"And I did play it, but I didn't hear. I didn't hear it Couldn't hear it, Man. I'm not your jacked up here. Help out There's a little bit hell little bit okay. A little. I'm not quite in it. But still what kind of forever we're, you know. Have that going for us, Uh, your first just take your frustration on, Jamie. That's I got to do it. Yeah, I'm gonna put it on. But I was gonna surprise that Jim Harbaugh that I mean, a. We got him as early as we did number, you know, in spring practice, it seems like lately it's been forever before we actually get to talk to him. Number two. I was surprised that he had a spoiler alert and told told everybody right before we Before every, you know, we even got to Friday that Wanda died at the beginning of this episode. New Division. I knew it had to be this one. Yeah. Um, but no, we talk to Jim Harbaugh. I was a little a little bit surprised that we got too. But at the same time, it's like it's been a while right has been since The Tuesday before the Ohio State game that we were supposed to have. So the week of December 12 s o right before then, that we finally we haven't heard from him since then. And a lot has happened and I don't feel like 20 minutes of Talking to him yesterday really got into everything because you consider you've got all these coaches that got hired the decisions that go in with that You've got the whole signing class. And, Yeah, he addressed it with John Jansen. On his pod Con Jansen's podcast, But like we haven't talked to about all the early and release and we haven't and now we have spring practice. So like Way spent most of the time talking about the coaching stuff and not a lot about spring practice. But it's you know, two days in, so it's a little bit hard, Tol To say, like you know who who's really impressing you through to non padded practices, Right? Like if you're You know who who's gonna be the next obvious superstar Jim. Tell us tell us based off of seeing them running around on a field for two days. How that works out but least we got a little insight into Mike McDonald that higher More than anybody. That's what I lead with it. After a couple of us asked the Mike McDonald question. I think we finally kind of got to the bottom of it. But he seems like kind of sold me a little bit on hiring him is the defensive coordinator. The some of the things he had to say, talked about him being likely to have been a defensive coordinator in the NFL here in the next year. Year or two, eh? So if you're getting him early than that's awesome on top of that, you know, we talked about Matt Weiss was kind of the same thing so highly and widely respected in the NFL. Which kind of led me to the this in Jamie, Stop making that face. Jake. Okay. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Go ahead. Yeah. You know, just that whole thing of like I started thinking about it a little bit because like I wasn't as thrilled about the man twice higher right? Because I felt like you needed a You need a linebackers coach and you brought in a quarterback's coach, and no longer was Jimmy to be coaching the quarterbacks. And I really wanted to see him have honestly that touching that accountability and now he doesn't But At the same time when you think about it. Yeah, I mean getting assistance from a place like the Baltimore Ravens. This is something we've talked about here on the show as well, You know, looking at Other NFL teams rate. You know the the going out and getting other assistants to be coordinators. You know, like the Lions went out and got Aaron Glenn to be their coordinator, and he was an assistant. Uh, I think that if these moves came when Harbaugh arrived, everyone would be through the moon. Right Looking at the staff as a whole. I think everyone would be like Yeah. Who cares if Mike McDonald hasn't called place before like, Look, look get his pedigree three years as the Ravens linebackers coach, According to Harbaugh, what he said yesterday he was pivotal in the plan for the retooling of the Baltimore Ravens. Defense and it's it's been at worst atop atop eight unit across the board as far as total defense in the NFL and rush defense. And what do you think about the fact that what is the Ravens defense known for its known for? It's linebackers, and he was the guy that was coaching them. You feel a little bit better about some of these things. What do you take a look at it through that lens? So that was the book of what we talked about, and it didn't really Get into a lot of spring practice a little bit on the leadership thing like you played at the at the beginning, and he praised it and Hutchinson and he prays Josh Ross and Hassan Haskins and a few others. But as far as like people actually doing things like, uh, We asked him about JJ McCarthy and you just really ran through a list of all the early enrollees, So it's kind of like, Okay, cool. That's great Intel like we now know who everyone is. That's on the roster. But, uh It's good stuff, at least just get him early instead of delaying it. Like it seems like we've kind of had in the last couple years. Yeah, maybe that defense will Rise to the occasion and maybe the optimism that you're talking about We'll be able to see it. They're out on the field. You know the flipside to it. The way I look at it.
Fresh update on "baltimore ravens" discussed on One Bills Live
"But if we don't we better have a backup plan at the ready and it better not look like It's the contingency. Let's get that other guy in here along with the rest of these guys, So it looks like he's one of the enemy. If you want to be cynical about and you take the dysfunction for what it is, it might be. Guy like the GM. Or this, The other guy that we're talking about, and I can't get used to me. It Easterby and the owner, maybe. Let me go on. Which one of these guys going to do what we tell him to do? Well, yeah. Which one of these guys is the guy that we want to, you know that there's gonna When we tell him to make this player over this player to make this movie, he's going to do it. Which one of these guys will do that and I, you know, and I have all the respect in the world for David Kelly, and I wish him success down there. I remember when he was here he was, You know, a great guy. All that stuff. But if you compare his coaching resume to Eric the enemy, and Leslie Frazier it it just doesn't add up to the same answer. I think anybody could see that just looking at it on paper. I'm not saying he's not qualified. I'm just saying there were other candidates here who appeared to be more qualified. Um and you know they made their decision for whatever reason, and there may have been extenuating circumstances that had them land on David Kelly. We'll never know. Until somebody writes a book about it, like, you know, 20 years from now or whatever, but it Z getting ugly down there. But in any event, that's a long way around saying what we have on the show. So Brady Hendricks in the ESPN, NFL nation reporter for the Seattle Seahawks. Will be joining us in the third hour the program to talk about the Russell Wilson scenario, and how and the many directions it could go between now and the start of next season and in just about 10 minutes time. We will put Steve to his weekly test, a new edition of Taskers teammate. I really I'm kind of proud of this one. I hope it comes to fruition in the way that I hope, But I think this will be a good one. So make sure to stay tuned for that. But we do want to answer your questions on the O. B. L Friday fan mail bag. And on the phones at 803 Old 5 50. We've got Bob hanging on here to lead us off today on the show Bob in Rome, New York. Bob, What do you have for us? You're on one bill's life. All right. How you doing, guys? Good. Good. My question Today is looking. You showed the upcoming schedule for the bills, right? What is going on with the scheduling lately? I mean, they're gonna play theme. The Of Tennessee Titans again three years in a row and Dempsey away other they're going to play Kansas City in Kansas City again. I mean, I Pittsburgh again. I mean, I don't understand. It seems like what? Well, it's a out of a hat. I the schedules. Crazy. Well, Bob, Here's the thing. There's a formula. It's not like they arbitrarily pick this stuff. It's all in a pattern. It's a rotational rotational schedule, so the bills are due to play the What is it this year? The apes the plating, a F C South South and the NFC South So Right off the bat, and I understand what you're getting at Bob. Because each of the last two years the bills have played the Titans in Tennessee. So the reason for that is those two teams. Finished in the same place in their respective divisions. Each of the last two years. And what you have is when you fill out a Nephila team schedule their assigned Two divisions. One division from the A. F. C. That is not their own one division from the NFC, uh, and those rotate now, Obviously, there are four divisions to rotate through in the other conference. And then you have your own division teams that you played twice apiece for total of six games. You play all the teams in the assigned other A F. C Division that's form or games for total of 10. And then you play four teams in the NFC in a division and now what about what are we up to? That's 14. So that leaves you with two outstanding games. Those two games are played against The two teams in the other remaining a F C divisions that you're not playing. And they you play the same team that finished in the same place in their division as you faced in your division. So each of the last two years, the bills did not play the A F C South. But the team assigned to the Bills to play in the A F C South team were the Titans because they finished in second last year, just like the bills, and the year before, as well. They finished in the same position. Now, if you go all the way back to the last time that the bills played the A F C South, it was 2017 Sean McDermott's first year, the Bills played them here and 1 13 to 12 on a last second field goal. By Stephen House Key If you remember So the last time they faced him as a division. Facing opponent intra conference It was 2017. They played him here, So it just so happens that they were the away team in the one of two games that are left on the schedule to play in a F. C club from the other two division and the home in a way Um I don't. I don't know how that way. I don't know how that that may be. The one thing that is arbitrary. Yeah, that might be where I'd have to check on that. But that might the city again. Um Yeah, that's a that's a tough break right? But that is that is an example of one of the two games on Buffalo schedule this year. They played the A F C West last year. And based on rotation. They were at Kansas City. Um And so this year, they're not playing the A F C West, so they have to play the one team in the A, F. C West and the one team in the A F C North. That finished in first place in the division in 2020, those two teams or Pittsburgh and Kansas City. So they get Pittsburgh at home Kansas City on the road, and that's its rotational. I know it doesn't sound fair because you're saying man alive. We gotta go play Tennessee in Tennessee again. We got to play Kansas City in Kansas City again. Yes. Now I'm sure Pittsburgh saying the same thing, Man. We just played the bills Sunday night. In Buffalo. We gotta go back up there and play him again this year, and here's another. Here's Here's the way that goes to now you think about this. The Bills will probably play. Uh, when taking it when you talk about the F C North. The bills would probably played the year after this coming here. Probably play Baltimore again. Or something like you could play ball to Morgan, and it feels like guys. We just played Baltimore here and that, but that was a playoff game. So that's arbitrary. So some of these teams when you get into the you start playing the playoffs, you start having different opponents. We played the Colts. We played the Baltimore Ravens and we played the chief's twice this last year. You're going to start seeing these teams all the time. I remember back in the nineties, The bills were always playing the L. A Raiders every every year every year and sometimes twice a year. Couple of times. They just don't get away from because the team's peek at the same time and they're playing divisions and you know, and then you just you just crossed paths with them all the time. I remember we played the Giants like it's we played the Giants like three times in the course of 24 months. Let him into the regular season and 90 the Super Bowl of all the preseason..

