Combine Rumors We Aren't Buying, Franchise Tag Frenzy
"The around the NFL podcast. Trump's out so much content. Welcome to another addition of the around the NFL podcast. I'm Greg Rosenthal in a room filled with some heroes, Mark Cecil and Chris Wesseling? It's not the same as different puts up, Greg. I thought about like should I just like you just go off the top of the totally different start. You know, just like blow up the entire machine after six straight years since Dan hands. This is not here today. But you know, it's like only one episode that you quelled the anarchist in you. Yeah. That's usually what I want to do is just blow things up, but Dan's busy. Dan has his family in town. And as the intro said, we're pumping out a lot of content. We got three shows this week Monday Wednesday Friday, we got the Twitter show on Wednesday next week. We've got an insane amount of video show. So, you know, Dan's gotta get ready for that. And the rest of us were foraging on here. I I'm not ever. It's not clear to me what aspects of Dan's family is coming his parents, which I believe it to be or is it Dan's hidden secret family that he usually differences. If you got a few drinks in them. It's not the in laws. I don't know. I'm just saying there's all there's multiple ways. Could go with a Dan feeling vacation. And he'll never listen to this. I haven't even spoken to you guys since I Indianapolis, I guess Mark. And text. I mean marks burning the midnight oil. It was in the office on Sunday that there was a scheduling tick in my own mind, having forgotten something that was due tomorrow that is megaton longer esque assignment. And I'm just I'm impressed. I mean, you're out there. I mean, it's not impressive that I forgot about it now. And what did you what have you been up to with did some work around the house fixed up, my office Lakisha helped me, of course? And then. The head of ribcage issue. So I went and got that check yesterday now. Yeah. It's it's a little little cartilage issue in my ribs of making sleeping and living difficult aches, you don't wanna spend a Sunday urgent care now. Set from stretching exercise I'd imagine. Yes, exactly. What it way too much exercise? I'm sure you were just locked in though to watching our friend Daniel, Jeremiah move, the sticks and the NFL scouting combine weekend. But you know, in case we missed anything at all later in this show. We have our our other friend wrote a world's Josh Norris. That's good because I did not watch a single how NFL combine. You know, what it does have in a specially with DJ in there with rich is like, I don't like watching golf at all. It is not something that I do. But occasionally like on a Sunday if it's in the background, and it's a hushed. Yeah. Broadcast. The combine has that same sort of hushed field to where it's very relaxing. It's great to have on in the background, my kids kind of like watching it and they pretend to do the drills, and you just like hope sort of that by us, Moses. Some of this information coming at you seeps in so I had it on. Plus I noticed when like make Mike Mayock was in the booth. What that vibe was kind of like, I could I fell a little bit of like a Drew Bledsoe two thousand one vibe like he was looking at DJ and being like, I'm not getting this job back. Oh, there's definitely dissension there. It's an event that many of my casual football fan friends love to watch. It's not an event that I ever need to see a second on television for me personally. Well, that's why we have Josh. And he's going to head L it a segment that tells us, it's combine takeaways. We don't have a strong grasp on but Josh Norris does. So he can help us. We also have an interlude we're going to call it a new thing. We're trying out where we're each going to talk about one sporting event that we've been to in person for exactly one minute with the backing music of our choice behind it. I like it. I mean, I feel like this could be this could be a segment here doesn't have to be a memorable sporting event. It could be anything you just like you ever have one of those long meals where it's like they I mean, this is like a fancy fancy thing but along meal where like in the middle of it. They almost like drop a little pallet cleanser in the middle to just kind of like, refresh you and get you ready on for the rest of it. That's what that's what this segment is the role of the second. All right. Let's the rose. Let's not waste any more time Ken Brown sitting in for air to impose eat today. She's under the weather Kent. Let's do a little news. We go out secure Costea. Traumatic million dollars over there. Yes. That was Smith ragging on some poor wide. I reject quarterback tyrod Jackson. That's right quarterback. That said he was throwing bullets to the receivers when he should just be leading them in those drills. He wasn't happy about it. Actually, confronted him. He went there during the broadcast answer the Tyree Jackson while he was throwing that's amazing. I mean, that's that's why I love Steve Smith whether now or before like he's going to say what he thinks they talked about him being put into the booth like once deejays yanked out as a general manager Steve Smith, and he just said, no, I don't wanna do that every like burn every bridge within a year or two, but it'd be fantastic to watch. Let's start our news with Antonio Brown. Where it seems like we're starting the news quite a bit these days. Ian Rapoport our NFL network insider reported Monday that the cardinals raiders and Broncos were the teams that were most intrigued by Antonio Brown. And the Steelers have a level of confidence that. They will be able to trade Brown before March seventeenth when a two point five million dollars roster bonus is in Markelle you buying it. Well, because I think it's always would have been the the unlit more unlikely scenario that the Steelers just can't find a way to trade maybe a bit of a headache. But one of the most talented receivers of our lifetime like something someone somewhere is gonna think we can take whatever baggage comes with Antonio Brown and make a trade work. I think it just depends. You know, the raiders to me have a lot of ammunition with those second two first rounders after the number four pick. When I look at this situation. It seems to make sense. Trade-wise only for a desperate general manager trying to straddle the line between building and contending. I don't think you want them on a builder rebuilder where he his mind is up. He wants to play for a Super Bowl. And I don't think you want him somebody with a comfortable GM who already thinks he has a Super Bowl contender. Because then why why upset the locker room or upset what you're doing bringing in Tony around? Awesome. Right. But you don't know what you're getting. You're getting a guy who is flying off the handle for two months straight is not willing to look in the eye and say I made a mistake. He's not willing to do any that when Randy moss went to New England that brilliance Happel because he had been humping hit been humbled by the Oakland years without the Oakland years that would never happen. Antonio Brown is trying to do this without the Oakland years. What about the though any of those three fit into year? I think the Broncos do John Elway is a desperate general manager trying to straddle that line between building and contending. You get the feeling John. John elway. Yeah. They're going for. A championship above what it's like. But something tells me he would just be happy with like nine and nine or ten win season where the Broncos get back in the playoffs and lose a game. Like, that's why you trade for Joe flacco Joe flacco is not a guy that you're getting to win a Super Bowl. There was quickly report in Denver that tried to shoot this down. So I don't really know what to believe about these Antonio Brown reports markets and the titans have been thrown in the mix to the cardinals. And raiders though like that that smells fun. The raiders the raiders have three first round picks. And they're going to have some quarterback. They're gonna either have Derek Carr or maybe a top shelf young quarterback. Or who knows who they'll have like that is a move of like, we're sick of losing. We want to get back into it right away. I mean, Peter King through the Redskins in there as well. Think about this though, if you do have Arizona suddenly Antonio Brown and David Johnson and potentially Cuyler Murray. If it's not Josh Rosen or Josh Rosen and cliff kings. That to me is spicy. I don't hate that. I'm not I'm not gonna their offense. Do anything without an offensive line though. No. But I mean, here's the thing. Like like, the he's not going. I don't think they want to trade him inside the AFC north. That's pretty clear they don't want to train them to New England. So how many teams fit the fit the fit the call sheet for him? Right. Who really fits and for the offense like convince offense of line is more of a function of the coaching staff and then the quarterback than anything in today's NFL because you could pick twenty teams in the cardinals are among the worst be picked twenty teams where the offense of line is a problem. I guess they're hoping that whatever Kingsbury is cooking up schematically is somehow going to cover up whatever their offense of line issues are and that's a GM to he's the one making the call. That's worried got to be worried about his job. So maybe Antonio Brown has get get quick get right right away type agai speaking of the cardinals, Larry FitzGerald who spent several years catching passes from the leg. Of John Skelton, max hall, Richard Bartell, John Navarre, and Kevin Cobb aches said aby doesn't realize how good he's had it with Big Ben. He's right. Yes. I agree that part of it is absolutely correct. So we've talked a lot about Antonio Brown. This off season. We've talked a lot about Nick foles this off season. And I wanted to throw this into the news that less Bowen Philadelphian quieter was one of many over the weekend. That said the Jaguars are expected to sign Nick foles. He said at the strongest Rappaport, rap sheet mentioned it might garafolo mentioned it somehow everyone who is in Indianapolis and talking to people came away saying every this combination foles in the Jaguars that everyone thinks it's going to happen. Yeah. It is going to happen. Nothing's getting in the way of not sure we needed to report to tell us what we already expected to happen. But I report says exactly what we said supposed just Incheon Jaguars are expected to sign him. But it's just inching you, closer and closer. And I talked to someone I think it's different because. It's sourced that they're saying a source in you can connect the dots with foale's because it's coming from the Philadelphia papers that like, okay, everyone's been speculating about this. But actually there was some pushback inject Ville, there wasn't anywhere really hard reporting west, and this now everyone's this kind of joining us is that forty expected to sign these hard report he said, he's he's expected to sign what we've been saying on this. We we sourced to. I'm the source. I expect him to I'm gonna put an say Nick foles and his people are expecting design there. That's a little different rap sheets said he would not rule out the dolphins. And there are significant interest in foles around the league. I mean, that's because number one until its final. Why not allow someone else to come in with a whole different deal the immediate loser. And not for me because I'm not one of these like NFC's people. But the television the schedule makers the primetime matchups that would have had potentially like New York Giants placed Nick foles. Yes, I Fili that games that we've talked about the last couple of weeks that would have been front and center on the time. I'm not giving up on the giants or even the raiders or someone surprising getting given up on the giants with Eli seems like giant still see I wanna that. Like chaos happens and crazy things happen next week next week the week. This isn't the week. I mean, the giants are they make all the decisions based on what will happen to the future ally. Manning statutes Bill to I don't know what's going to happen. All right west was under. Well, that item of news. Can I? Do in. Not hard new can I interest you in another piece of expected news, which is that the chiefs are going to tag the Ford. But here's the unexpected part from Rappaport again that they will listen to offers for d for that they are kind of putting him on the train block. What do we think? So this made me think that with Steve Spag Noah switch into a four three defense. Yeah. They announced. Yeah. Right. Visual e Ford has been great coming off the edge as outside linebacker, right? And a lotta times skillset transfers to defensive end in a four three. But it's not exactly the same. No. Maybe they don't think that it's going to be quite the terror of the edge if he's playing defensive. I mean, he had twelve sacks and twenty sixteen but three of his other seasons have two four and two sack totals. And he's only graded positively this past season on PF, and he had a couple years where he was not even on the radar. So long term commitment season two years ago that twenty sixteen but it's I wondering if maybe the idea of huge long-term financial commitment with a scheme change is put it all together and see what you can get fly. I thought he is a perfect candidate for tag, even before they were changing schemes because of what you just said. I mean, he's had basically two years where he looked like bust one year in two thousand sixteen where he looked like an all pro like he did this year for about six or seven games that was where he filled up that season. Then he got hurt and. And was playing through and didn't really. So he has not been consistent at all. And now the fact that they're listening to the offers makes me think there's a good chance. He's going to be traded because they it makes me think they've decided, well, we'll pay him this year, but he's probably never gonna sign long-term with us with the scheme chain. So we might as well listen to see if we can get a second round pick for him. And I would think in this market where there's so much money available some team, we'll we'll give up a decent pick for deformed sign him to a big contract. I think so too. And then you have to they also talked about moving Justin, Houston, potentially. Well, this was a in in many ways, not a good defense last year their pass rush was affected. Like what what are we replacing these people with agree point because juice Houston is supposed to get traded or released over the next week? We think that'll happen will have to wait and see on Ford. But while we're talking tags. Let's let's do a little tag round up here on Monday. We got news of three tags. Evian cloudy gonna be tagged. Donovan Smith of the bucks, they're left tackle tagged and then DeMarcus Lawrence, no surprise. They're not going to get a deal done before the tag deadline, which is Tuesday, and he will be tagged as well. Any thoughts? Gentlemen. Well, the Lawrence and cloudy tags are no brainers and were expected to happen. Donovan Smith that name has been bandied about for last few weeks in Tampa Bay is likely getting the tag in this case, I think the franchise tag actually helps the player he's gonna get paid more than he's worth right? He's gonna make fifteen or sixteen million dollars. He's one of those guys that PF thinks is terrible. And that his own team those guys that Chris whistling watches get right over by speed rushers. Almost every game. I was going to mention he's one of those rare one of those guys that seems to hate like that he's literally one of the worst starters. And that the team is always saying, oh, yeah. We love Donovan Smith. Great. Going to you know, he's terrific. But that when you watch the games, it seems like Jameis Winston is always under pressure from people who are going up against Ottoman Smith. So I don't know what the bucks are seen that. We're not is it just also because if you remove him where he goes somewhere else, you're even that farther up the creek trying to find a left tackle. And they're just not I get it. But like last year when I was doing the cuts list. I was like I wanted to put Donald Smith on it because he was going to get that fifth year option, and it seems like he's not very good at professional football. I think, but I don't know they do on some level still trust like NFL coaching staff. They must know something more that. He's okay. Yeah. I think when you look at what their offense is done the way they've moved the ball, especially between the twenties. I think a lot of things put a high value on a guy who is decent enough that he won't say Taj, the offense single hang in the general manager essentially is bullet proof in Tampa Bay. Right. I mean, it can't be for much longer. I don't know. They did just hire a new coach. I think they Jason lights. Gotta win sooner than later. I was thinking with DeMarcus Lawrence tag today. That's no surprise. But what great twelve months? He said. I went back. I do some journal work sometimes dance, not the only insider on this podcast. And I wish I could bring up. I mean, he's the only like real insider like in terms of media, don't even really. But. Voice memos that I have on my phone saved DeMarcus Lawrence from March thirteenth last year. I went back and listen to it because I thought I remembered he said something which I never did a brain about. And he said they I'm fine plan under the tag. But I'm going to be more expensive next year than I am this year. So they would be served well by signing me to contract this summer. He had no rancor about it. He said I'm going to be more expensive next year than I am right now. I promise you that. And you know, what he is way more expensive now than he was a year ago. Not just because he had a great year. But because they're a tire fire in that front line with Randy Gregory suspended. David Irving now is suspended a middle disappointed that when you pull out your phone and showed us your messages, he pointed to the Marcus Lawrence. I thought for sure we were getting like DeMarcus Lawrence cold you personally to clear somehow. And instead, it's like you tape something on TV. I mean, it's interesting that here he was here. He was here. He was here in the building. Of those like, hey, you wanna go talk to the markets Lawrence for six minutes. So you like a sandwich, and I'm like, yes, you did personally speak to. Yeah. Okay. So so do you ever just play those like late at night to yourself when you can't sleep DeMarcus Lawrence interview segments that you've kept on your phone that's much like when I can't sleep. But just like if I really wanna treat myself like light a candle put music on some I think like Amoco essential oils. Here's your husband talking to a pro football. I think Greg sleeps. Well, I I am a little disturbed when I was looking for the other day went back into lead it everything. The only things I kept. We're DeMarcus Lawrence a couple of things from this last combine having to lead yet. And then an epic performance by Brassey at your house. Chris wesley. I can't lose that. I don't know what that is. But for some reason, I decided to record her publish it. I have a series of brassy videos from several nights at my house Brassey, of course is the social coordinator. Of our entire news operation tie would say, she's recovering from some some sort of hangover. I'm sure the Super Bowl then right into combine for her were from what I gather. There are a lot of high points, but potentially you're paying the price. But I'm gonna I'm gonna keep I'm gonna keep those blackmail. It's gonna be okay. Well, that is the relationship that you and she have. So I think that's good. I mean, like we I was having dinner at the combine with the friend and an Tiffany Blackman, our friend on the network sat down with us and then suddenly some tequila shots just sent over. And it's like, you don't even have to guess who it's from. It's from Shona. I would I would have gone Reggie Bush. But no, he wasn't either one. He wasn't there. All right. Let's move on eagles their team. That's like in the science of contracts. Lotta lotta contract and salary cap issues. These days they brought back Brandon Graham on a huge deal three years forty million. I think twenty plus. The first couple years all guaranteed. They also signed guard Isaac c Malo today and two three year deal. That was a bit of a surprise. And there's a report that Michael Bennett is on the trade bloc. Mark you can take it any direction. You want Graham, see Malo Bennett. It would be surprising. If you went see Malo but zero I mean, I'm not going see them all I think that the benef- thing is just the natural revert to giving thirteen million a year to Graham, who's thirty one Bennett's thirty three Bennett costs another seven million this year. I don't is there a team in worse cap. Hell right now than the eagles. I believe they have the least amount of cash the moment. So they gotta make moves. They have a lot of things. These just have a million things going on. And they're pretty good at being flexible. But you're right. They are about as tight to the cap and having make tough choices any team in the league, parental Graham. Takes one of the better pass rushers off the market. But I think for me the what's the prizes me is. Overall, the coaching changes in scheme changes in Philadelphia for a guy who's never had a double digit sack season. He's a great pass rusher. But most of it is coming on pressure. Not saks. I'm just surprised that he's gonna end up playing entire career with the eagles. Well, you have to be a bad ass to get that third huge contract to get the he signed when he signed that first five year deal. I believe it was with the eagles at the end of his rookie contract. People are like, oh, really you think Brandon Graham is that good that you're gonna give them a five year fifty five million dollars under he made it to the end that like never happens in the NFL. So they evaluated him. Well, and you're right. It's kind of a score for the pressure is almost as valuable as sacks and hits kind of brigade. And I think that brigade I'm just saying, I know that's more value. Now, they're very analytic heavy type of organization, and I think they think he's a bad ass in a guy that kind of like Everson Griffen is very similar in my mind in Minnesota. Just the kind of career is Edwards like national. I'm not that well known but the team that has them thinks he's super and he's also etched into like Philadelphia lower for the strip sack that helped win the Super Bowl and entering. Was it was not right. That's that's a good point. And seems like a great guy like very well known in the community and the locker room and all that sort of stuff or the guy we're going to have on later. Josh Norris from rota world has often said one of his biggest truisms disruption is production show. That's a catchphrase. I mean, that's how you step on a lot of people at the road. World office has become one of the the real big stars. I mean, nor using Norris has gotten to where he is without a little bloodless coup. Probably like some without Sally way showdown with you know, Evan Silva, which would not be an easy take. We saw the big fish, by the way in Indianapolis. Did you know this Mark he'd he's he actually message me soon? After and said sorry that you were not there. I did not go out the final night, we saw the big fish at Saint elmo's the famous they cast that every sports writer talks about and people were blown away. Dan, was just like I didn't wasn't really ready for the size in the stature that Silva's bring into the table. I mean Silva's like so it was like Jason Peters or something when you're over Kevin patrons Bill west. You've you've for a long time knocked this different. That is still this is this is like an NFL left tackle size Petra is in fine shape. And always has been I never would have looked to him as sort of like a paragon of male body. Type. It's always shape. Let's be real. It's always annoyed you a little bit. How much credit Pacha got furs body and even back in the day? You almost were annoyed that he got the credit over like he's like I have. That body now I'd never thought that I credit for my body. I never thought that at all. Now how you feel about it? Now, it's time for some credit. I didn't feel like my body's in great shape up. All right. We are almost to some Combi. Rumors we aren't buying another little like mini segue throwing in here. But finally, Jamie Collins expected to be cut or traded soon. How would you remember the Jamie Collins era marks very underwhelming? And I thought it was they got him for a relatively low acceptable draft pick. And then I think in one of these sort of confirming your own move turn around and overpaid him, but they had a ton of cap space, and they almost were at that place. They needed to reach the cap floor, and they had no names on their defense. And I thought they probably felt like it was the first step towards building that side of the ball in. There have been the thing that I kind of remember most are these sort of whispering jabs at him where you can't tell exactly where it's coming from the people aren't happy with the effort. They aren't. Quite happy with the effort on game day or not on game day. And I don't feel like he fits into where they're going, and they definitely need need help linebacker. But he's I don't think they're going to re up with him. That would be surprising to me. This is one of those. I usually at this point would expect a guy to get traded Michael Bennet. He's six million this year. I think they could find someone to lease to pick. Swap for that. Why not he's still pretty good? But Jamie Collins making ten million. No, I don't think anyone wants to deal with that. I think he's I mean, it was the patriots who were listed as a team that we're open tonight actually trading form lasts. Right. And I think they would probably take Jamie Collins back, but why why start at a twenty two million dollar two year contract. I just don't think that's sort of like value at this point finally an idea Wes here combine rumors. He's not buying. What is the combine? Rumor that's grind in your ears. Started. This wasn't really a rumor someone ask hurt Warner. What he would give up for Josh Rosen. Third round pick. And then Peter King interviewed another NFL executive who said cardinal shouldn't expect to get more than a third round pick for him. And I think this is insane. I think that's crazy for many reasons. Not least of which is the cardinals have already paid sixty five percent of what his rookie deal will be for four years. They've already paid most of it with he's only gonna count two million against your cap every year for the next three years. And you're telling me that teams like the giants Redskins and dolphins who need quarterbacks are saying. Or even the patriots who need a successor successor for Tom Brady or saying, no, I won't go above the ninety something picking the draft for Josh Rosen. I just don't believe that for a second. I mean, it depends what the team is who's drafting him with everyone knowing he's just going to be a long-term backup. Like, you're drafting him to be a starter. If it's the Redskins who would make some sense, you can't you can't possibly tell me that you're going to get Aaron to accept nothing more than the third round pick for that. When you when he is going to be your plug and play. Low cost starter and Peter King. You talked to I think to front office guys and those guys don't want to give up third round pick. That's fine. It only takes one team. You know what I mean? I don't I don't get that. At all. Like, they're also depends what front offices those. We'll also hear all the time GM's who sign guys in free agency. And I think Dante Fowler is is a good case study for this year. Well, we had him ranked really high coming out of college. You always hear this about first round picks and get two free agency and aren't playing well, we really loved his college tape and we loved him. And that's like what there's not a bunch of teams out there that didn't love Josh Rosen's college tape and wouldn't give it up. I would I would I would remain a patriots fan. If if they go pick up Josh roses. This me thinking about checking out as soon as Bella chicken brainier goal. You know that Brady I'll I'll stick. I'll stick it out for Bella check. But I think I might retire with Bill. I mean, how could you top that? It's just like just like you just live through the. Best. Why even bother that's because I thought the definition of a fan is to jump ship the minute things, I won't I won't just over soldier you sunshine. Patriot. What are you doing you? You're you gave up on the on the Bengals I did not give up on them. They gave up on me. That's a here's the thing. I just think mentally it's possible that they just become like one of all the other teams. But it's just like not the same. It is crazy where we even were two weeks ago with this. Josh Rosen story where it was like largely unbelievable that this would even happen. And now it just seems like a foregone conclusion that the cardinals have enough. I mean, that's changed even since we last talked on Thursday. So since then, okay, Kim Jones said the expectation at this point around the league is that the cardinals will take. That's what everyone thinks don't believe this. I don't believe the cardinals have finished do Dylan. That's what made up their mind a bunch of people like DJ and all these people are saying, that's what everyone thinks. But no one really knows. That's. Just like that's not really news necessarily. It's just what everyone thinks the cardinals and then possibly the raiders are thinking as well people. There was a quote that gruden's not much of a poker player in that. It's kind of obvious how much they like Tyler Murray as well. But I think before you know, he two weeks ago he's being mocked to go to the Redskins at fifteen or falling out of the top twenty and stuff. Now, it's like no this guy like every single year a couple of quarterbacks gonna go way higher than people thought initially and Carla Murray has multiple NFL coaches superintendent. Yeah. And I'm with US, by the way, I don't buy that for a second Rosen's twenty one twenty two now. I mean, he came into the league young his tape is not nearly as bad as everyone thinks I promise you, he's he did more as a rookie. Then guys like, you know, golfer Trubisky did in similar situation. I saw enough where I was like, okay. I saw some good things. I'm still on the Josh Rosen trained. So a lot of people who went. Broke trying to guess how good of a gambler other people are. I'm not that confident in anybody's ability to read a gambling. Damn what makes you an expert on reading John gruden's, not you, but anyone what makes you an expert in reading John Gruden gambling. And what makes you think that you're good enough to read it, right? I think he's not just already broken you. I think literal professional gamblers like are probably good at that skill. But I don't think that's who are talking about. Right. I think there are a few people on earth who are really good at. But you're not a fan of the combine west and the combine essentially is like one massive hot stove league session where whispers and rumors and generated news reports are what this part of the football season's. I think it makes for great quote for someone to say John gruden's a bad poker player. I just don't have any confidence in that person's ability to read Jon Gruden poker with the the year ago. We thought the entire raiders offense was going run Turnley through Amari Cooper. So he's built he has an ability to spin yarns that we fall for. That's a great point that you know, who's a great poker player. We found out this week. John Gonzalez calling wolf's husband. And was one so most professional poker player. Seems to have you every time he was on the early early auspices of kind of like the poker professionalism going around. That's like can't you just imagine him with his hat pulled down low at a at a poker table, making people's money man man of many talents. That was a low point in sports television win like every third sports never had like eight Gebran is sitting around a table playing poker for four hours. It was aided every minute. It was a mania. And it was exciting. It was it was a interesting time. I'm not at Greg's. You know, I never I never went was into poker? But when rota world was started way back in the day when we were building a brick by brick this is even pre Wesseling. It was all it was like thirty people all in about three rooms minimum twenty four of them were betting on poker to an insane degree and most of them seem to be making money from including the people who own the this company people were like losing their minds just playing. Online poker all day every day and like stealing money from some poor schlub in Nebraska who signed on for this. It was it was the heyday it was a dark time. And I believe having fun though. I like the spirit of it. I wasn't. I didn't do poker. I think it's accurate that I would never would have moved to Taibbi island. If not for the poker craze that swept the nation between poker? And at the same time when MA is becoming really big and all of my softball. Buddies. Just wanted to sit around watching 'em and playing poker. I got to leave this city. Yeah. There is nothing here. I mean, there are some road. There are some like Christmas Christmas where there were rumors where the rota world was having a little trouble paying the payroll. So as far as I'm concerned poker might a save. This sounds like a toxic vote. You might say might have been the only way that they were still making money paying us. And now look at it today. Is there any other combine rumors that was pretty much mind? So the only one that I thought was absurd just because everyone attached to the Redskins is fighting for. Job right now. And I like McCoy the person I named my son call after Cole McCoy the day that he was essentially replaced by Brandon Weeden being drafted in the first round. But the idea that they're talking of Colt McCoy as the starter to me, that's all that says if all other plans don't work than we have it on paper that were excited about Cole McCoy that cannot honestly be where this team is coming from holistically to fix a quarterback situation. It's just hey, we said it if this is what we wind up with we told you all along we were excited about this. That's to me is just not a rumor, it's just like a it's good. It's good housekeeping. I do believe that Jay Gruden thinks more highly of Colt McCoy than anyone else in the NFL thinks of McCoy. But I also think you cannot you cannot have followed this guy's career and believe that he's gonna stay healthy for more than two or three games broken leg. He's always coming off with something because he always gets hurt. I take them. But he's like he's been in the perfect position as. A backup you hope to use a game of year. Most. I there's like no doubt to me that he's gonna be J gruden's quarterback coach on the twenty twenty six what team is Jay Granville, red spangles. Yeah. That would be the Bengals or or the offense of cornet. He's getting paid Cole McCoy, by the way, three point six million dollars. So that kind of three point three million dollars that shows what they think of I think he's a backup. They think he's the best backup in the NFL or one of the best. That's what. And I think that's fair that any fits Jay Gruden roll out. But then but don't don't conflict it into. He's suddenly our starter. Okay. So that's the news and lot of chunky content. There a lot of a lot to digest, frankly. And before we get to some more real like, nuts and bolts meet in potato football. We're just gonna have a little bit of pout cleanser and something that really doesn't have a name to it. But it's just one minute. Of talking about a memorable sporting event that we witnessed with the back end music of our choice. And and since this was my DEA, just all I can start it. Can't you ready? Let's do it. I haven't heard this. That's nice. All right. I'm gonna go nine hundred eighty eight Foxboro stadium Sullivan stadium. They would call it. Doug Flutie did England Patriots gets the ball in the red zone plate just fell down about four points to a rookie. Chris Chandler of the Indianapolis Colts. Doug, Flutie comes in gosh, who who was replacing a total total bomb. He comes in off the bench to replace Gus Ramsey totem. Leads them to victory on a bootleg the moment. Everyone in Boston was waiting for flew to become the patriots head coach, and that place celebrated like it was a Super Bowl. And I always remember that game. It's one of the only patriots games I've ever been to as a kid. We didn't go off and that seemingly meaningless winds to get to two and three in law season can mean so much to fans in the NFL because that game meant so much to me we ate off that game for about five years. I love them use music choice that minute snuck up quickly. But that's good to know. Yeah. It was good. But. Like, thanks, Tom. Tom rosenthal. Not a huge football guy. More more baseball basketball. But we we loved I loved football and brought me to that. And it's like any way I'm going over my minute here. So sometimes it has to be unpacked further. All right, Mark. Let's go next. All right. So I have seen Michael Jordan play live. I've been to multiple Super Bowl guy's Super Bowls with you guys, which I mean, honestly, those are incredible moments when I really was thinking about one sporting event that changed my life. When I was in college in nineteen Ninety-three I had to sort of. Humorous roundish guide that live next door to me who was like trying to graduate early, but he needed to pass this fencing class he was fencing. And so it was a fencing final where we were gonna. I was gonna watch him in this tournament. The final was turnament and you had to come in like top top up to get a good grade. Otherwise, you're trouble. We went out to eat lunch. And he got on this long wandering story about this girl. He liked on the third floor this unintentionally unimpressive girl, and I was trying to talk about the ledge. But hearing only two seconds. He went to the he went to the fencing class late in the teachers like you're out you get an f you can't be late said, you know, what forget the F. I'll take the, but I'm going to do the tournament and heat knocked out this girl in the first round blew up some long haired during the second round got to the finals and loss. But she basically said, you know, what I love the effort, you get a B minus. So he saved his great. And to me that was one of the things where you could just mope and leave and wander who lesson I'm doing it. I'm fighting this tournament he destroyed these people lessened. This is why I'm glad I left. It wide. Open didn't have to be the greatest sporting event ever win. It's just something memorable level back from the brink. Nobody could have predicted you going to go down that avenue now. No, well, you you gave me a heads up yesterday. So I thought long and hard on a Sunday. No one no one's fencing coming. All right. Wes, we're going back to your app. Same years you Greg nineteen Eighty-eight the reds have a pitching prospect frustrating but talented six five to forty. He looked like a combination of Ralph mouth from the happy days, and Frankenstein. He had red wavy hair. It was receding and he was an ugly. Dude, Pete Rose at nicknamed him the true creature. We just the creature is kids we're at this game because it's the clip kid glove game in Cincinnati the one game year that all the little leaguers get to go to this guy is one pitch away from a perfect game in the ninth inning