"Turn it. Hand called his time inside. The ten inside the five touchdown seahawks back. It's up five. Doesn't matter alex collins is gonna punch it in for you anyway. Steve ray will. Kiro with the call outs. Columns ran for eight yards on a yard score. Russell wilson threw two fourth quarter. Touchdown passes the tyler lockett the seahawks rally twenty six twenty three win over the niners They end twelve and four. The seahawks four game winning streak But they are locked in at the number three seed. because of the saints packers winning the seahawks will host the rival rams in the wildcard round next week and mark. How good you feel about the seahawks. After today's game i would. I'm concerned about their offense. It's almost like a flip inverse relation to where they were earlier in the year. Where the offense was we watched it through the air. We had russell wilson pegged as a potential mvp because of how they were allowing him to play and how decay metcalf antilock. We're playing and the defense was all the concern. I mean lock it today. Set a seattle seahawks record for receptions in a season decay metcalf set a franchise record for yardage in a season but a lot of that has to do with the compiled numbers from earlier on this team. At one hundred and nine yards the start of the fourth quarter. They couldn't run the ball and it took a very typical seahawks. Finish the tyler lockett touchdowns and the alex collins dash for a score. I mean they came up late in a game where i would put this a little bit into divisional game against cal shanahan. Who robert sala. Who thought again. It's been weeks in a row. Coaching lights out. I'll made things real tough for seattle seattle things tough for the niners in the opposite way just sort of a typical nfc west beatdown and this niners team. They keep flashing to the box up in the sky where like star players not in the game. I mean they're doing with nobody and seattle. They work themselves out of a funk to some degree. do i trust them
Browns Dismiss GM John Dorsey Days After Firing Head Coach Freddie Kitchens
"Let's get to it Sadly adly mark we gotta start with the browns. How did we get back here? We're back we're back to the bounds being the browns. They have fired yet. Another general manager her Cleveland parted ways with John Dorsey. After two years on the helm the team announced made that move official after it was reported in multiple places. The decision to move on from Dorsey comes just two days after the Brian Brown's fired head coach Freddie Kitchens at the conclusion of the regular season Dorsey had a meeting with. Jimmy has them the team owner earlier. Tuesday the two sides according to Tom Palacio We're talking about possible. Structural changes that would curb Dorsey authorities GM but when the two sides can come to an agreement it was over mark Feels like Cleveland. Even though the better roster is back to square one in terms of dysfunction and just in general question marks about the present and the future and I can't and even begin to understand how you must feel the frustration of well. I'm of two minds because the first is they're just more proof that the browns the constant mode is sort of developing farce. I mean whatever whenever you think that they've turned a corner. They're actually just going in a circle back to where they were before for. And there are a lot of disturbing reports and whispers coming out of Cleveland that the ownership and we know this is not not shocking. Can you think about it. But the but they continue to be very impatient with all their decisions and the people they hire and so the question now and I think that the I've never seen the fan base this deflated because of where they were a year ago at this time. Or let's say seven months ago to now but because it just doesn't seem to matter to most people who they hire and it's too it's too de energizing using to get excited about fill in the blank coach and the from the other side though I will say this had they kept John Dorsey. It would've narrowed the candidate list of who was gonNA come and work with that next team by a lot so I think if you're going to keep doing this but do you agree with that. Dorsey wasn't the guy to be leading the charge. Because everyone seems it to be an agreement that he was a guy that came in the obviously inherited. Sasha's bountiful gifts and had some hits has mrs but had some big hits to me it all feels a little premature to take him out of the equation but this organization has done. There wasn't a straight firing right. They just say couldn't get different visions on how they saw the football operation going full hundred percent. I think they wanted to keep them and they talked about how much they liked him. But John Dorsey is probably very prideful and not going to take what is it what is when you're changing title it also