"I still wouldn't value them as i did going into the season as top ten receivers. Aj brown a borderline top-five guy. The difference is is that if you're trying to sell. Aj brown before his game. He's coming off a bad game. Titans looked like poop. So you're not gonna get probably as good of a player back. You're trying to sell maclaurin after his game last night. My gosh staff the perfect scenario right. If you're trying to you know. Get rid of a player for upgrade. So if i'm trying to trade eight brown right now. I'm probably looking at antonio gibson. I'm probably looking at Najji harrison probably looking at guys. That had a little bit of a struggle and one that drafted probably a little bit ahead of them. If i if. I'm really trying to see if i can get somebody of of similar values but that look great. I'd probably go. Joe mixing fancy manager and say can. Can we make a deal that way. But those are the running backs you know the guys that we had ranked Anywhere from six to fifty six to twelve david. Montgomery now those guys okay. I'm gonna say something now and everybody. You can clip it and make fun of me in two years. I am pretty happy if i drafted diani brown in a dynasty league. Think he's going to be good player. I'm totally agree with you This was a one peepers goes better than guys. Which is the list that he puts together players that are not going to get drafted high. That he thinks are better than their draft stock and You know i think A lot of us were hopeful that when curtis samuel went down that he would be the one that stepped up. Really's been adam humphreys a little bit more But the kids got a big time blaming. Bill he does and you know he's he's gonna be. I think i'm trying to think of like a comparison. You know maybe two years from now. darnall mooney. You know how we're talking about him. You know guy that was a fifth round pick. yeah. I don't know it was weird because brown if you if you call the of the draft. There was buzz that he was going to be a first round. Pick that obviously did not happen but People really liked him. He was kind of like adjuvants williams. Some people Same school all but some people thought he was that good and he start three. Npr from tyler maclaurin. I'd start him deontay. Johnson corey davis antonio brown and sterling shepherd. Jesus now i'm sorry we. We're never really going to answer these before thursday night unless you send them early early in the week. So let's take Terry mcauliffe and shepherd out of the equation are your favorites. Deontay corey davis or antonio brown not the in antonio all right. This is from two inch titan..

"Timing routes passing concepts to either create traffic for the defense or work dies loose and use that to really get the ball out of the quarterback hands quickly and safely yet. That is what they want to do. Really use the passing game is more of an extension of their running game and running ball. Antonio gibson is a solid running back. He's not big but he's quick. He's got really good vision. Really good contacts balanced tough to get on the ground like you have to make a concerted effort to tackle him. Otherwise he is going to squeak through and pick up two or three yards that he really shouldn't and Say jd mackenzie again another quick undersized but quick running back really dangerous receiver out of the backfield and gibson is. They're belco. I mean this guy had over twenty carries in this game. He did fumble the football twice which was devastating in led to the chargers winning this game essentially because washington ended up forcing a turnover late in the game and then on the very first play gibson. Put the ball on the ground Allowed the chargers to maintain their twenty sixteen lead a little scared of antonio gibson from the sense that he he's about two hundred twenty pounds plus he's a fit kit and these difficult to bring down. He's a dual threat. That you can definitely can definitely be used out of the backfield even know jd. Mckissick is their primary receiving back but last week gibson had five targets. Mckissick had one. So they're going to use gibson in that in that role as well as for logan thomas interior maclaurin tire maclaurin can be effectiveness. Shore the intermediate and the e portions of the ball. That he caught from taylor heineke where he was tracking in his head was parallel to the ground was just incredible and i am a little bit concerned about the match. Up of these safeties against logan. Thomas converted quarterback turned himself into one of the better tight ends in the national football league. Incredibly big body type of guy. I think it'd be really really annoying in quick game. Which is something. The giants struggled when they lined up at man coverage last week's the giants continue to want to Attempt to play man coverage than. I think there could be mismatches. Exploited with these running backs against the giants linebackers with logan thomas against the safeties. I think bradberry could matchup against mclaren but mclaren indefinitely best bradberry man coverage because we saw last week bradberry was not the best nine believe bradberry has always been more of his own corner than a man corner although he can play man coverage for terry maclaurin the very very good receiver that cannot be slept on even though it is taylor heineke Ball just one more guy. I want to draw attention to is the rookie out of north carolina. That diani brown he. His guy kinda caught my during the draft process. He's not big six foot one eighty five. He's not fast four five but over his last two seasons at north carolina. He averaged twenty yards a catch. He i think he's good. Off the line of scrimmage has got quick feet solid release and he's good at Working himself open down the field. He didn't do a whole lot against the chargers but they did look at him a fair bit so i think he could be a guy to keep your eye on if they have to look off of terry maclaurin yet. I would take dorie jackson in a match up with the brown but if you start to see the ball go his way. Don't be too surprised if he makes a player too. So i think the the one thing that we can highlight from all the stuff that you guys laid out here that they do have some underrated weapons and it's kinda like you know any any week where we can just assume that the giants defensive game plan is going to be effective but if they're not prepared for some of these secondary options they could potentially gash them if they even if they do an effective job of slowing down terry maclaurin. Any of other guys could be open and available for big gains. We've seen antonio gibson have some big games against the giants last season when he was a rookie and if he to be successful. It's going to be partially depending on if the actually holds onto the football and like what he did in week one. But you mentioned. Also nick the the importance of giving logan thomas the ineffectiveness of covering tight ends in week. One was very apparent and that is something that needs to be corrected on a short week. They're going to need to be prepared to go against logan. Thomas who we know is a fantastic athlete and for whatever reason athletic tight ends tend to be a struggling issue for this giant secondary. Last bit offensively before we transition to the defense this office of line. I think is. It's tough to really figure out. How consistent that. They are because a chase their center very strong so far. He's looked really good. Since taking over that spot he was one of the guys that was tied for pass. Rush win rate in week one with nick gates and some other notable names. But then you've got former john eric flowers. You've got charles leno. they drafted sam cosmi. I feel like overall. This group has some quality players but they're fairly inconsistent. This might be a good week for the defensive line to really establish the line of scrimmage and maybe bottle up the run game because they have some mismatches on that offense and defensive line. That's what i'm hoping happens to be honest because leonard. Like if you watch the game against the broncos extra lawrence was being held a solid amount. And i'm not complaining about. They're not being called holding happens. But i saw lawrence pushing the pocket and flushing teddy bridgewater out. Bridgewater was good on the run. Extemporised clays and leonard williams. I mean he. He was tallied for six pressures. It didn't jump off the screen..

"Great ronald jones who fumbled and gave the ball the other team and now bruce arians is saying that he's going to start in two so we'll see how that goes yeah. We got a good montage of evan. Talking shit about ronald jones on podcast from about a month ago. That was good all right last. Nfc team watching football team. Unfortunately i think they were gonna win the game but then ryan fitzpatrick goes down with a hip issue. He's gonna miss a big chunk of time. Taylor heinecke is in tell people a little bit about terror. We have some tape. We have bunch of tape on taylor. He's nfl stars. Before i had that playoff start against tampa last and actually played really really. Well what do you say about heineke going forward. How relates to maclaurin logan and all these guys and he can run. He's scrambler in that playoff game. You know he fed cam sims tim. Sims had over one hundred yards in that playoff. Game taylor heineke He's now made three appearances for the twenty twenty and twenty twenty one. I washington football team his why. Pa is like is over seven I mean he's a he's a capable backup. And so i i think that terror maclaurin i think that they should be downgraded a little bit but i think that they can still stay afloat. I think he's good enough. To keep you know. Logan thomas in the top fifteen top twelve tight end range and mkhori as more like a wide receiver to three as opposed to the potential wide receiver. One that we drafted him as diani brown played a time. I mean he was. Yeah clear number. Two receiver for washington and. I know he didn't do anything. But i mean he's he's going to be out there a lot. He significantly out snapped adam home fruits. Oh yeah cam simply ran one route in the game. Yami was out there on every single snap last thing. I'll say about washington football team as expected yet gibson lawson passed on you jedi kisses but fifty five please. Washington ran into and keeps in touch on twenty three of them. Like when he's out there he is getting fed in both the run and the pass game. So it's still really optimistic on antonio gibson are we still all on each. Nfc team will be back on the next episode with the afc team by team. Podcast for pre shoot for evan. I'm adam good luck everybody..

