Emergency Episode: Cam Newton

"This is Christine Brown and while I have to listen to this podcast. As my mother Judy, you have the choice not to my son's sometimes say some naughty things when they're trying to be funny, but really just being stupid. You still want to listen. Go right ahead I am not your. Welcome to your emergency episode. Patriots Dynasty podcast. Are. Not! Our usual programming. We usually do things twenty years in the in the past, but today we thought we do. A special one kind of like. We did with the Tom Brady News. This is. As big boys bigger. What do you think? Those auctions yeah. Less big. I think. Well it certainly more exciting for us as a fan. Well I think if you were to take our tone from the of the last emergency episode in this one they they'd be. Markedly different. See they're both like someone expected though. I don't think either. They were like completely out of left field. Breed to the box wasn't out of left field. Will Brady going somewhere else wasn't out of Iraq. And, like where else was Cam Newton Really GonNa Sign Yeah Tennessee. They just paid tannahill. Back up I mean as a starter. That was the problem with all. This right is somewhere where he can start right. But I gotta say very very excited for him to come to England was your. What was your immediate reaction? How stokes how describe? Her. Moving on next question, getting focused. Honestly. My I was is going to matter if we don't have a season. Good point I'm a little pessimistic about whether. There's actually yeah, and well to this point. It was so nice to have something on the Internet that was like enjoyable to like. Go through. Read it about you know enjoyable. Patriots News Yeah. It's Daddy News. Anything I haven't had anything that hasn't angered me the Internet in like two months, and finally just got the fuck around. Say some fun jokes, and like you know. I don't know you didn't like all the. The releases of the uniforms everybody shitting on the los. Angeles ones. Yeah, that's kind of fun, but this was. Whenever these like huge breaking news in the NFL that's when social media is the best because everyone's like, it's like it's not like people. People are being mean they're just kinda like fucking around, and then you can let go and read other fan bases like reactions. In the. It's just it's. That's what I like about sports is. We're not taking too serious, but we're all avid. A good time and everyone's talking about it. Yeah that's true. Brings everybody together in. In different ways. Everybody's still like is always talking about the same thing. Everybody on the same page. I actually screen shotted. Some stuff from red. At that I thought was funny. Oh I'm excited. Radio all. User You blow me a jets fan. Comedy? Going going to grab the Bleach at Oh another jets fan responded. You don't keep it within arms reach. Let's see a bills fan. Gael Bridge just said Fuck. That's it and then someone else said Astute observation. Garbage. This fresh prince, nine eight seven steelers fan, says as an Auburn and steelers as an Auburn and steelers fan I'm going to go jump off a roof. Quite sure how Auburn fits into that, but okay. Yeah, this is long. He's a Patriot says is I have no idea what to do with my hands right now and someone responded. You know what to do. Bills Division favorites March Twenty Twenty June twenty twenty. I saw that the jared stood stidham the savior. Yeah, yeah, there's a lot of like erection. Talk out there like people being talked tour having Boehner so. Let's just some good on the Internet you know this is. Made for where they were predicting, he'd be the line starting quarterback in twenty twenty one. I think I saw that, too. That's. About Calvin Johnson, coming out of retirement and Trade Newton for Stafford. Like the one that it was Basketball video of everybody. Just, putting their heads down dejected -ly and it was The AFC east upon hearing the news this morning. You got to feel for them, you know. As a jets bills dolphins fan you're like this is a year. It's wide open was can win it. And I haven't checked Vegas Vegas odds, but I I would venture to guess there were probably favorites. I heard it on the radio where now tied for favorites to win the division with the bills? Okay, that makes sense. I think as of this afternoon, yeah. Did you see the the pitcher of him his newest outfit. He's wearing the tri corner hat and like A. I saw the one the militiamen. Bell Jack wearing a scarf with like dreads. STUPID GLASSES! I've I was impressed with how quickly people photo shots. Cam Newton in a patriots uniform. That only Mos me away. The memes are immediate. But even these photo shops they looked. Completely realistic. And somebody who dabbles in photoshop badly I I understand how much work that is deadly. Don't sell yourself short andy. You're the best photo person I know personally. Yeah! Didn't you like Photoshop? Greg and Danny into that thing of brokeback mountain. Yeah. Definitely Greg Davis in their shadow Danny. and. It was Debbie does Dallas. DVD cover VHS Donna. With Greg he does Dell's. Or the time that you? Your Christmas gift to me was burned ten CDs. Who Sack it for care whose face was, but you put him on every album cover. There was my roommate joey bear. Yeah, that was that was legendary. Right. Rank. The ABC's quarterbacks now number one Jarret Stidham. Number two CAM Newton. Remember, three Brian Hoyer. Number four Jillian Element. Number Five Mohamed. Nice question. really everyone says assuming is GonNa step in and start. What if you're beat them out heuer? Well there is, there was a valid point. I listened to Cal Colin Coward talk about today and. I think she don't mind him, but he was saying. Like with. Learning the playbook like a big piece this right especially, if you have a short off, season, and people can't get into facilities to expect images show up on day one and be like running a complicated offense. That's a tall order. As stardom sorry have already had a season with the play ball. You know he's got the coach's respect so. I think there is some truth to that. Yeah I! Uh, also point out that you did call them. Stem I appreciate that. Yeah, why what do you call? Now? That's what I call. That's why I want to exclusively yeah. Yeah I think as a point to that, but I also think with Brady leaving Josh. mcdaniels is kind of has an opportunity to revamp the book anyway. So for? Whoever the new quarterback is, he can. Kind of cater the new places into their their strengths, so with a Cam Newton. Come in, they could. foreseeably, put you know plays in that. He's comfortable with or work with him. To build a brighter more simplified playbook at the beginning and build it up from there. You want to hear my my theory on this okay. I don't know if anyone I haven't seen. Anyone mentioned it but the Baltimore comparison. To the way they run their offense Hispanic here. He athletic quarterback like a good offensive line. Multiple options running back. They just drafted two tight ends, which is a big part of Baltimore's offense. The just brought in that fullback to. Yeah who's weapon both running catching? Yeah, and then also look like a defense defensive prevent exactly as well yeah, and the turnaround of that system. If you remember was like really quick where they had flacco in there, and then once they benched him. It was like they switched superfast that new offense. Yes, so I'm thinking. It's not terribly complicated. It's just hard to defend. You might be right. He's for this season and build up from there. To call all the way to Baltimore, you know. Like No. I think it could start incorporating some elements, but most stay some of the same. What was it? To be in theory better, throw the ball downfield then. And of these other like quote, unquote, run I. QUARTERBACK! That's what I've been seeing right. You've all I can say comparing him to like Michael Vick. And all this, but everybody keeps giving the nod to Cam Newton thrower. He's not an accuracy guy. He's always been like he's like a career like sub sixty percent. Can. Still Virginia would he needs to go. He's a big. He's a big play guy, you know. And and and he can fit in tight spots. Play I could foreseeably see them. Like, basing their offense off of what the Ravens did. But also opening up the the playbook to more passing place off of that. Now. Dependent on the run. Yeah, but that's why this is so exciting is because I think I. Mean you've always seen a patriots kind of like? Base their system around their roster, but there's limitations that because Brady has always been that one mainstay right so you? You changed so much because you're not gonNA change away from the strengths of Brady, but now it's like a completely open ended question to see how far they are willing to like adapt this offense. I mean. Whatever the best interest of the players right of putting him in his position succeed, even like star owns more mobile than people give credit for. So you could see and probably gonNA incorporate more backgrounding guardless this year. I mean I think he's more mobile than Brady? I wouldn't put him as a run. I quarterback or even like a running quarterback in general. He's like A. Like a Sam Bradford you know. He runs, but you're not. You're not going to begin planning to prevent this. I don't know dude. He had had fourteen rushing touchdowns on year his rookie season. Yeah, that's more than most running backs but were. Like like an rpo thing that he struggled in yeah. So yeah, I mean he like I, said he's more than Brady, but he's not somebody that you game plan for like a Patrick Mahomes you know. Hank you sleep not at a little bit here. Cam Newton. Has More design run. No, he's averaging like a hundred plus Russia's season over. At one thirty, nine, no in at Carolina. Oh who you talking about? Newton. Oh talking about. Starting. Him. He's a bumder now. Here. Newton's running around. That's that's the take world knowing love Greg. Z's done already. Yeah the train on, imagine if you bought a jersey. I guarantee people out. There have don houses. Yeah. There was a lot of people on twitter and facebook in social media in general just. All about how the fact that bell check didn't draft. A quarterback means that this is stems team in obviously, they've seen something in. which I think may still be true. Yes Sir you also don't pass up somebody who was. Vp of the League and took his team to fifteen one. and has always given you as defense problems whenever you matched them. And get him for the League minimum. That's that's the most insane part about this whole thing contract, yeah! So explain to me what what was the contract? I mean from what I read. It's like a million dollar base contract plus incentives to go up to seven and a half right, yeah! And they just gave Phil Rivers get like twenty two for a one year contract. Something like that was one easily. Bridgewater. Bridgewater got a twenty million dollar plus contract to get. The Max deal being a third of what they're paying. Teddy Bridgewater is like. Absolute insanity to me insanity. Though an average water hasn't done anything like. It doesn't make any sense. But if They had caught a bunch of people free up salary cap room, and then gone after care that says more about their their thoughts instead of than. We waited it out and finally got cam for the League minimum. Like. Why not there's no, there's no downside. 'cause the only downside you could see as I. is it GonNa. Affect how like stuttering feels about it sure? But every single team league would have taken that contract. Yeah? No brainer right which which makes you wonder how the hell did no one sign. Because the report was. Were saying that the Patriots the only one that had any real interest in them. That seems crazy when I'm looking at the twenty twenty quarterback salary lists. Because I know like he could've been probably paid a little bit more. A backup at the steelers are some other those teams like that. You would think even the Ravens. I think are looking for a backup like I don't know. The Rams backup is, but are three three yeah. Cam Newton be an upgrade. Kit Is that a real question, right? Yeah was three here. Let let me give you. Let me give you some names that are. The were in the one million dollar range lesson to those for twenty twenty for quarterbacks. Just over million Alex Tanny for the giants. Never heard of them, no! One point zero, five million Brian Hoyer I one point one point six nine million Mason Rudolph. The steelers CJ beathard for the forty niners. For the giants. Joe FLACCO for the jets one point two, seven, five million really. Drew Lock one point six million, Chad runny. Backup for the chiefs one point six. Ryan Griffin for the bucks. So back at Tom Brady, you'll never see the field one point six million. Jeff Driscoll. Droopy drippy driscoll drip drip and these. Three quarter million. Everybody else's over. Two million. Last time rg three started more than half the gains season. was his sophomore season. In two thousand thirteen. That doesn't mean he's not good. But who said he is good, Zapping upgrade came. Off Spot for rg three. Me To! Go the future the League back when he kinda love him. Yeah, and the Redskins just ran him to death. Apart, and then kept running them. You just never recovered. Rg Three on this list two and a half million this year. Yeah? Lamar Jackson. Two point five three million this year. Two thousand dollars more than rg three James, Winston two point six, but it's a perfect like this one year deal. I mean essentially what Newton's trying to do is parlay this into a bigger contract, right? Now, trying to one year, prove it on a good team with a good coaching staff. And then next year. You'll still only be like thirty one thirty two sign like a huge deal again. Right. Has worked for him in the past like he went when he went, he was at Florida originally behind Tibo. Nan. He'll either. Got Booted from the university or left it on early sure. But then he went to junior college and then Auburn and one is in a national championship. And just like torched the entire college football landscape. So he's got it in them, you know that kind of like fuck you attitude. which is. Plays well with the Patriots Tier Right. So. That's great. Pits and two point without this contract for. Cam Newton. The Patriots are pay a combined, lets you. Two point two two point eight million dollars for all the quarterbacks. So even if Cam Newton earns his seven half-million, you're looking at what also math on that ten eleven million. Give or take that cap number for all incentives are. Now, I haven't heard. Come Out, you know. But. Every Patriot quarterback combined will be even if Cam Newton hits. A seven half-million will be making less than Teddy Bridgewater. himself. And Carson. Wentz Matt Ryan. Alex Smith Kirk cousins. Basically anybody above him. We make an about being about as much as Mitch trubisky which is. All well and good except. The! Patriots have no cap space, so it's not like. Oh, I guess that brings up. The question is this. Is this a? Be this this whole thing getting. Cam Newton on a possibly washed up. Cam Newton on A. Killer deal is this. Because Bell Check has mismanaged the salary cap, or is it just another example of him workings magic? And having spent his money elsewhere on well, they have like eighty six million next year and free space so. They goes just in case of actually have about as much money. Available as you and I do. And you just want to help. I, think they're actually in the negatives right now to know. Opportunity Strike in. Yeah. So you don't see this as Belgium kind of. Having gotten stuck in a corner. Now this Greg's on the call. So this is genius. By bill fell check pure unadulterated genius news shift negotiation setup over years of Tom Brady finally laid himself as former MVP quarterback at a million dollar contract. Ella daily Thomas. Point. I? Mean what's the alternative right? The you just roll with a rookie quarterback I guess you could say. I don't think money's the reason inside Brady because a lot of that dead money is him anyways. Isn't it? The tackle, so it's like the alternatives are overspend for the Teddy Bridgewater is the world or On Newton I don't care what the salary gap is GimMe Newton, you know. That's a no brainer to I. mean even if it was just football, never mind what you're paying of I'll take Newton over bridgewater. I. Mean this is Great. This is great money management. Wow, so it's genius by Bella. Track I think it is yeah as far as I can. How can you say it's like anything? But you know like you got the possibility. That turns into a super bowl contender with the downside of. Nothing really. Million Dollars Yeah, and then you you're out of. Like. that. Stood could. Be legit. And beat out! Cam Newton for the starting job, and then be your. Starter for however many years. You know because he's the young guy installs ready contract. You can especially. If next year stadiums, they get the answer you still on his sub million dollar contract, and you have like Steve, said eighty something million dollars cap, space. WHAT THE FUCK Well so then I have a question for a d think ballot check is good at these. Like, not damaged goods necessarily, but like formerly. Like really highly value players bringing them in at A. At a bargain, would you say he's good at it or bad? At least I'd say he's. He's better than the average. He's had hits, MRS I'd say he's hit on more of the. Are they great imple- Five on the radar is Calvin Oi. No Like a second round, pick by the lions, so it's like might as well be a first rounder almost. They just could not utilizing trade like a seventh router forum and then turned into the awesome. That will our pockets that we've been talking about the Mike rebels exactly the same. Counter counterpoint Barky views MINGO. Hundred percent right. Yeah, and that's that's ultimately what it is right is. There's no downside to these moods where he brings these these guys and everyone talks. Like Oh, it brings in these veterans that are. You don't really remember the Mrs because they don't matter. It's not like they sink the team where your salary, but there's tons of them. You look through some of the names that have played team. You're like should have. Reggie Wayne Joey Galloway. Cinco you know like all these. Anthony. Hanes worth marines or it. Can Bring. We've missed on a ton of them, but it doesn't matter because you hit on Corey Dillon, Randy Moss Ryanair Center. Legally blind like. Twice. All you need to do really hit on a few of them and it's A. It's a successful strategy so I. Think we're. Can come is like the media circus that surrounds it. Cam doesn't come without. We very made some about his. Style dress? And help fence, and all that and there's a there's a fair bit of criticism. We talked about before about Cameron. T. Bo is a great example like that guy is just traveling media. Circus of Cinco Albert Hanes worth there the same way so. Raise the risk in that for other teens, but less so for the Patriots seem, and I think part of that, too is they're perfectly willing to just like? Cut ties with that. Robert. Handsworth, there were like this isn't working out. See later. As Pastor. Yeah exactly Antonio Brown! You know they just. They're not going to hang onto late to it. You know they just like. Here's a controversy to because they've. They've usually sign them for these. Incentive Laden contract it doesn't. there. There's never been one of those where they've cut the guy, and it's really come back to bite them. In terms of contract like the closest one I can think of Antonio Brown and I've felt that one to me. Elliot's Thomas was. Probably. Yeah, that's true. But I mean at least. A couple of years. Right. Which Poe made. It made me think they would've caught him sooner. He wasn't make that's policy was alright, Don he? He made some yeah. He's just, but that was the whole. Emmy retired after he got injured and I think that was that whole like two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine, where? Bell check felt like he lost the team. Right wasn't that was our own nine with the fourth and to game? And the rainy Ma Shona blatantly everybody showing up late to the. Two meetings because it's not some bullshit. Around then! Yes, I don't think it was as much as it was. Dylan Thomas it was just kind of like a whole clubhouse thing. But I think Adele Song is probably played into he now we're talking about Roman, Phifer being wicked, awesome and that we forget that. They brought him on in veteran's minimum, right. That's crazy. I. It was still like fairly bait. To get that out of what we've seen him do back in the one Oh do like that is insane production for veterans minimum right. But this is and I think part of it is. That the Patriots have a system and so that they know what they need to fit into that system kind of player. They need, so they can go and look at somebody. Who might not be getting attention from? All the other teams in the league like somebody. Like a Roman Phifer and so you know what we need or even my variables like we need this. Kind of Combo Edge Guy who's. Too Big to be alignment a linebacker, but too small to be defensive, and we need him to be able to set the edge sort of thing, and that's all. We're GONNA. Ask Him to do and as long as you can do that. The system will will fit him in and it will. He will be bigger than the SOLVIT. It's parts because he's doing only what we ask them as doing his job. Yeah exactly and the pages have gotten this. That part of it down to it feels like a science. that. I mean you look at drafting? You have no idea who they gonNA pick because. They don't seem to grade players the same way that other teams do. I think like the only real blindspot. It feels like the Patriots personnel has for some reason it just doesn't translate to them for whatever reason I'll Tom Brady's fault. You know now cam in here. It'll be no problem. Kill. Harry's the happiest Person Team Right now. I mean if you look at the receivers. He had when they went to the. Super Bowl. Laris Yeah. Well, I mean. I was hearing a lot of. Launches was probably their leading receiver. Yeah. We went through it when we talked to bobby last season. They were Ted game. philly grills leading receiver Yep Philly Brown, then a couple of guys that even. Even bobby hadn't heard of. Knock, Great But I was also. That's part of what I was kind of surprised to hear people. Being negative on this move because. They said that Cam Newton blast honey saw the field look like he had lost a step, but also. He had had a better surrounding cast than the Patriots because they had Christian McCaffrey and. A couple of wide receivers who I can't think of right now. Samuel, band, yes. Maryland that's. Exactly I like come on Jay more. Yeah, that's the one he's. Struggling with he was struggling with those guys. Is hurt though. Yeah that's what I think. But surprised at how much negativity there was around that from who? Where did you hear that? You pats fans, exactly people like you. Know See I judge the Patriots moves on what other fans are saying. You. Don't like it. You like it. Yeah, just sheep! Commit suicide over. It's a good signing. CHICAGO. 'cause you know that's a true side. We we all have our our fan base by Caesar and like I. We're no different. Here's Patriots. Fans were probably more drinking the cooler than anybody in proce, or if we're being honest and bill, we trust yeah, but it's hard to spin this one as a negative, because even if you say oh, he's not the quarterback wants what it doesn't matter. He's getting paid a million dollars. Right. There's no downside. Little risk the only thing I could. It blocking yeah. That or but it's a one years Dr, seuss. Because everybody thinks he's got a thin skin it'll be interesting to see how he handles the boss media. Right because I. think that's always A. Concern With anybody comes here regardless our. What? Baseball players that have come over to the red sox and struggled. Pablo Sandoval Right. says. Pablo Sandoval what? He blew out his belt suing in this. fucking all over. Just trade them that. Really show. It was so funny I'm interested what happens if? Still wins job out of camp. And struggles the first couple of weeks most wondering. Point. Because like is there to start or the opposite I mean even if. Yeah, we've never had to. Not since. Two Thousand and two games. That were just rewatching now. Well, you could say. This. This feels to me similar to. The twenty eighteen embrace was suspended the first four games and it was Jimmy Garoppolo first time to start. Then he got hurt, and then it was jacoby percent. It kind of has that fields me where because and I think we've. Talked about this here and there on this podcast already where? You got so used to Brady what he does. That You came into every game with an expectation of matter what the two teams are like no matter who's around Brady or who the opponent was. You is expected to do Brady things and figure out a way to pull it out in the end. But going into those first games of. That twenty eighteen season. I hope it's. Like going into the Games felt different because you didn't know what was going to happen. You had no expectations what the game was supposed to. Like how it was supposed to go. You know what I mean. And I feel like I haven't felt that. In twenty years. And now I'm having that feeling again where I'm kind of excited to watch these games because I. don't have an expectation of how they're supposed to go. Yeah. Absolutely have used the ground right when. The expectations are so high. It's like it's kind of this is going to come off like patriots fans just like babies, but kind of sanded. It comes out when you're always the favorite. Yeah, yeah, because you. You come into this game with anything less than perfection. Is like a negative result. Almost you know. Yeah, but has assigning signing not significantly elevated those expectations again now. We're all going back to super bowl because they. No know. These not for me because I still it so completely unknown still. Matter I have no idea. How does look I? Don't know if ken is back to his. Twenty fifteen, you know. Performing performing ability where for back to. Pull for minutes ability. Skill level of twenty is health kept. His adroitness sal out that. You. Can you spell it for me, so I can? Stat check this Greg. Jacket adroitness. This is not a word, well Adroit Lou, cleverness or skill. Yeah especially with the hands you. God Damn Right Bitch. Is Because I. Go on Reddit and common under that guy and be like. You know what to do with your hands, Mr. In my lexicon and his good right. Guys. You got to stop using such big words. You're going to alienate our audience. Yeah, we don't want to be Gauche I. Don't you? Talk about your mother like that CPR? podcast now, sorry, mom! And so, it just like back to what I was saying. It has a different feeling and I kind of. And again, I know this comes off sounding like a spoilt Patriots Fan, but it. It's kind of a refreshing way to go into a football game of not having that expectation of we're GONNA win this game and if we don't. I like it because the change of pace, but talk to me. Six weeks into the season when we're three and three. And there's a quarterback discussion and I'll probably gene. Yeah, talk to me when that Foam Mos on the ground and Cam Newton and looks at it, and his brain starts spinning. Nah. or even just went like. The you know there's some sort of gaffey makes the post game press conference like the? Yeah the UPS on the, window. Get back what the fuck is its own arm. New umbrella breaking news. Emergency podcast purchases new umbrella. That's right yeah? ME. Literally walked right past. The didn't see me once. Our old umbrella got eaten by mice. Those fuckers classic class umbrella with a hole in its useless. Useless You on the PODCAST, but whatever? Does uses a large vocabulary on this podcast about that I was gonNA say Brian Hoyer. To. Back to back to vocabulary. Word Masochist? Is inherently sexual, or is it just me like? You like pain. I thought it was yeah I think it's just you you enjoy having pain inflicted on you I. Don't think it's necessarily sexual. Where we go with this, Greg Well 'cause I. I sent it to someone at work, and they didn't know what it meant. And they just put it in Google and the first response is a person who derived sexual gratification from their own pain or mediation, and there were like. Why would you say that to me? Maybe I just thought I. Mean it says underneath in general use a person who enjoys an activity that appears to be paying flirt tedious. But the first hit being sexual gratification from your own paid. The husband co-authored is so, it started. The Fuck is you took? Right. Do Tedious work, painful or tedious. I'll just skip by that. One Granny and I'll leave that in the in the personal folder. spank Bank as they say the Masochist Spank Bank sure whatever whatever you decide Sundays at work. Okay, the SPANK. Bank inherently sexual. What did you? Add, snacking were sexual. Remember that. slipped. Shadow Week Fifteen, thousand and one. That's a joke for our. Our religious, you know listeners be short, pretty emergency podcast. Off. Know People. Listening religiously. Might not even be out. It's true. The problem with prerecording. You're breaking news since overcut your. Actual podcasts episodes coup. Mandera only get worse. Thank me prediction for how you see the Patriots. Doing this this I say they had. Shakes. Predation Steve Yeah. I predict that stood in winds job in camp, and holds it all year and came as a backup. What's their record? Make the playoffs card. That's a fireball take. Enough I think that was his take from before Cam Newton. Thing Liz eve. Share 'cause. My original take was patriots. Squeak into the playoffs hit like nine, seven, ten and six. What that seven spot now that there is a seven spot. Yeah, and then you have. benched bench tour, thing, yeah! Exactly. So, I think I'm going to update that slightly where? I think the quarterback play will be better. The Patriots will win. The East again. We'll make the plan. Same thing happens. And make the playoffs get to the Super Bowl. Tom Brady's there waiting for them. Bell Jack Put together yet another hall of fame, the defensive game plan to Stymie Radio who has set multiple offense of records. Is this season and go on to win their seven seven? To. which she got greg. Jarett. Jared Dot Com wins the job, but then problematic tweets from his past research training camp. He gets canceled. Cam Newton takes over the starting job at then. The season is canceled by Co bid, and the Patriots go zero and zero in the NFL falls apart and in. There's never another game ever played. How's that for a fuck? Up! Twenty twenty five right? Now. I think. Right. Cam New assuming there's a season. Cam Newton wins the job. They, start at six and six. They squeak in at ten six. They lose in the second round. And then the patch ship mile I. Don't know. Doesn't matter. the Texans. Steady state I should really. I think they'll struggle to the beginning parts of the season sitting. There is some legitimacy to like. This guy is to learn a whole new. Playbook and or they need to like change their system I. Don't think it's going to be like a command. Just blow the doors off. I didn't. Either way stuttered, or they're gonNA struggle early in the season. Right and I If, they get. To that last quarter this season and start putting it together, they could be trouble. Be Away Patriots did yet. How about this they go into? They go into buffalo and beat the bills in buffalo and the wild card. Possible, found. If, they back door and seven spot, and then beat the bills in buffalo in the playoffs with bill would have in this case won the AFC east for the first time. With like Cam Newton goes on I R and weeks at starbucks first game as a playoffs, it goes into Buffalo. Dougherty so perfect. All. Right I'll I'll add onto mine. Too Mirrored. The the the two thousand one season stayed wins the job. Or Neuro Cam Newton wins the job injured. Early in the season week, two or three right out for like they put them on I R, but needed to return. Niece, knee and then. Stem comes in does what he needs to do. Pages get through stood. Him gets hurt against the bills. and. You have your triumphant return of Cam Newton, who comes in and wins. The game instead continues like it's only hurt for. The game comes back into the. Right. To the rescue exactly. Yeah. I love his celebration still when that during the tennis got pissed. NABBING DABS his face. That's just legendary stuff. Pretty good. Okay. My final thoughts on this the bad state designed Jamal Adams. They need freedom, Jeff! He's ready to come in. Would you trade for him? Dude? He was. He was applauding bill ballot. Check online for this signing. For Trade Oh, yeah, he's got some googly eyes for all billy boy. So, what would you give up to get Jamal Adams here? Safety position no need for Jarrett Stidham! Again I'll tell you what I'll give you that doesn't actually. Patrick Chung expiring contract. I don't even know if expiring contracts or the NFL but. He doesn't even have one. We just resigned Chung. You can have it. I'll give you all the cocaine that Patrick Chung has in his Lake House. That will be sick. Tomorrow, He is, but he's the safety and how much impact the draft to do by. Ready linebacker Andy. No He's not he is. No He's dude. I read this i. read this fucking stat the other day. Of like the numbers differences when they have when they're lining up tomorrow Adams in the box as opposed at safety. And like. There's like a drastic difference in. Fifty percent of the players like went for. Or something crazy like that Lord. And that's the new thing, right? You have these. linebacker slash safety hybrids. DUDES that can run. I'm telling you because basically what? The patient is just spent an entire draft on right that. Either linebackers who are lighter and quicker, war safeties heftier. And can still run. Which I think is to is to. Combat the. This kind of run for rpo offenses that you're seeing the ravens and the chiefs and such I don't even want. The jets took him. Go get the groceries. All right. Guys. Actually by Bugah Wade Ao etta.

Should the Pats trade up to draft Tua? + WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston joins the show

"I as I is sponsored by Ram trucks built deserve. Good morning everyone. Welcome to first things first some general wolfe alongside nick. Right Kevin Wild and Eric men. Genie is joining us on a Friday morning. Coaches rate to have you back. We missed you. That a lot to get to today What's Your Tom? Brady and Derek. Jeter have a lot in common. Guess which warmer cowboy wants to be a current cowboy. We started this morning with the latest New England Patriots. Rumor and no surprise. It's about who could possibly replaced on Brady. The Boston Globe released column. That who stars seem to be aligning for New England to move off in a draft from where they are now at twenty three into the top five in order to get to Chung of Loa. Would it be hard? Yes but there is a path and so there is a possibility. Nick do you think this makes sense for the New England Patriots? Well this is a loaded question. It makes sense for twenty five teams in football to want to get to a tongue of Iowa. As if you don't have Patrick Mahomes to Shawn Watson. Lamar Jackson drew brees. Aaron Rodgers the best of the Best Russell Wilson. Then yeah I want to try to get to a tongue of I lo and right now. My quarterback depth chart red stood them Hoyer Kessler. Of course I want to get to a tongue by loa but is it plausible? I mean the Patriots are sitting at twenty three. They don't have a second round pick. They only have one pick in the top. Seventy Miami's got six. Picks in the top seventy if they wanted to move up wild. I know you're so excited. Just little contemporaneous history here. When philly wanted to move up from eight into the top three they had to trade the eighth pick two-thirds another first and a second when Chicago wanted to move from three to two just to move up one spot. They're doing glued the third pick obviously along with two thirds and fourth so the price it would cost New England to move into the top five would be absolutely enormous. But Yeah wilds. Of course they should want to a tongue loa. I believe he's a future superstar and if you can get him wild you go get it. I would be so happy if this happened. But I'd also be so happy for several quarterbacks. I'm I brought this prop from my garage carrot top phase of my career. Now so nick with is what we do this this summer and the fall we go into something called the snapper. Derby and what the snapper derby is yet to catch the the biggest snapper under a pound and they're snappers are like baby blue fish and they're small and they've got it there headed south and they are so small and vulnerable. They need to fatten up. And they'll bite at anything. You can put a little piece of squid on there. You can put this like a pauper on there or if nothing else works you can just throw the hook in there and they will bite it. That is me and I can't tell whether I'm biting real story or just an old hook. Because here's my dream patriots depth chart at this point and check in because it changes every twelve hours when I see a photo shop on twitter number five Jalen Hurts. I absolutely love him. Same connection perfect number four stem where I don't even know if they did one of those wrestling things where they just put the same Jersey in a different guy like the killer. Bees used to do. I don't know I don't think I'd be able to tell the difference number three. Tom Brady bills it pulls a Bill Bell Jack with the jets and comes back. It's happened before just saying Josh mcdaniels. A little bit with the colts never to tour. I'm happy to move into number one but right now I'm still. He's still my heart. Set on Cam mostly because the CAM photo shops are more advanced at this point than the two photo shops. If this afternoon the two of Photoshop move a movement to it a number one jenner. So I don't know what I'm doing I'm will bite any hook that someone throws out there in the media so maybe Jenner coach can calm me down or fire me up. I'm not even sure we're going for in the show. I don't know if either of those or even possible at this point but but coach let me just reset for a second two questions for you. One how hard is it for a team to move up like the Patriots are at twenty three into the top five in order to get a guy like to it and is to even a good fit for the New England patriots in that system? Can you tackle both questions for me? First of all I want to thank Kevin for his carrot top reference. You don't get a lot of goes be begging for that. That was good in terms of being a bit it could be. It could be a really good fit and the relationship with Nick. Sabin helps them get good information in terms of where he is physically what he is what he's like as a player and in this environment where you can't spend time with the players having found information. I'd invest batted. Is the most important thing you could. You could have the fact that he also played for Brian. Debacle at one point at Alabama helps to from a from a system bid for me From from an overall fit in in terms of culture as well now all that being said I find it very hard to believe that the Patriots would give up for Mendes draft value to go. Get this guy it's not. It's not what they do now. They haven't drafted or they hadn't drafted a wide receiver and twenty plus years. Bill hadn't and they changed that last year. So it's not impossible but it's not really what they do. They're in the business of trading back more than trading up and and you even see the players that they've gone and replace. Tom Brady with have been lower value. Guys I it's hard hard hard. I think that they would give up what they need to give up in order to to move up in and try to get through. So here's the coach is my favorite part of the Patriots quarterback palace intrigue. At this point. It is revealing that the most die-hard Patriots fans and a lot of people that attacked me all year long. Actually deep down in their heart of hearts agreed with me all along that the problem for the Patriots last year on offense was their quarterback. Because I don't know Kevin Wilde's if you've noticed this but of your starting eleven offense of players last year ten of them are the exact same right now heading in the next year. You're big off season free agent. Acquisitions are a fullback. I know that got coach super excited. He text me about it. Dan Batallio bringing the Badri. It's back to prominence. Someone named Demeer Bird and Brian. Hoyer offensive line all the same receipt starting receivers Harian Sununu the same. Those tight ends. Remember the tight ends. We're the problem that's why Brady wasn't any good all the same. But all of a sudden you plug in a real life quarterback Cam Newton who by the way you had above Tom. Brady in your dream or back depth chart you feel good you plug in a rookie quarterback coming up a broken hip. You feel awesome. Brady's already moved to third in your heart and third on your depth chart so I heard all year long. The problem was the weapons. The problem was the offensive line. The Patriots have addressed none of that and are now at least public or at least. It's being speculated. They might trade away ways to address some of those things in the draft to do what? Wilde's fixed the actual problem of last year. Which was quarterback play? So it's a long way to say. I'm glad you're finally agreeing with me. That last year Brady was the issue. Nobody's go coach. All right that would would. I say nobody's necessarily agreeing with you. Nicky it's more functional Patriots. Fans need to find some solace in the fact that they've lost Tom Brady so now there whether it's A rookie quarterback whether it's a free agent quarterback they WANNA try to fill the void that's been left by leaving and it wasn't just a function of the Patriots moving on it was a function of both sides moving on so we've as it's not them saying. Tom Was strictly the problem. I don't think that that's the case at all. And then this article is like a lot articles. There's going to be people throwing stuff out there. Wild scenario that that could potentially happen if all the stars align but the reality is that might even. It's not even close to being a reality. But while you're and maybe it's because you WanNa be on board with this. Jenna any port in the storm. I'm in a bad spot right now and I think I'm trying to get down to the root causes of it so I'm GonNa throw it back to coach because these are the kind of two philosophies that I can't figure out One football is a win now. League bell checks always focused right here. We're onto whatever our next week's opponent is and then this other big kind of thing over here is that we're GONNA have one hundred million dollars in cap space. We're looking towards the future so coach tell me what I should be believing. Are we actually competing for a super bowl next year or my like onto a watch which? I don't think we get a super bowl next year because then I start to get into like Trevor Lawrence. Watch them and then like that young. Peyton fate into nephew watch like I don't know where I am so just tell me where it should be as a patriots fan but look the great organizations do bull. They plan for the future and they try to win right now and that's what's Made New England a great organization. They've got knocking mortgage the future it to just win this season. But they're gonNA do everything they can year in near year out to be competitive and it's worked so I you can't see the two is being mutually exclusive. You gotta look at it as being a huge benefit. That bill has the ability to navigate through through each of those scenarios it. Can I say something about this? Jenna what let me just. What's the other element to this story? Why are people discussing the Patriots even being able to move into the top five? What's what's the team. That's being speculated. They could work with your general so I'm glad you asked. And the reason is there's a lot of front office folk were tied to New England. Bob Quinn their general manager. Obviously Matt Patricia Their head coach. I Know Patricia. And and Bill belichick rumored to still vacation together. There's this crazy rumor out there that if things don't work out for them that this is a must win year or season for those guys for Quinton Patricia that they could eventually rejoin Bella. Check on his staff and then obviously you have the connection between Sabin and it seems like it's more than just do they have the capital to move up to number five. There are a lot of other issues in place. Nick right well exactly to move up into the top five ahead of Miami trade with Troy. That's the team. You're talking about a team since Bob Win. Fifteen years in New England. He's made seven trades with the Patriots. Matt Patricia. You mentioned it. They supposedly Ham Belgium's still vacation together and I think folks see that they say will of course that's ridiculous. No team is going to cut their former employer or where they have some loyalties of break in a trade. The only way New England could actually move it into number. Three is if that is exactly what happened and while I know folks are quick to Poo Poo and Oh quick to say that would never happen in pro sports. I'd only I don't need to go very far back in history and I don't need to go anywhere else. Geographically to a different team in Boston the Celtics who won their only title in the last thirty years how because former Celtic Kevin McHale said. Hey I don't know what to do with this. Kevin Garnett fell. I mean he's one of the twenty four greatest players of all time and he's a former league can be beasley best player in our history. Where a franchise you want him for? Big Al Jefferson Danny Ainge. Locker Room Buddy. So I've seen that happen. And I say that to say this if Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia Gift to hunger by Loa to the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick for wrote the twenty third pick a third round pick and Julian bleeping Eshelman. I'm out I'm out. They'll be able to afford because I can't deal with the idea out on everything if they end up being gifted not look like well probably getting fired here anyway. This'll be one hell of a cover letter for my resume. I gave you to change. I don't even WanNa conceptualize let you know now next. What are you GonNa do nick next hour? I don't know Man Nick. Go live in a way out to leave it there and take a break here. First things first lose joining US Super Bowl. Chance Brisk Candy Chris. Thanks so much for V near hope you and your family are well and we appreciate your pleasant face this morning. Let's get right into it. We're GONNA play a little drawing a blank right now. Dez Bryant the latest athlete to make a bid for a job in the NFL. Next season. Tweeting this out yesterday. Daqing Myself just finished. A great workout session picked up where we left off. Well that had US thinking nick desk cowboys reunion would be blank and I know that sounds harsh today Bryant but at this point especially with the Dallas cowboys. When you've got gallop on the outside and ascending flare Cooper on the other side on the outside a guy you just gave one hundred million dollars to the only spot at the receiving Gore. They've real questions about is the slot receiver with Randall. Cobb going to the Texans. Does Brian playing the slot. I Dunno does brides plan the X. Or The Y. But they don't have availability there. He's certainly not playing the slot. He's been out of the League for a few years now so sorry Dez but anti I say a dozen Dacca reunion would be pointless as much as I hate to agree with Nick. Right. I have to follow his lead on this one. Although I use a different word I'm GonNa go with charity. I know the Jones family does a lot of charity where salvage area teams though that the front. But I don't think Jerry has this kind of charity in mind when he's looking at the twenty twenty football season Dez Bryant can't help the football team and NFL teams on in the business and over office. But the guy that can help the team but especially guys that are two years removed for football coming off a major injury at a position that requires some explosive there so I just don't think it with the Dallas cowboys. I'm sure he's pushing for but I jen. I'm going to go with crabtree. Ask like maybe it doesn't work in Dallas just like it didn't work in San Francisco for Michael Crabtree. The Achilles is bad but give it some time. Give it some time. Give it some time. Crabtree still came back with the raiders at nine hundred ninety s nine hundred yard so. I'm not giving up hope that we can see back on an NFL field at some point. This has to get back to just working out with every single quarterback in the League. Land somewhere onto the browns. Now new head coach Kevin Stefanski came out and said he believes in Baker Mayfield and while that may be true he also knows Baker. Finish the season last year with twenty one interceptions and forty six. So Nick Stansky saying he believes in Baker is blank reassuring it's reassuring for me it's reassuring for Baker. It's reassuring for fans of Cleveland and maybe most importantly reassuring for fans of this show. Because I know Jenna Wolfe and now I also know. Kevin Wilder just dying for gasoline to be escorted on the embers that is case keenum's NFL career and hearing Stefanski wrap his arms around Baker is absolutely reassuring to me and Frisk canty. I believe this year we are going to get a sixteen game and maybe more if they make the playoffs full sample of how bad of an NFL head coach. Freddie Kitchens was by the way I think he's now on your New York giant staff. But I might be wrong about that. I I think everything that was wrong with. The browns is going to be laid at the feet of Freddie Kitchens Bakers GonNa Bounce backs defense is going to show why he was once thought of as one of the offense minds in the League so candy for me this is all reassuring requisite when you start talking about the fancy to belief in Baker Mayfield. Wouldn't have got the job if you didn't think you could get the best. Outta quarterback if he didn't think there was some good raw materials to work with. I Know Freddy Kitchen is with the New York giants head coach. The offense coordinator. I'm cool with that. And that's something. That's the situation for Daniel Jones but in looking at Baker. Mayfield this whole off. Season with about being able to support the quarterback. He's already on his third coaching as many seasons than the NFL. They've gotta get career on track. We've got to have some consisting consult. I like the fact that the verbalizing his belief in the player Yeah Jenna. I'm going with two words. Flammable inflammable. They they sound like the opposite but they actually mean the exact same thing so if you say I believe in Baker and I don't believe in Baker they both mean that you don't believe in Baker Bill Bell. Jack was never like I believe in Tom. Brady you don't have to say that in a friendly reminder everybody's on case Keenum Watches Right now the bandwagon just me Jenna and unfortunately stansky eleven three in Minnesota. When fancy was a quarterbacks coach so watch out gone that get that case Keenum Bandwagon. Plenty Room but hurry up though because that room is going to run out real fast Moving on to on a twenty six year old road in fire. It'll run out of room. Sorry going hey. When was the last time a bandwagon did that? The Twenty Six year-old Jameis Winston region quarterback still looking for a place to call US football home. Get this one. Nfl Executive thinks he'd be a perfect fit in Pittsburgh. So Nick James to the steelers would be blank very intriguing. We've talked about this last week. I love to spots for James One Dallas as a chess move in the negotiations with that Prescott. Like oh go ahead. Don't sign our hundred million dollar offer. We've got former number one overall. Pick but they don't do that. This steelers make any mince amount of sense. First of all Jamieson game and body has always somewhat mirrored Big Ben. Big Ben just done at a much higher level. Also the list of quarterbacks to successfully come off Tommy John Surgery. I think it's Jake degrom and that's it and even dome results were mixed. We don't know how big Ben is. We do know how old Big Ben is. And we don't know what Big Ben Waste. So if there's any place that might need a backup quarterback that might actually need to start some games. I think it stamp I ling. It's a great place for James to try to rebuild his value. They don't need panty. Great quarterback play in Pittsburgh. I said Tampa. Pardon me in Pittsburgh just need someone steady. I don't know if James is that right now but he's better than doc he's better than makes. Rudolph so to me. This would be very intriguing dance. Been on that train for some time now ever since it was obvious that the Tampa Bay. What's GonNa Resign Jameis Winston? I felt like the ideal fit. And that's where I'm going to. Ideal was James Winston. Go to Pittsburgh backup Ben Rothlisberger for a couple of years. He's got less up there in Pittsburgh. But most importantly gets to go to an organization that has some stability. The Pittsburgh steelers three had coached in the last fifty years so the organization and model for stability feels like their general manager. Kevin Colbert in their head. Coach Mike Tomlin stocked up. And that's exactly what James Winston needs right. Now keep in mind Ben. Rothlisberger had some issue earlier on in his career and they still found a way to get into work past it and to have success with him to talent with James is undeniable. Just gotTA clean up his face on and off the field. I feel I could forget the right place to do that. John I'm GONNA go with Interception Bonanza from two thousand fifteen to two thousand eighteen jamison the second most interceptions in the league the first Big Ben. It's great what I'm together. It'll be. Interception Bonanza there. It would be just wonderful for the opponent so I end up all the DVD's who can have some souvenirs. Once they had to Pittsburgh. Nick I agree with you. It's rare for quarterbacks. Tommy John Surgery. Let's see what role does actually slide into their if he does go to. Pittsburgh right moving onto the NFC east now. Tom Brady might be gone. Afc's rather but bills GM brandon. Bean has not stopped fearing Brady's former team saying quote the team to be in the. Afc East is the Patriots. Don't forget new. England has won the last eleven division titles so neck the bills. Gm saying the PATS are the team to beat in the East is playing? It's obvious now they have won the last eleven division titles but it's been more than twenty years since they won a division title without Tom. Brady so I understand why somebody would say. Maybe we have a chance. But I don't think you really do have a chance. The bills you know what Brandon beane knows deep down in his heart of hearts. His quarterback is still Josh Allen. So you can't be the favourite in any division. Even though Josh Allen played better the end of last year with Josh Challenger quarterback Sam darnold still seeing ghosts. And we don't know what Miami's doing the Patriots won twelve games and the division last year with a low league average quarterback play. Why can't they do something similar? I think it only takes ten wins to win the division. That Defense Candy can win. Ten Games by itself by. I don't know buffalo was going to take the next step that they would need to take overtake New England so I say it's obvious stance my word expected. Even though it's similar to work doors is I'm GONNA take a different plan on. I think that this with the bills Jim has to do in order to get his young upstart football team to focus on a goal. Lots that buffalo bills are trying to try to get to that position. When they're consistently competing for the postseason they're trying to emulate what they seem for the New England patriots. The passing decades and SEAN MCDERMOTT AND BRANDON. Beane both know that in program building. It's important to make sure that you set a standard that you establish clear goal and I think by him coming out and saying this this gives a little bit of motivation to his guys in off season of uncertainty. In an off season. Where you're not gonNA have. Ota's Medicare off season conditioning program. I think this is a little bit of a motivational tool by the general manager for his club. Jenner I'm going with. This is a soothing balm for me. I've got a lot of wounds from Tom Brady exit. But it's a soothing balm the world is going back to how it used to be. We're fine and we actually looked up with a researcher. The last our new quarterback was only ten years old the last time they he didn't see the Patriots Win The AFC east. So I think he's GonNa Look Yup. We'll keep winning. He doesn't really have a memory of us not winning. So welcome to the team tour. We're happy to have you You know keep the tradition going to hear. I'll does an artist who let us finish up Tom Brady? He is officially moving into his new thirty Thousand Square Foot Waterfront Tampa home valued at fourteen million dollars. A local real estate expert says the rent would be at seventy five thousand dollars a month and the landlord. Derek jeter the. That's Eric Jeeter Nick. Braving moving into jeeter's Tampa mansion is blank. Well for this. Tom Brady two point. Oh it's very on brand very on brand for the guy who hijacked the Super Bowl News cycle to promote some Do some commercial dave the Friday before the Super Bowl and for a guy who now currently tweets in the third person about warm weather. Tom Letting loose on the Howard Stern show. It's very on brand to go to a city. And say what is the single most opulent thing I can purchase? I've got all this extra money. Because I just jacked Chris Godwin burs number instead of giving him money so he goes like this for at least a month. So let's let's spend it on. It's it's very on brand for Tom. Brady two point. Oh I'm excited to see what's next. Maybe HE'LL DELCO. Hook them up with one of those launches award during the game that I assume is the next thing here but yet candy. I think this is on brand. It's perfect for the new and improved. Tom Brady do. We actually know whether or not Tom Brady is paying rent or is there. You know because because the new and improved Tom Brady. We now know what the Godwin likes to take things of immense value in pay. Nothing bore them. So maybe you know what it's a great question clinic candy maybe squatting. I'm not certain go ahead. Use The word St Louis. Palatial registered only word. Go with the cream that has attacked value of over two hundred thousand dollars a year. What are your bill for? Two hundred thousand dollars a year gesture taxes. That is unbelievable. I guess what Tom Brady Roll. It makes all the world all right you ready for this. This is a real psychosis about to unveil. I think Tom Brady's GONNA walk around that House. And see all the Yankee stuff he's not going to see any like Colorado Rockies jeeter jerseys he's GonNa see the one modern at Lee who has stayed with his team from minor leagues all the way till now and I think it'd be like wow maybe I should go back to the Patriots that's the real psychos your word. That's true role model where it is a role model for Brady. It's good it's good role models role model to go down and live in a place where with winning walls and winning foundation and he found jeeter's James Howson he's setting that's where he's GonNa be gotta take a break coming up. Wwe superstar Kofi Kingston joins us to discuss this weekend's wrestlemainia action. That is next. I'm I I. Wwe superstar Kofi things in joining us this morning. Kofi Good Morning. Thank you for being with us. I want to jump right Aulia. Yeah yes yes off a raise it speaking of that. I raise it all the way up. Kofi which you won't be doing at the event tell me about the opportunity to be able to entertain people during these difficult times clearly. Europe personalities ready just SORTA jump out there. Yeah for sure. This is something that we take a lot of pride in being able to entertain people throughout any kind of tough times that they might be having a wwe pretty much one. Oh one for you know however long. Yeah we it's just important to be able to provide a sense of levity and to be a person that is on this wrestlemainia. It's probably like one of if not the most unique wrestlemanias in the history of wrestlemanias but at the same time you know crowd many or whatever but at the same time it's something that like we are is just so you need to be on that card is it's going to be and you know we take a lot of pride and just bringing that energy and still wrestlemainia for us so. I think this is going to be great. It's going to be two days which has never happened before either. Gronk as the host. You know me being a patriots fan and as a matter of fact so I just want you guys at segment just before and like when I was thinking about the questions that you guys might ask me for this interview I was like all mandated probably might ask me about Brady. That might ask me about the Patriots. I'm like man what if we got to? I got hand the Gut you know and then I wake up. Send the Boston Globe. Has This article about this possibility. So this is why you like you put these things out into the universe you know you affirm my mom always says affirmation is key and now here we are you know. I don't want to get my hopes up but man come on man come on. Let's go well. I know we're going to get into GRONK and the Tom Brady or to a later in our discussion. But I want to ask you about this week. And in this regard huge part of your story has been the embrace of the fans the fans have embraced. You not only from their couches but in the arena. The pop you get in. The crowd is one of the things that really skyrocketed you to real superstardom Wrestlemainia. This year is in a very unique place. As we all ours were dealing with this pandemic. How much more incumbent is it going to be on the superstars to bring even extra energy? Because there's no crowd. And how much tougher is that as a superstar when you don't hear the crowd chanting or booming but you've got to deliver it because people are doing that on their couches. You just can't see him in hero. It's definitely different. I'M NOT GONNA lie. We were out there. You know it's different like you said. We thrive off the crowd. It's such a huge part. Probably the biggest part of what we do but at the same time like his performance we have this internal sense of I. Guess where the crowds should be and for myself like I told you when I was on the so like a while ago. This is all I've ever wanted to do. So anytime I get into a ring and I start getting in there again with guys like the use os or guys like Ms Morrison. Who are so good what they do. You can't help but feel energized and that energy just carries out throughout the arena regardless we always say like we put on the best so if you have one person in the crowd or you have a million people in the crowd. The energy from us is always the same. You always want to go all out. Obviously the crowd helps that but our energy doesn't doesn't really change you know so and then at the back of our minds. We know that we are providing that sense of relief for people a distraction you know in a sense of entertainment that the wwe always brings so you you feed off of that you know and I think that people are going to be pleasantly surprised with the way that Wrestlemainia is this year even though it is if Kofi talked about the historical importance of Wrestlemainia you of course one your belt last year at Wrestlemainia. How important was it for you to win at Wrestlemainia? You could have one in a lot of ways but you want to at Wrestlemainia heroes that you saw growing up. Yeah for me. It was a stereotypically childhood dream that came through. You couldn't have written a better story the way that it happened. It was just so organic. It wasn't supposed to happen and it was the crowd that gave the fuel and energy for it to to progress week after week. Koffi mania is what a lot of people referred to last year's Wrestlemainia as and as a performer. That's what you strive for. You want to have a moment that reaches so many people that affect so many people in so many different ways so for me. That's that's what that was like. I'M GETTING GOOSEBUMPS HERE. Like talking about it in my house with nobody in the room. My kids my walk in at any given moment by the way they'll probably about wake up pretty soon but it's still blows my mind that even a year thinking about the effect that that match and my victory winning the wwe championship had on so many different people. I get messages on twitter all the time. It's hard to believe that it was a year ago because it really does feel like yesterday when I was in there with woods and e and eighty five thousand people in my family in the crowd and my my my kids getting in the ring with me and my oldest son throwing out a t shirt. You know to everybody. It's just it's it's incredible. It is truly incredible and even like I said a year a whole year later. Here we are and it still feels as amazing as it did the night that I want coffee. This is really cool on top of everything else. You're doing your now starring in a Netflix Film. Called the main event about an eleven year old boy who discovers a mask and goes on to become a wwe superstar. Tell us about the experience. What was the whole thing like? What was it like filming this? It was awesome. I think a lot of people the natural transition like from being a wwe superstar post WWe. Everyone always talks about. Oh what are you going to go into acting right? You're going to go into Hollywood and to me. They're very different things. They're very different entities. In the way that you approach it and I wasn't sure if I wanted to go that route but I think that this is the perfect way to kind of get my feet wet. I'm playing myself in the movie. I had an amazing. There's an amazing cast their You know it was. It was crazy it was awesome. And you know myself. I'm in it same as a story about a boy who finds a magical Lucia mask and he gets all these wrestling powers. You know what I mean. And he's able to go out and like live out his dream and I just happened to me the catch that he looks up to the movie. So He's wearing my shirt is his grandmother is in love with me knows. It's an awesome like just a fun story. That comes out on Netflix. And the timing couldn't be any better because with everybody being indoors. A lot of people are watching Netflix. You know so. I think this this story is going to be able to bring people a lot of just a lot of you know just a lot of joy. It's good like if you're a kid who wants to be a wrestler. This is kind of a story you want to be involved with. So I'm looking forward to it. I think it was. I think it was Kofi our colleague at Fox Sports Future. Nfl Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski. You mentioned him earlier. He obviously has a huge part with wrestlemainia. I am curious if he decided to go. Full Bore Oh look at. That guy didn't even see him there. What's up man full-bore? Yeah absolutely we were too loud. Wwe superstar you. Gronk has it in if he wanted to drop the MIC. And try to get in the ring with you guys all. Yeah one hundred percent. I had the opportunity to cross paths with them as all the things were going on and definitely has personality is such that you know when he got in the ring a few years ago and Andrei Memorial battle royal like. He just looked like he belonged. You know what I mean. So Yeah Yeah. He's got it on the Mike. He's got the charisma he's got the size. He's got the energy and I think he's been wanting to do this for a long time. So we'll see what happens after he hosts but I wouldn't be surprised if he if he ended up in the ring at some point soon. Kofi bill check is a champion your champion as as champion to champion. If you call Bell Jack. What do you want to do a quarterback? Now who how can I tell bill ballot set what to do? I'm the guy who was like I. I've been so blessed as from my childhood all the way up until now to have experienced like such a winning tradition and I'm so spoiled I've been to nine super bowls. You know what I'm saying. I say that because I feel like I was on the field with my boys. You know what I'm saying. What six of them. There are so many of my friends web and even sniff the Super Bowl sniff the playoff. I mean Kansas City hat and won the superbowl and fifty years. I don't know what that feels like. And that's all because Bill Bella check in his plan and the system so so so I can't I don't know man i. I'm always wanted to stress in the system and I think that Bella diagnose what he's doing and sad as it was to see. Tom Brady go. I feel like he's given me so much as a fan of the Patriots that if he wants to go off and prove himself somewhere else and he wants to do other things I feel like he's earned that right so so we'll see man. It's it's a very long winded answer to say that it's a beat around the Bush here and not give I give you a non answer. I'm not going to bury cited. I'm super excited for the door. A little boy on your lap just like you got to uninterrupted decades of success in super bowls with brave. He's going to grow up in the Jarret Stidham era and I'm sure it will be just the same guys. Y'All be J. M. we'll be able to compare memories of the Brady or a little about age into the. Hey look this is my son and he might be getting into the jared era but I think a lot of people might have said the same thing about Brady. Bledsoe went out. Oh so long ago and I'm not saying Brady by any means but let's give them a chance before everybody starts make thrown all these tax cuts and making these jokes to me. We'll see man. I like. I said to the Patriots. I just have faith. I have faith you know. Our defense is still tight so hopefully steadham can grow and become Tom Brady esque. And maybe he'll come on the so and make you eat those words new. You know baking. What did we love that a kite? Spray to meet you. We love seeing you. We love the work. Your Dad does Kofi. Thank you so much such a great personality so much to contribute. We really appreciate speaking to you this morning. Good loss on this weekend and Wrestlemainia. We'll be watching. Thank you so much I appreciate it. He got back here coachman. Genie time for stories to start your morning so the chiefs have reached a deal with wide receiver. Sammy Watkins one year. Deal nine million dollars in base pay with incentives that could be sixteen million. The move does create five million in space for Casey Nick. Good movie brought the chiefs. Oh all my for in general Wolf Kevin Wild coachman genie that sound. You just heard was thirty. One other teams waking up this morning cursing stopping their feet and saying well. We don't do now. Everybody's back Chris. Jones thought we might lose him franchise. Sagging Sammy Watkins. I was sure we were GONNA lose them. Let's restructure the deal. Bring him back playoff elite performer. Sammy Watkins by the way. Five playoff games of chiefs nearly five hundred yards the touchdown that sealed the AFC championship game and Burning Richard Sherman on the deep route. That set up the game winning touchdown in the Super Bowl Wild you remember after the warriors got durant there was talk around the NBA will teams just punt on the next couple of years and look to the following seasons. Because they know they can't win. I feel like we might be entering that here in the NFL. Our team's going to say well. We know what's happening in twenty twenty. They did it to US last year. There do it again. They brought everyone back. So that's how happy I am and how sad you Kevin Wild as a Patriot Fan. Is this morning in general? I feel like we're in a tough spot because if neck is wrong. I don't think the show works. But also when he's right it's puts us in a bad spot because we have nowhere to go so it's sort of like in this quagmire. I unfortunately picnic one hundred percent right as soon as I was like well. They're not going to have Sammy Watkins. Because Nick told me they weren't gonNA get AIMEE Watkins but once they start. Restructuring deals like the Patriots. Were so great at the whole league is in trouble and I think personally Jenner. You and I are in trouble if this is what we've got for the next year. That's why we brought coachman genie out here. Go coach set assault straight. Well the good thing Kevin is. The show does work when NICK IS WRONG. Because make wrong all the time with with this situation right here on the air with this situation. They need to restructure his contract. He he had yet. Ninety targets with tech percentage was down fifty seven percent down significantly from the year before so he wasn't very productive and he's a good part of the offense but nick is under this illusion that they can just play the way they played last year and win the Super Bowl again. And that's what happened in people think that you just do what you did last year and it good enough. You don't get to start a super bowl champion. Will you have to do all the things that you did last year? Better because everybody now is studying you but look they'll make the same mistake that eight million other super bowl champions of made except for New England. Who's been able to do it back to back and bill. Bill have this air of superiority and at the end of the day when they get knocked out of the play offs or end up wherever they end up. We're outta bed happen sorry Onto free agent Chaveas Winston now in. Nfl exact said he thinks Winston would be a perfect fit. In Pittsburgh's offense Nike Buying James to the steelers. All the very quick here. Because I want to make sure we have time for our last question. I'm buying it. I think it's a perfect fit because he doesn't deserve right now to be a starting quarterback but Ben Rothlisberger thirty eight coming off. Tommy John and so I think it makes a lot of sense I go there. Maybe try to rebuild some value and he might have to play some games because even healthy big ben usually misses a game or two because he gets thing up so wild. I think it's a perfect fit. Yeah I think it's a perfect fit for weird reasons. Just because Big Ben throws a lot of interceptions and James certainly does solar writing at home their coach what he thing. I think I think he's a good bit. He's gotta go wherever he's got a chance of actually get some playing time and potentially revives is career. Maybe maybe it's you know the ram maybe it's the coal. I think that all three of those situations could be fed for for him. Attend with Tom. Brady this morning. Tb twelve took to twitter to announce he will be on the Howard. Stern show Wednesday saying quote. Warm weather. Tom Lets loose. Nick warm weather. Tom Is this must-listen radio here. We go. Why do we have the operation I want? I want to go first. Let's go coach. Kevin me because I I'm just letting you know right now. I WanNa have the last word on this so coach you go first your thoughts on on the Howard Stern show. I remember Tom Brady. And the Howard Stern show I think Howard Stern's one of the best interviewers going? I think he'll get a lot of really good story than information at a time. And I like the fact that I'm go on and talk about his story and the decisions that he's made and he look. I know your goal is to Bash Brady for for the things that he does but you have so little room to work. You can try to find some angle that attack. I think it's going to be a fascinating interview. I can't wait for it but go ahead. I also can't wait for what you're going to say here. So let's hear it listen. Quarantine Nick is excited to hear about warm weather Tom. Champion Nick side is here. My warm weather in Tampa. Tom and I mean listen. I'm just telling you right now. First things first does nick. Right is excited to see warm weather. Tom Brady to point out the Tom Brady. That says wins the right time to release a commercial pimping a new product. Oh Hell about seventy two hours before the Super Bowl. That's supposed to be about my former backup guy who's going to replace me as the greatest quarterback of all time. What's a good gift to give Chris Godwin for the only Jersey numbers ever worn? How about nothing at all? And what's a good time to spill all the secrets about in third person from Derrick? Jeeter Zeman said on Howard Stern show. I'm excited for General Wolfe. Have a great weekend. Everyone stay safe and say Monday.

3 and Out - NFL Coaching Matters More; Full Week 13 Preview; Mailbag

"Hey this just in. It's officially fall. Means a lot of things to a lot of different people changing colors time to break out the pumpkins break out the football most most importantly break out my friends at truly hard seltzer truly has only one hundred calories but as five percent. AB In only one gram of sugar. Sugar per container. Can't miss drink of the seasons of pickup and try truly heart Seltzer today through drink. What you truly want and what's going on? Everybody happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully you had a good day. I may or may not be recording this day before thanksgiving. I'm in beautiful place. They like to call Maui. I can see the water. Actually Kinda gotta go outside and stand on furniture. But I'm not. I'm about five minutes away from the water. So this podcast will not include the Thursdays Games. Not a great slate but anytime the cowboys play big deal but you know it's Turkey Day and I was going to be busy in probably a little intoxicated. So there's just. There's no way I could do it so I wanted to bang this out before I get a little golf in at a nice little place called yla vacation slash work but I had to do the podcast. And there's some things I wanNA talk about all dive into off the top. Just I was thinking about this morning. What the what this season in the NFL is kind of encapsulated? It's the ultimate marriage of players and coaches and it's what makes football so great unlike like baseball which is now run by general managers. Unlike basketball. That is run by players. Football is really a coaching league. Now obviously good players play a huge huge role but it's really the combination of the two and the other two sports is just don't have it and then I'll go through all the games and I'll answer a couple of guys. Middlekauff mailbag questions nations at John Middlekauff on my instagram you slide right into those. DM's wide open for you guys to come and Holler at me. Ask questions same as my twitter. Handle it just my name at John Middlekauff but I wanNA start with this and in every business there are certain things that are very important to make a successful right. I'm sitting in this condo. Although they're charging us a boatload and if you go down about I don't know two football fields to where the water is the price point of where I'm sitting the price point of that Condo even though it's in the same complex goes up about four X. because what are they always tell you in real estate location location location. I mean I. I had to the CONDO that I bought in the bay area. I paid fifty thousand dollars over asking price and that was just to get in the final four to buy it now Matt Condo in three years. It hasn't gone up at the same rate that it was going when I bought it. But you're not made six figures in a short period of time. No real estate maven but locations. Kate right and I would imagine a lot of people that listen to this. You know. We're in sales now. You can re different things and you guys know you could argue. Is it more important to have a great salesperson. Is it more important to have a great product. I think it's probably a combination of the both right. The better the product is the easier sell. It's probably ease. He's Roussell a Nike shoe than it is some random shoe now in my business like I talk for a living. Is it more important to be good right to have like interesting. Takes like what separated Colin over the last fifteen years for me it was. He was by far the most intelligent guy on the radio. It's why everywhere I go. No I'm meet people that are young. That are twenty years old. I was at a wedding and met this. Do It was like twenty years old at USC Guy Love Coward. And you'll meet a guy sixty I I love coward. You know what they all tend to have in common tend to be pretty smart people by calling resonates with intelligent successful people and that's what separated him now. Obviously he knows sports and these well-spoken he's a great broadcaster but he's unique and I I think in this business it's harder and harder to find unique people it's why collins kind of ran circles around everyone the last ten fifteen years in this business because like God the same regurgitate it takes like spare me. I can't take it but when it comes to football and I talked about in baseball. Listen I I live in an area where billy bean. The Front Office runs a team and they do a great the job. They make the playoffs every year with the payroll. That's low and then I got the giants who forever were a coaching. Driven thing with Bruce Bochy in now with four haunt. Who's from the dodgers from the as the general manager is going to run the show saw the warriors? I Love Steve. Kerr Super Smart Guy Great Basketball Life. They won big because they had elite player bottom line period point blank end of story. I mean they had better players than everybody now when he first got here he implemented a system and it helped get them over the top. He didn't have zero zero role but they won because Curry Klay Draymond in the attic. Kevin Durant we're in football. I think a lot of times. There's a reason it's called the Lombardi he trophy. We talk about Bella Check and parcels and Walsh in the same reverence and on the same level in which we do Lawrence Taylor Joe the Montana. You can't say Joe Montana without saying Bill Walsh. You can't say Lawrence Taylor without saying bill parcells like you can't say Tom Brady without saying ballot. Check it's what makes football so great. Coaching is really important. As white coaches in football ultimately is a big television show. It's one a huge reality show and the players are a huge part of it. The coaches coaches play a massive role. They are really famous. Someone someone that talks about football for a living. It's not just like I don't only have the players talked about. I can just do topics on coaches and people will care. People have opinions. I'm talking the good coaches or the bad coaches that they are very very polarizing figures. Unless you're just elite at your job like Bella check everyone else. We Nitpick by Tomlin's never had a losing season. We crush them John Harbaugh loss for a couple years lost his touch. And I think just thinking about this season. It's the it's kind of the indictment of why coaches are important. It's why relative to the business. Some of these franchises now are three four billion dollars. You're paying a head coach. which is the most important employees? You have now the owner's not an employee. But he's obviously. He's the most important in person because he can metal he can tell you know he can hire and fire but the second most important person probably even above the quarterback is the head coach and you you know relative to other industries probably be making twenty five thirty million dollars a year. They shouldn't be making as the good ones. Bella checks for fifty million dollars a year. Easy easy what he's made the crash. We're getting home playoff game for twenty years easy and maybe does I mean no one really knows how much Jack Makes I guess. Like fifteen million dollars. That's still underpaid. What Andy Reed's candy chiefs? They were a joke in the late. Two thousands now the playoffs every year wind divisions host Playoff Games in the AFC championship last year. For the first time in what forever in twenty five years the ravens but just this year has been a muscle flex for. Let's look at the saints. Drew brees hurts his finger this year. It's like the first thing I thought was like you know you see Teddy. Come into that game against the rams you like they're screwed. You know what it turns out. They weren't screwed. They didn't lose a game under Teddy Bridgewater win win. Win Win Win Win. Sean Payton worth his weight and gold the forty niners. It's like they fire everyone. The training staff the doctors the wait staff we gotta get over these injuries but what happened this year. Same Old injuries reese and what happened Kyle. Shanahan tired of making excuses left tackle out right. Tackle out full backout tight. End Out corner out middle linebacker out. Pass pressure out no big deal. We'll just we'll scheme we'll figure it out. Everyone's calling me the best young coach in the show everybody Seattle I take time about the seahawks and I have beside the Patriots. There's probably not an operation. I respect more than what p Carroll John Schneider have done and when you look could this team this year. Where's the talent I mean? They got four or five good players but their roster is nowhere near what it was in the two thousand twelve twelve years. Thirteen two thousand fourteen. And what are they gonNA do when twelve thirteen games. No big deal be Carol Culture just coach them up philosophy. Something the analytic guys. Hey stop running the ball pete throw the bowl peace Bro. Nine into shut up sit down. Stop Yelling at me Baltimore I yeah I can't. I'm still kind of shocked. How good Lamar Jackson is? I never in a million years thought this now. Maybe the game change. Maybe I need to reevaluate the way I look at things but what John Harbaugh do he said well. My brother also had a unique quarterback when Alex Smith went down and implemented them and they revolutionized the the way that they ran an offense. Why don't we do the same thing? Why don't we hire the same guy? So what does he do goes and hires groman. And what have they done. Taking the League by storm turns out John. Harbaugh knows what he's doing and the Patriots this year. Any wide receivers. They're running backs Kinda suck. GRONK retires bell checks like no big deal. We'll we'll just have the best secondary in the league. Me and my son will call the defense. Okay Florez Patricia. You guys are gonNA leave. We'll be better without you. Special teams will step it up. A Notch will block punts. We'll take you do. We'll do things that Jason Kerr. It's like what is going on right here. Jason We. I just don't have a punt returner we're going to block your punt. You know what's coming. I know it's coming and we're still going to block this bad boy so get ready beaten us here in Foxborough. I promise you that this year has been the ultimate just muscle flex for coaching all the top teams the best coaches in the league You know you just. It's been fun to watch because sometimes in obviously the players are really important. Lamar Jackson special player. But they got studs on that. Mark Ingram Stud Belgium Stefan Gilmore. Gilmore is one of the highest payed corners in the league. It's not like you need good players. But it's like if I had Kevin Durant Steph curry and Klay Thompson and I had my mom coaching the warriors i. They'd still be hard pressed not make the finals. As long as she had a decent assistant staff they would win. That's not the case in football if you put Jason Garrett on the Patriots. I don't care if they Tom Brady. They're not winning thirteen games now. Maybe they still win ten because their division sucks but no way you put Jason the bills. How are the bills doing this? You know why because Sean McDermott is an elite defensive coach. They'RE GONNA win ten eleven games that are often to suck put an average Pat Shurmur on the bills. You think. They're making the playoffs. If I gave Mike Tomlin how have the steelers won. Games would duck hodges in Mason Rudolph thrown pick after pick after pick losing rothlisberger the first game of the season with a two Tommy John Surgery and when the dust settles worst case scenario you know what the steelers going to be. Probably Eight worst-case I bet they're still nine and seven. Coaching never mattered more in the NFL. Despite the rules being and weird you're not allowed to hit anybody like the good coaches. The cream is rising in this league unlike ever before because there are probably the depth of coaching. It has probably never been better. Like think about. Just the top ten coaches in this league right now. Obviously the greatest coach ever. But then you can just rattle off the next five or six guys are so accomplished. Andy Reid is two hundred. Plus wins Harbaugh Sean. Payton these guys are one hundred. Wind coaches was super bowls. You Know Carol that you're talking about about borderline hall of famers all these guys and then you've got some of the young guys like cow Shanahan. WHO's a stud? And you got older. Like Mike Zimmer. Look at my Zimmer. What what he's done in Minnesota since he's been there so clearly players matter and I'm not trying to diminish their their importance to this league because you're not like you you might be able to over achieve and football unlike the other sports with average players but your ceilings cap? I think unlike any time I ever remember in part part of this is maybe the Patriots are a little bit down but there are probably eight teams. They could win the Super Bowl in. What are they all have in common the yacht? Great coaches coaches. Hey this just in. It's officially fall. Means a lot of things a lot of different people changing colors time to break out the pumpkins break out the football most importantly break out my friends at truly heart. Seltzer truly has only one hundred calories but as five percent ab in only one gram ram of sugar per container. It's that can't miss drink of the seasons of pickup and try truly heart Seltzer today. throughly drake what you truly you want. Okay let's go game by game on Sunday. You guys can hold me to this. I'll I'll guess the Games on Turkey Day. I'll go cowboys over. The bills else must win if the cowboys lose Jerry Jerry firing everybody. I'm GonNa take the bears under no circumstances. Can I see Jeff Driscoll winning the game on Thanksgiving crazy. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA be listening to this after it already happened. And then I will take the Saints Falcons. You're giving us an NFC south game on Turkey Day at just I don't know feel feels weird. I love that but I will take the saints. Go to some games that have not not been played yet packers after the giants giants stink. They are awful. Their defense is hideous. Pat Shurmur good offense coordinator terrible head coach because seen this coming a mile away I said at the moment they hired gross the packers. Yeah they got their ass kicked by the forty niners niners. This is your classic Bounceback Game. You know I think Davante Adams I place in daily fantasy. I love pick daily fantasy players against people teams like the giants the giants. The buccaneers the cardinals. There's certain teams in this league. Were guys go off Davante. Adams didn't do anything against the forty niners. I like him to bounce back. Same with Aaron Rodgers I think he had twenty completions in one hundred and five yours. That's that's like a stat line. You'd see Danny dimes not Aaron Rodgers. So I'd I expect Nice three hundred yard game now. The weather probably could be crappy but still I would expect Aaron Rodgers and the packers to kick the crap out of the giants. I liked them minus seven in this game redskins at the panthers this another game that the panthers are knocking to make the playoffs but I think they thoroughly over Over this over. The course of the season established himself as a really solid team. And maybe if the season starts over they would you know in had Kyle Allen from the beginning when they drop. Drop those games Cam Newton because embarrassed Cam Newton. He just was fifty percent. He had no shot. Maybe they make the playoffs. Maybe it's closer. May maybe they're in the mix haskins stinks ease. Every time I watch them slow-breeder not a quick decision maker. It's unfair to like. I'm not making some blanket. Lincoln opinion. He'll never be good but right now. He's awful we'll take a practice squad guy in way over his head. Now you could say. He's a rookie. But I saw Gardner Mint you. Didn't you know Pe- right down his pants. He at least could function in. dwayne really can't right now now. It's He's had a coaching change. mid-season the franchise is a joke. Doc but I I like the panthers now minus ten points but I still I like sanders. Big niners at the rate is probably the best game some of the day the Ravens coming off a short week right. They probably got home at eight in the morning. Lamar Jackson is writing this. This wave of dominance on like something thing we've seen in a long time. The niners have been the best team. Start to finish in the league. This kind of a tough match-up for them. Some running quarterback skyler and Russell of given them trouble the pocket. A quarterback save dominated. Is the running quarterbacks that have that have hurt them a little bit now Ford as a recording this and thought it was a chance the Ford place which Agai like that would help against Lamar niners getting six points. That seems like a lot because the niners can run the ball they can control the clock. It's going to be terrible weather but it's not a grass field so it's not going to be slipping and sliding in the sense of the mud bowl like when the niners played the Redskins I think you'd have to pick the Ravens and I'm a little biased here because I watched the nine or so closely but games in Baltimore tough trip ten. AM KICKOFF for West Coast team the stats. We've heard it for years. It's just a tough situation especially late in the season but I do like the niners plus six. That number has been going up and up and up. I don't know I mean I think the niners niners. It's not like the Ravens are dramatically better than the niners. They played on a neutral field on a normal week. The game would probably be like a one or two point line most so no I I I I like the niners to cover probably the ravens. A Win Titans at the colts. This pretty good game to the titans. Listen when since Brian Tahoe. Has I've been starting quarterback. He's changed the franchise. Marcus Mariota couldn't complete wide receiver screens Ryan tannehill running over people go line Derrick Henry. Who's going to be a free agent? Read in some stuff on twitter this morning. We'll take the titans might franchise him because if he were to hit the open marcus someone would pay him. He is a stud. I went to titans. Ot as I think a year ago maybe two years ago two thousand eighteen spring. He is so big he looks l.. Defensive Linemen and he can really run he can really play when he gets going and he changes it for them because the titans defense is solid. Then you've got the colts who listen depending on what game you watch Kobe. You can go God. He's pretty solid or leaves leaves something to be desired now. He did hurt his knee. Ty has been banged up the season. Eric Braun hasn't quite been the same but the culture well coached. This is a great game. I probably probably would pick the titans plus two and a half but to me. This is a coin flip game and whoever wins this this huge swing game for the playoffs. You know this is this is must win for both both teams. This is an important game for not just the AFC south but the AFC wildcard. Whoever wins game depending on what happens to the Houston Patriot? Patriot game is got a chance to kind of solidify themselves as sixty because of the titans win this game. Then they play the raiders. Next week they could be in the driver's seat for that succeed and they still play Texans twice so they wouldn't be dead to win the division and then it would be pretty clear that the titans and Texas are GonNa make the Playoffs Eagles at Miami. I ah this has to be a game for Carson. Wentz talked about him earlier in the week. He hasn't been playing very well. Miami's one of those weird bad teams. They play so damn hard heard this in Philly. It feels like the buildings burned down just because they have super bowl hopes now their playoff lives are hanging on by a shoestring even though I view them as a playoff team even though mathematically the right in it because they're right at again Dallas. I'm assuming they win. Still One game behind him but hell bills could be them so. I like the Eagles in this game raiders at Kansas City. Welcome to Reality Oakland. You're not very good. Your defense is I listened. The bengals might be worse defense. I'd even say they're not because they got better players. The raiders defense is atrocious. I like Kansas City to destroy. Courroye the raiders. I think the raiders who just got kicked by the jets are going to get their ass kicked by the chiefs and then they play the titans next week at home they lose that game like playoff. Talk Doc you'd like Jim. Mora senior was at plants. Like shut up. Stop talking about playoffs for the raiders. Derek Carr atrocious in the cold weather. Jack del Rio has tweeden about it. Then he's Owen. Four and games under forty five degrees him and Jared Goff. There are no two quarterbacks. I feel more comfortable making a substantial wager when they play ankle weather they shrivel. They're just they can't do it for whatever reason why Kansas City to win big and then they're eight and four and they're kind of back in the driver's privacy you know they they gotta get there kind of mine right down the home. Stretch to get the seating Tampa at Jacksonville. Tampa has been a bizarre team all year. Because is James Turns the ball over at historic rates but also throws a lot of touchdowns and between Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and my Guy Roggio at. US's now kind of running the ball. Well they do have an an explosive offense but their defense stinks. Ram Trucks Motrin back to back truck of the year. We're not bragging about it. We're just being honest. Landscapes changed and we've changed with stronger more powerful innovative and more luxurious. You think award leg this will give us permission mission to take a victory lap. Well you'd be dead wrong. The only thing on our mind is getting better delivering harder for our customers and pushing the limits of what's possible because when you lead from within you redefine right what a truck can do. Ram built to serve. Ram is a registered trademark of FCA US LLC Jacksonville. Who caught a little gardner magic earlier in the season come back to Earth but this game is a pick em in Vegas coin flip game? I'd probably lean Tampa just because Jacksonville defense has been really the last couple of years years since they played in the AFC championship game has been a shell of itself. Now they trade jalen Ramsey Colossus. Getting older you know it's just miles. Jack isn't quite. That is good as he once was. It's understandable but they should not be I mean when I look up and it's twenty eight to three or whatever against the titans at the end of the half like what what is going on. They're kind of gutless this year. It's kind of sad because they do have a lot of talent. I guess I would lean Tam. This game jets at the bengals. Bangles are losing this Sam. darnold get hot. The jets are playing. Well there was a story that after the game. I can't believe the New York Post reported this that Sam Darnold went out and got drunk and was kissing a chick remember. Everyone's middlekauff you're being so mean about his motto. He's just he didn't know kissed a girl again. I'm pro making out. I'm oh getting drunk after wins. I'm pro parting if you're starting quarterback in the NFL. I would. I would do so. It wasn't a story to me. It was kind of funny. But I'm I'm a big SAM. darnold Guy I. I'm glad that starting to kind of get his Mojo back and He's looked really good last couple of weeks. He's a very talented player. He went number three in the draft for reasons. He has all the goods to be a franchise quarterback. Now it's on the jets to do a good job building around him for him to just keep figuring out the game mentally so he doesn't get in these positions where he sees goes but he's only twenty two years old to meet a sky's the limit Rams Arizona. If the rams can't win this game like they are. It's an indictment not just on the season but big picture like they might be screwed. How are they gonna add offense of Lyman? They're not GONNA have any free agency agency money because they're paying five guys sixty percent of the cat then you look at the draft picks first round picks coming up. Do they've gone to this if it was an. NBA team they'd be fine but in the NFL. You need more than three or four players in one big issue for them is. If you can't block for Jared Goff you're screwed. He's like a twenty six year old. Eli Manning he can't move so he's not athletic enough to avoid the rush and their offensive line is is a joke. They can't they can't block anybody. Anybody in Whitworth. who was their best player? A couple of years ago is now you just got old. He was old. He was kind of defying father. Time for a minute and I really don't know what they do. They got Jared Goff. Who who they're paying one hundred ten million dollars who can't function behind a bat offensive line and they don't have good offense blind? They get todd Gurley who they're paying Hannah boatload of money. WHO's a shell of himself? The got brandin cooks who they overpaid slash has concussion issue. So he's can't really produce the only guy really living up up to the hype to get two of them Jalen. Aaron Donald are good players. They were worth big money the other three guys or not so. That's you can't invest your money in the wrong players in the NFL. Well were you will lose browns at the steelers At really know what to make of this game the browns should win and right their offense is kind of click in these last couple of games. Odell Jarvis just had what three touchdowns last week. Nick been good all season. Kareem Hunt Looks Awesome. Since he's been back now. I just never trust Freddie Kitchens in pressure spots. He did beat this team two weeks ago but the elephant in the room going to be myles Garrett at this game I think I saw something on twitter. They're not going to allow myles Garrett Jersey into into the wherever the hell the steelers play. What's it called Fed at Heinz field? But what do I feel good about putting money on duck. Hodges the steelers are getting two and a half at home. I kind of like the browns. The more I think about it but I do have faith in my Tom. And some of these spots. This is tough game. I'm interested to watch out. This bad boy plays out pats at Houston the more more I've thought about this game. Aim this week is Houston is so dependent on their wide receivers Hopkins and fuller when those two guys eat. They win if those two guys don't produce they're screwed. What does New England do better than anyone they cover? Stefan Gilmore has been had one of the great like three or stretches of any corner ever. He's been he's underpaid and he was at the time the highest paid corner in the League. I just I don't like the match for Houston Right. I do not like the matchup for Houston they can really cover in the Texans. Don't really do anything else. Well beside throw the ball Bell Jack makes him sound like there. The ninety four forty niners. 'cause I was watching some of this press conference this morning. But that's not the hace their a three man team and you can say Romeo does a great job all you want. But I think I'll take Josh mcdaniels. Tom Brady and just their ability to figure it out. WHO's the corners? Texans right now are bad. I mean there's Garin Conley's not very good that they don't really have much of a pass rush with this Texan squad dizzy watts out for the year. So I excuse me I like the Pats in this game pretty handily and if Houston loses independent depending on what happens in this titans colts game either way. Someone's gotTa Win that Game The AFC south just becomes interesting again. Come down the home. Stretch your baby okay. Let's dive into the middlekauff. Middlekauff mail back. It's where I answer you. Guys questions and agile middle caught fire into the. DM's could this be the best defensive line ever ever speaking of the forty niners second off. You were wrong on Bosa like when I watch football on Sunday that do jump off the screen. He unstoppable and he might be be the defensive player of the year. Why did you not like them? Let me down a lot of tape. Ohio state second would love to know as a scout what this is we gotta work on our grammar a little bit but I appreciate the effort. Yeah I thought Nick. His athletic ability was was just a little limited. Like when I see the myles Garrett the Khalil Max even the clowns they were elite athletes but it was either a coach in the League or it might have been Daniel Jeremiah. When I was texting during the draft process they just said I think it was a coach? Generally he said you just born to do it they just so if you worry so much about forty times and how are they highly. Jump like don't worry about that crap. Sometimes I got that in me I I a little Davison me. And it doesn't matter the guy was born to dominate. And Yeah just I was to critically. I was just too critical of some shit. That just doesn't matter. He's in. He's an elite player and he's GonNa be elite player as long as as healthy. He's he's a hall of fame talent. He he really is and best defensive line ever. I'd have to think about that one. You GotTa get it done in the playoffs. I think the Oh seven seven pats with definitely the eleven or not the Oh seven bats. The team beat the. Oh seven pats the seven giants and then the eleven giants with like J. p. p. e. were nuke. Oc Human Ura canty and then the ones with stray hand. Those Talk Hawk. They dominated when all the chips were in the middle of the table so it's awesome to dominate in the regular season. That matters because that gets you to the playoffs but the stakes aches get even higher come January so can you dominate in January. And I don't see why the forty niners wouldn't be able to dominate in January. But but I do think that to claim a best defensive ever best offense ever you gotta get it done we say forever the best offense ever seven pats and then that second year of Peyton manning well you got Win Super Bowl. You know you gotTa Win The symbol for me to put you in a Montana unit or some of those cowboy units or some of the far of groups. I'm just thinking on top of my head I mean there's several other offenses you gotta get it done by James Harden's he's better than Michael Jordan. Bullshit you can't keep flopping in the playoffs no no one cares what you do in January. Nobody except from twitter account the tweet out your highlights. This whole thing in sports is about playoffs and championships championships. Now there's there's other stuff it's important you play. Well you get paid. You lead a good life. You'll get famous all that crap but the whole point of this is the win in win win games matter so yeah. They're they're an elite regular and even of line. I don't see why they wouldn't be elite in the playoffs. But there's GonNa be a lot of pressure on them in the playoffs to dominate. Okay Listen to your take on Dallas New England game the game and you had a key point bringing the score remarking that the game was not as close to the score would show basically that New England owned US defense. Certainly Slade in Dallas has a knack for stepping on their own feet constantly. You didn't bring up the tripping call. I didn't bring up the trip because I don't care I'm not going to allow tripping call to act like like that. Was the reason the cowboys lost. Because it was the reason the cowboys loss is because Jason Garrett was up a river without a paddle I mean he. We just had no clue what was going on. Brady look may I agree. Brady's look all season and Zeke's showed up. I would agree. I never Zeke suck. It was superior defense. Challenging teamed acclimated to the region. anyways my question not a big college guy so I never know who's coming out other than a few names for the upcoming draft to feel Dow should pick defense who would potentially truly be available at the Dallas. In early twenties. I would say they could always use another defensive line and you look at the defensive line. They struggled getting pressure in the game him against Brady and if demarcus Lawrence doesn't dominate. Like who else did they have You can never have enough defensive backs with Vandereycken who is banged up and Jalen Smith. I would imagine they're not gonNA take a linebacker in the first round so I would say defensive back or defensive linemen I think one of those two areas the player wise. I'm not super locked in on the draft right now. To be honest we about what players would be in that value ranch. I'll have a better idea come like February February.

