At the Podium: Welcoming Andre Dillard!

"Eagles are at the podium, and we've got to fresh pressures for yet today here to introduce all of that is me your host, Michael kissed followed by work at bleed green dot com. Follow me on Twitter at Michael kissed NFL K, I S T. So as I said we have to pressures, and I'll tell you who they are. We're going back in time to the night of the draft after the first round selection of Andre Dillard to hear what Howie Roseman and Doug Peterson had to say about how things shook out for them in the draft after that. We'll get to Andre Dillard's introductory press conference as he met for the first time with the Philadelphia media as Philadelphia eagle before we get to that. I wanna talk some more about Dillard since I have the floor here. So we'll take a look at some analytics, and we'll talk about the Washington state product. And there are some notes that I grab from pro football focuses two thousand nineteen NFL draft guide. Let's start with some heat earned their highest pass protection grade of any starting tackle in college football last year with a great of ninety four point. Oh in that area out of over one hundred tackles, Dillard, ranked six with a pass efficiency rating of ninety nine point zero only one sack allowed two hits allowed ten hurries thirteen total pressures in two thousand nineteen if you're wondering if that's good. Yeah. It's pretty good didn't allow any pressures to Russia's. According to PF scored very well with inside and outside pressures allowed if you're breaking it down into category. So all that's very strong the area of weakness for him is in the running game, which wasn't a focus of Mike Leach's, Washington state offense, Dillard, ranked eighty ninth in run block success. So that's going to be a big focus for offense of line coach, Jeff Stoughton. And it's something that Dillard addresses in his press conferences. Well, luckily, for us doubt has a long history of developing linemen dating back to the eighties. And it's a great situation for Dillard to be as we pointed out on radio forty seven after this election and BGN radio special number two when we talked about offense tackles in this class with Brandon thorn that was before this election looking further into the run game aspect. Of this. The sports info solutions two thousand nineteen rookie handbook had him at a fifty four point five percent positive play percentage when running to his gap which ranked towards the top tier of this class was not all bad in. That regard looking at their blown block charting. His one point. One two percent blown block rate in the run game was ranked towards the middle while his point four four percent blown block percentage. Impasse. Bro was tops in the class are so at shift focus from analytics and get more into valuating traits had Dillard as the twentieth ranked player on my board overall. So the value batches there with the twenty second overall, selection and looking around to some of the respected evaluators in this space, Dane, Brugge ler of the athletes who I love and he calls his draft guide the beast, and let me tell you the name fits he had Dillard night overall on his big board and said, quote overall Dillard is a better pass protector run blocker right now. But he is a quick minded player with light feet and core power to play multiple positions in the NFL, including left tackle, unquote. Daniel Jeremiah, Evan will know, we're continually called Dillard, the best pass protector in this class. So there's a lot of hype surrounding Dillard in a large shadow in the form of Jason Peters looming over him, and you hope he's able to live up to all of that hype expansions right one last note before we continue we'll have a new kissed and Solex show, very soon. So has yet to have his say about this draft hall on this feet. So we're going to give him ample time to give his thoughts will give him the floor for a little bit. But right now, we're going to kick it over to Howie Roseman and Doug Peterson after the first round of the NFL draft. They were at the podium. This guy that we had ranked at were top ten players in the draft in it -ticipant the opportunity to go up and get him. When today started really excited. It's a great tribute to our scouting staff or front office staff coaching staff, we all work together on the draft process. And on this guy in particular now for us. It's always about taking the best player. We went into free agency to try to. Dress a lot of the need on our team. So we could be in position tonight and the rest of the weekend to take the best players. This is certainly not new position we have a hall of fame left tackle. And again, you know, he's got great opportunity to come in. And learn from Jason, and you know at some point in time giving opportunity to play. Seoul things kind of playing out that there's a chance that he would fall beyond where you guys had it ranked in top ten. No. That wasn't really what we had intimidated. You know, when we look at kind of how drafts go and. Our value was this was the best tack on the draft. And so usually those guys go in the top ten, and that's how we had them rate him. So when he started to fall, we just on opportunity to get a top ten player again, you know, when you have it a top ten player at an important position. It doesn't matter about the the death aren't team. We're we're trying to load up on the lines. We've talked about that allowed with you guys. And that that's how we roll. What's the like when he? You know, he's got great feet him really really smooth past protector long arms, big hands. Great character. You know, you can see a lot of things that we do ofensive -ly at the same time. He's also got room to grow. You know, he hasn't hit his ceiling. Obviously there's a lot of conversations about his experience in that offense. In fact, they throw the ball a lot, and you know, what great opportunity again to learn from Jason Peters, coach style. Coach Peterson our coaching staff and that old line room. What a great room to learn from the process like when you start to see him fall. And it will point. Did you think it was realistic, the get up and get total anarchy? You know, I think for us. It was important to us that we protect those those two second round picks. And that we protect those picks yesterday. So on fortunate to how to have a one big icing on my left one but guy sitting on my right? And when I come up with crazy ideas, they kinda give me this look. So when we had the opportunity to go up, and it's it's a lot, you know, those two players with the fourth in a six, but it's also an opportunity to get a top ten new board. Situations in that moment. Do you see him falling to, you know, your offensive minded coach want you have a franchise quarterback in need to protect are you nudging Howley at some point to say, hey, you know, this is a guy would want. Yeah. I mean, you know, first of all worksite to to get Andre. This guy's he he's he's a special player and how he mentioned he's got a great opportunity to learn from one of the best left tackles in our game. But you know, where we had him on our board. Yeah. I mean, as it got closer, you know, you just try to make some eye contact, and you know, the conversation picks up a little bit. And and we're just excited and thrilled to get him. Get him in here and get them going. Hackel. Omen prospect or for the short term. You see him as as a pencil inside play. Do you know right now, I see him coming here and learning and getting getting. Sorta hitting the ground running, you know, with with our offseason program with rookie minicamp coming up get in with stout and just just feeling out the playbook and see him where he's at and get him. Get them caught up. That's our goal right now. That's our main focus, and and as we mentioned, you know. When j p is there he gets to learn from one of the best so were to succeed to have him have him in the mix. Background scouting him. When I got on your guys kind of radar and also how that system playing in that system projects to plant in the NFL. Whether there is protection bureau, actually, our director college going Anthony patch he lives pretty close to Washington state. He did a great job in our area scout Ryan Myers. Those guys at a phenomenal job of going in there and getting to know. Getting to know Andrei and. Zack. Less. You guys are at the senior. You've got to see him perform that week Donna a mobile. So we were very comfortable. We got a chance to spend a lot of time with Andre in our in our commerce QBR senior bowl interview. So he had a great week. And we couldn't be more excited to have. What we talked about all fence live prospects. Especially rookies talked about versatility a lot of high level prospect like that is. Is it just like concentrated on ease Aleph tackle? I mean, if you look at me, see see our offense one last year person was was a huge key. We're just speaking on Andrei. I mean, his his foot quickness is lower body flexes ability to redirect. I mean, those are those are all very intriguing thinks us just out said in the past that you got to give them a list, and he says either this got it or doesn't have what was his involvement kind this process at least. Yeah. I think we've used in the draft pasta stored passionate a lot. Coach stout. Stauton gets very passionate about Seraing guys. And when when Joe is just describing Andre I was thinking about coach talking about his lower body flex and when he describes his lower body flexibility, his excitement level raises. So he just you know, he he talks about guys that are unusual. He uses that word, and when he says the word unusual, it kind of its striking. It's like this guy. He's unusual. And and that's what he is. I mean, Andres unusual. This is not a normal guy is not normal athlete. And so he's he's he's excited. Guys, make his Rudd balking. They did it. They they ran the ball. So rarely up their coach. You know, something that again as we get him in here and get him going. I mean, yeah, they did throw the ball a lot in Washington state. And that's you know, credits what they did. And that's why he's he's a good pass pass protector. You know, we pride ourselves in run the ball here. And he's gonna come in and learn, and that's the thing. And I and I have Jeff statins here. He's a great teacher. And he's a great fundamentalist. And he he's gonna work on every aspect of every one of our players games. Front, you know? And and so I have no no hesitation that. He's going to be a good run blocker. When you talk about. He's got the fortitude. I mean, this kid wants to be great. And and he he takes to coaching really. Well. Are you protect protector quarterback's blindside? But in fact, detached Carson factor in this in terms of like, I mean JP for the last ten plus years as your quarterbacks back. How does that factor into looking in the future with Carson being here? You hope for the next decade you want this year. It's hard to find offense. And I it's hard to find guys with great feed big bodies big hands. It's hard to find these guys, you know, they don't they don't grow on trees. There's very few people in the world. You know, it's the big there's very few big men with that kind of feet. And so h it's just unusual get him. We we like our offense Lon depth. We liked it before today with like the guys that we have on our team, and it's just an area that we want to continue to invest in and be strong in and keep developing guys because you need it you need over. The course the season we've seen that you need the depth. And it's just great situation for young player to come into. It's a little bit older as as a prospect how much into valuation. Yeah. I think that that's part of our valuation process. I mean, we we look at age as a factor. But you know, when you look at this guy and his ceiling, and when you look at that a lot of times, I think some of the things that we've learned, you know, I know I've learned personally is has got hit a ceiling when he's twenty three or twenty four years old or does he still have room in his body to grow? And I think we all agree. It was unanimous that this guy is hasn't come close to sealing. And just talking to these guys in our staff about what what we can do for him and especially in the wrong game and talk about explosive power. But also see it on tape. I mean, I don't think it's fair to say that this guy is in good in the run game. So we're we're just really cited right now about this. But at the same time we I go back upstairs. We gotta see what's going on. We got a lot of work to do the next couple of days. So. As you watched the picks that you think Houston was TV show. To be honest. We were trying to go up ahead of Baltimore. We just couldn't come to an agreement. So it just kinda worked out that way. Obviously, we knew are. We thought that that was a spot that probably there was a chance that they were gonna take offense stock which they did. And we had to go by our board. And now a top guy on our board. So certainly we thought that if we didn't get to Baltimore spot. There was a chance we'd lose the player. And I think all of us when they want to make sure we got the players. Plus historic confirms defensive line. Guys went off the way expected, and you feel like maybe, you know, there's more drafts that were be more rounds victory feeling maybe something didn't fall what you wanted to in terms of getting defensive tackle. Now. I mean, I think things fell. We thought they would I mean. It is a strong Dhillon class. And I think you see with the beginning of this draft a lot of teams evalu- these defensive lineman. Trade to get to thirteen and then the dolphins back down. I guess any comments on that? Any comments on that? I can't comment on that report. No. We didn't have the trade. We had was dribbling bait I didn't see that. Back to that. You're thinking at all as far as Lyman goes. Again, we went into this draft certainly went into this first round just wanna get an opportunity to to get the best player, we possibly could get and cinnamon where we are twenty five now to come into this day, if we would come in this morning and said we're gonna get a top ten pyre ward at important position. You know, we didn't really into Speight that. And we thought if that was the case we would have to use one of those two second round packs, and we didn't really want to do that TIMMY, it's great to get TIMMY back. He he's just guy. Great energy for football team. You know, just looking that defensive line room and that defensive tackle position that strength of our team. And it's just a good fit for us and Tim. Everybody.

I just wanted to give quick thanks to Mr. Larry how how he rose men in the coach Peterson for this opportunity here until also to my friends family coaches for support me love me throughout this whole process. So last year year the top by pro football, focus yearly top pass blocking tackle in college football last year. What doesn't again after make from the from the college game to the NFL game. Coming from that, Mike Leach offense. It was we definitely pass the ball a lot in. So kinda got a leg up on the protection and aspect of the game. And you know, there's that question, you know, can this guy run block, you know, there hasn't been much film of that haven't been asked to do that a lot. But you know, since the end of college I've been working allot on that part of the game. And I'm gonna continue to do that number the excited. Offense. You're in a two point stance. Most of the time. Not a lot of Ron walking in that office. How do you think you? Take the next shift at this level doing three. Repealing stance. Like, I said, you know at the senior bowl. I kinda got my first gloom said being in a three point stance in felt pretty natural for me to do that. And put the hand in dirt draft somebody off the ball. So you know, if that was a lot of fun. I can only imagine what the next, you know, chapter. My last gonna be lacking. I'm just really excited to get to work and improve in every way that I can. I think there's some thoughts people questioned whether you are being enough. Can you can you mean enough? Of course, you got a little taste of that, you know, over my film, and or the senior bowl film. It's just a switch. You know? Like people would think I'm not capable of being a mean guy on the field because I'm nice right now, you know, but you know, there's that switch that you gotta know when you know to be in be nice. So. I started playing football. You describe yourself was. Just playing edge. What changed? Yeah. Whoa. What by worst? You know, when I I played in eighth and ninth grade. You know, I had no idea what I was doing. I never hit a person before. So I didn't I was like on. Sure if that was okay. And yeah, you have a helmet on, you know, you know, go out there and. Yeah. Over the years of progressively getting better at the game. I just fell in love with more and more just put more of my, you know, my body and soul into it. And so, you know, definitely gotten a lot more aggressive. Sort of playing in eighth grade there to where you are today. You believe that first picketing you're standing here. Fluffy eagles today to go back to that point that you thought that idea would be crazy here today a of time, I do go back and think about those times, and you know, I never even crossed my mind that I would even be like a college player, you know. So just thinking about the journey that I've had up to this point. It really is. It really is specially now. Get as leading crew player as richer player. I. Really, just you know, the coaches that I've had grown up been blessed to have you know, some of the best man in my life. With those guys in that really took me out of their wing. And you know, showed me everything about the game in always encouraged me to keep going keep pushing when times got really tough, and I was discouraged in myself. So. Going well real early. What made you stick with it? Why don't you give up? I've always just had this thing about me where I like to finish what I started. You know, I don't ever want to leave anything with regrets and. You know, I just really kept trusting know? You know? Right on. So how important was that set to get your degree to that was probably the most important reason that I stayed in didn't go early in a really really was a benefit to me in all different ways football needs looted. But I just think the the degrees most important park. That's why you're in college. You know, that's the main thing that you gotta do you. Gotta have a plan b because you know, you're not gonna play football forever. Waiting the gate cheering your arrival. Was that like for you? And then what if you've been told about Philadelphia, and what these phantom, I was just an amazing feeling. I felt like some kind of superhero, you know, is really good feeling and just feel that that passion from the Philly fans right there. And you know, I've been told that the media fans everybody all about their eagles, you know, very passionate group community. And you know, I'm just really excited to be part of all that. Only give up one sack lessees in Washington state onto you remember the one sack and how much do you take static? Now, we give you when you when they passed the vase much. Remember exactly sometimes draft about it. I just really critical myself and everything that I could do better on each place. Obviously is Atlanta. For now, they tell you what they like to see this year. And if there's an opportunity, and they really wanna get you on the field would you play guard. You learn another position on the line. Here just meeting. Everybody kind of show me the ropes around the place right now. But you know, whatever they need me to do on here. Ready to do it ready to work that that I do. Do you? Remember that? My way it was kinda forward, and my hands weren't all the way inside on that particular play. And so he kinda just got hold of my shoulder in kind of down forward in wind side. So it's just always remember that. Techniques cow out you develop. That's me threader. Your is your dad healthy with that at all having experienced dad, definitely played a huge four just might football development, especially in the earlier stages. I'd always ask him for advice throughout the years. Not just football but life in general. Yeah. He's been just the greatest role model for me. And after every game he would kind of critique me a little bit here. And there tell me about certain plays and all that. But the techniques sample used to watch a lot of Jason Peters and tired Smith with the Cowboys and Trent Williams Redskins. Just some good tack. David fiar, you know, just like to watch some of those, you know, high in tackles and kind of watch what they do with their techniques have heard just lots of different pointers from different coaches everywhere. Through fifty sixty seventy times a game. Was there point? You really thought this is gonna really help prepare me for for the NFL whichever years becoming passing. I do think that having a leg up on passage action is hopeful for me because it is something that is very hard to master. It takes a lot of you know, precision technikons poise and everything. So you really got a study in take lots of reps in order to like mass or something like that. So I think it definitely helps me with that transition. Yes. So I came into Washington state at two hundred and forty pounds. And that was the sole reason why I was kind of under recruited and Mike Leach in Moustapha over there. Just kinda took a chance with me. You know, let's see if we can put some meat on this skinny kid, and you know, just turned out to you know, work really well and gained about twenty thirty pounds each year in started at two ninety my sophomore year in than three oh five the next year. And then three ten might last year. So it worked out pretty well. I just waved in the weight room. Really I go between class and fill my backpack. Snacks. I would eat late at night. Because apparently, that's how people gain weight a lot and setting alarm for two in the morning and drink a protein, shake and go back to sleep. There's a little peanut butter jellies in the bags that was popular one there, and then like to slow bars and Kanana's all that good stuff. Game as her body groove. Learn different. I kinda kept the same general technique because you know, when I first came in. I was I was as fast as the receivers because I was only two forty in. I tried to keep that same technique while putting on the way so that I could be fast big guy. So. I haven't had a real one. Pressure in expectation of being a first round draft. The fact that you likely will not have to be thrown into the fire play right away or the guy. Jason Peters will that help Levy eight some of the pressure expectations. You think were really just learn focus in maybe not have to worry about some of the other things other topics afterward. Sure. Yeah. You'd imagine that you know, if if somebody were to not have to be thrown in right away. You know, they get a lot of extra time to develop their skills and learn from the best vast. But you know, like, I said before whatever they need to do regardless of what it is. I'm ready for it. So on your rate left tackles that you watch is yours specifically jaw too because you compare yourself to that physically. Physically. I liked to compare myself to Tyran Smith almost the same bodies. Definitely a lot bulkier than me. But I like to kind of compare my game to his. Voluble father's footsteps was difficult at first because I didn't like football I want. I got on the field. You know, I always stuck to it. And I love my dad a lot, and I trusted his words law. So. In a way, not necessarily push. But. He was more encouraging always supportive of what I did my life. So. But if I ever did feel like giving up on something, you know, he wouldn't you know, he would kind of step in and be like, hey, you know, you don't want to live with any regrets. You know, that's kind of work that finish. What you started that? Recent years. Kinda I didn't start thinking about NFL until maybe midway through college. And then that's when my coaches were like, hey, you know, these scouts coming through asking about you. And I was kinda surprised as sure as me. But you know, that gave me some confidence. And then as the words, you know, started coming in more and more about you know, NFL this scouts this. And it kinda just clicked in my head by hey, you know, I can do this in. Oh, nice started compare myself to you know, NFL players or displays that I played with that are in the NFL. Now, you know like Joe doll with the Detroit and co Madison Green Bay on. I'm pretty good friends Boston coordinate the Browns. And so I just kind of prepared myself to those players, you know, what it could be good, you know, as good as them and play at that level too. So. Got you kind of chart around sports, one specific instance or anything. There was an instance when I got to my sophomore year Sar high school was three or high school sophomore junior senior. So I got to high school. Those coaches were a lot different than what I had in junior. High of the ones I had in junior high. We're kind of you know, counterproductive, you know, always trying to bring you down type. And then when I got to woodinville high school, you know, coach Monin the line coach coast match. Well, they were just really good to everybody. Good to me and took me out of their wing. And that really kind of just gave me a boost, you know, and they really were patient and worked with me. And I think that's what kind of flipped it for me. Right there quitting. Before I got a high school all the time. Yeah. I was it's it's really discouraging. When you come in late. You know, all your friends have been playing the game since they were like, you know, third grade, and I'm in eighth grade. And they all kind of know what's going on. I have no idea. It's it's kind of scary. It's scary like that. And so you it's hard to keep going. But something inside me just tell told me to keep going. Say that positive reinforcement at coaching. Then as you said were negative, you know. Think at that age. Yeah. Positive reinforcement would would have been a lot better. Because you know, you're young kids still you kinda you don't react to yelling as well. As you would at an adult age like I am right now. And so, you know, I don't think it carries over that much at all right now, I'll take any coaching because it's all about what they said not how they say. Wait didn't start told later. What was the reason that you didn't start football until they're? Mainly just goes, I like basketball, and I thought that would be my sport. And I was a little nervous to start football. 'cause I knew it was pretty aggressive sport. But you know, I didn't know that I didn't picture this happening either. So. About the other one sack you gave up and how you're kind of wait on how do you deal with failure in general as you're about the negative pretty big jump in? We'll for failure general in anything just not just football. I really take time to kind of analyze you know, what things went wrong, and I just learned from. I mean, you're here. So off which alerts him that has helped you reach this point. Biggest thing learned from coach leashes really this thing that he says probably. Sixteen ish times each practice on not that exact number but just asked him, but he says ally, and it's just play the next play. You know, whether you did good or bad on play like all their matters is the one in front of you because you know, you good you can't show boat in be like, oh, yeah. I'm you know, I'm I'm the guy and then just get ran over the next one. If you do something bad, you can't hang head on it. So that's just the biggest thing is like short term memory. But be able to adapt in learn if you did something. Five years ago. I. You know, I had no idea. Honestly, I was just kind of going where life was taken. Purchase. Vehicle of some sort. So I can actually get around and stuff. The emission that you've watch la- taper Jason heaters. What impresses you most about him? As a player first thing. I noticed just how he is. And how can move that body that well, how strong us, and I noticed that you know, technique is some of the best ever seen. You know, what other people have seen? So just I instantly knew that, you know, this is a guy that could earn from little did. I know I could actually, you know, be in his presence as well. Actually texting. Jesus, you know, super excited for me and happy to have me board and excited to work with me. Thank you. Gee. My name is Spencer hall by name is Jason Kerr. My name is Ryan nanny, we combined we've form the shutdown full. I keep telling you this forecast is technically college football podcast.

Were still figuring that out and then you're also going to have later on a more fully fleshed out. Show delving into that. Specific selection. Were also planning to stream live on instagram. During the first two nights of the draft. So you'll get to join me. Brennan League outten and Shaimaa clancy as we react to everything as goes down for that. You'RE GONNA WANNA be subscribed to bleed green instead on instagram. Or you can always just click the link when we drop it on the twitter timeline. All right let's get to Howie Roseman any wiles pre-draft chat with the media right now. Everyone in their families doing what? I'll thanks for taking the time today before we start. I just WanNa atop a little bit about the fact that we lost three legends this past week Eagles. Legends thoughts are with their families. See Timmy Brown You know I know that everyone here is trying to stay calm and stay focus. I think it's important. Also that we recognize those people Obviously the Eagles family is thinking of them in their families. I want to thank all the individual could people in the organization who are doing so many great things in our community right now in a really for us. It's inspirational starts with our owner. Jeffrey Lurie that stuff that he's doing the donation that he may round the league. It's really incredible and I think in the next week we're going to use this opportunity in the form of the draft. Do some things that contribute to that and recognize the people that are doing things and working at this time when all of us to be able to be draft perhaps oh I just wanted to make sure that we recognize those people next Thursday. Friday Saturday is a great opportunity for us to do that. Really appreciative of a staff that we have with. The Eagles are coaches. Obviously are scouts. Everyone in the front off. It's the it me. Dave unbelievable really. Just these people come together. It's amazing when again in a moment like this to see how everyone react so Just wanted to thank them for their help. Okay we'll open it up to questions start with David Garrow then. We'll go to Paul dommage. Go ahead yourself. You guys I guess this is a question for both of you with how unique this draft is. When next Thursday night happens how will specifically work the lines of communication? And how many times are you going to run through it over the next week to make sure you have it right? Well All star Microsoft teams has been godsend for us. It it's been really incredible the amount of communication that we've had over it a how it's functioning how it's working in so we'll have different rooms of big group small coaches obviously. Jeffrey coach Peterson and As we get closer to it we'll have the same people do a lot of same things that they've done. You know Anthony Patch really for the last twenty years has been the guy on the phone telling us about in front of us and then Helping US figure out how much time left he'll be doing that. The person who makes the trade all will still be doing that with the League. So we're trying to keep it as possible on the communication level as good as many. You Guys GonNa run through scenarios for the day while a lot of opportunities to do that in. I think publicly reported that the league will have a mock draft up on day. Two run fruit as well So what will make its trades? Okay we'll go to domino and then to Mike K for both Howie. 'n Andy of another major focus supposed people is on the first and second rounds of this draft but you guys have four of your a picks in a forty forty three pick span there right now between one. Oh three and one forty. Six in the third. And fourth rounds. However you approach stats strategically Is it a good place to have multiple picks this year and and and at what positions Andy? Those regret we. We have picks in in those eight. Pixar aid opportunities. We look at We're excited third. Round Fourth Round second round fifth round. We feel there's players on every level the draft in we stack the board such so. We're excited Each pick in each opportunity that we're going to have Mike and then we'll go to a firm. Howie given the insurgents regarding next year's football season draft class. How will you way? Next year's draft picks central trades and potential deals down the road no different than a draft. You know we always valued the present and future. That's our responsibility to make sure that we're competing. Not only this year but going forward especially in we talk about quarterback was twenty seven years old so I think it all depends on the opportunity all ends on the value saw a couple years ago picking thirty two and we will drop down and get a future around so we'll weigh all those opportunities as they come for us. We'll go zach unless Allie when you spoke to us at the combine. You were reluctant to really talk about the death of the wide receiver class before you had all the information. Now that you have that how would you characterize this class? And how deep into the class do you think it goes where you can find quality receivers well Fool me one shame on you will be twice. Shame amazed at how the saying goes We've been in this situation a couple of times with a strong classes in at. It's come back to bite me off about itself. I would just say you know what we're doing is we're trying to stack the board based on the player Obviously there's some positions that had more depth than others. I know a lot of other people have had the opportunity to talk about a specific -sition in that class. But we don't WANNA get ahead of ourselves and say just because there's received -sition of strength that that's where we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA choose from. Can we'll go less than Martin? Frank I'd like to ask this to both of you The wide receiver position which we were just talking about. Why is it so difficult to evaluate? I've seen statistics that inspite up there with quarterback in terms of first round. Mrs Guys that don't work out what goes into that. And Howie in your history with the team looking back on guys wide receivers. Who didn't come everything you had hoped? What can you see there? Is there a common thread? Is there something you've learned about that over the years the first part of that shore? You know it's time will tell with this draft class as with each class But it's an exciting class. There's different flavors. Obviously different types of receivers and there's plenty of them in this draft in in every level so We're excited Our Scouts have done a great job. Getting these players sacking the board around meetings odds week with our coaches and everybody had a chance to voice their opinion and You know we're excited about the strength. The depth in level players that are in this draft at the receiver position. But what is a scout part about that about that position? It's case by case. I think he's getting to know the players and I and I think it's just watching the guy what you see the vision of the player. There's a lot of things that come into play Receivers as at any position in this business. I think also you know we talk about the receiver position. What was going on ten years ago and where these raised and how their grooms at the high school level and the advent of seven on seven camp so now these guys if earnings in the passing game so I don't know that in a what was going on in two thousand ten is the same for evaluating a position now but obviously coverages are different in the national football league the quality of the blaze different. And you got his college Able Schema opportunities and moving guys around because in College. Football is obviously not the same level play in the secondary that you haven't Bali. I think sometimes that's been the arbiter allegation that asked that you know you don't take for granted now in terms of Austin and what we've done we gotta look at that. We got a look at the guy we brought in and the reasons they they're brought in The guys had success. Who Haven't talked about it at some point this off season about the fact that you know surprising to us just going back in and how much dying reduction about some of the success that some guys last year head coming into the NFL and at being a productive right away so we gotta look at that stuff we gotta learn from it and make sure that we're doing whatever we can to add. Talent to our team can Martin and then Jimmy Kemp's hey a halley Andy. How's IT GOING I wanted to ask you. Guys obviously made the trade for dairy slain. You gave up to revere. Ten draft picks. Does that make you more or less reluctant to make another deal Especially like in the first round. If we feel there's so many really WANNA have to move up up for dealer so I think that you know we when we look at at that draft that trade in value that trade based on the other option to us that was their free agency. How much we're going to have to spend the first few years of that deal. And then what we can get a with the money that we kinda save and was that worth the value of draft vets. And I think when we look at whether we're moving up in any round first round second round third round in the fourth round. I think we just kind of look at the value of the player where the war drops off. If we see a big gap and there's a big drop off them will look at that. If we feel like as a group of guys really like elegant choose from them will probably stay but or move back. You know I look at it kind of A. I remember two thousand when we traded off for Brandon Graham and we move back in the second round and against Myrtle expects of. You know there's ways to do that. A. There's different ways at kind of go through this draft process and we'll be ready for all those opportunities. Okay Jimmy and then Ruben a having pets you said that wide receivers take more time to acclimate to the pro level in other positions. You take a year or two before. They should be expected to become starting level players with the success that some rookie receivers have had around the League for the last few years has that philosophy changed anyway. And you feel that there are receivers in this upcoming draft. Who can be immediate key contributors? Yeah the first part of that. Probably go back to my answer to less and talk about how the wide receiver has been groomed in how it's played out In High School and college football high school offenses are changing. And so these guys are coming to college. College offenses has changed. In the advent of out opulent passing game is and spread formations and getting on the field earlier getting more experienced than come into the NFL. I'm more prepared so I think it has changed in in terms of guys ready. I'm in a great France off about a little bit is it's just the piggyback on that. It's become face game. He needs to begin. Become a game a match ups spreading people out in receivers that can win on all three levels early. Top of the route in in Gaza can stretch the field. So among it's just it's it's become a one on one league in a in a space game in Gaza can win in guys that can go bubble ring play football. It's really evolved into that. I believe it Ruben. Then Clinton or we could just go to mclane ribbons not ready abair Amir got. Has Everybody doing how you talked a lot about? How Two Thousand Fifteen Shaped you in everything. You've learned that year and I was just wondering how that experience kind of manifest itself in draft day with you you talked about your communication and everything in collaborative and working with just wondering how that all kind of translates to what happens in the draft room As far as just the way you go about your business on draft day. Yeah I think that when I look back at. Mit Time Jammed Fro League. They're also different regimes you know obviously started out with Gotree and Joe and that staff and And then coach Kelly and how that worked so it's always been kind of a different environment in atmosphere and then I'm back in Peterson. The staff we have now You know I think that. It's kind of reliance People here everyone's voice and I'm trying to collaborative but at the same time also making sure that we're doing what's right for the team and having the kind of vision big provisions because this allow from us but we're not just trying to collect town trying to build a team and we're trying to figure out with the resources of what makes the most sense what we read and see what we can get an inflatable Grafting wearing strong words week and I think that that year was great. Take a step back and look at some of the things and one of the things that I thought was really was was the regrets in regrets about maybe trying to win as opposed to end the best player Philadelphia Eagles and so for US stats. That's what it's all about. It's not about the next day in the draft grades that were getting about adding the right players right. Fits for the Philadelphia Eagles for the short term. It and most importantly longer could Jeff McManus. How we've we've asked you before about Carson Wentz his involvement in draft prospects. He's knows players you've worked with them before and we've seen that play out with certain players but this is the first draft that you guys have had since he signed a contract extension and we've heard so much about you guys wanting to bringing guy guys he can he can grow with Does this voice is voiced any louder Obviously it's a little hard. 'cause you're not seeing them all the time but what kind of Input will he have into this year's dress and you know Carson announced got his hands full? He's expecting a baby any day. Now and You know for us. We want to communicate with our players. Parsons a huge part of it and enable sit down with him after the seat and talk about our vision Keep in touch and make sure that you don't pay in his The fire already in the past. He advocated workout with some guys. But obviously with social distancing and everything It's not the same way Anytime we can get valuable information for many of our players about guys. I know guys aren't up. It's important because you know it's dating before you married so you don't really know anyone until you're building unless that experience tim at then John mccollum our thoughts in the past about how you see the first round in terms of how many guys you have first round grades on and how breaks down in tears How do you see this class in that respect? Yeah there's certainly drop off in every draft. It's very unusual to sit there and say you've got thirty two first round grades guys. It's just not realistic in and so for us you know it is the opportunity to get a young difference maker a and so we have off on guys on the board where we think town love drops off and where mystic that will be able to get someone who will do a great job for our football team to make an impact not only next year with a go ahead. John and then John Clark Hi guys are for both of you. Howie you kind of mentioned about this process being like getting married Getting prospects into the building with the current uncertainty. You don't know when that's happened happen. How has it affected your about through this whole process for you? But I'd say in any can step in whatever I'd say that is credit to our. Our scouts are coaches. Everyone in the building. Who's really taken this on? No these guys as well as I can. I'm sure there are a lot of players in this draft. Were tired of seeing two one. Five numbers come on their phone at at these conversations because guys are taking it as their responsibility whether it's scouts whether it's coaches to make sure that they know everything about these guys to make sure that they're getting their work done to know as much as they know it if the atom person so that's just a credit to our staff and the job are doing live by Andy Touch on even more are scouts were first ones in the fall of the ground troops. They go into the schools. Get the information on the players in through the processes begin to the All Star Games We spent time with with each player. We do individual interviews. And sometimes we do group Interviews Informal Interviews Senior Bowl. Fifteen or sixteen guys and then. We had the forty five at the combine this year. And you just take all that information that you have everybody's in the same boat in tort to a credit of our staff has been aggressive in creative the video chats in spending much time with the players as we can in in doing the best job possible so we. We've done a really good job in getting these players we feel in there were treated for next report. Jon Clarke then Kristin Rogers. Good morning guys question for both of you without not being able to have that looks player in the eye contact after the combine and maybe get that gut sense so if there's any medical issues or character issues how much you GonNa Wrestle. Maybe making a safe pick in this environment versus you really maybe could get a talent and the value above maybe that spot that you're picking any other. I think he take all the information you have and you make the best decision. He can on on each player on each individual case in. That's that's what we've done in the in this entire process the film evaluations. Y'All start valuations to combine evaluation meeting with the players. And we had the opportunity or do the best you can empty any trust your instinct and your judgment in the on the take all that information and data and you make the best decision possible kristen and then bogeyed. Good Morning. Howie Andy how he this is for you. We're all making right now during this time of cope in nineteen from just doing this over zoom right now to how the draft is going to be conducted. Can you appreciate the fact that we've been having draft right now? And having that sense of normalcy for fans out there I know I speak for anyone. I say we feel very fortunate that we've been able to put our head down really focused on our jobs and I know that that's not the one for everyone in so you know We WanNa make sure that were. Were doing the right thing as we go through this period of time. And and this distraction and hopefully provide a welcome distraction for our fans and not one of the things that I was talking about when he opened this station. We have some ideas here to utilize this platform to you a really take advantage of next week and I already see you know Jeffrey's done in tapping our area with all in challenge and what we're air. Um I just may bid for that opportunity to make our golf coach Peterson and I think that at the end of the day you know it's just We don't take that lightly. We don't take that lightly that we'd have this opportunity to really put our head down in. We're going to try and make a difference for our football team and give our fans something to be real excited about as we get into the fall baseball. Truly it is awful. I'm phillies writer. Justin clue join me every week. Along with John Stolnis Liz Rozier and Dr Trevor Strunk. All the ways the phillies have hurt us on our podcast hidden as well as historical anecdotes and rar emotional ramblings on our other shows continued success and the dirty inning subscribed to the good fight and you'll get conversations with insiders analysis of breaking news and Stat Stat stats together. We'll survive whatever baseball can throw at US do bow. And then Nick Fiero guys. I wonder if you could just both tell us exactly what your Home Office setups are like? And what they're going to be like during the draft where you are on your house and like what what you have there again so unfortunately I have a Home Office About two years ago at tone. Who heads are video group? He came out and he outfitted. It was my my care He gave me all all the bells and whistles saw wash taste so I can assist so I had all the resources at my disposal and he did that because there were times that we've been the off-season related night. I wouldn't have everything I need it and you know. There's really no excuses for our celebrate. It's it's incredible it's a great tribute to our staff to put us in a position that it's really been seamless as we talk about graph that I know some some GM Some people that I'm friends with have have given people an opportunity to see it which I'll do here at all the bells and whistles that we would have there. There's really Obviously we have a state of the art bathroom in amazing draft. Will Miss will miss the contact you know one of my things as Andy knows is before. Start the draft. I go around and Fist-bump forever graft after we make pace. You know having that that clapping in everyone's excited in watching the highlights together. We're GONNA try to do that. We're GONNA try to have those things that we have there and have those opportunities and again we're not making a case for this. There's people dealing with a lot worse than we're dealing with and We feel fortunate football next week. Talk my office is on the first floor of our house here and I'm actually taking my wife uses for her business in. I've overtaken use it for this out of the month foreseeable future But it's the same thing Pat Dolan. It Department Video Anthony Cozy. They've been absolutely rockstars. And this has a seamless tradition. We've been efficiently battle to get work. Done the connectivity. We felt as as one With our group last week thirty people plus on the calls dot standing It was it was a great transition in We've been very efficient very fortunate in like I said we got a chance to bring some excitement in some hope and hopefully make our fans proud with the work. We're going to do next weekend. Are you guys GonNa have to have fun? Over three day period. I got to sequester. The kids It. It's an issue you know it's funny. I told Andy this I got I got on a chat with a bunch of other. Gm's as our kids get an opportunity. Go to these meetings these league meetings and they all hang out together and they grow up together real special and we're trying to figure out stuff to keep them busy during the draft so that normally I'll get text messages from my boy About stuff that's going on bay attention to them Now now the knocking on the door. We're going to have to make sure we give them things to do here. Keep them busy. I think. Different dynamic After we got some fishing coaches that are doing the same thing. So all on that case we'll go neck and then Jeff's diversity. Hi guys discussing. Both of you is kind of a two parter. I it's been suggested I think that steelers the steelers. Gm Kevin Colbert was hoping to maybe get this. Draft extended the ten rounds. Just because what you're facing this year Wanted to know what your thoughts were on that. And also how that might impact is obviously not going to be ten routes going to be seven but you think that the I want to know what your thoughts are going to be on kind of like the mad rush for the undrafted. Free agents are a after the draft. You know maybe compared to other years I'll make sure a matching any questions over the league staffs. Oh my boy over here to stay out of trouble but I think that you know. Obviously those things are done on a higher level is with the Union and the CDC that. We're not involved with you know. Just just tell us the rules in what we gotTA DO. A movie ready to go and so That will where there's nothing that changed the environment you know after. The draft process is hectic. Save the least were altogether and so now we have this this situation where they're going to be people who are you know obviously handling certain positions on. Andy's group Jay Rosen and Bryce They're helping as well or on a group ALEC. They're helping as well. We just over to mediate because we certainly don't WanNa be a position where we're over-committing is. We're not communicating about the spots. So when he talked about mock drafts that Amok owes free agency period. So we understand how the communication it's GonNa work and we got a lot of action at scouts and coaches wandering players into the building. We also WanNa make sure that enemy. Ross spot taken Andy. It's just a lot of it's about relationships. In in connectivity in this business or scouts establishing relationships with the players as the all-star process we get to the combine the chance to spend some time with the player and now the video chats and the skype All those all those come into play in. It's about being a salesperson and it'd be a good recruiter in across the board. It's been a collective unbelievable effort as how he touched off from. Jake Rosenberg Alex or scouts. Everybody it's been all hands on deck in. It's been an admirable effort in worksite. In network side with the board stacked in La. We got a chance to really out of this team. We know the opportunity. That's GONNA come after after the draft after that last pick in the seventh rum it will go jeff. And then Bob grits. What's up guys? Thank you so much for doing this. We appreciate it. I wanted to ask you go if you can answer this question when you look at your roster right now at this point. How much do you feel the necessary? How necessarily think it is to address a position right now? Look at Jerusalem's or one or two positions you save yourself. We need to address right here right now for this upcoming season it. Just don't WanNa get into a situation where you force things Obviously human nature to see a whole on your roster or see position that you wanna upgrade and feel like you just GonNa to use this opportunity to do just that but one compound the problem by making. That doesn't really help and I think we've shown that After the draft they're going to be opportunities to improve our ball team whether may whether they're in August whether there during the season and so we don't look at this as the draft as the last stop For us to help our team for the season we look at it as just another opportunity to improve our town level this year and going forward so I don't I we've come out of it the last couple years and and you know it's easy for us to look at seventeen and we at two positions that we want to improve in the short term after their Athens. Seventeen et Tributary one organization. That we're able to do that during in a two thousand eighteen We used the trade deadline to do that. And then last year in we felt good about our roster and obviously injuries occurred than we used during the season as an opportunity to to get some guys that are just after Bring them up and help them through our Ostra. So we'll look at every avenue to do that. We don't want mean situation where we're forcing something it's next week. It's an opportunity in the one thing Businesses it can change quick and a position of strength position can turn into a position in the based on injuries or other mitigating factors. But so you just want to get the best players that fit our team in our cultures as how he stated in. That's what we're GONNA do in. That's what we're gonNA execute next week. We stack the board of such in. We've done a really good job hitting these players and I think as we move forward with the you're gonNA see hopefully see players we bring in here. That people are GonNa be proud both on the field off the field will go bob and then at `grats guys good morning question about You can have a mock draft the NFL To see how everything thing works before the draft and I imagine that's going to be huge. But what is your gut sets? There's there's quite a lot of quarterbacks that potentially could come off the board. There's a Lotta offensive tackles. That could come off the board and all those things could impact what happens to other draft boards. What's your gut sense Trader Howie? About how difficult it is to be able to swing trades in this craft. And how many actually might a question about About two thousand eighteen so my experiences in you know I know that we've talked about the two thousand fourteen draft and right away that dynamic trade changed in the trade market With Ray that happened in the top ten and the price went up and then you we had gone through a bunch of mock scenarios and and we had a worst case scenario investigate scenario. So you gotta be prepared for the worst case scenario. You gotTA stack the Board in the way that you would be comfortable taking the twenty-first flair on your war. Not You know hope and we said it's a lot you know hopes not a strategy. We have gone hanging but not hoping that. Someone's GonNa follow you. And so we'll we'll expect the worst and hope for the best and then we'll make sure we understand as the draft is going on what's going on you know what what's going on in trade market. What people are getting what people are looking for? Where Ron has begun John Where a poor drops off and at one of the things that always makes draft exciting gives you butterflies just like anything you know. It's it's something unpredictable will happen there's Way will come off tap me only once that. Kinda came off exactly the opposite of what you're hoping for but we'll be prepared forever scenario. Any you have any gut sense. Howie that Corona I mean? The remote setup could dampen trades in. I know that we're in the same conversations around the league that we always do you know a a week out from the draft and the communication You know we got a great group of GM's and guys that really do a great job communicating with each other talking to each other. It's a fraternity Stations happening now. I think a lot of it depends on just oats in where people most people want to do. And you know. I don't think that there's a lack of communication because we're we're communicating on the phone during the draft. Anyway you know we all have each other's phone numbers off multiple phone lines so I think that they'll be the same level of communication is. That doesn't change. That's one thing that's not going to change Werner Draft Room. And we're talking to the jets you know that's not face to face interaction anyway. Joe Nellis Picking Them Phone in Joe. We're here we'll go ED and then Roddy. Hey guys. Thanks a lot for doing this. Given the number of injuries this team has had the last couple of seasons without the ability to really do medical reach with your own staff and there have been some players you know some prospects that have had some surgeries since combine ended. I mean would you be hesitant to take somebody unless you are one hundred percent sure of their medical at it? I think you you take all the information as we said we got really trust rely on our medical staff in you take all the information that's acquired it's a case by case situation. You do these player everybody recovers different In you look at history Employers in I think you'd have to treat as a case by case player in in make the best decision based on the data that you have. It's a great opportunity for us. Also thank our chief medical officer Unbelievable email with so much on his plate right now as a doctor and him being able to give the time. I can't imagine he's sleeping right now but able to give us. The information of these guys are new head trainer. Tom has been unbelievable for him. To kinda come in this Ted are for performance. Agai for them to do believe mountain work that they've done on the strath in this draft class. Dig On guys and get as much information as they possibly can always studies. They've done on gap is just. It's amazing I know. Just because they're coming into these new spots in their first off season in these new roles and I know how excited they were to really get rolling and build those relationships suppliers and all that energy to do whatever they can to help our draft process. Just WanNa thank them and the rest of our training staff our strength staff in our team. Doctors were trying to get to as many as we can here. So we'll go rob and then Elliot. How how much thought are you giving to the possibility that this season may be altered? It might be sure and if it's even played at all and had it how's that could that impact what you may do in a draft next week. Meaning maybe more willingness to trade next year's picks because there may not be an opportunity to see college football in twenty twenty so maybe next year's picks could be desirable whereas this year. You know what you're getting a you could drive yourself crazy with trying to get involved in all the scenarios you know what if it's the opposite you know what if you go through the water and I think we can control one thing. And that's that we've had a full year From may we will have a draft next week and everything else is out of our control. We can control. And that's this draft. Obviously we're always keeping an eye on the futures well and feature drafts but I think are going through these. What if scenario you drive yourself crazy? So we'll deal with the information that we have at hand which is a great opportunity next Thursday Friday and Saturday to improve a football team for this season and season. It will wrap up with Elliot. Dan Gallon I was curious outside of Gusty. What qualities do you look for in receivers? That made you think they can stretch the field on the next level and then now that you've had more time to watch him. Where do your scouting reports on Henry Rugs and Caja Hammer and Import Sally Great. Just getting fat. I think it's just time speed and play speed bobbin watching the guy play in the sometimes a forty times. Don't match over the place but a Lotta Times GonNa come back to what you see on the run by people consistently do they create gaps of separation I think those are all things in. Its evidently tapes study on players in see. Sometimes a quality defensive backs The players go up against But there's there's a lot of fast receivers in this draft and the play speed. I remember when I'm my town with the steelers coach. Noll talked about. They talked about Chuck. Knoll talked about play speed in place. Strength is different than time. Speed in the measure strict strength. Sometimes so you think all those things they go into You know the equation when you're factoring these players and how they think it only you see all the time that guy may run for four against him pads and some played at that time speed in the opposite. You know we tell our scouts all the time and I don't know that there's a faster guy. Impasse I've ever seen in my twenty one year career than the shock in on. That's not eating wrong. The fastest forty so. I think that we make sure that we're evaluating that Jeffrey yet. Things last year the year before talked about all this aid. App. Not What we're trying to also merge no you have a this are that gives you the speeds a guy so we try to balance what they're running at the combine and also speeds that we have collected on. I think that that's what we're trying to figure out to make sure that these guys aren't just good testers on that play fast in their paths that we see it on tape we use it like a seesaw kind of basic. All that information is even out as we go through our final grades. I just kidding about the ascendant. Discount reports with getting to know these players mostly through video calls as opposed to being face to face as giving you a new perspective or anything different on these guys. Have you learned anything? Maybe unexpected no through most of it in virtual and is the feedback. It's more one on one The we're giving his in our coaches. Are Scouts talking to players in his. We've done it. I think it's it's just you feel your one on one in a room in your loan. In sixty minutes I think is mandated by the League. You have to be inside a sixty minute window in. It gets a chance to for for people to really reveal themselves even more so They're not going to be going off to another department People it's one you in the player in it gives them a chance to to more so bare their soul and who they are and in really the person more so just angst. I know you know we got a chance to get some of the questions I think Jason has announced returning. Today right is that out. Said he's retiring from arm wrestling. That's a good thing. The only get back to to going out in Philadelphia. Now be good that are fans on John Dharma's where that's not good You know I know this is the time for all you guys you guys.

