Trust The Process?

"Always excited when it's football Monday here he has got him excited. We have breaking it down with NBA insider, they'll hasn't what do you like on the show today all former patriot Dion Lewis with the world's worst criticism of the patriots. Now, probably. How do you foresee Jimmy Butler coexisting when Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Michael Foale? Oh now, we have our answer. Whoa. Foltz is the name that's dangerous in his second language. Now. We have our answer though, for why NBA insider amino is here on a football Monday. This trade right here that sent reverberations throughout the basketball weekend. And I'm just curious how it's going to end up that will be a championship contender. If Jimmy Butler is their third best player that will not be a championship contender. If he goes there thinking, he's their best players taking all the fourth quarter charts is taking some of Ben Simmons is time to grow. I don't know what you'll be. I just thought fails spectacularly Minnesota with two lesser players than the ones he joins now. But I'd like to see it, and we'll see if Jimmy Butler with an extension can be more hospitable more professional in a better teaming than he wasn't Minnesota. We're all these wild accusations coming from Dan the guy went to Minnesota to help toughen. Those guys help teach them. How to win guys were winners in when he didn't wanna be there anymore. He had to get out of there. And so what do you do when you want to get out, and they won't trade? You your make a mess. This idea that Jimmy Butler is somehow a chronic mess makers dick Yetlis, he was trying to get out of a bad situation. He was asking to be traded. It wasn't being honored. So we have to make the mess to get out. Now, he's out of that mess. He's on a team with two truly players. Not just that billers. But guys who are winners we talked about Simmons and Embiid he doesn't have to coach them up on competitiveness and effort. They've already got that. He's just gotta fill in a role on that to be the elite wing to the elite point guards the elite center. Look, I got told again, and again that Jimmy Butler was a winner is a winner. He doesn't have that much winning on his resume him calling. Ben Simmons a winner when the guy got his coach fired at LSU won fourteen games. And wasn't even the NIT is fairly amazing college doesn't count. The you hear what Stephen dates me said about the trait. Whole wrestling promo old. You should be thought. Look a Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers talking about see this is why love to NBA so much. This is what it's all about laser tweeted about Boston. We've been talking about Ronco we've been talking about Milwaukee. But now it's about the Philadelphia seventy Sixers. They got a dog in the city of brotherly love, you're talking about Joel you wanted to be league MVP this status in your way. Wait bid Scimica jumps out of wait for being a champion because you would've beat could make that Kononov either way you slice it. I love what I'm seeing. I love what's going on right now that Greek freak uable walking. We'll see. We'll see Toronto Cohen. We'll see. We'll see the posted Celtics with the crow Tatum. Jalen brown. I reserve the hope it doesn't that anymore. This is what I saw about this basketball, baby. Gbi. Member philadelphia. Seventy Sixers dog is in the house adult is in the house for seed. Is mellow been used as a skit both for the rugged struggles. That is what Dwayne Wade is alleging on Twitter, Dwayne Wade who's on paternity leave with the Miami Heat is defending his good friend mellow who's been terrible in Houston. And Chris Paul as well it saying respect what mellow is been. He's a hall of Famer. But that team is so broken needs to make a change in many of us all this coming. Everybody was telling you that. This was not a good fit, including this guy, very loudly. This guy was saying that loudly, but even louder than the defensive struggles that they had that we expected the offenses struggles. Then this is one of the most historical events of all time a year ago. And now they're the worst shooting team in the NBA. They have the fourth worst defensive rating in the NBA. Let me tell you some names of teams have a better offense than the rockets the Cleveland Cavaliers can you name the starting lineup. I can't they're better than the rockets that doesn't make sense. But here's the thing. Our good friend. That second spectrum. They got this nifty little step. It's a shot qualities that it lets you know, what we expect them to shoot base on the shot selection based on who should knit where. And how close defenders all and second spectrum tells us that the rockets have the fourth best shot selection in the NBA for best shot quality, excuse me in the NBA. But they've got the worst shooting percentage. I expect that the comeback to earth Melanson terrible. But that's not his fault that might even out. But the most damning things if you're looking at the rockets, Chris Paul is thirty three with a lot of miles and injury on that body. And James harden, doesn't quite look like the MVP candidate that he was last year. That's where your problems start. It's not about Trevor REEs. It's not about mellow. It's those two guys. Deal noise. Right that the patriot cheapness cost them cheapness the word that he used. I don't know. How that sounded? But cheapness is what Dion Lewis is alleging. He used to be with the patriots. The titans produced the single biggest prize of the weekend because of how they want and listen to what he had to say gloating afterward, Bruce we win. Especially used to be there. And they wanna bring you back. So definitely. I'm having my teammates came out on plead. And I loved his little person person. That's what happened. That is a lot of talk from guy who carried the ball twenty times for fifty seven yards yesterday had two catches for eleven yards. And is so interchangeable that I an alleged football expert on this network in the middle of the daytime television programming had no idea which one of the running backs who catches passes for the patriots. This guy actually was because they've had fifteen of them since Kevin Faulk, and he's just one of them bizarre. Is that he criticized the patriots for their cat management. Really? This is like saying the warriors three-point shooting is come back to bite them. And this is like saying, the rocks work ethic is gonna come back to them. This is the single most moronic criticism. You could ever have the patriots. Of course, they're