two outs. Two strikes. Wallace Johnson of the Montreal Expos serves a soft liner into left field breaks up the perfect game in rock rains hit. A two run Homer now. Ron Robinson the creature doesn't even get the finish the game. John Franko has come in for the save Robinson gets traded two years later, two months before the reds win their last World Series that they've ever won. So this song is supposed to be some take up on shattered dreams, Johnny. Okay. Johnny h jazz. The one hit wonder shattered dreams nine hundred eighty eight for the creature. You guys did a much better job than I did. I thought they were all that was that minute. Is that thing may quickly. What was your kind of musical inspiration? Mark just because I loved it. And it was will. I know that our like our libraries a wildcard, but I sort of wanted like medieval into like gallons like a sword fight type thing. I think you didn't ice job can't no I thought it was really it was like fire in me up. I mean, I blew it was Tom Ramsey, by the way, shattered dreams. Tom Ramsey was the quarterback who was the replacement for Steve Grogan. I mean what you couldn't make Flutie the backup. He was a third stringer. Gimme a break whenever you like swords or sorts fights. It's just a lot of metallic clanging. And I figured the medieval stuff worked a little nutty beautiful. Some interesting stories, I think I think we I mean, it doesn't need to be a sporting could be one minute on anything as it happens in may of eighty eight while that game was going on shattered. Dreams was climbing the US. Wow. Qismat also Qismat Josh Norris. He's been watching the combine for how many days is it been probably about ninety six hours straight because that's just like what he does. They have. They have podcast literally every day during the combine at rota world. He's pumping out content. The big fish is now kind of taking it easy during the combine he's making Josh do all the work. Breaking news. We got a little breaking news. At another franchise tag to the mix. Multiple national reporters are reporting that Frank Clark getting the franchise tag from the Seattle Seahawks. Okay. Well, peak Carol over and over and over said he is not leaving the building. Basically all those guys on our top one to one of the top that we thought we're gonna get tagged have Tom Pella CEO and Peter Schrager have confirmed expected to use the franchise. So Landon Collins to me as the only real wild card right now that we don't know which way it's going to go at this point. I'd be very surprised trae flowers did get the tech even though I would support it and think it's a good move. It seems like no one believes that's going to happen. So Landon Collins seems to be kind of the one guy everyone's waiting for. We'll find that out later in the week. But before waiting any longer, I gave him the big preamble. Let's get the judge Moore's. Josh what's going on, man? I'm doing great. We're on. You are on with the around the NFL podcast. I think we're just going to jump right into it. I don't need to give the flowery preamble any longer. I already talked you up enough. How you've stepped over so many people at rota world to get to the position that you're in and now trying to push Evan Silva side. I admire the hustle. Hopefully guys, this doesn't turn into something. Like, my parents, call me at nine thirty pm asked me how to work there, a remote control for the television talk. I thought testing with you. What does that mean that they're going to try to listen to this podcast? I don't I don't quite file. No, no, as they don't understand, you know, updated modern. Oh, and we don't and you're saying as simpleton don't understand what's going on with the test. Now, you're pretty much right? I mean, the title of this segment is combine takeaways. We don't have a strong grasp on Josh Nora stunts, your with with Chris Wesseling and Mark Cecil as well. Josh. Hey, Josh, whatever trio I was just telling all of our listeners that disruption equals production. Is that a judge Norris original? It is I it was much Debbie uncloudy article back in the day back when you know, he was getting knocked for his sacks. And I'm sure you guys talk about that all the time. How sexually aren't the Indo be all, but we. We're talking about Brandon Brandon Graham's new deal that he's a disruption equals production guy. They were go and back at South Carolina clowney like he was the only one getting four yards in the backfield. The quarterback could just move around and avoid his his lines the quarterback. So that's where it's Russian equals production. Wow. It's great to get the etymology here. Very the creator himself. Yeah. I don't know what you think we're going to talk about here. Josh because I did ask you. Hey, is there any names? You wanna you wanna talk about before the show, and then you sent me like a four part. Breakdown of why the the measurements that you use superior to the ones that are often talked about, and frankly it went over my head. I just kind of wanted to hear like well at the combine or not like pretend like you're speaking to total simpleton, I just wanna know like oh as well. Pretend like Rashawn Gerry. Like, what do you think about Rashawn, Gary? Aren't you a little worried he didn't produce it all after watching? There's only a handful of times in my life. I'll be able to talk to the hero. So I I would try to put my best step forward. My best full word, and and do my best in this regard. So okay. Well, you're off to a great start. Can I ask about some specific? I I think the best way to start this conversation, but I kind of take control here. Greg. As to kind of explain why in my opinion, the come by matters. Like why that's the matter. Okay. Because back in before like twenty fifteen I didn't think it mattered at all. But because it's kind of how the combine is is broadcast and some ways where for four days, it's you know, forty yard dashes and their position drills. Right. So we all kind of equate athleticism to a forty yard dash when really there's six or seven other tests that can be factored into someone's f- at profile, right? And then combine that with weight because there's a major difference, and you know, one hundred eighty four pound receiver running a four four five versus two hundred twenty five receiver running a four four five. Right, right. I'm kinda gives you a composite score. And that composite score allows you to compare across decades and across players at the same position as well. So who like who stuck out? Who is like towards the top of the draft, for instance, to use your example, actually, decay Metcalf. Everyone was talking about his performances weekend. But then I saw like a no about how his three cone drill was actually worse than Tom. Brady's three cone drill that here is the most athletic amazing freak you've ever seen. But actually in this in this measurement. He was worse than two thousand Tom Brady. So how what do you? How do you put that all together? What's your take away from other? Yeah. And let me first say that at least for me evalu-, like watching games is the most important piece of evaluation. But if we can just like add tools toolbox to hopefully, improve valuations hit on players at multiple days of the draft. That's the only goal here with PK Metcalf is interesting because you mentioned it like his forty was outstanding his jumps were amazing forty and a half inch Vert over eleven foot for all jump at two hundred twenty eight pounds. But then like his. Cohn was in the fifth percentile short- shorter was in like third percentile if we can go back and kind of look at players that were somewhat similar in. That regard a Stephen hill. Pops out a Greg Childs pops out I'm not necessarily going to Kevin white in that regard. But you go back and look at old miss. It was a somewhat similar offense. Kevin white ran back at West Virginia. Whereas he was locked into one side of the field. Everything was run on that kind of linear plane straight lines outside break outs off of that. And so it's not that type of offense where you see him run all the routes to everything across the formation lineup in different areas of the field. And so that would give you pause, but obviously as a little bit I mean, but he has huge muscles. So can we just sort of wipe all this away and just civil draft him like thirteen wasn't child tour, both patellar tendons. Yeah. I do. I do think it is important to note here, though, that like testing can also help you determine if what you saw in games is actually something that actually, okay. Because I mean, I don't know about y'all, but my eyes lighter me at points like going back to Jarvis Jones, for example. Actually. Yeah. We we know that Jarvis Jones led the SEC facts during his final year, Georgia. I mean, he was an outstanding player. They're right. Former Steelers first round pick. There we go and actually when he went through his athletic testing, Jarvis Jones tested like the worst first round pick of all time. Okay. Since it's been tracked like in the bottom, tenth percentile. Okay. And as we have known and seen service Jones have very long career. So just because the production was there part of that in especially those edge rusher defensive lineman like to me, that's where f autism is most significant, right? Like, it's of the true one on one match ups on the NFL Plainfield, and so at the very least simplest form wouldn't f-. Whether it could vantage give you a step up on your opponent. And Jarvis Jones was even average in. That regard averages fine. He was well below average. And in many ways staying away from non NFL caliber, athletes, it's how we should use testing. Let me ask you the flip side of this. So guys like Montas sweat who just have one of the best combines ever for a defensive end slash edge rusher. And respond Gary who had very good combine both are being sort of criticized for not being quite as good on the field or for having game tape. I know sweat. I believe was ranked in the eighties by PF. Where would where would these guys fall for you like do you have faith in them? Yes. And my bias again as I mentioned towards edge rushers interior defensive linemen with athleticism. I think maybe the best example in previous years was the no hunter. And I think part of it kind of comes down to the type of coaching. They get once they reach the NFL. Hunter was an Absolute Auto pass rusher in college LSU, who's a great run defender when he goes, and it's one of the best athletes Clarisa draft in the third round and has become one of the best edge rushers in the league, in my opinion. Do I think that Sean Gary Montas sweat have that potential? Sure, it big part of that is obviously the system and situation that they land in but with sweat. He someone that can get up the field in a hurry. I mean that matches accessories I two or three steps are are outstanding. And when you know when you say, those heavy footed off tackles, it can be fairly easy to run pass them. Now does he have that been my von Miller? No. But again, if I'm trying to invest in a I. Round edge rusher or first round injured you vitamin the Goethe's get after the quarterback match up. Yeah. I absolutely loved them to have a superior in these cases, the ninetieth ninety four th percentile of profile. Is there like can. I just saved a quarterbacks for a second. Because you're really don't. I'm not able to do much more at the combine like hopefully, see the quarterbacks for a couple of seconds. The rest of it is white Hayes. And then I catch up with it later. But when it comes to outside of the Kylo Murray is there a quarterback. That's caught your eye that you feel like is going to be someone that could surprise everyone. Or is that not the case, which is fine. Also, well, as we know like if a quarterback taken outside of round one, there's really very little hope for them in general. I mean, it's true. Yeah. I mean, it's not you can point to various little absolutely true. Yeah. I mean exception rather than the rule that's fair. But there's a caption approves the rules, plenty of decent second thirds out there. I mean, they're out really like there have been throughout history. Russell Wilson current. I'm counting. Like Andy Dalton to me is a draft hit. If you got a if you've got a guy who starts that many games in the second round or cabinet for that. Bengals fan. But yeah, you know, what I'm saying though, like those guys matter and those those aren't those weren't first round picks. But I hear you especially in today's NFL doesn't seem to happen to write kind of Garoppolo. If you if you wanna stay in those situations, right? And like don't want to improve off of them right now with that said, I will go to someone that is not going to be taken in the first round. And I'll go to eastern stick out of North Dakota state. We all know that that's a system that Carson Wentz came out of and eastern Randy exact same one. So if you go great name went, and yeah, right. Should be hockey player named after a baseball bat. Is they go. And if you have watched wins back in his college days, you saw everything was under center. A lot of things that are shotgun all play action moving out of structure instead of structure east and stick to do all that. Now, he did not have a good east west shrine week. But to me like stick is someone look if there's like a Taylor heineke out there as a backup quarterback in the league. If like Alex Pani is a backup quarterback league. It makes. That someone like, yeah. Right eastern stickshift easily backup quarterback and leading a lot of fun to go and watch those YouTube clips if you want I like it I'm all over the east and stick. Scenario. I'm gonna track that seventy that's the name of Mark's Nexen finally Stanley Morgan junior, you know, candy live up to the name that was the name of like my fantasy football team for years and years. It was just like Stanley Morgan. So like candy live up to that. What are your thoughts? Is is this the wide receiver out of Nebraska? That's right. That's right. His his dad is one of the great speedsters patriot's history. All right, Greg. I knowing what I don't know. And I'm just going to tell you I know very little about standing morte didn't make. Homework. I can make a big eighty thousand even very good athlete. Underhand thirds damning mortgage. There's a player I really want to know about. I have a buddy who goes by the name spice rack who is a big college football fan, and you know, fancies himself as a bit of a dress draft expert himself and during the season he told me that I am going to fall in love with little Jordan Humphry, Texas. He said he's just a big play maker this dude ran a four seven five at the combine, please tell me why my friend talked him up so much and is he in NFL wide receiver. Yeah. I've no idea. He didn't fall even with that four seven five you didn't fall into that. Like, non NFL caliber athlete territory. But if we're talking about players, you could she should get excited about it. Six four over two hundred pounds. He's certainly not the top of that list in this group like kind of massive wide receivers. There are a lot of fun instead of wasting your time and watching little John Humphrey. Or whatever his name is Jordan, which I think is a great name. He's not. I mean, Michael Jordan in Spicer ex defense. He is standing on the table for Dwayne Haskins. Not that he's the only person in the world that's doing that right now. But it is is convinced Hassans is going to be like the next or one of the next great of your time with Mr. Jordan. I would watch came Butler out of Iowa leaf. This is a Superfund player. Like you look at big wide receivers six five two hundred and twenty pounds. And like naturally think you think that you can do out Sean Jeffrey type stuff right just or at least Baldwin catches. Right. But what ki- Butler does he shows you elements of small game as well. Like, you turn that I will game and in like a fourth down scenario. He wants he runs a whip out along the sideline creates instant seperation like getting low his brakes creating that space. And that's just not something you see out of receivers out of a size. We're gonna hold discussion about him and drops. But like that's an overage discussion as well. But yeah, definitely go in watching you're likely. See I'm sorry. Josh for throwing you that Stanley Morgan curveball here. But otherwise, I think you knocked it out of the park. I think if people did happen to just like miss the previous four days and thirty two hours of coverage. We had on NFL. I think the last fifteen minutes probably made it up for you. I mean, I think we've covered covered it. We have ever if I can just plug my own podcast. I already did. Josh don't you worry about it? Well, I'll have the fuel full combine recap on there. If you want to you know, if we've missed anything lasted match, which you know might not have happened. No grind in six days in a row with podcast anyone here know about that. What I wanted you on. Josh does an awesome job with with the really kind of cavalcade of stars that you have run through that show. Josh smart. He's kind of the main one, and then the rest just rotate, so everyone knows who's the most employees. He's. Sun, and they're the plan. Right. And so different guys come on different days. And all that. And it is really good rota world football podcast. They started it. Too late, but they've made up for ground. I know you were pushing for it for years before they let you start it. That's the only reason why I'm saying there's no money in podcasting. Right. Except for us. We're just drowning in it. Yeah. Drowning in all right? Thanks, josh. Thank you. All right. So that was Josh. And before we go, we do have one last item of breaking news. We got three items of bringing that's what west. Ahead on six. Well, first of all this better be real the falcons in nounce that they are franchise tagging, Grady, Grady, defensive tackle. Yep. Adam Schefter has been told that CJ Moseley will not be franchise tag by the Baltimore Ravens. And rap sheet is reporting that Landon Collins is not expected to draw the franchise tag from the giants. Wow. I. It we we forecast that before anyone. The Landon Collins news chain west got another one grab sheets. The wording is the giants are viewed as unlikely. Okay. Well, we got twenty four hours. So at this point, he's he's probably not getting the tag. He's going to get very close to the top of our rankings Grady Jarrett. That's no surprise. He was ranked number three player overall. So that is no surprise the top one hundred list in it's a wonderful thing. But then it's like immediately burned to a crisp like the only name value products on the entire thing or held by their own teams. No, I mean. Yeah. You know, most of them are gonna go, but we're going to be on your, right? The top is now going to be lady on bell. Earl Thomas tree flowers. Foles? Landon Collins Collins, I mean, we've had much worse years at the top put it that way a year where it was like Maliki Jackson, and then like collect assembly or something one that our timing of the release and updates is suspect. That maybe we should wait until after the franchise tags and before we do this. Now people wanna know they wanna start thinking it's all about the page. They're getting more. I mean, right. You're saying for the. In for the absent the page views. Yeah. Like the top ten guys on your list every year or generally the top two guys. Right. Well, it's a good discussion and CJ I had reboot the entire project and give it to to other people. Mark Moseley Moseley interesting. He's the one that I think they really wanna keep them. And it's a rare case, I think they if I had to guess, I bet they still will find a way to keep them. Even though they're not going to tag them. They just don't want to start the discussions at fifteen million a year. Right. I don't blame him for it inside linebacker. Maybe the Browns of steel I don't know why just feels thought and they just kills a guy who's just going to come in and improve the culture and make your opponent in the end to their season with an interception. So. Help them out. It all comes back around on Wednesday. We will be back. We have a Twitter show early this week. I believe it's Aaron early unless unless we're pre-tape in it is airing at ten thirty Pacific one thirty eastern time. And then we are taping the podcast after that. We will also be back with the podcast Friday morning. Dan will be back on Wednesday. For cecil. The quiet storm Chris Wesseling. Mailman? That's it can't Brown. Josh north. Evan Silva, everyone. We'll see a Wednesday.
BGN Radio #77: Special Guest Kevin Harlan
"Hi this is jim from the step over the radio ballers podcast talking seventy sixers tune in this off season. Season is my co host. Maximize talk next steps and solar recovered from sixers raptors game seven over a span of many many months were listened back to old episodes and make fun of how wrong we were it to be confident only on the nation podcast network you're listening to b._t. And radio why would you listen to any other eagles with john stolnis orbis and brandon hello bleeding green nation and welcome back to b._g._n. Radio this is episode number seventy eighty seven. I'm john stolnis from leading green nation dot com you can follow me on twitter at john stolnis <hes>. This is a special podcast that we're doing here for today yeah because <hes> we don't have on the podcast. I had the opportunity to speak to one of my colleagues at westwood one. Many of you know that that's my full-time. Gig is working ed westwood one and of course westwood. One sports does most of the n._f._l. Contests including the playoff games and the super bowl and the voice that you probably most recognize nyanza in association with westwood. One sports is the great kevin harlan. They're the number one play by play guy for westwood one sports and the guy who has done all of the super bowl's basically from the last decade gate night a chance to talk to him about the upcoming two thousand nine hundred nine season so we'll get to that in just a minute and i'm going to have some philadelphia eagles over unders for you coming up in just a few minutes. It's as well but first. Let's get to the interview that i did with kevin harland. I was good enough to take about twenty minutes to to chat with me about <hes> the andrew luck stuff and what's going. Maybe coming up here for the two thousand nineteen season around the league and we talked a little philadelphia eagles stuff as well so check it out well. Kevin harlan is one of the country's most prolific play by play man on both on tv and the radio broadcasts n._f._l. And college basketball for c._b._s. Does play by play for the n._b._a. On t._n._t. And with the n._f._l. Season a little over a week away is gearing gearing up his duties as westwood one's lead announcer for monday night. Football also called nine street super bowls for westwood one second most in radio network history behind jack buck seventeen. That's right around the corner for you isn't a kevin feels like yeah you know i we all <hes> aimed toward the big game this year. It'll be in miami it really it's such a nice way to tie up what is a long but incredibly joyous right through the n._f._l. Schedule and i think all of us that are involved in broadcasting n._f._l. Games whether on radio or t._v. Enjoy every second of it and feel very privileged. Yeah i mean the and to do the super bowl. I imagine has to be surreal each and every year you get a chance to do it. You've you've done the last nine of them. Do you have a favorite super bowl or or one. That's more memorable than the others well. They're all great. They've all got some kind of special place in my memory feel incredibly honored to be in that seat with that headset on and just mentioned jack brock who i grew up listening to and i got so much respect for all the broadcasters that have broadcast super bowls whether on radio or television so is it is an incredible honor is big enough to really as you could have is football broadcaster but last couple is involved some very unique situations with the patriots hits in particular winning two of them coming back from a twenty eight three deficit in the second half to atlanta and winning that game in overtime and then the <hes> the great play by malcolm butler for the patriots to intercept any russell wilson pass at the goal line is the seahawks are moving in and the patriots it's and and just sneer that victory out of seattle's grasp and give it again to new england. You know what we're seeing. What the patriots there's something so historic probably the best ever head coach perhaps the best ever quarterback and so it makes it in an incredibly notable unique situation wonderfully compelling to watch them do it with such consistency every year but two of my biggest memories are those chew involving the same teams in quarterback and coach. I'm gonna ask you about the patriots a little bit more in just a second but as a as an eagles fan super bowl fifty to to your calls in that game were extremely memorable for for all of us who who root for root for philly and <hes> obviously i think you had the of all the people of all the calls. I heard that you hands hands down had the best call of the philly special. I mean i got imagine. That was a surreal moment. Calling netplay something. I play we don't we haven't really ever seen in the in the super bowl before well well you're right and it was full of creativity and trickery and miss <hes> misdirection at all the elements that can make an n._f._l. Place okay so enjoyable and with the stage so big and the light so bright you know for them to call that play at that time was very unique and and as a play by play guy in radio. You're always trying to connect the dots because you're thinking of your listener at all times right so when you think eight a. b. a._b._c.'s c._d. Then d. backed away again. You know you're thinking wow you know. Hopefully that came out okay and and and so as i recall my expression of you know what did we just see well. It was very organic and like like god. I hope i called that right. That's what i probably wanted to say but it was such a great play in so well can see you see you. Don't forget something like that for sure. Let's talk about the the season coming up here. Kevin evan and i think the story of the preseason so far is obviously the shocking retirement of andrew luck. I mean i was just sitting at home with my father was visiting visiting us and i couldn't believe it when that news came down where where were you when the luck news was breaking and what's your reaction to one of the more shocking retirements we've ever ever seen in the n._f._l. Well i was it was a saturday night and i was <hes> with some friends my wife and some friends on a boat in a <hes> very <hes> secluded cove on lake michigan and we were cooking dinner in the back of this boat and <hes> they had a t._v. veon <hes> and they were able to carry the florida miami game and of course at the bottom of the screen just happened to catch breaking news and and saw that and they go what surely that can't be right and then you know as you look at your phone. Now you see adam schefter breaking the report for seat for e._s._p._n. E._s._p._n. and you're just you're just taking back by you know what that means and what it represents and truly one of the best five quarterbacks in pro football before his thirtieth birthday in saying he's finished. I mean it was just it was shocking and i can't recall anything that earth shattering in a long time time so that really took. I think everybody off guard. Yes especially for a quarterback we may i think neil lomax might be the closest comparison for a quarterback who hung it up early but i mean he had eh degenerative hip condition so that's quite a different thing than a guy who yes has been dealing with a lot of nagging injuries and i i thought it was interesting in in comparison to rob abg gronkowski held a news conference earlier this week where he was talking about a a cannabis oil company that he's working with the the part that i took away from that was he was asked about coming back to the patriots and he's surprisingly retired before the season wasn't as surprising obviously as luck but you know gronk was talking about the toll that the injuries have taken on on him that he just wasn't able to have any kind of quality of life and it seems like that's the story for luck as well and i i wonder your thoughts about whether or not this is kind of a dangerous time for the n._f._l. So as they've lost two of their biggest stars because it just hurt too much to play this game. What are your thoughts on where the n._f._l. Is right now with regard to these two retirements in what these guys are talking about and dealing with pain well. I applaud the n._f._l. For the way they have met this head on and tried to change the narrative the culture with injuries and diagnosis and safety. I mean everything the n._f._l. Does now from rules do equipment deals with safety now in any any sport. There are inherent issues whether you're playing tennis if you're competitive swimming or if you're playing college or pro football i mean there. Are it just that physical activity is going to spawn issues with your body and these are two guys who happened to get get the most out of their performance out of their athleticism at a very young age but their bodies were breaking down a lot of bodies. Don't write down aaron rodgers. Tom brady drew brees. I mean the names go on and on so for as many stories as we see like this in the most publicized sport in in our country there are other stories about guys that have taken necks of comeback is persevered and decided to continue playing so it seems like the stories that these two individuals have cast draw these gigantic headlines whereas we need to balance the story and say they they are just as many older players in a very aggressive sport that have decided that they are going to <hes> continue playing and are able to manage manage the pain and the injuries so as with every story. There are two sides but certainly this jarring for the n._f._l. To see two very very headline players call it quits at a at a young age. Now gronkowski is headed to the hall of fame and there's no doubt but with look i don't know that his his body of work wouldn't necessarily guarantee him a spot in can't and he knows that is he retires and gives up that as well as hundreds took millions of dollars perhaps that that could have come his way eddie played deep into his thirties like breeze and brady and rogers. Yeah you know you mentioned brady. The at the at the top and the new england patriots really is remarkable the fact that he is still going that he misses so little time and that he's still playing at the top of his game and i just wonder with gronk out out now out of the picture and and brady another year older at some point one would think on unless unless brady is a machine that at some point this run by the patriots is going to end. Do you think it could be this year that somebody's able to take down new england and and the dynasty starts to fold up the shop rally. Are we kinda. See that every year about them. Because how long can this go along right. I mean it's shocking and the consistency is unrivalled in pro football history. I mean we're just seeing something. That's never taken place so <hes> we say that every year but we're dealing with the the cleverest the most skilled the best head coach in pro football history who is manipulating the drafting process of the patriots their roster their schedule schedule in terms of how they prepare each and every week <hes> they lose great assistance. The attrition on his staff has been notable yet. They come back every every year with with more and that to me is the sign. Sometimes it's not getting to that peak and achieving that success excess. It's maintaining the level. Which is the most amazing i opening to me so i would never cut the patriots short. Brady may not have have the biggest hand their success but he is certainly in that first sentence of all their success others kind of stepped to the fore <hes> somebody nobody puts in a magical performance and you need that if you're gonna win a super bowl regardless of team but it usually ends up with brady having a pretty big hand and their success listen to me. That's historic. It's it's it's about as as wonderful as story that that any reporter could cover in this n._f._l. Who in the a._f._c. he is new england was to go down. Do you think has the best chance of taking them out. Where like you know kansas. City is obviously with mahomes the reigning m._v._p. <hes> very very explosive offense an improved by the people they've added i would say the steelers are constantly in that conversation and then there's always a dark horse whereas the team you don't expect and and who knows where that might come from but <hes> certainly the cold for in that conversation i think until luck decided to retire tire so it does open up the a._f._c. for sure but but i really think that <hes> <hes> there's going to be that team that we're not even mentioning right now. Aside from the headline teams like kansas city pittsburgh in the chargers there will step up and and certainly make a stab at over in the n._f._c. kevin. What am i big predictions for the years that i think the the rams take a big step backward. I think you know those teams that lose the super bowl. There tends to be that hangover effect the following year. It's remarkable the number of teams that lose the super bowl and either fail to make it back to the play offs or basically scraping and get a wildcard. I've got concerns about todd girlies health. I'm not sold on on jared goff do you do you see the rams as as the favorites in that conference to get back to the super bowl or or is there another team you think has a chance to knock them out of their place place. Well i do like the rams. I think they've got a innovative coach. <hes> thinks through these this is all these coaches do right yeah i just think he is kind of a different way of approaching camp and off season and personnel and relationships with his players and getting their minds right <hes> <hes> sean mcvay is a gifted young coach is much like bella. Check is any young coach in the n._f._l. Right now and and does things it's kind of outside the box and i think that that type of attitude with a team that i felt you know even last year had so much ahead of it certainly has gotta be you know and that final couple of weeks of the season i think with drew brees in new orleans again you're looking at a at a quarterback who has willed his team and franchise with a very innovative coach to to continually be in that conversation and then and then i think dallas i think dallas is about as strong as they've been in many years. I would dare say that. The cowboys may have as good a team right now evening in even without ezekiel elliott as they did back in the nineties when they were really champions or the n._f._l. I think the cowboys are incredibly incredibly strong and really a team to watch so why the a._f._c. I think there are many possibilities here. There's no shoe in each conference inference. I think it will be wide open even with these teams i've talked about. There's always that team that surprises and shocks. I really think we'll see that in both conferences inches this year your comments on the cowboys. They hurt me kevin as an eagles fan. Obviously you know we we have some disdain for that. Particular ball club club and you know i was gonna ask i i was wondering about you know with zeke elliot and the hold out playing out there and a lot of conversations dak prescott going to get his extension and there's amari cooper who is in the last year of his deal new traded a first round pick to get him. You know whether or not these contracts situations going on in dallas would affect their play on the field but judging by your comments just now. You don't seem to think that'll be the case. I don't think they know they're going to get paid. I think you know it's up to the cowboys obviously to work it out but there are there are too many dollars on the table to be ignored and if the reports are true that elliot will become the second highest paid running back back in the league at a position that is diminishing in value it seems although remains i believe baltra important in an offense and if if the act prescott can look perhaps not a hometown discount but can realize that his salary cannot paralyse that team what they can and do around him and if amari cooper knows that he has a new lease on life but being traded from the raiders to the cowboys if there'd be just a little semblance of logic and trust. I think they'd all find themselves. Well paid in a position to win with the most celebrated franchise and pro football so so i i i i would like to think that that they will come to some kind of an accord with all three of those young players realizing they're really on the the cusp of some great things. They've symbol the team. It's kind of in place <hes> they're ready to go. They just need to get some things dotted and crossed and i. I think it'll happen sooner than later. Actually those three kevin couple of quick things and then i'll let you go. I just wanted to ask you a couple of questions about the eagles before we before we finish up here and obviously all all of our eyes are on carson wentz. I think he's the key to this this team getting back to where it wants to get. Which is of course the super bowl. What do you think wentz needs to do here this season reason to get back to where he was. When i think everyone agrees he would have won the m._v._p. Award in two thousand seventeen had he not gotten hurt true and i just think he needs to who <hes> reclaim that same feel of his game. <hes> it is very obvious is it is with any a._c._l. Bologna that it takes more than a year there are the outliers like adrian peterson's but did he come back to early after eight nine months. You know people continually ask that question so i i would give whence kind of a pass on what happened last year and say that that this year he comes back the same quarterback he was when when they went to the super bowl and foles took over and let them do a championship <hes>. I i think the the money they're paying him the new contract extension. I think all that makes total sense. He has every box checked for what you want in a quarterback. I think that roseman is built around him. Well i believe in the a franchise i just think that there there are teams right now rams and cowboys in particular saints because the breeze and not not even putting green bay and that conversation chicago is a natural. They're going to cannibalize each other in the division. I i just i just i would put philly with with green n._b._a. In chicago chicago than the packers is a team that could really come up and make a statement but i just think a couple of things. We've got to kind of click their way a <hes> for that to happen i just i think they've got everything that we saw a couple of years ago. I just think the quarterback needs to find his game again and i really believe he will end. The best is ahead for the eagles. <hes> i love their coach. <hes> doug is as show many can call plays be innovative. Stay with the latest trends he can coach quarterbacks in roseman has shown that he can draft. He consigned guys off the street. He can put together a roster so i don't mean <hes> <hes> the mission of putting them at one of the top two or three teams is not by design. It's by feel at this time making change the narrative very quickly in that absolutely well listen kevin. I know you've got a busy schedule in front of you. You call the green bay packers preseason games as well and you've got a full slate of n._f._l.

