"There's a ton of opportunity for those that just don't have at the un banked of the world need opportunity in chance and there is a lot of space to our money to be made in the space because quite frankly There's just nobody's willing to take a chance on these people and if you can determine with some form of data set that allows you to create inaugural that will provide an answer to this question or at least an answer that has been a bank and underwrite and then ascribe a lending practice to that. We just haven't been able to do in the past. I can't imagine how that's not a good idea or not just something. That is likely the future because we're always trying to grow is trying to find opportunity right. Well not opportunity in those unbagged people. If they're truly is that many which sounds like the ribs. I mean i. I don't have to go far. But i work with a lot of people that are against second-generation immigrants to canada and their clients of mine and they always talk about. They go back home and nobody has bank accounts. Nobody can have bank accounts. They can't even get loans so i don't know huge market town. Yeah don't get me wrong. I i do agree with you in fact Tweet from balaj sticks out in my mind where he says a moderately bullish on the country of india. But i'm outrageously bullish people from india and those people would probably in a lot of cases fall into that category. There's a canadian company that i want to highlight here because i think it sits in obviously came across this trend of fractional shares.

"Right pittsburgh steelers fans jeff hartmann here again. Second half mailbag wednesday. That's right the shooter. Mcgavin gives or back if you want to follow me on twitter again at j hartman h. Ertms underscore p. I t. every tuesday. Put out a tweet. Hey you know the drill ceelo questions. Y'all did not disappoint we close to thirty again. I'm gonna do. These rapid fire tried to get through as many as i can. Who am i game. I'm going to do them all so if you stay a little bit later. Alright you pass no murray all right our own. Mattie pevsner from the touchdown undock crew. He says what are the steelers. Gonna dump benny snell and just go with bala jr balaj. I'm sorry i haven't said his name so long. I just mispronounced it. He's you can't you can tell them mcfarland. Juniors injury is a big loss to their plans. So i do think that anthony mcfarland did. They did have a plan for him. And it was to kind of spell as harris at times nonetheless with that said until mcfarland comes back. I don't see any news being made on that depth chart at all in on top of that i will. Honestly i put money on it that when macfarlane returns in his healthy that it'll be balaj that goes then. He's not a drafted player. I think he was third or fourth round. Pick can't remember which they value. There's they're not gonna wanna just dump those players. That's what my that's a little bold prediction there. When mcfarland comes back it'll be balaj. They gets released. Alright grant has s. You lease says already here you go given what we have seen from the steelers. The past few seasons as mike tomlin become complacent in as he now too comfortable in his position. I don't think so if you remember up until this past offseason i believe in mike tomlin was entering the final of his contract in that is rare for the steelers. They typically want their coaches locked up two years ahead of time and he got a three year extension. They put some faith in him. But i he was kinda feeling it a little bit. I don't think he's too comfortable. When you coach in pittsburgh the fan base tells you this if you're not winning super bowls you're not doing your job and he hasn't won the super bowl hasn't been to a super bowl in a long time so i think he he's feeling the heat i don't think he's complacent at all next question. So dash says. What do you think about the role of derek three million dollar campaign and we're not using him hashtag rather die crew. Thank you for using the hashtag sebastian for me. They can't do anything right. Offensively right now and then running the ball. You kind of wonder if derek what would just kind of get lost in the mix might. Tom was asked about this on tuesday. He said it's all on the table as an option. There's not sure what's gonna happen. My question is if they're not using him. Why not based on the fact that in training camp my goodness it's all we heard derek on the wheel route. Derek watt on the flat. Derek wa derek wide. I mean all this stuff you wanna see it. Come to fruition on the football field. We'll see if it happens but I would like to see them. Use him some even. If it's just short yardage goal line something my goodness you're paying the guy. Three million like you said. Next question mendez. Talk of bringing talk of taco charleston is wives injuries. Worse than the team is leading on jomar jamir jones not quite ready so he obviously asked this question before was made official that the steelers did bring in taco charleston to their practice. Squad in my me reading into this is just. He is insurance. If alex highsmith or tj wad cannot play so because remember highsmith was on the injury. Report with tomlin's said that he had a groin is instead that might limit him. So if you're sitting there in the uk if if what and highsmith they're both out what are you gonna deal. Are you gonna go into a game. Which amir jones. And melvin ingram. Sarah guys you got it. One hundred percent of the snaps. Go get him. No you need some dave insurance and that's talk at charlton. So that's why they brought him in. I think it's just insurance to be completely honest next question. Pittsburgh bought he says. Do you think the early struggle from the offense and lack of creativity from candidate system is due to scheme trouble or letdown. What's the fix to me. I don't put blame on that canada. I don't put blame on anyone other than right now. The offensive line. I think it's the o line letdown. They need to do better in every single facet of their job if they can do that and this is something that i said this on monday. I was very devout in my thoughts. On how the was just playing really really bad football and i was on the steelers app and i watched a segment with merrill hodge. Cray wilfley might presume in mri matthews is kind of directing traffic. And i listened to these guys in merril hodge and craig wolseley. Both who played in the national football league. Often side of the ball. Were talking about you. Know what i was saying is what they were saying. That yes -nology harris is doing some things he he's very rookie ish. But the offensive line's not getting the job done. And i was like okay. A little bit of validation. For jeff. Little validation for jeff. So i think it's the offensive line in the big and fix that everything else should open up. But we'll see it's not that let me rephrase. Listen to the cutting room floor with jeffrey.

"With a tight ends the other. Obviously one of the biggest names this season coming up is ninety harris. What she some of his films like when he was running in the preseason you all son see people on social media everywhere put up videos of levy on velveeta like does not j. Remind you of anyone like. We seen this kind of runner before. Where do you think ninety harris can be that kind of a back and are you worried about the number of touches. He could get in this offense if he really is producing. We know how. Mike tomlin when that guy's run and he's just like feed him the rock again. Give him again worried about that. Part of your question. I think i think ninety harris can can be better than l. bill. I mean that's and that's saying a lot. But i mean he's he's he's a first round pick he's he was the top running back coming out this draft class. I mean if i remember l. Bill went in the forties and the center around. He probably like maybe the third or fourth running back taking so that that pedigree alone let us know yet potential. Better me late lady on bail with the michigan state this kid with the alabama five-star blue chip. So i think you have to pretend to be buried not and more and more that we see l. bell it with the jets briefly with the chaves. Nice to baltimore. I think he. I think it's showing now. He was a product that everything around him when he was in pittsburgh. I mean having a be out. There haven't been quarterback you beat beat beat being part of the killer. Bees was a benefit to him. That i think he thought he was the man. He wasn't as much the man that he thought he was in. He cnn now that he's signing to a practice squad for the ravens because two Yeah i'll agree with that. I'll i'll go further. I think nausea Going into it nashi. Harris's faster yeah levy on bell ever was and levy value watched. Some of the highlights of levy on valium what stands out to be constantly. Offensive line was just ridiculously good So noisy. I don't know if he's going to produce what latvian bell produced because that depends on the offensive line right it depends on that line of loin and also they they they have more playmakers against the ball to now they did. I mean it was predicated on what. Ab is going to do bells going to do. It will definitely was the killer. Three killer bees. Now we have so many to tidy got four receivers. You got nauseous. The backfield you know you can you can bring in. You could create kaylynn balaj. Greg mcfarland and i think i think matt is going to use all those pieces you know in a in a strategic systematic way to carve a defenses. I think before it was just you know being looking for a b. in l. bell running behind a line that was it now. We're going to be much tougher on. Defense is a nigerian numbers. But he'll he'll he'll he'll definitely have the effect that's one of the things. One thing excited about this team is we can go four wide receivers and there's not one of them that you can be like okay. That's the guy we don't have to worry about running two tight ends and the at both of them. You're like okay. We got to worry about that guy. We go to a third tight end. You try clump off him. Jerry can make people pay if you're just ignoring him right running backs. We got a couple of running backs. We can put kaelin in the backfield and put nausea harris out in the slot. Some routes like there's we can put a lot of different personnel packages on the field and not have a weak link. Absolutely there's so much we can do as far as the question about tunnel. I think might tom. Let's say this is the year he has to coach. T. has to. I mean i. I don't think he has to. He has to form to a running back by committee completely. You know because you you wanna as you get ninety twenty touches again whether it's receptions carey's but you know try try and try. Amanda to twenty carries a game. If you're in that twenty to twenty five range per game that's cool but if we're giving up he's getting thirty carries a game for the first three or four weeks then it's not gonna be living good towards the end of the season for that kid. You make saying you make i like i like liberalized in preseason. I belied my wife. Seen play for the dolphins and the chargers the end the last year you know he showed office army. He can give you get five to six carries a game you know. Change the pace with mcfarland when he gets back but you. We want to try and concert we wanted. We wanna feed nausea and him as well. Yeah if you at the offensive line can go and you have like. Benny smell can run the clock out if you lead late in the game. Put him benny snow. Like tomlin can yell at him about the time he played. Virginia whoever was and always yells about that ray right so talking about the run game about how much that's predicated by the offensive line. So let's get to this offensive line. Dan moore junior starting at left tackle next to kevin dachshund..