cheap. This is how they keep winning. He's a roller changeable parts, and when someone comes up on contract, and they're about to get paid a lot of money. They let some other sucker pay for it. The problem is that the patriots let him go. The problem is the titans got twenty million in cap space on the guy. The patriots. F fifteen. Do you still a spec d goes to get it together? This question is taunting me because I've been saying for weeks now. Hey, they're the best team in the division. No, one of the division is that good. But now they've lost three straight games at home in this one to the Cowboys after a by week, and they can't run the football team won the Super Bowl last year with Nick foles as the Super Bowl MVP, not because of Nick foles because that offense of line was exceptional. It has not been this year. They can't run the ball. And so all they did was have Carson Wentz? Throwing it all over the place. He has no timing with Al and on top of that. We don't know how healthy with no running game. They are a deluded version of the champions. We saw last year. My analysis had been that they were good enough to win that division. They were separated from the rest of the teams in that division but clearly fallen right back into the grouping in an awful division. It doesn't look good for the eagles guys. They have the toughest strengthen schedule from here on out at the Rams at the saints. They play the Redskins the division. Leading Redskins twice. They play the Cowboys on the road. No, sir. Twenty percent chances on ESPN lyrics gives them. And I think that's too much. He was better on that analysis. Then I was he's the NBA got. Well, they get the answer. All they got to make one change. They got the Bank Nick foles in one of the fourth them last year. You know, they got the MVP of the Super Bowl last year. And he guys rather depend. He said time is a ton to make change. Otherwise, break way, one falls back. We want making back we both back. Thinking back. Back we want Nikki back. We was we was back. That's weird. Sounds like you say we want Nickelback. Next highly questionable. This one set on the read when happened here with Andy Reid. Thank you, actually, this makes everything back, then he was all about fun. Got him. Throw the ball deep. Celebrate your throws deep your seven times larger than the other twelve year olds my soul seamy show is brought to you by dominos or their own line and track your order. Checking the domestic dust bunny. You come to find them hiding under wardrobes next to soaks. Soaks due to some scurry off. What's fascinating about the dust bunny is that although they're not actually sent creatures when the safes. Not only saves people money, but ninety seven percent customer satisfaction rating of us to them. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to Geico is a new brain. Oh, no. It's the dust bunnies. Only natural Prentice on the lung doesn't on his run along. Time for more football and some lovable hijinks hijinks. Are these saints clearly based team in the NFL? They looked like it yesterday 'cause they steamrolled Cincinnati insensitivity. That's what Andy Dalton tends to look like when AJ green is not around. But the same scored on their first nine possessions. And the position has never been played any better than drew Brees is now playing it the precision with which he is throwing the football is so uncommon that there is no stopping this. There is no stopping it with brackets with double coverage. He just keeps throwing the spaces. And it doesn't matter that they're defenders there the way that he is playing. They can obviously beat anybody. He's been brilliant. The office has been amazing. But I don't trust that defense. Look you look at almost every single metric even the pace of Justice ones. The defense for the saints at best. And when it comes to picking who the best team is I like a little bit more well rounded in my in my Gumbo. If you know what I mean? And so I'm going to LA Rams not just because a lot and I'm trying to pander, but because. It's a complete team another very complete team that we are because it has lost twice as the chargers. They're not even in the show today. And I think that Philip rivers is now allowed to officially leave that purgatory where he was down for six straight seasons by eight points with no timeouts at the end of the game and had to go eighty yards and a new replacement has been found. Russell wilson. Congratulations. You know entered Philip rivers purgatory, you know, who has he based in the NFL whose puppy punt there for these saints. Oh, look at hair you have it nineteen points this season. That is how dressed the entire game yesterday. He never bothered to put on his uniform never used his leg. My dream once upon a time with NFL. So easy. There's no pressure. What a strange low bar on dream. Styro- kill storage down celebration worth dependency? It was so much fun here. It was an is to show Cinco done. Well, he is working here against the Zona cardinals. He is always open. That that's triple coverage touch. That's four guys on him and easy. And then he goes back here. And the only thing wrong with this Amine as hammer work is super shoddy. Wait a second. Rob hall, man. Bravo, we have another camera angle. I believe of him just getting parts of heads on these players because he didn't capture the entire celebration. Andy Reid was really upset about it after the game. But I'm here for this kind of fun. This is fifteen yards worth fun. It was really upset. Or was that just kind of the thing you have to do when you get into the press conference. I talked to Tyree can that's on -ceptable but behind closed doors. They can't not laughing behind closed doors. Andy Reid is using that exact Boyce castigate tyreek hill. That's right. These someone set Nundy read when happened here with Andy Reid. Thank you, actually, this makes everything back, then he was all about fun. Got him. Throw the ball deep. Celebrate your throws deep your seven times larger than the other twelve year olds why every other contested there. Seven years old. Video open. Don't indie read clearly throwing footballs against children. Do you think writers owners Mark Davies still putting all the blame on himself? He did an interview after yet another loss from the raiders. And they look awful in every way incompetent and diluted on offense. When Jon Gruden is there at least in part to make your quarterback, look better, and Derek Carr has regressed. So Mark Davis doesn't interview. And he says it's all his fault