"Computer pick six PODCASTS. Everybody Will Brinson is out this week, but all thirty two continues me Ryan Wilson Filling in for a Willie there today we have Stephen holder of the athletic. He's going to join us to talk about the culture. You can follow Stephen. At holder Stephen on twitter and Steven thanks so much for joining us man. Yes a last year for the cult was was a little interesting. Jacoby got hurt separate that knee injury and things Singa quite as well as some people had expected, so they made some moves this off season. There was some conversation about maybe they. They might get a quarterback, but instead they traded that pick to San Francisco Thirteen, th overall offer deforest Buckner, but they got Philip rivers which i. I think is probably feels like for me. The best fit for what the colts can do you know we were talking about at some point this off season maybe Tom Brady would be that guy that that clearly didn't happen so I. WanNa Talk Start With Philip rivers. What are your thoughts on first of all him coming to Indianapolis based on what we saw last year, interlock retired she. Struggles with the injury and what that means for twenty twenty. This offense well I think we have to start where you just mentioned. Which is interlocks retirement so? They went from not thinking about. You know in the short term to two quarterback being the primary issue so. I think when you look at in that context through that prism given where they came from the circumstances the hand. The hand there were dealt. Learn a pretty good spot. Considering it ought to be able to kind of get through last year you've had. Probably, definitely one of the better backups in the NFL Jacoby percent in a borderline starter based performed, but you know it was able to at least give them a shot and then this year. They feel like they've upgraded now. The rivers is thirty eight. He isn't the same clarity was five or six years ago. I grant everyone that been I firmly believe that is true, but I do think he gives them what they're looking for, and they're looking for more big plays. They're looking for a little more aggressiveness, the offense. They WANNA score. More points and Phillips approach to the game gives them the opportunity to do those things so for all those reasons I in its totality, looking at everything. This is probably the best. You can spectacles to do into the circumstances I feel like Philip rivers in addition to some of the other moves, they may but Philip. Rivers makes his teams A legit contender in the AFC south. I don't even know that I mean yes, we know about Shawn Watson and Houston. We know about the titans, obviously what they did last year, but when you look at his offense on paper number one one of the things that felt river struggle. Struggle with was to throw the ball in point three seconds because offensive line with so bad in Los Angeles. It feels like it's so much better now we know we had playmakers around him in Los Angeles, but let me ask you quickly. How important do you think the addition of Michael Pittman and Jonathan Taylor second round picks in terms of what that means not only for fulfill it rivers, who has a huge target and Michael Pittman. Some people have compared to Mike Evans. And also Jonathan Taylor helping that running game I really like those picks They weren't pick maybe that I was predicting. I thought Pittman. New Pittman was on the radar. And we you know we knew that why receiver was was clearly one of their biggest needs didn't see Johnson Taylor I will be the first to admit that that one's done me, but the more I have sort of had a chance to let this digest I like those two bits look they are. They did a couple of executive number one. One they addressed a huge need at wide receiver that was one of their biggest problems last year. They got a ton of injuries at the position, but they also needed more juice. They're pittman gives you that pro ready prospect I don't know how what is. Numbers will be this year, but I know he'll be able to contribute in Kohl's can confidently say that I know then on the other hand. They had a running back. You had a really strong position where you had a thousand yard rusher Marla Matt. A really well rounded productive renting game in. What did they do doubled? And they went and got a big time running back a two thousand yard. Guys in receive Wisconsin so I. Really think that you know you can do a couple of things you can. You can approach your off season by not making your strengths stronger, and you can also solidified your weaknesses. Those two picks enabled them to do both and we'll see. It's all sort of hypothetical right now, but I think you're talking about to throw ready prospects, a lot of college experience, maybe a lot of mileage in the case of jogging Taylor, but but definitely someone who won't have to carry. Carry the entire load Marlin Max deal here. We'll see if he resigned, but he's now. He's here and we'll be here for two thousand twenty, so I think they have injected a lot of juice into their into their offense and rivers will have at his disposal. Things Jacoby did not last season including healthy wide receivers that they already had on roster. So I think this offense agree view. This offense positions them to really play with anybody in this division and anybody for the most part in the AFC out side of Baltimore Kansas City. I've been the elise I anybody. This this team can play with anybody in the AFC whether they get there. We'll see, but certainly I would consider them a threat to everyone the. I'm with you on that I. DO wonder I mentioned a forest bugner a few minutes ago, did signing Philip rivers overshadow that trade for the thirteenth overall pick. We know Japan. Ken Law was maybe in the conversation until the trade happening. And what does the Forest Bruckner buckner bring to this defense that has had flashes of being really good. They've gotten younger ahead. There is Leonard. Leonard two years ago when defense rookie of the year the got the cornerback last year I at a temple who end up and down year, but should be getting better. So what is buckner? Bring to the middle of that defense? I think it's the missing piece. Honestly look last year. The defense was okay. It wasn't as bad as the numbers in some places suggested. Suggested it wasn't as good in others in terms of what the numbers suggested, so I think they were kind of middle of the pack defense, but I thought they were events that the potential to be a lot more, and if you look at their first seven or eight games, they were a different team and I think we saw who saw a couple of things to. To solve the offensive struggles start to take their toll on the defense, and we saw some injuries on defense, particularly to Kenny Moore, who was just sort of a Swiss army knife on their defense. He missed the final five games. I think we just saw starts to fade, but really what I saw was a defense that was trying to overcome the lack.

"Yeah and I. I think that one up exponentially when the Stefan digs trade. Went up right for a player at the same position in like yours. Greater Currency Exchange. You Know Peter at the moment that it went down. I was trying to figure it out and that that's one of the tough things as outsiders is I remember being a part of trades or draft selections that I felt good about her stood but there were a lot of people on the outside. That didn't and moves it not only that I made that bill and I made and to me. I'm still trying to figure this one out but there has to be something else involved here at bill. Brian knows that the rest of us don't know that's what builds a very very smart football fan. Football man and I'm still trying to figure this one out too. Because he did get one of his best. Get rid of one of his best players. Maybe he's thinking about other contracts and he had to try and get what he could get now because he's going to be completing other contracts going to eat up a bunch of salary cap room. It's not one that I totally understand. Peter I think in some point in time we've got we're going to have to learn more about this to truly evaluated. Yeah I would totally agree. It seems crazy even With the with the fact that there's no question that deandre Hopkins wanted a new contract with three years left on his deal and that obviously if if if O'Brien thought that this was going to be a huge factor with his team this year and he might not have Deandra I can understand him trading him. I just hard to imagine that the best you can do is the fortieth pick in the draft but be that as it may the other trade that I thought was fascinating because I absolutely. I've got so much admiration for deforest. Buckner as a defensive tackle I think if I think obviously Aaron Donald is the best and then to me even though they're different players I think deforest buckner and Chris Jones or the next two guys at least on my list if he asks me you know. Good Young defensive tackles and football and who would I want? Were you blown away? Even though they did get the thirteenth pick in the draft in return. Rea- blown away with with with the forty niners trading deforest buckner. You know. I wasn't totally and and explain why you know several weeks during the playoffs. Actually I was on air And talking about the future of the defensive line and the defense of the San Francisco Forty niners in some of the things that they may want to do and need to do whether we're gonNA resign armstead where they're going to. You know what was going to happen with Buckner and if you look at how this team is built and you go back and you look when you're looking at the roster before the season ended they had first round picks invested in Armstead in. Solomon Thomas deforest Buckner Nick Bosa and other players that are very good players and what you have to start thinking about is the now and the future so I. I think I don't know this for sure what they're saying themselves. Okay we've got to get one of these two players extended. Who Can we get done now? Who can we get done at the best deal? So we're GONNA have money left over and then eventually move on from another one of these players. The good news. You know the news for them was. Armstead was a free agent. Buckner was still under contract so they could secure I route. You know former first round. Pick for a deal and then turn a very good player I do. They did they. WanNa move on from deforest buckner. No but the bills are about to come do off a bunch of really good players. Not only on that defense again but then think about the offensive side. You know. There's George Kill thing is going to be real before before too long so I think they were thinking much bigger picture and what they realize. At some point in time they may not be able to sign resign or extended player. Like deforest. Buckner get well we can get now and then hope that we hit it on that. Pick that we use your. I think those are your year kill. Point is absolutely on target. I know for a fact that that that has become something inside the niners. First of all they know they have to pay him and he is an absolute difference maker and with the cap going up as much as it's going to be going up in the next two or three years. Kill make a ridiculous amount of money he could make. Double Rob Gronkowski easily. And so I think you're I think you're right and then I don't know to me. It's they had an embarrassment of riches on the defensive line and these days in football today. You can't pay for defensive lineman exactly. You just can't do it you know. And that's my listeners. Left at Oh no I was GONNA say by the way left tackle. So there's other positions your term of embarrassment of riches a great way to put it Peter Scott Paoli. Cbs SPORTS NFL analyst. Really really appreciate you. Lending your insight on a busy day a busy week and what a story with. Tom Brady so thank you. Thank you Peter my.