Dj back with you here and balked fun week here at the recent senior bowl the game coming up on saturday. It's been a unique one. I mean. I didn't think there was any chance to sing. Was going to happen. Probably three or four months ago. So hats off jim nagy and company for forgetting this thing accomplished you know it's been a fantastic opportunity for these guys to be able to come is still show off in front of this house. I mean months ago as recent as a month ago. i didn't. I didn't see how this was going to come off without a hitch. And they've done a fantastic job giving guys an opportunity to get on the field. Lend these coaches see some of the top players in the class and so it has been the last opportunity that we will get a chance to really see these guys do what they do and so without the combine Going according to plan this is it and so there's a lot of stuff that's on the life of these players and so is great to see them get on the field and do whatever they can do. Now it's been great for teams to to get a chance to meet with these guys face to face actually between the plexiglas that they have Down there in the halls in mobile at one of those guys who got a chance to meet with book quarterback at notre dame. Who's really kind of fascinating story. We'll get the evaluation of him in a minute. But i do want to let everybody hear conversation. You had with the in book. The talented notre dame quarterback the winning us quarterback in notre dame history joining the. Move six podcast. I'm excited to bring on national team quarterback and really notre dame quarterback very accomplished in book. How you doing. I'm doing great. Thanks for having me inside to be. Yeah so what has it been like. I mean the senior bowl is is all different. You guys have had to quarantine those things. What is your experience. Been like just to this point. Yeah i've heard it's been a lot different obviously with cova these first two days Slow had get cova tested and had accord corn team little bit. Make sure everyone was good. And i've heard that everybody was good. Coaching staff everybody. So that's that's huge at the. You know the receivable could pull that off and Today's gala gala. More busy. We had a little a little shakeout just to get our legs going. you know. Get 'cause we got practice tomorrow and we're going to the playbook so just going to go through that tonight and you know they throw a lot at us on purpose. That's what they want to see. And it's about just diving into the playbook having fun and just competing. Yes in thinking about that like you played a big program. You guys had a lot of stuff in your play but this is your first exposure to an nfl playbook how different has been just in the little part of installation that you've had to experience. Yeah it's been great. I mean it's different. Obviously the nfl. You know it's more complex in every way and The cubans got more command. And i'm excited for that. And that's what you should want as a quarterback and it's gonna be really fun to go out there and You know make some calls. Identify people make some checks and scott there and compete with the best of the best so i. It's definitely different than college. You're not in college. I had the ability to make make some changes by the next level. And in every facet you know thinking about next level have a long run up to the senior bowl after the college football playoff semi final. Were you able to do in short time to get yourself ready for this annual yet. It was funny. I was getting made fun of. Because i have three suitcases on me. Everyone else has a duffle bag. S- everyone's wondering if i have my shoulder pads with me or something After we play in the playoff game. I went to jacksonville. And i prepared with My quarterback trainer will heal it for three weeks and then took all my stuff here. So i've been the jacksonville just to train just to throw the nfl ball around will be and that'll be going to m j p After the week here so it's been really good. So does michael jackson performance just a okay cool so in thinking about this. You played on the big stage. Obviously that you talked about the semifinal game You the winningest quarterback in notre dame history. What have you learned from your notre dame experienced. It makes you prepare to take that next. Step a ton I just my decision to go to notre dame was. It's been everything. I'm so glad. I decided to do that. In the first in the first place but main thing learns just enjoy every moment It flew by. And i remember my first day on campus and and then i went five years there so it's just just enjoy every moment i mean life just goes by really fast. I remember being a little kid. I ever wanted to play high school football. Remember to play college ball. And now here i am. I wanna play. Nfl football some living on my dream. And it's about enjoying moments and Just having fun out there it's a game. You gotta remember that at all times and yeah. It's the professional game now. So it's it's a lot different. This what you do. Twenty four seven so just enjoy every moment you know as as a scout. We always looking for franchise quarterbacks in a lot of times we talk about the way someone plays but notre dame there's a lot that comes with being the qb one. How has that prepared you for all the things that also come along with being potentially a franchise quarterback at the next level. Yeah i think it prepared me as much as it probably could mean you. Talk about a A university you know. There's a few out there where the quarterback it's everything i mean notre dame's one of those universities where you know when you're doing good. Everybody loves you when you're not doing everybody hates you and that's just kind of the. That's that's part of it and there's some other spots around the country where that target on your back is really big and notre dame is one of those and but qb that that's why he played qb in my opinion you on all that you know. It's part of the game as part of the position and notre dame. Stop everything just how to handle that handle that adversity and at the end of the day. It's about eleven guys on your team on the field. You know going after china achieve one goal and that's those are the people that truly matter at the end of the day but notre dame just ready for all that no doubt about it. We were lucky people. We're fortunate enough to have some ruining season. So was all it was all love. So you're here coaches one of my favorites. Brian kelly now. I know he can be a little hard. Oh quarterbacks What is it like playing for someone who's very very demanding when it comes to the performance of the expectations at the quarterback position. Yeah coach kelly's awesome. It's been great He's done a good job of you know being not just a coach but a mentor for me He knows what it's like to be in the spotlight notre dame you know and He was in our meeting room at people always wonder where coach kelly during the meetings. Where he's in the qb moon room and It does that because he cares and the understands what we go through and everything. It takes to be a quarterback at one level especially at notre dame. So i give a lot of credit to him for just getting me ready. You know mentally and He's been a phenomenal coach. He's been a mentor. He's he's taught me a ton and I think he's close to being the winningest coach there so excited for him to to achieve that. Okay so one final questions for you so now with the down senior bowl and it's like the biggest job interview that you can have when it comes to the pros. What are some of the things you want to accomplish this week so that compete show that i'm having that love football not just like it. I wanna go out there. And the best of the best are out here and s fun and Just from everything from the meeting rooms. Two to one on one tree in this Like the big interview of your life because it is and that it should have fun with it and Just wanna go there. Shall i can compete. So i can throw with everybody run with everybody and then that can lead. I wanted command. Everybody and i wanna score points because that's my job with s cool man. We really excited to see you. Play this weekend vessel to this week. In what joining the six pack. Ask down at the senior bowl right on. Thank you very much. I what was your takeaway. There get a chance to to visit with the book. he he's. he's a polish kid. He's a kid who certainly understands everything that is that comes along with playing the position and you know if you want someone that is prepared to period to handle all the the rigors. I think he understands that. And he can't do that. And i think when you look at the league and the way the league is trending with practice squad spots in all of these other things. I think he is. Someone that teams will identify as adele bella mental quarterback. They will give him an opportunity to kinda work on his game on the practice field and they be. He gets an opportunity to play down the line so look. I'm very optimistic about his chances. Because you're talking about the winningest quarterback in notre dame football history. He understands how to drive the car and get it to the winter circle. I think there's a value to that. Yeah i feel like there's like the luxury versions of cars and you kind of go down right. So i would say mayfield of i'll of quarterback's probably the luxury version. And then you go from there then you have like the mix sore lease. You have ian books in there. You've got a colt mccoy. All kinds of that same type of quarterback it just depends on what tier within that style quarterback yar. I think it depends on the system. I think his mobility is an asset. And i'm coming off of the fact that we saw john wolford star game and was going to potentially study playoff game by the way. That's the story is more and so of john. Wolford can play based on his accomplishments in college. I think you have to. At least consider in entertain. The possibility of ian book potentially being gathered qatar games in this league. We'll get some of these other players hear from the senior bowl. What we thought from the week but i do want to roll one more interview. You had a chance to To put together and that's to visit with a guy who coming into the week. One of the highest rated players in this year's game unfortunately get a little bit nicked up. But that's levi ricky the very talented defensive tackle from the university of washington buck. You had a chance to visit with him. Here's that conversation during the move. The sticks podcast. Liba owen zuri kay. How're you doing man. I'm doing what about you. Everything is grey. Can't complain we've been watching for longtime are really excited about you're pretentious. There's just talk about the u. Dub tradition in the stuff that you guys have gone on in terms of producing defensive players. What's up in the and seattle. Were you guys able to produce so many top players tradition. I mean we're we're just dogs at the ended today from guys like azeem victor to kishan dogs before they kind of set the tone for us and for me just the mice if they have a practice. That's a nasty that they have and like just a dog. They live with and the dog. That's in them. We kind of took that we just passed that down. Whatever generation husky. We talked to your coach You former coach. Chris petersen a bunch and asked him about the culture in okay. Our county guys when you think about coach peterson described the culture. That you guys were involved in ed. You'd up we had a great today. I mean on one side it was it was awful. All guys wanting to be dawes get better football. But you know there's other aspects of we call bill for life. You know learning how to be better. Men learn how to be great husbands lor- learn how to be men who take care of the kids men who they're more responsibilities and do right in the world so there was two parts of those always. It was football and then coach. Pete emphasize being great after football avenue plan for life after football yeah. He's one of the great leaders. Did i've been around in. His a retirement was a bit of surprise. But you're also there with jimmy. Lake and jimmy was d. coordinator. He's now being a head coach. Tim a little bit about jimmy. Like jimmy laying loves any he. He's just energy do got energy smart as l. battles. I mean is a real leader. I love i love coast lake from the jump from when he was our dc when he was just db coach. And then goes oh. It's like you know so. You had a tough choice to make this season in terms of the pandemic kobe. Nineteen you elected to opt out. How do you get better at playing football without playing in the fall you watch a lot of film and you do a lot of on air you know you you go get your bags and you do backward to go get you. Maybe a coach come out and he worked with him. So is this film and just get work and on air trying to keep your body in doing football movements got a chance to put the passback on for a little bit at the senior bowl. You got a chance to get in and wanna ones team. And that's what was that like. How did you feel The rust off being back on the field so good. I felt explosive. I felt like. I felt like i was where i was supposed to be. So felt real good. You know it's funny. It's funny going back. And before you practice on tuesday while watching the tape and being able to watch you move is the thing that everyone covets in the national football league's it into your deficits that could rush the past when you think about your game. What did stress again. Yup and the strength is my get off my hands. They my pass rush. I think that's the three main aspects that i like to focus on three main aspects. Do gooden you know thinking about that. Who are some of the guys that you've pad in your game after that. You look at on sundays. You like man. I i think i can add a little piece of their game tomorrow. The generally watch like jeremy mccoy or chris jones then if i wanna put some some sleet into my toolbox i watch aaron donald and work on work stuff like that. I mean. that's that's not. That's not bad decrease. Jones thing is fascinating to me. Because what is it about. Chris jones that you really like. What is it that you're studying him. yeah for him. August love his hand. Placements allow does pass rush and know kinda starts off with his hands and a shock for gerald mccoy up. It's more of his. Get off and how that helps minutes past rush. So i kind of go back and forth on those guys okay. So we're gonna go all the way back to high school Coming from the dallas area. You played it outta high school with calum. Murray you guys want fifty seven games in row and three state titles What is that like like when you play for one like that. What kind of things do you learn when you win like that all the time when you win like that you really learn how to win like you like. We didn't just win because we won we. We operated like a college. Alan high school football practice wasn't a joke. We went out there. We did our drills. Everything was ten bowed. We jogged everywhere. So it was like the real deals. That's why the college high school to college trends transition wasn't too big like allan. Allan coaches did a good job operating like it was call it so we weren't surprised by the lands at all. We're expecting a we work from you. Know it's funny. Because ev having spent time in texas with high school athletes in texas there. There's some people that believe they calum. Murray might have been the best high school player that ever play in. The state of texas. Haven't been his teammate. What was he like as a high school player. He's real cool real real till dude like to himself but real and talk to everybody real cool dialing we love collar a lot of confidence lot of slag to them so cool guy for sure why. I can't imagine because i see him on on. Nfl games on sunday running round and he's running past everybody so like a high school game. What what does that look like. What does this be like on the high school level of I'll think can touch them back like we would watch him by against people and he's just burning everybody so it's like i just feel bad for teams. That's what you gotta do. Team teams came up to players. And you know the corners every their linebackers were probably banking like probably not going to get to this guy. But i got contain concern them or do something. Okay so one of the things that we like to do with every play we like to have you guys dig into the memory bank and tell us what is the greatest. Play that you ever participated him. The greatest player ever participated in your greatest play. College is giving us both okay and high school i think. Karen what seamless facing. I think was a florida team but a a blocked field goal and a blocked it. My friend tried to grab the ball. But a juggled in the air psychotic around for the considered that such whenever i two points but i was burning every i'll still like i wrote it afford three out there. Okay so we call. It was the greatest. Play that you produce. I think you'll a camera will year was maybe two thousand eighteen bottles versus washington state and as a snowy game i remember i defeated I wanted to write a blew through. Blew past the guard and tackle. I li like split them in half and i hit the girder back. I think it was gardner. Minshew you. I hate them. He threw the ball. It was obviously be became carbon on the seahawks picked it off scored a touchdown so that felt good and it just felt good to do it in the snow related. That's crazy so This process is all different now. Covert the pandemic is eliminated the common. So all you have is your your pro day in those things. So how do you get ready to show scouts that a man you the top interior defender in the class thing. This the senior is a good upgrade opportunity to do it for sure. Also without i mean. We're just preparing. I'm xs in san diego so just for barron for when on the pro day and got to be on point. Gotta be fast. Got be quick and all that stuff just preparation is what it is will man. We're we're looking forward to watching you not only performance senior bowl but down at your pro day. We certainly would be all eyes on you because you wanna guys who seeing so best of luck to you going for sarah. I appreciate that impressive guy. You know impressive guy really One of the fast any case studies because we didn't get a chance to see him play this last year. I thought you saw some real good flashes. There particularly on tuesday's practice. He's a he's a guy who has dominant potential when you look at his combination of size lithograph. Lettuce says he can be guided as a terror on the inside when you watch him get into office goers either by quickly album new ring them to shoot the gap or by using his length to take him down straight down the middle of pipe. Here's a guy that has a handful and to see what he was able to flash after a year way man you just know that when he gets back into the rhythm in the groove thinks he is going to be a guy that can be a really really disrupt play at the next level. It no doubt. I'm a big fan of his game. when you look at this senior bowl group buck is their position groupers are one takeaway that stands above the rest from this year's class torpedo thing. We talked about it all week. I think the offensive line has been really really good. I mean there's so many guys that we can talk about your your your pick. I'm gonna leave you. Wisconsin whitewater star but look jameson from cincinnati. This stands out to me. Just because of the athleticism. And i think for so long. We've been trying to find guys who are athletic enough to deal with what i call those superheroes coming off the edge. He is athletic enough to be able to do it. His lateral quickness is ability to move the is length his anchor. All those things to me are trending upward. I think with more time and more reps. He's going to be a guy that's not only a solid starter but he's gonna be a high end starter somewhere. I i do think it's a really good group You know a couple of guys. You mentioned quinn minors. They're from wisconsin whitewater. He didn't have a season this year. he's just been working out apparently like a madman because he's been really dominant Both the the one on ones in a team section they guys like allie marquette. Alex kappa obviously both with the bucks of come through this game and small school guys think ryan jensen another one for the bucks. A small school players that have really turned into outstanding prose. not good players outstanding pros and one of the things you have to do when you're plant level. We always say it right. I don't need to look up your number. If i if i pop on a wisconsin whitewater tape i better be able to find the nfl prospect within four or five plays listed not only dominated that level. He's been dominant down here at the recent senior bowl and looks to me every bit like a second round type player at worst he might ended up climbing up higher than that based off. What we've seen in this game so he's been great creed humphrey and other centers from oklahoma It's definitely gonna find his way into my top fifty based off what i've seen this week. He's been really good. Jalen more from western michigan has been solid rains there from state set a solid week. He's been a good player. That's on the national team. You over to the american side. Deontay smith from east carolina. Buck on what you think but anyways had a better week than him at tackle and guard he's been outstanding. You know it's funny. Dj when you talk about the guys that really stood up like when minor you create. Humphry has been there but deontay smith has been every bit as impressive as all. Those guys. his village of play gourd anti-alcohol is important adds value his limited his control. I just think his patients in his control to me has been very very impressive because a lot of times when you get down here you're anxious you're eager you're trying to kind of get into the defense laminant. What he's been able to do is mix in how he goes about. Sometimes quick says sometimes he plays it slow and deliberate. Here's just a very polished play. And i don't know if. I thought that he was going to be this polish. When i've had a chance to study is tape thirty five and a quarter inch arms. He's always what to do with them. It makes life a lot easier so he's been awesome Some other take was i think. Receivers we kinda came into this week. No one it was going to be a good group Canarias tony was highest-rated. Had coming in here. But he's had some drops this week. Man you can still see the juice. In the suddenness you absolutely conceded. Houston the suddenness and i think you have to kinda great him for what he is. He is a dominant big play. Play when you put the ball in his hands. The magic happens He's asam drops. But i think the most important trait. I'm looking for down here. Is who has juice. And who doesn't in he has juice and i think that matters because let's be honest. Dj we're coming off of a championship game where we saw the kansas city chiefs. We've seen how their speed and explosiveness change the way that you have to play on both sides of the ball. I think more teams are hunting spe- gas when it comes to it. I think because of that career stone is going to be a guy. That is a hot commodity. Some other wideouts the to clemson kids in my rogers in the slot. he's been outstanding Really been impressed with him just how strong he is. He's been great his teammate. Their cornell powell really smooth strong route runner. Somebody that when you watch them. I tape one of the things. I loved about him. He's a gunner on punt. He's outstanding on special teams. So you get that toughness to go along with that. Josh palmer man. He's been great this week. Just smooth he can run He's been impressive it. It's a good group wide. Receivers s from western michigan. has been good as well. Kate johnson the goal slot from south dakota state again. This this is. This is a sport right now. That's never gonna be short on wide receivers. they're everywhere now they're everywhere a thing because of it I think you can pick and choose where you elect to get those white house We've talked about it once. We have time to kinda little this play out to kind of sit and look at the entire draft glass. I think you will be able to map out a strategy to determine if i'm a team in need of playmakers do i get those guys. Early do is their supply and demand enough wack and get those guys a little later in ear. My my my value picks in the first round somewhere else i think is one of those things. But you're right each and every year. We see an impressive class of pass sketches. And i think this year is no differ any other positions. Jump out to you Standout i mean naturally like what we're all looking for. Who are the edge players. Who are the guys that can come and get sacks in. I think it kinda crystallizes when you look at it down here. The defensive tackles. I mean we've already talked about who who's available like outside of it like you. Just don't see guys that can to pass the most impressive guys that we've seen is we've seen boogie basham bump inside and become an inside pass. I think this year more than ever. We're going to have to be creative in terms of how we identify guys in which guys can play those roles as does interior pass rushes because they may not come from natural defensive tackle. A lot of defensive tackles a bunch of defensive ends they're just trying to kick inside In play inside this week but edge rusher wise That's a solid group. You look at Quincy rochet's at a nice week for miami as heavy hands. He's been impressive Patrick jones done some good things from pitt You see some flashes from some of these other guys et necessarily been as consistent as you as you'd like to see But you do see some flashes. I mean jordan smith from from uab. He's long in athletic. He showed up a little bit when he's got an opportunity to rush down there So now it's been a. It's been a steady a steady group. There've of edge rusher. I left feeling a little bit more excited about this offensive line group. I think you know. Dj's funny coming down here. Wanted to see pain turner from houston because he'd been a guy that had gotten some buzz like coming into the game but he he kind of strikes me as like a power. Rusher a doesn't have what i call. The dynamic traits to be able to get around. These block is that we see there. Either he's not what i thought coming in or these guys on the other side of much better when it comes to the office day much better than we thought coming into it now. How about running back wise. I thought your guy from north carolina had a good week to see the juice. He's got some burst. Which is again something you can notice when you're when you're watching these practices. Michael carter the other back there at carolina williams being the kind of the star of the bunch but still cars good player. According to is cleaners. Funny i was right in my nose like the way that he plays Maybe i have to give them a little more credit. His hands are very very nice. Soft he does a good job. I think he has impeccable time when it comes to the screen game is ability to run in between the tackles is a feeling any. He does have a little juicy. Doesn't have what we call a level juice. But i think he has be speeded quickness and assured area and. I think that's good enough to get it done a tree for missouri's another guy that stood up. I think the thing that i like about him the most has been. His vision is ability to kind of find. Those creases in traffic has stood out in this in. We're not seeing guys. Get taken to the ground but you can see when he sees it. He hits it any guest. He gets the same. How about the metric felton man. He is so good. And i don't even really know where to categorize them defers day. He's out wide at wide receiver. He is giving people the business. His releases his stop-start quake mris creating separation day to he's playing running back and doesn't look like a fish out of water obviously there because he has experienced doing it and so what. We talk about accumulating weapons because the game is going to a won't play makers and then i'll figure out where to put him. He is someone that is very intriguing. Much like we saw antonio gibson display a wide variety of skills in this game last year. I think demetri homeless also done that. Not as big right not as big but still that verse versatility to be able to do a lot of different things name. Hines was a name that i heard mentioned this. Not like that one. So i like that one person some linebackers that stood out djibril cox coverage who's Real tall long athletic memory transferred from just one. One year. There at lsu talking to lsu coaches said. It was like he's been there five years he just like you pro when he came in their impressive kid. He did a nice job and coverage This week monte rice from georgia. Sorry no k. J brit From auburn one. Who jumped out to me. He was great and tony. Fields to me is just his instincts. He's a little undersized but he can and he's got outstanding instincts he does have. I'll say instincts and those instincts matter and because he's been able to really tell you a ton of tackles in make plays and do those things of the second level I think you feel good about the way the game has changed and unique guys that can fly. We talk about numbers. The numbers players. He's the numbers. The numbers flair. That can make plays as billy also help a little bit in coverage He's a very impressive player corner. Wise thomas. graham had a good week He was impressive. i'm still a big fan of of robinson there aaron robinson. Yeah from ucf. I thought the safety grant from. Ucf did a nice job so those are some of the guys in the secondary that that stood out how about quarterback wise buck and he was their leader in the clubhouse at little up and down outside of i mean there are now but i think mack jones is guy coming into a mcdonalds was. The cream of the crop was really his showcase. And i think it will continue to be. I think the thing that he brings has been the decision making ability and the way that he plays the game being able to throw a ball with touch time again a patient. I think when you stack them up compared to other guys that are in attendance. He's different I can see why there is some fascination intrigue about his game potential. Because i believe you put mack jones on a good team in the fully. I think he can drive the boat and be really really good for all right last thing as we wrap this up here. I'm curious if you had the same biggest takeaway from the week and that was seen our coverage and being able to see the shots in the stands shocked that more of our scouting brethren didn't put on a lot of weight during the quarantine. We're gonna see some larger versions of our friends that we haven't seen in quite some time. But i'm good the look good. I think people have been locked away. They found a way to invest in. Peleton's spin bikes in home gym equipment. And they're just committed to working out because all they're not even able to go on the road and do skulk also everybody's just at home so you got a break the day and so there's no excuse for not be able to get a daily workout in Before you why stay maybe a little stretching. Cool down afterwards and so. That's what we're getting. After i know i was encouraged i did not see that anyways. Thank you again for just grinding on all these interviews talking with these dudes in the evenings there long days and then you put an even more time in the evening so appreciate you man now. Mattis is all good man. You know how the team goes like. Sometimes they have to do it. But you gotta make the law flight to to mobile from studio. You'll be on location so it should be a lot of fun and we will be there We're gonna have by the way you had a great conversation with najji harris. So that'll be on. Monday's episode will roll that back. So the town running back from alabama book. You had a chance to catch up with him so be on the lookout for that. That's going to do it for today.

The Kist & Solak Show #31: Injuries, Panic, Trades, & All-22

"Hey, guys. This is John Stolnis from the good fight and the Phillies podcast hitting season man. The two thousand eighteen season was well. It was interesting and the upcoming off season looks to be even more interesting. So if you wanna stay up to date on all things Phillies this off season subscribed to the good fight podcast feed and get my podcast hitting season as well as continued success hosted by Justin clue and Liz Rozier and the dirty inning, which looks at the worst innings in Phillies history. Seriously, it's Larry us and you'll love it all on the good fight podcast feed. Michael kissed Benjamin so lack. It's the kissed and Solex show presented by SP nation and leaving green nation. You are flying high on that kissed and select show episode. Thirty one brought to you by the fine folks at Espy nation and bleeding green nation. I am your host. Michael kissed follow me on Twitter at Michael kissed NFL as always I'm joined by the best dog on co host in the game Mr. eight year streak without a bad day. He is Benjamin so lack follow him on Twitter at Benjamin. So that's Esto. AK Ben. How're you doing brother? Breeze back. I know. This is the second fog I said, arose. You've done that because we've done this for a while and you know what I'm going to say before I say, because we're q. and where it's like a relationship does not mean you get the right to just take away from me. And it's so funny because. I'm waiting and I'm thinking to myself. I don't think Mike, like an appreciate Mike mentioned, Pomfret. Think you forgot. This is so great. I got to like Boston outright in the beginning of time in a talking point and you remembered and I'm sad pumpers back. Super Bowl confirmed. So I'm going to give you twenty seconds to speak on this signing in. I am timing you as of right now. I probably doesn't mean very much. Obviously. It probably is odd. Darren, sproles is still unhealthy and whatever I've signed to the practice squad. Josh Adams is still above him. So there was all that ten seconds. He's absolutely more talented, the windows small, he's absolutely more talented, the Josh adults that can. It's a health question. So if he's healthy than he'll get snaps, but he shouldn't be expected to be here long term because he's probably not gonna stay healthy prison, tire NFL career cheating took a little low though, is about twenty five seconds. I have to say that I feel very passionately. Usually what we do today, this schedule during the week is we do some all twenty two film review in really, really break it down. But some things have happened to end. Some things are happening that kinda gotten away with that. So we're going to get to the all twenty two is going to be later on the show. It's going to be a little bit later than it usually is. So we apologize for data that's that's something that you tune in for. But the big news today for the eagles second year player, Derek Barnett has to shut it down for the season and go under the knife due to a shoulder injury. A Barnette had two and a half sacks so far. This season seventeen pressures wasn't real impactful on a consistent basis as a pass rusher and doesn't raked terribly high for pro football focus, Pasha productivity. But he did have the huge sack against the colts to close that game out. And as we have often spoke about how suburban he has been against the run this year and the numbers reflect that for pro football focus among defensive ends hearing seventh in the league for run, stop percentage totaling. Eight stops on sixty four run snaps, which puts him in league with guys like Brennan Graham and Judea beyond clowney, in that area of his game for production. He first appeared on the injury report for this same shoulder injury before the week, five game against the Minnesota Vikings. He sat week six, he played half this naps against Carolina, but just isn't. Able to recover or play through it and Ben, this is yet another blow in a string of blows impacting the eagles team. This year, you'll get their injury reserve list on the defensive side of the ball, just on the defense. He joins Ronnie McLeod, destiny vile, and Paul were low. Also, TIMMY Jernigan. His NF I am Chris Maragos might apple ganger is on the pup list. We've talked all season about not getting a week of stability on this roster guys are coming in guys are coming out on both offense and defense concentrations are having to be made, which has to be incredibly tough for the chemistry of those units and planning week to week for the coaching staff has got to be educated to challenge. I've had this feeling for a bit now Ben, that these injuries and these problems weren't going to stop happening, and it would prevent us from reaching this ability needed to make a serious run an boom today. Barnett goes down. At what point do you just to say it's it's it's too much to be able. To a stand even though with with what we need to overcome that last season, which was a monumental feet. But Ben, I'd be lying if I didn't say that I'm feeling a bit like seriously dejected right now about the whole situation. And maybe it's because I also paraphrased the IMP of the perverse by Edgar Allan Poe in an article today which nobody noticed, and it's about the narrator self destructive impulses. And it reminded me of the eagles offense, but regardless may be ben-. You're a cheery guy, right? Yes. Maybe you can show me the bright side of this situation decorate was the fourth most impactful pass, rush, NFL eagles. I mean, like I got with love obviously, like people now, like I don't. I'm not Super Bowl on Derek by not as a player. I got love for for the snap said, he gives these fantastic Rhonda's arguing that Fletcher Cox, Michael Bennett, Chris longer all more impactful pass rushers off a film for me. Then Derek, why not is the fourth most impactful bass rusher? Now he takes over half of the snaps and in the eagles love to use a rotation. And now they're thinner that defense. Line. I recognize that that is, you know, can be seen as an issue to me an uptick of Michael Bennett and Chris long snaps is good news, right? Obviously they have to be conditioned enough to still be at the same speed in the fourth quarter, and that's we have to see. But for me, like on clear pass, rushing downs snaps that Chris long getting over Derek Barnett is good news in my opinion, on terms of like win now sort of a situation. It's obviously not good, good news for Derek Barnet's development on this. We have to recognize this is a terrible shame because more net seemed to be putting some good stuff together in his hand usage seemed to be improved in know. I thought he was playing better in year two than he wasn't near one which should be expected, but it's good to see. Obviously on that for this to happen is is terribly upsetting. It's funny a friend of the podcast Brennan extra just said to me like he's perfectly on the on the Brandon Graham track now. 'cause Brandon, Graham had a similar set back. I believe his second year might have been is third years. I've been saying for a long time if Derek when that's going to be success. Russia needs to do so in the mold of Brandon Graham. So it's true. The stars are aligning. I do not think the loss of Derek net and the subsequent edition of Josh sweat affects the Philadelphia Eagles defensive line ability generate pressure as much as everybody else does. I simply don't look real high on jobs wet. I mean, who who'd you have ranked higher sweat or Barnett hollyhead higher grade on Josh sweat. I had comfortably higher-grade on Josh sweat and Josh sweat. Those you don't follow the draft very closely. Sweat fell to the fourth round in part because he has not disassembly to j. j. some pretty significant knee concerns a. He had a near amputation level injury in his freshman year of college in Hayes, practice counts at Florida state were mandated Imatra modulated accordingly, right? He was he never was a full practice participant for four years before to state because they just didn't want to risk undo the damage to his knee. He wears the brace whenever he plays that being said, Josh wet is more explosive player than Derrick Barnett from what I see on tape. And I think he's more powerful. Player, and I think he's got good length. Derek Barnett has better rush moves for shore, and there's a chance, you know, I'm not saying Josh, what's going to be as impactful as a pass rusher in year two as in your one, Dirk wasn't near too. But to me, Josh sweat is a higher ceiling player who could do more few in the long term and with the fact that Philadelphia is probably losing Chris long after this season may or may not lose Brandon Graham depending on his contract situation and can move on from Michael Bennett. If they want to, Josh sweat has already taken inside and outside reps for the for the eagles snaps that he's played his huge opportunity here to earn a lot of playing time next year in ten of dictate what Philadelphia does with the personnel on that side of the ball. My salient points this part of the reason the eagles defense struggled in the fourth quarter against the Panthers in front of the reason they struggled in other games than against Tennessee in overtime. It's because yet they were generating as much pressure, but you can't convince me that the issue of this defense is how much pressure they generate. So unless there's a steep drop off infield. Feasibility, degenerate pressure with the loss of Derek Barnett, which I simply do not think there is. I just don't. Then the strength of this defense remains the strength. The weakness remains the weakness and enter like this. There's this big reaction to the Derek Barnett news that man like, you know this season, like you said that your dejected and the season just feels foregone. I like like we didn't see this level reaction to the Rodney McLeod news because at that point we were one one that we hadn't dropped so many stupid games and that that we weren't right off the Carolina Panthers loss. But to me, if you'd asked me before the season who's a much bigger deal to lose Ryan McLeod, Dirk Barnett running a cloud, twelve out of ten times. Right? So I think a lot of this Derek Barnett reaction is borne in the fact that we just came off a terrible loss Carolina. And yes, thanks feel like their mounting up, but this is a much much much easier season loss to surmount than the Ryan McLeod lost. The problems facing philidelphia's defense are the same as they were twenty four hours ago. That's my main point. And I get that the MacLeod. Loss for me anyway, McCloud was playing some doggone good football was different. It was so early on in the season and it's and it's not just about as you alluded to just about Barnett. It is the accumulation both on offense and the defensive side of the ball, and it was easier to take on these hits last year because the team was rolling through them and not looking back in. They were on a serious terror. We haven't even gotten started this year and Doug said this an oppressor and I'm sure he believes it and there's truth to it. But right now, I don't wanna hear that. We've been in close games because bad teams lose close games a lot. There isn't room for error anymore. The hits that week heap continuing to take as far as the injuries go. Ben again, we just we haven't even gotten started. We dealt with these last year because we were rolling. And now we're extremely behind the chains with his three and four start twenty two percent plow chance per football outsiders. I wrote about the history of three and four teams in the Ma. Air for bleeding, green nation dot com, and only thirty two point. Five percent make the playoffs. Only one has won a Super Bowl, and of course it was the tuck rule patriots of two thousand and one eight of the last ten teams started out three and four have gone out one and done in the playoffs even when they do make it. And yes, many of those teams, perhaps all of them don't have Carson Wentz, but we as a team, not putting all of this on Carson of course or two and three since his return and the injuries just continue to pile up. We blown to fourth quarter leads that we should have one. That's what bad teams do. That's what again, not calling us a bad team. That's just what bad teams do when teams are executing poorly, regardless of talent level, that's how you lose those close games. This is too talented team to be in the situation and we keep leaking talent. So I feel like it's it's it's hard to believe that it's going to get better. So you take all of that into account and I think you can see why Ben that I'm I, I really. Talk gloom and doom. You know, that's not my style were pretty level headed, and we were pretty even keel when it comes to those things. But right now I'm on a serious ledge and again, not entirely about Barnett. Can we get a week just one week where this news isn't just terrible. Yeah, we by way coming up so this probably not a lot of bad things is gonna happen then? No, I feel. I mean, like I guess it goes back to it would be easier if we were winning. Yeah, it would be much easier and and you know that losing anywhere near the way that we are. This is a good segue. You know, whose life would be a bazillion times easier if those are winning because someone's because Carson's just trying so hard. He's swinging for the fences at every turn you want to tell him. Like, you know, three time FCS champion, Super Bowl, winning quarterback was actually a SuperBowl winning quarterback. They dude, it's okay. Like new. Like an and Ben, it's not just him every if you listen to the at the podiums here on leading green -ation every single coach Peterson grow, and Jim Schwartz says that their players riven Carson Wentz on the defense, the entire offense are pressing and they're trying too hard to make a play, right? And thus they are not doing their job. You can very clearly hell like circle plays like, oh Nelson, Lauren. This one screen kinda got way too aggressive and he should've Vina's blockers instead of that of that. And you know, alshon Jeffery is on this this little third and five little slant route that he's got going on in the near red zone to convert. And he kind of just gets right up in Bradbury's grill and he tries to box amount. He doesn't create a throwing wind on whatever like you can go in like nitpick on a lot of stuff to me like the easiest things for me to identify just simply Carson. Wentz lay has a good example. The ten, nothing and Philadelphia's going for that. They eventually score the touchdown. Throwing Dallas got the little one yard route. Going back there. They had got her open on. That little skinny posted love sworn in the middle of the field. Oh, they did that. It was like the double China, eight instead of the corner. It was the post, right, right. I mean, try I honestly don't even know what the other concepts were. There just got us running that little copper that Okafor out that corner posted. They love in the red zone. They've hit Carolina with it before they hit in the middle of the field. They were like forty to forty in. They hit the same thing. I know exactly what you're talking about. And so got her turns the route and he's he's a little bit slow out of his break, and he could have been a little bit more time across the middle of the field, but Carson's getting Carson stare on that route down and he's getting interior pressure right in his lap from his right guard. So right into his like into his head, just kinda right down the barrel. All he's gotta do is just Steph to his left, and then throw in rhythm. He just gotta make a slight pocket adjustment. This on the have complained about with Carson before, and it comes down to like when having a skill causes problems. Carson so good at throwing through contact and in the mess that he doesn't just get away from the context in the mess. When he can. Right? It's like a with with running back debate where people say, well, you draft running back early a, you're more likely to run the ball more because you want to justify the investment and then wolves. All of a sudden you're running the ball more than most successful NFL offenses. All right. Like when you have this skill when you have this commodity, you feel the need to use it and Carson's just trying to, he just hanging the pocket. I'm delivering a tough throw down the barrel. You don't need to man just step to your left on watching right now. Right? He's got pressured. Like you're saying to his right hip. He could very inva- in had time to had the space easily take step to his left and he's on his tippy toes. Throw in the stats. And yes, no way transfer on the ball comes out a little bit lame, right ex- third to the window, small would play will live on an intimate and small was out there in the flat and Carson decides at the snap that he's taken the alshon route because he has covered too. It's the same rows, Dallas Scott route, and it should be open until he looks off. He laid polls the field. The boundaries side safety to was left on. This is a place. Up on my time line. You can find it and he, he resets the middle of field and Keith lease there, and he doesn't see him and he just feeds it and Carson's making that choice on third and two that he's going right down the middle. He wants pater, he wants six, put the game away, and I don't hate that. And there's a good chance of Doug Peterson told them, listen, we're going to go for fourth down, so take a deep if you have it. But when he's looking off to the left and Dante Jackson, the corners, sagged hundred fly around. He's got signed me the seventies got the flat route. You can just take it baby. You can just take it. And like this been saying like, Carson is so good at making incredible plays that he tries to make incredible place all the time. And this only talked about in the immediate aftermath of the game, and I got a lot of heat like all your blaming Carson, the defensive done this Atta letting most of the the fog on the defense of twenty one points in the fourth quarter. I think that's bad. I think the eagles bid a well. A bit of the well. But when you when you watch Carson in his late game situations in these red zone situations, man's just gunning man is looking end zone and they say, touchdown to check down. And that's kind of the idea of how you want to read it. But he's so heavy on the touchdown. He thinks he can make every throw and he's got to mature and he's got to learn that. It's okay to just let somebody else make apply an goes for Carson, and it goes rose to the team to. We talk a lot about Carson because it's very easy to point out when he does something like that. It's less easy to point out when guys around the team doing too. That's how you get some of those necessarily penalties that keep killing our drives in whatnot. And it's just the entire team is just pressing. Like I said, all three coaches talking about their specific groups or the entire team brought up the same thing in the press conference, and I absolutely agree disguise trying to do too much needed, break it down. Do your job, let the guy next to you make a play. That's how they were last year. Let the guy next to trust the guy next to you to make that play mats what this team is missing this year, I have one and a half more offensive points. I'd like to make and I know that you have stuff you wanna talk about on the defense side of the ball, so you want to break it up that way. We're gonna talk about some trade options or whatnot, but I kinda like this through line of doing the the old twenty to talk as we address these issues. But we gotta we gotta give them reason to keep listening for the Patrick Peterson in fell spoiler alert. Okay. I've seen big complaints about Nelson anglers depth of target and how Nelson Adler is being very heavily used in the screen game as a couple of things. I think that report to understand their number one twice. Nelson Aguilar was targeted in a little bubble route little screen route because when Philadelphia has zone run dial up and they've got to receivers out to the side, they tag those receives the little bubble. And what Carolina was giving Philadelphia is they were blitzing that nickel over Adler in the slot and both times Adler keyed. It Carson keyed it, and they just. Through the little bubbles aglet one time. It was an opening play first and ten I play drive and then the next time it was one of the first play of the drive in the fourth quarter right now only one for two yards, and it was the second time they did an Eric, read the safety, Kita because he knew when the slot corner blitz was coming, that bubble was going to be tagged behind it. That's something Philadelphia's always done. And so it's not as if Doug is never running aggravated deep, it's that Adler is the tag guy on a lot of these package plays. I wanna stay away from saying RPO's because it's a package play. It's if this happens pre snap. If we see a corner blitz, then we have the ability to go and run this little bubble route right end. So that's that's part of it. And then I said one and a half, because with that goes into is my number one complaint with the Philadelphia offense in the fourth quarter, which there was a lot of they need to run the ball more okay to drives. You're looking at you up clock and there were three screens. Ram. One of them was the bubble. I just. Referred to in two other ones. We're drawn up screens, right v. last play in a for me, which I, you know, I'm sure Doug is a reason why he's running on the last play for me when I'm trying to chew up clock that I'm running as a screenplay is a couple of reasons why one you're getting the ball to that player four yards back with the chance that his blockers didn't get out in front of him. Just run a running place. Basically the same things. The block is already going to be there. Right? Like they're all keyed into the running back anyway. It's not like third in thirteen dump it off because you know the plane saw right, or you know, they're also throwing little tight end screens or whatever the right, but you're right. Everybody is very aggressive coming downhill on the defense. 'cause they're expecting short stuff that's high completion percentage. And that's my next complaint point. I don't really think screens with that high completion percentage. All right. Because if something goes wrong, you have to bury the football, right? It's inconvenient. It's done. You're throwing into so much traffic. I don't really think it's a high percentage throw. That's definitely gonna keep the clock running. And then my third and final complaint is that most of the time. Like you said, a screen, like third and thirteen screens. Rarely go for five yards screens. Other go for native three or twenty, and you don't need twenty and you definitely don't want native three right. Philadelphia got into with third and ten situation and into a second and eleven situation on. These are two final drives. They're trying to run out the clock because they lost yardage on screens. We're simply, you don't. If that's screen hits, you've got a first down and that's obviously great. But you don't need a first down. You're not. You're not racing the clock trying to get down here. We do not need chunk. Explosive plays late. When we're nursing a lead, get me no four yards, right? And maybe you're running play it. Maybe you're four yard play is a running play. Maybe it's mesh sit, which they didn't run at all. Maybe it's slant flat, which they ran once in a while and they didn't want any more like maybe it's just Zack. Earth curling cross midfield sitting between his own, which they ran twenty five billion times and it works every time, right. I don't. I mean, they didn't have been called to RPO's in that situation. That's perfectly fine because they're. They're going off the bucks numbers. Let's run the inside zone with the backside, replaced light without Sean Jeffrey. That's what jeopardy's ear, four, what it comes down to for me as I as there's one thing about Doug. I've never been able to get my head around or understand it's when and how he chooses to run his screens because he to me always runs his screens at like the spot like I'm conditioned by India, beat Andy Reid. Tommy you run screens inside the opposite of thirties, like thirty two goal line on goal into thirty that's running screens. That's it. Doug runs his screens. Usually the forty five. When you're like Cl or like at the forty or the thirty five. When you're close to field goal range, he throws the ball behind the line of scrimmage, which I do not get on. And then he's also throwing them in his late game situations where I just don't understand right. And I very firmly believe there's a coaching point there that I just don't know. Right, because I don't think it's it's on accident. You know what I mean? I don't think he like just close his is in put his finger down his play. She in opened screen, you know, obviously not, but those, that's that's what I. I took away from, I'm not so much worried about the lack of running game as am the high incidents of the screen game. I don't think it's a high percentage clock eating out. I don't. Are you counting that touch pass to Laura? That's basically a jet sweep as as like a screen because it does involve getting that outside perimeter wide receiver, a blocking the cornerback, which Jordan Mathews did not know it's a run and that's the I mean the, you count that as a fourth screen, it's it's, it's not a slow developing. You're not as as likely to get the defense coming back and then coming back forward. So I'm, I'm of calling it a screen to me. It's a run on. That's another thing that's going to affect Agarwal's depth the target. Yup, nets kinda why brought it up to also the play after that. What killed us in the fourth quarter, the Panthers brought a blitz from the outside to the left of Jason Peters, and then they brought it the late linebacker blitz. Now what that blitz on the outside with Mike Adams did was when Corey Clement took the play action, he immediately went to help Jason Peters that cleared the inside lane. 'cause. Decent. Kelsey was on the one tech who slanted created a lane of four delayed blitz by Leuke cly who was an absolute monster. This game monster, but that was free money for him. Come in Fremont, we at out, we got out scheme there and that was a huge play green big swing for us. We were on their side of the field and we just and we stalled out because we couldn't execute. I mean, that was simply you wash that plan you go, yeah, yeah. -at's lewke just choosing to make a crazy play. And that's a situation where I talked about this. I think immediately after the game, I think I posted about this and this goes back to Carson heroism and trying to make plays. I can't remember last time Carson threw the ball away. Can you? I don't think he has one throwaway in the entire twenty eighteen season, which is to its nanna one for NS. Those don't count. All right. Being either grasp and shocking backhand at the nearest receiver. Don't count. Here's what's annoying. I watched that plane slow both three times. I think there's a good chance. He pulled it off. I'm pretty sure he got that ball out before his knee hit the ground. I don't know if it was. He definitely did. He was ruled in the grass for it was whistled. I don't really know which is annoying because I don't want him to pull those off because they're dumb as heck. All right. You can like, oh, when it's the running back and you're in space. Now in those, like put Gillian people around you in the tight end is like all the way past the numbers, what are you doing? But my thing is all right, so you're there and you try to break the Keith. We tackle and you're unable to break it and you're talking at, you're trying to get rid of it. And whenever like this is a situation where Carson goes, I've broken this tackle before I that crazy play against the Redskins I can break this tackle will yet you can, but it's a low percentage chance. And so you've got a big lead. It's I believe, second end eleven at this point if you just get that ball out of bounds. Third and eleven hundred and eighteen and as commentators say is a different. There's no playing the playbook for eighteen. I mean, there isn't right. And so this is what I think an overarching theme is the eagles have really been looking for downfield threat because in general, their offense is very oriented with short yards through the air short air yards per attempts, right? Which the big twenty sixteen complaint. The offense kind of feels like it's gone back to that a do they have a deep threat on the roster Nelson Agla Shawn Gibson have some long speed. Allison, Jeffries a great downfield receivers for us adjusting to the football, but they clearly don't feel like they have that niche role in the offense. Right? I mean, third receivers door Mathews ease never going. Deep is just doesn't like, you know, he ran the Tennessee route in. That's it. So expect Philadelphia to move very hard for a deep threat before the trade line, which is trade deadline, which is all Tober thirtieth because they clearly feel like they need that in their offense. Because right now it is very oriented on these short behind line of scrimmage throws and those negative plays ended up killing them when it came down to the. Stretch against Carolina. And that's her segue into the tread that line early you on talk defense. No, that's the segue you can. You can hit that again, say in that she segue and that's your site way into the trade deadline. See what I did there might see, it's it's all part of the my pre show, which I did by myself speaking of wide receivers, the eagles put a call in for Amari Cooper, the Oakland Raiders at the time wide receiver and apparently were offering something like a second rounder. According to reports, the Dallas Cowboys decided to negotiate against themselves were the only team offering a first round pick. I guess that's what the raiders wanted. So the Dallas Cowboys pull up the trade for Amari Cooper while the Philadelphia Eagles were interested, but that was too rich for them Ben. How do you feel about spending a first round pick on a guy who there have been reports about his work ethic issues, which I don't necessarily believe because I have no question that Jon Gruden has an issue with any young player that he hasn't drafted. That is there in Oakland already, but still he hasn't produced like he has in the past. He's had issues issues with drops. He is twenty four years old. Would you spend a first round pick on a Mark Uber? I wanna spend a second on him and I'll be honest with you. I don't think the eagles were sent a second on Mike silver had the report was Mike silver. Myself. Vice advisor will say. Like I don't. I don't really know how accurate of duty is obviously out there in Kelly, Oakland, whatever. He's, he blocked me because he's not accurate in. I pointed out he's got thin skinned. So he's a bit of a bit. All right, Michael, speak your piece. Let it be known. It's him. It's Jason lockenfora and every other hack out there that tries to act like they have a story when they just flat out, don't enter proven time and time again that they don't have squat. They don't have a source. They don't have a sauce. They don't have Jack Ben rights. I don't think the offers second from Arthur which has apparently a little bit to do with the source of the the report, I suppose of it as more new with the fact that I simply don't think that for the dolphins would've you'd one year of a contract with the guy who's been struggling for the past season in a half odds where the second, you know, they might need a a deep, but I don't think they need one that badly to take that big of a gamble on a Mark Cooper, did you hear the money that he was apparently. Going to request from Oakland or has requested why? As far as his extension goes and you're talking like fort like he like he wants like top five wide receiver. Money mohican go to bed. And yeah, so when it comes to Dallas, I think Dallas certainly ought should have had a higher price point than Philadelphia. Dallas is far more in desperate need of wide receiver. There is also the point who made the Dallas is also like a tricky caps by in, you know, like I don't really know what their future plans are. Like. They've got to be thinking they're going to extend Cooper, but they haven't really seen him play well in the past season in a half. Like I said, so I don't really know is so I think I, it's too much think second one too much for Philadelphia. I think the salient point is that Cooper is not going to solve Dak isn't you know what I mean? Like if you think that Cooper's what you need it for Dax to kind of return to his rookie year form twenty sixteen. I would be shocked that that I don't really think that's founded. This is the third wide receiver that Jerry Jones has traded. A first round pick for the rumor was that he traded this first rounder 'cause they were dead set on picking a first round wide receiver in the draft on naked. See anyone better. Than Amari Cooper, which I mean, okay, maybe there's no receiving the drop out of that Amari Cooper, that's fun. Revisionist history. That's so that's very convenient. Number one, there is in my opinion, the number Lou, there are exactly zero teams in the league who have decided which position they're taking in the seven months away NFL draft. That's, that's. That's what my dear mother would say a hunk of baloney at absolute claptrap. There is. No, that's that's complete justification by somebody in the building. They go rhino away. You don't know that shut your mouth. So I'm glad eagles into spend the second. I'm even glad of the cowboy spent the first. I think it will improve their offense by don't think it'll it'll sold back at all. So there are rumors that the eagles could improve their defense with a trade before we get to Patrick Peterson talking about him. I do wanna talk briefly because I'm very annoyed by it about this twenty one unanswered points that the Carolina Panthers put up all this eagles defence. I want to correct myself. I said, prevent defense prevents you from winning the game. I wasn't saying that was the case. I was wondering if that was the case because we were working out the broadcast version, the eagles in play prevent they played the same old defense that they've been playing for the majority of the season. They actually mixed in. Some coverages during that run. They played some covers zero where they got lucky that they didn't get burned on touchdown because McDougal can't cover anyone. He was ally ability that entire time. But we can't vote with sold on the outside foot Jalen bills the inside shot, algebra sports. So instead we take the street free agent and start him. Dude, did you see that? Did you see the one throw where they had like the little out and up and McDougal was completely the loss and light Cam lake flooded it up there. And I think like a a huge wind gust came and knocked down because that was a sure six. That was a sure sixty McDougal got burned on the next drive. Jalen mills has words on him after a play because they're running their cover three shell and McDougal flat. He does. Oh, it's good. So yeah, he can't get there. And I mean, whenever they played cover to, they had a good. They had a good combination for it and they stretch them vertically and they were able to the Panthers were able to convert whenever they had man coverage on. They had man beaters and they had rub concepts and they beat him with those. And it was like one big play on each of those drives. You know, I had mills falling down or whatever the case was, but this was not a defense that I felt switched the plan with the lead. They just thought they just like the execution was just completely lacking on the back end and they set Ronald Darby up with that slug. Oh, 'cause they ran a bunch of slanted him all game, and he had any had a pass breakup on one of them that I can remember towards the end of the game to, we play really well. But then he tried to play it really well again, and it was a slow go. So there's that. So they really set him up on that. Anything that that that we came out with its. Seems like the Panthers either just got lucky or they knew Prestat because there is zero zero disguising the coverage with this defense, what they come out with pre snap, you can see Ben. Have you ever seen them disguise cover zero. I can't remember them playing covers zero enough to tell you if they've disguised it. That's their favorite third-down blitz. When you when you've got five minute across the board and you know the bring in like six or seven UP you can tell now, right? You're talking about like on third down where they've got like six guys on the line in our man coverage everywhere else. You can't disguise that it gets you can you say, well, what are you talking about? You can't disguise that they make it obvious. Everytime you care. You can't can't people. You can't capless like all this year and bring pressure. It's going to be the same thing every time from the same places. It's all got to be congested in the box. Do can't. So you've seen this secondary play and you wanna put them at worse angles to get to their man coverage responsibilities. So you could disguise a six damn blitz. Norris had cap them. They're ten yards off anyway, who's coming Oshawa who's coming ten. Yards off. I've never seen this where you know I'm not saying coming ten yards off in a blitz. I'm saying you can have a nickel corner, capped by safety and that safety can have man, responsibility. They don't even do that. You back there while you why you want to give your army Nevada, Matt, it's actually playing may. Okay. Tell the Tennessee titans beat us. Let's deal with Avantis Matic's because Matic's is actually a corner, and so he'll cap like a safety. But really he's a cornerback will actually playing his position. That's demand covers that we had when Corey Davis scored a touchdown on titan worsted you can have a mint in man coverage anyway. I'm not saying it's fantastic, like a great idea, but like winner. Okay. And it's not just cover zero Ben. Can you pretty much tell what does defense is pre snap other than the giants game where I thought they did a good job of mixing things up and disguising things pre snap. Can you pretty much tell pre snap, what does defenses I thought and I'll go back on. I'll look that they did a pretty good job, especially in the first half disguising switching zones thousand. I'll go back and look. What about in the sex Ed? Let's had we talked about it in the in the post game pot. I do not know why sports went so heavily to man. In the end of the game that being said the the big issues there at the end of the game, were the fact that his corners in man weren't able to string together enough good place to get the Panthers off the field. Right? But you do kind of have to know your personnel and be able to say, we probably can't play this much man coverage regardless which they didn't. I like they mix it in. I was totally fine with that. Okay. So you're totally fine with it? No, no, no. I'm saying I'm fine with the mixing in man road. I, I don't have. I don't have an issue with that. What they're what I'm saying is every now and then give a cover zero, look and drop into coverage or do something different offering someone arrogate. All right. I, I am down for give a cover. Zero luck drop into coverage. That is something I will say. I have never seen. I will agree with you on that point. Glad we. I'm not. I'm not looking for these like I don't want them to be like lining up, like looking covers three. And then all of a sudden it be sending people from willy nilly. That's not this defense and never will be no, no, absolutely. Not under saying I can tell every time they're bringing people were bringing him from, and I've got an obvious matchup choice as a quarterback that's got an eight yard cushion that I can pick apart at will. That's why those blitzes aren't getting their 'cause they get the ball out. So damn quick and we don't have the guys to man cover it anyway. So every now and then you gotta throw it a little a little bluff, even if you just Trump one guy as a Robert, do stews do something different. The disguises what you're doing it so vanilla pre snap. That's what I'm frustrated with. Write something about this and convinced me on it. Okay. And I'll give you percentages and I'll give you fancy turds on. I'll do all that stuff or I'll just wait until you forget about it. Ben one way that we can improve this defense look Patrick Peterson's out there on on the trade market. His. Cousin, Brian McFadden is saying or has said, but he thinks. Thanks. Sourcing the trade I've ever seen in my entire life. Brian McFadden keeps tweeting out like teams interested in Patrick Peterson saints, eagles patriots source. Patrick Peterson. Kills me every time. So those were the teams interested in Peterson, the saints made a trade on Tuesday to acquire in battle giants. Cornerback ally apple for a fourth round and a seventh round pick. I don't know why they would do that. That may take them out of the running for Peterson because they were already lacking draft capital anyway. Then Nastya raising your hand, if I told you you were trading a fourth round, pick in the seventh round pick. Would you prefer to be receiving Jarvis Landry or apple servers Landry yet? Well, that's literally like pretty much what exactly the trade opposition was for Landry. Really? Yeah. So it and open it when Admiral. Open it when Admiral. Yeah, but who it was a fifth place. I can't. I can't believe any team would be willing to say we'll send a fourth round pick for ally apple, and then the goal to say and give us a seventh. That's that's insane. Wild. Okay. I you, Dave Gettleman I see you a little bit a little teeny tiny bit for making Gruden with the Amari Cooper for our first round peg just because GM made an objectively good move. Doesn't mean they're all of a sudden actually good at their jobs and also because GM made a bad move in selected ally, apple number one in the first round. But what in the top ten tenth over all the league is enamored with busts, like with the is an and enamored with Ohio State coroner's. So the league's hammered with the same type of bunch of them now don't they? I'm long Nobis Marshon Lattimore, Eli, apple von Belen, Bellancourt omens, all of them are Ohio State products. Now, I'm pretty sure they have the Coleman's not starting for them or something or maybe von bell isn't actually probably von Bell's not late. The way they have a lot a lot and then Marcus will inside a Utah shall Marcus Williams. So. Okay, Ben as much as I've talked about feeling the pressure of this season like buildup in me getting closer to the edge here. Here's the thing and I wanna hit this off of the past. It's okay for me and you and fans and other writers to feel like it's not time to make a trade now because the season is starting to look like it somewhat over and you want to keep you. You wanna keep those future investments in house rather than trying to fix something right now. But general managers never get to think that way. And I don't think that Howie Roseman and Doug Peterson and I was telling you this on Twitter. I don't think they're the type to say it's week eight, repre- screwed. Let's not make a move to improve this team this year because I don't believe in them like, that's, that's. That's the vibe that I get when people say will don't trade for anyone right now. Look towards the future. We Roseman is not operating under that on brillo exclusively. That's not the DNA of this team, nor would I ever want it to be because if that's the way they're thinking, you never win a Super Bowl, no point in any NFL teams development at all. Should they see a player, Patrick Peterson's caliber and age become available and say, you know what? This is not a good time for us to be trading for him. Thirty q out of thirty teams should want. Patrick Peterson at this current price point is carnage on their team. That's what that's what I said. When when the news came out, I said, thirty one teams should be should be on the phone. The only reason Carolina might trade him is not the cardinals by trade him is not because air Sonal thinks they don't need him as he has. Patrick. Pearson wants to get the heck out of Arizona, right? So it hurts their leverage. So Daniel, Jeremiah brought up this hypothetical trade. Then I put this up on the BGN radio account on Twitter at BGN, underscore radio. Here it goes, this is the hypoth-. Trade for the eagles. Don't yell at me. The eagles would give up their two thousand nineteen two thousand end twenty first round picks along with our two thousand nineteen fourth round selection. The cardinals would give Patrick Peterson and a two thousand nineteen. Second round selection. Ben, I don't think this is as crazy as it looks on the surface or the way that other people are making at making it out to be considering that the cardinals are a bottom feeder team. That only are made immediately worse by dealing Patrick Peterson in his trade, and it also depends on how much do you believe the eagles can right the ship, obviously. So I'll put it this way. Let's say the cardinals are bottom five at the end of the season, which I think is really safe assumption and for purely hypothetical purposes. And even though the eagles playoffs, odds are at twenty two percent right now according to football outsiders. Let's say that the eagles scratch and claw their way into the playoffs and let's put them at pick twenty one. So you're switching pick twenty one. For another pick at the very top of the second round. Right? So moving back a little bit, there are also giving up a fourth which the eagles have an extra four this year at their disposal, and you're also giving up a I in two thousand twenty. So that's the main thing for me gun to your head Ben and remembering the fury in which I called for the benching of Jalen bills two weeks ago, and I'm still not sold on him as a starter regardless of what the staffs believes in him or the talent around him apparently gun to your head Ben, if you are Halley, do you pull the trigger on this deal? So to ones in a four for p p and a to, Nah, I would not be like to be trading. Multiple first round picks full. How much, how much would that have to move for you before you get into the reasons why? I would be willing to send a three pick package, but I would not want two of them to be once would if it was a first round a second round next year and a third round. Next year? I to me that's still quite rich. You know, like I. Like just feeling on send you might like all send you to healthy picks you send me Patrick Peterson, like a decent like a two or three, and then all pepperoni, unlike, you know, the fifth of the sex or whatever. That doesn't really matter. Keep in mind. This is a twenty eight year old cornerback that is Pro Bowl bound pretty much every year now. No, I don't dispute that at all, but you can't be at a position where you are eggs in a basket on a guy ever who he tears, his ACL. It's over that much capital. Yeah, right. Which you know the eagles went all eggs in a basket and got Carson Wentz. They traded to one to three in a four, four Carson a one and then a four, right? That's a quarterback. Yeah, right as quarterback. But also, you know, he tears ACL obviously. And now you know he's rehabbing, but if Carson detours ACL and then you never recovered. You know, obviously the risk is still worth since a quarterback, but you got a point where you mortgage a lot. A lot of young players selected foreign ends of being off. So you never wanna put too much behind one guy put too many chips on one hand because you never know kind of what could be waiting down the mountain for for any human being any football player. Here's my thing been real quick. Yeah. If we that up, where do we find our next offense of tackle now for sure, right. Absolutely. You're at the point where you're not you're not drafting in the first round for the next two years. Right? Right now you have when you have like one immediate glaring need on your roster, and that is going to be a great roster in twenty twenty and you can't really sign a key ridging's cars months making a ton of money who will screw right. You need those first round picks go get yourself, some impact player, semi Philadelphia. Yeah. I mean, so twenty seventeen. In the first round, Philadelphia takes Akbar net fourteenth role twenty eighteen. They trade out of the first round thirty second overall pick, right? So this is a team who hit they drafted twenty seventeen. Yup. Barnett twenty seventeen first round. Carson was twenty eighteen first round and then yeah. Okay. And the two twenty eighteen. You don't have a first round pick thirty second overall, pick traded back. So you know, Phil. Kind of shooed that first round or in two thousand eighteen. It'd be tough to then not big in the first round again in twenty nineteen. And again at twenty twenty marring other traits, obviously withhold the way your corner room looks with Ronald Darby's contract expiring at the end of this year, amd Jalen mills is expiring at the end of next year. You very much want to be moving one of those two players in the Patrick Peterson trait that is your priority, right? Because you you, you have a mess like you have. You have too much to handle. If you have Peterson Darby mills, Douglas, Sidney Jones, Maddox all in the building. That's so much that's like obviously too much of a good thing like it doesn't sound realistic, but when one guy starts playing bad will be a lot of pressure to put him one of the other guys. And then you've got a lot of to more on a pupil yelich too many options. You know what I mean? Like right now, Philadelphia's already got a lot of options a corner, and that's why so many people want so many different things in sticking Jalen mills that all problem, especially because you know, if you bring in Patrick Peterson, you're almost dead. Letting Darby walk, and then you're probably letting Jalen mills wall and you're not going to begin much those guys. It's just going to be competent Tori selections. So to me, I'm going to Arizona I'm saying is you have a top flight corner who doesn't wanna be with us twenty eight. I've got a corner who's not top flight, but he's a strong corner in the league. He's twenty four. Right? And you can sign him from less money than you would have kept Peterson on for the next few years. I'll give you him in a second. Let's start there. I'll give you them and then a very healthy pick with which you can go and get yourself a young corner and have two great looking corners. Next five years. You can go ahead that's, that's yours. You know, you can go. You can get yourself to offense of tackles in round two and then Josh Rosen's not gonna die and then go, get yourself a running back with that. Nice, nice second round, pick. So in we'll call you about David Johnson next year. I might mice gotta get over the David Johnson dream. You're very heavily starting with. I think Darby end mills that being said, I do expect the eagles too. Probably offer multi pick packages for Peterson, they need him if he's legitimately available. There's no team in the league who would be as improved as eagles would be Peterson is a top three corner in the league right now, the eagles. The number one weakness on their entire team is cornerback like you sound like seasons. Kind of feels like it's over. It would be massive like a, I've seen people say like, Patrick Peterson's not going to save this team. Patrick appears very close saving the state. I firmly believe that he's a very good player guys. He's very good. I would. I would walk back from the ledge in that case. And I, I agree with you Ben. The I would start with a player trade before I would with that future capital because number one, you have to think about drafting and replacing guys in do it doing it. And I know say cap is a myth in it in it largely is, but at the same time, they're still gotta be some fiscal responsibility there. Otherwise, you end up like the Dallas Cowboys, but you have to be able to replace those guys which IPE guys that comes with drought picks. And I like having that mobility in the draft by having those picks available now. Absolutely. And kind of the final point that I'll say here is listen Darby free agent this year, and you've got to figure out what to do with him and you got Brandon Graham with those free agency in Nelson galore who's going to be a fifth year guy with his option. You gotta figure out what do those. There's gonna be some money spent these guys. So let's say Darby leaves twenty nineteen Jalen mills in a contract year. And so unless mill starts playing much better to the point where you want to retain him as your starter Philadelphia's going to need to a acquire a starting corner, either be outside Darby or to just be a starter because both Darby mills are gone, right? And there was probably like, okay, maybe it's Douglas, now's I maybe sending Jones outside who really knows read, but they're going to need to acquire a starter within the next two years unless you want them to one resigned Darby, which probably means Brandon, Graham walks or to resigned. Jalen mills, like you have three options as a fan, either one Darby stays Brandon. Graham goes to they recent jail mills. He continues to start three. They go get a corner by twenty twenty. So if you're worried like, oh, this is reactionary. You know, this isn't a long-term luck Mon. They're going to need to go find themselves corners point. You know what I mean? Like ideally, your starters are Sidney Jones for Seoul. Dogosuds Monte Maddox, all three of them are awesome in everything is hunky Dory, but Douglas can't get on the field. Jones's injured mas- play safety. They need to go get a corner at some point within the next year. Two, if Peterson's available, it's go time. Do you remember when I said, what is the worst case scenario? Or one of the things that I'm worried about from this defense coming into the season, I said, if it's any of the corners, do not prove themselves outside, and we don't know what the plan is moving forward. The only one that has shown anything like longterm viability that I know is going to be there for a while. Sidney Jones, and he's in his second year. We have him locked up. The outside corners have not proven, and I liked Darby and I thought he played Bill. I understand he got beat. I think he's played better than than Jalen mills, but he's not playing to the level that I thought he would play. And so do you pay a guy like that? I don't know. Depends on the. Second half of the season goes, but it's gonna be costly. If you do these outside, cornerback have not proven that they are the long-term pieces yet, and that's what I was worried about coming into the season, and that's what the eagles might try to alleviate by making an offer. For Patrick Peterson, we'll see how it goes. I don't like the the cost of the Daniel, Jeremiah trade, but I agree with Ben, that players should be packaged to alleviate some of that. We'll see how it goes. I'm sure. As soon as I dropped this podcast, some sort of trade will be announced them. We'll have to do this all over again. Ben. We are already running late. Would you say goodbye to the dental listeners? Thank you as always gentlest for listening to the kissed. And so lack show here on ESPN radio. We do appreciate you swing by this was the Carolina Panthers all twenty two review of with a lot of trade and personnel and injury talk sprinkled in, but hey, you liked it and because you liked it, go to itunes rates, review and subscribe, please, and thank you. We do appreciate it. I sent out a tweet blast the other day because we were close to five hundred ratings and close to two hundred reviews and I don't. I haven't checked Seve. It's updated sense that we hit. Those numbers. I think it's a real real close on the reviews on. I think we need about four are for the five stars, and I think we need about four writ review something like we're real close guys pitch in. It's not about our our egos. It's about this stupid itunes algorithm. It helps us. It helps us show gets more exposure and gets more eagles fans in on the conference, four hundred ninety nine ratings, whoever rates it. I will give you a high five wherever you are in the world. I will really prove four hundred ninety nine ratings. This is so upsetting his frustrations. Okay, or rate it, please do that go to items. Like Mike said. It's definitely about our egos. So do that. Coming up tomorrow, Jacksonville, Jaguars offense, like it's Philadelphia Eagles defence, they'll Nate Hackett offense. Blake Bortles board battles, but Dattel's what quarterback you'll be a lot of fun. I think he's very bad is going to be good. We're gonna. We're gonna watch them. We're gonna talk about them and then of course on Friday and you can expect the opposite Jaguars defense eagles offense that is the week of the kitchen Solex show. That's what's to expect. Make sure you keep it locked on. Here. We all we got. We all we need. Hey, everybody, how you doing. Well, that's good. My name is Bill. Matt's.

