Fresh update on "devante" discussed on Arrowhead Pride
"It. Sorta lamar to me. Is the nfl version of been cement right. Like there's some things you can do to build around him. He's got some really really good skills. And i think you can win with them but the one thing that he seems to struggle with is that real important thing for his position and something that he hasn't improved a ton since he's been in the league. That's that like throwing the football thing you know like throwing the ball outside. The numbers liked. Like i now. You have to at some point in the game for every quarterback especially with the office of line of the ravens trotting out there in the running back trotting out there. Devante freeman been reinstated. Good luck with that eventually. It's going to be thirty eight or nine third and seven and lamar's got draw back consistently and make those throws it. Let me tell you something. My man cain and want him to work. I won't l'amour. I'm a fan mostly. I'd like to get vaccinated. But that's another thing i'm a fan i would. I would love for it to work. But it just can't he's not gonna consistent make those throws and then if he didn't do that twice that's probably fourteen points for the chiefs and that's the ball game. I want to get to lamar jackson. I don't know why you just sideswipes devante freeman you know how many injuries the ravens backfield is suffered big. Beat he beat lady onto that now badly. Fiat is now apparently that you know the answer. That question is just down for the is else down for the count. Apparently has no bisbee fell roster sideswiped that man is really asked. Why didn't levy on bell beat him out last. You know exactly. How but devante devante doesn't have forearms like that's dead injuries. Coming up gonna gonna break leading the way. He's going to get the mix. I don't think he's going to have only no way. What what are they going to go with that. Tyson win against tyson. Williams looks good latavius. Mary have the touch on monday. England did you say look good. Are you just saying things. Like the carey's for twenty eight. Your williams looks good. I say latavius berry looks created the fumble and miss the block that lead to them. Losing the game. i. I don't know man like i don't care about those things as much. Maybe because i care about the explosive ability that he had. I'll be damned sure that those coaching Coaching staff cares about that stuff like missing unblock that leads to sacks. Yeah that's that's something. That john harbaugh is gonna care about thirty five yards on one kerry and he had sixty five for the game so like i mean. It's realit- it in on time. But they got a real in their expectations for him. He's the third straight groti bag. What do you expect. You're not gonna get much better outer devante freeman but to the lamar point. I saw lamar at least in my opinion on monday night. Kind of carrying that ravens offense where he was getting no protection from his offensive line. He's down to his third four. String running backs and sammy. Watkins is the best wide receiver that he's got on the rosser and mark andrews just didn't show up. I totally agree with you. That this raven seeing cannot beat the chiefs and that the best team that had an opportunity to beat them was the twenty one thousand nine hundred in because that was the best version of this ravens team. This team's just not in the same ballpark is the chiefs. Am i pink. This is the thing though. Would lamar because like you. You're you're painting half the pitcher right like you're i mean you know. Lamar hit those two turnovers that you know that he likes to have because he's loose with the ball and then he probably could turn it over multiple other times because he's loose with the ball and that that really hurt them like if he didn't turn it over they probably at least in here with a tie at the end of it But but just to win. But but it's how they how he has to be carried. The ravens offense will be carried. Now we're getting carried here in lamar's up here around one hundred and fifty you know one hundred twenty yards rushing and you know and he's gotten a couple of play actions and he's gotten hit hollywood brown or samuel assists be honest man. Who knows if. Sam he's gonna finish this game but if he's got them down the field for deep balls he's a bit easily one. We are another story was saying. But that's a difference with lamar is how he's been able to carry them like in the against the chiefs. The odds that lamar is able to carry the team. The way they need him to carry them are going to be slim. Because they're not stopping the chiefs. They're not stopping the chiefs as soon as they get it like. I said i had another corner. Go down marcus. Peters already out for the season i mean i mean it's just this matchup is just awful for them in every single way. So you mentioned the ben simmons competent. I apologize for non nba fans. You probably know this player though. I actually think there's another confident makes for me a little more sense for him. I think he's russ enough. I'll tell you why you're wrong. Our on it feels like it feels like this was actually going to be better than my comp. Somebody write this down. Because i'm gonna steal this. He reminds me a russell. Westbrook russ is the guy that losses best. When he doesn't have the best supporting cast around him win was the year that russell westbrook was the. Mvp was when nobody else was on. The thunder james harden was gone and kept old and depot again the year that has nobody else's under and the reason is because he was the one that was highlighted and we weren't talking about his deficiencies. We weren't talking about the fact. That team won like forty five games that year and had no chance of competing for any sort of title. It was just fun to watch him because he's different he's unique. He's athletic in a way that very few basketball players are. The same is true of lamar. Lamar is a limited football player. But what lamar does. Well is unlike anything i've ever seen in the nfl. I've never seen anybody that plays the way. That lamar jackson does. Michael vick. probably the closest thing but even that's a little stylistically different than what we watch from. Lamar lamar is a strange combination of running like this. This modern offense that i didn't think would work in the nfl but he does so at such a high level and he is so unbelievably elusive that he makes it work and the ravens are the rare team that actually bought into what he does and they made their entire offense built around it..
Baltimore Ravens Promote Veteran RB Devonta Freeman to Active Roster
"Devante freeman has been promoted from the ravens practice squad to the active roster recently they released trenton cannon and i dunno mike. Do you think there is a fantasy. Fallout to devante freeman being activated to the roster and not necessarily but is it possible. He comes in and get sixty eight carries and one target. Maybe and if that happens that's taking away from tyson
Fresh update on "devante" discussed on Bleeding Green Nation
"Heard me correctly episode. Twenty five of above the nest with free show. We've made it to twenty five episodes in. That's a huge accomplishment. Couldn't have done it without you. Loyal listeners in all of your support so thank you so much. we've made it to twenty five episodes. The twenty five episodes of above the with ratio brought to you by espy nation and bleeding. Green nation is a great day to talk football. That is eagles football course in. I'm your host racial privee getting you very quick to what's happening. Today is friday. September seventeenth in. It's a victorious. Friday if i do say so myself but let's get right into what's going on with. The birds. jalen hurts led the eagles to a week one. Victory over the atlanta falcons. Thirty two to six and jalen hurts was looking like the guy. He was looking like the franchise. Qb he looked really good extremely comfortable. He was in control. He made good and smart decisions. He took advantage of what the defense gave him in. Made some really nice throws downfield but he also did a great job deciding when to use his legs. He completed twenty seven of thirty five passes for two hundred sixty four yards and three touchdowns no interceptions. Plus he had seven runs for sixty two yards. His timing was their accuracy was on target and he was in rhythm with his offensive weapons specifically rookie wide receiver. devante smith. The chemistry was clearly. There between hurts and smith smith scored a touchdown in his nfl. Debut and let the team and targets yards and receptions. Smith costs six of his eight targets for seventy one yards. Those six receptions tied the eagles rookie record for catches in an nfl. Debut with the sean jackson who also had six in two thousand eight there was also a point in the game when jalen hurts completing four back to back passes to devante smith so this is something that we should expect to see a lot more throughout the remainder of the season. Rookie running back kenny game. We'll also scored a touchdown in his. Nfl debut so expect to see kenny game. While and devante. Smith both rookies contributing a great deal in the offense this season. Also i wanted to mention that jalen rieger had a very encouraging start. He scored a touchdown as well and on the defense j. Von hargreave was a key contributor. He finished with two sacks both of which force turnovers on downs two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits and for his very first time as defensive coordinator. Jonathan gannon also did a nice job. Although the defense had a connor shaky start once they settled in. They didn't allow a touchdown in the entire game. Overall this was a really really good team win. But we have to give credit words de tim nick serianni. He did a great job. He did a fantastic job calling plays and being aggressive and the offense was able to execute so well done knicks. Air yanni if you're in search of a new eagles jersey. I would highly recommend considering a midnight. Green number one jalen hurts jersey. There was crazy hype. Surrounding jalen hurts following his week. One performance and it was actually reported on tuesday by. Espn's timid managed at midnight. Green number one hers jersey was second on fanatics bestselling nfl jerseys list with a five hundred percent increase in sales from saturday to sunday. That was the biggest spike for any player in the league. Just wow hurts was only behind. Patriots quarterback mack jones. Say you may want to hurry up and secure your jersey. Speaking of jalen hurts paraphernalia. Knicks serianni rocked. A jalen hurts t shirt during friday's practice during the press conference after practice. He was asked about the shirt that he was wearing in. He admitted that someone sent it to him and he liked it and he felt that it was a way to support the starting key. Nick suryadi also mentioned. They're wearing the guys. T shirts is something that he did throughout the training camp in. It's a great way to connect with the players and let them know that he believes in them now. The eagles put that win behind them as they're moving on closely approaching their week tubing against the forty niners also the eagles home opener. That's on sunday. September nineteenth at one o'clock pm. The forty niners are also wanna know after defeating the detroit lions in week wine. Forty one to thirty three a few things to be on the lookout for starting with the offense. The eagles are going to have to prepare for two different style. Quarterbacks in jimmy in trae lance trae lance had a touchdown on his first play so of course we have trae lance with like that speed option. The was can also expect to see a combination of elisha mitchell. In trae sermon in the backfield ally mitchell ran nineteen times for one hundred four yards and had a touchdown against the lions. So the you will definitely going to have their hands full with him in also wide receiver. Deebo samuel finished with nine catches for a career. high of one hundred eighty nine yards and a touchdown. So we're probably going to see that matchup with dairy sleigh. Let's see what he can do with that. George kitto was another heavy hitter. There we're going to have to trotto. Stop in on the defense nick. Boza is also a player to be on the lookout for but as far as angry. The forty niners weren't looking too good. They suffered two major injuries. This past week. Starting running back for he mostert. He's gonna miss about eight weeks because of a chip cartilage in his knee. That's going to require surgery. So he's landed on the injured reserve and also their starting quarterback jason barrett right knee also is injured in. He's gonna be out the season. Starting linebacker ray. Greenlaw is also expected to be placed on the i. r. and quarterback emanuel mostly would be starting if he was healthy but it appears like he's not gonna start because he's been rolled doubtful on the eagles side. Safety rodney mcleod has been ruled out because of a knee injury and also wide receiver. Marcus apps was ruled questionable. Because a concussion he suffered a concussion early in the eagles week one game and he participated fully in friday's practice after being limited on thursday. So he's on the right track to be cleared but that is going to be a rap on episode twenty five of above minez with brie. Shell don't forget to rate leave a ram review subtract car youtube channel.

