"He shows consistency and i would say some level of just minor improvement on a week to week basis. He's probably got a pretty good chance of making this roster because he's the guy who bust his ass he's probably not going to be good enough to start or even receive enough snaps to have much of an impact in this giants defense. But as long as you can show that if a situation where blake martinez goes down. And they need him to step in or somebody else goes down and they need him to step in and he can be really really good on special teams. He's gonna make this roster this performance a thing is a positive sign in the right direction for a guy like carter coughlan. Yeah yeah after the game. In his post-game thoughts. Ed suggested that carpet fat coughlin could be pushing. Take crowder for the starting job next to blake blake martinez and i honestly could see that. Especially if he keeps improving at the rate we have seen if he is able to build off of this first. Preseason game and continue to take steps going forward. I actually could see him winning a starting job now he might not be an every down player but if he keeps playing smart processing information while he moves well in space and he does have that pass rush of billy from his time as an edge. You know in college. That could be an intriguing piece. For patrick graham especially the way he likes to call defense since call these blitzes and scheming pressures you're ultimately what's going to make you more of an asset to a team and increase. Your chances of being able to make is being able to do multiple things. That background has an edge. Rusher is going to help him. They're not going to ask them to rush the passer in really any instance during the regular season but the fact that he can do it. If in a pinch you're down a guy on a short week and you don't have time to bring somebody up just having someone who can play. Multiple spots is really good. And he's played in this defense outside linebacker now. He's playing inside linebacker so he has familiarity at multiple positions. That is going to be really really key for a guy like carter coffin. I did he is going to be an increased chance. After what we saw from this one performance. We can really take away some positives for coughing and i would be super shocked. If he's not on this team. Come the start of the season. The one other thing to it just want hit on chris. We talked about in the post game stream areas williams continues to exceed my expectations. I think that that's super positive what we saw from him. He has the fumble recovery. He leads the team in tackles. He's not really plus athlete. He's not really a guy that is going to be super dynamic. He's probably not going to be a starter but he's really showing like hey. I was drafted for a reason. You gotta keep me around. I'm going to be a a key. Backup player in a really hard working special. Teamer that make sense to me now. Why they brought them on. I did get a little flack for for questioning that draft pick selection because it just didn't make any sense to me and as i always say i walk is to prove me wrong. I really like it when guys proved me wrong. Leonard williams has done it so far and here we are. Again with another williams dairies williams. Yeah this first game. I think it's a good starting point for him. He's got things he's got to tighten up I saw a few of his tackles. Were you know he was being targeted in coverage any touch to guy down but he was at least in good position. And that's a good starting point for him. That's how he wound up with that. He was in good position. That's how he wound up with that fumble recovery know. He didn't cause the fumble but he was right there when the ball came loose and he was able to return. I believe nineteen yards. So if he's able to maybe tighten up his coverage a little bit. Keep being in good position and keep busting his butt on special teams. I think that's a pretty solid path to the final roster for certainly going to help him maybe establish away onto this roster and to stick around. It's not a guarantee if you're a late round draft pick to make the team so having a hell of a first performance when the amount of snaps you're going to get through. The preseason are just gradually going to diminish. he's going to prove himself as a very talented guy or not talented but hard working guy rather that that deserves to remain with this giants team in twenty twenty one folks. That's gonna be it for us on today's episode. We're going to be coming your way with a preview of the giants next game against the cleveland. Browns second preseason game hopefully see a little bit more from the starters conceal a little bit more from this roster will probably have time.

"Gonna happen at all. Considering they were going against the Jets. They got so many players out this week with covert testing that they're struggling against the Jets, but they have scored just now to make it 20 to 16 jets 20. Even 16 missed the point after their did Cleveland. Ravens also could use in Miami lost. They didn't get help last night from the Raiders. Action out of a gun takes the handoff. Dobbins goes up the middle and Blake Martinez takes him down as he gets out to the 28 yard line for a gain of three Gods. Defense has been much better in the second half when they were first half. And that's an example right there. Just Limiting the run. Right off the bat. The first drive of this game, the Ravens when eight minutes and 82 yards. And then got a three it out and went five minutes and 65 yards, and there are 14 nothing before the Giants offense had even gotten warmed up. Right now. 27 13 Ravens eight minutes to go way are in the fourth quarter hand off up the left side. Struggling close to get to a first down as Gus Edwards comes up from the pile. Gonna be about a yard to have short with the Ravens won a few teams the NFL when they get to third down. It is 32 or 33. I mean, they still are strong. Fork Liberty to continue to run the ball. Most teams. It's just a passing situation all the way around. Excellent use of the word proclivity. From you, The Duke graduate here in the booth. It's a third down and bet on a yard and a half. That's in honor of Daniel Jones. Today. There we go. Another duty take handoff. Jackson leaps over a blocker tried to run and he got stifled. No gain on the play, and the Giants defense makes a stand. The Ravens gonna have to punt. It was a good state. They really.

