Fresh update on "darren waller" discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast
"On average difference between the expectation for these players. That's that's a pretty big difference. It is a big difference. yes the second part of the equation though heath is hey. I know that i can get according to adp. Michael thomas and keenan allen thirty first and thirty second overall. So i guess i'll just go with the running back run here. And that's that's the other thing is like i think. In p league only start to wide receivers that that makes a lotta sense. Most leagues. I'm in all of our mock drafts anymore. It's two running backs. Three wide receivers and affleck's and flex which should probably be a receiver all right. So let's finish out the twenty four recap thirteen through. Twenty one mixing acres hopkins chubb digs nashi harris swift ridley j brown last three picks or last three spots in the rankings justin jefferson antonio gibson and darren waller jefferson war bingo. I gotta bingo adam. Okay all the twenty four names that you send the consensus top twenty four in my top. Twenty four. Ooh i kinda got the feeling that was the case. I think that shaggy be maybe did a consensus of david. James rankings though otherwise aaron jones. Good lord i think he's got maclaurin and his top five or something like that fourth of my top twenty four. Didn't make the list but worth. I want to know those. I've got keenan allen number sixteen. Okay i've got michael thomas at twenty one. Yeah allen robinson at twenty two terry maclaurin at twenty three not quite a fourth sixth and twenty one. Most of them are twenty one through twenty three So allen thirty to thirty to thirty two. It's pretty low jamie hasim at thirty two. Sorry thirty as well. Yeah that's interesting. I just said what did i say last lascaux or two shows he's never been outside the top twelve per game or last four years. He's been top eight three the last four years per game. Npr at wide receiver. So i haven't tonio gibson at thirty two. So i guess that's that's fair. I did think it was. He really seems to be sort of solidified. People love antonio gibson. I feel and he's twenty third in the consensus rankings. Wallers twenty heath. You want to comment on that gibson. No i it's it's that's a that's one of those situations that We've gotta do a lot of projecting and because like ryan fitzpatrick doesn't throw to his running backs near as much as alex smith does obviously Jd mckissic cut like one hundred ten passes or something last year playing the same position and they just added curtis samuel who kind of plays the same position and they've talked about wanting to throw the ball downfield and the nave also talked about wanting to throw it more to antonio gibson so maybe he's gonna wind up out wide and run fly routes but i got ones.
"darren waller" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"Let's move forward. You're doing rookie that you like for dynasty formats very open. And the question here is to find you and I'm not talking about Trevor Laurence. Obviously, we all like Trevor Laurence, but somebody that's not super obvious. Yeah, I know. I mean, I could've gone with Trey Lance, but you know, because everyone knows that I am happy about that pick, but I went off the board a little bit with Michael Carter going to the Jets, and I think His chance to make an impact fairly quickly. It was kind of surprising because we don't think of the Jets running backs traditionally is being well, at least not of late. I should say is being that solid, but he can catch passes. He runs with power. He is somebody who has a chance to be on the field more than he's not because he couldn't pass protection as well. So I think you could make an impact fairly quickly. One of the criticisms been the Jets offensive line. They obviously have made some moves to try and sure that Oppa's well Ranks, I think was 29th in yards per carry before contact on. So the running backs not getting much of an opportunity, but I think was solid. They're some of the changes that they're making. I think that That it's also gonna be interesting to see since he brought Michael floor there how their offenses going toe look in terms of what the running backs are able to do so. Um, I'm watching Michael Carter. Yeah, that was a good A good value Pick. Yeah. And the Jets, of course, drafted two players named Michael Carter. One of them plays defense. One of the plays offense. You just lied about the offensive guy. All right. So, Stefan, you you went off the board for the Dynasty stuff. And then Matthew and I decided to go right down the middle with Daniel. So, Matthew tell us more about Trevor Laurence. Yeah. I mean, just again. Just sometimes we try to get too cute and overthink it. So listen, I went super obvious with Trevor Laurence. But the truth is, is that I mean, you know, there's a reason why trouble Lawrence has been called the You know the best prospect since Andrew Luck, Rightto come out and listen. I think you could make strong arguments for Jamaar Chase for Kyle pits. A surprise. He said. Trey Lance, I've seen a number of fantasy analysts that I respect say that Trey Land should be number one and dynasty formats This year I'm gonna go with I'm gonna go with Trevor Laurence, though Just because again many dynasty formats, you super flex, which, if you're unfamiliar, basically means you can play two quarterbacks and so Quarterbacks are generally devalued and fantasy, but not in super Flats and a dynasty. Look, quarterbacks have the longest shot five of, you know any position generally, you know, certainly, obviously, you know, Wide receivers are next and then you know, running backs tight ends, but You know, So for me, it's you know, for me, it's Lawrence. I think that he will. We've discussed this a lot field. I think he will run more than gets credit for then 17 rushing touchdowns at Clemson. I think they're going to give him every possible chance to succeed in Jacksonville. Already liked some of the weapons around him, You know, Lovestruck Lubis, ca Shonali DJ shark, obviously Marvin Jones, and so I'm I'm just excited about Trevor, Laurence and Dynasty. I mean, obviously, he's obviously just a star in every single way you write the longevity Certainly Bothwell for 10 or 15 or 18 or 20 Year career, because Tom Brady is showing us that apparently, some quarterbacks for at least one can play for 24 years. Daniel would be magnanimous. I'm gonna let you take the answer on Kyle picks the player that both you and I