"I Look I've stayed with Boston the whole way I'm going to stay with Boston. Now, I'm not going to be the slightest bit surprised if Toronto wins the only thing that's going to surprise me Mike honestly is if Kemba Walker gets five points again, he's all. It can't have terrible games in a row. I am sorta haunted by what Van Vliet said that they never should have let us back in and so my question is, can Boston get up off the mat because they have had to devastating losses having give back off the met they got a terrific team is going to be around Tony. If Danny Angel powers-that-be in Celtic Land, want them to be around and together we'll be watching him deep into the playoffs I like everything about the Boston Celtics. I disliked Toronto a little just like you I'm surprised to pick them gain. You can't go out and say, OH I. Knew. I Would Toronto is you know all season I picked him to win the east at the beginning of the playoffs. I'm not going to run away from that now. But who the hell knows this watch, the game gotta WanNa. See this game tonight. Next. Tony and Mike. You see Tom Brady the bucks upsetting droop reason the saints. So I want this to happen I want Brady to be great I want Tampa Bay to be great. All right and I think they have this benefit tonight might there's no better home field advantage than New Orleans. But if you have no fans in the dome that probably negates that having said all that is star studded roster. For Tampa, Bay has not played a single game together not even an. Exhibition game together they're walking into this cold and play against the Super Bowl contending team with the best wide receiver in all the football it in Michael Thomas. If this was week seven, I'd feel differently but a week one I see New Orleans, winning I i. just I was worried that you were seeing the game being played tonight, which is not going to be played tonight with scared me Nobel. Sunday. Res Tony Still Has Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara I mean he's got those weapons are as good as anything Tom Brady has no matter how much people are singing the praises I think is a slight homefield advantage not the big home field that his noise in that Dome I am going with drew brees and the saints and week one. And Mike Evans is also hurt and so that. Next that I really WANNA. Know you see Cam Newton cooking in week one? So Cam Newton was asked the other day will they are? With debut New England and here's this exact quote I don't get butterflies I give butterflies is Cam Newton healthy. This is the only question that's out there as Cam Newton healthy because you can talk to Shawn Watson and you can talk about, let me read these guys off Lamar Jackson Dak Prescott, they've never been to the Super Bowl Cam Newton's been to the Super Bowl. If Cam Newton is healthy I, expected me to the good I expect him to win. This game I expected to win the game, but the question is clicking. No not week one I don't think they don't have to because Bill Bella checks teams are going to rely on any one thing that they need to do to win. They'll have all sorts of stuff clicking in and maybe defensively, it could be special teams. It could be a running game that nobody's talking about camel get there. I. Think as you know, I've got bill belichick and CAM. Newton. Better. Breaking News, that's the I'm willing to make. He has a half.

And then didn't score again until garbage time would seven minutes left in the game, the Texas without the Andrea Hopkins, who they traded away and the chiefs with their rookie running back out of lsu Clyde Edward Solaire, and all he did was gain one, hundred, thirty, eight yards rushing wilbon. What was more noticeable the absence of Hopkins or the addition of Edwards Hilar- The absence of Hopkins Tony. Houston Texas. You're talking about franchises seem to frequently outsmart themselves. They get rid of Hopkins, they ship them and I'm glad narrow Zona. We GonNA lineup play, opposite Larry. Fitzgerald. which could could really be something to watch. But in terms of Houston, what the Hell Are you doing? What are you doing you? You have people out there who allegedly run sub for fours and they still can't get open and to Shawn, Watson doesn't have a line still that can keep him upright. He is always trying to keep his. Head up and look down feeling not look at the rush, and then the pocket collapses because he doesn't have one. So the absence of an offensive line comes secondarily to the absence of Hopkins Tony I mean the Houston to I. Love Him I love this Watson. I can't root for the Houston Texas they I live one division like for the last five years I love Jj Watt. Just seemed like a dumps of an organization and a lot of ways. Yeah.

He had eleven rushes for seventy seven yards and a touchdown three catches for thirty two yards. so that's like ten yards every time he touches the ball. That's good. But the substitutes that they got for the department hockey. Yeah. Yeah. They got Randall COBB and Brandin cooks had four cats it from forty three yards. Let me go to the chiefs for a second though I know we talked yesterday about how people don't repeat and I don't think people repeat in the NFL but boy oh boy, they look very, very good. This kid look what they lost Damian Williams opted out this year and a couple of years ago I guess it was Kareem. Hunt. They lost him bad behavior this kid Edwards. They're just place them looks as good. He and the other kid Mahomes is a prodigy at twenty four. He takes what the defense gives him. He's great. They looked very good Mike. As. Much of it was too late. I'll admit when Louis Riddick was talking him up and selected him as fantasy draft and said this kid, this is the Komo one. One I said, let me pay more attention to Edward. Solaire might have otherwise good for him. Good for Louis Riddick and those who followed suit but still man I'm looking at a Houston going. What are you doing? What are you doin' trade on the winner? The winner was really great. All Year to talk about the William overstay tight in the people are going to overstate that it Kansas City are they're sixteen in ot? Maybe? No. Maybe, there's great. No, not sixteen to no no no.

I'm not sure I didn't expect that I didn't understand the booing. Not about the anthem it was not about the flag they have locked arms. I didn't understand what people were doing what about it a little bit. About it and I thought maybe what it stands for is that some people may be many people because you don't know stands for about a quarter full you don't know what it represents, but maybe they're tired of the political Zeh of sports and maybe they want their sports just as sports and they don't want anything else with it but. You know it and it's their right to progress. It is that way Bush it's their right. If you're going to have a democracy here, you gotta hear from everybody I won't go back on what you said I. Mean I'm not an anthem guy is you know I don't really know why they play it but I was very surprised that only one person knelt and and I just wondered was that something that they set up beforehand that only one person would do it because I expected more than that. Game by game and like Tony Dungee said so eloquently, last night I am not going to keep a scroll of who does what I just I. Don't care I care what people believe in, and if you want to protest dot com five because it is a democracy let me go back to let me go back to the boost. The booze we're about sixty percent. That's what I heard. So the people who said, they did hair blowing sorry I heard it. I expect the booing because I think is the culture. You know how cynical I am now Tony you and I have have changed places in our lives in the culture and what we expect from people. I think as a culture, we are dumber and meaner than ever I know we're less literate and so the meanness comes out it comes out in so many different ways and by the way I'm not I didn't say the people in Missouri I'm saying we're going to hear this. You won't hear that I'm betting that kind of bullying and pick some places not pick. CHICAGO NEW YORK. Washing. San Francisco. I'm talking with amber they get fans, and by the way, some of these places are trying to get fans is Chicago I. Know Because I'm listening to the story unfold, they're trying to have fans before the end of the season. So yes, nobody else has fans now Jacksonville in Kansas City are the only ones. That's only that's right. I. Think we're going to hear this kind of bullying I think there's a segment of the culture that is larger than you think there is that is not going to be progressive and think progressively about that in the way I defined progression. It. is their right to do. That is your right to kneel. It's right to boo okay. I was a little surprised because we quoted that Washington Post poll yesterday. Yeah. At sixty two percent of the people felt the athletes had a right was that. National is yet. I don't know if you've seen this year. the Miami Dolphins released. Why are they going to stay in the locker room? Yes it is moving. It is power. It's an extended rhyme I think people ought to look at the. Powerful both yes the Houston Rockets were beaten soundly last night by the Lakers that series is now three to one and it will be four to one. The rockets can't guard big people they were out rebounded fifty, two, twenty, six, twelve to one on the offensive glass. They got next to nothing from James Harden two for eleven shooting did not even attempt a shot in the fourth quarter one. Woolens are the rockets getting closer or further away. Know. philosophically. I don't like small just philosophically don't like it. So I didn't think they were going to do any more than one game the first game and they wanna I just sort of going through to form. The Lakers had strategy. They've known about since. March, maybe before. James Harden got the ball. They believe they could double team make him make bad decisions turnover over be less effective. They knew exactly what they do against James Harden and the Lakers are not worried in the least about this. Now looking ahead Tony Russell Westbrook, who was a hall of fame all time great players first ballot. He's not more effective because he can't shoot it and teams are going to say fine you think you could dominate us in the paint you go ahead and do that. That's not going to win a playoff series or beat good teams. So there's more work to do Daryl Morey if he's still there what they have done in Houston, they've been able to he's able to credit him. As to rebuild retool and keep going to stay in contention I think they can still do that. But this group I.

"Perry who was retained as the Geo is family to me. He's also a Detroit native I made contact with him very often. But the key has to be. To fall back and let them do their thing. Not Be. In the summer of K. D. during a local radio interview talking about Oh, we need to possibly see the medicals or we may not offer him the whole Max like we don't need him sabotage. We need him. To. Go, just just just fall back. You don't come to the Games. With whoever you WANNA come to the games with and leave. That like that for real like if that happens and he allows those people that you just had to do their job, then I think they can now go sell who they are to sum up becoming free agents in the game and turn their situation around. Absolutely. In Jalen, we didn't get to discuss this much on the show as we run out of time. So I wanNA bring it up again, there was a display of unity another nothing to do with the anthem, another American flag, a display of unity. Again, I'm going to say a display of unity between the chiefs and the Texans, and there were some booze. Now, I'm not going to act like all seventeen thousand people booed loudly but there was there was a presence of booze during a display of unity had nothing to do with the flag or the anthem. What do you make of that from the Kansas? City fans a few dozen. Bother me it. Doesn't bother me at all. I didn't get a chance to talk about on the television show I noticed.

