"brian floors" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"Right. This game was just kind of law game. I don't think the bills look particularly good. Although they did pull away in the second half. I mean it's tied three three at halftime bills still having beaten a team with a winning record. Which i think is an interesting stats. So you know should make for some good patriots. Bills matchups down the line. Connor as for the dolphins here to me is the most stunning stat. They are one and seven right now. Which is the same record. They had at this point of the twenty one thousand nine hundred tanking season. Oh my goodness. Wow yeah that's a. It's a tough one. I mean in. It's so weird. Because i've never been well i've been more convinced. That other coaches were going to be great coaches. I think you and i are still. Are we still in lockstep. Brian floors is a good coach. I think brian floor is a very good coach. I felt a lot of respect for brian floors as a coach connor but i think the way he handled the situation to go below basically making him constantly look over her shoulder answer questions week to week about a potential replacement of the team may be trading for. They didn't put him in a situation to succeed this season. And you know maybe you're looking for other options at the position. Okay but there just seemed like a lot. More of the organization could be doing to support tackle by lowest development. And i feel like a lot of the public. Comments have only hurt that yeah in. It's been strange right. I mean. I think that each version each generation of the offensive coordinator changed. You've changed offense coordinator now three times Under tunga vilo but a lot of the offensive coordinators have had the same sort of central theory. Like right in. Even if it's what you have now which is sort of version of the patriots offense or what you had before with chan gailey. It's i get the point right. You're trying to capitalize on to as short-to-medium range accuracy. And so you're going to do a lot of stuff like that. But i think you know with two at the nfl level. I think that you have to have a little bit more imagination. I think that you have to allow him to. Maybe do some more stuff off schedule because right now. It looks like when plays breakdown. He's just not comfortable. Which is odd for player with that much arm. Talent and that much mobility and it just looks like when things aren't going the way that he designed to go with designed to go that's when he makes kind of boneheaded interception that's when he throws the ball and does something. He's not supposed to do so. I don't know. I don't know I've said and i got in trouble for this I get yelled at for this on twitter. But i think that bryan floors is greatest. Feeling is just an inability to find creative partner for two. I think that's as much your job as anything and your defensive head coach so your job is to scan your rolodex right and find somebody. I don't care where he's from. You know or you know what would play. What level of football coaches at your job is to find his his. I has his schematics sort of muse and they..

"And we were wrong there. I mean they completely changed their game. Plan and threw a curveball buffalo. That brian day did not adjust and it basically involves the area of buffalo's team that we were concerned about that wasn't improved this off season. Which is the line. But pittsburgh only sent blitz twelve percent of dropbox last week. Last season the week fourteen matchup pittsburgh sent blitz fifty seven percent of dropbox so pittsburgh basically only rushed with their front and job guys into coverage. And that's how they they elected defend buffalo's passing of that you know you can play that style when cameron heyward goes out and gets twelve pressures in. Tj watt gets another seven and both those guys you look at the end of the week finished top nine in pass rusher in weight. You add five. More pressures for melvin gordon. Those three guys basically had their buffalo's front all day long and that's why they want but it's important to kind of mention that because miami does not really shown ability to get natural pressure with with their front for you. You just look at what. Brian floors is done through his entire tenure in miami. It's been all manufactured pressure and one of their best defensive. Lineman ray davis is out for a couple of weeks. So flora's can't actually mimic what pittsburgh pulled off last week if they tried the other thing that we've seen from miami because they manufacture pressure. And because they spend gobs of money at corner they live in cover one. They live in cover to man. It makes sense right. It's the highest paid secondary in the nfl by fifteen percent. The problem is buffalo has shredded flora's as cover one and cover two men four straight games. You mentioned some of those numbers right. Buffalo's one and i want to kind of put this in context of just flora's buffalo's one four meetings by an average of fifteen with flora's going against buffalo. The total has gone over in those four games by average of twenty point. one points. Because that's not how you defend buffalo in the receivers so that's going to be interesting and last week new england. I thought made a real crucial mistake. They should have beat the dolphins. Not just because of the fumble late but josh mcdaniels didn't really adapt in game. Patriots went out. Spent a ton on john. Smith hunter henry so they used a bunch of twelve formation fifty percent of snaps last week from twelve but when new england actually spread things out and went with three wide receiver sets mack. Jones lit up the dolphins eighteen for twenty one nine point three attempt sixty seven percent passing success rate. Buffalo's not gonna make that mistake. They live and eleven personnel with three whites and that is the reason they have been able to shred the dolphins. And i'm not quite sure. The dolphins have the personnel to mimic a style that pittsburgh implemented last week. You know it's interesting when you talk about josh allen and some of those numbers and obviously it's more important to put in context with those four meetings against floors. I found it fascinating from an individual accolades standpoint. Josh allen is one. Afc player of the week six times in his career pain. Three of those times have come when he's facing the dolphins defense. So this is a quarterback who's going to be brimming with confidence and has every reason to believe so you would expect buffalo like you said given the scheme at dell encounter to be a little bit more dynamic. I mean stefan digs and cool beasley. Were able to eat. Catching seventeen passes on twenty-six targets. But they never had the explosive big play. Potential there with those near misses. That josh allen had to deal with on the other side of the ball. You've talked a little bit about the dolphins game against the patriots. Miami essentially in my opinion put together two drives one the first drive of the game and then one coming out of half other than that. They were pretty average at best. You look at two. Nothing's going to blow you away from a statistical profile that he put forth. I what. I found fascinating were brian. Floors is comments about the offensive line. Configuration we talked about austin jackson being upgraded thinking that he was gonna play a role then flora's starts liam aiken berg and pretty much says. Hey look we're gonna play the best five guys whether it's a shot fired off the bauer an inspirational tactic. Let's see how miami figures that o. Line this week against the buffalo defense. That's gonna get pressure onto it so it was a really tough game to gauge. I went back watched. It saw some of it live. I thought all things considered miami's offense did okay. It's it's to his first road star with fans in the stands. Austin jackson who you mentioned at left tackle did not play an offensive snap. My understanding is and we all thought right. We did shows last week. Saying austin jackson's out with the big c adam. Schefter reported it. And then all of a sudden saturday he gets upgraded but because he missed the entire week of practice floors is game. Plan didn't really include him at that point and so he played three special team snaps and he came out this week and was adamant that austin jackson is the left tackle liam eichenberger shifted from right tackle to left. Tackle effectively downgrading to positions will fuller did not play with his one game suspension. We've seen the impact. That will fuller. Had on quarterbacks better quarterbacks than to i mean deshaun watson splits with willfuller versus without our staggering. You say all those things and you're facing a new england patriots defense that we think is going to go back to being one of the top ten in the nfl. Miami's fourteenth most efficient offense in week. One not terrible. I think there's some meat left on the bone. Obviously to miss amisi throws completion percentage was three and a half percent below expectation through terrible pack and a crucial stage of the game. When the pressure was on. I thought he handled pressure terribly. Twelve and a half passer rating on his seven pressure drawbacks. When to was throwing with play action he struggled his intermediate passing left a lot to be desired on throws in the ten to nineteen yard window. One for nine with a pick and zero passer rating. Now waddell and parker did drop to balls in that window. So factor that in a little bit there was also a level of predictability with miami's offense and that's one thing that does make me a little concerned is great as brian floors as ben changing the culture and bringing new guys in it's been a revolving door at o. c. You know first comes in. He brings over new england wide receiver coach and the scheme is too complex for the young guys. Then he goes to ninety eight year. Old chan gailey who devised this system for ryan fitzpatrick and not to a and just terrible and now you have a dual coordinator situation in. No one knows where they stand..

