7 Burst results for "Devo Samuel"

"Anthony Richards in the hotel parking lot last night, didn't waste he didn't want to waste any time his first impression of Richardson. Quote, his arm is crazy. That's right. The eagles defeated the forty-niners in the NFC championship game last year. The game that was pretty close until San Francisco quarterback Brock 30 went down with an elbow injury that was followed by Josh Johnson suffering concussion that led 30 back into the game, but basically had no functionality. Devos Samuel apparently still bitter about the loss he told complex dot com, the reason they lost was both because we played with ten people. Mina last night check it's may. That being said, does debo Samuel have a point? I mean, yes, he does. It sounds salty and it's entirely possible that even with Brock birdy, the eagles would have beat them, but they did lose because they didn't have a quarterback or at least, you know, that is what prevented them from winning. I don't really see how anyone could dispute that. They were playing with one hand, almost literally tied behind his back. Again, the eagles might have eaten them. I'm not saying that, but it was not a fair fight by any means. It wasn't, but can we get the number that bus that just hit Josh Johnson? My goodness. Just throwing my man straight under it. No, they're right, though. I mean, that game was tragic. We were talking about Christian McCaffrey or Kyle, use check playing quarterback. In the NFC championship game. So yes, there's some bitterness. The NFC needs this rivalry, though. The AFC has all the great young quarterbacks, the NFC needs this niners eagles rivalry to really pop off and give us that east coast West Coast thing going again. From my Intel about that game, the forty-niners thought that they could tear them apart as far as throwing the football in that game. The wide receivers in particular, you know, Brandon and I was in depot Samuel both were disappointed in the fact that they didn't have anybody that could get the ball to them. You saw how that game started off early on. They were going to throw The Rock against the Philadelphia. It would have been cool to see how it would have played out because I think that game would have been very, very, very close. Oh, for sure, because I covered that game and to watch players walking forty-niners players walk into that postgame press conference, all of them ticked off just deflated because they know that that was a game that they feel they could have won. And even George kittle said, what do I feel about not having any healthy quarterbacks? Yeah, bleep and sucks. That's how they felt. So I'm not surprised that they are still salty about it to this day. I'm a little surprised 'cause it's Cinco de Mayo, but what do I know? I think it's time for us all to move forward here. We are to the 2023 season. We're just getting started here on NFL live. Did the jets do enough in the draft to help new quarterback Aaron Rodgers still get used to that one?

There's a lot of reasons why the jets are attractive. The team like the jets who have always been the jets. Let's talk the same old jets. You know, this was a good football team. I still had that fire and I want to play and you work. Roger steps and fires. Look on you guys. Man, what a week in New York is Aaron Rodgers made his debut of the jets facility starting workouts with his new two minute teammates, then today The Rookie class showed up including first round pick will McDonald and second round pick Joe titman a center from Wisconsin whose mullet aptly made the Wisconsin waterfall. He's going to keep it and he's going to continue to grow it out. Matt, what'd you think of the jets draft and particularly how it pertains to helping Aaron Rodgers? Yeah, field I think they got jumped for the last remaining left tackle come and play right away by the Pittsburgh Steelers from Broderick Jones went. I have to be honest. I don't think they did enough to help Aaron Rodgers up front. They did not get a starting caliber left tackle. They drafted Carter Warren in the fourth round from Pitt. And while he has started 40 games in college, there's injury concerns. And this is a player that when I talk to scouts before the draft, they thought, ah, he's probably gonna play right tackle in the NFL. This is probably gonna be a position change. Maybe even a guard. The draft Joe tipton in the center that you mentioned in round two, but they had just signed Connor mcgovern, a free agent center, a couple days before the draft so that they wouldn't have to go. After a sinner, we have to remember Elijah berry Tucker, who moved from left guard to right guard last year, tourist triceps, the very play after Brees hall, tourist ACL. So there is a lot of changing moving parts on this jets offensive