"Me. That was a good job. fox assuming fox's airing the game. They should just play the benny hill music. Whenever the lions are on the field and it's a shame because that interior is so good. And i think the going to be so bad in week one. I do games. Laugh what you want. Let's go chargers. Football team okay. Very simple the charges are gonna lose an nfl. Media's gonna panic come on. Everybody chargers hype through the roof. Brandon staley defensive savant. Joe lombardi round to justine herbert. The mvp darkhorse o. J.'s back be sick. Washington has a really really good defense. They're going to be able to to stymie a second year quarterback being able to lock up even good receivers of the chargers have and then that ryan fitzpatrick led offense. I think is just going to be jumped. Bali enough right. Diani brown terry mclaren where to take our quick vertical shots that they're gonna be able to beat some teams is right now pick them. I think washington wins the game and come on. If the chargers star owed one against the washington football team the amount of backtracking and just terror induced take escapism. Beautiful isolated charges be good. But what if they lose at everybody panics. It's a likely shot that they do lose. Honestly when you have the lonsdale banged up. They're probably going to end up. Starting a backup right. Tackle you look awesome. Equis out the game Presumably at this point hasn't practiced all week. So i mean like you said washington. Good like i won't be shocked at all if the charges ended the blues. This especially on the road like it's a good defense. You had me until ryan fitzpatrick now. Steve is on. Wow he's he's fun in like small doses and we've gotten a lot of doses fits over there like it's enough enough fitzpatrick. He's run at scores as someone who picked the charges to the playoffs and pick derwin james to win a comeback player. They are defensive player. That you're actually in britain celia too when coach. Your how dare you. Yeah it was okay so the it will be your panic that i'm enjoying when i'm watching the los angeles. You don't even have to watch the game though you could just see that elsewhere. You can just go on twitter. Go on the internet and find that so now. I'm not watching this game bats. Actually that's pretty tightly tied closely to my reason for the last game. Which is ravens raiders on monday night. Which virtually you're all watching ineffable game anyway sake. I don't have to come up with the reason for this. But the ravens week one are. Like unstoppable right. John harbaugh is ten and three against the spread. The rams are currently four point favorites even after the running back injuries Harveson and three against the spread with these two games with lamar. They've won ninety seven to sixteen in a combined. Total score right. They beat up on the dolphins. A beat obama browns morris a perfect passer rating in both games. The raiders passing defense by. Dvd was like twenty th last year. The ravens are absolutely one hundred percent going to win this game. I have no doubt in my mind that they win. It don't even care about the injuries which means the espn broadcast which will be extremely oriented on. Jon gruden sideline shots. Because jon gruden used to be on the broadcast is going to get just a core gis fourth quarter shot of jon. Gruden scowling at derek carr. After failed fourth quarter drive they trudge off the field and they lose the game like you know whatever like thirty three to twenty or something like that. And you should watch raiders ravens on monday night just for the opportunity to get that shot of jong rooted and get it up on twitter before anybody else. So you can get the re tweets and likes and the dopamine. That's my reason to watch. Monday night football. I am watching this game. i'm with you. i'm with the. i'd like to see jon gruden squirm. So yes. I would enjoy that and also liked. I think kaylin might be starting running back for the ravens so we all have to watch bryce been no. I think that running game will be like okay. Yeah it's just you never want to enter the season and be what injury away from total panic. And i think that's where they've got to be at this point. Let's say you put. Ben rothlisberger ravens running back with lamar jackson. Still doing to mike. This is too many yards per carry. Does ben rothlisberger. Average with defense is focused on the mark. Is it three point. Is it higher than it. Three point. stop brother. That will give the first. Nfl friday show here on the nfl. Feed we do appreciate you guys.

"We were live on spotify green room yesterday afternoon. And i'm delighted what it was. It was great It's always a good time hanging out chatting austin That name was just in all caps typed in the chat for an hour People want to know what's going to happen. What do they do non-participant on wednesday. It's been revealed that it was a hamstring injury hamstring at the very last moment in time. Are you concerned. Who do you pick up. How you feel about old awesome excellent. Yeah i mean you have to be concerned This is a little bit too early for us to have great insight and great medical knowledge. I have not seen a report that specifies the greater if anything that just popped up right. This was this was Last evening we found out about it. it it. It's possible this could be nothing. He plays sunday in everything. Good but i mean that's just not what usually happens with a hamstring injury It doesn't just disappear in a second If you pull your hamstring you've gotta have rest and so at the very least right now. You need to be targeting. The backups. there is there's two guys there. I do not believe joshua. Kelly as talent So if you are going to be targeting someone. I think you should be targeting Justin jackson agree. I do justin jackson. Yes he has. He's been that guy several times for this team. I get that we have a new coaching staff. And so maybe they have a different take on. Maybe they really liked joshua kelly. But it's hard to imagine the The new regime just throwing out all the tape of justin jackson whose houston kelly does. He's more versatile. Yeah jackson is a good player. He's not better than austin but he's a very competent replacement they have dealt with so many injuries in the backfield over the last couple years and last year I was trying to remember when. I missed all that time and it was. It was a knee hamstring. Issue for him where he missed the five or six games whatever. It was so one of the reasons. I don't have muscles. I know that the that's true. The damage you can't get hurt if you have no muscle. no. I mean you see this. We've seen the flexes. What is dead may never die. Maybe stuff maybe stop flexing everything. Yeah and also we're not starts the week yet and this guy probably couldn't be too obvious but go ahead and fire up your keenan allen Could call good call. Thank you chris. Godwin left off the injury report we said yesterday. I didn't think you know godwin or brown was anything to be concerned about. You had a you know a thursday night. Game clyde edwards 'alerts practicing in full courtesy. Amiel this one is not great pulled out and pulled up during a route. He doesn't feel right. It's been a long time. It's not like curtis samuel was out there two weeks ago three weeks ago. It's been a a long time since we've seen curtis samuel in. We were talking about all. He'll be you know he knows the offense so he can just acclimate. the second. he's healthy is not healthy. Yeah and that's the issue is is it's official. I mean it's done. He is absolutely not held. Is a guy. I was high on. I talked about Just a couple of weeks ago i. I've drafted him everywhere. I've got him in our family. I've got him in a league record. I think i've got them. Oh no i got sniped in the listening loser but the reality is he's had so much time to rest and recover the fact that right when he gets back it is immediately. A problem again says that this is going to be one. He's not i. I think it's could go several weeks. I think this could be something that turns into a core muscle surgery situation He is bodied now in my rankings. And i tried to make trade offers. You know for the hopeful upside. Because you know we're not doctors we don't know maybe he is. Maybe he needs one more week of rest and gets back out there. But i am completely one hundred percent Pessimistic on the outlook of curtis samuel. So logan thomas gets a bomb longer time to end third round rookie. Diani brown i think is worth a speculative add thrown on the back of the bench. Yeah i mean jason's right which. I tend to agree that there's a chance that this lingers for a really long time into surgery when i hear doesn't quite feel right after this amount of time when you start the video like it just happened to be captured him running the route and he pulls up and you can see in his face like this is a man who knows that he's not gonna be playing. He's on a road. yeah just throwing this out there for week. One players that are not on the injury report that may have popped up during the offseason. Daryl henderson justin jefferson tyler lockett. Julio jones aj brown missed practice. But it was just rest. Dj charge marvin jones. Both playing track on smith. Adam trautmann boiling. Yeah adam trautmann was not on the injury. Football day miracle. Do you want to take away your want. Johnson drafted jam i think. Johnson's still worth a speculative ad in deeper leagues. But this is. This is incredible. news fellas. Why didn't know one share this with me earlier. We've been trying to keep it from you. Yeah clearly yet. It's been really Both producers didn't want to let you know. Can i we know how you get in trouble. Means ready to go back and change my my guys. Oh absolutely absolutely yeah. I mean adam him in. I don't think you want to do that. But this that's awesome that's great. I'm not sure traveling wants you to do that already. Overcome one micro right caused injury. One one injury that seems to be healed is hunter henry. He's back so that's interesting with your johnny week one. It's interesting because you know henry last year. Six hundred plus yards at the tight end position very valuable romande. Stevenson's okay as well. Anything new brooks that broke over the last five minutes. Those are all right. You feel free to hop on mike and break in if something happens okay you got it. Be bolt be strong. That was today's news and notes brought to you by sleeper hop over there on the sleeper app..