"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Tackle and austin johnson at defensive end and they were both on the defensive left so i wonder if that might be something as well but having the giants more explosive and athletic players inside where they'd have to deal with more double teams was just a weird weird decision to me. Yeah i didn't really get that either. It was just odd. And i'd be curious to ask patrick graham. What is decision making was. Obviously we don't have. That opportunity was just so different. And even if we did he wouldn't tell us right he wouldn't give us a direct answer but i just we've never seen them really do something like that before. He decided to make that switch but we ended up. Seeing is a lot of outside runs that were able to pick up some really good yardage because of that. Adjustment the other thing too. That i noticed a lot of usage of cam brown and then i saw a lot of crowd or playing in the middle and again. I'm not questioning graham's decision to do this. But i just didn't get why you were going with a linebacker take crowder specifically who's a little bit more known for being a really good coverage player and asking him to defend the run against a run heavy team he was just out there a ton and i thought that he got lost lost a lot in the weeds. Going against those bigger guys. When he's just shedding blocks yeah the that was again. Another curious decision they. The giants played a lot of crowder and a lot of david mayo at linebacker and on the flip side. They didn't use their edge players now. The giants edge players are lacking. That's something we have talked about a few times but jamal sheared only got thirty snaps. Campground only twenty four snaps on the flip side. Take crowder played almost every single. Snap and david mayo. Headed i forty or forty five snaps that those are just some weird personnel decisions. And i have to think that graham might have outsmarted himself a little bit trying to walk the line between defending the ravens running game but also trying to match up with the speed that they have on their offense and i understand that being a very tight. Difficult line to walk but Johnston really do it this time. Now they they definitely did not. That's all we have for this film breakdown. Show giving you the perspective of what we noticed when we watched the film. Some of the things that weren't really easily parent from the broadcast when we watched the game live. We're now shifting our focus and we're going to get a show out to you this week preparing you for the dallas cowboys and filling you in on all of that great.

"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Big Blue View
"After the new york giants loss to the baltimore ravens. A twenty seven to thirteen wasp. One that could effectively put the giants out of playoff contention now. We are recording this in the middle of the washington football team carolina panthers game so the current playoff situation could be fluid but is simply as it is this loss for washington as they're playing carolina. They're in a strong position to now clinch their spot of making it to the playoffs. That being said though. I think this this is a really good time to just bring up the discussion on how this game. I think chris brought us back to reality. And if if anybody appreciates the show in a consistent listener the one thing that we've always tried to be is extremely honest with evaluating the giants and reacting as honestly as possible. We try not to get too high. We try not to get too low even though we do at some points trying to stay as little as possible where we'd try to sway and i think it's tough to do that consistently no. There's a lot of other shoe shows that are like a lot of giants fans are that tend to be very optimistic when things are going well and as we try to be realistic. I think going into this game. We understood. This was going to be a very tough match up and we fully saw. I think the worst that it could possibly be. Even the score was in complete blowout but they were dominated in a number of spots in this game and when we're talking about how this brings us back to reality. There's a lotta politics that can come away from the season and the four game stretch that they put together of wins beating the seahawks a lot of other good things. Those positives are clear indication that you have the right coach and you can build on the success from this year in. Turn it into success next year. The miami dolphins did exactly that last season. And i think the giants could very well be like the dolphins in terms of transitioning from decent. Okay play in in good spurts of of success in turning that into being a playoff team and that being said at the same time when you play a playoff team e clear playoff team even though they're on the fringe of making the playoffs and currently on the outside looking in the ravens are a dominant team and the giants just right now don't have talent at certain positions to compete with the team like the baltimore ravens yet. This was another game where the giants were just. They played hard but they were just out. Manned they don't have the personnel to really match up with these true super bowl playoff-caliber teams and like you said the raven's are now that they are health healthy. They are absolutely a super bowl team. They are one of the best teams in the nfl. Even if they don't make the playoffs they have talent and players at just about every single position and the giants right now. don't they are lacking players at receiver that something we brought up all season. They're lacking guys who can play off the edge. Who can threaten offense as off the edge. They need help. At the secondary we saw isaac yeldham kind of exposed by this ravens offense and we saw some some promising things. Giants do have a core put together the foundation. They can build on but they are not there yet right and i don't think there's anything wrong with not being there yet and. I think that there's definitely going to be a lot of giants fans that are frustrated by talking in that late. And you know you can be frustrated if you want but not being there yet. The expectation that we had at the beginning of the year that we knew coming into the season and especially when they were on a long losing streak that they weren't going to come out and win the nfc east outright and go eleven eleven and five or ten and six and again. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. The fact that they've played a little bit higher over the expectations that we expected especially midway through the season. I don't think there's anything wrong to be realistic and understand our. This wasn't the year that they were going to take that next step. It's a new head coach. Next year i think is a really prime position for them to build off of the success that they have going for them right now and and one of the things that sticks out to me in this game that i think is indicative of again bringing us back to reality is how they started really slow and they were allowing baltimore to do what they do best. They weren't killing them with big plays. But they were just chipping away. Chipping away. Chipping away with seven yard. Pickups eight yard pickups and picking up first downs every other apply because they were so slow to then counter that and they played alert. They played better in the second. Half like we've seen them do a lot this year because they were so slow. They put themselves out of the game. They don't have the type of a roster to make a seventeen point comeback in win the football game against a ravens team maybe against a sloppy low end roster but against a ravens team like this. They're just not built to make a crazy comeback. No and the because the ravens were able to jump out to that lead. And i understand what patron was doing zone. Defense has worked for them. Maybe not great but it has worked for them particularly over the last eight weeks or so when they've been winning playing teams hard and close. This ravens team has too many ways to beat you to just be able to sit in zone and okay. Even if that is a good way to combat their read option looks. They have to run the ball that way. They can run a more traditional offense and they can include the zone beaters. The things like that to the giants just didn't have the personnel to match up on offense matchup with ravens offense. They don't have the as we said they don't have those big play. Threats guys who can flip field position on any given play. Who can force. The defenses hand forced the ravens to not sit in covers zero and matchup man across the board and the giants cannot make them pay for doing that. And when defenses do that they. It's just too easy for the other team giants. Don't have the guys to win that kind of a shootout and we also saw not a ton of plays but there were a couple of plays where i was watching and it was what we've seen previously be successful for for patrick graham forcing a quarterback to sit and watch in trying to figure out our. What am i going to do because nobody's open. Lamar jackson did that a little bit early on. But the big difference between the mark jackson and somebody who the giants were successful at slowing down. Tom brady is that lamar jackson's a phenomenal athlete. So he immediately realized after like four seconds hanging in the pocket all right. You know what. I'm just going to roll out and i'm going to go pick up this first down because everybody vacated that inspire me and the defensive line is too slow to get me so they were not really again built to try and make crazy comeback..