line that wasn't that good a year ago. So if it's still Dwayne Brown, if it's max Mitchell or mci Beck then it right tackle, guys. The offensive line in New York is a big question mark and it's why if I had to do it right now, I would say the bills and dolphins are still ahead of the jets even with the great Aaron Rodgers there at quarterback. Yeah, I think so there's still definitely some concerns when you're talking about this offensive line. And look, I like Joe Pittman a lot. I think he's a guy who's already made starter at the NFL despite some people feeling as though he needs to change positions and maybe move the guard. I think they got a good one to tackle position is going to still be a problem. And you know that there are some very, very good edge rushers that could make life real miserable, you know, for Aaron Rodgers, but what I do love about this football team is the fact that look at the wide receiver positions. I mean, they are set at the skill positions. They're set at wide receiver Garret Wilson is going to take a huge jump. Alan Lazar is going to help him with that at a tight end. I love Tyler Conklin. I love the one he was in Minnesota. I think he's going to love Aaron Rodgers, obviously. I think at running back with the return of the health of breeze hall and the drafting of a guy like is he a banner candidate from Pitt? I mean, they have one of the best running back rooms in the NFL period. Period. And on the defensive side, look, will McDonald is just going to juice up this already good pass rush. And the secondary will be good to go. Look, I think this team, although it's made some improvements, offensive line is still an issue. Everybody knows that I like some other teams in the east anyway, but I think right now they're closer. They're much, much closer. We'll have to keep

Let's bring back in Jeff Darlington. For some top stories around the NFL, Jeff we start with the latest on Lamar Jackson. What can you tell us? Well, I would love to tell you more, Laura, but when it comes to Lamar Jackson, the waiting game continues. Certainly we know that the non exclusive tag has been placed on him. So far a very slowly developing market to say the least for Lamar Jackson outside of Baltimore, but at this point I'm also told that nothing is imminent in terms of Lamar Jackson's signing that tender or ultimately accepting any deal from the ravens, so instead we wait and Lamar waits for something to materialize as well. Deandre Hopkins trademark is certainly something that we're watching very closely. When we talk to people around the league, it's pretty clear that most teams know that Hopkins can be had if, in fact, a team so desires. Now, talk to another number of teams that are out on him one team general manager telling me that they don't feel like his on field play really is worth that contract at this point, but there will be a team out there and assure you who will make that move at some point. Big move for the jets yesterday really paving the way for that potential trade for Aaron Rodgers. Elijah Moore on the way out, this allows the jets to require a second round pick instead of the third that they had that went to Cleveland. This obviously a situation where that slot receiver spot opens up mecole Hardman signs with the team to replace Elijah Moore, but don't just go ahead and ignore that wide receiver room. We still could see change on the rise in maybe more additions, maybe more subtractions. Yeah, there is that wish list, Aaron Rodgers. You got to fill that up. Potentially, okay? Hardman is dangerous, by the way, with the ball in his hands. Here's exactly what the jets are getting since entering the NFL in 2019. He's averaged 8.3 yards after the catch per reception. That's the second highest rate among wide receivers trailing only Devo Samuel. You think about his game and it paints the picture. He joins a group of jets wide receivers that includes another new edition, of course, Allen lazard, along with last season's offensive rookie of the year Garrett Wilson. Here's Hardman today on why he wanted to come to New York. The jets was a good situation. I think they got a great foundation here that they got some nice pieces. I think Alex Lazar, you know, him signing, you know, playing alongside him have been great too and they got a great second year player now and Garrett Wilson, who had an absolutely, you know, unbelievable year. Guys are those names, you know, just to play alongside them, definitely know is attractive. And I mean, obviously, you know, the news with a rod and everything like that. Still don't know what's going on with there, but that's something you can think about. But besides that, it was just more so than the jets itself was like the right fit for me. All right, so Jeff, you kind of hinted