"I'd like to see jarrett. Patterson on punt returns. I don't know if it's gonna happen. I don't think it will happen He got that opportunity to return kickoffs last week and he returned one thirty seven yards. But can you imagine if he is you know a natural punt returner and he's better than anybody else they have as a punt returner how valuable that would be to be able to put him not only on the team which he's gonna make the team but put him on the wall street week And have him as a kickoff returner and punt returner to go with however else. You're going to use them. I mean that could make certain guys expendable or practice squad able Dax milner de'andre carter etcetera And then danny johnson defensively and it might allow you to keep other players in that leads to this and that is you know. I'm not obsessed with fifty three man roster projections like a lot of people. I don't have any problem with those at are. I love the you know. Deep deep granular detail interest. That you know many of you have I'm watching these roster battles as well. I'm just not going to do a fifty three man projection. Because i really don't have any idea. I mean i know what the position groups of interest are Running back will payton barber. Make the team. Because there's no doubt that gibson mckissick jared patterson or on the team How many receivers are they going to keep. And after the top five of mclaren humphry samuel diani brown and cam sims whose number six whose number seven if there is a seventh d. Count the you know if carter makes it as the kick returner punt returner is gandhi. Golden gonna make it They really liked dax milne. We've heard a lot about him. The secondary will be of interest. Certainly I think troy app. He's gonna make the team. I've been leading Or leaning in that direction for a while. Now I think he's going to make the team. He's too good of his special teams player and he just flashes when he's out there defensively and he gives ron and jack del rio. What they like. Some position flexibility But you know that's something to keep an eye on. certainly. I would imagine of the fifty three spots. Fifty one of them are accounted for. I doubt that any more than one to two positions are on the line in this game they might be. I could be wrong But that's typically the case Whatever happens tomorrow night. Hopefully they're healthy and the result on tuesday at four. Pm when they cut down to fifty three will will be one of the best rosters. They've had in years. Okay up next santana moss right after these words from.

"I now i him. Yeah nuff dead. Maybe something will happen. He'll catch like five balls in the playoffs or something like that. That would be amazing. By the way. Logan thomas i mean speaking of nfc east Tight ends logan. Thomas just absolutely massive roll coming again. He was in on ninety. Six percent of the snaps. Last year was also among the league leaders in tight end leaders and routes personnel fourteen of fourteen snacks with ryan fitzpatrick in the preseason opener. I'm excited about logan thomas again. I know there's more target competition this year. a lot. More target competition this year but also improved quarterback play so i still like logan. Thomas plenty certainly a lot more than dallas gutter blocked in locked in. And you know i. I've loved tyler. Be throughout this. I think that logan thomas at this point belongs above tyler. Higby okay interesting. Speaking of washington zero first team snaps for brown the opener he was behind cam sims and behind adam. Humphreys curtis samuel sat out the game. Not yet think this is like one of those talent will rise situations and he was a rookie and cam. Simms was on the team last year. And so cam sims plays ahead of them. So i'm not too worried about young. Didn't drop very much in the rankings. At all but it's just something to watch. I think will be fine. I don't know if he'll be early in the season though any move for you on diani brown now I do. I would recommend everybody to go. Listen to the platform in episode about pacing and And snap rate and does he touches on the washington football team in there. You know it might not be. It probably won't be a super highly voluminous passing game team But with the the washington defense we're expecting them to be borderline dominant getting the ball. Back your incessantly to the offense. They're just giving you have a lot of opportunities offensively in that could boost their play volume in and of itself So this this washington offense. And i put them in the sneaky. Stacks article was well Re really really interesting. I think and they. They have a lot of playmakers to the extent that. Hey if if somebody goes down in the offense if they're if they're missing curtis him all of a sudden they can jump diane brown in there. I think adam humphreys is bogging. Open the season as the slot. Receiver logan thomas antonio gibson. Jd mckissick is still is so looks. Like he's going to be a big part of the offense but they i mean they've got some playmakers. Yeah i buried. The lead on. Washington here to lead should have been that intentional gibson. The concerns from last year. A- cropping up again in the concerns of courses that they use gibson in the same role they used him in last year aka early downs. Only and jd mckissick gets the past downward. That's what happened in the preseason opener third-down snaps jd. Mckissick three paint and barbara one in tow gibson zero total snaps with ryan. Patrick we're international gibson. Eight because it's five barbara one. I think in gibson is still a fine pick. I still like taking him in the second round. But it's gonna be tough to access a ceiling if all of the hurry up. All the third downs. Go to judy mckissick. So it's scary a little bit for me on antonio gibson he he has to win this past down role. What do you think about until you're gibson now that we've seen his week one season usage. Well his adp. You know talked about this a little bit. Like i have been trying to get him up as high as i could. And i still couldn't get him to his adp Which in an spca draft was like like borderline first round. I mean he's going like pick twelve or thirteen. I could only get them as high as number sixteen so i think that his. Adp almost became irresponsible. I think it'll probably come down a little bit at the same time. He had thirty six receptions last year and only played thirty seven percent of washington's offensive snaps. Now that number. I think is brought up a little bit by alex smith in a bunch of check down artists buying a quarterback kyle allen and that but i mean i i still think is going to be involved in the passing promised. He only played five percent of their third down snaps last year. And it doesn't look like he's necessarily ticketed for a bump based on the first preseason game. Yeah i think it's it's a big concern and again another situation where it's similar c. h. e. has the sky high ceiling. But if he doesn't get the pass down work he's not going to access it so yeah. I think that it's worth giving antonio gibson ceiling outcomes a little bit of a ding. And we've done that in the rankings. Rondell more man. I love rhonda where we've talked about this. Before i think rondo moore was the perfect pick for the fake sharp cliff kingsbury horizontal raid because he takes these bubble screens and quick hitches and horizontal passes that cliff loves to run and instead of throwing them to larry fitzgerald he throws them to rondo more and rondo. More can actually do a ton with it duties explosive. Larry couldn't do anything with it. So what we saw. In this preseason game was rondo. More exclusively in the slot and christian kirk exclusively outside now kendra hopkins. Didn't play in the game so it's not a clean. Look but evan. What if what if rondo more is the slot in three wide receiver sets and christian kirk. Aj greener battling for one of the outside spots opposite hopkins. now now. we're cooking gas on rondell more. So i hope you've been tempted to move round down more up in the rankings. No he He's been hovering right around the edge of the top one fifty in your head ahead. I've been trying to slow. Play it a little bit..

"It might not be until midseason or late season or twenty twenty two before he becomes a player that looks or resembles a first round pick The last Ron rivera sound bite. That i wanted to play for you Ease on the overall offfensive skill position players which was sort of at the top of my list of the things that i liked on. Here's what he said. There was a lot of good things that we can work with. That really were We saw some guys at that really did flash. Well you know the Look cited about our speed out there with niamey. I thought the the overthrow was little bit him. Not quite understanding. you know to. You know that you've always got to get off that line like you're the guy and he'll get better at that and with his speed he'll make those plice we hit him on a couple of nice throws underneath and and and his speech show so that was one of the huge pluses Using the titans was another plus for us in the in the fourth quarter. You saw stephen throwing the ball to the backs. Those are things that we got to be aware of because we do have some pretty good backs out of the backfield. They have a lot of versatility with their running backs as receivers gibson mckissick. I think patterson as well you know. let's not forget. jd. Mckissick last year was number. Two on the team in receptions with eighty. He was number two on the team in targets. With one hundred ten antonio gibson caught thirty six balls last year The it's not that ryan fitzpatrick is at check down guy. But they're going to be called plays to get the ball out to gibson mckissick and maybe patterson in space you know. We saw a lot of run extension throws in the scott turner offense last year. And i think you're going to see it again. These guys at in-space are really good at making people miss and getting you know yardage that nest isn't necessarily isn't necessarily there with a lot of running backs great versatility with their running back situation right now. I think that's encouraging. I wanted to play too. Quick soundbites from taylor heineke. I'm he spoke after the game and he was asked about two of the young offensive players de army brown. And jared patterson. Here's what he said about the army brown the always a talent And you can see every day in practice. He's getting better. He's understand the offense better and He's got world class speed on the football field. So i know a lot of the offense guys are very excited about him. I know fits is really excited about him as well. So again. We're we're really looking forward to seeing what you can do this year. Everybody loves yami brown out there. They loved them before the draft. They love him even more now. He's another guy that can take the top off of defense to go with mclaren And there is great excitement. You heard him even refer to. What fits thinks of diani brown. This is you know who knows. Maybe it's terry maclaurin to imagine having both of them. Here's what he said about. Jared patterson listened to the copy makes yet. He's small do but he's got he's got a lot toughness and he's really quick You know if you go back and watch a lot of the tape from. Darren sproles back in the day. The chargers reminds me a lot of him so Really quick make people mess on his hands. it's really exciting to watch. Darren sproles Not a bad comp My one prediction off of last night's game In terms of a new prediction jarrett. Patterson's going be on the final roster. I think he is. I could be dead wrong. He could just be one of these. Preseason heroes that gets cut brought back to the practice squad. Nobody else is interested in them. He just looks the part to me. He looks like he's got all that you would want in a change of pace back and potentially even a third round bat third down back. I wonder what they would do to keep him. Would they get rid of mckissick mckissick. Six not a big burn in terms of cap number but mckissick was good last year and i think turner really likes mckissick. And he's more of a veteran guy on a very young team But i think. They're keeping patterson i don't think they can expose them. I one more segment couple of things from the other game last night including the way philadelphia approached the game last night. Also what the chargers are thinking about With respect to their preseason that is washington's week one opponent all of that right after these words from a few of our sponsors.