"At this point no and I think part of it too is also like time under task right like relative to his football life cycle. Jimmy Garoppolo has not been at this a long time and based on the way they'd operated team like I think German Garoppolo to an extent unless he's a pro. This is how you're all expected to operate. So when I say this don't freak out like we wouldn't treat any other position the same when your number's called. You're told the answer the bell but Jimmy Garoppolo threw the ball twenty five times in the playoffs leading up to this like he was not asked to use his arm a lot. And then you get to the most important game of the season and as we mentioned the game flow changes that a little. But you're asked to do a little bit more and you're expected to they pay you handsomely to do so but you're it's still not something and you hear players all the time time under task. You haven't spent a lot of time under task being forced to drop back pass to do some of the things that he ultimately failed in this Chris Jones the one who got no heat on the sanders. Overthrow WPRO trying to remember who got pressure on that one. I thought he should've hit that. I Oh yeah absolutely. And it wasn't the one that they showed the video after Kyle on the sideline line next to next to John Lynch oh no. Oh that's brutal. Yeah I mean he had him. And you know a lot of other quarterbacks at that like the quarterbacks who are all above him hit that throw right you know I mean we. We talked about this. It was the side by side of Patrick. Mahomes the throat tyreek hits the Sammy Watkins that we talked about on Sherman before he hits his shots and Garoppolo. Doesn't Andy Reid goes for it twice on fourth down and Kyle Shanahan Shanahan kicks the field goal like in the key situations that ultimately decide games like this one side was all gas no breaks and hit their mark on the other side. Folded was so mad at Andy. Andy Reid when I thought he wasn't going to go for because I was watching from home and then I saw and I saw all my friends on twitter saying they're sending out the field goal union. I was screaming and tearing our hair out and then he changed When you changed his mind I just like a sense of calm? Came over me honestly like a warm warm glow like people talk about when they have out of body experience and like a you know a benevolent spirit and and I felt like a mind meld with him in that very moment Chiefs had attempted the few tammy entire. What about when you just do it to three quarters is still low? I think but probably goes down a bit right because that's skewed by situation. You GotTa just look at the first one hundred and they were. They converted six ten so they were good at it when they did it. Their play quite calling on fourth down was awesome. How about the Yes it was awesome was one of the fourth down conversions. One where Anthony. Now that was the touchdown. We're Anthony Sherman. German lead where he just told Williams to follow him into that was really pretty. He did a lot of cool stuff with the run game in this one. They ran the ball a lot. More than the enemy that was entirely the product of what the niners were giving them on defense. which is the home speed option? Who has been saying? Ah Okay so I was wrong about many many things but I believe if you listen to this very podcast last week. There's a point where I tell Warren Sharp. I really hope. They run the option with homes at the goal line because this San Francisco Forty niners defense had struggled with that all year they struggle Kyle Murray British. Lamar Jackson had a successful zone. Read at the goal line to now mahomes got got you know got Walla but it worked. I Yeah that was great. Well one end you andy going for it. Being in a baller on the other hand you had kyle kick in the field goal Let's wrap over talking about the end of half thing because like I said I think that's really the thing you can dig him on. Although I've actually the more time I've spent thinking about it the more I think it's not as bad as people thought. Oh really now. I'll be interested to hear your reason because I heard one. I heard one reason that I can kind of vibe with and so I wanNA know if it's the one you're going for all right so for those who I forgot the chiefs stop. The niners are primarily the chiefs with one forty five. That's swear you thought okay. You know. It's safe forty seconds right for one forty five Donald Duck and you see John Lynch Aka Wes welker making a timeout came out gestured so they don't and he wrote in this all matters. The ran the ball. Aw most regains three yards Let's see okay. They didn't don't use a time out on the first first place then they got the big play on third down. It's sorry making sure is the third down play. Was that the kid the kid play. Got It wait no no no sorry. Sorry sorry sorry. Jeff Wilson catch the pass out of the backfield. Sorry I'm all discombobulated is completed. Then you get to your door to kill which is really by the way. Beautiful Pass by Jimmy Garoppolo. John Best passing through the game. So then it's an OPR. Whatever and like I said how you feel about that really comes down to how you feel about precedent in my opinion So afterwards I said immediately I said wait I had like a flashback to the Ravens Game Kyle did like this exact same thing thing against the Ravens and then I go back and I wanna see what he says about it afterwards. You know how he's defending it and he said that you know well they wanted to. You push it only after a minute. Because he didn't want to give the ball back to the other offense and much like the chiefs the Ravens have very good offense and it was interesting to me because I was okay like this is just as much if not more about the Mark Jackson and Patrick Mahomes than it is about an absence of faith in his own offense and then I think about it that way. Make it kind of made sense to me. I think we're looking at it so much through. Well he should have had faith as offense and he should have known mahomes wasn't playing well and they you know but China is using information from like the entire season. He wasn't thinking about like okay. Mahomes has struggled this game. Not GonNa Score here and when you think about it like it is reasonable that he thought if they failed Patrick Mahomes who come down the field the score and I think especially with that line of thinking and Tim Hasselbeck pointed this out to us that had the chiefs in another world made the right play there. It was botched by the special teams unit. But that ball should have been down pretty deep within their territory. So if you're talking about that potential of being backed up and they were still you know deep in their own territory wherever they started at so I don't know I guess I can understand like and you're right. It's like one of those consistent things like blackjack like if you hit her. Stay on sixteen. Just do it. All the time. Like the fact that he's consistent with it and that's a general philosophy for them. I guess is a little more defensible but I don't know man. I think I think I'm still kind of in the mode of like you know what if even if you are worried about the other side or even if you know understandable you don't have all the the faith that Jimmy Garoppolo is built for that moment like do you not have faith in the fact that you're Kyle Shanahan like maybe I have so much confidence in Kyle. I assume he can conquer the world also. Yeah Yeah also and this feels like a thing that is much easier to say with. Hindsight defense is playing really really well. I should've thought this is going to be harder for my defense as the game goes on right now we're crushing it. Maybe this is the lesson suppo is like you got to start thinking about these defenses and fourth quarters and how they're built and everything we talked about at the beginning of this and I think at that point his offense in in his de he's offense you know one your couch Shannon and you should be able to. We've seen you do this. You've seen you call like zinc credible two minutes and then to you. You should also also have faith in your defense to make this stop and all three. You know you gotta get the points against the chiefs. You gotta take them like he can't like foot off the gas pedal and that applies of course the field field goals well. This isn't going to be attended ten game. This isn't gonNA end seventeen to ten thirteen to ten. It's going to get worse right so. Yeah yeah well I think you said I think you said this leading up to the game right like these teams need to come out and throw haymakers early like you can't be passive in this game in the way and certainly that was more criticism the chiefs who had taken all these early you know deficits in all of their playoff games leading up to this but I think you could say the same for the niners and key point. They're like this is not a game to save. Save your bullets for late. He was protecting his defense and that was not the time to protect them. I think that's how I feel right right like he was coaching like he wanted to keep mahomes off the field and wanted to do whatever took points not disregard now worrying about getting his own points and I think that was that was a mistake I think and I think you phrased it perfectly there and maybe maybe you can call this strategy but I would call it maybe like inconsistent aggression right like we're rewarding in these instances down the stretch where he's got the goal to throw it in a situation where it's contested but then and you get to the field goal situation you get to the end of the half and all the sudden that's where you choose to turtle on this is something that I think when you've got those other things happening side by side. In the game it becomes a little confusing to me. Speaking of inconsistent aggression question from Lenny. Coming up I we're GONNA take a quick break..