Do you think there is a realistic chance to break the curse possibly wintering this year. I think we're GONNA find out a a lot about the vikings over the next month. They go into Seattle and win that game and then they host Green Bay and win those games. I'll say hell yeah. They are a super bowl contender. I mean I think they're super bowl. Contender enter as we sit here right now. I think the push back from people that are anti I think would be anti cousins. Not Their defense is good enough. Coach is good enough. It's cam there kanter candor quarterback and we're going to get a front row seat on our couch unless you live in Seattle and are going to the game when they play the seahawks. Can he go in. And the twelve. Twelve's that place is always so much louder on a Sunday or Monday night. Those fans places nuts in a night game. Can he go into that hostile environment and produce. Because 'cause he's played really well this season he really has beside the one game against the bears where he was atrocious other than that. He's been good. They win that game. I think we start talking. Can they win the division when you win that division and you get a home game potentially depending on how it all plays out. Maybe you get a home homefield by. Yeah if somehow in China John Out of the realm of possibility they would need the saints to drop a couple of games in the niners too but they could get the one seat if they won the next five games and schick weird down the homestretch. That's probably more likely best case scenario for them. If they ran the table and went I guess they would be thirteen and three. Probably be the two seed. But I wouldn't want to go play the schools and that place Rockin but it's going to come down. How good kirk cousins plays in the in the big moments and actually? I'm becoming more and more confident with him. Just because of the way they built their team and the way they've built their team is if they can come back and he's clearly really important but the running back to star in the pass rushers are awesome with all the talk about moving. NFL Franchise overseas. How do you see the possible playoff? Logistics working the reason the regular season can work with buys consecutive. Oh Games with the wild card and divisional rounds could be sticking point. I'd love to hear your take on that well if they moved the Jaguars. You wouldn't have to worry about plath games right I'm just getting Yeah I mean I. I can't pretend to really thought it that for through so there are huge roadblocks and hurdles to figure out I I I completely understand that and I don't I'm saying they should move them there if they want to. I don't necessarily think they will. I live in Charlotte. And I'm a huge panthers fan with so many speculation swirling around Ronald Fares Future. Do you think there should the he should go. And if so who are some head coach replacements that you David tepper going. After I think Ronald there is a really good head coach. If he got fired he should get a job immediately. Like he is a playoff level. Head coach do. I think he's going to be fired. You say a new owner. They're going to miss the playoffs. It's an easy kind of point in the franchise for him to hit the reset button so I would say yeah. It feels kind of likely. He's a he's as a lead. Go candidate. Right potential coaches well McCaffrey. Dj More they got some pieces on offense Cam Newton in situations going to be up in the air. They still got keithly buddies. Getting a little older. I would imagine Dave tepper. New owner would go after an offensive coach. A temp temp maybe. He writes an enormous checked Lincoln. Riley Matt Rule Call Josh mcdaniels other. Those three guys who are really the coaching candidates. This this year. Brian Schottenheimer Groman. Those guys are going to get a head coaching job. I'm hard pressed to see I. Everyone keeps asking me who the head coaching candidate. Well Lincoln Riley Matt Rule and Josh mcdaniels. I don't really know that there aren't really I mean. If Ron Rivera fired he would be one. If Jason Garrett got had fired I wouldn't hire him but maybe someone would me. I guess you could do worse. I think David tepper when he's thinking about firing Rana Veronese ask that question to whoever's around like who. Who are we going after? Can we upgrade our. We just firing coach because we should fire the coach. I think sometimes that happens Kim's but that to me is what you're going to have to figure out before you pull the trigger hope. Everyone had a great thanksgiving. You know if you're listening to this you're probably power down some some leftovers. That's that's that's the best Thanksgiving you just get the pound leftovers. There's no better feeling than just be like you know what I'm GonNa get fat for the next two or three days and I don't give a shit who judges let me just eat. Eat eat more enjoy the weekend. Enjoy your family. I mean this with all sincerity and thankful for all you guys.

You don't have to choose. the overpriced. Big brands just had to high sense. Dot com to find out how simple getting a tv can be. That's h. i. S. e. n. s. e. dot com. Hi sense let's get real bachelor party. I'm juliet limit. It's thursday. I've got kelly here hi kelly. Hello how're you doing. I am living the life in kabul mexico. So i am just more relaxed than ever. I feel like last week. You shared two things one was that you don't like to go in the ocean just like to look at it from a pool. The other is that you don't like to pose for influence or photos. Then you promptly did both of those things on your instagram. I thought it was so not planned at all and didn't even realize i was doing it until after i posted those photos and got so many. Em's like you're not that bad of a closer like what are you talking about. And i was like all right one. Maybe i'm harsh myself. That's one too. I think i'm just uncomfortable and awkward while doing it. Maybe take five hundred photos of me with the professional photographer and no one else around. Yeah i might be able to get like one or two good ones but like am i the person that can walk down the street and be like. Hey random person takes seventeen hundred pictures of me. Hosing randomly on a street corner. No i can't do that. Maybe their self. Is there so weird but anyway i was just really funny so who knows what will come out this week and then you'll be doing immediately after also out who will looking over the beaches like best case scenario. It looks beautiful. I am quite jealous. I've never been to kabo. It looks wonderful. I stand by my statement. But that's the best setup. I it looks really nice. Yeah i who who could fight you on it Let's talk about the bachelor and the end will catch up on below deck sailing yacht which it's just been. What a journey with that show. I can't believe i. Honestly blowback med is back and i used to love madison like it but i was just like not ready to move on. Not writing people from this drama so i still have two options that need to be answered from sail yachts. That's what makes it harder to move. On and danny situations yet. Tragic getting worse by by the day Feel for her anyway. We'll come back to that at the end. Let's start with thomas. Kelly even the captain of team thomas for quite some time. I think a lot of your opinions are coming home to rhys. You also been the captain of team blake and i both of them are sort of like you know. They're they're riding high. So you posted some some polls on your hair. What was the thomas. Feedback like People don't like thomas. I don't i don't hey he didn't do anything i mean. I think it's just easy to jump on the bandwagon. A lot of people are just like he's an idiot. Like why would you say that totally get that. I'm not. I'm not saying that. He said everything. The right way definitely fucked up a little bit there. Yeah but i'm like he's saying what every single guy on there things like there's just no world you go that show and you don't think there's a potential to increase my platform and there's a potential for me. Maybe be bachelor like it's just something that can happen at stating the obvious. Should he have set it to the group of guys first of all but fucker you even talking to the guys like. I'm like you don't owe them anything to tell them. How you really feel about things. I was thomas. I would've been like no of course not like. Why do i need to tell you guys anything seriously it. Should you become friends of the people in the house. I actually don't know the answer to that. Like i if you're going to have fun if you feel like you don't have a connection with the lead that i like you just have to like go for friendships and go for laughs but if you do have a connection with the lead like like is it a good use of time to befriend people. I don't know no. I also would say that every other season i'd be like no. You do not need to make friends this season where the guys are controlling the vote do you you. You have to get the numbers on your side. I was thinking like next episode. Where who are they going to gang up on like. Who's next up that they're all going to be like no. We don't like yeah. It's gonna be blake. They're going to be passed in its. You're never happy when a new person comes into the house. It's definitely going to be him. But she's a affirmatively chosen him so if she like quickly changes her mind. And let's let's the tribe. Change the vote that i i don't know without about katie. There's no way that happens. I hope not. Because i'm you know i'm jean. Blake over here. And i'd like to see i also think that it seemed like they had some chemistry there. She's excited about him. She seemed nervous when she went to the door when she was swinging her arms. I was like oh. That's like a nervous thing. that's cute. I thought the whole thing was cute. Even him getting locked out afterwards like i just thought it was very. Yeah i loved it. I loved it all. I also love lake so like anything would probably gonna make me happy. Why do you like what is it about him. I mean he's like ugly. But i'm not attracted to him personally. I think that. I think he is huge. Maybe because his personality. I thought with clare he was great. Like you really got to know him with clare. He was one of the front runners. I will you know if there could have been a front runner adele. Yeah outside of dale was one of the ones that got a lot of tv. So i felt like i got known loved them and then like with keisha. I was hoping that he would do well. And i was just like he's just not going to do well. He still like fucked up about like getting switched over from claire You could tell. He wasn't fully bought in dacia. He doesn't do change. I feel. I feel like yeah. Like he like he decides he wants something or someone goes for and he can't change course. I think he tried keisha. And i mean she's gorgeous. I feel like he was like why not. Yeah let me just try. But like you could tell he was just not there like he was with claire So i didn't feel like anyone on glare season by the way got a real chance So i'm happy to have him back. So i think i think he's cute from clair's and he was cute he he you know they talked about how he dmt her and he read the book about. I think we parental grief that which which is really cute. That goes one of two ways either really cute. And you're like oh you're interested in me or it's like my god that's horrifying take a look at the yeah making The the i feel like there is a little bit of crete. There's a few creepers on this on this season. How who's creepy. yeah. I think listen greg's one on one was great but the last i think maybe it's the date set up to like the group therapy and then this day i was just like this is just like really showing. I cringe too much. I think in this season greg. Greg was just a total alan on the group date. This week he thought he did rate. I know also problem. He thought he'd crushed at. Yeah i thought andrew s herash the entire episode Would you have eaten those tacos. And the launchable meet that. He brought he He brought quote unquote. I yeah i am a taco bell person. So i love what do you think that was actually taco bell i to love taco bell. Let's your order. We discussed this on monday as well. I am a very like playing taco bell order so one i get the nachos but it's but just the chips in the cheese not anything else like you get nine so it's like going to the movies when you get. It's like chips in a little thing of cheese the cheshire so frigging good. I don't get how they're so good. They don't taste like normal Who knows what they're made out of honestly. It's from talk about yesterday. By i chips in the cheese and then i get to Beef and cheese tacos soft tacos job. Even he's get one doritos Lowering ranch taco. Yeah yeah i like a double decker taco and she's according to crunch but i also just like the fresco tacos taco bells great. That's all i want to say. I think it's topped tops. Three two am after during game editor. Polly like i don't really. I don't want mcdonalds anymore. Like taco bells usually like my where. I used to watch jack in the box. I love jack in the box. Taco's have you had those two dollar so also know that it's not me not me. It's like soy away. Yeah i was addict. When i i was addicted to them at one point in my life when i had to work like seventeen hour days and i would just like run and get them and at one point One of my. I don't know if she's vegetarian or vegan. Brenda slick with me. And i looked at that but you can have one or shii. It might not even be real cheese in there. No they're so good though taco bell jack in the box tacos by my top too late night drive through experiences particularly in an uber. I just feel like that's just a great great los angeles experience. I would agree with you. Pre pandemic post pandemic. I'm not taking Uber because they're seven hundred dollars. Go like a ma. It's easier to just hop on a bird. Scooter in risk your life. I twenty minutes and get to where you need to go. That's a great point. Yeah Uber's you're so so expensive in new york during the pandemic i was like. I'm not paying for newborn. I will continue to take the subway. i i'm just fine. Thank you very much in. The prices are insane right now. I had to take one recently. And i was like wait. What in pre pandemic like compared to other cities. but now i've heard that really high so anyway high and hard to get so knock great. Find bird So do you think that was really taco bell. Based on your expert opinion. I was like no way. But then i looked it up the closest taco bells four miles so could have been i did not think it was not taco bell. So now that you're bringing it up. And i'm like did look like a much heavier taco than talked about talking and also like around the tacos. It had there was launchable monthly. Yeah which. I thought was like the to mention anything about lunch. A weird a weird thing. That's kind of part of bachelor. Adjacent culture is like shark. Khuda reward and The sky jared freight is a comedian has come on this a few times like woods grading a lot of charcuterie boards like his thing is like he's like the board lord or whatever but then matt during his season was making charcuterie boards every monday and they were but they were like stupid. Ones like you know. Having like s'mores a dunk a roos on them or like other like kid. Food like that. Like not like a tasteful charcuterie board or board. I would love dunker charcuterie board. I loved on chris. Of course. I love kid food. I recently went to the grocery store. And i bought noodles like for the swimming pool and cheerios and i was like do i have a kid yes i also not against lunch ables. I thought when i saw on the side i was like what is it by. I don't i don't know. I like it was just really weird. It was a weird touch and that whole board was like just silly also notably. They'll be did e. That was one of the only time they actually eat on the show. I also was thinking. I wonder how fought these tacos are because he is alia with filming. Yeah i was like these tacos passed to be so cold. It looked it looked across. I don't know if i loved cold taco bell. No hot talk wonderful. Call fast food in general. It's like fast food because it's made quickly and should be quickly like as soon as possible. Yeah also i feel like it like turns into something else. Yes on the counter for longer than a day. You're like. I don't know what i ordered is not not anymore. Yes seriously Andrew that was cute though. I just believe that the english accent time to retire it. Although one thing that has come to light this is come up a lot. Katie was wearing the same white sweater when she met blake on the bench that she wore on a therapy date with nick. And so it's very clear. Many people pointed this out on social media. Including i think morgan pee on tick-tock. That's been heavily circulated So it's clear that was shown kind of out of order which just leads you to think about everything. And i'm like andrew ass time to retire the british accent but like maybe in real time. He's only been there a week and so he's like still rocking with this bit. Yeah i also think the date was kind of set up for something like that like it wasn't a serious situation like i thought it was fine for him to have english accent in that moment also because he did so well it was like fine. Did like what greg did. I would have been like stopped So now that greg was during a bit from horrible bosses. I learned this after. Oh no i did not. He started out doing like a bit from horrible bosses and then kept it going for reasons. That'd be to me. Yeah wait no yes. I didn't know that i did also see morgan. Peace talk about the editing error. Which clearly the last two weeks something happened with the editing. Because like we got one date this week yes like not enough in all my lives. So it's like something happened are there was too much content because thomas. I think that they have split this one episode into too right. Yeah i guess so and it just the the birth ceremony steph is confusing. So it's like yeah though. This is the fourth episode. I think it's only the second or third elimination. Yeah which made me. There's going to be a bigger elimination happening. Because i feel like it's moving kind of slow which also there was a lot of comments on my instagram. About just like these people just like not loving the season. it's not. I don't know it's hard. It's hard to week four. I'm out because i'm gonna continue watching it. We're gonna continue talking about it. I it for. Yeah it's just but it is true like it's missing something. I what do you think it is. I think a lack of travel is really getting to be a problem yet. Maybe also is not the first season where there's lack of travel just kind of like okay. We've been here done this. Like you know the the dates can only you can only do so much in especially in new mexico. Like i don't know what like what in cold new mexico. yeah like. what are you supposed to. I don't know what they're gonna do. I think the dates are kind of like I don't think he usually chris. Harrison is on the show for like a minute and forty five seconds. I think we talked about this before. Like they're not fully I feel like we see tation caitlyn a lot in my presence feels more intrusive among and i'm just like this is supposed to be katie doing this by herself. Making these decisions by herself experiencing these guys by herself Like i don't think we need caitlyn and tastes opinion about every single thing that happens. Yeah yeah totally. It's like okay. thanks for hanging. i think. Also there's recycling dates which like they obviously when you do like bungee jumping in like singapore versus like somewhere else like it's only only bungee jumping for like one season or whatever it is but when you have a different location and like there's like different talking points but like this date group date was basically on season. They did like a treasure hunt where she was like in the middle watching. Yeah and they like the food thing and it's just it's just getting boring and because there's not like more natural fighting like you'd get on like the challenge or on survivor. They're stuck in like one location without a job. Like it's basically like there's like there's not a lot of natural drama and by a launch into like. There's a couple different kinds of reality shows wants the competition show which is like the challenge survivor. One is like a subculture whether it's like jersey shore or pop rules like the front group. They worked together whatever they lived together. Maybe or it's like these dating shows the dating shows. I think you have to work the hardest to fabricate some of the drama. And it's just really hard when you're when you're so limited what you could tell. Yeah and not just being stuck in one location for too long a time. I mean i think probably much harder. I don't want this to come off the wrong way. But it's probably much harder with a group of guys and girls in one location So i think that maybe matt season got away with it a little bit more into now having to do it with katie is just like like yeah. The thomas stuff is so like overblown out of proportion to me. Yeah like we all we all we all of his podcast team thomas for just like he did the right thing. He was honest about what it is to be on this show. Also his elimination was insane. Yeah like i thought that was like rude. I was just like okay. I guess katie wanted to have a moment but that was like. Was it necessary. No if you wanted to do that do have to caro. Yes seriously seriously. I was just like i don't know why you chose this moment. Also like he came and spoke to you in private and you didn't have the same energy so it's weird. You didn't have that energy ben. And since then he's done nothing but like apologize or like been open and honest but then you have this energy in front of the guys. Like i was just like kind of weird super weird. I felt like that was obviously producers. Suggested it and see my kaelin annotation. We're also really into that too. Yeah part yeah. I know but part of me is like i don't think and i don't think this of caitlyn patia but i feel like girls in general like friends get like overprotective or it's like do we really want katie to be with thomas. No so we're going to push this even more. Yeah and and i think There's a tendency among women. I mean as as a woman who's dating and dates like you and your friends just like demonize do monster is guys very clearly very quickly too quickly without any evidence at all. Yeah fuck that guy. Sick man get rid of pini. I saw this This week that my friends. And i like dying out where it's like when your best friend and her boyfriend or one of your best friends interbike break up and you like all together. Everyone's like bashing him like he's balding or like whatever he has a small penis like two days later she's like i'm back together with him and you're like great. Yeah okay. we'll just conversation everything i said. Please don't tell him anything that i said. Yeah you have to be really sure. The breakup get a stick because otherwise all the bad things you've said and like your true feelings are out there so which i feel like happens often. Yeah because you very quickly just go to like. Oh man don't know how to communicate like oh you just wanted to sleep with you or like you know all kind of cliche slums but then but you can say come out. And then they get back together in. You're like all right now. I have to pretend like we're like homeys again. It's weird yeah. Yeah and it's like is it. Is it better with the women to just like be so catty about them or like. Is it better to just like write off all men. I don't know the thing about the show is like an and this is sort of why i think the last couple seasons have been so like fraught is like this show is predicated on like generalizations cliches and stereotypes and also making fun of people. So just accept that. That's kind of like scar part of the bargain. So america seems to be on this journey together and we just gotta do the best. We can never relief them. When like greg does something so abjectly weird as like list the states and like a fake southern accent. You're just like this is creepy man globally. I guess when you take a step out of this situation the whole thing is bizarre so like are we shocked with something happens that why did they believe. Though that that katy couldn't hear that like clearly she can hear like now. They said that when there. Why would you believe that. Yeah i mean like what would be the point of doing it. otherwise. Yeah i mean like. They think that they're going to have you this whole thing just so that you know only you and the person next to you can hear like what's the point of the date. Then yes sir. Shaded doesn't get to know anything about you. That's just sees running around. Yeah no. I don't know i mean maybe they did actually believe that. I don't know it's really hard to say. What do you think about all the food they had to eat. It wasn't like i would eat twinkies retail. I just thought it was really. I thought it was really funny. Because he's guys are super health nuts but one guy that was like i haven't had a carbon year. I was like yeah not my tire seriously. Why don't you live a little bit more. Carbon five minutes and i'm actually craving when now watching you eat one. I know i was like. I'd love to get into that. I get one just doesn't talk about it just thinking like do they ever drink beer on the show. They only have liquor and wine. But i just the men drink whisky it like. I just feel like there's not only no carbs. There's certainly no beer. I also feel like they bear. Like i always thought that they had wine. They would just drink liquor out of wine glasses. Oh interesting. I don't know why thought that but that's what i always thought. I'm like knocking back like nine glasses of wine. Maybe they are. That sounds miserable to me. I- mosley. I love wine. But like i hate like wine drunk where you have like a stomach full of wine and then leisure. I don't know if you've ever thrown up off of wine. Oh my god. I have not pleased to say throwing up red wine when it looks like. It's like a massacre in the bathroom. That's disgusting that. I know that i guess disgusting. They limit them to chew drinks an hour now so like they're not supposed to drink as much but that. Yeah after carnage. Mario had the incident paradise. Yeah they they changed it to two drinks our drinks and our what if i have six drinks over three hours. I'm wasted like i am. I'm a huge well. I don't drink a lot. But when i do drink. I drink an enormous amount. A college kid. It's not high about that was gonna come out But i mean. I'm i'm like six foot one seventy five ish so for those listening from the very beginning yes size. Ten is not huge to me now. But i feel like i could easily to princeton our be totally five but maybe i'm not thinking about the six drinks in three hours. It seemed like a lot. I guess it depends on your on your tolerance. And and i think i have from going to the university of florida. I think my tolerance is astronomical. Probably shots i'm the gators person to my god Maybe she on the bachelor. You'll be able to hang tough getting you're married by for the glenn now like for the smaller women who also probably aren't eating very much for sure if they have like six cocktails over three hours wasted yeah. I didn't even think about that. Also you have to think about the people. Were talking about here. They're not people that have like chick-fil-a for breakfast in and out for lines like that's me probably drink porch. Someone who has like they they slice up a great for for almonds for. Yeah for breakfast. Like almonds in like four hundred khloe kardashian diet which is depressing. I'm assuming well. I don't know if she's on a diet because you know they get up and they do the work every morning in that site. Yeah yes i'm sure. Alcohol probably affects people that eat that way in our super healthy and workout and yeah affects them much quicker. We just like five three. Yeah we haven't seen these men drunk really like i feel like in general. That's another big difference in bachelor bachelorette. We just don't see the man very drunk halloween. Anyone that was like wasted yet. No right now. It's a trope that i miss. I think it's gone. I think because of the shows problems usually don't heavily feature drunk people anymore but it was a fun trope with numberless. You know still safe and everything. Yeah i mean it was nice. There's always like one especially on the first day. Yeah 'cause they're drinking for so long. It was all on one or two drunk guys. Yeah and and that's Back to katie to blake store. That probably was really late because she had finished a row ceremonies probably was like one or two in the morning or something and he likes when he was like. Yeah it didn't that didn't seem stage to me now. it did neither. I thought he generally mike he'd been sleeping and like the light was like blinding him and he has like oh cameras i like. I like that it was it was cute. I'm excited to see how the guys accept him since they're very like. I don't know a unionized group. Someone commented which. I love. Which is like i am all for all unions for all people except for people on the bachelor. It's not the place they're not employed so like most of you don't even have jobs to their overall. Certainly not even here. It's sure though like the group think it just katie as lead. And i also think this is like sort of like a change in leadership including chris harrison and other people behind the scenes katie being so impacted by like the guy's telling her who to get rid of is pretty weird like i've never. I've never really seen that before. Like maybe that maybe more people should have listened to the crowd. But i don't know i. I think it's pretty weird. I mean was it annoying. That like matt did not listen about victoria. Like at some point it was but it's also like at least you know matt is choosing whatever he thinks and also i think it shows that like he was experiencing something completely different. So like is it. The edit is the girls reaction. Like he's not. I don't think that katie should feel how the guys first of all the guys wanted thomas to have an issue because they don't i mean i think he's threatening but neither side by someone. Yeah yeah. I think six beautiful guy who seemed to be getting more time with katie is intimidating right so i think that they wanted him to be an issue and they were forcing it on him. Should we go around the room and ask everyone if they ever thought about being the bachelor. I'm sure he's not the only guy if you're not thinking about it you're living under a rock and and also like let's have some practical conversations people if that's not marriage material also showed multiple people like. They showed hunter talking to him they showed. I think. I think it's andrew talking to him like why all these people trying to like. Get something oh. I did appreciate the andrews conversation which was like They're talking about you. They're bringing it up so like you're gonna have to deal with it. I'm just letting you know. I appreciated that conversation and your aaron fighting was very funny to me be respectful. I was like what area kept yelling. Also he was like. Don't yell and he's yelling. I'm like they're both yelling. You can't tell someone notch yell at you when you're currently yelling at them. I thought andrew had a good point like did they have to bring this to katie. No there was nothing to bring. I know he didn't do anything he also. she's like. let her figure it out like if she wants to be with him besser she wants to be with. Yeah totally. he's going to sniff it out. We sniffed it out and supposedly we sniffed it out within twenty four hours like let's give katie a little bit more credit here. I agree and she's supposed to be like this like strong woman. So i let her do her thing and stand on her own and i. I wasn't that into that. I also thought that like trae. I'm like i think part of the reason why you wanna be the guy that says something. It's because you don't have a connection with her so you're trying to like you know. Get in there somehow kind of like it seems like aaron and katie has more of a connection because of everything that they went through with cody and then her going back to him and asked me about. Carl's so maybe trays like. Maybe this is the way to have a connection with them. And i'm like an even oranges being kind of like best like you're wasting your time. You shouldn't be talking about somebody else with your time with katie. Like why are we wasting our time with her. Yeah about someone else. Yeah i thought the trae thing was was interesting that he got the rose like. I do think she probably wanted to give it to him. I was like he didn't deserve all he did was snitch. Since shot get roses but we know what they get and i. he's just like annoying. I don't know. I'm definitely not into trey. I also just feel like. I'm like this sets a precedent like now people think like oh by make something up and tell you i'm gonna get the group date. Rose like yeah. I don't even remember trae on the group day. And now he gets. The group date rose because he went and told you something that like any of the guys that have sold you write anything unique. Of course of course. Of course michael. I think handle that. Like beautifies yeah. Yeah and he like you know. I think he was supportive but also addressed it lightly but was like. I'm not wasting my time on this guy like let's let's focus on me and you. Yeah yeah i know he. He's an adult. And you know what. I feel bad for hunter. I think hunters also an adult and katie posted on her instagram. That she And and hunter had done toast to his ten years of sobriety. I believe And that night. She didn't drink. She had cider to join him and being sober which is really classy mirror. Tavistock now zach and they just didn't show that and it's like hunters just like a total caricature but he seems like an interesting guy who actually has like an interesting backstory. And he's also a father and just like they're doing a lot of these guys dirty like we either don't hear from them at all or they are totally like stripped of what makes them like unique people. And i'm i'm sort of like i would like to get to know these guys. I actually liked to know who they are no about them. Yeah and then that big cheer for the more which began not. Oh more interesting. Which i think that is part of the thing. That's lacking is like the past. Two seasons editors have focused so much on the drama yet. I'm like. I don't even know like i remember at the end of last. I don't even know who matt has. A connection with like all i know about is the drama which seems to kind of be this season. Maybe there's a little bit more like you can kind of see. There's a connection with bragg can kind of see there's actually michael kinda see it with andrew but like i don't feel anything yet about any of the relationships and like usually after like night one other seasons. You're like us this person's it is going to be the person and they just the the producer focusing too much on the on the drama. Do we need drama for sure. But like that's not what like this show has been able to last on for fabbrica there's just actual connection yet. As far as i can tell yeah like we like the connections with like a sprinkle of drama not drama with like a sprinkle of connections which i feel like the last two seasons have been edited that way. Yeah and and like what tation zach you could see it like when they would like sit on the a bench together like they would like just very quickly fall into like a really cute position you can see their physical chemistry and that happens a lot and i just like. We haven't haven't seen that at all yet. No i also think with hunter. I don't know if you saw the previews for next week. But i'm like. I think they're just they want to edit him a certain way and so they're not gonna show more of like he is a person because he's going to be a crazy person next episode four hunter. I don't know i don't really. I don't know a lot about him. But i feel for him for some reason. I think that you're better. I think you feel for him. Because you've done more research on him so you're like wait. He actually has a story. That is not being told. Yeah so ever. Yeah exactly you got it. I maybe paradise or something although not always telling stories i mean i hope that thomason paradise i would have to assume that he would definitely. Yeah so. I'm hoping he's there and we get to see that he's actually not a bad guy and i can tell everyone that they were wrong. I was right if he ends up being a bad guy. I'll admit i. i like that. Whatever i get someone to agree with me or take my side like disagreement or debate and argument. I'm like thank you. i love that way. That's just yesterday My husband and i were debating about some like basketball thing in the pool. And i was like me and my husband. My brother my sister-in-law debating this topic and Obviously like everyone's drinking and so we're like going back and forth. My husband's like i'm trying to prove your point. And i was like yes. Thank you thank you for proving my quite he was like no. I'm trying to prove my voice. And i was like he said it right. I feel so good to win. This reminds me. I was talking to some people who know thomas from college. He went to university of san diego. And they're like yeah. He's like a nice normal guy so the streets are saying he's a nice guy. We just didn't get to see it. I feel like he is so. I am so big. He gets redemption baton bachelor paradise in. I hope. I hope that i hope. Katie find someone is happy after this. But i hope that she does regret the way that she treated him. Hopefully by the men tell all episode. I don't know if it's going to happen by them but hopefully by that. She probably won't but who knows depends issues engaged or not right now. I'm really curious. Also i did get like one or two comments. People being like kay is getting what she deserves based on her season with matt. What could she was like the one who told him about the drama. Yes and so now. She's like following for whatever. Eddie woods telling her about the drama. I personally feel like she. She dealt with the matt season totally fine. I have no without katie dealt with it but people. I guess people are still digging that she didn't handle it right. Yeah i mean that was a much uglier situation than what's going on here because that was there is like real bullying and yeah. It was bad person whereas here. It's just sort of like we have no idea where all we hung shouting. It's like it's like From anchorman this room loud noise is also like it's like i'm if the guys don't like you. That had they could just not like you. Yeah yeah it doesn't mean that you did anything wrong totally. She's like okay. There's just no connection doesn't always work out might like no no not everyone's going to like me. Yeah that's fine. i'm not gonna like everyone either. Trust me i know that one. It's just you're gotta pay personalities out goes me too so i'm like that's fine. That doesn't mean we have to like hate each other. We not like each other and move on with life. Yeah i just feel like. There's no way that she ended married from. From what what the season i just. Don't see it this group of guys where she's at right now. But i had to guess. Say no yeah and a lot of headed. Bachelorettes ended up married. Like i believe echinacea. They don't get married. We'll date for a long time. Like i i really do and i just don't see that with katie. Though she doesn't make good. These guys are good fit for her. No i don't see anyone that i'm like that makes sense the only guy. It's you're actually marrying michael. And i don't think that she would pick it sam and i don't know that they're a great fit. They seem like they have really different personas. And i don't know. is she. Ready to be a step mom. I i don't know but that's a big part of being with michael so just something to consider. I just don't see it marriage for her but you know what that's fine. Maybe that yeah. This road will lead her to meeting someone. she maybe wouldn't have met in regular life. 'cause now she's going to be famous. So katie good luck. Well i'm really trying to think if there's anyone that i think is even ready for marriage out of the guys michael. Yeah my the only one and like maybe hunter. But i don't we don't know i mean i think haiti based on what we've seen from the chew season so far i think she could be a step mom. Sure no she can't like is out of the point here is i. Don't know. I also think it would be hard to go on a show like this and then jump into that. Yes obviously your options are jumping into that or going to like hipster parties in new york with seven other people from bachelor living lice. I think it's a tough choice. How katie she's thirty at thirty. I think that's a difficult choice. Yeah you can really go on a direction in your life. You could end up with like jake off. You never know celebrity. You see for katie interesting. I was trying to think of someone who made sense. Don't a lot of the daschle's accession. Yes especially what about cousin. Greg for katie. Oh actually love cousin greg. I saw him talking about somebody somewhere. Nicholas braun. I think he watches the bachelor. Actually i tried to get him on the podcast before with he talking about hacia i think so he. He watches this show. I i t are others acting. He was talking about someone somewhere around. Like did not see that being your tight but very cool. Yeah i i love greg. I think he's hilarious on the show. Retail can't omelet without breaking a few. Greg's i love. It could definitely see katie with someone like him. But that's what i'm saying like most of these bike people and up with like country singers or football players or like so like also like you know your plan d like you go to the hipster party in brooklyn for a couple of months and then you end up with. Hasn't greg cazin greg houla new york. Yeah seriously the choices coming out of the show. La or new york actor athlete influence or marketing. It's sort of like those the choices you have to make also i would say the last season seems like a lot of people chose new york yes like previous seasons it's been very l. a. Heavy yeah absolutely. I think tyler and matt started that trend. So i don't know i'm i'm for. That makes sense if they were in. New york's yongqing together literally sharing a room type sharing sharing being back. Yeah i which super super weird. I mean i just. I had so many questions that i learned that i was like. I guess they never brought girls home. Always just went to ever the girls lift. Were yeah but also like tyler ended up with like one of the prettiest girls walking planet. Earth i'd say south and like hanging out with like serena williams so tyler did a great job. He has like if i'm even hyler. Cameron had dinner serena williams based on beyond the bachelorette is that insane. It's insane but it's not because so many people watch this show. Yeah i now. I know say but i'm not like shocked by it but again like tyler was dating a girl on the founder on the show that she he really likes shot he she was a widow. Jetta kid like like. Do i want to jump into this or do i want to date the prettiest girl on planet earth but at dinner with up proudly preschooler prettiest girl earth interest rita. That's that was that's the choice. I'm probably choosing especially at age. Twenty seven when nearest hottest tyler. I am glad that they like backed up the age a little bit being gone older to have. It's way better. i think i think also I think they should even go a little bit. Older people actually like make better rational decisions and also like just have sex faster when they're older and it's like more entertaining. Yeah i also just think baby. I left that also because i'm older son mike. Let's back it up back it up. Keep going back. I do not want to. I don't wanna watch the twenty two year olds like try to find out. You're just like this. We not talking to work out. We we're not under the delusion. Yeah so maybe. That's why. I like it being older i. I'm not. I'm not sure but yeah even also a little older. I feel like you get a little bit more like a true crazies. Oh clarity like you're still crazy at that age. It's like it is deep crazy. Not going away. It's an it's never leave.

Who was on the bachelor and then was a guest on below deck sailing off this past season. She was crazy. That's what we think of it and now sailing which we said we would do i this finesse reunion this two part reunion with the addendum of john. Jay al's talking to andy. Cohen is unbelievable. I can't believe we to go into below deck med so quickly. Because i'm not ready. Because i'm still processing like everything down. Not only danny in jail steph. But even like gary learning on the reunion that allie was pregnant and him being like obviously so shut. That was crazy. He was yes floored he was shocked. He also like right before that was like. We were at a full-blown relationship when we got off the show which i was like wait. What cause clearly she's like. I don't know how far along she is. She is i think she's like five months far enough along where there wasn't that much of a time off between her boyfriend now. Yeah i'm gary. yeah absolutely. She like went from one to the other. But like gary horrible boyfriend. Just absolutely awful. We'll yeah that'd be found out. He had a girlfriend cu. We hadn't seen eight months. Is that still relationship if you have. Who knows how many people he cheated on her wedding. It's only relationship if you're in jail if your prisoner joe and you can't see your significant other fair you don't have a choice like any other time. Why yeah. how can you explain that eight months like if you can't make an effort to see each other in eight months you really should break up. There's no reason army might be another gatty airy military. Yeah i can understand not completely as well as social the only reason it's true i mean so that was also heard in both of those situations you kind of know what you're signing up for. Sure like if you're not signing up for that at do not see someone for eight months. What are we doing here. yeah. I don't know that's just like a long distance friend if you're talking yeah pen pal. Especially if you're on a boat so like you're barely talking at that. I don't understand how yachties have relationships. Like i don't i just don't get it. They go long periods of time without seeing each other of course start dating someone on the boat you got to see colin and his name seemed kind of normal. Yeah they say no make sure well. He seems shirt to like. Make sure to contact her. Make sure to like non you anything that would embarrass her when she watched it on tv. He did nothing that he was perfect boyfriend. Yes you us. He's also just seems perfect. Wonderful yeah really. Hot very hardworking. You stick for me. He was like off the grid before the reunion like in the jungle of panama. That's my style. But i do love column a lot. He also seemed very rational. Like when things are happening on. The boat like gary was just going to have sex with her to make sydney matt in. Hughes's no wrote do that seven to do you. Don't look at the situation and think that's dancer absolutely. I I mean just the the whole danny jail staff. I can't believe this happened. I thought danny acquitted herself so wonderfully the way that she made a point to be like. I wish he was here to defend himself was so crucial and like so opposite of almost anyone else on bravo like she doesn't. She's not looking like tele one one-sided story. She's not trying to screw anyone like she bashed him my she did she say what happened. And you can learn. He was like yes. That's all correct. Yeah it was crazy. I can't. I don't get how he was like i want to. I'm the dad like i'm willing to training tasks. And she's like. I mean this is also off on social media but like i you could. I'm happy to let you take tests like we've tried. I'm just not paying for it. I guess it also. He would to go to australia for it right like wherever she has you. You have a kid there. You're gonna have to australia at some point. Well i think they'll i. I'm not trying to defend him but they are quarantine rules in australia. So like maybe that's part of it but yeah like he should've what someone asked me. That's like what should he have done. And i'm curious what you think my take is. He didn't necessarily have to move to australia but he should have checked in with her frequently. That should have made a plan about co-parenting. They should have made a plan about sharing finances and he should have made plans to be there in. The baby is born like just like account for the quarantine and like be present. Is the point instead of doing that. What he did which ghosting also just think at the bare minimum. You know it's your kids. Yeah i know. The time ron line online is just like there's literally no other option. I would get if it was like not during filming and like maybe she could have done something else. Like you guys weren't fully together. Whatever but like the timeline is you were fully on the boat with her. There's no other option now. There's no gray our here knowing astor. Yeah so it's just like at the bare minimum. You have to accept that it's yours and take accountability for that and then figure it out am i. Do i need you to have a whole mac planet. Have all the answers like no. This was an unexpected pregnancy. During do you guys live in. Different countries is not the easiest situation ever one hundred percent. I'm not asking you to expert on something you've never experienced nor were thinking this was going to happen. But you've had months now to try to start to figure it out and we're still not at step one. You're still not saying it's for sure your kid. Yeah he's he just selling mature and it was. It was pretty interesting watching him. Watch the clip and like having him asked to see at a second time. I was just like found that riveting. I mean that's sort of like you know not trying to reduce danny's situation down to that but it was pretty wild television and like he's just such a coward and to see the entire cast just be like what's wrong with you man. I was pretty wild. The one thing they agree on literally. I think he's also just to be on. Yeah he's waiting for and also like i don't blame him for not being well equipped for this. You know like he's twenty four. he's not. He wasn't ready for this but she was. She was honest she was like i want to have kids and she also she never actually led him to believe that this was not what she wanted. Yeah also like if you're getting someone pregnant than you're doing something where there's a chance of that happening. Yeah like as an adult. You need to be aware that there's a chance of that. I mean also. I mean i don't know maybe i just like take issues really seriously but i was just like a doctor telling me that it's probably chasing but it's not actually seen what's going on and i'm still having sex without a condom on is probably not happening. Definitely over that really quickly. Also i feel like when everyone was upset that when when he was like fine like she was annoyed that she wants to leave the boat. I was like no. I get it like. She's also i don. I would want to go to a doctor right away. Percents quercy. i'm going to doctor. You're going to a doctor. Getting off is not going to help me want to still have sex with you. It's not happening. i. I completely agree. I was just like doctor was just like most likely. It's shaping like most likely so we're just going to keep going on with life with a most likely. It just went by really. The whole thing went by really quickly. It's sort of moved on. It was funny the way they handle it. But i was also like wait. Wait wait wait. Like also i actually. I really appreciated the tasha being. Like i handle things wrong. Yeah she's awesome and so cool. They became friends. Yeah i i think i think you you love daisy right. Yes left are great job. I was like a on daisy. Just i liked her. She was great good. I obviously i think she's a really good she stew. I just thought that the whole her asking for so much help from the like dot crew like i was totally on their side of like. We don't ask you for anything. Yeah and now and now. I feel like she relied on them an enormous amount. Which means like someone in your group isn't doing their job if you have to ask for their help that much. Someone's not doing your job. And also i think being on the exterior seems way harder than the interior way harder though the interior like still exhausting. Shitty work it just seems easier. I think interior is more neu-. Yeah it's like i don't to do laundry or like make beds and vacuum but it's way harder to the deckhand. I could not imagine having to clean up after people in the boat. Rooms meant either like hotel rooms. I feel like is different like the boat. Rooms are just so tiny orders in their in them so much. Everything's like damn and knock great no Also i watching mad last night. The first episode. Which i that's always got. I'm just not ready to move on but it did really sh- remind me how small the sailing yacht is complete. Compared to the motoryacht like interesting. They were doing the prep sheet meeting. And they have like so much room in the crew mass and then even like the gas quarters or just like so much bigger. Yeah and just so. They had like a like a large hot tub. It was just like way nicer. I'm just like we talked about this offline but like i genuinely one no. Why if spending that much money while you're choosing to sail you have to like the adventure. I guess i don't know there's no other reason because it's clearly way more luxurious on the motoryacht differences significant as well. It must be. Because i is just way shittier. It's like i mean it still seems fine and if you're into sailing that's awesome but like there's no question that the motoryacht's much better no question. I also just think my family all being like large humans like watching sailing out. I was like i could never do this all else. Imagine like a group for the jailhouse like it would be so uncomfortable. Yeah i know you need. You would not be able to fit in to the room literally just it would be wrath anyway. I just. That was an incredible finale. I mean great job ever on the sailing yacht crew. I mean great television. i appreciate it. This will never happen again with allie. And danny being moms now. So i know the last like few seasons of below deck just didn't pregnant. Yeah guess what happened to get off the i. hannah. I was not expecting allied to get pregnant at me. They're shocked that happened so quickly. I don't see so one note before we wrap this up. They all looked different. Said different alley significantly different to me on the reunion looked great but to actually i thought gary state he lives exactly the same so call on calls wearing his like personal brand shirt there. I feel like they have like a bear. Like shoveled look about them collins. More put together to shovel. But it's still like could have been in a jungle yesterday to your point. Yeah like that's how they both like the fact that he gary came on the show with his chair wet and was just like. Oh yeah it's not dry at. I'll wait dry. I'm like you knew time reunion was like your hair. Try so crazy all really last note also love it ever in a far flung place whether it was like melvin sydney palma all over the place natasha in maryland. It's like okay also. I don't know if you follow natascha on. I actually even bother her unsocial. She spent time with barry. Yeah yeah and then she's She's easily the worst group. And i'm like are you friends with them or like what so funny. I did catch that. I was like okay if you want to spend time with them. Not the guess. I would choose but share. No i think that these i mean. Obviously they're all in like random places. But i mean this is i guess you know the their life just hop on boats. I guess so. I can't imagine it was funny. When allies like yeah. I'm gonna do the land life for a little bit. She signed a lease. You mean life. You're just going to do live hand life than the average life. See me exactly the yachting life. I don't know. I don't think i'm built for for i see sex. I'm not either. I would driving me the whole time. But i i mean i guess. This is something that people really want to do. Yeah there's obviously a market for it and you know it. It gave us some great tv. I'm gonna miss captain glenn while we have to go through this captain sandee season. But that's okay. You're not a capital sandy. Good she's okay just glenn so wonderful is the best. I think he's just. I like captain. I like the element that captain sandy brings to it because she creates some of the drama. And it's like feistier. Glenn is just like ever. If you guys wanna like go drink like there was. He didn't really like get on them. Ever why think also part of it. They couldn't leave the boat. So he had more lenient with what they can do that at the reunion where he was like everyone was like. Why are you letting them do all this. And it's like they're stuck on this boat again dollar option. Yeah it is what it is well. We'll see we'll be back next week more batch and probably some some bravo staff. We'll see who knows what else will be watching. Thank you so much for listening. I'll still be back on monday. There is an episode. Until i offense to talk to you and thank you to isaiah blakely producing this episode.

GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 280: Glorious Draft Haul, Why Not to Listen to the Consensus, Top WRs

"Golden state media concepts fantasy football podcast is your one stop shop for fantasy football news and advice deciding who to draft first round cowing Gaga and how a lot of your team got you covered additionally dynasty deletes he. Arlene? IDP. Daily Fantasy Football League Joanna's we breakdown down all the questions of fantasy football. It's the golden state media concepts, fantasy football podcast. Welcome into the GSM see fantasy football progress brought to you by the G.. M.. C. podcast network I'm your host Emmett Wyman is August twenty. First we are slowly slowly approaching. We want guys that means it strategies. Strategies and we'RE GONNA get into my drafted I completed the other night One of my leagues I was considering going on periscope on. Mud The social media page GSM for those that don't know G S MC underscore F- football or be F- football that's only to it but you get the point look that up on twitter make sure you follow that page if you haven't already but I was thinking of going live on air doing the draft as you know as we go along I, didn't I just wasn't gonNA work out the nobody can see. Who I was picking or you know who is who is getting picked? So it's just GONNA be me talking to arouse anybody wanted to see but as far as the draft I thought my drift went excellent I will get into that at the second segment. Later on we're going to break down some receivers today I really want to. Get the receiver group finished and then we'll get into tight ends on Tuesday a lot at least two weeks away guys. Two weeks away. So this this is just flying mess. It's going to be even more of a mess come September games actually start but. Jeez I mean, this is flying I can't believe I mean it was literally marched yesterday when this whole pandemic started, and now we're already were badly hit September. We're literally at September and when it September. There's two things that come to mind that is school semester in football and you know It's just the new change in season I. Guess You could say. But as far as you know news around the League, we're going to break that down real quick how `bout how `bout if you've been following the social media page which I know not allowed, you are said that already but list you've gotta follow the pace because there's some stuff that we talk about on the episode that tweet on twitter. And one of those things is Dez Bryant. Dez Bryant men number eighty eight one of my favorite players to ever suit up for the Dallas Cowboys I. Love Him I love his energy I. Love. Is Way he goes up to the football. But they would does is those days are behind him and that same bursts that same athleticism as saying, go up go get it factor that he had in two thousand fourteen is just not here anymore so Rarely. If he were designed with the team, his impact is very minimal, very minimal. I don't think he's GonNa Produce Anything Special Teams he's not going to do so if you can't do special teams, you're basically useless as a backup and that's what he is. He's not really started for any team in league unless there's a bunch of injuries but. If you're. GonNa sign him. You're pretty much GONNA ask stardom. And you can't use them on special teams 'cause he's not that good. He's thirty years old he's not what it used to be. So you're pretty much your handicapped if he signed him. So that's why nobody signing him. That's why the ULTIMO Ravens decided to pass on him unfortunately, which I totally saw coming I mean. I was really I was really open that they would bullet around him. Just for the fun of it you know why not bring him in a word as they were looking at Antonio Brown to me I've said this before Tonio Brown's careers over a he's never play again. No no team is going to bring him into their locker room. The only team that I can see is Tampa because the top brady, Tom Brady. Knows that Antonio Brown is really good player and he knows that he helped team. So he is campaigning for him pretty much. I would say on a daily basis if I had to guess because he saw Antonio Brown for those ten or so days he was in New England and said, wow, what a great player I need that guy on my team and he obviously Bell Jack was going to put up with him Bruce Arians he might because he's you know the chill players coach but Bruce knows Antonio. So the fact Bruce knows them basely's a like he's not going to bring him. He knows everything about knows either head case he knows how He's worked with him for over five years Pittsburgh so he doesn't need to know anything more doesn't want to deal with him. So that's why his over but I think does is going to be following the same path, but does is not. His career passes a lot different. He didn't really have all these. Just. You know big time. Investigations. Assaults in All this criminal activity pendant around his name as number. Add that. I. Mean. There is the incident where you know they said, he slapped mother back in two thousand ten or whatever the heck that was. But aside from that Ame-, he hasn't. He hasn't been in an criminal spotlight. That's why teams are still curious about him the saw I mean obviously the saint sign of two years ago. But he blew his knee out which really sucked are actually gillies and that's even worse Achilles at its the Achilles, heel? Yes. Why call it that it's really you're I, mean I'm not a doctor packages tell you from being an athlete myself that if you don't if you're Kelly's isn't right, then you can't run right and if you can't run right and you played receiver than you're useless so. As. He just never gonNA. Have that same speed that same knack in that same. Youthfulness they had to his game before So really it's really disappointment I. Hope. He gets one more shot I. Really WanNa see him back I n does not going to be the cowboys by really do WanNa see eighty eight back on the field for some team I was hoping it's false markets really good team a really good quarterback but. The only thing. The only hope you have for desert getting on team or I hope I should say is. Something similar happened with the Eagles where they just have fifteen thousand receivers get injured Nagata go brandon a guy but I mean, not eagles are not going to bring as Brian flip out happen but. Just, some some scenario like that where everybody gets hurt and you gotta go brain dead back Meteo reminds me to Yo was trying to get back in a game for a minute. Like he was just campaigning to get his way back in the League in, you know he was almost forty years old but it's still light man like that guy was in shaping he could still play as all faint player. and he didn't he tried a couple teams brought him in for workouts Seattle Brian for workout sign up for a couple days got rid of them. But it was it was interesting to see him and it was awesome CDs. But unfortunately, I think the dream is over for desert but I really wanted to go fact is something we've been. Added some jokes with social media. Because that's where does is really popular. Twitter does follow Dez on twitter. You guys need to start doing it but. Let's move onto out before we get into. Something about Cam. Why don't we just take a couple of minutes breakdown hard nuts episode to. Me? Oh. My Jesus. It's something that you got to really see the they really try to portray players, personalities and. What they do off the field wizard to nasty like Blah Blah Blah Blah Emmy saw the first episode hobby saw Jalen Ramsey. You know getting all feisty about. The media ask him about his contract he storms out the room which I I get. You know that's not as money I mean someone's personal money situation. You don't ask them about their regardless of even if that information is public so I kinda understand why he would do that but I mean jared Goff my God is this guy. Like this year franchise quarterback I, mean this the mini golf saying? Some Guy, the mini golf thing where you know sitting there with his buddies but but but the scene is personality I mean, this is not this guy does not scream later he does not scream franchise quarterback that guy is going to carry the team put him on a Balmy give me a break i. mean the reason I. Don't like Jared Goff and I've said this before is he's too soft. There's no other way to say he's tissue paper when he gets hit. IS MORALITY GOES DOWN Okay you see there's other quarterbacks. That's not the case when you look at Dak Prescott when he gets sacked. Brushed it off like nothing happened. When Ben Rothlisberger set is just right back. Jared Goff gets hit. His morale goes down and when you get multiple hits on your. that he becomes useless in the fourth quarter because he just doesn't have that vigor. That mental toughness that you need a quarterback. Bac Get the job done. And you know this whole. I mean. I guess he kinda fits. You Know California's boy in terms of me. Now Nellie being the quarterback but I mean Jared Goff is to me is not a quarterback out everyone on my team and definitely not a quarterback Katrina for. Also cool. It's also cool to see. McVeigh not play a little bit of. His wife in the first time and. He's playing basketball, the dog and all this met but I mean Sean the only thing that could really be Shawn Shawn. and. Shawn could get to create if he could try to do too much like pain. He's really the general manager that team when you think about it, I mean. So. I think he his personnel is not as adequate as it should be meaning he doesn't have that talent evaluation skill thirty whatever years old compared to someone like Bella jacker chemical or whatever. But there's there's something that just. Wish on. A he can get to a far ahead of himself. But I mean his brain, he just has a wonderful IQ you that his players pickup on. And you see them pick up. Really embrace it. You know they they're not looking Sean, mcvay Oslo thirty rolled white boy who is guy? They're thinking of this Guy Albert Einstein. And when you can reflect your knowledge of football to your players, players will believe and that's what you see with. McVeigh golf. You don't see that I mean I. See I see guys that are cool with him but I don't really see guys at just gravitate toward him. If you know what I mean and there's a huge difference between someone, you're cool with someone you gravitate towards to or is a huge difference and that will be the difference between winning or losing in the big time games. Is Just GonNa be a certain edge that you have to have. He just doesn't happen in my opinion, but in terms from a fantasy perspective, what I would I even consider jared goff. No. No Way. Okay. No brandin cooks their offensive line is so damn I mean come on Andrew Whitworth I'm big on I saw Whitworth on their he still in. I mean I've never I watched hard knocks. Over ten years ago he was on hard knocks. He was on the hard knocks over ten years ago and he's still here. He Still Joerg OPS blindside blocker. Yeah I don't think so I don't WanNa bit. The only person I want on team for my fantasy team is camakers because that's the way. He's an absolute tank, but still he's not going to be running. He's not going to have an ideal situation in front of him in terms of its interior office line is quarterback. The receivers Guber Cup is a great player. He just can't stay healthy Robert Woods he's up downhill have great games that will have great game. So I think is more consistency used with him, but I can't makers is the only one I take a shot in the tied into but he came on strong last year I don't know if he's going to pick it up. but that's all I got to say as far as the we didn't really. I mean they really feature much of the chargers I. Mean they kind showed they showed Anthony Lynn. They show you know a little bit of Dermot James at what he does and. They they showed a little bit of what they're about I. Think it was Martin focused on the rams and it's really focused on the new stadium and that's why they're doing it. They're it's all about the new stadium and I'm just glad that my favorite team gets to go into that new stadium. On September Whatever September Out of the day but I can't wait. I know it's in September I. Know US goes listeners you can't wait either because a lot of. Folks out. There are La Rams fans you are or la. chargers whatever or even Raiders Ravens got wants to look. I. Was the raiders were on this year actually better last year was just too much about Antonio Brown. But It's a big big big year for La Man China. It's too bad. The pandemics going on the stuff could be even. Blown out way bigger blown out of proportion but. It was crazy to see some of the things I saw I didn't I didn't expect to. See all this. You know social distance I mean the way these teams practice coronas pretty remarkable. I'll give them that this is pretty remarkable because. That'd be they're taking very serious like everything you touch something you wash your hands. You stay your distance you put your mask all like they're very strict about this. Then in hopes of you know having a fancy football season, it's looking good. I'm telling you looking good. So that's like hope for before against the break I wanted to briefly mention guys I said this as said this last week. Okay I said this last week. Please do not believe stories trying again. Are and what I mean this is. Guy X. is going to be looking. Fast as you same. You get the point everybody looks good at Training Camp I I'm pretty sure. I, said this last week I'm GonNa say to get. Everybody looks good in training camp. Why do they look at training camp? There's no contact. These guys aren't moving full game speed. This eighth, these the defensive backs they're not flying around like I mean the corners ever the safeties and I'm flying around like during the regular season game. They're playing. They're playing flag is tapping you when they're not tackling. If they were, there'd be different pursuits in SEC dairying. So when you hear all. I hear. A lot of fantasy fantasy. This is too fancy because. I hear a lot of fantasy football. Experts saying. I heard out of training camp. This guy is looking so good and this this I'm like why? So you think he's a better player because he's looking good at training camp. That makes no, sets. All right. If if you hear any of these arguments by any of these ESPN or antibody saying a player looks good in training camp than just click off the website don't even bother set up your draft there whenever you're doing because. That's how you know. They're looking at the things. We talked about look at the right things you look at your usage rates look at debt charts. You'll get a little bit of last year statistics and you try to project. You try to project so. Don't be trying to you know look at all of this guy's looking good Great. Some teams will try to release information about snap counts but again, how you like this preseason? Snap counter relevant. The depth chart is going to change twenty thousand times before the season starts. These put out a depth charge just to you know, get the media excited and it's going to change twenty thousand times so. I'm just telling you guys on saying hold the horses on training camp stories are. That's all you understand day. But let's get into the break. I'm really excited about this mock draft.

Back you're on Jesse fantasy football podcast just went over some news around the league. Some Fun. Johnny can't lies coming out but. I WANNA get into this masterpiece of a draft that I put together on Thursday so recording Friday. So yesterday, yesterday Thursday. Now we put together and it is. I can't think enough about this draft. So just to paint the picture, I had the tenth overall pick in twelve team. PBR SNAKE SO Most get that both we don't understand the snake one, two, three, four, five, six, seven nights I love twelve inside the tent. I'm going to have the third pick in the second round 'cause it's GonNa. Go Twelve, eleven ten, nine, eight, seven, you get the point so. With, ten pick I'm trying to get I try to explain this last podcast of how you attack it from the bottom snake. I'm trying to predict my two players. That I'm going to get and I'm trying to see who I should take I because I know that players not there. Now this is a little benefit that mostly guys will have. We did entire draft on zone. So. We were sitting around pig seven. And my basically my target was Kenyan Drake Okay I knew. Z. Ardley Kamera like they're not going to be there. Michael Thomas isn't going to be there Travis Kelsey was like the bailout option I doubt he was going to get picked there but I was like he's like a super bailout option Clyde we thought was going to go talk to him I. Believe he did there can read as well. So basically Kenyan drake is going to be my target miles. Sanders might be another target, but I think he went to pick before me. And then I look at Julio. Julio is still on the board unlike I don't WanNa pick wholly owned a first round. I talked about Julio less podcast. You Know Julio was a player that you definitely want to pick. As the thunderstorm shine as I mentioned his name but Julio is a player that you WANNA pick. Second round just do the fact that he doesn't have that same touchdown. You know he's not putting up to twelve touchdowns a year anymore guy's he only put up like four or five. So he's not really worth that first round pick anymore second round though he still still worth it because he soak. Player himself fantasy inside. He's so good. I mean. He does everything right as a receiver I. I don't know if you guys saw equipped NFL network me I think it was learned Fitzgerald. He was talking to Kala Murray he Larry Fitzgerald who I think is a top three receiver every play this game he said to Calamari. Guy Julio Airplane. They go. Julio's the best. I've ever seen. So the fact that he saying, I should say something but. I'm sitting there like man do I lock Julio because knowing me I'm not GonNa WanNa take a receivers and these next few picks I know I'm going to take running backs and tight it. So I'm not I'm not to get receiver. And at the same time man I, WanNa start off my drafts of the right back. I'm literally I just did a podcast going up about how you have to pick a running back I an applicant legged. If I pick Julio in a first round so As deciding. The person who is picking after me logged onto the zoo call. And he's literally you know bragging to boost in about Kenya Drake last season in this and this and that unlike man I better pick Doukas I know he's going to pick them so I'd say screwing Tenth overall we lock in. Kenya Andre. So. Couple of weeks ago by Davante Adams comes off the board. I think Nick Chunk comes off the board. Joe Mixing came off the board He's the guy I was talking about he mixing an Larkham off the board and guess who is still there. At the third overall pick in the second round Julio. Jones I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it. So I mean listen I already got my running back first Julio sitting there who I on my board I have the first round player. I think he's honestly one of his wealth easily one of the twelve best players in fantasy. That's not a debate for me. So the fact that he was sitting there in the second round scoop right up who've lost. So I to Kenyan Drake and Leo John's you're off to a pretty good start my mind that's a elite adding. To running back with elite potential. And a receiver WHO's already elite so start off pretty well. So the draft moves on guys like Aaron Jones are off the board Lamar comes off the Board Travis Kelsey comes off the board. George. Gidel comes off the board tyreek Hill comes off the board holiday off the board might give is off the Board Carson off the board. and I don't know missing anyone else. But. We get to route three, pig ten. So basically, the same spot was less time. And I'm thinking to myself. Okay now. I can't get a receipt I'm definitely one of these fixes definitely going to be running back. I was thinking too Martin Bax that's honestly at the time in between those pigs are maybe I just go to running backs I have Julio I didn't expect to get Julio. So I'm sitting there like. Already have Julia why not just take the two running backs but a lot of running backs come off the board in that in that something I expected to happen. So basically, my best running back. Available at the time was Todd Gurley and you you guys know me excuse me. It wasn't tiger early. It was leaving on bill. I skipped around the heads my bet but lake on bell is the best right back at the time and The second. Best running back that I had on my board was James Connor. So. I'm thinking to myself man. I don't want James Connor this year he's a committee. They drafted a guy they got any smell. I mean they got way too many mouths down there. I just don't want to deal with him on top of his health issues. So this is a player I wanted to stay away with completely that's why I had him pretty late the second when he could be a little bit higher but. I'm setting myself I don't want to. BE ON I do want But If I go five six later. I'M GONNA, have to pick James Connor gone off network. So I I'm thinking man. Is there any way? I can get lazy on somebody else. So I go down to my best receivers available my best tight end. My best tight end available was that Gertz and I don't think it. Third Round Pick Zakar. It's. It's just not worth it in my opinion I. don't I mean he was a third round player but I mean I with the trajectory he's on it's not like he's not getting no Saint Tarp. It's like he did the years won the Super Bowl. So I'm just like, no. And my best receiver on the board. Was My pick AJ Brown. And as a Guy I hadn't thirties, he was ranked. I think thirty, four, thirty three on the ESPN board. But I had them in the early thirties and that's what we were sitting. And out sitting there going you know. Since the two best players on my draft board are two running backs while I locked the receiver up in just get one of those two running backs next. Now, this could come back to bite if. If both lay on bill and James Connor. Pick then your strategies totally went down the toilet but. If you look at the project, the rankings James Connor wasn't even projected to be going in the next five picks lay on bell wasn't either. So thinking there's a pretty good shot and that's what I talk about using consensus board to your advantage. I'm looking at the consensus board I see they're not even projected our next five six one of the guys on autographs already know it is going to be it's going to be the player who's at the top of the consensus board. So you could easily calculate who's going to be there just off projection and I'm thinking man. There's a good shot. One of those guys are going to be there. So I locked up Aj even though mean can you guys imagine is big two receivers with my first three picks. But guess what it all worked out because not only with James Connor sitting there lady on bell was sitting there. So we went back to back AJ Brown and scooped up later on, and that's when I knew we were having a good draft So I already got my two running backs in two receivers set. I honestly was thinking I was going to have to get a mediocre wide receiver to, but the fact you got AJ. Brown up who don't good we're doing. Good. So. Going into the next round art. Now, tight end is something I wanNA consider I. Don't know if there's going to be any tight ends. Lo and behold we skipped through. So guys come off the board like `They Lynn? girly. Johnson came out the board Devon Single Terry's off the Board Lamar at Homes Zach Ertz Mark Andrews. And we're sitting there. And we'll fast forward to fifth pick. And my fifth round pick I'm sitting there I have. My Buddy Eric who's picking the person did the board with on twitter page He's picking the pick after me. So I'm trying to think of what he's going to do knowing him 'cause we talk fantasy hours upon hours. So we kind of know who each other favorites are. You Know Dummy And Non Eric He loves balance. He loves making sure he has a tight end on like I got to pick a tight end right here. So I go to my list and I go wait a second Dr Waller hasn't been picked yet. And this is the fifth route. And I scroll down in. He's at number seventy on the ESPN board I'm like are you kidding me and I know Eric sank looking at him to like let's lock his ass off and both fifth pig their waller and waller is a player that a lot of people have actually. I've been very eye on, but some people back saying his volume numbers are going to go down because added receivers on the outside. I don't see that if I gotta be honest with you I actually see his touchdowns going up, which is a huge beneficial that make up for his yards. This targets will probably go down a little bit but I mean he had twelve hundred yards last year. That's insane. So if he goes down from twelve hundred, now eight, hundred, nine hundred but adds more touchdowns as a very productive tighter one. So locked him up and my best player on the board at that. I should said. My Best Player on the board was ready mustard. And branded. This was a PR league. But if I was thinking to myself man, we get most deflects. That's good. Because regime most my penis thousand yard rusher this year. So that's exactly what you want is not only your flex regard be to in your RV want so I get an one thousand yard rushers might flex and their waller. Were I. I should start maybe becoming a GM in the NFL. Help some other teams out but. It worked out perfectly football gods are the football guys shine on me waller with the fifth round pick waited Ramos sent right there in the six round scoop them right up. So s basically I built my core with my six six. I did the balance. I basically did a balanced strategy. I wait running back than receiver then I got my second receiver I could waited. and. Then I picked up beyond belt my second running back. Picked up Ricky Moser is my third running back and got my tight end. So I have three running backs, two receivers, Titan, which is awesome. If I wanted to go robust running back, upgrade my running backs. Probably would have still picked drake because he was the best player Ville Amuse the best running back available in the first round. If I didn't WANNA pick coolio I could have picked Aaron Jones by his Aaron Jones. This is what I was thinking at the time. I do lay down was going to be there later because he's way too low. If I sent this as my bounceback Kennedy, he's way too low in the consensus ranking so. I'm saying is there these are questions you have to ask yourself during draft? Is Aaron Jones going to be that much better than Lamy on belt I didn't think. So that's why I decided to pass on Aaron Jones. When I had AJ Brownsville. I sat there and said. James Connor. Go be that much better. So you know I mean. You have to ask yourself questions like the at assume the player you miss out on just assume that everything goes wrong free during the draft or I always have like five bailout options. Don't be the guy sitting in a locked in on one player than one pick before you the player goes and you're scrambling at your when you're on the class that's not what you WanNa. Do you WanNa have like four or five bailout options and just assume? That everybody's going to be gone. Just assume that because when they're not gone. It's going to give you a lot more options than you'll be sitting there. Oh, now he's here. He's here. Then you do business a lot more functioning but if you're sitting there locked in on one guy, you're almost impossible to recover when your clock. So that's what I was able to do with the first six picks Something that that was basically that's what I wanted to go over. But while some of the rest of the draft, why had it the seventh round I decided to select? Let me pull up at Home I. God I can't believe I. Forgot I think it was either Dobbins I know I, picked up Dobbins as either. Dobbins are receiver that I went in the seventh round I laid it on a quarterback, which is something that I probably will do in my other draft is well, just due to the fact that. Again there's there's thirty two starting quarterbacks is okay to wait on. Yes I went dobbins in the in the eighth round I. Think there the other running back taken was What's his name acres went off the board I was looking at acres. He went off the board. Peterson I was thinking to take him Peterson Let me take the rookie with upside because I think once Dobbin starts he's not going to be coming back out of that lot of. Then, the next pick basically at this point, I'm just looking for guys with higher upside Jamison crowder, he someone that. Doesn't get a lot doesn't touchdowns, but he's GonNa get a lot of targets on a lot of yards. So that's high upside. He's projected to have eleven and a half points week one, which is that's better than some starters Equal Heart. Deck. Is Nothing but upside twenty, two year old five star crew phenomenal player for the chiefs last year tyree kill goes down. That's a number. One target on everybody's traits is Michael Hartmann. So you guys I would I would take me cool in the tenth eleventh round in just on the bench if you can't because that's a player even if he doesn't even tire retail Sammy Watkins, they all stay healthy for sixteen games he still get six, seven, hundred yards and. Two touchdowns. Saad. Still think is productive player. and. Then we went with Matt Stafford at quarterback. He'll is a rogers was there too. I could have picked Rogers on. Rogers he's GonNa play well due to the fact that he's got Jordan love up is but but I think Stafford is really looking for that bounceback years. It was just injuries that was his problem I thought he was a great doing outstanding last year when he was healthy. So. I went in I like Big Ben. Up later I mean that he's not really that much of an insurance policy but still I wanted to get it back up then took Damian Harris. and. If you guys Malysz excuse asset if you guys listening I mentioned last pockets how he was he was asleep art and nobody was really talking him. I mean now I think his name is starting in. China. I. Mean People Understand. That Saudi Michelle is pretty much done. I mean his injuries are so overwhelming signing funny Amar Miller went out I. mean the Patriots have nobody at running back with Damian Harris, and this is not the Tom Brady offense guys. I mean James, White Rexburg like those guys aren't going to be as featured as much as they used to be. Those aren't Tom. Those are Tom Brady running-backs. This is Kamdoum. Offense where they're going to run the football and. They Harris is going to be far that definitely guy you want to scoop up in the twelfth thirteenth around nobody's going to be talking about him. I think his name's GonNa Stephanie Start to pick up traction. So right now, you can scoop them up twelfth thirteenth round, but it might come to you might have to up the eighth later on down the line hopefully. Hopefully. He stay silent so I could just. Pick them up in every single league so Moving on I finished up with Blake Darwin. I mean obviously got get blinked right have been talking about him for a while and then my final pick was brain ICU stoked to get him because gotta talked about this last podcast Jalen hurts. He's out acl done for the year deebo Samuel. This is the second injury in two years. Why not take a kid who was picked in the first round by great offensive coach with a plan this is a player you want on your team guys. I know he's a rookie, but once they get this given the game good shot he ain't coming out. There's a lot of guys on my team that they may be rookies but once they get in the game, they're not coming back out because they're coach is going to. Play. and. It's GonNa take a while this year because a lot of veterans are going to be as I've mentioned that earlier to it's GonNa be veteran favored. So it's GonNa. Take a while for these rookies get on the field but once injuries start happening there's no other choice so. That's why you still take a shot on some guys with high upside and guys who have a chance to start early that's the case but that was the entire draft. I felt it was great ape plus ten additon ten looking at some teams around the League mean I had one team monthly. he might Tom. This is how you don't do a draft. He went round my toss. Okay. He went round to homes. He went Odell in round three you're done. Do come on. That's your team. Mike Thomas Odell Pat. That's not winning and fantasy that might win if you put that on a real football field. Yeah. You my scares some people with that. But fantasy come on, give me a break but anyway, I'll posted up on social media page G. M. C. Underscore F-, football took that page out but that's all I. got for the draft we're GonNa take a break we'll be back we're GONNA get into some players that. They have just been miss spotted on the consensus rankings. There's a handful players that I wanNA talk about that are just being miss spotted on rankings not not too high, not too low I. mean there's some players will break it down. We'll break down who's to high who low next segment but stick around because we're going to get into wide receivers in a final segment. I top ten receivers will break them down which guys you want draft early, which guys you should coming right up after the break.