"The steelers do not have currently for that twenty twenty two draft class banking on a lot of compensatory selections which do not become official for many many months from now. We'll get to that well. After the season is concluded outside of that position. One of the more interesting things to watch as a steelers fan is what the steelers do at the running back spot namely how many guys they're going to take obviously nausea. Harris is going to be the guy at the top. He is going to get a bulk of the snaps. I wouldn't be surprised if he's healthy all year long. He played ninety percent or more of the snaps out running back which is a pretty ridiculous total but for running backs snaps and how coach tomlin likes to bell cow out his tailback. I feel like that's exactly the system that are looking at that makes things interesting with how they round up the roster if there's only three spots harris's one of them i think anthony mcfarland is pretty dead set to be the other one as you're kind of change of pace type guy. Potential kind of motion orbit type guy who can also line up in the slot. I think that also holds another position. The third spot though is someone that you'd want to be kind of a true backup. Some of that has a similar style. The nausea harris. Who could actually if they had to start a game. It would translate to the offense better than an anthony. Mcfarland would so. That'd basically comes down to between benny snell and caylin balaj in my opinion if either guy were to be the most likely to be claimed by far is benny smell. I feel like he would be picked up by some other team. A whole heck of a lot faster than kaelin. Balaj would and i think that's. That's the kind of gamble. You're playing here. If you wanna release kaelin balaj of like of course how long. He waited on that on that market. Eventually signing that minimum deal to come to the pittsburgh steelers. I feel like if he were to be released. He is not going to end up anywhere and could still be slid onto the steelers. Practice squad if harris were to be hurt steelers could call it balaj and have both snell balaj. That's kind of nausea harris kind of backup type role because they play a similar game. Of course not quite that talent level. But i'm definitely not saying he is regardless if they were to carry a fourth running back though and this is something that just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I suppose it can just carry both guys anyway. I feel like it's the end of the line for jalen. Samuels pretty much no matter what here. I'd be surprised if he made the fifty three at this point it just. It just doesn't make much sense for them to hold onto him for another year. So those are kind of the running back and quarterback spots taking care of continuing along with the offense like another interesting spot but not one. That's really jumping out of course at wide receiver. First and foremost is what happens with. James washington all signs point to that trey request being true but it doesn't really feel like the steelers are to kind of actively trying to move out james washington really. I feel like this situation ends with either washington re upping in pittsburgh next year after say juju smith schuster on his expiring deal leads to another franchise or with washington just flat out leaving on his own to have a more premier role. Which honestly i think all steelers fans being able to watch him. The last three seasons is something. He deserves james. Washington deserves a bigger role. Whether or not that's in pittsburgh. I'm not gonna complain if he winds up elsewhere outside of that. Though the steelers top four if washington's there is cemented the fifth spot however it does feel like. It's ray mcleod spot to lose. But of course matthew sexton did make a push to try to be that kick returner. I think he's shot himself in the foot. However trying to become a little too cute with the football in that game against the carolina panthers finale of the preseason that is a spot to kind of watch for especially if the steelers were to take three running back to try to opt to bring another receiver into the season with them. I just i just don't see that core being much different from what it was a year ago to other offenses spots of course we to get to before we flip over to the second half of our show. First and foremost is that tight end position. We know hebron firm youth are occupying the top two spots as possible. The steelers only go into the euro or two guys at tight end. But i feel like it's more much more likely where they follow. Last year's model carrying three tight ends in the year which basically comes down to gentry or raider. Gentry is definitely improved his game as a titan in the national football league. the last number of seasons. Zach eric excuse me kevin reiter is someone that showed a little bit of special teams prowess. Of course the steelers have a number of good special teams players but raider definitely left an impact late in the twenty twenty so really it comes down to whether or not the steelers want their extra tight end to be a big time special teams contributor or not for an example running down kicks. You're not really getting that out of gentry but that's something raider would give you so it really comes down to kind of pick your poison how you really want to use this guy so seeing which one remains on the roster is going to tell you a little bit more about how the steelers plan on rounding out their depth chart and special teams of course of gentry makes it on the team. I would suspect a little bit more kind of heavy type formations where the steelers have multiple tight ends on the field that they need to block on any given situation now of course so we should also wrap up the first half talking about the offensive line. The steelers o. Line of course has his critics throughout the year. But one of the things that we still need to watch. Zach banner only played twelve snaps in the preseason. He wasn't able to make it on the trip to carolina because of injury. Not knowing exactly what it was other than that staying home in pittsburgh for treatment was better for zach banner than heading down to carolina and participating game. Mike tomlin's words not mine. So that is an interesting kind of thing to look out for whether or not zach. Banner ends up on on some sort of physically unable to perform list such as like a injured reserve designated to return which would shut them down for a number of weeks before. He's able to come back. But with dan moore junior practicing at left tackle and szucs core for playing on the right side..

"Shop for all things pittsburgh steelers. It's up there right now. it's their of. I was helping out with him some of that tonight because he had some other stuff going on in the one thing that i inputted as we went i thought that ben roethlisberger had more you know. He had a better connection with fair. Move tonight while rudolph had the better connection. With abraham which is not what i would have expected but it was the play that they tried to put iran in the block and it was atrocious. And he's he's like he's swung and missed. It was awful. But let's get to these receiving stats. Iran deadly the steelers with four catches for fifty nine yards along twenty seven fourteen point. Eight average najji harris two catches for fifty three. If i have my notes here jobs to get him. I he had the over on the yardage he did that in one play. I think For my overrun. The steelers preview to catch for fifty. Three deontay johnson. One for forty. Three juju five for thirty nine ray ray macleod to for thirty five james washington three for twenty four mcfarland two for twenty one a lot of players targeted. You have the number. Dave you always seem honestly the one i have up now is all. It was a number of players who had receptions to go into another one to see if there's anyone who has targeted well targets and anthony. Johnson had two targets no receptions. He was one reception. So armee brian. Let's start with you. What do you think about the receiving core very solid effort. You know is nice to see that ball. Being brought down by mr deontay johnson. Dj eighteen. I think he has a nice report. Ben rothlisberger like to see that. I like to see the battling by juju smith schuster especially on that third down play where he got a lot of yards. When i say a lot of yards he got over ten on that play so that was really a pleasant. You know the the big thing that i'm looking at here is. I'm judging this game by the first half. Because of i'm looking at more of the guys that are going to be in buffalo on week one and that's probably what you're looking at so much more here so everything that happened in the set in the second half i don't find as significant in this game day was right on when he talked about the tale of two halves. You this was important if you have to choose a half you're going to choose the first half and that's exactly what you got. So i'm pleased on how the receivers were linked up with. Ben rothlisberger the one thing i want back is that eric hebron play. So when you say that ben roethlisberger's eight for ten. I say ben roethlisberger's eight and a half for ten because they should at least give them a half for throwing that ball. He's not the one who dropped it but the receivers. I liked what i saw. I was gonna say do you guys. What were the two incompletions. The one was the one that hebron remember. Yeah he It was A ball that went off the hands of hebron. No it was it was he. On the line of scrimmage to nause who was going to get killed and better off not catching it. Okay yeah it was high as well but it was just one of those twisted around place. I mean wow. I mean the fact that you have to you know do you. Could you could name the two incompletions. That's pretty nice. I didn't think that they were overly past happy. When roth was in either. I thought it was a very balanced approach. And that's can be a good tie in between the quarterback conversation in the receivers I thought that The receiving core of outside of hebron's drop. I mean there wasn't much to complain about. I mean i can't think of anything really to nitpick yvonne's drop is blatant. You're gonna talk about that. Let's go to the rushing. Let's go to the running backs Ceylan im- balaj had seven carries for thirty yards. Jalen samuel seven for sixteen mcfarland. Six eleven haskins had a nice run for ten najji four for ten. And then. that's about it guys. you think. What the running game. This was kind of tough. They finished with seventy eight. Total rushed Rushing yards on twenty seven carries for two point. Nine average ryan will serve with you once again. I thought the running game. They did what they needed to do. Najji harris i mean. I'm surprised that he only had ten yards. I thought he alley on one of those first runs. I thought he went for about six. Seven strong runs so if the other three were losses i know one was for a loss but longest was eight yards. Okay yes so. I mean it was. I thought he looked a whole lot better. And when you when you say balanced jeff. I really thought that that ben roethlisberger feels like he has a toy in najji harris so he can do so much more with the with the offense. That's that's the way i felt about this. First half especially the corwin ben. Roethlisberger was in there but the fact that he was able to throw the ball to najji in the way that he did and david. I predicted this the other day. I think you agreed with us. That he's going to have one that not just going to have one that he breaks for a big gain. I was saying was probably gonna be a twenty five yard gain. I think dave was in the same boat as me there. A it was a lot more than that but it was. It's great to see that part of the equation there. Because we haven't seen that in a while i have no problem with the ten yards rushing. Because he's going to do more in the regular season they're going to have more of a An attack work. He's getting a lot of room running the ball but kaelin balaj is the guy wanna talk about. It's very important that this gentleman makes the team. I think he is definitely the number should be the number one backup there. You know i. I think anthony macfarlane has an opportunity but he might be more of a third round back when i say third a third down back so i kind of think that those are your three guys. Benny smells not getting any action. He's not healthy. he's not in there. I thought he was actually going to get an opportunity with him showing up in and being a practice. So i think really. It's going to be really tough for anybody to unseat kaelin balaj dave lear thoughts other ryan backs. I think the running game. And all and i think a lot of this has to do with the blocking as well which will get to but the problem is is the inconsistency because the steelers had some real once again especially in the first quarter some really nice runs they really did but then you still have those couple..