"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Defenses are never quite sure if the ravens intended to run the ball so they always kind of have to play the run. At least a little bit and that slows down their pass rush it slows down their pass coverage and the ravens are. Just fantastic at exploiting that. Yeah they are team that knows how to play to their strengths and then allow other teams to bite on it and it was something. This is actually kind of interesting to talk about the ravens because it's almost a mixed between what we saw. The browns do really well and what the cardinals did really well. The cardinals very strong at running. Those read option plays the browns good at setting up. Play action in picking up yards that way if teams try to slow down their running game so now it's a mix of both because you're implementing the read option into your running game. The other thing. Too chris that you wanted to bring up. They have a pretty unconventional offensive design. A lot of eleven personnel and they'll also frequently use extra tight ends in extra running backs which is not something. We typically see a whole lot in the nfl especially the usage of extra running backs yet. The ravens only us eleven personnel three receivers set about half of the time. That is very low for the modern nfl. Usually it's up somewhere around sixty five seventy percent of snaps especially since sean mcvay and the rams showed how effective that personnel said is actually running the ball because it forces defense's in two smaller sub packages to to try to compensate for more receivers being on the field with the ravens. Do is they use a actually a fairly even distribution of twelve personnel. That's too tight ends. Twenty one personnel. Which is two running backs. They like to use a fullback and twenty two personnel. Which you figure out from from previous two is two running backs or two backs and two tight ends they even though we would normally think of those as running formations running packages. They don't always use those to run. They like to throw to their tight ends downfield. They liked to throw their fullback. They like to get their running back involved in the passing game and they don't always use traditional spacing when they do that they will use one of these heavy packages but then try to spread the defense out or conversely they will keep everything nice tight get the defense very concentrated in the middle of the field and then look outside to marquees brown or willie snead or somebody like that or one of their tight ends kind of sneaking out into these spaces and get them in space and pick up yards after the catch that way and speaking of unconventional unlike unlike a lot of teams they use their fullback. Patrick ricard a ton. He is a confer converted defensive lineman he is three hundred. Pounds does not look like he's three hundred pounds. They love to use them as a blocker. Hell they'll even get him the ball in space because he moves fantastically for a three hundred pounder. So you'll see him a lot on the field you'll see him trying to clear lanes. They will try to work him in. He is an asset that they utilize that should be paid attention to for the giants speaking on weaknesses. Now and i want to preface this by saying so. I don't get any angry quote tweets or tags or podcast reviews. This is gonna sound like making. It seem like it's simpler than this but they're only weakness. I think you can really highlight and just talking very. Generally we spoke on how the giants struggled to contain cuyler. Murray and the reason for that because the giants don't really have the speed off the edge to play good contain if you're capable of preventing lamar jackson from playing outside of the pocket. That is where he flourishes. Where extent plays his receivers extend plays. He then gets the ball out or he'll pick up yardage with his feet if you can keep them within the pocket on passing plays in you effectively. Play the run the same way you did against the cleveland browns. If you're able to do that. The mark jackson and the way teams have had success against lamar. Jackson is by doing that you then limit his opportunities to pick up extra and again. That sounds really simple. But they're receiving group is not good enough for lamar to play in the pocket and just typical a typical passing offense. They're receiving group is not as good as some of the other teams. We've seen over the last few weeks for the giants. So if you can keep things contained keep lamar in a spot where he can't move around much you're probably not going to sack him because he's that kind of a player he's going to still find a way to throw the ball away. These fast enough to do that. But if you could prevent him from extending plays in for his weaker receivers to eventually get open. That is very big in trying to slow down this offense and again that is something that sounds easier said than done a lot easier said than done and i can't really confidently say that the giants are going to be capable of doing that but if they play very very well this game and they play true to that assignment. I'm willing to bet. Patrick grandma's gonna come out here with that plan in mind if they can do that. This game is going to be a lot closer. They can keep it within striking distance to possibly win this game yet defensively. That's going to be the key for. The giants is being assignment. Sound being absolutely disciplined not falling for the misdirection not committing too hard to pursue over pursuing against rpo's and read option plays and playing good contain keeping lamar jackson in the pocket. The giants should have james bradberry back. You know maybe they If they can do that maybe those coverage rotations we saw can get him confused. Because as a passer i would say jackson's biggest weakness is that he can get greedy. He can get overly aggressive. Your against the jaguars. He threw an early interception a mostly because he got greedy he wanted the touchdown even passed up a wide open tight end in the intermediate zone. Like you said it is much much easier said than done particularly because the giants are going to be walking a fine line because of how the ravens used their personnel. They're going to try to force the giants into heavy personnel sets but they had enough athleticism that those heavy personnel sets are going to be difficult to keep up with so in keeping contain is going to be difficult particularly since the giants might not have the speed to keep up with jackson. And if he's able to make somebody missed in the backfield then. All bets are off coming up. We are going to transition to talking about this ravens. Defense in everything you need to know everybody elaine.