selected. Oh, you're so sweet Field for me. It's It's all about positional scarcity of the tight end position. Uh And this is a big step that stood out to me. The difference between tightened too. And tight and three last year was 102 fantasy points, which is just a massive drop off now, Obviously, George Kittle got hurt. But when you look at the top three from that tight end position it, Z Kelsey. It's Kittel, and it's Darren Waller. So the idea that you have a position where I could draft a tight end? Who's as young as he is with an established quarterback in Matt Ryan and other pieces on that offense, and Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones? For now, we'll see what happens with Julio the rest of this offseason. You know, he is in a position where he will not be a focal point. He shouldn't be seen the double teams. He's got a great offense around him. Are there Smith coming in? Like I said, you know, a veteran quarterback I love the idea of being able to lock up in Dynasty eight. Tight end position where finding a superstar is so much harder than a wide receiver or quarterback in these passing leagues. I just think finding a quarterback or wide receiver is a little bit easy. So give me that guy at a position wherever you've got Kelsey or a Kittle, you are feeling strong every week because you know you always have an advantage over the prisoner plain at that position. Yeah. I mean, it's the most elusive position in finishing fantasy football. I think a brisk everything you said. I agree with their Daniels. So continue to believe that Kyle picks is the guy in dynasty that has the most unique value relative to his position. Let's go to one more to find you here. Yeah, one more. One more Is which Rookie? Are you? Most excited about to draft 2020 season long weeks. Um, I don't have my notes. Okay, well, your answer was nausea. Harris was the same one you gave me and that you always had a reason He didn't make the note cut up. I love nausea here is because he can do everything right And and Pittsburgh loves their backs that are versatile and they're looking for someone who could stay on the field. And I think that was part of the challenge with James Connor and ultimately his struggles with staying healthy or an issue for him, So it's kind of like Now it's the next generation of running back. They want someone who could do it all and not get Harris should be able to do it all. There were some questions about his ankle coming out of Alabama. Whether he had a problem. They're not. I've been told his ankle structurally sound there. No major issues at all there. Every everything is full go, and he's expected to be 100% when the season opens, so We know it wasn't that what we always talked about. Fantasy is like opportunity and availability. So as of right now available and as of right now, certainly looks like he's got Tons of opportunity. Matthew, if you had to give nausea and outlook relative on like the skin scale of, say, pawnbrokers, probably Apex. Maybe Josh shake ups is somewhere in between, like where would you sort of rank Nagy's outlook amongst Guaranteed started for his team in rookie outlook for fantasy like is he? Is he gonna be a top 15 Picking your opinion? Top 22 top 30 how high he did not. So we just released a new episode of the fantasy show on ESPN Plus and Um, the, uh, when.

This is bringing altogether. Now right. waller is a beast. I have zero concerns about waller struggling out there or or regression of any sort and nothing ties. You guys have really good. He's probably gonna regress. There has to be a you know regression here somewhere. He did better than he did. Two years ago he just keeps getting better. The offense keeps getting better. They know that they have to make him more and more part of the offense. That's how this is working. He's not old the offense and fallen apart waller. She's gonna continue to do better. We you know we can pull the tapes on the podcast. We could put my tweets. I was on a wall or two seasons ago. I screwed it from the top of the podcast and twitter streets before he exploded onto the scene for the raiders. So these kind of calls. I love the ones where the research pays off in a major way all the little details the articles the the the practice the seasons the off season the training camp preseason all that kind of stuff to the the film the data the the position opening the Into the possibilities were there all there. The opportunity was there song. I'm glad that all that stuff came together for me and i called it out And these these are beautiful calls you know it paid off in a major way.

NFL flexes Washington-Panthers to keep intrigue in Cowboys-Eagles
"Let's start with. The panthers and washington got moved to four zero five because they do not want the philadelphia eagles and the dallas cowboys to know that they've been eliminated if washington wins. They want the eagles and cowboys to still believe that. There's a chance dominated a chance during that game. So what do you got for. Washington carolina while for fantasy purposes It's well we're going to have to see who washington's quarterback is this week although rate before we got on on the podcasts. Here there was a situation involving dwayne haskins. Where their post on social media of of haskins Getting swag on at a at a strip club without a mask on look believe me. I know that there are Those are establishments where clothing is optional. but in the nfl masks are not right now. So washington is not going to be very happy about dwayne haskins. I think it was Tom pal sarab. Nfl network reporting that the team is handling that internally not happy. I'm sure. I think they want alex smith back this week. Anyway against carolina that would raise the ceiling of this offense. I'm still not one hundred percent. I as a matter of fact. I'm not confident at all antonio gibson playing this game turf toe is very painful so that should mean a big role for jd. Mckissic once again had a huge fantasy game last week against seattle. It was nice to see terri mclaren. Come alive in that game. A little bit with dwayne haskins at quarterback too good matchup against carolina. I would use him as a wide receiver. Three and over last month of the season only two tight end. Travis kelsey and darren waller have been targeted more have caught more passes and scored more fantasy points than logan thomas. He is a tight end. One now against the carolina panthers and i think everything would look better for washington if alex smith can play quarterback.

