"bill polian" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Birthday today `Capricorno season and got a pretty nice present being voted first team all pro others. MVP Speak Albert season. But Lamar wasn't a unanimous choice with three people voting Russell Wilson in Coon Hall of fame. GM Bill Polian. Of course. We all remember Polian. Salem Marsha Swisher are receiver even before he got drafted. Wanted to ask you guys. Do you have an issue. The polian not voting for the more. Yeah do and I was someone that defended Polian when he said. Hey I think the guy should switch to wide receiver rod and have a problem with that but Lamar Jackson has been the best player in football football this year. I don't think it's even up for debate And so I don't I don't I don't get it. I do I get it somewhere but I don't like it. I don't get it in any form fascist so I do have an issue with three things to comment on to support while the issue one just voting in general. Oh usually we vote for something for someone to attain something. It's aspirational not. These votes is actually a record where I saw. We're just voting on what we saw. So how can you mess that up. It's not so much all I think you can become is what you actually were. So that's one two. He lapped the field field. Russell Wilson include. He lapped the field to my historical campaign here so once again Bill Polian truly respect. What are you looking at? And the last thing I think I know what he's looking at those implicit biases de we all like where we live. And for you go into anyone's world and just start looking at okay. You know what I like me a pure pocket conventional acid. is He doing no matter. WHAT COMES I? Don't care what color it is. I know what I like. I like a guy like this. And if I can't find that we'll find the closest version Russell Wilson so for everyone who's thinking the race card. He did pick Russell Wilson so the win Rogers someone else so I just think he's stuck in his ways and he's trying to find any version as close to that. It is still playing at exceptional national level. Russell Wilson is Great Lamar next level. Yeah I think I don't have an issue with it. Because he has the right to his opinion he's obviously earned that being someone who votes for them I I I did wonder. was there a racial undertone to why he is not giving Lamar Lamar his properties and again like you mentioned. He did pick Russell Wilson but I also do believe that you're right in saying that that is the lesser of his two evils to choose from who else is he gonNA choose that we have any type of legitimacy to to maybe shield him from the criticisms assumes that are going to be levied his way after making that decision not to make him the all pro selection. So I think it clearly establishes says that he does have a biased against Lamar Jackson. For whatever reason if it's a pocket you're not a pocket passing quarterback. If you're not the quarterback back that I would have wanted you to be if you're a quarter whatever it is. He does have a bias. And I think that that's that's evident but I don't have an issue with him having his own it sounds like he's doubling well down on his hateful Lamar Jackson. I'm not saying he hates strong. Were I'm not saying. He's hates Lamar Jackson but he sounds like a hater the more you can't deny what Lamar and did this year. You can't and yes. I think he is stuck in his old traditional ways because he had peyton manning in Indianapolis Bliss Right. That's kind of how he likes his quarterbacks to to look and feel in the pocket but I I don't understand how you deny Lamar Jackson of what he he did this year. But it doesn't bother me because he's still got forty seven other votes and he still was all pro so I I certainly think peyton manning has a lot to do with his buys for your pocket. quarterbacks also think my memories right bill. Polian was a part of building the buffalo bills. Yes Jim Kelly so passer pocket pass and so what I think. Bill Polian represents and there's two other guys that work on a Siriusxm show fed. Russell appears on. And Sodas Sodas Bill Polian Russell. Wilson's very likable guy. I think these two other voters friendly with Russell Wilson but but I just think that there are. There is a group of football people that think what Lamar's doing is not sustainable and that's an bill polian biases all put Peyton manning. Jim Kelly that sustainable but what he has to do is this all pro isn't about whether you can sustain. That's it's about this year and I'm just I had the same. I have a bias against Short quarterbacks quarterbacks I've been saying it for years I grew up with Jeff George. I like a quarterback six foot four six foot three. Those are the ideal height and again. I've said on record a lot of times. Well not the hugest Russell Wilson Fan. Because he's short. But dammit he to me. Russell Wilson was the second best quarterback this year. And if I'd been vote regardless of whether I like it or not because of his height I'm GonNa give him the respect. He was the second best quarterback after. Lamar I just. It bothers me the the bill polian would be but I'm not his age and old people get really really really starts a good point but the old guard mentality. It's old garment Garland is. There's a level of stubbornness that to some degree makes me like question. Your intellect a little bit. I'm just the facts are so overwhelming in Lamar. He.