Cowboys Kicker Misses Two Field Goals in Dramatic Loss to Buccaneers
"I i don't think there's any way of getting around at the tonight. A loser for the dallas cowboys. Is greg zero line. Let's let's your thoughts your thoughts on greg's Let's see here one second. This is a hectic night. Obviously greg line just amber says. I'm so mad right now on facebook. i'm with you. I get this. You know an anthony says not the same defense Tony says push off definitely a push off there at the end cowboys losing. Because the buccaneers drive. If somehow missed the game drive at the very kick a game winning field goal which just about no time remaining cowboys. defense can't stop them in the cowboys. Defense i will say kind of was a little bit of the same old defense. We didn't get you know a defense that was just allowing the bucks going on and on and on and on but this defense did get four turnovers tonight. But if we examine those turnovers. I think the only real authentic one was the demarcus lawrence forced fumble demarcus. Lawrence is definitely a winner tonight. I think demarcus lawrence was awesome. But the first interception the cowboys had the trayvon digs on was a tipped ball. Off of leonard fournette. Yes that counts. Yes that's true. Yes that count statistically but you know that's not necessarily your defense making a play on the ball cowboys also got an interception on. Tom brady at the end of the first half throwing a hail. Mary trying something before the half. That isn't really count. Although jordan lewis certainly had valiant effort trying to run that back and get some points You know the last turnover. The one that kind of turned the game around a little bit. That gave the cowboys. an opportunity. There at the very end Was just kinda. Chris godwin you know running into devante. Casey's helmet those things aren't necessarily You know something. You can replicate on a week by week basis and so for that reason. It's hard to give the cowboys credit. For all of those turnovers it was a different type of performance at the exact same defense we. I think we definitely saw some improvements. I think that mike parsons played moderately. Well i think that demarcus lawrence has mentioned played while randy gregory was on things But this was. I mean man. What a rough game for anthony
Fresh update on "devante" discussed on You Better You Bet
"I bet on it just a few minutes ago actually before jumping on the show another one that i just can't really put my finger on why it's as low as it is. Is it three seventeen and a half. And that's extraordinary for most quarterbacks allayed but those quarterbacks are not money mahomes and you know. I think it's going to go out there. This is going to be a game with a lot of shootout appeal gunfight at the o. k. Corral and patrick mahomes gonna be popping offer another probably three twenty five to three fifteen multiple touchdowns through the air. I am on the under on c. h. climate where it's allaire on the fifty and a half rush yards prop there. I was south of this number in week. One plug in a similar workload right around thirteen or fifteen carries on the ground. I think one of the strings of baltimore's give you defending the run for much of this season. So i think he's going to be bottled up between the tackles best suited for him to work outside the tackles in the past game And he's kind of an intriguing option. They are on the receptions and receiving yards prop and then elsewhere in this game. I think latavius murray goes back to back touchdowns guys i saw the touchdown prop open up plus two twenty five a couple of books. I compare that to tyson. Williams who has got or jews but you know horrible already come out and said greg roman reiterated a couple of days ago is going to be rotational backfield. Devante freeman toes. I'm not really you know very worried about him. It's going to be tyson and it's going to be a lot of latavius marina. I think murray's got a great shot against a leaky front of the kansas city cheese to punch one in yet again. A plus two twenty five on buying you better. you bet bet q. L. phenomenal football friday. Nick cost arkley. Chatting with brad evans sirius. Xm fantasy sports radio valley sports on twitter. At noisy wave owes brandon over..

Discussing Paddy Pimblett's Intriguing Potential Future Matchups
"I'm really intrigued about the patty pimple potential matches patty pinball versus grand dawson from our friend brennan nunez. We're going to start up with him. Grand dawson getting ready to fight. Diego fajita on october seconds So if he loses. Maybe do that. But i do not want to see patty pimlott in there with a guy. Like grant dawson right now. Just no no slow. Build grand is a very dangerous guy. maybe someday couple more wins. We see we can start talking about that but no we can't do that Rowntree versus ahlberg. Don't mind that aspen. Also till versus Riot hall and then brunson versus cannon here. I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of those. So if i see that again. i probably won't read it again.

NFL Wide Receiver Rankings 2021
"Football is right around the corner today. We're going through our consensus wide receiver. Reggie everybody likes wide receiver. Don't they wide receiver right gang. Judge go this is a big one guy. You can win your drafts with a lot of these wide. Receivers that we're about to talk about even if you drop them round one and round two and round three. Yes you certainly can. But we'll get to some. They can get much later. That are going to provide a lot of value in two thousand twenty one year. Yeah i can honestly say that. The one draft strategy to draft chinese. I've never taken a quarterback around one. And i have not taken a wide receiver in round one of any of my drought so far even super flex even supervise just getting. We just got some breaking news on sleeper that darryl henderson was injured in practice not return man would that be a huge injury to the rams funk season is funky town yeah davy jones. One of 'em jake fog or just a staffer. The woods cup higby season all adds to a man there on. Oh i hit. He's not gonna do me dirty two years in a row. That was a a when you're saying he is buy his jersey. If you finish for you. Oh i think i have to. That's too bad center role egg. I mean i. I don't own for that would be the economic shared the name first letter of the last name. I think it's a lot gusting at speaking injury. In preseason at all the things what are some preseason thoughts on wide receivers anything standing out or any injuries standing out anything. We should be on the lookout for as we get closer to the season. Starting all it's been kind of interesting like if you go to. Espn and just look. At the wide receivers. Half of them are listed as questionable. We're still a couple of weeks away from the season. So it's not overly alarming at this point but there are some injuries that are more alarming than others. That will get shortly. But let's start with our top wide. Receivers are we have devante adams tyreek hill stefan big calvin ridley the andrea hopkins and aj brown rounding out our top six. Which one of these guys do you wanna talk about. I think we could talk about devante. Adams tyreek hill. Just be as. I think i flip flop though is at least thirty times this off season gone back and forth between the two especially with rogers coming back. I don't wanna put davante adams at number one. You know contract year roger. They're going to go the big last dance. He's going to have all of the targets that he wants think he can get two hundred targets in a season. I don't but i think he's going to pace wide receivers when it comes to target. So i have devante adam just my number one. As well i think the touchdown potential. He is the favourite to lead the league in receiving touchdowns this year. Aaron rodgers coming back. That chemistry is as good as any quarterback wide receiver in the entire league. Yeah i had tyreek hill number one until aaron rodgers. I made it official that he was coming back and then davante adams shot right back up to number one. I have devante at number two tyreek at one. Like i said i flip flop all over but even as projections. I have devante adams at one hundred and sixty five targets. And i think that's conservative to be honest. I think it is still i. I got about one seventy five. Yeah i don't think he comes anywhere near two hundred I have team range. That one one sixty one seventy i. I also kind of a little bit worried. I think this offense could be worse than it was last year and cobb amari rounders are two factors that they did not have last year. That are legitimate receiving options. I do think that devante adam. I'm not gonna say this. I think he could actually Kind of disappoints fantasy owners this year. I'm not projecting it that way. But i see the path to it happening this year. Unlike in yourself.
Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021
"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.
Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 08
"Now to god. The i know that you are extremely enthusiastic about Terrence marshall going to the panthers. Twenty seven th pick of the second round just a few picks after escorts from lsu tears marshall to the panthers. What are your thoughts on this cal. I'll pick it a fantastic lang spot. you know. I think i was super high on marshall. Probably highest of just about anybody in the industry All all college season. And all you know predrag and my my enthusiasm is not where one bit. I love the landing spot where some people might be turned off on it You know I know that he is not maybe going to be immediately. Be the number. One with robby anderson and with dj more there. But i think he's going to have a clear role from day one because if you look at his body type and how profiles ios not just a big bodied receiver he also is a a burner to i mean he is true burner and You know high jump. High catch radius any any provides the wide receivers did not do as your which was give a teddy bridgewater. Now is going to be darnold. But they didn't have anybody to score in the red zone. You know everything. They they scored was from like you know deeper out or the the running backs the mike davis or you know. But they really didn't have anybody in the red zone that they could produce. So i think marshall steps in right away and could be. I bet he has a real legitimate chance at leading all rookies in in receiving touchdowns ex year. So you know it's somebody that i like. As far as a talent. I think he can easier to age. Well in that offense because He is going back with his former college coach. Now the head coach of the of the panthers. So i think that this guy drafted him whereas he might have fallen a little bit in. Nfl draft because there was a little bit uncertainty right before the draft about some of his medical history. I don't think coach takes them at high if he has any type about about the about his foot injury so i think that this is going to be the guy that's going to be all help you. Now you're gonna have some flashes. He's going to be probably inconsistent. Probably a lot like a like. I kind of value him a lot. Like the where i had claypool asher whereas i kind of knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for targets but i knew that there was gonna be a lot of upset especially if somebody gets hurt And i just think that there's gonna be a lotta touchdown and he's a big guy when people start really understanding how much of a freak athlete is. Don't be surprised if this guy is being compared as maybe even number one wide receiver in this class next year. That's that's how upside. i see you know. I do think chases a better prospect but you know they were on the same team and You know even on the team with jefferson and chase He marshall was extremely valuable piece of their natural shape team. I mean he. I think he had like fourteen touchdowns or something you know. And he had costa twenty yard per catch average on the team. I mean he he really is a tremendous player and then when those two guys left last year you know he played over about a. I don't know about six or seven seven games. you opted out. And he averaged one hundred and fifteen dollars. You're talking about more leading devante smith. It was really. I believe tears marshall who bleeding the country in yards per game you know before he opted out and he also was averaging close to two touchdowns a game you know and this same competition is all those. Stc guy so. I just liked body. I can't i hate to sound like a broken record. But i really do like big receivers. It's not the smaller wide. Receivers can't thrive in that bayer wide receivers don't bust. I just think that when you historically look at all the body types of players that are generally over six foot in there like over two hundred pounds to twenty six. I'd say two to twenty is about the average. You know we get the top hand wide receiver fantasy for fancy standpoint every year. That's probably about the average. So i like my guys. That profile big catch raises. So i just feel like they're more consistent with a when when you get that's capable of being a possession receiver getting first downs and touchdowns. I i like their consistency versus having a field stretcher. We might put up forty points in a game lake. You kyle i am. I am feeling good about carrots. Marshall and about what he's gonna do in his nfl career. The only hold back that. I have with taras marshall and again this could be viewed as a positive based on what i'm going to say in a second is so terrorist marshall hops into offense with dj more lobbying said in christian. Mccaffrey already there. So you're already looking at the possibility of being the fourth target there in carolina which i deal and add that to the fact that sam darnold who i think everyone considers at this point to be in the bottom. Half of the starting quarterbacks is throwing the ball to terrence. Marshall this is this is clearly not ideal so short term. There are some concerns. I do think like you that he's going to be great in the red zone. Short term era. You're gotta be thinking while sam. Donna already has connected to robinson clearly. The carolina organization views. Dj moore's or number receiver cj. Metcalf a christian mccaffrey a year a year ago. He broke the record for the most receptions for running back in a single season ever. She has to view him almost as a receiver. At this point with the matt of receptions which is insane that he's getting one hundred receptions i think it was a year or two ago so that that's not ideal but dynasty football dicey football so not necessarily great redraft person. In my opinion but dynasty football is about the long game and the long game. I see in the long game i see turns marshall absolutely thriving because we don't know a five we anderson's gonna be in carolina long-term. We don't know what the scenario is going to be with. Sam darnold or with christian mccaffrey. Dj more but we know the is one of the best receivers in this class in. He is talented enough will were at some point career. He will get an opportunity probably sooner rather than later if not this year to really showcase what he can do and he has the talent to be a number one receiver. I love his size. I loved as a big bodied receiver. That's a great fan a red zone. There are a lot of good things about terrence marshall and so what i was saying earlier is the fact that not going to be good in the short term is almost a positive here for you as a dynasty are because now we're seeing him fall to the third fourth fifth round pick of the second round which is lower than it should be gone if anything. This guy should be going at the back half of the first half so now because the term concern that comes with marshall. Now you're gonna be able to go up there and gets terrorist marshall and you're not gonna have to reach from either he's probably just gonna fall right in your laps and you're gonna walk is one of the biggest winners in your dynasty graphs. Because here's a guy that has a potential to be a top five receiver in this
Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 04
"Is thereby do like the fact that kyle amaury stole from the ball but now we are going to hop into a guy that went fifteen picks earlier in nfl draft. A guy that. I absolutely love allied larger more. He felt a second pick of the second round. And i am adjust fan. So i hope i'm not too biased here by do absolutely love elijah more because you look at the offense there. The new york has in place and the did geico davis and they do have them. Zal dumbbell mims there too and jamison crowder and you may think while there's a lot of receivers here but fact of the matter is the jets spent high draft capital. Two goping get larger more. If they're picking him with the thirty fourth pick of the nfl draft when they have all these other holes on the roster. We're talking edge quarterback you can make the case that they probably should have picked a player that was an edge or cornerback but they went ahead and they pick the larger more probably because they had a first round great on him and viewed him as one of the top receivers in this class. And if they didn't think that he could he could become a number one number two receiver. The offense and zack wilson. They probably wouldn't have bothered. They're in picking eligible more. So i think that you have all these. Ribisi were twos vibrancy. Threes in newark. Don't have a true alpha by receiver one in york and you saw gems on men's last year yes. He had injuries throughout the season. So we didn't really see enough from him but clearly the jets haven't don't believe him enough to be born receiver because they drafted elijah more. And when you're looking at college football last season devante. Smith had a great season but a lot of people are not talking about elijah more enough and i believe elijah moore had the second most receiving yards in college football last season in a shortened season. So this is a guy you can make the case for is a very very good receiver and it was. It was definitely disappointing for him. To see 'em fall out of the first round. But i absolutely love this landing spot with zach wilson in leiden. More both being rookies. I think the chemistry is going to develop an plus alleged. moore's blazing fast receiver. He can like a four three forty and this is the guy. That's an impressive rat runner to me to really has a little bit of it all. He may not be the biggest receiver the biggest taller receiver. But i think that he s potential to be a slot receiver a coup number for the jets in years to come so i am all about allied more this year and going forward i think there may even be better than rashad. Bateman and may be the third or fourth fest receiver in this class. Well i just wanna stay for the viewers. You know anybody. That's been listening to us. Knows that you're not just being a homer on him because you were higher than just about everybody in. The industry like the entire draft process before the draft. So i know it's not just because he landed at the jets because i would call you crazy. It was just for that reason. But you know i think you make interesting cases you know it you also knowing you. You're not a very high. You weren't high on the corey davis signing. I don't think that you're surely how on mims of abbas really really Into mems last year Going the draft process. I did not end up with him on any teams because his a draft dot com just started skyrocketing and he the point where i was taking pittman over them. Still then you. I wasn't getting him. On the turnaround you know because i also claypool and gibson ranked ahead of them but Like mims and i thought he was actually a really really interesting prospect. So at night we're willing to give on him after He's got that alphabet. I'm not willing to give up on him after a year. That a complete dumpster fire in new york last year. You know they have a completely new offense. I corey davis kinda showed that he could be the number one wide receiver. Antonio brown was hurt. Leisure you know most of those. Those guys actually kind of started splitting targets down the stretch about pretty pretty evenly. So i do. Think that Corey davis they paid him. I think they're going to at least attempt to get him. The number one spot and i do think mims profiles really well and the outside as well Us why they went out and got him with that pick. What corey davis and mims strengths are like down the field jump ball situations whereas i think Allies more profiles more is like underneath guy that can can really thrive if he gets volume. I just wonder how much volume is going to be there. If they're not running a dominant amount of sets of three watersheds. Because i do think that the other two receivers with their bodies and big catch races will Out snap him on the outside while it's interesting that you're high on Corey davis. And i know i've said before the not hot high in corey davis so i think that's another reason as to why i'm higher on a lighter more. I'm just not buying the fact. That corey davis succeeds in new york. Two years ago not last year but if we look back two years ago and a lot of people probably have wiped out from their mind. But i have not wiped that season from my mind because i was big. Encore dave's heading attest season and he completely let me down lake completely. Let me down. I'm not even sure. I'm thinking was probably healthy the entire season and i'm not even sure if he finished as top fifty receiver in the league and so fast forward a year and had a very successful year with the titans. I'm not knocking him. But here's a guy who was picked with the seventh or east kick in his draft and he was supposed to be the number one receiver for titans and we never really saw that work out for the titans. And i think they declined his fifth year option. So there's a reason why the titans aren't holding onto corey davis and i think unfortunately core gape is a receiver who can be great here and there like a devante parker. But he's not consistent enough. He's not a true number one receiver. You gotta in a way force in targets from the be successful. And i think the jets are just gonna realize the gecko that our number one receivers probably larger more in a number two receivers probably summons so. I'm not scared about corey. Davis getting targets. People were saying the same thing last season about shod paramount and how he was going to have a huge role in that new york offense and what happened in bre shot parent. Who by the way. I was extremely on extremely law. Shot payment last year. What happened to be shot. He did nothing for that offense. So i think just because the jets went after core gave us that doesn't mean that he's going to automatically demand targets. It's zach. wilson's offense now. I think zack. Wilson is going to gravitate Skies like elijah. More over corey davis and a jamison crowder dems. I think the alleged moore will end up being his normal receiver. And i think that the ceiling for more is very high to it. Might it might not happen with a larger more by think by the end of the season we're going to really realize how good of a player that allies are more is. Yeah so