Back, you're on the GMC fantasy football podcast just over my draft that I completed yesterday in one of my fantasy leagues got another draft coming up in a couple of weeks right before season starts sexually time like because then all the injuries final cuts everything is all secured debt charts are pretty much secured for the most part and That's where you can really start project clearly where these guys are going to go but. Let's get into our ahead of I haven't list of about five players. That I feel are just misplaced in the consensus ranking Sir not some are too high summer too low but I just I just don't think they're in the right spot and I'm GonNa tell you why I don't think they're in the right spot. So I'm going to start off number one with Clyde Edwards. And with Clyde. Here's the thing. The consensus including myself I mean it's hard. It's easy to look at this look at Clyde and say well. Absolutely, well, great player and better than a great player. He's a high octane offense. So when they see them them in the chiefs offense what they're gonNA, do automatically overdraft. And the thing you have to understand about the chiefs offense is at Andy. Reid who I've seen for. It seems like twenty years in Philadelphia. He likes to spread the ball around. Our as he's not going to be forced feeding Clyde or force-feeding tyreek or Travis, he wants to use everybody in an equal amount possible. He even wants to get the backups in guys like me go hardman who I talked about and Sammy Watkins. They want those guys. To, basically touch the ball minimum three times a game he everybody involved because his philosophy is if I get everybody tussle defense defensive coordinator just GONNA lose their mind go clueless 'cause there's too many people to come. And that philosophy works when you have multiple talented weapons. So when you have multiple good receivers and running back like lied and at Mahomes and etcetera that's GonNa work but. When you don't have the, it's not a good strategy couch trying to do that years ago. Didn't work out too well and got our game but Clyde, he was ranked. In my Monte was ranked. Or mock my actual draft ESPN had at. Eight. I think eight or nine, and I've seen him do mock draft. I've seen them as high as five and under discussion like this Clyde Edwards layer is not the running back. The YOU WANNA draft I. L Like a five overall and build your team around. He's running back you I'd say is an rb to he'd be very good. As an rb three, it's almost impossible considering his stock but as to. If you if there's any way, you can get him to I. Get him the reason I don't beat as a one. Is because the one has to be your engine. The one has to be the guy's GONNA show. He's GonNa get a hundred yards. All purpose every Sunday. That's basically what you want from your one and I don't know if it's going to get that every. Sunday. Now, there's a chance he could get. All purposes 'cause they're gonNA I feel like they're going to get him involved so much receiving but he's such a boomer bus prospect he such a boomer bus prospect because we've seen the rotation with these chiefs backs we've seen you know Andy. Reid not really Mike enforce the guys and the fact that he's a rookie you know he's a rookie without a off season. So those things you have to consider now that's not saying. That's not saying I don't like the player I don't like the player that high is what I'm saying where I'd have collide Clyde is like fifteen. Okay high or too. That's where I. Think he is. You know just because he's a rookie but there's no way in heck. No way in Heck I? Don't see. Clyde is a top five running back just not for me. Now let's move into this next name that is in the same draft class as Clyde, but he's nowhere near Clyde and I think it's ridiculous and that's my man in Indianapolis Jonathan Taylor now. Jonathan Taylor. was. Basically A. Player who at Wisconsin was. Incredible player he's incredible WanNa. Walker were twice the only two other people to win the Walker twice or to my favorite players did der McFadden? Ricky Williams. The. Intensity the physical to miss his game the way just as a workhorse that put short-term he is a workforce standard. You better get this guy under teen. Okay. Because when you have a Ryan back him behind the colts offensive line full, that's a lot of points at yards. So Standard I absolutely I make this guy, my rb to his standard. That's how I am and PBR I'd lean more towards him as deflects, but this guy is a starter and he's not even ranked as a starting. On the ESPN board, he was ranked fifty seven. In the mock that I did fifty seven. There's no way fifty, six players about an. Okay. This is not there's no way. There's no way. Fifty six players are going to be more productive than him. This year. Are Now here's why they have Look. Two reasons number one. He had injury concerns in college. People don't know that but he did get her and I. Think it was a sophomore year he missed time and. They're saying that's the reason that he didn't really go in a first round like he should have. You know if you look at his numbers eighteen yards, I mean that's running backs on do that in college every day at. Wisconsin at level. That is so the fact that he's getting that much. Should've made my first round pick it didn't the colts traded up in the second round against him? So. That's the injuries they're concerned about. But I think they're real concerned committee. They think that Franks go into this tango. Okay. I gotta get nine on third down some reception touches I gotta get Marlon Mac the bulletin times a game, and that will feed Taylor in the late game if we're up. And I just don't think the early on they're gonNA do that but. I think there's GonNa be a game where the culture just not. They're not belonging somebody out who knows how good they'll be without be a game somewhere along early in the year where they're just they're up by. Two touchdowns. Three touchdowns late in game. And they're gonNA Taylor in the game because they're going to say this time Kim Simone and Nc Wednesday touches that rock. Frank Rights GonNA. Be Amazed. And he's not going to take him out for more than. And Naim Heinz I could still see him fighting his way on the field trying to take snaps buying is doesn't run like Taylor, he's nowhere near built like Jonathan Taylor. The thing the ninth highest could do better is maybe a little bit better pass pro just do the experience and he's definitely better in receiving. I'll give him that but. Once they once Jonathan Taylor Zabel showcases skills as. A receiver. I think that'll go out the window because he can't do that too. He's not as good as, but he could do that and. He can learn how to pass pro block. And Philibert. Make sure he learns sexy doesn't he's not on the field. So data diller way too low opinion he's fifty seven on the ESPN board he should be in the thirties or forties he's a starting player and Stein, should start in fantasy once he starts in real life. So make sure you nabbed that guy late I say those students back to back because these are the two running backs that were drafted. Ten spots apart yet clyde were two layers all the way up in the top five. John Taylor. Down in a fifty cent makes absolutely no sense that just shows. That's my point to you guys. The consensus is not right. I that's why you need to do your own homework and your on research because there's no, there's no logic behind. Separating those two that far apart. So another today really want to go to now the third name I'm getting to is another rookie that will move into a couple of veterans Michael Pittman Junior. Saint Team Indianapolis Colts figure we segue into him talking about the colts. Now when you look at the goals receiving core, you got thirty T. Y. Hilton and who else. You can't name anybody else because there is no one. I mean, you have Paris Campbell who they drafted last year curse me is just a Ohio state. Athletic Kid Fronts. Well, that's why he got the he's not to meet and he's not a player. He doesn't offer a lot of great route running. It doesn't offer anything physical guys like barely hundred pounds so I don't think he's. Going to be competition for Michael Pittman in terms of stealing snaps Michael, worship be third receiver and I think an easily pass Paris Campbell to be the number two receiver, and then once ty gets hurt because it's been happening for the past three years, it'll be the number one receiver. Oh that happened quick but as football stuff like that happens quick and that can happen in one week so. Michael Edmund Junior is not even at draftable player according to ESPN. He's all the way down. They just say he's pretty much stuck in the back after the depth chart. This is definitely draftable Blair. If he if he if there's a chance, he could be the wide receiver one on the team. He's definitely draft players I draft him. Twelfth Thirteenth Round Him on your bench. He's one of those bench dashers. You definitely want to stash this guy because even if you don't use them yourself and he does, well, you use them as a trade darker guys. You know always thinking that's why you try to get guys with high upside on the bench because maybe they don't start for you but they become great trae targets and if you could trade guys on the bench for guys, you're starting off man, you're doing good job drafting and trade you're doing a good job. So Michael Pittman very high upside from USC to were Juju is not you know I gotTa Make Fun of that because these guys are all flashy this matt on social media, but USC will have ready to play in the pros. That's something I can't knock you for USC they'll they get these kids ready to play in the pros so I don't expect the transition for Edna Be. Seamless bide on expected to be difficult at the same time. So look for this guy picked them up in the twelfth thirteenth around way too low. Now. One running back. I'm high on one running back down low on. Let's get into the running back on high on. That is my man David. Johnson. Now say my mandated Johnson because. He wanted me a league in two thousand sixteen. Why went twelve and won the championship undefeated season. It was him Lesean McCoy I had. Does on my team, my head Jordan Reed on my team my head drew brees on my team just ridiculous season. But he was the forefront of that team. He had over two thousand purpose yards. He was ridiculous on the receiving game on screens. He was awesome running on a just a do it all player and then. Back to back injuries in he got shipped at Arizona. So He's basically sitting at Houston new opportunity. Houston finally got rid of Carlos, Hyde who couldn't play and brought him in. At this is a new facility for David Johnson and I think he's GonNa make amends a bit Will he returned to that two thousand years now but he is going to have. At least fifteen, hundred all purpose. I. Am very confident that the show Watson will get him involved in receiving. He'll ask the ball on receiving because this could do damage on the open field. I'm also confident that they're going to run with him. are once they see a healthy David Johnson there you bill O'Brien's GonNa use him in the offense. There's no doubt about it. All right. There's no de'andre. Hopkins there's no. So the off, really your best weapon on offense on paper is David Johnson. Think about on paper. Your best weapon on offense is David Johnson, of course, aside from. Watson himself but. Still, when you have a running back like that, going to a new opportunity, a new picture for him somewhere where you know. He can mentally. Activates to the situation he's in very well, just due the fact that he has a he has a team that invested in the offensive line on like the cardinals they invested in a good quarterback, their head coaches I like everyone else hates him I get it but. They can make. That situation work and I, think if David David Johnson involved in receiving like they like Arizona did early on. Met. That's a player. You WanNA targeted fantasy. He'd be a great flex option and I think he's easily running back to and according to ESPN. He's of He's touching at the fifties I think he's a late forty I gotta check but that's a thirty two even at twenty. Overall he's basically what lady on. What everyone thinks is going to do last year. I think he David. Johnson might do this year. All right. How everyone saw coming back off the years rest new system this this and this. I mean, he just didn't work out. Johnson he's coming back healthy new system. I think this is GonNa work out. So keep an eye out for him. And My last guy is the guy that actually don't like the Guy I think is too high and that's Melvin Gordon Melvin Gordon. On ESPN board set. These at six, fifty nine. The nine or sixty. He's basically rb three Melvin. Gordon and not even address player. They do not pick Melva Gordon. Do not pick. Mountain Gordon not. Always Melvin Coordinating Committee Melvin Gordon isn't shape guys. Are If, there's if there's reports that you should pay attention to rather than the reports, all this guys wide open this guy's looking like you sample. Look at the reports whether these guys are shape Melva Gorz not in shape I read a report on the last episode he's having trouble dealing with out to. Are Now I know that some that you can't control but. You're a professional athlete you're telling me you're having trouble breathing. Wherever training in the Aussies March you in Denver off season training. So, don't give me any of this stuff that means you're not in shape dude you're not committed had showed last year with the chargers. He wasn't all that good and I hold out his career to spend on downward spiral stay far far away from Gordon. Handfuls of running backs if I mean the fact that Espn Things Melvin Gordon better running back then John Taylor should. Pretty much some update consensus as a whole. Okay. There's no way in heck. That's even remotely possible. So. Those are five players that I really WANNA get into. The I just don't think right at all I made my passion arguments for them and I. Hope You guys use that information correctly. But. Coming up final segment, we're going to get into top ten receivers where these receivers go who, I. Think's the best and who should draft coming up next. This job built around the women of MMA from the UFC to the extreme case fighting we got the fights cover. The golden state media concepts, women's MMA podcast. The latest news of upcoming flights discussions of previous matches join us as we talked to in about the biggest names women's mixed martial arts past present and future. When it's the women's fight game, you know to listen to the Golden State media concept's women's MMA podcast. All right back on the GMC fantasy football pockets. Final segment, we are going to get into my top ten receivers. Last podcast Atop San run bags of previous. I did top ten quarterbacks. Now, we're GONNA do the receivers and other receivers in the most intriguing position in my opinion, just due to the fact that. It's so arbitrary everybody has their preferences. Everybody loves someone that more than they should and it's an easy position to fall in love with mean. Since the Flash, IT'S TO'S SHADOW CINCO. It's you know it's it's the wide receivers. Anyway let's get into wasting time get into list now. Brinson I had to put my guy that drafted yesterday and that's Aj Brow. Now I could have put a lot of guys. A lot of guys at length like, DJ. Moratorium Inglorious. The top ten but. Aj Brown is easily the best nice. Not Really Asleep but I think he is because people don't talk about him enough. I mean this is a rookie receiver who had twelve hundred yards rushing offense. Okay, that's that's all you need to. Not. He's a rookie he was a rookie receiver. All, right. In a rushing offense and he had twelve hundred yards are he's already the number he's second year going to be his second year and he's already the number one. There's no. If this guy if that guy no, he is the number one there's nobody else it's not corey. David are. They found out last year that Gory David stinks they found that out earlier but if he can't play Aj can't. That's why they picked some. So Aj. Brown easily top ten receive. I think. He can even get better on those numbers he had last year and his numbers were outstanding last year. They were outstanding. So the fact that he can get even better. Results with those numbers I think speaks him I, mean, this is a player that if you can get as your wide receiver to like I, did yesterday you're in good shape. That's where targeting round for round if he's there around five to scoop them up no hesitation but take a look at this guy he's one of my favorite and I think he deserves a spot on the top ten. Number Nine, we're GONNA do De'andre Aachen's now if this were two years ago, he'd be in the top three. Now, the reason happens is in number nine. Again Committee. And I know we're not talking backs but for receivers you Larry Pistol there. All right. I know Larry Francis. ageless. But Still Larry Fits is there and he's going to he don't. He's not there to not guess the bulk guys. Are He's going to be on the field. He's a starter. He's GonNa play every down guest the ball now healthy Andre in a sense because De'andre is not gonNA face that many double teams as he used to. Now that really helped the audrey. But however, the cardinals don't have the pass protection the especially with Colin Murray they don't have the time to be sent back on a for five seconds like at Mahomes does deepal. Fast offense they're going to move murray out as much as possible role mount wherever it the ball out quick and try to basically get budget elite route runners I think Hopkins. He's a do it. All player has hard pass on a first round pick I know they the Detroit, but you have him yet fits and you also have Christian. Kirk. Of Christian Kirk was a player that if you know has never traded there, he would have been the sleeper he would been a guy everybody was talking about now people don't like her. Can I agree because of Hopkins being there he basically goes back to the third wide receiver position, which is still a starting position you're still going to be on the field but. The same time it's for fantasy. You're looking for number one. You're not looking for guys who were going to be the third so I've been. I have zero problems with this game. I have problems with his usage rate. Is He still top ten? Yes. Because I think he can still have say numerically twelve to thirteen hundred yards maybe ten touchdowns in at stop ten. That's that could be top five but I just worry about how many targets he's GonNa get. relationship with new quarterback Colin Murray is not the Shawn Watson. So as something to look after, but will put Hopkins Number Nine number eight tie retail. Now, for talking real life, he'd be way higher but tyree recalls number eight for reasons. Number one he's has health injuries. Aren't he has health problems last year it was a brief stint was only. Was An ankle in early season for a few weeks, and then he came back play the rest of the year. Fine. But you have the problems and he also off the field problems guys are. This guy was involved in a pretty big domestic violence case last year I know the NFL swept under the rug what they do with every other domestic violence case but still this is a player who has this red. Flags. Are being a tyreek Hill fancy owner last year you loved him when he was healthy but you had. This. Feeling inside that you better be ready not there. And you really shouldn't have that feeling with all your players but him especially, I've made sure I had a two to three I jenny Golic Day antilock it's sitting. So if anything happens, we swap him out, put them in but still I mean tyreek Hill is just a player that. I love you. You'll everybody would love but. He's not reliable in terms of your number one fantasy receiver that's just going to be. The guy that is there every game? GonNa make get ten points a game. Or going to produce ten points a game I should say. And you don't have to worry about. or off the field that's basically what you want. Kill is seventy five percent of what I just described. Now I knew I was getting a sixteen game tyree kill diary can be it's up to be probably number two on this list I even put him above Julio. Just because he's so dynamic, he could he's a deep threat. If he catches one deep ball, it's for a touchdown. You Win you're gay. So he's way too dynamic to leap outside the top ten but a little too many red flags put him inside the top five. So I think number eight spot for him number seven can go. All right and I've talked about Kennedy Golladay raved about him in the past. This is an outstanding player. He smooth a good route runner his high catch point is outstanding and I I just love his game. I also love his quarterback that's finally coming back healthy. Shadow. Matt Stafford at Matt Stafford stays healthy. Out. Kennedy Gol Day's GonNa have some big time games and big time UH statistics are athletic statistics for big time last year. I mean there's some games he caught three passes for one hundred, forty yards. Like guys rainy Moss's doing that I mean, that's that's rare rare deep throat ability to be able to do something like that and some of these plays if you watch him in his yards after catch. He's a big body guy. So he has the ability to get yards after catch and he can go in the red zone and be a threat there, which is going to help a lot in terms of fantasy point. So I think when Golladay the only problem people are GonNa say Oh Golladay was inconsistent. He was up and down. Yeah. Hemi he has quarterbacks were you know? They had Jeff Driscoll in and they had what's his name David Blow In a quarterback. David Blow. God He's good enough in the NFL so. The fact course you don't have consistency issues if they're swapping quarterbacks every week I mean. You have to you'd have to assume that Stafford isn't going to play sixteen games this year just because it's been. It's been two years in a row that he's had health problems so. You have to factor that in. But at the same time we're talking about Golladay I mean, he still had one hundred yard games without him and I think if he has with him, he'll be a top five receiver. So I think seven zero spot for number six we're going to put Adam sealant now salen the reason I. Love This Year High, volume? Kirk cousins doesn't know any of those other receivers aside from Adam feeling and feelings it very quarterback for receiver elite route runner he's great in and out. Greatness Lot so he'll get open over the middle where the quarterback favorite spot is and with kirk cousins who's not really a guy who's GonNa he is more of a West Coast guy you. Throw. Some intermediate short passes before he looks at a deep ball This is the guy, this perfect form and you saw the comedy work well, last year for the brief stamp before sailing went down the injury I, think feeling this year he's coming back with. A lot of determination and prove himself and. Show that he's at number one. I. Know They drafted just just Jefferson I think he's they're projected to I'll think Jefferson is going to be ready early on I. Think they're bringing them up too early but they got have no choice considering the defined digs do I think Stefan base presents takes away from feeling? Yes. Do I think it's going to perceive more double teams this year on some occasions? Yes but Phelan's targets in usage is going to be absolutely through the roof I mean they have nobody else on that team Nobody else on that team I mean, they have Dowden Cuckoo's has injury problems but in terms of receiving they have Phelan that's about it. I can't name any other receiver on that team. So I love target share. The boat evasion bounce back this season after being hurt last year you know going in China, get another payday I think the. Prime prime candidates do well this year I think number is correct spot for him. Now five is going to get interesting. Odd Number. Five or number four back back because they both play on the same team and you can guest Chris Godwin and Mike, and is now going to put my games at Fort. Just, due to the fact that Evans has way more consistency and play making ability over the years than Godwin. Does Godwin. Last year was kind of his breakout year. This year is hoping to continue with Brady but when you look at it overall. Could got when beans hi. Yes There's definitely a chance Scott when could be too hot but I mean. Man's guys just got a lot of ability. He's fast. He can get in and out great like I've seen he's a great deep threat as well, and he's GonNa make with though teams going might get now. The thing with my guidance is You know he's got the double teams but he also got her. So this is GONNA be his seventh year league already. Devon's because if Evans it gets hurt I mean Goblin stock is Oh, my goodness I mean he's the number one receiver and he's already a good player. So it'd be a great player to have if Evans goes down but you know what? I'm saying could happen to got one now. Obviously. The biggest factor for both of these guys is the fact that Tom Brady court. Now Brady. To be honest and a fantasy perspective, it might not work out for him because Brady's GonNa go more for the check. Now he's GonNa. Go more for the short or intermediate. He's not James Winston, where he doesn't care if he turns the ball of Brady cares returns the ball or he's not going to turn the ball over James doesn't care. So James Civil throw a fifty are passive. He sees the safety he doesn't care, and there's Todd's regard what's going to catch it. And about the other three times, it's going to get intercepted. Brady's not gonNA take those shots. He'll take those shots occasionally, but he's not gonNA take those shots regularly so That's something I think Godwin comes down a little bit his numbers but it's again the offense way to dynamic with the quarterback. He has to leave him outside the top five. Evans. Just inconsistent playmaker over the years everywhere he's got he's produced no matter what the quarterback no matter. I mean he was catching fifteen hundred yards from Johnny Manziel. All right. In college she basically made Johnny Menzel Look Good College that's a lot of people don't know but. It doesn't matter who is quarterback is I'm very confident. He'll producer vs healthy. So He's definitely worthy of the number four number three to wrap this list up is Davante. Adams. devante. He's got a similar situation theline except I think he's even better than feeling he's younger he's more explosive and he did have his injuries problems last year. Although they were brief I thought he's able to overcome them. and this is GONNA BE A. Big? Year for Devante think he really wants to. Go Out, get that number. One money eventually has gone away his contracts of, but I know it's coming up soon. See just the design, the League a four year extension of three years ago I'd say so it's coming up soon. and. Now be the number one receiver in Green Bay. He's got a chance to prove himself not only rogers, but he's gotta prove himself to stick around with maybe Jordan So. I love his game I think he's developed into a great player over time. I remember him cook in the cowboys as a rookie in the playoff game and I. Just I love his upside I think easily desert. If he stays healthy, he's easily top five receiver and with Roger. quarterback he's been with over five years. Not a lacking gone. So some list will go number two, Julio Jones I kinda went on a random earlier. Just does everything right a player that I mean my God it's hard to go against him. I mean I can't put anybody above Julio except for Michael. Thomas. That number one because Michael. Thomas had a hundred fifty one, hundred, fifty receptions last year. That is insane. That's insane. Okay. That's not going to happen again but the fact that he had a hundred fifty receptions on over one hundred, fifty target damn. Your two hundred targets are you kidding me? I mean we talk about usage a lot guys that is a number one by foreign away in usage. That's the guy you want to have on your team. There's going to get to a point in the first round where you might have to take. Michael. Thomas. I in not going to be disappointed, but you're not going to have the running back. So as the downside, but as far as Michael Thompson game goes. Great situation, great player don't have any doubts about him. Same with Julio could be injury concerns. The fact that he's not getting in the red zone of is still he does all the little things right as hard to take anybody above. So to recap the list number ten, Aj Brown number ninety, Audrey Hopkins Number Eight tyreek Hill number seven can go. Day Number six, Adam Phelan four or five. Chris God. When Fort Mike Evans Three Davante Adams to Julio in one Michael Thomas Those are your top ten receivers from your boy and at Wineman and folks that is all this week on the GMC fantasy football podcast.

3 and Out - Belichick Bounce Back; Free Agency Cash; QB Market Impact; Brees' SNF Future; FA Day 1 Wrap Up; Mailbag

"Good afternoon would you like to try a free sample of our double fudge brownie. Oh sure That's very good. I'll just take one more just to be sure. Yep still very good. Some things never change like never being able to take just one free sample and gyco saving folks. Lots of money on their car insurance Macadamia nut. I taste you. Take one more sir. I thought so fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. I'm kerry champion the host of a brand new podcast naked with carrie. Champion on the black effect podcast network. I'll be asking some of the greatest and sports and entertainment to remove the veil good naked being naked on this podcast means describing life altering events and circumstances that helped shape who the person you love has essentially become the naked. Podcast is available beginning march. Twenty second on the iheartradio app apple. Podcast or ever. You get your podcast. Happy free agency to my people. What is going off everybody. Three podcast middlekauff lot going on listeners. Dive right into it. All some thoughts on bella. Check some dots on just free agency in general. The league clearly does not have an economic issue quarterbacks. None of them as of recording this russell wilson to sean. Sam darnold jimmy garoppolo. None of these guys have moved yet by the time you're listening. Maybe we got a blockbuster but the moment one of those guys changed teams. That will immediately trump every move. There was made on monday or tuesday of free agency. Go through a couple of the moves that really stood out to me. I'll probably do a bigger version of that come later this week. We'll just attack everything. Now give my opinion on the majority of things but everything so fluid and moving so fast right now that it's just it's hard to keep up. It was pretty crazy. Let's just be honest. it was nuts. I didn't expect it to be fast and furious but holy moly could be an nfl player. Got a lot of cash coming your way and subscribe to the pot three podcast if you listen on collins feet. I greatly appreciate that to subscribe to three now. Podcast separate feet helps with the business selling of the pod. I'm going to do a middlekauff mail back. I'll do a big one on friday. So shoot me your instagram questions at john. Middlekauff is the instagram handle. And we'll go from there today. I'm just just talking football talking a little ball talking transactions and we'll just dive have a good time. Let's dive into belichick and i would say the biggest thing that's changed for me over the past decade since when i first got into the league to where i'm at now is looking at football much differently and if you've listened this podcast you know it's a it's a very business. Money heavy sports podcast. We talk a lot about the business angles of everything. Because the one thing i've learned is That's all that matters when it comes to the stuff. Obviously you want your teams to win. Team signed good players. You want good coaches that all matters but the reason this stuff exists is because of television because of the money they can make in the growing business aspects of sport. Right in the sport of football. Which is the biggest in our country. It's the reason that this goes on. The national football league to get games to throw them on. Television now potentially on amazon for thursday night and make huge cash. It is a television show. That is what the nfl is. It's a three hundred sixty five year television show and this this week is a huge part of the television show. Even though nothing is actually happening on television right beside tweets of schefter and wrap this guy. Sign this guy signed. There's no games no workouts. Nothing actually taking place beside a guy going to a different team for a lot of money. The television show truly takes place sixteen seventeen weeks a year and the play offs and because of the amount of people that watch the nfl right now. It's the number one television show in america football college. Football's massive to two huge television show. We talked about the coaches talk about players talking about. Who's doing well. Who's doing shitty. we love it. Obviously i do this. I talk about for living but the key to have a great entertainment product whether it's a television show whether it's movie something you cannot do without is having a great villain and when i think about some of my favorite movies my dad loved a few good men. I love the movie too. It's a fantastic movie. The first thing you think about when you think about a few good men is not tom. Cruise is not demi moore it jack. You can't handle the truth. He was an elite villain in that movie. It doesn't get any better so one of the bigger movies. The last couple of decades the dark knight heath ledger became a cultural icon. First performance in the movie he was a bad guy he was the villain like part of having a great movie is having good villains. You want someone to root for and you want someone to root against think about other sports. Who's the big bad wolf and the villain in baseball. It's the new york yankees college basketball forever. it was duke. It is very very important to not. Just have someone to root for but someone to root against in for a long period really the last twenty years brady and belichick worthy the nfl villains right. They want all the superbowls. They're winning all these divisions they were kicking. Everyone's ass if you're a steeler fan if you're a colts fan if you're a miami dolphins fan if you're a jets fan if you're a cheese fan if whoever fan of you team you are listening to this you know over if you are over thirty years old you have watched bell jack and brady show up either in foxborough or at your home field. Kick your ass. It's happened to everybody. And then factoring all the scandals. They became the most polarizing brand in the lake. I know quote unquote the cowboys. One of the biggest brand in the league from a financial standpoint. But from an important standpoint of the league's growth it was the patriots because a lotta people hated him and someone told me a long time ago. If you're going to work in radio television whatever you never wanna be indifferent either. Wannabe hated or you wanna be loved because both those things of oak emotion like with a significant other. The moment she stops carrying about you. You're fucked apathy. Not good for relationships. Were for sports and last year it felt a little with the patriots. Like they didn't matter that much and the thing that has looking back like tom really a villain. He's good looking. He's likable every all of his teammates like them. Really most guys in the league. Respect them. I don't really think he was the villain. He just happened to be there. The villain was belic. He's cold no emotion says nothing in press conferences hates all these other coaches has relationships with guys that worked under him. That got fragmented like eric mangini. He's the ultimate villain but it's hard to be a villain in sports when you're team sucks in the weird part about last year for the patriots. They actually didn't really suck. They went seven and nine with lead league and opt-outs with quarterback who couldn't really throw and they still win seventy nine. The league needs is for the patriots to be relevant for the plate patriots. To be in the playoff mix so when i look at social media and all these people thing. I don't understand if iran. Espn or iran. Any of these fox. I would not allow my news breaker to break the news over twitter. I get why you're doing that five or six years ago. But it's two thousand and twenty one. No revenue was done twitter. Eighty percent of american adults are not on twitter. It feels big. listen. I'm on twitter so it feels big when you see whoever schefter tweet. I like schefter. But if i was his boss and iran espn. I would say we're not breaking any more news on twitter. That's kind of an antiquated way of thinking. I'd break it on youtube. I break it on the network. I break it on the website anywhere else that we own not on a platform. That one guy's getting rich and his name's jack like again. I understand why it used to happen that way. But in two thousand twenty one. It doesn't really pencil. Sorry to get off on the tangent. I just don't understand why we continue to break news on a vehicle. It doesn't matter to me but for these companies that do it. They don't make any money off that it doesn't make any sense but sorry back to bella check. Today he splurged. Jonnu smith who i be honest. I mean he's a very talented player. Hasn't been that productive. They paid him a lot of money. A lot is for his projection. He's young twenty five years old. I saw someone say that it's the most amount of money he's ever spent on a pass. Sketch matt juden. Who is not some true outside. Pass rusher a very versatile. Defensive lineman fits the patriots jalen milk. A versatile defensive back fits the patriots base. Still need a quarterback. I still think as of recording this right. Now my spidey senses seeing think somehow over the next couple of months maybe this week jimmy. Garoppolo ends up on their team. We will see. But here's what. I do know if the patriots are good and i don't mean like thirteen fourteen win good. They're just nine or ten win. Good the nfl's better off because ballot check being relevant. Bella check people root against bell. Jack which like i said in movies unita villain in sports unita villain and look around the nfl. Right who's the villain everyone loves. Mahomes people like tampa bay tampa bay but most of these teams like the rams. You don't think people hate sean mcvay. Now who p carroll and russell wilson aaron rodgers and matlock floor. We don't have one now luckily the nfl so popular. It doesn't matter but you like having that character in a movie. And i think bell jack if you can get this team back on track all these opt out guys coming back in. They signed all these guys that are devoid of some talent. Have a bunch of draft picks if they can just get a functional quarterback it will be refreshing to have bell jack back in the mix because let's face it last year after the first couple of weeks they just were not and you can say the patriots got caught with their pants down or whatever when. Tom laughed and they thought it was gonna be the quarterback then the handed cam contract one million bucks. He it was just a disastrous season. The opt-outs grown virus. It backfired for the patriots. But i actually think five million dollars for cam. Newton good backup. Money doesn't have to be the starter. Everyone's i can't believe they resigned. Cam i can't. You can't mean marcus. Mariota was a backup last year. Made seven and a half million dollars can't make five and unlike merodehe you can bring in cam and short yardage situations he can get you score. Touchdowns lakes actually think he's a fantastic backup especially if you think. He can be a little healthier this year with a shoulder. Clearly check really likes them right. So does josh mcdaniels now. It'll legitimate starter. Are we talking to wildcard team. Because i don't think it's out of the room. Possibility i bell jack being aggressive. Here's what you know. I say this all the time all rich guys. They're impatient like what are they waiting for. Bell checking trying to lose. He's in his late sixties. Like he's not doing some reset rebuild.

Okay i just because of the ferocity of all these transactions and they are coming fast and furious. I mean i know. I am recording this podcast. Later in the night there was no point in trying to do it during the day. Still as i'm recording this anything could happen at any moment. And just out of my so i will probably go through individual transactions and break them down. Maybe the friday podcast. It'll make more sense. Everything will be installed. We've got a lot of moving parts right now. It would be difficult but one thing is very clear with all these transactions is when corona hit right basically a year ago today give or take right in the middle of march and nc double a. Tournament was cancelled. The nba can't every stopped. There was a lot of talk even going into the summer. How the nfl is gonna pull it off. They they obviously canceled. Ota's an offseason activity. They were able to free agency in the draft. There's a lot of unknown and then they powered through it rocky at times. But they did paid a ton of money for testing much smoother. Than i'd say the other sports right basketball's been champs games cancelled left and right the. Nfl did not cancel one game. Now they had to push games back but zero cancellations now. All the sports are different. Nfl more players that the setup of the games are different. I'm not trying to say one. Did it better than the other. I just think the. Nfl is less beholden and save a baseball. The thing with baseball last year they never pretended to care about the virus. Not that they didn't care about the virus but the reason that they were having so many issues between the players and ownership was strictly money. It was all about money. The nfl was just more worried on functioning with the amount of players and the setup how they could pull it off and they figured it out basketball clearly much more worried about the optics and that's a whole nother conversation but baseball strictly cash football cash and complications with just the practice schedule of the sport. Everyone close together but they pull it off now the majority of teams not allowed to have fans all these teams had to refund sweets seats. You name it so money that they made they just didn't get they didn't quote unquote to me lose money. They just didn't make money that they would have made but they still made money because the tv deals are so big. And what things pretty clear. And i read this a couple of days ago still kind of unknown. But it's pretty clear that next year the salary cap could jump up dramatically from one eighty three this year when he five it could fire up the to twenty to twenty five and whether that's in writing whether people say that it's clear teams are spending like that's going to happen. Teams are spending today like the cash is going to start flowing because this fall the stadiums are going to be full. That's pretty clear. I mean hell. I think baseball is poised to have a huge summer. People are going to be dying to go outside. Get outside sit in the sun drink beer. I think baseball's really going to benefit. People are just gonna wanna get out of their homes and do things. And i'm sure many of you listening like half the states in america middle what are you talking about. We're out in our out of our homes true. I mean in california there. We can't attend to game yet but it's coming even and even in my state which is by far the last one to open fucking anything but it's inevitable and football so far away the cash is really gonna flow and these teams today spent the money allocated the resources like not much happened typically. I've never gone bankrupt. I mean. I've been fired before and so yeah didn't have necessarily the same money coming in than i did. Sometimes it can take you six months a year two years to kind of get back on your feet. I know people have gone bankrupt and gone on to make millions after right but that first couple of years making take awhile. I mean your business goes under like just six months later like oh. Everything's good money's flowing again. That's not usually how it works. But the nfl was lucky that they're league was situated because it was the least dependent. Obviously baseball was the most depended on attendance. So the nature of the sport right. They're very attendance. Based a revenue model. Basketball is much more than the the nfl to the nfl's lucky the majority of their revenue for the sport comes from the media rights deal so as long as the games got on and as we know they didn't miss game right. Some got pushed back didn't miss any. They made a bunch of cash so they have a bunch of cash on hand plus the last nine years have been the greatest economic boom in the history of the league. So even the poor teams. That didn't make much from the stadium. Had extra cash. And then the rich teams like the jerry jones of the world can give dak prescott seventy five million dollars in a first year of deal. Not even blink twice teams like the packers have no issue paying running back and really quick on the jones deal. I don't have a big problem with. They can give them that much money. And here's the problem with football contracts that it's hard to discern real money and what is not i say it all the time and the other sports. It's very easy when a basketball player signs are baseball player signs we know if his contracts one hundred twenty million one hundred twenty million dollar contract if it's a forty seven million dollars contract it's a forty seven million dollars contract what i see aaron jones lens four years for forty eight. What the fuck does that mean. He got thirteen million dollar signing bonus so is that i mean basically a one year contract because most. Nfl deals even at most or like a two year. Deal beside the quarterbacks and as you saw today a lot of money kind of gets frontloaded in the bonus they use the multiple years to amortize the cash over the life of the deal so they can mess with the cap numbers but most of these contracts being signed. Today there are four and five year. Deals aren't really five. Year deals the majority of these players. Aren't gonna play five. Know five for that given team. We know if it goes well. Maybe they'll play three if it goes poorly probably two we see it all the time but all teams the chiefs. Pay anthony up. You know the patriots buying all these guys. The raiders by yonathan dock. Way the rams by paying letter forward to stay all these guys getting huge cash. These owners know the cash isn't stopping and we really weren't in that big of a pinch. We just had to take a little bit of a hip for six months. Just refund suites which we're going to get the money right back when they start coming this fall and obviously the new television deal is doubling so next year. The money's gonna flow because the thing that i've noticed watching all these free agency deals if you would've told me corona never existed and you just took john middlekauff from two thousand nineteen and you just plop them on his desk chair right now to record a podcast and you gave me five hours a day. I never knew her own existed. And i was just scrolling through all the transactions. I would say dad just looks like a normal free agent year. You wouldn't know anything is different all year long. I mean all january and february heard you know the top guys are going to get money but everyone else is screwed feels like everyone signing for cash. Everyone's getting paid their their multi year contracts for a lot of players the doom and gloom which is natural. When you're you're in weird economic times but you know who doesn't not really affected by weird economic times the super-rich their unaffected. They're buying everything. I see it right now. in california. the middle class got destroyed during corona. We have more poor people in california than any other state we lead the country and people under the poverty line yet are richest people in the state have never had more money. The suburbs right. Now are booming. Throw up like twenty thirty percent in the bay area in southern california. It's insane the real estate market. Here it is a great place for super rich people because even during the shitty last twelve years they made a ton of money. That's kind of like the nfl. It was awful year for a lot of people except like the internet business and the nfl. And maybe some other. Obviously there's a couple other industries but for the most part most of us we're fighting for economic lives the nfl is. We're gonna have a rough free agency. And then we all check our social media accounts were like sure feels like the money's flowing and people were just jumping into the you know the the tuba coins donald duck. That's what's happening here is he's been paid. He's been paid. He's been paid. He's been paid. It's i opening but when you take a step back and think about it. It's not really. They had an unlimited amount of money for the last nine years. They made a little bit less this year but then they just signed a contract that doubled their biggest revenue source. So you think any of these owners especially the top half of them are worried about money or worried about cash because it's clear they're not now the one thing that i think a lot of fans overreact too and it happens every year. It happens with every nfl contract. Like i can't believe they signed this guy for three years and thirty million dollars until we have the details of every contract the legitimate details. We don't know what any of these numbers me. so i. i never overreacting numbers like god. The chiefs gave thirty eighty million dollars. I bet when we see it it looks like a two year contract right. Oh my god they gave this guy knows magloire twenty six million dollars and it turns out they actually gave him six million dollars because who's pushing out the contract numbers. It's not the general manager. It's not the teams contract negotiator. It's the agent. It's why the number you always see a guy that runs a team told me this a while ago. I always want the agent. Put up a number because i want the player to be happy. I don't want the contract a four year deal worth forty million to come out well. It's actually only really six million dollars. You know why because all of us would then make fun of that guy teams. Love it when it comes out for years forty million dollars you nailed it. Turns out you know. He actually doesn't have true guarantees of over ten million dollars. The team doesn't want that out and the agent will gladly give out the fake cash. It's very fraudulent. Probably the wrong word. It's very hollow a lot of the numbers you read and it's why if you notice the team's never argue no. We're actually not giving them that much. They don't care they're laughing all the way to the bank because they know that they can get rid of a player they know the contract is not binding for four or five years. Most of these deals are one into your contracts and we see it year in year out. It's hard not to overreact. When you see. Adam schefter tweets joe thirty five for eighty like damn. They gave him sixteen million dollars a year and it turns out as basically a two year contract. But it's human reaction. I'm just glad that the nfl you know they treated this agency like it was just any other normal year. Because it's pretty wild it'd be one thing of just. The cowboys had the money. But it feels like the majority of teams in the nfl if they want to if they have the caps space can spend on whoever they want the patriots. Long saving money. They've had cash in the bank for two decades. And pay you you you you you i today was and don't get me wrong. It was very entertaining. I enjoy all these transactions about them for many of you like talking about him like reading about him entertain. It's great entertainment. Actually it's awesome. Glad today happen because it didn't. I don't know what the hell i want to talk to you guys about so thank you. Nfl for having free agency. Here's the thing history would show us that. This week doesn't make or break teams. It just doesn't why. It's a quarterback leak. You win you go. As far as the guy playing quarterback right a. restaurants. Only as good as its food hell podcast only good as host. An nfl team is only as good as coaches quarterback. And i think the craziest part about this free agency is. We still have a lot of quarterback questions is sam darnold going to be going to stay on the jets gonna get traded as ever recording. This i saw jameis. Winston went back to the saints. So i think it's fair to say that saints are gonna roll jameis winston this year. Maybe they draft a guy. But james going to be the quarterback what happens sam darnold or the dolphins gonna grow with to tunga by loa. I mean the dolphins won ten games last year. That's a pretty big question. do they roll to. And he's not as good as ryan. Fitzpatrick was last year. And they take a step back and then the patriots pass them. It's got to be on the table. How about this one of the best players in the nfl a hall of fame quarterback which we've talked a lot about on the show as recently caused stink is russell wilson gonna get traded from seattle. I'm not necessarily expecting it. But i'm not i don't have it in the back of my head. It's not going to happen because if he does move. That changes the landscape of the nfl. Who would they trade him to. I know there are reports. The bears are ready to all in. With what if seattle is gonna trade. They have to trade him to a team with the quarterback. We've talked about this. But do they actually pull the trigger. Does he. end up on the raiders. The raiders ended up with derek carr. What about shawn watson. Is he going to move. Teams because of shawn watson russell wilson and even sam darnold or two on different teams. That has huge ramifications. Who's drafting these rookies. A couple of these rookies could end up on good teams. Who knows that is going to determine this fall because the other thing about this fall is an extra game. We're playing seventeen games. So the war of attrition. a lot of these guys sign contracts are gonna get hurt. You're only as good quarterback now more than ever. You're going to need good quarterback seasons. You always do but extra game in the packer. The teams will gorbachev gonna win twelve to fourteen games so the late works and i mean as of recording this. I was nervous to do this podcast because by the time. You're listening it. Maybe it's like boom. Sam darnold's been traded boom. Jimmy garoppolo has been trader. Boom the bombshell of russell wilson got traded. That'd be one of the biggest trades in nfl. history. I'm not even talking about the compensation i'm just saying if russell wilson were to get traded this week or before the draft that would easily. I have to do a research project. This probably be a top two or three trade ever because if you just factor in how many hall of fame quarterbacks have been traded in their prime it would probably be a small list. And i'm not talking about like steve young when he got traded you know wasn't viewed as that great. I'm talking about a guy that is elite gets traded in his early thirties in a league. Now where you can easily play the forty that that would be pretty nuts. So today was awesome. I expect the next couple of days to be cool. Lot of movement but the league in the landscape of the hierarchy of teams is determined by your quarterback and so far no quarterbacks have changed teams breeze retired. I'll get into that in a minute. Obviously they just kept james so nothing really change their. I think they'll be solid james. James might be better and drew brees but what about the pro bowlers. Do the two pro bowl. Marquee guys move teams. I think we all assume deshaun watson will eventually move teams. My guess is he does during the draft. But russell wilson is one of the great curve. Balls in the history of the offseason. Because it's not like you know. Remember when air rodgers got traded at thirty to remember when you go through some of the league is that never have never even conversation. It's just something. I'm kind of keeping an eye on because if that were to happen i suck for seattle fans. Can you imagine being a seattle fan. Especially if you you're like my age like thirty five most of your life. The team sucked and then even when they were good for a couple of years holmgren. It was just a well balanced team. It wasn't hasselbeck. Was the quarterback. You finally get the star guy. You have a stud coach a stud operation in now. Eight years in. It feels like it's deteriorating. If i was a fan of be like guys fucking figure it out. Russell getting room and i've said over and over the problem why it's gonna be hard to figure it out. It's too rich alpha males with no mediator with no one to mediate the conversation right. The owners passed away toward john. Schneider can't it's a tough position to be in. But i know if this. If i was a diehard fantasies and ticket holder i under no circumstances would i be okay with any sorta trade. Hey guys figure this out. Russell wilson cannot change teams. But i mean it doesn't feel like that he's like dead set on coming back. Obviously seattle would have to trade him but who knows. I mean pete's in charge. Pete is the boss makes probably twelve thirteen million dollars. A year can do whatever he wants. He wants to trade russell. Wilson russell wilson we get traded. So that's for. Like i said today was really cool. But if any of these quarterbacks move teams that won move would be as big as every single move it added geico knows there are many reasons why you ride from the exciting adventure of the daily commute to the peace of mind. That geico always has your back with twenty four seven access to claim service and legendary customer service but pamela had one in particular. My skin is extremely verse to most fabrics except for the soft buttery feeling of leather thankfully. I found my clan of leather lovers in the bike community. It's been life changing guy go motorcycle. Fifteen minutes could save you. Fifteen percent or more fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. Is that shakespeare. It's gyco that shakespeare from one of his unpublished works to be not for awakening. Give it though. The berries for fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more no. It's from geico because they help. Save people money. Well i hate to break it to you but geico got it from shakespeare geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more one thing. I learned when i was in radio. It actually doesn't really happen in. Podcast is if you have a radio show. And i had a show in the bay area from ten to noon for like four years and i was. I never really took vacation because when you take vacation and you have a show and it happens on television to someone s to fill in for you and i was just the way i was wired like i didn't want someone else doing my job. The only other real job i ever had was an nfl scout. Well when you take the summer off like scouts do. No one does your job. That's the entire time. But the moment i go on vacation for a month in the summer when nothing's going on her radio show you fill in for you and maybe i sounds good. Maybe i'm paranoid. But i know a lot of media people think like this. I don't wanna give my show up. I never left. Unless you're established guy like hong then you don't even think twice about but i was very very paranoid doing that. Why because several times. While i was doing that show the morning show would go on vacation and they would move us to the morning morning. Drive the highest paying radio job. I mean it's a dying position now but a forever. When radio was in his heyday. You wanted to be on morning drive. And they'd put us in for a couple of weeks and then come back. God your ratings are really good. And i would hear some rumblings thought about maybe moving you guys to a drive time spot. Obviously because if you're paying a morning drive guy five hundred grand. I would've gladly at that time taking a lot less money than that. You know whatever the money is right cheaper option who can do the same numbers if not better you see tv you're like you know a guy a tv host. Take some time off happen late night shows and guys get to fill in. It's an audition even though it quote unquote is not an audition. Everything i think about in life anytime you get the opportunity to do anything. You're always auditioning whether it's not even talking about to get the job. Future clients future business partners like people always paying attention if you keep that mindset helps keep you on your toes and so drew brees retired. He went on the today show. I had a text from my mom this morning. Like seven fifteen like played perfectly to that audience like wow drew brees going broadcast. I'm like thinking to myself. Yeah mom be announced a year ago but for the casual fan. They didn't know. And then i saw what he's doing for a job and he's he's going to be calling notre dame football with mike tirico. I'm gonna give you a prediction right now. Within the next twenty four months also known as the next two years mike tirico and drew brees will be the sunday night. Football crew on nbc. Because you can't mike to. Rico could do sunday night football. He has done it. I mean he's called monday night football. He could do it tomorrow. He could do it in asleep but drew. Brees need some reps for example louis riddick. Before he got the monday night football job in two thousand twenty he called college football games in two thousand nineteen. Al michaels is getting up there in age. He's closer to eighty. Then he is seventy chris collins worth who is good. I no issue with chris. Collins worth is sixty two hasn't played a meaningful down in the nfl. Since i was a kid. I'm thirty six year old bulb. Those guys are on borrowed time. Now it's tough. I think they're going to our would have to kind of retire. But it's clear what's going to happen. Drew's gonna get a year. Maybe two doing notre dame football and they're moving those two guys to sunday night football. That feels like to me. The biggest lock going in college worth. I'm sure is not. He's a smart guy. Realize what's coming. al has been doing. Hell he called the usa hockey game in one thousand nine hundred so it's not like algorithm. He's old retire. Hang out in la and chill but it's clear what they're doing they are grooming a big name now. Maybe there's a chance the drew stinks. Because i don't know if he's a lock to be good like. I think philip rivers would be excellent tv. He just has a huge personality. He's just very very aggressive with his words. He doesn't swear so he doesn't even need like thinking he can just talk. I don't think drew necessarily does either. But i just wonder and it'll be interesting like what drew sounds like on television. I don't view drew. Brees is a made for tv guy. Andrew is i mean druce in very impressive individual. Obviously he's not as a hall of fame player. He's a hall of fame person. But i heard like just get in front of mike given your takes in rapid fire college football game or an nfl game but it's cleared the good ones and the bad ones like it's not an easy position to be in. You have to give quick takes on the action that just happened in a smart comprehensive. You know angle that is digestible for the average fan. The broadcasts are not for the die. Hearts are not for the guys that want to dive into the xs and os of the deep all twenty two film. But you have to be able to talk about that like an elementary level. It's just difficult. There are many good ones right. it's an entertainment position. When i think about the best analysts of of my lifetime it was maddening grew and they were very surface level guys but what were they huge personalities. Just huge alpha's in the booth. They just you just felt their presence. When you're watching a game they were calling and like troy is good. But he's just kinda smooth. He's just i just call troy aikman appro right like to me gruden and madden were rockstars and i'd say collins worth is a pro so you could argue. Nbc is not looking for a quote unquote rockstar drew brees by name rockstar. Huge name very very famous. Will he be good enough to do this. I don't know but you know anyone that knows anything about this business. It's clear where they're going and if he's if you watch notre dame's games this year and you just to rico and brees feel like nansen romo that first year romo was unique right. He just immediately got the never even had to basically never united audition. Maybe i do like an audition tape. I don't even think. I mean he just hit the ground running. It was on drew. At least i mean asked to call some games to earn his quote unquote stripes with the with the company organization. Slash the league but the league wants a big name star on sunday night. Football and calls again is really good but he's sixty two years old. The average person under forty couldn't tell you what team played for big name twi romo such as easy transition. Hell even troy aikman like everyone knows treatment played. And what position. Quarterbacks moved the needle now you gotta be good right. The nba is full of really famous. Broadcasters analysts who are chris weber from sacramento. he's one of those overrated players of all time. He's terrible on tv. Reggie miller also bad like they use former players. There's not any good but it's hard. I mean it's a tough position to be in. I think about baseball. Baseball's hit or miss. Some are some are better than others football. I think it's fair to say the majority of them and again. Maybe i'm too hard on these guys. Maybe i'm negative. I think most of them suck. I think most gas that i watch are awful. I mean they really are now like i said. I don't think it's an easy thing to do. I don't think the majority of people could do it smoothly. But i think the way that it set up. It's very difficult for guys succeed. Small amount succeed now. You could argue most things in life. A small percentage of people actually have success. So that's the way in any high level industry your profession but if drew was just like a seven or eight out of ten it might be a year in the news on the in the nbc booth. So you heard it here first. Prediction drew brees. Mike rico sunday night football next couple of years. Okay said i wasn't going to do it but you know i saw a couple of things and i got excited and i want to talk about some transactions. Some specific moves and listen. Free agency is about filling needs. The draft is about picking great players right the draft. Bpa take the best player available especially early in the first and second round. Don't force needs. Take the best players on your board develop them. Hopefully they become stars or just really good starters on your team. Free agency is about plugging holes. You need a wide receiver go by a wide receiver. But don't just by any wide. Receiver picks the scheme fit you. Know what offense you run you evaluate all these guys in the nfl and you watch what they do. Well and you pick the guy that fits. This is what we want. He does that well. Boom plug and play same with linemen defensive line linebackers whatever. The draft is about projecting. How's this gonna work. How can we develop them. You're not developing bud. Dupree or yana or nelson agholor like. They're ready to play right now. And they have strengths and weaknesses in the best evaluators and the best teams sign the guys weaknesses. They're not going to ask them to do and their strengths are going to be. What hopefully the coaching staff. Ask that guy to excel with right what he does well. That's what i'm going to ask you to do what you don't do well. We're not going to waste time on that. That's what free agency is plugging holes on your team. Okay i mean a move that just had to happen. We talked about this guy last week. John group their defense is atrocious. It's slow they generate no pressure so they they signed janaka to actually very team friendly deal two years twenty six million dollars the twenty million dollars guaranteed as a buddy in the league told me he's basically a healthy d- ford he's a speed pass. Rusher mike mayock someone ripped when when the draft was going on however many years ago in two thousand sixteen when jahic was drafted called him a note in the. Nfl has a designated pass. Rusher known as you can't play the run. I'd bring you in on passing downs. D. ford made the pro bowl that way speed rusher. That's what jahic does. Well gus bradley been around this guy. They should know him if they asked this guy to play the run. He's gonna get rolled if they ask them to come in second and third long and just pins ears back and chase the quarterback. They got themselves a steal. Because this guy can rush the passer and they didn't really give him that much money. I liked the deal for the raiders. Now their defense is still not very good but that makes sense. The chargers star quarterback. What do you need to do with the young star quarterback what happens when you don't protect them. They can get scars. They can get derailed. They can not live up to their potential. So what did they do today. They signed corey lindsay from packers. they signed another offensive. Linemen from the pittsburgh steelers guy with position for stability going heavy on the offensive line. You know why they got a good defensive lineman they have a good defense. They have a head coach. Who coaches on the defensive side of the ball that unit he was just with the rams. They were number one in the league. Have good skill guys keenan allen. They got mike williams. They need to protect. Justin herbert so props to them for not being quote unquote sexy but just going with good players. Up front to protect the franchise. Because for many years with philip rivers their offensive line was terrible and it hurt their chances to be a really good team. I give the jets credit. They have a long way to go. And they have a lot of draft picks but they signed to solid starting players today. Kara lawson of the cincinnati bengals pass rusher in corey davis wide receiver tennessee. Titans one thing the jets really lack was evident when you wash play. They just didn't have many. Nfl solid starters. These guys are high. I wouldn't say high end but above average stars and they need to continue to add impact players. Right you think becton can be an impact player. Can they land a couple more impact players in this draft if they keep sam darnold as recording this. He's still on the team if you surround them with enough quote unquote impact players. You can be a competitive team because it's clear right. The bills are really good. The dolphins are solid. The patriots added half the free agents on the open market today. Like you to be good in this division. It went from the division sucked for twenty years. It was check and brady the now feels like the divisions a lot deeper especially the jets if solid good and joe. Douglas is good. The division can be this division. Could be deep. It's weird to say about the nfc. We think about it sucking but who knows the tennessee. Titans one thing that tennessee titans lacked it last year. When you watch them play was their defense was not good but their pass rush was awful and a huge part of their. Db's often got people talk shit about their db's couldn't cover anybody when you can't rush the passer it's hard to cover. So what did they do. Today they went out and they got bud dupree who did tears. Acl which not ideal but as we see in the nfl guys come back from tornado. Seattle's pretty seamlessly and he was a guy who was going to get a ton of money if he was one hundred percent healthy. So i like this move. And i like the move a lot for the tennessee. Titans they also added nickel autry. Who's good versatile. interior. You play at multiple positions. He's he's a good pass rusher. he's long he's cute. he's like six six remember. When he played for the raiders. This first couple of years. I really liked had a really good kind of career renaissance with the indianapolis colts so team. Who's defense wasn't any good. Who last year. Clowney was a disaster for them at a two. Really good defensive lineman like i said the key to free agency is to plug holes raiders speed outside russia. They desperately needed that chargers offensive. Line the jets just players good players. We obviously talked about the patriots. Had a ton of holes the titans multiple pass rushers the chiefs. What happens. They cut to offense of tackles. They sign an offensive lineman about plugging holes. That's the key in a lot of these teams are just doing smart pragmatic not giving you eighty million seventy sixty million dollars guaranteed just signing good players. Who can help you win now. None of these guys. That i just mentioned are gonna make or break teams like we talked about about the quarterbacks. It's gonna come down to the execution between your coach and your quarterback but to win in this league big double digit games to win the playoffs. You have to have a good team. Like what has been the downfall of the packers they just. They haven't been well rounded enough their defense always let them down right always this year with the white or the chief losing super bowl the bucks were just way better to win the whole thing. And that is the goal of all these playoff level teams. The titans obviously chiefs but make long runs in the playoffs. You have to have a good team when you have major holes in the nfl. It gets exposed the moment like these coaches get all like half. The league's coaches are make an eight to ten million dollars a year. If you have a major weakness that coach will expose that weakness over and over and over all game. Some some of it's out of your control the amount of injuries we're going to add a game. Who knows how. The off season plays out in terms of Training and otas but depth on your roster is sochi because evitable. You're gonna lose players. They're going to go on. I are they might come back. You're gonna lose them for a month. Lose this guy. Lose that guy as long as you. Don't lose your quarterback if you build your team the right way if you're good on the lines to me. That's the key. Be good on the offensive and defensive lines now. I love linebacker tight end. I love good corner. I like all these positions but to me it starts there once. You have the quarterback offensive and defensive line. Then you've got a chance to be really good and you got a chance to compete with anybody. It's so cliche like all win. In the trenches shits true tampa bay buccaneers they fucking dominated in the trenches the year before the forty niners walked su book because they dominated in the trenches the chiefs that you're ultimately took down the niners because they were pretty good office line. It's about winning upfront. it's never sexy signed guard. it's never sexy. I one of my biggest quote unquote mrs as just someone that talks about this stuff was. I thought chris ballard was an idiot. Idiot would be strong. I thought the value was crazy. For drafting quinton nelson in the top. Ten a guard in the top ten. I was wrong. Because if he's an elite hall of famer. It's always worth taking an offensive lineman in the top ten. Take a you take hall of fame. Offensive linemen number. One overall guard center care. I'll take elite offense lineman all day. Long one thing i've changed. My defensive lime obviously quarterback the most important position. But there's not another position that holds a candle that any of the opposites of defensive line if the guys in the league player because those guys make such a big difference and it makes us the whole unit much better so i love teams just in the trenches. Because that's again we one of these guys. All what a cliche thing to say. And then that teams usually winning and the team with no offensive lineman but a bunch of sexy skill. Guys goes six and ten.

"If you're hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions then zero in on your short list of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started at indeed dot com slash outside is Antonio Brown sending threatening text messages to one of his accusers. That's what the NFL is looking into or Josh too much going on here for the NFL not to look at this long and hard this situation or than anything else may get him off. The field giants have made it official rookie quarterback annual. Jones will start on on Sunday. The era of you. I manning is over. All the pressure is now squarely on Daniel Jones and the giants management that this was the right decision not dying and the season's over so I just got except my new role and and make the best just playing one game at Fenway Park makes me a winner. We glossed off. I thought he went to bed at eight thirty. Four the end days off Utah Puts Down Jacksonville Park attacks. That's my kid. It's the four here on outside. The Lines Ryan Smith here. Let's get you right to our big story and it's Antonio Brown once again and it's questions about misconduct misconduct. Let's break this down for you earlier this week. Sports illustrated revealed troubling behavior in the past by the embattled wideout including allegation from an artist who said Brown ground once flirtatiously approached her with only a wash cloth covering his groin area now. She didn't seek to reveal this. SL uncovered in its reporting but yesterday her lawyer reached out up to the NFL claiming the Browns said the accuser threatening text messages after the story came out and according to these reports Brown put on a group tax with a couple of others encouraging them into investigating investigate her disparaging her character and her children today. Bill Belichick was asked about the developments there are questions about Antonio we take all the situations where team very seriously and there's some things that we're looking into the kind of any comment on the off the field situations and after a few minutes of that Bella check walked out of the room so after those questions brown done box out so I want to ask you guys. You know. Obviously we did this last week. When these allegations about another accuser surface this this is again. I want to remind people this is someone totally different and again she did not sort of seek anything from this they found her when you see the situation and when you hear about the most recent allegations. Gatien's allegedly these texts being sent from Brown. What should the NFL do about it? They have to investigate and they are. They are investigating but should they take action. I think they I should because this to me is a violation of the personal conduct policy and just one thing. I WanNa comment is the way that we are treating this as the media and the public when we heard about it before we were a little skeptical right. We weren't really covering it very much. We're Robert Go. The reporter with sports illustrated published the actual text messages and when you saw them everyone wanted to act in ever got a little more outrage reminds me a lot of the ray rice. I situation once you saw it on video. TV Act of violence or threat of violence then we WANNA act it's a shame because in many ways we thought we had moved past that that and we talked a lot about in the public and the NFL we want to hear people's stories but is it just sort of the same circumstance well look. I think we gotta talk about also what we just saw. Bill Belichick right I mean here is the number one coach in professional football arguably in all of sports arguably the greatest of all time and he's got a star player that he signed a couple of weeks ago. It's a guy who's been playing for him. Forever that soon. There's some kind of relationship where they really understand each other know each other and it is been this series of allegations and these texts in the period since he's become a patriot. It's just not good enough for bill. Bell check to say. I don't want to talk about what city say. He should say we take the. He said. We take this very seriously but he should say look. This is not behavior. We condone if these allegations are true. It's unacceptable. We this is not a franchise that is going to be about winning eating. It all costs there is more that Bill Belichick can say and I mentioned this last week on the air but I go back to twenty five years ago almost when they drafted Christian repeater and it was so upsetting to Myra Kraft Robert Kraft wife who died eight years ago that after drafting him she insisted they get rid of him after those allegations and actual things that he had done surfaced and were publicized and I find it hard to believe that I don't know how to put this but but if there were still voice in the organization like that I think this would we wouldn't be talking about Antonio Brown still playing this week and there is an option here with the NFL. They could put him on the exempt list he could. Maybe not play if they wanted to go that way and or the Patriots could just say he's not gonNA play. I also say that the fact that Bell Jack said anything thing is also miraculous. Anything's always talking about next week so there's smoke. There's fire kind of storyline and Brown seems to be the smoldering ball ball of self-destruction right. So where does it go because every time you get further down the timeline something else pops up so if you don't intercept that it's something that's a ticking thing time bomb and so the League from that standpoint has their own motivation to address it and then the team itself organizationally certainly knows a lot that they're concerned about so you know when you see the destruction you gotta. Watch out wonder if one of the reasons that ballot check did speak like you said with eloquently for him. I've never seen him. Put that many sentences in a press conference about something off the field was because has all the things we've been talking about Antonio Brown before happened before he was a patriot. We've seen them take in trouble players in the past and saying hey now that they're under are walks. They're patriots when he sends these text a message to this woman. It was Wednesday night. He was a new England patriot and again. You know he's entitled to due process. I says he's entitled to a fair hearing of a of his thoughts on this stuff but those texts you no change the way that we have to if he sent those text and they're serious about sexual misconduct and this is real intimidation. I don't see how you don't put them on the exemplary. I Wanna I bring up something very quickly. Domingo this and they just want to sort of throw this out there. We don't have a lot of time. He was recently. Put on administrative leave. The reports now is that he's not going to pitch for the Yankees. As for the rest of the season. This is based on an allegation of some sort of domestic violence. We don't know what that is there is no police report but the MLB and the Union they're taking action in the NFL NFL. They're investigating. What do you make a difference and the Major League Baseball certainly learned from the NFL to a large degree to try to be more aggressive so there's more of a okay you got to prove yourself now? We're going to investigate in the meantime you're on leave so they're taking that position and some of that relates the safety of the victim and all these other so they're trying to be. PROACTIV and they're having a lot more success in the NFL rain in the Brown thing. If you're sending those kinds of threatening text messages you put this in a court. That's witness tampering and right there. You're GONNA get penalized. I think maybe brown needs to be penalized. If in fact he did send those things. We'll see what happens all right. Let's go to our other big story and it is out of the giants. You know it by now. Daniel Jones taken over for Manning Eli Manning facing the questions about whether his career is over. We'll get to that later but guys. What do you think about this move. And how do you think about the way the giants handled it. I think they handle the grave. Reporters asked ally manning what do you do with it handled respectful. He said yes. They've been communication. He was in communication with the ownership. Look look I grew up around a lot of giants fans how they're thinking about it. We're grateful for Eli Manning. He wants to super bowls. He'll probably go in the hall of fame. He's not a great quarterback right now. Daniel Jones has more mobility. They don't have the stack the box teams again. They Barclay because that's the prime guy right now. You gotTA protect Saquon and I think you know that there's been a tendency. I think recently in sports we'll see well. A guys had a great history somewhere he's been loyal and so we have to sacrifice for him. It's kind of the Anti Bill Bella check philosophy sophy which we sometimes see employed with the Lakers did at the end of the Kobe run and that's not the way the game is played an ally gets that if anybody gets it at this point it's Eli. It's not like we love you. Eli We're loyal to you and you're one of the great players in the history of the franchise so we're just going to do what's best for us. There's some that's not of gratitude. They owed him by saying. Maybe at the beginning of look we are going to go with Daniel. Jones would come on what he succeed in this situation with this team. We'll never know remember the last coach that benched him. What happened to him right? That was so the giants if right down there clearly on board yeah I mean times up and that's that's the arc of a career and you'd have to move on. If you're trying to win at all costs it's harsh the world of football the world of sports. I mean go figure figure but let's talk about this coming up after the big pay the pay to play act could become law in California but could soon get even more benefits in another state and the NFL's Dell's most powerful viewer find out who that is next hour just say when it comes to hiring.

We're sick of it. That's why we go to our viewer complaints of the week Superman or call them superfan this kind of Tom. Right after that first half fifteen penalties he waited on twitter too many penalties. Just let us play. Oh Yeah it's Tom Brady and then seven minutes later. I'm turning off the game. I can't watch these ridiculous penalties anymore and so we all know that part of guess what happened no penalties in the third five penalties in the entire second and a half. Steve Message received. I guess my question is this. Do we need Tom. Brady to fight all our football battles. I think we need to make everything just running the planet nearly and you would think though that he would maintain enough interest in the game just to see another sixth round quarterbacks succeed it'd be it'd be enough to hard when you're stopping stopping them from playing does this and Tom. Brady has like the best offensive line on on the planet. The Andrew Luck is not tweeting that out there okay. He's not so pretty. Eddie has the luxury of being in the pocket and not nobody's getting to this guy so you know. Can I ask we joke. That was an artist. Tom Brady period is is there a world emily just a thought in a world that might have actually made a difference that somebody from the NFL might I've seen it been like yeah guys thought existed New Orleans Louisiana. I I love that okay. Let's go right to under reported boarded stories. Thank you Tom for making the game much more penalty free by the way under reported stories. Let's start out with a story from the NHL Emily under important because let's be Frank no-one likes talking about Labor negotiations but I think happened in the NHL this week this NHLPA opted out opt in rather to not reopen the that means. We're GONNA have of labor peace for at least until twenty twenty two. That's huge considering Gary Bettman's watch. There have been three lockouts and now the players have two big issues. They WANNA get achieved. One escrow. It's assistant were they withhold a portion of a player salary potential pitfalls the Olympics and international play those are going to have to go and kind of informal discussions offline and no Doug. You've worked with Donald FEHR WHO's with now working with NHLPA. He used to be this seems Frankfurt right. He wants to fight. I mean you know he fought and as you know is on the executive subcommittee with him and he was always looking for the right way to advance the ball and he came from that legacy of Marvin Miller who fought every battle one every bottle and so maybe a kindly handler gentler dog fear on some levels but you know this is something that he played the long damn this time and I think it's a little different strategy now. I don't actually think it's a kinder gentler. Don Entre think he wanted to fight Houston's listening to its constituents here. The players didn't WanNa might appetite anymore. It look you could make the argument now right emily that after all these years ears running the League it's now twenty seven season right that there has never been a commissioner in any sport you could talk about Pete Rozelle or lands or whoever who's wielded the power in his game. The Gary Bettman now wields in hockey. It started challenge. It's amazing that we were at this point with him. With all the criticism he has taken over the years. I mean look it must be Good Economic Vegas Golden Knights. They entered the league at a five hundred million dollar expansion fee couple years later. Seattle goes. It's six hundred billion dollars. Fifty plus dot com not bad all right. Let's talk about another under reported story and you've heard of the California pay hey to play act. That's the law that's the bill that's out there that they hope becomes law that essentially would pay players for players profit for the use of their name likeness image well now. New York is taking up on this so New York City state Senator Kevin Parker is proposing a bill. That's just like the California bill so players in New York would get to be able to profit off their name like there's an image but he's also proposing that they get fifteen percent of their revenue and split it among all the student athletes in their particular school. It's an interesting proposal and this is the waterfall continue on the NCAA and they're always a step ahead. They find ways to negotiate through the courts often subtle a lot of these challenges but a lot of other states are considering this type of legislation so they're going to have to have this discussion and and so much that he goes back to the history of the Sports Broadcasting Act eighteen sixty one. I mean the long history where the revenue in the sharing how it's GonNa work as come around the player and now the players are having power to try to stake a claim and legal arguments are starting to become more and more compelling. This also raises a lot of issues of your time about fifteen in percent for all the athletes you could argue well. How is that fair when they're only a few sports that are generating revenue and others are so keyed up what if you're talk about equity in actual revenue generating joke about a basketball player. Syracuse versus say all due respect their great wrestling team but a wrestler at Cornell or something like that anymore does cut the argument that some players will seek excessive profits while others will get nothing even though they both put put a lot of time into the sport but you make a great point. I want to talk about another under reported story here. This really flew under the radar. When the story originally came up it did not it was huge news a wrestler Andrew through Johnson in high school wrestling match being forced to cut off his dreadlocks in order to wrestle by referee Alan Moloney well here we are nine months later and Maloney has been suspended for two years. He will not be able to referee wrestling matches then. We had Jesse Washington on the show yesterday. He's very close to the Johnson family. They said thank goodness result. They weren't entirely satisfied with the result but they said at least something is happening and guys. What do you think of this result and and what this story is brought about in the first place but we I mean we've talked about this on the air bunch and it's certainly you know the video shocking and look look the message being sent is this is not twenty to go about it and you. Could you could argue about whether it's too lenient. Whether it's too severe there are different ways ways to look at it but the message is clearly being sent that we are respecting different ways now of wear your hair in different ways to present yourself. Breath is statically that don't necessarily conform to the World Wendy's rules were written from some perspective and the State Attorney's Office got involved in this as well the attorney general and part of their message was yes. We believe that there was a discriminatory element in this and as a result one of the things they're doing is they're having discrimination training and sensitivity training for people in that district to make sure something like this never happens again. Okay what one high school coach did to give opponents a leg up. You have to hear this one to believe it and what can Garner do for you. You'll see villains and heroes up next it. I can't believe it that Gerald Gerald presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets look here comes one point seven percent decrease in overhead everybody no I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on car insurance guy go. Oh you know projected increase in Organic Q. Three revenue I believe I could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance the hunt for Tober rolls on tonight on ESPN ESPN APP with a special postseason impact double header billy's Indian at seven eastern then rockies take on the dodgers who are chasing the best record in baseball and home field advantage throughout the play offs good night baseball about that sportscenter at six eastern after PT. I was saying Kevin GonNa have the latest on Superfan Tom. Brady with the Patriots massive favorites. It's over the jets and of course Brady just having power to do whatever you needs plus which team has the most to lose on Saturday Notre Dame Michigan or Auburn and Tim Kirch and explains the the power shift in the wild card race sportscenter after PTI on ESPN and the APP okay. Let's talk villains and let's start it with emily with a villain. We've heard this man's name before. Obviously unfortunately we have sworn testimony in court we find out that an ex staffer says there were they student athlete that had ache was kicked out of his high school team for sexual misconduct staffers had worn Mark Dantonio. We should not put this guy on scholarship. Antonio went to bat for the Guy Guess. What in college sexual misconduct and it's just an awful story and I think the larger story here is look. The Guy was born. Testimony is currently suing the school for wrongful termination. Let's let's keep that in mind but this is a toxic culture at Michigan State. This is not the first time we've heard it. This is not the first time we've heard of the football team putting football. I athletics. I and it's it's troublesome to me okay. This is the worst kind of nightmare for parents who send their kids off to. These schools in the hope is that the coaches who have so much leeway and they have so much which discretion and empower and sway with the admissions office are making the right kind of choices when they don't it's scary. I mean resting singing state. You know this culture is not showing up very well in these in this context and I think Michigan State needs to talk to someone like Brenda Tracy the Hashtag set the expectation expectation she talks about how and she's a survivor herself and understanding how to work with these athletes so they they look at the legislative effect in fact for example of being able to go back and recognize what's happened before and not being relevant information when you recruit someone for example so that would be some cultural shift to consider because because there's information out there on the better about doing wonderful work with a number of colleges. I WanNa talk about another villain here. This is a high school. Coach just listened to this story this young. The coach's name is Justin Hager now he coach girls basketball and he was an assistant coach with the Mountain Pointe High School football team over a a two year period. He is accused of leaking sensitive information about the teams. He coached and even other teams at the school that he didn't didn't coach. We are talking. They say hundreds of emails game plans injury report. PDF's of different plans for two years. You ask me what's the motive. Nobody knows yet. I feel like this is a story on Fiction C. On lifetime respect run told in some respects just grunfeld but still over a two year your period he had an alias Email address allegedly Walter Payton twelve. I mean this thing is just so bizarre again. It's come into a lifetime movie near you but I just. I cannot cannot imagine a situation where somebody would do this. Bottom line is I. I read that part of it is the kids for two years. They had to be coached by a guy who sharing game plans to go out how to play the Games though I know and they're taking the high road by the way they're like look. We lost game. Whatever that's what we did. We still play hard yeah man. Can you believe it all right. Let's Talk Heroes and with our heroes we start with Doug. We'll have to talk about the family returning to fenway through the legacy of Karl Carl with a Hall of Famer a Lifetime Legend icon and his grandson Mike. You're shrimps. He plays for the San Francisco giants who by the way never play at Fenway Park comes in and the I game gets a home run I mean it was incredible to watch the fusion of generations and baseball special game like that talked about families and connection through the sport and so this is a once in a lifetime really moment to see maybe once in a generation to see the timeline. He was a fourteenth round. Draft picks grinded his way seven years in the minor the league's for this moment at twenty eight twenty nine twenty nine years old. I love that story Jeremy. This is also a homecoming of sorts. Odell Beckham Junior back in the metropolitan the area playing for the Cleveland browns Monday night one of the most spectacular touchdowns we might see all season long not only that you know coming back performing the way that he has a and then there was one interception thrown by Baker Mayfield. You saw it there. Odell Beckham said that he apologized apologize to Baker Mayfield for making that interception possible by not preventing the defensive back from grabbing it so sometimes it's about pure athleticism assist. Sometimes it's about other things that we talk about heroes here. Odell Beckham. This was a good week for him all right and from that class he moved to another class move Eli. I manning obviously taken a back seat to Daniel Jones. He was asked a very interesting question. Take a listen. He ended up paying uh-huh so I'm not dying and the season's over about that class and he was classy the entire time answering those questions from from reporters. I don't think people always think about the fact that he's been starting since two thousand four and this is really been his team. He's being asked take a back seat. He could have done a lot of things could've said nothing to of the media but instead. He took the high road even with a question like that all right well. Thanks for joining us. We will see you next week N._F._L. Live is next.

You know just washing football right now even though it's smaller schools and the next weekend is when we get the ACC kicking off, so we'll have some bigger football games in and. Look things have looked good Austin. P.. In central. Arkansas played last week. After that game everyone got tested and there wasn't one positive cova tests. Now, listen that is one single game. Okay that that that has nothing to do and means nothing for the season head. But if you're trying to take a couple of a moral victories as we go here, that's that's the first one to take. That's. The want to take that that's an exciting time, and let's see what happens from here. We don't know. We don't know if we're going to get one week two weeks, three weeks or a whole season. It's all up in the air. But what we do know is we are going to get some games so enjoyable while you can't. Enjoy while you can let's hope for safety. But enjoyable while you can because we don't know how much how long this is going to go and the cool thing about it was. It actually felt like some normalcy was getting back in our lives when I was watching football the other night, you know what I mean because. The NBA NHL it's been fantastic. The have been great to watch, but they are playing in a bubble. So when you win watching those games while they have been super entertaining and I, love that we have those games on I, mean I it made me realize this pandemic. How crazy I am because I was nuts I was I was bored out of my mind without sports in that realized, you know that might be an issue, but it is what it is. I Love Sports I can't do anything about. So I'm very happy that we have these games on and. But. It feels different I mean clearly it is different, right? It's an empty stadium with a peak video board of virtual fans behind him. There isn't much normalcy involved in those games like they were going out of their way to create a different environments that we can have games baseball like, yeah. Baseball's not doing the bubble thing, but it's a short short in wacky season different sub teams play this game sometimes played this amount of games like everything is off it says so even watching baseball, it's clearly not the same. But. When watching football, it truly feels like for the first time in five six, seven months that things are back to normal and obviously the art. But but when you're going through rough times like we are as a country and as a world right now getting some normalcy back is. Good. And having football back on was very cool to see, and I'm really enjoying it and I. Hope you guys are as well and let's enjoy for as long as we can't because we don't know how much longer we're going to get it. So what we're GONNA do today quarter number one. WE'RE GONNA START WE'RE GONNA come out firing. WE'RE GONNA come out hot right away Patriot Talk Patriot? Talk. Right. Away Cam Newton. named. Captain. But. Patriots letting go of another offensive weapon. Are there any weapons left on this team on the offensive side of the ball and my getting worried about my patriots picked to win the AFC East we're going to discuss it right off the bat then after that, we're going to go from. One for the Patriot organization to. Really the greatest patriots all time. That's right, Tom? Brady and the box adding another offensive weapons to the Patriots losing an offensive weapon. The box adding another one has this team. Now, the books have a box officially become a super bowl or boss season. I mean that roster stacked from top to bottom. We're GONNA look at the addition of litter for what does this do for the team coming out at halftime we will then dive into all the recent news going on around the NFL see I figured what the NFL catching are starting this week we should go through everything going on guys getting released from teams, veterans getting released from teams like Peterson, today being clowney is on. The move two teams left, who's GonNa take them titans or saints. The bears have officially named starting. qb In twenty twenty did they make the right choice? All of this stuff we're going to go through sit at caught up on every single news topic as we go into Thursday night and then quarter number four we're going to do a lot of fun things this this quarter we're GONNA do bold predictions now keep in mind. These aren't real predictions we will be giving you are real predictions on Tuesday. These are bold prediction so you might sound a little bit crazy. You're seemed like impossible to happen but that's the whole point of a bold prediction and keep in mind I do actually believe these things could happen. I'm not just trying to pick the most outlandish narrative or anything like that. These are predictions where if everything goes right I could see it happen. So we will dive into that, we will continue our top hit NFL players of two, thousand twenty gives you we gave you ten, nine, eight last episode. So we will give you seven six and five and the fifth best players in the NFL for the twenty twenty season episode. So that is all coming up in quarter number spore stay tuned for that coming up in just a little bit but for now. It's time to talk about the New England Patriots. The team that you either love them or you hate them it's hard to be right in the middle right either. Them or you don't. But. You know sometimes you just gotTa Pat Yourself on the back right when you do a good job. You really happy you just gotTa pass on the bag well, right now ladies and gentlemen I'm GonNa give? Myself. A little pat on the back because I was right. See this is the thing with with making predictions in sports radio. Sometimes, it takes a little while to foresee that prediction that you make is right or wrong. You know like sometimes you make a prediction that really won't come into notice or not really won't in that prediction will happen for for months and sometimes you make a prediction where day or a week it comes in it comes into fruition so. That's the thing with making picks making predictions when you do sports radio and I, told you guys to things right after Cam Newton consignments patriots remember that I told you too. Thanks one. That nonsense that jared stood him had any chance to beat out Cam Newton and be the starter week. One was just not happening not a chance I said that that was a joke. I said Right Away Cam Newton will win this job and not only did he win the job but he wanted in two weeks. And that's nothing against it. This is all about Cam and the player he is when he is healthy and I also told you guys told you that candidate Bill Belichick. We'll get along just fine. There was so much noise about Cameron. Colliding about their EGOS, not being able to mash and Blah Blah Blah Blah I said stop it. Right, away that these two will work that these two will click. And they have and they have really well so far see. Wind. The New England Patriots signed Cam knew if you knew anything about football, you knew. It. Was To bring Cam Newton as a starter. Yes, he had to learn the offense. Yes. He had to pay his dues. Yes. He had a fit in and yes he had to do all the things that the Patriots are known to be about. But anyone who thought that shared sin of have shot to start over Cam Newton. Just simply doesn't know football. It's that simple Cam Newton is a former MVP and given his health as of late he has a chip on his shoulder because he was basically out of the national football only after the Carolina Panthers released it nobody wanted him. There are thirty two teams in the NFL, and out of those thirty two teams only one team wanted him won T. so thirty one other teams other than the New England Patriots said No. and. Now, some of them obviously have great quarterbacks already like the Seahawks have Russell Wilson and you know packers have. Aaron, Rodgers and so on. So obviously, they don't have an interesting candidate so you can take those teams out but in essence thirty, one other teams said, we do not want you Cam Newton. So to think that there's not a chip on camera shoulders, you'd be crazy. When you look at Cam, Newton, when I look at Cam Newton I see swear. There's the there's this Polish this dancing that he has gone on this confidence. This. There's this aura about him where other players walk into the locker room. and. You look at him and he commands your attention with his confidence at his size and because of his work ethic. That I guy in last guy out type stuff. That corny stuff but it's true. He's always been that way. He's just never gone the credit for being that way I don't know why but he's always been that way. It. was widely known when he was here in Charlotte that he that he had an excellent work ethic. He earns the respect of his team. So he commands it because he earns it because of how he works and then he ends up being the starting quarterback, the New England patriots in two weeks they just announced it and bill bell check never does these types of things. You never see bill belichick through these types of things he never announces it. In fact, he even said after he announced it that he said on not announcing any other starters. We know who the other starters are obviously but the only one that you need to know was Cam Newton, and why does this make sense will obviously because of our everything I just said, cam is a former MVP. He has a massive chip on his shoulder and he has a swag that commands the locker, room. To the point that the team actually voted him one of the three ofensive captains and that's the impressive part here. He's been there for a cup of coffee three weeks. That's it, and he gets named the captain that right there tells you a lot about him. Right. There tells you the respect that Belichick has for. It tells you a lot about his leadership ability. It tells you about his work ethic. It tells you that Bill Bill Check made the right decision and that he was one of only thirty one teams to one you can. and. Now, you're going to get rewarded for your hard work by being named Captain I. Love It I love it, and the Patriots are going to get rewarded because I believe cam has a lot left in the tank and they're gonNA get rewarded for making this decision. I've I've been saying this since day one. And as long as he stays healthy I think can do is going to be a wonder for the New England Patriots. But why was this obvious? Why did I know that this was going to happen Obviously, because of all of those things that I just said, but why was it obvious because bill check is sixty eight years old and bill bill is about one thing and one thing only winning Dolecek isn't about rebuilding live. Let let's try out some young guys. Let's take this experiment. Let's do some new things here. Get Out of here. No, that's not Bill Bell Jack. BILL BILL CHECK PRAXIS is to win bill checks. Course of action is to prepare every single player on his team whether it's cam new and who's brand new in the system or the guy who's been around for eight years to learn something new so that no matter the circumstance this this situation football that happens on a Sunday afternoon we're going to be prepared and we're GonNa win and WHO's the player who gives them the best chance to win to do that it's Obviously, we know that New England patriots or of meat like they used to be Tom Brady. But over the last couple of years when they were winning super bowls pretty much consistently and if not winning, they were at least in the Super Bowl pretty much consistently. And that's that's the excellent that bill belichick commands, and for those that believe that he would accept or expect anything other than that you guys are just fooling yourselves. You're just putting this notion in your head because you want them to be bad. I. Understand I'm not a fan I. Don't want them to be good I could care less about the pats. But I'm. I'm going to be honest to my listeners. You're lying to yourself if you felt that bill belichick because Brady left is gonNA expect anything else. So when can became available and ultimately once he signed with the pets, this was a no brainer that bill belichick was taking his campaign. He was taking his campaign. And even if he's just a bridge for a year or two until they figure out who the long term option is like the really long term plan like who's the next Tom Brady? You knew that he was taking him because bill doesn't rebuil- and the New England patriots are in that he sixty eight years old. He's not about to go through a rebuild and wait a couple of years until they can contend again no way it was unreal to think cam new in. Would it be the starting quarterback and here's the other problem that I have of this and I want everyone to listen here. We gave so much credit to Tom Brady. And we still do and I did Tom Brady and bill bell check right. They were synonymous with with each other Tom Brady and bill bell check who needs who who doesn't need to WHO's more responsible for the success. I mean, it's nonsense nonsensical conversation because in football, the ultimate team sport as I said it symbiotic. You gotTa have. Each other you can't you have to have them both. You cannot have the other. But Tom Brady leaves, and we make this about Tom Brady being you know going out on his his own trying to win a super bowl and have have fun somewhere else and I finally want to be surrounded by talent because over the years he's had and let's call it out. Let's let's be honest here. What he's had has been below average talent than some of these other teams with a lead quarterbacks in the national football league and that's just true. And clearly, he's done a lot more with with that lesser talent. But we wanted to. We wanted to praise him. Good Job Tom Brady you let you let the dynasty you wanted to go someplace and and go win. Go Win it your way and have fun doing it in Florida that that was kind of thing, and that's what you wanted to do and we kept talking about that. But we never talked about what bill belichick wanted. What Bill Belichick wanted to. How do we know bill bell check wasn't ready to try something new. How do we know Bill Belichick along with Josh mcdaniels offensive coordinator works saying we want to run something new this offense that they have now with Cam, Newton, can open up. As Greatest Tom Brady is. He holds this offense back. If he was still the quarterback because of his lack of athleticism football is changing guys. and Bill. Bill check out of any coach any coach. That we've seen is the greatest one to embrace change and do things that that you just don't normally think about whether it's how you use your defensive Lineman or linebacker remember Mike scored three touchdowns or something like that. And super bowls or you're running back who becomes alignment and confuses formations or whatever. Whatever Age Bill Belichick can get. He's going to use, and now that Tom Brady is no longer their quarterback and listen call this a hot take if you want it but I don't think it is at all but if Tom Brady was still there, qb. Thought to pick this team as my winner for the AFC. I wouldn't have the weapons are nowhere near good enough to have a quarterback that can not. Not, a knock against Brady. This this offense is not good enough. It's too dated. And I wouldn't pick them. But now bill chick has that different quarterback. There's a new age that he's ready to go after and that new age is, let's be different. Let's be athletic. Let's run or quarterback because if there's anything that he's watched over the last couple years, it's Padma mahomes be one of the ridiculously great athletic quarterbacks in football followed up immediately by Lamar. Jackson being probably the most athletic quarterback we've ever seen in the national football league history both of those guys want Mvp's and you know what they did for their offense. They made it explosive. The Kansas, city chiefs had one of the top offenses in the football and football and still do then the Baltimore Ravens come along and they had the most prolific rushing attack as a team that you've seen in NFL history. Lamar Jackson came into his rookie year they rushed for three hundred yards a game. You. Don't do that in the NFL. Three, hundred yards a game I'm not even like exaggerating it was three hundred yards a game the Baltimore Ravens average at the end of the more Jackson's rookie season. Obvious. A Lot. Obviously a lot of it was him. But he opened up these massive lanes for the running back because his athletic ability scared the defenses. It kept the defence is on their tones cam new and. Let Athletic Ability. Now, he isn't on the Mars level and I'm not saying that. But he has doubled threat because used athlete. That is enough to scare defenses and when you give that type of talent to Bella chick who knows what he can, who knows what he can come up with. And you know this always gets mixed up. But as much as we like to think about the New England patriots offense being a passing offense because the Tom Brady and that great orm that Brady's has. They run the ball. It's short easy completions and even if you're tossing it to set up the run. It's about doing the easy things. The simple things, the run game and Cam Newton gives the ability to do that. Times ten because now he can run it as well. Because now a he becomes a threat as well on the. Bill bill check just like Tom Brady probably wanted something new and different. From what they had been doing the last twenty years and that doesn't mean that because Tom left build he's GonNa have greater success or bill is now with Tom that he's going to have greater success but it's different. And you gotTa Give Bill. Credit. And we know this from the decision that he's made a quarterback, he's not ready to mail it. He's always always been about winning. This goes back to is giants days, and for those who even thought for a second that he's GonNa, lay down and let this division become the bills division or in four years become the jets division or the Dolphins Vision you're out of your mind. The only time. This won't be the New England patriots. Is When Bill Belichick is no longer the coach of the New England Patriots. Good Job Bill Belichick. Well, we knew Cam was going there for a reason I knew it. We knew he was going to be started. I tried telling him bill. I tried telling them some of my audience listen. But some of them. Just didn't want to listen to me but I said it from the store and I'm GonNa give myself a pat on the back for that one. This is the GMC football podcast.