Ohio state famous law more Fan albert brewers out there saying bring in texas. Am they should let ohio state schedule a game this weekend. Big ten athletic directors are meeting. Tomorrow they should make whatever statement they need to do it and get out of the way and let ohio state move forward here Jalen hurts was just named the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia eagles in new orleans whose quarterback tastes them hill. Just joined us earlier tastes him. Said he doesn't know yet if it's going to be his start. That sounded if you want my two cents. Somebody who's been around the block a few times national football league. It sure sounds to me like it's going to be his start and you know it's not his place to break it on the rich eisen show. It's coach doesn't want these things talked about in public quite frankly but it's been talked about now. That jalen hurts is the starter and the head coach. Doug peterson according to albert breer. He's quoting him. Said he told the players last night and that he praised the way. Both players reacted quote. Sakorn doug peterson. Carson is like all of us right now. He's disappointed he's frustrated. He's been a professional throttle. So those are some news Breaking in the national football tonight. You've got the baltimore ravens taking on the dallas cowboys in the finale to week thirteen. That has been just lights out. Just a ton of amazing action going on all over the place. And that includes the game between the raiders and the jets where it looked like the jets were coming up with their first win of the season and jets fans Watching the Front pole position for the trevor lawrence race just vanish but in came Two things at the end a weird defensive call to say. The least that left henry ruggs one on one for derek carr defined to win the game and this man who came out with two hundred yards receiving at the tight end spot. Not just for the raiders but for everybody's fantasy league teams in the studio. We all love this man and we all want to say thank you personally to the pro bowl tight. End of your. Las vegas raiders. Darren waller how are darren. I'm doing. I'm doing better for you. How about that. So thank you essentially view saying. Thank you but i'll start this one. Thank you. so let's get into this. Your where were you on the field. When derek went up top to rugs at the very end i was in. I was in pass protection like chip in and running. Like a like a tech down route for derek. But he called me into like extra protection. For the books to digest rhode island so i was passed which i can foresaw the entire the wall on hand to dreary okay so the blitz was coming Darren yep why I'm the icu. As a i mean that's what williams flex to do and that's what The jets do best day than do. Allow getting all that pressure our game and in the prior week. So i i just wanted to stick to What they probably the most effective That's what i think the reasoning behind you. But i mean we just go up. We just do what the defense is. So in your days of playing football darren. I assume you've been in a position like this before where you need to hit a big one in order to win with very little time left. Have you ever been in a position where Team has blitzed like that. Darren I don't think so. No so this is the first essentially. Yes i okay now. Did they blitzed the before to the one up. Top to lord that was Potentially the game winner they let's Not that was a they just dropped into a cover to now and anyway like a valid plated cover too because they jump that deep out route in nelson w we've got a binding that was like a like a soft zone okay so After the game Where you all just getting together saying. I can't believe they blitzed us did that happen. I think more happy that was one. Yes like busy emotional. So high wasn't just like a why they blew later on. It was kinda like lit so we took advantage but it was like initially. It was just like you know just crazy motion. So let's get that the last two weeks. It's been quite a struggle. Compared to the previous ten. Darren d think that whatever was going on with team traveling to the east coast and back to back. Weeks can't be simple for that plane. Early window games you through that. Now you're ready for the last four weeks. What essentially what did happen. The last two weeks is my way of asking that calm. No just not playing our best. football no mistakes being made not being as precise as we are Out they are run game. They're like we know it can be like it usually is. That's just one first team so that kind of sets the tone but Yeah good to have survived Came out with the wind and now it's like we still have not things that we walk front of us so it's good to be at home after he last four here and to be able to be in a situation that Certain advanced Darren waller tight end of the. Las vegas raiders here on the rich eisen. Show your story's amazing. Darren what you are who you are what you are what you become where you've been where you're going what you've got going for. You is truly remarkable. I honestly did not know your story until hard knocks last year. If i told that kid from the baltimore ravens. What's going on right now for you.

