Ipc we'll be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with brandon krisztal. I want everything i want. All the meatballs happy wednesday broncos country. It's hot day brought to back on the practice field today. Man rick lewis to chat yesterday and then my schedule dictate that. We weren't able to actually monday his work than mine but we got together. So rick lewis coming up here in just a little bit. The broncos color analysts always a good chat great inside about the team because he calls every single game. He's in your four of doing that but today was all about drew lock. Would we see him what we not. So vic fangio met with us be video conference before practice every week at sort of changes but the league came down on in a memo this afternoon and said on saturday. everything's going to intensive protocols. Here's a good thing. If you're a denver bronco broncos fan with how they operate but certainly a denver bronco specifically they've been operating in intensive protocols for the better part of a month after curtis motzkin tested positive. So because of that there are two used to working remotely. Most of the time going in just having practice and going right back following the protocols To the letter of the law very stringent in the building and even though we've seen all those positive cases what we haven't seen is anything widespread. They've all been isolated. We also found out today from alexander. Johnson that defense coordinator had dental had been hospitalized and that they were praying for him. But he's already back out of the hospital and and doing a lot better he. he's still has been participating in zooms but we didn't know for a fact that he had tested positive. All we knew was that he was in the kobe protocols. You can do the quick math and say well. He's been gone for about three weeks. i think. Give or take maybe even a little longer and so you don't do that if you're just following protocols because he came in close contact clearly. He tested positive but they've been they've been following these procedures already so this will not be a big change for them. Bradley chubb told me last week that he he likes working from home because he's roll out of bed. And then google or get into meeting go to the facility for practice and demarcus walker said yesterday that he also likes it he said i can eat my breakfast and then get kind of worked up for practice and then head over to practice. So they're gonna follow those protocols league but the broncos are already ahead of the curve. Baxter drew lock. We were told by vic fangio while. Here's what vick said before. Practice as far as what we would see from drew right now. We're not sure they'd be limited or not. He's gonna out there and walk through. We'll see how it feels. Indeterminate from there. So definitely the best would be limited pastorino practice so it ended up being the ladder. He was out there. He had his helmet on but didn't go through stretch. We only get to see about the first twenty ish into practice after stretch. Maybe less depends on special. Teams period is during special teams of quarterbacks come are aligned right now closer to us and they just kinda run sideline to sideline and throw the ball to each other along Yard line just to warm up. Then they went into the end zone and you had guys that. Don't play special teams. Jerry jeudy was out there. Maybe a couple of their offensive players. With the four quarterbacks drew was taking a snap from an equipment guy. Faking a handoff in play action and then throwing the ball if you were going through the throwing motion without letting go of the ball and then they go to individual period after special teams. The three quarterbacks are warm-up taking snaps again for a guy drew locks off to the side just going through his own stuff. So i assume that he didn't get any snaps because we didn't seem stretching if you're not going to stretch you're probably not gonna participate in any of the team stuff. Here's what vick said about his progress and whereas injury is he's made good. Progress said monday morning till wednesday morning. We'll see how how much e to change is to make the progress throughout the week can see where he goes and again specifically. What is the injury. Bruce strain you know sudden to that fact nothing now. Nothing's broken or anything tonight. That was all before practice that he's making progress or any of that. All of that happened before practice. Means that they like where he's headed. I guess but we still got a ways to go. If brett rippin goes i think the broncos will still be fine. We've seen brett's decisiveness. It might do drew a bit of good to have the week off and just recovering that something. Lewis and i are going to get into. Let's jump to that right now with The doctor of radio himself before you to ric though. I want to tell you about chuck water chilly we know the weather is starting to turn the moral great time to stock of us from chug water. Chillers water dot com promo code chug water. Bk to save twenty five percent chug water chilly. It's the spice of western life. So here is without further ado. Every morning six tonight on the morning show night at noon on logan lewis on. Koa rick with morning show of course on the fox where he's been on the masters of the universe for over thirty years the gold standard of morning radio denver and he has color analyst of your denver. Broncos broncos radio network my pal rick lewis. Well rick. I was out at broncos practice today and didn't see drew lock do anything wearing his helmet. He didn't go through stretch. Then we got to see when the quarterbacks are starting to warm up during special teams. He didn't do that. He did hand off. Fake play action. Handoffs debris rippin and then do the throwing motion but not. Actually the ball go then. They got into individual work. Once the team broke out a special teams he just stood. There ended his own footwork stuff while the other three guys threw the ball so as it sits here on a wednesday afternoon. If i were to tell you to go to your favorite betting site fan duel or my favorite betting site draftkings. Would you bet. Drew lock plays based on what we know. And i'll add to this vic. Fangio said he wants them to practice some this week He doesn't want to go into the game without any practice. Res- i'm gonna say no i'm gonna say no. He doesn't play this week. It was obvious calling the game on sunday. That not only was he getting beat up He was hurt You could see him grimace when he'd get up off the ground Greatness teeth at some at some point he was limping. We we couldn't tell what kind of injury add because for a while. He was limping a another time. He was like his ribcage and apparently he doesn't have broken ribs. He's got a severe strained oblique. And if you've ever had that it's pretty debilitating especially for quarterback. I would think it's going to make it pretty tough for him to come back this week so i will say no. He will not play this week. And we will see the return of brett rippin. Yeah and the last thing. We celebrate rippin. It went pretty well. That was the jets before before we moved to burbano about lock's injury i will say dave did keep commenting on i. I guess it's toughness you weren't you weren't saying that that he wasn't being taught you were just saying man. This kid must be tough because he looks hurt. You just kept commenting on. How bang w looked during the game. Because that i was in the same thing and he stuck it out. I guess the real question is should he of or should he. Maybe said hey. We need to get bread in here. I adrenaline changes things versus the next day. And actually he talked to you guys on monday. Do you think he downplayed. How sorry was 'cause he did it. I've listened to the bite. I use updates. He he said you know you wake up with things and it's more than you might have thought or that you didn't know you had but he didn't seem to say like oh. This is going to be a couple of weeks. no i do think he downplayed it No doubt about that and he definitely a tough guy because he battled through that game Sunday not only physically but mentally So he's getting beat up physically and mentally. He's beating himself up. You know with the the four interceptions that was brutal for him. You know i love to play amateur doctor. And i can't help myself so i always try to amores trying to figure out what's going on With guys get injured in. Like i said we were having a tough time trying to pinpoint dave loves playing amateur doctor to by the ways you know we were having a tough time pinpointing what. What's going wrong here. What's hurting him. And you know now that we know it's an oblique that makes sense. Because he was. He was holding clutching his ribcage. One time when he got up off the ground grimacing. he was in a lot of pain and discomfort. I'm not sure if that affected the way he was throwing the ball. Sure it would be a great excuse to say that you know he wouldn't have four interceptions If he wouldn't have got the injury. But i know he would never play that card. So i'm not gonna do it either but he did play hurt. I don't think you wanna put him up. There hurt on sunday against a good dolphins defense. That is a lot Mean he's got his hands full right. Now i i i really think that A week off would really do him. Some good not only physically but but also mentally just kind of take a little break you know. Step back Think about some things. Watch watch the game. See how unfolds it see if he can get in a better place and and that's the thing to vic fangio said that he sat plenty. There's a difference between sitting in for the rest of the year and said hey you sit back. Sit back and watch. Especially when the quarterbacks in front of you are either brent ribbon jeff driscoll. I guess they could throw blake bortles on their if they wanted to put him back on the active fifty three but to your point sitting for a week and just recovering and taking a step back taking a deep breath and just evaluating everything in letting the game slow down again a little bit i. I'm right with you. I think that it could help. And we know what a big brett rippin supporter he is. Guys are super close. He felt bad for taking his start in new england. So maybe this'll be his chance to to repay him a little bit to to just stay on the on the shelf for a week. So rippin does go. What do you expect to see based on always against the jets and what we've seen from this team here in recent weeks. I actually think we're going to see a better bread rippin than we saw against the jets as you remember. He had no practice time for that game. That was thursday night game right. And i doubt if they had any real practice. Now they didn't they didn't they had. Yeah they fly to new york on wednesday so a full week Practicing with the ones this week i think will really benefit him and he's had time to step back as well and continue to study and take mental reps. Try to figure it out. There's a lot to like about brett. And i'm not saying. He's your future quarterback but i think brett ripping is going to be around the league along time Certainly a backup role. I think brett rip and could be a great backup for this franchise for many many years. As you know be k. Good backups they can have a twelve fourteen fifteen year career. Make a whole lot of money. they never get really beat up. You know if you can go in there when you're called win a football game you can do this for a long time. I'm not sure if he is a number one. Starting quarterback caliber yet franchise quarterback. I don't know. But i think at this point i. I'm i'm pretty comfortable saying that. He could be a back up in the league for longtime chase daniel who is now on your home town. Lions has made in his career to this point through this season. Thirty seven million dollars. Detroit has two more years and nine and a half million if they wanna pay him and i'm doing this. I can quickly pull up jase daniels stats. But so thirty seven million county could be upwards of almost fifty million dollars. I know he's just one example. Tod collins another one. That stuck around forever. But with before. I pull it up how many. How many passes do you think jay's daniel has thrown in the nfl here in in a decade so he's saying your career. He did start some games early until they found out that he wasn't he wasn't gonna cut it as a starting quarterback so this is your eleven. This is year eleven year eleven. How many passes thrown how many passes has he thrown in eleven thirteen. So far this year okay. I'm gonna say he's thrown five hundred twenty seven. You're off by almost three hundred. He is thrown in his career. Two hundred thirty one. He is well. He is two and three as starter. He has eight touchdowns against six picks. And like i said has made thirty seven million dollars by the end of the season and right now the lines are on the hook for an or the contract says the pam him four and a half and five if he sticks around he may not. But it's going to work if you can get it. And so that's a lot of an exercise to say what we're ripping can be. But i think that's exactly how we can be. You know. I was told. And i think we've talked about this but i was told by a member of the broncos coaching staff last year that he and locker so close he can see them. Being a lot has a lot of this falls on lock more than brett the elway to rippin the kubiak two locks elway and they could beat teammates for eight years like like we saw with with john and gary were. Gary was the reliable backup but was never really pressing john or pressuring. You know for that gig. You just knew that. If john banged up in a game. Gary could come in execute the game plan and then when john's ready to go he's right back in there. I could definitely see that you know and as you said it's it's more on drew. Lock to make that happen that brett and i think brett rep is going to be around here for a while. In ribbon does some things better than drew. Lock at this stage of both of their careers. He's he's more accurate fact. He's he's a pretty damn accurate passer. He doesn't have the armed drew. Lock has but he puts the ball where it's supposed to be. I think he sees the field better than drew. Lock does right. Now he's not as biggest. Drew i don't know if he's the athlete that the is i think drew's a better athlete. And there's a lot of things to lie about. Drew lock to. Don't get me wrong but there are a few things that brett rippin does better at this stage and if he does play sunday. I think we'll see those on display. And i think he's gonna do okay just final thought to your point about practice. Time as we know he also got all that practice. Before the patriots game the first patriots game the got cancelled so he that work all all week when We didn't know they were being coy about. Whether it'd be rippin or lock and then the game ends up getting cancelled so it ends up being a non issue So yeah so just a lot more work with the ones which is something. He said he hadn't really had to that point at all thrown with those guys so on the other side of the ball the brunt well actually you know before we moved to the other side of the ball final thing on the offense the phillip lindsay situation. He's not on the injury report today. A lot of people ask about it and you know they talk about the situation you get behind we understand. They like melvin gordon moore and pass protection route running but it feels like they need to force a way to get phillip lindsay on the field. Even if he and gordon on the field together if he's lined up in the slot and they're lined up and split backs. He's your most explosive offensive player with apologies. Hamblur and judy. Are you as frustrated as most broncos country is that phillip lindsay only had four carries the other day. Yeah that was pretty strange They couldn't run the ball. Much at all. Melvin gordon got off to a good start. Running the ball breaking tackles and in that. Looked like the melvin gordon that you paid all the money for right but but phillip lindsay for some reason. Didn't seem to be a very big part of the the game. Plan the scheme going in. I think the only through to him. One time i was targeted. Once in what four carries for two yards. or something. exactly yeah. I think they complement each other. Well we've talked about this before. Melvin gordon being the bigger back melvin. Gordon is better in past pro. i think pretty significantly. And maybe just from the size alone. And melvin gordon receiver. So there there's a couple of things. The hair that i believe is why. You're seeing melvin gordon as the primary back phillip lindsay. Obviously the more explosive player. Phillip lindsay is going to make big plays for you when he gets in space He he can take it to the house anytime they just haven't been able to to to get much out of them. I don't know what it is but you know they tried to throw to a couple of times and He wasn't able to make the catch. We saw that I don't know why screen pass don't with him. But the broncos have been able to run. Screen passes is long. As i've been calling games right and i'm on your four right. I don't know what the deal is with that. I know you mentioned putting him in the slot yet. That would make a lot of sense if he could catch the ball. You know part of until they throw to him a little bit and you can use them on jet sweep stuff. Especially yeah decoy right. Yeah i'm not down on phillip lindsay at all. These are just facts and with me if you want to but right now. That's i think the problem getting phillip lindsay in there There's a couple of things that he just doesn't do as well as melvin gordon. So one on the defense in We'll have some fun on your way out the door The defense continues to struggle. Part of that is the situation. The offense put it. It's crazy to think that that game was thirteen. Six with thirty six seconds left. Before that josh jacobs touchdown and the raiders were doing all they could give the broncos a game or keep them in it. And you guys were talking about it. On the broadcast that evans of stats now are continuing to get worse. Look at the matchup age. That i always look at and reference a lot and now there twenty seven points per game twenty third in rushing yards Two hundred yard rushing game twice in the last three weeks. Where you with. This defense is still has a lot of really good players. Even if they're short handed up front yeah. I think the defense is getting a little bit worn out because of the lack of production on the office of side of the ball. And you can't ignore the injuries. And i think that's a major factor. Why teams are starting to run on them now. their entire defensive line from the start of the season We'll we'll these last. Two games has been out. Obviously but you lose terrell casey early Then you lose. Mike mike roussell their best. Run stopper jurrell. Casey one of the best defensive lineman in the league and then they're shelby harris shelby's avin his best year but he's missed the last two games. I think that has really hurt them. I think you're seeing some of these young guys starting to get better week to week. Dream on comes to mind. Right away to sean. Williams has been pretty solid sylvester williams. No sometimes there's a reason football for a year. He's been out of football for year. His his best his best days are behind him. he's maybe still rounding into came shape. I don't know. But i don't see him doing a whole lot. There plugging up the middle of that defensive line. But what are your options right. You don't maybe maybe the rookie play a little more right. Ninety five sosa as teammates. Call him so so. Is it akeem or at jean. I heard it both. I've heard both ways. I feel like it's a gm but maybe it's a game. I don't know i've i've used. I've called them both. I think you guys call them both in the game. I think dave did at least a flip card right here. Let me grab this garter yeah but You know the flip card. The pronunciation is easing a little bit confusing. I think it says a game on the on the flip card right but that doesn't necessarily mean it's right. I spent ten minutes talking with kevin harlan last week about alberto when i had him on the podcast and he said that the flip cards wrong. It says it says so you. H capital dash g e n at gene or game is at a g. I don't feel like if it was if it was a j. sound they would write it with a j. right. You do okay. We'll check so let's go with him for now. I'll ask for real tomorrow. And then that way by sunday because i do think we will see him a little bit more By sunday yeah you you can do to and i want to see a more. He was he was showing in the backfield in the preseason. And if everything hasn't clicked and or wilbur will wear colour with rookies. You know they obviously took it. Slow with demarcus walker and move around a lot With dream aunt joan's last year cell. And it's not all types vanja demarcus walker to is getting better as well i. I like what i've seen from them. But i did like the rookie a game. Yeah jeep he goes myself so team calls them sosa so so he was a really very impressive player at arkansas and i thought he would be a guy that would come in here and get playing time right away. He didn't i. I mean they drafted him. What in the third round. I would i would have thought especially with the injury to mike pursell. They'd be playing this kid instead of sylvester williams. And maybe that's what you'll end up seeing and then finally one. Did you have anything fun. The game got out of hand. You certainly weren't going to get to do you have anything. Fun raiders. wise or anything. You're looking forward to you. Know we can do a little tease for the dolphins game. There wasn't a whole lot of room for fun in the raiders game I did say something about during waller's great-great-grandfather lawler He dropped a pass. Right a touchdown touchdown. And i think i said something like yeah. His great great grandfather fats. Even he's shaking his head. I think something like that anyway but you know what we had a lot of fun. That first half yeah. I thought the first half was really competitive. Both dave and i thought they were gonna win the game in the second half they got blown out in the second half but it was real fun in the first half and then it just went off the rails. Defense got worn down. You just can't win games throwing debt many interceptions and in the fumble. Today sean hamilton. Which i don't think really was a fumble. I'm shocked didn't reverse that one but you're just not going to win the game so know it's always fun. I look forward to it every week. Win or lose but man when they win it should so much one and you can just have more fun with the game within the game. Yeah well as of detective and ray finkle. If they're kicker misses it you can say where the lasers out or ray finkle rolling over in his grave or anything like that. I think with with some rain. Godolphin stuff or darius. Rucker is a huge miami dolphins fan. That's why he that. Line that hootie song back in the day About the dolphins making me cry and was in dan marino. Video yeah. I'm just a baby. Dolphins made me cry so anything like that. I'll be looking forward to listen every game Special press box so Do you think they bounce back regardless a qb. I'm just starting to dig into the dolphins in fact just just tonight digging into this football team When it comes to playing a rookie quarterback I i just keep thinking that that rookie is gonna have a bad game. Well offensively. they're not very good like you. Both the numbers there. Twenty than rushing twenty-six in passing. So and i know it was only started a few games. That was with patrick who had a couple of big games so to to has been. He's been okay. he's been efficient. But i always think that a guy like vic fangio who's been defensive coordinator forever is gonna dial something up for two of that. He's never seen before and if that does happen. It makes me optimistic. That the broncos can win the game whether it's with drew lock or bread rippin. I just always feel like the rookie. Quarterback is gonna come back down to earth and crash at any moment. And i always of course hope it's against the denver broncos. It's so i'm going to go into the game with that. Hope going against the dolphins into this week is ribbon. Intuit's the two best quarterbacks in the history of the game both undefeated in and they're going to be meeting to it's clash of the titans rick. You're the best. Thanks for the time. Enjoy your game. Prep and i'll catch on sunday at the game. You gotta be k. Thank you my. Thanks to rick lewis. Thank you for listening hopefully We'll track down big al tomorrow. Friday will go enemy lines with men. Adam beach covers the dolphins. He was gonna come to town but now as kobe restrictions are tightening. He is no longer traveling only. The print writers have been earn writers. As mostly newspaper people have been traveling covering any team. No radio no real electronic media and you anywhere other than folks who right and it hasn't been too many. But now i want superman vs in person but we will get his. Take on the upstart dolphins.

Victory Monday! BK Recaps the Dolphins Game with Ryan Edwards

"Lee began today as meditation with the few sipping exercises to remind us. A little treat can go a long way so pick up your mccafe. iced coffees. Close your eyes and deep seven and deep satisfaction out. Take a treat retreat at mcdonald's right now mcafee iced coffee and any size and any flavor for just ninety nine cents until eleven. Am price of participation may vary. We'll be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Heavy victory monday broncos country. It's always happy when it's victory monday. The broncos taking care of business against the miami dolphins yesterday was just what the doctor ordered. Twenty two thirteen was called a complete team win by so many people starting with vic fangio and then working through the organization all of the players calling a team win. We'll hear from vic fangio here coming up whilst from a happy and relieved drew lock but the broncos dominate on defense six sacks the interception for justin simmons late in the game to seal the win ryan fitzpatrick in and relief at two of who had been knocked out and it was a bunch of people getting in on the act in terms of taxes. John williams with me read. It was bradley job. It was draymond jones. It was demarcus walker. They were all they were all in the mix so it was good to see a complete team effort yesterday. Special teams really. Good they neutralized yukimi grant the stud returner for miami and it kind of relations. You what you thought this team could be. I guess maybe reminds. Isn't the right word but indicate shows you what this team can be when everything comes together. I know that can be a big. If but coming off the effort against the raiders to come back home a team that six and three that had won five in a row to buy low playing great as a rookie and to completely baffle him. Stifle their offense. Just thirteen points are lone touchdown coming early on a really nice catch by devante parker but just a great great effort. And you're on the ground for one hundred eighty nine yards you. Get eighty four for melvin gordon. Plus two scores. Yes the fumbles. Concerning phillip lindsay make plays eighty two yards on sixteen carries. Actually were tied both at fifteen carries for eighty four yards until lindsey was dropped for a two yard loss late in the game and and that ended up being the the difference after the interception so At least in terms of their rush totals between each other that battle but drew lock bad early. Good if not really good late certainly good. Enough completing seventy five percent of his passes. After starting over six. He finishes eighteen thirty on the day. Two hundred seventy yards. Maybe would have been two. Oh nine the the throat to end the sixty yard tim patrick. I'm sure help some people's fantasy football leagues if they played tim patrick. Or if you played drew lock The over under which i saw was anywhere from thirty seven to forty two for passing yards drew. Well under two. Oh nine he ends up going over at two seventy but When when you get a team win That's really all that matters now. You welcome in the saints team that took it to atlanta tastes. Him hill played great in relief of drew. Brees out with the broken ribs. Their defense had eight sacks came jordan the five time pro bowler at three. So they're gonna come to town. It's not going to be easy but at least twenty four hours. They always talk about the twenty four hour rule. You relish this win. Here's vic fangio. Dave logan post game and you can hear the enthusiasm and his voice. Congratulations i thought. All three phases contributed to this thing today all team with. Yeah it was. I thought sam Did a great job. Putting brandon made his kicks. I thought we Neutralize their return game which they've really been hurting people within Their overall kicking game has really contributed to their winning. And i thought we did a good job there. Although i think we did dodge a bullet on a potential blocked punt that they could have gotten out of spillover. Our kicking game was better. Obviously we ran the ball a whole lot better than we have been. And when you do that you know it just changed the whole complexion of the game and you get some three and outs that we were getting on defense and you're running the ball and the whole complexion of the game is different and that was good and obviously we played good on defense. Got some rush. We you know had the hang on there at the end. I kind of felt all week. I kept talking to the players that fitzpatrick was gonna show show up in there and he did so but overall a great team win. I wish we didn't have to struggle at the end there you know. We fumbled going in. But hey we'll take it no doubt about that. You mentioned the running game. Thirty-three carries for one hundred eighty nine ers. That's five point seven per carry. I saw different things in the running game in this game in terms of the scheme that had seen this year. Yeah i think we had a couple of runs in there and that were game specific for their defense and a couple of them. Pop nicely thought. Our backs ran good. I thought i'd line tight ends. Did a good job blocking and you know when you have some success with it you can stay committed to any gives you a better mix of run past. It's like i've been saying all along you know what's wrong with the offense. I said if we just throw it a little bit better that will help the running game if we run a little bit better. That will help the passing game and we had some more of that today. You know you defense play. Great as you mentioned the at six sacks on miami quarterbacks and then even though they had the lay driving things got a little bit tense with that veteran quarterback as he. He understands and knows where to go with the ball. What a great play. Great jump on the ball by justin simmons for the interception. Yeah was he He was looking for that the whole way there. He was on the left side of the field. Eyeball what was going on on the right side keyed in that. A quarterback made a great play and made a great catch. You know there was a collision there and just thankfully hung onto. Yep congratulations victory win. Thank you dave and how about a little bit more from vic who not surprisingly really classy gesture they end up honoring little. Here's what vick settling sat down. He was asked. Did you think about sending a game ball to floyd to or to his family as as we find out. The broncos hall of famer is in hospice As he's dealing with cancer so he was vic fangio there into his postgame press conference. Yeah we talked about him. One on the all time greats and bronco history all number forty four. I remember magic kid growing up. He was wearing my house. An eagles fan growing up but from a fire was a fluid. Little fan too and we did get him one. We're gonna get it sent to him. Then can you talk about defensive effort especially after you have the early interception in the game. Kind of just staying with it. yeah. I thought her defense played. Well good for the most part. Even after we through the early interception you know they had the work real hard on that short field to get it in there and we had a bunch of three and outs. We had a good day on third down. I believe for the most part and we justin came up big there at the end. We had the six sacks lot of them were up kind of late meaning late in the down the where cutting our coverage was good and Just really proud of the entire team next okudah. Did you do any in particular because he was a rookie or just kind of stick with a more aggressive package over. Well you know we were thinking to be a little bit more aggressive than we actually work. We did pressure more but actually it me before the game i we i was planning on doing it even more than we did. Some of the situations then come up. They had they beat us in a few of them. So i had to go back a little bit and we were able to Still get some pressure and still get them stopped. Ronald congrats on the win. As always to four The running game today. What about filming of and a follow up. I mean it was big car to winning that game. Obviously i've always said the court quarterbacks two best friends are running game and a good defense for the most part. We had that going tonight. And i think reflected in drew's play after. He threw the early interception. I think it was pretty solid after that. Then you know it was a great team win. They've been doing a lot of things in the special teams to help them win. We ran with to not give up anything there. I thought sam did a great job on brand made his kicks and overall it was a great team. Went follow up. Did the pet run a lot of new run stuff today where there whether different angles you guys want to turn a couple of neurons in for them. Because of the title france that they play and a good game plan by the coaches. We had some success with those couple of pop nicely. I see we twenty art by philip. A twenty five yard by mao and You know just some big plays in. But we're able to stay with it too and that's you know. Part of the problem on the atlanta game. Anyway was too far behind. It's hard to run it when you're behind the raider game you know we had too. You know we run it but you're going out a bunch that cuts down on your opportunities so amazon success when it helped the early doubt game. Two congrats on the on the victory What was it that allowed Drew to settle down after that interception to pat. Saying you think tim to kind of get his head straight. I think the i think drew comes back from bad planes. I think that's one of good qualities. I'll think it he lets it longer and get has a hangover from it but again getting the running game gone. You know which helps the game and have the defense play well alongside that you know turns it to where it's not a game to where you gotta throw it every play and they can t off in the russian also. It just changes the whole complexion of the game for coach. Congratulations on the win. Had issues closing out at times but today you did in what it was. Different and justin has had a terrific year this kind of just an exclamation point of the season. He's having thousand a great play by him. He had one earlier in the game at the gate. It gesture great player and we love having him came close to some place earlier in the game to besides the one that lost to the day. I think it's justice that he was able to get the game winner inch single. I know you'll have to kind of go back and look at it to have a a real specific idea. This would you see from sean. Williams couple with was really active. Wasn't the only one on the in the front seven. Obviously but we're kind of your first impression. Yeah i mean. I can't comment his tame play but overall front had the work hard. We did get sick but they were hard to get meaning we had. They were a little bit later. In the down coverage was good we had to keep grind. We had a chance at a couple of other ones but to patrick. Elusive is the scramblers and just kudos to our front. For the way they fought time for more trying to get your thoughts as we can't go any integration. You guys had third and ten or more four times today. She converted three of them. What was going on on those third and longs and made it work today. Why we've actually pretty good job. We've had too many of but we've converted our fair share of him relative to the rest of the league and Joe can stick it in there and tight quarters you know we have some good routes the protection good and you know we don't give up on third ten you know. We think we still can get them up to marchers. Circle have coach alluding to some of the stuff you said earlier. How much easier game to play and coach when you have an early lead and to what extent was this the formula. You'd like to see for the rest of the year. Yeah i always would like early league. That's for damn sure but again it just goes back to what i said when you are running it decently and you're playing good defense. The complexion of a game is different. You know you. you're not feeling like offensively mad. If we don't score were troubled got throw it every play defensively you can kinda call the game way you to call it not feeling like you have to call it a certain way because the way things are going and allows you to mix things up and That's you know we definitely would like this. Play that style. Play both sides of the ball and Still would like to improve our finish. Their you know we obviously could add the ball. On the one yard touchdown there with melons run. You know those are things that we can't do. And we've got to eliminate that which i heard you tell dave logan that you thought you'd see. It's patrick and you're telling players this week. So how much did you prepare for. Maybe on this. I at least in your mind and when he went into the game did it sort of unfold the way he thought it might with his execution to to yeah. I kinda thought that way week that if we played good they would put him at and that came out we he to. It only played three games. So it's patrick. Ups that we watched and the film that we watched the night. I watched the myself on the side I just kind of had a feeling. We're gonna see him if we played good and then of course drew lock coming off. Those four interceptions wasn't great but didn't have to be great was good and i think you'll take good at this point. I will hear drew. Lock with dave and then we'll hear drew his press conference as well because you never get enough of the starting quarterback when he plays well right. So here's do locks. Dave logan post congratulations man. Gr great bounceback win for him. Thank you that was a big one. There sure Hats off to our off tonight man. Those guys came into play and let us through this today. Tell me how tough it was. You'll put it up and you throw a pick and they get the ball on the twenty two yard line. Then they score. What was your process mentally going back in that game at that point given sort of how things had gone. The last couple of weeks You know was just. I don't even know you can't really even put into words. It's just listen. You've got to be doing this with a profound word at the end of that statement It's time for you to step it up and you know that doesn't necessarily mean you know you have to make every single play. You don't have to throw five touchdown to this team to win. You don't have to force balls down the field. It's just doing your job and you know letting the pieces fall into play That's that's the that's the thing that you know. I i need to really put in. My brain is know you come from college and you gotta make every play that is it is what it is you know. You're the better player. The best player on that team and That's completely different in the nfl. You gotta get the ball in these guys hands. Trust around game. Czeslaw solvents of line. You know outcomes might be different. Yeah no doubt about that Really effective i guess. Effective would be an understatement. Thirty three runs for you guys today. Eight hundred and eighty nine yards. We were talking during the game. And i made the comment then asked vic about. This is well i. It sure looked like there were a couple of new wrinkles in that run game. runs that. From a schematic standpoint. That i i had not seen. Is that a fair assessment. Yeah that's fair We were dialed in for this week. you know. We knew what we wanted to check into against their zero when they brought everybody. And you know we. We had around that. We liked going into that. We had been quite a bit of stuff that we ran this week. Different formations that a dialed and Coccia coach shurmur says the best though. It's the players not the place you know those. Those aren't integrate. Looks all the time. But those guys are blocking their butts off. And melvin fill royce. We're we're doing their thing tonight. Absolutely congratulations man. Happy for wait. Abouts back and we'll talk later this week. Thank you so. I think withdrew. You hear more relief than overall exuberance and that's okay till he was a little bit looser and i got some smiles awesome smiles in the postgame. Zoom press conference will let you for from do here as well and the first question to drew was about his sore ribs and as well as the team's mentality going into this game Had they approach it and how come away. The this is a game that was pretty much chalked up for we played. It are a lot of people's is there's no way that we were gonna be able to pull this one off. And that's just typical. Nfl football man. You gotta take a week by week. And that's what. I figured out that was really hot. Dolphins team covenant if in scoring points on defense takeovers or turnovers. Taking the ball away from offense. I was extremely determined There's a lot of talk about playing this weaker. Not plans we can. There is nothing that nothing is going to stop me from. Playing games are definitely wasn't an easy. Be good practice. I through and even today a little bit but off landlocked advice house claims night. Nice game lori drew. I one of the renegade iota front row seats impress free with philip involvements work they're awesome awesome fill is almost these talks about in media. Shutdown deserves a whole lot of credit for this from game in this office The blaze on the field and in the locker room model from last year this year. It's completely different. So i've been extremely impressed with how east progress as a leader for this offense just as overall player in general second interception three and out how much of that third ten to hamler sort can calm down and get you in a group. Yeah it was. That was a big one. Knows one of those playcalls where you know. You're pushing the ball downfield sitting there. Take one if you have to now is the mindset going into it time to upgrade cages. A threat over the top. He's got a lot of speed when you mix that with you know really good ability to able to shut it down. Quick stop to guard. That's exactly what it was. Perfect timing for for both of us route. It words please. We gotta have these games. They're they're trusted tomatoes. That was one of the plays that maybe last week the week before. We don't make coming off visit different mile on the sidelines always progressing congratulations on the win. Today's you you had the early interception but last year. You didn't make a mistake. Seem to settle down calm down and then is this who this offense should be thirty thirty five forty or you know that balanced as you think maybe this is the secret sauce for without a doubt i mean about offense is always the best offense There's games where we start slow and we get down offense side. Scores guys were the baltimore. let's this is the game of football aren't it'd be ideal to be super balanced solid time attack And no mix things up on defense. Sometimes i say you down your throat more than than you'd like and Are run game tonight. Exploded too much shula. All the guys all of those guys playing their office plan going into this game plan a little monday tuesday carryover in a row this week. So i'm really proud of the guys for to adult and said that we need to ask you. Because i said that hug that he gave you after the first pick. He said maybe i know him asked drew. He's my guy. And then pasa tim patrick. It doesn't tend to be caught. That's the longest play from scrimmage yard. So doyle about the things you know. Dalton we've been like this since we got here First night in denver was knows with him. We would move in together. Suspend a whole training camp olivier's together. He knows better than anyone team him in riddle and i've been so appreciative of having those guys around helped me through some of these things now. I detest to them. I'm so proud of the way that they've helped me throughout the week on extremely appreciative and Know the last we did time since the jets ideal everyone knows the place ideal iota run out of you hold a little bit and then chuck it and gus appointed. Try to roll out. They brought the zero twenty off the edge. I believe it's tough to really get out. My main concern was you just got gotta thrill it. You gotta get it out Don't let this clock run outright year. At that moment. I knew it was either going to be right out of bounds or was gonna be tim down this time it. Actually you know. Make a play for some Something happens filmed. The object reset said earlier yet learn. This is a week to week business. So why would you mean by that You know pay cliche in line. You know Any given sunday ion says it. But it's very true. It's so true you'll look at the last games. These dolphins have had last games. We've had as an offense and knowing that. Come in here until you got around Definitely went in this game. No one's going to say that and and our locker room with our mindset and that's exactly what we were thinking regardless. How learn what you watching into from the last week and come into this week. Ready to go fired up. Take what you learned from week by week. And eventually this team's gonna have learned a lot and we're going to keep rolling and we're gonna end up in a team that's I wanted to watch out for. Lets you ever melvin gordon to. We don't hear from too much. Certainly not as much as we do from phillip lindsay but a big day the two touchdowns eighty four yards on fifteen carries. Here was number twenty five post game on on his day. You not to close job with scheming of the fries. Looks and being able to check out some great looks for that. Would it came down to a ouseley. Everyone execute on the line did a phenomenal job out. There being a bouncer. That he's really bulldozing guys over making a really great lengths sports and then we had to do a couple of guys miss. We did gracing. The secondly after a big of a relief was just the interception as heavy was happy sale. Man it's crazy 'cause Some work on You know every week some might think about some really caused to go to the game in pretty much score had know away from me. Like data sucks but You know these came through and We got the dog. So have you that droid. It's one thing to win. Melvin but when you do it where you control the line of scrimmage. How good did that feel. Because that's kind of the blueprint of how you and phil could work together right. Is it feel better. When you're able to win. At the line of scrimmage like that it definitely is you know you able to run the ball. Pass the ball Effectively on the game allow a lot more fun You know we can go after some fun with it. S what the game is about in balance are balanced. I think the biggest thing was this week. We weren't behind the chains You know shooting ourselves in convert. Not their douse Able to stay out there in kabul reckless It's kinda hard. We kinda shooting yourself in the foot third and long knock averted we were. We have good jobs teams execute Third-down burden Been keeping in filling on field arms to make to make explosive. Plays melvina drew took some heat this week when impressed you about how he responded today. Just like is a quarterback you know you have to be able to head at mindsets where not can get to you. You have to go out there and just make play when everyone is gets. You gotta understand and your teammates. Which and that's really the only pain that really matters. I'll sleep you know yukon weirdest sita. You probably ran across bangs. And you've probably heard something for good quarterback kinda kinda blocked at out and go out and do this needs to be done be noted like i said. I'll tell them all the time games winning by losing a win or lose his job especially at quarterback so For him to come here and be resilient dude you need to do to help. The team win lead after he took so much heat last week it just shows player he is good to see both gordon phillip lindsay get gone and something that we just haven't seen really to this point much almost two hundred yards rushing. I think I think broncos country will take that every week. let's go to the other side of the ball real quick before we get to ryan edwards from bradley chubb. He did have one of those six sacks. Is the best player in the defensive front without question. I think you make the case. Justice says the best player on the back end but bradley chubb came to play after a couple Obviously player week but after a couple of weeks without a sack was able to get one yesterday and will end was near till two bunch so He began his press conference by Answering the question. What did you guys do to to disrupt two as a game plan. We knew he was going to be on a decals off as knew he was gonna start to run game. Gladiator didn't have him with his big government. Wave moves around so we wanted to get some early rattling up. Barely feel like we. Did you You for the rest of the game. We kept him back there. So i was just to make sure we kept him in pocketing. Wants we did that on. Just his start adding up in the so. It was good for us Early the performance by the defensive front today is that something you hope to springboard and are are we starting to see maybe some more cohesion especially considering all the turnover in injuries up front for show a lot more cohesion. Those guys they play hard because they have to step up in roles were sheltered being now might be now so you just say guys that we had Starting to play starting play together with the defense and it's just fun to seize noodles guys were Plenty enough talented. It was just about opportunity for him now. having to sacks de walk the sack dre having second me and me both emi is crazy we sit back for sure fine. I can't wait to keep it rolling. You told me your last week barley. There's no quietness team. What is pushing these guys in daylight this you know because you got by and clearly but today like this give this team kind of that confidence it needs to finish the second half of the season for sure I feel like this was like ultimate team. Game are supposed to play amazing. Offer his split amazing on defense played. Amazing live we even when the office made a mistake or we made stay right there. We were right there to fix it up for them so it was one of the ultimate tango. Glad we had his game in. It should one of those Those games that pushes us words more wins than win. Okay that'll do. For zoom portion of this podcast. I want you to hear my conversation with ryan edwards from last night from broncos react Couple things real quick on the injury front Shelby harris don't know if he's gonna play this week. He started his workout yesterday. But vic fangio threw it out there that he may not be back in time for the saints game so not sure what's going on but he's supposed to have a workouts if he's on the practice field wednesday that's not a good sign I don't think it's my understanding. He's no longer positive for covid more to getting back into football shaper We will keep an eye on that situation. Graham glasgow vic fangio talked about his calf In his monday press conference as lower legs in the soreness air. He took himself out for the final ten plays. Let him play. I thought that was a better way to go. A mutual decision if you will sell Appreciate glasco being that. Selfless i guess to say. Hey we're better off here without hurting. This further led austin play. These final ten plays and they were up. I think at that point when he came out twenty two ten before we were reminded about chuck water. Chilly it's starting to get cold Snow in the forecast here in the denver metro. Go check water. Chile dot com use. Promo code chuck. Water be k. juggler. Chile's a spice of western life. Twenty five percent. When you use my promo code you also get your local grocers. Maybe after thanksgiving you'll make some turkey chili using similar great jaguar. Chili chili powder. So charlie dot com promo code chug water be k. right edwards from broncos country tonight and he joins us last night on broncos react like you always does so. Here's my chat with. I'm curious ryan when you in ben. We're talking this morning on. Bet fred opening line What betsy like. I'll tell you when. I light and hit pretty early phillip lindsay over right around twenty nine and a half depending on what you got. But that's where. I saw that. I love that and then my favorite stat of the night was drew. Lock depending on where. You're looking anywhere from two thirty seven to forty two. He was hitting two. Oh nine before that final heave. That wasn't necessarily intended to be caught. Tim patrick is he told his postgame. But that puts him over so some people were happy with that completion. And i'm sure some people were disappointed. Will yeah i mean you think about how many fantasy matchups swung on putting over one hundred yards. Obviously you have to one nineteen. So i know the league's i have tim. Patrick and i was pretty thrilled about that. But i i always think about those moments and you see like games were a running back will stop on the one yard line or go to balance the nick chubb last week as an example of that. And you know he's in every single lineup so those are always fascinating to me from a gambling and for a fantasy perspective. But now i mean we we the broncos in this one. I think we were. We were willing to take the points in this case but also you know bedford at a great boost. They had if you wanted to go on the money which obviously paid you get to plus one ninety on the broncos in this game so we ended up. Both of us took that bet this morning and now worked out nice. Yeah so when you look at the game and what a difference a week makes and we took one call from bill will take a bunch more but the aim starts. The first thing you get is a drew lock interception and it's like oh here we go again right and rises having them give them a hug on the sideline man are we gonna see brett rip and not that anyone saying that's happening immediately but what kind of game would have the broncos stayed with it. We saw more creativity from pat shurmur and his run design saw drew make some big throws and i think maybe the biggest of the game was at completion of k j. Hamler what what were some things that stood out to you. Well i mean you bring it up right there. He started owen six clothing interception and put the defense once again in a bad place. And it's just like what we keep saying over and over and over again this is what's killing the team. Is they out. These bad turnovers the leading the league turnovers and then putting their defense in a bad spot and this is the defense again. That's the number one red zone defense. Since last year so again that all sorts their stats to But but they always had an interception there with that was called back unfortunately but then he goes on so he started the whole game. He completed sixty percent of his passes. But if you go after the oem six start including that interception. He completed seventy five percent. And i slam the table. Of course because we got steve atwater shoutout but he completed seventy five percent of his passes after going over six so it was a complete one eighty from what he has been and what he had been all season to go into a really efficient thing and again you do the running game. I mean the running game. One hundred eighty nine rushing yards averaging five point. Seven and melvin. Gordon almost got an extra yard in there and extra touchdown. They would've had one hundred ninety and three touchdowns but of course he fumbled right there but overall mean you just have to be thrilled with the effort. It was a complete team win. And we really haven't seen very many of those and then make fangio said the second. He sat down. Dave he start talking about the special teams but they neutralized you came. Grant really good obviously brandon Makes his four kicks field goals and really good job. I san martin but the defense with six sacks. I say undermanned in some respects. You have to when you don't have your starting line. It's kind of by definition undermanned. Would you think of the defense. And the mixing it up to get to six times in basically knock him out of the game. I mean you have to love it right. We're taught you said a perfect. I mean you're talking about playing with your backup rotational defensive line and they got pressure up in his lap multiple times. The edge was getting their melik. Read obviously was a huge force early on bradley. Chubb may big plays. I mean you have. You had to be thrilled. And vic fangio characterized this really well a lot of those actually because of coverage because the kind of came late you know to his looking around looking around. he's just nothing coming open and then the pressure eventually got to him but that that for me again coming back to a complete team win all three really all three levels of the defense made place today there certainly things you want to clean up a little bit out there but mean th. They held him to that one. Touchdown couple field goal drives and the broncos really because just the way this thing was set up they really should have won by a lot more but it again. That's just the way it ultimately fell. They won the game. It felt like they were in control the whole time. And like i said this is definitely kind of momentum building moment for this team. So let's give question the bill in. La just asked me. Is this the team that we expect to see. Or is it a mirage. And i said that i can't answer that talk to me a week or two not not ready to say that mirage. But also you're gonna get this every week. I was just explaining that. I think it's a talented roster and you see what they can be what they're capable of. So how would you answer that question. A bill were call you up from l. a. Tomorrow night on broncos country nine ask you the same thing i mean i think that we we kinda hoped that if they started to be a little bit more efficient on offense and established the run and we knew this defense was was playing was a capable of playing better football than they had been so. There's just certain things about this team. And i think that's what's so frustrating over the last few weeks is because you just know that they are capable of so much more even with all of the injuries. There's a lot of depth and talent here but it's all very young and you just. There's something that needed to kind of unlock. And i don't mean that as upon necessarily but there's just something that needed to spark them and today's performance who knows i mean you know you thought. After they won against the chargers that would be a little bit of a spark but then they went to the atlanta falcons game. They were really decimated on the defensive side especially in the secondary missing both buoy and callahan. So they got in a big hole in that one. And then against the raiders. They just had a really bad game like just top to bottom a really bad game but that that game you heard guys like dalton riser ends. You heard Guys like even drew lock after the game saying that was a kind of an inspirational moment for them. The defense even said you know we can play better than this they. They knew they knew that performance. That happened in the third quarter. Where their offense only touched the ball four times. They knew that they can show better than that. And so maybe the loss more so than the win this week. The loss last week to the raiders. In the way they really lost in all three phases. Maybe that looks like the spark when we look back at this season ryan edwards broncos country tonight fame of course on sunday zero. Hear them all morning. Long than as part of the broncos. React as well from fred opening line to the koa fantasy football hour and then. Of course you're broncos countdown to kickoff final. One i have for you. You watch out of the corner. I'm sure the falcons and the saints. And we saw the falcons view weeks kind of have an idea who they are when they're great when they're not so great. You saw tatum hill. And the saints. What's the expectation. Because i haven't checked what. Fred has it but i saw someone tweet that it's around the broncos a five point home underdog to taste some hill and the saints had. He'd think this week's gonna shape up especially with thanksgiving in the middle. And now sean payton bringing the saints will the one constant i'd have between what they just saw to. A tongue of my law and tastes hill. Is they're both quarterbacks. To hold the ball really long time and tastes him hill. He is some hit some nine step drops in there and he comes swinging all the way back so we can see the entire field but that can also be a little bit dangerous. And the broncos. Pass rush i mean. I like the broncos pass rush in many ways especially if they get shelby horseback many ways. Better than what the falcons can throw out there without. The falcons are have all sorts of problems on the defensive side so today's performance was impressive in the sense that tastes them hill. Didn't look like an abject disaster out there and you know that he's going to be able to get some rushing opportunities. Michael thomas got finally got one hundred yard receiving game alvin. Kamara got a touchdown in the game. So you know the the regular guys were all gonna get touches and they're all gonna make plays but if they can get taste some hills to make some mistakes hold onto that ball too long you do like the broncos chances to get them behind the chains to get them behind schedule and if the broncos offense can play complementary and and put up some numbers like they did today. I really like their chances. All right hope. You enjoyed the victory. Monday broncos daily podcast tomorrow on tuesday. I will have a conversation with ian rapoport from nfl network as well as maliki read broncos outside linebacker. And we'll see what's going on on the broncos injury front as well. I believe the team will have the day off. Tomorrow is a rumor that i heard in a victory tuesday as well so a couple days off in this kobe world.

We'll be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with Brandon Krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs Apostol. Happy Wednesday broncos country even out her a few weeks at NYPD guys hanging and. The ring amid week. broncos daily podcast had a good chance to talk to my guy. Rick Lewis yesterday the color analysts on the broncos radio network and. Fun. Discussion at the end about Rick's desire to be a doctor or to get a doctorate you'll hear that not a lot going on a broncos country. Expectedly, they did move on from Timmy Jernigan. That's because at least one if not, both of those defensive lineman are going to be ready to come back and Dream Aunt, Joan's and Damarcus Walker. So appreciate Jernigan. Services, I'm sure the broncos somehow win the super bowl the way to send him a ring and then Brandon McManus in the least surprising news of the day or certainly of the week named AFC special teams player of the week for the second straight game. And I believe third time in his career. So even though there was a break in between because of the by week, he is now tied with. Justin Tucker who saw day for most multiple fifty yard field goals in a game with six twelve or thirteen this year he's made all eight of his. Forty four total points he has five fifty yard field goals through the seven weeks that's tied a career high for him and so. Good to see McManus for the second straight time. When the AFC. Special Teams Player of the week it's the. Twenty. Eight time that a broncos player has won it. And obviously the second street time for in the BRONCOS will be back to work today and they continue to get ready for the chiefs. No new positive test. So that's always good news. Drew. Lock. Will continue to get more comfortable back in there as the starter and Dalton Reisner I guess our last piece of news likely not gonNA. This week, that's the sense that I get talking to People Benjamin Albright put it out there and then rick and I talk about it as well because he talks to Dalton drew lock in Bradley Chubb Every Week So. It'll be kind of a bummer I. Don't know. Though there, there's not as huge a drop off with Austin Shelton as maybe some other spots potentially when you when you lose a starter and it looks like it'll only be for a game or so and then hopefully, if no offense back, you and Alberto together could be a pretty lethal combo that the chiefs. Will be having to account for their on the field together So fingers crossed all that happens before we get to chat with Rick Lewis on remind you about chuck, water chilly.

Conversation with the color analyst for the broncos radio network here six to nine every day on the Rick Lewis shown one, three, five of the Fox nine to noon on Logan and Louis on Koa, the one and only Lewis. Jack Jack. Jack we talk back to me. Thank. You. Okay go again. Sorry. One to check one two. Identical. Coming down. In three two. And one. Rick Pretty Exciting this past weekend Andrew Lock back in action and the Broncos go into a place where hardly anyone ever comes away with the road win and steel that I don't say still at win got and beat the Patriots in Foxborough. Yet was, in fact, drew lock was the youngest quarterback to ever win at Gillette Stadium. which seems hard to believe but that just tells you how great the Patriots have been in the Pella check era. Idiot was fun. So two games in a row, two wins in a row both on the road. of very unlikely win streak seventeen days apart, I don't know if that's ever happened in broncos history. You probably have to go back many many decades to see if that's ever happened in the national football league. But this is what it's like here in the Year of covert twenty. Twenty So I asked this to a couple of players in the Post Game Zoom and then I, brought it up I. Think I talked to Big Al Joe Joe I'm on vacation this week I'm stopped talking to those guys. But talk him on Monday I, use this comparison. I haven't use it on here in a while probably since talking about Peyton manning but I used to bring it up all the time from a million years ago I used to show with Kenny Smith when shack was playing with the with the heat and so that gives you an idea of how long ago it was. But what he said about shack and then I and I sold it and use the same thing about Peyton manning is that when you have Shaquille O'Neal on your team especially at that point of his career, he played his best ball he still. To whatever twelve years in still dominate, it just changed your confidence level of the entire team even games that he wasn't healthy and it was mostly young Dwayne Wade carrying them, and so just you know it's what John. Fox You say about PEYTON manning rising tide raises all boats right or a high tide raising. A. High tide raises all boats and so. Peyton obviously was that even. In twenty, fifteen where we know he wasn't what we thought and so drew lock as far from a finished product and he isn't Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers any of these guys yet. But the difference this team, the difference in the way this team plays in looks when drew lock is just on the field, not that he's lighting it up is is so noticeable to me I gotta think it's noticeable to you and plenty of. People in broncos country and his broncos teammates. That's a good analogy if you were listening to the game and it's not, you should be on the radio. I mentioned that during the game that drew lock is the motor. And I'm also mentioned Philippians at these the spark plug. Those guys bring a lot of energy to this offense at that was missing. When they were both out there's no doubt about it. It's noticeable. You see it. You see on the field, you see it on the sideline. -joy that. Drew Lock. Brings just the joy of football that he brings to this team. It seems to lift everybody up. That's a fact. There's no doubt about that. We know he has all the skills. That you would ever want for your franchise quarterback. We know he has all the intangibles. In. Some of those we talked about for your franchise quarterback he's still a work in progress. He needs more time he needs more reps, he needs more experience, but I feel really good about drew lock. What does he play seven and a half games? Ten snaps. Yeah I mean, that's Really. Play a half a season yet take about that he's five and two in games in which he started and finished He looks like he's the guy and I feel good about him at quarterback for the Denver Broncos just needs to stay healthy needs to continue to develop. Let's hope he continues to do that this year by the time we get to the end of the football season I. Just hope it's really obvious to everybody that we've got our quarterback, but which you mentioned be K. is is very, very astute. You picked up on it and I picked up on it, and I'm sure other. Intelligent football fans or big broncos, fans that watch carefully picked up on it as well and so then you look at the rest of the offense and if I would have told you at the end of last season. That the broncos were going to sign a running back when you thought about all the needs ad and where everyone felt like Garrett Bowles? Wasn't his career you scratch your head but then Mallon Gordon come in and played his as well as advertised for what you saw from him when he was healthy with the chargers. Philip. Lindsey got banged up in the first half and you were kind of I'm sure there are plenty people man I wonder filled time here is not done but. Just kind of done you know for lack of a better way to put it then Gordon has the weird week that he has. It's probably pretty unique and a lot of a lot of different respects and Bill Lindsay goes out in for the time in his career one hundred yard game broncos are six. No when he does it and he reminds you that he runs differently than than Melvin does I'm not saying that he runs better he certainly faster and maybe touch quicker and. So now you'll have them both healthy at least for a little while you gotta hope if Gordon's back and ready to roll. But with Philip Lindsey to the broncos need to think about figuring out how to extend him and I. Don't say move on from Melvin Gordon right away but it's a two year deal you'll pay essentially thirteen million for this year. Because I guess five and the guarantee. Are you inclined to to want to go that way because playing people and Broncos country that are I didn't think I was one of them. But on Sunday I was you know it definitely opened my mind up to that possibility. I think I think they're great. One, Two Punch I. Think They Complement Each Other? Melvin. Gordon is what we thought. He was and what the broncos thought he was he's he's really a three down back. He does everything pretty well. and Philip Lindsey does some things better? But Melvin Gordon does something better than Philip Lindsay as well I think Melvin Gordon's a better pass blocker. Melvin Gordon certainly a better pass. Catcher. I think Melvin Gordon. Being bigger guy is a guy. You would want having the ball on the goal line. when it's you know Third Boehner. Certain goal or second goal from the one yard line I. Think that's the guy you probably want to be. Carrying the football and he's been that guy is entire NFL career. But I think they're a great one two punch and and I think you're going to need both of them. Look at you need them both right now you needed them both when Philip was hurt. Luckily. They have two backs of that caliber moving forward I I certainly think Philip Lindsey deserves a contract you deserve to get paid. I would love to see both of them stick around here because I do think they're the perfect complement for each other in. Let's face it running backs of a tough time. Stay unhealthy. It Philip. Lindsay you know that that's one thing maybe. Maybe I. Don't know but maybe the broncos look at his ability because of his size. and. He has been injured what three times. Since he started here in three years. Maybe they're looking at that going, well, you know, can we count on him? Being durable, enough, and healthy enough to play sixteen games season. Well. Let's hope. So because he's he's a heck of a player and he does bring a lot of excitement. He's he's a big play guy. He's a big play maker more than Melvin Gordon. He's the guy that can break one Melvin Gordon is not going to break one offer sixty yards for a touchdown Philip Lindsey will, and so I think it's a great compliment I'd like to see them, keep them both and pay Phil well, and so it'll be interesting to see because we didn't see it very much. I need to go back to week one and see how many snaps were Melvin and Philip on the field together and and Vic Fangio I think tank on Monday where he said that. Maybe we'll finally see the two of them on the field together some of the stuff that we had drawn up or envision. So almost kind of letting the cheese known as the chiefs are going to be surprised but hey, you're gonNA have to account for both of these guys and we're gonNA use them in different ways using together but they will be out there together at times because you're about to face a team that's maybe the best in the League at stressing defense. And putting lots of different looks and putting guys in different spots, they're gonNA, add levy on bell to the mix, which is kind of a scary thought but with tyreek Hill and Michael Hartman and obviously we know about Kelsey and you know that kind of running back by committee with a bunch of really good backs Williams and now the the rookie and like I said Bell. So I guess I'm excited to see what the offense to your point and so I'm I'm now making. Just, reinforcing your point getting the two of them together is exciting. I just don't know long term it makes a lot of sense. Well look at the chiefs you mentioned the chiefs do they need lake on bell? No. With. Hilar- That's a great one, two punch in a in a great complimentary backfield as well. Maybe pretty similar to which got with Gordon Philip. Linzie. In the we all know running backs have a hard time staying healthy and so I think it's good to have them both I'd like to have them both throughout the season next year to that means you're going to have to pay Philip. Every week you talked to dollarized Reisner Bradley Chubb and Drew Lock, and you've already done all those. What was essentially you got from I guess we'll go through one thing for me to one of them but from do lot coming off that win and where he is and his development and and then obviously you know he's getting play against his his childhood team fifteen minutes from from where he grew up is where they play their ball. You may not believe the stories that he dated the owner's daughter Instagram would certainly indicate that it seems like he did for. So how how was drew when you talk to him. He was great like he always is very upbeat, very accountable. He talked about the bad throws that he had in the game instead of the good throws that he had in the game I asked him about his former college teammate Elbert Okwu AAC Woon-ahm Yup I think that's close enough right now listen fact I asked him how do you pronounce his name? And he laughed and he pretty much just call him. Albert Oh for sure and I said, yeah that's what I did and I sit in fact at one point I just call them Alpert. That's an enemy scores a touchdown. Calling Prince Albert Right. Yeah and and you could tell he loves that guy and he said he. I'm paraphrasing delighted to have him on the same team. with him in the NFL he he thought when they parted ways at Missouri that would be it. and. You could see he's got chemistry with this guy and he did mention to on the show with Dave Logan that he said he's GonNa make those catches. He's GonNa catch those balls. To. Big. Drops. To to catchable balls in he said, he'll make those catches. So he's got a lot of confidence in the guy as he should. and. The Guy looks like he can play. But yeah, you do have to be able to make those catches in the national football league or you're not gonNA get enough playing time to to show anybody that you can play. So I I think it's going to be interesting became this weekend to get a healthy. No of fans. And Albert Okwu Egg Benham on the field at the same time talk about a a nightmare, a nightmare matchup. for a defenses and then maybe. You know you throw in a put up knowing Gordon and Philip Lindsey in there together. Where you don't know if they're going to throw the ball to Gordon out of the backfield or have Philip, Lindsay rip-off run you don't keep them on their toes a little bit. Yeah. It'll be nice to give the chiefs taste of their own medicine are Benjamin Albright and maybe more people that have had looked into this as well. said that it doesn't seem likely Dalton rising its plan that will end his Co. Mini ironman streak. He's only been in the league. For Whatnot Twenty one game sell. It wasn't. He wasn't coming in cl close to Manning's I. Think it's ally had it or Brother. Whoever had it? I? Think it's anyway. what's essentially got talking to him. When we talked to them I think it seemed pretty apparent. that. He's GonNa miss some time and he didn't say. I don't know when they plan on announcing his injury or the extent of his injury, but it seemed apparent that he didn't want to say but he was very upbeat. In basically said, don't worry you know. I'M GONNA be back soon, I'm going to be back soon. So what is that a game two games who knows hopefully hopefully, not very long Because they definitely need them. Yeah, and maybe we'll see in a tiny mucci dress and and I think a lot of people get in at some point of the Austin. I thought handled himself. Pretty well, in the team actually protected Patrick Morris this week for the first time, which makes me think Patrick Morris might leapfrogging tiny. Game Day call up, or they've got that extra linemen that they have to that they're allowed to dress. So why wouldn't you do it but yeah, I I'm I'm with you obscene Dalton last year Wednesday Thursday Friday. Towards the end of the year middle middle to the end of the year walking around in a walking boot in the locker room and then he played every week. So at least a couple times so. That was good to see, and then you talk about injuries and a guy that has clearly shaken the rust off Bradley Chubb, when Y'all talk to him I imagine because I get to talk to him every Friday for pre-game. His mood is certainly a upbeat as well and I. It seems like he's come in and maybe the healthy Bradley Chubb gets the less Vic Fangio has to designed crazy blitzes. Yeah, he's the ball and you know you watch him play with the intensity that he plays with. He's also one of the leaders of this team, not just on defense, but one of the leaders of the team in the guy is back in the Groove, it's fun to watch him a man. He's Norton Spit and Snot out there and really going after the quarterback putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback I I'm not sure if he's one hundred percent or not but it certainly looks like he's back in and it has made a difference and also the fact that Vic Fangio suddenly. became. Listen. Vic. Fangio. We hardly saw him blitz at all last year and the first couple of games this year but man is he turned up the heat. These last couple of games and it's really paid off they had four sacks in the first three games. This season ten sacks in the last two games. As he dialed that blit up. So you know we talked to him about that and he basically said it's situational. You know depending on. What he sees from kindergarten game offensively. But it certainly seems like It's GonNa be definitely in his toolbox. Here for a while because it's working for them and you don't want about Vic Fangio to be k. and I told him this. When he came on the show I, really feel like he's hit his groove as a head coach. I got the feeling last week. The way he handled the NFL moving the game. You know his attitude about it he is starting to emerge to me as. A real NFL head coach you know as you know in all football fans now there's a lot of great coordinators that are not very good head coaches. And he has proven. He's a great coordinator I think he is now proven that he's got the potential to be very good head coach as well, and and I think the the team believes in him they come to play every week with all the injuries they've had on this football team they show up every week and they put on a good effort and. That's a good sign that they're they're on the same page is their coach. Yeah. I I called the game in in. Foxborough. The Best Win of Vic Andrew Locks Bradley victim in a part of some great winds. He went to the Super Bowl with the niners as a as a coordinator but obviously, in his current role, I think anyone that knows. understands context understood. I was saying, and for drew lock yeah the win in. HOUSTON. He did more but to your point earlier to be the youngest to go in there and place where even really old veteran quarterbacks. Manny don't go in and win very often and I get Tom Brady was on the other side of that for two decades but. This team is it doesn't seem like they're slouches by any means. So it's good to see with all those guys and you touched on something 'cause I was trying to figure out the best way to get into it without a rough transition before we just look at this chiefs game real quickly and you mentioned all the things that happened last week well, like I mentioned because. The baby's here. Now I'm taking a couple of weeks off of my day to day stuff. I'm still obviously doing the podcast a little bit and and other pre-game stuff and all that. I got an email from the broncos. It said Hey, your status changed and to let people behind the curtain I've certainly talked about being tested every day and with a high risk pregnant wife, I was happy to be tested every day. No problem benefits is GONNA pay hundred thirty bucks for my tests. Every day I'll drive right over and get that Kobe test well, and they moved us twice in the last two weeks out of the main building media room into the practice facility. Then back into the main lobby was where the they moved us to last week. Now, I wasn't there because I was. At Sky Ridge waiting for our little girl discharged, and so I didn't get to set up a desk near all the trophies which would have been pretty cool although it's echoes hell and they're so my reports would have sounded like crap anyway. Now, the NFL because I did anything or anyone else has revoked all of our to instead it's not just me Jeff Bagwell, Mike Klis Ryan o'halloran, Arnie Stapleton, and the rest at every building in the League and so I'm saying all that to say. All right. This is one little change that the NFL's doing I hear that they were gonNA. Strip other people status as down to, and you might have personnel people that are normally in the. Building and other staffers that won't be in the building now until the end of the season. So one are you surprised to hear stuff like this and then to do you think because I I know I certainly going to get worse before it gets better I, I'll put worse than quotes. We're just GONNA more cases they're going to have to get tricky with the schedule. We'll see we eighteen and nineteen to that feel like an inevitability to you. It does unfortunately. And you know so far the the Denver broncos have managed it very well. and. Let's hope that continues through the rest of the year. They've done a great job with it and and here they are. You know they're trying to play. A contact sport, they're trying to play football during a pandemic. And so yeah, you're going to have to be flexible. I think there's GonNa be a week eighteen. I really do because you can only fill so many by weeks for these teams as we go along the Broncos, have already filled up thereby week. So that's not an option for them anymore and I and I think as we go along here, you're going to see. Other games, cancelled and other teams dealing with the covert outbreaks. That's just how it is I. Think they're doing a good job with it they're trying to do this in not in a bubble. You know the NBA NHL handled it amazingly in a bubble. You know and did incredible job. Baseball did a pretty good job with it to not in a bubble and the difference is this is a contact sport. and. It makes it a little more difficult but I I like the way they're figuring things out. they're managing it there mitigating the the problem and so far. So good. What are we in five games now for Denver? Six. Six for the League. Yeah, I think we can get there I. Think we'll get through. A sixteen game season for all the teams but it might take an extra week or two, and here's the thing I know that you will absolutely one hundred percent. Well, regardless of what weeks who were both Sunday occurs in you'll be sitting down like you do every year and watching the super bowl fingers crossed that we used to do it in in larger groups because we've turned a corner as it relates to corona virus but I'm I just watched Kobe. Kobe. Kobe. Team Lebron win a championship more than a year after they started the regular season. preseason training camp same with hockey more than a year. Later, we're watching baseball on essentially empty stadiums. They get nine thousand people that will see for the world series or whatever that number is down in Arlington. And I'm fine with it. I'm GonNa Watch the masters in November, and I certainly watch the super bowl a couple of weeks. Later, the NFL wants to be a slave to this calendar and I guess it doesn't do them any good to to keep saying, yeah we'll add week eighteen will week nineteen, sixty cross that bridge when you come to it but they have to have a million schedules written up at the League office ready to adjust on the fly and have Tampa on notice and maybe some other cities about doing playoff bubbles leading up to Tampa Dallas L. A.. Saying we're going to have the first few rounds of playoffs in those cities and I'm fine with it. I'm still going to watch every single game every of every game. Absolutely. Yeah. I will too. I don't care when they play the Super Bowl. I'm going to be watching it. To me, that's a testament to. American. Per. Perseverance. American ingenuity it makes me proud. It makes me proud when I see how we as a country are able to manage this it's still keep our lives going. It's still keep doing things that we like to do. And do it in a safe way. It. Does make me. It gives me a sense of pride. There's no doubt about it. And let's just keep this going man and you know we're learning more and more about this virus really almost data day. things that we know now we had no idea. When they started back in in March and that's why they completely shut everything down. Had to figure it out. Well, they're figuring it out. There's enough drugs that work. We know that through. There's a vaccine that should be out here soon at least for. Emergency workers than probably then essential workers. And then they'll get down to people like you and me that don't matter that much. But we're getting there man we're getting there and and it makes me proud to be an American absolutely speaking of the Super Bowl the super bowl champs are coming in and we don't need to dissect how good they are. But you've watched him some lose against the raiders to when we ended up with a plan by week. So do you think the Broncos have enough based on what you saw in New England where we know it'll be fifty, seven, hundred fans there That'll be the number through the rest of the year. At least that's what we've been told to this point will those fifty seven hundred fans be walking out of their least ones weren't broncos jerseys with a with a smile? Sunday. Does it like a realistic possibility knowing how good this team has been? Yes, and the chief team is very, very good. We all know about but sure look at the chiefs. Against the chargers. A few weeks back, charges hadn't beat. The chargers and what are they? One one four One. Five hundred forty, four, they had yeah. You're right. Did that game was one I mean it was all but one it looked like the broncos in so many Angelina recently where they are dead to rights and then. You know the visiting team or the again ends up stealing that win. With a rookie quarterback. Charlie. Zero fresh. So so yeah. When you look at that of course, they can beat the Kansas City chiefs probably not likely but it can be done and this would be a good test for the Denver Broncos to see how they stay how they fare against the World Champs and I'm sure they're they're licking their chops they're ready to go. THEY WANNA play the best now it would be you know obviously better if you had cortlandt sutton back and von Miller back and you could add in. Some. Of these guys that that have gotten injured along the way I would feel a lot better about it if we had. You know a healthy roster but. You know you got you got you play who you who you have on your roster and. And these some of these backups, these twos and threes that normally wouldn't get a chance to play at all. There's been a few of them that have shown that they belong in this league I'm taking Michael Ocho Moody and particular. A cornerback I if boy a doesn't get hurt. We probably don't see much of him at this point of the season. But he got thrown into the fire and every single week he's gotten better. You gotTa feel pretty good about him. Now, if boy comes back against the chiefs, which looks like that's a pretty good chance. Now, you've got this rookie that you can use in various packages as well and he's shown that he can play. Yeah, I think the future is bright because of the building blocks that this young team has and I it's so funny I raise ready to give on the season going into now this week and we'll see what happens. Well, we we know how good the chiefs are but their losses. I think. Are Two teams that are combined fourteen in in our all three leading their division. So Two undefeated teams, and then we know how good the bucks are the bucks maybe by the time it's all said and done the most complete team in football sell. Yeah. With you. Now before I, let you runnin and I've trick you again because you said, let's do a quick one and of course, I always steal more time than you your brain but it's because you love talking to me and love the great broncos daily podcast listeners. was there anything that you? Didn't get to use. Sunday that use it got a big laugh. I was listening to the broadcast as I. continue my twitter not dumb. tweeting slightly ahead of the TV and I'm beating the guys that are at the Game Live Rhino o'halloran Andrew Mason or at every road game and I'm getting INFO to that they're watching it. It's happening. It's got to be happening in. There is a split second before you dave say it but I'm able to pick a bunch of injuries and some other stuff. Thanks to you guys. So was there one or two things? Got The. We talked about I made a few comments again about the cardboard. Really cold in the stadium Sunday and they were all sleeveless. Over short. Sleeves. It's so I made some comments about how they were called and you know maybe that's why they weren't making much noise and they at the end when the game was in question, they were sitting at the edge of their seats, but we're just not getting enough out of those cardboard cutouts and David Hypo. Said, you know we need some new cardboard cutouts okay. Because these guys have let us down a little bit. They're just they're just too quiet their stoic they just sit there stare at you. I think I did hear that they. Did. Yeah Yeah one thing I also never got the chance to bring up. The mccourty brothers here I find very interesting. They. gave the commencement speech at Rutgers last year. And that's where they graduated from and then they got honorary doctorates from rutgers. Okay and I was hoping I could could've worked into the game somehow because number one I think that's really interesting and number two I was going to ask Dave if he could talk to see you about getting both David some honorary doctorates in fact, I brought it up today on a radio show on Koa and. We'll see if we get any traction with that. David Football Helmet today. Wow, because he doesn't have a football helmet. So the next step is to get the honorary doctorate from CEO. At the very least Metro, which is right there from where you guys call the game she's like Metro state could could send one over. I'll take an honorary doctorate from red rocks community common I don't care I. don't care where I'll just take. I'd like to get a whole wall full of honorary doctorates. Or the one that makes the most sense University of Phoenix Online right They've got a lovely online campus as pretty an online campus. He'll see you phoenix is your second home these days. So I'm going to push for that. Okay. Well, thank you. Yeah. Let's get this going. I wanted to put that out there Dr Recruits. We'll see if we get new bite. All right. Well, I'll just start calling you doctor and we'll see if it sticks and then. And then we can just tell everyone honorary degree. We tell you tell people that stuff that may or may not be true that you're not even. Sure whether it's true other than we know you're the first person to put a corona and lime at least in America and so we don't know if that's true. With the backwards that is. Trump saying of the other claims well. Sure but I'M GONNA start calling you doctor and then when we tell people that you have An honorary doctorate from University of Phoenix online or global which we know sponsored. Stuff on the broadcast maybe we can say that you've got an honorary doctorate from there. So Dr Lewis. Who certainly your doctor the world right I appreciate you let me steal more than we plan and I'll see you Sunday the stadium. DOC Louis Out. All right Dr Lewis at least Dr Radio Rick Lewis. Probably. Look all over the region deceiving and find someone give him an honorary doctorate or. Get honorary doctorates. So I'm pulling for for sure but he certainly a doctor a radio and I'll I'll remind him of that. So I appreciate you listen. We won't have one tomorrow GONNA talk to hopefully Kevin Harland. But definitely, my guys Josh Klingler Imbaba Vesco you get a preview of the chiefs on Friday I'm on vacation but you know podcasts must roll on so. Spacing out a little but wanted to make sure you guys could get the. Weekly dosage of Rick Lewis and keep the podcast.