"They. Hi, this is Jim. Check out our podcast step over. We'll be ballers podcast work for all of your Sixers needs layer analysis. Game breakdowns with a colts in headband and more subscribed. Liberty Bowers podcasts he'd I tune Stitcher Spotify or ever you get your favorite podcasts. And check out the step over a podcast about Sixers basketball. Mostly. welcome into a special edition of at the podium. The unfortunately timed year end addition were Doug Peterson Howie Roseman staying together in field questions about the past and future. This Philadelphia Eagles team. I'm your host, Michael kiss. This is all brought to you by SP nation and bleeding green nation. There are bevy of topics discussed in this one. However, none more important than the quarterback situation. Moving forward to which the organization has made pretty clear that it is as expected Carson Wentz his team moving forward as far as the rest of the roster. There's a ton of valuations to go through in terms of self scouting the front office has some key decisions to make as to who will be a casualty of turnover in who will stay. But as we transition to the draft that is notable that Howie Roseman had high praise for the upcoming defensive tackle and defensive end class this year, calling it historical, and I got to tell you he might be onto something. So nice draft. He's. We're here as we start to refocus our efforts here at bleeding green nation, but that's for another day right now we have the year end press conference with Doug Peterson. And how he rose men. So let's go to the podium. A lot of times this season end so quickly that you don't have time to reflect but just last night sitting back and thinking about our season and our team, and our organization our owner Jeffrey Loria deserves a lot of credit for the organization that he is built here. The character resilience you see in the people here in this building on this football team coaching staff led by coach Peterson. We were foreign six we're six and seven coming off a Super Bowl championship would been very easily for us to say this was not our year. But our players rallied around each other rally around our coaching staff. I'm really proud to city. We've won twenty six games. The last two years been in five playoff games. There's a lot of really good going on you talk about our fans again six and seven on the road in L A taking over the stadium coming back here against Texans come from behind victory. Unbelievable crowd going to Washington taken over that stadium being in the playoffs and seeing eagles fans in Chicago, New Orleans, really special time be part of this organization and be part of the city. We know we have a lot of work to do this off season. We know we have to improve the roster. We're looking forward to that challenge. And we're going to get to work on a ride way. Is Carson the quarterback on forward? And if so what does that mean for Nick? Yes Carson is a quarterback going forward. Anne case. Listen, we we'd love to have everybody back throughout the roster. But as I've said, many many times, you know, it's not about one guy. You know, it's about the team. And we're going to do what's best for. How we? Did you feel strongly about this the roster going into this season as you did last season? And if so do you think that what happened the season kind of proved that even though he didn't go all the way, it seemed like, you know, you have way more injuries. Yeah. We had a lot of confidence in the roster. We'd a lot comes to Russia last year on this year. But again this league it's it's a war of attrition. And you know, you're gonna lose players. It's the amount of players that you lose at what position you lose them. We try to build as much depth as possible as we can and continue to try to do that. But certainly felt good about the team and their match with our coaches half in our schemes. You lost a lot of players along the way, and you had to have a lot of kids. Grow up in a hurry. And a lot of these kids really turned the corner. The last few games of the season. How much does that help you in the process in terms of building this roster for two thousand nineteen once again, you gotta get a lot of credit to the coaching staff as well forgetting is ready to play and putting them in a position to be successful are scouting staff as well for giving us options that can come in and contribute to a team team. That's playing in games. But now grad a point where you look at some of those editions, and you say they could be part of the future of this team. And as we look at what kind of resources we have going forward in our draft picks and our money and getting those guys the money in the street guys that you get during the course of the season. Now, you think can be part of the future this team. It's gratifying in a lot of ways. How you guys had about a fifty percent increase in the number of games loss to injury. Haunts of a factor. You think ahead on the on the results this season. This is a lot. I'm sorry. Fifty percent of increase in the number of games loss to injury. How much of an impact you think that had on on the on the season? Well, yeah, I think when you look at at our Ireland. There are a lot of good players on that list. There's no doubt about it. And we have to study we have to figure out ways to continue to get healthier. And to keep our players on the field. It's something that we don't take for granted. And something that we want improve on because we know that it affects the effects record affects the bottom line of it, and certainly would help enor- liens, so it's something that we're gonna take a long look at and study and try to get better. Guys did turn over the the medical. We never opportunity. Explain why you guys made that decision. And if so do you think that any correlation to the number of injuries? Well, we have three changes on our medical staff. All those reasons were given our three all three personal nature. Those guys who had been here for as long as I had been here. And certainly when you're coming off a Super Bowl victory. It's not something that urine -ticipant and making a lot of changes in that area shortened off season. But by the same token, we put people in place that we've locked confidence in we have to allow them to grow in their jobs and continue to show faith in them because we do have faith in them. Just wrap up see ski wash the Phil got off to such a hot start. And then the last seven drives, no points. What did you kind of see as the reasons for the offense not being able to get things going? Obviously not not good enough to help us try to win that football game in. And there were there were a couple of things we we lost Brandon Brooks early. You know, and then and then that point too, we we had the turn over there in the second quarter the throat Zach, and you know, the kind kinda feel as game went of the momentum just sort of switched just a little bit. And and then you get into that third quarter that game where they had a that eighteen play. I mean, it was, you know, twelve minutes, it was a long long drive in in a really, you know, took some gas out of our out of our team or even at that point. But you know, that's no reason we still gave us a chance to at the end to drive for the for the game winning touchdown. And and just just came on shore. Howie the timeline on Carson's injury, just for accuracy state sake. Doug was out here working through with us in a tough spot for him that time, of course, it was on the injured report a two weeks before the by and then wasn't ordering again. And then after Dallas, obviously, he didn't play gin, which there scan taken the first time that did not either detector discover excuse me the stress fracture. And was it didn't pop up until later after Dallas or what your understanding of. When you first heard the word. Hey, this could be a stress fracture. Am I understanding is that Carson talked about the injury yesterday? Coach is talked about as well. So I can't stand by what they said. Oh, we all meet together. You know, we meet as a group. So I stand by will both those guys said they said was imprecise. Yeah. I think again, you know, when we talk about injuries injuries or personal nature. You know, I don't wanna get involved in, timetables, or going backwards about it. We feel very good about work Carson's gonna be having a full off season. We're side from to that. Free one of you. I know evaluations are ongoing still, but can you say with any certainty right now that you're three coordinators will return in twenty nineteen. Yeah, you're accurate in saying that, you know, this is this is a week of evaluation. We're gonna get through our roster this week as well as with the coaches, do but. Yeah. My three coordinators will be bad. How if because Carson is is the the guy for the future. He is. He's eligible for an extension. This off season are those conversations that that you will explore. We're gonna look again have a meeting with the coaching staff this week and talk about where we are. And what we're trying to do going forward. We haven't had a lot of substance in those conversations. And because we want to have relationships with our players where we keep those talks close to the vest. I don't know that it would be helpful to talk by any player about what we wanna do. But obviously, it's our job to keep as many good players here for as long as we can and in their prime and guys we drafted those guys. We're always gonna be focus for us. You talked about fourteen four six after ten games. Your off season evaluations. How do you factor in made? You kinda just forget that you do you factor in the fact that for half the season this this wasn't a particularly good team. How how do you? How do you value? The first ten games versus the last eight. Yeah. I think that you have to even go back further and go back to kind of our off season and training camp. And we had a lot of guys coming off of off season surgeries. We didn't have a lot of continuity and look at what kind of factor that was about not having a lot of guys playing together. And then getting guys kind of on the fly which puts the coach half in tough spot. But our goal is to win championships and we fell short. And so we have to do whatever we can to make sure we improve the team and not just sit here and just say, hey, you know, we were one drive away from being in the championship game. And that's our goal to improve the team. Yeah. Doug. I wanted to ask you about your offensive line a brand. And now that's got a torn achilles JP who turns thirty seven later this month, you got to kill C retirement talk. How do you view your offense of line right now going forward and how high priority is going to be in free agency in the draft? Yet mean, that's that's obviously a lot right there. Listen office line was one of the top off office wise, I felt like the National Football League in and it is unfortunate Brandon's injury. How it happened in? When it happened is obviously last game of the season. But you know, moving forward very comfortable knocking to get into a lot of lot of specifics, obviously with each guy. But and how is alluded to the fact that would love to have mall back. That's that's part of this process is part of, you know, build relationships with our team, and the more guys are obviously front that you know, that you can keep together in the future is great for one of your quarterback. If you're running game in just great for your offense in general. And you know, I think to a lot of confidence in young players, then we got Jordan Malaga, and in prior, and, you know, in in, of course, big v is played at Tanha Tanha snaps in his his three years in Isaac. And so a lot of confidence there to this'll be big offseason for those guys. How? You guys, obviously, you know, have a lot of veterans, you know, someone expiring contracts and everything and a lot of picks coming up in the draft. Like, do you foresee like a lot of like more turnover than you have in past years? And also, you know, how how do you balance that you know, while obviously among the top teams in the NFL? I mean, how difficult is that going to be typically you're looking at fifteen to twenty percent turnover. Your roster in every year and some that just based on Trish in some that's based on decisions you have to make. But it's very important. Also that we keep our core together. And that we maintain the culture that coach bution staff have built and continue to keep leaders here to show our young players the right way to do things. And we're gonna try to make sure that we do everything possible to feel the best possible team. This is in a situation where we're looking to have just a youth movement. We're looking to compete a very high level next year and really hopefully be doing that for as long as we're standing up here. Yeah. Howie you've touched on this little bit. But with Carson you've had two years in a row where he's not available in December January how much does that concern you how do you factor that going forward when you look at you're you're planning for the team the first part of that question. We have a lot of confidence in Carson and his ability to be our quarterback and to be hopefully, you know, a nineteen game starter when we look at will the season what we're trying to do that being said. Coach from the day. He came here quarterbacks always gonna be a priority position for us were always gonna try to have town of that position. We got great quarterback teachers in this building. And you know, we're always going to be looking at that spot and and trying to improve like any other spot, that's important or football team. How we when you look at this upcoming draft. What are some of the positions that you think are strong, and what some of the ones maybe not so strong. You know last year when we made the trade to go back in the second round. We hid our scouts. Did a great job. Joe staff had done great job of looking forward to this draft and seeing an anticipated. What the strengths would be. It's clearly a very good defense aligned group, really probably a store defense line group. And that's both ends in tackle, you know, the quarterback class. Probably at the top is a little bit less than it has been the last couple years you had a draft last year were five we're taking in the first round. And it was probably heavier at the top of the running back class. But you know, we we've been through this process a little bit here. And we got catch the coaches up a little bit on it. Because it's process that starts in may for last year for us. And as it comes out, it's a record number of underclassmen who love I guess publicly declared, and we'll factor those guys into the process to and then get all the information and kind of figure out exactly what strengths are probably an easier discussion have when we meet again in April. Question for Doug. Now that the season's over a lot of people say takes a year to comeback from knee surgery with Carson tearing up to. Ligaments. Can you tell us do you think he was affected by that coming back, whether it's timing? Whether it's planting mechanics, and also, do you think some of the things that Nick foles has been able to do with the offense that Carson can learn from some of the things that Nick did? I think the first part of your question. I go back to the year two thousand seventeen Carson had a full off season. He was healthy. And he was able to go through t as in gathered that timing and rhythm everything that lead into the season and the MVP type season that he was having a twenty seventeen before the before the injury obviously fast forward to last off season. He didn't have that. He didn't have that to off season with his with his teammates. He was rehabbing. He was going through that process missed obviously training camp. There were some specialty situations as you know, like seven on sevens. And things like that that we got him out there. But I do think that those can you know, you're talking about quarterbacks receivers quarterbacks running backs. There's timing. There's a there's a relationship that you gotta have. And when you miss that time it will affect the overall big picture of things. And and so I think what you saw this season as the season progressed got better and better in bed. In his numbers. Got better completion percentage got better. And and and so that time lost was what he had to make up during the season. Which is was extremely hard hard to do. Refresh my memory now the second part your question. Yeah. I think I think I do think the Carson one of his strengths is just sitting in these last couple of seasons just watching observing in being able to process all that information, and what he can take out of out of watching these last these last two seasons. The especially in some of these big games. You know, it's it's we've been blessed to have this type of quarterback room, you know, here in Philadelphia since I've been here, and and and for a guy like Nick come in and play as well as he has and well as well as he did you can't help but take away things that that that I could use Carson could use moving forward. And and there there there's has to be a blend of that. And so I think moving forward, you know, Carson was e still young quarterback. He's still learning this game in learning learning the position just. Just watching guys throughout the league. And. It's valuable experience. Obviously being able to watch guys like, Nick, Nick. You mentioned early. Some of the good things that have happened here. Over the past two years, all the winds all the playoff games. How difficult is it to sort of put aside the emotion one talking about veteran players and potentially bringing them back and what they've done for this organization and its heart. These guys who have done a lot for this football team for this organization for this city in also good people and people you like being around on everyday basis. You know were here a lot, and we're in the building a lot with each other a lot. So when you have people like that, it's hard to separate the emotion. That's why we try to put some distance between the season when we do our valuations and try to be objective about what we wanted to going forward to improve the scene. One of those guys. How is obviously Nick foles? You're gonna have a tough decision to make about him. How much when it's the guy like that who? Meant so much. How much do you have to factor in? What will be best for him in a what he would want? You know, it's always gotta be what's best for our football team in Philadelphia Eagles. We gotta make decisions based on that. But there's also respect factor for guys that have done a lot for us and been part of it. We try to factor that in as well. But the bottom line is we we gotta do what's best for our football team to help us win games on forward for how the golden patriot. You want in? And you stand by the price you paid for him. No question when we made the trade, we were foreign for we were looking for a spark. We're looking for more firepower on offense. When you talk about golden. Here's a guy who's got incredible character in incredible production can really fit any scheme everyone in this building was incredibly excited about adding into our football team. We knew the price to pay we wanted to make playoff Ron. We wanted to make sure that we're putting our team in a position to do that. And we're always gonna per phone the gas. It doesn't mean we're always gonna be right. But we don't look back with regret. We look back at our process, and I feel very good about our process, and we're going to be aggressive and more swinging, and we're going to be aggressive where we feel like we're gonna be right allow more than we're gonna be wrong in this case feel very good about that. And and he saw the contributions that he made in a ba- game the stage into big goal Tate. How have you given thought if it would work out from both sides to keeping both Nick foles? And of course, is at one of those things where Nick has made it known that he wants to be a starter. Because he has these opportunities would not make sense given all the other needs that this team has financially. We would love to keep Nick foles. I mean, you talk about a guy who we've we drafted year and we've grown incredibly close with amount. No team that wouldn't wanna have Nick foles on their roster. So surely as we go into the substance of those discussions, we haven't had them yet. But there's no question we love have Nick foles as an eagle in Philadelphia. And we'd love to keep them. Like to hear from both a personnel building standpoint in coaching standpoint with the with the biggest takeaway is coming off of a Super Bowl year or long postseason year. And what it takes to kind of rebound. The next obviously a tough thing to do. But something that you guys are hoping to have is sustained success. It's quick to quick turnaround. Our member we got back Monday night from the Super Bowl and drive in Tuesday morning and just feel like we're six weeks behind. And we gotta get up to speed. And you think about how calendar goes and even at this time of year, you're just kinda your jump into things and everything kind of happens quicker. So you don't have as much time to come take step back and you're role. But it's a crate problem that I have and we're open the problem again going forward. I think on the on the football side in how alluded to this looking back on it. You just gotta you gotta keep your foot on the graph on the gas because day aggressive in your off season. You know, in your in your preparation, you know, there's things you look back on in his coaches. You know, we we we'd like to go back in scheme about go back and watch our schemes offense defense special teams in. That was cut cut short in your kind of buzzing through some of that. And you know, I think there's different things that you can do a move in for having looked back on it. Now moving forward where you can you can sort of not expedited you can be a little more efficient in some evaluation process offensively and defensively. And I think I'm special teams and then at the same time man, your players are right back in the building within a matter of two months and euro TA's or goal, but you have to stay aggressive. You can't you can't pull you can't pull off you keep kind of the hammer down, you know. And you it it becomes learned. It becomes a trained habit. And we're trying to great good habits here. And you know, we wanna be playing in January. We wanna be playing for championships. And and that's all part of the process for how we in coach, please piggybacking off of what Tim is asking coming off of a Super Bowl year looking at this season in its totality. How would you? Assess it over cheating or underachieving. You know, I think I look at it, obviously as head football coach in in, you know. One the number of the number of injuries to starters to start the season who miss games, you know, that was that was real that was that's a real thing. And then as the season went on, you know, beginning to lose a couple more starters to eventually, you know, have about thirteen or fourteen guys down. So, you know, but, but the fact of the matter is, yeah, we were foreign six one point after ten games then to make the run I wanna be playing our best ball in the months of November December into January. So I think that's what we were doing. And and you really don't know whole lot about your football team in the month of September. Especially coming out of training camp when you're trying to evaluate a bunch of guys. So as the season progressed. We began to you know, sort of over chief just a little bit guys were guys were, you know, doing doing things right in in in preparing right in in studying himselves ready than we were able to win some tough games. And we're on the we're on the road. What three out of four there at the end? I mean, you know, the cowboy game on the road route in L A. Of course, we come home Houston on the road, Washington. So it was a tough stretch to finish. When we did. We did some great things getting ourselves into the postseason. For both of you. I'm sorry got g Nansha our goal is to championship. You know, we put a lot of time and effort into trying to repeat so that at the end of the day. There's only one team that sands up that trophy and has that parade in and we wanted to bring that back to Philly. But by the same token, the character that this team showed, and you know, coach talked about a last year about the new norm plane in January and building consistent warrant winner. Which was one of our goals when coach Pearson came here, and so we're proud of that. But at the same time, you know, our expectations are high, and we wanna continue to be playing at the last game in the year and winning that game. This is also for both of you. Is there anything you would have done differently? The shortness of the off season to to sort of springboard you more efficiently into the early part of the season. Dougie referenced playing on the road down the stretch. While you if you'd one more earlier, you might have had a home field advantage is or anything either one of you have done differently in especially Doug you. You seem to change the offense of a decent defensive schemes right after the Dallas game. Or maybe during the giants game. Things were simplified. Do you wish done that earlier? Well, anytime anytime as you. As you go through about your first six eight games of the year. Your, you know, your your self evaluating you know, after every game. And you're looking back on your your tendencies office defense in even on special teams as coaches as coordinators. And so you're trying to keep your trying to keep through game planning. You're trying to keep your opponent sort of second guessing in all of that. And then eventually get to that point in the season where you go. You know, what you gotta get back to some of your basics of your core stuff that that really began to work whether it be in the run game or obviously in the passing game in. Thank I think is the season went, you know. And then of course, you know, we brought in gold in and we're trying to catch him up and get him up to speed. We move Nellie back outside and did some things in that. So we kinda at that point said, hey, let's let's get back to some of our core. And that sort of you know, it was a springboard was a catalyst to the end of the season. You know, I look back and say, okay. Well, you know, we started with the falcons game where we came out of training camp using those plays, and we will not game, you know, different things like that. So you know, hindsight's always twenty twenty you can. Always go back and say, yeah, we could have simplified back then it is a lesson learned how ever moving forward and something will consider this spring. I just think that when you have a long year like we had last year, and we had a lot of guys coming off of off seasons surgeries just continuing to improve the depth on your football team. I mean, eight is a marathon the football season and making sure that you guys were coming in and playing at a high level. So that you're not taking step back when you have those injuries, and especially belong to the year goes guys aren't recuperating the same amount of time. You lose no sixties. Back in the spring. Darren sproles said it was probably his last season because he lost significant time along the way he left the door open. But the possibility of playing another year how much of any does he figure into your future equation for this roster? I ever knows how feel about Darren sproles again as a person player. There's not many guys who've walked through this building who have higher character better leadership ability and have the chance to go to the hall of fame. So I think that everyone just needs a time to get away, and you kind of reconvene those conversations at the proper time. And that's what we'll do. Jumping off that how do you feel about the running back situation guys? And right now, you have a couple of guys we're going to be free agents. A couple guys coming off injury in front of if you see that as in the as you had the off season. Yeah. I think that's you know, when we look at all the positions, and we go through it Jay getting hurt early core. Getting heard that was position that was affected. Those two three guys who were part of the rotation in the Super Bowl last year in really key guys. And so we have to look at at that among other positions and figure out kind of where we are going forward. And again, we won't strengthen the roster. We wanna make sure improving the rostrum where standing Pat, and wherever we end up coming up to those positions that we need to improve. How how why wasn't one Carson? I pumped up on the injury for the bag injury. Why wasn't a stretch factor identified earlier than it was? Again, I'm going to go into specifics on injuries. I'm gonna let Carson talked about the injury his own injury. Be spoken for and everything. We did complied with the NFL roles do team come to any conclusion about. The process there about why why because he said it was an of Aleutian of the injury. Did you guys come to any conclusion when you looked at your medical staff, and what had happened there? I'm a standby Carson talked about his injury. And STAN by everything that we've said to that point. And again we comply with every NFL. X question. Thirtieth rush average. During this late surge. Caring less experience. How much does the injuries? How much is that you need to improve the running back room. I think it's a little both. I think it's you know, I don't put everything on the running back position. The offensive line has a part in that tight ends. You know, obviously injury plays a part of that. And so, you know, it's how he said we'll take a look at that. As we evaluate this spring. You know, the injuries Jay Corey, obviously, you know, less into that position a little bit at some two guys that took a, you know, a bunch of bunch of reps last year on twenty seventeen and so moving forward will evaluate it. And and again to do what's right for the team. CNA? My name is Spencer hall. My name is Jason Kirk. My name is Ryan Manny every week combined. We've form the shutdown full. Keep telling you. Oh cast is technically of college football podcast. But it's also a show about long care disaster regional grocery stores. We love Tennessee Batman, homeowners associations bears in video games. I mean, there's also some actual football discussion about coaches, having huge contracts coaches making terrible decisions coaches, saying really stupid things or the NC double A's saying released. Yeah, there's lots of stupid things in this big dome. Beautiful sport. Sometimes we talk about football games allegedly.

At the Podium: Newcomer Edition

"Welcome into at the podium. This is a newcomer addition brought to you by the five folks Espy nation and leading green nation. I am your host Michael kiss. You can follow me on Twitter at Michael kissed NFL. That's K. I S T. So we've already alluded to the press conferences, we have on tap today. The first of which is going to be the free agency addition of Melik Jackson, former defensive tackle for the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars. He signed a three year thirty million dollar contract with the Philadelphia Eagles to complete next pleasure Cox. It's a nice addition. And we've got pieces up on him over at bleeding greenish in dot com. Benjamin so lack has his film review where he gives a positive outlook on Jackson pass rush potential while showing some concerns against the one those concerns, by the way are addressed in the press conference year about the here with Jackson speaking on it. I've got a piece up about beliefs valuation matching his valuation. Go check that out as well. Next up on the press. Conferences is Sean Jackson, y'all know who he is? He was acquired by the eagles in a trade in a late round pick. Swap Szanto so reworked his deal with the eagles to the tune of three years. Twenty seven point six million dollars. We have a reaction show on that trade here. A bleeding greenish in podcast and the latest BGN radio devils deep into the subject next up on bleeding greenish is going to be a brand spanking new kissed and Solex show. We're going to be talking about the eagles front this philosophy at the running back position. Lot of people are freaking out for us. We're gonna be talking about the official visits that the eagles have brought into this point talking draft prospects. Also the draft prospects in play at the twenty fifth overall selection. Stay tuned for that. But for now, let's go to the podium. Well, well, I think the eagles Missouri. Howie coach Schwartz coach Peterson for bringing me here. Very excited start. Yes. Want to start with that? This is my high school Letterman jacket. I wanted to wear show the kids hopefully back high school area that they can want to to be up here. And you know, make come true. So this is relatable. Can you give us a sense just from time to got released from Jacksonville to win the the eagles called and everything dot what that period was like for you wind decided on eagles the period. It was it was nerve racking. You know, I think going through the season. I kinda saw what was happening, but you know, going through it as one thing, you know, you get release. It's not it's not a happy thing, you know, because then they don't have a job. So it was pretty nerve wracking. But once the eagles called and. They're really we just we just made a lot of the same sessions. They were great organization that would give me another chance to go out here and be one two can be. And that's all I can ask for the. Yeah. It was it was easy easy decision for any agency different this time compared to three years ago. The difference came out for Super Bowl, you know. You know, I was starting to whole year six year von Miller got franchise tag. And I was number one defense tackle this year. Got bins halfway through the year. My production was at three and a half sacks. So little more challenging trying to get my point across these teams about my value. You know, it's not the teams. It's not up to team to pay. You what you think you're paid is for them to pay what your market is. And so I think that was the hardest part for me this time just understanding. It's a product of situation in my market is this, and that's why I need to go out there and accept playing. Why Cajun y you were you were benched in the middle of the season. You gotta actually coaches, man. They told me I wasn't planning to run to good. And that's all I really, you know, reheard. But if you ask me come out the Pro Bowl year the year before I don't think that's valid excuse. But like I said, I'm not the coach I just play spiting rooms to Fletcher cops to run to be honest with you. But like I said, I don't I just play so to them to make decisions, and it is what it is role next Fletcher Cox defensive Tandel. What do you think you could add coming in here just helping you know, it's not like Jacksonville from route to come in be the guy who do this? It's not I'm coming into a team that has leaders and was Fletcher Cox next to allow me to be opened up and have more one on one Russia's. He's a force to be reckon with he demands double team. So hopefully coming here do what I'm supposed to do and take the double team him. So hopefully, it goes hand in hand appeal to play next. If it was a lot of my decision, you know, go somewhere where they had a good line. Because. Like, I said I want to get back to where I know where I can be into do that any good Delima around me. So coming here with these four guys Bennett. Excuse me, Barnett Graham Fletcher. I mean, hell I don't think there's a line in the league. So it was important comeback and comment and use my talents and have one opportunities. Before coming in here culture smash you, see the way they play you see the way they have fun. We were able to get some in New England sorry in England. And so that was cool. You know, just to see the way they play they run around Delima get off linebacker skiing it up in a safeties back. They're doing their thing and cornerback you're doing things. So I play free. I think that a new style of the league where you just go out there by the mouth and see what they do. And and I like that. It was awesome. Because I feel like that's what we tried to make in Jacksonville, you know, young guys. I mean, for example, reference we Pittsburgh Steelers two years ago. We were that old, you know, Steeler ball. We were those young guys coming in had nothing to lose. And just real gritting means just people in the face. And so that's what I'm trying to sorry has already had that here. So should be easy for me to fit right in eighteen. Gyms or did, you know much imports and his team what he wants from interior. A lot about them just thought the league hard nose coach he wants what he wants. He's going to get it out of you. And. You to give it to them. But once you work for him. He's a good guy. He'll treat you respectfully and give your up. Give your opportunities. So I think it's. I say players coach about he's a player's co statics expects and demands excellence say once you know, what a guy expected Ceesay. Cox plays early three technique, and as well, can you one technique? Do I can do for my opinion. You know what I'm saying? I think is that's one of the things that says me apart is being able to be able as being able to play off on the line and help wherever I'm needed to. So yeah, I'm just here this to fit in like I said this is flesh was team beeline and brought a hitters to help him out. And try to get us back to Super Bowl malate you when you were Jackson brought up how much the veterans in Denver kind of shaped your villi lead. Then brought up that coming into a locker with established leaders. How much do you think that's taking that kind of leadership pressure off a you will help you kind of in the day to day? I thought about the I think it will help me a lot. You know what I'm saying? Like, I said going in Jacksonville, for example. It was a lot. You gotta do. This team wasn't good. You know, we have to get back to when top guys in here. You know, we need to get guys in here speak to guys, you know. So but now here it's just coming here and just play football in a relief. It's a lot of weight off my shoulders. You know, I don't have to come in here and be the guy or say things or do things. It's just coming here and lead, by example. And if you have some say it, but that's not my role here. What do you think of your Patrick news, vans that you have over tier? I think fast. I think inside I'm long so maybe get on guys faster use my lent to stay away from him. Plus, I just had a lot of guys help me. You know, I like to I like to say von Miller has really shaped me, you know, I was able to be with Sean Phillips markets where clay's Campbell. So being around those ends slash three techniques. Mostly ends I just want to emulate my game after him. So me being able learn from them helps me slender faster guys inside. So I can essentially do the same thing they're doing out there just in a tighter box. So it helps when you have guys like that just to show you how to you can't take parts and make it your own. So me that Pro Bowl mental out to you. How how much is playing next Fletcher help you with that motivation to kinda get back there? And what's your main goal for the season goes to get back to where I know I can be you know, last year was very disappointing. I learned a lot about the business of the NFL last two years early last year. So getting back to where I know I'm supposed to be being who I know. I am showing the rest of the nation who I am. That Pro Bowl wasn't a spoof for hiccup or whatever you wanna call it. That's who I am. And make sure I get back to that. So having next to me, we'll push me like lace it. It'll push me. Hell he's exactly what I want to be. You know, first round come out here. Four time. Pro bowler future hall of Famer sell hell examples right in front of my face. Vote worked into death seventeen but was clicking that you. Was that the AFC championship you? Trouble. Your man, we were all run out to same cinder off four body Lima had had standing, you know, we just knew we were doing. I was just I think that offseason very seriously a lot more seriously. I've tried to last year, but whatever, but I just think I just I saw can be and bring in clay's Campbell. I saw who he wasn't. I saw his work ethic. So I think him really coming in helped me, you know, what I'm saying. See what it means? And see what it takes to go there. So now to have another dental should be good. Was benched? Personally. What was your sort of motion reacting to them very frustrating. You know? I was ever happened. So you know, I think you can kind of understand I was not happy at all. But I went in there. I still tried to go to work. I didn't try to be the guy. That's cursed. Not everybody walking around mad. You know, which is hard. But yeah, it hurt a lot. Because I thought I came here. You know, I feel like I brought guys in you know, I was a part of the culture changing and to give for younger guys and gathered on drafted hurts. But it's a business. And I understand what you understand that. You'll be better for you. Yeah. I've never been injured. So yeah. Personally. Yeah. That's the thing. I've ever had to go through just internally deals. Have internally deal with it. Talk to yourself. You know, talk to people, you know. You understand that perspective? I think from and I think that's how it's just perspective. I'm still healthy still ball, I'll be one somewhere else. So you just kind of hang onto the good points. Trust a healthy when you get your opportunity to play because I'll still playing little bit. You know, you just go out there and to show these teams how much of sake they're making showed his teams of how valuable you are. Pleasant that you feel contributed to you're fine. Being benched. Afterwards. Afterwards. How do you describe the season in Jacksonville last year? Just as a team you guys were coming off of that. They're really good. It was tough. It was tough. You know, it was really tough. We hired -tations everybody on that team high expectations coming in now year we all worked with hard. Nobody took anything for granted. Not like, you know, it's not like we went to championship. Like, oh, we're going to be back your next year. Nobody doing anything this off season. It was everybody went home worked harder than they ever. Did. I think he doesn't understand just got injured in every team gets ended. But we had a lot of first teams entered a lot of often got injured early. Hell we would just riddled with injuries, and you know, without death. You can't really do much fourth quarters because guys are worn down. And I think that's really what happened just injuries got us and by week eight when we were done by eight after that, you know, trying to make the team look good from the front office. I guess in the city they made. Guys. Baseball, truly. It is awful. I'm Phillies writer Justin clue. Join me every week along with John Stolnis.

Subscribe to the good fight and you'll get conversations with insiders analysis of breaking news and stats stats stats together. We'll survive whatever baseball can throw at us. Of the questions. Good morning, everybody. How you doing? Just want to start off by saying is a blessing and a great opportunity for me to reunite with Philadelphia Eagles first off I want to say thank you to Geoffrey Lorie for bringing me back how he Roseman for bringing me back in obviously Doug Peterson. Near we'll take questions. So back kind of talked about was about for a while. What why were you so enthusastic coming back honestly minister going on twelve year? My career starting off with started here back in two thousand eight. Just auto memories that I had no from scoring touchdowns to build relationships with my teammates. And I just thought in my early days in my career, we have some special here onto going throughout my career and being able to have this opportunity to come back here, which fill is my home was a great opportunity for me to reunite with eagles into always even keep my own past couple of years. I've been doing some great things here obviously seeing the Super Bowl and just. Now, I can only imagine what it'd be like if you come back here and win a Super Bowl. So that's kind of you know, what made me be so happy and excited about reuniting with eagles had this all go down. How did you first? Find out that they were interested tell you us just woke up on Monday into got a phone call from my agent and looked up on the TV, and you know, seeing all being traded back to the eagles. So couldn't believe it still to this day. You know, very shocking, but you know, I always look at life like, you know, is destined to for things for great things to happen. I thought I'll put a lot of our work in to you know, my career and where I'm at still standing here twelve years whoever would have thought. So a lot of doubters lot nicer as always said, I wasn't gonna be able to make and I was always to small so still inside me. I still have the desire to go out there and still be great still have a lot to prove still for like, I was rookie sitting here son in my deal and the second round pick and just me knowing that I was able to come into this league. And do some great things. So I'm very excited about this opportunity. Different to maintain your speed been able to do that all these. Credit? That's hard work in people. I keep around me built a team of guys and men that dedicated their lives to me, you know, since the young kid. Five individuals that you know, when I was twelve eight years old. I just remember them calling me saying steady, you're going to hang out with your friends. We don't go to this park. We're gonna train and was able to keep that regiment and still to this day. Everybody's always give me a hard time. You never really live like that. But I would live enough but instead of lifting weights I'm I'm staying on track field. You know, I I kind of look at it as a Olympia tracker and herself that's how I've been able to speak because I still trying Gary combine win the best coach in the world difference between wizard biggest difference between now. And when we last saw you when you left. I think it's a lot. As far as you know, me mentally in Vienna professional when I was younger, obviously had the world has obviously coming into the NFL. As a rookie and starting and no have an artist assessor early in my career. You knows kinda hard to get a hold of at a young age. You're gonna I'm saying, but you have to go through things in life to order to mature. And I just for like now, you have a family have kids do everything for them. And I just think about what do I want to? What's the latest? I wanna leave when I'm going like, what do I want people to say about me and say I'll put on a life of my teammates, my family, my coaches, so just being accountable. I think coming to work every day and just putting your best before great. I was just no offerings today. I understand this is the business in, you know, things happen in this business as a young kid, come from Los Angeles, California. Obviously if I can sit here and tell you that I was gonna write out the story for to beat us. Well, probably wouldn't have told you, but not based say as you move forward in your life after every step, you take you can't go backwards, and I was just live my life, and, you know, just want to provide for my family and do everything I can to, you know, take care. Citing moments in your career. Just the walk of fraternity giants. Probably go down. You call it that man, you know, that goes down as one of the best and still to this day. Remember, we're in twenty nineteen that was twenty ten I still hear your voice calling. I don't care if he runs jumps fly guessing is, but I'm. I see is one of the best place in my career. You know, I have some awesome plays. But punt returns, very special and still to this day. I just remembered I like it was yesterday. Did you think it was realistic that you didn't evacuate some point? I never really can write to finish story outta Notre last five years. I will say, you know, going to division rival going to the rescue. Was it was tough obviously building built here as young player in NFL. And then obviously the way I left out of here. So it was kinda personal. But I didn't want to do anything crazy. But at the same time like I got Tony go play. He was twice, you know, after I left here. I was like knobby a great opportunity to go and play against them. So I was kind of personal about the entity. You know, you live. You learn I had great time. Great five years, and I just want to move forward and just maybe to come back here and ended on a great note. So Osama side about his team. I got some awesome player that got some some real exciting house happy to play with. I'm just looking forward to that. I wish I could tell you it's going on. So if you're still for like, you know, I'm thirty two, but I still feel like I'm running playing like a twenty six year old. So as long as I'm able to stay healthy, not take any serious history. Serious injuries. I'm going to be your mom in my career here. I'm happy. Like, I said I was able to come back here and finish off where I started. At the time you the number one receiver here different offense. Now like, you mentioned different personnel. Where do you see yourself fitting you? That part. We haven't talked about it. And I haven't talked to the coaching staff yet, you know. So just talking to how he was traded kind of understand the row would he thought all of these not the coach, but he's a general manager? So. You know, I'm just excited to see. I know we have Sean got Maggie Amine keeps Erz all of these guys that I used to play with earth's some lime still here JP. You know, my boy named Johnson Josi like I'll say I'm just trying to get back in just add to what they already have not really much. They need you know, so me to be able to come back at. So what what they already have is in my eyes lights out. And had you had any indication with him to decide to get back here. Just actually talked to him to say probably yesterday. So he actually saw. He tweeted on Twitter. So as far as being a young quarterback man having the world in his hands seen what he did as a rookie. Unfortunately, took the injury. I was the folks came in and want Super Bowl form. But just saying what he what he did that that year, obviously has arm out the world he could go to Deboer, very smart. Very egal-. Just say he's a good quarterback. So I just can't wait to get with him in, you know, work out with him an offseason. That's my guy. I remember Hsun. I was first couple of years. He was a quarterback coach here. So got a great relationship with him. I respect him to most knows pretty crazy lashing when I came to Tampa Bay we played them. I remember it like player got hurt any walked oversaw on. He's like now. Why are you so mad at me? I'm like, it's not you. But today, we got a good relationship those guys. So I think Joe Greg together in your veteran. Now, you've been other places. What have you learned about yourself in the fit and any particular offense to you look for certain things? When I say what I learned about myself is just learnt how to, you know, come to work and just be the older guy a venture guide guys look up to and, you know, these young guys nowadays, obviously when I was first playing here with eve as I mean, a lot of these guys are young ern NFL. It has to says now they was like in middle school, and you know, how highest move that. It was looking up to me a long time ago. So that's a great feeling to be able to still be playing at that level. And still have these young guys looked up to me and just curious to you know, how come to work how to prepare myself. How do I take care of my body like how may would still play at a high level? So you know, any niche I can give to these young is teach him. The games and the tools to help these guys to hopefully, they can have a long career as well to. That's what I'm here for. But one thing I was excited about being able to come back here, and install some of the stuff that I had my early days when you know, Brian Westbrook into dominated Wadham guys started me when I was a young kid now Mabel to come back and started solid unease. That'd be a great thing. Expectations. Do you suffer yourself coming in here? Now. Expectations for myself honesty's, a just to get come back here and just win first and foremost, the most important thing, you know, if you ask anybody in this building was the point of bringing back like me, you know to help the same win. I don't we're not in it for any other reasons them individually, hopefully accolades that stuff added on all that stuff is today, and we wanna win I wanna be able to put jury on my finger. I'll sat back and watched him. I wasn't bitter. I was happy about the same time. I know you know, what I started in you know, where my career was when I was here. So just to be able to get back to Tony in the city manufacture, first and foremost, each fans are unbelievable. I had great times other places, but you know, missing f these fancier unbelievable like no other like walking back in here. And what did you think about? Kaunda took to word of mouth from you know, getting off the airplane. You know, having all fans and just the rum of everything I'm obviously a great feeling. I didn't expect that you know. I just thought novelist coming in the police source and not look up and see fifty people follow me. And just you know, saying how happy they was. But an interesting story I actually came here two weeks ago for signing in valley foraging. Those just next Fleischer BG in may what you're gonna do coming up like hopefully, I can get back. But you know, just wanted things all the fans were just it was kind of bitter sweet, you know, had a little bit of blues has, you know, people saying we wish you could come back. So I just know what it's going to be like first game coming out that link man. Awesome. Failing. Process when you sign that he wanted to kind of rectify the initial release that we all notice points chippers who's pushing. What they can't say about how he Roseman. You know, we always had a great relationship. Even when I went on and played in Washington. Played in Tampa Bay like anytime, I was I was able to see him on the field pre-game. No. He always came up. You know him Jeffrey Loria is came up in in just gave me a hugging. Once again, it was a bittersweet situation into like I said, we all know how no was released in outta here. So I said we just moved forward, and you know, when wanna do this industry the best way we can. So everybody could be happy in you know, we can get what we deserve help you to have so much quarterback turnover in your career. How will help to know that you have Carson, you know, for the next next few years that he's your guy. He's your quarterback is not going to be this of guys going. I think that'd be a great addition having my career, obviously, you know, eleven years and infield never really plan with the quarterback more than two years. The kind of Iraqi cause you never really established at excuse me camaraderie with. You know with the guy. So I'm just looking forward to it. Once again, I know he has you know, he has a great career head of him. And he's he's a young guy going on his fourth year. So I definitely know what he wants to accomplish. Obviously seeing that you know, Super Bowl went without him. I know he has eager, you know, fire inside of that wants to get back to that destination. So no, all I can say is I'm here to help. And do what I can you know, it might be gains where I don't get any catches might begins. Get a lot of kids whatever that is. You know, the stories written for self. So I'm just excited to be a part of mentality kind of integrating back into the locker room a lot of Rosser turnovers. Ensure last year new leaders that have come in. So have you kind of approach fitting back in my honesty, you know, just to come in and show to work. I think you know, anytime you have guys in this league that, you know, obviously have a lot of success in, you know, been. Different places around the league. First thing you say is how how guy come to work. How would be accountable, and as long as you could come, you know, put into work in guy see that, you know, you're not taking a shortcut out in, you know, you're working just as hard as them or even harder. That's where you get your respect. That's where we are respecting his business in his game. And I've learnt that as a young player in obviously a veteran now in this league that you know, there's no shortcuts to success early in your career the success came so fast as young guy. Maybe it's a little hard to deal with you before about your shock that we hear about all the work to go into the game on how if you how you think he would chortling changed in that way. Honestly, like, I say at a young age, you don't you don't have to look at you know, how I'm taking care of my body how I'm resting, you know, how much my party, and you know, how much you know, doing all the wrong things. So I think as you get older you mature, you you wake up Iseo, my body's hurting a little more. Maybe I gotta go sit in the hot tub below longer. Maybe I need to get to work earlier, you know, get on the field and go stretch out. You know, it's just little things like that that you know, as a young kid when I was twenty four and a half to do. I just wake up a bed and go run. You know, I used to always say cheetahs don't stress, you know, I look at myself cheetah. So, but now, I'm a little older he's joins they they heard a little more. So I had to get out there early and just take care of my little more. But your number yet here. What you think? You know, it's. Yeah. We worked it out, man. Definitely talked to Macken appreciate you know, him than that number back. So do some cool thanks for that for receiver court, man. But it I never met Ono. How much I got argue about that, man. I guess this great things that I never saw. It's definitely good to have that number back. About about backing the team. The only accomplished wide receiver to get trading off season. Wouldn't you made of those moves and kind of what's happening position the way, you know, count a guys moving around. What I can say is glad we gotta deal with odeal. I know the TV's our team glad we don't have to deal with him. No more. So knows businessman. This is you know, you're on his businessman. It's businesses as a crazy businessman. You you never know what you're gonna lead out to man. And like I say as professionalized guide has been, you know, traded released hit the free agency market. You know, just been around NFL man, all you can do is just push best before network, you tell off you. You can't leave it up to anybody else as long as you're doing the best. You can make the better you every day when you wake up. I mean, I'm sure I'll Dell's Nakal feel bitter about anything. He's done. You know, what dozen things different maybe? But you know, as a professional all you can do is just put the work in, you know, go out to the field and play this. Well, we all love to do is to go out to field and compete and as long as compete at a high level, regardless of being traded release. They're doing anything, you know, you can walk away from his game. Game or still played his name and just be happy. That at the end day you put your best before over. Over temple that had. You know, a lot of talented receivers. They spread the ball everything. What why didn't work out there for like your own happy known? Yeah. Definitely a a gray. Stop in my career. You know, definitely was you know, Levin going to Florida going to, you know, a city where has some hot weather and didn't have to worry about the coast. So it was very exciting to go to you know, me looking at the team had a lot of side. A lot of great players. You know, I wish I had the answer for you just really playing out. But I definitely had a great two years of my career. And I wish them the best and no move for Philadelphia. Again, I'm in his green screen got on back home. And I'm happy about I'm stuck. So no. Sure, you guys will be seeing soon out during the field. I can't wait to get around to fly around eighteen minutes. Gee. My name is Spencer home by name is Jason Kurt.

