"In the to not do that in the second overall pick. I don't know. All right, let's go. Let's get in the Packers and the 40 Niners obviously live here tonight from Levi Stadium. Tom Silverstein uncovered the backers for a long time for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel joins us courtesy Of the murder of my guest line. Tom. What I'd really like to talk about is not this game. But there's a kind of peace up, talked about nine major clashes between the Packers and the 40 Niners, and I think that might be more fun to talk about. Probably better than the game keeper. I know and I wish we could that we should do more of that. Obviously, Covert is the is the word of all the time but especially tonight with the 40 Niners and tell us what's going on with the Packers. Well, they've had one positive case and two guys who have been deemed close contact. It is so One is the rookie running back a. J. Dylan. The other is backup running back to maul. Williams and Thea. Other is inside linebacker. Come on, Martin, So it's three guys. You know, pretty pretty regular performers. Jamal Williams is the one that probably hurts the most. Because I don't think Aaron Jones is gonna play. He's got a cast injuries missed the last two games and kind of he's questionable. I have a gut feeling that they're gonna hold him out. So they're really they're down to second year running back who's on the practice squad and then a guy who sort of their gadgets. Receiver was gonna tell you a little bit of running back to that Tyler and the other guy's Dexter Williams. Yeah, we know Tyler. Well from San Jose State, A ce faras. Aaron Jones goes, You know it's a short week, but he hasn't played in a couple of games I would I recall was a couple of weeks ago. He was kind of close to coming back to playing. Did he have a setback and practice our Because now would be the time you know, Minus a J. Gelatin Jamal Williams or you want Erin Jones to be able to play. But if you can't play, he can play. But was he close? A few weeks ago? Did he have a setback? White? Why is he still on the Ah? On the doubtful side. Well, I think They've been really, um, tried to be really cautious with him because he is the key to their offense, and I think they kind of feel like it's a calf injury. And those are things that You know, control from not to bad to worse in a hurry, so I think they've been really cautious about putting him back now. They didn't really have a chance to practice this week. Their facility was closed on Monday, and they had walked rooms the last two days, so I'm not sure if they've got not Really reading where he is and how far he can go. But I thought they were hyperactive were aiming for this game for him. But just Uh, feedback and the sense I get from floors that you know, they're really thinking about holding them out. Thomas Silverstein covers the Packers and he's joining this courtesy. The human guests I'm here on these four cedars, we get you ready for the 40. Niners and the Packers on Thursday night Football. Aaron Rodgers. Maybe outside of that bucks game where they're lying, Just gonna overwhelm them. His plane, maybe. Well, one of the best seasons of his career. What what's been the key so far for him? Having a lot of game. I think that's been so so important for him. Everything they do is similar to the 40 Niners. They love play action and you gotta have a run game in orderto, Um, execute play action, and Aaron Rodgers is best when he's got options when he can play. It's not forced to throw the ball when it's more about at the choice. And so when he can when he can, um Go up to the line of scrimmage and have a legitimate chance to run the ball. You know, knowing that he could get a first down or or he could spread the ball around to his back. Um He's a better player, but you take that running game away from him, and he's not nearly as good. Yeah, With all the injuries and the running back room going onto Tyler, Ervin and Dexter Williams will she have a kind of running game They will have, but you know, when you go back to last year and the two games the 40 Niners beat them in week. 12 on Sunday night, obviously time in the NFC championship game, the story of the game. Was the inability of Bachtiar Ian Bulaga. They had They had some injuries and tackle But you know, Nick Bosa just wrecked the game. There's just no other way around it In the past, Russia's just so Ah, you know, prominent could see it in Aaron's eyes that they couldn't get it block Now. The 40 Niners don't have those guys. They don't have Nick and they don't have D and they don't have Solomon Thomas and a few others. So what? My question is, is David back D R E Gotta play tonight. He's missed two in a row with a chest and I think that creates some dominoes where Billy Turner goes over the left tackle Rick Wagoner starts at right tackle. They're not nearly as good. Is when they have the all pro Bachtiar e. So is he gonna fly tonight? Yeah, my senses he is, You know, they didn't. Actually I've been shocked that Billy Turner has been as good as he has left tackle. He's you know, they tried to play him a guard last year, and it was a little bit of a Not. It proved to not be his best spot. So then they moved him to right tackle and then he's had to play left tackle. But they are a better team. When Turner's at right tackle on Bachtiar is that left tackle? And you know the game against Tampa. They just they just were overrun. They just I haven't seen a defense like that this year, and I think they were. I don't know if they were just caught by surprise or what, but the speed of that defense really affected him so We are the 40 Niners have done such a good job of pressuring Rogers. I mean, like you said, And they've just the front floor has been the difference. You know that in the two inside linebackers, you know a Warden Warner and And Green law has just been Dominant against them, So I think I think they're still going to be some issues with protection tonight, and that's that's something to watch. I don't Packers are goingto Be able to just run all over the 40 Niners. You know, Tom, speaking of Ah, running all over, Obviously last year in the NFC championship game, 285 yards on 42 carries six a two shot. The Packers given up about 47, and then, as Faras told the yard's about the middle of the pack as Faras the run defense. Obviously, the 40 Niners are not gonna have most of their anybody who touched the ball in that game. But how's the Packers? Run defense? Hold up to you? Moz. Funny..