demotion what else is it and the thing is he he. It's hit. It was his decision number one to go with Freddie Kitchens and they they ignored Paul does recommendations of Kevin Stefanski DEEPA. Desta also wanted. Sean McDermott in the past. So I think what they were saying. Was We kind of trust. Paul Podesta's voice in in this at this time around and that's not something that again. It's kitchens fall. It's a soup of Dursey for hiring kitchens more recently. Stunning fall though we were at the owners meetings and at that point John Dorsey was the toast of the NFL. I read them in the top five of my GM rankings. no-one no-one said Oh that's that's too high. I mean like it was very recent who is five. Oh who's right behind him. Thomas demetre was five. Kevin Colbert over three but It is amazing how much talent he acquired in a short time and he's gone but I think they've gotten it wrong so many times of not having the GM and the coach align that act. I do like I like I think that needs to be on the same page. Yes at every time. So I'm fine with it. It's deflating to the point of heartbreak for for Browns fans that last year at this time this job was seen as one of the most coveted in the league with a young talented nucleus. And you're finally going to bring the winter to Cleveland and now it's senior reading reading stories that executives say that's the one place I would not go and you're right back to where you were if some of these coaching tree scenarios were cal Shanahan and has a number of people interviewing with the browns. He was there he's he. He demanded his way out of the building. You got you know the bill. BELICHICK's of the world are going to be telling these guys be careful because yes. It's great for you to go on and get a head coaching job. But the DNA here is that you won't be there. Four hundred as has made it clear in his press conference Thursday that the coach would be part of hiring the GM which sounds weird. But I know that's fine but it means that the coaches ultimately the GM's boss Asif you get hyper and that's fine as long as it's defined ahead of time if that helps them get mcdaniels fancier whoever it is that they want in the door. That's fine it it just makes makes it clear that it's the coach. That's in charge and function and dysfunction always starts at the top and sports and since the has them's joined there on their fifth took over team. They're on their fifth coaching search and seven years and John Dorsey is the fifth different person or group heading up the football operation in that same seven seven year that has to be unprecedented. I mean there are at least just third that work in at least the third that only had one year really which is why

"They got that red zone monster that's going to be you know, that's gonna catch a fade in the end zone and maybe an important game. But if you're hoping for a contestant catch wide receiver. I think you're going to be disappointed in someone like heard because he's a really big wide receiver. But he plays smaller than he is. Is if you look at all of his contests catches relations, yet eighteen of them not a lot. And he has four catches on eighteen contested catch situations. Not only is it not as he saw frequently. But when he did see that situation. It wasn't something he excelled at. So that rate just to kind of put that into some context here in this draft class, the only player that that was better than love this that I love it is Hollywood Brown. Who is the smallest dude in this draft class is maybe favorite stat of the entire fucking draft. The fact that someone who is six five to twenty five has a contested catch rate that is on par with someone who was it was considered basically pint-sized who maybe not much bigger than I maybe needed a step stool to hug the Commissioner. Like, this is the kind of player that we're talking about. And yet he has a similar contested catch rate to someone that you might think to yourself do six five. And so this is one of the things that that I'm really kinda struggling within watching his. Game. So far I mean wash all of his targets last year. So this is all that he's got to offer as a receiver right now. One of the quotes Cal Shanahan had right immediately. After this pick happen when when him and Lynch, we're talking with breast was that they felt like they got the two most physical wide receivers in the draft in these two players. And I think with deebo you one hundred percent see that there's no way that you can turn on his tape and not see the physical element of his game. I don't know where it's coming from with her. I mean, this was a guy that I just again, consistently did not see the ability to to kind of shed tackles or anything after the catch with his physical illness. There. He wasn't doing it at the catch point in winning those tough catches. He wasn't even doing it..