BK Breaks Down the Steelers Game with Paul Klee

"Tena No is not the same thing out at the Fisher. The Fisher House I know is a huge part of recovery for somebody like my husband for them to know that their family members are being taken care of that's a huge burden off of them. So they can concentrate on their therapies just having that assurance that no matter what as long as we were there for Anson that someone would be there to take care of us. Took so much weight off our shoulders. How can you help go to fisherhouse Dot Org? There will be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with Brandon Krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs in the Pasta. I normally start the podcast by wishing everyone. Happy Whatever Day it is but. When your team loses it's tough to call it a happy Monday arnold such things as moral victories. Thing is moral victories at least if you ask most athletes. They'll tell you that a moral victory doesn't mean much I. Guess It depends on the opponent and where your team is a Broncos team, they think they're going to be pretty good this year and then what happened yesterday in Pittsburgh where you had injury to insult with the drew lock shoulder issue and they're bummed today I talked a couple of layers post-game via text and they said the same thing that there are no moral victories but the team wasn't down. So that's encouraging and drew lock didn't seem down. He actually joined US post game. On the Zoom Conference Calls Kinda taking you behind the curtain. Normally in a post game, you're bouncing around the locker room and as far as what's happening at the podium. Coaching quarterback GonNa talk always, and then usually a player to three other players will talk depending on the type of game who had big games and who wants to talk at the podium podiums in a separate room from the locker room. So you Kinda have to run down the hallway and get if you want to be. Present for those podium interviews usually I'll go in coach and quarterback at first, and then my way into the locker people are doing live TV channel nine, Channel Four, channel thirty, one, channel, seven, they they'll be in their ESPN NFL network. They'll be in the locker room and not even worry about the podium stuff very often or if they do they get it from a separate feet. So rundown after those first two, 'cause usually they might hey von Miller. Go refillable. Later and off to the side don't want to talk to a couple of guys their locker or do I want to be there for her or linear whomever Justin Sevens, whoever it may be. But now in this zoom era that we live in, we know we're getting coaching quarterback and then we don't know after that. So you have an idea who it's going to be thought. It'd be no fan because he scored could have been Melvin Gordon because he scored, but it wasn't usually adjusted simple talk he's talked after the last two games it's been about four other. Players after coaching quarterback four or five I. Guess. So Dalton Riser was in that mix, and then we find out after Justin Simmons that we're going to get through lot. So drew lock dealing with that shoulder injury and there's plenty of speculation out there by the time you listen to this could be concrete if you listen to this on the early side then maybe you'll. You'll. Be Surprised. When you hear the news, people are saying two to six weeks. I've seen that reported a couple of places I talked to somebody pretty place with the broncos. They said it's silly to speculate before the MRI because that will determine the damage. In the course of action we remember term semi don't remember Trevor Siemian gets hurt against the bucks early in two thousand sixteen and then Paxton Lynch has to come in and play part of that game which the broncos won. I think. That was a game where they had to have the lightning delay in left field, and then the following week they played Atlanta. In Paxton's only start and then Trevor Siemian was back and ready to go the following week. So maybe less than two weeks, it could be longer than six weeks It's just silly to throw a number out there based on what medical experts say when you don't really know what the injury is. We know it's not an AC joint that was put out. By Adam Schefter and that was shot down I was able to confirm that wasn't the case in and I think Mike, Klis put out there as well that it's not an AC joint sprain which is what Portland Sutton has. Some people tell you. They think it looks like a dislocation looks similar to what happened with AJ boy when he hit the ground, well, like I said drew lock came in post game and it kind of surprise us that we were going to get them because again, we're operating even the people at the stadium don't know what's going on there up in the press box I was here in Denver Getting Ready to do my Broncos postgame show. Postponed Game I guess. And then drew lock popped up. So here's drew lock following the game with a shoulder innocent. He's wearing a black t-shirt and the black sling, and so you'll hear US talk to. Drew, we can see there obviously with your arm wrap can you give us any kind of updates to what type of injury think it is or any insight as to what's going on? Taken. Care by day but I'm optimistic about it. Check out tomorrow morning. Explainer or separation dislocation or anything. Nothing yet. Right. You're on the silence you tried to throw a little bit. Did you know right away? That wasn't feeling, right? Funny. When I'm not gonNA blow it off portion on how funny itself it just you know I've been throwing the whole life it. Wouldn't say that. So felt normal right off the bat. So. Came back in here. And just tried to assess situations he will do. Naturally live the pain too much but. You're trying to make them play there you you looks like you might get out of trouble. Did you feel the guy behind jet just take me through that play if he would. Yeah, it was. Not Tried to get out. Then I'm stumbling I'm going around. Tried to keep my feed. Then at the last second I fell to. Try, to. Tuck it. hops you walk him out gone weird. Tuck, it lasts. Under. Her we work with after squall someone. Seen much of him but what Disease Chevron to you in practice and everything that allowed him to be reasonably well today. Yeah. He's One of the more consistent people in our building every single day. Work, he helps me astronomically every single day. And you know I knew that. When I came back in here and watch the Game Houston about their play the game for US extremely smart. They're reliable guy. He's going to stay around this league for a long time because you can go in and play games like that with. Without getting any reps in practice a game plan. WAS FOR MITA FLOYD OVER GAME All the practicing forget about their weight did. Super, problems from game to. Knots Naini situation for the end but. He did a really good job lesser remind Toyota. Andro your injury was kind of similar in some ways to last year in the preseason game, you're stumbling on a sack and. Fell awkwardly anything you can take from going forward because obviously you know quarterback has to somehow someway stay healthy. Yeah. That's What you gotta do stay healthy as a quarterback and. You know kind of goes back to just my style play like did not run in like. Nor make Both Times it was. It was close maybe gotten out of it. In got hurt. You know I won't sit here and tell you that if I'm close to maybe getting out of making a big play forest is GonNa lay down and take. On the cigarettes. And just to. Not have these Awkward Things Happen But I don't know there could be a sight adjustment into what I think is A. Made all escape. I'M GONNA stick to my guns. Six of what got me aired ill will help us. When a couple of games share what's going to help us where? Games this year you're. Here you're tough guy but where do you go next you get an MRI and because it's your throwing arm does that create a little more caution or how do you perceive or because of the needs of the side of the body happened to? we'll. We'll probably do an Mr Island. Yes. Yes There is a little bit more caution in there. Yeah. I know this is a little bit of a bigger picture kind of thing but you had a lot of close losses last year when you were sidelined and then you had a couple of close calls this year how do you get over the Hump? Redundant it's just what everyone tells union fell at the end of its. Global plays the end of the game. And it just aches make one or two same with last week. We were really close again this week. They. have to go back and watch them. So as nothing to speak. Where for world? What happened but they'll always be plays you wash the game you lose he could help to win that game. Is just about. In sharp on forward. In those situations is It is the NFL. Me Rare Games By two or three scores don't into the fourth quarter. Run the clock. OUT GET A COUPLE OF STOPS GAME OVER BE Most of the time one or two plays the of the Games come down to the last minute last driving. We get better those situations. So drew didn't sound like a guy who thought he might be done for the year or on the shelf for a long again, you heard him say that he tried to throw it just didn't feel right he's been throwing a football, his whole life, and so then he went in and tried to assess it. But we're. Not, going to put a timeline on it until we hear about it and if you're listening to this before eleven o'clock, you can catch drew lock at eleven with Logan and Louis. If you're catching this after well, the nasal will be out there as for what the Broncos did well Jeff Driscoll came in I thought handle himself pretty well, he finished with. Two hundred. Fifty four yards. I. Believe Two, hundred, sixty, two, hundred, fifty, six yards on thirty four attempts. Eighteen completions. touchdowns wanted to know event one to. Melvin Gordon in all things. The one interception hurts, but it wasn't wasn't driscoll's fault. It didn't believe new Cortlandt Sutton injury and we need more update there because we were hearing need than we were hearing cramps or we thought it was cramps and then it looked like it was a need potentially. So we'll see what's going on with Portland Sutton but that wasn't driscoll's fault. He did throw the ball a little high but it hit court in his hands and then he receiver will tell you that if the Ball hits you in the hands you have to catch it but I thought all things considered I'm you sacked six times? There were seventeen pressures and seven sacks in the game that lock one obviously knocked him out of the game but driscoll team right there and on third into an fourth two they have a chance to pick up the first down and maybe go in and and score the one play that maybe wasn't talked about as much as it should have been and will ask. Maybe. Vic. Fangio about that today is the. Safety in the end zone on the fumble by Punter Saint Martin who to that point been as close to perfect as a punter can be in terms of his average placing the ball especially Monday night against the titans. And then. He drops out ball in the endzone take safety and that as much as anything could have been the difference in the game because when the broncos were able to drive down late. A field goal from McManus would have forced overtime. So I know that the way everything shakes out you never know exactly how it's going to unfold but that San Martin fumble was was pretty pretty costly. So we don't know how long driscoll is going to be the guy, but he's certainly saying all the right things. Here's driscoll post game with Dave Logan on Koa broncos. Radio Network you've been in this league awhile now, your fifth year and I know that being a backup quarterbacks, not the easiest thing in the world because you don't get a lot of reps during the week but you finish eighteen to thirty four in that game I mean how how based on what you experienced? How would you say you did in this in this opportunity? I, mean, in this league being a backup quarterback means being ready to go at all times Obviously, you never hope anything happens to to to your starter, but you always have to be prepared for when that happens and unfortunately drew in down today and You know my job is to give give the team a chance to win and You know we just didn't get it done today so. We'll have to regroup and. That's a good team that we played today and work at team. So we just have to move forward and make those critical place at the end of the game. You have a couple nice drives. Late in the third quarter, you guys are down seventeen to six, sixty, five yards in six plays and he hit Noah fant with a nice little corner route. And then you come back on the fifty four yard drive and five plays and Fine Melvin Gordon with the wheel route out of the backfield. to look like you know I mean this is a team that has led the league in sacks last three seasons. So they can put immense pressure on any quarterback and they were able to get you on the ground seven times today. Yeah. I mean we knew going into this week that they're good defense but we also know that we have a good offense. We have good players. You know some of those are some of those around me gotTa move around get the ball out on time especially when you're playing a a really good team with the front they have and Yeah. Just got find a way to get the ball out to my playmaker sands because like you like you mentioned, we do have playmakers field. No doubt about that last thing and I thought because I you know we're aware of the kind of athlete you are and. How you can run the football I thought a couple of times when you went empty that there might even be whether designed quarterback drawer just a way to get up inside did it ever cross your mind with something like that in terms of you just run the ball up into that defense? You know with the flow of the game that's just not How how things? Happen sometimes, they happen naturally sometime they're they're called plays and I think there's probably where I could scramble for a first down conversion. And I. Tried to scramble around and make a play sure in the first half but but yeah, I mean that's part of the game and. Those happened organically and sometimes they're called so dumb. With holiday went those just in. I you know what I know. You never look at losses a good game, but if that your performance was pretty doggone good. So congratulations hang in there we'll talk to you next week. Thanks I appreciate it. And so I do think that driscoll will play again this week against Tom Brady and the bucks against Shaq Barrett in the box but. I don't know if that'll be his only start of the year so we will find out. More from drew lock later morning and see how the MRI goes. As for Vic, Fangio, you can hear his disappointment. He returns to his home state of Pennsylvania although he told us the other day that Pittsburgh's really nowhere near. Scranton ones in kind of southwest part of the state and one in the northeast Scranton being more in the northeast a lot closer to Philly and he concerned himself affiliate guy he's Fan of those philly teams big. Philadelphia Phillies van and and certainly a sixers fan. Here's VIC FANGIO post game though with Dave Logan talking about his young quarterback and what? He saw in Jeff Driscoll after drew lock went down Of course you'll hear early. Questions about injuries to other injuries of note, by the way demarcus Walker and Dream Aunt Joan's I. DON'T BELIEVE FINISH The game. So we have to keep an eye on those two D Lyman. Likely, you'll see a Dean Williams call up this week from the practice squad, but do the Broncos and you decide someone because they don't have any other D. Lineman out there and you can't go into the just forty line, and at least typically you wouldn't. So you have to comb and other teams practice squad and add a player to the active fifty three versus bringing Sean Williams up and so we'll have to see what's going on there as well. All right here's VIC Fangio game with Dave Logan on Koa Broncos, radio network. Let me ask you to start with the question on everybody's mind back here in Denver. Do we know the extent of the injury to drew lock? Not yet. We're going to do more tests. That's when we get back. Don't really know the severity. Okay. I thought that Jeff Driscoll, difficult situations came in he did have the interception but the Baldwin right through Portland's hands. But I thought driscoll at least kept you in the game engage few chances from the quarterback spot. He did you know he gets limited reps during the wake practice? Especially this past week would it be in a short week? And I thought under the circumstances. He did a very admirable job. You know defensively, you wind up giving up four, hundred, ten yards you're not going to be happy with the the two long runs in the long run fifty nine yards late had the one play to klay pool of eighty four yards. I mean you have to take the game in its entirety but I thought for the most part you cap the steelers in check they were to for twelve on third down what did you think to stand on the sideline with your defense? I think those two blades you hit it on the head. Those two plays the drop interception and the. Fourth into. You know. Were probably. ruined. Pretty. Damn. The day otherwise defense, but that's the way that. You got to. Give up the big play. He's obviously you gotTa make your place are there to be made. Hey. Last thing. I'll let you go your own to you. You've played good on a football honestly in both games at times you had your chances to win but in this league, your great, How many times you win what? What's the message to your team as you get ready for Tampa Bay, next Sunday. Alex going to keep on and the. Keep knocking on the door and. You know we got the right kind of people here. The right connor players show good fight. Our effort is good. We just gotTa keep pounded and we'll find a way to get through this. Okay, Vic. Thank you. Thank you. and. Again, depending on when you listen this, you can also hear Vic Fangio talk about the latest withdrew lock and what he saw when you watch game tape when he joins. Load and Louis at ten thirty five here on this Monday morning, you also find both those interviews if you're looking for. That one or drew lock after it happens again assuming drew lock happens I guess you never know. On Koa APP more on the K website as well. KOA COLORADO DOT COM mom Gordon nineteen seventy yards didn't score on the ground did have a touchdown catch no fan quiet in the first half. In fact, nonexistent in the first half in in some respects, zero targets he was targeted five times in the second half four catches fifty seven yards Jerry Judy with a couple drops again, not sure one of those really his fault but did finish with four catches sixty two yards. Portland Sutton just three catches before he got hurt, he did have a forty five yard there though that was obviously the longest play of the day for the broncos offense. So sixty six yards on three catches. Caja Hammer came into the game three catches forty eight yards. He's like a little bit more from that youngsters he gets involved in the offense in the coming weeks. He also had a Kerry for nine yards and you realize that jet sweeps and end arounds and reverses with Caja. Hammer are likely gonna go better than they will with no fant defensively Justin Simmons that lone interception and then he also led the team in tackles, which is something that isn't often a surprise. He Alexander Johnson both had eight Michael. Judy the rookie head seven. Bryce Callahan with five drill Casey for Jackson for Josie. Jewel for five players laid all. Sixty five defensive snaps that included Simmons who seems to never miss a snap knock on wood agreem- Jackson's to safeties two corners, Carolina Judea and Alexander Johnson never left the field josie jewel right behind them played just sixty three snaps to shy off that full boat and then Bradley Chubb Late Eighty six percent of the snaps played Let me double check the number of the sixty five snaps. Bradley Chubb was out there for fifty-six of the sixty five safe to say his knee is holding up drunk without there for seventy eight percent and they were a nickel because he saying Bassey was out there for seventy two percents of the snaps. Before we hear from Paulie who called in to the post game show with me on Koa as I was doing, broncos react overtime following my grace's broncos react you from Michael Login media because you accountability from a smart kid messes before he's smarter than me He's an engineer engineering degree is dad's an engineer So he's just a a smart kid and he's Obviously, a really good football player, but he did have a bit of a rough day with the chase will eighty four yard touchdown, the Johnson touchdown, and these are the things that you hope young kids learn from and can build. So here's Michael Judea Postgame, Hey Mike you take us through the long touchdown and know your technique was and how he got older. Basically. I just had. Hope. Play in. Your way to start signing last moment in those separation. So That's gotta be better before the pledges no one likes to. Michael. Do. You think this was. A welcome to the NFL type of game for you are. A couple of plays out there where. It like the band was was even picking on you there. Yeah I definitely think this one game I can improve on. There's a lot of me out there and my name was asked to be caught a lot to the game. So knows GONNA be long season a guy be better now. It happens to every corner in the NFL. You know that coming into this league doesn't make it any easier to deal with a game like today because you know that. One, hundred guys have gone through it before one hundred guys go through it. It's it's a tough one to swallow but. you know this is a game w build offer. You have short term memory put this at the back of. Becca the back of your head so that you can do it off in now that happened in. So definitely anymore, but it's definitely To. Go to build on. Jonker, a few more editor Michael noticed Samir teammates coming up to you kind of picking up a little bit what were they telling you to kind of keep your Chin up after getting beat like that. It's mean all of them. They all have my back. So it's when we got you. Do what you do to get that. You do what you do that Gotcha dear, you know you're playmaker reduction of back. So you just keep playing back 'cause stuff like that happens to our game. Michael when you're banged up in camp. Are You thinking? Hey, I'll be out there starting week one week two most going through had then fast forward us to now. During can't you're just stay in Reading Bank? Your name could be called any given week. So you know just stay radium proving was my mindset right hand in. No. Kinda see today that I mean anybody could be on the field suggesting ready last one hundred. Michael I know it may sound strange but are you glad you got Tom Brady right away here to bounce back Definitely, it's definitely after. Me Blessed to be an opportunity I was right now so. Like I said I. Got Better Better. So next week. This show or so you gotta like the young kid taken a accountability taken responsibility and and hopefully he. Lives up to his word and says. He has to be better you will be better. So we will find out here because he's going to continue have this trial by fire. There's a reason that big fangio stood up on the table so to speak in wanted. Michael Judy and the third. Is a big third round as a broncos also got Lloyd cushenberry and. Gm I left him off when I was talking about alignment. Any Dad they have ninety, five there. So that's one and then Sean Williams's to maybe about those guys play this week depending on how Dream Aunt Joan's and demarcus. Walker are feeling. All, right.

So without further ADO, columnist Paul cle- esteemed an award-winning writer he join me on. broncos react and it went like this. When you see go down in the first quarter but do pre was burying down on them and then drive them into the ground bounces off of my I. Guess. My my reaction was actually listened to today's and Mr Lewis on the call because I figured out that it was ahead of schedule or ahead of the TV version and the best in the business. But when that happens, the first thing that comes to mind is I hate to say it man but you wonder if this guy's injury pro. And it's it's been two years to injuries like this different freaky awkward type deals. It's a mouthful and I hope it's not true. He played a whole bunch of games that Missouri Played Twelve, twelve, thirteen and thirteen games at Mizzou. But this is two years in a row and that's the one thing that. You just don't. That's the one label you don't WanNa be handed. is injury prone because that was a really freaky deal, but it's the broncos are in big trouble without injury. Well I. Guess we'll see. What the says and is new weeks four weeks six is it longer? I was told by somebody in the. Is Pretty high up to speculate on timelines right now it'd be. Irresponsible. Not that those timelines maybe actually be come. True. But until there's an MRI, guess exactly what the damage is and what the recovery will be is a is a little premature I'll my. Guess I. Don't say disagreement with you but I'll take a slight exception to the idea that he's injury prone because of the freakiness of the of the injuries you fall to the ground you're banging your thumb that is fluky right you get tackled to the ground and land on your shoulder. That is a fluke if you're running and you blow your knee out for the third time like Jake has done sometimes he's been hit other times when he hasn't. You can make the case. He's a little more injury prone when it when it's Fluky, not sprains his ankles all the time or he always pulls hamstrings. He's always he's always on the shelf and I get that. It's sort of like the idea of good teams find out to find out owing is bad teams find out how to lose right figure out how to lose. So the idea that just keeps getting hurt they're all freaky but that's of the thing you know Tony Romo's was a fluke injury, but he had had back injuries and neck injuries to that point. So it's one of those things where I'm going to disagree a little but I'm not going to minimize your point that the longer he's the worst it's going to be certainly for the broncos. Yeah. This whole deal I mean this turnaround that I think you and I kind of. I guess predicted I. You know going into this thing before von got hurt before Portland Lindsey Aj. I mean these are. These are top shelf guys in this whole turnaround was predicated on the idea that you know call him a sophomores even though they're not just like turn the Sophomores, Bradley Chubb Employees Sutton Philip Linzie, these guys these last couple of job classes who looks like really good players. Well, it's this is built around them and what they could become, and now a lot of those guys aren't playing. You know having not having still linzie out there today it really hurt I think. Bradley. Chubb now gone nine Games without a sack. That's no longer fluky. That's a long time for a top five pick to go that long without a sack. So he's gotTa start disrupting things I heard your interview with him before the game you're driving back from. So it was a fantastic interview. I. Like to call him the CEO because he's one of the smartest guys in the room and he knows what where football can take him There's gotta be a lot more production there. So these quote unquote sophomore guys have only been around for a couple of years, but we saw enough for them to think that they were going to take to take the broncos back to where they used to be They gotta get more out of them, but you also gotTa have to have him on the field and right now they're not. Yeah and right the goes back to the age old. The best ability is availability and big. Al. called in last hour which I appreciated because when I can talk to Big Al, it's always GonNa make my show better. That's for sure and his issue was kind of the same as yours just more disappointed as broncos fan that. We didn't get to see the team ever at full strength because of Lynn Vaughan went down. So you didn't have you don't have on anytime soon in May not get him at all this year. It's maybe wishful thinking that that he gets in at any point that he recovers from that surgery. You had Portland Sutton for a quarter and a half before he goes down and only a quarter withdrew locker less AJ boy looked really good in the first half last week and then he goes down you you don't think it's season ending or going to be that long. But long enough that he's missed to your point about Philip Lindsay had they had him as they were trying to the. Third or fourth in to maybe Lindsay and their changes. The play called Pat Shurmur makes not Gordon or Roy Freeman or whatever the case may be and and so I'm Kinda right there with you in terms of an with big. Al. Do that it is disappointing at the same time they took two teams that are maybe the best defense is a face all year and we're right there. You know toe to toe blow for blow with them and had. A chance to win both obviously they were leading here Monday, and and we're two yards away from the store in the end zone but making it where you would have liked the momentum to punch it in the end zone. So I tend to look at it as a glass half full. Now, if we find out drew locks out six weeks, then we probably are talking about draft picks and do you end up taking forever not to draft Trevor Maybe to trade him or to draft him and decide who's better lawrence or lock I don't know but you'd have you'd be able to get so much draft capital if you had the first pick if you still believe in drew lock. Somebody may call you crazy if to trevor turns out to be the next Andrew Luck or John elway. But? If. You get three number ones out of it. I don't know so. It's was I'm not pushing the panic button but that's because I talked to some guys after the game and they're not pushing the panic button in that locker room. Right. This is a This reminds me you know a lot of folks around here watched decades of Kansas City chiefs, various types of collapses, and it's like the chiefs would always find a way to lose a game. And it was kind of like the I can never watch the end the final destinations 'cause I get scared but you just didn't know how it was gonna go but you knew it was gonNA end really bad. And that's what the Broncos feel like. The best thing you can do next Sunday watch the I. Fifty eight minutes of the game and then go to the park and play two hand touch with the kids. 'cause the last two minutes. It's GonNa hurt in some way it hurt and week one at hurt this week. It hurt what four times last year in the last minute something crazy like that. It just seems like when it comes down to the point. You don't see the body language on television as well as we can. But by the end of that run last year when you're losing games and crazy ways, there was a feeling in my higher wherever they were playing that they're gonNA find a way to lose this thing. And that was the one thing I was really hoping this team would be snapped out of because that's what it felt like today it was a totally different way to lose, but you just Kinda knew wasn't gonNA end well, I I think that it would it tickle as much 'cause big Al makes a great point there it's a disappointment. That wouldn't tickle as much Caja Hamblur doesn't look like. Sh-. was good man yeah. Really good. What about Jerry? Jerry you looks really good I mean he's he's like he's football Kyrie you know yeah. Two years he's just working in as little phone booth and somehow he loses his guy at each opportunity. So those guys stunk up the joint then you'd say, Oh, this season doing but you just wish you see all these good players on the field together and so far you haven't been able to well, then I'll let you run because you're. Trying to get back in this one. As running on third quarter and I think they just cut to eight. With a chance to cut it down even closer. So Paul Paul clearly the gazette at by Paul Klee funding for you. What is your expectation of this team here now in these next few games you get Tom Brady and the bucks in front of fifty seven, hundred fans. We'll just go with the assumption that you don't have your lock this week we're not gonNA make long-term projections. So driscoll versus Brady. The the match everyone's been waiting for. Then you go to the jets who are crappy and Adam, Gates may not even be the coach by then who knows Although I think they'll let us take a little while longer and at the pats this past teams of tough watching right now in. SEATTLE. So what do you think of the next? Three or four weeks especially this week with no driscoll what's your? Assessment of where this team is. Yeah. Yeah. You will be you know how I feel about handsome Tom. He's on the he's on the yoke. It's level for me He's a blueprint for manhood and I can't see the I can't see the broncos peace talks weekday looks very good today. So I think he's dropped out one I think over the next four weeks I think this team ends up some around two and two over those four days. So next four games and its survival mode this is going to be a season in which we see some really strange things but I also think you're going to see the best teams. In meeting the teams that are coming back a lot of good players and established program, those are the teams that are going to be steady and one of those is the chiefs they're going to keep rolling along so. I don't know that this Broncos team is built for a corona virus pandemic because I don't think the depth is quite there. Yet what I'm hopeful for as you cross your fingers, you get some of these young guys back and you just make yourself competitive through a very difficult situation with a backup quarterback. Well The sun's up broncos fans, and that means that there is another day to fight on. Hopefully there's a bounceback win against the bucks. Jeff. Driscoll can lead the BRONCOS team cheer for grown up. He grew up in. ORLANDO. So odds are at least a small chance at the bucks or the team that he cheered for. But fingers crossed the news isn't too bad Andrew Lock Thanksgiving to Paul. Ob enjoyed listening to that rick? Lewis should be my guest tomorrow keep follow me on twitter all day as I'll be tracking the drew lock 'em where I movement as well and what happens there with his injury.

BK Goes Behind Enemy Lines with Shaq Barrett

"There will be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with Brandon Krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and Pasta. Happy Thursday broncos country. Let you know how the season's going to play out as we get into a normal schedule next week we'll not but. The goal in a given week is going to be on Thursday to start to look at the opponent and go behind enemy lines, and in fact, this week we're going to go behind enemy lines with an actual enemy. So to speak Morrow Pal, Shaq Barrett, who still makes his home in Denver and As a former C., as Iran loves this part of the country but right now is ripping it up for the bucks although he doesn't have any sacks yet. He did lead the league in sacks a year ago. So we'll let shack tell us a little bit about the box in and what they do well, as well as how they're going to approach things with the broncos. So that's coming up in just a little bit and we're going to hear from big Fangio. bryce Callahan Jeff Driscoll Injury Judy is a get ready for the bucks. Remind you about our friends from chug water chilly who are helping bring you this podcast. Chile's a gourmet spice of western life. It's at a grocery near you can use chug water be K. if you on line to get twenty five percent off chug water chilly products at chug water chilly dot com we made this white chicken Chili last night and use chug water chilly Julie Battery was awesome. So chug water dot Com Promo Code CHUG WATER BE BK before we get to breaking down the box and starting to look at what kind of team Tom Brady and Bruce Arians have coming in here as well as Shaq Barrett yesterday was I. I'm Vic Fangio. The fines and so here he is explaining. Why he likely incurred the hundred thousand dollar fine that not only he received but Kyle Shanahan with the niners obviously. In Seattle and then the to Monday night coaches, Jon Gruden in Vegas and Sean Payton with the saints. dinged one hundred grand as well as they. Call their organizations as it probably some of the assistant coaches two, hundred, fifty grand. So That's how Roger Goodell Leagues and a message to keep your face covered. Is there an argument to be made that? Because they're being tested every day that they don't necessarily need to keep their face covered possibly but they are in a lot of ways and example for everyone, and the League is all about safety, I especially as it relates to its covert protocols so. Here's Vic Fangio as to why he thinks he got dinged. Obviously I'm going to have to do better with that. What happens. During the game is obviously I'm calling the defenses I have to pull it down to communicate that. So can be sent in to the players. When the officials come over and talk to nate, they pulled their masks down. Down Talk to them. When I have my mascot and after. I don't know eight to ten seconds. It starts fogging my glasses. I have to pull it down all those times where I pull it down I just got to do better at getting it back up more than I have been. It's all been subconsciously happening while during the game Costa the fine feel that feel excessive. Verdoux you think that was sort of the point what they you an organization with the send a message to you and the other teams that got it. You know the League determines the fine amounts and. We abide by them. Can you at least some solace real in knowing that all their money goes to charity NFL charities where the money goes to a little bit about it. S Great. Any spare change can go to terrorist. Living in a world where one hundred grand is pocket change. I'm not there yet, but I will be if you guys by a bunch of water chilly who knows maybe sell or Go to draftkings use Promo, code vk, and maybe one hundred grand will become chump change or pocket changes. Coach called it here pretty soon. So you look at the bucks. And Right now, their offense isn't much better than the broncos offense there twenty four yards per game. The broncos are twenty-seventh their yards per play their twenty, four, th Broncos or twenty seven points per game. They're twelfth they've scored twenty seven per game. That's one of their best stats. The broncos thirtieth at seventeen and a half points per game. So they're almost ten points better than the. broncos through their first two games. Of course, they played against the saints and we don't know exactly what the saints team is. All I do think their defense is pretty good. didn't necessarily look that on. Monday. Against the raiders and then the panthers a pretty bad rushing yards per game they're almost identical twenty first and twenty third both just over one hundred yards per game so far. Passing game the Broncos, the Jeff Driscoll combos twenty six and Tom Brady two, hundred and twenty and a half yards through his first two games. He's been intercepted three times including a pick six, the broncos only one reception. So it's actually a top ten stat. Not a team too bad with fumbles right now though I guess one per game for the bucks, the broncos lost. One brigade as well. So they're tied at twenty third. So five giveaways though when you factor in the interceptions of the broncos three, their offensive line that's been great. They've allowed only three sacks Tom Brady so far that seventh in the League, the Broncos obviously all seven game last week against the steelers. That's twenty eight in the Lee on third down, they're pretty good at the broncos not so much their seventeenth broncos twenty nine. And then in the Red Zone the broncos twenty ninth the bucks using those big targets are eighty third on the other side of the ball the broncos. Yards per game is twenty compared to the three forty nine that. Tampa's giving up so far that's eleventh best their defenses top ten in almost every category the broncos top ten only show up in points per game fumble recovery. There's were. The discrepancies over the Broncos are fourth best in the League right now on third down defensively and six best in the red zone. Some of that may come with some field goals but nonetheless. They gave up thirty two point, one percent of. Third Down plays to convert for a first down but the bucks are secondly right now with five interceptions second and fumble recoveries fourth takeaways six and sacks even shack and hadn't gotten there. So it's going to be a tall task and they're good upfront. You'll hear Jeff Driscoll talk about that. And they're good on the back end with young aggressive corners and they've got tackling machines in the middle when you look at their two inside linebackers and Devon White Lamont David. So the Broncos all have their work cut out for him and Vic Fangio knows that there's still plenty of gas in the tank here with Tom. Brady. I think so You know Tom's one of the smartest quarterbacks that's ever played. You know probably right up there with him Payton and few others. And Don't take him long to learn something I can tell you that. I think he's I think he's doing fine. I. Know they're happy to have him and. You'll probably even get better as the season whereas as he gets the more playing time but. It looks pretty damn good. Me Embrace Callahan who talk to US yesterday for the second time in over a year the first coming during training camp said that he's not going to. Let up or think that Tom Brady doesn't still have his full arsenal I mean Tom grew very the go swimming never wanNA. Sleep on a guy like that. Even if he isn't it, you know look in the same that he has in the past we still an approach, the game. He's the man. So we WANNA. GET COSTS Callahan. The rest of the broncos secondary is going to be tasked with having to cover some really really big target to hear Shack Merit and talk about that as well. But Mike Evans is enormous. We know how big GRUNK is OJ Howard is really really big Chris. Godwin held a receiver and he's coming off concussion protocol. So he'll be out there. He's not very big, but he's a really really good. That's in the last year here's VIC FANGIO on trying to slow down those big receivers and is it a problem? It's a problem. They're not just the size that you mentioned. They're good players that just happened to be. Trial also. So They're all got a really good group receivers. You Know God win Evans Miller. Than the two tight ends that you're looking to grow. In. The OJ our you know those are bank guys, -CCOMPLISH receivers as tight ends in wideouts. Tough unit to defend, and now they've had for net in there and. They're going to try and pound to their running game. Boy Do. You pay running game opens up the passing game so. They're equally adept at running throwing there. Really it oftens on the other side of the Ball Jeff Driscoll knows that that defense and I mentioned is going to present some challenges. And they're going to have to play football against as far as Tampa goes another another challenge for us. This week. Really, good defense. They're very multiple in their reduce and. Like you said, they have a friend with a bunch of pro bowlers I'm name. So it's it's going to be a challenge, but we're looking forward to especially upfront where they're big and. And he still has plenty of gas left in his tank. He's upfront next Aviv as one of the strongest interior linemen, and then on the outside you got JP got Shaq. Barrett among others and so they'll. They'll get after it. As I mentioned they've already got five sacks in just two games at six best in the league. Jeff. Driscoll. Knows that his alliance going to have to. Hold up for them to have a chance Sunday. Yeah I. Mean they're they're great. Front I. Mentioned that earlier that really good guys off the edge but they also are really big and strong powerful inside and You know that's going to be a challenge. We're going to have to do some things to get the ball out quickly No I'm going to have to be valid with is to be able to get rid of the ball quickly because we know that the challenged front. We also know that we have the guys that can block himself. It's I mean we're aware of the. Of, the situation where aware of their talent level. But you know we're excited for the challenge. Also asked Bryce Callahan about the young corners because one thing just pointed out was that Bryce was a huge help to them last year even though he wasn't on the field because he knows Vic Fangio's defense so well, and here's Bryce now on he and k Jack in and just having to bring these two young rookies and quarterbacks, Oj Moody Michael Judea and e saying Bassey along. Justin Jack do a great job which just making sure everybody's on the right page the young guys were not to be. More alert. Everybody. Is. A. Song the right call, right so yeah, you could. Say. Were kind of coaching out there Be Easy edition now that they know the defense stuff in the Helping to. All right before we get to shack, we are a couple from Jerry Judy. I let off things asking here the obvious questions about losing their top receiver Hey Jerry I got to you the first Oh what was it like when you heard the news about Portland or from Portland or had you heard it that he was going to be done for the year? Hit that. No you were going to be even better play this year. Just injury being. Ovilla. So the wild labor do but you know you wanna hear when the teammates especially. Will. Stop physical down so Grateful Speedy Recovery Niche. Combat. Ship and then what do you like it or not? You're going to be looked at number one receiver by Broncos, fans and likely by opposing defensive coordinator. So how you look at that challenge? told, challenge to. Do Dry Patches. I am on. Sunday and then here's what I appreciate about. Jerry Judy Reading Number Fifteen. There's a reason he was most people's top receiver on their board and there's a reason he's going to be really really good I understand. There are a couple of drops but. There's a chance that he ends up. As the top receiver here in Denver sooner than later even if he's not thinking about that or you've got to true number ones when colon gets back healthy and that's going to be scary for opposing defenses plus factor in no fat and the rest of the night ends in the passing game but they're not there yet nonetheless, Jerry this is this is just who this kid is. He was asked by our pal Andrew Mason apparently for the second time is the NFL has anything surprised them so far I to. NFL Games. For on. AUSE football. A. Better. Do pointed at day on. Narrowly. Office surprise me. NOPE while football so I just appreciate the way this kids made up and you throw on the tape the broncos I, two games he just gets open. He isn't being jammed by anybody. He's really quick off the line. You're Green Jackson talk about how unique it was in preseason and he just doesn't. Seem to be phased at all by play in the NFL in fact, when asked about Bush's hit on them that causes sore ribs it kept him out of practice yesterday he said that he's. Not GonNa without saying he basically said that no, he just hit him right? It wasn't that it was the hardest hit it just kind of caught them in a tough spot and just kind of the perfect hit. So he was limited yesterday at practice and No surprise. Philip Lindsey out there. He's battling through turf toe. So that's obviously. Going to probably thrust him into that day today category Shelby Harris a little limited. He's dealing with some neck soreness trae marshals, hip and wrist has him limited as well Durell Casey's elbows bother him. So he was limited the Broncos also went ahead and put Mark Barron and demarcus Walker on I are. So I expect to Sean Williams will be elevated anytime soon, Blake bortles takes one of the open roster spots they did keep your lock on the active roster and I think that's so they have flexibility if he heals fast then he can practice without any restrictions. And then. They've got two spots left I expect those will be filled later in the week now with baron her on on the I R I bet it'll be Josh Watson PJ locked probably one of the running backs Cox or Bellamy, but they don't have to decide that until really late. Sunday and then for a couple of guys they'll get bumped up and their paycheck will go from. Likely Eighty four, hundred to thirty, five grand for the week. So it's good work if you can get it plus plan and NFL game. All right. Let's hear from a guy who's paycheck went way way up Shaq Barrett led the NFL in sacks a year ago in his first year in Tampa you'll hear he and I get into kind of the backstory as to why he left. and. What he was hoping to accomplish, and so he's not on a long term deal, but he did go from barely. Making the League minimum undrafted free agent out of. Out of. We mentioned we know the CNC Ram to now playing on the franchise tag that's going to pay him. Sixteen million bucks is here. So a million dollars game. That's pretty life changing money, and if he has anywhere near the year that he had, he's going to sign a multi year deal that's going to pay him about that for the next four or five or six years so. He's a great guy. He's always been great in the communities. I've been great to deal with any still live here in Denver in the off season. In fact, he showed up on CBS Four News Story Years Touch on at the end because of the wildfires by his his house old. House now as he tells us in highlands ranch. So without further ADO, here's former Bronco Shack. Barrett. Shock I know players try to keep every. Game the same. But for you coming back to Denver I gotta think that it's going to be pretty special in a little emotional for you on Sunday. It would have been less if I went backlash because I did have all those tough. But now I do I'm gonNA treat it the same but I have a little is going to be a little bit more special because I used to play down could have had a career buck. DICING rollaway a kind of show them bit they messed up our. Let me go but. I'm a I don't have a horror films that I used to have not been bronco anyone had. Home down here with the bucks in just taking advantage of the will and it's worth noting because not everyone does remember how things played out or the details the Broncos and bucks essentially offered you the same amount of money but. With Bradley Chubb and Von Miller, the opportunity to start prior to injuries, of course wasn't necessarily there. So you bet on yourself and then you end up leading the NFL in sacks and Tampa. But it wasn't like you wanted to just leave Denver you played your college ball here you're family loves it here you. Have your off season home in the mile high city but the opportunity like you said wasn't wasn't the right fit. So again, you bet on yourself and lookout paid off. Guess, Erin. Honestly for like the last like year or two today I was banking on leaving because I knew that matter what I did I wasn't going to get our soon as soon as somebody came back from injury I would have been the backup again or like they was always looking to upgrade deposition like trust me and. Just. Was a lot just keep like not even been able to compete for starting spot in my leisure like. They're like the last couple of years and just not what I wanted opportunity to compete at least and That's why I had to leave. Charlotte. But it was literally like nothing that America did to me is. Just opportunity to compete for four-star inspire wedding willing off. It was obviously the bucks were and everyone has some level of self confidence some people more more than most I. Know you expected to come in like you said compete in play? Well, did you think that you'd leave the NFL in Saxony in your first year in Tampa? That got my I like coffee deaths have digits. Sachs ain't going to be at high double digit sack total for that year but. I. Guess that was a plan for me like he's me up with me in. Let me learn a lot. Got Me behind some great players and ended up backfiring because I start over these great players. But when it was time for me to leave left and then came down here and let the plan go work then. Came out with practically twenty six and it was amazing also. Worked perfectly course. The other side of that coin now is that you do at once and there's certainly an expectation that you're going to need to do it again and do it consistently. You're not a multi year deal yet with the bucks they you a franchise tag which certainly i. Appreciate that huge pay upgrade but there's pressure that comes with having such a big year, right? Yes brasher but no more pressure than myself I know what I WANNA do every I know like what? I'll buy the production I. WANNA. Have every year to help the team win so as A. Literally is. Is a perfect coming for myself probably from my my wife and my kids that's about it listen to a of stuff on. The 'cause I put the most pressure on myself already as as. Well there's plenty of pressure on your team. Can you relate obviously with Tom Brady coming in he is going to be the guy that people turn to the most. He's got sick Super Bowl rings, but you're one of the few guys on your team that has a super bowl ring as well especially on the defensive side of the ball. So do you find yourself having to kind of whether it's lead by example or talk guys about what it takes to win a championship having been a part of a championship team even though so early in your career. we actually have really good lead out there on the defense and on offense in haven't been a super bowls they pretty much a come everyday with the energy. They know what to say at the right time and three times where I'd be wanting to say stuff but he always exactly what I was gonNA say your like like I loaded leaders we have on his daughter dog really good job and they come to work every day like with high energy light consistent little to no mistakes I mean like. This one of the will not win on. This is a great group lead. Yes. Like one of the best group believes been. Well. You've obviously been around some great leaders and great players in your time in Denver and I know that you really close with von Miller when you got the news of his. How quickly did you reach out to him and how disappointed will you be that? You won't see him lining up from you can't do a Post Game Jersey swap unlike I'm sure you were expecting to do not that you can't get each other your jerseys and you probably already have avengers if you really wanted one. But how how bummed were you when you heard the news? Yeah, I was very. Disappointed if on just for him. Because I know what they had to have one year to it and they. Show, I heard him on her in the. Day of I just sat my mastro's praying for him. I. WanNa Call Right in the over a lot of people probably have been reaching out and it was probably a tough situation of odor but I did talk to three days later he said he was feeling good. Highest Beer isn't just a just talking in just trying to. Give them confidence motivation but he was going pretty good. He had some plans in place and I'm just happy that he Looking at his opportunity to bounce back comeback stronger. Well, let me ask you to put on your coaches had a little bit and give away any game plans but. This team is really snake bit right. Now in addition Devan, they just put Mark Barron and demarcus Walker on I.. R. A. J. Boy already on I. are drew lock is an on but he's not playing. You're going to get a chance to shave chased Jeff Driscoll around. and. So without Portland Sutton as well on an offensive side of the ball, what do you see and maybe no Philip Lindsay practice yesterday I imagine it'll be a game time decision again. So the team that's his banged up what have you seen from this broncos team in their first two games the end up, but he's still running above pretty good if. Get in the line of push out front and. Gets the stale. They had a good my first half and running the ball I call on. So, we gotta be rail gotTa come in for about stopping the run in order to be able to go after address go a little bit. But get a good job of running the ball. He's gotta be on it. Well, that's up I'm curious because. Those of us around here, the watched team or trying to tell people that the airline is playing better than maybe you would expect Garrett Bowles seems to have really taken a step. So somebody who looks at what's going on up front with you know obviously through different colored glasses right now what do you see from this broncos aligned? Do you see the improvement that that everybody around here's hoping for? I think they did get better not they still getting better as we talk now. So he's watching from last year from last year. This is a big difference for sure you guys obviously. Well. So with her that Philip Lindsey, we know what challenges he faces, Melvin Gordon you're used to going against with his time and in in L. A. and San Diego do you see from the vet is he's now wearing orange and blue. That A. Little bit more explosive with all speed and spins and moves it usually at least the beg he was like a straight downhill runner. But he's been. Spending making people miss and that's A A good. That's good for him. But not it makes it a little bit harder for the defense gotta come wrapping up and tackle because he could spin out at the tables on. Speed moving and get downfield. Yeah like. Watching and he looks pretty good against his Berg. Shack I'm baited almost ten minutes before I asked you about Tom Brady and you you're one of the few people that has now had the opportunity to play with Peyton. Manning. Tom Brady. That's not a very long list. There's I think maybe one player ever that's caught a touchdown from both if I'm not mistaken and that's west, maybe maybe there's one other if if I can't remember but wes welker be being about it. So how has it? Been just I'M GONNA throw a couple of, but from the time he decided to become a buck. How much of that change kind of everything for that organization an for your locker room. Honestly they. Even, the Ol- quarterback Jim I think we fail had high aspirations the D like own thing I never been on the team was planning like or not thinking that it was going to play all go to the super bowl that wasn't a goal I don't. Change that often James the Tom, but I do think it. Adjust. made us more that we do have the team to be able to then shouldn't be no reason I. Get it done like that we don't get it done. But I don't think I'll goals or anything changed I. Think. We just we just. Not Pressing but we pressing to get it done sooner rather than later. Yeah. I to think that the roster makeup a big reason why Tom chose to come to Tampa I know that there are a lot of factors that went into it but having. Those monsters to throw to and that's what's crazy is other than Godwin. I mean looks like a basketball team out there in training camp were and I know you're not dealing with coverage too much. But when you look across the Bali man, how's anyone gonNA cover these guys when they're gonNA? Be Bigger than everyone, they, face. we'll definitely look at our. receive in colour. In. A. Bathroom like I don't know how tease gonNA cover every by you can't cover all of them. So agree with top coming. Coming down here because of these targets that guy down because it is hard to cover. A Michael Chris all now an Oj Cam and we got four net. Rojo. CEO. running Iraq right Matvey got a lot of them a lot of good pieces here and put it together and make it work. Yeah. If you're on a team where Lesean McCoy is your third running back you're probably in pretty good shape considering the career he he's at I imagine you guys got plenty in common with the Pennsylvania. Right talk in Philly and stuff. I'm curious to though in training camp preseason did you get? Did you get the Tom Brady a couple times and and at least let them feel your presence you're not gonNA touch your guy I get that but did you did you let them know? Hey, I led the league in sacks himself. Just make sure you know that I'm over here too just for fun. I really. See I say needs I live I know I'm not saying. I. Got Back there a few times, but it was A. I was. Pretty, much interested ready for everything that he was going to see in the. League. Is. Like glass like couple of weeks Tricia mercy why I'll then gave up. On like to me like the last couple of attack by he like he like. and. I was just trying to get him ready for all the people that we had to see. And a ended up by a couple of times. But yeah, he shut me down like the last week and a half two weeks you have to go into your bag of tricks remember the things from the Von Miller Pat Pass. Rush Summit to. To. Remind the rookie that that. Hey, you still got a little bit to learn roof although it is got to be encouraging when when a kid can accelerate is learning curve that quickly. Yeah most definitely and I was like, yeah, I was done everything that had Adam and then propen fellow I love it and the work, and he's most definitely most definitely ready to bill and everybody. So he was ready to go in probably. So the Games that he ready to do. So shack I mentioned the broncos injuries and who knows how the season's going to play out. But obviously you're where they're likely not going to have on all year unless he's a fast healer knocking to have Portland all year. Now with his knee injury hopefully, they'll get drew lock back sooner than later but the, but they are really banged up big Al and I were talking about this Sunday after the the Broncos and steelers game on the post game show on Koa that. It's It's often overlooked how much health plays into a team success and you can't predict the future and this has been a weird year all the way around. But do you ever think about it and you guys ever talk about the fact that going into Super Bowl fifty, you had your top fourteen defensive players not only do you have your eleven starters from week one get the wolf didn't actually start because he was spend but he on the depth chart as a starter at all eleven starters you Shane Ray and Bradley Roby so you're top fourteen guys that were there week one started super bowl fifty and we're available for Super Bowl fifty has come up in conversation how how healthy state that you`re I didn't even I know health is like the key everybody healthy or mostly everybody help us to keep. was as healthy as you just said, we was when we went into but Yeah like that's crazy. We have pretty much everybody and then some because we had. All pretty much all backup step in play like starters like from shy load D- to Bush like cave. Cave on like everybody everybody stopped government plan started caliber football. So like even if somebody like NFC's if somebody went down like paying down bright came in and stepped up like everybody like this is. How Jim Dandy force the come in and just think where I would have personal left off at a fill the void as best as we can. We did a really really good job with that and that's probably why we were so ready to go when super bowl came because we gave everybody a. Proper amount of time to heal it seemed like little to no drop off a shore and we was ready to go. If memory serves me right I think the only two guys that weren't. You know on the field that we're big part of what y'all did was Omar bolden and Bruton who went down in the steelers game with that broken leg even after he played sixty three snaps broken legs. Oh Yeah. It's something I'll be curious as you guys are in your playoff push down the stretch, not only key on your health but maybe it is something that you now that I've reminded you about it could come up in conversation Especially, if you get all the way to the end and I imagine before I let you go appreciate the time. It's probably been talked about is weird is this year is going to be and who knows when there's going to be full stadiums if at all but still we've never seen a team host the Super Bowl in their home stadium is out a conversation that at least been had in the locker room a little bit or you've heard talked about. Initially before we actually started playing football because it is like won't be something big historic for sure. But we know that that income without his work. So now I work where about the team ahead of that next week but initially, we did talk about that because the first team ever the door but. Now. NCO Salon and whereabout Beth fall. If you just take care of next game lead to where we want to be a well, you're next game is here against the Broncos is any of your family to be able to be there since it's GonNa be fifty, seven, hundred fans are they skipping this one and they're just waiting until they can go to the to the game in Tampa. F I have four people coming. That's already in Colorado France from college. Hire. Me Like on a like the breaks, my my man Chris, Christie Hill and he might come with his white in and then my past past sean he by come with his son Ashton Soda does us as family right is on be happy to get them in a stadium and a ball in front of them yeah. I mean that's one of those things where. It's Kinda cool because they did release tickets to opponent. So when the Broncos are going to keep having a few more fans are hoping to get to about eighteen twenty thousand at least until there's a vaccine that it'll be cool for someone like you who has so many friends here not to see your family is with you in Florida. So get to see you when the bucks open things, but you don't know week to week if it'll be empty stadium. So when you have that opportunity, that'll be cool and you know what? It's going to be cool for broncos fans to see. Obviously, they might not be cheering for your team, but I think they'll be cheering for you a little bit and then I think in other weeks, they will be cheering for you because you guys will certainly have a good look at at a playoff run and I know I'm I'm always pulling for your shack. So I appreciate the time I have no idea of I'll be able to see a- but only live about ten miles from each other I know at the very least. Off Season. And maybe you'll pop up on the news when there's wildfires by your house Oakley there aren't any more, but that was pretty amusing. On on the news obviously thankfully, no damage to your house Ernie any of your neighbors. But I appreciate the time good luck on on Sunday and good luck the rest of the whale Holler at you here soon. Around Bryant. In it. Yeah. We we move for neighborhood not another. Parker. So hopefully, shouldn't be nothing over there, but it is while life and a lot of greenery over this or could happy stale but. For just. So you know and you probably do because we had a news story on Koa yesterday marker is one of the. Quickest. Growing communities not that we didn't know that. But like it's made national attention offer for aware of what a great place to live. So it'll be good to see. Sunday at least on the field and and hopefully in off season back here. But thanks again and I'll talk to you soon. Good luck the rest of the way. Then Shaq Barrett. Dude so it's good to see. Good. Things happen to them like. Going from making probably. Couple of million bucks in his career, which is certainly nothing to scoff at to make in now sixteen million this year, which is. Pretty life changing money. It's like you can move from one Nice House to a much nicer house which I assume what they're doing and so. I'm I'm pulling for them maybe not so much Sunday I. Guess if he gets the after school once or twice and doesn't really affect the game here no big deal but. He's Playing for a big time big time. Contract and considering, yeah here's what he's made prior to this. He in his first three years. One, point, five, million then he made six, hundred, fifteen thousand and then he made on the franchise, the franchise tag but restricted tender two, point nine. And last year he did make four million bucks. And now this year sixteen million fifteen point eight. So a big jump for shack tomorrow James Palmer is going to help me take a look at the bucks as well. He's been embedded with them at times. In fact, all preseason he was there for a full month So we'll get his thoughts on the bucks and we'll hear from the coordinators here Pat Shurmur, and Donna tell among show I, appreciate your listening. Thanks for tuning in we'll get you next time on the broncos daily podcast.