"Well Urban is much more of a scatback type. He's not big they run like five streams. He's more of a returned man. Meanwhile Dexter Williams. He's more of your traditional running back but schneidman has said he has struggled to catch the football and practice and on top of that he blew a block that led to a block punked last week. So they don't trust him in pass-pro or as a receiver. So they've never really hurting there at the position again, if this game stays as is they might not be dead. The play Aaron Jones, but they also might not have a choice but to play Aaron Jones. So if I had to pick one of these guys presuming Jones doesn't play my preference would be for urban. Got it. Okay. Keep an eye on the status of that one was hard as well. By the way, Matt LaFleur said this week. He thinks was artist close to coming back from his core muscle injury. Oh, okay interesting. Very interesting. All right, let's get to some of this Sunday 1:00 games will start with the Giant and George Washington. You know, I am not sure his fantasy worthy Joe. I think Wayne gallman looks decent. Yeah computer has you know, he's one of those guys the Goldman when he came out of college, I as a prospect I was like, you know, he's not flashy but he does all he does all the things that he does well or pretty obvious he runs hard he pass protects and he catches the football. Those are the things he does. Well so he can get he can get it done a little bit there and and frankly, I mean, I don't know what maybe they go back to Devonte Freeman if Devonta Freeman's available, but I consider gallman kind of a dog. when Darby to if Devonta Freeman doesn't go anything else for the Giants or else Washington Sterling Shepard has kind of taken over in my mind. The number one fantasy receiver here off over Darius Slayton Daniel Jones has I think at times he's looked real. He's almost like Carson Wentz right now, you know you watch the plays where he doesn't make a completely boneheaded turn over. Okay, this guy looks pretty good. And then the other plays it looks like he's actively trying to turn the football over. So Daniel Jones is not not really a fantasy option right now. Washington's defense is pretty good though on the back end they are exploitable. I think throwing Shepherds a wide receiver three and given the state of the tight end position, even though he hasn't produced Big Numbers Evan engram I think is like second in in tight end targets. He's probably thought you just have to have in your lineup at this stage moving on Washington coming off of the body. I didn't do anything at the trade deadline, you know, it's weird cuz they've got McClure. Logan Thomas Antonio Gibson, I mean they've got some guys that are worth at least talking about. Yeah, they do Antonio Gibson is an rb2 all the way. He's got some physicality to them. I think that's something you expected from a guy who was a converted wide receiver, but he absolutely has some physicality to him. So Antonio Gibson's him a running back to Kyle Allen probably not on the streaming radar Terry McCormick catch a shadow from James Bradberry in this game. That's a problem for him. And again, like I said Logan Thomas coming off by he's there kind of their de facto. Number two receiver here Rob Gronkowski scored a touchdown against the Giants and not to compare Logan Thomas to Rob Gronkowski, but I think that Logan Thomas is somebody who you can plug and play use for DFS. I think he's going to be somebody who could get seven eight targets from from Los Alamos you.