"chiefs" Discussed on Nickel Package
"Aww You mentioned the most widely debated play of the game is the second in five to well. It was supposed to be George Kill and the topic debate is whether or not kyle. Shanahan should have run the ball there whether or not he should have run the ball more in the fourth quarter in general before we get started. I kinda just I want to go through exactly how the fourth quarter played out. Because I think it's worse actually like Setting the table and explaining how many opportunities they actually had to throw the ball versus running or whatnot so bear with me for a moment. I'd like to kind of walk through this. I think we I don't know it's just something that I think. The context matters absolutely well. especially if we're going to debate this run versus past. Ask thing okay so going into the fourth quarter. They're up twenty to ten right so really we're talking about three drives so at the beginning of four drives. Pardon me the last one. You don't really count. Obviously when they're down so I drive twelve minutes left. The niners are up. Twenty ten most rip Safa six yard run grotto. Hits kittle for twelve. Nobody's hungry because it worked and that's how things work most are runs for one yard. It's second night Jimmy. Garoppolo checks into a pass here okay. -portant context he misses deebo. Then it's thirty nine is is a false start. Then you're not running they punt right so you kind of throw that drive out the window. Here's the key drive arrive in question and I think this is the only because this is the following drive. You're down to two and a half minutes now. You run then you could but really. There's one drive five. I think where there's optionality that drive people will point out. They had all their timeouts remaining. You could run but I'm with you. I think it's the middle driving question that really has some validity. So I think that's worth point out. We're talking about a single drive here. Okay like did. That's not choker stuff. But whatever I intend most runs fibers. It's twenty to seventeen at this point by the way we seventeen. Yes twenty two seventeen guests and the niners are relevantly at their own twenty five so we're not in four. We're down territory. I think that also matters Here's a key second five. We're talking about this a million times you and I have. It's the past kittle. Who saw how they get them on Terrell suggs? which is I think if you probably couldn't pick a better possible matchup for George Kettle Chris? Jones who I earlier said I thought should have been one beef. Mvp He's not he's just trying to stop the run here or you know. He's just trying to fill the gap. He's getting double team being. He's well blocked by the way. Garoppolo sees ghetto scient- Jones gets his POV. Incredible play incredible timing yes. He's very tall knocks it down. Now people have pointed out he had deebo in the flat to his right shore shore. That would have been you know pass also but it's also worth noting there were like three hundred gs eight at the line like they had. They'd massive numbers advantage here not massive but this was not running situation like do you think there's a case to be made that she should run the ball there. So I think in general and I've gone back and forth on this just because it's not to me when with its cal Jane. It's it's not normal rushing the football like this isn't the Tennessee. Titans who were just a battering Ram Derrick Henry into this is the most creative running in pro sports outside of the Baltimore Ravens and and so I think what you when it comes to that. There's a different level of confidence. I AFFORD TO KYLE calling a run in that situation. That being said you're right. Numbers were there and they dictate tate. All these things and I am kind of sick and tired and I saw some people tweeting this at you and Dan the other day acting like this idea that Chris Jones is some sort of martial artists with this perfect timing. Who can bat these balls out of the sky with the ease of coming down your stand timing and batting a ball down is really freaking hard? It is a a really difficult thing to you. Even if you understand the ball's GonNa come out quick all these different things timing that and doing that in space is really hard so yes. It was an excellent play by Chris Jones and it shouldn't be trivialized and act like it's something that normal people can accomplish. Yeah so what you never throw it inside when Christians on the football field. If that's the case Chris Jones should make three hundred million dollars a year. Like I mean if if completely can take away all slants feel belongs to Christians is. He's a great player but like that's just nonsense. I mean it's great. He it was a I this. It's like the Butler play in the soup. I don't I was proud. I'm doing the secure talk. Nobody ever wanted to. Nobody wants to give credit to my welcome back everyone just wanted a crap on caroline. Dale Bebel. That wasn't amazing. People hate giving credit to defensive players. What is that? I Dunno Chris. Jones no fly zone. We're giving him the credit if there was a fantasy for. IBP People get off my lawn. I think your point about Shannon and what the competition the run game is. It's reasonable and I think it colors conversation right because any other offense in the NFL. Nobody's saying you gotta run second and five or third and five It's because of how good they've been. And and how good they have been with. Deebo Samuel in particular Tiller and. I think there's a case to be made that they should have gotten in the ball. Bit More in the fourth quarter because you know that reverse seemed to be unstoppable at times So turned five by the way he he tried to hit Bourne. It looked like a miscommunication. killer was opened again right But so really those are two plays in the game where I think you can argue. 'em You should have done something different but the idea that it's choking is observed right like I we're talking about debatable. Maybe a reverse. His annual would've worked there. But like you're GonNa Wind Kyle Shanahan for Garoppolo not hitting to open receipt. I don't it just doesn't compute to me. Now you can kill him for the of half stuff we can talk about that later but it just the play calling I mean Garoppolo you know. He collapsed under pressure in the fourth quarter. I don't really know that she's made a couple of outstanding ending defensive plays I thought Steve Spagnolo. No one's really talking about this did an amazing job make adjustments in the fourth quarter but I think he rightly saw what was going on with Garoppolo screen shot where he's like closing his eyes. Yeah he was one for nine under pressure won't and I do and that is worth noting and all this but it's also worth noting to the point of why you pass it twice in that situation relation this had not been the forty niners call sheet from the last run of playoff games right like they've been throwing those quick play action shots the entire game game flow. Oh was different for this one. The plan was different for this one. You would had plenty of success in that area. Throwing quick play action towards the middle of the field and so it wasn't far or fetched in that point to say what had been successful for us today not what had been successful for us in the NFC title game in the divisional round. What it worked today would be my biggest argument humidity? That situation for also why are I could see him calling passes in that spot. Let's get your take on this because this is something bill and I talked about Meena. Stop talking about bill which is that these play action? quarterbacks tannehill cousins Garoppolo the al Qaeda got exposed in the playoffs this year. Right And I don't think that doesn't ah. I don't think that means that I more team should continue to do but you know when there's there's been moments to were Garoppolo. I think even outside of in obvious in obvious passing situations he has succeeded in the past. But it it's undeniable diabled that he is greatly aided by optionality in the way we used to get the running past Games and win that goes out the window a little bit. It's hard you know and it's something that I also think. Defense can make adjustments to I. I didn't realize during the game Mike. How much how easy he had it? How open guys were? I saw that it was like almost entirely the play action. At one point he was like eleven twelve or something off of play action which is frankly hilarious but NFL next gen stats. They do that. Plus minus stat where they do the expected completion percentage and then how much quarterbacks produce above it based on chipping the players Kyle Cave Jimmy in expected. Completion percentage of seventy percent in this game and he was minus five point three which is really really really bad. Wow like he was you know bowling thumpers and so I look. I remember looking this up before the game. Because both of these teams schematically and with the talent some of the wide receivers tend to major in throws that look relatively open in next gen stats. I think defines wide open throws is five yards of separation of the time of catch. No one had ah higher yards per attempt on wide open catches than the San Francisco Forty niners which indicates yeah. A lot of these are deep. Play action shots. A lot of these are very well. Set up by your offense and that and I remember you and I had a conversation about play action like if it works so well. Why don't you run it all the time? And there's a bunch of reasons when it when you're under center especially which tends tends to be the bulk of them. You've got to turn your back to the defensive with a lot of great quarterbacks they'd rather have is on certain spots but the word you just used to describe offense to me can apply to a skill set like if if you don't have optionality in your skill set me you just don't have the ability to do other things when you get to the highest level like this. You're right people can game plan and expose you if you can only do one the thing. Even if that thing is you know by any analytically driven Mesh measure the most effective thing to do. You can still only do one thing and when you can do that. These defensive coordinators spend their entire lives every waking moment figuring out ways to do this. These are the best guys in the world. So yeah eventually even if the thing you do is the preferred medium. You're still a one trick pony and that doesn't fly when you're playing in the Super Bowl. I pulled up the next Gen stats. His completed air yards per tent was four point seven seven which is real low. Probably would've won. MVP look he was good like Garoppolo. I think deserves credit. He's thinking about being one of those kind of play action type quarterback so you you got to obviously be accurate over the middle of the field especially in the intermediate area but he also is very very good. And I think this factors into for discussion yet earlier. On what San Francisco do if anything. They'RE NOT GONNA they're not GONNA do anything. Everybody's so this massive waste of time but He's really good at placing seeing the ball where receivers can get yards after catch right. Yeah how many times have we seen Emmanuel Sanders or Kendrick born whoever Catch like a seven yard slann turn into twelve and so he deserves a ton of credit for that but he's added pressure. I I I just. I don't think how you can deny that. That's like a massive ding on his ability..
"chiefs" Discussed on Nickel Package
"Marathon fueling the American spirit. All Right Mike so in lieu of mailbag this week doc we're going to recap our NFL season draft you wan- you WanNa buy a lot. which makes me think Irene? I need to Redo my points. Well Yeah and we'll get into why even I think it sort of nonsensical I did pick the two teams that represented in the Super Bowl. So there was a hefty reward for that. But would you had eight playoff teams that you picked. You took the niners like twelve to or something like you debt. That worked out for you big time time but your first pick was the chiefs which was great pick. So I'm just GonNa read them. You went chiefs rams colts charger. His bears ears win this vikings cowboys. jags Falcons your team sucks. Texans niners Redskins broncos bengals raiders cardinals. You absolutely should not have won this. My point system sucks. Listen you can. You can blame yourself all you want. You went now that you've made it like this. I am going to gloat I whooped. Gerasimus thing I- Patriots Eagles. I was well higher than the eagles than it should have been saints. Packers Pick pick four playoff teams right off the bat so I can't talk that much browns-steelers which didn't work out feelers could have seen panthers seahawks Ravens. Titans Lions jets bills. I got lucky I pick them late. That was my lucky team and then the bucks giants Dolphins Dolphins. I mean the Ravens. Were kind of your lucky team to you. Pick them like tenth. That's true so I have. How many of the playoff teams eight eight I picked four? You picked eight. I just happened to pick the two super bowl. Teams should not have won this. which are the teams? Are you looking at your squad right. Yeah which are the teams. Do you feel the most embarrassed about drafting and why the most embarrassed. Probably the bears. Just because I didn't have any confidence in them going into the season and I let everyone else talk me into them like I went into that season very very questionable about Patrick mahomes what he was capable of based on what we saw but I let the sex appeal of that defense lawyer men and so I picked over Vikings team that I think I thought was veteran interim picked to win that division great defensive regress man and I think brings us to the niners in some way because as we do it is for next year. Chiesa niners are favored to come back. Which I think is fair? I picked the chiefs to win the Super Bowl next year. I just think as long As Pat Mahomes are an Andy. Reid are in place you cannot pick against the chiefs. Is that silly no. I don't think so. I pointed this out to people like it wasn't like the chiefs were bad before they got pat like they've won double digit games for the last five years. They were doing it with Alex Smith and a bunch of different parts around him on this team team. They've done it with now. Three different offensive coordinators like this is a competent organization with a head coach in their star quarterback that are on the same page. Hell Yeah I bet that team so going into next year they they're GONNA pay mahomes. What what are we looking at? Like forty year forty s can be silly only the structure that because it's going to be early of course Chris. Jones is a free agent. And we'll talk like I said we'll talk about him shortly. What we saw him Kendall Fuller and religion are up for deal? So they're gonNA have to rebuild or pay that secondary both side from. I'm not they're pretty much. Set their set on offense at least a lot of young talent especially their skill town. You know the Sammy. Watkins thing that weird quote from him about you know maybe you just taking next season offer. Yeah Sammy Watkins. By the way. Just like Gamer post-season huge Gamer. That being said if he's going to take the year off I think he can save like fourteen million dollars cutting really. I mean it's just play to a contract. I'll take your off. Jeez yeah if ETA money yeah absolutely unless I I'd be fascinated. He really does decide to take a year off like it's not unprecedented. We've seen other guys do it by by the way