"You're just getting over your feet too easily and getting. Ng completely washed out of the play. I'm not really washed out of the play. But the defenders it's gonna go right by him. And that reduced over the course of the year. And I think he did play quite a bit better as the year went on. And so if he's able to continue that trajectory, I think he's already very very good in the run game. And he allowed the Niners to be in x rays with their run, which I think is what what Cal Shanahan probably wanted out of a tackle. And it's one of the reasons that turn Brown is not here is because you could basically only run the outside zone to Staley side, and you couldn't necessarily do that to the other side when you had someone as big of a human is Trent Brown was. So I think that he does what the team wants them to is a great scheme fit and he plays a position of value. And I'm curious if just alias talked a little bit about, you know, kind of coming back for one more year on podcast and what happens if Staley doesn't come back after another year. Do you move him over to the left side? But even the fact that you can entertain that discussion with improves, I think his value. Yeah. I think you know, it wouldn't be an issue at all the move them to the left side. I think knowing NFL teams, I think still kind of place a little bit more of a premium on the left side than they do the right? They would probably move him over. I mean, it was left tackle in college. Right. That's where he played it Notre Dame. So yeah, I think he absolutely can move over there. Once Joe Sealy leaves. I think it just depends on whether that's the move to make it's going to depend on their situation at the time that Staley leaves, and who that other tackle is right? Who the other guy they get to bring in? If you bring in another guy that is far more comfortable at left tackle. Then I think you can plug that guy in the left Lee mcglinchey and the right you need to tackles like the the idea that the left is so much more important than the right side is just not accurate anymore. Like, there's plenty of really really good pass rushers that come on the left side of or get moved there. Yeah. They get moved there. You guys that move around. But I mean, some of the best pass rushers in the league Russia almost exclusively from the left side of the defense going up against that. Right. Tackle like this isn't again like the seventy eighties. NFL where you need the left tackle. Because that's where the dominant pass rusher is right because you're lining up in these same basic ask formations that puts the weak side over on the left against the left tackle like that's not how it works anymore. You need to good tackles. If you find another guy when Staley leaves it's better left Acklin is right tackle Vinnie? Leave mcglinchey where it is. So that's the that's the top tier? We've got to newcomers who've got to people who have been there before one person is still received the incomplete on the grading. I guess because it's hard to get graded when you don't have a knee. But that's that's to your one. So that's the core. And I think that when you when you look at the number of players in this in this tier overall you obviously want there to be more players here. But I think what's important is that the positions of the players that are in that tier the fact that the Niners have a quarterback in to your one is a good thing. The fact that they have a tackle in that here is a very good thing. The fact that they have a pass rusher with someone who have the passing game like deforest Buckner is. Good you want there, maybe to be an edge rusher there. But I think that having someone who affects pass game good. Ideally, you want a corner in this year. I was going to say I think the notable thing for what you're missing is on the defense said the right?.

"When they wanna mix in some of those backup tight ends to go with two tight end sets right now as you look around the league. I it's hard to see a player that is playing better than George killer. Who is just routinely making splash plays. Did you see that George kill judges like how how good he's playing by? How other type how many other elite tight ends are following him on Twitter. Like apparently after Sunday's game. Travis Kelsey started following him. And get it was like, oh, this is great. I've I've been following China's Kelsey for years. So now that he's following me. I know I'm doing well. I think there's a I can't remember who said that there's a quote from famous athlete, it may even in by athlete. I actually might be Dwayne the rock Johnson. But I think he says when he played football. He's an greatest you don't have to tell people how good you are they'll tell you. So I think George Kittles on the right track. There you know, now that he's making a little noise. People are starting to let him know how good he is. But just overall an impressive player that coming out of China in a scheme that just doesn't highlight. Particularly tight ends. But really out boundary. Skill players in any regard. The fact that the forty Niners were able to get him when they were when healthy he looks like an absolute stud for the next four or five years. No doubt. And I do think it's important to note the talent level but Cal Shanahan is working with because he has remolded and reform this roster and the players that he's doing this with our a third string quarterback that didn't get a visit an undrafted quarterback who didn't get invited at the combine a third round quarterback for the other half of the games that were well more than half. Again. We're talking about. Matt breed is an undrafted free agent. George kills a fifth round tight end. I mean, the wide receivers were effectively scrapheap wide receivers peer or someone was considered a bit over the hill. Markings Gooden was considered just the deep threat Richey James is another late round draft pick. I think he's a fifth rounder. Trent Taylor's fifth rounder. He's not doing this with like pedigree talent. And yet he's able to be in the upper third of the league and explicit plays. His. His offense of Devi away is beyond. I think what the talent would give him his PF f grades are really really good. And I think it's just because he's able to maximize what these players can do. But I think this is also where you see a little bit of the marriage of the scouting department. In addition to what Cal hen wants from these positions and wants from these players, you see a bit of that combination of able to shine through in the way that Shanahan's able to deploy these players. So I think you look at the offense of success any offensive success that we've had this season is really a testament to both Cal Shanahan and how Shanahan has worked with front office. The we've had this discussion before, but this this sort of cohesiveness in an organization is critical to the sort of overall success. And like you said what they've been able to do really on the fly because you couldn't predict obviously the Jimmy Garoppolo is gonna go down. You couldn't predict jerick. Mckinnon really the free agent guide that they went after in terms of skill position. Couldn't predict that. He was going to go down. Dante Pettis hasn't played a lot as as sort of the receiver that they drafted obviously with his skills and ability in mind is far as what he could bring the Shanahan's offense. They're really sort of mismatching or sort of mixing all of this together. And it's morphed from what looked like it would be Jimmy Garoppolo in jerick McKinnon show to sort of using George Biddle as the focal point of this offense. And then doing other things around him in what he can do well sort of collectively as a team than to find some success. Obviously you wanna see it week to week play out in. There's been some issues with CJ Beathard at quarterback in in particular, some of their performance against their own a cardinals just a couple of weeks ago in they've still got some tests moving forward, but on the fly to do this is really really impressive..