"Aaron jones apparently some pessimism. They're playing thursday at san francisco. Dave i wanna green bay running back to start this week. Who am i taking. You will probably take tyler ervin to be that running back but you should have next to no expectations for him. Or for dexter williams who will be the other running back that figures to get work. Will you should count on his aaron rodgers throwing a lot and maybe even running himself a little bit. I do not have faith on in tyler ervin he. He's more receiver than running back and last week he dropped two passes on consecutive place. It's not great great either and they've both inexperienced and they're both probably below the average the line of average running backs. I guess i should say that there. Below average running backs this this is going to be a tough spot for the packers. That's a funny way of calling someone below average right these below the the light of the mendoza line and so i. We don't have that type of line in fantasy. I'm we could probably come up with a player at some point during the show and we can start putting running backs. Above and below that line yeah. Urban williams are below that line tampa bay running backs. Ronald jones could be that. Who wants to start him against the saints right. I'll take him over an or williams at this point. How about you. I'm in the same boat. I think urban probably catches four passes but he may drop two of them. Only get four targets and roger says. I'm not throwing any running backs. His game and dexter williams could fall into the end zone. Dexter williams could play ten snaps. If rodgers like the way it's going he could throw sixty five times on thursday night. So i'm not excited about either but npr. I'll go urban. That's probably the better way to go and obviously both forty niners running back ahead of the packers running backs. Yeah and map read ahead of them. Oh yeah for sure. It is interesting. Breed is interesting..

This is where you think you know, you've got a great coaching staff in San Francisco, offensive minded Out LaFleur. Obviously an offensive minded guys.

"Tell me you had me laughing earlier in the show. We're talking about the Niners. A laundry list of problems slash injuries. But you said, impair phrasing. Watch. They mess around and beat the Packers this upcoming first at night Because I was thinking the exact same thing. I haven't had a chance to look. And and really dive into the Packers Vikings game, but I got the cliff notes. Cook hit him for a lot of yards on the ground. Green Bay couldn't do anything about Minnesota's rushing and if the Niners with Mullins and I know that's you know, That Possibly works out in Green based favorite have the backup quarterback in there, and you don't have Wilson. You don't have Raheem Mostert put the Niners ground game obviously, is the fish that they lead with most often. I mean, it's not implausible that they could really do things on the ground and Give the Packers a scare or just out right? Yeah, they're not bereft of talent. I mean, they'd still have talent on this team. It's just Can you do it consistently that that's the question Now I still think they can do it occasionally. And this would be a perfect spot with everyone saying, Okay, that's it. It's over. Okay missing and that's it. It's over. I can't imagine the only one and them kind of rising up and plan a really good game. I think the Packers will be in an interesting situation because Data's got beat at home by the Vikings. Yet they'll come out here and see no Garoppolo know, kiddo and the team that looks like it's going to run direction and who knows if they'll be A CZ properly motivated is you would think they would be, But sometimes it doesn't work that way. So this is one that I think is going to be interesting, But they're underdogs for a reason. Actually thought they'd be a little bit more of an underdog. I think they're minus 2.5. Minus three right around that. Really? Yeah. I thought they'd be around 4 4.5, but we'll see. Word ends up. Yeah, the betters take the take the line. But, yeah, I mean, it's took a guy's eye can play. I mean, they still have dudes. A comm play. I mean, you can play Mullins is a capable Back up. They got some guys on the offensive line that air good to get some guys in the defense that are good, so I don't know that they'll put it together consistently, but they're not a team. I just can't imagine their teams in to come out and start to get steamrolled. They're not that they're not that bad. And they've had too much success here to dis roll over and not play, so I'd seem to murder if Mort is right and and they're going to add, you know, there's going to be An extra playoff team and you're talking about bad them. They'll make it eventually. Yeah. I mean, if you really mean that they would be a play off team. They would be a play off team if more more told us is wines that being the case and that is he was saying the contingency resolution if the games were lost due to the cove in 19 that there might be a 16 team playoff with With a, you know, four division winners and four wild cards in each conference, So you got eight in each conference. They're not eight teams in the NFL. They're going to be better than the 40 Niners. This year, in my opinion, even with all their injuries by the way Thursday night You know, I mentioned before the Packers held all their meetings today, virtually because a J. Dylan they're running back Rookie at NBC tested positive for covert 19. What's coming down right now in rapid port on Twitter says that Jamal Williams He is considered a close contact to a J. Dylan and he's in danger of missing the game. He was told not to practice today. He's up in the air for Thursday night. Aaron Jones is already out with the calf injury and he may not be ready to return. So They may not have Aaron Jones or Jamal Williams or a G. Dylan of their top three running backs. And in that case, they're saying they might lean on Tyler Ervin. Or get him. Dexter Williams, who's on the practice squad. So you know Green Bay is not Nick's not exactly rolling in rumble in either. No, not at all. And let me say this. If that game I hope the games played, But you never