Former Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Signs One-Year Deal With Bills
"Announced earlier today former bears quarterback mitch trubisky signing a one year deal with the buffalo bills presumably to backup josh allen. There it is a two and a half million dollar deal with some incentives tied into it. That's injury presumably would be the other scenario. He gets beat out for the backup and he's the third. Is that one. maybe it gets cut. It's a there's a chance he'll be the backup. Let me ask you this question though. Because it's easy and it's if we're making fun of mitchell way or mitchell and that's worthy of being made fun of i think but not this. He's okay right you know. He's making more than a lot of hardworking people. You know literally do in a lifetime in this bad year but they are in the end of these players these reaching the pinnacle of their profession. And it's a billion dollar profession. They make money. They're supposed to make. I mean to me. The beauty of the nfl's rev share agreement. Is they're saying okay. The players contribute fifty percent the infrastructure. The all legacy to have the trademarks team. You know however you want to think about that fifty percent we take the money in. We divvied up and go. I mean to me that means that you can't even debate if collectively that you were jones but collectively with the players deserve their millions and millions and billions ultimately. They do that said we can. Because they're making so much money. We can have some fun with it. But i gotta be honest. I think that trubisky getting resigned by the bears was closer than we thought. Because i would make the following case. Let me ask you joan. What you would have made the odds. I don't we didn't do it at the time but right when this season let's say the regular season ended and those that remember obviously foles got her trubisky came back in play statistically significantly. Better at that point. I would have guessed about thirty percent chance. The trubisky would've had been rinse we signed in some significant way. Not like a five hundred million dollar deal but a real deal. I think the odds weren't worse than thirty percent. What would you have guessed. The is debate. I yeah i would have said probably about the same because that was a lot of the discussions i know in and around chicago that day. Did he play himself back into consideration for the twenty twenty one quarterback job and when i see him getting beat out for the job. I don't mean that. As a slight m i actually think. He's a much better quarterback than people give him credit for. I think for that kind of money if somebody comes in and outplays him buffalo's not gonna be tied to that contract like if he would have signed for seven or eight million

Inside The Russell Wilson-Seahawks Rift
"Years russell. Wilson has been wanting to throw the ball more and at the start of this year. It finally happened russell. Wilson was not good in the first half of the twenty twenty season. He was excellent deep cap touchdown. Seattle you run down there and set in his answer. Any better than that was fourth in yards per attempt. Weeks one through nine i. In passing. touchdown percentage was second in passer rating. Wilson keeps as default talk. He was legit. The best player in the league madden gave him a ninety nine overall rating during the season because he was cooking notion as he throws an accident. Edi feeds defensive player of the years like russell. Lula's legitimately the best guy in football games of the season then week nine arrived and they had this game against the buffalo bills that you recently wrote about. Can you tell us what happened in that game. And afterwards what happened is russell had to cook in the kitchen. Just kind of just caught on. Fire his paycheck wine with a sack at a takeaway from russell wilson. I actually watched that game with a former cr defensive and cliff april and teased talking me through it. And he's like russ's off he's trying to do too much and i think turned it over like four times. He threw a pick on the goal. Line throws for the jordan with tyco. I think that really turned the tables for the whole team. After that loss where they gave up forty four points and turned it over a bazillion times and got embarrassed in buffalo. Well what i would tell you that. I don't recognize that game. We haven't seen the look like that and it's a game that i don't have any place in my brain for. He told us he didn't even have any space in his brain for that game. That's very important subjects right like the fact that he considered that not seahawks. Football was influential the rest of the year. Well the following week against the rams things. I guess only got worse. Wilson throws and the other one four darius williams second game. I know that there are better days ahead. I'll use a baseball now but sometimes you go up to the plate you know and you don't have your way today mike. You and our colleagues. Mike sando jason jank's wrote about a meeting. That happened shortly after that loss to the rams can you take us inside that meeting room and just explain what went down russia's meeting with the coaches normal game planning type of meeting and he has suggestions he is giving input usually does and his suggestions just weren't dismissed. There were dismissed in a way that russell didn't feel appreciate it. And i think that is really important. I'm sure they disagree in every meeting ever but in this particular instance rust belt that he was not being appreciated so rushed stormed out was basically this idea that. How dare anyone in this building. Be dismissive of my ideas. I am of the quarterback was almost like kevin durant warriors when he was like no way up. I'm kevin durant russell wilson and he rustled perceives him to be someone who has succeeded. In spite of what's been around him not because of running for his life making the pro bowl with battle lines perceive that to be like the story of his career. And you get to week eleven. And it's like do. Just chill out. We got this no. You don't don't get it. I got it and that forced him out the door. Russell in the second half of the season was which is not himself like he was twenty eighth in yards per attempt in his final eight games he was sixteenth. In a touchdown percentage nineteenth in passer rating. These are bad numbers. These are not just like below average twenty nine yards per attempt man that was lower than the cincinnati bengals. Even when the circumstances are bad around russell he's been good enough to elevate situation still played inefficient level and twenty twenty was the first time it was like. Wow he's not able to elevate the lack of talent or execution of preparation around him and it produced like some of the worst numbers of his career certainly produced the worst playoff game of his career against the rams in the wild round sitting meeting big. Who's going into other sack four sacks two takeaways the interception return for the touchdown and floyd now all right. Let's fast forward a few weeks to the super bowl. The seahawks have been knocked out by the rams in the wildcard round and russell. Wilson is at super bowl. Fifty five in tampa bay sitting with none other than commissioner. Roger goodell mike. Tell us what you found in your reporting about russell. Wilson's experience at the super bowl. You know it's really interesting. Because i tweeted during the super bowl. That antonio brown caught a touchdown from tom brady in front of russell. Wilson there is the pass for the touchdown. What drive a super bowl. Winning drive that brady's only done throughout his whole career. I kind of just said it like star cast the as a joke. Not really thinking about how russell fell and then as our reporting i was like okay so i i was right like he is really upset. And it's so many factors. There is the fact that tom brady is in. The super bowl is the fact tom. Brady's they're playing pine. A good line is the fact that tom brady is playing in a system. That gives him some atonomy like got to pick players gronk. Antonio brown is the fact that mahomes is there again laying for again in a system that like essentially like his talents. The last time also played in the super bowl loss of tom brady seven years later prime many years. Tom brady's back. I suppose in a soup. Kitchen fuming so during the superbowl. He's texting his quarterback coach. And just close. Friend jake heaps. He's a local radio guy. Here jake to set it on the radio. He's talking about how russ was missed during the game texting him. They'll look the he had was in reflective of the text messages. I was receiving russell wilson. Just ultimately the overall sentiment was that he was mad that he was not lying in this thing and then russell spoke to the shortly after the game show. What's up with our line. You see that. Winning requires a good line and the gist of peace response. As far as i was told is about faith. And just you know we got this. And that just wasn't good enough for us

"buffalo bills" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Tuesday in seventy four years, and we are talking right now on Monday and we're doing that because there has been this steady drumbeat of positive cova tests that we've seen from the Tennessee Titans, the opponent of the buffalo bills on Tuesday night. Over the last couple of weeks, we're talking twenty four positive tests between players and team personnel, and it feels still I presume like this game could still get canceled any time until the ball is actually kicked off. So what are you hearing from the bill side? Are there concerns you've heard from players or coaches about fears around the virus going into this titans game. First of all, we haven't heard anything officially from the bills since Thursday they've been in limbo throughout the week and the weekend and kind of letting that spill over into the contact they put out into the world. But from what we had heard from them, they just WanNa play the game. They don't WANNA lose out on that game check. They don't want to be punished for something that they didn't do in that. You understand you gotta roll with the punches there in this era, but it does At its core kind of feel like a punishment if you can't play and you can get paid because of what another team is doing, it's like when you turn in your assignments but the kid across the table from you keep talking in the whole class gets recess canceled. So there's a little bit of frustration there. But from what they tell us, they trust the league they are just kind of rolling with it. They're finding things out as we're finding things out and it's kind of a tricky situation. For everybody involved. So the flip side of that dynamic, the diligent student and the one that is not getting their work in the way they're supposed to the flip side is like okay well, then the titans should have to forfeit has there been any talk around bills camp around that being a thing they would like to see again, not publicly because they've they've kept that core belief that they just want to play the game back. So we spoke with Mike high on Thursdays one of the last available. Players