"Ladies and gentlemen mark. Sanchez. Let's talk about Levy on bell where you think he's shop at Aj last night I got from somebody saying that he was seen in the Buffalo Airport and has been reported publicly now by I guess one other person as well or the person that publicly reported. That was the one that sent me the message of nine hundred center which way it goes. He was allegedly seen in the Buffalo Airport at Duff's, which is a compe- competition competitor of Anchor Bar which is. The home of Buffalo Wings in the airport very interesting, and then there was reports that he was in Kansas, city chiefs airport he followed Patrick Mahomes on twitter, and there's some likes that he's going on and then a dolphins are allegedly in play as well. So right now levy on lady on. Bell Watch is in four effect. Where do you think is the right place for him to go in? What is the team getting whenever they get Levy on bell in Twenty Twenty I mean if I will say, I'd want to go to the chiefs I. Think. There's three teams, dolphins, chiefs, pills, that gives you most likely the the highest percentage chance of winning the Super Bowl I. Don't know what his role would look like I think he wants to be more of the every down kind of guy but maybe he's okay I'll go take a little bit of a back seat and really revamp my career and hopefully get rid of it. If you want to ring chase I, think the chiefs is probably the team to go to but also everybody thought there was a chance he ends. Up. In New England or Tampa Bay, just strictly because New England that would be a move that New England and everybody would be like, of course, Bill Belichick does it and maybe that's why the bills and the dolphins are so intrigued by the way so that bill can't do that or Tampa Bay Tom Brady. It's like he needs a lot of people are saying this is not saying I don't watch film. He needs a check down running back out of the backfield that can get yards forum Allah James White, a La Dion. Lewis there it is. Thank you a Patriot fans the giants by yeah. But he was right. Wasn't he was a couple of decades ago. Yeah. But he was so many running backs going through the stable. Because Tom Brady loves throwing to his backs out of the backfield. So it's there. Everybody's thinking that he needs at done in Tampa and level be that guy but it turns out I guess it's just bills-dolphins. Chief says, Jeremy Fowler Thirty SPN who might know have levy on his team from his Pittsburgh steeler days because that's who reports for a you know who would use him well, but it's Never GonNa, happen is the Green Bay packers can you imagine Aaron with this Guy Lydia Mbala tried to cover the dude is He is so illusive coming out of the backfield catching the ball like they would have some they would use him very very well but the problem is already have two studs there right now and that draft or not, and it's kind of what I said yesterday like it stinks this weapon if he's still the weapon, the guy that you were talking about having to cover the guy that I saw in defense at meeting basically in the. Team meeting saying like look this guy does showing an entire highlight reel of the guy basically the entire defense being like, okay. We're playing ghosts this weekend basically somebody that's untouchable at this point because of our lose vi I actually pointed at tie and I was like of sucks it. That is the one position I guess I guess number one you've got a guy but running back, you have a plethora great backs out of the Backfield to. Williams catching the ball Aaron Jones catches them ball. It sucks for the Green Bay packers who need another weapon that they happen not need this particular weapon but then there was a lot of conversational one slot glutton place. So I receive for or put him in the back of moving around them do whatever you're. Right they won't do it. But especially, if there's really no financial risk involved either it's like, hey, why not know you mean packers are hot right now lineup slot for fifty six I'll tell you why because he's got string cheese for hamstring Oh gosh? That was obviously a guy from Pittsburgh right there. And I do believe he has been injured what the? Aj It is disgusting. Shake your head. That's good. That was right I decided that feeling that was disgusting but he has been injured at the jets and now the question is. Is this eleven belder getting the jets Levian bell the guy who. Just didn't perform it wasn't because of gays was because the culture was it because Levy on bells a little bit older and he had hold on your where he was having a great time down in south Florida is a rapper or is this levy I'm getting that still has a lot to prove what you're what he says he is I think it's worth than eight hundred and fifty thousand risk or whatever the vet men is in let the jets pick up the rest of the tab there. Without a question without a doubt it's absolutely worth it if you have to pay him vet men but it also got me thinking too when you say you're getting all these DM's I think I'm going to become I'm going to start to become very active on instagram I don't own it. I don't I haven't opened up any burner accounts but I think I'm going to open up. Just. So I can strictly send you DMZ. Go take. So boomer.

"This is a total proven deal for him and to see if you get resigned again but I mean if I'm any of those teams achieve softens. Or bills. Why not? Why not take a flyer on him see if you can hang for a couple of weeks if he's not a problem in the locker room, then keep him around. Let them play. See what you can get out of them for eight, hundred, thousand dollars and move on. Mr. Sambre Sanchez yesterday Dane or Slavsky said that darnold probably isn't going to be the future the jets because trevor. Laurence. Do you see that as well or do you see him being the long-term option in new? York. I can see this going both ways. But you just the most important thing you got to remember similar to me when the GM that drafted you is gone. Anything's possible you could end up being the new GM's favorite quarterback of all time. Or? You can get cast aside and usually it's the ladder so I would not be surprised and that's no knock on Sam that's no slide on Sam. Sam's capable of being the quarterback there or at thirty one other franchises he can absolutely do it I know, yes the talent it's just he needs players around them look what they've done for Josh Allen. In the same amount of time that they've had SAM darnold. Looked at the differences in the roster. Bills have household names at receiver. Tied I mean. They have legitimate players and a good defense. Great special teams. So don't tell me that Sam Darnold isn't maybe just about as good. If not better potentially than Josh Allen, I've seen these guys workout one hundred times together and they're very comparable talent wise arm talent all that kind of stuff. Those freaky throws a Josh Allen Makes Sam makes them all the time as well? He just doesn't have the players to help them out and make him so sam go. Somewhere else and they decided to pick trevor. Lawrence. Hopefully, they followed the right method and just take a look up north in Buffalo and figure out what they did acquire other players in the draft draft in developed signed key free agents at the time and hope you hit on them Stefan digs and roll the dice after that and let your quarterback develop but. Either way SAM's GonNa. Be just fine. I think he's a great player and. It might be better for both sides to. Cut Ties and move on Damian response said the same thing basically. Sanchis, we have to get to a break. We can't thank you enough for taking some moments that I know it's going to be a busy day now that you're big record deal album singer, you know if you ever make a song though in you think it's potentially going to win a grammy I. I would appreciate the opportunity to maybe get a whistle in the background. So I can be a grammy nominated grammy winner. Well, we've got a solid set a backup singers there I heard thunder. Well we're we are unified bunch button I don't think that is what wins. GRAMMY'S I. But let's see what did they say baby alien probably a country record and Then maybe like a reality spinoff. Honestly. So that's coming down the pipe here soon probably tomorrow well, we can't wait to see it baby alien maybe up in a cabin somewhere people will have to watch.

