NFL building have like all other companies offices industries. Shut down so the. Nfl had to do this. Andrew thank you for doing this. You've been working all day and we appreciate you jumping on with us When you get home stay safe likewise guys. I'm just a guy who walked into south watching television. I hear you right back at you. My friend thank you. That's Andrew Sicilian coming up next Austin from the chargers and this is one of the few good stories of the year maybe of the last five years and we could all use one. We'll get into it with Ecuador next. Espn La Mason and Ireland. I'm John Ireland. I'm in my house. Ramona shelburne filling in for maize. She's in her house producer. Lindsay is in her house. And Michael is in the studio. And we're GONNA try and track down Austin actor and if you go read Ramona head. You read it earlier. Robert Clem Co. Who's a great football writer? His time line. He kinda tells the story of Ecuador so I'll just jump around a little bit here. He said Back in two thousand seventeen he was at a Colorado Glencoe was at a Colorado pro day for the University of Colorado. Watching some really good players guys who he knew. We're going to get drafted and win the Colorado players finished. The school was Nice enough to let small college players from across the region workout on their turf for scouts and the scouts were tired. Been on the road for months. They wanted to get to their next stop and some of them laugh so he said they're like forty guys left and most of them had no shot like two hundred and fifty. Pounds offensive tackles three hundred now. Five nine linebackers. They're happy to be there. Just joking around this kind of moment in the Sun. And he said there's a guy stretching in the corner and compression gear. He's short shredded. His quads. Look like they belong on a Horse Austin cler after some guys jump. He jumped forty fi forty inches. Vertical and Clint goes looking at the scouts and he said they all start picking up and writing notes. He was at a school called Western State Colorado University. I mean he had zero Division One offers. His mom was there. She raised him on her own. He lines up four four forty. He's mad he said could have been faster but three teams wrote down and the chargers signed him. He went in as the six string running. Back in two thousand seventeen wasn't supposed to make but in the fourth preseason game you know that's the game with they're just throwing guys out there. He balled up one hundred. Eight yards from scrimmage special teams tackle. Few weeks later he got the call that he made it. He jumped up four spots on the depth chart and that was in two thousand seventeen the year that the chargers moved to Los Angeles. Today Austin signed a four year. Twenty four and a half million dollar contract. How cool is that and joining us right. Now is Austin Austin congratulations. Man could not be happier for you. I know it's a tough time for everybody. We're going through some stuff but this has gotta make you feel great and it's got to be a great day for your mom. Hey Yeah I I appreciate you guys. Have me on a Free State's backstory to took me back a little bit? My mom very happy family happy. We're all Kinda staying coin team right now. So of course not everything was going on but In good spirits hoping that this will clear out soon is when you when you were in that stage when you're just trying out trying to get people to watch it and pay attention new. What did you think was going to happen? SHOE. I mean you're talking about like the day right. Yeah yeah so I had no idea going into you know what to expect. It was actually kind of brutal brutal process just because there was more than just me Afro Day where we were like doing are and then they cut us down to like three people and they basically John around forty s and then after that they cut us all the way down from those I probably twenty people I didn't have a program out in school. 'cause there's too much snow on the field so I had to go to see you and so this is after already gone so the scouts are ready to get out of there and it was a very limited processing so I ran. Well ask jobs well enough that I was able to go onto the next. You know part of the pro day and was very limited as I only. Three people made it and they ended up doing enough to to gain some interest. And finally you know. Push forward to get an opportunity. Austin is our guest signed a four year. Twenty four million dollar contract today with the chargers after basically walking on for a term that most people could understand he walked onto a pro day and got noticed Austin. When when you look back at that I always wonder in. You're an athlete. So you have confidence I know in the back of your head. You're thinking I can play with these guys. I just need to show them what I can do. But on the other hand you know it's a game in a business and you don't WanNA dream too big. So did you ever allow yourself to dream that this day could happen or were you just take one day time for me you know? It was hard to see if like Dang. I can't even hang with these guys. You know you mentioned that mentality was like that but it really wasn't. It was kind of like how good can I be this moment? You know in college. And then maybe see how it compares. What happened opportunity to play in the pros? And you know that's similar to the process of you know how I've been going about my business lately. It's just been like you said one step at a time. You know. Look at the sixty. What's the role that I have now? And they're trying to build the role that I've been presented and take advantage of that opportunity and I've just been taking the most advantage of you know the places and the opportunities that have been You know my first two years. By first year I was mainly a special teams guy ended up leading the league and tackles on pot. You know so. I took advantage of that opportunity. Got Some more offense rest and then ended up. You know getting into a starting role for a couple games at the beginning of this last season and have a pretty decent year and then ended up getting the contract. But it's always been what year two times are just focused on this moment and try to build so have they talked to you at all. About what your role be next year. I know there's some just uncertainty with the running back situation With the chargers they're gonNA pay that kind of money. Are you playing you? You're probably right? I mean I'm assuming I feel like I was. I was one of the guys last Syrian. I felt like I was basically starter you know maybe on paper Mellon Starter over me but I felt like I was neck -sition where I'm contributing so much the office that they're trying to get better field anyway I can and started then too so I'm assuming my role is going to be pretty similar to what it was last year the lineup and the sly and the outside the backfield is well and whoever back to the quarterback all hopefully helping the mouth. 'cause it's probably going to be someone new. Give an option to you know have little easy. Easy catching gain of up some yardage. We're talking to Austin who Who signed for your contract today? Austin did it help you that Anthony? Lynn your coach was was of an I mean. He didn't come from small schools. You did but at the same time. Nobody was nobody was thinking he was gonna come into the League and like the League on fire and he worked his way. He was known as a guy who kind of made the most of his ability. I'm curious was he like a champion for you or was he harder on you because he knew that you were like him He was definitely harder just now because as the situation but just because I was running back coach running backs for twenty years My head coach for those who are listening so he came in and now he's head coach so he definitely always has his eye out for you know for the running backs by making sure doing the right drills. I remember by rookie year goes off. We have these things landmarks as far as like where we're trying to you know. Hit the hit a spas going across the line and I think I was off by about six inches. And he came jogging across the field ripping into me. Because I was hitting the right rookie year I was like Oh man. He's got the serious stuff. I didn't even know who he was there. Anything ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. You know. Super Nervous but You know ended up getting better. And then you know that sorta calming down and realize. Hey let's try to help us. You know he's not done the best physician that you can just running back on that team. You know anybody back that joins us who's GONNA see firsthand. They oh yeah the Biz especially when it comes to the running back squad. Hey I'm wondering. How do you celebrate a big contract like this or big monumental day in your life like you know I know contracts like this or financial security? But they're also validation And you know I I remember when I when I signed something not not nearly twenty four million dollars but I don't know four or five years ago. I felt like I signed one something like that. It was validating contract. I said honey we're going to says ler we're going to do what we're GONNA do. The white men can't be rosy Praznik go into is that right. What do you do when you're in social isolation though it's kind of funny story going around the Las Vegas to celebrate but aged and he was he lives in Vegas is on the way to celebrate with him by going to dinner and I was talking to somebody and I'm like yeah I'm going Vegas Right now? And it got published and so everyone just made assumptions. I was going to Party Vegas pretty down to Earth guys costs fan. We talk about just how you overcome. So many things gets the spot. 'cause it wasn't like you know it's drafted and giving the money up front. You know I mean it's not like you know we don't make pay you know even on the minimum but Just being able to work on the minimum for three years and worked my way into a role where the charged with actually have a chance to put a one year. You know Tender on me or they can you know if they have enough confidence and a good enough relationship. We ended up getting a deal done which you know made me feel better. Even you know as a business person as well just knowing that the charges do have confidence and then what I bring to the table Austin could not be happier for you and we appreciate you coming on with us. I know it's weird because there's this cloud over the city as we get through this virus but we thought it'd be fun to share your story because it was such a good one. And congratulations most of all. Thank you thank you. I appreciate you guys all right awesome. We'll stay safe. Most of all will talk to you soon. Have a good offset as well okay? There's an Austin from the chargers who walked on in in a tryout and today got twenty four million dollars. You're right we're wanted. There's a day when you feel like you've made it yeah. There's a day that you can relax that all your hard work is is finally reward in in a time where most of us are very nervous and very scared about what's happening. He had a very good day to day. Okay coming up next. Five o'clock fasttrack instead of doing fasttrack for half an hour. Were doing it for an hour and we're doing next remote information. I'm John Ireland. Espn LA.

Join the guys live every Sunday night after true detective on the ringers YouTube, Twitter and Facebook pages. Welcome. Welcome welcome. Come one, come all to the dentist football podcast. My name is Danny hyphen. I'm joined by my co host Anco Danny Danny Kelly. What up what is up man, we are here in studio, we got producer, Jim and fulltime Craig alot? Hello Pam starting Sean Manion this week. It's maniacal. Actually before we even get to some urgent news, which is Ramos running back early just tweeted at McKinsey basis. Bet she said who got MacKenzie businesses. I g Twitter is emoji pretty easy to find out. If you like in this world, the tweet that Google that's the the long shot of the week for de officio. That's a low percentage, but a high it's a high risk IRO workplace. And that's why we're not starting tell you really this. That's bulletin board. Material. He's not taking the Cowboys seriously. Thinking about that girl. All right. I'm really pumped. This is the divisional round. It's probably the best weekend. Maybe the whole year for DFS. I'm pretty excited as Kevin O'Connor would say pumped in jacked, and I'm pretty pumped because we're gonna some fun. We all of made it if it's lineup. We have no idea what it is. And by the end of this podcast may decay and full-time Craig we will live here with one agreed upon DFS lineup. We're gonna play the one and only fan duel half PR, we're going in style. So we're swinging for the fences, but we're going to greet there's gonna be blood bloodshed tears, hopefully name, Colin if we're any good at this. We're doing the full lineup all four games, by the way, not one day the whole weekend. Yeah. Because you know, it's like daily fantasy, but like types to the weekends like twice daily daily by. Let's good jeopardy. So yeah, we're going to run position by position and screaming each other until I get see if we can construct lineup at the end. I will tell everybody if we are over or under in price. And if that's the case, we'll figure it out. All right quarterbacks. I I've injury luck. I have Nick foles. Oh, I have Philip rivers a shit. I did luck. Because he I I only liked breeze Goff and Mahomes luck in this. And luck is the only one that his team cannot win without him. I don't think that she's pass. Rush is going to get to him their defense sucks. He's gonna have time. And it seems like the chiefs of good pass rush. But like they also get the just pin their ears back. I think the I think the culture in the game and you shred them. I like so I like the luck pick. I went for value this week at quarterback. I think if you look at it Philip rivers is the lowest valued quarterback among all his starters. I mean, I kind of like the Nick foles one too now that I think about it though. But I mean, if you look at rivers last few games, his stats are pretty bad. But he he faced the ravens the Broncos in the ravens in the last three games. I think that's probably part of why he's undervalued right now. He actually finished the season as QB eleven ever seventeen point seven points per game. I think that he is undervalued, and I wanna spend my money. On my roster this week on skill position. So that's why I went with rivers. I just think that if you look at the the relative value of how much he's got seventy three hundred right now. So that's eleven hundred extra dollars. This ma'am on skill positions compared to lock so that that's why I like rivers, but I do I kind of do like foles too. So I won't with falls one because he's a Demi God. And you don't want to go against one of those two disguise into be a shootout. And he's the cheapest shootout option, I think nor Orleans us giving up Twenty-nine most points to the pass and Phil although one hundred dollars cheaper. I think they charge you're gonna win more dedicated to run the football and the eagles don't have a prominent running back whatsoever. This game's going to be in the forties and thirties and Nick foles one hundred thousand dollars cheaper than Andrew luck. Who was my second option? I originally had luck. And I thought that the difference between luck and foles a thousand dollars was too great compared to the potential of scoring between the two and I'd rather have that a thousand somewhere else? I can see it. I liked that argument. Concede concede unluck. I'm not sure if I want fools rivers, I'll concede unluck, Oklahoma one hundred dollar difference. All right. So we got to choose between foles and rivers. So what is it? What's going to be, Dan? I think you're kind of. We both gave you our pitch. What's the weather going to be like in New England? I I'm might be snowy. I'm going to merge this. I'm gonna already break the rules that we the arbitrary rules. I'm going to break this conversation and merged into the running back thing. Just because I I think the patriots are going to be running the bulletin. I think it's weird to say. But I think after the ravens just ran the ball a bunch against the chargers. And then over what made a big deal of like the chargers having seven defensive backs in the in the secondary like kind of playing safeties as linebackers. They were able to do that for two reasons. One their defensive line kind of dominated the ravens offensive line. And if the charges defensive line didn't do that than those, you know, Adrian Phillips on the safeties open the box would have got crushed. They also kind of knew what the ravens we're going to do. They're not going to know what the patriots are doing. So they're not going to be able to play those guys and often attention here. But what I'm saying is if the chargers aren't able to know what the offense is doing. There's a real chance that they're going to get exposed to having those linebackers. I think the patriots. Going to have like a very like Sony Michelle dominated maybe even like Rex Burkhead kind of game plan. So I'm actually intrigued by the idea of not a full rivers while doing better than the ravens not being in the shootout. And maybe Nick foles. So I'm going to foles helium foles. I'm gonna concede on that. Because now that I think about it. I think it's gonna be really cold tensely, windy, high Henshaw, the high thirties Nowy. Yeah. So in in a shootout shoot at number one. I think that's smart too. It's going to be in a dome, but and the one thing I think that the saints do really really well right now is recipes her and foles has been very good against. Yeah. Just not getting sacked. He's he's that's like I think the biggest thing that he brings to the eagles offenses ability to avoid sacks and get the ball out quick. So kind of like that arm into that one quarterback done. That was pretty painless running backs. I went with Moreland MAC, Damian Williams, and then at flex because of what I just said about the patriots Rex Burkhead. What about y'all get? So I share to Danny hypothesis. I also have Marlin MAC, and Damian Williams, and my other other running back Ezekiel Elliott, I knew it liked you. All right. So I got Kamara eighty four hundred zeal Elliott eighty seven hundred then sproles as my flex spending. We could probably agree to go with Elliot like we can just put him down. He's the highest ceiling highest floor guy on the field because. Yeah, early and Melvin Gordon are both shaken up and maybe splitting times the C J Anderson in Austin cler and zeke's lock for twenty carries into touchdown. I mean, like what we said last week last six games of the season Elliott had twenty two carries hundred plus yards and seven catches a game. And then last week he had twenty six hundred thirty seven yard touchdown four catches thirty yards. He's just now sued belco. I think we can green on that. Where you guys are going to have to kind of. I think we need to decide between like Kamara and Mack who do you like more? Why do you like MAC tell me what you like about MAC this week? Chiefs defense sucks at rush defense. And I don't buy the idea that even if the colts fall behind Maccabi useless. I think max gonna get his no matter what how this game goes way safer than it. Seems I also don't. I mean, the last time they played the saints in the eagles played is very different game. But it was basically marking his best game of the second best game of the year. And I kind of makes me framed for the price for Kamara. Right. I have a question. So I think we're down valley, we're down Marlin MAC. Yeah. I think way more frayed of Damien Williams because Spencer where we have not what is usage will be even though I think Williams more talented. So guys were priced similar Damian Williams that will run through before we just lock these in. I mean, we've got Sony Michelle who I love sixty six hundred Damien Williams is sixty one Rex Burkhead at fifty five sixty four we're talking about flex. Yeah. Exactly wide receiver. So tied-in. Why we I think Ecuador is an interesting choice to because right now Melvin Gordon still nursing at what was the ankle injury. He's been limited at practice. I don't know if he's gonna play if he does play. There's always injury red like aggravated or whatever some of us. Don't hope people get hurt decay cheese, the thing with Damian Williams is he has the. Potential to be the lead running back in like the best offense in football with the highest over under and the team gets the running back over all like gets the ball all the time. Yeah. Then Spencer where it's been out for a while the hamstring injury. And he was an active last week. Even though he the on week seventeen even though he played a practice the whole week. So we don't really know if they're going to incorporate him that much it almost feels like they've kind of moved onto Damian Williams. Daryl Williams, the backup gut garbage time. Russia's last time he was just the best player in the field visibly every time you watch. It's like he's making people miss. He's the best receivers the best runner. He should. He's also the best value in this group. So they're ten red zone looks and there's last three games slot. All right. I think we stick with them. All right. So full Zeke, Damian Williams MAC Affleck's, basically, I feel like Mary either end up we cut actually we'll circle back receivers. I have Michael Thomas, Amari, Cooper, and Dontrelle Inman. Yes. I have a marketer. I call. Fight me. I have Sean Jeffrey golden Tate in Amari Cooper. Oh my God. I think we've got we have all different people. I've got Robert woods, Nelson, Aguilar and Chris HOGAN, so we have we have two people on the Mark Cooper high train. All right. I'll put him in lock him in. I've everyone host. He kiss hated more. Coop is all year. Tony. There's still hasn't do cheap. They expect him. Here's my concern with Robert woods, and I really like Robert woods. But I mean, he's predominantly kind of basically since Cooper Cup got hurt. Largely. They moved Robert woods inside to the slot. And then Josh Reynolds, but on the outside and the Cowboys have to pretty good slot corners. Anthony Brown's good in the slot. Like the Cowboys actually, it's one of their better defensive things. I think the Cowboys I mean Deka you wrote about how like the Cowboys defense verse play action sub optimal the Rams, right? Run more plaque than anybody in the league. I mean, it's one of the most in heavy offense has ever. That's why I wanted to get around receiver in there. So I'm concerned about the Rams receiver though, whether we can predict it that's how I feel about the saints wide receivers. That's why I kind of don't want anyone on the saints because they spread it around too much. I don't think you can bet on one person even Michael Thomas. Micheal Thomas, is that a lot of dads. Yeah. I agree. I could talk off Thomas, especially to tyreek hill, which was Fresno. And had he's another guy who can put up four point weeks. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know if I wanna spend all my money on a guy who can put up four points when I can honestly get somebody much cheaper with a much higher floor like alshon Jeffery who said fifty yards or touchdown each of the past five games. I don't love alshon jet. I mean, he's a guy who kind of I don't think he matches up with a well-designed secondary. So here, here's here's one stat for the Saint secondary. I think their thirtieth again Devi away against him one receiver thirty first individually against number two receivers. So they have struggled. You know that they've cleaned up their defense quite a bit in the second half of the season. But they still struggled against receivers specially top two guys. So that's why I had aga- Lor on my list on then we have the full stack with Jeffrey. Yeah. Foes, I have full Jeffrey and tape because I think the eagles either it's going to be garbage time or it's going to be. Close shootout. You guys are out on the Rams receivers. It's nothing. I'm out on the Rams receiver just feel anyway by the saints or I don't know who's going to do what? The saints. I'm more confident that it'll be Michael Thomas, and then other people I mean, this was the saints eagles. The first round was the trick wants myth breakout game. But I agree that it's like it's trying to guess who they're going to do is fools ironed. And I I'm not foolish enough to believe. I know what Sean Payton drew Brees are gonna do. I mean was a thanksgiving game with drafted dudes crushed it. I mean, so with the I mean, so how strongly do you feel Robert woods versus just the Rams passing game decay? I was more bullish just on the entire passing game. So I'd like woods woods or cooks. And they're right in the same range woods, seventy five hundred cokes seventy four hundred. I don't know. Like, if you guys have I guess an inkling on who you like more. I don't we don't need to go with Rams necessarily. But the stat that I was point out in Bill Barham appointed to sell the Cowboys posted to pass rating of hundred twelve against play action this year, which is the six worth worst in the NFL. And then Wilson and this just pisses me off because the Seahawks didn't do it enough. But Wilson torch Dallas on play action last week. He was nine or ten for a hundred eleven yards. Eleven point one yards for a tent they threw deep, and they were very effective against it. And I don't think the same. I don't think the Rams are going to do with the Seahawks did and just try and run the whole day. And so that was my argument for either of those guys I'd like to go with with woods was overcooked. Yeah. Okay. I was leaning cooks but not enough to care find Robert so fair right now, we got what foles Zeke, Damian Williams alshon, Jeffery Maury Cooper now. No, alshon. We just have a Mark Cuban Robert woods, unless we Shawn Dickey. What do you think about Al, Sean? I like it. I'm into one of those guys whether it's Jeffrey or agile or or Tate cheaper. Yeah. We're going to get screwed in the long run maybe safer to go with a guy like golden Tate who paid off last week. What what about with the touchdown? What what do you think happens in colts chiefs because here's the thing. If we think that the colts games going to be shootout, we have Moreland MAC. But if we think it's gonna be a lot of passing we could throw t y Hilton there. Throw Ibran their tight end. But I'm kinda like if we think there's gonna be these passing Dontrelle? So here's my number of the colts snaps last week, there were seventy eight total. So I seventy three total TY Hilton played fifty seven seventy eight percent Dontrelle Inman had fifty one seventy percent than just Rogers forty four. I kind of really love Inman against this chiefs offense because the chiefs defense sucks, I think it's going to be a lot of thing. I think that he's the best better bang for the buck than Tate, just numbers wise and targets and all those things I know touchdown. I think in the last three games, I wanna say, yeah. So I mean, there's volatility there, but I kind of liked that better than Tate. But maybe. I could go I could go for it. Yeah. I could too. He's banged up are now he's limited with a shoulder. That's the that's the that's the big knock they play Saturday. So you could monitor his health, and if he doesn't play you could swap out for somebody who's exactly sure let's do handed of tentative Inman all right handed tight and I'm really excited about title. Yeah. Well, yeah. This changes things for me. What do we do? You got hyphen. Trump's kelsey. Danny kelly. I got I had Iran penciled in here. I don't know if we're going to be able to afford Kelsey at this point. I have Mr Robert gronkowski. Ooh. How I explain that to me. Okay. I don't think we are putting enough thought into the difference between the playoff patriots in the regular season. Patriots was fair. Scott, take it is absolutely possible that they have been sitting on gronk for the entire season and just saving him because they knew that they were going to be where they were right now grunk twenty nine he's not thirty nine his last three playoff games. He's averaged nine catches for seventy two yards and a touchdown. His last three playoff games. He's played the last game. He played nine catches one sixteen two touchdowns in the Super Bowl. And there's an equal. I mean, he's so he's the fourth most expensive behind Brown Kelsey in arts. And there is an equal gap in pricing between Travis Kelsey and gronk as there is between gronk and hunter Henry he's he's just too cheap for his ceiling. I think you're exactly right on that. Logic may issue with it is the chargers are really well. Built to look very athletic to stop him. I mean, if you I mean Derwin James is like a perfect person and this iteration of the patriots offense without Josh, Gordon. I mean told me from wrong, I don't know if there's really been a team with a decent defense that has doubled drunk and not been able to shut down there. Other guys one on one. So I'm kind of worried if I mean, if I'm the chargers and to have really good defense again points, if you double him, I don't know who their other receivers are beating and that's why I think it'd be more run heavy. So I'm not convinced that he kinda dominates. And that's a great argument. It's all we talked about this before we started recording about how there is a little bit of a gut feeling how when it comes to daily fan. You're the gun on ground. You're you're right. On Monday morning. We're like, man. Why don't you get three touchdowns? He's he's grown, of course. Yep. You touchdown. Don't you know, I like that logic? I'm gonna throw another stat at you. Yeah. Please. Do this is interesting. I guess guess which team was number one in DVD versus tight ends this year lows charges charge. Yeah. Who the most that's the thing? And the other thing about them playing all those seven defensive backs last week is that it's crazy. But like it's not that crazy because they play six defensive backs the most in football, they lead that twenty seventeen. I they're they're weirdly they have really fiscal guys were Cape, especially not that elusive this year. But I'm torn, but here's I had Kelsey. But now that we have full I would stack him with earth's actually. But we probably can't afford them at that moment. Yeah. Inch. Wow. I'm intrigued by this croc. He's he's coming off a bye. I just feel like what do you think? I think gronk is like it's not a logical pick. It's. It's. And getting gronk is a contrarian place kind of fun to be. That would be like winning with gronk would feel better than winning with everyone else. I work mitt that couldn't you see next week when the patriots win that gronk will now be the two hundred dollars behind Kelsey. We'll be like, of course, he is. Of course, that would be more fun to win with cross than any other scenario. This is like Nick foles and gronkowski. This is like I can be swayed obviously, the chargers defense thing is fantastic point. I was literally going off the fact of like right about that. I'm feel stupid of gronk goes nuts. And we're like man he was so cheap. I want the charges to win. But I also want rob gronkowski for touchdown. So this is interesting. But I also kind of just want trust patriots fans about this game. I might like my elevator pitch in this game is just listened to the fans, which is this team is unethical and weirdly one dimension without Josh, Gordon. The chargers are versatile and athletic as hell and just really well balanced. And I just think it's a bad batch of them. But you could convince me to rock you even this kind of actively dumb. But I kinda I'm kinda info Blake jar. When it is. Would you be surprised to find out that Bill? Had gronk play all season with a Little Rock in his shoe like an actor does. So they're like completely walked though, he just he just takes it out for the plane, superman, here's what it is. It's they there's a report special report from Seth wicker Shannon last week of January that they hired Daniel day Lewis cares to as a consultant to teach gronk how to pretend to be hobbled. He's actually been training with lebrons guy doing. He's actually at peak form. I wouldn't fake lines trade story. I'll check we'll do it. All right. Let's in crock right now for Shinsen gigs. And we'll circle back and see if we have the money to upgrade at Hebron or someone else. Circling back the defense on that. No. I got the chargers I do too. I have a Cowboys fan. I just could be swayed so easily I think with the chargers I'm Brady looks shook when he gets pass rush in a way that patriots fans say they haven't seen basically ever. I mean, it's the cheapest of the defenses that I want the Cowboys eagles are colts. And it's the cheapest of the other things the best bet. I that's why I wanted to charter to is the chargers have that sack fumble potential because is such a good pass rushing team. Melvin ingram. Just went off last week. Bo says the next factor. They've got Derwin James who is used as a Blitzer in just kind of everywhere they got a couple all pros in their secondary. I don't know it just to me it just adds up to potential turnovers. Like, you said Brady's been just not quite as sharp as he has been in previous seasons. They don't have much talent on that offense either. So yeah, I like the chargers though, you know, picking against the the patriots at home is always a little bit scary NASCAR, it it's this is the end of the dynasty bright. Here is the end right says, the China is Iraq, Iran. Caskey fun fact actually believe that. But you know. Okay. So here is our finalized lineup. So far, we have Nick foles Ezekiel Elliott, Damien Williams, Amari Cooper, Robert. Woods Dontrelle Inman, rob gronkowski, Marlin MAC. And the chargers defense we are five hundred dollars over. Spent a little too much money. So which we do I think we should move Morlin MAC to flex and then cut him and then because he's too expensive. Then we should cut him and save money at running back because we like Damien Williams value. Yeah. We're not getting rid of Zeke. And so that saves us to seventy three hundred you get rid of him. Now, we have sixty eight hundred free, and there's a lot of good options in the cheaper range. There's Sony Michelle. There's lebronettes tied to tight ends. This Mark Ingram. Williams is a lot of interesting, dude. So de k what do you think about flex options? So my thought right now is we could either keep gronk in there at tight end and go with a guy like Sony, Michelle Williams or Iran, or we can drop Comcast ski put Iran in there. And then find a guy who's like sixty four hundred dollars. Which is the Mark Ingram. Nelson. Agar Agar lower range of. Guys, which I kind of lean towards that. Because I don't feel great about Michelle. I don't feel great about Mike Williams. So I think since we none of us really felt that great about gronkowski. Even though it was kind of a fun pick. I think maybe we drop gronk can put Iran in there. And then get like a sixty four hundred dollar. Okay. So so I just did that. So I dropped and replaced him with abra. Now that gives us sixty four hundred isn't the best option on his list. Grunk? It will that will also I don't know it makes me feel better at Hebron because I believe the culture going to be a shootout. And it makes me feel better to have more colts in there after we cut back. Okay. I it makes me feel better have imitate Andy Brown. So would these remaining guys I'll admit that trust Nelson Adler more than gronk, and it will Afghan. I don't know how they're the. They're the same price think it's pretty close. Honestly, I had eat here. Let me let me give you my Adler pitch because I had him on my list. He's played the least amount of snaps. He's played the last four weeks is ninety percent. He's playing time. The saints again are three I in delay against number two receivers, I think alshon Jeffery count his as their number one Aguilar his stats last four weeks with foale's at quarterback six targets recap. Just thirty two yards week seventeen. He had six catches five are sorry. Five catches forty yards in two touchdowns week before that against Houston. Five catches one hundred sixteen yards in touchdown. And then the week before that two targets one catch eight yards. So he's a little bit boomer bust. Definitely. But gronk is extremely boomer bust. Also, a my I'm my advocation is for playoff gronk. Which I know is a swing for the fence in his is the opposite of analytical. What are you can be the tiebreaker on this super well for the also I think echo is interesting. I still love Rex Burkhead. But I understand. I don't think I'm gonna win you guys. Don't want back like ninety of them fair. I'm not gonna win this battle. Is also Ingram. Mark ingram. Could be really good one. I think Craig just really wants play. Gronk. I'm just we do. Should we do Craig this? We trust Craig's got here. Just go at this. All gronk. Remember the last on our last many pot? Introducing DFS we talked about how tournaments are all about stars in scrubs and gronk is kind of somehow both. Yeah. That's you know, what that's a value. You're getting story into scrub. Wow. Look at you. That's some serious Nelson. Thank you. You know, what that's actually I kind of liked that argument just because my little tagline like that argument. You know, what you're right. He is a star to scrub. Thank you. So we're going gronk. I caught it. You know, what I kind of weirdly like this lineup. That's that's that's good. All right. So who do you guys look at and when one of these guys just completely screws us who's it's going to be other than gronk? Who's like the Mark Mark euchre for sure. Oh, really know. Actually, here's here's actually why I am not worried about more Cooper. I think the Rams are gonna score a lot of points in the Cowboys are going to have to the volume. I think he's gonna so much value. Also, I won't feel that dumb because he's not that expensive. He's a pretty good bet for the money. I'm surprised actually I think he's going to get so much. I kinda think Robert woods. Now proper with two seven five hundred dollars. He's more expensive than Al Sean cooks Keenan, Allen, efficient use over money woods. But. I trust Danny Kelly Kelly. Well, all right. So I think we're good with this. So we're gonna quarterback Nick foles running back Ezekiel Elliott running back, Danny Williams receivers Dontrelle Inman, Amari Cooper, Robert woods, tight end, Eric, Iran. We are flexing rob gronkowski. Jeff is man once told me was like wearing flip flops with jeans, it's frowned upon. Thank you. Thank you fulltime. Craig? Thank you, Jim. Most of all thank you, everyone for listening a best of luck with your lineups and enjoy the divisional round. So you guys next week?