"That the twenty five original beat podcast coming up every week in the fall in the regular season for the pittsburgh. Steelers are on that list of favorites for you. So thank you so much. We cannot do these shows without you. We're dropping new shows every week in the preseason and we just dropped our final show yesterday. Which when i'm recording. This is saturday so we dropped. What ins talking about if you haven't had a chance to check that out. Go head checkout kyle and greg. It is a fantastic show in. Also we have the steelers power half hour we've got mattie perils war room on the steelers. Cutting room floor with jeffrey benedict. Also the let's rides. We have the live mike. We've got factor fiction the show that you're listening to we've got the stat geek all on the audio platform which you're not going to get on the youtube show so check these out and we appreciate it once again. We're not doing these shows without the blessings of our fantastic. Ese family in hashtag bad company. Love you there to hashtag writer dai crew. You're just as important we love you so thanks for supporting us here in. Let's get into it. It's the preseason. Once again the steelers are getting ready to play the detroit lions in a meaningless preseason game. I don't think it's meaningless at this point because you're gonna see some action from ben rothlisberger. You're going to see some starters that you haven't seen in. You're going to see. Probably the crux of the team for the best opportunity in the entire. Preseason all four games that they're playing this year and remember everybody else's only playing three and you know there's always so much to talk about when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers but of course the inquiry surrounding the black and gold or ever-evolving. Definitely especially this week with the steelers standing stefan to it to free up cap space position battles heating up and like i mentioned starters getting ready to play against the steelers at heinz field. Well actually they're gonna play the lions really not the steelers at heinz field but the steelers do play the steelers because they're competing for spots as well but in preseason week three as far as the steelers are concerned. It's the detroit lions. Who are the opponents now to me. It seems like the musical selection. That best fits. This week's factor fiction could be from very close to detroit across the border the legendary canadian group. Loverboy remember them from the eighties. Y'know red leather pants the get lucky album. The fingers crossed on the album. Yeah it's loverboy. They were big back then. Now here's a sample. Everyone's looking to see if it was you. Everyone wants you to come through. Everyone's hoping it will all work out. Everyone's waiting they're holding out everybody's working for the weekend. Everybody wants a little romance. Everybody's going off the deep end and everybody needs a second chance. Oh you wanna piece of my heart you better start from the start you wanna be in the show. Come on baby. let's go. let's go now. You might ask yourself. What do these lyrics really have to do with the pittsburgh steelers. Well maybe good or bad. Just one of them. Excuse to listen to some cannot rock but anyhow there's always a lot to wonder about bt ese tries to answer some of the poignant wondering ahead of time so take a look at some bold statements on this and more as we label them as factor fiction. Will we be on point. Only time will tell factor fiction number. One dan moore junior is making his case as a future starter on the offensive line fact. I really liked what i've seen and heard about the steelers. Fourth round selection in twenty twenty one out of texas am despite the growing pains that came with lining up against alex smith. You know more is being praised for his nasty streak in his blocking abilities now. I thought he handled himself well. In preseason action as well there were plenty of negative comments surrounding the efforts and abilities of tooks core four but upon further review number seventy six seems to be adapting to the left tackle position. Quite well i think the possession arrow for the position might be leaning towards the veteran especially with more practising law. Now on the right side but whether it's right tackle or left tackle the object in the rear view mirror that is number sixty five. The aggie dan moore junior may be closer than it appears factor fiction number two. Kevin colbert is done making trades for the year. Twenty twenty one fiction now. Don't get me wrong. I really don't expect steelers. Gm kevin colbert to acquire any more talent by the way of the trading post in twenty twenty one. But can't he be giving it away. Well giving it away for value. I could envision a player or two in a deep position such as defensive line wide receiver running back punter or quarterback to be shipped off to replenish maybe somewhat depleted draft board next season although importing talent is not completely out of the realm of possibility. It's never going to be for the likes of stefan gilmore or eighteen aaron rodgers. So get that out of your hands not going to happen. But that's okay. Those aren't the guys live. The pittsburgh steelers would be targeting. They'd be probably targeting. A draft choice factor fiction number. Three fans need to get to know the name kalem balaj. That's a fact. I say this not because this will be ear candy. Hearing yinzer pronounced the fourth year running backs name a guy. See that callum belhadj. He's pretty good in that splaine for the steelers. Check them out. he's not najji harris. But he's got that's why It's my best possible yinzer. I know everybody rips on it. But i really think that balaj could become the angela williams valuable but lost stands at six two ways in hardy two hundred and thirty pounds but he's also been clocked in speedy four point. Four in the forty yard dash in his career. Balaj had touchdown on his pittsburgh debut and check this out. One thousand nine yards on four carries with a nine yard gain negated by penalty market. Remember he was only playing in one. Preseason game now. The head. Scratcher is why the former charger dolphin. New york jet is with his four squad in four years though but balaj his said the pittsburgh is the finest organization that he's worked for an environment goes a long long way at times but the main point to consider is that the students cannot live on najji harris alone so balaj has a backup. Could be very filling as a part of the twenty twenty one roster hopefully beyond factor fiction number.

Will you buy Routers help out steals by developing jordan. Now i think we gonna knowledge the rabbitohs and they helped us out. He's not he's not that bad. He actually portas always bringing up that you know that i said last year that the bengals winning i chaos of item buddy rabbis fan alabama gets caught stream bro mile. Abram is nause mcfarland kalem balaj. These writeoffs patey the new. I will go on the practice squad. I think i think they got snell at this point. It's all going to try to but a stick by what i said. Stick said and i wanted to say this depending on what questions we lost. I don't think the fourth running back only sleaze steals roster right now and that's one to really be careful about Felicia put off in the live. Chat ilya around all the different cots that were coming in the deitz. They coming so on tuesday by four pm. They have to From these rostock the steelers will have plays by from these previous draft off drafts that they really liked that they really wanted to get that might become available through other teams cuts and i can say that being the running back position as well so i think what the white house rosta looks like even once we wait one versus what it looks like. Wait three not Injuries the different cuts that made you know whether steals will trust them on for a couple of weeks not we. Don't we're gonna cut you loose now. He's going to be very different. Polity still thinks that falls. Running back is not even on the roster right now but based on reasonable. Yeah i reckon it's najji nick. Fallen balaj in snell roy. You know what. I'm going to go a little bit different. Arkansas maga analogy mark question on snow. I don't know what he's what is happening. Is easy out as you being traded on your show. So he's not in contention -nology mcfarland have to go with balaj and the case. Jeffrey benedict talked about enron articles Guy tried men's now in you look a few things. I'm saying imply he could bay there. He could be veteran on the practice squad in one of the sikhs bolts. That's for the players to more crude seasons. He's a big unit to. He's like a big fullback. He was bleeding. Pretty well He's walcott if he makes it. What alana jeffrey vending. I think most of may so Yeah i i say why is it depends on steles injury to try. Edmonds could take that full spot. Because smells on the injury list for a while. But i want to bring up shields question okay. What is the most you'll most meaningful steel item. Thus final fan mine is my first jersey. Which is tae jay which i'm pretty near A k. you've got walks I so i have my juju jersey. Colorado steetch numbers that My fiancee gone. You'll meet went to heinz field but she also got me which is behind the my main manger grain hall of fame signed full-sized helmet. And she'll say got me my whole fang jerem bettas football back dead for my thirtieth so i have kind of three coveted items that that's a hard one. I think we have the experience. I'd have to now love this things behind me. And they count account as one. It's hot. I split those three. They're special for different reasons. So i shocked thinking for about a minute. What i was gonna choose cantu my my little head here. The oh terrible tale. Are you joking. This i six super bowl one most meaningful autumn. Do you know why because the one little story about this Many is that it's never been washed because it never gets dirty.