"Okay. Let's move on to a guy that's being compared by now to rashad. Bateman in that is lonsdale more. He went to the arizona cardinals in the second round. And this is a guy that a lot of people are on dynasty as well. Collier thoughts on rhonda. More from purview. Run more than other guy data you know. I like the talent. I kind of wonder what his role is going to be in arizona that they do have the passing volume there to support him to become a fantasy viable wide receiver. If he's talented as he can't is athleticism has shown. I think he can produce a to be coming up a pretty valuable fancy option. I just. I'm not really in love with them. Taking them in the first round though. Because i'm not confident that he ends up becoming a very coveted player long-term. I'm just not sure that he that it's without getting the volume that Some of these other top receivers. You're going to get. I'm not sure that his death. The targets are going to be Extremely valuable and so. He's renita rely on a lot of catches now again with the air raid being spread system. There should be a lot of underneath stuff or that. It can complement deandre hopkins. So you later in their careers and you might see these. Two guy switching. But as coming out of college rancho moore's is very limited in what it skills that is He did almost everything. From elias scrimmage whether handoffs or getting short yard passes and running after the catch which is it's good for a lot of offense is like i said he could be a nice compliment out nice Robin but to deandre hopkins. But i i definitely cannot see a batman batman Combination there so. I think that the upside is. The ceiling is a little bit low for me for wanting to spend a first round pick. I think that What you can do with a lot of these guys is if there if you're kind of not sold on them at a back in first or early second round picks you know people covet. Those rookie picks quite often. And you can sometimes get undervalued veteran that you know is going to produce next year i agree with you on wanda and it's baffling to me that these two guys have with similar with shout bateman in baltimore the guy. We just talked about a similar. Adp in dynasty rookie draft right now average draft addition. They're probably going round. Pick eight pick or so but like you call. I think that rondo more is more of a second round. Pick because of the fact that hopkins is already there and i'm gonna touch on that a little bit more and say that long-term if let's say rhonda more sticks with the cardinals. Is he ever going to be a number one receiver in target for cal for calamari. Because as long as the andrea is there and he's demanding one hundred seventy targets. There's not a lot of room. That offense to morris thrive. So that's why i'm with you on route. One del more. I think he's a talented receiver but Even before the draft i was not as high on rhonda with a lot of receivers seeing this landing spot to me makes him in less desirable of a prospect for me. So i'm not on the vonda more train either. And this is probably a guy that i will avoid. I have no problem taking him in the second round. But based on where i've been singing going i think he's not gonna fall to a second round. And if there's a toss up between vonda more rashad bateman the board that i'm gonna pick shot bateman That's what i'm going to be doing every every time. Because i just like Bateman a lot. More than i do rhonda more at this point. Yeah i do i. She liked the landing spot. You know. being tied to collar long-term is a is a positive. I think as far as you know where people are going to proceed even if he does come out and flashes rookie year. People are gonna get really excited to you. Know that that's one thing that i think that You either one of these guys are tied up the young quarterbacks that can rush around and can hit a deep ball i just wondered what his development curves because the way he was using college and if he does maybe this guy could be a terrific type because he really is at that super athlete of prospect. We're