"We've talked about a little bit and him as you say trying to force this issue with the NFL players association. And he he seemingly like he came out and said, well, we need a talent sharing agreement right now or I'm gonna fold the league which seem ridiculous right at the end barely at the end of. Their first year. But the other thing is like how much how how good an idea was this. If by Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian who were the founders of the league if they ran out of cash so quickly that they had a hand over the league to this dude within like five minutes of starting if they if they blame that they said there was this payroll problem in on stuff. Do we really understand how well baked this was if you had to turn to the white Knight immediately after your league started and say, hey, you get you get control this whole thing. Just give us this much needed money net seems awfully quick to me. And I sort of wonder if there's not a lot of blame here to go around. And by the way, you mentioned the tear jerking stories that was sort of the the second year of this. Adrian Robinson, one of the players you mentioned about the hotel charges. He tweeted, I will he was a tight end with Memphis express. I woke up to twenty five hundred dollar charge bending on my account from the hotel or team stayed in a called the Bank. And Memphis team president my only option is to dispute the charges on Monday. So he's like you and your credit card. Details.

"bill polian" Discussed on 94WIP Sports Radio
"Hockey and come on by clydes of gallery place from five till seven on the radio on your phone. Okay. Google putting ninety four WIP. So Ray while you were out yesterday watching the wife. With not your wife per se, but the movie the wife right here at watching the wife, you're watching the movie the wife, the alliance of American football kicked off. And surprisingly, the verdict was that. It was pretty good. Is that right? There was a lot of social media chatter from just, you know, regular fans and people who cover football that says that it was fun. It was fast paced that they did some innovations that they liked including replay as I would like to see it. Where they have the camera upstairs, and it's actually transparent you hear them talking to each other was his foot down or not. Let's take a look let's do that. So that was kind of cool, and I think that would translate well into the into the NFL. I didn't see more than a couple of minutes of it. But the TV production from what I saw and from what people said was very well done. The fans seemed into it considering that like who are these guys. It appears from what people said they they hired solid broadcasters to do it. Uh-huh. And it will give you this is Bill Polian who is involved with this thing. His thing was the NFL is not developing quarterbacks as we should we're not building off developing offensive lineman as we should that's going to be one of the tasks of this league. So they really view it as a developmental league. So again, I know you didn't see it. And I just saw a couple of minutes of it. Could they have something here? They've tried. All this stuff so many times. Yeah. I I think it's a really good idea. I don't know how how watchable it's going to be over time. But I think the idea of having a developmental league which would serve as kind of a feeder system for the NFL makes perfect sense to me. I mean, you have. Baseball has its minor leagues. Basketball has a minor league in effect hockey has minor leagues. There really doesn't exist for football. I mean you draft kids out of college assigned free agents you bring eighty guys training camp, you keep some you cut the others. And then for a lot of guys are career ends. And they might have the ability to play in the NFL if they had a couple of years to develop well now, you're giving them a place to develop the NFL tried it with NFL Europe. And they did develop some players. I mean, there were some guys that came out of that league. And when the plane and the NFL Kurt Warner being the most obvious example, but Adam venit, Terry started an NFL Europe. I mean, these are guys that might have never had an NFL career if that league hadn't existed, and it just gave them an opportunity to spend a couple of years developing their skills. They get another chance to go to the NFL, and they make it. That's what this really is. And I think that the two guys that are really behind. It are. You mentioned Bill Polian is is one of them. And. Charles Ebersol, who's the son of dick Ebersol is the TV producer there. The guys have kinda put this thing together, but Polian has been arguing for this for a long time because he's a veteran NFL guy. General manager personnel guy who has seen a lot of players get cut at training camp and looked at him and said, you know, this kid if I could a worked with him for another two or three years I'm gonna head something because what he's got to go off and get a job now. Well, now you've got an opportunity to bring some of those guys back into the game. And I think that's a good thing. They said that eighty one percent of the players who were maybe on the roster. I know if it was in the games yesterday or on the roster. Were at one point under contract. NFL teams