I'm joined by my partner in crime. Evan evan how are you. I'm doing great. How fantastic sort of. I don't know my emotions are a tornado this weekend. man As usual we are here. To recap the falcons game. Today and their wit win over the broncos in week nine of the two thousand twenty nfl season. I know those have been rare to come by this year but they did pull this one out at home. they did. Beat the broncos. Thirty four to twenty seven in what can only be described as a very falcon game They went into the halftime with a twenty. Three lead ended up winning it thirty four. Twenty seven c. You do the math as far as happened in the second half. This was absolutely a frustrating game at times and fun at other times Evan what was one of your big takeaways from this game thinking about. Now that we've gotten through the emotions of it i think the big takeaway was. We got to see kind of i. I know julio jones played but outside of julio jones a lot of Inexperienced wide receivers. Who showed this team's full of young wide receiver depths. I mean allama dates Deep on a pass and scored He was the number one receiver on the day christian blake. Would i wanted to see more of him. Because i feel like he's the closest kind of julio type player we have In terms of you know the different towns on the wide receivers But you know he did. Pretty well Russell gauge wasn't as useful. I guess as i expected with calvin ridley going down You know pretty much stay in a slot But yeah i mean big takeaway is the falcons got up in kinda. Let them come back. They're set in rats on the edge more seats like they normally do. Yeah in that is very much. What the falcons are this year. Except this time to be fair. They held onto the lead. They did end up winning and they recovered not one but two onside kicks the game so that was a nice change from usual So injury situation coming in Was i think it changed the outlook of this game. I for the falcons. Calvin ridley with the foot injury. He did miss this game. I think they had listed him his questionable but he didn't practice all week and even coming in. It seemed like a big long shot for him to be able to play in this game And in for the broncos you know they were missing their two starting cornerbacks bryce callahan. In aga neither guy played in this game. They didn't dress. And you have to think that that was a big factor because these are actually two really good corners in this league a big part of that denver defense and missing them. I think was part of the reason. That the falcons were able to be successful at least early on so. We've talked about the injuries evan. What were inactive for the team's For coming into the game. Yes so Calvin ridley you obviously mentioned with that foot injury. Pretty much was considered day to day that monday. So dow look on him playing On sunday which is today when we're recording. This wasn't very good in. He ended up obviously missing. The game. So you know. He's got a bye week next so that she gives him plenty of time to heal up Also ito smith who for the second straight week. I believe i guess you could consider him a healthy inactive because he hasn't been on any injury report or anything And that's probably not a good sign for ito smith. Because all sins dressing who usually is the inactive running back by ever. Since i noticed ever since dan quinn was relieved of his duties. Ito smith has been Pretty much active. I mean inactive ya. That's something the monitor at least long-term for ito smith's future kids. I mean at one time. He was considered by some to be the better running. Back on the falcons team before you know. Obviously todd gurley signs so not a good outlook on him. dante fowler. We were with Without bolo excellent point. Yup yup both of our pass. Rushers were out tack. Mckinley obviously dealing with a groin injury. Still with a mix of immaturity dropped in their mistake. He tweeted at the team stuff. There's an article on the foul dot com. You can about it but Yeah he he's he was inactive and they called that early in the week. So i think that had to play you know in this. A lot of deodorant synon- Was inactive not really a surprise but You know adds to the weird situation. marlon davidson. Who came off the covid list Inactive and john wetzel who pretty much just assume he's always going to be inactive unless there's an offensive line injury But yeah and then on the denver broncos you mentioned bryce callahan. Aj bully being out there. Starting corners but also john spencer wide receiver and dress driscoll. Who i believe is their backup. Quarterback were also enacted so they only had four. We had seven out and pretty much We escaped the injury bug during the game. I don't recall any serious injuries or anything like that. Yeah i think the only thing that looked close was hidden hurts taking a shot to the head relatively early on the game but he continued to play so that apparently was not an issue for him and yeah as you mentioned don fowler anti mckinley. Both out and i said in a preview podcast the edges actually didn't matter because the broncos offensive line has two very good or decent offensive tackles. It was the middle of their offensive line. That was sort of a hot trash. Grady jarrett vantage today. And we'll get into that in a little bit but yeah thanks for pointing out fowler in tak missing and honestly taxes the one to watch going forward i think fowler. He's been sort of battling his injuries. All yours well. Attack is the guy to watch going forward because of the discipline issues with him as you mentioned So certainly you know we will keep up with that on this podcast and of course at the faculty dot com if there are any developments there. So let's get into the falcons offense. They did put up over thirty points today for the first time. It seems like in a while. So every once you recap some of the key. Statistics for the falcons offense in this game. Yeah so matt. Ryan had a pretty solid day twenty five or thirty five two hundred and eighty four yards three touchdowns and interception for a passer rating of one twelve point. One just an you know another great day by matt ryan overall. Todd gurley got it going a little bit Having nineteen carries for fifty three yards and a touchdown are long thirteen. Brian hill always playing that kind of change of pace back given early arrested at times. Had eight carries for twenty four yards. Didn't really get a whole lot. Going averaging three yards per carry but It is what it is I mentioned earlier. How the Allama days was the top. Receiver for the falcons. Along fifty one yard touchdown early on But he finished the day with or receptions hundred three yards and a touchdown Hayden hearse to pretty much you could argue was the one that benefited most from calvin ridley absent Had eight targets in caught seven of them for sixty two yards One of which was only four yards. Leo day who Julio jones had a day Five receptions fifty four yards and a touchdown The play that stands out the most to meet the one where he obviously scored on where he kind of sent the defender for spin Just by his running ability so yeah that was nice to see But yeah that's pretty much it on the offset offensive side of the ball. Brandon powell had random Catch for nine yards in touchdown So i guess he's still being used. I know a lot of people were hoping christian roland will get some usage but i think they like powell because they technically still use in now. Offense did not just primarily as special teams guys so so again another game where matt ryan has. This has been a trend in recent weeks where he's been spreading the ball around a little bit more. We're seeing instead of one or two guys getting one hundred fifty hundred forty yards We're seeing sort of what you just recap where you've got multiple guys getting one to perceptions and you know spreading that yardage out which i think is going to be important in this game with this broncos defense in certainly trying to take advantage of their two best corners being out is just find those opportunities no matter who it is if it's a kiss or blake fine. And that's absolutely what matt ryan did. As for the broncos defense coming in they have to good pass rushers. And i think the story for the falcons against this broncos defense was how well the offensive line played they they did give up two sacks but i think you could strongly argue that those sacks weren't about necessarily them blowing their pass coverage as much as was her pass protection one of them was absolutely matt ryan holding onto the ball too long and i think the other one was you know maybe just a him finding an open receiver but on the day Their defense really didn't do a ton of damage. Justin simmons had the only interception of the game. When matt ryan was looking for a kiss on the deep ball Down the middle. And honestly other that in the falcons played some pretty clean football and josie. Joel led the team with nine. Tackles the two guys actually did get. The sack was not there. It wasn't bradley chubb and it wasn't balik. Read demarcus walker with the one one of the sax in dramatic jones with the other so again for a broncos defense that i think is a got some really talented players on that side of the ball. The falcons offense really seemed to do their job in this game and in particular again that offensive line. I think is really beginning to become a strength of this team. Even when they're going up against a defensive line that's a little bit more talented than someone's faced earlier near surreally encouraging the see from them. Happy to see that. Even when we're missing. Calvin ridley missing that arguably wide receiver one b or when a this point you know. Julio is on the backside of his career even were missing ridley ryan still able to put up those types of yards and even with the talent that denver has gone against him so promising. Although i wanna say it felt like in this game dirk koetter again was a problem. In in some key moments including I think one of the sax that ryan took in the second half set up a second and sixteen and dirk cutter called a run up the middle for gurley that gained one yard on second sixteen. And i i'll know about you have and i was watching my twitter as that play got called and it was executed an everyone had the exact same reaction which was essentially. What the hell yeah. I considered tweeting. And i was like well. There's already twenty people saying it so leave it alone too conservative. i mean overall. It doesn't matter. But i mean the broncos were able to get back into it because they often right clearly if you watch the game lead off the gas Which you know. It's fine if you have complete confidence in your defense but you know the scores not going to show it. I mean it kinda does but the broncos were a get capture wanted them onside. Kicks away from being back in this game like we weren't we were sweating down to the last section you know. Oh absolutely i mean. Here's the breakdown for denver scoring in the game zero points in the first quarter three in the second quarter three in the third quarter. Twenty one points in the fourth. Quarter the falcons score ten ten seven seven so at least they were somewhat consistent but again it just shows you know as you mention they won but should never completely gloss over some of the issues that this team continues to have even under. They did close this one out But as you mentioned one of those onside kicks goes differently. We may be having a very different conversation right now. So and the second like really close. Rico's hands i fully jumped on and he had it completely But that second one you know dionne jones. I believe someone who ended up recovering it but yeah he got knocked around it on this and that was a close one. Surreal cerita talk about what the falcons did on defense. And what the broncos were able to do offensively against them but before we do that quick break. We'll be right back.

Joined by my co host. Evan burchfield recapping. The falcons win over the denver broncos thirty four to twenty seven in week nine of the twenty twenty nfl season. Let's talk about the falcons defense because for three quarters. Maybe in three and a half quarters. They were actually really really good in this game. And then the wheels starting to off Let's start with what the broncos did against them. Because as i mentioned earlier They scored six points in the first three quarters. Twenty one in the fourth quarter so ever want you tell us what. The broncos offense did collectively in the four total quarters. Yes so you know. Normally the script is struggle against opposing. Quarterbacks and i mean they didn't struggle necessarily but drew lock still had like a decent day He threw the ball ton. That was the biggest problem for the broncos. They had absolutely no running game But drew lock had twenty twenty-five throws Sorry twenty five completions for three hundred thirteen yards two touchdowns one interception in a pass rating of seventy seven point nine Had seven rushes for forty seven yards and a late touchdown Which was i believe it was sixteen yard. So i mean he ended pretty. Well is overall. I mean you look the biggest thing that stands out for. The broncos was built linzie having eight carries for twenty three yards. Melvin gordon six carries eighteen yards zero touchdowns amongst them They couldn't run the ball. You know and that's usually what the falcons have been doing at least lately quietly doing well in pretty much. Shut down the broncos running back but the person they did not shutdown was jerry. Jeudy who had seven receptions for one hundred and twenty five yards in touchdown one of them was forty one yards You know he. He didn't really get going until late. because early on it was like therefore while he only had one catch but is started heating up a little bit when they started mixing up different players when aj terrell was on him he was pretty much shut down but then at one point i think sheffield was on him. And that's pretty much. Where benefited judy. The most Hamler had six receptions seventy five yards. Noah fant three receptions forty five yards. Patrick had four receptions. Twenty nine yards and a touchdown but yeah overall not enough to you know you gotta have some more balanced than dim. Not having any run game at all kind of hurt them. The most than walk was forced to kind of make plays on win. So yeah. S for the falcons defense Ricardo allen had a late game in their section that It arguably was forced by grady. Jarrett's pressure up the middle on drew. Lock but it was nice to see that. And that eruption i think was incredibly timely. It ended up. Leading to a an additional touchdown for the falcons which ultimately they needed and That was the first time. Ricardo allen has really shown up in the wild so that was nice to see him come through with that play. tackles on the day. Foyer lucon seven tackles. He also added a sack. The only sack of the game dion jones had five. Kevin neal had four plus a tackle for loss greatest jarrett. I wanna talk about great jerry for second here because if you look at stats he had no sacks he only had one tackle for loss you would look at those stats and say oh will great. He didn't do much. And if you say that you would be coming away with the exact wrong impression. I don't think a player on that defense impacted this game. More than grady jarrett did. He was absolutely destroying the broncos offensive. Line up the middle during my preview. Podcasts i mentioned that this was the matchup that i thought would be the equalizer in this game. Grady jarrett terrorizing the middle of that line and just putting drew lock into a position where he was going to have to throw the ball the way and and or make a mistake and sure enough. That is the story of the game. For the falcons defense. Greg jarrett did what we thought he would do. Which was to terrorize. The opposing quarterback humiliate the guard center guard in the middle of elephants of line and even though his stats may not show a sack. It may not show you know. These multiple tackles for loss have faith falcon spans. It means nothing gravy. Jarrett is a game wrecker. He absolutely a visceral rated that broncos offensive line repeatedly and i just want point that out because when we do the recaps of the stats easy to find the guys that pop on paper but no one popped more on the field greg jarrett so as for the rest of the players i i wanna point out to others number one. Aj tyrrell who had a past affliction early on and has consistently been improving every single week to the point now where he is beginning to truly look the part of a wide receiver. One on this team are. I'm sorry. Cornerback one and being able go up against those top receivers. He has developed now into a very good corner in his rookie season and this is a season without training camp season without a preseason for those guys to get those snaps and terrell missing time early on with going on the cova list so fantastic game from him and in my opinion and i want to get your opinion on this as well. Isaiah oliver who has been getting a lot of hate from falcons fans as of late i feel is actually if if you were to ask me between him and kendall sheffield who was playing better right now bar nine. Oliver is playing better and one of the things he's actually been exceptional. App is open field tackling and he demonstrated that yet again in this game So what are your thoughts on. Some of these defensive guys i've mentioned including the corners and how they're progressing. Yeah i would agree with all of that fully has just kind of. I knew he was good before but this year. He has taken the biggest step. I keep saying on twitter. Biggest step of anybody grady. Jerry obviously is just going to always be our best defensive player at least until you know. He's much older earlier. They bring in some other talent or something but he. He's the cornerstone of the defense Foyers impressing dion jones. Still good it did. Terrell i mean he's locking down receivers The problem is they start switching around coverage and stuff like that in like today for example When terrell was on judy. Judy wasn't doing like anything. But then the second judy was on. Sheffield who you know. I always had high hopes for sheffield in then. He had an injury on top of that. But if you're if you're somebody who falls key f f he's literally like one of the worst corners right now. Pf in the entire league It's rough to see. But i mean you're also seeing you in the games. Unfortunately like he's not passing the test. Either denard it was good to see denard back because you know. Obviously he's been out dealing with injury. Look good against the bears But yeah he was out there. I remember making a key deflection But yeah oliver's impressed you know early on. He he was. It was kinda rough. 'cause i i mean a lot has been mentioned like decay metcalf burning thing but decay. Metcalf is incredibly fast. And we've kind of seen that Recent weeks But yeah overall i mean. I don't have anything wrong with this defense. i do. i do notice you know. I think it's kind of the elephant in the room but under moore's the defense which is weird to say because he's the defensive coordinator before but since deigned coins been gone. The defense has played like not even They've been playing slightly better like they've been playing lights out better overall. Obviously you can look at the team record and stuff like that but the point differential is plus twenty four with remorse has had coached negative. Thirty nine with tank wins. the head. coach opponents points per game was thirty. Two point two under dan quinn. Twenty only twenty. One point zero under the morris. I mean like the proof is in the pudding here like the team is doing much better especially on defense. It is worth noting that you know. I guess you could say this at the time. The seahawks cowboys. I mean. Those are amazing. Offenses If you wanna say the broncos don't have a great offense. I wouldn't disagree with you. But it's definitely something to monitor specially since they technically should be four four now under remorse take away that lyons with the girly falling into the end zone on accident therefore note since they make that change so right at a fantastic point. Because the falcons the three and six again no one is going to predict. Three and six teams gonna make the playoffs. They're just highly doubt they're going to run the tail at this point though. It is weird because Just not to jump in but you know we do have that extra playoff spot on top of that. The nfl because you're stuff has talked about expanding to sixteen teams so that would not only have seven but now of a sudden you go from having six in a normal season two eight playoff teams per conference so who really knows you know if they if they went out. I mean yeah could in it. Even if they lose one or two more they could still be in the conversation with as bad as many teams in the nfc have been this year. I mean just look at the nfc east and it's a bit of a disaster over there. So yeah th this. Could i mean come on. Let's let let you know once you going out in place in some debts here but please do please do not The falcons are not a playoff team at this point. Let's not pretend that they are but they are. It's your point of the defense has been playing better. These late games sort of minor meltdowns are concerning only from the standpoint that they're not protecting leads the way they need to However as you mentioned there are three one since ramos taken over could have been four. No not for the the girlie tripping into the end zone incident. So i feel like this falcons defense is beginning to play the way we thought they could coming into the season which is to say not necessarily a great defense. You know let's not let's not mistake this But a defense. That is a good enough to keep teams relatively check. You know maybe a mediocre like in eighteen to twenty five range but if you paired them with a really good offense that this would have been been a playoff team. And i feel like that's what we're seeing minus the the offense cutter in his inconsistencies as a playcaller And as you mentioned the again big game from him he is. He's turned in an incredible third year really encouraged about what that means for him. Over the long term with the falcons. I feel like he's a player that the next coaching staff is gonna come in and they're going to say we. We need to keep the sky around for long term And we're seeing signs. That maybe this falcons team under a new coach under a new general manager can be competitive again. Very quickly And i think for me. That's one of the takeaways from these. Recent games is that Even though it's still very unlikely. The falcons make the playoffs. And were certainly not going to predict that. I feel like this is now becoming a team. That is showing that they've got pieces to build around. It's not a complete blow up the roster situation and to me that's encouraging means that twenty twenty one and we don't necessarily have to write it off as a quote unquote rebuilding year. It could very well be that the falcons can be competitive again very quickly. So Any final thoughts on this game before we talk about. What's coming up next. No not really. I think we covered it pretty well. It was just wanted them games. Where you're enjoying it but also they make you a little nervous but you're happy they want. That would be my quick summers ation. Yeah it's it is very much what you expect from a twenty twenty atlanta falcons team as for what's coming up avenue and i get a break next sunday as the falcons will be on their bye week a week ten. They do come back the next week. They will be on the road taking on the new orleans saints who will be featuring a hundred and eighteen year old breweries. Yes i said breweries. You're welcome rachel and drew brees. Yes the quarterback of the saints and we'll see the thing is when it comes to the saints no idea what that game is going to be because you cannot go by the records you cannot go by how they match up on paper when it comes to falcon saints games. Throw everything out. The window is going to be completely unpredictable. A slugfest no matter what. So we've got that coming up. And then after that the falcons will come home to host the raiders and then they go into the final stretch with some tough tough games though yet the host the saints on the road against the chargers at home for the buccaneers on the road against the chiefs last game of the year on the road against tampa bay are tampa bay as they call it now All right so evan. As we wrap this podcast listeners. What you've got going on in where they can find you. Yes so this week was salute to service week In this was the salute to service. Game against the broncos for the falcons so they played for two hundred and eighty families that have fallen hero. it's a tremendous 'cause in i was fortunate to interview a lady who is involved in it in also a family the dean family who had a fallen hero. Who i mean the way the falcons you talk bad about the falcons on the front of how they handle football games and stuff like that but when it comes to the military the falcons committed. Yep you i mean you look at the awards. I mean the salute to service award from twenty sixteen to twenty eighteen was I don't know if it's in the correct order. But it was dan quinn on robertson. Ben garland In that's out of the whole league. Three straight years for the falcons By it's just a wonderful thing in i i was able to interviewer in I'm not sure exactly what day that article will be posted but You know if you thought ben gargling matt bryant Kiana neal if you thought these guys were good people before way to read this because they really really took it to the next level like they go beyond what they're expected to do Just a bunch of great guys so oh and you can find me on twitter at edinburgh field. I love it and that is evan. Thank you as you mentioned phenomenal stuff. With what the falcons do in our community. And what they do for our military. As a falcons fan for many years. I have to say it is one of the things that i still remain. Extremely extremely proud of for this franchise and for the for the men involved in this franchise so kudos to them for what they've done supporting our men and women in the military.

Nicole, Yokich Yokich his role as the guy as the number one guy in for for the nuggets I mean all this all this praise and I am just going to be cautious here. Because while those performances he I mean he is an epic company Jamal is and I I should know this more than most I. believe the guy has the ability to do this maybe fifty on a nightly basis. But I, I think he has the ability to be a thirty point guy all the time. But. We have yet to see real consistency. We have yet to see you know those numbers those averages go into the high twenties going into the thirties. In the twenty nine, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, twenty season, he was averaging eighteen point five points per game while that's good. That's above average. It's not superstar numbers so we got to see it more. And again he's very young. He's a young dude man he was drafted in two thousand and sixteen. So he has a huge career in front of him, but in order for him to take that next step. Got To do it again, you got to do it game seven I don't expect fifty. But because they're gonNA be keying in on you but can you find a way to put up? Mid Twenties that won't be disappointment. You can't come out with twelve. You can't go fourteen and I think that's where I'm pumping the brakes today because you see national media's flip and out about the guy, and again I know the speech after the game was also a big a big a portion of his celebrity today. And I and I get that but his skillset. has to carry him on a consistent basis if he wants to be known as a true superstar and it might not even be this year now like if he goes through and they win game seven and they bust through somehow against the clippers. And they win that series. Then, in journals like one of main reasons for it, and then somehow he battles it out even if they lose in the western conference finals but he's like the guy for the nuggets to battle this thing out. Then? Yes he's. Price as arrived and then our next question's GonNa be. Is Jamal. Do it again can you do it again? pillow fight and says. Has Gone Yeah I mean it doesn't unless. The only thing is I can see. Because like. Right. Now, the starting lineup full force should be Jamal Murray. Gary. Harris. It to. Do you go will Barton at three? Do you go Michael Porter Jr. at three when the season starts now again, they're starting this lineup differently for these playoffs. But I think the dream starting lineup is Murray Harris Porter Jr. Jeremy Grant and Nicola Yokich with plumlee coming off the bench. With will. Barton. Coming off the bench Tori Craig coming off the bench and then ultimately they're going to try to work bowl bowling so. The question becomes this. Who how soon will you be ready to use mobile in meaningful games in the regular season next year? Could you convince millsaps to sign a one year deal cheap one year deal and be a backup. because. jokers are True Center Bulls Your Backup Center essentially but plumlee can play center. You can go small. So I, don't worry that much about the center position because Plumlee is essentially a center listed as a power forward but that's that's going to be the question is. Are you comfortable plumlee being you're only big man off the bench. Outside of Bulbul, essentially And if not, then you you see if you can keep millsap onboard 'cause they're starting this lineup for defensive a for defensive-minded lineup here. You know they want more to move the ball a little bit more with Murray. They want Jeremy Grant millsap out there, but they also want plumbly coming in that second unit to lead the defense. And if porter can play defense like you didn't know again, he wasn't amazing but he wasn't lost he's starting to get it. They're starting to flow and then Gary Harris should only get better if they can survive game seven and move on and you're gonNA see a lot more Paris. So, I can't imagine millsaps here. Especially, if the nuggets want to. Put the Bulbul. Expansion into overdrive if they want to put the bowl bowl. Progression into overdrive. Hey in the in the eighth seeding games it was Bulbul and MPG stealing the show. And we really haven't seen bowling any meaningful minutes in the playoffs who've certainly importer wouldn't meaningful minutes and he's been up and down. Big Game seven though coming up for the nuggets I events text line three, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. Pillow dances plus you'd have some salary flexibility with mill gone I. Think They Package Barton? Probably Have Barton. Through what a couple of years I believe But that's GONNA be. That's to be an interesting question to. Is What do you do with Barton? The nuggets are fighting through this I. Think one of our texters earlier said, they're in the same position that they were last year they're in a game seven in the first round. Yeah and they've done it primarily without well, they've done it for sure without Barton Star people forget about this little nugget is the nuggets have done this without? Without. To starters. Without. Two of their starters playing. That's a big thing. If if any other team does this I mean, Barton and Harris were big pieces to what the nuggets have accomplished the last two to three years. And now, they just haven't played and we saw Harris for the first time last night. Yeah you have. So Will Barton you have him? Through the twenty twenty, one season you have them through the twenty, one, twenty, two season. I think he has a player option after twenty, one, twenty two. So. That's two more seasons with Wilbert. Can't imagine. He stays on this team. MILLSAPS will be a free agent they may just let them walk. Or they're probably let him walks time plumbly contract comes up. At the end of the season, they will resign him. They definitely will malone loves plumbing. How many times has he said throughout the season If he could have about four or five of those is they'd be doing okay. Got To find one that can shoot though. But on a team that struggled defensively, you cannot afford to move on. From a defensive minded guy so you'll you'll site, you'll re-sign him Jeremy. Grant has a player option hill opt out and then opt back in for more money. Tori. Craig's a free agent. He's twenty nine and again a wild card you have them for defense, but he hasn't been amazing. Last night was much better for him. He had eight points he was plus a of floor he is up and down player. Do they resign him for sheep maybe? Teams GonNa Look Different for sure My little bit as far as of their guys I do hate see kind of millsap fade and I hope that he can have some still have some big moments for the nuggets in these playoffs. Because I mean it was two years ago we were. Talking about MILLSAP being the biggest free agent pickup the nuggets I've ever had. I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six Michael Malone. Obviously very happy about what he's seeing from Jim from Joel Murray. Here he is talking about is superstar after after game six but demolished nonetheless games is. UNBELIEVABLE NOT I've been blessed to have been around some great players. In this Lebron, a CPA steph Curry Klay Thompson but I've never seen a guy, go fifty, forty, two, and fifty. and those games being elimination game. So talking by young man during the team on his back, that will to win to ever necessary to find a way to get the win is tremendous and endure what after this we haven't played since Tuesday and to do everything that's taken place in the last three or four days. All emotions, raw emotion, Mesa devilish, more impressive. So I running out of things superlatives, Demaim, Murray. I, just want to say, I'm proud of what he did tonight was. Amazing and obviously we're not done yet. We have one more game. We want to be the twelfth team. Terrific come from a three one deficit one series. Now you run out of things to say when you see a performance like this in the playoffs and listen, this is how it started for curry. This. Is How it started for for Klay Thompson was in those playoffs against the nuggets. In there. The lesser seed they came out on top. Now. They didn't win the championship the very next year even the your after that. But you saw the progression and curry and Klay they became the splash brothers right and we started talking about the more saying that the these guys have arrived. So. Murray was spotty last year in the playoffs. He had some good moments. He had some rough moments. He had some average moments. He had some great moments not consistent he has been. A lot more consistent in this series. Now, he's had two bad game well to average games fourteen and twelve I think were two of his performances but that that's where we got to remember it's not. It's not just about these last two to three games. We have to look at the whole body of work because today emotions are high. But the nuggets get knocked out tomorrow if they do. Then we're going to look back and say. Yeah, I mean, this team didn't bring it for like. Obviously three to four games. and. Murray was a part of that. Now he had one performance where they lost as we saw and. That was tough. But this is where I'm desperate to see I'm desperate to see some some consistency I don't need fifty though. I don't need forty I don't I don't even need thirty. I can't have fourteen. Can't happen a guy. I got to see you in the in the mid twenties at least even when they're putting the because you know great players get. Great players deserve great game plans around them and Utah's GonNa. Try to figure that out. They're going to put a game plan around Murray that's where you have to have Murray and joker. They have to be able to play off one another. And the rest of this unit the guys like plumbly and Jeremy Grant they have to play their role grant was hitting shots man he was hitting shots and playing defense hitting outside shots. Plumbly was doing his thing plumlee a pretty Chris Passer too I think that's an underrated thing with him. It's not a great offensive player, but he can pass pretty good. A good nose for basketball defensively was fun to watch him I. I have a good time watching him play defense. That was that. A Fun game for Denver, they never lost touch and you know what other than another key thing wasn't that third period. Only allow twenty three points. From, from Utah, the third period has been tough for them. and. They find a way to to clamp down in the second half. Just huge nuggets. Come out of this thing and get the big win power to play sports poll question of the day. As mammary taking over as the top dog for the Denver Nuggets already believe it's still joker. Now we have sixty six percent of the whole against saying, yes thirty three percent of the joke of. The whole thing no. Still the joker seventeen minutes after the hour. When we come back, let's take a look at the Broncos that three man roster we're getting close to the season Colefax the NFL season starts next Thursday next Thursday.

Dan Patrick the whole show and Colin cowherd are on northern. Colorado's voice thirteen. Ten KFI K.. Hey, it's Andrew Bogusch. From CBS sports radio. You're listening to the whole shell on thirteen ten KFTA. Auto Taylor. Gets ready for the road trip you miss this summer. You didn't go anywhere. Everybody's staying inside scared. Do Anything I get it. I understand that it's nuts out there. But now maybe thinking all right, we want to try to take that road trip. Take a little break you got. WAY COMING UP? On, Monday. Sioux falls almost here Colfax. I told you. Normally, I say the season starts when. preseason starts or the fall season starts in preseason. Kovacs because I'm rushing summer I agree definitely. But now I've allowed you to have a full sober because didn't have preseason this year Q. Fault the start until next Thursday. Fantastic. Yes I. Mean I gave you more summer man nothing against great I think that but nothing against great sponsors on the rock liquor but you did almost ruined my summer earlier when you start talking about com copy. You buy you buy a Pumpkin beer maybe I will and then save it. Were you buy? Will you drink it in September? Tomorrow you'll. Still August today, you won't do it but. You would do yes. Well. Maybe you're putting off the road trip. This summer road trip now becomes the fall road trip auto Taylor. Stop in you don't WanNa take that long road trip, and if you haven't been to auto Taylor wherever in a while, you need to get get things checked out. That's our friends over to Taylor in Greeley. And they'll make sure they get you ready to go for that road trip. Just double check things get the oil changed. Nisar tweaks you might need that's auto. Taylor hearing really I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. broncos training camp I mean there were some concerns over the weekend Brad Kinda was was banged up. And you're seeing a few a few various things happening as far as injuries go but nothing too major. At this stage. Now You, saw this. Leonard was released and. I I can't believe how many people on. Twitter. Are saying the Broncos should give them a call. What? You are so packed in the running back room you want to Piss. Philip. Lindsey off again. That that's assume. New Segment. We Fax stupid ideas of the day. That's one of them. Let's give letter for data call and Piss off Philip Lindsey again let's really ruin our chance of. Of keeping the guy. What about that fifty three man roster though listen. To bust through everything all these positions here. I'm just GonNa go through the things I think interesting. So I've got pulled up here from the Denver Post Rhino. Halloran Halloran has sets up the entire roster interesting to me. To quarterbacks. Shanahan used to do that. A lot of teams do that carrying to drew lock Jeff Driscoll likely now this isn't for sure this is just I don't see any reason why would change that? Running backs, you'RE GONNA go they're going to go four with Andrew back who can play full-back or tight end more than likely go there with four. So Gordon Lindsay Royce Freeman, who was really the guy that gets screwed in this whole move. And Andrew Back. Tight ends well, you got your obvious no fan. Nick Van Alberto Alberto, Cueva on and Jake. But. I do all right at that. I've heard it's pronounced differently but I like the way I do it. He's definitely comfortable with people calling him Alvarado though he's like, no, it's fine. Don't want to don't want to you know try to mess with people correct them there but albums been good. He's kind of been a little bit of the Talka- camp even though it's no fat. Going in his second year developing that connection with drew lock in the Nick Van was was brought into free agency. Again? Colfax. The begs the question. What is this offense going to be? You got you got four. Jake. But if he can stay healthy, we all think he's going to be pretty good. Is it going to be troy? Golly though still hanging out there. Are you gonNA go tie heavy. Tight end sets. You get nine, hundred wide receivers. You're gonNA carry six wide receivers more than likely plus you're running backs got Melvin Gordon Lindsay you're definitely gonNA use the heck out of them. I'm very curious to see what this offense looks like. With, not a lot of media presence we know nothing. We hear people beautiful catch by Gerry. Judy I'll beautiful run I mean. That's what we're going to see. I don't. I'll be gone heavy sets a lot. Go with a lot of to tailback sets with Gordon Lindsay. I'm very man. At the receiver spots sudden Jerry Judy Caja Handler. To Sean Hamilton. Tim Patrick who I like Dante Spencer they might go heavy there. They do have a few other guys and other rookie Terry. Cleveland he's had a Good Camp Up Ryan Hal o'halloran doesn't know if he's going to make the team. Lead Caja handlers hamstring issue so I mean that's that could put him on the I. R, so you make room here. Be A bummer wouldn't it your second round pick Again injuries happening I'm not faulting John elway. All. You picked the guy that got her where to go John No I'm not I'm not going to go there but. That you guys know. I didn't like this pick anyway. I mean it's nothing against Caja Hamblur. But why why did you draft to wide receivers in a row? Your already have a stud wide receiver using another compliment instead go to in a row instead of filling up your line or your or your defense ridiculous I know said at five thousand times. Three thousand before the season starts. Offensive Lineman. Garrett Bowles on that left tackle Dalton reisner obviously, Graham glass cow left Saturday's practice though he was one that I think people were kind of worried about. He had the ankle issue. And Austin. WHO's? Who can play centre? He's battling with Lloyd cushenberry Sloman can also play guard though so he's probably GonNa make the team because you're concerned about injuries. So. Garibaldi. Riser Graham Glasgow Wilkinson who's pushing for that right tackle spot Lloyd cushenberry center the Rook Schlomo. It'll be there detain moody the Guard they brought him in later. Demar. Dotson Right, tackle Patrick Morris Guard center. I imagine they're GONNA GO HEAVY DENVER Post and they're going to carry nine offensive lineman. Probably, because of all the injuries I would imagine. Defensive Lineman. Carry six. Yeah. They're gonNA again going to carry nine offensive lineman possibly six defensive Lineman Shelby Harris Drill Casey Mike pursell dream on Jones who? I. Really. WanNa. See if he can have a big year this year television, a game and demarcus Walker. Outside linebackers, Bradley von Miller. No surprise there. Jeremiah taught you and me read read was the guy. I was pretty high on last year. Inside linebackers will be a big question mark. So weakness. Weakness they're Kinda like One of the corner positions I've said, Todd Davis who love if he can stay healthy. Alexander Johnson stormed onto the scene with his energy last year. Love the dinosaur thing. Keep that going Josie jewels there. He hasn't really taken the next step the first five weeks of his rookie year everybody loved him. Von Miller talking about him but he has sense to do much Joe Jones and Mark Barron Ryan. Says Joe He's picking jobs, oversee issues, Josh Watson. That was probably the hardest decision on this roster. He just thinks Jones. Having specialty experience is going to give them the edge. quarterbacks. And this is not a depth chart, but you have AJ boy bryce Callahan that the top two corners. Michael J., media. Has has had a pretty good camp, but then he kind of banged up his squad. So I don't know how serious that is. DEVANTE cosby Devante. Harris. And Duke Dawson. You probably. To carrying six. Again, it's not a strong group right now, but it is an unproven group. Aj boy is more proven. But second of his career wasn't exactly sensational playing number two corner to Jalen Ramsey back in Jacksonville. SAFETIES. Justin Simmons. Jackson Marshall Elijah Elijah holder. That a lot of big surprises necessarily. Titan seems to be a big. You know what? What are they gonNA do destroy guy he's been. Would say a big part of this roster, but he's been a part of this roster. Probably, go to the practice squad or something along those lines first advantage text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, hundred, six, Jerry Judy. Good camp. I I like, wouldn't it 'cause might said last week from the athletic those broncos insider now doing a little bit of both nuggets broncos. He's a good camp, but he's a talented receiver. We got we still have to see it in live action. And that's going to be the big thing is Ken. Ken Judy expectations because his expectations are high right now. Could eventually I mean we're hearing drew lock and Judy just like connect man they're like. Very. Close already. Could you see a situation where it's Jerry Judy getting the bulk of the looks I mean with that speed you can do a lot coralline sutton though. I still think is has potential to be a top wide receiver, so they're going to be stacked there. And I've never hated that move Jerry Judy fell to the broncos at that spot. So I never hated it. It's what they did after. The kind of A. That second round second round was to me was the big loss first advantage text line. Three. One, nine, nine, six what do you think you think that fifty three man roster's going to look like what position are you keying in on that? You're concerned with or you have question marks about thirty four minutes after the Hour Colefax let's get the latest on the local sports flash here mornings with GAIL weekdays six to nine in northern.

So it's perfect ready to go for your man Cave. We will duke it out on Tuesdays Edition of the whole show for another top text Tuesday. The NFL News as far as big news surrounding the NFL. You saw Jaguars decided to cut ties with Leonard Fournette. Cam, Newton had an excused absence today from from camp, I am curious to see how. He's getting the majority of snap so he's going to be a starter. For I mean unless something crazy happens but for the Patriots. So is that not so weird to say that. Cam Newton starting quarterback for the New England Patriots. Tom Brady starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay buccaneers in that and then I'm hearing a camp. Through NFL DOT COM that. Tom Brady in his receivers kinda not connecting right now trying to get the nonverbal cues down. Expected new spot. You know you're not around the same every year you get new receivers or whatever but you still have a few guys that you're in tune with. COMEDIANS GROUP So that was I'm not I'm not too concerned about that. Look at the forty niners thing. The forty niners thanks the four net Leonard Fournette. Things interesting to me. We're talking about running back. We're talking about money with running backs. And here you see another guy. That was. Picked early in the first round pick. And yet, he just kind of fizzled there. Hit, three years with Jacksonville. In three years he rushed for twenty, six, hundred yards seventeen touchdowns. jags could have picked up his fifth year option during the off season. But. They. But they didn't they thought it was easy. Didn't get much for it. For that. Thanks. Thank the Jaguars and their fans in a tweet riding. We have been through some ups and downs, but you all have had my back through it all. My deepest respect and appreciation. Can you believe I mean that's again. This is why teams hesitate. To go big on running backs early. He's do four point seventeen million dollars in salary. This season if a team claims him. Pretty decent running back still though I mean. Highest percentage of teams, scrimmage yards of the of the team. So Talking about his importance to the team he accounted for nearly thirty one percent of teams yards. Last season hit a career high of eleven hundred rushing yards seventy, six or seven. So I mean he had a good year. mean eleven hundred yards in this day and age. That's a pretty good year. It's a pretty good run. But. Maybe some health issues I really don't know it's a it's a crazy thing. He's he's been the fifth most productive running back in the NFL really behind Elliott behind, girly Derrick Henry Joe Mixing. But had thirteen carries of. According to ESPN stats and Info number four nine had only thirteen carries of twenty or more yards and twenty one players had more. So again, he's getting the ball the whole time they have nothing else on offense. So they're going to him all the time. It's much different as far as production goes so. I mean that that was a kind of a shock to me. He was first draft pick made by Tom Coughlin back in back three years ago. When? He was the former executive vp of football operations. His goal was to build around him. And maybe they just didn't quite do it. But then I'm hearing things about Hey Go after him Denver should give this guy call man. They are so overloaded right now and what would that do to Philip Linzie? No way not. Even realistic. serously look it up. It's on twitter. There are people tweeting this. It's not that crazy to me. I text line three, one, nine, nine, six. Look at these running backs drafted in two thousand seventeen. This is the reason we bring this up is because that was a very that was a running back heavy. Gear Leonard Fournette was picked fourth. Overall Three years later, he's a free agent. Christian. McCaffrey was picked eighth three years later, arguably the best player in the NFL. Dalvin Cook he was picked in the second one of the one of the top running backs Joe Mixing top running back Alvin Kamara atop running mate he was picked third round sixty seventh Kareem. Hunt was there man there was a lot of good running backs that year? James Connor. Marlin. Mac Aaron Jones Chris Carson Austin was undrafted. That's how good actors now becoming kind of a star the kid out of eaten. Wow. That's how good of a running back class it was Austin was undrafted. No I don't think the Broncos should even remotely. Consider that. I finished text line three, one, nine, nine, six getting ready for the NFL man. It's it's right around the corner. So, we've had some people asking if we've stopped doing that there's an special. We've had some people wondering about Colefax and I wondered if it's gone stale, do I load this thing back up for NFL Thursdays go undefeated like I was supposed to last year but the covert it was screwed me up. Are you asking you're asking the audience it screwed me up until nineteen I. Think it was two lane knew was coming. So I think it's a little off now I don't think he's off my God in that time. I sensed it though I could sense there was some kind of sickness coming. And I was like is messing with my picks I. I. Don't know what happened but I don't think that's the best excuse undefeated this year. Okay. We go Thursday I special, but we go back to football. It's all football football. Every Thursday night I will pick them correctly you go against me if you want to hold against. The, Time This is the time. And what are we got next week? It's it's Houston. And Kansas. City isn't it? That's going to be a good one. Can you believe that's next. Thursday that is next Thursday here on Kfi. So Houston at Kansas City that'll be my first pick. Excited for that. You guys can pick against me and see how you do. I'm just looking at my Thursday schedules. And just the first COUPLA because I personally, like Thursday night football I do I I'm not saying that it's sometimes unhealthy or or that it's maybe not the best football in the world but the fact is there's football on my TV Thursday night when usually there's nothing else. So I for one like Thursday night football there I said I admitted it oh, the week after that's going to be a DOOZY CINCINNATI CLEVELAND Although. There's reasons to be excited about that now. Because of the quarterbacks for both of those teams Miami at Jacksonville Week Three. Gardner you. Excited about that I guess. Those are just my three I'm looking at. Yes. We'll reload it for football and we'll see how I do. I always said this you know hey, if I finish under certain record, I'm done with it. I always find a way. I'm like that team desperation mode on elimination night I find a way Colfax back myself out of a corner. So predictions for me How many games are there this year usually they don't do them through. I think they stop after. So I think there's fourteen. So let me just round was fourteen. Any predictions? What do you think my records are going to be? Seventy. Five hundred Mr five hundred. Are you going to bring new material you got new football material. New Thursday night. Special material. Sure. Yeah I'm looking forward to something something football related. We're GONNA have fun man we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA blow this thing off and it's going to be great. It's going to be amazing I'M GONNA START SEASON WANNA know. Obviously. If. You. Don't win week number one definitely between Houston and Casey. So I pick yet. But next next Thursday we'll get to. We get. Forty seven minutes after the hour our power to play sports poll question of the day Jamal Murray taken over as the nuggets best player most hooligans agree obviously yes. Forty seven minutes after we'll take a quick break. WHAT'S ON TV? Tonight? This is the whole show powered by energy. Party northern Colorado's four. Thirteen ten KFI K.

I don't know if they can do it again though that's going to be tough but we'll see. One More playoff games. All we can ask for just keep pushing for one more game. The Colorado APPS can get going the rockies. Can they? Can they get this game tonight and try to you know get those to San Francisco. Games before they take on the dodgers. I'd love to see his team went through. Think it's really important to win three in a row but the padres loading up. Hey if there's ever time to catch a team. Sometimes, it's right after the trade deadline. Trying to adjust without guys you know maybe new guys aren't there yet. So like the rockies in this game tonight. So I think it'd be a good night for Colorado overall. Fifty two minutes after the hour I mean that's that's going to be a big move for the rockies. It's Pilar was actually pretty good investment. For for the red SOx overall signed a one year deal four, point two, five, million dollar contract in the offseason I mean he's had some decent numbers. But there there there are surpri Iraqis are supply of surprising playoff candidate right now at seventeen and seventeen. And maybe they can get in and this might be a nice move another proven outfielder to join the group. With top toppy David Charlie Blackmon. So. I pay. This is one of those moves you gotta like to see if you're if you're a rockies fan. I'm excited to see I've skied. See The rockies moving in I mean trying to make something of the season seven, seventeen, seven, the wheels came off two weeks ago they recovered nicely and I think we go back to that Arizona series and we're going to remember this team as finding a way to. Stay above water. And just get back in the losing games like yesterday. Yeah. That's GONNA leave a bad taste in your mouth but you gotta keep bouncing, back. You know you're in your role that usually claims your season. It's a short season so it could be fast here but she got one month left. Today's your last day of August your last game in August and then it's one more month of regular season baseball. We're GONNA be talking about the rockies into October. Guess we'll find out. A good show today it was fun to talk about the X.'s and O.'s to get back to that I know last week was certainly. Certainly different difficult week for a lot of us. But just kind of getting through all this I mean it's been. It's been difficult year. It's been a crazy time. But trying to get back to watch these games and getting into it. I mean the last night was last night was enjoyable except for the rockies. The I, suppose but it was cool seeing the nuggets continue to fight back. Surviving Elimination Games I mean, that's huge I. I don't know that a lot of nuggets fans thought that they'd be here at game seven. You. Know what? That terror terrible performance was a game four. So we'll see if they can find a way to do this thing man forcier force their way into the second round, and now it's a new refresh rounding. Do it. WE'RE GONNA game seven last year, and it was scary. They found a way to get through it and first round go up against Portland but. Time will tell all right that's going to do it for US Monday. We got Noko now coming up at four o'clock right after the herd with Colin Cowherd. Rockies baseball on I. Think I think Marquez picks one up tonight five minutes till top of the hour. So whole show powered by PC energy good night northern Colorado.

March 30 Hour 2 More NFL Power Rankings | Derek Wolfe No Longer Bronco

"Five minutes after the second final hour today on this. Monday our power to play sports. Poll question is up at the whole show dot com eliminate. Which think do you think he? Nhl In the NBA should just plan on skipping the remainder of the season. And yes I am lumping all of that in the playoffs in the because tell you what the the playoffs are GonNa be. Ah That's going to be a lot of planning. I mean a lot of planning to figure this out going into a short short notice changing up the dates figured everything you know with with what what what you're working with in terms of how these players are the coaches and everything. What what is the practice schedule? Look like the Games. I all four continuing. I'm all for it. But the further we go out do you. Is there a part of you that just says hey shut it down? Because it's it's going to not feel right. It's not going to have the same vibe to it and it's way different or or you know. Are you cool with just starting up the playoffs? I would like to see personally a week or two of regular season because all we hear about in the In the in the in the off season and the first three weeks of the NBA is all you. GotTa you gotTa get the kinks worked out. You know they're still. There's still trying to figure it all out. I mean I remember the Miami Heat joined forces. It was Lebron and Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. It was supposed to be the match made in heaven or their first month. They weren't that they weren't figuring out there playing like five hundred basketball and everybody said just give it some time. Let Them Gel. And they'll look what happened they. They didn't win it that year but they did go when they wanted the two years so I do think that saying oh well. They're going to have practice time. That'll be no well. Then you're you're you're discounting everything. We're hearing a lot of that lately. You know this all we could push it we. We don't need. We don't need extra games in the playoffs. So now we're like actually calling out discounting the fact that we maybe. We don't need eighty two games because every time you argue it yes. The owners are going to fight for the money but most people know eighty two games it does take one hundred sixty two games it does take to figure it out so I e which is it all we can do it without all those games we can or no. We need all those games because now push comes to shove and you might not have an option. A lot of you will just shrug. Your shoulders are now. They don't need they'll have practice. They'll have practice. They'll be able to work right into the regular season and I I don't know if it's that easy first advantage text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. Yeah Colefax I was getting. I was getting some grief about the mellow thing. Some people hurt and listen. I didn't say mellow was the greatest nugget of all time. I think he's top three now. I will put a note there. That says I'm thirty three years old. It's funny though because like you get an. I'm not like trying to knock my dad's Alex English Guy. But my dad also will sit there and go you know the mellow years. Were pretty good too. So we're talking about it over the weekend. The law and my brother was a huge Alex. English Fan David Thompson Fan. Daynuss loved all the historic nuggets. But there is. There's this group of there's the younger group that's like. Oh it's all mellow then. Those other guys that was in the seventies seventies whenever but then there's the older group that's lagaras trump carbonneau ad but he didn't play defense some reason he's an old pirate. I don't know why but there are back in May Day. I saw David Thompson and Carmelo Alex English. I can't even remember the name anymore. They were so mellow guy. Here's a him and his basketball making all these shots that he makes. Oh that's terrible. Well he was a top score in the NBA. Here there's another guy Posted well a lot of us. Were around a lot more than a decade to watch the nuggets. I mean watch a little bit more than a decade cool whatever Carmelo. Anthony was drafted in two thousand and three. So we're talking almost twenty years ago Colfax. Wb If you do the math that's about two decades there so if you're just if you're just talking about Carmelo Anthony you're GONNA say well. He's been around for almost two decades so in. That's the that's beyond. I was a nineties nuggets fan even though they were terrible but I watched a lot of different kinds. The Deacon May Matombo years. Yeah I was pretty young. Pretty Young didn't quite understand everything that went into basketball. I just know that we liked it and it was fun. It was cool. My Dad knew way more about it than I did. I didn't know and then as I started to get into the ten eleven twelve thirteen. Yeah I'm starting to really get into it starting to learn more about these teams starting to pretend to do radio talk shows while driving the tractor on my family farm. That's how I got into radio practicing. They're talking to myself and all my family thought I was not. They may not be wrong for San text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. Yeah mellows definitely top three. No question top five. If you want to say David Thomson Analysis. Alex English our number one thing. The debate starts there. The debate doesn't start there. I say Nicole. Yokich first off now is again. The nuggets don't have any championships. They don't have any Western Conference. Titles so you're working with to listen even if you wanted to erase the defense and the ARRA. The nuggets have been to to Western Conference finals. One in the Alex English David Thompson era. One in the mellow era. And you'RE NOT GONNA say that. Melo is top five well Brady. That's when Chauncey billups got there chauncey billips rounded out that team no question but Chauncey billips was also a nugget before that one stint before he went to Detroit and they were terrible. They were one of the worst teams in the League. So yeah we can say that. Chelsea went to Detroit and won a championship came to Denver. And I love Chauncey billips. He he kind of helped lead. Carmelo and listen Carmelo. Anthony had his issue. There's no doubt about it. He had his issues. I furious George. George Karl's book it's it's kind of a scattered read but it's there's some really good stuff that some good nuggets that you can get out of it right. Colfax okay but he did talk about. He did talk about the fact. That mellow was was a difficult player to coach. I'm not saying any of those. Things are untrue but there is an older demographic. Perhaps that's kind of like this is the new age of basketball and I don't like it so therefore he's not even in the top five. Know the facts are that Carmelo. Anthony was one of the greatest nuggets of all time. And if you don't think so then you are putting on your one thousand nine hundred ninety eight glasses and saying that the bat that basketball was great back then. It sucks now. That's not the case. There are players like James Harden that really ruin the perspective from some of these some of these NBA fans that loved the game back in the nineties. But I'm telling you man. Lebron James would have survived in. The seventies would have survived in the eighties and the nineties. Kobe Bryant would have survived in the seventies eighties and nineties. Michael Jordan would have would have survived. Now in his prime he'd be the there are players that we can again. We'll never know this until Colfax finally gets around to inventing that time machine but there are certain players that we can all look at it and say yes onto Toco honest onto the Combo. You mean to tell me that he wouldn't be a successful basketball player in the eighties and nineties. No you absolutely would. There are certain players that you look at and say they would have been very good anytime same. Same can be said football. There are guys that aren't that certainly. You can look at James Harden and say they call so many fouls now but but then to be fair to him did he not just more his game knowing he was going to get thousands. Doesn't that make him a pretty crafty basketball player? At that point there are certain players that would have just survived in either era this this day and age. I think players are more athletic back. Then yeah sure. You're probably seeing more guys. That are a little bit tougher. Guys that are are hitting a little. I remember Scott. Hastings said this once and it was cracked me up. It was watching a game and he mentioned well back in the day. If if a guy you know keeps pulling up and shoot threes like that and we're like what James Harden is doing to try to get you to Salom you just pop him and knock them down and I remember Marlow Goes. That would have been a foul. He's like yeah but sometimes they call it. I'm like wait a second. What are you saying? Wait a second. So you're telling me that the basket basketball in the seventies and eighties was better but they didn't call as many fouls so you could like knock down and they didn't call it. Well that's against the rules so did the NBA players get worse. The officials just get better so I always. Those arguments are always interesting because trust me. I'm right there with you. I get irritated when people say this guy's my favorite player when you never watched it just like him. I. I'm there with you but I'm not GonNa sit here and pretend that I can give you a realistic. Okay Alex English yes. I appreciate our history. But based on what I've seen based on what I know of Franchise Development Mellow saved an organization an organization. He saved it. Alex English joined a team that had been to the playoffs the year before and they struggled for the next two seasons and he had great numbers but that is a realistic thing to think about. And when you're talking about the greatest of all time you also have to look at well. What was the what was the team like when they got there before they got there and after they got there? I if you don't put them in your top five. Who is came Matombo? He played for the nuggets for four or five seasons then didn't win a championship. Didn't go to the west of his clay yes. He was one of the greatest defensive players for the nuggets. He was huge. He was great but he's not a top five. Dan Again didn't see him. Hell of a center probably top five right close but you have one right now. That's cracking that. That's Nicole Yokich. I do think he's the better I think he's better overall defensively. Maybe not quite there as much but he is big. You can body up a little bit better being a big guy but he has the skill set that not a lot of point guards half his passing ability and his scoring ability. Those two things together make him a very rare talent and I think one of texters pointed out last week that he's going to be around the League for quite some time because he doesn't jump much so maybe there's going to be as much wear and tear when it's all said and done we won't have to have the mellow Alex English debate anymore. Because it's going to be Nicole Yokich when we come back I want to get into the NFL power rankings. We already talked about the chiefs being number one. Where are the Denver Broncos and a tough weekend as the broncos said farewell to a staple football player and really a a great leader for the team and I was sad to see them go sixty minutes after the hour? We'll take a quick break. It's the whole show powered by. Pdc Energy your message out to our community with no cone now nine am to ten am weekdays on Kfi. This is mild heart sports editor at the Fort Collins Colorado in and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten K. FDA quarterback of the show. Sorry I always get heated with the mellow thing. People really hate the way he left. They really hate the way he left. And it's actually the opposite of the way Lebron left. I mean it was it was a solid. It was mellow speaking to the nuggets. Saying I'm going to be gone. You know at the end of this. I'm not gonNA stay as the Denver Nuggets so you guys I. The Knicks have a chance to go to the playoffs. Now and I want to join that campaign I would love to sew trade me get some assets now or we just we drift on through the season and go from there and see what happens. I mean come on. It's he hooked. He helped the ne now. It wasn't the best thing I mean. Obviously you want to say mellow should've just stayed in Denver. But who are we to decide that its contract was coming up? We see it happen all the time now. Sure it's it's it means a lot when you have a guy like todd. Helton that stays with your with your team through thick and thin but it's not always rewarded like Derek Wolfe from. We'll talk about that at the bottom of the hour Derek Wolfe. I thought was a it was a great part of what the Broncos Ravi Superbowl fifty one of the most talented linemen in the NFL. No he did have a pretty good season last year. So we'll talk about that more and kind of the bummer that is being done with Derek Wolfe but the Venom Toward Carmelo. Anthony's is kind of crazy doing to think eating country club there in a weird situation obviously right now with the social distancing and everything but if you go to their website or their facebook pages just search eaten country club. They're doing a lot of different tips on golf things that you can think about. Maybe things like putting and stuff you can do from your own home and maybe you're going out to a wide open park where you're not around a lot of people figuring out your golf swing. Whatever in country clubs putting out some tips there so check out their website eaten dot net thing about becoming a member. Because I tell you what when when we get out of this thing golf courses gonna be lighting it up and eat and country club will be one of the one of those golf courses leading the brigade in northern Colorado first advantage text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six Kansas City chiefs according to ESPN DOT com number one team in the NFL. Hard to disagree just want Super Bowl and kept most of their necessary pieces in place so very difficult to disagree number two the Baltimore Ravens in makes sense yet again. Making some moves a OH. They placed the franchise tag on. Matthew Judah on traded for defensive. End Callejas Campbell. Which is a big move. They resigned Jimmy Smith. Which was the big question at corner there now. What are they doing the draft? How do they keep supporting Lamar Jackson? Trying to completely alter an offense for past two years that that project continues a probably GonNa add an a wide receiver something but yeah the Ravens are right there number three the San Francisco Forty niners. I I have a hard time with that one. I might go with the New Orleans Saints. They did add Emmanuel Sanders. Which maybe he's not in his prime. He did light up the saints last year but he had a good because he's you know he was really really good. But he didn't have a solid consistent numbers last year. But I think you had a guy with drably breeze and obviously Michael Thomas. Getting most of that attention. It's it's GonNa be one of those situations where you're adding more weapons to drew brees. They're sitting at number four. Green Bay's at five Seattle sitting at six today via wants at least twenty million dollars. That's a little. That's a little steep there but I am Seattle's as long as Russell. Wilson's they're they're going to be in the top ten Tennessee sitting at seven again. These are the way too early rankings before the actual draft that all just a mirage with Tennessee. I mean they. They resigned Ryan Tannehill to a lot to a big chunk. And I thought man that was kind of your weakest link. But they're gonNA loaded up again and Derrick Henry. We'll see what he he's. They put the tag on Henry. They did sign vic Beasley junior but they lost one of their injury. Okay so that's obviously better for the broncos in that situation but I I don't know Titans I. I didn't believe in them throughout the entire playoffs last year. And here I go again. I'm still not believing them and look how far they get the Viking sitting at eight bills nine Tampa Bay with the addition of Tom Brady top. Ted cracked the top ten code and see. That's that's a hell of a story. I'm GonNa tell you more about Tom. Brady and how this whole thing worked out. He almost pitched to them. Kind of turn it around Dallas Cowboys Sitting at Eleven Eagles at twelve. The Patriots are at thirteen without Tommy. Beat it's interesting. Here's what's written about the Patriots. Everything that has unfolded with the Patriots. Consistent with Allie of generally operated under coach Bill Belichick. This is going to be so much fun next year that storyline alone belichick or Brady. Now we get to see you take seven to nine bucks team that we could all agree if James Winston is better. This team is a playoff team. So now we're going to put to the test. If Tom Brady's there. This team should be a playoff team the Patriots. We've said it forever. Is Bill Check with the greater binders? Tom Brady will belichick. Finally gets to prove it. But they're sitting at Thirteen. The Colts at fourteen with Fella rivers. And it's GONNA be weird. I thought maybe they'd stay the course. Which a copy percent but now they wanna go with Philip rivers. Pittsburgh steelers sitting fifteen big Ben hoping to come back the Texans at sixteen the ram sitting at seventeen with a goofy looking logo the Falcons at eighteen the bears at nineteen. Nick foles there. We might have a quarterback controversy. There the Las Vegas Raiders. Man Is GonNa be a lot of things to catch up on sitting at twenty the cardinals at twenty one. The browns at twenty two and finally at twenty three. Your Denver broncos pretty rough there what is said by Jeff Wald broncos beat writer on ESPN DOT COM. The broncos may traits to bolster their defense acquired defensive tackle Jerome Casey and cornerback. Aj boy big moves and use the franchise tag on Safety Justin Simmons. They chose to use the bulk of their free agency. In the offense signing Graham. Glasgow running back. Melvin Gordon and tied Nick Van et and backup quarterback Jeff Driscoll leaves them searching for additional team speed in the draft and that should have them taking a long look at the cornerback option as well as wide receivers at number fifteen pick Jeff. I agree with you. One hundred percents either going to be a wide receiver. Or it's going to be a cornerback if rugs isn't there it's a cornerback. Twenty three bottom half of the league. I don't agree. I think I think they're going to be better than Cleveland. Don't know if they'll be better than Arizona. I very curious to see how that De'andre Hopkins Situation Works out with the cardinals. They're better than the raiders. They're going to be better than the raiders. They're going to be better. The bears defense is good. I have I still have questions again about trubisky and Nick foles and that'll that clearly they don't believe in. Trubisky FOLES INSURANCE PLAN. Voles is probably going to be fifty fifty shot man. He might take over that starting role. Are THEY BETTER THAN ATLANTA? Maybe could be close better than the rams I would say. They're better than the Rams Texans. No okay now better than Pittsburgh but okay to be fair. This team should be at least sitting around the teens. The mid teens but twenty three. I'm a I'm a little shocked by that. What do you think it's text the first advantage text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. Hey you got the Kansas City chiefs braven San Francisco New Orleans and then the packers and your top five. The buccaneers cracked the top ten. I guess it will depend. So what is it GonNa take in? The draft can the broncos improve that ranking from twenty three to fifteen sixteen with a good draft as one player. Make the difference. The broncos big question and again nationally when you look at a team like Denver. You say drew lock. What is your quarterback going to be able to do and you can look at everything else. But if your quarterback is sitting in the average to below average still even based on his first five years or his first five games. You're going to rate this team differently. So get your thoughts on that one. The broncos sitting at twenty three thirty minutes after the hour Colefax. Let's get the latest on a local sports flash Friday on MORNINGS WITH GAIL as rediscover the joys of home with that state. Stay at home order one hundred things to do to say happy productive and saying join. Us Sixty nine looking at A. They didn't have a first victim. The second round he was the number one choice and you can work it down. His first sack ever then walk was border in prime time. In your derrick he starts his drive with a twenty yard line under pressure who get sacked out of ninety five Derek Wolfe. Brady hit the deck a ton of times against buffalo last week tall side and wore number ninety five just stays alive J. McCarron for the set move throughout the Dow Derek Wolfe Third and eleven now trying to convert three Sir Derek Wolfe a Bronco. No more spent eight seasons with the Denver broncos a part of a big part of Super Bowl fifty had a career high in two thousand nineteen with seven sacks. He was kind of a bright spot for Denver broncos decided to well they they ended up getting Shelby Harris and I thought that was a good move. They stuck with shelby he. He didn't get paid nearly what he thought he did. He was going to and they found a deal there but they they basically picked one or the other. We did a poll question a while ago. Who should the broncos other than Justin Simmons Chris Harris Junior Shelby Harris Derek Wolfe? Who should they make? Make sure they keep on this roster and I guess it looks like it was shelby Harris. I don't know if it was a make. Sure but sad. Man I mean Derek's going to get a one year six million dollars so good good deal for Derek Wolfe who really was never an upper echelon defensive lineman it was just a nice nice player for the Broncos and more importantly a good leader for this team so I would have liked to see it work out. But the broncos getting to that point where I just didn't quite make an make sense I guess Terrell Casey and Shelby Harris I I like it. It was going to come down between those two guys and if I had to pick I like Shelby Harris. Somebody made the interesting point. I don't know who it was might have been somebody here at the station. That shelby was great. Knocking down passes but was that because he couldn't get to the quarterback effectively enough so he would stop short and jump in the air and again. That's a tough tough one. If you truly watch the film you can see those things But that's a talent to be able to do that. Was Shelby Harris Constantly. Getting himself in the best position to get after the quarterback or is he big man throws up his arms. I mean yeah I'll take it. I like that but that was a decent point Aunt Joan's they believe in too. That was another thing. Was he a third round pick and this is a guy that we haven't seen take that next step yet you know. We've just seen him in a position where he was a third picks it pick seventy one. I'm trying to figure out the pick. Seventy one in two thousand and nineteen last year. They want to see more from him in this next upcoming season so I do think that they're looking saying all right. We can get Shelby Harris. For what the two point five so it was. It was a bigger deal for an easier deal for the broncos to do that. Plus it gives Draymond Jones another year of being behind a talented defensive lineman businesswise. It was the right move. It made the most sense. You you get almost. Are they the same player. They have different attributes but is one better than the other between Harrison Wolf. Probably not probably pretty damn close. So the broncos get Harris. He doesn't go on. He couldn't find another another team which was a kind of a shocker to me. It's been a strange free agency. Even with everything going on But they do again Jerry Jones. A key factor. Here they got shelby hairs for the one year. Deal cheap and now they have an opportunity to bring up. You know a young guy and dream on Jones who might be the future at that position? WanNa see a big leap for sure from him but Denver felt comfortable enough to move on from wolf and personally I just like the guy I mean like style. I like his leadership. I liked his post game and he was a pretty solid player. But if you have the same guy virtually and you can get them for much cheaper than you're GonNa do that. I mean that's that's just the way it is and so I think. Ultimately the Broncos made the right decision I tweeted it out. I said it would have liked to see Denver. Keep him somehow or try at least find a way but it it does make sense overall first advantage text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six your thoughts on on Derek Wolfe a definitely I mean. Now it's now it's what von Miller Todd Davis and Brandon McManus Leftover from the Super Bowl fifty era. That is how it goes tau goes. You mean the Bronco. We saw quickly with the broncos early and then a few guys were hanging on. But it's just a it's a tough scene for sure but now is the right move. It was the right business decision. But you talk about loyalty and all that with with teams and such and Yeah didn't work you're talking to difference between three and a half million dollars so you're saving money there you're saving money and you're getting a guy that you believe. Shelby hairs can be kind of a stopgap for Draymond Jones. So it Kinda works out. First event is text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six the Denver Post put out an article about the NFL if it does start next if we actually do get into an NFL season which some crazy predictions out there that are like. We're not going to have that the networks don't want to hear it. They don't WanNa talk about that either because football above everything else is good for business. It's good for your local economy. I remember I did a story. In Denver years ago about you can always tell when the broncos are playing because at certain time halftime all of the toilets are flushing in the in the city of Denver so it impacts the economy the. Nfl is a huge driver for local. So nobody wants to talk about baseball. Scrape basketballs great. Nhl's great but the NFL drives money like nobody else. But Sean Keillor in the Denver Post put out a headline corona virus fall forecast awful football more injuries and fewer games thinking. We have less games when we're about ready to add on a new game seventeenth game but will we get there. Lot of people. Don't quite believe that we're going to even get to a real regular season like we're used to curb street was on a Friday on a Friday program and basically said this isn't going to happen the NFL seasons not going to happen with the broncos. See Ucs you all know. None of it's going to happen and obviously that's difficult for a local scene where a local radio station that covers a lot preps college pro. We get into all of it here so that is a tough spot. It's a tough scene for sure. I can't think we're going to get that far out and not have something happening. I mean that's worth talking training camps. You Need Training Camp July. That's that's usually late July right. So it's march thirtieth. I don't know that I like all that. Gloom and Doom Prediction. I mean I know that there are people with a higher pay grade that have to really analyze things and that they're the ones figuring out about America in general in the world in general but when you get talking heads like me come on and say Yeah I don't. I don't think we're going to have football. I can say I can get closer to that date and be like yeah it. Mathematically it's not it doesn't make sense because you only got two weeks left before whatever unless you're willing to change everything that you do and I'm not sure a lot of these schedules will will change that much But if they do go to shorten season and this is my argument with the NBA. Could we see really bad football because if you shorten training camp you don't even have a training camp and preseason? Will you see you know the football? It's not even worth putting out there again and again and again this is my argument with the NBA. Nhl A couple of weeks of practice. A week or two of practice does not equal game. So if you're not if you're not having a regular season game in or at least ten to fifteen more for the playoffs you're gonna get rusty playoffs and I feel again like we're going against everything that we've built up seventy plus years with all these teams as you need to build the season you want to be playing football and November. You want to be playing your best basketball and March and be ready and now it's all about fine tuning but now this happens and suddenly we're like they're fine. They'll be in practice. I think you're going to be in store for some some strange basketball games from sloppy games. Summer you would much rather than hey listen. If it's a distraction that can help people out. I'm all for it. I just think that whatever when you get to that point with the season you have to figure out a way to have enough regular season games to be quote unquote warm ups before the playoffs. And it's not the best scenario but we're GONNA make do. I don't think you just jump in and start with the NFL please. I'm not even there yet. None of us should be there yet. Let's try to take this day by day and see where we are. And if we after if we're getting another restriction for April thirtieth okay. Let's get to that point and see where we are you know. We're we're hearing here in the state of Colorado that by April seventh to eleventh. We're going to start to get an idea. If the whole social distancing thing was working or if people should just go back because it's going to hit you no matter what so we should just go back to business and I'm not giving you any kind of political analysis there at all. Those are the facts presented. They're going to sit in hell. Man The New York The The New York mayor saying like not sure. If this was the best idea in the world right was it the mayor or the Governor. One of those one of those guys. I'm sorry yeah. It's fine basically saying hey we got into a position where we're not so sure this is. This was going to help either way and again. I don't know I have no idea. I'm GONNA do whatever the people that make way more money than US advise and I'm going to try my best. We've done that here at the radio station. We have worked with a skeleton crew for the last two weeks. Seems to be okay. We're figuring it out but by the time we get to these timelines then we can start analyzing how you know the these leagues are going to look. And that's where it's going to be interesting all right first advantage text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. We'll take a quick break auto Taylor.