I have a section in the back of my backpack that can put so many things probably like ten later stuff. It only has my terrible tamp. The reason why. I put it. There is because the terrible tell then sits on my back in. It's comfort and it's like it's i would probably like are probably dot. If someone stole from me i'd be like all right. This is fought to the death grubby pitch broken all. Go the bat and we'll see what happens. This is like life like this is like my life right so real all of it.

So let's What's up Buck dances what's up. The days short passes again this season. i think i'm trying to show too much than not trying to do too much. They don't want anyone to be real careful about what they're saying. Once they can actually analyze teams Pretty type looking through it as people concert date tosses or anything. They're being very mindful of giving the goal is wide receiver. Or whoever's gonna catch catch the football league giving them actual plays that they can. They can catch the bowl and make apply off and also you know they wanna see people can do in space the defenders around them so i wouldn't break much.

"Specifically pittsburgh steeler football and none better to do that and brian anthony davis and he is with behind a steel curtain and also a fine football analysts for cvs. I talk radio more here. he is. Let's give it up brian. Anthony davis why did you hear coach. Gordie it is fantastic because we are back behind the curtain and the field is played last night and you are ever so correct. That's really why we're here. You did beat the dallas cowboys. Sixteen to three and as we you know. These preseason games mean relatively if little nothing as far as score perspective how important they are for the coaching staff evaluating young hoping to make that steeler roster and they are watching every move of that player. Go ahead for your role analysis that that will. You're right. And i put it matter the dallas cowboys the kansas city chiefs. Whoever it was because they're playing against themselves when you're playing preseason football you really need to look at here so fast that real steelers the guys that are going to be out there on week one. We're not playing. There was not a ben. Roethlisberger was out of. Gv smith schuster or tj water minka fitzpatrick for cam. Hey we're didn't list goes on and on but it doesn't matter because there are guys that are fighting for jobs there are guys that are fighting for not just You know i got spots with. They're fighting for saudi spots and there was some i play last night. They'll be starting comes to temper. You better be really excited about number one on that list of fifty six to second year man for pepsi. Charlotte his name alex. He was all over the quarterback last night. He's the guy replacing bud dupree if he that was at the beginning of the game when there's most putting capability than later out of the game gordon. Let's continue on no again. It was three nothing for quite a long time but again scored us matter. Data really. don't care what the score is. It's kind of like mine league baseball that you'd like to win games but more importantly you are there to develop players and i try to use that word picture for all of our teammates unless that is what this preseason is which is also why it has been shortened with the addition nor game. That's going to be played this season regarding number seventeen so again when you get into even further when they're still did scores more points there in the second half now we have really some of those very lesser known players. Yeah and it's really great to see another guy that was not a lesser known but shades. Plateful really good in action. Last night he went out because he got the wind knocked out of them. But he is okay. He was Celebrating on the sidelines. When guys like kayla the lodge and other receivers younger receivers that Taller seven Who you might not be as familiar with your when those guys were scoring and getting opportunities so there's very team atmosphere last night and that was great to see but golly kaelin balaj at running back backing harrison not way can i considerable amount in the first quarter and look pretty good. He average only about three yards per carry. But the line looked so much more organized than those weren't started. What you had rookie kendrick. Green getting some whole forum. He did have a four yard loss but that was more on the offensive line. It's a work in progress but it looks so much better really. Glad to see what you can what you had out there. Kaelin balaj looks like he's a front runner for the number one back after this. 'cause benny snow journey her out. And balaj look. Wow gosh she looks punishing. He's a four year player out of the chargers organization and he played very well as well. So i'm really glad to see on the defensive side of the ball gordon. I gotta tell you. There's some names like jamir jones that you gotta get excited about. He's an undrafted free agents. Good media named jimmy jones. Jim mayor joan yet. See brian davis and i. I also be saying quickey. Rochet and rumbling rochet's another outside linebacker so the deficit outside linebacker seems so much better. When you have hype. Myth and watt and melvin ingram. And now these two youngsters rochet along with curtis marsh along with jimmy jones..

"So i think there really is a competition out whether or not it's for the qb to spot or qb three eight. I think that's Remains to be seen. The thing that gets me. I'm i was excited to see what dwayne haskins could do. He loves cautious with the football. Put it that way. He did not want to take the risk. You could see a couple of times. He was looking down the field down the middle of the field. And you just don't wanna make that bad play and put yourself in a hole in this competition. I get it but at some point and this is just my. This is always been my thing and you go back to eighteen. Landry jones will play some in then he would rotate between rudolph and dobbs as to. Who would get in next. I wanna see dwayne haskins. Actually get a look with some of those better players mason. Rudolph was throwing passes to deontay johnson. James washington although he didn't connect chase capable and then when dwayne haskins gets into the game. Who's the throwing passes to matthew sexton. Kevin raider and i don't know rigo was bussey bussey forever. It's it's not the same not dimension. The offensive line is different. If this is a genuine competition in my opinion you're gonna see tomlin. Say do what i just said. In that is we need to give haskins and opportunity to show what he can do with better players. The question i have for you necks is would it look any different. In your opinion if haskins did get a chance better players obviously. I think it would Having those more talented guys if you chase played pool field there's only so many six four four four forty guys in the nfl. So that's going to help I think as the weeks go on. We're gonna see exactly what you did say. The quarterbacks kind of switching up the rotation while kind of the depth pieces are around them kind of stay the same. I in terms of rotation just a quarterback position will be different so i think we will see these guys Kind of rotating around seeing seeing if they work with the top guys better. And what have you whether or not. They might struggle against the better corners. Of course that will see When games kick but as we get deeper in the preseason haired like guys like juju. Smith schuster should get some playing time. Hopefully pat farm us than eric. Hebron get healthy so there will be more opportunities to be throwing these better pass catcher but with it comes the better better. Secondary's better defenses So to a degree it does matter but on the same coin. They are playing against worst defensive players But as long as they still get those opportunities to try to play with a number of different guys. I think that's where the really the root of the competition comes down to so hopefully haskins gets a couple snaps with the ones and hopefully he gets them as early as next week. Yeah now you're on twitter as much as i am during games steelers. Twitter was a buzz. is the hot acri was just boy was thriving. And you know. I'm used to the we. The steelers should trade. Benny smell to the rams for i pig like that would ever happen anyway. There was a government housing. I'm as michael about this. Someone said on twitter. This is all based off of kevin. Raiders pancake walk. On the on the balaj touchdown what if they kept raider gentry infirm youth in cut hebron traded hebron and as a wow. I'm gonna ask michael about that. What do you think about that heartache. You know what that is interesting because it did pop into my mind for a second bud fit the system. Way better like eric. Hebron is not a blocker. and that's what this system thrives on they never made any sense when they signed To begin with except for the fact that he came way cheaper than anyone expected the problem is they added all those void years to his deal. This offseason i think that might throw a wrench in things. I'm not sure if they cut them all sudden all this money comes back onto the books this year or how that works. So i i think contractually. That's a bit of a bit of a hurdle. They'd have to jump eric ronnie. He's really just a big wide receiver. we saw him struggle so much trying to block last year. And all these reports coming out that zach drink gentry's been one of the best tight ends in camp especially when it comes to blocking kevin rader putting guys on their butts pat firm youth catching everything and then holding in all these drills. of course. he's out injured today. But still those three guys are probably fifty offense better. So if that's the the group steelers go with. I wouldn't be surprised by it but there might be some financial repercussions on this year. If they gave eric ronnie acts so hopefully they find figure out a way to train them. I i don't. I don't really know if there's any value there either but the fit is just never really made much sense since day one. Yeah that was just one of those weird things. well actually. That doesn't that doesn't there's onto crazy. That's not any snow for a first job. Picks but Okay the next time we talk actually after the next game. The eagles game. What do you want to see. This is the last topic for alleged. Go what did you want to see the steelers improve upon. And let's assume that. Ben rothlisberger is still not going to play in that week. One preseason game. I figure he's not gonna play until the week to which is the third game for the steelers but if he's going to play what do you want to see improve in any way shape or form for the steelers next week when they go to philly. Oh that's a good question. I think offensively. I wanna see them. Try to establish the run a little bit more. I think they're pretty successful at it today. But nothing. Really kind of eye-popping. They're able to turn the trains over but some bigger plays. That would be nice so that would be more double team blocking getting off to the second level in allowing the running backs to hit the secondary before they get touched. That would be huge especially if they're able to kind of get on that sort of chemistry level before we even get to week one. Dowd be really nice defensively. I think the big one is just the defensive backs covering better They got burned a ton of times as well as the inside linebackers with the old problem of being out on slots running backs just getting picked apart. I'm very worried about spelling yuji three. I'm almost at the point. Where were i'm thinking to myself. Could buddy johnson be the starter in week on because he was the other linebacker. That jazz tabasco. Hopefully those problems can end. When devon bush hits a field. But i wanna see those those second level players on the defense cover a little bit better. That is really the key to the end of this. Preseason and obviously Once the regular season they better have that ironed out. absolutely well. michael mr captain. Blue check mark. I thank you very much for your time. Hope enjoy your weekend..