John grin one to keep Khalil Mack that everything is on him. And so far through nine games, you might as well pointed there because what John Bruton inherited wasn't very good. It's gotten worse at least in part because of how mismanaged that cap giving all of that money to a quarterback who is young but has regrets. You know? What's funny? Does he blame himself? There's only one other person couldn't blame Jon Gruden. But since he's the kind of hard good then. Yes, he should blame himself. It is his fault. The reason they don't have Khalil Mack is because they gave all that money to Derek Carr as the bears better defined as the bears are looking really good with Columbia getting a couple more sacks. Yeah. Yesterday. They chose Derek Carr over Khalil Mack because of the position he plays. But Derek Carr isn't as good at that position as Khalil Mack. Is that his no, no, no, Dan, don't you? Remember Khalil Mack is a raider because he doesn't wanna be here anymore. Well, look at the bright side only nine on the half more years of ruling, you know? No, it's like nine years in five games. Six games. Not even we're past the halfway point on the first year. Question these broadcasts Cleveland their hotel, beautiful south beach, Miami. My soul say me show is brought to you by WalMart light up your Christmas at WalMart dump to play again that look on east eighth or. Do you still on? You give us topics and events. And we question that was a means line that I wanted to keep the joke, and it wasn't going to do it. Right. So let's move on. Do you question liberals offensive fair for the Lakers have won three in a row? They won last night with a late dunk from LeBron a block from Tyson Chandler, but we're gonna show you during a victory against Sacramento. The one place where he can hate on the run. And it's funny. This is not much of an effort here from the Bronx. Thank you for the aero. And then they're on. Well, wait a minute work. It totally works. Guy jumping off the bench the lake jumping off the bench to holler work. And then how's that for jail basketball at the end right there? Ladies and gentlemen, the eighteen hundred nineteen. The liberal set about yourself last night. Oh. On garbage. There's been saying that for years. Do you question? If number four did the surf credit for in this pump. Okay. Number forty does. He play for Fiat. Or does he play for army because army is eight and two and what do we have here? We've got a punting situation. Lafayette is oh, oh, I hate when this happens. Yeah. You just wanted to do one of those punts that was a bit of a squib and instead. That's the best way for that to happen. It's where it hurts. The least of it at you right in the thing. I saw a more impressive block involving army. This weekend was playing against Duke and basketball. A freshman. What world is that a freshman? I always to me. Do your question if these play cold cut everyone by surprise. You may have heard from my father that Arkansas two and eight let's check in with the Arkansas often shall we to quarterback. He's been more consistent after be very consistent. Oh. Wrong that easy. Yeah. Or worse than I'm on come on. You can't compare that to on. What is your sense of history? Perspective. I me prisoner of the moment. That wasn't even the words play that game. That's not true that trying to look at how this was not going to be worse. Crumbles to the ground like he just got shot. It was almost a completion a little bit higher. It just got lodged in the face, Matt. Play the game that finds baking to be very therapeutic see on oh that was not passionate enough. You were in different with your CO. No, you tell us what to watch on television. We tell you intrigued. Tonight on ESPN giants and forty Niners. Bobby Nick Mullins wants to see if that is for real Chris, Cody on the radio show said the smarter thing, which is the NFL should have a loyalty program where if you wanna watch the Rams and the chiefs next week, and you have to watch this game tonight. Let's check in with a reason to watch tonight's game back and make it a couple of one handed catches against Washington. Fourth and twelve the giants have been in a lot of that this third. What a gift. Your call out there and just snagging this shouldn't be one win. When you have those two skill guys that they have in New York. I mean, are you intrigue? See I'm very intrigued not just because I'm a good employee who wants you to watch ESPN programming. But also because this week I've found out that the backup quarterback for the Niners is not named CJ beat ARD. It's better. That's right. That's true. I learned something. How about you you in tree? Oh, si, very intrigued getting Nick meal in these guy. You know, I love when he faces quarterback like eat line money that makes twenty five million. He made four hundred thousand I you know, what the outcome is going to the four hundred thousand dollar guy. It's going to meet the out of the hat price quarterback. That's what he's going to happen. Because that's what happened last time. He pays out face. It had price quarterback. You know, he'd beat the. He'd beat the card. You know, not plan. You know, car was making about forty five million on these guy. You only got about four hundred thousand so if you busy tonight right there, and then you gotta ask for it for any creasing your salary, Nick Milnes. And then you'll never forget. That's right. It's mullins. What you not newly look if beat hard the better than mullah's can be Mu-lin. Fair now. In China, the Shandong golden stars and the Shanghai Sharks jimmer for debt. You remember him? He's out of BYU, we shooter he scored seventy five for China the other day less impressive. When you consider that Peter Jackson had sixty three for the other team. But here is seventy five we're not gonna show you all seventy five or just show you jumpers from long range. Got the most important set. There is Dan here. Jackson got the w how about that way to go Pierre? Jackson Howard, sixty three in China. I mean, are you in tree? Absolutely, not okay. Very good intrigue CC cheating. But I don't know where he is going. He's going to China, you know, he's gonna go try to China. You know, he might scored twenty points in China doing. My prediction letting China. Chinese team and he's gonna come back to the state. You guys leave him alone. That's all they have to that. Thank you for watching. Thanks to me. No Hassett for helping us out today. We'll talk to you on Yanna. Do you think that Carmelo could take doing way to China if he's going? Really?

