"Sunday I haven't said a word Tom so. I mean, I'm sure that's what you know some website right now that take that quote right there but. Matenaer, really close, and it's been a fun year working together we talked to. You know right away on the sideline after that possession. had a couple laughs about it yesterday but You know this is part of it. Sometimes, it's just the trust. You know I don't fault him. We had a few too many. delay games last year But I felt so close to getting. You know the perfect. There that I was. Just a little frustrated, and you know what? Like this this time the fans they can hear everything. So I'm not sure if they had a nice delay on when I said and we're able to kind of mute some of that out of that crowd noise and but. It's probably necessary that place fathom I looked like it. Have, you have you sent a note to Big Mike congratulating him on his first big winter. That was an amazing win I haven't yet but I definitely will be happy for. For coach, you know to win the game like that down what nine with just a few minutes left drive down and then you know for the brand. Beautiful. Strange but beautiful onside kick. That Atlanta chose to wait. For it to go ten. And then you know. Double for the brand forty you at forty six for the win thing go Jesus every guilt. Speaking for the brand how about that Kicker for Kansas City. Yeah. That was pretty impressive. Talked to him. Yesterday he was making from seventy at halftime. So whenever they want like the fifty, three, hundred, Fifty, eight, he was like, yeah, like this is not a problem donating just knocked. Incredible. Kicks I. Mean I loved his demeanor. You kick the first one and there's the false start he drills it and you just like Sam kind like turn. He's like focuses nothing to him, and then he kicks the next one with the time out and drills of anything can can he really make three in a row over fifty like splitting it? and. He said he got pissed off that they called the icing on him like he was like Oh, you think that's going to affect me. He's like type A kicker. Michael Jordan made up that story about the Utah Jazz coach at the restaurant like all. He said that he's GonNa have brother I think that is what he's like. Is Mason crosby like that because he's off to a hell of a start as well over there. We haven't missed any kick in grade. He's making great moshus career that I mean he's been such a rock for us. I mean really said one bad game in all the years of been together. and. Sensei game I, think he's made like ninety seven percent of his or some crazy. After they tried to you know run about a town overreaction. Monday. Out of that, but he's he made real steady. And I think he's a he's helped by one of the most interesting and possibly strange. Honors. And Jay Scott who? You know a super super steady as well and I. Think they've done a good job with the whole operation with hunter snapping and JK, and you know kickers interesting. They're they're on their own all the time they are you know in and out of I always give him shit about like you guys punt today or kick today. Just like slip on shoes and And stuff. Don't Overdo it and you don't want to Overdo. Yea. GotTa. Get pampered. They'd take it easy. pedicures manicures out the stadium. They have spots remained they're working on pretty good but if they make. Bingo. A going back to the Dallas game. What do you think of them going for two when they were down thirty, nine thirty and I know my explained it somehow to analytics is that something you guys look at? Our analytics can kind of Louis and I who. Was An awesome guy has been with us for years now I really bright. Bright Guy we talk a lot about situations and that's a situation we have talked about down What is it down fifteen? You know I like going for one of that situation because I think mentally it keeps you kinda still in it he is always advocated going to in that situation because it does two things one. Brings you within you know within seven obviously. which is scored an extra point. But the second thing is if you get, it allows you to. Go. For two in the wind should you want to? But it's just a different of opinion I. Think you know I know that the analytics of always been big with Mike and I'm sure that was not even a question in that situation and we at situations like that remember we played Carolina in What was it fifteen? And a similar situation you know we had an opportunity to go down I believe were down. Seventeen at the time and we decided to go to there and got him to pull US fifteen. So. Similar situation you know a lot of people were going to be like Aaron Rodgers has the memory of guy whom Blah, blah, blah he just recalled game from two thousand fifteen in perfect perpetuity that that's what's going to be said for that. So I appreciate you doing it for the Internet ramp either that other cancer me because I might be off on my. All you can't be offering. Five years ago if you're going to go out, you have to be spot on there. Do you mind if we take a caller or two to ask you a question? Only if it's heard that Logan called in last week. Is that true? Yes. He didn't pass I'm sure you know this Guy Mike. Yeah actually I do. There, by the way I knew Logan into because I ate at that place. Whenever I called your game that you decided not to play A. He's a big Bet Maccabi Fan. He's guy he's a big fan. Let's go to Steven. MINNESOTA. Drink for free when you come in he did actually it was very nice of in the first time I don I eliminated it had to do it. Let's go to Steven in Minnesota I'm excited to hear this because we got a lot of tweets after last week's appearance where they said like I'm in Detroit Minnesota I hate Aaron Rodgers I hate her show because it's making me almost like Aaron Rodgers I wonder if Stevens one of those people let's go to Steven in Minnesota what's up? I was thinking the exact same thing. I was not a fan until I started watching on this show and I turned me pretty decent fan. Actually I have a question for air time we're doing. We're doing I welcome Aaron. Rodgers go ahead. Stephen. All right. So Erin having first hand experience the packers rookie rookie running back Aj Dylan or Pat McAfee have the bigger. Question. I think they both like to show him off. His hat in the Bahamas that'll golf tournament refused to wear shorts to the full length. GET ROLLING THEM ORLANDO. Aided Dylan instead of having the. Ladies in the back that Aj know so well with the sewing for US instead of you know having them cut his shorts down to like a you know super short lengthy with erode them up as well. I'm not sure what the I mean, the is the biggest legs of ever seen no offense pat. Done of a really really like showing those things off. I respect that. Let's talk about another running back back there and Jones Dallas cowboys game last year get four touchdowns. It was like a breakout game in the national yard two days ago he had a massive game for you as a quarterback. Obviously, a running game helps you having a weapon like that helps you what does Aaron Jones meant to the offense He's new to the scene and he has been able to make massive moments and memories so for. He's doing this for a few years patterns. It's something he's getting the recognition. He's Really, versatile back.