And radio so before we wrap up it's always interesting i think at the beginning of the year and look at some of the vegas oddsmakers over unders because vegas has a pretty good handle on on this kind of stuff they're not always right but they really know what they're doing when they set these over under a lot of them you really have to think about there not because you can talk yourself into one one or the other and so let's start off with carson wentz because i thought a couple of carson wentz is over unders. Were very interesting. They have his over under three thousand five hundred yards passing passing for the season now. Let's take this into context. E pass for three thousand seven hundred eighty two yards in his rookie season so in his only the full season that he played his rookie year. He went over thirty five hundred yards. He had three thousand two hundred ninety six yards so he fell about two hundred yards short in two thousand seventeen seventeen but he missed the last three games of that season so last year he also came a little bit short but again he only played and i think it was eleven games last season so i believe that this is number is totally dependent on carson winston healthy carson wednesdays healthy key sales past three thousand five hundred dollars easy. I think he approaches four thousand yards this hear more than likely and so yes. I think carson wentz is going to be healthy this year. I don't think he's gonna miss many games. If any games at all maybe that's just a optimism them and and hope on my part but why would i go into the season thinking that a quarterback is going to miss a certain amount of games. I don't go into any season expecting a quarterback to miss any games. If it happens it happens but i don't think you can go into the season planning on losing a guy for three or four games and so i think if he plays a full season yes i think he's sales past three thousand five hundred yards and i think there's a good chance that even if he misses a game or two he's still probably clears three thousand five hundred yards so i think that's an easy over for me. Total touchdown passes for carson wentz this year they have it set at twenty nine and a half again. I think that's a low number. I think jordan howard may vulture if you go line touchdowns here and there but but i think the eagles are still going to throw the ball a lot around the goal line and i think i think he easily gets into the thirties again because he i think he's going to stay healthy so carson. Wentz going over thirty five hundred yards passing going over twenty nine and a half yards twenty nine and a half touchdowns and then how many games will carson wentz start in the two thousand nineteen regular season the over under is at fourteen and a half now. That's basically saying if if you expect carson wentz to myth miss two games than he's as you gotta take the under on that two games not much a lot of times quarterbacks missed two games during the course of a season but i don't think that's going to be carson wentz this year. I really don't i. I really think if he misses a game. Maybe it's late in the season when they don't really need them but i think carson wentz makes fifteen starts this year. At least i would take the over over on carson. Wentz starts at fourteen and a half. I might be in the minority on that one because i know in the last two years he hasn't he hasn't gotten to fourteen. Let alone fourteen and a half but i'm going to go on the optimistic side and i'm gonna take the over on carson. Wentz starts at fourteen and a half but i do think that is a fascinating number. Jordan howard total rushing yards in the two thousand nineteen regular season seven hundred fifty and they have miles sanders at six hundred fifty. I think i might even reverse those numbers. I would take the under for howard and i would probably take the over for mile sanders on six hundred fifty yards but it really is going to be interesting to see how this running back situation relation shakes out because i you know we haven't seen much of jordan howard here. In the preseason. We have seen a fair amount of of mile sanders. We haven't seen a ton but what we've seen is impressive with him running the ball. He's clearly there most dynamic runner but jordan howard is going to get a volume of carries. I would think he's probably going to get fifteen carries. A game will mile sanders. I get the number of carries. The jordan howard gets he might not but mile sanders might do more with those carries. This might be more of an even split seven hundred seven hundred. I can see jordan howard finishing with way more touchdowns than miles sanders because i think jordan howard it's gonna be the guy they use at the goal line but this this one is tricky. I would stay away from. I'm anything having to do with eagles running backs this year whether you're playing fantasy a fantasy football whether you're betting over under here on these i just would stay away from from the eagles running back situation until we get a little bit of a clear picture how this is all going to shake out because i i really don't know how they're going to put out the distribution. When you looked at the garrett blunt jay ajayi in two thousand seventeen it was it was a pretty even split and you know when you look at these two running backs. They're kind of comparable. I don't think that howard is as forceful as blunt was but blunt was the short yardage guy the goal line guy. I think that's going to be jordan howard role. The first down guy mile sanders is going to be the guy who's the shifty speedy guy like ajayi was. I think howard probably i mean miles. Sanders probably has more chance to break off. Those long runs that the team was missing last year. I don't think jordan's ripping off any fifty or sixty yard runs whereas i think miles sanders you could see him do that a few times this year and that's a cheap way to get a bunch of yardage without a whole lot of carries so oh i'm i would stay under from these numb. I would stay away from these numbers. Pardon me but if i had to choose i would probably take the under for jordan howard under seven fifty and i would probably take the over for mile sanders at six fifty looking at the receivers <hes> the top two receivers on the team sean jeffrey into sean jackson looking at their receiving yards they have jeffries receiving yards at nine hundred and they have to sean jackson's receiving yards at seven hundred now. Alshon jeffery hasn't reached nine hundred yards receiving in a season since two thousand fourteen when he went over a thousand. I don't think this is the year that changes so i'm gonna take the under on alshon jeffery going in over nine hundred yards receiving i mean it's been since two thousand fourteen that he's done this now. Sean jackson on the other hand and just ten starts last year had seven hundred seventy. I four yards so clearly more than the seven hundred and again he he only started ten games last year and still win over seven hundred yards so i'm taking the over onto sean jackson he's shown that with his big play ability with the way he can get down the field and get those seventy yard touchdown catches eighty touchdown catches. He like sanders. I think we'll have the opportunity unity to pile up a bunch of yards on relatively few catches during the course of a game or a season so i'm taking the over onto sean jackson at seven hundred yards receiving on the season. I'm taking the under on alshon jeffery at nine hundred yards and i don't think any receiver gets a thousand yards simply because this team is going to go to a bunch of two tight handsets this year. I think that is going to be that is going to be a thing that happens that. I think if you're talking about an interesting over under an interesting over under is the percentage of snaps dallas guttered is going to play this year at the end of the season last year when they went heavy in twelve personnel dallas goddard played more than half the snaps so that might be the line i said at for for for dallas god or does he play in fifty point one or forty nine point nine percents of the snaps. I think it's i think it's going to be hard for him to get that many when you have when you still have nelson aguilar and j._j. Are single whiteside that you want to get some touches to. I think it's going to be tough for dallas goddard to get that many snaps but we saw how successful this team was last year when they did go to twelve personnel so i would take the under on dallas qatar getting half the snaps this year like he did over the last. Was it five games season. I think when he was over fifty percent but it'll be interesting to see how they utilize all these. That's one of my questions coming into the season. How are they gonna utilize all these different guys as we got. They've got so much talent on this team. That's a lot of mouths to feed as well so we'll see how they do and it's goes for the touchdowns as well. The over under for alshon on jeffrey touchdowns is six and a half this year and four four desha jackson. I will take the over on jeffrey with touchdowns. I think jeffrey is gonna to be a guy. They can find a lot close to the end zone. He's obviously not going to score any long. Touchdowns are not gonna score many long touchdowns this year. I wouldn't think just the connection that he has with carson. Wentz isn't the same that it was with nick foles and i hope that they have been working on that a little bit this offseason. It sounds like in training camp that there may be was starting starting to be a little bit of a connection between wentz and alshon jeffery but we got to see it in the regular season. We didn't really see it a whole lot in two thousand seventeen as evidenced by the fact that he didn't rack up all that many yardage into all that much yardage in two thousand seventeen but we know that jeffrey can get the ball in the endzone. We've seen him score touchdowns and so i think six and a half is a low number. I'm gonna take the over on alshon jeffery just because he is a guy that i think will be valuable inside the twenty and we've seen him be able to use his body to shield to a shield other defenders away from the football and for him to be able to get up to the highest point and bring it down as far as the sean jackson goes he's going to be reliant on breaking short plays plays into big runs or hitting the bomb you know are they going to be able to do that more than four times this year maybe but i think if i have to choose the over-under on touchdowns for sean jackson. I'm probably taking the under no. I'll take the over. I think both these guys will achieve the over on touchdown throws for saying the over. That's at least seven for jaffrey jeffrey and that's at least five for sean. That's twelve touchdowns and if we're talking yeah we're talking thirty five to forty touchdowns for carson wentz. That sounds about right to me so i'll take the over over on both guys for touchdowns. I think those numbers are a little bit low. We're looking at the tight ends now. Zakar it's total receptions in two thousand nineteen ninety and a half total receiving yards cards nine fifty and total receiving touchdowns in the regular season seven and a half. I think he's so good. He's so good ninety and a half is a a lot though and if they're gonna play dallas goddard a little bit more touches for zakar. It's go down a little bit this year. I think the targets go down a little bit zakar. It's this year so i'm going to say i'm gonna say <music> onder on the receptions and receiving yards seven and a half touchdowns as a lot but carson wentz loves looking for zakar. It's especially inside the red zone. I'll take the over on receiving touchdowns for zakar. Zakar is probably will end up leading the team in receiving touchdowns and so i'll take the over on seven and and a half on touchdowns but i'll take the under on the yardage nine hundred fifty yards and i'll take the under on the total receptions ninety and a half for fletcher cox and brandon graham iran. They're looking at saks. They have the over under for cox with eight and a half sacks and the over under for graham at six and a half sacks. I'm going under for brandon brandon graham. He's only gone over six and a half sacks once in his career and that was in two thousand seventeen the super bowl season when he had nine and a half sacks so again. He's never been a big sack total guy. He gets a lot of pressures. He gets a lot of hurries. He gets a lotta tackles in the backfield but we haven't seen graham have just one quote unquote big sack season and really nine and a half sacks for an edge rusher is not that many it's a good number especially with as much as the eagles rotate their defensive ends but if i'm looking at the if i'm looking to put money on an over under number for total sacks for brandon graham yeah i'm staying underneath six and a half because he's only gotten to over six and a half once in his career as for fletch you know his injury situation makes me a little nervous the fact that he hasn't played it all or really practiced at had all this spring or barely barely any eight and a half sacks though is a number he should be able to leapfrog if he's healthy and everything we're hearing from the eagles goals is that they're just keeping them out as a precaution that it's nothing serious that he'll be ready to go bye week one and if that's the case with me jackson helping to take some of the pressure off of him in the middle of the line you might see a little bit of an easier time for fletcher to get into the backfield and and get to the quarterback if maliki jackson can take a little bit more attention away in timmy jernigan. This is said to be looking really good in this preseason as well that if jernigan is is you know kind of re rejuvenated and can generate some pressure. It'll it'll make things easier for fletcher koksal. I'll say i'll say over eight and a half for fletcher cox as far as total sacco. I'll say under six and a half and total sacks for brandon graham and i'm going to have a whole list over unders <hes> with some more than justice i will. We'll get some get some additional over unders as well in a piece that i'm writing bleeding. Green nation should be up the by by friday friday or by this weekend so if it's not there right away it will be there working on that <hes> as we speak but in the meantime just a few fun over unders for this philadelphia the eagles team as they get ready to open the season in just over a week against the washington football team at home so folks.