"We're going to hop right back into it and we're going to start with rishaad bateman from the baltimore ravens. He was picked with the twenty seventh overall. Pick in nfl draft. And there's been a lot of conversations about rashaad bateman as to where he compares to some of the other receivers in this class. I know in particular out of people have been comparing him to rondo more but is there a conversation to be made that he's better than other receivers qadir's tony that went before him. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this call. Would you have to say about rashaad bateman. Yeah as far as a baby. And he's a guy that i think. A lot of other people in the industry were were higher on that. I was going into the draft. One thing i do think kind of happen with his leaning spot is these kind of seemed to fall down in some bricky drafts that i've seen and he's kinda back to where the place that i kinda thought he should be all long You know if he falls any further than where he he's kind of going like i've seen him fall as far as like Seventeenth overall in in some superplex ethic. That's just a little bit of over reaction from the from the market you know It probably settle down. He'll probably move up a little bit more as addressees goes along closer to the season. But i think there's people need to be really careful because we saw with. Aj brown where he went to a a a lesson desirable situation a few years ago and people You know pushed him down too late. I you know second second round rookie drafts and turned out to be a pretty big mistake you know. You can't overreact. To situations. Lamar jackson still developing as a passer. And we really don't know whether the baltimore offense may open up or not you know the part of the reason why they might be writing so much inhabit says low volume and passing is because they really dependent on their own their defense and the running game but it also might be an issue because they didn't have the water receivers with the skill sets the to produce so bateman adds a very vital piece in my opinion that they did not have or last couple seasons in in a possession. Receiver know that moves change as well as a another red zone threat to help out with mark andrews because really their receivers have not been responsible for touchdowns last and Marquees brown where i think. He's a good. football player. Is for a stretching the field when he's healthy i. I'm not sure that he's the type of guy that you really want to depend on in dynasty especially in ppo release because he's not going to have a high volume with the with the average depth of targets that he gets. I'd argue that this landing spot for bateman is fantastic landing spot for a rashad baby because you have an offense here with mark. He's brown and like you said. Mark brown is used primarily as deep that this is not a guy that's gonna be demanding by receiver one targets. I think he's gonna be demanding some targets. But he's the guy that's a good deep threat and he's going to have big games here and there but the baltimore. Ravens are lacking a number one receiver. And they haven't had a number one receiver for quite some years. And i can't remember quite frankly the last time they had a number one receiver and resod bateman guy to me that could hop right in there in become a true number one receiver for the baltimore. Ravens this is a great possessing catch. This is a guy that is just an all great receiver. He's going to be a great match with lamar jackson. And he's probably gonna get some solid targets away out of the gate and so i was. I'm pretty how. I was pretty high on them. Before the draft started. I had him publicly about my fourth or fifth best receiver and landing spot to me. Doesn't change anything for rashad bateman. I still think he's worthy of a late. I ask pick in dynasty rookie drafts. You could depends. Maybe even a little bit higher. But i think overall basements a great receiver and i would even argue because i know a lot of people are considering bateman to be the top of the second tier for receivers. But i would argue that. Maybe he should be considered with the first tier receivers as well because if considering jalen waddell to be in that first year a battisti receivers this year now. People are than i have to make the case. The bateman is right up there with jalen waddell because you look at geelong competition and wolf Devante parker for targets. And then you look at batman's competition for targets as well and you have like brown and the opportunity is actually better for the women's and i'd have to argue that. Lamar jackson is a better quarterback than a tiger. Ryo as well and yes. I know that they've been known for the running game in the past. But i think that's naturally because they haven't had an alpha dog receiver like rishaad based in also rashaad. Bateman is a guy that is going to be able to handle a lot more targets than jalen watteau. I don't see as high as many targets in receptions for jalen models i actually think that rashad bateman of very good receiver and he's someone worth considering in your dynasty rookie draft him would be a great value. Fell to like the back half of the first round in your dynasty rookie draft okay. Let's move on

"That you won the deal and then the next year you get jalen brown in the lotteries and he becomes all nba performer. At that point. The boston celtics had their chance to cast their chips in the middle of the table. Go get an mba performer. They gambled on kyrie irving and they lost. You remember where curry said he was going to stay with the team. Well he left and every since he left. Now you're trying to rip place isaiah. Thomas is productivity from a few years ago so then you got it with kyrie. At all of a sudden you trae for kimball walker and when you trae form he was all mba but this year we dealt with some injuries and he wasn't an all star. Now you reach and now going out the forty eight. You're trying to go after big in the draft. They continue to strike out on big in the draft. Also the celtics have in fortify their position at the five spot. So now you have tatum. You have brown all mba performance. You have some pieces is smart kemba walker before. Tina made the conference finals. Three i guess the last four or five years and now you watch the nets ascend you watch be becoming. Mvp candidate you. Watch the bucks giannis. We're back to back. Mvp's and then the raptors go on and win the championship and then he get jimmy butler and they win the east and now all of a sudden you and the player i think the fall guy will be no one. Danny age will be back. Brad stevens we were also arguing. Was he wanted a best coaches in the nba. Remember that now. We can argue was. He wanted a top coaches in the east. When you get a chance to think about the top coaches in the eastern conference. I love brera indiana ties but he deserves the level of criticism that most players most coaches deserve when you have to all stars on the t. See we appreciate and the knicks this year and the hawks this year because they're playing hard every night and you know what else because they're better than teams like the celtics who had two all stars this year Huge disappointment let me get one quick. Thought from you here. I just have a minute. But on russell westbrook he breaks the record for three pointers. he is now. We've used the word polarizing lot today. People.

"Of these matters we bring in the star of nba. Can't down the star of jalen and jacoby and just the most interesting renaissance man in the world the one in l. jalen rose and so j. No one will go with me on my idea. That steph curry should be the mvp because of all the things that he's bringing to this season so let me just put it to you this way. Is he the best show in the sport. Is he the best thing. The nba has going for it this year. He is and it's not just this year greenie. The golden state warriors started winning championships. And when you start talking about being a show that means that you're able to attract multiple audiences. How do you do that being a baby faced assassin and four steph curry for public consumption. We get a chance to see him. Be a son a husband a father a brother debt. He's likable and also he's a smaller guy. He doesn't play with a frown on his face. Like a russell westbrook. She's not flex into the cameras in mean mugging he has an infectious smile. And you know what else he has. Unlimited range it. What does everybody do when i walk into a basketball gym. They don't get into deepest stance. They shoot the ball and then they shoot it from as far as they can is steph curry. The first person that we've seen that gets shoot it off. The dribble between the legs. Crossover behind the back with accuracy and also steph. Curry is a volume score. Looking at the kind of numbers put up half forties and twenty minutes.

"Devante Smith, a Heisman Trophy winner, not Jay Harris, who's a wonderful running back off all the other of all the other great weapons that they have in Alabama. This actually makes sense. I agree with you or what you say about Justin Fields. Oi! If I put Justin Fields next to Matt Jones didn't say anything. If I just put those two next to each other and said, which one would you take us a quarterback right now. I think nine out of 10 people would take Justin Fields. The other one's probably lying in themselves. As far as elevating a team. What could Justin Fields do with Alabama? Cause I know Ohio State they were in the national championship game. It's not like Ohio State's a bunch of garbage. I also watched tough Borland, who is still trying to chase down Devante Smith. Can't say it was smoke and mirrors. They went up there and they beat the brakes off Clemson. But when you look at Ohio State compared Alabama, they're way more holes with Ohio State than there ever would be without Alabama team in 2020 way more And so I don't want to use those reasons to attack Justin Fields when I don't think the truth. 55 to 1 to four.

I never got to experience that I think that s so what I'm so but what I'm told is you go into a movie theater, and they haven't on close circuit is that correct? Pretty much like WrestleMania. One. My dad took me down to a Cleveland public auditorium WrestleMania to we watched that front row theater maybe lights here in Ohio. Yes. Yeah, that was before And then obviously WrestleMania three started. You know that the paper of you but They were. The match was WrestleMania one if you've read on it Where Paul Lorne Dorf and Roddy Piper wrestled Hulk Hogan and Mr T and Mohammed Ali was a referee. In the middle that match. Muhammed Ali got a little too involved and he started throwing punches and Paul longer told somebody to get Muhammed Ali out of the ring because he was about to knock him out. True story. Well, well, I've always heard cause I listen all the podcast from all the old guys and I shouldn't say old guys because a couple of were still involved arrested by elicit all the classic podcast of things where they say how big of a fan how big of a wrestling fan Muhammed Ali was. I think Arne Andersson has some pictures with he and Mohammed Ali, and that Could say this. Not that he had to be smartened up a couple of times because it was there was a couple times he took it for serious there, so I don't just be I don't dispute anything. You're saying, Ben, I I feel differently about it now. And Ben thank you very much for the coal in the memories. I feel different about it. Now. It is when you think about the way it used to be.

"devante" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"Goldhammer. She is Courtney Cronin. Arkansas hangs on Devante Davis hit a jumper from the far side to give them a 70 to 70 lead Courtney with three seconds to go. And as we were saying three seconds is a lot different than one second in college basketball. You can get the ball up the court and make a pass in three seconds. I got to say that Orel Roberts got about as good a look from their best player, the leading scorer in the country, as you could possibly get to try to win it. I like the play design, and I think that you have to respect the fact that they were going for the win there. I've been. I've been watching this replay of the final play a couple times. Now in just where Max Ace Ms gets to, you know, the three point line. There's about 0.9 on the clock. I mean, if you could play the hindsight game all you want, Um, you know if he takes another step inside, and he's able T hit a mid range jumper, and they tie the game at 70 to 70 two's games going over time. This is March. Crazy things happen. And they were that close to the buzzer beater that you predicted. I mean, this is still honestly like this. This was the best game of the tournament so far in you know, people still talk about The way that Ohio State lost early on to this Orel Roberts team. You know, they lost, though, before the final minute before the final play of the game, You know, they had a couple three point attempts there at the end, but or Roberts pretty firmly at that point, we knew they were gonna win. I mean, this one came down to the final play, and that was exciting in a Smith. Um, you know, he had such a clean look at that basket. You're not going to get a better look for that. But I mean, I think going for the win and just kind of the way that they grinded throughout this tournament, really? You got to give a lot of respect to Arkansas to because they battled Is the team that in multiple games Has trailed throughout this tournament in the way that they came back against this Orel Roberts team to now advance to the elite eight is is great storyline, according it's got to be the greatest moment in Orel Roberts school sporting history, right? Um And you know, to make it to the sweet 16 is a 15. It only happened once before in the history of the tournament with Florida Gulf Coast a couple of years ago. Um but I was Ah, I like the fact that they took the three Okay, Because I just You know when you're a 15 seed You know, playing another five minutes against the school from the SEC. I would rather take my chances with my best player, probably the best basketball player in the history of my school. Having a clean look at one shot to win it, and it missed by inches and then you saw the emotion of March and I'm sure this will be all encapsulated in one shining moment on April 5th after the game. But Max Ames, miss was crying and his whole team came around him and hugged him and supported him. But you know, somehow with sports, you remember the way it ends so much more than you remember the ride. Orel Roberts has a lot to be proud of. But you could tell that Abe Smith was just crushed by the fact that he had that look and he was not Able to put the ball in the basket. He had the moment we all it practiced in our driveways, a good jillion times and his shot just missed that much. And I can't imagine how that feels. Yeah, And I think that the good thing is that it's teams like or Roberts that show us that you can still dream and dream big. Um, and that the dream doesn't necessarily That mean anything Just because they're not advancing to the elite eight. They got further than most people, You know, I remember that first day they were about what 95 million brackets busted off of that Ohio State. Orel Roberts came alone. Um they got further than anybody thought that they would. And the fact is Max Ace Mus. Sophomore, you know, Should this should this tournament have increased his draft stock after leading the country and scoring this year? Absolutely. Does he return next year? I don't know, but I mean, he has been a story of March and it's fun finding these guys. That, you know become that you know that you can improve your future and where you get drafted in the NBA by having a good couple weeks in your conference tournament, carrying that over into the month of March. That's impressive. And I think that certainly helped him a lot. And you know, just because he didn't make that last basket there. Yes, that is the moment that he's gonna be that's gonna grind on him for years to come. Um That's you know, Gordon Hayward had that moment We were talking about Butler and their magical run a couple of the most famous miss shot in basketball history, probably right. Absolutely. I mean, and he had that moment. This will be Max Spaceman is kind of on that same Um, you know that same pedestal so It was a great run, though. For this or Robert team, you know, it's cool to see a 15 seed in the tournament. This making it this far. And no. You know this Arkansas team get behind Eric Musselman because that's an awesome story to mean. Look what he did. In all those years with Nevada and now what? Three seasons in at Arkansas. He's got them into the elite eight. That's pretty amazing. Yeah, I get a guy with obviously with muscleman with an MBA name and with N ba pedigree. I wonder what a a business does you know that there's some numbers like comparing him to Steph Curry that he did things for a mid major scoring in this tournament that have not been done, said Steph. And I remember people saying, Oh, use this, You know, little kid from this mid major school or his dad was an NBA player. I don't think anybody could have forced on that Steph Curry would become the greatest shooter of all time. And I think the way um players respond in the NC double a tournament is, you know, should factor in a lot. When it comes to their draft stock. So we've seen what Courtney and I both described as the greatest game of the tournament. I don't record it doesn't qualify as a buzzer beater or not. I predicted buzzer beaters there shot with three seconds to go. But I think a buzzer beater has to be like if Abe Smith shot went in that with the buzzer beater, right? Yeah, Anyway, up next we talked to Davante Davis, Arkansas's hero. This is Game night on ESPN Radio, the ESPN app. We're back on Monday, and I'll.
Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.