At the Podium: No Hesitation

"Hey there podcast pals. I'm John Stolnis the host of the Phillies pod hidden season one of the shows that make up the good fight podcast family from espy nation look the baseball season is one hundred in sixty two games long and there's no way you can watch all those games so make sure to check out my podcast twice a week for all the fills goodness you could ever want and make sure to check out our other podcast including the award winning the dirty inning with Justin clue and Trevor strunk and continued success with Justin and laze rozier subscribe on Apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. The Eagles are at the podium talking about their week one victory over Washington. This is another episode of Ath- podium powered by SP nation. I'm your host John Stolnis and before we get to the podium and we hear from coach Peterson and Carson Wentz and John Jackson need to drop some injury news on you and unfortunately it's not good Jackson the eagles outstanding defensive tackle who they got in free agency. This offseason was injured during the game after the game. He didn't seem to think it was going to be a big deal. He called it a little injury but he he was walking around in a walking boot and you'll hear Doug Peterson update that injury coming up here in just a few minutes but it is a significant injury. It does look like they're going to have to put him. I'm on I. R. FOR AT least the first half of the season and Doug Peterson. You'll hear it does not sound overly optimistic. Although not committing one way or the other how long the eagles will be without me Jackson but obviously coming into the season it was a a big hope that he would team up with Fletcher Cox in the middle of that defensive line to pressure the quarterback up the Middle Dole which would allow the eagles to keep everybody in their positions not have to rotate those defensive ends in the middle and be able to keep Brandon Graham on the outside and keep Derek Barnett on the outside and now things are in flux a little bit as far as that's concerned to me. Jernigan has played well so far this this spring and had a decent game in the first game of the season against Washington but I think you could see eagles. Make a roster move. It would be really nice to have trayvon Hester right now but unfortunately he is a member of the Washington football team and I don't think they're going to give him him away. So the eagles are going to have to probably make a roster move here within the next couple of days but as you'll hear from Doug in just a second it is not looking great for me Jackson accent here in two thousand nineteen. That'd be a tough blow for the Eagles Defensive Line but again they do have some depth in that area and hopefully Timmy Jernigan can continue to play well and of course Fletcher Cox is just a beast in the middle of that line but also before we get to the podium I wanNA share some some numbers from week one of the season and really yeah I wanNA focus on the brilliance of Doug Peterson before we hear from the coach think about this he has led the eagles to a thirty four and twenty record since he took over in two thousand in sixteen which includes the playoffs and that's the highest winning percentage a six thirty winning percentage by any head coach in franchise history. He also joins Greasy Neale as the only head coaches in franchise history to win four straight season opening contests. Doug Peterson has won all four of his opener so far. Neil won six straight openers from nineteen forty two to nine hundred forty seven and going into Sunday. Philadelphia was one of just seven. NFL teams to win each of their previous three opening day games going back to two thousand sixteen joining Baltimore Denver Green Bay Kansas City Minnesota and Tampa Bay the Eagles have been able to get this first game of the season with the victory under their belts. They did it last year against Atlanta too and that was a that was a close game in the eagles really did not look good in the opener in the first half but really managed to rally and and and overtake a sub-standard Washington team although Washington came to play on Sunday gotta give them a little bit of credit overall the eagles have won eight of their last nine season openers as well as ten of their last twelve and entering Sunday Philadelphia was tied with Denver and New England for the most of those winds in the NFL since two thousand eight and something I wrote for bleeding green nation dot com on Monday when you look back at this game you have to look at Doug's huge Kony's and the display he puts on every time he goes for it on fourth down when other coaches not gonNA mention any names except the cowardly Sean mcvay and you know Mike Tomlin in kicking a field goal from the one yard line in the third quarter of a game he's losing twenty to nothing or rookie coach cliff Kingsbury in his first. NFL game and I think you have to give Kingsbury vary a little bit more of a past and certainly Mike Tomlin when Kingsbury punted the ball away with a minute left in overtime from his opponents forty seven on a fourth and seven and essentially saying folks were good with the Thai. I just don't know when in the NFL coaches are GONNA learn. You are rewarded for being aggressive did did no. I was worried that after super bowl fifty to the Doug Peterson was gonna give everyone the blueprint on how you win in the NFL you beat teams like the Patriots by being super aggressive by going for it and coaches are still terrified to do it and I think a lot of times the media are they still act surprise when Doug goes for it on fourth and one from his from his own thirty four they still act surprised and Doug went early on fourth down on Sunday and didn't get it probably cost his team three points when they were down ten nothing but then he went forward on that crucial fourth and one from his own thirty four down twenty two seven and he got it and that led the seven points and then crushed Washington's souls later on when he went for two instead of giving his teammate point lead made it a nine point lead that was soul crushing to the Redskins to know that they need to scores at that point just by doing one little thing going for two because worst case scenario there is you're still up by seven. You're still likely going into overtime if Washington ties it because they're not going to go for to go for a win on the road. Despite the slow start the eagles had a huge offensive day on Sunday four hundred thirty six total net yards tied for the fifth most by the Eagles under Doug Peterson since two thousand sixteen of course when he took over the most he ever had was a five hundred one thousand nine yard day last year the Eagles game against the Houston Texans in the second to last game of the season but also in two thousand seventeen that game against the rams were Carson Wentz got hurt. They tallied up four hundred fifty five yards of total offense and then there was a game against just the chargers back in two thousand seventeen where they rolled up four hundred fifty four yards and then a game from Doug's rookie season in two thousand sixteen against the giants when they piled up four hundred forty-three yards of total offense. We're GONNA hear from Carson Wentz here in just a minute so let me throw some Carson Wentz numbers at you. The last time in Eagles quarterback completed at least seventy percent of his passes while recording three hundred or more yards in the air three touchdowns and no interceptions in a single game was nick foles in November of two thousand thirteen at Oakland that was of course the seven touchdown game for foles whence became just the third quarterback in eagles history to throw multiple fifty yard touchdown strikes in a single game. Donovan mcnabb did it in November of two thousand four against Dallas and also in November of two thousand six against Washington and Sunny Jergen did it in December of nineteen eighteen sixty one against the New York giants and then he did it also in nineteen sixty two against Saint Louis he had four fifty yard plus touchdowns against Saint Louis in nineteen sixty two WENTZ WENTZ now has ten thousand four hundred sixty five career passing yards that moves him to fifth place on the Eagle's all time passing yardage list. He's already got the fifth most most passing yards in Eagles history surpassing Tommy Thompson who had ten thousand two hundred forty from nineteen forty one to nineteen fifty and because we're gonNA hear from Sean Jackson in a minute. Let's give you some Sean stats. That's because what a game he had and I wrote about this a couple of months ago for bleeding green nation DOT com. He is the most important player in my opinion on this team not named Carson Wentz and he showed why when this offense is throwing bubble screens and struggling and I know some of those bubble screens set things up but when you have a receiver who can take the top off defense and get you six points points in the blink of an eye it does wonders not only to get on the scoreboard quickly when you have a when you when you're facing a big deficit but also it lifts the entire team to know that you have of that big strike capability that quick strike capability and when the offense was struggling on Sunday one play turned it all around. We didn't have that last year. He's thirty two years old. Two hundred eighty one days is old thirty two and two hundred eighty one days old Jackson is the third oldest player in NFL history to have multiple fifty yard touchdown catches in a single game. Jackson has now registered thirty thirty one career touchdowns of fifty or more yards that's second most in NFL history. He's only five touchdowns shy of Jerry Rice's record of thirty six Jackson could go down as the greatest deep threat in NFL history is that enough to make him a hall of Famer when you are known as the greatest deep threat in NFL history. I think you could make a case ace and he has three hundred sixty four receptions. Now with the Eagles that surpasses Mike Quick on the all-time List Eighth Place Among Eagles all time receptions exceptions leaders so coming up after the break. We're GONNA hear from coach Doug Peterson with some disappointing news about Maliki Jackson but also hear his thoughts on the game from Sunday also Carson Wentz. It's and to Sean Jackson will hear all their thoughts here on that podium. I don't think much of anything we just kind of settled into the game. made a few adjustments the halftime but you know there was some place in the first half we just we just didn't make him offensively defense. You know we didn't get off the field on third down in the first half but we got off the field on author down the second half and then conversely. We stayed on the field. We made some plays on down so just a matter. Stay patient. Stay entrusting the game plan. You guys execute well say I I. I drive in the second half yet a quick down. I think there were any hesitation none but half yard so it was no hesitation of gloves going for it. They're all nine times. I think how much did that let you establish control of the line scrimmage of the game yeah even a couple of times in the first half. I thought kind of control the line of scrimmage we we we had some nice run second half kind of challenge the guys at halftime as a you know offense wind control lies scrimmage and they did though too long drives there in the second half and really dominated by the office line hats off to those guys helped us really get ourselves back into this football game and and help us win away. Carson Plate you know I thought he played played within himself. I thought he really saw the field extremely well. you know destroyed the ball. well you know made the checks that we needed him to make he played. He played well. Obviously the tape tomorrow and and see but I think just my blake just says that he played played good third. Turn down down nine okay. What was the he says. Some of it was a little tempo offense. We lined up quickly to the line of scrimmage. thought might be a little confusion on defense that we were able to. Oh take advantage of which helped us there Sean we caught him in in the right coverage on one touchdown to sean kind of split the the two deep safety there are at least one is safety what I thought and in for the touchdown protection was really good so just a combination of our execution and then just stop uh-huh Fast Schon anemia added his first game that I'm excited for him and we side for the team you know degree win great way to start a season season excited for Sean. I came back. I wish you wouldn't have got the penalty in the first quarter there but you know emotions run high early and he settled into mice game take on the whole is billy grits base. Yeah I mean it's obviously something that you know were blessed to have he's blessed. He's blessed to have as well take advantage of that you know and and not all the time if you watch the game and not all the time you throw the ball deep with his speed it it might get a little off coverage from time to time so take advantage of that too but yeah he's he. He fits in well with what we're doing. Obviously freed up at Sean and insulin things. Nellie did even Zaken in Dallas so screwed fourth quarter for big news at parliament pardon for the ceiling outside Horn cycling in and out that part of all part of the plan you know early in the season like that was especially with Darby among not pitch count but rotating basis all those guys route play you know when you have four corners out there and the three played core position obviously but yelp part of the plan on Seventeen Hash down past me for the offense. I think the seventeen nothing kind of woke us up and we can't we. We knew what we had to do. You don't just stay within within our game plan to keep calling in runs. The run game was eventually going to take over in we're able to make some more plays there in the second half that got us back in the game and then eventually win the game so yeah you don't ever want to see that you know seventeen nothing at home but the hats off to the guys resilient group staying true and crosland him you know crawling themselves back into you so much now miles in Georgia route preseason why switch well some of it was by design some of the plays that were effective as you know when we construct game plans with multiple run schemes designed for different guys the ones that were kind of click today where the Darren was and and so just kept calling this number there those other two guys ran wells also unfortunately get the late holding call deepen late in game there on that one but miles explosive as you know Jordan ministry me hard so excited for all those guys Sean. It's that deep wall for the touchdown with his energy emotion that he shows as he coming back to you on the silence. Let's let's get another one going. Here's Pat Yeah. He's he's excited talking he he comes up to you in kind of high fis a little bit and you know you just. Kinda just whispers in your ear like keep keep going you know type thing and and that's he obviously leads by example he's great to have in the locker room and We're just fortunate that today was his. It ran out. Please successful or wasn't established kind of keep them. Waltham mom yeah it's anytime you can establish your run game. during the game it helps you opens up a lot of things and you know a couple of times we caught them in sub defense to our twelve personnel which was good for us to run the football in and you take take advantage of that but yeah we need time that you can so you can do that at definitely opens up more things you know in the second half frosted discussion downfield frozen expensive adjustments made in the second half will so you get the receivers in Jack from the place. I think it really starts with the front of getting more pressure on a quarterback you know disrupting some of his this throws and then just just you know being being where your feet arch is understanding from defensive standpoint where you need to be and being there and uh-huh executing the defense but I do think we got a little bit more pressure on the quarterback there and say thanks with an epic first week of football behind us.

We'll survive whatever baseball can throw at us. We're always in communication early in the game trying to figure out what they were doing. Coverage wise and you know that specific play. You know we were talking. Hey be alert if they do certain coverage be alert on this on the deep ball and we hit home run out when I did it feel Air Montana's John those great great to you know to have him out here obviously creating the dynamic element that he does for our offense and then I know the city's pretty fired up to have him back here and so so to do that at home. I know him means a lot to for this team to get us going away. You did that was huge for. US Action Star out of yeah I mean I think that's just him and I you know going through the entire offseason together. You know just working on our chemistry working on. You know how we see coverages. How are we see things and we just we met those plays in those cases and it was good to see scheme with Turkey. Here's to your right with Sean in the middle. Obviously you have those guys over there. Increase the pressure on even bringing about the yeah I mean it was just something that coaches did a good job. I've scheming up and we get him in and some mismatches and some covers things that you know. Kinda surprised a little bit but we were able to have those answers in we hit does to home runs which was which was pretty sweet second touchdown. Look you so wide open. What did you plan to go to him. Initially ordered you just see is open when he was wide open. Yeah we were on the ball and we made we made the call based off a little the look the defense has given us so we really had either. Nellie or or to Sean on on that one and take your pick and we made we pay. I feel for you in general got their first time. Since December actually I felt great you know felt great to finally go out there and you know as long as a lot of things going on and so to to finally be out here in front of our fans running out the tunnel it just felt it felt awesome. Obviously obviously lose a little slower start than we'd like to as a team but I think I was just good to see our resilience to stay together and do what we do and then finish the ball game the way we did on that. I think nineteen eighteen play drive to finish off. It is a good day for a couple of things you know. It's just one of the things it's hard to hard to say we hurt ourselves early a little bit and then we put that drive together than we came up short on fourth down down there things we gotta keep cleaning up working working on but you know. I didn't feel offensively that we were really that bad. We just hurt ourselves. Was it was a penalty here in some things here and there so things we can definitely work. The jets recession. Has I got the awful I mean anytime. I'm you know first of all you know our our tragedies trying to you know take completion stay with US and in that case they they gave us that shop known it was a foot race between the Sean in their corner and Shaw made them pay and obviously gave this offense. Give the stadium gives defensive spark to be able to do that and third down play. They do that on third down in on someone's house yeah I mean I think it's something you know. We work a lot on it. You know it's third down and Reginald Song. We always talk about always worked on. knew a lot of teams. Always just you know on third longest. Give up take a screen and we're going to do that. I don't want to say give up but we're going to do our our screens and and take take. What's there sometimes but you know we're? GonNa try and push the ball down the field when we can and make plays when we can so is good to see that that we were able to do that. It is time to the second half laugh. Tax Pros was easier to that today. Make it happen last year. I I don't think so. I don't think so nothing that's pretty pretty natural for me. I'll remodel career so it was good to see. Those couple plays that we were able to extend the play. Am Pick up some key. key third downs were joking that this is twenty seventeen. Bunsen what you feel. Is there a couple of years comparable. You felt great. Physically mentally now is lot of a lot of hard work really these last few weeks on game planning so mentally. I just felt really good with with our plan. Coach did good job putting together physically just feeling free you know shed being able to excuse me being able to get rid of the knee brace and just go play ball. you know it's it's been a blessing in our on thankful for the way recovery scrambling. Were Hawking outside with easier without the race. It's hard to say it's hard to say you have anything particular. You want to get a house on. I mean we we always come into half-time in. What are they doing to us. What formations can we key in on what can we. What can we go out and attack in? We always WANNA start fast the second half obviously we were in a hole where we didn't want to be in We're coming out there and and put together and so we always we always as with coaches and players on try and put put together. I opening drive for the second half and I think coaches great job there that wrote a hymn was ruled. Ron alshon surprise the otherwise such as what was your view on that. Do you think that was a passer. Is that's news to me. I had no idea but is what it is. So I gotta rushing touchdown linking adjustments the same game a little bit of both you know we always had a game plan. We kind of threw it all out there early to see what they were doing. And then it kind of focus in on okay this is where mismatches are here's our advantage and so we did a lot more of that later in the game and coach did a great job dialing announced. Campbell's terms getting to the line there. I mean there's a couple of times a day. We just want to get on the ball and and see what what they were doing. Coverage wise so that we could call it the line of scrimmage and you know that's nice that we we are able to communicate as effectively as we did get us in the right calls and pick up some key third downs sounds and simplifies the game for us and for them and just let us go places. You really high steam nearly going. Would you make up his early on. I guess yeah I mean first of all. I love his emotion. I love his attitude. Obviously that the penalty something that we all would say you know you can't do that but you know just his attitude in what he brings to the table mentally he's. He's a fighter. He wanted to show show today Ryan. It was good to have that passion that that he brings in released entire offense. I was GONNA say that more product what the defense was doing was executioners. Executioners also back state. You know it's hard to hard to say I think at the end of the day with that penalty really hurt early in the game and you know we had a couple of things here. You're on the air that we just didn't execute and I'm not I'm not overly concerned. I think we'll get it right. Touchdown Tashaun growth growth kind of put it up there kind of covered that type of thing you guys talk about what you say you gotTa Take Care of Yeah. I mean that's something especially down. There is such a great job of body control in boxing out guys in being strong to the catch in no rollout in saw linebacker on him so I'm GonNa. Give him that shot. Every time you know and I'm believing you come down with it. You know ninety nine percent of the time unless type of player he is especially when we get down to the red zone to ghost snatch up all the the air and it was good to see when I think of him is great great time out there. You know I love that. Guy Hardy works and what he does for us. Situation from third downs punt returns to different things you know he's a leader on this football team and it was it was great to have him back. Conquer the law about Shawn's presence in the offseason how that you've seen it nine then touchdowns just his presence on the field. You feel the difference in those uh intermediate route. I got yeah I mean that's that's the theory in this plan in the hope that with him being out there and then these other weapons that we have have we're GONNA be able to keep teams on their toes. You know and we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA study this tape and see what we could have done better but having the element of Shonda to go with with Nelson Alshon and then are tight ends and running game. I mean it's it. We've got some talent and we got some weapons to take advantage of this off season about you operating faster aw how was that kind of realized game you greater comforting. Yes I think it again. I'll go back and watch the tape but I felt like mentally as claim fast going through. The line did a tremendous job. You know I think them being able to get the running running game going a little bit later in the game and them just keep me upright was really really help us execute some drives and oh a lot of it to those guys like you guys got started games. The game you had it was aimed at men very side and a lot of motion went into the past past forty eight hours obviously been racing for me trying to keep my calm jitters. You know just anxiety is is been you know roller coaster password eight hours. I'm just happy is over. You know first game coming back to philly ought to emotions out had going into the game couldn't have predicted to be any other way. we came out you know start. Oslo struggle but the one moment in that game I I didn't think you know he's going the game and I just kept stressing to the boys. We came into the locker room. You know I've been over here before. just know how they are in distress to my teammates that you know. I feel to half time. They probably thought they had the game. You know sealed in one in the mail going. Just go out there. It's GonNa take place on one play mentality and we came out. Didn't you know as you saw we score in just had a lot of momentum. The rest of the game began going into the game. You know we had a great game plan plan. All we think Bill GonNa grow did a great job throughout the week man we we have good you know ten to twelve days. Just preparing for this rescue team knows knows a lot of great things in the in the playbook. You know for for me this week so you never really know how to. KINDA PLANS WANNA game. Come so stay calm and collective active. you know anytime on number with cars. The most opportunities to start coming back here obviously actually started Arctic game. It was Kinda went down like I literally last night. WanNa sleep all yesterday meeting as is race and I just couldn't stay calm. It was his over excited like a kid before Christmas so I just no no just killing me. Come back and just what what I made to the city and you know what the city means to me being in green colors and just being part is this organization is family is just something special for me so I couldn't think of it being any other way but before the game. I was actually kind of common. Collective is light penalty. I had to get that out. The way now is good team. Razali may until our man I said I know I had to get that. It was just knowing once I got the penalty you know 'cause within a game you know so many things happen you know very competitive nature of the game and I don't think people really know will go on. NFL just out of just you know going against other professional athletes guys pay high to just so much to go on today. In between the white lines not play on you know number which you know like a a young brother to me seen him come up in the system over there and you know he actually came into play wide receiver playing. DB So. I just knew that matchup was big for him. You know I just Kinda talk semester. After I caught the first pass in he next play he came back and Kinda hit me and I just kind of lost a little bit but you know what happens is again mentioned f time custody she the deliver it wasn't about Washington. You said you had kind of idea with their mentality. I mean message. Hostages was GONNA. Take one play be announced seventeen. Nothing's obviously you know Swan. Dan You gotTa Kinda. Get going you know if one more score pushing down twenty four it in Augustan possible but it's almost impossible so we just knew that coming into the to the locker room instrumentality autumn entirely thing here and I felt you know the past five years. This year has gone. Just that's already miss being a part of a team and organization just no snow for win just a mentality that regards to score regards how many points down and there's always a chance to win the game in no just saying. I've been in that locker room. I just know you know how they are does not say anything bad about just know how they are. I'm sure anybody going into the into half-time up seventeen points. They're gonNA feel like they got game one but just knowing that you gotta go out there and still keep fighting player. Go ahead on first touchdown. You cross the plane. Actually I wasn't the intended receiver when that play it was actually like a clear route but carson was like mass stay alert and play with actually intended for our Sean on on a deep cross route but the way they played covers like in and out and you know Josh Norma's outside. I was inside the slide. He was supposed to be guarding out Sean but when I went he took me safety kind of cut down on route and throw the ball and shoot. I ran caught in just one scraping today. Carson had not having cat preseason snap your first game. What what he's thinking Greg Man again you know this is this is his show you know he's driving a car in the you know what is good to have a quarterback back? The has the confidence that at any given time the playmakers we have on this offense he come to the line of scrimmage. Basically you know call whatever he wants. Because of play style we have an players we having our on our head or in our locker room which is very confident that we can all get done regardless of who it is. I was just telling a Nelson. He was lowdown but I'm like you know. Next week might be a game. It's impossible to have big aims all the time so it's going to be games. They take you out. Just you gotta be ready for when it she'll tell me your number call. Just make the most out of not necessarily mandate. They play a panic zone defense. You know in is different because I was in in the slot. It wasn't like I was outside receiver so when I was in a slot you have a nickel corner me and you have a safety to cut you know different cross Ralson. It is in the Backfield Soa. We knew all week once they get into this coverage and we see him give it a signal cars had the opportunity to check me a couple of times on the certain go route into elite. We got it and they gave us the courage you need. It burst games until well. Why's that also gets team. The Tom Built Man I just here for the long haul. You know feel like a lot of people sleep on me. Regardless regardless of what the case may be. They don't even respect. I deserve so just keep that on my shoulder. Every time I got opportunity to go out on the field and play always pat high level spars. I paint against old teams that I used to play for awful. I shoot they had avocado indicated. They didn't keep me so anytime. I plan to make them pay on this score. You see your team is starting to come around and realize it. You gotta think man anytime you're able to score. touchdowns big replace drives a different type. Angie team so we came out. We got that tells now that that flew throughout the whole team amen is fueled as you feed off of you know playing his game. You Know Cetane game. Collectively you know one guy makes a play the other guy's GonNa come along with you so think at that at that moment when you know snap with a finger you know click in and everybody's like shoe we we in the game now now says thirteen point game where seven twenty now so just that we have here we just striving to be be great and no no.

"Great News there's a quick way you can save money switch to Geico Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price and it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more more on car insurance go to GEICO DOT com today and see how much you could save. Good morning thank you so much for joining us here on I stakes. It's in the building. Max Kellerman I'm Molly wrongs gentlemen. We had a good one landscape. Let's get into kirk cousins and the Vikings fell to the seahawks Seattle Seattle thirty seven to thirty Dow cook left the game in the third quarter with an injured shoulder. He did not return he was also without his best receiver. And Adam Falen. This has been going around all morning. That kirk cousins is Owen. A on Monday night. Football keep in mind. Six of those losses with the Washington redskins in two. Were to the seahawks. The hawks in front of the twelve obviously like last night. While with Minnesota Max did cousins prove he is not ready for prime time. Of course look like Monday night. Football on Primetime ONATE is How about like comebacks in the fourth quarter? You know Kirk cousins got his first win. The Vikings been there almost two years when trailing in the fourth quarter last month. Look in this position. A Lotta Times seem like the bad guy right because you just got to tell the truth breath as you see it and sometimes people's feelings get hurt you know. I thought Burger set it off beautifully when he said he he presented all all the informed Kirk cousins and what people thought about him and then he said Okay America in other words we're about to find out and then when we found out I thought after the fact started making excuses for kirk cousins a little because not like he played off like terribly in the moment of truth he just wasn't good enough. Let's not walk it back now. Who was right the the first time? Here's the narrative I have. No one wants to say story anymore. He wants to say. Here's the story. Everybody Kirk cousins can't get it done when it matters matters most of America here we are. Did he get it done. Yes or no after the game post game analysis. I kept hearing Vikings. Vikings going to be a tough out. They'll be tough out. Were tough out. We mean tough out. Why aren't they super bowl favorite? You know why they're not super bowl favorite and we all agree. Vikings tough out. No one's picking them to win the Super Bowl but we all think they can win a playoff game. There'll be a tough out because they don't if they had just do. This thought Experiment Barrett for a second same vikings team take Russell Wilson just switch quarterbacks now Russell Wilson's on the Vikings are the Vikings considered a tough out or do you. I think they might win the Super Bowl. That's the difference if you put a great quarterback there or quarterback even that you just believe get it done under pressure. On the Vikings they would not be considered a tough out. There wouldn't be considered one of the if not the Super Super Bowl favorites. Let's not walk it back now. America here is Kenny. Get it done. The answer last night was for the eighth time on Monday night. Football no first of all. I'm being facetious somewhat when I'm saying this but if you didn't watch the game just say you didn't watched game and I'm not accusing you of not watching the game accusing your analysis of coming across as if you did it. Let me tell you why. Because he is my thing. When will you look at Kirk cousins? His one it's exception was when digs. Let the ball come right out of his hand. In the ultimately got intercepted by flowers he threw two touchdown passes that's snub earlier in the game is what I'm saying. We watched a vikings defense. Give up over two hundred yards rushing again. I know you watch the game. I'm just a few is your analysis of being the way you just ignore what you saw last night because you wanna make a point about kirk cousins and I think the most important argument is being made in favor of Kirk. Cousins was what Molly said to jump. Start this compensation. The first six Monday night law school. What's important for a person that you consider to be the worst owner and the entire that's whose name you won't even acknowledge national television? And I understand for good cause my point to you. Is that nobody. Nobody as has a horde the state of that franchise in the nation's capital. More than you so much so. I don't even think you like flying through Reagan national because you think you might be contaminated. Dan Did you sign up. Okay so sick. The first six Monday night losses for Kirk cousins was playing for the Washington redskins. What did we see last night? We we saw God. That was a fish. We saw a guy that reminded US accuse me he is complete nearly seventy percent of his passes. He does have twenty three touchdowns just interceptions. Oh by the way he put them in a position took compete in this game but they couldn't stop the run all evening long. They gave up a big time. Sixty yard touchdown pass. I think it was Russell Wilson to morph example. When you look hit the Minnesota Vikings I am not telling you that Kirk cousins is Russell Wilson? I'm not even telling you. He's Lamar Jackson certainly not arron Rogers or drew brees. What I think we're WHOA? I'm just all I'm saying to you is this. We look at the Vikings and we never ever ever anticipated that. A team coached by Zimmer. would be run over like that. They got ran ran over last night. When you Russell two hundred yards against the Minnesota Vikings excuse me? You're going to compromise what they're bringing to the table. I'm only talking about last night. I'm not talk about because remember. I've had my own questions about because I'm only talking about last night I am saying to you when you look at. What transpired last thing you the Minnesota? Vikings you cannot win that way. I did not look at the Minnesota. Vikings go like this Kirk. Cousins is not getting industrial. SORTA vikings the kirk cousins proved. He's not it's not prime defense offense with what the problem. What question was not did the defense let them down? The the question is not deep cousin cousins acquit himself. well as a competent quarterback. uh-huh we know kirk cousins can play the question with Kirk. Cousins is in the moment of truth. Can he ever get his heat on is he. Not Primetime do think it's fair to say that. Status misleading based on what Stephen said six times less Washington redskins two times playing in Seattle. The twelve one of the loudest stadiums that would be if it was just the fact that he had the worst record in history of Monday night football. That would not take into account the fact that he had his first. Come from behind. Hi I fourth quarter when trailing win as a member of the Vikings last month. He's been there almost two years. That would not take into account the empty calories stats. It's that. He has delivered throughout most of his career. But mainly what I object to is. I'm told the quarterback position. I'm the one thing it's overpaid. I was like no no. You gotta pay the quarterback and Kirk cousins got paid by the way when the drama is set up correctly. Why do you think Booker said okay? America what were we. What were we all all thinking? Let's not now say can kirk cousins. Get it done in the moment of truth when the answer is no let's not then walk back and be like but he didn't make the worst passes passes in that situation. Maybe we didn't like the play Cole. He'd been playing well. He did lead them back from a larger deficit in the fourth quarter. Let's admit what just happened the molly here. DALVAND fumbled plus. He hurt his shoulder. We saw the interception that was taken right out of the hands of Stefan. Dave okay. What I'm saying? They use a multi plural shortening plus. But what I'm saying to you is that you ultimately dig yourself a hole because again if they're running roughshod Over you that is not the day after is not the time to point to were kirk cousins. Did it do when you have a defense. That's playoff ready. Everybody's eyes is as they had an eight. And Three Record Zimmer after the game talking about excuse me this ain't the end of the world is just one game we look at a defense saying well. We're not accustomed to seeing that happen. I've been to the Minnesota Vikings. You do not run over them the way that they got ran over last night. And I'm saying my only did not get the day it's just point out what kirk cousins didn't do as my brother used to say that the the time to criticize the fat dude is not when he's coming back from the gym with a Sweaty wristbands. Then maybe you give them credit credit because he actually just went to the gym now that he's overweight but what if what if he had lost. I think that if he had lost fifteen pounds coming from the gym that not not no I understand it. You could say the same thing about James Harden in the playoffs last year hardened showed a lot of signs that he's turning around in terms of how he deals with the biggest moment yet you slow also still accused of close. He did because he did it. He dribbled out of bounds. He looked to jump under draymond Green Lake. They had winnable games they lost and if it had been bigger in the most important moment they they wouldn't have been bigger that's entirely different choking that's different than dribbling out of bounds and like looking for the call and missing the three. It's maker miss the eventually Ashley you gotTa make under the under the brightest lights and the point about kirk cousins. Have I seen if you guys are saying him. Have you seen signs. That kirk cousins can turn this around. Yeah it's not written in stone it's going to be that way forever but so for I've seen encouraging signs but once again there was the moment. Get it it done. And he couldn't couldn't get done and if he could. We would think about the vikings very different. You said that way. I'm looking at it. I'm looking at the defense. Ranked Eleventh Overall Fifteen fifteen against the rush twentieth against the past. That is not the Minnesota Vikings we were supposed to be looking at this year. They say enough to go with their no. No no no ooh No no no no no eleven events in the league's enough to win. Assume no not this not this. I love getting Outta Vikings team. That's eight and four has has four more winnable games. They're going to get their best receiver back in. They're gonNA have their running back back helping in the Super Bowl. The Vikings they could very well make it to the super bowl making very well making super. I'm not picking any team out of the NFC to make it to the Super Bowl. You GotTa pick one pack come the host of the show good point inflatable noodle man and his constant underrating entices people to look at me. Look at me. He's stylist and brainless a literal pad. Curiously however inflatable Buhlmann when hearing the GEICO not only saves people money also has an award winning and that makes it easy to manage. What policy he knows you should switch because yes talking to GEICO is a no brainer stocks can implausible noodle? Man Cassidy unpredictable disgusted did A Mad I'm angry and and I'm I'm probably more so mad at myself about our our discipline. Our consistency see the lack of that. That showed up in this football game. That's on that's on me. I felt like and I think most people felt like we were the better football team. They played harder than we did it. And that's why I said that I'm. I'm disappointed that they wanted this one a little bit more than we did. And and They made the plays and we didn't you. You just heard coach Peterson. That one hurt philly giving up thirty seven to the Miami Dolphins and a six point lost. The Eagles have now lost three straight dinner. Lobski here with us. Good to see you morning morning and we had a passionate discussion about this yesterday. WHO's to blame for the eagles struggles? Obviously underperforming Max do think Doug Peterson should be taking the blame for their woes. Should the Super Bowl winning coach. Who then the following year made the playoffs again and went and won road game in Chicago against the best defense in the league and then almost turned the trick against the saints? That New Orleans should that coach coach be taking the blame or should the quarterback who was not you know he had a great record. Two years ago I thought it was the best player in the League two years years ago when he got hurt but they won the super bowl wrong with different quarterback who also wants Super Bowl. MVP and then the following year. Let's not forget by the way just because sensed by the way I know this vis vis you like that Nick foles Latte. Do you think that people need help. And no I do not. Oh you're right they do say camera hammer molly so the point is that Super Bowl. MVP Nick foles the next season people forget Carson Wentz was six in seven. The Eagles were coming off a loss to Dallas going into a rams game and they were done. They had an under twenty percent chance to make the playoffs. They were finished last year. Then who came in Nick foles any pleased the whole team. It's not just the he plays. The team plays better thing. Make it to the playoffs. And then they went a playoff game in Chicago wasn't Carson Wentz now. Carson wentz is the quarterback this year and I pointed out on Sunday pivotal plays that I felt felt like he needed. It wasn't his fault on Sunday in the sense that he was the bad player. No other people were making mistakes. But that's when you got your franchise. A sending young star player player has to pick the team up not take negative plays on third down to score basically salt the game away. But that's twenty did no you. Don't blame the Super Bowl winning coach. Who went to the playoffs and won again last year both times without the quarterback when suddenly the big variable is this quarterback shows up the team's not playing and he's not picking them up? Of course Peterson doesn't deserve the blame. Well first of all. I'm offended by your argument for one reason. I don't appreciate the fact that you've made it very very appearing on national television that you don't do not offend agenda Jackson. She's one of my favorites. What have you done for me lately? I can't believe that you would just ignore that. Okay because as far as I'm concerned turn that really what comes into play. I don't give a damn dopey did two years ago. I respect them. I'm not advocating. He'd be fired. Not If that I mean the resume comes comes into play if you're talking about a super bowl champion just for a couple of years ago who also got the team to the playoffs last year. Subtly we want to forget all of that and say that he should be fired and that's ridiculous but to highlight what's going on right now in the moment. There's nothing wrong with that like I said you're not listening to Jason where you not the fan. I mean I mean come on. This is Janet Jackson we talking about it. What have you done for me lately? That does matter okay and the reality is is that this team has been suspect right for lots of the I. Don't blame him. I like molly. I liked him. But here's the deal just also has to deal seriously when you look okay. Doug Peterson I'm not pointing the finger at him per se but I did notice ninety one yards in penalties ten penalties for ninety one yards. That was a season high ten penalties ninety one yards. What's second most of the season? I'm looking stuff. Got Ahold and penalty. We got legal blocks got false starts we got to pass. Interference Calls Against Jalen military got missed field goals. All over the place you've been you've been savaged by injuries. We get all of that. I have said Howie Roseman. And I'm going to continue to say Howie Roseman the GM now. Please don't get me wrong. I'm not advocating. He'd be fired either if I how today shake his hand listen man do better next year. Everybody has a down moment downtown. I think this is what it is for the eagles. I think I think there's an absence of depth. I think that there's an absence of discipline because you do have guys that were feeling themselves. I actually think nick foles hurt them. In Nissen's he delivers livers you a super bowl championship. Then he comes back that last year after Wentz goes down again and he got you to the playoffs and a playoff victory against Chicago. You guys will feeling him you you were leaning on that guy who have to lock room. Wanted him the other half one it went etc CETERA. y'All were getting caught up all of that stuff instead of focusing on doing your the job. And if Peterson is accountable for anything it's him not locking in guys and making sure you're focused on doing your job instead of having comments and feelings feelings and emotions about a plethora things that you can't control so when I look at it from that perspective I'm thinking about your roster again absence of depth some Gaza older dirk okay. You've got the injuries going on. Those things may have affected Peterson. Peterson could have done a better job. But it was Rosa's job not to put him in that position to make make sure that he had some debt on that roster. Because when you've got guys that are fighting with each other for jobs guess what you don't have to worry about. You don't have to worry about their focus because they look in in the past did thinking about the here and now because they could wake up tomorrow and lose their job because somebody else's better ready to snap from them how he rose limited to do that. That's not the SIP that's Roseman. And that's who I'm looking at. Let me get district. You WanNa give credit to Doug Peterson for twenty seventeen in two thousand eighteen. But you don't want him to have had blamed for this year asking real question you isolated success but Nah variables one guy was there for the Super Bowl and the playoff wins the quarterback when he had this quarterback last year they weren't going anywhere and this year they're going well. You can't kill the quarterback you can't give him credit for the success but then when the failure comes at a lack of success comes be absolve him from blame. The NFL is an organisation. The most organizational based sport in professional sports is all about the organization. Football is the most team based sport in sport. Most coach everybody earns some blame here. But like you're goes back to Sunday. They hung thirty one. You you wouldn't ninety plus percent of the Games you win when you score more than thirty one points for Sunday wasn't about Carson and once. They have three games that they've lost this year. Let's look at the players needing to take some blame. They have three games. They've lost your droughts not because of Oh there was a third third down. They didn't convert in the first quarter three games at the end of Football Games that they've lost because of drops their coaching. Doug Peterson who is outstanding has has taken Carson Wentz who I've longed for being an explosive dynamic big play quarterback and asked him to play dink and don't football whether the personnel around that or not dictates it. The coaching staff bear some blame. Because they've handed coach Pan quarterback and then Stephen as point guests. The general manager has just a bear some blame because they put all their eggs into Sean Jackson's basket and that basket has been put in. It's a good question. Bears some blame short but the head coach hat. How some of it? That's not the question it's not. Should Peterson take some blame. It's does he take the blame. In other words. Everyone has some blame. Lean when you're winning. You get some credit when you're losing it's not in fact that's what you were doing. What I'm saying is really who deserves most of the blame who is the biggest biggest culprits quarterback? What's what I am saying? Is it's obviously the quarterback and and I know that you love Carson Wentz. I did too early early in the season. Without the Sean Jackson. You were not going to like. There was no one to take the lid off the defense. He was forcing things down the field. Like then I've seen his instincts are shot. They're totally shot. As I mentioned many times I've seen the pocket collapsing thinks it's going to hold the pockets. Holden thinks it's going to collapse. He bails he. There's no there's no we'll go to take the lid off. He tries to force field. Let me start. Let me play down the field and and and the part that. Let me do this Dan. The part that we're I I attack your argument Max. Is that sometimes if you're wrong I'll say you're wrong but what I'm seeing you is that in this particular case as in a lot out of cases you're not consistent with what you said about somebody earlier. Let me give you cost wits as an example when you're talking about costs and went we had we had a discussion. She gets when we were talking about how you said. His absence of leadership was the reason why guys were dropped a fast. This is what you said in the past which I said and I think that's ridiculous. They gotta catch the Dan Dan Ball they got a job to etc etc we pointed to an over simplification goes down no but but remember I specifically quoted you on that because remember. I remember weeks ago. I had stop stop. Are you saying that's why for the stake I said are you saying for us for the sake of define I don't mean that guys like I don't like Carson Wentz. I'm going to drop at this man. No you guys play harder for certain quarterbacks somewhat I'm saying to you is this so now we get to Carson Wentz you talk about you could see it's timing. His office is but you've also so pointed out in the past Max. How Doug Peterson coaches him differently? Though Peterson ask things of him that he did not ask Nick foles. So my point to you is that is zip possible that it's not about cost wins but it's about to coach and it's about what the coach is asking you to do. Because he knows that you're not nick foles you're not not as limited and as a result when you're on the field. He's asking you to do more than he would normally ask this. Why would you bring? Oh in this season he wanted to play more like nick foles. Excuse me this season. Yes he did. Yes we did it. That's why the George Jackson Right. But then Sean Jackson Got Kurt so at that point. Do you think Doug Peterson wants him. Forcing it down the field all the time. You just made the point earlier. But that doesn't mean that they want more nick foles. Their injuries have have dictated that they had to become more of a Ding Dong off. Right yes right. That's not want you to be. That's not the point. Stephen is making Dan. Dan Is simply that because Carson wentz is a more dynamic player capable of more things got more complicated for him. Doug Peterson simplified it for foles I would argue you this season things could have been simpler for Carson Wentz. If he would have allowed in Edinburgh from being paid he does. What what one point you had your to Max? That's one point which I agree with you. The other point is I don't understand how one breath you can give. Doug Peterson Credit Credit for simplifying. It for one person. Complicating it for another but then we get to nick. foles being gone and cost winces. And you're ignoring that tip. Get at cost and what. I don't understand. I don't believe that Doug Peterson is incapable as a coach of using Carson wentz properly. I've got that on Carson wentz. He's been in the league long enough now. I was arguing at a time when molly and others were saying Tom Brady should be the MVP no Carson Wentz should be winning. He was looking great and I know he was the guy to replace Aaron Rodgers right then I noticed then. Nick foles had an incredible incredible run in the playoffs but still of course Carson Wentz is your starter starter they were floundering with Carson Wentz. The following this is different. Carry say something to you. Dan can't say to you. I believe that you're holding. I believe that your feelings about Carson wentz completely changed when Joe Joe Sent Center liquidity. When Joe's report it came out dissecting in the locker room or oil alluding to in the locker room the difference between how Nick Foles was received? And how cost I think the real quick real quick. I would understand why you would say that. They didn't change. Then it corroborate explained. Explain some things to me. I was curious. Why does this team function so much better than we are playing worse with Nick foles? Mr Talk to horses for courses. I would never argue that full bench got I would argue. That falls is better quarterback went so that Chris is renowned rounded leader. They're six and six in Dallas so some of that last year you continue to point to like Nick foles they were six and seven with Carson. Wentz Nick foles came in. That was a bottom for defense events. It was a bottom for run game and it was a bottom for offensive line last year. When Carson Wentz was playing nick foles came they got healthy? It became a top five run game and the defense. The defense played a lot better. So it's not just like you you think it's strictly an individualized thing Max we're like learn back has yes you do because you're going. I think it's not what I think. That's what you're stating because we have to at a certain point isolate value. And when we say quarterbacks when I'm arguing here quarterbacks are overpaid overpaid. You don't have an iphone and I'm told that they're not overpaid okay. Then they're going to get a lot of credit they're going to take a lot of you have to isolate value. Tell me why you have of college. You like how do you understand what someone is worth or something is worth. If you can't isolate their value their impact right by far. And what was nick. foles impact on this team two seasons in a row when it mattered most while he was two seasons ago he was home field advantage because of the guy who got hurt what was his impact and won the Super Bowl. MVP VP. WHO had the number one fear Maxa making it more than eleven to one symbol of united? What we're going to go to the playoffs with Carson Wentz? They had last night about snacks. They were eleven and to witness folds before he went down he was your MVP MVP. He got her. I'm talking about 'cause there were eleven into would cost and went. Sure he goes down. He was your league. MVP at the time agree. What I'm saying to you is the only way your argument makes sense? If you're saying that what Nick foles did that year they won the Super Bowl they would not have done it with Colin. I know he was playing that they would have done it with Carson Wentz or not. That's not fair because he didn't get the chance to show it. I know they did do it with Nick. Foles I also know the team was flat with Carson Wentz. Yes there were injuries he'd been with Carson Wentz Europe with Nick Foles last year and I noticed there flat again with Carson uh-huh points they scored with Carson Wentz last year. And then with Nick foles go look at how many points they gave up. There's a fundamental. It's a team game and by the way I'm talking about out someone. I watched the eagles a lot. I see the reason this season when people are like some people are saying hey carson Wentz is playing almost like MVP levels if these guys weren't dropping passes and I started to really pay close attention. I thought I don't see what people are seeing. I see a guy whose instincts are shot. Frequently does the opposite of what he should be doing. I and I started thinking game after game after day. And I'm seeing the Philadelphia Eagles team that throws that has thrown a ball one hundred one times more than they've ran the ball this year. I'm seeing the Philadelphia Eagles team that has never prioritized a run even though they got guys average better than four yards a carry. I'm seeing a Philadelphia. Vehicles team led by coach. Doug Peterson who asked of course it went what he never asked of Nick. Foles and I'm seeing Nick foles having the requisite of weapons available to him because those guys were healthy whereas costing wins has not had the luxury of either being healthy yourself or having Goss healthy for him and yet he is asked go out there and consistently do more. I think it's a mistake. I don't think that you're wrong when you say that. There's been a little bit about it in this year but the point that I'm making is you you have to look at the personnel around. You have to look at what Peterson is asking him to do rowing. Give Him your instincts in pressure moments. It's told you to throw me the football and I consistently let you down. Would you continued to trust if I believed in you. Yes I thought you were good. You believe dropping the ball when you keep dropping the ball when when he throws you the ball on the other guy threw the ball. You kept catching the ball okay. Here's the here's the issue I have. Jared Goff has not been good this year. Jared Goff. We've seen play at a high. I level he took a team to the super bowl last year. He was one of the reasons he was in the running throughout two thirds of the season for. Mvp We kept saying three MVP candidates. Arid Donald. Todd Gurley Jared Goff this year. It hasn't been good. But we always looked at jared goff even with the armed talent like he needs to play action with todd. Gurley Dak Prescott leadership qualities doesn't turn the ball over but when you see both of them the reason you like Carson Wentz so much I assume is the same reason I do because when I see Carson Wentz I go no. That's not goff and that's not dak.. That is a differently abled quarterback. That's a guy like when you look at Patrick mahomes not pitched it home level but like guys just different talent therefore there are a lot of expectations and not only. Is He not meeting those but his team is under performing with argument. Here's why because as we just a few weeks removed. I think to if I remember correctly where we actually had a debate as to whether or not show McVeigh lost into the point that I'm trying to make to you is which one is it. The reality of the situation is even. We looked at golf and we haven't been impressed with him. They have been questions about. Show McVeigh because because what he was done to him in the Super Bowl by bill belichick. People who didn't ask people were asking the question as to whether or not he had been figured out the reason he's a while we were asking that question is because we've seen such ineffectiveness from Todd Gurley compared to what we've seen in the past we've seen such ineffectiveness from Jared Goff compared to what we have seen in the past and the combination of the two things we said what happened to the boy wonder ensure me. I'm not sure. McVeigh I love the Guy. But what I'm saying is Dole's questions with. They're just just a couple of weeks ago dead. Yes it can adjust and everything else. Let me ask you this or Dacca. Goff in Wenceslao talent category. No no no has wentz been paid like a franchise quarterback at a star right through way. More is in his prime right now Carson Wentz he should yeah more or less entering his physical prime. Sure so when you look at deck and off and went right now. WHO's the most disappointing? In fact Max Wentz doesn't Have Zeki. Piquionne Elliott our Amari Cooper the same line because they've been hurt. Your can't even compare that though based on who he has to work. I'm not asking Dak Doc. Also not being disappointing right now. They haven't been beaten equality team. I'm saying who is most. I expected more of because I thought I knew Oswald Quick Question Quick Quick Quick Sameday with Carson Wentz have done if Shaw Jackson having gotten her he'd have been. MVP Games a couple of days. We would have them in first place in the or tied for those three drops to buy. Aren't they pay to. Maybe eight four quarterbacks. Don't make people around them that much better. The people around them make quarterbacks better. That is the Tom Brady to or no. Okay good see here that. He's talking about a meaningless receive device. Today I like it. Let me just add. This wasn't talking about the coast. Got Two years right. The Eagles three straight losses have been by eight points or less and just let you know Carson wentz seventh total.