"Showed me something. They haven't had that you know we've talked about the roster the roster's better than it's been a long time whenever the year is if you want to go back to two thousand five or two thousand or nineteen ninety one. Whatever it is the roster is as complete or It has the fewest number of holes. That it's had in a long long time and they added skill position players and some of the skill position players already had You know started to prove themselves. And we'll be better with a good quarterback so you know on the list of things that i liked. I really liked the playmakers. The skill position players on offense last night in terms of just evaluating the player and the way. They played most all the quarterbacks most of the running backs most of the tight ends in most of the receivers played well. And i would've evaluated them pretty highly last night and it's encouraging to see some guys who can really make some place and i think it's really encouraging to see fitzpatrick and logan. Thomas connect on a back shoulder throw. It looked like they had done it for years together. And to see maclaurin come underneath on that big throw from fitzpatrick to see fitzpatrick work. His way across progression in hit atom humphries for a third down conversion. He only missed one thrown. It was to humphries. Also on the list of things that i liked. I thought sam cosmi in his first game at right tackle. I thought he showed pretty well. And you'll hear what ron rivera said about him in some of the other young players but i thought cosmi who played i think every snap in the first half They loved him. I i i told you guys before the draft there were a few players That i told you they. The offensive staff really likes cosmi and brown. Were two of them. The receiver out of ole miss was another one and there was another player that i can't remember right now and they got caused me and diani brown when they drafted causing me because i had heard that they were really high on them. I was thinking left tackle at the time they were. They were clearly thinking right tackle. He's you're starting right. Tackle right now right. I don't think it's going to be anybody. But him. I mean is it gonna be david sharp. Who's on cove is going to be cornelius. Lucas who's miss some time. No i think we saw what they believe. They're starting offensive. Line is going to be. You know 'cause me sheriff. Roue schweitzer and leno We saw flowers in there A lot last night We saw city charles. Take some snaps at left tackle. But i thought causing me was really impressive. He's on the list of things that i liked. I thought there punt returning situation which i talked about yesterday really was impressive. You can make a lot of big returns in preseason games and we saw guy andre carter who decisively and comfortably caught the ball and then was decisive in his decision making to get the ball upfield he had to returns both of nineteen yard returns for thirty eight yards in an average of nineteen yards per punt return. That's pretty damn good. Dax milne had a nineteen yard punt return. He looked good. Stevenson's junior did not do well on his one punt return but stevenson's junior had a really good catch in the game as a receiver so the punt return thing at least on night one in the preseason from a player evaluation standpoint gives you something to be. You know marginally optimistic about they need something from the return game. The punt return game Lastly chase young So thank god. They didn't go and win that giant game in twenty nineteen right. Can you imagine they had a really good chance to win that game at the end of that year if they won that giant game which they were desperately trying to do in twenty nineteen chase young would be a new york giant not a washington. Football team player. They lost that game in overtime. Thank god daniel. Jones lead and overtime drive right. It was the only drive. I think it was like you know one drive. I don't think washington never touch the ball. And they threw a touchdown pass and they won the game. That was like the best possible. Scenario that day you know. Haskins played well The mclaren was outstanding. D you know it was a shootout game but they lost it you know. They also had a chance. Remember to philadelphia towards the end of that year two and they lost that game. Thankfully my god. You got a transcendent once in a decade type of talent in chase young and i thought one of the more interesting parts of last night was that his move on the sac which was not a it was an incomplete pass and by the way i think that's i'm correctly called i thought cam newton's arm was going forward and i thought that was an incomplete pass. First of all he's not going to be solo blocked In in most games. I mean unless you really have tackles like tampa did last year and tampa really handled him in that playoff game. But if you don't have a strong tackle he's going to get shipped if not double. They're gonna game plan for him. He's a guy that finally defensively they've got a guide. You have to game plan for. But i thought the use of his hands the angle that he got his body in and just the quick twitch edge speed but the way he used his hands to create that lane and as quickly as he got to cam newton a big dude that he hit hard and brought down and forced to lose the football again. His arm was moving forward in an incomplete. Pass it's hard not to be optimistic. Debt with sweat and with young and with allen and with pain and with and nitis that they're not gonna be a really difficult front four deal with weaken and week out so young second year full off season young was hurt for part of last year You know if they allow themselves To play to play within that scheme which is a good one with rivera. Always has been Sweat and or young is going to have a big year and maybe it's a sweat because of his talent but also because so much focuses on young Or maybe it's both of them. I don't know but that That was a pretty jarring first series. Pass rush hit from chase young as far as doron pain. I'm not as worked up as many of you are on him. Not falling on the ball. The ball was bouncing up. A little bit you know. He should have grabbed. Cleanly but defensive tackles. Don't grab anything cleanly in by the way they don't fall on fumbles and protect the ball very cleanly and consistently either. I wanna see an aggressive defense. That tries to score did last year. It had to last year. You had the sweat touchdown in the dallas game on thanksgiving. You had to chase young score against the niners. I wanna see a playmaking defense for the first time in a long long time. And i think they've got the capability of doing that. Obviously there are certain situations and most of you would say it's every situation where you just try to fall on the ball but at the ball's bouncing around in bounces up waist high. I wanna see him. Try to make a play with it. that is the list of things that i liked The things that i didn't like will we start with the obvious dustin hopkins. It's amazing to me that doesn't hopkins is entering his seventh season here. I've mentioned this many times. I'll do it again to beat the the dead horse Over and over again. If you watch hopkins kick up close and i have in ashburn. There is no doubt in my mind. Why any coach. Any special teams coach. Any bystander is just wowed by dustin hopkins. The ball explodes off his foot. It does and it gets up quickly. A does everything that a special teams coach once. He's got the strong leg. He gets immed- elevation so there's no chance of being blocked. But he's a very inconsistent kicker and he has been and that's a problem and he's missed so many big kicks twenty sixteen season is still on the bothers me the most partly because i understand they played poorly on january first and my guy cousins played a bad game in a game against a team that had nothing to play for and they lost to the giants and didn't go to the playoffs. Instead of being nine six and one with back to back playoff years they finished eight seven and one and didn't make the postseason. The defense was terrible in that game on january. First as well. But i you know..