at this. There's the wish list and the jets may or may not be done bringing in receivers. Give us a name that you've got your eye on there. I'll give you the name and that is Odell Beckham junior. We should continue to keep our eyes on this potential match. You saw that list of notable wide receivers for the jets and you saw at the bottom of it Corey Davis who has that fourth highest cap hit right now going into this season. Davis obviously very vulnerable. And if you can replace him with someone, that's someone could very well be Odell. Both sides still believe that this is a potential fit. Now there are obviously financial differences or I believe this thing would be done. Ultimately, keep an eye on this. It's still could happen. There is still is room, despite what looks like a very crowded wide receiver room, changes can be made, but Odell very much on the radar of the New York chance. Yeah, it odors come out, Tim and said he's not asking for 20 million a year or at least not now, but he thinks that 4 million is too low. When you think about, I know, right? When you think about his actual fit, though, on a jets offense, I guess in this moment, let's assume Aaron Rodgers is their quarterback. How does that look for you? I think that would be good. I think Odell Beckham junior paired with Aaron Rodgers is a good thing. Because I do think it's important for Odell to play with a quarterback that kind of has the ability to remain in control. And I think Aaron obviously would have that. Have that. And I think that supporting cast at wide receiver, I think you would fit in fine with that. My only fear with the jets is we kind of talk about this. It's like, all right, hey, Aaron Rodgers. And hey, OBJ, and here comes Ezekiel Elliott. Like, you know, you do need guys to run down on the kick-off team and be on the punt team. And there is elements of the team aspect and young players that kind of play above their contract that all good teams have. Right. And so I think it's important to have that and not lose sight of that if you just continue to add star after star. It's a really young team too, so you wonder about the actual complexion of the team chemistry. There's just a lot there that has yet to be sorted out. And Robert, along those lines, where else should the jets be looking to add in your mind? Well, Laura, to even piggyback off what Tim said, the more guys you have in that wide receiver room, if you're 5 deep of guys who want to be the guy, you don't have guys to run down on kick-off and to do be the gunner on punt. So I think that's a very valid point, but an even bigger point for the jets is their offensive line. You can have all the skill guys you want, but if you don't have guys to protect Aaron Rodgers, that's gonna be a problem. Last year they were ranked 21st in the league in pass block win rate. That's terrible. They had 9 differing start different starting offensive line units. They had 11 different line in that played up front and they didn't have the same 5 guys play more than three games in a row together. That's a massive issue. So they want to keep the draft capital that they have and I think that might be something that's slowing down this trade with the packers because they don't want to give up that first round pick or even maybe those two second round picks because they know they have to add to the offensive line to protect a guy in Aaron Rodgers at 39 who isn't quite as mobile as he used to be and those hits hurt. Robert, did you start the show with those glasses on? Did you put them on? Just now? I did not start the show with the glasses on, but as you know, when the glasses go on, the facts come out. You know what? I'm really glad I asked about that. That was really worth it, right?

"To the MM QV NFL podcast. I'm Gary gremlin. And I'm Conor roar. And Conor, we're going to talk a little bit about the back 7 defenders in this NFL Draft class coming up. But first, we're going to start with a trend that we've talked about on this show for a couple of years. And that is these wide receivers from the 2019 draft class. The guys who were drafted outside the first round, they are going into the last year of their contracts and their eligible for extensions, and they are looking at the Christian Kirk to the world and saying, well, now it's time for us to get paid. Yeah, and not only Christian Kirk, but because he walked up the market for sort of your high end medium to high end receivers. Maybe even like your strong number two wide receivers. And then devonte Adams, tyreek hill, they walked up the market for your elite premium athlete wide receivers. And even though some of that is obviously phony math, I think what Tyree kill us that $900 million deal year on the back end of his contract to raise the average annual