"Brian floors is going to have them ready to go for week. For this matchup against the buffalo bills by solar the bills to win this game the patriots take on the jets. Giving the pages of this one match jones looked really good in week. One against the dolphins. Yeah besides that one backward past thing like whatever other than that he looked very good very comfortable. I like mack jones in the patriots to bounce back takedown. Zach wilson the jets in week. Two bengals take on the bears at chicago Gimme the bengals and this one. I do think that with the bengals. They are going to feel confident after their week. One against minnesota. Chicago has a andy dalton thing and i guess he's still gonna be the starting quarterback you don't think you looked at good plus coming off a very physical against the rams so give me the cincinnati bengals to take week to start the season to a falcons against the buccaneers giving. The buccaneers falcons. Look bad against the eagles in week one. Now they're going on the road to tampa bay. I let tim bay to handle this one. no problem. minnesota tastes and the cardinals. Give me the cardinals. This one a hot start and for week one against tennessee. Now they're going back home feeling good they start off good last especially kyla murray and i think the kind of fizzled out again towards the season end so i liked the cardinals to at least start off hot again and take game two against minnesota tennessee versus the seahawks game the seattle seahawks. I think the crm win this game easily. I think that they have a great. They're great game. Plan to slow down derrick henry and the tendency almond so me the seahawks at home cowboys versus the chargers. This is a looks like a little bit. A coin flip. Give me the cowboys cowboys. Pretty good defensively against tampa. Bay buccaneers dak prescott. Very good as well. They had a more time to rest. Compare to the chargers so the cowboys to come off firing week to and get the win against. La chargers week and next the next match-up got the chiefs versus the ravens again. Give me the chiefs though. I think the chiefs are going to handle the ravens. Sometimes when you think like oh. Is this a chance to ravens. Are going to get to be the chiefs. It's not like it's it's the ravens raven sir go into. Nah i don't think they can keep up with the cancer. She's last year and this game happened. I thought that the ravens would start off hot. Like maybe it's a two touchdown lead and then hold off kansas city but us find out..

"That is not a hot take. The jags will finish with the worst record again. A let it bake. I gotta see more. They could honestly because they're so young. They may have major improvement. Remember that miami team. Brian floors got beat. Like my fifty by baltimore like they're not a good team and they allowed four hundred fifty yards of the texans. So it's i guess my point is it's not a hot. Take my guess is they'll be one of the two worst teams. Derek carr and the raiders will make the playoffs heartache. That is the best. I've ever seen their pass rush. That is not what their pass rush usually is the raiders. Also have the toughest. Nfl schedule they haven't made the playoffs. In five years. it is a great division. that is a hot take the. afc west is the best division. It's one of the top three. So let's let it bake. I will say. Afc west averaged four hundred forty yards the team's average. So what you have in that division. We know there's going to be three really good offenses and teddy bridgewater. Does it turn it over. So denver should have a good offense and we know. They fixed their. They fixed their corner. So i would say this is one of the three best divisions in the nfl. Let it bake when you get you know. Denver is going to be as good as healthy. Lost jerry judy. So they're not a team. Kansas city can win and would loss with with a with a physical loss or a player out in kansas city. Is that good offensively. Denver's got to stay healthy. They they've got some really high end players but last year that is injuries to wide receiver. They can't have a rash of those again. The texans will win the afc south that they had the easiest game week. One now i will say this for the texans. It's a veteran coaching staff. It's a veteran team. Soul facing a there'll be games where their maturity will be very very helpful like this week. They're not gonna win this week. But when you have a veteran quarterback you're not gonna look like jacksonville didn't week one which is our just not ready for the moment like we just we this. Game's going too fast so that that's a hot take. They're not gonna win the division. It should also be noted the titans have to coordinators. they'll get better and carson wentz didn't get a lot of snaps in preseason right so that situation with the colts will get better. I guess with texans as you saw about as much as they can give you. You got to the ceiling. Really quick with a texan's whereas i think tennessee not a great team will get better. The colts potentially a really good team had a bad match up there. You.

"Keep up so if they do take parker. I think that's where we see two of the car dealer right to of the blackjack dealer where he's going to find the worst cornerback over and over and over. I mean josh. We saw jimmy get towards fried. Wes welker how many years in a row just because the p the dolphins couldn't make adjustments. I think that's what this offense can do. Where they can look at wattle or wilson and say hey one of these guys is going to have a complete mismatch against the linebacker even against an ounce of linebacker four three four. They're not gonna be able to keep up with the likes of jalen. Waddell or wilson so. I think that is really where we're going to see to a freshman year to where he's concerned he sees things He's not used to and is uncomfortable. Compared to he knows the system that he's in and he knows that displayed book things looking a little weird. This guy is going to be open When he throws the ball. And maybe that's just testament this offense. No because we're sitting here we're talking about and it's all these mismatch all these pieces they brought in and we're not talking about the scheme in just a different positions. That godsey in god are going to put these players in. I don't know who's going to cover. Jalen while to be honest jake and sat your instead miami speedy wide receivers but we can take it one step further and talk about mike sick in here. I mean he's been a mismatch nightmare for the new england patriots over the last few years. So he's a guy who we see the confidence with to a ton a low we see the making place together so Throw him into the mix. How are the new england patriots. Going to be able to stop that and you know part of that. They're going to attack to a ton of a low. We're not gonna talk about them pressure to a time of love. Let's talk about one of the miami dolphins big big keys to this game and that getting pressure on the rookie quarterback mccorkell jones. Miami finished the two thousand twenty one season with forty one sack. That's the most since two thousand thirteen. I wanted to look up. Their blitz percentage did not look up. So we're just going to say sixty nine percent that'll be the default nights. They got the quarterback on sixty nine percent of their blitzes. That's not accurate all for me. I'm just. I go back to that charge game where justin herbert was coming into that game. You know mid season. That's what people continue to forget. He was coming amid season. And this guy looked confused and he just had the one of the best seasons by a rookie quarterback. I mean how's mccorkell. Jones gonna fair you know after what two three preseason games not even getting all the first team reps going out there with a new team seeing a brian