I'm assuming your Twitter handle field is just at field Yates right wrong accepts in there. Ross. I think creativity has long been one of my Forte's in life. So securing field Yates when so many others were likely after that Andel some seven or eight years ago was one of my most notable achievements in life. I love it. So we're going to do we're going to do a the way too early twenty nineteen mock draft, and so people are clear this is not a two team league. Obviously. Right. This is just two of the best fantasy experts on the planet going back and forth with the order in which they would take players right now looking ahead to next year. So I guess we'll start with you. Evan number-one pick who's in the running. And who would you take based on the information? We have at hand now. I'm gonna go saquon Barkley. I think that he was the best running back in the league as a rookie. I think he should have been the all pro selection at running back on the all pro team. I think that the giants run blocking can't possibly get any worse. They can only get better. There's only one way to go. He was also one of the youngest running backs in the league, obviously as a rookie. So he has room for improvement. I think. And just his overall skill set. The giants willingness to give him the ball, you know, twenty five thirty times a game. All that is positive. And I'm hoping that the giants will add a quarterback in the draft. Ideally, Dwayne Haskins. I think that if we could get Dwayne Haskins onto the giants. He he had some mobility you add some big play potential to the giants offense. We get back a healthy. Odell Beckham Evan Ingram was sidelined for much of last season. This giants off fence should be able to take a significant step forward. I think it begins at the quarterback position. But I think that this offense they finished number thirteen in the NFL in football outsider offensive. And that was with missing guys and with having really bad offensive line play that I think can open that can only stand to improve feel Europe at number two. I do want you guys though to at least make one comment on what the guy says before yet if selection before who would you have been debating at number one field, and who would you ultimately take now at number two. So I can make a case for four pliers and my ultimate decision. I've got I order lifted was saquon Barkley number one overall for a lot of the reasons that Ed and highlighted in a league where teams can sniff what you're going to do saquon Barkley still average five yards a carry behind a reshaped offensive line. But a passing game that's tiered virtually nobody he scored eleven rushing touchdowns thinks the role is bound to be quite similar going into next season. Take one would have been my pick as well. At number two. I gotta be honest with you guys. I don't want to be too much of a prisoner of the moment. But I nearly move this guy that I'm gonna take number two down to like number three in my favorite order or some to stick with Todd Gurley Todd Gurley over the past couple of weeks has been a backup run like a perilous thing to say about a player that you're gonna take number two overall in fantasy football that being said lest we forget. Fourteen regular season games Todd Gurley had eleven weeks in which he finished as a top ten running back in scoring that was more than any other player this season. He scored thirty rushing touchdowns over the past two years by far the best in the NFL. A couple of weeks have perhaps given me a tiny bit of pause over Todd Gurley. But I think that one thing that turned is important to remember is the Rams this off-season have so many big money decisions. They're going to have to make whether it's extending a guy like Marcus Peters, potentially Jared Goff, paying offense of vitamin Roger or maybe for kids. I think that the Rams are not going to make adding another running back a major priority for them this seed, and so as much as C J Anderson has proven that this offense of line is really good. I still think it's going to be clearly girly going into the year as not just a part of the running. Game. But the running game. It's a matter of fact, the focal point of the offense again interesting. Yeah. That is it is a January twenty third. They're going to the Super Bowl is interesting to talk about and think about girly just given a specially that NFC championship game where while that was that was a rough one for him. What do you think about that? Evan who do you take it number three? And and what would you have been thinking at number two? Well, speaking of which you know, I think it's a very interesting topic to discuss. And if you were to be a prisoner of the moment, you could go crazy on this and drop him Straub Todd Gurley like out of your first round. I mean, there's there are enough. Good players that if you wanted to be like extremely risk averse, you could just dump tiger early. But I I agree with keeping him inside the top five, and I think he got benched last week. Honestly, I mean the the week before he was super super explosive. I you know, I thought that the reason that he shared time with C J Anderson was because what the what Sean McVeigh told the announcers which was that. It was a stamina issue. I mean, I believe that. And last week he made critical errors in the early part of the game. And they just went with the hotter hint. And I mean, that's the equivalent of getting benched. I'm sure that he's probably not, you know, right at one hundred percent, but in the divisional round next ten stats clocked him at the fast like having the most explosive game that he had all season so on it's it's a difficult situation to analyze. But he was not on the injury report. And I think he got benched against the saints. But at number three, I'm gonna go with Ezekiel Elliott. I think that he is a real high floor pick. You know, he's far past his kind of early career. I think he's become more of like a team leader. And he's usage in the passing game. Especially after the Cowboys by week was critical to make him less game script dependent and just to give him a bigger upside week to week we're doing this at for for half p PR. So it's not full PBR. We're still getting points for receptions, and he showed us in the second half of the season that he was a really good receiver. That was a little bit of a question. Mark about him. Early in his career. But it was it was really born out of the fact that the Cowboys coaching staff had not prioritized getting him the ball in the passing game. But they absolutely did down the stretch. No running back had more targets catches receptions except for Christian McCaffrey in the second half of the season. And. Does should absolutely carry over into two thousand nineteen. So I got a big poor. They're sort of I have a big bore this as of right now. I mentioned before I made my girlie pick Zeke. I didn't. There's a compelling case for Zeke is number one. Overall to was interesting about the cause he's got thirteen rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons. The does everything. Well, and I. That'd be just mentioned with girly the reservation about whether they were to lean more on a separate running back. But is there any question? The Dow's is going to be totally and solely dedicated because they can the running game. Like it would be shocked. If Dallas prioritize adding any back of note. So I I guess I'll just keep it going then right to four by the way. And for me, the final member of the sort of quote, unquote, big four and imagine if you could in one pick have like Jarvis Landry and Adrian Peterson on your roster and just blend them together. Because that's kind of what Christian McCaffrey was as one player this past year. I mean, the stat line just as a receiver. Because he's been yard and six touchdowns, which maybe I'm underselling Jarvis Landry yards per catch too much and harkening back to his Miami days where he was like eight or nine yards up. But then you throw in eleven hundred rushing yards on five yards of Kerry from CMC this past year, and it was maybe one of the more quietly dominant fantasy seasons we've seen in quite some time. There seems to be the most buzzed about curtailing. Christian McCaffrey is workload enough, but anybody who watched any panther's game this here new, especially as cams shoulder started to regress, and he was clearly heard that there was one thing that works for Carolina, and that was fine. Twenty two and space and maybe things change in a little bit as sung wide receivers better. But I still think the Christian McCaffrey like I think eighty five catches is the floor for him on a yearly basis now going forward, and we know the ceiling is north of one hundred so McKay. Avary is about as good of a bet to lead all backs and catches and challenge for one hundred and thirty targets in the season. Alright Evan I guess before you make your pick it number five. I'm curious. Do you agree with field about sort of the the big four? Yeah. But I think there might be a big five. I think there might be a big five, and I'm ready for who the fifth is in your opinion than Evan. Yeah. Alvin kamara. Yeah. Because Mark Ingram is a free agent. Every single member of this elite saints off -fensive line is under contract for two thousand nineteen Ryan ramczyk max under Larry warford. Toronto Armstead Andrews Pete. Drew brees. I think that his deep ball has shown some signs of decline. Especially late in the season. This year attempted only nine passes of twenty plus yards. I'm sorry a thirty plus sharks nine nine passes of thirty plus yards all year in two thousand seventeen you tempted twenty three passes of thirty plus yards. I think that a lot of that had to do with the absence of Ted Ginn. And the way that the the saints offense just. You know, it was like a juggernaut for the first half of the season. And then it was not a juggernaut like from that from that from thanksgiving onward. Drew brees. I think he had four touchdown game on thanksgiving. The falcons the next week. They played the Cowboys and from there. They're all kind of never found the same footing that it had early in the year. Those are the concerns I think the the state of the offense. Do we see them rebound to their prolific levels in two thousand nineteen. That's a question, Mark. But working Graham is a free agent Alvin Kamara was you know, the difference making running back in the first month of the season. Until Mark Ingram came back and things just weren't the same thereafter, alva- Camaro definitely sprinkled in some very big games. But if we can get out and chimera near fulltime feature back, then I think that he belongs in the top five. We've never seen to to belong in that elite tear. We have not seen him go a full season in that role. But the upside is immense. If you know if he gets opportunity any capitalizes, and so that's why he would be my number five overall pick hard to argue that one and big about that month that you just referenced in the four games. Mark Ingram was suspended to begin the year album chimera had forty seven targets now including twenty in a game. That's not a misbehave twenty targets in a game. That's insane. Two games of one hundred plus receiving yards. He was clearly the best player on a Saint offense. That features a. A perennial all pro and Mike Thomas presumptive MVP up and drew Brees. He was amazing that first month of the season. I have might might sort of working theory is that Mark Ingram stays in New Orleans that might be, but but that being said chimeras my next man up here hard to go wrong. The only thing I keep saying I keep using the term like prisoner at the moment is like there are some times as Evan reference. How the offense sputtered down the stretch like sometimes the saints. It felt like over thought things a little bit. And I know everybody's going to point to taste them hills usage, which I am in some ways referencing. There are times where I just wish they were a tad more committed to Kamera, but when you're choosing between the fourth and fifth best player and fantasy. We're really just nitpicking here. So I certainly would have no argument taking chimera even a slot or to hire. And I think that the next player that comes to mind for me who's kind of. Can make a pretty compelling case to be in the same tier as Melvin Gordon who was a rockstar for the chargers for yet. Another season the third straight year that he has been a massive part of their offense after a touchdown less season as a rookie kind of amazing to think just how good he's been in that time after such an uninspiring rookie year and microfracture knee surgery and some concerns about bus status after really sixteen games, you know, part of the passing game again this year with fifty catches efficient as a pastor as receiver. I should say and in Los Angeles like what we've seen is. Although they've had other quality running backs. Justin Jackson played well and fill in duties Austin cler was a big part of the passing game. They go back to the well with Melvin Gordon frequently and Evan was referencing the cohesive offensive lines in New Orleans now they have got all five of their guys back next year on paper. It seems like the chargers are poised to return the Saint at least four of the same five offense lineman as well. Philip rivers continues to be one of the more enjoyable quarterbacks and productive quarterbacks to watch. So I gotta think that things look largely the same for the chargers going into next year. And when I kind of I wouldn't say it's the end of tier here. But I do think that Gordon probably there might be some conversation about wide receiver from here on out is the next pick up based off where we're at this point of the off season. And you know, it's interesting. You're right about Gordon. The one point I can add Evan before you make the seventh pick is talking with the saints coaches a couple of times on the field this year. I was there when they got marking him back, and they were so happy to have marking or back. So I I would lean towards field in that. I think they probably try to bring Ingram back because they were talking about it. It made them feel a lot better about using chimera when Ingram was back because they went in the first four games thinking. Okay. We don't want to overuse Kamera, and then you get into the game and you're trying to win. And the next thing they know they're giving them all of these touches. So I think they are aware of Camaro over usage, and they know how devastating it would be for them. If he got hurt. So it was like a Asya of relief when they finally got to the point where Ingram was. Back, and they could they had another guy that they could feed and not not take the chance of overusing chimeras. I thought that was just interesting talking to some of those guys before the games. What are you got to number seven? Evan. Yeah. You know, Ross don't be taken field side over mine on. Yeah. So it starts to get a little difficult here. I think you definitely start to look at some wide receivers I'm gonna stick with running back here. And this is a really difficult decision. Because it's between two. Guys who will one guy who replaced the other guy? And I think man. Yeah. I'm going to go with James Connor right here. A number seven overall. He was a top five fantasy running back until he got banged up late in the season that will be kind of the lingering question. Mark about him going into two thousand nineteen Kenny hold up for a full year. But. The Steelers offensive line. I think they're going to bring about at least three of their their their five starting ofensive lineman of the left guard. Ramon foster is a free agent. He's thirty three still playing at a high level. But not, you know, not necessarily a guy. That's a lock to return. And then at right tackle, Marcus Gilbert. They're coming to get me here. They're coming back in like the pick. Marcus gilbert. And I think I'm not sure he got he got injured. So I'm not sure if he's going to be back. But I think they'll definitely have back alley away. David decastro in more keys pouncey. So and I think that's a really solid foundation. I think Ben showed that he I mean this Ben has played really really well over the last couple of seasons. He always has these these hiccups, you know, like the Jaguars game where you almost single-handedly loses the game. Of course, he brings them back in the end, you know, and the team went through a lot of turmoil. And I don't know it sounds like they are that they've kind of decided they've circle the wagons. And they decided that Antonio Brown is their problem. I think that they you know, they they have James Washington who is going to get a much longer. Look this year in juju Smith destroy. I think he's ready ready to be a number one receiver. I think that they're going to continue to feel an explosive offense. And what they've shown us over the years is that the the steel that they are committed to using a running back in every down role. Whether it be, you know, d- Angela Williams, whether it be live yon bell. Whether it be James Connor or even Jalen Samuels when he got his shot late in the season they used him heavily. So I think that that's one one thing that you can Bank on just their commitment to using James Connor as a true every down feature back. Like it. All right field. Eight. At eight and James Connor was on my list. Well, I've so far we're we're seven for seven players that make our list here. But as we entered, and I know that this is about twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty eighteen but as we entered week seventeen of the twenty eighteen regular season there were just to players at scored at least fifteen points in every game up to that point of the season. And one of them was a quarterback can Patrick Mahomes. Who was unbelievable? The other one was devante, Adam. So of course makes missed week seventeen because of an injury. But he was a knee injury. They cost them that finale against the lions where the backers just basically flat lines not to show up, but Davante Adams was an absolute rock for the Green Bay Packers. This year we've seen Davante Adams B A star with Aaron Rodgers young Adams career we've seen it in a later stage of devante Adams career and he survived. Brett hundley. A year ago? No, real bad that offense was and how Randall Cobb Jordy Nelson fell off face of the earth for those long stretch which Aaron Rodgers was out. I mean that was the Packers went from one of the more enjoyable offenses to watch at high octane to like a difficult tough grinded out watch. When Brett Hundley was under center. That's part of the reason why he was traded this past off season. And Davante Adams still was an absolute star with him under center is the only player in the NFL that has at least ten receiving touchdowns in each of the past three seasons. As a matter of fact, he was the only guy to do it in both twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen any yet added another double digit touchdown season this year, I've got confidence. And this is like I feel like it sounds silly to even have to justify this. But because the tenor of the Packers season was so negative this past year. I've got implicit confidence in Aaron Rodgers. And the Packers getting back on track in a major way next year. And I'm all in on. Devante adams. I like it. All right. So then what are you got at nine Evan? Yeah. That's interesting because we're taking Davante Adams as the wide receiver one overall. Now, in know, it's crazy to think how far he is come over the past couple years, but but he's gotten there. And he's I mean you talk about trust factor between a quarterback in wide receiver. You know, there's Iran in devante Adams's immense. So I I like it. I think it's bold. I think it it's not it's something that not not a lot of people would would think immediately. Oh Davante Adams as the wide receiver. One. Overall. A lot of people would think about Andre Hopkins may be Julio Jones may be Michael Thomas is Antonio Brown. Now out of that discussion. You know, I'm gonna go back to the running back position here at number nine, and I'm gonna go with Levy on bell. Yeah. And I'm in I'm kind of hoping that he lands on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And he becomes Bruce Arians. David Johnson is new David Johnson. If he goes to like the jets. You know than I think that he's maybe more of a fringe first round pick in famously. But you know, I definitely want to see like I wanna see that this is kind of narrative stuff. But I I want to see videos of this dude like working out leading into free agency. Because the only pictures and videos that I've seen all like all last year were of him like at the club, you know, on on Instagram, and I would prefer to see him like, you know, working out and make sure that it's the his is his mind is right. Entering the season. You don't just see guys in the prime of their career sit out in entire season and pass up fifteen million dollars. You know, like, you do not see that happen. So I wanna see some positivity like just that he is committed to this football thing. Still, and I'm sure that we will because you know, that's going to be critical to is free agent market value as well. But I think if we could get him on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with all the firepower that they have ofensive -ly under the direction of Bruce Arians, man. I think that that he could bounce back, and and become, you know, a great player again and become a great fantasy player again, which he he's always been because of his receiving ability. And you know, he's he's going to be hard for him to play behind offense. Of lines that were as good as the one in. Pittsburgh was for him. You know, which which really, you know, the the company of his patients behind the line his running style. And that that offensive line gave him the ability to do that you eat. You know, he's not necessarily going to be able to run the ball like that behind other offense of lines that allow more penetration than the Steelers offensive line did. But I think that Bruce Arians one thing that he did that was so great. What David Johnson was he understood how valuable David Johnson was as a pass catcher in also got him running outside the tackles. And I think that that would really suit leave you on bell. Well, but again, it's gonna come down to his landing spot. God, phil. I I would add by the way if another team that I think makes sense, but it might reduce his value. We'd be the jets, right? Like just from the sense that they know they've got to spend this off season GM, Mike McKenna. I think is a wear the fact that although he was retained like he better start hitting on players right away. And they better make Sam darnold better in a hurry. I would feel better about on value though. If he went to Tampa, I'm with Evan. That's about as ideal of a scenario in terms of like plausible like realistic landing spots for lady on for twenty nine hundred and beyond. I like it. How about number ten? Yes. I'm gonna go back to the wide receiver well here deandre Hopkins who Evan just mentioned could very well. Be in the conversation in the number one wide receiver over all the guy played seventeen games this year. Obviously the one postseason game he had at least ten targets in twelve of those seventeen games and in the five games in which he had fewer than ten targets. He scored a total of five touchdowns. So he's still finds ways to make good every single week. He's a bad as consistent and steady of player as there is at the position quarterback play as not derail this production in the past talked about how devante Adam survived. Brent Hundley like de'andre Hopkins. It's like he's like hold my beer. Like look at all the players. I've survived with quarterback that have come through Houston. Whether it was Brandon Weeden Fillon or whether it was Tom savage to begin last season. It has always been that the under Hopkins has found a way to produce. I really do. Leave that I am still always hunting running backs. You know, it's much as I can or I almost always hunting running backs as much as I can early. But with lady on off the board a lot of the names finish off my top twelve tend to gravitate more towards the wide receiver position. And I think the Andre just offers the rare combination of wide receiver one upside, but also like the floor of one hundred catches twelve hundred yards and six or eight touchdowns two receivers in fields last two picks. Are you still staying with running back at eleven Evan? Or is there another position? No, I'm going. I'm going Michael Thomas going Michael Thomas here and number eleven and the saints just I they're not gonna pose a whole lot of target competition for them, you know, it's going to be Alvin Kamara and then a bunch of role players. I don't think that they're gonna go make a big wide receiver edition. During the offseason. So whereas, you know, I I'm like I'm weighing Julio Jones against against Michael Thomas. Julio Jones is gonna have to contend with you know, Muhammed snooze gonna come back. You know, Austin Hooper keeps getting better every year Calvin ridley's going to be better in his second season. And I think that that's going to damage Julio Jones consistency. Somewhat Julio Jones to me is a top to real life NFL receiver. But in fantasy I'd rather have Michael Thomas because he's competing with for targets, Ted gain and trae Kwan Smith and. Keith kirkwood. I mean, you know, they got nothing at tight end still. And I don't think we're going to see them go. Make a big splash. Go get a target hog at any of these other positions. So I think that the consistency is going to be superior for Michael Thomas, and he's a guy who continues to get better every year. I mean, his catch rate was just absurd in two thousand eighteen I love how they use him in the slot so much he has led the NFL in yards per route run in the slot in back to back years. And that's just an easy way for them to manufacturer him catches. So I'm going with Michael Thomas and number eleven. Like it. There's well. Mike Thomas, certainly in my like, my my last bubble of players to get into the back end of the top twelve. Julio listening to guys it's not hard to make a case for Julio as well. But Evan talked about the ways to split the difference as we get to this juncture of the back end of the route what round one when you're talking about. Awesome players at all have immense upside. So I feel like I started the wide receiver Ron, but I want to end with one running back and. I don't know if I have to talk myself into this one. But I understand why there might be some people that feel a little bit less confident in him. That's Joe mixing Joe mixing it's a little bit different than the guys that we've mentioned so far amongst running backs in the sense that his passing game value this past year was not nearly the same as someone like, obviously, Christian McCaffrey. But even the Alvin Kamara Zeke girly saquon, those guys even Melvin Gordon just forty three catches this year four Joe mixon. But I don't think that's a lack of ability. I think some of it is the offense that he was playing in this past year. And I don't know that we have a precise field for what as Zack Taylor offense is going to look like we hope obviously that it has some of the principles that we see what the Rams right now and they're cocaine and Todd Gurley is or at least for up until the past week was a huge part of that offense missions a really talented player. The offensive line has not been great for either of his two NFL seasons. But I think there's enough growth. There for Joe mixing and the passing game involvement could pick up to the point that we could see a player the challenges to be top five running back next season. I- Cincinnati feels like one of the teams in the NFL right now that. They're not like the direction is like, I don't think the trajectory is sky high. I don't think that they're going to compete for the number one overall pick and twenty twenty either they're sort of stuck in the middle team. But I think that Joe mixon has a chance to emerge as their best player on offense next season, even factoring in the AJ grain should be back and fully healthy. Right. And was that Taylor coming in? You know, maybe he makes maybe he makes Joe mixing his Todd Gurley was. Yep. Yep. Which could certainly be the case that was awesome. That was really an interesting exercise, man. I wasn't even thinking lady on Bill just because the uncertainty and then the chimera as a top five. Devante atoms is the number one receiver really really an interesting exercise field before we let you go. Where are the other places that people can catch you? I know you're everywhere.

10/14: Injury Updates and Struggling Offenses (Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS sports got email us at fantasy football cbs I dot com take time to dominate your Fantasy League company that Cheney you're not a big deal with the by sorry I said ankle it's a quad for Connor's well the giants get along week they had the Thursday night game and they will play offense and the struggling a little bit chiefs offense welcome to the fantasy football today road tour presented by little CAESARS pizza for dinner tonight how about ordering your favorite doc I hope you're doing well how are you today I'm doing well yourself doing pretty well I got some big fantasy match that will be decided tonight and then I'll have a better answer to that that with the Mario Cooper right now well that's that's one where still trying to figure it out but I don't see the Thigh Bruise unless he question but thanks so much for coming let's get right to it with Amari cooper who left with a thigh bruise and get the eagles and a very big game this week what are we looking aim it's sore but I don't see this being long term I think it's a thigh contusion bruise it'll get treated it'll get well before the steelers played game I didn't see it hit which actually tends to make me think it might linger where it may cost him next week okay so the online from little caesars and using pizza portal pickup it's the latest greatest and hottest way to pick up a pizza without even going to the register all right as always on Monday we are joined by Dr David You can follow him on twitter at pro football dock and go to his website pro football doc dot com I know a lot of people were injured out there but the news is he has a buy in two weeks so hopefully he could be back in three weeks at the giants. If we don't get Amari Cooper this week against the eagles now James Connor the Arizona cardinals this week Saquon Barkley and Evan Ingram seems like they have a chance to play sterling shepherd the concussion seems less likely that's what the with an ankle injury Dr Chow and actually didn't notice this one when it happened because I also was using game pass and I was watching it on on condense mode which is amazing for those of you who don't did maybe but I think the injury that he has today at least by video is related to what he had coming into the he had the preseason you know you always talk about compensation and things like that I don't see it as being directly related could there be some way where it's indirectly relate over Thi- or quad strain and if you look back at T. Y. Hilton after he took himself out of a game a few weeks ago the end of missing the next week I am but he doesn't make any effort to really jump up push off his right leg to get pie 'cause I don't think he could and then he was out of the game I think this is more of an aggravation of he does make the catch on the second offensive play he gets hit as he goes out of bounds but it didn't look like a contusion he was a little slow getting up on the very next play sports are indicating right now what kind of forecast would you give for these very important giants players will very difficult to tell on concussions but sterling shepard came into the game with the news coming into the game was reported as a quad strain of some sort he only played three place that I could see on game pass and I looked at it in third quarter on a short pass play and run a dump off past hit pretty good on his right quad he truly has a quad confusion he did not return to the the second one in five weeks apart so the doctors are going to be cautious of course the giants did activate a wide receiver but the giants should get a lot healthier injury high ankle sprain this Sunday marks week for as long as he has no setbacks and practice as long as the giants feel there's no significant injury I mean there they were missing their top two runners and top to pass catchers against the Patriots on Thursday with Sterling Shepard Down Evan Ingram down saquon Barkley Down Wayne Goldman Down Wayne governments getting clear from the concussion protocol surly shepherd may be may not be hard l. yet saquon Barkley I think is finally likely to play the two week mark three week mark those weren't likely time for him to play from the get-go it was a four to six weeks I have that please get game pass on NFL dot com and yeah he's got a by coming up but what did you see what James Connor James Very early on in my cooper playing in this big eagles matchup at this point in time and barring any new information do you think it could be related to the foot injury pretty excited about him playing against the Patriots and you're like I don't think so so you've been given us some great information we appreciate that now we've got an Achilles injury it's still early but that would be big big change from the previous king and as I recall a week ago on the show you talked about Barclay and I think in Wisconsin I think there's a reasonable chance we'll see saquon Barkley out there and Evan Ingram I think is on a path to potentially play to right now we'll we'll see Thursday game against Kansas City and I guess the reports have been fairly optimistic on Emmanuel Sanders do you think he'll play on Thursday will report certainly been optimistic like not only will Emmanuel Sanders okay it's looking like tie we kill obviously we'll even have more reps and we'll disley and we'll talk about that but first I wanna ask you about a guy who has recovered from an Achilles injury but now he's dealing with a knee injury and that's Emmanuel Sanders and he gets a quick turnaround Michael Moore off a video in the video where his last play the game didn't see a whole lot he sort of turns back for a pass that's a little bit behind him didn't see a whole lot so that meshes well with the earlier reports that he should be okay and let's hope that he is in you know heck for that Thursday game it's looking like continue to play his first game back with pretty good and of course Sammy Watkins with his hamstring I think is position to play for Thursday as well so warhols but I did want to talk to you about will disley who has the Achilles injuries having such a great season for the seahawks what did you see with d'isly well you know do we get all three of those wide receivers going yeah it definitely would and will and I are sure are going to debate the chiefs offense going forward and actually I'll ask about how healthy do you think Patrick Mahomes is right now depends on how you want a great the scale but he's nowhere ended and now this is an Achilles tendon leave now has been confirmed and that's what it looked like he just changes directions what we call eccentric load and ops unfortunately non-contact injury it's a tough injury to return from now he did it very well but the color attended which some would say is even ah through the pro football dot com site that's we put up he said you know our fear is that he tore his left Achilles the he ended last season with the right the television now reactivated again he's nowhere near one hundred percent but you know he's nowhere near missing time either because he's such an exceptional talent as long as he doesn't have an offense order to come back from them then the Achilles so I think he can do it again but it's just unfortunate two years in a row with with the major tendon tears surgery one hundred percent you know in the NFL we often say eighty five percents good week and Patrick Mahomes if I asked to put a number on it based on what he looks like an ankle Ashley better each week but the worry always is reactivation and that's one of the worries you know saquon Barkley is going to have as he comes back from his ankle sprain and you know alignment stepping on his ankle as was the case in week five is it something that will continue to get better yeah it's something that's GonNa continue to get for this year instead of being at home on my couch with tits I'm actually in a war room and there's a about six or seven people in four different big screens and eight different monitors really you could teleport me back to Sunday morning in Las Vegas and I'm not sure I'll make money betting on the Games because you know I'm looking at all the oh I don't know he's probably seventy five eighty percent but seventy five or eighty percent of Patrick mahomes probably a hundred percent of a lot of other people When I saw the game on Sunday the left side of the offense lying that she still a little bit better than the previous week with the left guard down and obviously Eric Fisher the starting left tackle still look he heard it week one and we talked about it right on the show there was a high ankle week one and and he's limping pretty good missing time played reasonably well the next few weeks David Chow joining us here and you can follow him at pro football doc on twitter I just wanted to know before we let you go what's this Sunday like on twitter for you are you every teams fan as all the time I'm chasing the different injuries and different things so we're Baker Mayfield gets hurt you know that's ten fifteen minutes looking Baker Mayfield and not looking at anything related so I have a lot more help to try and screen things but it's still very hectic I made a joke earlier on a different show that litter that that dealt more with gambling I said look to the TV or the scores or anything else so I get a general sense of the Games but sometimes it's it's harder but that's what gives me the the clean sense of where the injuries mission Dr Chow thanks again for coming on thank you all right we'll and Chris right now all right everybody I'm sure in the fantasy world for you it's become very clear now and everyone knows that the eagles defensive backfield or secondary especially their corners are a little bit hampered right now about the bigger concern for the chiefs proud probably their hold on the defensive line is the Houston did okay on the ground against those guys we're at because that's kind of what my focus is as I look at it and that sort of the job in terms of providing the injury index some the analysis and it's not just looking at the baker every teams fan base asking you questions by going to be all right is this hectic career it can get hectic and that's the new nobody loves New York City the Guy has been living there for five days Chris Towers is all the show today? Welcome Chris how're you doing you make it there throughout this whole season but by studying and looking at it we kind of knew that from week one based on injuries not the quality of their scheme of their players but just based on injuries we knew let's so it's nice to be settled in. Did you drive the hallway from Florida to New York Yeah Yeah we've got thank you just looking at the the right tackle and left tackles the guards and the D. Lineman because you know these cluster injuries make a make a big big difference yeah how's it going man welcome welcome to the Monday show how are you it's great I'm sorry I had to miss last week I was driving in a minivan with two extremely angry all of our stuff is somewhere in storage unit somewhere in south Florida that will get here at some point I was given an estimate of to to fourteen days I'm glad that they were going to be hampered and they have been most of the season well well that's why everybody needs to follow him on twitter and go to pro football doc dot com and get all that great we're GONNA get Chris hooked up with the wonderful podcast studio but also you've heard will everybody gets intro music today will you strike me as the category I'm making it here which from what I've heard from the transit of property means I connected days I've heard that too I agree it is it is a great place how you okay Chris just moved he's very happy to be your New Yorkers already going to a million concerts and for you we will go for thirty minutes talking about country versus real country versus pop crap country like Garth Brooks Okay so you're right I don't want that so we'll I need a big game from Aaron Jones tonight because I don't want to lose to will in two leagues I think it's pretty amazing that the League in which I traded to will will fuller and saquon Barkley for Steve from the slight lag your video that every CBS office has terrible Wi fi companies are actually getting beginning next week massive step back and they no longer can run the ball the way they want to which set up all the things they like to do off of play action flooding guys across in times all right so you tell me there's a chance we have the apple podcasts mailbag please leave us a nice review in a question on apple podcasts will read your questions the Wednesday and Saturday shows and I'll let you know about our facebook winner in just a bit and the new contest for this week I got five big questions though I told the people on twitter I let you rams offense will how concerned are you about the rams offense on a scale of ten I would say Fourteen or eleven what a game against the forty niners showcase that this division is is changing before our very eyes San Francisco might have the best offensive line football they devastated the rams I mean it was in the are they would stick this song karaoke at a crowded bar on a Friday night what do you think I look I I listened to a lot of garth brooks growing up so yes I do it mix it in Stefan digs we actually play each other this week and he still kicking the crap out of me even though he started fuller and I started digs but that's jared Goff for you All choose the questions I lied only leading choose three of them because I had to choose this first one it's maybe the biggest topic right now one of the biggest in football how concerned are we the rams fence two straight years as a top two scoring team they are ninth right now coming off a seven point game against San Francisco and it just doesn't look like the throw I I think they're trying to overcompensate by playing a lot of these tight ends no one is comfortable right now and look that game there's some good news and bad news here the good the bad news is that making a few more mistakes than you typically expect I would guess the fact that they've been more efficient overall on it's just a few mistakes means that there is some room the field I think they're trying to overcompensate with those issues on the offensive line as well as teams walking six men of the box and forcing them to the the twelfth because they like to run twelve personnel so we'll say twelve out of ten for the rams the biggest problem is that they're offensive line has taken a massive in a modern NFL game the should never be over they didn't have a prayer of coming back they couldn't move the ball at all they had multiple drives with negative net yards victor we say that canal you don't have to just say bottoms atom aching it deserves the ache it was an a kicking it kicked the crap out of them they I mean it was it was it was twenty two seven in the third quarter early the fourth quarter and when you're down thirteen points in worse yeah and we'll mention the offensive line I'll just quote from the athletic the rams inability to develop cohesion and success along the offensive line is the with no play action so overall still been relatively efficient and certainly more efficient with the play action it just seems to be you know maybe jared breakdown quickly in part because gough doesn't have great ability to extend plays with his feet Russell Wilson he is not and perhaps that's just sort of giving us a glimpse we really need to be looking at in future years with quarterbacks the ones who are mobile you know they struggle not all of them I mean there's Brady and there's breeze and whatnot arrives with a clean pocket advanced statistics show this give golf some space and a couple extra seconds and pair that with McVeigh's play calling and he will find someone open pressure him and things he's got a southern he's got a country to have okay well it's the first one is an insult to call you know what you don't want to get into a discussion of country music with me and Chris dowers is when poorly as must start guys must like is really want on your team what do you think I think so because I the two years worth of calls though so they have a little bit of get right going to the by at which point maybe people can try to sell high on them and just pretend that was just a forty niners thing yeah here's one thing that I will point out they are track record makes me believe that they will turn it around and be better the fact that like brandin cooks especially has been so mediocre when their ninth and scoring is really third quarter they had three drives every one of them went negative yards they can't establish any sort of running game and yeah I'm very concerned the good news is they get the Falcons in the Bingo rest of season terms of a trade value standpoint you still view cooks cuff and Woods Cup store top-five wide receiver by the way as for them to turn it around but it's also clear that things aren't working nearly as well you know last season they were at ten yards per attempt with plaques and so they're still been significantly it's three interceptions but I will if you're looking for some positive he's he's averaging eight point five yards per attempt on those plaques and passes compared to six point five and they're passer rating jer passer rating on play action passes this year is seventy one point one which is really bad he has zero touchdown of wine is going to impact on offense in this case it seems to be pretty significant so let me finish with this cooks cottonwoods you know Chris how're you going to approach them the reason for their offensive progression and arguably the biggest reason for their three and three start they know what the and then continued they know what they have in golf a smart accurate quarterback who can make any throw but also starting every single week I don't know I do like that they've been giving brandin cooks and Robert Woods more opportunities to make plays in the running game they're trying to get went on after After our show on Sunday night arson questions upcoming but I want to congratulate Matthew Altman we asked in our facebook more swag given away every week today's this week's contest best draft day decision that you made this year best draft decision join the fantasy football today facebook group the ball in their hands they think they both had two carries yesterday Robert Wood scored that touchdown so that's a good sign that there are at least making an effort to make sure that they get the ball to their playmakers but else guys are the are you with the best quarterbacks of their generation basically but it helps helps be able to move a little bit and it's also sometimes hard to know how much a bad it's it's real concern for brandin cooks specially all right our second question we have a lot of questions about the chargers that game turning because there's that much room for them to get better like we're talking about them like they've been a bottom ten offense he said their ninth and scoring what does it look like first fantasy championship even named my son Calvin that's dedication I liked that so congratulations matthew one yourself a t shirt and he's in the play action less often than they did last season they were second in the NFL in percentage of play passing plays that were play action this year the twelfth down to twenty seven percent is there is a potential for a bathroom in the pants situation because of how the chargers have looked the last two weeks in the US that they've had for all snacker I knew he had a ton of catches last week but it's very obvious that when Melvin Gordon came back they decided to force feed him as much as humanly possible and as so who's your favorite fantasy player of all time a lot of people gave some great answers about random guys that won them a week when the championship like Kyle Orton when their fifth in scoring is that really enough to get brandin cooks to who only has six targets over his last two games I should point out right is that enough to make him someone that you're you said you said it's not going well and I'm telling you that it's you have no one left to play and I'm winning one so if luggage routing scheduling fumbles fourteen instead but matthew all men took it to another level Calvin Johnson he says no question justice stone weekend and week out battling injuries and bad quarterbacks one yikes opposite of what you would expect from those two I was very concerned about Austin actor what because he had fifteen catches in week five they are not going to be very good on offense until they fix that here's a here's a real concerning stat for US necker he only ran twenty routes yesterday Melvin Gordon Ran Twenty seven result I think the offense is out of whack I think they've gotten away from what they were great at the first four weeks which is utilizing Austin cler in the passing game in the running game will you can answer wills question well I think it would probably buy because right now also owner is and I don't particularly like passing passing Ke- pass catching running backs part of me I didn't draft any to Rico and I did draft James got it is Monday October fourteenth mcclatchy up on the latest injury news and a little bit we'll talk about five of the big story lines around the national football league including struggling rams unfortunately the correct answer billick but whatever everybody's got their own I was going to give it to the guy who said Victor Cruz ninety nine yard touchdown against the jets oh good seasons and then you see like a fifteen performance immunes nothing it means nothing going forward because James White himself had fifteen catches against the chargers in the wild card remember that year where they went nuts at the end of the season for the titans and everybody their fantasy championship he won a big high stakes league hate for him to visit his friend which is where he met her they WanNa get Melvin Gordon these carries so I think I would buy if you could get him very cheap but I'm obviously concerned as well about the chargers their offensive line has also gone to crap and the happy gyp but I felt like that was two two giants actually heard Greg Rosenthal say that when Billy Volokh did with the was the drew Bennett and it is that the wild card round yeah no whatever was the first round of the playoffs James James and then and then he had like four in the next two games because I thought he was falling to a really good range and he's been solid he's been about eleven to fourteen fantasy points in pr every week but these guys have trouble replicating in that week is that we over beach one twenty five to ninety eight I got NBS going tonight But Yeah I mean you have to Brag I just said you would whoa see that would've wanted t shirt that was good all right this is one is from will now we'll Brinson awesome Ecuador buy sell or hold awesome Heckler I think it's questionable what value is right now because coming off the dud so I guess the better question is like where where do you rank him recipes in which rather have not a reliable thing. Melvin Gordon's GonNa get almost all of the rushing touchdowns I think he is they're running back and I just I'm not necessarily buying favorite pizza and whatever pizza you order it'll have crazy crazy amounts of toppings it's fun give it a try but it's only available at little caesars Pizza Pizza we're gonNA stick with the chargers here Texas bruins sixty seven asks does the return of Hunter Henry Hurt Keenan Allen rest of season and I will just say real quick they were I think it helps him teams are not gonna be able to double you're not really just stick double coverage on Keenan Allen isolate him and not worry about anybody even that rich rebar who joined our show a couple of weeks Lord Reeves he tweeted something out about just how rare it is for a like you have to catch passes to be elite running back but just catching passes isn't enough I think that kind of the way it works out well the reality is that both healthy in two thousand seventeen and Keenan Allen had hundred two catches fourteen hundred yards and six touchdowns but what do you think does the return of Hunter Henry Hurt Keenan Allen recipes absolutely panicking how good you think oh be I think I think regret sorry twenty twenty five range NPR yeah which is sort of damning with faint praise because there's only like sixteen good fantasy running backs and so the twenty to twenty five range is kind of made up of twelve or thirteen different middle what outstanding game from him but most of that production came in like full-blown garbage time I mean it was absolute just the steelers sitting back awards James White it is I think he's one exception and a big part of that is because you'll see a lot with patriots like we think about Patriots Patriots running aiming with say is right if that makes any sense I think just to piggyback on what you're saying like game scripts and troubling that Melvin Gordon Ramos they were down fourteen and nothing anything your pass catching running back and not a guy who carries is that you're dependent on game script you patriots are not GonNa Feed James White if they're bludgeoning the dolphins in week four what you're missing out on Pizza Puerto Pick up what is beat supporter pickup. It's like getting a pizza right out of the oven yourself you walk in you answer a code on the portal a door opens and you're off with your there's GonNa be a guy like Sony Michelle who's going to get all these red zone carries you're GONNA get all these touchdowns and really there's only one season where that's been true and a big part of that is because when that offense is moving else left on the chargers because Mike Williams just constantly coming in and out with an injury Ecuador is clearly being you know all the back burner Gordon and I think Hunter Henry opens things up in the because it feels false to me what that the pass catching reputation let me it feels more likely that a pass catching back will replicate success now straight up an actually it's it's been the last three games have been terrible for him what what do you think Keenan Allen Hunter Henry and I also WanNa throw in that Melvin Gordon coming back is a big deal because from thirty percent to ten percent he's not being targeted deep he's not making plays with the ball in his hands average yards after catch is three point nine in the first three games opportunities for matchups to take advantage of and that hasn't been the case yet so it's not something that I can necessarily pinpoint right now except to say that it's Keenan down to two point one over the last three it's just kind of He's not playing as well and Philip rivers during the ball to him as much and I'm not sure what the reason for Alvin Gordon I believe led the team in red zone targets last year so I I think the addition of Harry might not be so bad for Keenan Allen but just the addition of him necessarily hurts Keenan Allen you can still easily finish as a top five wide receiver But you know I mean he he was not going to be the he's not going to have from the slot weeks one through three fifty seven point four percent weeks four through six but his target rate when coming out of the slot in those last two games has shrunk in James Whites in and they get into the red zone they'll just go hurry up inside of the ten and that gives James Roy had five rushing touchdowns last year that was also part of why answered you could see Alan he's really good he's going to be a top twelve receiver moving forward because that's what history has said right yeah it's three games sample size the first three games of the season Keenan Allen Melvin Gordon I do start to wonder what those targets are going to look like and and what what do you think in Chris we'll end Mike Williams missed some time it's true during those first three games when you look at like it's hard for running backs who catch a lot of passes to replicate their production well look at Jordan Howard who had this massive blow up week five thirty five targets on the season there he was due to come back to Earth a little bit yeah Chris I three games for Keenan Allen he was the number one receiver I believe in fantasy it does not have anything to do with pass attempts spillovers actually throwing the ball probably a little bit more in the last three games he did in the first three games I I would back leading the chargers moved the ball down the field and he picked it up I mean look I I get the huge game and I'm pump Gorman I want I drafted Hunter Henry a lot and I'm excited that he's back and he's playing well but I don't think it's hard to pinpoint exactly what's gone wrong with you look he's played a lot more from the slot over the last three games he was forty seven point six percents probably going to be a little bit more methodical in his production than he was the first three weeks can you wish that that Second Kansas City game was was all right so let me just wrap it up with you know who are we valuing him similarly to wait where do you think of him as a running back at this point what range Allan Allan Allan Allan he now Godwin Yeah okay moving on we got three more questions to get to here first question though have you ordered a pizza online from little caesars yet well running back that relies on Pascha on catching passes to be a top twenty four wide receiver running back two years in a row or it's they say to Adam that when you know like we got to adjust our expectations as we move along into the season and and realize what defenses are good and what defenses are bad and then look at game script right or that is is it defenses have have started to shift their attention more to him while if that was the case the fact that he's playing out of the slot more you would think that would give him more free releases and more Bill Minnesota in weeks thirteen fourteen fifteen okay so just sorta biographer hunter Henry helping him is like sure you can't put you can't stack too much on him against they love him in the passing game he leads all running backs and air yards actually this season they've been using him downfield a ton he's making big plays seemingly every weekend eighty six yards on three swapped with one of those bears or vikings in week fifteen that you'd feel a lot better about the upcoming yeah he does have some tough matches at Tennessee at Chicago Green Bay attacl and Kansas City that's not that's a decent stretch green bay at Oakland Kansas City at the jury's out on Green Bay but they do have good corners then a by then at Denver at Jackson Godwin Allen Look at us at schedule I think I'd take Godwin let's check the chargers all right next next question you point three two point eight four point one six point five one point seven and two point oh so that's four out of six games at two point eight yards per carrier worse and it's a really good defense at no one is talking about it they had been they'd be competing in this in this division in civil when you look at Keenan Allen moving forward Tennessee Chicago he's good defenses like he's not going to get Xavier roads and a safety over tall all right guy so let me give you some names real quick and me one word answers Keenan Allen rest of season or Mike Evans season-low and snap percentage this season Jordan Howard also not surprisingly then played his highest and part of that was Darren sproles and Corey commander both out and so it gets a dolphins it shouldn't be surprising Keenan Allen didn't have a huge game I mean they I know they close at half time but once that game is out of hand he you know he wasn't it has I'm not sure when they're going to be back but there's not really any sign that they want miles sanders to be an early down option for from bottom bang boom boom his miles sanders back on the map after Jordan Howard's disappointing performance weird timing for this question Mile Sanders played passing a reset of receiving touchdown and a forty five yard reception like that's going to be fairly unlikely to be replicable on a week to week basis our concerto there's a pretty good cornerback so once I was out of hand he wasn't going to get the ball Denver Rick Chris Harris is outstanding in Pittsburgh I think has been they don't they don't trust him to be the feature back on them right now not only that like here's here's smile sanders yards per carry six games granted not a lot of carriers and some of them but uh not much we don't really like Jordan Howard that much I assume so who would you rather have from an analytical perspective is what Adam said assists as it turns it being like a a deep threat out of the Backfield is he's actually pretty good in pass protection so I don't think he's GonNa lose a ton of these opportunities in the passing game but you have three carries for six yards also comes on the heels of of Doug Peterson saying we want to get Jordan Howard you know more feature work and it did happen I guess I'd say catches yesterday he was awesome but they seem to want Jordan Howard in the running game and there's not signs that that's changing yet I mean he had a thirty two yard talk to you again yes okay you think on last week's Monday show express them genuine concern about the chiefs offense listener contests but you can always join I didn't do so bad hundred and sixty I have five ninety five almost cash I'm gonNA give it to myself I'm GONNA say three out of four why so so when I say I would buy him I don't mean that I think he's going to be good the rest of the year but I think you can get him for nothing right now like I think his earners ninety dollars deposit get five dollars site credit for four straight weeks go to fan will dot com slash F. F. T. or download the fan will APP and our final question today comes one had three hundred and fourteen yards and three touchdowns on forty two targets last three games is ninety nine yards no touchdowns seventeen targets and Listen you can join I need to join fan fan dot com slash F F T fan without com slash F F T and the League is five bucks per week and how do you get I'll go green bay would have been very concerned of course Denver again in week Thirteen Gel Ramsey doesn't look he's coming back they get Oakland twice I think there's a potential for bigger games but he's going to bed so when you say you have concerns about the chiefs offense is it that you think the third best offense in the NFL only like one point we'll brinson would you like to apologize for will for the chiefs thing was the question you know what I'm talking about Joe Head I don't think you're right about that combat offensive line into spots where they have to be perfect on their possessions or else they're going to win football games now look I know mahomes had a nice fantasy day yesterday because he had three touchdowns if you want to be optimistic about sanders there three and three they could probably use some more playmaking on offense and he is that kind of guy but I straight weeks now you go then you can just put it right into the fantasy football today listeners contest but fan does extremely fun I've been doing pretty well this year so I'm happy to help out if you care for my advice I think now's the time to be thinking that Jordan Howard was so bad his look as Minnesota's good Juanita Jordan Howard so bad they're giving it the job to sanders right we're timing one long one to tyreek hill was on a on a retiree hill makes makes place like tyreek Hill and that was my argument is like we were coming off this game where the chiefs had not back to like the preseason Patrick mahomes regression discussions is like when we were saying don't draft Patrick Mahomes in the first round that's not saying he stop anybody from running the ball down their throats maintaining the time of possession over the time of possession battle forcing Patrick Mahomes in that offense with a bad that question I'd say but always a good time to start playing on