"Good coordinator Not believe in him as a coach Especially in the nfl. Era in in miami I mean five point win against virginia. Yeah this team was ryan mentioned three and hold on three or nine against the spread laying seven points or more and and miami was really bad against the spread. Last year they were. They were six and five. So there's gonna be they're gonna be hyped. They will be they will. They will be big favorites and some of these spots. The koby's point. Like i think this is a team that we can make money on week to week and i even think like this. Let me circle this north. I hope they have a good start to the season. I hope it's a an alabama thumping and then four straight win so we can crush north carolina that we come off the bye. Because i think we're going to have a situation where at miami's way over hyped and maybe they haven't tripped up yet and we're gonna be able to make some money that night but i think it's under all the way i think. Look at the road games here and you look at some of the home games down the stretch. Virginia tech always plays well in miami plays. Winston is going to be a good team at pittsburgh we like i. I would pencil that in right now. Take pittsburgh all over that. Pittsburgh is somehow a dog in that one Take the money line and at florida state. Like if there's a game that. I think florida after bobby belgians could get if there's one game on that fsu schedule it's that game. So i i. I think miami. I don't know maybe this is one of those win. Totals if you'd be if you bet the over you're looking about the under you. You look on prop swab later on After they've started foreign one to see being get some value their extraction value from the marketplace. On right and you mentioned nal and info only nevin. Shapiro hadn't waited a little bit longer in the nfl king the irony. He missed his college. Jesus christ and if you've never seen the documentaries the you the the very good and also cocaine cowboys same the guy who directed that directed that and they now have a cocaine cowboy series. They had a couple movies if you've seen the movies they're awesome but if you like the movies you would love. Love the series episode four but. There's a hilarious part. Where one of the One of these like you know. Billion dollar coke importers he gets arrested out. Nah he uses a fake name. He skips town on bond and the la county sheriff is watching espn and sees him on espn racing. A fucking speedboat. Oh man eighty two different areas. Yeah didn't get arrested. Still took them all out. They got him. So i saw that picture of michael irvin and what. He was dressed going to court back in the eighties wearing like a a a a pen. Pass sue like dark shades. He wore that to defend him to his trial for getting caught with crack cocaine. And this is is larry too because trending on Nfl subrata. it's a slow media day but this is from the from the nineties. Michael irving stabbed the teammate in the neck with a pair of scissors coming severely close to sevren his Karate artery and the incident was labeled scissor gait but he was basically a couple inches away from killing the guy. And you hear that. And you think oh. It was like crazy upbringing. This was in his eleven season. He was thirty two years old and Jerry jones immediately broker to six-figure settlement between irving and mcivor in exchange for mcivor silence and to prevent macgyver from pursuing criminal charges against irving. Play the irony of guy ever getting stabbed by a scissor. Yeah so much. See it coming so much though. It's i don't know how to pronounce mic ivor audio. It's perfect deal with that guy. When i was worked at a copy shop in In malibu macgyver. Yeah macgyver. The richard years which is ironic. Because he didn't know how to do shit when it comes to making copies just fuck up a color copier got sidetracked there talking coastal win totals. Unc nine a half minus one twenty five on the over plus one of five on the under plus thirty on the division eight to one to win the conference. Eleven to one to make the college football playoff minus three thousand amidst the college football playoff i think. Do we have a hal heisman. I'd take it and we do. I feel like that was a part of a comb. Kobe's employee perks. Twenty one bonus package one quick nugget again just from reading up on The these the different programs miami one ten and bowl since two thousand six holy shit and that is just crazy collapse all right so you can see hal again. He's he's he's the study tied he's tied for. Unc career touchdown record. Already was sixty eight touchdowns right now. Sixteen to one win the heisman they bring in the veteran offensive linemen. The issue seems to be. They lost a bunch of their skill guys. to the draft michael carter and giovanni williams who high on both those guys as far as like odor on the rush yards Even diani brown. He's kind of interesting. They definitely had some players. Come out yeah. So they're missing a lot of the skill guys on the offensive side of the ball. They got a pretty solid defense at least by unc standards. Colby is is the number to. Hi yes does. Unc ball out where we at. I liked the under man. I mean this is a team. They lose their best defensive player. This defense maybe nice by unc standards. This was the defense that was gave him fifty seven points to wake concerns on. That and i also have concerns like yes. You're replacing on this. You bring back your line sam. How that's great but it's a good sarp. You also open up the the season at virginia tech head on this where you have all these new players coming in to a place that hasn't is a toxic place in they haven't had fans in over a year and then what do you have week three. Oh you got bronco men. And all who seems to own mack brown. He just seems to own mack. Brown so I think that's a dangerous game. Even i don't care where they play it that he when he was at byu. He swept texas Then after that you get you get down further in the schedule. Yes that miami. Game that i think. They're probably going to beat miami but that could go either way At notre dame october thirty. That's going to be cold and south bend. I don't care that they get a bye week. Prior to that then at nc state those were to lose -able games Quick scheduling quirk to. They're playing wake forest as a non conference just a heads up on that one. I think i think the element of the schedule You catch the hokies at the worst possible time. Because the season couldn't have cratered at this point in Isn't fired yet. You catch you catch a florida state in an interesting spot looking ahead back. Brown's never beaten miami exactly in florida state. You know who knows. They could scrape a winter too. You have the at notre dame you have at pittsburgh and you have an at nc state game or nc state is going to be very up for that one to me Between the florida state miami. Where they i think they lose one of those two and then they're going gonna drop two of those road games. I think this is an easy under as well. I think north carolina could still end up winning this division and being the best teams at nine. Three seven. five you can..