that was made for us. He said, he didn't even realize postponing canceling Games was a possibility. He just always assumed that. Okay. If this guy test positive, then they're going to have to move forward without that player. So it does get to a point where you can't just keep pushing games back. You know there's only so many times you can do that, and especially if there's a case of explicit negligence from the top down in an organization than forfeiting a game has to be at least considered. It seems harsh but so was the not staying socially distant and not masking up in the facility and all these other allegations that have been levied against the titans. So. Let's think positive for a second I mean it in the other way the conventional way that we used to talk about it because you are in Buffalo Marcel, and if there's one fan base in sports that really has the ability to think positive amid all this negativity, it's the buffalo bills because they have experience in making the best of the worst. This season, they actually are the best in their division they are four and this year they are leading the AFC east and the thing that is so surprising to me is that it hasn't been their defense that's been behind their hot start. It's actually been their offense. Certain. Territory. As they. Forty seven. Oh strange has this season felt to you as the bills beat reporter. It is Kinda strange because even in my one season covering the buffalo bills, I have been trained to expect defensive gritty football every time I enter that stadium guy have to psych myself up and say, okay, we're going to see a fourteen to ten game and you're GonNa like it. It's so different this game to the point where it's like, wow, it's kind of exciting to see this offense take the field especially with the way that Josh Allen is playing. Touchdown. Easy. For the pills Josh. Rushing touchdown, and now Josh Allen a passing touchdown. This is kind of what you would expect it to look like on Madden, and that's like our favorite thing to say sportswriters, right like this isn't madness isn't madden. Early season just put a whole bunch of weapons together put them all on the field at the same time like Brian Cabell. The Bills Offensive Coordinator has frequently done, and then just let your quarterback go to work Allen Fires a quick one caught by John Brownlow, makes the catch at the ten at the five. into the touchdown buffalo that was too easy. Man Come on. I want to say this ain't your mom and dad's team, but it kind of is. This is looking like the bills of the early nineties that kind of offensive firepower. Josh Allen to your metaphor does play quarterback like I used to play mad at like two, thirty, a M. Lots of questionable decisions, but in the end prolific. He has been maligned throughout his career Marcel but he's always been entertaining good or bad and this year he's pretty much been straight up good twelve touchdowns one interception third in the NFL and passer rating. What has changed with Josh Allen. I used to say, you will never feel as alive as you feel when you watch Josh Allen Play Football. That could sometimes be a good thing. Sometimes could be a bad thing, but you are going to feel that heart rate go up what's changed for him is beyond just having that third year under the same coordinator in same coaching staff. That's that's kind of a rarity in today's game it's just the little things short up over the off season of how to conversation or two with his offseason quarterback coach, Jordan Palmer who works with guys like Sam Darnold, he worked with Joe Borough works with mahomes before and. He said that they'd just focused on one thing in the past three off seasons. It was strengthening his base in his stride when he was entering the League because that's where a lot of those erotic truly erotic throws were coming out of college been last year it was throwing with anticipation. Anticipating windows in guys breaking free. And then this year, it was just control. We all know he's got this rocket arm, but you don't always have to use a hundred percent of your art. What I thought was interesting about their work. This offseason was he wasn't just throwing to professional receivers in professional route runners. When they were working the talent ranged all the way from NFL down to collegiate receivers down even high school and youth receivers and what Joe said was that those kind of that kind of difference in speed difference in talent. It made him adjusts his arm angles and adjust how he threw each route because you're getting a different look a different window in a different angle, every single time and that kind of practice taught him. Okay. You don't just have to fire it in there. Sometimes, you gotTa Finesse that ball into your receiver and we're seeing a lot of it. He is among the League's best at completing crossing routes in two thousand and twenty among. The League's best completing those deep balls twenty plus yards down the field, and we're not just talking about you know an incremental improvement from his first two years we're looking at thirty, forty, fifty percent increase in his completion percentage any throwing the ball at the same rate. That's where we're seeing the biggest change in Josh Allen Game. So now I'm stuck imagining Josh Allen Firing one hundred mile an hour football at like a fifteen year olds. A lot of, NDA..

He goes one the routes they run to the receiver they are three, the movement they do in their scheme we put guys in. Spots that we feel is best for them. That is why we made the decisions we made. So you know a Josh Boyer, says that there's a reason behind it I mean you've got to trust that they continued set Howard healthy. You have to wonder if even Howard was truly one hundred percent. If you didn't go through, you know all the rehabilitation, the knee injury again if he would have been on Stefan. Digs, because before Byron Jones got to town, you know who would've been would've been exhibiting Howard covering Stefan take so I don't understand throwing the rookie on there. No matter how much confidence you have in him, and then to get beat like a drum repeatedly and then not going out there and trying to do something different try to serve something differently Adam. It was a long day for the secondary and. I think we have to talk about the pass rush because you know they're equally to blame for for what we saw on Sunday how frustrating? Where they? There was a play where I think Josh. Allen was scrambling for his life and he put Calvin landscapes just walking. He didn't have to do a move or anything and bitcoin just kind of fell over himself. I've never like we had Ryan Taylor at work. I'm not going to compare into to any quarterback because that just caused more fits I've never saw him break anybody's ankles ever why? Why is it that when you're facing the dolphins all of a sudden these are the most lucid quarterbacks in the entire universe and you know when you look at the signings of many log on check loss and you have to wonder what on earth this was was this just spending money for the sake of spending money and I need to be very clear about something here is that the Miami Dolphins are into the season isn't over? Everything has certainly changed, but teams are started to have like a fifteen percent chance of making the ploughs and again, that's not even the point I'm trying to make. It's that we wanted to have a competitive football team and you know to pick up some wins to be in situations where they have players who become stars who developed induce quality starters not a defense that was spent hundreds of millions of dollars on and all of a sudden opposing offenses can get nine yards per play against us. That is a concern. We can say this was a close win. It's excited. But Bryant floor is brought into defensive-minded head coach. I haven't seen any growth we thought drone Baker was gonna all of a sudden turn into the all-star. We thought he'd be this great player who can really turn the tides of games that hasn't been the case what this defense seems like is a group of guys who aren't going to put you in a situation lose, but they're not gonna put you new situation to win, and that starts with the pass rush because it was down existent the running game we they didn't want them to we. We spoke all. Before the, let's make them throw. The ball is smoking throw the ball at the Josh Allen threw the ball forty-six time crazy. Again, I would prefer after seeing the dolphins give a complete, a forty, six, forty, six, forty, seven, thirty, eight, and twenty, six. I'd rather do the same exact game plan all over again because you expect Brian for a linebacker guy a secondary to have some sort of way to kind of make Josh Allen concern the dolphins have yet haven't interception this year and that does the pass rush. We saw Van Noy one go right through his hands and. I'M GONNA have to keep reminding myself this every couple of minutes season still early. But at the same time, it's your truly not paying attention. If this isn't something you, you're frustrated and you know when I list off the grid completions. The one that hurt the most was the two, thousand, six, hundred, the smallest one it was the second in two thousand, five the dolphins and a great opportunity to have a chance to really turn the tide of the game. Twenty six yards right there on that I play. It's just seems like that. The dolphins don't have an identity and defense we felt that secondary was going to be so great such great strength. Monogamy could turn into an envelope pro. He could turn into a great player Brennan Jones had nine tackles after twelve tackles last week. Sure. That's awesome. But when you see them giving up thirty one points, these four, hundred, seventeen yards you you get legitimately concerned about what? Where's the direction of this team going we spent all this money where's anybody that can really come out and be a fulltime studt with a full-time stuttered Lincoln Fitzpatrick. We traded away required McMillan after he was really kinda coming along at the end of the season and it's trust the coaching staff they know what they're doing and that much. must very well be the case but Bradford's defensive-minded head coach in his what eighteen games so far has given up more than thirty points and eleven of those where is this kind of shock this? All of hey, guys a genius on the defensive end of the ball will we don't have talent we're making up in this. We haven't seen it yet. The dolphins won five of nine of the season last year. That's great. But if we're holding our CAP I'm hanging. On that at the end of the season. We have big concerts. We have legitimate concerns about the team I'm sorry I kind of wow a rant there but that's just kind of the state of the defense and I do understand yes let's wait. Let's give it timeless. These people develop but if you're those thoughts creep in that, hey, we're getting hoodwinked again and hey, we better be careful the dolphins have two first round picks second round picks, and if the season goes one specific way, the dolphins could have two high picks I really don't. Want more of those picks to be wasted..