Episode 19: Week 3 AFC Team-by-Team Recap

"I hello and welcome to episode so nineteen of the official established the run DOT COM podcast. My name is Adam Lebanon. I one of the CO founders here at established run as always. I'm joined by fellow co founded the man himself. The man who still has the nut F F P C team. I believe in second place it is of course Evan. Silva haven't what's going on. What's going on man coming off a it was not my best week from. DFS Played Way too much Chris Carson that that really hurt but had a great week for sports betting a nail the overs on the cardinals panthers and the steelers forty niners sealers forty niners came right down to the last minute again but had a really good week sports betting in doing really really well in the high stakes season-long still so looking forward to an exciting week for two teams on bias in week four and five and then we start to get a intellect four and sixteen byes of by little bit a little bit more relaxing with a cup just taking a couple teams off the slate helps a little bit for researching writing the match column and dealing with all the injuries we yep and we're GonNa talk about what happened to Chris Carson actually think Chris. I look back at it a lot and I've I thought about a lot I still think that Chris Carson was a really good play. WE'RE GONNA talk about that in the NFC version thankfully for me. I got bailed out by the Allan Boys Kyle and and Keenan. We're both awesome but anyway this episode. Episode Nineteen will be the AFC team by team and it will be free just a small sliver of the content slash information that we're putting out on a week to week basis on established the run episode twenty will cover the NFC and be behind the pay paywall so if you are not on a savage to run yet. We have a monthly option. We now have a weekly option which we just released last week. Get in there okay Evan. Let's let's get to it with the AFC and we'll start off with the Baltimore Ravens. You know I actually thought that it's tough for teams airhead and if you look at what teams going to Arrowhead have done on over the last couple of years. It's been a real struggle for them. And although the defense is not talented has scheme problems when teams to arrowhead the defense finds ways to rise up. I had a full fade going on Lamar Jackson Marquees Brown. Mark Andrews worked out well of course Mark Ingram ended up smashing but like I'm not going to sit here and kill Lamar. Mr Or Marquees Brown were under these guys for failing in Arrowhead. It's just something that happens. I'll just chalk it up and move on. Did you see anything interesting being out of Baltimore. Yeah so talked about this last week. In the match ups column it in the Week One game where they just absolutely blow blow torch the dolphins they were able to get ravens able to get all three hundred Baksh involved in week two Zulu bit closer and against the cardinals normals and we saw that was mark Ingram backfield and that was a good indicator that going on the road to Arrowhead where they were projected a plate from behind I think they wound up like six point or six and a half point dog and it was again the full monty for Mark Ingram and that wound up really really paying dividends he of course stole all the touchdowns and he was you end up being a a great contrarian play. I had positive takeaways from Marcus Brown because the dude had over two hundred areas he had and Lamar just didn't deliver on some of the throws and that's GonNa Happen. Sometimes Lamar is still will a developing passer. There's no question about it. with Markey's route I love the target share the Air Yard share and I think that he's going to be an excellent. A buyback option on the weak force like yeah agree. I mean markets. Brown was like to just misses away from a a monster week everybody would even. I'm really really excited about him so I'm certainly much higher going forward. Forget facet least in the week coming on Mark Brown than I was in the Kansas City game. let's go to Buffalo we know that Devon single payer's out icon expect him to miss again but we'll see either way. There's looked like a really good setup for Frank Gorman. They're fourteen nothing at halftime it still they gave not Yeltsin. Aide carries. Frank Gore got fourteen. It's just not a situation that interested in and then this week avenue the ultimate test I mean we've talked plenty about how I think and I think we think this is one one of if not the Best Patriots Defense we've seen in the Tom Brady era anything from Buffalo. They're going to have these kind of ofensive. You've Downer output games at times me. Josh Allen is pretty inconsistent but he's also they're also going to have spiked week games and we've seen a good combination of those in the first three games. This is getting a really tough test because there's almost no question I think in my mind that Stefan Gilmore is going to be on John. Brown and they're going to force worse the bills to work through guys like like Kobe's Louis and Dawson knocks a really interesting rookie rusher scored his first touchdown since high school. Oh Dawson Knox did not wear a single touchdown during his college career at Ole miss his first touchdown since high school last week but yeah I mean this is going to be a really interesting real life game. I think New England Buffalo and not necessarily the best fantasy YEP agree Let's move to Cincinnati non if you notice and I'm sure you did but a guy that I played in preseason I think once or twice in a guy that I know you liked in preseason. Auden tate ended up playing the AJ AJ green quote Unquote A. J. Green Role six catches for eighty eight yards on ten targets thirty four routes on thirty eight Andy Dalton dropbox. I don't see anybody talking about Austin. Tate on the waiver wire I don't know if you find anything interesting there with him whatsoever. He's a big dude who who can certainly physically dominate some opposing defensive backs yeah. He was kind of like the successor at Florida State to Kelvin Benjamin. Is that big a jump all receiver. I have not even looked at the Cincinnati the offense yet because this game on Monday night slate and we're doing this pretty early on Tuesday so I don't have any thoughts. I know that Joe Mix and just from having booked actually had a pretty good team but I don't have any definitive take takeaways to move onto the next one yeah yeah. I think it's I mean it's really tough sledding for the way. Cincinnati's offensive line is playing Joe Mixon right now CLEVELAND. I made a big move Evan. It's so funny like they go from thinking that dearest Johnson should should be their third down back to one week later not like mixing it in or whatever instead Nick Chubb in week three plays sixty seven snaps at the running back position. Everyone else plays zero zero. You know it's like they're just like so rash and Freddie Kitchens is coming under a lot of heat for his play calling not letting todd mahnken called the place Freddie Kitchens after the game comes down says now there's no question to keep calling the plays I don't know man. Cleveland offense does not look good right now and I was really high on them before the year Is there any hope I mean is Freddie Messing this whole thing up. I think there are team. That's GONNA look really bad for a while because their schedule is just absolutely brutal title for the next three or four games and then they wind up finishing pretty strong in the second half but that's not good enough season-long leagues like I'm just taking the L. on Baker Mayfield it dropping him and just streaming is another lesson. You know don't don't draft mid round quarterbacks in season law. Just I mean if you WANNA get nuts did did not take you know mahomes early. Take a watson relatively early or just wait until the double digit around don't mess around with the Baker Mayfield so just just dropping him that the offense is in absolute disarray right now. It's maybe the most discombobulated offense in the NFL Baker Mayfield does not trust. It's just protection one iota nor should he because he's dealing with as Brandon soreness pointed out since August fifteenth when we were July Fifteenth Eighteen twenty or whenever his article went up in late July. He's been pointing out with his bat offensive. I I thought they could work around it but they're doing the exact opposite things things that you do when you're trying to work around a bad offensive line there there route debts from their play calls are not even matching the down and distance like when they're on third and long thirty nine. They're having their receivers Ron. A twenty five or downfield routes and backer Mayfield is just constantly like scrambling to his right and delivering a throwaway or forcing pass it. It's an absolute disaster. I really don't and with Ray Kitchens Continua just being like Oh. It's all just take the boy. I'll just take the buying. I know that what he thinks. He thinks that he's doing something something like noble in sticking up for his players by doing that but you you also have to make changes. They are not helping their quarterback. They are you know they're they are not helping their quarterback in their quarterback needs help because of how bad is offensive line is and it's it's an absolute disaster oto back home is is going to be properly up and down. Jarvis Landry really really haven't seen anything from him. That's discouraging. They already lost David Giokoo. Yeah we'd have to really really really lower expectations for much the entirety of this offense yeah go into Baltimore in week. Four has ever mentioned schedule's not doing them any favors the Denver broncos showed up with their run game on Sunday Philip. Lindsay had a really game he was forty three hundred on draftkings and maybe should have considered him more I did not but still remains a pretty given timeshare Royce Freeman to get banged up in this game but did come back in. We had a really good fade. I many Sanders was owned and I think on both sides because he was really cheap and his box scores in week one and two. I was happy that we maintained in had a full fade on any senators in week three anything anything from the broncos trip to Green Bay Royce Freeman had an eighteen yard touchdown called back due to a holding Paneriai on Emmanuel Sanders Portland Southern Gotten. I think it has really started to quietly made a year to leak because the focus has so much been on Emmanuel Sanders and his comeback but coralline sudden has been pretty darn promising in early going Nova Fan continues to run a ton of routes and play a ton of snaps mistake prone to get strip for a fumble by Ajayi Alexander last week but I think that he is really an excellent tight end to hold for going forward especially in Titan in these f. f. e. c. elites like if you see him on the waiver wire grab him. I think that he is going to continue to get better as you know he came out is really really young. He's pretty raw but man their their feet and are putting a lot of opportunity on his plate his big playability and I think we're GONNA see him. Take advantage of that more as we move forward I had two notes is on the Houston Texans first of all Kenny stills severely out snap Kiki Kutai in that number three wide receiver spy believing that leading the Texans in receiving yards Kenny still did and then also man. I thought this was a reasonable spot for do Johnson. I mean they got down seven nothing early. They were down seventeen seven at the half and still do Johnson. Only two carries reason three targets on twenty-eight snaps man. It's tough for do Johnson's if he's not going to get involved in a big way in this setup. It's scary the thoughts on Duke steals in Texans Texans were behind you know pretty significantly in the first half and then entering a second half and Shawn Watson just you know Shawn Watson and trail mode like I'll take him over anyone except for probably like Patrick Mahomes and he winds up with a really really big week. He's been a top four finish back in two of the first three weeks with yet with Duke. Johnson just got a downgrade them to like an rb four stash at at this point. Bill O'Brien has fallen in love with Carlo side but you can't even use Carlos High. I mean his best game his best game so far in fantasy was week to get twenty carries for ninety yards zero catches he had nine fantasy points that you don't want to nine fantasy point so it's become you're still really really bad situation for fantasy because they're sitting down the guy that could be a solid fantasy producer. At least they're not shoveling touches on still a fifty fifty split in terms of snaps last week but they're not shoveling touches on Duke. Johnson's played a are under Carlos High. Recall was high is a bad fantasy player. Yeah Yeah I mean the commerce high thing reminds me of Gore and Peterson et Cetera et Cetera. It's like you know even if you get fifteen carries at a cheap price. It's not that good because you have to have a touching. They don't catch any passes. You don't have any explosive plays. Gore had like fourteen point five last week. I know I know not outcome for Gore. I mean home against the bengals. Any it's fourteen points. Okay the colts. I mean not only did they lose. Andrew luck to your retirement but they lose Devin funchess which whatever dump which is that good but you're still starting receiver for them. Now looks like they're gonNA lose. He's t y Hilton aggravated squad injury in that game they're very well coached. They're very good offensive line. There reasonable defensively Koby perset is better than people realize. It's getting hard for them to sustain any kind of offense especially without T. Y. Hilton was really mean so so so much I could see them going going back to a lot of twelve formations and using Eric Brown more DC Any value coming into light now assume that ty home's GonNa Miss Because they've just been using such a wide ranging rotation they they did let Jacoby percent open it up a little bit last week n. a. and you're right. They're so good at so well coached forty season forty percent of his attempts in week three came off play action on play action passes eleven fifteen eleven eleven fifteen for one hundred sixty three yards and a touchdown so you know they did start out just extremely extremely conservative and run heavy. Maybe we'll we'll see them. Open it up a little bit as the season progresses but without T. Y. Hilton I just I don't know I mean I guess the first guy that I would look at probably is Paris Campbell over Hebron. I mean Ebro and doyle genus. This makes that such an unreliable situation I think even dating back to last year. They are going to be facing the raiders this week. We'll talk about it on Friday. Show yeah okay the Jacksonville Jaguars man like if you just didn't watch the game on Thursday and you just showed up and look to the boxer you back Leonard Fournette at fifteen carries sixty six yards he had six catches. You know that's a reasonable game. What you would have missed is that on Leonard Fournette four hundred and four nights carries. He gained like negative six yards. I mean it was was ridiculous. I'm kind of getting to the point online for net. We're like yeah. He's touching the ball on ninety percent of The running back touches coaches. He's he's playing in the past game. He has it's amazing setup but for whatever reason it's just not clicking for him and I don't WanNa overrate like there. I you know all about opportunity but at the time I don't want to completely overrated and be blind to everything else I don't know what did you take away from Lennon for nets game in the Jacksonville on Thursday today yes. Scott Perry did a great tweet where it started off with like you wrote. The first run was negative. Six seven was negative for the third one was negative you know and then and then he was literally like you built up and finally he had like a long run of like six through like nineteen. Jerry's and then on the twentieth youth one you went for sixty eight yards body blows right body blows air stat establishing their own exactly that's exactly how you're established there but his touch counts have gone up each week. Leonard Fournette Seventeen in nineteen to twenty one week three three snap rates eighty six percent ninety seven percent one hundred percent. He is fourth among running backs in routes run and his fifth in Tar pits when you watch him play is like tip use a tip tone dancer right now who does not does not trust as blocks and again and this is not like criticizing him for not trusting his boxers or reason that he wouldn't trust is blocked because they're untrustworthy. I see I kind of think that he is a little bit of a by hi though because I do think that they can get this figured out in week five week four they face it the broncos without Derek Wolfe and then they face the Panther Panthers Without Cam Newton although they may be better with a Kyle Allen which is the way that looks so far and then they faced the same without drew brees and then they face the bengals so oh. I think they've got some positive James Script forthcoming in. I don't think this usage is going to go so I I actually would by the opportunity opportunity obviously would have to be for the right price not necessarily going out of my way but I there's no question that letter. Leonard Fournette fantasy owner in your league is frustrated because he has zero touchdowns. Yeah I mean Philly's frustrating and scare the other thing going on in Jacksonville Dj Shark is becoming a hot waiver wire pickup. Are you on board with that and we're gonNA compare some of these other waiver receivers here in a second when we get to fill door set but I'm just curious you can give if some people some background on DJ charge and what you think about him as a waiver pick up just a really really fast guy and has obviously developed a connection with Gardner Gardner Minzhu. You know he can make big plays. Gunderman shoe has been almost unsustainably effective on downfield on field throws He's only got six only six passes of twenty us yards and he's hit five of them but he's mainly a a short ball passer and when he's thrown short he's thrown into D. Westbrook who's been the worst player in the NFL through three games. You know him in. OJ Our so you know I mean just d-westbrook just a painful touchdown draw on Thursday night. He's got three drops over his last two games teams. lost a catch dude his own pass interference flag forty nine yards on fourteen targets over the last two in garden. Choose to start still leads the team in targets. Let's I mean the US has twenty targets as five more than DJ Shark from Gardner Menchu but the levels of play have just been totally different so it's a situation of organic continue to bet on the opportunity that you Westbrook is is getting or we're going to bet on the efficiency of Dj sharp because they've just been playing at different levels. Let's go to Kansas City. Damian Williams sat out this game with a knee contusion. I haven't heard anybody say that. It's serious we'll we'll see on his status with trauma. Koi came with an ankle injury seemed like he was playing at less than one hundred percent appeared to aggravate it late so Thera Williams actually led the way in this backfield Darwin Thomson Barely Played Now Daryl Williams has become a hot waiver. Adam and I get it right like anybody with a path to touches in this offense is someone that people should be excited about. I'm curious what you think of their Williams and how you would compare him to rex burkhead and Wayne Goldman on the waiver wire. I think I would go with Goldman and birkhead over him. Sierra Williams is still in a situation where in his touches are just so shaky week to week. I mean it's a good offense but there's I mean. I don't think he's going to run away with starting running back job. You know like I think that birkhead actually is to the point where you can envision him being the Patriots lead back here or at least sharing it with James Whitey for an extended period of time and then a Goldman certainly is going to be the lead back for as long as Saquon Barkley is out in an offense offense that mainly just predictably looks way way better as we were anticipating since you know since we started doing these odd gas with Daniel Johnston getting shell shell the corpse of Manning removing him from the offense and putting in some with some athleticism and willingness to throw the football downfield. We'll talk about that much more on NFC podcast us but just I would want to bet on a guy that has a chance to run away with the job rather than a guy like Williams did play okay well against the Ravens but I think he's just always to be committee back. In this offense yeah and stay tuned to the injuries you know we'll do the best we can to keep you you guys up to date on twitter about injuries. Damien Williams Trauma Koi because obviously that's important the chargers continued to just be one of the best fantasy fantasy spots in the league because they are so condensed and predictable right. They're compensating for bat offensive line. They're compensating for no hunter Henry by throwing short and quick to Keenan Allen in Austin cler a ton. I mean it's just awesome for full. PBR Like I've played Keenan an earlier every week. I don't have any takeaways here other than they're playing the dolphins this weekend. They're going to be popular and and I understand why it's just more of the same. I'm for the chargers yeah. I think this would be an interesting. GP Week for Justin Jackson. You know we kind of saw the effect last week with Tony Pollard already went off in the chargers are GonNa be incentivized this week to just you've Justin Jackson a whole lot more work talk about that in matchups in as we move forward this week on the Friday show all right you pooh-poohed Preston William's idea last week and it was close to really going off. I mean he had eighty six yards. I think on four catches but Josh Rosen going back to the preseason loves throwing depressing. Williams continued onto the regular season. I think you can call Preston Williams the number one wideout for the dolphins now of course that doesn't mean he's going to be effective or he's worth playing on a week to week. Basis just aren't out there though I don't really have much else on Miami. Yeah devante Parker continues to be among the league leaders in areas but Hermes Meyer is on the verge of redacting him right. Is that allowed how'd yeah yeah he did with Kelvin Benjamin last year 'cause Kelvin. Benjamin kept going into the Bilo model every week and he was just like redacted. You know we're not doing the same God Yeah Bilo Motto This past week by the way it was nice to obviously Mike Evans was obvious when I think people were on that but I Adele scheduling was one that piqued my insurance by being on the Bilo Model Chris Harris on Davante Adams so so yeah that was good anyways. We're not GONNA talk about Miami Lot. There is lots of talk about with New England's within the context of James. White getting hurt sorry with James. White not playing due due to his wife having baby join. Elvin getting hurt right before halftime within that context. I still think that Philip door sets is notable. you made a tweet about how James Devlin's injury effects Philip Door said I mean and and I would say that going back to last year. Tom Brady has been extremely streaming effective extremely comfortable throwing to Dorset. His catch. Rate is through the roof. He has eight touchdowns on his last sixty four targets. you know Tom. Brady likes during this guy and filter said I believe it was a former first round. Pick if I'm not mistaken of the colts like there's actually some talent here so I would really like Philip door set as a pick up to me. He's better than DJ charge. He's better than Agla. He's better than Preston Williams as pickups. I'm curious your take on this whole new New England situation yeah we got him in in on one of our F- F. E. C. main event teams. He scored six of these scored. A touchdown on six of the last is ten. Tom Brady touchdown passes as pretty amazing step shadow to Brian Paddick in on on our SEO crew team but yet he he's been super super efficient. He benefited obviously from his stock has just been BRECON skyrocket. Okay first of all we pointed out last week that there's no end in New England so the target distribution gets kind of narrow so that helps you also like the retirement of Rob Gronkowski helps the cutting Antonio Brown helps young stock was up a little bit more James Definitely goes on injured reserve now only two teams in the NFL that use a full back a lot the patriots in the forty niners for retirement US check and like that removes the ability of of the Patriots to use these fullback packages like twenty one personnel or I mean they did sign this international. Do Jacob Johnson last week off their practice squad only snaps. You played last week growing. You'll doubts so I mean they're not gonNA. They're not gonNA trust him like they did James Devlin so you're taking away like Alsan entire personnel packers that they use it like twenty thirty percent clip and now they're best personnel package. Is there eleven personnel package where you have doing element you have to set and you have Josh Gloria and you use Brian is or low cost as a blocker and you know you you you you are essentially you essentially become spread team. They may even start to use four receiver ten personnel with Jacoby Myers but either way Philip Morris set benefit also just their running game his stone and this is not a team that is going to continue to do things that are you know inefficient like they're going to self scout and they're going to put their best personnel on the field and Philip at this point is like a member of all old all of their best personnel packages so I I mean. I still think he's going to be a little bit up and down. You think you're still going to be kind of spiked week player but he's GonNa be you know in the mix as a wide receiver three flex every single week in tournament play every single week at Buffalo but he's definitely a guy that I would prioritize the waiver wire ars if he's available yeah and you mentioned the spot for Rex burkhead I mean I I agree that. It's it's surprising that Bella shake has a so infrequently been or so been imposed using Sony Michelle in the past game like all the off season rhetoric was also and he's so much better in the past game. I mean it's so ones mentioned when Sony comes in right now now. They're clearly better offense when REX burkhead is in there I don't know if it's because Bell Jack thinks that Sony incapable or whatever but for no matter what you saw it on a on Sunday even with the Patriots winning and crushing the whole game it was still rex burkhead more in the future goal now the Concern Ping expert Ken and blowing a lot of money on Rex burkhead doc is well James White's coming back and he's going to take a lot of Rexburg heads target projection but if you think that rex is GonNa continue to handle work inside the ten yard line at the expense of Sony and taste life. If an awful lot of that early down work will then we have a nice role for REX. I I don't know I haven't I know you're super biased on REX. He's like your favorite player in NFL history but do you have any any unbiased takes for the only player owns Jersey number. The trend man and I didn't listen to myself enough on this because I I've been on this train for a while. The trend in the Patriots backfield has been every year by the cheapest one and two dozen Sixteen League Garrett Blonde was an eleventh round pick for most of the off season and he went to lean. NFL in in the touchdown rushes in two thousand seventeen. No one wanted Dion Lewis. No I mean he went undrafted. You wound up being the league where later that year he needed todd Gurley or Dion Lewis or both to really win in the fantasy. Playoffs doesn't eighteen last year. No one wanted James. He wound up rex perk up like benefits six round pick James White was going in like the tent consistently you wound up scoring twelve touchdowns kinda faded down the stretch but he was he the League winner for the first ten or so weeks of the season and then this year there was a kind of a debate between who is is the cheapest one clearly wound up being expert you know because it was Damian Harris you know like the he was known like in the ninth or tenth and then burkhead was just kind of off the radar and birkhead now is looking like the running backs own in New England legitimate with the spread sets. That's going to hurt show me. Michelle and it's going to benefit rex haircut and James White Yep. Let's move onto the jets. I don't have much to say other than there's optimism that Sam darnold could be back in a couple of weeks until then. I don't see how I could pull the trigger on any jets. Anything different jets no but I will say that. I think that we should continue to Stash Robbie. I I I would say that. Chris Herndon is coming back in week six. It looks like Sam Darnold is going to be back in week five. I was talking with Aaron Schatz of football outsiders late late last week in there. SOS projections the jets have one one of the toughest schedules in the NFL to begin the year and have one of the softest going forward so I know it does not feel comfortable right now but a hanging onto system jets or you know like picking up some jets if you see him on the waiver wire. I don't think that's crazy forward looking decision at all. I think this is another offense offense. That just starts off poorly and kinda finishes fairly strong in the second half of the year the Oakland Raiders. I mean they're waller. I didn't think Dan Waller going to Minnesota really had that in him but he just continues to just be in his usage is out of control out of all tight ends in the league. I mean you can make a case that Darren Waller might actually have the best usage in terms of routes run per dropback in the slot red zone usage etcetera etcetera so that's about all I have to say about the raiders. Darren Waller's just straight baller yeah. His target right now is massive. I mean it's like almost forty percent just for in it'll probably come. I'm down but I don't know I. I think he might lead. NFL in all tight ends target's share like I think that this actually can keep up now gets Kohl's which is just one of the nut matchups for tightening solid super-g last week yep the colts. Just want you to throw your tight ended. Actually is and we'll talk about Arizona too when we get to the Friday show and we talk about matchups more but definitely Arizona cold. I look like to place and we WANNA use Titans against the steelers dealers madman. This one hurt Evan. James Washington played almost every snap Dante. MARKLE was inactive. Switzer barely played James Washington had a bomb like I think he would have caught it and maybe scored but it looks like a purposeful or we're almost purple pass interference that he drew but you know now no excuses the Sharon area failed down to Johnson out produced James Washington overall though I thought usage was good and there'd be better spots for Mason and Rudolf and Dante Johnson and Washington San Francisco and as crazy as that sounds like Richard Sherman continues to play at a high level this front four. We've talked a lot about how much draft capital they've invested in it. It's really good now. McDonald's her to which could in theory help James Washington and Deonte Johnson so disappointing overall but I think they'll find mind better spots what you see in Pittsburgh. Yeah just Rudolf with over in this game and I was squeak this one out big time because it was forty three. He landed on forty four and I'm watching. It lives with like two minutes. Three minutes left in the forty. Niners have the ball in the red zone deep in the steelers territory and you know I need. I need a touchdown extra point to get over and Garoppolo fumbles loses a fumble and then the steelers give it right back on a James Connor fumble and I'm just like Oh my God you know who here's our chance and Garoppolo sticks on in there to Dante feticide just erupt it was it was it was it was awesome but it was I mean I was literally sweating need this bad but yeah what a Rudolph stunk. I mean Rudolph was really bad. You know we talked about on I. I think it was on the Friday show. I was on the Tom Savage to nick foles spectrum because he's like kind of a kind of a slow footed but aggressive dude who oh you know might be kind of high variance with us on the Tom Savage side of that spectrum in week three really unimpressive in you know again. It wasn't the best match up. It wasn't the best spot but I definitely expected him to move the ball better than he did. You didn't wind up hitting a couple of long touchdown down. Passes Wants Johnson wanted you Smith Schuster but overall. It was not a It was not a promising effort from him. He goes back home in week four on Monday night against Cincinnati. He better look a lot better. You know it's a very similar situation like Mitchell trubisky like you need to be able to capitalize relies on the weak defenses and trubisky this past Monday night did enough We'll talk about that more on the show. Yep last team the AFC is the Tennessee titans written. I mean it's just like such boring football to watch and they're using this rotation at wide receiver and you know. I don't really have anything good to say about Tennessee whatsoever. I Dunno if if you had anything now I mean that week one game. Kinda gave some hope against Cleveland. Arthur Smith came out looking smartest first. I game has a no see this offense as given up four four nine sacks in their first games still a week away from Taylor. The one they're suspended spend a left tackle. A returning Derrick Henry at least has been a consistent so far. He's got twenty touches. Seventeen touches eighteen touches. He's got a touchdown in all three games not catching a lot of passes but it does draw the Falcons this week. Dion Lewis has not been a factor. Dr Delany Walker has been kind of okay but yeah I mean the receivers. It's IT'S A. It's a big rotate. Let's Davis is the clear one but but he certainly hasn't produced like through just Marcus Mariota has been train wreck and after that Thursday night game I wanted to Kinda you know like start writing about the titans for week. Four and I kind of pulled back is I was like man. Is He. GonNa get bench for Ryan Tannehill. Okay that's going to do it for this. AFC team by team podcast for the NFC version go savage to run DOT COM. If you're subscribe you'll be able to download it there. I know you guys are hoping and wanting us to find a way to get the pod onto onto itunes or another form that but also behind the pay wall surprisingly as I found out and we found out behind the scenes here that is actually more difficult than we realize so we're working on it. We're trying but anyways thank you for listening to this. AFC team my team version hope to see you guys for the NFC team by team version four Evan for Jerry for producer Luke. I am Adam good luck.

October 27 Hour 2 Nuggets Free Agency Looks and Trades | Broncos Offensive Failures

"After the hour. Back to the show, the whole show powered by PD. See. Energy. Brain Colfax, how you doing man? It's a crazy top text. Tuesday today it is. It's been good. Thank. The whole agains are Kinda, step up their game today. Think they're hungry they want the nuggets this nuggets gift basket here that we got gift basket give Gift Bag It's literally bag. It's a gym bag. You saw the Hoodie, the Hoodie. Suites like Nicole Yokich down the back. You're going to get more wear out of that. Then that's what we talked to the folks over fresco painter south ply who. This and continue to hook up with amazing prizes like a Philip Lindsey signed Jersey and McCaffrey ten football, and now the the nuggets gift bag. They say people are going to get more wear and tear out of Hoodie than you are. Jersey. Jersey now, and don't be one of those guys that wears a long sleeved shirt. Underneath Jersey. Do. That stay away from that bad look. Yeah. Just where the hood the Honeyman and you've got all the nuggets memorabilia stuff for the man cave in there. So that's what you're fighting for and Sir Charles is the Guy Right now that can win. He can take this thing he has what to he has to. So it's the first one. The way we do this thing we reloaded every three every time somebody wins three. We give them the prize than we reload it. So sir, Charles. Is At to a lot of people. Around. One at this point. I think Bogdonovich is a free agent. Dixon says, if you want to upgrade scoring at shooting guard, dude can shoot have heard a lot about him. Shoot the lights out and would be a great fit with the way. Joker passes him in marine MPG knocking down threes would be tough to stop. That's another big name to though there's there's about four or five realistic names out there. That makes sense but these are the is that I I would like Whitehead I through in there today but. I really don't know how much of a possibility that's going to be. And I honestly I don't know what the nuggets are going to do with the current guys millsap and plumbing are free agents but you know Mike Malone at the beginning of the season. He said, Plumlee if have twelve more plum lease. which would be an offensive disaster but he meant like you know the work ethic and the will to win the navy doing good. That we got into the playoffs and the things that plumlee is good at high energy rebounds defense. He wasn't doing at a high level at least in that series against the Lakers. I mean that's that's the thing that you're doing. Right? I mean and it was a little bit different in basketball. But you're trying to beat that if you're a team that is a consistent playoff team. And you're getting better will now you're you're trying to figure out how do we beat the favorite? You're no longer putting together a team that just trying to win. You know enough forty plus games to get into the playoffs. You're now building a team and constructing a team take to the next step. Because at the end of the day. I harp on this all the time but you're Carter set of best guys. If you are not putting your team together. To win a super bowl or a championship whatever you're wasting your time and are the nuggets wasting their time. I think that's harsh to say that because they've gotten better every single year but. The West is getting more difficult by the day. Almost, literally, by the day as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, he'll golden state comes back with vengeance. You know they want to be all about that Western Conference finals action. With Lebron, James You know they wanna be the one to to knock them out. You know they're taking ownership of it. and. You know the Lakers are now coming back. You won't ask what does Lebron have left approve everything's still because I don't care what you say. That was a bubble season. That has an asterisk on it. That championship is not as legit as others. The truth of it. At the end of the day were still going to. Talk about the fact that Lebron has four titles. But you know this was a strange year. This is a stranger for everybody even football there might be maybe a smaller asterisk because they're playing the full season out. But they're just weird things going on. I text line three one. Nine nine, six, this west is GonNa get tough, and that's those are the soul searching questions that you have. If, you are the nuggets. Is Can we win a title? Constructed as is. Dow refused away another grown Man Shirt Jersey a grown adult hashtag Paulo's for life like. It does say joker. Yokich on the back of it though. So. I think you can get past that. Jersey. It's a Hoodie and it's it's not his it's your hood is your Hoodie. It'd be your Hoodie it. And it's great. No. Works out. Weeden. Get in on the mix here if I were on staff helping with the draft Elway, here's what I want from a quarterback in the draft me got it. Hands slipped to scouts me. Here's a list of everything we don't want gets fired after draft broncos went through super bowls in a row. elway goes for the tall quarterbacks elway. Doesn't always seem to have A. Plan in place teams that draft best player available. Don't always have the best plan in place meaning they're not like you're not looking for who defines us as an organization. I think we got away from that ten twenty years ago in our county somewhat kind of getting back into that. Like the titans with Derrick Henry and then Mike variable they looked at and said this is who we are. We have a freaking monster. Of a running back. And We got an okay quarterback. That's actually pretty damn efficient to my surprise Ryan Tannehill. We own that. We're going to run its fourth and one on the goal line you know were running. We know we're running. Let's go. We're not trying to do anything different. So that's how they're going to continue the draft. As long as they have derrick. Henry. They're gonNA look hey, we need better. We got to continue to work on that offensive line. We want to be the best offensive line. We're okay with an average quarterback maybe above depending on the day for Ryan Tannehill, we have stout defence though that those are things that we want to be. I don't know who the hell the broncos want to be. And that's why he okay. Pillow Dan you. We'll talk about stepping away and you're like guard thinking about Garrett Bowles and patients I have stepped away although I did vote yes. Drew Lock is the franchise quarterback for the Broncos I still feel that way I may change that in four weeks. But I don't know how much of Pat Shurmur trying to confuse young drew lock. Is the reason for drew lock going big or go home on Sunday I mean all even at. Kansas. City's good and they have had they have a much better pass defense than they've had the past two years. But Eh, when are you taking your quarterback because he was going deep early? And if Pat Shurmur had a problem with the way, we had a problem with it. The way the broadcasters had a problem with it wouldn't Pat Shurmur said. Drew you got you got to quit going deep. Drew Lock talked a little bit about you know going deep and maybe just looking to take some of the underneath stuff. and. You know he even said he's like I can't I can't. The issue is Pat Shurmur not talking about that halftime is he not saying, Hey, you got a lot of stuff open underneath man we're running the ball. So damn well, they are having a hard time Gardner tight ends. They're having a hard time garden thought. So kind of go to the running back a little bit with Melvin Gordon I I'm just not sure. I'm not sure that the broncos know who they are. Scanned Torello. I. Don't know that he was a ground and pound type. Offensive Coordinator but. They were not this high flying flashy offense I mean coralline Sutton got more involved and I know that they didn't have the pieces for it. They brought Joe FLACCO. In. Because they were like, Hey, we're gonNA run the ball. We're going to bring in this broad Sean James into tackle we're going to fill up this offensive line we're spending some money there and we're going to give Chris Harris junior three million dollars on top of it just to make sure he's plays so he's happy and we're GONNA try to win games defensively. This year draft to wide receivers in the first two rounds were signed Melvin Gordon were we're going out we're going to draft another tight end and we're GONNA go out and sign a tight end. And then we're going to get an offense volume like you added a lot tools to an offense and I ask you know we have Steph Steve Fairchild on this show quite a bit former C. as you head coach former Gordon the NFL. and. I brought up in the summer. I said is there is there time when you can give a quarterback too many weapons. And of course. Steve's an office coordinator. I agree with why he said this but he said, no, you can never have too many weapons. Can You? I mean. This has got to be a situation where I still feel like you gave him way too many things. Way Too, much of an offense right off the bat. When folks it's pretty simple. When Philip Lindsey Melvin Gordon are at their best even individually, they should be good for close to one hundred yards and that opens you up to do a lot more. But. With the Broncos I felt like and this is again a very basic way to look at this but I saw. RUN RUN. Run Deep Ball. Run deep ball a lot of it. It's it's crazy to me. Pillow fight. Dan also is there any worse fan and the guy who wears irrelevant Jersey to a game being played? Yeah. That is the worst fan ever. That is good data. That's a good. But I agree. I. Got You. Do who is that guy? So I got a story for your Colefax training camp up here in Greeley years ago, and they used to Broncos you've come to training camp. Used to law lineup. Do you autographs and all that stuff and get autographs from everybody? I'm wearing a Shannon Sharpe Jersey because it's broncos training camp. My little cousin from Oklahoma where a Michael Jordan Jersey. A Michael Jordan Jersey training camp. We're lined up to get autographs from Terrell Davis. All of us are pushing to get autographs and find td's in. Amazing. And finally he's like, all right. Last one. Cousin with the Jordan Jersey puts his you've got a bumper sticker he puts it up there td signs it. And the whole crowd's like what this this little guy with Jordan, what the hell is that so he leaves my dad knows that okay I'm just GonNa. Say This my dad knew my cousin and he's like this kid's going to lose that autograph in a heartbeat. So I'm GONNA pull fast one people are already judging in their cars my dad found. In other bumper sticker signed it gave it to my cousin. I. Have that autograph. Now you want to know what my cousin did with that bumper sticker that my dad gave him a year later, the one that my dad signed. He lost it. It's gone forever. So those of you and your car's thinking my dad's jerk for this he saved Terrell Davis autograph and Broncos Country Better for it. So thank you father crucial. GUYS FROM OKLAHOMA He's in Michael Jordan Jersey I don't care if he's eight he doesn't deserve it. You gotta you gotTa. Be Strict with this man. Pillow fight, Dan do you have any idea with changing coaches and quarterbacks? Every year does on a fan snip snap snap snap. I love that reference by the way. You're right though that fan who shows up to a Nuggets Mavericks Game and is wearing a Bulls Jersey. Or just Oh, it's basketball. Any Jersey will do no and it won't do. Stop It. If you I'd rather you just wear regular shirt. But just as I like to party I don't don't represent any team. Dixon here will reward more text we'll take a break. You guys are on fire today. Brady. Got To cut me some slack not able to bring the game today as I'm multitasking, trying to win triple t and an online training for work and to the other Hogan's listening to the radio and dry day drinking does not count as multitasking. Sometimes some of the best, some of the best tax come from those day drinkers while drinking focusing on the taste of the beer. And listening to the program that can be difficult thing sometimes, I, need your undivided attention nineteen minutes. After the hour we're going to take a quick break here sidestepping for a moment, but I do want to continue this conversation about Pat Shurmur Andrew. Lock and maybe were just putting way too much. In this guy's brain we need to simplify things slow down he's eight years old. You know give him time. He's doing star wars. and Toy story references he's five we need to slow down. Your five year old can't read. You know an entire novel he can't read Moby Dick yet. He needs to read spot give drew lock spot and you will win more football games. preps radio roundup coming up next presented by Weld community credit. Union with the one at all Clark numbers Johnson, we'll be right back. No cone now. Weekdays at four on northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten K of k Dan Patrick the whole show and Colin Coward.

Is it ever okay to wear Jersey to a game that does not represent either team? Clark John's Clark numbers Johnson of preps radio, and we're doing our preps radio round up here. Do you think that's okay absolutely. You think it's okay. As long as you're representing sport in fact, I've done that before I've done that before I've I find that the ones that are that are agreeing to this have done it or to I went to a hockey game once between Arizona and I think it was Philadelphia. And I had the only thing I had that was sports related was my but you did it Patrick Rogers and so I went to. The Arizona arena with you know but did nobody yelled at me and said, Hey, you're the wrong. It's I always thought it was weird. I never went on this campaign against it though but me personally, if it was broncos chief or let's just say it's a neutral team chiefs chargers. And I'm like with my friends go into a game or something I would rather just wear a regular t shirt right I. Most of all I had was the Broncos Jerusalem people I know that go to games would be the same way. In fact, there's some that make fun of me because I go to a an APPs game and wear the Jersey. There they want dressing. They're in there. They're in the in the seats down low and they want address in their in their leather jacket and be the Mr Businessman I'm let it all hang out. Yeah. Tell me I'm a kid because aware Jersey come now. I have no problems with Jersey, I think like. Jerseys are great for games and stuff but like. On an everyday basis where it out in public I, don't really wear I used to. I wear maybe highs where into embel- into embellish the game a little bit. Yeah. I'LL WEAR JERSEY game. It doesn't have to be that team. It's. So I'm wearing a hockey Jersey to a hockey game. Yeah. Usually Sweden. But but yeah, I'll go anywhere. Yeah I'm definitely the. Like local I'm GONNA wear memorabilia to wear broncos. Jersey then got to put the guns out there and a nugget you'd go to Doug it's game though don't you have some nuggets gear I used to have an Alex English Jersey Brother gave me when he because he was like twelve when he had it I I can't wear it anymore because it looks like it's a belly button shirt. So I can't wear that it's just gross. Plus I don't WanNa get the guns out there. Yeah. You'd have people have girls Lens Yeah you gotTa be careful with that. Football. Game. Is. Your parents with you. My my parents always bought me an extra large Jersey right why would. Always ask I don't look good in this I'm wearing the rest to the game. I'm like yeah let's go. With that little boy. To lash the rest of your life. That's Buying you one I believe me I go I go and buy my son when he was eight or nine years old a seventy, five dollar Jersey and you're like you better make last he's going to be out of it. So it's like the one you're right the one time my parents bought me a Jersey that actually fit me like a regular human shirt. He was a Shannon Sharpe Jersey and I wore that thing bloody man that the numbers were peeling off of it and my mom's like and that was like a year and so the next. She Bill. Romanowski. Jersey, that's a blanket. She goes. Here you go. Live well, she knew I wasn't going to wear it as much. You know the sharp. Jersey I'm wearing because I look I look because it actually fits me. But the Broinowski. Jersey, it's down past. My knees you know, and if I have shorts on people, don't think I'm wearing any pants. I. Mean any kind what about old jerseys that the player has been traded? and. That's a retro. Jerseys. That, you're okay with it. I'm good with that I. Love going to the game and seeing the sweetest jerseys from Forsberg be still seem the the Quebec Jerseys from years gone by so. Any of that stuff's good Y- said Chris says, Hey, have to consider after paying the price to some games you CAN'T AFFORD JERSEY. There's like eighty one hundred bucks I guess depends on the Jersey my dad would always be, why do you like the jerseys just get a t shirt with the number on it in the name on the bed on the other hand not even close to the same my son and I bought tickets third party last year for Hawks and And the avalanche, and by the time we were done with tickets parking the hotel that night it was a six hundred dollar trip. I didn't feel I wouldn't have felt bad about going in and paying one hundred for Jersey. Point? In the tank. Best. Question Power to play sports poll question is it okay to wear Jersey to sporting event? It's not representing either of those teams Clark says, yes. Wheaton, said yes as well. You guys are on the same page and always a diehard hockey fan. Maybe it's hockey thing could be. All could be a hockey thing because you're always like we got a representative the sweaters. Yeah. That's don't call it a uniform Jersey it's a sweat. Best like as far as to if you're going to wear them out and about agree sweaters are the best overall. So go to the go to the whole show dot com vote on that sixty, six percent of the Hogan saying no at this point. So go vote with the whole show dot com preps, Radio Roundup presented by Weld Community Credit Union didn't get a chance to catch up yesterday it was crazy. Dave. Clark. But. You guys had the Loveland Greeley West game over the weekend, and that went about like you thought it was going on paper. It looked like, would it did at the end of the game fifty, eight, thirteen, a loved one wins again. So now all of a sudden radio, you're getting the comparisons how does this team compared to the two thousand eighteen team? Well, that team in two thousand, eighteen that one title beat skylines sixty, two, fourteen in the finals that year they beat everybody on their schedule by a million and a half that's the best. Team, I've ever seen out here regardless of classification. So not fair to to to compare the Indians to that, but they're terrific in this setting this year we'll find out Sophomore Garrett said was our crp four by four player of the week three rushing touchdowns one passing touchdown how about Zach Rakowski? This is the the Austin Cler of two, thousand twenty he's a small kid five, ten about fifty. So He's not getting any love from colleges has eleven touchdowns in three games. The kids going off the hook by his coach Jeff Marcus shopping him. Just trying to get him recognized by the college out here instead of you think some of these colleges learn a lesson. Bit Size isn't always Always, it seems. So anyway go down and talk about Windsor as well. They beat Eerie what a game that was the game of the weekend thirty, eight, thirty, two in double overtime Windsor gets a win and we'll see the wizards through cobol. All the changes in the schedule will see the Windsor Wizards Friday night Silver Creek will come into wins we'll have that game at seven o'clock. So Windsor Seven RPI remember top eight teams make the playoffs regardless of what conference Iran. Doesn't matter if you've won the conference, it's just those top eight teams at the end of the year so so we'll see but yeah, it's GonNa be fun to watch. That ballgame. Windsor Silver Creek seven o'clock on Friday night some schedule adjustments you've had to do this a few times this year. If you go to the website, you'll see birth at severance on Friday not not so much now. So we'll try to get that updated for you, but that was literally an hour. We'll have a Saturday game, but that's whereas Christian and university, which will also by the way be at Windsor School Razz playing their home games at Windsor, high, school this year. So we'll see that but Yup fun stuff to talk to of how about how about the writers row noticed one in the state forty to nothing over Thompson Valley yeah just. Walking apart, form what was interesting they were coming off the biggest win as lane wapping said the coach at Roseville maybe the biggest at least regular season win in his tenure there and you. You hope you don't fall flat the next week right against a team you beat seems like the writers just took care of senior bring hearts and two more touchdown passes. What's different? What do we know about Roosevelt in the past? They run the ball yet the ball run the ball this year, really balanced throwing the ball and running the ball, and maybe that's the trick may be offensively to our staff. Now, Clark I always enjoy it when you're talking to coaches to because there are some coaches that you'll hear in your programs Prep free-ride preps. On Wednesdays and Saturdays. That will tell you you know we have a philosophy jerk and we make sure our kids they follow that philosophy or you get the other coaches that are like you know what? We mold our offenses and defenses to fit what we're getting in. Here. I think it's always fun to watch how those those coaches balanced. Clearly you have that Roosevelt where, Hey, we sold it to how how we get with our with our players and don't in that vein. Don't you feel that Chris Jones and Windsor Kinda just stick to that notion gasoline never throw the quarterbacks that can throw. You would think once in a while they'd have somebody that go downfield but they run the ball and you know what I it's fair if you can run it like that successfully and you're not turning the ball over, it's what you say about a pass only there's three things can happen in two of them are bad though the ball it's true I love throwing the ball Bronco should've listened to that on Sunday very much. So but I tend to I tend to kind of like the Windsor Philosophy, but it's clearly working with Roosevelt. So doubt about it. All right top top-ranked res- Christian. Remains unbeaten two is an unskilled upon. seriously no points no points. And Forty to nothing they've played hazing and the issue here is they played really. They've played terrible team so far to be honest with you So RPI y guest where they are number one in the rankings, their number nine RPI right now, they wouldn't even if it stopped today, that's why I say go easy on the RPI right now wait a couple more weeks. But right now, if you go look risk Christians I take is that did I get that right number nine RPI. that's right for nine RPI that's unbelievable but it's who you play. So when they when they took eaten out of the Patriot League, West that's a that's a team we're going to score smart guy points against that. Took them out, Resumes Week Sisters of the poor in their conference they've got you H and that's it which is number four RPI right now. So reservoir earn some. Points this weekend and they'll probably beaten debut h is never beaten Resin I. Don't know why this year is going to be any different Sorry. Casey Dasa hope it is I hope it's a would love nothing better than gray game for us Saturday night it's Halloween maybe something spooky will happen. Yeah. You never know but that's the that's the problem with this year is it's all RPI. The fourth tier RPI and and if you're playing a week schedule with only eight teams in the plants, you might get left out. It. It's just so hard. That's so tough and I know this you're strange. But the the whole RPI thing is still very difficult for my brain to wrap around because you can be, you could be unto. You could be undefeated right and I'm. In, a strange miss out here's something to watch if you're a res- Christian Fan to Tanner Appleby, who is now just four sacks away from the Colorado career. How have last week at four or last year that was the first big game he had this year he was ten and a half back coming into it. Or Marino but remember class Campbell's part of that group. I? It's just that it's crazy stuff, but he's four away. So he's going to get there. He'll get the the tanner appleby will be your sack master for all of Colorado Football forever and ever, and we'll find out what that looks like. That's fun severance the real deal Clark, Wail University beat them I mean severance goes without seniors and their first two games they play weaker teams and hadn't been scored upon but you HP twenty, six fourteen. So kind of put severance where I thought they would probably go. Kyle Jones hundred, fifty, five yards two rushing touchdowns for university will see him on on Saturday night and Kayden meaner another terrific runner. In fact, we're trying to get both of those kids on tomorrow's preps midway appropriate. So an Casey dos upon the phone tomorrow too. So I hope that you h can give res- Love Jeff Van Winkle and everything whereas does that you want to. See a great game. Now when we saw eaten, go against Razz last year and that the a great game took a of kickoff return of the end to to settle it. That would be some fun to have a game like that. But how good is res-? May Be untouchable. We'll find out. Yeah. Clark Johnson and grey work from you covering all these teams out there even games that you're not doing individually. You are covering the the lay of the land throughout northern Colorado. Yeah. No doubt about it. I, WANNA. Thank both Community Credit Union they have this news zo go APP that are partnering with developed by Duke University's behavioral scientists were everyone from kids. doodles can earn money while they learn about money while.

