"The toughest division in the league i just think i think there's nothing not to like they can run the ball they can beat you with the run game they can beat you passing it i mean i think they're deep at all kinds of key positions you mentioned what they did in the draft last year not in love with what they did at the top of the draft this year using two first round picks to get the the edge rusher but it's obviously a guy they really believe in when given what they got it you got teams in that when they feel like they're close one piece they are they feel feel right like they're close within the hannah's championship last game but for what one miracle play by the vikings right and who's to say they go to philly maybe they can play better than minnesota did things would be different so they feel that way sit there they were they were not too far a reason to that here is our pie chart as we look at the percentages and congrats see both math on point today we had no issues to my knowledge but it's not it's possible i would miss it so we'll be taking a look this week at each division we'll have the final tally from all of our panelists on friday again as we look out for the team that goes worst to first in its division at tappan fourteen of the last fifteen seasons it is july second to i four week course so when thought we'd go inside the off season headlines are first from courtney cronin are vikings reporter kirk cousins good in the boots elite at avoiding getting hit in dodgeball so i'm back here with damien woody and in grozny yano okay so work with us here's off season he showed off his dodge ball skills there kirk cousins dead so here we go pun intended can dodge the rest of the nfc north and lead the vacuum viking back to the division top of the division check that bay man and in green bay th will be back pretty good player he's really good quarterback i mean listen kirk cousins good numbers but he's not on the level of aaron rodgers so this green bay team you know they got they got a new deep of the coordinator they added jimmy gram tight in i think it's green bay team's going to have a lot to say about who's gonna win the nfc north this year why don't we doing percentages on the nfc north oh that's a tough one that's going to be really tough on the green bay minnesota's rawson very very good and the defense especially while we talk on the back into the defense is loaded i mean the wide receivers deal in digs as good as anybody in the league in terms of tandem so i think kirk cousins has a very good chance but today means point aaron rodgers probably will be heard from before it's all said tomorrow as answer that question we will do that right asked him about that our next headline comes from texans wide receiver will fuller this via instagram this is video of him climbing up what appears to be a steep sand dune in the desert i didn't that wow that's easy don't try to home i guess not do the texans have the biggest mountain to climb where is he in the afc south that was the biggest mountain no they don't have the biggest mountain to climb because they're in the afc we just talked about this right i think i think they could their quarterback healthy and he plays all sixteen games big ifs obviously but they should be one of the favorites in that division get to answer to have you ever again or too long i know the summer we said the summer of dan and damion finally congratulations in order for browns quarterback baker mayfield who announced via instagram that yes he has gone relations engaged still that's usually a pretty good time you know there's a honeymoon honeymoon period and teams and cities also enamored with their draft picks especially the very top how long the honeymoon period left last if he will for cleveland and baker mayfield i'm going to say he's number pig he's going to be a lot of leeway i'm going to say i would say the direct alverson you don't think they could all worked up because he doesn't produce early tyrod taylor is why i i know that but you know i mean fans are sometimes he'll patient maybe i'm asking too much fans of thank.

"May be the one or two to go worst to first the nfc south with strong last year three teams finishing with at least ten wins it was the only division with three teams in the playoffs as well the bucks have a long way to go our question now can they beat a team to go from worst to first in answering that question it's important to look at the changes that teams have made it in the off season so when you look at tampa bay they added weapons to their defensive line by trading for jp in late march they drafted defensive tackle vita with their first overall pick much needed help to a defense which ranked last in the nfl but then the news last week that quarterback jameis winston will be suspended for the first week games of two thousand eighteen for violating the league's personal conduct policy so this team will be without it starting quarterback for three of the first four weeks of the season percentage chance that tampa bay wins the nfc south damian still waiting well he's going indianapolis style here consistent listen i don't like anybody i didn't feel i didn't feel confident that they won't win the division eat anyway would james winston starting all sixteen games now that he's