"The cowboys lost jail mccoy before the season ever begin all right. They lost blake jarwin before their first game was over. They lost tyran smith. They lost lyle cons. They lost leading vander esch lost to lose it for a stretch. They're playing without their best. Cornerback right now and trayvon dukes. They lost prescott. They've lost zack. Martin the best center. Obviously travis frederick retired before the season began. I mean connor. Williams is the point of stability on the offensive line which is a crazy place to live here in two thousand and twenty yet. Somehow some way here is where we are. It's it's it's frustrating. I get it. It is really frustrating. Tiny says i'm not tank but yeah how did they tank. The bengals chats are so bad. I agree Look let's see andrea says rj. How can invest in fixed defense when they still have to pay the quarterback. Look i'm there's a lot of life the salary cap isn't real talk and that is a fair point that the salary cap is not this like impending doom that a lot of people make it out to be and like the philadelphia eagles are going to be up against it when it comes to the salary cap and their situation but it is possible for the cowboys to pay dak prescott and find offensive talent right. I mean you know. And i think we think and i want to speak for you here but i think i think that we think that the cowboys have things to work with on defense. I'm not saying they have a roster full of pro bowlers right but like think about the defense on a superficial level. You've got tristen hill back. We all thought he was playing very well before he got hurt for the season in the same game. The dak prescott right okay. Cool you've got demarcus. Lawrence do not be one of the people that's like demarcus. Lawrence sucks whatever. No tank. Lawrence is awesome. You don't have a problem there. Tank lawrence you've got tristen hill. Got randy gregory. Got all smith. If he comes back. I mean you know so. I'm not too. You've got neville gal in his second year so defensive line i'm not super worried about the cowboys will probably say goodbye to tyron crawford but overall not too bad right. You've got leighton vander esch. You've got a legitimate peace to work with who've has had his fair share of troubles but you've got a legitimate peace to work with still in his rookie contract. Jalen smith is a tough situation right. But maybe maybe francis bernard does something special right but the point being you have a legitimate peace there you've got seemingly a star cornerback in the making and trayvon dick's right. You really don't have anything in the secondary secondary's awful right. There's a lot wrong with the state of the secondary. So how do you fix it. Well if you end up with the fourth overall pick you call the chicago. Bears detroit lions. Are somebody say. Hey come get your quarterback right now give me a lot of picks because that's how you fix it. It's going to be more than just you know. The fourth overall pick the fifth overall. Pick whatever the cowboys need a lot of help and they need to your point about having to pay dak prescott in need a lot of younger cheaper rookie contract help because you know. That's that's the dream right. Dissolve the gods got a tank and trade down. Maybe more than once. I agree trade down trade. This is going to be a fascinating year when it comes to the nfl draft because of the fact that so many players have opted out so many players obviously opting out. The season continues to go along the great dane burglar. Last week mocked kayla. Farther to the cowboys obviously opted out. So it's it's hard to know right and it's hard to know what teams are going to value. What because of the incredible uniqueness of this college and really of this year in many ways and so but tanzer the question. That's how you fix defense you trade down. You have a great draft class. And i think that we all think again. The cowboys did have a great draft class in two thousand and twenty. They just faced a firestorm from hell. I mean. that's that's the problem here. I think this is a ball. Take a bit of a baltic. So excuse me. But the dak prescott led cowboys. If you just put dak prescott on the cowboys on tuesday night in baltimore instead. Of andy dalton. I think they win. That game i really do. I think the baltimore played down to the cowboys a bit. I think that you know obviously baltimore still would have scored a lot. But i think that the cowboys would have scored a lot. Let's i think the the dakhla cowboys at least split this series with washington. I think the cowboys philadelphia in philly when benvenuti played right. I think that the dakhla the cowboys you know. I don't know you can go a number of ways here and my point is i. Think the dakhla. The cowboys are maybe smashing some offense of records partly because of the defense and how bad they are but i think that they are at least in first place in the nfc east and so to answer that question a long way. If you have that piece you're fine right like if you look at the seattle seahawks as an example. And i'm not saying that the current seattle seahawks are the bright and shining example of who. You want to be as an nfl team but if russell wilson is on they've shot. We all agree if russell wilson is playing an mvp level. The seahawks have a chance. And i know. I know dak prescott. Russell wilson whatever but act. Prescott is a very good very elite franchise quarterback and so when he's on you've always got a shot. We've seen that right. We've seen that a number of times and so if you can bring that piece in you can figure a lot of other things out or a lot of other. Things will figure themselves out. I should say and so. That's why getting back is such a high priority and it is. It is what it is. Let's see here alden. Smith has brutal after week. Four or five crampy. Says i mean all the smith is again still the fact that alan smith is what it is is still pretty incredible like individually his own story. And we're all rooting for all the story. But yeah i mean the pace. He was never going to keep up..
"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"Long and heart okay. The dallas cowboys were just embarrassed as you and i said here talking by the baltimore ravens right now. We all know the baltimore ravens to be an illustrious. Nfl franchise the baltimore. Ravens have had a lot of success. John harbaugh become a really great coach. John harbaugh has got hall of fame. Resume this point. Especially if he wins another super bowl the baltimore. Ravens have won two super bowls as a franchise. They'd been a multiple. Afc championship games. The baltimore ravens have had an inordinate amount of success as an nfl franchise. We all agree with that. Do you realize that the last time that the cowboys even appeared in an nfc championship game happened to before the baltimore ravens existed. Okay so think about that for a long second. The entire history and success rise and fall of multiple variations of the baltimore. Ravens franchise has come completely in the time. Following any even appearance of the dallas cowboys in the penultimate game of the season. That is a flabbergasting fact. But it's where we are. And i'm not trying to be the guy that just lives in history. Oh man it's been so long since the cowboys won but we are upset and we are frustrated in this season. Has some legitimate column excuses. This season has some legitimate exclusives. You lose your franchise quarterback and things are going to be rough for you but you look at other situations and other teams have found ways to prosper and that leads to questions that leads to conversations that leads to confusion and then you look at other decisions like the continued promotion of ezekiel king. As you says. Zeke is declining. And i'm not sure if it's wear and tear or lack of motivation. Yeah i mean right now. I mentioned jerry's comment. He made about being the best player on the team. Zeke is not even the best running back on the dallas cowboys at the moment. That is not a hot take. That's just a fat tony pollard. Who really showed up to tony. I killed tony pollard. Early in the season on kickoff returns because he was an unmitigated disaster there. But tony part is kind of turned it around. He fell down on one of them against the ravens. But tony pollard is. By far the most explosive running back on the team. Brian on youtube has rj. What's the deal with. Zeki was better. Than i still doesn't look like the vintage the i know. The line is devastated. But paula looks a lot more explosive. It's time for him. Thank you for agreeing brian. Now here's the thing was the offensive line there bad in baltimore i mean think about it was the offense. I mentioned winners and losers. I had the offensive line is a winner for the campus. I thought the offensive line played very well. All things considered i mean. Think about the fact that this offensive. I was missing zack. Martin who the cowboys placed on injured reserve on monday and the last time. The couch without zack. Martin was when they went to washington and they were so bad. Andy dalton got run over and and had a concussion and so i thought that all things considered the cowboys offensive line held up going off the top of my head at this point but any was sacked once right one and now. It's kind of indies fault. And that's what i think. Andy played okay. I think that overall things were just you know it's it's hard. It's not quite square peg round hole but it's finicky and it's frustrating and it's it's awkward and it's it's just trying to ram stuff and that's just not happening nothing. That's fluid nothing to smooth for the cowboys. And that's a huge part of why they're having so many problems. Not just on offense defense not just on special teams which are still a continued disaster but overall the overall functions of their teams. Now andrei says. Rj don't think jerry jones has a chance of winning another super bowl and his lifetime. The winds were all jimmy johnson. Another kind of thing that people love to say. It's it's hard and you know. People look at the new england patriots right and they're run that they had and who knows if he does end the season but people say oh. The patriots got to play the dolphins. And you know the bills and the jets when they were really bad. And we're really terrible. But i mean like this. This is a chance like the nfc east has not just been bad this year. I know the eagles won the super bowl three years ago. But generally the nfc east has been there for the taking and the cowboys have managed to take it right. They took him in two thousand fourteen sixteen and eighteen. And that was it. That's the end of the road out of the boys to men that the cowboys kind of managed to take and speaking of the nfc east. I don't know that. It is really going to work out for the cowboys. I i know that some of you may have been holding out hope. Some of you weren't quite quite weren't quite ready. See i'm not quite ready. It's difficult. It's difficult to talk about the cowboys