"He had his back up tight in Jacob Hollister Open. 15 yards down the field without anybody around him at the Giants 28. First in 10, Seattle. There's an injury to Blake Martinez, a guy they Giants cannot afford to lose their leading tackler. The big create an acquisition from Green Bay in the offseason, leaves this Giants team in tackles. It is tied for fourth in the NFL. Over 100 tackles are ready to seize it. For Martinez, who has been active today for the Giants Defense 7 35 remaining He's a guy that has tremendous diagnosis. He's underrated as an athlete. A lot of times when you start hearing about guys that are smart, instinctual football players, you assume that means they can't run. The reality is Martinez is a great athlete, but he also couples that He also couples that with the ability to diagnose and he's no wasted movement, he's not a guy that false steps. He's a guy that not quick to bite on a play action fake. He's not a guy that bite. On that outfit up, move it from a tight in position. 1st and 10 for the Seahawks. At the Giants 28 yard line.

"Martinez incomplete, that play was like a roller coaster. I mean, it thought looked like when you throw deep. Betty's under pressure from fact rule that he doesn't friend Tarkenton impression back there that he's got some space to go all the way back. Looks like it might get picked off. Bye. Blake Martinez, Fulghum grabs out of the air but not able to catch it. The risk reward. You may have to analyze your course and went second down, intend no harm done from the 44th Hand off. It's a blast going up the middle. Angling to the left is Clement. And he's tackled a giant's territory at the 49 by beach a hill So they're rotating backs here. It's been mostly Boston Scott. But in the absence of Sanders, we've seen Scott. We've seen Clem it we've seen Huntley. Really nice. 2nd 10 run with Giants only had three defensive lineman out there. Tyler factory was standing up walking around. They ran right at seven yard pick up third and three. Now they spread it with five receivers went Operating from the gun. The approach nine minutes to play second quarter. Went steps up. He's gonna run for went to the 45. He's got a first out. There was no hesitation whatsoever. He saw the whole shot through it like Martinez with tackle to bring down. Garson wins like that play called Doug Peterson. Unless whence audible to it, That's a quarterback draw right there out of empty..

"All right. We don't have a ton of new like Cam Newton's the starting quarterback. Deebo Samuel is looking more likely for week one. Plays the Jaguars traded another starter. They traded safety Ronnie Harrison for a fifth round pick. They've now traded Jalen. Ramsey. That was obviously last year. Yanni can gawk wage boy callejas Campbell, and now the safety Rodney Harrison, they could have just such a bad defense. The cowboys released a hawk Clinton Dix. Lead to some Earl Thomas. Speculation. Interns and we got gotTa Mailbag to get to as well. So in terms of IT P Do you. How do you feel about it? I like the way we play it in the League we play in together. I'm not I'm not that crazy about I'd DP where you have like three defensive players just doesn't feel like it adds any scarcity and there's no reason to ever reach early drafts but. We play in a league where how many ear starting like nine defensive players it I think every week yes Now, you've. Now you've got legitimate. Scarcity in it like there are definitely I. Mean, Eh, offensively what you're looking for different paths in a draft to win. In, that draft you can make the argument that taking a defensive player in the. Seventh or eighth round is a good strategy. You could also argue waiting until the twentieth rounds good strategy which I like. Yeah I actually think the way we play. Makes me less likely to take I want to try to get one or two really good defensive players I didn't quite accomplish that. Maybe I did I only took one early and was Bobby Wagner? Do. You know who I took who? Do you know. He's dead I'll put it that way. He plays for the chargers and he's a safety Derwin James. Oh. Wow. When did you take him? Early, enough to know not not I think it might have been a tenth round or something, but it doesn't feel great. Yes. So There's so many players that. Getting, one study it doesn't do as much for your total fantasy points. I mean we're starting three wide receivers. Affleck's two running backs obviously tight end quarterback and then nine defensive player. So it's harder for one player to really have a huge impact. So defensive players don't go that early. In this draft, I'm going to take a look try and they go earlier than any other IDP draft that I've done if they go earlier. Especially, if you're playing it for years, I've been in leagues that have three ID people and everyone's been in that league for a while and they never go as early as they go in this draft. When do they start going? Darius let her go in the sixth round that was the first pick. Right. Which is, which is it seems to me that as among linebackers, he's the clear standout. He's almost a tear unto himself. I. Think it's defensible even though I wouldn't go that early but at least I like the idea that it's a possibility and you don't just mock it. Because, you say that it's so diluted, but it's diluted for every other position to if you can find stay consistent every week contributors format like the one we're talking about which Leonard is then they're just as valuable some dumb wide receiver. Yeah I think once you start getting into like your fifth defense. Defensive. Interchange, right, there are so many interchangeable. So you do Kinda WanNa get elite ones. But if you're playing in a DP, league is a lot of just interchangeable parts here. There were some that went in the seventh round. and then yeah obviously a lot later in the draft as well. Are