E. L. D. and you work towards a financial freedom and learn at the same time. Great thing for your younger kids to start learning about finance I. Love it man that's all well community credit union thank. Joanne Yates, and everybody out there Clark job as always we'll keep our eyes out at thirteen. Conference updates on that schedule sounds good. All right. My friend power to play sports question Clark would do it. Would you wear Jersey to a game? Is it okay to wear Jersey to a game that's not representing any of the teams involved go ahead go vote at the whole show dot com thirty, eight minutes after the hour we're gonNA wrap up top text Tuesday shortly, I'll get to some of these. Some of these are good we're kind of we're going to be a tough spot as far as deciding who's winning today Colfax. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash here MORNINGS WITH GAIL weekdays six to nine and northern Colorado's voice thirteen, ten KFI A. Monday mornings with gail an update on fire activity in northern. Colorado and beyond and a review of some of those pesky ballot Nassar's join US sixty nine, thirteen, ten. KFI Kagan. So, this is an interesting one. McLean brings this up and says that's like wearing a guns and roses shirt to a van Halen. Concert I. I don't Know Colfax I. I tend to look at it a little bit differently like sports a little bit differently than than the rock. Maybe that's the problem I'm not sure. You're supporting rock music. You don't WanNa wear a beyond say shirt to you know. Now concert. No. I think wearing the same Jonah music music is fine especially if it's something maybe not as well known and maybe you can turn some people onto something like you know. Yeah. Because I feel like that's still different 'cause they have opening acts. So there's GonNa be three or four bands before that. So you're all spreading the love like at a Broncos game you're not gonNA see the jets play the Patriots I. Thas, not going to happen. So that's our power to play sports poll question. It's fun I like this one. I do I. Don't I don't hate somebody who does it but I wouldn't do it. Like I'm GonNa either where if I don't have the proper gear for one of the teams and I'm going to show support even if it's a neutral team that don't really care about. Then, I'm GonNa just wear like a t-shirt. Like Iraq t shirts, I won't wear a different team. You said something different. Kind of interesting though. Yeah so I think I think you can wear A. Jersey of a team that's not playing. If you're attending. A Lesser League like you'd wear Broncos Jersey. To See US you game. broncos Jersey to a an Alabama game. Sure even though it's not in the state, I mean their fan base might get upset by that. But you you're saying it's alright. If I if I'm downgrading I can wear a broncos now but can I. Can I wear in Alabama Jersey to a Broncos game now? Going up you can only go his. Flying Dutchman says absolutely. It's okay to wear Jersey for another team shows you a fan of the sport and that you like to appreciate other teams of players. But at the end today you're showing your favorite now. I feel like the ones that are answering. Yes or like the ones that just kind they had like, how? What am I going to wear going to an avs game? It's all I've got is this red wings I'm nowhere to that. Yeah. You get in trouble for. US 'cause I I would use to go to Broncos steelers, and I remember one time. It was like eight people with jets. Jerseys. What what first off why jets followed there's a good jets following in. DENVER. At least there used to be back when we had season tickets in the nineties. But. Yeah you'd see that all-time new says, Hey, I, wear my in sync shirt. John and love. Justin. But nickelback. noobs all decked out nickelback like he paints his face he paints his beard and away the looks just like the lead singer of nickelback when he goes to one of those concerts. So our consensus today. Let's see. Wheaton. So here's Wheaton I actually think the grates are okay. Sporting events so great. So he's saying you can wear great jerseys, Kobe Jordan Gretzky? Montana. They show that person loves the game and more than likely. They have one of the teamsters home but they WANNA show they're there to enjoy the love of the game. So in rates there now, if you wearing Jordan Jersey to any basketball game, that's not the bulls just shows you know nothing about basketball if the Bulls are playing the nuggets, your nuggets fan and you wear a shirt if you wear Jordan Jersey. Let's face it everybody Jordan. Yes. So what does that couples applying? No but if you were to if the Bulls aren't playing, it just shows you know who Michael Jordan is yeah congrats. Yeah, I'm I'm either wearing Jersey of the or some kind of memorabilia of the team like even if I go to a game, I'm wear well as a media guy I have to wear neutral colors. So what we're told, but if I'm in the stands, I'm wearing a rams hat or a beanie or something. Pillow fight Dan it's like wearing A. Shirt to a Taylor Swift concert at least we can agree socks I. Think they're both awful. So I wouldn't wear either of those. Is it okay to wear Jersey to a rock concert? Sure can you you wear like Peyton Manning Jersey? To. A seven dust concert. Album less Friday. Yes. Okay. Okay so I'm just trying to make sure. I'm just trying to make sure that we've got this down because these are these are tough. These are tough. We have a lot of we have a lot of rules. He said Chris can you wear Texas holdem poker shirt to a BINGO. Parlor. Yeah. That's pretty good. You're where the wrong game get Outta here. Wait are take kindly year. That's good. It's like wearing a Barkley Jersey to a boy's and girl's Club to be meant tour. Barkley says he doesn't. He's no hero. He's no role model boys and girls clubs all about role models and okay. Yeah. I. I. I Kinda I kinda. Forty eight minutes after the. Well we're off the rails I wanted to talk more about this drew lock Pat Shurmur thing. Nukes says stop treating him like a baby. He wears it. He's not Allen from the hangover. You don't have to treat them with kid gloves. I think maybe you do for a little bit here. I mean again, it's not as embarrassing or demeaning as I making it sound. But you need to simplify stop with the three four wide receivers out there. Tighten it up, run the ball. And and don't go for the home runs. Just try to get on base. Inside the pair. Stan presented by Chris Musa. Agency allstate insurance tonight at six northern. Colorado's voice thirteen, ten KFI. Go cone. Now. Weekdays at four on northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI K.. Lasalle for the car out of Buffalo quarterback and you're listening to the whole show on. Ten KS KS. I gotta read this one two. Cool vk. Raider Fan. Where this is the worst kind of fan by the way, I saw a raider fan wearing his Jersey to a bronco game but the raiders were playing at the same time as the broncos were playing they weren't playing the Broncos they were playing at the same time. What kind of Fan doesn't watch team and then and then to brag about your phantom. You know say Oh no, I'm I'm raiders raiders are playing right that's a fake Fan Colfax know that might be some of the best fan because he went into enemy territory. and. It was fighting the good fight while his team was five trying to go in and distract just trying to go in and mess with people's mind. Maybe it's the other way round. He's not actually watching his guys though. He doesn't need to worry about. Out there fighting he's he's like. The guys that travel with the band's. roadies they're not really there to watch the band. They're there to like help and sacrilege. Hecht and do all those things. They don't actually get to enjoy the music as much because they're focused on other things even though they're obsessed with the band. Exactly. Okay. So that is of eroding who's getting the WHO's getting this today listen it was all pretty damned good today it is very difficult but Colefax this took us in a really fun discussion. This poll question took somewhere. And if you can. The Jim Rome? Think if you can make this show better, I'm going to reward that pillow fight day. Dan Kennedy Showbiz today Colefax. He made it better. He now has to next week Sir Charles Pillow Fight Dan will be in the mix to win it. You guys that competed today still have an opportunity will find out that's going to do it for us. We'll be back at it on a Wednesday jam packed show coming up good northern, Colorado?

Has Tom Brady Lost his Magic?

"Crude oil is crude natural gas is pure. That's why Pennzoil's based. Oil is made from natural gas not crowed gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pennzoil based on sequence for aware tests using sap five W. thirty. You see all those tweets on that little screen there. Yeah. That's from our guys. Ryan. Clark and Marcus Spears as well as many kinds. Everybody talking about last night what a start to week five it was as we welcome you to nfl live we'll tell you why the bears might be for real a little later on Marcus Spears of courses here. And Ryan Clark we're GonNa get to then but field yates is where we begin today the latest news in the NFL and field. It's been a tough week on the covid Front for the NFL, the jets now dealing with a presumptive positive test what can you tell us? Laura as you noted, just about nine, forty five, this morning word broke that the jets sent home their players and their coaches and all those inside the facility because a presumptive positive case amongst one of the players on their roster. Now, as the NFL has within its protocols, there will be contact tracing conducted, and all players will be retested as a result of that presumptive positive and. As of right now, we are expecting potential word about whether that re-test was actually a second positive or potentially a false negative in which case Sunday's game against the cardinals would seemingly be very much on track. But even if a player does test positive, it is still possible this game against the cardinals which is scheduled for one pm on Sunday could be conducted as scheduled Arizona Cardinals. Within the last hour or so have made it clear. They are continuing to prepare for their flight, which will be later on today with a long cross country trip to new, Jersey to play the jets on Sunday. But as is the case around the NFL not just specific to week five. But really for the rest of the season, everything is an hour by hour arrangement before right Now the jets and cardinals still making plans to play on Sunday despite the possibility of a possible positive within the jets facility. This morning field you could even argue it's like minute by minute at this point and you will be keeping us up to date on all of this by the minute you're with us all show long as well coming back with some injury updates momentarily in the. Effort of good news both the Patriots and Titans had no new positive test today the titans have not been in their facility since September, twenty nineth with twenty-three positives and the Patriots have been away from there since two fun Gilmore tested positive on Wednesday. So here's a resulting changes that have come down this week due to the positive corona virus tests the Broncos and patriots now playing. On Monday on ESPN so to Monday night football games, ESPN the bills and titans currently slated to play on Tuesday at seven Eastern and as long as Tennessee receives no more positive tests the chiefs and Bills Games will be played on. Sunday. October eighteenth this according to our own Adam. Schefter. Let's get back to Thursday night. The bears improved to four in one last night got much of. Their offense in the final two minutes of the Haves Nick foles went seven for eleven fifty seven pass yards threw his only touchdown during those four minutes which led to the bear scoring seventeen of their twenty points after the two minute warning on the other side Tampa. Bay's offensive line struggled allowing ten pressures three sacks that committed seven penalties including four holding calls that's tied for the. Most by any team in the game, this season, this led to a night to forget for Tom Brady who was off target in a season high twenty four percent of his passes was looking confused following the final play the game leaving many to wonder if he got letdown at was, you see him holding up his fingers with the four there here's more from Brady and Bruce Arians on. Did he not notice fourth-down? He knew he knew I knew we needed a chunk and I was thinking about more yardage Amana. Just as bad execution and we had great opportunity there. So. It's not the next. Cute we need to. We all have to do a better job. This isn't any one position. This is anyone player his team white thing. With twelve. Haverman and we had and especially when we were down there once and putting up because of about six or seven penalties on one drive so. I didn't have our team ready to play. One game but I felt like we got outcoached and. Got Up played. Here's everybody Hi Guys Ryan Clark are you buying that Brady. Knew it was fourth down that final play Absolutely. Not I'm not buying this like I haven't been out buying stock during covy this ain't the time and this ain't the time for me to believe that Tom Brady knew that it was four down listen after that play when you hold up your forefingers and you have the look on your face that's forefingers question mark not forefingers because I know it's supposed to be down on the next play and this is okay this isn't an indictment on Tom Brady's entire career but. In this moment that he was brought over to be better than James Winston, he was brought over to control situational football moments. This is an unexcusable mishap mishap that cost the Tampa Bay buccaneers this game and it is just one game and it is just one moment. But now you put yourself squarely back in the fight for the NFC south with the New Orleans Saints and May Have Cost Yourself playoff positioning the a very important game. This was a very unexcusable or inexcusable. by Tom Brady and a lack of communication and organizational failure by the Tampa. Bay buccaneers. Now, you move on from it but Tom Brady absolutely had no idea what down it was and that's on him. One hundred percent like what are we talking about? There's no reason to make an excuse talk about anything else Bruce. Areas, and Tom Brady on a different eight. They don't know what she what each other knew and Tom Brady. Didn't know it was down like we don't need much but film in this world to tell us what's going on especially when we watch an entire game transpire and Tom Brady had no ideal. First of all, he wouldn't have made this thrown if the Ford now this dude I. Like, what are we talking about? Anyway, you think about this game and is entirely and I really don't walk away from this game necessarily saying Tampa is in a large amount of trouble they shot themselves in the foot time and time and time again, you passing affairs pendency penalties you had the center for Tampa extra like he's been doing every game jet to stop it Bro wouldn't whistle blow back to. Stop doing foolishness you call senior team we looked at a drive with six store were on them like that is the story of the night miscommunication not being prepared and doing too damn much Oh and by the way the musters may was on the other side Khalil Mack reminded us all why he is that new because he took advantage of everybody they tried to block him. Marcus I'm with you I'm not terribly. About the bucks I mean they're not going to have that many penalties again hopefully. Some of the pass catchers are gonNA come back healthy. Tom Brady's not gonNA make that's sort of mental error again but the play of the offensive line is concerning because they've been so good this year protecting Brady. But when they don't protect him when he's under pressure, he's been really bad twenty, nine, thousand Qbr twenty eighth in completion percentage win pressured and you saw that last night I mean Donovan Smith got handled portrait and see a great season but Khalil Mack made it look like his little brother if his little brother was five times his size ugly and it's so important going for Brady because the issue is Brady I've been saying this over and over it's not the arm. It's how many plays under pressure it's the agility it's being forty three years old and these young men coming at you they need to keep him clean. Otherwise offense is GonNa look like they did last night. Ryan bears fans are out there like why aren't you guys talking about us? We won the game. So what did we learn about the bears? Hey, listen I. Think What we learned about the bears is not necessarily actually better off physically with Nick foles, but this defense is coming along. They didn't stop the run Ronald. Jones was still able to get a hundred yards. But when you look at what they were able to do with pressure in town Brady's face rushing him up the middle and obviously Khalil Mack on the outside Sunning anybody who was trying to block him and the secondary is really good. How Fuller is a Pro Bowler? Eddie. Jackson one of the highest paid players at his position on other side Jaylen Johnson has been balling and so this team could keep some of these things up what you hope is. Is What you saw. Last night if Chicago bears right you hope that the Games are close an situational football moments. Nick foles can make plays and that's what we saw last night. He wasn't necessarily great all game. He was absolutely horrible in the beginning, but he never gets shaken. He never gets to a point to where he can't make plays when he has to the had a great scheme and strategy understanding of backs out of the backfield will be open and he hit them Chicago bears art world leaders but I believe they can win enough games to put themselves in the playoffs and then you hope you can onto magical corporate ride that is Saint Nick Hose in the Super Bowl. Sounds. Good right to talk about the carpet right and and here's the thing what did yesterday against a really talented Tampa Bay defence probably has to be a good confidence builder for him. Oh. No doubt. It actually solidified Matt Nagy Goal Into Nick Foles this game did I. Think more so than the comeback against the Falcons everybody comes back against the Falcons listen what Nick foles is doing for the Chicago Bears Falcons. In, this regard I have to disagree with my brother and say, look, this is they. They made not put up the same gaudy numbers. They won't have a prolific offense maybe once every blue moon. But what Nick foles will do is probably take care of the football and leave it in the hands of making those plays being good at situation though. Like Ryan and deferring to their defense to make the big plays in the game listen this is this is similar to win. We're REX Grossman was the quarterback for Chicago for the bears and we talked about how good that defense was and the offense was kind of just doing what they needed to do to keep things from going. Haywire. MEGATON ECZEMA sideline. Listening and you like Oh the Golden Age Rex Grossman back when things were better. Markets roles he makes some plays that. Ski Does Not. Play. Wheel Route I. think it was Tim Montgomery when he was under pressure can show that that was the snitch. He doesn't necessarily make that throw look at this but then I mean, did you see this d I want to call it a deep ball to a poor Mooney pull that one up I mean this looks like fifty cents through that. First Pitch. Trying to go with that but. I. Try CD game or week to week is like trying to predict the weather unless you live in. Los Angeles where it's perfect everyday. You don't know what you're going to get. There's some upside there but you better pray this defense continues to play at an elite level because he is not consistent. Foles Nick foles our policies are tried. But mean comes at Ryan Clark. The fifty, the fifty cent first pitch might be the worst insult we've had on the show the entire time that we've been on this show. One thing that really is important guys. Into Veto. For. The bucks that's big with the ankle, the broken ankle, they don't know exactly how long it will certainly be a while. New, on NFL live field yates with some news about the Patriots and their return to their facilities. What are you got? Some good news here is the Patriots are now expecting to return to their facility tomorrow after three straight days of working remotely in the team anticipates having a practice at ten thirty, a M eastern time. Of course, this is contingent upon no new positive tests tomorrow morning, but there have been multiple consecutive days without any new positive tests for the team. So things are trending off and moving forward towards the game, which will now be played at five pm eastern time on Monday and of course, right on ESPN. Yeah. Exactly. We gotTa Monday night football doubleheader this week. Let's get to some of the biggest injuries this week as well. Field we start with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The L.. Let's start there because it is probably the biggest name is dealing with the new injury this week although it may not be much cause for concern, Lamar has been questionable. He is listed as questionable. I should say after missing book Wednesday and Thursdays practice with the knee injury also battling a bit of an illness of course, non covert related he is expected to go. He's them well, Ravens listed as questionable. All should play on Sundays they look to improve to four and one now more quarterback news as Jimmy Garoppolo who has missed multiple games now for the forty niners actually moving forward and progressing towards playing on Sunday against the Miami, dolphins and he Had that high ankle sprain but pop finally some good news for the forty niners. But it's not all necessarily great news as where he hurt his teammate may not play. We'll see sort of still iffy one here. He has practice a little bit this week with that knee injury but the forty niners have depth in the backfield maybe conservative with their medical approach all season remember this is a team that has not just this week but also the rest of the season in mind. So, we'll see whether or not. We see where he most on Sunday and then finally Julio Jones for the Atlanta Falcons didn't that practice all week he's listed as questionable Laura, and although he has in the past played on Sundays after not practicing all during the week a little skeptical here in a maybe that he is active but is only used just in case there's a limited role but right now, not looking look layup and Julio Jones plays on Sunday for the desperate Oh. And Four Falcons? Yeah. They're taking on the panthers and they need a win in a big way. You see this this tweet here from Adam Schefter chargers placing Austin on injured reserve promoting tyron. Johnson into their active role signing former dolphins, jets running back. Keelan. Balaj to their practice squad. So an update their for that. Go ahead field if you had something to add to that I'm not sure if you did but that tweet popped up and I wasn't expecting it. So go ahead. Yeah Laura just as yeah I think this was expected from the chargers obviously with that hamstring injury that Austin suffered last week and As Adam noted, they have now added Kaelin blogs. We will not see Austin cler until at least week eight. But in the meantime you can expect a bunch of Joshua Kelly their fourth round pick out of UCLA and also Justin Jackson seventh round pick out of northwestern a couple of years ago. So the chargers who are now fully in on Justin Herbert will not have arguably their second best offensive player behind Allen on the field for at least the next three games. Yeah. That's important with Herbert probably meeting all the. Confidence he can get around him even though he's performed quite well so far. Thanks so much field gates for all of that information, and let's get to another big one. This weekend the chiefs are four over for the fourth consecutive year and thanks largely to that suddenly dominant defense, they have a chance to get a stranglehold of the AFC west five games into the season when they host the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday and all the talk about the chiefs as always about Patrick Mahomes in this dominant offense. But Marcus, the defense really has been quite good and we really saw that last week what do you WanNa see out of the chiefs against the Raiders Just continue where they're paying on defense listen. This is the part of the team that had me a little bit apprehensive about them going undefeated but we see the return of thornhill and tyrant Matthew Obviously, they played against the New England Patriots Without Chris Jones their best defensive lamb but Frank Clark stepped up this unit is starting to come together. They're starting to play at a very, very high level and I think. About the reached the point where we have to start talking about them with the rest of the top tier type defense as they continue to put performance together and I know what people say, Hey, man, it was brand against the New England patriots and I get it I. One, hundred percent agree. But when you look at what they were able to do against the Ravens, you look at what they were able to do last week they started to stream these type of games together and if that unit becomes top five, top ten, the we will be talking about an undefeated season. I throw already tough five statistically that's backed up by the way football outsiders. Da Metrics. My favorite way to look at efficiency considers down in distance chief passing attack unsurprisingly number one chiefs passing defense also number one despite the fact they've had no Bichon greeland despite the fact that Jerry seed was injured who played well early on shot Fenton has emerged one thornhill as emerged. We know about the honey badger, this is a well coached unit under Steve Spagnolo, and if they continue to play at this level I, don't know what you do against this team. You know what's crazy about this defense is you watch him in their never dominant right? We're used to seeing these great defenses that at times you can turn on film and they dominate dominate physically there times that teams can't move the ball at all they are really liked. The little they give little but then they make plays they've been rotating. Position, due to injury and people have held up out there. Obviously. tyrod Matthew is the main playmaker him make that play late late in the game with Julian drops the ball no Chris. Jones. Last week but they'll still able to get pressure but really look at this season and think about this city chiefs offense they haven't been the offense debt. You Go back to the Los Angeles chargers game where Patrick Mahomes struggled for three quarters ingested Herbert actually played. Well, this fits kept them in the game dairy sneak luxurious knee with a late interception and also Baltimore Ravens. They dominated Lamar Jackson off it's kept him out of the end zone where able to create pleasure played great in the past and so for me, this is a huge reason one why they wanNA super bowl last year and we don't really talk about it. And even this year, this start is largely due to the efficiency of the Kansas. City chiefs. Defense Steve Spagnuola is doing a great job with this coordinate coordination of the skill in the scheme of this team you know what's crazy guys the chiefs actually have four point seven chance to win out their schedule because that basically never happens but that's more than double the next closest team which happens to be the ravens but they have a one point nine percent chance to win. Already. Lost the chiefs. The week marks the sixth annual. Kpmg Women's PGA Championship at Iran Golf Club.

The colts and browns are both off the three in one starts and meet in week five Indianapolis brings the NFL's top defense and efficiency points, yards, and third down conversion percentage to Cleveland the will be without star Linebacker Darius Leonard the colts will look to slow down the browns league leading rushing attack and Kareem Hunt who takes over as Lee back for an injured Nick Chub and expect it to be a close one in this game ESPN's Football Power Index Gives the browns of fifty point three percent chance to win this one, the causes of any game week five, you can see our picks their. Meena. On the Browns, markets and Ryan both picking the colts. But everyone agrees that it will be close as you can see by the scores there. Let's dig into this one with smart lineup decisions informed by IBM Watson Meena you pick the browns how do you see this colts defense versus the browns offense matchup playing out? Well, this defense is legit. I want to say that I. Yes. They've played easy competition, but when you watch them. This unit coached by coordinator they have a very clear philosophy they don't blitz, they play a ton of zone and they limit explosive plays they keep everything in front of them. That's why on third down opposing quarterbacks have a passer rating of fourteen against them. This approach has apparently receives dated exurbia roads career, the rookie. Justin, blackmon. Jillian, black and part of me the safety has been phenomenal but I do think the browns can have success against them. Especially Darius Leonard Out. Do what you've been doing the last few weeks run the football, take what they give you underneath string together some slow methodical drives and I think if they take that approach, they can conquer this formidable defense. Yeah when you look at it this. Way that they've been playing though they're making sure that they give their offense an opportunity to not have to come back to not have to chase teams and it's allowing Philip rivers to play within himself. You go back to the first week of the season and it was Philip rivers around they lost Jacksonville Jaguars before because of turnovers now they've changed that they played this defense that sits back run silent silent with Dairies Lynn who will be out and then they run the football offensively the Cleveland browns they want to play this type of game they want to play this type of ball. Will they be able to creating office of explosive play against Indianapolis Colts that allows them to win this game I don't think they will I believe this is a close game I believe it comes down to the wire with the Indianapolis Colts will just edge out the Cleveland browns. The only thing that scares me is with Anthony Costanzo out this rush of the Cleveland Browns, can Maoz Gary, gets, Philip Rivers, and make it uncomfortable and creates turnovers because if he does that then that would allows the Cleveland Browns to stay in this game and maybe win it all right markets. So Ryan doesn't think. Plays will happen for Baker Mayfield in this Cleveland, browns offense. What do you think about Baker? He's putting a position after playing much better in the recent weeks to make a big play and win this game can't do it. I think he can lower but he has been playing probably as comfortable as any quarterback in the NFL the last few weeks, and that's not that's not a slight. That's really about our whale. This offensive line in this run game has been and they got going on some terrible defenses what I want to see and I think that makes a great point I want to see if Matt. Matt flew this plan. To, take the ball off the ground and force Baker. Mayfield, to beat the Indianapolis Colts if he can do that, you'll hear you'll hear me change my tomb because in order for this team to be a championship level team in order for this to go in and division and make a deep playoff run we all know at some point, your quarterback, the onus will be on your quarterback chemists the fast has been doing. A tremendous job putting Baker, Mayfield in very comfortable positions. He he's turned into a game manager as opposed to having to go win the game and there's nothing wrong with that because people take that the wrong way. But there will be times this season particularly when they play the Indianapolis Colts possibly he'll have to win the football game and I want to see if he can do. Yeah. If you're worried about Kareem Hunt. Taking over for Nick Chubb, there in Cleveland, you shouldn't be worried about it because this season Kareem Hunt averaging an NFL high three point one yards per carry after contact no other players averaging more than two point nine. We got some news here on NFL live right now coming from Adam schefter saying that the browns will also have tight end David who is it through made it through this week of practice healthy he's. Expected to be activated. So another weapon, for Baker, Mayfield Barron than some more news recently tweeted shefty saying that Jimmy G. is back the forty niners quarterback will start Sunday against the dolphins after missing the last two weeks. So we'll see if that's a shot in the arm for the forty niners as they continue to deal with. So many injuries, maybe they can get healthy and salvage their season in a very tough division. Here on NFL live following a two game slide. The effort of the cowboys has been the topic of conversation this week they host the Owen, four giant and former head coach Jason Garrett who will make his return to Jerry's world is oc for the demon. Take a listen to what cowboys hall of Famer Troy Aikman had to say about their recent play. To me. I'd be embarrassed as a player to to put that kind of performance on film that that's going to be seen by your peers for the rest of the season. It was just not very good players just simply didn't execute but yeah, that was that was pretty ugly and unless that changes, it doesn't really matter what you do from a scheme standpoint. you're going to have problems. All right. So the cowboys defense is off to a historically bad start this season, they've allowed one hundred and forty, six points, one, thousand, seven, hundred, twenty, two yards, and one hundred and one first downs. All of those as you might imagine, the worst that the team has ever allowed through four games in a season in franchise history the only good thing going. For the cowboys defense is they play the giants this week there averaging a League low eleven point eight points per game this season. So as our researcher Buggy said, it's bad on bad. So that might help at least a little bit Ryan. What do you see out of the cowboys? What do you want to see out of them after all the criticism this week? I think the one thing you. Boys is at least six days of the week. They aren't getting ran through by another opponent I think that's one thing because they don't play on those. Thing is when I watched the. Wash Dallas cowboys play I wonder what Marcus Spears is thinking I wonder what he's feeling like I. feel bad for my dog like I. Want to take them and say, Hey, man, it's right. Like how are you going to spend this? I want him to I wanted to ask him should I say anything to prop him up to make sure he's feeling good about himself while he watches this win Xavier Woods who I know personally by the way says. Seventy plays like you can't expect. NFL. Players to play hard for seventy plays the hell I can't. That's why you're out there and the reason that D. Lyman soap is because because they're bigger players because they paint every play can't go hard for seventy. So we get other people in the game for them when they're tired. So whenever you're out there, you're supposed to be all out to the ball. It's who the whistle is blown every single time and that's all I. Expect to see from the Dallas cowboys I don't care if they give a hundred because you use the hundred a lot. Of Times just now Laura and I don't even know what all that means four weeks but it seems like a hell of a lot. All I want to see them do is run to the ball be physical and hit period. If they score, they score this team has to send a message that liked the markets lower say they will not be solved because if they are solved, we're going to have to Miss Marcus Spears for the rest of the week because my boy is going to stress out and being hospital, and this is not the time to sit my dog to the hospital. Dallas cowboys be somebody totally different than you've been the first four weeks because what you been that ain't it. Sorry I'm sorry markets I get emotional when it comes to you mean. Motion Okay Buddy mark. You okay. Somebody come get me out of the sunken place I'm in the sunken place I'm into soccer. Get out here to cowboys I go to the sunken place. I'm falling in a black hole and I came nobody's throwing me a lifeline nobody trying to save me and I ran I think look I don't WanNa be confused about what he just said but I think he just tried to throw me a lifeline I. think my dog just said Look out for my boy because nobody else is looking out for him I. Know me longer than anybody and you still ain't throwing me damn lifeline about these cowboys. Show ESPN. I'm. About. The cowboys and I got players talking about you don't play off for seventy plays. Me Not even sending me the text in the group text that we have about a feel for you bro I need live lands from y'all now but let me cut game. Okay. Go here go here. Say A Lifeline Anthony Brown is coming back. Is Coming Back I. Don't know I got I, mean look I I. I'm not GonNa lie I would pay fifty dollars for a camera just on Marcus Spears during cowboys games. When the the field amazing business opportunity, I just want to throw that out there. Well. Marcus. Let me ask you something though because we were wondering about this when we didn't know for sure if Tyron Smith would be out now it turns out he is going to be out for the rest of the season. What does that do for the offense that has been quite good has been the only thing that Dallas cowboys fans and the team can really hang their hat on. Laura's no good and listen this. This is this is one of those situations. Now, where you see the leadership of Dag, Prescott, figuring things out between Kelham more Mike McCarthy when you don't have tyron Smith, how will they do this? How will they plan formations? How would they change offense based around this offensive line is now depleted Zack Martin is the only one left looney was injured is for. In a game in her themselves. So even a backup now you own on the next God the issue with the cowboys this defensively, they have scheme problem. They have the effort problem even though they don't say it but that is a correlation between possibly not knowing what to do, but also being in a bad situation and offensively when you lose Sarah Smith is everybody has the step up around them. Fall purposes minus the turnovers. This offense hasn't been doing a tremendous. They're only reason any hopes still survive apps for the Dallas cowboys, but that's a big loss for them especially in his backside. All right. Let me through your life ready. The cowboys have one, six, three games against the giants. Take it. That's your life. Why to. Pull you. Back. Metrics and matter it's mean I love it. All right and this from Tim McManus or Eagles reporter for ESPN winds will be without a couple of his weapons, Sunday Sean Jackson, and Alshon Jeffery both ruled out Sunday against the steelers markets. You heard me numbers what do you think we need to? Win to overcome this Pittsburgh fans. Laura added all all squared away. I said that Carson Wentz we need to be Superman. He needs to be down the marvel adventures characters. Be All. Love them in order to get this done without Jackson and without dreadfully obviously and had a. but when you look at the way, this Pittsburgh steelers defense plays. It's all about putting a quarterback in situations where everything looks like a thousand things coming at them at one time and that is Carson Wentz has been at his words obviously about MENA's. Breezing Taser right there. So when you think about Philly Games outmatched Carson. Wentz has been the best player on the football field. We go back to last year against Dallas. When Dallas was a better team, he was playing with zero receives that we knew he was the best player on the field he's going to have to do that again and so. Marcus I like I said presentation I did a powerpoint for y'all. Look it's not exist. Because I guarantee you that Pittsburgh Front, seven has been washing tape of Philly and their battered offensive line, and they are putting on bibs and pulling out their knives and forks because they are ready to. Now they're going to blitzen him like busy today you'll Jones in week one, I think is best chance to do with Jones did some success that first week uses legs which he has been doing over the last couple weeks and. Really, rely on the quick passing Game Boston, Scott Miles Sanders, get that ball out quickly. So you don't end up on your back because otherwise it's going to be a long night or day. Day or night either way it's going to be Long Ryan, how this steelers fence deal with the Eagles D. Line on the other side of this thing. Listen I mean it was way to a west coast right there because Pittsburgh we don't put on to eat office as we just go right outta man we eat with our hands man we listened and we make sure we kill. So that part ain't gonNA happen. But on the other side of the Big Ben, this is time for big bend to start making. Some place right. He hasn't necessarily played very well this year and there's some injuries in that Philadelphia Eagles Secondary. Obviously, they have a good rush. We saw them beat and battered mullen. We saw the beat and Batter Joe Borough but Big Ben is a guy who could hold up under the pressure but we thinking about Deontay Johnson Juju Smith Schuster play pool in. Washington on outside, they have to start getting some some things going with some of these wide receivers if they're going to compete with the Baltimore Ravens the Kansas City chiefs, and some of these teams we think will be atop the AFC, been rothlisberger has to be the Big Ben of old and we haven't seen that and what better week to get it going. Against a team who is struggling in the secondary was some of their personnel, the Pittsburgh steelers, the the Great Big Ben not this guy who's just been. Okay. Yeah. Meena he was kind of a in his words. Big Bend he's kind of getting on a roll a little bit there in the now has had to take a little bit more time off or. We'll see a better big been this week. I'm not really frankly because this eagles. Linus batter does their offense is the eagles defensive line, has been a strength. You saw that last week they went out and won that Game San Francisco for them then has not been good throwing deep I think is playmakers is Ryan pointed out have done a lot of work for him. So actually wouldn't be surprised if you see a similar game plan on the other side of the ball where he's trying to get the ball out quickly and into space guys, let's all put on our bibs real fast. However when would do it? Easily Right now weird anyway. One more thing before we go Ryan you get to start. Listen. One more thing is about Desha Watson in Houston Texans team listen we know that Bill Brian didn't necessarily set the table for you to be successful, but he's gone now Romeo Cornell is at the hill. It's time for dissolve Watson to take a hold of this team be the leader that it needs more. Importantly be the player that they need. They need this win this week if they have any hopes of this season being anything positive Shawn Watson. So He who you are. Bruce Integrated Kenya get stuff together. Man Everybody thought that this was the most complete team that's offense was don't be something magic can you to people get on the same page and we can see it for Tom Brady win the super bowl with another. Bill. Take. down. He didn't know it was for now. Figure it out. I'm not one prayer candle for Carson. Winston other for Joe Burrow because his offensive line against Baltimore Defensive Line. Mismatch I expect to see A. Game a lot of empty please please Joe Borough. Please I know we all worry about him. All right, Green Bay packers linebacker Berks was named week for NFL. PA.