that doesn't mean they played in an NFL game. Right. But it means they have worn NFL helmet. They participated in practices. They played in preseason training camps and stuff. Right. And there were a couple of guys, I guess, I don't have their names, but who people recognize from lawyers this guy, you know, he was the eagles last summer, right? A couple of fairly big names me, Trent Richardson. Right. It was a top three pick and was a total bust as a running back. But okay, he's trying to you know, he's trying to come back now and Christian hackenberg. Penn State fans Steve McFadden back in studio knows them well Christian hackenberg. Who was a second round pick of the jets? Are they never even let him play in a never took a snap in a pre-season? And never took a snap in a regular season game got released. Well, guess what? I mean, he's got an opportunity. He's playing in this league. So yeah, it's it's a second chance for some of these guys to show it, they they actually have a future in pro football. So will you watch at some point probably night NFL network. I might I might. And I probably I probably will right now I need to just kind of detoxing of football for a little bit after after Super Bowl. I, and I know what's coming up. I know you're going to have the combines coming up. I know drafts going to be coming up. So I'm going to be looking at a lot of film and everything. So I'm just taking a little break right now. But the season this season is going to go through the end of April. It doesn't go on all that long. There's only eight teams. Yeah. And I think the championship game is like the final weekend in April. And and yeah, but between now, and then I'll I'll check in on it because I know I know of Poland's involved. I mean, I know what a perfectionist he is on these things. So I know this thing is going to be done. Right. It's not going to be a slipshod operation if he's involved. I liked it. It's not gimmicky right because people start leagues they they have the odd rules the XFL put the ball in the middle of field run out to get it. Although to be honest with you, I kind of like, I know you did. Hey, if we're not gonna have this one this league doesn't have kick us if we're not gonna kickoffs anymore. You know, decide who gets the ball put it the fifty yard line fastest guy. Whoever gets there first. Well, not a stupid it is. But I liked that stupid. There's no kicking tees you have to go for to all the time. Yeah. I'm okay with that. No kickoff. They would help Jake Elliott. And and there's no onsides kicks. So obviously, no kickoff. You got no onsides kick. So what they do is. They give you another. They give you a play. They give you a fourth and ten play from twenty five. And if you make if you convert it if you if you make it then you get to keep the ball. All right. So actually, let's get a call. And I'm going to run the team names by you, see if you think are any good, Dan and morals, and may have checked this out, Dan. What did you think? I thought today was pretty good. Pretty entertaining. Production value is top notch. It was almost like watching an NFL game. We saw back in eighty four the rise meteoric rise style and its alternate demise. And I'm wondering if you guys can tell me your opinion on what this new we can learn from other spring league back in eighty four the USSL. Well, what what the learn is don't let Donald Trump by team. He did kill the because the USFL. I mean, it's it's it's original the original conception of the USFL was it was going to be a spring league. And it was going to work within the parameters of of an alternative to the National Football League. And they were going to play in the spring. And then when Donald Trump bought the New Jersey generals, he said, no, no, no, we're going to go head to head with the NFL. And that of course, was fatal. I mean, they weren't going. They were not gonna knock off the NFL. So the other owners caved and that was the end of the league. But I think what what's Trump's ultimate strategy. Was he wanted to go? He didn't really think that the USFL was going to beat the NFL. But he wanted to be enough of an annoyance to them that the NFL would absorb a couple of the better franchises into the NFL is and meaning his obviously, and that was going to be his ticket to getting an NFL team. And of course, that never happened. Do you think that eventually the we'll try to compete for the best college players with the NFL or do you think developmentally? No. I think I think it's run by the NFL. Yeah. It's it's it's it's an extension of the NFL. And it's really it's really just going to be a purely developmental league for the top draft picks are still going to go to the big teams, and they're going to go to the training camps. And this will be this'll be a place where guys who don't make it guys who do get cut guys who are looking for an opportunity. This'll be an opportunity for them to go somewhere play again. Possibly give re-signed and rediscovered. So they got eight teams. Our producer daybreak Myron were discussing this earlier one of the sad. Things of sports is they really appear to be out of viable team names. Because I mean, you, you know, you don't want to be the lions Tigers of the Wildcats. Everything's been done a million times