If you have the weekend off, good for you enjoy relax take that time off. And do your thing do your thing we are heading into it Saturday here where I am recording and you guys will get this come Sunday afternoon. And then we will be officially into week one of the NFL and that's exciting I. Mean that is some exciting news. For a tough tough summer with no sports for half of the summer more than half the summer. A lot of you know just really awful things going on in the country right now we're going to get a glimpse of Pope. Glimpse of normal seebeck come Thursday night when the defending champs the Kansas City chiefs. Kick off against the Houston Texans in a stadium that I may have actually will have fans to. and. That's going to be pretty cool to see as long as Kansas City does it right as long as they make sure that the fans are wearing masks, their social distancing and making sure that they have a setup for people to exit and people to come in in a way where they're not all touching. You know side by side like a usual NFL game would be so. Remember also we are. Coming up at quarter number four, we're going to do our bold predictions for the twenty twenty NFL season. Now, you say water bowl predictions are. Those predictions where you jump out of your comfort zone a little bit right you get a little wild with it. You know they're sentiments, their ideas that you actually think could happen but it's a bit of a long shot like if the stars all line, this will happen. You understand what I'm saying. So they're my true predictions, their predictions that I feel or possible but a lot of things are going to happen to really make it make it a legit legit. Possibility where that prediction comes into fruition now. Bold predictions are fun. That's the whole point of its sports talk radio at its finest. I would love to hear y'all's bold predictions tweet at me at GSM see underscore. At Cave on underscore sports I did get some tweets from you guys last week, which is awesome and the tweets. Couple of the tweets were actually about y'all's predictions four, the two, thousand, twenty NFL season. So what I'm GonNa do is because I promised you guys, I'm GonNa read those tweets I will read them but I'm GonNa. Read them on next show because I wanted to fit with how it's going with the way we're. Narrating the show, right. So next show, I'm giving you guys my super bowl picks and I think it would be really cool if I give you guys by Super Bowl picks and then also say, Hey, well, these people also gave me there's on twitter and I'll shout your name. I'll show at your twitter handle to tell everyone to follow you guys and say, and we can compare picks. All right. So really appreciate you guys that. Gave them gave me those tweets and and keep them coming in and again stay tuned for next episode when I give you guys a shout out and we talk about, can we compare picks and see see where we're at and I'll tell you what some of you guys. have. Some really really interesting picks that I can't wait to talk about so. As I said come Thursday night the Kansas City chiefs the defending super bowl champions will be kicking off the ball against the Houston Texans. Now that means the Houston Texans. As of today, some breaking news coming in. Their store quarterback Deshaun Watson, we'll be playing that night on a brand new contract. Does Shawn Watson, and the Houston Texans are finalizing a four year hundred, sixty, million dollar deal that would be. Four. If I do my math right here, forty, million a year. Now, I'm not good at math. Okay, that will but that one I can do one was pretty easy. Okay. When it comes out on a flat number like that I can get it. All right. Usually I can get it off but usually, yeah, Nass not going to be not my best subject. So four years one, sixty, million, forty dollars a year. That's big time that is huge news of that puts to Shawn, Watson. Second in annual average among quarterbacks that puts him in mahomes money. There's only one other quarterback making forty million plus a year and that's Patrick Mahomes more making forty, five million. A year to Shawn Watson is now right behind him at forty, million a year, and then you have Russell Wilson at thirty five Big Ben at thirty four Jared Goff at thirty, three Aaron Rodgers at thirty three. Kirk cousins at thirty three course wins thirty two million DAK PRESCOTT AT thirty one and to round out the top ten matt. Ryan at thirty million okay so. That's the top ten quarterbacks on an annual average now. Watson gets four years hundred sixty million. He gets that forty million a year, and and this is this is why this is such big news because a couple of weeks ago this contract did not look like it was going to get done. They didn't they were a completely opposite sides of, but they were able to come together and did a deal and that is really really great news for Houston. Texans. Organization and Houston Texans Fans. Okay. Just Shawn Watson deserves every single bit of this. This guy since he's entered in the League has done nothing but when I mean since entering the year since entering the league in two thousand seventeen when he was the twelfth. Pick, which again we went through this last week was one of the biggest fails by a lot of teams that passed up on him. Including team in Jacksonville that is now going to be tried to take to get Trevor Lords another qb that's coming out of Clemson. Two thousand seventeen to show him Watson got hurt and he he? He played seven games. He he threw for sixteen hundred nine yards and nineteen touchdowns and eight interceptions in seven Games nineteen touchdowns in seven games is absurd. That that's so impressive also ran for two more on two, hundred, sixty, nine yards rushing two, thousand eighteen. He came back played sixteen games threw for four thousand, one, hundred, sixty, five yards and twenty six touchdowns, nine interceptions, and in two thousand nineteen threw for three, thousand, eight, hundred, fifty, two, yards, twenty, six, touchdowns, twelve interceptions, and two, thousand eighteen he added on five hundred, fifty, one yards rushing two, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety added on four, hundred, thirteen yards rushing and seven rushing touchdowns. This guy has can do it all those stats. He's two, thousand seventeen he was hurt obviously so. They only went forward twelve because he only played in seven games as a rookie since then he has won the AFC south back to back years eleven and five, two, thousand, eighteen, ten, six, two, thousand, nineteen. That's since he has played a full year for two years. Now he wins the division every year. All right and to your sample size is enough for me to look at this guy knows what he's doing. This guy is a great young quarterback I. Honestly think that I have him ahead of Lamar Jackson right now when it comes to just pure talent of his quarterback, obviously the more is someone that's going to dazzle and jump off your TV screen and and he's going to do all the running and stuff. But when it comes to one game, win it all I'm GonNa Take Patrick Mahomes, number one as our young quarterbacks but. Shawn Watson is right behind him and. The guy just he wins and he's been doing it. This is the special thing. He's been doing it without an offensive line. He's been getting beat up and running around for his life. But he's still been able to perform every time and that's what super impressive. Guys in two thousand and nineteen. He got last year got sacked forty four times in two, thousand eighteen. Sixty two times that should not happen as a quarterback. The Houston Texans have not done a good job by putting a good offensive line in front of him to have it. But but through all of that, and they're going to have to change that if they want him to be a Texan for life and if they want him to play fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, twenty plus years like the quarterbacks are able to play now. He's they've got to change that. But. He's been doing this with terrible offensive line and and every single time every single season, every single game I watch, it's just been more and more impressive, and he's just been getting better and better. This is well deserved contracts. Watson irked every bit of that contract and I know this is the type of contract that Dak Prescott warning. This is exactly what Prescott wanted. We heard it. Just Jerry Jones wanted to give Prescott a six year deal. A five or six year deal Jack wanted a four just like a watson so that he can reopen four years. The only problem is Dak, hasn't proved that he deserves this concept. If the Shawn Watson had the offensive line. That Dak Prescott had has had if to Shawn Watson has a Zeke Zeke Elliott like Prescott has had watson would probably be getting an identical contract to mahomes right now. Prescott needs to show. He can put the team on his bags like Watson has because Jerry isn't going to cough up that type of money does it But this isn't about Prescott. This is about Watson. This is an exciting day for Texans fans exciting day off for the Texans station. Congrats to the Shawn Watson Watch out because he is going to be a problem. For teams many many years now as long as Bill O'Brien gm doesn't totally screw things up not the coach I think Bill O'Brien the coach is a very good coach. He's done a lot with lesser talent before Deshaun Watson got there. But bill the GM not so much bill. The GM has some issues. As long as building GM bits himself straight now. Texans fans you guys should be happy. Today is a big day. well-deserved to Shawn. Watson. Or let's move on. This is the GMC football podcast I'm your host cave on Zombie. Into you guys on this beautiful Saturday. Hope everyone's having a great Labor Day weekend. Let's dive into the Tampa Bay buccaneers here the rich keep getting richer. We've heard that statement before we've heard that line before as the offensive juggernauts down in Tampa Bay at a new piece to the collection Leonard for Ned. It works out. Perfect. For litter forehead he doesn't have to leave the state of Florida. This is the perfect situation for for net. We have heard all the rumors about four net wasn't the best team fell asleep during film sessions. Look we get it. He he always was on an awful team. An awful team, and now he goes from a terrible team with terrible culture to a team with so much leadership team with a great leader in Bruce. A Bruce Arians. Team with great leadership and Tom Brady. That is how you rejuvenate a player's career. Also, speaking of Bruce, Arians players coached by the way someone that players love to play for other than Doug Marrone who players always. Have had issues with not all players but he's definitely had issues with players in the past Bruce Arians all players to play with him. This is how you. Rejuvenate. A player's career that has talent, but it hasn't worked out in the past right second chances are so key they're silky, and this is the best landing spot for for net to get that second chance because he has the town we went through this he produced and showed that talent on a bad team. He he's showed that and let's be clear here. Bruce Arians can come out all he wants and say that Ronald Jones is the starting running back. And nothing against Ronald Jones. He is a good young back in this league before net is going to win this job once he gets acclimated to the system. Some people forget but over the last three years, only five running backs have gone for two thousand, five, hundred rush yards and one thousand receiving yards for net is one of those. Now he goes to a good team with great leadership that has so many weapons. This is a great situation for for net. So I want to get that out of the way I. Now, let's talk about the box. What does this mean for the books? The books are officially in that conversation now as real legit super bowl contenders. But now, I'm getting to the point. Where we're, we're hearing all this Is it a super bowl or bust? That's what we keep hearing Oh. Look at all these weapons it's super bowl or bust. And it's starting to get there. Right? I. Mean. When you have this much talent, how can you not look at it that way? How can you not look at it that way and you know what? I'm actually going to say that it is super bowl bust. It is there's too much talent. They were already my pick to win the division. But now I'm starting to really believe that this should be a super bowl winning team for Tampa Bay Tom Brady and. Next episode on actually going to be giving you guys my super bowl predictions as I said because I'm going to be shouting out the twitter follower superbowl predictions as well. So stay in see if I actually believe that. They will be in the Super Bowl, we'll find out but I will say this. Brady has no excuses. No more excuses. This is the first time ever in Brady's career where he has to former top ten picks on the offensive side of the ball in Mike Evans and litter for net. and. It's not like they're old school former tops in picks. It's not like they're topped picks from ten years ago. These are players that just that either are still in their rookie deal or just re signed a new deal. He has a players coached. That will let him do what he wants offense to feel comfortable. He hasn't had that situation yet. Sir. Now it's in his hands. Two thousand wide receivers in in. Chris. God wouldn't Mike. Evans and that was one thousand yard receivers with James. Winston there who turned the ball over thirty times. His all time favorite targeting rob Gronkowski's there which by the way, some cool stats for you guys since CROC entered the League in two, thousand, ten Brady has posted a Qbr of seventy seven point six growth is on the field without rock. He's posted a Qbr of fifty eight point two. Brady and loves him some. And now he has grown with two other big tiny ends in OJ Howard and Cameron break I mean this team is one of the most stack teams on paper that I've ever seen. Do you guys remember last year when the Cleveland Browns were making all these news left and right? They added Odell Beckham they had Jarvis. Landry, they added cream haunted. Go with Nick Job. They had tightened David they were stacked. And so many people in the me you were picking them to go to the super. Bowl because of what they had on paper and I said, no, no, no, no stop stop. This is the NFL I don't care what you have on paper all those weapons they mean nothing to me. In less. You guys know about to say in less. That's right. Your quarterback performs at a high level. And I didn't trust Baker Mayfield to do that. I didn't think Baker. Mayfield was ready for that type of situation and I also didn't think their head coach at the time Freddie Kitchens was ready for that situation either either. This is a completely different situation. Okay because I know. That this quarterback is ready for this situation I've seen this quarterback handle pressure. Because if there's one quarterback in the league that knows how to handle hype for media before actually doing anything on the field. It's Tom Brady if there's one QB I trust that knows how to handle a target on his back because let's be real. All these other teams are seeing this all season. All these other teams have been watching how things have been going this off season and they're saying, okay okay. I want to hit them in the mouth I WANNA beat that Tampa Bay buccaneers team. You'll think the saints who've won the NFC south three years in a row. Now are saying this division, What's he doing? What will what's Tom Brady to an artisan? You'll say you don't think Matt. Ryan is going to want to try in that debate. Of It's just a a breeze and Brady that are League quarterbacks in this division you don't think he's GonNa WanNa show it. Teams are GonNa WanNa come at Brady, and the box this year and Brady knows that and he knows how to handle that. I trust braiding to be able to handle that situation because he has done it before there's no excuses for Tom Brady this year. I was I was fair to the browns last year. I, told everyone I said stop this nonsense putting way too much pressure on Baker. Baker he's in his second year isn't a lot of handle a team like this. And we won't the titans show. Please they came out smacked him in the mouth right away. All Right? Brady knows what to do. Brady had a team that went sixteen. He knows what he's doing. And there's no excuses for him because the books have gone all in on him, the books know that he's sporting three years old. Okay. They know that the vox know that they got rid of a younger to be who yet had a Lotta issues but they got rid of them for a forty, three, zero one and you what they said they knew that eventually father times going to take over. So we're not gonNA waste any time we're going all in right now and they stood by their work. I mean, did they stand by their were put together a roster where you have to give him credit? I mean, is it a hot take to say that this is the best offense Brady has been in. When you think of some of those rate New England teams. were. Built on their defense and they brady being great with average weapons or even below average revenue weapons at times, and then a great tied in Gronk. The one really good offensive team. We think of when we think of the Patriots and Tom Brady is that Oh, seven team that went undefeated and when you look at that team yeah, you had some good players and you had you had Randy Moss and no one on the box is as good as reigning boss. That's obvious. But that Patriots team is nowhere near as deep as this box team. That's not even a debate. And I get it. Brady. was much younger than much much younger but that's the thing. That's the that's been my whole point all along because of these weapons. Because of the depth on offense, he doesn't need to be thirty three or thirty five year old, Tom? Brady. He honestly just needs to be good. He doesn't need to be great. He just needs to be good and that's just the offense that we've been talking about. You know it reminds me a little bit of wind pay in Manning went to Denver. It really does. Because in the beginning. The was great. It was nasty. Prepay manning broke the touchdown record. He was throwing eight touchdowns a game. They were able to get it done though, and then they had to build it through the defense. Tom. Brady his arm. He didn't just have soldiers shoulder surgery like peyton manning was coming off A. So Tom Brady has these weapons, but he's ready to capitalize on it now. And again, that's just the offensive side of the ball. We have even mentioned the defensive side of the ball yet. which everyone is overlooking? Let's talk about the defense. Let's talk about that defense that's emerging. Let's talk about the last eight weeks of last season top ten and takeaways third in yards allowed talk about a defense that is going to complement the offense an offense that was third in points that through after only third in points and they threw thirty interceptions. A defense. That has one of the brightest defensive mind coaches in the game in Todd Bowles. A pass rushing unit that can get to the quarterback like no other cool. Young linebackers in Devon White. To secondary will be a problem. Secondary is full of young players and they're going to have to step up and get going. But Todd Bowles will get them there because this team. There's no holes in this team other than that secondary. So or the expectations getting too high not at all because this is what Brady wanted because Brady picked this team. Brady had everything to do with this team. When you do that the expectations are high and when you win six rings, the expectations are high and when you leave a dynasty. And the greatest coach of all time Bill Belichick you better believe that the expectations are high. and. Brady's GonNa have to capitalize on it. Because it is now super bowl or bust for the Tampa Bay buccaneers. This is the GMC football podcast I'm your host cave on Zombie.

We appreciate all of you guys tuning in as always You know who it is your hosts cave on Zombie, and we are entering quarter number three out halftime. Great Show. So four really just dove into. The Patriots in the former Patriot right The bill check in the New England patriots, and then the former Patriot the great Tom Brady and. It's going to be interesting I think if anyone asked in all of sports right now. What's the one matchup you love to get you know? I know the NFL podcast. But if you look around the sports world I mean I think a lot of us would love to see the Clippers Lakers battle in the western conference final I think that'd be awesome matchup. You'd have a lot of bad blood there you have. Historic Franchise in the Los Angeles Lakers versa. Clip Franchising in the clippers that have been non existent for for their entire. Entire span of being a franchise. But now they have a Guy Lynyrd that can change that that can be the first to bring its Heidel to that team Tha. That organization you know verse, Lebron that would be really good one. Some other ones, you know Yankees dodgers baseball that that's a big one that I think everyone would love to see because of the. The history behind those two franchises I mean the Yankees the most winning franchise in sports against the dodgers where you know I, mean baseball is is sitting there on their knees praying for that type of matchup because that's the ratings that the Galore the ratings Galore for sure. And then you have. The New England, patriots against the Tampa Bay buccaneers. Could you imagine if we get a super bowl that? That would be the best story line. Championship game in sports history. I mean imagine the talk and the questions leading up to that game. You have Tom Brady. Twenty years with one coach. That coach couple years ago tried to get rid of him and keep the young and up in Jimmy G. The owner had to step in and say, no, no no what is Brady do he proves the coach wrong by going and winning two more super bowls after that. Then Brady decides enough is enough. I'm out he goes to Tampa. And now, Bill check does it with new quarterback and Brady does it with new team that would be storylines like no other and and that it's just thought about that because we talking about those two teams and look again, I'm going to be giving my superbowl predictions next. next show. But I mean it's harder to see the patriots getting there. Again I think that they will make the playoffs but they just do not. Do not have the town on the offensive side of the ball to get there. Now Bella check is a very good coach and he knows how to make an incredible defense. And I would definitely be more confident if it wasn't for the eight defendants defensive players that have decided. Off Out because of COVID and understandably. So but that's going to be a tough that that's going to be a very tough challenge in and we'll see what happens but for. For for the books that's a very realistic. The books. Representing the NFC in the Super Bowl is a very realistic option. and. It should be something that they think that they have to do with the talent that they have. I. Haven't had an off season I get that. This is their first year together. Man I don't care. You have the best. You have the third best offense with James Winston as your quarterback. After throwing interceptions and you still have the third best offense. You better be ready to have the top five top three offense with Tom Brady who is going to get never never will throw thirty interceptions he won't even though ten. Tom, Brady does not turn that ball over and then you have a defense that that ended the year of third in yards allowed top five and takeaways that that's a good team right here there really isn't many holes on that on this team other than that young secondary and I have all the faith in the world and Todd Bowles coaching them up to very good coaches, Bruce Arians up and coming offensive coach Bryan left which and then that that defensive mind of Todd Bowles who's just A genius on the defensive side of the ball. So look there's no excuses for Brady. Brady's got to get it done. Brady's gotta get it done, and at the very least he has to make the playoffs. If he doesn't make the playoffs, this is a failure, a failure. There's too much talent now I started out saying you know what? He's forty three years old this might be his final year. He really my head that drop off because we never know with athletes. They look so good one day the next day they fall off the sports is. But. Brady takes care of his body and Brady pick this team. He didn't get traded to this team. He picked handpicked this team he hand picked this roster other than the pieces that we're already there but he he added you know he was a big reason why Shawn McCoy, he is a big reason why for nets came he's a big reason reason why rock is here This is his job and he he'd better make four. You'd better take full advantage of it. And at least make the playoffs. But in my mind, this is this is a super bowl or bus you got to get to the Super Bowl if you do if you lose you lose to the mahomes or or or someone like that. Then okay. I will not call that a failure I had a success. But you gotta get to the Super Bowl. Super All right let's go around the NFL. Now let's let's look at all the news and notes of what's going on before we the NFL season starts were officially eight days away. From when I'm recording this on Saturday so will be even closer and that's eight days away by the way. Until the Sunday. Of NFL football. So until game one who were way closer David. We're we're we're five days away. If you want to look at it that way we're five days away from opening kickoff Kansas, city chiefs, I Houston Texans but we're eight days away from that Sunday Football Lore for Balka Lor. I love at I love that and I can't wait. So let's let's go around the league and let's start in Washington with the Washington football team on they have officially released off Future Hall of fame running back Adrian Peterson and I want to start with this. I want I want to take this conversation in two different ways. Okay. This is not a surprising. This is where I want to start about this. This is not a surprising move at all and I it's not surprising to me and it shouldn't be surprising move to you I. Don't know why. But every year people always get all up in arms and Shaath NFL teams like go of veterans because, right right before the season starts. This is normal. It happens every year because it's always been happening every year. They get through chain camp their time make their final roster cuts and someone on the team a couple players on the team better younger stood out. So. They let go of the veteran because they want the younger the youth player to get their touches. This happens all the time especially with teams that are young and not very good. All right. and. That's what Washington is. Adrian Peterson is still a good running back. That's not what this is about. I mean last year he ran for eight hundred, ninety, eight yards and five touchdowns averaged three average excuse me four point three yards a carry at thirty five years old I want to add. He can still play which is very impressive. He definitely can be a contributor to another team out there there's no doubt about that but why would Washington keep him There's no reason for Washington. Keep him other than just having a famous name on their roster to bring in fans and fans aren't going to be in the stands this year in Washington as of now. So, what's the point they're young team they need to give those touches, Tanto gifts in the rookie out of Memphis who I really liked by the way in all reports so far coming out of training camp is that he's been turning heads with how well who's playing that was a huge huge reason why they'd probably let him go they. They have bryce love who was the standout running back out of Stanford these are young guys. That can be developed. Best by playing. An Adrian Peterson. Also, known his all day baby. Being there he him being there just takes away touches from those guys. So so this news was not a surprise to for me don't think it should be for you either when you're on a team that doesn't have high expectations and you go through all training camp and the coaches and the GM they see how you guys are performing training camp they see that you have a lot of young talent, but clearly, it's not going to be one of those years where you're going to win a lot. What, what are you charge you? You turn to developing those young players. And that's the name of the game there and and that that's why that. So that's one part of the conversation. Okay. I think it's a great move for Washington I, really like Gibson the the rookie out of Memphis I think bryce loves a good running back and this for Washington fans you shouldn't freak out. This is good news and I love Adrian Peterson and he should find a home somewhere but now I want to get into this part of the conversation. The other part of this. And when this news came down it got me thinking. That I know Adrian Peterson says he wants to keep playing and I believe he will keep playing. For at least one more season but but he says, he wants to keep playing for for three or four he said but it got me thinking. Where does Adrian Peterson rate in the all time list of running backs you know this is intriguing to me as of right now. He ranks fifth all-time in in yards for running backs. Okay. So He is fifth all-time for yours. By running backs as of right now, and again he wants to keep playing. So so where does Adrian? Peterson rape right now and I don't know that. Anything is going to you know between now and the rest of his career is probably going to do markedly changed his historic place right? Like yeah he wants keep playing. He might tell you on a couple more yours here But but I don't think that's GONNA. Change like Oh. Does he jump from five to one or five to two or five to three? If anything it just moves them a couple of spots but this is all opinion based anyways he he's a future hall of Famer, but these are fun conversations. So where is he on the list of the greatest running backs ever to play the game? There are four who have rushed for more yards than him in NFL history. That's Emmett Smith Walter. Pay In frank core who by the way still playing at age thirty seven and that is remarkable. Barry Sanders. Of those, I would put Emmett Smith. Walter pay pay in Barry Sanders Adrian Peterson? Almost that that's not arguments me. I would definitely have Emmett Smith Walter Payton and Barry Sanders ahead of Adrian Peterson on the list of all time greg running backs, and while Frank Gore is a great player and a hall of Famer and for playing such a tough position, a position and take so many heads it's remarkable how long he has been able to play it's it's unprecedent and AP's getting up there too in age but you know I don't have free Gore over a P as an all time better running back I. Think AP had more of an impactful career and was just But that's taking anything away from Franco like Frank Gore is amazing. He he's an anomaly like running backs will never run for as late as he has in further out of yards he has. So third all time in rushing yards but again, I think has had more talent so I put a p over him. But. Then you gotta go down and look at the rest of this list. Then you get to Jim, Brown Jim Brown's eleventh on the all time rushing list I. Don't think AP is as good of a running back Jim Brown I think Brown arguably the greatest running back ever. And the only reason Jim Brown is down as at eleven with twelve, thousand, three, hundred, twelve yards because he only played nine seasons he been decided to retire early when he could have played much much longer. That's the only reason why he's down. But Jim Brown is the only player in NFL history to average average over a hundred rushing yards per game. That's remarkable. Now, I'm not old enough to have watched him brown on that. But I think I've obviously seen highlights and Youtube and film and all that stuff but I think you know to put any running back ahead of Jim Brown on the all time list is probably a mistake. Emmett. Smith Walter pay in. You know there there's some guys that are out there. You can really rank with him but Jim Brown's above a P. Adrian Peterson all by list. So. So I'm putting him ahead of Adrian Peterson. So that's four running backs in front of ap at this moment, right so as Adrian Peterson, the fifth best running back full-time is he top five running back I mean think of all time or do you put some of the other guys ahead of him? Well, let me read you all the names round out the top eleven in rushing yards in NFL history. In it Smith Walter in frank or Barry Sanders Adrian Peterson Curtis. More Ladainian Tomlinson Jerome Bettis. Eric Dickerson. Tony Foster and Jim Brown. Okay. So I'm just throw names out there that are on this list here amongst the most productive runners full-time one name that really interests me here and I think a lot of the audience that is listening this probably is the name that you guys all think of too often when it comes to debating his career AP's that's Ladainian Tomlinson. He. He's definitely more of my time as a running back. They didn't necessarily play in the same timeframe. When AP came into League into seven Dany Thomason was on the back end. He ended up playing I. Think like four more seasons but they were both you know he was towards the end of his career but the thing about AP and Lt. They were both similar runners. You I mean AP. was definitely more of a I'm GonNa run you over and just keep on truckin and not look back while at. Would you you out of your shoes like it was nothing? But they both had this certain type, a swagger about them that I love and they both won a they were with one in VP's. They're actually the last two. Known quarterbacks to win this war. And and you know one thing that I'll never forget about Adrian Peterson was that two thousand, twelve season that two thousand, twelve season coming off a torn, acl. The year before he rushed for two, thousand, ninety, seven yards, two, thousand, nine, hundred yards and had twelve touchdowns. It gives me chills thinking about that season. It was magnificent. He won the MVP your and and again was the last time a non qb one that MVP since then it's been. UV. and Lt won it back in two thousand, seven but AP was the last non qb to win the war tells twelve. It's been all qb sits and also something about that season. And this this never gets talked about enough. He changed the way Adrian Peterson. Changed the way athletes are expected to recover after a major injury. He really did. I. Mean Think about it. The. Guy Tears his ACL. Two thousand eleven. So he tears ACO two thousand eleven. But this is the crazy thing. He tears it in December. He tears his ACL and MC L. in December of two thousand eleven season one month away from two thousand twelve. But somehow he makes it back on time. In time for that twenty, twenty it that's not human. Human at all. So to be able to tear your ACO in December and be back that next September swats seven months. Eight months. He change the way people people look at athletes when they have serious injury, he changed the way athletes look at themselves. When they have a series injury, they feel like they could come BECO-. Because it's not like if you just came back and did nothing or just had normal season, it'd be like, okay. Yeah, you know Heaton that's normal. He hurt himself. No, he comes back in less than twelve months. And runs for two, thousand yours a season and wins the most valuable player in the NFL. Dad That's special and and that's awesome and I look I know that AP's not retiring and he's GonNa still play and I love that. So I try to talk like Oh he's retiring and all that but he's getting released. We don't know he's thirty five years old. It's fun to talk about this stove because he deserves to be talked about this because he had her hall of fame running back career and he's going to go down as one of the best running back ever. So where do you have? To know where do you guys have rank in your list of top running backs EC in your top five he's in my top five I'm telling you right now he's in my top thought I've got emmett Smith Jim Brown, Walter Payton. Barry Sanders. And Adrian. Peterson I. Love Me. Some lt are really do I. wanted to put them in there but he he's in, he's in my top five. And you know. Guys like you know OJ Simpson who had an extraordinary great great player. He might have been one of the most talented running backs but obviously, his career was cut short because of all fueled. Thanks to that hurt him. But he had some talent where he have broke a Lotta records Jerome Bettis was so impressive to me. Because he was a different type evacuees a big back, but still was able to turn on the jets and and Ron like no other. So hear from you guys. Am I leaving someone out? Let me know on twitter and again. I do think someone who's GonNa Pick Adrian Peterson I really do he said last season he wanNA play for four more seasons I. Don't know about all that but he did run for he was you know he was less than two hundred yards short of almost being a thousand yard rusher last year I mean four point three yards a carry that that's not bad. This guy could still play. He will definitely have an impact for some team out there who who will eventually pick them up especially in a year with Kovin and you don't know what's going to happen week to week. So that that's Adrian Peterson News. Again, loving on twitter where he is in your top ten top five is he in your top five of all time running backs on and if not who who's in your top five? Why is he nine your top five at Cave on underscore sports? She S MC underscore sports club so that that took up a little bit more time than I thought but I'm glad that we got to go through it. So what we're GONNA do is we're gonNA take a quick break now, and then when we come back, we will finish up the news going around the NFL the bears have named a starter. Did they make the right? Did they make the right choice? To teams are going heavily actor Jimmy Davis cloudy I'm going to tell you why one of those teams must must sign him if they want any chance to do what they want to do this year with their expectations are this year and then to end it, we're going to get into. The Board Cave on predictions at twenty twenty baby and I can't wait for you guys to hear that and then of course, we'll end it with our seventh. Sixth and fifth best players entering the twenty twenty season. Don't go anywhere. We'll be right back after this is the GMC football podcast. Check, out this build around the women. MMA.

You know who it is I am your host cave on his army. Thank you everyone for listening as we head into the Red Zone, the twenty yard line ready to score one less touchdown before we end the show because it's quarter number four, quarter number four, put up the fingers as always throw up the four fingers as always with me. I've got mine up here. And I. Hope You guys enjoyed all the segments so for. I, think we covered a lot of football stuff. I wanted to make it strictly football today, and that's what has been an exciting because this is what every show is going to be like so far you know we just talked about Adrian Peterson and and some of the amazing accomplishments that he's had over over his career playing at thirty five years old now and hit him in. Frank or really there anomalies when you look at running backs, I mean. You just don't see a running back at thirty five years old that can put up eight, hundred, Ninety, eight yard seasons. I mean, you just don't see that and even for Frank Gore you know he he's playing he was on the bills and he didn't get as much touches last year. But. He's still put up six hundred yards. You know call it a hundred. Thirteen passes for a hundred yards. Two rushing touchdowns those to have had just just phenomenal seasons and and again I don't have. Frank. Gore my top five. He's right outside of it just just. So impressed with the long jetty Chevy of his career. But Adrian, Peterson's in my top five Adrian Peterson is a special special guy. I remember all the way back when he was that. Oklahoma and he was just running people over at Oklahoma and when he was coming out of that draft I thought this is one of the best running backs I've ever seen and he ran angry that's the thing he would always run angry. I. Always remembered him as someone that would just. Like you guys ever see those highlight films where mainly this is in movies, but it happens sometimes. You get like five players holding onto a running backs like hips and they're just like standing still like moving their legs like they're trying to do like like they're trying to run and their their legs are so big. They're such a piece that they ended up moving the whole pile. That's why I always think of Adrian, Peterson because that's how he runs. He runs angry he would always have those big quads that he just could run you over and wouldn't look back and then he also could turn on the jets and shoot you out of your shoes of. So that's what I love AP and again I know he's not retired in relief if if a team that is a contender. They should pick them up. They really should because he can produce he's not someone that's going to complain if he doesn't get touches, he he's just wants to be out there playing that's all he's not going to. Warrant a big contracts he play for cheap deal. Probably. The veteran's minimum at this point and he's someone that can help your backfield. There's no doubt about it so Really, really awesome career by Adrian Peterson and even though he's now retiring I thought that right when he came up and I heard Washington was releasing him it made me think of man is he a top five running back of all time? And he isn't. He is in my opinion and I want to know what he is in years hit me up on on twitter at GSM underscores sports or actually boys homepage at cave on his army or excuse me at cave on underscore sports cave on underscore sports. Remember next week, we are going to get into our super bowl predictions were going to give you guys are MVP predictions are offensive player of the year, our defensive player of the year our rookie of the year. Our head coach of the year. We're GONNA give you all of that and we're also going to do something on. I think we'll. We'll probably do this either. Tuesday's podcasts or Saturdays podcasts where we're going to do the teams that need to get off to a hot start. It look in the NFL there's always that year where a team starts off really hot and goes from beginning to end just having a fantastic season kind of like the forty niners last year there's also that team that gets off to a really good start and fizzles out halfway through. And then there's that team they could solve to really bad start and interns on the jets halfway through. You know I'm going to talk about the teams that need to get off to a fast start whether they're coaches on the hot seat whether the roster they have is just not on in the position where they can get off to bad start the divisions to talk you. You know you can't get to behind Dame's whatever it is have to get off too hot starts to stay tuned for that will be something we'll talk about but I, want to keep going around the NFL here before we get into the bold predictions of twenty twenty and the seventh six and fifth best players in the entire NFL going into this twenty twenty season. So, we'll get into that. Now, I do want to go around the league and look at all these updates and the news that's coming out about every player every team of. The big things because again, I want everyone to be updated in and just talk about some of these stuff because this is a big deal like this one right here I just an awesome story that just keeps on giving us the great news and that is Alex. Smith makes Washington's football teams fifty, three man roster two years after that catastrophic leg injury that's remarkable. You know he he had to come back. He was deemed healthy enough to go was deemed healthy enough to practice. He's still hasn't participated from what I've read and been told in a full padded eleven eleven workout yet but. I told that I was told that he was worked he worked hard work really hard. He showed potential and they're keeping him on the roster. They used him at other drills including nine nine situations in which he faced to pass rushers and was forced to move in the pocket and on one occasion he he sprinted away from from the rush to his right and fire to pass on my I I remember getting a note about that seeing video of that. So so the fact they see really. Endured one of the most gruesome injuries we've seen I've seen one of those gruesome injuries I've ever seen for sure and then for him to come back and make this team is just such good such a feel good story that I love to see. Congrats to Alex Smith for for all the hard work to get him back in him making the roster. So. That's awesome. Now, I want to move to this today Wien clown. To dating cloud. We are now less than a week away. Well for the Sunday games were eight days away but less than a week away from game one. For opening night of week one right and today cloudy is still not on a team listen I today even cloudy gets hurt and I know he's asking for way too much money. This guy is one of the best defensive. Ends. In all of football how can he? When he is in a game, he is one of those people that rex the game without even having to do a earn a stack or one stat line like. I get that most fans they watch and they look at what happens right? They look at D. he set the quarterback how many sex do you get the quarterback? You can't do that with Janie being cloudy 'cause he's Nice. There will be seasons where he racks up double digit sacks and stuff like that. But what you? Does best is. What he does That doesn't count in the stat box the way he rushes the passer, the attention. That he brings from the offensive line that then opens it up for the other. rushers the other pass rushers on the on the defensive line. The way he can force a fumble the way you can take it up run with it in the end zone like we saw that Monday night game Seattle over San Francisco last year. He is a beast and the fact that he's not a team is still pretty mind blowing to me, but it looks like it's there's two teams that are going hard after. It's the saints and the Titans. Now, there's no surprise about either of these teams especially, the saints. First of all, if you was smart, he would take the titans because the titans are coached by Mike variable who is a former defensive line, a defensive winding who has coached dating cloudy before when he was on the coaching staff in Houston and He knows he has a sister that fits perfect for Geneva and cloudy. So he might cloudy might have to take a pay cut to go there blunt. He's going to have such a good season there that he'll earn his big box this next off season if I was him, I would take the titans because the system they have the system that they run is perfect for him and it makes sense and if I was the titans, I'd be willing to throw a little bit of extra money to make sure I get him now now, the second team. Is. The new. Orleans saints. This is obvious that the New Orleans saints are trying to go after cloudy. Why? Because the New Orleans saints have been trying to go all in to win the Super Bowl for three years in a row now they have done everything they can, and it hasn't worked out. But now they're in a situation where they need to pay their storing back Alvin Kamara. And they also want page David Kline. Why would they not do both especially, why would they not pay Alvin? Kamara let let me just this is drew brees final year. He he I know he's been saying that over and over but this is really this finally you're okay. Alvin Kamara. or I will we'll talk about staving cloudy here. Okay. David cloudy as I just said he, he's a he wrecks happen. Okay. So so we know what he can do when you have Cam Jordan on that line already. Okay and then you add you add cloudy with it. You have a couple other pieces if good linebacking core in your secondary's pretty good. He's perfect for that teams. Well, the titans is a better fit, but it makes sense for New Orleans now. When it comes to. Kamara. Camara is GonNa want big box. He's GonNa want not McCaffrey money but right below it. Zeke money fifteen, million, fourteen, million, thirteen, million, a year. The Saints Will Not win the Super Bowl. They won't even get close to the super bowl without Kamar. Okay. `Camorra can do it. All Comoro can catch it just as good as he can run it. Camara is a ten touchdown running the ball and tin touchdown receiving the ball kind of guy. If they use him the right way I'm not even kidding. He's Seven hundred yard rushing the ball seven hundred yard catching the ball kind of guy if they used in the right way which they have. This is why though they should sign the book. This is what? For three straight years. Now, the saints have been going all year all in every single you're going all in because they think breeze is going to retire. Well, breeze just keeps on coming back just keeps on coming back. But now this is really as file year as he says. But because they kept going all in. The same Sir sitting here today was into the sitting here today seventy million dollars over the cap for next season. Already, they're already sitting here today for next season seventy, million dollars over the cat show you're screwed financially whether you pay Kamara or the you pay cloudy or not. So you might as well pay him. You might as well go all in because you guys are going to be screw no matter what and it would sure look a lot better paying that seventy. Million over the cab next year. If you have a super bowl super bowl ring to go with it. Now I think you pay both those guys and that's not going to make. You're still not GonNa Win Superbowl to me. You're still not GonNa win the bowl. Okay. That just you're not. I don't see it I think drew brees has fallen off too much and I don't think Jason Winston is GonNa come in and be able to do a teddy bridgewater did last year but. If, this saints fully believe in their team which they do and they know this last year with brees which it is. Go Wall in because you already are all. This is the GMC football podcast. Thank you everyone for listening. We are going to move on to be bold predictions. Now did WANNA talk about Matt Nagy and the starter, but we will get into that next show because we do not have time. But as you guys have I'm sure heard Mitchell trubisky as the starter and this is smart decision. This is a decision that had to have happened. You had to have done this. If you're Ryan pace the GM if your head coach Matt Nagy, and if you're the bears organization. We'll get into that more though but staff. It's time for you to keep that job and keep nick foles on the sidelines. Now, let's get into the bold predictions. Remember bold predictions. Are, predictions. That can happen. If all these stores align their little out there. There little out on the edge but they're fun and it's possible I one. I bowl prediction for cave on the cave on bold predictions. Matthew. Stafford will have his best NFL season of his career this year. Last. Year Matthew staffer before he got injured. Through for two, thousand, four, hundred, ninety, nine yards. Eight Games in. He threw for two, thousand, four, hundred, ninety, ninety, nine yards, nineteen touchdowns and five interceptions with a passer rating of one. Oh, six and a completion percentage of sixty four point three, eight games in they were three, four one. Three four with losses to the chiefs by four points on the last second play losses to Green Bay by one point. Okay That team this year he now has staffer has Kinney golladay which I predict to be one of the best receivers in the lead. He already ended the year last year with the league-leading touchdowns in eleven I. think he keeps that he has Morgan Jones who is also a phenomenal number two receiver, and then they got out of Georgia. The running back. De'andre sweat too I really like and he'll go with Kerryon Johnson very well, who also is very good running back out of Auburn. Who got her last year too okay and then they had the big boy both scarborough to they need. So I like, Matthew Stafford. He has the weapons around him. And I think that lie I bowled prediction is that Matthew? Stafford, will have the best NFL season of his career come twenty twenty. The next bowl prediction caves bold prediction lives on it is the Pittsburgh steelers will win the AFC north. Now remember by real prediction I have both were winning it but I have Pittsburgh right behind them, and then I have them making the wildcard spot bold prediction. If everything lines up, Pittsburgh steelers will win they ask you listen to this stat. Ben Rothlisberger is a hundred and ten wins two to ten losses when his team scores, twenty points or more. Ben. Rothlisberger has one hundred ten wins in his career to ten losses. So one hundred, ten to ten when his team scores Twenty points from boy. You know how many points per game that sewers defense gave up last year nineteen points per game. That is a really good defense. They were eight and three last year when they score ten points that's it. If they could just fourteen ten points last year they won because that defense was so good and that was with two QB's that are awful and that's putting it kind. Okay. Putting kind duck hodges and Mesa rule, you put Big Ben under that under center with those weapons with Juju getting better with James Washington with Deontay. Johnson. With James Connor with Jalen Samuels and in that defense with Jay Djing what make of its Patrick Devon Bush signed me up for this team to win the AFC North as a bold prediction next one. This one's good Aaron Rodgers in his is in his last year in Green Bay and we'll forces way out after this season. Aaron Rodgers is in his last year in Green Bay and will force his way out after the season. Look the stars align on this one they do they drafted your number one overall. Rogers is GonNa unless he went to the Super Bowl and even if he wins the super bowl. Why stay here I got you noticed your. But guess what you drafted a guy behind my back. When I just took you to the NFC championship game last year now. This will rogers last year and green big bulky next one. Hayden hearst. Titan required by Atlanta this off season will lead all tied ends touchdowns this season. That's right. Nobody uses big titans that can play the middle of the fuel better than natty ice, nobody. Last year they had Austin Huber. As their the Falcons had Austin who says they're tidying? He had seventy five catches for seven, hundred, eighty, seven yards. Ten point five yards a catch for six touchdowns and he got hurt. Okay he didn't play the last month of the season. To do all that that's what Matt Ryan does this with Titans okay. Also left you into. Cleveland incomes hate in hearst who last year eight hearse put up thirty catches for three hundred, forty, nine yards in two touchdowns. That's only thirty catches that catch more will double to at least sixty catches. Okay I think that hated hearse will end up one of the top five tight ends in the in all of football the end of the season. So fantasy players look out for him later in the draft and I think he could end up if all things align. Leading the League in tight ends for touchdowns. That is my bold predictions. For the twenty twenty NFL season I hope you guys enjoyed them and now let's move on. To? The best players in football remember last week if you haven't heard. The tent ninth and eighth best. Player heading into the best players heading into the two thousand twenty season today. We're now going to do the seventh sixth and fifth best NFL players and then on Tuesday podcast, we will do the fourth. Third Second and first best players heading into the twenty twenty season right before that Thursday night kickoff starts so. Number seven and just to refresh everyone's memory. Last week we had Michael Thomas Number ten we had cluele MAC number nine. We had Stefan Gilmore. Number Eight. Number seven McCaffrey best running back in all sports only running back to make this top ten list Christian McCaffrey I wanted to go a thousand yard receiving thousand yard rushing ever as. The Guy can do it. All the guy can literally be the heartbeat eighteen this thinner of the team and they can don't around him because he is that good. He can run between the tackles him run outside the tackles he can catch the ball through slant. You can catch the ball just as a little drop-off out of the backfield and can even run routes as a ride wide receiver. Can do everything. He's one of the best running backs. I've ever seen play. And he's perfect definition of do it all play? He'll do it all whatever you tell them to do it. He'll do it. That is my seventh best player heading into this year and I think he has even better stats or close to it with teddy bridgewater in there because Teddy Bridgewater is going to be doing a lot of doping off and just getting the. Ball out of his hands to Christian McCaffrey six best player the guy that got the big box today to Shawn Watson now I already, Reggie guys all of his stats earlier. So when we talk when we talked about him getting that four, hundred, sixty, million dollar deal. So I'm not going to bore you with those stats again, but this is just simple. He's a winner. He's a winner at his age. He is one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Already he's a top five quarterback in the league already better than guys like drew brees Tom Brady at the. Older he's better than them now and eventually one day he might be the best quarterback in football and him in Mahomes and Lamar. Jackson will be battling for the AFC for many years to come to Shawn Watson. Is the sixth best player in football number five, Julio Jones, the highest wide receiver ranked right of Michael Thomas. By Jones's the best player in football, and he is undoubtedly the first best receiver in football I get it. Michael. Thomas has the stats I. Get it. Michael Thomas has the catches. Julio Jones. First of all the Falcons have more targets Sir Matt Ryan Spreads The ball around much more than drew. Brees does drew brees just keeps on dumping it to Thomas. All, Time Julio. Jones if you guys if I guarantee you ten scouts. To pick a receiver whether you want speed physicality. Great hands route running ability. Who Do you want in the NFL I guarantee you at least eight out of those ten would say give me Julio Jones because he can do it all. He has the hands he has the speed, but he has the physicality to also get off the line and do an knock you over. Julio Jones's the best wide receiver in football. I don't care. If you think this is too high for a wide receiver. He is an impact on the team because even when he's not catching the ball, he's drawing a double team which gives Calvin Ridley and Hayden hearst and Todd Gurley and Russell gauge all these other players on the Falcons, wasp roster to give open and the best thing about him is he's a true superstar that does not complain. He is team for sky. He's not gonNA complain if he doesn't have ten touchdowns, he's not GonNa Complain. If he doesn't get ten catches because he knows at the end of the day, he's a beast and he's GonNa get his. But. It needs to be spread out for the team to win and he's perfectly fine with that. Julio Jones is my fifth best player heading into the twenty twenty season. This is the GMC football podcast.

Emergency Episode: Dynasty 2.0?

"Love this podcast. Support this show through the cast supporter feature. It's up to you how much you give. And there's no regular commitment. Just click the link in the show description to support now. This is christine brown. And while i have to listen to this podcast as my motherly judy. You have the choice not to my son sometime. Say some naughty things when they're trying to be funny but really they're just being stupid. You still want to listen. Go right ahead. i am not your walked back. Tapes dies podcast emergency episode because This is worth interrupting our season for. I think boys should we do the emergency weather service noise. Magma so obnoxious what is it. The weather service noise hit us with it again. You know your monkey. Steve can cut it and then redo it could. Yes another thing. I hate about those when they do it on the tv and they have like robot voice doing it. Why can't you just have a human make that. Like say the words and then just play that i think will they do round here. We want you to actually read it. Live or you want a human voice. Is that of a robot. Take that much effort to make it less obnoxious than what it is. I think noxious to grab your attention. Yeah right now. What they really do is get your voice to do it because that really obnoxious. Aw goodwin we are. Talking is not even football season. But i feel like tom brady left this offseason which we did an emergency episode for and this season bill ballot check decided to take that personally and has signed brady much the entire free agency field of players. Would you say now i would. I'm going to say that. Billy's until this point this is thursday march eighteenth so they've signed pretty much everybody fucking wanted to starting with Even before free agency started before the quote unquote legal tampering period started the traded. They traded back four trent brown so they re traded for him. But i don't know the best way to word that recreated again i think trade it again if we re reacquired players who've been treated twice brought him back in the fold so he's that's why some of gillett of foxborough. That's why i've my dion ranch jersey on today in honor of patriots that have left and you have their jersey and then they come back. And you're like whoa. Yeah back in style baby weight. Not or patrick o. Harris cares his. Mom is like they gotta wear this dolphins one in the trash. She didn't by dolphins on. Who you kidding. Yes they've had a busy offseason so far because they've also resigned bunch players as well including quarterback cam. Newton was thoughts on that. Yeah your name dropped fourteen million number. Everyone freaked out right. I've million more about it. All upside no. No downside paid five million last year you bring them back the same price and see what else he can do with and put some people around him. Let them have a second year in the system with maybe an off season. You would hope that last year will if you run that fluoride again. Maybe it's a little higher. Because all the guys i signed but right and you know aside i think we should. I think we should close with this question. You know because that's ultimately what quarterback exactly that's the that's the only like pending questions. I think we should have that discussion after we talk. Now we'll take two but what we've done to train team really changes that question iraq. Exactly what the new team would sorta look like all different moods they're non cam. Yeah so the big splash was first thing in the morning when the patriots when legal tampering started. They signed the top. Two tight ends. Well it's on the top tight ends and then the next morning this signed the other top tight end right. So smith from The titans twenty five years old. He's been in. The four years. Has kind of a aaron hernandez vibe if you will minus the mercury stuff on on the field air nokia wall stuff. That was like civil much of who he was. He was minus be gabe murdering people and committing suicide. He's exactly like right yeah he. He's a spitting image on the field if you wear his eighty one. I don't think it'd be able to tell them apart. I don't know he's beefcake big that dude. This europe beefcake molly. But he's not but he's like he's the shift ear of the two hundred. Henry's the the road grader. Isn't he the the underwear talking about one. Hundred henry fits the the grog role more like the in line. Run blocking type of tight end. Who can catch passes as well. Jonnu smith is more of like that guy. You can split wide. Put anywhere you want. Wind up in the backfield handed off to him. That sort of thing run screens to him more of a more of an athlete. That a stick though he's like decay metcalf where it's like. I haven't. I haven't seen the shirt off. So can you get how. How many cesar you putting on that thick or just google it dude. He looks like a linebacker without a shirt off. It looks like a middle linebacker is. Analyses is naked society my waist. So is that is that like a three c sick aggravated but just extremely thick nice. And he'll still look like a midget next to trent brown. Yeah brown's forgot how acid is until sometimes you see pictures of but it was awesome. You could see it in games. He was just so much more massive than everybody else. Here's when he was here. How big is he also question. How much did the raiders. pay him. i mean. They spent a shit ton. He wasn't evergreen the super quick to two years. He's six foot eight three hundred fifty nine pounds. How big is how. Big is shaquille. O'neal seventy four to is he. He's definitely seven four seven foot one heavy. Come on gimme. Gimme a stats. Seven four one. Three twenty five tram brown is six eight three fifty nine john. Jonnu is six three two fifty like he's looking huge. These are some big is the browns earnings by ear. The patriots was one point. nine million. Then the raiders. I was fifteen and a quarter rare second year is twenty one and a half and this series back on like eleven million elegance actually been detailed out yet. Yeah about ten eleven million. That's what i thought. Yeah so it's a big chunk. Less is more than half of what he made last year in cash. And so this is kind of. I mean greg saga when here. This is the genius of bill belichick where it almost feels like. He and i don't know if you'll ever mid to a kind of like almost punted on last year as a way to put himself in a better position to build a team this year by kind of just playing alessio without putting a lot of weapons on the field you know cam was on short money and they didn't they just like drafted a bunch of guys and just put them out there like the tight end position for instance like they just put out first year guys said right is let's see what you can do. And he didn't do much and didn't really matter because they didn't have a lot going forward with all the opt-outs and everybody leaving and all of that but that led to this year the team being in such a good position in a year where because of the covid and everything the patriots have or the league itself. The salary cap is shrunk to. Everybody has to let go of a lot of players which floods the market. The free agent market with a bunch of hiring guys may be used to seeing an in a normal year with nobody being able to afford it. Because i think at the start of this year the saints were sixty something million dollars over the cap because of how low it was today. There's been cut guys left in sixty six and aggravated. Actually kumasi under in eighty. I just thought right now. I think you're right now. I think of the same thing but what if planning for post breeding world for lease six years right no well. He's been pain post brady forever. It's going to be on his mind. Yeah in this is seems to be. The opportunity meets that plan i. I don't know if last year wasn't intentional. Will hunt on the whole season. But it was like we're not gonna fuck. We're not gonna do any crazy. Cat moves. rose much cap space into this next offseason. Because i think it's dried data shit on a dead money and they just decided like well. There's not much we can do this year. So we're not going to go out and like try to be proactive in in trading for players signing any real free agents other than like longshots cam newton on proven deals see. My theory is that he thought the season was going to get canceled because it call it so he punts on the season be like. We're not interested in this season interesting. Yeah i'd be like. And i know the salary caps come down next year because of golden. So i'm considering this award season from the end and it didn't really work out and they still seven to nine so it's fine. They handle it. But i think that's why he was. There might be some of that too. And i also think because they just announced today the t. the tv network deals the nfl. Did that goodell seem. There was so much shit all happening at once. It was something like much shop. I think the. Nfl's getting something like ten billion dollars a year. Well as like the gambling stuff in it too. I think sound like that but like like amazon is doing they're streaming the thursday night games. And like all this all this other stuff going on and so the basically the amount of money coming in. I think i think he's twenty twenty three twenty twenty four when that deal kicks in the salary caps gonna jump back up again and which is basically when all of the deals the have made this free agency kind of jump. Because they've they've backloaded all those into that sort of timeframes. I'm wondering if bell jack was having conversation with craft who's really close with goodell is probably in all those conversations with all of the the the league deals going on so maybe had an idea of. Yeah it's going to go down this year and then a couple of years. It's skyrocket back. I think pretty common knowledge. Even i sorta maybe you contracts everything has a one million dollars base salary and then a bunch of my take away from all this fucking no clue how. Nfl contracts work. I have. I have no idea what hits a salary cap. What's dead money. what is fucking signing bonuses. Were they ca-. I have no fucking. That's why you've follow on twitter blowing up. Yep he's got like thirty thousand followers now because of this he's a he's a great follow because he's like who is it at pats cap at pats cap thousand been started back in podcast. Twitter shutout at. Pats does it for free but he accepts donations to his local habitat for humanity. All right i'm gonna give him a fucking signing bonus of two dollars third year option for fucking fifty cents. But i guess new thing now is void years to you because yeah started that to tom. Brady's contract's void. You spreading just kicking the can right. Yeah so there's a lot of that going on this year. I think because they're trying to kick the can down do it for the patriots last year. I had so much money matt caps. They couldn't even signed anybody if they wanted to do. Because brady's dead money alone was like twenty something million million or something so and this year at the bottom. The cap fits they have like for this year is like barely above that. All those big is there anybody else. You're excited that they signed able you want you want. Let's let's go by like position unit right all right. So let's start with the offensive line because there was shit that went down. The line comings and goings right. Let's probably the worst. The unisom the bend the worst since the free agency period. Because we live. I don't i think they're shape here unless they're in bad shape but of all the last year's group versus this current years group. This is the one that probably decreased because he lost andrews already spent two season without andrews. Right still is still awesome and the patriots Saw this as well today. Tunes awesome to the patriots have never paid a second contract for a center. Like every center that they've started has been like an undrafted either. An undrafted free agent or somebody picked up in the draft late. I'm not like worried about them at center or you can guard. I think that like it'll be fine. Who the guys that have. This think last year's group will better. I don't know. I mean he's a top guards and he got eighty million dollars contract with sixty guarantees like the second most guaranteed to any i think they lost depth for share right so if they brought him brown they lost andrews and they lost tuning right. Yeah so right. Now you're looking at the tackles are going to be win and brown possibly. Maybe you're you're guards are gonna be unwise and shack mason. I think in way and where you get him in the draft is fucking huge and you could guard or tackle. Am wind could tackle so you have a lot of flexibility there in carriages. You're only one. That's kind of a question mark center. But we've had a year with them. Where like you wasn't noticeably dad. So there's not much beyond that but those five rolling out you feel comfortable with them right well. The issues of also spent other draft pick and the or now Yawny steal whatever that guy and there was a there was him and those another one to four in dude that they had the video on that love the video and then never saw him again. Oh yeah i think. He's gone like the swedish guy or something. Yeah the run game that know having just trent brown back out. There is a massive. He's i remember him being pretty awesome. The run game and then a new. But i also never heard his name on winning. I don't say well we knew. I think it's on new. W we also have a job herring as well. Yeah there's a guard. They're all kind of no names. Aw aluminum or the other guy that played a bunch of snaps is here right. But they got these up free agent. He would he got beat a bunch. I remember being my come on dude so so you guys get hurt you. We'll call it a a wash downgraded depth but starting fives awash right. What was which other settle about the l. yep This is an area. I felt like they were awful last year. Here especially the law linebackers. Let's linebackers and defensive line together. The front seven and i think they were at the bottom of the league especially in stopping the run. Yes pressuring twenty. Six of the nfl asking says halted. Just do way too much and for new jennings so they lost out butler. Nobody could set the fucking edge. They lost adam. Butler and bo allen technically would actually comply and you may make a case adam bother was the best of the front seven your last year lawrence guy technically hasn't signed yet either so maybe he might be gone. Hard to tell But they've done some things to address that defensive line They resigned dietrich. Wise and carl davis so that's good They also signed anybody. Wanna give this a chance. Devan god show it either. I'm i'm not. You wanna know because kasha god show those love this on the god show actually pronounce. I'm gonna call them couch. Oh i thought you were going to do fanatically say god. God show baby welcomed. The god shelled a. They all signed defensive. Lineman hairy henry anderson of. Yeah but i always liked those never heard of no-name defensive and guy from the jets because they're probably good right there just playing in fucking black hope and recently as of today mantra adams who believes i haven't seen yet again. I guess he was a like a big deal in high school and was good in college but like hasn't been able to translate that which is something. The patriots are are big on like those sorts of projects so he might work out. You might not but a lot of these guys are kind of like big body. Got a great name. I really want a bunch of barker. Cbs mingo yes name. His brother's names are also all time. I forget what the whole family is. Great names one new had just a regular day tvs. yeah now. i'm looking at check. Roger mango the something hilarious. That arkadiusz mangoes full name barker. Cbs lavar kiki manigault. Kiki geeky the you love me siblings. Hugh tavis mingo maliki lingo. Well hugh mingo you and hugh. That's two separate people. Yeah i'm thinking maybe junior because the parents are human. Go barbara johnson. Right as far of the whole thing like out here. Part of the whole thing. Barbara joe babs just humongous barking and babs that's hilarious. We talked about defensive line. Well yeah jude on. Obviously we didn't make ticket ticketing. Yes let's talk about. Because i will initially all about it. I think he's awesome and he's a great player. Exactly what the defense needs. The other side. ravens linebacker front seven. Terrible track record even like lawrence guy. I thought also could pop. And he's just been okay at best daily. Is thomas news good for a year. Then you got like who is guy rosie cole. Is the bears news from the bears. Yeah you can't judge a player based on site. Let's just like i'm comes over from the ravens. We've we've a couple and they'd never actually been wicked good. I think they're. They're kind of like a linebacker factory to kinda like the steelers are which wide receivers where it's like they. They always do better there than in other places right. It's true in baltimore like they franchised in last year too. So he was a franchise fight so he's definitely out of the question. Wonder if like the red sox nine someone with big expectations from the raise know. He's a little gun shy after a couple of those. I don't know if that's the same. 'cause it's not like going from a small market to a big market baltimore's margot they're saying but it's the same sort of feeling deep down inside. I'm trying to be real here on the top nine average enemy superstar. I think he's like that perfect. Maybe not be the flashiest pass rusher but setting the edge and the game and being like an all around overall linebacker like dont'a hightower is fucking awesome. Needs to be more of like a mike. Vrabel ninkovic toward a guy plan right. I think that's the role that they probably see for him. And especially with the way that they're drafting these these. These big boys are not drafting but Signing these big boys on the defensive line like these are some like i think this Monterey is adams. He's a wide body boy. Henry anderson while he's a he's a big guy so i think they're kind of almost it feels like they're going to go back to that three four. Yes because i mean just look on many linebackers. They picked up. They got that they've got hightower coming back. They've got and chase winovich as well who i think. One of the only people who had more quarterback can pick up like run defense semi edry wealth from these guys. He's going to be an absolute monster next. Pass rush that. Like mike vrabel had and has you're the two thousand three season washing preamble like really find his group. It's been awesome. Yeah and i feel like judaism is going to fit into that sort of mold as well. What about calvin oi back to. I mean you could possibly want to try it. Yeah from the land back angry. You don toback who dont'a hightower and in kyle van noy in the middle basically think dont'a hightower is gonna come back and be the player he was. I've ninety percent of the he looked pretty bad is last year in coverage. I remember thinking. Yeah we're not going to have to ask them to cover with jude on. Keep their dude. I'm concerned about linebackers jays coverage to in like the impact for me last year either winovich was getting benched halfway through the year. I've concern about linebackers. I am actually the opposite. I think linebacker is going to be the strength of the defense next year. You know this eighty s going to be the strength of defense year. That's what i think. This safety group is not leave. Because i we in gregor on very opposite sides of i think we are. Yeah i think you're rating hightower to too much. He's been in the modern. Nfl like that's not what you need is run stuffing linebacker. What about your bentley. do though swan bentley hightower. I didn't think you. I think that's that's tear. He's like a playmaker all over the last step huge moments. He's a leader of the like the heart and soul makes all the big plays and yeah around stuff and we fucking sucked against the run. If we didn't stop the wrong the linebackers they have to throw it now. You have. you're going right to the teeth of our strength. which is the secondary cause. I know the secondary has always been for the last couple of years fucking awesome and get any worse. Also who's gonna who's gonna rush the passer. Winovich is the only one on the on the entire defense that i feel comfortable saying he that good chewed on rush numbers. It's not a big sack guy though right but he's still got great numbers on rush pass rush wasn't he's acidy. Everything's asked cockup thirty four sacks since two thousand sixteen so it's not bad. Yeah it's okay but beyond you don't have that. Typical pass rushing defensive end. I guess what if you're playing if you play in that three four that's kind of where those linebackers fit in. Yeah and there's no one that really looks like they're like a jet albuquerque guy. I'm winovich yeah. But i mean there was some issues with who che in do anything for me last year. I thought he was flashed. Closing speed was crazy. I don't know and also he was. They were both rookies. Started off season. On which i have high hopes for expectations for the rest of them. You know who should be your favorite person in the front seven deitch wise. Why because apparently he's a big locker room guy and now's like your role in. Unh socrates. Ask guys a locker guy. Not a fan favorite. Did a pretty fair. there weren't any fans at your game so there are no fan favorites. Mom was there every game right. So maybe we're the fan favourite. Yeah they go greg. No other fans every mom boom. That means the why would resign. Why is he hasn't done anything. He's a big locker guy. Apparently everyone loves a guess. I mean i like him too. But i don't dislike. He may have more potential. I don't know if he's reached it yet but he certainly is taking his goddamn time getting there all right. I'm good on the front seven. I've said my piece secondary secondary who the hell knows. Cla gilmore probably doesn't said that like it's a certainty but people are saying like the fact that it hasn't happened yet seems like people are cooling on that idea. Yeah well you got to look at the salary cap numbers because if they take a they caught them then they have dead cap money of thirteen million compared to restricted free agency and twenty twenty six classes. I have no clue what happens if they cut a retreat of not. Get plus six million in cap room. Something like that the but it's still like eight million in debt money or something. Yeah but what is money regardless admitted create more cap room. And they do so. I would say you train for another player's right. You can kind of use that. Nba is a trade exception as a fan. I'm not as concerned about losing gilmore. As people might think they're pretty stack i think does even people get buried in that depth chart Could play if the yeah. He's the guy that like i thought. Wow he probably got in there. I just can't get jonathan jones. Had a hell of a year. Jc jackson i think could be a fucking pro. Baller jackson gonna get paid next year jackson. They put a second round tender autumn restricted free agent sat around the montanes. Someone's same on the on the chicken tender. The we get their second round pick at their friend. Alright if we don't match their offer they which i saw someone ask on. Twitter are poison pills still allowed. They are not. Yes we know all about that. Yes steve tell us about that. The curtis martin contract back in the early two thousands of why are you wanna go down that road again. I don't wanna relive that. No you say. Curtis martin. Because i thought he left us spot. I love them. Poison pill poison pill so that's what they got rid of it right. Yeah got pissed about it. Yeah so safeties. I feel like we're that's why we have the deepest Safety group in the league paid more and more to. They're actually making a fair bit of money like their contract is have been going up. I mean pat chung. Just retired patrick chung today today today. Yeah amazing that of going to the playoffs. Eleven straight seasons ridiculous start his career. Yeah but you still have devin. Mccourty agent phillips agent phillips Was like the only free agent signing from last year. basically right. I looked up. I looked up the pages. Twenty twenty free agency on a hero. Cody davis who resigned again this year. Yep brian hoyer teams guy brandon copeland dan vital adrian phillips to year deal blow allen. Didn't place now. Nope damir bird. That's it kennedy right. That's what i mean. They resigned butler. Who say a one year. Calhoun luminol are tuni on franchise. Yup resigned last year cited slater and jason mccartney set left and he just went somewhere else as well whilst he went one year. Need abner left to the giants. Think he's a freedom mature in robert still with the dolphins tag karras back back. I love the a calvin because they let him walk to. The dolphins got a fourth round. Pick this for this draft. And then he's back so they they basically lost cam colvin oy and then got him back plus the pick from the dolphins in. Here's the up. His earnings. just like trump brownsville houses. In their first year the patriots was four point six yup than two and a half then five i. The dolphins was fifteen million. Yep next year he's down. He signed like a five year. Fifty million dollar contract contract with them right and yet they basically come after one year ridiculous which is for you. Six point eight this coming year the beaches as he's he's actually a forty three million bucks read goldline's tatum two and a half million to trey star with the lions Best defensive backs You also have jail. Mills was another big off offseason signing this year spent five years with the eagles and he's kind of guy that played everywhere all it felt. It feels a bit like a A definite mccourty where star cornerback wasn't like the grace cornerback. But they've kind of shifted to safety played a little bit of linebacker and shit on the he went to the pro bowl cornerback in his first year. Not doing the second year but like he was also was a cornerback. Don't put all aren't just just. We found his veterans safety. Sure we'll go with that. Yeah he's awesome. Yeah i think that's to greg. Just because he's old and he's just gonna be new the player he was same either. The same type of player is high dollar. You can say that about high. That's eight about matter. I think it's easier to get exposed in hightower's physician than it is. Mcchord is free safety. Get beat deep in like one wrong step in. You're done at mcchord as an. I'm basing this off of ice. There was like three or four occasions in hightower's last season he played While he looks really slow in coverage at and i've i've said that macquarie i mean maybe i'm not a fucking xs and os guy. I'm not watching tape. But just from the eye test. I think mcchord is still got the speed which covers a lot of Maybe a lot of that sort of stuff by by being fast yes. We'll find out but he's getting there too. I mean how many years he's got left at him he's equally. But like the other aspects he brings off the pure speed or athleticism. Whatever on the keeping the defense in lyon if he adopted on as well how much how shit our defense would have been last. At least we weren't like blowing assignments like left and right. It's true i think either mccourty bring a ton of leadership and that sorta side to the defense especially. Try to integrate all these new guys into right. There isn't a more of the secondary this new al dogar. kyle duggar. Yeah the guy who was. I think one of the bright spots on defense year. he's like. I wouldn't surprise me because it almost feels like a lot of these positions are kind of blending together to like linebackers. Getting bit lighter and faster safeties are getting bigger and guys that can play in the box but also cover a tight end. So i wouldn't be surprised if you see like maybe three safeties on the field in some situations and instead of a linebacker you know so you take off like a high hightower. Kyle duggar adrian phillips and bills. Jalen mills so you have technically like three safeties on the field instead of three. Three or four linebackers. You know a great cop. Tedy bruschi fried tower because teddy was not greeting card especially towards his backside of his career. Brow tedy bruschi. Every picky guy was a pick six. Td we're in the middle of eight thousand three. Yeah and we're in the middle of that right now. I can't believe you're talking about them. How dare you. I'm not talking to say. I love my our. He's awesome so steady zane in like later in his career obvious passing down their southern amount for a coverage person. And you got the great point. You can use a safety in that role especially as offense. Get lighter as well. I mean you don't see that too tight ends which except for the patriots of course which they're going to go back to it seems like everybody's doing spread offenses with our peos and all this stuff and so you're going to have just smaller guys on the field and so to counter that. I think i mean he also it a little bit last year to pay. Play my other theory. That i did have before this call. Oh boy girl. While old boy including last year and bill checks zigging when the when the nfl zagging and to go back to. What we're seeing doesn't three with real run. Heavy clock control defense. I being bigger than the other person overpowering physically when everybody's going to a spread offense superlight geroge right so if you tax defense that will be real light and used to covering spread offenses every day with a really aggressive game. I think the ravens are doing the same sort of thing with s s. Then you've got to have like an unstoppable clock control offense and then the other side that is building awesome. Awesome defense which we've had for a little bit now. Yeah i don't. I don't think you're i don't think you're wrong. I think the pa- think bell. Jack is often gravitated towards the too tight ends his. It was graham and watson i write. I'm kind of in the timeframe we're doing now. Since he doesn't four. I think yes i think wasi exactly And then obviously groggy hernandez and now you have hunter henry and jonnu smith and the only reason now is available i think is because the cap so low and no one else could give money tight ends of crazy money offer right so we could get crazy. Money offers like henry. You've probably was like would never have signed if john hadn't signed. I don't know if that's true. Because he'd always a great quarterback cam not. Let's be real the quarterback situation pages on subtle. It's true but i think he's money signs a lot of those issues. Yeah yeah money. I don't think they. I think people are more stock the less than john you could be. We're paying jonah's attire. Upside hunter like he's got injury questions and gave the cat being so low prevented somebody else from paying hundred henry just like john maybe or more. You know so. He was left with like no one's going to give me more than i can go to the same team i already on. We're both going to be awesome together. Who knows what they're going to quarterback though he would never gone. There's just hit someone else's bay. John mcdonough money. We're like they will be to tampa. I don't know i don't know about that. Go in tampa for one year and see what the cap is next year. I'm with greg. i think that's a little overweight. I think it depends on. If it's like a rodney harrison type a guy who's doing it for the respect maybe like a talent of his career but if you're kind of like in your prime you make that money you get there. And they gave him a decent time commitment to right where i think that plays and a decent signing bonus like those are these players are like okay like i have minimal opportunities to capitalize on the guaranteed agency. So how much money can i get right now. Is the most important thing for like competitive. This like i want to set. I wanna be have money for my family. Those are the kind of things that are highest priority for these players. It's not it's not. Who's my quarterback and you know what is the five year plan. Look like in the program. It's i want to get paid because this is my one chance in my nfl korea down to that one view it's only factors in it. And that's i know. But i guess the biggest factor though i would venture to guess the whole. Everyone always talks about tom. Brady is such fucking unique situation. Because he's not going to get cut. They can cut everybody else whenever they want. Like big big-name quarterbacks. That's why mahomes got that weird contracts because he's basically uncomfortable. You know all the rest of the players. The nfl uterine acl over year. Later all those back years. So it's absolutely horrendous. The lack of guaranteed money is guaranteed contracts. Fell will be an absolute crazy town situation on that. Oh yeah yeah. It really would in the in the sport. That's the most violent that has shortest life. Yeah how are. They not guaranteed their money. Yeah compared to a baseball or basketball. We're play forever. Who are making even more money. And like if. I signed a contract with the government. You pay this money and like actually got real fucked up undermined. Yes but i just be like. I don't like this team anymore. i'm quitting like. Why can't they do that. You quit even. I can't quit you. That bullshit well you will see if if you actually can quit a team. You signed the contract. It's sold you bitch right to work state. Baby i can just and leave. Doesn't what happens with the texans and shawn watson we'll see if you can actually yet. I'm not ready for this. I don't care the let's talk. Weapons offensive weapon suspense weapons Well the page. I haven't done anything really in the backfield but they signed wide receivers but they might lose james white that seeming like more of a possibility right. Maybe yeah i don't think david andrews origins white is officially gone. But they seem to be assumed. Gone seamus steph or somebody. I think andrew's sign somewhere today. I thought so at least he said he was exploring free agency. He's like. I've looked at deals from new england. He decided he was going to go to free agency. Which almost means he's definitely got not definitely. That could be sweet. But then they signed ted karras later that day. And it's like okay. Money's is small us a one year deal to them as backup instantly better than the other guys. Backup jack johnson. Yeah ten need level. Did he get ten ten d. I have no idea. I don't think it was like a using exclusive free agent tender exclusive rights free. It's at germany. nfl. Europe exclusive rights. Free pay have exclusive rights that they can't negotiate anybody but they are free agent but they signed fullback last year. Didn't they danny retali- they let him go. Do they gone. he now. I mean was good last year. Yeah but i think with a real plentiful. Back is dalton keen stink. Let's go back to the titans. Bay has here's. I have another theory that i've thought of okay. The four tight. End offense all right. Now you're talking my language. We got the offensive line who thought he massive rather three tight ends are siasi the two guys he signed. And then fullback. You have don king and then came at running back and came running back quarterback and then sony or damian harris running back assuming both king that gary we can tighten it up and just pounded or you can spread it out entirely and just throw it remember when the houston was defense against us in the middle of the field. I think if you took that and said okay we're going to spread everybody out and these guys who are now blocking are playing. But i think he like the the difference is you have to have tight ends at are like matchup problems like the if that was the case they would have just ran it last year with two tight ends but the players that can like linebackers coverage. Will you have that don't you. Yeah that's what i'm saying. Now they do but to give four. It doesn't make a difference to you. Could have if both the tight undergrad. Last year grow a ton which generally untied ends. As your first year. Always sox everybody stats rookie. Tight ends always blow yea second years and they make their big moves. And so if you got both those guys out there who can also be linebackers and coverage and you can go from full on full run. Ford tight end package. Go line to a spread offense while the i mean. It's not a spread offense. If you have four at florida nelson. Keene is more like a halfback sort of thing. Like a like a you lineup. Fullback split wide whereas devon asi asi is more like the actual on the line tight end. So i see i see tuna years the tight end offense right. Okay five if you count camp and can run it as well i love and even better than cam not enough Who's the who's the backup in in las. Vegas raiders. mariota mariota so you. Wait for the raiders. Avi says is the future of the raiders. So yes so you wait for the raiders to fuck that up and releasing you sign him. You run a two quarterback offense four tight ends and then don't think also basile shell with or yet europe as one of those with the quarterback who's taken a snap either one. That's the thing you could surprise can do the rpo but to the other quarterback who can then throw the ball s or run it because they're actually had good hand last year too. That's what i'm saying. Yeah cam wide. Yeah i'm pretty sure. Mariota's had some reception in his in his career. You're really onto something here. Let's see marcus mariota. won't you wonder if we're tight. End offense it's like going back to the original days of football. Right is what. I'm saying being offense or some like fixed wing or whatever it is yeah. Mariota is averaging thirty one yards perception. How many receptions to camps on three targets sixty six percent carry. That's not too bad. What is august. The forty one's great question. I'm in cameroon. Gotta be up there. I don't know. I can't remember a ton of them and Cam newton rushing receiving. He has three catches on four targets. Averaging twenty two point seven yards per catch sought to bad and Three touchdowns goddamn all right had two touchdown catches last year. Yeah he did. He caught two through eight and one in his rookie season. A carolina any year on something. Here this is what i'm saying so we have so i mean so you have the you have your five offensive linemen right. Say four tight end. So that's nine and then two quarterbacks eleven that's all you need what other weapons do you need are legit be really hard to defend because when you put out there to defend that put a tunnel linebackers. I guess that's the only part you can put it on line bekker's and have enough linebackers on your team. You run the ball between the tackles with cam over and over again you could. I guess you're the one getting hurt. Gossip five million bucks. Or i mean you don't even have to because you can. You can split mariota wide throw to wide screen. And then he could do a throwback to one of the tight ends. I mean you can. Also it's a crazy place opportunity. I got an idea. Run the ball like a running back in that same. I got an idea. What about a phone that you can smell through. Well we're talk super fucking ideas. Poke poke any hole in that. Pokemon hold of my i d i dare you wanna hear this. No one's done it before which means it's not a good idea. I don't tell you about checks. That's what they said to henry ford to the like. Oh no just make a faster horse. Yeah how'd that work out. If anyone reported the board he's four that proves your point you're right. You know what i hadn't considered henry ford's horse versus vehicle. That's right eerie. Yeah andy glad you're coming around really coming around speaking the henry ford of the nfl. Johnny johnny smith and tom brady nicholas is some other angle. Can i give you my theory. Big nick okay. My theory is bill. Belichick builds his team around the talent. Daddy has specifically the quarterback so he built all those teams in new england around. Tom brady being a a good lynch movie. Chains guy right get amendola pretty big signing at the time at. Oh man. Welker those guys. He's saying okay. I've cam newton. We're going to give this cam. Newton thing another role. How out is cam. Newton worked at his best. Let's see table the quarterback stuff two thousand fifteen two thousand fifteen gamut cams. Mvp season fifteen one. Who was the leading receiver on that team tight. End greg olsen seventy seven catches eleven hundred yards seven touchdowns his receivers. You wanna hear him deep tag in junior jericho khatri philly brown and devin funchess. The most we've talked about this ten junior led the wide receiving corps with forty four catches tech junior. The deepak what was what was What was four yards per. Catch you think like seven hundred yards something like that so loves is. I talked about the copper. That name sound like not kendrick bourne right. Those sound like the same type of guys aglow had like the same amount like forty nine catches for eight hundred or nine hundred yards very similar. I dunno born that well. But i do feel like as far as the overall receivers are just a little bit like You know. aj green didn't sign for lot Marvin jones and signed for lot. And he's been awesome. Golladay signed it but marvin jones is also free to need scientific bus. I didn't even know he. Creative fifteen million guaranteed. It seemed like a lot. He's a risky one right. Yeah you're saying the central for him for well get a better deal for that money. Got one out of the. You're betting liking being nobody for five years in philly and varying. I remember his reputation was like dropping passes. And just like yeah. Yeah those that clip in the news about him but the guy the guy talking about how like those a place on fire and the the people inside were literally throwing babies outside out of the windows of the people in the ground could catch him is like we were catch a like that fool aguilar who needs to take some fucking notes. Draw into the interview after. You've been catching babies as windows so philly. Thank god so what do you think the wide receiver looks like. Then starting next year also unsettled so questionable. What is julian edelman coming back. That report is is not awesome. Still concerned greg He may not don't where's he going to go. I i can't imagine you retire. Yeah i mean. I think it's either. He retires stays in new england. And i think it's probably a better chance. He stays in new england because he's doesn't strike me as a guy that knows. He's fuck this. i'm giving up. I feel like he pushes it until they are forced to cut them in. I think he goes to tampa. I don't think you're but why would they trade him though. Right and also like tampa doesn't need wide receivers right now. So we trade him. For a scotty miller in some compensation i think james white goes to fucking tampa. I don't i don't think element goes tampa because the pages don't need another. They have gunnar just ski in like. Why would you not trade them then to example like a solid. Get it back with tom brady. Which bucket probably really really wants and seeing having so much fun down there used by some appear being lipman dallas sweet. Yeah but again. Just tap it. Tampa has no room for them though. What the fuck where. They want him. Because tom brady. Tom brady was a window. So maybe you're tom brady. Wants element down there. Did they are such boys. Yeah you might be right. I just don't see new england trade just as like a favor. The real question is how much do you believe in garner. i believe in gunnar. I'm all i'm all in on receiver. He's the he's he's fall exactly but wes welker era And that texas game where welker tore his. Acl element has shot. And we're all alone. So why gun or do anything last year when we're rolling out. It's coming up in like offense. Throwing the ball was atrocious. Also you're you're you're framing it around the tom brady years. Which is a very different thing than the cam. Newton throw him the ball who would have been off pretty fucking dead. But i think if you're stereotype and white guys. But i think st you know that is very naughty you him for that but i definitely mom calling the pages that is very naughty. Every from icon hotline. No but we're talking about gregory. Sometimes naughty boy sometimes not sherry. Do not nothing. You'll lot of use courtesy of the yellow award which one naughty boy very naughty. I was worth all the effort. They put odd debts. Got them queued. Up with luna. Sure you don't you don't get to add greg's emergency warnings Us sound of that. We're we're we're saving spot number for for something gooden. We'll see what that is. I don't know yet. that's a real conversation. Yeah yeah so. But i think to greg's point about a the governor jesse not or to your point not not playing well. This year is because maybe like a cam. Newton led offense isn't relying on that shifty receiver who is getting open but just barely an and it's like a lot of that short passing game. Where it cam. Newton might be more of like a play action down the field. If that's open. He hits the tight end. Sort of thing which i think is how he succeeded in carolina. Right greg you know what point for that equation is the drafting of nick. He would be one of those ones is better at fifty fifty balls than using craftiness group running to get open. Cam can just throw the ball up like you did let devin funchess's big ask is there though. He did pretty well with point. But i mean there's a lot of talk about nikiel. Harry being traded as well so do you think he says think the ultimate determined. That is what they end up doing a quarterback. I don't air crazy keeping me. I don't care what they do attari. it's this point. He's been super frustrated. great receiver besides the guy. You're wearing the jersey of greg Last great high. Pick receiver drafted. You're gonna be vince. Yeah you're going to do david like that wasn't in your boy. Julian edelman like that branches super mvp but actually seven ground saint high pick those drafted or undrafted free agency and found some guys there. But what about The patriots aaron aaron aaron drops in campbell. Dropkin s- malcolm. Mitchell was great for the third. His knees were still alive. Chad johnson. So here's something now. johnson was. I always stick to johnson jackson. What having this conversation last names around but stop interrupting. And steve steve. Nobody cares very ati naughty boy. Learning boy that's right mom. You're absolutely correct. What are they being. Very naughty agree. Go ahead be a patriots. have never infre- like what's the biggest offensive free agent. The patriots have brought in in the ballot. Check era randy moss. Not a free agent. Biggest by what measure listen panels productive. Yeah biggest name whatever you want to come and dull no yeah. I think that's probably the only big name offensive weapon that brought free agency. Gilmore is probably their best ever fridges. Corey dillon. corey was a trade that he mosque. Trade trade probably the big three but in terms of offense of free agents pages. Don't really do that terms. They do some line stuff. A a fair bit line in running back to like rex's of free agent from the bengals. Yeah i don't know how big the okay and then like the guys running back as well but yeah wider. see her. I mean cam. Newton maybe biggest free agent signing on offense thing. May we didn't have to quarterback for so long so far the account that they always get the. I mean they got some big names that they're all telling it a career like oh just goes pretty big at the time taylor big terms like productivity. Yeah whereas defense like they're willing to spend the money on defense go get a guy if they want like a daily as thomas or rosevelt colvin but who's going to be in that big name. Maybe that shows up at the end emmanuel sanders was that guy showed him in the patriot. We did that restricted offer to them. Yeah awesome on the pats. Yep yeah he would've but the the steelers didn't want to let them go. Well actually antonio brown technically a free agent signing big name but didn't do anything. Yeah so i think this year. If you're going to say that this is an unbearable check light year most well then can i the the. I'm not going to criticize check. I i like what they're doing this year but i will criticize patriots. Fans who over the years have always been like clowning on the other teens. The nfl for making big free agents learning the offseason. Yeah for winning the off season and now all of a sudden the patriots start handing out these like above market average contracts and the patriots all suck at rest of the nfl. What do you mean stacked up. Pacific twenty years. And that's why. I'm going to give him a pass as year. Because we've never been able to experience it in our patriots. Fandom right yeah so i'm just admit that it's fun it's exciting. It's scary. i don't know how it's gonna work the first time. Well maybe the second if you want to count oh seven an iranian. Also as well welker but and. I don't think anybody realized that it wasn't like this. Year has been an like year. Dr bags of can you. It is just like the drafts. Don't stand for the patriots pick. They're just gonna treat out in the first round and you get tired. Does he continue that trend into the draft. I think so yeah. I think this is their quarterback to say. Here's a nail turn. Yeah woods ricky williams deal or a herschel walker. Deal herschel was even worse right. Yeah i don't think the entire raft. The whole right of the dolphins to the saints for the right to draft. Ricky looked it up. Who won that. Who won that trade or the dolphin. Ricky williams did all. Nobody's yeah we'll saints drafter list of. Nobody's although having said that. The dolphins didn't win anything going. What's his name was. Coach wants it who decided to spend their draft capital on him and then not run it with them in the last game of the season with this Playoffs on the line conspiracy. Time rule love this. I don't know if it's just say take just very right. Preempt this by saying this might be insensitive but the shawn watson in recent news of accusations coming out loud masseuses and they're they're getting worse by the day. Yeah there's six of them now. Know the price for shawn. Watson probably just went down. Who else is at a couple runs masseuse. In recent years maybe knows his way around a hand job or two knows how to get off of it to in multiple ways but in terms of like not having to pay any fine greg. Let's the company going through conspiracy theories like let's name names and say you know what is your cats trade draft picks on the lowered market for shawn watson. Get him into town. Kraft gets them off. The charges onwards and upwards craft is the once bearing the rumors about shawn watson. No no bella. Check plan to this back when we're in the afc championship game way. Who's who's who's planting the rumors. Fella check is little fingering the whole thing. He's checking he got. He got craft arrested for the first time out. He's planting these masseuses the long. Oh yeah because he thought he was going to be done back dad and he's like yeah braves retiring after that soon wall. Okay demi no wendy franken every time the chiefs when you different crafts to get the show. Originally gets sympathy for quarterback is going to bring in the future that he lowers the price with yet decided but he had the practice by framing his boss. I well craft sympathies towards bringing a player like that tonio brown a little bit right. Yeah okay we did check frame crash check say see that situation and say how can i just take advantage of this check framed him. Yeah bell jack evil genius. They do framed him. Jane craft and framed by you. Know just frame sean. Well that's way more. Believable he did. That's the thought. The allegations are true. I this is where i stopped to their when you're having fun turned q. Q. we'll have to wait for the next cue starbuck and telling this is what. But i think Yes we definitely. Stop there for that. But i think that there needs to be an nfl version of q and on there needs to be an unnamed source inside the building though inside league offices dropping huge drops. No because they're all bullshit you so it'd be a bunch of gripe which is why we can do it because we're created bullshit to become cunanan. Is that where you're going with this. Yeah we're we're going to cut us cut this part out. Yes but we're going to be queuing on. Nfl needs better name. No i'm not going to jian. It's definitely not roger goodell on steam thoughts real. G's and greg can be. Look i can. I can barely commit to a once a week. Podcast thread cramming things. We don't even have franklin. You could just make. It is key codes. That sounds like a lot of all the bullshit up on. Everyone's believing all right. Let's start now. Roger goodell has been molesting children for thirty s. You know every conspiracy has a thin veil of truth to it every every time. He mentioned pizza. What he's really talking about is as little children and every time he mentioned player safety. He's referencing a child. He molested what he says owners. He's not actually talking about drinking children's blood to keep them dial level it's a kabbah crapping sex trade you know propping up the failing and that's the reason goodell still commissioners because he has all this blackmail and all the owners so they can't get rid of them. The pink is for children's blood. Everyone knows a lot is not told zahn epstein flight log. See this is easy. We can do this. We'll cut this part so nobody will know. I'm sure i'll remember that. You wanna go right into quarterbacks. Then here's the question can i. I have like one more note. That's it how good this is like a mask kick nick. He's back oh yeah. Let's talk about tap water. No show. I didn't even know this was back until today and a workday than a puppy party and iding check it and comes down with vodka. I'm sorry i'm sorry ru no no. Please don't puppy party. Are you dogs together and they go fuck fucking buck. Wow that's great good start. You can call it a puppy. I'm sure there's a podcast by. I'm surprised i'm surprised. Give it a cuter name. The public palu cool means can come up with now. That's it so quarterback. Tastic something you talk to you about quarterbacks no kickers now we talking about kickers tap water tap order just in tap water delivered. Three kickers right now. Let's talk. oh jesus. While i also. I'm surprised nick. Foles didn't get more mined from somebody who is awesome last year. I don't care no the kickers think kick your son. My special teams is hugely important. We got talking about justin dukla getting back as well. Please know what. I think. That bethel signing is huge. You are way. Are you fucking with me right now. No you're serious yes you think. The justin bethel's huge yup. Yes guides you so fucking dumb steve. Three months later retired. Greg cowan for years. Probably this is why. This podcast sucks suck up just in bethlehem this special teamer. He then made huge plates. Say waste later has him in slater or the two special teams guys in the league. We have is the reason hunter went to the trouble. Yeah they're both awesome last year in we re signed for three or six million bucks. It's nothing in. Slater is like on the tail end of his career anyways so we can just do make the transition for are you serious serious hell. Yeah that was one of the signing the first signing they made was nestle up there actually. I don't think he hit free agency. They said is. They signed him right before. Who cares who cares. The guy plays fucking like templates that game and i. i don't even know. I didn't even really on the roster until they study recital. I don't even know fuck. Just invalid. sure he's good. The third differs between the best specialty in the league in the worst is like nothing. It's not it's not a rounding error in your final outcome of the season. No matter of a team deep in on their own five yard line two letting let ball back year twice a year. It's just so wrong twice a game. So it's two drives a season that did The punter in the rams super bowl did did he win that game. And i'd say everyone agrees he was the game day. The best part of the nfl arabes hecker. Wanted the rams win because they don't have the governor game both excellent. how could they don't have the game. You guys are. You're headed so far up your own ass. no. I ain't still talking about justin bethel a love it great signing maidens opposing offense. They're going to be starting on their own. Three yard line entire season. There is there. Was that play in the chargers game. Where the ball was about the boundaries. Fassi got there and like caught it and scooped up behind him as reagan before he stepped in the end zone. And later you to use your brains okay. You're approaching football's a religion and like bill bell. Jack says that special teams are important. So that's really good signing. Aw that's talking about apparently is really dabbler religion. Football says that's true. I believe it. I decided i think we should start a religion because apparently it's really easy to do and it's completely tax free and start a religion around this bell like we'll we'll work on the name the name. How does the money into because we don't make any money well. We don't have to pay taxes on. The people can tie to us to the church or ballot check and then if you pay enough money to us the patriots will win the more money you give the more chances to your house. No we'll send a masseuse to patrick mahomes house. Ooh yeah see talking to his wife super annoying and his tax free. His brother's wife tiktok people know awful. Here's scott tiktok rules. okay take. Yeah i know it's like the it's like the most popular app out there but yeah football fans in general. I bet if you asked me to be like a tiktok like what. Am i fucking. Gen z like. I get it all say that they're looking algorithm is so good that it just funnels youtube. Shit you'll find funny or entertaining. I think hated marketing. Like there's a ton of shit out there on that are witted kranji and a not funny at all the algorithm just takes such it out and you just keep getting shit you think is funny. Why so if you're a fifty five year old man out there listening to this. I guarantee i gary this dad joke tiktok. There's all sorts of fucking funny tiktok. You will find it. Very quickly tiktok. That's just my. That's my two cents. Okay that november back. I'm a tiktok stan. I'm a ballot checks dan. That's why we call it a legend by the way because think about it this year where church belcher picks always has been so into the patriots. He has here's the fucking and isn't the third command. Because i have no big free agent signed big contracts. Yep i'm just gonna spend so if i'm gonna spend any year it's going to be this year. Getting those low one million dollars deals everything pushed to the back and we're just going for of players all right out the like the tenants of the the church bill check. You know like we're getting now shall not value value value dow. Shell sign players that value though shell strong middle class of the roster that is soc thou shalt not underestimate special teams thou shalt consider whether while taking sides of fields in overtime shalt not punt inside the toddy at the beginning unless throwing a curveball to the opposing coach. Thou shall treat the media like total tickets behind that vow shouts we take the season one game at a time. So shan't think of the future shall take no days off. Shell down your job now. Shan't smile on the sidelines. Thou shelves do. The job shall keep die sleeve. Short and bill set aside and bill said to shovel job. Sunday's resting. I write the religion if you have any commandments. You want us to write down. Yeah what's the Dynasty hawk line six. Oh three five zero five eight old four three three so quarterback quarterback. Let's make predictions who starts week. One jam nerd. Snap under center cam newton cam in all right. If it's not cam newton. Well how about who takes app. Julian edelman was a next starting quarterback after canyon. Say traffic or free agent her well. Let's just let's just propose it as say they go another way this year like we could say they are on the roster trade or draft watson. He was my theory They're gonna trade up for trae lance. I like trae lance to trade up to for trade garoppolo that was playing for bid. But i think they're pats that now why i think just it would have happened early in the year. Like though i'm less than let's get cheaper. I think i heard san francisco's still poking around quarterbacks who who's left i think watson hasn't we manners on his trade list. The forty niners in like i thought swayed domino to fall of like maybe even after the draft for the niners draft a quarterback in pats scoop grapes trafficky. There you just keep going best player available. Were you like me dogwood. If they don't then he gets stuck with in of the year and then where he has your death your find offensive. Tackle like the past two afterguard quarterback. I don't think. I don't think they didn't need to draft a quarterback in ferndale understands that the path to the top tier. Qb is most likely through the top rounds of the draft right and top of the draft. Because you get together and had to worry about it before. So who the hell. Nfl franchise do it in the way they kind of getting. It is picking the top half. Roundly jimmy jimmy. Garoppolo is second rounder. Wilson he was third right. Yeah but those. The was first round mahomes. First round. trubisky was first round. Why jackson darnold was first round. Pick in the first round of the meeting and a hit so the offense via the cba names that they're that are worse than that. Oh yeah the blaine gabbert's of the world basically any jags quarterback for the past twenty years as a first-round pick from sixteen still been on their rosser. Twenty sixteen twenty some other something like that like four years. Where the first round quarterbacks i not on the roster once once was traded kennedy another name. I like trae lance though. I think he fits well in the system. We're riding now and he's not like a too much of his because i think if you're talking about the draft you have to consider are. Let's say this question right. Let's let's say they pick a pick a quarterback who who'd you rate highest with the consideration of what you'd have to trade to get him right right so you say he had trevor lawrence. You have to give up everything everything. The whole dang. You know justin fields. You might be able to get them at four or five. Zack wilson. you probably have to give multiple first trae lance field lands and wilson. I don't think so. I don't know. I think freelance has grown in even mac jones kind of cup. It's like the number one in the zone three guys. Anyone kind of hasn't wherever right. Everyone's going to have a little differently. I think mac and he's rising back. We'll be back sorta regardless trae lance. It's possible right. Yeah definitely possible. Costs a little bit last. But i think all the other three like you gotta move up and get your guy sort of thing. Yeah i think so too So if you're talking a fair bit draft capital do that. Would i what i think. The best fit for the offensive they built. It is like cam. Newton from auburn. Like when he was first drafted right and even a little bit like james winston where they are like those big guys who can run pretty well and can throw it really well as well can throw it down the field to okay. So highs been sounder. I'll take that can run. Add throw okay so trevor lawrence trouble ruskin both do that. They're both equally adept area. The guy coming into clemson next year is a fucking thick boy. How many seats. Greg likes this thing. He's huge near. This would have been fucking on stock. Prime is this offense aslam. He is a thick daughter in greeley. Randall cunningham would have been amazing offense michael vick. Maybe they think they want to be able to run on anybody. You know john elway probably would have been great in this offense. I dunno montana kid. Kelvin montana either. I think guy's got to have a good running part to is to his game all right so we don't jerry steadham. There's a question. Yeah feels young. This is an emergency. You'll find a real quick in the Member steve at the last year. He said it still was going to win the job over cam newton value. Yeah i just was never my fantasy to also said that. Tannahill and josh allen we're gonna suck the starting to not is still. I still believe deep down inside. It's like jab from subway. Solo affected convince a little bit but still makes a bunch of decisions a lot decisions. He's pretty good mostly in. That's that's one good year. I'm all ready to crown anybody at at least we're not the bears. Oh my god any dalton the savior at lisa's hair matches is is Outfit now unbelievable. Trubisky gone now to yeah. He's a he's a backup for the bill back up for the bills off from a month. Straight of like russell wilson rumors to andy. Andy dalton doll. I would kill myself. I was just watching myself. Wouldn't i can't imagine what it's like to be a bears fan right. Now i'd give in washington the peaches over here going. Oh my god. We've got an emergency podcast. This this is such a great off-season we've never had before never had to. This is what it's like. Decide every good free agent bears. Gerbil michael brockers the guy from the rats. When they traded for staffer for goff he was like. Oh man stafford is such a huge upgrade from gough and then this week he got traded to detroit back with boy arc. Were tough look a look. That's tough yeah all right anything else. No. who's your favorite signing. You most excited do on. Yuck johnson mines. John and i watched shadow phlegm low wraps on youtube. Yes got you rose. Yeah did you watch. The johnny one has a youtube channel and he does like Mini deep dives on. Nfl players. where they now or like how do they get. Here is your watch. Johnny one steve. It's really good right now. Did you hear this story about his girlfriend. Or maybe i didn't watch it on johnny It's all like what he's been through this point like he had like a rough childhood wraps f. l. e. m. l. o. Space wraps his girlfriend when they're in college. She's pregnant with his child he. He wasn't giving her enough attention is that she said and she was mad. Says she went over. Boil the pot of water and then threw it on. Holy shit cut his senior season. Short petted did i agree. Burn shit goddamn and like the court. Filing she said is because he wasn't reacting to the argument that she was having with them all my god so he does everything right. he just doesn't react. does it react. so she's like. Oh yeah there's some faulk and boiling water. That's nuts apparently didn't even react to that either. Would that's a pretty. That's hard core. Jesus he just sighs deeply just locks the emergency room all right. Yeah i'm with you. I think i think didn't he come out and say he's going to be the hardest worker Fox ally gillette stadium's ever seen which yep fucking right dude right attitude. I'm excited as long as it doesn't go. Murray around people he's a he's got tight on spotty here for life quarterback hear them because zingone. Would you rather like draft somebody and give a bunch of draft capital. Go get trait. Lance you know cam newton or do you want train rider or die yours. You're sitting you're happy to sit out cam mandy cam. Newton writer dak. That's your preferred. Who do you want fifteen. Then i don't care you know whatever. Belgium best best available like wide receiver tight ends. I want that tied from florida. Scowl be sick. Then i'd be on board with the fuck and four tight ends right. Yeah four tight ends and then go get married. Four tenths you quarterbacks. Okay break the league. I think they should do. Stick with cam as the starter this year and then draft like a later round quarterback because i just don't know i don't think it's worth trading up and then you know the garoppolos the brady's the russell wilson's of the world. They're they're if you get lucky. Like i'm not gonna pretend to know enough about who would be a ticket that but right now i'm sure there guys out there fifth out like third second fourth. Round road sears. Dan pat in the draft in see vegan. Sign veteran in your body stadium. And i'm aggressive. Moved up the board to get your guy on the order. Backside right what would you give a better chance to never have a higher pick than fifteen years. Yeah i'll probably have a three. I this year exchanges year next year is in the year after all. I mean less than it would take to get to sean or russ right. If i'm gonna spend like three. I i'm gonna get the proven veteran guy who's definitely gonna work again. Given three first to move up to fourth pin on three first. To get to sean or russ that would even be okay. Three doesn't get ross. Yeah so that's why. Smoke nurse trout up to to go get moving the draft to the most you give up to habit to exchange. You're saying whatever it takes to get up like It takes a lot more than you think. Yeah pick price first second third this year first next year. Yeah yeah forget from like fifteen seven or whatever it might be. Yeah yep to get in the top ten. It's expensive for sure. Do i in lake some two or threes or fours whenever i basically draft whatever bucket catholic remarkable anyways draft picks for your bills my money. I do subscribe to that theory of like overpaid for this guy. It ain't my money you get to get excited about this dude. I got the room for eight bob. Money hate the red sox now because they trade away. Mookie and they could have been meet my money and just paid him a salary. Dump us fox true. All right boys talked for a long time about a whole lot. An open again. You're good at that so unless anybody has anything pressing they wanna say. Just really to talk more with greg. How awesome bill bell check. It is and how master class i think it was. I think i like what he's doing. I really do me too. I like it the genius. We're on the same page finally. Wow yeah the church of belgium. Yes the latter day church of of I don't know why ladder day but okay. And we we certainly saints sleeveless day church of belgique beautiful. All right well until a next week when we're back to regular programing on the suming unless something else up playoffs yes we will see later unless the next game is the titans two thousand two thousand three.