floors defense. That's going to be the key to this game. And i think the dolphins gotta hit him hit him. Hit him her. They got to attack him early and force him to make mistakes. But you know s. Some people brought up on twitter. I think this game's going to go out to try to establish the running. They're going to do a lot of this underneath stuff that we've become accustomed to with new england because they got to get the ball out quick because brian floors is definitely smelling blood. Like a dog in the water jazz. It might just be. Because i'm too young. Can you explain to me. Your mac jones game a little bit. Oh the mac. That's actually god given name as mccorkell. Oh so it's not even a joke. And that's steve. Steve come and i made on the last one and that was the from failures. It was like denied. You might not stupid. come on okay. i'm sorry. I mccorkell is stooge real name. So i'm just calling mccorkell until you know i'm on until he's no longer new england patriots Yeah josh you bring up a great point. And i think the way they're gonna attack mcchord we'll start with the same. They did attack justin. Herbert i mean. What was it keelan allen who sang after that game that that justin herbert looked so scared playing so scared. That type of thing. I think that is really the the major part of the context. I think we're missing when we're looking at about the point spreads we're looking about the fact that miami's defense is cheaper than patriots. Indie f is the fact that i think brian floor is knows how to make these guys really confused really uncomfortable especially when you have guys like a male and jalen phillips who hopefully will be pushing along that edge. Josh does start. I think with the patriots and their offensive line. I think the dolphins are going to need to stop the run. And that's why you attack rate. The dolphins breaking news not the greatest team against the run. They weren't last year. I don't think they're going to be this year. But the more pressure you being the more people you keeping the box i mean. That's when you're forcing jones to really know air it out. If he's going short. I'm sure bryan floor is gonna be ready for that and that's where we might see. You know the giovane hollick six. The nick needham pick six where one it's one of those out routes and i mean if this replica book and maybe it's not fair to compare him to herbert because herbert honestly played a pretty good game in there. I think he still had two touchdowns yet. Interception was only sacked twice so maybe mccorkell welfare better than we think. But i made a joke. He's about mobile as drew bledsoe. And i don't know if you remember. Drew bledsoe jake but he was almost like a statue in pocket. So i listen to that of course okay. So that's the way. I see that and you brought up run and i think that's kind of the perfect segue into our next two keys. Because as we saw last season akita this rivalry so far has been time of possession and running the football. I know that's a big surprise right going back to the old school ways of football. When the dolphins lost a time of possession week one was thirty. Four minutes and forty nine seconds to twenty five minutes and eleven seconds so that is almost a ten minute difference when the dolphins won back in week fourteen. The dolphins almost had fifteen minutes more possession possessing the ball thirty seven minutes and twenty six seconds to their twenty two and thirty four so You know when you couple that possession with the dolphins success on the ground they rushed for two hundred and fifty yards on the ground in miami's twenty to twelve win back. In december miles gaskin did not play but salvin akhmed led the way with one hundred and twenty two yards on the ground. I mentioned that week. One loss to the new england patriots. And guess who led the team in rushing enac jake ryan fitzpatrick fig newton. It was fitting for the patriots cam. Newton cam newton led the way with one hundred seventeen yards on the ground. I think the next guy may have been sony. Michelle with three carry. So i mean if you're looking at why the new england patriots had such success against the miami dolphins last season. It was that run game and a lot of that stems from cam newton. Who's no longer there. So if they can go out there. And you know. Stop damian harris Stevenson to players..

"I mean. There's actually the question at least in the media. The i think the questions even go deeper than that because remember this is a guy was not practiced. At least you know not in the in the typical sense of how quarterback practices in the preseason. So it's not like he's been out there throwing balls. You played in preseason games in and taking part in joint practices. So there's the fitness level. Like is he ready would even be ready to step out and start throwing a ball immediately. If if he wasn't into still on your office that means who starts the season as a starter and then all the sudden you switch to shawn watson. When he's ready doesn't seem you know that that to me. Trust me the timing of this. Like i get it people. It's not like ignore the question. People have great question. I don't have those questions to run them. I know but i again. We don't know i don't know personally. What worked behind the scenes. The texans or excuse me the. The dolphins have done in terms of speaking to the league office. Speaking roger goodell doing their own work on what the allegations are how this could run its course criminally and then also the league investigation and you know every general manager i spoke to this has spoken to rusty harden and i can tell you this rusty hardin. That's shawn watson. attorney has maintained from day one with like unequivocally the guy is innocent. I'm gonna show us innocent. We're going to go to court and show he's innocent. They want to settle and we are demanding that if we do settle there's no end. Yeah so we could talk about how all this went. The money everything we want everything transparent and then you have to ask yourself okay. So if he's saying that and the dolphins are doing their own brand at work. How do we know what the dolphins found. I mean what. What if brian floors says i know the kid you know. I know a kid kids background. We've done work on 'em all these different things me. I believe that he hasn't had his day to to talk about what's happened to allegations and let this whole thing unfold. Maybe maybe you're feeling internally there that people could feel differently about this six months from now than they do today. You know once things start to sort of unfolds either in front of a grant here. This could change dramatically. People really need to understand this if this goes before a grand jury. Okay if a grand jury sits here and says we're not indicting you know we're going to do what's called the nobil. Which is there's no. There's he doesn't need. We don't have any charges for him to plead to To be indicted then he instantly would have to whatever charges the grand jury comes up with if the jury comes back and says we have a no bill determination. I mean we have nothing for you to to to plead to. There are no charges here that we were advancing you to plead to at that point that changes significantly. Because now you have a grand jury. That sat weighed. The evidence heard if they chose to her interviews from the alleged victims in this situation and said we got nothing for you. That's that is a significant titanic moment in in the legal process and i think it would very much change the narrative for nfl teams when it comes to the the reticence to take a look at him in terms of a trick. Charles thanks for the call. I gotta jet. I had too many questions probably more than than my radio. Clock would allow. Thanks for the call will chat soon. Absolutely.