"Because there's just things that he's not going to be able to know until he learns from experience. Would actually wasn't a concerted effort. I don't I don't feel like I was looking over and going I'm going after thirty. Because the fact that he's town of player I mean he is very athletic fast. And I said what I said on draft night I. I mean there's been numerous guys over the years but you've got against in our division who you know hey, you better. You Bet completions and touchdowns on early because this guy is a figure it out and be held the player and I think he has that ability for sure You know we get a couple hit a couple of passes, but it wasn't like I was really trying to target him. Either whole plan was to really take away devante they w most of the game you know so where there was a Khuda. Who One, of the other guys on them they had safety joy time. He was end there. Obviously he came out in the third quarter and they went to some more single safety stuff. But. But. There was a lot of help on the outside for for both those guys for a good part of the game. Do you is that a thing you do if let's say guy goes out, do you ever? Pat Says he tells the story about how Peyton Manning watched a guy throw ball guy fifteen times in a row. Is that something that is like you recognize in in real time and I'd go right after. If a guy comes like if a guy gets hurt and coach down, they put a new game. Yeah. Yeah I. think that's for sure independent who this guy is putting in a. Veteran backup maybe not if they're putting the guy sign up the practice squad. Might. Test them a couple times. You see the number forty something walk out there like okay well. That guy. Good luck up here. Rodgers Cromartie worse number in the forties for a little while and I felt like. He was one of the rare forty s a year. You're not gonNA, maybe throw over every single time but. There's some numbers and you see them all the time camp like you see the young free agent, you know rookie free agent who? Has just a you know a linebacker number. That's you know a really bad monitor. Wear number sixty maybe is kind of been a number of. Other numbers like your. Linebacker or a fullback, and you're wearing maybe forty nine..

"Doesn't have to be like this every week it really doesn't hey this week to take it easy. Let's relaxing.

Scores at AJ Aaron talk about how of course you feel you guys. Making everyone. Sound like the mega. Now what happened boys did it together over there please. Aaron you go. Did you see the Gatorade label on the water bottle? I did see that and I also saw still the same purple from the week before that we had we had talked about on the show. And What do you think the reason for that was well, I think what happened was you came on the show and you said everybody's making a big deal out of what drank pedialyte, which by the way is an alternative to get rid has less sugar and more suffer in they heard that and he said Oh you wanna drink pd like that's fine but it's gonNA look like to everybody that doesn't listen at the show that you're drinking a purple game. Fine for that you're gonNA. Find for that for sure. Bring it on. Here. Sorry Oh no, I'm good. Where do you to go from there and I know where we're talking over each other the whole time I wanted to go a non football route. So this is a Tuesday off day for you. Curious tickets behind the scenes you for some reason have sat in the same position both times you go to the show right? Just a brick wall because you don't want to don't let anybody have any kind of Info where you are right now think be in Afghanistan doesn't matter what? Let's say you're already done watching your Bob was our documentaries and. What do you? What do you like Netflix? Now, what are you doing when you're not doing football things?

Are you in Ben Stiller Frenzy did Ben Stiller. Friends Yeah. Yeah we've been friendly over the years. I have a lot of. Love for his films. My favorite Ben Stiller movie is. Probably, a little known one called heavyweights. Thaw. Know I heard right before I came on this conversation about when you say your favorite movie or TV show and Somme hasn't seen in you know it's like the worst thing ever. So I'm not going to shame anybody for not seeing it, but it's it's it's a great nineties movie. It's worth. It has some of the mighty ducks characters. Goldberg makes it makes an appearance he's one of the main characters. Good movie. Lunch has been canceled due to lack of hustle deal with it. I. Am a big heavyweights Fan and Goldberg by the way, not only in heavyweights, and in the mighty ducks series also just went through an entire battle with. I believe Meth. Came out on the other side of it. So we're all very happy for the Goldberg. Don't worry I was GONNA say. Both lost some weight. You Guys Look Pretty Susan to you. Mean Gobert. Different methods. Same, same same destination. You know what I mean different methods same destination. Let's stick with off the field stuff. What you did that dog and that state farm commercial is one of the most ridiculous things. I've ever seen in my life. Would want to know what you mean. Well you're playing catch with the dog in classic dog is they like to play fetch. So you throw a ball dogs natural nature will be which. To to get the ball in retrieve. Hey, we're having a good time. Then you took the ball I believe you throw at two hundred yards into a canyon game over for the dog unbelievable there. I needed some space dog was. Very. codependent. On. Insert. I. Don't know if you've talked to your partner there. Aj, but it's not the first dog commercial have been in. You know I really question is parenting. He sits in questionable things to his kids about the last dog on the commercial with. And I just want to sure everybody out there was no animal harmed in the filming of either those two commercials. and. You know I really enjoyed the time I spent with those dogs and have a lot of love and affection for all the animals. What what you tell your kids. I knew he was going to get to this I was going to let you you tell. But yeah. So I texted Aaron whenever I saw this next commercial with another second prop dog. So the original prop dog he had it was a commercial with Randall. Cobb leads the housework maybe something like that Oh yeah. Amazing acting by both you guys. Always Say Oh they see him on TV all. There's uncle look at that. All is that Clarence Dog McNary prop dog. Well, what happens to that as I think he hasn't killed after back. The Hell's wrong. Aj? We let them know I was joking and it's not. As Just sent him a text after this other commercials like man you just killed a second prop dog. This is getting crazy or something, and he's like you better not be continued to tell the kids. Death. Animal. Yeah I'm glad you told the truth of that story I. Really feel like you're going to do your casual. You know we've been some lies into the story that. Truth Here's a question after watching that commercial there's a conversation a couple years ago Patrick Mahomes Allen. Who can throw the ball further? Pat Mahomes threw the ball out of the stadium at one point over jumbotron or over the whatever you. Then Josh Allen came out. He was like, I'd like to be in that and there was a chance that they were potentially going to have a throw off I know that you would never participate in something like that because it. Doesn't feel like that is a very Aaron Rodgers things to do what is the longest you've ever thrown..