3 and Out - Bills HC Sean McDermott Talks Allen, Building on Success; Bears HC Matt Nagy On Trubisky Questions, Draft

"Here's the thing saving money with. Geico is almost better than playing pickup basketball. Because there's always that guy who joins your game. He never passes the rock. He constantly bricks threes. And who completely hack you? And then put his hands up and say no foul no foul with GEICO. It's easy to switch and save on car insurance. No need to fake. An ANKLE SPRAIN. Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switch and save with GYCO. It's almost better than sports. And what is going on everybody? Rian out podcasts. Live right now from my hotel room. yeah it was a long night so we have coming down the homestretch. Morton plane here at about seven or eight hours. Maybe a little less than that five or six hours got a big show today. Sean. Mcdermott head coach of the Buffalo Bills Matt Nagy head coach of the Chicago. Bears that a big week. I talked to Howie Roseman as well. We'll put that out next week. I yesterday my guy superbowl champion Andy. Reid talked to Him. For about thirty minutes. We'll do that next week as well but today. We'll have Sean McDermott Matt Nagy. Yeah it is just. I can't say it enough. I feel so fortunate it was so out of my control that my opportunity in the NFL came from coach. Reed who on a staff had last night bump into Doug Peterson Duce. Staley those are my guys Matt. Nagy Sean McDermott. I you know I just got to meet bread. Vh Howie Roseman guys. That were all on the staff all once we I. I didn't control that if I would have been with the Jacksonville Jaguars or you know. I don't even know the Minnesota Vikings anybody so it's just there is an element of just. I can't record this how lucky I am. There was completely atom control in the give me so much credibility I mean I see people out at night. The listen to the show combined with Colin and coach read. I mean I can't I it's it's it's pretty freaking cool. There's there's no doubt about it. I mean there aren't many super bowl head coaches. The Dude won the super bowl less than a month ago. Had Me do a sweet just held court for? I mean we record for about thirty but hung out for another twenty. He's one of the coolest dudes going. I love coach. Read love all the guys associated with them. And you'll hear Sean. Mcdermott Matt Nagy. These guys are younger coaches. I mean they are so so such high level guys Really Cool Week. We'll dive into maybe just a couple things that are going on this week off the top. And then we'll dive into the interviews. Maybe do a little recap last night kind of hard because you don't WanNa throw guys under the bus. I mean you're not thrown under the bus but act like they're out and about you know one of those things with a bunch of famous people out at night and again. I'm so lucky like I can just be standing next to and I just know these guys like I'm sitting there with Doug. Peterson do staley. Because they don't look at me like the media guy they will get the guy that worked with them. I mean this guy won a super ball a couple years ago and then you got rabble who. I talked briefly because I know Mike. Silver who works for the NFL network. Mike variable might be the baddest m effort in the league by rebel. Just a cool ass dude. I see why the stories that Tom Brady might go to the titans. I'D WANNA kick it with able to. I know John Robinson through the general manager of the Titans. They got a good thing. Going people is a bad ass. Love that guy. The the combine man is just. It's a unique football guy convention where the football guys hang out with. The media guys lot of booze gets drank but also a lot of grind. Like coach reads not going out. That's the thing like bell checks not going out. I go into coach reads room yesterday. He's watching tape. Dude won the Super Bowl. Four weeks ago watching draft guys. But you ain't at work in that guy honestly it's kind of inspiring it really is now. I know I've seen it firsthand. It's not like I'm shocked. When I see it be just realized like this guy is on a mission. Just just a grinding mission. Like it's impossible that work. I don't know bell check but I am. I imagine he's doing the same like very much screwing around now you. It's it's a hard balance you can go out and stuff and still be an accomplished guy and kick ass. I mean there are Super Bowl winners out last night but just know this like you're out and about and he's watching guys and he's looking for a leg up. Probably doing some scheme of Al doing something I again. I would imagine Belgium doing the same. I've I've never heard a story of you know. I ran into last night at taking shots Tequila Bell Jack. That's not happening. But they might say that about John. Middlekauff with the combine it. You're starting to feel like Tom. Brady's GonNa leave like he's going to titans. I mean there are some reports this morning. That'd be pretty cool and I wouldn't blame him. I've been in Nashville. Once it's awesome. I like country music. I like just the vibe of that place is boy. They're pretty good. That'd be pretty cool. I mean I couldn't blame him. Sherfield like Jordan. Love is a lock to go like in the top fifteen i. I honestly need to watch film of them because I haven't watched any but it's it's not going away. The other thing is I gain. Jeremiah's down on Herbert talking to us. I went out before I went out with a bunch of scouting buddies that their time for the next four days of your listeners on Friday the the way and start at seven. Am these guys are at Lucas Oil Stadium from seven? Am to eleven o'clock at night for four straight days. 'cause you got wayans interviews and then the workouts. It really is pretty insane. One of my buddies was like yeah. We get like a thirty minute lunch break. I mean it's like a fifteen hour day but Bell Jack can coach read. They're not hung over for that day. They're ready to grind. So it's I don't think anyone really is going to be once the workout start because at the time line is pretty nuts But Yeah Jordan. Love my buddies telling me they like Herbert a lot. I think he's GonNa get Nitpick. But that's what happens to top quarterbacks they get nitpicked but there's GonNa before quarterbacks are GonNa go really really high I mean to and Borough. We're going to go top. I got one for you. I would not discount just talking to people. The Washington redskins taken quarterback and number two. That is on the table. Now I'm not saying it's GonNa Happen but I think everyone just assumes it's not going to happen. I would not assume that the just know. There is a possibility. Dwayne Haskins stinks. Everyone in the League thinks he stinks. No one understands why they drafted in that high. He's got questions about work ethic and stuff there is Ron. Rivera is an old school grinder. Usually he's going to want to Wayne Haskins. I actually the more. I'm just thinking about it. I know chance I would not be. I actually kind of them to take a quarterback and number two in the lions actually might get lucky getting chased young at number three. But if you're listening to this workouts happened. Quarterbacks would've thrown Thursday so I I flew home so I didn't get to watch that we'll talk about. I guess all the workouts next week my other takeaways from combine is just. It's it's fun of it you know if you're a football guy I'd recommend coming out. I I ran into a new friend last night. I guess he lives in the Bay area. Big Colin Coward Fan through their Darius Hayward Bay dues the man so it turns out he lives by me. Grab some dinner with them. Got A new friend D. H. B. Baby. I'd definitely the the slowest guy that dinner. If it ever happens it's going to happen. Actually I got his number. You just football combine. You like Football Geek Fest. You like geeking out with people I I ran into Bruce Feldman last night. I mean I'm just peppering with questions about the SEC. The big ten You put you put me in an environment with a lot of football guys. I can just be out all night because I can just ask questions until the cows come home about things I'm thinking about. I want to know about lane kiffin. I WanNa know about this coach going there. This player going there. It's a I. I'm really glad I came lucky. To have come and very fortunate to have talked to the people that I got to talk to and I hope you enjoy a these couple interviews little back to back Little Bang. Bang here with Sean McDermott Matt Nagy. Let's we'll start off with the bills at goat. Here's the thing. Saving money with. Geico is almost better than playing pickup basketball. Because there's always that guy who joins your game. He never passes the rock. He constantly brings threes. And who completely hack you? And then put his hands up and say no foul no foul with gyco. It's easy to switch and save on car insurance. No need to fake. An ANKLE SPRAIN. Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switch and save GYCO. It's almost better than sports. Very pleased to be here. Could maybe I should refer to him as the veto of the bills. Mafia head coach of the Buffalo Bill. Sean McDermott. What's going on It's good to be here with you. Buddy been a long time but good to be here and we're excited about this off season in Buffalo. That's awesome. I mean two of three years. You've made the playoffs. I remember I guess three years ago. Andy Dalton comes through the next year. He gets a Standing O. For THE BILLS. You make the playoffs at nine and seven. This year I would imagine. Felt a little different a little more complete of a team you. Have you know young quarterback and you guys are building for something? Big Picture had to be pretty special year. Yeah was and it's really special because the people that we have in Buffalo and the and the staff and the players around me and and I'm just wondering one small piece of it and and so we've been able to build a culture with those people that makes it an exciting place to be. So how do you balance being excited? It was a big year but not you played pretty well in the playoff game for a large percentage of it obviously in your division that the bar set there with the Patriots. I mean is how do you balance being you know having been fired up on the year but shooting for what ultimately you want to take the next step? Yeah well I mean. I think that's important piece. That you that you end up with their is taking the next step and really you know you start every year ohno and so we're not just GONNA start with ten wins like we did year and have to add a couple. You GotTa Start and flush last year and start a new and Having said that though you know our biggest competition with all due respect to everyone out there is we got to compete with ourselves first and that comes back to our standard of performance and and how we do things in the bar that we set for ourselves. Is that the next goal winning? The division starts with you guys you know in the division. There's the white elephant I guess she calm dominate the League. For twenty years. You guys played really well against them this year. Really well in both games. Is that what you're shooting for? I mean is that the goal it certainly. It certainly opens we're going to have to do is to is to beat. New England because nate had such a stranglehold on the division. You know so we again in order to do that though. We've got to get ourselves right if we're not right internally than we won't be able to beat anybody out there the opponent is I within and then and then outside and so we gotta make sure we master ourselves. I which means making sure that our process and our operation is right. We add the right players to the players in the core group that we already have. And we're very protective of that internal group there and so and then develop as we continue to move forward. Is there a specific area? You Two thousand nineteen that your team took a jump. Well I thought our offense took a jump Defensively we've been top two or three the last couple of years there and Fraser's done a really good job leading that effort with our offense with our defensive staff and then offensively with a group. Brian Nabil's put into place now on our coaching staff and the players we added We took a step. I think there's another step yet to be taken and that's really what we're committed to this off season. How many wide receiver questions have your looks and people know when you've got to use a podcast you'll be lighter. Got A young quarterback people want to see. The young quarterback have success. And and we do to believe me and so we were able to add a few weapons last year last off season and those weapons had career years. And that's a credit everything. We're doing in buffalo including Josh Allen in this case and so it's an exciting team to play on. It's an exciting place to be and we're looking to add as we move forward speaking wide receivers one thing that just thinking about here you talk. That jumped out to me. This year is on Thanksgiving. You got a big win and you celebrate with Cole Beasley and Locker Room. That had to be a pretty awesome. Awesome Awesome Majesty. You remember you collect moments going through your career whether as a player or coach in this case for myself and and that's one of those moments that I now will have with me and my entire life just being able to watch coal and he had no ill will towards his whole team but have that type of night and then for the team to celebrate like they did on Thanksgiving for him on Thanksgiving night to come in the locker room. I mean it was just as pure sports are anymore. It was it. Was that pure. You find that sometimes head coach. You've been in this business a long time. That the purity of football I mean you got into this like most people do make no money for the love of the sport and then the money that gets thrown around the money you make being head coach. The fame all that stuff that comes. Is that a hard balance. Well I I don't think you gotTa keep your your core values intact right and I've been blessed to make the money that I've been able to make sure this business Having said all that I know it it's been a blessing from from the good Lord above not anything that I've done and it's been a result of a lot of hard work by myself and a lot of people around me. Good people around me Great support my family. And so that balances on me for me. It's easy to keep that balance because I'm humbled every day by by my family and by where I come from on a one to ten scale. What would you say your love? Football is tense. I think ten twelve twelve. You know I think the one thing that has stood out to me over the last couple of years you know you as you get older and you go through life experiences and you start to really get a feel for what matters and and the ingredients that lead to success. I think passion is one of those ingredients that you find in whatever field of work. People are in people who are passionate about what they do. are usually pretty good at what they do and so. I think that's the biggest thing that for myself as passionate about football. It's not who I am because I've got a lot of other things to offer than just who? I am as a football coach but I am passionate about what I do. You were telling me I ask you if you listen to podcasts. Before we jumped on. And you said. Yeah you listed some of Joe Rogan. And just some other interesting podcast. What are your go-to listens? Yeah I mean I'm a big podcast guy and we. We talked about this a lot in our locker room and different. We've got a lot of players that listen to podcasts. And and I'm I'm a big Michael Survey listener and also Jaakko and I've got his His book on on extreme ownership that. I'm listening to right now. All bad ass. Oh Yeah I mean I love the. There's a lot of parallels house arrest ler growing up. There's a lot of parallels between some of what he talks about and and the life that I live growing up as a wrestler and from the age of four. So I think there's just we just embraced the growth mindset and in Buffalo and I think that's a big piece of it is just finding ways at our fingertips to grow and learn when you hear things. Obviously a head coach always bringing new messages new ways to inspire the team. I sometimes think how challenging that would be. Are you just always kind of on the look anything you see? You have a running no book and your phone. How does that work? Yeah so That's a great question by Assistant. I we we can pile things in the off season and put them in a filing system really of pay adversity when we're faced with adversity. Here's a couple of good things you know that we would want to show to the team talk about or good quotes or a lot of our players really follow the NBA. And so we'll use some of the crossover areas of the NBA. They go through or or Major League baseball or golf and so we try and use things that people have used and and just in terms of experiences that they've been in which we try and use them when it's relevant for the situation that we're in. I know when Steve Kerr got hired to the warriors one of his big things was got to know. Pete Carroll and got to know Dan Quinn and that's become a big thing in sports with how easy access people are you. You have other friends and other sports for people that maybe even a mentor basketball baseball. I've been fortunate. I've been very fortunate to be to gain access to some of the great minds that are out there now in football now but I'll also other sports and and so whether it's in basketball J. Right in the Villanova wildcats have been able to form a relationship with him. He's had some success can kill Sanderson. Who's the head wrestling coach at Penn? State you know. There's a couple of major league baseball coaches that I've used and tried to Learn from them as well and so that's part of what we do in Buffalo as well as just that again that growth mindset that professional development making sure that we continue to evolve and grow and develop. Does that help you just talking to J or shooting attacks to WanNa Kale one of those guys? Maybe they just have a different angle on something that you hadn't thought of one hundred percent. I mean they've been some of these. These gentlemen are older and have been through things and been head coaches longer than I have. And so they've been through some of the things that I'm going through and the challenges that I'm facing and and so those are like one of the text. I sent this off season. What are five books? You would recommend that I read. And I'm a big reader of books or listening to podcasts. And so just. Starting that conversation that dialogue is also been good for me. What's the hardest part of being a head coach? I think there's a lot that as a leader which is really what being a head coach comes down to. It's it's more about that than the scheme and everything it's more about leading people and I think one of the hardest things of leadership is. It's very lonely at times. You have to make some unpopular decisions or what's determined to be unpopular at the time in while keeping the greater good of the team in the organization in mind at all times and where we're trying to go chasing that vision and that's probably been the hardest thing and the loneliest. Part of the job was the easiest part. These is part is is Is HEAPING PRAISE? On what we do what we do well. And that's I think that's necessary though to we celebrate those times but that's the easiest part when you're when you're able to reward or award people for what what a great job that they've done. I think that's that's the part. That's that's the easiest part because When you win. It's like getting texts after a win. You get a lot of texts after a win when you when you go back in your locker after a game but when you lose for some reason those those texts have been cut down to two or three for some reason. Small little world right here. We Got Matt Walking Up. We've got multiple Philly guys here. Philly adopted me. I came for a couple of years. I'll get you out of here on this. Your quarterback pretty polarizing player coming out of Wyoming. I followed him now and instagram. For Awhile I mean he's a really impressive human and I can see why you loved him as a player. Is there a specific area? Because I'd imagine you'd like the guy a lot in the work ethic checks all those boxes as a football player is there is a one tangible element that he needs to kind of. Maybe make it step to take you guys to the next level. Well and that's the cool thing about Josh is. He's really dedicated to improving his overall game. His total game and you know last year a lot was said about some of this deep ball things in the year before a lot was said about a short to intermediate Short Intermediate Pass. Season is off the charts and and so. I know Josh is going to go back and work on his total game. And that's the part that I love about Josh and that's one of the reasons why I love him so much. He Fits Buffalo's because he's such a blue collar guy that has earned the respect of his teammates. He's he's a highly competitive young man. That all he wants to do is win and doesn't care for necessarily the things that come with it as much as he does about about winning the throw he made. I think it was in New England. Back paneling throw of his career so far. I'm credible way. I didn't take a hit that he had and I mean he's that's the throws he's capable of making and we all know that and so. I'm just excited to know that he's working and the trust that I haven't Josh when he's not with us is important because I know he's working to hone his craft and I can't wait to see the Josh Allen that we see when he comes back here in a few months we'll Sean congrats on all your success and just as a football fan. I like watch your team kick ass physical you guys. Are you guys said people in the Mouth Defensive Guy? It's gotTa make you proud. Does we've got a great group of guys. I appreciate that lucky. Thank you good day. Pretty easy just listened to the I mean Chow McDermott's a really really high level guy. I'm even more of a bills fan after reconnecting with the guy his team's physical they coming for the pats and if Brady leaves I don't think it's out of the question. The Bills Win. The division next year. He had on a good point. You Talk People. Try to Nitpick Josh Allen and not Nitpick I mean. He has a struggles but he answered the bell last year in terms of the short and intermediate now he has to improve the deep ball accuracy. But like Sean said he's answered the bell every turn that's been asked of them that's going to be a tough thing to do improve accuracy where they need it. They need to get him a wide receiver but the bills defense is bad ass. They can run the ball John. Mcdermott legit coach bills are builder common. I think there are a borderline locked playoff team next year. I feel pretty confident saying that. The bills are probably GONNA make the playoffs three years three times. Four Years Sean. Mcdermott legit coach. Let's get to another legit coach now. Again I'm biased. But the bills are going to be back. I promise you that lions stink. Vikings are going through some turnover. They lost Evanston Everson. Griffen going to even free agency digs might get traded. They're not going to be going. Kirk cousins is just a Guy. The packers overachieved last year. Now they're still they're still good. They're the team to beat. But I I like the bears to bounce back and love macgyver Matt Nagy. Let's let's dive into it very very excited. I just had one bald brother. And Sean McDermott. And I'd say this guy's my original bald brother Matt Nagy head coach. The Chicago bears was what's going on man for sure you. I'll tell you what you gotta get the glee off your head right now. Go to that right there. You know where I live in California the sunshine. Let me tell you something Sean. Only three weeks. What's going on everything man? It's been great you know. It's always fun catching up with you and and You know just thinking back to The Times. We're in Philly breaking down guys and and all that and now here we are but in indy. Watching is a lot of great town and for us. I think this is the evaluation. Part is so crucial and trying to develop guys. How big your role in that I? It gets up there you know and I appreciate that Ryan Ryan Pace general manager and I work really well together in regards to just collectively collaborating on everything and so neither one of us have an ego. It's gotTa be this Guy. Got TO BE THAT GUY. We talked through it. And that's what's special white. Imagine you just did your media scrum with all the people from Chicago Number. One question. Quarterbacking is that's I mean your quarterback at heart I in a Texan with during the see something you take a lot of pride in that offense storrow there the venture I mean. Is that something have you? Have you still lose sleep or you kind of locked in now and you know what needs to happen? Yeah well it. It's it's crazy just because you can see how to how twenty eighteen and twenty nine hundred can be so different even offensively and so as a coach it's about solutions and fixing problems that you have in issues and that's what we've been doing. The competitive nature in all of us is trying to figure out the why part and you know. It's easy for everybody to dive right to the quarterback. It's easy for everybody to dive to different things and usually the quarterback is the one that gets the most And Mitch knows that he can play a lot better. He understands that. We know that we can coach better. We know that around him. We can be better offensively. There's no reason for us to To panic but let's fix. Let's fix what what the issues were and. I think now as we're going through this we're figuring stuff out. It's kind of crazy you chose you. How high the standard is first year? You Win The division next year. I think you talked about sometimes. Like three or four games. You want right. John Schneider said a couple of years ago remember Seattle. He's like everyone talks about. It's like we're three. When team went nine seven you went eight and eight but that you know that margin in the NFL is so small. Is there a position on offense beside the quarterback? Power runner but tied in something. You're kind of honed in on. Yeah we we need to make sure and yet why you know what John I would say. I'd start off at the tight end position. You know how important it is. It's always been this way back to Philadelphia and then in Kansas City with coach. Reid is making sure that you have Some tight ends. That can be playmakers. That can hold the point. At the Line of scrimmage into run game and then can do a little bit of both so we didn't have a guy last year that had over one hundred yards receiving as a tight end on a on on the whole season off season. And you know that's you know for those that don't know that number now does that make or break you know. That's not the only issue and we have. We have some guys on our team that had some injuries and there was a struggle to get on the field with trae Burton. Adam Shaheen but that's a part of the process so that's a focal point for us is to get better there and improve that part which could help improve other areas on offense. So we're looking at it at all and and that somewhere we're GONNA attack you get tired of the Mitch questions. No because it's a poor it comes with the territory. Now you mentioned in regards to the the eight and twelve and four is just brought to my attention if this was flipped now and it was eight the first year twelve and for the second year. It'd be simple. Yeah so but that's not how roles so we understand that and you know me better than a lot of people and you understand how competitive I am and just knowing how Ryan and I worked together knowing how the culture is of our players. You know John We. We lost four games in a row this year. And that's hard coming into building losing four in a row. Our guys never started pointing fingers. They stuck together. They whether storm we ended up winning four out of five games after that gave ourselves a chance to possibly make the playoffs until we lost to green bay takes the year so I was proud of our team for that midst. The quarterback in two thousand twenty. Yes yes and I think for us. That's estee no. It's something for him that he understands that he's got to play better. We want him to play better. But let's be better as coaches let scheme better Let's get the running game going more right. How are we going to do that? I don't know we'll see we're working through that. We're we're always GONNA add. Add weapons whenever we can. I think you saw what the chiefs did this year. You talked to any defensive coordinator. They're scared to death of the speed. So you're starting to see a trend there as well in this year's drafters there's a ton of those guys. Yeah there's a balance right because everyone talks about the run pass ratio. Andy Pass but you got to run the ball when you have the lead past past the gate. Get the lead run to win it. Is that Joe Philosophy. I do? I have my philosophy over time has been doing. What's working in every games? A little bit different so there might be a game where you come in and you feel like you really pound the ball and get to a second and four by running the ball and get six yards and throw a hitch route. Right there's just some they might have press corners that you don't you don't like to match up but in my opinion at some point in time you need to have a quarterback or you need to be able to throw the ball right to win you have two thousand twenty where it's just it's just that way and so it might not be every game but there's GonNa be a game where you're going to need that so I think that's the good part of our offense is that we do develop those guys and and now with Mitch being this offense for two years now. He has the foundation of the terminology of where we're at and now it's just a matter of him putting in the action and improving all across the board guys. It's bobby bones. I host the Bobby. Show and I'm pretty much always sleepy because I wake up at three o'clock in the morning a couple of hours later. I get all my friends together. We get into a room and we do a radio show. We sure are alive. We tell our stories. We try to find as much good in the world if he possibly can and we look through the news of the day that you'll care about also your favorite country. Artists are always stopping by hang out and share their lives and music too. So wake up with a bunch of my friends. I Ninety eight point. Seven W M Z Q in Washington DC or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. One thing I'm fascinated by broadened flip you brought in laser Europe quarterback coach at your heart. So you got a lot of quarterback coaches you know some coaches. I know I know Bela check and save big. On specifically determining an individual's role. So they know exactly what they're doing. Is that something before you made? Some of these hires that you had in mind exactly what you're looking for in specific coach from the outside. I haven't asked you about this. You've got a lot of quarterback coaches. Yeah right now and there's get three guys yelling at him right now your balance that you're right there's roles and then as long as you're clear with what does define roles are front with those you take a step back. Yeah little I do I do and I think that's a good point by you to recognize. That is what that does is when I can pull back and delegate entrust then it enables me to be a better head coach of the whole deal offense defense special teams Jonathan. I think last year were if I look back and reflect a where I could have been better. It could have been a better head coach overall in all three areas there and and that's where I'm a little. I'm excited to get back to that. Well takes delegation takes trust with those type of guys in these guys all have had experience in the NFL for a long time. And I respect all of them and so. I'm excited to see what they're going to do with this offense as we move forward. I WANNA cal. Poly we call it. Harvard of the West Coast. We have a model learn by doing. And you you just learn more about yourself whatever professionally personally when you go through something you get you become a head coach. You had been around coach read for a long period of time. But now you're in that big office like you said last year you kind of take a step back you realize God. I could've done this better. Did you have any clue what you were getting into? When you became a head coach just in terms of all encompassing. I mean your first year once a well. Yeah Yeah you're right. It's not like you went through rock to plan for everything. There's so many different silos involved head coaching role. People that need answers from you all the time. And you're you know coach Reid and Co Children. She's always joke with me that When I was a coordinator. Hey Someday your head coach. You're going to see you come in from six o'clock in the morning till six o'clock at night your doors being knocked on and I used to always think yeah. They're exaggerating by about eight hours. They're not literally that doors being knocked down from six. Am till six PM at night so you either have to come in super earlier. Say Stupor late when you want to get your stuff done and so for me. What I've learned is these last two years is it's really really important to surround yourself with people that you trust and you know are getting stuff done so that you don't have as many of those Knox and that's where for for a lot but then there's also the balance stained involved right you like that because I haven't seen on everything being doing the installs call plays but yet listening and being you know having been humble enough to know that these other coaches at your with have great ideas and that's one of the strengths. That coach Reid has. He surrounds himself with great coaches and he and then he he doesn't have a big ego. He takes all their ideas and uses them and it turned into a super bowl form. Did you feel times this year when it's kind of fell off the rails quote unquote the NFL? Because you were doing so much and you didn't have like I've been doing this for ten years so I know exactly where to turn left. Turn Right. It was just. You're in deep. You just have to kind of figure it out because you know it just got new weird position it was an hour and I was learning through processes so our coaches to our coaches last year. That were here. They all wanted the same thing. They're all really good guys. That worked hard and it just for whatever reason it ended up not being good for us as an offensive staff. And that you know there's there's hard discussions and conversations that you have to have at the end of the year we're all friends and but it is a business and you know. I wish guys nothing but the best. They're all great people and and for us so it's an. It's an exciting new time and we don't want to dwell on. What was the pass? We WanNA WE WANNA look forward to what's future and defensively. Obviously you happy last year for Your Guy. Getting the head. Coaching Job vig right right. Yeah but he's one of the best in the businesses you you go to Chuck Pagano who has a long resume of Leeann good defenses. But there is a transitional shirt you expect the defense to be a lot better this year than it was last year even though it was standard and the standard was so high from the year before. Kind of like our team you know. Twelve and forty eight and eight our defense breaking world records in two thousand eighteen on another. I mean that's how many touchdowns touchdowns you know. There was a lot and so two to come in as a defensive coordinator and get compared to that right away. That's hard vix a hell of a coordinator noses stuff. He's really good at what he does in For Chuck to come on in here. That's a tough transition. I thought he handled it really well. In gaining his players trust at knowing how how to scheme and how to build those relationships. But I think it's going to be even better this year because now he can not only will they learn who chuck is but chuckle or now who those players are and how to use their strengths and tweak what he does mean how many teams in the NFL have better core than you on defense with Khalil Akeem Roquan. And we got her back. And Eddie I mean every level multiple guys at the front the most important level and then two guys that can fly around. I mean Roquan. It's got a chance to be pretty small. Yeh No doubt about it and and I think for us and that's what hurt us last year. John is that we had akiem Hicks. Go Down Into Oakland game. The huge in the elbow that that that really hurt us in both of our middle linebacker eighth and our team leader and Roquan Smith. Down-the-middle are middle was hurting and that. But that's a that's A. We didn't have that the year before we didn't get injured. So that's part of football. So you're lucky you're backups. Are Pretty good and they played well. Quick came in. He's a free agent. He played really well. Who's with Kevin? Pierre Louis who is with us in Kansas City so that part was good but I think all in all we have a nice balance of vets. That are young and hungry. And they're they're they're kind of pissed off about what happened last year and they're ready to get going. We were telling me you took your kids. All Star weekend was there. I remember you and I used to bond over big okay see when Katie and Russ were really young. Sure and so. Who's your son's follow when they took off to their own got traded yet. They're they're they're they're still Speaking of VIC Fangio Mar. Gosh there is the brain trust. Are you know the Brain Trust They still follow Russell Westbrook. They're big Russell. Westbrook fans dwayne Wade. And so it's we just they. Warriors haters maybe a little bit rusty guy you know I think they just felt a little abandoned when Katie ended up taking off because they were you know being in Kansas City in a few hours away from Casey we used to go to some of the Games and as part of a part of the business and and just watching that talent down on that court seeing. What's down there at the All Star Weekend? Man is unbelievable. One thing I asked. Sean is when Steve Kerr got tired of the warriors. He became friends with Carol. And then new Dan Quinn and parcels. He he loves football like us. Those guys as mentors shirring bounce ideas since you become a head coach or maybe even before our their coaches and other sports that you talked. Yeah you're right so when I started when I got here it was it was coached. Joe Madden of the cubs. Now that's through Chicago. And that was great. 'cause he was a Pennsylvania Guy Throw a first pitch. Yeah yeah a couple I broke ninety but in basketball. Which is you know that probably low eighties. Good arm ended up becoming friends through Through podcast with coach K. Wow Yeah which was really neat to a couple of years ago and and so I just have. How do we not just have the ultimate respect for a guy like that? So that's that's right. Listen to his advice and who years. And he's a bears fan so that that's that's fun you know just this year in the offseason. Juwan Howard coaching at Michigan. Yeah so he came by and he's a bears fan so we got to hang out. We'll just talk talk philosophies and talk building cultures he spent a Lotta time around Pat Riley. Yeah right you know. He knows and so that that was really needed and coach. Doc Rivers got some cool friends. Yeah Gaga bears there bears fan. So we've built these relationships and for me what I would like to do now. They're they're busy time right now off time but just to be able to to listen to how they do things and how they teach what better. What better guys the three guys I just named you know. So there's there's several more out there but those are some of the ones that jump off. I know you become a little numb to it. All your head coach in the NFL. You've been in the NFL long time but you ever. I know you're just a big sports guy you like. I'm texting coach K. Right Yeah Yeah even doc rivers. He'd be when you grow up using the plane in the NBA. All of them. They're just there that you just there's that there's a special bond that you have within the mutual respect from the head coaching Cy. But then like you're saying growing up knowing who coach Kaye is and getting handwritten postcards from him Just letters you know all handwritten and being able to text back and forth and and just support one another and so that part is really neat being able to take it to the next level Tashaun learn techniques that he has on how he does things would be what I would WanNa do and then a guy like doc rivers you know like you said as a player with the Hawks and now what. He's done as a coach just the way. He shows so much support for his players in a way he goes about things for me. It's it's unbelievable Joe. Juwan Howard a guy who's not much older building. A new culture in Michigan taken over his alma mater passionate. Yeah Yeah and I just I love that part and these are all such humble guys. And that's what I grabbed from him. And Rhys really root for those guys what you got onto deck the rest of the off season. Well we're were hearing about forty five minutes you. We're we're getting together as a staffer. Schema vow so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA camera. We're we're working man we're working. That's what we did yesterday. We're going to do it today. I just think there's a lot of time. Where guys new coaches. Let's use it so we're going to get together work through some some scheme of Al stuff and really hammer through this draft and the free agent process coming up. It's always fun to see how that goes. And then just you know when you have a season that goes away ours where where you go eight eight you get that taste out of your mouth. Ready to start fresh. So when April twentieth comes in these players get back in here. It's a new. It's a new time for us and I'm really really excited. How do you balance right now? Watching free agents watching draft guys. Have you spent the last month doing that? Little bit of both yet. It's a juggling act. Would which is fine. You know there are some guys that pop up on the radar. Hey go check this guy out of that guy you know where your needs are and then you know as far as the the The draftable guys at the combine. You get a nice field while you're here in the last couple of days. There's a couple of guys that jump out at you that maybe you didn't think about you go back and watch tape. And I think that's the key is making sure you watch enough tape to truly evaluate these guys. Get you out of here on this Andy. Each may the Super Bowl. This year I went. I went out there for the week. Miami you go to Tampa next year. I'm going you might have to pay for it. But I'll be Gotcha I gotcha okay. You'll go in and be there all right.

I'm running on fumes by GonNa dig deep because at the end of the day. I'm just recording a podcast. So I'M GONNA do. A couple of middlekauff mailbag questions. Get you out here on this at John. Middlekauff is my instagram handle. Slide right up in those. Dm's asked me whatever you want. And I'll answering here. Gabe with the bears releasing Taylor. Gabriel prince do you think they're creating cap space to make a move at quarterback? I'd personally see more competition in the quarterback. I personally like more competition the quarterback room. I think they're definitely bring competition. But as you heard Nagy Not bullshitting me I mitch. They're starting quarterback Brady wants in which it doesn't feel like he's going to go the bears. But yeah. I just think that Mitchell starting quarterback he's got coaches ass up. It's just that simple gotTa Mitch Trubisky. Peter King reported the. Nfl is exploring Sunday and Monday. Night Experiment if the new playoff system is approved as a consumer. I think it's electric. Despite its disadvantages what the will lead to thoughts. I agree like you can't. How do you have a Monday night? Football game in. That team plays a Sunday when the other team is either getting a by played on Saturday. It's not fair there's competitive disadvantages and then there's just unfair but as a consumer. Give Me Sunday or Monday night or in. I mean they like to Ching Cha Ching Cha Ching. They like printing cash. That's what the NFL likes. They like moving the needle with viewership. And you put it on Sunday night and you put it on Monday night and people flock to this thing we call the couch and we turn on the television and we consume for three hours. That's what the League thinking. I do feel bad talking to someone who's go. Just the owners. Don't give a Shit. About what the coaches want. They don't care at all. They want to print money. That is their goal in a good at it in Monday. Night and Sunday night prince cash. So the everything's on the table when it comes donors. I think you know they're open to doing just about anything. Hey John Coward came out with a take the packer. She goes to the quarterback in round one based on the rookie. Wait skilled today. Is it worth taking a guy in sitting in for potentially three or four years the benefit of taking a guy round one and he's cheap? You could build around them. Keep up the great work. I the last part that I I think it's more like air. Rogers coming down the homestretch like he showed legit signs of. I don't WanNa say falling off the map but relative to his standards. He was not as good as we know now. This is a big year form. Like bounce back you just be like. Oh He's thirty six he's still got four or five years left. What if he keeps declining? You WanNa have a pitch in your back pocket. And that's that's a backup quarterback that young you can build around now. The hard part for them is they. Could you know argue? There are a couple players away from winning a super bowl right. You get a sweet wide receiver. You get tight end all of a sudden your offense legit. Your defense is already decent of you know you're competing to win the super bowl so I that would be the balance like I'd rather have. I'd rather get a wide receiver to go with devante and Erin inside a tight end in the off season. Like Austin Hooper and then get hooper. La- viscous tional Davante Adams Rogers. Let's roll in the running backs question for the pod. Since listening to you I agree that building a defense from the front to the back makes the most sense as a ravens fans. It worries me that we invest so much in the secondary over the front seven. This past season seemed to work out. What are your thoughts and Eric Decosta? In general and more specifically his philosophy when it comes to building a defense favorite podcasts. By far love you then Well Yeah I would always go defensive line. I the one thing the ravens though have done consistently developed a defensive lineman right I mean Daria Smith the Jude on Guy Right now. I didn't even know he was when I was in the League. They were always pumping out trying to think Mcphee draft in the mid rounds. They're really good if the steelers dominate drafting a wide receivers the Ravens dominate. Drafting Defensive Lineman so I wouldn't be that worried the Ravens. Just know what they're doing. They're coaching wink Martindale. Just he's probably a lifetime defensive coordinator. He's just a big time coach. I I'd feel pretty good about it. I was you from a talent standpoint. How far off do you think the giants are from contending the NFC East? Someone told me at dinner. Last night was at dinner with some of my scouting buddies at work within Philly and They're not they're all over the country now. Different teams so. I don't want to throw him under the bus but I. I don't think there there are bottom five roster about if I roster saquon elite player one of the best players in the League. One of my buddies actually likes Danny dimes so they got saquon they got Danny dimes. What else their offensive line stinks their defense. They don't have any defensive players. They don't have one good defensible air. Why I guess the Guy. They drafted last year from clemson solid. But he's a nose tackle. They got a long long way to go Seahawks fan here so obviously not the biggest supporter that being said. I Love San Fran being good again this year because it have rejuvenate. The hawks niners rivalry of the reason past whenever both of our teams are good. The Games are wild including some of the most hard-fought of the season. Some of my favorite football moments have come from these games from Sherman tip in the end zone bass chancellor absolutely Deccan Vernon Davis clean it by the way I agree. I definitely enjoy it so much. More the teams are good. The rivalries heated. What are your thoughts on the rivalry? Do you guys do you guys have as much passion and excitement behind it. Do you do me like me? Personally I free in love it. My favorite game of the year. I'd say fifteen years ago my favorite game in the NFL Pittsburgh Baltimore. I like bloodbaths. I watch football for the violence for the physicality now. I love the skill. I love quarterback throwing touchdowns. I love running back a bus now big runs. But I'm old school. I'm thirty five year old old school football viewer and I love people getting declared and I was at the Monday night game? The wind overtime that they kicked the game winning field goal with no time left. That thing was a war zone. The second game in Seattle. I mean the the hits that go on there. Seattle was not as good as the niners and they basically came within an inch of beating them twice because Seattle's a heavyweight fighter like Rocky Balboa. You know like they don't have that many sweet players. I mean Russell's star but their Oscar wasn't that great. How do they do it? Because they are mentally and physically tough. And I'll give kyle a lot of credit. They are too. So it's it's my favorite game of the year right now it now. I'm biased. But it's sweet game. I've had a scenario thinking of clear out. Some cats mason. Thought I'd see what you think. Would it be possible to franchise Armstead and package him? Andy Ford and pick thirty. One is getting big to the Washington redskins to get number to chase young a second or third round or on top. I don't know what the dead cap would be for Ford. Not that high would move would potentially open up some cal salary cap space. Just split the idea out here spitballing. The idea out here. Yeah I don't think that's on the table. I mean the red skins actually defense lines pretty good again. The redskins might take quarterback. I'm telling you their defense fine at a couple of corners to go there front. Seven's good dwayne ask. It stinks a San Diego native. I really hope ever go somewhere. Good so the two things. I want both can happen river to win a super bowl and the LA charges suck forever charges such a clown show defense man. What an embarrassment to the League Would you like to grow your instagram? Pictures like organically or make your profile look balanced and reach out to maximum. People know. Just WanNa Post instagram pictures. I don't give a shit about that. Is there a scenario? That Carolina makes a big splash and makes a huge hall to trade off for borough they hire Jill Brady and Matt Rule may be looking to guarantee his success with a franchise quarterback in eleventh hour situation now. I think they're gonNA take get a quarterback. Next year I think the panthers going to be one of the worst league trader. Cut Cam and just indistinct Lawrence Lifelong giants Fan with the number four. Pick are we at the point. Where train down is an option for a bundle of picks. Is it strong class? So I imagine trading down can be the worst thought. The problem is Dave. Gettleman has never traded down in his career in like eight draft or seven draft. Peter King Road at not one down in his entire career thing about that. They are nuts. That is that's crazy.

Barstool Rundown - April 22, 2020

"Totally Kevin Strength so Santa the goal. Jeff he's a good all right. is the rundown. What Day was April? What Twenty second what is it? Twenty second twenty second brought to you by only craft mixers. They said to drink one. But I'M GONNA get fucked up. I already had one pizza. would say sponsor George Strait. I put I put it invoke right now. I know they're good. I this is. This is the Ginger Beer Lima drinking. That's what I got. I already had one with with bucker though. Oh delightful so I can mow Hito type. Situation Leaves in touch a jar fucking Guba. Jog maps in If you go to owens measures DOT COM are still fifteen fifteen percent off. It's actually a perfect for glass like the perfect amount of block of perfect bound to the mixer and keeps it clean. It's good quality drink. They are the official mixer. Now barstool sports. Shoutout Owens mixers very good actually very logo. Yeah the little donkey. Yeah Yeah Yeah All right so they. Nick Sabin the draft tomorrow night. That's the first story. Yes and the topics draft hours every time now for story Nick. Saban saying he doesn't have email which is four billion. Is you know if if someone emails the mortgage the text. That's the first story. I kinda feel sorry for people that I see walking around looking at their phone running into the wall not even known if somebody's getting shot across the street and they don't even know it because they can't take their eyes off their phone. I I kind of. I'm in the other camp. That's the best tight end of all time came back. I I'll do that first. Guy Out of the Timing Rob Gronkowski y love. Gronk is join up Brady and Tampa Bay path. Trade and GRONK has seventh round pick for fourth round pick. Now Leroy dog at the story. I heard about this happening along. Ask time ago probably as well. Yes I'm listen. I'm very happy that they're gonNA have this relationship I pose this question out there. My second favorite team they are I accept I hate Steve Chad but I did pose this question. Who has more high offseason who is declared superbowl champs faster? The Cleveland Browns of the Tampa Bay box fair fair point. Yeah of course they have hype over. There is room for my move forward but you play the game on the field right but the the difference is the Cleveland. Browns have never done it. You the Bucks. Got Two guys who have done it. A Little Book Gronk reporting but other weapons to joining a team. That already had some talent giants. Are we GONNA say older? Not because people say all my old. Is Dave Else so you know so if you were sold last year if you're on ground came back to the Patriots you guys would be hosting a your own parade saying what you did with Antonio Brown but now that it's not on your team he's all washed off and all that no Nana Know Kevin. I wanted them back but I mean you got stay over here acting like he's got to twenty five girls. You got a guy. I love Gronk but you guys looking. You'd be saying elbows off the audit act like these guys are in their prime. You would be saying all this if they were on the New England patriots saying Hashtag still here absolutely I said how are you and I said has still here anyways. Daniel Oh okay we need to have an NFL season because it's great theater like this. Is Stephen The facts? Let's just stop for a second and just realize like the fact that Stephen the world's number the number one bucks fan he only pods barstool sports and Sieben chase like he's employee number like sixteen. He's like the he is like one of the first of the second wave once we moved to New York and the underground bubbly game. No He's not underground bubble. Gang and angled hate this guy. The fact that he liked just walked over to my desk two years ago it was. Hey Do you think I could produce you know the radio show and then like starts talking on the mic and everything starts blossoming. And he's he he's this guy. It's fucking crazy. He went from like Ed Reed Middleman to have his own podcast being producing show. Yeah fucking kin. And now he's got the most accurate and Kevin and now he's deport noise. Dad YOU'RE GONNA. I said this in my thing I believe it i. I will probably bet doesn't make this or that. It would pen if we get to act up and going here. The Patriots will have a better record than I liked. That doesn't that mean that I don't. I don't expect you to root against Tom. Brady I get it. But you're the only person I've heard even taking a stand being like we're going to be better than new. Everyone else is just like all proteins. What the fuck is that? I'll I I will root for them but I'm very clearly like if there's a knife fight I stab brady and growing so fast. I don't even know how my convictions are. Not Mixed up by the way. I wasn't allowed to say it but I don't care them say oh. I tried to get permission but I'm like now part of the Brady six. So did you see videos? I Made I made the You know those old thing might say they're old from TB twelve saying Spring Chicken F C. So like you should be taught he should WanNa be you. You should be talking a little bit of Shit. This is the way it should be. I your pussy of your past fan and you're just fucking bending listen. I'm rooting them but built the video. I was here with Dolecek. Walk through check. All I love love I always said I will follow Bella check in the war and that's what I'm bill. So what happens if Brady if they go to the Super Bowl and the Patriots? Don't go to the playoffs. That's a feather obviously in and Brady's cap for years but I don't think you're going to know the truth scorecard so Bella check sunk by the way there have been comments from Patriot players. Like we're still here. We lights I mean that that should be the case. That of course should be the competitive. Would've Tom Brady came out and was like Fuck Bill Bell. Jack what would you do that? Same won't really change it. You would still like him but just because it's like he's listening but it's kind of art. Dave win gone for mass. Doesn't I launch down smash it's GonNa hurt it? Listen I'm sure he's going to have a good season. He's playing that weak ass division out there and they're just brought up. What what what you say see. South is weak. Yeah it ought to go to Buffalo. I Uni all year if the bucks are awesome. Just like of course they're winning. They're playing against the Saints Falcons of the Panthers Joe. Easy on route from listen. I if somebody's breed brought you sticks super bowls in the best. Run of anything like yeah. I'm not joking. I was watching the Bulls thing in tweet. It right away when you think about like it's so much easier to dominate and basketball. Because Howard one so when you think about what the Patriots had done it. There's GonNa love those guys forever. It's just weird right but it's just weird still. You're seeing now have to favorite teams. That is not how did not have to see what you're saying is correct. It's just you gotTa admit apart of US. Going to be a little heartbroken win. Like gronk does his first gronk spike. And they're yakking. It does all the videos all skits. Yeah but if you pose it this way. The Auction Patriots Miss the playoffs box when the Super Bowl Bucks go in what Owen Sixteen in the Patriots are wildcard. I'm taking the wild like I'm okay. You think that you are in the minority the majority without thinking. Because that's the problem I think is pretty split. I think minority. I know you don't WanNa see Tom Brady limp out of out of his career. But like he's not one hundred team anymore if if you were signing up for another team to play well and your team to be bad. That's crazy to me crazy but there's no different again. Use the Jordan Bulls fans was on the Tom? Brady retired and a couple of years became a bucket one thing. If Jordan went from the bowls dynasty to another team that year but he but other Montana to fuck in manning the bucks aren't are relevant teams the Patriots. Right not a rival. But the Jordan thing doesn't hold up because you would either be mad at Jordan or matic. People in Montana Montana holds up but the difference is I would say Seattle Montana where people like. I'm now achieve San rung the differences lightly though Dave slight differences Jerry Krause basically said like go like we're rebuilding like I think the Patriots so WanNa Brady under the right terms. Did they not well. That's the part that we don't know. I think pretty much what happened from from people know Brady and everything along the way and even Brady's kind of articles when Bella checked tried to basically keep Garoppolo in craft stepped in. He's like that was. It is beginning of which is fine. I'm fine with that in a minute. Doing so to be honest so weird way bell. Jack was doing what he always does. And then the grumbling I've heard is brady wooded state if Bella check basically room cells on the altar and was like I fucked up. We need. You begged them and that he didn't do it. That's what we bother me because I think I know that's not ballot. Check Style and I know some people said if you if you don't if built a Bell Jack doesn't be Bella. Jackie wouldn't have all this excess. But I think part of being like a fucking awesome leader. An awesome coaches a little bit of humility. Yeah but I also wouldn't try. Also sorry I also think Belching Act does. What he thinks is best for the football team. I want which Jason Statham or I think what's best long-term satire who who knows who knows you may love. I don't know if stood them like. Yeah if he is the next. Tom Brady that egg on my face. I just think that what would be best team is Tom. I'm sorry to they got ahead of myself. Did you watch the like in the thirty for thirty on Bledsoe now so like when? Bela check Brady over bledsoe ever. We crucify bell right right and Yeah so it is brady than virtually. He's the plays in their Kevin. Brady I want three years. Guaranteed I guess like if a lot of it if it sounds like it's not like he was mentally checked out quote where he said that he was. He knew he was gone before. The season started Martin several years ago. That would be a good time to say. I'm sorry. Let's finish this thing off and then I'll find my guy. This is not unusual. I said from the beginning if you go back. I've said it hundred times. I didn't think Brady would end his career with the Patriots because I thought he was gonNA play forever and it wouldn't work with Belgium coming back this year. Mark my words there was zero point zero point zero percent chance he's leaving New England zero. There may be less than zero but I. I think that it just happened a little bit earlier. Well which is funny. Because he's forty fucking three away it's all panned out. I feel like he had a couple more dave last question. How how are you gonNA deal Steven Shay this year? Oh He's not like the the problem is he is a photo that you're not used to like most foes that you have they'll be arrogant in a way that you can kind of squash them or like they'll make a mistake semantically or something like that he is. He is so sweet of a person. But so cocky of a person did it. It's easiest mixture cure with you is. That's what you're GONNA get Stephen Chair. Yes you might just being an asshole. But he's really nice. I listen to all so and they may be just good enough to get your heart ripped out. So I'll Dave think about this okay. 'cause like I love Stephen Shades my guy but think about what's going to the. Let's say the pages. Don't make the playoffs in the Bronx. Get THE BY. And then they win their first round game. He's come in Monday morning. He's going to walk to your office like Dude. You see that time but right but he's Brady right but he's going to set himself up for big by the way I think that again. I'm not just saying lip service the Patriots GonNa Make Class People I. There's a part of me that honestly loves this because I just keep picturing annabel check with the orange juice I have so much faith in global. Check that all anyone doing his butts this that in. He's just sitting there like with the RS. Yeah Okay we'll see we'll get if bill is right it will be the all time fucking victory lap. It'll probably answer the question one way or the other and and we'll see but I don't forget I go to my grave saying one of the best Patriot teams they ever had by the end of the season. Was the Matt Castle. I honestly believe that that team was pretty eighteen in one team. Basically it was but whatever eighteen one he he puts together. That's the point. And even if some of these other quarterbacks Garoppolo verdict may be out. I think they could have one with the kid in Indianapolis. They've drafted like other good quarterbacks. Do you think that this team right now is like the same level of what the Condo? But that's it's it's IT'S A. It's a rival. This guy I put together the fucking giants diva I so much fucking confidence in him if I feel like this is for him. Why just how? Brady's his via ignited so as Belgium for sure. I think there's a couple. There's a chance that a couple years from now. Br Bell Jack. Re Re tools rebuild and is back on top. Tom Brady retires but in the immediate short term. If it looks like they could have been a winning team if all they still have top grady. It's going to be like if you're going to be we'll see in. The defense is good. Yeah right so this you guys a hundred million times. If in it's not necessarily even Brady Bella check I always take the coach in the NFL. I agree with that. So we'll take quarterback crime on a line like that agree with that. Actually I would take the quarterback in his prime but given the years I would take it like if you if you had to say right now you get you get Bella checker. Patrick Mahomes for us of his career. You take check if you told me before you could have the greatest quarterback to the greatest coach of all time starting from scratch. I'm taking coach. Yes but given like right now if you were like giving yeah I mean maybe yeah okay. We're on the same page now. We can go the next saving. We already did this story the stock. Luckily I got rid of a lot of it because tank. I really gave. You WanNa give me a shout out. Gave a winning pick today. Kevin did Y- goes eight tax me. He goes do you play Xbox I was like yeah he's like I got a controller last night on the give away and I was like. Oh sick as like us. You buy some Microsoft stock. He's like why'd you know something? I was like well I own xboxes and I'm playing a lot of it and that was your tech years. Well no it was a Glenn e balls pick like Glenn thinking that the fucking lunch orders. I'm planning to xbox. How could the stock NOCCO UP CONTROLLERS PRETTY SICK? And you and you won money on this story. I just was busy trading. But it's like brought back flashbacks. A starts there's a guy who ran in New York in Harlem Rent Heat Heat. Since the boss has cancelled he ran. The marathon is roof deck ran service for five hours. And then he he like I kinda GonNa let off the hook for a minute by trying to raise money but then at the end of the video sense. He's like the real resides. It is the show that you can run a marathon like outside on the rooftop. How big was well? You know what wait a minute I kinda like that. It's like you don't have to run it and be like the tin foil thing and you can run whatever you want. That's almost a little bit anti marathoner. No no he had someone holding a fucking finish line if videotape you self crossing the fucking fat. That's tough all right. I was always saying you don't have to do it on Marathon Day. You don't have to make a spectacle it'd be enough during the did you captain. Cons Defy Kane is fucking. Living Room Ran. His table was like Iran little circles for like hours. I don't even council like army guys do that forever. Nhl Schools would come back in July. That seems fast right way. That seems like a credible source. I thought it was the NHL a bunch of sorts. Also Kevin Hayes it by accident. People ran with it when he was on the boxing. But now it's like thumb public it'd be neutral sites with it. Sounds like no fans but like multiple games the same neutral site wrong man. No Man's can be so weird they stay though these these things are always like. There's four cities that they say are under control but as soon as it's not under control or a bunch of people get it. It's over my question. How why like everyone is is in? The South is basically just like it's over right. We gotTA keep doing it. Well I don't know I kind of think they're just being like we're going to catch care over that we're you know we were saying he was like. I might fly to Georgia to get a haircut if Arkansas and did it I go to like the fucking Arkansas Derby and drives the best. Yeah Springs Arkansas. Yeah that's a fucking great great time. I think it already happened but no it is not as best. They moved it. It's Kentucky Derby Day. Any doing like to heat now because all of her. I want a gap Shit okay so that's good. That's good news. I don't know was that good news. You get these okay. And the law is running around fucking parks. Tampa Bay like get fucking arrested like what they're doing out there. I've gotten have you guys seen confrontations yet. It's electric. I saw confrontation walking around neighborhood. Where like someone like these? Two women walked to call this guy and his baby and he just fucking lost it. I saw one outside the supermarket. My mother has called the cops onto people. Wow it's awesome.

I'm walking. I got no problem with walking. It's a weird thing. Though like yesterday I was walking and this dude was playing like soccer with his kid and the ball came in front of us. There was someone walking the other way. And we all just froze. What do we do? Now who's GonNa get the ball? Like what like do I moved? Why not move? It's fucking bizarre. I just I just became a nasty guy yesterday. Oh you have to be a mascot. I I just keep it on my blog.

He's like a wiggle dicker now Like he turned a t shirt into a body suit. That was the disturbing that was not the one that went big. Yeah why as they say by the way I I tweet out clip the draft. Obviously going to be something with the elway was speaking and he. I mean he looked like a Hologram so this is going to be the draft. We're going to have holograms. I mean John Elway looks like a fucking hogger is going to be. So we so weird. It's all these guys are like trying to figure out why fi in their house for the first time something's getting catastrophically wrong right. We have a big show. Planned and above lights. Like client Seltzer. But this thing they're in cahoots with the NFL. Like the booth thing makes me WANNA puke. Well we have one too so anyone who wants to do it. We're still doing it.

And we're all going to so it's like a people are going to do. I don't like the Bud Seltzer one because I know goodell's Inca who signed off on it. Yeah but he's a. He wants to be boot. Yeah he loved but he doesn't he doesn't he doesn't WanNa be booed lows going to be. You can't beat them. Join them sort of thing but he didn't get the Patriots won the Super Bowl. He didn't want that type boarding this type. Avoid juicy right all right. I'm GonNa Watch the end of the day. I'm pretty flat right now. So that's good I got back. I forget what I was up. A quarter million up so even the last two days out Microsoft Microsoft. I'll think of another tip for you. I need it though like today like you got to do it. You go by before the market closes and then because everything happens when it opened to. You're holding overnight. That's why did last night. Thank God Microsoft Amazon closed at two twenty eight no at three twenty two thousand two thousand three hundred twenty eight last night. It opened Three three hundred seven is up two points. That's how it works. So you know I now. I wake up at night and in the morning I wake up at six. Am Look the futures and you're already not it's no different than waking up and seeing the score yup pretty much that's great. That's great faulk. All right okay.

"In a future ravaged by climate change and fossil fuel dependency a special agent the world's largest oil corporation descends into the depths to search for missing kid of the Buddhist strong and deep sea station the second oil ages a fiction podcast in a futuristic horror and intrigue each short-form episode drags Listener Through Media Who's in the steelers listen man as we go into November they got more wins in the browns now the schedules are not equal like the browns H. Premiers October thirty first listen on the iheartradio apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast Dan are just kicking ass and taking names right now in those two deserve a lot of credit the bears man Ryan offer by not ideal and then we'll dive into just some other little things I saw around the League and obviously the Middlekauff mailbag like we do the players you pick and that's he's going to have to he's going to have to pivot this off season and figure out a replacement for pace back to the Shawn Watson he's going to be hard to live that one down and as a GM you know you're not defined by record your defined in just his performance on Sunday was just fantastic some thoughts on Kyle Shanahan whose an Richard Sherman who the forty niners every show at John Middlekauff is my instagram handle and those DM same as my twitter handle slide up in them and I'll answer your questions weekend and we're going to dive into once we get past them football game the three teams in the NFL that have really separated themselves Deshaun Watson in what is going on Oh patriots niner Seattle La play tough schedule but the steelers with Ben in a sling and I got news for You ben this anybody three and our podcast me middlekauff back an atom again Tuesday morning Wednesday morning and the dolphins are probably not GonNa win a game though I say it over and over there not the worst team in the league their efforts pretty damn good they try really hard they stink their organization literally put it on the season they traded every legitimate player they have except Xavier Howard Ryan Fitzpatrick tries really hard it's just good enough for you his mistake in the draft the browns listen I I don't know how many times we're going to beat the dead horse but there are a total embarrassment down seventeen nothing in the first quarter and foxborough late in the season and you see like team with one or two wins playing pretty well on Monday night football put yourself in that situation as just a professional but for the show it's it's the way I like to keep you guys involved listen the steelers are going to move to three and four and the dolphins row and seven right here on the on the podcast how it's how we interact we don't take can't take calls because this isn't technically live show while I mean I'm as I'm talking I'm live over the hell you're listening now we got a lot of football had a had a great weekend football were so I thought just watch the Monday night football game easy couple of games against the browns the bengals the jets I wouldn't quite write them off and I think sometimes when we get these crazy terrible matchups Oy I don't blame him sometimes just WANNA eat and drink gold ones you know in the fall you don't have much to do but the steelers are three and four they play the colts this weekend and then their schedule gets if everyone in like your individual industry is watching you on a given day in let's say you're having a bad quarter or a bad year you're going to try really art let's say you're a presentation and your industry every single human in your industry watchers that presentation you're going to bring your game so I am never ever shocked when terrible teams like the dolphins you know our winning at halftime in a Monday night football game everyone's watching their humans they get it fans even when the talent is not really equal and for the steelers like you know if Mason Rudolph can just somehow not turn the ball over the league their families like we're all tuned into Monday night football that's why you tend to get unless the jets you know pretty competitive game are they do have a fighting chance because they do have some pieces on offense juicers Stud deontay Johnson can fly James Washington ability the steelers could compete eight eight ish nine seven it's going to be a little hard to catch the ravens but someone texted me tonight you think they'd catch the Raven I was watching the fourth quarter I'm like what is my take going to be on this game I still haven't really decided but I had I had a lot of good thoughts on injury he he's big band by about December you're going to be big Big Ben he gonNa put Awesome Lbj now he's got a long time got the off season to shed that way but he going to be a big I'm like well the Ravens got the Patriots this weekend so they'll be five in three in the steelers would be two games back now obviously they're gonNA play each other Mike Wallace like he's got the new guys and they historically drafted pretty well and this is a tough place to play it's a passionate fan base so I theory playing with his college teammate should be decent James Connors a good player you know their defense is playing a little bit better now and it's not out of the realm of again so you get to control your destiny a little bit there but my Tomlin's record speaks for itself he's never had a losing season now this biggest challenge by far he's playing with but that's why they're the Pittsburgh steelers not let's say the Tampa Bay buccaneers in the Miami Dolphins they have standards they have a culture they have a business and you're totally right off the steelers now am I more inclined to think they're going to be six and ten than nine seven one hundred percent but when you have a brand to maintain so if I'm a steeler fan you know what I go to sleep tonight were three and four and I do appreciate the mindset we don't we don't we have everything from classic and bold colors too ridiculously fun prints you can match your significant other in undies socks and amazingly soft lounger a culture and a belief like you watch teams tonight one team just said I'm punting in August the steelers would that were offering twenty percent off your first order

you're not totally impressed your first pairs on us on top and it's not like let's not act like the more Jackson is Patrick Mahomes here let's let's see him throw for three hundred yards and a couple of games against good teams before we just Hodge's Mason Rudolph at quarterback and in Rothlisberger and Levian bells long gone and Antonio Brown's long-on plaxico bursts long non and Emmanuel Sanders everyone I'm Jonathan Shokrian the founder of Mayonnaise DOT COM Meoni's launch eight years ago on the promise to deliver the world's most comfortable underwear for men and women Eh were celebrating twelve million pairs sold in over one and a half million customers mundy's uses micro modell fabric which is a full three times softer than cotton. Jake you diversify like Ray kroc once said Michael Keaton the McDonald's movie fantastic it's called founder he says we're not in the Burger business where they offer something in common they're very very well diversified now mode I'd say most people start with doing one thing really well just like football when he they may own parts and pieces of businesses and other states that are just consistent cash flow that mailbox money they call it then they have their own cats in an industry known for pushing unattainable beauty standards I wanted to create a platform for self expression where everyone could take part exactly as they are today scouted they're usually the president CEO main owner of that business whether it's a farming operation whatever whether it's printing paper who cares but the I'm talking guys worth not seven figures or even eight figuring I'm talking nine figures very very high end assessment and typically would light Heinz field on fire before they punted on a season now I don't always agree with that I wouldn't have traded a first round pick for Mingka oh act like we can't catch anybody I'd say you know what fair I I respected so as of right now there's about one forty four left steelers more and more as the season goes on this deal find ways to win games you gotta respect the commitment to their brand of will do whatever it takes to win okay let's get into something that really stood out to me this weekend and I thought about it when I was in a wedding I was I was at a wedding in Yosemite it's this they play good special teams and they dominate on defense same thing with the Sean Payton drew brees out for a while don't worry we'll just run the ball teddy bridgewater we'll have moments I'm good enough and it's pretty clear right now I would also put Minnesota and Green Bay on the next here Green Bay early in the season their defense was awesome in California the majority of my life never been there in I realized why so many people rave about it's awesome but at this wedding I was probably the poorest individual there there were as teams in the NFL right now are by far the most diversified when you look at Sean Payton you cow Shanahan and you look at Bill Belichick steam they do a lot of different things well they twenty-seven fourteen the dolphins covered fourteen points. There's a lot of points take on Monday night football but I you know I crushed that make a trade but the in California beautiful absolutely gorgeous if you've ever seen the movie solo I think it's on Netflix Dude that scales the mountain without a rope crazy ass dude but just beautiful area I people when you meet them if they're farmers whatever they do you go well they own like three separate businesses and separate industries they may own a building with a bunch of units that they ran out I UNA affected by recessions the super super rich because they got shit all over the place and so one market goes they're also involved in other markets in how many issues that they can withstand a bad game they can you know what the forty niners defense is bound for a clunker one of these games that'll be a game it's hard for me to trust Kirk cousins but I think that's the difference of the those top couple teams kind of the next group with so many flaws a really good defense like forty nine for example have a great defensive line they have good linebackers they have excellent DB's and they're the best rushing team in the NFL and the as you gain money you start kind of expanding out so no matter what happens you talk to financial people right now they can't think recessions coming who's usually the dateable other playmakers that are serviceable then you've got an elite defense all these teams play good special teams we all know about the Patriots so if one day Jimmy Garoppolo is off tap out when times get a little shitty because guys like middlekauff for like what are you doing trading for Minka Hell Yeah we're trained for Minka because the browns stink the bengals are worse several really really successful business in just kind of BS in over cocktails now breaking news here but the thing you always learn I think you're gonna be okay I gotta DM this week from someone that was like middlekauff get off the patriots nuts was that like a cool arms of like other businesses and they're usually faced people like me and you get screwed if you're living paycheck to paycheck you're the one that's really impacted and I think the olds true now defense and running the football it travels well now for the Patriots they won't have to travel they basically clinched homefield the niners the saints in the Patriots You well Defensive Guy Payton in Kyle our offense of guys businessman you start doing something specific and then the more money you're going to need the play defense because whether you have a home game or whether you're on the road that shit always works in right now those top teams and just the talent they have on defense is really rolling in one thing's clear when you get to the playoffs and it's ring true since the sixties and it still the NFC are all doing that they're very very well balanced and it's hard to do this in the modern day NFL especially once you pay a quarterback you did you know advantage and we're not even in November but when it comes to the NFC when you're talking about Minnesota obviously the saints the forty niners you're going to need to run the ball what are you doing like it's just I just acknowledged greatness and they've been kicking the crap out of the league since I was a sophomore in high school I'm now thirty it's Kinda fallen off the map for the standards we're talking about in right now they're becoming an Aaron Rodgers name again which is fine but for them to win a super bowl or the football league I don't know what to tell you and the saints their biggest issue over the years when we flip this century right it was the defense the defense the Defense Zuber they're gonNA have to play better defense and you go Minnesota there Neva is actually playing pretty well they really can run the ball and if kirk cousins throwing the ball you could argue they'd be in the top tier develop guys I'm seeing it in my backyard a killer weatherspoon goes down the forty nine or starting quarter opposite Richard Sherman they bring in an undrafted free agent to fill in hi big thing if I'm paying an offense coordinator or you know my head coach is making whatever he's the play caller then you know my defensive coordinator is making seven figures the ball dumping off run screens to kill in the running backs and just play the patriots their offense has been hit or miss as figuring out all these new pieces it doesn't even matter I think we see so many coaches around the league make excuses we can't get it done we don't have the talent come on man there are so many guys that are so they didn't even skip a beat they did not lose a game the only game they lost was when the game drew brees got hurt it then once he got week to prepare summit in two thousand eight two thousand nine zero they've been eight straight AFC championships they've won six two revolts they've been nine if you're not on their nuts figure it out bro what are you getting paid all this money like I guess the NFL two billion dollar industry there are a lot of billion dollar industries where you know the equivalent of what he just had to pick he's had multiple use the kid just can't stop making place Robert Sala that's seven figures they're paying them every year is earning it and the deal with equipped you don't have to deal with anything most of these places don't even pick the players just whoever you got coach them up don't make excuses and right now the the point fingers at just coast these guys up at your job coach them up you don't have to deal with ticket sales you don't have to deal with marketing you don't have to deal with travel wouldn't hang with some of those Sean Payton offenses when drew brees was putting historic numbers now what are they do really well texting my offensive coaching buddies throughout the leave your like Dennis Allen Games now Joe Staley broke his leg like a month and a half ago they started a six round rookie at left tackle who wasn't even their third tackle best teams in the League obviously Bell Jack has made an excuse in fifty years he's not an excuse guy the forty niners and the saints right now the saints last drew brees the real estate business like McDonald's all the real estate in owns all the buildings everyone's like oh they make burgers they push a bunch of yeah they make their money on land and I think a lot of L. Shanahan and the offense must score forty points we know they have that in the back same with the Patriots like at the end of the day if your offense is the problem with the Patriots and you've got Tom Brady is your quarterback right in the league and now they added a maintainers they can throw the ball now you get drew brees back you got Alvin Kamara who's gonna come back from injury you got one of the best receivers in the League and Michael Thomas You got coordinator ain't making seven figures maybe five hundred Grand but defensive coordinator is in the NFL Megan one point two one point five two million dollars I don't want to hear excuses coach guys and we'll play great defense will play good special teams doing a lot of things well that's the issue right now like Kansas City even when moms comes back they just they're not diversified enough their defense just what's the point of all this work during the week the best coaches in this league and it's always been this way but you see it more and more now than ever are just such good teachers the right tackle played in the AF that league that went bankrupt about four or five games in the AF mcglinchey it's been out for I don't have any hair so yeah on their nuts I guess I mean W- have you watched them play I made are are you new to this thing called not only just don't complain just whoever shows up get the job done and when you look at your squad you you have to have a balanced team and if you're not offense of coach your defensive coach whoever you choose to be that defensive coordinator and then his coaches they have to be able to develop guys because nowadays so many of these coaches when was the last time you watched your home movies if you're like most there's a box in your closet of videotapes film reels and photos that don't get watched worse they're degrading hi I'm nick and I'm Adam ten years ago we started legacy box to help families convert their aging media to digital here's how it works Phil Legacy box with your camcorder tapes film reels and photos we they don't bitch and Moan and complain they get the job done they play with whoever shows up because in this league guys get hurt last night I'm watching the the when you get him in the off season in the regular season that's what you're paid to do coach I always thought this one I worked in the league coaches that just lived in the film room over four hundred fifty thousand families of US legacybox and we've been featured on Good Morning America Rachel Ray and the today show dust off those recorded moments and preserve your family's his okay let me hit on really quick I want to bring something up on the forty niners and you know who was there for tackle because our third tackled pours knee and training camp I didn't hear cow bitch in a moment he just gets it done so you've got teams at a well diversified you got up to four weeks ago or four months ago he was going to be a scout for the dolphins dude throwing touchdowns trying to make place the best coach of this league here's The saints the packers and the Vikings like two of those three teams are locked in the NFC championship game I would be floored otherwise they're just too well put together three so it can be easily passed down for generations experienced peace of mind and enjoy reliving the glory days order your legacybox today visit

watch and share legacy box is the world's largest most trusted home movie and photo digitize their players obviously coaches are going to spend a lot of time by themselves in a film room but on the point of the sport on Sunday it does not matter so you're going to have to hit on some mid round picks there's a reason these coach I say it all the time you hear it from a million people now you're the coaching and are allowing it to happen and these top teams and I think this is why at the end of the season we get to the final four aren't you going to be shocked if it's not the Patriots are GonNa be there the night the NBC Nike Andy Reid we don't Patrick Mahomes Mail this thing in coach Matt Moore You know he was coaching high school but Teddy Bridgewater would be much better than the forty niners backup quarterbacks and I I like moans but great offense coaches and I mentioned this coach read with Matt spoke so highly of him last year when they sign Richard Sherman the way he spoke about him it was like yeah they weren't winning but they had some legitimate I supported kyle the first two years it was clear he was a really really good coach the players guys like Joe Staley saying the players that had been there and done that you know variables going against them the first year they never quarterback last year Jimmy got her we've talked about it a million times but the one thing you see right now in his defined by Offense Montana Walsh Yum hell even Steve Mariucci Jeff Garcia Terrell Owens too with the forty niners is when kyle is equipped it's a wrap he is such a good play collar his rhythm always like for a team that when you say San Francisco Forty niners you think Oh west coast offense their defense man in right now it's impossible the events of the forty niners had for those three years under harbaugh his first second and third year was elite and Bowman and nineties teams and the team ninety four that had Steve Young was the NFL MVP had jerry rice and like the peak of his powers had Brent Jones who was a star Ricky watters ball so you have to really trust that guy and you put it you just put in a lot of power in that guy's hands and then obviously you got to pick the right players but then you guys have to develop them talk as much as he wants did you know he's not as boisterous in terms of just e e he's actually pretty understated now in a in a weird who would I'm in flow on a given game on calling plays and I tweeted this out they're probably the rare team it hell you might throw the Saints Infinitely Smarter and when you bring a guy like that to me he's I say this all the time about him he's the most physical tackling corners I've ever seen he sure Dana Stubblefield was an excellent player the best and obviously the harbaugh teams were defined by defense the best forty niners teams always had elite defenses. Yeah I mean I know through legend here in these guys that live around Northern California forever the Ronnie Lots and I get it but I watched the get guys no one cares how much you know the best coaches are great teachers on the field always texting their players always communicating with it's on and it's on like donkey Kong and right now cow Shanahan's kind of flexing his muscles in the forty niners franchise who is his the even Bella checks now call on the defense if you're saying you're the offensive play called so you're spending the vast majority of your time on the offensive side of the for you give them a week to prepare like you could give me or you and they'd have a chance to score points but when you give them a legitimate quarterback and they got some weapons I would probably be why I take that defense over this one those guys were two of the best players I've ever seen play together they were incredible or ball with capper Nick to how Shanahan their best teams in I wasn't I was born in one thousand nine hundred four I don't know the back they were absolutely loaded the events had dion sanders Merton Hanks Tim McDonald Pro Bowlers Bryant Young I think it was a defensive rookie of the agitated world inspired by underwater action films from the eighties and nineties to present a cautionary tale of humanity's refusal to embrace the future the second did he brings just being around those guys you know because anytime you're GonNa win for the first time it helps when you have someone who's been there before ballplayer on this drive what would you call passes I would throw bombs I would throw like skinny posts I would throw just deep breaking routes one of the better DB's in the league he is playing at a super super high level and I I bet he'd tell you physically maybe I'm not what I was when I was twenty three but I'm win are they going to get this done and now they are and the way they're doing it is they are kicking the shit out of people they took the panther but what this forty niners defense is doing right now it's it's all kind of connected and for his greatest Nikko Span and Eric Armstead looks like an all pro and I don't think it can be understated or maybe it's the word would be overstated how impactful he's been one is a player I mean last year he was good but he was coming off the Achilles this year I don't know if he's like P two thousand thirteen fourteen Richard Sherman but he's a pro baller he's one of the one of the better corners this guy's been to multiple super bowls he's going to walk into the hall of fame to be guys were we're headed in the right direction and he was saying that over and over last year until the cows come home if you put a good defense with a good run game you're GonNa Win Games and then Jimmy just keeps getting better and better and then you factor in Kyle's who they're probably being eighteen at the end of the year they made him look like a zero one team that was that's as big of a beatdown as you'll see all season Kyle Shanahan who had been granted as an offensive coordinator was saying the same things we're headed in the right direction but I think for a lot of us on the outside it's like well are they eventually most young coaches want to throw the ball I don't blame him it's one to throw he's kind of old school in that sense I mean now granted he learned from the masters father they will gas the ball he wants to shove the run down your throat until you tap out and say ankle and most young guys include me like give us like a middlekauff GonNa let you I thought we say that four or five years ago and you mature as a human and it's just not as necessary probably talk cause us back it up but the swag Ford's making plays and their linebackers were good their secondary is unreal I mean Richard Sherman is playing at such a high level along offensively they run it right down your throat and the thing that makes kyle special and they kind of has parallels to her by in the sense he lives to run I don't know either they still play the packers still play the saints and you kind of look at the standings packers have one loss to the saints have won loss the niners to call plays he's a magician I feel pretty confident saying the niners are legit are they gonNa win the Super Bowl I don't know are they going to be a top two seat Zi drafting the right players deserve a ton of credit but the niners are not going away okay let's let's dive in watching the ASISI player and they play an ACC schedule in once Florida state fell off the map dabble changed clemson but one of the big reasons he change Clemson is because he got this named Shawn Watson and we all saw and it wasn't just against Duke and North Carolina in Miami who's the all these programs are down it a personality standpoint I think sometimes just watch the guy's going to tell you who he is like Alvin Cook Right now is probably my favorite player in the NFL. I didn't love stuff but I I wasn't super locked in on the ACC from an NFL standpoint and I just remember hearing all these stories off Clemson man produce all these NFL and I was very versed on West Coast football the PAC twelve the mountain west and even fallen like the big twelve then they went to Washington or excuse me they went to La and it was like you guys are decent we're gonNA kick the crap out of you and they did then they went to Washington they played and I think I've been thinking a lot about this last twenty four hours in trying to figure an analogy I don't really have one but present NFL prospect I think over thought that one I I absolutely love the way the guy plays in Shawn Watson who when I first got to the NFL in two thousand the mud bowl and the NFL found a way to win off the bud bowl they came back and they play the Carolina Panthers and they made them look like the player but they never win a damn thing and think about it they always had all this talent and as my Guy Phil savage always told me about Jimbo and Florida state they recruited was in the playoffs against the best in the brightest it was looking Nick Sabin right down the gun barrel and going toe to toe with him in a loss in a year later he comes Washington redskins would've looked on dry field that that's as impressive of games you'll see in Kyle and the mindset and guys like Richard Sherman and but we know that we know the saints are good we know the packers are good because Aaron Rodgers like the the niners are on their little now are they gonNa win those games I don't know in three NB the three seat and be like playing you know the rams in the first round so we don't know where this niner team's going to be seated time I had to adjust on the fly luckily the gym I belong to is also hotel and has has game setup or Jamie has TV setup they had all the aims going Sunday through some stuff in a in a backpack in flew to the gym so I didn't miss much and I didn't miss this Shawn Watson mm-hmm Comparative Michael Jordan and I don't blame him because in this world that we live in in this world I gotta find this video just listen to this back finds a way to beat him walk off touchdown dabbled try to tell us all the kid is Michael Jordan even Jon Gruden yesterday John China they're not going to run the table fourteen and two is probably what it's GonNa take in my opinion to get a first round bye in the NFC there's a chance that you could go thirteen what about the season we're gonNA find out but after watching them after the bye they came after they went on the by and they were three no I hate early buys but nations you know you just yet tip your hat to watch and he was awesome today Don Watson now obviously he through multiple touchdowns and you can't quantify that stuff he made a play yesterday the game winning touchdown he got kicked in the face as he's falling it is what it is like ours is are these guys deal and they came out and they took Freddie Kitchens and they said you don't belong and beat the living crap out of them later Houston Texan game yesterday we got power outages right now in my power went out mid forty niner third quarter and the raiders feet just in his body Iraq while looking down the field gets kicked in the face the slow motion shot of his face he even tweeted he only completed twenty balls the only threw for two hundred yards. You can't quantify what this dude brings to the table you can't quantify it the ball three times in the second half unfortunate very unfortunate at Lop Penalties and Doggone Watson and you watch the game I don't even have this box score up in front of me you know why because it doesn't matter I could care less if you told me the game I watched he threw a couple of picks last night it said the one I bandit he had one eye as he's bleeding from his face any throws a touchdown it was one of the most remarkable second in my opinion and I'm not obviously the numbers are good at Shawn Watson but what I witnessed yesterday the will desire then just the ability you know sometimes in life we just over think things it happens a lot in scouting you know when a Guy Colin always says like just listened the guy's going to tell you who he is the picked a player over him coming up but what an incredible performance I felt like as just a sports fan first and foremost Mike Romo dial fabric which is a full three times softer than cotton we're really redefining goals.