"When i look at the rams i trust everything about the rams except the guy is going to have the ball in his hands. More time than anybody else. That jerry golf. He's a turnover. He's an accident waiting to happen and he's playing with a fractured thumb and the cold weather. And so i believe the packers defense although the not great i believe they can a few turtles out of him. Be a fumble or interceptions. Now aaron donald aaron says he feels great. Aaron donald play with a torn cartilage. Not me i had. That injury are in my ribs door to rip cartilage. Yup i tore my my real ended up when came loose my real extra protrudes a little bit now because there's not intact because the cartilage was torn. It was painful now.

I mean just that third to feel that you don't realize how much you use your core until injure and then you realize the simple things brush not putting on your clothes brushing your hair.

So he's going to be very interesting. He might hip. Injury might not be as severe as my he might be able to tolerate more pain the not cooler. But that's not a very pleasant injury to play with in given that and everybody looking for the matchup everybody everybody would talk about. You know what they already talked about.

He's gonna have to come out on the side of with jason's zone and everybody wants to see that matchup.
Alabama vs. Ohio State: Best of college football's national championship game
"Last night, Alabama wrapped up the college football season beating Ohio State the national championship game 52 to 24 behind one of the transcendent performances we've ever seen. In the national championship game from wide receiver Devante Smith, the Heisman Trophy winner had 12 catches 215 yards and three touchdowns. Nick Saban becomes the first to win national titles in three different decades, seven titles overall for saving in his coaching career, six in the last 12 years alone. According to reports with Alabama looking for an offensive coordinator or Steve Starkey Z and moving on to Texas. There's talk that Bill O'Brien will be Alabama's Next. Oh,
"devante" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"They go out and get the number one dual threat prospect in the country and Bryce Young and still, Mack Jones has, you know, he just kind of buckles up and says, Okay, I got it earned this job. S so you're right. It's a totally different mindset today that and it's so much harder today for coaches have to manage their rosters based on how willing and easy it is for kids now to transfer simply because they're not getting the playing time they expected early should the Heisman Trophy come down to the winner of Alabama, Florida? I think so. And you know, I still give the edge right now to Mack Jones. And it really for me, goes beyond just being tendon. Oh, and being the number one ranked team in the country, and obviously, Max put up Fantastic numbers, But then I really think if you've watched the games if you block if you watch Mack Jones play week in week out, he's just playing the position at a different level. It's not just accurate season, avoiding a avoiding interceptions. It's moving around the pocket. It says anticipation on throws. He's getting hit right in the chest. He's got guys in his lap, and it's not affecting his efficiency. I'm not saying that Jones is the NFL. Prospect that Trevor Laurence is by by no stretch, but I think you could make the argument that Jones is played better this year, and he's played more consistently. Certainly on a weekend week out basis. Kyle Trask is completely shouldered, not just the Florida Gator offense, but that entire team and for them to pull the upset against Florida. He's gonna He's gonna have to have another a plus type performance, but I think those two guys have sort of separated themselves for the rest of the pack is Jesse Palmer, ESPN college football analyst. But Mack Jones could be the Heisman Trophy winner. He's not the best player in his own team. Yeah. You could make the argument. Devante Smith. Yes, you could make. Yeah. I mean, there's a bunch of guys on defense that her good student Yeah, left tackle and leather. With its really good Nagy. Harris is leading the nation in rushing yards. That's that's the reality at It's the reality of Alabama. You probably could have said the same thing for Danny Werfel when he won the Heisman Trophy. It's Florida, and you probably could say the same thing. Maybe from that liner when he won the Heisman Trophy, USC Gino Children Yeah, thank you Can't door she was up for the Heisman Trophy as well. Like it is strange where Mack Jones might win it. But Devante Smith to me is the best player on that team. And Devante. Smith might not be the best receiver on that. Jalen Waddle. Maybe. Do you think he's better? Do you think he's better with me? He only played for gay and it seemed like he was catching a bubble screen and taking it 92,000 every day and the scary part of Obama's they might get him back in the plant. I don't know, like it would be funny to walk in that locker room and really bring a bunch of scouts and say, Okay, just just Look at this clutter and tell me who you think the best is because it Z that little lot of ways probably explains why they're the number one, Mack Jones told me said the hardest throw is when the receivers wide open So it's a former quarterback, too, and save it agreed. He said. Yes and saving, I think played one year of the position when he went to college, but Is that the hard throat Wide open done. Yeah, it's harder for Matt because I feel like it happens a lot Stark using Steve Sarkeesian, I mean, as an offensive coordinator, loves dialing up double moves and I don't think there's another receiving group in the country gets good at running them. Devante Smith catches at least one double Move TD a week, Jalen Model was doing it for John Matchy, the Canadian from Brampton, Ontario. Outside he's catching a post for a for a touchdown every week. So so Mack Jones has to deal with it more than a lot of other people, but as a quarterback when you're back there No, You're trying to play fast, and you're trying to get your read and take your steps and looked downfield, decipher, decipher the coverage and try to really quickly get a read on where your receiver is and where his body position is in relation to the closest defender to him. You look down there. You see that He's got him beat by 45 yards. And you tighten up. You think I got it? I got to make this perfect. And that's often times when it's tight coverage. That's when as a quarterback, you could really just let it rip, you know, throw a fastball without overthinking it, and so No For Matt Jones made maybe that makes this season even more impressive. He's made a lot of very tough, wide open throws this year. It's amazing. I left handicapped. What's going to happen this weekend? I'll give you just some of my thoughts or some of the information that I've gathered here. Notre Dame. What if Notre Dame would lose the way Alabama beat Texas A and M. Maybe I'm told by a source with the committee that they could they could lose their way out of the final four. If Clemson would lose a close game, they probably would still have a hard time staying in. But I don't believe that because they love those shiny objects they wanna have Trevor Laurence in there. And Florida and Florida beats Alabama Alabama We know is still staying in Cannes, Florida get in. So wherever you want to go with that, whatever topic you want to dive into, if you have, you know something To the contrary. So I would say Bam is a lot to be in. I think. With Florida losing jealous you last week in North Carolina, smashing Miami. I now think Notre Dame's and I kind of thought like you last week. I thought, well, if Notre Dame goes out to get blown out by Clemson, there's a possibility that they could get left out. You gotta remember in 2017 Georgia got beat by offering my thing was 23 points. They still got in his one last team I think with with Notre Dame's resume, UNC is a team that committee really likes. They certainly look great against Miami last week, and they've beaten Clemson already. I think you could take a one loss, Notre Dame resume and put it up against the six in Ohio State. Um or or even eight in one Texas, saying them who's best wind would be the Gators. Who, by the way after this weekend might be a three last team, Clemson if they lose the Notre Dame Clemson game to me is really the kind of the interesting story in this because If Notre Dame wins Clemson loses, you gotta to lost Clemson that's lost twice to the number two team in the country. What does that look like against, say, an 18 1, Texas A and M Clemson's resume If they lose wouldn't necessarily be great. Not just being a two lost team and we never sent to last team get in their best win is 18 Miami. There's only two teams on Clemson's schedule Pittsburgh and Boston College who currently have winning records outside of Miami, so it's not as strong as you potentially like..