being three nine but weren't quite ready to abandon hopes of winning the nfc east and commit yourself to team tank. Let's take a look at the remaining schedules in the nfc. East the dallas cowboys now. Three nine have. It's depends how you look at things. I think the cowboys win on sunday. As we're talking here. Now very late. Tuesday night depending on when you're listening to this or watching this but we're talking live late tuesday night. The cowboys will be in. Cincinnati on sunday to take on the what ryan finley led bengals. That's still a question mark but they'll probably win that game because as bad as the cowboys are. The bengals are worse. Now if you are truly tim tank. The cowboys have to find spectacular. Way to lose this because this game against the bengals whoever wins or loses this is going to be the difference between picking third overall and fourth overall. So if you are team tank you are really looking for a way to mess this thing up if you're the dallas cowboys but after that next week to cowboys will host the san francisco forty niners on sunday night football so if you thought the national dragging cowboys was over think again after that to cowboys will host the philadelphia eagles. Which mentioned is now at different game because of the jalen hurts factor. So it's hard to expect the eagles to be the same disaster they've been under carson wentz and finally week seventeen to was a visit jason garrett new york giants and probably lose that game so think the cowboys win maybe four games meet. Maybe maybe five again. It's possible but let's look at this and the jalen hurts. Factor is very real but the eagles this week. They've got the new orleans saints after that the arizona cardinals and the cardinals are appearing to be a bit more of a fraudulent team than any of us expected. I mean there are crazy. Deondraye hopkins catch away from having lost five games in a row. So you never know. We'll get back to the in a second. But then the eagles are in dallas and then the eagles finish up at home against washington football team. We all think that they will lose that game. It's possible the eagles don't win another game. That is possible truth and they might end up picking higher than the cowboys the giants this week. They have those cardinals at home after beating the seattle seahawks on the road. I don't think you can count the giants out of that game. Which is crazy to say. So you've got the giants the cardinals and the browns. The pilots that they play the ravens. Who cowboys just got destroyed by. Play the cowboys. So you're talking about the giants who are already five winds probably get into seven. I think that's doable. And then the washington football team also sitting on five wins. They've got the san francisco forty niners this week and it's possible to cowboys. Good jimmy garoppolo. And george kittle back. Which would not be fun unless you are tank but for now washington. Football team will get forty niners without them. That is maybe a win. And then you've got washington playing the seattle seahawks and another seahawks loss to the giants. Whatever i don't think that the lose to washington but washington plays the current panthers in the penultimate week of the regular season and that is a big. Let's win it. For ron rivera game and so i do think that washington will win there and i think the washington wins in week. Seventeen against philadelphia. I think the washington maybe gets to eight and that might be enough to win the nfc east ultimately washington should be the favorite. If you're a person who likes to partake in those types of things. But i certainly would not be shocked if the new york giants find a way. Christopher says it's another last season it sucks. I mean yeah that does suck but this season was lost way back when dak prescott hurt his ankle all right. The season didn't become loss. Because the andy dalton led cowboys couldn't get it done or the bend in new zealand cowboys or the garrett gilbert let this season was lost when dak prescott got her and you think about the mountain of injuries at the cowboys have had to deal with it is it is really ridiculous..
"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"On a major podcast platforms because we know that news is constantly changing with regards to the cowboys. I do think that those original comments were taken out of context. I understood would exert your but he really put it in a bad way and so when he'd come out and you play like he did against the ravens it just those things come back to haunt you. Xavier had a moment early in the second half against lamar jackson and to be clear. It's a very difficult thing to tackle into. Stop lamar jackson. But it felt like exhibit woods had a shot on third down to stop lamar into to force the ravens to pump and it just felt like he didn't try hit a really awful penalty in the first really questionable decisions. And so the cowboys right now. Hold the top five pick. If the today at obviously doesn't there's still a month left but it's it's difficult to sort of analyze assess how the cowboys should spend their top five pick because they seemingly have so many directions that they can go. that's ultimately a good thing and a bad thing at the same time lets see. Tiny is double. Oh seven on youtube says rj. It felt like defensively. They didn't even try. And i. it's hard right. It's hard for us to sit here and throw stones. It's hard for us to sit here by the way we would. We would complete those stones against dallas cowboys defense. But it's hard for us to to ridicule and criticise effort right because we don't know the actual effort that's being given get this comment because it did kind of seem like that. It does kind of seem like this cowboys team has effectively quit and is effectively. Just kind of going through the motions. Now there's four games left whatever you know. We're three nine and of the. Nfc is bad but the new york giants one the washington football team won. You know we're kind of out of it at this point. I know that it's mathematically possible and it is it is still mathematically possible but it just it kind of feels like everybody's just fine laying up on the rest of the season and i like to go for it and oftentimes. It doesn't mind well for me but you get the picture you get the idea. It is not a good look for this football team. It is not a good look for mike mccarthy and to be clear mike mccarthy has done a lot and been dealt. A lot really is what i should say. I mccarthy's faced a number of challenges. Every coach's face challenges this season. We all know that we get that. I'm not personally out on mike mccarthy yet but i am down on him after this game. I thought this was one of the worst games. That mike mccarthy has coached so far for the dallas cowboys a of people so far in our comments are down. On andy dalton. I don't think that. Andy dalton played terribly. It was not a great performance. But look. let's let's talk about. Let's get some highlights. Okay let's look at some highlights for a second and then we'll kind of put this whole thing together if you're watching on youtube either. Live or after the fact and thomson donovan wilson. I'd in this game theory in early in the game. Got an interception off of lamar jackson. Nobody in their right mind was expecting terry and thompson of all people to be the one to come away with an interception and he did so kudos to him. The dallas cowboys. It was their only turnover of the game. Nice to see if you're defense as bad if you should be running all the way down to the camera and doing that whole dance but you know. Do what you wanna do and thompson. It's your interception. You can party how you want to another highlight worth showing you michael. Gallup hen scored a touchdown since week. Three back all the way against the seattle seahawks while he caught one here tonight which was very impressive. Shoutout to michael. Gallup shadow mario cooper late in the game very late in the game. Actually amari cooper coty touchdown after the cowboys could not get in with ezekiel elliott. Who jerry jones is said. The best player on the dallas cowboys and assertion. I think he would like to have back. I want to show you this high. Because i think it's important. Justin tucker had not missed inside of forty yards in seventy tries. Joe buck cursed him and finally got him to miss on number seventy one. But justin tucker missing in this context and in fact this kind of steers us into a conversation point that i want to really hit. Actually here's the justin tucker thing again. One second here breath coleman who does a great job covering the nfl on twitter at brett. Coleman tweeted out this tweet. Justin tucker has said a few times that mt bank stadium is the hardest place to kick in the league. Ever since they put in the new scoreboard it change the wind patterns. And now it's swirls more instead of being a static direction wind makes it tough on kickers. I'm curious if you are with us. Live right now on youtube. Do you blame greg's aligned or mike mccarthy more for the broken nece that we saw on tuesday night because i blame michael mccarthy and this is where i really have a bone to pick with him i mentioned i do winners and losers every week after every cow going blog on boys dot com and mike mccarthy is my ultimate loser greg's orleans a loser because i mean if you missed three field goals you're going to be on the losers no matter what but as mentioned it is obviously difficult to make feel even for the great justin tucker at bank stadium and when the cowboys were down by fourteen points at the beginning of the fourth quarter down by fourteen points. Mike mccarthy elects to try to kick a field okay now even if you make this field you go from being a two possession game to a two possession game even in the best possible result world. Your two possessions situation is still a two possessions situation. I realized it was a long fourth dan. I realized the couch often been moving the ball. But you know what. I realized that this particular stadium is difficult to kick. It is so difficult to kick into greg's orland had already missed twice on the night. Justin tucker had already missed once on the night and so to that point. I think there's there's two possibilities here. This was either move of extreme cowardice by mike mccarthy and his staff to try to kick this field right like oh man we're going to do. We can't score. Let's kick a field goal or this was a code right up time to tank time to like a lot of people greg williams did. I don't agree with that. But it was either that or it was. That really is the point here. And so i put that on mike mccarthy and there were a lot of poor decisions in this game the cowboys went for it on fourth down Ultimately it was a better decision from playcalling standpoint that we saw last week against washington but there was a lot of broken this in this game. A lot of you are criticizing. Mike nolan in our youtube. Comments in. Who's who's disagreeing with that mike..