Thanks to Football guys world and and ROB For Tonight's rundown this is semi breaking news tonight Be It popped out this afternoon And and I want to discuss it a little bit because this is GonNa take care of part of our final segment of the show with the running backs and that's Austin accurate. We're GONNA talk about him at the top of the show. The chargers have inked him to a four year. Twenty four and a half million dollar deal that includes fifteen million dollars. Guaranteed according to Adam. Schefters tweet Obviously this makes Austin cler the rb one for the chargers there any chance that Melvin Gordon had coming back it's by by I remember four eight yards per carry in three seasons with the chargers but ninety two of one hundred eight targets ninety two catches over one hundred and eight targets for nine hundred ninety three yards and eight scores just last year alone. That's nine point two yards per target. It's insane Dave Austin only twenty four years old. He's scheduled to become a free agent after the twenty twenty three season F. FCC BEST. Bowlers are taking them at the two. Oh nine right now dare. I say it's too low. It seems so that's about right late. Second round for you mid to late. Second to me at least Middle you know. It's weird how much higher jump up. Well Okay let's talk about this year for a second and with a with let's do a would you rather here with Who's The quarterback on the team? Well that's up for debate because allegedly there is conflicting reports. This week that they're trying to train. Nick foles that they're either going to move forward with garments. You and Trade Nick foles or falls is going to be the guy so we don't exactly know yet. Okay that's what we're looking at. Let's play would you rather thought? Would you rather get a massage from a man or surgery from a female doctor? Would YOU HAVE SEX WITH CLEVELAND? If it meant you could have sex with Angelina. Jolie who would you rather do? What were you guys rather be for? Would you rather status small business with? Who would you rather have sex? Do on breakfast or would you rather chew on your behalf? Usually actor session yeah. Let's go back to it nick. Foles in Gardner Menchu. Yeah on the Charter. Oh I'm sorry I I mean idiot I could hold on. I wonder if for Netflix. He plays for the chargers We don't know who the charges right. Now it's tyrod Taylor. I was looking at the I would you rather which is Leonard Fournette. Which is why got four net in my mind so It's tyrod Taylor as of right now. It seems like Philip. Rivers is by by We we don't see him Going over there it could be. I mean it kind of depends upon where Brady goes we. We gotTA figure we're all these quarterback domino's they're gonNA fall and I think he's the first one so you'll have somebody pretty decent. There's quarterbacks out there right okay all right so let's start off with the. Would you rather here Day would you rather have Austin actor or Leonard Fournette Cooler I agree Austin cler miles sanders you know. I don't know if this'll be controversial. Ever take because I just still think philly's going to use more than running back a lot. I don't think that's controversial. All to the point where. I'm actually agreeing with you. I think it's Ecuador over Sanders Austin necklace or Josh Jacobs Yeah I'M GONNA say jakup's if that's reminded I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. I'll stick with Ecuador. Okay let's go even Higher Austin or Nick Chubb. That's pretty close to you. Know the funny thing is I actually think there's a better chance outscores chug because of the PBR potential. Yeah I'll take trouble because you just have the real consistency and he carries. But you know it's pretty close. That's where I'm at too. I would rather have trump but trump is going full round ahead of Ecuador so actually representative One eleven okay. So there you go Let's go the other way Austin Kenyan Drake Echo. I agree extra free agent. He's she we understand. How Austin Melvin Gordon Sign agreed Austin necklace or Todd Gurley? And we'll leave it at that. Yeah I agree there. I think you're right. I think that I think is gonNA climb. I think to nine to low. He's going as the running back thirteen. I think after I'm that much so really well. I mean there are thirty. Yeah because someone running back score early right. I mean you're looking at the elites. Obviously go ahead of McCaffrey. Barclay Elliott Cook Kamera. Then you get into mix and Henry Aaron Jones Nick Chubb then Jacobs then four net sanders. If it's interesting. I think he can climb a little bit. I don't think he's You know some of the scuttled button to chat room is is saying that. Acura is going to be a first round pick. I don't deny that I I think he might be. I don't think I would take them in the first round but I do think he's GonNa go higher than the two. Oh nine especially as we move forward. I could see at once the quarterback situation. It's ironed out a little. Let's see how that that's a good point? Yeah I mean well I mean look what he did. Last year with rivers. The quarterback rivers is a good quarterback for running backs. You shop put the ball like nine yards which is exactly the size out. He would run. Okay well you can have a better quarterback they're not they would not throw a tackler as much then correct. Yeah you you you don't really you know. I mean you just don't know if that quarterback is going it's harder running back to you know the play call for it. Maybe the quarterback terrel. Maybe this tyrod Taylor. Maybe starts running all the time. Yeah when things change things can get better. Things got worse and since things were so good last year with him and he was so productive. Odds aren't terribly bad that they could get a little bit worse. The different quarterback who would be a worse choice for actors. Fantasy value caller. No no hold on Tyrod Taylor or Jameis Winston worse situation for Soli. Recollect I think Taylor. Even though you're probably might disagree with you. I mean we're shameless. Doesn't seem to throw much to running back. That's that's my point. He's always pumping it down the field. So I don't know man you either either one of those but Yeah I don't think yeah I don't think either one would be good arpita foce Checking into the chiming and the chatrooms saying not to. We know who the quarterback and I think you're right so we'll move on from there but certainly good news if you're Austin Ecuador today especially if you're Austin Wallet. Well maybe not because it's going to get more crowded in their decay. Que Pittsburgh Sports. Dale lally is reporting that the steelers intent on keeping Vance McDonald for this coming year. He has a club option. Where seven point. One to seven million dollars against the salary cap twenty nine years old and obviously he had a rough season last year because Mason Rudolph throwing him the ball by and large and he was gone wrong he was he was yeah. I mean obviously as always thirty eight for two seventy three and three touchdowns last year but in twenty eighteen fifty catches six hundred ten yards and four touchdowns. He is probably going to be underrated. Guy Given you know the situation the the injury and everything like that in f F. PC Drass right now you can get them in the fifteenth round is twenty six Tight end off the board. That's that's great in that spot. That's it really is deal at best. Buy Fifty six last year. Yeah basing all this is like you're you're older guy pulls type sleeper mean you know he was an old guy that got moved You Know Big van. He's GonNa be healthy. Finally put it all the other any didn't know any tiny probably once again I mean 'cause something will befall him as always but in the fifteenth round who gives a crap. There's a there's a shot he could actually get it on. Put it all together. Yeah I mean you're going around guys like will disley Dawson Knox as far as tight go IRV Smith is going around there. Kyle Rudolph J Sternberg. Actually I do like j Sternberg quite a bit but I'd still take Vance McDonald ahead of them. Actually no I take that back. I don't know who takes their. I Love Jason Burger this year. She never gives me a lot of my teams. I should be trained for the name. I'll give you that one. That is a good name for sure. ESPN's Matthew. Berry was talking to Raiders General Manager. Mike mayock at the combine. He said May. I said that he expects Josh Jacobs to be heavily involved in the passing game next season. May I call it phase two for Josh Jacobs career? Twenty two years old and obviously last year was was kind of a disappointment. I I to put my only twenty seven total targets which is only to a game on average. That's forty second overall at the running back position now if you remember last month. The raiders also resigned. Jalen Rashard a two year deal but they let the Washington of find out what his value is in free agency. But Dave Josh shake-ups is GonNa be catching more passes this year. I mean I'm all on board with that we're He finished I. Just a as a precursor. Josh Jacobs finished as running back eighteen last year. And that's with him missing time and not catching passes and he is going right now. I think we just alluded to it when we were talking about actor Going at the two zero two as running back ten. Now you know I was ready to say that's a good value. That might be a ceiling. Right now is the is that one to turn as the tenth running back off the board it might be you and but I can see him climbing into the first round of someone likes and they WanNa make sure they get them and so the turn guy getting him I I like the argument and you know when the GM says it a lot of times you have this GM. Talk me extra. Seems like why would he why I mean strikes me as a? I'm afraid frank type guy. Yeah so there's no reason for him to lie. Really I think actually logically makes a Lotta Sense. Jacobs's probably one of the best playmakers if not the best playmaker on the team down trying to run the ball as much as you can So that actually does make a difference for me really how it does. Make me feel really. I would feel really safe by taking Josh. As it was to be honest I mean wh what are you going wrong? Other than be impossible not scoring points. You could actually go at that one. I mean you can't always do this but a of times that one to turn you could go. If you WANNA go running back running back. He'd go Chubb Jacobs. You WanNA receive a running back Andre Hopkins Josh shake-ups you WanNa go running back tight end. Josh Jacobs George kill either way All three of those ways hell of a way to start off your F F. PC drafts This season we have Brent studebaker coming up in just a couple of minutes to talk about his twelve fifty number three EPA PC dynasty victory a couple of other things. I want to get to before we get to Brent Combine interview with Matthew Berry from Espn Ron Rivera. The redskins head coach says he expects series guys Adrian Peterson and Bryce love to all have a role this coming season last year. If you remember guys forty two carries two hundred fifty four yards and two touchdowns. Five point three yards per carry in just five games Certainly was great to see but again he's been dealing some pretty significant injuries. The last couple of years. He's twenty two years old. I think Adrian Peterson is seventy two years old. He's still looks great. And now you're Bryce love who they took in day three last year. A guy who has ballyhooed is a first round pick. He had he come out after his junior season at Stanford gets into the knee problems and then he falls today. Three of the draft. Is this a situation to avoid? Is there a is there any fantasy goodness To mine here among any of those three running backs as far as F. FCC best balls are concerned. Yeah you know I'm not. I'm not really interesting in in them. And Classic Me Events Format Suffer Bryce log. Maybe super late. I can see trying to pair guys. With Lov I I'm kind of avoiding Adrian Peterson. He's now just old eighteen. O five in basketball's still staying away. No I mean that's so it is late Again when when when's guys coming like ninth round seven to to me that's early for? He's been so often I wouldn't have a problem. Taking Peterson super late. And then love even later twenty three. Oh three yeah taking those two guys and taking it in just all your betting on is that guys gets hurt again. And that's not a bad but it's you would have won that bet the last two years so that makes sense. Yeah that's not bad. You're kind of you're almost locking down a backfield at that point not investing until the Eighteenth Brown which is pretty crazy again that that's pending dependent upon geiss injury. But it's been a pretty safe bet the last couple of years I'm avoiding in general. I think you're you're talking about if we talk about F. FCC main event stuff like that. I'm not I'm not really interested in. Hopefully you've got meet vents. Hopefully we've got that running back situation short long you're thinking about the redskins and someone else's is making those decisions for their teams jets are trying to short their wide receiver situation. Apparently Robbie Anderson's still remains in their off season plans. The jets are making efforts to resign him. According to a source Today Anders. Excuse me yesterday. Anderson's GonNa make a lot of money if he does indeed get two free agency looking that he's going to get that way. Maybe as much as fifteen million dollars year Dave Robbie Andersen back with the jets. Are you rooting for that? As as far as catching passes from Sam Darnold or are you willing to roll the dice sake There's a better situation for Bobby Anderson out there you know you think about this guy too. He's a deep threat. Doesn't run the row tree all that well but certainly one of the best one of the better free agent receivers out there this year. I mean I want them at one time maybe two. I kinda wish I wouldn't mind if you switch situations. It seems like all they do is throw bombs. He doesn't really mean he doesn't really put up. Numbers worth ever starting. So if you move on to a different team. And he's so good they make fifteen million dollars a year please someone else sign them and use them in a different way. New England perhaps a New England's on always a receiver waistline except for element. That's because they don't ever see Robbie Anderson's comes first the chicken or the Yeah now we're into that theory One last thing I want to get to before Brent studebaker comes on and talk about his dynasty championship. Jonathan Taylor is GONNA be overdrafted. After his strong showing at the combine according to one pro football focus analysts. You so confident. He didn't put his name out there. Well I again. This is the report I got. Maybe he did. I just didn't get the guy's name in this report so Taylor already Y was slated to go Probably no later than the early second but each I as safe as you can be the running back Saying he's going to be a first round pick. That's where Taylor is. That is obvious competing with the Andrea Swift and J K Dobbins to be the first running back off the board. But they've you know you look at what Jonathan Taylor did it Wisconsin. It was awesome He caught a lot of passes his junior season. Something we hadn't seen as I two years For the badgers and then he blazed a four three nine at the combine one of the fastest times for any running back and the fact that he did it at whatever. It was two hundred twenty seven pounds very impressive. It's I think we're picking nits if we're trying to find holes and Jonathan Taylor game right now because he looks pretty well rounded. I agree with you. I wouldn't say we. Just let's classify that gentleman all by himself. I liked Jonathan Taylor. I think he's a great pick. I think he's a surefire. WanNa one for most really in dynasty dress over swift. Well I mean. It's it's easy to say that now but yeah I mean I. I don't see you like them significantly. Better than swift at Dobbins. Yeah I would say so Dobbins when you look at the productive productions amazing the speed is was outstanding right. I I'm not finding any flaws in this game. I mean he's a he's got the size to twenty seven. That's that's exactly where you want to know. I guess I'm with you right now. It's it's tough to to disagree. Dobbins did not work out at the combine Swift didn't run all that good old although he ran fairly well So we'll see what happens there. I think those three running backs have still separated themselves. Although maybe there's a fourth one Into your number one. We're GONNA talk to our guest About that and much more. I WANNA bring him in right now. He is a lover of all first-round rookie draft picks and is one of the elite members of the F. FCC twenty sixers who of course set the ADP he's coming off a championship and the F. Fcc Twelve fifteen number three dynasty lead. Please welcome into the show. Mr Brent Studebaker Brent. Thanks so much for hopping on with us this week. You didn't guys. Thanks for having Me Ball Game Day. We are doing good. We're doing good. This is exciting to have you on Following in the footsteps of of your older brother which we're going to get to In a little bit Certainly you know because his appearance on this show previously Brett Win You're not dominating. Ftc Dynasty Leagues. And as well as being one of uh the illustrious twenty sixers what are you doing for a living I knew painting Bodywork and painless dent repair for the number one used car dealership in the United States. I mean so even when it's not fantasy football he's still working with the best team. I was just crazy off the illustrious elite talent we have coming on the show Weakened weak out certainly awesome Pretty close by my my daughter. She turned sixteen soon and she wants to murder out the car we got. Oh Yeah you get it all powder coated and all that crap. I don't know how to do any of that right. Obviously any recommendations right. Yes we get the word out more than you should just buy a new one. Well you know I don't WanNa talk about all right so that certainly it's it's a nice. It's better than it should be. She's very nice lady. And get good grades so congratulations. Congratulations to Brent. As well an idea about rape performance last season yes. You're actually so let's talk about you instead of my kid Twelve fifty number three league or the champ. You took five players in the first round of the rookie draft in twenty nineteen. How did YOU Get a hold of Hannah. How do we get over him to renew this league by the way? How did you get all those cooks? And then you still had a team that ended up winning the league last year. Well you win and lose some some deals until grafting like prior to Patrick Mahomes the name named the starter in Kansas City. All season I traded Moons Chris Godwin Roggio and I got back Portland Sutton to twenty nineteen one. I'd turned that into Mouth Sanders and depot right up about I saw a big difference And the QUARTERBACK CC Scorned format is very minimal. I want more of a chance at the skill positions wide receiver running back and all my rookie draft and then another deal Prior to the season starting last year I I traded someone. Devin funchess sterling shepherd and three threes and that turned me into Mikhael Harry TJ Hawking Sin and Miko Hardiman You know I up flipping some players after during the draft. I got traded I got Kerryon Johnson from the kill Harry For from earner right before Johnson got hurt which ultimately it hurt me. But I had the definitely but looking at trade most importantly you can't be afraid to trade valuable asset if you can get the right value in return and I love all the positions that could be in during the draft last year so I wanted to all the ones I could get. But that's so but this is true of all. Your guns believes that that you're always trying to write bread. You're always trying to get as many first round picks is you can T to snare that elite talent on the cusp of you know before they really break out in the NFL. Yeah Actually I. I bought a orphan About a month ago and already have three twenty twenty one I I WanNa stockpile them like especially on it worth and team I want to I WANNA make it my own and and stockpiling anyone's as possible. You can do a lot of damage out of trade deadline with Future one Brent. Studebaker is our guest tonight. The twelve fifty F. FCC dynasty number three champion. Let's talk about a trade that you had recently made one year dynasty leagues. And that was Where you gave up Christian McCaffrey and Keenan Allen. You get back Odell Beckham. Josh Jacobs and Melvin. Gordon and I can't remember refresh my memory. Exactly when that deal was done Can you tell us also your thought process and why you decided that was the right? Move to make And then deal shortly after when trading opened up this off season To me it goes back to train the valuable asset I needed on that team I finished third hour relied on McCaffrey. Way Too much Worries about me with him. Is he going to be able to sustain his production He how can I put it? Stunk obese told me He's a fellow twenty six or that I shouldn't you? Shouldn't he's almost untradable to get back. Odell Beckham Andros Jacobs. They're they're my two biggest Baas this off season I Love Beckham Beckham's and asset for any any team He had one bad year. Cleveland had a bad year Baker. May did it wasn't just Beckham. And then Josh Jacobs I mean. He had a one hundred yards seven touchdowns and he didn't even talk about twenty times last year they're going to getting the ball might may already came out and said they wanted to catch the ball. Some more those are my two core pieces of getting that trade it gave me Another number one receiver appear with Martin Luther and also Josh Jacob And then Keenan Allen's a big sell for me he I heard y'all in earlier in the show talking about quarterback. I don't any player that tyrod Taylor could potentially be throwing them onto He's getting up there. I think it's twenty six twenty seven now I just I I wanted to sell. I wanted to throw him as quickly as I could. This off season and then I got Melvin Gordon too. I Love Getting Gordon and the trade. I understand he didn't have a good year. He didn't do any training camp at all but to me. He's probably the number one free agent back this off season. I hope he goes to the Texan But I mean you never know but I'm going to trust this talent and know that he's going to be a three down back. Yeah I I don't I mean I listen you're way SMARTER ABOUT DYNASTY THAN THAN THAN. I am Definitely Brent But I don't know if I would have had it in me to trade. Mccaffrey and I get. You're coming from and quite frankly after the season might look like a genius. Move Dave what do you think about this deal that that went down? Mccaffrey and Keenan Allen. Get Back Beckham. Jacobs and then. Melvin Gordon I you know I. I am of the opinion that McCaffrey is pretty much untradable. IF YOU TAKE. Josh shake production from last year. And double it. And then they added seventy five more points. You Equal Christian McCaffrey production. I mean twenty years twenty nine and a half points a game right. It's okay. Well that's a one off. Well no it's not the year before he was something I just. That's just what he's so-called so far been doing that at all but is there something to be for this specific team where bret needed to build some depth? And he's he's giving up to starters but he's getting an extra starter back where you can ask him that question you talk you know common. Then you interrupt. I understand that footprint already said that's that's why he decided to do it. Okay a Bren. You'RE GONNA say go ahead if you if you look at. I listen to that someone. Would Chad Parson the peak age for wide receivers twenty five to thirty. That's their peak age for their fantasy productions Prior to that back them is how averages the most points Per Game over Randy Moss Jerry. Rice like up until twenty five back and we'll get back if he stays away from You know boned and going out of the country with women and the bear. He'll be He'll be fine. Okay if you know those things yeah well if he does. Well he might. I mean who knows that hardly possible. Well he's doing that Christian. Mccaffrey ironing. Yeah I don't know if you had to get athlete already had the panthers trade. They're all pro. What was it left tackle trae Turner for Russell? I mean I I and I don't know if I'm correct about this believing. Mccaffrey will be a free agent next year and there's already been rumblings about him wanting to go play in. Denver. I don't know how much longer we're here. Live in be in Carolina Cam. Probably he may or may not be there. But it goes back to having a rookie quarterback rookie head coach. I'd rather go with Jacobs back them and Gordon. If you don't that's why we all run our own teams and you make some sense there. I like I said I respectfully disagree. But that's all right. So let's talk about different running backs Instead of these shrimp guys too big is Derrick. Henry and Leonard. Fournette both had great seasons last year. Have you given any thoughts of selling high on them? After they had really good years. I've sent an offer out to every league mate in twelve fifty. Three and no one is biting I I value each one of them between four and seven I'm not getting anything in return. I'm not GonNa give them away for net only had three touchdowns last year. I think that goes up. I think also having becoming a free agent after next year is going to help him. And then Derrick Henry. I'll just try to him right before. the trade deadline because he always goes off into the season. And I can Mac value and get some one for him. If I have to book you do what do you know where Leonard Fournette? Cps I sure do It's actually Go He's going right now on this second Two Oh six so right in the mid second as the eleventh running back off the border. And what's interesting is we have. We've been listening all these dynasty orphans and so on and it just seems to me like I've listed a lot of four net orphans. Yeah like a lot of people are getting you know selling or giving up on teams before that and You know I can see the argument for trading but I also and I've never been accused person but I you know he had a really good year. Yeah he's still young prime. He's what he's a huge guy. And you see some of those great runs. He has just like Henry had in. Those guys are both really only miss. You know I think a Lotta people dinged them for you. Know you always had these ankle issues. Ever since he came out Lsu and you really fought through that last year. He didn't deal with it at all really shook and he caught a lot of passes last year. How many times have I been on this show and I said I am just waiting for Leonard Fournette to have a big game so I can trade them that Gridiron Legends League? That I'm with you. I'm going down with the ship now with a might as well just keep I am. Yeah totally on board with that wonderful. It is not for sale. Well that's won't change anything from the non responses. I'm getting from trade offers which is fine. I I totally get it But but I'll roll that way with him and and we'll see what happens going forward. I WanNa talk as fun as it is the talk about dynasty veterans. I think it's more fun to talk. Look he's especially since we're what less less than two months from the draft coming up on a month? A half to the draft Clyde Edwards Hilar-. Let's talk about him Brent he had a breakout season with Lsu last year fifty five catches for the Bayou bengals. Are you putting him in the same tears? Jonathan Taylor the Andrea Swift. Jk Dobbins right now or is he comfortably in in the tube low that I think I think he's material below that I think the one employer that potentially is even higher than Edwards is camakers Klein I I like him but his feet work his feet. In the whole he stutters a lot. I would rather have camakers and quite Edwards camakers to isn't a younger. I feel like he's a year younger and and The really yet online too. I think he's the youngest running back in the in the class this year I remember. He came in to Florida state. As as I think he was an early in Rowley Was One of the younger players to come into college and then obviously leaving early After his junior season At Florida State. Where early and really. Yeah early in Rowley. Must've gotten like a seventeen hundred ninety four. Why are you? Don't understand the head for Florida? There's no reason to bring it up. Never Tuning Yeah. Congratulations all right there. But but But that guy he got no and I think I brought this up on the show before he got no help from one of the worst offensive lines in Florida state history. You know the last two years he was there Still put up numbers but he basically created all himself did great on the bench. The great in the three cone put up a great forty time. I think he's GonNa be really good. So would you put acres as your number four running? Back in this class then Brent. Yeah but I would probably even have him higher in the Dobbins Hager's Renoir four four seven. He catches the ball strong own. Pass protection I like back back. That are going to be on the field three down. And I don't know Dobbins will be three down back in the League camakers. He reminds me a lot Kareem Hunt Coming out he's he's going unnoticed behind these the top four than they say and I think he's GonNa Sprout a lot of people. The ones that I saw it on twitter and then I lost the graphic but He came acres average one yard per carry before context and the other three point. Nine yards four point nine nine per carrier after contract. That's bad offensive of lying. I mean it was a historic. I mean I can't see. I mean the the quarterback got massacred there the running back. It didn't matter who the Florida state at one point in the last two years had three five star running back on the team could not do anything with them. 'cause they had you know. Barton Lou from the gas station blocking for these guys. It was terrible. I don't understand how you don't get good around. She could offensive lineman. You know what I have a theory on this island Wisconsin. Yeah exactly yeah the the the getty. It cornfed offensive. Lineman Dave Rick Trickett was a longtime offensive line coach for Florida. State Came over from West Virginia and When Bobby Bowden left he stayed under Jimbo Fisher for a year or two at Florida state and he was great. Everybody talked about how much they loved him and everything he left and on the way it went way way down the whole team. The whole program went way. Way Down and I again I don't think that was the whole thing but I think that was a big part of it in any event. We don't want to turn this into the Florida state or go ahead all right. So let's talk about rookie wide Twenty fourteen classes historic Sammy Watkins himself. But Mike Evans have got Davante. Adams Jerk Landry Odell Beckham The aforementioned player and Ellen Robinson. They're all from twenty fourteen. We might even be missing a few. Oh there's much there's many many more So what do you think of this year? Is this year's class. Rookies is really hyped up. Do you think it's anywhere close to twenty four teams I think twenty four teams draft class. You had a lot. More number one This year you got more depth In the top forty there's on these wide receivers and then I think that depending on landing spots you got your Judy. You got lamb until I see it. It's really lucky. We were lucky in that time to have Beckham. Go play with That was that was big You had Evans. Even though you had to wait a year he played with James Davante. Adams went rogers landing spot. A LOTTA MOCKS. Have like lamb and judy going to oakland the jets. We'll see how good they it turns out. I think potentially it does. But until I can't say that this is going to be better At the top but I think all around there there are a lot deeper and we'll be a lot they'll be a lot more guys you can get later in the second and third round Compared to the twenty four team draft but is henry rugs simply a speed merchant. Is he just going to be a burner and the NFL or is there something more there because he should be going in the first round? And I think a lot of people say that he is going to be a a great receiver but on the flip side of the coin There's many other out there others out there. Many dynasty pundits That would say that That he is just going to be a speed guy. How do you fall in on that? I like him. I mean he can stretch the field. I mean with his forty yard dash this year. It's unbelievable you put him in quarterback with a quarterback that can throw the ball and throw. It has time he's GonNa blow by any defense he's like Tari kill. I mean The that catches is when we get on the field and I think he's going to do a lot of damage this year. Brent studebaker the twelve fifty F. FCC dynasty number three league champion joining us on the high stakes fantasy football hour tonight and follow him on twitter at be a studebaker. How about the combine this year? Did anybody's performance there. Brent change your mind drastically whether it was somebody who did really really good better than expected or maybe did not perform up to snuff. Did you change your opinion on any players based on what you saw in Indianapolis actually have two guys and the first guy? You'll be happy 'cause you're GonNa Win Twenty Five Justin Jefferson. He's going to be a phone now from from four four three round. He was tied for eighth in the class. FOR RECEIVERS. I think him. Run and that speed solidified Him becoming a first rounder. But the big guys looking at And I started noticing about the senior bowl with Denzel minimums at Baylor. He's and hearing a four point three eight which is third best and he had the best Turned DRILL At from any receiver at the combine He's physical he's big and he can catch the ball so he's one that is gonNA probably rows up board come draft day. I think you'll be a in could be a late first round or early second round. Pick and all working drafts. What blows my mind about Denzel? Mims is we've already talked about how loaded the wide receiver classes and how deep it is and and the fact that this guy before the combine and and really I guess before the senior bowl was being is a day three pick you know around four around five type guy and now all of a sudden you you see Max out there with him going up shooting all the way up into the first round you know the the athleticism not in question the size not in question really the performance Not In question either. So I think there's a lot of about mims and it'll be fascinating to see where he goes especially in relation to some of the other Receivers in this draft as well When when we get down to it this this is what happens this time of year. You know every single year I. I can't wait for the draft to get here. Can't get here soon enough. Dave and it's it's GonNa be a lot of fun this year for Dynasty to. I think the rookie drafts. It's going to be so insanely Entertaining Yeah You have a question number eight. No you don't. Oh yeah okay. That's fine You know. Similar to Melvin Gordon Austin Atler. Who's a better running back right? Who's better Fantasy football player you or your brother. Brian. I'M GONNA get smoked by my twenty six years but Brian One six times more than me in the last two years He's unbelievable I go to him in my twenty six for everything would bill He knows his stuff. like no other. He can turn a trade and get he can. He can turn train anybody and get a first round pick. It doesn't matter if you're trading. Let me what he can get a one He's good at what he does. He's been he's been doing the dynasty longer but I give him the nod. He's better but he doesn't. He's not the reigning champion. Twelve fifty. Three I a twenty th right. That's right yeah I got. You beat him last year Brent do you guys Do you and Brian Do you ever team up in any leaks together. You always simply competing against each other. We actually got to that. We cooperate together. I'll let him do most of the work in that league Our night shift. So I can't i. I'm not on as much as I'd like to be during the day time. That's when you get a lot of trades together. It's two fifty six to fifty number thirty two two small league but that's the only ones we play in together like thome and then we have got three that we don't get so do you guys are interesting. Because you know for people who team up in Redraft League's best Main events or football guys or what have you There's always the you know. Sometimes you bought heads but it's just usually with draft choices for you know during the draft and then you know waiver bids and and And lineup decisions but when you're talking about acquiring players again until you until you trade them and move them. They are yours for the duration of their careers. Do you guys often bought heads player evaluation on on how you decide who you're gonNA take and rookie draft. How do you guys work that out? Come we'll come up with a list together. outside of You know I have my personal list for my own leagues. And then we'll look at each team and see where where we WANNA go And you know we'll come to a common ground when it comes to those two teams and it might not be the same as my as my what I think But we both trust each other When it comes to drafting and which rookie we made you know if if if we had one one this year. I believe Brian the Jonathan Taylor got the two so but we don't have the one at one of them so we don't have to worry about that this year I would. I would personally won't until until if you guys have the one or two in any leagues and Dobbins goes at one. Oh one you have conundrum very true. And then we order he he usually he usually wins. I mean he'll he'll he'll he'll pull his help police away it on me and I can't fight him because he's he's won a lot more than I have. Well there's only one way to remedy that my friend and after that twelve fifty number three victory over him last year. Certainly you are in the pathway to doing just that Brent. We have probably emails here. I want to read to you Just to get your opinion For who wrote in Bruce in Westminster Colorado writes? Hey Brent how do you like to balance your roster in terms of how many players you keep it each position with at each position with the Short F F? Pc rosters at cut down. Thank you for the email Bruce in Westminster Colorado. So I've seen you gotta keep at least You know a starting lineup Their brand but as far as cut downs are limited to the earlier. You're sort of loading up at running backs receivers and tight ends as much as possible right. Yeah and when it comes to that I'll try to only keep two tied in on any any roster but I won't all the running backs and receivers I would rather trade like I. I've I've tried Dallas daughter for one in a league and I don't. I didn't necessarily want to get rid of him but he was. The Guy was going to have to cut so running backs and receivers for me or or the. Golden Ticket All My team moving onto Dan in San Jose. Are there any players in the league who are coming off a good season that would make sense to try and deal in dynasty right now congrats on the Dino win? Thank you for the email Dan in San Jose. I guess this isn't really speaking any anybody that you necessarily have to own but anybody that you can think of that. That had a really good. Twenty nineteen Brent that you would think about dealing right now in dynasty I would trade kit or if you could I mean with his age I you can get a lot for him. Don't get me. Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't trade him for Nichols I would try and get you could probably get two first round. Picks this year for kid on F. F. B. C. and turnaround. I mean he's getting turn turn around and get more skilled asset I try to trade that a year too early rather than wait. 'cause then if you wait you're not gonNA get anything for him hats. I'm stuck with Levy. I'm a League and David Dotson. I didn't I didn't trade 'EM Say Look for look for trading your vets a year. Too early all right. That's good advice. I keep I keep going back and forth on that sometime. I think that's right. Move and then other times I say you know. I'M GONNA have Leonard Fournette. Kelly turns forty. Keep hines ward until he retires? You know what I mean. It's one of those. I never know which way to go on that. It's it's but it's a finesse thing. It's it's an art dave. I kind of think superstar achievers Entire downs I to those guys lasts longer. They really do than running back so anyway. That's pretty obvious last question. Who's a rookie that you think is going to be a bust in the NFL? And they sweep rookie targeting your dynasty rookie draft. You can't mention Jefferson or mims please. This is gonNA sound like I'm from South Carolina but a bust is T- hitting I mean. This is a loaded wide receiver class. He didn't work out. He didn't do anything and he wasn't to me even the best receiver on his team. Justin Ross was. I'm staying away from t higgins Another twenty six or Salvador. I know he's real big on. T. Hugging I'll gladly pass him up and take them before him or any of the other gods That we spoke about Jefferson. I just I'm not big owning this year lever is. Yeah the sleeper. He wasn't combine because he broke his foot but Brian Edwards Last year coming in to the draft this off season. He was a top three dynasty dynasty wide receiver In this class he had a bad quarterback play But I'm I'm keying Brian Edwards in the two point one two point one or two point five and I'll be happy to getting could correct me if I'm wrong brand is is Brian every kid. He's a South Carolina Guy Right. Yup Brian Edwards. He played in South Carolina Big Tall physical receiver goes up catches the ball I like him I. I'm glad he was not at the combine because he would skyrocket back up and and the draft this year. Yeah Yeah No. You're you're you're probably right. I mean a lot of a lot of times. They indeed happened. Perform well in front of everyone and everybody seems to get on your just like you did tonight. Perform well on the high stakes. Fantasy football or Brent. Studebaker the twelve fifty number three dynasty champion a beloved twenty six or and Certainly we appreciate you coming on the program tonight Brandt Always appreciate your insight. Good luck all your leagues this year and enjoy those rookie drafts. That are coming up soon. Logging Day thank you. Thank you for having me appreciation day. Care have a great weekend better interview. With your questions. Worse Brent Brent studebaker you follow him on twitter at BA studebaker And then you compete against them in the F. FCC Dynasty Leagues. I believe he's also in Genesis. If I'm if I'm I should ask them that before before. He bounced out. But I think he's in Genesis. And we're going to be covering the genesis revelations and Armageddon drafts all live right here on these airwaves coming up about two months from now right. Roughly a little over two months Little under a little under two months little under two months. So I think you're right. I think it is little wonder So that'll be coming up. That'll be fun. let's SORTA like the unofficial. We have like fifteen unofficial kickoff to the season I think we're through like four of 'em that's number nine. Eighty Eighty P set by To Packer so excited well. No Th to the twenty sixers at the ADP. Dave I think packer packer. Yeah and then And then all of a sudden revelations became this cavalcade of of ranchos and then genesis was They're the ones that that really established the the ADP now. I'm sure to packer. Have something to say about that. When we cover the revelations drafts live coming up shortly but that is all neither here nor there. Let's talk about how the running backs finished last year. We're not GonNa talk about Austin Anymore Day because we talked about him about on top of the show but the guy that finished number two among running backs last year bit of a surprise given that he was basically a third sometimes even fourth round pick shot way way up with the Green Bay packers Aaron Jones. The number two running back this year. You look at where he's going and F. FCC best ball is obviously not being drafted as the number two running back but he is going as the eighth one at the one ten. I want no part of him there. This year I feel like he totally overachieved. This is a guy who the previous two years ended on Injured Reserve with knee injuries. I just I can't. I cannot see him doing what he did last year. And quite frankly I think that's what people are expecting them to do if they take them at the one. Yeah I kinda get your argument but you're not paying the price you're paying the one ten price right okay. So just quick rather. There's three other running backs going on going right around there. Joe mixon Aaron Jones Aaron Jones Derrick Henry Aaron Jones Aaron Jones. Yeah because Derrick Henry Sign I get it okay and enjoy mixed impluse for team is God. Awful isn't rookie quarterback But it could be an improvement over what they had lasting improvement. Could he be Aaron Rodgers as a rookie? I highly doubt not saying he's going to be. Aaron Rodgers is not nor they. I think he has to be Nick Chopper Aaron Jones. I'll take your Jones again. I guess I'M I. I've never been the biggest Aaron Jones higher than than it would otherwise. If you're if you're on a on a buick the things in the things Dave Dave maybe more of an Aaron Jones Fan. Then you have your Josh Jacobs Aaron Jones Jacobs now I think I'm going to take Jacob's on the Jacob's trouble I'm GonNa give you might have trouble Jacob Zuma. I'm like one of those. You know you pick one or the other and you know but it's different when it's you know one versus the other. I'M GONNA go a little bit further up. Jones Alvin Kamara. I'll take humira. I would too and last one Aaron Jones or his fellow. Nfc North Cohort. Delvin Cook Cook I agree all right? I think we're dialed in on that. We talked to Leonard Fournette earlier. Do you WanNa talk about him. And he was the seventh ranked running very finishes the number seven running back last year. After catching a lot of passes I think this is a guy that I've already made made it known that I I'm going to go down with the with the ship with him. Does he do this again. This year is the top ten running back for you this year. I mean what's really changed as renaissance changes? I mean I suppose are trying to figure out what's going out the minute you enfold in other words but that's who they did. Yeah exactly now that I know a team. They blink for but that's who he dealt with last year. Um I don't know I mean I think he's especially if you committed a point about a contract year to me to me when I when I look at a player. Did you say having a contract here I I it. It's it's a matter of them picking it up so technically he could still be a free agent okay to me. When I look at players. That would be motivated for contract your lender for not as like the guy who appears in the dictionary from he's like the number he's like he's like the total contract your motivation. He looks like a person who's very motivated by contract. You're as I have no idea what kind of car driving a feeling. It's a Lamborghini or something like that. He likes the bank and That's just my opinion. I really don't know him. He might be the most modest guy on the planet but just to me. It seems like he that would really matter to him all right. My computer is not working so I can't check it but I believe over my back folks working great a exactly. I think he could. I think he could be a free agent if they choose not to exercise because he was a first round Okay so wash guys chiming in question. From twenty sixers dominated chatroom. Who GETS PRECEDENCE NATURE SETUP COVERAGE GENESIS REVELATIONS? It is going to be geneticists this year. They will get precedence over it and your wife because there's more of you in the Chat Room Ball. He's afraid to get you know it has nothing to do with that. I think the the dedication and the commitment I'm seeing it. This is now thirty three years seeing it from the from genesis and I haven't really seen it from revelations several years so it's Jimmy Genesis. No question all right. This is surprising to me that running back that finish test last year. Sorry what I'm trying not to look if I was supposed to gossip but I guess not quite know you have the sheet in front of you. It's what I wasn't looking okay. Do you WanNa Guess I normally you don't like to guess This surprise me because this is a guy who's battled a lot of injuries miss time And and plays with a very physical style. Chris Carson was the tenth running back last year and that was not a garden. I would guess that at all and he going As far as best balls go over the last two weeks twenty first at the four zero three now You know obviously they still have rishaad penny there. Who's going in as dude? I can't even believe I'm seeing this running back fifty six. That's because I mean didn't he means these guys both had injuries but was like bad right. We'll pay you and their season. Enders Nad to bring Marshawn Lynch back for God's sake but but Chris Carson. So let me ask you this. Let me phrase it this way. He was running back ten last year. He's going off running back twenty one in the early fourth round. Does this represent a buying opportunity for you or is it fool's gold you know? I'm really not sure. That's a great question Penny had a late-season ACL so to me. He's not back he really. I mean it's just so late and it's his first season coming off that I don't really expect much production from anyway so that'd be that'd be positive for Carson I think it's because Carson was not a pedigree back and I think that was Aaron Jones problem as well heading into this past year He'd been injured in now. You finally get through a year and he has production now. What do you do with this non-pedigree player right after late? Carson was undrafted. I think right now. I don't think he was drafted Team likes them and they do use them a lot. It's running base team one of the few left in the NFL so those are really good. Arguments formula four zero. Three I can. I can see the argument for sure I might. I might like them. I'm not totally sure yet. He's not as zero. Rv Guy but if you do start off your with a tight end and a couple of receivers three straight receivers or receiver in and two tight ends which we've seen done before Chris Carson make some sense in the fourth round there for sure all right so we kind of Talked about this and we're talking about here and John Alvin. Kamara dipped all the way to running back eleven. Obviously injuries played a part in that day but no he was nowhere near as efficient as he was in. Twenty nineteen twenty eighteen. And I think anybody who You know has a cursory understanding of analytics. Probably could've told you that before. The start of the season with all the big runs and Receptions that he was breaking off but Alvin Kamara. He hasn't been dinged a ton for that. I mean he's he's he's going later obviously but you look at F. FCC best ball is at the one. Oh six right now. Is that the place you want to be in Business With Alvin Kamara with the corpse of drew brees returning for another year. Micheal Thomas said NFL record with three hundred and fifty seven receptions last year. Are you in business with Alvin. Kamara at the one. Oh six does seem a little early for me. For some reason I just feel like It's kind of where. He got drafted last year. Any disappointed a little bit last year. And I just. They're they're always playing time to me. He doesn't have the he doesn't have the big ceiling feeling that some of the other backs to because he's just not that full-time three hundred carried type back with cats latavius. Murray's not yeah. Yeah that's just my take. No I'm not disagreeing and Michael. Thomas commanded the wall after he really did and by doing that. It does limited chimeras exposure moving on Devon Single Terry running back twenty seven last year. Is he a break candidate for you? This year is I mean you know it sounds like buffalo is not going to be bringing back frank or did they still have. Tj Yeltsin there but devin single terry as the seventeenth running back selected this year the three. Oh nine actually right before Christmas shortly before Chris. Carson is data spot that That you would look at single terry or do you think that people are paying a little bit too much on the ceiling side for him at that spot You know I'm not gonNA come off my position on single Terry. I just think he's not a great special especially athlete and he's not going to be come on so I just don't. I'm not unbelievable. Someone else can have them in. That's okay maybe he'll be great and I'll be wrong. It's fine for what it's worth. He did not have a strong combine and pushed him down draft boards but a lot of people said a lot of pundits said that he was not the type of player. That's going to crush the combine but on the field he makes plays and he did last year especially towards the end of the season. And if you're going to tell me that you want to let somebody else take him in the third round. I'm totally on board with that. Because there's other great players taking the third round even the early fourth-round Todd Gurley Melvin Gordon Jonathan Taylor Andrea Swift. Levy I'm Bell Chris Carson all going right around Devon single. Terry you could make a decent case for all of those guys That they should be going ahead of DEMONSTRA. Terry now I hold a special place in my heart because they got him cheap and a couple of dynasties and he really helped me out at some soup sticky situations last year. And I think that's why I like single Terry. You've already cheap. It was like wait a second. I thought right I got him at least second amid second and another one also pretty nice So so that helped me out But I'm with you I I I do think he is not a special Athlete I think he is a football player. That is very opportunistic and makes plays and certainly there's a place for Guys like that on fantasy rosters so he only scored two rushing touchdowns last year. I mean he wasn't hitting one hundred fifty on Russia's it looks he was basically back up to Gore for probably the first third maybe half of the season then. They started splitting time through sixty three through five. You okay all right. So and then and then. They started splitting time. I WANNA say right around mid season and then single terry really took over the last month. Maybe month and a half. You didn't score after week nine. Which is weird as far as rushing touchdowns five point one years for carry. That's pretty darn good. Yeah that Buffalo offense I think. In general is is is kind of underrated Only a couple of minutes left here. You see eight nine ten on your sheet The running backs. They're sure pick one to talk about number. Nine number nine is Damian Williams. He finished at running back. Forty one we found out today that it's the chiefs are not expected to bring the Shawn McCoy back. I don't know if that really affects Damian Williams at all Because McCoy was a healthy scratch super bowl. If I'm remembering correctly you are Damian Williams Dave I feel like you know you look at him right now. Is Forty running backs. Going ahead of him Interest seems like way too many given his usage in the super bowl. I know I'm sorry for an overreact. No I I was wrong. He forty running backs finished ahead of his going running back thirty. Okay right now which is still late. at six O one. I think that's a deal. I I do too and I think people are just assuming all the chiefs are going to draft somebody or they're going to bring somebody in well. Didn't we Kinda seem that with with them last year? And what did they do? It was McCoy right and that was it. That was the big edition. Yeah but I mean you know to be fair. Williams didn't have a great year. He really but I don't know I I am I. We also did not advocate taking him. If I recall the rescue. It's like around saying yeah but now it's a six. It's a little bit different and I think I think maybe they realized that they haven't him 'cause he really was good at the end of the prior year now in the super bowl relied him probably should have won the MVP to be awesome. Yup and I think that they look at look back. And then I call you know the stadiums guy. He's actually pretty darn good. Cosmo Eleven F F the Chiefs Trust Damian Williams and pass pro and that means a lot with my Homey d will bargain then yes. He is a bargain that it as a grade zero guy. Yes you know you go with your load up on your receiver. I feel like I'm taking the receivers you get your tight Damon born Sir. Trumpers gotTA Better do that impression like for next year because pretty soon the people listening twenty. Remember who you're talking about. Isn't that crazy? And whatever he's still alive he didn't die right man's villa. Yeah just oh well. I'm not sure I don't know he's riding a bus somewhere. I don't know what he's doing Clearly enjoying life just like we do this show and that's going to do it for our show. This week I wanNA think Brent studebaker Dave Grzelak the F. FCC Rob Rice. Of course each and every one of you we will be back. Live next Friday at ten nine central joining us. We'll be twelve fifty number twelve dynasty co Champs. Dan and Brian. Jc.

Are you fully in dynasty mode? Our no not exactly so when if I I'M GONNA be starting this coming week more. They're not starting but I'M GONNA be spending more time on it it to be honest. It is from my own personal feelings and I don't have a lot of early rookie picks so it's like. Oh yeah I I don't have. I don't think I have a single ping top seven so it's really annoying. It must be all these good. I created a few away like. Oh okay all right. He's GonNa fix it also. It is annoying though. See All these good players and this is such a lot of second rounder. So I'm good okay. So you're all so you'll be like you're drafting first-round players in the second round. Maybe not quite the same. It'll be close and we'll talk all about it coming up on the next five or six shows of the HSF. Thanks listening everybody be safe to.

Rest of the West #2: Chargers aren't in last anymore!