Go to their social media pages and just seriously give him a look or their website is Weiss Jewelers Dot Com. I have been a customer of theirs. Well before they were an advertiser on this program and I'm wearing today I've got my citizen. Watch on today. All my watch has come from Weiss. Jewelers might the first bit of jewelry. The first piece of jewelry I bought from my wife at that point we were still dating came from Weiss Jeweler so so many great memories with emigrate business and do me a favor you know.

We're going to be out there. Keep up the good work talked to steelers also about gift cards as well and just stopping by and seeing seeing what they can offer at this point small staff. There are similar to small staff. Like what we have here. That's Weiss Jewelers Dot Com. Tell them we sent you here from the whole show powered by PD Energy Derek. Wolfe a bummer. I get it. This was a good business decision. Really was if you if you if Shelby Harris couldn't worked out than I say. Yes give the money to Derek Wolfe. But he went and got six from Baltimore. The broncos weren't there and ended up getting two point five for shelby. Could they have got to three to four for Wolf? Maybe but you know what at the end of the day? It's it's probably better for Derek Wolfe. You have to look at his position to. He's going to be on a hell of an of defensive line. Now I mean they're they're going to be stacked Michael Brokers didn't go through so they looked at Derek Wolfe He's going to go back. He's rockers staying with the rams so this worked out for the Ravens and Clay Campbell. Who they got from Jacksonville and that could be a pretty hefty duo there so Baltimore he got elected like I said I don't know that Wolf. I don't know the wolf's going to be up there in one of the Broncos of all time not even close there's a guy you're not gonna say top five Colefax but he's certainly a fan favourite and was a good leader for this team. In fact when the broncos would lose I always kind of looked into his leadership his voice of reason after the Games because he didn't get a lot of coachspeak you got you got some raw emotion from a guy like Derek Wolfe guy. That was just he was upset. He was pissed when he would tell you what's going on. He put blame himself playing on. Everybody think you're gonNA miss that leadership. He in Von Miller were tight. So we'll see how that impacts him going forward. But you know looking at this depth chart for the Broncos you gotta be happy with that line right now I mean I. I think it looks pretty good. Giral Casey Mike per cell in the Middle Shelby Harris now and then dream on Jones as a backup to harass. You got demarcus Walker there as well. I don't know how the Broncos are ranked twenty three. I guess based on the season that was but I have this based on a sixteen game season which is going to be the next season then. Seventeen Games I think. The BRONCOS can win. I really do if they do the right thing in the draft. This team can be close to ten. They were three away from last year to the moves. They made this offseason season. Help them get get three games. Better I think the answer is yes right now. Sitting at eight ten nine. Get the draft right and you gotta get an impact player. An impact player. Not Somebody that's going to be learning on the job and you will be learning on the job that somebody's going to be a lot of a lot of hand holding somebody can go out and make plays early on our. That's going to do it for us. We'll be back at it for a top text. Tuesday juice got his first one last week. Who's it going to be which is GONNA take it? That'll do it for us.

Falcons vs. Broncos Preview

"This is the faculty podcast special. Podcast the falcons on the podcast network. I'm david walker today. We're going to dive into the week. Nine match between the atlanta falcons and the denver broncos. We're going to look at the. pf scores their rankings. The matchups on the field and see if we can figure out how this game is going to play out on sunday to start off. We're gonna look at the falcons defense. And how they match up against this broncos offense in yes. I know before you start laughing and talking about this falcons defensive the miserable. They have been at times this year. I do think it's worth pointing out that since raheem morris has taken over. The defense has been playing much better including some key guys on the defense who started the season off. Pretty roughly dion jones has improved a bit over the past three games. Likewise neil looks like he is getting close to being back to the player. He was in his best years in two thousand sixteen. Two thousand seventeen. He has been hitting hard and he has been covering a lot of ground on the field. So that improvement is good to see as well as the improvement. We're seeing from some of the young guys. Aj trumper particular the first round draft. Pick the corner. His been improving week over week. And that's really impressive when you consider. These guys didn't have a traditional training camp. These guys didn't have four preseason games. In which to cut their teeth they were thrown essentially right onto the field in the nfl with time to get prepared for it in this very strange cova impacted season so the fact that we're getting better productivity from aj terrell right now in fact you know getting close to good is a great sign for his long term potential and this is something i think falcon spans should cling to as we look towards the new regime. New gm the new head coach. That come in that. You've got some guys here who were showing that they can be. Contributors on whatever the roster looks like in twenty twenty one and beyond it does not require that all fifty three guys get blown up I think at this point you've got quite a few players on defense that you may want to hang onto you. You may wanna see how they develop under new coaching staff and has contributed to the falcons doing much better job. Holistically on defense the collapse of lions game notwithstanding Certainly the past few games against carolina against the alliance against the vikings those have been offenses that have featured Relatively decent quarterbacks kirk cousins has been in the league for several years Teddy bridgewater is a capable starter. obviously matthew stafford is a very good starter in this league. That's why the match up coming up on sunday against the broncos is an interesting one going up against one of the worst ranked quarterbacks in the league in drew lock. You've probably seen the videos of him. Dancing lip synching on the sideline. He certainly gets a lot of attention for that The reality is though as a passer. He is having a pretty bad season. So i'm not sure where all this hype is coming from for him other than the dancing Right now he's completing about fifty eight percent of his passes. He's got just under a thousand yards and four touchdowns and five interceptions so his his ratios a bit upside down there. His quarterback rating is seventy two So again not not particularly good and even his qbr espn ranking has at forty one point six so he is underwater and ask for pif. He is the thirty fifth out of thirty six quarterbacks ranked he's there he's pretty much at the bottom and that's going to be a key in this game for the falcons especially as we look now towards the guys in front of drew lock that'll offensive line. They've got a couple of interesting is on the edges left tackle bowls He is in his fourth year in the league. Former first round draft pick. He has been improving every year and pf right now has him ranked as the third best tackle in the league. This guy can pass block very well. He's good in the run game So again left tackle. They're pretty well. Set a familiar. Name for falcons fans at right tackle. Demar dotson interesting to note here. You know he was on the injury report earlier this week. We'll see if he makes the game looks like he probably will But again another quality starter on the outside the interior. Though of the broncos offensive line is where the question marks begin to be raised Starting with the left guard dalton prisoner. He is a former second round pick. This is his second year and right now he's not playing particularly well according to pf. He is ranked fifty fifth. A seventy five guys in pass blocking So that is someone that greedy jarrett's gonna probably go after Their center rookie. Lloyd cushenberry who was drafted in the third round. Alessio guy that many falcons fans wanted to see him draft instead of you know maybe hennessy. And he's having a markedly miserable rookie season The in total his ranked dead last of any center in the league and his pass blocking grade is nearly at the bottom. It's it's dreadful. And you know again as i mentioned with rookies before this is a rough season for these guys to get to cut their teeth. No preseason no camp looks like cushenberry's really struggling at least in his rookie year and right next to him at right guard. The the story doesn't get any better austin schloffmans who was on the injury earlier this week. second year in the league. He has the absolute worst. Pass blocking grade right now if anyone playing Guard in the nfl. So this is looking at these. Three guys that are slated to be on the inside of the broncos offensive line. This is where you look at guys like. Greg jarrett John kaminsky who the falcons are getting back from the covid. Nineteen our list These are guys that need to take advantage of that week. Interior of the broncos offensive line. You can do that. There's a good chance you can put Drew lock on his back or force him into areas. Apparently this guy that You know his stats show he. He's just not a good quarterback right now and that's not to say he can't grow into one and certainly let's not rule out the possibility. The falcons defense making him look like an all pro in this game but that interior offensive line is going to be The area to watch on the field. For the falcons. Defense on sunday. The receivers for the broncos. Obviously obviously the the the big guy to pay attention to his rookie receiver out of alabama. Jerry jeudy who was taken in the first round so far. He's looks pretty good obviously again. You know a rookie. It's gonna be hard for him to contribute at a really high level but right. Now he's got three hundred fifty nine yards and a touchdown on the season so still building his resume with the team but again Someone to keep an eye on. He certainly has the physical talents to become a key player. Tight end noah fant is in his second year. Here's a player. That is obviously Progressing his his score with has improved dramatically from year. One to year two. He is a player to pay attention to as well Nick vannett also at tight end. Not really a game changer. At least not this year you know. He's he's one of those guys. I think they showed a lot of promise. Early on just hasn't quite lived up to it at this point and then finally got a day sean. Hamilton wide receiver in his third year. He's not moving. The needle and this receiving corps for drew lock is honestly. They're sort of mediocre and they've got potential. Jerry jeudy absolutely could turn into a really really good receiver league. Obviously the falcons have to former receivers out of alabama. He's got a good pedigree there But right now other than that. This is not a receiving core. That i think is going to absolutely terrorize. This falcons. secondary and drew lock is not a quarterback that i think is going to terrorize this balcony. Secondary that said the falcons do have their issues obviously mentioned aj role playing pretty well as a young guy and he is improving game after game. Great to see his development. Isaiah oliver i think for all of the negativity around him. His actually been improving. You know incrementally Throughout the season he's only ranked forty fifth out of one hundred seventeen corners in the league. He's got a sixty one point seven grade right now per pf again. I feel like there is a tremendous amount of hatred for this guy granted. He gets a lot a lot of his scores being bolstered by his run defense. Which is graded you know. Really well and his pass rush was which is great it really well not necessarily what you're looking for in a cornerback. Coverage grade is still a bit of a struggle So oliver is a guy that i think could be taken advantage of a little bit. We're looking at that in this game And then the veteran obliterate wilson Who is you know. He's been hit or miss at times. i think he's having a little bit of a down year but he's he's mostly reliable and the name to pay attention to as well as dark as denard. They brought him back It looks like he might be ago for sunday And if he's in there the the quality of the cornerback play. It should be up dramatically. He was In arguably having the best season of any of the corners on the falcons defense going into the the the back. Half of the defense with the The safeties ricardo allen. Still struggling this year and honestly with the fact that new coaching staff is coming in Rico is you know he's getting up there. He's getting close to thirty. He's had that you know. The achilles injury may have been part of his problem. That's holding back his performance. This may be his last hurrah in in atlanta. The cap hit next year. They're going to need to make some tough choices and the way he's playing right now. He just simply isn't justifying long-term position on this roster. We'll see how it plays out new. Coaching staff may come in fresh eyes and disagree with that but right now he's not earning that paycheck killing neil on the other hand has been playing much better the past three weeks For two weeks so he he earned a grade of seventy five or higher By pf so clearly. His performance has been a lot more of what we've expected from him. We've seen the big hits. We've seen the big plays He could be an a a big factor in this game the fact that fant noah fant the tight end is one of the The weapons that lock is going to look towards. Neil is probably going to have to do better and coverage He's been much better run support But hopefully he can return to his days when he was Doing all of it. For the falcons Finally the running backs for the broncos. You've got a little bit of a running back by committee. Even though the the big name on this list. Melvin gordon was certainly bell cow back when he was with the chargers Gordon is playing pretty well. He's averaging four point two yards per carry roughly sixty three yards per game about fifteen carries per game so You know he's he's getting the kind of productivity you you'd want if you're in a rotation. I'm not sure that that's what they were looking for from him. And he is sharing snaps right now with phillip lindsay who is having another really solid seasons six point four yards per carry. He's averaging six seventy one yards per game on fewer carries so again. This is a guy that You know i think his continually outperformed Where people thought he would be And if you've got him at fantasy you're probably doing fairly well with him right now. So these are two guys that are highly productive between the two of them you know. They're they're giving the broncos over one hundred thirty yards on the ground per per game The falcons have done well against the run this year for the most part So this is going to be an interesting match up if it again. Looking at that broncos offense in looking at how they are put together with Drew lock and sort of this sub par collection of receivers. It's really gonna come down to this running game. It's gonna come down to the interior of that broncos offensive line as i see it the game changer. Here as always is greg jarrett He has still been one of the best. Defensive tackles and league. He is an absolute game. Recor up the middle and given the is he is going against on sunday afternoon. I believe jarrett's can have a big big game. I think he's going to terrorize drew. Lock up the middle. I think he's going to be the differentiator. For the falcons defense on sunday. Will the running game going. That's probably going to be their best defense against Grady jarrett The other name to pay attention to that. I think could be a big wild card in this game. Is john kaminsky. They brought him onto this roster to be a nickel Interior rusher and he has shown flashes of being able to do that. This season really excited about his long term potential. This could be a game where he gets that confidence boost because he's going up against some guys that are really struggling in in pass blocking so. He's a named pay attention to on sunday right now. If you were going to ask me which of these groups. I would favor. This may be the last time. I say this for the remainder of the two thousand twenty season but this matchup actually looks. Good for the falcons. Defense i'm going to give them the slight nod here under the belief that grady jarrett is gonna be in the backfield all day long. And he's gonna make drew lock regret that he showed up for the game. So we're gonna talk about how this falcons offense matches up against the broncos defense but before we do that we're gonna take a quick break. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

In the upcoming falcons versus broncos game week nine the nfl the broncos. Three or four falcons two and six talk. Now about how the falcons offense is going to match up against this actually. Pretty good broncos defense These guys have played pretty well this year. They've got some really good players of the falcons do need to be a little bit concerned about. Let's dive into it Let's start with the pass rush because obviously it's all about the interior. It's about the trenches and right now the broncos have two guys with over five sacks on one side with five and a half sacks you've got former first round. pick bradley chubb. He is a guy that you know. I years showed some flashes. This is the year we're looks. Like that is finally coming to fruition. His third year in the league five and a half sacks he has been a bit of a game record for the broncos turning into the player that they hoped he would be on the other side melik read in his second. Year has five sacks He has he has been another player. That is helping to bolster this broncos defense. Here's the thing though. Those guys are going to be facing jake matthews and kill mcgarry and jake matthews right now even though his ranking is forty first of seventy four for tackles in the league his pass blocking grade is a seventy seven point nine so he's actually doing a fairly good job of keeping matt ryan clean and on the other side. Caleb gerry honestly is the bigger story. For this falcons offensive line He actually ranks higher. He's ranked thirty third of seventy four tackles in his second year. He has taken a big leap forward in year to year. One was a was difficult and granted. He missed a good bit of you. Know his Training camp With the heart surgery he had to have and it right now though he is just playing really good football especially the past several weeks him and chris lindstrom. The two first round picks from last year are really beginning to deliver on the potential that the falcons drafted them for so. These are the two guys that are going to go up against chubb and read a an honestly. This one's hard to call Chubb and reader are good pass rushers. At least they're showing that so far But mathewson mcgarry are also good pass blockers so this one feels a bit like a push now. The interior of the broncos defensive line is not quite as good In the middle you've got Deshaun williams who is a quality player. he is know one of those guys who's he's a little undersized to be sort of in those in the in the middle of that defensive line but he's playing well in his second year likewise Next to him dramont jones in his second year Just sort of a marginal player not really getting it. Done across the board former third round pick Mediocre in run defense and then the pass rush and finally demarcus walker and his fourth year. His first two years and league were look really promising. The last two have been less so he is still a really good run. Defender get a lot done in the pass rush so looking at the trenches we have to go. Look at the falcons offensive line on the interior Earlier chris'll instrument right guard has been playing fantastic football the past several weeks. He has been a considerable Joy to watch a in both pass blocking in the run game. He plays with a bit of an edge. we've missed on the falcons offensive line. Maybe arguably going back to the harvey doll days when hawley was last Wearing the black and red Next to him. Alex mack for as good as he has been his time atlanta This is one of his worst seasons at least by grade It actually is his worse season so far That's not to say that he's bad. He's ranked twenty second of thirty eight. He's got a sixty four point nine overall score which sorts a sort of puts in below average maybe slightly below average And honestly i think we see that in his level of play some of that honestly comes down to the fact that mac is really made is more of a you know a guy that likes to get out in the running game and to get to the second level in. that's not the kind of running game that dirt cutter is calling unfortunately And that's probably holding alex mack back from his his highest potential. It that in the is almost thirty. Five years old. He actually turns thirty five. this month. Clearly in the waning days of his career unfortunately You do have to wonder falcons maybe towards the end of the season. Start thinking about giving matt some snaps to see if he's going to be able to make some contributions and what he's gonna look like in into the future since they drafted him to be the heir-apparent matt Finally left guard still an issue. James carpenter still not good. He has been acceptable impasse blocking he's been pretty bad in run blocking And he's going to be two next year. I'll be surprised if he makes the roster next year right now. There's the falcons could look towards matt. Go no it's. They tried it in camp this year but apparently they don't wanna roll four with that. They're fine with what carpenters doing right. Now he is clearly the weakest link here. Don't be surprised. If the broncos try to run some stunts and to take advantage of carpenter and mac on the interior because matthews mcgarry are playing so well All in all though this this feels like a push the broncos could do some damage Matthews does occasionally give up the pressure on the edge and chubb is a player. That's playing really well right now. So again the trenches are going to be a big factor. Matt ryan for all the flack that he has gotten this year. He's actually on pace for a really really solid season. He just has the four interceptions which certainly falcon spans. Who don't like him more than happy to point out. But he's got twelve touchdowns Twenty four hundred yards on pace for almost for over forty nine hundred yards on the season twenty four touchdowns eight interceptions his rating of ninety seven. Point six is pretty good. His qbr from seventy five point ryan is having a good year. It may not be a stellar year. It may not put him in the top. Three or top four. But he's easily top ten quarterback right now so all of the screaming about finding another quarterback finding another quarterback. Honestly the with falcons is not matt ryan. He's playing good football and he's actually in playing better football as of late. The question is going to be. Who is he going to have to give the ball to. Julio jones for the first time in a long time did not show up on the injury report this week which is fantastic. News jones honestly is going to be key here because right now based on the injury report. It looks like calvin ridley with that foot. Injury is probably knocking to make the game. He hasn't practice yet. We don't have the news as of this recording on friday yet but my guess is he will miss this upcoming game and hopefully be back for the week ten matchup so jones by himself obviously on the damage The question though is who is he going to face because right now The broncos have to corners. That are just really really good. They've got a j Who is you know arguably their top quarter although you can make a strong case that bryce callahan on the opposite side is actually the better player right now. He is ranked second of all quarters in the league pipe. Eff and while callahan started the week on the practice list does not participating as well as he did practice on thursday which would indicate he is probably going to be back in the game on sunday buoy however did not practice on thursday again. We'll have to see if he's able to make friday's practice and there's probably gonna be a good chance. He makes the game. If not that could be a big advantage for the falcons who are going to be potentially down receiver. Now if ridley's in the game he is going to be a game changer. He has been phenomenal in his third season He leads the falcons right now receiving and he's gonna be a guy that could take advantage of a backup corner Either him or julio and that has sort of trick this year the falcons have been at their best when they've had both guys on the field they forced the Opposing defense to have to commit just one guy to one of them and right now. Don't have ridley look for russell. Gauge christian blake those guys to get those snaps They are clearly not the same caliber of ridley. Although gauge has been phenomenal in his third year is sort of that third wide receiver on this roster So this is something to watch this. Could actually you know tilt the scale one way. Or the other. Towards the falcons towards the broncos depending on who is in who is out obviously injuries in the nfl. Or something you have to deal with. But this particular matchup could be critical. Falcons offense goes through the passing game. They are not A run focus team with dirk cutter clearly right now based on these injuries. Where they're trending the falcons they do. Have julio and that's always going to be a game changer. But they've also got callahan and he is a phenomenal corner. And this one feels like a push at least you know corners against wide receivers hayden hearst. He's gonna be a factor in this game. He's a guy that has sort of been hit. And miss for the falcons this year. Which is understandable because he obviously didn't have a camp with matt ryan. Since first year with the team. It takes some time to develop that chemistry with quarterback with he has gotten opportunities. He's looked the part. He looks like a lot more athletic tight end than what we had. In austin hooper. And when he's gotten those shots he looks like a guy that has a big catch radius. That's gonna be important because the broncos have some tolerance weaknesses at linebacker and safety Their linebackers alexander johnson on one side You know he's. He's a decent players in his second year in the league last year was third ranked third of all. Pf linebackers this year fourteenth. So still play playing pretty well Likewise next to him. Josie joel third year in the league. Fourth round pick. He's fortieth alam eighty five linebackers and actually sort of in that same range for coverage so that someone that you know. If i gets matchups against him he could potentially take advantage of the really comes down to the safeties. Kareem jackson veteran this league. Former first round pick out of alabama he is ranked twenty second by pf and honestly is better against the run in coverage his his coverage scores sort of mediocre at best and finally justin simmons in his fifth year in the league quality player. Really again better against the run. Although his coverage grade is seventy two point nine twelfth out of Eighty-four safety so Certainly nothing to scoff at Hearst will have a bit of a you know a time here so if he's going to contribute he's gonna have to take advantage of some key matchups if he if he can get them. Finally if we look at the running backs taw girly. This feels like a game again where that interior of the broncos defensive line if they're going to get it going that's that's an opportunity there Girly obviously likes to kick it to the outside. I don't see him being a big contributor this game because this is again a fairly good broncos defense and that is how this is playing out. Guys the the falcons offense has the players. They have the talent but missing. Ridley could be a big factor in this game. Obviously julio can still get it done by himself but if they can commit to keeping him in double coverage entire game ryan's going to have to drop down to some russell gauge or someone like christian blake orlova days a kia's and they just simply not on the same level as calvin ridley. And you know that's where the matchup is is going to be made in this game so the interior feels like a push. The wide receivers fill like a push in. I don't know that hayden hearst in time have done enough this year for us to give them the mod so right now this feels. like complete. Tossup falcons offense can accomplish something but at the same time. This broncos defense is legitimate so for having the call this particular matchup. This feels like a push. The injuries here are the big factor if calvin ridley plays right now. He's being listed as questionable for the game. Which doesn't rule him out. And of course. A j. for the broncos if either one of these guys doesn't make the game it's going to change the complexion so for now consider this one a really close push and ultimately slightly. Favoring atlanta's calvin ridley can play so the question is. How is this one going to play out on sunday. Well here's how i see. It drew lock not going to be a great quarterback in this game. I believe grady. Jarrett's can apply a lot of pressure Believe that the falcons corners have been playing better. I don't necessarily think they're going to have a shutdown game. But i don't see putting up a ton of points that said my faith in dirk cutter is waning In honestly if is never been there and right now the falcons need they're passing game to get going and this is a pretty good broncos secondary with callahan again if aj. Mrs that's a big downgrade on one of the corners that could be the factor in this game and that feels like what we need to watch out for so right. Now i'm gonna give the falcons just a little bit of an edge on the belief that their defense can have their best game of the year. Maybe the last time we'll say that again from any predictions and the believed the falcons offense will be able to do just enough to squeeze out the win. I'm gonna go with a prediction of seventeen. Fourteen falcons win on the road. Go to three and six on the season. We will be back on sunday after the game. Evan burchfield will join me for the post game. Podcast recap what actually happens.

BK Previews The Patriots with Rick Lewis

"There will be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with Brandon Krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and Pasta. Thursday broncos country. Yeses have year around here than it is in Tennessee where Tennessee. Titans get in trouble and I think Chubby big trouble as a team got together last week and held a unsanctioned workout a national area. I don't know what the penalty is going to be but beleaguered he'd look to make examples out of coaches who weren't wearing face coverings and find them each one hundred grand and they'll organizations to fifty. I think you're going to be looking at fines in the millions and perhaps a loss of draft picks even though likely wasn't might variables idea or. Gm John Robinson because they got together as a team, the team will suffer the. The penalties. Together. Even though I'm sure some of the players were there won't be with the titans for too long just because of the nature of the NFL. We did see the Broncos hold practice on Wednesdays they prepare business as usual like everyone in football world waiting, and in some cases, perhaps expecting more positive cases to come out of New England after the Stefan Gilmore positive. Corona. Virus. We found out about Wednesday morning. It is nice some good news though out of New England or POW IAN rapoport from NFL network reporting no new positive cases therefore, the Patriots the for the second straight day they'll work from home and. Crossed their fingers that Stefan Gilmore and Cam Newton. Positive tests were an isolated incident of course, not really how incubation periods work but everyone around here certainly, GonNa Cross, their fingers and as I'm sure you know by now drew lock sight for Sore Eyes Out slinging the rock we get to watch very much of drew throwing the ball. But what we did see during special teams period and then the very little bit of individually were allowed to watch he was from about hard. was maybe a bit of a surprise, but you wanna see what he's able to do here. What Vic Fangio said about Balancing letting drew get out there and sling it versus dialing in back and and so I asked. Not. Only had he balanced that but also. Inserting him into the lineup two reps if you will with the first team because unlike a corner a wide out that you can. Dial up and throttle back a quarterback you want them to work on their timing. So here was answer well, who take in individual period where there some? Good amount of throwing going on there and we'll see how he looks. And then judge from there, we'll just constantly judge it throughout the practice and see where he's at our. Again before work while today. Today Dan is first day back practice. So let him do individual that does well in rupture in their CI wakes up tomorrow feeling and. Go from there. So that's probably the test is drew lock will make his return to the practice field today, but will be able to see if he's letting rip again. Odds are his shoulder doesn't hurt very much. If he's not out there for whatever reason or if he's taken a little bit of Zip off the ball and I get that, we don't have a gun out there but everybody was standing there watching them all notice that he was leading a review go to my two. Hundred Agency go to advocate Denver Sports. You'll see the only video that's out there. I'm not the only person that shot it but sure that other outlets had it with better cameras TV cameras standing there but we only got to record one throat because said, throwing special teams leading it to shoot that, and then the little bit we got the shoot of individual. It was all four quarterbacks kinds of rolling to the right and throwing the ball to an equipment manager. And that was just one throw so. If if he's out there, letting it fly today, that'd be an encouraging sign and then we'll have to find out. After practice how much work he did with the team? So that'll be. Certainly exciting to track, but we won't get to see it because they kick us out of practice too early. On Injury Front, we got a little more clarity from VIC FANGIO's we're seeing the group of players working on the side field with athletic trainers continued to grow. We won't see Caja Handler this week he's out on that side field Noah fans just wandering around during practice yesterday. I think he was in it. Getting treatment and then came out and was just kind of near the tight ends as we were in the same area we were leaving the practice field by the media entrance for two group, which is me and Jeff, Wald, Mike, Klis, Arnie Stapleton, and Rhino Halloran. A couple of nine news cameras So we're right there by that door. If you ever go the facility, it's the one that the media normally walks through kind of on the I. Guess that would be the what. South side of the building by the parking lot there. But anyway let's more detail than you need. The titles were right in front of us and no family just kind kinda wandering back and forth He didn't seem to really be paying attention, but he was near the tight ends. So Vic said that will won't see no offense likely this week or cage Hamblur nor Jay boy, but he is also out there on that side field, he liked lot dealing with a shoulder injury and then Jerry Tachi. I'm not sure if we got any clarification on him but we will today for sure. So the Broncos in short order, probably GonNa have to figure out some roster moves. To clear up some space to bring some of those I our guy our our guys back not just. Aged boy but demarcus Walker and Dream Aunt Jones another still a couple of weeks away. But. At some point, you're going to have to do some shuffling around I. Don't think they're going to continue to carry four quarterbacks. Here's what I do think though Br, rippin may never be on a practice squad again. I guess unless he goes into New England, if he doesn't up starting throws five interceptions and then. You'll also. See them probably move on from either bortles or driscoll, and then put one of them back on practice squad. I would think the bring driscoll back just because they have more money invested in them. Maybe they bring them both back if they both want to stick around their salaries. Are, different driscoll's already guaranteed plus I don't know if it's offset against a salary for a practice squad guy one of those guys vested Veterans Will Get twelve, thousand, two, hundred, a week is what they would normally get if they signed a new practice squad deal that's what people like Sylvester Williams and Nigel Br, Adam or getting but. We'll we'll see how that all plays out. Spielberg rippin. He talked yesterday and I want you to hear the whole thing. 'cause I just I like the kid and I think that he's. He says all the right thing. So we'll hear from Brett rippin. And then we'll get to Rick Lewis. So actually before we jump into Brera now, I WANNA, shout out my friends at chug water chilly water chilly dot com use Promo Code Chug Water K for twenty five percent off all their great products of from spices to everything else. You can imagine great chili powder at Chug water chilly dot com, Promo Code chug water be K.. You can also pick up truck water chilly this spicer western life at local grocers near You Fangio's answer on Mike pursell while rather I want you guys to hear that but let's let's listen to Brett ribbons. Zoom call with us yesterday and he was asked as you'd expect because that's what's in the news right now about. Playing in New England and. is going to be okay playing that game if the League keeps going schedule I don't think there's any concern on our end. We trust the league will make the right decision. You know whatever happens happens right now we have to focus on you know the game plan and getting ready for the game for parents. We're GONNA play on Sunday. One right on our. Bread bill chickens has had a ton of success against young quarterbacks like yourself. Is You look at their tape you expect a lot of disguises, a lot of different coverages try. Force. Football a little bit. Does a great job every single week I don't know if it's necessarily just against young quarterbacks. But you know yeah they do a great job disguising obviously they use a lot of DVD's which makes it tough to identify in a run game in US star search out in the past where your one on ones are and different things like that. Obviously, we know it's going to be a challenge and brought on our side. We just have to you know make sure that we have a great week of practice. Week in film room. Radio on Sunday. This case that you've seen Has always made a point of saying he likes to Change Week to week what he does on defense have you seen that in the in the video you bought that already? For sure I think. You know obviously, which has been around for a long time. Have I respect for him. You know what? He's been able to do with that. Program for the last twenty years now or so since I was in young kids so. I think like you said he does kind of change weeks. he's able to do that very well, those guys you know buying what the game plan has ever week. So on our simple went from an offensive standpoint of you know we have to make sure that you when we get to the game, Kinda understand what the plans that'd be for that game, and then how we attack that Martin Close bracket. There is drew watch. Going on right now but you're sitting there in the Wednesday zoom tier. Does that mean you're thinking or you will be the starter. On Sunday at New England. Yeah I'm just I'm going about it like I'm going to play Sunday You know obviously there's some uncertainty with drew right now and you know he's going to be practicing a little bit today and not straight. I'm really happy that he's able to come back and My step points just I have to prepare like I'm going to play and you know to coach is telling me hey, you know on Thursday or Friday you know drew's rating go that he can play you know that's awesome to. I'll be there to support him You know get him ready. To. Ibra. Last week obviously was a bunch of walk throughs and except in the week before. So essentially you're you're I work with the ones this week I'm wondering, what do you think that would make the biggest difference in your game on Sunday you're starting as we expect. Things just getting full speed with these guys. You know being able to run these plays spill the timing. At routes different things like that you know being able to be in. For a whole week. You know would definitely be helpful. I think that. That's that's the mentality that. He's not make sure that Get full speed rafts nature out on the same page with these guys Kiss A. Reminder, please lower your hand. If you no longer have a question next one to close monitor. And bridges what is all on that a little bit? What is the difference from? Preparing on short week like you did. Last week, and then now having added days in in terms of what you can actually get to from a preparation stem when you on a short week. You're obviously watching more film. I on a normal week. I, have you know while with the whole quarterback room has a process of which about to? Wash them on games and then formation all cut ups through cutouts situational caps, red zone cutoffs so. What you see a more throughout the Megan obviously, you're giving full speed raps against the scouting look which you're going to be planned for that. We saw yours able to see more times you're able to visualize. Let's look like out there and you know that can be very helpful. Some. Bread I know you kind of touched on this but would you andrew being such good friends? How do you balance wanted to see him get back and get healthy and play, versus now this is your chance to play for as long as it'll last. I guess how do balance that on a human level? I don't think there's any balancing it all. At the end of the day I i. understand my role I. Think this is you know this is true. Loss team drew lock is leader of this French. Over the past year, he's done an unbelievable job. On my stoop I have to go out and do what I. Helped him and help his team win at. That's means playing this week in helping our team win this week, and that's all focused on. I. Don't really look at it from a standpoint. Know he's taken away opportunity for me I look at. You know I'm getting an opportunity, and then if he comes back, that's great opportunity for me to help him. A and twenty, twenty, all of us. Can Be ready for anything and last week. The Patriots flew in Kansas City on Day game and play the game. Shot in the dark your and your past college high school youth. What's what's The oddest most challenging situation you've ever been thrown into to try to play again whether power outage I don't know. I mean girl growing up in the North West and. Played. At because he stayed up definitely played in some some crazy weather games by I've never had a sly. Day playing that's been you know very difficult from a mental standpoint and a physical standpoint is why they don't have to get off the plane and go play You know probably dirty jobs. Time Perfume Taylor Brooks. I chatted with your dad yesterday Super Great, Guy Your family so nice. I was in spokane actually before this. So go highlanders. He said for a while he thought that you were going to go the baseball rout of course, like he did. Then of course, you chose the football row I'm just wondering when was it for you that you decided to go the football route how how young were you and why did you choose football out instead of baseball? It was probably around my. Where you're you know. I. Think. I. Just want to have a strong passion for the game football not that I didn't for baseball. Be I. Think I just started to realize that more opportunities were presenting themselves in football I really enjoy the gang. Baseball allies specialist my heart officer. Last three ANDROID and Kyle. Go ahead Andrew. Brett from going back in watching the game films from the jets. What did you see differently that maybe you didn't see when you were out there and WanNa correct going forward. I think there was a lot of players on film That's that's one thing that I look at you notice when I go back and watches. y'All WanNa see was I- processing things well. Throwing the ball accurately and I think there was a lot more good than bad. Obviously, the three interceptions now, you never want us out in. One particularly when I'm roadhouse route outside of pocket there. Web, and there's absolutely no excuse for that. So Matt standpoint, you know I know those are easy things for me to clean out as I've never been that type of player. Throughout my entire career to make mistakes like that. You know I just have to balance a little bit more. We made sure them making quick decisions getting rid of the all. And then not forcing when I don't need to. Yeah Britain that regard on that kick you through. It looked like they ran the same coverage or something similar on the ball you through the Patrick that helps deal that game is, is that an indication to you the K. I, learn this on the fly and frankly trust you kind of learn on the fly. For sure I mean I think that's The, beauty of having the. The. Not The habit that Microsoft surface on the sideline there You're able to go and look at the pictures. On that pick six. Obviously like you said I saw the the coverage. There was a trap coverage like man initially no I was going to have judy on the hour out. And according to Scott. Sat. But thankfully, recently, same coverage later in the game you know Tim did a great job down line there and we were able to get into field goal range. So I think every great quarterbacks from the start of the NFL. Has Been Able to do that and it's just something I think. Dealing gains make adjustments like that. On one count. Right interceptions aside did you feel? In the jets game that the game is starting to slow down for you on your certain to have to think last before you play them off the field how it how you kind of just you know living in the moment like you said an and understand your role preparing on a daily basis was with everything going on. Yeah It just goes back to the mentality. You know I've had since I've been on practice squad here is it doesn't necessarily changes you know go practice every single day do what you're asked and try to get better. You know I think that I. I can see this entire team doing that from my standpoint. You know I think that help getting in that game on Thursday. Being able to get those reps definitely helps Remind standpoint scene faster being able to react quicker but. You know everything else. It's just try better this week in you know come out on Sunday and play my best game yet. Discuss So this is drew locks team and we and we knew that but it's I guess I don't know if reassuring the right word but. I think interesting that Brett rippin and and so you heard me ask about how close they are and I've talked about it plenty. But he's. He's. Aware that this is drew locks team and he says and does all the right things. It feels like he's still going up starting. But what's how well I saw drew throw the ball yesterday and in that limited work. I think if he's healthy, the Broncos are going to have decision to make rick. Lewis and are going to talk about that here coming up and we of course, taped it yesterday. So you got to factor that in before rick and I get going though want to hear from Vic Fangio on might pursell I So here's what Fangio who who had. A couple stop before he got here with some. Nice words about his nose tackle. Yeah. I mean Mike is Robot story you know the guys tremendous worker. Dedicated her severence A. Good story of all, I was with Mike when he first came in the League us on our practice squad. San, Francisco got activated for a couple of games. Now. Left there he stayed at San Francisco and while I was in Chicago and San Francisco. Let him go. I talked to. Mike Practice squad for a few weeks. Later keep them there and then you know you know his journey than last year prior to. Camp starting or right at the end of the off season after that. Spring League full that you know they approached me about Melissa data have this know that he's going to be hard guy cut. I don't know why he's now we're stuck anywhere but. He's a good football player and he's tough. Strong. Rate Team may then really happy for him personal. Okay. If I don't think before we get to rick. Lewis broncos radio analyst on the broncos. Radio Network Brainer Madison's the team's player rap was AFC special teams player of the week. We didn't talk about that very much congratulated but was never asked about it. He was asked about some of his kicking success but as a team player Rep, there were some interesting things that he said including this answer to the question of are you comfortable playing and what of your teammates been asking you about? All the. Options the that the players have if they're not comfortable playing here was Brandon's answer new. Personally. I can't speak for them but me personally comfortable with traveling and go narrow not seen protocols they've worked obviously. You know. To work as long as we have compliance with that's one of the biggest things name sure that like I said, we are on these guys Obviously it's it's there hanging out with people all the time. To. Be Okay that's fine with all. Be Hanging with outside people were new. People. Swath. Make sure that the people who are hanging out with a lot know making sure you know hey, I'll miss you know if you've been hanging with other people might be sick. So arpanet attitude Mike. Direct. Contact with is the friends that seeing every day or are at times. You actually just asked this question today about. This. Team decided players wasn't saint. We didn't WANNA go wasn't safe and. We would be able to do that. Really it's not legal in our contracts to do that Now there's a way to kind of get get away get away with it, but you kind of go about it would be that you'd have to show that there was you have to prove legally really an aquarium us. There was negligence on Patriots negligence on the Broncos of the way would travel it just in that to put people at risk because the safety protocol ran. By all the doctors in. The health professionals. Seeking agree with the protocols the by Dan are safe not supply. So if we players side is not you don't WanNa go because we more. Safe we have a huge. So it seems unlikely that they would end up in court in the next couple of days to prevent playing, and if the League deems it okay. Then they're gonNA, they're gonNA play but then it's a big if between now and I guess Saturday when they get on the plane, maybe what's realistic as they pushed back to Monday or Tuesday, and then that shortens up the broncos week as they return home to play Miami, but it also gives you more time to get drew lock back healthy same time it gives. Patriots time for Cam Newton to get healthy as well. All Right Rick Lewis joins me every week and I always appreciate it. So here's my chat with broncos radio analyst. The first question and we don't necessarily have an answer other than what we've heard this point and at the time of this taping, which will let everyone behind the curtain. Monday afternoon a little before four. The broncos and patriots are playing Sunday in New England. But if you're a betting man and you go to your favorite gambling site, which I know is fan duel or mind which draft kings. What would you bet that the broncos and pats actually play this game and I'll even give you the caveat. Won Broncos, player who told me they're planning on this being there by week and that was based on the same information you and I have that wasn't from the PA or anywhere else that was just common sense. I. Think. Yeah that's interesting In the NFL is publicly saying that the game is on. I think they will play the game and I think it's Probably seventy five percent chance that the game is played in that that's assuming that there's not another four five players that test positive for New England. Right now just one will cam? Newton would be number two. if there's a couple more guys. Yeah they probably. either. Postpone. It. For. A day or two because the problem for New England right now is going to be able to even practice for the game. This is the same thing we saw. With Tennessee. They closed the facility. How long were they close it for is Cam GonNA come back. We'll can't even get a day a practice. If, they don't open things back up till. Say they open up Friday. And then cam gets cleared on Saturday. He is not going to get any practice at all. In fact, even the way it's looking right now if he's planning on playing, he's not GonNa, get much practice at all, I think they will play. in the more I, look at this game, the more that I've been going through the numbers in the game prep feeling more and more optimistic. That this is a game that Broncos can win when we looked at this on the schedule originally, we chalked it up as an L.. But. Now, I'm thinking they got they got a much better shot not only at being competitive but maybe went into game we I think at least once Cam Newton showed up. Jarrett's Brian Hoyer which is very well what it could be. An may likely be Sunday you were I, think a little more optimistic than when it was going to to New England to play Tom Brady and Bill Belichick if there's one team though that is equipped for handling. Adversity just changes to their routine I. Think it's the Patriots because of how prepared bill checks teams always are, and then I remember our pouch at Brown telling me that it was only place in. He obviously played a bunch of years in Seattle and Pittsburgh but talking to other people around the league that they would routinely tear up game plans on Saturday and totally reworked what they were planning to do on either side of. The ball in their approach for the Sunday game whereas most teams put in the game plan Monday night with the coaches and then start tweeting Tuesday and and implemented to the players Wednesday. So I understand that you need to get on the field just because I think you need get on the field especially with CAM missing last game, but there's a team that can I think overcome it it feels like it's the patriots historically. Yeah. No I agree with you. To stay the longevity, the continuity, the stability that there the system, of course. Yeah. If there was one team. That kid adjust on the fly say Friday or Saturday it would be the Patriots but I I still think that does give the broncos warp and edge than they had. All, going on. And who's going to be the quarterback Hoyer stood Newton prepare for Cam Newton and then you know whatever happens you take what What gets thrown at you. Are you saw hoyer stem them. The other night, we all watch that gave and neither one of them. Looks too good. You can probably hear some baby screaming in the back they're excited about the broncos. I got my kids visiting from Arizona. Too little babies a one and a two year old along with nine my daughter's in my my son also. Yeah now, I lost my train of so you think the Patriots. Yeah, so You gotTa feel pretty good about your chances they fangio in his defensive mind against Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham. Cam Newton is going to be he's going to be a handful. There's no doubt about it. Even without any practice he doesn't take any snaps all week. You know he he's always a challenge. I'm really looking forward to the game I. Really Hope they play it I. Hope New. England only has the one. The one a player and covert protocol, and we can play it on Sunday. Yeah. Not One play of course it. Stefan Gilmore nobody in broncos country's going to lose any sleep or shed a tear for them losing their best defensive player the reigning defensive player of the year because the broncos have their to pro bowl defensive players sitting on the sideline for the year right now and in Von Miller Durell Casey plus all the. Injuries, we spend the rest of the podcasts talking injury. So if there without a couple of guys, even if those guys are Cam Newton and Stefan, Gilmore nobody around here is GonNa feel sorry for for the Patriots you know my partner Dave Logan says that all the time we sit there nobody cares how many injuries you have. If you're on your number two or number three, quarterback nobody cares this is the national football league. And you deal with it next guy up mentality. and. You play the game you you know you give one hundred percent with the guys you got to play. Well. So when you look at what the Broncos are going to throw out there. Brett. Ribbon is preparing to start. He told us out Wednesday he talked to you and Dave I believe on Monday and then he also acknowledged that if drew locks ready to go, he's GonNa do all he can to support them. These guys really are close I. Think what Brett Ribbon showed us last week and you and I talked about this is that he really does have the chance to be that Gary Kubiak and there's a chance to you know to locks elway that he's here for a lot of years and the broncos quit looking at other veteran backups that they trust Brett rippin. But we did. See. Then I put a little bit the only video that we could actually take between the quarterbacks were throwing during special teams, and then when we were shoot shooting for one minute and they went and did more individual work was drew lock letting it rip. So vix that he's not going to put him out there if doesn't feel like he's healthy enough but I guess when you saw what Rippin did tell me what you thought of his performance in a how you feel about the idea of him going in there and the excitement of the possibility of drew lock could be back as early as Sunday. Team there's no doubt about it It's it's his job to lose I think you know we'll see how things look at the end of the season but they they certainly believe that drew lock is the guy and Brett ripping is acknowledged that you've got to really like what you saw in Brett ripping and both the Games he played. And then he first started the national football league. He gets a win on the road in a short week. He probably didn't hardly get any snaps that all week you know we didn't have any when when they put him in. For driscoll. And then. They go in that Short Week and they probably did a walk through and that's about it. So He's getting a full week of practice this week and I think that will benefit that kid if you heard him on a radio show on. Koa. You gotta be. Impressed with. Him. He sounds he sounds way beyond his years and experience in the NFL. You could tell a really smart kid. He's played a lot of football. He's won a lot of games. The kid was cool. He was calm. He was confident. He made some good decisions along with some really bad ones. and. He'd be the first to acknowledge that. But that's pretty typical of a young quarterback making his first start the NFL but he did make throws. You know we we thought that what you needed to do is run the ball with Melvin Gordon and they did and have ripping managed to the game and make us throw or two when you need them. That's pretty much what he did. You know he those two picks there in the second half Made it a little scary at the end of the game. They ended up pulling it out, and this is a young team that is learning how to win close games they've been nothing. But Losing Games at the end here the last year and a half or so So it was good to see them pull one out especially on the road gives everybody a lot of confidence in interesting drew lock is ripping the ball in practice. I think that's a really good sign I. Don't think we'll see him on Sunday I. Think you WanNa make sure he is a hundred percent sound ready to go i. don't think there's any reasons to take chant chances with your your future quarterbacks, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see him. After the New England game against up. MIAMI. I guess the only just playing devil's advocate because I was having this conversation with one of the nine news camera guys today at practice while we weren't allowed to shoot drew throwing the ball heart is they like I said Vic in Vic? said he will he wants to see how he responds. But let's say he feels okay and over the next couple of days, he just keeps feeling better and they do an examination and it feels fine. Then I think that you at least have to strongly consider it now they may cure err on the side of caution. So I guess we'll see how the how the week plays out. I if I don't think I, have for you because I know you gotta run and chase after those grandkids is what did you have in the game that you weren't able to drop into the broadcast and a note on Sam Darnold? Sam darnold grandfather was it was there anything else that or something? They got a big laugh? I'm trying to remember there weren't big laughs. I feel like we got in the steelers game with the references to the to the cardboard cutouts because. You want to jokes work in every city. That's like Comedians will tell the same joke in Cleveland and Detroit and Denver, but it's your it's also kind of the same audience. I was able to get a good laugh not only out of Dave Logan but our entire crew. During my hot take segment all off other five people in the booth cracked up I was talking about Brett rippin and that when Brett rippin was a little kid, he had a poster above his bed that said NFL or bust I had that same poster above my head. It's good to see that the dreams do come true for some people. It was like Rick. You've had a great career and radio, but it was good to get to get all the guys laugh in the Busse. It's hard to get day Larry. The broadcast because he's so focused on doing his thing I did have a note about Sam Darnold that I was never able to eat in and this is this is not a joke. This is for real. His grandfather. Was the Mara. Man. You know his grandfather, you know their gender of Southern California family. So his grandfather in his grandfather's name Dick Hammer. So. was named Dick Hammer. Dick Hammer is his grandfather's name. Yeah and which is a very macho name. I think can. It seems like you know really appropriate name for the Marlboro man? And you can. You can look that up. This is a this is a fact. But I never got a chance to to work it into the game. It's kind of the names kind of a show stopper. You gotTa work that in at just the right time well, luckily. Just comes to a screeching halt Donald. Young enough that you'll be able to I think at some point because the Broncos are gonNA play jets again or if they end up with one of the top picks and move darnold then maybe we'd see them even more potentially who knows but I'm glad you got to drop that in here. Now I'm glad you're able to you some time ago run and take care those grandkids and fingers crossed. You GOTTA game to call on Sunday if there is a game. Do. You want to give me not a score prediction, but you said you like the broncos chances as it early. Chances, it's too early in the week. I think the chances are improving by the day. In with the Patriots. Uninsured Week on the road plan the best team. In the NFL losing. I I think. That gives them a good chance right there. Another facilities closed. They're they're not practicing right now. by the day, the broncos chances are improving I think there's a possibility it could be a game that they could go in and steal. Feeling pretty good about themselves now. With, a with ten days of rest in preparation to get to play against the Patriots and one other thing that fans should keep in mind at the broncos record is one and three, and you are what your record says you are. But the three losses. The combined record at the three teams they lost to nine and one. So that was a pretty rough schedule that they started the season with it's GonNa get easier here the next four games. So broncos got a chance to climb back well, especially if Stefan Gilmore gave Patrick Mahomes Corona Virus Post game then may end up seeing Chad henny against the Broncos and a couple of weeks after the dolphins game who knows never know man All right rick I appreciate it to enjoy. We were even talking about that. Yeah it's crazy. Enjoy your grandkids and We'll catch you next week. Thanks so much. Okay. Became my pleasure. Thanks. Thanks as always Rick Lewis make sure your follow him on twitter and instagram at one Rick Lewis. He's really good follow and throws out a lot thoughtful stuff to get you the get you thinking.

November 23 Hour 2 Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos | Clark Johnson of Preps Radio

"Second and final. Monday's edition of the whole show. Rock and enroll in here to start us off this hour. Zak stevens our broncos insider from. Dnv are broncos. and zack. Well though the broncos found a way to get it done man it was a this game had a lot of intrigue. We saw some really rough spots from drew. Lock to begin with but rounded out for a nice game. That defense came up with big plays. They were running all over the place. This is how. I think broncos country really thought they. This is what they thought they'd see throughout most of the year. You're exactly right. Brady in in great talking to you today and pictures exactly how john elway built this team. It was with a great defense with the defensive minded head coach where they could shut down teams with a running game with two proble running backs. Both of them almost combined for two hundred yards. And then you have the young quarterback who's not asked to do too much at all drew lock with a game manager after that first interception and you know what he did a darn good job. Managing the game. After that first interception he of course started for six with an interception not ideal at all but then he turned around and went eighteen for twenty four for two hundred and seventy yards. Of course if you take away that last Throw up that. He got sixty one yards on. He still had over two hundred yards the ultimate game manager. And you know what. That's how you win with a young quarterback and that's how you don't ask them to do too much when you're able to run for almost two hundred yards on the ground you it over six an interception. It was feeling exactly like the last few weeks. Drew lock broncos country was ready to you know maybe the next series you're even wondering does denver consider bright ripping at some point. Or do they just let this thing fall through. What's going to happen here. But i gotta tell you all the stuff that drew lock we. We've we've been pretty aggressively. The last four weeks to come back from that. Might be more admirable than if he would just started it off great and had a nice game throughout. Because a lot of quarterbacks in that situation almost almost done you know and so drew lock finding a way to to make this a positive game. I mean that says a lot about this young guy it really does a and it speaks to a lot of people see his confident but it speaks that he is able to bounce back and his resilient because he was sitting on five interceptions in just over four quarters after he threw that pick in the first quarter he could have easily crumbled but instead he bounces back as a solid performance and it wasn't just the interception that he had the broncos on the next drive go three and out and then on the next drive their third possession of the broncos have one total yards be when they're sitting on their third possession at third and ten one total yards of offense and drew lock has the same number of interception as the broncos. Do offense yard. I think that third down completion on third and ten decay. j. hamblur in the middle of the field was honestly to play the game. For the broncos outside of justice interception that jumpstarted them and then later that drive the broncos had back to back fall starts and that was just typical of the broncos often. But what's been typical of the broncos. Offense is they have not been able to overcome those false starts. Drew lock is able to scramble for fourteen on third and thirteen to pick that up so she that drive so big for him. And so big for the broncos offense because then they weren't able to then they were able to avoid a big time deficit and the broncos were able to stick with the ground game where you had. Thirty one combined carries for phil and melvin. And that's the formula for denver. Zack were on the exact same page. Man that caja handler third-down reception when it felt like everything was still going south. This broncos defense is playing well but how long can they mentally hold up to this. Three an out interceptions. All that cage handler gets the key third down. I'm i'm lovin k. j. Jerry jeudy i know. He's the flashy one he gets a lot. More of the press. But k j just seems like a sound player economize eddie royal back win that that i hear so just just really reliable and gonna pick up first downs for you but drew lock. We talked about a four game. Stint starting with the chargers. Game going into the falcons raiders. As dolphins game. We force games was going to tell us a lot about drew. Lock de are we back where we started. We learn that much about drew because he had some bad moments. But it's really good ones too. Yeah he did you know what if he turns out to be a success by the end of the season. And he's the broncos starting quarterback in two thousand twenty one. We'll say what we learned from. These four games was resilient and just the mental toughness that he has in the broncos belief in him now if he doesn't turn onto success in the final six games. Then you'll point back and say well. Yeah he was throwing interceptions left and right and only really produced in the fourth quarter of those two games but it wasn't just the resilience of yesterday. It was a resilient bouncing back from a foreigner perception game leading his team to victory as they were underdogs this past week and it was also the resilience in those chargers. Games in falcons games where he has three real bad quarters in both of those games and then came out and had it really good fourth-quarter so unfortunately brady like both thought we. We thought we would know a lot. More right now but you know we have six games to figure it out and the key for drew is going to be continuing to improve every single week. Now it may be baby steps like it was yesterday But if we continue to see that improvement then we're going to say okay. Drew drew how to a big time rough spot but he was able to overcome that. And the broncos going to feel comfortable going going into twenty twenty one with him as their quarterback but we need to continue to see those steps. We're talking to zach stevens from denver. Broncos this was maybe the first game and it could be missing a game or or two that. This was the first game i felt. Like the broncos were playing to what their identities should be. Tim patrick had a nice game. Noah fant had a nice game but none of them were getting nine ten receptions right it's spread out you're utilizing your tight end game. You're running the ball. You ran it for what. Thirty thirty one carries between lindsay and gordon. They ran it well. You're playing great defense. Drew lock not forced to do anything too crazy. This to me feels like what this identity should be all about absolutely and not only was the ground game working but then it opened up everything for drew lock. The play action was successful. The one play. They ran out of the pistol where where he gave the play. Fake it brought the linebackers up because they had to commit to the run and that opened up a huge space for drew a to throw into the middle of the field. Ten patrick those things are exactly what this offense is meant for and drew lock it. He dropped back to pass thirty one times. And the broncos ran the ball thirty two times. That is the balance that this team is looking for. And as vic fangio's today it was a successful balance and that's exactly what this team was designed for. It's so nice when it works that way. And i know it's not always as easy as just saying. Oh you got to run the ball more but you know the first few carries ac. I think it would fill. They weren't great. I mean the first few carries it looked like more of the same from last week but the difference was it seemed like pat. Shurmur stay dedicated to the run. I know drew lock. Loosen it up a little bit with that. Nice third down conversion to caja hamler but they kept this miami dolphins defense kind of bend but don't break defense a decent defensive the last few weeks anyway. They stayed consistent. They stay dedicated to that. Run game and to me. That was that was ultimately the difference maker with this offense defensively. It was great but that was the difference maker. You know in the past few weeks. We've seen pat shurmur. Treat the running game kinda like the deep ball. He throws it a couple of times doesn't work and then you say okay. Well that's kind of a shot that take them. We didn't hit it so we're just going to be done with that for the day. What are you can't do that with the running game and so you know what this game. You're absolutely right. Those first three drives were not pretty. When the broncos ran the ball one yard on the first On the first beginning of the first three possessions and pat shurmur stuck with it. He's ever going to keep trying this and then look what happened. Both of your running backs average over five yards per carry. They both break runs of twenty plus yards. It's not always going to be pretty but when you're when you're stopped for one yard no yards regardless of the running back is you gotta keep going back to them. And this balance. That he found between. Melvin gordon phillip. Lindsay is exactly what john wanted. I know broncos fans especially people in colorado are going to want phillip lindsay. Get thirty touches a game. That's never to happen. But what is realistic. Is melvin gordon and phillip. Lindsay combining for thirty carries a game. Exactly what we saw yesterday. Sixteen for fill. fifteen for. Melvin gordon and melvin. Had a terrible fumble. Y- you can't discount that. But man did he look good. He was having the best game of his career with the broncos until that last fumble on broncos twitter and zack. You're seeing about. Melvin gordon and the fumble that to me i know it could be could have been costly right. Dolphins could have went down. Scored i think. Melvin gordon owes justin simmons a donut or something that was a fumble. That was such an amazing run that he had. There's he had no business getting out of that first three yards. It was an amazing run. Is that one that you. You've you've followed a lot of games closely that one where you look at and say man. It's kinda hard to fault him. There he was busted like five six tackles on that run. Yeah it was a beast mode type run. And what doesn't help is that. Phillip lindsay is in town but the guy that everyone loves that is feel disrespected. And also lindy's guy that has never fumbled and his career. With the broncos and melvin now has four fumbles on the season so that's just always that's just a hot button for broncos fan day. It's going to hit them any time. But also you know you have drew locks interception. The multiple players made made mistakes in this game. But it's when it's melvin gordon compared to phillip lindsay. That is always going to be blown up. You're right outside of that. He had a fantastic game. He had the broncos only two touchdowns which i think a lot of people that like to bash on him. Don't point out as well which is only fair to point out. There were nice runs to. I mean again. I don't wanna take waste any thing away from this offensive line. I coach and i was pushing people around garrett bowles man i mean he is. I think he's earning back. Some trust every single game and that was fun to watch. That offensive line was moving around. But melvin gordon. I felt like was finding the lanes better than maybe. I've seen him do all season. Yeah and it wasn't just that the broncos ran the ball it's how they ran it. I mean we all love seeing garrett bowles go from the left tackle position all the way around the right tackle to just destroy and bulldoze players as the players said after the game you love the bulls on the movie luxy and rising are on the move probably his best game and then austin schloffmans comes in for graham glasgow. Who was a little banged up at the end of the game and you don't even realize there. He plays so well and credit to lloyd cushenberry because he has struggled a lot this season but vic fangio says he gets better and better every single week. And it's it's baby steps for for him and you know that that's kind of how i classified drew. Lock game i. It's just a baby step and it doesn't have to be a huge step for this team and these players on offense every single week. That's unrealistic to expect. What you need is just everyone to continue to get better. These remaining six games and then the broncos will have a promising off going into the offseason. We're talking to zach stevens of. Dnv are broncos are. We haven't even touched the defensive side they gave up thirteen. In one of those touchdowns was was a crazy interception by drew lock ultimately miami converted later on without the stars anyway. You're so banged up there. You only allow fifty six yards you. You're getting after two. You had six sacks in this game obviously the big interception simmons should have had two interceptions but aj boy a strange defense pass interference call their talk to us about this defenseman. They were making plays alexander. Johnson is hitting people in the mouth. Me read is all over the place. Obviously bryce callahan. Playing great chubb was he got a sack. I mean this is one of those excellent performances by denver defense. It really was. It was incredible. They were great against the the past. They were great against the run. They turn the ball over. And you're right drew. Lock doesn't throw that touchdown or that interception. That set up the easy touchdown for the dolphins. Lebron broncos very well may not give up a touchdown in this game hold the dolphin under T digit points and this was adult team under two. That was averaging over thirty points per game since he came in and the past three games and they made to a look uncomfortable all game and that's something that is not easy to do because two of is tested. He's been tested before he came in the nfl and he looked cool and his first three games in the nfl and they made him look like a completely different quarterback they got him benched for ryan fitzpatrick after the game brian flores that it was not due to injury why tool was taken out. They just needed something else on offense because of how good the broncos defense was and brady said it what's incredible about it is they are dealing with their entire backup defensive line and they were still able to get six sacks onto a vic credit credit to vic fangio and pat shurmur in this game And on the defensive side vic fangio was not afraid to bring pressure and win. They brought pressure to just couldn't do anything in the game. In the first half every time vic fangio rock crusher to a didn't have a single completion so just credit to victory call and a good game and then the defense getting after him from the name bradley. Chubb having us actor sean williams having two sacks demarcus walker getting in there on one and then maliki remand man. Does he looked good one and a half sacks for him on the day he he is really stepping up this year. So what was it with. You talked about it on friday. You said hey denver you gotta go all out man. Put some pressure on the sky. He ended the day. Eleven for twenty eighty three yards a touchdown then he gets pulled. It was it. The knee was it. They just you know they they. He wasn't getting anything done or was it a combination of the two. Have you heard anything about him. Going forward For next weekend. Yeah we'll brian flores. After the game said that It was not injury related. Now would have been the easiest thing for brian. Florez to say. Even if it wasn't actually injury related he could. He could have given that excuse to then put him back out there this week but he did not give him that excuse. O'brien floor is going with the tough love treatment there for two and of course. Fitzpatrick came in And broncos playing a little bit more of a prevent defense not a full prevent defense and they did not bliss. Patrick and fitzpatrick had a lot. More success than. Yeah if it's bad almost fits magic. Justin statements comes up with the pig. All right so i gotta ask you. This are our power to play sports. Poll question zach. I wanted to get your thoughts. We're playing the hypothetical game. If you could only sign one of these guys to a long term deal justin simmons garrett bowles phillip lindsay all controversial. Kind of right. I mean as far as how they've been treated or how they played. Which one would you pick. Man this is. This is so tough. If it's only one. I think this is crazy. I think you gotta go garrett bowles you have had problems on the offensive line for so long. You finally found your left tackle. You can't let him walk. And people would probably say well justice in inside the game winning interception and and i think he should sign justin simmons as well. I think that's important to say but vic fangio throughout his career has had a lot of success getting a lot more play out of safeties that he finds so can he come and find the next justice. maybe not. Maybe you're not talking about one of the best eighties in the nfl. But he can find an average safety and make them good. You keep cream jackson around here. And then phillip lindsay The broncos have not showed him love in terms of a contract. I i don't think that they're going to turn around and show him a ton of love and then running backs are also an easier position to replace at a cheaper cost so in your mind zach of those three guys. Yeah it's possible you could see garrett justin but the idea of all three of them is that. Is that realistic anymore. Yeah it is realistic. Because you do have Philip under control through next year being a restricted free agent. So those guys could be all under control for for a while. Still after this year was going to be interesting as you have to decide. Who are you franchise tagging. Are you franchise justin sym- for a second straight year in his price tag. Goes up twenty percent or are you franchise tagging garrett bowles and whoever you don't get done then you're trying to work out a long term deal with the other one and they're both going to want to be paid Like the top of their position in both of those positions you know going for fifteen to twenty million dollars in safety and left tackle respectively. And then so you do by yourself. A little bit of time with phil is he is he can be back for around three or four million next year It'll be interesting. Zac appreciate you man. I don't even feel like we covered half of it but we got through a lot Zach what he work force that we can check out a dvr broncos alamance seeing how the broncos are going to go up against the saints this coming week because of course tastes them. Hell what an interesting experience -ment experiment they have going on there And just how. The broncos matchup became. Hey broncos get another win and they're going into kansas city in two weeks with a chance to go six and six that would be fun so Covid break down. Everything about taste helen. How the broncos attack. I'll look forward to a man zack. Always appreciate you. Break it down for us.