We have a lot of different topics to talk about up first off before we begin and I wanted to mention something that I linked in the show notes for this episode by Good Buddy coach Bass had to deal with the misfortune of his mother passing away on Christmas and the expenses that come along with that have put him in a bit of a tight spot so if you can find it in your heart.

I play video. Oh Games with them. I chat with him every day and to have this happen. Him On. Christmas of all days is just terrible. So if you're compelled to do so please click the link included in the show notes. Help our a guy out thank you gentlest ner for your generosity all right Ben. There is a lot to talk about today with the season and as since we last spoke spoke we had not only the Eagles being crowned the NFC east champions but also the giants have fired head. Coach Pat Shurmur while retaining general manager. Dave gettleman and his four new quote unquote computer folk. Also Washington has fired Bruce Allen as general manager they have hired Ron Rivera to be their head coach that also brings goes to the Dallas cowboys. They are having a meeting with Jason Garrett to determine his fate that's happening as we record so we'll keep an eye out for updates but the feeling is. Is that cowboys. Boys will let go of Garrett or really led his contract expire which is basically like firing him. Then a lot has happened Any thoughts on all the shakings and moving savings and ups and downs in the NFC. East including indices champions Philadelphia. Eagles your member. What's Doug Doug is bad the EVERY NFC east coast. They came into the season. Besides Doug is GonNa get fired. Jay Gruden Patron has been fired. Gary is I would say pretty probably fired. Yeah near making the playoffs three times for four seasons. It's like him and Mike Tomlin. The only two coaches in like forever to make it to the playoffs times of the first four four seasons and go to a super bowl The first ad with Tomlin it was like cowart retired or whatever bearded inherited a roster. That was gutted. By the Year of Chip Kelly Jab the dark ages the rating of the team. Good Beila Shawn McCoy like this was not a good team. When he got it he obviously allow Roseman credit as well able to build the team out to be something much better than it was but the the the coaching job the pearsons Don has been delightful at another way that you look at this Carson Wentz entering the playoffs allots going around only Through for over four thousand yards not a single receiver went from five hundred yardstick. I think that's wild. Hasn't done interception the red zone all year. Great Sixteen touchdowns one interceptions in the nine wins. There's tremendous Carson's not out here. You're doing like unbelievable. Ungodly on crazy things right. Peterson's Peterson yeah the one who is has scrapped together enough of a team to win four straight games in December a hard thing to do against four opponents very hard thing to do with the division on the line bear hunting to do to make the lesser thirty in aerobic. Hard thing to do it would win. You and I watched this film. Like there's better play for Greg. Ward Dante Burnett. Did a couple of things was second game incarcerated. Great stuff grade stuff. Boston Scott got Heck yeah brother. But the gestalt of the the Lynch pin of it all really should say is Peterson and what he's been able to manufacture on the office side of the football with spare parts and so I'm continuously blown away by the job. Doug Peterson dozens skiwear designer and then as a motivator and a leader in the locker room is a fantastic head coach greatly. Join him make some decisions. I don't like so what every head coach in all the world world forever included like myself. I shared on black Monday after the eagles had won the NFC East I shared an article was doug. Peterson was early December. It was the Doug Peterson after the Miami loss loss. As one of the top five coaches on the hot seat in the NFL. And I was like this is how quickly these things can change it. So bored say level headed through the losses because because all of a sudden four winds that were reminded of what a great coach He is shadowed. Doug Shadow Jay shot up pat and eventual shadow. Jason Ron Rivera. Now the head coach of Washington Redskins can. That's a big win for Washington in my opinion. is gonNA Cobb the analytic powerhouse yield appealed to fight with the Ravens the eagles the Patriots for the next ten years but Washington probably wasn't going to be that they hired so Rivera's a good high. He's going to get you to to a place where consistently competing level you out. New York Dallas who knows By Washington had a great step forward with the higher and they still got to figure out the general manager situation nation. They've got a whole search going on for that. But I agree Ron Rivera is a good. NFL coach might not be a great one. He's not a bad one. Let's solid hiring somebody that can deal with the the roster that they have there. I'm curious to see if Washington's GonNa Organic neither I sit side is gonNa want to bring in John. Dorsey was fired by Cleveland. I began riders GonNa like Dorsey Lot. But also I don't know if Rivera's GONNA WANNA work with doors is that's the tricky thing yet. Exactly you gotTA figure out those dynamics but like you said that a lot of turmoil going on right now in the NFC east and a lot to talk about with them going on throughout the offseason. But Doug Peterson no questions about him. And it's not the e offseason for the eagles. They are headed into the playoffs and they have a roster moved to one. That was a heavily talked about player between me and Ben Heavily debated baited player between me and Ben and Elijah Holyfield the Georgia running back. Who is with the panthers for a bit has been signed by the Philadelphia Philadelphia? Eagles was the guy who are really loved his tape of their moat. Both me and Ben loved his tape. I think we both had questions about his speed and so on and so forth of course he runs a four four seven eight at the combine and completing chases thought on he'll be which was the big concern with him coming out but when I said I think I tweeted. We did this out earlier in the year. s at the running backs for the Eagles next year GONNA be Mile Sanders Boston. Scott and two random madden generated no pig eighty plus trucking players and Elijah Holyfield. Is that eighty plus trucking type player. And what do you think about the same. There is one more to come by the way before. Kick it to you. There's one more signing to come because they're going to move brandon brooks unfortunately too I are so that's going to open up another spot so there is more moves coming but right now we know that Elisa Holyfield is an eagle bend. Your thoughts now holyfield. It was previously on practice squad. Panthers Yep Right now this is actually. I was wondering about this I was like can we take players off the practice squad. Awed of other teams were not in the playoffs. While we're in the cloud I do not know if we could or not and became his great news because these are in a very Britt spot where they're still competing in the playoffs and also have a ton of roster room because of injuries to just grab young players for the future. You know much like Boston. Scott Lay the twenty thousand season. So yeah I liked holyfield coming out on. It was great running back then. He tested booty. And that's problem love gardens. He's got a fantastic vote. Work loves visualize. The decisiveness graded stinks and the time and space if he's going to be anything of the. NFL level is going to be a short yard. Guys going to be a ground and pound between the tackles big body leverage average with power fall forward pick dirty sort of a player but once you have the terrible jobs that he did in the terrible forty that he'd it's pretty evident you're able to create explosive plays and obviously obviously what the NFL wants is explosive plays in eagles disposal. Plays especially out of the running backs because they're not gonNA explosive. Plays out of anybody else right now. Which is why you have multiple ten plus conceptions for Boston? Scott templates runs from ZANDER's in the game against the giants because the eagles need to generate explosive plays with their running backs. That's their only option in so I don't foresee him taking significant snaps. Though I guess Jordan Howard could still be not ready to go. He suited up from seventeen. Obviously we've heard mile L. Sanders low-grade sprain. which is great news if you believe anything? The Eagles Medical Department says which I do not so we'll see But I'm not going to be counting my eggs until they've hatched hatched matured feathered. Whatever the heck however all chickens get? That's how I will wait for my eggs to hatch when it comes to the Eagles Medical Department. This doesn't make any sense. We don't trust the Eagles Mile Santa's might not apply. I don't think it's going to be necessary at just grabbing a guy for practice squad you you want to see if you can develop and make him a good player while let's transition over to the eagles a giants game talking about film review. We both broke it down and whatnot and real quickly. Give some quick thoughts and then kick it to you. Because I got to do the RECAP SHOW WITH BILL G may for rain because you are at a wedding service and did not get to watch the game. In fact the last is play that you saw was the Barclay Sixty eight yard scamper house and begged panic mode and then you come back and you see that the eagles win but I mean you look at this offense overall their scheme you see a lot of trips and whether you want to call it eleven personnel or twelve personnel. At this point it really does not matter because they're using Goddard and Perkins in a lot of receiver type reps for instance Perkins Ran Forty one percent of his snaps from the slot. Got It was thirty seven percent together. They combined for twenty three reps out wide. Now it's great to have averse. Oh guys like that to where you can line them up all over the formation but the problem is without the natural separators to compliment that you see a lot of cases in this game from where I felt there was nothing open for Carson. There was airtight coverage and as such giants defensive coordinator rewards you about this and the bring the preview shows. He was not afraid to leave his guys in man coverage and sent heat and you saw the eagles money down numbers four for thirteen on third and fourth down combine. The Eagles saw a lot of long distances. On all those downs that quite frankly they are not equipped to handle so. That's a problem that I saw on the film. That's going to translate to next week because there are issues there and look props to Josh Perkins Arkan's again props to Dallas. guttered looked at excellent not. I'm not sure we need to be saying such hasty things as perhaps the Josh Perkins that feels low and vicious I mean. He's doing a better job than Mac Collins so McCall's was so good at lining up a different places. How dare you? He wasn't though he was out but Josh Perkins's but now Dante Dante Burnett comes up with a big catch. Robert Davis. It's called back but he had a fantastic cat so there are guys making plays but at the same time you do worry about this offense and I think you said the same thing during the game that You know this. This eagles offense just can't handle third and long situations they're going to have to have early down success moving forward. What did you see from the offense overall when you took a look at the film yet? Another main anything that you experience offensively is. This is a team that for the past few weeks has needed to nickel and dime their way down the field in order to be successful foale nothing against the giants so then that begs the question. How do the T. managed to score thirty four points Zaibatsu? We've been talking about them successfully nickel and diming in the context of like you know long drives and scoring twenty two hundred points in game. Well the eagles had seventeen twenty points. And nen. You have a mouth Jenkins fumble recovered by Fletcher Cox. The two that becomes a touchdown. And then you have the giants go for it on fourth and three from their own thirty nine and that becomes a turnover on downs. Which then because the touchdown gel you have yourself short fields generated by turnovers and this is complementary football? This is unit helping you to this. Is the defense offense as short fields. And now you don't need a string together. Three third down conversions fourth down conversion began the scoring rage. You're already there to begin with that. 'cause like that drive after the turnover on downs were the eagles were up. I believe it was twenty seven seventeen at this time I attacked A negative run a loss. Second and thirteen is an incompletion third thirteen. The Eagles get the whole field out of Boston. Scott all all they needed was one third down conversion big third at thirteen well-suited screenplay. This is the famous spin move by Boston's dot but it got down to the to Scotland's abandoned and they're not only does this like thirty nine yards screenplay not have the same effect if this Dr Starting at your own twenty also probably not even calling it on third not. You're probably probably calling something that has more down throughout the first place. This is the advantage of being able to play on your opponent side of the field on having those fields so the eagles offense didn't really they they did create thirty four points. Short fields helped a ton but this was again a team that mostly succeeded by nickel and diming down the field by saying ahead. The sex by getting into manageable second third downs once we got the third of laws it was a very frequent prayer Team right like we're GONNA hold this one on one coverage we don't get it the punt. The ball away goes to the defense thought played better than I anticipated the doing in this match up. That's what helped the eagles put up those thirty four points. They got a lot better individual performances from from the defense than I think we've seen for for a lot of the season as it gives the whole unit played well together in this game I thought and but but to go back to your point here. I mean news flash drives and sometimes it's not always on the quarterback you look at the fourth and seven talking about the struggles with this offense and there's a lot to dissect in this one by this is just a blitz from from James Becher. He brings a lot of heat there. Is Nobody Open. And that's something that the eagles are going to have to deal with also on this play. Big The just gets planted. Lead by the rookie. o'shane Zimmer says and puts up on his but here so we're hoping we're hoping for the return of Lane Johnson very soon. You're out out of some of these some of the offensive players. I think we'll we'll start with Carson wentz dial in on his performance I think the big thing for the eagles was letting the Bronco Buck Doc Carson Wentz on the move in space off play action also extending plays as well when you get him into a position where he's not sitting in a pocket with all this chaos around him you'd get him out in the space and you give this unit of wide receivers that struggling to separate a longer period of time in which to separate I mean the touchdown down to Perkins the twenty th the at the Quarter to to a one the first and ten rollout whence on the hull with time to survey the field and pick his shots while also affording in that group more time to separate and his decision here to cut across the grain with this throw is interesting because typically you don't want that but he makes this decision as Perkins is covered by the outside outside corner has hips open to him whence knows that corner is going to have to turn and run with Perkins to get there and at that point. You'll have his by. Yeah right you said Oh you don't WANNA put your hands against the grain and produce all right. That's not what's taught as dangerous play. Why are you doing that but also to me this like this is very clearly designed right so this play is hip to model three level? Flood Vase the twenty four yard. LEVERING play actions on flow lasts longer bowls in the right. We're going to have what looks potentially be tight. End Screen Green release. Maybe a tighter Flat we have great war being the deep there should be. The intermedia caused the side of the field of Josh Perkins should fade into the back. Pylon that quarter of the endzone. He instead gives that quarter luck and then cuts to the post and flags across the field. And what I think is the read here as Millfield close middle field. Oh bed did because what you expect. This is a quarters luck from from the giants. What you expect from the middle of the field safety here is potentially sit and robbed down? autocorrect ward cover three. But because the recorder's he continues to bail continues to build backing continues to bail back. And that's what gives outside quarter twenty seven Devon Beal may not. I can't remember anyway when he thinks that that near quarter is going to be able to eat up what looks to be a corner post. You think sat fatmir safe. He's going to eat up the corner post. It's going to go to the middle of Tony's going to be fine. So he keeps his bail deep bailing deep bailing deep and then perkins flattens this route off and screams it to the opposite pylon which is a great way to be a check cover to middle of field crossers because that corner to the outside who has across her running away. Hey from Greg. Warburg away from him. He's responsible for middle of the field so he's going to be closing middle of the field because he's expecting you to go corner post. BYU A quarter post. But then you flattening out you go directly across process face. The by the time they Carl starts gathering his weight the second. UC's that that quarter dropped into the deep. biddle knows he's GONNA throw this aid to space and ask Perkins to get it around the corner. That's what he does. I think so supersonic design if you go and you watch the Robert Davis and deontay burke net deep balls which were back to back place to one another aw twelve seconds left in the third the first play the fourth they both follow similar ideas in that bay present flood in one direction. But they're really trying to go the other way with it. It with Robert Davis they ended up getting Peterman coverage to leverage throw against man was crosswinds. Put in Saint Spot. And then the Deontay Burnett. Bob Is my favorite player in this game. This is so fricking became cool. Alright Yeah WanNA throw so so. It's like sale. Rate is that is that so. It's it's three level flood right. Yeah but what's cool is the plaque clashes when you're running play action flood. which way do you savvy offensive line but if you envision it in your head is going to be a play action fake under center? It's going to be a bootleg. Would you envision it the quarterback boots away from the office of wine the off line zone blocks one way. I opened my hips that way to the back. That way turnaround ironic to unblock doc space. That's your typical look for zone. Play action deep shot three level flood cool the eagles and we talked about this like five weeks ago. Run a concept sites Seagal back power. That looks like zone. Initially are the footwork of the backside. The backside of the Office of Michael the Eagles here rug three level flood with a plaque should look that is not zone. It's a play action look of same side single back power which means that Carson wentz boots towards where his offensive line is. He does not boot away from offensive. Line you've got prior hopefully about vitamin right now best the right side of the line. Carson wentz boots behind them but at the snap they all initially worked to the right side because this is pretending to be saves as comeback powers prior polls goals Jason. Peters look what he's GonNa Combo climb up to the second level. But everybody's safe. When you're online Scrimmage and they'd say Lou Kelsey Vitae Josh Josh Perkins of the tight end or all in place with leverage to the boot side which is huge. Because nobody even sniffs Carson Wentz on this flight life you had ten thousand years to read this or choose to run with it because you did not pedal to wine away from the boot you you got to move towards the boot because the plan your game was adult of sensical back power which you've set up because you've rented the entire year so this was this is such a nifty little design in what what it gives the box and how that allows the eagles to boot Carso went into protection into space with always gonna be near him and then yes you have to level flawed. Plot underneath deontay Burnett Burnett gives those slightly like you just want to clear out route down the seam and then he snaps back inside for the deepest quarter out you've ever doggone saw Carson Wentz put a ball on the young man from yard completion. This is this is is is the levels to describe how cool is is our top two to reach. This is awesome stuff. I agree I agree yes I thought there was some great stuff from Carson especially on the move it feels like the eagles have gotten his legs involved more in recent weeks than they had in the past and he's been very accurate in those situations Carson can sling it when he's on the hook and brother. Let me tell you to talk about some other quick offensive performances performances. Here before we kick it over to the defensive side of the ball but the catch up we gotta bring up Dallas Gutter the catch by Dallas got hurt in the third quarter three thirty eight on third and eight with the the score tied up at ten. This would keep go ahead Dr Alive which is the type of heroics they need on third and long this guy got her has come up big big when his number has been called in these situations late late in the season. He has a gorgeous toe tapper on this one over the shoulder just a beautiful catch. He's over six hundred yards on the year now ranks tenth among tight ends. He has top ten for yards per route run out of the slot on this season per. Pf a disguise being being absolutely productive. And you ask well why do you draft thous God if you're going to extend jacquards and all this other stuff will number one. They run twelve lot number two. This is the type of production that you can get with Dallas Goddard. When he's put in a situation like this where he has to step up just another tool in the toolbox of an offense that is severely lacking playmakers occurs so seeing Dallas guttered? Step up like that in a big time moment was fantastic to see anything else that you saw from the APP so point on that one of the things that happen which blows this is that Erz out and we should reasonably expect urge to be out in week weeks the weekend for the rest yes it is maybe less rate getting which is what we believe happened than he's big beaten up. What happened with socks is on a lot of the two-time concepts eagles ran a and they didn't put Perkins into his job and then leave got in garnered shop they put Role Than Perkins in Ghana troll. Like like if you go to fourteen thirteen in the fourth quarter This is the second in Tan. They run the little vertical. Release out of the NUB set of why weighing but got it has to be on the inside Purgas has to go the outside of this route because Perkins cannot be on the inside in line because he cannot block and so now got it runs the over which attracts the sagging linebacker. The whole defender in the middle of fuel safety and this one does and in a hurricane does running the little seem route with the outside bend. The daughter run so successfully. Anthony could be passed. It gets broken up on. The quarter does a nice job sitting on it and he makes Password got but that's commendable and everything like that. That's great whatever but the Eagles tried a couple times with perkins in the Red Zone. They never got it with him. This this little bender route. They're so used to doing because he simply is not ron and not as good runner Dallas Gutter ends Acura Tarpon. Also he doesn't have the same physicality of the data is not as big and so. It's harder for him to box out with these cadets. He does the catches relative to what garnered usually do so. That's a little frustrating. But they do a good job getting got her involved in other ways I e screen game and then they get involved him involved. A deep breaking routes still pretty consistently which is something they never do his actors He kills that's that's fantastic to say another thing. I really loved from a ski perspective. The giants can't early in this game. Were giving the eagles troubling there blocking scheme by What's called like lagging or leaking the nose? Tackle the backside eh gaps. So you line up your nose in the front side a gap and what will grab a quick plays example. We want to go to thirty nine. I was going to be a rush for nothing Mile Sanders under center at the snap. We have number ninety. Four Alvin Tomlinson. He's in the the frontside egg with the play wants to go but immediately immediately at the snap he is going to shoot into the backside. A gap right with the snap. Three mealy crosses David Kelsey space and in the Middle Linebacker who wasn't backside. A gap immediately immediately closed down Hill frontside egg APPS. You're switching the nose switching the middle linebacker. Neal's make a lot of checks calls based off middle linebacker most but the the leverage of the nose is what's important here because Kelsey goes to seal him off on the zone walk. He overshoots him because he's shooting the backside a gap he penetrates upfield while Brandon Brooks has to try to make this angle on the middle linebacker. And that's a really tough able to make because he expects them to fill backside Jay which Brooks's gap but it's as the front side is so that's over near mall is. The Eagles are out leveraged by these players Will Renzo Carter absolutely murders is same all play for nothing. Whatever if you go just immediately to the second drive right like they had one meeting on the sidelines? About this you can go to Mile Sanders. A twenty one yard run. This is seven twenty eight a in a in the first quarter. What the Eagles do? It's a very similar concept. The running zone frontside again to the left once again. The nose. Tackle the son. Dexter Lawrence is in the front inside a gap this time when he spills backside a gap kelsey comes out infect and POPs of Yongbo blocked pop. Some right over to brooks lap and then Kelsey gets off the block. He's the the WHO handles the the middle linebacker closing the frontside gap instead of trying to outreach into the playside he distaste his backside shoulder. Driveway wants to go by all standards cuts up. The gap is a twenty one yard gave the the the giants spent the entire first two drives leaking lagging the nose tackle to the backside a gap and then after this Aboard Board. They gave me. They were like less than we're screwed. His own reads this way. I had literally. Jason Kelsey adjusts Algebra. Like yeah we're just going to cobble block best instead of asking Brandon Brooks Club in the the second level and it's not gonNa work bore and they completely lost it. They trapped up. They didn't allow two really good stops with that nose tackle. The giants had to abandon it and let the Eagles get back into their base package running the football pretty quickly so the really nice odd sight adjustment. At least what I want. That's what I think happened For Kelsey BREXIT's outlet to go to the sideline for prescribes they listened. They're doing this. They're going to trap this guy that we got to be able to scoop block instead of asking me to take that. That's the that's the advantage you have with Brooks in there with Matt Prior. That's a much more difficult conversation. Because you don't have the chemistry between calcium brought at prior that you have a Kelsey. Brookes harder to pass that block off Ben crushing the offensive side the film review even while sick. It's very commendable. You hear how bad this got go to break. We're going to go to break so that Ben can blur. Will we'll be right back. I'm Jillian Weinberger host the impact a podcast from vox about how powerful people affect the rest of us this season. We're looking at the big ideas from all the people running for president in twenty twenty hit this opioid crisis head on public option. Move away a proposal to energy efficiency.