"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"Game of the season the dallas cowboys losing on a tuesday night playing their first game ever on a tuesday. Losing to the baltimore ravens. Thirty four to seventeen the final score. That both feels like not totally representative of the game and both equally representative of the entire game. The ravens were no match for the cowboys. Dallas was never really in this game. I think from a score perspective. They certainly were were one possession down two possessions down things. We're kind of close at certain points. But i always felt like they really weren't. It always felt like they were really far away. Felt like the cowboys. Even though they had more than twice the amount of time to prepare for this in the ravens did that they were just outmatched out. Prepared out talented. This this game obviously featured a lot of prominent players for the ravens. The ravens lost a lot of these players to the covid nineteen list for their wednesday game last week against the pittsburgh steelers but most of them returned and most of them were back and so they made hey. They made their way and they had a lot of fun. They were even laughing at the dallas cowboys. And so there's a lot to focus on it. There's a lot to blame. We're going to do that here on our post game show. If you are joining us live on youtube let us know in the comments. Know what you liked which is probably not a lot. Let us know what you did not like. We already have some people. Christopher lopez says from imperial valley southern california. What's up christopher hopes. Okay street you all this time of year. Hope the weather's nice. I hope it's not frightful as they say. But chris starting us off says we need a defense jalen. Smith is not a star. Here's the thing. Jalen smith is is bad right. We all agree. Jalen smith has not been the player that the dallas cowboys kind of hype him up to be even still continually. I don't think the jalen smith was awful in this game. I thought leighton vander esch actually struggled in this game. The lamar jackson run. That housed was not a great moment for leighton vander esch but yeah. I mean so overall the cowboys linebacker. According to be completely reworked the cowboys safety situations to be completely reworked. I write winners and losers after every cowboys. Game at blogging. The boys dot com xavier. Woods is one of my losers. let's get into all of it. Let's let's kinda start at the beginning though because this game is terrible and his awkwardness. Unfortunate as it was really got off to a very weird start this was supposed to be the rematch for the dallas cowboys. Right dez bryant now a member of the baltimore. Ravens was going to play against his former team for the first time. Does road back to the. Nfl has been well chronicled. Where all grooten for desk trying to see him succeed trying to see. Throw the x. Up again until you were high type to see this game. I think i think speaks out of cowboys fans and that i wanted to see dez score. I wanted to see him. Throw up the eggs against the cowboys and might not have had the same juice as it would have had done that against jason garrett for example but it still would have been very interesting but that was not to be the case dez. Bryant broke the news actually before the game started about thirty games before the game started tweeting. Tell me why they pulled me from warning. I've so i can go get tested. My my something comeback positive. I tested positive for kobe. W t f our thoughts. Our prayers are well wishes with dez. We wanted to be as healthy as possible. This was a huge shock and really kind of sent a ripple effect through the beginning of this game and kind of called the game into question in general and. I don't wanna get political. I don't wanna make this a discussion about how you may or may not feel about current climate but it is so impossible to believe that dez bryant could test positive for covid and not have anybody around him be deemed somebody. That should be taken away from the game as well. That's hard to explain to an average person. That's a difficult proposition to understand. In so a lot of people were kind of concerned it added a really surreal effect to the idea that the nfl said dez. Bryant was supposed to play this game. That's kicking off and thirty minutes. He's he's not gonna play because he tested positive. We'll be back after this. And it'll be time to throw to joe troy for kickoff coming up and it just was a really weird way to sit. Dez was very active on twitter throughout the game. It was a lot of fun. spoke for a lot of cowboys. Fans i think at one point two hundred about to drink some wine and cope talking about his own situation does did have some fun later in the evening on twitter but that does i think speak for a lot of cowboys fans feel right now because the cowboys really bad. The cowboys are three and nine. Now after this loss of the baltimore ravens they have ensured a losing record for the first time since two thousand fifteen in cowboys fans are pissed off. We're bother we are upset because look we all. Let's let's be clear. Let's say this at the beginning of this conversation. We know that this team has bad right. We know that this team is missing. Dak prescott we know that there are talent issues and there are health issues and there are injury issues and there are emotional issues. Dallas cowboys have been through a lot this season. We are all while recognizing of that fact. However it's kind of hard to deal not only with the fact that the team is bad but at the team is seemingly up very little effort your woods kind of headlines that i think And a lot of people really kind of point back to save your comments a few months ago about how you can't give one hundred percent on every play. We talked about that on the blog of the boys podcast network. We do a podcast every twelve hours. If you didn't know you can subscribe.

"Brian anthony davis hot cast producers. You know us. We were just here last night but you know what a lot has changed in twenty four hours. The pittsburgh steelers aren't playing on tuesday. They're playing on wednesday and not only are. They is the game in week. Thirteen against the washington. Football team moved from sunday to monday. All but it gets better the baltimore ravens game which was going to be on monday against the dallas cowboys got moved to tuesday. The nfl's giving them a little bit of an extra break. Why i have no freaking idea. But i'll tell you this i'll tell you this. I am fuming said on twitter. I'm pretty level headed guy you know never too. I never too low. I am a fan. I mean a pretty level headed guy. But i'll tell you what. I am fuming right now of keeping. It contained thirds days. Go fuel dave and let you go. I go all right. Have you guys ever seen the movie. Signs. yes yes okay. With mel gibson and joaquin phoenix. Okay i'm not one for profanity myself. But you know the scene where they go. He's run around the house and start screaming in. Swear he's like you want me to swear yes where and he actually did. That's how i feel right now and that's what you guys get for me. It would be something really really awkward and crazy like that but you know what. I'm the one who said. We need to have an airing of grievances of death. Because i was glad you this is going to be a stone bro. Show tonight but then bryan jumped in with the hangover because we had to completely change your schedule around this afternoon. Try to accommodate a wednesday game or as geoffrey benedict has so appropriately named this game the after school special game because of three forty on wednesday. I think that's perfect hilarious. But i'll have to say is this. I've kinda. I've gone along with the whole wang. Harbs with you guys for a while but deep down inside. I'm like you know what. I kind of have some respect for this guy. He's a good coach bogue blah. That's gone that dude. Has the most punishable face in america. I mean. I just wish that. I had that opportunity. I would've make a shout out to the steelers players right now right now. Anybody on the steelers you will be the all-time greatest steelers player in the mind and hearts of behind the steel curtain. If at some point during the game you find a way whether it's on the sideline with a kick returner something frigging take that guy to the ground ground. You're our heroes for forever. I mean for some reason roger. Goodell have sure. I'm going roger goodell who i have to ask if he has has ruined his shoot for that huge vagina. Got your preference for how how i met your mother and gives. You haven't heard that before. Does he have reuben because what happened to this first. They looked weak and feeble when good old wang is going to tell the nfl what to do by shutting down facility until after they were supposed to play. Didn't they come back like. Oh yeah. we're big and bad we're strong. You're gonna play denver broncos now. Don't get me wrong. That's a completely different situation. So i don't wanna go onto a waiting those too but they appear like they're all strong just the nfl our go to do what we wanna do. And they just voted to that guy once again. They're like we're just not going to show up to play. We're gonna take our ball day in baltimore. And what about go ahead. Save some ammunition. Dave naming grievances. I got alarm problems of you. People and that's perspective is way brian go ahead. Who would've thought that. I'd be the most calm guy in a room seriously. The part of brennan. Anthony davis is being played. Tonight by david scofield you. Yeah i'm i'm angry too and i had a chance to vent on the steelers hangover. That seems like we just did that. I mean inflicted just happened. Oh oh yeah. I guess we did and one of the things we talked about is if dan rooney were alive. Would this be happening. you know. that's that's a question that You know we had some debate on that. But what i'm really angry about is this was controllable. This was preventable. I talk yesterday. I didn't explain it as well on the preview. When i said not in my house which john harbaugh should've went to. The coach started this. That had his mask down the was not doing the contact tracing not wearing the bracelet and say. Hey that's against the rules none of my house instead. He let it happen in this house. Obviously in hell happened other places in his house and he was allowing it to happen. I know this is a boy. Bryant has bumped himself hold on. I know what happens. When you're half italian user genet so