"Hello, everyone and welcome to the second episode of rest of the west. I am one of your host Matthew Stanley. You can find me on Twitter at bolt van in Denver, and I'm joined once again by Michael Peterson, Michael Scone on guys. You can find me again on Twitter at zone tracks. All right. So this week we had another divisional game. So we had to, we only had watch two games again this week, which was kind of nice Broncos played the raiders the raiders were at at Denver, and then the chiefs took on the Pittsburgh Steelers. So we're going to go ahead and we're just gonna jump right into it here and get started with the chiefs, Michael. Once you once you lead us off and start your thoughts? Yeah, guy. So if you got a chance to catch any part of the game, you probably saw patch Mahomes put on another show woes, his third career star first dating back to the end of last year. But he's on quite the tear right now. A historic. Ter where his touchdowns are up to ten, which broke Peyton Manning's record from his two thousand fifteen season Anju breeze record in two thousand nine season. Both I believe were those teams Super Bowl season. So I don't know if that's foreshadowing of by any means. But manning had nine breeze had nine and Pat Mahomes announced its top that list for most touchdowns through his first two games of the season with ten craze your thing. He's only thrown zero interceptions absolutely insane. He's officiant with it as well. In this game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, he was twenty three twenty eight for three twenty six and six touchdowns now that's just absolutely insane. Anytime a quarterback who throws more touchdowns than he does incompletions for that game is pretty gnarly and manages kinda sucks because obviously Stanley, you know that dating back to last year's draft show and leading up to that draft. A lot of us at the staff chargers fans alike. Thought that Mahomes was going to be could have been a perfect fit for the chargers seen him for the ball round in the vertical, saw offense that the chargers use. It just sucks in the more he does. These amazing historic things more. He balls out on a week to week basis. We just have to realize as a fan base that this is probably we're gonna have to get used to for the next ten years, which just sucks. I dunno other words say or to describe it, but it sucks. Tell me how you feel. He is just unreal. I mean, watching this game this week, he looked super comback their suit like he did not look like a guy starting his third NFL game. He was calm, collected, keeping his eyes downfield. He showed good movement in the pocket. He was really good rolling out when he needed to, and he really put that arm that that laser rocket arm that he has. He really put that on display. Some of these passes that he have just they just like. You know, closing pitcher fastballs to his receivers, the the first touchdown that he threw to Travis Kelsey was that was just on a laser and it was it the way it got delivered the way it hit Travis, Kelsey hands. It was kind of behind him a little bit and subscribes. Kelsey had to turn all the way around as he grabbed it. But the way he was turning around and the timing in the way the ball hit his hands. It almost looked like him grabbing the ball, spun him around enough to get into the end zone of his crazy. But yeah, he just looked. He was unreal. I mean, he, he is re mean he's going to have to come back down to earth eventually, but he just looks like he's in the perfect fit offense for him. Right now. He's got plenty of weapons around him. Their offense of line is doing just enough to keep him upright and give him time when he doesn't hold onto the ball too long. I think it took too sacks in this game. It may just been one, but he those that was on him mostly. He was just holding the ball on a little too long. He just looked really good. I mean, he he's buying beyond his years. Subsequently incredible, and it's been a little call it a tale of two games the first two weeks for the chiefs where against the chargers last week we saw have homes just hook up with tyreek hill over and over and over again. It really was that Mahomes entire. He'll show we saw walk ins and Kelsey and even hunt for lack of a better term. They were all kind of bottled up. But this game we saw Kelsey walk ins and hill Algo for was it? Kelsey went, seven catches for one. Oh, nine and two touchdowns walk ins was six for even hundred entire e kill had five for ninety, but still had a touchdown in even cream hunt eighteen for seventy five carries is in the greatest thing in the world, it's better than when he faced charters. He also had a touchdown through the air. So it went from Pat Mahomes. Andy Reid did need their star players, which was the scariest thing in the world to showing just what they can do when they get everybody involved in. Again, that is scary. Scary. Stuff yet their offense just like like it was cooking this week, and so watching them spread the ball around like that and watching all of those players get good touches. So as much as we beat up on the chargers last week for letting tyreek hill just Runamuck after seeing this game versus the Steelers, I don't think we gave the chargers defense quite enough credit last week for how well they bottled up these other playmakers because Travis Kelsey is a top two tight end in this league, especially right now with hunter, Henry out. Like I'd say they're probably to eight and to be one hundred Henry's healthy. But Travis Kelsey is an outstanding tight end and the charges held onto one catch. And I think he only got one or two other targets at all. In that game, they just had him bottled up. Completely. Sammy Watkins was pretty much a non factor in the chargers game. And current cream hunt was pretty much non factor. So to see all of those guys kind of ball out against the Steelers. You know, it sucked at the chargers lost and it sucked that tyreek hill ran loose. But I gotta say in retrospect now I do give a lot more credit to the chargers defense with how well they performed despite giving up all of those those giant chunk yards to Taibbi last week. I mean, anytime that the team could find silver linings like that. I think that something that you really can't be understated team's gotta take with, they can get moving onto the next match was between the raiders Bronco same thing last week we didn't have to watch, you know, a ton of games. So a couple of US foes is out of the play each other. We're going to talk about the raiders I in I, I don't have the final score written down. Matthew have it was two hundred twenty two nineteen. The Broncos one after holding the lead for six seconds at the end of the game. So another another very, very close game. I guess we are happy that the raiders are now Owen to just because we. We love to really beat on that horse. And I don't think that's going to get not funny anytime soon. Let's put it that way. But in general, der car had himself a pretty decent day only threw one touchdown, but he went twenty nine of thirty two which is crazy crazy efficient. And if I remember correctly, she just saw it on Twitter of my buddies isn't a fantasy, wrote it up real quick. But he showed that the three of the foremost efficient quarterbacks in the red zone. This season, our quarterbacks rivers, Mahomes, Derek Carr. Being three of them with Kirk cousins. Being the fourth cars had a pretty efficient. I two weeks just made a lot of bonehead mistakes. Definitely plagued them during the first game at this game, he kept it real close. Again, didn't really turn the ball over if at all to eighty. One touchdown Lynch had himself a decent day eighteen sixty five in a touchdown. Cooper looked like a little bit of his old self. Ten catches for one hundred sixteen yards. No scored there. It wasn't too much of a defensive performance again. From the raiders still missing colo-. MAC, one guy wanted to highlight real quick was MAURICE Hurst who was a rookie defensive tackle from Michigan that I'm Fisher. We've talked about before amount of been on this podcast on the last episode, but he had a sack. So one of the most disruptive interior defensive linemen from this past draft class still showing out. So maybe there's, you know, some potential for some defensive players are up, there sees me, but again, lack of a defense defensive end rush pressure off the edge look like kill the raiders this week they did it. It was mistakes on both sides of the ball, both sides of the ball that really hurt the both teams this week actually. But we're talking about the readers for so you know, overall watching the game, the big things that to me is their offensive line is really good. What I thought was interesting is Derek Carr, almost like a little shaky in the first half like he kind of had happy feet a little bit, but he still was complete his his receivers, catching everything for him and doing them a lot of Evers. So that was that was good for them. They kind of play almost a similar style of offense to the chargers. There was a lot of quick passes to set up. Passes deeper passes later on that basically what I noticed was the first half started out with a lot of quick passes to the outside. Swing passes in comebacks to the outside. And then what that did was the the Broncos safeties started sheeting to the outside. And then early in the second half, they started getting big chunk plays over the middle of the field to Mark Uber in Jerry cook. So that'll be something to watch out for when they play. The chargers is to see that do that kind of the same kind of thing where they start setting up those things later, marshawn Lynch is is still good. He's still b.'s moment at like every time it gave the ball. It looked like he was dragging guys for a couple of yards in. It was really hard to bring him down. I honestly think he has he, he showing a little more burst than he has the past couple of seasons that I've watched him play. He, he was really able to get. On really quickly when they gave handoff. So that'll be something to watch out for to the chargers. Somewhat shaky, rush defense in a speaking of those plays over the middle. Jared cook looks really good. Like I am not surprised if you're watching this week. I'm not surprised that he went for a hundred and eighty yards in week one. He looks basically just like a slightly big wide receiver. So I'm excited to see how that matchup looks against. 'cause you're white because we'll talk about later in the Saturday show, but as you're white man, he just bawled out this week in impasse protection. And so that's going to be a fantastic match up. And then the final thing I noticed on their offenses, they bootleg Jared car allot, and they do that to set up a lot of different kind of plays. There was a there was twice where he tucked. It ran out of that bootleg. There was a lot of passes out of that bootleg and then the it r- it really helps. There play action like when they, they get their whole offense of line moving wonder action in the leg car out the other way, it looked really effective because the entire front seven basically went wherever their offensive line win. And I don't know if that's more of like a fail on on Denver's part, or if the Oakland offense was just that good at selling it. But that'll be something that I I watch for when the chargers play the raiders to. But on defense for the raiders their, their defense isn't great. Their their defensive line is active, but the Broncos offensive line is not great, and the raiders defensive line didn't get as much pressure as I thought they would and the they weren't able to shut down the run barely at all, and we'll talk about their the Broncos running back filled Lindsey here in a few minutes. But yeah, I think the the Broncos defense, I mean, the raiders defense is probably is the worst in the AFC west, even behind the chiefs who have given up. I think six hundred yards of offense to games row now, like it's it was five something for the chargers. And then it was almost six for the Steelers. But yeah, the that raiders defense is is not great knowing it's definitely not. And I don't know if you saw the graphic that I think was going around social media where it was posted or a posting glue max stats through the first two games. Next to the entire open defense. There's added. Yes. So if you remember off the top of my head, I think they both have to sex it both have one interception. They're pretty much the same until you get to the fact that glue Mak has touchdown on the season and I end of force from will force fumble. Yes, so that's absolutely incredible. So you wanna talk about a team that their biggest thing that they're missing is a pass rush and really just that one defensive playmaker who you can trust to make one or two plays during the game to kinda swing the momentum in your favor when you need it. The most is just crazy in its. I think bleach report had a really good visual with the photo shops grund in a bar washing MAC on the TV make plays and just had him super depressed, drinking himself to death like they're having so much fun with it. I think the countries having so much fun with it and the more clue MAC continues to show what he can do and what the raiders are missing. You know with him in Chicago. I think it's going to be a fun year. I think this was going to be one thing that you know, no matter how negative the season could potentially get. We can always look back at that mistake by Gruden and just have a good laugh. So just incredible man. I don't know what else is just incredible bullets, move onto the other half of that game. So the Broncos looking at some quick stats here keenum was less than ideal after he had. I wouldn't call it a great game against the. They play. The Seahawks credits are split on his right now in one cracks. Yeah. Yeah. So against the Seahawks keenum had a pretty good day thrown the ball. He had three touchdowns, but at the same time had three interceptions this week kinda took a step back. Nine hundred thirty five, two hundred twenty two yards. He had one pick zero passing. Touchdowns did have a rushing touchdown. Obviously, you know a w and he found a way to will team to a win, but keenum's was not the star of the show. He wasn't the main reason why they won. You could say. But like we mentioned earlier, they have a surprising, surprising, undrafted free agent running back who is come in and completely outplayed Royce Freeman of round pick running back out of Oregon. In this past draft. Why don't you tell us since you are in Denver at the moment tells a little bit about Philip, Lindsey. So Philip Lindsay is basically the Broncos I'd say off diet, Austin. Cler they have pretty. They're pretty comparable when you look at him. So at there. Austin was five, nine, two hundred pounds and Philip Lindsey was five, seven and a half. One hundred ninety pounds. So he's he's a little bit smaller. The Broncos haven't listed five eight. Yeah. The Broncos elicited five eight. But he's he's tiny. So Austin has about an inch and ten pounds, but Phil Lindsay ran a four, three, nine in his forty and Austin equa ran a four, four, three. So very, very close. They're filled. Lindsey had thirty five and a half inch Vert awesome. Jumped out of the gym at forty forty and a half inches fill-ins. You had a ten foot, four inch, broad arsenic, Loretta ten foot eight inch, broad films. Iran, a seven point one, two, three cone and Austin Renna six, eight five. So Ecuador is a little shiftier and more explosive. Lindsey has that straight line speed and diet? Yeah. Yeah. And then so far this season fillings, he's got twenty nine carries for one hundred seventy yards. So he's averaging six point one, four yards. A carry us only has sixteen. Carries, but he's got one hundred sixteen yards. So he's going seven point two, five hundred carry. So they're very similar. And when you watch them play, they play with very similar style. They they both are very patient approaching the line. They have good vision picking holes, and then they just exceleron through them very suddenly and they both. It looks like take. Take defenders by surprise because I don't see either of them going down on first contact, very much. Philip. Lindsey has a really good approach to oncoming tacklers and is able to get his shoulder down. He keeps his balance. He runs through tackles and he just creates himself the kind of the same way often acted as so he is his really been impressive. This early start to the season and I, it's honestly just kinda cool to see for him. He's a local kid. I mentioned before when he made the team as undrafted free agent. He actually texted Terrell Davis, who was just, I mean, as much as charging fans love, ladainian Townsend, Terrell Davis, super loved here in Denver to. So he reached out to Troy Davis to ask if he could wear his number. And so, yeah, it's it's kind of a cool story for him and he just he looks really good and to put it in even more perspective as as much as we get on the. Chargers, offensive line for not grading holes, especially on the right side. The Broncos offensive line is worse. And so he has even worse holes to work with and he still finds ways to create for himself. So he's he's really good out of that. Branca's backfield 'em and that's crazy. I think we talked about it on the last pod, but we brought up. It wasn't even on the pot. Honestly, I'm losing my mind right now, but we talk about Philip Lindsay is the first undrafted free agent running back to record over one hundred yards from scrimmage in his first two career games. So again, we have several players in the AFC west. Having historic starts to the season, Patrick Mahomes touchdowns foot. Lindsey, define all the odds to make the team as a undrafted free agent and excelling from the very start. Just absolutely insane. What I mentioned before we started recording that Lindsey in Royce Freeman are very, very similar to the situation that charters have with Melvin Gordon Austin Acura, Lindsey. Bean under at free agent of much smaller back. Defied the odds and has been exceeding expectations. Since he showed up Freeman was a much more highly touted back us. A higher draft pick Gordon was obviously a first round pick and Royce swim was their third round pick and it's the undrafted free agent man. The guy that no one expected at all comes in and shows them up so Freeman in. We had eight for twenty eight. He did have a touchdown, but that officiency same thing, man, we talk about Gordon averaging under four yards per carry for his career. He's averaging three point eight for his career. Three point eight through the first two games a season off lers at seven point three, seven point. Two five earlier is just crazy. They kinda got a similar situation I think is just amazing to to see honestly in a league where the best teams have these amazing tool threat backs, but talk girlies six one, six, two to fifteen to twenty in can do it all. All, but you have the chargers in the Broncos with these bags like five, nine, Austin cleared, five, seven and a half. Philip Lindsay, that's just gnarly. Men. This five, seven and a half. That's like Spud Webb, you know, come into the NBA and trying to be the best he can be. I mean, same situation is absolutely crazy. Moving on from the running backs. Let's just go over real quick keenum as receiving core. Sanders had another good year year skews me had a good week four for ninety six in have touchdown, but that keenum to Sanders connection that reports really growing. We've seen that through the first two weeks, man. I don't know what it is with Mary's Thomas, but five catches for eighteen yard. That's absolutely insane for former receiver who spent however many years in a row, catching all the passes thousand yards. This season. He's having a rough start to begin to eighteen five eighteen not a good look. Not a good look whatsoever. What do you make of the Bronx. Ios wide receivers? Yes. So it really was it. It's worse than the stat line shows for diminish Thomas. He had three really bad drops. A one of them was on. I mean, they were driving at the end of the game. They started this drive, they started their drive with a penalty, so they were I in twenty from, I think their own eleven yard line with less than two minutes. No timeouts left. So they had to drive like ninety yards no timeouts. And so they're driving down the field and. Case keenum. He escapes from some pressure in Mary's Thomas's open in case keenum puts a really good thrown hits directly in the hands. He would have the first down and had a past of the sideline to be able to get out of bounds us up the clock and the ball hits from the hands and he drops it. And I mean, I think he probably left fifty yards on the field between the three drops. He coulda had a much better game and really helped his team out. But he looked like Travis, Benjamin, man. I mean everything. They hit him in the hands of just dropping the Emmanuel. Sanders I've loved for a couple years. He's really good. He's just a reliable catcher. He's tough as nails and he does well working either from the slot or outside as far as case keenum. He looked really like he looked really bad in the first half. He was kind of panicking anytime he had to make a quick throw anytime he had set his feet really fast and make a quick throw even on like designed just like swing passes. They were all really inaccurate. He he, he was feeling pressure that wasn't there all the time. He just it wasn't a great first half from him. Then in the second half, you really calmed down. He started waiting a little bit longer taking an extra, an extra beat before he made the pass and started connecting with his tight ends and with the weather Cevers. So it'll be interesting to see if that continues because that's that's kind of the same thing that happened in the first game when you start throwing all those interceptions. But yeah, the the Broncos offensive line isn't helping him out very much because they're not very good. They had a couple costly penalties to, yes. I mean, it was basically the Broncos beat themselves in the first half, and then we're able to put enough together at the end of the game. And in that that clutch time to go win the game. And I mean, like you said earlier a WW, so you know it good for them for getting the win, but this is a, you know, probably the most vulnerable Broncos team. We've seen in a few years even compared to last year. I don't think this. Offense is at the same levels. They were last year and until case keenum can prove that he's like legitimately and upgrade. I, you know, I as Broncos team has some soul-searching to do fully agree. And before we wrap up the pod, let's just go over the Broncos defense real quick. Just, you know, you can pick out a few guys. These kind of popped some guys overwhelm that von Miller had another sack. He's up to four, I believe. I think he's still tops if not still in top three of sax in the NFL speaking of Saxe the Broncos drafted guy number five. Overall, in this last draft Bradley, shove highly regarded edge rusher defensive end out of North Carolina state's, and I don't think we've heard much at all abou- Bradley through the first two games. And this is just picking fun because it seems to me that the chargers got a better pass rusher at seventeen than the Broncos gods. That number five and we'll go over this later. We'll probably talk about a little bit Saturday in a small recap will do, but the charges obviously got dirt when James as safety at number seventeen, and he currently has to sack on the year to lead the chargers in sacks Bradley. Chubb don't think he has to his name right now. I think he had a half tackle for loss against the raiders again, that's just me poking fun Stanley, talk about the defense real quick and we'll get this thing wrapped up yet. Savant Miller's basically just a game changer. I mean is as good as the raiders offense of line is von Miller is causing havoc everywhere. I think he had. He had like a, I want them written down, but I think he had a strip sacked. It was nullified by defensive holding. He just he causes a lot of disruption in the in the backfield. Another really good player is their safety. Justin Simmons at Boston College two years ago. He he's like really good. He was all over the field for them this week. He had nine tackles. He led the team in. He's he, he looks. He looks really good out there, and they're defensive line is fantastic. They've got, I'm gonna butcher, his first name D'amoto D'amoto Petco Pecos ease really good. And when you throw him next to sandwich him between von Miller, Derek Wolfe in Bradley Chubb, I mean, they're defensive line is really, really impressive. Like we were pretty spoiled when when we're trotting out, you know, Joey Bosa Melvin Ingram. And then finally Jit, whoever else is. In the middle or pretty spoiled there. But I think the Broncos you know, they might have one up on us with that defensive line because it it is something in his, you know something to, behold neither I fully agree. I think they're interior is much much better in terms of consistency in a role talent than the chargers. I think Justin Jones was second on the team in and snaps for that defensive interior. What we're still the team chargers are thrown around. Justin Jones around philan- legit, comes back legit, spin underwhelming in over the last couple years. Unfortunately, I think last year was the year. He had zero sacks, just not a good thing. See, I agree with you overall, Derek, Wolfe, Petco causes problems in what little. I was able to watch the Broncos raiders Petco I saw two different plays where you know he did something phenomenal and it was flexing at the sideline, and and he's an animal. He's also for fun fact. He's a month. Stir in mad and I don't know what it is. Are these players that aren't even graded highly for some reason pickles just that one guy that whenever you play the raiders now raider skews me the Broncos. He's just making plays in clogging up at middle of von Miller, Derek, Wolfe, Shaq Barrett. I think who they have to shift around and rotate in in that fronts. It's it's awesome. The death is very underrated with the Broncos. Yep. I think that nails it. So that about wraps it up for this week. The the Broncos are now to know at the top of the division are now the chiefs are tune out? The top of the vision Broncos are right behind. Raiders. I think they dipped below us now. Yeah, because their own too. Yeah, their own too. Charger, one and one. So the the raiders and chargers both now have division losses and the chiefs and Broncos both have division wins now so that you know that's already putting them at EVA's for for tiebreakers at the end of the season. So the charge and have to make that up and make these division games count when they come along. But yeah, I think we've got another good week coming up and hopefully we start seeing some Broncos and chiefs losses. Yeah, I'm looking at the the games right now seeing with the got for a week, three chiefs, their first home game of the season, and they get the forty Niners and you know the forty Niners will win, say they're as hot right now is they were to end the seventeen season, but that's still a really good team. That's gonna be very interesting game to watch as well. Any re- coached against Kyle Shanahan two of the best schemers play callers in the NFL. I believe right now definitely. Definitely. Gonna be watching that game charter wash what I can the raiders. Are at Miami now. You think so. Oh yeah. The dolphins are to know and their their. Their offense is actually really surprising right now, I think tannahill let's see. Our ten got four. He's four touchdowns on the season already. Kenny stills looking good. Yeah, they're a, I don't. I think that the dolphins are a good team right now that I don't see the raiders beating him ochre. Traveling east coast and having that early start like. That's that's not going to be great for the for the raiders. No, you're right. I can definitely see that. So Olen three star of the raiders would be also marvelous in, obviously the chargers take on weight noise skip this. The Broncos are at the ravens. And I think this is a game where the Broncos are likely going to get the first loss of the season. Ravens at home are a really, really good team, especially with the defense that they have. I'm I'm blanking on right now, but win the ravens played the bills that was at Baltimore cracks. Yes. Yes, they were at. So at home, I really feel like this Baltimore team gets about a Sout as anybody in the NFL. They have one of the best defences in terms of turnover. Sorry, creating turnovers, pouncing opportunities like that. They have one of the best run defenses in the league as well. A lot of good interior defenders along that line very underrated defenders, Brandon peers. So known us of us Williams already blanking on it. Brandon Williams skews. Excuse me, Michael peers. There we go. I think you might be the first loss for the Broncos. Hopefully Joe flacco has a rebound gang so definitely need it. And as you all know, the chargers are at the Rams the first real addition of the fight for LA. I'm super soaked for, but I'm also super scared for it's very mixed feelings. I've seen people on social media, talk about that for whatever reason they cannot. Not get over this. This idea, this feeling that the chargers will win just because of past games in history where the chargers play down to their competition sometimes. And then when they're faced with the best competition, they, they seem to just pull it together. So we'll see your, maybe that's just the Iowa Hawkeye fan talking to me because that's what I get for being a fan of that team. It's the same thing. I don't know quick feelings on the ups Sanley. Yeah. So like I said, I think the raiders probably lose this week Baltimore, five point favorites at home right now. You know, I could see them winning that game easily. Not that they would win easily, but I could easily be talked into them winning and then the charters in Rams. Yeah, it's it's gonna be a really is actually the first real test for the Rams the season. They've played too bad teams so far, like you said, it's kind of the first addition of this. This battle for LA. 'cause they played once, but it was in the preseason last year in at the charter stadium. So this is really round one of the fight for LA in. Yeah, on on paper. The Rams are a fantastic team and they probably a little bit more distributed talent than the chargers. Do. They have a better coaching staff, so it's, you know, I I can see why the Rams are seven point favorites, but like you said, I mean the charters, they usually play the level of their competition both up and down. So I, I don't see the chargers getting blown out. I don't know how confident I am in a win, but I don't think I think it's gonna be close against can be a really good game. And you know, I, I think there are ways to win the game and we'll see what are the chances for representing up at the game comes down to some sort of kicking the bottle. If it does all probably be on the news for something local area, man does unspeakable horrors. Local news is mind. All right. Yeah, think about doesn't cool. All right. Well, thanks everybody for tuning in again. We will see you guys on Saturday and don't forget to check out some of the other podcasts got gone on from the bolt from the blue guys on Tuesdays and got the lightning round. Mondays. We've got cow Posey bringing you his drunk hot takes right after the game and Thursdays. We have geared sixty with the score more podcasts, so that'll be out on Thursday. Yeah, thanks buddy.

Hyphen am joined by the one the only here we need the fantasy analyst. We deserve the dark knight danny kelly t._k. What is on your mind. <hes> my neighbor has a parrot and it's the f. up a storm out there so i'm hoping that you guys i can't hear my neighbors parrot during this podcast but <hes> not not a whole lot man. How are you doing. What kind of parrot macaw thing is. A cockatoo is what i was told old and apparently they lived to be about eight years old so we really kind of stuck with this thing for a while. Probably yeah bergen just serve in for craig is craig is out this week. He's trying out a receiver for the oakland raiders so we we wish him luck and speaking of luck. We're going to be running through the risers and fallers since our last few episodes <hes> we've done an episode and quarterbacks running backs and receivers on tight ends but since then there have been some changes some people got hurt some peop- things happen yeah. Some people don't wanna play football because they want to use their old helmet. A lot's been going on so we're going to bundle all those changes and put them together with some people who are rising and some people are falling so so we're going to start with the obvious one. Well not obvious. Let's be real. Tony brown's the guy but we're going to put him off a little bit. We're gonna start off with andrew luck. Doc were gone through this again. This is really happening again. It's deja vu. All over again shouts yogi berra but luck has not practice in nearly three weeks with another not such a mysterious stories injury like that shoulder injury that kept him out twenty seventeen but kinda mysterious pretty mysterious so here's the deal so there's he's for three weeks. There's no timetable for his return. He missed o._t._a.'s with a calf strain in may and then. They said he'd be healthy. In june. Miss the otas june even luck with surprise that he wasn't healed yet but he reported for training camp played played in practices in july but aggravated. It has not played in august. There's still no timetable for his return which is really concerning concerning for august nineteenth which is recording and the real issues jimmer say and colts g._m. Chris ballard came out on monday but i mean jim. Mercy had the real quote which was it's this little bone thing. It was like that doesn't sound like a calf muscle <hes> so we don't know the deal here. It doesn't sound like the kevin durant. Iran comparisons are worth it. All doesn't sound like the thing but does sound like there's a bonus you. I'm not a scientist so i don't know the deal but i do know that no timetables concern so decay okay yes must move lockdown you but how much and how much does it affect the rest of the colts offense from t y hilton eric abram morlin all those guys so yeah. It definitely does move lockdown for like if you're drafting. If you're going into a draft <hes> i mean his a._d._p. Right now he's accused five and overall seventy one so oh i mean. Are you gonna take him that early. Like that is a huge risk. I already subscribed to the late round quarterback <hes> philosophy v anyway to me. This just makes luck on draftable <hes> honestly like in one quarterback league at least galaxy brain this and say that quarterback is so deep that you would be willing to take a look at a discount because you get like lamar. Jackson is a backup anywhere even jared goff. Maybe <hes> but you know i. This is terrible because i love luck m._v._p. Happy i loved luck for all the awards this year but now this is just terrifying and obviously it depends when you draft. I think that'll be theme for a lot of these going forward but man. I don't a quarterback who with no timetable to return so that's tough chris ballard the colts g._m. Came out and said that anything front back and forth he's good but standing there throwing anywhere any other throwing he's good but it's moving around the pocket. Those are the kind of things that we've gotta get him better at like like the very important thing of moving around in the pocket if you yeah yeah it's just it's really concerning if you watched so there's a sometimes it's really illuminating to watch the videos that reporters tweet on twitter instead of reading the quotes because 'cause you can really get more out of watching the players speak for luck had a pretty good explanation for this a couple of weeks ago at this point where he said look if i come back and and i'm playing pain. I can play but i'll be average. I have no interest in being average. I won't be andrew luck and i want to be andrew. Luck when i'm on the field oh boy and part of what makes luck luck is scrambling around the pocket extending plays like that's what he does so if he's not locking. Don't you have to andrew luck if you're still in for name brand of the man himself doesn't think he'll be that so the the question though like t. y. Hilton does this. Does this hurt his value in your mind or is he still a top end target. One hundred percent it hurts is valued. Miami's quarterback might be hurt. I think she copay process one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league. It's not a good he's a good deep author or so. That's good and try to what he goes. Yeah have no interest in investing in receiver who very easily could have a backup quarterback one so that's just now does it up marland max potential though no because i think it downgrades the offense. I don't think yeah yeah it upsets them personally. I think it definitely downgrades hilton any bra so yeah. We got something to really monitor going forward. I mean that's yeah. That's potentially a massive massive n._f._l. Wide storyline so well pre crazy. That's going to keep the theme so speaking of n._f._l. Wide storylines cup hold outs situations. Yeah zeke elliot when we talked about this a couple of weeks ago at this point for the running back pod. We just dismissed the idea that zeke would miss anytime or at least i did <hes> he's still holding out he's a._d._p. His his average physicians slightly fallen from like one point two one point four but again so fantasy drafts a really going to begin over the next two or three weekends. Tony pollard who jerry jones has just been very excited to talk tony pollard and there's been all these comparisons between like emmitt smith's hold out like twenty years ago and they're taking up this running back from memphis. He had all thirteen first team snaps and running back sort of putting it loosely because he was actually sort of slot receiver here for them. He i think he played in the slot receiver more than as running back. So pollard is an very very interesting piece of leverage. He did look really really good though and and he i think he played thirteen. I seem snaps daklak weekend <hes> and he looked really good so yeah. It just kinda depends on whether you believe <hes> the hyphen if you believe that that they're using this as if it's if it's more than just leverage i guess i think it's a leverage. I don't think yeah elliot misses any games. I i think that the levy on bell thing is fresh in everyone's minds and it's easy to forget how that was completely unprecedented for education different situation really small but important details that levian bill was not under contract he did not he was franchise tagged and then the way that works is the players signed the tag and then they play right he did not sign and then he never signed so was under contract. Trek couldn't be fine and then princess of free agency elliott is under contract can be fined and then it's years away from doing that even if you wanted to which would burn the bridge with the cowboys. Ah it's such a different situation but i think right for negotiating purposes. It definitely works in their favor to put the perception out there. They would miss games. I think jones owns jerry. Jones is causing all this. I think that he's gonna play. I think you definitely want to draft tony politics. You draft zinc one hundred thousand percent. There's no reason not to he's still i mean politics. Holidays barely drafted at this point so you can get them at the draft yeah but he's not james connor and i don't think this is james connor levy. I'm bill situation. So your guess is that he's going to not miss any games is they dropped elliot from. I think he's now fourth in that for person to your eyes saquon barkley alvin kamara christian mccaffrey and whatever you wanna put them and then zeke is fourth. He's not left that here but the fact that we have to have this conversation alone puts him fourth but i'm not worried enough about them. People had him as the overall number one in in certain scenarios. If it showed up to training camp he'd be that for me yeah in standard leagues anyway so i'm i'm not worried about is now the one person who i'm still not worried about right but i think there's a better chance that they would hold out is melvin gordon on the chargers. He's also not shown up yet. I think he has a better chance than the elliott to hold out but it's still low for a simple as ezekiel. Elliott wants to stay in his team right. Gordon just wants a deal because melvin gordon unlike like zeke has an injury history and needs to get paid because if he gets injured he's really at risk of not maximizing earnings right so gordon has a little more to lose this year but profanity pros consensus a._d._p. His average draft position is dropped into the late second or third round the kenneth surprising to me actually how far he's dropped. I mean zeke is dropped. Two spots total and gordon has dropped from. I think like like late first rounder into again into the early third late second early third and some some places people really are kind of worry about this and so depending on how you look at it he could be a great value or he could be a huge huge risk so there's a lot of reasons to not love gordon this year but he is dropping into value for me 'cause again another key difference between elliott gordon that again tony pollard with on the cowboys is not proven austin cler is a pretty decent backup running back jackson melissa pretty good third running back actor right now is going seventy seven th overall thirty two among running backs but the thing was gordon was kind of overvalued when he was tenth or twelfth where he was <hes> he he was expected aggress a lot in touchdowns fourteen last year in twelve games based on the volume with carries and touch was supposed to have around seven based on numbers and and then his offensive line is getting worse because russell kunis out it a pulmonary embolism no signs yet of when he might return so now replacing him but left tackle strength scott. They have sam heavy at right tackle. Maybe the worst right tack on the league so they've maybe the worst tackle combo in football and they already had one of the one of the worst guard combos combos with dan fenian michael scofield that left and right guard surrounding mike pouncey center suva bad line situation and then another person we'll get to in a moment keenan allen who who is going to miss at least the preseason with an ankle injury so the chargers dropping like flies unfortunately and that's not to say anything of james but at at what point do you think gordon becomes a value. That is the question. I i do think in the early thirty good value honestly i in your your set like he s i think he is a very strong regression candidate in ways that he scored five scored seven and a half touchdowns over expected <unk> is a the result of he was extremely extremely productive and consistent in the red zone. I think actually saw the stat. When i was writing. I wrote an article last week. What about the stickiest stats and expected touchdowns one of them and he i think he scored. I'm just on the top of my head like twelve out of fifteen carries inside the ten yard line which is absolutely unsustainable. That's not going to happen again <hes> so he could drop like he said he could drop by seven touchdowns whatever back back towards where where he's expected to get based on his usage and then if you add in <hes> the fact that he might miss a couple of games the beginning season ultimately i think he's gonna play most of the season he may miss a game or two who early on but <hes> yeah i mean if if you get him in the third round i i do think that's a pretty good value or i'm gonna make you play a quick name game real quick mel gordon melvin kevin gordon or delvin cook melvin gordon. I don't i don't trust alvin cook either injury wise i it makes me nervous so gordon are todd gurley girly. I don't even know on that one. These these are such difficult decisions man like like how do you predict exactly what is going to fade at the end of the year. I think i would lean girly just because even you know sixty sixty eighty five percent of what he did. Last year is still like insane production so i think i'd lean girl in that situation but again. These are really really tough decisions. I think you know what gordon was a top ten guy early in the summer and now there's a ton of uncertainty and that's exactly kind of what we're seeing and while we're on the chargers. Do you drop keenan allen because at this ankle injury right now keenan allen is another guy in the twenty. S is the tenth wide receiver number twenty four overall and fantasy drafts mock draft right now so adam schefter said the ankle injuries quote quote not considered serious. He's expected back for the regular season opener but he's getting now. He's at the very least he has to manage an ankle injury all year and he was an injury prone. Guy ed that label but then kinda beat it the last couple of years now. He's got another injured manage. Does this change how you feel about him or mike williams hunter henry behind him yeah i think i think i would drop alan in my mind. I mean think about the guys that around him and a._d._p. Adam phelan is the receiver wide receiver eleven. You got t. y. Hilton as wide receiver twelve. I think i would probably probably take those two guys over keenan allen at this point. Amari cooper is about wide receiver thirteen so on digs fourteen so and this is in standard scoring and i i don't no i just think the uncertainty again. The injury thing is very very concerning. I've see he's played a couple. He's been reliable multiple seasons but he's got a lot of injury history as past <hes> <hes> yeah so that that is definitely concerned. I think that the allen injury exposes that there's the soft middle receiver class. After mike evans goes off the board where you have t y hilton who's andrew luck is her and then you have keenum allen himself as her then you feel an and digs who i personally am worried about whether kirk cousins is going to be able to make both of them where they're going. I think one of them will stay in one of them will fall and i don't know it is i don't want either and then amari cooper solid and then there's like a bunch of upside receivers from frame cooks and chris godwin and i kind of a wait to get to that next class guys but nothing with the dow on yeah sticking feel great about any of that yeah getting away from the chargers but sticking with gordon josh gordon's back decay yes right after we talked about in the last podcast he he got reinstated. I think think like fifteen minutes after we got the podcast that is why fulltime craig's fulltime called bag plug josh gordon when he was completely undrafted. Gordon was reinstated aided by the n._f._l. Last week he was traded the patriots last year for like a fifth and seventh rounder and then from week three to week. Fifteen gordon was the twenty fourth best wide receiver in fantasy begins. She was playing right behind. Ken gollden at humphries but ahead of mike williams larry fitzgerald and emmanuel sanders got a super bowl ring invited to the ring ceremony nice so now i mean not look whereas being drafted now is completely irrelevant because he's about to be drafted in the seventy s or so so right where again just a little quick rep into us the thirteen sixteen hundred forty six receiving yards and nine touchdowns when he was bidding passes from jason campbell bryn weeden and brian hoyer and only and he's the the only player in n._f._l. History with back to back two hundred yard seasons was basically randy moss for one year so with fantasy lens obviously the risk of being re suspended is huge but from a fantasy lens. How do you feel let him being back. I mean i think it's i think it's well number one. I think it's awesome awesome. I think and yeah it's it's a big deal. He could be the top guy in that a offense now i mean obviously items there and he's gonna play a big part of it but <hes> i think he has yeah. He's got elite potentially still. That guy is still based on all reports. He's still working out really hard. He's still going to be that athletic. You know freak break down the field and can stretch defense and all that <hes> he showed early on in the patriots offense that he can kind of go into it and and play and figure out how to do a lot of a lot of people have trouble going into that offense because the research especially for receivers <hes> in that offense. It's a lot of like option routes and sight adjustments which means if you when you line up you're looking at the defense in you're supposed to decide exactly what they're playing like based on the coverage you have a gesture route out and you have to do it sort of on the fly and it's not like brady yelling at you what it is you guys have to be on the same page with brady and that's why it's been so hard for so many receivers go into that offense kind of figured it outright away and he did that and now he's had you know another whole off season two in theory study that offense and get on the same you know get get it really really ingrained and figure it out and so i think there's tons of potential there. He's he's a really really talented player so it's exciting. I think if you stash them ready like congrats congrats. Give yourself a hand. I mean if you stash first of all you stash already. I don't know how you having draft before nineteenth but congratulations. What are you talking about. People have drafts. It's all summer. I've already had like fifteen drags. Look man. That's so much anxiety. Oh my god but yeah. I mean yes you gotta. Do you gotta do early draftsman. It's it's a whole different ballgame but yes it is. That's why it's terrible up. Brady brady had him at his house. I believe is locker was next brady last year so i i mean they definitely took it seriously i so but i'm not gonna let you get away with. Josh gordon's high upside so we're going to he's ranked like seventy ish was where he got put but honestly i think there's nobody that will garner a wider range of thoughts where you should be drafted so never name game with him. Josh gordon or jarvis landry gordon kenyan drake gordon alshon jeffery <hes> as a tough one. I think i'd lean gordon just upside but that's tough yeah i like. I like jeffrey to d._j. More on carolina <hes> d._j. More i think i'd lean a little bit on that. One alan robinson with chicago. I liked robinson but i lean gordon is because i don't trust trubisky and that offense at all but could you just throw the back of meat you trust gordon to stay in the patriots offense sure yeah yeah why not get into why not but yeah i do yeah no. I'm with you in that look fantasy. Obviously i mean here this all the time but it's talent an opportunity to town. It's is not a question with gordon but the opportunity is huge because he really did pick up the offense so he's it's look practically speaking. It's like an injury risk you know but when he plays it's incredible right right before we keep going and get to a certain helmet adult player.