since we're kind of move into the niners defense but I don't want to leave the Senate dress because this morning I was looking at The niners defense and I was looking at Richard Sherman and trying to see who they had him covering and he got burnt by Sammy on that. which you don't people not only only two people generally not throw in the direction of Richard Sherman? They usually don't throw that particular route which is kind of interesting to see Usually you WANNA get them inside but What he did a pretty nice job with Kelsey game we kind of plays into what term skills? That's always been right. Big Long strider rider. Like a guy that can certainly physically lengthwise match up. And I think that's why Sammy was kind of a problem because at the line. When you've got that sort of quickness we saw what it did I mean they were given tyreek Hill? I think somewhere like six and a half yards. which is the most any worse? Gotten all postseason cushion wise And obviously tyree ate a lot the niners on the other hand just to look forward again nerd the other. I think it goes it's chiefs in the niners. I WANNA WANNA see this saints might be the number three favorites return. I don't have the odds in front of me but the niners don't have a ton of free agents. Eric Armstead jumps out Jimmy Ward. But they also don't have a ton of draft picks going into this season. How do you feel about their chances next year? I think I feel pretty good for a lot of the same reasons right like because all that talent is going to make it way back and then offensively. We've made the joke that Kyle Shanahan probably their best player all year deebo Samuel really started to shine. What's Emmanuel Sanders contract situation? I know they brought him over on the trade season. I think he's got a year left. So that's still a guy because if you if you telling me you've got Emmanuel Sanders and Deebo Samuel as the basis of your wide receiver core deebo Samuel the lead all. NFL wide receivers rushing during the regular season. Like that's pretty solid unit to go with. He's a free agent allow. That is interesting thing obviously kettle. They gotta pay him the hot topic. You know this week has been. Do you wrote Jimmy. Just because the nature of his contract You can move on for him so easily. I don't think it makes sense. Not Not because I my Jimmy Garoppolo Truth and I think he's better than everyone thinks or whatnot because I just don't think they have a better alternative. I think this is going to be something. It's going to really inflict of quarterback discussion. I think all off season is this time of year. Everyone's like oh you got to move on and WHO's out there. Whatever at the end of the day a lot of guys are just GonNa go back to their team? I think we're overstating the amount of movement and the you know free agents who are available and that kind of thing like Teddy Bridgewater really a massive upgrade from Jimmy Garoppolo. I don't don't really think so. You're not buying in with the heartache. That the Bill Barnwell that you clearly wanted on this podcast today espoused on company the other night saying on the SPN daily. I Yeah I listen. I had to try and hurt you the way you hurt me okay. I'm calling him. Skip Barnwell now. Baylor said the same take and they play the audio on did up this morning you know none of the truly nece really came across. I think I got God. God bless bill for feeding feeding the Sports Talk Machine for twenty four hours that we needed that bill made a good point. which is that you know basically basically transitions us back to the game when it counted? Jimmy just couldn't hit the open guy under pressure right. I mean he wasn't wasn't asked being asked to make these like insane. Out of pocket plays he was being asked to pass the ball to an open wide or case tight end really twice and then receiver Emmanuel Sanders under some degree of pressure. And could do it. He was overthrowing a lot in the fourth quarter and bill. I think pointed out for all. Brady's these limitations at his age that is something he can do. No absolutely I was a I. I can talk my way into it. especially if there's an idea that there's a quarterback somewhere in this draft that Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch and the niners were in love with because if you were to bring in some sort of aging veteran who could fill in that spot for a couple years ears and then secure the bridge program with a guy that you in theory like better than Jimmy Garoppolo. There's some room for that in my brain. But I'm kind of with you. When it comes to the quarterback carousel for this off season? I think by and large with the exception of like Philip rivers and Jameis Winston. Most of the guys are GonNa end up staying put. I think Phil wherever it was going to retire. I don't know why I just don't none of the destinations make sense for him. I think Tennessee would have been the one and I think they're gonNA they're gonna all right. Let's take a quick break and then get back to the game between hitting the gym eating cleaner or learning a new skill. There are a lot of ways we can better ourselves in the new year..
"chiefs" Discussed on Nickel Package
"And how the teams assembled and then the other is about scheme And I think they are into related like I said schematically. The niners didn't really change what they did it. All Robert Sell. It didn't change what he did on the other side of the ball you saw I think chiefs this defense. That kind of did start changing. Some of the things they were doing as the game went on a few really fascinating adjustments in the fourth quarter with talk about that But this this niners defense and one of the things that she did Mike was. They started giving their offensive line help. That was a really until we'll partway through the third quarter when they started chipping. And that's by the way when I would've started moving Bosa inside a little bit more and play more games But by and large the niners I didn't really do anything different and I think what you saw in the fourth quarter was a secondary that had been bolstered by the pass rush all season long and at the end of the day. Like wasn't as good as the front seven now. And we talk about how those things are so inextricably linked and really. You can kind of go back to the last last year in this one. Because we've talked so much about Nick Bosa kind of being that sort of skeleton key that unlock the potential of this entire group. Because remember. We're not that far from Robert Salad. Being a guy who people were calling for his job right. Yeah that was not that long ago in the recent past and when you mentioned the inability to adjust in certain situations like that and the idea of just letting your great players go out and just out great everybody else. I immediately thought Mike McCarthy and would eventually wrote him out of town in Green Bay and Scotland and what eventually was his death knell in in Dallas. which was this idea that we have better players than you and so we're just going to roll the ball out and let our better players do their thing and all this like you said Ed? It's the fine line you get to when you get great on great at the Super Bowl level at the conference championship level of saying. Am I going to adjust for the opponent or am I going to impose my will and I think the the best do some version of both Allah. What you just mentioned what the chiefs like? They're not a team. That gives a line a ton of help during the regular season because of the guys they've got there but once you started seeing move the pocket throws once you started seeing a little bit more help for their tackles. They've been used to seeing on that when you went. Okay Andy. Reid is willing to swallow his pride. And say we've got to deal with something abnormal normal year. Frankly those are the things I thought they should have done earlier in the game. I was texting you about that as well. But yeah he made those adjustments and in defense of the niners owners. I think kind of cuts to what I was saying there is yes there you could say. Well maybe they should of move Bosa inside more but then you know you're I think they're very concerned about containing homes right outside and you can say well. Maybe they should have played a little bit more man or mix things up but they might not have the horses to do it and not I think cuts to this team was built and How there maybe weaknesses? That were masked at times by the fact that they had leads they weren't I wasn't a big. They didn't have to rush the passer. You know a ton in the fourth quarter bill Barnwell mentioned. He said this the week before the Super Bowl he was one of the few people appointed out that the niners pass rush was actually struggling in the fourth quarter during the regular season. Just wasn't an issue very often and then it became an issue in this game. I I I don't know like I in terms of bigger picture takeaways about this defense and whether this style of defense can succeed I this is something I want to think through more because you know Chris. Simms pointed out that the Seattle style defense now has given up leads in fourth quarters in a few super bowls. There's the one we shall not speak of involving New England. There's this one there's the Atlanta one and you do wonder like. Hey maybe can't like maybe the style of defensive cover three with a you know it's so contingent on talent talent winning and that pass rush getting home at the end. Maybe that's just not built for super bowls unless you really truly have elite talent at every level. Yeah I I think they're certainly something to that given the historical context but I think on the other side. We also have to probably give a little bit of credence to the fact that you song uncommon performance. Right we acknowledged that Patrick mahomes might be the most talented quarterback we've seen in God knows how long like pure talent wise since Marino. So maybe an Aaron Rodgers s kind of guy so at some point someone else's better and doing the thing that he had done well all year like Patrick Mahomes with his back against the wall. Third and fifteen plus had been one of the most consistent commodities all year I think his passer rating on third and fifteen plus throws. This season was ninety. Nine point nine nine. All their quarterbacks combined were four point seven so stupid thirteen for seventeen is being insensitive thirteen for seventeen on third and fifteen. That's so stupid and six of those went for first downs or touchdowns. Well the third fifteen play I I do want because I was kind of a turning point in this game I went back and watched. I mean it's just it's so beautiful. It's a perfect cover three beater but and that but you can say that. Yeah sure you know oh Move the safety or freezes a quarterback and then Tari will be right there and run run a corner but you have to every every single person involved has to esque execute that perfectly right. It's not just mahomes placing the ball or hill shaking off Jimi Ward and then running the perfect route I think it was Sammy. Watkins who froze Moseley. I WANNA say Kelsey ran the deep crosser. It was something Patrick Mahomes. I think told Andy Reid. He wanted to run when the game was on the line. I believe I read that somewhere. Probably something you always here after a great slave superbowl no but it was like you said sort of the benefit of taking breath. You hear all these stories now about how mahomes came to this item item. They had run a version of that play earlier and he correct he added something or tag something on tiree kills route that they saw earlier and adjusted to. So those are the kind of things is that we always go. You know kind of gloss over with home because the arm talent and everything else is so gifted like he saw enough in conjunction with Andy Reid to go ahead and be a part of that conversation. Do you think nick. Bosa was held on that play on south of me no holding a hoax. Don't don't let the liberal media. You sell you on that one there. This is so little holding college right in this. There's no holding right. I want to say there is no offense holes in the Super Bowl and this is one of the cleanest is football games overall. That's why it felt like it was over. I mean it was over in like three and a half hours the by the way. I think that if I'm a niners fan I'm angrier about this. Hold the nope yeah. I've watched it a few times. I think either way I'm not saying I. I think both of them by the way can go either way. They're OPIE I. It's more just about precedent and like they didn't call against Rudolf. Whatever you know all that stuff You'd be angry about that but I think ultimately did it like but but and that's it I understand why annoyed because it's something they haven't called withhold. It's I can I. I would understand if I was if I was especially because it was literally the entire game hinged on on this play but then if they called it wolf what yeah. That's the thing it's one. It's one of those moments where I think more often than not and I understand the game should be legislated the same from start to finish certainly all those things and especially when it's clear and obvious put an instance were it's right on the edge like that and you could go fifty fifty. There is part of me that still says. Let the guys Mayfield handle it. Do you think Patrick Mahomes should have been the MVP in this game. You know what I had this back and forth with dad and trae on the show and I said yes and I understand the argument. Even for Damian Williams of consistency throughout the game was not mine. That's not Oh really okay. Oh so who picked. Let's tell me what you're gonNA say I well I still Jose like it again. It's whatever you mean for. MVP like if we remove the performance of Patrick Mahomes in the moments that it mattered. The most than the chiefs are not winning this game. Like what he he did was so extraordinary in a short period of time and I get it. The first of the game was what the rest of the game was but to be able to turn it on like that. I just feel like that's the performance formats that will be remembered. That's the performance that defined the game. So it should be the MVP performance Kevin Cole. PF made a great great point to me. Because I afterwards yesterday I tweeted a something about how the big box score lie. Let me get the exact numbers is that and Mahomes didn't he only ran for twenty nine yards right because of the kneel down actually ran for forty four and those runs in particular works huge huge he all of his runs were like critical conversions. Or you know high. EPA runs. And I think those can be ignored when you're looking at his statistics in this game like the first in it. Also that's what the niners defense was giving him at certain points and he took cook it and when above and beyond with it and I think it Kevin pointed out. That's why he thought you know you have to count those and then the MVP case becomes a lot clearer. And I think that's completely valid. I mean he's as fourth quarter. Statistics are also hilarious but to me the counter to Mahomes. I'm not saying he would on it. But this would have been my one B to mahomes one eight. Potentially it would've been Chris Jones. Who was an on that note? Let's let's take a quick break. Let's talk about our playoff playoff draft and and then after the break. Let's talk about the chiefs defense in the niners offense in Kyle Shanahan and how we feel about the collapse but first let's take. You could be headed to a game or going on.