there any in particular that other than Derwin James? You like this year. Like don't like James at all anymore because he's not going to play. It's a bummer. It's a pretty severe bummer Defensive back is the place where I. Like to make a difference. If I can because there are just so many you could say that love is like four or five guys. Probably I would say four now now that there's not five because James has gone Jamal Adams Landon Collins I have. Jordan Jordan lawyer while I was really impressed and surprise I thought he was in my pocket I was GonNa take him and people are Jordan player in Buffalo I had Buddha Baker. In this league last year I think he is great and belongs to that conversation as well and so I i. definitely I don't really think linebacker early ninety p drafts because other than Leonard feels like a lot of similar seeming, very consistent production from middle linebackers who just get tackles, right? That's kind of what they do I, don't mind getting pass rushers. But you you need to find sack specialists who also tackles because saks aren't prevalent enough to have. Sex. Be The only thing but I I reached for James He was the first defensive player I took it with the wrong But if I can get one of those four or five defensive backs I I, think they qualify as what you just described as those like worth reaching four. They are pretty different from their their position mates. Okay. So Not, really so big on defensive lineman like Neil Daniel. Hunter. Win In round eight. Joey Bosa went around eight. That's You're not. It's fine. I mean I think I can't remember who I took I took a couple of those guys I'm going to take and Melvin Ingram I think he has a potential bounceback interesting sleeper because he was so. He's been pretty disappointing the past couple of years. I'm fine with it. Like there's two strikes me the elite tier of Defensive Lineman? is a little bigger than the elite tier of defensive backs. So if I'm going to reach the first pick I'm gonNA reach with is probably a defensive back but. I'm certainly more likely to take a defensive lineman before the. you know before we start grabbing bodies because at linebacker I feel like that's mostly doing it just grabbing bodies. So my preference of position would probably be like an elite defensive back that would be I ily defensive lineman. I'm definitely in there just a little bit more of them so I can wait a little bit and then linebacker. Probably. That doesn't matter as much fair enough Blake Martinez is an interesting name. He was kind of a tackle machine with the packers. And now he's the giants I do not. Want to take. Him. He. He's I. Don't think he's that good I mean, he didn't have much of a market and the book on him was that he just made a lot of plays like Kinda downfield. And, the packers had terrible defensive tackle though for a lot of the bad run defense giants have a much better run defense I'm not sure Martinez is going to. Switching teams like there's just a lot of variables investing in early pick in a linebacker who's not like a great player but played Martinez is not Darius. Leonard. And he's going to a new team and there's just some variables. That's a mistake. Yeah I'm fine with that. Take I I just think just generally if what we're trying to do is predict which teams are going to funnel tackles to their middle linebackers. We don't know that. True Right, like why take why taken average player under the assumption that just because year on a different team they funnel out tackles to him to say nothing of the fact that the way the giant scores sometimes split tackles I don't know if you've ever noticed that before but. The just the giant scorekeeping in general you gotTa have you see it you get a half tackling your. One tackle there. I didn't know. Okay. Even more reason not to lake. Lake. All right. Well, I hope that's helpful for IEP. if you have any more questions tweet Chris. What's your question? Your contempt is dripping from your voice. No I I don't mind it. You know what it's I don't really like..

"When we look at the defense for the Giants that bring in Blake Martinez this past offseason. They made that trade which I don't really get for Leonard Williams last year. Now he's back on the franchise tag. The giant's defense is what to you for this upcoming year Mark Cross. The Giants defense is not much better than last year on a CZ you saw last year they really were a liability. The biggest thing is the pass rush. They still don't have a pass rusher. They basically are counting on Markus Golden, who they signed very late. You know that? No. No one else around the league really want market stolen. There wasn't a big market for him. He's a free agent and they got him in a couple weeks ago signed him back. They have a couple of young players that they're counting on who didn't really produced last year. So you know that's really in the NFL. You gotta rush the past. We had to get after the quarterback and the Giants don't really I still have that pass for us. Even though they've been looking for that past couple years, I thought, I think Blake martinis with their big free agent signing along with James Bradberry. He's a corner. You know, Blake Martinez, I think really is just kind of a journeyman talent, a za linebacker, and they played a bunch of money for him. When you look at James Bradberry, they paid a bunch for him. But How much better is he then? Generous Jenkins. You know they had issues with generous because of his personality and his comments he made which were obviously wrong. But how much better is James Bradberry than generous? Jenkins that you have a look at it? But DeAndre Baker situation their first round pick where they lost. You know, in the sand deal there their third round pick from the supplemental draft a couple years ago. They lost him as well. So you're gonna help.