"So bad. We should really start fading to get some money. Just take the opposite of what you say. We'd be rolling in it. Yes. You would listen do. I get credit for five. And when I say here, my pigs go opposite. My that should be a five at home, right? Telling you to Opposite. go. Renzo dumb. That's the thing that you do. So that either way if you go five, and no, it's brilliant. Really? It's why he's an idiot genius. Either way you go five and out if you actually get or no one five you go five and you go five and you get a five enough. Yeah. I don't think that's exactly what brilliant is to label. That brilliant is probably giving way too much credit. How would you label? It no idiot genius. I said it hit genius look whenever I call to gods and a genius. It's always with idiot somewhere. Either a word or two before it. Thank you, Dan. I was on the raiders to though, I mean, Nick Mullins. I mean who knew all the sharps Russian. I'm going to go ahead and say that there was somebody who knew somebody who knew the Shanahan guy who does a good job with quarterbacks. Like that's become clear now. Right. We don't clear we all know. Ooh. This guy's really good with quarterback. Yeah. Everyone was siding with RG three during his time in Washington. And it seems as though calcium handle may not was our judicial to watch that happen to Gruden because you can have your quibbles with rebuilding. And whether he's now Jimmy Johnson the first year Jimmy Johnson one in fifteen you can have your quibbles and getting rid of everybody. So they gotta be bad. And he's gotta endure it before he gets to Vegas. But what that looked in felt like last night as you watched it unfold. It's ooh, there's one guy who plays in the present with the future. And there's another guy from the past who doesn't know what to do with it. Because it was those were all bootlegs, and that's just that's the stuff that he does and Oakland no answers for anything. And as good as this kid was and he what are they? They saying they're saying it's as good a debut as a quarterback has had. It's not because of that his guys were running wide open all over the field. That was obviously a scheming advantage slow. Yeah. Cal- Shanahan schemes guys wide open all the time. It's an evolved version of his dad's offense with the Broncos so like zone blocking scheme, but look what he did with Brian Hoyer had the Browns on playoff conversation few years ago. Turn Matt Ryan into an MVP Kashan. In is absolutely a tremendous tremendous coach this was on a short week within actually have any practice time. So Nick Mullins just throws shrivels into the NFL and does this. And I wish I knew that Cal Shanahan got his first job under Jon Gruden because then I would have known that he would have known that Jon Gruden hasn't changed anything since then and that Shanahan has ten days to get Mullins ready. The greatest quarterback in NFL history for the giants. I mean, forget it. And then the buccaneers after that, I mean Molins might win MVP. It's good. I'm not listening to anything. You say. I knew that last night. Let's let's take it easy on chat. Hanukkah done that much with Jimmy Garoppolo. I'm just saying it seems pretty obvious that he's good with quarterback. That's all what an awful take. Why was he done? They they beat the Jags Ryo is never been as good before. Or since he was when Shanahan was gaming everyone. Open forum. We'll see we'll see how it looks when they take on the Seahawks at a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe it. That Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit. How long until it got there along get.