"She cares best song as she wolf for obvious reasons. Actually that might be to people today because Michael Junior I here. You're also a big fan. She Wolf was the song that defined training Camp Circa Fall. Two Thousand Twelve for a young Michael Junior in the Notre Tame offense of line. It's clearly a lesser banger. Although we'll say watching the halftime show I was struck by how many bankers share has training Subaru Fra and backing out. But I'm GONNA say it. Hurt Uber is really impressive. It is remarkable. And you're right. I think the catalog. I was surprised that she dog on that one and that she was going so long before we ever saw Jennifer Lopez. But like you said when you're discography is that full of certified slappers. I think were big. We're understanding why we'll speaking of lead dogs Lenny's here with me back in Los Angeles. It's been a couple of days actually. I'm glad we're doing this today. Mike not just because my brain is no longer certified mush but I've also had a couple of days is to process the Super Bowl. Think through kind of what we saw what it means what might happen next year so today. We're GonNa talk just fully about that and then at the end of the show you know what actually in the middle of the show we're going to recap our team eighteen draft that you and I did. What do we do this? It was August August naturally before the season so before the season Mike and I drafted teams based on You know whether we thought they get into the playoffs far they'd go Yada Yada so we're going to review that Just to sum it up. I'll say mistakes were made. Yeah that's probably pretty accurate. Although I won't be surprised me I don't WanNa spoil anything yet and while I felt good about my overall performance I gotta say the depth of your success was impressive. We'll talk about that. We're going to that instead of a mailbag today. Thank you so much as always for leaving your questions in my itunes reviews. But we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA hit hold on that because well it's a long off-season off season Fox so there's a lot of time to discuss all of that but first we're going to start off by talking about this game and my notes from the game. Mike are Basically organized into. There's three quarters and then there's one quarter because it was really two different football game so I thought it might be useful to talk about chronologically. The Guy Start with the first three orders through three and a half quarters through the first three quarters of this game what. What was the most surprising thing to you about what you sell? I think that probably the pass rush of the forty niners and we knew it would be successful Asheville but there's being successful and then there's rattling the guy that's the best player in football and I think there's a clear difference and we saw all right in what was the strength on strength matchup of the gained Kansas City offense in the niners defense. It was such a clear fight near you and I and Dan Orlovsky. We're all texting a lot during the game and this was the worst that Patrick Mahomes at looked in quite some time through the first like you said three and a half quarters of this and I think that was the most shocking part to me was. He looked downright bad. Yeah I asked you guys. If he's it was hurt which I I don't think he was her right and we haven't even heard anything but the ball just looks so weird coming out of his hand and he was. I don't think I've seen him bounce passes like that two guys were open and then he was also throwing guys were an open. He threw what I think is probably the worst interception of his career had a little back and forth with teddy my friend Tedy Bruschi during the game about that because he was like. No I mean water made an amazing play and it's undeniably true but And I and of course pat had pressure bearing down on him. But if you look at if you look at go back and look at it. Look at the taught you can see it's not like the dont`a hightower interception interception from last year. We're hightower it was. It was strategic. Right he baited into it and then back. It was like a disguised coverage like there was nothing disguised about this. He just staring down sort of. I was just bizarre even with the pass rush coming but I think the pass rush as you said is the key element of this like he owns. Homes is played under that sort of pressure before and his pressure numbers. I think are always a little bit skewed by how long he holds onto the football. But I don't think think I've seen when the pocket collapses like it did in the first three quarters of the game I don't think I've ever seen in. Bruce Spun that way to pressure. No and I also think yes. He's dealt dealt with pressure before. But I think pro football focus counting Nick Bosa had twelve pressures in that game. That's he was so good by the way through the first three quarters. I know you're seeing deebo Samuel Jimmy. It really should have been a hundred one hundred percent. I was the one arguing for Deebo Samuel but then I heard that statistic he ate Eric Fisher launched the entire day. That that was as one-sided a battle as you'll see the entire postseason I actually let's I want to talk about that 'cause more sort of bleeding into the fourth quarter a little bit Pass rush had so much success in the first three quarters and then I think you saw later on in the game mahomes mahomes stepping up a little bit successfully and at times breaking off scrambles to right and it wasn't like he was getting flushed like he you saw the mahomes usually see whereas pocket move in so spectacular and he was stepping up and I was Kinda surprised they didn't move more inside as the game went on on and kind of moved him across the offensive line as he was stepping up. Like that. Because you know I think that was sort of this story of the defense. They kind of just came came to the party with the girl they brise the expression. They did what they've done all year. Right they played cover three and a little bit a man early on not a ton They they rushed for. It wasn't like a ton of listening and then it all just stopped working at some point. Yeah and I think it's interesting to start to look at the reason why for that and and I heard our friend Dan Orlovsky getting into it with a couple of guys on get up. I forget if it this morning in the morning before and I think it was Bart Scott who brought up the idea of been a defender in that moment where they've finally started to turn it on in the fourth quarter because we also saw in addition to mahomes scrambling which is going to create more running for the defensive lineman women you saw them use a little bit more tempo. Obviously you're down in the Super Bowl and trying to make your way back and then was such a quick turn around there. You saw Richard Sherman and others. There were hands on hips. There's there's clear signs of fatigue in that moment and so I think that tempo in that spot really stressed that defense in a way that they hadn't been all night. Let's say well all right. I've thrown run out my structure time on the first. Of course I think what the first three quarters of what we saw from. This defense clearly plays into the final final quarter and I think where they struggle and as you mentioned they looked. Guess like because the first three quarters. So the chiefs come out and clearly andy. Reid wants a quick passing. Game came to neutralize the niners. Pass rush from the job right. They were running the ball. I drive It was like a couple of pitchers and screens homes was off by the way But the Niners de devens typically gives you the underneath stuff and that's what the chiefs were taking for the first three quarters but they've got really really fast guys throwing it to running backs you know in the Backfield as as well and that's tiring Patrick mahomes running around like that. Pass rushers having to chase after him. That's tiring okay and at a certain point. If you don't have a deep defensive line where you can just kind of rotate is in and out like the eagles famously did In the super the against the Patriots Right. They had that incredibly deep defensive line. Those guys are going to be exhausted and I think that was one of my biggest errors bill going going into this game while bill. Wow Wow wow you know what how. Jeez do you want me to leave. Well Bill Online. This is never. This never happened before no no. I'm sure it's not me it's you. It's whatever okay so Mike I. I didn't think at all about the lack of depth on this niners defensive line and there were there were tons of injuries right like I mentioned earlier. Dj Jones is a guy who was very good during the regular season. Who was he was Roger? Rock Super Bowl rightly as good as this niners. Defensive Line was as great as that standard press Russia's been once they were all healthy even getting defor for back there pretty thin and I think that ultimately ended up being the difference in the game for them. Yeah and I think you also remember like what the demands are. We talk about this all the time. It is so difficult for offensive lines to pass protect thirty forty times game. mahomes had forty two attempts in the game. You are just as demanding. That's why we see D. Lineman tapping their helmet helmet all the time the lesser athletes on the field. Trying to go against the five linemen. They'd have to stay out there the entire time but it was interesting to see that war of attrition. And you're right it leads directly to the moment that's like the most hotly contested of this game right like we tend to boil this down to a couple of key moments but one of them is the drive that helped directly contribute to this and the war being waged on either side is. Is there a disagreement in or an obligation. I guess to the offense of play car to have that in mind when you get to a critical juncture like this are you talking about the Tyreek Hill Pass right because it feels like there's to place that everyone's talking about one is the second in five George Kill really should be the third and five as well and then the other is the third and fifteen to tyreek hill. I'm talking about the the second and five the sequence to run first down and then pass the next two downs that everyone seems to be going back and forth on so much and then being a quick out your defense getting back onto the field etc.. I WanNa talk about that. That's a good point. I want to talk about that. Talk about the Niner's offense and and that really is a debate about Kyle. Shanahan Jimmy Garoppolo. And that's that's kind of been the big hot topic on the show this right But before we because I still WanNa talk about this niners defense defense and what happened in the fourth quarter because everyone gives Kashan hence so much crap for defend his team's collapsing in the super ables. But it's just as much on the defensive we just don't talk about right and You Know Patrick. Mahomes scored back to back in certainly in Atlanta and work call Shannon. Didn't even coach defense offense But being head coach and San Francisco Mahomes has back to back to back touchdowns right back to bike ride yesterday. And I think there's a there's two things you you're not seeing this on the debate shows. Nobody's really talking about that side of things. I think there are two debatable topics fix and one is about team building..