You're GONNA need a quarterback to make plays in the playoffs but now to really be a thirteen and three fourteen and fifteen you need a really diverse team I truly believe hall of fame is just it's a lock like the only thing that will withhold his ability to make their health and I'll get into the team that's Meoni's dot com slash founder okay let's get into the bears and I guess they're my bears they were definitely my bears when they won the division and in a day and age when we've loved quantify everything I I worked in corporate America for a little bit before it came to on gas world technically so corporate America you pick that's how ultimately like the reason Bill Polian is in the hall of fame yes teams really good is because of all the hall now I think we're at the point where you can't even pretend that but you can't pick up the fifth year option that is not an option anymore and I think you have to think about I tweeted in a game where they had a six point lead now we can horrible we want about the missed field goal I disagree with a strategy but I also understand it and as Dion Sanders said last night on. NFL look in the faster you can be reactive and proactive of search for another quarterback searching for an upgrade the fast cut bait and move on because the longer that you hold onto your else and this is going to be the biggest L. Heal hopefully ever take and it's a big out the worship Jio business it'd be like ratings right you're just a fine on how well you do because how well you do then generates the revenue and then ultimately all this stuff you know even what I'm doing talked about this guy who's headed to the hall of fame Houston Texan You have the other guy did they went to the same conference they came out in the same draft you even traded up a spot fourth quarter fumble in your on the goal line you run seven plays and he can't score a touchdown he's not good enough he's not good enough and pick three to to to get this guy in that you're stuck with them but as I've talked about on previous podcast you only make this work if you pretend it's not an issue the play NFL quarterback he's below average he just this you know he can have some moments and he made a nice play with his legs but at the end of the in professional sports at the highest level even these Mitch trubisky's in an elite athlete relative to the rest of us when you put them on an NFL field at that position you have to be able to win by throwing the football and he can't consistently hit layup throws so I think the fact I apologize the fans but we will do everything in our power to upgrade the spot the faster you can begin to just forget this little era embarrassed Sunday I'd cut him now chase Daniel stinks you're not gonna do that you gotTa just play with Mitch the rest of the year but I would come after the season I would just move on quarterback history okay I flipped on the Patriot game this morning because I didn't get to watch it yesterday watching the Raider game in the niner game is a business in the point is to generate revenue right I say it all the time like this unless you work for a charity your number one goal in America if you're running a business is to make money it's easy to consume any game you want in the League on Sunday and my one big takeaway from the browns let's we all know all made an easy trade for Khalil Mack Allen Robinson has drafted Eddie Jackson Keam Hick signed him drafted or signed. Sure you'll never shake this but people will learn to forget you know because your team if you just get top fifteen quarterback life you could treve th undrafted Roquan Smith at done a really really good job except quarterback is a disaster yesterday had to fourth quarter turnovers after these guys and you're not going to be able to until the off-season can just throw up the red flag and just say I wept I missed it sucks is get a Jacoby percent hell even Andy Dalton maybe back in the playoffs next year but if you keep doing enrolling this guy out in pretending that it's all we're up at the end of the first quarter seventeen nothing seventeen nothing I would imagine every game you just another year development it ain't happening there's a reason he was a one year starter in college there was a there's a reason right now that he throws a fourth quarter pick and it has I don't feel quite as confident claiming them anymore good I quarterback I actually liked him coming out of North Carolina but in the quarterback we just talked about the Patriots have had a double digit lead. Let's just say a two touchdown plus league at the end of the first quarter in foxborough since through the defensive Lineman just the fundamentals for the Patriots creating fumbles doing all the little things the Cleveland Browns uh-huh consistently look discombobulated coming off a bye coming off a bye it is just it's everything uh-huh driven general manager like we put it all in the combination you shake it up and you get the Cleveland Browns the game was over at the end of the first quarter the browns coming off Phil App you can watch all the games you can watch TV copies they do a condensed version in thirty seconds or I mean thirty minutes again watching him thirty seconds thirty thirty to thirty five minutes because he's he's not even good enough to be your backup just move on and it's hard the dynamics of having the guy being the former starter now your backup just cut it just most of us thought the browns would be though a lot of talent not much discipline not very consistent in their schematic Seattle seahawks run the ball Russell Wilson go houdini the Cleveland Browns Freddie Kitchen looks that he's going to go down I mean the guy's hall of Famer the Guy will be in the hall of fame if he can stay healthy I say that without hesitation if the Shahnewaj stays healthy he's going knows black and white either mic miss the kicker to kick wind wasn't blowing that much hit the kick but Mr Bisky right now is a major problem and for as good of a team is Ryan turn it over but he might throw a touchdown the Houston Texans just Watkins Hopkins carry you Minnesota Vikings run the ball pass rush and I can only consume so much at one time so you know before it come on Indiana talk about great parties I people always ask how do you watch the Games get the title approach what defines them who are they like what do they do well just bring up most teams in the league just close your eyes and think think Baltimore Ravens what do you think run game Lamar Jackson run around making place harbaugh just tough guy others pick random teams Tampa Bay buccaneers just GonNa throw it deep he two guys the coach and the quarterback have been running this operation there's no chance they're not at minimum maybe one loss I'd be shocked if it's not an undefeated record network make the free kick like it's what you're paid to do make the free-kick it's not a fifty five yards a forty yarder hit it and if you tell the code by the Patriots played a Monday night game now you can say the Monday night game was like a practice against the jets but they still played a Monday night game on the road the Patriots you can't fake it you can't hide it everyone's looking at you and when the browns when they traded for Odell Beckham when you add Odell Beckham bewildered on the sideline how does he consistently look so lost and it always comes back Jim thome soula consistently look lost Freddie Kitchens in an NFL schedule do they can figure out a way to go seven into over their next nine is not realistic because they're gonNA lose like we wouldn't talk about Bill Polian and he went into the hall of fame if he had taken Ryan Leaf overpaid manning just the fact Ryan pace has built an excellent team of being a undisciplined undefined operation is you're GONNA lose like yeah of course you're GONNA lose the Patriots get your ass kicked by the niners or lose the rams say I would be floored if they're able to just rattle off some win streak and keep their playoff hopes alive they're not equipped to do that under Freddie Kitchens to your team everyone's really gonNA look at you they're two and five and so they have nine games left to me to have a legitimate shot to beat the steelers to beat the Ravens again they're not a lock to win any game beside maybe when they play the Miami Dolphins or even Cincinnati Bengals to think that under have you ever been asked to do something that when you're not prepared you look loss to if you could look at yourself when you're doing something and you're in so over your head if you have zero and I mean zero faith in their coach don't ever think they're going to be good because we now have pretty good evidence that the Tom Sioulas all their variables right they have a ton of talent they have a cocky quarterback that is talented may have a coach that clearly probably doesn't know what he's doing they got a crazy s owner they got add seven into I don't care if they played the Miami Dolphins every game the rest of the season they would probably make the playoffs but why would they be locked mar please not not possible and it's a great example of when you get a new sexy team that you think has a lot of talent and you know just playoff level teams just a nature of any football schedule but then when you play the random teams that had you don't have answers when things come up and when you're in a public business like the NFL and their cameras on you at all time game was the browns had no shot it was done obviously all the penalties the baker's the one picked even in the AFC which is not as good as the NFC nine and seven probably not a lot but if you got nine and seven you'd have a chance so in the next nine games they'd have to doc okay let's before we do the middlekauff mailbag I just WanNa hit on just some different stuff I wrote down that what's your telling me the browns could possibly you know if they beat him again but still rattled off a bunch of other winds and go eight and one down the stretch you know he just couldn't get home but he was still really powerful still played hard and he's still one of the Texans better players that's a pretty big blow you know he and the way they are led by Freddie and the players they have now on the bad habits they've now developed it is impossible to go seven and two I so the test you know they're not going to have shot when they play good teams in the NFL. You're just you're gonNA play the Seattle's and then the ballot jacks and the a believer in like longevity like just if you do something for a long time I love Frank Gore I absolutely love wrangler when he was on the niners the Freddie Kitchens the guys that have no business and I mean no business being a head coach are going to be beyond over their head they're going to have no answers I just think my standards for the hall of fame like when I close my eyes and you say hall of fame I think Bell Jack Brady Rogers Seattle like a little unfair schedule they play a lot of good teams they've lost a lot of games but part of their problem now is the way they're run etel especially when you've set on a guy that doesn't have an experience you get this you get a two and five team looking like the ship is about you know Julio Jones like the best of the best in peak. Jj Watt for those thirteen to fifteen or sixteen was intrigue me over the weekend I mentioned this a little earlier but jj watt out for the season you know he he's hasn't been the same in terms of tweeted basically it socks and all that sucks I he might be a little cheesy every once in a while but I have nothing but admiration for when you play Jacksonville Jaguars you're not some locked to beat them when you play the you know the Arizona cardinals they might beat you you just you can lose just didn't have a choice you know you couldn't go to Buffalo and lose that game you went to buffalo and you lost that game your season was over so they kept the thing afloat now they get the it's not possible the divisions over because the Ravens are already five into so they have a they have beat the raven so if they could ever just get to their level any of these games and I think it's a great example of you have to put when you're in a coaching search you have to find the best guy because whenever you I'm pretty sure in the first or second quarter of that game it might have been the first quarter of week one breaks clavicle week one eight work ethic and his toughness and I've gotten a lot of DM's asking me like is he a hall of Famer in for me to be a hall of Famer like it's why I never you're an embarrassment but you get screwed and I know Bruce Arians was pissed off this is insane stat you gotta look at the box score really quick because of what I heard on that game it was not pretty for for you know who Ak mm-hmm and I liked the bills like I think there are tough physical defense but I think I heard something on the radio today or a podcast games later they're foreign four with a six round rookie quarterback that's really really impressive to go four and four with the says good as it gets his peak was elite of the elite so to me he's all Famer Eagles win it was a must win they guy the kicker or the holder or was the kicker and he fumbled and they picked it up and went the other way they blew dead I guess an embarrassment our river on axe but I think as of a couple of weeks ago he was leading the League and pressures he definitely look stiffer to me like not as explosive and not as missing the the kick win the game there are three and five then tonight mid Monday night football game they fired Ken whisenhunt what fire can at his peak was one of my favorite players ever was he ever a top three or four running back in the NFL maybe like once you know and again I'm not trying to be a hater. The Buffalo Bills quarterback would see if I can find the box score important up right now Josh Allen went sixteen to thirty four for one hundred seventy yards the Tampa Bay buccaneers a plate seven games James Woods says twelve interceptions mean he's on pace for high twenties six round rookie quarterback and they're really just a two point play away from being five and three they are that they got a big game this weekend against Houston in in here's who are reeling come into Philly pretty big game but you think Doug

Of course the People's Party get you all rich were do. I'm telling you maybe a little NBA rookie of the year. Talk Doc and much much more. So let's get it going crazy. Football offers the football game on snapback Pam I'm Jack Cetera. From snapback. Back sports on snapchat joining always is my co host. Hebron cable I beat the line. I beat the line I mean. Why don't you tell us about your week? You've been posting all over your Frisbee disc of Burger for dinner your peanut Carlos Good. I'll give it to you. Every meal is like either shockingly good like I'm like wow that shouldn't taste like that did or shockingly bad and I'm just like this I don't think about it. It's essentially what it is. I think I'm GONNA make it. I'M NOT GONNA lie posting my instagram stories. Kind of kept me accountable and has helped me. I would have probably quit for spot. Wasn't it. It was pretty good. I think it was. It was a low. Yeah it was it was low and for the first time ever today after lunch my energy was a little low. I'm fine again. I'm starting to feel lighter. I feel better but it's just it's I'm not going to be a Vegan. I know that but at lease it's GonNa make me a little healthier going forward which I think you know you live in your lower. No that's the exact opposite of what this going to. You're going to stop being Vegan if you make it on Friday here Saturday. Whatever and then you're going to go to town on all your favorite food and Dad's ruin all of your hard work that's correct but now I appreciate how good chicken I and Mozzarella cheese is a sound times? Have you typed in on this week is blank Vegan. Like I would say thirty six. How many times if you come up disappointed finding out that it was Vegan not that often but it's actually for stuff like is mustard vegan or there was one really funny when I looked at it? must've it's been like water. Vegan and I went for drinks went for drinks and I was like what did I drink. So it's been tough but I'm I'M GONNA make it I'll have probably right like a little short thing. Just because a lot of people become curious about it maybe this will be not not me. No you know that the US Jon Gruden have been very excited to know about my next meal more. Because you like to offer you. But don't James Harden for three that I says the game. They beat the clippers. But anyway and don't get me wrong. I'm doing it for the comedic value and watching you suffer but I'm enjoying more Taco salad with ground beef that I had dinner. Yeah like you don't have to go there. anyways anyways straight into the power rankings. I mentioned my energy was love but energy is going to rise because we've kind of been killing at the past two episodes. Don't want to toot our own horns but alto. Let's keep that going. I'll hand you the floor. These teams are getting on my last nerve to the point where I want to get rid of this segment is that because because he had the saints ranked number one. They lost to the Falcons. No that's not. Why but they're still not one anyway? It's just all these teams in the. NFL Stink. I mean they don't stick to like. I think we both agree on a serious note. When's the last time the? NFL has been this wide open. Never it is just a cluster. Fuck of wins and losses. Everybody beats everybody but power rankings. Let's get right into it and I have put about thirteen different teams in random mortars in the past twenty minutes trying to figure out which one so now. I'm just GONNA go which comes to me number five on Monday night football. They took down God the cutest of Cute San Francisco San Francisco Forty niners. I'm going with the Seattle seahawks. They have the MVP. We can discuss that in a little. If you want to know your itching to get baby into this podcast one in five minutes. I'll bring them up for you. They've got the MVP there somehow ate into you. Look at the statistics. How Seattle to like? They're not that good but they are a very impressive win in what was absolutely a crazy game. I think we can both agree but I'm putting them at five booting Sanford now because they've proved to be how cute they were. And Jimmy Garoppolo is. He went from pretty cute in a few hours in that game looking like a scared puppy in the pocket you know what he looked like Jimmy Garoppolo in the pocket and overtime look like like a seventh grader and guys. I don't know if you're listening to this. If you're in seventh grade that was like going I I kiss with a girl but just go for guys because Jimi wouldn't but his legs were shaking into what to do meditation. Honest guys go for it but anyway that that was scripted. What happened in that game? So I'm going Seattle five number four You know what greenback I almost just said Minnesota. But I'M GONNA GO Green Bay. They've pulled out a very tough. Did you think Christian. McCaffrey got it by the way at that time I did I really did. I mean Curtis Samuel within the worst possible spy so I don't think he got it. I'm GONNA agree bed. They've played a tough schedule throughout their still somehow into I think they're cuties come playoff time. They just I feel like that team needs Aaron Rodgers to actually carry them and have unbelievable. Aaron Rodgers S game time after time to continue to carry them. I mean they gave up four hundred yards on Sunday to Carolina but still won the game. You can only depend on the bend. Don't break for so long. They only give up sixteen which is interesting definition of bend. Don't break all these yards all week. Doc I mean all game. It'll come back to bite them so I've got Green Bay for before you move one did you. Do you understand the going for two. Because I think this needs to be cleared up. I know that the nerds upstairs understand. Okay so let me let me just give a quick break down the going for for two and the going for it is normally situational. It's OP. They were by kicking an extra point. Carolina could've made it a fourteen point. Game Right Seventy and seven point game. So they're down fourteen when there's so like the numbers will argue that you should take into account many different factors. Like if you're going for it on four worth or Ponzi and stuff like that but there's nothing that the numbers say that go when you're down fourteen in the fourth quarter and you score touchdown you go for to literally the every time it raises your probability of winning by twenty five percent so the math is that you get all the information of fronts of you. Don't get it you know you're GONNA have go for it to Now with the moving back of the extra point plus take into account the weather in that game extra points were probably even lower probability of going in And then obviously your chances of winning by getting one two point conversion are really high versus. Then you have to go win a coin toss in overtime stop them etc etc so just so people understand the mass as you go to every time down fourteen fourth quarter. The Ravens have done it which I love. I'm curious if we'll see other teams kind of pick pick that up right so what Jack was saying. And it's exactly what I hate is the analytics and to me nerds have ruined. Sports merged that note newer at let me get their nerds. The city of New Orleans have ruined sports New Orleans for replay nerds for analytics analytics. Make it more more exciting. Actually because the extra point extra point is almost boring. Like when you have the game on the line right I I agree in now. Analytics has made teams go for more. Which is actually better than the other sports? In general like baseball basketball analytics think nerds think they ruined sports. Maybe I just say that because I'm not a nerd but light I've got Seattle Five Bay. Four Jack Yeah number three the Baltimore Ravens. I mean good mood that honestly seems l-low thankful because this is the first time the Baltimore. Ravens evens three. Because I literally have nobody else to pick I just don't know at this point. The NFL is just such a cluster of average to above average teams. That I have no idea what to pick obviously had a great win in her home. It's New England and then beat up on since I'M A middle school travel team for the knowing really beats up on them like we did nonetheless. Haven't won a game number. We're to the New England patriots. I'm not I know you guys beat them and you can talk about in your power rankings. Talks about the past. This season are White House right. Though right I mean I was right to predict a Baltimore brought New England. Now you did not you switch and that is something I will get. Gotcha right you sweat because you heard some random stat about. I read twitter for five minutes while I was taking poop. And that's enough to change your prediction. Thank you very grabbing coach. Best of all time quarterback. He's good but we'll call great at this point right. What I've got New England because I'm just camp at against them anytime the number one team in the league? Even though they lost to the Atlanta Falcons scored single digits at home is the saints solely because I think they have the least amount of flaws of any team in the NFL in terms of running production passing production weapons weapons big names. They didn't just lose a big offensive lineman today and Marshon Lattimore to be out but you combine that with potential home field in the in the playoffs. And I think the saints and the team to be so recap Seattle Five Green Bay for Baltimore Three New England to in New Orleans one No that's interesting with the saints at one. I will point out that the saints now are off like they're in third place so they're the by. I think they become so vulnerable when breach travels and plays outside especially in the playoffs. He's just not what he is in in that dome and I think like they're one of the least scary playoff teams on the road at home. It's I do not want to go down to wherever insurers the NFC is a fan of NFC team. I'm sure as hell not afraid of Jimmy Garoppolo. I'm sure as hell not afraid to kirk cousins Dude Jack. Kurt Jack Kirks things but Dalvin like in a playoff game. That's scary Davenport's that defense. Yeah but at the end. It's GONNA come down to the quarterback so I'm not afraid of him I'm really only afraid of Ross. The MVP but they have weaknesses elsewhere and drew brees breeze. But they have the whole team in my opinion. But give me your five. Let's hear let's hear. My five chiefs fell out. I still have them winning the Super Bowl. But they're just not they're just not playing well. Apes favored text me this week at the Ravens are winning the Subaru. I didn't stopped it I probably I don't I don't I will get to the Ravens right at five. I'M GONNA throw Minnesota in there. They're just bawling out like I know. Dallas isn't like crazy crazy good but that's still an impressive wing cousins plant. Amazing Davin is playing next level. People want him in that in VP. Raise every him verse McCaffrey in the MVP. Yeah like it's you know people they get bored because we're GONNA get all of the season but that defense is awesome Zimmer's actually a really good coach. He's just has to deal with cousins. Dozens and cousins is one multiple Primetime Games this year. Like I know we're used to kirk but like maybe it's a new leaf. I'm not saying is but they have to more prime time games coming up. We'll find out so I have them at five The pack at four. Okay Yeah. I'm knocking Sam for him. One last week I'm not going to matter my power rankings. Right like they tell you. Well it's it's. They have have a game manager at quarterback and turn them that. Now he is he absolutely as he can make plays. They had eleven drops But he handed Seattle the game. He really really did he. They had outside of the three touchdowns which came directly out the three terminals for twenty one point Seattle did and then outside of that the three other points Seattle Pun on every single drive except for one. So like. You just can't do that. It's probably a little drastic because that defense is still silly. But I'm going pack and for for my Super Bowl pick from the NFC to make it. I'm still not high on them. But they keep winning games. They have Rogers whatever sick. Every team keeps winning. Game Somehow Saint Saint. That's good teams. Do saints. He's loses what happens true saints drop to three You just can't score nine points. I don't I didn't watch any of that game to be honest so I don't know how like what was wrong with offense Kamara just didn't seem the same do due Michael. Thomas is on pace to break the receiving record for catchers like how are they drew. brees today was vouching for the VP. Drew put the bottle down. I mean yeah. The offense couldn't get going Matt. Ryan was actually moving the ball and you know what I don't know I still have them at one. I don't look in the much into it. I know Atlanta has what one win two is yes. But we'll I told US chess and checkers Sean. Payton lost that game on purpose Dan. We get an extension but it's a division game there are those are always going to be played tough. Spread gets thrown out the window. Unless you're looking at like the bottom of the bottom teams in the NFL which on record wise Atlanta is But on paper we can all agree they have the right there like nowhere near Cincinnati or the jazz. Or I wasn't while I have this I don't know what made me think of it. The passing Because we're talking like Thomas Setting the record. But can you name the top five quarterbacks in passing yards this year without looking up like just start start throwing out names Matt Stafford Note. Philip rivers number one. Philip rivers has the most passing like forty times a game. I didn't realize is that DAX number two James Three. MVP Russ for. And then Rogers Five. But I thought the top they're crazy anyways saints at three a inexcusable loss. But you know the the saints always drop a weird homeless they really do. And it's such a tough place to play number two. The pats eighty-one on going into Philly. We're obviously going to preview that later in the episode Number one is the Ravens for the power and it's not I don't think it's biased. Because power rankings. Were we've been doing on a week by week basis. It's WHO's the best team in the League right now. We've won five in a row. There's like the only other argument would probably be Seattle who we went to them. We beat no one has an answer for Lamar and the thing is it's not that no one will not figure him out. It's just right now. You can't figure him out. He's the best player in the League right now. The defense I mean I I. I'm not even set. I'm I'm genuinely curious. If you want to disagree and I'll have the discussion. It's just right now. Let's get right into the conversation because I truly that. Russell Wilson is is the below there in football right now. Okay well before we get to that. I want you to say why the Ravens wouldn't be one like what because because you have New England over them but we just smack knowing my seventeen we'd beat the seahawks on the road like the saints. Lose the Falcons. The niners looses seahawks by three at home. And we went to Seattle win by double digits so right now Lamar and the Ravens are the best league and I. I am open to hearing a tort but I don't think you have one I don't okay because it's Damn Jack. It's not it's like it's half of it's half of. I can't look into what they've done production-wise right because of the league the way right because it's it's process of elimination a nation. That's what I'm doing. I'm not even saying we're by far the most talented team. I'm actually saying. Look this. We beat New England. Look at this. We beat Seattle. Look at Samphran. They lost and look at the saints. They so what's that. Leave us with the team being looked into the wreck on but if you want to go to the MVP discussion. But yeah. That's why I'm saying. So you're saying Lamar Jackson Best Player in football right now. And I'm saying it's Russell Wilson I don't have the exact stats but something. About how many game winning joining drives top. QBR top interception to touchdown ratio. But this is the one glaring stat that stuck out to me because even though we can both agree rusted in employees best he had a game. Keep game manage. And he won the game he had only have to. I don't know like he did. He let it game winning drive what he had two. Yeah he did. I mean you can't deny that this is why Russell Wilson is the MVP this year. The seahawks have given up twenty four or more points seven seven times how many games we play nine the NFL win percentage in that when a team goes up. Twenty four points is twenty eight percent. I'm absolutely absolutely five and two in those games. I'm absolutely in love that you just pulled out like amazing stats backup your arguments. Like I'm that that was great. Yeah no it is. He's doing so much for his team that he was literally carrying fifty one people on is back. And that's where the math. That's where the math kills you like. There's fifty three on the roster minus one. It's he's not carrying take it back in heavy true but like Russell Wilson's the type of guy that loses Doug Ball when he turns Tyler Lock into glorified number one receiver. Tyler Lockett goes down. He immediately puts Josh Gordon. The office puts the ball right where he has to on third down and gets to huge third down conversions. He's turned decay metcalf. Who said everyone who everyone said coming out of the draft was a one trick? Pony can only run straight into the most productive rookie receiver receiver that there is this year. He Chris. Carson is fumbling the ball left and right. He's doing so much for that team. which inevitably I think it'll be the downfall because he can only do so much but the fact that he is doing that much makes him the MVP and frankly what Lamar's doing great but the ravens are solid throughout the fifty 53-man that I don't think it's as noteworthy whereas like I said if this was the NBA Lamar Jackson would be the MVP but the combination? Everything Russ has done this year with what his team is doing that has him as the MVP in my opinion absolutely he he's the MVP right now He's the best player in football. There was a tweet from you. What Ross through that interception over time it said wait wait? That's y'all's gall's MVP. I mean it is. I mean. It's just a quick turnaround. It's just I I've actually gotten to the point where where I don't want Lombardo and MVP. I feel like we've gotten off track with our goal. Lamar hasn't it's just the media. The Ravens are getting too hyped up. We talked about last episode. We need a home to what doing it. Well he's the baby goat but I mean but it's not even now it's the point where it's just it's the national media like it. I know I started the baby. Go but like they're carrying the baby. Russ that is your point. They should be losing a lot of games or defenses terrible. He wasn't good on Monday night. He did win the game name. Whatever look at it however you want? They're eight and two. They're not good the only argument at seasons and is going to be like remember when Lamar beat Russ in so that is always going to have like a peg up but I agree. Russell them right now give us the. MVP were going to focus on Houston and moving into into what you're doing for the for the snapback families thing. Let me tell you. Let me let him a little something. Some what Jack was doing with this whole talking crap Russell Wilson and immediately saying like your sarcastically texting me. Oh Russell God Ross first off you told me rockets every excuse in the NFL he has he has. He has every excuse to use and his team is eight into this happening to their Jack. Has this personal animosity and jacking deny this. But I've known Jack since we were eight years old and I know my guy he'd be might be afraid to admit it. Jack is starting to hate. Russell Wilson. No No oh I'm not similarly to what I did a few years back with Donovan Mitchell in the NBA. Because this is your son. It's my turn you know what. Let me out because Ben. Simmons was the glorify rookie of the year. But the media started talking about Donovan Mitchell and going into it. I had nothing against Donovan Mitchell but now that he went to get my guy my point guard sorry spider. You're out now that you jack has been doing the same exact thing with Russell Wilson in regards to the MVP race. With Lamar Jackson disagree. Because and here's my counter. What if I literally said since week one it's been consistent? It's that I said. The seahawks are not good. I obviously Russell Wilson's awesome like no one's ever debated that he's been great since since he came late but since week one every week on this podcast even when they were like three or four. No I said they're not that good. I'm not even throwing them in my top five in the power rankings. And this was way before. Lamar was even closer. Look Lamar bought out week. One against the dolphins but thinking he would be in the MVP race halfway through the year was just unrealistic. You you hadn't seen enough and so I've been low. Can we run back the tape from week wanting to against the dolphins play to the cardinals run humpback that tape where you were just going off of the Mark Jackson. Well I had to shut up the haters. Because they're like oh it's the dolphin. Oh but then like Tom Brady. Didn't score fifty nine hundred eighty stinks. Okay I'm Brad Him all well. You know when we'll have to bring them up as after the break but before we break we gotta make make the fam- rich. It's real off our people's parlay and you know we're in week eleven. We didn't start week one but we probably week three or so maybe four or five. We're do I mean if there's a week to be do you have Thanksgiving coming up and we have to buy presents for the FAM- for a little giveaway like we're do that. We we do but hey there are two ways to make money in this parlay. Fam- can either ride it or you can fade the shit out of it because chances are but we. We haven't gone home for like it's just every week. It's my one o'clock we have. We have thanks a lot. Colts the Damn Dolphins. Now that wasn't last league it was it was two weeks ago. We are shaky but I You WanNA start. Yeah I'm GonNa Start with the late night game. We can get a hedge opportunity if we go three for three on the early games. I'm taking under forty points in the battle of the Mitch's that is Mitch Mitch Versus Surfer Mitch coach the bears versus the rams. The rams have just fallen off the grid. I think I saw today. They're like plus four hundred to make the playoffs granted that's because they're in the NFC and division but they're coming off the tough loss from Pittsburgh fly back might be a little jet lagged Both those quarterbacks are absolutely abysmal. So I'm going under forty in the bears rams game and then we're headed to WHO Carolina and I'm going to take Atlanta plus five and a half why I don't really know either Atlanta's riding that wave coming off off a good win another divisional opponent. They're gonNA play hard and I think this win. Though that I mean that loss against Green Bay really took a lot of the heart out of of it for Carolina. They saw big opportunity with New Orleans losing in Atlanta and I just think like their hearts were pulled out in the fashion. It was and it's going to be a little hard to bounce folks back. Plus you're playing a divisional opponent after that Harper game. I think five and a half points to the little too much doesn't I don't Think Carolina can win game when appealable whatever but like the five and a half points Atlanta's getting in that so I got a five and a half and under forty in the Battle of the Mitch's I'm going knowing since he plus ten and a half because I dislike myself We talk a little bit more because yeah so Finley lead. Their new quarterback actually moved. The ball decently against the Ravens. He threw a pick six which kind he was abysmal. No no that's the thing. He moved the ball while it was just just like costly turnovers but I think the I'm a big fan of the raiders. I think they're going to hang around the playoff race. But like but are the raiders really like double digits better than anyone John. I don't like when I see ten and a half line I it's more about like the other teams like to cover ten and a half. The other team can put up up seventeen like this. They have to score twenty points. It's just go math You do realize your betting on a team that wants to lose. Yeah but they still want to keep it close because the kid Finley shrine approve himself. There's IT'S NFL. Players are always going to compete. Look at the dolphins the past two weeks baby doll. If I mean the Dolphins Sam Darnold said the jets can run the table and make the playoffs. Yeah I mean the dolphins are headed understandings right now the tiebreaker. So if we WANNA get dean. Dean actually thinks that they're gonNA make the playoffs. It's kind of scary Jack. I think I can be convinced. It's pretty easily and then other picnic nego foles is back and he's going to be the colts. Yeah Nico Falls my original pick to win the division Asian. I still think they can win it. If they win their five and five if we beat Houston they're six and four and that division just beats up on itself the titans hung around with the win over the chiefs It's an indecision game if they lose obviously they're screwed but I haven't seen I know percent will be back. Will he be fully healthy colts votes. Haven't been too good lately. They've lost to a row I'm going with the JAGS so jags money line under. Oh yes josh. jags money line. Under forty. In the Battle of the Mitch's ultra drank dropping three in a row games in a row in their own building. Yeah Eh raiders he was. You hate the Fam- I mean. The coach should have dropped three in wrote. It was a late field goal in the Joe. FLACCO Broncos elite squad and then Atlanta plus five and a half is your people's pilot. We'll see you on Monday with a load of cash for the snapback Fam- but for now we're just GONNA have to deal with some ad reads because untuckit yet i. The holidays are almost here.

Backlash Blue Wire holidays are coming up. Your Mom GonNa make you shave and start shaving better today. All right cool. Good good work on that. Proud of you I I'm going to take a nap and I'll give you three minutes to tell me why. The Eagles will beat the Patriots on Sunday. Do I have to believe it though. No just just was beat the Patriots on Sunday. It's not necessarily camp. I can't I can't lie on here. I mean a lot about my team but like like the Eagles I duNNo. We're coming off to to Goodwin's when our backs were against the wall coming off a bye I get. The Patriots are as well but listen our buildings hard to the plan. I think our strength fit into their weaknesses really well while their weaknesses are their strengths. Fitna our strengths as well. If that makes sense we can see we saw megaton but continued mouth. But listen we saw it when you guys played the Patriots You can run on this team you can. I think you'll see the pay. The Eagles come out and run the ball thirty times with miles sanders Jordan Jordan Howard. Who have actually been a great duo for us and we all know the more successful yard? Iran worked for Lamar Jackson. The better you are in the past game I understand the Patriots. East back into their defense is very strong but the early you can get that run going the easier it'll be to throw on them. I really do think we come on. And we and we run the ball down their throat whereas we also see glaring issues with how they're protecting Brady this year specifically his blindside and our our defensive line is a bunch of absolute animals who come into the league coming into the year. Were probably one of the top rated defensive line in the league with Fletcher Cox Brandon Graham Derek Barnett. And if we're throwing Derek Barnett and Brennan. I mean Brandon Graham Fletcher Cox on Brady's blindside and we're getting after early than it disrupts. Everything he he wants to do. I do think it's going to be a very good game. I think it's going to be a shootout. I think defense really really think it'll be a shootout but I'm GonNa go twenty eight twenty five eagles so we'll have to update the shootout in. The dictionary is like an averagely high scoring game but the three point game yet forty four and a half shootout is like both teams are third. Sit here and say it's going to be chiefs rams partout now that that was forties. I used that was fifty fifty four fifty one. Call that a shootout. What we call that? We call that a big twelve fun fact on that the last time. There were two quarterbacks entering during week nine or later with passer ratings over ninety that were both aged under twenty six was mahomes Roscoff fifty four fifty on the next time that's ever happened is the baby. Go Versus Sean. But I WANNA talk to you on Can read you one last quote that all over the week that do you think you are. You GonNa win like you're saying you doing into existence like I knew we were beating being the Patriots. They're not that good they are good. Actually I I agree with you. I don't think they're as good as advertised right. Think were not as good as advertised. That's the issue for me. Yes so I think they're not that good I think Brady actually won't be able to explore your corners which really well for you and you can run the rock. I think actually he playing well better but like let's be honest like you play Josh Allen Let me read you. The only thing that is making making me Starter and not pick. The Patriots equals. I read this quote. You assume over it come on now that that's a lot of mental mental scar tissue. From that year we changed a lot. They change a lot totally different circumstances huge game for us big game for them. The better team will win that that was Tom Brady on his rematch. With US and having the Super Bowl from two years ago circled on his calendar yet his absolutely goddamn terrifying terrifying. Yeah I think that I think I saw that I said guys. Let's pack it in get a little rest to get ready for Seattle. I just think that bell check off a loss and a by brady off a loss in a by hearing about how they're not that good that defense coming off the loss the by I you know I'm actually rooting. I'm for you because I need the Patriots lose if the Ravens have any chance of getting a by and even that one seat I just it's like I agree. I think the Patriots are very beatable. I think the blueprints add on how to beat them. I think on the Road Brady. Isn't that good but it just to me. You guys haven't been that good and you haven't been an impressive. This could be the flip right. That's kind of what you're hoping for when you pick the eagles it's like all right. We put we put all the pieces together on Sunday back. We play the best game of the season. Do Come. You're coming off the bye so like I. It's there you have the talent the home team off. The bye is hard to pick against and we're good team at home. I mean we're not this year. This is one of our very few hard games left right. We have them the Patriots this week. Seattle at home next week and then we have like a bunch of we have the giants the Redskins the dolphins and then it comes down to week sixteen against Dallas. Yeah I think that would not my fam- I I have to tease this. We might have lost snapback experience week. Sixteen Dallas at equals probably flex to Sunday night for the NFC. Even though they're flexing you guys out out of Sunday nights which is rough but I think I spun that to it. Wouldn't shock me if you guys beat New England Seattle at home it really would not And then just go on an absolute tear and then like the week sixteen and seventeen this podcast just brutal for everyone's ears but because I actually figured out how we're going to get the buy. Yeah Okay let's not go there yet. But I also wouldn't shock me if you drop both and then we're really pretty much done for the playoffs. So I think intro. That's that's what you're saying. I'm not saying you'll be out but my point is if you drop these two games. What's this say you're going to take care of business against like some pretty crappy teams teams like you guys wouldn't be that good in terms of football team if we drop these to the nine and seven nine seven regardless can easily win this division with Dallas Plays Detroit New England Buffalo Chicago? The Rams us down the some guy. Detroit Buffalo Oh Chicago three names that are really not that scary and I think the cowboys are lock games. No absolutely but also again that at-home philly against Al.. She'll be a win for you guys. They've just owned you guys recently. I know they've all been closed. But yeah which is. That's tough to admit while while we're here for the Thursday pilots Thursday football browns at or sorry steelers. The browns pretty much one will knock. It wouldn't knock Pittsburgh out by any means I disagree because as I've said a lot Pittsburgh schedule is very tough. I'm going to go with the browns and it sucks because I I think Pittsburgh's good and I think the browns could Brown's us but I think they're going to get on a little. They'RE GONNA drive run back in you. Especially I'm going twenty the three to twenty one cleveland. Another come from behind. Actually a Lotta points. Like Pittsburgh's D has been special MINKA Fitzpatrick who else is defensive player of the year. If it's not him you can look at. I mean the rookie of the year and the defensive player of the year. Nick what he's been doing. Stefan Gilmore New England. I think the way mink has been performing especially after the trade I think he has about forty eight interceptions since moving up north. But I'm sorry I cannot pick against my guys. I have a disease a sickness that brings me back to the Cleveland browns. And all the hype around them. So I'm going to go with the Cleveland browns and Incredi- for this Jack. I don't think it's going to be close dominate from start to finish and they just ride this way from last week in a hard-fought win coming back on national television and we finally get to see what we expected. Maybe Korean haunt gets a little bit more involved in the offense sure. Freddie Kitchens will blow a few possessions last week they went out with eight from the Golan. Yeah no it was it was actually recive. Yeah very I don't hate that a call on the blowout because I think it's a short week. Pittsburgh's really hot they could just throw up dud seventeen okay Cleveland. It's that would be a big margin. I actually might be at the biggest Cleveland. Browns Bar snapback experience. I thought it'd be like kind of cool thing. It's like the number. I'M NOT GOING TO CLEVELAND IN NEW YORK. The biggest supporter of poppet. It does. I've seen I mean I have friends. They're barking at the TV. So maybe we'll get a little bit of that on Thursday you know what the best part about that our be. How many random jerseys of quarterbacks you can find yeah but people have duct tape over them with a different name? It's probably all updated may feel. Obgyn you could find if you have some true doll doughnut there. There's definitely them. There's like seven hundred. I I'd get that on On at real underscores sports on snapchat. clock Nice Plug. Thank you Baltimore verse Houston is the other really marquee game of the week I think like. I said it wouldn't shock me. If we lost the ravens are just too hot right now and like. We've Kinda yeah. I don't know our defense has been scoring touchdowns which you can't count on. The offense is obviously been dynamic. Maybe I don't know I think we're GonNa win but I think we you could lose you sound. You sound exactly like I did talking about. I hope we leaves you know what I really. This has nothing. It's you maybe it AH I. Don't think you guys win this game. I I think it's a lot of to Shawn Watson tearing the Lamar Jackson hype And he wants to get his name. MVP Conversation you got the Texans coming off a bye. You is coming off of a win. And all this hyper. You're riding high. Maybe a loss right here is the best thing for for you instead of it being humbling. So don't take it the wrong why I love. I'm actually an agreement. I think bad loss in the bank and it's going to be that type of lawsuit doc. Where you guys wanted it from start to finish in the media and everyone starts to question you come out? Lamar Jackson gets on bleacher. Report Lord snapback Instagram Pas. Crazy play and it's just up and down roller coaster just like every other team has been this year You're not seeing many. What do you guys on a five? I've game win streak right now. You're not seeing many win streaks. Go that long this year the NFL. So I think this is a very cub to Earth. Come to Jesus moment and for the Baltimore Ravens. I think I can already picture it Monday morning. It's like 'cause Ross is sitting on the by after huge win on Monday night. And like Lamar. It just doesn't play well. And all the Lamar haters out of their closet like Shawn Watson Dominates Russell. Will I mean Lamar Jackson this week and kills them. Yeah he's more might drop out of the conversation for good now not for good but not for good but I think he drops behind. Russ and to Sean in that case but but then there's also the possibility we just blow them out because we can't be stopped and we're the best team in the league. I think this is the week you really find out. Yeah I mean this is you got to do it against the the best teams and we could be looking. This could be a first round match up. If you have the three verse. Now they would win the division most likely except I think the jags eggs when it by if they're the they're the five seater or the four seed who knows real quick Let's just run through zero and some pick them spots because a lot of close games Dallas at Detroit who got if match for plays Detroit. Okay I I think I'm off Detroit. I think Dallas is somewhat real. I'm GonNa Douse indie verse Jacksonville. You know I have the jags. Who Do you have in Indy Do we know if pine or not he's expected apply okay Denver at Minnesota Minnesota Rolls Jets verse Washington Redskins Game of the week appointment television and Lessen Sam Darnold told me they can run the table. Who Am I to disagree with him? Yeah I don't quarterback I north field shows what what kind of playoff team the jets are. Okay this actually lets the row this because you mentioned jets money line for the guy if you've listened this far. We're going to go five team or this week because you know the five teamer with the plus money line is our thing were throwing the jets in. Because we're do and I think the five team we've hit in the past is what we need the jets like I get it. They're not that good. The redskins are horrible. Oh haskins is absolutely garbage right now. Why are they favorites normally? It's a line where I'd be like. Oh Vegas knows no. We're taking advantage. I think the line is exactly showing that Vegas has no idea about this game and Vegas doesn't give a shit about this game. They just get a Senate as a pickup. Aw Hey if the public wants to profit off this go have some fun. Want nothing to do with the New York jets at the Washington redskins. No we do. Ah Yes we want. No we want all of it. Jets are my lack of the of the season. Plus what are they plus one. Oh five on the money line plus one and a half of you think they lose by one but just take them straight. How do how do we pick up the microphone record on Sunday? If we go four for four of the original original pets well hopefully like after the forty minute mark of US rambling. People checked out like we're at forty five to forty one cutoff. The Charlie Atlanta at Carolina. You like Atlanta to covered. You'd like them to potentially win out right. Yeah I I liked Carolina Carolina Buffalo Miami. Should we do it. Fins up fends off for the kid buffalo's Yanks codeine also shadow goes. He's a big list of all saints at the box. Is there a chance. FAMOUS JAMUS GETS catches. Dob I I actually could say it Saints Nike Saints Saints Cardinals Niners Cardinals give the niners of Nice tests. niners off the win or off. The loss rather niners win Kobe closer than I think. I think they're going to beat them. Pretty good yeah philly versus versus New England You Pick New England. My what are sorry. Sorry you picked Philly I I hate to say it but and I mean it's not about it no I don't I actually need Philly to win so and say over the the baby I gotta go knowing. I'll be rooting for Philly. I think this is like A. Hey where the Patriots remember us. We have Tom Brady Bill Bell Jack in the top rated defense in the league but if he's been garbage also the if the eagles with Oh shit there no one can really. We shouldn't muscle true. Okay yeah money will be fun for sure. CINCY Oakland since he had Oakland. I'm going Oakland. Think it's closer than it should be Mitch Moore Surfer Mitch. Obviously we'll finish in a tie tie that but if I had to pay surfer's GONNA take this one cow. Gothi Cala Bunga an Monday night. We will preview yes in Mexico we will open. Open the pod with some Nice. I will be non Vegan by then. I'm going to have a fricking state case of dea extra cheese extra steak before we record that podcast. We'll pick that game at the bathroom halfway through the year. We'll pick that game Monday. That is all from episode. Forty five snapback sports POD A. We're going to get a guest on here soon and it's GonNa be a good one I don't know who if someone has a connect like hook up the FEM Out maybe that's what we need. We need another your guests like true. We've been working. There's some things in the pipeline. We need you guys to stay with us. I mean I know listening to Jack for this amount of time on a biweekly. It'd be I don't know slicing week can get a little bit old but but listen all I can tell you is. We've got some good stuff coming the better we do the better. You guys do the more we have you out this people both spot come on. We gotta get that mentality. Yeah well we're going to need a new coat if Baltimore wins by double digits. And the egos he goes. Yeah pulling out like I will be searching for new closeness saw baby goat on three one two three baby. Go uh-huh

"It's the heart of fantasy football draft season and the fantasy football weekly podcast is here to make sure you dominate your draft so thoroughly you leave your opponents reconsidering considering several their life choices particularly playing fantasy football against you fantasy football weekly as the world's longest running fantasy sports show and it's now the podcast that crushes does your league with deep data dives and unique insights every weekend you can find fantasy football weekly on apple podcasts are on the iheartradio. APP or wherever you listen to podcasts in and what is going on everybody it's about eleven forty five and night which means late just got home from the city. Eddie had to do something for ABC after the Raider Game here and I'm pretty fired up. I recorded a lot of the podcast before the game tonight it but I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA hit on my big. Take away from the saints. Texans obviously the Raider game. I mean what a what a performance by the quarterback he he was. Derek Carr was awesome. We're going to dive in. I mean what a weekend it was just the paths acquiring Antonio Brown. Just this Bell Jack being ballot check. Obviously their performance on Sunday night was wo but a dive into three teams. I thought that really jumped out. I mean I think the paths are the defending champs have been one six and you know they're the best but I think the chiefs the Eagles and the cowboys could all throw throw their hat in the ring. I really do and something on each team why they have a chance then. I'M A dive into the Cleveland browns and that was an abomination that was an embarrassment but we shouldn't be shocked and I'm GonNa tell you why and then I'm GonNa jump around a little bit. A couple of college games couple things jumped out to me on Sunday just kind of some quick hitters and then as always middlekauff mailbag instagram wide open at John. MIDDLEKAUFF is my instagram slide up in those. DM's and I'll answer your questions right here on the podcast same as my twitter handle easiest way to you get a hold of me again d. m. e. asked me any football question you want. I'm a store behind to and I'll and I'll get to it but let's start with Monday night football the Monday night doubleheader listen I'm. I'm a West Coast Guy so I'm a sucker for the night game but the early game is typically the better matchup definitely on paper. Ver- tonight's match up was pretty bad ass. I mean you've got drew brees to Shawn Watson Sean. Payton say what you want about Bill O'Brien Bill Brian's not agree. GM He's pretty good coach. I mean they should have won the game and my big issue just in any game or just in any situation in life is when you go super super aggressive like they get the ball back there down twenty one twenty seven. They hit two massive shots because you have no choice. You have to throw a haymaker right. You got at field. Goal doesn't do shit for you. You gotTA drive the entire field to Shawn Watson Boom Hopkins Boom Kenny stills touchdown. He misses the talks point. Whatever I was in a situation where I couldn't I didn't really see the replay questionable. Call twitter freaked out whatever football's weird they ended up hitting it the second time under no circumstances when you just had to and Bill O'Brien get super aggressive can't he let Romeo Cornell go in a pre event situation. How many times have we seen prevent situations against elite quarterbacks. Turn out poorly why listen I'm not claiming to be ballot. Check here or George Siefert or Vic Fangio Vic. Fangio might not be great name. Drop tonight but you have to be aggressive. Send pressure make him make a quick decision when he gets to sit back there and you're dropping eight and he gets the look and not only the guys drop at eight thirty yards off and he just gets go bing bing and getting ads the opportunity for under sixty yard field goal. That's on you. I don't understand how that consistently happens. In football. It drives me bananas. At least Shawn Watson had to just make incredible place sometimes times hopkins argue with the best receiver in the League Shawn Watson. One of the best quarterbacks in the league. Sometimes like Mickey Mantle Hits a home run right sometimes steph curry just the three in your face sometime Shawn Watson. He's he's done a walk off against Alabama tonight. He was working miracles down the stretch. You just use tip your hat. You know not ideal defense guys just made some incredible place and then you get the ball back and you just make them run just like pretty basic place with no pressure. I got multiple tax from people in the NFL like what's Romeo doing talk. How does that happen if I'M GONNA lose in that situation. I'm going to be aggressive. I am not going to have my guys because the moment you play prevent the coverages so soft last time I checked drew breeze historically is the most accurate quarterback in the history of the NFL depending on a metric hammer steve young but modern day most accurate quarterback in the NFL like he's probably going to beaches Egypt and at least give his team a chance and they lost like I'm sorry Bill Brian. I think a good coach bad. GM good coach. He's not the defensive coordinator but to me that is on him. Were you get on the headset and you go Romeo. Let's bring some heat so if worse case scenario lose that way you can wear it like can. Can you imagine wearing the loss. I haven't seen post game. Press conferences really any quotes because I I just started walking into the Ranger Bronco game right after but that's unacceptable after bill and I you know you either coaching or allow it to happen when you're the head man and even if you're not he's the offense. Coordinator has nothing to do with the defense. You still can tell the guy. Hey let's blitzer. Let's be aggressive. That would be a no brainer. He didn't do it in a cost them the game and the Texans who are going to be a good team. They have a superstar quarterback. They have Stupor Star Wide Receiver. They're good team. They're going to win a lot of games but tonight's game on the road road when you're a seven point underdog against you know what on paper looks like one of the better teams in the league. The saints are good are. They Eagles Dallas Kansas the city obviously not New England now I. I don't think so to me. They're in that kind of second tier again. Good playoff level team. You got to win that game and you. You just blew an opportunity all because you were kind of just scared to be aggressive on two major snaps can't happen and then let's go to the the Monday night night night night night game. I don't know how I can't even imagine the equivalent on the West Coast if a Kipah hip a football game started at ten fifteen at night an NFL game. I'd be so hard when I lived in. Philly always so difficult to watch sporting events. I I like going to bed early tonight. Is this an outlier night for me. It's way past my bedtime but the game was sweet and from an install level I remember I was at the last game candlestick ever and candlestick where the forty niners played was an absolute dump but you know once you got in there and the team was good. It was just all about football and I've been Jerry's palace. I've been the most a lot of sweet stadiums and don't get me wrong. They're cool but there's something about just being in a stadium for a football game this all football and the the coliseums even a bigger dump than candlestick and that place was Rockin Rockin. There was an edge to it there were chance I don't think you'd get this any other place in the NFL of Fu Abe and them saying it and it just echoing throughout the broadcast and the guy who deserves the most credit because gruden. I'll talk about later. It was crazy never should acquired. Ab maybe in the first place but the quarterbacks taken a lot of heat and I I've known Darach since I was a fresno state and he was a senior in high school. I've been watching in Placencia licensed senior high school. His talent is immense. His arm strength is elite now. He struggled these last couple years now he was coming off in two thousand sixteen the first time the raiders made the playoffs in fifteen years and he was having an MVP level season until his leg broke and hasn't been the same the last couple of years and whether Antonio Brown the the situation woke him up. I don't know but he's just too talented to play like he has the last couple of years now. Is He going to go twenty two for twenty six ex- in just dominate most games no but tonight is the guy I want to continue to see because he was a playmaker and he was awesome awesome and I gotta give credit to the two tackles who you would say on paper. Bradley Chubb Von Miller is one of the better pass rushing duos in the NFL. I mean you got one von. Miller head of the hall of fame in Bradley Chubb looks like a Guy that might be the next Khalil Mack and Trent Brown who von Miller a couple years years ago in a joint practice against forty niners called the best right tackle in football. He's not line. He might be the best right tackle in football him Mitchell Schwartz through a little bit different players but he's a he's a dominant player in Colt Miller who I know this I took. I dumped on all last year because he was bad dominated. I didn't notice Bradley Chubb at all so when Derek Carr is protected as we saw back on his two thousand sixteen playoff season he can dominate and he can be a top ten quarterback. I know this I I had to to highly paid quarterbacks in my backyard. Derek makes twenty five million. Jimmy Garoppolo place makes twenty seven million and Tara was on a completely different level in Jimmy like Jimmy. I don't think made one play that quite look like Derek and this is easily. The Best Game Derek's played in a long time a big elephant in the room for Derek to is. He's been terrible on Primetime Games. Remember a couple years ago that Washington Sunday night football one of the worst games we've ever seen employ why last year Monday night football against the rams three picks just horrendous last year Thursday night football against the forty niners Nick mullins kicks his ass tonight. It was different human it. It was like he threw it back to Fresno state. That was high level stuff. Give gruden credit. He had a plan. They attacked Fangio in the kick their ass and again from just a nostalgic football perspective. There's some Jerry's palaces cool Lincoln phillies awesome. I mean there are stadiums great but there is something special and there will always something special about candlestick just an old crappy stadium and the Coliseum is even worse if if you've never been there you're not missing much but on a good football game at night. It's just very pure. If it's the best way I can describe it. It's very pure. There's an edge to the crowd. There's a massive chip on their shoulder and it just a special place to watch football game. People four around these parts called me a raider hater because I'm critical of a lot of things they do but I'll promise you this some of the coolest games I've been to have been good games at the coliseum because for all the fluff and the Wi fi and you know getting you get a Ano- Levi stadium you get every type of wine and get chicken curry and Sushi. They just got shitty. Hotdogs seven dollar bud lights a bunch of dudes and shoulder pads and painted up faces. You will not experience experienced this anywhere else in the NFL and I've been to the majority of NFL stadiums. I promise you it was cool to see the raiders for all the crap they've taken and they deserved it and I'm GonNa get into it when we talk about. Ab and the Patriots like they created this but I I always defend Eric Doc by saying this most players especially good players have never experienced anything like this folks in of the raiders and would Derek's overcome in front of this order now. He's been highly compensated fort for sure. I'm not trying to paint him as a victim at all but just in terms of football football wise. He's seen some crazy stuff. I mean last year clue. Max Best Friend on team traded week before the season Antonio Brown. I don't know if their friends or or not but clearly probably not but he was his most important player on the Tina's guy who's GonNa throw to and Derek came out with an edge in him and flacco a plan to different sports and on the flip side. I mean flacco done. I mean absolutely shot. He can't move. I think the biggest thing in two thousand nineteen more than ever. Are you have to have some athletic ability quarterback now luckily most of the quarterbacks that are coming into the NFL think about a lot of the recent guys is just the last five or six years from Shawn Watson Mahomes to Derrick to Jimmy like a lot of these guys can run to even trubisky to Sam Darnold Josh Allen even Baker Mayfield is not just a statute these Eli manning's these Joe FLACCO. 's I think they are thing of the past they are dinosaurs. You know even watch him. Philip rivers the other day and I love Philip Rivers. I mean I love delivers I do. I'm Philibert Eber respond but just watching the way he moves. You're like God. You just don't see this that often. I mean obviously Tom Cam move. Luckily as offensive line coach the greatest offensive line coach ever. You never has to move so it's not really fair. He just kind of moves within like a little too yard radius but it's you watch the flack goes the allies and I just it's over man like these guys. I don't even think college is going to produce any of like the closest thing we've seen as Josh Rosen these last couple of years he moves a lot better than those guys do so the Broncos might just stink and if those pass rushers don't get any pressure. I don't see how they're going to win many games. I really don't so from Romeo. Cornell wasn't out when the Games on the line to to car you know really kind of flexing his muscles and having one of his Ya I don't know I mean he's probably had bigger games just more important games later in the season in two thousand sixteen but this has to be one of the better games he's ever played especially especially when you factor in that it was Monday night football and when I say the entire country I imagine many people in the east coast went to bed us on the west coast. We're definitely watching and he he he showed out pretty well and this makes the chiefs. I don't think they'd be the chiefs next week but maybe the game will be. Kinda interesting.

Let's get into the Patriots retreats and both angles of their weekend start with Antonio Brown and then we will go into their performance on Sunday night with Antonio Brown. I say it all the time and I think anyone listening to. This knows this. The powerful prey on the weak the way just society. Heidi in the world has operated from the beginning of the time right. It works that way with animals like when a lion in Africa wants to eat it does not chase the fastest gazelle. It usually goes after the one this lending taken down water buffaloes. They usually go after the young right. They go after the easy one because they want a meal. They're not looking to get a horn to the face no different big business. What does business often do they steal ideas from little or businesses that they're not afraid. They're going to be able to take them to court because they don't have the money or they just offer a low amount of money in their mind which to a smaller business sometimes feels like a lot and they just by people out and they stay on top. Actually they grow bigger the Patriots and Bella check. It is one million percent it not their fault that the Oakland raiders the losing his team right there with the browns of the Internet era and I think it's safe to say the browns right up there too and after this weekend you hell they might be neck and neck. It's been a joke well last year when they finally did something it felt like it had a plan an even though I thought it was a stupid plan the Governor Khalil Mack in Amari Cooper and it was to rebuild well. A rebuilding team doesn't trade for one of the biggest divas we've ever seen and is because Jon Gruden has no patients and it was destined to fail from the jump. I no one believed he was gonNA work in Oakland except Jon. GRUDEN was the lone per in Raider fans. Of course it didn't work now. Did we think was going to get this crazy no but it got crazy and like limping. Gazelle Bell checks and they're hungry any swoops in did something shady happened probably but guess what shady things happen guess what would not have been possible like. Bella check can't just go NAB AB OUT SEAN Jeffrey from the from the Eagles. He can't just go get saquon Barkley from the giants. He can't just Land Amari Cooper from the cowboys. That's it's just not possible. It's not his fault that this human became available. Only the raiders were dumb enough to trade and pay the guy and then and Tonio Brown. Did he self sabotage this do. I think there's some conspiracy theory. I don't know how four I'd go with the conspiracy theory but yeah some shady probably happened. Did he forced his way out of Oakland and did he try to do this. He tried to do it the whole time. No did the last week get really weird. One hundred percent could Bella check behind. The scenes have been calling them say do this. Yes we want you sure. Do I blame him. No I blame the raiders they acquired this human. They kept making excuses for this human dictator who colleague of mine at the athletic wrote that all during during HBO hard knocks Antonio Brown had been missing practices actresses left and right in the spring. Just none of us knew about it. I heard that and I know some people on the staff hadn't heard about it but it was going on because the helmet issue was happening happening in the spring we'll Jin training camp after he burns his feet in after practice one day and then bounces and the helmet gate got out of control he just disappear and the guy wasn't wasn't even around. I take the coach the other day like how do you think the players think God. They barely even know the guy well he had the he had a camera crew following him around everywhere yet he he dictated their footage like he wasn't charged so these teammates like this is a joke now are is there anyone on the team side like Rodney Hudson in maybe like Trent Brown mound should be offended and they probably weren't but the whole thing was an embarrassment. This never would happen on most teams. One because most teams weren't interested in Antonio Brown. He jumped the shark with the steelers. I know one was touching them except crazy man gruden so of course Belgium is going to come in and I've seen some people tweet like all the raiders are taking all the heat knowing gives the Patriots any crap Orlando him of course not they have six championships. They've been eighth straight. AFC Championships they look like currently the best team in the League and the hell wouldn't even me crazy if they went sixteen. No gets do crazy stuff. Why because they've done this before held. They did this to the raiders. I read a quote today back. When Randy Moss got traded traded he was on the phone with Scott Yuli and they were kind of haggling over the compensation with the raiders. I always said we'll just get it done. Get me out of here like I'm sorry the raiders resume resume is players. Go there to fail and the resume of the Patriots players. Go there to kick ass and take names and if you don't buy tickets gets rid of you so is it going to work in New England. I don't know I would probably know but maybe Antonio just went crazy to get out of Oakland. So is he going to listen to. Belgium doesn't have choice because unlike groom they will just kiss his ass and do anything to keep them on the team despite when he's just threatening to beat up as general manager if one even close to something like that happens happens. You don't Bell Jack We'll do. He wouldn't even tell you called. RUSSA's cut check the waiver wire. He's done packers shit and go home. That's what we'll do because the nine million dollar signing bonus the pats who have an unlimited amount of money means nothing to them. It means nothing so I got news for you if it doesn't work out New England as we saw last night it won't even in matter if it does watch out they will be unstoppable. 'cause I got a text last night from a buddy mid Patriot game and he's like our quarterback relative to Brady is like a different world and it's more of a complementary Brady like Brady right. Now is the perfect player he is just he is a walking talking goat slash legend who just showed up week want at forty two years old and operated at a supreme MVP level. We'll even break a sweat after the game so I WANNA Collins Producers Greg tweeted out. He looks twenty seven. I mean he looks he does not look forty three. I'm about to thirty five. He looks way younger than me. My mom got me the TB twelve book. It's actually crossed my mind a couple times this last couple of weeks. She bought me the book last year for Christmas. I mean I just put it on on my coffee table. I read it because I it works. I mean just has helped just how good he looks. I'm not going to be the goat football player but I'll at least maybe my I skin will shine and I'll be skinnier because he just put on a clinic belch putting on a clinic. has there ever been a team in sports history this owned more teams in the NFL all they own the jets. They own the bills. They definitely own the Houston. Texans they own the colts and Bella check and Brady could be part owners of the steelers. It's unlike anything we've ever seen. I'm the chargers. No one even gives them like I do think that Andy can give them a game this year just because they could score with them and mahomes and that offenses that special if they're fully healthy but that would be the only team that you would go really has a chance then maybe some of the NFC teams but the pats were just in a different world. They're operating on a completely different level and this notion that like he did some shady. Maybe did but there's a reason that they are. They're held to the the same standard as I think of the most successful person in America Warren Buffett Jeff Bezos. I'm telling you when you just have conversations with people. The Patriots talked about in those veins like who are the raiders talked about on that level. I'm serious like the homeless I mean literally. They have hadn't had home home for one for years so the Patriots who yes signed a crazy man just put on arguably given how much hype was in that game for the steelers. There's one of the more impressive performances of the weekend so there's a reason ballot check. It's the benefit out. There's a reason Brady says that's how he come live with me. They're just operating on a completely a different level and yet did they take advantage of the raiders misfortune of course they did but the only reason the raiders had misfortune because they got in bed with this guy that they had no business even associating associating themselves with they got over their skis for those of you that ski have you ever like the first couple of times instead of going down like the whole the easy slopes like the blue gone down a double black Diamond Mike Oh my God well for any skiers out there. It was basically like they just went down a double black diamond and they had never ever skied before in their life and Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock were like Oh my God we are in trouble we are in major trouble and they tumble down the hill and and when they landed up the Hill Brady and Belle Jack were standing there right there to pick them up and take them and that's what happened. Are you still using bid wireless in two thousand nineteen team paying for all those hidden fees and flayed prices and the expensive retail stores because they know you'll pay.