every animal pretty much is taken right with the Panthers. And the Jaguars. They ran out of cats. Right. The raptors went dinosaur. I thought that was kinda cool. I actually thought the raptors are pretty good. I like that one. I think that's a good one. But there's really know there's not a lot of animal, but got the owls for God's sakes. I think the one temple one with the owls that was pretty much the end of the animals. There's only two colleges in America that have house got it as a as a nickname rice rice the rice owls temple als. But can you think of a like a good cool animal? That's not used. Can't think of one right? So they made a ton of BULLDOGS out there million as you. Well, will do exactly I've been tracking. That is only one really good terriers, right? Yeah. Right. You had the terriers. Right. My college team. But anyway, actually, my son went to tufts there, the jumbos always thought that was cool, man. Okay. But so what they've done in recent years. Like the thing that's not really a thing. Like the Miami, Heat, which is to me, maybe the worst. Let's let's take the worst aspect of our town. Make it a singular and have it be the nickname of the team. You know, it's bad. You were not a big fan of the Minnesota wild either. No, it's not it's not a thing. It's not a now. Right now, it's an adjective, it's not a noun. So I think it team has to be an an and I also don't typically like the singular, but these are the names of the teams in this new league. Tell me tell me what you think ready. All right. Give it a one to ten with ten being you like it a lot the Atlanta legends too. Yeah. I agree. Stupid. The Memphis express. Got a little bit more. Not not great for the San Antonio commanders better. I I yeah, I'd give that one a seven at the navy down there. I mean it fits right? That's cool that I agree with you. I like this one I'll tell you like this when the Orlando Apollo's. Yeah. I kinda liked that one. Now, the space program was always down that part of the country, Orlando cocoa beach. So that fits the coach of the Orlando apologizes. No, Steve Spurrier. God bless him. Imagine. He's on the golf course by noon everyday. He's on the back nine by noon. The Birmingham iron. Now that to me is a two makes. Although that's that's a big that is a big steel producing area. The the iron is to me if you're near the iron men, maybe they go, but the iron I've done work for me, the Arizona hotshots. Yeah. I don't like that. Club. That's amazing one. Sounds like a male strip club. Hey, let's go to hotshots tonight. The Salt Lake stallions at least it's an animal if not original. No, okay. I'll give that one a six and the San Diego fleet. I kind of liked that considering the strong naval presence in San Diego. That makes some sense to me fleet a medicine of a certain sort what fleet isn't that a particular kind of medicine? This purely applies to the navy. I understand. Well, I tell you the Apollo's and the commanders are winners. The other six are losers. No, I I liked the fleet. All right. I think bright Myers with me. I think primarily like the fleet to fleet number one. All right. Let's let's get Dan in at Lincoln university. Dan, you're on with rain Glen. Yeah. Hey, guys, loved the show, and you guys down Delaware park. Appreciate you taking my call. I watched game last night the hits allowed on the quarterbacks. Of course, that's down on today. Oh my goodness. His helmet flies off. You know? And if you if you saw some of that, and, you know, hey, of course, everybody that loves the own NFL, and I'm probably one of them just loves that kind of contact loves that kind of excitement, but you know, you get to it. And you're a wonder, hey, there's only got eight teams here. But as far as the CTA. Yes, CTE issues lawsuits and so forth. There's a there's a really good reason that the NFL has, you know, instituted the rules on those types of hits the defenseless receiver all those. Walks out the other one of the court because they tried show your during the break, you know, this kid. She got hit straight on from the front. So it wasn't a dirty hit. But he got rocked. His helmet comes on kidding. Yep. Coming from the side. I mean, and it didn't come from the blindside came from his front, and he never saw common. Yeah. It's kind of on the quarterback. But I would imagine they will soon enough. It's if it's a developmental league. Find ways to protect the players better. They're going to have to do that. Because one of the other things that they're doing rules wise is they are trying to think what's the best way describing their de emphasizing offensive holding. So in other words, they're allowing. Oh, yeah. They're yeah. They're allowing offensive lineman to their they're sort of they're sort of changing the rules. They are a little bit that the offensive lineman are going to be able to hold more. And it's all in the it's all in the idea of trying to put more offense into it. They're trying to you know, fewer holding penalties. Let the offense of lineman. Hold more. Give the quarterbacks more protection will allow you figure. If you're going to do that, you're going to get some more points. And that's kind of what they're trying to do here. I somebody came by here. Gentleman came by was when you were not here..