"Am nicer possibly in every other person on this network to that guy that guy because I believe using ninth best quarterback in the League. You'll believe that city one day here is the issue when I did the accounting counting. Add up the names of these ninth. He was atrocious. He was atrocious in that whole fourth quarter. He was atrocious on that last potentially game winning drive Dr. He was atrocious with Emmanuel Sanders. Open down the field. He was atrocious when he threw interception in the first half with his eyes closed all of that. That is really hard for me to spin. But but here's the Spin Kyle. Shanahan is the guy calling the plays as Kyle Shanahan is the guy who is running this team Jimmy. Garoppolo is not the guy playing defense. So give me Shanahan's head on a pike for what I saw last night. I want you guys to know the strategy that he used. Apparently he's been actually eight mile and he's like I'm going to say everything bad about Jimmy Garoppolo before four Bomani can right. How wack is that? He's GonNa get out here every week. Rodford is due when the only thing you really know about him is that he's handsome and you go ride this all the way Out and then when the time comes you need. Somehow you were going to take the joy away from me from looking at you and say everything. I told you all season long as to why they wouldn't win. The Super Bowl with that do happen in that game and guess what he looked like that same dude all the way through the playoffs. He didn't come in here. Is Show you anything new. This this is what he was in fact he might have played better in this game that he played in any other game in the playoffs in college. Shanahan was there to watch all that Shanahan had all that. Fill in cowshed ahead still put the game into dead detains at a time where he did not have to. So who gets the blame. The answer is all love them. Get the blame. I don't I know why by the way you do set up here Friday and talked about how Shanahan was such genius genius at work right there in this situation. What here's why? This conversation is so hard for me beyond the fact that I have vomited by daddy three degrees a wrong. No it's because one game name. This is what we're talking about Kyle. Shanahan man he is a genius he also completely believe that off ever done this before. Why are you talking about this game? He's never done this more. He's never basically bottled this same level so he has never followed this same saying that Kyle Shanahan should no longer be. He regarded as offensive coaching gene. Saying I'd never regarded him as wanted all the only person who did that is. It's not just me. It's the fact that he built a system that that acknowledges addresses the limitations of Jimmy Garoppolo which by the way I also address. I also address those things. Oh you don't you you address. Arrest them just long enough to be like but he had a good game against the saints but he had a great game against the Saint and on top of that Bomani he is what he is twenty. Eight years is old Okay so not super young hearts are you trying to talk about the future of him of course because he has started as many games as Sam Darnold has both so he is is not a finished product. The Jimmy Garoppolo can still get better serious. You write about that really trying to talk about. Weather's do like he's twenty two years old and fresh face and everything else. How long has he been in the league? Like it's not like he just got here for college. How long has he been? He's been in situations to develop in to improve improve and this is as good as he is right now because the dude is just not that good. Sometimes there's a reason to do is drafted in the third round. There's a reason why do being a backup for raw tom right because if somebody really saw dude that was a first class takeover your franchise kind of guy you can trade that and give more than a second round. Pick look man. They are a quarterback away from being able to win the Super Bowl thing. Just Mavis right. Hey we lost in their quarterback.

"Seasons as a starter starter. So what did you think of his performance. He was for three and a half quarters. Worse than Jimmy Garoppolo and then when he became Pamela homes. And that's the sort of thing about this guy. He has in three straight playoff. Game scored forty one unanswered. Twenty eight eight unanswered and then twenty one unanswered and for all of the doubts. I had early because this did seem like the worst game I'd ever seen in play. He never got less terrifying which might be the Ultimate Testament to Pat Mahoney. I mean this was the worst game that I have seen him play in in the worst game you could see him play he can make that throw right there. The thing about him is distressed. That's on defense at all times with him. 'cause you're not as worried about some kind of surgical level of precision. You're worried about them. Taking the top off the defense you gotta worry about the fact that he can get outside. The forty niners got plenty heat autumn but he always able to break contain so many times with the forty. Niners you go through this season. Russell Wilson Column in the Mark Jackson Jackson. Those guys did alright against their forty niners. Defense if you could get outside that pass then you had a chance and Mahomes can do that aside from having that rocket on. So yeah for three quarters it did not look good for what didn't change is he still they do and he is stronger than I gave them. Credit for that might be the whole lesson from this postseason because we saw that run against the titans. I think it was where it's sort of like. How is he doing any of this? But in this game we saw Nick Bosa get hands on him and he just remained upright so the idea of him being mobile and sturdy as well as being able to have this intercontinental SORTA range. I mean to me. He's the face of the NFL. With the caveat which is simply the people people outside the game appreciate what they will now. You just got here right like he's give that a little bit of time in that part gets taken care of and Dominic Foxworth made an interesting point because you look at Mahomes and the question question is. Where's the whole year right? Like where's the flaw. He found the one flaw. And this is bananas. He's the rare dude who gets worse when using play action right so you look at the quarterback the decided almost entirely definitive plan to make things easier. Dominates this dude may actually find that to be too easy. That's the only thing that he's not really good at everything else. He's checking every box that you could ask. And it also feels like when his back is against the wall as much as this sounds like a cliche about to say when he just needs to throw it. He's pretty pretty. Much unstoppable interviews. Saying as much of this is like a cliche. It's a cliche but it's true. That's the magic of Pat Mahomes but up next is Andy Reid for whom. The twenty-first season is the char read entered last night with the most playoff wins by head. Coach would never won a super bowl but his plans after last night included eating the biggest cheeseburger you've ever seen and listening to pit bull. And when asked if he spent the night with the trophy read said that he spent it with his trophy wife. Life which goals Bomani read is the field. Good Super Bowl story today. So how do you feel for him. Look at everybody around him seems to feel oh good for him. Everybody in Philadelphia seems to feel good for him all the former players. They all seem to be in the same boat so good for him. In that regard I also have to remember this about Andy Read. We're not at a point where this does not matter anymore due to draft Don mcnabb in nineteen ninety nine. This is the do the handed his offense over to Michael Vick was he gets out of prison. And then the guy that makes the call go ahead. I didn't do this or Patrick. mahomes black quarterback still got a whole lot of shrubs. They have to go through in terms of procession. Andy Reid has looked at countless dudes. have been like yeah. You look like you can run my offense. What did they let him? This and it feels bad that this is required for us to officially discuss Andy. Reid is one of the greats but that is how this all works. That's how our business works. We just went through this exercise with Kobe. Bryant you shrink down. Someone's life over and over again to a sentence and even though this guy is top seven and career career regular season wins and top seven career playoff wins and has a coaching tree with ten former assistants. Who became head coaches and all of the offensive vision? That you describe Bob. It's that line super bowl champion. That eluded him and now it's the one that he's GonNa lead with for the rest of it but I think that's fair. Though for him where he was he was in a class. A very good coaches right. So you take a guy like Marty Schottenheimer. Who's really got a very similar? Set up to Andy Reid except for like the playoff wins down the line. But why are you schottenheimer. Two losing seasons. It's all time really really really good coach. But that's a tear or two below your bill checks Shula's and those sorts of dudes that are up. There Wall types right with the championship. If for example he got into the Super Bowl one time prior to this this was a significant hurdle for here to clear like does it make him into a different person but it did show improve the way that he had not and no more clock. Jokes folks you yourself now to Kyle Shanahan the second time in four years Shanahan called off as a place for a team. That blue hued fourth quarter leads leads at Super Bowl. This Shanahan had to answer for his decision to play it safe at the end of the first half planned to go into halftime tied and abandoning the run in the fourth quarter when eleven. Eleven of the niners fifteen plays passes now. One of my thing quarterback who's been paid sixty one million dollars over three years you'll be able to handle such responsibility but Jimmy Garoppolo was three or four eleven thirty six yards and an interception that quarter Pablo who deserves more blame. The coach making decisions or the quarterback couldn't get it done. I.