"Potentially having, a Calvin really on the other side also helps so that. He's not constantly seeing double teams yeah but last year was Matt Ryan without Cal Cal Shanahan Bosma. Phoned him as much but, you gotta get, this is not last year this. Is not last year of course of course I mean every. Yep things get different things are different things get better Right but as but as as offenses are starting to grow. In, change running back are now carrying the responsibility. Of being potentially a wide receiver based, on the spread based. On defense is so you. Get you got a guy. Like Gilead, or or. I know Sawyer it's okay for us not to agree on, this right I know I just know I I understand what you're saying I'm just saying as a I think it's just a smart move from a fantasy perspective to add your. First pick being, someone, like Bill. Zeke Elliot Todd Gurley because, they have the pass. Catching ability plus the run catching ability Iran run ability that like, they can do anything that they want that they're going to score, the most points based on fantasy more than they are going to any one physician other than a quarterback like I. Mean yeah you're gonna you can choose Tom Brady but he's not gonna he. Doesn't have threat right now like he doesn't have a He doesn't, Isaac, words he. Doesn't agree with your strategy, for taking Tom Brady. Number one well yeah but at. The same time I mean You have to choose what's. Best, now he doesn't he's, in my. League so actually would, prefer that he chooses Tom Brady number one it would be okay with me no I, love Tom, Brady don't, don't don't get me wrong. But I'm just saying what makes. What makes, the most sense as far as a quarterback I got you know we're on the same page so here. I promise you don't. In fact. I'm giving you six minutes to state your case which is far. Longer than than what most people get so I got you you're good. Is Isaac, still going, to pick Tom Brady. Because he likes him a lot of people may fantasy football pigs. Because, they, like the players of course, of course I want to say this is the first time I've called any. Radio show, in my Ever awesome well I'm glad I hope it wasn't a.

"Fridays get you ready for your weekend with the little, not necessarily. That's right. Some stories from inside and outside the sports world that we liked to swipe, right. If we agree with swipe left, if we disagree with and swipe up, if we want a super like it, which is not a thing I knew existed, but I haven't been on tender except for when I'm helping out my friends. 'cause I've been off the market for quite some time which reminds me hitting the bar after this and I am one hundred percent setting up your ten? Yeah, it's going to happen buddy on be swipe it all up on this b word that I can't say. This is the SPN radio presented by progressive insurance. Let's get into it and that's right. Let's get into it. Lil Wayne is sending care packages to forty Niners coach Cal Shanahan because it seems that Shanahan named his son Carter after the New Orleans rapper and Lil Wayne heard about this has started sending a variety of things. Autographed poster, copy of the album sign. And stuff for the eight year old son and nicely gave the one with the cuss words to the dad gave the edited one to the sun. So Wayne thinking ahead on the question, I guess Nick is and Shanahan says, you know, he's listening to his music a lot when he was doing his first coaching gig for the bucks and that his wife would kill him. If he said the name was one hundred percent about the rapper. But the Carter one started it and he was always into that and what his wife said. She liked the name Carter. It was pretty easy for him because he was obsessed with them at the time. So the question for you is Nick, would you name your kid after a rapper? Oh, like it. I'm absolutely going to. Drake, chance free Dell. Well, there you go. That's a great name who. I wouldn't necessarily say because of those particular wrappers. I mean, I love chance strike as all you know, as we know in his feelings sometimes, but Drake, chance free dial is a great name. Now we just have to get onto now we gotta get tender and find someone to make baby. I'm gonna have to go ahead and. Here's why I like rap music. I have nothing against the idea of naming your kid after a rupture, but that's not going to be my first choice. If I'm looking for inspiration for my child to be sent onto the world bearing someone's name, I'm probably going to go with a great author, perhaps a musician. I admire maybe someone that has historical so that they can't milkshake duck me and turn into a terrible person. I don't wanna go with like OJ OJ Spain, Wade's the Bogue Wayne among. Yeah, so I have to swipe left on that by the way I, I saw little Wayne and Drake perform together at Michael Jordan's kids, high school graduation party at the park west that I kind of snuck into now the legally, but it wasn't invited. Yeah, they performed at Michael Jordan's kid's graduation party out right before they really blew up. They were. They were. They were big, but not quite that big. All right. Next question on the old, not necessarily sports, tender. LeBron has said that he now regrets naming his kid. Brawny said that having his kid bear his name just means a lot of pressure for him. We've seen a lot of this lately. Serena Williams saying, I hope my daughter doesn't play tennis because I'm just real good at it. Which as meantime said was, I see no lie there. Whereas the li- and we saw, of course Jordan talking about in his hall of fame speech. He feels bad for his kids. It's a lot to live up to the question is, do you think there's more pressure on brawny because he shares his name, or would you be pressured regardless distribution the Bronx kid?.