value. But like, you know, he's making $30 million a year as far as deebo Samuel is concerned. And so yeah, you know, all these guys are looking at what's happening in the NFL. They're seeing the gold mine develop and they're seeing a bunch of general managers who are now encouraged and probably a lot more freewheeling in their ability to acquire players and to pay players. And so they're just like, yeah, let's go get it. And I don't blame them. I mean, this is the right time. This is the right time to go and get it. It absolutely is. And we're gonna start with the most unusual of these cases, and that is debo Samuel because there's something going on here. And we don't know exactly what, but he has demanded a trade from the forty-niners. Obviously he is going to get a new contract. Adam Schefter put out the report that the forty-niners are very much willing to pay him. But he seems to really have no interest in continuing on with that organization. Now, he is interesting, obviously, for that reason. He's also interesting as a guy who he plays a lot out of the backfield. He takes more hits than a lot of these guys. He takes a different kind of physical punishment on the field. And on top of that, he is a guy who came into the league with some durability concerns based on a torn ACL based on the fact that he's not, you know, we're not talking about 230 pound dude here. Yeah. It's interesting like, you know, at first I was like, wow, he carries the ball a lot. I mean, it's never been more than 8 times a game in the regular season, but then this postseason was fairly significant. I mean, it's a ten, 72, a ten for 39, and then a 7 for a 7 for 26, but over time, right? I mean, that's 27 postseason carries that 60 regular season carries. And then the two years before that, so I mean, it's a hundred carries, which is not, you know, that's not an insignificant amount of times, you know, additional times you'd be touching the ball, then another wide receiver. So I think if I'm another team, I'm looking at that man like, eh, I don't know. I mean, I'd like to see the full medicals on everything here. I mean, I'd like to, I'd like to know what's going on in the back end here. And 26, you know, I don't know, that's not young for a running back. And if your best traits are the speed, the burst, the athleticism, the contact, which is what Kyle Shanahan loves, right? Yards after the catch, guys who love to initiate contact and get those extra yards by bowling over cornerbacks and linebackers. Are you worth trading that a bounty for? I don't know. It's an interesting question. That's the other thing. If you're another team, are you looking at a guy who was in probably the well, arguably, we'll say, well, sort of back off of this, I'll be a coward. Arguably the best designed offense and best called offense in the NFL, are you looking at Devo Samuel and being like, yeah, that's really neat, but I don't know if our guys can also do this. Yeah. So here's the give and take, right? People kind of would liken this maybe to a patriots receiver leaving New England. But I've never, I don't ever remember a time where half of the NFL was running the Patriots offense, right? And that's probably where we are, right? With Kyle Shanahan's offense, I would say about half, do you think that's right? Yeah, yeah. I'm looking at it in that neighborhood. I'm looking at it. I think we entered last year at like 30 or 40%. I mean, you have what half of the AFC east you have half of the AFC south, you have one team in the AFC west. Yeah, I mean, you know, you have half the teams in the NFC north. Yeah, I mean, you have a great deal of teams who are running this offense. And so maybe you start to think that you could fork over the picks and make it work because that's all you do is you study forty-niners tape and you're learning the intricacies of the offense the way that Kyle Shanahan does it. The one team, can I spotlight an early team that I think might do it? The jets, right? Yeah. Jets are running that offense. You have John Benton and you have Lafleur. Mike Lafleur, from the forty-niners, right? And not only that, but you've already tried to trade for Tyree kill. You've sort of, you've made that clear, you have draft capital. Out the wazoo. So make it work. Make it happen. Go get deebo Samuel. Get Zach Wilson some help. Yeah, there we go. Problem solved. What a strange situation is though. Again, I don't, I don't know what's going on between deebo Samuel and the forty-niners, but it seems like there's something there. Yeah. You know what? You know how serious I am about this Gary? How serious? I'm just, we're talking, but I'm tweeting. I'm tweeting about this. The jets, the jets should acquire Tebow sim. I'm tweeting it. Gotta get it out now. Just gotta get it out now.