"So I'm going to see her slanders name like you see me do on twitter and like you're GonNa hear me do on this podcast i. mean this guy is I don't know the best way to put it. It's like a waters it's like A. It's like when you wake up and you know in the morning and you drink a lot of beer the night before you have to go down to the bathroom, the P. that thing is going all like you're getting it all over the wall to cease four that is Josh Allens accuracy. That is literally Josh Oun when he has to throw the football. So we know they got Stefan, they're really got John Brown they have some. Towns wide receivers. But if you can stop the run which I mean we've yet to see the dolphins do and force Josh Allen to throw I mean I. think that's where the successes we know the dolphins got gas for five point two yards per carry six different players for New England actually at twenty yards rushing Josh Allen threw the ball against the jets brace yourself in this was something that you put down forty six times. Against the jetsons and finished with three hundred, six yards, dolphins, secondary's obviously much better than jet secondary. So again, if they can stop stop the ground game, enforce Josh down to make plays with his arm I. think that's when the successful com no Josh Allen has gashed the dolphins since joining Buffalo but but I think this could again if they can stop the run and force him to throw the football, this could have a different result and what we what we're used to. Yeah. Absolutely I mean, the dolphins secondary to no surprise is much better than the jets secondary and you don't you. Once you get those two or three drives where it's a third and seven, your defense will settle right in and then you'll give offense just a few opportunities that they need to really take advantage of that and hopefully score a couple points so it shouldn't be a surprise. Let's make the bill. So the ball cannot believe that. Josh. Allen threw the ball four times against the jets and only finished with the six yards. Something, I saw the dolphins do and I think it's going to be the same as they're just going to try to limit the big plays. Right? The Patriots really didn't have any huge gashing plays, but you know once you can kind of get Josh Allen to make play or look for one of those twenty yard plays. That's where I think the dolphins can really take advantage of and so that's something I'm really hoping for. But again, this is a tough challenge for the. Dolphins especially. F. You see what they did against the Patriots. These teams in terms of Buffalo and New England are very identical. The difference is kind of know we knew what to expect or we not expect against Buffalo where the Patriots you thought they'd run with Cam Newton, but you didn't exactly understand how they were going to do and that I hope I'm talking myself into it opens fan as that being the big issue. Finally, let's give her a little pre game predictions here. And you kind of mentioned it the dolphins are going to have a shot play football game. Keep it close I. Don't think the dolphins are really going to build a are gonNA. You know have no turnovers are going to have three flags and then still get blown out by thirty. It's just not going to tip that game if you limit your flags you turn. The ball over hopefully once or less this game's going to be winnable it's going to be absolutely winnable. It's when you look up and it's all other. You know twenty to nothing early in the second quarter when it's going to be a disaster that is what the situation the dolphins cannot get themselves into. especially that is something that fitzpatrick is kind of prone to doing. If that does happen. I. Wonder I wonder I wonder how soon we could possibly see too. I, mean especially I beat it. Do I just keep thinking of your video he's just always standing right there ready to go in. Like I just mentioned the dolphins have a very young team, but they had just four penalties for thirty five yards in week. One two of those by drone. Baker are Unavo- are excuse me avoidable They're Kinda. Just knuckleheads plays a happens. The dolphins had four penalties for seasonal three times in two thousand nineteen. If you limit those penalties, you limit the turnovers. This team has shot I'm confident that the offense will get more opportunities to try things and really get rolling and open spin. So I'm just going to say dolphins are going to take twenty thirteen. I love that prediction and I mean I too am a Dolphin Fan in everyone listening hopefully dolphins fan or else maybe we're doing wrong podcast but I, I love all your lawyer reasoning behind it and I I do think this game is very winnable. I know the dolphins have struggled against buffalo as of late We know buffalo went out there and look pretty well week one but again, it was against a a Trojan jets team. So I see this game I think the dolphins got. To come out the obviously I stopped around like we said, they got established a run Game Ryan. Fitzpatrick has play much better than what we saw I think devante Parker is going to bounce back like you said, if he's healthy and ready to go if not I mean that's going to I mean that that a whole a whole new depth of issues come into play. Then if Parker's out and we gotta rely on Press Williams, didn't really look like that wide receiver one like you said. Week you know as a afford juki grant and maybe a Lynn Bowden or Malcolm Perry mean that to me. Would I don't know that I would feel as confident going to this game if Devante Parker does sit out I don't think golf fan. What's so lots riding on his health and you know a lot of these players health as we head into the weekend but again, established Iran do not make. Mistakes, if you're fitzpatrick and force Josh Allen to throw the football I too am a dolphins fan. But just part I don't know I think to England you kind of expanded Cam Newton to run the football the way did you kinda hope the dolphins also kind of for saw that but they got absolutely gashed and I don't think they can do that again I think they're going to be able to. Do enough to stop the run or to slow down there but I don't think it's enough to stop him again on the dolphins fan loved the dolphins with all my heart but I'm going to go with Buffalo here twenty, seven twenty. Eight I'm sorry. I don't want I. Don't want it to happen I. Mean I'm angry if it does happen but. After the way they played the Patriots I mean I it's hard to foresee that big of a change because what they had two hundred seventy yards rushing. So what the bills are in have one, hundred, fifty. So we'll see what it is. Twenty seven twenty bills don't hate me. I hate, you. But that that wraps up our buffalo bills preview keep the conversation going on twitter I can be found at J..

"You gotta wait to see how the season goes over the next three weeks. If these teams are one in three, oh and four something like that. I'd be looking at whatever I'd go up to them and say, Hey, we got two second round picks Houston and our own. How can we make it? So you get the one that's lowest and I think they'd take that because if let's say for the Houston Texans season becomes an absolute disaster, they have a very tough scheduled to begin the year I. Think they you know they started on Thursday night football gets cheese. Now they're playing the ravens. And the schedule is going to remain challenging for them in the AFC south. especially with the titans are doing I would honestly say to either one of these teams that I'd start the conversations of we're GonNa, make it where you guys get the lower of the two picks and you can candice there and say, well, obviously the higher. But let's say Houston if they're season is awful is absolutely possible. They figured out that they get the seventh pick I can't see the dolphins finishing with. A pick higher or lower than like seventeen at the absolute best case scenario, right? Like we want them to make the playoffs. Odds are I feel they're going to be in the hunt team when it's all said and done. So I mean if it's picked fifteen through eighteen, whatever it may be a suborned there I think that could be enough to really get the conversation going and whatever may be amid round pick something bad to you know make things a little more nice would be great. Another thing about Robinson, you mentioned the frame I think you could use him Parker Williams very interchangeable but the thing about dove echelman i. really just kind of thought about this is you kind of look at to in College He loves the slants. He loves the quick passes and you know then his wide receivers are in a situation could play Odell Beckham made that his his you know shining moment in New, York right it was the dump off passes. It was the slants from ally manning where he took it sixty five yards. To the House yes we know about the catch, but I mean, this guy is a really really quick twitch variable that the dolphins could most certainly us moving forward and know Beckham, who's a lot of drama I think I'd want Robinson more. But if we're talking about scheme I think we'd have to really hard and really closely about how Beckham could possibly be that type of guy that two of could have as a match made in heaven where they work. So well, together, they feed off each other's strengths and really put together an unstoppable force. Man I agree with you and I think what this all comes down to again is how you determine the dolphins to truly compete go up there and you know make try to try to win the division twenty twenty because again we keep saying how they're going to be good to twenty one we're talking to all these draft picks they have we we know how good the wide receiver classes next year we know these. Have a lot of Alabama receivers coming out you know you could get Devante Smith or you can get Jalen Waller Jomar chasers so many different wide receivers out there. You know rendell more the list goes on normal shot Bateman. There's so many good wide receivers next year. So we'll point the dolphins say, what may we don't do this and we go and get this younger player that's on a rookie contract that we. Can Mold that we know is this young determined player I. Mean Odell Beckham Jr as much as we love him here Miami, we know his issues. You know. We see. We see what he's doing right now there with his best friend Jarvis Landry and Baker Mayfield everyone thought he was going there in this team was gonNA turn into a super bowl contenders complete opposite we all the drops he had. So I don't know. The dolphins are gonNA. Go out there and make a move for either one of these guys. But if they do I, do think would be on Robinson I'd have no problem with that. But again, I think a lot of it is really comes down to how badly the dolphins field taking a beaten to twenty and I, think us as fans I mean, we think they're right there in this I mean obviously we might have. been stepped back a little bit. But I think I'm with you with the dolphins being in the hunt and a guy like Alan Rasi definitely pushed them over the edge. Let's take a moment to hear from our advertisements and then we'll get into question of the week I buffalo bills SP nation presents the SP nation..