know what the situation could be. If that we'll see in the next 24 hours on what kind of outbreak they're dealing with. I mean, it had to be a serious outbreak for the game not to be played. I mean, we've seen the NFL, they'll move him. But they want out right canceling on and postponing them is almost a last ditch. If not the last resort for the NFL. Say this in terms of the Niners going forward and people going. Wait a minute. Expanding the playoffs due to you know what we heard from Ortho contingency plan for the competition Committee or whatever. It doesn't even make sense for the Niners to try to make the playoffs. Should they tank they need to tank. That's the smart strategy. It's never going to happen. Hey, And if you're still lives, don't tank it. Well, it's not the player Stone. Maybe exactly particularly thankyou. There's way too much talent. Onus teams Tommy mentioned as we can all see with our own two eyes and the players aren't a part of the tank plant because These guys are basically one year contract guys, So they're trying to put their best foot forward always. And if you say all right, I will help ease this team out by trying to be a part of this. This Ah Take job. You might not be there on the team next year, so it's not in a players is that in the player's mentality, or at least it shouldn't be. And it's not an employer's best interest to be a part of a team wide. Tank job. There might be some people in the organization that wanted It's more than likely never going to be a player and to get a player or a group of players to go along with. Hey, let's suck this year because we might get a better draft pick for next year. You're not going to get players to do that. It's just simply not how it works. So that idea Tank for better draft pick. Forget about the playoffs is not worth it. You're doing more harm than good if you try to and do win football games You could just forget that it's never going to be a part of the deal. Yeah, It's not just football players do not tank in any sport. They don't doesn't happen now. They could set you up. Never fails going to chance to win. Yeah, they could not play their best players or they can play players. I won't give you the best chance to win more minutes. But they will never. Players will never go out there and not play their best and try to win basketball games. Baseball games hockey for whatever sport that the league players or why you don't make it to that level and then say All right, let's go ahead and throw this game, though it doesn't matter how long your contract is. It's a no, No, you just play. You play now. The front office. Khun say, we're going to sit these guys. And that could give you a for less chance of winning, and that's tanking. But yeah, players don't do it..

"Now, I'm starting to wonder if you know with such a little buzz around these guys my and with Tyler Murray being in this draft might we just have three quarterbacks taken in round one or potentially a fourth maybe going at the end of the round to a team that trades up or dare I say at the chargers are New England Patriots teams that may maybe in position to drop their quarterback of the future. Not knowing exactly what that future's going to begin. Because Tom Brady Philip rivers Potter, still planning on extremely high level, Alex last week listening to your work in in terms of listening to the interview with a bunch of the players was there anyone anybody that kind of stuck out. You know, a guy that kind of really impressed you whether it's his interview skills or just a guy that for the first time menial. Wow. I gotta draft this kit. Oh, man. You know? That's that's a danger. Right. Fall in love with the interview, you know, and you know, listen, I mean kid can talk themselves out of something. You know what I mean? But I mean, but these young men are trained. I'll be honest. They look at you. Listen, Dexter Williams. You like to know that he's in a good place in his life right now. The kid from Notre Dame served a four-game suspension last year on a marijuana related thing. And then he comes back and he's gangbusters Notre Dame twelve touchdowns. You know, he's his mom has a terminal disease and she's living with him and you'll pull for people like the you know, what I mean? So that that young man, you feel for, you know, Eric McCoy center from Texas A and M while, you know, you're talking about a combination of having a great centers body, if you know what I mean, very compact and squat former shoplift guy back in high school, and and you know, he and and his abilities in a he said that his vision grew during his time, Texas, A and M as calling out protections and things this is a plug and play guy. If your team needs a center, he's someone that that is really going to impress you as well. You know, so, but you know, sometimes it's interesting though, like how? You know, folks handle a crowd like Ryan Mallett. You could just sorta tell that this young man might have a real hard time in the NFL getting defensive during an NFL scouting. Combine interview in front of people. You know, Cam Newton isn't the best with the media though. And he went ahead and ended up having a has had a great NFL career. So I don't like to read into too much, but you find some young men around the way that you really begin to pull for and I gotta tell you one of my interviewed on the phone Corey Valentine of Washburn. Oh my God. I mean, you talk about a guy who played it at a small division to school largest crowd. He's ever played in front of his fifteen thousand people as mom had to convince him to stay in college. Because he wanted to quit. He was living a bunk bed that was part of his his dorm life, you know, play division to football. But you know, what the the guy was able to overcome all that. He's the best small school corner and football. I don't think he gets passed a to. I don't think it gets passed round to to be quite honest with you this man has huge upside. And you talk to them for about two minutes, and you figure out not only does it together on the field. He's got it together. Off as well. He's alex. Marv is siriusxm NFL radio. Joining us here on the rich Eisen show. Kirk Morrison filling in for rich.