Joining me in studio are auto collision special studio clark. Johnson of preps radio man. Clark let me just say this i do. We have a big one coming up on saturday here on thirteen. Ten k of k. a. It's going to be a huge weekend for us. But resurrection christian and eaten will be going at it absolutely one of the biggest match ups we've had in a long time out here and now both of these teams just one game away from getting to the finals. And boy you look at it on paper and say rest christian. Probably the favorite here. But i don't know hold your horses. Eat and got a huge win. They were the only one really that had to go on the road of the teams that we follow out here and they went all the way to pagosa springs. And just repeat them. Forty one to seven. I picked that. By the way that i will not. But i said they will blow us and they will school them and sold it so that okay. Eating scores forty points against Pagosa springs resurrection. Kristen finally gave up a point. They just a safety. the they gave up to scores. And okay all right a little bit more gave fourteen You expect to that in the playoffs to fourteen. I think that was the final. They they the first touchdown they gave up was a a snap that the defense for the other team at a scoop and score. So that's not against your own and that's just one of the other one that gave up was when they had twos in late in the game so quite frankly the The one the number one says doesn't really feel like a scores put on them. But do you think changes over the weekend. This is way far and away the best team they will played all year. No doubt about it Reds are tough ethan. Flora's the kiddo. That was out one of the many that were out the final regular season game for eton against platte valley when platte valley went over there and won all. He does come back. Come back to this game here. In twenty one yards and three rushing touchdowns so scott agreeable was terrific hundred and twenty six yards. Passing with a touchdown. Eighty four yards rushing with a touchdown so they look great. If they have their full contingent this game end eaten res- christian and eaten is going to be one of the best games you could imagine how b twelve thirty pregame. One o'clock kick-off here on thirteen ten. Kfi and immediately following your game. Assuming i'm not. I'm not trying to get ahead of myself but assuming you see winds on friday. Our first unc. Men's basketball game. We'll be friday at three. Assuming they win. They'll play immediately after that game in that tournament in kansas city. Yeah we'll We'll get the people. Let them know during our broadcast taste. Stick around and and get to that. Unc basketball game. Jeff smiley and company. Nasty steve smiley wyoming gets okay. There new. i'd go there. You mixed them it. It happens both of those guys. So i tried to. I think it's going to be a lot of basketball in the area. A lot of great football. I'm excited for it. How about roosevelt kicking the game winning field goal. That doesn't happen a whole heck of a lot in high school football side of things but a game winning field goal in the final moments in fact. Yeah with two seconds to go while drove all the not very often but this was called bracken sawyer. Their their kicker terrific kicker fort. Morgan though against the one seed roosevelt. The eighth seed against the one for gets the lead with two minutes left. Misses the extra point or as long sixteen fourteen. Lead roosevelt goes the length of the field. And the on the last play the ball game reconciler knocks it through seventeen. Sixteen but a crazy with how you get there you know. Just gotta get there move onto the next round. That's all you can do take on south at home in johnstown. One o'clock on saturday. Public south is the foresee got through because meade went kovic and didn't play that opening your eye forfeit so So yeah lane washing or steam. Now just one one win away from going down and joining us for a wonderful trip to blow coming up. Yeah it's going to be intense right. You're guaranteed to have at least one nine on championship guaranteed. Two o'clock a week from saturday will be down in that first week for saturday in december will be down in pablo for the to a championship. Either res- or eaten taking on either delta or lamar lamar. Another team in mind. Kind of my neck of the woods. Loveland nails down a semi-final berth defense. Coming up big for them over broomfield twenty eight to seven. Yeah that was close. Great always great matchup with love broomfield. We had it friday. Night and seven seven ballgame. Broomfield is is looking like they're going to score. Take the lead late third quarter that cough it up on the five yard line and roosevelt takes over. They go ninety five yards score touchdown to take the lead. Come with a pick six on the next series to take a twenty one seven lead. They get another pick and the guy goes to the one. Almost scored To add to pick six late in the game but what was the seven seven game after three. Twenty eight seven four for loveland. It somehow sometimes goes like that close game can turn into You know a lopsided score quickly Want to know too for folks starting on monday. You're switching gears just like that and listen. We don't know exactly what's going to happen with high school basketball just yet as of right now. It's go january fourth starting but we're going to put together a thirteen days. Thirteen teams regardless. We're going to hear from the coaches and players. We do training camp coverage now for as many teams as we possibly can Either way it's great to catch up with us coaches and players because the season might be pushed a month who knows But as of right now january fourth is tipped off so thirteen days. Thirteen teams hoops edition presented by quality while on pump starts on monday this coming monday absolutely so we'll get that scheduled for on the website or soon on the facebook page as well so hold tight for that. We'll get it to you but football wise. I just wanted to say hats off to the platte valley bronco players. They had sixteen players out due to covid this this past weekend and delta kinda beat him up but They tried hard and they had a great season and they're always good to us so Way to go. Bali i mean. At least they showed up. They could afford the game. They didn't do it. So hats off to troy hopping and company and hats off to cheyenne wells. How about this didn't somebody. I know they have a billboard up of me somewhere. They don't install billboards there so grandma one. They had a like the varsity varsity blues coach. Yeah just the statue of kilmer. Yes it's more of a scarecrow that my grandma just pasted a picture of my face to and she has to go out and sneak out and do that every every night but yes well. My dad's my dad. Of course we're getting together this week and He's going to head back. Sheinwald stratton liberty. back in. My day was just stratton but liberty had to join forces you know. They're getting out freeman football. They're going to have to go to three one on one on one football which i think would be highly entertaining up so we used to play that my front yard. I think it's great. I think it'd be great. see big weekend for you clark. I'm excited about it. What do we perhaps mid week. This week wednesday. We're yeah we're both jeff van winkle the head football coach at res- and Jeff zach lemon from eaton on the program so the ufc prefight when those two guys. I asked.

I'm looking forward to a big one this weekend this saturday. Thank you very all right. Thirty minutes after the hour. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash pure mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi hey it's andrew bogusch from cbs sports radio. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi k. A fresco painter south plaque in a free mini cooler. Just by calling them. Just call them telling you heard about here on the whole show. It's a free mini cooler and a free painting quote while you're at nine seven four one four forty one thirty one i events text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six our power to play sports poll question of the day. This is an interesting one. Go to the whole show dot com to vote. But if you could only choose one. Which player would you sign to a long term deal justin simmons garrett bowles or phillip lindsay forty-one percent simmons but the surprise to me. Is ball's coming at thirty. Three percent. Lindsay's at twenty five percent. Now when you look at how much you're gonna have to pay these guys You know where do you go. The highest paid tackles in the. Nfl are twenty boxy area of of green. Bay's making twenty three twenty. Three million laremy tunsil at twenty two million. Then you go down to the second tier sixteen million. So you're you're going to have to shell out some dollars that's for sure wh- how much how much is that. Going to be ultimately bowls is probably gonna be more in the fifteen eighteen million dollars suddenly. That's what having a great season is to you. John elway sat down with your bowl. Say this is it essentially put shut up and here. He is so i mean. We can complain about away all day long but hiring mike month check and sticking it out with garrett bowles this year might look like a victory for who hasn't had many of these now residing might who knows. Is he going to give the broncos some kind of a discount after he was almost ran out of town here or is it the true overcoming adversity. This is what sports is all about. It's not hate it's hating. Sports drew lock. It's not criticism criticism and sports. It's not real life. We don't hate you your football player. Well if you do hate them outside of that just be if you actually have real hate. Harbored inside of them. Because melvin gordon. Fumbles that kind of stuff. Then you have issues right. It's it's sports. Hates different so probably going to give garrett bowles fifteen twenty million dollars how much is how much is the top safety going to get paid. I mean buddha bakers at fourteen point. Seven five you have some high paid safeties in the nfl. Kevin baird fourteen point one. I use a fourteen. So is you know that's kind of what we talked about with justin simmons. He's going to be fourteen sixteen million dollars and then phillip lindsay is going to be closer to the Sixty eight six to eight million. So it's not gonna get cheap christian. Mccaffrey is sixteen million dollars. So that's the those are the top tier guys is not going to touch that. But where's he going to be happy. Derrick henry at twelve five okay. He's not in that territory yet. He's not yet. i dunno. Melvin gordon eight million catholic territory. That's where you're looking because lindsay is going to look at while you're pay him eight. You're not gonna pay me the same or maybe a little more so go vote. That's at the whole show dot com. I wanna take this away ticks dixon. You're always raining on the parade man. There was raining on the parade. How tough is it being a bronco fan when you get excited about twenty points and start saying things like this is what it's supposed to look like i mean one yard away from it being twenty seven points. It makes feel any better dixon. This is what it's supposed to look like. This is what exactly what is supposed to look like. You want a tough defense top run game and you win. You win ballgames. Twenty twenty seven points. Melvin gordon was a yard away from scoring twenty seven points. I know brady didn't cow because it didn't go in a yard away though that's the idea and it's that's what it is. Twenty twenty. seven points is what you're expecting from this offense and defensively you're expecting whole teams below seventeen. That's where you are. So i mean you can say it's not listen. It's not kansas city. I get that and it and it won't be kansas city denver's building differently. And right now yeah. Kansas city's looks like the sexier pick. But we shall see i for one thing. Las vegas is just above average and the raiders whipped up denver broncos having proven to be average this season too many inconsistencies but when their head coaching staff runs what they're supposed to do run the ball thirty plus times. They should win a few more games. That's what i that's. Why predicted eleven and the schedule station have several more victories under their belt but i do believe coaching his cost them. And that's terrifying thing. I forty nine minutes after the hour. Colefax we'll take a short break. We'll wrap up the show. Talk more broncos dolphins tomorrow. We'll get to more of that. We'll get to way more in the nuggets side. We'll try to get chris dempsey lined up this whole show powered by energy. We'll be right back inside. The air's dang presented by christmas agency allstate insurance tuesday nights northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. a.

E CPI University knows nursing get started today at e CPI Dot Edu. There will be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily pot jest with Brandon Krisztal. Want everything. I want all the meatballs Apostol. Happy Tuesday, broncos country. Hope you're starting to climb out of that funk, but it is a Malays across all of the Rocky Mountain region I think right now because of the injury news reported the Portland Sutton injury yesterday tornado torn MC l. done for the year that was confirmed by VIC Fangio also put the Dream Jones news out there is about he was going to be out for about four weeks. Fangio confirming reports that we already suspected about drew lock shoulder turns out. It's a bruise not a sprain necessarily and he's GonNa be out anywhere from three to five weeks. In fact, I let you hear a little bit from Vic Fangio's he explain what was going on with all the injuries. There's nothing structurally wrong with his shoulder you've gotTA. Bad Rouge there you know when a true throwing shoulder. Time to heal it's gotTA calmed down. Your strength back to were. Fully has an economic berate. Honor at one hundred, percent eight has more detail here as to what exactly is going on with drew lock shoulder. Yeah. There's nothing structurally wrong with the shoulder Bad Bruise there. You know when a true throwing shoulder. It's going to take time to heal. It's gotTa calm down. Strength Back to tour. Fully. Has It an economic rate. On a one, hundred percent, one other injury, no devante hairs dealing with a hamstring injury. So he could be out a couple of weeks. So you look at what the Broncos are going to quarterback while it's all about Jeff Driscoll vicks thought he played pretty well, all things considered and I'd have to agree with that. When you look at the numbers ends up putting up the two touchdowns, two, hundred, fifty, six yards the one pick wasn't really his fault. Of course, being more costly with Cortlandt Sutton done for the year vic also said, they wouldn't add any receivers already a little heavy there with seven. So now though Kerry six, those will be. Led by Gerry Judy becomes your number one. This Caja Hamblur jumped passed him. Patrick has the number two. We'll see how much work does day Sean Hamilton. Get tyree Cleveland will now be up and then maybe you'll see stuff where you get Devan, deontay Spencer and Kgan Marlon together. So I'd I'd be down for that just from tribulation standpoint it seems like jets not only have to rely on those young guys, but also his tight end. So driscoll be your starter against the Bucks, br ribbons going to get promoted from the practice squad. I'm guessing they'll put drew lock on I R and just shut him down for the full three weeks. If he's a fast healer, maybe they'll regret that but you've got. The bucks coming up. Then add the jets quick turnaround, and then at the Patriots, St Lucie Drew Lock Against Cam Newton, but it feels maybe unrealistic. So they will. Make those adjustments will they add another player from the outside? It's Kinda. Slim pickings out there Vick was quick to say Colin Kaepernick and not been in their discussions. Blake. Bortles is kind of the only name that's out there. Would you WANNA come here to potentially start for a few games and then yield his starting gig to drew lock probably not you could sign a playoff practice squad they have to agree to come here. So Josh mccown certainly wouldn't would trevor Simian maybe, but he's probably happier being in Tennessee right now. At least knowing that teams trajectory is certainly headed up in the short term more. So than the Broncos, here's Vic Fangio yesterday. This final thing we'll play from VIC. On where the locker room is and I appreciate him being honest with us here the question was actually about just his feelings for everything going on because he's not one to really show emotion you'll hear rick. Lewis talk about that coming up in just a little bit but he was vic yesterday talking about how these injuries are affecting him disappointed for the players that have gotten. Injured you know. It's never good to get injured. On an individual personal basis. It does have a negative effect on the team on not going to insult anybody's intelligence that. Losing the type players and the amount of players that we've lost doesn't have some type of fact. But. We do have good players here in the building. Still they're gonNA come rally look at it as an opportunity for them to. Play good at what they got. Going to get them ready as a coaching staff to go out there and compete. Try and find a way to win these close games. One thing that is affecting vic it was reported last night that he along with Kyle Shanahan Pete Carroll are all going to be fined one hundred thousand dollars for not having their face coverings up on the NFL sideline and League is not messing around with that one hundred grand each of them while all these coaches can in theory afford that's a lot of money does go to nfl charities but feeling that will be certainly a reminder if not a. WAKEUP call to coaches and think they may have gotten away with it around the league or are thinking about slide in their mass down and I don't even know how it relates to assistant who can't afford that as easily. But three head coaches Victorian one of them along with Kyle and Pete Carroll there. So that does send a message. All right before we hear from Rick Lewis WanNa. Remind you about chug water chilly.

Color analyst for Your Denver Broncos and. Looking to start this conversation before we get hard core into the nuts and bolts of the broncos and where they're headed with these injuries. On how it was for both Dave and Rick to call the game from an empty empower field at Mile High and you're you'll hear him describe how everything kind of went down. So without further do the one and only Rick Lewis. Rick I imagine. You have done plenty of unique things here in twenty twenty and now add to the list calling football game. From an empty empower field at Mile High, not empty with no fans in the stands in a game in front, you empty all the way around with a game going on in Pittsburgh what was that like, and then we'll get into the specifics of the game and the mass unit that is the the broncos coming up. Tell me tell me what it was like being in their just you and Dave and your broadcast team in the booth and no one else. Yeah it was it was weird to say the least I've mentioned it during the pre-game that. Both Dave and I got into radio in the eighties Dave after playing in the National Football League in me. Taking a stab at trying to be an actor in Hollywood and This is Something that was completely new for both of us in something that I never thought. I. Would see in my career and you know it in a way. I was. A little bit excited about. What it might be like, and you know doing something different outside the box so I was trying to just embrace it. it was. It was a bigger challenge for Dave than it was for me. As the color commentator. Tough for play by play guy. To be able to do that off of monitors in really tough for our spotter. Jim Zayas he he's been spotting for Dave for. I don't know how long twenty plus years probably. And it was really tough for him because. What we had was. We had probably. Eight or ten monitors in this little booth with like walking into a best buy. These TV screens everywhere right and One of the monitors for each of us was an all twenty two, which is an NFL feed. It's a basically an aerial shot of all twenty, two players on the field. and. The other was a feet from the network. TV network that was doing the game, the one that everybody watched on TV. The problem with all twenty two is it was such a high shot. In grainy that. None of us could see numbers on the guys. And so that made it really tough for the spotter to to spot the game. which made it tougher. Dave. for. ME. I would just basically just glance at the all twenty two. once they got into their formation, just trying to basically just check in with the defense of coverage was. And then I would go and then look at the TV feed. Because you could see in oil way more detail right what was going on in the field? So for me the all twenty two. It didn't really. Factor in for me. One way or the other. Dave told me today that he watched doll twenty two most of the time. that. That's what he was watching. And our spotted couldn't watch it at all. So it was kind of a mixed bag with the all twenty two it was. It was weird to say the least. We're in Denver in a completely empty stadium we may have been. Maybe the only six people in the whole stadium, there was a guy who led us in. Somewhere. He probably someone had to stay there. There's probably a security guard, twenty, four hours. We want you to think that the stadium just empty I do know that there's one security guard around, but that could have been about it. Yeah was probably about it. The cardboard cutouts were there. They were leftover from the Monday night games. Yeah. I heard. You mentioned them. They're. Yeah. They were they look like they might have been hung over and they were they were real quiet again. We're watching this game from Pittsburgh. On. TV. You know and they kept showing this. I don't know if this was on the. On the main TV broadcast or not. But it seemed like every time they went to a break the feed would go to this aerial young of the stadium. Because there's no fans to show and instead of showing I don't know why they wouldn't just come back and show the sideline show. Big Ben Throwing look at his arm off an injury or keeps you on the broncos. Silence show Mike Tomlin show Vic Fangio show the coach and quarterback talking on the sideline. But they they did they kept coming back with the scene set aerial shot, of Pittsburgh, during the day. Yeah and I. Think I said Three Rivers Stadium at least twice in the broadcast because I'm looking at this you know during the break I'm looking at this aerial shot and I, thought it looked beautiful. Looking at these three rivers and we'd come back and then I would say three Rivers Stadium? Until agr producer wrote me a note put in front of me Heinz field. Right, yeah right. Prefer Stadium hasn't been around for twenty years. so but The whole thing was. It was confusing. What you didn't hear listening was the scrambling. That we were doing in the booth to try to make the broadcast sound smooth. So none of us was comfortable that we were scrambling the whole time and and so it would have been easy to make mistakes along the way I don't know other than me saying three rivers stadium if there were any real mistakes in the call or names or whatever but. We did the best we could and from what everybody told me, brandon? you wouldn't have known unless we would've said something. So that's a compliment and I appreciate that. I'm right there with everyone else I. I. listened to the entire game and I was listening to the to the pre-broadcast feed. 'cause I had the ability to do that with my setup at home and wanted to be a little ahead of it. It was a kind of a strange way to watch a game for me something that. I. Haven't done too much. There's been times where I've. The TV and radio broadcast because when we go through our website, you can do that 'cause it's a little behind her right on and you can kind of as your dvr but I was a full play ahead, which is kind of what it's like being at the game and that was sort of the way I approach. It was when you're at the game, the play happens, and then you look up at the Monitor when you're in the press box to see exactly how was blocked or or who missed a tackle or whatever, why did receive receiver catchable or DB makeup play. So that's the way I kind of approach, but I definitely missed a handful of plays because. I would react to something you guys said tweet it out and I did that a lot and so I was ahead of the TV feet tall second look at you. So there's probably plenty of people who thought I was at the game based on me Ryan o'halloran and Andrew. Mason. And Mark Kessler, the only three reporters I know for sure that were at the game and I was routinely ahead of them even though they were sitting in the stadium based on the call from you and Dave and some stuff you guys were able to to get out your broadcast. So anybody listening to the radio I guess would have likely been slightly ahead of the TV as well. But I'm glad we made you look like notre of exactly exactly. That's what I was going for. In fact I. Probably more actually. Yeah. I probably shouldn't have pulled the curtain back but yeah if you want to be ahead of the TV, here's the thing if someone's follow me on twitter. And you're falling for play by play it's maybe the worst way you can watch a game because there's even the little ESPN or Yahoo game crawl will have like. A fake bought, you know a a digital football that will show the kick off and then like move with each play and have the play written out. So the way I'm doing it is kind a silly antiquated way to do it but I was doing it for a handful of people might just be glancing to see I. Try to put context with not just what happened on the play Regardless it. It didn't sound like you guys weren't there and honestly the only time that I thought about it. We're win you mentioned it and it wasn't like you were beating us over the head saying after every play. There were even times where I could tell you weren't exactly sure who had made the play and you do a good job covering for Dave or David Give it an extra beat that he may not give during a game because like you said, Jim couldn't see it and he would still get it right because he'd glance at the TV feed or understand as the ball carrier stood up or the tackler got off the tackle especially on the defense side I. Think you guys nailed it considering that it's hard to see who it is and you were able to to from your vantage point. Determine who made the tackle from fifteen hundred miles away. Yeah, you know what? Really, what I did was just fall back on my experience I I've been in broadcasting almost forty years. So I just wanted to make the broadcast sound smooth. And professional and Kinda just fell back on that as a default and you know an and at that probably worked the best because there was a lot of confusion you know if you if you would have been in the booth and could see us after a play, you know looking at each other and pointing like. Who made the tackle? You know who? Who who made the catch there was times where we we really didn't know for a second or two, and it sounds like you picked up on that but you know and even Dave Logan who's been doing this forever. he's a he. He said this on the radio today on Koa to. He said man, we might as well just go. Be there you know be there for these road games, you know the broncos. Charters not available to us this year at least as of now. But he was saying you know we might as well. Just. Buy A ticket and go because I. It's. Especially when you've had as much experience as him calling games, the traditional way you get used to that and you're used to seeing everything and when you're Dave Logan, you could see everything Dave's got a brilliant football minded Dave knows. He knows he can tell you what plays coming just by the way they line up you know, and so we'll see how it goes the rest of the year, but I wouldn't be surprised if we at least go to. A couple of road games well, places like Kansas. City in Vegas or easier trips for sure getting to Pittsburgh not as easy New York, New England coming up maybe not as some of these games. But but the ones you know put nearby in quotes are probably a little easier and here's the thing too. Though like you said, even though I picked up on it I've been working in radio long enough and know the mechanics of calling a game and listening to the broadcast to know if you guys are split second later than you normally are. But for the majority of fans who aren't sinked up watching the game and listening. They're just in their car or they're just at work and they don't have access to TV. They wouldn't have known the extra breath. I could hear when you guys were trying to determine whether it was Justin Simmons or Kareem Jackson or Alexander Johnson Josie Joel and I realize those guys I'll look a little different but whomever the tackle with whether it's dream Aunt Joan's or shelby hair Joe Casey who are all built about the same in all wear numbers in the ninety s you couldn't tell I think the casual listener that enjoys listening to you and Dave every week you couldn't tell at all so Kudos to you even a struggle. All, right. We're glad to hear that about what happened on the field and then the subsequent injury report that came out today I guess let's start with the game before we spin it forward. When drew goes down and then subsequently Sutton Goes Down Jeff Driscoll. comes. In. I imagine you like most of Broncos cut your well, not only here goes this season. We've got no shot in this game and that's not what happened. You're you're you're right about that Jeff Driscoll. Is The guy who started eight games in his career record is one and seven. I thought going into the year that the broncos probably should have. Signed a ten year at that. That's out there guided. That's been around the game a long time. He could mentor drew lock a guy that's maybe even started. You know twenty twenty, five games in his ten year career. And just let that guy be. You know a guy there kit. Not, only mentor locked but if you had to use them the guy, you could win football games with I didn't think through Jeff Driscoll. WAS THAT GUY But after watching yesterday I was impressed I gotta tell you I was really I was really impressed with him be played pretty darn good. I think you can win some games with him. I don't know if he's a guy, you would want starting the whole season. As. Your guy like your number one but I think you can win some games with him now keep in mind. The broncos these first two games to play two of the best defense in the league. They play to the best teams in the League. And they were more than competitive. They should repeat Tennessee in in day could've beaten. Pittsburgh yesterday. So the broncos. They've got a competitive team. That is very resilient battling through all of these injuries which I have never seen. Injuries to key players like this in my entire life. Of Not only covering football playing football watching football. When you've got your number one quarterback down your number one wide receiver down your number one pass rusher down your number one corner down your know IRV. Be Running back and your number one right tackle who opted out because a cova to begin the year that's devastating. That's your six best guys at all your key positions. It's unbelievable. That they've been playing as well as they've been playing and looking back on the twenty twenty draft now with Portland Sutton off at the year. You gotTa feel pretty good that they took. Excuse me. They took judy an Hamblur. In Rounds One and two I know they. You know the so-called draft experts were hammered elway Broncos for taking handler in the second round after taking judy but. It sure worked out to be good. Didn't it well, and here's the other thing to everyone wants to jump on Garrett, Bowles he played well against Tennessee obviously part of the no sacks no penalties was rated as the highest broncos player in pro football focus. Then today even though he did have that hold yesterday, he was rated not only the best offensive lineman for the Broncos he was rated the sixth best offensive lineman tackle on those tackler alignment either way even if it's six best tackle out of thirty two tackles. Sixty four tackles he was rated as six best in the NFL yesterday despite that one hold that had everybody in broncos country groaning. So I'm right there with you I was excited about Jerry. Judy. Who was my favorite receiver in the draft and then when they drafted cage a lower, the idea that you'd go receiver receiver and try to match the chiefs. On. Offense as well as beat their brains and on defense with a better defense at the Broncos on paper did have going into the year. I think that it's a credit to elway and maybe even Vic Fangio who certainly is still going through growing pains as head coach he was not down when he talked to you guys this morning or when he talked in his press conference despite all these injuries. Yeah we'll Fangio seen everything I. Don't know if you've seen injuries to this extent, but he's been around the league. So long I vic Fangio, it doesn't get up or down. You Know Vic. Fangio is who we is I've I've never heard him. You know just real excited after a big win up. Never heard him really down after A. Crushing defeat. You know he's pretty much the same guy every time you talked to him he seems like he really likes Caja Handler. We asked him about him today and then I I believe later in this press conference, he was heaping praise on number thirteen in there's a lot to like watching him yesterday think about this guy's twenty one years old. Playing his first snap. As a professional football player, no preseason games hardly any training camp and the guy is a baller. Imagine next year when they have Hamblur Judy and Cortlandt Sutton plus no fant. You could see what they're what they're trying to do. You know they're trying to load up with speed and an explosive talent and they've got it. You know hopefully, these other guys can stay healthy the rest of the way hopefully we get drew locked back because even even if the season. Is. Pretty much gone by the time lock comes back. Say he comes back. In after the bye week in the broncos up one win or two wins you want to see this kid continue to develop you want him to keep getting Reps. And get better for the future. So I'm glad that he's not going to be out for the year. and I think they could win a game or two with Jeff Triskel. I wouldn't write him off yet. Well, we know that the bucks are still trying to completely find their stride. They didn't have Chris Godwin this week they're good on defense with guys like and Dominic ensue and. got a bunch of tacklers there. But they've got Tom Brady and Gronk and Mike Evans still trying to figure out the offense for nets probably going to be featured more. There's no guarantee that Tom Brady who has not always fared well a mile above sea level and he's come here is going to just walk all over the Broncos next week. Then you go to the jets were there a complete disaster right now and the Patriots looked good in a loss to Seattle they look pretty good last week but. I think the Broncos are going to continue to remain competitive and to the point you brought up. These are two of the better teams that they'll see an I'll make the case. These are the two best defenses you'll see till at least week twelve with the saints. If not all year, these might be the very best defense. They certainly terms of Pittsburgh's blitz package and. Pass Rush. So I understand why why folks and Broncos country bomb today when you hear Portland Sutton's down for the year when I reported that this morning as well as all the other injuries and lock out for anywhere from three to five or six if not longer, it's a bummer but it doesn't mean that the sky is falling and goes back. We've been saying it's a credit to elway and and Matt Russell that they've been able to rework this roster to keep them competitive or what we think will be competitive here in the coming weeks. Good Point I. Don't think anybody expected them to be a super bowl team this year. There were expectations that they could be a playoff team. And and that's still possible especially with the extra spot right nine and seven nine and seven tiebreakers I. It's too early to write that off in this new NFL. But what they're building there they're building for the long-term now. Now that they have their quarterback, they're trying to build around him and put an explosive offense around him. gave him a whole lot of weapons. They're all really young they're really talented. So you're still looking to the future for this football team and I know Denver. broncos, fans her very impatient. And I get it. You know they they've really been spoiled over the years. This franchise has set the bar really really high. And broncos fans. They don't know what it's like to lose like this. They don't know what it's like to not go to the playoffs. So there is that but I you're going to have to be patient with his team. There's a lot to like about this football team injuries can't be helped. You know. A. Death. A pretty big deal which we're going through right now but. I I on the bright side you're you're going to get a chance to see more of these younger guys. Get some snaps and reps and playing time and all the backups, a number twos and even number three's. You know guys that. Can really benefit from that and. I think this t I think they're really building something for the future idea. I never thought this year they would be super bowl I thought they could get in at nine, eight seven no. Get a playoff spot but next year I think is the year to watch. Assuming everybody's healthy then I think you can maybe raise your expectations for the football. Team. and. So kind of the point you were making it it'll be good whenever do does come back you certainly don't want to think that there's pressure off but you're gonNA play games that's kind of what he did at the end of the year was he just went out and played they were out of the playoff race and he was able to just kind of relaxed and I don't think that he was pressing or anything it was way too early to tell yesterday with just thirteen snaps and WanNa five and certainly steelers were getting after but. To your point with such a young core, these are going to come out and just continue to play and we saw it on defense to Michael. Jordan had a rough day by by any measure, but certainly for a rookie and he saying, he didn't play I don't think as much as maybe he anticipated play a fair amount he he didn't have his number call too often because they were. Media, but these guys are just gonNA be able to build on that and you're going to have to solid pieces of your defensive secondary for a long time that you're going to get some valuable experience as well as some of these young guys up front Mattel James going to be a big part of what they're doing now for the next couple of weeks because no dream Aunt Joan's and know demarcus Walker at least for a little bit. Yeah and they love him too I was Kinda surprised. That he's been inactive. I who games. They loved him in training camp and yet which I think is player. it's the toughest position to play in the National Football League specifies certainly on defense in probably the toughest to play coming out of college. At any position as cornerback in OJ media, I have been watching him pretty carefully and I like what I see from him. The kid the kid is he's a big corner he he's a hitter. He loves to come up there and make tackles and he's a good tackler. He's come close to making some really big plays. He got picked on yesterday Big Ben went after him as the weak link back there. and he he'll. He'll benefit from that that that touchdown pass. With with Ben. Rolling. To his right to thirty eight year old quarterback kind of lumbering along. You know bad knees and. Bad everything. And, then he just throws a bullet. To the Guy thank you. At the. Johnson a Bay wide receiver in Ocean Moody did not have bad coverage. Now, he almost got his hand on it. He did he did in at that's something that he'll learn from. You know he never had to play. quarterback like Ben Rothlisberger play against one like that in college or probably even a wide receiver like Johnson. You know. So these are all things that. Will benefit this kid I I expect. Big. Things from them. So it's good that he's getting all these reps now. All right before I let you run. A save your your thoughts on the bucks for the very anything else that we missed or something that jumped out from the broadcast other than the mechanics of it. I did appreciate like you touched on earlier referencing the. The cutouts in the stands and they'll be I guess w mixed in a they're gonNA have to move some of the cuts I gotta think some of those seats are really good seats for the fifty seven hundred fans. It'll be there this Sunday. But anything from the broadcast that you want to highlight. Again, I wish that we still had the the notes that you you and I would do years back that we would touch. After and you know. Anything that the made Dave laugh that I may have missed because I was doing something else or. They made yourself laugh. I. Can't think of anything yesterday. It was so weird. It was so different. In honestly, I was scrambling all game. You here. We all work PK so much to the point that. You know even during breaks you know were looking around and asking each okay who who made that tackle and who made that block and? Trying to just get caught up during the breaks and then you're right back on the on the air, the call in the next series and I. I. Just I don't remember if I said anything that may dave last. But I was trying to focus on just being smooth and seeing as much as I could offer these monitors to. You'd be able to give the listeners a good picture of what's really going on in the football game. I did note that are cardboard cutouts were really quiet staring at us. You know there is were just kind of earned in through us. They look right to you. You know those cardboard cutouts if don't look them right in the eye. because. They. They kept his hypnotic stare. And they basically are just looking right through they can see right to your soul. So I try not to look I'm right in the I just like I try to not to look at the. Big, blue for the airport. Yeah. Blue surprise I don't look I. Don't look at him directly either when I go to the airport. So I'm kind of superstitious like that. There are some story and I meant to bring it up to you because my wife told me the other day we had to drop are any of the airport and. I guess some guy drove up to it and Either tried to do something maybe tried to kill himself or did or something I needed to find. Did you hear that story I? Realize? That's not exactly broncos daily podcast material but. Talk. About blue a lot. I'm GonNa see if I can find the story. I don't bring everybody down and see if. I try to avoid all. For I've got a friend who every time he goes to the airport here a picture of it and text it to me. Until I opened up texting like damn you. Coming in. You're getting rick rolled by blue safer instead of never gonNA, give you up its. Forces me he should put the music. We should figure out a way to put the music under to that. All right. Well, okay. Final thought then as I let you around and always appreciate that I steal more of your time than you plan on But what do you see for? Sunday with Tom, Brady and Shaq Barrett and company come into town Broncos, they're underdogs again. as you know PK, the broncos have covered. Both Games even though they lost depends on the number yet for the Tennessee game because it kept shifting but yeah. Covered the two and a half they did they did cover that they covered again yesterday. The broncos are really competitive and losing. I don't think. Anybody would expect that the broncos could be Tampa Bay. When they come in here with Brady on Sunday, but I wouldn't put it past them. This team has so much heart chapter risk will get a full week of prep in all the snaps in practice which should benefit him. I would think probably quite a bit and we've seen that the broncos defense is good. This broncos defense is good. They have they have good personnel on that. Pretty much the whole defense. They really played pretty well again, yesterday at all three levels, you like you like the way the teams built. Yeah. You really do I mean the steelers had to. Two big plays on them. And other than that. They really held them pretty much in check I see them doing the same thing on Sunday keeping the game close and then maybe maybe they'll get about. At. It's it may I maybe it's their turn or the football gods go. Hey let's get the broncos the balance of the turnover at the end of the game here and get them a w. they could happen. You know what it feels like the last time they got it was wind shelby Harris intercepted. Big Ben Two seasons ago, and then the football gods have been against them since. Maybe now the loop was closed yesterday and We'll see if if the football God's will now look favorably upon them. Like how you think I'd like that thought. Loop has been closed. The football God's will look favorably down on the broncos and do not look lucifer straight in the now and do that but feel free to use that on either show this week listening to both. The time is always talk to you next week next rick. Thanks as always Rick Lewis make sure you're listening to him on Fox and on Koa and follow him at one Rick Lewis on twitter and instagram tomorrow to talk with Big Al Well, competition already happened but you'll hear from big Al and also a handful broncos players as they'll talk to US Tuesday in zoom calls and talk to us about the mood in the locker room where everything is with these injuries what their plan is to stop Tom Brady and bucks in a defense of my I may have underestimated because I talked to somebody in the league that.

FM CAST box and all third party. Applications check this out based platforms such as kids of day and Arrowhead and if you cannot finest hi this their research radio issues and you will find welcome to the kingdom. Welcome to kingdom radio. I'm your host Richard Smith and with me as always I have my a senior. NFL Aniston Co host. Chris Chavez Chris. We've got a lot to discuss tonight. You know. With this broncos game. The significance of has has this season and also some weather bear in here bearing down on Kansas City that we should touch base on. But Chris. How're you doing doing? I'm doing fantastic ongoing really amped up for this game as the hours passing and more and more excited and it's only Saturday and it's only only Saturday. Yes and look. We've got the DENVER broncos tomorrow at noon Arrowhead. There is predicted to be three to five inches. The snow and Al Qaeda Chris Hop into that a little bit more. What's the weather looking like? Because this is always a factor in Kansas City in December. And tomorrow it just missile happens. The weather's GonNa Creep up and we'll have an impact on the game well as you said We're predicting snow. flurries snow accumulation throughout the game era between three to five inches. The high tomorrow is expected to be a high of twenty nine degrees. And and so that's GONNA drastically affect the game I feel I think that it's GonNa make the game more of a running game as opposed to a passing game just because because receivers are gonNA have a hard time seeing the ball in the air for long stretches so we're GONNA see a lot of short intermediate passes and we're all going to end up seeing a huge shift into a running game from both sides and you know and it could very well be a run in heavy game especially with the snow but Patrick Mahomes has proven that he can fling the ball around in elements and and this is oh. This is a big game also for drew. Lock who's really been impressive. You know the his first two starts going to and now with four hundred forty three three passing yards five touchdowns and two interceptions and Kansas City is really going to focus in on him because it. I'M NOT GONNA speak too soon and I don't want to give this kid get any more credit than he deserves but it looks as though that Denver might have themselves a quarterback but this also this is also osweiler did as well also. I don't want to jump out there too soon. I'm never on the Broncos bandwagon period but especially with quarterbacks to show me a lot more more than two games for me to be impressed with Jew Lot while I agree with you and this we need to see more more for a tape on him to to really have a true a judge or make at your judgement on and what I've seen has been pretty impressive Hill draw Paul back. And he's especially this last game against Houston. He was willing to throw the long ball but when he's getting pressured he'll pull the ball down running he'll take off and he'll run with it. which is a good mean that we're gonna be seeing a completely different offense than when we face the Broncos last time against Joe Blackened Joe stood back there and just took hit after hit after hit and drew lock? He's running around and he's been making things happen. This going to be a very interesting game. I feel like the the biggest key for the chiefs. Defense going down the stretch here. Besides that they finally jailed and you can tell that they've jailed is the speed and I think that that's a huge asset set for Kansas City. Is what speed they have across the board. Because you know we're eliminating plays and shortening plays just by the Dynamic Annika getting to the ball faster so you know as long as we have some type of spy on him. I figure it's you know all all go all go when it comes to the defence as usual. So I don't know what's your take on that because the speed factor deathly deathly is a scenario that the chiefs can utilize in their favor. Yeah so because he still new and young he'll be making some mistakes. He gets pressured Hey tends to throw the ball into tight coverages when His routes have been what's the word I'm looking for. the timing has been messed up. On the routes he stares down his receivers and the way that our secondary has been playing over the last several games you can tell that their communication and their fluidity in their play has has drastically improved from the beginning of the season. I think that Our defense crease. Several like two to three possibly four turnovers from lock in this game if They they rely heavily on the passing game. But then you also look out the offense of line that is going to be missing. There's starting right guard. And they're starting right tackle. I was just at the lesson that we face the broncos and they had two starters out and it leads to a absolute civil of an offensive line. I we'RE GONNA so we're going to see very much Maybe not the sack totals but I think the pressures we're GONNA see a high amount of those the game tomorrow and you know I was just taking a look at the broncos death char as you were saying this and you know it shows here that Austin Austin Schloffmans is the backup for left guard center and Right Guard. That's how tight they are on the offensive line so I guess I think Kansas City can absolutely attack this offensive line and get after lock in and make it a long day for him. And that's really all the chiefs needed to stop running game. Make it a long day for July and that. Just here's here's another great thing is our corners and our defensive backs are doing their job so it gives more confidence in spags to send you know eight guys nine guys in the box because he knows that we have help over the top in. That's something that chiefs haven't had the last few seasons. Yeah absolutely and I think that If timber does go oh to a run heavy attack tomorrow both GONNA play right into our hands because then we can stack eight nine in the box and truly shut down those running lanes and forced into try to throw a ball against our secondary. I if there isn't commit weather it's GonNa play right for France and I couldn't agree more with you because this is a scenario where they have a banged up interior offensive line. Fine you know and that plays right into our hands. You know as as far as our depth chart because I mean that's Chris Jones Derek. Nadi Nadi we're going to get after them and I feel like if we stack the box all day long regardless will be okay. Hey because it's going to be inclement weather. The offensive line's banged up. is going to be run heavy. Even if they're not running our corners are good enough to shut the pass. APPS game down I I really look for spags to bring it all game long and because there's not any there's no reason not to. Yeah and it's going to one further chiefs to do his force Denver to continue new trying to run the ball to stop in the beginning. And that's what they're what they're going to try to do because all season long on all of the NFL and the media has claimed that the chiefs can't stop the run and yet in the last couple games the chiefs have held all the opposing rushing rushing attacks. Two hundred hundred yards the the leading rushers have broken one hundred and so obviously we can't play the run and I want for Denver to try to run the ball against us because the thyroid were ball. All they're not going to be moving the ball. They're going to have three now. They're going to punt folder. GonNa turn it over the chiefs. Offense gets the ball they put up seven points. Put up fourteen points. Put Up Twenty one points. Then the broncos are going to have to throw the ball and that's again go right into our hands we can then just go after the quarterback and drop back in coverage yes and it really makes our makes their offense one dimensional and it makes our defensive scheme easier. And here's one thing that you and I touch base on the last time. The chiefs and the broncos matched up is is how deep the broncos running attack is. That's probably the deepest spot on their rosters at running back with Philip. Lindsay Royce Freeman and devante booker but the chiefs really did a great job at that first game on. Obviously I know that this is a completely different team like you would touch base on believe before for the show because you know. This isn't the same Denver Broncos team and JOE FLACCO isn't the starting quarterback but we did a great job of shutting down the run game and really getting pressure on Denver all game long and that was against a healthy offensive line and Abang dubbed Kansas City. The defense so now we're going in there. You know pretty healthy for the most part. I would say we've lost a piece. I really hated to to see another injury. Come on especially with the player. That could've been defensive player of the year Ogbeh but I still think that we look better. Overall on our depth chart on defense compared to their offense even withdrew lot coming on all the pieces as we brought back. I feel like we're in the right spot to just Wreak havoc on drew. Lock all game long. Yeah and it's going to be a man you've got me on this Keiko. This can be completely different game because this was also the game where Patrick mahomes homes got knocked out because of the kneecap though yes you're and we ended up. We beat them with Matt Moore. Yes and We end up throwing the ball a lot more than I really thought we were going to. Even after the injury but shady was leading Russia the game with a with twelve attempts for sixty four yards Denver rushed the ball twenty one times and had a total of seventy one yards right and so we very much much control. They're running in this game and we can. We will be pretty much everything. And here's the thing also is not this is a head game now and the AFC west. Let's be honest Chris. Let's let's Let's take it to a point where bear the chiefs have been the most winning team inside their division out of any team in any division of football in the last five years and and there comes you know a certain powerhouse mode with that and when a team like the chiefs plays a denver. broncos or raiders chargers every one of those teams of course we have a target but they know they know they got you have to play a game against Kansas City and nothing less nothing less and I just. I don't think we've seen drew lock under the type of pressure that the chiefs can put him under. He's played the chargers and he's play the Texans and don't get me wrong. They both have good defenses. They do but I I just it's arrowhead. It's December the chiefs. Don't lose December number one and it's snowing Ju- locks never been to arrowhead. July grew up in Kansas City. He's from the Kansas City area. And this'll be as first time coming back to the areas of starting quarterback unfortunately for the Denver broncos goes but this is almost a homecoming for lock to but is the environment too big for a quarterback like Julok. That's my question. Chris is it too the big for him right now. This platform I. I would be extremely impressed if it wasn't too big for him You have a rookie. Starting writing in his third game in Arrowhead in December with the team's playoff hopes on the line when they're mathematically Denver still has an extremely slight chance to make the playoffs right now right and role rose. The broncos are going to have a ton of pressure on them and even more so unlock to be on point in this game and in and to lead them to a victory. And I mean it's going to be a huge pressure cooker situation for him and I don't think he's GonNa be ready for all of that to come on him all at once. Right I agree. I agree and this is one wanted those scenarios where this can be a make-or-break game for drew lock and his confidence. We really haven't seen him like you said we don't have any film on drew lock and I think that's the difference maker right now and that's why he's having so much success. This is a kid that I'm telling you will he. He's he's doing well right now. He is for and fifty yards passing five touchdowns and two interceptions but when it really comes down to it wait wait. Tell people hone in on his on his skill strengths and weaknesses. And then we'll see the real the law and that was actually something that Any Badger was saying we can practice because as an Arizona Zone Cardinal. He had the same experience going up against the backup for the steelers at the time I can't remember his name but he ended up going going out there and throw for like three hundred yards You touchdowns and they beat the cardinals but all week floor with the cardinals had hadn't taken him very seriously because Oh he's a backup piece. This Landry Jones. That's the guy I was trying to think of it. Yeah He's he's he hasn't done anything Lavar We're just out there. We're going to show the stew what's up and it ended up being the other way around where the cardinals got blown out uneasy. Badger is now stepping up and being the leader on the defense. That he is is is telling the entire defense. Don't take this guy lightly. Yeah he's a rookie. But we have to be on our eight-game for this guy and having that experience Sanad leadership is just another monumental feat for our defense and wealth of knowledge for them and I think that we come out in this game. Victoria's I think it's GonNa be a close game because of everything put together but I I think the honey badger is gonna be one of the reasons why whether it has leadership or his on the Phil Play. He's going to have an impact on this game for sure and he's a smart player. Yeah I don't know if a chiefs kingdom knows this but you know against New England. He made a phenomenal play. And did he pointed over to New England sideline and then he pointed to his head is like I'm you know I'm catching you. I'm smarter than you and I know what you're doing and I feel like the two weeks of film on drew. Lock is just enough for Kansas City to be able to hone in and take advantage of a few of this weaknesses and exposes larger ones. Because if you can get him feeling uncomfortable that will that will be the determining factor factor on whether or not this kid is is really a starting quarterback in the NFL. OR COMING OUT ON. Fire like most other quarterbacks due to the scenarios that you and I are talking about right now. So it's yes. He's a quarterback though absolutely chiefs do not take him lightly but if they don't and they're not going to we're going to be just fine and this is and I'm going to touch base on something that you just talked about Kris. which is the leadership aspect with honey badger? And what I love about this is. There's different tiers of leadership throughout the defense. You Know Starting from the coaching Chint staff going down through the players in the secondary and the linebacking corps and on the defensive line and the linebacking core. It's you know there's not really the your dominant this guy's the leader but there there are some guys out there you know. Dan See Raglan Lee. You know a few of those guys know what they're doing and have leadership skills but the defensive line obviously Chris. Jones is the leader. But it's nice to have that leadership on the defensive side of the ball again and we touched on that All preseason long as well about how every tier ear of the defense has a leader and the coaching staff sets that tone within the players took on that same persona as well. And it's and it's finally. I paid off. It started with the first Denver game where the defense finally started to jail and come together and every week after that point and they took talk step after step after step till point where they are currently playing at a superbowl caliber level. You just need to offense to bring it together so that they it can be on that same page too but I love what I'm saying from the team as a whole right now. It's it's Drastically a drastic ask improvement from five weeks ago. We'll put it that way. And so here's my thing about this game. Is We absolutely have to lock down defense. And that's been our bug view and you know the com- monkey are back all season long and it seems like every time that there's a player that comes to the board we feel like we need to pick him up including these two names that just got released here the last few days engineers Jenkins and Terrell suggs. But here's the thing and Chris we're going to touch base on this because you and I had really gone into depth about this and we've come to kind of the same conclusion is you can't keep bringing pieces into a team this deep into a season. This is the time where our team has gelled together and to make a push in the playoffs and towards the Super Bowl we have to keep the same pieces to the puzzle. You can't you can't keep adding pieces at this point. The team is a team now no matter what and bringing new pieces in is just going to throw off the foundation of what's been built and so Chris has talked to chiefs keenum. Tell them a little bit about why. Why should we not you know? Pick up a player like Janoris Jenkins Tail suggs or anybody for that matter at this point in season so looking at both of these guys separately Abberley really quickly generous Jenkins read underneath a Steve spagnolo defense in the New York jets. He's familiar with. He's not familiar with the players that he'll be playing with on this defense and he is going to as we saw with the chiefs defense already this year. It took them them several weeks to figure out how to communicate and how to predict with each other are going to be doing on any given play in any given situation or scenario you bring in a player like generous Jenkins who is a starter colliver. cornerback and you're going to be messing up. That commodity that the secondary has and on the flip side you look at Terrell suggs. He has a stack master at thirty seven years old. He still has five sacks this season and as the season gone on he's lost more more and more playing time due to injuries illnesses whatnot and the cardinal go because they want to move on from him and they were giving their younger players more and more playing time now sucks. I'm sorry choice is gonNA come in and he's going to add to. You're defensive line. He's he's not going to replace. Alex ochre for no no. He's not were placed. A manual logbook stealth going to replace a Frank Clark and so we don't really have a need for him on our defensive line we we have tremendous death at our defensive line and I think that's probably our deepest position and on Defense Our D.. Line we you don't need to have more peace there. No and then here's the thing also is thing about bringing in a player like Jenkins and then you also put into perspective. The he played on the New York giants. When spags coached the defense? That tells me that Jenkins is old and and so. When it comes the Kansas City chiefs we really have a youthful team and and this point and the season it does not not make sense to bring in a cornerback? Throw him on a defense and expect you know the corner across the field or the safety safety to have the trust in him like they did the player that he replaced. That's something that's built. You can't just come on a team and everything be perfect and right from the gate and that's what we would need out of trade right now. That's why the chiefs brought Spencer where your back is to get somebody familiar with the system to bring them back to you. Know to help us with this playoff push. But that's a whole other scenario the and then going and looking at generic Jin Janoris Jenkins or Terrell suggs and neither of those make sense for Kansas City. especially with the scenario Brioni. We have eighteen free agents tender to After the season's over and also touch on what you just brought up with spent you're wear. He's familiar with this offense of line. They're familiar with him right. They understand how to block block for him and he understands how to read their blocks six. And so that's a very different Lario than bringing in an unknown like agent. Orange Terrell sucked. What's what's the injury report looking like? Have you heard anything about that for the chiefs. I haven't heard anything at all. For the Broncos they have a season high seventeen players listed Or either on my our or Gore were injured in some way she perform the majority of its own the defensive side but on they're going to be losing their Starting left defensive invent demarcus Walker. He's out for the game on the his backup is questionable. germont Jones They just brought back the account PETCO on this this week and then the backup defensive end for the right side. Adam got says he's out they're a third cornerback. Cyrus Jones is out for the game and then on the offensive side like I said earlier. They're starting right guard and right tackle. Karpov out for the game which is great for the chiefs but our our Injury report as long as well. We have twelve players on our are injury report and as it stands right. Now Rashad Fenton and Morris Claiborne are the only ones ruled out. Frank Clark is questionable with his illness. I'm not really sure what's going on with that and I'm actually excited to hear about that because Frank Clark had dropped something like twelve pounds since Monday with this stomach virus or illness that he has gone on. You can't get rid of it and I'm really hoping that we figure out what's going on with that. Because that's a huge investment and kind of a scary scenario and overall for his health as a person. I hope he's okay Damian Williams is reported questionable. So will that you think that will drop Spencer. Wear down to the fourth spot in the depth chart you know what honestly I think. That's probably GonNa drop the Darwin Thompson down Why they would keep Spencer? We're the third spot is because of his pass protection ability I don't like that move but I would understand why they're doing it. Especially against the Denver broncos If they do that next week against Chicago You know honestly I. I think that would make a lot of sense as well but I. I'm just at a point where I wanna see what Darwin Thompson can add to the table. And maybe we have to wait until weeks against the chargers In order to see it but even then it'd be matter of do we have the the number two the number one spot locked up. Are we still playing for playoff seeding. If we are we probably won't see Doran Thompson very much this year And we might have to wait until next regular season or to truly see what he can do But on that note I really liked what we have seen in from him and has progression since preseason and that's what I don't understand about this scenario is I feel like that there's other factors offers that are going into him. You know continuing to be on the bottom of the depth chart when it's obvious that every time he touches the the ball and he's on the field you see this other level at the running back position for the chiefs and I don't quite understand it and it's just I I'm I'm a loss for words. Can I jump in really quickly because I love what you're bringing up right there out having Darlan Thompson on the field in the backfield in brings an energy to the team and drive a couple weeks ago where he had almost every single cherry and fell. I don't like the Kareem Hunt Chiefs. Yes it would just had another edge to their offense yes and we send cream left off are running backs have not had that effect on the offense but when Donald Johnson came in there and felt like it was back. Yes and I don't understand why we're not going towards that. It doesn't make any sense and he doesn't put the ball on the ground either. Yeah I think he. He dropped one But he he recovered that one and then I think he He dropped one easy pass that he should have had. But it's not a matter of it's not a Shawn McCoy situation where every time he's touching the bowl year concerned about especially with his smaller hands. Alonzo ball look like hey. He's doing what he needs to do is still crippen up all still powering over guys. Yes and mind. That's hard to do as well. That takes away from your momentum you know. When you're double double grouping the ball but he's a truck you know when he gets down low Just about run through anybody and it's crazy because he's a smaller back but he's got plenty of heart and drive and adjust. I'm ready to see the chiefs. Cut Him loose. It's time I if we have any type of secret weapon like it. Seems like he's the guy. Yeah and especially at this point of the season we definitely need for him to get used to the NFL speed and in the games that he has been been seeing touches and seeing the field. I UH-HUH I've liked what I've seen overall and I think that he needs more time to see the field to see the defenses and to get acclimated to the speed speed his speed his physical ability house him ready to to go. That route is just a matter of making the mental leap and that's only going to happen with him being on the field and seeing it and and going into the playoffs if if he's going to be a guy. We're GONNA a utilize in the playoffs. He needs to be seeing time. Anything the field now. Yes it's just this and I feel like he has the mentality A. He's a beast in the weight room. He has relentless work ethic. And and I'm just I am blown away by the Stubbornness of the coaching staff to not give this kid a chance. I'm I'm sick of watching thirty yard rushing games a week. Why why not give this kid a chance? It just makes no sense sense. None the RHINEBECK by committees garbage for Kansas City. And something's gotTa happen and he's the spark so why isn't he being cut loose. And why aren't we given Anthony. Sherman the Baltimore especially the third third shorts fourth in shorts. You know it seems like Anthony. Sherman's getting paid to be on special teams and he could be clear and holes for our our running backs but in the same respect. Andy Reid runs at complex offense and and heck you never know what formation. You're going to get but it's time it's time to cut Darwin loose so the chiefs are sitting at nine and four Denver sitting at five eight. This really is an extremely important game for Kansas City. Especially if we WANNA lock in the the two seed in the playoffs and and have a bye week but I will say this. Outside of the remainder of the chiefs schedule the broncos the bears and the chargers. The team to really watch if you're chief's fan is the Pittsburgh steelers because tomorrow the Pittsburgh steelers play the buffalo bills and then week seventeen gene. The Pittsburgh steelers play the Baltimore Ravens so both of these teams obviously have you huge implications on on the seeding. The chiefs will get in the playoffs. So keep an eye out for Pittsburgh at. That's a team to watch watch for Because that's GonNa you know they hold a lot of you know Barriers to US getting to where we want to be and there's also a very strong chance that we could be seeing them in the first round as well well if we ended up getting the third seat and so like you said they're gonNA team to watch over the next several weeks WHO's they're going to help us out? They're going to hurt us and they're going to be a team that we need to start scouting and being ready for the playoffs. And that's the thing too is as much as the steelers. This can help us if the steelers beat Buffalo and they beat Baltimore. They're gonNA play their way right into the playoffs and and then then they're a team. We have to look out for this. This is the exciting thing about the. AFC this year is we have three weeks left in the season. There's only two teams of locked in a spot on the AFC side. The rest is wide open. Anything can happen. I'm And legitimately you know you were talking about the odds of you. Know some teams still sneaking into the playoffs like the broncos. The odds Are just as heavy for a team like the Patriots who ultimately could lose out and not make the playoffs which would be crazy. But that's still a scenario as well so these two of their next three. We'll make the so Mr Hall and it's it's crazy to think the New England patriots would not make the playoffs but that would be awesome. And that's that could happen. That realistically realistically could happen. So this is an exciting time but the chiefs have to keep winning. We've got a product on the field that can beat anybody and we should and feel confident. We should feel confident at home and we should feel confidence. AFC West and with that being said we talked about earlier. The chiefs owned the West Best. So Chris with it being a divisional game in years past we would say these are tough games individual games. You know. They're the toughest games we play on her schedule. But as it has played out there almost lock in wins for us. It's also GONNA take Denver lightly but what does the implications of that being a AFC west game with the thought that we could possibly lose this scheme. It's definitely a scary scenario at and I hate to admit it but has definitely has scenario that could could rear its ugly head in this game. There's a lot of unknowns here It's a new. It's a new offense. A new defense for the broncos A- and to touch on that there are secondary has been sneakily. Good this year. They don't get a lot of credit but they're they're doing won't fantastic. Justin Simmons is probably one of the top SAFETIES in the League right now. Nobody knows about him Christmas has been doing a pretty good job. This year. I mean they're the dimmer. Both of these things are coming into this game as if they've were seen each other before because the chiefs team that we that went into that earlier game. It's not the same team. We have each year defense. That is solid right now. Now our offense is going to be very different different. Feel to it as well. And and then you're saying the Broncos are going to be completely different too so it and then you throw in the weather on top of that. This is going to be a huge game. We keep. We've touched base a lot on the defense and we really haven't talked about the offense too much because you know this is. This is the time of year that is coming down to where our defenses carrying us. And it's crazy how we shift gears but we need to really talk about this offense because offense is sputtering and it's no secret that we haven't produced like we did last season. I mean you can't expect the team to put up forty the two points to season straight. But we're getting victories. Here's my thing Chris and I've been wanting to ask you this. Is it just me or as Mahomes just her. I mean he's been beat up all season long that he's playing her he's being tough mahomes beat up. He's going to go back to what he was before. But he's a little off right now and you can see that. I don't see that sticking around or stain but am I wrong to say that Mahomes is is hurt and his playing hurt and is not the mahomes that that we know I will say that. He's absolutely playing her. As we saw last week against New England he hurt his hand in the first quarter and played most of the game without her hand. It was slain slim. That ball and he's still looked good doing he. Just didn't look good afterwards. Because he's sitting there holding his hand right Coming Ping it but he definitely looked all all over. All the better at quarterback in Brady did in the game last week and you know. He's had three injuries that we know of data drastically affected him all year long and yet he's still put up a three thousand plus yards season. And I would really realistically I would say that. It's not him that's looking bad I mean he's making throws he's making I'd say probably about eighty five to ninety percent of his throws are accurate. They're where they need to be work. The receiver catching the ball yet. It's been Sammy. Watkins who's dropping catches. Yes and and I hate to drop to this guy under the bus. A little bit kelsey dropping passes hill as much. But he hasn't been healthy either demarcus Robinson Johnson passes and it has even caught a pass like since week. Three he's doing he has completely disappeared appeared. I don't know what's going on with him. Harden Hartman. I don't think he's dropped a pass but he's definitely not seeing as many Looks targets or is getting as much playing time as a guy who has been as productive as he's been should begin. I also feel like that. The chiefs have been playing a little bit of small ball. And that's all right. We've been playing. Get it out of. Oh your hand early you know dump it off from out of the backfield a short cut route. It's we're playing small ball. We really haven't been taken the deep shots like we had typically done last season and early on this season So do you think the lack of production is just the different style of offense. The grid is running at the moment. Yes and I think that we ultimately have to run this style of an offense offense because of our offensive line right. I we we boot while Eric Fisher was out we have camera being back there right and God that was awful and then we had injuries all along our interior line and I think that some of those injuries Dr still lingering and guys are trying to play through but I I personally with I start with new ski in their two and let home ever need to take the time off. Let them sit for a little bit right completely. Agreed you you know. Here's here's something that I that I would like to think is with everything that's happened with the chiefs this season. That when we seventeen seventeen rolls around and the chiefs head into the playoffs the chiefs will probably be the most Gel. They'll be all year round bound and and my mind also as healthy as I have been an probably get past some of those lingering injuries and I and we might have the strongest chiefs team in the playoffs. And we've had all season. What are your thoughts on that? I have to agree because while the defense is improving. And that's that's the other crazy thing is that while they they are definitely the stronger aspect of our team right now. They aren't even playing at one hundred percent. They still have room to grow into improve. Our our offense is certainly not at their best. But we know we know what they're capable of doing on any given Sunday Sunday and we haven't seen that at all this year for whatever myriad of reasons but there they could absolutely just flip flip the switch and turn it on and and maybe that's another aspect is maybe Andy. Reid is trying to save the offense from overworking themselves and trying to be as close to one hundred percent as possible for the play offs which will be great because you know this is a reserved offense and you can tell and I think that you could be right like we're gonNA cut loosen and really bring out the guns towards the the end but this is look. This is Andy Reid football when you feel like you don't know why he's doing things that he is. There's reason behind. There's reasons he's behind everything here. You know big red does and at this point. If I'm confused as to what the chiefs coaching staff is doing. That's a really good thing you know as far as moving forward because that makes us you know makes the chiefs ultimately unpredictable. I don't WANNA say unpredictable. But there will facets of the game that you don't know what's coming with the chiefs and and there have been some mystery things pieces going on with this chiefs team all season along the offensive and defensive side of the ball and Chris we could really get it all clicking and going together for this playoff run and just be nasty Asti being nasty nasty team and just be scary for any appointed. They're absolutely not the thing is like regardless of what our yeah sorry either. I think there's a big lack regardless of our seeding in the playoffs. We are going to be one of if not the most scariest teams that any team is going to face right because we have a very good we have a very capable offense. Yes and if the if either pride is performing at let's say seventy five percent that's most other team one hundred percent. We should be terrorizing teams and a- As we're getting into where we should be quote unquote peaking on. They know that and they know capable of they're scared they just WANNA admit it. Yeah it's it's one of those scenarios when you prepare for a team like the Kansas City chiefs you know how how do you. How do you prepare for town? It's just it's probably the most demanding job for any coaching staff. And in a while to prepare for team like this chiefs team this season So I think we'll be all right. So let's let's move onto predictions here. Chris what do you think we're going to do here tomorrow. It's noon Game Arrowhead Stadium keep in mind the weather three to five inches of snow. Twenty degree weather Chris. All ooh my prediction is we. We destroy them So the one thing that I want to route there is the broncos have been using a lot of dual tight end sets. Yes yes Honestly I feel like that plays right right into our hands because then we only have to have two two corners on the field. Give time you don't necessarily what the focus on user usual utilizing a nickel cornerback on a third wide receiver and we have so much speed to. Oh yeah the death of that plays right in the chiefs hands keep going okay so The the one person who we need to focus on him. There's two two aspects of your folks on their offense is Colin Sutton who Aleve quarterbacks they can shut him down but no fat only come on lately and when he doesn't drop the ball he's an absolute weapon for them. He's he's a lot. He plays a lot like tramps Kelsey a lot. Like yes and what I think we need to do is we need to put a a rashawn brilliant on on him because of the law firms the bigger body that he can potentially affect Fancy dance catch radius and his ability to have a clean catch right and Then we just put a linebacker on our men or from A. Golly The other tight ends whoever else they tried out on the field and we should be able to control their offense Sudden's going to get his. We know that But if we can limit to how much of an effect he has on the game. We're all Speight's For going into my prediction based on that I think that she's pull this out I'm going to say twenty seven seventeen twenty seven seventeen and I like that. I also like you know all those dimes that you just dropped and yes no fan Dan he really is the the weapon that the Broncos have been looking forward but he's questionable right now. So here's my thing when you talk about the double double set tied in look and you talk about our secondary to me that tells me that are safeties fifties. One of our safety should have huge day. I don't care if it's thornhill or honey Badger but one of them will have have a huge day tomorrow because they're you know you laid the map out perfectly that somebody's going to be wide open every play and is going to be fun run because spags is going to have that extra chess piece to do what he wants with. So like we saw last week with Honey Badger peeling off a few in the quarterback and feel and often getting interception perception No that was two weeks on sorry Just have an extra pizza. He can throw around utilize wherever and make the quarterback quarterback think that the pieces are going to be there but it really is or or even vice versa. It's going to be a huge huge component to our defensive defensive performance. Yeah I feel like that. It's GonNa be a lot more fun than we think because you think of everything that we laid out. I'm going to summarize their whole offense that you and I had laid out the the double Tynan set. It frees up a defensive player. Their offensive line being banged up at frees up another player realistically especially with how much talent we have on the defensive line then we go towards the elements with a drew lot quarterback who's only played two. NFL Games as a starting quarterback never been to arrowhead never ever played in. The snow. Never played against the chiefs. This is GONNA be. The chiefs are hard hitting team team. We bring the lumber. This isn't you know I don't. I don't think that the Texans and chargers have the firepower and the man's drink drink that the chiefs have. It's it's a different level of competition when you play the Kansas City chiefs at this point and it's something that this team is is not prepared for at all even even you know no offense. He's a new peace. He's not ready for the chiefs. Use None of these players are. This is a semi young team you know. And and that's what the broncos needed to do. You know they have Portland Portland Sutton Philip Lindsay. There's those they're not they're veterans you know On every other level with what they bring to the table it's plane right into our scheme. All of it every bit of it Chris. Would you agree with that absolutely wait. I mean it's it's GonNa be a long day for a law. I truly believe that. That's the key element the key element and we have this. So here's my prediction with all of that with two to five inches of snow. Patrick Mahomes as our quarterback he now were nine and four Denver's five eight. It means a lot to us right now in the playoffs. It's December as well can't city is always played well in December. Andy Reid is our coach. I I'm GonNa say this one's going to be a little bit more lopsided decided than than what you had said. Chris and I'm GonNa go with the chiefs are GonNa take this one Thirty eight to two thirteen. We're GONNA go off and you're GonNa see the offense that you've been seeing all your out all year long and it's going to be crazy easy because it's going to be in a snow game but you're still going to see mahomes winging the ball around as long as the wind isn't terrible war mahomes will still throw the ball and and we'll be alright. And as long as our wide receivers achievers. Don't drop the ball. So that's my prediction. That's a bold statement but I think the cheese can handle it. I think she's can handle it so Chris. Do you have anything thing to add. I add one more thing to add in. This is going to be another prediction esque sort of thing. I think that Traboulsi I will see. It's his thousand yards in the game tomorrow and becomes the first tight end in. NFL history to four consecutive years of one thousand yards receiving eleven yards away. He's out deathly going to do. And what better way to do it at home in December against the division rival Denver Broncos. There's there's lots of lots of records breaking when it comes to the chiefs will put it that way and it allows. I WANNA touch base one more thing for hop off your is twenty dollars made the you know the NFL. All One hundred players lists which which is awesome there. I was pretty disappointed. The Derrick Thomas did not make it a given the talent pool of linebackers. It's a little bit different than A. Tony Gonzalez Ellis so. I was really happy to see that. Congratulations Tony Gonzalez.