You're on the kissed and so late show episode one sixty five and five hundred for BGN since the relaunch. Thank you for joining US gentle listener. This of course is all brought to you by espy. Chablis degree nation Michael Kissed here with Benjamin Solex. We cover the offensive side of the ball for the eagles. Let's wit side to the defensive offensive side of the ball which had some changes in the middle of the game of automatics was beat up but I thought he had a really good game overall like I said before as far as like the whole unit goes I felt like a lot of different players had some really good games. I think Timmy Jernigan really stood out to me and timmy. Jernigan has had a kind of volatile season from week to week. He can be you know he can be pretty much anything he could be high low even be in the middle. This game I felt was one of his better ones and he He got a sack for for trouble for it about say maddox good game by him even even though he was banged up Malcolm Jenkins continues to perform. Well Rodney McLeod was bringing some thump at thought overall as well that he had a good one brand grand mates and splash plays plays and played strong throughout even guys like like Nathan Gary. I thought had a decent game and then Derek Barnett hits to successful spin moves in the same game and if he would have had a sec Ben was going to have to buy his jersey unfortunately often inside spin move against native solar council right. He's a star. The highest paid Spin cycle the league brother. It's funny because I was like Yo. Vinnie Curry's the good inside rusher game against this fan protection. Meanwhile Derek by Ned brother did his film film study which was which was one on the pros on scouting port coming now but he knew less getting wide some coming inside on folks that he really really good job reading sets in the tackle with the inside account. That's exactly what you want to see from this player. Given how he's developed thus far that's their of his game that he needs to win with and I thought he did a good job. They're not. I agree in the eagles that a lot of different things with their blitz packages packages and they use the Brandon Brandon Graham. Derek Arnold. SOM stunts the stunt from branding grant came on a while they got a sack on inverted cover to would you believe it. Ben Yes I mean the. The the key was the three-man stunt with Brandon Graham coming from like kicked in like four is spot all the way across the formation but on third and eight the coverage had things pretty well covered too. They weren't stress in a manner that typically gives them issues in inverted cover to receiver coming from one side to the deep middle. But we'll take the small victories overall Overall bump player I I felt that was kind of up and down result DOUGLASTON. We might need him in the playoffs. I thought he got picked on a bit in this game especially to start. The third quarter touchdown to tate was one where he just couldn't make a play on the ball and the next drive. They come right after him with an orbit burner concept so he has to to cover this deep route. But even that one at then if you're following along at home on game pass that saw seven thirty in the third quarter second six. He's got a truck all the way across the field and he just can't against Darius late in which no surprise because Layton has four three juice and the blog is to blame here too because they're asking crave on the blog to to come from the line he then rotates a deep safety and he just doesn't get advocated either teams of figure it out if we motionless slot in they'll kick their slot cornered a single high that. Ah Ah Safety. Slap foreigners aren't good place being high which I was trying out for the Washington a game because Washington got the Eagles on the couple times. There was the the player. Von Demata swinging single. Oh Hi Jerry. maclaurin touchdown was off of that. There was debate on twitter about how well maddox played the responsibility in the rock and roll. Where were the safeties rock and roll? Where a motion? The corner who was on the jet motion player drops the single high safety than the single high safety goes to cut off the most player that gave up a big touchdown. Then you have a big play on it with the Darius slay throw it wasn't it wasn't Hopefully there's you know somebody in the analytics department Barbie being like Hey Jimbo when you do this good things happen to the other team. Yeah but I I struggle to blame. So for the Golden Tate Touchdown L.. Man I mean so. It's yeah is deep crossers. They handed off really nicely and then he he physically cuts off golden state. He outlived him dangle. Adults ban on the pocket for three three and a half seconds scrambles jolt a great throw go take makes a great catch big sufficiently physical with Douglas. Douglas obviously not able to get his head around which is which is disappointing thing but no way was he in a poor coverage position or did he do anything technically wrong but even to pass interference penalty was stupid in my opinion so I have no issue. I don't play best us. There's probably he probably cut off GonNa Tate and fell asleep a little bit and stopped flying at a hundred percent late in the play but Beyond that like I didn't have any biggest with a sleigh right is like that's what he's GonNa lose tail but the issue so he loses to slay in on that hugh started for yard catch and run and it's like this is how we remember it the same way we could remember so Douglas's the reason we lost to the cowboys number by Tape Austin. Meanwhile everybody's talking about extension a city Jones on the very same frigging drive five four thirty four sitting band coverages does not move. His feet gets unbelievably toasted by sterling. Shepard Markaz accepts isn't even in the same zip code as plight but what you there. Yeah and is it adds being incomplete because data Completely shorts hit city Jones in the back as he's trying to recover Cabraha so we got our quarter play. We gotta be a little bit more process-based Jones. I don't know like he was. Here's what was tricky about Jones. Jones was so oh good press coverage coming out of Washington but you can play that. NFL level here is an off coverage third year. Obviously it's been a generally insane career for Jones but he's struggling off and he needs to be good offer. How correctly is which he's activated feet like this is just day one? Install stuff I I thought overall Jones because a lot of people ask me. 'cause you know a big Sidney Sidney Jones guy coming into the season. They asked me about his performance. Look at and here we are. It is December. Thirty first is going to be two thousand twenty win this era so still in two thousand twenty. We are going to be tried to figure out what to do with this quarterback group and said he had some plays. I really love her. Though the one where he drove on the slant I put that up on their on twitter he got up nice and Titan and made a play and they had the interception in a cover to zone where he kind of Luke apply. Yeah it was a solid play. That's that's what you should do with no threat in front. Have you get depth and you end up putting yourself in a position to make a play on the ball as exceptions on the year and has had come up with some huge plays but overall as you said there are are some flaws on this film as well some consistency issues. I mean the one where he yoked Saquon Barkley trying to get out to the flat. That was weird and go back to like Russell to restore Seoul wasn't all bad like I feel like I'm picking on a little bit so i WanNa bring up a good one. I'll given credit on the long ball on fourth quarter. Thirteen minute mark against slate and who gets on top of him a little bit which again. Slayton four three but resold as a good job while not in phase of playing through the hands and earns a break-up so that wasn't all bad and he had another break up up like that closing down Kate Smith from zone Reagan. His hands on the fifth. I was go play or overall shaky with some of the same Unsurprising issues us. But some solid plays mixed into of maddox had a great Great break-up on a I forget the time stamp. But he had a nine ball that he stayed in phase as war looked back leaned into the receiver. made the made the break-up so like there were some plays there to be made for the secondary and they They they came up with most of them so it could have been in a lot worse than it wasn't so thankful that we actually got some ball skills in the air from the Eagles corners in this game which has not been the case from the outside corners for the majority season. The other corner who deserves mentioned for ball skills is slow Akra von. who was good? I don't know if there's a way that you can create a roster spot that exists just exclusively for the post season or just generally like play important games despite season but obviously we did see the log of the year because injure whatever but it's just insane how two years in a row they have been massively strong at the corner position in riser in the playoffs this cat Cremona vaseline. I was like what if an I actually really good. And you're like out without it'd be awesome. He's gotTa be good for these football games No you didn't have the greatest game against the bears in the wildcard round but like he was like a legit like starting quality impact nickel quarter. I mean the the third seven pass break up in the first quarter odds like eight okay sex or something. At the time stamp. This is golden tate on shake route in the slot. This is like a nightmare for us. Law Corner Leblanc just sits with them. Super Patient Physical flips lapses. Hats handed over the cashpoint meet. Its textbook coverage like this. If this is healthy Leblanc Alto boxer starmer. We'll eagles have too many good nickel players. Negus get some good outside. Players Malcolm Jenkins von Mash Cremona block is the best possible nickel defending trio people. You could ever have. They have no outside quarters to go at whatsoever so yeah thought As well for quarters ball skills make an impact lies. I wanted to Get your thought process. What was going through your head during the game? We'll talk about the SAQUON touchdown here will break down for someone to get your thoughts by that. That was something else in quarter three to sixteen first and ten. I play of the drive after the eagles go up seventeen to ten. It's the most eagles thing ever to do to immediately give up the big one. This one goes sixty eight yards and look Barclay special. You get gary kicked out Bradina Bradina sealed-off Jones's locked up grandma's held up just long enough and McLeod takes what I think is a bad angle from is a pretty bad angle isn't it. What is he looking at a Tokyo? He's like going inside in a is it's obvious in any way but all these things happen and allow Barclay to scampered nearly untouched. I mean the Guy Right through the peace sign at the eagles forty eight yard line. He knew that nobody was catching them. Then as you're at the wedding service about to go in and you see this play what's going through your mind positive. They'RE GONNA lose a football game. I was so sure the whole time all the well so sad that the eagles are about to lose this twenty two seventy get over it will die by the time I got out of the service it was don thirty four seventeen Happy I went through all the place and I was like deep deep past complete deep last complete D. complete. I was so surprising. Jake Elliott hit a fifty yarder at nobody. It'd be screw you guys with room to spare you freaking Elliott's every single. She does not miss the clutch all the names of all you cowards. Words who failed in left at forsake the okay. Whatever he's really good? I liked you so I saw that. That was good. I actually when I was like. y'All Malcolm Jenkins fumbles was such a cool play much all the data don't vested just dropped the ball on the guy that's still fine. I'll take beggars can't be at this point. That was the big rose rose like holy crap. How good of a Game Boston Scott had how critical he was until I saw his first got the player of the week? And then I saw a stat line and then I watched the film and I was like all Mao sanders like it might have mile. Sater's dislike part second half no. He was like three quarters and Scott was like yellow bell cow. Now how you can deal with that like this is what I do. Right is what I was built for us. Why I'm five? Eight put worldwide shoulders. Sanders forty-five scrimmage yards and like by the middle of the first quarter. He was balling and then he goes on my honestly honestly. What's going on idea the low key? The clutches play of the the entire game was the Boston Scott one-handed screen okay. I am I tand. I'm looking for where it is. 'cause went under pressure in. He's got. He's got a float. One and Boston. Scott is like four foot seven so there's not a huge target to deal with the fact that he was able to wrangle this thing in this pretty the incredible considering some of the drops you want some like awful football analysis right just like not good scouting analysis but just fan analysis on this supply. When Boston Scott takes enough out of the linebacker he liked goes like yeah? Let's his body and it was. It was going to block up in the GEICO Lazim right here like spins him and that makes him over pursued Carson and then Scott able to survive that contact flips still get into a screen path in time. But he's obviously a little bit behind bog floated he caroused one handed while spinning in the air. Like one handed catches are hard. He does it wall rotating so he landed a position where he can run up the field. What you watch this play? You're like yeah this kid's the man like this is like the you can't make plays like this without it's like being like inflow like we were just like I could either good football player. You know this is not this is not a backup play like all should be good. This is just like Boston Scott by position on TV sound down. I'm a big deal on the reason. This offense running call me Carson Wentz. There was such a good quality fun play and he deserves all of the celebrations that he got afterward. Word the multiple touchdowns fakes booth all staff. How big do you think his hands are did he was he account to make a one hand he combine he was He had so. I I see here your values from the. I think it's from the Arctic Rodeo. If I'm not mistaken but his arm like this. Twenty nine and seven eighths. So he's got like the of automatics. T. Rex arms arms. But I don't see don't see hand size. I was interested when I saw the catch. I'm like he's gotTa have like the tiniest hands I will say but anyway nine and seven eight for five seven is one thing. Maddox five nine. Five ten twenty nine and a half. He's a hero as anytime. Madison makes a pass now to be his arm. Length causes so proud of him. But anyway now okay. It's time to start messing around. Mike's hard to be serious time to give the people what they want Weeks ago this podcast. I may or may not have said that. Anti Russia my favorite player in the Philadelphia Eagles and they should have cut him on the very next day. So a half of that was correct. He is my favorite player. The Eagles I I would buy his Jersey tomorrow if not for the fact that I think he will not be number sixty six immediate future cause more harm Saiki him because he's not bad add. Now he doesn't fit the Jim Schwartz mold and so they probably aren't GonNa get rid of him but he has played clearly well enough to be a rotational national player. Somewhere he's a great film. He's throwing low pass rush moves. Look at the Anthony Rush. I'm not here to over SCO for it. Every single rushing the ball rush works because he's massive and he also continues to be one of the most impressive hustle players on the team. But only if you watch it very closely because because you're not watching for him you just think he's at the same speed as everybody else because he is but he's trying so much harder to Stops and I love him unconditionally. Italy would you still die for him. Yes I feel like the second. He stops counting number sixty six in number like ninety five. I'm going to like him way. Less but sixty fifty six is. What kills me? How long do you think it takes him to get his first sacking by how long I mean from snap like not I like what gave you be like? What's the duration of quarterbacks time the pocket like honestly the probably got The Eagles if they have good rush lane integrity like he'll probably get a cleanup Sackett Consob Boyd. If he continues to play this snaps he's taken like thirty snaps agape. I don't think you'll be this year. They're probably GONNA play wargames maybe tail all man. He's he's gotTa get cleanup sack is going to be one of the most hustle list cleanups is one. I wanted to get like a sack like the quarterback like trying to escape up the pocket. And just like you don't like like Tries to fly into the be gap. See Somebody's there. Tries to bounce back in the air gap and Russia's standing doesn't even expect them to show up quarterbacks rugged did Anthony yard sad but it goes into the statue doesn't sack at Russia's a huge celebration Anti rushes my hero. I love him to death. Eagle should should never cut him ever. What made that very clear? That's the new policy all the Pong. He's been playing Decent rotational ball as late. Like you said during the playing well. The defensive tackle rotation is shoring up pretty nicely that is going to do it for this film review. Recap of the Eagles and the giants.

I n g kept ski from voice. dot com. with me as always is out leading cremation. Aegean radio episode number. One hundred six are bad brandon. How are you jimmy. Couldn't have said it. More accurately singly. Better deals are that i'm here. I propose to you doing a podcast up so this week where we didn't even talk about the team because who cares. I honestly i wrote about this on bleeding releases dot com after the jimmy. I was like this team doesn't deserve anyone's outrage. They deserve your apathy now. I say that as someone who is an shouldn't be saying that. Because i want you the listener to come to leading renascent takeout philly voiced. Jimmy's work checkout out. Bgn radio here. But i i can't blame ya if you checked out but that said gonna the dot com engage off some craft jerky hawaii. You're dealing with your depression. And you discount code fifteen or fifteen percent off yet. It's reminds me a little bit of like when you make that. Apathy point reminds me like mid to late in the twenty twelve season which was of course injuries last year. That if he really set in zero before you had the dream team expectations were heightened a little bit because they closed out that twenty eleven season like they have much games. At the end of that year there's renewed hope that maybe all these players kinda came. You're under their belt with the team. Would kinda put it together. And i didn't and i just kept losing losing losing and like really turned from anger from the families to apathy really quick and i think that's really what ultimately put a jeffrey loria over the edge in you know firing injury but anyway i quite there yet. I don't so maybe in the future will Having episode like that but They have five game stretch coming. That is really hard. We'll get to that in a little bit. We'll talk a little bit about eagles giants If you feel like reliving that mass we to the nfc's picks versus the newest and biggest thing News wise is that the injury report is really thinning out so there only two guys that just with that didn't practice it all. I know like i said before. Like pleasure cox and anna. Jason peterson practice. There are scheduled days off who the other two referred in. Sean sean. Rising judah illness. Okay so the good news that either reporters thinning out had his excuse for failure anymore. So like they're they're not really all that banged up anymore. they still have a guys on injured reserve. They're going to get zach ertz back soon. Because he's the twenty one day practice window on him I don't know of anyone really really cares about that at this point but their injury report is actually. I mean they'd report itself babbling. You look at the guys on. I are and they're just really. Aren't that many area. Got brandon brooks of got andre dillard. You've got sean jackson style. But there i mean it's really. They're really not that banged up of football team anymore. Yeah helios saying going into last week's game like okay. You can look at this point for optimism but you could also look at that and be like they were two one to start the year when they were relatively healthier in the head. And i'm herb these guys it's like it's not like you know injuries or the only reason they're bad and i think it's a good thing though in looking at this from like the injury. Excuse can't be used. This can't be used to deflect blame off of those who deserve lane here Guess the positive in that sense. Yeah i mean. I heading into the game last week. Your gasoline johnson back miles sanders back getting astronaut. Jeffrey back so there are some thinking that the return of these players would maybe give the offense a little bit juice maybe a little bit of a different look at it just wasn't pared back like you get this performance carson wentz where he doesn't turn the ball over his family thrown interceptions earning on that but kinda plays sort of quote unquote within the scheme system. Or whatever you wanna call it. And the results weren't there just looked a little bit different than has looked the rest of the season when they win turning the ball over like crazy but they just i mean the the alternate effect of that that they didn't make any plays like the opposite. Make any place at all overnight on third down just a truly dreadful offensive performance of the pants were the worst of the three phases of the game. Terms of offense defense special teams But certainly the the offense was was the worst defense. Didn't play well early Special teams was garbage throughout the entirety. That game So it was really just sort of an earned loss to a very bad team on all three fronts. Yeah i think a lot of people and we to we talk about. Who's most to blame. And that's very sports radio to do that but the reality is the same stinks and everyone deserves blame. Like every level like from in terms of not just in terms of the game itself from offense defense special teams but then also like the foundational pieces here stink. The front office stinks quarterback. He stinks adolf peterson. He's had multiple bad games. Rate are in a row right now and he's things right now so it's all dad that's the reality of it and it's depressing. You know you look at overnight on third. Down really against the nfl's twenty-six frank down defense like recently really like you're going to be that poor third down like you're coming out of the bye week in you can't convert down like what are we doing scored seventeen points. It's pathetic And then the defense to me. I mean the giants ranked second to last in offense points per game heading into last week. Seventeen point two only to the jets. You have twenty seven daniel jones for the first time in his career. Jimmy daniel jones did not either fumble the ball or throw an interception in a single game against tim sorts his defense With the eagles like it's it's pathetic man and even just from like in like from an individual player standpoint. How many of these guys are i. Guess exceeding expectations like heading into the season yet. Certain expectation of a player. How many like played above that level brandon brandon graham travis. Fogel maybe nate her. Big nasty nate baby jordan. Alava sure daring better. I've played like the way he's played but like maybe be some doubts that he would But he's been he's been maybe a little better than some people anticipated. See like y off six players at slaves kind of a stretch. I mean this game is coming up was worst game. yeah that's true he's overall. He's been good though. Josh josh sweat is another one. Who's legit good player at least in terms of the role that he had. Oh yeah ethics at as as a rotational pass rusher. I think he's As a sack or quarterback in his last five. It's been a while since he's made an impact aubrey with that for sure. But then you look at the number of players that have not lived up to expectations. You can triple that number also like everyone. Yeah it's just like you said it's structurally it's coaching staff front office. It's individual players. It's just an and of course. The quarterback is is the big one but across the board. They've just really under a tree. Underachieved to an extreme degree. And i put this out like Have pulled up in front of you right now. But like the teams that. They've actually beaten like the quarterbacks that they've actually got here. The quarterbacks have actually beaten so they've they've staved twelve wins since the start of the twenty nineteen season and seven of them are against the following quarterbacks case keenum luke. Falk mitchell trubisky. Eli manning joint haskins mcmullan's benji so more than half. Those winds have come against quarterbacks. That aren't starters in the nfl did you take away. Those easy wins and they're they're five twelve one. It feels right to like at what point in the since the two thousand nineteen season like. Did you really feel great about this team. Obviously we won last year although they started out poorly. Yeah and they'd come back to washington but you know for interactivity lasting optimism like when was that and that's why it was crazy to me when i got the sense that this organization thought like everything is fine or things are trending in the right direction. It's like are we not living in the same reality. it's like no one feels good about this operation like a lot of people while you know talk themselves into things and i will never blame them for doing that. I've been wants to be optimistic. You don't you wanna give yourself a chance. You don't wanna be like well you know heading into the season. Everything's gonna be terrible. I so i get that there's a lot of optimised out there And i'm not trying to criticize those people as much as you know the organization to have that mindset that everything is fine not actually realize how bad they are. That's that's what frustrates me. And that's what makes me want to check out. Like when i see that kind of attitude i feel like there's no. They're not going to be changes. I feel i mean obviously there. Argument is if it's a disappointing season. But will they be meaningful will be significant as they should be because to this point. They haven't been i. I just really wonder like okay. We all believe howie. Roseman is gonna be back. Great the front office would have been terrible. So he's gonna make more of those. We're gonna do another seasons. That doug peterson i of feeling you know. He's the least secure. And that's frustrating. Because i feel like all the blame on him would be the really unfair but also Maybe he's back in like where they take away his play then carson. Wentz can't go anywhere because of his contract basically and he's terrible right now and and really you know ever since the concussion last year and i wonder if that's still bothering him i don't know that but i kind of question i've gotten recently actually an answer to it. Obviously but it's been quite a lot of people are asking so but those are your foundational pieces. I just don't know like we're the optimism is with them. There's some delusion last year or evidence delusion last year in the changes that they didn't make other there was some recognition that the offense wasn't performing at the level that it should have been the nevada last year of course they fire micro and they fire carson wash which doug one of those guys as we saw that not process like it is part of the Part of the problem here. Yeah but at least at least jeffrey. Laurie seemed recognize it. Those guys is warned. Get the job done At their respective jobs so those guys get let go. But that wasn't enough. And also the the the antidote wasn't or the the fixed the problem wasn't just add like seven more offensive coaches to throw to the vix like that wasn't it so that that was part of the delusion in my opinion do or just enough wasn't done to fix the what was really just a stagnant boring ass offense the last two years and initiator of course everything is kinda cratered. So it'll be interesting to see. Sort of how. Jeffrey loria used this season. As a whole and sort of where he places the blame Going forward because again like you said it's it's everywhere across the roster. I felt like the one question that was really good Earlier this year was Doug would define the identity of the offense. And i'm just gonna read the response real quick here so he he said i would define the identity as using the strength number. One you've got to go. You've got to go off the strength. I think of your quarterback and then you build your plans around that so obviously the identity you wanna be able to run the football plaque pass the qb movements and then As less mentioned earlier in a press conference the screen game. You've gotta mix in screens effectively in your system. You ought to be physical upfront. That goes without saying you. Want to be dominant. their control. The line of scrimmage all that and that's where the run game comes in. But i think you're seeing that you've seen the identity a little bit kind of rear its head up in these games and then it goes back down because we haven't been a successful on first down into too many second longs in third along situations which get you out of who. You are a little bit as an offense. Those are things that we have to focus on continue to work at and going each of the mindset at with that mindset in that conference level of your recall when he got asked that question. There was a big sigh before he got it. Like you kind of want to think about it and then the answer is bad like first of all. He really comes back to this. Were not good enough on first down stuff far too often like that's not like i don't think he's using as excused. But your offense shouldn't just be good because you're good on. I now it's a big part of it of course but like Answer wire not on first down then to sell like but all the things that he mentioned as far as what he wants. But like the identity of football team. Quarterbacks been bad Able to run the football they actually have run the football but he won't do it Black action pass ineffective because teams. Don't believe they're gonna run the ball lot. Qb movements he has not gotten carson wentz out of the pocket as much as he should have. in fact jack mclean asked him about that I believe on wednesday. Doug even admitted yet. We got to get out of the pocket a little bit more Destroying game has been absolutely horrid like not even like it's like not effective. It's been like outright bad. I mean like team seat common. And it's never even they're not even like even completing these screen passes like a defensive lineman covering up the running back almost immediately and carson wentz either have to try to make some foolish running play out of or he's gotta throw it out of bounds thrown at the feet or whatever screen. Name has been absolutely awful. Which you know. Maybe you can blame on sir. The lack of continuity along the offensive line. But i think the bigger issue there is just that that a very organized offense right now. What you kinda need to have training and you want to be physical upfront. They certainly haven't been that real at times when they've got the running game going. Okay fine but i think for the most point for the most part like their offensive line. You have injuries and stuff there to smith you playing that a little bit. But that that has traditionally been like the one aspect of the team the calendar for them to be good and they just haven't been good this year so really the a like all the things that he named after like not additionally like not big sure how to answer the question. He named has been really bad this year. So great. I mean like who could have seen this coming. The eagles not hiring an offense coordinator like doing the simple basic thing like the expected thing. Everyone wanted an not working out. Not that like maybe do that. And everything is fixed with that. Move but my point here is. I think a common theme throughout the coaching staff decision. There you just highlighted getting ready grow and bringing in the new guys And then even through the front office moves a common like tre tre threatened line trendline one of those whatever. A common theme is that common like he gets mind. Okay there's hubris here like it's just like they think they know so much more than they know they don't realize how much they don't know it and it's like yeah you know what will sign a third defensive tackle to a ton of money even though weirdest to We don't need we don't the andrea or stuff on digs aren't established wide receiver. We'll just rely on the draft. Even though we've never really hit on that position ever under howie roseman. That's fine like there's so much arrogance here and it's like it's in a way you know. It's like winning the super bowl. Like undid all the humbling. That i think moving howie roseman out of the front office. Once kelly human it's directly undid all that it's like. Oh yeah actually. I knew what i was doing all along. And i need to be humble. I'd like i've just you look at all that you look at the coaching staff moved. It's like oh we don't only off the corner with like seven other guys in. Have this weird setup. it's like what are you doing. Just do the simple expected basic things. Sometimes i hate to say that because like that's so generally in the second round that's yeah exactly it's just like what are you doing. Like don't don't over think it like they just over. Think it so much and i. I don't know where that comes from. I don't know if that was from a point like we just wanna looks a little bit smarter than everyone else. It's like and i and i get. I hate to say that. Because i think sometimes you have to make daring moves in sports and be aggressive and i think the eagles credit when they doug peterson more aggressive than any other head coach into than seventeen. I was smart and that were in the health and the help the super bowl. So there's you know there's a time for ingenuity but it seems like they take it too far and it seems like they don't really know what they're doing it's like they think they know but they don't think that's fair. Jimmy i wanna tell you. Sit right there jimmy. While i tell you about. First of all the estimation nfl show is doing that again with rob steps. You can take that out. We do the debrief podcast. It's fun we get to talk about. National landscape talk eagles on their a little bit. We also talk about the other shows and to make a point here jimmy. There's so many other fun teams out there in the nfl. And it's like i'm jealous. You tell us. I looked at the miami dolphins. And they're awesome man. Like how can you not like the dolphins like specifically talked about on the show this week. Halley the dolphins are like. They were honest with themselves. They're like hey we're irrelevant. We need to tear the same down and then we can take a couple of steps back. Take a step back to a couple of steps forward. And that's what they did and other going be the playoffs. Probably they might win the afc us and they might have like a top five pick. The texans are terrible. Yes oh. I just wish that you've got to be honest with themselves is my point so check that out.