I believe warm enough for the forty wh what's going to happen to Dexter Lawrence. How what are they saying about that injury? Is that going to hurt him or help him right before he goes for that pro?.

"That's an inside joke at no get. So sorry. But but no, it just was just a fun week. So I agree with you Craig just the film room. Probably takes the cake. Yeah. I mean, I guess I'm a slightly different point of view. But still saying it's watching film with everybody. But I really like getting to go into the actual film that the recent senior bowl sets up for everybody just getting to sit down at the table. You get a little clicker. You get rewind stuff talk about it a little bit while you're going through it. And like we said earlier we watch six hours of tape one day two different sessions. And I don't think that we had any idea. Either time we were in there for three hours H just great to kick us out. They had to come by tell everybody time to go. And when you're in to two tables down there scouts for teams watching the exact same film. We are they're talking to other people they joined with about and you get a pick up little stuff that you wouldn't think about, but even more that to watch the other people just have this conversation about it. It's a lot of fun. Like, I would have a blast by myself when I do at home all the time, but it's so much better to sit out the group of people watching film talk about it. I didn't even I guess one other thing to we kind of luted to it earlier little jokes like the thunder, Joe and Andy's ability and patching or by personal favorites. Right. Quilt arm stud running back at a temple any running. Back religious gets under can't skin. They. He was a fan of any of them. So like Dexter Williams for like eight touchdowns this weekend was fantastic. Single one to be insulin. Every time because you can't track running backs drag anybody to ground behind the lens. Expeditious all scores. All these touchdowns. Finally this third day of practice Germain Pratt Shays down sixty ords downfield five yards out of bounds. Throws him to the ground. Just because he runs them and it wasn't malicious. But he chased down funny for the team practice today. Just came out the top in speeds for everybody Pratt had the highest speed of the day. And I guarantee you it was chasing down Dexter Williams. Trying to finish off a run this little inside jokes like that. It just made this week so much more fun and pass lot of time. So that was just for me Phil watching inside jokes with these other fellow dirt over here. It was the filming for me. Obviously, the usually my thing. But the only thing I really enjoyed about this. Who's going out and keen to interview prospects for a couple minutes seeing some of these guys in this setting getting an ideal? What kind make of the they have some guys came off extremely poorly. Some guys say their names that would you know, that would be that it'd be, but I I really enjoy getting to know rock sydell Amani or warrior Valentine, look than I thought, you know, just Lucy guy like him comes through here. Here. But overall, I that was a really cool experience. Getting the talks these guys face-to-face, we've got some soundbites. I'm sure we're to use over time. And that'll that'll be pretty that's gonna do it for the final senior bowl edition Arrowhead pride laboratory draft season is upon us. Folks, we are going by. Really, really? Let me down.

