Golf: First impressions of Pebble Beach setup for U.S. Open 2019
"Course, the U S Open at Pebble Beach and to talk more about this. We go out to California and out to the progressive insurance, hotline, and bring on Geoff Shackelford senior writer for golf, we contributor, of course to the Gulf channel as well. And what's the feeling I'm jealous? You're at Pebble Beach heading into round one tomorrow. I was at the PGA championship Bethpage just a little bit different scenery than what you're experiencing there at pebble. Yeah. All everything's very jovial here. What's for a US open is not usually the case. Dan Jenkins, you know, tirelessly said the USO grumpy of vents in it, even when you come that will be to put the people usually in a foul mood. But I think the. Combination we had amazing weather, the guys all had great weather to give ready. And today was cool and foggy more normal, but the golf course and set up. Well, it's an unbelievable shape. It's just such a spectacular place. Everything is just sort of a line for a great week, and has been so to see everybody kind of mellow and happy. And it's great. And then, you know after Bethpage the what the have the only concern be fog delay really it changes. Everybody's feelings about an event you not worrying about thunderstorms or anything like that. And so it's a really special place to be in. And I can't wait for get started last year. Plenty of people critical of the US in the way things were set up. You mentioned kind of the course layout to some extent. We'll see how it plays it everything in the next couple of days. But what do you make of that? Will that be a story, you think on, on Saturday, that, that people will be discussing what the US is? How did you? We're, we're going to be in for a nice week where we won't maybe have as much complaining in people taking issue with it. Yeah. Yeah. I'll be shocked if we have any issues I really well, they've taken, I think every precaution imaginable, and then mother nature's helped them the winner here was was very wet, and then it was wet late for the courses just incredibly, I hate using the word lush, but it really good. Fairways just I've never seen them, so perfect. So you're gonna see great scoring too, by the way, the greens are since ational. I just did a piece for golf channel on the, the, the Pohan Yuan, and it's very tricky grass here. And they've had real problems. And I think they've got it kind of figured out as and so you're just gonna have the ability if you're in the fairway to attack the course and I just don't see the USDA wanting to push it. I think they're just fine if ten or twelve under wins, in, they have a nice quiet week Geoff Shackelford senior writer for golf, we contributor to the golf channel joining us here on espionage, in radio ahead of the US open. Pebble and Brooks Kapka, you'll have a chance to win his fifth major five out of the last nine just absurd that he's won four of the last eight and just how he's kind of interacted with the media this week, if you could and we know the kind of what gained some traction was comments about not being in a FOX promo, but I remember. At Bethpage for the PGA championship. The, the comment that struck me was he said, you know, I feel more confident I can get away basically saying things now that that I couldn't or didn't feel comfortable saying when I when I wasn't winning, and I think that was one of those comments, maybe even about the promo, right? That, that maybe he doesn't make a year ago. Yeah. And I'm not sure he's gotten away with comment on bad. You know, he send the person who did it should be fired probably well as an all problem, they, they, they took out of the archives is one of four and it was that was a little outta line. But I'm laughing, of course you're saying it's because these little things that he's coming up with for motivation are, are, are kind of funny, really that, that these are the things that get going, but it works. And you know, golf is a sport where you have so much time to think about everything that can go wrong. And if you go through the history of the game a lot of the great players. Have done this. They've found things to motivate them, or thanks to make them angry to help with nerves really more than anything and for him, it's it's something that's made him focus and it's it's an amazing run. He's on. I just I sorta sad. But I understand why the more of the sporting world hasn't taken note because he's done it on such a variety of courses. It's, it's really the equivalent of, of what some of somebody winning the grand slam tennis because of the variety of places he won. And contended that at a stretch, and so many good players right now when we've heard how deep the fields are. Well, he just kinda dismantled that notion in a way and, and set it in press conferences, which is unbelievable. The discovery out and say, there's basically thirty five people to win and really half of them. Don't even intimidate me. I mean, it's, it's when we look back on this in ten years. We're just going to be shocked. That somebody was that way. But it's