Ladies and gentlemen Mr Aaron James. Hop. Bird call from the boys doing still haven't seen club. Now, I'm not a big movie buff to be honest ought to see it man you have. CONVINCE YOU AJ I've heard that so much through my life goes. To much add I. Don't watch a lot of movies. I spent my childhood kicking a soccer ball the side of my house to hopefully build up enough muscle to kick a ball hard enough. For soccer is not for football reasons but boy I'll tell you what they're nothing like the look on somebody's face. When you tell them to their face that their favorite movie, you've never seen before what Is Ain't got the time I'm so sorry. Yeah. People get so emotional when you tell them, you haven't seen as a certain show certain movie but Hey I guess, hey, does that mean it's just a great show people get that emotional and it take it's a personal attack on them if you don't watch their show game of thrones. Hey. Rosetta. Unfortunately I have not. A. Human. Hey by the way I've never watched. Our friend has been on that show allegedly they said he was a very unathletic for a while the internet which was very rude to them but I've never seen either but you gotta see Aj you have got to see that show. Speaking of shows do you watch the mega cast last night also got a little bit to lake on a little bit sick and fall asleep. How'd you feel about it I did watch a little bit of the mega cast. I'm glad you asked me earlier and let me know about it being on. I almost forgot to go check the other alternate broadcast on for. Having multiple options for the broadcast I think it's a great thing. I don't know how espn feels like pulling away viewers from your main broadcast by doing this what are they just think? Hey, as long as it's in the ESPN family were good. As long as they're under the umbrella I don't think anybody cares but I assume technology wise get thing and a little bit I think it has. A chance, it was definitely entertaining. The game also is a great team and I assume a man that watch the game last night was not playing in the game last night. But whenever he is playing the football this year, he looks better than he has ever looked it his entire life ladies and gentlemen goat boat you name it quarterback for the Green Bay packers perennial all pro Aaron Handsome Roger..

"Dot com slash hawk Anyways something more interesting than winning super bowls. I guess maybe maybe not off season workouts. I know that supposedly you guys kind of started your offseason workouts this week doing like zoom meetings and stuff. I'm just curious how how that Holland that is working out because that has to be so interesting trying to get Sixty plus knuckleheads all on zoom at the same time trying to listen to coach talks in the offseason that most people don't pay anyway. Yeah definitely definitely different. Procedure is both you know than how how normally is just so weird again like talking to someone over Zoom said being there you know in the meeting room being able to write your ideas down and go back and forth over it. But I'm in kind of stop neither do of before or right after the draft because I went to a school that has a quarter system Kind of do the same thing before my rookie year. So kind of in a way like I've done it before so I know it's you know. Obviously not as good as being in person but still you can at least understand the verbiage and you know how how we want to do things. Have the browns playbook yet yup no I? They gave me a playbook. So I just try over there just looking looking through a lot of those past concepts you know going through outside zone game a little bit but do they do just like Like playbook installation kind of stuff or are you guys doing like the strength and conditioning stuff too? Like a straight coach on zoom taking you through a word push ups. Straight coach definitely set like a general fitness pack and a lot of stuff that they're doing terms of conditioning in the exercise. I'm doing on my own anyway so I just I just throw them in supplemented. I'm curious to see what kind of effect this has on like football. I guess it's similar to the lockout year right because we didn't really do like we were on our own then and I mean a lot of guys were getting hurt. After that year I felt like a lot more than usual but one of the big differences that you're though was most guys went back to their colleges like. I went back to Madison. I worked out at Wisconsin. There's a couple of guys that were there and like people could get together. You could go to the weight room. Yeah go to your trainer. This is totally different because in life was still going on lockout. He's he's still in barbells and dumbbells from the local high school. Yeah man trying to get a puppy from my neighborhood weight room here dumbbells in the garage doubt. It's it's definitely interesting. I know one of the questions in my head when the browns hired Kevin Sanski The name I was thinking of was Gary Kubiak. That was what I was searching for before So he was sort of like the senior assistant in Minnesota with Kevin Fancy. The last season introduced a lot of his concepts bought. He did have experience in the West Coast system previously. I think with Brad childress and so I was curious from a concept sampling. Obviously don't dive deep into the playbook but how similar is the terminology and the concepts to what you did. When Kyle Shanahan drink was in Atlanta to what Kevin is doing now that you guys are together in Cleveland. A lot of the concepts are verbatim the same ones. It's the same names it'll be across most systems like stick dragon or stick line just different ones that are across regardless of what kind of system you run but yet whether names are the same verbatim or slightly different they're achieving try and cheese the same goal by just using the run game to create space in attack. The open. Space dictating are based on. What the defense does though? Have you connected with any teammates? I've been talking to Baker.

Podcast was way more. I'm GonNa Start With Him Austin. Welcome to the Tomahawk show. Brethren how are you doing today? I appreciate you guys for having me. I'm doing well just hanging out here. My parent's garage and relaxing. So little backstory to this actual episode so the quarantine for me has been kind of crazy. It was boring in the now like things have picked where I have a bunch of Shit to do and John. Our producer was up my ass about recording this podcast today and they went into video. And I'm like I don't WANNA do video. I'm in my garage. I don't WanNa be the guy in my on the podcast while Joe is in one of his six estates. He's like Nah it'll be fine now. I feel silly for not. I've kicked my family out of my house eight. I'm literally in my living room. I forced them. They're outside like just twitter dumbs and now. I feel silly that I didn't go from from the garage like you did Austin. My Dad's still got conference causing everything going on in the house from like all right. The office is taken. GotTa gotTa make it work so the garage is my Dozo for now. Play Second Fiddle to your dad right now. So you're still getting kicked out of the garage like back in the high school days. Hey man he makes us house payments not me. So that's a great question. What have you been doing during the quarantine and where have you been spending your time? I saw back and forth in between Atlanta than once things started. Get obviously a lot more severe than all the -ticipant I ended up staying here in California and then from there. Just been doing what I can for training. Luckily there's a park a couple blocks around the corner for example like my brother today like did some sandpit work. So there's there's a lot of things around luckily that keep myself in shape but I mean obviously would like to be in you know structured football environment again when the time is right. So your your question. I know you do but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa cut you off really quick and I'm going to say for anybody listening. Make sure you follow us on social media interact with show at Tomahawk show. Read it twitter and instagram Tomahawk. Show join our facebook group. Tom Flock hit voicemail lineup. Four four zero six to eight one three seven six. I gotta pay the bills. I gotta get out of the way now. The floor is yours. Brother shameless plug. I love it. You gotta you gotTa do it offices media this is the world we live in now. No question without those millions of dollars. This show is not possible so I wanNA make sure that hawks beautiful set is available to millions of Americans through these difficult times but more importantly I gotta know being tied. Nba and a physical title. You actually were a guy that out of high school. Recruited to play defensive end. So you'd like to get after people a little bit. That was one of the things that the browns were excited about. When they signed you was being able to seamlessly fit into their wide zone. Aggressive run blocking scheme and catching the football but diggity. Do you have a weight room like if you're going to the park and jumping around in the sandpit? That's great for the body. But are you going to be able to keep that physical posing presence of yours during this