"Severed Cisco Forty niners also made a big trade. They sent one of their blue chip. Defensive Lineman away in a trade deforest buckner dealt to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for number thirteen overall pick The writing I guess was on the wall for Buckner in San Francisco when Eric Armstead of the niners got a five year. Eighty five million dollar contract on Monday on Monday so they couldn't pay both of them. They chose Armstead so buckner goes to the colts. He's a big time. Disruptor West a guy that's Star and the colts at a major piece on their defensive line. Feels like a good trade for both sides really. Yeah I like this deal for both sides. I understand why the forty niners did it. They basically chose Eric Armstead's versatility over deforest buckner being more of an inside player and the colts. This is what they've been waiting for. You've got all that cap room. And they got criticized last year for not using it but they wanNA spend it on guys who weren't difference makers they didn't WanNA spend it on guys. They really have to a year later so now they had eighty million dollars. Cap Room. You go out and get deforest buckner. Making the second highest paid defensive player in football in the prime of his career. A Guy who has voted. Mvp by the forty niners of their super bowl team. This is the kind of guy you want to build around. And now you've got Quinton Nelson on one side. You've got areas Leonard and deforest buckner on the other side. You've got a pretty good secondary and you've got infrastructure. This is kind of deal. You can make because you're GM has created all that salary cap space and drafted so well that you don't have to press to fill holes in the draft or Free Agency. You can go get the best player available

Super Bowl LIV Preview
"Today ahead of Super Bowl. Fifty four we break down just what to expect when the Chiesa. He's the niners square off on Sunday. I mean at times it's Thursday January thirtieth this espn daily presented by Dell small business. We are on radio row right now. ESPN daily is in the back There are radio stations across America. ESPN shows everyone is at their booths. Interviewing players analysts celebrities stars. And we've got one here with us. Dominic foxworth radio row is madness. It always ban is but it's like three hundred people gets bigger and his crazier every year. Well Luke speaking of madness this game people having trouble picking the winner I think because it truly feels like the two best teams made it to the Super Bowl. I feel like I'm just GONNA. It was Patrick Mahomes. Because it's not GonNa be fun rooting against him. We'll be more fun rooting for him than against it. Let's start by talking about patching mahomes chiefs offense versus the San Francisco Forty Forty niners defense. Which is sort of the strength on strength matchup in this game? I think history would favor San Francisco because the recent super bowls elite defenses. Have come out on top. The two thousand fifteen Denver Broncos the two thousand thirteen Seattle seahawks. We don't need to talk about what happened near later. The two thousand eight steelers ninety six packers list goes on typically offense loses according to our friends at stats and Info so the niners are the sevens team in the last fifteen years to make it to the super bowl with fifty five or more sex the other six teams all won dominique. We've seen how disruptive active this pass rushes the secondary ranks near the top of the League in stopping deep passing as the linebackers fast they can move laterally. Which is the chiefs specialty with their sweeps and screens? And all that said tell me how the chiefs offense can still beat them. I mean I have never seen the chiefs. Offense actually be stopped in any legitimate way especially with a healthy Patrick mahomes and he is healthy. And that's the difference is when we've seen great defenses. Losing the Super Bowl. It's been all time great quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers one of the people who did I did not think Patrick Mahomes is obviously in that category. As far as this town is concerned. If you were the niners defense how would you defend Patrick Mahomes this explosive chiefs passing attack. So I think you have to mix it up. That's the best thing you can do. And you also have to understand that you're not gonNA stop them. They're GONNA make plays they're going to score points. But you need to try not to give a big play. Touchdown don't stress about them getting to the red zone but play well in a red zone which the forty niners haven't been doing which is scary. It's interesting right. Yeah the the niners defense ranks. Thanks near the top in most statistical categories this year. But you're right. They have been less. Efficient are actually been below average in the red zone. They've struggled to stop the run there. which cheese haven't really been running the ball lately? They've also struggled this season against mobile quarterbacks now that requires an enormous caveat which which is that D. Ford niners pass rusher at Kwon Alexander. LINEBACKER missed a lot of games during the regular season but you look performances against Cuyler Murray Lamar Jackson Russell Wilson. You saw those were the games in which they struggled a little bit more for what we've seen from Patrick Mahomes in this postseason is is an insane ability to take off the football as the leading rusher for his team and the playoffs so far and I think that he's always been comfortable with it now that his knee is gone a little bit unhealthier. He's more apt to take off. But I think that's less scary the him getting outside of the pocket throwing like I'd almost rather him try to run it for twenty yards. Because what happens win. He buys time against the forty niners. Specifically they're not traditionally man coverage team but everything turns the main when the quarterback starts to scramble like. That's your your scramble scramble roles as a defensive back or linebackers find closest guy and stick to them everything tires demand at that point in there they just frankly. The forty niners don't have the secondary speed speed in secondary and to be fair to them. No one has a speed and a secretary to run with McColl Hartman and tyreek hill specially with the arm. That Patrick Mahomes has the the chiefs are the best st passing team in the NFL or close to it. The San Francisco Forty niners are the best at defending the NFL or close to it. Something has to give live. How do you even begin to defend all of those weapons? especially if you're the forty niners you play a pretty simple cover. Three quarters mixed in there. Do you change it up. What do you do with Rick Chairman? You have to change it up. You can't survive and covered three. Andy Reid loves four verticals and with that speed and in Patrick mahomes arm strength and accuracy. He will eat you alive in the same with four verts. Would it really comes down to is pressure which is why I think that blitzing is a smart move. You WanNa make them get rid of the ball quickly and tackle but you're not gonNa do it every single time and if you give him one opportunity unity he can make you pay so you need to get the Turner was when you get those opportunities. I think they should be more aggressive than they've been and try to force them to get rid of the ball and make tackles. Yeah if there's been a weakness in this defense dominique. It's been the other side of the field for Richard Sherman originally weatherspoon more recently. They've been playing a manual. You'll Moseley a corner. He's been better but undeniably. That's an area of the field. I think the chiefs would like to target so much of the performance of the San Francisco Secondary. It depends on the pass rush getting home and you know as a former DB pass rushes the secondary's best friend a lot of the great statistics we've seen from the secondary can dairy are the product of this pass. Rush being so explosive a pass rush that turns into a murderer's row. Win The big four Defoe Award. DEFOREST Buckner Eric Armstead and it boasts are all on the field when those four players are playing their sack ratio. The percentage of drawbacks drawbacks in which they get to the quarterback jumps from six percent to twenty three percent twenty three percent of the time. They're taking the quarterback down So Eh my question to you is they've been able to get a lot of pressure by just rushing four. Do you think that they'll have success against a chief offensive line. That's probably one of the better offensive lines they faced aced. No now. It's just for. I don't think they can be able to stop him. The more I think about it in a way that you framed that I think made it very clear my mind is I think they're going to have to flush them out. You got to get him to run with the football or get them uncomfortable to get rid of the football. Because I do think that the chiefs offense line is good enough that they're not just going to get massacred. And then you put on top of it. The chiefs offense is not one that killed by a fact like most offenses. If you second now it's second and fifteen second eighteen it's over it's third and twelve. It's over over. It's not true for the chiefs offense so they can get pressured they could get a sack. Can Patrick Mahomes can make a play in overcome that so I think that the the worst thing they could possibly do is believe leave. Their Front for is going to be enough to stop this chiefs offense so far this postseason what we've seen from Patrick. Mahomes is a record performance. I quarterback in NFL history to throw for two fifty at rush for fifty consecutive games in a postseason. Do you think he keeps it up. And that's a difficult question because yes you can think he'll play well but we're talking about playing at historic level. I think he does keep it up and I think I've said this a lot in to the point where people make fun of me is that he's never had a bad game and that's one of the most mind blowing. I guess you can call it that you see from a guy who's who's just been starting for two years played a lot of games and there's never had a bad one like mediocre is the worst as you get out of them in in the big games. He's been fantastic gets thirteen touchdowns. Yeah no interceptions in his playoff career. And I know it's been said Ad Nauseam nor is why they are in Super Bowl last year because of off someone lining up offsides so like I've yet to see him shrivel into big moment he only seems to get bigger and until I see him Have a tough outing going to lean in favor