"All the rest of the is not viable proposition. So yeah that. That's sort of the background to that. That's why i recommend it could be very soon to maybe holding on najji and while they hold that low the pros because now they're on naughty people in this roster and on the other side and the cowboys right so i'm not saying they're gonna go out and be thuggish. These players aren't in the nfl culture. That coming in and if they wanna put a big league on nagishi done they would want to hammer to to to be in the news. And so i got. I took him out right. You gotta holding back because you don't really trust the opposition. What they're going to do and to into the regular season when you're gonna be going one hundred percent and also if you put -nology then he doesn't like he doesn't run one hundred percent. You're gonna get injured as well so all of those. So i say about play it all right. Tommy tell me about my kaelin. Balaj argument. Say i want to say what he can do. Because we already have seen giant samuels. And i'm a big fan of samuel is on his way as a human and football pile We've got benny snow. The mcfarland's air as well. Now how does Kyle balaj crack that roster like it's similar thing bossy. He's only at saw lukin if he can Create some havoc than he. He will get these coaches token again. Nice is another. What are your thoughts on that. Yeah i think there was reports the other night after the training camp didn't follow in burqa forty. Or what have you. I mean balaj is fighting. Samuels i really saw the bottom of the rose today An i could see them. Putting balaj on that practice at sixteen wise you can have moved veteran play so you know maybe a riot You know this is the one for balaj to step up. This is also the soda gain. The balaj could be playing for a spot on another tamen Game way do have those you know third and fourth street running backs play And you get a feeling whether the scrape the roster oh not all at a minimum. They allow you to rest you guys like. You nausea harasses Anthony Fallen does play a bit in this game. I think he does need to get a chance to go against. Nfl so spayed Timing in quality even though that we are talking about again that's gonna be largely played by the undrafted the practice squad guys the sudden fold stringers So yeah i think. I think that's sort of the situation with kaelin balaj. Yeah i mean. I should say what he shows up. Because you know we've got a little bit better know what he's gonna do before he's going to make the team. So yeah what. It's just that this running back we all want is I think we know you're number two the snow and then the the the counterpart maybe the trick style will be mcfarland. And if the carrier fourth guy for special teams to maybe balaj can be On defensive guy and special teams not to run the ball. I just think it's like a lot of these guys as well like they could. Easily don't maintain birthdays pies. I've already said bossy balaj. Why maintain however they're not put a good bit of type one price as in the mess what it is. I'm not saying they're going to be one hundred percents it. I'm just saying in this game. This is a perfect game for them. To put everything out there and go why cannot apply full with the steelers united and make people nervous. And it's going to make these other pies bet in front of them ride if it takes back right. Y be sitting there sweating. Maybe that's my job. And he took one back and the fans will to the fans get behind bussey third third and said this one is is solely based on and i wanna like this one. If he does play really well is. This is the defense This it'd be like to skip it last year. Because nine andy martin martino more him as a player about i love the number fifty one. I love how what. James vary with the steelers. And a what the name buddy johnson. I don't think he's going to be wearing fifty one during the season. What are you doing to me. I'll tell right serna's wearing a fifty one at the moment. And the had that further sheet the other day in triton had the fifty. One on auditing. And i don't. I didn't see one of buddy. Johnson's action that's gonna knees number. Come come the season. Sorry we'll scratch him off in a number. What number. so he's gonna. Mike detainment intrigued another new number thing. That's going to be the case. I think try tone is gonna play with fifty one. Didn't didn't onto skip away fifty one. Well well maybe. I'll just got something fifty one. Maybe i'm pretty sure he did. I could be completely wrong. So the holiday on that was that always gong like echoes body. What your name's body. You're gonna be the coolest name the wealthy. He's old school. He's got like the neck pad. Yeah yeh for his was picking up on the field and then you know even got to see him get Get a cycle force. Bombo and get the steel. Offend exhauted really hamill. One of those guys are in the with the cowboys dan. It's another gone at list. Will be debt. Bonds belying and bush is a a studio for the future And if he doesn't wear fifty one because they tried to a fair enough. We'll put something else. But i just thought he'd be now the interesting guy in this another guy. We drafted to dry. He'll drop to correct. Yeah yeah fourth-round. Yeah okay a. i'll lock it..

"Fairly certain very ferry fairly. I guess that's a good way to say it or not that you know the steelers are not looking to have an you know someone who would even bump ahead of alex minutes unless there was a problem after scenes went on. You know. put that he's gonna come into camp d day one he's going to be that guy opposite at c. j. What so you've got to see if if increments that i mean that's not. It's not a big characteristic thing for the steelers to bring in someone you know. At his age he's thirty two. You know at this point of his career on a really on a big deal. It sounds more like a smaller contract. Possibly just one year. You know veteran minimum or or small two year to year. Deal where you can push some of the money into the second year things like that. It's just really interesting. I don't really know what they're going to do that. But i mean you say about. He had the injury struggles. Did have a four year stretch from twenty fifteen to two thousand eighteen where he didn't miss a game. Yeah it i mean so. It was early in his career and then it and then it was the last couple seasons where he struggled with that. So it really league is gonna come down to. Is he going to to be willing to do what the steelers want him for. That's what to me. That's that's the alternate thing right so we're going to spend it on a ton of time on this. That's not what the main crux of this podcast is all about. We're trying to get you ready for training. Camp if melvin ingram or someone else is a part of that but that's great if not worry we're going to plough ahead as if he's not we'll put it that way. And we are going to be predicting the fifty three man roster pre-training cabinet david. I've done this periodically throughout the off season. We did it before we and then we did it after the draft did it after free agency and here we go before training camp litho lead up. We're gonna go through. The offense and defense will do offense in the first break. I don't think there's as many questions in terms of the fifty three in the on the on the offensive side. That i could be wrong. And then we'll get a defense and special teams in the second half to round out the show. So dave. are you ready. I am ready all right so this this article will be running later in the week in will attach the podcast to it as well. But let's look at the quarterback position We all know the depth chart. Datum let you go first In who do you have making the fifty three men roster of the quarterback position. How many players in. Who are those players. Well i've. I've got the typical three quarterbacks and i have of course. Btr benjamin tundras burger mason. Rudolph is the number two. And i might not be the most popular opinion. But i have josh. Dobbs is my number three. Because that's who's going to be there until i see something otherwise to make me change my mind ends. It's what we're going to do here is. I'm gonna then say if. I agree with dave or disagree dave and in this case i do disagree with one of those players. I have rothlisburger. Rudolph is one too. I have dwane haskins making the team in. I know that. There's it's a very low risk Dwayne haskins we all know that but we know that joshua dobbs can play but we also know that joshua is a player that was traded last season so he wasn't even valued enough to keep him on the roster twain haskins e bring him in barring him completely falling flat on his face which could happen by the way in the preseason i think twain haskins makes the team. Maybe they trade joshua dobbs again. I'm not sure it depends on what else is out there but so we both have three players. You have dobbs. Let's go to running back dave. You have running back. i have them going with keeping. It's funny keeping quote unquote extra whether they even had more than this in the past. They've gone with this few three. I have them with four. I've got the the obvious nausea harris. I do have benny snell junior. Anthony mcfarland and jalen samuels. Because once again i i kind of put the kaelin balaj into the same boat as dwayne askins that he's going to have to knock somebody else out of there. I saw until. I can really see what he can do. I'm not a mud. Put that kind of expectations on. I have the same for megan a team. But i feel like one of the training camp battles that maybe no one's talking about too much because it's all about secondary stuff we're talking. Special teams. Players is jalen simmons versus ballad. Daniels has a connection with canada. We know their time at. Nc state dallas has was one of those players. do you take this for what it's worth but in during. Ta's enduring mandatory minicamp. He was the attention of reporters. Will one of the reasons was that the running back drills always done right below where the reporters were standing and watching them work out into. They had an up. Close personal look at balance in what he was able to do. Several writers were really high on balance. I could see him. Maybe making the team. I don't know if it's going to be an impact player. If he's even gonna helmet on game days does he play special teams. That's a big question. But i agree with david. I think those four harris snell mcfarland and of the ones that make the team fullback. Let's not even waste our time. Derek watts guy is going to win it and let's go to wide receiver. David you have a wide receiver. I've got the same five that they finished the year with an play. The entire season with last year of juice misused deontay johnson chase klay pool james washington and ray club. I have the same five and again like i said. I didn't think there was a there. Were many unless there's an injury and i don't even know who would even draft a wide receiver this year so i don't even know if they were to change anything you know. This guy's going to unseat. Ray mcleod who that guy would be. They don't have a ryan switzer type so in terms of wide receivers. I think this is the group. This is the group and it's just a matter of can they perform and can they stay healthy. Let's go to tight end. This is an interesting position here. Go ahead oh tight end i. I made a change from this earlier. I'm really torn. I think this could be one of the more interesting camp battles. I have them keeping three. I haven't been eric. Hebron pat fair move. At first i had kevin reiter now. I'm back to think it may be the wanna around with zach gentry again Mainly because i think raiders and easier to get on the practice squad. If you know what i mean but i think they could put they wanted to. They could even go with two here and put both those guys on the practice squad. So i'm going to be flip in those guys. Probably all preseason based on how they're playing originally with raider because he does offer special teams play so much so he played in the playoff game last year. But then the more out of. I'm like well. Zen gentry did lose his job because of injury and sealers are with. When when you get injured they don't like to lose. Lose your spot that's usually. Nc's it not between seasons right but so therefore you can flip a coin right now with either one of these guys really gonna come out of the preseason.