team if you don't have any weight? They're still white rack here in the garage. I still get my work and also get it in but I mean obviously would like much facility back when his time but I'm getting in the right now. Working need to but such an office of line question. Yeah no questions like how how much you bench. I'm so excited. Because at Hawk is really he's twisted by honoring this quarantine to start posting some of my workouts and some of the videos of my workout. So now I'm like a geek. What is your workout set? Set up look like is it like your dad's old stuff from when he was in high school or did you get new age delivered when you got into the NFL. I mean there's a local facility here that obviously shut down so I know the owner so I just grabbed. One of his barbells grabbed boom. Throw it in the garage there. You go when you're done when we return the gym return it boom. You Thousand Bucks. You can't take a library. You can't dumbbells like toilet paper right now. You can't go to a store you can't get on Amazon. There are no dumbbells for sale on planet Earth. No question no question. Even a yoga mat is named non prime anymore. That's when you know that it's real they'll take thinks exactly so I mean you're in the quarantine you're training you're getting ready. You went through free agency while everything was shut down. What was that process like? Because I mean like for Fans Hakko. Strange man it was it was very they? Give us details BRO. For normally as you know like after you signed somewhere you have the period where to go go through that whole process coming in before even free agency started obviously heard about things going on in China. It was only a matter of time before you came here but obviously none of us were thought it would gotten to level it has been now so going through that whole process it was. It was weird bunch of teams. I thought we're going to be there out to be a few. But at the end of the day Cleveland Was By far the best choice for me. What are the interesting things about this? Free Agency was the inability to go do medical evaluations for guy like yourself. Who's setting the bar for tight ends? Signed a huge contract and Cleveland. Obviously the browns are committing a lot of money to you. It's a big investment. They usually want to have their medical staff being able to put their hands on you in a non sexual way of course to be able to check you out. Make sure that you're gonNA be healthy for the length of your contract. So was there any issue during free agency of teams wanted to be able to get their medical staff to see you and do you think that maybe affected some of the way that free agency unfolded? I'm not sure I'm I'm in your knockout would've been pretty healthy throughout my career so outside of below MC l. deal here in a a a C low light a safety all. My shoulder wasn't luckily much that the doctors had really go. Look for me so I mean it wasn't as much of a deal in in my specific case but I'm sure definitely did affect guys across the league. Yeah I mean if when you when you're talking to a guy like Joe who has known for his Brito triceps. I Y the questions are going to come up so often. I see you sign with Cleveland. What was it about Cleveland that that you were like? Hey I know this is the place for me. Besides the brinks truck of money that they dropped off at your dad's house but never heard yet and now I'm sure it was a great point. Actually why he's in the garage right now because the gold bars have filled up the inside of the House and he was actually grabbed asleep anymore. I I knew it was such a unreal opportunity for me. 'cause I mean just take a look at all the guys on offense hockey or receiver. Imagine like having guys like that around you as well that will always allow you to have premier matchups one yet. I mean the run game is great. Added great alignment through the draft in through free agency. And I mean just taking a look at the offense is just too excited with opportunity to pass up. Did you get a chance to talk with Kevin Stansky or Andrew Berry before you signed with the browns like what was their sales pitch? That's my question. I get a lot of the conversation at the time I may until legal tampering or once. Legal tampering began was nothing illegal. Hap- obviously through my agent. So I mean I couldn't really speak to them directly because the whole situation hasn't so quickly but once I agree to terms obviously then got to be very speak to coach. Fancy speak to. Your group has tightened coach a VP. Though Sia means talk to all these people that normally I will get that face face to inside the building so I mean it's definitely a strange time from that aspect but I'm just. I'm just ready to go back to work. Won't we can one day when you retire? I want to ask you about like the unfiltered version of free agency. Like for me. Personally I'M NOT GONNA put any teams out there but I mean I was talking to teams weeks before I was allowed to talk to you. That was just my experience. But this is this. Delete my question. My follow up question. Is You you picked Cleveland. But what other teams were you considering really Washington was it the Definitely the second team on that list. I mean I really liked Wayne Haskins on me now. I really enjoyed that. They're they're young athletic group route runners that they have up. There not really think haven't coach.

"Hi that's one to good stuff with Austin Hooper we appreciate and joined on the show yeah the when you hear that I heard him say earlier in the week that it was between the Browns and then also and then also the red skins I did not hear the Packers now Hey you look at the package you know the floor and and also and we appreciate you coming on you good stuff with them but you know he he a priest you know you talk about the floor and then also in addition to you know you look at that Alan Rogers is there I would look at the Packers and who knows what they're offering the P. that would have been a slam dunk moves for the Packers they could've got Austin Hooper I really I would have been so impressed of the Packers got Austin Hooper on day one or two of free agency but Hey he's very optimistic about Cleveland with the joke and and also Baker Mayfield I don't the Browns as of making the playoffs I do they have so many personalities on that team there there are there there after attention to be a good football team it just seems as if they're they're going to be their own worst enemy last year they were and we'll see what difference are gonna make your number two new coaches the fans ski that can make a lot of difference but we're gonna find out really what the real root of the problem was last year with Cleveland was it you can blame it on Friday and just because a lot of the blame on Freddie kitchens with Freddie kitchens though if that team this year with the new head coach does not get the blouse it's disappointment how you judge success with that team last year right they got the plants are not clearly didn't get that this year you're going to judge it by if they're gonna be able to get to the playoffs or not and then that's a plus spot so you better find a way to get in this year there's no excuses for Cleveland you look at that team yeah I got Myles Garrett back offense simply Baker Mayfield you have Odell Beckham Jarvis Landry Nick Chubb Kareem hunt added Austin Hooper are you a compliment to me David and Joe who needs to get back to what he was out in twenty eighteen that's a team with a lot of talent Hey you look at that name me on paper and we don't paper means it's not know your potential with potential means you haven't done it yet but you look at that team namely seven better teams in the AFC include on paper I'll tell you couldn't go to the playoffs because I believe them last year and I got burned actually burn Dunkley but you're gonna see is right now what Ross would you rather have you know you know comparatively looking north look in the south look at the last I think Kansas city I would take Baltimore I would still go knowing but Jarrett Stidham at quarterback I have bigger than judge them right now I would no you wanna you wanna get buffalo in there too Hey that's all I look at that roster also this Cleveland and you know when when a buffalo actually ridiculous they got better also the New England buffalo you can make a case you could make this case that the Browns have the third best roster in the AFC you could make that case yeah I can't the city of Baltimore now does that mean there wouldn't do that mean they're going to get in the playoffs No because last year you can make a case for a top five rosters well they even come close to making the playoffs if you look at seventeens right now you too can be seven teams and they ask you to make the playoffs yeah I know we'll probably go heavy on the narrow it down New England buffalo Baltimore Texans or Tennessee yeah I just do five in their chiefs well those are six and being over generous to the south Hey put Cleveland in their you look at this I have see there isn't no reason none likely what should it be in the playoffs if they don't get the places you're it's a disaster just like last year was the faster because they have some serious talent.