"deforest buckner" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Not just your I'm GonNa Pass. It ought that I look forward to going to the podium at media night on mundane saying you know what I wish for you all to call us the gold crush. We gotta get it passed dude aboard. What would we support? Who's the board WHO's the the entire D. Line so both of opposes not going to go with a Michigan Guy? I'm screwed unfinished. Just because it's coming from for me just won't do it on principle that that might be. That might be true but we'll see all right. How's he been neck? What's he added to this? Mix Brother He's he's he's been phenomenal You know what I mean as a young guy you forget that. He's a rookie. Honestly the way he carries himself he prepares themselves for the game I mean he's a he's a true pro and you know it's great 'cause because You know I I could still learn. Learn things from him on a daily basis. You know what I mean and you know we just like the you know run and ideas by each other. He's open book so is everybody else on the line and To to have a player like him and his caliber. You know in our group. I mean it's it's a blessing man The to have you know him and D. Eric Solomon We can go a whole list of names on the the line. You know what I mean. you know everybody is comfortable with each other and you know we can run ideas by each other and we just played for each other so is this is a group all around deforest buckner here on the rich Eisen show and now comes. What a challenge for you in front of you in Patrick Mahomes who has just a few days left as the reigning? MVP of of our league And his ability to stretch a play and then throw to virtually anybody at any point on the field. If you can't get to him in time I wonder what you think of this challenge in in front of you with him. No Yeah The guy's a superstar A He has can't afford an arm. You know really accurate of obviously consider anywhere on the field and His ability to extend plays as you know on a whole another level so you know as a group we gotta do a really good job with containing them in the pocket Kit And really getting through Murli and also rallying till you know all the screens and you know the quick game that they do so we I just need to be on our PS and QS And also just contain the speed that they have you know receiver. Obviously there. They they have a lot of weapons on the outside. And you you know I am I running back. So we have a really good overall job with containing their speed role prior to this Obviously you had Lamar Jackson in your sights earlier earlier this year and I imagine that was a challenge That I'm would you say similar to the one. I'm I'm wondering what what what you take out of that experience. It's Yeah Lamar. Obviously he's a whole another speed. I Different different playing styles. You know what I mean. There's he's more of a collegiate running back at quarterback you know what I mean is different game plan. You know especially dealing with that type of offense but I mean you could take things away with with you. Know obviously trying to contain them in the pocket and And all that kind of and in that sense so and his ability to extend play so we still similar traits rates but I feel like a different different type of player. While it's definitely the the offenses are are in different parts of our football universe in terms of of their Styles and strain and ability to put points on the board. They both can do that. They just have different methods in which to get back to that spot. I just wanted to just try just a mere aspect of when. Can you hit a quarterback or not like. Is this guy a runner were not and and and Mahomes is run at the end of the first half against brightens. It's been put in front front and center. As as the latest example of defender sender not really wondering when you can hit a quarterback or not and suddenly. He's twenty yards down the field. I wonder what you think. Yeah no exactly you know. Hopefully as he watches film throughout throughout the past two weeks leading up to the game you know you can see that with our defense or I've We're pretty fast defense. And we'd like to swarm and you know and watching. I'm watching the film. He would he would take a financial decision in running out of bounds or sliding. I love the way you just put attack you. tiptoe down that sideline yourself with your words right there that was nominal their business decisions that you and the rest of the gold crush ashforth see how I used it in a sense right there exactly. Yeah that makes sense right. It didn't it didn't sound okay So when do you when do you I guess. Get into film room. What your schedule this week can you got? We have a pretty normal week. I mean I'm watching. How many there watching watching film today? Yeah you're already there. Oh yeah they. They got it uploaded on our IPAD. So this is so exciting. I mean I I'm glad that you you and your your family or are situated already in the logistics or handled. Because that's for the twenty years. I brought close. I've done this. It seems can really turn some people around so you you know and then now you can just focus on everything. This is exciting for you. Perform let you go Justin her we saw what he did in the Rose Bowl. How effective effective you think he can be at this next level as we turn the page towards the draft for thirty other teams too far? I think he's A. He's a great quarterback. He he is the size. Is You know what I mean. he He has the legs Late talent and I mean he. He has a candidate for an arm. So I honestly think he he would do really well at this level and you know obviously hopefully A team to help them develop as a player. And you know. I'm I'm excited to see where he goes in the draft. Yeah I'm I'm I think you know He's got all the talent in the world. I just figured you know you WanNa talk about a another duct before I let you go. Thank you thank you for the time to forest. I really appreciate it. I know you got a lot going going on you spinning plates now and they're getting ready for your biggest game of your your life in your career there. Good luck in it. I hope I cross paths with the down in Miami. I really appreciate the call. I appreciate that having me again. Rich right back at you. That's deforest Buckner at deforest buckner on twitter. Love that Guy Twenty fifteen he. He and his teammate. From Oregon went ten picks apart in the first round in two thousand fifteen first round picks deforest buckner armstead instead. Go get them. Put them on the defensive line and then actually armstead was in two thousand fifteen and then buckner in two thousand sixteen and they hit them both back to back years and then buckner was taken four picks after Solomon Thomas Remember Salman Almond. Thomas was John Lynch's classmate when Lynch went back to school thornton melon and they were together in Stanford man the Forest Buckner and then Solomon Thomas. Those are three years in a row. Armstead Buckner Thomas and then boasts of the Ford. That to telling you man. That's the Super Bowl is about. What's the contrasting contrasting styles? Well what the niners can throw A to. It's just they choose not to or they decided they didn't have to or they saw that things. Were working so well I mean just when you look at San Francisco you feel like they play an old school style of football a run it really well and they play great defense that chief Sir like like a video game but the chiefs played pretty good defense to now. I mean. Obviously if you'RE GONNA be choosing a tale of the tape which teams defense do choose. Obviously obviously if you're going to choose a tale of the tape in which teams offense you're gonNA choose right you choose the chiefs right but both of them can really the maneuver the football and scheme their way into the end zone with some seriously physical players on the forty niners side of the field in terms of Kelsey Chelsea on the chiefs side of the field. The chiefs can just run right by you but you feel like the chiefs could hit a home run any play but close whereas you don't really feel that with San Francisco but they can you remember that story. Kettle said going in the week the one then I guess the the game which he had like almost two hundred yards receiving or something like that. And he's going to the week Shanahan's like you're going to score a touchdown on this play all right this week. And he did from like seventy yards out can score from any point on the field all of a sudden but I think people have question marks about Jimmy. Jean being able able to win it again. This I'm just telling you Mann's I'm formulating my story lines for the week. One I think is going to be who is is Jimmy G..