Here's a clip from sports wars right now. Let's get to liz so this is really cool because i've been i wouldn't say it's fair to say. I've been trying thing to get a liaison for years but i've been having liz on my list at least to get on for years knowing. I wanted to get her on the show. You can absolutely and you should check her out on twitter. It's spelled allies e. l. a. underscore f f she does a fantastic. I mean fantastic job for yahu. She has a story that just came out that we're gonna dive into. It's all upside fantasy football team which i love because liz. Let's be honest. That's how you win like you guys with upside to cash in for you. If you're in a competitive league that's the difference hitting those upside i players but also keeping balance and while while constructing a roster in mind could you can't you can't draft the sean jackson in every around right or you're gonna get banged so you have to kind of think about who are floor players that will mesh well with your ceiling targets but ceiling targets are so much more fun because i think i mean i know ross. You're like a dad and a husband so in life. Maybe we have to be responsible but in fantasy the ball a little bit of fun and go all upside right and i just have to say you went to princeton right dude yeah yeah yeah so i went to brown. Oh does it. I hope it. Does it bother you that you couldn't get in to like a really good. Ivy schools the only only if it bothers you because you spent all that time eating clubs in princeton while we were actually so wait a minute liz auger no first of all. Did you play a sport or something and i was actually a competitive figure skater all through like elementary school junior high in high school well <hes> i didn't go to university of delaware. Which is the school. That has the best like figure skating program. I also played volleyball but i'm five two as most most people now have tiny person and so i wasn't a particularly good center so college. Volleyball wasn't really set up for me. No pun intended or so i do that was awesome so i i my point of asking that was did you get into brown based solely on your academic merit. I would say yes s. Recruited athlete i did not i did not apply as an athlete now holy cow so just let the record show that that means liz is definitely a thousand percent smarter than i am because there is no chance that i would have gotten into the prince and are any of the ivy leagues without football so that tells you that liz is very very bright among her other wonderful qualities. That's awesome liz. Gimme gimme the background give your listener is the backer and that's the most important thing we'll get into the fantasy stuff but i always liked to personalise my guest. I are so i so i know you went to brown but go before that. Where'd you grow up. How'd you get into fantasy football and how'd you get the gig allen. I'll make it quick. I a group in chicago. My mom was a single mom. <hes> since the time i was thirteen months. I'm the only kid so is the her and i but she was out trying to make a living so my grandfather who who was the embodiment of the carl sandburg poem if anyone knows carl sandberg <unk> bit of a reference but clearly i'd like to read as as we've already discuss because the browns step but like world war two vet grizzled guy that worked on the railroads he was kind of my primary caregiver because my mom was busy so he was the guy hi who was you know taking me to to girl scouts into figure skating and to any of the camps and stuff that i was in and so i ended up learning all the stuff that if were speaking in gender normative terms like boy would learn and <hes> supports became a huge giant chicago sports fan and he unfortunately fortunately when i went away really wanted me to go to north western so that i would stay close. He was really really like to stay close baby state and i was like no i wanna go out east. I want to discover cover. What all of this is about. I can't say not brown so i went out and he unfortunately passed away the first semester of freshman year and i came home minutes away to grieve. I just started watching. I turned on the t._v. In the bears were playing the vikings and the bears lost because that's kind of how they do injured originally and and <hes> i then as a way degrees started watching every single football game not just the bears games and that became a tradition for me best word a couple of years. I'm dating this this guy. He's in this thing called the fantasy football league. He says to me sheepishly. One sunday morning and i was broke like i was straight out of college had no money was waiting tables trying to figure out my life and he had something called the red zone channel and he said do you mind if we watched this all day on sunday and like kind of hang out on the sofa uh and i was like are you kidding me. Are we ordering wings or chinese. Like what are we doing here. That's awesome. Let's totally watch football all day so i ended up like kind of secretly managing co managing his fantasy football team to a victory to a super bowl victory next year i wanted my own team didn't wanna share don't like to share so i okay <hes>. There happened to be a spot in the league. I took it. I won the super bowl that year. When the super bowl the next year then one day i was watching fantasy football live on which i am now a cast member which blows my mind and thought why why are there no women in the space. I could do this i should do. I enjoy this so. I started a blog called. The fantasy football girl dot com created a real life contact content schedule be logs put myself made it a job like made it a third job and then also started a podcast started a twitter feed and just hit like just was grinding on it and really trying to learn from others and engage with others and i did that for about four years before scout notice to me signed me to <hes> a season-long deal and then yahu paid attention in poached me away from scout out and niamh now entering my fifth season with yahoo fantasy liz. That's amazing first of all. Both your mom and your grandpa sound awesome absolutely awesome. I'm just picturing your grandpa taking you you know to girl scouts and all all that stuff and god bless him man that is that's a that's a man's man right there so that that is awesome that that really really touched me and then as for everything else that is really interesting and cool. I guess my question was when you went to brown and then you graduated. What did you think you were going to do. What did you major in you guys. Don't even have major no majors no grades yeah. We have concentrations ross kirk. I am so i will admit my first semester not just because of my grandfather's passing but just in general like i was a basic tom girl from the midwest to showed up wearing birkenstocks like i knew nothing about rich kids about east coast. Life brown was very difficult for me to culturally adjust to but i really wanted to study a whole bunch of stuff so the front my freshman year i just kind of took everything from art history to the history of the vietnam war to theater classes and dabbled and then i ended up deciding to major in theater and linguistics six my mom was not going to allow me to go to college just meter theater so she was like baby you pick something else and i speak spanish so i majored in linguistics and when i graduated i came out to l. a. wanting to have a career in entertainment and was waiting tables and trying to be an actress at the same time booked a couple of shows and was working eventually actually as an actress but it just wasn't you know i had my health insurance. I if you go on i._m._d._b. I booked plenty of things but it just wasn't fulfilling and i wanted to own something creatively blamed myself and that became the fantasy football blog. You are awesome heard about you from other people but you are. You're like legitimately awesome. This is so cool i'm loving. You're a go getter on so many different levels absolutely awesome. I'm fired up even even more than i already was. This is fantastic. What did you graduate from brown by the way and i graduated in a we'll talk about it off line but you graduated ahead of got it got it. We're keeping your age a secret. I guess getting mid thirties okay. I'm well. I i just turned forty so yes. I am ahead of you so we did probably did not overlap so that everything about that is awesome. I want to dive into into your all upside team because i think it's a great article two right before we dive into that though speaking of yahoo you leaders.