He was a baby alien. He's handsome. He's former NFL quarterback this sange is mark. Sanchez. How's it going mark? Good. Buddy, how are you?

Here we go. The great hair. Great is great. Look great night last night had no idea was that the first episode did you get voted off on the first episode you've been on there for a couple of times you know thanks for caring. Thanks for watching football. Fiery Day. Save it. No that was my second appearance on the show. Thank you. Made it through the first round to the second round I still think I should have got a little farther. I had another good song ready to roll and I had a good smackdown song just in case it came down to that. But just trying to broaden my broaden my reach and get uncomfortable learn some new skills just like you did with wwe this. This is my version of that I lost and wd well, you lost in a mass shooting or so it's same same split loser sittings easier basically. How was that process? So I watched the first couple of seasons and I am a fan of the show believe it or not. I just didn't even on your show was happening I to be honest I can't tell anybody Bingo so you can't market your on it. If you would've told me, you're on it I probably would watch but you can't. What is the thing you're in? Like I've heard it's Like no windows you get driven back you get like a mass put on you nobody has a clue who you are except for who the drivers I guess how does it? How does the entire process work I mean even the drivers they give a Hoodie and this mask that completely tinted and they cut out these holes like they tape everything on the inside of the mask could literally only see like. This much of someone's face you can't tell anybody who? Has You have to sign paperwork like? A thing stack of paperwork. and. You kind of get shuffled in and out you're never around the other contestants. And you're not really supposed to hear them perform. But I said this Jenny McCarthy show at like a reaction Kinda. Show. And I remember walking out like so you go through this whole process I felt good with the puppet I felt good more or less singing I knew I had a ceiling on my singing talent, but I wanted to make it as best as I could and I thought I did that I thought the choreography was solid I thought the backup dancers credible like everything was on point right I'm walking out after my second performance feeling. Good. And you're not really supposed to hear the other contestants perform as the show's happening, and so there are a little late getting me out and they hurried on Seahorse a little early. So we kind of pass each other in the hall and I was like Oh. That's cool. Costume a good luck, and then we still don't know who the other person is. And she goes on stage and I hear it and I swear to God it's Selene Dion. So I just stopped everybody that's like ushering me out of the building of the studio building and I go wait a second and my contact was key. And I'm like key. What's the Dale? Bro? How did you put me in a group with Selene deal? I was so pissed wasn't actually slammed the good. Do We know this Leon yet? Have we have not I don't think it's actually swing on, but she saying the titanic song might as well. Do Dude if they're sayers like that like. All right. there. You're there strictly for the entertainment I'd assume that they potentially thought you stunk to you were good singer you were you had good punks and I said not. Get good pipes out there I. Think you saying even before that you do these little digs and then try and I'd it with like? I know I'm assuming when they signed you up to be on the show, there are pumped about it. Thank you, and then they immediately thought this guy will suck. This'll be a William Hunger situation here and we'll be able to have the selene. Do Good it's good entertainment, but you were very good I very. Now when I heard it after knowing that you were eliminated and was you I, did hear your voice in there and I was like this guy got a voice of an angel were you a singer or is it just something you did in the shower or? Shower concerts daily. I Love Karaoke. Those are some of my favorite times in New York actually in Chip Brioni. Downtown. There is like this fire escape ladder and super late night back in like twenty, ten, twenty eleven. My best couple years with the jets Sundays. After Games we'd go to chip Brioni would go if we had a day game at home well, at about nine ten o'clock, they shut the restaurant down and you can walk upstairs and they have this whole Karaoke setup and it's essentially a club. They have a DJ WHO's like elevated up in this corner, and next the DJ they have a professional to professional singers, a male and female. And you put in your Karaoke requests from your table and you can sing from your table and people are obviously getting pretty liquid up. So they suck at singing somebody just like technician turns down there Mike Smart and turns up that professional singers who were hired to be there all night. That's a good idea that's healthy by. Really great because everybody sounds good. You don't get the drunk person yelling and. It was awesome. Right. So I'm being competitive jerk that I am and like all right. I could do this. Let's do this so I would constantly. Constantly choose sorry my dad for Real Dad. It's my real dad. Not My real dad I don't have to listen to you. So. I would request it's time by imagine dragons. All the time that was one of my favorite song, and then after every night, I was notorious for up to the singers like, Hey, did you guys have to meet me out?.