Let's overreact to Week 8: The 49ers are the NFL's best team
"I think that what we want to talk about our vise lows the NFL season so far and highs at this point are the Sansko forty niners it's the New England patriots to undefeated teams and then we want to get into Adam gays who want to get into Freddie Kitchens in WanNa get into the Chicago bears those I probably don't need to say are the lows of the nfl let's start with the great teams the teams that are that are undefeated mic Bosa and San Francisco Forty niners so this was so we talked about this last week where essentially both of the undefeated teams have been dogged by this Weirdo they haven't played anybody and eventually as maze I talked about last week eventually you know this is just the NFL they're beating up on these bad teams because there's just too many bad NFL team that's sort of the way things are going right now there's like five good teams that are quote unquote nice schedule winds and then there's twenty-seven teams who are who everyone considers inferior one AA competition Ravin said that the forty niners host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday they win fifty one to thirteen the panthers where the fifth ranked offense in the NFL all fifteen th ranked defense Nick Bosa three sacks three tackles for loss one pass break up and one interception return for forty six yards the forty niners I I I don't feel the need to say there will jit because we already knew their religion you've written about this this was the type of win that I August isn't very analytical this shuts people up oh yeah I mean this is this is what they call a statement when I think the most points they've scored since ninety three or something like that I saw that today Yup yeah type of win where if there was college they would get like twenty more first place votes this week exactly kind of win they wouldn't jump over the Patriots but it'd be getting close yeah I mean this what stood out to you when you just looked at I mean it was as complete performance you can get it turning that stood out that maybe I mentioned already I mean yeah obviously the defense I think has been the foundation that they've been operating on this year they've -pletely remade that front seven I should say the front the Front Line Nick Bosa you know changes everything default has been good deforest buckner is just playing out in elite level still Eric Armstead has been playing really really well as you know two and then I actually saw Solomon Thomas make a really good play today too I mean they've got guys they've got it reminds me a little bit of the rams of old in one sense that they spent several years of like accumulating talent and it's finding all starting to kind of click together her and their defense is looks like a juggernaut and then on the other side of the ball run game is just so dominant You know we saw we saw what they could do today. Seven Coleman really really good they've got like woman baby yeah they've got like four backs that could that could be their starter yeah they're just really really good so they they control the clock they it's such an old school method in you know it's it's funny because in the in the stage when passing is so much more efficient they're kind of breaking that rule that passing more efficient because when you can run with that level of efficiency in that level of explosiveness I mean it just you don't Oh you don't actually really need to pass that much because they've just been doing it sufficiently my favorite maybe event of twenty nineteen so far is field yates tweeted out most pass attempts prior to first career interception history number one is Dak Prescott number three was Kyle Allen after the game yeah Richard Sherman Seen this yet Richard Sherman quote tweeted that tweet which is I'm so happy to have Richard Sherman back in our lives I talked with a couple of weeks ago but just like the thing where he may be made up that thing with Baker Mayfield I'm fine with it leveraged do whatever he wants he's back in the spotlight he's GonNa Talk unquote tweet field Yates tweets about say element Mayo hundred percent on the rich German experience back to hit a piano yeah I know this is a pro Richard Sherman podcast now I think it's really interesting what happens now in the NFC obviously the Green Bay packers won tonight there are no drew breeze comes back with the saints and they look like they didn't miss a beat obviously you know teddy bridgewater is a very good quarterback while he was aperture breezes he's wearing your mind is the pecking order in the NFC and are the niners significantly above those other two teams man that's such a good question I really like The saints still I think the fact that they were able to do what they did go five zero at bridgewater and just Kinda keep going you know keep them momentum going forward I think they are still one of the favorites I would say you know it San Francisco New Orleans one and the packers just slightly below that but with the way that Aaron Rodgers has been playing last couple of weeks there certainly scary I think their defense has taken a little bit of a step back so there may be not quite as balanced as we thought they were but yeah I mean I think those are clear top three teams there's no question about that and then you could you know make arguments for the vikings or whoever but yeah I think those are like the like the cream of the crop for share in then there's a bunch of other teams speaking of the cream of the Crop New England patriots okay so the stats from the NFL the browns I can barely get throughout the browns had turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays against the Patriots that is the first time any team has done so since week one twenty twelve only the seventh time it's been done since two thousand this is not good if you're the browns we're GonNa get to the browns and are very robust stocks downs section a little bit but this patriots team unfortunately this is not kind of the schedule will win that we thought it was going to be you know the niners get there's the browns are not as good as the panthers the browns have been kind of a disaster but this was just another performance Devin mccourty looks like maybe defensive player of the year candidate the defense he just unbelievable in Baker Mayfield after the game said that the Patriots didn't do anything confuse them they were just playing really well yeah and you you kinda wonder like isn't that the worst case scenario for a team is the they're not doing anything new there just being the crap out of you I mean it was amazing when you think about this patriots defense what comes to mind yeah I think a couple of things going to mind number one discipline that's kind of a hallmark of the belichick teams is just being really disciplined like you know obviously Cliche do your job or whatever that's the first thing versatility you know they're able to play it's

"deforest buckner" Discussed on Niners Nation
"I probably feel a little bit worse. And I think it mostly revolves around the defensive where I feel about the offense hasn't really changed since Jimmy came in and did his thing. Right. Anything that's held pretty steady and I- ENTEL proven. Otherwise, we'll believe that the offense will be just fine as long as they. Shanahan and Jimmy out there. Right. So that part I feel good about in. Of course, Kittle taken a big step forward and mcglinchey playing well and his rookie year Brita playing. Well, like, I think a lot of positive things happening offensively. I feel significantly worse about where the defense is that I think going into year two you had a lot of young players that showed promise, and you were hoping you'd be able to get some of those guys that develop and kind of their players there that you you pointed to like, okay, I can see these guys being key pieces on the next. Good defense. Right. I feel much worse about that. Right now. I think like defensively there are very few players that I feel really good about. I mean, it's pretty much deforest Buckner. I feel pretty good about Fred Warner longterm. And then I mean after that like, I don't know. I think it's a lot of I don't know. I think there's cornerback is rough with Sherman was okay this year. But he's gonna get older. It's unlikely that he's going to get back to kind of elite level. I think you look at the rest of the young guys on the secondary. Just all took it pretty big step back this year. So I yeah. I think him feeling worse on that side of the ball and feeling like, you know. Things are I think going to be ready authencity in? That's why I'm feeling the kind of need to be a little bit more aggressive in really revamping. This defense pretty quickly. I would say probably feel not significantly worse. But I'm more concerned with the defensive roster talent than I am. Then I was the year before and that and that there are more questions to me is concerning because I think by your three you should have more answers and questions you start off the year one of the rebuild. And you've got a ton of questions who are we going to keep who's gonna turn over who's who's going to have to stay what do we want? And then those unknowns hopefully, get winnow down and filtered down so that by year three you should be kind of hopefully tinkering or your one or two or keep three key pieces away. And maybe that's it. I feel like we've got way more questions on defense now than we had even last year because last year, you think you thought you had your linebacker position solidified with Reuben foster youth thought you had a killer Witherspoon solidified. And maybe you bring in a free agent like Richard Sherman. But now you've got really no, no one. And I think it's you know, the talent evaluation on that side of the ball. You're starting to worry about a little bit. Because you know, the one guy that is really good right now defensively they didn't add he was already there. Right force Buckner was was a player that they inherited. So of players that you have added to the roster like which ones are you feeling really great about right now. Like, it's a very short list. And I think it might only be Fred Warner. Right. Like, that's the only guy in again, even good. But it was up and down as a rookie, right, which you would kind of expect in in the he is by no means a sure thing, especially I think if you're already pegging Fred Warner as a sure thing that you can rely on long term, you need to look at the guys that you thought that a year ago, right? The guys like Witherspoon in. I mean Reuben foster is a little bit of a different case. But guys like Adrian Colbert like players that had kind of a good. Short spurt of play there. You can't already jumped to the point where your banking on those players being kind of those core pieces that you want them to be. So I think yeah, he's still a big question, Mark..