Keyword there all right well this week thought about why the Pelicans are GonNa Richard Zion Williamson the season while the bills are going to beat the Patriots this weekend and why Madison Bumgarner is the best value so far and free agency. Let's start off with the New Orleans Talibans and and one Zion Williamson Zion Williamson the number one selection in the nineteen NBA draft. And I I were. He gets hurt after a pretty impressive summer league I would say and all of a sudden. There's a six to eight weeks time line and at this time on just keeps getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and we're now past eight weeks. Zaylon is still not cleared to actually take part in five one five staff or do any any significant court trills. Greg this is this is a story. I've seen play out before we've seen. Oh He's is going to be ready in a couple of weeks. Don't worry about it when our teams tanking and that just never comes. I will say I check this out and I was surprised to see over at Bethesda sportsbook. They're actually plus twenty five hundred not amongst the twenty five thousand skews me not even the worst teams is in the NBA but there is just not a chance in the world. The PELICANS are going to Risk Zion's long-term future or quite frankly their draft pick and twenty twenty by playing this guy this year. Well I mean the question. The PELICANS have to face. Is You know especially with the guys they got in that in that Lakers the deal that sent Anthony Davis over how Zion's going to Gel with some of these guys and and I think that you know obviously you don't WanNa push him back from an injury early but I could definitely Italy see a post all-star break bringing this guy back and just letting him get used to the game. We saw firsthand me and you a sixers fan saw this play Out Year after year after year and it took such a weird adjustment period for some of these guys that set out like Ben Simmons like Joel Embiid. I took a little bit longer for them to kind of get their feet under them at the NBA level now. Obviously Zion is an unbelievably athletic kid and a lot of explosiveness. This is part of his game and I think that that's something the pelicans definitely have to monitor coming back from something like this and you don't want to exacerbate exacerbate an injury and obviously their seasons essentially over I mean there what sixteen games under five hundred already to start the season. They've lost a ton of games in a row. I think it's double digits at this point. It's you know the the hunt for the playoffs is obviously over but with the way the NBA draft is waded. Now tanking doesn't work as much so getting this guy even a little bit of run not only for the team but also for the fan base. I mean this is a guy. This is the Mo what. Let's let's be honest. This is probably the most hyped number one overall pick since Lebron. If we're going to be we're going to be perfectly honest here Just from the amount of media coverage the amount of focus he went to Duke. There's just so much focus on this guy to to not to not put him out there for a couple of games just to get his feet wet at the NBA level. I think is unfair. I don't think the Pelicans give a damn about getting him. acclimated playing with Josh Heart and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram and Jackson Hayes and derrick favors. Whoever it is they want to put out there? You'll notice that I didn't mention drew holiday or JJ rennick because if you're if you're listening to the scuttle bought of late it seems like both of them could potentially be on the block. Why did you leave us? Jj why did you do it only to get traded and take your power out of your own hands. They're concerned about Zion long-term and you talk about the weighted it'd lottery system There's just -cation to that I get where you're coming from but the point is it's still better to have a better chance. You know if I I understand. It's not as drastic a difference. It has been in the past with more flat and lottery odds but worse team still have a better chance. And that's all you can really ask for. You know. There was never a scenario where that number one team was. Actually even the favorite to get the number one pick. The field was always the favourite because that that odds were what twenty five percent twenty six percent back in a pre weighted lottery. You know there. There was never any guarantees. And we've seen plenty of teams tank only to get the second pick in the draft third. Pick in the draft now God could be fifth. Pick in the draft if you're if you're New York Knicks Fan with RJ Barrett. Going four last year that he was hardcore. Tanking this is I on. This is all about Zion. This is about his future and who you're going to pair them with if you can add the James Wise Men are and Anthony Edwards or something along those lines. I I don't know how much percents Lamelo ball would make as he would potentially be taking a spot from his older brother but added Edwards or a Weisman. Come back next year and see what you got. But you're not risk nothing. I mean the problem is we've gone back and forth about market size and things like that with the Pelicans specifically is you. You're the risk of losing fan interest because of something like this though. It's not like the city of Philadelphia where you have you know a much. Larger pool pulled draw from a long rich tradition of basketball. You know going way back to the early fifties you're talking about you're talking about a Pelicans franchise that is relatively brand new in the in the you know the grand scheme of the NBA and to not have a guy like this out there to not not give him to not give the fans at least an opportunity to see him is is a really really difficult decision for me to watch them make. I mean it's not like like they're dropping ticket prices because he's not out there. You know what I mean. Those season tickets that skyrocketed remember all the stories in the videos of the ticket. Team going crazy when when they landed the number one pick those ticket. Prices are staying the same in you risk a lot when it comes to renewals and things like that from from a business standpoint by not having the sky play. I understand that the season's essentially over but how many games his rookie Zion Williamson really going to win this team. This team has contracts as constructed. It is not very good. They have pieces they definitely do. I mean drew's obviously a perennial. All Star at this. Point is one of the best young point guard gets. He's not young anymore. It's twenty nine. But he still a very very very good player in this league. And you outside of that I mean you do like you said you you have. Jj whatever derrick favors again. Nothing Great Brandon. Ingram is easily the best player on the team currently I mean the questions going to become as what do fans have to watch. What this team? If it's not Si- On pill you get Zion over the next. At least four. Three seasons you get a healthy sign you talk about fan interest waning and you know temporarily that may be the case but who cares hairs because the very second that guy steps onto the court it all goes away and that's all anybody who's GonNa WanNa talk about again and this team is going to be a lot more interesting thing if Anthony Edwards playing playing shooting guard instead of Josh Heart or JJ radic or somebody like that and then you genuinely have that young core for you know. A wise men might be weird fit just because they draft Jackson. Hey so high last year but a guy like Edwards gives you a potentially you. It's really interesting. Young trio of of Edwards Zaylon and Brandon Ingram. And then. Then you're onto something then you're not just a team that's interesting to watch because it was I on your team that potentially if everyone matures correctly becomes the team to reckon within the NBA. And what why would you risk you. We I think the only way the fan interest goes away is if you put this guy back on the court. He's exciting for game and a half then he lands wrong. Re Fractures chooses foot. And we're back to square one. That's how you lose fan excitement. Sure but what are the question becomes as he's two hundred eighty five pounds. I think the odds yet. But it's not GonNa Change. It's GonNa Change from this year to next year. It's not like all of a sudden ions going to become a felt to forty like if anything he's GonNa continue to grow into his body and potentially get bigger. I mean we're talking about a twenty year old kid right here. I mean you watch guys transform as they enter into the NBA. A and what their bodies become. Let's talk about a guy like Joel embiid. For example you know they come into the league. They add that wait they get bigger. I don't see Zion on shrinking anytime soon. So you're talking about worrying about something that can happen at any point. It's this is the same reason why I disagreed. Continuously with the sixers and what they did did with managing the injuries of Ben Simmons and managing the injuries of Jalil Okeafor nerlens. Noel and I guess Jalil wasn't injured but nerlens was an and even Joel embiid like we did this thing where we baby them and did for what exactly. Well I would argue. NCUA the Ben Simmons thing and I will believe this to my. My last breath was not the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers decision but rather the decision of his management management and Ben Simmons because I think they care about marketing and they wanted him to be able to be rookie of the year out. It's also because he didn't shoot three pointers and he doesn't shoot and he's not a shooter in what are you talking. What are you talking about? He's I think he's too for three but either way. Well he's I think he's actually two for five on real threes real threes real threes. I just wish he's the best shooter. Benson's will not have perfectly fine. You're incorrect but I mean let's think about the teams in New Orleans around. I mean they're in the much tougher western conference. I don't think Zion brings them anywhere near getting outside of that bottom autumn five or bottom six you know world in when it comes to the draft lottery. I just don't the team's not good enough to go in night in night out and beat teams. They're not going to be better. They're just they're just not. It's just it's not going to hurt their draft stock as much and getting this guy out there and letting their fans and see what the future holds. I think carries more weight I don't agree with that. I think this is you tank and you worry about it next this year. Are you at all surprised you. I mentioned the the Plus Twenty five thousand Pravada but are you at all surprised to learn that to win the championship. That plus plus twenty five thousand goes for both the PELICANS and the Memphis. Oh sorry the Memphis..