missing three games the first three games of the season yeah i think this is going to be a tough row for temporary buccaneers to be able to navigate within a division with that sent three teams to the playoffs this year they've made some changes and i i like some the move they made but again when you missing the starting quarterback the first three games and the whole key to a season is getting off getting all flip hired start on this thing that's going that's when i heard them unfortunately in my opinion for tampa bay feels like two steps forward three steps back like we just can't get moving in the right direction i'm not putting zero up there always topical stance here i say that is cheating cheating chance okay that's fair enough three playoff teams right i give the colts of five and the colts plan a strong afc division but a strong nfc division is something different right the nfc is kind of like wendy if i may now that i'm an nba analysts the western conference what the eastern conference a little bit here crossover show love hey that's a whole because the whole thing how about atlanta all right again a strong team last season the falcons the biggest move they made drafting wide receiver calvin ridley out of alabama to help both to an already explosive on pets under matt ryan who we know now signed a contract extension in may and they short up there kicking game by resigning the reliable matt griot to a three year deal this this offense was already strong i'd have to argue it got stronger david the chances the falcons win the division going forty it's pretty high i think the second year with steve sarkissian as the office coordinator i think is going to be i think it's going to be big for them hit more of a rhythm obscene saw last year you know some things that they had going on with that offense they weren't necessarily clicking like when they hit cow shanahan but i think the second year he'll know how to better utilize the personnel and calvin calvin ringleted office boy i this dude is one of the more explosive wide receiver coming out of draft so i i like the nfl ryan joined us when he signed his contract extension than may and said the same thing look it takes a minute to get justin to a new coordinator we were moving in the right direction but we didn't fully get there and i think we'll be you know a lot farther ahead of the game this time around i think it's an important factor here they may be but it wasn't the only problem the falcons hat last year a young defense that really didn't handle its success all that well too a lot of penalties that killed drives you know you had a team that in two thousand sixteen played as well as a capacity play in two thousand seventeen struggled with some things that didn't the year before so i think they're a very good roster top to bottom and i think we have to see who they are are they the team that dominated in two thousand sixteen in the second half of the year when all the way to the.

"That rams defend so it'll be incumbent you know it'd be incumbent on way phillips to get those guys way one the best defensive coordinator is in the national football league guys lo plan for wave phillips so i don't see that being a problem but you know i think that's something that has to be stated right now to sean mcvay the head coach spoke to him a couple of times this off season you know on this topic and that's obviously what everybody wants to talk about how how you bring it all together he said the key is making sure that everybody is on the same page in terms of what they believe about the team's identity the team's culture guys that love football as a phrase he keeps using keep delete as a player that that wade phillips knows coached him in denver so they know who he is dominating sue they spend a great deal of time with before signing him as a sue and aaron donald were in communication with each other other before the signing the rams made sure donald knew what they were doing with regard to sue so he wasn't upset about it so they did spend some time thinking about how this will all fit together and why it'll all fit together and there's a difference between bringing in guys from the outside to help you with stabbing a culture and bring in guys from the outside to fit a culture you're already building and if you believe that you've done the second thing then it can work if you're trying to do the first thing i think that's when we've seen a blow and i think that's especially true with dhamma consumer because he's not proposed the first time in his career he's not the man aaron donald is american and he's complimenting aaron donald in this situation it and i would say it is the first time what a what a departure for down consumer how this okay derek carr this first tweet he's talking about welcoming all new lakers fans alley there's a bandwagon here with the latest news it's fair that you'll have one of these and what it is i believe is a form we all love forms it's a it's an application faneuil a bandwagon application taking oil location yes because damian i believe wasn't laker fan pressure to i do okay do all right but you can transfer your phantom but what i really like because i like to be prepared is sort of your backup plan you need a backup plan in case oh break loose and you.