"Though the signings won't be official until at least Wednesday and it felt free agency began with a bang Monday the Miami Dolphins made one of the biggest splashes by agreeing to sign cornerback Byron Jones linebacker Kyle van Noy defensive end Shaq Lawson an offense of linemen Eric flowers the browsing tackle Jack Conklin and veteran quarterback case Keenum and are said to be close to signing tight end Austin Hooper the jets boosted their offense of line with tackle George fant no word yet on the biggest free agent of all Tom Brady I'm Tom Mariam
What could TE Austin Hooper bring to Packers offense?
"Was a report from. I think it was robbed a mosque. Who covers the Green Bay packers and he made you know at least the packers are aware that they need more pask actors? They reportedly planned to add two of them via free agency and the draft. And you can certainly get a bunch. But I'm not sure that the guy that he talked he said they're played into. Target Austin Hooper. I'm not sure that's what Aaron Rodgers really needs. I would rather see somebody more explosive. I don't know what you think about that but either released Jimmy Graham who's just Zaslov signing for them. I would note that Matlin. Flair was the Falcons quarterbacks coach when Austin who was a rookie in two thousand sixteen in Atlanta But Yeah I. I don't know I'm not sure awesome. Hooper is exactly what fixes. What's wrong with Green Bay right now? Which is clear. It's Green Bay at margin only feels comfortable throwing to Davante Adams. Yeah I think they're awesome. Hooper would be fine signing You give the packers a solid possession tight end just really reliable. Almost eighty percent career catch. Ray Can block enough from a dynasty standpoint. He would block J Sternberg who drafted in the third round. This past year in. I mean I really liked him coming at a at a Texas. A&m But you know. Yeah he he would be a big roadblock in the way of j Sternberg. I'm completely with you. Though in Syria I mean I. I think that they should sign two guys. I mean I think that Al Having Allen Lazard as your number two option. The passing game isn't good enough and I think that even if they signed someone like Austin Hooper. I think should go robby Anderson. You know I think that Robbie Anderson Opposite Davante Adams would give them Just a completely different dynamic in their passing game. I think that they need some any they I think they need an explosive field stretcher. And Yeah if I was. I would focus on a guy like Robin Anderson. I mean mark has vowed is scant laying in theory had the skill set to be that guy but he just did not take a second year. Yeah there were some reports from Our friend Matthew Berry had noted that era jittery like Salazar staff-related Allen. So I think they're going to add a wide receiver for sure. But for now I would consider Allen Lazard the front runner for the number two wide receiver job. Assuming they don't add anybody which then was certainly

"Ever been it. It's mind boggling. Especially because the android Washington is someone who up until this season had not really they've been utilized as a passing threat in the raiders. Offense but when he was at Texas Tech He was a great multipurpose back and when he was really consistent as pass Catcher So I've always been surprised that the raiders Ston utilize that more so to see that in this game. I mean that's what to me. makes him confident the fantasy start. Does he replace Joshing Not In any way whatsoever. Restrooms is a phenomenal between the tackles runner. Who's going to be able to carry the ball twenty to thirty times a game and not that night at it? I'll be shocked. If De'andre Washington sees twenty attempts in a game. I do not. Let's see that happening. I'd love it but I just I don't see it occurring. I think that what we just saw from a production standpoint from a volume standpoint is probably about the Peekapoos we'll see from him which is twenty touches but if he can continually get targets in the passing game I mean he's going to be phenomenal fantasy asset and. I'm really excited that if he starts again this week for him to play against Jacksonville. Because I think that's a great match up but I think that as the the season whereas on teams lose this contention for the play offs and whatnot. Young guys like this tend to be the ones that emerge because they have something to be playing for and he definitely does in to continue. Can you stay on that roster and potentially the number two behind Josh Jacobs Abi a great world have. Yeah I don't even know if he'll be there I don't know if we'll be there next year. Man You loved the Andrew Washington way more than I loved the idea Washington but I could just be angry fan. You know like I'm a fan of the team. Maybe I am a little more critical. I'm not crazy about any of the raiders. Backups I run. Would you be shocked then. If next week they came out. And it's a fifty fifty split between him and Rashard. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised cried. I wouldn't be surprised if Josh Jacobs's back there next week and when we started anything they decided. Smith fractured shoulder. I honestly I mean. If I'm a raiders fan. I want them to sit him for the rest of the year. But are I mean I don't know At a press conference he said that Gruden said that The accident by Josh Jacobs is and they said that he he gave an impassioned plea to play and the game. He Jon Gruden actually. This is irrational man. Jon Gruden said he sat in my coaches off his he. He wanted to play and he got really emotional about not playing. He doesn't want to let his teammates down. I don't know where he's going to be this week. But if he's ready to go and he's cleared to play play he's a great back back in a great centerpiece for our team. Moving forward so I mean they're not. They're not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs right. No three weeks left so yeah I mean if he says he can go in. The doctors don't rule him out. I bet he plays this week. I mean I I think you're probably right. I don't think he should but I think you're probably right so I wouldn't get crazy by the deandre Washington height drain pump. The brakes fellas pumped. Get Him anywhere you can. I the grabbing the knows. It doesn't hurt to have them with. How many injuries are out there? He's like he is. Is it diamond in the rough man could be. It could be a big deal the Andrea Washington winds fantasy championships. Yeah I like the sound of that. Ah I mean I if I had any fabulous dion Washington all the way onto our rank gums. We have some interesting unless you're today FELLAS. We interest in players the first list that we have for our rank them so eh color single terry and cream I I'm struggling with this. One I mean so first of all Devon Single Terry has all the volume like if if that's what you wanted to chase which is not not usually the terrible thing to do. It's Devon singled Terry by leaps and bounds. So the bad thing about them is that he has the worst. First matchup of the three. I was A. It's always adds Pittsburgh so that that puts a damper on a but I still think it's only like okay so you dial back efficiency and he still has all I just. I'm having a hard time. Not Been Devon singled Terry first and then Out of the other to Ecuador in hunt or getting similar volume and I WANNA saying that he has a better matchup Kevin up in week fifteen so I would give him the nod over hunt. I think there're through really fairly similar players to just see no Minnesota in Hunt Plays Arizona so no AH easier matchup okay. Hunt is at Arizona and then Minnesota