"buffalo bills" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"They're getting up front because anytime a team named trades a player all the guaranteed money left on his contract get pushed onto their salary cap for that year and that is just not something that a lot of teams can handle. Oh nor should they have to because you know a twenty three year. Old Safety is impatient with the progression of the team. We've never seen guys you know and I know make Patrick didn't come out and demand a trade. He was sort of the a byproduct of tanking dolphins team but we've never seen guys like fitzpatrick or Jomo Adams asking for trades before Sh- MOLYNEUX's twenty three. It's the second year in the NFL. He's probably the second best a strong safety and football how about being part of turning an organization around rather than being impatient and just demanding a move right now well well. I think the biggest issue there is guys go to these franchises that are perennial losers and but it never happened before yeah yeah no. I I agree and I think that's just the age of society in general and and the way everything sort of instant gratification if that makes sense it's a weird larger level when it comes to being an NFL team and trying to win and be successful. It's weird weird to say instant gratification during during a sporting thing but that that is that is certainly sort of what it feels like these guys don't WanNa waste their time playing on a team that might struggle for two years for the next four years of success as long as the Front Office does everything somewhat correctly and they have a competent head coach. It's it's an interesting. It's an interesting new wrinkle sort of in the NFL. I mean you know in the case of Jalen Ramsey. I mean he's not not necessarily a young guys been a league for several several years now but the conflict with the coach and it's a kick me out of here like immediately immediately and in Jamal Adams case. I don't know how real those rumors are. I've read other things where he tweeted out that he never followed the jets. that's not a story. Yada Yada Yada who knows what's true and who knows what isn't I wasn't checking his you know who he was following five days ago before well. That's a new right obviously when it comes to the dolphins I mean the dolphins aren't embarrassment you. WanNa talk about the NBA taking the the sixers over essentially using the Colangelo as their pawns. I mean I would I could see goodell. Having somebody take this dolphins franchise over almost immediately really I mean to lose to lose his prolifically as they have been losing in the first two weeks of the season I it. It's almost unsafe unsafe. You feel bad for these guys that are out there putting their health on the line and putting their bodies on the line to just get absolutely pummeled now granted the Patriots are the best team in the League or at least if they're not number one there one B yeah it's so there's a little little bit the temporary it a little bit but if they come out this week and they get wacked again at by the cowboys I mean how could you even consider Peter. You know wanting to go out there and play for the dolphins. Okay two things one. Did you see the incredible tweet Buys Avian Howard of the dolphins who tweeted out a Gif of one of the final scenes from the fresh prince of bel-air where will is walking around the house an empty house by himself just perfectly used by Howard and two you mentioned the Patriots and the and the cowboys and I mean this is sort of not a relevant to this conversation but interesting nonetheless. We talked about these lines last week. Both the Patriots and the cowboys are twenty one and a half plus US point favorites in their games. We Prada I mean I've watched so much. NFL In my life and in the last ten years from from different things watching lines and looking at them and listening to people talk about lines. I can't remember a time where there was one twenty point favorite favorite in the NFL. Let alone two in the same week. It's unheard of it's it's scary how quickly footballs becoming baseball with the haves and the half knots and I would probably take both of those favorites in that situation. which is the part? I I picked the so yeah I picked the the Patriots to win thirty eight to six over over the jets this week so covering and then some like it's it's amazing that in in the NFL that a team can NBA three touchdowns better than three touchdowns worse than ever routine that they play like. It's GonNa be interesting to see the dolphins oftens. Obviously I know we talked last week and they don't get the Patriots again until the end of the season but I mean some of these teams that they're going to end up having to play. I mean they're gonNA play the chargers after the cowboys the tar the chargers are no slouches. I mean oh they may not. They may have blown that game because of a kicker issue over the weekend again to to the lions but they're not gonna be that. What's the line going to be when the equals go to Miami Eagles. have anyone healthy that go. That's also a very fair your point injury injury after injury after injury for that team. I've never seen an NFL team cancel a practice like the Eagles did today uh-huh couple other teams actually follow suit this week so just just wild wild stuff this is why the NFL's the best. There's just so much going on. I was we Sunday. We were on our way back from from a weekend down. The shore and we went to the phillies game for about three innings. Watch the guy hit a grand slam high five the philly fanatic and watched a guy in the other team hit a grand slam because that's what I do when I'm GonNa Phillies Games. I watched the other team consistently hit. Grand Slams slams against us. It's the third one of this year awesome but ty five the fanatic home was watching red zone and the insanity of the red zone channel with you know about a quarter and a half left in each gain to quarter left in each game of the one o'clock sleet. Was it just it was crazy. No matter what game you're looking at every game was pretty much competitive outside of that patriots game. Everything else was and I guess for for the most part the forty niners bengals game was wrapped up but all those those other games that were going on at that time. Were just like crazy storylines if you're into fantasy if you're into gambling any any of that stuff it's why the NFL is the absolute. King of all sports what talking about the eagles injuries real quick. I thought it was super fascinating thing when Aguilar went down briefly because that left the team with two healthy wide receivers in one healthy tight end basically forced stup- lay certain formations for the rest of the game just because they didn't have anyone else healthy got. It got hurt early. Jackson Jeffrey got hurt early and then Aguilar got hurt briefly briefly during the middle of the game it left the team with Zakar. It's Mac Hololens and jr are theta whiteside as the only healthy players on the scope positions on office so boy I it's kind of incredible that game turned out to be as good as it wasn't as close as it was given that situation somebody signed Jordan Mathews Mike God but no not what why are we waiting on that. I'm shocked. That hasn't hasn't happened alright. It's it's crazy. I mean all reports indicate that these guys at least Alshon and to Sean are going to be out at least multiple weeks six one at least three weeks like we gotta get somebody in here. What are you going to call up Greg Ward from the practice squad. I don't know I don't know what the move is here. I I think we have to get a guy that at least those the offense has comfortably with Carson. It's almost like the perfect fit like when he came in last year. Obviously before Carson eventually went down in Matthews was a go-to guy a certain point which is a scary prospect and by the way he still also have to call up Greg Ward from the practice squad to get to get your five healthy wide receiver could point well. Maybe maybe our Fagel whiteside love a breakout game. I I think judy take does Aguilar draft up Hess. How does he drop that makes up for it later in the game yet but that doesn't the happened if he catches it the first time like what are the infuriating game also a quick question yeah. Whose fault is it that it doesn't get to the sticks. Is it on or is it on It's yes is my answer. It's probably Liane both of them. j.j I mean Zach has to clear the sticks knowing that that's a fourth a must complete fourth-down. Carson can't make the throw if it's not a first down so I think they both bear some of the blame. Butts just really unfortunate situation and I know this stuff is happening split-second. You have to make the read right away that open. You should throw it but they both bear a little bit of the blame in my mind. What do you think that was. GonNa blame hurts more than Carson only because Carson was getting pressured for majority of the game and just getting absolutely murdered like erz tasked to get their ages has to also yeah hopefully hopefully we sell Carson shake off the rust and become Carson hold a little bit in the second half. Did I mean that that play where he threw the ball on his way down down right before his knee touched to Mac Holland's Ed just incredible like Carson Carson showed up in the first half of that Falcons game but the second half he looked like the guy who showed up in the second half of the game against the redskins got to figure out how to play in the first quarter and firsthand on offense because how where do you about this penn state running back years. I'm not worried because I knew he stunk and never had faith in him because he stunk at Penn state and he stinks for the Eagles is stink at look at his numbers. The Guy had one good game against the team that actually mattered it every other every other game name that Brealey matter when it came to the big boys and he was playing the teams like Michigan and Ohio State and Michigan State and Wisconsin those games that matter the guy did not produce when he needed to do but he could run it up against Pitt whoopy-doo like I it's it's I I am so over the people that Love Mile Sanders from the second we drafted. Am I was out. I knew this was going to be the case. I just knew it's hard for me to tell how exactly you feel about Mile Sanders. I've been I've been on this. I've been on this train since day. One it's funny. I have a cousin who went to temple loves to give me crap about Penn State football and that one time in the last seventy seventy five match ups that they beat him. They beat us..