"To know that. I like that he's not offensive coach, but the one thing I love and I know it's gonna be fun at minimum. He's gonna give really fun, interesting answers that press conferences and I hope just lean into his personality. And I'm like, look, train record not whatever happens here. It's going to be entertaining. And that really, really excites me for Mike McDaniels. It might be Daniel. No S, Mike mcdaniel. Being the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Now, we have a question about this. Noah writes in and says, Noah writes in on Patreon as you can do Patreon dot com forward slash scholar. Noah says, hi Zack, I've been watching for over a year now. But this is my very first time writing, and thank you, welcome. This is a two parter at the end. I'm a dolphins fan and we just hired forty-niners offensive coordinator Mike mcdaniel. I'm not sure how I feel about this one, but one thing I'm interested in is how this will impact jaylen waddle. We saw what mcdaniel did with Devo Samuel this year, making him a focal point of the offense in the second half of the year in San Francisco. Do you think he could do something similar with Jalen waddle? Not necessarily utilize in the same fashion. They're not the same type of athlete. But having the offense go through him as opposed to a quarterback or running back and having special plays and or formations. Here are my questions. Number one is that something mcdaniel could try and do. And two could that work? So I don't think you're going to see Jalen waddle used exactly like debo Samuel. They're not the same athlete. That would be a fool's errand. But what's really encouraging about Mike mcdaniel coming to Miami is that what we saw with him in San Francisco is he found a way to best utilize the personnel they had. He got the best out of everybody there. He used debo sandbo like running back because debus Samuel basically is a running back who can catch and he's just crazy hybrid of a receiver and a running back. Jaylen waddle is really good with the ball in his hands and I don't think they're gonna use him running between the tackles up the middle. Certainly not at all. But they're gonna use him outside stretching. I think maybe more similar to the way tyreek hill is used in Kansas City. A lot of fly sweeps, a lot of stuff out wide. Get him in space with the football. And yeah, I think they're going to lean heavily on him. And even if they don't, what I'm trying to say here is that it's just encouraging. They're going to use Jalen waddle a lot, get the most out of him, but also might be gain as a smart dude who if he can get the most out of debo Samuel, it gives me confidence he can get the most out of everybody else in Miami as well. And man, I'm just really, really excited to see what happens. And I think he's going to get the most out of tua, the most out of Jalen waddle, and I am excited to see how the draft and what they do, but I just think that what Miami has not had for quite a while. It's a really good exciting offense. And I am so very much hoping that Mike mcdaniel can bring that to Miami. Okay. Let's talk about the senior bowl..
"devo samuel" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"Even lost very many games in his life. Yeah, I mean, you know, you know you're gonna start over, right? You know, you're gonna run a new offense next year. You had an opportunity with those two first round picks to maybe grab some sustainable foundational talent and now you have a running back who you know you did play with in college and you know I think there's a relationship there, but it's coming off a serious injury and it's just so many other things that you probably could have used and you needed help with and you didn't get. And so I don't know. You know, I struggle with this because I mean everything that could have been said about urban Meyer has been said to this point and you know it's weird like I don't think I think that there is probably an aspect of the NFL where if you come in from college, there is not a hope, but an expectation that you're gonna fail and probably a little bit of a side eye from the rest of the league in general like, what are you doing here? You don't belong here. And so that comes with an automatic lack of benefit of the doubt. But the way that Meyer went about it from start to finish was just different. Like, you know, I think that with chip Kelly, for example, there was a meeting of meeting the league at halfway, right? You're like, okay, this is how I've always done it, but this is what succeeds in the NFL. I think with cliff Kingsbury, it was. This is the offense that I run, but I need Jeff Rogers and I need Vance Joseph, and I need them to do a lot of the NFL things that stabilize this foundation, or Pete Carroll, or any of these guys. But with urban there just was never that, like urban, it was just like, I'm gonna walk in here and do things the way that I've always done them and it's going to work. And I've never really seen it approached directly that way before. Yeah, I think that's exactly right. I mean, with chip Kelly, I remember I did a story on his sports science coordinator and there were all of these curiosities or questions or even mockery. Oh my gosh, here's this guy coming in and now every team has a sports science program and they all wear the GPS trackers that chip Kelly ad, so he brought things to the NFL. He brought ideas. He worked hard. I think with Meyer was an entire coaching style based off of his past success in college. And there didn't seem to be any effort to grow or adapt or to do much of anything other than say, well, I was so successful in the past. We wrote a column last week in which I cited a speech he gave to one of the team's corporate sponsors last summer. And the things that he was saying didn't match at all to the mire that people saw in Jacksonville, you know, he said he gets through open and honest conversations easily and he said that if a player is underperforming, don't