"Just getting a chance to talk to him. When i first met him and then our relationship is gone from there but they saving definitely the whole time. And you're happy quarterback this year. I wanna hopefully bring back no national championship forum. That was mack jones. That was mack jones just before he was getting getting drafted by there now. He's doing the patriots. Starting quarterback starts for nick. Saban starts for bill belichick. Not many people can say they've done that. I will say rich. That was a good bit that that we did about asking guys the most upset they made. Sabin you don't use the past tense. There's still more to come now. I can't wait to get najji harrison on the show where she starts shining the steelers. Eight four four zero. Four rich is the number to dial here on the program so what a weekend it was not just in my household is my son was getting bar mitzvah but here about sure at some point i will tell you but You look down at your phone. You know wonder about a caterer this that the thing and then it's just like Okay charles robinson's reporting and shawn watson maybe a dolphin today i am a man could and so here we are on cut day and it looks like deshaun watson is going to be a texan and as all of those moving parts are moving around and everything going on in new england. It is now time the bring the man of the hour certainly from the weekend the senior. Nfl reporter of yahoo sports charles robinson year on the richeisenshow. How you doing charles doing well model. Thank you sir Thank you very popular in miami these days. Well so What's going on. Let's start with the present here and you. Can you know whatever you want to sprinkle in from what you heard over the weekend. And leading up to that into what is going on with shawn watson. The dolphins and texans were currently conversing on this tuesday. Yeah well i look. I can tell you right now. The the houston. Texans are going to have to relent on pick protections when it comes to the shawn watson and you know the i i understand. Dolphin fans Wanna look at the situation and say well you'll look we're going into the season with two which is significant and the houston. Texas are gonna go into the season you know at least at this point. This is the plan to go into the season with two shawn watson on the fifty three man roster but the reality is why. We're sitting here talking about that is simply because the houston. Texans are refusing to look at an exchange of of draft picks shawn watson and give protections away. And it's something that caused. I think the carolina panthers over a period of time to say there's there's too much risk there and if we cannot mitigate the risk we have to clap our hands and walk away from the table i think kept philadelphia eagles at an arm's length for a while and really kept them from engaging more deeply into deshaun watson pursuit than they ever did. And also for the denver broncos who i think genuinely were and you know would probably still be interested into shawn watson if the houston. Texans were willing to say look. We don't have to have everything we don't have to have our price and then on top of it also have picked protections as well. Now you know the dolphins. And i'm look. I'll just say. Brian floors bryant floors really respect the football talent. And i'm going to say again the football talent of deshaun watson. Okay we can. You have to separate For a moment. When you're talking about potential deal you have to separate how he's view pro-football perspective you know versus how he's viewed in terms of the civil litigation and the criminal investigation that are underway for football perspective. Brian floors looks at deshaun watson. As but the top five quarterback a A player who will push to be you know a a first or second team all pro player every single year at that position for the next ten years. Everything that he's cracked up to be that everyone celebrated prior to march prior to everything coming out from the civil and criminal end of you know his life right now But that said there is the other half of the equation and that is The reticence that teams experience even if they like them if they're still at the table willing to entertain trading for him It's being protected for what happens after that trade occurs. And if the texans are going to sit here which is what is occurring right now. They're going to sit here and continue to say we're not we're not giving up pick protections and we're gonna continue to push for this full price. Which once again. Three first round picks to second round picks. That is what they consider a full price offer. it's gonna be hard to consummate a deal but the idea that just because the season's starting at this wraps it's a wrap and miami's out for good again. Brian floors had the opportunity. I can't underscore this enough very smart guy. My report came out on friday. Hit a whole day to think about it. Knowing the questions were coming had the opportunity we have. Our starting quarterback got could take these questions anymore. We're done We're moving forward. We not trading starting quarterback. So let's just get off of this and and that's we're finished didn't happen and i know you know people are going to say that's not proof of anything but i've cover league twenty years ben around forever. I mean we've seen this happen before. And there is an economy of language that that matters and coaches and pours. The very bright guy could end this any moment. He wants to well. Let's that you just laid a lot out there charles limit. Let me just get right into it. Then totally make sense. Detections want watson gone totally. Make sense that. Watson still wants out totally make sense. That watson wants to control where he wants to go. Totally makes sense of the texans are like yeah. We're not going to give you any protection. This is shawn watson and totally makes sense that the dolphins would want protection because of what's going on and what they don't know and let's be honest. There's i'll say it a lot in south florida where individuals could be called massage therapists. I mean so. There's there's a lot of risk in moving parts and everything right here but on what planet does everybody think. This sort of thing is going to be pulled off where everybody gets what they want a. We can half before the season. Why even attempted. Why even attempt it from. Let's remove the texan side. Because they want him off the dolphins even attempt at why would they even attempted charles. I i'm i can't sit here and defend the thought process of Why look i. I've written in the past multiple times since march that essentially. We're in a radioactive situation with a player where from a risk standpoint from a public relations standpoint from if you even want to go there and do you know again. Innocent until proven proven guilty is being looked at by everyone right now. Okay so it's not like one body and you know This is a situation where someone to do. Sloppy investigation and and nothing happens This is that's the i. This is the harris county prosecutor's office houston police departments. The nfl which will eventually conclude their investigation after the criminal side. Wraps up You know it's there's a. There's a morality riskier too depending on how you feel about the allegations and you know what your level belief is and you know what bears out once. All these investigations are completed. I can't answer to why.
"brian floors" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"But it's not going to push them over the top like what is it really doing for kyle. Murray when you look at corey. Davis pair with zach wilson. You gotta young quarterback with a somewhat of a young why receiver that has played in his league. So you understand how to get open. He understands what the nfl is. all about. it will help zac. Wilson grow into something else mentioned emmanuel sanders. Now you got a little bit of attract me going on up in buffalo with their findings man saying kobe's me so you start to look at that a little bit different in the passing game so there's a few guys a south that it certainly can make an impact no question about it all right. Let's go to another one. Here will fuller in miami okay. We'll we'll for. Learn the andre hopkins. They get bigger out of houston right. And so now there with new teams but will fuller in miami like can have an impact with what is to. What are we going to see from two of this year. We hear brian floors flirting with the idea of bringing in a in a guy like shawn watson and not being it seems like all the way sure about their quarterback so is willfuller going to be a guy that has big implications with his new team in miami. Can he take them over the hump because they were right there in the thick of things to stay on the feet. That's washington here. I was gonna sit at to burn image my mind and we'll just him in texas uniform and i were talking about this just here to begin the season with the shawn watson them lose in hop hopping willfuller was supposed to be that guy that burning image will. I'm not saying that. He can't be revamped revamped but to a tunnel over is going to be heavy past system. I mean that's going to be something that can stay on the field. Can you stay healthy and durability is the big question for him key what we're gonna say. J. j. was saying do ability for will fuller. They've got a slew of wide receivers in miami right now in in so they've got to figure out whether there's jalen waddell gets on the field who they drafted in the first round. Devante parker. what's going to happen when him. You mentioned we'll fuller so they've got a nucleus of wide receivers over there. It's going to shake out a certain way. I don't know that we'll fuller is going to have the impact that you would think a guy that can take the top off. It would have. Because i don't believe that bryant floor is is gonna be a pass. Happy offense they're going to try to have some some sort of control and do what he does which is play defense. You said the. Afc north was a place to look. I mean the dolphins at this point. I just feel like what is the measure of success for them with chula like what is the measure like. They have to make the playoffs this year right like. That's where. Brian floors was ahead of schedule last year. I feel like he was a guy. We were talking about for coach of the year because they were ahead of schedule on the moves that he made in the way they were able to find success. When this is a team that revamped like every single position group that your prior felt like and then they went out and drafted to. And i think he was pretty much as advertise last year when he finally did come in for ryan fitzpatrick but now like what is that. Dolphins team even gonna look like as we prepare for this season. It's an extremely competitive division. You've no idea how to is going to be now. The doesn't have ryan fitzpatrick there and again with with what they're looking at in terms of bringing in another quarterback. I have no idea what what to expect from the miami dolphins here. Yeah i you know. I think that they're going to be in that window. You know they always play the new england patriots tough. They played the buffalo bills tough. It's all about the quarterback. It's going to start with two if two does his job. And does it well defensively. I think they're going to be silent and sound. They have some playmakers on the perimeter. The only thing he has to do is just play within himself in catoon. Learn how to play at the pro level and the interesting thing for me though when you look at the miami. Dolphins is about three people that he'll be dealing with the quarterback coach to call off into coordinators to me. That's mind boggling. For young quarterback to be able to try to decipher what the information is. He's getting from upstairs down to the sideline. Charlie fry a quarterback coach on the sideline studentville upstairs co-authors coordinator. So you got all those sorts of things going on all dealing with one quarterback. I just wanna see how he can handle at the pro level because this is not college football and i'm curious to see for to you know look. The preseason was a was a good build up for him but this first five games you start to season at the patriots and then you go bills at home. You're at raiders. The play the colts. Then you're out the bucks. I mean you're gonna find out a lot in those first five games about where this team is. And what chance. They have a chance to compete for and accomplishment. Afc us we talked about how difficult the colts schedule is right out of the gate. The dolphins have a really tough one right out of the gates. Afc east man. They thought when. Tom brady left like this thing was gonna be up for grabs like the bills and the dolphins were like okay. Mimi me like not so much. It could be even more competitive now. Obviously because the bills are good the patriots are going to be better. The jets are going to be better and the dolphins we just said it. Like what are they going to be this season. So man the afc east another intriguing. One that i feel like we didn't really talk too much about but we will do more of that coming up in just a minute because the quarterback competition in new england very close. All we've talked about. Who is it going to be. Is it going to be cam. Newton or is it going to be mcing jones. Now bill bella check is raving in the way that only bill belichick can. I'm being sarcastic. Obviously about one of them. He spoke this morning. We're going to hear from the head coach of the new england patriots. Next you're listening to keyshawn. J. will zubin on. Espn radio and siriusxm channel eighty also on espn news. Shake cornet keyshawn. J. will end zubin on espn radio. We'll be.