"Let's get to the show. And there's a lot of talk about let's get to tone digs how you doing, keep it moving. What was your big thought when you woke up this morning when it came to the NFL to the NFL it's it's definitely where. On Bell is going to go because it's not every day question quick question lady on or is it Levian? I always say what did I say you said later on but the person we talked to yesterday I forget who it was. They also say avion. After an E. sometimes it silent sometimes, it's not yeah because whereas the. English language is French. I thought it was a friendship. That's why so lay revealed. By you would be right there tarshish. Also calm level. And that's where it gets. I call them live well but the person that talked to us about him yesterday said later on and they felt like they were in a position to know that name a lot better than me. So if later on or Levian is watching or listening know that it's not our fault we've heard it both ways we would get cleared up, but we'd also get cleared up or the hell's he. Going Hey, eighty is getting interesting. The conversation right now is that there's three teams in the hunt and this is coming from Jeremy Fowler who covered Levian or later on bell whenever he was at the Pittsburgh steelers. So it's maybe they had a good relationship and he has an inside scoop on this right. Now, the conversation is around the chiefs because the rich get richer and they could use them in the backfield I guess. The bills because they are like twenty six or twenty eighth in rushing in the NFL in if Josh Allen had Levy, mbelle that'd be awesome and the dolphins are very much in the hunt that has come out that the dolphins are a really trying to make a play here. Now, it is very intriguing because the jets next three opponents are that the dolphins, the bills and the. So this is a spite sign out of Levy on belt specked it even more don't think you'll be able to play this weekend for any team that he signs for because of the covid nineteen protocol today this that thing but just come from a place where he was in the protocol. So if you passes to automatically back and if he takes that now, will he be able to be good? Let's do messes this week wherever he signs but if you look at those three teams in Kansas. City chiefs if they if they pull this off, it'll be even more amazing that they have this money. Now granted jets have to pay for everything that the signing team doesn't pay up to six million dollars. So we assume everybody's GONNA pay him eight, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars or eight hundred, thousand dollars, whatever it is, which is the veteran minimum deal, and then just have the jets pick up the TAB on the other side five point whatever one, five, five, point, one, two, five, million in have. Levy on bell and the team say. Fuck you to the. which is exactly what they would do. But if you look at the dolphins in the bills and I think at Boston Connor money brought this up earlier with somebody else or dumpy did who is a diehard fan of the dolphins? Isn't it interesting that the AFC's now he was on the jets they're obviously getting rid of him but the other two teams. that. Yes. You would obviously be good for their team and in Miami who knows how that'll be off the field because that is where his rap career was. Taking off the year he held out but are the bills in the chiefs. Well, we can't have check at this guy and he would help our team. Let's go and make a play in gump has dolphins fan it doesn't matter if it's be flow trying to make sure it doesn't get him or if it's the dolphins saying, fuck you to gaze again, you don't care how you feel everyone bellinger team pump for right one game out of a playoff spot get bell. We're right in the mix. Do you think Miami could potentially be problematic for Levian bell off the field because we saw his holdout year, we're talking jetskis rap album released parties at two. AM He? Had A good time. It was actually it was entertaining to follow along. He comes back into football says he still has to prove he's focused on football but do you think the distractions of South beach might be too much for a guy who already got to experience it for an entire year bumpy but if he also wants to get paid next year, get another big deal. He asked his show up this year right? Oh. Someone is the motivation is the thoughts or is it the big cash? That is the question that we're GONNA have to ask and I'm intrigued to see how it all works out I, D m from somebody last night the told me that. Levian bell was spotted in a Buffalo Airport. Oh. I have a friend who works at the anchor bar in the Buffalo. Airport which I have eaten Matt by the way I've eaten at that said exact restaurant, not lot options in the buffalo airport to eat. By the way, the anchor bar is basically the only place you can go and we'll go. So although the source was not anybody I knew or anywhere near legitimate just wanted to put out a feeler does mafia neat Levy. On Bell and there's a lot of buffalo bills fans are like absolutely that would help our rush and then there was a lot of buffalo bills. Fans are like don't need them in the culture is Levy on bell in the same conversation and I'm not saying that person was right or wrong, and that's why I'm not in the insider news world because there's reports that he was awesome Kansas City in the airport too. So you never know. That's why I'm on insider because I do potentially get scoops but said, scoops could come from said stooge that taking things up that could be you know kind of doing your bait for me I just kind of stay out of that game, we let the professionals do it unless they want to. And then get them houses tour kick them by the Torah Promo Code rap sheets have to at least get him a little bit more money. Think. So when I asked if he If Buffalo needed him lot of buffalo bills, fans, spills mafia said, no, we don't need them in our culture. We don't need that is levy on bell at that point because if you if you listen to. Pittsburgh steelers fans when he left Pittsburgh, they were the toxic twins is what Markman code him in Pittsburgh was get him the hell out right just get him on Lebanon held out there like we hate him keep it moving then. What happened with Antonio Brown off the field everywhere else? Pittsburgh. steelers fans are like we were right about that. But the way everything has happened off the field for left bell on the field and the way he's spoken about Pittsburgh. If feels like steelers fans are like, all right, we'll take them right back in Pittsburgh if he wants to separate himself from that bad image is it because he liked to tweets and said Adam Gates was A. Stooge, which is what everybody is thinking that they're saying he's bad for the culture I don't in my eyes I think eleven bell. I'm not thinking like is this guy going to come through miley cyrus wrecking ball into our locker I don't think that like I think Oh is this Guy GonNa. Try. Is this guy going to be the guy who was from three years ago and that's molly the amount of tweets that I got from. People saying he'll ruin our culture. I found like holy. Shit that's what people think of Layer Levian Bell that was interesting to me I..