tell him he's a bad player. He's an NFL player. And the message of the time was well received in the room because you know he still has the ability to engage in captivate a room, but that's as three time college national championship winning head coach urban Meyer. He just felt like he could glide into the NFL doing things the same way he's always done them. And I think even his attitude even after the firing appears to be the same, he did one interview with NFL dot com's Ian rappaport and in that interview still seemed to not be doing the critical self examination that he should be doing, you know, he's saying society has changed and talking about how everything is so fragile right now. It's just kind of the excuse making that I think a lot of people saw in Jacksonville as well. I like in this too. And it's a convenient excuse. I mean, I think that we all are come across people who kind of use that as a crutch at some point. But there are a lot of really, really successful people in the NFL who don't seem to have a problem with the way that society is trending. You know what I mean? At every corner, it's like, okay, you know, I remember like when John Gruden was first coming back onto the scene and, you know, maybe it was him or you know some of these other coaches complaining about whether it was COVID regulations or you go back to when they would put in helmet to helmet targeting and it would be like, oh, this softness, this society this decided that and like good coaches are like, okay, let's find a way to maximize the potential out of this. Like this is a rule. We can't control this, so let's move around it. And even if you thought that there was a general softening of society, which I think we all kind of understand what he's trying to allude to there, like there are coaches that have employed experts on how to meet younger generations at their level and understand the way that they think and learn and have one on one conversations instead of kicking someone and calling him a dipshit, you know? Like, I don't know, it's just like, you know, I think it was a failure on his part, and, you know, we'll probably see him back in college again at some point, but I don't know. I think it's definitely going to change the way that NFL teams hire. I highly doubt we see another college coach coming out of the NFL for at least a couple of years. Yeah, I think you're right, Connor. I mean, there was already a skepticism of people making this jump. And this particular example went so poorly. Now the Jaguars, they made the move hours after Josh Lambo publicly revealed the incident in which she said Meyer kicked him and called him a dipshit after missing off a couple kicks in the pre season. Meyer has disputed that, but you could say that Jacksonville's handling from the ownership level could have been better and if this situation they were apparently made aware of it earlier in the season, why didn't warrant some kind of discipline or further consequences at that point in time? And then there was an explanation that the decision was made to move on from Meyer after the previous week's game, but they waited to do it later in the week for various reasons, including they wanted a staff holiday lunch to go on. I mean, that just didn't make any sense. Yeah, let's wait to fire the head coach so that we can have a staff holiday luncheon. I mean, so didn't quite understand that explanation, but you wrote an excellent head coach list, potential head coach list for candidates that might be foolproof for Jacksonville, so maybe they'll take a look at that and go in one of those directions. Well, the Jenny and Connor coach consultancy service is open for business, we are taking calls. But you know, maybe you and I just, you know, I mean, I got here at Sports Illustrated the last year we had a really nice Christmas party and that was really the first Christmas party I've ever had in my professional life before that you and I were ink stained wretches at a newspaper and I remember employee appreciation week was they put a little mince in the bathroom when you walked in. That was like the special thing. So maybe this was a really big holiday lunch and we just don't understand what it's like to have a really nice holiday lunch. Maybe so Connor, maybe so. So I'm glad the holiday lunch and went off without a hitch and now onto hiring the next head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Falcons forty-niners. All right, so this is the start of our lightning ish round, sort of an abbreviated lightning ish round because they're less games this week that have been played already, but niners. Hey, they're in the 6 seat position to make the playoffs. Seem like a team Connor that could be dangerous if they get in. Yeah, just one of those teams that I think if they can fix some of their defensive issues and they can dial some of that in. It's a team that you don't want to play, right? And I think that we remember watching the forty-niners in the packers that year that they went to the Super Bowl and just the effortlessness with which they were gutting that Green Bay defense with the running game. And now it's sort of like dualistic where you have all of that power you have all that ability, but then you have Devo Samuel who's also just like a game breaking running back now. Brandon and I you guys come around in recent weeks, not so much today, but you know over the last few weeks after as you turned it the come to Jesus meeting with Kyle Shanahan. So this is a team that I don't want to play. I think that they would just be super frustrating because if they have everything going right like they could come in and command the clock for 40 42 minutes. Yeah, and you mentioned the defensive side of the ball. They celebrated after a fourth and goal stop against the falcons. And I think they're looking for moments like that to cling to also notable that Nick Bosa coming off the ACL injury he got his 15th sack, so he's certainly,.