just a he's just kind of a once in a lifetime type of person and athlete. And of course, you have tiger who misses the cut at the PGA championship went out to the memorial and got some work in instead of taking five weeks off. Like he did between the masters in the PGA. What, what do you sense? Kind of his mindset is in health first and foremost, I guess heading into this, this week, and you expect him to fair, a lot better than he did at Bethpage. Yeah. He's gonna be fine. I'm not sure I you know, I picked him to win a coming into this because of his love for this place and his great iron play. If you've read anything you've, you know, the narrative this week is Pebble Beach is tiny greens, and it's a great place for our for people who hit their approach shots close. So everybody looks at those numbers. And, and they all line up, as you would expect that every time, US Open's here, the person who hits the most greens is really right there or winning. And. So that suits his game, the only thing that bothers me I just I haven't liked the way he looks like he's moving physically. When he when we've shown him on the golf channel hitting balls looks fine. But I can't say that I look at them, and I feel like he's got the full MO Jo going so again, that's I mean, this is this is a quibble more than anything. But, you know, chiropractor standing there on the range, and you watch and you think, okay well, I don't know if he's one hundred percent. He was honest about how things went, Bethpage. So but he has an edge here, Alexis that's really special besides having one here, just local knowledge and his love of the place. And, and that gives him some kind of extra level of, of confidence, and Mojo. And, and that I, I just think if him something over Brooks if it if it comes down to those. Two and there's a very good chance of will Jesse Shackelford joining us here from Pebble Beach senior writer for golf, we contributor on the golf channel at Jeff shack on Twitter and get Phil Mickelson potential for him to get a career grand slam. Do you think this is his, I guess best chance to, to still do that? I think this year and next year wink fo where he, he almost want our area because after that it's Torrey Pines in his hometown, San Diego, which she now doesn't even play any lives there. So yeah, unfortunately, I wrote a call today saying he has one hundred percents has vow wedding based on his very rude comments. I thought about the US J a couple of weeks ago and said they, they, they get one hundred percent wrong, if it doesn't rain every year, and it was so it was it was it was, it was kind of unacceptable because of the way he bay at the last year. He definitely has been the victim of. Some course setup screw ups and I completely get his rage, but at forty nine with all the stars that potentially aligned for him near with his history. Here is, he's Granddad caddy dairy thirty forty nine on Sunday. He loves California. He loves Pebble Beach the golf guides want him to win this, but then to go and do that, and get that negative energy going. It's just hard not to think, oh, here we go again with fell kind of, you know, get in his own way. So I hope I'm dead wrong. I hope I have to apologize for it the call, but I just feel like when, you know, how golf works union. Every little thing to go right to win a US open double beach. And he's kind of put something out there that, that could be a problem for them. At least you know, if you if you believe in the spirit of the Gulf, got two, two guys that are really interesting to me heading into this weekend is Rory. In, in Jordan speeds and just played better as certainly as of late, a couple of top ten finishes and putting together some weekends for the first time in a while what, what kind of chances do you give speed on a course like this in also ROY who has struggled for much to this season. Well certainly ROY has than last night. Yeah. You know you had an unbelievable. He's been he's been very consistent. I mean one the players and, and those other weeks that he hasn't contended. He's played very nice golf. He his, his issue has been in the majors getting off to a bad start. And after the first round and he dressed today it came up. He knows he's been sensational. So tomorrow is a huge day for Rory now mentally because he's aware of it isn't how these things get going. It could just be total coincidence. That he didn't play well the first round. So you've got to watch him tomorrow. I love his chances because of the way the golf courses he does and the forecast, there's not a lot of rain in the forecast. He does not like win. He's very open about that as well of courses. You know, back to what I said about being less. Roy also, not a fan of super firm and fast. So he likes it here. He likes the history, he knows what. What it would mean to him to win here. And he's coming in off that unbelievable win. So I, I love his chances, but his record in the US open of late has been awful. So, yes, he has some things like Phil where he's got some some, some energy issues that comes the US he kinda lets them get in his head.