If you're ever on our podcast page as well at review journal podcast check out some of the other shows that we have there. They are J ringside podcast golden Edge podcast and wage more. All right everybody. So let's get into this right now. I think I'm going to kick things off here with Michelle beisner-buck who talked to me about her feature that she did with Raiders fans. The Raider Nation found three different groups of fans that have relentlessly pursued this team. So let's talk to her now about that feature that she put together with some of the families that you followed. It's really amazing their Journeys as Raider fans and some of them have bought these Legacy bricks that are going up and around the stadium that one of them that most interested me that I saw in a little snippet of your feature was Ed and Tina Acevedo. They're from Corona, California, but they got married in Las Vegas talk to me about what it was like wage. Speaking with them and their unique wedding that they had in Las Vegas. All right. Well, first of all Tina and Ed are they were so much fun to interview we luckily were able to do all of these interviews be so I at least got to see their faces and I just they are just so infectious their personalities are just right and their love for each other off her nation is is like nothing maybe I've ever seen and I am a super fan of T myself and they are this is legit. So they met they were both managers at Walmart. They never thought they started dating obviously for Ed, you know, Tina had to be a Raider fan. There was no way that he was going to spend the rest of his life with somebody that was in a Raiders fan, but she actually didn't grow up a football fan. So she comes from a she had a little bit different perspective, right? He introduced her to Raider Nation. They went to a game. They sent the black hole. They tailgated in Oakland inoko. And she said it was the birth time of their life. And from that moment on she was a die-hard Raider fan. So they were driving out to Las Vegas to make the long story even longer for you. They were driving out to Las Vegas and they both been married before and I believe it was Ed that actually came up with this idea and asked Tina if she would be willing to get married in Las Vegas. To which she said? Yes, and then he's ruin this little cherry on top of what if we did it in Raiders jerseys. So what she said absolutely so they went and they got married need to get the rest of it, but they did it in their Raiders jersey. So, you know, the Raiders are not only a part of how they started dating and how they courted one another and the funds that they kind of formed going the game, but man I mean, they took it to the extreme they got married and Raiders jerseys. I don't know that as much I love my husband. I don't know that I would have done that for him to her home. Well, like we said you are doing this feature package here on a lot of the Raider Nation fans and how their travels have been to come to watch the team how many of them that you interviewed our job at least saying, yes, we will still travel to Las Vegas to watch our Raiders play every single one of them. I mean with with no question. I mean they Raiders fans Will Rogers Travel and I think that you know traditionally and historically Raider nation has a bit of reputation for being a bit rambunctious little wild it can at times even be dangerous. But you know, I think there is that's the misconception or the perception of crazy fans and every single one of these lovely people that I talked to were gracious and and said that there is nothing but camaraderie and an awful feeling of unity and family and it really is special. It's like it's like, you know, I don't know I think that I think there are certain fan base wage is in the NFL and across Sports in general that really really Define what it means to be a die-hard fan and and the Raiders fans really epitomize all of that song. So, I mean there was not a hesitation. I didn't finish the question when I interviewed these people and ask them if they would be going to Raiders tables. The last absolutely they said we'll be there somehow someway will tailgate it's Vegas were in it doesn't matter how long the drive is we're going to they're they're all in every one that I talked to said that they were going to miss tailgating at Oak go and being there because it was a unique venue. It was a unique Stadium. It was like a unique and very special kind of sacred place for them. But but far off the response to that was everyone is really excited. And you know again wherever they go the Raider fans will travel they will be there. They they have unwavering loyalty to the silver and black great stuff. And again, I'm on the line here with Michelle beisner-buck and you had some big news for your own FAQ. During the Bengals Browns halftime your husband Joe was named to the 2020 Pete Rozelle radio television Award winner, which means Pro Football Hall of Fame just as his father Jack before him did and that makes them the first-ever father-and-son duo to achieve that what was that announcement? Like for your family? Oh girl..