"devo samuel" Discussed on Get Your G.O.A.T.
"Both coming off bad losses, San Francisco, who was up and was in close with the Indianapolis Colts and they kind of gave that away and Jimmy G really looked bad in that game. Then you have the Chicago Bears who also just got beat the breaks out of that was bad against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38 to three. Which one will kind of write the ship now? San Francisco is at two one four Chicago's at three and four. I gotta say this in Chicago, Matt naggy is not putting in Justin Fields in a position to win football games. He is not. He didn't put Mitch trubisky in position. But only time he did well is when they had that stout defense or first year and they kind of shut everybody down and they kind of could have a quarterback. But since that defense, and since they're regression there, now and often, even that year, they were in great offensively. They're not great offensively now, and they've rotated coordinators. The key there is managing. He needs to go. He's not going to put Justin Fields in position to win football games. Justin feels to me great talent, but he is getting punished out there. The coach looks lost at his team looks lost. Because of that I'm rolling with San Francisco because even if I don't like Jimmy G, they still got straight Lance, jury's still out on both of them, but they got a for sure weapon and Devo Samuel even if George kittle's not there. I like their defense more than Chicago's at the moment. I think out of these two teams that are kind of reeling Chicago's last two in a row. San Francisco's lost four in a row. I think San Francisco writes the ship this week. They get the win against the bears. Won't be easy. These teams have proven that this season, but I think they'll get one. Then another very interesting game. Pittsburgh. And Cleveland will baker play this weekend. That's a question baker said he could absolutely play this weekend. But I don't buy it until you're cleared to play. My good sir. Do I think they need you to win every football game?.
"devo samuel" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"He's still plays. Reckless is Helen gets after it really looking forward to that Bosa. Not a lot, not a lot of practice Last couple weeks been out there with the team guys didn't working on the side over by himself. But anticipating that he's going to be right, both those guys could be maybe on a little bit of a pitch count. I would think in terms of the gas tank and and Getting their field for the game. Um and I think it's up to the guys inside. I mean, I still I will never underrate before is Buckner and what he meant to the defense. So the inside pass rushes has got to come alive, and that tells me that continuous street has to step up. D J has got to be able to stay healthy. Kevin Gibbons all those guys Eric Armstead when he gets inside, and now he's got an actual speed. Russia and Eric had a tremendous training camp and preseason, So it's such a You know, I mean, so big and so long that he needs space to work his moves. And when you don't have an address, er, a guy that really threatens up the field and threatens that tackle, But he's got a kick stuff and get the hell out of the way. All that tackle does is sit to the inside and not worry about getting beat to the outside, and that clogs the lineup for Armstead. So I think just having and we'll see a lot of bitches and matches where guys are on the same side of the field together. You have Armstead in both together, Armstead before together, Dee Ford and Bosa together. They'll have so many options that they're bringing these guys, but I think Armstead arm steps number is going right back to double digit sacks with that. What? That elite player out there next to him. So, um all know more after after this week, one game at Detroit about that group, but in terms of the depth, uh I think they're going to overwhelm people with wave Russians just constantly bringing in fresh water. It's the first of our weekly hangs with Tim Ryan, color analyst for the Niners on our radio network here on KNBR, the sports leader, Emmanuel mostly, he's doubtful for this game. So who do you think is the best option? The guy who just got here in Josh Norman or the rookie who's been hopefully trying to get up to speed to be the opposite corner of Jason. Brett. Yeah, I think it depends on you Know what? They're going to be running? How much, man? How much press so much off, man. How much covered three quarters all they're going to run all of it. You know, Josh has done all of it. No question throughout his career, man. I think that guy not having a training camp at his age is a good thing for him, so we'll have fresh legs. I do not know Cinnamon practice a lot this week. Out there with the ones and kind of doing his