"The steelers special teams captain for two thousand twenty one. The question is now in the live chat. You may answer. Richest number one was there. My number one was chris boswell. So and your answer can't be nobody like you've had for number fire which i think would work so if you have your your answer andrew o. Barr says balaj. I still don't even have him on my fifty three until he shows something And really you think the steelers are going to have someone who's in their first season with pittsburgh is a captain. That's just not how to do it. Say brian brown says what she means. Derek us us pittsburgh's his mouse killebrew. I would agree with that as well. It's for what just about bellagio. That's hard for someone to make the be the team captain that first year up there Cheese ball ten says he agrees with boswell. George testing says what create assists chase. I don't see. Don't even play any specialty. Yes he actually. He played twenty seven percent of the spanish steps. Yeah he played a lotta. He played some governor. I expect though That number to go down this year not up. I do as well. That's what happens when you just like alex smith. Yes kathy. She says what. Hi cathy clarence. Washington also says what mason says balaj. Seth bow was the first one to say he's the first one. Say he says buddy johnson. Joseph pronounces buddy johnson but johnson. Honestly he might be my my bet for steelers special teams captain in two thousand nine twenty three. Yeah give him give him a couple years of the steelers. I think he's gonna play better. Tim this year but once again. I don't see the steelers having a rookie. Be a team captain. Okay richard adamson says boswell garrett slinger lynn said danny smith aka no one other words. Paul says none torna says lot of milk like. I don't even see that guy playing special teams. He just puerta. Just wanted to put that name out there. Bryan blackstock says derek. What the artist formerly known as soliver believe boy mob kennel. He says benny snell junior came. That's a good one. Okay chris pew pew. He says what he says. Happy derek will lead to happy. Tj want okay. And yeah and then some people are saying exactly what. I'm saying a rookie. Captain. these are players that i could see. Maybe down the road i i just. I don't know that this would be the rookie. Or some of those rookies. Have the opportunity to be impactful. Special teams player. But we're talking about the special teams captain going into the year. I don't see a rookie. Who to be voted on before they play a game crack. So it's not something like you have a floating captain. Were that going to go out. And they've done that in the past. The steelers did that. What was the game was was twenty. Twenty seventeen where the only had two captains yes i believe so they. They floated captains week-to-week. They didn't always announce them they had special teams captains. Just wasn't the same one. For the whole season tyler medicaid which was a special teams captain a decent number of times. I think in two thousand seventeen so but and that was only his second season. Twenty six thousand right. I think so. That's the thing that. I think they could do what you said where. It's nobody and they and they float it week to week. Okay like andrew says captain by committee. They kinda did they did. And that's not. That's uncommon that y play back in high school. We actually where we had some some like two captains every week in two captains rotated. Did that when i coached dude. When you're in high school. You wore leather helmets. I'm not at all if they were letter. How much high school. They were dinosaurs skulls. When you were nice that was we have to doubt that. Yeah so but you have could be interesting to hear what you have cows out there. He'd helped you get me good but that was pretty weak. So that's that's pretty awesome. I still say if you're if this was something you can place a wager on wwe. I'm putting my money on chris boswell. Honestly that's what he's my number one. He's been the captain before he's been with the team. I mean you realize he. He's one of the oldest players on the steelers. Yes if you're asking if you're asking me to put money on my on my ex. I'm probably put my i'm like you. I'd put money on. Baas put money on derek. What i'd put money on and nobody this we're gonna be my top. My top three vets would be those bets. This this is lifespan. I'm gonna do a little trivia with you. there bro. Ready ready one. Two three four thought. It was seven on the steelers current ninety man roster. There are seven players thirty years old or older. Can you name them. They're seven seven enron burns. Seven is one of them. Ben roethlisberger tyson. all of. He's the second oldest at thirty four bennett. Thirty nine cameron heyward cam. Heyward is one of the next two who was at thirty two cassius marsh. He's twenty nine. Okay to be close at strike restricts. Okay boswell boswell was thirty dispute a four right. That is for.

"That it is that it's not viable as money and that it wouldn't obsolete all of their money. Well i think it's based on our laws interview that i've been a. I'm pretty sure it's something you said. I keep repeating is that Bitcoin the do two things very well. One one of those is maintain the fix apply twenty one million and that is that is a really important point but i think the struggle. I usually have most of my friends even the u. k. Right we have a fairly stable currency we even if it's people in the us fairly stable currency but if you talk about someone like lebanon right now which is in the currency crisis. You can easily see how. Bitcoin could make that local currency obsolete. You can see the path you can also start to see the path for el salvador. Where they're trying to move away from there or lots of pomp upon the dollars. And i had a long chat recently balaj and he talked a lot about what we've coming up what we coming into now is currency wars. This is going to be a war of the next. You know maybe few years decades is actually currency was whereby some people will naturally move to bitcoin. Because it's better for more money whereas others will try and defeat bitcoin by trying to regulate its stop people using it as we've seen with china so like i understand what you're saying but i think your explanation of boy you think it makes other currencies obsolete and that journey itself is kind of interesting. Money is never considered in a vacuum that that it's always relative to another form of money and if we look back on history that human beings you money is an is a tool invented by human beings. just like any and people struggle with that Where where where. They think that that means that it's either a belief system or a collective loose nation But but it isn't and so you know when we recognize that money solves the problem of exchange And that that where i start people at is that money is a very basic necessity that as an economic good. It's different from all other economic goods but that And we we did talk about this in the last pockets. Bill bringing up here that that it is money as an economic good that coordinates all other economic goods. And what that means.

"Who's been here when this team was winning and knew what it was like when they were winning and that's the greatest thing about having home court advantage. Is that on sunday. These nick players. This group applies will finally get to feel what it really feels like when they are winning and the fan base you know this is a huge fan base around here. That has been clamoring. I some sort of winning and they finally have it. Or i should say we finally have it. So there's a sense of pride that tiptoe had had to reestablish first and foremost and i think that's what he didn't. He wrote the bags of his best players. Which in ninety would have done the same. Damn thing yeah. I mean the thing that would cement it for me if i was really breaking it down. I don't wanna disregard them money williams because that's sons team had struggled was if you look at rj barrett year one to year two. Julius randle first year were the knicks to this year. I mean is jewish reynolds entire career and this year. And then every other player outside elfriede peyton and derrick rose obviously early on his cruise and mvp and then injuries but every other player from alec burks to new orleans. No well to reggie bullock. Reggie balaj gibson. I mean yeah. I would give you. I would. yeah him to cut. In one of those guys maxed out the mitchell robinson would have been sending us a player as well. Everyone one of those guys was maximum so that to me is exactly what the coach of zoeller should be. And the good thing about that. That that leads me to believe that the ascension of emmanuel quickly and obi topping is going to happen because we seen the growth. Now those two players that you just pointed out you know. Those are the two young players that they're going to build a franchise around and we all know what the knicks need in the off season. We all know how they need. They need a point guard. Who can distribute and run that offense and via the court. General gotta be i. I know you like call out. Was cal kyle lowry i i just. I don't know about lonzo ball or any of that stuff off now. Is that they whether it be quickly turns into that guy because you. You're you're catching kind of like lightning in a bottle. With derrick rose right now yes you are and i think that he could come back and come back next year with the bench minutes but i yeah i i mean that's going to be the number one thing. You gotta address chris in hicksville. What's up chris. Hey how you guys doing all right. 'cause i this is all i heard in my lifetime. I'm sixty years.