"And in the o'casey game that we did he played Gabe it in the finals, he really fell apart. And I will have to think part of that had to do with the fact that he knew like if he didn't play while they might not want to keep him. This is the interesting dynamic. That's not really a that. I don't feel like is that old? Well, we're also talking about to bring it back to the beginning that that that that this is metabolic rate, right? Like the sports media metabolic rate is faster than ever. Like, you said something at the top about how something would happen. And you would wait a couple of days because you can't wait to hear what Dan Jenkins are read. What they're and Jenkins said about the masters or said about Michigan Ohio state, and that's gone that whole notion because everything has to be instantly, processed not just in terms of you know, the person sitting at home watching the game immediately commenting it. But the athlete themselves going into locker room at halftime yet times and seeing their performance evaluator. There's job status evaluated on a day-to-day basis. Not just by professionals, but everybody everybody has a voice now, and there's really not in a digital world. There's not a great deal of differentiation between sources, and I think it just makes people crazy. I mean, this is being studied. Now what Adams? Silver is talking to you about it Sloan is a condition that is not, you know, a specific to NBA superstars it is far and wide at it has a lot to do at the idea of just people being a isolated. But also, just you know, feeling overwhelmed and feeling that they just do not have a life apart from that digital existence. Do agree with what Bill said earlier, but we've now overcorrected a lot in sports writing seventies eighties nineties. There was a lot of finger wagging old man sports writing going on about players ethics are ruining this fan. They're all and that's your selfish. If it wasn't for the sports, it'd be so much file fish to one a lot of money because one of the most famous people in the world, how dare you? How dare you? Brag about your last contract. And I think it's almost totally to the good that we correct it a lot of that. Because it was you look up a lot of calms. They don't they don't they don't play well today from that. Just a lot of those are just insane. The late ninety s heard the last says twenty years ago, if you go back and read a lot of the basketball stuff back, then it's it's borderline racist. It's like, look what are these black guys doing is the underlying theme of a lot of the pieces. Why why can't these guys be grateful for the money? They've had a really unseemly. But I do think you can be so sympathetic to win understand the player that you do get to point where you're like what if that is just the problem? What if he's a dick? That's okay to say. I saw sandy McCullough cubs baseball at the time say this. He's like when do we get to the point where he just can't call a player out anymore, and Janet LeBron point is really funny because the one of the few people I saw just dig it on that was Bill plash key at the LA times. He's just being a columnist like a columnist has been for hundred issuers. Yeah. He's like, wait. I'm not feeling sympathy. Lebron feel sympathy to the Rich Paul LeBron entertainment experience. He's screwing up the. Acres. And so I'm going to write repeatedly that he's screwed up the Lakers, and this is a big disappointment. Yeah. It'll be interesting with as this goes with the Kobe fans to because there's that whole Kobe fan faction, really resents this Brown thing. And yeah, I heard I can't take credit for this. I heard it somewhere else. But when LeBron passes Kobe for points in some I can't remember who said that somebody was like he's gonna have to make sure he does it on the road. And I was thinking like that's absurd. And then I'm thinking, he probably will make sure he doesn't of the road. I don't know if you wanna do that that in a way, but it's you know, the buddy buddy aspect of this stuff in look I had Durant on six podcasts..