"Office again before we get to a major league deep dive on the first official depth chart of the season. I did want to thank those of you. Who have told me for a while. Now if you're looking for a new show watch ted lasso. I watched the first four episodes of season one last night. And i absolutely love it Cowboy clay steve Rob patty there several of you That have reached out to me over the last. I don't know several months when we've talked television shows and you've said you guys are gonna love this show. I watched the first four episodes last night. And i can't wait to get to the rest of it. I've heard it gets better and better also to those of you who may be scratching themselves. Like i have been for the last three or four days with little bug bites. These are oak mites. That are out there. I don't know how many people are familiar with the oak. Might bites gist Google it there have been stories written in all sorts of of newspaper headlines. Dc residents terrorized by invisible flesh. Eating might Yeah this is This is a real thing. And i've been scratching some bug bites on my arms and legs for the last three or four nights. At first i thought they might be bedbugs from this furnished rental that we've had to move into for a time being until our new house is ready to be moved into But apparently what they are is they have. Come to feed on cicadas eggs. That were left by the cicadas last. Not last month but now two months ago which by the way was sort of an overrated event. I think the noise wasn't bothersome. I didn't have to go with an umbrella outside to keep them off my face and body. That never happened. But these mites are a real deal so if you're scratching yourself and you can't figure out why and you've got little red bug bites on your arms especially that's what it is. These are oak mites They're apparently in oak trees. Feeding off the cicadas eggs left. Remember cicadas basically or the brood. X cicadas right. Every seventeen years they come out they fly around they bang another kedah. They lay their eggs and they die. And then you know seventeen years later. The new ones hatch. Well apparently these mites love these eggs and when the wind blows a little bit and you're near oak tree they're landing on bodies and they're biting you. You can't see them. Apparently they are microscopic in size like they are a fraction of like the size of a pinhead but they're also apparently not dangerous at all but anyway That's all i got on that The depth chart is out. Look i i'm not gonna make fun of the people that do the depth chart some not talking about the teams. I'm talking about the people who you know. Update their fifty three man roster projection dock us to give me a hard time. He used to say when you're fifty three man roster coming out and i said i don't do that i think i did it for maybe like two or three years But then i realized it's just not for me anyway I don't wanna completely sort of you know. Be condescending or diminish you know the results of it washington put it out. Look somebody pays attention to this thing. I don't know if it's old joe in the mail room that puts it together but somebody puts together has a general idea of what the depth chart actually is. You know it's not like teams are sitting there going. Oh let's put together a depth chart. That's really misleading. So the patriots. On thursday night plan for david sharp at right tackle instead of sam cosmi. They don't care about that. At this point they're supposed to put out honest effort depth charts before the first preseason game and you know for me. I a lot can change obviously between now in the opener but they're instructive especially in those areas. Where you think there's a lot of competition in you know it also sort of matches up with what a lot of the beat you guys have been seeing at practice. So the two areas that were You know for me interesting to at least look at. I wanted to look at wide receiver. And i wanted to look at offensive line. I wanted to see you know what what they had lined up starter. Because i'm surprised that eric flowers isn't the starting left guard i thought when they acquired eric flowers they acquired him to be the starting left guard. West schweitzer was the starting left guard last year. And he's number one in the depth chart and he has been the guy. That's gotten the most reps with the first team. So eric flowers looks like a depth guy. He's number two behind schweitzer on the depth chart. They've got leno at left tackle. They've got obviously rue des center in sheriff at right guard and i was interested to see who you know. The number one right tackle. Was it sam cosmi at wide receiver. I wanted to see what they had. Well they have what you would expect. Even though one of these guys is available right now but terry maclaurin of course Curtis samuel who hasn't practiced yet and adam humphreys were the top three receivers and then behind them. Diani brown behind terry at the x. And then you had. Cam simms behind curtis samuels and steven sims junior behind adam humphreys so that would give you an idea it at least as far as you can believe this that those are the six guys right now. The sims juniors. Battling it out with the andre carter to be punt returner and whoever wins that punt returner job. I think he's going to be the sixth receiver. I guess they could keep seven but more likely than not six which means a guy like antonio gandhi golden guide at a lot of people loved last. Summer is in more likely than not trouble. Isaiah right kelvin. Hormann from nc state coming off. His injury appears to be in trouble. He's the fourth receiver On one of the receiver spots So anyway Yeah that's it You know jamie davis is pencilled and is the starting middle linebacker. The more i've talked to various people. Think we're gonna see a lot of different defensive alignments you know their basis for three but therein nikola lot. They play a buffalo nikola which at times can be a linebacker a lot of times. They have just two linebackers on the field and none of them. Were playing that middle linebacker spot and you're going to see a lot of in year two with a full off season. A lot of creativity defensively this year especially given. They've got a lot of players that they feel comfortable. Putting on the field. With by the way is ron rivera. You know Always talks about sort of positional flexibility. That's important for him. you know. That's why a guy like cornelius. Lucas is valuable to them. Maybe guy like city charles as well a guy that complain multiple positions. They want that positional flexibility. They wanna be able to you. Know endure injuries. in a in a way in which it allows them To plug and play with is they're used to playing various spots and are capable of playing those spots by the way on that depth chart Danny johnson was the number one kick returner. And even though stevenson's junior was ahead of the andre carter at wide receiver. Carter was ahead of sims junior as the punt returner. So they're a taylor heineke for those. That were interested did Come up yesterday and practice hobbling a little bit but rivera said he would be okay..
"diani brown" Discussed on First Take
"Done. They win the nfc weeks yeah. I'm going with the dallas cowboys. And i'm not a cowboys fan. And i'm not even really a cowboy supporter. That's the crazy thing about. This cheered on the cowboys in years. Even though i grew up in dallas. But the reason i'm going with the dallas cowboys is twofold number. One that prescott is gonna come back a lot more motivated. We all saw what he did in his first. Four games at some change last year. Averaging over three hundred seventy yards on offense touchdowns we also would happen. When when he wasn't there was all that. So that's coming back. He's more motivated is going to lead really well so all that said we could talk about. Cd land we talk about michael. Gallup motivated ezekiel elliott. We could talk about all that stuff. But what i really wanna talk about. My second point is the fact that this that's actually will be good right. The last their new defensive coordinator dan quinn the last time. You was the defensive coordinator in two thousand thirteen and twenty fourteen back when he was with seattle bad the number one rated defense. You know who the cowboys defensive. Coordinator was last year might nolan. They had the twenty eighth string defense so the defense will be better. Yes it will take time. But i'm going with the cowboys. I still love washington. I'm high on the washington football team. Anyone who watches knows that. But i think the washing football team will make it. Challenging dallas will win the division. I mean you are just like your brother. You are just good. I've watched you on television last week. Say that you believe. the washington. Football team was the most equipped or best equipped to knock off the tampa bay buccaneers and to win the division. It's like absolutely we're how can they be a team. That is good enough to knock off the defending champion. But they can't win the division. Like i don't understand you're gonna have to explain that one to me. My pink is washington. It has been washington since april. I think this is the best defense in football. You'd you mentioned davis d. edition out of kentucky. It's great. It's also william jackson coming over as a corner from cincinnati. This will be the best defense in football. I think they're offensive. Line is much better than people think. They kept shirt that draft. They caused me in the second round. That's a huge edition. I actually think this is going to be the fastest or one of the fastest offenses in football. Terry corn is a bona fide. One curtis samuel is absolutely juice. Gibson is a tailback is a fantastic player. And i think diani brown their third round pick out of north carolina wide receiver is going to have tremendous impact for their offense and everyone goes well. What are you going to get. What fits i would say this. The best versions of fit ryan fitzpatrick are always attached to. When he's playing with a good defense why because he plays a yolo style of football. It's like i'm just going to be ultra aggressive. Sometimes the ball gets put in harm's way more than you want crates turnovers. What is a great defense do gets turned over. It doesn't hurt your football team. They get the ball right back or get off the field quickly. That's why he plays so well in that style with a good defense. I like washington. I think the giants of danny jones takes a huge step forward or going to be good. I have a different viewpoint in the division and other people. I think it's going to be a good division now to the cowboys. Stop talking to me about their defense. They have the second highest paid quarterback the second highest paid running back the fourth highest paid wide receiver. They have another first round pick wide receiver. They have the second highest paid guard in ten paid offensive line. I don't care if the is thirtieth. I don't care you should win the division with that. I don't like stop building in excuses. Further offensive players. I don't think this defense is going to be that much better than they were last year. Demarcus lawrence has to be the best player in the field and other than that. Find me a truly dependable impactful player on their defense. I got you dan first and foremost. So you've been high on washington since april. I've been hiring washington since last year. The season started but yeah to win the division. I said they wanted to mention last year number. One number two number two big dan began. I'll check check me out real quick. You said i'm just like my brother. Switzer takes all the things you can win the division and also not win the super bowl. You can lose the division. be second. make the playoffs and be a better match up for a certain team. All the reasons that you just said which are all the reasons. I believe right talking about the wrong pain chase young every reason you just said scare retirement. Lauren is the reason why the washington football team will challenge. Tampa bay right. But that's a that's a matchup right. Tampa bay's defense is solid. Washington's defense is solid tampa. Bay's offense obviously extraordinary right washington console that down so you can lose your division look at the new york football giants like you talk about all the time you can lose your division and still go win the super bowl possible stuff happens. So it's about matchups. The question was earlier. Washington are they best matched up to beat tampa bay and i believe they are. It's a matchup but who can win the division. I think dallas can not for the reasons you name just. The offense is good. But i've been around good defensive coordinators i've been about around bad ones and good ones and i've seen them take chicago. Bears twenty fourteen right. We have the data they. Because i wouldn't even the team then had the thirty first ranked defense actually thirty-second the year before two thousand thirteen. They were thirty. I all of a sudden twenty fifteen rolls around this guy named vic bingo vic fangio my coach i played under vic for four years. We went from thirty two to seventeen. No we weren't number one that next year but you know the next year you went seventeen to eleven and nine and then we were number one. It's so yes there will be a drastic jump. It didn't take superstars we didn't have superstars back in two thousand fifteen and sixteen we built that so the dallas cowboys defense will be better. That's not an excuse. I'm not a dallas cowboys defender by any means. I think they will win the division. I think it'll be tight. But i also think that washington is very well suited to compete with tampa bay because of of a match up. That's the only reason. The pushback i would have with the defensive aspect is vic runs a completely different scheme and i don't wanna get too nerdy on. I take a completely different scheme. Davis going nerdy. And let's get married. You know dan. Quinn scheme is covered three right. What's the most important aspect of that to be good. What's the most important aspect you need. Big corners. You need good quarters. Pass rush maps rush. You mentioned his defense in seattle. he ain't got favorable. Hang got michael bennett down in dallas and got those dudes that's what made that defense dominant okay so while the scheme is going to be simplified and allow them to play faster. You will get absolutely gutted in the nfl playing covered three without a pass rush nowadays. All right let's get back to my giants. I mean this is fun talking about washington and the cowboys all the stuff. But there's this guy. Joe judge over there who i believe in. I want your thought i want. All of you weigh in on this. I was doing the show last week with bart scott. He came on. He thinks the giants are going to win the division. He actually said he thinks. Daniel dimes is more athletic than dak. Prescott freddie Why not for the giants. Live love for the judge. I mean daniels. Being more athletic. The dak prescott. You can make a case that i think the giants joe judge is the right coach for them. I just don't trust that. Daniel jones is gonna make that jump up. The you're going to need especially saquon. Barkley coming back from torn. Acl jo jobs can coach. There's no doubt about that. But that's asking a lot for a guy daniel jones. We're let's be honest. The giants are hoping and praying that he works out. Well because if he doesn't guess is gonna pay for that. It's going to be dave gentleman general manager because he's the one that drafted this guy when people said okay. Why did drafting him. That high has he had his moments. No doubt about that. But you gotta have consistently. Dan laskey says it all the time. You can be a great quarterback but inconsistent great quarterback. There's only so much you can do. We've seen daniel make place here and there just dropped the ball with nobody around him. If he's able to fix that then john's gonna play potentially in this division but it's all riding on him and right now. I still don't trust that as it gets. He can't be on the football field. Can he make those kinds of plays candidate. Charlton those kind of place and they don't trust make those kind of place. There's gonna be a long season once again for the new york football giants.