With upside people that pay off so let's get into it liz your quarterback jameis winston and i think that one most people can kind of understand right you know bruce arians no risk it no biscuit like that that one makes accents to me. I think you're running. Backs are interesting leonard for net as well as dion lewis. I will definitely was not expecting dion lewis as is an offside with all the derrick henry talk so let's dive in your running backs for net and lewis and and i know i read your story but sell the listeners and they should read you just story by the way as well just check out liz. I told you on twitter twitter handle. She posted up there. You can find it but i want to get a little bit from you liz as to why for orna lewis as your high upside dudes so part of the conceit of this article right is that the upside is relative to a player's a._d._p. Inability ability to return on investment right so when you're looking at leonard fournette and you're looking at and i get it. I get the burnt complaints. I owned him last year to write like you've got character concern concern. You've got your ability concerns. He's attached to a bluff offense in theory. Although i i am optimistic about flip coming in and maybe energizing a lot of what happened what could happen happen this year but for nets range of possible outcomes is an rb one. It has been every year since his rookie year. Which is why he's continually disappointed in. Why everyone everyone is so upset so when i look at his situation what competition does yeah we really are. We worried about a livelihood. I don't think so right like there's no t._j. Yeldan elden. There's no carlos hyde. Those guys were allowed to walk in free agency. Now they've added alfred blue. L. for blue is averaged under four point -o yards for carrying four of his last five seasons and then they used a fifth round pick on this while armstead guy who's already had a couple of dings to in terms of his durability so we know he's going to be a workhorse of course good luck finding one of those in the n._f._l. Something someone who's not working in a platoon you've got him. There and i also think when you look at this defense that jag that the jaguars have he last year they disappointed yeah. We knew they were gonna request. Regress probably not as much as they did twenty eighteen but i think they're gonna bounce back. They've made some improvement and and so this figures to be pretty conservative offense that wants to establish the run shout out to evans silva right whether or not you want whether or not that's exciting in the modern day the n._f._l. This team seems very much built around making leonard fournette work and i think when you look at those range of possible outcomes and we know he is one of the most powerful one healthy running backs available in the league when at his current a._d._p. Shoot don't tell me this guy can't produce rb two numbers. I'm in mm-hmm yeah i would say. Is this his third year fourth year at any rate. I'm trying to look it up but at any rate i think he he realizes that if he ever want to get a second contract that one way or the other the time is now so i'm kind of with you on for net for all all the reasons just mentioned i called their game on thursday night against the eagles and it's only four nets third year but he he's eligible for a contract extension after this year if he has a big one so i like the logic there for sure especially on the backups and or lack thereof and i and i love his motivation as well. What about <hes> dion lewis. That's not a name. I've heard a lot that one kind of surprised me now so so the dion lewis logic is obviously i mean i'd be lying if i said it wasn't tied to derrick henry availability this season yes derrick henry came on on week fourteen just in time to win a bunch of people fantasy championships but his usage was suspect will dion lewis lewis was used much more frequently early on in the season and and i think people have forgotten about his ability to both run inside inbetween tackles and also catch passes right. We're only thinking of him as a pass catching back but i think in p._r. Friendly formats that also buoy him because when marcus mariota he may not even end up the starter right reading some reports what's on wrote a world that seemed murky about whether he tannahill are like duffer sure start sure it's probably marcus mariota but could there be a changing of the guard. Would anyone be surprised by that. No part of that is because marcus mariota can stay healthy. His mechanics are met also ryan. Tannehill likes to check down that is good for dion lewis and when you look at the online online retailer luan urine special is right <hes> with taylor the one out for the first month. I'm guessing that arthur smith is going to tell his fragile q._b. To check down a whole bunch is get that ball out that also is a place where dion lewis can excel so again part of this is due to his eighty p._m. He's going in the thirteenth round. What else are you doing in the thirteenth route especially noting a._j. Brown we. We're not sure he's a rookie. We're also not sure about his availability. Delaney walker is still is one hundred percent percent right now. You've got adam humphreys which admittedly competes in terms of yardage with <hes> expected yardage with dion lewis but i think at the running think back position in the thirteenth round you wanna throw a dart lewis could definitely produce rb three minimal numbers thought it was was funny by the way liz it's because he's suspended for the first four games. The titans played he didn't start the game but then he played like the whole first half taylor lewan in the preseason opener against the eagles which i thought was a little bit weird because all these teams are has indicated there guys hurt but like like you'll have your best off into lyman play because he's suspended for the first four weeks like what if you tears and achilles earn s._e._a._l. This thought i get it