"Oh, cool because coups where where was supposed to go. He was supposed to go on a so the Lakers. And that's where you went Mandy missed. They didn't necessarily miss because he still went where it was supposed to go. I mean, I'm happy. We got him coups is here. Here's what a former general manager said about Kaku. He's a legitimate score. That fits the modern NBA perfectly Kouzmin has the highest value the Lakers, young prospects. He's the most proven you'd said admitting that they've got that piece figured out. The other piece is this though, and the GM continued to say this the consistency of his three point shooting and defense must improve kouzmines. Not a good defender, but he's not as much of a liability as Brandon Ingram. So say former general manager told Bleacher report this former general manager former. Yeah. So he's on the street meeting miss. Miss always Bill Polian components of former. So it just because you don't mean that you were an idiot. I think what it means. A former here's what I would say Bill Polian is go put his name to it though. True. The difference. The difference. Bill is going to say x general manager nine time executive of the year. Bill polian. Right. This particular person. And that's fine is Bleacher reports reporting it she put his name to just inform executive. If you don't need a former generally. You don't need to be a former general manager to do know what he just said. And that is if you've watched the Lakers even intermittently, you know that Kyle kouzmines the best young player. They have. He's the best before he. Yes. Yes. For sure if you watch the Lakers, even intermittently, you know that Brandon Ingram is very frustrating. Even if you just because there was not a better example of Brandon Ingram, then Saturday night against the rockets wherever three three quarters and change. It was like weird is he especially when Lonzo went down. You're like, dude, let's go. And then all of a sudden something clicked something got him to fully engage because for most of the fourth quarter in the entire order. He couldn't miss. I mean, he was tearing people up, right? And my question is even with all that even would him doing all that he looked like a hot dog to me. He looked like he was forced in his self to to hit those shots to take those shots. You know, he's dribbling all the way down to the last few seconds. He sitting there. Like, he's on the playground somewhere. In other news is all in a corner. They waiting agree. Right. And he's still hot dog. I mean, look I'm happy hitter shots. He hit them. You know, we needed the offense. He's frustrating. Because key and Travis there a moment's like in overtime, which you like on. All. Yeah. See we got this right here. We bought the eat now. But sometimes it's famine long stretches long stretches his famine. Yes, Rosh you guys you guys talking about camello and he's played on a number of team. And you know, got me to thinking about..

"And so you take a guy with incredible talent and your coach him up and and you make them into a a a real weapon. Now he's going to have some some ups and downs. He had some ups and downs in that fall came Denver price. Shoulda wanted actually case keenum it's it's too wide receiver in Mary. Mary in stride, but bottom line, if Trubisky had the opportunity to sit for year, he would have been a heck of a lot better. He's got Nagy to work with him. I think he'll improve willy willy beat the same guys. Patrick Mahomes I don't think God made to those in one year, but we'll see, but he's gonna get better Bill right here with Steven. A. on ESPN radio ESPN news real quick Bill before I let you get on outta here, put in the work. I've put in a few words what the hell is going on in Pittsburgh. I mean, the offense doesn't appear to be on the same page. Got a quarterback mitigates much to secondary is a problem yet. Again, they're about to go against Atlanta, at least Atlanta has the excuse of a plethora of injuries decimating them on the defensive side of the ball. But with the Pittsburgh Steelers, I, you know, to me, this is on the line. They don't win this game against it. Lanta this week in this season is over what the hell has been going on with Pittsburgh real quick. No lady bell on offense, although they're still doing pretty well. They're scoring enough to win. The defense keeps getting worse by the minute. It's it was bad. Last year was bad in Foxborough the previous year, it was abysmal against Jacksonville last year now granted, no Shays ear and he's not been replaced, and that's, that's you lose a cog like that. It's very difficult to replace him. But the the answer is defense. The polling. Always appreciate you buddy. Thank you so much. What you enjoy this week in the football week? Five of the National Football League season, which gained by the way, are you looking forward to most more than any other game this weekend? Yes, Denver at the jets, I'm looking forward to that.