"Us Lupu, you know, whoever whoever the hot guys were in the seventies eighties. Mitch Albom whenever you couldn't read those guys now. But Dan, Jenkins an SI came to your mailboxes what this guy Mississippi was writing. So they had this huge advantage. You get into the library. And hope those guys wrote a collection or something like that. Oh, yeah. I remember. I remember being at some bookstore, Massachusetts when I was in college and Mitch Albom east to do these greatest hits books called. Live album. The live wasn't even the first one was alive album two or three. And I'm like, oh this is bitch album. I've heard and I bought this book and read all the columns, and I was like this is really cool. You get three rd Mitch Albom. And now we have internet archives. Yeah. You know, people always ask me, why haven't you done like a collection of your things? And it was like, I guess I could. But why would people could just find them online? Like, why would they have to read them in a book form has her call his book out getting paid in cash or I'm back for more cash? Yeah. Yeah. There was bald as I wanna be at believe. So so back the Jenkins just for a second. Like, I think if you made that Sports Illustrated roster in your being pushed, especially in the seventies and the early mid eighties. You just had a much bigger impact than you would have had anywhere else. If you're in Boston, even if you're in the New York Times, I just don't think it's the same audience. Absolutely. So that that airfields like a it feels like with him. He was the last of that group. And now, I I don't know who's that. Who's the who's the dean now Curtis who's the old guy? Nope. Not the guy. I'm sitting across from right here. Deem Kevin work who's the guy who who's the link to the seventies and eighties. The guy who was right in there deadline with a typewriter and cigarette. And now we're in the seventies eighties generation. So who is it? But most of those guys like, you know, Mike loop because like, you know, the daily news is kind of doesn't exist as the thing anymore. Yeah. Them in the difference. Right. Is that those guys don't have their their publications anymore. I mean, it's so now we're kind of on the nineties generation of guys who are still around. You know, it's it's Shaughnessy. Right. I mean, he starts late seventies. It's come on. You're asking me who was in the press room, Brian. But he's not even reading that much more. You know, it's funny. I have a hot take on this TV is killed the Dan Jenkins successor generation. I was just about to say because it should be like Kornheiser and wilbon, but those guys don't write anymore in around. That was that. That's exactly right. That's the portal. Right. That's the move. You were to acquire a a degree of fame. And then you're going to move into television and get your big pay day and get your house on anti kit. And that was that listen guys. I tried. It did not work. I'm back in the newspaper business. I want wanna update you let me update. Dan, jake. It's just to end this conversation. But this will this post him into the present. Here's the secret of him. He was a huge sports nerd he was a giant nerd he does not want us. Not like Jim Murray where it's like this is good comedy material for me. But I could also be doing show biz. Or it could be doing the business page whatever Dan was huge sports nerd, and he dragged people to college football and golf because he was so excited about it. He was a great writer, but he was also like I am so fucking excited to write about this. And to be at this major and to be Texas. Oh, you that you person who's not really interested in that would be excited to and that's people all the way through. That's you yet Zach Lowe that's other people who've Brian Phillips on tennis. Who goes this is so incredibly cool. You have to you have to read this. Yeah. And that to me is like the thing that you can bridge him way way back to the fifties.

"He was famous when he was coming up in New York in the sixties with his pal, bud. Trae another Pasco graduate, by the way, as bud. Once told me of always having a scotch and water in front of him, a backup scotch and water and a coffee. She hid those three drinks in front of him at all times you and I David did not get into the he man journalism coast play when we lived in New York together. But I think one thing we did do we never went to elaine's. And I'm kind of proud that we never went to elaine's. But the one thing we did do is. We did go to PJ Clark's for bacon cheeseburgers, outta Sal solidarity. Dan, Dinka, Jan Jenkins and Bush rake in I'm not sure we ever quite pulled off the backup scotch and water. But that was like the one we could ever afford the backups going through. Drew as we we wouldn't let it sit there on the on the bar for more than thirty seconds. Anyway, with drinking be like he was he was kind of ideal of just how to be about an act. I got this interesting coversation day with the Josh Levin. Steph fats on their slate podcast, and they were saying well, there was this generation of journalists after Dan who were kind of cost playing and they were learning from him. But but Dan was the original. And I said, I don't I don't think Dan was cost playing too. I think Dan watch movies in the forties. And that's how he got the idea of what being debonair gentlemen of the big city was was about her. You know, it'd be really fun to to imagine that all our sports writing forebears just knew how to do this like Dan learned at TCU had, you know, lay a few hundred dollars in the bar bullshit. Yeah. Yeah. Dan, learned all that stuff from the movies. And then a whole