"Here are the kids from Wisconsin it was a good player but other than that there's not a ton of linebackers the that they went early to open early and after that did it there's not any that I was craving you know what I mean yeah that's I think that's honestly why Dave Gettleman addressed it specifically in head on in free agency I mean Blake Martinez is one of the I think it was the first signing for us in free agency yeah right and then and then he brings in fact role in in Bradbury in the secondary exit bribery might but first we had to be honest with you but then they were very aggressive in shoring up the holes in free agency on defense so what we wanted which by the way take rarely works it does very rarely work you're right but I think he has a familiarity with James Bradberry from his days in Carolina and his coordinator his defensive coordinator Lisa giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham was with the Green Bay Packers and so background is best season under Graham the Packers Blake Martinez was drafted under Graham with the Packers so it's like it's like you're servicing your skin your your your coaches your staff like you're giving them what they want victim it's death if dexter Lawrence turns out to be the player you know if he's a first rounder that they expect them to be Leonard Williams you know his grievance not withstanding turns out to be a contributor the giants Stevens can get okay kind of pretty quickly but you don't raise the price still there right but yeah I want to ask you a question one one quick but I got I got a question for you would have a lot of time but I want to ask you this what is your what is your realistic expectation for the giants this year really what you got what five hundred be happy you know what I got thanks for the call they're bright I think you need to be a little more ambitious with that because I think a lot about senior living five you're not there yet we know that but you know to me night and seven PM in the periphery the wall corporation I don't think that that's off the table but I can't say that about the jets I cannot that's what I feel B. T. that's what I feel the giants yeah that's a position they look the division's gonna beat it watch it is going to be better you don't I mean just just because of the philosophy the mentality of of their their head coach Dallas should be better the Philadelphia Eagles were already good even like they kind under chief level they weren't healthy teak truth sets that mean the under G. but it wasn't it wasn't really anybody's fault the division is hard right so if you go like eight eight actually a horrible I mean in in ninety seven which is not where I think they're going to fall in yeah the we'll see how the rest of this draft plays out I think that's that's the progress that you need to see and we'll see if Joe judge is no nonsense this quiet like like confidence and didn't this demeanor this this this this dump that I feel when I'm when I hear him or look at him I think it's a good thing for this team I would I don't know if it's gonna play out this way but I remember an old jet fans were old enough to remember this you go back to I know it's obviously a point of reference it's a it's a horrendous period we get that but in the mid nineties will co type right in the greater points not about coach that it's about the giants here but just to connect the threat so they go free thirteen in ninety five they go wanted fifteen back in ninety six and that Parcells comes at a ninety seven they open up in Seattle that's the weekend princess Diana was killed in the corporation a member service coming back relax city heard it yeah that was the day before my first game as a giant home I guess eagles that night had that happened that night in the morning I woke up and we played the eagles first game young tiki yep and they play Seattle all right and they hang forty something on at the old kingdom and I'm like what my expectations I'm like a I don't know just the just the I don't wanna get embarrassed every week I got my real expectation coming in and right away you can see the other scores forty seven points but as the season progressed you could tell that they were very diligent on special teams fuel position which was more important than more so than now because everybody scores points for the most part now but the little things like punt returns and and endpoint defense or if your position and I really think that that Joe judge is going to have an impact there yeah special teams coach that is where and that's the kind of thing and listen we can talk about all the guys that they brought in we could talk about the injured Thomas and whoever else they want the draft in we could talk about the angel Jones and sake wanted sterling eleven anger more you want even Dion Lewis was a decent under the radar pick up about that all day the division if the giants gonna steal a game or two and they're going to get tonight at seven it's going to be because they're somehow elevate their special teams and I actually think that could happen for the giants this year no you're right look at we talk about this all the time with the pats situational football is why they when they put in they put S. S. a guy could be a superstar Tom Brady Julian Edelman rob Gronkowski or could be you know the the the the the backup tackle right they put him in a position where he has to specifically it's in a situation execute they always do it right and that's not just on offense and defense it's sometimes on special teams you know and so if you if you if you pay attention to the details it's amazing what happens in you know as much as I bristled with Tom Coughlin dates your body right yeah right because I'm the fourth best word I can find bristled with Tom Coughlin his details other reason that he was such a great coach like the details matter and in coaches that are caught up with the nonsense got there for you know they've they've had their head stuck in the been the place she'd like I wanted to call I don't wanna do here to force you to go over like if you if you focus on the details good things in generally happening in if I'm looking for co ever looking for coach that's what I want tell me about the details of how you handling those because that's that's what wins and loses football games okay eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six tickets you're here on the family get a break we'll come back we'll get some more calls will start to look at jets are up in a couple of spots you're still some good receivers obviously and you know if your is because I. S. style this color is bright you know what's a realistic expectation for the giants later I thought he was under selling a little bit and again within reason I think the giants are probably step ahead of the jets right now but at least what we're we're getting out of the weeds man like there's nothing more depressing than having no shot and at least you know it seems like for the first time in a couple years specialties offense of linemen pan out for both teams the jets and the giants or or slowly trudging in the right direction so get more calls eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six on a.