I mellow an apology. No I don't know mellow an apology. As a matter of fact Lala tweeted at me or about me. Anyway we have that we have the tweet tween. Someone said that I should apologize. He never really hates mellow. He's been rooting against them for years. He's counted him out a long time ago. Well she's right that I counted him out a long time ago had not been rooting against Melo for years. That's incorrect. Let's give her perhaps for defending man absolutely sure in fact but it also like she has a vested interest in this. Obviously I'm trying to be objective. I don't think you should be anyone would accuse her about being objective about Carmelo look identified. Carmelo was the best player in the country when people were talking about. TJ Ford at Texas and no one was picking Syracuse time. As the host of around the Horn I picked Syracuse to win the whole thing. I picked them because they had the best player. Carmelo Anthony I was. I was very happy that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony when everyone was saying. Hey when when Dantonio coach Lynn's is moving the ball. Jeremy Lin went Carmelo comes back. He's going to be a ball stopper. I said he turned out to be wrong. But I thought I'm Pro Carmelo Anthony. Then he got old when he wasn't as good and at the same time that he was getting older the League changed from under his feet making him a less relevant player and then he then his own ego didn't seem to catch up with that so it's it's not that she's absolutely right. I counted them out a long time ago and about that so funny very small sample. He's proved me wrong in the right situation in Portland never rooted against Carmelo for Carmelo always have first of all got offensive player of the week in in the the West Right. We have the graphic the offensive player. Graphic that okay. Here's is what these players did. This week did did Carmelo. Anthony deserve the offensive player of the week. No he did not it was an I. Don't WanNa take pity on in Carmelo. He deserves much more than our pity. That's ridiculous now. There's no reason to overstate what he's doing by. Comparing him to superior players like hardening dodge I will say this for Carmelo. Not only is he proving me wrong. In terms of the level. He's still capable of playing. At which is very high but guys is the most important thing he's doing. It in wins. Wins for a team. That was losing. They weren't winning as much. Then he shows up puts up big numbers. And they're winning Carmelo. Congratulations but I don't orman apology. He was cut by two teams one team after ten games because he couldn't play defense because he couldn't even threes. I am just saying Stephen. My opinion opinion is based on what I see and I tell you how it is the whole guys history like you all say blasphemy. I don't think there's such a thing thing. It doesn't matter what the guys track record was ten years ago. Peterson what have you done for me lately. Who Cares if Peterson won the super bowl a couple years ago? Well you're right about that in the narrow sense you have to judge people based on what they're doing now you might say. Hey based on their whole history I think Nick Saban's going to do much better going forward and I might say all the things are changing and we could legit debate that but there's no such thing as someone is there some sacred cow Carmelo Anthony and and you can't tell the truth if you don't think he's more than the ninth best player on most NBA teams. That's what I thought of him so far too small sample. He's proving me wrong. I think that first of all I think that your argument would be more profound of you. Didn't go to such lengths to explain yourself because let me come to your defense first of all. You don't hate people you ain't built that way you've never hated on Carmelo. Anthony La La. That's my girl you know. I love me some Lala. Now you're about that. Max Max says not hate Matt Max is not hate mellow. He's never hated on mellow period. So let's be very very clear about this. See how simple that was. I ain't got to go through two minutes now. This is very very simple. It is not you have to take to back you up. You have always ruled mellow. You stopped believing him correct. But you didn't tatum and you didn't root against them. So that's the point that's number one number two absolutely right. Mellow didn't deserve offensive player of the week. That would be James Harden when you dropped sixty three quarters eight quarters three quarters that would be using. Why well because I'm getting ready? Thanks for the memories getting ready to get to that because here it is Luke Adachi James hearted one of them should have been that play Western Conference player of the week. I would have gone with hearted personally myself because I think that he's just phenomenal. Even though Luke dodgers no joke mellow did not deserve it. But I'm incredibly happy for him because here here is where I will come to the defense of Mellow. I'd never stopped believing in them. What did I say I said mellow can give you fifteen to eighteen tonight? The average. He's averaging seventeen right now. He's averaged twenty two this week not to three victories will get Chicago. The other one was against okay. So let's not let's not get too OUGHTA hand about it but it goes back to what I told Y'all see here's the thing. Mellow is an incredibly good. Do Class personified. What does it widely respected to out? The League play. His played in this game. Got Nothing but mad love and respect for him and this notion Shen that somehow some way he would have had a negative impact on the team that hundred and fifty plus play deserve to be on a roster in the NBA ahead of. Tim was utterly ridiculous. Then you go to route of nine where people were looking at say Steven A.. If he can't make a top nine roster spot on the team we don't Wanna I put a coach in a position where we're looking at a hall of Famer and saying excuse me we're GonNa leave you on the bench we gonNa put you in as a charity case. We don't want that but I think it gets to the point. Which is where we have coming to you? Max because this analytic stuff is where. It's very very important. I'm not getting on you about it. I'm just wanted to say something. When Mellow got let go ten games into the season easy you notice probably better than me because you focus on that more than me analytics do judge stuff and ten game increments if you watch the decisions Che's that made on the NBA level? Decisions are made ten games into the season. Twenty Games season thirty games into the season. Forty Games in the season. It's not made in game fifteen. Eighteen seventeen twenty seven or thirty three. It's usually entail engage equipments. It was not an accident that darryl more mellow engage in when I spoke to mellow prior to his first game in Portland I sat up the end. I reminded him about something. I've been preaching him. His brother's wife every body audio attack immediately pass immediately because it gave the knock against mellow wasn't his game it wasn't whether or not he can make shoddy hand could he. Hugh would he sold under pressure. Anything like that. The knock against Mela was dead. He stalled in offense because he held onto the ball with his ball movement. Understand what's going on here. It's not that Melo is scoring. Because I know he can do that because I see people blocking shots. I believe he's going to make away about forty to forty four percent of his shots and he's GonNa take enough where he could average fifteen and night my issue mellow my number. One concern my only concern. Her was that Melo Carmelo. Anthony Are you going to hold the ball or you're going to tack immediately or passively what he has been doing in Portland. He's been attacking immediately or given it up because they weren't they weren't going to judge him by his numbers. They're going to judge Melo by whether or not he saw ashamed partner criticized and he's doing it on that level. You'd better not stop understand if you'RE LA LA and if you're somewhere listening I love the fact that she was at the game of Chicago she this port the husband the whole bit had the son of videos a beautiful thing. But here's the thing. The beautiful part about mellow mellow is showing. Everybody I'll do what that you ask. I'm not some kind of cancerous effect. Right what a team I think. He tried to show that in his last semester. Ice Thirty five with the ability to hit perimeter shots shots with as many scrubs has seen the NBA is a beautiful thing. That brother back starting playing being respectable enough where he's getting that kind of respect from his peers. Very listen. I'm having an travel. He's convenient. Not Washed looked Washington and got released in Houston from everything I understand is that as bad as reputation was defensively. When he showed up his defense was even worse they couldn't believe of it and they said this is just untenable? Now defense like offense. You can get better at that too. It doesn't always have to focus on that and put it in the time and you just play play. Well that can get better too. I'm not hating on Carmelo. He wasn't the offensive player of the week. He got the award good for him. Slept up to him. No I will say I slept on them. That's true I'm not. I don't front up but I I might sleep. You slept. But here's the bottom line when you and I had a debate couple years ago when I said Adrian Peterson can of Soup Frank Gore and you went nuts. I think over the last couple years Peterson would like to be a souped up Franco and the reason I bring that up is because the name. Adrian Peterson the rings bells for the history of the League from his prime. But at a certain point it's just a name and here's what he is or mellow was awhile showing more the thing that I would say is this and I'll close by saying this. I don't want to hear that from you. Because that was aging attrition and mellows case you were talking about his gay age bent on the ball. Here's what I know. Lalas writer die for her man and Lakisha was right or die for Tommy LAKISHA.

Jets' GM Joe Douglas Calls In To Answer Some Questions

"Joe good morning our you great. Good morning how are you guys doing. Yeah we're doing our joel. I'm sure a lot better than you. And nobody likes to fire friends and move on from people that you trust and help get you here in the first place. The spot jurat so. Let's start with the the process that you have to go through. In order to interview new candidates how how is that been laid out by the nfl and how do all the gm's across the league and owners across the league have to go through interviewing these perspective head coaches. Well process. started monday We we sent out permission slips interview requests teams Receive those back and we were in the process of scheduling these monday afternoon. you know Into yesterday so We we've we've been meeting and Yesterday or steve me monday. It was Monday and tuesday is like drinking from a fire. Hose a little bit with the tornado of information exit exit interviews with the players a meeting on perspective candidates so i feel good about our group of candidates. Feel good. Feel good about our process moving forward. How many candidates have you asked permission for. I won't get into specific number. I feel like we have a we have a pretty good group of Of people of leaders that wide ranging levels of experience and I'm i'm interest. I can't wait to get this process. Started and and really learn. Learn about different philosophies. Learn learn about these guys and you know. I'm excited to get this thing going. So is it all gonna be zoom interviews. You can't actually meet in per person a person pace i around. They're going to be all zoom microsoft teams meetings to start to start but at some point. You believe you'll be allowed to sit down with somebody that you're about to hire right. That's the plan. Okay very good now. The other big question that jet fans want to know the answer to is who is making this higher so from your mouth to the jet fans who was making this walton. The decisions going to be the owners The final decision is going to be the owner. I feel like it's my job and our president high meal. Hi it's our job to help support that and vet these candidates and get to know these candidates and really really give give a give the owner great group a qualified candidates to to talk to do you understand i. I don't. I don't know the answer this i i. Hopefully you do Is there going to be a new structure where you are going to be running the entire football operation where the coach is going to directly report to you or is he going to be on this fork where he also has the ear of the owner. Yeah i think that's going to be ownership's decision boom and for me that's that's not. That's not a big thing you know. I'm focused on the right person. The right leader for this team and you know how however it structured. I've i've been a part of teams that had a structured both ways where it's where it's Reporting to the head coach of the gm or head coaching and the gm reports the owner. So i've been around successful teams that that. Do it both ways. you said alternately. It's the owner's decision. we understand. you can't make a higher and the owner not knowing about it. But do you envision a scenario where you fall in love with a candidate and you say this is the guy i want as general manager and the owner shooting that down. I think that's a hypothetical situation You know i would say. I think we're all excited to talk to talk to these guys. I think were this is this is going to be a very collaborative effort. And i think we're gonna all come to the same conclusion at the end of the day. On who the right person is to lead this team. Did you hear christopher johnson's comments talking about how he's sick of losing and you know the type of coach that he would be looking for or that you guys would be looking for. I did and and i would agree with those sentiments. I think everyone in this building is tired of losing players included and it was great sitting down with these guys on monday. Tuesday and i really appreciate the players candor and you and their feedback on on what on what we need because as you know boomer the player the players know the players are so intuitive and so it was it was it was great great feedback productive productive meetings. And you know we. We need someone with high integrity. Leadership skills can manage. The entire team can can manage relationships in the locker room on the staff in the building So we're we're we can't wait to get started and talk to these guys and and find the right person yes. Your list of candidates are mainly coordinators. How many ex head coaches are on that list. I think we're going to we're going to have Like i said all different levels of experience. We're gonna we're gonna talk to. God that have been former head coaches ran. Talk to coordinators or we're gonna talk to a lot of of Different candidates and again. I'm i can't wait to get in get in these calls and You know d- energy is going to be. Hi i'm sure and get going and see what their process is going to be talking to jets general manager joe douglas on boomerang. Go on the fan. And cbs sports network as you start this new hiring process were you given any financial constraints by ownership that said. Hey we want to pay a guy but maybe not pay that much money not at all than that that has not been no restrictions. Okay very good now. what about what. He johnson johnson. And all of this. You know what. What is the ambassador. The uk You know i know Until his term in he's he's he's he's is in that role and i. I don't anticipate there being an issue. after his term ends are you expecting him to be involved once that term ends you know i think i think that's the christopher can go into that and i think There will be there is there is a plan in place But i again. I don't think there's going to be an issue. You have to wait until his term ends before he actually officially get re re-involved with the team So let's talk about sam darnold. I know some of your comments that came out yesterday. He's a great players. Got great future. It seems that many of the people that were on that conference call yesterday with you or zoom call. Yesterday are taking that as a very tacit support of your quarterback going forward. Is that the right understanding from your standpoint of the way that we are taking your words and then basically trying to say that you seem like you're not sure whether or not you want san back. Sam sans good player. We still believe in san. And we still believe that he has a bright future obviously. His play was impacted by injuries his own. His teammates align wide receivers I think if you talked to sam he would say that he could. He could certainly play better. I think at the end of the season toward in the last month. I think we saw really good play And you know we were able to be to to good teams so the the bottom line is that. There's not going to be a decision. That's made that that i'm gonna make without council with that just by myself Our our task at hand is finding the right leader. The right head coach. And we're going to have those discussions wants wants. This head. coach comes in. So is it fair for me to hear those comments and think to myself that you don't know right now whether or not sam darnold is on the roster next year right now we are. We're looking we're looking for a head coach and we're trying to find the right person we're going to get in. We're gonna once we once we hire that person we're gonna horsely. We have a lot of big decisions so make so basically. You're saying that you're not gonna tell these head coach interviewees that sam darnold the quarterback and you have to make it work with him. You're basically wanting to get their input on the situation before making any decisions at that high of a level about your starting quarterback is that fair saying that's correct okay. That's a good thing. Silver lining time at the silver linings that you can give jet fans coming out of this horrific year. Well silver linings. There's there's a lot of good people here. And i think there's a lot of good young young pieces to build around. I think if you look at our interior defensive line. I think we have a really good core group of guys led by winning williams fully fought kasey john franklin myers. I think if you if you look at the young. The young guys brought in last year there. There should be excitement on these guys. You know. I think we have a future future level tackle and mci really excited to have a healthy denzel. Men's for sixteen games next year. I think you saw some some young guys really step up and the back half of the year. It was good to get bryce hall off. The injured list. Had him starting to left corner for us. You know he's smart. He's tough he has great length and he and he's he prepares like a true pro so i think we. We have a lot of rookies that that did some good things last year. I think we have. We have a ton of draft capital moving forward over the next two years. We have nine picks This year in this year's draft quite a few in the top three rounds. We have a good amount of salary cap space. I think we're going to be reckless. When it comes to spending but we we will be aggressive with the right guys there. And so i think if for any coach that would be interested in this job with this with this market. This fan base. You know there. There's there's a lot of good things here so you had. Cj moseley opt out before the season started. I've been wondering whether for all the players that have opted out. Are you allowed to stay in contact with them. And do you expect him to be back on the team. Next year i do expect. Cj to be back. I have not had a conversation with him. I plan on having a conversation with him soon. But i do expect. Cj to be back and we certainly missed them this year. Talking josh dear. Yes last year now. Yes joe douglas. New york jets general manager on the fan and cbs. Sports network are when you're trying to find the next leader from the head coach standpoint of this organization do you factor in the history of the organization. I know you've only been here a couple of years but fans call us every day that have been here throughout at all and when they hear another coordinator roulette type of higher kind of makes them nuts. So do you factor in like back when added the rich. Kotite era came bill. Parcells does that factor into your mind. You know that doesn't factor into my mind. I'm like a like you said. Gee i've been here year and a half I try to. I try to lean back on on the experiences. I i've that. I've had over twenty one years fifteen with baltimore Three philadelphia and you try to you. Try to piece together. What what were the traits of a great head coach and a great leader. And i've been fortunate to to get a lot of advice and counsel from from mentors. Mind to help me through this process. I would say one of those One of those guys. That has got to be john harbaugh. I know that he's in the middle of the playoffs right now. I'm just wondering if you you called him and asked him about anybody in his life and whether or not they have any interest johar harv harvey great coach. He was exactly what we needed. When ozzy hired him. Two thousand eight and with the baltimore ravens. And you know he's a guy that had a strong personality extremely disciplined tough as nails. He he he could handle. He could handle the strong personalities of that team in both of those teams in baltimore and he he was the perfect hire but You know i i. I love coach. Arbs had a chance to spend many. You're sitting right next to him in the draft draft meeting room and you know great conversations and you know he never pulled any punches and you know i love charms kind of interesting i i just want to ask you a side question because you know you talked about philadelphia. Were down there for three years. And you saw a lot of success there and you saw what happened on sunday night with doug peterson going to nate. Sud feld for some reason. I wonder if you've ever been around a team. Where maybe a general manager you know goes up to a coach during the week. And i know you guys have meetings with each other and say look man. We want to protect this draft. Pick that we have now so we can't win this game. Have you ever been in a conversation or ever heard of a conversation. That went that way. I have not. I have not and you know i. I can't i didn't even watch the second half of that game. So i can't even you know and i'm not obviously i'm not in the building and i've got a lot of a lot of other things on my mind but You know i. I've not been part of a conversation like that. So i i can't. I can't imagine conversation like that. Taking place i mean You know there's there's there you have to have credibility with the players so that's always that's always on my mind you know When you're dealing with a position like the position i'm in. Yeah yeah. I mean especially with the head coach quarterback in a situation where the game is intense. And there's playoff hopes lying on this from all another fan base. All of this other stuff. I just you look you know the story. I know you didn't watch it but you know the story because it's been all over the place and you guys don't miss anything in the nfl just wondering. Do you think that a coach. In doug peterson situation loses any credibility with his players. Because to me. That's the most important thing that a coach brings to locker room. Yeah you know. I i can speak to my time. When with coach peterson and coach. Peterson had unbelievable credibility with the players. Being being a former quarterback in the national football league for so long the players love coach. You know so You know that's that's that's a big thing of the. That coach has and you know he. He's he's smart and he. He has great great relationships around the building with with everybody. So you know i again. I'm i'm not really familiar with the situation going on there. But you know i i have. The highest regard for coach peterson see. I'm not the general manager. Joe you are. But when i look at this situation and the jets i say i'd like a guy who had previous head coaching experience. That's something that i'd like. But i'm just thinking now you've got two great examples of guys who had a lot of success. Who didn't have that when they got the job and john. Harbaugh doug peterson. Now john roberts had an incredible run. Their doug peterson won a super bowl. Things aren't going great for right now but when you go into this search with this team at this time to those two names pop into your head thinking we don't really need head. Coaching previous head coaching spearing. Because look those two examples you build a profile on these guys no different than you would player a player and you know when you go back and you look at the the coaches that have had great success over the last twenty years. I mean there's different profiles right. There's you jail. You just mentioned Coach harbs and and and doug and Then you have guys like p carol you have guys like Coach ballot check that who had the former head coach experience somewhere else. Whether it was college pros. So i i don't think there's one size fits all when it comes to this this job. I think it's important to to obviously vet every candidate but then you get you get We're going to get on these zoom calls and then you're going to get in a room with somebody and and really really feel their presence and and their leadership ability and can they command the room. Can they command the team. You know so. I like i said before. I can't wait to get going to this process early. Learning and get around some of these guys talking to joe douglas on fan. What was the low point for you this year Certainly i would say anytime. There's zero in front of our record You know you don't you know we're we're in this we're in this profession to win games and that's the bottom line and so when you're not winning games It's it's a frustrating thing you know But at the same time you know even when we were at our lowest point though and thirteen these players in this locker room stuck together and these guys these guys hard work. Work ethic their their competitiveness. Every day in practice They never they never lay down. You know and that was. That was really impressive to watch Every day in practice every game you know some obviously some games are closer than others during the oh and thirteen stretch but these guys never back down. So i have. I have a lot of respect for the way that these players carried themselves throughout the year during a really really tough year with everything else going on. So there wasn't any part of you when the jets beat the that you said that's not exactly what we wanted. Because there was a franchise quarterback that people have talked about for three years being the number one overall. Pick that now slip through our fingers. Not one shred of joe. Douglas thought that way. I can honestly tell you that. There's not one person in the national football league that wants to go through an own sixteen season and have that that mark on their resume whether it's a player coach or staff members so There was a lot of joy in la when we won that game. Yeah i don't know why geo doesn't believe me when i tell them that. And i don't know why you always have to ask people like joe. Douglas reaffirmed that. Hey i'm not the only thing. I i know you do get it. Joe who won the leonard williams trade by the way still tvd. I guess you know we were able to to get a player that we're excited about They were able to get you know we have a. We have a fifth round pick in this year's draft but Wow leonard had an unbelievable year unbelievable year and You know i. I have a lot of respect for leonard. The person a lot of respect for leonard player and so I'm sure the giants are are very happy with With the way that that trae turned out You know they had a player that came in and and was able to get double digit sacks this year so We still have a little bit of meat on the bone in terms of that trade. That we We need to to get a really good player. Yeah you know it's interesting. Went back to look at the the day that that trade was made. And you know jet fans like i we want this trade giant fans like what is dave gettleman doing and now here we are and letter. Williams is Become really one of the better defensive lineman in football. I think you could say. And i know he was a good player for the jets. He just didn't do what he has done for the giants so he really had a great year this year. And i'm happy for leonard. And i have a lot of respect for dave guy. So when do you guys Really start in two valuating players in this upcoming draft. I'm sure you have your scouts out there during the season and it was a truncated season in many ways especially for guys like justin field to only played seven games but really the seven game was just off the charts against clemson When do you guys really start digging in and evaluating all these different players that are going to be available at number two. I would say may of twenty twenty right As soon as drivers over Our our group of college scouts. Really our group are hobart college and pro scouts. There's a lot of passion and a lotta lotta work ethic and these guys. These guys dived in Right after the jaffa we knew we knew it was gonna be. It could be a very odd year in football not knowing if there is going to be a season at all in college football so is a lot of work on excuse me on the two thousand nineteen eighteen seasons just there. There's a lot of deep dives on on all these top prospect so You know guys are of of Really been grinding on all these prospects really since may is a senior bowl taking place this year as far as i know. Senior bowl is all right. So you so you'll be able to get some of these guys in person then at least and it'd be good i you know again. I'm not sure districts. I'm sure if we do get a chance to sit in front of the player the it'll be socially distance. I'm not sure if there if it's going to be video only if you can talk to a player so I got to see how that's working out but there is gonna be a senior bowl down a mobile. I want to ask you about one specific player and the reason. I want to ask you about this. Not if you are interested in drafting him or anything else. But how are people going to be able to evaluate him since he hasn't really played and that's trae lance. That's just quarterback from north dakota state who everybody thinks is a top ten pick for whatever reason all the draft pundits and all that other stuff. I haven't even really seen them play. I know he's a dual threat quarterback and that seems to be the way a lot of teams are going now in the nfl because the college games transferring a little bit more to the nfl game. But how does somebody like you and your scouts really dig deep on a guy. That doesn't have that much tape out there. Yeah well. I north dakota state's obviously a tremendous programme and they've had a ton of success over the last ten fifteen years You know with with the guy with a guy. Like trey. And i think i lose to it earlier That that is a guy with with all the uncertainty that we had coming up that our guys have to go through and watch every single every single play from you know his freshman year up until his last game. So i know. I know in in His specific case. He's only played one game this year. And that'll be it and you won't see see him again until combine senior bowl so You know we're we're we're going to keep doing as much work as possible on him. How well do you know hall of fame. Head coach bill cowher. I've never had a chance to meet. Bilk our I obviously it was in baltimore for fifteen years and Those where some old-fashioned slobber knockers and he no-one respects him more than me i Obviously a hall of fame hall of fame coach Great leader and You know tr- tremendous football coach. Would you like his number boom. You want you want to talk more about him. I mean i issue. We can you know we can. We can get the get the background going now. Yeah yeah. I don't wanna get all the started. All over again by did gio took it to a whole 'nother level again just by this question. Is that someone that you would consider reaching out to. I think know we're we're keeping. We're keeping a lot of options open. look we i feel good about the the group the group of people that were going to be talking to So we're going to keep a lot of. I will say this gel. And i made the same offer to adam gates when i got the job here if he would like to sit down with bill cowher and just learn about bill cower the way he thought about things i would be more than happy to bring bill over to florin parkin. Bill was no bill was all in on it. And i never heard back so i look. You need to meet the guy someday. Not maybe not as your next head coach. But he has a wealth of information and he is an incredible incredible guy. I will say that and you guys used to hate each other. I know because. I used to hate him when i was in cincinnati and he was with pittsburgh and he's an easy gotta hate. When he's standing on the sideline so i get all that stuff but yeah he's He's an unbelievable resource. But maybe maybe one day you'll guys will get to meet. And i'll be more than happy to make that introduction but let me just take a one more step further with all these quarterbacks that are now coming out. I'm sure you're watching some of these games. Give me your impression of Just feels that you see the game against clemson and how he played. I thought that was a great performance. Obviously you know i was. I was really impressed with the offense and defensive. Line of ohio state they. They really took the game over and You know it It certainly it certainly was a was a outstanding performance by very good player in a high profile game. Yeah you know it's amazing. You just said what i thought you would say. It's always about the offense of the defensive line in your eyes. You guys worked harder sonoma lease but who cares for your the reason. That's the offensive lineman's prayer by the way but we The guys that have to stand behind those offensive lines are the guys that actually people pay to see. So i was just wondering i mean. Justin got took a shot to the ribs. I don't know if it was a rib. Or hip liner. That whole second. Half and that kid showed. I thought that moxie that competitive spirit because a lot of people doubted him because of that performance against northwestern and now he's on the field with trevor lawrence who everybody believes is going to be the number one overall pick i just thought his fight is competitive spirit and everything else really shine through in that game. Yeah you you know from your your years of experience and You have to be a tough guy to play that position in this league. And i've been i've been fortunate to be around a lot of tough guys. You know from from joe flacco to carson and end sam. Sam sam's one as tough as they come you know playing playing through his shoulder injury this year. never never backed down so that that has to be one of the prerequisites of the position in this league in my mind is you. You better be tough. Not only physically but also mentally. Psychologically how about the one question half you this question about dedication at that position and it seems like it's taken on a whole new level over the last five or six years and i hear you know joe judge over at the giants talking about how dedicated that daniel jones while i also see down in washington where wayne haskins wasn't dedicated enough. How important is that in the evaluation process when it comes down to selecting the right players for your locker room. Yeah i think. I think you hit the nail on the head. Boomer this is. This is the most competitive sport and and professional in all professional sports in my opinion so You better have guys that love love the game and are dedicated to their craft and are are willing to put in extra time especially at that position Because it's in my mind is the toughest position and all the pro sports play There's so much on your plate. You have to be a leader. You have to be coach on the field. You have to be a high level of physical your physical bill. He's had to be through the roof. I mean you have to have it all from physical from an intangible standpoint and so if you if you don't have dedication at that position i i don't think there's a lot of room for success while we appreciate your time joining. No you have a meaning that you gotta get to look. Man pressure is a privilege. This is a huge huge selection. On your part halfway the johnson. Family will allow you to do it on fettered and and i wish not about the best. It's it's not an easy job but then again it's a job that so many people would love to have. I appreciate it. God i appreciate the time looking forward to this process. All right take care man. We'll talk to you soon right. Okay all right here joe. Douglas jets general manager on the fan. And cbs sports network.

There and and the impetus of that whether it'll begin began the day after we lost the Siasi was really disappointing. Dasa and I have this. I have this list that I share. Coach Peterson Watson's in his office after season. And they're they're things three things there. Can he run? Is He healthy? Does he love to play. And I said that was going to be our offseason motto and Peterson said. I'm thinking the exact same way. I walk down the hall on Wafa Andy Fearson and he said that's exactly the way I'm thinking and for us. You know the off season marathon and I know a lot of attention gets laid on WHAT WE DO AGENCY IN A. We couldn't be more excited. You know I think. One of the more underrated things that we did today was traded third and fifth round. Pick for Owner and you know when we look dead everyone we picked today. We try to answer those questions Now when we went a little bit later in the draft maybe there were some questions on a couple of those guys but we felt like they were good enough football buyers that it worth the rest and When I look at our football team or look at the depth our football team which vision just let me know that our new deck charts was up a on our on our debt char and to look at it in Iran. Now it's exciting. We have a good football team. And we can't wait to get start. In Ruben nonnuclear. I guess this is for how he and Doug. Whoever wants to answer? How can you tell if guy loves to play the game in this sort of off season when everything's so limited? Darton hit it off and I think that we have a great scouting staff and when we put them on the road and an I'm on the road and he says to them. These are the criteria where I want to know because the scouts at the end of day. They know these guys. They know what they're made up and we want to understand. Do they love to play? Do they love the process? And so that's a big part of our scouting meetings and we handed off to the coaches and coach. Peterson Ruben. You know this is. This is the side of. I think football that the you know the public doesn't see our fans don't see obviously. The media doesn't see Echo exactly what how we just said are scouts in the. That's this out on the road. You know they they compile so much information on these guys so much background information than you know quite honestly with with this pandemic right now. It's it's it's made us. It's coaches you know. Be More involved from the standpoint of just picking up the phone in for Me Collin. Collin their head coaches calling their position coaches. You know in talking to whoever we can in that building to find out about these players in and you can get a sense. Obviously you know we. We see the skill set on tape and we understand that. Can the guy play football But talking to these people really gives us a better insight to the character of the person does he love football. Is he passionate about his or does he wanNA give better And that's how we do it neck. And then Paul Donald Andy you talk. Metric is for one second I just want to give India. I dislike the say the piggyback on. What coaching in. How he says you know we talked about it. It's having a line vision in. It comes from from coach to how aides myself to our scouts and it flows. It's about eagles. You know what they are looking for. People that are fundamentally different. Love Passion for football. It's non-negotiable they're carrying the character. They do the right thing. Persistently never relentless playing style. You can see on tape. The motor it burns hot. You know you see him. Fishing Place Terrorist mentality theirselves individuals. So I I think those baseline traits or will be tried to focus on at our players in in it just mirrors it what they do on the field on the tape how. They handled themselves off the field in their training and the preparation. And everything else that we talked about. Don Much Howie I know in the off season you talked a little bit about the position was like he got a few of them in the strath. Even on offense I mean you talk about the back. Seven defense beating on offense guys like rear and Jalen hurts. Always that kind of an emphasis for you in this draft to. Yeah we wanted to make sure we. We have an unbelievable coaching staff. And it's up by coach Peterson. And we're very lucky for us as front office. Guys have coaches like this and so you know when we give these guys these kind of athletes and give them the opportunity to design schemes to put them in the best possible position. We know they're gonNA be utilized and we look for guys that are incredible athletes in you know A. There's no doubt about it. You know when we went back and looked at our team over last year we wanted to get more explosive. We want to get faster and I told that to you guys after the season and we stuck to that I know a bunch. Are Scouts over the last couple of days as early today when we talked about it you know they kinda they kinda through that back in our face you know they said Hey. We'RE LOOKING TO GET FASTER. This guy's still on the war and You know we kind of went over the top to make sure that we had explosive. Athletes are play caller. And we're real excited. What we did over the last couple of days. I'm on the MIC. Yes for Doug Doug yesterday how? He said that it's difficult to win. Plan Station to station football on offense which is kind of what you guys had to do. Last year When you look obviously it's difficult to ascertain what kind of contribution you're GonNa get from these wide receivers that you drafted because of the uncertainty over. How much prep time? You'RE GONNA get with him in the next several months. But when you look at this group that you've added when you look at the edition of Goodwin Has It changed the has it? Has It changed the look of this offense with the speed. It's giving you Yeah it has changed the look of the offense Number one but I I do think in you bring up a good point you know with the with the Limited off season that we're GONNA have in in if it's all virtual a no no on the grass time and we only get to training camp time. I mean this is GonNa be I feel personally this is going to be. We're going to lean on our veteran players. We're GONNA have to lean on the shot Jackson and Greg Ward. Who Know has come into his own has been playing well our team for a couple years guys like data now mark. He's good when a veteran player. Who understands the game until we can get these young guys caught up? I think the the dynamic of the offense I think You know the what we've done as a staff in the off season With Art Scheme Evaluation. Making things better. The staff hires that. I've that I've done this spring to bring in new thoughts new ideas in ways to enhance our offense. I think it's GonNa look a little bit different than and then of course adding the speed element to To that obviously factors in and and look I mean we play. We play a ton of teams that that that this past couple of seasons. Where just you know it was. It was hard to to push the ball down the field in in whether it was injury or whatever it was this just allows us to. I think. Open some things up you know. We have to do a great job as coaches however two players to have them detail and ready to go but you know it a veteran Li I think moving forward does buy time for Players to catch up. Go ahead Mike. Annan's Ackerman Andy I wanted to ask you. What did you like about Coban Wallace? Outside of the numbers testing. How you know. Think of Wallace's is is take in with suck hours. His physicality is tackling is ability. Play round the line of scrimmage the mentality played with the Motari. Play with. This guy likes contact. You Know He. He gets the ball he asked people. The ball gets there. He strikes and we saw that it was consistent. The motor that mentality played with and We really enjoyed it. Thought fit what we're doing in our putting together here Zach and then Less phone yes. This one's for how he I know you always talk about. How the roster building doesn't it now but you've really past the two big inflection points now. How do you think you are on offense relative what you wanted to achieve going into the off season and in particular at wide receiver? Yeah I think we're different back I really do you know I think that when we ended the season you know lost so seahawks at home. Disappointing for all of us and We had a really a priority to get asset and last year we lost in the first round the year before that will lost in the second round than our goal is to win another championship for the city. Philadelphia and we knew we need to get better that position you know. I know I've talked about in the off season but We feel like we bad that Shamba. We've added Al Sham back. We need to get him health. You need to get him right. And then when you look at this draft and draft weekend and adding marquees anymore the fast men in the world and I me that I said he's one of the fastest men in the world. He is so fast and you know obviously rich at the opportunity to be with them and so he recommended him to any I and then again. We're going to the draft when we got some young players really wrong but it can also play the game. They understand how to run routes. They're not just track. Is there guys that we really felt Ashen about? You know I know when we drafted hightower. We had a lot of conversation about higher towers. Walk Ins and then when we came back move back victim a bunch of eggs and we opportunity to get walk INS to and we sat there and we said let's get both of these dots. You know these guys that we've feel passionately about in Let's Adams's email. I'm less competition. Dictate competition dictate. What's best for our football team in? So you know I feel like a just with injuries and then adding to that situation or significantly better than war. I'll talk about the offensive line. You know we started off lyman last year. In or playing games without Brandon Brooks Lane Johnson. A best offense lineman emily those to the players in Getting those guys back and healthy in obviously arson in Plan Y. Off Aiming arsons a difference. Batteries are what order back so it all as we sit here we feel much better but you mentioned it's act you know. We've hit two election points in terms of free agency in the draft or not done yet you know. That's that's coaches lines August. That's how feel to work. The roster were intended to look at Asian market of role in anyone also cracks after the draft. And we're whatever it takes to the best possible team together on the field playing football lesson than Bo. Hey how he a year three things that were on your sheet of paper after the seahawks. Lush mentioned the Speed and and health. Obviously those were huge problems last season which you also mentioned. Does he loved to play? Did you feel like that was an area where you were lacking last year or something that needed to be addressed? No I think that's a core value that we have less. You know when we talk about guys WanNa bring on our football team that that that that can't go without anything else. We're talking about with the trade. Said they have an andy talks about an eagles mentality and so for me. That's what Describes News Eagles mentality Annan WanNa get guys who could just run or were healthy but didn't have the right mentality. I mean we have an unbelievable fan base the best fans in the world and so for us. They understand when guys guys care about a off end. We didn't WANNA leave that out. You know so for me. I want to get guys who can run or more healthy but didn't love to play and coach doesn't want to get those guys. Andy does want to get those guys in so it was just art of what we believe is important our own plan. Hey Howie on the on the wide receivers I'm curious you know. We heard so much. About how great this classic wide receivers was. I'm curious if entering the offseason. You made the decision that this was where you're going to add talent and vision as opposed to going after anything and Free Agency. Yeah did you know? We didn't want to shut off to the possibilities of adding talent in the trademark of the free agent market and we looked at those guys. Emily fired about those guys and try to balance. Those guys are what the draft was. We knew it was an incredible opportunity to add pieces in the draft. And we knew that our quarterback was young and that he will grow with these guys and also wrote with the veterans that we have here and so when we looked at the opportunities and we looked at some of the positions that we added in free agency an increase in the debt. The AT THE CORNER POSITION. The safety position in particular bringing back nasal failed. We thought those were the best opportunities that may be worn as equal in the draft. Cause we always try bounce phrase in the draft and I think one of the things that we look at this draft is. We had a dairy slack. You know that's artists drafts. And you know this is a pro owner and I don't want him to get lost in the slow here of everything that we've done in the off season this is a guy can get the ball back for offense put back in the hands of Garson coach after all place is the difference maker and I think when our fancy this guy in yields green arrogant tremendously excited that we have him on our football team definition. John Bone Doug. You mentioned Yesterday about the talk about John Hurts. Acquisition Lamar Jackson. And I'm wondering Martin was there in two thousand eighteen. Did you guys lean on him? A little bit for suggestions of air in certainly in the thinking was the ravens in how they approach that heck and also how they utilized him in. That first season is that a fair com Yeah Jeff. It is a fair COP You know morty obviously was a part of that team that that brought in the more Jackson and obviously he did the evaluation process and And then you fast forward to where we are today and I I bring Mardi onboard and ask him to look and how he and Andy and his staff they asked. They asked all our coaches to look at players mark with his expertise in order. Bax just a look at all these guys and You know he he. He felt very similar in in Jalen as he didn't Lamar now. I think I think totally I've only been around. You know two two types of quarterbacks I think with that type with Lamar Jackson Michael. Vick skill set those are the two guys that I've seen that. Have dynamic athletic ability you know but but having Martin Look Jalen and his skill set of what he can do and And then how? They put plans together How they designed an offense around you know putting Lamar in his rookie season allowing him to play a certain certain place it. It's all part of the process in in in for US moving forward. You know clear. The JALEN is a quarterback in as a quarterback I and and that's how we're going to develop him and then obviously utilize. His his strength is is a runner. In maybe maybe some other some other things you know as we as we go throughout this spring but yeah Martin was a big A big help in this process along with press along with rich as we evaluated this entire class for US BASEBALL. Truly it is awful. I'm phillies writer. Justin clue join me every week. Along with John Stolnis Liz Rozier and Dr Trevor Drunk as we discuss all the ways the phillies of hurt us on our podcast hidden season as well as historical anecdotes and emotional ramblings on our other shows continued success and the dirty inning subscribed to the good fight and you'll get conversations with insiders analysis of breaking news and stats stats stats together. We'll survive whatever baseball can throw at us. This is as a client host of the show. Podcast in twenty is what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me we're living in his nightmare now so I had him back on the show to ask him. What has he learned. What do all of us need to learn? How far are we from a vaccine? And what does he hope for society on the other side of this crisis but do we need to do to build something better in its aftermath. Enlisted our whole conversation but subscribing to our client show. Wherever you get your podcasts John and then Tim McManus this is Freddie and maybe Halley and Doug you can chime in after but the challenging circumstances obviously of the situation in. You've been a big part of this process but first year in charge of the department and running today today now that you look back on the draft and how everything went how do you think how do you think it worked for you. Well time will tell that in the one thing I know is is the effort that we got from our scouts from support staff from our office gals at across the board collectedly from everyone that contributed this dust. Standing there was tremendous effort in research tremendous effort and talking to players and prospects just aren't as much information a given set of circumstances. We have so very proud We've got a great group scouts and a Great Group of support staff in Gregory Football Operations People Standing coaching staff. And we work together. And you see the chemistry that that really transpired and Kim together over the last month and a half. It was amazing to be a part of it in to watch everything progress in the last three days in watch how execute the planner we had. It was it was great to be part of it in a very pro. Go Tim and then Martin Frank. This is for anybody that has a good story. Any what's the funny or memorable moment from virtual draft Moment in hand off to these guys is just trying to switch through Microsoft teams and and try to King. Clued everyone at every moment. You know. We're we're trying to make it less than let's be honest. You know we've baked. Jalen trying to include everyone and Katie David. Who is my right hand person? In the BOB rations after announce jalen hurts and I didn't get much response. And she said nobody could hear what you said. You cut out a Microsoft word so you know for me just A. It's humbling because we're so used to the connection and you know I N dimension. We have such a great sports halfway such great people in going through this last three days and not having connection with those people not being able to be around all those people and then trying to tell them what we're doing and not being connect with them was kind of a funny but You know we got together after the draft. That and Jeffrey made it amazing speech talking about everyone in the organization and coach Peter Samedan. May's speech and I think all of us just realized we're we're in an incredibly difficult time in our world and we feel incredibly fortunate that we were able to work during this time is. There's so many people are able to be able to do that. And we're thinking about all the thing for me You know looking back over this process obviously the NFL put a lot of effort into this virtual draft and our it department in in our people behind the scenes did a great job of keeping US online keeping US connected You know in his how he mentioned through our through our Microsoft teams. You know website whether it was on ourself older on our Microsoft surfaces just being able to bounce back and forth between the different chat rooms that we had open throughout the course of the day. And you know for me I think more of the one of the. It's probably not a funny moment but it's just a a relaxing moment is just being able to see everybody in their home environment. You know you see how it myself. Andy were wearing collared. Shirts were dressed up at some of our staff or just just relax there there enjoying the time their joy any other kids who are in the shots their their dogs or cats in the shots and it just makes it makes it a family environment for me that was probably the most enjoyable thing coming out of this draft and you saw actually on. Tv You know with the with the draft picks and their families so that was kind of reminiscent of the Philadelphia Eagles. In how we went about how we approach this draft. I would say that what goes said to is. Just this is pride. The draft will always remember will do other two families we did with our eagles families connected virtually. Did here at our house. You know with with their wives and our children and they got the share into you know set us we have right now. What we're doing with the conference call. It's something that I think. Royal always look back on and remember we did this in a different service Set a circumstance challenge or able to do with both of our families are Eagles Family Inter fancier homes. Sorry I can't get too many more but we got. We got time for two more some Martin in than Ed Crafts This this questions for Halley. Doug on when you talked about your vision of Kinda like adding the speed receivers. Adding Jalen hurts. I mean you you guys got obviously took a lot of flack from fans about the hearts pick and everything but like do you see him as part of that vision of just you know the speed throwing the writing on when he's on the field being able to kind of take offense to to a different place. I mean along with obviously the other guys as well as Carson everything you know I look at it I look at it as as as we had an opportunity to And how how does this yesterday? We made this really you know even when I when I was hired back in in two thousand sixteen. We're always GONNA make a point of emphasis to look at the quarterback position and try. Try the best. We can draft quarterbacks in and develop quarterbacks I think that's just you know it's smart in doing that and and it just it protects That position You know I've always said to you. Is that you know we were trying to develop you know depth in competition in always told you guys The quarterback position is never immune to that in. And I've been a part of that personally in my career in obviously as a as an opposition coach announce a head coach. And you know when you have somebody like jalen hurts. It's right there on your board. Yeah we understand. That might not be the sexy pick. That might not be the the glamorous pick but but when we look at it as an organization as a team we're doing the best thing in the best interest of the Philadelphia Eagles and and we gotta take advantage of that and so you know having a player of his caliber along with all the draft picks that You know we made all the picks that that are that are on our roster. The undrafted guys that Hopefully the chance to meet those guys here the next next coming days. You know that. That's all part of it and and so when we could add that the F. We can add competition where we can add value to any and every position on our roster. We're GONNA do that. Go ahead Howie. You're really wheeling and dealing. They're kind in a four fifth round to to get draft picks Richard Goal going into recoup the two that you send away for Darius and down one of those Dallas you know. How difficult is that to make a decision to trade within the division? And then if I could andy if you could just give me your evaluations on Prince tag on a guy who Casey. To Hill thank you. Yeah I think when we traded the three in the five for sleigh. I WANNA go back to free agency a little bit. You bring up a good point you know. I think there's been a lot of conversation Brett's been talking to me about about. Maybe the opportunity tab a free agent versus Darius A and we try to balance what that free agent will get an and that assumes the free agent doesn't want to leave yet ABC's averse this pro bowl corner that we got and the money that we save and also the PECs until we really wanted to have double digit x in this draft eight. It was important to us. We picked ten picks in the last two years in I know we didn't come out of yesterday with that. And so we felt like there will be an opportunity to move back and get a bunch ex and You know on the cowboys call on. They offer trade. I'll be honest. It's hard for me. That's hard for me. It's hard for me in the NFC to make a trade with our competitors and so it had to be something that we felt was really good for a football team and the reality of it is that we would take that pack in it. Who's one forty six. Maybe was the same guy that we were looking at when we're bidding at frowns. We picked up an additional act and we kept moving and we had an opportunity to add a lot of good players to our team and I started this by talking. About how proud. I am of this process and really how part of a I was of today and Now we had a lot of employers short team a lot of players that we wanted to add and we needed to have an opportunity to get some value. And now do you think of I am in. Terms of draft picks would temp X. But we also feel like we really did an unbelievable job here after the draft with our coaches with our scouts. J. With Bryce evaline with eighty with all these people who were involved in the undrafted processing getting those guys and so Obviously we're we're not done. We have other opportunities to look at as we sit here today again the weekend just the people that were with and think about the players you asked about. He was a left tackle. That we really liked His quickness ability to run off the ball hanker the past game and we let the competitive competitiveness he played with in. He's guiding. Let up one sack this year. really efficient pass protection in. We think he fits our profile offensive line. That can ron get out space in Aspen. Tax In anchor when when called upon to protect the quarterback so We saw an opportunity with him in credit. The however for jumping on it and everybody wants to end their you know pretty consistent grades across the board on so it was a great job of the scouts identifying him in how he executing attack. Casey to to hill. He's a guy. He is a high motor defensive. End and thing himself is is effort on tape is ability to pass road to win. Get home in the run game. Pursuit of the ball in his effort to high motor guy. Played with the wiring and Eagle mentality in He's a great kid to end He's someone that were proud of. Were excited to bring in here in for everybody to get to know in Washington. Hey there podcast Powell's I'm John Stolnis the host of the Phillies pod hitting season.

The Eagles are at the podium we haven't here. Thanks to the fine folks at SP nation and Khalid ingred nation. I'm your host Michael Kissed, and today you're going to hear from Doug Peterson and Jim swartz talking with the media. Before we get an important note, there's a new series we're doing here at bgn called quick jam and it's a show that will. Drop in the morning, not every morning but pretty frequently, and it's exactly what it sounds like. It's a shorter show to get you caught up in all of the updates with the eagles big news in small portions I'm going to try to keep these shows under ten minutes and jam packed them with as much info as I can that way if you don't. Have time for a full thirty to forty minute training camp recap right. At that moment, you can still keep up to date with what's going on in the world of Philadelphia. So make sure you check out episode one that dropped this morning and episode to will be up first thing in the am you'll still be getting fairly regular updates from bill g May. He forever rain and Jimmy Kamsky along with your normal life up of shows. So make sure that you tune into those but without out of the way, let's get to the pressures first up will get you caught up with Doug Peterson talking with the media on Monday than after the break we've got defensive coordinator, Jim Schwartz fielding questions as he was at the podium. An. Update on at Han Jeffrey, and what are your expectations for him as you in training camp and then into the season yeah we'll foggy morning in it'll be it'll be good to see guys on the on the field later to later this morning. So looking forward to that maybe Now Sean is doing extremely well obviously, there's you know there's no timetable for for for him. We're just trying to make sure that he's one hundred percent before we return him to action but he's done extremely well. And he's progressing nicely where we want him to be at this particular time in and he continues to progress in the right direction. At a Martin and then Jimmy Kamsky a dog. I was wondering. What are you kinda looking for out of? Like now today in this week I know it's kind of you know you got like. SEASON, starts. And also is everyone going to be practicing today. Yeah. So I think it was a little. The question was a little broken up I. Think you're you're asking about the young players, the rookies and and how how you know the practices and things that nature. So yet today's the first day in pads, and again, these guys haven't been Bending Pad since our playoff game back in January so You know we wanna do our due diligence. I WANNA do my due diligence to the players make sure that we're ramping up correctly and yet still. So put the pads on used to them here in the next couple of days and in really again it it's You know there's a fine line with the amount of reps that are starters taken get. Compared to some of these that are there backup guys or situational role player for us that we we need to get evaluations on and You know we we don't have a whole lot of time. So we gotta make the most of these opportunities especially, these these padded sessions that we have the next couple of weeks, Grad Jimmy and then David. Garrow. You have two bags of miles and Boston. Particularly effective as as receivers out of the Backfield last year, are you looking to expand the role in the passing game this year by lining them up in the slot nathen sort of run Wardha receiver outer. Yeah I do believe that you know miles has has the ability to do that. He's he's You know somebody that we've. said. Hey. You. Know Your your your guy going into this excuse me into the season. definitely want to increase. You know what he can do for us and if that means using them out of the backfield a bit more in empty situations, we definitely want to do that and then see where see where he can grow and get better and help us I i. do think that skill set is is conducive not to him but you know obviously match ups. And things of that nature from a defensive standpoint. Boston. Is the same way. Boston. As you saw towards the end of the season, he now became kind of our our jet sweep guy. He became a guy that we use he and miles both actually out of the backfield together. So it's a good combination of guys there with those two and really look forward to. These next few weeks just getting these guys. Ready for Washington, and Dave Ball damage. And Doug. In recent years, you have really managed Jason Peters Workload during training camp what's the plan? This year is he switches positions can he handle every rep in practice? While again, you know Jason being where he is. You know in his career in you know obviously the age thing you we still gonNA manage him. You know we're still gonNA take care of these guys and we listen we can't. We can't just give you know our starters one hundred percent of the routes. It's just you know it's it's unfathomable to do that, and so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA we have a plan now for these guys Jason's part of that plan and We're GONNA make sure that you know he's ready to go obviously in a couple of weeks but at the same time he he understands to from us that. You know he's got to get the Reps. To to be comfortable, you know going into going into Washington, all and intimate. Yet, DEB got with respect to rep distribution given uncertainty of the code thing you don't know how deep you're going to have to end up going this season depending on what happens does that make it more important to more evenly distribute the reps during these next three weeks particularly quarterback well I think you know right now The the plan, the protocols that the NFL PA the NFL put in place here for us. Novacare. I've been extremely a please in excited with the with with where we are as a team in relation to to the covert virus in the players being able to protect themselves so. I, think we as we move forward you know Carson in some of the number two guys you know nate sub failed you know are are going to have to take the bulk of the bulk of the wraps but I know as we get closer towards the regular season, we gotta make some decisions obviously and Will make him at that at that time. But but now that we're in this sort of protective bubble here. We can really prepare our starters You know in these next couple of weeks and get them ready to go Timonen. Jecklin. Good Morning. What are your early? Carson anything jump out to you about about him uh safari in camp. Early Impressions on Karsan. Yes. Okay. Yeah. Sorry. We broke up. I've been I've been thoroughly impressed. He he he has come in into camp obviously in great shape he's he's He's the leader of our Football Team Obviously coaching young players, which is great to see. He's working well with with Sean and and Greg Ward in the guys that were on the field jj round the field at the end of the season last year and getting a really good rapport with them. And and really taken ownership in you know. This pandemic were where we are as a football team in been really excited where he is right now as of our you know our football team and excited for this upcoming season with him definition then bow. Doug. This is our first time saints team. You've obviously had an opportunity especially over the last five days short gels. who were some of the young players rookies or second year guys or some of the new guys you I had this off season in terms of free agency that have really kind of caught your eye when you see them either on the field or watching them back on film. Yeah. You know it's obviously there's A lot of new new faces to the roster this year and You know obviously, you know you think about the free agency some the new guys there you know with. A Nicole Roby Coleman coming in and helping US obviously sleigh. We know what he is. You know we can. We can go right down right down the list real parks you know Hargrave guys like that. But you know when you get to that next level guys, I've been really impressed with in our linebacking a group you know even even TJ. Edwards. Guy Who had we had last year who came in a place game for us and and Duke Riley who had last year the Eliezer special teams players, but they're. They're now situational in the mix to play a lot on on defense and and been real impressed with those guys and I. Think about how Jalen Mills instances is transitioning to to that safety spot in how how well he's embraced that that opportunity in I think about Sidney Jones young players that we've had roster now that it is time is time for these guys to really make their mark on on their careers in the national football league. As I've been I've been excited about them offensively you know obviously Mile Sanders we talked a lot about him in Boston and and been excited about those two guys obviously are tight end situation. With with Dallas Zach and you know even even Perk, they're coming ads as some really good death. Nella has been a bright edition there and of course. Kayla Wilson now stars really good competition there a tight end and. You'll get the receivers You know obviously takeout takeout to Sean Sean Great Ward. As we know, we talked a lot about him jj we've talked a lot about him but excited were these guys are right now at this time of camp Really those young players, Jalen Rieger his in his has really been impressive out on the football field. It'll be it'll be interesting now as we get into pads just to see. The physicality. Now, the of all these guys you know as as we continue to to pursue towards the hardly. Make Art make our move here the next couple of weeks towards the regular season. Yet time for a couple more. So we'll go to bow and then Jamie and then neck what are your expectations for week one relative to what they would be in a in a normal year and if they are downgraded at all, what does that mean for sort of like how important the offseason stuff is? Well, obviously, you know with the With with with the pandemic and where we are in preseason with no preseason games, I mean obviously, the first thing that stands out is the you know the first game is a is a real game is a game that matters a game that counts, and so you know one of the things we have to do is a staff and and not only just coaching staff but a personnel staff is make sure we have the right. The right guys you know going down to Washington for week one and and you always WanNa be you want to be competitive? You know It's it's. Without, having games to really evaluate and critique you know mistakes get magnified obviously in regular season game. So we've got to do our best to to eliminate those here. The next couple of weeks with practices. Again, it's my job to put our team in situations to a stand that out on the practice field so that we can minimize those those issues when when we get ready for Washington That along those same lines. What are you most interested in seeing today from the guy, putting ads on for the first time given how behind technically you are given haven't been on the field and so long. Intellectually kind of banging. Yeah. You know it's it's crazy because you know just a few days ago would have been our first preseason game right last Thursday so. We'd have been. We'd been patch for two weeks leading up to that to that game and you know for me it's about getting the guys out there in pads running around you know again, first time that we're going to have. It's not live contact, but it's it's contact needless to say since since that playoff game and I, just WanNa see the guys move around they gotta get used to the equipment again the practice is a little bit lighter today. But at the same time we're GONNA we're, GonNa, we're GONNA fly around. We're going to work on some of these situations that I've been I've been talking about and and really kind of get a feel for for where we are as we begin to ramp up and really get into the sort of the meat and potatoes of our our schedule here in the next couple of weeks. and. I want to follow up on last week you were talking about the limiting the live sessions to maybe two or so you know like you usually do. But without the preseason games, how much tougher does that make it to to evaluate some of the rookies I have on offense like your rookie running backs, wide receivers in terms of all security I mean that's I. think that's An issue that every team is gonNA face, but you know you know that's one of the things that we have to our individual periods each and every day we stress ball security a lot You know even you know I think about and some of the things he does with his running backs in the ball security drills taken all our all our skill position players through. Ball security circuits in tackling circuits, and you know where we can. We can sort of replicate in game in game situations so that ball security you know we can. We can minimize you know and sort of eliminate eliminate. The turnovers and I I do believe that the teams that take care of the football obviously have a greater chance of winning games and and That's the big emphasis to us. Now, especially in these padded portions of practice. Thanks George, thanks, everybody these guys to. Support. For this podcast comes from state farm here with good news and even better news.