"Circuitry. The last time Kyle Shanahan was in the Super Bowl. He was the offensive coordinator coordinator of the Falcons. And of course blue that twenty eight to three lead against the Patriots and now as the head coach the forty niners. You could say he's blown twenty two ten in lead in the fourth quarter. Is this a big knock against him. You know it's definitely something that's going to stay with him for a while. That falcons loss when cow's Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for that team in the Super Bowl that blew the twenty eight to three lead. To the Patriots that Falcons lost still sits with him. He still thinks about that and he talks about that a lot. So this is a rough one to swallow man you know. They gave up twenty one unanswered points to the chiefs in the fourth quarter when the chiefs looked all but dead they were in complete complete disarray. So yeah this is going to be one that Kyle Shanahan is definitely going to be thinking about during this very long off season and going back to Jimmy Garoppolo you know. He did have a good game like you said but he didn't deliver in the clutch. Is that GonNa be a big blake on his reputation you know. I think that's kind of unfair if it is again this was a forty niners. Did it need Jimmy Garoppolo to be the star quarterback to the level of Patrick Mahomes but he was absolutely outperforming. Patrick Mahomes for the first three quarters of this game and the only reason that the niners were in the position that they were was very very much. Because of what Jimmy Garoppolo had been doing In the in the earlier to mid parts of this game so I think that after the dust settles after maybe some forty niners honors fans have have time to process this loss. They should be a little bit. Kinder to Jimmy Garoppolo. I think it's a little unfair if this is placed squarely on his shoulders and looking at the chiefs all year if this is a dynasty in the making you know if if these guys are the heirs apparent to the Patriots does this feel like a step pinette direction it absolutely does. I think it felt like that when the chiefs made it to the Super Bowl in the first place especially after not making it in heartbreaking fashion last year but You know with the Patriots Dynasty declared over by a lot of experts With Tom Brady. Entering Free Agency and teams. Seems like the raiders. Apparently being interested in him. it really does feel like a sea change in the AFC and if not the whole league there was this interesting moment. I'm in the pre game when bill on the field and he's kind of flexing on the rest of the League right. He's got his multiple Super Bowl rings on but it really does feel like maybe a changing. The guard is happening right now. This is also a chief team. Patrick Mahomes is so young and has accomplished so much in just two full seasons as a starter order in the NFL where he's already won a league MVP a super bowl MVP and a super bowl ring. So there's a lot in store for the future of this kid kid for the future of this team and for the core of achieves team that is set to play together for a few years I think everyone else in the. AFC should be a little bit scared about what they're able to build here. And there's been a lot of talk about Andy Reid and his legacy and you know whether or not he needed to win a super bowl to be considered an all time. Great but I guess he doesn't need to worry about that debate anymore. Yeah you know. I don't know if Andy Reid actually needed to win. A Super Bowl as head coach because his legacy is already so strong you know he had actually already super bowl. Technically with the Green Bay packers in the ninety six ninety seven season As an assistant head coach for that team under Mike Holmgren is team but it always helps right it always cements the legacy. He is so respected. He had twenty one very strong years as head coach in the NFL. And you just Kinda. I liked to see a guy like Andy Reid. Finally when one finally be able to hoist that trophy and say that that that one's his and apparently you met some fans sounds from Philadelphia who came all the way to the game. Yeah that was super interesting you know. I Know Eagles fans who have either love hate relationship with Andy Reid so I saw these two these two people a couple in In Eagles Jerseys and I just wanted to know if they were there rooting for or against Andy. How did you WANNA make the trip all the way out here without your team? The super bowl is the Andes here and he's here. Who Do you think is going to win this game and Eating Candy and and we talked on the show the other day about how Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes are such a match made in heaven how they literally complete each other's sentences they were totally loving on each other in the post game interview? Love this guy right here and all those guys that came before love you man appreciate it every bit of it. What's magical about you guys? Work together I mean we never lost state and we believe in each other and that's the way priest all year long and we got this guy right here to get us here and they found the way to get in on good heart's racing all research and I mean it's hard not to be really happy for these two guys. Yeah we listen. Listen Patrick Mahomes is a kid and Andy Reid is not and he. You know very much the elder statesman or the father figure every WANNA put it. Andy Redrafted Patrick. Mahomes and key gave him time to thrive under his system So this is a really beautiful relationship to see blossom and hey I'm always I'm always down for a good bromance right. And last week could beat the chiefs fans have been waiting fifty years for this moment. What did they have to say to you after after the game? Before and after the game a lot of the chiefs fans that I talked to you said this is fifty years in the making one of the reasons that they believe. They outnumbered the niners fans in Miami was because they have had fifty years to wait on this moment and it was all the more sweeter when it actually happened because of how it happened happened because of this incredible comeback and because of how long they've waited for this moment to happen nine talk to fans who were crying and hugging and they were with their families and they talked about their family members. Who who saw that first super bowl fifty years ago and now they have this one to hang their hat on and this super bowl forever for? We'll be there's can't believe it I'm shocked and you know we came back and waste went up toes we've been season ticket holders for twenty years. I can't describe it it's just It's you couldn't ask for that. We got to see that trophy. Welcome the ledger able to experience this incredible game firsthand and safe travels back to La.

"To throw twice they only eat about twenty seconds off the clock at that point and for a team that was so good at clock management throughout this game for that. What kind of a call to be made on that particular drivers is really kind of questionable but You Know Chris Jones tips one of the passes on second and five and it's at that point that the stadium got louder than I heard it all night. It was at that point really that chiefs fans knew if they make this stop on third and five. They're going to get the ball right back. Patrick mahomes hands with the momentum on their side and have a real shot at coming back in this game and the chiefs do get the ball back march down the field and at this point it really just feels inevitable that they're gonNA score again and and they do that. Dr Ends with Damian Williams play where his Togo's Outta bounds right as the ball crosses the plane of the goal line. That right foot comes out of bounds. Where's the ball? And then there's a long video review the play the ruling on the field stand Kansas City officially on talk. Was this the right call. Yeah you know. That's a really hard question. Shen to answer from the replays that we saw in the stadium. It really did look like Damian Williams without literally by toenail ever slow slightly. But that's really not enough to overturn a call. That's made on the field and I'm just GonNa say you know it's really hard to get a rough to take away six points in the super bowl in the fourth quarter. So you know if I'm a niners fan. I'm I'm mad at that if I'm a chief's Fan I'm saying. Hey them's the breaks all right. So then it's twenty four twenty chiefs and the stage is set for Jimmy Garoppolo. And this is the big question on Jimmy Garoppolo drive down the field and score when it really counts announce and at first things are looking pretty. Good Yeah I mean. Let's also keep in mind that Jimmy Garoppolo for the entire first three quarters of his game. mm-hmm absolutely outplayed. Patrick Mahomes and that is a sentence. I don't think I ever expected to say this. Is You know Jimmy. Garoppolo through eight passes total in his last playoff game. So you know he really had been getting it done Up until this point now to start this Dr. They're coming out of the two minute warning from their own. Thirty five second and seven. Jimmy Garoppolo completes a huge passed a Kendrick born for sixteen yards. Now they're at the Kansas City forty nine and you're thinking man really like another huge play from Jimmy. Garoppolo could mount yet another comeback in this game and he is out of bounds near midfield the field and then there's that big third and ten play and he has Emmanuel Sanders Open Downfield Garoppolo art sanders down over but he overthrows him yet and listen we have to give Kansas. City's defense all the problems on this Dr Chris Jones with with another huge play. Another deflected pass Kendrick Fuller dives in from the side to Swat Jimmy. Garoppolo's pass away from Kendrick burned to set up third and ten and then Jimmy Garoppolo tries to go deep to Emmanuel Sanders. WHO's leading him into the end zone and just completely overthrows him? And it's a play like that where you realize. Despite how Jimmy Garoppolo had played the entire first three quarters of this game that Jimmy Garoppolo is not Patrick Mahomes and that that is a throw that you need someone like Patrick Mahomes to make right. And then the next play the forty niners don't convert on Fourth Jimmy Garoppolo get sacked and the chiefs. Get the ball back. And they get the icing on the case the second six Williams Mexico and touchstone. No Yeah Yeah Damian Williams with just the dagger through the heart at its at this point that Kansas City fans start to taste it. They know that it's real.

"All right so this was an incredibly even matchup but at the end of the day a clear. Oh you're winner emerged Jaylo well and Shakira like let's let's give her due to Yemen Jaylo whatever. She's whatever over she's taking to look and move like that at fifty you know we can all take a lesson from her and And who knew she could move on a pole. It is kind of funny that you know. So how many years. After the wardrobe malfunction we now just have performers on stripper Poles. All right so let's talk about this remarkable game I What was the vibe in the stadium before kickoff? Yeah I mean listen. It's the Super Bowl right. People are excited. I will say that there were a lot more chiefs fans then niners fans and that was kind of to be expected. That's how it's been in Miami all week I think ESPN projected before the game that it was going to be sixty seven percent Kansas the city fans which would make it the most lopsided attendance in history and it really did man. It felt like achieves home game. You had the chance and you know it was a sea of red. Obviously because both nighters and she's fans where red but but chiefs fans definitely were taking over and you could tell when they did the introductory lineups? You could tell. Whenever they they showed chiefs players are coming through the tunnel the stadium which get loud And conversely a lot of booing being whenever the camera would focus on the niners. And you know we've talked a lot in the buildup to this game this week about Kobe. Bryant he just is looming over the world of sports so largely right now now and there was a beautiful tribute to him before the game began. Yeah so there was a moment of silence before America. The beautiful and national and the national anthem were song on Four Koby daughter Jonah and the other seven victims of the helicopter crash. Sure Sunday's they will never be for each of the teams Rosters were lined up on their own twenty four yard line. No Mosh to Kobe's number twenty four as the moment of silence happened and a few players were also wearing purple and gold cleats during warmups. All right so this was expected to be a close game and the first half was incredibly. Even what jumped out at you from that first half. Yeah I mean the first half was super even obviously. We went into to the second half tied at ten The first quarter kind of gave you a setup of how this of how you thought this game was going to go you know. Both teams had strong drives early San Francisco got the running game going out of the gate with deebo Samuel But despite controlling the ball for nearly six minutes in their opening drive that drive only ends in a field goal the chiefs then come back to answer with a really strong drive heavily favoring Running back Damien Williams play action was really working for them in four achieves team. Who's WHO's running game isn't nearly as strong as San Francisco's? This was pretty key for