but i thought that was is interesting but absolutely their offense of lying is in is it nearly as good with him out and then by the way what if they suffer an injury at tackle one one of the first four games then that's when things really get bad when you get multiple injuries or in this case it suspension at the same position most teams. The next dude in is usually pretty good. That's kind of who i was usually like not the guy you want starting but he's not gonna lose the game for the guy after that. That guy can lose the game for you and that guy can be a major major problem so i like. I like your logic there. Let's get to your receivers this dante moncrieff who i can absolutely understand and marquez valdez gambling which is interesting. Is there enough there for marquez. Vow skittling to eat opposite devante items liz that is an excellent point and that is the biggest question because it's very it could be very much that the packers three main players are aaron rodgers aaron jones if he stays healthy and davante adams so what's left i. I'm not sure but i do know that n._b._s. Is probably the most athletic of these receivers. He's going to have some big some big game. If you're playing basketball go ahead and roll out what boggles my mind and why i wanted to include them in this article all is the g._m._o. Is being drafted ahead of him that to me is such simplistic plug and play rational jimoh. Who is the only reason he's going to be. The the big slack is because he's not explosive. He can't make separation and up on the outside to take the number two spot m._v._s. find you a man who can do both right right like he can definitely work outside and in he did that last year. He and rogers have been working on their timing. When aaron rodgers starts talking up a player and we're looking in a post taylor done article life lifespan here i am paying attention and so i m b s has huge breakout potential and again. He's so damn cheap like why are you not reach your you. Don't even have to read from you will fall in your lap and the upside is there. He earned his quarterback troy. She's been prioritized by the coaching staff and also just for stats. If people like these he caught twenty three of twenty eight catchable targets be at the slot and also brought down fourteen of seventeen balls when working on the outside so his versatility is great drama. Allison has not been particularly durable or dependable so i think you could see an expanded role especially with randall cobb no longer part of that offense and those targets being fed at least partially to n._b._s. Find somebody that calls the packers wide receivers m._v._s._a. and g._m. That's my that's my advice for everybody out there about dante moncrieff with the steelers. I mean i have been on this. Take since april so it's catching got part of the reason i included it was because i am doing a little bit of that fantasy football writer. This was my flag. I sort of thing so i just look at people are like liking james washington now right because of his first preseason action where he hooked up with rudolf his former quarterback and i think he had a nice is forty four plus yard bomb from josh dobbs and like the first opening moments of the of last week's preseason action but i just feel like moncrieff on krief is a red zone weapon and this team is going to need to score some damn touchdowns <unk> big. Ben is going to need <unk>. Okay we could talk about vance mcdonald. Donald every damn year advanced mcdonald's supposed year. I liked dante mockery. He is a big body. He caught seven touchdowns with andrew luck. Two years ago in luck was healthy. I like the he has a nice quarterback. Big bend like the big ben's been talking him up and he's probably not going to have a ton of targets every week right. This isn't the guy that your high high volume guy. This is your high value target guy because a lot of those are going to be in the end zone tight end time liz and this this guy <hes> there's a lot of height mark andrews tight end for the baltimore ravens a lot of hype for a guy by the way that was a fourth round pick the same aim years they had a first round pick tight in but man i read the baltimore writers and they're saying he was by far the best player in camp so far which was interesting. I remember him in the u._s. Army bill. I called that game for n._b._c. and he was excellent. People are all into mark andrews has it caught brought up to his a._d._p. Yet lewis and starting to i don't like it. It is starting to the buzz will because of what you said right. It's not just that beat writers. There's are are saying that he's the most explosive playmaker encamp they've been saying that throughout spring and summer practices that's the drumbeat that people talk about it is becoming deafening happening. The buzz is mounting. This is also a converted wide receiver right <hes> a high percentile spark athlete and he was used. I used in college to bail out his q._b. Numerous times so i like what he's doing last year. He flashed radiate a let's see two grabs over sixty yards last year which is incredible for a rookie and i look at this receiving corps and there's a lot of potential miles boykin who i like to call kenny golladay two point oh <hes> he has potential marquees brown could do something if he get on the field otherwise though if i'm looking at the players who could bail out a explosive admittedly but quarterback who struggles with accuracy. I think a big bodied athletic tight end is exactly kalihi what lamar jackson needs and that's why you're seeing all these reports about the growing chemistry so i have him projected for fifty three grabs six hundred seventy eight yards and five touchdowns when you look at those double digit rounds where he is still available especially at a position. It's volatile as china. I'm taking it. Her name is liz loza. You need need to check out her stories over at yahoo including the all upside fantasy football team if you want to read more she.