"But you know. I'm not in practice. I don't see where i see. I don't see what they see in the media meeting rooms. And there's one component to that. I think a lot of head coaches particularly with their quarterback's the quarterback's they have a very certain specific mentality. I can't speak the to. But i can tell you when fitzpatrick was there bryan. Flora's definitely loved that fitzpatrick had a. I will do anything to win and keep this job mental like he just and maybe you know if the talent there. Whatever whatever ryan fitzpatrick wasn't he did have that component of i don't i'm gonna win this job and screw you guys. This is going to be my team. I m taking it in for was definitely in love with that. I don't know if to elax that. Or what i'm just telling you. There's definitely someone they're important. Probably brian flora's. I think i'm you know you said a lot of nice things about too but to me. The head coach holds the most sway in that situation. And if brian floors was absolutely in love and with two oh we'd be here right now all right so yeah and it may not just be the fact that they don't like to. It may be that. They love watson and that's not the ones so bad one may be so good so that may be the case when you get a top five asaid okay. So the did the advantage of the texans to wait and brian. t. Smith brought this up earlier. You get you'll find out who teams were there. Picking at the end of the season. You know where your team's going to be at the end of the season. Maybe more clarity on the legal stuff more teams in the bidding war in the off season. Why in the world. Unless it's a desperate unbelievable offer. Why in the world would you even move on this. If you're the texans because the advantage ignoring the downside it could go the other way. That's and i brought that up earlier that the legal stuff could make it to. Where did he had devalued by the time february gets here and i'll play. I will absolutely play that out. Because when i talked with the teams that have spoken to the fed but i'm going back to january a multitude of teams that were interested including some that dropped out like as soon as stuff happening marks like the jet..

"In studio talking all things bengals and general. Nfl topics on espn fifteen thirty cincinnati. Sports as you happy without that open the for the new season we should do open longer. I don't think it's long. And i think that we wanted it to feel long awkward. I think we established that. But then you hear enough. It doesn't feel as long as awkward as i think. The desired like visceral reaction. You want to give the people on it. So i think we try to make it more a little word here. Okay yeah that'll be my project for next week. Yeah sort of start next tuesday and then by by the time we get to the know the games beginning then boom were good. Yeah a good thirty seconds of explaining what we're gonna do. I read this free eight or the nfl agent survey from ben standing who is with the athletic and it was thirty three. Nfl agents on a number of different issues around the league. But but this is the thing that stood out to me. And i want i want folks to read it. They cover things like Most trustworthy or at least trustworthy front offices who the best talent evaluators are. Who's working in front offices. Who will one day be a future. Gm and the like what was interesting to me about. This is if ever there was an opportunity for an agent to off on the bengals and hide behind anonymity. This would've been it. And i think there are a lot of people who have followed this franchise and maybe just followed the franchise from afar. Who almost would have expected with. Here's where an agent's gonna pop on mike brown. Here's where agents gonna pop off on the blackburn's here's where an agent's going to pop off on duke tobin that didn't happen. That's what stood out in this thing to me more than anything. I was stunned. I mean this thing has come out. This ben has done this a couple of different times. And i always go through it with the standard Here we go. Who's gonna be. What are they gonna say. What are we gonna have to react to. And scroll down. I scrolled and i scrolled and nothing. There was nothing there now. There was nothing on the positive side. But there's nothing in the negative sign to me. That was a huge win. Expect i swear. I would have been more stunned to see something in the positive side but you know that's i don't know if that's just just the have the way it happened to go this year. Maybe there were some but they just didn't make it into the story but yeah i was pretty surprised to see nothing in there at all. Because it's it's just that's just the perfect target practice for for agents who always have such great relationship angle sides as i perused it. The bengals were mentioned twice One of the questions was among gm's or front office leaders. Whom do you trust the least and the guy who got the most votes is howie roseman. The gm of the eagles. Then bill belichick then joe douglas. And then the. The coach of the dolphins brian floors now others who received votes include the front office of the bengals. But also the buccaneers. Cowboys jags raiders. Texans bears giants. Vikings chargers lions and brown's had their front office or someone in their front office named and so there's some pretty decent company there some also some pretty awful company but basically it was not a big deal. It was somebody mentioned the bengals but not to the extent that you will find some of these. Other people mentioned i ended up..

"Been spiegel. Landed roberts adam paint. Gnc the carter up so just the best way to wrap up the show. I think is still what to expect. Moving forward we have a couple more weeks from regular season begins. We still have one more preseason game and we're under cincinnati. Three of the preseason and brian floors came out and said the guys who are on the bubble were close to being on the bubble. Those are the guys who are gonna play. Our next week just makes it sounded to me. Maybe it's as simple as the dolphins at bubble other wilson Devante parker preston williams. We heard he recently. Just got activated. Maybe a couple of these bigger guys are not going to say everyone. Because you know you'd expect isaiah ford to be outdated expect We've heard about their injuries. but in terms of their top. Guys i starting to think maybe once the preseason ends new had those two weeks before the regular season we might see that these guys are practicing bull in their bubble wrap did here we go to season or it could be all doom and gloom. And these guys are actually. I don't know but that's kind of a vibe. I get Seeing how there was no question that these guys are going to be out the last two games. I don't see him playing third. Yeah and i think you're the word to use their best bubble. I think they should bubble wrap these stars to it. Should be bubble. Wrap you know that offensive launched And some of these other guys at albert wilson's a guy who stands out to me. There's a player who had a huge summer. Everyone was raving about him. I think omar. Kelly said he's not worried about the injury so it makes you wonder if they're not just you know taking extra precaution with a wilson a fuller limb bowed and. I do think that's a little bit more severe. He almost sounds like he could end up on r to start the season which could open up a roster spot preston williams. I would've liked to see him out there but giovane holland brandon jay but giovane holland jake. That was the player that i really would have liked to see. Get out there. Because as i mentioned you know he was at him. Jaylen we wanna see more out of saw salt from wildwood nice von holland. Get pick their on a franks or was their starting at the beginning of the game. So jake i hope that it's just. I'm taking precaution. Because as we've seen throughout this training camp if injuries start to pile up that is going to be the dolphins achilles heel and you know how no shit at to say shots. That is why we make sure you get paid the big bucks for more joshes. Awesome fantastic Secondhand analysis showed a at twitter at ut z.