"He could cement himself in the top twenty five picks this draft. I do think that he can really really help himself this week. If he doesn't have a good week. Maybe we'll see. But I think if you comes down here and impresses not just on the field. Because remember it's not just about the field stuff here. It's also about the meetings at night, you know, if he can go and impress teams at night one on one setting up on the board in meetings. I think that that will really really help his cause. That's a good point friend people don't realize that part of it the meetings. I mean, I know this morning you have what the way in. So they haven't they haven't actually practice yet. Is that true? Correct. Yeah. So we've got way this morning seven thirty AM local time right after that we've got media day. So we'll get a chance to talk with some of these guys media standpoint. And then the first practice, I believe is at one thirty local time. So I'm excited to hit to kind of get to know these guys a little bit hopefully talked to a bunch of media day. But really the big thing to Ross I should mention talking about the meetings. You're going to see a lot of reports over the next few days of up so-and-so team met with this player that player this player just know that that your favorite team out there met with every player here because that's exactly what's going to happen. And if they don't talk to them year, they've either already spent a lot of work talking to them before. Or they're going to spend a lot of time talking to him in. Combine that's every team is going to talk with every guy. That's just the nature of this. So I know there's going to be a lot of ideas to try and grab content out of all. Well, you know, this guy this team talked with player x y and z every every team's gonna talk with every player. That makes sense. What about for the south quarterbacks Tyree? Jackson from buffalo will Greer West Virginia Gardner Minzhu was Oooo and Jarret stidham from Auburn. I think when you look at these guys are really it comes down to the fact that they've got three guys that have starting traits in Jackson, Greer and stood them. But I think all three of them are more developmental players. You're talking about a little bit more time putting the oven in terms of trying to get them ready to play in the NFL. I think for I for a variety of different reasons for all three to me. I think Jackson probably has the least amount of distance to go in my mind. I mean, he's got the physical tools the arm strength. Certainly there is a big kid. He's athlete, but certainly has a long way to go from the mental side of the game. I'd like to see him do a little bit a little bit better in terms of working under pressure. Not a lot of examples of him working in a muddy pocket. We're not going to see much that this week. Unfortunately, not until the game. But he's got. Starting tools for sure. Taking a look at the running backs on the north side, Dexter Williams Koran Higdon Toni Ballard and Alec Ingold. Yeah. And this this running back group overall took a little bit of a hit in the last ten days or so with guys pulled out injury. You know, LJ Scott for Michigan state's not here miles Gaskin from Washington's not here, they lost a couple of names so couple late additions, but Dexter waves to me has the highest upside of any running back here. He's a big play back from Notre Dame oleo one year starter early only stand started the handful against because he started the year with a four-game suspension. But I like his patients to the whole he's got the speed to get through the whole the big things. I think with him. He's going to have to prove himself on third down, which he can do this week because they will put him in situations to catch the ball out of the backfield and show up past protection. So it with a really good week this week, I think Dexter Williams could kind of put himself potentially into that day to range. And I I really think that's possibility even with all the underclass from running backs if you can have a big week this week prove himself on third down proof..

"Into high. Now gives me more ready to go give her really important about that is I one I saw that. I was I was actually very much impressed. You know, it's funny because well, thanks. Yeah. We're good. Let's so let's talk about this game. They were just talking about Dexter Williams. Dexter Lawrence being out of this game. Obviously that was a key. We talked about last week. I thought it would make an impact, but Mike you've really been looking at the other side the other way the defensive line of Alabama against the offensive line of Clemson. And why that's such a key matchup in this. What stands out to you? Yeah. I think what you saw from Clemson against Notre Dame. The one thing the final score, obviously is going to show. You is that people said Clemson dominate this game. If you look up front one area, they didn't was clemson's offensive line versus Notre Dame's defensive line and particularly in the middle of clemson's offense of line. And so when you think of that now in Alabama side, you think Quentin Williams probably the best player in college football the best lineman in college football number ninety two in the middle for Alabama. And what he did such a great job of against Oklahoma was getting penetration right up the middle. That's really been his MO. He's a guy that's gonna knife upfield and cause problems in your offense. So I think especially on passing downs. You've got a young quarterback. And what do we always say pressure on a quarterback? Space is a nightmare. But especially a guy who now that Alabama doesn't have to worry about it being Cuyler Murray breaking contained and running around, and it's just Trevor Lawrence who still athletic enough, but not the same set of gifts. I think that really becomes an area where if you're going to have to figure out creative ways to try and mitigate that rush, and they weren't able to do it Notre Dame when they were able to get home last week was effective. And I think Alabama can hold up better on the back end against clemson's receivers that Notre Dame was able to well, one of the keys as much as you. And I have mentioned that look this isn't more spread out more points where we're seeing a more dynamic offense. And we want to talk about Trevor Lawrence NTN and the running game for Clemson is huge key to how they actually run their offense. I'm not sure that it's going to be able to get anywhere. They're not going to be able to get a lot going running the football. And if they can't get things going running the football. It puts you in a really bad spot with a true freshman quarterback. That's out there trying to make something happen. I mean, that's the uneasy part of the matchup. But that's the part that Clemson feels a lot better about after. For the Notre Dame game. Because that was another thing. Notre Dame's defense did a fairly good job stuffing early in that game before the score got out of hand you break that late big run. And it was Trevor Lawrence who was putting the ball all over the place was giving their receivers chances to make big plays down the field. They won that game on the back of big plays and deep plays in the middle of the field and the passing game. Can they manufacture that again can Trevor Lawrence on another big stage with this opportunity? Make those big plays in big time throws under a bit of duress because he's going to be pressured that much I can pretty much after seeing the semi final game guarantee for him. So things we learned from the Notre Dame game as you look back on it. Because the guys were mentioned in earlier what Dexter Lawrence being out, man. I expected that was going to have a huge impact given Notre Dame's ability to run the ball. And given the fact that Clemson came in with the best stat line in the country when it comes to shutting down the run they were still able to sort of impose their will, do you think they can have that same sustained level of success against Alabama? One guy short. This to me is the deciding match up of the game because clemson's defensive line overwhelming. Strength sacked the quarterback an unbelievable rate this season and Dexter Lawrence. Wasn't really that guy necessarily big body. Great in the middle for the run great for depth. And all these things it Christian Wilkins is the guy that I really think has to have a monster game clown Farrell. Their defensive end was the best player on the field in that semifinal game against Notre Dame. I thought a lot of instances listen,.