"The same thing he's studying defenses and he's practicing he's getting better he has a certain week he has certain weaknesses and things like that but you gotta understand like cal shanahan and this isn't that vantage form because cal shanahan when he with the falcons he made right matt ryan into an mvp matt ryan came back once he left and didn't play as well i think that's a huge advantage for jimmy g because cow shanahan is one of the best offense of minds in all the football and i think that's going to be big for him but also an improved defense and yeah there's gonna be some pressure but because of the contract but i don't think this guy's going to he's going to bow down to the pressure i think there's always some self imposed pressure because he wants to be great he has the money now you know he's set for life it's all he has to do is really just go out there and play obviously there some expectations and things like that but ultimately is going to come down the way he prepares the way he prepares on the weekend and week out basis the way his teammates look at them and not fallen for all the hype not fall and follow the people pat you on the back and i don't think he's that type of kid you know it's interesting too because richard sherman came out to a niner's nation report and talked about the fact that he could read a tell with jimmy garoppolo now in these these camps they've done and one of them was this let me quote you exactly what richard sherman said your quote you just need to read him hand off ball he's letting it go you have to be decisive when you make those decisions if he takes his hand off ball doesn't throw it i think he'll throw guys off but when he takes his hand off the ball you've got to be ready to break these are little things and that's why it's key to have a guy like richard sherman forget the fact that he's still very good cornerback but sherman's a smart player and for young quarterback i jimmy garoppolo look the book is still being written on jimmy garoppolo teams are going to look for things right they're going to break down all the film ronnie as you know you're a film guy they're gonna find little things on jimmy garoppolo to have richard sherman come out and say hey this is what i'm noticing it's only going to benefit a young player like rob lowe because in this league when people do watch all that film any little thing they you give in the sense of my throng in my handing it off that could be terrible for your career so for me it's great that you have veterans like sherman there now that obviously a looking after garoppolo trying to help and may help make him into the best quarterback he can be even with little things like a towel but i'll tell you this dan we used to try to figure out certain things with peyton manning you get so caught up in trying to figure out certain little things with peyton manning and studying him on film and once you get on the football field you try to figure it out it actually slows you down it actually is a defense it actually slows you down because you're so bent on trying to figure out okay what does pain many doing with his right hand now you can't play free you can't so to me i just you have to be very careful as a defense back in and of course jimmy garoppolo smarten cal shanahan is very smart so they're gonna say okay this time i want you to act like you take a hand off the ball or whatever and throw a double move and then all of a sudden it's a touchdown these guys get paid millions of dollars to these so what what's written richard sherman is talking about is truth but if you get too caught up in the mechanics of a quarterback it's gonna actually slow you down as defensive player now that's a great point over thinking is what you're saying right absolutely over thank you because you you sitting here you're waiting you're waiting and you're not one hundred you can't you know once you wait you're waiting for certain things you slow down as a player and it's not you're not normally just reacting you're not using your instincts you're sitting there waiting for something that probably won't even happen when you look at jimmy garoppolo all rodney and.

"In and they are supporting him and he's the guy without question they threw three guys overboard for him yes some pressure comes along with that but he's got a level of security and faith that he didn't enjoy during his time in washington stats next up another quarterback this time in san francisco jimmy garoppolo mike comes into san francisco reignites the passion of the fan base like me and gets another big deal well that's right twenty seven and a half million he was the highest paid player in football four month he's still not bad for a guy that started a handful of games last year and one of the big concerns going into two thousand eighteen when you have enough film on a guy can you stop him can you slow him down can you put obstacles in his path that he will not be able to overcome i asked cal shanahan about that at the scouting combine are you concerned that once you get into multiple games in the two thousand eighteen season and is figure out what jimmy garoppolo likes to do what he doesn't like to do when the game planning is more deep and robust and complicated will be able to bust through that ceiling and shanahan's look when you're talking about a guy who's a pocket passer it's less of a concern he just moves onto his next week but we'll see we'll see it's always easier to be able to throw it to your first guy it becomes a lot more complicated stressful and pressurized when you have to cycle to number two and number three because with each one what's happening that clock keeps ticking that moment is coming or someone is going to blast you while you're trying to get rid of the football so i think it's going to be not nearly as easy done as shanahan seems to think and that is part of the pressure that's on him and garoppolo for twenty eighteen go to kansas city now guy was there alex smith at a pretty good run their mike now it's the patrick mahomes show for.