"brian floors" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell
"That next at that point as anytime right because it's not like there's any dirt on them. It's not like he played bad. It's like he just got beat out by two who emerged because it was tank for two so to me arizona. Would they did though. They obviously moved off. Rose and totally that idea saying we don't. We're not sure we have our quarterback so we're taking another one that to me was a brilliant move and when you see teams like the rams like getting off a guy on his second contract that took you to a super bowl not that long before in. Oh by the way jimmy g. took you the super bowl not that long before and getting rid of them is saying elite. Whatever it takes. We gotta get an elite quarterback in here. Why didn't miami do that. Same approach jones. Do you agree with me. It was a curious decision. It's curious and i also think what's curious is is here and it's pretty obvious that there's that brian flora's is not crazy about too but the front office is and the evidence would point to the fact that last year they made the decision out of nowhere to sit ryan tan or ryan. Fitzpatrick input into a and ryan. Fitzpatrick was completely blindsided by it. He he didn't understand it didn't make any sense. That was doing the bye week right. Yeah and that was during the regular season. And then all of a sudden gets in there and he's trailing late on the road and brian floors pulls from the game puts fitzpatrick again and then he does it again. Later against the raiders and then he was gonna do it again week seventeen but fitzpatrick was under kobe protocol. So he wasn't. He wasn't in the game so they to ride to the entire game. I think the organization told them before the draft. If it was. Brian floor is making the call. I think he draft a quarterback. I think the organization said listen. We invested pretty highly in this guy. We need to give him at least another year because everything pointed to me last year floors had zero confidence in him but that the organization wants us to work. That was the best that makes perfect sense to me. Because i'm going to get. Aj starts on this snacks but to me you never see the amount of pooling starter. I mean back in the old days maybe right. Terry bradshaw got bench literally the year. They won the super bowl. It was his fourth or fifth year. In seventy four. He got benched for games at a time and he says you don't see that anymore. Everyone's so worried about the fragile mindset of these quarterbacks but to just was getting yanked left and right michael lombardi front of the show said you know why that is because before the game. The coach can say or the owner can say. Start this guy in. The coach has to do pretty much but joined the game. No owner is gonna go to bat. Saying i'm going to dictate you can't take him out because now that gets out publicly and the owner looks horrible so when it was when it was the head coach getting to make the call in understanding every time he pulled tool was probably a demerit in the owners mind and he knew it but he still pulled him. So how much does he like to. You know you're gonna make your boss mad and you still do it because you think he's hurting your chance of winning that much. Aj well my thoughts are that that's a it's a. It's a very valid point and when you think about an owner's investment a lot of it's in who the star is it was supposed to be a big star in this league when he was in college..

"Safety out of oregon. You know high draft. Pick a gun. The dolphins brought in here got rid of bobby mccain. How is he going to handle. You knew that game situation because what we've heard all these long you know throughout training camp. I mean we heard what three interceptions and four practices think he picked off any for pick six also. I won't justin feels reportedly. So i mean how devan holland gonna go out there. How's he going to get those. The rest of that secondary in place. And you know do some of those things that have veteran linked bobby mccain did and then you also have here brandon jones. I mean again. A young safety started four games last year against the patriots chargers denver and the patriots again played thirty eight percent of teams snaps. And you also have your jason mccourty is currently has started and i think you know a lot of that is because he is a veteran presence. He has got it understands. His defense can get those you know the corners and the rest of that defense align a little bit better than obviously a rookie but again if giovane holland do half the things that we continue to hear that. He's doing a camp. I mean that just seems like a homerun cy a homerun draft pick and you know when so many people wanted to running back. It was like so against the grain for the dolphins to go that route again. We're already hearing. That's paying dividends. All bite in practice yet just. I wanted to bear. Branded joins me by him. In different players the vet that jones started or played thirty eight percents snaps last season. Just kinda gave me the idea of. What can we expect from. How how'd you know have written down here. How long japan. How would be held out. We don't know how much is going to be eased in the system. We don't know of brantford. Simply just trust a veteran jason mccranie back there on the secondary so if he keeps making these blaze we know he's going to be out there quite a bit Is it only a matter of time. Before he takes over that starting gig or he becomes. Maybe that third safety does or do you think it's a situation where these according brandon jones are going to have have this role until holland you know. It's those thirty percents. Nassar's starts random game because of injury where he can really grabble of position. Where where do you see him. Really starting to make it impacts this here. Yeah that's the million dollar question. Probably one that. Only brian floors and josh boyer knows. I mean. if there's any you know defense that evolves around versatility no getting these different guys in situations. I mean that's prime floors defense. So i can't sit here and truly say i do think he's going to be that. Starting you know quote unquote free safety sooner or later but a mile down here and i brought it up before you know in two thousand nine hundred and played five hundred ninety one snaps at nickel corner in the slot. So you know. How much of that does brian. Flora's you know. Try to implement this year so a lot of different things. Yeah a lot of different things you can do there and i even joke you know. He's the anti mix. Patrick you know some of the knox against winker. I guess the whole reason. He's no longer here is because you know he didn't want to drop down the box. Go against a run and take on some of those blocks. I mean that's what you see. Which von hahn on tape so I do think this is going to be a guy that again no disrespect to bobby mccain. But i think which von holland bruce on tape. You know the range from silent silent. I think this is going to be that. Ball hawking free safety. And i'm pretty damn excited jake. I have no idea how this secondary is gonna shape out especially with those safeties. 'cause i mean we got mccourty got row. We got jones. You know and now we've got holland. I mean you name them. Even byron jones complacent safety right. It got got a great point there. Josh moving on it is the free season. The preseason to panic. That's what we're here for to get a little excited fantasy a sprinkle on some panicking and a little layer of doubt in how good your team's gonna be many really. Have the preseason. Bundle up for you. So josh i gotta ask win. Can we start panicking about the offensive line because you have leave. I can guilt with injuries. the dj fluker thing. I mean we've talked. We've talked about that to her balloon. The face That probably have been the miami dolphins two biggest injuries so far this season and everyone's kind of been under the impression that the dolphins are struggling a little bit. Brexit's the baker's but the bears have one of the better front sub into the league not necessarily trying to doubt that but when you look at their numbers last year they sacked opposing quarterbacks thirty times thirty five times Last year right in the middle of the pack leaks meanwhile khalil. Mack is one of the greatest edge rushers in the league outside linebacker. I mean the dolphins offensive line. Tomorrow night should be able to manage absolves right. There should be like the first team should