"Dot com today. That's geico dot com miami. We'll be one of the most experienced teams in the nascent. Headlined by the return of quarterback. D eric king the six year senior through for twenty three touchdowns last year before tearing his acl in december. Miami returns nine defensive starters but they struggled on that side of the ball last year head coach many has announced he will take over the play calling duties on defense. It'll be tested early the week. One matchup against alabama. If miami can pull off the upset they could be poised for just their second ten win season since joining the acc in two thousand and four been great for miami standpoint is having such an experienced team some of the guys we brought with us here this today from media day is the off season. How do we go through spring practice. How do we go through the workouts and guys that are experienced. They came back for the right reasons. they wanna see miami win and they want to set an example for the younger guys coming into our program which to me at miami. We've always had. We're going to be improved on. Defense is here and that is all going to be about the players. It's fun to talk about the coaches and the play calling this that and the other but but great defenses ultimately about the connection between the players on the field the trust and the accountability. And that's where i felt like a year ago. We didn't quite have that to the extent we had a lot of fraud. Now we play defense and my match felt like that. We took a step back in that regard not to our standard. Ej cantieri can carry the load to wendy absolutely. Can i mean he put up like you said over twenty six hundred yards of passing offense and i just think again this. His leadership ability guy success everywhere. He's playing whether it was houston and even now at miami and sure he didn't get a chance to compete in the spring. But he's been a ton of time with the coaches a ton of time watching his tape back learning where he needs to do better to go into the season. Just be more specially accurate in those deep balls. Because i think that's an area we can really take advantage of especially not having charleston ramble coming over from oklahoma. I tell you what ej. I agree with you one hundred percent. I'm glad you mentioned the deep ball. Because that's a part of his game. That i want to see if he can get better throwing the deep ball. They need to go vertical last year. He only completed twenty one out of sixty five balls thrown twenty yards or longer. So that's not gonna cut it. Thirty two percent led him at twelve out of fourteen. Quarterbacks got right to that same statistics. I think he's going to have to make defenses respective vertical game because of defense can play you in the little box and they know that your dual threat quarterback they could drop a guy in the box of spy which to me as a receiver. That's what you want because you're gonna get one on one on the outside you want to give vertical bu- until they respect that he's going to have to really prove that he could throw a long because he's gonna see eight nine man boxes going to really start to suffocate that running attack for the hurricanes does listen. You heard coach talk about it. He'll take over the play calling on defense he downplayed it but it is a change. What does that mean for. Both the coach and the team bowman. I mean that's what we know. Many as many as one of the better defensive play calls that we've seen in the past eighteen years and that's why he's the head coach. Mommy right now because of what he's brought to the table as defensive coordinator but we watched the canes in big games. You watch them against clemson. You wash gives you an it. Unc embarrassing how players. They were out of place. They act like they didn't know the call and they were being exposed so him to take over the play calling duties me. There's something else is going to suffer as far as the head coach. He's going to have this have someone else on his stay up. Who can pick up that. He can pick up some of the duties that he's gonna have to delegate to them as a head coach probably some sort of assistant head coach. But i think it's really good to see manny back in the saddle as the play called up the deepest aspect of very aggressive very exciting group of guys who are going to be flying around. And they're going to be very very physical to all right. Does end speaking of miami still to come on college. Football live quarterback. Derek talked about as he heads into year. Two will join us check in live. We'll of course asked about his recovery from the acl injury and maybe even look ahead to that week. One matchup against idaho alabama in the meantime though let's talk a little bit about unc. Sam how low potential pack in the two thousand twenty two. Nfl draft i. He'll look though to continue his historic college career. Sixty eight touchdowns tied for the most in tar heel history. He'll have a completely new supporting cast. The tar heels lost to one thousand yard rushers and devante williams and michael carter as well as their top two receivers diani brown and dez does newsom. You put plenty of young talent coming in the tar heel signed the twelfth best recruiting class in the nation in twenty thousand twenty one. The headliner case sean. Silver number three defensive in class. Here's mac preseason hype. We've gotten high. We've been hugged. We've been we've had sugar thrown all over. We're all enjoying it and we like it. So let's let's clean it off and let's get back to facts. 'cause we were fifth in the country when we went to florida state and about twenty fifth when we were leaving so i was trying to explain to your not the fifth best team in the country without tell them you're not the fifth best team in the country but we gotta play all those guys in the running back room and there were serious They have a really big chip on their shoulder. They're kind of tired of everyone's talking about who we loss instead of talking about who we got coming in this year so they worked so hard. I've spent so much time for them. It's been a good challenge for me just to try. Try those guys developed into the players. We wanna see this fall. Ej there were all bright spots for unc last season and there were of course the typical missteps at well as well. Are they in position to take the next step forward. Yeah when do you think they are. You know obviously you talk about the receivers and the running back today lost. Nfl draft but look they have some talent coming back both positions. I would say first off getting taught chandler. Come over from tennessee. A guy was put up over two thousand plus all purpose shards in the sec. So he's not gonna be afraid when he gets no bright lights. Acc conference but also you talked about the receivers shafi brown. The brother of brown corral was out a bunch last year with the injury. Another got josh down so they can put in the backfield and also flex out in the slot. I called their spring game and they were still throwing that ball down. Appeal sam gonna be just fine this season. Ej i'm excited about sam. How but man he lost so much. Production and productivity around him. You look at the two running backs you know you lived to white house. I mean you got to white house. Both the thousand yard receivers. You got two running backs. Both the thousand yard russia's that's a huge amount of productivity that they have to replace a quarterbacks best friend ej besides the left tackle. Is the running back in the running game that took a whole lot of pressure. Off of sam. How but if. I'm matt jones and i gotta try to rebuild my offense. At least. I have a veteran quarterback in sam that can lead the troops and that will give me a lot of hoping defensively. They're return ten starters on deepest. Don't forget last year they were number number five in f. b. s. with thirty six sacks so they can get after the passer so defensively. I think they're able to take in a position to take another step forward. But sam how gives me hope off pencil. Because he's a veteran quarterback. What a whole bunch of new faces in new places and offers a skill positions desma teed up perfectly just the way we get. We're in midseason form. Ej having said all of that. Where do you need to see improvement from. Sam how do you like most quarterbacks. You just want to improve in the footwork. When i went back and watched his in preparation of his spring game there was a few times where he was bouncing around the pocket. You know taking one more than more one more hits than he actually needed especially as a five and a hitch seven and a hitch. Drop in the gun. I feel like if he can. Just tighten that down. It'd be a lot more accurate..

"For sure with regard to To i don't know i i would imagine how i'll say. Lucas is out there for week. One but it was but rivera clearly cog me and it wouldn't surprise you there for if he gets out there i've seen enough. What about in the third round of the two players. Let's go with the first one that was picked. Benjamin saint juice. The cornerback from minnesota. I sort of feel like since minicamp. And not as there's been a lot of discussion about him and in various you know stories About the upcoming season he's been picked as like a surprise contributor et cetera What was the scouts. Take on him. And where do you think he sort of fits in right now Yeah i mean the the conversation with saint jews with probably more broadly about the fact that he's a six foot three cornerback. And what does that mean in the nfl. And obviously there's a lot of a lot of positives have a player who that size who's that fluid You know the length the the ability you know. Receivers are getting bigger and bigger. The opposite are some of the short guys. But they're they're getting a lot of these bigger a bigger option than you need. It's important to have size on the perimeter so so so they've got that with With these now the one question is sort of like when you have when you have taller corners the longer leg. It's not as easy at time for them to sort of get in and out of a breaks and and And things along those lines and that was sort of the the the biggest question here. But i think in general he he you know like the the player from what he he had seen. I don't think he has as much of a feel for him. Versus like some of the other people were talking about but You know by jews. I think it's a really fascinating circumstance right like where we like. It was easy to say. Okay they're gonna have kendall fuller. Williams acts on the outside you anymore than is the nickel cornerback. And then you have you know. S- landon collins at strong safety and this is the other but you know you have cam if kid keep cam carlin land account on the field together which is something. Obviously they did beginning of last year and potentially the way to to to go this time will then that means taking one of the cornerbacks off the field on the other hand you can make the case that hey if things you can actually play right now like he did a time during d. a.'s and he can't be looked pretty good again. you know. Take all those practices with a grain of salt. But look pretty good. If he's able to go are you may be better off putting him outside moving kendall fuller to the slot on some on some more plays and going that route But that would maybe take curl or more off the field a little bit more so they really actually have. It's actually gonna be pretty interesting to see what what they do in the in the secondary algae landon collins probably wanting to be on the field for most raw training camp So we won't see in seoul but You know the fact that thank you again. It's been incredibly early. But the fact that he's looks the part early on gives them size where they otherwise. Don't really have a lot. I mean. I think it's gonna make him a really intriguing option for them. Yeah i do too. I think just the secondary in general and landon collins availability in his health and training camp and a lot of that will be interesting. You know we've already heard some favorable things. Said maybe you were a part of this discussion derek forest their fifth round pick And how well coached he was coming from. You know a a a cincinnati defense. It was one of the outstanding defenses in college. Football last year We know how much they liked. Jeremy reeves are just a lot going on in the secondary shazier everett. I thought played really well. You know. I one of my favorite points of the year. That cooley made Last year during the season. And i forget when he made it but it was after shaves. Her effort started to play. He said shays her. Everett is one of those guys that has really not benefited from The lack of hitting in practice and the rules regulating hitting in practice. Because the thing that he does well which is hit. doesn't show up in practice. And that's why. Whenever he's gotten in the games he sort of always outperformed what many people in the organization thought he would I want to get to the other third round pick Diani brown. Because i know and you and i had these conversations before and i think you had a sense of it to that. There was a lot of Several people in the organization scott turner in particular that really wanted diani brown and they were holding. Their breath is the round was going on because they really saw him as another huge third round. Receiver get You talked to a scout about him and this is probably as positive. You know review. But we've heard a lot of it even since ota's in training camp but just give me some thoughts and share with everybody some of the thoughts that you got on the scout on the third round receiver from north carolina. Dami brown gets the put it. You know it's one thing for a player. I gaza say like a player share whatever but for some context in this case. The scout says that he had Brown rated very favorably compared to reshot bateman. Who was the first round pick by the ravens and a good pick And that sort of her for this evaluator the level that he's putting Brown on that that he was somebody a big fan of an inductee me he really is like even more than like Like i'm not just you know. Jamie davis is upside or caused. And all these guys especially the all these the top four guys are all you know veer into that athletic free category to a certain degree or at least they're intriguing athletically and i think it's interesting with me with with the omni brown is there's a lot of it. Seemed like a lotta terry mclaren in him. As a guy who's got speed but he's also really precise route runner and can play a little bit tougher than maybe you would think based on his side and I wonder you know maybe not this year. Obviously have curtis samuel.