"deforest buckner" Discussed on Niners Nation
"And maybe it's simmer down simmer down. So let's get to the next question. We had this preseason. And that was whether or not the Niners could sustain or improve their pressure rate. And this is another one much like the offense of line. Where the aero isn't trending up the Niners finished with more sacks. And almost identical pressure rate as they did in twenty eighteen now, what the hell does that mean that means that they converted well in two thousand eighteen thirty four point nine percent pressure rate, which was fifteenth in the NFL six point four percents accurate, which was nineteen twenty seventeen. They had thirty five point seven percent pressure rate thirteenth in the league five point four percents, accurate twenty-fourth. So this year they were just able to convert more of their pressures in the sax. And your remember talking in the season recap last year where we're like, okay. The pressure rate is actually not bad. What the hell what should we expect from the forty Niners next year, and the resounding ants was we'll probably just end up with more sacks, even but if they were to improve their pressure in addition to that, then we could see a huge step forward. It's no surprise that. They didn't Matt any pieces. They didn't Adam edge rusher. Turns out cash us marsh-, not the answer. And the pressure rate maintained, and they got more Saxo because they were able to they were able to convert a bit more. But to force you to forest bug. I mean, you can pretty much point to divorce Buckner almost solely as the reason for the improvement three twelve nine, and I think they ended up with what seven more sacks. I think this in the last year. So. Yeah. So even though everyone else, I think fell off you still had more of enough of an increase in deforest Buckner that to help lift everyone else. Definitely. I think it's worth noting there too that they maintain that pressure rate, even though the league wide pressure. It actually dropped a little bit dropped two percentage points this year from twenty seventeen so they were able to maintain that again, still right middle the pack. They're not too far from league average, which is where they're at overall pressure wise, which is good, right? I mean, that's not. It's not a terrible spots be like getting pressure at that rate. The sacks. Of course, you always want. Those are such a big help for your defense. They're going to convert those. But this is why we talk about. And you look at it deforest Buckner, you know, managing to get to that double digit sack total. We have them at thirteen sacks because half exer- stupid. The thirteen sacks was actually third among interior defenders only behind Aaron Donald and Chris Jones. So again, it goes back to a point that we've hammered home like for years. Now, it feels like which is if you generate pressure consistently the sacks are gonna come right saxes and outcome is largely random a lot of a lot of sacks are cleanup acts or things out of the players control. Right. You can beat a defender immediately. And if the ball gets out if the quarterback sees it, and let's go the ball. Right. You have no opportunity to make a sack. So there's a lot of things that go into that play actually ending with the quarterback on the ground that player can't control what he can control is beating the blocker in front of him. And in getting to the quarterback to have to force him to make some sort of decision. If you do that consistently. The sax come eventually now one player I hadn't thought about in a long while and as we were doing the recap it he kind of popped up, and I was like, oh, yeah. That guy Jeremiah tout you he was cut in training camp. He was supposed to be the stopgap answer at the edge position. Kind of a veteran value that the forty Niners could turn into some edge pressure the Niners cut him. And he didn't do a whole hell of a lot in New York. He ended up with twelve total pressures to Sachs, but he ended up with a pass rush grade of sixty nine and a half on the year, which puts them in the just touching the above average kind of area. Right. But this is again in spot play, right? Not as a regular starter..

"Linemen because linemen make running backs better. They make quarterbacks better than make wide receivers. Better D lineman may corners better and they make linebackers better. So deforest Buckner phenomenal pick the other one couple years ago. Maybe about a decade how about Joe Staley on the left tackle while the right tackle this year. Number six Quinton Nelson went to Indianapolis. He made the Pro Bowl out of n d as a guard, and then right tackle, Mike mcglinchey big sixty nine at a chance to sit down with them and chat up. Mike mcglinchey about his rookie year with the Niners and Notre Dame. And here was that conversation. Mike mcglinchey joins us on the Fitz and Brooks show by FitzGerald with you and. You know, rod is on vacation, Mike. So I wanted just Notre Dame guys. I was like let's get some Notre Dame love and get it right out of the way look forward to the twenty ninth for me a little bit Clemson MD you played down. And Clemson, I know you went back to the to New York for the for the game against Syracuse. So you're still keep in touch with the guys on the team. How do you see it being a playoff game? It's kind of cool. It's awesome. It's it's a great deal for our school and our team and the guy worked so are for the last couple of years now to get to this position. And I'm so proud of what they've done this year. And it's going to be an exciting went down there in Dallas for sure definitely the toughest test of the year going against the Tigers. They got a hell of a team down there. And I'm really looking forward to the challenge for the for the Irish, and and hopefully, they can get it done. How about this for Notre Dame Ronnie Stanley at left tackle Quinton Nelson left guard, John Sullivan or Nick Martin plane center Zack Martin at right guard and Mike mcglinchey at right? Tackle. I mean, the the Irish fraternity in the NFL is pretty solid. That's your continuing a tradition with a lot of quality guys. And that's got to be something to be proud of. Yeah. We've done it. We had a really good running there over the last six or seven years, or so, and you know. Obviously Sullivan didn't play when we were when I was there. But that Ronnie, Nick and Q all did. And we're very very close friends and grew up together there at school and tribute everything we have to, you know, be a line Costa Rica, they will be played for for for the six years that he was there. So when you look at being a rookie in the NFL, we just had Joe Staley on the show about a week and a half ago, and he really was complimentary of you, and that you said, you know, I didn't think I would enjoy being around a rookie this much. I didn't think I would develop such a friendship with Mike is quickly as we did. I didn't think that a young guy would care about footballs much as I do mean. Tell fans about you. And Joe Staley because we were laughing early on. We saw you training camp and early in the season. You know, hey, you're kind of Joe shadow and isn't as cool that these two tackles and two guys actually coached by Brian Kelly would hang out a little bit. But it's gone beyond that where you guys really have developed a friendship share that a little bit with us. Yeah. I mean ever since the day. I got your job has been awesome for me, and obviously in the football room, and and the whole world of of playing in the NFL, Joe is very experienced at it. And you know, guided me along the way this first eight months of my of my NFL career and over that time, we've obviously gotten very very close we spend every day together, and guys that are, you know, come from similar backgrounds think about football, and and life the same way, and it was pretty easy to make that transition from a guy that I looked up to a friend. You know, what's interesting. I knew this Joe when I had him talk about it. But you know, he was a tight end and Brian Kelly kind of said, hey, you know, I see you as a tackle. And I see you the same way. Whereas like, wait a minute, you hell of an athlete, but more suited to be a tackle. Which is where the real athletes go on the old line. Is that a natural transition not just for you guys in general? But it's a high school tight ends have a chance to be online