"Ends up being today is fun today is interesting this is the part of the nfl machine this is the thing that that keeps it going but the lead up to it where it's the end all be all and i understand we're talking football and it's an awful ball time so it's people try to make a bigger than what it is it's just so the whole spectacle leading up to this can be annoyed once you get to it there is definitely some value in it and when it comes to the niners it looks like in the three guys we talked about here denzo award roku were kwon smith and missing patrick from from alabama the safety from alabama those are three defensive players and if the niners stay at nine they're going to get one of those three defensive players and when talking about the niner's organization going forward there was some thought that maybe they try and do a little bit more offense and go offensive in the first in in the first round at number nine but maybe they're not going to do that they're gonna stay defensive as they did last year i don't i'm not making a judgment on that one way or another i just find it interesting that it was a pretty heavy defensive draft last year maybe it won't be as heavy this year but the most important pick the first pick the first round pick that being a defensive player i think that's that's an interesting bit here with the niners in what they're trying to bill with john lynch in cal shanahan going forward because you're also gonna see first of all all these quarterbacks are gonna go early every one of us begging not to be taken by the browns with the first big.

"Going to be knocking heads for the top of that division here for years to come absolutely is going to be a fist fight for a while and i i do like before they might actually be a fish it's going to be good i just don't want to say laying on garoppolo two times a year you know what fitness neither does cal shanahan and neither vestige federal bandages some so they do the draft lyman we've we talked about this a we've talked about it before on the air off the air and it you know if you watch the nfl you follow the nfl you deep into it you understand how things have changed when it comes to pressure if you get pressure off the edge that's great not is going to say now we don't need the edge pass rushers but it's not as crucial as it used to be because quarterbacks you know quarterback likes pressure but if the pressure's coming off the edge especially if it's pressure that they can see they could deal with that they could feel it the most problematic pressure for any quarterback including a very good to great ones like tom brady as the best example pressure in their face when you got guys blowing up the air gap on either side of the center and they're just coming in coming in coming that affects a quarterback's makes them uncomfortable it affects her ability to see so when it comes to the niners here and this off season and you know this draft a like the the guy that they got he's got to play center i thought he played guard but then they made they made the trade to the dolphins but i like the guy in western rich burke that they'd gotten to play center he is going to be very good very solid that's great but what's going to be on either side of rich berg who i think is a pro bowl caliber player who's going to be on either side of rich berg at those guard positions to make sure that that pressure from the middle which when talking about the rams that pressure is going to be steady and constant it's emotional and they're not going to have to mess around and and stunt goof it up it's just going to be we're we're we're attacking the middle of your offensive line.

"That they're getting the systems in place the college shanahan wants and for the same reason shanahan believes in cousins cousins believes in shanahan and they go forward together so i think that if the forty niners starting quarterback job was available and the forty niners were prepared to pay her cousins here's the other thing to look at what they pay jerk mckinnon look at what they paid western rich berg they have the cash they have the cap space look what they paid garoppolo if they're gonna pay twenty seven and a half million a year to garoppolo i think they would have gone thirty million a year maybe more to get kirk cousins so there'd be no doubt about it whatsoever we believe in this guy it's money we have it we get it from the tv contracts we get it from all the fans that are buying tickets although there apparently aren't as many as there used to be maybe there will be if we bring in kirk cousins so i think they would have broken the bank even more than the vikings did if kirk cousins would have been available but this idea that that shanahan had to be talked into garoppolo it just doesn't fit with the vision we had of that franchise at least division i had and i think plenty of others the cal shanahan was charge so it's it's still possible that they talked him into it that his initial reaction was i don't want to do this but maybe john lynch and jed york and others persuaded him to just try it and if it doesn't work we let him go and we'd go get kirk cousins i can't help but feel that that was part of this overall discussion and deliberation if we accept as true and there's no reason not to accept as true what john lynch said that cal shanahan was in mourning for a while after jimmy garoppolo became the team's quarterback no room for morning here we've got plenty more to get to on pf t live and one of our good friends and football night in america colleagues tony dungy we'll be joining next one asked him about some of these rule changes and also get his reaction to the move that brings jason pierre paul to tampa he knows a lot of the tampa fans how excited are they about the future now the jp is in town library after this.