Twenty seventh two thousand seven mark richt georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of municipal stadium in jacksonville florida in just thirty thirty minutes his bulldogs will kick off against the florida gators and for once richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is. I'm really in national championship contention but for richt. This is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In jacksonville the the city. That's hosted pretty much every florida georgia game since the nineteen thirties jacksonville is supposed to be a neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to richt it's in florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral. Rick thinks as he looks up <unk> at a sea of orange and blue gator fans. The gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given florida a huge mental edge and made the buttoned-up georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something something to get some fire in his squad's belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked rick lake in seven seasons at georgia richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. Who's quiet decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him. It's simple you win with integrity you lose with integrity. It's the georgia way. That's what makes this right now. Now the most off the wall moment of mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramp locker room stands before or his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak. He tells them you don't get a celebration penalty. After our first score you'll all be doing early morning. Runs runs welcome to jacksonville and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and georgia has lost as we said fifteen the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with georgia facing third and goal at the florida one yard line nine star running back no sean marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of lyman in front of him marino up attack jour-jour touch. There and here comes the entire team. Watch this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen. Thank jamir on this one. I can't believe this was playing. This was absolutely absolutely plan. Ric decided that he has got to try to find his t._v. He's tired of having the psychological advantage. He's is willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every georgia player on the sideline russia's the field penalty flags fly in every direction the c._b._s. This cameras swing to the other side line anticipating reaction from the gators. Tim tebow florida's phenomenally talented sophomore. Quarterback looks confused. Sodas tvos coach urban meyer meyer is frantically waving his florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in happily and knows his plan worked the gators her rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leap stafford marino touch that the bulldogs match every tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to thirty for the first time in years. The florida georgia game lives up to the hype a rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade. It is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator stomp richt is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban meyer tim tebow abo- and the entire florida team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge that was just a preview of sports wars to hear the rest of the story subscribed to sports wars on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now.

If the answer is yes. Don't wait another minute. Pick up your mobile device and subscribe to Lighthouse Hockey podcasts from espy nation today are courteous and efficient hosts are ready to serve all of your islander needs and worries. Lighthouse Hockey PODCASTS for New York islanders fans. Welcome back to the Kirsten Joe show presented by espionage, an and big blue. I am Joe deleon joined by hurtful as always your go-to source for New, York giants, analysis and breakdowns were currently with the off season. If you haven't been tuning in so far, already were into the second episode where we are analyzing every single giants position group. Last show. He talked about the quarterback room. We talked about WHO's going to be Daniel Jones backup. He missed out on that sure to go and check that episode out, but today we are on to the next position group, the running backs the goal of these episodes, though is to fill you in on, not just the guys that we know are predominant big. Big Name players, but filling out the entire depth chart, the guys that came in through free agency guys that were drafted undrafted free agents, all of the names to be aware of as well as talking about potential cuts, guys that are going to be on the practice squad, and maybe some surprise players that might not be sticking around come the end of the preseason, so the running back position is obviously one that is of great interest to New York giants, fans, and of great interest to us, considering the giants have one of the best young running backs on their roster that being saquon Barkley one of the most elusive running backs that we've seen in a very long time in the NFL. A home run hitting type player, and we know for a fact Chris, that he has the potential weakened in week out to go for a hundred to one hundred and fifty yards, rushing and be completely dominant player, barring the open rushing lanes. So this is a really interesting situation. Though, because now we have a completely different offense coordinator. We have Jason. Garrett, who has produced some highly productive running backs, some odd highly productive, running back some not so big name guys in washed players like Darren McFadden so is it? Is it too crazy to say to ourselves here? Hey, we're pretty optimistic coming into what we're going to get from saquon Barkley in this first year in a new offense of system. saquon Barkley is one of those rare running backs. Where if he's healthy, he is going to produce yet he. Even as a rookie, the giants had one of the worst run blocking offensive lines in the NFL, but Barkley still produced because he just has that rare combination of. Top End Agility and top end explosiveness to go with. Rare power. This has been covered pretty much. Sense Penn State is just. A Rare athlete! And I think that will allow him. You know even if the offensive line isn't as good as we hope, it is, even if the. Running game doesn't exactly fit him. Which is something I? Want to get to in a little bit as long as he is able to find a crease occasionally kind of like Barry Sanders, he's going to produce since the hiring of Jason Garrett I could probably count a hundred times on this show that we've said the words Air Coryell and lately we've been ramping up these conversations when talking about the schematics of a new system, and it's just constantly is what we're bringing up when we have to talk about the offense and I can tell you right now. Folks if you're sick of hearing US talk about the air, coryell will too bad we have. Have to keep talking about it, because it is so important with discussing the usage of a lot of these players, and how things will look for them, but in talking about the court Allen as much as we've. We've hyped up the efforts that it that this scheme makes to throw the ball US deep passing concepts to pick up bigger chunk plays the usage of tight ends. It's worth noting Chris that the original Air Coryell with with Don coryell. He wasn't afraid to run the ball. It was a key component of the offense. It doesn't mean that you have