"They got burnt over and over and over again. A guy like Joe. A guy like Cory Littleton can can provide upgrades in that regard and then maybe you bring in a second guy through the draft and all of a sudden. Your linebacker position goes from a weakness to strength put. Were you feeling on on on a linebackers? I like one of the other options you put out there Blake Martinez. I think that he's a really strong tackler. I think that we've seen in his career with the packers that he is somebody that can really kind of command a defense. And so I think that that's part of what the raiders need. And it's not that Joe. Schubert can't do those kinds of things but I think in terms of how the raiders can really structure their defense and really overhaul. I think that he might be a better option. But I first of all Cory Littleton. I think would be the best. So if we're not for taking off the table I would say Blake Martinez only wanted to for the the sake of conversation. In past episodes we have spoke about Littleton. So yeah but I like Blake Martinez a lot and I think like something that you alluded to your article. That was important to note was that he played a lot of games with a broken hand. So I mean he missed a lot of tackles how much of it is due in part to that and he was good at stopping the run. He was pretty. Good hundred. Fifty nine tackles was and I think the team had. Even you know the the official team stats. I believe had like near one. Seventy or over one seventy that's their stats of course So yeah he's a he's a you know when you talk about Miss Tackles eighteen is what I what I what I saw is playing with a broken arm. But he's also that shows you sometimes where it could be a little bit. Deceiving he's getting there Where baby guys aren't even getting there? So summa has mrs could be in situations where there wasn't even anyone there to make initial tackle so at least he's shows obviously a nose for the ball. WanNa be able to be able to dissect the run and get there and as miles alluded to he quarterbacks your defense and I think that's a huge huge aspect. He's such an astute player and is able to to make the calls and then you know he might not be the athlete. That corey is or even Joe. Shelbert is but you draft a guy that that can be that kind of an athlete. That could be a better fit as far as defending the pass and all of a sudden. You've got a really good quarterback guy that's going to be able to stop. The run is good enough in pass coverage and then you also try to add to the draft and elite pass cover linebacker and again now. All of a sudden you're linebacker situation goes for a weakness to stay very stable. I think sometimes people underestimate how much that matters being the quarterback of the Defense. Because vaunt perfect was that for the raiders for the first few games of the year and then of course he gets suspended for the rest of the twenty thousand nine season and so then that responsibility shifts satire. Whitehead. And you know. I don't want to disparage anything about your whitehead in his character and whatnot you know. He is a good guy but I think that someplace where the raiders knew. They needed to improve. And so that's why you put in will compton in order to do those types of things throughout the latter stages of the season. He's got better and it did so when you have somebody like that who you now say. Okay we'll compton. Can maybe a bridge to somebody else. But if you can go out in free agency and signed the guy that you want to be the quarterback of your defense and you because you already know that that's better and then you draft somebody in the. Maybe they grow into that. I've seen that before with the with the Rams where you had James Lauren. Itis he had been the quarterback of the defense for years and years and years and you drafted Algal Tree. He starts out as the outside weakside linebacker and then he grows into being the signal caller of the defense. That's how you can maybe transition those things and make them work very very well and then. Alex handed it over to Corey yes and. Then he gave it to Eric. Waddel Eric Weddell You know th this year but he even Corey's a guy that could quarterback you're I don't know that necessarily his strength and I think Blake is you know he's he really stands out in that regard and also on the field but off the field. He's a from everything that I've that I've heard He's tremendous in the in the locker room He's tremendous. He's a great guy to have around. So I know some guy you know. There's there's fans out there that are knocking him for his athletic ability. Sometimes that can be exposed. But you're not going to get a perfect player. Necessarily he brings so much to the table that I think gets overlooked sometimes by fans and and that's why I put him on that. Lets US forth on my list But but there's no question that he provides an upgrade over what the raiders had last year. Someone else I'm curious about and I WANNA get your both of your takes on this guy. Patrick Queenie's a name. That's been coming up it when you look at the. Nfl MOCK draft database sees somebody they played for Lsu Championship game. That's