I don't know what to do with the last two that man I think I need to put i. I can't I'm right. I'm right there with the I can't I cannot yeah not move him from I I asked you. I mean I would go after I'd actually might put hunt and last I don't Know Adam you put hunt I. I mean Rian second because he's playing Arizona. I mean he still form areas before anything else like all three of these guys they think are started. Will if you're trying China make decisions amongst them like it is obviously really difficult and the reason for that is pretty just allston. Accurate probably has the highest scoring highest ceiling. Kareem Hunt probably has the most steady floor and Devin single terry probably has a lower ceiling than Austin layer and a lower four than Austin actor but a higher ceiling and like lower floor than it makes sense. Why they're all kind of in that range? I think single airy honestly like from what we've seen recently is the only one that I guess I feel confident confident. In his work load. But from a production standpoint that hasn't mattered it all for us nectar and in he's been phenomenal nominal this whole year and I feel like I can't. I can't overlook that so for me. goes to number one and then with single terry in hunt. I I think hunt gives you a really high floor. But I don't see any ceiling there even against Arizona. I mean he definitely could flash is great like DFS player for that. But if these are the guys that you would like try to start to pick two I'm I'm definitely certain And I think I'm single Terry. Yeah same with me. Josh was like Hell No I. I mean Devon Single Terry in his last three games twenty one carries fourteen carries seventeen carries in his last last game at eight targets. Four and two before that Josh. I don't know how much you care about matchups. Either playing Pittsburgh in New England finished season two which is nightmare nights at all. That stinks in the Pittsburgh game. Two is like potential playoff matchup two teams playing for playoff positioning Zhang. Like there's GonNa be. There's definitely going to be a lot on the line in that game so I don't know I mean for me. I just think that man actor i. I was the one that based on valium you should be like. I don't I don't see how this could be from a volume perspective at totally get singled hairy Over both of these two because hunt in proudly project that similar volume but they're both very similar players in the sense that like they don't need value value to be extraordinarily productive so whereas single terry is probably more likely to get the volume he needs it to be productive and I don't think actor or or hunt do I don't I don't disagree with that. I mean had a couple of long breakaway plays in the last year. Three weeks exceed what he does. It's crazy I mean it reminds me of there was it was like five years ago. Now or six six where Danny woodhead ended up finishing the season as they are be three actors GonNa Finish the year as a top five the top three fantasy running back and it's just crazy that we're in the fantasy playoffs and we're still like I don't know if you can start 'em let me let me actually Guiso hard. We actually guys is I. Actually we have a team as an playoffs in the league. Right and I have Melvin Gordon. Ns Color and they're playing Minnesota this week. Which one of those guys would you bench to put in like Aaron Jones? I mean I'm Ben Gordon. That's what I'm doing to. Yes that's fine. I think we got it. What about James White? Would you play him over them against Cincinnati play Aquilaria and Jones Director James Way Jones so many options Jimmy. That team for me. I don't know but yeah I would venture to and I've been saying that man. I said that on twitter. When Gordon came back I was like? It's still Ecuador Gordon Even Matt. Kelly was like stop it. But I'm like for real man like just how I feel. She says I mean Gordon's been super consistent. You're not wrong man in not wrong. Exeter I mean he like I said I mean he's a player who doesn't need a lot of touches to do spectacular things. So are we just looking eh player. WHO's been odd? Just run hot and saying look. He's so good and it's actually just running on. Yeah I mean it's crazy when these guys run hot for an entire season. Yeah that's what we do. We totally do this. Like this is just. We're taught that only volume based production is worthy man. That's that's it's really like a a hard fallacy in the community are especially analytics community is that you have to add volume to have production and over the long run that that is true but the NFL is a small sample size game. I mean we're talking about sixteen game seasons we're talking about fantasy. Seasons are less than that so I think for a season. I mean. We're seeing look. You don't need volume per se to have an extremely productive season a man. I think in in context of like this year you have to continue being confident. I can see for future seasons being very questionable as to what type of values GonNa get in if he's going to be continually sufficient. But I think for this year like I cannot venture guy like that. Yeah when you look at his. You know his His targets targets and his attempts and everything like he literally rushed the ball for less than ten attempts to game. which is you know more often than not I mean? There's some games where he gets more with us. When Gordon's out and this and that and then target argue is when you see him even get four targets like he does crazy stuff with it? I mean four receptions he does crazy stuff with it like it's just not the only game that I'm just looking at one of my LINEUPS that I have with him in it. I'm looking at the game for fancy points with him. There's only one game he didn't score in double digits now against Pittsburgh boy. Single Terry is playing so so I don't know man if I couldn't get double digits against Pittsburgh I'll pass on him on single derogating overlords against them. I don't know I don't know what happened. That game I only information but yeah that's the only game he didn't score double digits in this league scorn but Man He's he's Fliegelman is forty. Go gotta put him first Josh. Are you gonNA. Are you GONNA end. This was single Terry This week I think I think sink I think single Terry has a higher like fiftieth percentile projection. And I think even has a better the seventy fifth percentile but then I think Ed cler has this like thirty point one percent chance the idol. Think Single Terry. Has It all Josh. which which one are you putting I this week? Okay Gotcha Single Terry. Heckler do what you want. Want to folks next group we have here drew brees Dak Prescott got and Ryan the God ten hill man man. What a group here? I'll just I'll just jump out right now. I'll put in Tannehill first baby. Let's go tannehill. Let's go Italians are playing the Texans as money in the bank right. There drew brees playing the colts not too shabby and back my boy dak.. I'm putting them last on this list. He is playing the rams. I'm going to know first tannehill. I breeze Dak.. Someone told me why I'm crazy. I mean I I. I don't necessarily think it's crazy I proud hum probably still going breeze over Tannahill but I definitely don't think it's crazy I think last week from what we saw from breeze like he still has a ceiling potential. It's crazy but he does and that was a home game. He's about play another home. Game drew brees always better at home on the you know I just. I think that I think that based on and trends and drew brees being a hall of fame caliber quarterback and coming off a forty point game. I'm just not..