Something like that Chris let me ask you about austin ekeler. So he left her. The concussion and i know you're very high on him. You have them ahead of derrick henry in your pr rankings for next season. But do you think that we also saw the. Nobody's gonna really remember this. But kaelin balaj got a goal line touchdown in week. Seventeen and that happened a few weeks ago as well. Do you think that to injuries this year including a week. Seventeen concussion might mean. They are not going to trust him with a full enough. Obviously a full workload in terms of carries but Do you think they limit his carries enough and his touchdowns enough in turn to really hurt his value. It's entirely possible. But like i don't really i have him projected for one hundred and eighty nine carries and seventy eight catches next season. I'm pretty sure that would give him the fewest touches among anyone in the top twelve or running back by probably at least twenty or thirty. He such an efficient playmaker. He such an efficient rauscher. He's such an efficient receiver That he can afford to have a smaller role. Maybe we'll get to the start of the twenty twenty one season and they'll have either really talked up just jackson or kevin balaj or but we've seen all these guys play we've seen joshua kelley play. None of them really looks like someone that you want to give extra work to take away from actors. Been so good that it really is only a question of can he hold up to it. And i don't know if kind of a free cam string injury in week four and then a concussion like those things happen you know i. I don't think the panthers are going to restrict christian mccaffrey usage. Of course a little a little dude though. Sure he small but he's very stout and he hasn't really had a ton of injury concerns before this you know. He had missed two games in his career before. Twenty twenty so i. I'm not too worried about that. Maybe i can be talked into moving him a little lower. I do have him fifth. Npr and there's kind of a a glut between him and number nine so it's possible. I could move him down. Sure dave is also a lot of all left though. We don't know who's coach is going to be play.

How Covid-19 changed Wine Consumer Behaviors in China

"Today. I'm going to be talking about cove. Ed's impact on china's y market and how those impacts are affected consumers buying behaviors. First of all this year. The buzzword we be hearing is lockdown but in china when we talk about lockdown. It's in the strictest sense you know one house. Hoed can only allow person to go out. Once a day to purchase or the necessities unlike in europe or in the. Us where you have the luxury to go out and do a lot of tours in china. It's really strict on in areas that are most affected by the pandemic. You're not even allowed to go all. There's a community officer who is on standby just to send all the necessities to you to your door. So this is the context where talking about when we want to understand covets impacts on china this is also the circumstance under which a lot of the business have to operate for three months from late january to april. So this is something i want to want. Everyone who's listening in to bear in mind to keep it in the back of her head on back of a mind to understand the couvert impacts. So i applaud. I'm gonna talk about cove ed's impact on china's wine imports so what happened to wine poured by the end of january. China had locked down the whole country as a result restaurants hotels essentially closed and miss the most important chinese new year sales for anyone wondering how big and how important is chinese new year for a lot of wine merchants. A lot of the lot of them who that i talked to toad may chinese new year wine sales account for roughly twenty percent or even up to thirty percent of their new sales so imagine that seven day period was lost okay and then imagine that period was extended for three months. So that's the challenge facing a lot of the importers in china. Of course logistics were delayed because quickly the pandemic spread from china to the rest of the world even when china in may and june recovered from the pandemic countries like france. And you know you us were in the depth of the pandemic so that affected global logistics while okay so we have the latest figures from the china customs at a showed. Import room declined by thirty percent. Thirty point eight percent to three hundred forty seven million leaders in poor value declined roughly thirty percent as well to u. s. one point eight four billion. This is quite significant. Because i want to draw attention to the fact that last year china's one import value already declined. We saw roughly ten percent job in volume terms and one percent in value terms because of the economic slowdown and trade war between china and us so the downturn we are saying this year is a continuation of what happened last year as well so that you know have a projection for what is to expect an what's to calm right okay. So the next one. I am going to talk about because of the job in wine imports on how affected merchants consumers and the price points are with saying on the shelves. Merchants of course when you have stalks that meant to be depleted for chinese new year that still sitting in the warehouse. What do you do when you have uncertainties facing forward more cautious. You becoming more cautious with your spending what to buy how to budget. That's natural response. A market sudden seeing a lot of merchants exiting the market on. Fortunately one of the examples with sane is from jovial. You guys are familiar with jovial. So basically jovial is a wine and agriculture importing company backed by the tech giant noval five years ago when it entered the market to stop important distribution winds. It costs a lot of and naturally they had a peak. I think around twenty key bruns including the world's biggest Organic winery and madonna in in chile and also jong here moi x. families wines earlier this year due to the pandemic it's general manager. Said they're suspended in the wine business. This is not a small one time. Importer were looking at a company. That's actually has quite a scale dots. The direct impact of the pandemic unperfect cards of course a lot of wineries and importers were having zero sales in february In particular consumers when you have job uncertainties because of the pandemic what are you gonna do. You're becoming more cautious with your spending. You're cutting all the non essential standings unfortunate wine is counted as among unlike you know maybe in france or italy or in the us consumers of course they're trading down if they are buying winds at all they. Are you know really budgeting what to buy. You know what is the best value. What is the most affordable wine out in the market. This can be reaffirmed by an expert on expert data. We just saw from burgundy out from january to september export volume to china hong kong jumped by roughly thirty percent and in value terms jumped by roughly around twenty percent and we see some increases in areas where the balaj ablation or shaba lease on those kind of increases Guan crew premier cru in terms of red and white store decreasing price.