"Well, pensively I agree changes everything because he now takes the double coverage off gronk and and he can do things after the catch, which really adds to the production and allows Brady to throw does check downs when people play deep. The Sony Michelle is a is a good addition. If if Leonard had been there last night, he would not have had those big breakout runs on the outside zone. That said, he's a good player and he's gonna have. He's gonna have a lot of success. So offensively I think they're probably about as good as they were last year assuming that adamant and gronk can stay healthy on the defensive side of the ball, totally different story. The coverage of practice squad receivers on the colts was unacceptable guys running open left and right titans open left, and right and Andrew, of course, back and better than ever delivering laser strike sued them so that that's by built ballot check standards. Absolutely unacceptable. But the the good news is that Bill will coach them up and they'll be better, but the lack of time. Silence in that in that in the back end is pretty clear before before I'm from the subject of the New England, Indianapolis, you keep talking about Andrew luck back better than ever just a couple of weeks ago we saw Jacoby. Kobe set, throw a hail Mary. Okay. And you have people questioned whether or not Andrew Lux on issues and shoulder issues had been completely resolved. And I do the ball home or sixty times last night for crying out loud so that clearly and last week he threw the ball damn near as much as well. So that doesn't appear to be an issue, but I wanted to know what you were making of it and based on what you're seeing, is there any reason to question the health of Andrew luck moving forward? None whatsoever. I was in the locker room after the opening game against Cincinnati, talked with them listening to his conversation with Chris Ballard. He was upset that they didn't win it was they had a chance to win at the end, but for fumble. But he was ecstatic about how he came out of the game and how he felt he's built on that ever since. There was a broadcast the game in Philadelphia where the hell Mary took place. It had to be like almost a seventy yard pass. The ball was slippery and wet. Clearly you're not going to risk him in that kind of situation. He threw the ball fine that day and he's thrown owner sixty passes the last two weeks and this week on a short week which by the way we've talked about this a lot that's criminal, but it's here to stay bottom line. There's nothing wrong with it. They'll it right here was Steven a. ESPN radio ESPN is by the way, brought up Andrew. Look through fifty. Three passes the first game against this natty sixty two last week against Houston. Fifty nine passes last night. So if these guys showed the issues, I don't know how you can do that too. Let's let's leave it at that. I got a transition because I got to talk about the New York Giants Bill Polian. I really, really am interested in knowing what you see. So many people are pointing the finger at ally manning, they're saying, he's lost it. It's over. He just doesn't have it anymore. On the other hand, you're looking at that offensive line. It's no protection whatsoever. I think it's a strong combination of both.

"The number to call is always triple eight. Say ESPN. It's inundate seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six, always a great honor to have my next guest on the line. He's a hall of fame executive, obviously, the form executive in Indianapolis as well. Primarily there. Of course, he's an NFL analyst extraordinaire for ESPN the one and only Bill Polian is on the line with yours, truly what's going on Bill? Good afternoon. How are you sir? How's everything? Fine. Steven, great. To hear your voice. Good toy, always good to talk to you. Let's get right to it. You former team Indianapolis Colts lost the game on Thursday night football to Tom Brady in India and New England, Patriots last night. Thirty eight to twenty four. You know, Andrew lucked cannot be Tom Brady. He's lost every time against Tom Brady that he has faced them, but there was some unacceptable drops according to coach Frank. Right. What were your thoughts about the Indianapolis Colts first things first? Well. They probably should have won the game on how well they played. They're playing with the practice squad rec- or us because of injury. And the fact that the the roster was depleted anyway. When Chris Ballard became general manager two years ago, the cupboard was bear the group that succeeded said, taking a championship team and run it into the ground, and there was nothing left. So this is this is a rebuilt. Frank won't say it and chriswell and say, but I will. It's rebuilt having said that they were magnificently coached, Andrew is back and better than ever probably should have won the game, had they caught the ball and not had the inexcusable turnovers, give the pats credit for taking advantage of that as they always do. If you give them gifts, they cash them in and they don't go to WalMart. They go to Neiman Marcus. So that's what occurred. Now, the good news for the for the. Colts is that on defense, they got some players Leonard, who's the rookie of the week the month. Excuse me. The NFL was not there because of injury. Divall sheer played well, Marcus hunters playing better than I've ever seen in plain his career to Nico Autry, went out early with a with an injury, but he's a pretty good front. Guy. Me cooker is is going to be an excellent safety and and gathers who went out with a concussion. Relatively early in the game is a good specialist on defense. So they got something to build on the Bill with on defense on offense, coverage pretty bare. They need a running back. They need to wide receivers. They need an offensive tackle if they can get those guys and and I'm not saying Marvin Harrison, you're not gonna find him every day. That's right. If you can get to Reggie Wayne's and an edgier James. Now, all of this. There are a formidable team. Bill telephone as read. I've seen I'm talking about Ryan grantchester, Raj, Zach, PASCAL, and rookie running back in the ones that not hime Hines and titan Eric Hebron. Every one of them dropped a pass. Last five, five different people dropping passes. I don't think I've ever seen it on an NFL team, not five different guys drop it passes the Bill Polian. The reason you saw it is because they're not around long on fell teams. Once. Your ticket? No question right here with Steven on ESPN radio and ESPN news. What are your thoughts about the New England Patriots? Now that Julian Edelman is back, I just did that makes them different team. Not to mention the fact that this kid Sony Michelle has been running a football affectively averaging better than five years carry. You give Bill Belichick somebody to run the football for him and reliable pass catcher like Joe man, I think in the New England, Patriots, it. Everybody expects you to be your thoughts about that..