"Winstons hurt. Not sure how bad it is. Hurt his hand. That's usually not a good thing for a quarterback and said Patrick Mahomes do either one of those things affect you. Gentlemen in the playoffs are are you gonNA adjust anything because of them. It's winstons getting causing problems for me. If he's out and I think that if Jameis Winston is out the back cat Brian Griffin does not look promising for anybody right right. I I did hear today that Patrick Mahomes was hand is supposedly okay but just like very very bruised and the world says James Winston has been cleared to play all right so we should the concern. I was GONNA say everything that I've seen both of them. So far makes it sound like they're both GonNa play even if it sprang through pain or something I mean I think it's supertalk both these guys James Says Ben not since Brett farve his anyone bend as erratic is James. Winston has been this year here. I mean he's thrown almost the same amount of interceptions as he has such downs. He's thrown twenty plus. If both like it's crazy but I think I think just from a fantasy perspective both these guys they give you such a high like perceived sealing the. I don't see how you can't start an advanced advanced playoffs. Honestly like Mahomes has been the one who's been more up and down this year and more down overall as late which is shocking. But I mean it really is true so honestly As crazy as it might not I might even feel more confident. Starting Winston if both are healthy but I think both are are gonNA find your way. You're starting lineup. I think it's hard to either the I know we've had a conversation on the side. Not In the podcast Josh. Some other people about James Winston you love the beauty you have. How he throws interceptions you think needs to his brilliance on the other hand? I think it's absolutely like the the D. Gaffe. Kevin James Winston is why is able throws nate ascends as he does. It is not easy to support as much wide receiver production as they ad-supported this year. I mean what he's done. This season has been just wild but I think that there is something to it were. I'm like I don't I would. I'd hate being a fan of that team because it's got to be so difficult to watch that many turnovers. Yeah for sure but like prove production standpoint. It's still super impressive. I mean he's putting up huge numbers he's going to have thirty touchdown season. He's gotTa went through for over forty five hundred yards those huge numbers. It's a pretty interesting thing to to look at and see just wonder like Kennedy team like be successful assessable with that can really work or is it just fantasy is excited about it like I mean you know is is there hope for James Winston like get better is there you know. Is he just going to always be this way. Just you know what comes with being damaged Winston in the way he plays. I mean it's it's it's interesting to look at. Has He always been that way. Though I I feel like maybe it's maybe it's gotten a little worse or a little bit more high profile lately but I do think this is pretty much always been who he is I like for a real. NFL team. I think you just have to be willing. If you have James Winston to say like we are going to win by scoring scoring more points than new. We're not doing this ball control you know. Slow it down. No mistakes type of play where we're going to vote ratio and we're going to beat you. I mean he really is the perfect quarterback for somebody like Bruce Arians because like he's just that that huge play pushed push the ball. Downfield Take Risk Kinda quarterback and that's what arriens loves to have and it's been like a beautiful matchup. I mean just from a production standpoint. I mean they're out producing racing the league in passing dramatically. And I think that you know from that perspective. I'm going to be shocked if they moved out. Move on from Winston next year especially mostly. Because I don't expect the move on from Aaron's so I expect them to be back there next year but there seems to be this like weird talk of Jameis Winston getting replaced there which I don't know to me sounds crazy. 'cause like I think it's just that offense brings out the extremes on both sides for it. Okay he's GonNa take risks and with that he's going to throw a lot of interceptions but he's going to have a lot of huge games as well. So I think finding the ability to balance that risk and to do that. You'RE GONNA have to upgrade defense. Yeah before we move on from this Just looking at his past seasons in his rookie year twenty two touchdowns fifteen interceptions. Then he went to twenty eight touchdowns. Eighteen interceptions Nineteen eleven nineteen and fourteen now. Twenty six and twenty three and like I said it's the extremes on both sides. Completion percentage pretty much in the same range all year every year. You know been in the four thousand yard club three seasons. This is a third one and that he's done that so I mean it's pretty much you know nothing else has changed. Just you know a few more interceptions. And he's just the same guy still so I don't know we'll see how doc plays out but yeah I don't I don't see I don't know then moving offer him which is a key gateway worsen Jameson. Let's just put it that way Two other guys that we need to mention really quick before we move. Want the other segments of this show. Show a penny out for the season. Have I said that already. We mostly already glanced over it. We didn't address it directly a Yeah Rashad Penny man. What a what a nice little flash in the PAN that all the pennies supporters? got a week there. Josh to stay quiet let us handle this shy inside Josh about shopping it's like it's The other Guy Devante Parker has a concussion. That sucks. That's no good. I know that the dolphins have anything else. What do you mean what what are they trotting out a wide receiver? I Wide Receiver Josh. That they have one of the best most tight ends or they do have that. I mean I thought and I thought that he likes last week was no indication of microseconds talent. He it's almost like he was irrelevant again. Oh Yeah but now. It's Ivanka Parker out. He'll probably get funneled. You know a handful. Dan pull targets again. I don't know I mean. His targets have actually been pretty consistent. You just didn't catch any of 'em last week. So that's unfortunate shoe. Say He's not for sure out there yet right. I mean there's still a chance no but it is very tough with players any more to come back one week off of a concussion Especially late in the season when teams out of any sort of playoff contention. They might just air on the side of caution so I would say unfortunately Parker's probably GonNa miss of obviously to have him. You're hoping hoping he plays 'cause he's definitely lock button. Start in any lineup. It has been so consistent but But Yeah I think that it's it's a lot to hope for. I don't see it happening it at five. Step Protocol Buddy. Get through it. We need you this week. Need you. Iran let's move on and trust issues. The I trust issue. We have on the list today. Is Tom Brady is a quarterback one in week week fifteen at Cincinnati as anyone who watches football has known the Patriots offense has struggled had their their their weak moments. Here they haven't haven't looked amazing And so Tom Brady is one of those guys that people are now wondering you know he was always Mr dependable right. You can get solid games at him so now people are wondering can they trust him in the playoffs when it all matters against a horrible team you know depending on these injuries and stuff that we say happened. I don't think you guys mentioned that's that's not really gonNA knock any of them out for the week so if nobody's out for the week I don't know if he could be a top to a quarterback I think he's like outside of that. The Talk Eighteen fifteen. I I.