The 'Brilliant Asshole' Who Almost Blew Up Coinbase

"I wanted to tell the story of Crypto. There's other bitcoin books out there. Of course but I wanted to make a successful to a broader audience people in finance academia so it is sort of plain English narrative of the story of Coin Base to tell the larger story of CRYPTO and how Wall Street Silicon Valley are coming closer together and it also includes a lot of gossip about the early days of Crypto the infighting in the world of Crypto and also just how they pulled it off to my my thesis Queen Basis basically becoming the crypto version of J. P. Morgan. They're going to be a bank one day and I wanted to tell the evolution of how that came to be and in the course of the evolution. What would you say were the biggest turning points I think the story of Crypto. Forgive me I'm GonNa ask the question. Broadly at first the larger story of CRYPTO. I think our biggest challenge is to go from being sort of a subculture of tech people who are passionate about it to something that can be embraced by everyone and I think they're getting there slowly and I think coin base has played a big role in that. I think by trying to walk the legal line if help to mainstream at so. That's I think but in terms of specific turning points I think the funding rounds obviously and I think just their success building highly usable APP and and also I think just sort of winning over enough mainstream people is what was one of the tipping points because the other thing I discovered in reporting the book allot people don't like is very much in terms of the old school. Crypto people. Because they're like you know not your coins not your keys and I understand that position but the thesis. I think I try to make is that. There's room enough for both camps. You're a hard core stored only on your wallet. That's fine nothing stopping you and I think coin base has bringing in millions more. Bitcoin buyers has helped build. Ecosystems that crypto general concerns and part of the reason people object to coin as holding people's keys and the fact that it goes against that. Not Your keys not your coins. Ethos is that it really puts the onus of security on a centralized place which makes that also an attractive honeypot for attackers so in terms of security which basically was pretty much of the utmost priority for coin base. How did that go for them? I think a tidbit. I revealed my book. You know. 'cause coins likes to boast. They've never been hacked. That's not actually true in the early days when there was five them because Charlie and Brian Federalism in a couple of other folks People one of their outside vendors dead did get in and robbed their hot wallets. The of tune of two hundred fifty thousand dollars can't remember how many bitcoin to was the time it was a lot. This was long time ago. Of course this was like twenty thirteen or twenty fourteen. But you know that's something I uncovered in the reporting so that coin base is very secured has a good reputation but they haven't been infallible. That's for sure and another time when it seemed that coin base was at odds with the broader crypto community was during the bitcoin block size debate. What is your take on? How coin be handled? That said at your excellent article on the big blockers versus small blockers of Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen. And you know I mean I confess. I had some sympathy for coin based in that because this will probably not make me very popular but I find a lot of the more ideological people in crypto sort of tribal and I don't think Brian helped himself. Because I think he wrote a blog posts saying you're mature and stuff you know win over people that way So I think there's fault on both sides but at the same time I think. A lot of the crypto believers beloved crypto. They love Bitcoin but can also shoot themselves to foot foot a little bit by making it. Such a sort of subculture insiders group that if they keep up. That attitude crypto cannot go mainstream. Because it's just you unapproachable from a social technological point of view so I do have some sympathy for For Brian in the coins crew in that way and as you kind of alluded to earlier coin base has had a tricky line to walk. Which is that. They've been trying to comply with regulation while also serving. This broader Crypto community which does contain more libertarian elements also has its origins safer punk movement. How would you say coin? Base has Navigate those waters. Well I mean you know Crypto has also you know skirted regulatory lines a few times. No thing I bring up to the book to is the early days with when they thought this is sort of funny. Actually because apple didn't allow crypto trading on their apps once upon a time so Brian FEDOR SIM decided to gio fence. Cupertino which is sort of funny so that meant that anyone in Cupertino would not be able to trade or by sell on the APP and of course. Cupertino were apple's quality check. Engineers are so that was a clever half. The meanwhile everyone else was trading as far as apple could tell people couldn't trade and of course they got caught named kicked out of the apple store for the year so that was sort of funny and then more seriously. I think Silicon Valley Bank which is one of the few entities that will bank tech crypto companies. They got cold feet after think. Frederickson did a presentation explaining how. Bitcoin could be used to skirt sanctions. He wasn't suggesting it he was just describing it because you know bitcoin of courses decentralized but at that point Silicon Valley Bank. Toss Them House coin. Basis a customer which is is very serious antioch because we don't have a bank. It's hard to carry on so a Quin base. Certainly made his missteps then but since I think they've done a better job of through walking the line and that raises another interesting point though by complying with US regulations which I think many crypto correctly say or too onerous that opened the door for finance to start running circles around them. And I think that's was. An is a very interesting story. The Nimble ability of finance to build what they want and operate the way they want to and coin based became bureaucratic as a result of having to comply with regulations and culturally to I think they busted out of that bed when it brought Balaj shrimp in on but I think you know the the thing is a mixed blessing for them. It's helped them become mainstream but it's also impeded their ability to

How does that change the way you think about how you think about when you work with your clients what they should be doing in this space, obviously was hit as an opportunity because it's it's another channel that's exciting, and this month's bakers that incense standalone of his this mobile, but smarts baker's doesn't clued hubs as well. So we can you know, as a creative can think about really fun solutions. That actually multi-modal Saudis some experiences that that benefit from, you know, just add ability to talk to speak Voces device that does benefit from visual display information as well. It makes sense. So Eva, we've looked at data from a lot of countries we've looked at data from a lot of different research organizations over the years what stood out to you about the option rate. Just how fast Cheyenne's adopted them. They're more as a percentage overall. And as they were saying, I did not know show. He was so tech savvy. So that was the surprise to me, and it was fun to see how also Google entering the market. I impacted the adoption by brand. Well, that's what we want to talk about next. But Matt you want to jump in. I think the other thing which is found very interesting about Australia's a whole. Of course, having lived here saying that happen Assange launch from just the how rapid this is the a lot of companies began to say slots vacances paying a desirable put up to us to hook on the paper into products News Ltd decided that they were going to give away a Google. Probably more good will meet with any new digital subscription to the newspaper publications. They want Balaj United media publication companies in the world. So for them to actually utilize slots fakers away to get able to sign up for a use of from them. Obviously show that this is something that people were interested in Telstar has given away smarts baker's with you purchase of Android fun. Hawaii is comedy giving away a Sunol? We've any pay three. I think will pay thirty. Sorry. You know, it's it's it's not just the. This is the interest from people buying it. It's also logical Oviously have seen the pushing one of these value. Add is enough to entice people into choosing bam of somebody else. Well, we've seen this elsewhere. So Spotify ran a program in Europe are excuse me. They ran into Ridgely in the US. I think in Q four and they had eleven percent rise in new subscribers which was about double what it estimated for they plan for the quarter. But their promotion was that gave away Google home mini to anybody who signed up for the subscription service. You know, switch from the the free ad-supported to the paid monthly subscription. And so and then they've doubled down. Now, they're doing it UK put other countries because it makes the difference in the other thing I was thinking about to you you mentioned that about the giveaways, so that's really popular in the US. There's a lot of the big manufacturers doing a lot of people are doing the giveaways, but I remember seeing a bunch of. Things come across the news around people giving away Google home hubs in during the holiday season. I was wondering if anybody actually bought a Google home or they're all just like giving away. All right. I can speak from experience that I know that a lot of Google minis would given away amongst friends and family at the Christmas just post, and it's pretty cheap pace of technology to buy compared to compare it. Just to fun, for example. It's Nieve talking fifty dollars versus a thousand some it's the huge price difference. And it's a pretty fun pay settlement. Even if we decide to actually look at the also, let's let's just continue the fame of of looking at the the information that waste inside the consoles the actions, the we managed on behalf of our clients. We did see spikes in usage after Kasai. Above the baseline averaged. And once settled down foam that the baseline diner averages remind high than the baseline daily average prior to.

Chinese Presence in Pakistan Is Targeted in Strike on Consulate in Karachi

"In Karachi three tacos storm, the local Chinese consulate killing four people including two police officers before being killed themselves and before they could detonate their primary weapon econ Laden with explosives for more on this. I'm joined by Aisha Deka military, scientists offer and research associate at so as I should first of all the attack itself on the Chinese consulate in Karachi, it's been claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army. Basically who are they in what they want? The Balochistan national liberation on me is a nationalist below ch- nationalist movement, their ethnic movement a want independence from Pakistan. But what is very cute cute is that. Earlier on in the past Balochistan Liberation Army or any army associate with the below schmooze Flint has never had the capacity to strike inside of an centers and astrategically aside, as for example, the Chinese consulate says very very strange, and it's a cross border attack as well. It's not within Balochistan. Yes. It's not within Balochistan earlier. What we've seen is that be LA or other armies of the movement would strike say petty workers, laborers working for the army all blow up a pipeline going through Balochistan having their years ago. This is like four five years ago. There was a blast in Islamabad, which was the extra beauty to be LA. But you know, everybody knew wasn't the LA. Be LA didn't have the capacity. I still don't think it has the capacity, but what is being claimed is on behalf of LA. This was on its own merits at least clearly an extremely ambitious attack. I mean, this is a a high profile and presumably will secured target, which they clearly intended to do serious damage if this was the Balochistan the beret army, and as you correctly point out, there's some doubts as to whether they're claiming to whether it's being claimed on their behalf by other actors, but why would the Chinese consulate of Bena target fastly because there is the China puck sonic comic corridor, which passes through Balochistan. There is development work and guava, which is a portent of very strategic port very strategic location in Balochistan. It's a deep sea fishing pole, which would give China the ability to kind of a be part of the Rabian, see. Says very strategic and what the Balaj ethnic Ballade say is that well, a strategic mood shift has been made a strategic decision has been made regarding the province without taking them into account. And they do not want to be part of Pakistan. I still don't think I mean, I'm doubtful that there are several claims. There's a Pakistani claim that the Balaj themselves are being funded by by Indians in intelligence agency in of gone intelligence agency, they could be others as well. And what the Chinese have been saying so long is allow us allow the Chinese to come bring their own force into Parkistan the security forces to defend and secure anything. Why there is Chinese investment or Chinese presence? So it could be anyone really. But it doesn't look like. The work of be LA because be LA has limited capacity is much not just in Balochistan, but in Pakistan as whole is the much resentment or suspicion of China's increasing influence in Buxton. In Balochistan, the issues being raised bought generally the state, and the people are generally, you know, excited about money coming in. I mean through the China Pakistan economic corridor. China plans to invest sixty one billion dollars into Pakistan and has so far invested about twenty six billion dollars. They were stopped after the last government lost in elections. And there is a new government in the new government destroying to reach out to the Giannis. But there are other problems, for example, IMF has raised issues with how CPAC known as coming into into parka sawn, and they're saying that box on will get into debt trap China. And so when box current prime minister went to China, very recently, he was met very warmly, but not giving any money Buxton. Badly needs money. So it was a smile. Good vicious press. But nothing several M several MU signed but nothing substantive in terms of