"That the Ravens are just a tougher passing defense that are rushing Defense Gotcha yeah I feel good about it too. We'll see how plays out. That is a real deal defense. So it's not out of the equation that that's a problem All right. Let desert a listener questions. We have a real raiders themed listener questions I felt good that I wasn't the one pump in the raiders onto the show the listeners were. So shout out to the listeners who who know wanted to graciously make this a enjoyable episode for me subsides Jerk McKinnon. Barrel joffrey access. At Barrow Joffrey our boy said WHO's the Titan one and why is it Dan Waller Adam, how do you feel about this man? He very well might be the tight end to while George skittles out but Travis Kelsey, quietly meanwhile during waller making ton noise Johnny Smith ton annoys Noah Fan Tyler higby ton annoys all those guys are top five but who sits Dr Travis Kelsey as always forever he's a lot for Laker. It literally go back over the last four years. He's the tight end tight end to all the time. So for me yeah, it's Travis Kelsey, but I mean, Darren Waller is a must start every week. You gotTa feel phenomenal about him I know we feel phenomenal because all of us were big Darren Waller guys this year our home and a bunch of leagues. So yeah, I mean He. You know he is that offense it's human and Josh Jacobs that's that offense and you know with. Las Vegas has figured out is that's how you win in the NFL. You just find guys that dominate and you just give them all until the defense can stop if they can't just keep doing it. It's simple. Shocked Jon Gruden figured it out. But like bullshit no out wax poetic a little bit because I is actually all about it. The raiders are impressive you have to you have to admit after the first two weeks of the season. You can see the built offense. The car can actually run don't act like Carson good quarterback we'll get to that. Question coming up on him but. As far as building an offense around a quarterback and around your skill position players, they're doing that exactly how you'd want and they are a funnel offense. So for fantasy waller. Ingestion. are huge smashes this year. Yeah I appreciate good workers there I don't mean you're speaking. So he'll the raiders is very uncharacteristic. It's frustrating they don't even like it, but it's true man you got to give credit where credit's duke written has done a great job building that all fence around his talent. I do you WANNA share this to this little Bill Belichick had an inter-, his interview today's press conference because they're playing their raiders week and he was axed. How good of a tight end is Dan? Waller how tough of a match up and this is Bill Belichick and obviously we know he talks about the opponents and make them feel good in catch him sleep in a little bit. But this is what he's at. He said, yeah, he's really really tough I. think it's been such a long. Time since we've seen a guy like this, he's really got great receiver skills played receiver. He's got a lot of length a big receiver does, but he's got very quickness and he blocks very competitively. He's not afraid to mix it up. So he does more than a receiver plan tight end ways at all the skills that can come inside. He's a very good insight receiver, which sometimes a white outside trouble making that move in there. He's really been impressive to watch. We saw him last year looked at. Him in the off season and you just see him doing everything playing wide playing the backfield play inside and run indeed, catch and run plays block in flash plays point of attack plays so very versatile player pre unique guy in the league. There's some really good tight ends but nobody really does more than this guy does and he does it very well, he's got excellent hands. It makes lots of catches. He's definitely match problem now I know he talks us up I know he does this everybody feel. Like there's value there when you saying like is legitimate right and I just wanted to you know try to throw some more Dan Waller man because you guys know I've been on it to three years now whenever the raiders were bringing them on and so I feel really good to see him having success like this in his story, you know his his struggles with drug abuse and just makes it even much that much more better So yeah managed Darren Waller shown to Darren Wall Josh wanted dispute. No. Not at all I remember I remember when people were. Out there in waller because of some hunter, Rinpoche splits hearst impact like that last year and I I was not in that your people and I'm not them now. They're in waller real. He's real next question at your boy Rick Day rich what up Girich he said, when will the Derek Carr slander stop I feel that this question is best directed towards Adam because he's the only one here who really slanders Derek Carr. This is super simple. Okay. So what has happened here is John gruden's builds an all fence around Derek Carr to arrive, and it is thriving NFL level Derek. Carr is not a good fantasy quarterback and I can prove it to the first two weeks of this season. Derek Carr is qb seventeen last year in all of twenty nineteen. What was Derek Carr qb seventeen in twenty eighteen through the entirety of the year. What did he finished as if it is qb eighteen one off that this is what he is I mean he's not anything different but what's great is they built an offense that can actually thrive around him. So he's probably going to be a more reliable weekly starter, but he doesn't. He doesn't have a big ceiling I just don't see it like from fantasy. Perfect for me. He's qb to he's a guy who has bought start potential but ultimately, I mean he is who I thought he was all along. He's a NFL journeyman now has a system that's being built around him. That's effective because they have rape playmakers and they're just four standing on the ball, which is fantastic. They keep doing that who keep producing in the. Way that he has so far, which is as high end qb to which I think is essentially what he'll always be fancy I'll tell you what I'm taking all those Derek Carr points and Scott Fishbowl all those nice cheap Derek Carr points guy that's interesting. I'm looking where he's Scott fishbowl through two weeks is that's adds a totally different format that definitely makes things. More over seventy percent completion or five hundred passing yards, four touchdowns, zero interceptions this year so far or one hundred qb rate every single week I mean the guy is just doing it all man like he's perfect for that setup for especially for Scottish zero interceptions just as beautiful thing man to beautiful thing Josh Yeah you feeling Derek are coming into the year, right? It listen Derek Carr is just he's he's so crapped on and the reality is is in this gray area of Sameness with you know. Eighty percent of the other quarterbacks in the League and win Brian Edwards and in rugs take off they're going to drag him up. It's people just want to sell the story that Derek Carr is so bad when in reality, he's just like every other quarterback in the league except for maybe four of them. Not. To mention you to Tanah Nelson Galore and then Zeh Jones week to. Know that takes.