thing, and then you have the rookies. So, um, I don't know who is going to be. I'll be honest with you, but I think even one of them, um I don't think when you look at these receivers Tiro Williams can run. I had a shoulder injury, last year's big, long guy. Got a lot of juice to him, But I think when you think of Ducker being out the pass rush the ability, I think to kind of hip hop to the other receivers because they're not going to blow you away with speed. My think whoever's out there will be fine. Man, you mentioned the Ford man. He is perfected the techniques involved with the strip sacks of the fact that he's healthy, not only we're going to get some sacks. We're going to see some forced fumbles. And that's what to me is so exciting. I got to ask you one more on the quarterbacks, because to me it's really interesting what we saw in that first drive when they were flipping Garoppolo and Lance back. In and out of the game. Now, you know to me it was really interesting. The Lance Moster runs the mesh point trying to feel, you know, See that mesh point See who's got the ball because they're both legitimate run threats, And if they're going in opposite directions, I mean, you cannot be more conflicted as a defender. You even commented on the broadcast. But the common wisdom Tim is that you don't juggle the quarterbacks in the midst of a series. But you play d in the NFL. I don't know. My sense of it was that it put a lot of pressure and kind of a chaotic field to the defense there. What was your feeling on that? Well, I'm with you, but I think the thing that's different than most other places is Trey. Lance isn't just his own recorder back. He can in the offense isn't going to change. I mean, And they'll have two guys don't region there for Jimmy to so he can still run all the same place you can still throw from the pocket. Obviously, his mobility is a huge asset when the protection breaks down or nobody's open, but Um, you know, not a lot of teams have that type of talent sitting behind, sitting behind the starting quarterback. So, um, there's no doubt it's going to get people problems. How much we see it. I think it is. You know, that's that's the big question that everybody's got going into the week. Um, I don't know if we'll see it like we saw it in the radar game or it's right out of the gate. Now he's had on certain down a distant situations. But man, I think of a lot of opportunities you think of force into its plus 48. So your past midfield. That's it's fourth and to, um I don't know how much you want to get down in. The president need two point conversions. Think of the options that they've got now, with two point conversions, exactly, Um, with his legs and his ability to throw it so again, Load the boxer in trouble. And then if you really sell on it and all that zone, reach stuff and go back and watch some of the Robert Griffin the third tape when when I was coaching them there, there's a lot of pop passes off of, but On a dash is a lot of half rolls, or I mean, that's like, unbelievable play action. You get the linebackers take three or four steps, and then he pops back and just rips it down the field, So it's excited. Is this the, uh, the best weapons that you've seen since you've been with the 49 years and they've had some really good ones Don't get me wrong, but I think I was going to have a big year. Uh oh. Looks really good. Like he looks like he's in shape and ready to go. You got to do yoga twice a week could be like Devo Samuel. Hopefully. State of I always had that You haven't seen you reach over your shoulder to grab your wallet like he does. He's got those high pockets. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yo, yoga and me? No, not so much. Not so much. You know, It's funny, Tim. I thought it was like, how hard could yoga be, And then I did it. I go. This sucks. It's hard. Thought it was my wife. One time I'll never do it again. I'm like Kitty, You're hardly moving and you're sweating like a dog. Are you freaking kidding me? Oh, man. That question, I think. You know, chance to be really good. Obviously, When you look at the group, I tell you the guy I'm excited for him and I took it speaks for itself. Phone into your two when he was able to do last year and All the run after the catch stuff. He's still going to get better. No question with all of his route running and you know, a lot of this offense is post snap reads, and some of their routes are going to change in their you know, two or three steps into their into their route. So you know all that stuff is important, and he'll get better at all that stuff, but he's electrifying. Get the ball in DuBose hands anyway, you can and then I'm excited for trench. Your field man. You talk about a guy that comes to work and has worked on his craft, and it's gotten multitudes.