"Holdover whatsoever no they've seen this coming for awhile just knowing what the cap numbers were going to be on these guys starting this off season into twentyeight teen so guys like richard sherman you know i think probably earl thomas they extended kam chancellor last year obviously didn't foresee his injury but michael bennett got to the point where they weren't going to pay him anymore and frank clark as an ascendant talent there on the defensive line sheldon richardson was there for a year i mean that was that was a flyer they took on him but yeah i mean you think about that that's secondary and what do all those highlights the first three or four those highlights where he's forcing fumbles there's two or three other guys intricately play right everybody was working off each other and in concert with each other and when you get that as a team damian i mean you know you've played on championship teams i'm sure you know when you have those guys all working together like that i mean that's the thing beauty terminating is intimidating for the opposing for the opposing offense when you guys that's rally around the ball that cost less woman to the ball overtime in a game it it takes its toll on you let's circle back to earl thomas because i feel you know we've seen this movie before what are the odds he holds out or do we see him at the start of training pretty strong odds he holds out if he doesn't get a new deal before training remember he skipped that mandatory minicamp last month where you you start to get fine if you missed that so he's already shown he's willing to accept some fines in order to make his point if he doesn't get a new contract for traded to a team that will give him one before training camp i would expect him to hold out for at least a few days and you saw with chancellor a couple of years ago he missed regular season games in a contract dispute so if thomas is willing to take it all the way it could force the seahawks hand you know to your point we talked to carol at the combine he did see a lot of this coming it doesn't mean that these changes won't take a little time to settle in i mean that's just that that's just the way it works and there's been a number of them seahawks rookie linebacker shaquille griffin took the mound at safeco field threw out the first pitch and guest the catcher i love this is twin brothers shaquille griffin perfect first pitch one brother to another nobody got it any kind of fight or anything like that not those not those two that's pretty good news i two weeks to go now until the deadline four franchise players to reach longterm deals with their respective teams none more talked about perhaps than this guy levy on bell for the second consecutive season he's been franchised by the steelers so as we turn now to reaction monday i'll say this steelers should pay the man whatever he wants but we're reaction not an overreaction i think it's an overreaction but whatever he wants i mean there's gotta be something reasonable here they're already at fourteen point five million on the franchise tag so if he wants more than that i mean that's that's six and a quarter million more than the next highest paid running back makes i think i think everybody's got to be reasonable i'm all for guys getting paid i just think that there's a number for levian bell it somewhere between whatever he wants and and what's what's reasonable it'll still be pretty excellent so i'd say no it's an overreaction running back there is inherent risk there he's not a free agent yet so no what do you got when do you know i'm pro player i thank god i pay you know but the the symptom me gotta say overreaction in there listen you can't just go out there and go willy nilly and just given gaas backing up the truck like that but i mean this guy has this guy deserved to be clearly the highest pay running back in the national football league he's going to be that with the franchise tag but i know he wants.

"Of the guard continues in seattle seahawks safety kam chancellor appears to have retired via an announcement on twitter although he never used the word retire it does appear neck injury has ended his career here's some excerpts from his statement i've played through all types of bruises and injuries at a high level but this one i just can't ignore when the doctors told me what was going on in november i could feel my heart drop the stiffness in my neck and the images i saw had me at one of my lowest point as a man because football is all i knew outside of serving the lord to walk away from the game by choices one thing to walk away from the game because of the risk of paralysis is another my final test showed no healing i put all my blood sweat and tears into this game and he ended the statement with this time for the next after so few players in the nfl get to leave on their own terms it certainly every single players goal but that's not always the case dan and in this case i'm sure there are other choices that would have been made but the risks here were legitimate right and all that's laid out in his statement the issues regarding head injuries nick injuries what the doctors have been telling kam chancellor about his chances of significant catastrophic injury if he continues to play you mentioned that the word retire is not in the statement that's no accident kam chancellor's he has six point eight million dollars fully guaranteed coming this year but this ten million dollar salary for twenty nine thousand nine five point two million of it is injury guarantee if he retires then technically they don't have to pay the injury guarantees so he stays away from that word because there's almost certainly going to be discussions between kam chancellor and the seahawks and some sort of settlement that gets him some of his twenty nine hundred money similar situation what we saw earlier this off season with the bill center eric would lead to retire under similar circumstances they reached an injury settlement he had a press conference he never said retire so but in terms of kam chancellor again it's all laid out there the reasons why and if anybody's wondering why the word retire isn't in there that's almost certainly the explanation damian he was a heck of a player in part of a heck of a group you know it's almost in some ways i feels like anyway the end of an era and we'll talk more about the position in particular a little bit later but this group has seen a lot of changes and cam the latest in that line when i think of the legion of boom a lot of people talk about richard sherman and rightfully so he's a great player but i think safety's earl thomas in and cam chancellor because those two guys were the enforces they set the tone full it now only secondary before the whole team and the team to own their identity and kam chancellor boy what a career he had he i think he's he's in a last breed type guy one of those guys that comes down in the box and wool thought you the death and he's a heck of a safety four sir if you will and to your point we're going to see some changes likely in that regard no one is disputing either the changes that we've seen in the seattle defense bound to happen but you know dan we were talking it seems like it's been rapid look at this i mean this is the sort of the height of the legion of boom if you will this is what the defense looked like all right so you can see and then you move now to what we would call the seahawks defensive depth chart heading into two thousand eighteen and there's really not a lot of.