"And then he has a screen at one hundred percent, so those are those are some of the routes that devante Parker surely thrived at, but again I think that when you look at him when he was drafted, you know. The dolphins expected him to be the dominant force. Force on the outside, and we see what Matt said with those you know he's only got what two two yards separation I look at that Stefan Gilmore game where he pretty much turn him inside out and put him into a washing machine. I mean Stefan. Gilmore is running down the field and Devante. Parker route right back in the ball, and then bullied his way through Stefan, Gilmore, I think. You know what we saw. The beginning of the season from the dolphins offense as a whole was the Kinda sputtered, and it took them time to truly develop, and you look at the way. He took all news last few games. You, you mentioned Philadelphia. He dominant foresee took that game over, and that's what you expect from Devante Parker again to me. The biggest thing is can he do it and be consistent but But from what I saw last year Devante Parker you sit here and you look at the NFL and you can see here name off. The Michael is the Andre Hopkins you know all these elite wide receivers I don't think. devante Parker is in that same class right now and some dolphin fans do I. Mean You saw on twitter? People were saying it's better than Michael. Thomas No way in Hell is Devante Parker? Thomas after one season, but does he have the potential? If he goes out there and strings to three seasons together continues to develop on what he already shown. Maybe so so for me, I think like we said we will touch on the entire wide receiver corpse. Being a strength is going to come down to. devante Parker Devante, Puerto Down compressed and Wayne step into that role. He is similar, you know. Know He, he is a similar style of play. He can go up there and make those same Khan you know those one in one on one coverage. Go up there sky up. There highpoint the football make those plays, but is he that dominant force like devante Parker I? Don't know that he is after that half a season. We saw so for me the entire twenty twenty season offensively that. That passing game is going to come down to whether or not devante Parker can replicate that in some people have already anointed him as the savior as this number one wide receiver that has completely you know transform the way this receiving corporate I. Don't think it has become that and I. Don't think that we can sit here and assume that that's going to be the Devante Parker that we see. See, what we saw last season because we have plenty of a tape, and and the years have gone by that. We know that devante Parker was just so so you know he didn't eat right. He went out there and he was getting hurt on the simple plays I think it was. It was two three years ago. I remember turn. He didn't turn field to get the first Downey. He ran. He ran horizontally and he ended up to hurt himself, and he was out for a couple of games. I mean we have to see consistently from devante Parker but does he have the skill set to be that elite dominant wide receiver absolutely. I have one more. Parker said that that's GONNA. Really help us segue depressed and Williams I. If there's anything else you've got i. mean now's the time. To Nail on the head I will say. That this, about devante Parker, his second half of the season, dramatically different than in the first half of the season. When you look at weeks, let's just take weeks. One through eight right? I know that by week was sprinkled in there or you look at his. Greed you know weeks one through eight and you put it all together and average out you are getting. That was one two three four five games and. Angry of low twenty two point eight eight when you then take weeks nine through weeks ten right and you combine all that together. And you all that data that through action stats and the heartland, white stuff, no judgments as a no judgment zone here at PF N. like planet, fitness, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. We do not get paid by planet fitness. By the way his grade jumped up six points at twenty eight point eight zero, which is much more respectable. And then you can see kind of his rankings like in week eleven. He was wide receiver ten. In terms of always salmon we twelve, he was wide receiver, twenty five out of like ninety ish and we thirteen, he was thirty five. You know, and then he kind of fell into a little plateau there that seventy finish wide receiver twenty five. His overall rank was wide receiver eighty, four, mainly, due to that really bad first half of the season he was wide receiver sixty three in week, one, hundred, six two, but you could see the improvement, so you look at that and you hope. That? He can continue to do that, but I'm very very cautious with it because of the fact that he has never in his career, really shown true separation from defender, and we don't know what to was playing style is going to be like in the NFL. We know what it was like college, but we don't know how that's going to translate to the NFL. We know that he likes to hit. Those quick hits slants and quick kit targets. devante is not made for that. Guy which we talked about the. Go Up and get it. Kinda Guy and win at the point. So it's going to be very interesting to see how he transitions along what you mean as dolphins fans, we'll have to hope that he does make that successful transition. And you know. You set up a Segue segue because you know I think the biggest reason why Parker might not have the repeat performance. I don't really think it has anything to do with the skill set. Maybe the team around him not only the the two factor, but. US One of the best word CEVERS NFL NFL from week nine on in twenty, thousand nineteen, his rankings among wide receivers in that time. I in yards, tied for first and touchdowns,.
"devante" Discussed on The Phinsider
"Moving back to what the dolphins are doing last year. On average they spent. You know thirty three minutes per game. Trailing fifth worse in the League Their time of possession per game was twenty eight minutes, and you have to think, too. You know a big thing that you throw. The ball goes incomplete. The clock stops and when you're running the ball. That clock keeps moving your time. Possession goes up and these introduce important when you're really put into perspective. What these receivers do and this is going to be a lot about devante parker when you think about these things. something. I'M GONNA use a lot. Is something called a yellow ball? And you only live once so it's just kind of hooking it up there and really just going with the flow right basically playing for behind with less time equals. You throw the ball lap Ryan Fitzpatrick completed. Fifteen passes on third down last season with at least ten yards to gain I see that as a yellow ball. I mean if you guys if you guys have. That you hey, you're jake. You're told the out in right field this. Bet Slap me over the head or something, but when you're in third and the ten I think you're gonNA. Be a little more risky. You're more likely to Kinda just hook it up right. You're kind of going to take those chances downfield and what we're going to talk about. Here is how devante Parker really really benefited from those balls I mean. He was fourteenth in the League in targets, tied for twentieth in receptions, but then you go to receiving yards, one, thousand, two, hundred, and two is four receiving touchdowns nine tied for three tied third. Excuse me and only five jobs in the sense. He benefited from the yellow balls, four hundred receiving yards, uncontested catches according to PF. Now when you look at an offense at Madel, start with you. Say you know it's. Third and five compared to third and ten. You're not just hooking it downfield. Hoping your receiver can make a play. There's probably a play in your system where you're trying to get someone open for seventy eight yards. You trying to look for those five yards compared to just you know going for the fifteen twenty. Because you know worst case you it. Is that kind of fair? I mean I. Guess, but you also have to look at Ryan Fitzpatrick style right? He has always been the guy purser. Kinda just gives his wide receivers a chance to make a play on his tight end, and when you have a guy like devante Parker. When you look at it, demonte poker's route tree throughout the twenty nine hundred season, a lot of them were were or go routes right, and a few of them are slants. There were there was not a whole lot of refined route running with in all of his roots that he was running. The problem is this with Devante, Parker. Now called the offense of share metric. He received in two thousand nineteen and grade of Twenty eight point, zero three, which ranked eighty fourth out of ninety three qualifying wide receivers now. Oh sm kind of talks about the the individuals. Production. In an offense, so it's not you know it doesn't mean that Parker was one of the NFL's worst wide receivers his grade. Just indicates that he was highly inefficient producing. Impressive numbers right so he caught only fifty six point three percent of his passes. This was only better than nineteen other wide receivers to put how poor that ring is into perspective. Remember that ninety three other wide receivers in total qualified for a grade, so parks catch percentage was well below the medium, and then there was a massive difference between Parker and a guy. We all know who he got to beef with with Michael Thomas on twitter. who had the highest percentage at that position? So Thomas on one hand he caught eighty point five percent percent eighty point five four percent of his targets. Compare that to devante Parker Fifty six point three, but my point is this. Parker has failed. Consistently throw his career to create separation from the fenders, which is why there may be so many jump balls when it comes to Devante Parker so at the time that his quarterbacks passes reached him, whoever was in the under center last whether it was fitzpatrick arose in the nearest defender to devante Parker was an average of one yards away. This was tied for the third lowest distance in the NFL. Simply put. devante Parker did a terrible job getting. Which is obviously something very important wide receiver success? So you can look at that you could say fitzpatrick. Is One of those Yolo guys right? Who just throws the ball up and let his play, but you could also in the same breath look devante Parker. Inability to create separation from defenders. and which is could be a very telling reason why the balls that come his way, our jump balls. So sorry that was so long winded. Oh! No. That's the key here because I mean when when you think about these players what they're gonNa try to do, and this isn't just a conversation. The dolphins I mean if you're fantasy, you know player or something like that. These are things you want to kind of keep in mind in the back of your head, because those are the little X.. You know that kind of put you in a different perspective compared to seeing you know the nine receiving touchdowns and man I I think that's interesting because. I think. I don't know if I completely agree with that. I will say I. Don't expect Parker to do this this exact thing again for a combination of reasons including time of possession, but I mean he had the most catches downfield twenty yards down the field without dropping a pass, so let's let's. Say You! Albert Wilson. Can't you know One v? One really beat someone for a jump ball and that's kind of his. Struggle does it make him you a poor wide receiver subpar concern. No, because you know, he beats people in other ways. However, the thing that blew me away is just consistency. The four hundred yards contested catches for him and Tied, for first with the drop passes on twenty yards downfield. It makes you wonder. Is the separation really the end? All be all for someone like him when he isn't dropping balls when he is. You know catching these I don't I. Don't expect him to catch everything downfield of twenty yards or more anymore. I mean I really don't expect that to happen. I did see there was some where he'd go for a jump ball and the ways defender went you went for. For the ball, a Dingo for him, he could walk right into the end zone for a touchdown. I remember, that's how he really got going in the eagles game where he really took over and prude where I think he could be clear number one receiver, but but Josh what? What's the sense here of? I mean I think consistency is what we're really looking for in Parker and I don't think the way he was used in two thousand nineteen, especially with this Downfield assault he really thrived is the way for him to get those numbers back to where they were season. Yeah I agree with a little bit of both what you guys are saying, I do think this is something. Where in order for the dolphins, wide receiver core to truly be what we expect it to be. devante Parker has to go out there and do something he has yet to do, and that is you know put pile these game the seasons back to back out there and prove that he can be that number one wide receiver and And when you say number one wide receiver, people think okay. That's where he is on the depth chart to me. That means that he is dominant force that you turn to when plays breakdown, or when you see that single coverage like you said he's talked about the yellow balls, and that made a great point you know Ryan Fitzpatrick's career has been based off these yellow balls, but if you see Devante Parker, one on one in coverage with. Any cornerback in the NFL. You're going to give him a chance to go up there and get that. He's six foot, three, two hundred plus pounds. I mean I'm looking at Matt Harmon of fantasy footballers reception by perception chart, and he has the success rate for Devante Parker Oh nine routes the streak, sixty three point, eight percent, and that is. That is, it's green. You know that's a well above. The average has the flat at eighty percent. So you know an out route..
"devante" Discussed on The Phinsider
"Nfl asked a question which is tougher. A make a catch while guarded by Stefan Gilmore. A pass while being by Michael Thomas and all devante Parker said was a and you kind of know why he. He's faced up. St Stefan Gilmore twice over the last five seasons. He had a monster game against him last year. Obviously that's the only thing that he can truly talk. Speak on because it's the thing he does. And that triggered Michael Thomas as we know we see some of those other. You know bouts. He gets some of these other players. I Michael Thomas responded with for you yes go run some numbers up. Then you can talk. I laughed you. You've been in the league longer than me first round or any posted some emojis Responded with got some hard feelings their brother let me get target three hundred times a game and that again Michael Thomas who said in other words you week. They don't even put your name in the same sense as me remember that. And then he continued. He threw it out there. You still not going to do nothing. It took six years and seventeen weeks to have a good game. Get The out here. Blame your parents not know quarterback? All devante Parker said was quit crying. We will post this back and forth as we did on the inside of the other day but my first initial thoughts are man. We need football back in our life like. That's the tough thing here because you know Parker. Us maybe hey. He had a great game against the Fine Gilmore. He should be happy about that defensive player of the year. And you know. That wasn't even his best game of the season. I still think eagles game was really his coming out. Party at really showed what he can be at his best. And you know I'm not GonNa Defend Michael Thomas here but I think you don't become a top wide receiver in the Lee. I gotTA say Michael Thomas. The best rivals even NFL. I don't care how much he's targeted he. I you know. It's up for debate. But for me he's the best an order to become one of those best players. League. You don't you have this fiery attitude where you kind of are always you know think maybe people are out to get you. But trying to doubt you forget the haters. You know that type of mentality is how you really build that work of becoming one of the best players in the world. I'm in Tonio Brown before all that stuff happened. I mean he was the same way that everyone was kind of against it. So it's kind of a weird situation though where where you can't really you. WanNa defend Devante Parker but what I saw twitter. Doing what else kind of happy about is they were saying. Well of course and I think you're right there. Of course. Michael Thomas has had the better career but I mean Parker. Did nothing wrong with this. And for Thomas to Kinda come out and start ranting I mean it just. We need football back. You're one hundred percent ready yet and I think. The biggest thing here's consistency. If devante Parker throughout his first five seasons you know put up the same numbers they did last year. Then we have a conversation. I mean Michael Thomas like you said I think the Andre Hopkins is right up there with him. You proctor who Jones. There's some guys up there that I wouldn't even put Devante Parker in the same sentence with but again he ha. It's because he hasn't shown consistency. You're right that eagles game. He took that game over. You know there was a jets game. He took the game's over that game. Against Stefan Gilmore. He took that game. I mean that is what you want from wide receiver one from that those elite talent. And that's what we saw glimpses of last season so I think devante bars goes Michael. Thomas Absolutely not. I think some people twitter I think they truly believe that and I don't know that's a little crazy to me but it was nice to see dolphins twitter kind of come together and you know kind of call. Michael Thomas Out. Because he was being a little bit of a bully and it was for really no reason an devante parker just kind of laughed it off and I just can't believe it all stemmed from the word A. It's it's one of those things that you you have to talk about. Because I think all the national media outlets were discussing had dion sanders or Steve. Steve Smith on. Nfl Network talking about last night. We definitely football back. But it's going to be interesting to see how much this drives these players. I mean Michael Thomas Again. I think he says you know. Keep keep underrating me. It's like no one's underrating you. They already think you're the best wide receiver. Nfl Devante. Parker now is going to go out there and try to exceed expectations that we already had so. I think is a win win situation for the Miami Dolphins? I know a lot of people were you know why why's devante getting spewed like that. I mean all he did was say because he knows what. Stefan Gilmore is. He absolutely bullied the defensive player of the year. So there's no reason why devante Parker can't say that but I think it's crazy that out of nowhere Michael. Tom Thought that that was some kind of knock against him and again the biggest thing here is that we need football back in our life. Yeah like saying one thing harder than another doesn't mean the others hard. I mean I don't think you can really look at it as a huge way of discounting you know. It's a hard to get a million dollars. It doesn't mean it's easy to get nine hundred ninety nine thousand dollars. You know what I mean like. I think that's where the big thing comes in there. But I do WANNA talk about this receiving core Josh because I really feel that for the next year and whether it's you know one hundred percent my fault I think this this group is what we're GonNa really have under the microscope. The most and I started to see more people talk about it. When my first prediction of the fifty three roster it's almost as toughest mock draft sometimes the amount of fifty three man roster people you know put out especially this time of the year but you know this group. Outside of Parker who again we thought for one year. We need to see much much more but you know the way. He responded that you see him growing. It's weird devante Parker veteran on this team men. And that's something we really have to accept them Mannheim flies Jesus. But you look at this group at and what they're going to do with whether it's Patrick or whomever that quarterback at Ed you have to be a little intrigue but we really need to get this conversation going out of guys like Alad hearns. Can He may be come back and had this huge year with someone you know. If you WANNA compare divide they parking. To someone I feel like Allan Allan Robertson Zev right. Yeah on Robinson. I mean having him outside of Allen her and you think about the Jaguars Team I think. It was twenty sixteen. That made the playoffs. I mean Parker Robinson. I think you can kind of make that comparison with a lot alike so can allen hearns. Come back and have a big year. His Press Williams going to be healthy too keen grant. You think like people are talking about it on twitter. Today there are a lot of punt return options on this team. Juki grant struggled with catching the ball at times last year. You look at those. Josh Rosen highlights of that cowboys game and you see that even against the Patriots Albert Wilson. He took a pay cut and he's really rolling the dice here. In terms of the Dolphins GonNA use me as a premier player. Is this group. GonNa really be the what the dolphins need. And you know someone who is in product nearly enough and all this as Mike Seki not only is he catching balls that he's thrown to himself. I mean he's prime to have the season of his career in the Changli offense. That loves big guys you think about your psyche. Obviously they don't a daily offense doesn't use a tight end. You know hugging left tackle. They have a mountain to slap. Who called the fourth With most the fourth most yards. Excuse me out of the slap last year according to Pro Football Focus Mike Sake and then I had another statistic I believe of just how he could be actually time release statistic. Pf just went into the huge thing about how he is the one prime for this big year and I think it's really important. We start to talk about as being one of the stars. The faces of this Miami Dolphins offense moving forward out of that receiving core. I think it is Parker into Seki a one. A and one B for for this feeding or the food chain. The dolphins want go. Yeah it is one of the most you know uncertain situations on the roster because a lot of it has to do with. Can they repeat what they did last season? We saw a huge step up in like just sick. He's production because he was asked to block. I think he was. He stuck back blocked. The most is your with Adam Gates. I mean we saw him take the next step last season. We saw devante. Parker take the next step last season we Preston Williams on pace joke about it because I looked up. And I'm just GONNA keep saying he was on pace to Jerry Rice's rookie yard a Jerry Rice. But I just love the use that so. I think what's most fascinating? Here's a Albert Wilson. Took that pay cut and I think it was. The Miami Herald reported that the plan as of now. No course this could change over the next few weeks months you know based on how they perform preseason based on how they pick up this new fence Yada Yada Yada etc etc. Devante Parker impressed. The Williams will be those guys on the outside and then they expect Albert Wilson to be that slot receiver if you take a step back and look. What Wilson did before that injury? I mean that's exciting. You mentioned you Kim Grant. We have to see him. Finally take that next step and be worth that contract because we talked about it on one of our little book clubs that we did he was supposed to have similar numbers to Taylor. Gabriel because we crunched numbers and said you know what the contracts there I think I think he got outperformed by Taylor Gabriel. I think that's remained the thing that sticks out in my head that he's not even as good as Taylor. Gabriel right now. I know some of that has to injuries. Whatever the reason is but we need to see more education grant. We didn't even mention. Isaiah Ford who stepped up big towards the end of the year. I think it was the jets game when devante Parker went down. I afford showed flashes. And that's a guy that I think in the right offense. Young player can really exceed expectations. And then there's Malcolm pair he's listed as a wide receiver. No one truly knows where he's going to end up. You got other guys like Matt Collins. I is a Gary Jennings. I mean you can go through the dolphins list of wide receivers and some people say who the heck is that like I. I don't even that is but the dolphins have plenty of guys. We need to see. Take the next step this year and whether trying fitzpatrick like you said whether it's a ton of Iowa that is the expectation because the dolphins attacked the interior offensive and defensive lines this off season. I think a lot of people expect them to go hard after the offensive side and get some of those skill players next year. So we got to see who's going to be around long term. We found hers. Were that contract with Kim. Grants worth that contract. We thought Wilson's going to be here. There's a lot of question. Marks have been the dolphins receiving core but with question you know as much uncertainty as there is there if they can repeat and do some of the things that we've seen him do throughout the career..
"devante" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Can I rip Mark Rick for just like thirty seconds? Can I can I do that? I haven't done it in a while. I haven't talked pent up, and he's okay. But you're done with the fantasy stuff. Here's the deli. Tried to get off the ground there. It's about fantasy. I'm still hearing three years later about the time that I took devante Freeman from her because we were watching red zone. And we're like, hey, this guy's had five touchdowns in two. This is how resentment works. It's good. He is right. It is good that you're learning these things now at the beginning before you get married because ten years from now the toilet seat's going to be. Devante parker. Dante Freeman fight. But here's the thing. I'm still not hearing the end of it. And she won the championship that year without him. And I'm still not hearing the end of when I took her took him from her have you ever noticed? How there's so many devante as in the NFL, and none in the NBA. Are there that many devante Freeman atoms? Devante parker. Devante this the vaunted Coleman, right? Devante this. I'm sorry. This is what else? Labonte? There's a Levada to there are certain things that are very football specific, for instance, players with long dreads, that's a football thing when super cool coming out of the helmet when I see guys on the basketball court would long dreads the first thing, I think is your reckless and out of control your high energy guy who might hurt somebody can three mantras herald. Jay crowder. Look all of them had the same kind of stereotype that is funny there are they all thick. They all thick sort of six seven guys very athletic very charged but thick not wiry wiring. No loo we never had ribs. That was a ponytail. Wasn't it? Brian grants were kind of they weren't long enough. But he was also an energy guy, by the way, richt may. Can I I don't know. I don't ask me. I mean he wanted to talk about. I mean did have something he wanted. No. No. No. No, no. Because I feel like what I wanna talk about has national show merits. This is a very local story have at the national show. I saw golick and wingo talking about this very topic about how Mark richt couldn't recruit his nephew top target snap. You order back. Cousin? No, no. No, no. Yeah. John. Rick, mark. Rick son is a quarterbacks coach here. They couldn't recruit their nephew. And people are go LSU. He went to LSU now. So it's not just that you lost him. You lost him to Edward Jura. Yeah. You lost him, Ned origin. Now. Ed, or you're on his more powerful getting people who have value inside of the Rick family, then Mark richt IDs. One of those stories that you just wanna be mad at though because it doesn't really matter. He has like thirty eight percent completion percentage. Like, he's. Oh, he is seven to six touchdown intersect. What what is star? Well, he's Brad John four-star. He's Brad Johnson, son. Now, a lot of people know this Johnson from temple. Yeah. Yeah. Who went to FSU so lines. Yes. So, but you're right. I think the bigger indictment here is that he is a four star probably not a true for star. And the biggest indictment is that. He was their top target because he doesn't have the stats backup. He just got the look, you know, may I if if I may we have the lineage, correct? Because if it's Brad Johnson son that that Brad Johnson, married, Mark Rick's wife, Marcus sister, rather, Mark six sister sister. So that's a nephew. We've got that. Right. It's a net. That's how that that's how that works. Okay. Yeah. And it would be funny if he married Mark works wife that would that would that would explain why he's not going to Miami. Everyone's mad at Tim Reynolds. Put it best set. Everyone wants Mark richt to fire his son. But they're mad when Margaret can't recruit his neck..
"devante" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"A while for fantasy players to come around and know, the names of certain DB's where you you go off crap my wide receivers up against this guy. Dens award is quickly approaching that status already in his young career. But he got hurt last week. He would see a lot of Calvin Ridley if he plays and their replacement right now their insurance is Phillip Gaines who was waived by buffalo. So if ward is out cover Ridley will get a slight bump in the rankings this matchup. I know we're going to get into start to the week later there. Are some players that will be featured in the starts of the week from this matchup. Like, I said, it's a great man acres thrown multiple touchdowns. Three weeks in a row Atlanta gives up the fourth most passing yards per game right now over three hundred so and bakers at home, and I think it's a strong start for Baker Mayfield this week. Right now, Nick Chubb, I've got him very high this week. I liked the matchup for Nick Chubb. Yeah. Chubs a great play Duke Johnson. I think is also great play. This is do the John through Mark Ingram. We just talked about Ingram. I I mean, I've said this for a couple of weeks running now wrong. I believe in marking room. I think he's going to have a great game. So I would still have marking ahead of Duke Johnson that Duke Johnson with the pass catching against the falcons. I mean, the falcons are notorious they always allow the most receptions, two running backs just the way they played defense. Do you think Duke Johnson has a safer floor? Then Mark Ingram. Yeah. Yeah. I definitely think that Duke Johnson has a safer floor. If you're in a PR league. But this is a situation where if if for some reason, you have chub and Duke Johnson, I would be fine on the same roster starting both of these guys. And that's okay. That's going to be rare as the season goes along. This is not a Tevin Coleman. Devante freeman. You know, proven offense. And then of course, Matt Ryan, you're you know, we got a mention him just because he has been on fire leading the league in yards per game. You've gotta start Matt Ryan if you've got him now, let me we're talking about smashing the glass. I love to have in common where we're going to feature him a little bit later foreshadow. How do you feel about ITO Smith? He's playing on about you know, the mid forty percent of snaps. Hi over under. He was ten for sixty had a Beasley touchdown this past week. Do you are you, okay? In an emergency throwing ITO Smith and your flex or you're trying to find a different option. I am makes it find. Okay. Yeah. The man he is a matchups, you know, play. He makes me so sad. Because I drafted a lot of devante Freeman. And he is getting so many goal line opportunities. Ito Smith is. And he's just not that good. And so it's like, oh, my devante Freeman would have been great. I like you Smith. I I think the guy I think he's I think he's fine. I think he's gonna shape up to be a good running. It takes time. Jas his career is over. I'm sorry to see him retire. Like this. I looked Austin Hooper's away a little bit this week to try to figure out and that was just on the basis of look the Browns are real bad against tight ends. I settled on the fact that I just don't think I think Austin Hooper benefited quite a bit from injuries to sue and Calvin Ridley this, and that's where his explosion came from. And like like we said there are three starts of the week. We're gonna feature from this game. You just can have to wait. Oh, the three and five Jags take on the three and five colts. Andy's almost upset of the week. The only way I can do that is because of this next part? The colts are three point favorites at home. It's a forty six and a half point over under. That's right on my line of where I'm allowed to throw. My almost upset of the weekend course. You make the rules. I do I have all I love this almost upset. It's crazy to me that the colts our favorite in this game..