I want all the meatballs and pasta. Well it is. Monday broncos country not gonna say happy monday. Because you're broncos fall to the falcons thirty four twenty seven in atlanta. Yes had fallen down. Twenty seven six. They made a furious comeback drew. Lock going over three hundred yards again. He also in on top of throwing two touchdown ran one in. He was here leading. Rusher forty seven yards on seven carries nice average and had a career high or career. Long with that sixteen yard touchdown run. But it's one thing of kylie leading rusher or lamar jackson or even a josh allen. If drew lock your leading rusher that means. It's probably not a good day. Because i mean you're running backs aren't doing anything. And that was the case. We knew that the falcons were a good run defense. They were the six best run defense coming in. And the broncos played into that for the most part phillip lindsay twenty. Three yards on eight carries. Melvin gordon teen yards on six carries did see a big day from jerry jeudy it didn't seem to faze him much he said. Yeah that's all good but the dub it doesn't matter. We'll hear from jay judy coming up. One hundred twenty five yards seven catches and caja hamler. Nice day six catches seventy five yards in the air obviously because their catches and another fifteen yards on that end around. You wanna see that more. And i talked about this last night. I hosted the broncos react overtime. Show from five until eight. Then i do after the early games this season and up the point that the mortgage hamler is used in. The offense era was doing the show with me any rodriguez. He was there running the board and the enough to help me out getting through this three hours. But we talked about the creativity or lack of creativity. Pat shurmur shows at times. Did he show a little more using caja hamler to get the ball in his hands. The more they are able to run that to some success and even that fifteen yard game is enough that it allows you to set up play action off of the jet sweep motion and even double-play action. If you will fake to hamler faked. Gordon or lindsey and then able to throw the ball downfield in the play action so while it's not the most creative offense you've seen in. Yes pat shurmur. From andy reid tree but doesn't design plays that way Consistently and call plays the way andy re. Does you still see the the more they do stuff like that. The i think more excited broncos fans will be about this offensive scheme and the way pat. Shurmur tries to design a game plan with drew. Lock in mind now when you look at some of the struggles. It was definitely a case where drew lock was off his back foot from time to time was getting out of the pocket maybe quicker than he should've but on the other side of the coin. You didn't have graham glasgow. You didn't have demar dotson for the second half and so drew's having to rely on rookie center a backup right guard for the second straight game. And then jake. Rogers who is essentially the fourth right tackle on your roster john. James is still technically the first then. Elijah wilkinson demar dotson whom some people may think is an upgrade over larger wilkinson. And then jake. Rogers who got one start late in the year last year when elijah went down at least one start maybe two but i think there's just one so it's maybe it's a chicken and egg kind of conversation right is drew and the offense struggling because of the play calls or the offense struggling because of drew in the players despite the play calls is a little bit about. How do you split the blame. And the consensus. We have is still more on the coaches because they could go up tempo a little bit. I'm not a fan of going up tempo. A lot because especially with the young team. You run the risk of getting the defense even more gas than they were at times and so you get off the floor you get up the floor you get off. The field. Three plays defense. Who still having impove from a long drive potentially has to get right back out there now. I suppose if the defense goes three and out and they're well rested you come out after that. It's not as crazy as if you do it. On the heels of a twelve play seventy yard scoring drive the defenses out there for Giving up some sort of point so look the defense was well over yesterday. Also because you already knew you weren't gonna have aj boy that was very likely shelby. Harris couldn't travel either because of his proximity to someone who tested positive for coronavirus. And then you find out late bryce callahan going through his ankle just isn't where he wants it to be. So he sits down. And that means all hands on deck but demonte harris rough game trying to cover zacchaeus. And julio jones had his way with michael ojemudia in the first half is credit to the broncos defense that they were able to get the stops they could in the second half including five straight on third down. I believe but it just It was a little a little bit too much too little too late. Because i talked to paul kelly postgame. You'll you'll hear that coming up in just a little bit. Let's get through coaching quarterback first. And then we'll get to Paul so vic fangio after the game you'll hear his chat with dave and then i'll give you zoom call as well just kind of see where he's at sound a little crappy. I think they were outside of the locker room in like in the tunnel. If you will the service corridor at least that's out sounded certainly for the later. Part of the zoom sell But i vic fangio with dave logan on koa radio network postgame show. You didn't get a lot out of your offense until about the midway point of the third quarter then they come on and they're able to move the ball. It's it's puzzling. Obviously at least at least it is from my perspective y. It sort of takes them that long to get going. It definitely is a problem for us problem last week. Obviously it was a problem again this week. We've got to figure out a way to rectify that. We've got to come out and moved the ball better especially in a game where we were struggling on defense to slow down there. Good offense and one side's got to be able to pick up the other just like you know for struggling offense defense has to keep it close and you know. Obviously it's been a problem that we've got to take a good hard. Look you knew this was going to be a tough tough match up with the atlanta offense. We talked earlier in the week. About matt ryan and how accurate he is and julio jones and the list of guys and especially now making excuses but the reality is you're you're missing your top corners and edge. A boy a and brian callaghan. You're young guys really had a tough test today in the back into your defense. Good passing offense as you know with ryan at quarterback coolio jones in there other responders in tight end are good players and we weren't up to stop them in. There was the some certain point there in the first half. You know when we didn't pressure we didn't rush one good enough to help the coverage and we pressured other than a couple of times the rush one good coverage one good enough to allow the pressure to get there so we were in between a rock and a hard place there in the past defense in the first half the shore. I mentioned Drew lock here that interception late in the game. That was costly he got. He got really quick penetration on that play. He comes back and moves the ball up. Has leads. His team has a couple of touchdown passes but by large from the sideline. What what was your. What was your thought of drew lock. I just thought our whole offense was out of sorts for most of the game until you know came where we were going no huddle in. The game. Looked like it was out of control. I just thought the whole offense in every phase was i'm sort. Yeah it's a fair assessment. They were out of sorts more than they were in sorts. If you will and then vic fangio go straight from talking to david talking us on the zoom videoconference presser. First question is almost always is after a game. Can you give us an injury. Update specifically to albert. Oh who's having an mri on is needed and demar dotson with that hip injury. No our. I've got the knee injury. And that's ryan andrea. I don't think a determine the severity of either one to sleep without. aj embrace today as a playcaller. How did you have to adjust your coverage in is in your precious to account for that and experience. Yeah it was strong. Obviously i never did find the right combination there. The first half. Taylor had some good pressures but we weren't pressure in a restaurant or to try and help the secondary are pass rush one good enough and the times when we pressured the courage. One good enough and they're really good offense. Great quarterback group of receivers are passed the facts which the pass rushes aren't of you know we struggled to. How do you feel or judy. A bac- held up. You know it's hard to say right now. I need to watch the tape and so talented. But you know our past defense one good enough and that includes pass rush that includes me making the calls and better vic you guys have trailed by double digits at the half three consecutive games. Five of the last seven. Is there something in common with those early deficits. And how do you get that remedied. Well we definitely have to get remedy. That's for sure and you know in one side of the ball is struggling. You other side has to pick it up and we weren't able to do that this week. we definitely have to start better on offense. Start better on defense and so when you're on the road although the roads not same this year you know you're struggling. Offense scored ten nothing at halftime nine. Nothing thirteen three. It's not way out of whack away. It was today. Would you think of log drew lock. He seems make mistakes that that hurts yet. But also you're never it with him. It looks like he's a fighter. Dislike all our guys are. I started our whole offense. Not just drew was out of sorts in the first half in particular. We were struggling to move the ball. Obviously and not making first downs not scorn. And we've got to get that fixed. We did see jerry jeudy his first one hundred yard game. Can you talk about where he is in his meditation process. I think he's made really good strides last couple of weeks to three games like jerry's been plan like where he's he's been practicing better and it translates to the game. I think he's doing a good job in his hours. Definitely these what. We thought we got drafts coach. Were you surprised. Then you were you film it. Bradley maliki guys weren't able to get pressure other than couple of times. All game was anything you saw them doing front. That allowed ryan kinda just pick and choose. I rush which is part of the past coverage one enough. Today when we're rushing forward and that's just as important as the coverage and particularly on some of those wanted the deep ball. They completed from about midfield out. These step up. We didn't have good rush there a little bit. Were you surprised or caught off. Guard a little bit by callahan henry. It looked he was working all week and like red zone and other stop. What how did that go well. He came in monday after the last game had some swelling in his ankle realized that happened in the game and it never did quite respond to the treatment. He tried to practice with a couple of days. Like you said but he was. How one around out there and We worked in before the game today and he didn't nor did we feel you have a young team and a team. That's beat up a little bit. What positives do you take out of a game like today where you got the loss i mean does the last overcome or over overshadow everything else obviously the losses you know main priority number one. We're here to win the game. But i think we're getting better out although it's hard to see that you know when you have a game like we did today We just need to become a more consistent efficient team typically on offense and we need to be able to cover better on defense mushed passive better. That was evident. Today will will came short and i need to do a better job of on the defense. I think you mentioned about the offense being out of st. Think th the missed. Reps are just catching up to you guys. You've had to miss practice a lot two weeks. That's a real thing. I'm not gonna deny it but it's also a convenient excuse. We're not gonna use it as an excuse. We've got to make what we got available and play claire. Coach one particular situation will ask you about decided to punt there in the first quarter instead of Trying that long field goal. You call a timeout. What were you talk over on the sideline. yeah. I had a strong urge to try that. I believe it would have been fifty eight fifty nine yards but tom talked out of it so then i strong enough urge that i wanted to think about it more than to the point where i called timeout took one of the things that you probably could ask vic fangio and maybe i'll ask that today. When he talks does too little afternoon is. Do you think you should have kicked deep now. They ended up scoring after the botched onside kick. If memory serves me right when they went out they were able to march down the field. If i'm not mistaken but you would have maybe yourself in a better position. Had you not taking the onside kick them three and a half minute mark or whatever it was i drew lock was up next talking to dave and you can hear the frustration. His voice Just like you did after the chiefs game. Three hundred thirteen yards again. Twenty five of forty eight two touchdowns one pick and then forty-seven ground without sixteen yard. Or here's drew. Lock with dave logan. I'll start with the positive. You're able to get things going in the second half and and and lead them. On some drives couple of touchdown passes what what was it like for you in the second half of that game as compared to the first may those plays when they came to us in the second half You always end up seeing it and feeling better in the second half we just got to find a way to start faster plumbing. We say it every week we gotta do something different somehow and it starts us in practice election film. We just got figured out. I thought you got quick pressure today. Maybe more so than than you felt last week you know and that kind of pressure. I'm not asking you to dog your offensive line but that kind of pressure can at times make a difficult. Did they do anything. Defensively that maybe that were different. Looks to what you had guy what you guys prepared for log. C never say anything bad about the line at the end of the game. When i watch it. I'll probably praise them. I mean there are certain times in the being that game. When i got to the pocket for an unnecessary reason Not put a sim bad spots. There's a couple times. The first half i did that. It's gotta stop. That did a little better job at last week. But she's got to keep getting better in. Not if you can't be it's gotta be right now. That's the worst part. 'cause you know you wanna right now but we do. They're going to do this They like to bring pressure and extremely fast football team. I said during the week and You know we got a little better in the second. Half we practice time and Just sometimes when both are flying happens you know. It's my job to make eleven guys around me. Look good play gooden. I didn't get that under the final to you had to Good performances from your your rookie wide receivers combined jerry. Jeudy and k j hamler had thirteen catches for two hundred yards and a score so that that certainly is a step in the right direction for those two young dudes without a doubt they keep playing better but we say those guys come into practice and they're ready to go there film big shoes courtland and lose our in the second half they Their number called and they stood up to the to the test. You can hear the disappointment and frustration and do locks voice taking full responsibility and you can never get enough of the young quarterback post game. At least that's that's my belief and so winder sat down to talk on zoom call. He was asked how much of this is an issue. That can't be corrected. How much of it is just that it wasn't your day. Never meant to be in our day off our everyday guys. We have and confident him do football. Which for some reason we get to see a lot of offers. Our armed changed reiki. Not as myself at everybody film two minutes from everybody on feel something. Go back chid lead drew when you do that going forward. Is there anything positive. You can take from the last quarter and figure out a way to apply that to the first three quarters of the game if you want a law sauce. Excuse when we come back forth car last week sure we rented place lots from from my mind especially that four five times people can hear the frustration in your voice and that that's the competitor in you unsure but what about the first half needs to get better team this offense points scored on. That's for sure. Few first downs be in third and longs last week. I asked last week. Loss got to be better. I regard ocean. That's happens incoming work. We're already stopped. The process block process young guys for your first one when it was looking at half time. You're down three touchdowns in three quarter. Was there a little. We got him feel. They'd say the after last minute. Yes i once. There must be known for something we need to stop now. For comeback down. Three scores for osmium team comes out by david. Plan already forwarders first quarter. Finally a second part is you throw the ball away a lot when your head nurse people hanging on you any. Get rid of the ball. The one What is the interception. Try to i mean. Is that just something where it's you can feel the more you do it the more you wanna do it not you. I promise you know they don't wants to discredit this. But i will feel that ball ten times out of ten jerry. Big news only going to be a bullet jerry of on that route the safety by the guy underneath no chance that he had a chest zero not. I tried to back at all. That's a throw on the front yard work on straight ahead throats. All the yard work the acrobatic through his that are making like playing quarterback is only does guys get eaten. You're gonna have seven guys on that. Six fox decided away. You're going to throw the ball. I'm gonna lean on throwing long most of the time. It's when our athletes on jerry was open to throw. I can make embarrassing authors warner's drew. You guys began the year with such big at three and five. How do you have lands kind of your view. It from now moving forward because you guys have obviously put yourself in a really position at the halfway point on. Your heads can be difficult. Know we come out in the next two five ups. All end is a lot of football s. Got hit our stride early games. Think about what we do in the second half try to do that. Have scorn maybe two touchdowns on two touchdowns just gets some john first-half as lawsuit knew that in theory. You know you liked the script going in the best in you in pat or comfortable with that. Are you getting things. You don't expect from the defense's for this. Is this a bronco issue now. I mean it's always exams know we're not gonna come from the scene. I team plays around the week before we react to maybe like. I said we see in the second half. We start verse during a two four. You want to ask you about jerry jeudy big day so follow a file out of ways first hundred yard game but also i heard you talking to dave. You said you're definitely not gonna ever throw your line under the bus or anybody else on your side of the ball. But how do you balance taking as much blame. You should without putting too much of the blame on yourself or too much pressure every great quarterback at some point. This comes to the realization. Then with you all everybody else nerve one hundred to take plant go in and talk guys. Relatable better. Done this on that honesty. Should i'm the guy that has the ball on his entered. Now we get a draw so what. I'm gonna find a way to get us to the next. I must've blocked out drew. I did you get out of that. And i always have. What about judy. Jerry a try. He's a he's asserting himself in that room and then fell Gonna take a second look him now. Maybe in the year that gamons pretty clean routes but jeers physical nas job streaming lauren. On his mind really really are much. Muschamp is extremely saints. Where you know if he does make mistake. It's not a hundred miles an hour hundred percent proud. How much do you think. Having a full week of practice in this he was just a little out of sorts. The last two weeks you've had to miss you know full practice. I'm not want to speak for other quarterback experts every quarterback in league with like a fully practice. But there's zero. Excuse me needed. That was awesome. I guess he didn't do the job. I have not seen. Yeah only two practices three four players. These like that shouldn't be laughing. And back from the gazette coming up here in just minute. I want to get you to more things. So jerry jeudy alexander. Johnson talked their audio crabby. At that point they were definitely felt like they were in the tunnel. What you'd hear this from from jerry. Jeudy wall from justin simmons here quickly but jerry jeudy. I asked him about the big game and he said hey. We didn't get the job so it doesn't matter but jeff legwold did ask them about his practice habits and and the reports out there. I guess you know jeff. Talk to somebody who said he's been practicing better of late. So that's the premise for the question. And you'll hear jerry's answer to what are you doing differently in practice. Just my energy on. Just the way. Our norms on just everything i get to the mitzi embedded as a a whole not items never they get gets out of everything i do and what's interesting jerry. Jeudy amazing interesting but just worth noting that in three seasons of alabama he had four losses in one season. Here with the broncos. He already has five now. I get a little different as i joked at the end of the postgame show last night. Alabama's has a doesn't have the salary cap restrictions at the broncos. Do so there's that and a whole lot of talent there in in the sec. But jerry jeudy doesn't like losing and it's very obvious. And i think that's a commendable trait that'll carry over to his teammates vinyl piece of audio. That will here before we get to. Publicly is from justin simmons in his postgame zoom bresser. Justin had another pick. You'll hear me asking him about them. Despite that pick but the first question justin was asked was about the defensive struggles in the first half on the adjustments. They were able to make in the second. I mean we're making nearly as much many plays more being competitive We weren't challenging routes. You know we knew coming in. We talked about our record of how the especially on the offense side of the ball. I mean i know that top five ask may be higher than that and that ryan does a great job. Obviously without ridley today. Do they do a great job. guys open in the passing game. We knew that especially in the secondary. We knew it was gonna be a big game for us and we didn't compete nearly as much as we should've could've so that was pretty much the that's just in with. Aj bryce out. You had a lot of guys in their played a lot of defensive snaps forty this year. What was the challenge in the back end of trying to get everybody. I guess Yeah on this is a lot of communication. That's why it's so important to be locked in throughout the league in you know if you're a backup guy to be ready when your number's called to be locked in on meetings because you never know what happened you know. You're not guaranteed to finish the game. You're not guaranteed to always the out air on one hundred percent injury rate new plant off numbers. Paul you gotta be ready. We just we just didn't make enough place in. I have night hosts enough and on us. We wanna win games like you on the road. The packer defense. I mean we need to give ourselves a chance back hard and second half terrible mauvaise dickson young corners safety. How much how much did you have to communicate with them. More free snaps as opposed to aj and bryson just a little bit more. Wasn't anything crazy but you've got younger guys in there. You know you you to be able to communicate you gotta be able to be on the same page in the back then you gotta see routes same way that seat formations same way so guys out late as much football as as price in. Aj you've got to be able to communicate and that stuff shows you know especially when you're doing types of things we want you on defensively so it's not anyone guys collected You don't leave off one guy. Success dive on guys defense is eleven man you could have just been better all around as a unit to be able to help each other out. And like i said i keep harping on it but the truth new. We just not good enough to win. And that does not just mean around here forty years where the teams out. It seems like you're getting there. You guys are common but you're not quite area. How would you agree with that assessment. Or how would you assess your team. Yeah i think that's fair. I think you look at it. You know there are some times leave. We show that we're a football team all three phases. And then there's there's games where we just don't put it all together like this. One i asked and i'm talking from a defense standpoint. You're not gonna win any game plan. That's decent in the first half Second half law better but a lot of times in the league. You don't have you don't have you. Don't have that type of arms saying you can't always do that. You can't always expect to have type of game that we had to charge where you can come back. You know twenty four three win a football game. We going to do stuff like that. Weekend and week out in the nfl so appointed. Is you know we got to play a food game and just a lot of inconsistencies in in defensively figure out what can we do to star fast in keep that momentum you know the rest of the game so we can put ourselves in let me. This is philosophical question. You a lot of sports between the years in this particular year where you don't know whether you're going to practice or not maybe from day to day and don't know whether shelby harris and you have young guys coming. It isn't even more of a mental psychological challenge for this team and every team out. Sure that's not an excuse. That's just what it is. You know it's for. I think put in perspective and we're talking just outside of football. This is a this is a reality through for everyone avenue that everyone's trying to get right china filtered through his parents at home that are dues. The two were institute. Fan work in house on china figure out. How are we going to be able to work mike. His england school like mentally at the. That's become stressful. So not to compare. The two is a not comparable but football. You know you got wake up. Get ready to go axe castle. You gotta have morning meetings. I mean those are just things that the nfl's all about adjusting Adjusting it will just being able to go execute. You know this week. We had a couple of curve balls and we can't. We can't let that affect us on sunday. No you gotta go out. We gotta be able to be on top if we had a great week and those are some of the things that as as a young team you gotta learn you got to be able to do those things and you gotta be able to go him out. And that's just the reality. It's not like i said it's not an excuse as reality Weeks you're not gonna be able to practice and you've got to be out on sunday. Finally justin i guess. What's the emotional. Swing like when you do have the first half struggles you come out to get the big pick to start the second half and dobbins isn't able to do anything with it so i know you guys obviously continue to play second half but just kind of that emotional rollercoaster and not come away with anything after that pick. Yeah we talked about in the locker room defensively. We said like nope. No point fingers on us. We dug ourselves in this whole. We come back out here office to go down to score and we send us a halftime and we've got to be able to come out with the takeaway or a three and out to keep our momentum ought and we obviously answered with that and then you know the way it works is it happens. Office wasn't really do much with it and then right back out. It's hey this is our fault. We got we got to conceive. Can't just all once way we did our job and you know wrestling games on offense like now we got to continuously push this bringing the imposition with game. So you know there's that there's that roller coaster of emotions that the guys go through when when you leaders step up in say like not come back here same thing. We keep execute in the way that the prophecy justin earlier. You said that you guys didn't compete. Nearly as much as you could have ensured have and of course talking about the struggles early. Why do you think that's happening a that's a great question and it could be a handful of different things. I think i think the biggest to that is just being confident in what we're doing a play calling and in each other and there's like you said you know there's so many uncertainties that happened throughout the weekend. Just gonna keep an eye on that that it's not an excuse. Just reality when you're out there Your numbers pau. We gotta be able to step up as a union. Nowhere strengths are nowhere. Weaknesses are in execute s. Just the biggest thing you know best definitely something we're gonna at least myself go back and look at like why. What was the biggest difference. The first half in why we competed more in the second half like we can't have we can expect always be able to have game like we did against the the charters That's unrealistic expectations. We gotta be able to comment execute as defense get takeaways set off on a short field have some momentum changing lanes to set us up to be able to win among on kinda prolonging his answer. The long story short is. I'm not sure you know we just gotta be able to be more competitive. And like i said if it's a it's a start of the game thing that we need to address that leaders on defense that we needed farm get gone so we can sustain that. We do every monday after game. Taking you in this case not inside locker room near the locker room. Good stuff there from justin simmons. We're going to publicly here in one second of the gazette but i want to remind you about chug water chilly. It really is now chilly weather. That is not just an adjective to describe the changing weather but also chilly weather like to eat some chug water chilly. The spicer western life. You can find it at grocers near you but go to trump water dot com. Use my promo code jug. Water be to save twenty five percent. We chug water chilly just the other night. I imagine again this week with the weather. Changing because it really is awesome awesome stuff so chug water chilly dot com promo code chug water. Bk by paul klee on twitter from you can read them. Gazette dot com now is dot com. Which is still free through. Football season. Read his stuff and what he stuff and all the great stuff they have over to. They're gonna continue to grow that sports section to to really cover your teams in town specifically the broncos but not there's broncos as rockies and colleges by the way hat tip to see you big win to open their year so unc issue too big wins air force probably would've lost at army anyway but go nineteen kept them from travelling. We'll see they game rescheduled. They've got wyoming this week. It's doodoo the cowboys bounce back and see the boise. There's your little quick college football schedule only update but now here is my chat last night. On the broncos react overtime on koa With paul quick. Probably read what he. Let me ask you this question that brian who doesn't always have the best on our text line because he will inundate us with stuff but sometimes it's a really good question so and you can text to not just brian five six six nine now. But i'll ask you this question. What does drew lock need to do. In the final eight games of twenty twenty to ensure that he is the starter in two thousand twenty one. Besides just stay healthy well boy. That's a good one To me he's gotta be a heck of a lot better than he's been This was you know to have quarters of of the same. And i heard you talking earlier. This is a really good show by the way about the potential for a for a hurry. Up offense i tell you i could be wrong but i think that's the worst possible idea today. I think you're defense would have been crawling out of there with oxygen tanks. I i don't think if you go three and out three out a couple of times you're going to have a blow up on the sideline because the guys are playing on that side right now. They're not accustomed to playing that. The number of snaps demarcus walker james jones. Those guys probably take your highs and snaps today not to mention bassey. Those dudes so. I don't think that works today. Maybe that's something you look at down the road. But with walk there's way too much cutler. Going on there it's to me. It's likable jay cutler. Right back to the interception. How many times have we seen that from college. So that kind of thing. i mean. that's the one that really put you down because you said you had a shot at the end somehow someway. You had a shot. The boy that intersection was rough. Likable jay cutler jay cutler went to by my count in one pro bowl he was seventy four and seventy nine in his career completed sixty two percent of his passes so not that magical sixty five percent number but not below sixty thirty five thousand passing yards in a hundred and fifty three games so seven point one yards per attempt two hundred twenty seven thousand one hundred sixty point. Would you take that. That's a good question because then gets into the bigger quarterback conversation. And so i was doing this stuff for draftkings. I'll do these. Uh on draftkings have thing called the dream stream where they started in the pandemic. they kept it going everyday. Do this draftkings if you go to their youtube page on there once or twice a week if not more sometimes six seven times where we're just talking through a madden game computer verse computer. So we end up with a lot of downtime. because it's to computers playing you know computer simulation. And so we're talking quarterbacks and you and i've done this a lot and i give you credit. Maybe not as much on air for really turning me on russell wilson. And how great he is obviously. I've watched russell wilson but understanding his greatness and how you would have traded von miller a couple years ago for russell wilson. I thought you were crazy. But now the only people that i wouldn't trade for russell wilson are probably. The only person is probably patrick mahomes. Honestly that's unbelievable man getting better. But that's i want to the question but your guy. Russell wilson era rodgers. Patrick mahomes not briesen brady today. Not big ben today. yes all timeshare. You want a quarterback peyton manning falls into this category for sure that goes out and every sunday makes everybody around him better. And i don't know how. Many of those guys are jay. Cutler wasn't that to me. Jay cutler falls into the matt stafford ish matt ryan kind of category where we feel good about it on a sunday. There's only a handful of guys the guys. We just mentioned that would be an upgrade. But you're not sitting there going. We're definitely winning a championship with this guy. Now also add real quickly. There's only thirty five. Quarterbacks ever won a super bowl so there's that right i would take it right now. I would take it because the issues with color weather is here else where they were not really ability issues so much you know there. There's a lot of really from interceptions. It really bad times. And that's i think that's what we're seeing too much from your lock. But not ability would cutler i take it and then especially if everybody in the huddle. Everybody on the sideline likes him. That's that's like best case scenario with cutler But that's not what you ever got. So i i am I am quietly. Or i should say cautiously optimistic at what i saw today. And i'm probably coming from a different viewpoint but i haven't seen anything like jerry jeudy in lebron's you for him. He's unbelievable he. He looks like an absolute star to me and he went into a building. You have to think this was pretty important to him like he. He circled this one. Because this is going against julio jones. He's bama guy and calvin ridley standing there watching and he's watching and he's playing into place played. Sec championship games. He may have played a college football playoff game there and it just met you know like they say. Isn't it more to him and he was. He was pissed man. He was so upset about how that game went. After seven catches for one hundred twenty five yards so i liked that out of him and i'm all on the judy bandwagon. I liked what i saw there. I think no fancy stud cajun handlers. A lot better than people would have expected when he's healthy. So i actually took more positives out of this one. I didn't think there was any way in heck. They were gonna win over there now. That many guys down on the defensive side. 'cause matt ryan pretty much could've named a score for much of that game and i'm with you and we had a caller before the break rajiv in new york. He was on that same posit- positively bandwagon. And then i said i was gonna bring this point up. I know i brought up with you before. But john elway needs to be given credit for the way he's built this offense. Yes the line is always going to come under question until lloyd. Cushenberry is really entrenched. As a veteran looking center like matt paradis was condor government. Certainly know the the gold standard around. Here tom nalen. So we're not there yet. Garrett bowles will see what the future holds dalton rising there needs to be more consistent. Glasgow is is kind of what you thought he'd be and right. Tackle a whole different conversation. But jerry jeudy a first round pick certainly looking as good as advertised caja hamblur second round pick and getting involved in your jet sweep and around action. All of that stuff gets you excited. Courtland sutton we'll be back okay. So he's part of the conversation. Noah fant when his ankles not bothering him. Looks like first round tight end and then albert. Oh looks like a steel in the fourth round when his knees bother me. We'll find out what the details are there. So you have all these pieces and after lot can continue to progress and take real steps forward. You feel really good. And if he can either stops where he is or take a step back then if they trade for a sam darnold next year or find someone else trade for matt stafford and i don't. I'm not necessarily advocating for any of that. You've got don't say readymade offense ready made pieces not even mentioned the two running backs as of now. Melvin gordon be back next year and you think phillip lindsay will be so i think that team control of anyway. So there's that this offense is set up for long term success but you got consistency from you. Yeah yeah he's kind of he's the asterisk. You know to lock as the asterisk right now. He is I have trouble saying that word but everything else looks all right if he's good. There's your asterisk it all nothing. I guess that eight way midway through the season that's my takeaways that i'm not sure we're any closer to knowing true. Walk the quarterbacks here. For a long time. But what i have seen. Is you got some really stinking talented young players. You know not like good players like potentially great players. It's been since probably julius thomas those first couple of years since we've seen something like noah fant here and i like the big guy from missouri Denver's got a lot riding on zoo guys right now you know is that you got a rare with the nuggets. I just as a guy. I don't know if you yes there. It pains me. That worries me. I i it's okay. Drew lock likes. Give me a hard time. Because i wear my jaw face covering all the time. And he'll yell take that s off up. He doesn't he says the word like you said on our post game show but it's been bleeped now so when we play the drew lock interview back will not hear him. Say that Somebody threw this out here. Paul on the text line from the seven one nine. Can we just finished through lock experience and suck for lawrence. Here's what you can't do that. Because the jetson jags the jets and jags are already too too. Too far ahead of you was zero and one loss and even the giants at to the broncos zero three win washington and maybe even the the cowboys a look. I don't see the jets winning two games at any point so and do the jagr another one. Maybe with gardner. The you want to many games to get anywhere near the the trevor lawrence conversation so the current conversations about drew lock. He has eight games left to put the conversation to rest. And not just give you the off season. Like the broncos had this past season where they weren't looking at a quarterback i guess. Let me ask you this then. Let's final thing for you. Put your prediction cap on. We'll drew lock play well enough in these final eight games because when you look at at the matchups. Now with the raiders stealing a windy day and with the dolphins going into arizona. And they've got you've got a five and three miami team of five into saints team on the horizon as well. You've got eight and one. Kansas city carolina at three and six got buffalo at seven and two and other charges and then raiders at the end. So some good teams in there. We thought you steal wind or take wins. Easily is drew. Lock going to show us enough in these final eight games that we have a similar offseason alaska where it's all about continuing to build and grow around your lot. I think he will. I think ultimately he will be good enough that you've got you know. Do round two of the audition. Because that's what this is. This is just a season-long edition for them as it as it looks right. Now you're gonna be kinda in the middle of pack thing about these guys. They got a lot of issues. They play really hard. And it's going to be hard to necessarily tank with these guys because they they do go very hard. Even you know bassey. He had some tough times today. I like that guy in my corner. I don't know if. I want to be one of my top three quarters that i like it on my corner. They go pretty hard. The bottoms not gonna fall out of this thing is what i'm saying. I don't think you're going to be in that conversation for top-five type tick now you keep losing guys like you have There's no bottom the missing so many good players right now. I think it's hard to get a true evaluation of what that defense can be. The issue is is the asterisk and all those other guys around him. You give him the keys to the kingdom. I you couldn't want more if you're a young quarterback this is such a perfect situation. It's all andrew are. This is big opportunity to make so much money. We can't even imagine it. But we haven't seen him do it yet. That's popped so fingers crossed. The broncos will bounce back next week when they take on the raiders. Tomorrow likely gonna talk to rick lewis from this morning. Shell logan and louis and of course. Color analyst on the broncos radio network. We tend to talk to him on tuesdays as long as i can track them down typically late monday or maybe even early tuesday but that is the plan is to talk to rick later in the week and and tracked down. J t the brick behind enemy lines about this impressive raiders. Team that at five and three is certainly playing better than i thought they would be especially considering they didn't have either starting tackle in sunday's game to go into l. a. and beat the chargers chargers did have a chance to win and herbert made a heck of a thorough late but Parham wasn't able to come home Come down with it. And that was that so i appreciate listen. Sun will come up tomorrow in theory. Maybe snowing but the broncos fans this is about building towards something. You're not winning the super bowl this year. Is there enough that you see from drew. Lock that john elway wants to keep him vic. Fangio landscaping broncos country wants to keep him.

November 6- Hour 2 Brian Howell, Buffs Beat Writer | Cody Roarke, Pro Football Network

"The football friday town colorado state defense the bronze. Here's a radio. Five minutes after the second and final hour of the week here and man football friday just rock and roll an excellent first hour. We heard from a head coach. Steve adagio on the border war victory. Manny sounded tired though. I can't imagine. I bet they i left at eleven. I would imagine he didn't get to sleep until who knows me knows head coaches. I would imagine their brains are constantly going on. So yeah what a what a win last night. Now we look to the weekends and it's starting to get interesting here and joining me now. We're gonna talk a little. Ucla see you here in a moment but brian. How great friend of the program of buffer zone brian. Great to catch up with you. My friend yes. Nice to talk to you and Must be there football. We finally got a busy football friday. We've been doing it for a while. But all we had broncos really and now you know last night we get a recap something. We've got a couple of previews locally so yeah starting to feel somewhat normal i guess yeah somewhat although i do use the term that people like throw around. I'm cautiously optimistic. You know especially as we see new coming up this hour. That utah and arizona is cancelled two pac twelve guinean out of the six that are cancelled now so Until they actually lineup. And i'm actually at a stadium watching football teams out there in front of me. I'm not gonna get too excited. Yeah so what do you know about the arizona. Utah situation and again cancel you. We're not put. We're not really postponing these games. Ri- word worked. Just cancelling them. They're they're done right. Yeah they have. The patch didn't have any window of opportunity to reschedule. So i think these these guys are just done but It sounds like this one. Was you know the cow situation's different because that was one positive face that a group that was quarantined that per county rules. They went on allowed to participate and so there was salt lake. It's you know. The cases are so high out there the other half of that game so i don't think it's more of an issue on the team as it is in the in the community there. So it's it's certainly going to be an issue. Cases are rising all around. And we'll see what happens with getting these games in. Yeah and i know Here here locally for us. Brian we were. We were slated to do some do a high school football game in fort collins and of course. We're we're getting news. We're kind of waiting on some of that right now but getting news more and more high school football games are being are being canceled or or maybe talks rescheduling at this point. Yeah like really central. Scancen games and Yeah it's it's a week to week and kind of a a day thing and so We'll see as of right now the buster scheduled to play ucla tomorrow and And that that long drought of no no football and no competition at all so. I'm hoping it happens. We'll see if it does it's It's so crazy brian. Before the before the rams game against fresno state you know it just didn't seem real to me it was. I don't really know what to expect. You know who really cares this. Just watch the football game and enjoy it. I you know whoever wins and lose once you actually get into the game a much. Different kind of feels like okay. We're watching football again. And now we want to see this team. Make some noise in their conference. I kind of feel the same way about c. You like you said until we see them out on the field. It's hard for me to start building a base this season about what to expect with with new coach. Karl terrell and company. Yeah and you know we kind of every year we go in and say well. We think they're gonna be this and then you never know like this year. It's really hard to tell what his team going to be like. And i you know for me. I sort of have the perspective that you mentioned right before that. I i she games. I just wanna watch football But at some point see us gotta start showing You know we're we're making progress as a program things like that but as of right now i think the just let's get on the field and then just see what kind of product we have here under karl Strange season already So you need your leaders. You need your guys. Your performer saw a tough blow with running with the running back situation with alex. Fong no out for this game for sure. A few games. Maybe the rest of the season we do. How much do we know about that. Brian not much Carlson pretty tight lipped on what we do know. He's out this game and when we asked him about it they wouldn't say what. The injury is but He basically said you know. We're hope to have them ready. That's the season we're getting ready for next year. So that tells me that you know. It's very possible he doesn't play this year. I mean it is only the season's over in six weeks right hasn't started yet. It's over in six weeks so that's not very much time to get healed Certainly not like twelve thirteen or fourteen weeks like a normal season so that window of opportunity is is less usually as and so you know. I don't know we'll see him or not this week for sure. Yeah talk to us a bit about about. The quarterback situation was sam. Neue earning the job. that transition back to the quarterback position safety. I i think that's such an intriguing story. I mean i'm curious to see how it works out but i always like seeing. I think it's fun. You know seeing a position player changed positions but especially agai changing from a certain position on defense to the quarterback position. Yeah it's interesting you know. He's such a unique situation that he's really. Oh i've seen something out great. We have a safety plan quarterback. Well not really. You really had a quarterback trying to year so now he was a quarterback his whole life and It was really. I think when tucker made that move last year. I think it was more of the facts that you need it. Some death to safety than it was and and a diamond on your quarterback you know the bus were set with stephen mantegazza blake. I'm so they were okay. But they didn't have any depth safety and so You know here's a very good athlete. And they said well. We think he can do this. So it was kind of a natural was get on the feeling kodak anyway and now i mean. He said he kept throwing throughout the season. So he's never lost that but now he's backing quarterbacking. The kind of where he's very. Yeah we'll see how that one plays out for sure. I'm curious to see 'cause obviously going to need. Need help from his tight. Ends is wide receivers. Katie nixon. Returning thirty five receptions four hundred sixty five yards three touchdowns brady russell expecting some big things from him. So there's gonna be some pressure on them early on with sam kind of get readjusted and then the running back situation. You gotta feel this pressure on unproven guys like nixon russell. I think so. And i don't feel running back to. They have good talent. they're they're pretty deep even without finding now so they could be okay. I think the offensive line is more talented than deepen. It's been a long time. So i think there's people rab can help him. But certainly you want katie. Nixon daniel dmitri stanley guys like that stepping up and helping them out. I would imagine they're going to try to do some kinda short path. News things like that to get sam dolan but But we'll see how he needs those guys album out. Yeah talking to us brian. hal from the Co buffer zone Look at this game this weekend. Against between you and ucla. How about the defensive side though. Brian i don't you expect i mean with so many returning star starters and stars quite frankly this you defense should be pretty good this season. Yeah i think so. And statistically they would last year but they've got a lot better season along and they've got. I think it's sixteen guys. The played at least two hundred sixty snaps coming back plus their defensive coordinator so i liked the piece that has. I'm not sure they're going to be you. Know the best defense in the pac twelve but they can be a top half of the pack twelve deputy cents and then play a lot better than they do last year if they do that. That's going to take some pressure off of neue and lilos. He plays as well. Yeah no question about it Expecting big things. From of course nate landman and mustafa johnson. I said things chip kelly. You know he's known for this high powered offense all the time but we haven't really seen that since the since he got to over to the. Ucla doesn't quite have the athletes that he had up at oregon It's been a slow go. They've only seven games in two years. You i'm not expecting a big turnaround for ucla this year. They do have a good quarterback enduring. It sounds around so they have a couple of nice players on offense but you know a lot of holes on defense. Got some holes on offense. And i just don't see a great team. Yeah but their quarterback your third year starter. So that's always dangerous and could be a big factor in this game. Yeah complete opposite of where where the buffs are right. They have their guy. They're established guy so Who do you give the nod to this. One brian again. I know this This time is very difficult more so than ever to make predictions. But what do you think well you know. This is a year where allow people are not optimistic. You know but it hasn't dampened mine. I'm going to try to stay optimistic. The i i don't think either team is great but i think the soggy and the edge being at home knows no crowd I think they win. Kind of a slugfest. Twenty seven twenty three twenty seven twenty three. I like brian appreciate. Hey what are you working on. Getting some pre-game stuff for us throughout the weekend that we can check out as we get set for the buffs game stuff. I'm not getting these guys ready for the game. And then just kind of looking at the match between the boston bruins and the women's basketball join as well right now. We have not for me are also comes as well. 'cause they're they're not ready to start to their like couple of weeks away so you know. It's an unusual start after this year. Yeah no it's it's hard to track everything because some football teams have played a good chunk of their schedule summer. Just starting and then you've got basketball right around the corner it's gonna be fun to To track and of course you have to wonder. Will there won't they. You know who's gonna actually play throughout the course of the week. So yeah it's it's all very interesting. Yes it is and we'll see if there's a game tomorrow and and if there's a seven game this year i don't know we'll find out brian appreciate you man and we'll talk to you. We'll we'll check out your stuff this weekend. we'll light. We'll hope to catch up with you next week. Thanks appreciate it. I mean that's brian. How tough zone and sixteen minutes after the hour were bust right through this football friday. We're going to go. Broncos falcons preview will start getting into that next cody roar from pro football networks. Going to go to join us will break down. He'll break down what the film shows us at least when it comes to that corner. Play for the broncos. It's been a strong strong suit for them this year. But you're going up against the atlanta team. That's number two in passing offense so you really hope that. Aj boy is good to go. He get bryce callahan. Rookie michael ojemudia clicking on all cylinders. We'll be right back sixteen minutes after the hour. The whole show powered by energy live from the collision specialist studios catch inside up there. Dan presented by chris. Musa agency allstate. Insurance tuesday nights northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi que no code now. Weekdays at four. Another in colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi this is. Michael medved the men's basketball coach. The colorado state rams. You're listening to the hall. Show on thirteen ten ks a fax You know. I don't like to brag but another thursday night special locked and loaded got taken care of. I called the packers to beat the niners. I called the cover. They did thirty four to seventeen. But my goodness davante. Adams is a freak of nature ten receptions one hundred seventy three yards and a touchdown and boy. Aaron rodgers didn't disappoint four touchdowns in that game over three hundred yards. So heck of a game for the packers. Packers moved to six n two. I'll bust into the more on the nfl side game. Some of my favorite games. Outside of broncos falcons but more importantly we gotta look at that. Broncos falcons game coming up this weekend cody roy. Joining us broncos insider talent over at pro football network. Cody my friend. Always look forward to these chats We got a lot to get into before we can even get into the film before the xs and os. We gotta figure out who's actually going to be on the field this weekend. Yeah right now. Not looking so good for shelby harris. He's more than likely not going to be playing in this game. So that means that The sean williams silvester williams mckelvin regime demarcus walker draymond jones. Those guys are going to get a little bit more run this week and is vic fangio said they're going to be prepared and he believes they're gonna play well so yeah i mean going in is obviously a big blow losing shelby harris asia. Boy you still questionable right now still has to go through some Concussion protocol of ronco. Saco vic fangio mentioned today that like i if it's looking like he's not on the same track that phillip lindsay was last week but that doesn't mean that he's out yet so we're just waiting final word which will probably come either tonight or tomorrow. It'll be interesting. They'll definitely need if they can get a major boy. Tough tough passing. Attack with the falcons for sure what we know exactly about shelby harris though was is he testing positive. Is it more of a contract. Tracing what do we know a lot of details. They're just yet. Yeah so she'll she'll be was near somebody who had tested positive and he reported it to the team right away. The team medical staff and they went through the process got put on the reserve list. Went through contact tracing. Have you not seen nothing inside the building. And he's isolated where he's had negative tests all week long never tested positive. So that's good on his part. Just i don't know anymore brady out of the. Nfl works because chris jones also came into close contact with somebody else and all of a sudden. He's still playing. You know on sunday. I just don't understand it. So yeah i mean it's just it's i guess it's just a little different ways that the nfl handles it. I i just can't keep up with it anymore. Yeah i mean honestly cody. It's it's way different than it was broncos patriots week right i mean he had a couple of cases and then we moved that game and the broncos basically. We're told the hey by the way that was your bye week. Hope you enjoyed Now we're not seeing that as much. We're seeing cases but we're kind of just ignoring them saying it'll be okay it. It just seems weird to me. Yeah no i really does. And i don't know if it's because chris jones is perennial all pro player. I don't know if that's the case. But yeah i mean i think the nfl just every week it seems like. There's a new inconsistency that kind of pops up and all questioning is you know. Are they doing the right process. But i guess they are. You know it's just unfortunate. The broncos are going to be without their argue. Either best defensive player this week but you know other guys are going to have to step up your shelby harris argument one of their better defensive players. I mean harris has been has been stellar all season long so i mean that that is going to be a tall task. When the broncos they're desperate for w.'s. Right now they want. They want to climb back to that five hundred mark. Yeah they do and they have a good chance to do it this week. To know i think the atlanta falcons. They're a lot better than the record indicates and so i think a lot of people are overlooking at now defensively. They're one of the bottom ranked defense. Is they allow a lot of yards per game. They allow a lot of points per game. you know. But i think the denver's really gonna have to get some big defensive stop and if they can move the ball downfield and convert in the red zone. Where the falcons they give up red zone points. Seventy four percent of possessions by opponents bloggers got to capitalize on that. And i think with phillip lindsay. Gordon healthy tim. Patrick is going to be back in the lineup. More than like this week. I think it bodes well for the broncos chances. Talk to us a little bit about what you saw with drew lock last week. You know that first half it's it's it's rough. I mean there's no other way to put it looked bad. You saw broncos country all over twitter's freaking out and then suddenly something clicks code. You've watched a lot of football. You break broken down a lot of football games. how much of that. Fourth quarter comeback was was okay chargers going into that strange preventive defense or was this drew lock showing us what the real drew lock is going to be or is the true somewhere in between well. I think there's it's a combination of all what you just mentioned now. Thinking about the first half is that we nothing really changed with the chargers defense except you know. They lost joey bosa for the last. You know last quarter there But primarily they were sending three to four rushers every play they. Were you know all the defensive backs were playing back. And i really think it started for denver. They struggled on first down. That was an area where they were just not consistent. They're going backwards. Or they had a second down where they're going backwards. And then you face a third and long or a third medium and denver just wasn't converting on those and that was really the biggest issue so for drew lock was hit. The baby passes what he did. I mean drew. A when i go back on that film you know. There's times where he'll take his drawback he'll stay to the left side and he won't look to his right so he's going to have to continue to work on. That continued to improve going through his reads progression in the field. And i think a lot of that came in that fourth quarter. It was just a different sense of urgency. In the broncos offense and i think it was spring boarded by phillip lindsay but i think for denver to be successful. You know this upcoming week. They're going to have to not put themselves in those situations and make some of those mistakes early on. Yeah you said it. There was a cop. I mean that was one of those comebacks where if everything had to go perfectly and of course it started julia. It came down to the second right so everything had to go perfectly. Phillip lindsay started with that run Man what what does that run. Obviously it's big for the offense. But then we're hearing justin. Simmons sees that play his looking his defense going. All right now we just have to go out and get some stops. That's motivating this entire team. Well i would tell you this too. I mean i think the defense had a different mentality to them. Obviously think bryce callahan's interception. I mean we talk about lindsay's touchdown being springboard but buys callahan's interception actually gave them the victory in my opinion because l. at that point is already in field goal range because drew lock threw interception play prior. So you know it's just it's a crazy accumulation of how things went for that game. But kareem jackson hit that he had on the running back. I think it was a big tone center in the broncos. Defense the rest of the way. They had more confidence down the stretch. And i think that was something that really played well for them and then the offense got going as well based on how quick scoring play. That's exactly what the broncos needed. Yeah no i love. The you mentioned kareem jackson. I love seeing defense is maybe it's one guy. Maybe it's a handful of guys guys just with this nasty attitude bad dude it just means. He's he's nasty when he's out on the field and man i'll tell you. This cody was an offensive player. And i saw him out there. I think i'm going the other way. Yeah no absolutely. If i was running for president my smoking would be football. Violent would like because cream jackson. He's a guy that plays a he seeking missile. They're a bunch of charters fans that were trying to say he was playing. That's not the case if anyone wants to talk about being dirty. What about involved. Joseph last playoff game the pat at. I mean he threw down. Patrick morris injured him and he may miss the rest of the season. So i mean. I i get divisional games. Have a lot of juice to them. But you know you got to play better than that. And i think for the denver broncos. This was a good win that they needed and now they have a chance to go five hundred this week can't question about it and you get this win. Suddenly i mean the the idea of playoffs is kind of a reality. at kodiak. i think these charged. The chargers games are always interesting for the last couple of years. The broncos have won those games were at least maybe their seasons not dead. The question will be. How do you follow that up. And certainly some games coming up here in these next three or four games Where the broncos could put themselves in a great position. What is the film show you. I know you broke down. Aj boy you really breaking down this this the the defensive backs and how they're doing man they're going to need to be on top of their game against this falcons passing attack this weekend. Absolutely i mean any time. I mean the broncos. This is the third week enrolled of playing one of the nfl's top offense altogether And the thing that stands out in this game is colin. Ruby has over six hundred yards receiving. He's got six touchdowns. Julio jones has five hundred each got two touchdowns and todd got eight touchdowns as a running back. The fourth leading rusher in the national football. This is a very good offense. Now i think the story line. For the atlanta falcons is that there is not a very good defensive team so for denver being on the road you always have to have the mindset that you're already down fourteen points and i think the one thing that's going to determine where this team is going to go is for drew lock right what what drew lock is gonna show up as you're going to be the competent guy that can throw it across the middle field. I think that's the case. I think the broncos would be good but defensively united mention what the wide receivers ever gonna be tested in asia. Boy it can't play. I think that's going to be massive. Yeah i know you want to see all those guys out there. Were getting a taste of that more and more but getting all three of those guys out there is certainly is a huge boost for the broncos. Defensively you said it there on the offensive side drew lock. Let's see what kind of guy he's going to be. What do you see as far as tight. End noah fant albert okwuegbunam. Are we going to see multiple setups. Now we're both of those guys are in. yeah. I think you're gonna see a lot more of it. As the season progresses. I mean drew. It mentioned it yesterday that you know. They like the combination out of twelve personnel. But for alvarado. He's earning more reps. And i think what the injuries the broncos tight end right now. You can't help us out to a man lineup with those two guys in there And i think as albert gets a lot more comfortable as the season progresses. You're going to see him. Be target a lot more. What you think defenses are starting to pick up on which i think. That's where drew lock has to go through. He's gotta hit those other guys. Yeah spread that ball out. Man i tell you what gordon lindsay i keep saying it every week and we see it. You know we kind of embarrassed. We don't get to see them both on the in the line up in the second half because somebody's hurt gordon situation but i still feel like cody that at once. We get this thing going and consistency spells out for these two. I feel like they're gonna keep rising in the charts as far as the team stats in the rankings. In the rush offense. Yeah you know. I think that's that's one of the cases. I've always been a big believer of thinking that their offense needs to be identity. Their identity needs to be rushing. The football and i think they have the personnel to. Do it You know it's gonna be a big test week no grande blackout once again. But you're going to have austin sean mcvay right guard. Grady jarrett there at the interior often. defensive line those guys are gonna have to step up big. So i think denver's try to stretch some of their place to the outside and be able to capitalize maybe trap trade. I mean grady. Jarrett a little bill on a trap play be able to kick him out and then get up and you know the problem. I see here brady. Is that when you look at a team like atlanta with great jerry lineup and zero technique head up on lloyd cushenberry. They'll slant him one of their very fast enough. Let inside backers that to me i think is where the broncos will be tested and in terms of being able to run the football and also being able to pass it You mentioned to you know the potential about playoffs or we'll denver's get into a very important stretch here where they're playing a lot of divisional games right. Next week's going to be the. Las vegas raiders. And then you've got to play the raiders. At the end of the season i play. The chargers wants more. You're gonna play the chiefs. Wants more winning those divisional games going to be huge in terms of tiebreakers especially at the end of the season once. That season comes around if denver could get to the happy spot about that seventh seeded team. They do have a chance to win it but they also have to hope that a couple of other teams lose along the way. But i think this is a team that is still growing. They're trying to find their identities. They get more guys back healthy. I think they're going to be in a better position. Yeah no question. We're starting to see guys can get put back in installed into this into the lineup. And that's certainly helped. I think with the confidence and man. What a what a great outing. It wasn't at fourth for pretty much. Everybody i mean you're seeing everybody get involved. It was nice to see. Hamilton was nice. Decay j with that game. Winning touchdown pass. That's a fun offense when drew lock can kind of get everybody involved. You see them going more fast. Paced style offense like we saw late in that game. They should we believe they should now. If they don't come out you know. I think the issue run into you could go up tempo from the very beginning. But you have to get a rhythm i and so i think if you don't have a rhythm you tried to go up temple it's not gonna work. The broncos could get into a little bit of a rhythm then go up tempo. Then i think it plays well to the personnel that they have the faith you know obviously the lineups and also being able to get it to where the guys on the other side of defensively don't have time to sub and i think for denver. They do have the ability to do it. I think we're going to see a little bit of it on sunday. Yeah should be a lot of fun like you said to five hundred men. Then you get broncos country really excited for the next few games cody. What are you working on for us. My friend that we can check out the next couple of days. We got the film room on youtube. Cody work in nfl. Plus lockdown broncos every single day. Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday on your favorite podcast provider. Make sure you guys check it out.

Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six colfax. It's gonna be a crazy week in the nfl. looking forward. To broncos falcons butto. Yeah let's look at the my favorite games outside of denver and atlanta. Well this one looks pretty good. Looks promising anyway. The six in one seattle seahawks make their way to orchard park taking on the buffalo bills the bills six into some big big test for buffalo. You know obviously russell wilson for many. He's the mvp for me. He's close but josh l. Pre ice quarterback now. He's not. He's not an mvp caliber. He's not. He's not a elite right now. But he's a solid quarterback he's thrown for sixteen touchdowns and obviously having devin singletary back. There has been really nice. From ninety three carries turner eighty five yards and a touchdown. This game to me should be really good. Seattle's favourite by three in this game. So like i said seattle they For the most part they keep games pretty damn close. They have a lot of work to do defensively especially against guarding the pass. But i love this offense. And i think russell wilson you know listen few save patrick mahomes the mvp russell. Wilson's the mvp. You probably not wrong at least at this stage okay. Next game ravens colts the culture. Five and two. I don't know why i'm so surprised by that. philip rivers. he's a he's been okay but they just they have some weapons. They have a lotta guys stepping up baltimore. Obviously lamar jackson throwing the ball okay. But he's ran for four hundred eleven yards and two touchdowns get this. The ravens are only favored in this one by a point and a half. So maybe this game's going to be pretty good. The colts kind of have a proven type game. They've been all right so far and five and two But yeah. Philip rivers seems to be seemed to be pretty happy with his his situation at least at this point all right ending out the week. This one's interesting to me. Big big divisional battle here. Saints buccaneers tampa bay six into. Will we see antonio brown this weekend. The bucks are favored by four and a half points. Saints are still very powerful offense. It's going to be a sunday night. Game very excited about that one to boot. How about the monday night game. patriots jets. That's that's tough one. But the pats need this one desperately. It's not a game. I'm looking forward to by the way. I'm just adding it because i couldn't help but see that the the monday night game adding that we're carrying on. Kfi on monday is patriots jets. The pats are a seven point favorite in that one. And we'll see if cam newton get right bill. Bill check pretty adamant about no. He's our quarterback he's our guy. She loves cam newton so far though the patriots the bill a check. Tom brady debate. Tom brady's destroying that right. Brady's doing it with tampa bay. And that whole antonio brown thing. I mean colfax. You kind of went off on this last week. Talking about you know the patriots situation and maybe that was about tom. Brady pulling the strings there and and trying to get antonio brown there. Well here. He is in tampa bay. So it's looking like it was all tom brady. Does that mean does that. Kind of point is a clue towards tom. Brady is pull at the patriots organization. Maybe the fact because on tonio brown doesn't fit the mold of what you think bella check would be looking right now. Neither does draw krill. Either drunk retired though and then came back. Once he found out tommy going to tampa bay and now gronk there so yeah kind of just goes to show you how much poll brady had and craft. Was you know whatever you say tom. We're gonna do it did that. Did something changed in the last year or two where it was more about. Bill check Not not quite sure but yeah this this is an interesting one. I mean braun lived with brady stint with the patriots. He lived with. Tom brady then and then obviously screwed up again. It couldn't get it right. Well now we're hearing staying with brady again and Antonio brown i mean he has nothing but amazing things to say about tom and how he's learning from him as a man that's a. That's a heck of a risk for tom brady. Patriots don't usually take those kind of risk right. Pat's they did it with attorney brought last year. But maybe it's because they knew this was brady's last year. Let's try to do the brady moss thing again and see if we can get one more super bowl out of this thing before we off the part ways we can suffer through. Antonio brown's antics for half a season didn't work out but it proves that brady's counter the one taken the risk that bucks or six into i have them going to the super bowl this year. Brown is if i mean. If he can be at that level he was before he kinda you know. Lost it a little bit. Then you got you're looking at arguably the best receiver in the game. He was at the point he when he was at his at his peak. So if you can get that guy that it's going to be talked about as wow what a what an absolute huge huge risk reward the bucks find a way to make it and make the best out of it. But i'm a. I'm very intrigued by this. You know because. This is a risk for tom. Brady both both professionally and personally. I mean he's in your senior house and brown. It's not like he just was on ary either you know. He was doing bad things he was doing some me through what a tv out. His window almost hit a kid. Obviously some tweety said about about women and just a lot of crazy things. This guys done where you could borderline. Say kind of dangerous to be around. So tom brady see something in this guy and listen. I'm all about second chances. And you know honestly even more chances if you can really get to the heart of the problem and maybe maybe getting there. Maybe he is maybe not. I'm not holding my breath. But it's certainly a risk for tampa bay and we'll see if it pays off. Broncos falcons are colfax next. I'll get to my three keys to victory for the broncos what they need to do. Listen the broncos have put together some nice ws and. I know you're going to argue and celebrate not against that that greater teams and the jets and the patriots. But this is where they are the three and four. They've won three out of their last four games. They have an opportunity to get back to five hundred. And make that raiders game absolutely crucial so love. It hate it. Come up with an excuse. Whatever the broncos have an opportunity to become relevant in the nfl playoff race. We'll get to the keys to the game next. You're listening to the hall's show powered by pdc energy and thirteen ten kfi. Brady will be back after the break. Dan patrick the whole show and colin coward or northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi a hey out gets andrew's coach boeing denver nuggets. And you're listening to the whole. Show thirteen ten ks k full article out the duct the national guard. We need admitted. Maybe we are killing me. You don't play you for answering the prayers about this crime kick. The ball ran best in the united states. Tonight on hold teams business. Those businesses weekly them. The broncos falcons this weekend and denver looks to make it four out of the last five one three two. The last four. Obviously coming back and beating the charger somehow some way. They took care of the patriots. A few weeks back and and the jets and i know looking back at it. You're saying well looking to be a pretty bad team. Although three weeks four weeks ago the smart guys over nfl network and espn. We're saying hey babe. The patriots are going to be a threat in the afc. Well cam covid and everything changed now. I don't think get quite works like that but you know what fine. Some people obviously have some long term deals to deal with. I don't really think we should be saying that's the excuse for it. I just. I don't know that the patriots are there. Broncos found a way to get it done didn't look great but they did obviously get smoked by the chiefs. I saw some good things against the chiefs defensively and yeah but the chiefs ultimately got away with three points in. Obviously some of that wasn't just the offense so we can't see a repeat of that game broncos in that first half. We talked about it all week. If if drew lock continues to go down that trajectory in the first half where he's struggling he's missing while open receivers. He's too quick to roll out of the pocket. Then we would be having a very weird conversation this week about the future of the quarterback position but as espn noted. The best time to quarter goes to drew lock meaning when they needed it. The most true log did it when his career needed at the most is young career he found a way to overcome. And instead we're talking about the heroics of drew lock. Well that could all be thrown back into the trash again. If the broncos can't follow it up and find a way to beat the falcons who much better than the record shows. But i think the broncos are better team keys to success number one drew lock you gotta come out and be much better in the first half. Trust your line. I know it's tough over the last two three years that they've been bad she had trusted offensive line. Stay in the pocket. Cl- step up into the pocket. Find receivers find your tight ends defensive back. Plays number two i don't know. Aj boy is going to go or not. He was picked on last week against the chargers. You have the second best passing attack in the nfl. And the falcons michael ojemudia. You're a rookie. I know you gotta be. You gotta be expected to be better. But that's them's the breaks right. Bryce callahan you gotta be special to and more another one on the defensive side of the ball force matt ryan and make him uncomfortable back there. Bradley chubb me. Read get after the quarterback you probably getting your without shelby harris. That's a big blow to this team. Get those things done. And i think the broncos moved to a five hundred record. That's going to do it for us. Good night northern colorado.

NFL Week 3 + Best Bets & More !!