i know this is allegedly but the thing about it is he. Let this happen now. Word came out that there was only one guy who tested positive. A player that was on the injured reserve. That was your highly quarantined that would not affect the situation whatsoever and word came out that allegedly. I'll say that again that they were threatening a wildcat strike. I don't know if that's true. Mike florio. He reported this that they were threatening not to play. If this game was going to be on tuesday now this game was being moved. Tuesday from thursday because something that happened in has house that they caused and now they're threatening a strike. They're threatening to take their ball and come home. i'm not going your party wa wa wa you now. I'm reading that. It looks like dobbins ingram. The guys who started this whole thing are going to be able to play in this game if you're going to allow that to happen when they help because the problem. Well i've got a problem with people to and i'm really angry this now. I gotta figure out how to watch his game three forty on a work day. This is absolutely ridiculous. The ravens never intended to play this game. They wanted this for week eighteen. I know this is going against what they want. They did not want to play this game this week. I fully agree in my own head about that. Now anybody in the live chat that wants to challenge me from baltimore. That's a baltimore fan. That wants to troll me. I will end you. And i'm not. I'm not putting up with that today. I put up with a little bit of it yesterday. A little bit earlier today. And i'm not having it either so i'm out batting myself right now but now i'm getting fired up. This is ridiculous. The steelers sure they had some guys did that tested positive as well. They're back not all of them are back. They're not playing. That is a part of the cove world that we're living in. And i understand that. I don't want anybody to come on here and say well. This is about human life. We've we can't get upset about a game stop it. we're fans. I understand the human lights thing. I have people in my house that are immuno compromised. I'm a cancer survivor. i understand myself. i'm compromised. But i go out every day and i understand it and safest possible but when you shirk the roles then you need to get shirked back. The innocent parties in this are the ones that are getting jerked around and check out the live mike tomorrow. That's that's titled. The steelers are getting screwed. I can't wait to hear that because it's true. Jeff dave kind of chevy chase on christmas vacation when he finds out that he's getting the jelly of the month club and he just goes on. This obscenity laced tirade in. Here's the tylenol flu. Where's the tylenol. Jeff it's your turn your grievances come on. Yeah i mean to be totally honest with you. So it's been a buildup you know. I'm going to be honest. I was at my brother's house. My parents just my brother and his wife in our family and when the news broke game was going to be played on thursday. I actually started in article that talked about how people need to be patient like. Let's let's remember what we're talking about here. It goes to sue. Fans are gonna be upset. I get it. I'm upset young to be patient and then it went to a now. It's on sunday but it's going to be on. All right still still had that document. They're still have that article.

"baltimore ravens" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Pittsburgh steeler fans it is almost game time and it's just not any gametime. It's Ravens Week as co editor of. Jeff, Hartmann, likes to say it's Raven Hate Week and you know what? For me I live in Maryland so it's always raven hate week, but I gotTa Tell Ya. I really love this matchup I. Love this game and I love the fact that both of these teams are relevant unbroken Anthony. Davis alongside me is my good friend, Katie Smith Kevin. How are you doing? Are you ready for some Raven hate? Week man that's a beautiful thing. f. a shock you maybe a little bit with about to say but I, if I hate the Ravens. I disliked him intensely but I I have a lot of respect for them. You know like I have no respect for the bengals whatsoever you know they're an easy team to hate. The Ravens are a worthy adversary you know. As John Goodman. Famously said the big Lebowski a worthy adversary. So yeah I disliked him intensely man but you know and I and I love beaten but I do respect the organization I agree with that too I will actually say though Kevin that I really think that the ravens fans hate the steelers more than the steelers hate the Ravens and something I really do believe I actually feel that relations fans kind of go off the. Bandwagon when they're not playing well, steelers fans are there. Forever I will tell you this though I have a ton of respect for the Baltimore Ravens. I live about an hour away from Mt Bank. Stadium Jeff and I were on a school bus accompanying our kids who they were like first grade at the time and we were accompanying them to the aquarium in Baltimore and we're both going past the stadium just like cover me. I'm like what he's like. Give stadium the finger I'm like I do the same thing every single time and Jeff's last person that would ever say that. So you know it's just living in the state of Maryland that does that for me as well but. I agree with you on the Bengals I don't respect the browns either that's a team that I just don't respect and when I see a Ravens Fan, we always talk and I'm always very cordial about it because I do not like to show my but with Ravens fans and McKay luck. What are we have in common their like what like? What we both went super bowls are like like we both hate the bangles they're like you're right and then we're bodies. So let's get onto one of the greatest match ups here on the steelers pre-game show. Yes, it's almost gametime. We are so ready I forgot to tell you the title of it. This is just a fantastic week. The steelers are six and Oh, the ravens are five and one the stakes cannot be higher in Kevin for me. The reason the stakes cannot be higher is the. Fact that we've talked about this in the past this going to be a top heavy and a bottom heavy year in the standings, there's not going to be a lot of eight and eight. If you look teams with less than two losses or two losses or less, they're seven teams with two wins or less. They're seven their sixteen teams in the conference there's only two three and three teens. That's how top and bottom heavy it is. So Kevin, can you see a team here winning this division? With less than thirteen wins. Less than thirteen wins will let's see I mean you know I'm looking at thinking about the steelers schedule and You know they would they have to go. They'd have to go seven and three over the final ten to get to be at thirteen that seems pretty realistic because I don't think their schedules that difficult move towards matter of fact, this might be the toughest game you know on that schedule so it wouldn't surprise me office dealer skip thirteen wins in Baltimore's darn good. So Yeah, you know I mean I kind of would be surprised me honestly I expect one of those two teams to get to thirteen. Statistically the Ravens have the easiest schedule in the league. The steelers have the second easiest schedule in the. Only difference is the steelers play the bills and the broncos and the Ravens play the chiefs which they've already played and the Patriots who are not the same. So as far as that goes, they play the same teams all the way across the board. It's not like last year when you're playing teams like Seattle, San Francisco, and the Rams and even the cardinals that could be a threat to beat you every week. Nobody scary in that NFC east they're probably GONNA go eight now combined against the NFC East Kevin Dempsey is is a bad football division right now dining the fact that the eagles are in first place is just stunning i. mean the Eagles are a JV team right now and I mean that's not necessarily a knock on them. They're so beat up and so injured and just playing guys that you know they kind of. Picked out of a flag football league somewhere basically in and they're in first place in the east. So yeah I mean I. Don't know if it's a good year to be playing them or not, but were benefiting no doubt. So you have to win these Games these head to head games are so crucial this year more than ever because when you're looking for help from another team, you're not going to be likely to get it. The steelers got lucky. They got help from the Super Bowl. Champs, they don't have to play the Super Bowl Champs, but the ravens don't have to. Pay The bills in buffalo like the steelers do as well. So it's one of those things. The Patriots in the broncos might be awash because the Patriots aren't that good this year. So if you don't win these head games, you're not going to win the division. The steelers have the luxury. If they win this game, they're not only up by two. They have half of the tiebreaker already in that is a pretty big deal but Kevin. Let's talk about this is where these teams ranked Kevin as far as total offense total defense and some of them, some of the ranks will surprise you here. So, let's go ahead with the total yardage on offense. You would think that Baltimore would be pretty high as for his total yards wouldn't you? Yeah I mean they they can run in throw they do the do the former a lot better but I know Jackson's numbers are not up this year. So they're probably a little further down in the rankings. So total yardage. Pittsburgh leads here. They're ranked twenty first with three hundred and fifty eight point seven yards per game. Baltimore's twenty-seventh with three, hundred and forty two point two yards per game in rushing both teams are doing pretty well when I say pretty well for the Baltimore Ravens I'm GonNa see fantastic 'cause they are the number one rushing team in the league at one sixty four, point three, the Pittsburgh steelers are at number eleven with one hundred, twenty, nine point, seven yards per game. And so that's that's pretty decent. It's not bad to be ranked right outside of the top ten they're in a thirty, two team league passing. Pittsburgh is only twenty three at two, hundred, twenty, nine yards per game. That just means when you have a running game, you don't have to pass as much. where. Do you think Baltimore is Kevin They're going to be lower than the steelers for sure I. Know I know, Lamar Jackson's only got about somewhere in the neighborhood eleven hundred yards passing this year.