"Marcus wasn't having any of that as someone who was born and raised in Buffalo. I was drawn to his commentary from that. I've come to learn about all the amazing things Marcus doing so. It's an honor to chat with Marcus on this podcast. Let's not wait any longer and welcome. Marcus Sullivan both fascinating to me is I love twitter and I've I've heard you on some podcasts or on a podcast recently and you were talking about how you like twitter and there was a comment recently in it's funny is I don't even know what the original person was talking about but it was something about comparing. He never said Siberia but it was like when you do something like that in the N._F._l.. And it was something bad or not listening to direction or not playing well you end up in buffalo like they're comparing buffalo to Siberia not exactly but in a way like that's where people go to like when your career is over and you immediately hopped in their inside why actually enjoyed my time in buffalo new talk about the organization what they did for you and flying you to your grandmother's funeral I believe and what's been amazing to me is you've now been featured. Actually in other places is on buffalo bills blogs podcasts on this podcast not kind of as a result of that interaction that you had that individual person because it's just you put yourself out there and you believed in something and you're willing to share that story with other people because I think people in Buffalo and it's not just buffalo it happens in a lot of cities Detroit and you name it but people are sick and tired of that and then it's like well. Let's hear from the people that actually know in that are willing to put themselves out there to stand up for what they believe in so so anyway. I just think it's fascinating that social media gives us that opportunity but tell me a little bit about where you've come from as far as now you're part. You're part of twitter. You're doing all this and you see someone talking about something that they just don't know anything about Oh. Yeah I appreciate that <hes> so I guess let me start by saying <hes> I grew up a buffalo bills fan so <hes> I was my probably twelve thirteen eleven twelve thirteen when the bills start making those super bowl runs and I'm from Chicago so obviously we're bears town but <hes> you know after the eighty five bears kinda fizzled out you know they they kinda went into a slump. You know so <hes> and around ten eleven twelve years old I really start kind of understanding the game football you know because I didn't play when I was younger. <hes> you know they had a you know weight limits back them and I didn't meet any of them but <hes> you know that's where my love Buffalo Kinda started you know I was a huge fan of all those super bowl teams and you know this is when <hes> Super techmo bowl is out in buffalo bills or priorities. We believe the best team the game so you know that's kind of where you know my whole love of the city and the <hes> you know the organization came from and then Lo and behold I get drafted a buffalo in two thousand one you know so and the crazy thing about about it was. I never thought I'd be draft about Buffalo. They called me. I thought I was going to Jacksonville and the first or second round but that didn't happen <hes> so I felt a fifth round and Greg Williams gives me a call today. We're GONNA take fifth. Pick you know fifth <hes> round draft pick and you know I was <hes> you know laid it but yet kind of disappointed that my draft status went down so low but it took a day think about it then you know I'm a firm believer in stings happen for a reason you know your life's already predetermined so you know my love of Buffalo's youth you know Kinda came to fruition when I got played for the team and I really started become humble humble myself and <hes> you know. I'll just say hey man. This is God's plan right now. You know this is where you know you. This is where your life is taking you to this point. You know I'm not certainly not saying like you know <hes> you know. God predetermine football player 'cause I can go on about that forever. You know just as far as <hes> your importance as a human being anyway. Let me get enough <hes> target but <hes> yeah I mean so I'll get opportunity to play for the bills and <hes> you know spent three and a half years there and <hes> almost IOS four years and <hes> you know they treated me. Well you know for the most part and you know. I feel that you know any plant would feel that he you know continued should be continuing playing starting when they get that opportunity but you know I i. I feel I'm blessed. I got opportunity to play for Buffalo. I think it's a great organization and the People Buffalo in the town really what got me you know I saw so much potential an opportunity in Buffalo. <hes> you know at the time I was one of three players that live downtown in buffalo lived <hes> right rip walk area right by harbour there and <hes> you know. I said this has got a lot of potential. You know me coming from a big city in Chicago. You know I saw the <hes> you know the evolution ocean of town the emergence of the town you know 'cause downtown Chicago was <hes> was dumped as well back in the you know the eighties late seventies and eighties you know so <hes> you know it was I was not the place to have businesses what I'm trying to say but you know we've got a <hes> revitalize and the early nineties and you know now. It's it's it's. It's one of the best cities in the world so I kinda saw that in Buffalo. You know it's <hes> you know it's a town right on freshwater. <hes> you know it's old. <hes> you know <hes> Rust Belt Town but you know there's a lot of potential here you know Toronto's on the island fifteen minutes away so you know if you have to go to major city you know you can get there fairly easy. If you really WANNA go in New York <hes> our plane right away and <hes> you know people buffalo really treating me well and I never had any issues anybody you know when I was recognized you know people always said good things. Even you don't have to some tough losses so they'll always remember that you know just I just felt <hes> you know a great opportunity to be able to play <hes> you know for the team in the organization yeah. It's it's it's I think it is almost a mid western town. It's closer to Cleveland than it is New York City so it has that mid western Western feel and I've always felt like buffalo is a very small version and even though Buffalo's not a small city right. It's not a huge city Chicago but it's a smaller city of like Chicago because it has the sports vibe. It's let's call it a drinking town own and they love their bills. I love their sabres. They love going out to bars. They let the Barksdale until four o'clock in the morning right in Buffalo and Chicago's got that feel they love their food. There's just there's something about it that I think is just it's a lot of fun. It's vibrant place when you're there or if you go to the right places and like you said before you said it a couple times you said the people they're the people treated you well now. Every city's got issues right. There's all sorts of there's definitely be problems you to run to the wrong crowd around people but into Buffalo. They AH that they're just they're passionate right. It's a passionate group. That's why they get defensive on social media. They get defensive. They talk about things. There's no doubt there's issues with buffalo me and I could you mentioned the waterfront like you could go back years. We could talk about will the mistakes that the city ready made the city council made over the years or someone made mistakes of you know they put the university not in the city. They don't build the stadiums. Perhaps on the water. They don't build you know the river walk or the water walk they could have had in buffalo but those are mistakes and they've changed it and revitalize it and it's growing and it's incredible place in the weather is what the weather is. Some people like it like that. You know there's a lot of outdoor activities you could do people love hockey in Buffalo. You can play outdoors indoors and one of the things we used to do growing up as play street hockey. Even if you didn't play ice hockey you anybody could to grab a stick and play street hockey and that's fun so you know it's it is the people and it's always fascinating to me. When someone comes from out of buffer like you come from Chicago you get drafted to Buffalo? You have no choice but to go to buffalo and embrace the city live in downtown be a part of the culture and show up and then show up at the time so Ralph Ellison Stadium now new era field and it's almost probably like you're backing college plane in these college atmospheres because I've been doing numerous. I've been numerous. Stadiums have been some college stadiums as well and it's almost like you can't describe the atmosphere for Buffalo Bills Home Game. Did you feel that as a player. Did you feel that coming into the stadium on Game Day. Yeah I kind of thinking taken for granted. <hes> you know when you're there air you know I it's it's Kinda normal you know but when you retire now and get opportunity to go to <hes> different cities and experience the college games and some pro games you know you really look back in buffalo me like they really did and stuff big there. You know so these other places and it's you know let's not is nearly it gets extravagant that you'll find at the <hes> you know won't bills drive but <hes> yeah man it's <hes> it's a special place you know and you know there's always room for growth anywhere you go but you know I was back there last year recently and man just to see <hes> you know how the city's changed since I've been there I can just imagine the next fifteen to twenty years. That's it yeah the the new ownership right Vilson was the owner now. It's the pool of family that owns the bills and changes our they made the playoffs you know whether they got it. Is You know it was interesting. How that happened? It didn't have the the great season but they slipped in there at the end and accounts right so that made the plus it's had been seventeen years. which is Kinda crazy and you know there's a new vibe about the bills right now and we'll we'll see where that goes? It's been tough as a bills fan because you're always hoping for good things but I don't put it. I never put it on the players right. I think management can make decisions they can whether it's drafting wrong or changing the coaches every few years or not finding as we all know you not finding the quarterback of the future and they had Jim Kelly like you said for all all those years. They had this incredible core but those different air the N._F._l.. Free Agency had it really hit the bills yet. They kept their <unk> together for all those years now. It's like you can't have all those players on the same team for all those years because one player's GonNa want something more and they have the right to do that to become a free agent and next thing you know they're not on the team anymore Andre Reid or Thurman Thomas Probably they couldn't all stay together right so things over the so. Let's see what happens now but do you do you follow the bills. I'm sure he's still follow the N._F._l.. Football and we're going to get into your involvement with sports and use sports and all that but do you still the N._F._l.. In the bills yeah do do the trouble looking. You know what's going on. You know trying to play transactions just to see what's going on with the community <hes> yeah absolutely still can you feel good about like the direction that they're going from. Someone who understands it and I think like offensive Lineman people that you really have a indepth knowledge that the average fan or even the more not the average fan would have about the game and kind of seeing the direction that they're going to you. Look at the bills with your experience in your your your expertise on the game. Let's say and you feel good about the direction. They're going yeah. I really do <hes>. Obviously it always starts with the Q._B.. Position it seems like Josh Allen as their guy after the future you know so I got an opportunity to see him. <hes> you know his his draft class of Q._B.'s and you know just watch me throw it. A kid got strong as arms. It's you'll ever see you know so. I just think he <hes> you know. <hes> hopefully doesn't have a sophomore slump and you know you got. God forbid that you know because the kid definitely has talent. You know that that there's no question you know so it starts there. I think they got a pretty solid core group of guys around the aboard especially defensively you know so an excellent job but bringing in some <hes> you know some some great draft picks at Oliver Junior. You know it's going to be tremendous tremendous play in this league. You know <hes> you know <hes> Aaron Aaron Donald. I believe you know so <hes> yeah. They got the pieces and Sean McDermott is the guy to you know. Put everything together. You know making sure that <hes> you know the talented they have is being utilized effectively so so they can win football games because obviously the Patriots are always going to be there. You know in Miami's <hes> you know emerging as well you know in the you know certainly can't count on the jets Dole. A._F._C. was always a you know to me one of those. You know the top three conferences in the N._F._l...