I guess the upcoming schedule because it really just brutal over the next five weeks so this upcoming week. Of course there. In cleveland at home. They faced the team that the they're just owns their soul in the seahawks. They play in green bay than they have the other team that owns their soul at home in the saints. And then they play in arizona against the cuyler. Murray led cardinals Than they wrap it up against To nfc east opponents I in dallas in at home against football teams are very quickly. alicia run through. Gimme win-loss predictions. At browns may be win. You know what really. Wow okay oga tonight into at that site the seahawks loss. I've lost the browns by the way. So you've lost seahawks loss at packers loss loss saints loss loss at card. Although yes you know. James winston might be starting to drew brees. We'll see but not matter at cardinals loss loss at cowboys. I mean not a win. I mean not locked that they wind off a win. Yeah i'm with you there. That's that one could get dicey. Because i don't know we'll see how they play going forward. The cowboys Just had their by expect them to not be. Continue to be good as the season goes down but And it might not be as big of a joke like you know gilbert through one game at least in we'll see if he reverts kilo daltons coming back this week. Okay low if down again. But i feel like did you watch that full game. The steelers team yet the garrett gilbert gain. Yeah no because like the announcers all throughout that whole game like this gilbert. He's really shown up in here is terrible. You didn't play well on these people watching the same gate. Like i guess he was. Okay early in the game. And that's rather than to nucci though that gave them built equity throughout the course of the rest of the game but he wasn't good night game what do you look at. I think it was eight minutes and then football team week. Seventeen week seventeen their honestly loss. Yeah okay. I got lean on that one. So it's a very brutal stretch I mean if they win this week as you think they will that's That would be a i saw on twitter. Bryan burke from espn puts out like the the win or the the playoff leverage of ability Like they it's such and such percent likelihood if it's whatever i think. The eagles differential is like it was around twenty five percent. I wanna say it was four percent so if they win this game they add twenty five percent. Likelihood of bacon placidly lose and it's weird against like an afc team at that. But i think the difference here is that like really any win at all for an nfc team is like three wins. Like if they went to war games they went two more games the rest of the year just two more they get the five and ten and then that requires all the rest of the teams of i mean it requires the giants to win to win through requires the win three more games and they have but six games left so they got a five hundred dollar as the way and then the football team in the cowboys would each either one of those teams have to win. Four more games and that's not gonna happen like eagles. Magic number from their perspective is really just kind of like win. Two more games shouldn't be that hard to hear his kitten or not areas mccoo. What's wrong name for him yes. Aj aj jay feely. It's kristen roja roach. Realtors father's name was albert. He passed away. My father's name was james. He passed away So we mixed us together. Aj so we named our cat named this cat after data Yes the crew. Putting i so i thought we'd play a game here this week. We'll call it quality the wheel front office. We gotta come up better named with us but for now just call the wheel of bad front office. We can solicit ideas. We'll take ideas for that list. Should we hashtag that on hashtag. Bgn wheel okay. That's get and we need to the wheel of let and basically what what will do is spend the wheel. The wheel will tell us which -sition group We have to show how the front office is screwed up at positional group over the last few years Anyway we'll just we'll just been wheel. It's wide receiver. Oh i think we gotta find a wheel that doesn't take fourteen seconds to run anyway wide receiver. So that's a fun. One to get started on. That was already predetermined. I promise first of all we should mention. I won't call in front of the pod friend of me in front of you. She'll kapadia put out a win conference of the podcasts. Yeah why wouldn't you was my secret. I don't know now. I just don't know what friend of the pod weeds like he's desmond guest on the podcast as far as i know. But he's a friend of both you. And i so i guess he's in front of the pot will come from the pod. He put out a great piece. Was it yesterday or recording. This on thursday morning by the way but on wednesday on the athletic she'll put out good piece where he just rolling hammered eagles on a bunch of different stuff and one of the one of the categories was The wide receiver group. But that. I just made mistake after mistake after mistake. And it's easy to point out like should have drafted this guy instead of that guy. I don't really like doing that so much except with the eagles like they're very clear players that i thought or more talented than the player that they eventually wound up with and like it was plain to see by sort of like ignatius. People like me or you the cover. The team were like national guys evaluate you know. Give draft grades and and you sort of rank receivers or whatever positions those guys in clearly. This player is better than that player. or guys in free agency. That were clearly better fits appetite. No hindsight media's where. I'm going this so like you look at. I mean it's easy to just point to just take turns. Should we in fact. Let's let's do it this way. Let's do and we're just going on the flyer. Let's just do a draft of the worst wide receiver moves of. The eagles have made the last since twenty eighteen. We'll go you want the first pick. Yeah awesome jeffrey. Giving him a guaranteed year for note. That would've been number one of my board. It's a disaster. They basically flush ten million dollars down the toilet and basically subsequent handling of an through that. I'm counting in there like yang on the roster all the season this year disown canoga burning roster spot. Yes for sure. I mean like eat it. He played his first game week ten. He could have gone up and been a not canada roster spot for the first six weeks of the season so instead like there's that's one last roster spot the half or maybe a younger player who might contribute might nap and maybe have them for the future. Whatever but really just the to like the the redone deal that they did with him. Real only saved them like a million two million bucks or something like that but the downside was that he might not be good player anymore. And you're guaranteeing now ten million of money's basically like i said just flushed ten million dollars toilet that they really could use an of course they're heading into a twenty twenty one off season where they are really gonna cap strapped all right so it might turn picnic draft. Yeah okay. we'll sneak it. I will take the layup here. And i'll go drafting. Jj fago iside over decay metcalf yup freeze missouri. I don't think we need to go too. Deep into that one number i will. I will add on that when the team makes a decision like that. Is it so unthinkable that they messed up another a wide receiver evaluation funny to me. We'll get to this other thing. I'm referring to but yes. Make an expert with my third pick. I won't go draft again here. I'll go relying on the schon. Jackson do stay healthy. I can't believe they did this. During the twenty twenty season there are plenty of other wide receivers available on the open market That they could have gone with They could have signed robby anderson. Of course who actually lasted him. Free agency like into april. I believe so. He was just sitting there like waiting for some seem decided he signed like this like ted million like that with the panthers twenty two years. Twenty s or ten million. I think we talked about this on the last pot actually But yeah robby. Anderson was there. He could've gone other directions. Rashad perriman maybe not as successful with the jets but probably would be somewhere else. He was another option but instead they go back to the sean knowing full well that he's not gonna make through a season healthy and right away goes down. Weeks was week three as the bengals or is a week to doesn't who cares doesn't matter he's gone quickly comes back. It's hurt again. He's out again. Maybe for the season we'll say but a clearly a player that they should not have relied on going into the twenty twenty season. And it's important to remember that like the gave on an extension after trading him. it's only discussed. The trade was barely anything. Lot swapped late round picks but they gave him an extensive that almost made it like a free agent. Signing at that point sean jackson has been available for twelve percent of the eagles of snaps. At least he was at the time of injured reserve. I haven't even factored in now of what could available for so by the time he went and i are earlier. This series only available for twelve percent of the snaps possible to him since returning to philly Also he quoted hitler so yeah not great Pretty positive way he quoted hitler. Yes quote hitler. As long as you're saying hitler's jerk. I'm staying away from that one pm. You probably should stay. With hiller no hitler or anti hiller on this no okay that's a that's a stance we have Okay so those are two totally agree. Yeah robby anderson About that needle that sense they showed interest in him prior to what the golden state trade. He was on their radar. Before yes like you. It wasn't like this guy was like some unknown about guy on their radar and they just said nope So yet that stupid. And i wanna say to me that my pick next year is the jalen rigor last justin jefferson dynamic. Because i wrote an article about this on bleeding grenades dot com. You can go check it out. A lot of people are mad and angry. Every time i feel like bring up. Justin jefferson because quote. It's is good. Well is he though we really know that. So far and look. I'm not gonna say i'm down on deal in regular because i'm not. I'm not giving up on him. Saw some good things and training camp you know. He obviously made some plays or a play down the field in week one. But it's not just about like being okay or fine like there's opportunity costs here. I don't think people understand that the way people talk they you have to measure of what you could have had the deal. Breaker pick isn't need in vacuum. And when you look at how well. Justin jefferson has done. I mean he's the top wide receiver in terms of football. Outsiders metrics tv away. A are a second overall by pro football focus. Es four hundred plus yards in nine games this year he looks awesome. There's like nothing. He can't do basically this idea that he was only a slot receiver with ridiculous. This isn't just hindsight analysis. Like you were saying to me earlier. This wasn't that we both said that. Justin jefferson made so much sense for this team. Like maybe he wasn't the perfect fit in terms of a mold but like why did fit matter so much because the eagles had so much they'd nothing wide receiver like. They didn't need a perfect fit. They need a very good wide receiver and they passed on getting one who had a really good profile to make you believe this was like a safe. A safe of pick that you could have gotten average twenty one because it was such a good bet if you made this bat and justin jefferson turned out to be a bust like i feel like you would still feel good about the decision making process is he'd be like there's so many things appointed him being good. That like okay. He didn't work out while at stinks but But with rigor. I think there was more risk I wanna revisit this tweet from daniel jeremiah. Who our roseman wanted to hire as you reported back yet day. That top personnel chief. The joe douglas scott Dental jeremiah said after the draft. The eagles really wanted speed regular provides that i have my fourteenth raided layer justin jefferson mice fifty six player jalen raider. It'll be fascinating Their careers that's basically the most critical. You're gonna see panel. Share might be of the eagles office. So and then there's that video to of like the vikings dislike like incredulous as jaylen regular off the board before justin jefferson. Then they're like get the pick pick pin like the eagles did waste offers Biz run up to the podium. Yeah it's at the podium But it's even crazier to me in the context of like well first of all this idea that denison like wouldn't be having success year. Whatever that's garbage to me and like the idea that regulars definitely good like we didn't watch our roseman drafted er whiteside over decay. Met catholics impossible that the road the right choice for the wrong choice. Then the last thing on this get long winded. But i think it's even more terrible that they passed on jefferson to get regular at this point because they put all their eggs in the basket at getting that number one are getting that answer wide receiver at twenty one. He said they didn't sign anyone in predency. They didn't added the andre hopkins like they could have like. They put all their eggs in the basket. All the stock into get into nailing that number twenty one pick and they did not know that number one hundred at least so far so i remember my perspective watching the draft unfold The team that you really have to worry about in my opinion at Like i had them taken jefferson if he made it down to the team that i thought they had to worry about was the raiders who were picking nineteenth but they took rugs they too bad too. I on picks like in in in the first twenty picks so they rugs with the twelfth overall pack and nineteen weren't gonna take a wide receiver that point so i actually thought eagles might try to trade up into that. Pick the to get ahead of jacksonville. Which badly needed by receiver. Help to twenty. And then they didn't treat out. They didn't do that so i thought okay. Well he's probably gonna go here. Twenty jefferson is and then they took that lsu. Pass rusher chase on Jason so all right well here it is. Here's jefferson like. I'm like i'm like i my curiously typing up. My eagles take jefferson. Pick like it comes across the screen. Rager and i'm like you gotta be kidding me home ready to go fire off. Publish the article. So i'd like lead everything. Start over with without jalen rager. I couldn't believe didn't take jefferson and the explanation that was given on it. Was that us. Speedy outside lane. Receivers are harder to find than these high volume slot types which is what they thought Justin jefferson was so they not This wasn't a situation where they got evaluation wrong in terms of like the harder stuff like the players. Mentality like andre diller. For example i think was questions about you know Can he make. There's no question about Athletic ability of questions about his mentality and making the nfl So that's harder to do. But the the actual player evaluation is the easy part and this is a guy like from lsu small school hireling some like d two player. That's a little bit. Maybe harder to evacuate as easing evaluations. You can probably find national yet. National championship team like it should have been valuation for them. I usually like i'm not. I'm no expert. I could see like he could play on the outside. he wasn't just solely a slot receiver. Today have more success in the slot than he did on the outside when he was only nineteen years old. Sure of course he did. But i can still do both. And he's tearing up the league now as you mentioned so i thought that was just a total by jeff jefferson. I even think that they thought jefferson was the better player but they just sort of focused in on that one really nice attribute that rigor has which is speed. And i think as a result they messed up at tech. This goes back to the overthinking things to me. Like justin jefferson right now ranks a second in the nfl tied with decay. Metcalf funny enough at eighteen point three yards perception. Plenty enough of a big play threat. Yeah absolutely he ranks fourth at six point six yards after cats reception. Wouldn't that be nice. Someone on on the eagles can actually catch the ball and then take off with it like he had been everything they needed. Obviously they didn't take him so whatever. You're not coming back. He's letdowns done. But like i absolutely fair to compare these two like i've seen so much pushback on the thing you are you. Can't it's early in his career. You can't say. I'm not writing them off but like it is absolutely relevant. That jefferson is looking great. And i don't mean to like harp on this on rigors part like i think he's a good young king kid from what i now. He's only twenty one years old Will you work hard. He wants to get better. Like i'm not questioning any of that. But like you have to look at this and it's a huge indictment of the front office. Is that our our only picture. He's now ivan ivan to more pets. I'll use my snake to. He's already getting asked about justin jefferson. Which my opinion will too soon for that like we can you and i can talk about it. Like fans can talk about it and You know we can compare those two players because that's just what sports is but laura the start asking this guy about another player that was drafted after roy. Ten nine games. it is career Many of which he had been al injury. So i thought that was. Maybe a little bit unfair to the kid do that. He already deleted his twitter account. Which i think is actually good for him to do sort of maybe block out some of the outside noise and and just focus on what he has to be player But it's a is already feeling sort of what i would call the difficulty of playing in this market where he would may be experiencing the same level of pressure a heightened expectations in a lot of other cities. So i think i don't have another pig got got keep it. Let's keep going I mean i'm supposed to. But i don't even know what i'm going to this point I was ear pick now. You already took it text. You know the one out jefferson. Oh i guess. I can loop a not trading for establish wide receiver in there like deandre hopkins stefan digs. I kind of talked about that in their out a loop that in let's finish up with your two picks so i only have one more since you took. I'm gonna say meal stretching exercising the fifth year option on nelson angler. Sure i mean you paid him. What was it was it nine nine or nine point. Four million baby nine and a half million to to get a one last season. A bad season Out of nelson is a very bad season out of nelson agholor. Who by the way Is doing some nice things for the raiders. Now i think he's on still has but prior to this prior to week ten anyway. He was averaging over. Twenty yards per catch has a handful of touchdowns of big plays So it's just a what other players go somewhere else and have success Nothing excites eagles. Fans more than than to point that out and there's some good examples that this year with a aguilar. I haven't really followed super closely. What city jones and rizzo bug was have done in jacksonville and carolina respectively. I don't know like. I haven't watched them actually play but i knew that they both made some plays along the way so user they've been getting hammered known aguilar to corners a little bit this year.

Espn radio one. Fifty six for final segment. Do me time once again for our. Nfc's picks so don't have dropped for that saw one of my own looking at the records. Here jimmy i gained the giants i can. We discuss. joe. Judge marc colombo. Were you can get into that in that game while they don't have a game this week have well. We'll we'll just let me read you this weekend. Shut up anyway on teen fifteen. I gained some ground new fifteen fourteen so leaving tentacles all season the nfc speaks against the spread. What i notably was. The accuracy of those records is a eagles straight up enough. Six and three. You're four foreign ones. I gained ground. Clyde the dines winning all right so now let's get into the giants since the cost to them and this is the team they lost to the team that you're about to talk about right now. Yeah i mean. They reportedly while i guess initially reportedly will first of all before we get to the reportedly they judge fired mark colombo who is their offensive line coach Then reportedly is the into a fistfight and judge fired and because of that then a bunch of giants reports came out. This is i mean you can tell from their wording. It's all clearly coming from the team that there was no fistfight but there was some kind of like heated back and forth I guess joe judge had earlier in the week or the week before brought in the former patriots offensive line coach at never know how to pronounce his name. It starts with the day super italian name. But he's well respected them with the patriots for a super long time and colombo did not like having that added offensive line influence in building Was maybe a little bit miffed. That joe judge himself had sort of I guess What's the word. I'm looking for here. Sort of was involving himself a little bit. Too much in Joe judge i talked to some giants be reporters before the game on sunday. And i mean there's just other people in the press box like before like flex screw you man what's not flex anyway They were like they got this crazy. Joe judge wanted to implement this weird. I guess rotation along the offensive line like three or four. Different offensive tackles would play in the game And then like three or four. Different interior offense alignment would kind of shuttle in and out of the game. which never. actually. I was actually looking for that during the game because i was gonna. I was hopeful that make fun of it if it didn't work and they never did. It transpired so i wonder if you know sort of their Fight was a result of partly because of the hat again like as reporter is because he brought in sort of awful consultant as well but it looks to me like in a fight actually happened the way that you see like some of these tax from Giants reporters and national reporters. Like the way they worded. It still kind of sounds like some kind of light happened so my takeaway on this like is dominated by this by the garbage like weird team. That doesn't have their stuff together. In my opinion on the field or off of it even though they're playing better recently But the for the for the eagles to have gotten dominated by this team that like reported beginning fistfights with our coaching staff is Not a good sign. Yeah definitely sign of a healthy franchise dominated by the team. S guitar picks for this week with the football team were one and a half point favorites against the bengals. Yeah In a tough one because the bengals are bad but i had the bengals winning this game outright because i think in my picks i pointed out that the bengals haven't won a road game since i think it was week. Four of twenty eighteen. Of course they tied the eagles this year. So that's the best they've done on the road In that span. But it's been a long time since they've won a game now. Meanwhile you have this garbage. Nfc's that we've Sort of talked about all year. I think they're now to eighteen and one against teams outside of their own division The football team is owned five in those games. So something's got to give their either the nfc either football going win that game outside their division or the bengals or filing a win a row game and for my perspective. I just can't bet on anything. Nfc east right now. So i took the bengals and it's fair but i'm gonna take the football team. Has that bengals offensive. Line is bad. And i think it's still think the washington defense is good or at least it's a solid unit. The very worst and alex smith did some things to get to get the washington back into the game last week. Yes so whatever. It doesn't matter who cares the world's going to end on the team one and a half basically pick him anyway. next up we have the wrong. The dallas football cowboys at the minnesota. Vikings in vikings have just one way in a row within yourself three or four in a row now they will want and five. So yeah. what are they re. I think four or five years so they went through neuro. Vikings are seven point favorites against those cowboys. Yeah so the cowboys have some things going for them. I guess in that. Like i said earlier in the podcast coming off their bye looking to get any back so they have that long rest. And then you the vikings who are you know. They're going to play this game on short rest because they played monday night. But i mean i just can't get past the cowboys and vikings actually like. You mentioned the three game winning streak diploma better and i expect First of all they're in. I think. Mike zimmer is in full on like job preservation mode so he's just going to run the living crap out of doubt and cook as he's done all year down cook is either either first or second in the nfl in rushing yards despite missing a little bit of time. But they're just going to hammer the run against this soft cowboys defense and i think that's the only formula they do in this game yet and an cover that justin jefferson is going to go off on cowboys. So i will do is going to be out. He they just added him to are so. In addition to their poor run defense they are going to be depleted in their secondary as well. That's fund eggs Trae monday sorry. Yep new human Yuck confused for the vikings exactly. Yeah so we're both taking the vikings minus seven there but then to me. It's time to get into the eagles game this week. The eagles the philadelphia football eagles are what here. I lost the out the three other standard three point underdogs. The browns are favored by three. What do you have in this one in terms of both spread and then score prediction. So i know some people think that the browns are maybe a little overrated based on their six do not. They're not as good as their six and three record would indicate and if you look at their point differential. There's an argument to be made for that because their minus twenty eight. You don't see often for a team. At six and three eagles twenty years right at twenty nine browser only one point better on point differential bubbling. Actually look at their games like they got blown out and week one against much of the steelers game but it was one of those two and then they upload your later week sixty dollars for a they got. They got beaten by thirty one. I believe by the steelers zubi by thirty two and one of those games a by thirty one. So they've they've had to really awful games but you know you don't forget about those games but if you do set those two to the side there are legitimate look like a legitimate playoff contender. In my opinion. I didn't realize how good their offensive line is until i really started to dig in am a little bit this week in not only good but like super lasik Every one of those five players across the board has posted all their spider charts in five matches to watching whatever and they're all very impressive athlete. So it's probably a even fletcher coke. Said it's the best offensive line. They'll see this season and Eight they have that going for them. They have those those two running backs. Nick chubb and kareem hunt going for them now. Leave done a good job stopping running backs in the run game this year. They have been horrible. China stop Quarterbacks wide receivers and tight ends whenever those guys have grown with it on sort of misdirections jet sweeps etc But they've done a good job against running backs still hard matchup for them with with hunt and chubb and then defensively myles garrett is awesome dude like he's got he's got nine point five sacks so far this year as four forced fumbles. I just happen to take a look at all those sacks and none of them are cheese like he is absolutely slaughtering Mostly left tackles. Does he did up a couple of sacks against the cowboys. I guess they put him against the tarrant steel in that game they wanted to exploit that matchup and then he had a sack or to from from the other. You just one actually from inside forget with game that was against but he is absolutely destroying offense alive and they are not cheap statistical sacks. They are all very wellard and he does a great job of getting the ball out when he does get to the quarterback. So i would imagine they're gonna put him up against gp all day. And i fear for the type of game at j.p. Maybe in foreign this one. So like i think the browns are just a better team and those three things that need to the very good offensive line. The one to running back combo and myles garrett are far more than what the eagles have going for them. And i've i've the browns win. This game was the score. I'm gonna go twenty six to twenty and again. It's not that close all so yeah you covered some of this. I don't think the browns Their six three records. Just when you look at that point differential and also their only twenty first in devi away. So i don't think they're a good team and that's kind of where my not optimism in the eagles is not really any kind of belief in them. As i just think the browns are not terrible but they're not quite as good as we look at that six and three record so you know. I think the eagles are coming off this terrible loss in. I think there could be some kind of bounceback that to some extent. I look at baker mayfield. He's been inconsistent. This year is ninety. Passer rating ranks twenty third among quarterbacks jewish horses run defense ranks thirteenth. We always know. They're good at stopping running backs. He will remind you not so much. The quarterbacks and wide receivers But in terms of like the browns identity which really earlier in the season especially when they're having success was about running the ball in limiting the times baker mayfield had the throw and i think you'll kind of have they might have what it takes to the. Stop that in kind of pull out a win here. I i had eagles losing to the giants in my prediction. Coming out of the by and i said i think they will win one of the next two games and i had them winning the brown some kind of sticking with that guy And again is not anything to do with like a vote of confidence in eagles. Twenty second point as you pointed out in the twenty nine now in devi away. Only the bengals. The broncos in the new york football jets are worse than the eagles. Right now do a great place to be when he spend the second most money in the nfl and your roster when you're just a total garbage t so Yeah gut over logic. Yep we'll also because it'd be frustrating to like it'd be it'd be nice release that they win arab if they just lose and we can kind of all admit. This team is bad and like they can stop actually be tending to contend in the nfc east and have been meaningful It would be better if that happens so it won't happen in in spite of everyone they will win this game. Something like some weird score on the say like nineteen the sixteen people be posted like the michael corleone gatt. Just when i think the one thing. I think the one way i think they can win. This game is baker mayfield ipad. There's no. There's no excuse for baker mayfield not tearing up this year because of that offensive line because of those two running backs and they have good. Receivers jarvis landry previously before he tours. Acl odell beckham. junior earn rashard hanes o. k. Austin hooper. They signed su. There's really no excuse for him to not tearing up this year and he's not a very good season so maybe they get a bad game at bater rand and they can make some plays on defense. So that's their best chance of winning this game in my opinion righty now. The everyone's excited for this week. Seem final thoughts it. We were very negative on this podcast and rightfully so but Yeah but far as final thoughts go As you said by house cowards. Come on what are you doing. Why house some right to sell. Empathic delays discount podium fifteen go checkout libby ballers or your sixers draft coverage on espionage inside out new back back to a for I kills it. Oh yeah yeah so a lot of good sixers coverage out there sixers much more. I can't believe i'm saying this. Because i was at a point with them where i was very checked out on them. But you know the daryl morey they hooked me back in my own thing. Is there because i'm back in on the sixers thing. They had a nice drop their entire east. Maxi up other guys here. I still think there's work to be done. Not hardly a championship get their. They're heading in the right direction. Al horford is gone so that his family to yes. They are support as well. I the thing that makes me jealous and relevant to the is dislike. I look at these smart front offices. And i'm like i just wish the eagles were smart front office. I really do. It's just it's more fun to cover and it's the fans care more to and it's just like it's nice to have trust in them. You know like daryl. Morey makes a move. You're like all right like we know he's good so even if this move like you know how to feel about it right away. Typically not doesn't mean every moves workout. It's perfect but you see the process by. Oh yeah i can see this. This makes sense. It feels like it's been forever since the eagles did that. Something of a legitimately smoggy note united made a trade. But you don't know what the trade is yet a on but like you either the feeling. Okay well i trust that. They did a good deal Or more recently in eagles case. Whoa god what they do exactly so. I wish it wasn't like that and that's my final. Take the end the podcast here on.