be taken up field because offensive line gave up two false starts. And there's a fumbled snap as it. Right what is our standard for the offensive line when they play the bears. Yeah i mean. I really wish i could sit here and talk us off a ledge and say that everything's gonna be okay but i don't know that i can't jake. I mean you ask. When time to panic. I mean it is time to start feeling a little bit uneasy because again we mentioned is a lot of young players but nfl. You know it's one loss in the trenches and and this offensive line can't go out there and open up some of those holes can't protect to. It's going to be a long season. But i'm glad you brought up blankenburg because i think i alluded to it on the last podcast. No he was demoted. Is actually an injury. So now you have him yet believe. Jessie davis banged up. You know i heard some people say panky was taken reps or right tackle. I mean. I don't know what the dolphins had planned. In mind. You know when they obviously. Dj fluker obviously. They had to like jesse davis. If the worst case scenario. So i i do understand their plan but at the same time you know to think that you're gonna be able to go out there. And that is your best bet to protect. In your franchise quarterback that does make me feel a little bit uneasy and then you mentioned the center position. I mean that is up in arms. We brought him matt scurr. You know michael dealers taken over that role again. I don't know if that's good or bad. So i wanna see how they handle the defensive line for sure but I'm not going to say that you know i mean. I think you're trying to say that it shouldn't be as bad as you know it could be. But if we've learned anything in the past you know it's definitely going all inspire and it's gonna look you know doom and gloom and it's going to be all we're talking about is horrid offensive line day long for weeks. Can we named this episode. It shouldn't be as bad as it could be because that is sixty really is. It's our story of her life. That is incredible. Kind of the point. You know. I just don't wanna be setting year later tonight. I don't wanna be sitting here waiting till next week's game saying that. Well the offensive line. Excuse x. y. and z. I think that if the dolphins are showing concerns here week. One of the preseason. It doesn't mean they won't fix it. It doesn't mean they didn't have a plan in place Plan doesn't work in those. Are the doubt start tab and just these two are linked here so switching over. Can we see any big plays from the running back group and this one. I found myself into a little whole job so you may get a little mad with me. The listeners might get a little bit of me year. Specifically we we know of miles. Gas in canada brings to the table each week. And you know having been fantasy. Add just see those stats. We know the numbers you're gonna get every week. It's somewhere around. Like eight carries for forty three yards and the fiber such as for for sixty seven yard touchdown. And that's great that's exactly what the delta z. For miles gas. They need that consistency. Need those yards. They can take. He can really get the outside. I don't think that even if the dolphins whatever their plan is at offensive line works out..
"brian floors" Discussed on Bet The Board
"Dolphins since nineteen eighty six and the man under center. There has a bus of emit. Can't know on dan marino so optimism there at the same time this dolphins team that knew they didn't have the big play potential. They scored five touchdowns of twenty plus yards fewest in the nfl. So how do you address that you go out there. You get some receivers and you've talked about it at great lengths and our listeners have become well to indoctrinated with this that will fuller went on the football field. May shawn watson and that. Houston texans offense that much more dynamic. Hopefully some of those same results will translate to miami as to feels more comfortable in the pocket and inability strikes field is on full display. Now we look at miami defensively pain. We saw some departures from that particular group. Devon god on kyle vinoy as well and the big situation. That's playing out before we even get some of the metrics a season ago. I've got to ask you do you think is avian howard situation gets itself rectified. Before we're talking about the dolphins week one game or is this something that's going to linger for the better part of august. I'm not sure. And i thought it would be handled pretty quickly because there really isn't a personal issue there like xavien. Howard loves miami. Miami loves avian. Howard you don't want to set the precedent of giving a guy in extension with four years left on his contract but that was a contract. That was front loaded if you actually dig into it a little bit. There's only about twelve million guaranteed on the rest of the deal. So i would have assumed knowing that the dolphins could use some kappa leniency. They would guarantee a little bit more of that money maybe in the form of a signing bonus and that would help their cap situation and make and happy. I just assumed that was going to happen. It hasn't yet. it will probably get itself figured out. I do know he enjoyed being on the sidelines and hearing chance the other day at camp and his tune is changed a little bit because him and brian floors actually get along great but it does scare you committing that type of money to a guy where yes. He's an absolute playmaker. He changes games. He just got a knack for the football is he the very best corner like down to down. Probably not we knew when he came into the league he had some knee issues. It seems like every off season. His knees are either getting cleaned out. Or there's a little bit bigger of an issue there. So i do ultimately think gets figured out but you knew this was going to happen when you look at. Who is agent is when you look at how much guaranteed money was actually left on the four year deal and when you see that he is certainly better than the other corner opposite him. Who is getting paid more. Do you worry at all about this situation from a philosophical standpoint because obviously brian floors and howard you said get along but flora's also comes from an organization known that these some of its parts are greater than an individual and if they acquiesced to what howard is looking for renegotiating deal or doing something along those lines only one year into a five year. Deal that sets a dangerous precedent going forward and that maybe some of the things that has miami holding back here in general. I think you're spot on you. Know you have to show loyalty to the guys you draft and at some point the by in will dissolve if you're not taking care of your own and so you know we saw god shall leaf. We saw shack lawson leave. After one year god chow was a staple in the community. He was a team leader now. He wasn't worth the money. New england paid him and that ultimately was the issue came down to money. But you do have to start taking care of your own. I know they signed him to you. Know speaking to saving howard. They signed him to an extension now. Him and his agent signed that contract. So at this point you know the dolphins don't want to set the president of we're gonna renegotiate with guys before years left on their deal. But i do think there is a simple solution here and i do think ultimately it does get done now. They've brought in some other guys right. You go and get a holland who's extremely versatile can play a slot corner position and safety. You just goldman who is one of the better. i think. Value signings of the off season and so there are other bodies there that are somewhat capable to fill. The void not deserve in howard's level. But it's not a massive drop off in my opinion they're not going from xavien howard to a guy off the bench. There is some capable talent. Still there in the secondary. This was a defense last year that was in most improved scoring defense from two thousand nine hundred ninety two thousand twenty finish top five the first time since two thousand thirteen forty one sacks is a group lead the nfl takeaways. Third down defense when you dug in some of the metrics. That pain is this something. That's sustainable or to miami experience. An awful lot of fortune in terms of what they were able to produce from a defensive standpoint. Both you know i. I love brian floors in terms of his defensive game plans because they change weekly. And it's predicated on defending the opponent in front of them..