"And the majority of targets went to the tight end to avoid the pass rush and to avoid running the ball. So Devin funchess disappointment DJ more disappointment. Paul blowout Samuel. And then don't buy into. Devante Parker Kenney. Still earned went the way of the one for eight which was crazy. Hopefully, people are paying attention on Sunday. This is why we have the Sunday live stream. So you can get all the breaking news because this happened was was reported out by Adam Schefter, and then and then he warmed up and apparently that was good enough and he played and devante Parker saw a downturn. Because of it got to avoid all the targets for Sam darnold at this point Quincy. Meanwhile, Robbie Anderson and Jemaine Kerr's combined for what three for forty four for thirty two three for twenty on nineteen total targets by next week. You can dump them all Tyler Lockett three for twenty two is the force rate week where lock it only has four targets or fewer. Look, he's touched on her bus guy. One hundred percent. He does score. But I was going to say when he got any well on search for the touchdown. In fact in this game. He really almost had the touchdown, but the pass interference call and really the pass interference took it away. He's a fringe guy though. I mean on the more this week. He was barely on the wide receiver to edge. So Ed Dickson Jason speak to Dixon for as long as you read. Did nothing to see here. Let's talk about Jared cook. Yeah, he stunk. Karl Rudolf did his thing to for twenty eight loves it. He loves to for twenty five Vanja McDonald disappointing game recover a fake touchdown. Yeah. He did. He got a touchdown for like ten minutes. Yeah. And then they took it away. Jordan reed. Four for thirty four. Look that one is really Davis. Let's better than Jordan Reed into story. Yep. He just looks better. And then Austin Hooper three for forty one. He has returned to earth. He had a couple nice games. Those fun talking about him. I want to answer a couple of mailbag questions before we leave you guys up for sure. All right. Mailbag? Got a couple of questions for two night. Oh, no. I've changed my mind. Well, if.
"devante" Discussed on The Phinsider
"Adam gaze is being reported as his biggest fan in the building by three yards per carry and is seen as if Adam gaze over the past two years has been gaining more and more control and personnel and Evatt engaged loves. Devante Parker and his biggest fan, then he's probably winning that power struggle more often than up. I'm going to start with you house. Will we see the same? Devante parker. We saw against the Houston Texans or was this. That was a or was just outta Mirage? We're devante name was being floated around and he wanted to put on a show for the rest of the Lee. Well, honestly think it's a little bit of both in. I just wanna clarify of a sun that did the film breakdown. You check that out on the Finsider own. But overall, I mean, this is a devante Parker that you thought you were going to get when you draft him with the fourteenth pick in two thousand fifteen draft six reception hundred thirty four yards twenty two point three yards per reception. End that long forty six and it it's hard to sit here and say, whether or not, you know, this is the devante Parker renaissance three of the year because we've seen it throughout his his first several seasons. You know, the injury bug kinda hits him, you know, whether it's nagging hamstring handed shoot, whatever it may be and they just miss his games, you kinda goes away. But I do think a lot of it had to do, you know, Houston's defense their secondary was pretty banged up. I think they lost a couple of guys during that game prior to that game. They were banged up. But at the end of the day, I mean, this is all the dolphins had. They had. Devante parker. You know? Kenny stills was out. Our Wilson's out. Yes. You came grant. You gotta Danny amendola. But but but. What it comes down to is. Devante Parker is at number one wide receiving you song go out there and be dominant. He beat his defensive back. You beat the guy across from just every single time. You just hope that this is more of the devante Parker that we see coming over the next few weeks because his cap it next season if they pick up that fifth year option, I think it's nine million, and that's not a ton of money for guy of his caliber that when he can go out there and make these plays. I think he's every bit worth nine million dollars. When we look around the league. So it's not a surprise Adam gays police misguide because he has a lot of similarities with the Sean Jefferies the Damaris Thomas's at he wants coached. I mean, the injuries are there. Also, I mean to marry Thomas he was one of those guys in Denver that he had the same problem. He was just in and out of the lineup. He had these nagging issues that kept him out, and then Sean Jeffrey to in Chicago. So I think he's one of those players that he sees a lot of those guys in he knows that he can be that game changing number one wide receiver that has offense desperately needs. And you just hope that he can continue to do what he's doing because a. Team wasn't gonna give up on the dolphins wanted. And it was reported as a third round pick whether or not that was true. No one will ever know. But if it was and it does seem that the dolphins according to three yards per carry..
"devante" Discussed on The Phinsider
"And you mentioned our Wilson going down that was a huge blow. Sonoma guy like devante Parker to go out there, and you know, fill that role. But it seems like you said he may be traded. It was nice to Kane, Drake. It back in every even he had a few mistakes. So the offense they went out there and played. Well, Brock Osweiler played. Well, but the defense just went out there and just could not stop the run game. They sold out like you said to stop the passing game golden Tate really didn't do much yet. One big gain Kenny golladay, he he's a monster. I mean, he's one of those most underrated. You know, second year wide receivers Neta fell right now and more of Jones see was pretty much nonexistent. So you'd like to see what the dolphins offense did on the same side. The dolphins defense just went out there and they also scam so ma- perk. Look yourself in the marine to get those guys playing because they're went up against a very good Houston. Offense Brock osweiler's having that what we might call revenge game. But if he plays way did today on Thursday, the dolphins should have no reason not to win that game is gonna come back down to the defense. And the defense definitely to step up. If they wanna have shot the playoffs, come January. The Texans are very hot team. And as you mentioned the dolphins have a lot of work to do before. This Thursday Texans are for no in the last four games in one against the Jacksonville Jaguars today. They are dealing with some injuries. But not as much as Miami is Albert Wilson may be significant leg injury that he suffered today in the first half. He may be a month or more. Now, if that is the case that could open the door for to bhante park at a comeback into this team. And not be traded. It would be one heck of a story of if that is the case and he plays as early as Thursday, and he just balls out and becomes the player that everyone thought he was going to be. We'll obviously see how that plays out. But I am not optimistic at this point of Albert Wilson playing on Thursday night, which leads us to our decimated receiver core. Dolphins addressed four receivers in today's game Wilson, stills amendola and grants. Once Wilson went down there were three then stills got hurt at the end down to to the Kenyan Drake playing on the slot ezekie out in the slot and out wide. It was just a bad situation. All around the when you look up and down the roster. They don't have anything else. I mean, they have. Devante Parker who's up up. Down. You have Isaiah Ford on the practice squad..