generation sports writers learned from Dan, you know, that that year of Sports Illustrated. It was sort of so iconic that, you know, they're being as recently as I mean, certainly when we were there there was there were outlets with the same sort of ethos of you know, when you when you move to a new office, the first thing to do is find your bar, you know, and and you and, you know, take up residence thereafter work. I guess Jenkins day they start taking up residence there after lunch sometimes, but. Yeah. But sure I mean. Yeah. I mean, there's a there is a, you know, the the stories about him are justifiably legendary. But I think you're right that they that, you know, every walk of life probably has a Dan Jenkins type figure in the fact that they were just sort of living life in the way that it was perceived. You're supposed to supposed to do it back then. But that also goes to his, you know, like, I used it phrase workaday before this sort of just like workmanlike blue-collar sort of attitude he had towards the craft right? That he would that he would work until he would drink, and then he would drink until he would sleep and then wake up and work, you know. And that was it was certainly a lifelong daily vocation. But there was you know, there was life on the other side of it too. Absolutely. He would he was more romantic about drinking and smoking in the times, I spent with them the ever was about writing when I was doing the photo research for for your. Wonderful obituary or calm about him after he died. I was I was always taken aback by the number of cigarettes that popped up in those even into like the late eighties. There is just like posing proudly with the smoke, which is just fantastic soaked in his author photos. That's that's cool. Dan, Jenkins was the Ted Beichman who's a newspaper who's an old newspaperman in Philadelphia, Los Angeles sent me this Email after Jenkins died, and he said the first time I met Jenkins was in November seventy two at the pole alone JR..

"You didn't you know that wasn't for you. Okay. That wasn't the greatest sports writers in the country where the people at Sports Illustrated, whether they were the greatest or not I can't necessarily make that claim. I can't make the claim that anybody in. Sports Illustrated was automatically better than red Smith or surely Povich, Larry merchant of the New York Post, but the intimidation of getting that magazine changed everything and they were great. They were great, and they wrote long and they wrote beautifully and they wrote with nuance, and they wrote with humor and the three best when I was around twenty years old the three idols of mine, Dan Jenkins, Frank Ford and curry Kirk, Patrick, okay? Curry covered college basketball and tennis Frank did a little bit of tennis and did wide ranging feature stories and Dan covered college football. That's what he did a little bit of golf, but mostly college football. And Dan Jenkins. He's Texas guy. He covered college football and golf because in Texas that's care about them. Then even have a baseball team. Then have like when Dan was growing up. There was no Houston Colt forty five's or Astros, Texas Rangers. There was football. That's what he had ranked two four. Ford grew up in the northeast went to Princeton, just became spectacular writer curry grew up in buffalo. But he went to North Carolina. Tar heel college basketball. That's what he cared about more than anything else. I left a message on Curry's voicemail the other day and very simple. So don't you ever die? Don't have you ever.

"WW Jay's Dan Jenkins. Dishes requiring kindergarten for any child that reaches the age of five by September. First the purpose of this is that we need to make sure that our youngest of our kids are able to make getting the education, they need the early experience of school and be able to get a handle on the literacy that is so important for them to excel as they move through elementary school to high school and beyond. And so we are losing a grip the young people being able to excel and meet certain requirements. Such as what the state passed in two thousand sixteen which was the third grade mandatory requirement that begins next year. And if a student at the end of the third grade, she's in in two thousand twenty which should be in June of two thousand twenty has not met that that need. They have to repeat third grade. I don't wanna have to see any child go through that based on those requirements and the best way to make sure that they are meeting those requirements is give them an early start. And and a required kindergarten is what's going to help them? And this isn't the first time that you've proposed us as it. No, I did propose it in the last session of the legislature. And what do you think it didn't gain any traction that time the Republican leadership failed to bring it to committee? And even though you know, we wanted this. I wanted the Democrats did many educators in administration wanted this. They failed. Bring it to committee. I'm hoping that this current Republican leadership both in the education committee and in the speaker's office. We'll see the importance of this especially as they continue to read the failures of public education here in the state that this would be a good steps forward to make sure that we are getting our kids the kind of education that they need. So I know some people might not know that kindergarten is an required. So this why hasn't it been required? And why is this an issue now, it's just a failure to the state of that is state Representative Bill sourby a democrat from Clinton township speaking with WW J's, Dan Jenkins.