something that Obviously Mike. Mayock and Jon gruden looked at a lot last year when they were kind of looking over their picks. What do you think about him as a fit? He's a guy that's you know. Had A fifty. Nine Solo tackles with Lsu. He's had a good share of fumbles and putting pressure on people. So what do you think about him and how he might fit in? I think he's a strong athlete. First of all I think when you watch what he was able to do not just in the championship game but in the run up to the championship game you see somebody who is a thumper who can come up and hit you who can run very well and that's what you need out of the linebacker position you need athleticism because these running backs are really really tough to cover you. Talk to guys about trying to cover. Alvin Kamara it is one of the most difficult things you can do. Because he's on these option routes coming out of the backfield so you don't really know which way he's going to go but you also have to be able to tackle him so there's a lot that goes into that and I think when you have that kind of linebacker yes each somebody that's young somebody that can run any somebody that can grow. That's probably a solid fit for if you want to overhaul your linebacker position. Why don't you think they're gonNA want well? They do want to overhaul the linebacker position but they have to. I think had the only regular player. That's that's even under contract for next year so so just in that sense. It's going to be a whole new crew and it has to be a whole new crew because that was like we talked about a weakness and I talked to Mike Mac. About it at the at the scouting combine. They know that they need to add. Explosiveness playmakers Dependability production at linebacker. And some other positions we've talked about Kyle Duger Last on the last show the The division three safety and in today's NFL We're seeing more and more were safeties are being able to come down to the line of scrimmage to play that de facto Cover linebacker so You know it might come from that kind of Ended in in terms of the draft. You might get a safety. That could play both ways linebacker and safety to be able to help in the past coverage because as miles alluded to covering these running backs nowadays by linebackers is. I'm not going to say it's impossible because obviously there's guys that can do it but it is really really hard and that's why you're seeing more of these safeties that are coming in and there's a lot of teams out there. Now that are playing safety sets because they're asking those that third safety to be that Kinda linebacker quote safety. That's going to be able to stick with running backs and tight ends out out of the Backfield to play. Madden quite often and I do love a good safety blitz and the more you can get up there and through a safety bullets in their Something I wanted to do before we wrap things up here is discussing a tweet. They came across on my timeline and this was last week when I had asked the fans about what they thought about the whole. Tom Brady incidents and somebody had said that. If the raiders. Take Tom Brady that. There is no way that they could still be a raider fan despite all the Times that the team has moved on them. And this goes back to the TUCK. Rule Where you're in Charles Woodson forces the fumble and then it said that it wasn't a fumble because Tom Brady was talking it in and That cost the raiders. I obviously advancing into the Super Bowl. So when you look at that as something that Raider fans take to heart still how do you think Raider fans would take it? If Tom Brady were in fact brought into the team do you think the a lot of fans jumped ship. Do you think a lot of fan. So hold a grudge. I think fans jumped ship. I think the fans not only grudge. I mean like so long ago I I understand that people have long memories in terms of in terms of football but I think maybe it's it's one of those things where Oh man we signed Tom. Brady Tom Brady this. Tom Brady that and then like if but once you know he starts winning games. Who CARES I go back to In the late great Kobe Bryant. I still can't believe I'm saying that right now. sadly but There were Laker fans who didn't accept Lebron James initially because they were quote unquote Toby stand exactly Kobe versus Lebron in that area. And it's like you know that would be like if the Lakers had gotten Larry Bird back in the day you're not going to accept Larry. Bird played for the Celtics. Obviously you take Larry Bird if he's available. Obviously you take Lebron James and you forget about all that nonsense first of all. It's not Tom. Brady's fall. It was the referee's fault or however the referee called it so to hate him on a play that he was just making the. I mean he was just out there participating. It wasn't his call. That's just irrational to me. And if he comes in here and does well and wins I think that even those knuckleheads that would dislike him for that reason would come around eventually all right so that'll do it here on the Vegas Nation podcast brought to you again by S. T. N. sports mobile by station casinos and also presented to you by untuckit. Guys make.