"Yes, Vegas. Vegas Y guy. Roundtable. Left the vague is you see that? There's a podcast I sent you the link and it was talking about you in it analyzes various podcasts and I sent you the Lincoln vague. They said the vague what a great nickname. Did you see that I did yeah I liked it the vague Mattie hold cockroaches. Sore. Major. To My right licking his wounds, not as chops his. To hear how he did on his picks dead. And now it's in his head. Before the show, we were saying, Steve Let's look at some of your hot takes before the season started and we go okay Jaguars Tanking O. K. Josh Allen Stinks. Aaron Rodgers is what did you have any rodgers ranked twelfth? and. Tom Brady stinks now brady he might be a little ahead of the game he's downgraded Brady. Had Collar Murray ranked on his quarterback rankings. Before the season twenty seven, what was it? Twenty? Seven low twenty s What were you thinking? Because there was people giving him MVP money. I'm not saying you have to agree but like what was your take on that? I have a bias against the younger quarterbacks. Don't move every put but every quarterback that's broken through has been in the second year right recently mahomes Lamar Jackson Shimmer last chack he'd Daschle's Allen Yeah Well Dad was working. Right. Yeah. But but you could make the case collar. Murray. Had A good rookie year a good learning the first four games. Yeah. But then when we said that he goes. It's well documented that I had a I was wrong about those things. That mean. I'm okay it's one week. Oh, I mean, we were talking about your high taste. Do you not WanNa talk like should we just ignore them now how? How would we go about it? Now we should talk about him. We will. Sell Ta. I am I want you to be honest. because. Here's the thing you are I. Think Agendas. You have generous spirit off air. You're tough on air. Yes. You're very concerned about your. You're thinking it's always a brand fact thing instead of just understanding just being yourself now maybe you're. About. But You're don super forthcoming with compliments. We agree with that. Okay. We agree with that. I, think. That when they're earned. Every like the Great Santini Tight Dad has always said like you know I'm discerning. But let's be on is you look at me someone that gets a lot of accolades and you're like, you don't want to necessarily overly feed into that. Now off air you are as good. You know a good of business friend is I can hope for on Air Taciturn. I don't think taciturn has ever gotten a lot of. Great. All right. So I want to I want you to. Tell Your Truth Dodds on how somehow some way with the garbage that was given the lines that was forced into phases. Oh. My God. fezzes pick on the vikings that I got us a three into I. Want you just give me your thoughts on that with understanding people judge you right now you're going to be honest or you're going to be particularly negative. I thought you certainly navigated some. Choppy, waters What about you? I want to apologize to the pre-game team, the listeners and I got tired of theme music. Here. I'm. Proud. Eagles I like the Egos I can't you like the. I like the lines I can't lie. Had the Vikings I did a switcheroo. A lot of people on twitter were complaining. Let's just say that. Until the game. There's the old wrestling saying Bruce Prichard says. He's the W W. Slash. E Guy that does a podcast. Bruce Richard Yeah something harass away. He's back with the WWE, but he still does that part with Conrad. Thompson is. says. He'll give a big story of Richard's brother Love Right Yes yes I bet you didn't know I could pull that out of that and that is impressive. But we we did a podcast with him him and. Conrad about a year and a half ago. and. It was the end of day apartment. It was it's a great pod. He's out there. He actually recorded this for me. Down Jose Pronouns Pal. One of the vents man used to have or has is he never likes to say he she he it's like if you're now it's in, it's the junkyard dog or so and so so handicappers are always day them that you know. So he recorded special for me he used to say, and then the bell rang, which was like all the crap and everything, but you had to do something in the ring. People were mad until kickoff then they weren't so mad. Yeah I'm feeling good. So seven three. I think that there's actually one nine and one. And then there's a couple others ahead of us we're like maybe. Only maybe five people ahead of us right now. We're right where we need to be Yeah I. Mean Listen You love their be undefeated but. I didn't feel like we were all locked in I. It's like to me this wasn't a particularly. I, we get. We were I. Felt we were I. Don't know if there was another winner on our card 'cause I would have went Kansas City next. I like Kansas City and I would have went bears next or check that giants but they ended up covering giants giants on my circle that would have been me back door. I was losing for a while they got there at the end I could have had that winner but I'm not sure we had another winner after that, right? I don't think so and and the randomness of that bears giants endgame was just truly remarkable. Let's give credit. We give them he is. You did. Your first pick. So you're so what was your Mackenzie his? Actual Best Best Bat. The second one because I did push the button on him was the raiders writers. So actually you went to no on your best pads, but we all like the raiders you get credit for that and your first one was Arizona to in a weird way fezzet getting a lot of heat but he's he's put up a two and I remember when he count both those count. For him for him. But Let's just say this and three. Let's keep going. We're going to do something slightly different this week we're going to run through all these injuries I. so that's on over talk it. Any observations has point value I'll read that and we'll just start talking to we're GONNA. Go in reverse order. Some of these injuries are longer term some for the season some are week to week we start with Jimmy G.. Interesting. The better quarterbacks are worth seven points Jimmy. G.. Four points? What's the rationale? Nick mullins a above average backup quarterback that really good year in two thousand eighteen last week he had a Qbr of to against the jets and not a good. Mop Up duty for him but you know small sample in the second half. How many plays that he? was he in their family passes like ten? Okay. Yeah some. Enough to be not insignificant but you know then obviously the forty niners had a big lead, Jimmy Teas, my eighteenth rated quarterback. So big you love the Johnston and yeah, I did well, we thinking again injuries. Injuries what an Francisco's keep receivers I thought that the jets would be able to get this I. my handicap was San Francisco would not be able to throw the ball and they're run. The jets would be able to stop because just had a really good run defense last year the very first play Rj, I kid you not most when eighty yards against the jets the first play. Funny. Is and this is worth looking at let's get mattie on Jimmy G. I and he thought. I. Wonder if it compounds the fact, Jimmy G. that they have so many other injuries there's no team that has a longer injury report in the National Football League the San Francisco Forty niners. So when the rest of your team is more injured doesn't your quarterback become more of a focus? So you're saying, his absence would be more important. No one out there to pick up the slack look we all talk about Houston how bad their oster is. But because the Sean Watson's they are people tend to WANNA back Houston and it's more important that to Shawn. Watson play better because it's surrounding cast is worse with so many guys I mean Bosa. Richard Sherman, you just go down the whole list. Everyone, who's important kettle on the forty niners it's hurt the quarterback position becomes hey, you know we're in a tough time with injuries. You need to pick us up quarterback oh. Yeah. Now he's her to that I think that enhances the quarterback situation. When we get to the jets handicap here, I've got some sound from New York radio that is hull areas? I think and there was talk this off season about. The, how valued the forty niners Nick mullins was in that I think Mike Lombardi friend of the show was saying. That they could trade for Cam Newton. No one in a trade for but multiple teams asked about Marlins in the forty niners said, he was almost untouchable. I'm sure they came in with a first round. I remember the Thursday night game. Last season but the season before. We were on air right as the game was ready to kick. and. Who was the bathroom? What was that Disney package as? Yeah How you say CJ beathard rather or third I'm not sure but say CJ BE-? Yeah say again. Battered battered. Yeah. So He was horrible. Horrible. Played? Games beforehand I think is would have been before they traded for Jimmy G. or maybe they had and he was whatever and. Literally they were making. An actual game time decision which I never do anymore or you hardly ever see the actual game where they were saying let's see how Heathrow. It's like this guy's horrible battered his hands hurt and I'm thinking this. Mall they. Dragged away they don't want him on the few. No matter. What if you look at the stats marlins that year was shockingly good. Yeah. Eight games and I think very comparable to Jimmy d stats that you could throw a blanket over them. Right and they're almost equal. Yeah. You know I'll pull that up as we're talking because we had that a while back I. It's a real shocker that the stats with mall in Jimmy G. and again that was that one year but I think you're right. Jimmy G. is a great quarterback I mean fast, you love him I mean that is an loved Jimmy Chee. That's debatable but. Not. So Great. Yes. Certainly not worth the touchdowns, four points to the line and what's interesting about this game we don't know if Jimmy is going to play and if he plays, he almost certainly won't be one hundred percent more than likely than not that he won't play I would think but this is really a blended line trying to incorporate all that drew lock to two six weeks out. You've got him worth two point. With Driscoll. The address. Played very well last week actually, and remember there was a time driscoll. He. He played some good games last year but yet driscoll's just the way. You, talk about how much you love the lines offseason was about how bad jurisco was Blau was horrendous but also Yes you're right. You can't have it both ways you're right. This is why you get confused sometimes. Continue to points. Ladies and gentlemen these tickets. Host of the braeside. Just had to hit this is he pays some good. Games. You quoted his date. Say You know you're right? Your. Thoughts on this. I think it's a little more than two I. do think that Driscoll played a good game last week but we've seen that happen a lot where quarterback gets hurt a quarterback comes in and the team rallies around the new guy other teams out ready for him. Correct. They're not prepared for that quarterback and then they go on to not look. So great I actually thought drew lock was going to be an average quarterback like ranked somewhere between fourteen and eighteen in the national football. Let's say that's the case I mean driscoll's not even a top forty, right? At. least not in the top thirty two he's I. Don't know if he's now. He's certainly not one of the best backups in the League. He's not even one of the best halfback he's. If, we were you rank backup showing to the Patriots. Changed. Him Right. Go ahead didn't he go to the Patriots as a backup for awhile I mean that always driscoll Yeah, that's already know here's with. The bengals wasn't anything. So then they said Ryan findlay's. Body Pack your bags. All. Right. I think this. I heard someone I respect. I can't remember who but I mean. I listened closely to say driscoll maybe today's better the lock meaning that locks a project so I don't know I don't know I don't. That's true. Yeah I. Don't I don't I would disagree with that person as well McCaffrey Christian. One of the big three, worth one and a half points position players. Non quarterbacks worth a point and a half. They are Christian McCaffrey Michael Thomas and Aaron Donald. Okay. I thought you were GONNA say Barkley. Because it'd be like all of them were out. Almost? Yeah. So who would be your next one in their? Deal Elliott on. Really Ino. Are Worth, the point but I'm I'm leaning towards Aaron Don I'm leaning towards Hopkins now he's playing so well. When you have the twenty fifth best quarterback and you're putting up those yards I mean you got. All right. So what is what we do with McCaffrey McCaffrey's almost three I think he's like two and a half. Really he's two touchdowns each the first two games and look the fantasy guys know players and granted. It's a different game than sports betting day no players who is the consensus number one in every fantasy draft Christian McCaffrey. This is the best non quarterback in the League. Tables team the most important on quarterback in the League to his team, and he scored four touchdowns in two weeks and they throw it to him as much as he runs. It mean he's. Often. No doubt so fast. What did we again illiquid market whether the look ahead line from last week to now say the chargers last week reminded six is so let's get it. Straight charge has got to be upgraded a point or point and a half, right? Yes. Okay. So let's account for that guy and the chargers are only six to seven this week. So they're saying McCaffrey's not worth anything. That's right. But this happened with the saints to where we all talked about how come the line didn't move for Michael Thomas and then it did. What she's great for us, right? Yeah. Meaning I. I don't know like there's people that go around saying how they hate the batter's bat bad or they hate that teams or inefficient. If everyone's efficient. Where's your? I mean I. We try our very best to help people that engage with us, but I'm not going around the mentoring dumb dumbs I. GotTa deal with them. When I go through drive throughs and Dang so I should benefit from them. That's been my longtime position. I think Carolina's. neak. Approach, to this season. I don't think this team gets all that hyped up about. They. Let's pick up. The slack. Because I'll tell you this right now. I believe if you look at the decisions Carolina's made, they've been brilliant for the following reasons they are bridge to being good two years three years four years from now. I believe that they're looking to be good in a couple of years and I, don't think they care all that much. I don't think that they want to. I guess I'm all I'm kind of venturing into the whole tanking thing which I don't believe in but I believe they're doing something. It's almost like with the raiders did with Gruden with the raiders did with Gruden was say we WanNa get to Vegas one way or the other we wanted to get to Vegas and I think Carolina's trying to get to a winning. I think they got a hell of a plan and I think McCaffrey is the face of the organization. Bridgewater is a name quarterback. And they want to say, Hey, buy tickets get ready for. It's not like the process. It's rather let's spend some money judiciously. But all these contracts are coming up right around when you think they'd be any good. and. Now, it's hard for people to say, well, you didn't try to win McCaffrey's her to what do they do they get a higher draft choice out of it. So as much as I think the players are gonNA. Play hard the coach is going to coach heart I don't think there's real momentum to be like, oh my gosh, we gotta make sure we pick up the slack I mean do you guys get any sense on Carolina otherwise? You know what's interesting is I get the sense that Carolina wants to be an exciting team. So they bring in Robbie Anderson who's a good wide receiver they have dj more so than L. to good. Wide receivers with bridgewater and it seems he hasn't been any good has he bridgewater six, hundred, thirty, four yards passing for a guy who is known as an dinkins dunk nickel and dime our he has six, hundred, thirty six, not not that his numbers are great and they've been losing. So He's headed throw for a lot of yards but that's not normally his game to throw that much and RJ's right is stats or nothing special I. Think he's in th and Qbr this year. That's better than I thought he's not like in the bottom five almost wonder if they didn't meet with him, say look you know we really want you to. Be Aaron the ball down the field. This year I mean they tell quarterbacks they wanNA throw the ball. To me when you increase usage. It's harder to have good efficiency stats. So all right. I'm just thinking I'm I'm not afraid to fake heroin saying I'm going to I'm just saying I don't think there's some big surge, Nick Bowes and some people are saying This could be the most you know again after Aaron Donald, this could be the most valuable defensive player in the NFL I would say he's potentially a point and a half guy he's right on that fringe I think and obviously you got multiple other injuries running back. And Deanne Thomas and. The running back week to week. How do you say them? Oh. Most ankle actually are both are Yeah Coleman. We'll coach Kittatinny first or second best tight in the league. No kidding SURPRI I. I haven't seen the practice for Wednesday Kim supposed to practice was supposed to practice for today. Let's talk forty niners overall that yeah. Injuries I never see team hit so hard with injuries. Remember they lost deforest buckner on the defensive line before the season even start or they traded, right? Yes. So here's a team and I know they brought in a first round draft pick and he hasn't been very good apparently by all reports on that D. Line. So here they've gone. From a position of strength on the D. Line to it being real problem for dessert also, and he's not going to play this alleman Thomas to yeah they're basically their whole d. line is out now D- Ford Solomon Thomas Out Bosa out Ron Blair out all Ford Normal de Lyman all out literally all the entire defensive line from the two weeks ago starting from now week three's out. Do we look at the forty niners opponent over passing yards because what? People. That are filmed guys talk about is forty niners back in week. And the D. Line has been able to competently. In a salary Cabbie era, you either have a great deal lie. If you're good defense, you'd have a great d. line and average cover guys or vice versa wrecked patriots would be vice versa. If the forty niners are in a position to not begin any pressure. Boy, feels like that the giants and again, Danny dimes give him time. You know he he can make the throws right I. Don't think he's in great or I don't think he's a good NFL quarterback. Do you think I love it I think this is worthy of dream for you because Saquon Barkley going out what second due to the New York giants usage because they've been trying Iran him and and it's it's just been completely unsuccessful. Now they can almost exhale and say, all right. We don't have to establish the run because are running back out now. How much how much will the props account for this and then we'll go to Matt I think very little. The props tend to look at. All right. Danny dimes. This is what we've been putting up and I don't know what his number was last week but. I. Would Be surprised if there was a big adjustment and real quick is quarterback over under that will be up before Sunday morning, right? Yes Friday. I think we let's take a gander at that look at last week. Just you can assess what you think the numbers should be in four within even ten yards I. Think we do love it. That, we think. And the other thing too is the only real healthy running back they have left I mean Wayne Gelman was inactive last week is Lewis the Patriots running back who's the guy that you throw the ball out of the backfield? He's more of a third down back. Anyway they signed Devante Freeman but obviously, he's not going to know the playbook is going to be limited this. Sunday. So for this week, especially without a true hand, the ball off run between the tackles running back on the roster, they're even more likely to throw the football more. All right I like it continuing down the list Green Bay Adams Devante atoms I guess she barkley we kind of reference. You got him worth a point. Yes and I mean if his name wasn't. He wasn't. You Know Barclay if he wasn't such a high draft choice what is really what's his stats say I is has this performance outstanding? Yeah he's. Healthy. He's had any not only is that good stats but he he's an he's that old Barry Sanders hand the ball off to him five times he has two yards. Then on the six one gone eighty yards, he has these kind of game. Did you see, Barry Sanders play. Yeah. Course I did not do what I'm saying is this guy doesn't seem like Barry Sanders than me at all where you got. All right. So thirteen games last year rest for thousand yards four point, six yards per carry so well above average. But I mean. Is that like bass rounding third third-best running back in the league shoot I, think only four or five four running backs head over thousand anyway and he did it only playing thirteen games. Yeah. It's always the thirteen games that if you normalize that upwards, it's more like thirteen hundred. There was only four or five running backs get a thousand yards is seventy yards a game. Yeah Wow. Got It. Now now, you might be right I just. I remember Franko used to get. Yeah No, it's not like five at thirty or higher. So okay. What we'll wait a minute five at twelve thirty or higher you saying four over a thousand. So I mean just not that. Yes. Okay. But no, I agree, I mean I'm hearing you. It's not obviously running isn't what it was All Right? So, we'll get to the Games here obviously, but we'll covers a lot of it here Adams Green Bay. Which is day to day. We're saying but you have any sense on him I. Think it's sixty five percent. He's GonNa play me too. If I had to assess. Probable or questionable questionable questionable the hamstring. But it seems optimistic that he could go this week if needed and it game like this. If that means if needed right you WANNA win this game. Okay. No good number two wide receiver for Green Bay lazard and scant scandalous site and always mispronouncing your name the double name yeah okay. So Steve One or the other things that we are going to have to do is address some of your. Hot takes. One of them was Aaron Rodgers where did you have him ranked entering the year twelve? Now Five. Your rankings are like high knife through butter number one and Qbr in the League he's. Really come out just played on fire. So what does this mean? Meaning this was him because I find it to be quite frankly laughable. The idea that he was going to be mad and he was in that with why do you like Aaron Rodgers this year I think he's GonNa be pissed. I mean that didn't make any sense. Did it. I don't know. I think it might may have made sense. No I'm saying I N you're mixing your chances up here is I'm saying, did that make any sense at the time when you heard that before the season? No. Okay. Now you're saying and that's why I'm saying what's going on here a matt what do you attribute this to? I don't think it has anything to do with him being mad in fact I like I said earlier on the radio today I thought the one thing we've seen with success in the NFC the last. Few years the ability to run the football and Green Bay's doing out as well as anybody right now, four hundred, seventeen yards in two games. But what I where I do think the Aaron Rodgers Mad may come into effect is when they were whipping Minnesota Week want they never stopped pouring it on and then again last week they're blasting Detroit and they go ahead and scored another touchdown late to make it forty two to twenty one for whatever reason they're pouring it on late instead. Of calling off the dogs and that to me is the more likely scenario where if quarterback truly is trying to prove a point or make a point, it's not that hey, I'm mad. So I'm going to play better that just doesn't happen mad doesn't make us physically better, but it might make us pour it on at a time when we would normally take the air out of the football and they're protecting me he's only been sacked once all year long. So now there's not the. We don't want him to be getting sacked and possibly getting injured he's not getting hit so he's not getting sacked. Okay. If you look at rushing efficiency based upon pro football focuses aggregate. Ratings. Green Bay rushing is the seventh best team in the NFL. Now, Green Bay passing is the best team in the NFL. And their pass blocking is the best in the NFL. And Overall the best thing NFL Green Bay. So I guess our defenses last piece of the puzzle their defense is. Number Twenty one. So, right now, pro football focus who again they have a way to aggregate or player rankings I don't look at their overall as much as I house the pass blocking house, the rush and outstanding Fez this is a team you thought was an eight eighteen year effectively with photography in which changed its Aaron Rodgers. Darren Rogers. It's the past protection. was last year's pass protection. Bad. I mean I'm very they lost. What Beluga wherever the dues name yeah. Yes. That was a big laws wasn't yeah and they're protecting them great. Job Lugo is one maybe one caution. Yes. They did play Minnesota who've appears to showing their true colors as being a very bottom team in the NFL and they played the lions. So the strength of schedule it's been very and they didn't just play the lions. They had the lion's right where they wanted them down eleven. I don't even know how to explain it is. There's a we talk and by the way Mattie referenced straight out. Of. Vegas and. He's on almost every Wednesday. Most I think everyone so far this football civil code everyone and remember you can get that pod you can listen live six eastern. Day Wednesdays included on two hundred, twenty, five stations terrestrial over the air also iheartradio APP etc straight out of Vegas. Matt Patricia versus the world. So sense started last season Matt Patricia. Versus every other coach with a ten point lead. So the other coaches eighty, seven percent winning. Eighty seven out of one hundred Games they win Patricia two wins. Six losses and a tie remember the Arizona. Yeah. So two out of nine, they want yet another second-half collapsed by the lines in that Arizona game. Yet. Yes. That's why we brought it up. Usually when you're up ten, I could have in the first I. But that was like the very entity. Yeah I think. We were all fighting to try to get. The lines to win the division. Remember lamenting we couldn't get that juicy nine. Went Nine. One. All. Right. So, how much will? So you would have Adams only worth a points. Yes. Even, with a so thin it receiver. Yeah because I'm very cautious about putting anybody at one and a half I mean, that's just elite status. So But. You log people wine lot of people one. All right. tyrod Taylor. So you talked about this on v You said before as you said before the game you would've said, Taylor appoint half better than Herbert after seeing her replay you said, you know upgrade him point and a half. These players are even Taylor and Herbert that was. Monday. What do you think today I feel the same I don't want to overreact the fact herber threw for three hundred yards and he really had a stellar game because there was the surprise Kansas. City, he didn't think he was coming and sometimes it's an advantage right to go ahead and be able to play without the other team preparing for you. I think Herbert's an upgrade when you draft a quarterback that early in the first round, you expect that guy to be a starter within one season. I thought the problem was cove. It people didn't know if he was more of a project quarterback that high when you really call any quarterback in the top ten of project. I mean he he's got the I mean he's got all the tools, right? I mean. WHOA Josh. Allen where did he go? Fifteen? It was meant. Was He mid? I. I will tell you right now Josh Allen. I mean you guys are dating, right? Yes. So you don't know when he was dragged my wife didn't know but now she does. She take number seven he was savvy. Well, yes. The project why isn't he? But he started right away call him a project. If you want I, mean he learned on the Job Berry last year he started. So Fast I. Guess We got address that that was another. Interesting Tag. Yet Josh Allen you said he can't throw him. Outside of a bar and throw the ball through the barn, but he can't hit the barn inaccurate. So back at Wyoming fifty, six percent accuracy poor both is years at Wyoming, and then if you looked at his accuracy and the NFL is I two years, he was in the bottom five in terms of his expected completion rate versus what was expected given in front of him. Well. I two weeks so far so good. Now, he's above average in terms of expected completion percentage while throwing for three hundred, and then four hundred yards are day two of the best games he has had in the NFL. The two best. New Host. Neither change as A you here's the thing. I think I think you're gonNA get for this. Anyway. I think you stick to your guns here and say it was two games. You know who knows what? Were you gonNa do you're going back way? Back away. Week week was back at home. The Guy You bet two hundred autumn to win the Super Bowl and the show thirty, two one. God. I mean. Let me ask you Matt. We have across bet on phases. Seven pigs a we already asked him about that today I said boy or my backing the wrong horse here. He told me he's going to get back on track this week though so I gotta believe to the Like. Actually next race I got it. How you feeling that everything's icy calm calm gentlemen new. It's funny though the Games he won was the games that emulated my pigs. Don't. Make me hold the pigs back from this audience, Steve I definitely got the Arizona Rose Bushes. I definitely got that that's Great. All right. Any other takes for you to address. Brady. So Do you feel like you've actually downgraded? Brady. Yeah Got Brady Number Twenty and let's face it that week one he wasn't good those two interceptions they were bad that he threw against the saints and yeah. But again, this is back to your famous. You Watch half the plays and you can remember two of them in between Fritos. Well you got I gotta ask you though after. After the raiders moved the ball up and down if you say. When you get that warns stuff on your lip drive you batty. You're in the bathroom sometimes four or five minutes at a time getting that mustache. especially with the razor, stubble When you mean he'd never have raises his. Own. Do Sometimes. But not you have less than an average shave every day. His wife magazine this is the Ultimate and laziness I shave in the pool sometime. And I just shave that. Oh God. It's so good. I've never done that in my life not even ones. At. And it was funny the way he almost said it bragging here. Yeah. Let me tell you send had to think about that in my mind go where. So what do do at the little hairs they just flowed in the pool How the help. I'm in the help will clean up, say, here's the revolution. There's gotTa. Kill a team with a big. Name. Oh my gosh. Oh. My Gosh. So. But can we agree that the most people believe that watched the film that Brady played pretty well week one other than those and listen interceptions are bag no doubt but if he was fundamentally. Compromise, it'd be much worse. Yes, and do you think he was? No. And how are you doing to? workmanlike. And what did we expect from a new team? For a forty, three year, old quarterback that's been say system for twenty years takes some time time eight weeks ten weeks six six. Yeah. Why? Why six most people talk about the second half of the years when they started gets the new sale because Brady is a little bit of a faster learner I would think a typical who remember there's another point it's about knowing the playbook is about known your players. Yeah. It's about knowing how certain plays work in certain spots and remember Brady's very finicky. About who he throws to last year a lot of people say that the were ample people open. He didn't WanNa go to players. He didn't trust yet with the Patriots and it was a Lotta kind of mumbling in new. England about that. So does he trust these guys? Did you see him screaming on the sidelines at first game? He doesn't like you didn't see that I didn't see you're washing your face. I watched the NFL rewind. It's only like thirty four minutes. They don't show the screaming. Did you watch again? Yes. I mean he was like shows the animated. Yeah. I mean he was on players right he's used to that and I'm not sure how much they are. So. What is interesting about Brady is for whatever reason people are jumping routes on them. They don't believe that he's throwing the football down the field is much I, mean he has three interceptions in two games that we could say, hey, doesn't know the system or whatever this is a guy who go all year sometimes almost without throwing three or four interceptions and he threw another one last week and That's different. That makes a difference. Oh, I, mean why you know turnover differential winner covers seventy seven percent of the time. I said this on So v Bears Repeating and Alpi repeat it for a long time. This is the all time leaderboard quarterbacks winning games after or forty, three or older. Test Verdy two wins. Tom Brady one win and list in the playoffs now ever oh George Blanda. No wins. That George Blanda Talk I think he was a forty two at the time, but he looked like he was fifty. So here's the players that started a game. Or even through a pass after the age of forty three or older George Blanda. Steve De Burgh Warren Moon Doug Flutie Vani test Verdy Tom, Brady Blanda. He actually threw fifty five passes at aged forty three. Fifty eight passes at age forty four and then he was a kicker, those other year, seventy, two, three, four, and five he played through his forty eight but he did not he threw four passes three passes in certain years and probably fake kicks Steve Berg. Ninety eight he actually had three hundred, sixty, nine yards own one Warren Moon Owen, one and two, thousand at age forty four. Thirty four passes. Doug Flutie. This is interesting. So Brady is going to have more passes test avert he had. A hundred and seventy-five passes. So soon, enough Tom Brady will be the leading passer all time forty, three, zero over for yards for. Like two games into yeah. Well Yeah. Except for tests verdicts to for sure. So these are the stats and these guys fifty, two percent completion percentage. Two three and seven straight up because now it's Brady updated it. And Twenty eight hundred yards. So literally, Brady will have more yards. You're most likely than we forty-three in over quarterback ever. We are officially uncharted territory here touchdown twenty, four to twenty two. So, this is like replacement level or worse. And is Brady an exception. Yeah. But how much? 'cause last year it seemed like he dropped off and who's the? Who's all the weapons that the Patriots had? They didn't have last year now with. Cam. Yes Oh. Yeah that is a great point because all of a sudden cam is fine and these guys like bird and the like that Brady never through two and Nicole Harry Yeah here's the question. Do we really even have to debate? that. If Brady was with the Patriots, he wouldn't be looking this. Good. I mean like people are saying you know talk show type hot take stuff it's. Could it be that maybe dunes better than he would have been take well. Yeah. I mean. Canadian. When make the case otherwise Know and remember the second game for New England before Cam at the game against Seattle. James. White. Was reported out so that that was one of Brady's favorite receivers. Yeah. So what do you think I? Mean you think Brady would be doing as well with the Patriots No So literally a patriots upgraded with camp. I, believe. So yeah, so far so far. All right. I think someone was high on campus is one of my takes. Your research was impeccable when you went back into two thousand eighteen and talked about how he played as well that first half of the year as he did during his m, the pier would happen wasn't just arbitrary. He got hurt against the steelers hurt her shoulder. You know you can always find to me I know it's like saying I I like when there's a reason someone gets hers I. Now Listen I'm GonNa get you guys have thoughts on this. Cam. This is the post game presser. And this actor Seattle. And what I found interesting here was it sounds like he's saying all the right things he saying. It was a good play by the opponents talking about the one yard line last play. and. He was saying the coaches liked the play but then he said under his breath because well, maybe we went to the well one too many times. And then he side but I coulda broke it really the translation the me and I want to hear what you guys think the translation is. The coach's messed up, they relied on me too much who they think I am but you know I could do it maybe. Because I'm Superman. It was a great play by their. This day we had A. Game Plan. figured. Out of into the woods but identity today. Felt confident about. Execute. Could advance it. No looking to flint. The beginning of Cam. Feeling, confident and starting to be cam where you think. First of all Cam Newton never dominated any press conferences. He's never been known for post-game. Hey. Wow. What an amazing posts even showing up that's right. Half Time. So and first of all, I don't think he said under his breath at the end like I could bounce beating. Hey, I could have broke the tackle could bounce that means I could have bounced it to the outside instead of running the same way. He was taking a little blame. Okay listen. If you that part you'd have to listen to the rest the press conference because he kept saying it again and again I gotTa do better. I gotTa do better. You know he doesn't I mean it was just so like everyone's raving about how well you're doing it disingenuous to say like you gotTa do better but forget that him saying we want to the well one too many times. Like one no one was talking about that. How can that be anything but second guessing the coaches have you ever heard Tom Brady do that or any? We think that I agree with you it sure. Sounded like, Hey I got a bum deal here. They put me in a bad position, but I'm superman I should have been able to find a way to make a play despite the crappy play call I agree to disagree but it's okay. So when he said last last question. When he said We went to the well one or maybe we went to the wall one too many times. What was the intent? Like what was it? What was he saying that? What was the? What was he trying to communicate? You just think he said it said something that's Kinda. See Normally team speak coach speak out loud like, Hey, maybe we called the same play too many times and You hear people questioned the play calls like that a lot. I just think it's Cam. That's my point. Everyone's talking about we got a new CAM. I'm saying this might be the first. Hey, listen your fifties forties. Tell me when. Someone fundamentally changes. Someone above the age of twenty five you know, and then sometime later they're just different that they fundamentally and maybe not that because some people can be drinkers and are not drinkers after but. And not even just twenty five because you'd have to say look I guiding our children till I was thirty children fundamentally changed you who you are. You want to be a better person for. Yes, so so let's let's say naturally after twenty five or after you have kids and I would say is what I'm trying. What I'm trying to say is that if someone has a flaw, if someone is the type, let's say there's a guy that just likes attention from women. JFK type. They usually don't you know a Labora- doesn't change his spots as they say. Someone who's lazy someone who's disorganized someone who loves the EAT? All the things that people are trying sometimes you know. Improve themselves on how People might lose weight for a year to three. But where did they end up usually almost always back to where they were cam is not the Patriot weighing cam are not. Aligned I think he can grin and bear it here for a while I. Don't think there's any fundamental change in Cam with potentially bad habits does anyone have optimism that this is a new cam from here on the rest of his career he's going to be a ballot check in kind of got no but I don't think anyone thought the Patriots picked cam up. So late as a long term solution I thought they said, hey, we need something for now and cams the best option. But. Lombardi saying at this point he thinks that it's almost a sure thing that he'll resign with the pats now I'm not saying that's true. I'm saying that's what he's saying and he knows the pad. So they're. His son in a weird way you gotTA. Wonder why? Sign Cam if you knew for sure it was a one year thing maybe. was like last year in the contract maybe you'd want but if I am a year. You know that's interesting. Well I guess we'll see how much they really like stem because the theory is giving them one more year a non cova year. Hopefully, it would give them a lot better chance, right? I that's bad time. Faz you tune. No. You, get to go I. All right. Let's go to new. York we're GONNA take the giants plus four against what's left of the San Francisco Forty niners. This line doesn't make any sense to me. If you look at the look at line, the niners were laying six and a half what's happened since what Jimmy G. got injured and he alone is worth four points. Now, he might play if he plays, he won't be one hundred percent I don't think I think it's more like a he won't play then he will play but even if he does play all these other injuries and we documented it already across the board this. Is a crippled forty, nine or team and I also think it's really a bad spot for the niners in what normally would be a good spot. They get to play in the same stadium that they played in last week against the jets advantage forty niners normally. But it's the niners team that's coming out and saying, this is a sticky turf. We don't like it. We believe this is what's causing injury. So now in the back of all their players minds, they're playing on a playing surface that they don't want to be playing on and they're going to be worried about getting injured on advantage giants on the giants plus four. I'm. GonNa go with the Buffalo bills here. It's Oh I'm sorry I was going to give your feedback on that. Big. It's hard to disagree there I will say this in in the circle. I have to kind of pick on my own every week I've taken the giants both week. So I've watched both of their games and they've been easy to watch because, hey, ones on Monday night football. So everybody watches it and then I watched the game against the bears because it was a very close sweat and they ended up getting home last week. And we had them right. So I'm watching it. Boy I know Barclays out and everyone wants to say that that's why their offense struggled. The first two weeks I thought that the passing game is improved but Daniel Jones decision making isn't exactly where I'd hoped to be yet. and. But but how do you argue with the injury sentiment? So I certainly don't want the other side to me the value on this is your ability to assess what the line should be. Now obviously, the look ahead, give us an advantage, but you're saying, alright, right and again I think it's dangerous with Jimmy G. won't be one hundred percent. I rarely see quarterback quarterback play they. Usually I rarely see quarterbacks where it's like you can sometimes limp out there and they throw for four hundred yards. It's hard. You know it's not like a cornerback or something they a little lack I mean Bernie. Kosar, was quarterbacking for many years in the NFL. Jimmy G. will physically be better than him if he can walk on the field. So that is the MINUTIAE think you get lost in more times than not but if we just get to the core and say fifty fifty if he starts or not. Four points is worth than two points. And you're saying that's the line's been moved how much two points to two and a half points from before. So now you add up everything out now the question is giants cover, but it was a back door but don't forget Barclays out so you have to adjust for Barclay. Yes but you didn't say that. To, why wouldn't you say that? Yeah, I should've? So, let's do the math here. So you want to go through it. Sure. So Barclays Worth, the point I'm saying is the line last week six and a half. And now the line is for those gone to a half-point. In the giants favor I what let's give? Jimmy Jeez questionable status or uncertain status to point, right? Yes. The now there's a half a point though that need to be made up to account for the two and a half. So go ahead. All right. So both is out and he's worth the point. Continued. You've got cluster injuries on the D. Line Salman Thomason Ron Blair or out That's probably worth close to another point fanfare. You got running back injuries your top two running backs, moster Coleman or they're. They're not out already right I believe they are. Most stirred it I think you're right. Actually Coleman is right. I think they're applying pyeho running back. Yeah. That McKinnon's a good running. Yeah. That's that's that's a great point. So. I think the fact they had injury so much coming in against the jets oftentimes when you have a team that's very injured. The team steps up and they have one game where they say we all have to step up because of her injuries the week before. So you had Barclay and it feels like the line if all things are equal if it's just trading chess pieces. I feel like the lines right in that regard. I think you're making a very good point, which is this I don't know how this isn't a huge factor in the minds of the forty niners that you don't hear NFL teams complain about the field very often the fact that this was so adamant they the season was devastated in a way and think about it. But having both on a rookie deal, you don't have many years like that. Right and they gotta make a decision on Jimmy G. I think it's after this year is a key year for that. If. They feel like the whole season is up in smoke. One is depression they were going what West Virginia are they? Going to West Virginia and I think instead of being a bonding moment, it's going to be like The the press see that's a great point I wanted to ask you about this because the niners last year did this twice remember the state in Youngstown Ohio one time and other time they stayed on the East Coast before they played against Baltimore and it brought the team together. But that's when everything was clicking for the niners. They're having a dream season. How is this week of unity during? A covert year going to work when things are already going well, I think collaterally wrong Cova probably helps right. You don't have to worry about the TRAV- I. Mean You were just saying on S. O. V. The rams having a fly back so atrocious. So he has to how they're staying. I think though doesn't help like it should or typically does because they're depressed and they're fearful. Here's the thing. We are NFL. Players the most fearful of his injury. Right because that's I mean listen. I don't hang out with the NFL players, but you watch I tell you this ballers really was something where. Steve Levinson and crew made that really wanted this show. WHAT NFL PLAYERS FOUL kind of post career I wasted my money. and. When you looked at that show, there was a lot of talk about the fear of injury because. All takes. These guys spend first contract. They don't have any of it saved typically. Then it's I second unveil get that second contract. Today it's not even not generational wealth they might be working at a car dealership. You plot your knee and your third year what? Ha- I mean NFL disposable man they just keep bringing. I think that they're going to be questioned themselves the whole I think a huge I. think it's one of the biggest factors of the week. Uncertainty about that field where you're saying. I agree I I think sometimes, we speculate about what people are feeling or what the environment is, and even when we make a really good case about it, it's a so.. We don't know that they're not altogether in there and but remember for me at least. It's that. If. It's right. It makes the pay. I. Always try to create a situation where the pig is okay without it and it's a free role turn right. So to me I think we're I think we're probably right around the number except for I think two factors here man you can tell me which one you agree with more whatever is the field, but also the sense this freaking season's lost. And the fact that they're playing no to team at home, which is back against the wall of you go and three you don't make the playoffs so that I mean not that the giants have big playoff aspirations those a lot New York. Oh, in two teams tend to come out firing. So I think. If any one of the giants play, and lastly anything if I want Mr Daniel Jones as I call if I want him to have a big game, it's going to be against a team that doesn't get. He's he's got the arm you. If you make them count if it seven on Savon Kinda throwing he's good and Richard Sherman's out that help Daniel Jones some more. And that maybe I like. We got man. I'm going with the buffalo bills I mean that's what I do all year, a buffalo bills this year I I just think the market hasn't caught up with him yet, and you know because they played buffalo main Miami and the New York jets. So those games were early they were they're not prime time they don't catch anyone's attention dave literally had deep maybe what was one of these three most dominating performances in the early season so far in their week one win over the jets. which the scoreboard doesn't show they destroyed the jets I mean they could escort fifty in that game if not for two fumbles to miss kicks true fumbles in the red zone both by Josh Allen in that game I mean over seven hundred yards, six touchdowns no interceptions we talked about the difference that Zach Moss and Stefan digs we're gonna make in this offense. This team is really good and yet they haven't really been elevated by the public yet by the odds makers but because the rams. beat. One of the most famous teams in football in the Dallas cowboys in week one and then went on the road and beat another really popular team in a pick them game, which we know betters tend to gravitate to these picker games on Sunday. And they looked so good. The rams are suddenly this red hot team. Everyone's talking about at the end of the day this line as it stands right now buffalo minus two and a half says, these teams are equal. But Buffalo had a full game higher in the season win totals and certainly can't downgrade buffalo for their quarterback having a seventy and a half percent completion percentage over seven hundred yards, six touchdowns no one receptions buffalo is done nothing but impressed and hasn't been upgraded and yet the rams have been upgraded to far. These teams are not equal. The bills are better I'm taking the bills minus two and a half. I like him phase one of our disagreements on the power ratings was I you have the rams number five? Yes. Ludicrous. Ludicrous. Done. I mean they had a coin flip game where I think they were sixty forty against Dallas that's fair. I know and they played maybe one of the worst teams. In the League, the Way Philadelphia's playing is as bad as anything and the way Carson Wentz is whatever I mean. It's like what I'm saying it's just collectively let's go to a pro football focus here. And again. I liked the computers to Tau us. What we've seen this year I don't want them to how is how good these teams are, but you know the Saragan or type things so if we look at Philadelphia. Is, number twenty nine and the overall powerade or? Evaluations for Philadelphia Twenty Nine, the only worse Denver. Your team Minnesota. And Carolina were team. Now, let's out just read this list because I think it's tallying Green Bay Rams Seattle Indianapolis Chicago. Baltimore. Buffalo. San Francisco Tampa Bay New England Pittsburgh Jacksonville. Wow Cleveland. CLEVELAND WOW KANSAS CITY Tennessee Atlanta doesn't sound crazy I mean saying take eighteen they haven't played great. This isn't power ratings. This is what we've seen. So I get it. The rams have played. Wow. You know even they lost a dollar. So we're meant they were even teams they were plus you know one at home to the over performed a little bit. But I mean buffalo has how would you characterize last week's game because they didn't cover right? No Miami scored a touchdown late to cut it to three. Buffalo had almost nine yards per play Miami, a little less than six. So domination statistically Buffalo Homerun plays big plays and it was what twenty three to nothing or twenty four to nothing at half in that in the bills game in the I mean the jets game in the first half and they fumbled twice inside the twenty and miss kicks. Let's just say you know that's worth at least seventeen it should have been forty one nothing at half the sets game. So what you're saying is in your opinion. It was a deceiving final as well as they played to in a whip to people it. It was worse. The stats say that it will work both of them as. I do and I know you don't think as much that that this is a big deal but I really think. That west coast team having to go east weeks two weeks three and they're thinking the back of their minds before the season starts of a bonding week. No. No Way. I'm confused when you when they thought they were spending it back here back east on back here. When was that Steve They went to the NFL. The Rams did yeah. Okay. Back in March or April okay and they said before the schedule and they said we want. Give us a road trip where we stay east back to back week. So that's why it was in the NFL schedule. Okay. So but continue on. Within the Rams said what being Kovic. Year and then there was never a time that they thought they were staying back he never. Store your talent about we thought we'd have this bond it's just made up. Right I mean effectively. What else I mean? Dirt. During this, ever a time that they were saying, we're going to go to Latrobe we're we're GONNA, go to whatever. Then what are you talking about just the travel itself having to fly. Now you changing the subject. What I'm saying is I'm not saying the travel is not arduous or whatever. I'm saying this idea that they've been disappointed like a kid not getting his ice cream PGA that you're talking about. Why keep saying that's row understand you've said at twice didn't you? Yes why? 'cause you're trying to spin is give us the facts. The facts aren't good enough deal with it. Damning. Travel is I mean, obviously, there's obvious disadvantageous travel situation as well for the rams this week in the fact that they have to go back and forth west to east twice in a row and it's west East early, it's not west East late it's west East early. You know you brought up a great point about the running back the new running back moss who actually hasn't put a big stats yet by all reports say the kids really good. I am telling you they haven't even hit their potential numbers yet, but there's a reason why I said they'll take buffalo to win at all. This is a top five football team in the NFL. Okay. So if we look at Jeff Sag Rhen, we've got Baltimore number one Kansas City to Seattle three San Fran for saints five steelers. Six Ram seven Green Bay. Dallas Buffalo Tan. Arizona. So let's look at Philly. I'm just interested in how bad phillies played. They got Philly at number. Twenty one. I mean this team who knows what they're gonNA. Be they been well below average so far? Both Games. All right. I agree I love this. I needed some advice. I know of fastenings. He's crazy. We think of the chiefs. Manning like the chiefs. I'd. Just, run through. That's one of my five is already circle. Yeah, I Bills we got steelers taxes. I don't want any part of this tax team I mean and I can't play Pittsburgh. Okay, bike I wanNA fade vikings are two and a half of them boys. They've just wind now they've been downgraded five points seems I Maybe as much as any team. I think. A lot of people saw last week but yeah I agree. Charges too much. Yeah. Listen I think the Ravens have beat up on bad teams they've been I mean like let's go through their schedules thieves. Tell me last year even their dominating performances against good teams. I Pittsburgh it was twenty seventeen I still remember overtime with. or one of those crazy dudes. Rudolph well, I think every individual personally. deserves. found. We know how fast is competitively speaking you're like a grain of sand in the Sahara desert. Entire Desert I. Think they beat San Fran but didn't cover. That was about three or whatever. At Home Right Buffalo by seven. Okay. That's a nice. Win. and. They crust the rams I remember the rams. The rams were yeah. Rams are amassed. They had really. Impressive performance against good teams like like like beyond like the tease covered in every case against the win against New England Yep, already seven twenty, and how here's the thing how they do against Kansas City. They got outplay. They're talking to the my. I did do against. Kansas City. They got out play. They got. Back to our cover. The I, what I'm saying is and they were getting six or seven. So right what was the line? Five and a half five and a half hour closed. It was it was six. Oh Yeah. So what I'm saying is Andy Reid is one of the best coaches out there spag Yala as I. Like to call him. He's been around the block. It's not I mean to me I think hardball ball is out coach is you look at the teams he blows out oftentimes are poor co poorly coach teams. Andy Reed's probably better than our. All right. And what is our argument against Kansas City? The fact that in division playing against a quarterback, they didn't expect They still win that game I. Mean I don't get this line I don't because. This is back in analyze point on the game. This is back to the idea of what generates power rating is it how you do against? You know when you're laying nine and you win by fourteen days is important. But I think the Ravens are not built for these kinds of games. Playoff Games and every team in almost every sport has one team or one style that they play against where they always that hey, that style works well against us and even when we win, it's just not as sexy and thus we get downgraded on our performance. They never blow out the chargers since Mahomes has been there both games last year they covered by a point they covered by like two or three, and they just don't blow them out. Okay. Spoke by seven intend just barely got inside the number both time and when the charges were good the year before remember they had the two point convert I, mean they they played tight. Always there's something about the chargers a matches up well against Casey now tell you this. It's an advantage for Casey. They had that tight game 'cause if both these teams Orion. Hi. All Right, let's say Casey wins by fourteen easy. Now they had too easy double digit win. Ravens easy. KC's who's got revenge WHO's looking to make its Baltimore Casey's thanking Ha or defending our title or underdogs. And we just came off a game. We almost lie not just underdogs. We're more than a field goal underdog. Now, boy they're disrespecting us here's here's my famous thing not famous where I do a lot. Could this be five? Seems Insane. No. Right EMMYS. Hey, why they're almost as much as. You know steelers were against Denver was sex right or six nine. So but could this line be? Two and a half. Sure. That's what it was like two and a half we we didn't have frantically text. He's got to get over and lay the two and a half now dammit now. Yeah. So I mean to me this can't be wrong in the other direction. This could be right but it's at the age at the fringe of pot even impossibly right I think it's a great point if you look. Both, these teams are awesome at the end of the year that both going to be thirteen and three. Or around there and I don't I don't think the Ravens I really believe Kansas City almost losing I really really believe it makes it. So they are focused on this game that they don't want to almost lose and now lose right I think it was you know it was A. I really think that's a factor and I also think do they really you? They know how you were saying about home field here? Yeah. So home field. Two points for Baltimore right that's it. Normally, we were talking about the Playoffs two points, Max or Baltimore but remember in the playoffs the idea that you think Baltimore should have better super bowl odds we talked about this is v because if they win yes I'm sorry. Yes. Because Baltimore, there's only one number one seat that gets a by this year. So there's seven playoff teams. So because of that, the reason Baltimore's favored to win the Super Bowl is just because they're home in this game and the the Simpleton projection is like Oh Baltimore. Favored Baltimore's GonNa Win Though have game an athlete and they'll have a by but it three and a half they are literally at this point saying. That they played this in Kansas City, it's a pick em almost with the with the which a current field we're saying measured going through three. Yeah Gimme they're saying this is a Peckham in Kansas City this I should be too right. So to get up to two and a half called five cents, right twenty cents to get up to three twenty cents to get three and a half. This is forty five cents from with the line should be. Forty five cents the other way it's going to be more. It's GonNa be Baltimore's favor out fast Kansas City, and how fast would we be? Rushing to the window to take KC pick as a dog or as a at home, pick them or a dog at home we would all one hundred percent take case. Now, one thing about these number one versus number two teams is that. Typically they'll number one here though exactly what to two to the top teams teams typically the home fields worth more because it's a frenzied frenzied crowd you know. So whatever the crown, exactly. So I think there's a news alert. There's an inflation rate on the home team in these marquee games that doesn't belong here. I agree this is I like this a lot and I really breaking down the value of three and a half year I know it's a high total. You know I still think help Casey. I think well, maybe I'm just saying that the three two hundred dollars worth as much as it would be a lower total just because when you keep having two point convert but still it's the most valuable number. Yeah. I like it and you know what's interesting about? Monday night and maybe I shouldn't leak this one because it seems stupid. So the squares teasers in the world but but they add up throughout the week lots of really square teasers will will tease a favourite of minus three to plus three. But. Those same square teasers will not tease minus three and a half two plus two and a half. So the book is saying we're trying to. So, look at being there. So many really square teasers out there during NFL betting week. So some people speculate especially when the prices were lower to go from plus three. or go from is three to pasta. Wasn't so terrible as much as going through zero sounds like it. Yes. So but you but they will not the squares will not teas. My is three and a half two plus two and a half. Okay. So what so which makes sense because you're not getting to the other three so how does it apply? You think this teaser protection or a little bit. So a little bit everyone thinks, Oh, they're pounding Baltimore but at the end of the day, the books just came off a week where the Hawks got home. A Favor teasers got home favorites more than fuel goal more raiders only loser it was fourteen and one that's right straight up. So what happens is and I've been in plenty of these, you go into the Monday finance meeting with people that work with that are basically bankers every time they don't understand the industry they don't necessarily understand the ebbs and flows. And what happens is when you get smoked on teasers, the we that week, you tend to not want to sit in that same Monday meeting again, the next week, and you tend to buy yourself a little bit of teaser protection with some of the numbers sometimes. Up to three and I swear look, we've had those conversation in risk rooms. Where do you WanNa be the one on that? Monday, call again explaining why we lost. One point two, million teasers again I gotTa, tell him that I could I've gone a long time. Tens of thousands of hours of sports betting content. I've never heard that when I love it I mean it says the stuff you bring the table see I'm not afraid to give common this. The big brings to the table. All right. I got one last point. Sandiego slash the chargers. Casey knows I'm extremely wow. Casey had Thursday game ten days now extra rest again in a Monday night. Any reads great with extra rest covert arrest means more. Do you think maybe there was some extra time spent. During the chargers week went with a ten day week preparing for this game. which would yes, which you don't need ten days to get ready for division opponent there you I'm an eight and a half point favorite against the division opponent and a three point or two and a half point dog at the time obviously I'm going to start planning at. Do. One housekeeping item with this the teasers there are some times where you can tease like reminds twenty-five but you get the, you get the six points easier. You take it to the three and a half not. So instead of six and a half point teaser. Six Okay Oh. Okay. So you're saying from three, but I guess under that theory if you do the savvy, you're going three and a half to three and a half which would be really hard saying actively getting saying because of the my start, right? Yes. He's bad. Brought up teasers. I knew. Somehow you. You know what? He didn't realize about the seven pigs. Tell us about your experience with Chris. Oh my God. So I'm walking to my at my favorite games I like the eagles a lot and the whole world is at one and a half with a couple ones and Chris deals to on me on Philly on Friday at the time. So all of a sudden Friday at two. Thirty. Okay and I'm like I'm going to a root canal to get my lines here. This is I. Definitely getting shaded against similar. I thought about it is think about this some people that say you can't beat the NFL was sides I go over the long hard. Yeah. How much of an edge would FAZ have baton seven games if he could bet anytime, he wanted at any book any book at one ten versus one time at the sharpest book in the world once lines are shaped up I mean it's Friday. You could make the case lines are sharper Friday afternoon. So Sunday morning because I don't have to square ball's coming so. Yeah. So let me ask you I. I will say this. I regret. Regret. For some reason I looked over it fizz and he gave me like he thought I was like, all right like you gave me that look like I still win. Underdog at this point, he bought me under the five hundred on again. You down at this point. And plus if he could bet any amount of games he'd have but we got it locked day up. He'd be any fewer amount of games. Yes. Well, I'm saying if you were dying if you said seven or more, that's trying to pull with someone if you're down a bunch of units, you start really pounding game in it. Yeah. Oh, he's always he met games buying a milkshake. Take get extra bananas or so. All right. One last question on the book making side. It seems like in the last couple of years has been games they bat with no regard for the number Atlanta. I mean explain the land move where is was? Did he get to three? No no but so yes. So Seattle is favored by talking about a cowboy in land I'm sorry I'm sorry. I'm like mixing up my Atlanta Games let me make. Let me let me get straight. Yeah. So it was or and a half six and a half opener. All right. It gets bet they've they take the dog to take Atlantic it's down to four and a half and slowly dropping. Throughout the week no real information change other than one Lineman for Dallas questionable. It gets down to three and a half. Then it goes to three and then two and a half pop up in some places. Oh. Absolutely. Southbound was sitting on two and a half for quite some time and it closed his. That happen. They like in year I would years would go by the the they would other than information they would do a number like that. Right? Yeah. I mean you fall in the screen as well as anyone. Like I still remember the Atlanta Game I think Atlanta was at Carolina. Three years ago, and the line opened up Atlanta three or Carolina Three Atlantic, got bat all the way to being a three point favorite I. I've never seen. This was no reason for it. What do you have any sense of what is still looking at that point number because it comes We'll tell you I would have thrown the challenge flag if I had one in my pocket. So let's do this. We'll give it twenty two one. We'll let mattie finish and it did take you about three minutes to figure out what game we were talking about. So they'll get too much. After four. That's do it patriots. Raiders to know so. Call and had them in the heard hierarchy. Where do you get the raiders file? He's right. At eight forty, a m went to two and a half right before for a long though for ill kick, it never came back. So my raiders I mean. How how unusual is that it saying the land was the factory and even team with Dallas? Yeah see I'm saying there's some covered who something go should've covered easy. They were up twenty. That's what I'm saying Sake I'm. When I'm I'm not saying it's fixed I'm saying there's groups with a I the they get so confident, they're just baton get they're getting I wonder how much they had on him because the money it talk the public had to be on Dallas and I'm from six and a half through four through all the teaser numbers through three and a half through three I mean you couldn't even comprehended without any re- against one of the most popular teams term saying I've seen moves like this. Probably, every other week maybe. Six Year like this when you say, yeah, you're saying on Sunday morning latte two years ago I remember Molinski last year with us and then you know he unfortunately had the accident r.i.p day. Yeah. But he was talking about scene moves on Sunday morning he'd never seen before but yet you're watching Sunday mornings closes anyone's. Heard is that there's a poker group poker players that are betting mega mega money and they're not too concerned about what the line is. They get their place and they're firing on those. That's what happened last year. I don't know about this year haven't gotten any yet. That's first of all. That's been around for a while the poker players. but historically, they haven't they've never been on I'm not saying any of them are terrible but they've never been that sharp again. It lets us someone from my history cantor who used to make megabits four a former. Boxing champion who lives here in Nevada right? We all know who he is. He would make seven-figure bets should no one's moving the number. You're just saying, Hey, if this guy makes enough of them over time then you think you know you're going to hold the percentage on them, which that was unusual bookmaking approach most places wouldn't be comfortable thinking like Bashar you just figure look he's a normal guy he every bet to fifty fifty it's a true fifty fifty we're talking here someone thought this was a sixty, five, thirty, five. and. I. Don't know. Here's what I've heard, and again you guys are both more connected in this regard than me. Math get the poker, guys have gotten to be really big and math not math is in Oh, what the percentages but using computer simulation staff in the whole GTO that's happening for why I agree. But what I'm saying is my understanding is that they pulled money together and hired a guys. Because the theory is why why can't you know back when doyle was doing it or? They were trying to find the right handicapper. Now, you find some guy from NASA. They got the money I mean, it doesn't. Those NASA guys are making one hundred and fifty, hundred and eighty thousand like I mean. Not The vice president's or whatever but you hire a couple of those NASA guys. How much does it cost you like one hand of poker for a year a big gigantic hand. And and and my you know I have. I've been either approach or made aware of. Seven or eight different groups in the last let's say year and a half that we're doing things that has to be just the tip of the iceberg. I believe that that is words all headed and I told Steve a couple years ago I. Think the. Liquid markets like the NFL how? It's it's no human can do what I can do. I mean, literally they if you look at deep blue and Casper off, it took years to build that computer and be Casper off in ninety six I. think it was. Alpha go I think is the name of the Google. System. They taught they gave this computer, the chess roles within forty minutes. It was the best player or best entity ever to play chess every other chess computer it could be within forty minutes of even knowing the game existed. Now you get. There's a lot of money in the NFL. I've a feeling that the only time you bet like this is when you feel like the you know, how can you be confident that lie Steve you start shaking there's your two cents off when I lose any value whatsoever and I gotta be. It's not about losing value. It's about good at this number. Yes, and they are saying we know the number we don't. Yeah. Oh, it was seven. Who Cares we got that we want we'll take plus three. Plus seven I'll take plus everything I got. They've got all they. took out the savage right they're saying more and more I mean think about if you do a game was fixed. Even if a game was fixed, you know what was the alleged donahue fixes? What do you think the winning percentage? I think the rumor was donahue one like sixty, seven percent of his bats when he was trying to influence them. So, let's say that's right. Seventy percent. If you had a seventy percent bat your aim. Through a lot of numbers right you just keep betting as much as you can tell your. Your risk of ruin you know says, okay, I got down twenty percent of my bankroll on the spy who cares at sixty two percent versus sixty seven percent. Yeah. What do you think the line should have been on the codes and dividing hs? Seven eight I was thinking six really to be honest with you. I mean I even had it on my we both had in both contests. I just I but I don't want to overreact Woodham saying is looking at the numbers. Now the vikings have been downgraded five point. Yeah. It's the biggest downgrade. So you got to upgrade the coach played this week it'd be at least seven. Right. Yes. I make it six and a half based on my current power innings. Been Way wrong on the Vikings at and you could. You could argue if I could get into a time machine, right we can go back and they're gonNA replay. This game everything else is equal. and. The line was seven and a half who do I want? I think I WANNA lay it. I mean I'm not sure you're wrong because it didn't seem like Minnesota. Got Bad brakes. I guess they lost their Linebacker, the pectoral I Anthony Barr during the game so I guess my point is I mean think back to some of these other games that were clearly wrong lined. At those lines had changed drastically from week eight I mean look at the look ahead, write the eagles this week. If you think about the look ahead in that game, if I think someone was talking about diet specific game, let me see here. I think it was eight to five. Yeah. But let's think which do you think the biggest change? I'm saying from the the summer lines of the Summer Lines Eagles Bengals this week eagles were supposed to be competing for that division title Bagels. By. Yeah. So I guess what I'm saying he's in high is six weeks. Later we figure that some of these week one, two lines or off by five six, seven points. Well, if you have the right computer in theory, you're seeing that now. Yeah, right. I don't know I. Just know that you book billions of dollars. All joking. Aside you did you ever see a move that move in Arizona that wasn't information driven no I almost threw the challenge flag on Phase I had to look it up did real quick as right and to me it's something to keep an eye on. Yeah but I will say this and I'm like you I've heard of law I've met at least fifteen groups doing ai now it's much more prevalent looked really good groups of only been around three or four years, and then they is so much better. I remember if you look even at smart money, the book that allegedly was about Billy Walters is it was always, I, mean the computer really I is another. The only difference between the computers ai is that they teach themselves instead of going in and doing tae do regression can just run all night trying every permutation. Yeah and the funny thing as last thing if you're interested in this kind of thing, look up high frequency trading on the stock market. Is there's a good book. It wasn't a great book was so anxious to see a book about it is there's a guy named Jim Simmons who was a world class mathematician and he started The Magellan Fund in New Jersey in New York upstate New York, and they the best mathematicians and the book is called the man who solved the market and they have now like three or four hundred page PhD's they're making billions a year and like any given day Simmons and company or like eight percent of the trades on Wall Street, because they will instantly they buy it and then sow a millisecond later. And think about it. You can be the twentieth best guy at. Renaissance. That company and you'd be the best guide. In sports betting, it wouldn't even be close. So at some point, maybe they're retired these people are looking for a challenge. Who knows who's doing this work? Yeah it's. To me, that's why I like that. I'M A contrarian batter. I'm once those lines are moving like I don't know what's going I'm just going to watch and try to figure it out. But, if I see a game drift up drift up drift out the public's on it. I feel pretty comfortable at that point right into means. In the NFL. I think it's the best sport to be a contrarian better because it's you gotta if you're not, you're trying to beat the I I'm saying if the is involved congratulations, I'm out. So Patriots Raiders I mean. I heard an interesting point on this patriots. which is they spent a lot of energy against Seattle are they a little flat here? Perhaps, they wanted to make a statement fell like you guys did. I like the Patriots them yes and I think it's the raiders are going to flat. So think about this Monday, night football, first game, and allegiance. To fight against the new, the Patriots and ballots. That's true. But you have a limited amount of energy throughout the course of the season and there's no doubt A-. Games in eleven first of all I think that's fantasy world limited amount of energy. So I mean when you got married and that was a big that was how many people were at the wedding. Oh it was a real small wedding. How many? All right eight I really. Yeah. A real small living. Was the white chat yeah. We went down the little I. Tell me. What was she do? The next day was just small small. That but but it'd be small but why the White Chapel? What she wanted. I gotta dig into this some other time. But most people, Matt when you You've you've been around a big wedding, right I'm not sure about your situation. So you have the energy and then you go on a honeymoon. and. Then what is your sleeping all the time right is. I don't think there is a like an eight days. You can't be excited about two games. I think that unless there's a reason be excited, you're picking to some degree. It's GonNa be like, Hey, I'm worn down, but when things are rocking and. In There I mean you see team sometimes go three straight games games seems like how do they do it and they do hit a wall but is it really actor? Pine Carolina? And then having a fairly easy game, you would say against the saints wasn't like a war, right? No, it was tied at halftime. Yeah. But it wasn't a super physical game wasn't. It didn't didn't feel that way I will say this I think the raiders caught a nice breaks weeks one and two Carolina's the team you identify and I agreed with you hey, what's fade? Carolina early in the year the most changes in continuity and coaching in quarterback and in players. So they get Carolina Week one that's the week you WanNa play Carolina when do you want? Okay if you're the writers when you WanNa, play the saints we WANNA play the saints weeks one and two when they historically have been the worst and you certainly want to play them without Michael Thomas. So I do think that the raiders have caught a big break in the schedule getting those two teams to start the year. So I would say is is I'm not sure the patron down, but I think if anyone has a lack energy here, it's going to be the team that played probably a harder game. You're saying emotionally I get. But now the Patriots are playing another bad team in their mind where the raiders are playing ballot check into the greatest team of the century I don't think you're down for that especially if you're a guy, Gruden has a sent a history speaking of the history. That Tucker. Going back twenty years ago you gotta wonder about Gruden and and that whole you know looking at New England and is it extra motivation to send matter at all? But was Gruden with the raiders attacked state thought he was he could be I'm not sure. You down the game generally. Steve so I think if nothing else. Yeah. I lean the PATS they're not one of my five but I I certainly don't want to also push the button on them either. But I tend to agree with his synopsis here in the fact that if nothing else the raiders had to do a lot of prep beating drew brees on Monday night football in the first ever game at Allegiance Stadium meant something to that team. It meant something to coach Gruden the first game in the new city they want to be successful in Vegas. They want the Vegas raiders to mean something it feels like Gruden feels like this is the start. Of it here hey, we're in. Vegas. Now where a new team, it's a new record and I think that one was really important I think that first home game in Vegas was really really important to him and I'm not saying they're not going to be up for this week but they get one less day preparation because they played Monday night and now they lose one one day a prep in one day a prep against bill belichick can be important. I, would lean pats I agree more I think about it pads after a loss. Ballot Check Twenty three and twelve against the spread. Next the way back to two thousand I think next game no picks on this one we'll start with fast steelers Texans in line is Pittsburgh four to the saying these are almost well, Pittsburgh's it's Mitch Pittsburgh's better than the taxes to the degree the Baltimore's better than Kansas City about go ahead Eileen to Pittsburgh here. I. Don't want Bet Pittsburgh because I don't want it to and team against a desperate. Oh, in two team especially in two team that just played to do you have a trend on that that you like. To now I do not have but you doing we through four right you like one and two against one and three against three and wow. Okay. Okay. But. Occurs Sir. So we don't care. We don't well and it's good practice Baltimore just play the two best teams in the NFL. So Kansas, city I'm Houston Played Kansas City. Baltimore. So it's excusable the row in to the one thing that concerns me here we talked about they need Watson needs his good wide receivers healthy and we worried about cooks cook, said that quote issue week one only got twenty yards. Four had a great game week one I. Don't know what happened before. He was not on the injuries hurt every week he's on the injury report this week he was not on the injury report last week and he missed half of the place and he was like on the sidelines. So now I gotta worry about full or being healthy also, I want no part of USTA. Sneaky Hammy. Yeah I, don't want any part of this game. The one good thing for Pittsburgh's they were missing to the of their best offensive. Lineman. Last week, David Decastro Ian Stephen was new ski They get decastro back for sure this week I mean was skis out on the I are now he's out for the rest of the season, but they do get decastro back this. Week so I think that's a positive that means something on the line for big band because he obviously doesn't move like he used to. But when you give him time, we've seen he's in shape nothing wrong with that arm. So I think a big upgrade for Pittsburgh getting decastro back and look they should cover last week against Denver they were the right side against Denver? Denver was Davidge too I mean churn backup quarterback. That you don't expect now that cuts both ways, but they also lost Cortlandt Sutton. Yeah Right. But number one receiver I mean an eight and they obviously lost their best defensive player of the week before. So I mean, if I mean obviously they've been devastated but I think the case can be made they were devastated within that steelers game and they almost got brought back. Yeah. I don't want any part of this game I. Agree. I mean I'm saying I'm not impressed with Pittsburgh and. I was Monday night and Pittsburgh has the number one. Pressure. Rate or rating in the NFL. So getting pressure on the quarterback steelers one. Eagles two bills three bucks for Washington five charger six bears seven is all lines up. Brown's eight Green Bay nine. Saints Ten. Eleven. Okay. The other thing real quick that scares me to your point. You know steelers number one pressure bud. Duprey might not play Le Duprey and what he can do if he's out that makes me not as happy about Pittsburgh either and I just don't want any part of this one. Zero didn't get hurt think of. Defense would be. Loaded we might be talking about a historic defense especially, if you think about in this era, I mean maybe Barclays. How deminers yards against the steelers. But yeah I, love I just lament the team never lined up Big Ben I. Mean we'll see this year but they were just a year or two behind on. Defense. Because if they had this defense two years ago, oh my gosh. This is the shocker and I've been telling you guys this for Awhile Pittsburgh's Oh lines getting old. and. If you look at the rush. Blocking. Pittsburgh number thirty, two by BFF WOW. Laura's they were without to G- is already with new ski and Decastro they get one of them back but you're right they're all old the Castro's old. These a little better. Yeah. I bet as I. numbers a three. He's not in his twenties, I don't think. Well he went to Stanford so he might have been. Three yeah. I I, I. Don't think. You WanNa look quick saved the cashiers age yet. I. You gave me to one. I'd take twice. shoot. What is it? I don't I am now I'm wondering thirty. Yeah, I knew. Three Eighty Yeah Thirty that you and I wanted to to one, but it was right there. But still thirty for lime, it's fine. Counts he's like what thirty three now. He's moving on up. 