When Jim We'll get started with all down legend John, mcmullen Ed Jim Good morning guys any. Last time. We spoke you talked about your linebacker group as a whole. I want to ask specifically about the three rookies you have in that group other progressing particularly debut on. It's early. I. Realized that. But do you see him being able to make enough progress to contribute more more than just on special teams for you this year? While that's yet to be seen I will say this that linebacker and safety are two of the most difficult positions for guys to get up to speed with. That's including having a full off-season program for rookies ot as many camp and a full for preseason Ga- preseason schedule and and preseason games So their learning has to be accelerated Both of those guys are all three of those guys are smart guys and adapted well. Now, it's just a matter of accumulating as many reps as we can get and when we do have those heavy contact practices. Those are going to be a really important in our evaluations There's no grading on the curve for this can't be well, it's week seven a guy asked to play or it's week to a guy has to play or you know week sixteen and a guy has to play and you know, sorry, he didn't have any training camp so we can't expect much of them are jobs to get those guys ready and and we we have confidence in those guys. Those guys are working hard and they're really good athletes and feel good about their prospects don and then Jimmy. Hey jammed good morning wanted to get your thoughts a little bit on Darius like Carson was talking about him yesterday and he mentioned he was different and what what are you looking at imposing quarterback is Kinda. Looking at a corner saying he's different and I realize he's there what? Are Some of the traits that makes him that way. Well I'd say I is experience This is not his first Rodeo You know he's he's been a proven player in this league has a long track record has a lot of experience. Different kinds of receivers he's played against. You know home range of different guys. So I think that's probably the first thing you know when your quarterback and you go out the practice and there's a guy that you've seen on film for four years and you've seen one opponent film and you've seen him, you know defend different wide receivers. I think that respect goes along way citizen familiarity there but you know just you know a guy that that knows his job technique wise You know that has a nose for the football. Those those are things that a quarterback is gonNA be concerned about when it comes to throw into particular receiver. Jimmy and then Davidson garrow. David go. Girardi answer my question. Double up on. A more sickness this room by the way looks like I'm on. A scene from zero dark thirty. I got I. Got Lights in my face. We got a camera. I. Feel like I gotTa either start blinking or I gotta start reading a message. From you know from terrorists or something at hold up his newspaper again now. PROOF OF PROOF OF LIFE Before he said that the cornerback spot opposite Darius is an open competition but with the limited time is, is there enough time for that open competition and you gotta mix in layers we saw. Yeah you're going to see a lot of different players. I mean obviously when you look at a guy like sleigh or you look at Rodney McLeod or Fletcher Cox or Brandon Graham, you're GonNa have a good idea that they're going to be out there and we won but we're going to we're going to match a lot of different You know a lot of different combinations and there's GonNa be some days just because of our accelerated camp on there's GonNa be some guys. That have days off. So you'll see some guys in their We've seen the last few years how important it is to plug players in and still have a level of success. So we've always tried to do that during training camp. Anyway, just sort of you know throw different groups out there mix and match guys number one to be able to see players against different competition. So you're not sort of working against the same guys all all training camp but But number two, just to have a comfort level with the other guys that are that are out there. So we'll do that for a lot of different reasons, not just competition but we what plenty of time for competition and coach Peterson has given us some good opportunities to get some. You know not quite game situations, but as close as we can simulate and while the good chance to get everybody and opportunity and be able to make decisions you know in a few weeks. Death and then Kristen. Jim last time you spoke you weren't asked about Derek Barnett but we spoke a few players and coaches about him and they were saying how he seemed You know coming in healthy for the first time seem to be a good for him a clearly. But here we are the first week of camp or at least padded practices in any back on a deal was a week to week injury. Is there some correlation between his size? I guess he would say he's probably on the smaller side for that position and the injuries that he's gotten over the last several years. Now I I think the injuries he he's had haven't been related that I've had a lot of really big guys. That have had injuries to its physical game is a physical position, defensive, tackle, and defensive? End. I think the only positions that make contact with somebody on every single play I mean, you can be an offensive guard and it's pass protection and there's nobody over you and you can sort of just sit there and you might not have contact with somebody but defensive tackles defensive ends take a load every play whether you're three hundred and fifty pounds or two hundred and fifty pounds. There's a toll that comes derek place so hard and place a wide open. He doesn't You know he he doesn't. He doesn't take any plays off You know we're we're we're real. We're I'm I. Still Am very pleased with where Derek is and I think he's going to have an outstanding year this year. Good Preston than like. Hey Jim. Hope you're doing well, obviously with no preseason games it's kind of you touched on it, but it's different to evaluate where the rookies are right now. Can you take us through what it's like to slip those reps in your approach because you also need the veterans to be ready for week one while also trying to evaluate younger. Yes that's a really good point because we do have sort of two concurrent agendas in training camp and sort of were sort of almost endless game prep type week you know trying to get guys ready for Washington. And then also trying to develop players and we're trying to and we're trying to also evaluate players. So one hand we're really driving toward. You know we're we're you know we're only a few weeks away from from going and playing a game for real and on the other end, we have guys that are basically brand new that we need to find out. As much as we can coach, Peterson, stunned really good job of mixing different periods in practice that way we have some periods that are very specific towards trying to get a group that's already experienced ready to play and and we have enough other periods where you know where we can see guys and evaluate and develop I think it's going to be an ongoing. Thing, this year I mean abbreviated training camp isn't going to be end of our developmental program. You're going to see some stuff early in the season where we get some younger guys a lot more work than than they would, and in previous years it reminds me a lot of two thousand eleven two thousand eleven was lockout year we started a. Little bit late. Now, we had all preseason games but we were on a little bit of an abbreviated schedule and we were able to get everything in like an endless Jim last year early press concentrating heavy brought up house on Ridgeway was a new guy that kind of gotten the system and impress you right away. WHO's the new guy this year? That's kind of. acclimated himself pretty quickly and impressed you. Too early to say you know yesterday was the first day with pads and it really wasn't a competitive period you know in and coach Peterson's terms it was a ten ten Tan you guys that saw that even though probably looked very competitive, it really wasn't a true evaluation kind of thing was always just one of those I I of pads. coaches always taken that approach of you know. Not throwing red need out there for those guys the very first day. So let's just reserve judgment on guys require pads and You know to to truly evaluate them. Let's give them. Let's give them this first week, and then maybe I'll I'll be able to better answer that question You know maybe this time next week. Less than Zach. We've been talking for a good while now about this defensive tackle rotation theoretically and last year forced me out. Now you're you're preparing for the season without Japan? Hargrave. Ever. GonNa get what you're what you're looking for here and with Japan. Does he play a position where maybe it's Easier for him to get ready for the season without wraps in terms of scheme and so or the classic of what he does than say if. Your linebackers. Just start their first vons, Jay Z. Is a experience player and generally when those guys come in, it's the not learning how to play football learning the way you play and it's more terminology and things like that. So so young vets tend to get up to speed really quickly You know when it comes to that kind of stuff but you know I, think there are some positions that just by the nature of their position as it it's a little easier to plug typically young players in defensive line outside corn already. Mentioned safeties and linebackers, and particularly with where offenses go with the complexity of offense with all these jet sweeps and distractions and zone region, RPO's and all that stuff that builds into it thinks change really fast. It used to change because a guy would sorta trot across half speed in motion and you had to go from one thing to another now that same guys going in motion and it looks like the start at one hundred meter dash in the Olympics and you have to go. Super Super Fast so you know D. Line doesn't necessarily have those kinds of complexities. It's more of a physical game for those guys up. There were not super complicated when it comes to those guys. So it will be it I i. think it'll be an easier transition for a guy like j. you know and and you know we'll. We'll see where we give with those guys. Injuries are part of the game we seen it you know we we've had to deal. With it, you know you can have a plan, but you know Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson was famous for his saying about plans So better plan and you better be ready for goes because it's just a matter of time before things don't go to plan over course of the year but themed teams that can balance those things and find a way to still be competitive and still have success at teams that are going to be rewarded at the end of the year. Time, for one more, go ahead Zach ATM. Since we spoke to you, last you sign if any current does vinnie take on the same role at last year and if so how does that affect the development potential playing time of these young of these young edge rushers like sweat Avery Miller they spent time developing yeah. You know I think that he had an outstanding. Year for last year one of his best. So it was it was good to get him back. He's veteran plyer that You know we talked about some of these young guys needing all these reps and everything. Then he's a guy that needs to get ready doesn't quite need as many reps I don't think it'll hurt the development of of the younger guys. you know you're not gonNA find a coach that says more good players bad situation. So we added good player trusted player in our Schema Guide has had success in our game a guy that means a lot to our locker room to our spirit You know. So we added a guy like that I see that as a bonus going to take away from the development of of those younger guys. Thank you Jim thanks.

I on your host. Michael Kissed while on me on twitter at Michael Kissed and Velvets K. I S. T. Make sure you're following at degen underscore radio and you're also subscribed to the feed because we have plenty of content coming your way as we work through the weeks and months leading up to free agency and be two thousand twenty. Nfl draft today we have NFL combine. Press conferences for you with Howie Roseman and Doug Peterson taking the stand. They talk about a range of topics that include how aggressive they're looking to be an agency. Potential return of Jason Peters Press Taylor's contributions to the red zone offense and much much more so stay tuned for that briefly. Let's talk about this combine schedule. Weigh INS and interviews have already started and today on Thursday. You're going to get your first on field. Workouts and athletic testing as quarterbacks tight ends and wide receivers take the field to show it. They got Friday. You're going to see the special teamers offensive linemen and running backs. Saturday is for defensive. Linemen and linebackers and finally Sunday is all about the defensive back so a wave of information is about to crash upon our shores. Make sure you're locked here as we take you through it every step of the way but for now. Let's join Howie Roseman when he was at the podium and Indie Want to start off by congratulating the Kansas City chiefs on their world championship Mr Hun Co Tree Brett featured in their entire staff. Now it's hard to watch the Super Bowl when you're not in it but obviously there's a lot of bonds that tie us with that organization in that team and Just congratulations as we start off wide receiver. We're always looking TAD WEAPONS AND HELP FOR OUR QUARTERBACK. You know it's a big part of our job is to try to surround him a playmakers protect him of course And so that's something that will always be focused as we started off season decision. Have you made a decision about Jason? Peters Yeah I think as it pertains to all of our free agents. I think it's important that as we go through this process we keep an open mind with everyone and try to figure out as get more information a big part of this. Week is accumulating information. That's what we'll do here. You know obviously when time Jason Peters. You're talking about a hall of Fame Player. Hall of Fame Person. Someone who's very special to us and you know played it at a really high level last year so We'll go through all those decisions this week and now kind of stock answer as it goes to every free agent. We can talk about here. I guess in the franchise's history and I have to deal with them differently than other players others no question when you talk about guys that are historic players in the national football league guys who are going to the hall of fame guys going to the Eagles Hall of fame Those guys are special people on special players. And you don't have a lot of those during the course of your career and and so you try to make decisions. I that are best for the Football Team. And at the same time how have respect appreciation for what guys have done and we'll guys have done going forward in a going to be part of your nation a long period of time which is more than double? I think there's two parts of that all when we sit here. I think the first part is when you look at the teams who won the Super Bowl. There's also veteran components of the team. So we're not talking about a total rebuild. We're talking about a retool period and injecting some youth We got a lot of highly paid players on our team good players. That's why we paid them. And so you have to supplement them with some good young players and then we know that in the draft no matter how good you are there is a hit and miss rate. It's just the nature of the beast at that and so the more draft picks you have the better chance you have on hidden on guys in and we really haven't had those now. We did it for a reason. You know we. We sacrifice the draft picks because we were in a win now mode and fortunately we won But at the same time now some of the repercussions for that come forward and we gotta make tough decisions so as we sit here. Love to say that we're GONNA be having ten picks but there were moments in the last two drafts were there were guys within reach John. Gone on Buddy. This can be great that at that. WanNa move up and we just didn't have the ammunition to do it so If there is a guy still that we thought was incredibly how valued and we could go up and go get him. We can take that off the table particularly deep physicians running back in seventeen defensive line last year. You didn't take early thanks. You didn't take is early in those drafts. Did you learn anything about that as it pertains to receiver this year? Yeah I don't think necessarily it's a mistake not taking guys early in the strength of that trap because what happens is guys at other positions. Follow you because of that and that gives you an opportunity still value. The end of day got take the right players you know. And so when we look at back at those drafts and Maybe some of the decisions that we made. Maybe when you go into a draft thing. Hey I'm gonNA come out and you mentioned in seventeen running backs you go into thinking this such great class. I'm going to get one and then maybe you you kind of have this in the back of your mind. I'm going to come out of the draft with that position and then as it gets later in the draft. Maybe you're trying to force some things but I think what we've learned about that. Is that sometimes there drafts. You can't really there's not a rhyme or reason sometimes there's drafts where you go a great running backdraft and so we're GONNA get a guy later than we thought and sometimes in that situation guys are going. I'm going to get the one. I really like it. Make sure that if it's a historical class this is a guy I really like. I don't know if I answered a question. But how dare you slide? Juniors on the mortgage are you looking at trade for him to prove your quarterback depth. Are you looking at me? Fine tampering with another team in question. Yeah we're not gonNA answer about any players on other teams you know. It's our job to explore everything. We are going to look at everything Trademark of free agent market the draft to improve our football team younger faster roster. Alshon in Jack's fit into that and considering the injuries last year. Do you feel like you can count on them next year to contribute players again. We're trying to balance. We have good players who are not twenty three and twenty four years old and when you look at. Who's winning and even when we one you're going to have players. That are still in their prime. That are twenty eight twenty nine thirty thirty plus that can contribute for When you talk about kind of that position as a whole I think goes back to my first answer always gonNA look for playmaker's role is GONNA look for guys. Who can help coach who can help? Carson. And we'll just kind of have to figure out how we're GONNA fit everything into the puzzle. Shawn's returned from his injury. We'RE NOT GONNA get into any timetables on injuries. But I think when you talk about Alshon the most important thing for Sean is getting healthy as quickly as possible. Two Thousand Sixteen to get Wentz. What do you think today's world it would take the move upstate from seven to one in the draft and and what's the risk of mortgage and a lot of the future draft picks? We do that. I think it's kind of a catch twenty two when you're talking about the quarterback position because it's really hard to win unless you have a great quarterback and you have a really great team built around that guy and if you don't have the Guy That signal caller. It's hard But you gotta be right and So I think I'm glad that we're not in that position right now. To think about what would be the right compensation and just focus on how we can help. Our quarterback get better and surround him with better players we once. Would you think tough Jake? So he said that he wants to. It's been a great player. Great person for us you know as it relates to contract negotiations with all our players. Those are things will try to keep in house and You know have honest conversations with all our players. What's your what's your process for Evaluating Patch. Dress either personally or as a staff. How how do you go about doing? Yeah I think they're great learning tools at the same time you know. You GotTa look at some of the things that may be overvalued some of the things you've undervalued. How the game has changed. What things are happening I think you go back. And you look at at a draft like two thousand twelve at the quarterback position and maybe there are guys who went later than they would at a time like now because maybe they were unique at that time. And so you're not probably not getting a guy like that in the third round anymore. Where maybe you got them in. I'm proud about the fact that Some of the greatest players in eagles history are part of our draft classes. You know some guys. We're GONNA go the Eagles Hall of fame now. Can we do a better job? There's no doubt about it and we're GONNA do whatever we can to do. A better job but there is some projection involved in taking guys who are twenty one and twenty. Two changing their surroundings putting money in their pocket changing their system changing their scheme. So you try to the best of your ability take the guesswork out of it But we've also seen some examples where now some maybe objections we had to change based on some of the success guys have have. We talked about the end. The season Meeting that we had with all of you guys that sometimes things change and you gotta look at it from a different Lens and continue to grow and learn and get better. I had off season. You made significant changes to medical and training staff is a reflection of all the injuries that you guys have adored over the last three seasons. I think the first part about it when we talk about some of the people left Sharon decided not to renew her contract. She's got family on the West Coast. And she decided to move back to the West Coast and appreciate her work and wish her well Sean Holes contract expired as well. We had a unique opportunity. I think that We have the need and we got two guys and Tom and Ted. That very excited about that. We think are going to be huge additions to our football team and we gotTA look at anything. We can to get better. You know We owe it to our players to our coaches or organization to our fans to find ways to get better. I'm feel like we're very fortunate to get those guys in charge of their respective departments. Yes that's a great question you know everyone. In performance and strength will report to Ted and everyone in the training rules reports atop of invention. Dr D-notice we was going to evaluate during the season. Your whole training and Rehab Process. Can you tell us anything about that? Evaluation what he found it needed to change. Yeah we wanted to step away from it. That's why we're GONNA make changes right away or add anyone right away and kind of get a fresh lines because obviously when the season ends. You're disappointed that the season ended and We've had a lot of injuries last couple of years. There's no doubt about it and I take responsibility to for the things that I can do. Better there But I think when we looked at it and saw the opportunity some people leaving in the opportunity to get people that we think are going to be really outstanding for our football team without a no-brainer side qualify. Well mostly last year. Because we had ten picks over two year period we sat there and felt like and we paid Carson and have a lot of highly paid players aren't team. We felt like we needed a year where we knew we were going to double digit draft picks and so now I look at it that Some of those guys that will be released during the season. They're good players and they were good players For the teams that they went to after they came to us but for us going forward to have those picks into no we had those picks was important to sitting here now and feeling like we're going to have ten picks and We need that amount of guys now when we look at it. I think scenario changes a little bit in terms of if we can get the right free agents were not in a mode. Where maybe we try to find the undervalued older guys. Have we try to find the last couple of years and Going forward trying to build this over a period of time. We're not kind of in this one year window. We talked about it again in January. About how looking at this twenty twenty twenty twenty one twenty twenty two in this three year period of getting guys who are part of it I guess kind of similar to how we look to free in two thousand sixteen seventeen. You don't really have many players. Scheduled become is just now as far as the starters go. Does that free you up maybe to be able to spend more this offseason knowing that? That's Jewish coming up. Yeah I think the one thing we gotta be careful of is the amount of capital and we have this year and then how it's affected next year years going forward because we don't want to be in position where we lose flexibility totally by doing that so we're hopeful that if we go into the fridge market that maybe we're shining guys that are more core guys and more one or one or two year guys and we look at it from building our team over a two three year perspective as opposed to just kind of this one year window tracking. It's a great resource for us. It's not the end all be all as we look at it but being able to get that shows play speed as much as it does tracks feet so When that kind of matches up like any decision you know we talk about a lot. We want the tape to match up with the numbers and we feel really good. If one of those things is an equal maybe that changes the resource put on it. So it's the same with GPS data as a fall to what you were saying about. Free agencies is a fair to say that the approach is going to be different this off season and you'll be more willing to kind of get involved in the top of the market free agents as opposed to what you've done the past two years. I think we'll be fair to say Zach. Is that over the last two years coming off the Super Bowl. We had a different amount of resources going forward. And we're looking at our team building over that seventeen eighteen nineteen period and we knew a twenty that we're going to have to kind of change that a little bit so now we're looking at it over the course of window not that we don't WanNa win this year. We desperately want to win this year but moreover building this team over twenty twenty twenty twenty one hopefully twenty twenty two. It's hard to look three years out really but Keep our on that so I think that maybe changes the complexion of some of our decisions. this off season that is different than coming off the super bowl or coming off losing to the Saints Individual Investment in Andre Dillard. I frown I mean. How can you allow him to sit for another year? If you do have plans for Jason. Here's back Andre. Getting that experience Certainly left tackle was huge for him. we're very confident in his abilities to be really good player. But it's a good problem to have that have a lot of these offensive. Linemen that we think are players in that can play online deficient league and I think we feel fortunate that we have these good options in that. It's not the flip side. Were trying to figure out what we're going to do going forward on our offensive line that we have a lot of good options. Choose from the search you know. That's all coach Peterson. He makes those decisions at the same time. Just like when I'm hiring staff member promoting staff member. I want him to interview him. I want him to get to know him. Because we're all in this together And so that's kind of how we roll on everything I if I'm hiring somebody. As part of my staff they sit down. Coach Peterson But at the end of the day I got have responsibility for that decision. And when he's hiring anyone you know he's GonNa make that decision but You know we get a chance to sit down and talk a little bit. But it's all based on his perspective and what he's looking for. Hello this is Dave Fox. I'm a senior editor at vulture and host. The podcast. Good one a podcast about jokes. It's a podcast about well jokes.

Subscribe for free on Apple podcasts. Or on your favorite podcast APP. You do not use the puck this effort. Oh what a great question. Just David Fox. I wouldn't get obviously with backup quarterbacks. You guys have nick foles and then Josh mccown last year this year. Maybe I feel more of a prominent role. How do you feel about putting suffield? That's yeah I mean we. We've been real comfortable with an eight. He's been with us now. The last few years Very comfortable with him. Obviously he has an opportunity and and we'll see what happens this spring when we get down the down the down the road here with him but you know he he's he's put himself in a position to compete and and possibly be our number. Two running backs skies have been injured in guys have been. Kinda retiring are you. Are you combine this week? Bedford of you know this is. This is a great opportunity for US. Coaches. This is the first time for us to really put eyes on these college players and and we're looking to add value and talent at every position. Not just running back but We've done this last couple years and we're GONNA continue with this process. Really been really honest over the last few years he kind of. Use it for your by your thing. Have you talked to him expecting evacuated applying next year? You know I saw at the end of the year when we had our exit physicals and had a chance to sit down with him. And you know I think Kelsey is in a really good place With every player especially veteran players. I want them to take time. You know be be with their families. Get Away from the game. You know refresh recharge and we'll we'll cross those bridges but obviously we love to have you grow in one day later after you had said that maybe you had me to change what changed in that one day. I'm going to go back to. Wip interview that. I had about a week later. And you didn't well for those who did. Thank you You know that decision. Obviously I I was not clear. In what what I said in the communication level there and and I was still in my valuation process of my entire staff at the time and and so it was just You know A situation where I just misspoke and You know apologized to that was fired. You know there's Times where Of course the season of the year Thinks just Things just don't work out you know and and You know I'm constantly evaluating everybody in in my coaches. Know this coming into this into this business into this Our Organization and I have to make tough decisions. We have to do it with the players. We have to do with coaching staff. And and so. It's just made that Jeffries. There was not there was not. You know it's it's this is one of the things that I appreciate about Jeffrey. How is they give me A total control over the staff. Are they interested and do they? Do they talk to me about certain guys? WanNa talk to candidates. Sure they do I think it's it just behooves them to have all the information you know with guys that I bring into the building so they give me that that control to make these decisions and You know I gotta make the tough ones but at the same time felt like made some really good hires than spring sears. Your next you know how I think in this. There's no guarantees in this business. I am excited however with air. And he's a former player. He's been around some great minds in this league. You know. He's worked with and played with Peyton manning and and Here here in here in indy. And he's now coached the position. Obviously collegiate level you know. He's got the right demeanor and I'm excited to work with him and and You know get him on board. Get them caught up to what we're doing and look forward to this off season offensive staff with ruined coordinator and asking coordinator and also adding. Scanty Rela. Is he going as going to be your quarterbacks coach essentially and you're the third team rams in the forty niners also have this run pass separation wise at last? I think number one now. My office coordinator doesn't have to talk to you guys. That's that's going to be. That's going to be V. Right and I mean the thing is listen I for the last four years I have had an office coordinator and by position and by title and and yet when it comes to Game Game Day decisions game calls. I'm the one that's calling the place so the office coordinator doesn't do that. And so I. I thought long and hard about this and it's why I took my time this off season. You know with these decisions with rich putting him in a in a in a senior offensive position and in promoting press to a pass game coordinator. I I really feel like that. That in order for us to grow. I've got to give him more as a coach. I got put more on his plate. I want him in a quarterback's Rome I still want him to be around. Carson in the guys and he's done outstanding job there but at the same time I want him to have more of a of you know his fingerprints on game plants and then rich comes in. He helps bridge the gap with with coached outline as the run game coordinator in now press and bringing all those pieces together along with myself and having such a collaborative game plan approach allows us to really have more I think a better sense of of our game plan that we're going into each each game risk so I just made that decision and obviously with it ultimately is. It comes down to me on Game Day with Colin Place Evaluation Process. That you consider giving up play call. No no not yet not yet. That's the part that keeps me. Attach support keeps me. You know it mile motivation right is is to be around the players to stand up in front of the room and install the plays during the week and and and be connected to the team. Offensively that way with all the other things I have to do so Play calling never never brought up. Did you find it hard to bring in a potential Caesar Offensive Systems? If they didn't get the call place I mean that's always something. I think a candidate who who wants to be an offensive coordinator. If they're going to a place where the head coach is calling plays or somebody else's Colin Place. Yeah that's that's difficult. That's difficult than and so some of the candidates. I spoke with and and even even brought into the building You know that was that was brought up and and I. I told him a front that you know. This is a position where you know. I'm still GONNA call the plays. I'm not going to give that up and they have to be comfortable with that and You know I listen to. I have hard time to I was interviewing for coordinator's job having called plays previously had be tough to tough to give up. Rich has the background in the SHANAHAN system. You guys have west coast and spread guys with different backgrounds. What's your vision for? How kind of how this is going to work together. Why do you want guys with such different backgrounds? Yeah I mean it's it's again are our approach has been very collaborative. Approach has been very very direct in in in from the standpoint of you know you hire position coaches for reasons not just to coach position but also to have input on on game plans and so having Ridge now being in and being around you know Kyle and his You know his offenses whether be in Atlanta in San Francisco and being around quarterbacks you know Matt Ryan and Obviously Garoppolo at Nick mullins in San Fran these guys He brings a and then having coordinator experience in Denver last year. Just For me very intriguing to to be able to bring in a guy that You know is is going to help Carson number one. It's going to our offense is going to. He's going to be a guy not not solely his responsibility but allowing us to take our our offense maybe to a to a different two different level as something that We weren't We weren't as good at last year in the last couple of seasons and those are all things that that you know. I have to take a look at your right through the evaluation process so I'm excited to work with rich and air guys. You know as we get ready for for. Ot's various roles one. He's as I mentioned he. He's going to be. He's going to be to bridge the gap he's GonNa be able to bring together the Ron Division in the passing division right and bring that together with a blend of of of new formations and plays and things that kind of tie everything together right And and so. That's that's going to be a key component. Obviously game plan. He's going to have his hands all over the game plan as well A lot of a lot of communication lot. Lot of film study yeah. He'll work with quarterbacks just like like I am in that room so you'll have a chance to do that as well and have some input there and and you know. Just assist with us on offense. I think I said the same thing about Darren sproles Kinda coach. Jr Straight lines gang and inquiry corey. Wow hard hard to you know. Obviously lose in tough to lose a guy like corey. They're getting the guy that he's going to be his players are going to be well prepared He gets the most out of his players players. Play hard for them and You know I'm excited for for for him. And being in this role with Detroit and with coach Patricia exciting to see where his career goes now. Production from the wide receiver. So what needs to happen? Get more production. Maybe injuries healthy. That's accession that every you know I was asked the other day about speed and all this other kind of stuff I mean. I think everybody here in this. This week is is looking for for speed and the next the next diamond in the rough and and and as we go through our evaluation process. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA find in pick the best the best players we can to help the Philadelphia Eagles. And that's how we get better talk about the relationship between Carson. Lanson Sean Jeffrey. You're in the building. Every day you see him interact view that as a problem for some of these people are. Donald can come back next year. Yeah I I don't I don't see that I think one of the things that were Carson really took a big step was in that leadership approach this past year getting everybody on the same page and onboard and and you know it's just unfortunate because we had a lot of high expectations as an offense going into the season and then when pieces started to drop out it's just unfortunate that way But there were there. Were no issues between those two. I think it's you know again. I I think it's a talented group. I think there's some guys here that Obviously can can can make an impact with you know and and with whoever picks them in drafts them. So something position. We'll take a look at it as As we do each year backup quarterbacks horsens at the point now healthwise experience wise that you could maybe go with a younger actually at that position. I think you could. I think I think you gotta be careful. It's gotTa be the right guy you know. Obviously it's gotTa be a guy that that You know you feel comfortable. Maybe maybe playing a game or two you know but at the same time you know what we've done with that position as we brought some veteran guys the past couple of seasons that have got us through and and You know we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA take a look that we always do. I mean that's obviously something that is important to me having been backup quarterback in the importance of that. So you know. We'll evaluate that this this offseason quarterbacks in the NFL. Either as backups. Or starters as it. Why do you think that is played pretty good ones Scott Mitchell years ago? Like what what? Why is it so hard to make it as lefty? I don't know good question. It's really good question whether they're they're playing baseball other sports but yeah Unique Stat. I'm not sure why honestly now now left handed right hand does matter. Can they complete passes or not? I mean that's bottom line out doesn't matter to me if you're right or lifted ambidextrous guys to if they can throw both great are you. I made aware of Scoundrel I we. I mean to wear risque so listen to this. Whole whole searches is a funny business. When you start talking to other coaches and whether their head coaches in this league in you're asking about certain Certain coaches and then start talking about guys his that and the other certain names come up and his name name came up and so I did a little more little more of a deep dive with him and and really felt like he was a guy that of interest for me and and Love the fact that he has old west coast routes So he and I it off right away from the standpoint of you know offensive play design and really felt comfortable with you know having them in our building.

Nfl Draft Series on this episode. We talked to Missouri. Offensive Lineman Yasser Durant. He let us call him by his nickname. Ya Ya is a beast. He thinks he's the best player in the way that quote in episode. It's absolutely amazing. And you know what you gotta think it if you're going to study in the league so you're seeing Mizzou orelon stomach. Let's get it. I mean we just met literally two seconds ago but I believe you go by Ya. Ya and I liked that nickname. Do Do we think? Even I can get in on that for sure. All my friends Korea so all right there we go. Yeah Yeah so so Ya Ya have you here Let's just get it out ahead. What is Katie? Your brother sister. Aunt your uncle no. I'm sure man without honestly I probably would a definitely no one hundred percent. Yeah I mean I saw a lot of two but I in some on believe me. You know if you if you didn't tell me you're kidding. I would rather tat around still might honest. You might. Well he's here. So what is like? You're feeling right now because the NFL draft is quickly approaching a little under three leagues. Obviously run an opportunity to attend. But you know you're sitting Opportunity Act. Which is I'm sure a dream of yours. How does it feel to be a potential draft Canada I mean I it made when you know Do sluggish dream come true just as a little kid and just looking at watching combine like a little kid for me. I I. Didn't I played high school so it was like this? Is All just a dream? Come true for man you know. I feel amazing and I can't wait for the next up so I'm glad that you said that you grew up watching the combine everything. So we've done like we told you we've done nine of these draft series podcasts with a bunch of different dudes bunch of great conversations and every single one of them. We try to we asked. We like listen. Did you grow up a fan of the NFL? Like did you have childhood team growing up and it seems like you did grow up a fan of the NFL. I swear eighty percent of these guys are just like honestly like I never really grew up while the NFL for you did. You haven't seen growing up. I was always the eagles there. And that's really go. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah I was. The Eagles Fan my household was much fan so I watched them a lot growing up. I really I wouldn't say I watch every a lot of teams growing up like so I was. I wouldn't say like a huge football fan but He was always my team. I watch them teary achieving okay. So where were you on February? The force Two thousand and seventeen eighteen. Eighteen eighteen. Runs the nowhere. You watched the Super Bowl when the eagles I would actually on my teammates house I was. I was up in Missouri and I actually crazy. How fell asleep before right before he came on so I think I woke up. Probably the first quarter like toward the end of the first quarter star watching it and they had one. I mean I always knew they were GonNa win but when they finally one I wanted to vote. I mean soon enough honestly especially if you come to Philadelphia. You'll have that feeling but I am still very much caught up on an eagles fan falling asleep. An hour before kick-off yeah. Yeah that I work out for stuff bows week. I was right on right on. Broad Street has his own dreams of fine the super bowl so maybe because years cut short. We're still in our dreams. Wait mine got cut. Short years ago you weren't on the team well all right. So Abe finally after ten draft. Podcast get someone to say using Eagles Fan so he is pretty much satisfied. You've made him happy. But let's flip with dominion. See some mock drafts. Where yes. You're Durant is marked a my Baltimore Ravens and they're let me stop you there. Yeah don't nobody WANNA block for a guy like Lamar Jackson. Why it's too much running. It's too much moving all over the place. Ya Ya does not WanNa go to Baltimore. He wants to come up ninety five and come home. You can stop it there. All right. I'M GONNA give my question you see. What would it be like to play for the Ravens behind the Mark Jackson? Like what type as an offensive line? What type of team do would you truly want to play for me? I don't really have a favorite team you know I will. I'll always want to pay for my hometown team. I mean No doubt by. I don't really have a person. You know whatever teams. GimMe a shine. Believe me that's why I want to play for. That's that's I feel not so a big part of your story that I've picked up on. My research is really are likes. Affiliate rained hard. And you feel like you're out of the mud near your grinder. I've seen that because you didn't just start at Missouri so talking about your mentality and why do you think that's GonNa pay off for you when it comes to leave Pale because at the end of the day is all about you know grounded? There are competing next person. And you know that's what I had to do my whole my whole life you know. I didn't have a starring. God come in high school and I. I didn't pay an employee in my in Tim. Bery here by for and so I don't work my way up to become a player and Winter Arizona West Juke oh I just start from the jump when I got there though. Work my way into a into a to a starter Missouri. You know I got there. And they are had their alarm coming off of a Gray Caesar and let attack with that play. Every game that season and with Bhai arguably player tackles S. You went there and gone to know under star like Persona Charlie. Just you know not not taking no for answering just gone. They have Enough Natalia. Dog Mentality you know. I think that helped me a lot my career so far. Love that so so you went from Juku. How'd you end a bit Missouri for transferring? Was there somewhere else that you were considering but you ended up at Mizzou kind of like a thing. Ever crew coordinator was Be New my high school coach. So that's kind of like how we got there. congressional committees and they will stay at a Allow so so. It was a great career there and then off to the NFL. Obviously you went to combine correct. How how was that experience for you like before it was made you know like. I say I was watching this. I was a kid so you know everything that was happening. You know just seeing you know facing that you know you watch on TV. You know talking to these guys you know talking to different players like around the nation and you know just sharing your sharing your journey then make another type of connection. Then I'll just that's what you need and it was a real blessing to be there. I'm curious because there's a lot of stuff that you see at the combine like you see the drills you see the numbers that you put up but there's a lot of other stuff that the people on TV don't see right. You guys are going into meetings with probably every team formal or informal. Well however that may be and you're getting and you're getting asked different questions from different teams but we sometimes see that some funny stories come at combine most notably that. I can remember decay mccafe's last year. He took his shirt off in the meeting and Pete Carroll took his off. Did you have any type of weird experience like that or someone asks you a funny question? house has got to Not Not really all this crazy that keypad carol. I had an interview with With those guys and He'd be Carolina's He he's a funny guy. He's the rural of world. I would say turned up. Guy Guys Guy. Yeah like it was just funny and You know saying the coach Fanta coaches laugh and joke like that was like like this. I. I can see why you know. He just coach so on the opposite at Nagano. Nfl page will listen to this. Just so you know I thought is the opposite of Pete Carroll just like a total. Harto map patrol. No actually. I haven't really met any I met a couple of coaching but when I was down there I don't think any of them any other was You know Or Bat get other. Light was was matt rule I knew my room think I was in ninth grade so creamy Timbale and asking him down there and he's talking to me and him no my background and not make me laugh joking than like but he always been that God. Did you did get to meet Doug. Oh coach Peterson Doug Peterson. Oh no no. I've talked to I talked to their coach coach assistant coach and running backs coach. I young boy is here. Who who were your. Who would you say like your friends are that you made it on my that? I can combine all. We had our senator from Missouri. So better by really. The guy was like really around or not But you know I I kinda move different different there. I will send that went through Georgia. He he's from New York. So I kind of newham coming out of high school Dr Jack Driscoll Farrah. Bring a touch him alive. Charlie Heck Things from North Carolina Th- rock from Oregon Calvin Brock his last name by those in our play with a couple of games. So that's makes sense so I'm curious because I love your mentality so right now you're projected to be anywhere from seconds in the fourth round right and I feel like you will leave your an incredible. Football Byron. I would like to believe that too. When you're projected to be in those middle rounds but you know in your head in your heart that you're gonna be one of the better players like do you. Think the best offensive lineman in the draft like what is the mentality and understanding within yourself up for sure. I'm sure now he's been my My thought says you know Even before Neier by was you know saying that I was good always thought partner so I've never changed to. Why do you think teams would slip when you're missile new or not understand that I mean I don't know I don't have no control under that? They likely like and they'll they all like me. I love that shorten sleep dunes a beast and that's just how good I guess here. Did you take the Wunderlich tests at the combat? Yes okay what did you think of it? It was me I took it. I took a are a junior day. Dorey when we had our Pro Day last year and the juniors picky so I kind of like I kind of not new it but I was kind of like you style and whatever but definitely a stressful though I will say okay so lucky for you we put together our own snapback Wunderlich tests where we've tested against NFL Wunderlich. And we've realized it's very a much better indicator of how your NFL career will progress. So you're willing to be up for the challenge. We can tell you whether or not you're going to be a hall of Famer. And the next seventy yeah. Oh I'm ready question. Number One pop culture question. You're familiar with the Kardashian family. And the Jenner family or you live under a rock. No yeah just nothing so there are a bunch of daughters. Obviously if you're going to date every one of the daughters for six months at a time. How long would it take you to date four months? Probably like But yeah farmers probably okay fair enough fair enough. I question too is an avocado fruit or a vegetable investable incorrect. Unfortunately because it has a pit and apparently we found out that anything was a pit is considered a fruit shop news to me as well. It's news to me as well. The vegetable right exactly So a little bit more mass ready. If you had one dollar for every single country that there is in the world if you took all that money how many big MACs would you be able to buy? I don't no I'm just make a number two. How many countries do you think that there are the seventy five okay? Horrible BETTER THAN OTHERS FIFTIES PRETTY MUCH. The closest gas night that solid. All right here now. We get tricky with you right so just don't get tricky about. Baretti off your snap quick but think about right here Yup. What is heavier a thousand pounds of bricks or a thousand pounds of feathers? Yeah Dude I need to hear his explanation trick question so I went with. The obvious choice is definitely a trick question but at the same time thousand pounds of bricks ways the exact same as a thousand pounds of feathers your family. Yeah both thousand pounds. But I. we're moving on this. Should be. There should be one. What is longer in terms of measurement and NFL football or a subway? Five dollars foot long. Oh I would I would say the sub the subway air we yard. Nfl Football is eleven inches long. I again tricky with you very tricky. Stick with me. I some months have thirty one days others have thirty days. How many months in the year have twenty eight days of God? It's all the months of twenty days. I told you we again trail. Where says yes? You're thinking February but all of them have. It was a trick question. We Guy Right more tricks. Dekalb moving on so you're running a race and you're running and you pass the guy that's in third place. What place would you now being? I okay now. He's catching on that John. This one's not a trick question. It's just impossible. So don't be discouraged because no one gets. I you know like ninth-place Tan plays eleven place twelfth place. You've heard of all those high twelfth that word can you spell the Word Twelfth W. E. P. A. Club that was close? That was actually one of the better. They put a random F- in there so it's T. w. e. l. f. t. h. or okay yeah they throw random lottery a clue okay Yeah I'll close US out here. This is the last question the test once again. Your question a monkey and a squirrel and a giraffe a racing to the top of a coconut tree. Who GETS THE BANANA? I got a monkey a monkey. A squirrel draft are racing to the top of a coconut tree. Who on unfortunately there are no Vanana coconut tree? You feel you feel me off. So that's our trick wonder like test. I hope you enjoyed is just a funny test. We like to give zone because we think the Wunderlich task you guys have to take isn't actually going to do anything when it comes to being in the NFL. We would much rather than ours with on. Its we've run rather you be a beast on the field than be able to answer fifty random questions in in ten minutes for Ya. Ya Close up here. What do you like to do like off the field? If you're not just throwing guys on their ass I I'm I game a lot like call. Duty Man Okay. So with that being said from that in what are you like? Are you excited to be in the game? Yeah hopefully I'll suck so yeah. I feel like they're gonNA give your shitty rating. They always do that. The rookies but I guess you can play like it'll be cool to see your name out there matter who's your tears if you play. Madden I usually pick the Eagles del. Yeah even pick the eagles or Jaguars okay really why the Jaguars I feel like. That's a rare team deficient matters. I have no idea. I can't really tell you I was. I was demarche stand for the past couple years. They had like you know good decent and but now you're kind of day not really that good now but I'm still yeah. I'm Nick Foles Fan.

So we have the latest trap free tonight and we begin with ABC the pilgrim in Myrtle beach leading us off. Tonight. Outer Bands of ECIE's closing in on the Carolinas and threatening the entire east coast with powerful winds and life threatening storm surge. Moving quickly enough that it won't really have a chance to weaken in New York City they're putting up long barriers in low lying areas to keep the water out. Corona virus cases and debts on the rise in several of the state's in East path Florida avoiding direct hit but forced to close some outdoor testing sites because of his wins the Carolinas might not be as lucky shelters will screen people for Corona virus symptoms shelters will have. And will honor social distancing been here thirty five years. We've never seen a situation like this for the hospital has been under this much stress weeks ago tied Lind's medical center just outside Myrtle beach had to call the National Guard to help handle all their cova cases. Tonight, preparing to face a surge in patients. The hospitals absolutely fullwood I the ICU as we're over capacity. The Er is a now with a storm common is just something else to deal with. ISE killed at least three in the Caribbean. Knocking out power to nearly half a million on. Puerto Rico. It could stay at or near tropical storm strength all the way to New England And we are starting to see those outer bands. This storm surge is expected to be three to five feet and the store will hit at just about the same time as high tide. It's also a full moon tonight. So that means a higher than normal tight and the potential for significant flash flooding the other major concern here tornadoes. This area is under a Tornado Watch until two am David. Yes. So take this very seriously either pilgrim our thanks to you tonight again, the Carolinas straight up into New York City in Boston. So let's get right to senior meteorologist Rob Marciano with the timing of the track of this, he's in Carolina Beach North Carolina's tonight hey rob. Hi David is not a cat three or four, but the track of this is just remarkable. Everyone on the East Coast is going to be impacted a hurricane warning right now for this beach at look at this, all these warnings and watches right up through New England, and that pretty much mimics the track which takes it into North Carolina and then up ninety five over New York City. Tomorrow. As even mentioned, we do have a tornado watch out tonight ahead. Of this storm, the center is about one hundred miles to our south and it will be making landfall next few hours. Potentially as a hurricane, it's going to have damaging winds damaging storm surge and win sixty eighty miles an hour between Myrtle beach and Wilmington Raleigh Richmond tomorrow morning then DC in Philly tomorrow afternoon, we could have tornadoes rolling up through this area as well. Philly New York tomorrow afternoon and into New England tomorrow night the next thirty hours, David. Will be in and as you said, it doesn't matter the category this storm it's going to be dangerous Robert thanks to you as well. We're thinking of all the families in the storm zone tonight in the medical workers already on the front lines against the corona virus and tonight we turn to the virus with Dr Deborah burks member of the president's team said the president to take aim adopter burks. She said what we are seeing today is different from March. And April that it is extraordinarily widespread. She pointed out it's into rural as well as urban areas. What the president just said about Dr Burks before we came on tonight as this evening, we also report the numbers here more than one, hundred, fifty, five, thousand, American lives lost today mark the first day of school for some children in Georgia. But in one school district alone nearly three hundred teachers and staff are out sick either infected by the virus or exposed to. ABC's Stevenson Saami from Atlanta tonight. In the middle of this pandemic, it is back to school today for the Addams family and Paldon County Georgia. And for many families across the country who school systems are offering in person instruction. That was hard. Here the kids aren't required to wear masks, but the atoms is children will be wearing them anyway. Under this I don't know how a five year old is going to be over handle. About an hour and a half to the East in Gwinnett County Georgia school hasn't started yet, but already nearly three hundred teachers and staff are out sick teachers who tested positive for Covid nineteen or exposed to someone who is infected in Mississippi and Indiana. The list of states is growing where teachers and students are testing positive justice. Parents are getting kids back into classes in my mind I'm thinking here we got in Washington the. White House. Task Force Coordinator is saying that all corners of the country are struggling with the virus have very clear. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily ride spread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas getting that message across is a challenge positive rates are climbing in two thousand five states California alone now has more than a half million cases in New York. Authorities arrested the owner of this party boat after photos. Showed big parties with little social distancing in New Jersey they believed that large parties have led to larger transmission, and now the governor is putting a limit on most indoor gatherings to twenty five people. We cannot move forward. If for few knuckleheads think the rules don't apply to them or they think they can be cute and Skate by with a wink and a nod of vaccine can't come soon enough an ally lillies now in the final. Stages of testing an antibody treatment that if it works could be given at nursing homes and clinics until a vaccine is ready, the hope is is that this is going to be not just a defense, but in offense and not only kind of hold back this virus but hopefully, concrete families in Georgia saying prayers tonight for Justin Hunter the corona virus claimed the lives of both of his parents just last week or temperature is skyrocketed had headaches. A horrible cough. This antibody treatment is similar to the antibodies that come from blood plasma from people who have donated after they've gotten sick with the virus except in this case, the antibodies are created a lab and tested to see what works David that's providing some new hope tonight as well. We'll be tracking that Steve Thank you and as you heard Steve, report there with Dr Burks said about the virus now being extraordinarily widespread in this country in rural areas and urban areas. The president lashed out at her, but he was pressed about this late today, and here's our White House correspondent Rachel Scott Tonight. Tonight President trump blasting Dr Deborah burks, calling her pathetic. After she warned, the pandemic has entered a new phase and the virus is extraordinarily widespread. The viruses receding in hot spots across the South and West we've seen slow improvements. This is the first time. The president has publicly gone after as Corona virus task. Force. Coordinator West has a West Wing Office and briefs Him regularly riding in a tweet in order to counter Nancy Debra took the bait and hit US referring to House Speaker Nancy. Pelosi. Who slammed Dr Burks for letting the president's false claims go unchecked I. think the president is spending a spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his. She is his appointee. So I don't have confidence to their no. I have never been called Pollyannaish, our nonscientific data driven and his briefing late today president trump insisted the US is seeing significant progress i. think we're doing very well. I told Dr Brooks I think we're doing very well she was in my office a little while ago. I should have a lot of respect for Dr Burkes is the latest public health experts find herself on the wrong side of the president. He's attacked Dr Anthony Fauci on testing contradicted Admiral Brett you or hydroxy chloroquine even shutting down a nurse in the Oval Office in May over the availability of P. P. so P P has been sporadic, but it's been manageable sporadic for you got sporadic for. ADRI president wearing a mask in public just three times. The president has fueled an anti mask movement embraced by Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert who just last week announced he was positive with Kobe nineteen, his daughter. Now pleading with Americans tweeting my father ignored medical expertise and now he has cova. It's not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to win early grave. So let's get right to Rachel tonight we heard the president they're asked about Dr Burks but he also made news just moments ago Rachel. As you know the upcoming presidential election saying about a mail in ballots that he has the right to get rid of them. David. The president was asked today. If you would issue an executive order to stop mail in ballots, which he claims are subject to fraud saying he has the right to do it but that he's not there yet experts say voter fraud is extremely rare with mail in ballots. Many states are actually preparing for an increase in the middle of this pandemic and any effort the president would take to stop. It would likely be challenged in court David or Rachel Scott Tonight Rachel. Thank you and there are images coming in this evening of a horrible hot air balloon accident three balloons crashing several people including children rushed to the hospital. Here's ABC's up with Lake reporting. You can see those three hot air balloons hurtling across the Wyoming landscape the wind driving an into the turf. There's that bounce. And then the balloon baskets planted into the mud. Cries of children. Local sheriff saying seventeen people were transported to the hospital. It was horrific because you being dragged down to win its stock. You know that if you fall at, you're probably going to die because this. Cage weighs more than the bus is going to just slam. Dozens of people were aboard that of balloons which took off near Grand Teton village Wyoming around eight. Am People are screaming and I'm worried my other daughter faith WHO's fourteen she fainted My Wife's shot into my son to truckee piece arms in his chime is based not to fall out this drone video shows the aftermath, those giant deflated balloons, the scarred earth, an empty baskets. Now both the NTSB and the FAA say they will investigate and the local share of told me that he spotted storm clouds just before that crash he says that weather will certainly be a factor that they investigate David matter. Thanks to you as well. Then we're going to turn to that powerful video from federal judge tonight she was the judge who son was shot and killed when he answered the door at their home husband was shot too. He survived tonight here the judge plea and here's Tom. Yomas. A Madman. Who I believe was targeting me because of my position as a federal judge came to my house tonight the federal judge who lost her son in an ambush attack is demanding change. We're living every parent's worst nightmare. Making preparations. To Berry Berry. Our only child then. Judge Solid said the family was cleaning up after hosting a birthday celebration for twenty year old Daniel and Daniel said, mom let's keep talking. I. Love Talking to you. And it was at that exact moment. That the Doorbell Bell. Rang. And before I could say a word. He sprinted upstairs. Within seconds. I heard the sound of bullets. And someone's screaming no. Police say the alleged gunman self-described anti-feminist Attorney Roy den Hollander killed himself the next day in my case. The monster knew where I lived. And where and what church we attended. And had a complete dossier on me and my family. At the moment, there is nothing. But due to stop it and that. Is Unacceptable. David the threats against judges are real. The US marshals say the are increasing every year and. His family is proof. Sometimes, these threats become a reality David already. Tom. Yomas with US tonight. Thank you tom next this evening the new allegations against the Aurora Colorado Police Department officers now accused of confronting a black family mistakenly believing they were stolen vehicle children forced to the ground. That's stolen. Vehicle was actually a motorcycle in another state. Here's Clayton Sandell. Tonight confusion and questions about why police a war Colorado responding to reports of a stolen vehicle.