Rick tiddle is the father of my child but I'm one hundred percent. Sure. Rick tittle is a jackass. Out Hurts my feelings. Oh my gosh. Welcome back to the show rectal with you coast to coast. They're going to look back yesterday we had a tie. Ties like kissing your sister. They used to say it all the time I was in high school football ties like kissing your sister. And we would always laugh I. Guess that's not pc anymore but I remember one guy went what does that mean? And this guy next band buses like you get to kiss a girl, but it's your sister. So doesn't count. It's like wait what. Explained to you. The Eagles are hosting the bengals. Now everybody. Got This game. Wrong. Show me the person that predicted a tie. No one ever predicts I if you did. You need to get in the car and go to a casino right now Carson Wentz two more interceptions in this game but you'll borough through for over three hundred yards two touchdown passes and zero interception. Joe Borough. Capped team from losing. That's what it was in his first win now and I'm sure that's frustrating for him. Earl said, this is a loss to me. We didn't win. That's all it is to me. If you don't win, you'll lose. That's the mindset for me. I like it. Now They were looking at Ellen three start where the eagles. And wentz drove the eagles seventy five yards down the field in the final three minutes. And he had to get it done and he said tying fun. It's an awkward Awkward Way to end the game. Acura Taylor the. Head coach of the Broncos, Broncos bengals he said I've never tied in my life so feel strange for sure I. Know It sure as Hell doesn't feel like we won. That's what I can tell you for. Sure. But you know whence ran for one he actually ran for sixty five yards. When the Bengals took the lead by one seventeen, sixteen in the third quarter borough completed all seven of his passes for seventy eight yards. Up, third down conversions and a four yard touchdown, pass the Higgins. wentz was picked by Leshan Sims on the ensuing possession. The bengals took over at the forty four they gotta fill. And with three minutes left there it was twenty three to sixteen. Jalen hurts or the? Eagles had to have him took a snap out of the shotgun with wins lined up at wide receiver. Why are they did get a first down on it They just have to do it, but once has thrown. except. Three Straight Games. It never done that in two straight games before the season he stone seven interceptions. It's It's pretty insane. When says I gotTA BE BETTER I know that Burrow, he got sacked eight times in fact are Brandon Brandon? Graham had two apiece. Taylor said we just can't have a free run a defensive lineman come cleaned every single time. That's something we've got to fix right away. Well. Angles Receiver John or awesome for him the fastest guy on draft from Washington. Ninth Overall Pick. He didn't play. And he was healthy. Yeah to catches the first two games and he's going to be a free agent after the year, and you just have to wonder if this is some sort of Mike Brown mind game with him. I mean, you think about the eagles staff to go to. San. Francisco. Santa Clara next week. and. That's not going to be fun for them. I just I don't see it happening and that's because the niners are good. Team I. I predicted the Niners to win that game even though we knew. There was no Garoppolo and no kettle and no. You know for the season now both and company, they're gonNA play on a field that they hated. That I said, they had enough on the run game and they had enough defensively to get it done and nick mullins stepped up admirably. Ended up throwing the ball thirty six times. You don't let a guy throw ball thirty, six times unless you have some faith in. Him. He did throw a touchdown pass. which was great for him. He threw a touchdown pass to. Wilson ended up with no picks three, hundred and forty three yards. Here's Daniel Jones. The through thirty two times seventeen of thirty two. Basically fifty percent no touchdowns and a pick. Now, here's the thing. No saquon Barkley. It was going to be tough for the giants who are Oh and three. So the dumb thing is they're going to be people who are saying that mullins. Is Better Than Garoppolo Look at this point, just win the game that's gotTa worry about it, and you can get into your quarterback controversy. But now we saw last year or two years ago and has to play a lot. And Kyle Shanahan. It wear a mask he got fined one hundred K.. As did gruden some other coaches for not doing it? Shanahan said we pulled together throughout the week. I just got a really good energy and vibe from the guys. and. Nick, mullins was really poised. So as I mentioned what the Niners, how they get the eagles coming over, and then the giants go to Los Angeles. And face the rams for the first time since nineteen, ninety, four but that. All right. Let's go to my man up there in Michigan. Got Robert How you doing Robert. While you make. What's up being it could be in. A medic. Michigan. America. Exchange. Yeah, good, day to you. I just wanted to maybe revert to a show from last week you had on the gale Sayers interview, and then little bit later you had. A press writer from Washington kind had these spontaneity sponsor spontaneous sports glimpses. You know it's kind of magical things. That kind of stuck with me I was thinking about those over the weekend even. Oh. Really. It's kind of you know we can always just. So you know turn on sportscenter and reading scores and games but when you kind of get. On Nettie, it's kind of it's kind of. Its own life in a way. All spontaneous on this show. Yeah? Yeah. Good deal. Also the Miami Heat. My, I'm having a guard there. Kendrick Nunn he played for a little while and Golden State. He might have had a cup of coffee and Golden State. This. To? You? Jean for the most part. I forgot if he did play tell you the truth. Yeah He. Well. He matriculated where I related at Oakland University. University which is in Michigan. Exactly right near the Palace of Auburn Hills. We always hear about them right around March madness. They always seem to have a pretty good basketball program. Well. It's a mid major in the league. Doesn't really move the needle to much Players into the pros and and you're like my school Saint Mary's mid major make a little noise down then. Yeah. Same Coach for thirty five years Things like that. So. That's all good. WHO's the coach? Gregg campy. His name. Thirty five. P. E. Greg campy. He's Been There I. Think Thirty five years. and. If I'm days would just expect there'd be some sort of scandal in that time. It's kind of Nice to know that the guy can that long and get her done. That's true. So. That's high school. It was they call it the liberal arts of the. Midwest and I really enjoyed it because I was the first person in my family to to go to. To get a degree. So Ed met the whole world to me. It's still does it's still means a whole lot to me. I really learned lot there and I can't say enough good about Oakland University. That's great. Yeah My. Dad Was the first guy and his family or my mom's family to go to college actually. Yeah Yeah, so good. Lions woke up yesterday that was kind of a nice little thing. Actually. Put in a real good effort even if they would've lost the game, you could you know I'm a little bit older. So I kinda just okay. Well, at least they put in a good effort, but they pulled it out anyway. So it was nice to kind of needed. That was the first win in eleven months. Can you believe that? Yeah on eleven game. And to eighty of Detroit's all like taking depress. And the cardinals have to. Be a little bit shocked by that but cuyler Murray. Did Not have a good game. He threw three picks. Three. Yeah he was. He's streaky he's on and off. So he got an off day I. Guess You could say. So that was always a good thing. So Do you remember the man's name from The Washington? Star who wrote those? Who wrote the book? From last Wednesday. The Washington Dr. He wrote he was your guest. He was that he wrote that book about. Remember when he was went to Capitol San hair and he saw. Some invalid guy who never spoke to anybody, but then he sat next to him and told them. showed him this metal and all of that. Olympics. Oh real nice segment. I, mean the full year.

That was the story of the kid who said look what I want and he got tears in his eyes. That was pretty good. Yeah Yeah. That's kind of what I meant about the spontaneity of things in life you know. It's different than just the all Detroit beat Saint Louis Twenty six to twenty three okay. Okay It's not like anything kind of magical anything. That's why I couldn't be a reporter because reporters have the tough job of just reporting the facts and to me I would have to.

Or years ago with Roxy hit three, forty, eight and this year he had three, sixty four. At Tim Anderson Second David. Fletcher. Earn Jose. Abreu. Fourth And That's pretty amazing. But there was history also made in the National League Because Juan Soto the phenom with the nats, he won the batting title getting fifty. One. And he is now the youngest player ever. When the nationally batting title. He said for me it doesn't matter the age if you deserve it, you deserve it will. Yes, he did. And Pete Reiser in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, one with the Brooklyn dodgers. Won It. As a twenty, two year old. So he beat out him he batted three, forty three, that year wants. So this year three, fifty one. Eating out Freddy Freeman. Or Zealous in trade turner, his teammate and Donovan Solano at the giants who was benched yesterday some giants fans are mad about that. But Ready. Freeman hit three forty one. When is three forty one? Not when you a batting title well, when you play a sixty game season. I'm telling you now for one hundred and sixty two games in those but those averages obviously wouldn't be that high but.

Quick Reminder everybody to subscribe our. Youtube Channel and click that pesky notification bell and joining me today is an author and a teaching pastor Nathan Finocchio. Welcome to the Rubin report. As to be here this. I'm glad to have you sir because as you probably know I do some talking to people of faith. People. Better skeptics people that are somewhere in between and I always find these to be sort of the most interesting conversations that I have. So before we do anything about what you're doing now tell me a little bit about your journey to. Yeah. So I'm the son of a preacher man, my dad. Is the ministry as long as I can remember. And I've sort of just fallen into speak went on I. I try to have not necessarily run the other way, but do something else and sort of caught up to mate. You know it's like you know. So just kind of what I do now is kind of what I know but I do. I do have I've always had a strong faith in. God. I just never saw myself as the ministerial type because. People have faith I. Guess Spiritual Leaders They Kinda type in my opinion there mike kind of square and. They stay home on Friday nights and Blake scrabble with grandma as we're going to do with my life, you know. Hey don't knock scrabble man everybody loves scrabble look I take that back. Okay. Scrambled his great and grandma's wonderful. Well to your point though you Kinda, it's like. Well, wait a minute look this guy he doesn't really look like a pastor and then on the other hand, you look like sort of a modern Jesus. So you're you're of doing a little everything over there. It's you know it's a work in progress. Did you on the way you said, you did a little something before going into this even though you came from a family of faith. Was the faith part always there or did you mean that you deviated from that to where or did you just mean that sorta career wiser something else I just meant that sort of career. Wise. I, was doing music. For about eight years and. So yeah, it's a kind of doing that and things just didn't work out the way I kind of wanted them to workout I sort of went back to. Went back to the family farm so to speak, and so I'm just doing ministry now for the last. Gosh. No Last six years. So if somebody said, you SORTA lay out what your belief system is would that be kind of broadly speaking Yes. So I'm I'm a confessional Christian That's what I'd say I'm. In the kind of brand of Christianity that I'm or the stream flow in it's more of a pentecostal Christianity. Were the ones that. Have never handled a snake before but that's kind of what pentecostals floor you know tambourine destroying pentecostals. Were the ones that when you good work churches on the weekend. it's kind of like a rock concert So we got lasers at we attract a younger crowd but our idea basically is that we have A. because. This is really Isn. Killing the game right now. But you know it is what it is so. Trying to. Poke. The best you can and all fails would that's got in Vodkas for. So do you I always wonder about stuff like this because I've heard a lot of comedians talk about how you know when I come back I'm not doing. Material and I'm like well, how can you not do Kobe material when we just went through it? For six months and I don't think it's Hacky to do it. It's what we're all talking about. So how much do you weigh like I'm just gonNA write jokes but I'm also going to talk about where we're all at right now. I mean I. Think you have to address it in the room to some degree but I'm also not not a fan of. Trying to do something just because Man if I don't feel I can do it justice in terms of the. Way from Sheila comment. Don't mean you can do everything So. If it's organic, the appeals right and natural, and I can put my spin on it. Then by all means I attack. Not I got a lot of other places in my playbook. Doubt about it been around a long time and I was thinking too with you know social distancing and people wearing masks and people have had to get creative you know and. Queens. They have shows at diners where people are sitting in their cars for. Doing that. Whole thing where you. Get your response by honking horns and flashlights get no. That's something you need to do when you trying to make a name for yourself or you are desperate for money. Well, that's the thing. Some of these guys are and girls there are established they. It's not like they're dying for money, but it's almost like they're worried they're going to lose their chops. They're worried that like an athlete who hasn't played the sport for six months they they get in their own ahead and they think, oh my gosh, can I even do stand up anymore that those kind of? You know. Worries ever go to your head. Have those kind of worries without a pandemic. To me, you know I listen. I'm pretty much. Working on the road. Pretty consistently. Obviously, Kobe. Even cancel some gigs or post them but pretty much in the clubs as. Can Be. So That's enough to keep me shop. I don't need to stand in a pickup truck and have a bunch of Hornets talking with flashlights. I just held heard bill burr the other day said he went in southern California to this beach show. He said, no one was wearing a mask and they're like don't worry there's the seabreeze and he left he said I'm not going to be responsible. Everybody getting sick he if you guys aren't GonNa take this seriously then I don't want any big part of it. You know. I get it You know when it's actually time to perform. You into the crowd most people aren't wearing their math are But if I'm being honest I, prefer they not wear the mask because this is just such intimate exchange between a comedian and in an audience. Is Lot more fun when you have condom list comedy. What about this getting on the road because we know the grind you're in a new city every week in you you come home for two three days tops and it's such a grind but then again, you know it's like, wow, I forgot what it's like to get on a plane. I forgot what airports and hotels were like I mean, is it take a little bit of acclimatisation again so was kind of surreal the first week or two I'm in back at the being completely off three months. But then you know you just. Really, get back into swimming things and and since then it's just been sporadic, it's been off on off on but nonetheless, I I've gotten into a rhythm where it's kind of. Used to it again. So, during the time off, did you say you know I'm going to write a screenplay. I'm going to get into shape or were you like screw it? Every day is a new day and whatever I mean did you how did you handle the the quote? UNQUOTE FREE TIME I. Could You know I love how some people just act like let's listen. Advantage of downtime is a wonderful thing. but you know so much of a full of crap. You know we we try to come up with motivational instill now. Look the same no different from any other time you live the life of a conic home most of the time you get out on the road. So you do it or you're not you don't need you don't need a pandemic motivation. That about it last question for you at this point in your career, you've been doing it so long. Is it kind of on rails when you put together a new set a new our or do you still got to fight it? Fight being inside your own ed like for the longest time. I've been A. Sopranos Fanatic and and you know do impressions. So I was just saying I can't believe I can't do. Tony Soprano impression and then I saw this kid online i. Ego did one any nailed it and I just spent the rest of the day trying to mimic him and finally got it. So. You know I'm finally able to. Tony Soprano impression now. So in my own head I'm going what if it was good at the time or? They don't like it or you know so. It's it's a challenge trying to get out of your own way.

Former headed off head NFL head coaches. Can I talk with? Mike Ditka. Our Open one, eight, hundred, eight, seven play. Let's go to Christian in Houston a fan of the Owen in three Texans and Christian, and that first half Shawn Watson. The Texans did whatever they wanted, and in the second half, they couldn't do a damn thing and there's connor running up and down the field and the Texans are all and three your thoughts. it's been the same old story for the last. Eighteen years of his franchise being around. They. Basically build you work with such high hopes but good game or a good season, and then the second they messed up they mess up real bad and crash real hard. I mean if I don't really like talking about the Texans today after they lose. Well we're did you have a David codgers? No I wish. I. Did I mean I wish I would have probably had a jamie sharper, Jersey more than anything. Yeah But the although I don't really like talking about the Texans and they moved especially when give up a seismically. Dating all the way back of course, their mishap in January did he eventual super bowl champs but when they give up a seismic lead? Only, to lose and not even doing anything about it which was. Pretty much what they did yesterday just to. Next. Week when it comes down to them facing the Viking. I hope they get their things in order otherwise. Heads Should roll but then again, cow nearest Michelle Muno. It's just I think and I know this is an excuse but. The bad vibes with the Hopkins thing it just I know how stuff like that can sour. In Organization the as the best team in baseball, they traded cesspit as they were the worst team in the second half and then I lost the wild card game things can get sour when you see stuff like that happen. True but that's the whole thing about having other stars there to help. Build you up even know unfortunately. Sean watching I mean the show Watson can't really hold a team that can we can't rely on Jj Watt to do everything. What else is on your mind? The Houston Astros are the playoffs even two they hit to nineteen. Are you excited? Very, excited, mostly excited because I still don't have to pay. As in the first round. But I didn't really see much of anything about the. MINNESOTA TWINS I didn't do anything and. You know. What's next. But I just hope that the Astros try and. You know. At least win this series. So that the whole idiotic masses talking about trash cans and cheating I hope they don't come back the by. The thing you win this world series. And then you can say, hey, ain't got no garbage cans here kiss my but I mean it'd be a little. Little. Bit of payback on all the critics. Yeah. But the critical still say. Astronaut theme in Esto Shooting Yourself. Like I'm getting, it's like, why would he had enough of that one season? Can we please get off of that and go awesome else like, oh, Basho's place in the world series trophy. Again. Get Happen Man anything else on your mind today Okay why more topic one more topic when it comes to the upcoming schedule I've no, it's not equal. But tomorrow and Wednesday to be possibly the biggest sports days. On the planet because you've got play out baseball on ABC sports well, the SPN via ABC for the first time since ninety five. I don't know which games are going to be playing then but on Wednesday, he got play baseball on ABC. You got the NBA Finals on ABC. Potentially got game seven Stanley daily final on NBC. I've gotTa Hey. Do you think that too much sports on one day? Simply not enough or you know as a foot? Thirty thinking too much to handle. It's obviously too much to handle, but we're we're we're all for we painted ourselves in a corner or covert has painted us in a corner. I should say that Wednesday will be eight postseason games in one day I don't think we'll ever have that again. Of course, we often unfortunately only six of those will be on cable. They go Christian my man. Thanks for calling as always and let's catch up soon. Thanks for having me on. I hope to talk to you again probably by the end of this week and it's not I'll talk to you on social media and Phil de accurate settle. Thank you Christian appreciate lines are open one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, play a couple of other results. There was a real shootout up in. The Canadian border, the bills now three and the rams to and one the rams showing some fight in that game thirty, five, thirty two. But how about Josh Allen Yeah Pick but he threw four touchdown passes of my quarterback throws four touchdown passes. I don't really care about that pick. the bears and the Falcons. Man Falcons Oh and three. They were they were comfortably in charge twenty, six to ten going into the fourth quarter. At home at Mercedes Benz Dome, whatever it's called. And they put in Nick foles. What does he do? He threw a pick, but he also threw three touchdown passes. In the fourth quarter. Once again, he threw three touchdown passes. And just this morning he has been named the starter. And the bears are three now. This was another easy one. I thought Brown's beating Washington football team although. The going to the fourth quarter wash at three point lead and then the browns exploded. For? Seventeen. Points to make it a thirty, four, twenty victory. Washington one into browns are to one. DWAYNE haskins three more pigs Baker Mayfield to more picks. The Vikings lost to the titans by one in Minnesota Kirk cousins who more picks. It's the vikings are shocking. Owen? Three. And I picked them to win this game I was off by a point. The colts beat the jets thirty six to seven Sam Darnold what I say the guy is a turnover machine and yeah, they're not a good team but three more picks for that guy. and. They're already talking about drafting a quarterback next year in New York. The Panthers got their first victory and la over the chargers. And Bridgewater started obviously but so did Herbert and he touchdown pick but twenty, one, sixteen, a little bit of surprise. The donkeys are ellen three Tom Brady went into mile high and I said it's hard to win there but I did predict them to win and they did and then a very interesting game seahawks over the cowboys thirty, thirty, eight to thirty one. Football? Dak Prescott. Through a couple of picks, but three touchdown passes but how about Russell Wilson with five touchdown passes in that game? Russell Wilson. If the season ended and he didn't play another game, he might still be MVP of the League. That is the record by the way fourteen touchdown passes in three games is the NFL record last year it was broken by Patrick mahomes because he had thirteen in the first three games, I don't think a lot of us regard Russell Wilson as a gunslinger. We regarded him as a very smart quarterback who could run kind of small doesn't make mistakes can make the pass when he needs to. But he's frigging Brett Farr right now. And? Why not and the cowboys they put up a fight I mean they put thirty one points on that team, but it wasn't enough. Thirty eight thirty one. And then the packers won down in New Orleans. And this was one that I got wrong. The packers now three zero Aaron Rodgers three touchdown passes by the way drew brees is done drew brees threw three touchdown passes no picks. He's too old I. Tell You. All right. When we come back, we're going to talk to Andrew Bone, the author of a new book about recruiting and not just recruiting recruiting Alabama Crimson tide who nearly at some special here on ABC's I'd roll this Keith Jackson not the tight end come home back.

Welcome back to the show rectal with you coast to coast and around the world on American forces. Ready our our pleasure to welcome to the show author. Andrew Bone is a new book coming out tomorrow and Paperback. It's called the road to Bama incredible twists and improbable turns alongside the Crimson tide. Recruiting trail. Andrew Welcome to the show and I. Just the first thing that popped into my head was about three four years ago we had the number one running back in the nation basically up here in the bay area and Antioch and Dodgy Harris and Jim. Harbaugh was out there trying to get him to Michigan everybody was there and he chose Alabama and I don't blame him. He wants to play in the NFL. He wants to win a national championship when I was growing up here in the bay area I don't even think Alabama really looked out here. So how did this become this nationwide net that they thrill over the whole country? You're right. Yeah. Thanks for having me on and I think with Alabama really kind of going you nationwide. I. Think it really started when co saving I arrived in touch back in two, thousand, seven, two, thousand, eight. And that's when he really started. Expanding Alabama's arising, going up the top recruits in in different parts of the country and and I'll never forget. When Alabama played in the Rose Bowl against Texas SPEC in In two thousand and. TWO THOUSAND NINE SEASON And just talking to a different high school coaches and just being so impressed with. The Alabama fan base and how well they traveled and and just seeing. All the fans who are out there I think that. Really impressed. them, and of course, it you know doesn't help. Does it hurt when when you went on a bucket national championships and continuing to send players to half but Alabama done a great job recruiting different parts of the country from California to? South Florida up into the northeast. So now they've really kind of expanded their recruiting territory from not only the southeast, but but nationwide made been doing it really well for the last decade. It amazes me too because these Baria kids they usually WanNa play for PAC twelve school. When I was growing up it was UCLA USC or even if it was cal Stanford what have you and to think about Tuscaloosa and the south was almost kind of like this scary country and now Tuscaloosa seems like Oh. Yeah. Tuscaloosa Alabama whatever he's really transcended that place to just be in the normal place you would pick now you gotta give them credit. Yeah absolutely, and I and and really from a from a student's perspective. Overall, you have a you have. So. Many more out of state kid going to the versed in Alabama I think as of right now, more than sixty five percent of the student population in Tuscaloosa is from out of state and how it really attracting different play different not display of the different people from all walks of life from from California to Wisconsin to New Jersey to to south Florida Texas. It's all over the country. You know they're continuing to attract more people, and of course, when you win a lot of football games, you're able to put a lot of money and not only into the into the football program, but but also to the to the overall university. I remember there was this guy is Josh Lou Poi- who is a great recruiter that Jeff Tedford was using a cow that's how he got to Shawn Watson. That's how he got Kyle Bowler. Is there an unsung hero at Alabama that is like the main recruiter that's doing all the hard work there You? Actually in. Coasted in Alabama for a few years was a great recruiter for Alabama on the West Coast. He's he's currently with the Atlanta. Falcons but he was actually one of the ones who he's the main recruiter for Nausea Harris as a few years ago. So was a big part of Alabama's. Recruiting Staff for the longest period of time especially pulling in these west coast kids. But as of right now, I mean they have a young staff but you look at a guy like south and series who's outside linebackers coach who's been Alabama for the last couple years he had left Alabama a few years ago with Florida's spent some time at Tennessee but now he's back in Tuscaloosa veteran recruiter has done a great job so far and that's recruiting class, but probably the the guy. Who has done the great the best job so far in this recruiting class is a guy named. Charles US new running backs coach. Then the running back coach at Alabama for the last two seasons and they had a great running backs coach for several years Burton Burns has developed so many great running backs, two heisman trophy winners and Mark Ingram and and trip Richardson. And now he's running backs coach of the New York giants but Alabama brought in Charles tough who had been the running backs coach at Penn State Developed Saquon Barkley, and now in Tuscaloosa and after two years of being there has really become kind of the ace recruiter on Alabama staff so far in this in this cycle and did really well last cycle but now. Has. Really put his foot print in on this recruiting class. This recruiting class is going to be one of the toughest ever with a lot of. Seniors not being able to play. We're speaking with Andrew Bone the new book the road to Obama I. Remember the story I read in they call me assassin Jack Tatum's autobiography, and he said he was in Passaic New Jersey Plan. Asking, ball on a park and someone said Jack. Your mom just let a white salesman into your house and he's like, oh? No. She can't let him in she's going to buy some. Ran Home and right. When he got there, Woody Hayes was walking out didn't even acknowledge Jack just walked right by him. and his mother said, that's coach Hayes you're going to Ohio. State? How much of it is recruiting the parents? But I think it's it the biggest keep part of the whole. You know a recruiting landscape I mean you've got to win over the parents and most of the time the mom you really have to win over the mom I think with with Nick Save and he's such a personal God once you get to know me spending time with them family's really love them and it's hard to say no because saving he really loves going at home and he's all he's been known. For several years. It's kind of ultimate closer and that's when you know after the season's over he's able to go visit high school players targets in their respective homes, their high schools, and when he's sitting down with parents, I think they feel very comfortable very confident of this is a guy that that I can leave my kid with our I consider my kid off to college for the next three to four years and You know be very competent and he's GonNa you know. Instill discipline and he's GonNa make a man by the time they leave college. What about the stories of going into those houses because Bill Walsh when he was at Stanford said, you know I if I have to sit on another couch and have A. Dog. Jump. In my lap and I gotta eat the Ice Cream I gotta be nice. You know it's just the way it is just a long road and remember keep Jackson. The tight end saying that Berry Switzer came to his house and he said he took off his shoes and socks and laid down on the couch. Mother said. Said I've never had a white guy take off his shoes and socks guy you gotta go play at Oklahoma. Does Nick have any weird stories about going into all these different households. Not. Not Too many I don't think he's ever had any slumber parties at any of these recruits homes. I mean he certainly Has had many meals at many different. He he'll stay for a little while, but you know I think at the same time he's not gonNa try to get it any recruits to to come to Alabama. He's GonNa. Go tell them exactly. What Alabama can do for them what they, what what they can do for Alabama they wanna go to Tuscaloosa or if they want to go somewhere else I mean that's finally saving as soon as they get their you know he's GonNa try to develop them. into an elite football player and that's what he's been able to do with most of these top kids you know I a lot of the guys that I spoke with for my book Yeah. A lot of these relationships are really built with the assistant coaches. You know these are the guys who you know sweat and bleed every single day to try to get these guys. As part of their you know as as part of their recruiting class and you know it's GonNa make her probably break break some of these guys. If they miss on key targets especially their in state you know you miss on, let's say the number one player in the state of Alabama who decided to go to Auburn or if he decides to go to you know Georgia or Florida or somewhere else outside of Alabama you know it's GonNa make that recruiting coasts look bad and make when he walks into the office and then. The next day so These these coaches are certainly trying develop these relationships. They're talking to him every single day through through twitter through text message zoom calls. Now Especially have become a very big thing since covid nineteen started back in the early part of the spring. So I think a lot of facetime calls in. Just talking to kids every single day from a from an assistant coach standpoint has been very beneficial and you know next saving you know what? He's done without being able to have recruits on campus the NC double a. just recently extended the recruiting dead period until January the first and in recruits haven't been able to visit college campuses since late March and that's been very difficult especially with you know reclusive WanNa try to see top programs before they make decisions. We're seeing a lot more facetime. Call stuff like that. You know throughout last six months or so. No doubt one more question for you. What about the unwritten rules 'cause you know Har- by had his recruiting camp down in Florida or you get a guy like lane kiffin he'll say come to Knoxville and then he bolts to you and here's some kid that committed to him, and now the new coach doesn't want him what about all that you know skulduggery that goes on. Well it's A certainly is especially with recruit said, you know they get offered early audit in May? Not really be a top priority any longer or they're definitely some kids that make decisions and commit and you know coaches. Sometimes you got those decisions because you know maybe you know the kid committed early on his high school career and you know hasn't really developed over the course of the last couple of years. I mean, there's just so much. You know kind of bickering back and forth on social media social media has become. So big obviously over the last ten years, and in every recruit has a twitter account. Every coach has its workout in every fan has a twitter account. You you really see all these fans really shot a even though they're really not supposed to. They're really try to recruit trying to do whatever they can on social media. Try to get these different kids to to join their favorite schools. I wonder if m NCAA COMPLIANCE OFFICERS WILL START COUNTING I don't think got some quite. That to be. Honest. The book is called the Road Obama incredible twists and probable terms along the Alabama. Crimson tad recruiting trail from someone who knows Alabama inside and out Andrew j bone and it is available tomorrow a congratulations on the book Andrew Thanks for stopping by and let's talk football again sometime.