Up next the ultimate riser in faller antonio brown i'm summarizing the situation i think would need its own ten our narrative podcast so we're not gonna do that but here's the point he froze his feet cry doing cryotherapy when he didn't wear the proper footware and then twists it wasn't really that he didn't show up the training camp because of that but because he wants to wear his old helmet and the n._f._l. The raiders telling them you can't that's against the rules and he's not playing. He showed up monday but who knows what he's going to do. By the time this it goes up and is published. It could have changed four times so the point is this guy is a loose cannon. He's a loose cannon can possibly get how comfortable are you drafting drafting loose cannon abby well. I've mostly been avoiding him <hes> even before sort of the the foot slash helmet debacle. That's been happening over the last few weeks like i just haven't been yes. So what did i say foot slash omit. That's that's good stuff. <hes> i've mostly been avoiding him just because as i think <hes> in that range there guys i just like a little bit more and feel a little bit more confident and i think he was number twenty two overall wide receiver nine and right. That's a high pay. That's like amid second so i think <hes> i just think that in that offense he's going from a very very high volume. Passing offense in pittsburgh scored a lot of touchdowns. There was already going to be a ton of regression like potential potential for him going from steelers to oakland in a much worse offense in theory a much worse quarterback and then add in his other stuff adds another layer of uncertainty. I was already fading in any way <hes>. I still think he's gonna play. I think he's gonna play like he. He's gonna start the season but i'm still to me. It's just a little bit rich for for. I think the gr- aggression that he's gonna have this year. We'll so here's the thing this is where average draft position can lie and right now as average draft positions unsparingly changed. He's still going twenty-second. There's no way that when in the next week or two or three when that number again it gets more accurate is way more people start doing mock drafts and real drafts. It's a have to believe that that's gonna fall. I just have to so where do you believe that depends suddenly like a bargain because once that we were uh like the class of like adam feelers to fund dick's. How do you feel about them. Versus antonio brown yeah i mean that would mean he falls tenor so or whatever how me over spots right now twenty one so if he falls into the thirties that's when i start getting really comfortable taking him. 'cause that's those guys in that. Range are a little bit riskier generally generally like we were talking about before it's just there's more risk baked in so <hes>. It doesn't have to fall far for me to start taking them but right now. He's right after mike evans if i'm sitting there with mike evans antonio brown on the board. I'm going evans for sure yeah. No i mean it's just about safety at that that high up and a._b._c.'s as many sailing well i mean braun ceilings. He could lead the league and targets and i don't think anymore baton i give it to lead the league in touchdowns i just i don't know it makes makes me nervous. So that's kind of where where what about you. What's your take on this whole thing. Are you fading into. I just don't i think he's a loose cannon. I don't want him on my team if he filling authorities of the forty seventh to think about it but right. It's just as unpredictable as as any recent n._f._l. Story has been so i look the name game if if he sitting there and the two top receivers on your border feeling and brown who like more my answers probably neither there are probably taking sony michelle or i'm probably taking i would take mark kerryon johnson kerryon johnson absolutely okay. I'll take four net over browned around without leading without hesitating yes so that i don't think that tells you you think's gonna play sixteen games sure. I don't know that i've no idea in practice with his team which is bad on on hard knocks and he like when you watch him run. Oh my god. That's a cinematic masterpiece. He he says <unk> fast man. He is so fast those john ross. He doesn't play okay so that is really terrible example but yes okay first first of all ed. Tony runs speed is not what makes them good would make some good is. He's the best route runner in full speed. I'm just i'm talking more like foot speed. He's yeah wolves ridiculous but yeah preferably. That's helpful helpful when you're on the field place to use foot speed. That's fairly hooligan move on next up we got a._j. Green the banias india's. This has just been tough so he had an ankle injury in the opening day of training camp. The nature of the injury was wild and kind of under covered. The bengals were practising at welcome stadium liam in dayton ohio. They were doing this because the n._f._l.'s celebrating their hundredth anniversary campaign and dayton ohio and triangle park was the site of the first n._f._l. Game between i'm not making this up the dayton triangles in the columbus panhandles in october nineteen panhandle fans listeners right now anyway. This is how tyler boyd the bengals angles number. Two receiver described the field quote. The turf was terrible. I couldn't run any routes out there. I'm falling all over the ground. It was bad it was rocks pebbles out there man and it was somewhere we shouldn't have been that is the day that a._j. Green got hurt t._k. So <hes> he had surgery. The surgery revealed revealed other issues in his ankle so they pushed his date pass return <hes> week one. It's six to eight weeks as of july twenty eighth which is week one to week three ish <hes> he he missed four games in his first five years of his career but now aged green is ms thirteen in his past three years. He's averaged draft position. Now is fifty two overall which is like wide receiver twenty one which kind of no man's land so way. What the hell do you do with age agreeing. This year i so yeah we're assuming he's probably gonna be out like at least three weeks right and then recovering rehabbing yeah you know during the season but he could be elite the second half of the year in in your fantasy playoffs or what i'm so i've we've been taking him in the late like if he's there in the late fifth and early six. That's kind of where i'm saying okay. I'm gonna take you like that's any any earlier than that. I'm feeling pretty uncomfortable doing it but yeah if you're if you still sitting there in the six round. I think he's a huge value so that's kind of like my. That's like where i'm targeting him. I'd prefer tyler boyd whose going basically the same range of the early fifties among like the beginning of the third wide receivers around twenty two twenty three. I'd prefer boyd boyd personally. John lewis has also today which john ross always seems to be dated a the guys behind. Them are doing well in practice but they're drafted guys. Damian williams stanley morgan junior alex alex eric. Erickson is the third guy but it's like he's like a punt returner. I think tyler boyd's all they got. They're going to be behind a lot. I like tyler boy much better than green. I just don't want an injured guy my team. It's it's just not a risk. I really wanna take personally there enough. Next up. We got damian williams on the chiefs. He was the presumed order had a bad week last week. He was demoted motive from feature back to running back by committee if it was ever going to be that at all and then also had a hamstring injury for speed so that's tough yeah so just the timeline here offense coordinator eric benny beanie the enemy the enemy in may late may said damian williams was our starter period. We expect him to excel in that role and then that has changed over the last couple of months. Andy reid on august ninth so about ten days ago said i did this. I i did this a little bit back when i was in philly kind of a running back by committee deal and we had success with it <hes> so basically he he's sort of changed that we we don't know exactly what's going to happen. It sounds like they're open to using these different guys. <hes> quite a bit more close heightened darwin thompson carlos hyde had a fumble <hes> in the the game in the preseason game last week so that doesn't obviously doesn't help his case and darwin thompson. Meanwhile has looked amazing so i personally a much less confident in damian williams having like a belco role this year <hes> obviously in the chiefs offense any running back that gets like volume is going to be a huge fantasy factor factor <hes>. I just don't know if it's going to be williams like i could see this being a half half halfway through the season darwin thompsons kind of like getting the most snaps or something like that so <hes> <hes> williams was already kind of a guy that was fading in the last few weeks has not changed that from me. I'm i'm just like i'm not super stoked on him going into the season season. Some are craig is doing victory laps because he was happy to point the damian williams had never had more than fifty russia's in this season and he didn't believe it'd be terrible arable. <hes> the now the fact is women's speed guys ninety second percentile and the forty yard dash. She was four point four five but he enhancing poll. An answering posted speed guys is is really tough. Lingers main skill <hes> eddie reads also really been talking darwin thompson. He's going undrafted so craig loves carlo side but my god darwin thomson maybe not initially like the first few weeks but it seems like by the middle of the year darwin thompson seems poised to be there but yeah that could be a committee role not really be anywhere near as as the chiefs job might not be as big of a deal as it was less for years. Yeah damian williams right now has a._d._p. Is twenty seven. He's a second rounder he and the entire comfortable with that off season he was one of the biggest <hes> ranking disparities between e._s._p._n. Is beyond the whole year. He was someone that was early. Twenty s in some sites mid forties and others and whether who knows what they there would be right or wrong because the injury really puts it back to him being in the mid forties for me as where i think you should go yeah all right before we move on.

There's a lot of followers talking about. Here's a riser. We've at least one riser on this. <hes> theoretic is gone. He was this. I don't know what the vulture is because there's vultures for guys who steal touchdowns. I don't know what the vulture term for is for guys. Just take snaps passing downs. We need a better word of that. Someone has an idea. Please let us know but theoretically riddick played thirty eight point six percent of detroit snaps last year which was the most among running backs on their team. Seventy four targets sixty one catches three hundred eighty four receiving yards gone. They cut him daryl zero beverage their offensive coordinator now daryl bevill daryl devil. Your beloved former seahawks coordinator. They wanna run more kerryon johnson. I think it'd be a real three down back act behind him as c. J. anderson and zach zen a bunch of nobodies so i think kerryon johnson is suddenly one of the best bets to become a three down back and like oh yeah. That's a top fourteen guy next year. You can get in the thirties. Love carry on this year big riser for me. Yeah i mean an all comes down to so his a._d._p. Has gone up about ten spots in the last month month. He's twenty eighth overall right now. Rb fourteen <hes> it all comes down to though his usage as as you alluded to is he going to be author down guys he gonna pick up those uber valuable valuable pass catching targets because <hes> tar targets 'specially n._p._r. Leagues are worth more than rushes. <hes> catches especially obviously so you get yards plus a point for the catch. <hes> is a huge part of scoring n._p._r. And so yeah if he can be the full like the third like i early downs end third down like if you could do all that we're not even talking like potential to gain a golan targets are carries. I should say but <hes> he yeah. He's got elite potential but i'm still a little concern that were not going to see that i mean i think so far in the preseason i you know c. J. anderson has been featured a little bit on third downs which is a little bit weird c. J. anderson starts voltaren carrie johnson. I will lose. I will be out of my gourd. I'm kind of worried. That's what's going to happen. I mean you know lose my mind and then tie johnson is another guy rookie a six rounder that they picked this year who's really explosive. <hes> good good pass catcher you. He was a really good return college all that so he could eat into carry on johnson's workload a little bit so i think obviously losing riddick can though seventy four targets is a huge deal but i'm just a little bit worried that carry on not gonna get all those i it's still it's not a clear-cut situation to me. What is clear cut. These days dean ads true. Nothing is yeah but i i'm personally haven't. I don't have a lot of shares of kerryon johnson. I still a little bit concerned about how it's gonna play out plus. This is a low volume probably slow offense and so yeah next up. We got the forty niners. Backfield is not clear cut either muddled muddled. We've got kevin coleman who is their big free agent. Signing jerick mckinnon who has their big free agent signing last year and then suffering tornado on august and then matt brady who is just a tough son of a gun who just had an ankle sprain lectures played it so mckenna has still not been cleared for action might be like physically unable to perform candidate which means means he would not be able to return for six weeks of the year. At least he might even be an eye arkin. I'm not sure exactly what's going on with all so what do you make of the forty niners backfield because this was an unclear unclear situation. That's becoming clear clear. Yes so it to me. It looks like coleman and braida are the best bets by far and right now. Braida is by far better value <hes>. He's our ari forty six in p._b._r. A._d._p. is one twenty one which is <hes> about sixty nearly sixty points assist sixty spots after ten coleman coleman is looking like the starter but braida is a pass catcher potentially very explosive player. We saw last year <hes> so yup break right. Now is is rising. I think coleman's counter-sting stayed relatively stagnant <hes> but yeah brain is kind of a guy that a lot of people were saying oh. He's a really good later. Round target really really potential high value guy in so <hes> you know in the later rounds so he's on. That's interesting coleman's going in the sixties right now. Can you paint paint for me a landscape where kevin coleman it's being the best fantasy pickup twenty nineteen pick of everyone value coleman at sixty fifth ends up being a league winner. I mean yeah. There's a if he gets like seventy percent of the workload in that offense and that offense improves a lot like he could be that could be a really really good because in two thousand sixteen when kyle shanahan was running the falcons offense obviously the niners not the falcons but devon devante devante freeman was the sixth best running back and tevin coleman was the seventeenth best now you've having coleman probably having a bigger role and more of a hybrid between what he and freeman were doing in two thousand sixteen and i don't think that i'm not saying you'll be the best back but i don't think that the forty niners in twenty one thousand nine have to be the falcons twenty sixteen for there to be an amazing value with these dudes yeah yeah. No i agree. I think i like those two guys a lot too. I think they're good players. I don't know if i don't know if coleman is a. I don't think we saw last year. He didn't prove to me that he's like a three down guy so i think it's gonna be somewhat of a committee but <hes> yeah. I think you know they're both very interesting me. I think the forty niners could be a very good offense going down. Side is the think the forty niners collectible is running back because they also want their opponents have no idea who they're going to use every given week so that makes it really tough for fantasy. That's that's the downside for me is you don't yeah next up. We've copa from me. We have the steelers number two job behind juju smith schuster dante moncrieff and james aims washington had been competing for it <hes> my bad. I truly believes that james washington. It was the second round pick would win this job <hes> he will not in fact. It seems already over. All indications are dante. Margaritas already won the number two job. He broke his ring finger. Unlike the teens i padded practice but he's back and he's fine and as grand barfield of n._f._l. Dot com noted the steelers. First team played fourteen snaps on the most recent game. <hes> juju had thirteen of the first team snaps dante moncrieff had nine and james washington had one so i still believe in the steelers number two receiver i think they're gonna not take all of brown's targets and give it him mm-hmm but obviously but they're going to spread them around but he'll get the most and take my love from james washington a couple of weeks. Go spread it around heat don. Hey krief in <hes> juju will be on the outside and then slot plot will be kind of a mix of rent switzer rogers and maybe james washington. Here's the thing that i it's funny that you say this because i think you're right like mont. Moncrieff is probably going to be the the number two or whatever but when you said that you really like jane wash james washington. I was pretty skeptical because at that point he hadn't done anything in camp but he's actually looked really good in the last two in last year. Preseason games now granted you know it was a little bit later in the games that points and and you know whatever there's there's the level level of competition argument there but he's looked really really good had a couple of really nice deep walls so i'm not saying. I don't think you're necessarily. I don't think you necessarily need to do the whole mea culpa i could. He could eventually ascend to that number two. I thought he would win. The job and dont'a moncrieff has wanted. I in a dynasty league. I'd prefer james james washington. If it was like week eight forward i might even prefer james washington maybe like i don't think james washington is going to get that role. I think dante mock groups that guy to target their fair enough but but but i like james washington is kind of my. I think you're right all right. Thanks i appreciate that man next up. We're going to houston decay <hes> on this on the same day kikuchi he kikuchi who is a popular sleeper for the texans slot receiver <hes> he injured both hamstrings last year in played just six games but was excellent the games he played and <hes> august atheist an ankle injury that was not major reportedly but who notes that looked really bad but the same day the texans traded for johnson who is the browns running back who was was dissatisfied and had kind of a beef with baker mayfield that was becoming a thing and had wanted to trade all off season and then finally got it now. Duke is one of the most athletic maybe the most versatile running back in the league or among the handful and he can play in the slot so let up on the same day. So what do you make of critise injury and then do johnson being houston now johnson immediately becomes is one of the more intriguing mid to late round picks right. I think because we don't know exactly how he's going to be used like. He said he can plan the slot. He's a very good receiver. Maybe he inherits. All those not. Targets are a lot of them. You know maybe they run with two running backs or whatever maybe he's the starter over lamar miller. I mean they gave the third round pick up <hes> he has to be active for ten games for turn into third round pick but it's probably gonna happen so that third pig is that's not cheap. You know that's that inefficiential tonio brown right <hes> that's potential as like your starter so <hes> obviously i'm not a huge. I'm not really high on the mar miller. It's it's gonna be. You'll have to see how things shake out with. You know the texan's backfield but they are in the more miller. Have you found anyone who's high on the more miller now now because he's like the definition of <hes> average is their starting running back right there so yes so i think you know i think johnson is super super intriguing. He's i i had him. You know i picked him a couple of times when he was kind of having the the issues with cleveland hoping he traded to a good team or a team that was a good fit for him and i think this is a good fit in a sense that he might get some pretty solid volume some some solid fantasy volume in houston so the texans ran the ball more than all but three the team's last year so it's not like you know they're like a pass. I necessarily team. He could get some volume on the ground but i think he you know more more so is going to be a pass catcher for them. <hes> <hes> and the coup tease injury is another factor that i think it's going to be really interesting so i. I really excited to see what happens with johnson. I think worst case is he doesn't even play the ten games and does even net third around her and i think is best cases that he usurps to recover win as the premier pass catching back behind james white because they truly it could pull that off with him this year yeah that would be yeah. I think that's a good ceiling floor. Scenario next we have the dolphins in kaelin balaj. We touched on kenyan onion. Drake is in a walking boot. <hes> players are splitting reps with him at practice. Sorry players are splitting reps at practice before the injury happened and he'd kenyan drake had really secured heard the starting job like it had been assumed then he gets hurt and now he's in a walking boot. Foot injury is expected to be back for the season but missing the missing. The rest of august is not not good kaelin balaj. Another guy like drake was not really with going back to college had a ton of volume but a pretty good candidate to get half of those dolphins carries is a former talented than the rest of the guys. They have their so right. Now he's going. I mean he was a month ago is going one hundred and seventy fifth so just completely undrafted in fantasy drafts now. He's like one hundred seventeen eighteen. That's probably still too low because i don't think drake is going to just get the job when it comes back right so i like balaj a lot for where he's at and i actually think that that has not arisen enough based on jersey. It feels to me like the dolphins backfield as a as a litmus test or like a rohrschack test like you either love balaj balaj or you love drake. There's no middle ground. Speaking of decay decay metcalf yeah hawks wide receiver. I'm going to let you have this is the only other decal l. let you take it. I mean he was slowly. I think he had been rising <hes> he had been. You know his a._d._p. Slowly gradually going up a lot of positive reports from camp damp. Everything i heard was that he's doing amazing and training camp and all that <hes> and then he missed yesterday's seahawks preseason week two game turns out out. He's undergoing knee surgery and his. They're very very vague about it. We have no indication of what is happening. <hes> p cayrol role is bullish on it. He's he's optimistic but that means absolutely nothing because pete carroll cannot be trusted when it comes to injury <hes> indications and so yeah. I don't know he metcalf knee injury there. There was some health issues in college. That made him miss games. That was kind of the reasons. People were a little bit low on him so oh. This is all very bad stuff. <hes> so i think metcalf is is gonna plummet here and let me cut through your seahawks fandom. I hoped each decay metcalf has a wonderful n._f._l. Career but from his rookie season in terms of fantasy football lens he will do nothing he will do nothing of note this year. He's just nazeer nazeer. You're saying that's going to happen. I hate that. I hate to be defended. I can't think of a player who profiles less as a year one contributor because fundamentally the thing has not shown himself able to do is just get open quickly. Those are a game. That's not his game. That's what i know but that's really important in the n._f._l. And i just don't think that he's going to be able to shoot it. Could he have some amazing seven yard touchdown a couple of them yeah but you won't be in your line up for that and i don't think any his play will not be consistent enough that you're like. Oh yeah i'm gonna start decay metcalf at flex in twelve like that i can't individually. She can have moments but they won't be predictable. There will be no reason to his production. I hate to say this but you're probably right. Jim kelly record that save it for posterity charity for all future moment man. Our jobs not hurt my heart my soul to say that danny but yeah you're probably right. I mean look at last year. A lot of people probably were really reticent to even start lock it and he had ten touchdowns. <hes> you know later in the year. Maybe they started him because he was showing out but is is a low volume offense <hes> mm-hmm. He's probably really depend on touchdowns. He's not gonna get a little targets so yeah. I think miami red lion high. We're going to end on that note decay. Thank you for saying i'm right. I've been waiting the full year for that. Thank you jim best of luck to credit raiders camp yeah.

Live on the air and ready with every angle of the Mega Michael. Thomas extension out of Schefter broke news when he joins US live plus a report from N._F._l.. Nations Mike Triplet live from New Orleans and it's all in the family inside the relationship Queen Thomas Thomas and his uncle keyshawn dodds key will also join us live to react to the news another day another one hundred million dollar deal lots to get to today day with trading given full swing with Mortenson Damian what he and Mike Tannenbaum. I'm Suzy Kolber. Let's get right to it the nuts and bolts of this mega Michael Thomas deal the state side their star wide receiver to a five year one hundred million dollar extension through twenty twenty four the deal contained sixty one million guarantee it makes Thomas I believe the highest paid wideout twenty million per year a new money he has now the highest paid non quarterback offensive player in N._F._l.. History with the extension Thomas Passes Odell Beckham Junior as the highest paid wide receiver. He is also the first non T._v.. Offensive Player to get paid twenty million dollars per year for more on how the deal got done. We say hi to Adam Schefter who broke the news this morning so Adam. What was the expectation Asian for how big this extension could be well suited the whole didn't exactly wind up getting Michael Thomas a lot of extra money? All along magazines were prepared to go to about nineteen million dollars a year so by holding out he gets an extra million dollars a year which by his estimation was worth it but he was getting itchy he you want to come in and he made it very clear to his group that today with the saints being offers the day that he wanted this deal wrapped up and there wasn't that much negotiating Debbie from the time that he held out on the saints were at nineteen million dollars on average time this morning that they agreed to a deal that basically comes in twenty twenty million dollars a year on average worth up to at least with all the incentives factor into the deal Michael Thomas gets what he wants and the saints get what they want. which is this sold-out behind them the distraction behind them and ready to roll as they believe they can compete to win that division go far in the playoffs and possibly even make it to the Super Bowl and now that Michael Thomas is deal is done of course all other is will be on the other wide receivers Julio Jones in Atlanta Amari Cooper in Dallas maybe even A._J.? Green in Cincinnati the truth is I don't think that Michael Thomas is deal ever was going to affect Julio Jones very much. We'll get to all that but Adam just listening to G._M.. Mickey loomis Sean Payton even drew brees over the last couple of days. It seems sort of matter of fact that the deal would get done. was there ever really any concern there. No in fact I think the feeling around the League Susie had been that of the five veteran holdouts that this was clearly going to be the first deal that got done and they'd been close close all long for the last few days. It was just a question of Michael Thomas being comfortable enough to sign off on the alike. We said the numbers were basically the numbers. They didn't change all that much. You got some incentives. Some goodies mixed in to bring up the average per year to get it to that twenty million dollars a year. That's being reported. That's the deal is worth worked up to so again. He's happy early this morning. You're on the phone with his agents. David McGee to Andrew Kessler from athletes. I got that deal finally agree to Michael Thomas US now can report to the saints and again to your point no. I don't think there was ever a question that this deal was going to get done. I think the real question is on some of these other holdouts and when when those deals get done exactly now who will be next hey thanks Adam but for now great reaction on twitter regarding this Lebron tweeting about the news congrats Logo well-deserved going and settle for nothing less than greatness and Thomas responded noted all right so we all agree completely deserving. How much would you have paid him? That's about the right number when you look at the impact Michael Thomas Thomas has the New Orleans offense you go back over the last eighteen years last year. Eighty five percent of the throws that drew brees threw to Michael Thomas were completed which is is by far the highest completion percentage so you take Michael Thomas outside that offense. They're really GONNA struggle. Their next best to targets are Jerry Cook tight in Albuquerque mayor the running back so twenty million dollars a year in this day and age. That's about the right number. Somebody that's so impacted like Micheal Thomas. There is nothing surprising about this deal and in the deal we'll see the details come in between nineteen and twenty million but that five hundred million dollar headline looks good and that's you do those things for the players like this. This guy's never made a million dollars some base salary in his first three years the league he was a second round draft. Pick and you look at the numbers so the saints are glad to pay him this money. This is where the money was was going to come in to and it. It doesn't surprise me that he was itching to get in there on an off day so he can get going and playing football game for the so I I don't see this as any surprise either this number or the timing of it you mentioned cook but he's kind of an unknown at this point just how he's GonNa mix in there I mean the real known the great connection with Braise. Oh absolutely I mean now. We're talking about uh a nice little window. It's got to be a sense of urgency. Obviously drew brees is forty years old. Now you lock in Michael. Thomas into the Mesa was by far and away his top target. I in that office and listen little boys. You New Orleans Saints Thomas Now Thomas now this. They have everything from them Defenders Office a line netted Jerry Cook in the off season at tight in out. She Got Michael Michael Thomas Beckenham it. It's now never we see two seconds years. They've had what we call. These catastrophic plays as happened against New Orleans saints at some point soon. Bring Tom to break through and get to the Super Bowl so interesting I promise you here's what Mickey Loomis Jerrell manager and Sean painter feeling right about now. They're going to feel good for about five or ten minutes and they're they're gonna be like all right now. We got to deal with drew brees and Teddy Bridgewater Two quarterbacks they like both of them and ideally they loved to keep both of them again. So what's so challenging about these jobs. Are you feel great. You get your star receiver in the fold and feels good for about five minutes and now it's all upside because even breeze talked about you know he knew the Thomas Deal will get done and he had some quality time with some of the younger guys that they wanna mix into this offense as well a wide receiver really be the centerpiece. Do you believe of this offense the way they're constructed instructed he he really is drew. BREES had three touchdown passes last year. You Take Michael Thomas <hes> this offense. They are a lot easier to defend so his value again it does approach twenty million dollars a year. I think he is of all the players on that team. Besides the poor back the hardest replay centerpiece Damian my life Mike and we thoughtful minute right now listen. I love Michael Thomas. There's no he he is. He is a catching machine but you can't sit here and tell me that Michael. Thomas is more valuable than Alvin Kamara. I'm sorry when you look at it when you talk about album Kamal first of all he's is more versatile than Michael. Thomas Micheal Thomas can catch everything but Allen Kamaz the more explosive play on that office. You'd take Alvin Kamara away from that away from the New Orleans Saints. That's a different offense that we're talking about here with New Orleans saints so if I if I had to take the other give me Alvin Kamara aw running in the receiving Agri with Damon and don't forget that offensive line which is truly one of the three or four best in the league and when the time comes to I mean they admit they didn't know how good of a runner he was gonna be like Micheal Thomas. He's a boy he was the third round draft pick Michael. Thomas was the second round draft pick they. They got bargaining years out to be going to go ahead. Let me I like Alvin Kamara. He is a good player but what he hasn't been a fulltime story at they had marking and while everything is encouraged he has all the skill sets that you like to be a sixteen game star at running back Damien as we know is a challenge show taking nothing away from the players talent Michael. Thomas has done a year in year out the only grade we can Alvin Kamara in terms of durability is a grave incomplete. You say you tell you what else is a challenge trying to match up with Alvin Kamara as a as a player. I mean you're talking about a guy who can live in the backfield. You could split him out coming out of the backfield running routes. How many guys can really match Alvin Kamara in in those particular roles? I I don't see it every week. I watched it on saints. You've seen Sean Payton Dallin out or Kamara aw number again again and again did media. He's the he's the indefensible guy on that. There's no fun to play that play for a lot of reasons yeah. That's how the war's molly call me before we move onto onto to hold out at a mention. Julio Jones watching this next in line. Do you believe that WHO Jones was Washington's. Julio is quiet but he is eh savvy businessman and there's no question that he knows he was going to his line is beyond twenty million dollars Arthur blank. The owner doesn't like to let any of these guys go now now. He's got two years left on his contract got. Some people in the front office may say well. You know we gotta give discount because that two years no you make exceptions for guys. Julio Jones and I think Arthur blank it is going to make that happen even though Julio's adamant he won't play in preseason not because I don't think we will see him in preseason gets number and if not he doesn't have his number by in the year there will be okay something to keep an eye on right now. Let's focus on this holdout so with Michael Thomas now disappearing from the holdouts list for or high profile holdout from me. There's Melvin Gordon Nana conduct way front Williams and Zeke Elliott. Let's start there. Zeke Elliot continues to hold vowed. He hopes to become one of the highest running backs in the League working out in Kabo as history may fan oxnard cowboys did sign album Morris to a one year deal as insurance or Elliott case the holdout extends Jason Garrett diplomatic as always no real reaction to that. We're focused on the guys is that we have here what we need to do to be better every day. You know what I know about. Zeke Zeke loves football. Zeke works very hard. Plan football is competitive. He's passionate said a big impact act entertain over the course of the last three years so you know we trust him as a player trust him as a person and we love to get him back here as soon as he can. We trust be ready to go any not yet but when Jerry Jones said you know team doesn't need N._F._l.. Rushing champion to win the Super Bowl when you were cowboys. It's very actually he understands Zeke. Elliott is the M._v._p.. This offense and the he's twenty three years old and he's going to get there's money and I think he'll get it this year. Before reports the camp he's twenty three. He's at he's at his peak and <hes> one thing that jury is told me before he is feeling clean his own mortality as an owner and it happens to you getting over and so he wants to get back to the Super Bowl and this team we believe is super bowl ready but not without Zeke Elliott Zeke's going to get his money. WanNa make your running back point here. Heck yeah absolutely because does your salary cap here by spending all the money here. I'll spend all of my Ba- listen when you talk about the Dallas Cowboys. This is a team. That's built around running back okay. We've talked about the office Alon and the reason it defense is pretty good. You know why because Golic Zeke Elliott is run the football eaten of Thomas Possession which keeps those guys fresh so he is the centerpiece of their offense as Zico. Guess what that Person Gold Markku Pogo the deepest go they need to get him. I'm in the phone but I think sequencing is very important here and here's why you have a starting quarterback in Dak Prescott. He's been very successful. Who's done everything right not only on the Field Gilbert off the field? You have a wide receiver in Amari Cooper that what's your train for him last year. You were seven to head you. Were I in the N._F._l.. On third down offense another one that has hailed. How's everything the right way? If you reward Zeke Elliot I before taking care of those players in my opinion. You're saying the wrong message to the locker room that would ezekiel off the field is is okay and if you look at Elliot situation they have under contract they have this fifth year option and they can franchise so while that's right so while he should be rewarded for his onfield production those other two players in my opinion should go first and I would give Elliott a chance to earn more money but understand Who can make his arm his feet? Who's been exemplary on the yeah? I think they can with that now. They're not as good. They're not as good without him but he is a good food winning N._F._l.. quarterback and with Amari Cooper they are still a good team so they won the super bowl without. I didn't say I didn't say that okay okay. I'm Jay just write. Some clarification gauged the flip side that Kelly coach he's under contract for two years. He may turn out the way you say it but it could happen before the season starts in their cash-rich team and they got a way with the capital of it but Jerry does have a lot of cash just accelerate that sequencing. That's all Christie your point though while all the guarantees void because of off field issues getting signing bonus money back is very difficult and I'm sure one of the big issues in Zeke Elliott's negotiations and I've been there is how much money up front and how much is going to be guaranteed down the road because you're right Ken void but you know zinc. Elliot's agents are pounding the table more money upfront more money up front on and if I'm the cowboys I'm proceeding with extreme caution bengals wide receiver A._J.. Green expected to miss multiple regular season games after after undergoing ankle surgery Tuesday. Morn Green was carted off the field during the team's first practice in the preseason just a few days ago I mean understatement. This is kind of in a brutal beginning for new head. Coach Zack Taylor lost his top draft pick Jona Williams and now A._J.. Green but Mike let's start here. It isn't even so much about how he got hurt. It's wary got her yeah. The optics on this guys is awful. The Cincinnati bengals wanted to have a practice at the university which this time of year that happens often where teams want to expand their fan base so you're A._J.. Green you're going to the last year of your contract. You're doing exactly what the organization asked which is participate participate in this practice on a feel which again they're saying it was okay and maybe it was but the locker room doesn't feel that way now you want a new contract and by productions directions down my productions down. I'm not playing because I did exactly what you asked so. I'm not gonNA take less money because I'm hurt this year because I did what you asked me to do and that's going to be a very very difficult conversation between agent Green's agent and the Bengal Front Office even though they have a pretty good base town personnel staff does a good job on untalented going back to the last year any don't was every year until you injury A._J.. Greens and we look at this division. We see the steelers we see the browns and the browns I think are for real and certainly the ravens are always in contention so this to be you lose A._J.. Green and they say two games at least a couple of games was that I am a couple more after that so that's the first month of the season without probably your best offensive player just looking at the graphic tyler bore he he boy he's a rising star optimism there right there is but they had that other entry like you said Joan Williams has left tackle and and they expect a lot from Joe L. Mixing this year the bill no they're not giving up and they have good talent but that's a big loss. I work with Zach Taylor Miami. He's a bright young cable coach who a year ago wasn't uneven coordinator and now he's an N._F._l.. Head coach and he has to deal with arguably his best player being hurt in these circumstances. That's a huge challenge for coaches. Try to establish himself off. Here's the problem with A._J.. Green injury so they're projecting missing two games which more it's probably going to end up being more then you gotta worry about conditioning but the time you get into by the time you get into shape because you spend the whole time rehabbing so by the time you really up to speed you're already in October and where does that leave the Bengals at that point in division with the other three teams seemingly on rise Monday night football end of the month against the steelers was kind of hoping selfishly would be back last seasoning is seven games due to injury. I can't believe it that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets. Look here comes one point seven percent decrease in fits overhead. Hello everybody no. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on Car Insurance Geico you projected increase in Organic Q._3. Revenue Believe Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. It was crazy good cats but my history big you'll get paid big bucks yet. Micheal touchdown the father four times go to war with Thomas. Let's doubt to respond and today today. He is the highest paid wide receiver in history that success is no surprise to those familiar with the Thomas family tree his career influenced by our very we own keyshawn Johnson or more simply as Thomas knows him uncle keyshawn the two sat down for this feature back in two thousand eighteen so now the roles roles reversed now. I get to ask you about being starved senior in the N._F._l.. And what it's like to be a guest posting board offense we definitely set the foundation and Michelle me what this game brings you things the places they could take you relationship just bill the doors could open outside stuff like that and I was attention. Aw Allen Iverson was your favorite sports athlete. Not Me like I'm thinking okay uncle. He got us. He got to say me but you say Alan Iverson. I just liked him. How he competed is he wasn't the biggest may not add all the attention but he was going to make sure that game? You know his name in any kind of play with a chip on his shoulder. You know you kind of greedy and I like that what about remember. You've used to call me and ask me Steph about playing. I'm like man go. Five Zero Youtube is there. Is there any any moments that stick out to you about have opportunity to maybe find things around the house or whatnot my grandmother she used to record like back in the day she you would have these tapes would have like three games on it and I remember just watching you play back row Tampa Tampa Bay in Pied exactly what was going on but I was watching C.. We get our member who scored the first touchdown slam to him that a lot of people people you know they don't have uncle like you to show them that. Examples software like that was a key part to my Ceska all of them to see you play. The game. I'll see at the highest is love is agency play when the social breeze in the shotgun looking for Thomas Dives at the two and falls on the lawn. It was a crazy Mike Thomas and all these big deal get paid big bucks yet. He's a second second year coach pain. Are there any similarities direct. You know you had me that Mike and myself remind you absolute slow seen seen whatever it starts with traffic yards after the catch slant route runner basics. There's some receivers you wanna stay away from <hes> <hes> the the Lions and tigers inside like bill used to say some receivers you WanNa keep outside with gazelles but then it's important to have those receivers that can get inside and make the tough catch around the noise that shoulder throwing Michael Thomas makes great catch not only did you play the same position but the same spot on the field in the position that X and in the same type catches from the same type contested throws these catch radiuses is just like yours. There's so many similarities that way is he as big a pain you as I was differently differently differently. He just expects so much of himself and I think I remember there's a savviness genius to you because I had you later in your career and so your issues were different than his issues and and yet I'll take both up. Do you see any similarities at all. I like to talk when I'm out there. Like what makes you think I used to talk a me. I'll watch you can turn on Youtube. You can hear you do research and here. I used to talk to people and then also people who tell me to experts okay. Tom Uncle Maddio's crazy. Tell me one time. She told me this and they remember that streaming down random. Do you realize realize how lucky you are to have Ju- breeze as you'll quarterback oppose. When I play I went through like I don't know man fourteen my best to guys <music> is was vinny testaverde Brad Johnson? The Guy drew brees. Yes man <hes> every day. That's a lot of take a lot of pride month position my job mice. I'm in the right place at the right time because I know that guy's GonNa be at the right place at the right time. We'll be saying is going to be hall of fame. quarterback drew brees can be consistent going to be accountable. He knows what he wants. Thought by Thomas it he's into the end zone touchdown. You now force me to become the second best wide receiver in the family hundred and ninety six receptions your first two years being the top any receiver N._F._l.. History what does that duty. Mikey is a blessing mm-hmm. It shows like you know all the extra stuff I did on the side of the stuff I doing almonds and look in discipline. Keep going eliminate this strike actions keep pushing through and then you name right writes the top and I feel like I think a lot of pride in that. We think my mom is saying today. She Watch you stay focused. Whatever I'm doing keep doing Bush's thank you going taking the top because she saw you go to not be like she's watching down right now? She wants to take it to the top and in the wake of Thomas New Mega get contract extension. We welcome in on Coltie so keyshawn. What was your reaction when you heard about this deal just just basically I'm happy for him? I would I text him and said congratulations and <hes> you know one of the things he takes me back. Sousa just said you know long time. I'm coming but one of the things I was waiting on draft day when he got drafted and you know he's a little disappointed like most kids are when they don't go in the first round when they come out of college they you know they think they're better better than everybody else which is true. I felt that he was the best receiver in that year's class of the draft and he went in the second round so when you look and you watch some of the receivers that went in front of him wanted my or messages to him was it's not what you start. It's where you finish adding in right now. He's above all of them so I'm happy for that and drew brees talks about Michael's competitive competitive drive and sometimes at practice they have to force them to cool it a little bit what impresses you the most as he goes into his fourth year. That's it's one of the things I think for me when I play that was one of the things that I had to do. I have the Dow back whether it was me taking our regular team reps as well as scout team reps and I told him even in college you just continue to take reps on scout team if you can when you get into the pros make them snatch you out of practice. Make them tell you you have to stop because a work. Ethic is one thing the more you can do. Is You know in the normal work field the more you can do to better off. You'll be and I think showing them that. He's a relentless worker and he's going to constantly be there. That's something that coaches appreciate general managers appreciate that you're GonNa be with them standing there on game day on the sideline not just standing in there just to have the uniform on and let your perspective on just how fortunate Michael is to be on this team what I think will you win you. You Know Oh you go back to his draft and you look at where he was drafted. A lot of guys get disappointed again so but when you land with Sean Payton and you land withdrew grease and you land with with Mickey Loomis and you know they're gonNA put players around you to make the team better because they've done it before. They've been in the playoffs. They've been in the Super Bowl. I mean you just got all the best of both worlds for the hall of fame quarterback. You Got Potential Hall of fame head coach. You got all sorts of other players that have been around you that that are just young and exciting eating it. So you know two years in a row they got Kinda. sucker punched out of the playoffs. They're a team that is right there. That should be right there in the end again next year or this this year better yet the exciting to watch. We appreciate the insight from uncle. Don't call me that you make me sound. Oh you are yeah so it's been a while since a wide receiver has led the league in receiving yards of one super bowl in the same season last wide receiver lever to do that was Jerry Rice back in nineteen ninety four since the merger. It has only happened three times. Jerry Rice van is to do it twice. Zoo Pearson encompassed it once I don't know back to the animated discussion that we had at the top of the show which can the foundation piece of an offense like this really really be the wide receiver foundation always look in the trenches I and quarterback so and when you look at the saints on Offensive Line and defensive side they're they're among tops in the League so the foundation is there and Thomas just a very instrumental piece for that franchise quarterback. I think he's giving the wrong guy. He made a comment. I'm the one that pays you not him did you did my wife really. Thanks you for that continue. Ah I will say this when you look at it as production his first three years he has three hundred twenty one receptions. The second most is Antonio Brown at three hundred eleven so and again if anyone's earned this Saying that <hes> there's any issues in terms of potential durability issues which we don't know with like Alvin Kamara so he's checked every box and he deserves this money Freddie and he is the centerpiece of this offense because without Michael Thomas they are a much easier team to defend it is the story of the day Michael Thomas. The highest paid non on quarterback in the N._F._l.. With Michael Thomas now disappearing from the holdouts list for high profile holdouts for me and Melvin Gordon Jahic and Gakugei kway Trent Williams and Zeke Elliott where Zeke signing seems to be imminent. Maybe not the case for chargers running back Melvin Gordon. What what are you hearing there? I would say watch out for this because the word is that Gordon is set on taking this hold out into the season. I don't know that they'll have to take it into the season. 'cause the chargers are not a cash-rich team. Melvin Gordon has been a good back. I talked to somebody in those days. It's been good really good begs. The land one full season that was two years ago Rolf and the chargers are not again cash-rich team. I can see Melvin Gordon plane for another team before the season starts with a contract from that not not necessarily the charges listen. I was with Anthony Lin Wood. The jet both Mike Anna and I can tell you being a former running back running back himself. He'll find another. He'll find another running back and that's not disparaging Melvin going but when you look at the big picture with the Los Angeles chargers fill in his last year it was Joey Bosa coming up so you got to have some type of pecking order here who you GonNa pay and and if you're Thom Tillis go the general manager of the chargers you're looking across at the L._A.. Rams and the massive guarantee that gave Todd Gurley it's going to give you pause for concern and more you you hit on it. Mobile Gorens only played one full season so there is some positive concerns there and if this one to me really could get interesting over the next couple of weeks they have been raving about Austin cler Justin Jackson whether guys to what are you hearing about. Trent Williams left tackle for the well it just this doesn't look like this is this is GonNa work for the two sides. I mean clearly there are teams calling the redskins about Trent Williams availability and trade to be Bill O'Callaghan their veteran coach. He certainly is panicking somewhat. Remember when certain wings is on the field when the top two or three left tackle football. Who did they draft in the first round this year? dwayne has quarterback a typical pocket quarterback if we ask them to get on the field ending this year it's not going to be good even though they they just signed Donald Penn without Williams air and I think they got problems and I think he also is trading this one. This one is really difficult from a standpoint. You can have a disagreement agreement over money at some point reasonable minds can figure out solution if he doesn't trust the organization in the medical department. That's a tough bridge across I. I'm just GONNA put it plainly in troy wounds not there. I I don't see Jay route led a lesson passage. That's how good he is. As all willy noted biggest story of Redskins camp time to check in on the defending Super Bowl Champs at camp in Foxborough Massachusetts that super bowl winning defense interns largely largely intact Starters Return Way T._V. Twelve speaking for the First Time Today a fixture at Patriots Camp Gamp Tom Brady and also Mike Reese who joins us live so Mike. This is the first time we've heard from Tom Brady in camp. How is he approaching this year ear differently well susie picture this scene after practice today about fifteen minutes after it was over very few players out in the field but a quarterback who turns forty two on Saturday with still out on the field and he was working on throwing the football and then having a teammate come charging toward him with a blocking pad and then hitting him this ties into something Brady worked on this off season? He said he wanted to include his to improve his strength because he wants to be able to absorb hits is better you listen to them. Talk Susie you watch him out in the practice field and it's clear the competitive fire still burns. I have a great time. I mean football's. I love the sport <hes> you know. I love playing it since I was a kid. I think you're not hard for me to imagine doing life. <hes> you know I love playing ball. So you know still be out here at forty once you know soon to be forty two without Rob Gronkowski. How much more significant does it feel this yeah yeah? It's I mean it's he's a great player in to replace great players. You know that's it's not like you. Just pick another one off the tide entry. You Know Oh you can't just go back. You guys come in and want to put the work in to try to contribute in between the guys we have out here now which has been in Matt Stephen Ryan Mine is Oh lance who we got. Those guys are trying to do everything they can do so they're all new players so we got to figure out how to get them used up to to speak to what we're what our expectations are the level of competition on a daily basis. We got a very good defensive here. You know where those guys are challenging us on on every day. It's hard to complete passes on our secondary. That's just the reality so it's actually great work for offense to see how we measure up against a very good defense and Tom Days like today our frustrating for us. This is a rare situation for Brady and that he enters the last year of his contract. He was asked how he he feels about going year to year at this point in his career and he said you know what we're all day to day. He said his approach is just to be the best player he can be today and he said the rest I should take care of itself. That's all I can think of to is you are definitely all day today right. Thanks Mike is always the hall of fame officially getting eight Hugh members on on Saturday this year heavy class four defensive backs getting inducted into can't the most ever in a single class. Today we are shining the spotlight on quarterback. Ty Law Law played fifteen seasons in the N._F._l.. With Patriots jets chiefs broncos. He spent ten seasons in New England where his thirty six interceptions is his time with Raymond claim war for most anti history. He also won three superbowls all with the Patriots. What's your tyler memory today? Today was one of the days I made the phone call to bill parcells who was the New England patriots coach when they drafted tile on nine hundred ninety five and he said in one thousand nine hundred sixty culture after the guy my name Marvin Harrison and he can remember being midfield before a game between the Colson Patriots and call and tile all over and pointing Marvin Harrison. He says you see over there for the next ten years. You'll be covering him. You better get the job done. You'd better get up in his face and guess what as parcells pointing out. He says all the pass interference stuff that we're still talking about today. It all started with ty law as we know eventually competition committee headed by former close G._M.. Bill Polian crackdown on on pass on the contact with the receiver as a result of what ty law would do as Bill parcells once instructed against Marvin Harrison and I was teammates with Tarlo New England patriots and I remember there finally playing against the Indianapolis Colts and it seemed like every year in the A._F._C. Championship game and that was is the main complaint he literally changed changed the way the game is being played. Today I mean think about that for a player to have that type of impact where the game is totally only change all because of your matchup with Marvin Harrison that just goes to show you I think the respect and just the physical nature that tylenol played a game at cornerback position Yeah Ed for me it was two thousand and five was at the New York jets and there was obviously the big Patriot jet rivalry and tiles available be signed so we signed him. Of course we feel like well. That's going to weaken the Patriots and it's going to strengthen strengthen us here at the jets he had ten interceptions that year which is obviously a great number but candidly somehow awesome way the ball just would find ty law and allow those interceptions were like rebounds off this val shouts but you look back in two thousand five ten interception so he gave a great year that year he had great ball skills as a corner here all the speeches such a great moment. We have more on this hall of Fame Class Tonight Light on E._S._p._N.. Two at eight thirty eastern especial look at all the enshrines with Wendi Nix Adam Schefter keyshawn Johnson and Louis Riddick. Don't miss it that tonight night on E._S._P._N.. Two at eight thirty sister sadly a hall of Famer Gone Today Linebacker Backer Nick WanNa Connie has died at the age of seventy eight and eight time pro bowler and five time all pro Bono Connie was a two time superbowl champion with the dolphins played a pivotal role during the one thousand nine hundred seventy two perfect season bona connie prominently featured as he and his teammates toasted each time it was clear they they would remain the only perfect team seventeen no off the field Bongani will be remembered for his work on H._B._O.'s inside the N._f._l.. But mostly for raising more than four hundred and I'm fifty million for research into the treatment of spinal cord and brain injuries after a son Mark rendered quadriplegic playing football Bongani co-founded did the Miami project to cure paralysis Nick Potocani a true hero of the game and in life that at the age of seventy eight story of the day and the N._F._l.. The Sign Star Wide Receiver Michael Thomas to a five year one hundred million dollars extension through twenty twenty four today deal contained sixty one a million guaranteed makes Thomas the league's highest-paid wide out at twenty million per year a new money he is now. The highest paid non quarterback offensive player in N._F._l.. N._F._L. history as we say hi to N._F._l.. Nation States reporter Mike Triplett who has been with the team all week. We know they're off today but my why is Thomas is worth twenty million per year to a saints team that had a history of not paying skill position players in the paint and breezy era well susie he had a lot more leverage than guys like Jimmy Graham and Brandin cooks through the saints somewhat felt were expendable and they can use those resources and other areas is not only as Thomas a special player. Obviously three hundred and twenty one catches in three years by far. The most in the history is catch rate last year. The highest in decades AIDS from an N._F._l.. Receiver the cupboard would be frighteningly Bahir without him <hes> he had ninety catches more than any receiver or tied riding on this team last year and he's especially valuable that drew brees at age forty because he catches a lot of those shorter in intermediate routes in traffic and beyond the obvious I mean why was it's so important to get this deal done quickly well. You've got the wide receiver landscape around the N._F._l.. Obviously I think this would have been more complicated. If Julio Jones had gone first because Julio Jones will probably raise this bar even higher but I think they settled into a nice round number twenty twenty million dollars per year one hundred million dollars total exact same numbers they settled with drew brees at in two thousand and twelve under similar circumstances kipling reporting warning on the biggest news of the day thank you Mike drew brees Michael. Thomas have been among most productive quarterback receiver tandems over the last three seasons brees has completed completed three hundred and fifteen passes the Thomas which is the most in the league during that time Big Ben and former steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown come in at number two with three hundred two receptions and rounding out the top three Matt Ryan and Julio Jones who have two hundred eighty three Damian big big big fan of wide receivers throughout the show so we we wanted you to rank the top duos go from five to one quarterback of course we're going to have the wide receivers but here we go so listen number five and number four. I want to start with this duo right here. Shawn Watson and De'andre Hawks. I think this this dual has a chance to elevate as they move forward that big thing about these Shawn Watson won the best all three quarterbacks in the national football league and Shawn Watts in the Andrea Hopton to like he's been regardless of what the quarterback situation. He's always put up very very productive numbers. The biggest issue with the Houston Texas makes sure that it can protect <hes> Shawn Watson can get off of this group might elevate elevate up a little bit more number. Four lists doesn't get much more reliable than Tom Brady And then number one wanna go with Mattie icing Julio Jones. I mean these guys when I talk when you talk about greatness greatness to me is over a period of time. These guys have been doing. It seemed like years now where they've been putting up prolific numbers I mean we all know about the Super Bowl where they you you know where they dropped the ball with that but outside of that I mean these guys had been maybe the gold standard as far as quarterback while she duels in the National Football Bowling okay mic well. What would you say go ahead? Let me I would say stick with the offensive line going. How can you take this guy right here and put up there? I mean we're talking about Tom Brady of the greatest player in the history of our sport. I don't care if it's Julian Edelman kaeding whoever he's with. It's Tom Brady and then everybody else so I would start there by saying whoever you pair Tom Brady is but we're not talking but this is not a court met lives quarterback and receive a part of being a great quarterback is making whoever you're with better so that's why I would put him one and the only thing I would change here is I would put Matt Ryan Who Jones above freezing Thomas. It's close but Matt Ryan Julia Jones. We were in rural just two years ago and if that defense didn't have the injuries that they did. They may have been back there. Mahomes tyreek Hill very interesting thing I would leave him at number two big concern obviously is you know tyreek Hill. Can we trust them off. The field will he remain eligible for entire season year in and a year out but the homes to me. He has a chance to be the next Tom Brady of the screw and if we're talking about three years from now I think the home will be up there and hopefully he'll sleep still be with him. In the last changes. I'm going to take Aaron Rodgers and the Vodka Adams taking nothing away from the Augury Hopkins. I think he's a great rate free wide receiver but again to me reading. This is about mickey players around you better Aaron. Rodgers is a great quarterback. He'll make the volumes <hes> better. I still rotate hopkins but I can't take watson over Aaron Rogers. I think I might have slipped in that rivers Allen Combo for who into into that ended up five somewhere. I thought about this one long harbour. They've been really really really good but get Mike likes lists. Okay Ma as far as my listeners. It's almost like who you going to take out. It's it's really really hard with all. All of these guys deserved it but as far as my listeners heard my biggest focal point was <hes> chemistry Gaza who played together who had head will report together so somebody guys like Baker Mayfield Odell Beckham Julia. It's all potential it's April but we don't know what it's going to materialize. I was into Derek Carr Antonio Brown. We don't know right now. What's great about our sport? As spans of football as we all are in five years. We're talking about Baker. Mayfield Andrew Luck Patrick mahomes like the next iteration of quarterbacks. It's so exciting and dynamic. There's so many great young players hopefully tyreek hill turns into all-time great t y Whitehill best days are still ahead of him so there's a lot of great players here with great futures as well. You know nothing against Dow sexy. The offensive line is the wide receiver right gets you fired up. Where'd you won that game? Ah Women famous right antelopes calf injury continues to linger still sitting out practice head coach Frank Frank Reich explaining his star quarterback isn't ready to take the next step. The nagging calf injury has bothered locked for the past three months. There's luck I've had images x-rays and everything and my Achilles is not an extra risk. There is no terror swelling in there or anything that's indicated <hes> but so it's it's a calf strain and we're on our feet a lot and I know to be the best quarterback. I WANNA be to help this team like I want to help them. I I can't can't be I'm not looking for average and if I'm going out here with pain I'll the average I feel like an average quarterback and I'll I'll be an average quarterback. That's not good enough for me. That's not good enough for this club. This is scary. How concerned should we be is is sales good from Andrew respective perspective in that in that same presser he said he had emotional scars from not being honest and transparent going back to two thousand fifteen when he had to shoulder injuries that lacerated kidney not communicating those things Sunday night he went to frank right the colts head coach and said this is not right? I need a couple more days and I can verify Chris. I Ballard the general manager. The X._M.. Is Not suggest that this is long term. They don't WanNa mess with it. They were aware spring as they mentioned that Kevin Durant in the N._B._A.. N._B._A. had a calf injury turn Achilles. They're saying these M._R._I.'s show no threat of that. They're going to be careful with this guy. I think Andrew being honest about it and communicating it. He missed a whole postseason two thousand seventeen. He's not going to let that happen again. See if I'm the front office a coach this I'm ecstatic to be honest with you because most players a program to fight through if fight through these injuries but the fact that Andrew Luck and said you know what I'm the franchise we go as I ago and if I'm not right why put myself in harm's way that could jeopardize organization so to me like I would applaud Andrew Luck for for for you know for coming forward and say you know what I need some time to really get this thing right calf injuries though are tricky. It's not a an injury that is always predictable or sometimes they linger and as a quarterback you through with your legs and lower body injury for him so look it still late July. They're still playing time but it's an ideal body part for quarterback to have half an ultra. Ultra cautious sounds pretty good right now more news from around the League N._F._l.. Nation on location replacing Antonio Brown and Levy on bill might just come down to the Pittsburgh steelers defense. The quarterback Ben Rothlisberger likes the sound of that big. Ben said the D has been flying flying around all training camp faster than he's seen in a long time all eleven players to the football every play and I just spoke with defensive tackle John Hargrave he told homey his defensive line should be the best in the N._F._l.. By seasons then we just have to show it he said and right behind him as first round linebacker Devin Bush the early returns is on him have been very positive already. He's earned starters reps with Odell Beckham Junior on board the expectations for this Brown's offense or sky hi and no it hasn't always been perfect. Training Cabinet has at times been spectacular during a two minute drill over the weekend. The offense went down the field in three plays cap with they Baker Mayfield touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry Mayfield told me that the confidence level is just different than it was at this time last year Mayfield's development and the talent around him our big reasons why five practices into training camp it's clear who has been the best quarterback for the giants. It's the quarterback back entering his sixteenth season. Eli Manning at their off season re dipped into the baseball world and hired a new trainer to improve this philosophy. He's throwing the ball well. He's also taking every first team. Wrap so much for quarterback competition with Daniel Jones the number six overall pick is experiencing the normal rookie ski ups and downs but as several teams have told me they've been very impressed with how he's thrown the deep ball xtop on the training camp Kaptur Green Bay all is continue to be on the first new offense Aaron Rodgers has been apart of installing since he became a pro lots domestic gather and browse the has been hanging out with the packers the past couple of days then. What can you tell us about how the new offense is coming together Susie if you were here watching the packers practice the last couple of days? It looks like they're trying to put together a new offense. I mean it. It looks like growing pains. It looks like confusion when they get to. The line looks like it's taken too long to get to the line the kinds of stuff you would expect to see quite frankly when things are new remember they've only had pads on now for the last two or three days so they really have just started working on the run game which is such a critical foundational part of this offense that Matt leflore floor wants to run and he has talked about trying to mesh his concept with things that Aaron Rodgers does well in terms of audibles at the line of scrimmage getting them in and out of tight spots depending on what he sees. He's on the defensive. They're really putting it together. One note running back Aaron Jones missed today's practice with hamstring tightness. That's worth watching as they continue to try and work on that run game and in terms of the receivers behind Davante Adams Matt Leffler their head coach told me they they're looking for some of those second year guys to take a step forward. He specifically mentioned Mark Quiz Valdez Scheduling who called a nice touchdown pass at the end of the two minute drill practice from Aaron Rodgers today although the defensive players thought he committed offensive pass interference so they're actually gonna go to the tape and see if they can review that. Does you know you can review that now back to the tape case Dan appreciate that and we leave Dan in Green Bay off to Arizona Zone and beyond as once again we go N._F._l.. NATION ON LOCATION FIRST OVERALL PICK has not been a disappointment for the Arizona Arizona cardinals a week into training camp quarterback Kyle Murray has been impressive every day showing off his arm strength velocity touch and accuracy and it's quite clear the Murray is comfortable in cliff came very theory offense showing a poise well beyond his years but we won't be able to see Mary run the scheme until week one of the regular regular season to date that the cardinals were run of Annella offense during the preseason leaving the unexpected in unknown airy for the regular wish these John Bell and Jamison crowder in large part to help Sam darnold fulfill his potential Donald had the league's lowest completion percentage percentage on passes in the one to ten yard range only sixty three percent but having belt coming out of the backfield crowder in the slot will help that number number crowder's ability to separate quickly shows up every day on the practice field. They already have good chemistry. Now we did have a minor foot scare on Monday but he's fine and he looked terrific. In practice pokes backup quarterback to Kobe percents first team reps during the off season where only supposed is to be temporary until Andrew Luck resumed starting at the beginning of training camp but now percent will continue to work with the first team after luck recently suffered a setback with this calf half-strength off at the coordinate nick. Surani told me that one of the areas of percent has improved in is his ability the process to play the coulter optimistic luck will be ready for the week one game at the chargers percent does have starting experience if they have to turn them. Percents started two games as a rookie in New England then he started fifteen games the colt in two thousand seventeen percent experience is one of the reasons why coach manager Chris Ballard as resisted trade offers for percent in the past. What about about the biggest upsets in the N._F._l.? We created this pick. Six Ninety six divisional playoffs jags broncos the original mile high miracle broncos trailing late John Elway the touchdown passed it McCaffrey just so memorable now three point game with a minute fifty to play play ensuing onside kick with covered by Jacksonville head coach.