tackles or Kittle is a monster. As a tight end. I don't know if we can put too much weight on George, but is that a natural football transition. I think so I think you just put guys I think more than anything is about what your mental makeup is. I mean at this level, everybody's athletic. Everybody has that chance. And and guys that get to this level. Obviously have all that. But what separates people to make that transition is the way that they go about their business and the way that they play football. And I don't think it's necessarily tight ends in general. But it takes the right type of guy to have that certain blend of of work ethic to know that coming from inside. And you're probably not lighter or you're probably a little lighter. You don't have a lot of sides to you. So that transition you gotta take a lot of work. And and you have to be able to make a guy that's willing to do the work and then accelerate after he's done the draft. We do show down at the Niner facility. We're talking to Mike mcglinchey was the number one pick on the fence and Brooks show. You know, what I told people's I said, look this guy was a two time captain and Notre Dame. He played hurt in the ball game doesn't want people to know about that. But I know for fact that he did. Did and where I loved this year. And I know you have a lot of plays that you'll think about but to me Mike it was the fifty five yard touchdown run and your fifty yards downfield clock and a dude at the five to make sure most or can get into the end zone. That's Mike mcglinchey to me. That's that's what running downfield. And I know you and Nelson did it N D to pick up your running back major make sure nobody takes cheap shots around the pile. When online are running fifty yards down the field. Those are the guys that I wanted my team where does that come from? Where does that leadership? Where does that? Hey, I'm playing to the whistle. Every play where do you think that became part of your DNA? I think what I got Notre Dame. I think that it was either play that way or you weren't gonna play, and we took a lot of pride and being able to, you know, be the engine that made our team go, and and obviously at all that hot all the right qualities and the way that I was raised for my family, and and and people that helped me help shape me in high school and all that kind of stuff. But that was the way the Harry he stands out of play football. And I was the only way to do it according to him. And and I believe it, and I think that if they. It's a it's a challenge for guys you give that kind of effort, and I it's a challenge for guys to to show up in work. No matter what every single day, and that's what we did every single day. And we wanted to be the strength of our team. And and when everybody looked to what the offense alignments doing. They knew that they could count on us, and we were going to be the example that sets pretty entire team. Although Staley was taking a little cheap shoddy said in a fifty yard dash, you'd still have the legs on you. I mean is is is that actually true. Or is that just an old guy who's talking on a young guy? No, I think that's probably still true Joe is a sprinter in high school. He didn't play a real sport like basketball. Like I did. So. He wasn't. He wasn't coordinated enough to hold a ball in his hand. So we just learned how to run really fast. Hey, give us an idea of the transition as a first year NFL guy. I mean is it. Wow, new area. I gotta get a house. I got away word. I get a car. How do I hook up the cable all that? It's just what's been the interesting part maybe on and off the field about being a professional athlete now as you move in kind of fulfill a lifelong dream. Well, I think definitely opposite field like all the stuff that you just hit. It was a very very quick transition from a college kids all of a sudden, I'm a I'm a homeowner. I'm a I I have a car all that kind of stuff, and and have to do very grownup stuff very very quickly. So that was the weirdest thing for me. And in terms of on the field. I think it was all just mental just getting over some mental blocks of who I'm playing what level I'm planning at trying to impress too many people too early. I think is is a is a problem that I came across when I was when I was starting out this season and oppressed too hard and didn't let things happen naturally. And and and and work for them. The way that I should have. And I think that settled in after a couple of weeks here and just started stacking games together. Which is which is what you wanna do. You wanna get better every time you get on the field. And I and I think that I've done that so far this season. Now, how did you always here for in basketball? They'll say, you know, the game slows down or baseball and football. Okay. Wait. I I'm getting a feel for for the game. Did did you eventually when when you just said starting to stack good games together? Did you did you mind kind of say, look, I played Georgia and Stanford and NC state in Michigan state and Clemson and Miami like they're not parachuting guys in from Mars like I'm playing the same played at a high level. And here we are on the NFL, but I belong here. I can do this is that where the confidence came or what what's slowed the game down and allowed you to just kind of be yourself after a couple of weeks. I think that's exactly what it was. It wasn't a matter of thinking about who. Oh, I played or where I came from or anything like that. But it's it's just something that you do the same thing every day is an alignment you work at your craft and you work for it for a long time. And it's just a matter of mentally trust in yourself, and knowing that you you were picked to the forty Niners is the first round pick for a reason that you earn that and go and show it and go perform every Sunday. And that's all you can do is just forget about all the pressure and all the hype around what goes on in the NFL because there's a lot of it and just go back to the basics and play football. Mike mcglinchey with us on the Fitz and Brooks show with you. And so here was the funny part because I I didn't have a side bet on this. But it didn't surprise me. You get your by week. Right. And this is when guys try to get to Hawaii guys want to go to the ocean. They want to be out in the sun. And you take a six hour flight each way to go to Yankee Stadium to watch Notre Dame plays Syracuse in thirty degree weather. Now what it didn't surprise me? But to Mike I mean, there's a love for. School in teammates there. It's pretty awesome. Did you had you have that plan? Or did you just say, screw it? I got the bye week. I'm gonna go watch the Irish Yankee Stadium. I definitely had it plan. But the Irish didn't take all the credit for that week. That wasn't the only reason I went home. So New York, I'm from Philadelphia, right? And it's only about an hour train ride from home. So I went home to see my family that week. And it just so happened that the game lined up that way. So obviously all that stuff is true. I love Notre Dame with all my heart and all the guys back there..

Anyway, after he was headed that gas mask gas mask on. Yeah. Is he good down there? You don't have a lot about them. They're three and Miami. I know they are going to be one of your picks this week. The patriots. About. Stay away from that one. Oh, no. No. No. No. I don't wanna go Miami. I love plus was plus nine and a half. Here's what I wonder about the patriots. And I I should ask this John Clayton is this is this feel like because there's going to be a year where it's it. Yeah. This kinds of this kind of feel like they don't have any weapons on. And I don't know if Edelman solves everything Josh, Gordon. He helps. Josh Gordon's, pretty good. That's a pretty good receiver core, bro. But doesn't it feel like they still feels like it's the and I'm not rooting for it to be the Ohio. Well, I am. But I am saying this. I'm not saying it because I wanted to be the end saying it because it feels like different listen, they may still make the playoffs, but they could be one and done. And then it's over. Yeah. Yeah. I'm not saying they're going to be six right, right? But if they win the Super Bowl this year. Hell no now with that Team New Alaska change new marks in recent ninety four WIP HD one Philadelphia broadcasting away from RTC cake studios were in the novacare broadcast booth. Yes. Phillies