Cut Your wireless build. A fifteen bucks a month at MIT MOBILE DOT com slash J M okay. Let's dive into some offense of football and I say this all the time like the thing that I don't miss about. Scouting is watching the bad players and especially when you're young scout. You spend more time watching the crappy players than you do. The good ones like I got news for you not all. NFL team or NFL players are created equal. Will I really and I still do to this day. I like talking about the stars and it's why media career like I was made for the media. I'm not really into the nuts and bolts about your backup backup special teams. I don't care I if you WANNA watch overachievers go to high school game. I watch the NFL to watch the best of the best twice when I watched like I like watching watching Lsu Texas. I like watching Alabama play Lsu. I like watching Clemson play Ohio State Games. I want to watch. I like watching Kansas City. I like watching Chicago's does defense. Philly Dallas and one thing is clear in the NFL is that the game has completely changed because of the rules it is so so much easier to throw now and aggressive coaches on offense are really thriving and the guy that set the standard for the last twenty years gotree. He's been ahead of of his time. If you think about it his time in Philly with a success Donovan mcnabb was a very very talented player. Buddy was kind of flawed you you know and then Alex who is probably one of the more underrated players in NFL history. You ask anyone that was around him. They swear by him. He's a phenomenal person and you could win with as long as your team was good one with them. Go to read one with them. You'RE NOT GONNA win Super Bowl with them. Beacon Win with them but Patrick Mahomes is basically like the smarter version of Farve now. Is he going to win a superbowl at four yet to be determined but I think we'd all go yeah. I'd bet on it. I'm pretty confident I'm very confident the next five or six here's the Kansas City chiefs under Andy Reid Patrick Mahomes when suitable. I could write that thing in stone. That's going to happen as long as Patrick. mahomes home stays healthy in that part of it on him to play smarter and that's where. I think the far of comparison comes in a little bit. He's a little bit crazy. You know he's King of doing stupid things no. Oh quarterback does this more in the NFL right now. He'll like slide head first. Take a shot and it was like Patrick. What are you doing and then he gets up and he looks at the sideline sideline at the coaches and he smiles. He's like my bad. He did it yesterday when he did a no look pass to a wide open. Kelsey and he looks at the sideline and he looks at Kelsey and he smiles. AL's like Patrick like can't hate him. He's like a puppy dog. I can't really get mad at him for that and he's so good. It doesn't matter but what Andy is doing now with with the most talented quarterback. He's had his head coach because Donovan was really talented but he was never. This good vick was really talented but he was really flawed. He couldn't Korea defense. Alex was really really smart but he was physically limited. This guy's got it. All I mean has it all and they have so so many damn weapons. It's just mind numbing in Andy. WHO's had a lot of weapons before I mean when I got to Philly Sean and Leshan and Jerry macklin Oakland. That was a really good young core with VIC. Remember that first year light in the world on fire this cruise better because tyrod kills dominant player and luckily he's not seriously injured. Kelsey is probably the most dynamic tie in in the NFL Sammy Watkins yesterday look like Randy Moss meets. I don't know Antonio Tonio Brown. It's just incredible and if you talk to the guys in Kansas City they'll be like and they were talking about this on the broadcast. He's a great guy. He's clearly very talented. He's got to stay healthy well well. He doesn't need to do that every day and I think he had nine for almost two hundred and three touchdowns they just need him to stay healthy and be he can be a number one wide receiver when when tyrod kills out then they got all all these other wide receivers. Damian Williams looks good shady is going to be fine. Their offensive line's good. They're good like barely there the one team that you take away yesterday in the AFC. They're the the one team and again. I'm recording this before the Monday night games maybe the Texans but probably not because the Patriots own the Texans go yeah they could give the Patriots game but they it could beat the Patriots in the AFC championship game. Hell they were offsides away from beating them but then there's two other teams that really jumped out to me and I have experience with both these two and I'll start with Doug and the Eagles and Carson Wentz one. I I was around Doug every day when I worked in the odds for two straight years. He is kind of like an andy in terms terms of he's a very very hard worker. I mean they're super early. An absolute grinder. I just was never around him from a scheme standpoint like I couldn't tell he wasn't calling the place. One things well established. Now in two years in a game was three years. I guess three years in a game as a head coach. He is an elite play collar. It is something that just innately comes with them like he's got it. He's a longtime backup quarterback what he's got it. He can do it. He took good notes working for Andy Reid and plan for all the good coaches that he did like. He's a special play caller then he's associated with. I wrote this down and I. I don't know if this is perfect. Carson wentz Shaquille O'Neal of quarterbacks backs like his upside when he's on your like I've never seen anything quite like this mahomes a little bit like that but mahomes isn't six five to forty and can just toss defensive linemen off mahomes a little bit more farther up slayer. Carson Wentz is physically looks like no human. We've really seen because he's much faster rothlisberger. He's a more natural throw even younger Rothlisburger Rob's version Great Hall of fame player but Mahomes like where where is his ceiling. It's like Kobe Bryant said a couple of weeks ago about shack like if he would've worked hard he could have won twelve championships. That's why does he carson Wentz who at halftime yesterday Saturday right before half when they scored the touchdown to make it I think seventeen to seven they were down twenty seven halftime the flip the switch in him and Doug came out guns blazing it. I was like God their ceiling. Those two guys together is sky high. I mean it's it's as high as Andy Mahomes and it's because Carson Wentz is just such a freak talent. He is so damn good and they have so much alshon baller Deshaun. I get chip. Kelly thought he was in a gang. Well turns out chip. Kelly doesn't know what he's doing into. Sean still can run really fast score. Touchdown Turns Out Shady actually isn't that bad. It's like chip. Kelly just ruined roster that it turns doubt that everyone was right on the other side chip. Kelly not chip Kelly but this team with Philly is just really good and their quarterback has a chance on anytime you step on the field to not the best player on that field to be clear best player in the League and then the third guy before I worked in the NFL I worked at Fresno State and for two years we boise was the team in the league run by Chris Peterson. Their quarterback was a young player that year was richer freshman sophomore named Kellen Moore and to this day the best players I've ever seen in my life were Reggie. Bush live and Kellen Moore life now. Reggie Bush wasn't elite. NFL Prospect Prospect Kellen Moore was not an elite prospect but just as a college player. I'm just talking college player. He was the most dominant college player had ever seen he dominated aid and I'm born and raised in Davis. My Dad was big into cap. Uc Davis Athletics so I know a lot of people involved with the program. Chris Peterson is a Davis Guy. A lot of the boys guys dame's thanks guys. These guys are elite intellects Sean McDermott. I remember when I first got to Philly any new us from Fresno state. He used to ask me. He was defensive coordinator that first year who happens to be head coach now on a pretty good one again. I've been around December head coaches. I worked in a League three years. Nagy McDermott Doug Andy Todd Bowles like I seen the way these guys operate. He used to go what is in the water at Boise and I I don't know but they got something and I'm telling you everyone a boise. We'll tell you that Kellen Moore one. He was destined to be a coach his dad's. That's a long time coach. His brother who I just got a text from my friends in Fresno. My family lives there. Kirby more his brother and played wide receiver Ed Boise State is now the wide wide receiver coach at Fresno State. Someone just text me. He typically works from six. Am To twelve at night so they're naturally grinders because they come from a coaching family and I'm telling you Chris Peterson. We'll tell you and I used to have off the record because I was a scout. Kellen Moore was the smartest player he's ever been around. The doodle was genius and then when you factor and he has the coaching background because of the family he was destined for this moment. I don't think it's crazy to say. I'm not trying to overreact to One Dallas game. I would've told you ten years ago because I never thought he was going to plan the NFL. I thought the guy was it's. GonNa be a next coach of Boise. He'd be a coach. The Sky was the limit for this kid and this was just as a player because I knew his background as I think Brian Horsens it might have been Justin Wilcox whoever it was came back to Chris Peterson when when they recruited Callan more and he looked at Chris Peterson Chris Peterson want him because he's like five eleven and he doesn't have a great arm and just I think it was just a Wilcox and Justin Wilcox told him if if this kid doesn't work out you can fire me or not let me recruit anymore. I mean made a bold statement and he's probably the best player in the history of Boise not not. NFL Player I'm just saying individual visual player and the guy's brilliant mind and you just watch the Dallas Cowboys and they've never looked like philly with doug or clearly andy with with Mahomes or the Patriots with mcdaniels or even you know in the heyday like Todd Haley in Rothlisberger and all those guys you watch him yesterday and I watched the game late late last night while my ipad condensed version and it was a clinic I mean I people motion and left and right guys wide open Amari Cooper looking like a star. Randall cobb look like star decling a store like I knew mahomes. Andy were good. I didn't need yesterday to find that out. I knew Carson has MVP talent. I didn't need yesterday to find that out. I've seen doug go toe to toe with Bell Jack. In beat him. We know he's a league coach. I knew in my gut. Kellen Moore was a good coach. I haven't seen it and I had no proof but I would bet on them and I would bet the form right now. I don't have a farm even though my dad used to be a farmer the Kellen Moore a superstar star up and comer and this isn't just fluff reasons he bias. It's because this guy was bred for this again. These boys guys who these Boise Guys Chris Patrons not out Washington Justin Wilcox now account their intellects and they will tell you this guy is the smartest football player and just mind they'd ever been around as a player at nineteen twenty twenty one years old. He's he's on a different level. I would know that if I hadn't met at Fresno state and we hadn't played them and I have all these mutual friends and acquaintances that no all my bender Boo Boise program got to meet Chris Peterson several times. This isn't a fluke this guy like Andy. I'm sure Doug and even Nagy will tell you they worked for it you know. I don't think any of them grew up with parents that were coaches. I Know Doug coach a little bit high school. After I got done playing like Kelly Moore's been doing this since he was like five. You've been a football his family's work. That's what they do a little bit like Shanahan mcvay just who they are just a huge advantage you have when you're if you've ever read or heard about bell. Jack Bill Check was watching film when he was six just because his dad was into it was part of it was working in the game and and some guys like most of us. I I it everything I do. It's GonNa take a while. I didn't grow up in a I mean I grew up in a sports family but just like my dad was a coach football like I got a crash course in football once I kind of got to Fresno state and luckily I worked for a high level gun. I learned a lot but I didn't know much going in so I was up against people and probably around people that had just been doing a lot longer. It takes time and a lot of coaches are like that you get in the NFL. It should take fifteen ten years whatever but some people just have an advantage because they've been doing it their whole life and her just meant for the moment meant to do that and that would be the way I would describe Kellen Moore and and I think that it's a game changer for the Dallas cowboys because obviously you wouldn't take Dak Prescott over Patrick Mahomes or over Carson Wentz. No human would do that just from talents standpoint but coaching league and the cowboys have really lack offense of creativity something the eagles the chiefs even the the bears have with Nagy. We don't have that the rams and the forty niners. They have with air offensive. Minds Lenihan didn't bring to the table this kid does and I'm not trying the overreact. I liked it if you've listened to show you know I like Dallas but now that I got to see it with my own eyes when I already believed. I just didn't really say it. I think the sky's the limit I think Philly I think Philly in Dallas I mean it might take thirteen wins to win the NFC East because those teams and their ceiling is we we are to new the chief ceiling was high but those two just kind of threw their hat in the ring. Remember US forget about us an especially Dow we know that about Carson and in Philly but Dallas telling you that this little little get this little left-hander I think he's from Washington or Montana or some little ass town that played a boise state. Is the real deal. I think we'd we all agree. That pressure is a real thing. Whether it's you know the pressure that your parents played on you when your kid whether it's the pressure once you have children or a wife to provide for your family whether it's the pressure of hitting the first tee shot in front of people watching you like it's a real thing and I think we also all agree. The more you do something. The better equipped. You are to handle pressure. It's why I the older. I've gotten in life the more calm. Im in situations that I used to freak out about used to have a hot temper when I was younger and I matured about to be thirty five years old. I can just handle situations better. Do I still handle them. Well hopefully when I'm forty five or fifty five. I'll just keep growing maturing the more you experience in life the better you handle them right like tiger woods didn't show up at the masters in ninety seven and win it he had been experiencing pressure from his father who had been putting him through this just intense daily operation. If you ever read the book incredible he was bred for he was meant for but he spent his entire life basically eighteen eighteen of twenty years of life getting ready for that moment. It wasn't like you just showed up in one right. It's not the way it works. Go read about Jeff bezos he he's been and swing and his pick for Amazon the mid nineties two thousand years right after one thousand nine hundred so things don't just typically happen overnight and and usually when you put someone into a pressure situation that has never been in a pressure situation like in that individual role. It's GonNa go oh poorly because for the most part people aren't equipped to handle it and when you look at some recent successes on initial coaches go around the league in the NFL Sean mcvay took over a team that most people thought was going to be terrible thought they were going to be horrendous. Their a quarterback couldn't take snaps from under center. The expectations were there wasn't that much pressure now clearly. There's pressure on being a head coach and leading men for sure but the pressure of winning Matt Nagy went to the Chicago bears. John Fox was a joke. I mean was working like four hours a day. When Doug Peterson took over chip Kelly it couldn't have been any worse like it was as low as it got. The expectations were tiny. There wasn't that much pressure to get to kind of ease into the job. First Time head coaches. Freddie Kitchens took over a job that had tangible pressure there was justified probably not but there was legit pressure now Freddie Kitchens as a human being. He's been a star in quarterback at Alabama like he's faced pressure before so the analogy. It's not like he comes in blind. He's felted in his life but he's never been a head coach. If you check out his resume he's never called place so he goes into a situation where he's never. GonNa head coach. He's never called place. We're the expectations are beyond Outta. Whack and you see it immediately. He plays a team and most people most. You know that fall football thought the Cleveland browns. We're going to dominate the Tennessee titans now. I'm not a big believer in the Tennessee titans in the sense that I didn't expect it to look like that but if you take a step back you go well the Tennessee titans. The last three years have ever nine wins a season in two years ago. They won a playoff game and fired coach Mike Gabel. Ask Your one one nine games in his quarterback got knocked out a week sixteen. He didn't have for wheat seventeen or we probably would've made the playoffs so Mike Gabel who has been a team captain for Bella check in one of the smartest players the last couple of decades then gets hired by urban Meyer then becomes defensive coordinator for Bill O'Brien. Then gets gets a head coaching job after turning down head coaching opportunities so Freddie Kitchens was in this situation. No one was offering them at Goja their questions if anyone was even offering them an offense coordinator the job so he goes into a situation where the pressure is just extreme and like any of us if you put me in a situation that I've never been in before and the pressure on that is as high as it possibly get and you know when you walk into a situation if you just middle. You'RE GONNA work tomorrow for Goldman Sachs on Wall Street abby. I'd be weighing over my head. I'd freak I'd lose. I'm already a nail biter anyway them all off well Freddie Kitchens who thinks he's equipped because he's he's a football guy. Former player coast league for a while has no business coaching this team being the head coach and you watch the team one thing I think that always translates translates. Any walk of life is toughness now. Obviously if you're a sales guy you run a small business run restaurant. Whatever you don't need to be physically tough tough. You're not unless you're bouncer or or a professional athlete. physicality doesn't come into most of our lives right. You're not actually touching anyone legally. You're not allowed to can't hit anyone. You can't shove anyone but you do have to be mentally tough and this gets back to the pressure like mental toughness is legitimate and that is I think we'd also all agree. Their mental toughness has built over time. I don't think you're just born being like a navy seal. Now it's ingrained into you and it's built. Maybe at a younger age but you're not just born with that trait. It's something that's acquired through work at whatever you're doing and like I said maturity physical toughness though with football is something the thing that is established and it come from the head coach because you either have football team or you don't and there's only one person to blame it your coach and the team that you've assembled and when I when I close my eyes and I think Mike variable I think just bad ass I just that guy's a bad ass now. He's kind of a funny bad. Ask you can tell he grew a mustache as probably a joke and then he just kept rocking like some guys especially guys like over fifty. Fifty five have a moustache Bruce Bochy. Andy Reid the mustache. Is there look like they just wear. I have good family friends whose DADS have mustaches. They've had mustaches since I've known him in the late eighties they where a mustache personally. I can't grow a mustache my hair. My facial hair is not thinking. Mike variable is not a mustache guy. He's rocking one and it actually pulls it off but his team is tough. They've been tough and they they not only hit the browns in the teeth. Sometimes what's my favorite line. Everyone has a game plan until you get in the mouth. The the differences like you can hit the Patriots in the mouth. They'll get up. I watch Patrick mahomes get hit in the mouth by the New England Patriots in the AFC championship. He didn't lay on the Mat. He got back now. Ultimately he didn't win the fight but got back up and kept swinging. I watched the browns get hit in the teeth in the second half of that game and have no they wilted like a flower big tap out. They were just done the analogy I'd make of what we witnessed yesterday with the browns in Rabaul against Freddie Freddie Kitchens was just an establishment on toughness. We're just tougher than you. We think you're fake tough. We think you guys I heard Collins Ran US talk. Talk Talk to me talking. Whatever some people can backing up. I don't mind talking. If you like Randy Moss talk forever. You couldn't stop Michael Jordan talk. He kicked your Ass Tiger Woods Shit Talk. It didn't matter if you can back it up. I had no issue with talking with Mike Variable. Did I'm not a big guy but you know in a UFC fight when the dude straddles the guy's face when he gets them on the ground any takes his elbow and he starts elbowing face and yours like he might kill him and the referee always always comes over immediately grabs the guy on top of them in blows the whistle and shoves the guy off of other fighter the equivalent of what Mike variable did Freddie Kitchens and the Cleveland browns is that same scenario straddling his face in the middle of the octagon blasting with elbow shot to the face. The difference in this scenario is there was no referee furry. He just kept pounding him over and over and over again. It was a it was a clinic on toughness. We are just tougher than you and we've been hit the teeth before. I got hit the teeth last year. Mariota went out and they lost week seventeen. That's a mentally tough team because again for able like who'd Ray will learn from not not just some random. He was Bella checks team. Captain Pretty sure multiple titles count three he he's. He's the real deal look at the people that have hired tired of Urban Meyer Bill O'Brien now. He's hired to be head coach. Tennessee like Mike rebels on a completely different level than Freddie Kitchens and I'm not trying to shit on Freddie kitchens he he never should have been put in this situation just like I said earlier in the podcast on Antonio Brown. He never should have been raider. You put them in the situation. You got issues like I'm not into bashing Baker. I think bakers acres good player. I do think he got humbled a little bit yesterday. Sundays have hold many men over the years right so and you got the Odell with the watch what I don't even none of that means anything to me. I just know what I watch because I don't judge. All the fluff doesn't mean anything to me. Words don't mean anything to me. I just judge humans is on their action in any walk of life whether it's politics whether it's the community I live in whether it's football. I live in new in an area where everyone just they claim really all into helping people and we're just very socially liberal and then I see those same people tweet that and talked about it. Lyn these enormous houses and parts of town where they don't help anyone out they refused to build low income housing they talk big game just like I saw a member. Pete Carroll last year called Colin Kaepernick starting quarterback to this guy's starting quarterback in the NFL Pete Carroll desperately needed a backup quarterback and didn't sign up like you don't believe that you're saying one thing and you do another Cy. I despise hypocrites. I just I if I say something. I try to live it now. We've all been hypocritical at times in our life that happens but if you're going to say something walked away you talk and I just the browns they just there are a lot of fluff there and at the end of the day you can get by with your good enough and tough enough and Michael Jordan Larry Bird. This is the greatest shit talker in the history of sports. He backed up because he was tough as nails are very talented but you can see their issue the toughness because in football and I get in social media everyone wants to be soft and you know BNP and the culture. Everyone's everyone being nice to everyone. That's translates well. I guess on the Internet but in football like you gotta be tougher than the guy across from you and for the most part you gotta be better guy across from you but if you're not tough enough mentally and physically when you get hit in the jaw figuratively and football like you get knocked down and you get blasted. Can you just pick yourself up. Shake yourself golf swing again but you know what the steelers. I'm not right in the steelers off. They got punked page Arizona them. I think they'll be fine are they. As bad as we what we just witnessed of course not they've shown over and over. They're not going to go away so I'm not going to overreact to that loss. The colts thought the colts lost showed a lot of toughness. I thought Detroit did not show a lot of toughness. They just kind of they're just not a tough team and their their head coach on the sideline looks like a disaster. He's got a torn when Achilles he I mean he looks so unhealthy. He looks so unhealthy that team has just soft and the softest team of the weekend though beside the dolphins and I I don't even count the dolphins they they are not you know they're in the NFL but I don't count them as an NFL team. The browns should be ashamed of themselves from a toughness standpoint and you you just. I think that's going to be their downfall. I I don't know if starts at the top in their coaches just over his head of course he's over said he never should have got this job. No other team in the League would have hired him none now. He's the head coach of a team with these crazy. Expectations set him up to fail. Let's compare to laptops the surface laptop to and the macbook air surface laptop to faster which means you can work faster to it also has longer battery life than the macbook air so feel free to kick back with another episode you can watch all day and keep watching and unlike any. Mac Book Surface Laptop to has a touchscreen which makes everything that much easier with the surface laptop to there's hardly any comparison learn much more surface dot com slash laptop to WANNA hit on a couple of things that I saw this weekend just rapid fire. Keep it short that I want to touch on a couple of college football thanks to hit on a couple of NFL things. I didn't touch on then. We'll get into the MIDDLEKAUFF mailbag. We'll start on Saturday. One Joe Boroughs of the real deal. I was out having fun on downtown where I live had a few cocktails and sports bar and which is every time I looked up the dude was making a Li throws the thing. Lsu has lacked really these last twenty years really maybe not that may since tomorrow's Russell they have had an Alabama clemson an Ohio state level squad. They have not had a quarterback if they get quarterback quarterback play at that level. They have a chance to win a national title. I don't think that's like some crazy overreaction. They had the dudes they always have their defense is always stacked. Their wide receivers are always awesome and their skill guys they just need a quarterback and this joe borough cat looks like the real deal chip. Kelly is a disaster. I don't think he's a locked. Make the year three. He just lost San Diego State for the first time in program history. They play Oklahoma this week. He's GonNa get destroyed. He then plays Washington state. He's GonNa get destroyed. It's going to be Owen for he stealing money. He is absolutely stealing money for. Ucla and I just think it's crazy that they hired him coming off the years yeah. He's not a good coach. It's just that we have the evidence in he's not a good coach. He inherited a good program. He took it to another level. He was a great coach at at Oregon because he was just he was on a different level on things that people weren't implementing their offense now he does something that everyone does so everyone does what he does in terms of pace and movement. He's never been able to coach defensive. UCLA's trainwreck and there might have been fifteen thousand people rose bowl for those of you that have never been to the Rose Bowl. It's awesome one into I'm pretty sure it holds like ninety five thousand people so it's not your typical west coast venue is massive and again. Mida I too had twelve thousand people there so the program is an absolute shambles and on the flip side. Lynn Swann just retired. USC Klay Hilton Klay owns probably GONNA get fired unless they run the table. Make the playoffs and win the PAC twelve which is going to be hard though he's done a good job he he just kicked the crap. Stanford was backup quarterback but I do respect in admire unlike chip. Kelly takes recruiting seriously. He works really hard at it. I think he values the job. It's just they're going to bring in a new. Ad Us has never really hired a coach. You know that wants top dollar. When they got Carol. He was like fourth in line so he might have been fifth in line so they usually you despite it being a quote unquote great job. They don't really get the top notch coach. Let's go to Sunday Lamar Jackson. I've been very hard on the mar in the sense that I didn't believe Venom. I'm not going to overreact that I was completely wrong. They played Miami and as I said earlier Miami's a joke I mean they are an embarrassment of NFL team mm-hmm but I'm not going to diminish you. Go Five touchdowns and you dominate like that in the first half hat tip nothing but respect. I say it all the time when I don't like a guy coming out. I didn't like Josh Allen. I didn't like Lamar Jackson. If you're good guy and Lamar Jackson Josh Allen Their character from what I've known in heard heard and people that are is pristine. I root for those guys. I hope Lamar Jackson am wrong. I want him to kick ass same. Josh Allen Awesome drive another the guy who wasn't playing very well who is like a bigger version of trubisky. The first three quarters made some plays down the stretch. That's that's a good win. The bills are going to we are going to be sneaky tough. They really are. I don't know what to make of Kyla Murray and the Detroit Lions. I really don't. I don't really have a takeaway from that game now. Now I do have a takeaway. I tweeted this out. There was a couple of text reds. I was on with some friends. I was on another one with some. NFL people in there there was a lot of being talked about Kyle Marine Cliff Kingsbury and at the end of the day they did come back forced into overtime and tie the game so they shut me up a little bit. Jameis Winston is a bust like it's a he's a full on bust. There is no way around it. He is a walking disaster. He's a walking pick. Six is what he is. He literally through to an easily could have been a third. They went right through the forty. Niners free safeties hands. He would a walk one hundred yards words into the end zone. The James Sucks. I mean there's just there's just simply put just end of story period point blank. I mean He. He's a disaster his his days of starting quarterback are now. He's on the clock like it's it's over like his days are numbered. It might just be this season. It will never happen again now. He may start again but he's going to be a backup quarterback in the very very near future and he will not be the quarterback of the Tampa Bay buccaneers the giants stink. I mean they are really really bad. Personnels awful. I feel bad for Saquon Barkley who by far beside side like all the cowboys was the only other sweet nude on the giants like he's awesome. He is a really really fun player to watch but man is it sucks being such a great running back on a team. That is that crappy because they are. They couldn't be any worse. I mean they really could not be worse. There are better version the dolphin thin so they might win a couple of games but ain't winning mini games. I I'd be shocked if they won. If you told me the over under was three and a half I I might take the honor to me. They look like three and thirteen team. I mean the divisions hard because the eagles and cowboys are stacked. The redskins are good bad team like they're not GonNa win many games but the roster's that's pretty good and does anyone not give a damn less than Jay Gruden or more. I however a guy however you could possibly give a damn less like it's Jay. Gruden take great quote after the game when they ask them. Why didn't he have Adrian Peterson active and he said well. Maybe we'll get him up next game. If we plan on running at fifty five times and running it out of the I formation formation like he he's at the point now where he gives zero zero fs I mean zero negative negative worries about how he's GonNa in a pre perceived in this building like he knows he's done this last year in Washington and whether I don't know enough about him I do know I do. You think he's pretty good coach grew news them as his offense coordinator and to get his offense one of this year struggles. Maybe that's not crazy but Jay gruden could not Carolina how his owner or general manager view him right now. He's just he probably not a better interview in the NFL. 'cause you could ask them anything and he'll do. You might answer it truthfully. which would you don't get the probably the last thing I want to mention this game? Dalvin Cook looks like a superstar. The Vikings are going to be good actually a sneaky pretty good week. Two Game Vikings Vikings at packers. I'm actually pretty interested in watching that game. Because of whoever wins that game's GonNa be feeling pretty good about themselves to enough green bay wins that they would have beaten they would have left be to an own the division. Maybe after pretty good starts actually a sneaky pretty important early season game but the Atlanta Falcons what a joke you talk about a soft off culture for Dan Quinn for being tough guy they are. They are really really soft and I thought they'd be a playoff team. I liked him in that game. I'm out. I I really am especially. I mean the they play the eagles this week. Eagles could kick their ass. Falcons can be in a little trouble okay. Let's get to the middlekauff mail back. It's where you guys can ask me. Questions go to instagram my. DM's wide open. I always say it's much easier to get a hold. Hold of me either taxed. DM's so DM Agile middlekauff twitter handle instagram handle. I answered questions here. Hey John a the best in the business. I appreciate that. Do you think the packers I'm not but I appreciate like the Google get patted every once in a while. Do you think the packers should consider trading from Melvin Gordon. I like Aaron Jones. I think we'd agree sort of a middle of the pack. I don't want to overreact in one game especially against defense like the bears but the packers don't really have any elite weapons for Roger's other than devante question goes on and on but you know what I take Melvin Gordon for for a fourth round pick yeah but they're not giving away and here's I'm not paying. This is the one thing I've noticed so for a couple of Saturdays. I consume Milan College football they're going to be I tweeted this last weekend. I might even be off. There might be six or seven running. Backs in this draft class asked to get drafted in the top ninety players. So why would you give up a third or fourth round. Pick for Melvin and then have to pay them when you can just draft a starter in this upcoming draft because I'm telling you it is stacked with dudes. There are a lot of guys from E. T. N. TO THE KITTY UTAH to the kid at Arizona state their just dues everywhere every game mm-hmm. I watch of the good teams. They got running backs question for the mail back. What is up with Nagy not running the ball. I I talked about on the last podcast. I think he just got away from it. When Roger scored early in that game because it's not going to be a shootout you have a great defense. Just run the ball control the clock and win ugly like that's how to me. The bears are GONNA. You have to win. They're going to dominate on defense top three or four scoring defense and they're going to be just a pound the ball and you gotta be Misha's not mahomes. He's not Carson wentz dance. He's not back so you got. I think now you go back to the drawing board and he's GonNa Start running the Baltimore. Hey John just hard listen to the show about a month ago. Helps my work faster appreciate that my question people seem to bunch all air raids together as a big. Fan I've seen differences between cliff leach leach browse and Riley which would transfer best to the NFL and why I was asking someone today. I realize I don't completely know what defines air-raid arrayed because if you've watched leach he uses running back. They just wrote a lot. Just don't use they don't hand the ball off like Lincoln Riley who has some air raid on right because he's been around. Those guys to me really utilizes the run game. I think Lincoln Riley definitely would I think leach with the right system system would kingsbury at the end of the day. I just don't think it's a good coach. You know he couldn't win. It Texas Tech Mike Lee. She's just a better version of cliff. Kingsbury cooking's McCain's. Were just not going to be good enough now. If you get to play you know Matt Patricia every we could be in good shape but I got news for you. Get P Carol you get Sean McVeigh you get cow. Shanahan the hand and the other problem for the air raid offense and I think you're GonNa see this year at Oklahoma is for the first time since Venables Oklahoma's. Oklahoma's got a legit defensive coordinator Washington state underrated. These last couple of years has played defense. Clicking very doesn't know anything about defense any arguments worst defensive. It's a coordinator in the League and Vance Joseph. You gotta play defense just wondering what your thoughts are on the jets this year also any best bets for this week so this was right missile before the Sunday games but I can answer the first question I think the jets be after watching that game offensively might be a struggle Ogle. Now Levian should get better as the season goes on their offensive line's a little hit or miss. They don't have too many weapons but the one touted tied in you know suspended. I think the first four games I wouldn't write him off yet but after watching the bills you know bits and pieces of the bills jets game. I would lean that the bills are probably a game or two better you know at the end of the day. The bills probably go eight nine wins. I think best case scenario for the bills nine worst-case seven where the jets best case probably eight nate nate worst-case six and ten somewhere in that sweet spot probably a year away. I mean they haven't had a G. M. Health since after OTA's so I think the jets are probably your way after you're staying though I do think they got something pretty special and Sam Darnold but he he's got a long way to question for the mailbox. Much like holdouts have become the norm for players want a contract extension one year now sometimes two years early do you think ABC's released from the raiders and signing with New England's sets a bad precedent for the league any player who gets traded to a team he's unhappy with could just act up and get released if he's crazy enough or good enough to give the guaranteed money and security to a new market well. Here's the problem is that Antonio Brown had one thing working for him. He's the best wide receiver in the League and the raiders in this situation. Waesche in the raiders are viewed as the joke like whenever the raiders screw something up all the teams around the league just say to themselves. It's the raiders like if this had happened with the eagles or the word the seahawks people would go well. It's it's the guy it's the player not the team but in this case we will just go. It's the team plus in season to sign a guy to a decent money contract. You need to have some money available like your cap can't be taken so they were uniquely equipped and again. I think ballot check just views the raiders being nuts. I don't think he even cares what Antonio did because he also knows if Antonio doesn't shape in form he'll shape out 'cause they'll cut them. I always enjoy hearing stories from their scouting days. Can you tell us from the very start of the scouting process about one specific player. You scouted that worked out well well. I was in house a couple years. So my first couple years you just do pro scouting which means you guys are kind of already in the League and established. I I remember watching Cornell mcphee a fourth round draft pick in thinking like God. This is pretty incredible now but again. These guys were already in the League now my I did. I worked the road for a year my three favorite players. I did the West Coast. I love Dionne Dionne Jordan who's been a bust STARLA. The LELE who just not that good solid and Ziggy Ansah that was really good. He player and was injured. Who just can't stay healthy. Eighty rotter woods was a guy. I really really liked and I just liked his attitude. I liked the way he played. I love just watching them practice at USC that year USC Lee was off more. I just thought he was going to be a star and those first couple of years and Buffalo's disaster now. Sometimes you see like situation -Tuation in the NFL plays a big part in your success you know and ever since he came to l. a. where he's from is changes career and he's become. I don't know if he's a number one rider seaver but he's a damn good number two so I'm a big Robert Woods guy and I'll never forget going through. Byu. They they tell you that grew up in Africa. He didn't know what football was. He walked onto the Byu track team and the football players are playing pick a basketball and he was playing there and I think one of the players is like what the hell and they started talking to him like Bro. You need to come out. You need to come meet Bronco Mendenhall and so they they invited him to like the football offices. This guy was like a walk on track athlete but he's six five to sixty run. He had never played football for his life and Broncos are working with them three years. Later is a fifth pick in the draft. Okay my question is not super serious but what I'm curious to hear your all time starting lineup offense defense kicker-punter not necessarily the goats but if you guys but if the guys you like most of all time well that would take some time but let's just go on the on the outer limits because the lines would take some time. I go brady my favorite running back ever in my lifetime for me would be Ladainian Tomlinson favor tight end would be gronk. The wide receivers would be Jerry Rice you you gotTa have on your team so all go. Randy Moss. I'm a sucker for grown up in the bay. I'll go slot receiver. You know if I just had my favorite slot receiver. He's not the best but I I mean Jules my guy. I freaking love settlement full-back. That's a good good one. What what fullback would I go with. I growing up. I Love William Floyd Forty niners on some of those good early ninety steams. Moose Johnson was really good player. You you pick one of those guys backup quarterback. If Brady was my starter who want to be my backup. I'd probably go with like Marino as always just kind of like Marino and let's go defense. I go reggie white this again. These are not necessarily the best players ever but I loved John. Randall like him on the inside. give me ago Aaron. Donald Give me Lt Middle Linebacker. I'm I'm going Ray. Louis safeties Earl Thomas Ed Reed corners ongoing Dion Sanders in. I'm going in all its. I disliked this guy style. I'm going Richard Sherman or go read the summary. Vis Vis veteran Sherman coach. I'm going ballot. Check kicker. I'm going just because you need a drinking buddy. I'll go so bashing Jankowski ponder. I'll go ray guy. Throwback old school battlefield my head on the real note did you. What did you think of the Vikings. Today cousins look really solid and Alvin Cook. That boy can run yeah. I mean there's if the vikings dominates they're going to be. They're going to be in pretty good shape because they control the clock. Cousins had ten attempts. They played the Atlanta Falcons. He threw the ball ten times and they were up twenty eight nothing in the in the fourth quarter. I mean I mean the third corps. It was an ass-whipping. I think the Vikings kings you talked to anyone in the NFL. Their team is really talented. There's no disputing at their roster. Good cousins just I dunno be somewhat of a game manager manager. You know you you if you only have to ten attempts in a game like you're in pretty good shape podcast viewer to build an NFL roster. What positions can you sacrifice in the salary cap or look to have younger more inexperienced players at running back corner outside Linebacker linebacker. I would invest heavily in Defensive Line Agir quarterback my tackles couple. I need swing wide receivers in two thousand nineteen in tight end so I I would try to make shifted running back and fullback. I would like to have a cheaper wide receiver to go along with my expensive wide receiver. I'd try had a piece match. It was solid young guards and centers. I wouldn't want high priced guards and centers so I'd have to draft picks. I spent a lot of my defensive of line. I'd I'd want some sweet draft this guy in like third or fourth round in an athletic linebacker that can run but I don't need Ray Lewis in two thousand nineteen in corners corners. I would just try to kick your ass up front and just my corners would just try to get by with. I mean look at the Eagles. They're going to win twelve or thirteen games cornes. I good big big packers guy. Do you believe the NFL would ever allow players to advertise for themselves. During Games might theory is the NFL just signed a sponsorship with Oakley with the popularity of graphic visors players wearing practice. Do you think could ever move to a player being paid to wear company logos on the visors. No I think there's rules for that. That's why the NFL splits revenue with all the Jersey stuff so like the NFL. You get paid for you know the Nike deal the the NFL has that's how the revenue sharing works as I'm recording the middlekauff mailbag. I'm watching the Houston Texans. John Watson just had a pretty sweet touchdown so i. I don't think that you'll see that you know I think that that's pretty well established that they share money through the revenue sharing. Just threw already the waste it works because then it would get too complicated. I think the players can do it off. The field usually right through social media Patrick Mahomes Oakley. Tom Brady eggs the million partnerships that the players make so much money that way. It's not even really a big deal. Appreciate everyone listening. What a fun week one I account. I mean you gotTa Love Football Right. It doesn't get much better than the National Football League and thanks for listening. I appreciate everyone taking the time and listen to me. Talk about it because you guys can do this so we'll just keep it rolling baby the NFL's back. We're all back and it's time to roll pace here. In the Montgomery County Maryland courthouse. There are thousands of pages of documents detailing the horrific murders of three innocent people soon as I heard the details I knew my dad was involved right away instantly Lawrence but at the time of the murders Lawrence French horn was clear across the country.

And you can actually actually just listen to this on Itunes soundcloud spotify all the other places. Senator Your questions at nerds. Who for you edgy? Mel Dot Com nerd soup on twitter nerds monkey teddy nerd soup. Anthony Zinni Jacob Nash. Yeah let's get right into the watchman finale. It's the first video we're doing on watchmen and I think it's fitting that it's the end you know the end is yeah. I mean I it probably would have been nice Get the buzz gone. For the whole season it was winner Manda and we chose man But Watch Disney plus books books boy. That's a fact watchmen is smoking spectacular television. Yeah we probably should have checked. Checked out watchmen. We'll do we. Were watching it. Yeah and we're going to do a this whole season review so yeah come back for that as well. yeah watchmen it's Nana's such A. It took me a while to get on pace with it. Kept having the catch up so I had the luxury of watching six seven eight and nine within a week span right and those talk about a string of just perfect episodes reminds me of US world season one where the last four episodes where it was promising to start with. There was a mystery there but the way that they brought this home it was just moment after moment of me being stunned but being able to appreciate where the story was going. Well that's the vantage. You have a limited serious. 'cause there are talks of season two but if it has to be the right script so they very much made this to to contain and had tilts Sewri one-season. So when you have so much mystery and intrigue and you're basically going towards the end. All those episodes are going abby. Amazing Yeah and This finale the way that they tied up all the stories because at times it felt like there were too many stories going on at once. And I didn't know if I I I know that I I enjoyed what I was washing. The first three episodes I was a bit apprehensive where the story was going but the way that they I mean. There's so many scenes to get through the we're not gonNA be able to touch on in this review but you know the scene with Angelo and her grandfather talking at the end. That was schist. That's when the bow is finally tied and it's where you stand up you take take a bow. We just finished this story and that scene. I couldn't help but cry. It was it was so emotional. The journey that these two characters have been on and You know in the way that they brokeback all the icons and their storylines. Yeah I felt that way too because Oh this happened anybody else. By the way I started watching the episode I put it on the HBO APP and the previously on. And I saw a scene that I haven't seen before. It was when Ozzy Mandy is in prison. Yes I'm like. What the fuck did I missiles credit did I miss an episode that I smartwatch like all these episodes when the hell did this happen I went back and I found that at the end. So I'm like Oh my God I had to watch this I but I was wondering before that point point like what does he. What does he do you get out of here The involved with the rest of the story well his the the scene between him and his daughter. The flashback scene between two thousand in that takes place in two thousand eight that was incredible and That was because I didn't really read into a lot of the theory videos at in. Watch a lot. I watched A Lotta hacks dogmas videos his recaps but I. I had no idea that that was coming. Yeah that they were going to reveal her as his daughter. Yeah so and then when they peel back when he's got the message Uh on Jupiter's Moon Europa and save me daughter. I saw the others doctor Manhattan at first but Yeah Lady. True is phenomenal character. Part of this generation and perfect. I think she was the best. Carter against Moore on the whole season review but in this episode alone I think that was a it was a a good conclusion for like such a great character because you never really knew what her what she wanted to do you know. She always wants a sense that she's trying to push the bar technologically Lianne. She has some plan but to see her in that moment. Where you have her where I guess? She's kind of the antagonise but she's really not because she's saying that she wants to do all the stuff that Dr in Manhattan wouldn't do and then as you Mandy Esa great line on its takes one to know one where narcissists once you give them that power You don't know what they I think. We'll be right. And it kind of causes that divide but when she's given that whole speech to the ends and the chiefs wife's like just do it already he's like. Oh No yeah I'm GONNA kill you. Yeah yeah then and that realization for all of them. They're like Oh shit she's really going to kill us and it's it's similar to Obviously as India's from the from the comic where hero for much of her life and then she becomes a comic book villain at the end. Because that's a very much a comic book villain thing to do Take the power of Dr Manhattan. Say You'RE GONNA fix the world but probably go completely crazy and like you said takes on no-one Adrian vite new you know he gets the moment to kind of really save the world this time around this one is it's more black and white it's more we're clear. Cut what he does in this moment dropping the frozen squids and bringing back Looking glass that was great. He because he was the most affected character that we got got introduced to from the first event right so he was an incredible episode. The giant squid so that was It was nice to have him in the room. Especially at the end when sucks back. There's like like you're coming with us. He killed three million people right. And it's funny 'cause looking less as this generation's Roszak and he kinda gets justice obviously the impact of him being there at Ground Zero when the squid dropped he he comes face to face with the man that really shaped his life after his his teenage years and he gets to put him down seeing the ship seeing the old night owl ship that was cool. So people who didn't necessarily read the comic but watch the movie they'll recognize that and at the end for Dr Madden Angeles relationship. That was very heartbreaking heartbreaking. This guy just keeps He just loves women. I guess you know you can't stay away trying to figure out like his perception of time. And how he's experiencing everything at once and the whole time like well. Why doesn't he do anything about it like he knows he's going to die but if he does and how would he? He would know something different that he does. I think they they kind of answer that in that episode. Where they're having the date? Yeah where he surprised to learn that her parents died even though he already told her that he knew that her parents died. It's like he knows but he doesn't doesn't see can't change it. I know that this is going to happen. But it's still a surprise to me. You know. Yeah my brain can't comprehend any of that. But it's it's cool I'm bullshitting yeah. Well that's why when people complain about the very ending. It's I don't know if I would consider this an ambiguous ending because I think it's it's kind of spelled out for us And with going to the way that Dr Manhattan views time I think we have to view the series that way as well especially with hooded justices. You know the way that everything comes full circle. That's always kind of the message. Passage of watchman you know. The Non Linear Perspective of time. Nothing ever ending things continually evolving and changing but coming back to the beginning. I have no idea what I'm saying right now but they still find a way to humanize these characters in these stories. And that's what's so impressive. Yeah that was like one of the most like surprising things when I live from when I first started watching like Angela's connection action at Dr Manhattan. I could never have predicted that when it first kicked off. So they kind of tied that up or kind of started that relationship up How did you interpret that ending? What went with him leaving his power in the egg? Do you believe that's what he did. I don't know it's I think maybe feel like Angela's was still Angela right. You know. And she just she just ate the egg so maybe take some time for it to kick in but I feel like as a a fan of that character. I kinda don't want her to be herself. Still like just what I would want to see if there is a second season. I don't want it to be. Because that's that's gotTa Suck I don't know why by the the racist Senator Lady true wanted those powers because dodger Manhattan. I mean having all that information process. Yeah it's cool you can do stuff with your mind and he can teleport and fly. But you're basically you. Humanity is taken away and they did that. In the original watchmen movie. And you see a lot of that in this one where he seems to be disengaged and not really there even though he is right and he talks about his regrets is regrets in Vietnam and some of the choices that he made so he was trying to change the world the way that he felt would better the world so that that's how I kind of interpreted the ending that I don't know this might be reached but his whole relationship with Angela was him him almost looking for somebody worthy of this power and it happened to be. Somebody fell in love with because her grandfather has that line. He was a good man but for all the power that he had he probably should have done more with it. Yeah so maybe it's it's finding that's why don't WanNA season two. Because that's how I'm choosing to kind of perceive. The ending is that Angela does get this power for and she uses it in a way. That's that's more productive more or less controversial. He knows he can't be in a regular relationship or have a normal life with these powers and that's why he chooses to suppress them right. Have the thing put in his head and he basically they tell him that he had amnesia. And basically I had started started anew and start over try to live normal life. I don't know why he would necessarily want to put that burden on Angela. Well I think he knows that it's somebody should have this burden and I'm not worthy of it. So yeah he I mean obviously he does say their relationship is going to end tragically so that could also be considered a tragic ending. It's now here's the burden of being doctor Manhattan and you have to do a better than what I did but yeah no. That's a good point because it's kind of like Superman I always say superman is Clark Kent. And then he's forced to be superman whereas whereas it's the opposite for Batman that man is Batman and he's forced to Bruce Wayne to hide the identity and I think it's the same thing with doctor. Manhattan you know. He he keeps coming back. He keeps getting tangled up in the web. Uh of humanity. He wants that humanity. But he's got these these awesome powers so it makes it makes it a bit of a struggle. Did you like his look. Yeah it was Kind of kept kept the same actor right. He kind of took that form. Yes 'cause I And he just made them made a blue so he kind of blended the two and yeah. That was aqel choice. Because you still have that. It's something where Yamaha Abdul Mateen. Yes second is the actor a great job in my opinion. Yeah and tremendous HOG OCTO-. Oh Man Dude was yeah. That's why I love that. When he goes to meet Adrian and he's like knows me only doctor Manhattan would have the balls to San the nation? Yeah we got to see some blue dog too. So yeah it's Everything the fans wanted So if you basically only if you cast it an actor that would be the kid that we see when they escape from the Nazis right yes and you cast an older version of him. I feel connection would get lost between him Angela. Because it's new character that not a new character but in this series kind of contained to hear that comes in I yeah I think as an audience you know might be might be a disconnect between Angela. And that's this new character but when you keep it the same and the person that she's been with the past ten years that kind of I think that makes those moments even more impactful right like it's so it's Dr Manhattan but there's some familiar familiarity with the character and right parents and it kind of just help that connection. Yeah I mean he looks great in the movie but yeah I do like that that he kind of takes on the facial structures of the person that he was mimicking looking. Yeah The performances all throughout were just incredible. Gaza Juniors will reduce the Hoda Justice episode. Obviously really get into that in our other video but the way that they wrap that up with with his story with with cyclops and the changes that they made to the comic while not changing. Anything of the main story was completely brilliant. Jean Smart as Louis Blake. Louis Blake Blake one of my favorite characters. One of the funniest lines from last night's episode was when looking glass the peers. And she's like Mira Guy here even in this moment of the world about the entry still fucking with him because of the mass or she did that again to when the blast happens and Standards like dead. Yeah right yeah. Yeah Yeah I like those those little jabs they had back and forth even when they go to his new. Stand your love the news dancing but when they go back to layer and FBI agent agent Blake. Yeah great character there at the season Yeah the newsstand where he's basically forgotten which we'll get we'll talk about a more but the whole arc was incredible. Yeah the fact that he wanted to go to that place. Because he's such a narcissist unwanted and realizing right away like I need to get the fuck Outta here. It's funny because it's almost like his prison in paying for the crimes that he committed him slaughtering half in New York and then coming back home and realizing he's going to get arrested anyway with Robert Richard which is awesome. I love the fact. That Robert Redford is the president and that line when he's like Redford won't return. My calls like like some cowboy can win the presidency Z.. By himself I love show student and I guess she's had them there for a while right. Well Yeah because Blake sees that Golden Statue. Yeah yeah so but also to when he gets off. I gotTa tell you something even though Angela Joosten earlier and he's probably going to tell you that your your mind and she got she got it right away like your mother. Yeah what the fuck. That's a weird man. Yeah a lot of weird stuff going on family Yeah right when it gets off. It's like fucking you close your so you're more of a Sicko than me. I liked that. They gave him his hero moment but then he's also GonNa pay for what he did yes. They handled everything. I think so brilliantly and another great scenes like just who this character is even when he got shot and he stabs him and then he's like holdovers offers like it's like yeah. I needed a worthy adversary. Like was I said no no and him calling his daughter. The worthy adversary. There were so many things that they tied up imperfectly and I think it's it's my favorite television series that I've watched this year previously. It was the boys very similar But a very worthy successor to the comic I love the comic great performances. Great Story Hope. There's not a season two and we'll get more into it in a later review but our any last thought. Yeah UH season two. I always feel all this way would good shows that I enjoy the run but I think I had as I said the same thing of the end of the fucking world which different scale and all that but also what stranger things you know sometimes sometimes a story so perfect in one season but if they can continue and they have a you know if he gets another stroke of genius and has something that. Hey this is actually going to work. If it's something where I'm only going to write the second season if I if I have a great idea then by all means go for it but I just hope they don't force it right. It would have been funny though if Angela just fell on the pool so voice I got a couple ideas. WanNa throw you know that. So you know. We're all friends here. So if you don't like it you can shoot me down but you know. I figured let's just have some fun with it because you know you're always looking for new stuff here palce. Palace knowing the PODCAST. Right from watchmen. Now we're back So you guys watching. What do you mean you finish? It then goes to finish. Yeah wait three days finisher motherfucker I got started.

Whatever I don't get why Jordan Belfort gone so much trouble because if I convince you to buy stock in something how's it my fault that you believe me and you did it all right? Let's move onto the first year we've had conversion before so emissions like this whole Steve Madden scheme. How much of the movie did you watch the whole thing? Okay but do you. Guys don't agree though if I trick you into paying for something is your fault. I think that's called. What were they let fraud?

All right let's get to the first optic you guys welcome back. Welcome to another edition of the NERD to podcasts cast. Now Yeah sorry. He didn't know what to say. You say me off it was going to say your whole ought to other people whether we did that already. Yeah we actually did. Do that. During the watchman review all jumping we jump in our that Clinton's we what did you say stammering Jack. I thought he said stabbed in the Jackass. I'm really no we got We got news. Yeah reach on this one. Well I mean we gotta do pocket right. Yeah yes. It's got a lot of good questions though all right fucking times Tom Telling you. That's a hit if we just do a pocket of hanging out talking first story here Gwen Tarantino Star Trek is unlikely and this is coming from Quin Tarantino himself. He said ads probably could happen but he is looking. He's weighing his options for his last movie. Yeah but he signed that. He doesn't feel pressure more about making a tenth or like Mike he doesn't want disability. Tenth is trying to say I don't know to any I mean. Is that what. You're trying to say that he's trying to say no. So what he said was a strange ways. It seems like Hollywood would be my last gets. It's pulling fucking quotes now. I have a quote great fucking poll. I like Sad place in volume. So I've kind of taken the pressure off myself to make myself herself. Oh myself to make that last big viola kind of statement Zemin. He's such a Douche. How come you didn't do it in the territorial voice the Jay Leno voice as you trying to say because he doesn't want to mess up his ten Phil while I remember he had a quote? He's got some he's so full of himself he's like I'm going to do ten films. Drop the MIC and say boom. Here's here's my ten so I put it up against anybody. The likes himself he could though and he's good at his job. Yeah now I mean. He's definitely a legend for his last film. I I always thought that if he made star trek he wouldn't direct it. He would be kind on of producers slash writer story by Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams and then other people directed but it looks like it's not even going to get that far so I never thought it was going to be as official tenth. He's he's talked about. Kill Bill Three. He said he's talking Thurman. I love the kill bills. I mean they're not my top five of his but they're great martial arts movies so yeah I'd like to back on friendly terms. I think so. Yeah they have like a Kanye Jay Z.. Relationship I never understood Tarantino in Star Trek that connection way always I felt like it just so such a left. Turn from what he's usually used to doing that. I never really thought I got what you said. Maybe he might write. Maybe he'll be involved in some way but I never really was was fully on board within actually directing it so the script he wrote he said it's poll fixing in space. That's so like would you. Would you appreciate that. Would you do that for his last film. But Not Star Trek. Don't get something else. Also you could say any scripts or any movie in space. And I'll be like heads pulp fiction like six. Underground game of thrones space in space. Right does Howard space. That's why we were just talking about making a star Fox movie. Why is that a good concept? It's in space. It's in space in space. I think that there's an untapped nineteen ninety Nintendo market for animated films for Kids Banjo. Zooey Zelda Mario Star Fox six and no one cares most. Do it right here do well but you know what on board for Sonic after that rock. It's like you know this little blue guy I he's cute. I didn't ever actually might be. I think. So too Schwartz. Like this movie does good and is GONNA be. Oh that like you just said as any a fucking influx of nineties will sign it was there was a point where sonic almost became bigger than Merrill was less marrow. Got His movie. You know the album hoskin John Leguizamo John Lewis and the Gumbo sued remember the Goumas look like Harvey aspirants for children. And I it should hop on that I mean I don't even get the concept of it out there. Can you cut this podcast and then we can take right to making movies Banjo because we you know the also I mean you the check your head Hans here thank you. Think Frank from always sunny I'm wonder if Nintendo is because antenna still doing well Sega's a whole different. We had that dog as yeah. We don't tend to go bankrupt. No I think that was Sega. Nintendo might have gone bankrupt. That's like a company thing it's like. Oh you know claim bankruptcy we. Everyone gets the dreamcast. My mom got me when I was a kid. Walking thing sucked shit. DREAMCAST dreamcast actually played one game. I played sonic terrible Sega dreamcast. It's good for the nostalgia. Recently played a couple couple years ago. I think I was in in Game Stop here today. And it had like the Sega Council. But it's like all memory. It's not like the real thing we have one of those. Do you like that concept. I'd rather there's had the game like the the real say not. That has all the Games it's kind of like the. US THEY DO. It's I never opened it but I feel like I could have fun with it if I wanted. If you do like a wall with the Super Nintendo Bundle. I like that concept wondering well Quintin. Those Star Trek is not happening. So where do you guys want. What are you guys? Want to see with him. What what would you guys like to see him do for his final? Donald Trump wanted to get like seem like horror. something a genre that he hasn't done. I WANNA minded this. This'll be nice to see starring. Yeah I was very much on board with it because I like like when directors go out of their like when what is face was Anderson said he was going going to horror movie. I was like okay. Yeah that's something I wouldn't expect from him but I could definitely see where he would take that same anything with Tarantino Star Trek. I didn't realize this will be his first franchise movie too right and this is the day and age to do it like when Edgar Wright tried to do Atman like ten years ago or however long ago it was. It wasn't the right time but now is the time where the studio seemed to be willing to work with big time directors. You hear score say oblige invited Scorsese down a little chat about his comments on Marvel. I wonder what what the hell the biggest talk about now. This man's leaving with fucking he's usually even what a contract attract. You think. So wound right now. He's not you'll never do that. It'd be cool though. I'll be like after all like this whole controversy meets of them could be. Bob Scorsese Z.. Gets one hundred million dollars direct. The three movie deal more right. Do that reset enough model like Yo. You Better Alaska brings his goons out. Yeah fi in fact. It is cool that they're opened to his goons. He's fucking making more I. I want to send jobs. We'd Interior joke. He's going to Bang your wife. I wonder if that's why you want to do it. It was like no number ten genus big movie and we call today and wait. Wait repeat that I think for his tenth maybe when he first thought about it like like impulse. I'll I'll do star trek one like that. Oh you're going back to Tarantino Blogger and Marty now soundtrack you are staying on track off track when we went off track. Okay would you rather eh Tarantino or more Scorsese Marvel Movie Marvin model moving. You call mortar guys the boys I think Tarantino. Because he's more of a fan of comics because he I always wanted to do a luke cage. Movie with Laurence Fishburne. I'd be mad. If Scorsese minute good marvel movie. I just resulted about it. Well he would right yeah. Moonlight would be the character. You give them but that Todd Phillips kind of did that for us right. I'm not morning. Scorsese vote this is Kinda how would be. Yeah let's go to his best films and the joker the joker well. It's I would love to see once upon a time Hollywood again like make it like based off that premise. Wait for his final movie. Just makes it just make it again. I've that's how much I enjoyed that movie. Yeah well He. That's the comment that he I will tell you that he could end off with that one. And it's my favorite of his. I think it's the most mature film that he's made. That's that's what I'd like to see him. Continuing this trend of you saw that Tarantino comedy similar similar tones but relying on his skills as a writer. When did you see that? Did you see then anthony with Raja. Okay go no no. Well we see so many movies. I don't remember who goes to which movie I'm sorry. So today. I love the top five film of the year. I can't watch that movie nine one. Why it's giving me like anxiety watch and I swear to God I was close growing Geez? It's depressing it's can be but it's the acting is phenomenal. No you guys are allowed to cry right. It's twenty nine. Seen Gene Fellas be tyranny. Sit In my room by myself crying. Your fieldsman cry in front of everybody else you have time. Let's not forget. I saw a convenience store footage so robbing I'll the white lie robbing him with a gun. That shot something Lincoln the nineteenth century tooling the tooling Let's move onto the next door here. We have the new trailer for top gun maverick. I Love Tom Cruise Line. I always say like Pinprick. He's the ideal man. Here's the best life he's fucking. You know what he fifty something now. I would be a better. Tom Cruise and Tom Cruise has been do you guys have you. Yeah how do you WanNa be a scientologist when being nutjob but if I was like a good looking five foot eight fit action movie star. I'm just saying I would live my life better than he has. So Nash US looking at pretty well Kinda had a rough patch there but he's on the upper right as you said. Is he still in scientology out of that very much. Go back on that comment our. Yeah I mean perfect without the scientology scooby looks not I mean it looks fun I mean. Tom Cruise. What he's been able to do? I feel like back with the mission. Impossible franchise number one. It doesn't age number two even in his old age. She's still taking it as far as he can. Where it's not fucking Rambo or terminator. It doesn't seem like it's not. It's not impossible what he's doing. Yeah were there putting actors out there who are obviously cannot perform. What we see on the screen so Tom Cruise you know one hundred percent? He's in all the way so it's looks looks great. I mean I wonder how much they actually did. I know he flies but I wonder how much you couldn't fly because I think I don't know I think something needs to be in the military to drive some of these things even listen Tom. You're not losing this years ago. You might have listened to became Looking I know I read up that Dad to fly to different countries to do some stunt because it can do here.

Well this is also for the movie. I guess yeah. Yeah so you're like this is that it's always song. This is lifestyle just showed up one reps Leo when he doing you. A Silicon Valley has been wrapping up the Ghana. Chris Evans Chris Pratt. Paul Rudd Mara loves trolling US with this. Take the most random there's an Ali would and turn them into movie stars. Get them ripped Yemen. Chris Braden rip like this. This seems like they didn't even ask him. I'm not sure that his character necessarily we had to be ripped off. You're nicer you're like a basically perfect being you know th or forgot a little chubby yet. But as he wasn't this right well fat suit this. I'm my point is that it seems like this is something he wanted to do to do on his own. He came out and he found out a year ago he was turtles right. Well Amorous I four myself like he went to marvel instead. Help me look more like a super. That's on necessarily saw me mail. You have to look read right. 'cause he's office that ready to film home. What flexible looking in the mirror? It's like character. CGI YOU'RE A puppet. Fuck dads are in though in their in their telling you in. It's a narrative started by people with that. It's yeah it's Dad. baas wrote this article. I'm afford exactly I'd be the G. Q.. Cover for DAD bots. I would not want to see that you think. Yeah because I have the ultimate. I'd want that for you but not for my own. I love that what he feeds off that. Yes you know what I think. You got so much potential. I think you haven't hit your look a little thinner even now. He hasn't looked since ninth grade. But when I think of Nash I think of like five four Oh oh fat big hair Afro. I used to be able to rest by tit on the table and put my head down. That's that's how fat I was your hair now. Can you still grow the if you let it grow of all the easiest do I don't understand why the Afro again you went bowl. Do you think I wanted to do that. I got the hair ripped out of my head like homer Simpson peak peak balderdash. Yeah now's peak for myself and in your peak for you wishing bad on that that's ever going to get worse six months and he was so depressed it was awesome. Yeah I was really the sweatpants ripped t-shirt guy from a lot. Then I have to say guys are awful Franz terrible terrible king obviously actually I don't you three in the extension of the group as well. You guys are just ruthless on each other's joking on two nights a national scene in the marriage story when Adam driver says does he wishes Scarlett Johansson with. Yeah I turned to arid and I was like you and Nash One hundred percent blue. You'll always love him even though it doesn't make sense okay. And then he comes on his reading the note. Well you don't WanNA put up with. Yeah that's a fucking STREP. Like all right hit bloggers timeout beverage. Does the picture myself shut up. Yo if you live pictures there's nonstop you'd have a body like that you use this right now. I'm not saying I wouldn't do it but I can't do it so I wouldn't do so towards woods. He went from that to that. I would be pitchers if you're at work I don't have it. I hate him and he does it but if I did it I I would do it. Yes one hundred percents. That is teddy there. Yeah that's all you need to know about. Jesus 'cause there's nothing teddy hates more than things that he likes to do when other people are doing uh-huh Photoshop though the picture like I didn't think it was I think again you know what a fucking know. Swipe left on the different failed to. Do we know this this or tinder Is He married right. Kumail yeah well anyway. I mean if there was a filter like that Ted. I'm sure you would have found it by now. Lucky girl. There's nothing else that sucks. I think we've got a lot of good questions though honestly a real quick teddy that silent Patriots Man. Not a good look again is not a good look once shame on you twice. What sucks the most? NFL NFL's come down on us and it. It sucks knowing that because if they don't it's going to be even worse the Patriots if they don't come down on 'em what what do you think like what imagine getting getting caught on the bengals. Doing worse I'd rather just forget about this whole thing. What happened what I write filming? Told me the Scout. Maybe he got like some d role for the game going on in work but the way he's headed like we'll just delete this shit. Why would you grandpa they were really doing something shady? Why would you wear like a patriots sweatshirt because they're probably like also like no way they can do this against voice? There's no way his voice tells him because he just sounds so fucking nervous like he just knows it in Boston. Hub and Hubbard. I hope so. Yeah I it never happened I hate to see it. It's I don't think it's a good look for the game and be a real shame if this affects brady and ballot check. I think bill's GonNa be a real shame. I mean you know you Never WanNa win. Always want to beat the rival. Could just say fuck patriots announce that's what I'm saying. It really is their legacy. That's the thing because the Patriots. It's the most unbelievable run in sports. I think by far because it's it's modern times the NFL has never been better players. Never been more athletic and they just dominate. They've dominated for twenty years like they. They embarrassed the NFL. But the the cheating just doesn't go away. You're not trying to win. I WANNA appreciate their greatness. Because it's it's unlike anything seen in the sport the wants stat. That always gets me is the the the fumble sat from deflate gate. It's like that. And then they fold like once like he's such a little fucking. That's the thing with Bell Jack. I think it's just part of his personality like you say why would she to winning. Yes why would you cheat the bengals because spellcheck is not Lavi shitting the bengals. I don't WanNa make any assumptions. But if they beat the Ravens in the playoffs and shutdown Lamar Jackson. You know this man was she we got. We got whacked by the fucking Ravens. Oh Yeah Yeah they just WanNa you. Don't WanNA show them all the I guess. Lamar Jackson Man. What a guy? Let's go to questions here. They better be good. This questionnaire from Kevin Myers at Kevin me nine nine six six seven. That's episode of television of all time. Yeah talk you suck on that brick it. uh-huh yeah allow it sure. I'm going to go made in America. The Sopranos Finale doesn't help me out. We have a few because that's so hard to pick like one. I think Ozzy Mandy breaking bed. as you man how do you say I'd say it doesn't Mendez. Okay whatever Wins winters. My favorite game of thrones episode. I think the chew debt -tective season one finale was phenomenal. That whole season was Twin peaks season. Two Finale was phenomenal. Has This fucking a top ten list nerdy. I'm just spitballing. Dallas season. Three episode to show you the one with UH when Steve left blue's clues. Is this goodbye argument for s for you like the greatest. I can't I can't stand and all of those see but it's I can't stand criminal minds I know but what I'm saying is what what I'm saying is quality you lawyer. It's not to the standard of like the best. TV Show is but twenty years. You can't you can put on any episode and I'm hooked from start to finish because I don't WanNa find out once stable are left. It got really bad. Can't stand dead wasn't a later ones. I have done the characters but it's like Oh this guy murdered three people like Fox while Teddy Iron. You have got to see him get suggestions. Mine is just season finale of Breaking bed just simple. That was unbelievable. Iron right is that at the title of it now. It's F. E.. It's Oh right I was GonNa say what I don I never know the title names. I just go off season five episode. Twelve yeah you like you don't like you guys are good with it. Wouldn't you say like horses over yet. Night to eat. watchmen episode six. Oh Yeah it was a great episode of Justice Assist Denny. Now just give me okay. Well we'll move on to Good question for you. Actually Jordan Hamilton at bare sand Jordan. What's up Jordan? Did y'all think El Camino will receive any Oscar. Love no no no zero John. I hope there's a time when before it came out if it was if it just completely blew me away and if it was a good movie I thought Maybe Iron Paul could get a nomination but it's to stack this year. Good movie good performance but no not on any front on off against any Oscar Niagara. This question here from Erica at Disney's my ass while look at that. Oh that's true Erica. That is true. Do you think Ben Solo gets redeemed lives or does it have to be one or the other I think the I did they tried. Yeah and last year and he kind of I felt like the ending of that movie movie was him like all right maybe thought. Nah I'm basically. Yeah he's like you know what instead of that. How about I just running and so the only I guess? Jj can come in and his original vision. I hide a bin for that to happen. So he could do that. It could be evader thing. We're at the very end as like before you die. And you're like I accept Jesus Christ but you've been a terrible storm. It didn't say that I see I did the vader trick Jetta side but at the end I felt bad about it so all. My wrongs only other goes looking at him. Like you don't belong here okay Anikin. I saw her adventure the city you sick fuck I I hope. I think he'd seized definitely. He doesn't make it out of this movie alive villains usually don't and star wars. Yeah they're lucky to make it more movie If if they redeem him I will be disappointed unless they found a good way to do it. Yeah yeah but he went so mad at the end of the last I. I loved everything about that. I love that. He's going to be unhinged buddies also in a position of power. I was hawks. GotTa try and hold his leash so no I don't think so but I do. I do think he will die. Others questionnaire from we'll Longo at W. Longo seven. Why don't you guys do much Harry Potter? Well well see I like Harry Potter. Is it worth revisited. Probably is right. Yeah Melissa. She's the Harry Potter Savant. And and I guess you you kind of you've seen the movie. Yeah okay. Dow The books read Larvae. US guys saying like it but I feel like if it was going on right now. Oh and we're in the midst like fucking fantastic beasts. Come up what does that. Yeah fantastic are not good movies if they were good. Then maybe there would be more for discussion like I can't wait to see this. The next one's coming out but there's no hope for that series. So is that putting a blemish on Harry Potter. Yeah I mean you'll never you never get to take away from what those first eight movies did. But it's part of the franchise. Now it's it's it's a part of it. It's a part of the conversation like you can't talk about star wars without bringing up the prequels they don't it doesn't take take away from what those movies did but there and you know. I'm surprised we haven't seen Harry Potter Television Harry Potter cartoons Harry Potter and other forms of medium of media via like video games or stuff like that. But there's there's nothing to talk about. I had antacid beach movies. Give us nothing. Did you have the video game when you were a kid did yeah. It was as long as we had to play the flute to put the Dog Asleep. That's my favorite level. This question here from Keith at would see one. What's your favorite South Park Episode Episode San? That's so weird that up. Because I've been binge-watching southbound it's I am obsessed with it. I mean every time I watch my favorite. Oh man that's tough on top of the head for real. I thought the I duNno fucking hilarious certain episode. Oh but like if I watch and episode like Oh. That's pretty funny. I Love Finger Bang. That's one of my favorites Allen. I did the boy then. They do the boy band and they brought that back in this season. Yeah they forget forget. What episode where they bring back the finger bang go ahead Teddy When they go to camp like the special kids camp when all the special kids they did as the looney tunes characters no? That's the one tally. Yeah Intervention Yeah. That one's funny cartman tries to play the prank on butters. And he's the robot. What then he finds out that being like Christina Aguilera whatever that's great episodes of the video? Yeah Oh oh my God. That one's great South Park. Your borders is underrated. He is is the best carry is really. Is this question here from Dylan cowgill on the anime one. When they put the Ninja Star I and they dress them up as a dog? Moved it from Dylan. Cowgill at dry dill pickle Dr dill pickle. Sorry when his ashes thinking. Where's your mind at Dr Dill Pickle Penis? Yeah when his ashes dad coming on the podcast slick let's get slick on. Would you guys be your kid slick on get slick now undermined Jack. And he'll tell us all of you watch included. I like you know I always always worried about Jack. You're always worried about Jack. Kick nashes always out. He's always out and about and he leaves us for you. Call you once a day. I talked talking multi this questionnaire from you can pizza hut at Mr underscore freeze forcing. What are your favorite superhero movies? Doesn't have to be a does right. I can make it on my two or non. Mc You my favorites Logan in the Dark Knight. Yeah True Talk Nights. Probably the best Batman begins very underrated. I feel like people want Dark Knight Rises and with Dark Knight. which is kind of ridiculous because I think Batman begins as clearly the second best movie that franchise Winter soldier guardians or another couple of my favorite. Logan like you said and diverse. Oh Yeah and game. Yeah that's the game. Logan like Yeah Dark Knight. It's a good time. Can we talk though in. War was much better than on game. Oh yeah to me. It's perfect finale. Yes let infinity wars the perfect movie. It was so great when I I witnessed it going back and watching it too. I'm like you know it's better. What am game? Yeah Oh yeah in. War keeps getting better. He's better game kind. Have lowered a little bit for me. I still love it but really infinity. Wars fought infinity war third hour and four landing on what Kinda it's so perfect but the transition when it's like bring me Thanos in Nisa boy walking through that portal. Yeah cucumber ready described with doctor. Strange third perfect name of the third act in fucking endgame. That's stupid Eh. That's that's a good thing when you watch. I recently watched the the Endgame Third Act The final battle. There's so many details that you could miss. They did a great job directing that I watched an incredible mess. And it's so well every character so well positioned all the action sequences really work. I wonder what was harder for directors I mean they can bolt answer like doing a battle the bastards directing nat- or directing the endgame battle. I think it's their bowlers. Like a horse apiece both difficult but very different because battle. The bastards is a lot of practicality and they're there on location game is got a bunch of movie stars in front of a green screen green. A lot of computer facts both difficult. Though I don't know I would say I think passwords the I'd say definitely human aspect. Yeah I'd say endgame only for the fact back that you have so many different characters needs to kind of give your give their little shine necessarily like twenty of them at least faster battle the bastards you know you have your actions xers but you focusing John Torments Ramsey and amber. I've truly all and Davos in that like sequence really China focus on. I brought that one up I mean. That's that's universally the best battle. Game of thrones right Blackwater. I think pure battle battle. The bastards might be the best battle but the I think the Blackwater is a better episode. But I think battle the bastards to me. It's it's the most impressive battle ever in any show in any movie because I don't think any battles been visceral. It's pretty realistic. Yeah so realistic. And you're so you love these characters with national. Yeah you spent so long with them and to put them through that it's like everything they've been through that battle so gruesome. It's it's Yucky. Yes the king was just like fuck it. Let's just do that. You're not going to top IT. It's taste bad. All the bastards. No yeah the king's message about that. I want to ask you a tweet. And I'm wanting to know where I can watch it What does the craziest thing ever seen? Oh that's an anime really attack on that. Yeah that's an anime. Okay yeah but that no attack on Titan is rudy title fucking Teddy. Just remove that idea from his notion feel more. I feel like to watch that vile I gotTA watch this show. Well Eunice to watch my hero zero because that's still the best superhero story being told Mc you also considered right now. It's incredible move onto the next question here from Geek News period at geeked news period. Nick wise a national on the show more will he ever get his own show.