Can you check on that for me. There's about yeah there's a it's the fifteenth anniversary of Bill Miller's walk off home run against Mariano Rivera. Is that what it is in the in the faint varitek Kirov game. Is that one. That's so it's it's it's Miller. Is that why that's a whole lot of saying. It's the Miller report about controversy with that game from fifteen years ago I mean every single United States east end is about this hearing going right now but we are here to provide programming over the counter programming for you here. I'M GONNA stick to the four corners of the rich Eisen show. That's what I'm GONNA stick to the next three three hours. GonNa stick to the four corners best. I can so training camps open it up. We've got Matt Nagy joining us. We had Sean Payton yesterday tomorrow. Show we've got Bruce Arians getting set to open training training camp for the Tampa Bay buccaneers. He's back. He's been retired twice once by himself another time by the steelers so we'll talk to him about it being back in training camp as a retired coach for the second time that's tomorrow Matt Nagy. He will be joining us here shortly on the show bears the hugely <hes> hugely successful season in his first year as head coach last year and now here he comes with so many expectations now <hes> for year two and can't wait to chat with him. He's going to be joining his first up on our program and then a man who <hes> who does not tread lightly when he when he has footsteps they're heard Derwin James will be here of never met this young man. He had an all pro rookie season on on the back end of the chargers defense one of the best in the business already he will be walking into our studio and our number three and chargers training camp of everybody. Reporting seems like Melvin Gordon is not question his who is not <hes> Yongin Gakugei not reporting in Jacksonville for their training camp today <hes> he was according to my colleague. Tom Pella Sarah the N._F._l.. Network offered nineteen million dollars <hes> per year to try Brian. Get this young man still planned his rookie contract into camp. He said No. That's the fourth best in the N._F._l.. Our Buddy Jo banner who I follow on twitter you met a great appearance on our show former eagles and and browns executive said <hes> he should he should be insulted by that money in terms of in terms of people seeking honey however in terms of people seeking money from the Jacksonville Jaguars and whether they arrived from training Tampon time today Jalen Ramsey making about three point eight little bit something south of four million a year which is not market value for somebody of his stature but he's still on his rookie contract. He showed up for work today and I have done this job in the N._F._l.. Network Sixteen plus years is my seventeenth season. I've seen many people arriving via helicopter right Reggie. Wayne would always arrive in a unique manner training Camp Antonio Brown two boys that Batman Mobile one time well somebody arrived in a brinks truck today with the words feel the boost blazoned on that and the driver Verve said truck came out with a megaphone and announce the arrival of Jalen Ramsey who opened the back doors of the brinks truck with seeming bags of money in the back and he took his training camp bags out and walked into work today fresh out of a brinks truck and I say the Jalen Ramsey well played Sir that is that's your that your new clubhouse leader is pretty good making his point that he wants his money making his point that you better bring your own brinks truck con family now I I have only seen video of the truck parked and the gentleman driving the truck coming out and giving some sort of preamble with a megaphone megaphone of bulletproof in full uniform amazing <hes> and here he comes out makes the announcement now did tell me please tell me the truck backed up into position that they backed up the brinks truck please. Somebody tell told me that happened. I would imagine so. There's no video of it. However oh my Gosh I love it th- really funny because that would be the image of what the Jaguars are going to have to do to keep Jalen Ramsey at some point which is back up the brinks truck now? I asked this question as I always ask questions involving shows displays one can say stunts like this one when they <music> are involving a team run by. Let's say what's the word from an older generation run by team individual. It's just say hey it's here's the word hardest. Let's just go ahead and use the word artist. Whose job was it to say? Hey <hes> Tom you got ta. Let me just <hes> <hes> I got a video to hear you play. You play that guy. Hey Mr Coughlan sir just Jalen here. Oh Yeah I just he's here. Oh Yeah I just gotTA show. You may be here. Well I mean he's he wants more money but yeah I just gotTa show you how he arrived. Can you just fire up your twitter page real quick nick the what page now. It's that thing like social media. It's all the players are on it. Get off mine on and see somebody had to explain to him. Jaylen showed up in a brinks truck and showed it to him by the way Tom Coughlin. It should be noted sweetheart of a man hard exterior. The interior is is as sweetheart as they can get. He likes things a certain way he does now. Do you think he asked if the brinks truck was five minutes early Rally Dot oh man the N._f._l.. Baby all eyes on if Ezekiel Ezekiel Elliott's GONNA show up or not two years left on that deal Melvin Gordon not expected to show up today. I don't understand what he thinks. The end game is going to be there. I it's going to be more Zeros. I think so but I don't think it's I don't know if this is the play charger strike me as the type of team that and and have a history of signing players late and you know not showing up doesn't doesn't Work Memory Antonio Gates tried that up to the point where they they didn't he was not able to be active for the first regular season game he was showed up for remember one Joseph both I mean Melvin Gordon Z special player and he makes the chargers more special and he has given his body last year he was put on the field with a knee injury against a cardinals team he had no business being on the field against and he got even more hurt. I like Austin cler. I loved that Kid Jackson from northwestern and may went four no last year down the stretch Philip rivers is terrific and he can cover up whatever mistakes aches might be made or whatever inefficiencies might be had in an offense better than most he can do. That Gordon makes this team better. He makes them more special. He has the ability to have a major up side and a huge ceiling but I don't know if the chargers are going to give him what he wants while he's not there and I don't know how the the answer to. This question is teammate. Darren James is going to be here. I mean I mean I'll tell you. I'm just going to ask him about this. Mean I mean what's he gonNA say. He's a rookie going into year two but chargers I think are going to play hardball with this young man so you got training by away. <hes> Jason starts on the show as well our number two longtime colleague of mine from E._S._p._N.. He is now a baseball hall of Famer. <hes> he was put in <hes> in the writers wing the J G Taylor spink award the National Hall of Fame So National Baseball Hall of fame. He's less talk about with him. Obviously from the weekend he's affiliate guy so watching holiday go in with his widow being the one to give the speech. I'm sure it was his moving for him as anybody else and he could tell some great stories I know baseball for a lot of you folks out there. If your team's not involved you're not locked in. I understand and that last night in Yankees and twins played a regular season baseball game that was as exciting and dynamic as I've seen it was wild pitchers couldn't get an out the Yankees had to relievers the Yankees brought onto relievers. They're closer or all this chapman an atom auto veto in the ninth and tenth innings. Both of them walked the bases loaded outed after the twins relievers gave up two runs in the ninth and two runs in the tenth. That's just your relievers and then the final reliever of the Game Chad Green gave up a screamer of a bases loaded line drive into the gap that Aaron Hicks made one of the most exhilarating exciting game saving catches Jack Curry who is on M._S._G.. Network and that's how I watch the game on pardon me on yes network cheese make that mistake Yankees once upon a time. We're on M._S._G.. US on the network afterwards said that if that was in a playoff game they be talking about Hicks Grab Fifty Years From now just incredible athletic play. That's unbelievable where the Yankees <hes> were down eight to nine five came back took the lead ten nine Zach Britton who you know I like to refer to as the Manchurian reliever coming from Baltimore from Ms Fifty fifty save season in the Yankees. He just can't get anybody out with regularity he gave up a two run shot to Miguel Zeno that still going second home run of the night Robinson had three Miguel Zeno had to our Buddy Gus Ramsey wanted it to go an extra innings to see if Sano could match no with three homerun nights and snow did have a shot but that was the only out of you know could get essentially to start the inning I it was a wild game. De Gregori Gory said five hits seven runs batted in is a shortstop. The twins are not the twins team. The Yankees are used to just shoving right out of the playoffs. This is also maybe another reason why everyone's talking about it today. Five hours plus is a it's a playoff preview so many people are saying sign me up for seven games of that and the American League Championship series of something like that should happen. Baseball is a lot of baseball but that would be if that was a playoff baseball game but we saw there. Let's timer troupe. That was an amazing game last night and Mike frigging trout. That is his middle name right. I think I think let me check real quick hit a home run in dodgers too. I'm Los Angelino now sixteen years so I'm not not going to profess to to say <hes> you know that I've seen it all. I've never seen a ball hit this foreign dodger stadium. I think it left the facility if it did it definitely reached the second deck and I've never seen a ball reached a second deck in left field dodger stadium it left the yard and Mike Trout not only Jack that one out but he threw Max Muncie out at home on a an absolute dark line drive from Centerfield last night so he's Egypt showed off his all around game again for the angels who did beat the dodgers last night and the angels are five out in the wild card man. Oh Man I am telling you folks coast to coast and as all all fans who listened to the rich Eisen show every day on 'em eight thirty angels radio. I hope the angels make the playoffs just so you could see this guy in in playoff action based on needs it. What we see every what we see every day here in southern California this guy is the best and he is now second on the all time angels home run list but that home run Mike Trout Pass Garret Anderson? He's now got a two hundred seventy three. I'll do the math for you. He is twenty six home. You'd think he's got twenty. Six more home runs left in the season. It's possible ooh that was his lot. That was his thirty third of the seas. That's almost sixty homers sixty homer season which is entirely. Only possible it's it's not impossible. It would be a lot he'd have to put the pedal the metal he would pass Tim Salmon for most in Angels History Emmett he could be the he could be. At this ripe young age the most prolific home home run hitter in the history of this franchise twenty sevens correct will be twenty eight and a couple of weeks. I would have to be even at twenty eight. I would imagine that would have to be the youngest recordholder for a team at age twenty eight for a team. That's been around as long as any team like the angels have been around obviously when the angels started somebody was a just hitting the first home run in history franchisers all-time leader but eight four four two four rich number dial our poll questions good one so is a question. I want to ask everybody by the end of this hour. <hes> I think a lot of phone line OPPORTU Bill Belichick has commented on the N._F._l..

Let's go with that first one. You have right there on your list there Chris Broader N._F._l.. On Yes sir which hype the team will go further this N._F._l.. Season which hyped team will go further than season browns bears jets ravens. The Ravens are hype team your hype. 'em Up you think. They're the favorite in the A._F._C. North. We won the division last this year not the betting favourite. How about that okay? We'll stick with that for the moment I know I know how I know how you <hes> we we may have to workshop that one a little bit I won't both yet by we'll hit that and I I know I know how are our next guest would would answer that question because it was an amazing first year on the job <hes> for Matt Nagy the first bears N._F._C. North Championship and playoff appearance in two thousand and ten and winning the coach of the Year award which you get bestowed on you and you're the first rookie and only other rookie bears head coach to win ten more games with George Halas being the other in nineteen twenty s Matt Nagy. How are you coach good rich how you doing? I'm doing fine on your your your team's being very high coach. I don't know why we haven't done anything well. You won the division last year and you you look terrific and doing it and many people thought that you had that playoff game you know all lined up for yourself. You know so yeah absolutely no it was a it was a good year for us. We created a culture that you know the guys love coming to work and we had a lot of fun but then we ended with that that talk loss at home to and <hes> you know we're we use that in the off season to remind us of where we were but we're we're it's good to put that behind us now and get rolling here with the rookies being here last couple of days and then the vets coming tomorrow. We're we're really excited and so what <hes> what I asked this question of Sean Payton <hes> yesterday I'll ask it of you. What is the plan? What do you get out of training camp? What when you go insane when we break camp I want x to happen? What do you got for fun so last year I was <hes> you know really learn who each other was how we do what we do? Offensively defensively all that was kind of new building that culture and and trying to become calloused as well we wanted to we had some Nice live periods <hes> in training camp where we kind of control everything thing and I think that's where we're at this year as well. Now I know <hes> I know all these players inside Al Mind you guys are known pretty well and at least the you know the top the first <hes> first group second group guys that we have. I know what they're hop ones. Are I no <hes>. When did he push when they don't push when we need to pull back and they don't mind as well and so the second year starting up for us <hes> you know some changes to camp schedules that we've done in the last year and just to help us out and but the best part what about training camp is you can put the pads on you can go <hes> you know as much as you want live? <hes> and it's all controlled so I think that's the beauty of it you condition your guys through plays through practice. Get a test to where they're acid so that you're ready to rock and roll on we always talk about improving your one a year two and your two two year three et Cetera et Cetera what its year to three in terms of reality for your quarterback but it's from year one year two with you and your quarterback. What are your expectations for Mitch Trubisky and twenty nineteen so we're kind of talking about it as a team right now you know steady incremental <hes> improvement and for him that's a day to day thing and he's done a phenomenal job in this offseason at being able to recognize some things that he said on the defensive side last year he saw he could see the defenses <hes> and trying to place it into how we we call our offensive plays and where to go to football but it doesn't it just doesn't happen overnight and so so now he's got this four library of plays that we both know me as a play caller of the plays he likes him as a as a player the plays that that he likes we fit it together and now we put it against the defense and so the defense is that he's seen not as what he's about? Not Seeing training camp appreciation hopefully the game will slow down for them and that that will increase his you know his anticipation with rose where he's going with the ball and I can already tell these last couple of days and rookie camp just his rhythm and how call me is in the pocket. It's cool to see well. What about the idea of taking off? I mean how many times we see quarterbacks get hurt on that front the names Garoppolo and went sleep to mind. What what do you tell him about that so we dealt a little bit with that? In Kansas City with Alex and Alex was a sneaky good runner and so we never WanNa take that away from him because I've I've talked to a lot of defensive coaches in the week that you know they're scared to death of that that element of the legs of being able to get a first down on third down <hes> that can just break in and keep deeper drive going and so but we we gotta be smart with it and he's done a pretty good job with that. He knows how to slide not every quarterback news out his life. Mitch does <hes> and and I think the biggest thing would mitch is. He's a tough kid so he's not afraid to take thank you hit but you gotta be smart and you gotta get down. He's too important to us and we lost him last year <hes> after hitting in the vikings game for a couple of weeks and so hopefully he learned from that we learned from that don't put them in all the situations fares head coach Matt Nagy joining us before Veterans Report on Friday for bears training camp <hes> walk me through the running back situation here. David Montgomery has been added <hes> in the third round out of Oklahoma state man. was He productive there. Mike Davis now from the Seattle Seattle. I guess triple headed monster that they had to recall Cohen. We know what he can do. How is this all going to be divvied up based on your your idea yeah? We're fired up about <hes>. You know where we're at right now with the running back room. You know you said it I with David Montgomery Marie <hes> it was hard to put the tape down him watching him and all his plays in his career. <hes> at Iowa state how how hard the kid runs I mean he he's starving right now to put these pads on. He's been asking and keeps bothering me about coach one. Can we put these pads on. He wants to get out there and just and hit people and <hes> he's done a great job in the past game so far in not as and then what a super kid just all he cares about his football and he just wants to help us win and Mike Davis <hes> coming over from Seattle was a great free free agent acquisition for us with somebody that picked up our offense already. He knows it inside out <hes> can do multiple things both in the running past game and another great teammate and then obviously to recount <hes>. WHO's there as well so you know? He's a guy that can just he. He makes you a better a better football coach. He makes me a better football coach and what you can do with them so to be able to use I mean don't be times where all three of them on on the field at the same time and we can do some some fun things with it and and I I just I really love with where we're at right now but who's got the Belco you know when it's twenty degrees out what do you what do you do there yeah well. We'll find out. We'll find out. <hes> you know we got another guy to <hes>. I think you know we picked up and he's about six foot three two two hundred thirty pounds and he's not scared to run the ball and then it'll either got got him from New England so Cordeiro a pretty good ball carrier to so we'll we'll do some different things and and have some fun back there for that bill cow so Bella checks not the only guy that uses him like that. This is what you're saying. NO WE'RE GONNA. We're GONNA have fun with him. That's going to be <hes> that's going to be <hes>. We can't get too crazy but we gotta we gotta be able to have fun and the guy has done a lot of good things from the backfield <hes> as a as a wide receiver out wide and obviously special teams goes without saying Matt Nagy bears head coach here on the rich Eisen show Chuck Pagano is one of my favorite people on Planet Earth Matt that I have met in in my sixteen plus years so I asked this with that respect upfront Vic Fangio not there are is really scaring a lot of bears fans and how he was able to turn the defense <hes> up another notch. Khalil Mack certainly helped <hes> on that front. What can you tell bears fans about the defensive side of the ball with Fangio now getting his shot for the first time in Denver well to me number? One is going to do a great job in Denver. I'm so happy for him to get that opportunity to be a head coach and I learned a lot from last year in just <hes> weekly <hes> duties responsibilities how to handle players and then he's a he's a brilliant brilliant <hes> defensive coach and just really knows things inside out his great scheming and and so but what I think is so neat about you know football in general or sports generals there's so many different flavors of different styles of of coaches and there's so many great coaches out there so when it comes down to it it's all about the players and what we do chuck like you said I mean I did not know chuck going into the interview process. It took me ten minutes Rao within the process to realize that this is my type guy and it every single day that were together. I I'm just so excited that we lose Vic Fangio to a promotion <hes> the players have built three to four years with with coach Fangio learning his scheme and what he does and they it had a lot of success and that's what's so neat but now chuck news and I mean this is he knows he's coming into a defense a team that has high expectations and I just love the fact that he came into this thing with with. Let's bring it on <music> mentality that that's what he wants. He understands that and you know him as a person like you said this guy doesn't care he's. He's happy. Go Lucky. I remember the day he's a player's coach meaning that he pushes somebody loves them. <hes> he has fun. He fits our culture. Yeah I'm just I'm really looking forward to seeing what he does with these guys and there's GonNa be highs and lows that's with everything but I have a lot of confidence and coach cooked down all right. Let's move to a little bit more of an omnibus portion of our conversation here coach Matt Nagy the first things first <hes> pass interference now being challengeable now you can review this stuff but you throw a flag to say hey <hes> my <hes>. My offensive player got interfered with. It's possible they go under the hood and say guess what Your Offensive Offensive Player is the one who shoved off. I'm wondering what your philosophy is on. Throwing a challenge flag for this is going to be this fall yeah well. I'm all for it. I think that you know it's it is a difficult job right now for the officials. Go out there and there's a lot of different calls that can be made but you know I do agree that <hes> obviously everyone goes back to the ram saint game and and you know we all we all don't want to see that happen again but it's it's trying to get things right and so as a for us and I know most coaches as we talk in the off season you have to be judicial with how you use <hes> deciding on when you're gonNA use use your challenge and I think what you're gonNA end up seeing is there's GonNa be some times early. In the you know in the first half where there might be some great calls or some palms or you might WanNa say man Dan I really want to challenge it but you really can't and and I'm okay with that <hes> <hes> or if you think it is for sure and you want to use it and you know you're GonNa win you feel a hundred percent and then you keep that challenge and you'll have it for later in the game but you just don't want to get now that you have the ability the challenge it and put a flag on the field. You don't want to be caught in a situation where you don't have it because US early in the game. That's my opinion. Okay your quarterback <hes>. Do you call them Mitch or Mitchell. What do you choose? You know what I try every other day too so today today we're on a Mitch Day. Tomorrow will be Mitchell okay very good. Did you know did you know he had the chugging of the bearn him because that was a very N._f._C. North quarterback competition thing that happened in the last seven months I i. I never saw it firsthand but when I did see it I wasn't surprised at all right so you thought he had that in them is basically what you're saying. Deeper sure yeah okay I did you know he's a he's a he's an Ohio guy and I'm a guy and his north east guys are they. You know it's it's <hes> that didn't shock me one bit okay. Does he call you Matt or Matthew. What does he call you on those days? He calls me coach. That's one way to put it. I liked that notice your spend a day at Wrigley field coach <hes> and it looks like you painted the black on your. <hes> ceremonial first pitch are do you have some baseball background. You know what rich I do. I did stop playing my junior year high school. <hes> I was a center fielder and a pitcher but it's it's totally different when you're up there on top of that mound they tell you to aim high so last year. When I threw the first pitch at dirty one in the in the by the mound I mean shooting by the home plate and my kids just crush me for for a whole year and so I went out there and was able to throw a strike and you know they say it's sixty eight miles per hour? My elbow felt like it was gonNA fall off but I I'll take it. I was definitely there's a lot worse out there. So I was happy with and then you did take me out to the ball game. Is there anything you'd care to clarify about that. <hes> the lyrics unbelievable I'll tell you what so I have this northeast accent just getting crushed for right now. It is what it is. My players already knew about it just because we talk about some ice cream toppings that we do <hes> on Saturday night the hotel and different types of topics that we put on the ice cream so they always laughed at me all year for that. That said that they thought that when you said peanuts you were saying something else. Is that what you're saying is well. They did you know and they rushed me all year and I should have known. I gotta be better prepared. I shouldn't owned on into that when you go out to the ball game that that word is in there. That's a complete failure. Have your players giving you so much grief for that one today. They're not here yet but I'm telling you right now. I can't tell you one of these coaches GonNa try to put that up in front of the T._v.. Iraq find out who it is or get fired fantastic. You also gave a commencement address at the University of Delaware that your monarch correct yes ma'am the blue hen is and you said you were going to come up with a specific perfect play call <hes> called acid can chicken correct which is a reference to the blue hen in a way correct. That's right okay yeah. We're <hes> we're it's I think <hes> anytime to get asked to to to give a commencement speech <hes> and then you get an honorary doctorates now my wife's able to call me to call me a doctor so I get that and so now I gotta give back to Delaware and we just gotTa get a play in there for the ASS kickin chicken so it's <hes> I have an idea what it's going to be. I haven't personal staff once it comes out. We'll let you know okay so we'll we'll see in scoring plays what you promised the good people. It's only that yeah all right so. Is it just for them or can I request a rich Eisen show. We'll play call no credit or you. Can you can request. We'll get it in okay. I think it should just be called. You know <hes> the rich Eisen show that's what it should be called because I'm Brando every opportunity and it should have been included least two. Who laterals can I do that through lateral yes of sorts okay all right well we we can do that? I can't promise you score but I can. We can get it in there and <hes> and for sure we will. I'll make sure that I declare when it's being called. That's correct. I appreciate that last one for you coach. This is personal for me. Okay <hes> and also my Guy Chris. Brockman is across the way when you come in here and personal. You'll meet him and you'll notice we're both follicly-challenged quite like yourself okay. I'm I'm I'm concerned for you that you is a follicly-challenged man. Go Go visor you go visor and you're leaving yourself completely unprotected to the elements and I'm wondering this this is clearly a choice. This is not something that's just happens clearly. You're making a choice. Why are you doing that coach? Because it not only leaves you unprotected. I got a mention it also accentuates as well leaves. You unprotected what why do do you do this. May I ask you know I just fought in Kansas City I- tons of where visor and then as I got here I just <hes> you know I I started wearing early on and <hes> I think we won a couple of ball games and there's a little bit a superstition behind it but now I'm like you know it's now because I get asked that question. Now I just do it just feels right. It feels it's it's it's just it's the way to go and <hes> I kind of like being different and and that to me I guess that's that's different but that's <hes> <hes> lots of sunscreen yet. <hes> which is which is great and then you know I got the people forget that when you're calling plays and you got the headset on in twenty degree weather in soldier field you as long as my ears are protected on good and so <hes> you know that's pretty simple. It's it's it's <hes> it's worth and I'm gonNA keep it going because a large percentage of your body heat escapes from the top of your head. It's like five degrees out and you're still letting your freak flag fly like that and I'm sitting there. I'm impressed but I'm also concerned. I'M NOT GONNA I appreciate for both you should try. Just try one time and just see I mean it's really not that Oh what the visor of visor with charter visor yeah you know wow. I don't even know I. I don't even know if I have that in me. I gotta be honest bold move. It's very if if I have the same amount of success that clearly you have had with an on might have to give it a try. How does that sound? I appreciate that yeah you need to for sure what percents you send me the visors I wear the visors and you institute the Rich Eisen. Show play to laterals in the last lateral has to go to the slowest guy on the team. I love it. We'll get that done all right. Take care of yourself. Coach always enjoy thank take care bye-bye you've got Matt Nagy raining coach of the year in the National Football League right here on the rich Eisen show up not the like that guy the visor and then the headset. There's all sorts immediate looks like by if my cat is Emmy Award on the desk. It looks like the globe in the Emmy where you've got one thing going one way or another thing going the other way. It's an double accentuation like the old unisphere from <hes> doesn't work well for us now but he keeps going because when he won a couple of games now. If you just get a kicker Oh God they'll find one man and they'll find one that doesn't miss the kick and go on the today show all right. WE'RE GONNA workshop the poll no question <hes> and then the question of the day that I've got as well okay but I think a lot of phone line at eight four four zero four rich. Get your fingers ready.

They've got the defensive player of the year. They got the coach of the year. You know all of that and Trubisky is a hot and M._V._p.. Bet Right now. I just think in terms of expectations they have super bowl expectations that kind of equals hype for me. We can take them off. I'm just throwing it. I'm looking at who is quote unquote hype. I'm just thinking about teams teams that are Brown for sure. Obviously I'm the only one hyping Baltimore that's for sure and if you WANNA keep him on there just because you know I'm hyping them in. You want a referendum on me being wrong on the show fine. I've got them up. A Lotta jets expertise. The raiders are hyped raiders are hyped. Take the raiders instead of the bears. I think he put the raiders there instead of the bears and they're going to be they're going to be all over hard knocks and there are a ton of people that think Rudin plus Brown plus. There are draft choices plus. What car did a couple years ago? Plus hard knocks equals playoff push. Yes raiders fans. They are fired up browser hyped. Did you put the jets there. I put the OUGHTA jets hype. That's fair. That's fair. They have the best quarterback in the A._F._C.. East Que Se trolling on <hes> of the New York Daily Mail saying that Darnold the best quarterback in the division which is absurd. I told them that we can replace the ravens none. We just don't have any. We just don't have an N._F._C. team. That's all what N._F._C. team is hyped. I mean Atlanta he can't there's no. I mean who's hyped cowboys. Eagles cowboys are always hyped yes but they have we have a cowboy fan in the studio single day loose talk in super bowl they can they made the game in Los Angeles is that the bears did not don't forget the reason why the cowboys were here in Los Angeles to play in the playoffs is because the bears were not Dallas was set to go to New Orleans. I mean that was all set to go when the bears were set to come here and that's what really got a lot of rams fans concern based on the way that the rams looked in Chicago earlier in the season so I don't know how you could hype the cowboys although I think that they have super bowl <hes> possibilities as long Zeke doesn't hold out and doesn't hold it against the cowboys if he doesn't what other N._F.. niners hyped nobody's hyping Seattle or Arizona. You can't hypothermia one that that won the conference since last year and the rams right maybe niners Jimmy G. come back. They're not being hyped like the other teams so what so just make it for A._F._C.. Teams include the Ravens 'cause I'm hyping them and they'll finish last because everybody knows that they've got a great chance this year. Let's do it to go on a run at richeisenshow Johnson.