"Also national trivia day. John Clayton, our guest, John how into trivia, are you or have you been in your life, not really too much? I mean, I I mean, obviously, I study everything in the National Football League. And I guess I'm more current affairs and sometimes looking back but again looking back in history, but it's not really big into trivia. Okay. Can I ask you a trivia question any way, or would you feel like I was trying to embarrass you? If I did that really embarrassed me, but I'm certainly not trying to embarrass you hear it is who won the first Super Bowl. Green Bay Packers. Correct. They wanted to I two they won the first to look at this guy. He's right now, you're just showing off who they beat do. They beat them. No one knows. Nobody remembers the team they beat beat to get there. The bill's chief Kansas City Chiefs. Yeah. Correct. Right. The first one anchor Graham, Hank Schram, matriculate the ball. Tricky late that ball up the field the first Super Bowl you went to. I'm trying to remember because I've asked you this before like Super Bowl ten nine Super Bowl nine two lanes day. Yeah. Now in Tulane stadium. The Minnesota Vikings going against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I still remember Dan Jenkins trivia, his his lead on sl. Because remember Fran tarkenton was the quarterback and the steel curtain gave him all kinds of problems. And so what the lead the Dan Jenkins wrote was that Fran Torkington was so frustrated that after the game that he tried to throw the football onto the field and frustration and Elsie Greenwood batted it down in that game Elsie Greenwood had four batted ashes. And he had gold shoes. Go choose. That's correct. I have a pair of shoes that I call my Elsie Greenwood choose the late Elsie Greenwood, right? He died trivia, what was the last time. You wore them. Oh, I don't know. More in the summer their summer shoes. Really? Yeah. But see that. I don't wear them very often because they they're appropriate for the summer here. We get snow and slush not recently. So that kinda is bad for these shoes. But in the summer in the summer, I'm always wearing shorts. You can't wear that really gonna rock those shoes with short. So it's not very often. Actually when when we hang out. I'll I'll have I'll be sure to have my Elsie Greenwood shoes. All right. Okay. That'll be good. Because we we can do that next summer. Right. We can do that. But let's go. So it is wild card weekend. I am imagining you're off to Dallas soon. I'm here at the airport. I got a four o'clock flight that gets me here. Somebody radio hits. I was juggling today because what happened yesterday. The station. Had this thing called a round table. Seattle. And so I was hosting the roundtable from two dolts reads, but it was supposed to be on Friday that I did it. But now they forgot that the game was going to be on Saturday. And so the team was leaving Thursday. And so I had to go and move everything over to Thursday. So that's why the juggle. In the meantime, not to take the third Thursday stuff moving to Friday and have all the Friday stuff still fit. So I just got here at the airport at about twelve thirty in every half hour have been doing something on radio, which is great. You're a guy who gets to the airport very early. Depend. I mean a lot of times, you know, when I'm on Saturday. I m my Saturday show, I might a chance to really get here until the ten minutes before boarding, but one of the things that I hope you guys have been able to be able to work with is that they have these wonderful apps right now where you can do live radio anywhere. So like, for example, if it's going to be a twelve thirty boarding for me on a Saturday. I'll just come out here and be here in the United club. And do the do the show from here. And it sounds like you're back home doing it on ESPN line or very good at this. Does sound great. That's what you're doing right now. You are I'm on my cellphone, right? All right. This out. It's a really clean connection for that to then. But you could be in the United club, right? I liked him in the United club in the United club as exciting. What do you think of this game? John Seattle will start there. You're you're there. You're going to be covering this game maybe on the sidelines. I like all four of these games in most ways. So you don't feel like there's a. I don't want to bother watching that game wise it even happening game this weekend and Seattle Dallas as much as I'm not a huge Dallas fan or anything. Like, it's a it's a pretty sexy looking matchup profanity night. Yeah. When you really think about it? I mean, this is a it's a quality wildcard round. Because what you're looking at is that three of the