"The podcast. Everybody knows ben rights for the athletic. Follow ben on twitter ben standing and you can subscribe to the athletic. It's totally worth it. And ben in rhiannon and all of the local writers Make the price worth The admission and benz got a podcast to standing-room-only. You can get that anywhere you get a podcast We're gonna get into several topics with ben today but you wrote a column yesterday Where you went out and asked people about washington's rookies And you got feedback from From a longtime nfl scout and an executive who's watched each player At they drafted and before we get to Their third round. Pick which i i know how excited they were to get diani brown Let's go through one by one. What did you learn about what you know. Nfl people or at least one nfl executive thinks about washington's rookie class. Yeah so like this is an exercise. It was probably more appropriate to do sort of you know right after the draft and i did some of the things then but i was having a conversation with somebody somewhat recently and you know sort of the idea came up and i don't remember exactly which one of the players were talking about i but he made a point. That was that was interesting. I was like what would you mind sort of you know not on the record per or whatever like you know. Give me your thoughts on the players in this class that you feel comfortable talking about and that's kind of where kind of where we went and You know i think the broader takeaway is. It was the reason i wrote about. It was because camps bathroom at the start and soon enough. We'll lump the rookies in with the overall fifty three. They won't be rookie. It'll be part of the team right. Now they're still sort of a separate subset is a reminder of that like this seems like on paper to be a pretty good class particularly those guys at the top and yet james davis is going to have a lot of attention because he was the round pick and linebacker obviously is a big position of need. And we've talked about sam cosmi a bunch of because they kind of you know having been a position now where they kind of need to get something out of him at some point here because You know they moved on from working those but those two third guys think houston and the ambi- ran. You know feels like early on like that. Maybe where their best value is going to come out. And this person particularly was a big fan of of brown house me as well and You know like. I said it's going to be really interesting. You know whoever we want to give credit to these things. You know two years in a row with ron rivera. Sort of in charge of this thing at least intellectually if not from scouting perspective. You know watching has gotten high marks Following a draft will. Yeah i've always liked been of the Of the mindset that it's impossible to really great a draft until three years after roughly three years after it but last year's draft. It's obvious that they didn't with on chase young antonio gibson looks like he could really be a player and cameron curl in the seventh round. Looks like a potential. nfl starter. So they did pretty well there but number two overall wasn't very hard. You know the this year you know by the way kyle. Smith was a part of that decision making outfit last year. Right i mean. Do we know today ben. How much credit kyle smith gets for last year's draft Not not not exactly. I mean you know i think all of it's it's confusing right because even when you talk to some people who are you know involved in densely involved know what's happening whatever you know just like didn't right if you and i start right this minute having a conversation about Anything but whatever. The topic is and somehow we ended up with some conclusion. Do you ha- do you always remember exactly where they were. The idea came from. You know who. Who was the first person like i remember. Wins like for example like ron rivera gave a lot of credit. This isn't about the draft is raising. They do like He gave credit to pete. Had tight end coach. Pete hainer for pointing out. Logan thomas and that's totally seems like i'm healthy like a reasonable thing. Sure but at the same point. I had it. Pete hainer get to that person to get to that person because he automatically do logan thomas or like when jay gruden was given some credit for identifying holcomb. He didn't i. only jay. Gruden.

"I can't i can't have it. No i cannot have a playoff matchup. I cannot have a playoff game with four. nfl teams by. You're in the scott fishbowl. Aren't you yeah. But he does it in like a cool way makes it. Okay this is. I have no name on this. Oh no this is from. Yeah no name. But from a town on. Lake superior melvin. Hey dante dante christian brett and donovan. I'm going to be honest with you. I read this before. I do not remember donovan. Mcnabb on the vikings though recollection of that. Yeah i i was a big donovan mcnabb fan and i've tried to just wipe all of everything that happened. After he left philadelphia out of my memory believe he was also on the washington football team. That won i know he was on washington that was traded to watch and i was a crazy deal within the division. I don't remember this. Vikings year either. Okay good it was. It was his last year. He played like five games. Like the mandela affect. Okay donovan mcnabb. Let's say he played one year for washington. Five games for minnesota threw four touchdowns. Good job. okay. Here's the question from the vikings fan. I have the third my dynasty startup league. I'm not really feeling taylor. Or camera or saquon barkley. Can you talk me into one of them or should i. Trade out is a three receiver league with two flexes. Somebody loves any of these backs. I would trade out typically for me in dynasty. I do really stand by feeling that. He's running backs are bit overrated. In general i mean even last year i remember at the start of dynasty a salary cap league in the person who spent so much money on Which trying to treat a midseason in not getting Didn't end up getting much back in return and just shows you how the values fault so fast at the running back position so for me. If you could trade out i would do that. And i would even target somebody like mahomes late in the route in the first round. I won't even even won't be. I love taking somebody mahomes there. Yeah great last question. No sorry we have two more second last question from lucan toronto. The trade twelve team. Pr dynasty league gave up russell wilson and jd. Mckissic got one eleven to eleven and carson he turned that into rashad bateman diani brown and carson wentz for russell wilson and. Jd mckissic. dan you talk. While i calculate he is the dynasty game here. So i'm gonna wait for his response here but for me. i do. tend to feel like rookie. Draft picks are overrated in dynasty. When it comes to trades in how people value them for me. The is not too far of a of. Because i do have some hope with carson. Wentz said he will be able to revive his career. Bit with frank reich over there in an amazing offensive line..

"I'm still going to have one of the worst. Quarterbacks in the league at that point is just outside the top twelve quarterback he was the number two pick of the draft. I mean there are a lot of really bad players. Who went number quarterbacks. At number two overall i get that but i mean you know. He was the second best player disposition. Not the sixteenth best. I don't know that that his he has the top six quarterback. Yeah i do absolutely not in your one got definitely not. Is that what you meant. Or overall though i don't i don't i could be wrong. I just don't see that as really a very likely. I know i wouldn't say it's like i wouldn't say it's likely but i think i think he has more chance to be relevant and top twelve then. A monroe saint browner diani brown. Do because i think at that point. They're twelve for sure. But i start to break. You need to start at the top forty wide receivers right but a top twelve. Yeah okay. But i think a top twelve quarterback zack. Wilson is going to have a better chance to be fantasy relevant than amman brown. After your one after. I i just think you need to. You need to go after. If you're in a one quarterback league there are so few difference makers at the position and can those two guys be a difference maker not a neat. Neither of them are going to run. Nearly as much as the other three quarterbacks in this draft and let me just read you. the list of the top. Quarterbacks is ridiculous and it's patrick. Mahomes josh allen cuyler murray justin herber dak prescott lamar jackson russell wilson to shawn watson and then we got trevor lawrence joe burrow and then justin fields. You know i just don't it just seems so hard for those two to crack That spot the the one the one thing. I will say though as that. Historically even one quarterback league's rookie quarterbacks drafted highly increase their value from year. One to year two Even ones that don't necessarily perform while in their rookie year. So there you do. Have that feather in your hat. I just don't see the the the rushing upside from those two to be true difference maker in one quarterback we think an interesting guy and we'll transition to buy lows in just a minute size. This is me make net transition for atom great too. I have noticed. It doesn't seem like any startup right now. And he was like the twenty second quarterback or something taking it does not seem like anybody has any interest in two right now. I don't value wilson or mack jones anywhere close to to agree like and so that's the thing i and i still don't know to is going to be good or not..