Will Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, or Carson Wentz be traded??

The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt

19:26 min | Last month

Will Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, or Carson Wentz be traded??

"Hey boys and girls welcome to another edition of the business with andrew brandt. I'm andrew granitz. Iran's addition so much going on in the nfl off the field and We'll talk about the three quarterbacks. Iran's carson wentz shawn watson and of course aaron rodgers get some other rebecca issues but as we sit here today. The business and the nfl is already speed. Even the season's not over we got a game left so we'll get into it and speaking of that game left. Yes heartbreaking to see the packers lose again. listen i'm a i'm in the business in one. One of the things about being in the business of football over the years. Is you kind of lose your phantom and everyone says to me that works in the industry. Just kinda lose your phantom. It's more business. It's more rooting for other kinds of things than teams. But you know when you're you see the helmet behind me when it's ten years in a place. That's a lot of time when you raise your kids in place when you know the players know some of them that are still there so anyway. Still big packer fan and big reason as my kids are still huge packer fans. So obviously we've gone through this year cited errands at the top of his game. The teams the best record in the nfc the number one seed. It looks like super bowl. Tampa's coming in been on the road. Five of the last six weeks. Coming to the cold of lambeau field all that stuff. And i flew down to be with one of my sons To watch the game. So yeah it's tough. You know even for old guy like me. It's tough to z. Loss it's been so many heartbreaking losses in the championship games the packers the hardest one of course was had seattle where they had a big lead and just a comedy of what happened to lose that game seven cisco back against atlanta and then of course this one was a heartbreaker as well so yeah my phantom. It's tough to talk about that game. It's tough to see what happened. But let's start there with the rants. Because i think we'll start with aaron aaron after the game make some comments. Excuse me in all of a sudden you here is You know as i tweeted out. He made comments. Everyone's future is uncertain including mine. He's down emotional fifteen minutes after the game and right away the talking heads. The people are saying he won't out you know he i heard. Espn people say. He played his last game in green bay. And i'm like what are you talking about. Like i mean there's so many ways to go with this and let's get the cap out of the way i if aaron rodgers is not bear twenty twenty one thirty two million on the cap for him. Thirty two million. It's not gonna be but cap is sort of the last reason it won't happen but a If they trade. Her and rodgers this year before june one course. Thirty to nine on the cabinet but the real reason that's not happening. Hello you don't trade the best player in the league. The packers come out and said that. Obviously they're not stupid. You're not gonna trade. Aaron rodgers i mean maybe if you get pat mahomes number one fixed maybe i mean come on so that is not happening. So everyone's asking me. So what does he mean. What's going on well. First of all econo- cleared it up the next day on pat mcafee. He just said listen. Numb emotional fifteen minutes after the game we might lose my buddy big dog mercedes. Lewis might lose langley who might lose aaron jones. We don't know what's going to happen. But i think the reason is we go back to april. The packers took a quarterback they took jordan love first round in the nfl draft. Just as we did fifteen years ago when we took aaron rodgers when we had the most quarterback in the history of the nfl team when he was still playing at a very high level we took aaron rodgers and there was a controversy. You know nali fans and media hated but brenton light brett farve. Didn't like it is agent. Didn't like have we heard about it. Within seconds of making the pick and we heard about it for a while now contrast that two thousand twenty aaron rogers sees this pick happen when he's interviewed. He does say yeah. It was a surprise but he's a good soldier at least publicly we don't know exactly what's going on internally but he says all the right things about jordan love he understands that he's been a good soldier but here we are he's the mvp league. He played even above standards for him this year and leading the team to the nfc championship and minutes away from going to the super bowl. Now he says these things in what i read into is like okay. What's the plan in enough said this now since it happened. I know other people are saying. Yeah he clarity. I'm like yeah. I said that right afterwards. What's the plan the plan for the packers knowing no. They don't want to admit to a plan just like we didn't want to admit to plan when brett was wondering what the plan was when aaron was wondering when he's gonna play. What's the plan here. Are they going to move to jordan. Love in twenty twenty two. We know that are going to do with this. You already said be stupid to trade. Aaron rodgers were not stupid is twenty twenty two twenty twenty three and then we go from there now when the draft happened. I said for the first time ever. We now have an expiration date on aaron rodgers. I never thought. I would ever say that the expiration date. If you force me to pick a date i would say twenty twenty two because i would say two year apprenticeship for love as opposed to the three year apprenticeship for rodgers why earlier because since rogers no-one weights. They all put offers quarterbacks play. Johnny menzel play. They all play and most employed by the first half of the first year. Whether it's josh allen josh rosen. Sam sam darnold Bigger may feel a jared goff carson wentz lamar jackson. They all the shawn watson they all play so jordan. Love is gonna play. He's not going to back up from forty years. He's not gonna just be a spot player. He's going to play you. Don't traffic the first round quarterback to and people say well maybe they'll trade them train them for what they moved up in the first round a guy that hasn't played. You're going to get better. Elat trump come on so anyway. He's gonna play so. I think aaron rodgers wants clarity and then you look at the contract. Now people say well. They're sten- they don't want to extend extending doesn't help anyone. He's got three years left. They're not going to hold them for three years anyways. So y extended and this idea that push out room now lives in someone who managed to capture ten years. You don't push out captured on someone that's not going to be there. You're creating the problem and that was my big thing there. I wanted to set up a team to be in a position to succeed. Not up to fail so my legacy i hope is one of them is leaving the team with only six hundred thousand dollars of dead cap ramon brett farr because i never went readjusted that contract in any big way now if they do that with aaron rodgers makes no sense. What i think will happen. I think they will adjust the contract for free money now. And maybe twenty twenty two. I'm sorry maybe twenty yes twenty. Twenty two if they're not moving on love until ultimate twenty-three what does that mean. More salary guarantee that's not a problem guarantee it or more roster bonus which is not for rateable not go out in the future years. Just get more money no strings attached more money wanna. I think that will be a concession. Aaron rodgers they probably should make whatever he's making thirty something million a year. You deserve more. Because he's the best player in the league and they should do that in that maybe will provide you know. Get this out of the news. Even though people always bring it up and it'll be happy. Last thing i'll say is on his contract and i said this when the contract was negotiated. Listen there were reports in two thousand eighteen year. Rogers going for all these things in the contract like adjusted salary. Cap adjusts in the marketplace. If someone gets ahead of them in the market adjusts that Future guarantees all the things. The packers did not want to do and they did not do the why because they threw a ton of money at aaron fifty eight million dollars signing bonus he signs up. Everyone's good they'd Aaron gets all this money. They continue to have their structure in their precedent. Now the packers a position like hey they got it all ways now. They've got the they've got the best panel league who's a placeholder. And how are they gonna adjust that so. My prediction is free money. No strings attached money pram rodgers this year and maybe next year but don't push out caf s not going to be anyone that's not gonna helping. Okay i'll get to more quarterbacks in a minute first.

The twenty eighth news came out that he has officially asked for trade in news day after they name a coach. David kelly is now new coach of houston texas. There's been a lot that does shawn watson unhappy that his defcon levels gone from two to ten that he wants out once out in. Everybody is photos shopping in new teams. We hear about the jets. We about the dolphin to all these teams. I have been on this lonely hill. And it's getting lonelier shawn watson is not going anywhere do i still feel as confident about. That may be not totally confident but more competent than anyone else. A few things. The main thing is it's january. It's january you know. We're seven months from when this really matters when we talk about holdouts when we talk about being a pain in the team being creating anx to get him out of there. You know okay. It's january number two account trade himself Number three we got a new gm. He tries to shawn watson he's going to have a hard time staying. Gm because they're not going to be any good. What's the value for deshaun watson kennedy get equal value. That would require a top quarterback plus. Is that can happen. So these are all the things you think about. When you talk about the shawn watson getting traded i just don't tend to react For the moment. Wise when i hear these trade requests. I know he's unhappy. I know he wants out. And maybe has formally requested a trade but listen these things happen. You know ron woolfe my mentor. Greenville used to say. I don't care about disharmony in january. February march i care about disarming in october november december. So let's see you know. All i'm saying is i know everyone is gonna come at me when if and when he's traded i same for wentz talking about a minute but i just want to say let's just. Let's hold the phone on. John watson definitely being a a team jet dolphin bear. Whatever you want to say. And let's see what happens. Let's see what happens with the shawn watson again. I'm voice of caution on these things as someone tweeted me today. You're the only one saying these kind of things. I get it in people. Come out bihar. We've been when he's traded. But i don't think he will be and the reason i don't is your best asset ends kinda like the packers. This management may be Non-communicative they may be problematic. They may have this evangelist running the team. But they're not stupid right. They're not stupid. It would be stupid to train shawn watson so i look at it from a management point of view. You know okays unhappy. How do we fix that now. You tell me it's unfixable. I'm not saying i'm not giving in yet. You know me with them. Where does the issue. What is the issue you know just like we talked about being clear with iraq aaron rodgers about what's the plan. Let's be clear for the agents for shawn watson team. What's the issue. Can we resolve it. How or not. And that's where. I'm looking at shawn watson so again i'm coming to you from the relaxed corner. Arielle about to shawn watson number one january and again this is james harden player empowerment when it happens and it's happened in the nfl couple times jalen ramsey khalil mack. But when it happens it happens when the teams there. It happens when they're in practice. It doesn't really happen now so we'll see and you know again. There's a lot of time to meet. There's a lot of time for feelings to tone out and will do so again. I'm standing on this. Lonely hill. Saying shawn watson watson is not going to be traded and i know you'll come at me hard for us okay. Let's say speaking of let's talk about another one carson wentz. They're coming at me. In december when all the espn sunday splash on to three consecutive. Weeks carson wentz out carson. Wentz wants out carson to be traded. Everybody's got him. Going to the colds frank reich waiting arms. Here's what's happening. I said no. I got on a lonely hill again. I said first of all. I got a three four million dollar capit- eagles aren't doing that with a reduced cap and they got cathy. She's all already number two. He's a fixable player. It seems like he was playing an mvp level even a year ago. He brought the team to the playoffs with a bunch of practice squad receivers. Okay fix them number. Three massive organizational investment from jeffrey loria ease. Not as expendable as the coach and sure enough they fired the coach because carson wentz was more of an investment than not only coach peterson but the entire coaching staff. There's so much money invested in wentz. There's so many draft picks invest in once and. maybe he's not even the quarterback. Maybe it's jalen hurts but he's not going anywhere. I'm still on that hill. I'm not hearing from all the people that says de traded. They hired a new coach. Indianapolis looks like they're bringing indianapolis to him instead of sending him to indianapolis carson wednesdays other quarterbacks look at people have to a- leaving the dolphins took him with a fifth pick in the draft. Going anywhere people have. Sam darnold leaving. It just took a couple of years before third pick in the draft. You know these this idea that teams give up so easily on these players. It doesn't happen and people look at precedent where players got out. I i mean teams that never trade him i mean. People are pointing to percy harvard. Is that really the best example of this. I mean that was years ago when a receiver. I don't know what people have in mind you know. There's this rush to judgment their spanish who football. It's everyone fantasy football gm. They're playing madden. They're doing photoshop. New teams real. Football doesn't happen this way. And so that's my point with all these moves in. The business of sports is not the way it seems. So that's those are my rants about. What's going on with primarily the quarterbacks right now with erin with shawn watson and with carson wentz and then of course these other ones one guy is gonna mentioned him at stafford. I'm told that the detroit. Lions when they interviewed coaches they coaches were told they're moving on from matthew stafford. This is not news. And i get it. This is totally understandable. Stafford's been there long time. He's a he's also Football was the last bonus baby him in san bradford before they changed the rookie. Cab stafford's gonna make a lot of money. Going forward in. His career already has made a lot of money still got. He's got an elite arm. And i think quarterbacks on arm position no matter what you say. So he'll have a market and i get it with stafford is so much saying. Hey we had a nice run and you're starting over in detroit. I'm moving on. Let's do it and he'll have a market you know whether it's pick a team washington new england indianapolis yes. Matthew stafford will be on a new team. I'm saying the others won't not air. Not sean wildest jones can be tough one. But that's what i'm saying. Not once not to not darnold. Who else. I don't know But everyone saying all this quarterback movement. I'm not sure there will be so. That's my point on the business of football in the business of sports podcast this week. Okay i also have a newsletter out. Now i want you to sign up.

Thirteenth on PC Xbox One and PS four preorder now to receive the gold weapon skins pack at borderlands dot com. eagles are at the podium ended his franchise quarterback day here on bleeding green nation brought to you, of course, by the fine folks at SP nation. I'm your host Michael kissed. While a me on Twitter at Michael cast NFL. That's K ISD. And of course, follow on my work at bleeding green nation dot com. If you're not following yet, smashed the follow button for the BGN radio Twitter account, that's at BGN underscore radio that will help you. Stay updated on new shows dropping in your feed, and also plans for upcoming shows as I listened to at the top. Today's show is going to be about Carson Wentz. But I there is an update on the Malcolm Jenkins situation as we enter mandatory minicamps. He has reported to the novacare complex for mandatory minicamp. That's great news. And on Monday afternoon, he spoke with six ABC's Sherry Williams saying, quote. I'm really excited to be back with the team contract. Situations are always a part of the business that need to be addressed the next few days. I'm going to focus solely on football and helping my team win championship on quote Williams also tweeted out earlier today, an update on the contract situation with Jenkins saying, quote source with direct knowledge tells me, Malcolm Jenkins will be at mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. This is, of course before the other news broke no changes to current deal. But talks ongoing with eagles and heading in a direction that now has him committed to attend on quote, so that is also encouraging news. We'll have more on the Malcolm Jenkins situation as it unfolds, but I don't think you'll find many voices arguing against paying Malcolm, Jenkins here at BGN considering what he means to this team from talent and a leadership perspective, moving onto the main focus of the show, which is Carson Wentz talking with the media for the first time since his big pay day. We discuss Carson's for your one hundred twenty eight million dollar contract extension last week on. Kissed and Solex show. Ninety eight also we got some thoughts from Beal g on BG on radio episode fifty eight. This is what Bill G had to say about the extension and Carson Wentz is a guy who you've seen his upside. I mean, this is what it comes down to for me. Ten the eagles be in position to win the Super Bowl. Carson Wentz the answer. Yes. Like we've seen it literally thought it happened. Now are someone's didn't finish the job himself. I get it. And he needs to prove he can do that. But we know for a fact that parson winds can play well enough to where he puts the eagles in very good position to be able to win the Super Bowl and that has been goal. So we know that we know the upside is there. We also know his character. This isn't a guy who's going to go out and get in trouble or do something stupid. And even though they're the yes, there were the locker room concerns and that something on Carson Wentz admitted to his credit. And I think even you look at so you look at that you look at his willingness to kind of work on himself not only as a person in that regard. But also. For him to go into this year, exchanging his diet in changing some of his routines, like that socio to me, like this is a guy that is willing to work on things. And I think that's why the lowest drafted this guy he goes in draft Carson Wentz in trade up for him at number two because they thought he was perfect. He had no flaws of that player doesn't exist. There's always players that have lost. They saw a guy that had flaws and they said, okay. I know because of this guy's mental makeup in how he's wired. I'm comfortable betting on him to fix those things. And that's what it comes down to. I think ultimately not only with drafting him, but the contract extension here, it's like this is a guy who has some issues, but the upside is worth it. Justifies the risk in that's absolutely how I feel about it. So to me, it's a pretty good bit. So that was Bill G from BGN radio, fifty eight giving his thoughts that show also has a ton of talk about Joe Douglas his move to New York Jets to become their general manager, make sure you check that out and subscribe to bleeding relation. On whichever app, you're using Lee five stars Lieber review. Alright gentlest. Let's get to the reason that you're here with us today. First up is Jeffrey Laurie with his opening statement followed by Carson. They're both at the podium. Let's not wait on any longer. Let's go to that right now. Okay, everybody. Ready? Thanks for coming out today, couldn't be more pleased that Carson's gonna be our quarterback. For many more years goes without saying what we think of Carson started on day one. When we first met in Fargo a long time ago and not that long ago, actually and incredibly impressive from day one and every moment he's been with us at the eagles. Is just reinforced everything we expected and much more from those days. Whether it's leadership poise the desire to be really, really good if if not great. And attention to detail smart. Face of the franchise in so many ways. It's how you draw it up. I said that I think in March, it's how you draw it up. And our goals are, you know, to win really big and to do that. At its best you have a quarterback who wants it really badly. And Carson in every way once it badly. So just really happy here to welcome all of you and congratulate Carson and it's a it's a great day for the eagles. Come on, buddy. All right. Well, first of all, I want to thank the good Lord for this opportunity this blessing. It's pretty surreal, I still kind of sinking a little bit. I wanna make my amazing wife for sporting me, through through the ups and downs and all the rigors of the season brings and really everything that comes with it, one thing, Jeffrey wanna think how we coach Peterson this entire organization for believing in me from the moment they traded up to get me. They saw some special me, and that means a lot, and that same time, I saw something special in this place. I could see the chemistry could see the culture in the makeup from the moment. I came here on my visit before the draft even knew there, there's some different here, new, there's some special in we were able to -ccomplish special just a couple years ago and it's been it's been quite the ride for these couple years. But I'm really excited about what the future brings my teammates make this place amazing. You know it's. Guys come in and out each year. But the culture never changes in the guys are a big reason why we have some special here. So by no means is the work done. We're we're just getting getting started in. We're really excited about this season. But couldn't be more excited to be part of the city. Love everything about the city, the fan bases amazing. You know, it's truly special run out, internet link on Sundays NC those fans in just the passion they bring, you know, I've said it probably sound like broken record up to this point. But I don't think this, this culture of the city could fit me, any better just with the passionate. They bring in how bad they wanna win. And I'm wired the same way. So extremely thrilled to be here for, for quite a while now in just excited for it. Why why agree to a contract extension right now? Yeah. You know it is something we just I think both sides wanted wanted to get done now. I knew this I wanted this to be home for a long time ever since being drafted. It's felt like home. And so some as soon as we found some that was a win win a really fair. Fair opportunity. I jumped at it just because like I said, I wanna I love this place, I love this place. I want to be here for a while. So fill. It was a good time course. And you've mentioned that the past two years having all. Unique challenges. I know you lean on your faith, but who are some of the people behind the scenes, who you've kind of leaned on to get you to this point? Like I mentioned, my wife has been amazing. You know, my parents my, my older. Brother family teammates has been like I said, I have such a amazing group of people in my life, both in the locker room and at home in everywhere else that I can always just lean on. And like you said my faith has always been number one. So the good the bad, the ugly doesn't matter. I was have trust and faith in the Lord. First and foremost. Yeah. Personally understanding that I have heard from a couple of peoples is really complex deal with how it's structured and all this stuff because of the end of the CBI in some other things. How much did you dive into those details there because I know you like to get involved in everything. I mean I knew a little bit here and there didn't really want to bought myself down with a ton of it, obviously still having not as in really focus on that at the time kinda left that to to my agents who do an amazing job. And you know, I really think that you've got this thing dialed in I'm really excited about it, of course, along with this kind of deal comes a lot of pressure. The spotlight's going to be China, even brighter on you. Now. How difficult to interstate that being in how ready or you four of that challenge. Yeah. I mean I I've said this in the past, and when you sign up to play his game you're welcoming that pressure now. That's just part of it. No matter what's happened in the past matter. What's expected of you in the future? There's always that pressure. So for me that's not gonna. Change, how I prepare how it focused how, how go and compete every game. So you just kinda got kinda gotta block it out a little bit and just keep doing what you know how do in. That's just keep you on better every single day in like I said, I'll just the pressure is always gonna be there. So never let it bog me down. Of course, we've heard over the years athletes talked about when they get a contract like this long. Oh, that's good for you that they are that there's a monkey off their packed at the pressure off their back. Do they can focus on the job at hand? Do you see yourself becoming more focused playing quarterback? You know, I never would really say see myself being more focused in the sense of I've, I've come to work and attacked and approached every single day. The same since I first got here. This obviously is just a step along the way. But, but my, my focus everything nothing's going to change. I'm still going to be the same may be the same hardworking guy blue collar guy in. That's never gonna change. So, so some extent. Yeah. Nothing's really gonna change in that regard. And I'm just as hungry as ever Carswell. What do you what do you remember about that? First meeting, North Dakota that you had with the eagles in could you have a vision that you'd be looking at ten years, living in Philadelphia, like when you left that meeting with the team? Yeah. I mean, I, I definitely could see it then, you know, I just felt such a great connection with everybody. That was there. You know, I thought the, the workout in all the meetings, when greats and it was cool to see them come to come to Fargo and get them out of their comfort zone. Maybe a little bit. But is up your happened? You remember is a little different, but yeah, I just I remember me. Meeting them for first time in just felt I felt connection from the jump, and obviously cut months later, we realized that it was meant to be so to interrupt our franchise quarterback. But we do have some bills to pay will be back with more wins at the podium right after this. Hey, I'm Spencer hall. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan nanny. I'm Jason Kirk. And we're the host of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast. It says here in the script to riff on what that means and basically, what I mean. Is it so spoiled every Tuesday, we talk about everything from cooking. Disasters to pro wrestling, too unfashionable pants worn middle school. We also do talk about college football every now and then, like mascot fights announcers, fleeing the early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football, exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free on apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast app. Carson. You know, we've talked about the ups and downs of the first three years. What, what do you look back on as as the low point in high point? Yeah. I mean I don't really want to reflect too much on, on a lot of that in, in the sense of I'm just excited about the future. You know, obviously, there's been a lot of things that have transpired on the last couple years and to get us to this moment, but at the same time we realized we have some special right now, some special for the future here and this team's is looking really good out there, not as excited for many camp. And we got talented group that hopefully, we can do some special again, as a foul up to the question on the timing because I know how much you enjoy talking about specifics, the at, at, at the start of the off season was was this something you envisioned for this all season. And, and did you consider waiting until after this year, perhaps after a full healthy season? I mean there is obviously, you know, just from discussions with my agent. A lot of different ways this thing could went and I kinda just pushed that to them and said, you guys do what you do have a lot of phase a lot of trust in what they do in how they operate. And so obviously, I was in the know and I was wasn't completely out of the loop, but at the same time I didn't wanna get involved just because I wanted to focus on T as in where we're at here as a team. And I think it ended up working out as opposed to. Of course, there's this anything you could have envisioned, you know, in your wildest dreams when you're playing baseball and football back in North Dakota. It's kind of surreal, you know, just the like you said, and growing up in North Dakota. You don't see that a lot just, you know, then getting drafted all of that. And the motions that came with that. And you know now signing this contract today. It's just it's all been such a whirlwind, but it's such a blessing. No. I believe that God put me here for a reason for me in the city for a reason I'm gonna make the most of it. Of course it because the contract is pretty long inlet. You're under contract now for six years, the salary cap will continue to rise quarterbacks will continue to make more and more and more, if you know, three four or five years down the road, your contract is now kind of like below market or could be happy, you know, playing on that I'm happy to be here, having to be in the city, a long-term now you can play the what if game a million different ways and I don't get too caught up in that. You know, we talked through it, we thought through it, you know, one Reese on that was fair, both for, for me and my family, but also for this team this organization for the future. And I don't think I'll have any regrets. I'm really really excited to be here on hopefully do some special for a while. Causing, you know, you you sign a big deal. A lot of is expected of you, but how do you guard against putting too much pressure on yourself? That's a great question than I think, for me, it always just goes back to my face just trust in that, that I'm here for a reason and that, you know, I'm not necessarily playing for anything other than the Lord, I you know, that's always been my punchline my motto audience of one, and I just can't lose sight of that. If I don't lose sight of that. I know I'll be able to handle that pressure. Whatever may look like because my pressure doesn't come from from anybody. But the Lord, I know who says that I am so. Yeah, I mean, I know that might be a cliche answer. But that's all to me. What it what my what my foundation is founded on. Hey, coast this season with this deal, especially given the way the last two years of ended every time you get up limping every time there's any kind of anything physically there's going to be such scrutiny on you. Do you think about that? And, and, you know, is there a you have to guard against maybe, you know, not telling them if you get dinged, a little better, you know, how do you how do you factor in? What's happened the last two years to how you go going forward? I mean, that's all in my opinion. It's all behind me, you know, and I don't like kind of, like answering you don't play the what if game too much and really don't worry about what other people saying might say all that stuff that's gonna just be that's gonna always be there. So, like I said, that's what you sign up for when you play this game the scrutiny the, the pressure, all the different things, and I'll never get caught up in that and. Yeah, you know, I try not to sweat. Carson how, how long a process was getting this contract on. I know you said that, you know, you weren't actively involved in all the tops and everything. But like when did your agents I approach you about the eagles or union goes talk a deal. I'm saying a couple months, something like that. And, you know, I just like I said, I tuned in my agents and got connected and updated. You know as as they felt my needed to in, you know, just kind of kind kinda let that all play out and sort itself out. And obviously got in did you have like a deadline for when you wanted to get this done or posted in did not know I just knew how this is where I wanted to be. And then once we found the common ground that we're all pretty excited about mitt it happen. Carson allowed is made this league about the quarterback coach relationship. How important was it with your relationship with Doug and his ability to trust you and your teammates, as far as factoring into this long-term decision means a lot? You know, anytime an organization is shown this much, faith, and trust in me, it means a lot. And then just all the conversations. I've had coach it means a lot. No, he's, he's always had my back. He's always trusted Mason's moment. I got here, you know, talked about that connection I felt with this organization even before the draft him, primarily in just it's always been such positive relationship with him in the faith in the trust that he's instilled in me goes a long way, and I'm looking forward to continue to build relationship over the years. Carson in not if you had not agreed to do it now. Would. The relationship with eagles factor into that, that you did want to have anything that was contentious. And. Did anything factor in just having not on your mind as you played in a season coming off those two injuries? Confusing question while the reason why he didn't do. I mean when you when you decided that you're gonna sign it, but. Did did you not want to put yourself in a situation where perhaps, you know, you'd have a contentious relationship with the eagles gone? This year. I guess we never really viewed it as contentious. Obviously both sides have always been now. They've want me here. I wanted to be here. So it's been, it was just kind of fine tuning the details, you know, obviously, in finding that common ground that we were both super excited about end. Like I said, I'll let my agents handle all of that in by no means had a deadline had a timeframe, you know, I was just gonna, you know, let it see as it as it unfolded in the, the seemed right for both sides in couldn't be more excited about. You said a couple of times that you, you stayed away from the kind of the details of the negotiation. Why is that? A lot of people would be. I know a lot of guys in lack room are really wanna know every detail of their contracts and, and really involved in that stuff. Yeah. I mean, I guess I four months, I trust my agents a lot. I know they have a lot of experience in quite the track record in doing these things. So I trust them a lot. And obviously, I wasn't Miami's oblivious to what was going on as, as we got closer to the end, obviously, I got more and more of the details to, to ultimately make the final decisions and stuff. But again, I just comes down to trust in those guys and getting us to that right area. And then kind of diving in that point. Thanks, carson. The news came out about seven thirty on Thursday night. How did you spend Thursday night in and weaken thereafter with my wife, my wife celebrating a little bit hanging out the way, the way should be? Thanks guys. Gee.

Weekly Chat With Ross Tucker

"All right so today is a little bit different. It's not just big showtime it's our first and maybe our last i don't know but it's a combo. Andrew brandt big joe ross tucker football podcasts and the business of sports featuring your brand and simulcast basically because and we're gonna do ranch this week and we both have crazy schedules. He's in miami teaching a class. I've got a bunch of games and stuff so we're gonna go a little bit longer than we normally go with andrew and it's going to be the same audio here on the raw soccer football podcast and the businesses sports so this is one of my appearances ever on the businesses sports. And you're pretty pretty cool. I always have at least once a year going to do more than that. Hopefully coming up and i. I know our listeners like that. Greetings ross. From south florida i non angering allowed people listening right now. You've been saying that but if people have listened last three years they know that every second week of january i have been asked to do a class at university of miami law school on sports law kind of a quick immersion class for hours a day. So don't feel too sorry for me. I got four hours a day inside teaching. And i got about three law students business students. I got fifty five year old investment banker in there that just follows me wanted to come to class. So i'm in south florida this week escaping the cold But back when villanova's starts next week to the northeast and facing whatever's up there weatherwise. andrew. I gotta tell you man you look awesome. You look like you've already gotten some sun. You like glowing with the sunlight coming in from your window. You look like you've already worked out. You're gonna go work glorious dude. I'm very jealous. Kinda do you know i love. I love giving back again. Not to get too sappy but everything i do now is trying to give back as i said ross. I'm not going to cure cancer. I'm not going to create a new Irish vaccine. But i can get back away. I know how knowledge experience insights perspective through teaching through talking through podcasting Through tv radio And my writings awesome. Absolutely love it and as usual as you might expect the second week of the off season. There's a lot to get into. And i think we have to start with what happened in philadelphia. Yeah primarily because it seems like you know pretty much everybody involved. You know on sunday andrew. The news came out that doug peterson might not be safe and he was going to have a second meeting with jeffrey. Loria florida. Next thing on monday. Doug peterson out as head. Coach of the philadelphia eagles. Your reaction had a big reaction raw losses. I have some personal interest here knowing all the parties. In bob jeff. Lurie howie roseman. Doug peterson and other people new organization having consulted there many years ago with joe banner. Who's no longer there And then having a personal interest in doug which explain a couple minutes. I have to say even though. I'm a huge fan of doug peterson. I'm not surprised. And this goes back to everything talked to you and everyone else in the world about the last month which is carson wentz is not going anywhere so with carson wentz not going anywhere. The ownership looks at okay. I've got that Which dwarfs i repeat dwarfs the investment in coaching. Not only doug peterson the whole staff is. What twenty million dollars compared to hundreds of millions of dollars into into carson wentz and draft picks leading. Nick foles go and trading. Sam bradford so listen. This is the decision. The business of sports they're not gonna trade carson wentz. So what's the option fix it whether starter backup. They gotta fix them. And i think that ownership determined because of whatever has happened personally emotionally in on the field between coach peterson and carson that. He's not the right guy to fix him. So i think this move is made about fixing carson wentz. I don't even wanna get into whether starts whether backs up. I have said stood on a table. He's not getting traded because of the financial consequences. So they got to fix them and peterson's not gonna. You're right about the rumors. And i think what happened in the meetings was doug was like you know. I'm not a first year head coach. You know trying to get a job. Now i've got gravitas. I've got skins in the game and they're telling me you gotta do this. You got to do that. You gotta fire. You gotta hire not hire this. So i'm thinking doug is like. Yeah i'm out and it wasn't so much i'm it was a firing but we kind of saw it in the weeds Over the last week. I thought it was interesting. Andrew listening to jeffrey loria. The eagles owner talk on monday. He really made it clear that he feels like he has a good understanding of where the franchise is right now and at twenty twenty one he might have used the term transition year and that doug peterson as a coach. That's not your reaction right is to go through a transition year. I don't know if doug peterson would have even survived the transition year. So listen jeffrey. Loria talk and i guess. I would say it made more sense to me that the eagles almost sounds like the eagles philly. They need to go through a little bit of a rebuild and doug peterson either doesn't want to or you know doesn't need to be a part of that. You know the one place you don't wanna be in especially nfl because the cap you don't wanna be bad cap bad team that right. You don't wanna be any of those three things but the combination is bad so you can be bad team young better than bad team old. And they're older teen nc a lotta guys flushed out. Obviously the two receivers. I think everybody thinks they're moving Which whether cut or trade. Which is to sean jackson. Now sean jeffrey and that's a weight of financial weight people get back to this carson wentz and people are like andrew they'll trade winds doesn't matter they'll take the cabinet. Listen they didn't trade alshon jeffery. They didn't cut out jeffrey. Because of exactly the apps it was cheaper to keep him and now they can. So they're going to get rid of some of these older players. And what is it you know. I think it's kind of cliche to say well. That's a transition the probably do better. You're the do better than four wins with a young team. So i think it's all about setting expectations and you're right you know peterson doesn't wanna start over. All coaches like their older players for certain reasons Unlike to bring back security blink. Get lack of a better word towing with andrew. Brandt here on the ross tucker football podcast and business of sports simulcast this week. There's a lot to get into. You know. I never get into politics andrew before the eagles quick story doug peterson i'm a fan. And the reason. I'm a fan and i laughed when people panned the higher couple years ago and thought they should hire ben mcadoo while sudden He's been a great. He was a great teammate. You know the packers just He was the guy. I called every off season after. I struck out signing veteran quarterbacks. Right this is before at drafting aaron rodgers of the l. One two three era. And i would try the usual names. Pick them out. A kerry collins jeff garcia christian and call the agents. And i'd say yeah come on back up breath in they're like we're not backing a bread. You want us to move to green bay wisconsin and one hundred percent certain a certainty. We're not gonna play. We're not gonna play like who wants to go to green bay wisconsin. No they're not gonna play because brett never missed a snap. It was the surest bet in the history of the sport. So i would strike out every year. Ross and then sometime in april. Or may i'd call down to northeast louisiana. I'd say can come back and he'd go. Peterson is now trying to coach. Full-time in shreveport go and andrew. I'm done doug a need you. He said how many guys you call before you called me this year. I'm like i don't know clive. And then he talked his wife kelly and he'd say all right and then literally in three minutes three minutes ross. We negotiated his contract. I give no agent. I'd give him a million dollars million five. I think i in game two million and then a ton of incentives that he and i both knew he never earned right it never. It was the most pleasant simple and easy contract negotiation of my career with the player. Who knew that he was never gonna play but we need him. And the last thing is he was breads. Confidante breads gov partner that both scratch golfers more importantly he was best friend. And i don't wanna drag us out but in that incredible moment. When we're in oakland i get a call from brad's father and his voice is different than i ever heard. He says worst Gotta find him irv died. Earth spreads father. And of course we we can never reach bread. He's i don't think he even had a phone. And what do we do. We call doug we call doug doug's with brett amitav course we now get the. Nfl his wife on the phone. We have a three way through doug to breath to tell him. He lost his dad And then doug came back with. Doug was so key to that day. I get chills thinking about it. So just as doug peterson fired and maybe it'll be hired within the week. Just some thoughts on doug. I'm a big fan. Yeah that's great stuff. Andrew appreciate you. Sharing both of those stories awesome absolutely awesome and i shared. I think on monday show. I guess it was yesterday a story about doug peterson and something. He did for me personally. When i lost my voice or didn't have much of voice for the first preseason game he kind of knew i was struggling so he went along with the with the answer when i was interviewing him before the game and he taken care of he was helped me out so i will always remember that and appreciate it. I want to ask you. I i said this earlier. I never talk politics. I don't care to you. I don't follow it closely enough. Set her up. My question is about the bella check medal of freedom. Thing is that is there. That was a business of sports thing. Andrew in other words like realizing it's not good for the business of bill. Bella jacker the business or the new england patriots if he goes in accepts that award. It's funny say don't talk. I got a tv request yesterday or two days ago. And i don't really turn down tv requests. Because i think it's good for my brand cetera. But i turned it down but here. I am hugging you. Manage my question was. Is there a chance. There's a business with sports element. That's all i'm asking. You know yeah. I think it's good for the brand It's hard because you have to say. Well you know. He is friends and has been a supporter of the president. All these years and is that a hollow move. I don't know But if you're look from the brand right. What's the best decision this week right last week this week. Clearly but if. I'm doing an interrogation into bill belichick. I'm gonna you know not leave it at. Hey hey you turned down that. I'm gonna ask what about your lifelong or just leave it at that. So one of the things. I wanted to get into with you. How about this. Jared year andrew. The guy was on the colts. Practice squad the last two weeks they activate them on game day and he starts ordered saturday's playoff game. I called against the buffalo bills tack indianapolis colts games over now. The packers signed him colts. Practice squad and i think you'll start but maybe he will on saturday against the rams. I mean you wanna talk about a weird loop on. This guy has made a lot of dome been around for a while. It's weird that guys like earlier and devante freeman who the bill signed the practice squad. Yesterday are even practice squad eligible as much as they played as much but for a guy potentially start back to back playoff games for two different teams andrew. Like i don't know if i want to credit his agent. Maybe agent told the coats. Keep him on the practice squad because he wants to keep his options open. Yeah i mean maybe it was part of deal. I think you're right. This is a kogas football and we sort of hatton were now in january so we kinda take these rules for granted now but they're so different. They're so different this up and down on practice squad at the point you made. We have tenure twelve year fifteen year vets on practice what. We've never seen this in the history of sports a history of football but we may see it. you know. i'm already getting questions as i'm sure you are is what would you like to see. Continue from this covid year. That is one the easy transition team practice. Squads and the lack of restrictions on veteran experience in practice squads. That's great and of course i love the i. R. that is short term rather than long term. So anyway these are certain should continue on mazing story and you know ross as well as either you know. He's gonna play the accuracy this week. It's just bound to happen and play a lot probably Yeah and of course you know me and my boys. We have a special interest in that team right now.

Call one eight hundred gamble. Speed guys playing andrew. I don't know how much of the national championship game did you watch their. Did you watch any money. I went to the semi final in dallas. But i didn't go. One in miami watched some of it. Yeah i was. I was sat back and forth it action. There was a wide receiver for alabama. Jalen waddell who was playing. He's supposed to be a top ten top twenty. Pick who had like a major major ankle issue. And i saw you tweet. Something about it at anju brand. She's kinda wanted to get your thoughts because you know. He has some idea of who his agent will be. I just found the whole dynamic interested what he was doing out there. The tweet you mentioned. Was i get it your tough and i get it. You're committed to your teammates. But why Specially when the lead blossomed to twenty points. I didn't understand it. But i know you know. We all have different feelings about sports and team and commitment in those kinds of things as everyone knows i slapped on the business side. There was no business reason for him to be out there. There really wasn't Whatever draft position he has he was not going to improve it by playing hurt. I don't understand but you know again. Put yourself in the shoes of a twenty year old. That is playing his last college game. You want to be out there you know to me is sort of. Look at the coaches and doctors to write. Who's making that call. If you're the team doctor do you let him play. When he's limping around out there. So i i you know. I think you've gotta look at the adults in the room. Players wanna play porcelain. Wanna play. And i don't know what is agents people are saying. Well his agent when he hires. Him's not going to be. I'm sure he's got an agent not officially before the game. But i'm sure he has had discussions and no one would have advised him to play so that's interesting Reminds me twenty years ago back in the day. Ross when represented ricky williams he played in the hula bowl. Not not the the all star in hawaii. Yeah and uh. You shouldn't do this and he did. He really wanted to So it had no. It wasn't going to help him so that that happened. The texans i feel like our weekly conversation andrew. They originally were not going to interview eric enemy. Who evidently shawn watson has a preference for now. They were the only team. That hadn't put in for eric the enemy interview now. They put in for it but they can't interviewing for a couple of weeks because past the window where you could do that initial interview. Let me just say this about the texans. Because this is the you know the media. I'm part of it. You're part of it. But i'm seeing all these photoshop's last weekend of deshaun watson as a bear as a jet as as a dolphin wait a minute. Let's just put the brakes on the story after the beyond what you said. He's not going anywhere. Shawn watson is not going anywhere now yet set and yes. They didn't interview. They didn't console him. They didn't consult their own consulting of search firm. They're doing things kind road. But oh my god. They're not trading and he can't treat himself. We talked about the winds. Hit of thirty four million. This would be even more and then of course. Why would you do that. Why would you built your franchise. And i don't want i know people out there saying well he's gonna make himself a distraction and banning on it be there january. Okay you don't even report till may so this will be fine sean. Watson's not going anywhere but you have to question what they're doing and so now we know. The texans are not hiring coach till after the super bowl. Assuming make it all there but that seems to be at odds with getting a good staff these days and that's the natural friction with the hiring process. What did you think about andre johnson. The only texans player in the ring of honor coming out and telling shawn watson. Stand your ground. Nothing positives happened since easterby guy got there. I don't know if there's a similar example in green bay but how problematic is that or is that just another one where it will go away eventually. I think you have to look at it. It'll go away. But obviously that's that's a player with gravitas and be like if i'm green bay and you know reggie white said something like that or brett farve after he left. Yeah that's a concern but at the end of the day right you expect that from former players right you would be more surprised if andrew johnson said a. Sean stick it out. You'll be fine management's good right you be much more surprise so players take players views. I get it But there's a guy with grabbing tussaud. The texans like these past two discussions we just had they have some work to do and i think we all go back to what the name he said. This easter be. I don't know what's going on but he's got to be more upfront right. He's gotta be he's gotta face the music on what's going on. Why didn't you use the search firm. Why didn't he talk to sean. What's going on with the search You'd like to hear more from a we heard from the owner. But i think we need to hear from the decision maker there. Well we need to hear from you. Andrew every single week Whether it's on the stock football podcast or the business of sports or just following you on twitter at andrew brandt so we can read your columns it first sports illustrated etcetera etcetera.

At the Podium: Practice Squad Analysis & Howie Speaks

"This episode is brought to you by cox with contour t._v. From cox you can find all your favorites all in one place it. Does it have the youtube you bet ah what about that netflix thing net flicks too and although superhero movies contour has all the latest titles on demand. Oh my grandkids love that big in green guy. I prefer the one with the hammer myself okay. I think we're done now. Get all your favorite apps shows and movies right on contour contour t._v. From cox the eagles are at the podium and practice squad day here at leading green nation. This is brought to you of course by espy nation. I am your host host. Michael kissed and today we had a presser from howie roseman who spoke with the media on saturday after roster cut downs to give his two cents and answer questions from reporters as the eagles moved from a ninety man roster to fifty three man roster so that's going to be in the second part of this show here. I thought as promised on b._g._n. Radio seventy eight which was the roster reaction show with me and brandon lee gotten. I've got updates on the various moves that the eagles have made today here on sunday including filling filling out their practice squad. I think the most interesting one is the addition of giants quarterback kyle a letter to the practice squad instead of clayton thorson around five rookie from northwestern who struggled all can't and all of preseason. We're going to talk about this one more on the q._b. Sco show this week which is also going to be a preview preview of the matchup with washington quarterback case keenum but i'll give it quick teaser on that as headed into day three of the two thousand eighteen n._f._l. Draft mark scofield wrote this about about the richmond spider kyle aleta quote coming out of the senior bowl aleta was talk at the quarterback position almost every draft related conversation but questions about out his arm strength linger even after his velocity numbers at the combine were perhaps a better than expected for him. Yes he lacks an elite arm and does not have the pure velocity of other passers in this class but he makes up for that deficiency with his quick processing speed and his ability to make anticipation throws plus when you remember that most offenses function in the shorter areas of the field lalla can run an n._f._l. Offense unquote so i was there with scofield in mobile alabama to watch letter and i was similarly impressed arrest in fact i remember him in i along with benjamin solarmax sitting at practice and talking him as he went through some red zone drills and not saying that we thought he was special but he handled himself yeah well and showed us that he had the tools to at least stick around the league for a bit and be a backup option down the line with the right development track now he gets to continue that development in philadelphia so if it was a choice between him and clayton thorson i would've always gone letter and honesty several other quarterbacks that were available and i think i've been i'm pretty consistent in that regard with that. Take so while the eagles made an objectively bad pick they cut bait didn't fall into the sunk cost fallacy and brought brought in a quarterback. I personally like better and ultimately it's essentially the queue before spot indie fifth round. Pick which you know while you love to hit on those the success rate on those fifth round selections is are so low that really it's not that serious as all the criticism being flown around including by yours truly i was very critical of the beg at the time and then moving on from that but moving onto other the practice squad moves and all of this up at pleading green nation dot com running back boston scott remains with the team wide receiver marcus green which i'm going to be honest honest. I have zero idea who he was but what i found was that he was a sixth round selection from louisiana monroe five eight one ninety one small dude. He took kick and punt return duties for the atlanta falcons in the preseason. Here's a reason why he was caught to muffed punt out of seven so that's not great and only one reception for eight yards in the preseason so there's not a lot to go off of there. I mean i just looked through a couple of draft guides and i couldn't find him so he's relatively unknown. Just about everywhere be be interested to see what he can bring to the team other additions to the practice squad include offensive guard suwa opeta linebacker and special teams darling alex singleton chooses chooses to stick with the eagles instead of going back to the cfl tight and alex ellis who is impressive as a receiver but nissan approve as a blocker sticks. We talked about him on alaska's and solex. Oh speaking of titans josh perkins is in fact a back and as expected wide receiver greg ward junior has cleared waivers and sticks on the practice squad after an impressive camp in preseason and lastly from what's been announced defensive tackle. Bruce hector is staying in philadelphia. Now that's nine players and the eagles have ten dan spots and there are reports that the eagles are bringing in waived cornerback from the vikings craig james who was active for only three games last year didn't record any stats. What's the eagles. Don't have a defensive back on the practice squad right now. The only kept five corner so it makes sense that james will complete it and be the tenth touching on where some other eagles went went windows snitch would excuse me smallwood goes to washington on their fifty. Three man roster have fun with that washington. Clayton thorson is a cowboy practice squad. Yeah i would really have a hard time deciding between him and mike white mike white had a disastrous offseason process and preseason. Josh adams the running back. The eagles leading running back last here is a new york jet so a reunion with joe douglas there but just on the practice squad offensive lineman brett toth was claimed by the arizona cardinals so so it's the end of a very short era there. I'm sure there's more that i missed or this yet to be announced. Of course we'll have you covered here as we learn more and also bleeding green nation dot com. Tom will have news on every single roster moved at the eagles.

Thank you guys for coming on tonight. I know it's a beautiful day great weekend and you guys got to be away from families for appreciate at the time when there with you you know i want to start off by thanking the entire organization. Training camp is a huge process process for this organization putting together here novacare complex and a lot of people working lots of hours and <hes> on the business side on the football side and so that that whole process just wanna start by thanking everyone for taking part in that and take time same token today's tough day for us as an organization. We have a lot a lot of players that have done a lot of good things. Every single person who was on that roster week pick we chose and so having those conversations they are hard <hes> we obviously wish them the best of luck but at the same time want to thank them for all their contributions so <hes> with that question is yeah dave for us we look at the roster as a sixty three man roster and so <hes> six we look at the sixty sixty three men and how many numbers that we're going to keep their and how many on the forty six so <hes> just because we have to fifty three dozen million that will end up having to practice or wound up having to kind of only go play. We'll see what happens here in the next day or so impressive sober. What else could they've done. You know i it's interesting because you go through the whole off season and your whole goals to collect as much talent as you possibly. Can you know you want to build build a team. You want to find the right guys and then this week you really start trying to figure out roles and responsibilities and trying to to build a team and trying to find find the right fit so the guy's having the right roles right responsibilities having the right culture creating the rights sort of environment so that guys can thrive in greystone tremendous job and <hes> really i. I don't have an answer what he could to damore other than were trying to balance everyone we have at every position and what we're looking for offensively defensively on on special teams and sometimes it just comes down to looking for a specific role from that specific spot and you know when we look at at the wide receiver room and what we're looking for and what greg had done on special teams and maybe what we're looking for from that fifth receiver respond on special teams. It was just not something that he had done so. You're right great cranach medicine starting wine feel so comfortable with that group of guys while i think when you look at it you know you look at our starting group and we're really excited about our starting group and then <hes> you talk about someone like big v who <hes> it shows tremendous ability not only attack away starting left tackle in the super bowl but now comes in and plays plays guard and chose his value there and does a tremendous job for us there in our first round pick is not starting for us and <hes> now he guy that we have a lot out of confidence in and then you look at the backups that we have after that and they all versatility <hes> you really can go one by one and we're excited about. Is we have a good mix of veteran players on the offensive line and also youth that we think really can develop and developing good players that you'll try to add a tight end not just for the fifty. I remember after but the well we'll see you know i think when you look at it again a lot of things come into the equation and we think that we have versatility <music> on roster on offensive roster guys who can do certain roles and <hes> also you know what we're looking for specific to not only offense but also special teams zimbabwe types on special teams in certain positions on special teams so <hes> we will definitely add another tight end to the sixty three man roster when we look at that but we'll see how the week goes and what's available to us five drought hit on as take again. How do you look back now on the clinton <unk> cleaning forces so i think that <hes> for us when we made the decision to sign josh obviously that put clinton in a tough spot and <hes> we look we look back at the situation that we've been in the last couple years and that quarterback room and just how josh would fit in with carson sometimes we forget carson twenty six years old navy not young player and <hes> having that veteran in there with those guys and you see the chemistry developing already in <hes> real excited about the quarterback room and same token can <hes> obviously than you like oh fifth round pick but you know about that we look at it. Necessarily you know you'll see today. They're gonna be a lot of draft picks cut in in rounds that are higher than fifth round and lower than the fifth round we gotta do what's best for our football team and and build our team the way we see fit and so <hes> <hes> the same time you know things even out we added to undrafted free agents and i'm really excited about those guys too so <hes> you know i think for us. We gotta figure out what's the best. We're not gonna just keep guys on the team because we drop them around. Look at the <hes> bring back to the guys who like over here two rushers in order to comment on the decision to leave josh <unk> players good players and you're talking about you know are leaning russia and a guy who played for us in the super bowl and so <hes> those are hard conversations to have and i think it's just a testament to what we have in our room right now really excited about that. Jordan todd a tremendous offseason and you see his vision <hes> his instincts is power and then in your miles realized come on gandhara back and just what he can do obviously in the passing game as a return or his veteran leadership and then we talk about complementary complimentary roles in each room having complementary roles in and corey really he compiled off for downs and and he's a heck of a special teams player and he looks one hundred percent so we like mike how all those guys play off each other. We get the shorter term. Injuries are guys who are gonna be out for a couple of weeks but not long-term correct complicate things for you well. It's a good thing that they're short term where we're excited about that and it's a testament to our training staff and and really when you look at it are are soft tissue injuries were down dramatically this year during training camp and <hes> he knows so we're excited that those guys are gonna hit an opportunity to come back so it does complicate in terms of just how we're trying to sort everything out and at the same time <unk> are australia's set for now four o'clock but we're constantly looking to evolve and get better and continue to look for areas that we can improve and <hes> as we get some of those guys back. We'll have to make some decisions now. We're you can get into any trade talks with any teams in any specifics but <hes> i would say this <hes> anyone who is valuable <hes> at any level whether on the waiver wire whether they're available by trade i promise we look into edwards and john alex <hes> <unk>. Allergies seem to trying to go back and forth <unk> what kind of separated p._j. That's a good question you know. Both guys had really good camps and i think the day that was a tough call for us and <hes>. I think that they have a little bit different. Different skill sets you know <hes> they play a little bit different spots in our defense really for us at the end of the day <hes> we kind of went back and forth on it and decided to go with t._j. And <hes> house ousted really good job in a are pro scouts is a lot of credit for the guys they brought in from cfl that that was a good group that they brought in five safety. You know i think that when you look at those guys that group as a whole and you talk about i obviously you know malcolm in the kind of player is and then getting rodney back and how big that is <hes> then you look a- sunday ho and just really since he walked in this building. You know sometimes you get guys. Is there even different than you thought you know. Sometimes i'm bad way sometimes in good ways until you kind of them you know and he's been really one of the the big surprises houses for us through the hall whole off season and really training camp and just the kind of player he is <hes> hype presents himself everyday how he works how he studies his athleticism awesome so <hes> for for us with him and the things that he can do for the defense it's been exciting and <hes> and then bring in sip and you know we talked about out here with just about transitioning and transitioning from collecting talent to having roles and responsibilities and for sip you know this is a different role for him. He's he we started every game that he's played and he was hurt last year and <hes> now in that four safety role. We need something different from him. We need him to be <hes> really a leader on on special teams and and really good on special teams and we've had that conversation with him and team braces it <hes> he wants to win and so <hes> that's kind of where you have sips role and we know you can come in and plan defensive. We need that and then rudy ford you know rudy for us was one of those guys special teams who just jumped off the tape in he can fill specific roles <hes> <hes> you know we gotta get them right and we will and then when he comes back. I think that our fans will see why we liked him. On special teams i mean he had some speed and he can play some role roles that we're really looking through for the off season so we're excited back in look at the fifty. Three names looks on the word. Which is the third the team as a whole. I think we have a lot of talent and <hes> the question is how come together as football team. You know we started here era and <hes> we had an opportunity to talk to the team the first day of training camp and <hes> we talked about that there was town in this room but we need to come together as a team and <hes> that comes through experiences through the course of the season that comes from dealing with adversity through the course of the season. We think that we have the right character and right leadership on this team on the coaching staff on the field to do that but now we gotta go show that the other yeah. I think that you know that's that's one that probably we. We have a different opinion than maybe he's been popularly reported you know we look at that defensive and group and i know coach schwartz's talked a lot about how exciting is about derek barnett and and <hes> how dare we think is a really good football player. You're gonna get an opportunity here to start and you know we all know about brandon graham and brenda graham what he can add vinnie vinnie vinnie looks better than two years ago. You know vinnie vinnie. He's a guy that really is comeback with a renewed focus renewed energy <hes> his leadership his energy on the practice. It's been great and then works by our young group. You know <hes> if you said <hes> you were you were scouting and you're looking around and saying what young defense van the best preseason. I don't know that there's a better young defensive end in football day. Sean hall this preseason. He deserves a tremendous amount of credit. <hes> he went and he worked on his body in the offseason he came back thirty pounds heavier and they proved on the field and <hes> josh wet had a really good camp and <hes> we expect him to be able to contribute be two fourth round pick and sharieff reflected in the games and you can see athleticism and he has tools in his body and at the same time you know we have to understand too. We have to develop players persson's <hes> you know we're talking about our roster and we have a lot of guys who are good players and make good money and we got better on young players. We've got a better scouting scouting got a better coaching and <hes> we're taking <unk> along joe dr <unk> departure and iwata victim over hours <hes> ever had heavy rain in major changes in the way the call joe douglas on the phone instead of going next door his office so that's a big transition <hes> <hes> you know it. It was really fun seeing joe in new york and <hes> we miss him. Mike we miss a lot of people who who've left here but excited for him and his opportunity there and you know and deserves credit for stepping into that role and really <hes> having seamless process and <hes> he's he's. His scout has done a great job then <hes> the building together as a whole. You know this this bill right building. We have a lot of good people in this building and there's not a day that goes by that i walk in and that <hes> someone someone doesn't make me laugh usually for the right reasons and <hes> we have fun but we also work hard and i think that's tone is really sad but jeffrey ing coach peterson and <hes> you know. We just try to uphold that chemistry. Both your early on the first three guys in the draft must have doing good. They're worried contributor. Yeah i mean <hes> really excited about those three guys. <hes> is funny. When i saw joel on the field said <hes> <unk> our first three thanks don don really getting because our first three picks are pictures kind of confused by the question <hes> but andre andre as a tremendous has a chance to be a tremendous player and and he's got great work ethic and <hes> you know he he continues to work on anything that are perceived weaknesses. He's got great feet <hes> he's really <hes> into it and he's got maybe the best left of all time to learn from so <hes> that's really exciting and for him again to be able to sit there and develop and learn and and <hes> you know he he's above probably where we thought he'd be at this time which is really exciting. Miles you know miles has a chance to to really contribute to this football team this year and he he's got great combination of feet empower. I think the one of the things that you know maybe it's hard to realize till he see z. Miles and pads is how much power he plays with him and he he does not he's not afraid of lowering shoulder and really he's got some thome and so <hes> he's he's a guy that's gonna get an opportunity to player and contribute right away and i think that's exciting and then you know i think for j. j. go out and have that third preseason season game and you see kinda. The skill set that we looked at <hes> tremendous hands n._f._l. Body knows how to play big and again what what a great opportunity for him to learn from one of the best big body receivers in the national football league now sean so you know we're excited but <hes> you know preseason is one thing now the lights come come on in and those guys will have an opportunity to prove it to the course of the regular season. You only kept the four tackles <unk> second you only question the limit on the i like that you're keeping track <hes> <unk> legitimate n._f._l. Player in trayvon <hes> go into games with four defensive tackles. It's not active <unk> sort of vote of confidence that you think council be good to go wild yes. I think that that would be fair trying to think of something something funnier but i didn't have anything <hes> you know. I think that <hes> when you you talk about trayvon <hes> you're right trayvon's a an n._f._l. N._f._l. caliber player career and that was a hard cut and you know again. I think that when you do this you try to to build a ninety man roster and you try to build ninety man roster. That's really competitive. Given that has ninety guys again opportune to play in the national football league it all sounds good until you get to this point and then you have to actually cut guys who have a chance of getting claimed and losing them and then you don't feel so good but <hes> you know i think we were just trying to look at the skill sets that we had a defensive end defensive tackle and try to mix and match them and have a nice complimentary skill set in so you know assan and <hes> trayvon are two different players you know they they just they're both good players but they <hes> they have different skill sets and our other defense tackles have different skill sets and we have some defensive ends who can reduce inside if we need that and we went a little heavy at defensive pensive end but these are not easy decisions and now i think we struggled with a lotta these because of the type of players people that we had to thank you.