four teams. Philadelphia excluded has already beaten the other team even though their division winners. Although I guess you could say that Baltimore two out of the four because more did beat the chargers. But again, you even look at the betting lines, and you can see that. Normally it's going to be a three point difference with the home game. Well, you got Houston as a one to two point underdog favorite over in Indianapolis team who came back a couple of weeks six weeks ago beat the Texas and Seattle's like one to two points over the Dallas Cowboys and they beat the Cowboys in week three. So you know, and even the the other games chargers. I mean, he's still there the better team compared to vote 'em. Or even know Baltimore was able to beat them at the stubhub. And so I I think what you're looking at us at least maybe two wild card teams advancing and so- Seattle in Dallas. They played a long time ago that was pretty early in the season week three with might've been the Seahawks. I win it was and so both these teams came on. I mean, neither was really expected to be very good in the start or started very well both came on who who do you favor in the match up between them. I favor Seattle to a smaller degree now. They won by eleven points. And that's not going to be the case in this game. Because you know, Dallas is so much better than they were in week three, particularly with the addition of Amari Cooper, and the fact that this young defense has come together and really play good football. I mean, there's top five type defense, and so and every young which is even better. And so they were good speed. They got good coverage ability that got some pass rush. So they're they're much much better than that course, more Cooper traders made the offense better. But then you look at the Seattle team that was the turnaround game for them. They lost in Denver in Chicago. At that point. They didn't run the football. And there was a kind of a meeting of the minds that week between Brian Schottenheimer the offense coordinator and Pete Carroll the head coach because they just washed they didn't have identity on offense. And so what they did. And of course, Brian was brought here with the idea of running the football. You know, they they got DJ fluker at left at right guard. JR Swayze moved over to right. Guards. And so then they started pounding the football. And so in that Dallas game Chris Carson had thirty two carries over one hundred yards. And that got the start going for what turned out to be the best running team in football. Now missing from that game were three key players Justin Brit who is a Pro Bowl caliber type of center. He was out. Joey hunt was playing for him on the offensive line. And then Doug Baldwin their Pro Bowl caliber wide receiver was missing K J right there. Pull caliber linebacker was missing. So these guys are all going to be there. So that makes them a little bit better. And I think gives them a little bit of an edge. I wonder if these two teams like that they're running game some kind of cancel each other out to a certain degree, and it comes down to which quarterback you might want to trust more in the I-. It'd be hard. I mean Prescott a nice player, but it'd be hard not to favour. Russell Wilson there. Yeah. Because I mean, even when you look at the improvement in Amari Cooper is made with the Dallas Cowboys offense and the passing offense. They score still only score twenty one point two points a game where you look at Seattle. Now there over twenty six and in the second half of the season. They had more explosive plays explosive plays being twelve yard runs in sixteen yard completions than any team in football. And they were averaging close to thirty points a game. Even though it's a running offense in which Russell Wilson mailing the throw as few as seventeen passes or maybe just twenty nine passes on the average. And so I think the advantage goes because Dak Prescott sacked fifty six times does tend to hold the ball a little bit longer the Cowboys offensive line and had some injury problems. And so they're not as good as they normally have been and still pretty much you can see dock with a sixty seven percent completion percentage. You're doing more check downs. He hasn't any year because the leading pass catcher on their team was Ezekiel Elliott was Seventy-seven. He does get. He does get throwing the ball. Lot more often than last year. So that'll be a thing to watch on Sunday to John Clayton with us the first game tomorrow Indianapolis at Houston. You mentioned the point spread is a one point spread who do you like there? I like. Indianapolis. I mean, you know, the fact that they went in there and what happens with Houston. If