Goodell where's your spine consistency in punishment Hey a B. Caddell Pat be more of a rock star less of a D. bag I'm out right you Debbie thank you. it's very clear about something. cracker. is not a good word. cracker however is not the equivalent of an N. bomb it just isn't and I know some you wanna make that argument and you've been trying to make that argument it's not one and the same. I find hard to believe that I even have to make that statement cracker is not the same you can't flip that on its head and say yeah well what about that that's the equivalent of this no it's not it just isn't me say something else your point is Hey Roger Goodell what are you gonna do about it a better question what did the raiders do about it you for so horrible. why was that guy going to play tonight. yeah that was such a horrible thing and I'm I don't condone it in any way at all but if that was sold horrible if that's as horrible as you make it sound then why did Jon Gruden let it slide. if that was so horrible why did the patriots signed this guy. that's not a good L. thing that was a lie you can hold get held accountable for Jon Gruden. saw a player call his general manager that and had no issue with it didn't suspend them and was going to play him no my bigger issue is not they called him a cracker again not a good thing obviously but my bigger issue was he was trying to fight the GM it had to be held back by his teammate. that's the bigger issue here. print terms that word you know horrible that word is didn't seem to bother Jon Gruden get it. may I didn't like it. one eight hundred six three six eight six eight six but it's not the same that's not the equivalent of an N. bomb it's it's just not the same thing it isn't that's not my take either it's not opinion it just isn't the same thing it's bad but it's not that bad. and again the raiders in seem to care today they were gonna overlook that whole thing given overlook everything Gruden thought it was awesome then Tony brown taped conversation with him on the phone didn't tell him and in mock dimming clowned him and pushed it out over social when asked about that grins at all that's awesome. tough guy Jon Gruden won a place with a hammer and a iron fist many let Antonio brown do whatever the hell he wanted. and then he got himself run. that work to. and not just your fan for a minute it you were not to be the same without two pro bowlers but don't tell me that you were expecting to lose by thirty in prime time to an alleged rival you know you're gonna be that bad you can't tell me you saw that coming. I don't buy that invites fans were you your one week one going up against a rookie quarterback in a rookie head coach and dominating that game and you come from head to tie. the line's fans here. one eight hundred six three six eight six eight six the third I was gonna set up like this we'll talk more about the patriots Tom Curren is on the inside he's an NBC sports patriots insider can we get a starts about Antonio brown and whether or not he thinks that's going to work with on Antonio brown he's going to fit in. that's coming up next hour top of our number three I've got. actors linebacker Blake Martinez also a wild story involving Mike Scott. office seventy six Scott makes the mistake of showing up to an eagles game wearing red skin gear. you think that somebody who lived in Philly would know better you think that a professional athlete in Philly would know better he seem to care he's a redskin fan any six or player in Philly fending give a damn about that we shop in their house we're in the wrong colors you have to do with them and their hands. and that's what happened. you can't get hooked like that but he did. so he was trying allegedly to fight multiple eagle fans. so I get there also. and I'm gonna make my first run to New York during the NFL season I've got enough on CBS it coming up on Sunday which I'm looking forward to as well right so that's how it all set up you have your phone number you have your email address you know where to find me on Twitter I'm still looking for a good eighty P. on a Monday ask the pros you got to send out to the right address and the best question gets read on the air. and no I'm not jump on the bandwagon with brown's yet either one game one week. a really bad game really bad week. but go ahead jump off we don't need you there.

But we got a chance to chat with a terrific young player who let's face it. You know, he was really good at Stanford middle round pick. And what he's become the NFL. Probably why I don't think he's surprised nor do I think the Packers are surprised because they liked him in the draft. And they took him in a lot of ways he's probably further along than most thought he would be. He's been terrific. And that is Blake Martinez. Just finished up his third year.

How did you guys take that? Because we're starting to hear reports that there was a complacency that set in all this. I dunno rhetorical nonsense. It sometimes just gets reported, even if it's not true. But was it. What was the last few months like with coach McCarthy? Yeah. I think it was. I mean for us. I feel like I was mainly defense. Too much. Mccarthy boy over him as a coach you obviously gave me my opportunity to have for my first three years. But I think overall I think it was just a a moment of needing chains needing a new kind of on a. So the environment to the culture around the facilities, and that type of thing that would just give more of a on a motivation or better outlook, and and. I guess grinding factor back in. Yeah. So we could get back to our our winning ways. Yeah. Have you have you met coach leflore? Yeah. As you've been around you'd probably have it because you you haven't been there, and he's probably just getting there himself, but you know, him at all or know about him. I knew about him. But yeah, not too much about him. And I sent them in overall these past week. I've learned a lot about him on Twitter. You can learn. Well, no, I think he's he's an awesome guy. When things I've seen his ability to just adapt to given off into world, our moving towards the NFL, I think his his age. I think is the big thing in my opinion. Just from the standpoint of the young guy able to kind of coexists with us and be kinda just like a player built a great relationship in that aspect. Yeah. No. It's interesting. You talk about you keep up with guys it's social media. This your head coach. He's have a conversation with the man. Now, you could just follow them. And then listen to what people are saying at you ever had a really young head coach like this. I don't know if not just in high school and high school or in. I know you didn't in college because it was David Shaw probably a position coach, maybe in the NFL. But what how different is that from a not a father figure, but an old head versus one of these young one coaches who were, you know, fifteen years older than you. It's uh. It's definitely interesting. I