"You're isolated for ten days if you have posits pose context alone. That's a five day quarantine period. So josh i think we're gonna out pretty quickly. If any of these guys are vaccinated close context just by how quickly they return to the field. I mean there's a strong chance we could see for these guys on the field tomorrow. That's two days to test when he falls apart. That's kind of what we assume it will be for stud spill but this is something we're going to begin with. I mean josh seems like throughout the whole thousand twenty one season. And you see some of those memes out there you know. Some people are thinking you know. Maybe brian floors foresaw some of this. You know i. I don't think that that is really his intent there but you know you see guy point and as head like thinking one. Step ahead you with. Brian floors having to offense coordinator. No one goes down. This does allow them to. Almost you know in a way not skip a beat. So it's unfortunate that it happened. The one thing that i think really came out of all this. And i'm not gonna touch on too much but if you go to adam shaheen twitter page. He basically says you know. I will not comply then in his location. It says somewhere without a mask it. I just thought it was very interesting to see. You know adam shaheen in his view and all this especially no with it affecting the tight anger so we again. The dolphins are one of the more vaccinate teams. I believe in the nfl and as we continue here we'll give the teams that competitive advantage heading into the season so Hopefully god's out there sooner later but to your point you know we should have a good idea a which these guys were vaccinated in. No which of these guys weren't. There's no doubt about that end before we take a break here at and really dive into the show. Which is the wide receivers. There's been some position changes players. Which josh corrective wrong. But i thought in half Reporters couldn't say like who's starting. And i thought it was just kind of use. The context clues of you know it was a catch from to air was a pass from to us so you picked with the first team and so not on like that but it seems like the reporters here are saying like who's on the first. He was on the second which seems a little unusual. Yeah i think for the first was the first few weeks. It was a little bit. Hush hush with those many camps some of those things. But i think now that fans are back in there. I mean i guess there's really no way of them to stop the fans from reporting this. So i think that's why you're seeing berry. Jackson think it was actually like three forty five yesterday. Could officially do it. And you immediately saw these different positions in the changes. So jake white. You're room because it does kind of shed some light on what these positions might look like heading into the preseason and inevitably the regular season as well. We might compare keep played left guard over the last few days after starting at right tackle he was a left tackle A lot of people are already pitching him to be a starter of the season so seeing him play of left guard over salman kinley is a little concerning as we on can defend club but again it's the point of the preseason training camp where you're trying different things you really trying to get the best five guys out there and i guess based concern with having someone like i could play left guard is that you have. Jessie davis at right tackle. I think jesse davis has a ceiling in terms of what he can do on the offensive line but he has a very strong for where he can fill it at a lot of different positions. I would rather keep him as your six or seven offensive. Lineman will feel like a dj fluker also filled up this role when he returns. But just the guy who can come in and no matter. What the injury is you know..

"Mike Grable was the winner. But now that we have Dan Campbell in the mix here who would win in an NFL head coach Royal rumble and don't give me the stupid Andy. Andy Reid is not winning an NFL head coach Royal rumble. Okay, I think that right now, Dan Campbell has to be the favorite. Although Robert Salome might be in the running as well. But I think Dan Campbell the fact that he might bite your kneecaps off and who knows he fights dirty. I don't think Mike Vrabel has a chance to compete with that. The only thing I would say now, Brian for people I forgot Brian floors like 63. So Brian Floors is not small. Anthony. People picked Anthony Lynn. He can't participate in and now he's fired. He gets another chance will put him back in. They have to be NFL head coaches. Current NFL head coaches don't be giving me Deuce Gruden and saying that he has a chance. Okay, It's got to be dad. Jon Gruden and went in it either. Jon Gruden's body looks like Rick Flares of the end. Ric Flair was a good fighter. So maybe rightfully no, I'm just kidding. I'm gonna want to know. Connor from you later on who could win? We're gonna have an argument over this. Because Dan Campbell talks a big game, but I know for a fact. That one time Mike Vrabel made urban Meyer see God in the locker room. And that's something Mike Vrabel is very tough individual.

Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?
"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this. This this mind you oh tell me why should get killed but but this notion that Oh and they brought Muhiba Marvin Marvin Lewis. He brought him in to to do that. Situation wasted the same with the giants the giants they had irebi enemy. They what Joe Judge Chris Rashard Rashard. Excuse me Chris Restoring. Yeah so now. Now we're down to one. Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.
Miami Dolphins zeroing in on Brian Flores
"The story broke yesterday. That the Miami Dolphins job, which is the last vacancy, right? That the insider to get the job was New England's defacto defensive coordinator, Brian Flores, now there've been a lot of talk about this Dallas assistant coach. What's his name, Richard Richards, who's African American of being in line to get the Miami job? So when it was announced Brian Flora's apparently is going to get the job Clarence hill who covers the Cowboys for over twenty years said the richer got screwed over. And apparently, the NFL is now over when it comes to hiring, a black coaches even added the line does Colin Kaepernick cab job. Well, immediately clear and sills tweet was met by people saying, do, you know, Brian floors is an after many people posted a photo of Brian floors. And by the way, it's a great story floor as you grow up in the projects in New York. It's been with the patriots organization started as a scout wral obviously elevated to defensive coordinator Clarence dill finally responded by. Saying my bad on Bryant Flora's. It's been a bad day. All ran a lost my driver's license on my company credit card. I'm checking into my LAX hotel and going to bed. That's a good idea Clarence because again race baiting in the NFL. I don't know is productive. But there are going to be a lot of questions. No question Kerry about a season, which five African American head coaches were fired and maybe not even official about floors right now. Right. One will be hired. What are what are your thoughts right now about the current state of the Rooney rule is it necessary and just the general view of who should be hired who's should be in line for these NFL head coaching job? Well, the Rooney Rooney the Rooney deal is I guess it's it's necessary. I think we have to have equal opportunity and have people give people of color have a chance to get a job. I mean, I think that's absolutely necessary. But I also think that situations like this. This sets it back. Right. You have a guy that's popping off about a situation that he really doesn't know you have to actually research stuff, you have to actually get to the bottom of what's going on before you actually tweeted out somebody who's in his position who's been there for twenty years twenty year doing NFL for a long time. It's not know that Brian. Patriots. I didn't know who he was. That's that's pretty sad on his part. But yes, the rule is necessary. But I also think the necessary they most qualified guys to get the job also believe in that as well. I don't think you just give somebody a position because of color or race or gender or whatever the case might be. I think the most qualified person gets the job. But yes, Rooney rule is necessary. Well, I think the Arizona situations. What really started a lot of people you hire Steve walks in a situation where you're bringing in a rookie quarterback. And it doesn't work. It's a disaster. They go three and thirteen coming off an eight eight season, right. And they fire him. He's not the first guy that's been a one and done guy s p Carol. He was a one and done guy with the New York Jets. So a lot of people have been one and done guys. But because he's African American, and then you go out and hire cliff Kingsbury, right? Who had a losing record at Texas Tech who has no track record of being a winning head coach that's worthy the alarm bells. Are going off. Absolutely. Yeah. You can't like like, I just said you have to hire qualified people do to do these jobs. This is the business where it's all about winning. It's about putting the product on the field and that product has to win. So if you're bringing a guy like Kingsbury a guy who you just said lost in college got fire thirty five and forty. Yeah. He's he's not he's not a winner. Bye. Bye. Bye. Winning standards. He's not that guy yesterday to bring a guy like that coach, Patrick Mahomes coast, Patrick Mahomes, but anybody goes in record, right? So for him to come in there right after that fire, and that's just not a good look for Arizona. Yeah. The one and done doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I mean. Yeah. Ended up having to pay the guy off. Anyway, I think that one season for any coach really isn't very fair. We're in the Geico Fox Sports radio studios. We talked a lot about games today. There's a couple of charger guys out here that are really anxious about tomorrow.