no this is why any other matchup. I think would favor the Texans. But in this case, I think the matchup favorites, Indianapolis, they've been the hottest team in football. The last ten weeks. They have Andrew luck who barely gets sacked. I mean, he had eighteen sacks and has just quality blocking. And he said it's such a quality year and the key for anybody playing Houston. Just get the ten point lead in the second quarter because go back and look what happened a couple of weeks ago tenths of a Houston jumps to a seven nothing lead. Then Indianapolis comes back and get seventeen unanswered points in the second quarter giving him to ten point lead. And because does Shawn Watson really is not allowed to throw more than twenty six passes and thinks he can survive they they he threw thirty one. He was sacked five times and hit nine times their offensive line. Without question is the worst in football in the great coaching ability of Bill O'Brien what he did after the last indianapo-. Louis game is limit watching twenty six passes into play call because they knew if he had to throw more than twenty six he's not going to rise. So you don't lead, and you should be able to get home free on them. That's basically, the key is the more watch. And again, this is not a Watson problem is a problem because watching has to go through it, but their offensive line cannot walk. I mean, he's the most hit quarterback in the league. And I mean, he has taken a bruising. And you know, it's like if you watched Jacoby and last year, I mean, what Gobi percent did in Indianapolis was much worse than what we saw from watch it. 'cause watching just got pounded. And so you know, that's why they have to limit him. But he's able to do so much so many good things with the twenty five twenty six passes. But if you get a more than twenty six, and if you start the trail by ten point then you have to go from the running game to the passing game. And that's where the Texans can be in trouble kinda cool. Indianapolis for me. I mean, the NFL is always keeping you guessing. And in a lot a lot of people seem to guess at this stuff or talk about this stuff with a with a certitude like this is what will happen. This is what needs to happen. You take the colts. The they think they have Josh mcdaniels who spurns them. They moved to Frank Reich would never been a head coach before he grows beard out. They get to Chris Ballard is GM trade down in the first round. He's got a first round pick and a second round pick. That are both first team. All pro. I don't know if there's precedent for that. But that's pretty much amazing. Luck comes back. People had written him off all this stuff with the calls, and they were one in five like all this stuff with the cold is pretty sudden. And I think very appealing throwing little footballs in the summer league all full size for taking them out on hail Marys because he can't get it down there. And now look at him. Oh, yeah. No. I think that's one of the unique parts about this season. Because again, it shows you it's not how you start. It's how you finish. I mean, people forget the Houston started out Owen three and then came back and started rolling up all these wins on an easy schedule. And then win the division. And then you have the colts at one and five the Seahawks at home into a little bit. Of a slow start by the Dallas Cowboys and they've come on. So again, sometimes it's not how you start in how you finished. But I think what you can say is it the colts have finished better than any of these teams in the league because they have been red hot very special Friday edition of John Clayton here. Joining us on the western hotline WG are so the Sunday games. John the chargers like I've been a big admire Philip rivers. Probably a lot of people follow the league have liked him like the style. Like how proficient he's been? He's been a great quarterback. Maybe the best guy right now the best career to not have won a Super Bowl, and the draw is even after they had the great year. They had their a wild card because they're division with the chiefs. And they got a Baltimore. And like I'm wondering what you think can they can they pull the upset there. I think they can't. Because I think what you're looking at even though they finished in the tiebreaker with Kansas City with twelve wins. I mean, you could argue toward the end they're the most complete team in the conference because they've got the defensive the Kansas City Chiefs do not have and they've got Philip rivers in an offense. They've got the running game with Melvin Gordon and they have four really good wide receivers. Maybe the divas group of wide receivers in the league. And so no, I I liked them a lot..