"It was crushing people's souls in come on, do it? Well, in fairness, the they said, they want to do it in and sometimes it does take after the game going back watching and seeing your mistake. So this is great news coming from Vance I buy in because of what an egregious mistake was made. And because like Andy said, the devante Booker role can go. Away. So maybe maybe he's he was the two minute guy. They're getting more touches Royce Freeman to me, does not mean where all of a sudden I'm gonna put Freeman in on two minute drill. He has that schism. I agree. Lindsey has it. Lindsey is probably more proficient in that situation. I would rather than put Lindsay in the two minute punt you know, devante Booker off bridge and then get get your in minutes bridge. Just looked the year of punk people off the braille bodies collecting at the bottom. If you're bringing a lot of. Oh. It takes them all the way out of the earth. Yes, back where you came from, there's a an inlet somewhere, just filled with players. Jason is cascaded away, darn, right, and devante Booker got a one way tour a one way. One way tour of the ocean. We don't know where this is going devante atoms. On the other hand will not practice Thursday because of a calf injury. He suffered during Wednesday's session who also doesn't practicing all starting wide receivers for the Packers. So what what do you or their quarterback. If devante Adams doesn't play, I have less confidence in the look. I know you like Jamal, Jamal net? Jim Mon morale and Ramon Marquez. Yeah. But where's your confidence lie? Isn't it? Wouldn't it be better placed in a place like Jimmy grammar time on Gumri. Yeah, I those two are are my first two up, but then it would be Marquez Valdez, scant Ling who looked very good and would be the next guy up. What do you start Hines or Montgomery? If let's say Hines, atoms is out how you won't know that. But Montgomery has had four or five carries six catches to catches. You'd rather go Hines. Yeah, just because I know I know what the role is for Hinds tonight and I would have to, I don't know who's going to be out for the Packers. Okay. All right. What else is going on is that for news? I think that's all we have a reminder in and out tomorrow. Grow. All the injury news will make our predictions on who starts who sets and.
"devante" Discussed on GSMC Football Podcast
"I mean, it's not confirmed that he will play on Sunday, but I mean if he's practicing fully and all that, then you got to think that he will be. So we'll see what ends up property that games should be fun between them and the jets the jets absolutely blew Detroit out of the water and that game Monday night. I mean, like I said, either Detroit quit there, but I think it was one where Detroit which is just a bad performance. I mean, I'm giving up thirty one in the third. I don't think he's going to do anything like that. So it will be a close game. I'm tends to play well in New York against the jets, so we'll see what ends up happening. I'll be making my pick for that game tomorrow. But other way, like I said, I mean as far as the volative Parker. Kind of over him. I'm ready to call him a bust Kelvin Benjamin, where you're not even sure if he's a number two receiver. He just might be a number three type guy, both him in Belgium Benjamin's. They've been in the league of struggle to stay healthy and even when they are. Have they really done anything? No. Like I said, Demonte. Parker's king of garbage time. So. That's all I have for devante Parker dolphins, dolphins, obviously happy being one. And now if they got the jets this week in the raiders next week, they win this week. They could very well finish the first three weeks, three. And then you've got the patriots, the bangel and schedule gets tougher after that. So the way we're going to wrap it up here. Next two segments, we will be talking about anything else going on in the world of football. So stay tuned and we'll be right back.