them on that particular drive third and eleven and Patrick mahomes shows off the legs he takes off off and he appears to get the first down but then he fumbles after a hard hit pushes him back. So it's now fourth and one and Andy Reid. has this decision to make. Does he go for word on further on fourth and one it's early in the game. San Francisco's defense was the best in the league. This season on stopping fourth and one And kind of going into this game you know you don't really ever know what he's GonNa do on fourth down but he ends of going for it. And it's absolutely right call Damian Williams gets the first on a short run and Patrick mahomes eventually takes it into the end zone. Himself for the touchdown and the chiefs go up seven to three and early in the second. Quarter Jimmy Garoppolo threw an interception reception and the chiefs and up on a drive with another fourth and one and they go for it again. Yeah and it ends up being the right call again now. Let's remember that Andy. He read only went for it on fourth down ten times in the regular season and here he's gone for it twice in the first twenty minutes of the game so clearly. It's the Super Bowl. He's putting everything on the table and it ends up being the right. Call it results in points. The chiefs the cheesecake field goal. And they go up ten to three okay so at this point Jimmy. Garoppolo has just throw an interception. Forty niners are struggling a bit and it looks like they need a big drive to get back into the game and they get it they did. The the very next drive is really a statement driver San Francisco. The run game really got going. The five straight strong runs including a touchdown throw. Oh a play action pass to a very unlikely hero. Kyle used check the fullback. We got a fullback touchdown in the Super Bowl who also became the first player from Harvard? Ever to score touchdown in the Super Bowl. Alright so after half time and that incredible halftime show the forty niners. You know they really at least seem to take control of this game in that. Third Quarter third touchdown. What were they doing doing so well in that third quarter you know? They were really managing to keep the chiefs defense off balance but also that niners defense. That vaunted niners defense was is really making Patrick mahomes look all out of sorts. We had never really seen him. Look this uncomfortable in this discombobulated and that's including the previous two games in the the playoffs. where the chiefs start out slow And at some point Patrick mahomes throws an interception that was just a mental error that you do not see Patrick Mahomes make right and and then early in the fourth quarter mahomes threw a second interception halls b by the forty niners yes kaelin yarns chart various more and it really felt like at that point in the game. It's twenty to ten. It's early in the fourth quarter. They've just turned over the ball. It really felt like the game was over at that. Point was that heartfelt in the stadium it absolutely did. I was sitting next to a few writers from the Palm Beach Post and at that point one of them turns to me and he just goes. This game is over. You know this forty niners defense is making Patrick. Mahomes and the chiefs offense look like they're they're in such disarray and it was really on that drive in to start the fourth quarter that it kind of looks like the chiefs might be putting something together. You know they get to the San Francisco twenty-seven and but then get sacked that brings them back to the thirty six and then on that drive he throws another interception that slightly behind tyreek Hill Goes off his hands and into at the hands of various more. And you're thinking well the chiefs just don't have an answer for this niners defense and yet we've seen this so many times. Now mahomes mm starts to orchestrate a comeback. It's almost like this guy. Plays better when his back against the wall and his team is losing and it seemed like the turning point in this game. Aim was that long past tyreek Hill. Chiefs needs some mahomes magic. I choose down the middle get it. Kansas City to picked this is going to be talked about why was tyreek Hill. This wide open on this play but this was also just a drive. That kind of woke up tyreek Hill. who had been relatively quiet for the beginning of the game? And this was a guy that was expected to be a major playmaker game changer at wide receiver for the chiefs. But Yeah my home goes deep left for forty four yards to a wide open tyreek Hill And they ended up scoring a touchdown on that drive thanks to a pass interference call all ANA passed a Travis Kelsey in the end zone that brings the ball to the one yard line And the chiefs ended up scoring a touchdown on that on that drive and suddenly the the chiefs are only down a field goal. Twenty seventeen with six thirteen left in the fourth. Right in on the forty niners next drive They basically go three and out and have to punt the ball right back to the now red hot mahomes and the chiefs and there's some questions being asked about some of the calls that Kyle Shanahan made on that drive. Yeah I think a lot of people are wondering on second and five from their own twenty five with about five and a half minutes left in the game why they're not running the ball there and and they choose.

"Can you give us a little bit of color about what what's going on in Kansas City city right now Howard chiefs fans feeling right now. I mean they've never they've never felt this before it's fifty years. It's been fifty years years. Since the Kansas City chiefs were last in Super Bowl. It was nineteen seventy gasps. Thirty six cents a gallon and the Beatles announced that they were breaking up. Yeah it's been a long time. I mean the only thing that fans no all they know is sorrow heartbreak in like suffering to be fan is to actually suffer and the chiefs are going to go home in the postseason again. Oh for eight in the last eight post-season Games for Kansas City and that of course changed when the team hired Andy Reid. They drafted Patrick mahomes in two thousand seventeen the superstar quarterback that is the reigning. MVP Lee the trouble get to insist in starting something new which is like going back to the Super Bowl and that I think is one of the more enriching parts of this experience for the city. As a whole whether it's the Mayor Mayor Quinton or is just somebody that you know. What the local coffee official? Everyone is experiencing it the same way just because they've never seen it before. And the idea that Andy Reid May finally win the Big One. Here's a guy that's football fans there's no and I think to a large extent the American culture knows just because he's been around so long so if he wins the Super Bowl and the city does it What a way for the city to sort of experiences together along with coach that I think is already got a hall of fame resume but that will sort of solidify and put him in an echelon of coaches that? He's never obviously entered before four. So Andy Reid comes to Kansas City seven years ago. I've been in this league long time now and in particular Ed football coach the fan base here is phenomenal There's nothing like the man. There's nothing like it. What's been his impact on the chiefs? Since he took over. Oh man he changed everything everything and he got fired from Philadelphia after a long tenure. Clark hunt the owner of the chiefs was just like I will do whatever it takes for you to come. I'm changed my football team. He has complete control the Organization the General Manager Brad. Vh used to work. Under Andy Reid Philadelphia and then I think the ultimate assignment that Andy Andy Reid. was find the next great quarterback and so in two thousand seventeen that she traded a large part of their future in order to move up seventeen spots in the draft to take Patrick Mahomes ten pick in the two thousand seventeen. NFL Draft Kansas City chiefs. Select Patrick Mahomes. The second is Patrick. Mahomes the second Dr Shawn Watson. Net was the apple of the re- Dorsey I in Kansas. The city now Patrick Mahomes with someone who was considered a talented player but was not considered the best player in that draft just because he was turnover prone he played for Texas tech which is not one of the darlings of college football. This kid might not work out. I've seen this type before we've seen it and you know what I'm talking about very strong possibility. You might work out. So I'm not taking that risk here's Owned by actually bamboozling and fooling half the Li they went out and got the most talented player in the draft with the number ten pick. So what did it Andy. Reid see in Pat. Mahomes that none of these other teams did what they saw with. Someone who had elite Armstrong Flows Kansas City. Patrick Mahomes is a Chechen Patrick mahomes skin throw it put to every space on the field. If you need a seventy yard past he can throw you seventy yard pass. If you need a fifteen yard pass through defenders. He can get the ball talk to that person on time on the direct line accent. It's the second straight play. Look at the magic adjective the quarterback just out dance throws it like no look. I mean that's that's a credit and for any read. He understood that he could change his entire offense of game plan. If you have a quarterback who's capable of doing this now all these teams maybe. They had a head coach. who was not how willing to take such a risk? Maybe they had no manager who could not foresee that Andy Reid as a different mindset. Insane not only can this guy wins the game but he can unhelped dominate team. But honestly could anyone have expected Patrick Mahomes to be this good this quickly. He was the MVP last year in in what was basically his first year as a starting quarterback the answer I can give a I think are twofold Alex Smith the former quarterback of the cheese. He's should not be lost in history for what he did for Patrick Mahomes. But here's this young shot kid who's going to be under your manners like teach them how to Mike. Replace Your essence. And that's what they ask. Alice moves to do and Alex Smith was wise enough and secure enough and clearly wash. Patrick Mahomes in practice ascend was like. Oh yeah okay like I. I don't need to stunt this guy's growth and when it was time for the two trait out Smith away to the Washington redskins skins he had given mahomes essentially eleven months work of an internship or an apprenticeship that allowed him to be successful for me. Having that guy like Alex in front me who was a great guy who did all the right things and was a true professional helped me learn how to kind of prep and have a lot of success in the NFL. I mean I give them a lot the credit that he kind of took me in and showed me the roads in the second part of this answer as like how could anybody he was ever GonNa be this good during practice is he had a year to do whatever he wanted. which is like hey get creative be improvisational do things that a coach would necessarily tell you what to do? But let's see if it works and if it works Andy. Reid is a wise enough man and say hey. Maybe we should use that. When you're the quarterback one day someday one of I've been accepted accepted to go out there and be who I am for me like I said I've been putting a great situation and maximizing every single day it takes foresight it takes conviction and obviously belief from an entire entire organization to say? Wow they let him do things in practice that a net that a normal. NFL player does not get to Alex. Smith taught him and the chiefs gave him freedom up to figure out what was actually possible before he ever played a game. What are some of the criticisms? Andy Reid is faced over the years. He has been somewhat complicated in in terms of managing the clock there. The last time Andy Reid was in a super bowl. The Philadelphia Eagles competed with the New England patriots but they fell behind and they took too long in terms of their rally in terms of their comeback. Think you gotta be careful about running the ball right now. I think what Andy has shown throughout the game trying to stay balanced even when they've not gotten a lot out of their running game I think at this stage of the ball game. You've got to start being a little bit more aggressive with your play calling. Always kind of been a knock on him since he left. Philadelphia was like Hey I don't know how to handle a tight game in the fourth. Quarter for Andy. Reid is just. Hey the biggest System is we always a great coastal. Why hasn't he won a super bowl but but for the first time I think in his career he will interest super bowl with the better quarterback and Patrick Mahomes? You've also talked about the way in which Patrick mahomes and Andy Reid complete each other. Yes in offense of meanings Andy. Reid was sort of suggests something at Patrick Mahomes. We're what complete Andy Reid. Senses and Patrick has told me before that with Andy Reid calls a play Atra mahomes already knows it and so when he hears a play. Call from Andy Reid through Eric Office coordinator. It's like yes I already know and now I know exactly what to do. A coach can the super bowl without a quarterback quarterback cannot be his best version of himself without a creative and empowering head coach. These two men are. You're going to be forever linked to one another I believe in NFL history. They are married Infobahn matrimony from this day forth.