last weekend. They'll take on the Braves tonight. They will have something to say with say about who wins though, they will still believe that knee in. But the the ballot check Brady they were fighting all season. Now, you're finding out that Brady more or less threatened to retire. If they trade gronkowski gronkowski city. We're retire. Anyway before. The detroit. So they were ready to trade him. Yeah. Take away another one of their weapons. Yeah. Amendola. I am convinced Bill Belichick tried to sabotage, Tom. Brady's two thousand eighteen season. Forget Jimmy Garoppolo trade. I'm just going with that conspiracy theory. It sounds better makes more sense to me Bill. Ballot. Check traded away every weapon Tom Brady had look at the evidence. He's a forty one year old quarterback when you want to go all keep the west trae gronk. Yeah. Yeah. He tried to sabotage. It's only way there's only weapon let's go to John sabotage the Super Bowl. Oh my God. You're not kidding. Yeah. And that's another thing with it. It's like the whole teams is kind of sick of his BS and south southwest Philly. Hi, john. John. Hi, I'm I'm calling to support marks on. I kinda have your view on this quarterback situation. All right. Not to the western quarterback. But did escape ability that ability wrong we've seen him? Randall Cunningham down. And Michael Vick. Ultimately, that's how you get it done. You need a guy that's going to get that ball downfield into the hands of playmakers. That wins. It. Which is exactly what they did. With Nick foles. Let us not John. What did Carson Wentz do for thirteen games while he was throwing for thirty three touchdowns say that again what did Carson Wentz do? Oh. Season. Animal. I know neither Jared Goff. Nor Carson Wentz knows what it feels like to win in the postseason. But let's see another thing. I'm not trying to argue that the golf or. But it's a it's a team game. That is key. And now the running out of best team in football. Because you've got a guy that's dropping dodge into the hands of playmakers. Getting the ball down field. Okay. About scrambling out of the back. John. Let me ask you some John. Let me ask you some watts that you and my partner keep trying to paint Carson Wentz as a running quarterback. Like, why do you continue to try to diminish? His affective miss from the pocket. If he can't do this from the puck, but you have to do it. And not only did it last year. I'm talking about you have in order to win the big game. You have to get to the big game. Which he had neither. I dare golfing get hurt. Dot gov lost. He lost in the playoffs at home. The sixth-seeded Atlanta Falcons. Did they not happen? I was wondering did that have. I'm not going to speak for Johnson. But I guess John don't even know what he's really well. I guess what? I what I was saying with the I'm trying to diminish him what he's able to do in the he's not a running quarterback. But that's what it sounds like you're trying to paint him as if all he does run the football. And he can't play the game from the pocket. I would say he more than has the ability to play the game from the pocket. Agreed. And he only runs out of necessity. He doesn't run like Michael Vick. Who ran because that's what he was comfortable doing. That's what Randall Cunningham did. That's the difference. With Carson Wentz. He runs out of necessity. Agreed because he's under duress not because he can't read a defense. Not because he doesn't know where to go with the football. Like that's just an added weapon of here's I mean, it's not his fault. He can't stand there. While Nelson is trying to get opener while Paul Perkins slash Joshua. Perkins is trying to get open like he's not gonna stand there all day at some point. He has to get out of the pocket or he's looking right. I mean, I I guess what I was saying with it. It's not just that the Jared Goff is the better. He's the he's the better we talked about this before. But he's just a more accurate quarterback. Carson wentz. Just doesn't have the same accuracy or they're not just they're just different quarterbacks. I think that's all it is difficult about Carson Wentz. Could do a lot more with a lot less? He's shown that it is career so far Jared Goff. Looks like a superstar where he has a stacked offense exactly the green. Exactly. So that really makes them my case because one has a more complete skill set. Right. If you're going down skill sets attributes who ends up were more boxes. Check. Act on their side. But the passing parts higher with Goffin. I'll take that. I'm just asking you who ends up with more boxes checked on their side. Carson wentz. Okay. He can do more. Okay. He could do more. Absolutely. He can. And by the way in five years. Carson Wentz will be even that much better of a of a like being in the pockets knotted a negative for Carson Wentz at all. Hell no, not at all. In fact, at the line of scrimmage when he's reading stuff you'll see frequently during a game. We're hold check down the Iran. And it was it was the right place it passes he's making. It's just that. He's reading he's diagnoses check into a run into works. He's he's I love Carson Wentz. He's a great. He's a great quarterback. I I guess it's just what I would say. I would have Carson Wentz because when things break down he can still make a plate. If things don't go perfectly for Jared golf. He's in trouble. He can't throw on the run of sure he can. I mean, we're not would freak. He's on. He's on allusive. Like, exactly so trouble. I mean, go back and look at that playoff game forty five forty eight sometimes only completed twenty three passes like if he doesn't have a clean pocket. We can stand in their guys are wide open. Then what can he do like you got more options? Available to you. With Carson Wentz. Not everything needs to be perfect. Like it needs to be for Jared Goff to AT park. What's up? AT was good, man. So man. The only one that bowl. Y'all got me stirred up with this whole Jerry goals thing. I mean, basically, you gotta give credit to the Rams McVay rule. Smart, man. He he he. But understood you need other facets of the game comma position chip Kelly would evolve this that's not the players. He wanted basically golf like Nick foles to me like when we're hitting his mouth, you just don't interceptions wasn't looking at his first season. He so he'd have been officially a great system. I'm not taking do got talent. But he was way better than any reclose for four yards open man watching it like every time I receive a three or four yards opened with this until we offer you gotta give scheme like he's he can not the one throw last night. I saw now that throw on the until we all to his right was awesome. That's awesome. Man. That's a major league door. And that's why I said you could give him his props as one of the best quarterbacks in the league. One of the best young quarterbacks in the league. That throw. I'm just saying the winter winds wagon is just better. Nice. But west west take nothing, but he more like a Rogers man what's coming up in the mold of Rogers. Well, you just he just an animal man, like we'll go if you're doing what he's supposed to do you guys? Three dollars open commit? You got speed everywhere. Right. Branding. Eighteen. Did they score in the more with Carson dragging the team down the field? Like you're saying we will get on track. We get up to like probably like twenty seven twenty four twenty twenty seven thirty one points. We we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna be conveyed. I like it. If somebody hands McCaffrey. Yeah, he was wearing a top lawns. Have a great week. Gosh. Thanks. Yeah. The way. Oh, by the way, the white boy wide receiver resi I haven't even I I'm waiting until Christian McCaffrey becomes a Pro Bowl running back me to come back and just start roasting. Everybody who said that I was crazy for warning Christian McCaffrey. We why was that? Why were so many people against hate and Christian McCaffrey? I don't know. I know he's a damn good back twenty carries last week. Yeah. Wow. Well, buck eighty four I never thought that eighty four. I never thought that he was going to be that high of a frequency guy. I thought fifteen to twenty. Yeah. I was shocked. I gave him the ball twenty eight times. Yeah. So she would they think of the wide receivers. Don't wait waiting for him to make the Pro Bowl this year while he's well on his way..