"I don't think this indicates that there is a problem necessarily. What I do think is this Lonzo ball looked really good. When Rondo wasn't on. The roster would Rondo was out on suspension. Now Rondos back in the wheels come off again for Lonzo. Like, that's the small part that I'm curious about. But it's gonna take a lot more than this before. I just say the Lakers, and this is kind of how the run gets going at least early on in the season. He is at times, very, passive aggressive. He is at times guy who fancies himself a teacher. And he also is a guy who understands he's a character in this reality TV show that he's invented. And that when he says stuff like this, which is a very viral friendly sound bite. He knows where it's going. Oh, it's going to be everywhere. And it's gonna put pressure on the young guys who is obviously very disappointed in to do the things that he wants them to do. Love him. Basically go at Bruce banner on it. Yeah. I'm going to turn green Ted is whole thing up. All right right off. Nice, quote, we will this special team. We'll see what they wanna do. But I think so. John Henry about whether his team will visit the White House. Low rez is manager. Alex core was critical of the president after the hurricane and Puerto Rico. Are you surprised to hear this? Well, I'm not surprised that the language here is a little bit of two. There has been some confusion as to whether he is talking about. Will we accept the invitation? Or will we be extended invitation and all of that beauty, of course, plays into the controversy that would follow because we know that the president only wants to invite people who want to see the president and Alex Cora Puerto Rico as you described is manager of the team, let alone with the other people on the team may think I feel like that would be an uncomfortable scenario. Well, what I find interesting about this is that it's a different animal when you talk about a baseball team going to the White House. Right. Like, you have all kinds of demographic questions that come with the basketball team your assumption is okay, they're not going to go with a football team. Kind of when I think of some of the guys will go. Maybe not everybody assuming they're extended invitation the difference. They'll be give when we talk about a baseball team is that we got a lot of people from countries that have been in the crosshairs of a lot of the political rhetoric that has come from the president. Yeah. This is compounded in this case, by the fact that the owner of the team owns a newspaper so much going on here it as much as people wanna play the, hey, stick sports thing about this. It has become impossible to do that with the White House. Visit I really do believe that this presidency is probably going to spell the end of sports teams going to the White House just because it becomes more trouble than it's worth the teams themselves. I agree. And this is one of those controversies that could just be avoided. And because it is a ceremony we must now consider what are all of the real the real world ways in which people's lives actually are impacted by news events that are ongoing as we speak. But it's also the complicating factor of what everything is that ties into this right because oh forget this. I mean, it's not as though Trump one massachu-. That's right. I mean, I'm pretty sure the every county in the state witted the other direction there is not like this is his base. But just the specter happens when they name comes up is so big I would have been like, we're not going. Just just busy. Yeah. That'd be nice. Instead of the guy who went on and said, I love the guy that reliever last. We are aware of the situation and are in contact with Kyle. Giants official about the arrest of Kyle letter this morning on his way to practice. According to Mike folow, quote police source says he hit the gas ignored orders to stop almost hit the cop and another car cut off other cars, and then refused to put his window down or step out of the vehicle, and quote, Bo what do you make of this?

"Just your number one, though angle work next night names talking about Gumri yesterday governor playing why he didn't call fair catch the cruiser kickoff fraternity fumble Sunday and complain. He didn't know what his role was on the offense today. The Packers traded to the ravens for a twenty twenty seventh round pick bobbly feel bapti. I was going to say that time on Gumri may have preferred getting cut at this point because in this circumstance. He does go to new. Team, but he didn't necessarily get to choose his own destiny. But what is clear is that Aaron Rodgers didn't wanna spend a lot of time around time on Gumri going forward. I don't think Aaron Rodgers somebody who was nearly as forgiving two-time time on Gumri despite tongue coming out and explaining hey, I wanted to take this ball out of the end zone because I wasn't sure if that would be something that would even dangerous, maybe I would have been caught between a rock and a hard place. So this says to me that the Packers just didn't want him around. Yeah. No. They gave him away. Right. There's no other way to put that trade seventh round pick. But a seven round pick not in the next ramp of the draft added to that. Right. And his explanation for why he ran it out. Did not really hold water founded telling mcgovern's, I looked now you guys considering cancer and everything else. And I think that's because of the way the word tantrum was used the initial report, which colored the way that we looked at all of this. But he's got a good news bad news situation on this. With the good news is he is on a better teeth. The more ravens had the third highest point differential in the NFL. So far, they heavy. Great defense. They ever research. Joe flacco, the bad news is still Joe flacco, and he's not Erin rocks. Right. So maybe they have a clear idea, but they wanna do for him. They seem to be looking for a guy that can do that hybrid running back wide receiver rope. Maybe this works for him. But if you liked playing with the best quarterback, maybe that we've ever seen. You're not going to play with Joe flacco Nolan time on Gumri when he gave when he came out and gave his explanation like he'd been to convince you and me, although we did call for him to lose his job yesterday. He needed to convince the coaches around the league and your point around whether the videotape backs up time on Gumri explanation is a good one. Like, if you're special teams coach you buy timeout Gumri was saying the think the ravens going to hand him the other let him take kicks in the way that he did in Green Bay. I feel like that might be behind him in terms of his professional resumes at us like to make the point that he had the right idea when he's saying look these cats in the locker room with these quotes now one of them say anything to me, they say something to me, and he was probably getting geared up. Like, man, I'm a go. What makes people? Visa stuff and he walked in. And they were like, hey, you got your play. So about Judah new PA nominees. Let me get that play by right here. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Cool. All right are waiting on you coming up next broad. Jay's running out of patience was that. Look like. Speaking of people not having teammates. Mr Tony in the house. High noon is brought to you by Duracell. Trust is power. While thing about the bills quarterback situation. Josh Allen is going to eventually come back in like are they happy about that? Is they're gonna make anything better. I feel like the fact that he is not the Peterman is such a great benefit his future. Even though Josh Allen. Even though he's exactly what everybody said. He would I quote. You probably don't wanna be around. When my patients runs out. I'm serious. Lebron James after losing to Minnesota and a game where he walked off the court before the final buzzer went off. Let's listen to the lebrons after the game. This whole year is that patients run out.