I mean he's basically admitted like he's not showing up to the San Francisco Forty niners the niners have a problem and then we'll do over unders N._F._C. West. I probably my favorite vision the N._F._C. or A._F._C. West sucker for the West Coast and excited to dive into that and middlekauff mail bag. I said I need some you guys questions at John. Middlekauff is my instagram handle and you guys is flooded them. I got millions of questions lantern and a little later on the POD if you're new to the pot and a lot of you guys are you want to get your questions answered. Just go to my instagram direct messages wide open slide up in there and ask whatever you want so that's that's how we do on this show interact with the people but first. Let's dive into Melvin Gordon and the chargers who I guess informed the team or inform Schefter. I don't even know that he's not showing up to training camp without a new contract and if they're not gonNA pay A._M.. He demands a trade and here's the reality life's all about leverage that there was a story that I read this morning at the gym that Kawai Leonard Uncle Uncle Dennis who basically acts as his agent I mean he has an agent but that's his guy uncle. Bennis was demanding things from the Toronto Raptors that were insane. They basically said that like things that we've never heard of well. I got news for you. Coli Leonard has one one hundred percent of the leverage in the rappers have nothing. If you want to ask for the moon he asked for the moon remember when Lebron James was asking for crazy stuff and Pat Riley said no he just left. You know 'cause Lebron. James had a bunch of leverage. We see it all the time. If you <music> knock on my door right now I want to buy your house and I say no got all the left well in this case. The chargers have all the leverage because running backs in two thousand nineteen have never had more had have never had less leverage in the league. That's just a reality and Melvin. Gordon was a former first round pick. They draft him high. Do you know what here's another thing kind of bothering me. I was thinking about this this morning. In Two Thousand Fifteen when Melvin Gordon looked like a royal royal bust I mean he was terrible. He did not score a touchdown. He averaged three and a half yards per carry. He did not score a touchdown. He please started. Thirteen games played in fourteen another thing he doesn't play Sixteen Games. I didn't see the chargers saying we're GONNA. We're GONNA throw them to the wolves. No they stuck by him and then he's had a pretty solid careers become a really good player and now he wants a new contract. He's scheduled to make five point six million dollars. You play position. That's easily replaceable and they like you but I got news for you. You don't have any leverage in this situation because one like you're getting paid five and a half million dollars. What do you want ten million bucks so I'm GonNa give you a new contract? Well a couple of things. Oh you've never proven you can stay healthy. He Played Sixteen Games one time in your career first year fourteen second year thirteen last year twelve in two thousand seventeen his best season. He played all sixteen games and again. I like Melvin Gordon. He's a good player but this notes that'd like he's Zeke Elliott or some irreplaceable player Alvin Kamara saquon Barkley and again. I'd argue that most running backs are replaceable one you could who he trading them to like who is trading for Melvin Gordon. I was thinking about this this morning. Who would trade authur round? Pick for Melvin Gordon because again if you were to trade I'm not saying I would try like he's worthy of the third round pick but then I have to pay him like just trade for him. He's demanding a new contract and again like he has leverage in the sense that his leverage hurts him because if you do wanNA trade no one's training for you if I have to sign you a big contract because we've seen running back big contracts do not not work it. Just it just a fact and here's the reality in pro sports in just the main to pro sports. You could argue baseball's just as big basketball you saw I think the ratings saw a tweet that the baseball baseball all star game outright of the N._B._A.. All Star game but whatever major league baseball players if you're a good player Hell I mean Bryce Harper and Manny Machado got six hundred and thirty million dollars last off season the neither of them made the All star team so baseball's kind of weird basketball superstar players have all the leverage they have one hundred percent all the leverage they can tear their Achilles. They can tear their A._C._l.. They can have labor surgeries bad shoulders coli bad quad. No one gives a shit. Ah every team is lined up to give them maxes and do whatever they want. Take care of their uncle's fly their trainers do whatever they want. They have one hundred percent will ever know player in Pro Sports has more leverage than like the top ten superstars in basketball. They're on a different planet. Then there's the quarterbacks who had a lot of leverage to but not quite as much because the franchise tag get dicey but they got a lot and they usually work hand in hand with the team and it's a lucrative the partnership because the quarterback unlike the N._B._A.. Superstore is so much more dependent on his teammates. You can't do it alone. I would say most other people in the N._F._l.. Beside maybe twenty players you Khalil Max or Julio Jones Aaron Donald Again we could have some leverage other than that. No player does no player I would say the last player on the pecking order of even good players with leverage or running backs because we just the last big running back contract. We saw which I think we all would agree. This guy was a fantastic phenomenal looks like he got a hall of fame potential career ahead of them in Todd Gurley and I wasn't the biggest todd Gurley guy the first couple years and like the instincts for an elite guy again. I'm nitpicking but he I even came around on. That guy is a bad ass. I thought he was the M._v._p.. Of the team and he made their offense go well. He's gone. He's never we're GONNA be the same. I got news for you. The Todd Gurley experience is over now. He's GonNa play but it's never going to be the same well Melvin Gordon who is half Todd Gurley and still really good player has rushed for one thousand yards one time. He's he's a good pass catcher. He's averaged thirty three forty one fifty eight fifty hundred and eighty so I you know forty catches a year. I mean he saw pass catch ten touchdowns which is important but let's not act like he some franchise changer now. The chargers did invest a first round pick into them so you don't just want to let that guy go but the one thing you'd say is their team is pretty well equipped and like they got other guys the pay that are both as more important he just is Keenan. Allen Philip Rivers more important than Melvin Gordon and Melvin Gordon Unlike Keenan Allen is just much easier to replace so i. I don't know if I was Tom to let's go. I'd say see a week one. You'RE GONNA hold out week one. I'll call bullshit on that. I don't even know who they play with one. We'll see everybody because we're not paying you in one. We can't even trade you because no one's going to trade us anything for you who name your team in the N._F._l.. Right now they would trade a high pick. Let's say a second or third round pick and then give Melvin Gordon what he wants. Probably fifty million dollars guaranteed full say let's even go down a little bit forty doesn't exist Melvin Gordon can ask and tell Schefter all this stuff and clearly they're pissed off mad at the May and want to be taken care of they one of any leverage none okay. Let's dive into the Houston Texans and their management issues and investing in the stock market. I do it a little bit on the side. You know I'm a I'm a poor poor. Poor man's day trader later I. I'm very mad at myself. When snapchat hit about four dollars on my I should put like ten granted this thing this is just I hate snapchat my little brother who's in his late twenties only communicates through snapchat? Most of his friends texts me through snapchat like it works with the younger generation. It's now that was like less than a year ago. It's now fifteen dollars again. I can't stand the APP but I knew there was something there but when I tried to invest vessel company it's usually more based on like who runs the company or if I really believe in the company like I didn't believe in snapchat and I don't know anything about the guy that runs it but I got no problem. Investing in apple like Tim Cook knows what he's doing. I don't have enough. Enough money to buy like five stocks Amazon. It's like to grant but I would bet on Jeff bezos right like I I don't really quite understand the leadership of twitter at Jack but I use twitter and I feel it's power every day so so I've invested a decent amount of money into the stock just because I understand it's power net flicks like I read about Reed Hastings. He's clearly a high level guy but I invested in the net flicks more because clearly a lot of younger people are canceling their subscriptions and you just go on Netflix. It's pretty damn cool and it's not even that expensive so it's like I believe in that company well it. I've worked in the N._F._l.. And you hear this all the time the N._F._L.'s no different light the Dow Jones terms and all the companies that are involved in it right like you bet on companies with good management. Well who's got the best management in the N._F._l.. Bell Jack He wins every year then go around the league. Andy Reed's teams. Were always well run. Pete Carroll's teams always well run. What are those teams do consistently win? Hell even John Harbaugh even the ravens they haven't made the playoffs lately but there are pretty well run operation right and I think you can look around this in all sports. I have a front row seat here for the Golden State Warriors. They are a really well run operation action. I believe in management from the top down when it comes to pro sports no differently than fortune five hundred companies. It's all it. They all have parallel. It's all similar like at the end of the day. You're only as strong. What's the famous Emma saying like it's not necessarily about the buildings but it's the people that are in the building so true but it's really about the people making the seasons in those buildings and when you look at the N._F._l.? I would say Bella check some of an outlier but clearly caserio in Skopje Oli of played big roles over his twenty years in New England and their successful run but when you look at the best G._M.. Head coaches head coach combinations like they're all on the same page. They're pretty important unless I I worked in the front office so I'm GonNa lean for G._M.. Scouts but I got news for you and this isn't breaking news. Coaches are more important than G._M.'s but GM's are very very important because during the season and the Texans warm going with this as the Texans are not going to hire G._M.. Well I got got a massive red flag on the Texans now and I like Bill O'Brien but he's now on his third G._M.. And this third one doesn't even exist. He's got a problem of working with people again. I think he's a good coach but that organization right now as issues because as I talked about in the last podcast Chris Val wrote that Article M. Q._B. Chris Ballard in that organization. They had a streamlined operation every single person there is on the same page. I'm betting big on the colts moving forward now. Who would I mean they got Andrew Andrew Luck but I'm just saying the organization the leadership they have and just their vision like what is the Texans Vision you just better answer agree with Bill O'Brien or you're gonna get fired like maybe if they had some more harmony in the organization? They wouldn't have have a massive problem in offensive line. They did have dwayne Brown. They did have Brandon Brooks once upon a time. Those guys are no longer there. We've gone through jams every other year to problem. Here's another thing like when a player. Let's say week four breaks his arm. Let's say with the CANC- chiefs well coterie goes. We're going to need another defensive back. So each goes well. We got middlekauff and Smith on the practice squad. What do we think of them? I got these other four guys. Is this guy this guy this guy this guy on the panthers the saints the Niners and the cowboys practice squad I got them ranked one through four. We can sign one of them and bring them up or we can go this this guy and this guy that are on the street veteran free agents we could bring in for a workout and then coach read and beach go yeah. Let's let's let's bring in those guys for workout. If we don't like the way they look we'll sign this guy off. The practice. Squad is a pretty <unk> streamlined operation. There isn't much wasted time because like Bill O'Brien a lot of these coaches around the N._F._l.. Or calling place so they don't have that much time to mess with the personnel will now bill O'Brien like when that happens what does he do because I was told this by worked with Nick Sabin when he was with the Miami Dolphins. He said his biggest issue was during the season when these little issues come up when a practice squad guy gets her when a fifty three man guy gets hurt and you have to to streamline the process when you get coats saving the list of ten guys what sign one of them the personnel department had him graded and ranked he'd have to watch every one of them or want to break them all down. You don't have the time to do that. That's where the general manager really comes in during the season or if you're gonNA make a trade or whatever and right now the Texans don't have one so how when they're when the marks for errors in the N._F._l.. It's a bounce here and a bounce. Their looks static eighty percent or eighty five percent of games in the N._F._l.. Come down to a one score game in the fourth quarter like even what the Patriots this is not the N._B._A.. Like you don't just walk the championships like you still need luck every single year. You still need little little things to come through every single year. You're going to need a D. Ford offsides to make the super bowl like the N._F._l.. The margins it doesn't get any slimmer like the margins in basketball or huge the margins in baseball nine hundred of the teams don't even have a chance in in football by twenty teams in the start of the season avid fans and then even by December feels like ten teams have a chance barter small in right now. The Texans are just making wider margins because their their organizational hierarchy already has issues and they've how does use consistently for years so how can I bet against the coals and I I feel even more strongly when I see this report like bill does he wanted G._M.. He's wants everyone answer to him. Well Bill you don't have the time during the season and it's consistently why you you have some of these holes on your roster. Your Not all knowing you didn't invent football. You know everything you need help but he clearly doesn't want it and he clearly doesn't do that. Well getting along with people like it's now officially a problem and if they were on the stock market if they were on the Dow you bet on the Texans don't like their organizational streamline. It's all messed up. Here's the other thing in the N._F._l.. And I'm not even saying everyone needs to kiss Bill Bryan's feet. That's not the way it works but I don't think that he's like okay or secure. I don't even know the right vocabulary word here to have people consistently question like that. Usually how you make progress like bill. Your team has been a fringe first second round team the last four or five years. How are you going to get over the hump? You keep blaming and pointing fingers at everyone else. You're you're the Bill Bell Jack and pointing fingers. It's not even that's not even a contest but you need help. Bill Belichick has realized I need Josh mcdaniels. I I need Caserio. Andy Reid John Dorsey and breadth V._H.. I need these guys Pete Carroll. I need John Snyder like the forty niners are GonNa ever figure it out. Cow Shanahan John Lynch need each other just like Sean mcvay less need. You need your G._M.. And he this guy refuses to work with G._M.. And I liked Bill O'Brien when I worked for the Eagles Meena Buddy we drove down to penn state. Watch them practice. It was a clinic. I was like God damn. This guy's a bad ass. I was losing my hair then I wasn't quite bald and I just love bald people that are bad asses all in on Bill Brian. I've root for the guy and I don't know something's just off. Some just is because us. He's proven he can win but like to ever take that next step. I don't know I just there's something holding them back some personality quirk and this this report that he refused Abba G._M.. Just it's just a classic Bill O'Brien. Why is probably the reason I'll lose in the first round? You probably know that Marie Antoinette never said let them eat cake but here's something she did say as she was led to. The Guillotine. marie-antoinette accidentally stepped on her executioners her final. Oh words were. I'm sorry I didn't mean to do it. I'm Dana Schwartz and I'm the host of noble blood a new podcast from iheartradio and Aaron Minke each episode focuses on a single story from the life of one of history's must fascinating roads for Marie Antoinette during a final days to the Baronet lost at sea might have reappeared as Australian farm. The world is full of ill fated love affairs bad decisions and family drama but for Monir honor the personal determines fate of nations and when you're wearing a crown mistakes tend to be deadly listening subscribe at Apple podcasts or on the iheartradio APP or wherever you listen to podcasts that's okay let's dive into Robbie gold the forty niners kicker who wants no part of the franchise tag who basically said yesterday at this celebrity golf tournament moment. He's a good Golfer Bald headed guy also that he doesn't plan on showing up and he's doing it because of his family and I remember Doc rivers had a great line and it stuck with me ever since he said it he said in sports. Your talent passed out C.. J. Asked to be greater than your problems. If your problems exceed your talent you're done and it's like that basketball. It's like that football. It's like that baseball. It's like that most. You know I would say businesses <music> sports given how much money you're paying people. It's definitely true the moment you become a bigger pain in the ass the new our talent you're done. It's a pretty basic philosophy in life right and most of you guys that Roofer different teams teams. We've all seen that player. Come through and get rid of them and you feel better when he's going well. There's a couple of positions where they can make a stink and you just kind of have to deal with it. I would say the number one position is quarterback once they become good like Rothlisberger Rogers Lock Brady Wilson like some problems now most of them don't but if they did and just a pain in your ass and when I say problems I don't mean like getting arrested. I'm just saying contractually be prickly in the building whatever you just deal with it. I would say the one position beside like long snapper they can one hundred percent not be a pain in anyone's. Ask is the kick and Robbie Gold. I was texting with someone from the forty niners yesterday. He's a major pain in their ass right now. He is is about to make more money. Let let me let me bring up this text message because I I don't WanNa factually get it incorrect that here's one thing the forty niners they've obviously franchise tag him in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen if you combine his last three years of earning is less money than the franchise tag this year so he is being paid a premium and he's adamant that he wants to live in Chicago not leave Chicago the team that cut him and be with his family A._M.. Now if there's something that I don't know I asked people with the forty niners ours kid sick and they say I not that we know of so if it's kids were sick or some extenuating circumstances I would understand right if just a unique thing but it's like Bro. You're family family. You're young children. Don't get it yet. Want you to earn this cash. The forty niners have also offered multiple contract extensions like you are a kicker my man who has thirty six years old and was cut a couple years ago it had nowhere in order to go so the franchise tag which you'll love you on bell whatever people can argue about for a kicker when a guy has made no money the last three years is sixteen seventeen and eighteen do not add up to this season and you're still obituary like I'm sorry now here's the issue or the Ford in areas like we talked about Melvin Gordon. The forty niners have majority of the leverage because like hey robby we own you my man. This is not the N._B._A.. We don't get pushed around specially by kickers but if he doesn't show up you do need a kicker. So is this Guy GonNa show up week one and I think the forty niners are strictly betting on. He's GonNa show up week one again. This amount of money is more money in these made last three years and we've offered offer the money here's the thing I don't get like hey robby. You have to live in the bay area for four months. If your team's good hopefully five but like your children and definitely your wife want you to work and make this cash so unless bless your children are sick or some weird is going on that you should make public so everyone's not shitting on you like I am right now. Show up and kick the damn football through the uprights because I have zero sympathy like I do have some sympathy for Melvin Gordon. You know he's been injured. He wants to get his cash. I get where he's coming from now. I'd also say Bro. You're drafting the top fifteen. He made fifteen million dollars. They're going to pay you five million dollars this year. They didn't kick you to the curb. When you're royal bust your one they stood by like rob when when the cut Gotcha and then you went to the giants and then you're afraid no one wanted to four dollars signing a contract and then since you've proven that you're still pretty good? They've offered you boatloads of money and you say you WANNA live in Chicago. I got news for you. Life Ain't this simple and most people in most jobs hobbs even if they're good at their profession don't ever sniff this tight money and I kick pancake or five million dollars. We can argue that all day long now Robbie Goldman really good for the forty niners like sign the contract play this year. What are you GONNA do? Intentionally Miss Kicks Six because we've talked about that around here. Like what if we WANNA shows up intentionally miss kicks. We'll tell you what happened. I think Joe Staley or a player in the forty niners would legitimately kick the shit out of them in locker room and they would be I would one hundred percent have their back if they beat his ass in the locker room. Robbie goals intentionally missed kicks is just not GONNA show up while I'm going to call his bluff and I'm sure the forty niners you're not. You're gonNA pass up you. Do the math five million dollars divide by seventeen weeks. I don't know about you but that's pretty big direct deposits so so again you're going to pass a backlash. I'm going to call on that but his problems now like he is becoming a major problem for the forty niners but he has a little leverage because they do kind of need them but they're not going to cut them and they one hundred percent should not when I say cut released from the contract whatever rescind the franchise tag like no Robbie because every franchise the N._F._l.. Is A is a pro management league. The management does not get pushed around by kicks works. Sometimes it gets pushed around by quarterback or wide receiver or a pass rusher but a kicker a thirty six year old kicker is not especially an organization that is very progressive with money like they're always ahead of the curve. They're they're always willing to pay guys that play well in the uniform like four hours are not cheap but they have official Robbie gold problem and I one hundred percent on the forty niners side on this but I do think it could get kinda dicey and I don't don't really understand what Robbie Gold's endgame is in all this. My recommendation would be bro Short for four months. Kick make five million dollars. They probably are not gonNA franchise you a second time then you can go wherever you want. If you want to play for the bears stay going to play for the bears but you're doing your children and your wife and your children's children a disservice by holding out. Here's the other thing I'd do if I was the forty niners typically in a contract hold out like for the chargers. Let's say Gordon holds out three weeks and he comes back and only signed contract. They waive all the fines. I wouldn't waive one free confined for Robbie Gould so that five million dollars would immediately turn into like if I can find you find you the maximum. I don't know what that number is fifty grand whatever the number is every day. Hey you miss and then when you finally do week one. I'm giving you the invoice. Here's what Yell Buddy so when you're when your paycheck comes week one. There's going to be a large amount missing. There might be zero because we're finding the living shit out of you every day you miss you're not holding us over a barrel. That is not the way this league works from kicker standpoint so robby gold. Get ready to be fine because I would find you until the cows come home okay. Let's dive into the over under for this week the N._F._C. West a division that is near and dear to my heart my favorite one of my favorite divisions in football the forty niners Ram Seattle and the cardinals obviously the rams won back to back years. They've host two years ago. They got beat in the first round last year. You're made suitable Seattle for the first time in five years missed the last two years ago but then bounced back this year the cardinals had a one and done coach now of new coach the forty niners kind of the media darling last year. Jimmy Garoppolo goes on week three. They sucked number two overall pick kind of fascinating division. My overall macro view on this division is I think the rams come back to Earth a little bit this year. Let's start with them. They're the heavy favorites to win. You gotTa Bet two hundred dollars to win one hundred dollars hours on them win the division and they're over under ten and a half the best player on their team not named Aaron Donald Todd Gurley. He has knee tendinitis arthritis. I don't even know what but it's not good. He's never going to be the same. We have to come to grips with that. It's over four todd Gurley being an elite running back well. Is it over for them being elite offense because they weren't elite offense with Todd Gurley. He changed the game now they draft a running back in the second round or on the second day like that's a pretty big red flag. That's basically the team I say all the time. I don't judge you by what you say. Pete Carroll's Colin Kaepernick starting quarterback. He refused to sign him as backup liar. We hang our hat on the show in my life. No frauds brought so don't be a hypocrite with your words and Todd Gurley. They can say whatever they want about tug release knee. You draft a running back on the second day of the draft. You're telling me what you think of Todd Gurley that he's in trouble so they lost it on the consumer who was hit or miss but to me the biggest thing they got in Lamarcus joyner. They lost some players but to me Todd Gurley not being the same is the only thing that matters McVeigh's proven big time coach Wade Phillips Big Time Defensive Coordinator. I just think to me this might be like an eight win team this year like there's there's nothing wrong with having a down year being eight wins but I don't think they're going to be like four or five wins. They are going to be good. They're going to be competitive but the ten and a half over under I'm taking the under it's actually one of my favorite unders of the season I'm going under rams rams ten and a half and I would not bet them to win the division now the team. That's consistently been the best team this division for the last six or seven years the Seattle seahawks. They're kind of a fascinating one when I think the Seattle seahawks close my eyes I think nine or ten wins I think their culture they showed last year. They just prevail my favorite over unders in any sport last like ten years was the spurs last year. It was like forty two games like you think the spurs are going to be five hundred. They've made the playoffs for twenty straight years. Well the Spurs. Do they made the playoffs again. I think they one forty eight gangs. There's culture what what chip say cultures bigger and talent. That's bullshit. Talent plus culture is greater than anything and that's what Seattle consistently has because they cultivate it. They develop it p Carrollton elite coach Sean Schneider's in the League Russell Wilson's elite quarterback they win freaking games. They have a culture on defense that if you come across the middle they're hitting you in the teeth and they don't care about the rules the softness of football they buckle their chinstrap and they hit people freaking hard in. You're watching like who are these guys worst Kam Chancellor Richard from all those guys are gone. They got the Griffin twins they got all these new guys that aren't as good as those guys but the mindset and the standard in that organization has not change on defense they hit people in the hit people horror now from personnel like kind of in the nitty gritty in the weeds here. They did lose their third best player last year. They traded him. Frank Clark obviously Russell's their best player by Wagner's our second best player Frank Clark was third best S. player. He's gone. They signed Ziggy Ansah. They drafted. I think L. J. Collier was up the charters pick and they drafted a first round pass rusher but Frank Clark's big big hole for them so can ziggy the first round pick equil- that I don't know this one. I'm talking about winning evasion because you can get and plus three hundred to win the division. I I'm confident those Seattle is going to be good quarterback. They have the best quarterback in the division by a mile. They're the best coach in division. You know pretty well. Established is based on his resume. They have the best consistent culture in the division. Just just I think there are playoff team or at least competing to get in the playoffs. I would say my slightly. He's not even a sleeper in this division just from a value standpoint standpoint the forty niners over unders eight cow Shanahan who I think the entire league if he became a free agent tomorrow ten teams what higher I think it's pretty well established everyone in the N._f._l.. Things is a big time coach well. If you're a big time coach. You can't go three years not making the playoffs that is not how the N._F._l.. Works works you have to make he's to coach not to make the playoffs. He hasn't come close last two years well. The first year started to Europe Brian Hoyer they suck last year. Jimmy Garoppolo got hurt. We can't even judge them this year. They have a big offseason. Obviously Jimmy comes back on the A._C._l.. Seattle I've been a practice. He's good George kittle. They draft Samuels. I think Dante Pettis going to take a big step. They'd go sign Tevin Coleman. Their offense should be a lot better to me the biggest question mark on the team his defense will what do they do. They go get four who flawed player whatever but they're desperate for just a true speed pass rusher. They draft Nick Bosa so now they're front has deforest buckner WHO's a bad ass and D Ford and Nick Bosa installment Thomas. I'm not a big Home Thomas Guy but I will say being practiced. He slimmed down. He looks a little bit better. They'RE GONNA wind up front and you look at teams like Pittsburgh and Kansas City for example. Their defensive secondaries have been terrible the last couple of years so even last year but but what did both those teams do they dominated as past rushing team they were near the legally leaders in sacks so if you can sack the quarterback you can get by with should events bax now obviously got to score points on offense but if you can score points in rush the passer your team's going to be good I think for now you're going to score points and I think they're going to be a top six seven team in sacks and pressures at the end of the season again this is in theory. I'm not the biggest nichols guys hardy hurt but you draft guy. I too like I'm sorry he better be pretty. Damn good your one or else. They're getting blasted for that. Pick and I'm already kind of until on the pick to begin with but if you're just betting on him being solid to go along with defor deforest buckner because the one thing you'd say is even if you're not the big guy he's on a big time. Defensive Line like this has got a lot of good players so I just liked his team. I think there are a fringe playoff team. I think there are nine or ten when teen I'm taking the over on eight. I I think the plus you know basically five and a half to one is pretty tasty to win the division because every year you see worst to first now they weren't worse. Actually they know they. Cardinals will worse but like their type team that I could see you know win and ten games aims. I actually been thinking a lot about this. I think ten games is a lock to win this division. I think there's a chance why the the team that wins the N._F._C. West nine and seven Seattle or the forty niners in the rams right there at eight or nine wins to now I like the rams under ten and a half and I feel more comfortable date nape but if you tell me nine and seven wins division I see it and then the Arizona cardinals I think the Arizona there's a chance the Arizona cardinals are the worst team in football aw there by four by four on the side. I use the biggest underdog in the N._F._C. to win their division. The only team close to them. I think Detroit at eleven to one they are twenty. I five to one to win the N._F._C. West thinking about this the other night laying in bed. This is what I do kind of sick. I have no life that the cardinals that we know for a fact that a couple of these coaches. We're going to be a disaster in this hiring cycle like immediately know a disaster like we knew pretty early on like Vance Joseph. That ain't Workin Steve wilks. That's a problem I think it's going to be the floor but ZAC Taylor leflore. He's not going that'd be areas and cliff Kingsbury. I would say a pretty good lock one of those three after year one. We think this guy has no business being a head coach. Listen I'd get this guy was successful in in college but to think Cliff Kingsbury is GonNa come to the cardinals and have any success seems a little crazy. I also just think it's Kinda crazy to think that he's just GonNa come to the N._F._l.. And score a bunch of points he runs this spread uptempo offense. Yeah a lot of teams do now. That's not new. We see all the time. I don't know what he's necessarily bring the table that is going to work and is there a chance and again. I like Calorie. I thought he was a big time prospect because he has he does one thing really well Zach. You're throwing the football but they're chancy stinks their offensive line's atrocious atrocious their receivers Larry Fitzgerald there depending on all these young guys Christian Kirk and all the guys they drafted so they drafted like multiple slot receivers was going to say decay metcalf but they drafted Akeem Butler. I think the guy if Mile State Isabella from I don't know main or Massachusetts or one of those little schools in the northeast like these guys it'd be good. You're one especially in a division that four hours can really rush the passer. Cardinals aligned sucks the Aaron Donald could beat the cardinals offensive line one five and then Seattle has a mindset. They'RE GONNA kick the shit out of you every time they play. I think there's a chance of cardinals when like two games I think there's a chance they are royal. Well royal disaster so there's a reason they're the biggest underdog because they're the worst team in this division. So I like the forty niners over I like the rams under and again when I say under ten and a half that could be nine wins that could be ten with the hell they might go ten six and I don't think they're ten when they come back to Earth eight Seattle over eight and a half and the cardinals five ABC taking the end or worse we push. I'm just I'm betting against Kingsbury like you can't win the big twelve or there's no defense events. I just don't see in the N._F._l.. I just do not see it. Hi Everybody It's Colin Coward here host of the ever-growing heard podcast. I'm in the honesty business. You know that I don't feel I tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear we talk every day about the sports stories you have opinions on the heard podcast network. Now is a one stop shop for all sports fans listen to the heard that H. E. R. D. With Colin Coward on Apple Podcasts podcasts or on the iheartradio or wherever you listen to podcasts okay middlekauff mail bag time like I said I recorded earlier because the game plan was to go play golf. I did that but I didn't finish and so now I'm home and I need to record the middlekauff male bank so that is the game plan right now. Let's see if these middlekauff mailbag questions can load. I just saw it Russell. Westbrook has been traded for for Chris Paul Listen. I love the N._F._l.. It's better than the N._B._A.. But the N._B._A. has had a pretty incredible aussies you know Leonard Paul George Chris Paul Russell Westbrook Anthony Davis Kemba Walker. I'm sure I'm kyrie Kevin Durant. I mean think about the players that moved teams this offseason Holy Hell that's insane. I mean that'd be the equivalent of like Aaron. Rodgers Andrew Luck Russell Wilson Odell Beckham Khalil Mack and Aaron Donald. We'll move teams in the off season. Just that will never happen the N._F._l.. which is a good thing but wow what an offseason hey big fan of the podcast me to steelers fan between A._B.? Bell and big band. Who Do you believe will win the break-up and what are the metrics? Are you using determining your answer to good question well. Let's start with the steelers if the steelers make the playoffs regardless what the other to do. You're in good shape. You want like you won in your half. If Ben Plays Well Jews good Jews you told Schefter J. Washington's been really good. They've been training together. I always put stock. The steelers raft a wide receiver in the second or third round. That guy is going to be good. They drafted him two years ago. In the second round. Juju was what three years ago in the second round and he's a baller now Juju was a better college player than James Washington but he's different James Deep Threat and I think that I think he's going to be good so if if if the steelers win the division regardless what Levian and Antonio doing a vacuum they've won there have to me Levian if he just balls out and the jets are competitive like to me that was just a no win situation the Antonio One's. It's a little different if Antonio continues to ball puts Derek back in the M._v._p.. Consideration The raiders are competitive then I think he can win that scenario to me the Levian deal they offered a money Levian refused to take the franchise franchise tag like I don't necessarily know if there was any other outcome there it just kind of is what it was. You know the Antonio one was a little dicey right that was on that Mike Tomlin Rothlisberger to me that one. You're going to be able somewhat too. I guess say there's a winner and a loser but you know these situations are hard. I mean the raiders probably aren't going to be very good. I think more than more likely than not like Antonio Antonio Jose Antonio going to match his production from the last six years with raiders I I don't know I don't see it unless Derek is awesome. Derek hasn't been good last couple years hoping you can help me out of the bet. Who Do you like for more yards and T._d.'s rivers or Jimmy G.? I'm a niner fan and feel good about Jimmy but thinking about big money here. It's a good question well. I think the safest bet if you just look at it on the surface. Jimmy Garoppolo was paid played with two games in New England. He played five games in San Francisco. So that's seven then he started three games last year. That's ten games started ten games in his career and two of those he's been hurt so right now. Every five games Jimmy averages he gets hurt. Google Philip Rivers Game Lock. I'm pretty sure Philip rivers plays sixteen games basically ever sees so I think the safe bet is rivers Keenan Allen. Mike Wallace Mike Williams. Is that his name the the I'm blanking right now the dude from Clemson that makes plays. I like that guy you know Hunter Henry coming back. I sound like Stephen a Smith Melvin Gordon if he does come back I mean he's catch US fifty balls a year. I would say Philip rivers just now again. I'm Jimmy G. Homer in the sense that I think Jimmy Dis a baller but until you prove Jimmy Cheese never played he's playing games in his career started ten games in his career now granted for four years beside the one when Brady was suspended. You never going to start over Brady but still we just haven't seen him on the field he John Love the show me too. I know you get a lot of Brown's questions. I do and I don't blame you guys. If you're Cleveland browns fan you should be fired the hell up you Baker Mayfield Oto Beckham Jarvis Landry. Your team is relevant nationally. I got nope I got I loved it. I get a lot of Brown's questions. I love that I get a lot of colts questions imagine if this was an N._B._A.. podcast you think like the Minnesota Timberwolves would hit me up. I mean I get a ton of bengals questions giants questions about the N._F._l.. All your teams the giants. Maybe maybe not but most your team's shot and the browns for the first time it feels like of my adult life like anything less than the playoffs going to be let down best case scenario is for the browns the season. What is your best case scenario for the Browns A._F._C. North Champs A._F._C. title game? Just want your thoughts. I'll say this if the browns win the division if they win the A._F._C. North that is a major freaking success that would mean more than likely you win double digit games. I you've won the division for the first time and I don't. I'm not a browns guy so I don't know the exact number feels like I don't know twenty five years you would host a playoff game. Even if you were to lose in the first round I would equate it to McVeigh's first year in L._A.. They won the division. They lost in the first round of the rams. That was a raging success so to me anything. If you made the playoffs that's success to if you win the steelers wanted to Asian eleven wins and you one nine or ten and you made eight a wild card that success to but if you won the division and lose in the first round of the playoffs or win a wild card and lose in the first round to me. That's a that's a home run now. Obviously you'd love to win a playoff game and all that stuff but to me that's gravy. I mean Baker second year. You're Freddie Kitchens first year. You make the playoffs everything every playoff game you plan is gravy a playoff game for the Cleveland browns. I mean ideally you want to win the division so you can host a playoff game but winning a wildcard depending on how the division setup like imagine if you won the fifth wild guard and the fourth division. Let's say you one nine games in your the probably wouldn't be a five seed. Let's say you won ten games and you were the five seat and the steelers went eleven and they were the four seed lead. You feel pretty good about your chances especially. If let's say you split during the regular season sound like the steelers are some Juggernaut so I'm bullish on the browns though I'm apprehensive on the fact that it's just hard for me to say there are a lot playoff team. I mean Baker started twelve games. Freddie Kitchens been a head coach for Zero Games. I don't know we'll see I'm a big lions fan. In wondering given Stafford is entering his eleventh year in the League winter to the Lions are thinking about drafting and other quarterback groom the future I would say this is a pretty big year Patricia in a second year if Stafford Kinda shits the bed and they win five or six games you know we'll be coming down the homestretch Matt Stafford if they're competitive and they win eight or nine in games or compete for the playoffs. He's kind of a made guy now granted. They paid him big cash a couple years ago so he's probably it's a moot point in the sense that you're in bed with them this year and next year but I would say even next year because you're not gonna be able to cut them. You may draft a quarterback in this draft draft in the top ten that wouldn't be out of their own possibility. I'm I have a soft spot for Matt Stafford again. I have saw spot for big arm playmakers and I know he has its flaws but you know I I kind of lean on the side. Can you imagine if Matt Stafford when he was twenty. Two years old would have been drafted by Sean Payton would have been drafted by Andy Reid would have got to play for McVeigh. Kyle Shanahan House career might have changed. I mean seriously you know he was not Matt Ryan Like Matt Ryan Matt Ryan is the type player who would've succeeded for anyone. He's just slow and steady and he's going to figure it out. Matt Stafford's a little more boomer bust and he happened to go to. I said this last week headlines Playoff game in the franchise history and someone tweeted me in the nineties they won one or maybe in the last like three years like he went to the lion's. I hate to break it to you but the Detroit Lions and I'm not even trying to be an asshole or anything or just this kind of joke franchise and I don't think Matt for Matt Stafford necessarily as a joke player just like Barry Sanders wasn't a joke player. Just like Calvin Johnson wasn't a joke player but when you're part of that franchise you're just GONNA lose more new win and I. I can't put that all on Stafford I've heard rumors at the Ravens won't be running Lamar as much this year and he's made progress with his throwing. Do you believe do you believe that and how good will he have to be for them to make the playoffs while their defense isn't going to be as good their offense is gonna be dramatically better. They drafted Markey's Markey's Brown Hollywood Brown from Oklahoma. He's supposed to be healthy. They signed Mark Ingram. So you know there should be a little more explosive on offense again in theory I just I don't know I I have a hard time sitting on my couch on a Sunday morning and on the West Coast the Ravens Games typically start at ten A._M.. And Flip it on Ravens browns or Ravens jets. What's that they play the jets? You catch my drift and seeing Lamar throw for three hundred yards. I'm just talking on random games. Let alone when they play the steelers patriots whoever the good teams are they play like how many how many three hundred ask yourself this. There's your Ravens Fan closure eyes and imagine the season just ended you played sixteen games. Lamar made it out healthy. How many three hundred yard games does Lamar Jackson have on his ledger? I mean it's hard to see like less than three other. Guy Left Out Andrews the tag the tight end from from Oklahoma. He's he's really good player. They drafted is Hayden hearst on the Ravens to I mean they do have some weapons weapons like if you told me that like Derek Carr was their quarterback or something I I would be a little more bullish on their hidden hearses a Baltimore. Even I mean they got. They do have some talent on offense. I'm not going to people think I'm a hater later but hidden hurts you only thirteen ball. WHO's obviously hurt last year? I mean there's not much excuse they got multiple tight ends. They got a legit deep threat. They got a pretty sweet all kind of complete running back again. Why Sweet Mark Ingram's is a very very solid running back? He's like he's like a better version. I he's like a poor man. Sprint Gore does everything well but nothing spectacular but he's not that good you. You know what I'm saying. I Li- I like marketing room. I've always like mark. Ingram has kind of turned around his career a couple years ago Ray podcasts. You're massively underrated deserve more recognition cut. Is this my mom. You said you need some questions so here. You go which position in the N._F._l.. Has the widest gap gap between the best player in the second best player at the position actually heard I think like Russillo podcast. He did this question and they all said Aaron Donald the problem I have with Aaron. Donald is like when Fletcher Cox is pretty freaking good like Aaron Donald Hall of Famer but Fletcher Cox Hall of Famer too so I don't think the gap is that crazy obviously quarterback. You know the top three or four relatively close. The receivers are all jumbled. I mean the running back. You'd go well Todd Gurley. Shot Levian hasn't played in the year Kamara. Is it really a workhorse you know between the tackle guy but he's pretty remarkable. I mean Zeke is probably the best all around running back but if levy on solid he's pretty damn good to <hes> I'd have to tax on my pro scouting buddies about the line <hes> leuke cly Bobby Wagner pretty close. WHO's the best corner right now Ramsey? I don't know that's that's a hell of a question. I don't have a great answer for you. I would say the biggest gap in the N._F._l.. Is Between Bell Jack in the second best. Coach dairies guys is one of the top running backs coming out of last year's draft but was missed the season because he tore. What should we expect from him coming into this year? I mean obviously everyone I knew in the League loved him coming out of college. I liked him a lot. Coming out of college did have some character some red flags lags off the field but that should necessarily hurt his ability to play. If he's healthy I I would say you know depends who their quarterback is case. keenum starts half the year then you know what's his name from Ohio State Dwayne Haskins. I think redskins are just GonNa suck you know I'm a big Chris Thompson Fan. I Love Chris Thompson. If darris Guy Starts Volun- and Chris Thompson should be had I mean that's a we talked a lot about N._B._A.. Trade pieces people people should be all over traded for Chris Thompson so I'd say eight to nine hundred yards. It'd be a pretty successful quote unquote rookie year the nerds of P._F.. Have concluded that statistically the Green Bay packers had the best a line in the league last season. They just gave up the Thermo Sachs is this. Is this a flaw of Aaron Rodgers or just nerves being nerds. That's a good question is it nerd being nerds one fairness the P._f.. Guys and I don't I don't agree with their grading because I don't even know what it means like you say. Guy scored a ninety five. I get no freaking clue what that means now. If you say if you rank the players then I can follow that a little bit better off say this like Rogers like Deshaun Watson the Houston Texans I think gave up the most sacks in elite they had the you know everyone views them. As having the worst offensive line and I don't think that's necessarily not true but Shawn Watson and Kapernick he was a lot like this too when you do like three sixties in the pocket because you're going to scramble your offensive line. He doesn't really know what's going on. I remember talking to Joe Staley about this. One time about Kapernick like this was before capture nick ever knelt and became like a political figure this was just when he was a football player and you could just talk about a normally with other people and I remember interviewing talk radio show and interviewing Joe Staley and there was we were interviewing the day after a game and he'd given up a sack but it really wasn't his fault because Kapernick like did a three sixty in the pocket rogers a little less version of that. I mean he's obviously much better Kabir Nick but he does do some weird shit like 'cause he can freelance and that's you know arguably beside just when he's on in the pocket his greatest strength is scrambling and keeping plays alive and then throwing dimes outside of the pocket bolt behind the line of scrimmage. Yeah it can be hard the block you know. It's just it's not the easiest thing to do for to block for quarterback like if you're blocking for Philip rivers or Peyton Manning Tom Brady they're not gonna even drew brees. They don't move so you just take your kicks set and you just try to hold the guy neutralize them for two and a half three seconds right. If you're if you're blocking for Aaron Rodgers to Shawn Watson Russell Wilson you know Jimmy Garoppolo those dudes was like just make shit up out of nowhere like oh they you know they fly out of the pocket and it's harder to be an office lineman. It really is I'm not I guess you know taking like saying it's not every sack is the quarterbacks fault because that's not the way it is yet the breakdown the film and really kind of study it but yeah I think there is some merit to that what kind of season with Mitch Trubisky have to have to begin to flip the narrative well I. I don't really know what the narrative is on Mitch Trubisky. I think the narrative right now is he's a talented quarterback but he still pretty flawed quarterback like he's not a good player but he's not a bad player. He just a player that happens to be on a really really a good team and I think sometimes plant a really really good team like a young Russell Wilson and the young Kapernick are good examples and their teams are probably better versions of the bears because they had more offensive weapons. I mean Seattle had marshawn. Lynch was such a bad ask Doug Baldwin good player. The niners had Frank Gore crabtree Vernon Davis like they had probably more weapons Chicago though to recall one's good now Robinson's good the bears really have tight end. They're definitely more defense. I mean those teams. Were too but you know what I'm saying like. Those teams had a couple of game breakers where you know. I think it's fair to start judging midst this year and I've heard Matt Nagy Talk About on Some O._T._A.. Press conferences where he's like you know just feels like he's more comfortable in this offense as he should be a year in so I think it's just we'll see when the year ends if he could have thirty touchdowns and fifteen picks and there are eleven twelve one team like he's GonNa throw some picks but he's also GonNa make some place race. You know I mean he's a big time. I like Mr Bisky now. Do I love trubisky now but I like I'm a fan and when he was coming out of college when you kind of dove into his North Carolina tape and I did a youtube video I was dabbling youtube a couple years ago and just making a couple of videos. He was pretty accurate. quarterback in North Carolina and one of the knocks in the pros is he wasn't very accurate and if you think about the playoff game he was pretty terrible. I don't at the box score says every time drawback. I felt like he was gonNA throw a pick against the eagles but guess what when you're twenty three years old twenty four years old you've been starting for literally two years since high school one in college than one in the pros like a playoff game in the N._F._l.. Defending Champs is tough. I'm not just going to sell Mitch trubisky down the river because he struggled in the playoff game against the eagles like people struggled in playoff games against the eagles like it's not that crazy how many pieces aware of the colts from being a top three super bowl favorite what type of player would be a perfect fit to put in their system because Eric Lebron's kind of emergence. I like the two young running backs still got t y you know when you think about the defense I would just say dynamic pass rusher if they're not going to be able to just get this guy but like if you decide Khalil Mack was on their team. I'd be like Shit. They're up. They could be the one-seat right. We're had Aaron Donald or hell even like a deforest buckner. Just a dominant defensive lineman Akeem Hicks exa Fletcher Cox. Just someone you went. Oh my God that is clearly their best player on defense now. Darius Leonard is a really good player. They drafted the kid from Temple who Chris Ballard can't stop talking about but replant being rookie corners corners heart think about who you have to cover in that division while the Texans Have Hopkins. I don't know he just happens to be a top five wide receiver no big deal the I guess time zone yeah. It's not a great I was thinking like Julio Julio Antonio Titans Accord Amos the Jaguars Marquees Lee Dede Westbrook though talk people in Jacksonville. I think had a really good offseason deacon fly so yeah municipal. He's going to have to play well quite like the show as busy student myself. Is there any better system for injured reserve. Is there any way for the league to look freeing injured reserve money so teams can have more cap space in season. I know the N._H._l.. Has Lt I are long term injured reserve so where a player is dealing with an injury. They still get paid but the money is moved off the books. Would this work in the N._F._l.. Well the reality is once the season starts. I guess for trades but once the season starts like there aren't free agents available now if you're up against the cap or close to the cap you couldn't trait like if you only have three a million dollars a cap space and let's say you have a fifteen million dollar player on injured reserve. You would be able to trade for ten million dollar player so yeah. I don't hate that idea actually just thinking I'll out. I don't hate that idea at all. I actually liked that idea a lot now now thinking about it. I think that wouldn't be a bad idea so I think the PUP changed and injured reserve change right or definitely into reserve change where you can put a guy into reserve and he'd come back and when I was in the N._F._l.. Once you went on I r you were out but the injured reserve guy. I can come back but their money still counts but I like the idea. If you go on injured reserve I can move your money now. The question would be. Let's say I put let's say Khalil. Mack breaks his arm. He's going to be on injured reserved for two months once and it's we to. I don't want this to happen but I'm using him. As an example is he makes twenty million dollars so you put him on injured reserve for those two months and you get twenty million dollars freed up. Could you make a big time trait. What happens happens when Khalil Mack comes back in like November like what you over the cap because in the N._F._l.? There's a hard cap. This isn't the N._B._A.. You can't go over it so I think it would become kind of complicated. I don't know exactly what you would do. I WANNA die hard. Saint Louis Rams van and it broke my heart that they left any chance. Saint Louis ever gets a team again. Crunchy really screwed over the city but it was all about money. The only reasonable rams were losing support here was because the product had been so dreadful for years thoughts. Here's what I will say. The rams were in Saint Louis because they were stolen away from L._A.. Like I'll say this for the raiders like the Oakland. Oakland is their home so l.. A. Stolen now vegas stealing but Oakland's our home so the people of Oakland. If you're an Oakland Raider Fan Dan you have I can't blame you for being pissed off if you're a from San Diego and the San Diego chargers like that your team like Saint Louis you guys just borrow them for twenty years. I get what I don't know. How old did you are but if you were my age when they moved in ninety four you would have been like ten years old? You had been coming into your sports fandom. I get it but I think as you get older and you take a step back. You say cranky was a money grab which is true because he's a Missouri guy but like that that was l a team like the L._A.. Teams the raiders were not L._A.. Team the St Louis Rams were the Los Angeles Rams. They were Los Angeles team so I don't necessarily feel bad for you is the Saint Louis An N._f._l.. Market I don't know I think it's better for the N._F._l.. that the rams were in L._A.. And I just as an unemotional bystander standard just like this I didn't want the raiders leave 'cause impacted a lot of friends and family but I will say this taking a step back and they screwed over a lot of people that I know here were just die hard loyal supporters. They're probably better off being in Vegas better economically now. They're not better off as long as mark. Davis and his cronies run the team but they're better off financially being in Vegas. I don't even think it's arguable. Just like the rams are better off now being being in Los Angeles but I hear you I mean I'd be pissed off the two of you. I don't think you ever get a team but you did you did steal originally from Los Angeles appreciate everyone asking the questions. Enjoy the weekend toxins <music> Hi Everybody Colin Coward here host of the ever-growing heard podcast. I'm in the honesty business.

J. Gruden's attitude towards the hot see challenge chain to the point that by the next season they had getting VAT frustrated at work like your you know the owner of the team decides who's making you know who you're drafting and you just don't I could see him losing all possible he's already they're five in the morning anyways. NFL coaches are kind of have you seen the close coming out of that locker room one guy seems like it checked had to change the name of the SPA It is worth your time thing I've seen on twitter today I mean I could see him getting I don't I don't think anyone ever looked at the Rosser said this seems should be competing within that division if you look at their coaching roster earlier when this is a via Adam schefter yeah is he got six seasons I gotta be honest like you can't coach that poorly for that long of the NFL and keep your job yet jay grew to do it was he that poor of ahead Hinton's coaching staff once included Kyle Shanahan Sean mcvay and Matt Leflore Wow coach under Daniel Snyder has a an above I mean that was a pretty great staff and although McVeigh's getting a little question mark right now but you surround yourself with that type of talent I mean that type of code of team I guess I mean last year I did make this point with Diana Rossini last year with Alex but they were five and one at one bride there were that injury nuke their season they were tough defensively they hung in games else once they were all right they were feisty I mean nobody ever looked at the roster and said hey this team should absolutely be a player worked for but what we know about Dan Snyder you hitching your wagon to Jared Goff for the rest of your career to Duane Haskins you could argue that he becomes post office you're busy who's got time for all that traffic parking lugging all your mail and packages it's a real hassle that's why you need stamps dot com one of the most popular times you that why would you wanna work for that owner okay why would you want to work for that organization when you have it so good in La with a brand new stadium coming in a couple of years this isn't the first signed this is leaked out about Sean mcvay there were whispers around the browns Shaab when it became available with Sean McVeigh I I'm not really sure if Stan Kroenke might be the best owner Washington Dwayne Haskins is no longer tied to Washington precisely go ahead and tank and get somebody else yeah I mean say what you will about Daniel Snyder but he's never been shy about spending right ause of those expensive postage meters right now our listeners get a special offer that includes a four week trial plus free postage and a digital scale with that missing out on Geico for help with homeowners and renters insurance gyco makes it easy to save a bunch grace you're not sticking around addition what was peak hotseat for Jay Gruden like when you watch that video is there a peak moment last week last week where we just met with a death sentence chapin we're all like what is this coming where is this coming from just saying where there's smoke cigarettes there's fire so God's ear no one really has time to go to the ESPN radio if you missed any of the show you can listen to all three hours of the Dan lebatardshow plus our Miami only hour our best of podcast on demand in the ESPN APP. That's right exactly right he spent it on the wrong guys you can really you could see McVeigh like I know we love DC and always from that area party's just getting started happy Geigo wheat call today and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be about card me tools for small businesses stamps dot Com eliminates shifts to the post office and save your money with discounts that you can't even get at the post office stamps dot com brings all the amazing stamps dot com can handle it all with these which stamps dot com you get five cents off every first class stamp and up to forty percent priority mail not to mention it's a fraction of the cost are you worried about the cowboys after two consecutive losses the packers are four and one yet we're looking at the body language and facial expressions of Arron Rogers another good one there are questions for every team in the NFL with the exception of one and the only question we're asking about that team the Patriots is career at you're going to look better but people already saying they're saying on twitter by people I mean Ryan Russillo what they're saying is is that maybe Sean mcvay what's to come home go back to DC why would you asper the most loved and trusted sleep company use Code Stew S. T. U. AT CASPER DOT COM for special offer don't want people to actually do S. t. e. w. area and maybe perhaps the thought of going home going back to that place did they storied organization maybe there was a there was a gambling website that listed Sean mcvay as one of the favorites to get the browns the or is this the best Patriot we've ever seen how does this keep happening at what point does this stop that I was scared me who Sassy Stugatz sexy when you're Sassy this is live at our show with STU gods wasn't the same guy goes into England much better older coaching yeah how that's the now people say listen they haven't played anyone they play the steelers went better this is of the US post office right to your computer whether you're a small office sending invoices and online sellers shipping out products or even a warehouse sending thousands of packages a day he happy with them being form one when he's not the reason that they are foreign one I have this saints can they continue to do it with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback it's just a defensive genius and I think teams week to week or just shook with what they're looking at defensively have you watched Jamie Collins I watched Jamie Collins plenty when when he was in Cleveland your new house might be haunted what makes you say that the furniture is levitating on the ghost welcome home yeah that's that's rookie you know what's really scary looks terrific I'm just saying that's not the way that the face ages you don't look better as time goes on I'm just saying how anything you do like a little talk any long term commitment just go to stamps dot com click on the microphone at the top of the homepage of type into that stamps dot com coach stoop I'm pretty doc I think after watching this round of the laws of the Super Bowl I think bill belichick is just like he's just genius subscribe to the lebatardshow friends podcast network featuring South beach sessions stupidity and mystery crate please rate and subscribe new episodes are posted every week wherever you get your podcast Ah h e double hockey six you're supposed to be getting older his face looks better he looked younger yeah absolutely like out of my skin scared me now you're normal reaction there you are not normally that worked up nobody's right a super bowl contender I think he's just that's you can try you can carry that stuff over the offensive strategy that he's been involved in for what twenty five years now what is it thirty a the New York jets okay yeah I think it's a big improvement but does he like all of a sudden bring championship expectations with them right I gotta get the Discount Yup St is the I love in the NFL that fans have questions about every single team team they become a super bowl content I believe Belgium goes to any team they are their defense will make them a super bowl contender I think Tom Brady goes to anything I think their offense will make them questions brady versus like the longevity Brady's just I mean I don't know what what's happening there yeah but let me ask you question Bill Belichick all of a sudden become five hundred record no coach since he took over maybe that's interesting right there what you just read four one is there a pretty good it's bills it's just had a quarterback that I think the nation at large trust it because I think we all have the same sort of opinion about Josh Allen were surprised at its worst because I'm with Mike I believe he did something in the offseason and look I follow on Instagram it looked a little weird in the offseason I want to say anything but whatever happened is absolutely settled and he of all these td the niners three now where they for real right yet on the chiefs have they've been figured out right the Ravens are people starting to figure out Lamar Jackson if he obviously he's a great football mind as well he can he can think these things through and work work with another head coach now that that head coach has to be willing to work with him and we've seen relationships between coaches and quarterbacks go south but yeah absolutely Michael also say this the bills are pretty good football to like the bills they played the Patriots had a chance to beat the Patriots that Defense Khalil get it now how absurd they're giving up less than seven points per game I mean I think Boys Brigade Berg was healthy and they gave up three points to the steelers you say coaching but we're on two decades now people hiring coaches from that organization I think Bill Belichick goes to the New York jets and he actually decides to stick around that time I actually think Tom can I think tom is essentially his own offensive coordinator at this the head coach of the Tennessee Titans Tennessee titans play Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were you cited where my siding what do you think that rejuvenation directly into into the cheeks and vitamin boat talks a little extra time with Joe Represent cashback on dining and entertainment supercenter grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply card play Tom Brady as well as any defense has played Tom Brady and a long long time they were great and the bill should've could've won that game patriots ended up winning it sixteen to ten Josh Allen got hurt but the bills no one all the tricks of the trade right maybe you can't hand that genius over maybe it does not get passed down the trick of the trade is Brady well those are I think any other ranch Belgium coaching the titans playing against the Patriots who still have Tom Brady my assumption is if Tom Brady goes like say out to this degree we didn't see the mobility coming but nobody actually thinks Josh Allen is a good quarterback eight championship level quarterback I don't think you need much from that position point like he weighed in all of this all this is a good question do you think Tom Brady goes to the jets and they become super bowl contenders 'cause I don't I believe ballots yet goes to any there's no way you're saying is he's his own offensive coordinator but his offense continues to be his own offensive coordinator he can carry that with him and strategy and everything else like I believe your needs something in the offseason face come on this is not a response we've seen this side face works at Mike let's do that side by side last year and honestly I think Teddy Bridgewater does what he doesn't New Orleans in Buffalo we all of a sudden there's a true challenge in the division now if you put if you put out another patriots and Brady on the bills let's just once on the bills that's a super bowl team you put Alan on the Patriots with Bill Belichick what happens everything else is the same going to take you it's a rent bet lives they're both of you had Philippi francs. The gator started quarterback that his injury and I hate saying this was a blessing in disguise because the kid who came in really scooby dues real name is Scooby Doo fraud latest headlines and information tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day scooper You had an interesting experience over the weekend and I think an interesting conversation during the break I think I'm not certain we're GONNA find out right now scuba Dale what's his name is a Doobie it's line and now your sportscenter update the angels will interview Joe Madden for their vacant managerial position today Kyle lowry in the Toronto Raptors have agreed on a one year thirty one million L. A. contract extension the extension guarantees lowery two years in sixty four million on the books including the thirty three point three mill left on his expiring contract this season and you could tell right away they the offense was more competent with trask it just flowed better they have played better since and obviously they the game of the weekend they played Auburn at Swan uh-huh uh-huh I'm sorry but I'm not going to apologize you are amazing thank you the bills Tom Brady we all know that this is like the most watched game in NFL history easily I go with Bill Belichick who better to stop Tom Brady you have the AFC championship game. It is Josh Allen and Bill Belichick at home okay and this is taking on should be played on a Wednesday so we can talk about it on Thursday and then leave Mondays to the NFL or we do a quick radio show but I made the point a few weeks ago that with the Florida gators Dan it was mixed point and he's right that what happens with with Mondays we forget about college football yeah that college football crappy I love scrappy do scrap to do I love dogs that look like scrappy do in that mind wildcat though Josh Allen quarterback with Mike Bell Jack how tall I had no flabbergasting delight you happen upon genius comedy by accident that's my gift these L. Traffic I don't know if he's ready for that yet. That defense is really good it is the gators defense is really good but what I say you injury blessing in disguise Donlevatar show with the two guys on ESPN radio ESPN radio is presented by Progressive Insurance guests on the Dan Le Batard show appear via the Shell Pennzoil Performance Josh for that I'm sorry I'm not going to apologize for that is one of the most amazing sentences you've ever uttered Stugatz from the maker of trust me don't trust me and we'll have the game with a weekend visit Florida Windsor College Game Day is going to be following the gators around for Awhile PM Game Yes LSU APN right thank you that type of stuff Tom Brady went down with an Achilles the only time he got hurt his entire career and I was fist pump it in my living room at home because Jeff finally a chance to win the division I mean I'm sorry I'm not going to power for him and I was at the was it the Tennessee game where he went down I don't believe I don't remember which game it was I don't think I was Tennessee Kentucky they be Kyle tress came in amazing to me when a quarter like Lisa Franks was a capable quarterback not not great capable quarterback did what he does big can move around a little bit but the way the game changes when you're just willing to throw it down the field and I know LSU's probably GonNa pick off trask like three times but I just want to see the ball in the air for more than Scuba dubar Scooby

Last Hour Gotham Chopra has Fascinating he's got a new series out where he takes the world's best athletes from UCLA. Alex Morgan Tom Brady Lebron and he takes him to these moments of greatness, and to fascinating series on what what happens in those moments of greatness for great athletes and joy Taylor is joining me joy. How are you this morning? I'm great. I'm looking forward to that I. Like watching stuff like I. saw two. WHY The t? The trailer of Lebron tweeted it out the other day to trailer. It was a perfect movie trailer. It gave you just enough to wet your appetite, but it didn't tell you the answers to the question right so I cannot wait to talk to. GOTHAM CHOPRA A friend of mine and I love having him on my podcast. Let me start with this so every year. I do this. I'll just tell you. This I'm not a big collector of stuff. A little kid I used to collect stuff baseball cards, basketball cards, but I'm not a big collector I'm a minimalist I. Don't own a lot I. don't have an extra car. I'm just a guy. I like very little I want people memories? I'm just not a collector of stuff. I've met fascinating people who collect clocks. They collect art. There's nothing wrong with that. It's just our. Our brains are wired differently so every spring I clean out the garage and I took a big garbage bag. And you know I clean it out. I really love doing. It's therapeutic for me. I feel great. The weather's finally good I go to the garage. Clean it out, and I'm always struck by the fact. My Wife's much more of a hoarder than I am. I'm always struck by the fact. I'm not even a big consumer. I'm not a collector and I'm always thinking. What do I by such crap? Why do I hold onto stuff and I would say the national average I. Don't hold onto anything. I mean I'm not a collector. And that's called. That's called spring cleaning and most Americans do it so it. It takes me maybe two our some people. It takes two days. It's called spring cleaning. And you feel better. You feel better when it's done. It's the right thing to do. You got all these things I'm not sure how I don't want to give that picture away or that book or that third raker. That's stupid ornament I bought. But in the end Ito really need it. Yet it doesn't make you happier. Does it make your life any better? And, what we're happening in America today is. We're calling it a big summer cleaning and we're just getting rid of stuff like nicknames. The ditch just feel right and it doesn't make your life better that we call the Washington football team that or the Cleveland Baseball team that. Were just having a big summer cleaning. So take out a big garbage bag and just put that name in there and put that name in there. We've had him too long and if you're really angry about it, see a therapist. If changing nickname really workshop. There's probably some over the counter medications, but you don't really care. We care about the quarterback and the Games and the outcomes, and the Super Bowl and the parties with our friends and the beers and high five and win our team wins, and we like betting on it. We love watching it and my wife will make soup and I got friends over watching football. The nicknames don't matter so. Washington's going to change there's. And by the way. Lots of smart people struggle with change. Life's one big curveball. And those who adapt are hitting three hundred in two, thousand, twenty. Those who are not adapting, get sent to the minor leagues. Adapting is hard. I did not grow up in a traditional family. We did not go to church. We did not have the classic Sunday dinner. We didn't have this hierarchy in our family. Mom was from Europe. Dad was not a big talker. Had Very unique parents feel very lucky. But, for those people who grew up in traditional families. Changing. Some of the things were changing in two thousand. Twenty is really difficult. You go to the summer camp that your brother and your sister went to. And your sister's sister went to. I've met families like that. When I moved out. East I've met people. They'd send their kids to the same camps for thirty years the same church for forty years in the same pastor for forty years, and I had none of it, so this stuff is really easy for me to move off of. I mean how watch people you know. The nuts on twitter and social media like I don't get it, but I don't WanNa be arrogant and condescending. To people that struggle with Change Dan Snyder are really smart person. He's very smart and part of what's made him. Successful is willfulness and his strength in his foresight and pushing back critics, and that's why successful that's. Why most owners professional teams are successful. They did something people doubted, and they have a chip on their shoulder. Like most successful Americans they've been told no, and they said yes, and they fought and their resilient and. And sometimes those really successful people struggle with Change Listen Barack Obama's a lot smarter than I'll ever beat. Hillary Clinton's a lot smarter ever be. But I figured out gay marriage before, both it wasn't that long ago. That Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton much smarter than me much more successful than me much more accomplished than me were still struggling. The two men wanted to get married. Or Two. Women were in love. That was an easy one for me because I didn't grow up with tradition. My life sought had a great deal of tradition. I've tried to implement lots of it to my kids. Thanksgiving fourth of July hang out water ski. I'm trying to create traditions I never had. But for a lot of Americans who went to the same church in the same pastor in the same neighborhood I've lived in nine states I've had thirty homes. It's easy for a lot of this stuff. I'm not woke. I'm just not traditional. For A lot of people in America. This stuff is hard. But we're going to have a garbage bag and we're gonNA throw some of these nicknames in there, and they don't make our life better and they offend people. and. They offend native Americans and I. DON'T CARE if one survey says seventy percent of native Americans are okay with it well thirty percent aren't. So! Let's take a deep breath. This is a great country, and when we're all moving collectively in one direction, you can't stop us, but we're. We're fighting and arguing over stuff in the garage. The lamp. The old baseball cards. It's not important. What's important is we're moving in a direction and we're able to handle the curve ball and adapt and evolve and clean out some of the crap. That we pretend we care deeply about, and it just doesn't matter. In fact, the only people it matters to or the people that are deeply offended by it, so let's not be jerks. Let's not be rigid. Let's not hold onto something that means nothing to me. But for some people. They're marginalized unlimited. And called names in stigmas and stereotypes in hurt them, and it may only be twenty percent or thirty, four or forty four. That's a big percent. If I said tomorrow, Forty eight percent of your revenue will disappear. Oh, it's not more than half, but it's a big chunk thirty two percent of the loyalty. Your kids have for you is disappearing tomorrow. Oh I don't like that percentage so thirty two percent is a percent, no business in America. This morning wants to lose thirty two percent of their business, and that's the number I read for years in studies that are offended by that Washington, nickname, it's enough let's change it. Big Garbage bag, throw it in there. We're all good. We're all fine. I'm not here to mop. People who struggle with change I. Don't I think a lot of just how I was raised? But if you do this is GonNa be a rough year. Take a deep breath. We're changing some names. It's never. We've like sports anyway. All right. So I see this now. Here comes grumpy Colin instead of evolving adapting column. Here comes grumpy column. So. There's this big gap between what the media thinks of Cam. And what the NFL in the betting markets? They give Cam. And I saw a story this morning. Where by a nice young man, micro, says Cam Newton John in the Patriot has similarities to Randy, Moss, and no seven, okay, slow, slow, slow, slow down. The media has hailed the success. He has practice yet and Oh, by the way I'm reading this morning that we'd have no Ta's and now the preseason down to. Two Games and it may get eliminated. So Cam, Newton in New England no preseason, not as never taken a snap, go ahead and play against it improving division. That's Randy Moss Randy Moss still in his prime. Randy Moss did not have a litany of injuries. Randy Moss. His talent had been buried by the incredibly poorly run raiders. Cam Newton's not in his prime, Cam Newton's had injuries cam. Newton wasn't buried in Carolina. It was at least a reasonably well. Run Organization Randy. Moss is the greatest. Wide Receiver talent of his lifetime. Of Jerry Rice had better numbers Randy Moss the most talented received NFL. History Cam. Newton wasn't most talented. What quarterback division that was drew brees. Let's slow down but I. DO understand this. Is that the media? Like Stories Kenzo has been a good story in the media likes style. And fell executives. Don't care about style. They care about production. I'll give you a prime example. The last two years. These are kirk cousins. Numbers now kirk cousins has no style. He made he makes Pete rose look fashionable. These are the last two years of Kirk cousins. fifty-six touchdown sixteen picks eight thousand yards, sixty nine percent completion percentage one all three passer rating. Those are big boy pro bowl numbers. You can't find me an article. On, Kirk, cousins. You can't find me anybody who fights kirk cousins, who's got kirk cousins back? WHO's leading the way for Kirk? Cousins Cam Newton's never had back to back years with those numbers, not even close not even close, but cams got style. And style matters to the media much more than it matters to the NFL a prime example is the instagram accounts Cam. Newton's got almost five million people on instagram. He's very active. He's very opinionated his. He's got all these the way. He does the lettering on instagram. It's Kinda cool. Kirk cousins has like three hundred and fifty thousand people that follow him on instagram. Today Kirk cousins has a picture of a rainbow on it. So Kirk, cousins. It's painful. Kirk cousins. It's got Rabo. Everybody knew this guy gave me away ball. He's got no style. He's just really good. On Cam Newton's instagram this morning. The world's talked about cameras. All full a cam we've got. We got a little. There's no rainbow on Cam. Cams got style on his instagram this morning. Wendy. Eventually? Doing not. Doing. Good. Even look. What He. Cams dot opinions and style. Let's go back to kirk cousins instagram today. Is it rainbow? We'd be over trees. Kirk cousins. Has No style. Number, the last two years or profound. Cam Nunes beat up. There's no TA's. preseason got cut in half. There's another quarterback taken all the snaps. I don't have New England's playbook, but I would imagine it's fairly complicated because everything Bella check does complicate complicated. There's a real chance won't even start. The season may not start September. There is a massive gap between media. And Reality on Cam and I think a lot of it. Is The media style? We like narratives. We like stories. We don't like rainbows. which just were not in the rainbows all right? Good stuff coming up so over the weekend. Taking golf again, which is just you know agree. And a really getting old in front of my eyes, so there's a new is not really a new golfer, but he is the new most talked about Golfer. And I've seen his story a dozen times, and usually it just fades away into the tapestry of. Big Guy Talks a lot hits the ball far, and does it become a legend after all. That's coming up next Colin.

It's Great Avidan so Golf has a history of being very elegant and refined, very sophisticated quiet, no talking while players hit S- quiet, refined walk into a country club and there's the Guy Looks. Over his bifocals at you to see if you look the part, you're dressed, right God have collared shirts, no cell phones, which is absurd and twenty twenty that you can't use devices you know if your kids are in trouble or your boss need you. Country Clubs usually have like business people. You'd think five hours without the phone would be a little bit of a problem. Golf struggles to change, but there's a new guy now and he's been around for a couple of years. He's twenty six years old. He's never won a major never really been closed last year. He was ranked fourteenth. He's the new talking. Point of golf is not the best. Golfer not close, but he's new talking point. Bryson dish ambos his name and You know he's never been you last year. He finished fourteenth, but we have no sports and the sports we have we watched now NASCAR. Ratings are up and. And UFC numbers are up and Tom Brady and peyton manning played golf in it was through the roof and Michael Jordan's documentary set records nineteen times higher than the average documentary, and this guy is now interesting in a sport, which is mostly quiet and refined and polished and perfect and manicured, and he's none of that stuff. He's twenty six. He drinks eight protein shakes. Day has thirty strips. Strips of Bacon and thirteen egg Omelets, and we're just into it and yesterday. He won, and I think it's the classic interesting guy in a not very interesting time, and he is stealing the spotlight Jordan speed is a much better golfer, but he's quiet, not playing particularly well now in a time where we would watch golf of it was on Jordan speed has won three majors and had. Had Ten top ten finishes I think it is in majors. He's a much better golfer. Historically will go down as a much better golfer, but Jordan. SPIETH is Gulf. He's quiet and he's slender and he's refined, and he doesn't talk, and he doesn't Brag and it would just be the kind of guy that if he married your daughter. We'd all feel comfortable with that and Bryson's not that. He's twenty six looks like a powerlifter. He's cocky. He talks about analytics. They're saying he. He mashes the ball three hundred seventy yards like he just crushes the thing. and. Everybody's like wow I've seen this happen my entire life. I saw it with John Daly. I saw it with Jack Nicholas I saw it with Tiger Woods. Say It with Dustin. Johnson I see it would brooks. Koepka in a sport that is refine and Polish when you get a big testosterone guy. Who's Brash Never Forget Jack Nicholas was not loved early. He was considered sort of Moody and didn't like fans and everybody loved Arnold. Palmer Arnold Palmer. Palmer was the people. Arnold Palmer was the masses Arnold Palmer would sign your autographs. Jack Nicholas was not an arnold. Palmer put his arms around him and said Jack Lighten up people. WanNa Love You love him back and Jack Nicklaus age very well. And then there was tiger woods and Tiger Woods didn't WanNa talk to you and we'll get criticized because he wouldn't sign autographs and he put his head down after he wanted to go right. into the clubhouse and he wouldn't talk to people and somebody put their arms around tiger instead tiger. You should lighten up a little bit and everybody would like you and tigers still not totally comfortable with that, but he's kind of comfortable with it, and we like tiger more and we see him now. As kind of guy we root for. John Daly. We liked him, too, but he smoked during golf and drank a bit too much and gambled and wasn't very good with all these Paul Bunyan characters in golf and always comes down to the same thing. Can They PUTT. This weekend, Bryson. Great, at putting. You don't Win Golf tournaments, 'cause you jacket, three hundred and fifty yards John. Daly would be Jack Nicholas if that was the case. Jordan space a much better goal for than Bryson just not currently playing that well. But this sport, which is elegant and refined and the gentleman's game, and it's manicured, and it's perfect, and you can't talk and it's quiet. I mean God the Phoenix. Open would be quiet NFL tailgate. It's the rowdy part of Gulf, and it just stands out because golf's rowdy. Bryson stands out in time. There's nothing else going on, and I think he's going to be a Nice Golfer. And everybody said he's he's now doing stuff. That's just analytically so unique. It's money ball. What mashing it three seventy, then chipping on and putting at if that's moneyball, the as of never won a world series, the Yankees have twenty-seven. It still comes down in Gulf to putting one tiger and Jack you can go to Youtube and. And you go, look at the great moments in Tiger and Jack and Baltimore incredibly long hitters. We all know tiger was long. T Jack Nicholas was a monster off the tee. He he looked like a football player. Jack was Ohio State. He was ready was jacking the ball further than everybody, but if you go to Jack's championships, he was great with a wedge. He was great with his irons and he was great on the Green. That's what separates him and Tom Kite Tom Kite missed too many good putts Jack hit him, and that's what separates Phil. Mickelson, often from Tiger Tiger's ten year run. He hit a lot of eighteen foot putts. Tiger was unbelievable on the Greens. Yes he jack ball three hundred yards, but this Guy Bryson de Shambo this weekend. He was number one in putting. That's why because he doesn't win all that much. He's amazing and he has thirty-seven strips of Bacon for breakfast, and at some point I think I would have an aneurism after about six. His story is fascinating, but his golf so far. This weekend he putt. And he wan and that really that's the difference between daily in Dustin Johnson Tiger and daily and Dustin Johnson Brooks Koepka in Jack. How do you do on the Greens? But I wouldn't deny it's. Golf doesn't add a lot of fun and interesting. This guy is both. cockatoo brash young little testosterone. But. It's interesting sport that often. Is Pretty flatlined joy with the news. No heard on the news? This is the heard mine news. Take down four eggs. Five pieces of bacon toast into protein shakes start your day. Seriously, I don't get through the four eggs and five pieces of Bacon. But the toes in the protein shakes are not happening in I mean if you have a protein shake like a banana protein shakes. That is breakfast. It's. I mean that's four eight hundred calories I'm a big breakfast person. Then you are not as big. No, you're you're. You're like an and just could and can eat at noon or an can eat at six in the morning and not eat until dinner I. Don't understand how you can do that. He got to have breakfast and that's too much. Though so the NFL preseason has been shortened from. From four games to to I think we both like that. We're not big fans of how long the preseason stupid, but the NFL Lee a player reps reportedly recommended that they be eliminated entirely this year in favor of more practice. I'm Devin. mccourty an podcasts double coverage with McCoy twins that figuring out how to safely play football. This year is much more important than any preseason games. Butleigh for us as players like. We still WANNA WE STILL WANNA. Know like how's everything on a functioning working you know not. Everybody's working towards that and build on those calls and everything, but I think that's more important than whether it is four preseason games. Two preseason games, no preseason games. All of a workers way out. Album like all that stuff matters if the first phase of us being back in training camp is going well. He doesn't go well then. There's no anything so I think for me. That has been more muffled because I haven't really cared about. You know what the PRESEASON Games look why? They also said it. It does hurt obviously for players who were trying to make the team will yeah I. Yes, I would not deny that, but I let me let me push back on that again. This is a classic. We need it and I'm I watch football on Mike Now? Thing we needed as much use say so the argument is I. I need to be able to figure out who's GonNa make the team. Okay. You go ask any player I've ever had on this show. Everyone every coach. I've had on the show. How many practices before you knew this guy? stunk or this guy was good. You actually do ask that to a lot all the time and they're like oh like two practices. Your guy can't play. Guy Can so the obvious stuff jumps out to a day. Yeah, okay, then you get to the more nuanced. Where can you make any not? That I get! Let's put him in a game, but you can also join practices and the idea. If you go to NFL practice, some of it's very intense. Lot of it's not but I've never bought into this. I need four three two games to figure out who can make it. WHO CAN NOT? I don to training camps. You can spot the rookies who can play and the unsigned guys. You can Antonio Gates not drafted. It took to charge your practice reportedly. WHO's Antonio. Get you can tell who can play. If you have talent, you're going to pop. You're going to pop it. It does hurt for I think for rookies like they're not going to be able to get out there and actual game scenario, so that's going to hurt them, but we know this year's going to be a different kind of year like I. Personally am not going to judge rookies as harshly as I would and other years because they're just. This is not a traditional years, even even with practice time. It's not a traditional year, so they're not getting out there on the field. They're not in person with their coaches as much as they would. Would in a normal situation, and they don't have the preseason games to get. The player flies out to to get out there and working in high speed level game speed levels scenarios, because even though it is practice, you're in practice scrimmages. It's not the exact same thing. It's just GONNA be a different year, but they're right. Finding out how to play safely is the most important thing and for veterans for anyone who's already been in the system. They don't need the preseason games. They don't even play in the preseason games, so there's there's no value. The Rams eliminated that Ram said no more starters take snaps should be noted that made the Super Bowl Daniel. Something do it. So the bengals appraised show borough for his work during this year's virtual off season. which you said, it should be the minimum what should be doing? Offense coordinator. Brian Callahan has also been putting in work to make sure teams. Offense is catered to burroughs strengths. He said we kind of studied trends and numerous teams that are doing good things on offense. See what they're doing well, and why and if you can incorporate them you do that. We study a lot of things from lsu. Obviously, if the quarterback is comfortable, everyone is comfortable I. Like that that that part is great. It used to be in the NFL. I think they tried to get players to fit their system. Do all coaches are kind of figuring out the game? Which is, let's take some calls, concepts and movement I've never understood in the NFL and the NBA where a system takes precedence over the talent that you have at the end of the day, the talent, the best talent that you have leader of your team, the quarterback or the best player in. In the NBA, that should be what your system is I in college that works. That's fine right you're you're molding. Players are still learning the game. You can have a system in place, but even John Wooden changed his system for village abroad, of course, so that like I I. I don't push back than that. You have to pay your system to what the player that you have. You have chosen zoo. Do Gregg Popovich is great. That system doesn't work nearly as well since Tim Duncan retired. You ever notice that they get bounced in the first round now. That's why I don't think that I I. I think that Bill Is GonNa have success but I am very interested to see how things go forward without Tom Brady and I'm rooting for Cam Newton at the highest level. I still WANNA see how it goes because I. Don't think the Cam. Newton is the future of the franchise there. Anyway this this is what you should do. This is what happened with Jackson look success that you had. Rigid rigid coaches that have this system on. You have to okay the draft someone that fits into your system Jackson that doesn't fit what you do, and then you can't figure out why doesn't work. Yet, seem so obvious I mean it's never made any sense to me. So this is encouraging news for me, so the Lakers are I in the West and expect to be vying for the title in Orlando and Anthony Davis thinks the extra time off because of the shutdown was great for his team. Richardson higher because we all your arrested and we are ready to go so anything our chances hiring no excuse me going to be about just wanted more me now. Everybody kind of had a decompression of of this. Season is about who what saying more we're staying. You know what I've been blown away by in the NBA. So. We all knew this virus would be good for veterans. They have gyms in their houses. Right I've been amazed, not not shock, but really encouraged. How many of the young players in the NBA like Joel Embiid Zeon. The guy in Denver the joker. Have changed their bodies. You could almost see young guys being like a little less mature. Don't get the moment because we all knew the lebrons. The Russell Wilson's there at their garage in their in their basement. Teen! But these nineteen twenty twenty one year old guys. Have many of them have reshaped their body out without the six thousand calorie. Loss every night because of the cardio workout so I the NBA is going to be fascinating. I am I. I am amazed. How many of the young stars people are saying about Joel Embiid? It's like this is the best shape everyone in his life. It is very interesting because that was one thing that I thought would go the other way because as you. If you're a veteran, you know what you're off-season routine isn't essentially this is this went from being full season to complete drop off, and then a build up like getting your body back in shape to start a season again which veterans know. How do they know how to shut down? And then what to do badly back up to being ready for camp and veterans usually eat better. I remember I have always told the Andre Agassi story, so Andre Agassi when he was young. I I live in Vegas and Andre Agassi was best friends with the people that own the TV station. I worked out so yeah I used to see Andre Agassi time one time I was going to Taco Bell, and I was in the drive through at Taco Bell and Andre Agassi's right in front of me. He's got like nine You know just talk. Oh, belly! But. He was twenty four and you burn that stuff Andre Agassi at thirty three had a nutritionist. His Diet was all like young athletes tend to be a little bit bulletproof, and they'd just eat like crap and they you know do, but they also have a lot more access to trainers and information than ever before an. Veterans taken it upon themselves to help younger players now whereas I don't know if that was really like the culture in past years it's it's more inclusive now. Everyone's trying to help each other. You know so. They're passing on those guys and they all work with similar trainers as well to me. The biggest factor other than obviously you know the pandemic which I think. The NBA is going to do the best they can to control. As best they can is going to be a mental health aspect for the bubble, because it's going to be such a unique, weirdly high pressure situation like the team that really locks down and focuses, and obviously hopefully stays. Healthy will be I. The one success trying to be so optimistic throughout this virus. Yeah, because you and I have done now four months with no sports soccer, starting tomorrow or the next day. And I just I just with the virus, and it's you can see what's happening in America for young people. You know you again. Young people think they're bulletproof. Texas Florida. They're out at bars now. They're a symptomatic. But. It's just I. There's part of me in the back. The positive angel on one shoulder, and then I have this negative angel that sitting like are these league's going to. What happens thirty eight NBA players. Leave the bubble like that's what I'm saying it's it's going to be a lot of pressure on these guys to really lock in for nine. We it's IT'S A lot. There's a lots ask, but the team that can keep it together and make it happen. It's going to be successful. Good stuff. Joy Taylor with news. Well that's the news and thanks for stopping. Heard. About Doug Gottlieb will join us in just a couple of minutes with a variety of topics today, a Bryce into shambles, a fun story I don't see him as an all time Great Cam Newton. I don't understand the media's belief, system and Cam not as we may not have camp. It's a wildly complex system that even Brady took years and years in years to master Doug Gottlieb next to her. Be sure to catch live. Editions of the Heard Weekdays at noon Eastern. Pacific. Heights the heard with twenty twenty as crazy as it's been, you really start to appreciate the little things I know.

All you have to butcher box dot com slash hurt butcher box dot com slash butcher box dot, com slash H., E. R. D.. All right, let's go to him. He filled in on radio this morning, so we don't join him from his house. We join them from the Radio Studio in Los. Angeles my friend got lead. The Doug brought to you by Mercedes Benz the best. Thing Doug Gottlieb now joins us so I thought this morning. I said you know cams got style. Kirk cousins doesn't so kirk cousins. The last two years has unbelievably profound numbers. You can't find media person. Defense Kirk Cousins Cam Newton. A media loves him because he's got style and he's interesting and he's a story and there's narratives. He's like he's Russell Westbrook. You can't take your eyes off him, but I think the New England could end up being doug kind of a mess. Who knows if they have pre season your thoughts on the expectation from the media of CAM and the reality of it. I've heard people say you know this could Randy Moss. The Fun is back and you know this could be the best patriots team we've had like wait a second. They were sixteen ano- and. Losing the Super Bowl this is the same patriots team that we all agreed Tom Brady didn't have enough weapons. So now sudden Cam. Newton makes them a favorite in the AFC. East I think. Bill, Belichick's great coach I've seen him devise an offense. Run Jacoby set during his rookie year to beat the Houston Texans but I want you to keep in mind. He hasn't stayed healthy. The past couple of years he's had several surgeries. On the two. Most important parts of his body is shoulder and his ankle, and his foot right, and Oh, yeah by the way not going to have Ota's two preseason games. They play a first place schedule in the first month of the season there to road games in Seattle easy place to play and in Kansas. City even better I. Look generally the NFL hit rate for free agents is about thirty three percent. Go back and look at they. They all and usually overpaid one thing for the Patriots. They underpaid, but why was he available? The big question is his throwing shoulder. There are people in the NFL believes his shoulders shot now. Is he healthy enough to pass the physical probably does that mean he can start season probably. Does he know the? The offense. What does the offense look like connects you the offense? ARE THEY GONNA? Make Running Cam because the Carolina Panthers. Who Knew Cam Newton better than anybody brought in norv Turner and nor Turner's the. Guy Who likes play action dropback throwing the football. Why 'cause? They believed that was the best way to a long gate his career if the panthers knew him best and try to use him in that system. And what why would new England then turn them back into a runner? It's very confusing if he fits now. I do think that Bell Jack knows how to use his guys. mcdaniels US Tim Tebow when he was in Denver as a running quarterback, it used to be percent and I think eventually can. Newton's body is holding up. He'll get a shot, but if I'm him, I prefer to sit learn the offense and let somebody else lose those two road games in. In Seattle and Kansas City, but you're right Colin. Thirty three percent is the hit rate on free agent quarterbacks and I'd say it's probably lower on Cam. Newton not simply because of Cam Newton, but because of the shoulder his foot, the system, the schedule and lack of offseason, but the NFL preseason I. Don't get it. I think it's overstated. College guys go out and play. I watched Auburn Oregon last year play a great game well played very few penalties very few. With a bunch of nineteen year, old kids without a preseason. I mean I I. I don't buy four preseason games. Your thought on the NFL cut it in half already. Well we all know they don't need the third the fourth preseason game 'cause. A lot of stars don't play that game, so it comes down to one preseason game. Where allow the team's ones only play a drive or two? I would generally agree with you. Generally that you don't need for creasing games and this is one of the things that. Quarantine and Kovin nineteen has simply sped up. We knew preseason games were going away. We knew these scrimmages were going to become much more invoke because you can set up, you can sell specific situations free team, but what have we seen with the Patriots of perfect example where they use September as another month of preseason? Because yes, you're right. I heard you really with joy. You can tell if a guy can play right away. whether you can't play can't play, but what you don't get is to cohesion of offensive lines to cohesion of teams running new offenses of teams, integrating new pieces like a like a Cam Newton. And when you don't have that, that's when line play breaks down. That's when quarterback get hit. That's when quarterbacks get hurt. That's when you have. These weird outlier results early in the season. I do think it will hurt because you mentioned. College colleges have spring football. Spring football game, they get spring, football, practice and even college games. Most Games are pretty ugly early in the season. That's why I don't think it's a true indication of WHO's the best and who's not but I think it will hurt to cohesion if they don't have Ota's short and training camp, and you lose essentially on preseason Game David, and who very good, tight end Cleveland browns can't stay. Healthy super talented wants out in a trade. Is. And I said I think Oh, bj eventually is gonNA WANNA trade. They're just too many good players. What was your takeaway on that move? He gets an agent. He want out already your thoughts well. A shocker Jerusalem houses agent. It should be shocking that he wants out secondly. WHY WOULD CLEVELAND TRADE HIM NOW? Just you know that he's under contract for at least two more years. If not more. If they want him, they will keep him remember. They side Austin Hooper who's a much more refined pass Catcher, but my biggest takeaway is this. I like that Cleveland the Cleveland Higher Kevin's too fancy, but you also have to remember who can fans is and how they had success last year Minnesota there in on I out there in on second down and it possible. They ran on third. They have a tremendous tremendous running back room, but they also have several pass catching tight ends, and they have to not just elite level wide receivers, but two volume wide receiver OJ wants the ball all the time. And if he does it Jarvis wants it all the time. And what happened last year? Even though they were successful in Minnesota Stefan digs was tacked tech. He wanted out. They got just too many mouths to feed, and while I believe they should be more successful. The problem is that while all those guys say they WanNa win they WANNA win as long as they get the football, and there's just only one ball and Kevin. Spacey had his most success when he finally got. The call plays after like twenty years in the Vikings Organization by running the football as often as humanly possible, even where upset his two star wide receivers, and the ultimately had to trade Stefan digs I think this is the beginning of an unsettling time in Cleveland where they should win. Games 'cause they've done a good job solidifying the offensive line and picking a coach who? Who should fit with what makes Baker Mayfield successful? But somebody's going to be happy and I think that's most likely to be one of those two guys outside the numbers couple in just a couple minutes left. I'm not a Gulf expert, but Bryson Shambo is something I've seen. It's called John Daly Dustin Johnson and even tiger and Jack in a very refined sport. He's Paul Bunyan and it always be. There's always a little pushback on the guy. That's a little more alpha. Low Testosterone hits in a mile I think he's fascinating I don't see him all time. Talent like tiger, but be that as it may I was watching this weekend. I'm fascinated by him and he's pushed. A, Lotta people are getting kind of tired of his story. What do you make of him? Look you drive your show. You pause for no right. We do know that so in order for him to be an all time. Great you know I'm Tiger Woods is the greatest iron player in the history of the game and when eight foot in sixty nine, he was money so i. don't know about him being an all time. Great I, do know that is exactly what golf needs right Gimme a res. Res! Outside Tiger Woods that you want watch. It's not because there's a lack of talent. There's more talent now on the PGA tour than there's ever been ever in depth of quality young players, but give me a reason to watch and a guy that out drives by percentage, wise tiger woods at peak tiger woods when they start having to D.. Shambo, courses I'm in I'm in you. You may not be in. That's because neither of us have hit the ball, three hundred and fifty yards on average. It's a different game, but any amateur Golfer. Five Times as much to fix his driver, which he might use five times six times in around. Why because it's the ultimate mccheese Mo-, Testosterone Club and this guy can hit a long way and we. It's straight. It's pretty damn good I'm in this Shambo an all time great, but by changing or at least getting us to watch more golf. Good stuff Gottlieb the Duggar does a great job. We have on regularly and usually get a nice view of his house. Today's in the radio studio because he filled in for Dan. Patrick good senior buddy. Well good stuff. Yeah, I mean, listen I the thing about golf is. We've seen this the big hitter, the guy that's long off the tee, and generally only two of them are legends, Jack and Tiger Legends. Everybody else like Dustin. Johnson to me is fascinating I'm always fascinated by daily, and in all these guys I love the big hitters but yesterday. He was putting well, and that's why it's not he. He's never been in a major of any consequence been a force because in majors. You've got the world's best golfers as a lot of money at stake, it changes legacies and you've got to. Putt the best golfers in the world or one of those things. In Augusta or the US Open because they're draining nineteen foot putts and this weekend.

I was in Park City Utah. This is the heard wherever you may be, and however you may be listening on Iheartradio Fox sports radio and S one. You went back now. It's very humid in summer Miami. Yes. Not used to the because when we were down there for super, bowl, I really wasn't that humid yet. Actually perfect weather, it's supposed to rain the whole week that we were there eight, but yeah. Florida in the summer is different kind of heat and I used to love it because I was used to it, but when you aren't used to the humidity, it just like. Smacks you in the? Airplane in Miami in the summer as you walk out of the plane down that little tunnel to the airport, you can feel it. Yeah, you're sweating. By the time you get to the airport just unbelievable, so we hope you had a great. Weekend and this week the MLS comeback, so it's it's. We're starting to get a little bit of sports and every Monday. We do this throughout. The I used to only do this during the football season. The people liked it, and so we thought would extend it, and I'm wrong all throughout the year. Not just the football season, so it's Collin Right Colin wrong here. We go where Colin was right well Zion Williamson. The pictures are out spent the quarantine getting in unbelievable shape. The nineteen year old was responsible and I'm right on this. Because I never thought the weight, criticisms were warranted number. One kids now eat better and have better nutritionists and trainers and they've ever had secondly. Charles Barkley in a different era never got too heavy for basketball and Diane is very much Charles Barkley he's smart. He's a guy. He gets the big picture secondly. There's the old saying about baby fat when you're eighteen nineteen. You just don't eat as well as you get into the NBA and also in college. Play Thirty Games in the NBA play eighty two, so you just burn off all that wait, but more than anything Zion showing you, he is what we have predicted smart gets, it will take care of his body, and will be a top twenty player in the NBA. He joins it and he has been all of that where Colin was raw I. Don't get the Antonio Brown fascination in the NFL and now my two favorite guys Tom Brady and Russell Wilson love him. Russell Wilson's working out with him I. Just don't get it listen. He's toxic. And College football now is furnishing the NFL with about twenty to twenty five draftable wide receivers a year. The rules now being implemented you can't. It's hard to double wide receivers. I mean I'm not denying their talent, but Lord the raiders. Situation was a mass New England lasted. Briefly a Pittsburgh the last year and these are good organizations by large I. Mean Let's be honest about this. Pittsburgh's well. Ron New. England's well run. I get it but not only are people giving him another chance. It's like. Russell Wilson Tom Brady love him. I I don't think it's worth the risk. Just my opinion where Colin was right I also don't think we need an NFL preseason. It's down to two games and the NFL PA the players. Association says let's get rid of the preseason. This is been something I've been advocating for. Since I've been doing radio. There are certain things in sports we cling to, and you can't give me a reason why. The idea that pro athletes need a preseason. The La Rams two years ago, decided to not play any of their starters in the preseason. Not only did they go to the Super Bowl? Not only were they the fourth healthiest team that year. They started the year eight. No meaning it wasn't like they needed to ramp up because they were behind everybody. Started on fire. None of the good teams play their starters except for a series or two in week. Three bad optics, bad football more injuries. Get rid of it. It's about time where Colin was raw Lebron James has once again embraced JR Smith. Didn't we see him have the break-up on national TV? There's some sort of strange attraction between Lebron and JR Smith now. I will say this. He's been in a lot of big games. He said some big shots and he's a big guard. He's like you know people forget. He's not that much smaller than he's six. He's a huge guard. But he's kind not, and he's not really very detailed, and he's just not what Lebron historically likes to play with Lebron loves cagey veterans that he can rely on situationally and JR Smith is big, but good hell. He doesn't know the score a games, but there's some sort of attraction here. He's one Lebron's guys I. Just just not my answer for the Lakers I liked avery Bradley, but he left where Colin was right well, the fourth of July is of course, the anniversary, and when she went to the Golden State Warriors and I've said Katie is the most sensitive player. Of My generation, the NBA now, being sensitive doesn't mean you're a bad person, but I think. The sensitivity led to him, leaving Golden State. Which I think is horrible decision. And how did he spend the anniversary fourth of July this weekend? Firing back on twitter do his critics anonymous people who would never show their face and their opinions are mostly useless. This is Katie is. He's a very sensitive guy. Now again, then make you bad guy. In fact, you could make an argument that sensitive people have more empathy better people, but I do think that sensitivity led him to leave a gold standard organization to Brooklyn, which already fired their coach and is really unraveled over the last three to four months where Colin was raw, the Patriots signed Cam Newton I was wrong on that and. And I said it last week, but what it really signals is They're not going to go six and ten, and they're not rebooting this season, which I thought made so much sense, but if Cam Newton's on the team I think they feel much more like eight and eight nine and seven football team than a sex, ten football team, and that would of course drop them out of the top ten NFL picks and I. As smart as this organization is, it's a perfect time. You built up so much equity to just play young. Is You know you don't have to go to the playoffs? To build a culture Miami Dolphins did a great job culture last year, and we're lousy in September and October, but by going after Cam Newton it's GonNa make them more viable offensively and it doesn't feel like it's a five eleven reboot season. I I do and I have my issues with Cam but he feels much more nine and seven six and Tim. Where Colin was right well when everybody was saying, Sean McVeigh was a was the next great. Coach football I said he's not even the best offensive coach in his own division. Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan's the best young offensive coach. The last twenty years in the NFL I like Sean MC Bam Fanta Sean McVeigh Kyle Shanahan Will Ronnie Lott, perhaps the greatest player at his position all time. Former niner says Kyle Shanahan is Bill Walsh. means. They're. They're they're on the offense and the reason I think they're on the offense. Is that I think? Upset is. Kyle is our version of Bill Walsh I. Think he's one of the most innovative guys. Co football comes to also. Yeah no kyle. Shanahan is the real deal. Where Colin was wrong, even my wife is making fun of me. I'm back into golf. I was so into tiger. He changed my viewing habits. He was like the sopranos engulfed shoes like I was on a TV and then tiger laughed and Sodi and the sport just hasn't had many compelling people. But Bryson Shambo pulled me back in this weekend. He's a big hitter. He's Paul Bunyan Heats thirty-seven strips of Bacon for breakfast. There's something about him. That's fascinating I don't see him as an all time. Great, but I'm even taken golf lessons. Now I'm back into the sport. Yeah, no, it's my wife. Just joking. She's like when I met. You used to roll your eyes. Golfers you taking lesson. Yeah, I'm back in the. The Gulf and part of it is he when you give me these compelling people in Golf at pulls me back in every time and I never thought I'd be back in the Gulf I mean I watched the US. Open and masters at Emma. Sports caster. I watched the big events and I follow it I can read, but I don't really watch it outside of the in here this weekend. I'm watching goal so I'm. As my wife would attest I'm just a walking hypocrite. Where Colin was right well. The Cam Newton Situation I was wrong. He's a patriot. I just never saw it, but. The betting market is proving me right. From nine wins to nine and a half with Cam. This is a team that Brady one twelve with last year. I like Cam but I've always thought his greatness and his talent, and his value is massively overstated by the American media. I GET CAROLINA FANS. Loving Emma was the face of the franchise. He's fun. He stylish. I've always said he's Westbrook hard to take your eyes off I get that part of it, but I never thought he was a great quarterback. I've always thought he's a great athlete who can make great plays and has great moments, but the consistency is what separates Russell Wilson from average quarterbacks in the NFL or Tom Brady a breeze and the betting market Cam Newton is half a win more than Jarrett's dinner. And that even to me feels a little low but more realistic. Where Colin was wrong, I've been very critical of Joel embiid. The sixers who I think is semi committed except on instagram. But. GotTa give him credit got to admit. He's been totally focused during the quarantine even as head coach Brett. Brown has been a little shocked. There is nobody on our team that has put in more time then Joel embiid. And forget you know what he's actually done in the gym just for a minute just go to man hours and and consecutive days, and the amount of days that he is put in over the past few months. I'm proud of him. I respect him. He needed to do it. You know we. We understand the impact that he can have on our team. Surprise me. I it's very hard. The change goofball into intense guy. It's easy for intense guy to occasionally have a Margarita chill out on the beach, but for him. This was a great opportunity to be unfocused Kovic hard to be. Focused a lot of stuff and anxiety and stuff happening, but embiid has given every ounce of his time to the right stuff. Good for him where Colin was right finally when Donald Trump won the election, I said be very careful. Conservatives be very careful laughing your rivals. This now means celebrities with no history in government driven by narcissism and things. That shouldn't be running our country. Can become the leading candidates Kanye West this weekend, says I'm running for president now. He's not GonNa win. But the point being is when Donald Trump was elected. All the conservative said Yeah, and I said I said on the air. Kanye West. will now become a presidential candidate. Because people. Who are driven by popularity? That's trump's game. It's always been trump's game. That's about the brand Tania's brilliant, but it's about the brand This is now the future of American politics. About the brand, not the country. I'm not a big fan of our current White House. Nothing against music and choose, but as this the future of America celebrities. Building Brands. Not caring about. You know like the people and stuff. That's what people in government should be about us, not me. You know. By the way I actually said on the air. Laugh all you want, but this has opened the door for Kanye West and other people who are brand builders. And that's what trump is trump so brand builder? All decisions are based on the brand his base. I. Mean I maybe I should run for president. I'm not capable of I want to be president. When I was young I wanNA. Be President. I wrote like my I didn't. Speech and everything really yeah. It's just an awful job. By one, no, not at all. It's one of those jobs that even if your heart's in the right place half the country hate you. Well Yeah I mean that's that's i. think that's what happened with Obama wanted to do great things, but you're blocked by. Get in that guy and also I people like mark. Cuban who continuously is mentioned as somebody should run for president probably doesn't want to. Why would you family want to deal with? That I like Mark Cuban I, but he's also a brand builder. He's a great brand builder. Like to me, politicians should be about I think it'd be partitions. Yeah, about solving problems for the less fortunate. I don't need a ton of protection a fairly. I've got I. Think you probably unique in that space? I think I I think there's a percentage I. Don't wake up in the morning, but there's lots of people in America. Do Right Right, so that's what government should before. It's not built for me. Mostly I talked for a living, and I make enough to have peanut brittle pay taxes, and you live in this country and have to by law, so yeah you have you have. You should have an opinion about it as well but. Here we are. Twenty twenty. Coming up next Mercedes Lewis, longtime NFL veteran Gotham Chopra. Last hour is stopping by as well on a Monday.

The two thousand twenty baseball season will begin on Friday, July twenty fourth with MLB be on, Fox returning on July twenty fifth with Fox Saturday baseball. We not be more excited. Baseball is back and of course America's home for baseball this summer as always will be Fox and F S. One I'm trying to be so positive with this I'm just I've seen so many starts and restarts. It should be noted in Europe I mean Germany's on a great job there soccer league often running, and they're moving and so I mean if you if you they had the outbreak to a greater degree earlier than America did how they've handled it, you know. Europe's different you've got. Germany's run differently than Greece and Italy and it you would think they would struggle to get it kind of streamline, but they have largely done a very good job and we the United States of America are not united on how to handle Kovic, so we're still got regions that are popping in non and it's. It's hard for me to lecture anybody. They'll on cove at a I. Don't know anything about it. I tried to socially space I think it's very very hard in the summer to ask people to stay indoors and not. Not Go out especially in BG communities and warm weather state than it gets very difficult, so I'm not going to sit here and lecture. People on. Don't do this. Don't do that. It's hard. You're asking nineteen year old kids who the data says are are not going to suffer from this and say stay in your house and don't go out. Ted's kids are rebellious. They're reckless kids, getting more car, accidents, kids or reckless. That's who they are, and how the answers just wear masks when you're inside and when you're around other people. You know. I'm barely a sports caster epidemiology. Mercedes Lewis is one of my favorite guys. The Green Bay packers coming back for another year. He's joining US via the Coward Global Satellite Network Mercedes lowest former Ucla Bruin packer tight end, so let me start with this, so you got your money. You're not a crazy guy. Probably got a big bank account. You got a nice house. You could retire. You don't have to play, but you have decided to come back why? Business. Not, August. Twelve years. The playoffs times. Obvious off into that game on. Game Saw A. Really. open a high level. Mentally I still love. You won't be in. My Body Golden for mine, laws. On I'm feeling. All right, we're GONNA. Try to get back to him here. that was real choppy, obviously, says his. His body generally would go before his mind as he sharp, so we'll wait and see if Mercedes. Lewis, we can get him back, but he's been around forever, and he's decided by the way speaking of tight ends I. Do want to address this so David and who's very talented, tight end for the browns. Now he's. He struggles to stay healthy so now he's unhappy in Cleveland and not entirely healthy. That's kind of been his reputation that he just can't stay healthy and in the NFL. If you're not healthy early in your career, you're generally not going to be healthy in the prime or late of your career. It's a little bit the OJ thing. Ob Jay gets hurt. He's he's not a stocky, wide receiver, Calvin Johnson, Larry, Fitzgerald be gets hurt David Joke. Though it's interesting, because in joke, who's basically saying and I agree with him I'm not going to get any touches here I totally agree with David Joko coup. This is why I worry about Cleveland when they started stacking all star on top of all star offensively. Here's the problem Jarvis Landry Big Money Ob J.. Big Money Austin Hooper big money. What does that mean players that make big money in the NFL offensively, they want production because if. If they don't get it. They'll get ripped for being a bust or you overpaid for him. So when you pay, it's different for a draft pick. You draft a kid six round. He becomes part of your franchise. He's been he's entered it as a nobody now he's a somebody. Free agents come in, and they want the ball. Be Very careful about building offense through free agency, and they brought in a big free agent. Right Tackle Jarvis Landry no BJ and Austin Hooper, and they want mouths to feed and remember Kevin Stansky. First of Cleveland is going to be a lot better this year. They're not going to trail in twelve games like last year. They lost the Bengals last year. They're pregnant trail in six or seven games translation that GONNA run the football more. They're not going to be trailing Baker Mayfield average. Thirty three and a half throws last year per game. That's GONNA. Come down part of it is. They're going to be leading. They don't need to throw Stefanski is a run I guy who now has an offense? If you look at the old line that is going to lead, they're not gonNA. Trail in as many games and I would say Baker Mayfield's throws will go down to twenty seven a game. Not Thirty three now that may only seem like five or six throws, but when you added a tight end when you have. A new coach and a new system. He doesn't want Baker to dominate this organization. We've seen what happens when you put it on Baker's back. He's not good enough physically. He's not mature enough mentally so to me joke, who was saying and this is the danger of creating an all star team on offense through free agency David Joke who like? Where am I catches? If there's going to be twenty seven pass attempts, let's say we complete nineteen well, Jarvis and OBI J. or getting a bunch of those we're. GonNa Tell Austin Hooper's of volume tied and he's going. Get Sick so though so i. don't blame David and Joko just looking at it. He's going to listen. I got I can't stay healthy. I got about four years I gotTa make money I want pass attempts so now. Mercedes ready to go is Mercedes Lewis joining us by the phone and we appreciate that let's start with the first question. I asked you. You don't you don't need the comeback. Obviously, you have decided to come back why? What's up I'm sorry, but no problem. No. Yeah, man like stand before you know I played twelve years Jacksonville saw the playoffs a couple of times. but it's all about getting to that big game. Championship in You know I. I still had it. mentally physically I'm in the best shape, but I've ever been in. Continuing the discharge in the ads and I'm still learning and it's IT'S A. Great Opportunity, great growth to happen I just want to be a part of it. By the way you're a pro. I would imagine you're in good shape. What kind of shape are you in headed into can't Mercedes in the context of compared to last year the year before the year before, so I mean obviously this year we got hit with the Kogas situation and I'm on a pretty strict plan, and you know me and my my. Trainer sit down. After, every season and kind of. Where I WANNA be where I need to go by the time I started report for campus so I would say now more like my endurance is a lot better than it was last year I've had more time to actually get the mouse on my body as far as learning. and you know obviously the off season. You want run as much as possible, so you try to prevent soft tissue injuries or keep those down to a minimum. So you know obviously you know I'm in the weight room working, but I'm planning strong I'm strong is I'm gonNA. Be At this point in my career son about keeping my flexibility. Audis and still being able to run, so I would say mark. durrance is is at all time high right now. By the way I've never been a big fan of preseason football I. Just don't think teams need it. It's now down to two games from four. The Players Association is saying we want no games. What is your reaction to that? Or you know I'm a I'm going to bet collars, or you know how to hide is with the appreciate were feel it's up to us. No, that would be on the preseason and you take the same amount of risk barely getting paid for it right guys there trying to bust each other's head to to win jobs. Right, so obviously I'm not trying to be sensitive to the younger guys rookies. The first second year guys need to preseason roster or the bubble. Guys but when you been in the five six years and you know you're positioning on on a certain team. just feel like preschool should be optional to be honest I I totally agree by the way the rams don't play their starters during the preseason. They made a super bowl. Not doing it so I don't get it, so it's interesting so David Jokue. Very talented kid tight end says I don't WanNa play for the browns and I just said before you came on I, said this is the danger of creating all star teams on offense and free agents, because guys all want their touches, and you guys careers, your rare your plan for fifteen years