Hour 2: Justin time

"It wasn't a field day for the buckeyes yesterday. Going down to the crimson tide. Fifty two twenty four alabama's defense although state quarterback justin fieldstone to our hundred passing yards in a first half for the first time since coming to ohio state looking now at todd mcshay latest mock draft a quarterback trevor lawrence. No surprise number. One mcshea has justin feels as the third quarterback to go behind. Byu's wilson but ahead of mack jones. Who has the fifth quarterback picked stephen a. where should fields. nfl stock fee right now on the heels of the championship game last night. I think right now. We have trevor lawrence at number one and then i think it's a crap shoot in terms of Justice field with. Zack wilson and mack jones. I think when we look at it from that perspective we have to look at them and we have to wonder about justin fields. Now let's let's be clear. He was not one hundred percent last night that hit from scerzusky in the college football playoff. Got him ejected targeting on justin fields. We all understand justin field not one hundred percent. We all understand that we saw last year. That what did you do the previous year. Forty one touchdowns. I think it was forty one touchdowns three interceptions. We get all of that and he played in fourteen games this year. Obviously would things up in the air because covert and what have you You know only played eight games. Had twenty one to twenty two touchdowns. Six interceptions game against indiana. He wasn't that impressive. Game against northwestern he wasn't deemed that impressive. You have critics looking at it right now questioning to some degree as accuracy again. I haven't seen much of justin field. I know that he's a stud. After i know that he can move to change. I know that he can make things happen. At one point. In time i remember being on this show and asking those college football aficionados. How close is it between him. And trevor lawrence and re religiously. They all said. It wasn't even close. Trevor lawrence on another level compared to this guy even though he clearly outplayed. Trevor lawrence. That college football playoff matchup against clemson ultimately what it comes down to is this on the nfl level. We're looking at the lamar jackson's of the world and stuff like that and you gotta ask yourself a question. If you're kind of suspect run with the football. But you're an electrifying. Athlete electrifying wheels. That would be one thing. I haven't seen the second coming of lamar jackson. I haven't seen anybody at the quarterback position echo run the football the way that brought to run the football even though you got cats that can move. They've got some wheels on them now. We got to get to the throwing. And how good is it going to be. How taller you see over opposing defensive lineman coming your way offensive linemen and a tall blocking for us at vision. That kind of stuff comes into play. I just think right now when we're looking at justin field. If you know how. Max you know. How mel kiper and todd mcshay and others as thorough as they are. You can pick apart a game. Two games three games and say hey. We saw this. And that's a red flag for us. It remains to be seen what what is out on the field right now but i think the fact that it's a question more we can't definitively say after last night max that you're gonna look at justin fields and automatically say he will be the second quarterback taking and this upcoming nfl draft. We can't do it and that's where it is right now with. Everyone has a very short memory. Justin fields that should be the second quarterback taken by the way where is draft stock. Right now i mean. There was a point earlier in the season. Stephen as you alluded to it where it was like a short trevor. Lawrence is better than got fields. He's had a few uneven performances justin fields. He hasn't been perfect but the fact is what a short memory clemson wasn't playing yesterday. Clemson one plank. Justin fields threw six touchdown passes against them. Four hundred total yards again a game that he had to be at his best he was. He played the best game of his career. Now you mean to tell me because you can't beat alabama which who some people are saying today and they may be right. This version of the alabama team may be the greatest college football team ever. And because you didn't win that game all the sudden like you may not be the second quarterback take. Let's look at what justin fields. What does he does he have size. Check can't have an arm check and make all the throws strong arm is the accurate yes. He's a very accurate passer. Actually with excellent touchy as arm talent. Kenny move is he mobile check. He can run. What doesn't justin fields do. No quarterback is perfect at this stage. People complained and i understand. Why about the internal clock in terms of how to deal with the blitz and all that stuff. that's a lot of young quarterbacks. And even we talk about that. Even older quarterbacks i understand because brady's not mobile but it's like in boxing stephen when when they say go to the potty. This guy doesn't like it in the body. No one likes it in the body of course pressure on a quarterback is tough for any quarterback particularly young was. I'm not claiming just in fields is perfect and by the way against clemson and that came into this game the hip pointer problem the dudes and a lot of pain. He threw those six touchdowns and produce over four hundred yards of offense in a rout against one of the major powers of college football to get to the championship game. He did that hurt. Any continued to play hurt in this game and made no excuses to me. stephen a. it is very clear. I get why trevor lawrence goes i to me. Justin field should be the next guy off the board over the next three years at ohio. State he's completed. I'm sorry this first georgia years ago completed six nine percent of his passes last completed. Sixty seven percents dishes. Seventy percent of his passes. I get what you're saying max. I don't necessarily disagree. I'm just talking about folks cover college football who watch it far more extensively the meal and look at the three interceptions. He threw against indiana the two interceptions. He threw against north and passed over like one hundred and fourteen yards. And that's they're going to use that because they say you have a short sample size. You know what this is. What counts this is what you measured by. And here's how you perform so they're going to look at those things. It's not to say that he's not a scrub where he's not even a first round. Pick what we're saying is. Is that when you look at justin fields. Do we went from comparing him to trevor lawrence and saying are we sure. Trevor lawrence is number one just for brief second before everybody's said hell. Yes he is but we asked that question about him compared to trevor lawrence to him. Not even being in the conversation to all of a sudden. Zack wilson and the matt jones elevating their stopped so much so they he went from a surefire number two being projected as the number three quarterback taken. Those kind of things can't be ignored. Somebody's holding something against them in might not be mad. It might not be stephen but somebody is holding something against justin field because his stock has not elevated. it's dissipated albeit to a small degree in some people's eyes is still going in the wrong direction. We can't ignore that in. nfl draft. Coming up. max. We just can't. Yeah well he has had some uneven performances that is true and there are some kind of like you know pocket awareness issues that some people like. He's not perfect. No one's perfect. I get it like trevor lawrence checks. The most boxes comes the closest to it. He's going i a guy like andrew luck was coming out of the draft. But it's not like luck was the greatest quarterback since that draft very good others who've been better and i would just say about justin fields that a lot of this stuff like take a guy like shawn watson right. There were legitimate concerns by some out of college football in an evaluator saying oh about what about the intermediate passing game and this and that but most people who watch the shawn watson. We're like come on. Come on this guy looks pretty good. And that's what i'm saying about justin field steven people who know how to evaluate better than me may have reservations and i even understand some of them. I watched justin feels on my come on. This guy's not going to be good. I i right i. He looks good to me. i think he's going to be very said about Gee three senate about sam donaldson degree about others saying. We don't know justin fields a college career. Qbr of ninety one point seven is the second highest ever in the history of the metric. Only behind one to do you own or rent your home. Sure you and. I bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy. Bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com quote and see how much you could save. Its geico easy visit. Geico dot com today. That's geico dot com. Stephen is been ribbon. The dallas defense all year long. We'll now they have hired former falcons head coach. Dan quinn the defensive coordinator on a three year deal taking over for the fired. Mike nolan after defense. Had one of the worst seasons in cowboys history. Now stephen a. i know quinn's tenure in atlanta didn't work out so well but let's not forget who was with seattle when they were that formidable defense legion right. His bread and butter do. Quinn is a good higher for the cowboys at dc. I doubt it. I mean listen. I'm not the one to call about supportive. Words for for dan quinn only from this spectrum as the head. Coach presided over. One of the dumbest play that i have seen in the modern football era. Where an onside kick is is is aimed at the atlanta falcons and they treated it like it was a point. I mean they literally. I mean not not one not two not to six different guys. That did that did not rule six different guys just an absolute abject embarrassment and they lost that particular game forty two thirty nine after being up about fourteen points or less than five minutes of the game. It's just an atrocious atrocious situation. Having said all of that if you're the dallas cowboys this nearly not much way to go but up to twenty wearing defense overall. You were second to last against the run. We know that they gave up. Thirty nine to the falcon. Thirty eight to seattle seahawks forty nine to the cleveland browns. Thirty four to the hapless new york giants offense by the way thirty eight to arizona. That was five straight. Weeks did five straight weeks in the national football league. Okay which started to at four. They ultimately ended up giving up another forty one in the washington. Football tea on thanksgiving forty one thanksgiving okay. Well they gave for thirty four next week. The baltimore now gave up thirty. Three to san francisco forty niners. They were so when you look at it from listen. There's no way to go but up. Dan quinn certainly know something about football. There's some people that aren't meant to be head coaches you know. But i'm not going to sit up there and knock him for being coordinated. He's got a good reputation as a coordinator. He's no mike nolan who had thirty first ranked defense in atlanta and twenty four. T couldn't get a job ever a sense until mike mccarthy grabbed it from the scrap heap. Dan quinn dan. Quinn knows football dan. Quinn had a stellar reputation as a defensive coordinator and if he ends up in dallas. I have no problem with it. I'm just saying that that was the location of one of the dumbest plays in. Nfl history and he was the head. Coach de presided off of that but in the end i can't knock it. I just think there's a black cat running around and no matter who goes there. They go to dallas to get their reputation. Smith no matter how good they look elsewhere when they come to dallas. They never looked better. I think it's a good higher. I think it's a good higher and let me just say that. He was the defensive coordinator for the legion of boom. He won a super bowl and wet to another super bowl and did a very good job. Now he had name brand guys on that defense who were indeed star players not just in name star players kam chancellor and richard sherman. And those guys. earl. Thomas were studs right. Who does he have right now in dallas. Well actually dallas has name brand guys. The problem is they haven't played that way in the last year or two. When you look at leighton vander esch. Jalen smith stephen. It wasn't that long ago. I thought that's the best linebacker tanned. Talent wise maybe in the league no they're not demarcus. Lawrence is a name brand guy who's had some excellent nfl seasons but they weren't performing up to snuff. This year is that because they suddenly lost their talent or is that because of the defense itself the defensive coordinator and also the defense clearly lacks depth. Do they need to focus on that. I think that quin has a history of getting the most out of talent. So whatever is there on dallas. I think you'll get the most out of also then quinn's reputation as a head coach. Now look i get it. The atlanta offense was high flying until they don't have the same offense coordinator and then not so much. Yeah i get that but he went from defensive coordinator of the dominant unit in in the nfl. That went to two super bowls and won one to head coach of the dominant offense in the nfl. That went to a super bowl and yes. They had a spectacular collapse in order to lose. But that's what it took for them to lose. Were in another super bowl dan. Quinn has a track record of success in fact and too often. I think we've focused on where he came up short but look at his track record has been very successful. I think he's a good higher for the cowboys in just like that. The tide are champs yet again after dismantling ohio state last night on. Espn and abc. Down there in miami here to break it down for us. They won in only paul finebaum. Pol it's been a good minute. Always get to see you my friend. Happy new year to you and yours. We're going to jump right into it here. Fellow guys crimson tide receiver devante smith put on an absolute show last night. Twelve receptions two hundred fifteen receiving three. Td's winning offensive mvp less than a week. After taking home the heisman. Now todd mcshay. Mock draft has the jets letting smith slide to miami with a third peg despite jeter accordingly second fewest reception yards in the nfl. This season stephen. I'll start with you here. Do you think it would be wise for the jets to go wide receiver and take devante smith number two overall. I just feel that way. I do i really do i. I you know for me personally. sue al. I mean the wh what you're hearing about him. Out of oregon. That's a different ballgame. Because obviously you know you're looking at offensive linemen and you got to protect the quarterback. I totally. I certainly understand that they can and i would defer to max paul finebaum any college football aficionado out there. That says that. I i i can understand that. But i'm just thinking about the ultra weapon. That devante smith is how much better he can make. Sam donald look because of what the jets have been devoid of and to me. I don't mind the idea of him. Being number two overall understanding might be foolhardy. Because it can't protect your quarterback. What does it matter. But i'm like hell do what you gotta do. Go out there and find some better level of protection for him to things for me. Is that in all likelihood. We might not know how bad the jets offense was because since nobody was getting open. Sam donna probably have to hold onto the ball all day long and ultimately you know put himself in the position will ultimately they were going to get at him because nobody can get open. That's how bereft of talent the new york jets word this season as far as i'm concerned and i think that you need some talent to indicate what you have available to you so i'm just thinking but i understand how people might feel different. Devante smith is great and he had a great game last night in the jets should absolutely not take him second overall. I ball teams that draft. Wideouts that high. Don't win super bowls and there's a reason for that because you can get wideouts much lower in the draft look at the best offenses just like in the afc. Who's the best receiver on the chiefs. Tyreek heels fifth round pick. Who's the best receiver on the bills defined digs fifth round. Pick in the nfc. Who's the best. I'm i'm talking about the most likely teams to win or to come out of the conference. Who's the best receiver on green bay. Davante adams second round pick Why is the shawn watson. Trade one of the reasons the andre hopkins there anymore. Deandre hopkins late first round. Pick the point is you can get great receivers later in the draft. Calvin johnson was taken second overall and lived up to the hype and played in two playoffs games. And that's because teams drafting that high usually because they stink. they need a lot more than just a receiver. So for example the jets need multiple offensive linemen multiple linebackers and maybe a quarterback. We don't know yet. But maybe a quarterback. And i actually suspect. They do need a quarterback but darnold's very young. You could argue if you give them weapons and protection. He'd be better. Okay okay fine. I think justin feels but okay. Someone may argue otherwise you could tree down and fill multiple needs. Or if you can't treat down you can take a commodity that's harder to come by. You know it's harder to come by in the second third and fourth rounds great defensive players defense event a quarterback whose shutdown those guys usually aren't around later on a lot of times a great offensive linemen especially left tackle. Those guys a lot of times aren't around later on in the draft. So if it's the miami dolphins who were drafting third because it's part of a plan with they stockpile draft talent and they're a good team. Take the monty smith. Of course of course you do. But if you're the new york jets and you're drafting second overall because you flat out stink everywhere you look. Don't take a out since. I don't live in new york. I'm not as emotional as max's about this guys. But i will take devante swing because i don't remember ever seeing anything quite like him stephen a year and i've been talking about alabama football for many many years but he has blossomed under the scene. I say that knowing like you do that because you were there. Because he won the national championship three years ago with a walk off as a freshman he is. He's a unique talent. he's he's a he's a generational talent. So i think you do have to take a gamble on that and quit playing. The percentages which jets have been doing seemingly forever. And that's why they're the worst franchise in in well the second worst franchise in the nfl. Well here's what hit for his. What made me laugh about. Max's tape and it's it's not laughable in terms of his content it's laughable when max brought up work if you go with a super bowl the jets the jets max kellerman when you born remind the world mac take a reasonable maximum. Me remind our audience. When were you born max. Nineteen seventy-three and when was the last time the jets were in a super bowl. Little one one. What year was that. Nineteen sixty nine so all the jets fan. Not only where you not on this earth. You were not even couldn't see the last time they want to be super bowl and and yet somehow you're sitting here. Having a compensation would get to the playoffs. How about right. that's what i'm saying. Even we know that. And not only that. Max is the metlife stadium. I know new jersey is the new jersey near swamps. What is close enough to new york. City came we give broadway in the folks that brought about. I mean i understand that offensive. Line you worry smith. What can we give them. Somebody somebody to look forward to watch it other than some big boy just over block. And what can we do something. Let me say this. Let me say this is a giants fan. I love the fact that the giants have saquon. Barkley 'cause a lot of sports is is your is your emotional reaction your emotional response. I get to watch saquon barkley when he's healthy and root for him because he's on the team that i root for right like that's a great joy of being a sports fan but stephen. It was a mistake to take a running back. Second even guy can catch passes and everything. You can get great running backs later. It was arresting. Take time to t. J. watt or walk sometimes a guy like second overall. Yes ezekiel elliott was a mistake at his position in the draft. They were drafted too high. Because you can get great running backs later on even later in the first round. And it's hard to get like mccaffrey was taken up high. Not top five and he's outperformed everybody dalvin. Cook are guys who are not taking the top three who are great and even later on in later rounds chop in these guys right so i'm just saying when you see. Tj goes late in the first cameron jordan late in the first that kind of guy but normally the difference makers on defense the corners. Those guys go way high up and you. If you're building a team you better grab one of those guys or you'll never have okay. I'll the furniture thirty you paul. Yeah right ended this conversation five minutes ago steven at you and i right works for me. Yeah you did. Paul my goodness paul. I miss our talks at the coffee station in. The seaport is the last receiver to be taken within the first who picks of the draft calvin johnson. And i think i was still in college at that point so it was a while ago. Do you soon thank you for being with us. Well he was on the lions. I mean come on Tough times we'll keep moving here guys. And i want to get to the news out of philadelphia with the eagles so the eagles have fired head. Coach doug peterson yesterday after five seasons where he led his team to two division titles and phillies super bowl win. Peterson's firing significantly increases the chances of quarterback carson wentz staying in philadelphia source. Told our jeremy fowler on that. No we are going to bring in. Swag oh marcus spears. Where is he. He is marquez. This as your you are you looking swaggie. Look all everything about to get the cage. I'm john jones or somebody looking at big boy. I'm trying to build some muscle. I'm i'm sick of being fake Lead to build muscle. I need to lean out. So i do have a listen based on what you just said. I hadn't very bad news for you very bad day. No way inhale you'll get away with that. Ain't gonna part of you and you expect any happen. I was thinking when i was boys all mistake. Dig more muscle own all right. Molly grow active to thank you. Thank you thank you. Listen marcus professional athlete is wife. He's got this. He's got this under control right sons about to be a superstar to we already know your daughter's like number one volleyball knows why we will stay. Focused jumped on the loose wife got alarming day. They both got on. The daime lost his mind when he picked up. I his let it go. Because i know you're going to do. Would you wanna do please ever sway your hips like that again. I just can handle that. Oh my goodness marcus. this time. Last year we were down there in. Lsu you're celebrating all that in new orleans different deal right now. stephen a. Let's go back to the eagles. Firing peterson much more serious note. Do you even think this was the right decision. Do i don't believe the problem in philadelphia. Listen listen. i'm not going to absolve him. They went four eleven. And you can't absolve the head coach or something like that happens molly and we get all of that but i mean damn you gotta remember molly. I worked for the philadelphia inquirer seventeen years okay. I'll mom's college beat writer and then the nba writer and you know all in general college general sports columnist and all of that other stuff. Seventeen years i was there and they never wanna championship and they had been to. The super bowl hadn't been to the super bowl until they got their jacksonville. Two thousand four nine thousand nine hundred and they never won a super bowl championship in the franchise's history. We are three years removed from this mayor. Delivered the super bowl championship and this and by the way they had been to the playoffs previous three years and then all of a sudden thinks collapsed this year. And he's out. I just feel like it's something that rubs me the wrong way about this cost and wentz was awful howie roseman these to be held accountable for we get all of that even though i would give him and him. And and doug peterson a chance to come back and make amends. They were awful but for dough peterson to be the lone do. That's bill that receives a pink slip. I just got a problem with that right now. I mean listen. It's philadelphia and philadelphia was starving for super bowl championship for folks entire lives. And after for the first time in a franchise history. He delivers the super bowl championship in three years later. He's out of a job at. There's something about that. Disrupts me the wrong way. I don't think that was the right decision. I think it was more about costing wince of and i'm not saying that peterson deserves to be absolved. I'm not saying any of them. Deserve to be devoid of being held accountable but they have earned the right to come back and make amends for a one year debacle. And i think they should have been granted that they weren't as giants fan. I wish they were. I hope they bring them all back and keep them as long as possible. Great that'd be great for me as a giants fan. I have no problem with peterson. Getting the pink slip. My problem is howie roseman. didn't also get one. i understand. it's hard to move carson wentz's atrocious contract but when you want to look at the common denominator of the problems it's carson wentz. Who did peterson. That super bowl with winston plan. Any playoff games none zero. That was nick foles and the following year would that value title defense. It was nick foles. Who took over the team. They were five and six caught. Fire made the playoffs went on the road. to soldier. Field beat the bears to a lot of people like to get out of the nfc that year and then went to drew. Brees is house and came one. Alshon jeffery drop away from getting to the nfc championship game. I mean if you're going to defend your title that's how you do it. All nick foles matter of fact even last year looking out josh mccown a one legged forty year old quarterback. How did he perform in the playoffs. They lost to seattle by these same exact score that they've lost to seattle in week. Twelve with carson wentz's the quarterback and jalen hurts how the eagles looked since jalen hurts took over. They look good. Peterson knows what he's doing with quarterbacks there's one guy who's resisted. There's one guy who's willfully wanted to do it his way. We've talked about that on this show a lot and that's carson wentz. That's the common denominator. Look at the immovable contract who gave him that contract. That's how we roseman the same guy who can't draft five years half a decade since he's drafted a pro bowler who's wentz by the way half the decade since he's drafted a pro bowl arcega whiteside over decay. Metcalf rager over over justin jefferson and they have cap issues. The cap is a mess. So how was roseman still there. If peterson gets the pink slip. Peterson's gotta go because he never asserted himself when he could add. Even what i've heard is he was still fighting to try to fix carson wentz. But maybe that's because you know you're married to the guy you can't get rid of them. No one wants that stinking contract for that reason. Roseman had to go along with peterson. Peterson shouldn't be the only guy fired. No he shouldn't have been fired and is because number one. I gotta tell. Both the i play for the cowboys and like stephen reminds me between two thousand five in two thousand and thirteen played. The three head coaches in dallas went to the playoffs twice and that was way phillips. These dudes don't go grow on trees. Doug peterson didn't all of sudden become a bad coach. I he didn't all of a sudden. Forget how to get a team. Ready to play and get them to perform at a high level. I want anybody to show me a team with a quarterback plan as bad as carson wentz. That one a lot of gains. Somebody's showed me one in the history of the league. And then you look at all of the things that transpired. They had thirteen different. Sal pal was all early. He came on our show yesterday. Thirteen different combinations on off. Its of land. Mike mccarthy just got a pass because of all their attrition and the cove it and all of these things and you tell me the philadelphia eagles fired. Doug peterson after what stephen just say brought a super bowl put a statue of him and nick. Foles out there. Last year took them to the playoffs with a team. That was beat up as well and this year. Everything came to a head with this record because your quarterback couldn't play like that's the honest truth now. Here's what i will say. I said doug peterson after after the washington game. I said the only way doug peterson should be fired is if he lost the locker room. If a lot of these guys are returning. Don't have faith that they're coach is going to put them in the best possible situation to win gains and you could argue that. I wasn't mad about the decision to play Fail in the in the game against the washington football team because it didn't matter anyway. The peterson give a damn about helping the giants on the cowboys. Or anybody else. But the point being is you have to overall conversations transparent ken. Doug peterson coach. Yes you answer a question did doug. Peterson have success in philly. Yes does super bowl coaches get a pass. Yes mike the damn head coach in dallas right now because of the super bowl in green bay. Nobody else was kicking the door. Down to hire mike. Mccarthy peterson the find yourself a job pretty soon. I'm sure the other part. In the caveat that that is the reason why the peterson fire number one to makes his point and makes you been right on this all they appease to carson wentz doug. Peterson is because of course of wins. That's the reason he got fired. And the other one. I don't notice i'm not in the inner workings of this franchise. If he lost the locker room. I'm talking about guys. let's go have to come back and play very important parts for this team. Then you have to move on. If it's all either you move on from the coach or you get rid of those who listen to the message. Marcus he wasn't allowed to pick his own staff. Even though i think because he knows there's no way to move carson wentz. I got fix them. He wanted press taylor to be promoted to get the offensive coordinator job. He wouldn't do it right. So so if you're a super bowl winning head coach and then the next year you have a follow up like that. That's the time to assert yourself jeffrey. Lurie wouldn't let it happen. Laurie roseman wh- wouldn't let it happen and now he's starting he decides now. I'm going to assert myself. Now i'm gonna sit insist on press taylor too late. Not after the way this season wet you are right. He's he's proven himself. An excellent coach peterson. And very good for quarterbacks you are right. he'll get another head coaching job. That's different than saying he shouldn't be fired. This is no. This can't work anymore. He's gotta go so does roseman. I think your argument. I just have a problem with in the same breath that you saying. He's excellent you recognize the fact that he's a super bowl championship. But you don't wanna give him an opportunity to make amends for something a problem that he contributed to think about what we're saying here the if even if we stomach max and completely accept the fact that you're absolutely right in terms of your of the ability. You want to attach to doug peterson. Let's let's take into account. Was walking. speeders head coaches. Do not grow on trees if you're going out of your mouth. He is excellent. If i'm the philadelphia eagles franchise and three years ago. This man brought the super bowl. Chevy nothing is ago not twenty years ago three years ago. This man just bought a super bowl championship to our squad with a backup quarterback. I i just think you can look at him and go like this. Okay listen you need to come back and make up for what happened to you stephen. He deserves that opportunity. Dukes beyond the super bowl. I would agree if could succeed. They won't let them beyond the super bowl. He just took a beat up team to the playoffs last year. We not talking about a coach. That is that you have to question if he can get a team to play hard and at times he knows what level you have to question if he knows what he's doing nobody's but i can. I can report this. And i know we hate to do this because you gotta fall in once but if a coach loses the locker room then you really have no choice other than trying to repair this situation but this was all about and i got. This was all about the general manager choosing carson wentz. I gotta like that. That is the that is the underlying factor here it the generate own rose carson. Wentz knows the general mills. Joan tend to the general manager sided with that decision. Because that was that that is what would save is job. That is what was say you you. Here's the owner. Jeffrey lurie and steven from time in philly very well. I'm sure jeffrey lurie has gone through this before. And he's considered this great owner. But i think he spent a lot of that capital just now. He's cited. The eagles went six ten. There's a fractured locker room. Mcnabb t o. He sided with quarterback. Now that was the right thing to do. It was the greatest quarterback in the history of the franchise in his prime you side with quarterback but it did divide the locker room now. He's done it again with wets and he did it. Not with the greatest quarterback in franchise history put a guy who's tearing the team down and he's created a difficult situation for his head coach to the point guys that i don't think peterson would've been set up to succeed no matter what in philadelphia. My point is. He's the fall guy for wentz right now our roseman the them should be gone. I was just. I was just about to say know is is funny and we understand it because we heard all these reports coming out of philly. But it's it's funny that he he had an. Mvp underdog. peterson. Doug peterson is under all this heat and a quarterback doug does speak for him. That tells you who. Jeffrey lurie chose. If carson wentz with the walked into that office and say hey. I won't coach peterson back. We get this thing right. I've seen us have success with them. I've had success with him. This whole situation would be different. But this became about the coach and the quarterback. Until you're point lurch the quarterback side with both of. Y'all have me a little bit confused. You'll have me a little bit confused. Because i don't understand i wanna make sure i want clarity. So on one hand. We're saying the and i'm not questioning the validity of any of y'all sources. What we're saying is that how we roseman chose cost wins. Right howie. roseman chose cost wins. We're also saying mexico's you know. Obviously swag validated that. The team didn't get picked dopita's coaching staff so doug peterson doesn't the particpate this coaching staff. Doug peterson doesn't necessarily have faith in costs and went howie roseman did carson wentz looks absolutely awful and then the dog peterson's the fall guy. I will say this to you. Listen one of the. Jeffrey loria that i know if if doug peterson doesn't get to pitch it. Pick his coaching staff. And doug peterson. Is it the god that that vouched for carts and wins a right. Doug peterson ain't out of a job or at least he ain't the only one out of a job especially when you bring into account the fact that the locker room could potentially be against them if the locker room against doug peterson if we know that he didn't have this power if we know that he'd be involved with carson wentz. You think they don't know so he doesn't have the pow- it locker room. Something is awry. it can't be all of those things. Don't have the support of the locker room because those main markets biz with go like this. That ain't him. You didn't give them the power to pick the staff. He knew something was wrong with carson. Wentz you made him keep costing with they would stand up for. Doug peterson under those conditions. Y'all steve they understand which issue number one go ahead. Marcus real quick. I believe the justification for the firing is the rapport with the locker room. I don't think doug peterson should have been fired based on his resume and what he's shown us the ability to do. And when i say locker room that really speaks to the quarterback we all have lamented about carson wentz's power and we talked about his attitude towards the end of the season. Not being addressed. The bottom line is this. The eagles chose carson wentz over. Doug peterson and i'm pissed about it. Because doug peterson is the one that facilitated all of the things that needed to be done in order for the philadelphia eagles to win a super bowl. Carson winch fell off this year. That wasn't the doing of doug peterson. extenuating circumstances. doug. Peterson took a while. Now to make the change to jalen hurts in spite of trying to say i mean in trying to save carson wentz and see if he could get it back on track. Nobody went to bat. Let let me coach. And that's my issue. Stephen understand why does like a lack of clarity. Because these things are nuance. But let's start with geoffrey lurie. If the owner chooses to quarterback everyone's in a bad position and it sets a bad culture period a bad culture now whence felt empowered whence according to what i hear changed a lot of peterson's plays continually right and we saw that week in and week out naps why. I was sounding the alarm in the middle of last season. 'cause you could see it in the middle of season. So and so steadily eroded winstons play and also the team's chemistry howie roseman. You're absolutely right to point out. Like what's going on with roseman roseman. Just lacking accountability. Right now why are you still there. Yes he did. Put together super bowl team. But stephen a howie. Roseman hasn't grafted a pro bowler and forever. Handed carson wentz that enormous contract turned around drafted a quarterback second overall because he could see the direction it was going and he still there. Peterson came the fall guy. He was owners not going to be the fall guy in this case. It's not you. The quarterback has apparently alive of the owner. And the coaches gone. All i'm saying is the jeffrey lorry that i know would not let how roseman off the hook. He might make the same decision about the head coach. But he wouldn't let howie roseman off the hook. Not the way how. Joe ben accountable all those years joke cabana did a damn good job when he was the eagles football operations so it strikes me as a tad bit odd that howie roseman is still standing. If all the information that y'all say it shows the quarterback stephen moore tolosa so repairs carson wentz one in the short game but this is a long game so we'll see how this all plays out guys. We only got a couple of minutes. Max i'll just get right to it. Do think the colts should go. After carson wentz. No i mean if i were the eagles i would target the colts because of rice and all that and they've had success together but if i were the colts would i want carson wentz problems. No i would avoid it. i would. Philip rivers is done. I mean listen. I he had a decent year. They got to the playoffs. They lost the first round. Nobody was even expect that for philip rivers. So we'll give him props. He's been around a long time he's incredibly immobile he ain't scrambling two yards. We understand what he is it. What is not and when you look at india indianapolis offensive line their running game and some of those dudes they got it. The receive spot led by t y hilton. I'm sorry if i could go and get carson wentz particularly since coached him up. Three years ago. When i was in philadelphia frank right i would do it. I'm going to be petty. Because i like doing that on this show sometimes and wishful thinking. If i'm there bliss coach all capital would go to houston to get the show and watching and to show come back in up the texan. They own division. I know i'm petty. I know is wishful thinking. But if. I'm the indianapolis colts. I'm making a play at shawn watson wins. I watch it winter and even in the chart no no Boffin petty marcus spears thanks for moonlighting with us. We'll see you on. Nfl live a little later. Like shirt to max stephen a. i c. You always buy.

At the Podium: Brave New "QB Factory"

"Hey there podcast pals. I'm John Stolnis. The host of the PHILLIES pod hidden season. One of the shows that make up the good fight podcast family from espy nation. Look the baseball. Season is one hundred and sixty two games long. And there's no way you can watch all those games so make sure to check out my podcast twice a week for all the fills goodness. You could ever want and make sure to check out our other podcasts including the award winning dirty inning with Justin clue and Trevor strunk and continued success with Justin and Laze Rozier. Subscribe on Apple podcasts. Or your favorite podcast APP. The Eagles are at the podium when they weren't supposed to be because they pick the quarterback at fifty third overall admit Philadelphia media's about to have a field day. I'm your host Michael Kissed and in this wonderful at the podium addition. We are going to air. The impromptu press conference with Howie Roseman. Doug Peterson and Andy Ytl. After the Eagles selected Oklahoma quarterback Jalen hurts with their fifty third overall selection which did not go over well with the fan base as you would expect. We have our instant reaction show up on the fear at Bijon were shameless. Clancy and I on instagram. Live or obviously shocked. There are more shows coming to try to explain this. I even had mark Scofield of the qb Scotia. Join me for a moment on. I G live so if you're into that kind of thing checkout at bleeding green insta- and before we kick it to how in company an interesting article was sent to me by Luke Stanfield at Luke. Underscore stands on twitter. That could provide some clarity on the thought process. I guess and I do want to make it clear. I not justifying the pick by citing this but press Taylor had this to say back in June of two thousand nineteen this is an article from Ruben. Frank of NBC. Sports Press said this quote I do at some point. One of the big things is having multiple people on the field who can throw the ball. I think that something you'll see going forward. You've seen kind of this billy special. All the different versions of double passes things like that. I think at some point something like that. I could see coming into play end quote so either. The Eagles are on the cutting edge with the next philosophical shift in football or they just been a very high pick on an idea that will never see the light of day. This is a pick by an organization that feels like they're the smartest in the room. Nobody has ideas like the Philadelphia. Eagles right they sell their own crap and they think it's roses. It's got to the point where there's so much smarter than everybody else that they have to hold an impromptu press conference to man's splaine their thought process Carson Wentz at just taking this team over and now they're introducing this into his world would fascinating to me so we're going to have more thoughts on this tomorrow. But I wanted to throw this up now so you could hear for yourself if you missed it what Howie Roseman had to say so. Let's kick it over to that chat right now as we go inside the QB factory a guys. Thanks for taking the time and originally. We said we would do this after our last pick but obviously with this past year we wanted to get to you and be available to answer questions. When coach Peterson came. We sat down in two thousand sixteen We said we are always going to be about the quarterback position that is most important position in sports. And we're very fortunate to get a young pro bowl quarterback Carson Wentz in our goal is to surround him with as many people as we possibly can as many good players as we possibly can and so for us in this pick When we sat and we talked about it as a smaller group and we looked at where we were on the board. And what was the thing that we believe in the most and more of the kind of people that we believe in the most Jalen stood out in those regards and we think he will isn't incredible teammate. He's got a lot to learn here. Obviously you know we've shown how we feel about arson by our actions. We showed it by the amount of picks we put into and we should show to buy the contract extension and we believe is the guy to lead us to our next championship but for better or worse. We are quarterback developers. We WanNA be quarterbacks actor. We have the right people in place to do that on. No team in the national. Football League has benefited more from developing quarterbacks than Philadelphia Eagles and so we just When we make these kind of decisions we always go to our principles and who we are and what we believe in an right or wrong. This is who we are and earlier. Today I spoke to arson about the options. This and one of them was Jalen so he had a heads up ahead of time. And you know we're sitting here at the end of the second round of this is not true in the first round pick. This is the end of the second round and I think you know when we looked at it. The difference between taking at the end of the Second Round. And maybe in the middle third round with where we felt like this was the right thing to do. And the right thing to do based on our believes. We'll start with Tim McManus John. Mon a how you guys have You know made a lot of efforts to have a comfortable environment for Carson and make sure that you know you're throwing your full support about around him. Why risk the fact that you know they could lead to certainly is going to be conversation but potential controversy and kind of create that potential dynamic? Around around him We obviously we looked at this from all angles and we didn't think this was much different than when we nick foles in the amount of money. We gave Nick Foles as a backup quarterback in two thousand seventeen and then bringing him back in two thousand Eighteen Amorim Nick. Because you know jalen teammate. You know he he obviously had to take it back seats to Alabama for a little bit and we're in a situation here where we brought at-at fell back in nate's been very clear that he wants an opportunity to lead a team and so we kind of looked at the future of our football team and said you know we keep getting in this situation and we keep putting resources and to get a guy in here that can be in the system and learn and grow You know that to us it's worth its weight in gold that position that room. We want good people in it now. Room we WANNA be strong room that we know what kind of person this guy is. We kinda support. He'll throw behind starter and again. You know that's just. That's our hardest in our priorities. Are that ends up. Most point that quarterback position John mcmullen and Anzac Berman. Hey for how he and Doug I guess because we talked about a lot about the evolution of offensive football in how the game is changing. Tatum HELL IN NEW ORLEANS. Even I think John. Harbaugh talked about putting two quarterbacks on the field at one time you see a unique skill set that will let you open up the offense in any way your John. I think I think this player. Obviously Jalen Jalen hurts him. He has a unique skill. Set in You know you see what a tastes hill has done in New Orleans. And now he drew brees have really Have have a connection there at bond there in the evening We know when when flacco in Ilar in Baltimore for the short period of time how they have a GEL together You know it's just something we're GONNA explore. I WANNA make a point here First and foremost the Jalen hurts is good quarterback in you know he was. He was drafted as a quarterback quarterback I but he has a unique skill. Set that He's a great runner. Obviously he throws well on the run he he's got a unique set of skills that we're gonNA take a look at as we keep developing this This off season you know advancement So to speak as we get ready for training Zach and then Davidson girl. How following up on your opening statement about the value of the back. You said this is not a first round pick but you go into a draft with the second round pick with the expectation that player becomes a starter under his rookie contract. And was this a picky? Were not willing to sacrifice intrigue negotiations last night. Yeah I think when you talk about it again. You know. There's no team. That's more value from the quarterback positions than the Philadelphia Eagles and You know we talked about it. And obviously you know that's that's a factor our histories a factor and that's the most warm positions sports. And so we talk about that that pick and you know the trade discussions and You know when we had the trade discussion Scotch and gesture. Those are on a separate note. Those were in situation there where teams Allot to go up and you know we like Jalen Rigor Jalen. Maria was a guy that we are excited about. Jalen regular is a guy that has his skillset. We're looking for and we are streaming excited. We think January is going to be a very good player of our offense. An explosive player. He's got the ability to get the ball on his hands in different ways. You Know I. I don't know that we were able to accurately convey our enthusiasm because it was a little bit. The communication was a little bit hard last night. But let's be clear on Jalen regular like Jalen. Raider is acquire that we are extremely excited about a guy that really fits what we WANNA do. Offensively really complements the skills on our team in. We didn't select elementary for any reason other than we think. He can. Make a difference on our offense football team. He fits the skill set of our starting quarterback. He fits the skill set of our team. He is a guy that is hard to find the National Football. League's act so I don't think I was adamant enough shape because I was a little bit thrown off by the communications. I was Kinda talking to myself. I heard it come back and our guys have done an amazing job throughout this process Obviously not on that so I start with that you know. We felt like we had an opportunity to get a player who can make a huge difference. And we look at this fake as somebody who is really a a tremendous wire and person. And that's what the drafts about draft isn't Abou- you know. Just doing whatever's best for team in the short term draft is about making long-term smart decisions for your organization based on the priorities that you believe is key to warning football games and you know. We want a lot of football games around here. The last three years and I feel very confident that the decisions we make our service well for the short term and the long term and there are other ways frostad players have a lot more picks coming here and not only today but tomorrow opportunities in free agency to continue to improve our football team and that is what we will do baseball truly. It is awful. I'm phillies writer. Justin clue join me every week. Along with John Stolnis Liz Rozier and Dr Trevor Strunk as we discuss all the ways the phillies of hurt us on our podcast hidden season as well as historical anecdotes and rar emotional ramblings on our other shows continued success and the dirty inning subscribed to the good fight and you'll get conversations with insiders analysis of breaking news and stat stat stats together. We'll survive whatever baseball can throw at US Dave and unless bone with the team. That's made the playoffs in the last years. It seems like you have a chance to do that again. And make a run. Why prioritize drafting a quarterback who theoretically won't play very much instead of a player who would make an impact this season in the next couple seasons. Dave I think I was clear that we think that this is the most important position in sports and We felt like this was a proven winner. Guy Who is incredible teammate? He's GonNa strengthen that quarterback room. There's no doubt we have a Pro Bowl twenty-seven-year-old quarterback. We've seen the value of quarterbacks on our football team we've seen the value of other teams. I mean you guys mentioned some of the guys being used in different roles And the fact that you can give and the weapons that this gives to our offense or play caller. Who's a an unbelievable play? Caller has unbelievably great in mind. And so I. I think that if you're just looking at it from that perspective as kind of instead of the way we're looking at it is this gives us another weapon you know. This gives us another weapon in that role. This gives us another incredible teammate. Is gives us somebody that is going to be incredibly supportive quarterback and you know quite frankly? I. This is exciting. This is exciting. This is exciting for our quarterback. This exciting our football team. And this is the kind of decisions that we're GonNa make you know and we're proud of it. Okay less than Jeff mclain. You mentioned Nick foles a minute ago. I think we all know that. That wasn't a a long term situation. That could be comfortable and that was why Nick Foles Was Allowed to go elsewhere. It seems like you're kind of setting up the same situation again with a highly regarded quarterback coming in and every incomplete pass that Carson wentz throws will be. Be Looking at jalen hurts. Why do you want to do that while I don't agree with that? I think that Carson's phenomenal player. And we think Carson's phenomenal player. And you know nobody's going to be looking at a rookie quarterback as somebody who's going to be taken over a pro bowl quarterback guy who's been on the cusp of winning an MVP. But at the end of the day I'm going to go back to who we are what we believe in. We believe in quarterback position. We believe like this guy that when we saw our board and we looked over. The guys that We thought we could pick a display at this point narrower. There were Donna Different Direction. And and we just felt like you know we are stewards of the organization. Our job to make sure that the organization is strong at positions. We believe in. That's fine line We put resources into both those. Physicians will continue to positions of resources those positions and quarterback positions and You know again. And we'll continue to weapons around our starting quarterback are starting quarterback We felt like when we got off this call and we met as a small group this direction. We wanted to go and we felt like this was the right move the Philadelphia Eagles unfo- Go Jeff and then Mike careful I get Doug this questions I you then. I guess anti for for the Scouting Doug did any of your coaches workout hurts in individually. Yes so press Taylor before you know before the pandemic hit and before we were were locked out of our facility there novacare press had a chance to go to Oklahoma to the pro day and visit. Watch watch him. Throw watching move around obviously to combine. I felt like he had a really good workout there at the combine But West Taylor did have a chance to Sit with him in Indianapolis. And then then again go arkham throw in in a handy Woman Joan I guys radar and and would you think of them at the senior bowl. So I wasn't not play this year. I want so Oklahoma. Play a West Virginia at home in Norman in I got to see him. Play live and it stood out with his strength is ability to throw in. Ron and make plays I disarmed. He's part of the new guard the mobile quarterbacks in the league I can win throwing it or running it. In just uncanny toughness poise in his competitiveness. Natural leader that led to Major College Football Programs Conference Championships in playoff. Went in playoff. Gains historic record speaks for itself He's just very poised in the pocket. He's an excellent runner. He can throw on the move. Just he's he's started on the big stage and others but sometimes it's a really stood out with him back in. Eighteen comes off the bench Alabama to to help them win the SEC championship versus Georgia is shared. It would play for Oklahoma said Baylor and he brings them back in the game. You know all those things he's done on the big stage he's been a guy he hasn't flinched. And I think the senior bowl it a good week down there and an excellent performance at the communist all his workout at Indianapolis. So we're excited. He's got high level Tangible 's in I think he fits is is gonNA add or culture time for a couple more so do Garafolo Mike K. And then she'll how you mentioned sub fell at the beginning of May Have Misheard you. He's still in the plans to be a part of things going forward here at least in the short term. Yes Okay I. I couldn't understand what you leave on having a strong room. I mean I think we've talked about it a lot and I think we're we're feeling like it was getting away from us a little bit. Nate's very clear that he wants an opportunity to go start somewhere and so we felt like you know a year from now. We will be following resources at this position. We wanted to get out in front of it. A low bid and make sure that that room was a really strong room The player matter you know we're sitting here and We just felt like this player. Like Andy described He's got a lot of traits that we're looking forward to develop. We're not telling you that. He's he's ready right now but we have the right. Resources are disposal on the right time for him to get comfortable on to learn from one of the best players in the league. And I don't know if this is better for you or doug or Andy or whatever but some of the things that I've read as he didn't have to make a whole lot of reads Atlanta's scrimmage or or a complex. Nfl typed read. Is that the areas where he's going to have to come along and work on a little bit with any any young ortner learning learning this game learning our game. It is a complex. He's GonNa see more defensive schemes using the complexity of of coverages as something that he'll learn he's very capable of learning had a great conversation with his with his coach. Lincoln Riley and You know the communication that they had in the things that they do. At the line of scrimmage and it is a different world coming from college to the NFL. But he's very capable he understands. Aw He's smart. He's sharp. He can articulate. And you know there's going to be a learning curve. Obviously of just picking up our system at terminology especially now with not having up potentially having an off season. So you know we have to do our best job as coaches to get all our quarterbacks Caught up and especially him now with learning new new offense as to Mike and then she'll how you mentioned changing a little bit. There hasn't been a lot of trades in the first or second round. Did Ulcer your way of thinking towards his pick maybe trading or trading down And was this the the plan going in kind of within the last ten or was it just kind of a plan this all day you said you talk Carson about it. Yeah we had a list of guys that we felt very comfortable about At fifty three we knew what happens every time at the start of the second round as you make this list of guys and everyone's got the same list at the start of the second round and they go off we're joke and you know we're making this listen and we understand they're going to go off and we'll start the second round because In the first round grades guys go. And so we had a list of guys that we're gonNA target and we got to pick forty five We kind of got together and made are less than Talk about guys that we consider moving forward is there are more guys that we consider moving back and When we looked at it we kind of looked at our list and where we were fell like The next year of guys may be consideration for next to him. We have four picks in the next forty three picks after we pick neck so We got a long way to go and we really got makes him. Hey with those four x Russia. Hey Howie up all these guys you kind of look at the upside and what they could bring over the course of their rookie contract. I think question with Jalen. His what is sort of best case scenario here with him over the next four years given that you do have Carson and you just ate him. He's obviously you starting quarterback. I heard the end very clearly. She'll I'm sorry the first Friday I heard about the four years. Carson clearly are starting quarterback. I didn't hear the first part. Yeah just just. What's the what's the best case scenario when you look at this and how the roster's constructed in given that if everything goes out you want with Carson staying healthy? It's tough to envision a scenario where you know jail making an impact in four years. So how'd you kind of balanced out with this? Yeah I think when we look at the upside that this player is and the players can learn from in that room with Natan Carson this year and the coaching staff. That we have you know. Think He. He's more valuable than the pig we took him. And we think we're the league is going When he gets experiencing coaching is going to be a valuable player. That for us that that's their job is to acquire as many assets as we can and Utilize them and also utilize to get more value. And so that's really. What what the drafts about it's about value it's about foreign players That we think have high value and really when you look at the quarterback position. There's nothing that has more value and You Know Anne said this and I thought it was great line I mean. We've been the biggest beneficiaries in national politics over the last twenty years about doing about about You know again quarterbacks. Getting them to play at a high level and then having the opportunity to Also get value for them. So know I think when you talk about what the ideal situation is you know. That's that's obviously winning super bowls with our starting quarterback Getting this get up to speed Shown what kind of talent that we think he has. And that's a that's a great situation Philadelphia Eagles and that's certainly worth more than the We took out right now. Thank thank you everybody. Hey there podcast Powell's I'm John Stolnis.