"deforest buckner" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA
"Ten fifty WT K a ticket, right? He's got two receivers left one right tight end. Twin Lolo tight to the line. Right side Matthews. Got it goes inside. Handoff to Johnson. Johnson fighting port knock it again. It got down to the forty seventy yards shy. Deforest Buckner led a big game at opening week made the stop in the lions are gonna come up empty. Yeah. That was a great job. San Francisco discount a string in the play out. And again, Dan with our play call and you look at them bring Kimmy golladay down inside. So you could Kevin know that we're not going to run the ball his direction kind of noise going the other direction. So this could be some things we mix in there and mix up. Sam Martin DuPont, fair catch called for may ten yard line. Forty Niners will take over right there. Sandberg's the law firms the official legal team to the Detroit Lions radio network. If you've been in an accident. Call one eight hundred call Sam. Which soon sets up to the left side, they give it to Breda over the right side. Big bowl twenty three to twenty five breed it to the thirty carrying attacker across the thirty five and out to the thirty eight yard line. T's taper went for a ride that time last six or seven yards teased went for a ride ends up being a twenty eight yard game. You can see the forty nine dollars come out of big splits. Basically what they're trying to do is just create lanes for the running back to run through. They were able to get stick stick on their blocks hit the running back to the next level. And you're right tease was only one another bring them down. Big miss tackle global Quinn there as well. I intend Niners now from their own thirty eight they give it to Alfred Morris. Doing stacked up right at the line of scrimmage might have gotten a yard or two. Good work upfront by the lions that time led by Sylvester Williams. And that was a very good play by slot again taking care of the backside running backs one. The look the cutbacks lie was right. Then the gal got two yard second down at eight nine years. Go straight to the line going up tempo. Shotgun snap to Garoppolo wants to throw pumps once. Now rolls to his right down deep in the secondary. Garoppolo's gotta keep it and run out of bounds at the forty five yard line. Gate of five per Garoppolo. If it stands quandary digs over there to escort him out. But let's find out about that penalty. Normally when they come deep in the secondary doesn't bode well for the defense. Let's find out. Sean hockey referee before the quarterback left the pocket illegal contact defense. Number thirty one. He added to the end of the ride I out t's taper off to a bit of a rough start ball for the penalty there at a tough time. Getting Matt Brita down on the opening run by the forty Niners as well. And then from what I've noticed watching film on the forty Niners Jimmy likes use this feet by time. So we're gonna have to really odd. Secondary's don't have to really be cautious of him trying to get through Cevers deep Niner time Niners with a first down for midfield heat back in an offset is Morris. They faked the gift to him. Garoppolo wants to throw does keep wide open crossing it the thirty inside the twenty yard line down to the fifth to dock tape Pettus. Dan, when you got these clauses routes when you got these the crossing route it takes time to let that guy come across. Again, we can't let him get comfortable and stand back, Dan, give them time. You don't have to generate some type of pass rush on them. Or he's going to hurt us all game long. That's a thirty five yard gain. So far in this drive had a run for twenty eight and a completion for thirty five. Niners now knocking on the door. First and ten from the lion. Fifteen Deepak in an offset is warrants. They faked the gift ahead. Garoppolo wants to throw does and just out of the reach of Cato and there's a flag digs in coverage in the end zone. They may get him for a penalty. We do kiddle was going to be alone in that big size. Miss. Lovie number twenty five yard penalty automatic. I now boy you get kid allowed there who checks it at six four to fifty against quandary digs who's five nine two hundred. That's a big mismatching of the forty Niners that time he was able to draw the penalty, and it's going to be first and goal from the ten now for the Niners and look for that all game long look for that match up. I think they feel good against the lions linebacker, and they feel good against somebody in the secondary. Seattle is a big target for Garoppolo. He wants to throw again on first down with a lot of time. Now, it's gonna get hit. Davis got him back outside the fifteen yard line. That's a play this defense sorely needed back at the eighteen for a loss of eight. Yeah, you're right. That is in the game that we had to generate pressure. Bob Rangan Jared Davis. But that's what we're going to have to do. We cannot let Jimmy Garoppolo dick comfortable like we let Sam darnold did last weekend cashback sack. Brought to you by DMC. You financial the cash back credit union. Coverage led to that sack. Good work in the secondary allowed Davis tied to get home. Second goal from the eighteen for Garoppolo sets in the pocket. Get sacked again outside the twenty five this time that bringing the rest that time divide. Just a straight physical moon about the volcano. Then basically wall. There was just win awhile uses speed to get around the offense attack tackle put great personal Jimmy Garoppolo. And that was a big big sack for a loss of nine. It's gonna bring up third and goal from the twenty seven. Garoppolos gonna work out of the gun. He's got Brita to his left. Third and goal for the Niners with the lion. Twenty-seven? They go inside. Handoff debris that he's taken down immediately by Canard. Right at the line of scrimmage. No gain. That's good work by that defense Niners that if I gold up to ten and the lions put them in reverse. Devon has been coming up big force last week had a nice game against the jets. But again, his I think his energy out on the field for our defense. I think is key for our defense his energy along. Robbie golden for the field goal to tip forty five yards. Trying to give the Niners the early lead. Snap spot. Kick away. Eat is up and it is good the forty Niners lead. It that is twenty seven in a row. Dharavi goal is three nothing. San francisco. Six eighteen to go first quarter. This is the Detroit Lions radio network. All right. Welcome to f one fifty radio call from Georgia. Chad what's shaking in making? I know they did it again, man. Who are they? And what did they do man? And f one fifty engineers, I know that as usual they.

Now, it's Murph and MAC on six eighty and streaming live at K n B R dot hat to good Tim Ryan as always delivering, hey, you know, my Irish buddies asked I did the Irish podcasts second captain shot up to the second captains. And they were asking me they said are people really actively turned off by this sort of the movement towards the lack of tackling and all that stuff Nelson. Yeah. It's a problem for the NFL. Isn't it this whole concept of this? You know, what to do with themselves anymore? I mean, something that would be a routine play your approach as a defender on a ball carrier. I think he instinct takes over certain point. It's affecting you as a viewer as Sumer of the product. I would imagine it probably will this year because it can be a lot of controversial calls on. What would have normally been considered just a routine hit? Now, everything's going get analyzed to the point where we're we're we're unsure as to what the proper technique is. Or was this guy coming in intentionally hot? And he tried to lower shoulder. It is going to be very confusing with the NFL starting on Thursday. I mean, like they were asking me, what are the big stories in the NFL has a, well, you know, Khalil Mack it and traded. Tom Brady's doing his thing again. But really, it's you know, is Trump is Trump gonna go after the anthem thing. Again, we've got midterm elections coming up. They're gonna be stoking camper. Nick with Nike is going to be a similar thing that like what we talk about baseball all the time and it massive change in the game. And how it's affected the product the way, we Murphy you, and I will we mentioned it with Syndergaard, right? He threw his first complete game of his career bad asses. Remember when pitchers used to do that, Murph? And I talk about this all the time. I think we're going to have not going forward is. Hey, do you remember when you used to be able to hit the quarterback Montana won four Super Bowls back in the era when you could knock a quarterback on his a and in this era? I it seems like they're going to get more and more protection. Well, Tim Ryan just kinda Chris Haagse? Yeah. Said we're gonna call run into the quarterback in high five I'm looking for. That's a sad looking for deforest Buckner to get a few hugs of Kirk by the way on a much lighter note. Did you hear him slip in nine one and said the same thing did you hear attempt tip is hand about Friday song? He says he's very eager, but he said tribute to Minnesota. But that doesn't I can't tell where he's going to go, right? Lemme he could. But he's a rocker not the Princeton. Crazy. Let's go crazy. I got a problem with prince fully me if he does it that's fine. But I expect something a little more spice for a little more guitar a little more distortion for eight says Khalil Mack will will now be giving bear hugs. Get it. Not if you just right now, but anytime of his life wasn't what you might call an altar rocker. No, no, no, all wrong. Maybe some who Skar do out of Minnesota rose replacements here. Listen, there's a band called sonic youth at a Minneapolis. Yeah. Yeah. Seven zero seven says how about putting some flags on the quarterbacks waste. We know. It's funny like for kids. Now, there's a real movement in suburban America flag football is the thing. Our kids are signing up by the thousands. And it's not I mean we played flag football too. We're growing up organiz flag football. But now, it's like this kind of next level organization and all that. So that's what's going on, man. So I don't know. We'll see one of the stories going in. All right. We're going to get the clock right here. We've got some fun stuff going. I didn't never got that NFL dot com. Preview. I wanted to hit you with about the they asked their pull their panel of Twenty-one experts to and you know, what man I'm no, I'm no expert. So I go to people who I think are experts and these are people who are predicting what's going to happen in the league. And all that and dude in the NFC west there was only one division where it was unanimous, bro. Unanimous who they picked was gonna win. And it was the NFC west. They all took the Rams well deservedly twenty one Twenty-one people. Yeah. Rancher damn good and asked one of the voters, Mike Robinson wide. He said on paper LA might have the best team in the NFL. Hey, man, nothing. Shock me at this point. And again, they won the division last year. They were a playoff team, and I would expect them to do improve even more. So that doesn't that does not surprise me at all. Peter King took the Bengals to win that division and in the AFC east. I take it back. There was one other unanimous pick. It wasn't just the Rams. It was your Polly. I emphasize yours and Chris Shaw's New England Patriots. Right. Right. So surprised there? Don't sleep on the Bengals. That's what Peter King. He took them. Take the over on the wins. Nobody in the twenty one panel even gave them a vote now one vote, but that's your pick to win the division. I liked them. Go to the playoffs this year. Yeah. I do I like their defensive line. I think Jeremy Jeremy hill the batch mixing I'm sorry.