You must be crazy use a do G., and if you was my man, I would have been kicked you out of my house by now this is what had happened in this crisis that is grandiose art. A couple of minutes left in the show we have a big football game tonight. It's the defending Super Bowl champions against a team that's won fourteen straight regular season games. Maybe, it's a preview of the AFC title game. It's a re-. It's a game between the last two NFL MVP's. And Pattern mahomes and Lauren. Jackson two overseas to anno-. And Ravens Corner? Marlon. Humphrey. Out of Alabama. Said when these two quarterbacks are on the field, it's magic on both sides and I see every week what Lamarcus do and I always see some highlight or something of what Mahomes can do when you have to superstar quarterbacks like that. Going to be fun game about that. That's a good commercial or Monday night football we have seen so many lousy Monday night games this one on paper it looks tremendous. And we know that the Ravens went fourteen in two we know that mahomes. Got Their First Super Bowl victory fifty years in Kansas City Jackson by the way twenty one in three is a starter during the regular season. Two of. Those losses. Against Kansas City. I guess Mahomes two years ago by three and over overtime, and then last year he lost and that thirty, three, twenty, eight game. Even though this is the first game in NFL history. Trying to NFL MVP's under twenty six years old. Accidents said it's not me versus him. He said quote I don't have to focus on Mahomes I've got to focus on their defense I've got to focus on scoring. I've got to focus on my job. My defense has to worry about him. And it's true. The thing about this, maybe the two best kickers de care about that. Arison bucker bank home to fifty eight yards overtime. Win Against. The chargers and then Justin Tucker is the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Ninety point nine percent and he has never missed inside twenty nine yards. About that and from inside fifty, he's two, hundred, twenty, six, two, hundred, and thirty seven. He's only missed eleven. At a two, hundred and thirty. Obviously. No home crowd for the Ravens. That's goes for pretty much everything nowadays. But anyway, on paper looks like a tremendous game and see if it actually goes down that way. Thanks to tune in and we'll be back on Yana on the show nine am time I'm rick.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez, and Mike Zimmer Vivey on the sports byline broadcasting network. The show Brian Alvarez here wrestling observer live makes him proverbial, wrestling observer DOT COM. So, yes. Going through the rest of that show last night drew McIntyre ran yard in the ambulance match. We can talk about this in depth later just know that drew one and Roman reigns destroyed Jaso Win Jim use Oh came down and threw in the towel. After completely one-sided twenty, two minute and twenty five second beating by Roman reigns designed to get heat on him and it sure did. and. A close the show with it. So they were not putting smiles on faces last night everybody. So the drew McIntyre rain your match I guess we'll find out tonight because you know trying to try to predict anything based on with a book is a waste of time because. I mean. oftentimes, we think is going to happen because it would make sense they don't do because. The guy in charge can't make sense of anything. But it seemed like it was a build towards a Helena sell match because it was drew Tirade Yordan Randy, was I attacked by the big show? He was attacked by Christian. Then, he was attacked by Shawn Michaels. And finally after drew McIntyre, beat him Rick flair drove the ambulance away. So the story obviously is that. You know rain your God his for all of the people that he laid out. They got their revenge. And probably, this leads to reindeer and complaining and getting a hell in a cell match book for. Well the Helena sell pay per view what a coincidence that's the papers coming up in October. Obviously if you. I mean if if you told somebody what happened. I mean, it's preposterous like radio in his fighting against four different guys. He overcomes the odds three times any finely is felled and basically he got screwed. Okay. It's ridiculous. I mean there's there's fifty ways to tell the story without making radio and come off as a baby face. But that's the way that they chose to do it. So I'm sure that's leading Shit Sam. Sure in any other promotion on the planet this would be leading to ellen sell match. We'll see what Devin BUEA ends up doing as noted that were highs, lows I didn't think it was a bad pay per view. I. Thought it was fine. Any thoughts Mike? We'll let me. Put this theory on you about rand or do you believe that theory? Theory yes. Not In Austin theory thankfully, but they a theory as to why maybe they decided to do this because I think I'm in your camp in that knowing wwe this is all set up randy complaining you gave them a Lotta outs, but it also gave the people at home a lot of fulfillment if they like seeing the bad guy come up from all these good people that. He is screwed over in the in the last couple of months early, solve the people that he's kicked in the head over the last couple of months. But he think this could be because they just WANNA go ahead and put a bow on Orton for he andrew McIntyre. Now because he is going to be getting traded or drew may be getting traded, come the ninth and the twelfth. They do the draft considering that Helen, the cell is November I. He's still got a pretty long way to get to it So do you think that's possible? Anything's possible. So I think that they have any plans for the draft right now. No. Do I think that if they have any plans for the draft, they're actually gonNA stick to those plans until they do the draft. No. So I think that this was just something they did to set up another match. I guess we shall see. Yes there is a draft. It is officials completely insane just because of anybody out there that didn't see the match that was a if there was a blow off that was it but it wasn't a blow off because radio was screwed by three different guys. But Brian in a different held in a cell pay in a realm that actually makes sense the bad. Guy Getting it from all angles of everybody he screwed and then gets you know sent off to me. That was a blow off I understand in the world of WWe that it's not an why somebody would say that no, they're doing this to set up this but it's like that was the period at the end of the sentence as far as I can't believe I'd be the only one. That didn't look that and go. You know that feels like that should be the end of this story even though it probably won't be well the problem with you trying to think about this in a logical way Mike is the entire pay per view was one match after another that took place after the feud had been blown off you tell me that Bobby Lashley and Apollo crews hasn't been. Blown off Pola cruise been meeting five thousand times by these guys. They didn't ask Selena Vega Match Oscar when clean and seven minutes that are building to another match I mean is there more of a blow off and beating someone clean via submission in seven minutes and they're doing another pay per view off that one I mean the street prophets they beat Angel and Andrade and they broke up. Much more to blow off that, and they had another match here on the pay per view which by the way they were scheduled to win. So the storyline was the street prophets beat Angel. Andrei. Fifty Times Angel on broke up. Then Age Linda got back together became number one contenders also, they could lose again. And of course, we add the. the Oscar Bailey match but that was that was beyond their. and. That's another one. It's like okay. So. Nicky Cross, was removed from the Shell. Maybe. She has Kovic maybe she doesn't you are removed from the show whether you have it or whether you in contact with somebody who had and by the way. If if Mike. Comes in contact with somebody that has covid, but he doesn't have it. Okay He tests negative. If this were me Mike still be off this program for two weeks. Even. Though he had clean test, it's a it's two weeks off if you come in contact with somebody that has covert in wwe so whether she has it or not she was off the show and so they had and we and they knew this on Friday Friday Saturday Sunday, they had three days to come up with a plan. With Nicky Cross off the show. While the plan they came up with was they add Oscar wrestle twice. They wrestled for three minutes and Bailey hitter with a chair for the disqualification. That's what they came up with I. Don't think they were trying. I think they were that was the best could come up with You want to Texas here did everybody really text messages for now and we will do the phone calls in the final segment text message forty, five, seven, eight, zero, seven, five, six, I would like to announce here today we have a new member of the prestigious. Effort W Empire the Salcedo is coming aboard who is Denise Sell Saito what is she going to be doing? Well, YOU'RE GONNA find out all of the details on this program tomorrow when she is here live and in beautiful hd here on wrestling observer life Mike didn't even know that but you know now Mike so you better be on your game tomorrow her nose she may replace you. I wouldn't be surprised by that. Probably be a big upgrade actually. No comment? Now. As noted the draft. We've got Friday October ninth will be the draft kickoff. So smackdown gets the kickoff this year. And the draft will be followed up on October twelfth. On Raw. Why you may ask are they doing draft the first week or two of October but they randomly drafted Mandy rose like a week ago well. I. Don't know but that's what they did. So everything will be shoveled up again coming up in early. October. Who knows maybe Mike's right maybe drew's going the other show or randy I doubt it but I, guess we're GONNA find out on October ninth and October twelfth. You say they can't figure out things and stick to them in a week which they can't, and so you know who knows what could happen by the time maybe they'll draft t bar and mace. What what what happens if revision gets broken up they asserted ended up on different brands when these that part of their contract is that written into the the small wording that they have air there's A. subsection that says that is part of their new contract. There's a draft they can't be drafted listen. All I know is if they do a draft and in storyline smackdown drafts, the group that is determined to destroy world wrestling entertainment I mean I don't put anything past anybody because I mean in storyline they sign them to contracts in the first place but that would be very very, very stupid move in storyline. To by the way, Rob Van dam and Katie Forbes confirmed no longer with impact wrestling. Their latest agreement had run out. and. It's IT looks like they're gone so. We'll see where the forty nine year old Rob Van dam ends up, but he's no longer at this point with impact wrestling. r.i.p ring entrances.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Semper v on the sports. byline broadcasting network. Louis Bro. Mandy rose was traded deal even listen. Exactly, the story me, rose. And, no, she was not traded you Dork. Because no one came to smackdown in her place. That's a trade. The story is that Ms. Went to the heads of USA on Fox. And because he's a big star, he convinced them to move her over to raw. By the way she hasn't even debuted yet. So my point is. They're gonNA move Mandy rose to raw. Line just wait for the draft of it's coming in early October by do some wacky storyline, which by the way makes no sense. This is a story they made up at a rule they made up out of nowhere MS has the power to randomly send people to the other show. He shouldn't be sending fifty everyone who beats them up you should be sending to the other show. My though it's only man rose and no, she's not even debut in. Yet. So my point is why bother wenches wait until the draft? Oh, probably you don't think that far ahead. Who Do you? Think's got more power is Roman reigns is talking about his power. He tried to flex it on or he did flex it on Charles Robinson last night who's got more power on smackdown the tribal chief or the USA ratings were well dude appears ms based on the storyline they've made up for the first time ever. Does he have the power or did he have a favor? He could call in? Big Difference there you know use that one to get Mandy out of there on notice not a good decision right there. If that was the the one thing that he had that he could lean on the USA executives for now he's got nothing in Romans tribal chiefs ending their with Paul Heyman and away. I thought the end of the ladder match was unique and interesting made sense and was the best ending to a ladder match modern W. E. history the rest of the pay per view. Was Okay. Right the ladder match was by far the highlight I mentioned that lesson on the Brandon show someone got mad what goes downhill from the ladder match. Well. It was in fact downhill from. Maybe the best wwe match of the pandemic era your opinion you're entitled to that this one's not an opinion this is a fact afraid. I am afraid. I am afraid. God bless Lena, Vegan Aska. We did not go uphill from the ladder match to that match. Well, we did not know we did not. We did not thank you. For since with the Rosser so thin that we're seeing the same matches every week on raw why is wbz continuing with the brand split? Well, they're doing a draft, my friend. We're seeing the same matches so we'll do draft and half the people go the other show and vice versa, and now we can have new matches the we can do fifty times over the course of the next eight months. The roster is not then. It's it's not then it's it's not they have too much roster. They have more roster than anybody at any point in the history of professional wrestling. That's a lot of roster. They have the roster creativeness then. Spurs says you think retribution will get themselves over on twitter and if they do have facile vince put them away. Well, this we gotta realize everybody. Do not call me a boomer just spouting facts right here. Those of you that live and die on social media are over estimating the value of social media to those people that are watching these shows on television. Okay. As a big to do a couple of weeks ago because there was a match with evil lease and thunder. Rosa and it got blown up way out of proportion. And I had people that were so angry that was not addressed because it was quote all over social media. And? Seven days later, they had a tag match. On. A W. and. You would think you would think. That if the story was all over social media that they were shooting or whatever the term was. They when they got put together in another match seven days later. There would be a great deal of interest in the match but in fact, if you watched the match, it was crickets. Be Live crowd there was not interested one bit. In Evil Lease and and. Thunder Rosa being in the ring together after their alleged to do in the ring the week prior because the fact of the matter is it was a big deal on social media but in the real world of the one point, four, five viewers per home for eight w and the people that are watching on national television absolutely nobody cared. Okay. So the point of this is What retribution is doing on? Twitter is a lot of fun. And they're certainly way moreover on twitter this past week than they were before they started doing this is going to make absolutely zero Zilch not a difference to this act on television. The one point four, five people who watch. What does that point for vibe person look like they're sitting there in the House Average one point four five human beings watch a W.. Okay. This is the highest of any professional wrestling show more people watch a together apparently is a family than any other wrestling promotion and that point four five or whatever is probably not sitting there living and dying by what's going on on social media they're watching it with their their husband or wife brother sister. Whatever? They don't know what the Hell's going on with under Rosen Eva lease. Tim, many people get angry about that but pride social media. There's four million people watching that that segment on raw last week yet they're all in India. We've talked about this a million times. It has zero to do with viewers on the USA network in America. Social Media Farm in China things playing over and over again. Person says I absolutely hated the ambulance match putting sight. It was overbooked mess. How does W E justify randy getting a third title shot because he got screwed he faced four men. Every time he was winning a man came out and put him through a table or throw them across the catering table backstage or super kicked him off the top of am violence, and he's still fought back valiantly every time this man was screwed come up and spell with that is, did he get really get screwed or is it come up? If you do this type of treachery on People Mike Sooner or later it's GonNa come back to might ruin. By being screwed that's what happened. In a match with no roles, he should have been better prepared for this. He is the he is the viper he should have known something could be around the corner like Christian in catering. The big show with a Agadir on with no facial hair he really needs to grow the goatee back I never really like a clean shaven big show's very scary to. Person says it seems based on your review that you missed Roman stopping Robinson from calling the match bullying him to the Corner Dude. Bro. It's not Romans called whether the mansions. It's the referees call room and bullied him. What we do is your ring, the bell and you run. That's that is a preposterous. Storyline Hook right there that the referee was gonNA call the match but the guy was killing the other guy wouldn't allow it bro, come on. That's ridiculous. I didn't Miss It. It was ridiculous. Says, Brian Observer radio from the past few years you're never as down on me as you've been in these past three few months actually that's not true. It's in the past year and a half. I understand maybe that's your gimmick trashed. It's not a gimmick it's. This is objectively the worst it's ever been. Ever was wrong with the pay per view last night that did you listen to my review? Well, in my review I said that the pay per view was fine. There were ups and downs and it involved probably the best match of the pandemic era. So I to presume that you just don't actually listen and you just send me these text messages to complain. But Bro W. E. has been the worst it has ever been since the fall of twenty eighteen the story lines are nonsensical. They don't make any sense. This is the worst I've been watching this since nineteen eighty-eight. Ivory watched much of it. By the way I've watched Saturday nights events watched the attitude era I'm rewatching the invasion. This is the worst has ever been from two thousand eighteen till today if you just started watching or if you don't watch all the shows, you probably think it's fine. Okay. But if you've actually been watching this promotion, this is the worst it's has ever been and in the middle of being the worst it's ever been. We are doing record low numbers and the decline of me is greater than the decline of television. General. Any more questions. Okay boomer. boomer. Actually. I'm not a boomer I'm barely an extra. Like, right on the line to being a millennial it what are we? With. Your ex okay. I mean extra by five years but S in. My parents are barely boomers. But what really Kind of funny how the invading force who have contracts allowing that to do anything they want any? Just opted to chill out the all important clash of champions. Well, it's a dual brandon, show their rocks collusive 's. So, That's nice. Commentary kept getting Jay and Jimmy confused during the match even with it being only Jay out there with that was hilarious. Yes. Of was although as Corey noted when he screwed up at least he saved by saying you know that is Jesus was problem nobody can tell you apart and he wants to change that. So Lisa Safety Dan I'm gonNA open up the phone I. Want that guy that called who thinks I'm doing a gimmick I wanted to call. Okay back in a moment observer rely. Come.

I buried TNA. From whatever? Well, actually I started burying when they were doing weekly pay per views. You know what happened nobody was buying the weekly pay per views and they were like weeks away from going out of business or never would have been eighteen a and Dixie Carter family jumped in and he bought the promotion and they paid for it for years but I wasn't wrong about that. then. You know around two thousand whatever when they were absolutely beyond atrocious I buried them. Then you know what?

So I honestly thought the match order was perfect the family feud between Roman reigns and juice. So was the most captivating story going into the view of course, it was going to be last and you know after fantastically told story in a match I thought it was the most captivating story after the paper to you. So it doesn't make any sense to go before drew McIntyre and Rome and Randy Orton in the ambulance match it makes sense go on last well this. Is. An intelligent fellow he's an intelligent fellow, but I will say Carlos that that. Yes I, understand what you're saying and if somebody believes that and that's totally fine but my my point in that text was. If you only had one world championship. And it was held by Roman reigns then win lose happy. Sad it goes on last. But in fact, we have two world championships. And in one of those matches, it was an ambulance match. which is a hardcore match anything goes. And it's going to end with the. He'll as Mike. Not. Getting his comeuppance also I might add getting screwed. And it's going to end with Rick Flair the legend who was put out of action by the dastardly. He'll driving the ambulance and zooming off into the night. Okay. Now for a promotion that advertises we like to put smiles on people's faces. That's a great ending to the pay per view. That's my whole point I was fine with the Roman reigns thing ending the show I don't care. I. Merely point out that they like to talk about how they put smiles on people's faces and often often not every time but most of the time. If they have two title matches. Then unless it's like one guy is way bigger like if it's Roman reigns as champion Ginger, the other champion than Roman reigns going unless you've got drew McIntyre and and Roman reigns and the majority of the time if one of the world championship matches is going to have a sad ending and one's going to have a happy ending they put the happy ending on last. That's all I was saying, I, don't care. I was fine with what went on last I was merely pointing out it's not what they usually do. It's not wrestlemainia. You know it's just again. It's that actually lends a little bit more to your theory that they're going to go ahead and do this again at helping the Salvi because it was not the main event and there is going to be more to go with this although. I agree with Carlos who unfortunately is an astros fan but I agree with Carlos. To me, Roman. Reigns is the biggest star in you're telling his story and sometimes movies and sometimes. You know sporting events don't end with the fan favourite getting their hand raise you know ends with the other guy doing it and I think. Roman. Reigns I is such a again. I can't see him leaving smackdown I. I don't know we'll have this shuffle is gonNa work how they're going to appease the networks right now with star power but you Roman reigns to me is just it's the biggest act in the company. It's the most important act and it's solidifying that this man would kill his family to stand at the end of the shows as the champion known as the ruler of not only smackdown but the entire thing. So we'll see what the reaction of Roman and Paul Heyman is on. Friday to and where they decide to go with them because what do you do with Roman reigns? Now, what's his next opponent? Who was he? You know what's his next best piece of competition? They already played the family angle here with with Jay and they did a good job with it did better I think than what anybody could have thought they did when Jay ended up winning that scramble match or whatever it was. So that's out of the way. Now, what cool thing do you have Roman reigns and you know continues to solidify this guy is the. Biggest best thing that he got on TV Honolulu you're on the air what is going on? I hello everybody else which home I got two questions if you don't mind that Number one do you think it's a day for a suit Zarro to feud with Roman reigns? and. The number two. Oh. y'All WHOA buddy hold on a second hold on buddy hold on cicero Roman reigns. Yeah. In a different world yes. If explain wise royal being. Roman reigns right now. Too much. TURN GIST SINCE GAY Nakimora ditch. Aren't you the guy? Didn't you text me yesterday about how society was under you lights went on for like ten minutes about how he's utilize better than like three quarters of the roster. Possibly yeah okay. What's your other question? Honolulu where Otis and money in the bank contract wasted we? We don't have him. Where's he at? Well, I WANNA. Thank you very much for the call Honolulu that was not your finest work my friend. Otis has the briefcase. We we see every single week on smackdown. But as I've said, countless times he wanted in July. It's as I, look at my watch right here September. October November December January February March April may June. He's ten months. What's, the hurry. You'll all be vaccinated by the time. This guy has to cash this thing in. Biting their time. You think these I mean this the nice way possible. You think seventy four year old guy actually might be seventy five now, I think he has any idea when Otis's cashing in this briefcase or if he is of course not and He has no clue. And if the day comes realizes live. Then someone will beat him for the briefcase or something wacky or he'll cashing in. Fail me no. Hurry Dude. allowed. We're couple of years ago when the story came out about like I, forget who was must have been an ex writers on. It was very they put the thing on sand with no plans to ever make him the champion. It was just they needed a body to win. There is no long-term planning. Everybody was the story about they was on him when they forgot about it and he forgot who had it? where it's far as plays into the story and they're running out of time I care about, but it's you know completely. Ridiculous. Maria. Cody was sandown cody we're fighting over a worth the can't remember this come on I've been I've been conditioned to remember nothing because it's it's painful to do so plus nothing matters anyway you're not rewarded for remembering anything you're not. You know there's no you know get anything for that Egypt, which is amazing. When they bitch about people the long-term term storytelling, the fans the fans can't handle long-term storytelling that would be all your hand and the fact that you're not even doing it. Massachusetts, you're on the air what's up? Bro Now you're on the air it's going on. Hey what's up Brian? What's up? Mike South the twitch chat I just had a question.

Buddy wait a second. Go, online. There's like five teams across to brands. So how in the world is draft could save the TAG team division. We're going to go from two teams on one show and three teams on the other show to two teams on one show and three teams on the other show. How in the world? How will the save the? I agree with you I agree. We'll save the tag division, my friend, Laura tag teams that don't break up. Any. That's how they can draft him like to the two people like shortage in somebody randomly drafted. Now you're drafted to another show is the team.