think it's definitely different for me. I don't think I've ever had a coach throughout my career. That's been pretty early close to my age. But overall, I I just kind of the Berber lot and seeing young coaches around the league, it just seems like they're always fired up on the sideline. Their players are feeding off it November the older guys. Maybe can't move like that. Well, overall, just kind of rallying and like I said once again being being like a player out there. And I think guys kind of it's infectious everyone on the field. So we're told a Blake Martinez a terrific young linebacker for the Packers. And he's with us here on Tiki and Tierney CBS sports radio what's all about your quarterback a little bit. We all know how gifted era Aaron Rodgers might arguably be the most talented quarterback of all time when you throw in the arm the instincts, the IQ the to run throw it on the against the grain is the study. But we're we're miles twelve fifteen hundred miles away from wiscon-, whatever it is here. So we we kind of have to guess, and we kinda have to connect the dots. And and I I don't I hope this doesn't come across the wrong way. But I really want an honest answer. I hope you can give us some perspective on this. I feel like Blake from the outside looking in that Aaron Rodgers isn't necessarily one of the guys. He's he's a bit of a complex figure, certainly a deep thinker and cerebral, which I'm sure you can appreciate that having gone to Stanford. But it is is everybody down with Rogers. It doesn't seem like it is from a distance. What does that like? No. I think I mean, it's tough to see outside perspective. I got well. I think if you're a player in the locker room with him. He's everyone loved him. He's a great guy. I think is persona that people see or whatever from outside in is just the thing of frustration because he's a winner. And it hasn't been like that in the past couple of years. But when you're with them inside the locker room, he's always helping guys out. I remember when I was a rookie. I kinda kinda put the fear aside. And I went up to him and asking questions on linebackers. He hated to go against the always talked about Brian Urlacher and gave me inside things on what he did to frustrate them. And do those types of things, and and he's always a guy that super passionate at practice leading the offense. When it needs to be led. I think I mean my long but try. Short answer. I think he's a guy that everyone loves them to fill it in is one of the things that people look at a losing record. And it kinda just goes towards the the most well known guy. Puts him in a bad light. Yeah. No. It's it's interesting. Interesting answer because he's he's the guy that everybody's gonna ask the question of. And so I mean, you were there spoiled a little bit as a rookie because you to go to the NFC championship games. Like, oh, we're going to be right back here. Obviously he got hurt last season in this season. We all we all know what happened as you. As you think about errands career, and you know, where it can still go. This move will be good for him. But will it be good for I guess the rest of you guys as well? Because we always look at it in the context and only talk about it in Roger's to benefit from heaven Matlock, four there, are you guys gonna also benefit from this. I think I think obviously in different ways, I think for us. It builds a new accountability structure for everyone. Just because it's not something they're comfortable too. And I I think it's not just the players, but anybody in the facilities where it's hey, this guy's new. He's going to be watching over all of us. We need to step up our game that much more because we're not getting the job done. He's not the guy that brought us in. He's not the guy that opportunity. He's just gonna get another guy that he thinks will get the job done that you want. That's smart way to think about it. Blake martinez. Absurd. Blaker? Go ahead, buddy. No, I don't think that was a kickback on the plate Martinez. Play fourteen is the Packers with us here on Tiki and Tierney Blake we've been talking a lot about offense in the National Football League. I know that defenses have started to adjust in a way. I mean, we put a lot of pressure on you as a backer, especially if you don't substitute was. I don't think you do all the time as you've seen the evolution of offense. You've seen some of these things that you saw in the Pac twelve in college come into the National Football League. How you guys addressing that? How are you? How are you changing your schemes or changing your your approaches towards attacking offense? Now. I think it's definitely changed throughout the last couple years. Just obviously a new guy coming in on offense event that are adapting and growing the NFL game to be kind of like the the college game a lot of spread out offenses and doing a lot of things like that. I think for the most part it's been big for me because it's had it's made me have to grow my game that much more free snap from the making the check making the judgment, which was awesome for me this year. We're coach Penn gave me a lot of freedom to do certain things within the defense that would allow me to change things up given formation recognition those types of things that would take away some of those college like ways. Yeah. Give us a good opportunity to stop them. What hurts zero yard gain or a big PF L in the backfield. Nice. Nice. Those on no tech TSL's tackle for a loss. I'm blake. Mike patton. We just like I was just making sure this was confirmed in our Sam Sam did you said this for Mike Patton back. So even though you have new staff in a sense in a new head coach Mike is coming back, and that's good for you. Because you've thrived under that. And in fact, that leads us to the talking points that you're on with with video, and the TV P total was it total performance. Most total value performance a nominee. You're the only defensive player on this list. This isn't it seems like an offense of award last year Alvin Kamara one because he was you know, later in our second round pick and one rookie of the year. It's gotta meet some specialty used since you're being recognized with all these offense of really really underrated guys. It's an awesome award. My biggest thing taken from. It is being nominated has been awesome for me. Just from the standpoint, it it shows me, I'm doing the right thing. Especially being one of the defense. The guy for one of the only defense guys up for definitely shows me, I'm doing something. Right. And it's one of those things that just give me another motivation to keep doing what I'm doing and and keep working hard. And it's it'd be awesome. Obviously when award at the end of the day, but like I said, it's still very very appreciated that I'm up for the war in general. Fans, by the way. I know we're on out in Wisconsin fans vote for this because it's fan voting vizo dot com slash TB. Got Blake Martinez.