"So I've got thoughts on this number one. If you have a good job and Lincoln Riley has a good job. Why would you want you go take a bad job? If you have a job you consistently have better players than the other team. Why would you take a job or youth consistently? Had better players than the other teams had and on top of this. When's the last time the Browns hired a coach that anybody else wanted Lincoln Riley is the hot name you keep hearing about this. If you're the hot name, why the hell would you set all co Cleveland? Well, that's that's the reality of Lincoln Riley, indie modern NFL Lincoln Riley, a story by Kevin Clark for the ringer months ago. He watched the Super Bowl and saw essentially two big twelve style. Offenses in the patriots and eagles. This is the man who now sits stride, the big twelve. So theoretically should have many options for better options. But there is the money, right? Like, if you're Lincoln Riley, you're gonna get more money from Oklahoma. But isn't there some big NFL deal at the Browns? Get throwing him. Maybe he makes four million dollars a year right now if he were to figure out how to get like a national championship at Oklahoma dabble Swinney makes nine million dollars a year at Clemson. And I think a guy like dabble makes more sense to make that move to the NFL Lincoln Riley, the argument, giggle, taking Lincoln Riley is scheme the job of being an NF. NFL head coach is not about scheme. If you would ask somebody's Daboh. What is his office defensive Las iffy? You don't know that he runs the thing. It's about being in charge in organizing the person look to asking a lot of thirty five year old could Riley to do that in the NFL. Right. Davos because people on the cheek I don't know Lincoln Riley motivational techniques are just yet. The next name is played Thompson Thompson broke the single game record for three pointers last night by hitting fourteen of them. Bo. Meanwhile, the warriors put up ninety two points in the first half against the bull. So should we be treating clay breaking record as big deal? I mean, the records on three pointers are all they're all new, basically. Right. It's like guys break Pratt passing records. Now guess chain way is gone into a different place that being said this is another time that you got Klay Thompson doing something like putting up fifty sixty points into third quarter. He is the third option sent from the heavens. I don't mean that to shade him. But he's not a guy that you're going to run your off. Vince through. But there is no other third option that can just in the flow of the game. Get your fifty and three quarters that ever seen. No, we should be treating this as a big deal because it reveals the eagle of Klay Thompson Klay Thompson after this game compared himself to rip Hamilton Reggie Miller. Klay. Thompson may be the second greatest shooter of all time. He has a certain sense of self that makes it really easy to alongside superstars with the person. Who I think makes us an even bigger deal? Bo is Steph curry Steph curry had a streak here. Five game double digit threes. And he had the record that Klay Thompson broke he shot four threes all game. All he wanted to do rebound and feed his friend, and that is unselfishness from the greatest shooter of all time, which I think is pretty notable down care about that. They will be no other chance Steph curry to put up that many threes into game. That's cute. It's cool. What's some other stars may not be as? No need for us to say these guys just to give these credit, right? Like, I get it. Good for them. Right. That is the way this concerts. The only thing I find interesting about the comparison to Reggie Miller and rip Hamilton lease. Nobody's ever asking clay Thomas. Big fella. Carry is home. Right. Like, I think he's a better shooter than Reggie Miller. You probably make an argument he is a better by greater than Reggie Miller. But what makes clay interesting is? There's never going to be attacked that you're gonna ask tops to do. Save ridge ability to Madison Square Garden, right? And that is why every team on this planet would love to have that dude and his roster somewhere..

"Dues moving into trains. We are live at the trade deadline, and Dante Fowler seems to be indicating that. Not your season Jacksonville Jaguars. One thing for him at this point. What have? Rails. No. He's from Florida late upgrade, I was cared razzle. What if it's absolutely? Then there's golden Tate and by the way to draw lines. You're not blend for much of the season. What gave out of I we're already sending dudes out. Now your needs -gratulations first name today. The patriots. The patriots beat down the bills last night twenty five six it was their fifth straight win. Now they've scored the second most point in the NFL only behind the chiefs. How impressed there you with the rolling England offense and Tom Brady kind of feel like we're blade elevated, dirty pool as you. How impressed are you by just beat the Buffalo Bills? And by way, by the way team that through three quarters having a difficult time dialing office, and it took him all the way to the fourth to get to that place. Derek Addison, does dare Gaddis thing those touchdown pass to people in other colored jerseys. Right. But the office typically has been very good. They look really thin though down to the poor record L Patterson is player running back, and if he could play running back somebody would have had to play red bag before because they never loved him as a wide receiver. Yes, sony. Michelle was heard about half of the right side of that offensive line. Wizard and the good news for the patriots. Is that the bills defense is actually pretty good? They were entering this week six defensive Devia way. They are now fourth in terms of yards allowed all that's good news. The bad news. Of course, is that the bills offense is the worst in the history of Devia way. Vo they were essentially is Instagram filter making anybody who plays them look a lot better than they are in reality. So guess who's back? The Peterman is of course, back got his helmet. He got in there. After Derek Anderson suffered this injury home. Do they got a couple of quarterbacks? The last thing they feel like doing play out even dare Gaddis. It is hurt right there. He's just like going back at Peterman is like, well, I'm not going back in and then the bills would aside real prior to play wide receiver, and it is legitimately fair to ask if he is the best quarterback on their roster. That's not high. Personally, we have a full blown quarterback controversy now in buffalo because the Peterman had two completions. He was two for two. And this man the Peterman who is the legend walking among us. He is the last guy responsible for a touchdown pass. But buffalo October four competition just showed up, that's unite here, Terrell. I'm saying this. I have seen dro- prior play quarterback in the NFL. I have seen the Peterman quarterback Terrell prime better quarterback in the Peterman and Terrell Pryor is wide receiver now. Yes, let alone Ohio State, let alone Terrell Pryor when he was actually a real quarterback. You'll should be better. I also think friars there to be motivation for Josh Allen. 'cause in cases quarterback thing doesn't work out, maybe guessing passes. The Browns after fire and Hugh Jackson and offense coordinator Todd Haley, everyone seems to be point to beg Mayfield. Calms coach at Oklahoma. Thirty five Lincoln Riley, isn't ideal new coat Pablo if you're in Lincoln Riley position with the Browns job intrigue. You would I want to move into a haunted mansion is how I approach question from Lincoln Riley perspective because there are many things about moving up to the NFL and having you know, what was the furniture that? I remember all Baker Mayfield. Do renovated defense all of these things are good. And that's a nice property. But all of the people who moved in before me seem to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. And so if I'm Lincoln Riley, and I see the NFL trending collegiately in terms of offense in terms of scheme. I am probably waiting for less haunted mansion come around..
"buffalo bills" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"Podcast today, sleepers values. We also had the opportunity to talk to star Pro Bowl, tight end Kyle Rudolph will share that interview with you. At the end of the show, we asked him specifically what player is kind of flying into the radar for fantasy owners on that Minneapolis offense. So that will be that'll be fun. And what else do we got going on? We're gonna. We're gonna get into some of the reaction to week three of the preseason. We'll do that a little bit today and we'll give you some preseason week, three lessons tomorrow. Some conclusions we've made from notching games. The the preseason is over no starters, unless it's punishment or otherwise are looking to get traded or something play in week, four like rice freighter. There's one. There's one. Week, four, four. Yeah. I Amir Abdul is going to get a ton of work. I hear, which is he's going to get cut last work. He gets as a lion. I think he's going to be cut. He might, but we'll get into that on tomorrow's show. Today's all about a sleeper and value pick each of us will will bring one to you. These are guys that maybe we don't perfectly agree on with one another. These are not the same as the consensus sleepers in value picks that we have in the ultimate draft get, but we'll share own sleepers and values on the show today. I'm excited about these, but let's start with a quick question. What week three performance left. You scared and what left you scared because we spend the offseason talking about players, and then it's kind of like all is revealed in some respects in the preseason. You get to see. The truth about certain situations, especially in preseason week three, when starters get the opportunity to play together for an extended period of time. So Mike, what left you the most scared in week? Three. I got shook. Digital got shook by earthquake test. With my threatening you could or whatever the bills, the bills shook me to the core. They are going to be so bad, holy crap, the Buffalo Bills have me trembling, and this is mostly a call for Louis Shawn McCoy who's dealing with a sore groin. That's not. This is not what I wanna hear about shady McCoy at at this point of the fantasy football season because all he has this year. Yes, he is slippery. He is the slippery fish. So he has that gone, but all he has his volume and if his body is not ready to hold up to volume is going to be a really long disappointing fantasy football season from shady McCoy. Josh Allen had a bad start off. He was running for his life. I mean, he's just I've sacks in the first quarter. As far as I know the play calls were snap, the Josh Allen, and then he runs a diagonal towards the back right corner. We the field. I mean he was running for his life. We've highlighted and specifically Jason Moore has highlighted the Buffalo Bills offense of line decimation over the off season, and you just you're never really sure, Kim, they recover from losing all those starters so far, the answer is a resounding. No, yeah, it didn't. It did not look good and week. Three that's for sure. I'm not convinced that Josh Allen will start after peterman's performance in that game versus Allen's, which and Peterman may be the one that gets to be beat up. I I in. Okay. Let's say Peterman is the starter I'm still shook. Yeah, because that's just turnovers that are going to happen, and then they're going to have to throw the ball. It's going to be garbage time fiesta. You got scared. I, I was ultimately scared by the colts offensive line perform. Silence. Andrew luck is good..