"Me from the Marty Smith podcast on sportscenter with Kibo Keith Olbermann last night talking about how Clemson to just without one of their star defensive lineman going into the biggest game of the season. Next to Lawrence is absence from clemson's defensive lineup in the national championship is substantial from a depth and talent perspective. This guy's a consensus. First team all American three hundred forty pounds extremely agile a disruptive force for that great Clemson line. But this is not a surprise clemson's prepared as if they wouldn't have Lawrence for the better part of two weeks. Now, his backup Albert Huggins. Whom they call a co starter proved to be a worthy backup in the Cotton Bowl without Lawrence Clinton's defense, held Notre Dame's great running back. Dexter Williams to have his average output both in yards per carry. And in total rushing yards. Dexter Lawrence being out is still a huge blow. This is a guy that when you talk about continuity and depth, which are other worldly important in any sport. But especially in college football, we see depth and quality depth will out time and time again when you get to this portion of the season because you are at the end of a year full of attrition. You are at the end of a year that is an absolute grind of a season. And then you get that forty day or so layoff before the semi final order to try and retool that in the best teams are the ones like Alabama and Clemson that have demonstrated extrordinary depth throughout this. Now, it is a match up where it's the fourth time in the college football playoff. We've seen these teams matchup, obviously, the trio of national championship meet ups the one semifinal match up from a year ago. It's something that we become all all too accustomed to. But it got I think the ultimate facelift in this year, which is at the quarterback spot. Right. Like, you can you could keep cycling Alabama running backs through different guys in that stable all these freak test tube baby running back that looked like they were constructed in the same lab. You can throw as many hunter Renfro on the other side for Clemson. Why all the jokes the other day from our own. Randy Scott here on ESPN about just how long hunter end froze managed to stay in a Clemson uniform. He's gonna find a way back next year. We already know it's you can book that one. But with this team, you got a facelift at quarterback for both of these teams and for Alabama. We know it has been centered around to a ton of I lo and ever since that midseason change for Clemson. This is the season long version from Daboh Swinney of what we saw from Nick Sabin and the national title game last year the gumption to make a switch of the most important position on the field. When everything is. Is going well in this case for Daboh at least in the national championship. Jalen hurts had been struggling in the first half. There was a lack of production. And there had been this growing surge to try and get to on the field for them for so long Kelly. Bryant was playing well, but when given the opportunity Trevor Lawrence played better, and they said are ceiling is trying to beat Alabama. And that to a guy that they have over there running that offense in a way, we've never seen from that team before and Trevor Lawrence has responded, and for a lot of people the biggest response came in the biggest stage so far his performance against Notre Dame in the way, they took advantage of certain things with stellar. And they believe he's enough. Now, the other major factor, and that is the last time we saw someone give Alabama a truly good game. Was that SEC title game? We're two was banged up. So for more on that ankle to a tongue of I lo- that surgically repaired high ankle sprain. Allison Williams are ESPN reporter join Keith Olbermann on sportscenter last night putting Alabama's head athletic trainer.

It's funny. I watched a little bit of Clemson this morning. And he continued to stand out was Isaiah Simmons a converted safety turn into a linebacker number eleven showed up in a lot of different ways in that game. So Isaiah Simmons is a guy that I've added now to my watchlist based off of this game. I was really impressed with them. And then the other side, I mean Notre Dame, you know, they just got overcome with injuries. And, you know, Julian love the talented corner who a lot of people feel will declare for this draft. He was hurt for most of this game. Khalid Korean the talented pass rusher. Aloha Gilman the transfer safety from navy who did come back and and had a forced fumble late in the game.