"Jonas Shaper of the Baltimore Ravens Righty, by the Baltimore Sun e calls in talk about Ravens and one, it's been light to adjust to his new media lifestyle. And then I talked about the Justin fields petition what it could mean. Even having an effect. College football. And I don't think it will finally. Tug I give my picks for the first round of the NBA playoffs. All that on the show, let's go up. All right. Joining me now, Jones Schaefer, Baltimore Ravens writer for the Baltimore Sun. You can follow us on twitter at Jonas Underscores Shaffer Jonas. Thank you for taking your time to call into one done radio. So everything going on, we know what's happening with the pandemic and for the media I know it's different for you guys what's been like for you guys handling everything right now. Strange Monday will be the first time of the rate of civility since fiscal last season ended. Everything has been virtual on much everything from our couches and our desks. Continue being strange because training camp is usually a place for. Get guys after practice pulled him. Aside, I try to tell their stories and unique way We still think we can do that. But because of the pandemic like mentioned, there's going to be low in person interviews this year right after Kazan's if you WANNA ask John have a question you have to do it over soon call other the ravens just like every other NFL extreme measures to keep their guys saved. I know some other team civilities, Agra orders a swap for a virus. We are just having our temperatures taken I'm not be allowed to silly so it's going to be different coverage but. I understand totally by. Every precaution they his Jewish Mike this. At least not getting a full. Check with a thing. Nose every single day. So couple of years ago I know in the middle of season there was some when before Lamar Jackson even played, there's talks that harbaugh would have been let go. There was no some rumbles of it happening that he played Lamar. Now we have a former MVP Lamar Jackson and coach of the year John Harbaugh. What is it about Harbaugh that? He just there's some coaches that league they just say this is my way we're going to do it, and if you don't fit the system, you know we'll get out. We'll go somewhere else. We'll figure somebody else out but harbaugh showed that's like listen I find whatever is the best pupil my players in the best position to succeed what is about hobble where he's able to find every player's potential. I A willingness to adapt and to be flexible to. Try New things I mean per as credible as last season was. With the Ravens having. NFL's top off and having a good defense by then. You go back and look at that twenty eighteen. It's almost as the president did not more because. Basically midstream that team went from being a typical trump troutbeck pro-style up and joe FLACCO. To one that was. Dominant that had a lot of different zone re concepts a Lotta Kinda college style rpo op stuff, and the Ravens Guts Plastic Guzman they lost just one game over this season second half. For them to completely I jumped ship and go from one kind of another and for really benefit. Team which already had a creaky. I think just spoke to people and and. You know show just how China is a coach. Affleck's one could be even when. I confront some some very, very difficult circumstances. Now you mentioned the Great Defense and obviously the offense best offense in the league, we had last year so they added two key pieces to the offense in. The one piece of defense to the draft. They drafted Pager Queen and J K Dobbins both who I believe are going to have immediate impact on teen. Give me a rookie was not one of those players that will also have impact on the team either offensively or defensively I think if you look at the ball. Starter I'll see them but they really seem to like Maliki Harrison the third round linebacker that they got out of Ohio state is a much bigger God at Queen. He was about four six in the forty when he ran the combine and he's just you know your prototypical strong side. Linebacker, at a I can have him clean lockdown fans for the next four years or so. They can have maybe have brushed the edge. They did a little bit at Ohio state and I just in need some help at linebacker because they has talked last village Josh Pons Breed. See I begin to refine Patrick over the jets. So you can have those as LBJ for the return starter at some of the other guys. Come back I keep really ask good depth was at is. About squawk last year was. All right. So there was obviously pictures and videos of Lamar, Jackson Antonio Brown working out what are the chances that they actually sign him I think the probably not great. There is that relationship with the Ravens have out with Antonio Brown Chester South, Florida cash, and obviously Mar is they broward county guide coach Mark Piece Brown is rockies. Brown is of course. The first round last year. The cousin Antonio Brown up there is that that the family connection there but I think the ravens as good as their locker room as for as. I can will upset whilst you today would be to to handle someone with a Tony Brown's personality. Let's put it. I just think that the Ravens. Probably, don't want to introduce someone with his volatility into what they're trying to. Greedier in his locker room so You know because of the fact that he's been suspended pearly state games, it could be more at none that that's Is separate assault charges because of the fact that you know huge obviously hasn't played anywhere Since we to last year I just think that they're probably hoping that some team you like Seattle Pittsburgh Aby just take take him author hands at that because I don't think the Ravens are are They got these perceiver stuff wonder week fats. But if they can do better just with the guy that had annouce. Now, I do a couple of one kind of. Same sort of so want to actually give you know you're from Baltimore along give you three. Celebrity facts and see basically or false. So if this person was born in Maryland or not. All right I actor or athlete or famous person Michael Phelps. Cure Sauce. Out. I don't know why. Why.

We went through a phase of speed rushers. Who is the Landry? Who is the the Georgia guy went to Steelers Loyd now and other one? But yeah, I can do pre. No, no, the other guy opposite him. Doesn't matter. They're like seven or eight speed rushers in like three or four year span that basically all of them busted out, and that it goes back to exactly what I was saying, I learned lessons over the years. And it's the biggest one is you go down the NFL go to ESPN dot com and go to the the sack rankings every year. Almost all of those guys are bigger or have power elements to their game. Almost all of like the top ten fifteen sack is almost every single year. We did a study on it because I was starting to get pissed off because Like like. like like, I'm watching and these guys are productive, and I see the speed and the explosiveness, and then it finally clicked and I remember telling Kevin white who now works with the the Baltimore Ravens is their southeastern scout. I remember being like we need to. Let's let's sit down. Let's look we've got to fix this. Because we've liked a couple of these guys, and we shouldn't.

Now, the trade is not going to be officially processed until the new league year begins March thirteenth, but according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