"I was trying to figure out if I'm contractually obligated to say nice things about this. I think I am. I would have to refer any complaints to my attorney, Matt chambers. You know, this offense has so much talent and I don't know why they're so I don't know why they, I don't know why they choose to be the way that they are. I. I just four letters what who is the problem here? Yes, I still asserts that. Oh, Steve Sark I was like, Steve has Steve has five letters Sarkissian has more than four letter arc Sark like the abbreviated? Yeah. Nice. Okay. Yes, I think so. And I do think you know, I think that Matt Ryan's two thousand sixteen season kind of created some skewed expectations. I think that you know, Matt, Ryan reverted to the main somewhat last year. I think that you know this year will be I didn't expect him to get back to those two thousand sixteen levels, especially with Saric. I mean, I think that Kyle Shanahan somewhat of a genius in terms of anticipating what defenses give him and whatnot, but no matter what, like I don't know why they're running the ball more effectively. I don't know why as seems like it's feast or famine what's folio like they either force it to him in sesame or they don't throw to him at all. And I know that situation factors impact that Austin Hooper keep waiting for. This can take a step forward, you know, haven't really seen it yet. Granted, we're one game in. I just don't know, man, I don't know what say about this offense, and then you know, Demonte was held out of practice today, and so he may not be healthy enough to go. And so I just, you know, I just don't know what to say about this offense to be quite honest. The soften says of mystery to me right now. I don't know why they aren't more effective. Ended performing his easy to say here. It's in fairness. You know, the eagles did have one of the best defense is in league last year. So keep that in mind. And again, you know, Shanahan's offense back in two thousand sixteen struggled against arguably a, not even as good eagles defence at that point that they didn't have maybe the same caliber players across the board they have now. So there's something for whatever reason, the eagles seem to beat up on the falcons offense. I know a lot of people are concerned about the performance Matt Ryan. Had I mentioned earlier this week on Twitter that scanning through his PF grades, he had a really bad grade which will not surprise anybody based on. We saw this past weekend on or the past Thursday, but the last time he had grades this bad. He bounced back with grades. That were considerably higher that were at least twenty five to thirty points higher on their scale, which is a significant bounceback..

"Greg Jarrett, by the way, it looks like three hundred and fifty pounds and exact the exact thing they're telling those guys not to do both of them. Did. I know you're sitting at you must be sleeping in the meeting room. Then because you can't you can't do a great Jarrett did and he knows exactly what he did. Right. Well, the thing they especially in you, you say all right when you're in that part of trying to make a tackle or stop, Nick foles. He'd already thrown the ball. I mean, you don't have then tackle them and land on you could have three throws the ball. You could just push. Even the tackled him. And didn't I tackled him? And then kind of fell to the side and deride pile drive into the ground, and it's not a penalty called it a penalty right called it. Because he dropped pile drove him into the ground. And I'm like, dude, David telling you now for the last six weeks that this is a penalty. And then he gets up. I'll come on. What is that? I'm like, you can't be that stupid. So the other thing with the catch role. So we talked about the Julio Jones one already the first one in the first quarter that I did not like it all was Austin Hooper who goes to the ground the ball is moving clearly. And then also I mean, he never to me. And I understand it's a new rule, and you the surviving the ground thing doesn't exist. But I mean all the things that I heard about the new catch role. I didn't see any of that stuff in that Austin Hooper one I never felt like he secure the ball period, and it ended up being a catch and they reviewed so I spent a lot of time with jeans stair tower over the last couple of weeks, by the way during the lightning delay watch. Watched all of inside the end. Thank you know, boomer all the time. It's great. How're you doing? Excellent. Oh, good. Yeah. So so jeans third or basically explained to me what happened with the Corey Clement catch last year in the Super Bowl because he was the referee. Right. And he was talking to the empire after the all the video replay. And they had a miked up and everything and he's saying, hey that Corey had the ball the ball moved in his hands literally it moved. So therefore, I guess Alberto replay reverse a river on during the Super Bowl could have said look that ball's moving that's not a catch because that's the way they were ruling at all during the regular season. All of a sudden it became modified during last year's playoffs. So gene, basically explained that again to me that if the if the guy has got his arms around the football, and I'm showing on CBS sports network. Obviously the guy people listening Kenner status, but if the ball was inside your arms and up against your body. Right. And it kind of moves essentially, you still have control you still have the ball in your your arms against your body. But it just moving. It's okay. If it does that. If you catch the ball, I this away from your body, and you go to the ground, and then it hits the ground. And it moves literally last year. That's not a cash can't survive the ground right here. It is a catch which is. Okay. I I like it. I like it because they want more offense, even though eighteen to twelve doesn't actually tell you that there's for offense in the game, but they want more offensive place. So I think it's a little bit clearer that because even Kevin Harlan who was at the seminar with me when gene star tour guide into it without borough river on they confused all of us went the referee speak. Thought that that was a cat. She goes that's a catch. That's the way I see the role, and he was pretty emphatic about it. And sure enough it came back as a cat show the Austin Austin Hooper. All right. I mean, I. That was very close and everybody, you know, it's amazing. So at the link, you know, they have those big HD video your show this on on the video board and everybody's screaming. My guess it is a catch, folks. What have we been talking about for the last I still, but that one to me still didn't feel like it? I don't know even after hearing all that stuff. I just I gotta change. My eyes have to change now. To change your own way of watching the game and understand the game. The other the other play that I didn't understand last night. For Matt Ryan is the interception. He throws inside the ten yard line. I mean that I'm like what is that? That is like that's like some high school kid out there. I was gonna say. Any care. Right. Doesn't doesn't see the defender? Just sorta throws it out. Like, I don't know what. Yeah. It was a rookie play who was a rookie playing. They're really that play and the one where he misses Julio Jones down the side are the two places that I was like come on, man. You know, did these plays that guy of your ilk in your history, and your reputation and your ability, and the fact that you an MVP, and the fact that you got you just got one hundred fifty million dollar contract. You can't be making plays like this first game of the season. A team like the eagles. Who's who are all up in your defense, by the way, saved your ask is right after that interception. They came back and they got the deflected interception themselves. Right. And then they went down and finally scored. But I don't know. It's just to me. It was just really the offense of the the Atlanta Falcons led by the second highest paid player in the league who didn't play like boomer and geo on the fan and across the country on CBS sports network will get into the jets and giants and the rest of the NFL schedule coming up to catch. I got it. No, disputing.