'CAUSE POUNCEY was rookie during the Super Bowl year ten. So ten. Yeah. He's like thirty two or thirty. Yeah and he he's been hurt his whole career. So. By the way thirty one pounds. Oh sorry. He sees a lot that's interesting. I would had older I remember that draft man I was waiting onto cash his weight, and then it was like don't don't pay and then Pittsburgh was like maybe twenty three or so it was maybe seventy but he dropped he. Had, and then when the team performed didn't pick on my gas and then like steal you know he's a steeler type you know. He's great there the number one rush blocking team. The NFL? The browns Number one part of that this year came to be they played the bangles. Is Lit number thirty, two last year against the run RJ was all over that one yet. Remember the OH. Yeah. But I thought the browns would start slow because they had to new lyme and they have haven't covered either games. On the line. Great against the Bengals Yeah Yeah. I tell you this if may feel could even be the twentieth best quarterback I mean the browns make the playoffs. Well, I guess the one on one yeah I look at that team now so much talent mean it looks like like he's not good though yeah it looks like the cowboys like ninety or whatever. Like you say they got first round picks everywhere forty nine or is it feels like an thank Jimmy is not all that maybe just coaching. I mean, we'll see what this dude does I just ask. You ever see all the right moves matt yes. I His name was Stephan Georgia Vigil Yeah I. Love that that you remember all the right moves like, can you remember the ending? Oh Tom Kerr's remember ahead is the crew member. He does he does the move we tries to bring the guy down by the shoulder pads. Instead of defending the past. Yeah. He was a five, nine cornerback and. The adeane the end he's in the mind and or in the mail he's coming out and he's got his girl and the coach shows up and says, hey you. WanNa. Play football for me at California State or whatever you remember that ending you don't now. So here's what the I no one can explain to me. There was a guy named Roscoe. ROSCO was the guy that was a at the bar. He was running things. He had the mustache he was sexually assaulting his girlfriend it was pretty extreme. And the whole rest of movie it was a he was trying to get back at Roscoe like Tom Cruise. Then at the end when he is offered the scholarship, he takes off his miner's hat. I think it wasn't mine and he throws it. But it's not a Rosco it's one of Roscoe's. Henchman. And he says, Hayes. Billy. Bob Tell Roscoe I'll be seen him around. How could they have ROSCO for that scene? The craziest thing I've ever seen. The roscoe was a meaningless character he was only you know. He was a dude who was bald and had like he looked like. Andy Reid. If he was a coal miner. Yeah. It wasn't like he would say the guide it was hard to get but somehow negotiate I don't want to be in that last. Though The almost like. The. Whole battle with. Fred actually had a dentist appointment he's. Crazy anyway I I always wonder. Why things happen that way when they don't make any sense and it's usually just the guy had appendicitis or but it just doesn't make any sense that he wouldn't be in that scene. Matt was trying to like what I was saying he's I started drifting. Anyone saw the right move. Hollywood have you seen all the right moves I haven't? It's on the list Oh my God list. Yeah. But now I got to see it feels like there's a riding mistake shit. There's somethin' remember on Seinfeld Schindler's list, and then when the high wasn't assigned fell. Out. When they came back from the movie to die goes that list. That Like it or you just never got. You never really got exposed to it. So prior to net flicks, I didn't watch TV shows like I won't have Mussa. If. You missed so many episodes then you're out of it you don't get the little nuance here. So because I couldn't keep up with them and I just work sports and I, I, didn't watch any and now because leg never watched. The Sopranos were better because they were HBO and later, but did you wash I started and I never finish all my gosh. Yeah. I wasn't a huge TV guy back then but now it Netflix's Reichen Benjamin sometimes I like I watched Dexter all eight seasons and whatever a month or whatever and I thought. Wow. That was a clever show and grade and is that why you want to become a lumberjack? No but good call and the ending text the lumberjack. Spoiler. Alert. Yeah. Okay, bill are no. Okay forty nine that's a tiny vikings. So I what was the look ahead? To pass. On Steel Peckham. So two and a half point adjustment we Let's see who's got something here. We've got I got Titans Matt That was my me and Matt Combo. Spurs advice. Everyone listen it was crazy matt. He knows Hollywood he knows videos by the way. The videos have been outstanding. We got another one every day. Now, there's GonNa be some videos something from this. Just at our Jane Vegas on. Twitter or pre game. On Youtube just pre-game TV, all one word. Check it out. You got the tight, but he's not a sports batting guy by design and you're like so what do you think about the back the back spot there and he's looking yeah yeah. If some wine experts ask you if you like the ride, you know it would sometimes I think it's good to get that outside perspective. Really. Yeah. I just was interested in what he had to say on a couple of games. I. Sure but I like the titans here. Yeah I do too. Analysis. Look again, Minnesota's decimated they. They had the worst personnel losses especially on defense of any team the league last year everyone underestimated at because of the coach they literally started putting Zimmerman in a category like ballot check where hey doesn't matter that they don't have any players left at all on defense firm is just going to coach him up and what we found is that's not true. I guess Oh, yeah I mean it's just not true and I actually think Tennessee's scores in both games have got people to believe that they're worse than they are. So this was a team that you the the opening week one by two at Denver, but their kicker missed four straight kicks and they should. The altitude factor, a win against. Tennessee is something. A lot of people won't take into account and actually was an altitude factor in both games. You could argue right because the hangover from the altitude and the shore week carries over into the second week. Yeah. That's what I thought when I had a winner on the Jags? Yes and then last week verse the Jags let's just face it at this point everyone's preseason number on the jags were wrong. Again everyone's preseason conceptions in numbers on the jags were wrong but Tennessee still got it done again and they still hung thirty three points. This offense look at a should've hung a bunch of points on Denver they moved the ball up and down the field game in kicks. This offense has been really really efficient I love Mike Gabel as a coach in the. Defense is I think there I think nationally underrated. Yeah and I think Minnesota could is could be an all win or it could be a wave, the white flag. So fed quickly about Jacksonville you told me this week the reason you you got sucked into that was you were hearing talk radio guys talk about I don't even WanNa is that we said because There was a drop related when the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly asking for help you help. Some. Some people are susceptible to chicanery. Continue. I worry about cousins and. We know that guy that likes routine. Do you documented how? Well Rj he does with that Ten am star ten Jonas knocks on as Lovie was the one that gives the hint and we sniffed it out one o'clock. He does wow other times he does. So now what's number one wide receiver well digs and digs is gone and you got to wonder about a quarterback that likes security and his safety blanket is gone in terms of his number. One weapon certainly seems to be impacting him. It's not a surprise that the Viking defense is struggling but wow, that offense was horrendous last week. This is pregame.com. Research Staff Digs Minnesota's loss buffalo's gain so. COUSINS QBR is down thirteen points without digs. Three points. Josh. Allens is up thirty four points with digs hundred, eighty, four yards per game. other factors would obviously digs is one of them. And Allen had his career best passing yards and we won they said I. Another one, hundred and five on that. At and. He never had more than two, hundred, sixty, six yards per game. Think about that. That's amazing I. Know I don't think he ever had three games in a row that had seven hundred and what would this be? Only still set a career. Over three games. Yeah has double the amount of yards kirk cousins, they both play the same amount of games. That is insane. So digs has one hundred twenty receiving yards. Over two games or no yards per game one, hundred and twenty. Wow and with Minnesota and causes thirty games he averaged seventy two yards. Advertise. Johnny game. Okay. So let's say significant it is interesting that maybe the best. I mean, is it fair to say the biggest upgrade of quarterback this season has been Alan s and the biggest downgrade. Or the downgrade for a team. Minnesota Sodas definitely youngest downright. Digs has to feel pretty good. Yes. Yeah. All right. So pick official pick on Tennessee for Matt the, vague out. All right. He has a pick on the Washington football team and the brand among the browns is seven. CLEVELAND DOWN LIKE CLEVELAND MY seven Cleveland undervalued based upon that Bengal game. They didn't cover only one by five but was all about the bengals going five for five on fourth down conversions getting in the back door hey if you've got five fourth down conversions, maybe you should get three of them. Getting all of them certainly skewed the final scores we talked about how effective the browns rushing game was I came away very impressed with the browns and what I'm not impressed with the Washington football team and Haskins Haskins, the lowest rating Qbr in the league right now and Haskins. If you look at accuracy, I, just looked up next GEN stats. You should be at sixty seven percents. He's completing fifty six percents. He's eleven percent below what he should be. So wait a minute. So last year Josh, Allen was in the five and he was minus two percentage points. Three I think and and Haskins his how many minus eleven who is the second-biggest minds? Don't take a Gander Matt low say you got the green button baby. Wow I want to hear your analysis. I actually like as here I did too but I figured I need some action on the car. So I'm going to fire it right here. I thought that Cleveland had every advantage in the world last week catching a rookie quarterback and his second start. Yeah. In a short week Enduring Cova with no preseason and they couldn't get it done again. And they got whipped week one they didn't Baltimore didn't just beat them and covered the best team in the history of the word. Baltimore could beat him sixty three to nothing that game was embarrassing and then in week two with every advantage short week rookie quarterback not. On the Road Hey oh by the way, we rushed for two hundred, fifteen yards against the worst rushing defense in the league they still didn't cover. I'm on hasn't point I just don't think that this team is all that good and Baker Mayfield turns the football over a ton his decision making his bad and what did you say teams that win the turnover battle cover the spread seventy, percent seventy, seven percent of the time guests who doesn't turn the ball over Dwayne Haskins, zero interceptions in his last four starts he may dinky dunk his yards per temperature low his accuracy is low but you know what I thought was interesting and I watched both Washington Games Haskins was terrible in both games down seventeen nothing philly down seventeen nothing to Arizona, and in both second half. In big deficits having to throw the football zero picks and played really well both erotic they throws a pass the interceptor. To who was the second furthest and went smile nine percents cheese. Went. It's about I. Tell You the coach is I doesn't look good for once now now now, check this out. So how on the pronunciation here WASHINGTON HAS ELITE GUARD BRANDON Looks like Sheriff Sheriff Jonathan Surf S. C. H. E. R.. SCHERF? And this is from Bill. I think. I'm not sure without him leaves another hole and what might be one of the worst lines in football. And he's expected mystery to five weeks. So if you have a bad quarter on the IRA. So I think it has to be what's I think it's three. They changed. Video, you're right. You're right. So either way out this week and I mean, Haskins. If you can't run. You can't I mean. It's like the theory is when you have a bad line, you better have a quarterback they and create. I think the browns are, GONNA get up big they're they're gonNA just keep running. You know running the ball but also I think they'd love to get a nice win I lean towards size but he's right. Is Brown seen doesn't seem to ever win I. Mean Again, the famous handicap from you. Faz why are you betting against the browns? Brown don't win had winning year and twelve years. How can you not cover that Thursday night game with every advantage in the world in you rush for two hundred, twenty yards against the worst rush defense but you still can't. Help Baker through his one interception Donna post pattern and with Baker throws those week. They are being beggar just like we talked about with James Winston because he led the League in yards and we said, hey, will some weeks deal with this new coach new system? He's not going to throw the picks, but he threw him every week Baker throws them. Make. A think of it, this way Hollywood Brown's lose. Right and kids gone levels gone I mean there's a sometimes in life or simple logic. You Miss that story. All right. So we have an official crossfire. But I'm staying out, I'm staying out of the carnage. Eagles Bangles Eagles no no no. No. The Eagles are five points against the bangles. And it's in Philly. Is that right Yup. Wows look five and a half. What? Yeah. Wait a minute, the rams to the eagles were favored by two I think the look ahead of six and a half right eagles going by the sheet. So, let's think about this Eigen Eagles favored by two at home against the rams. Their favorite. So the rams and the banks are four points apart, not even close what's going on. Look ahead crazy we'll get is crazy. I mean now. Now because I think now makes sense. 'cause I mean the downgrade the US what maybe two points off last week. Yeah is that what you? Say. I lowered the Eagles two and a half points. I had an initial rating on Tuesday night another power rating on. Friday. Fair Oh, I'm saying two and a half points last week I'm saying after Sunday's game. How much did you down more point? Sh-. Every week it's to lose. You know what it's going to be if you lose. A point, if you win, you go up point and how what you downgraded him two and a half, and somehow that was one of your favorite bats was a team that just got downgraded the most you've ever seen. Anyone and you were the one sane and then I and and then they had four lime. Yeah and there was cramps remember Yup. Why did? Doesn't make any sense. Look ahead was six and a half or at least at West Gate was okay. All. Right. Well, the thing about the look ahead is the opener. There's the potential closer I'm always interested in that but you never you always see the opener out there before it gets touched up. and some books I saw were five and a half looks like whiskey gave six I. so neither you guys have anything on this I mean is this just we're scared usually I would like to say this is the low. This is rock bottom the eagles, the eagles because literally what we're saying here. So. When the browns played the bengals With that in Cleveland. Yes. My six. Okay. So what they're saying is philly well I guess really worth with the Bengals got a Lotta respect there to then day. For a bad spot. Yeah. Not, only a bad spot. Aboard I mean Cleveland was coming off team rubbing. Coming off a rub yeah. You're right. You're right. All right. LET'S KEEP You didn't do any announces any points Dave I'm just waiting for you say. Sorry about that, just the bengals against the browns bengals four yards per play around seven and a half. So that's butt kicking on the stats in still current cover still concur. So who do you give me your handicap in his day my past completely, but give me your handicap pass completely means that you don't maybe start with you. Pass. Completely means you the factors add up to you the lines, right but there are factors, right. So we saw both extra rest team extra rest team. So last week Kansas City in Houston both failed to cover so I don't know that you know we thought hey extra rest in Pratt might mean more this year those two teams went over to last week it's one week right lesser. Casey was getting ready for Baltimore Chirp, but whatever the reason they went to last week. I'm not eager to jump on the extra rest teams just because they have extra rest for me. This is a Philly or pass situation and maybe phillies terrible. But. If they're so bad that they can't cover less than six at home against Cincinnati, then this might be the biggest misread preseason misread that we've seen in five or six years. They have got to be the most desperate to team because they're not just oh, in two, they're not supposed to be and there's a lot of pressure on the quarterback. I got him here. I mean, like this is like this is the Warren Buffett Cigar with one puff laughed right what was the wind total for the browns? Eight and A. and. To The browns are supposed to be clearly above average team. Yes and they were favored by how much against NC five and a half six six So what would the win total on this eagles team be if the season started over meaning, they are Oh to, but we saw these two games. Can't be over a right I was thinking at seven and a half I don't even know how eight then how is this line value then if the browns or an eight and a half? At home on Thursday. Right, against rookie QB, this feels identities saying that relatively the eagles are better. Right SUPPO- in the in the range I guess. Yeah. So. That doesn't seem like the Eagles are getting discounted all that much. No. All right. You know one thing about the bangles they might be undervalued because you know I lost that how that love a job Joe Borough. I think. Has 'em overvalue yeah I do too that defense is so bad. I mean Cleveland just handed the ball off and those guys all dove around missing that is the worst rush defense in the history of football one thing I saw from the Bengals in the second half is, is that I had a prop an Jay Green for usage I lost and borough. Weena Earl kept throwing them in the first half and ag green did not look good and then the second half when the bengals stirred moving the ball, he stopped throwing nearly as much day. Jay Green and spread it around to his other receivers and the bengals were more effective. In. So. If the That borough will continue to do that. You use AJ green less forward recognizing he just was not good. He did not look good but why is like? A prop Pani Condo I. Think the bengals offense will be more efficient throwing less stage. You you the one that just said how you should bet AJ Green over your I. Don't ever agree that your offense can be better if you're most if your best players just a decoy if you think we're gonNA utilize our best player I. Don't think he's the best player anymore I think they'd be not tyler could be but I also didn't think they did a good job with Joe Mixing because at the end of the game, the problem is they play Gio Varney Bernard every time they get down and have to throw the ball and Joe Mixing. The Cincinnati's well coached I. Do know that they be nuts and football I mean there's There's so many reasons to play Philly here and yet I didn't bet it and no one wants to. That's how bad this. Situation is next game mattie whole vague with a pick on it. It's Falcons bears. The Games Atalanta bears are three point underdogs. Saying the foul are slightly better where you got my. this is going to be the worst handicapped but I picked it. So I know someone you know everyone knows Mardi, Mush Guy Right and Marty Mush told me this week that the Falcons are going to be so demoralized because after you lose a game, you like you did to Dallas how can you ever get up again and I'm thinking yeah. All right. I mean these guys are all by the way. Atlanta's stunk the last two years, right? Sound like they were competing apples here. Too. So I completely ignored that and said, what is the spread supposed to be on this game? It's three and a half four. Yet in this contest sometime they're they're taking this stance here at West Gate, and we know you'll a lot of times they're fairly decent at this. This is going to be three I've yet to see three. I, there's there hasn't been a three one ten in the market I. Don't think all week it's three and a half or three twenty. So I think the value here is at three, one, ten, it's on the Falcons. So you're saying. That West good at predicting the Lai moves, but for example. On that San Fran. Arizona game we one they thought he'd go six and a half and it did incorrect right so they're not perfect. They tried to jump the jets last week. Because they thought. They knew it was gonna if that's Reiner and today that didn't work out, ended up closing seven in the jets, beat him by whatever I mean the San Fran beats him by whatever they want. So they actually so far this year haven't been good. And I think that they jump the gun here like they really anticipated this going to three and I'm not sure it's a three, one, ten finish and that's what we're doing. Here by the way teams, the score thirty seven or more points to lose. The next game there thirty, eight and seventeen against the spread sixty, nine percent. And that's since nineteen, ninety five. So sixty nine percent when you score ton and you lose teams giving up a lead of more than seventeen points the next game fifty, seven percent against the spread thirty, three and twenty, five, one push. So both scoring and losing giving up a big lead doesn't hurt you the next week. Historically helps you. Yeah. I think that's fair and Mardi Mush believes does. There you go. You know I i. think we actually have him batting here. Let me hold on can. Teams in the National Noliwe in the American. Every game. Owning Mahoney. Yeah. Yeah. That's great. Yeah, it is good. Machine. He was great Oh. That's my I haven't played that one in a while. But I always liked that he's rushed out the door so he says gives you. Man's thinking Oh, i. wish I had him yeah. Actually, having the vague on your side. Now you know what the the sharps and the grinders confined so much that it becomes not enjoyable. We want to get back there behind the counter create on new markets. But he still you know that's actually an interesting point. I remember. I was sitting poems with Chris Andrews when he was working with us and I was saying, what about this? What about this is whether this correlation is that court you know these little tiny core aleisha. And I get it. If you're both major, you got to consider that stuff but. Look at how bad that got killed last year with those openers they're doing it again this year and it is even worse. They had a total this week that was seventeen points the moved seventeen points in like forty minutes because that's how far here's how can it be fun. Then next week to go back in there over the weekend and make numbers again and It just at some point you just get and then fezzet. fezzes of the world taken every teaser parlay card and go into every book and filling out fifty of them because he had a Typo on one and just just so I mean literally just so he does have to work a straight job. Yeah. It's not that bad to work fast. I mean, it wouldn't be the end of the world Well, I do this. No sex no booze no drugs little rollers purist as a goddamn thoroughbred. All he cares about is the next hand. Love it. You know we forget the Hitman I forgot has a pig on the bengals egos. He has the total over forty six. Let's listen. Angles Eagles over the forty six and I like it all the way up to forty eight bengals earn overcame the season Joe Baron Pretzel off. Sixty one past performance against the browns who defense is a pass on all similar to the eagles defense both browns and the Eagles defense are similar in the fact that stout up front and stout against Iran but they struggle on the back seven. The Eagles Pass defenses ranked twenty seventh in pass defense delay away, and they just allow jared goff to throw for nine yards attempt against them who's the under study to Sean, mcvay who just put on tape the way to attack this Eagles Defence Bengals, head coach Zach Taylor. I also. Think, the Eagles are over team right now, which is a perfect recipe for eagles points against the bengals defense at struggles. In every aspect of playing defense, the bengals pass rush only four quarterback hits in two games and their run defense allowing five and a half yards per carry two opposing backs the Bengals or one of the few teams can expose the Eagles offensive line woes. The only reason that both these defenses do not have a worst season statistics is because a week one matchup against below average Washington and chargers offenses the reality. These defenses is more similar to the week two performances when they took a step up in competition. Best Bet Eagles bengals over the forty six. Any opinion guys on the total. No I'm going to pass I like it. Yeah I think by. The second half, the borough really picked up his confidence what a contrast to the first game against the chargers. My only fear here is the recipe to beat since he has been made clear thirty two ring thirty second ranked defense dead last in the NFL against Iran last year. Look what they did. Last week does anyone think gets any better that was an embarrassment they're the. Worst rush defense in the NFL again, and Philly is getting killed trying to protect Carson Wentz. So what is philly probably going to do because everyone in the world has seen it run the football against the bengals that might shorten the game that scares score touchdowns in the red SOx or maybe Cincinnati PF Hasim Rushdie number twenty so two games, but I'm not saying that's right but. Worth noting how can they be number twenty when they've only played two games they just got lit up for two hundred, thirty yard talk to Chris Collingsworth. Are I would throw the challenge fly like Chris we gotTa Talk. Well since he's screwed over Russell well, maybe they had a really good first week who is the Bengals Week one game I forget. chargers oh. Yeah. Was Super Sixteen to thirteen in the charges didn't move the ball. But when you combine them both thinking about this, how good the charges De la Got Really feel about this inside of the off if you like Phil you almost kind of like over. I mean, the the Bengals scored thirteen points game. But what I'm saying is they did that made it look like they were in apt but in if you see how good that dee was, that was probably an average performer slightly below average and then against how much they put up against Cleveland is that the low scoring game of the year as any team score below thirteen in a game what I'm saying is against trump I mean how many Kansas City score for the forty three? So I mean if the best offense and the in, let's say historically do well against Kansas City defense since he got thirty. Yeah if you put up thirty against the browns and only on a short week, ten points last than Kansas and Kansas City score those points late late late they did. I'm not saying it was great. I'm just saying it doesn't look as bad as it see. Yes, I mean I wouldn't want the under in Kansas. City game I mean in a in a Bengals bengals got a touchdown call back in the final minute and then Mr a chippy field goal. So to say, the only got thirteen is and you can put an asterisk fight against the chargers. You producers by anything. You could find a whole lot of if Sinn Butts, coconuts, and NFL betting. That's well that's where he lives on. A hurry next game. Falcons should you you? You don't have anything on the bears foulkes just edlund as defense I think that the market right now it's three point one, five. Okay and I think the fact that Atlanta is giving up six point nine yards per play worst in the NFL. Yes. They played Seattle in Dallas to really good offense and I ask why? You say three point one five. So I'm looking at three and a half one, ten, three and a half even three minus twenty, three minute quarter I see one, three, eighteen and you're saying three minus three point one five and I don't see anybody that. South Point Spun spiders three elbowing. Them bookmaker both mice three late nineteen, twenty when they nineteen that's halfway that's three point two five right there. Right. Now. Like three men nights nine cents above and I. All right. Fair enough fair enough. Right so yeah, I mean I three point one five I think it's three point, two, five I don't want to get to argument about about. The three and south plan. So three point two to remember it south point doesn't go off a three with with right right so. If it's if it's three point, four nine or I'm sorry three point two, four, they're going to be at. That's yeah that's right. So you know I think it means it's a little less than three point two five. But by the way we start screaming into my. Argument. In. The FAM-. Back Atlanta's toward so care it was just funny that you say by Dell's remember. Find a book that was Alles. was down three linemen. So last week and yet they still put up forty online. Okay. They should have only put up thirty seven you get the idea that Atlanta Defense has really disappointed but the bears offense isn't that good coming into last week I mean they beat the lines the Bundu get some guts. Here we go. The. Number three though. Yeah plant these. Just took the worst thing. I don't care. You know something I'm GonNa get in his head I'M GONNA press I'm on Mattie side. We have. The best. We definitely have the best. Now if you give me twenty bucks, I won't price. Way. Oh. My God. I don't have it. Four lucky fourteen all right. I'll take you owe me six. Dollar tip. What do you think that I can't believe he paid you? And he hit it against me I didn't want it. That's the point. That's the beauty of is it's like when someone raises an poker game and it opens up all the raising Bohio. Take it de. Rj knows me like. Go for that wall and fence just hates that was the biggest we're haunt. I have seen come on Fez get some bulbs teaching says you want more. For more before the bullets. That the nicest that you ever said to me. I'd ever seen any reedited thirty seconds. I have a good instinct. We got high. That's a little. Slice of life when they're. There you go. Then yet I'm serious. That's a good to manage. Get some guts. Where's the? Dollar. Was the best part Kiro in and out a little bit dollars Oh my God. Has Grown. That was great. We gotTA close, of with Steve. He's trying to get to the wall. But now I'M GONNA lose. That he paid off. Think about poor people making minimum wage, two hours of work yeah. Yeah You're smart. 'cause you know hit just Karma was bad exactly. Yeah. I bought a win against matt either. I'm nervous. Go to minute ago. All right codes. Fez this blew my mind. So we get you hadn't Minnesota right. Yes I think we've mentioned the haven't we once or twice. But. Indianapolis had warned the worst losses in the year right against Jacksonville Yeah. And they win one game. Do we still believe that? VERSE VOLTS A bad loss for sure that's eight and plus I mean. jags fought hard but they were down that whole game right? It's a good point evaluate Jacksonville based on how good we know they are. We think they are now versus how good we thought they. You have graded them from like preseason the we you know day before the game I think it's possible are one of the top. Thirty and upgrades four point. Yeah. That's been pretty substantial. So let's just say a bad loss jer bad I agree that's founder percent. So now. You have them where you're fading them at home at pretty much smidge better than Minnesota was the line and you've got him number eleven in your power ratings. Yes. That's crazy like you had them in New Orleans tied effectively just behind New Orleans. That's crazy. How could a team that lost Jacksonville and YOU FADED AGAINST MINNESOTA? New. Orleans. How effing wrong I was on the on the Minnesota gave the. I watched that Jonathan Taylor there do running back who didn't look good week one just look great against Minnesota. So now Marlin MAC is not the loss I thought it would be for Indianapolis. Now Remember Indianapolis lost the key safety. Pool that. Up. And they had one other. No. So me hooker. Out For the year key safety for them. I. Mac is death. Okay and Paris Campbell like their second or third receiver. I got two things on the jets. This is from Wfan. And this is finding it goes for about a minute. Oh. Oh Have a good time. Enjoy Yourself The absolute disgraced that the New York jets. So everybody knows already what they audited worst. To even football twi far let's be honest I mean two games they played. They've been not competitive in either game. Let's be honest about it. Should we yell about them Garoppolo plays you know plays the first half I want lake. So yes yes. I guess the word is dating compete. This was not a core additive game in anyway as they get just destroyed by the San Francisco Forty niners. Forget even at you gotta half a yard. How about a quarterback sneak there how about Donald runs up to the line we've seen I just love how like in a bar you know they'd be saying they can't even get a fourth. Ready for one hundred years. How `bout he runs up to the line and just being quarterback sneak get the first down. You don't have any. Just. Doing nothing. We ever see him do that. Do we ever see Sam darnold throw the football. Down First Down Marker on third down to we ever seen. Like something. You ever see. How pro-? How bad is this head coach late let nobody thinks td's take a shot they get their first down. YOU'LL MR offensive genius Christopher. Johnson of course not of course. I love local radio and they do a batch new. York Body. As you had the judge. I did. What was the thinking there was? An anti forty niner and. Jets rush defense which got torched. I just got a little piece of advice I'm not trying to be critical. Well. I just have a lien on the colts game headline in this game was seven by the way, and so now we're what ten and a half eleven in the context in Lebanon the contest, the jets don't have any wide receivers and other wide receivers are hurt. So Perriman, questionable Hogan questionable and crowder outer with a hamstring crowder's the best receiver they have left. Yes, and the jets don't have a running back Frank Gore three yards per carry. So you've got darnold who can't play no all line, no line friend who align and no skill position players know thank you to the New York jets. Oh, by the way, we got a theme song for Darnell. remains. I heard that one. Like that, I do have a derivative bat. I'm sorry. We're. Talking about about. Attention wasn't on you every Sagi- tell me that derivative. Hit me with the derivative I. Mean Your hit is yeah. Well, hold on hit derivative but let me give you one piece of advice owner. Jonathan Taylor rookie of the year seven to one right. Herbert's thirty quarterback. And he's going to run the ball Marlin Max. Not there you got what's going to be the bell cow back he should get thirteen hundred yards. The do they say? How Parents. So? Eager, right we're talking about Casper. Jumped in with the Lifetime. Here's. Say. God you are thought it was going to be like. The first quarter on your. Bro. All he says like three were a daughter the Taylor rookie here. It's up about online. Welcome through the. GIVES YOU Want to hear this. Is A team that should win nine or ten games could win more. So here's a team on against. MINNESOTA. Especially the play. MINNESOTA. But so we get a rookie that's going to be on a good team. So all these other rookies that we're looking at like Joe Borough. Potential with the chargers Herbert they're. All going to have to get the award despite having a losing record probably. So here's the rare case. We got a rookie on a really good team and that's why like. And who is it? Jonathon Taylor boozy play for place Indianapolis. They're running back to the really good but you had Minnesota against them. Last week Jonathan. Taylor, had a subpar first game and I was questioning whether he could fill in for Marlin Mac and he kicked asked last week. Cash Funny. I have like side Bostick. Almost hurt. You funny. Is it took me four hours to do that because this is what it was. Casper. Started in the forties I don't know if you know that or not I didn't I thought it was seventies. Yeah. There was that one cast for the. So. This was the everyone they had one, forty three I think and they had the first one with Casper. This was actually kind of heart wrenching. So Casper is a ghost. Yup Right. I don't know if you know that I know actually what it is. Yeah. Asper the friendly guy. So. What happens is he he dies a kid died first of all, let's go to a ghost his dad, right? That's a tragedy right there. then. Everyone's scared of them. He he people can see him everywhere. He goes people. See I was the cartoon, right? Yeah. They're scared of him. So he's like walking around like almost suicidal at one point he's walking towards a train, but he's a go. She can't he? He's. He's like attorney already dead. Yeah there's no escape. then. He finds a Fox, a little Fox that likes them. And he's playing with the foxy. So happy. And then hunters com. Oh my God sure Ca- forged. And this is on the show. Oh man and then here's the beauty though he's at the grave we've been of the Fox. The Fox shows up as a ghost. The now he's got a goes. Got It. Yeah. Yeah. So in the first episode when he introduces himself, he says. He names. And he's trying to ingratiate himself and they just scream and run. But here's the last piece that was in the forties that version. So I had to do a lot of post production but the theme song right there didn't is from the Casper theme and like fifty six but it's the only time you get that where feels like almost like sonic brandy right Hollywood is it so separate? It's like if you listen one more time, it's the same song and Casper's. Like Kate in twenty says it because? Cost. It's the same thing and I actually sink them up. Those are separate wants from fifty six to forty three. So you get the intro. So people want to do this more often every time darnold name comes up I'm GonNa play that like boot every time is it's going to be you're gonNA hear that. Sonic. Branding and then be ready. When you hear my name is key. 'CAUSE laughter every time. Yeah. But feds luckily you got your picking and we didn't get a chance to really enjoy that. Maybe actually played every time. He said it to I said, you know I have to look. You know I- aplenty APP. Ricky the Europe, like this is like a water bug. WHERE'S THIS NUMBER COMING FROM JERSEY? So. Do you realize that? I mean only people in the available it's rookie of the year it should come back up. So really you're looking. For a place that one of the fifty states can bet yes. You got anything on this now, I can't anymore. You're a true man it's almost like. He's a special sued. He's. All right chargers, panthers charges get some respect here at home six and a half. No one's got anything to give us does one or two things I. Don't love it when we overrate teams on a law so. You know. Yes I think we all know that the chargers defense is pretty good. They only allowed thirteen points regardless if it should have been sixteen or nineteen, they only allowed thirteen to the bangles. You know they held the chiefs and check this defense is pretty good but I don't know about this offense at all. And I feel like maybe they're getting a little inflated because everyone loves the new Toy Justin Herbert first game three, hundred yards chargers defense is awesome. But on the other side, I can't touch this game because I think Christian McCaffrey and it's not just me the fantasy world a player proper old says Christian McCaffrey is the most important non quarterback team non quarterback to his team in the entire national football league and now he's out so and you know what we know about the chargers. They usually have good pliers usually the wise guys like him and they lose. That's right and what happened last week. We. Think both teams have attractive features to them? The chargers play very well of course against Kansas City. But Carolina. Sneaky good game against Tampa Bay I. Know They lost by fourteen looks like they got blown out. But. Maybe that's about how bad Tampa Bay though let's be honest that raiders result looks better now after Monday night for Carolina to. Yes. That's a good point and the fact that Carolina one against Tampa Bay by one hundred yards. So it wasn't just a little bit despite losing by fourteen bad. beat the of the week with the fifty yard rushing touchdown at the end of the game under two minutes to go to get the margin to fourteen. So maybe, Carolina. Valued Robbie Anderson's fit in. Well, you know I remember now. We have McCaffrey out. Yeah. Now you were saying two and a half point where does where's that come from that? Just just saying he's worth more or you saw something in the market. So as so I mean think last year he was like what third in the League interceptions at out of the running back position is just a general assessment yet, and so he makes up so much of the offense what we saw from Teddy. Bridgewater. In the first two games as he threw for six hundred yards, two games. So why was He able to throw the football because opposing defenses are saying, Hey, let's go out and stop one player. Christian. McCaffrey. Any eighteen avatar rushing yards in either game or receiving yards, and thus teddy bridgewater was able to throw it open receivers. But now Christian McCaffrey has gone. You know who the backup is Mike Davis anybody heard ever heard of Mike Davis probably not. So at the end of the day, now, the pressure's GonNa be on Teddy Bridgewater to manage a passing game without that great running game and a historically he hasn't done so. What did you think when Casper's friend got? killed. Bambi. Bambi mom died. Your. That was weird. Where'd you think we're JFK got shot I was eleven days. Eleven days. On November twenty. Second. Nineteen sixty three. Do you hear the sound effect. LISTEN BE SILENCE FOR SAGGING TRY. United that's me. You realize you two times I played it, and you just talked right over. I think he thought I laughing know he didn't know he knows he's like a hedgehog. going. Towards the. MIC. That's fun. So we'll say like the plane went down. Don't hedgehogs like go backwards and like cover up though I always know the fi the president Reagan said there was the Fox and the Hedgehog the Fox knows a lot of things. But only with a little bit of passion Hedgehog knows few things but he focuses on. So there's a single mind. Say you want to talk into the mic I got next game. I Don Yeah I here's what I see. Overall. As you said that between the first second team and the rest of the League never seen that kind division meaning the distance from Baltimore and Casey okay. I Pre-. True. I'm saying that WHO's the worst team? Yet. Yeah. That's that's all right. So what I'm saying is the jets are team. You would just anxious to bat against the defending Super Bowl champions getting what seven at home yup so. I, look at something like Carolina and think just add a point and a half McCaffrey. It would've been five. You're saying this chargers team at home. So two points you're saying that there are only three points better on a neutral then Carolina with McCaffrey and Carolina's you run the worst teams. Right I don't know that they were supposed to be one of the worst wages. Really disadvantage defensive. Yeah. So teams will. Washington. That's pretty much it. The thirty first thirty, eighth thirty I'm Jacksonville sick. So yeah, thirtieth. Yes. So let's call it twenty eight. Th Right I mean what I'm saying is if feels lake in their own. Three I mean maybe Tampa I mean in your power ratings I mean Dallas gets respect I. mean there's like five or six teams getting respect, and then it's all a big three or four point hodgepodge. Yeah. And I'm going to be tempted to look at the team. I've been tempted a couple times say, oh, that's short number. I think we're MIS perceiving how bad the quote unquote bad teams czar potentially and how good the quote unquote good teams are. I mean. That's my thought. Okay Lien's. Mattie passes thank God cardinals. You know something this another example I guess there's an adjustment because this is effectively the same line as the Green Bay line. Correct, right. Yeah. I mean it's a half point. We're saying the cardinals as good as Green Bay half point worst in Green. Bay. And that seem to Lee showing a big downgrade. I wanted to take the lions because I thought for that reason. I. Thought Man Arizona's not Green Bay. But then I thought I have fallen into that bear traps so many times that I am not doing it even if I'm right I don't WanNa go out in that you know. If you get a chance out there vote or before on Detroit's 'cause you know Mattie now you gotta make sure Matty you should commit by noon eastern on Sunday to tweet I'm not officially I'm not betting the lines and it will free people up. Twitter account at Matthew Holt, USA USA, I matthew whole USA and stands for. Integrity, yes sir. Dot Com. You got anything on this. Yes. Might Derivative game of the week. Okay. I don't you wait until I was in the mid over skit. Sorry I didn't know this. First half, I liked Detroit second-half I like Arizona, and I took the lead where you went and talked about how Detroit keeps collapsing all these games I looked at their numbers under. Patricia. So turns out in the first half. Detroit is basically a five hundred team. They're numbers are most almost dead even what they score versus their opponents in two, thousand, eighteen, two, thousand, nine, hundred, and two, thousand, and twenty. But in the second half this Detroit Lions Team Collapses Two thousand eighteen they get out scored by two and a half points per game. Let's bet these Mo- foes in the first half. Yeah. Yeah would. Then, we get three and a half. Yes. Yeah. What's the number say right now? Three point four yeah I think right now I'm in done. Yeah. GimMe a dime if you go. Your in. Thanks. GIMME THIRTY BUCKS I won't. We WanNa bet this. No because I mean I if this team has any chance and not firing Patricia, they got to come out here but did they get up they're going to start freaking out all my God. So what I'm saying is we avoid all that. You learn anything that. Every minute. I thought this was one of the best ones he actually read the stats. This might have been the best hate that we've come up with this week the fact that they are literally from a statistical standpoint maybe the worst team in the NFL in the second half. But in this is not just the classes either that's right. Not just the collapse just overall since Patricia got there yet in the first half they're above average team that was pretty yeah. Actually did some work I thought it was really good. Work after you like like. Go ahead and gave me one was talking about Detroit though. You you originated the concept of I I the second half. So it was really good. It's really strong because it's bigger drop than we would have thought and I. Think it even, and this is where in Maddie I think we've talked about this so we can keep it fairly short is in general the books don't account for these things. The limits are low enough. The bats were shape it up and they like to use their second half numbers to help mitigate risk from the full game anyway a lot of times. But yeah, they take market number and shaded to mitigate risk, and if anything you could see them saying maybe in the second half we shaded if he rises or a certain level of attention, but the idea of the inverse doesn't I don't think resonates as well. So I think it's a even less likely they do that. So what's the official Matt Posted A first-half? Detroit lions my saviour ten. And is it a blind bet second-half? Can you think because of that status? So prevalent? Year if you blind bet detroit every second half across the lead if they're behind I I, mean. I know. Whatever it is it Causes Patricia would be in theory lack of adjustment right or it's lack of condition they gave up they blew the fourteen three lead to Green Bay and they were already down like what it have. when they blew that bag, it was seventeen fourteen and then stafford through pick six to start the second half if I recall correctly. But I'll say this about why love Arizona Second second-half Arizona is not fallen the normal rules of end game play with the lead. So we saw when they're up twelve against the Washington football team, they were wing in the ball all over the field with six minutes to play throwing it four out of five times. That's t actually were avoiding I mean that would've causes not to like Detroit. Yes because because. GotTa, live it baby. GotTa. Love it. All right. Next game I'm have we got to play there I didn't expect. Bay broncos. Brady. broncos at home six. What was the look add? Three and a half. A Tuna Point Jasmine points for lock your estimate wise. Yeah. Okay. let's see here. We've got broncos from FAZ yeah. I like the broncos and. Tom. Brady. And how I. Don't like what I'm seeing from him maybe he'll improve as he gets more use with his his players, but the bottom line is it sure you know that Gut test on this when you look at it and you see the broncos catching six against the team that I feel is overrated. If you look at Tampa Bay who's better the titans or the bucks I think pretty comparable teams and that. Line Titans were what would you say who's comparable Tampa Bay Tennessee tight? I agree with that. All right. So if anything tampers the low rated yeah. Just a just a smidge. Yeah. So if you look at Tennessee and they were laying three right at Denver and now at six and I understand the quarterbacks different but there's a such big difference between three and six on the line I like Denver. I. So let's take a gander here. Tough for me. Yeah. I I think we're missing or I think fezzes missing some stuff here so I'm just go ahead man I'm I'm points statue jumping. Yeah I'm borderline pressing the body and I mean I first of all, I, agree with everything Fez said in principle if not for this injury list and we talked about injuries this week I think Denver might. I was trying to there's teams that we talked about San Fran and of course, because San Frans- it's hard to say anyone's worst but was saying, France a bunch of guys might come back this week George Jimmy G. They might actually get a bunch of guys back. Denver is not look at this list of the Denver out mark bear in the starting linebacker demarcus water the starting demarcus Walker the starting defensive end their number one wide receiver Portland Sutton bolt their number one and number two cornerbacks and boy a and Draymond devante Harris. They're both out I. Mean They are Nice and Tito? Colon Poe. Dame either I mean von Miller the week before the left tackle. Lawrence go over. I mean, this is the guy you build their certain defensive players can do things others can't and you bill defenses around him. That's right and von Miller might have been slipping last year the stats he was psychologically I'm not sure if the if Denver just there isn't just a case of post traumatic stress, syndrome where they just feel like they got waylaid and your number two receiver Jerry Judy has the drops and a rib injury, your number two I running back, Philip Lindsay's out your starting quarterback drew lock I mean it's just unbelievable. It's like San Fran it's like, wow, like seventy percent of the starters are out. One of the things I've been trying to work on is we sit here. There's nothing worse than WanNa be wise guy that says I wanna one if it wasn't for the turnovers Oh. Yeah. Because sometimes turnovers you can predict. So let's look at the crash array here. Tampa Bay. Pro Football Focus Wow this is actually surprisingly bad. Now, away, I must have missed them at the top Tampa has got the fourth best pressure in the League Pittsburgh Philly Buffalo Tamp Okay now this is where work pays off fast. Is Driscoll played pretty well and Sunday. That's great. But he got sacked six times on forty drawbacks as a fifteen percent sack rate. And when he played. In his career he has a sack rate of eight point eight percent All right. So you've got a guy that's Not particularly mobile but let's just takes a lot of sags with a high pressure defense. I see a strip sack and or worse yet an injury who's a third stringer I don't know you don't WanNa know it's. A guy named Royce Freeman. Royce. Oh eight if driscoll gets injured, it's Brat rippin. Yeah. freemen's are running back. Yeah. He's emergency quarterback. So Brat rippin now unless he's Mark Ripping State is that right? That's raise from Boise state yet not good. So. If you're getting sacked almost ten percent of time, you're going against a team. That's no. They knocked that guy I mean they probably blitz a little extra early. I'm seeing some fumbles and I only got Melvin Gordon I don't have a backup running back. So I can't just run to mitigate that. That's the I mean that's a great point and I in campus looking at str- i, tell you this they get a lead they're gonna be stretching their wings man. Let me ask you. We We look for sex for Tampa Bay over two and a half is a little extra vague. Now, you understand market better than me. So I mean that typically normal number. Yes. So what happens the books typically the SAX? Small liquidity right by usually what they do is they put a four now for four to five on the game on the individual team totals they usually just put two and half as the default and they moved the vague around. But I think this is a case where who cares we got like one sixty and that comes out on Sunday morning at Sunday morning I tell you this just because I want to root for it. I mean you know obviously. Because you're executing but just tax me Sunday or email me Sunday morning we know what we got. I liked that because if they're not accounting for, it's not like this guy it's known. You know if it's a starter, maybe they adjusted right I I'm guessing that. You know I just happened to do some reading this week on this stuff, and here we are a love it. I like it could show me. Let's keep. We're almost done yet. Let's hit. Hey, we're moving. I. Mean Five interrupt. All right. I tell you I'm putting together. I'm getting my system in place because every week it takes. You know when you add something new, it takes a while to get straight but I I really the hit man you didn't get the me notes digitize. I did not get the man's note I told him splashing to send them to me on Wednesday not utilize got to tell you I am beyond impressed I'm looking at at like rj for those listening. Everyone's listening. He has like an Encyclopedia of Information Front of it's like he's got a PhD thesis he worked on for week three, the him and stuff, right? That's that's Chap one chapter of twelve. I'll let you look at the first page for a dollar, but it has to be cash on the barrel. It's my last dollar. No listen. We obviously have our choice of a lot of handicappers and all that young guy I'm always sceptical young guys. Just got things to learn right. I. Know I did that age when it comes to handicapping and him Mansi he's approaching it diff-. What I like is when a young guy approaches the field entirely differently like dirt head and poker it just you know maybe he was the guy 'cause he was the one that was on TV but he grew a Very successful player but the hit man coming in and say I'm taking daily fantasy. Mentality. Apply to football and I mean, it's good. I mean. I've all the people you trade with I. Mean He's gotTa be right in the top tier. Right is number one right now he's number freaking one I. Remember there was I can't remember there was some running back. Prop at mode bolstered against somebody else and he just got. Inside information that the other running back was going to be injured inside Info and incited by but I'm saying he's just reads and reads and work right exactly and he just gets he gets the information right as it's breaking because he follows all the right people on twitter you know confirm him just out of respect but I'll send you this week. Thank you. Yeah. Because I think more info the batter. All right next game. Yeah. So the cowboys catching five versus Seattle at Seattle. Whoever's got it? All right I'M GONNA. Just full disclosure I'M GONNA go get a snack in a coke zero and you guys and we'll finish up. All right. I. Like the cowboys in this game and I'll go back to that Atlanta game I don't think I've ever seen a game like that and I get it. You can say well, wait a minute. Point one percent chance to win and they won the game onside kick. That's so lucky and fortunate. Dallas's overrated. But I'm GONNA come over the top and say, no, I had the opposite Takeaway Dallas as underrated because Dallas. Could go wrong went wrong three turnovers all them in the first half to fake punts they both fail. Those are many turnovers. So it's like a minus five for Dallas. Atlanta plays a completely clean game. Atlanta gets thirty nine points they have no turnovers. Dallas is still in the game such dowse should've lost by two points because of that I actually conclude Dallas is underrated and if you look at the stats in this game, they absolutely shredded Atlanta. Now, admittedly important that Dallas gets one of their linemen back this week, which may not happen. So I'm a little bit cautious because of that but Seattle's Dion has nothing that I really fear I like Dallas. Lean to your side as well. I again and I'm glad you didn't use the motivation thing. I think sometimes people think Oh my goodness you get that great comeback. It's a big motivational boost and we talked about the demoralization effect on Atlanta, which isn't true. It's been proven statistically that they still win at a high percentage. So to me, the cowboys didn't get a boost out of this game because your defense got shredded is part of the problem but you're right some of those fake punts like it's easy to say that they've had some bad coaching blunders. Why didn't you kick the field goal in the game against the rams you know inside the twenty six minutes to play the Game. Let's say it's a real close call I know. So but but he get scrutinized because it didn't work get scrutinized for the pit fake punts in here. But one of them was wide open the punter dismissed them. He couldn't throw it six yards fake punt. You've got a guy thrown. It doesn't throw it unless it's johnny hacker the Rams seems like everyone else? No. Yes. And I think the narrative right now is Russell Wilson from VP is like is hot as there is in football right now and deservedly. So he's been amazing But at the end of the day I think that maybe there is little value at the cowboys here I don't think I'm going to be playing it myself but I don't want the other side. Me Just goes to show you. Dallas is one of those teams last year this you're getting a ton of respect and the stats say one thing what point do we say? The team. that. The stats are gonNA. Maybe you know almost like the chargers statue can be a little better than their results. 'cause McCarthy seems like the kind of guy. That his girlfriend says, Oh, you're not considered enough and now he's opened all kinds of doors overdoing it opening day for the dog. Now, he's afraid to be old school dinosaur so he's trying to run his own league. Fake Pines that can't be good kicking field goal to tie the game on the road with six minutes to play in what was a tight battle was what seventeen? Fourteen I mean, you kick the field goal nobody's scoring down nine gopher to yeah six minutes which I agree with but again. Now that one. Why don't you explain that one real quick because that one's really been debated on the shows. Okay. So the idea is that. You're going to need a two point conversion at some point you go after the first touchdown or the second touchdown doesn't seem to matter. So mathematically, you'd say it's about equal but I like going for two down nine and here's why we don't because if you miss it, you know you have to be even more aggressive. Exactly. So why is it that ultra-aggressive? Why isn't that default best practice because the old school daigneault's all right but I'm saying years but I'm saying that does nothing to y if you were devil's advocate will recommend anything but going for the only thing is that your team when they see you fail Can rebel against. You say my coach is an idiot. He doesn't know what he's doing. Instead of making a one score game. We'd now it's a to score game. So if the if the team doesn't understand I, mean this is basic stuff. Right? If you if there's a chance and then the theory is you got the chance to go for two for the win if you want based upon the situation. Sure. Right. Because based on how much time laughter whatever So. I think the fear is the teams too stupid to see. It's clearly the right ply. Then you've got the wrong team and ultimately I could say that's what won the game you agree with that. I don't one hundred I. Don't know that I agree I think it I don't I don't think it's a one hundred percent obvious call that you go for to every time because making it a one score game. So important. So. Psychologically because look what if it's twelve minutes to go in the fourth quarter or a minute to go I think if it's a minute to go, you need to make sure it's a one score game still or woman make an extreme example here. Let's let's assume he kicked and he went down eight. All right and would like always like I. believe there's like six minutes left. So there were actually using this real life example reason the real life apple. So now dowse things hey, maybe it's a one. Score situation I will predict what would have happened. They would have gotten the ball back would have matriculated down the field and scored with like ten to twenty seconds left, and then if they fail in their two point conversion, they're screwed and they lose automatically. But because they knew they needed to scores, they went down the field like their their hair was on fire to try score faster and they had a minute after the onside kick. Tell me if this is a good analogy, we're playing some kind of. You Get X. number of bats in some type of roulette tournament. And you get to make like. Twenty seven batch or whatever. And the first place is at a certain place where you're going to have to hit one like what is it when you pick a quadrant or something you can get like number your when I know that thirty, five, hundred, one I'm saying that you can like twelve to WanNa call yeah. Yeah exactly. Right. Let's say you gotta hit one of those. Maybe, one of those. Black when fifty, fifty, you got it. Well, if you are smart enough to go for the quadrant early and let's say you miss it. Now, you would be able to go on the thirty five to one and no you have to take the long shot at that point which in this analogy, speeding up the game. But if you wait until the next to last play or the last play. The column. That's a great analogy. You're. Now you're screwed you lost your, there's a risk you gotta take if you make it or don't make it, it affects your strategy from there. Yes. So why not find that information out or you're denying yourself vital information? Right yes I mean it seems obvious to me and that's the kind of stuff you were winding whining about for years. Yeah. I would say even on Monday I would say it was ninety five percent hypercritical McCarthy for going for to their abbots people can hardly add two plus two their listen. We know for sure none of them have an abacus. I mean, we know that I agree with Matt, and one way we'll move on. and. You said something when I was walking back and said, you said Oh it was a close call one of the things and I'm like that means not the analytics because they never account for human. Reality. So. If it's close go with the old school, but when it's clearly old school. Is when clearly goes wrong. Why go that way? All right. So you guys what was the official plays on this one I like the cowboys. You like them. Yes. Don't you love Russell Wilson? Oh I do what are you were? You Got Seattle U. Rankings believe it or not number three. Okay. But that's almost like by default because there's been carnage in the NFC what San Francisco and New Orleans okay. So I mean, I guess the question is. What is your math? Say the line should be again abacus is date back thousands of years into at least the Greek culture. Only three. You keep reading the Games Buddy. All right. One more game here. Sunday night football packers on Monday night where he did Monday night. Oh, we did. You're right yes. Sir Point I know when we all WanNa talk about great game again, packers plus three at the saints. Okay. Now, this is the saints or better. Up Yes yes. How's your ratings? I Have Green Bay half point better. So saints are ten. and. Green. Bay's what. Ring base fourth but the market said you must have a monster bet here as you know. I gotTA. Tell you. It's very difficult for me to fire on Green Bay. Why? Because I spent the whole summer? He's has a noodle evaluating. How Green Bay was overweight and they're going go eight and now they play to spectacularly good. Games. And I'm like, can I change it so much that I'm only getting three and I'm going to Bet Green Bay at New Orleans. It's difficult. Wasn't is the same thing when Rogers was getting MVP talk when he went I, know he had a west coast trip that went bad. But there was a west coast trip early in the year before that west coast trip. They were rolling right. They beat Chicago opening night if I remember. In the big comeback right yeah. I just thinking. So let's think about these Games Minnesota is dog Doodoo completely I mean you had them last week but I don't think we mentioned that and then they be. and. Then last week. HOW WOULD YOU GRADE FREUD? How am I gonNA Great Detroit Detroit. So what do we know about Green Bay? Is there anything they did they couldn't they couldn't have done last year easily rush for an average, a two, hundred, ten yards, a game against do teams. Jones was pretty good last year too. I mean all I'm saying is that yeah, they went thirteen three. If they do well here I out say, okay three I'm saying it won't be a shot really how different is this than? Any. Other to and it's funny when we have a team is one phenomenon and we last thing eyesight. What what pick disaster have today? Adjust may discard. Oh No. Oh okay. We'll said the Astros got a pick on the giants game. All right. Cool. If a team's not expected. Win. And they go to and like the raiders were all skeptical all your foolish calling for like in them and I think you're right I think we're right there. But if a team is supposed to win. Even. If you skeptical there Aaron, Rodgers are the PAT when they go to not who I was wrong about that one. Why don't you say you were wrong about the raiders Now I give the whole idea the raiders weren't as impressive. Right. I think they were against the same I think some of it has to do with the fact that people were so. I don't WanNa say disillusioned but so focused on some peripheral stats last year they were so mad that the packers went thirteen and three in the peripheral stats said, they shouldn't have gone third time. But. Okay. So they caught some breaks. They were still a good football teams as they were A. They weren't eight innate. They should have been like maybe ten in six and they went thirteen and three. eighths drastically, cowboys should have been ten and sex. Yeah. To couch better than Green. You bring up a great point where I come in with my two folders ready to come into my folder overrated teams and they come with my folder underrated teams and I'm using that. And Green Bay's overrated category and at what point do I say they're not overrated. They're just a this is a brand new year and for whatever reason. Rogers is playing out of his mind so far you know. So but again, Minnesota who hasn't played out of their mind even. I mean talk about Nudo arms even the colds, right? Yeah I mean. The the colts have been playing great and it's not rivers. What I'm saying is that the codes In rivers had a hell of a GAME AGAINST MINNESOTA? Right? What is Pro Football Focus have for run blocking who has number one. Okay. So. RUN BLOG and Cleveland's one Green Bay's too. Yeah I'LL TAMPA story. And that's why like Green Bay right now, just the way that they're running the football but they were running well last year we we're but I think we all undervalued it. And we I remember people were getting on the floor. Oh. Him In in Arkansas and get along run the ball too much. This is you know it's contradictory to what Aaron wants to do I think Erin wants to go thirteen and three and have a shot at winning another title and they're they're doing the same thing this year they're pounding the football which is giving Aaron Rodgers time to throw off play action and he's not even getting dirty in these games is rushing to forty last week. So it's not like he's putting up huge. Run in the ball what odds would you put on? So you got Green Bay four. Yes. So what else would you put on Green Bay making the NFC title game think about that. This will be our last. Matt. You're. Maybe you should go back into old school and make it some odds here yourself. Green Bay odds to win the NFC not to make the just Oh, just to make the title game. It's interesting thinking out loud because I got them ranked the second best team in the NFC right now that's because Michael. Thomas is hurt. So I really think that they're. Top Four. All right. So a number, so I can bet it so. So they gotta pull an upset got one upset probably a two one dog to make the title game which would put them right how that as a number four ring team who is a two to one chock against them That's a good point because three in front of them are from the AFC. So Rochon. How good Seattle is, and if the saints truly aren't good who else could be yeah I, we're not afraid of Dallas right? We're talking someone six or six and a half against them. I don't know that anyone six and a half against Green Bay in the NFC right? You think they're forty percent to make it. Yeah. So you would give somebody like plus one, thirty, five, US one, forty, minus one, sixty no plus one, forty, I mean plus one forty dad bet now. At minus one six. I gotta be honest with you who who Dallas we know Philly's no good. I mean Philly's not going to surge back I. I'm not afraid of the rams it. All here might be the problem with your logic. Seattle might be better like I don't disagree I think you're on the right hunt like Seattle's better but they're gonNA have a tougher path having to go through six games against the rams niners in Arizona where his Green Bay's GonNa Pound on the crappy vikings the lions bears score. That's a great point strength this schedule that NFC west, what is one of those teams live? Is there one loss in the West? Arizona could be like really really good, and here's the thing about Seattle that's interesting against the rush. Seattle's the best rush defense in the NFL oh way. And Against the Yes. The best rush defense surprise. The are the worst. Pass defense in the NFL or the worst getting pressure. There the word now that's interesting. You can be the best that deal on that front seven stopping the run but the worst getting pressure and their number twenty, two coverage. So to me, can you really be passing league? Russell Wilson shoot out able to rush the quarterback unable to defend the pass. Yeah I. Think it's GonNa be all shoot out and it makes you wonder if cam can throw that well. You know we didn't have to. He ran the ball fifteen. Now, he threw in Seattle maybe Cam's not looking as good as you know as easy as we think because he played against maybe the worst pass defense. The we'll say, but that's why they play the game play some. Zeke. Over thirty receiving yards and under what eighty eight rush yards in that game. Well, just wait until I do something on straight Outta Vegas. Interrupt and give US A. I got a rookie year. Great stuff we got the Detroit bets really you don't need a tweet that. GUYS WE'RE GONNA. End With Day diamond. Dave Ass Ler. He's got a pig on the giants game and enjoy that and we'll talk to you next week. Sunday I. Liked it air giants plus four and a half over the forty niners. Yes I do know saquon. Barkley, is out Lewis is a more than adequate replacement maybe even a better option was A. Shifting US against the forty niners defense that won't have near Foege Solomon Thomas is already with Jillian Taylor. Indeed Ford now. Dj Jones Questionable Ankle Injury we number Richard Sherman it'd be tough for anyone outside San Francisco ten name, any of their starting defensive backfield giant so far we competitive if you will. Oh, into this is a game for them they play after rams. At thousand, the next two weeks, they've already played to the better defenses in the League in the bears the steelers so not worried about the forty niners depleted Defense Avenue. Ingram's not back art resent slate and looking good early. I'm not concerned with whether shepherd plays or doesn't hours if he does Kenley Garoppolo obviously questionable DuBose Samuels out most are out even if Garoppolo. Plays Forty niners won't have the offense to get margin against anyone not named the jets last year friendship road early of the forty niners at the Tampa Bay box and Cincinnati after that forty niners average road margin of victory just three point two points now healthy team not healthy. They may not win giants plus four and a half I like it at four.