to throw the ball forty five fifty times a game just because we keep talking about. The passing game what it means for the passing game, it does not denote the running game. It doesn't take away from the fact that it needs ineffective running game to completely and fully operate so saquon Barkley I think it's worth noting that his usage is going to be a lot different than what we've seen with these with those two first years of Pat Shurmur and the one thing that we always said frustration is that when the run game started to sputter and not really work out, it became second at eight, or if it was second. Second in long they're the giants would run the ball and it was overly predictable Pat Shurmur was so willing to bail on it, and then throw the ball forty thirty five times, and that would lead to a lot of offensive problems, but now we might actually see some consistency and a willingness to continue to stick to the running game until it achieves some sort of success. Yeah, and that has it. That's something we have heard from from folks who watch cover the cowboys. The Jason. Garrett is not afraid to run the ball he has. Shown a willingness to honestly at times. Run his running backs into the ground. They did that with. DeMarco Murray before he left, they have. Given Ezekiel Elliott a ton of carries to the point where cowboys fans end, analysts were actually saying. Maybe do something other than run. Run Past Pot. Hopefully, maybe he's. Kind of learned to balance that out a little bit more, but I don't think he is going to abandon the run, and as you said before the Air Coryell, the running the ball is a definite part of that offensive scheme, the it's based around wide receivers and using the outside receivers to more or less stress. More or less stretch the field and pulled defenders away from the line of scrimmage, force them to respect those vertical routes. And if fewer defenders around the line of scrimmage that just makes it easier on the offensive line. So assuming that works, there should be room for Barclay to do what he does best and make defenders Miss, turn a hopefully good running play into a great running play I some additional context, though if you look back at these really good cowboys running back, I think that's what you have to connect to. Even though Jason Garrett wasn't always calling plays for the Spanish. The head coach of the Dallas Cowboys? If you recall being giants Fan, the amount of times that the giants were gashed by guys like Demarco Murray even at times Darren McFadden and then eventually Ezekiel Elliott. It seems that there's always been some form of a dominant running back. That was able to take the load, and then also having some additional guys to. Bounce off of and get some change of pace from the starter so I. Honestly think that this this move for saquon Barkley with the new offensive scheme is really gonNA help him especially with adjustments to the offensive line. Continue onto this trajectory that we really thought we were going to get from him after his rookie year, so in addition to that, though if you if you happen to notice this past week. There were comments made by Kyle Brandt who's an analyst for good. Morning football on NFL network. And while they tend to have some pretty crazy takes. He made a point in saying that he believes this next season. saquon Barkley will be big name running back the guy that is going to have a tremendous output to the point he will lead the giants to the playoffs as optimistic optimistic as we both would love to be Chris. It seems like that's a little bit crazy, but can we at least say though that if Sikwan is used properly? He's the type of running back. That can get you victories with good performances. Yeah, I think that's definitely fair to say I've I don't want to put the expectations for the giants this year at the play offs. Advanced aren't GonNa want to hear that, but this year schedule is just an absolute beast it. They are going to be facing either a top defense. or a top offense almost every single week end. This is. This is going to be a year in which maybe the giants do play better, but it might not show up on their final record, and we have seen saquon Barkley have great games the first two weeks of the twenty one thousand nine season. Barkley had really good performances. But in the end is, something would go wrong. The giants were unable to have a play, basically flawless game. Even, though Barclay would have over one hundred yards yet. Score touchdowns near the first. The first week averaged almost eleven yards a carry the second week against a really good buffalo defense. He averaged almost six yards a carry it really kind of. Didn't matter. The giants still lost end. It had nothing to do with Barclay was just everything else falling down on them and just not being able to keep up with the teams they were playing. Hopefully. They don't have the same kind of breakdowns I? Think it's fair to say that we can expect a great year from Barclay. I'm not sure whether or not we can. Say whether or not the rest of the? Team will play up to his level I'm in the same boat with you. There Chris and I think if you look at the context of Kyle, Brandt made comments in. Connecting Barclay to Christian McCaffrey, and if you look at McCaffrey last year, he was phenomenal. There were games that Christian McCaffrey one for the Carolina Panthers, but you have to take into account that things weren't working well for him. At the quarterback position behind him, he couldn't control what was going on defensively so I think it's a little bit overly aggressive and optimistic to say that Saquon Barkley having awesome years enough to carry them to the playoffs. I think if we're being entirely realistic and folks that is our job. Here is to be realistic, and if if you don't like being realistic, and you want us to tell, tell you that. The giants are GonNa. Make the playoffs then. This right show for you, but We're trying to stay realistic here and if we're being realistic. They can't control the fact that the defense is still very very young in various spots. They're still. We still don't know what the identity of this team is going to be. We don't know if all of these moves and new personnel, guys and new coaches coming in our what is necessary to take the step forward. We could find out that some of these new faces aren't what the giants needed, but I think that there is promise I think that we can expect progression and a step forward, but not A. Playoff berth just yet. There are too many. There are too many good teams in the NFC east for us to release. Say that they're going to win it. Yeah and the giants I think might find themselves in a similar position as the panthers where they have a player. Playing at. A very high level, but there are just like the. Her just other teams that are more complete that are playing at a higher level over all. The. Giants had a hard time keeping up with the eagles. Last year end they were incredibly ravaged by injuries. By the end of the season. We saw the cowboys collapsed by the end of the year, but Dak. Prescott was playing at basically an MVP's level for the first half of the year. I wouldn't put. A. An improvement. I wouldn't put it past the Redskins to show a marked improvement over last year as well. I don't WanNa say the park can't carry the giants, but they are. They are in a tough division, and they are facing very tough schedule, and just before we move onto the depth behind Barkley. I do want to say one interesting thing to keep an eye on this year is going to be how chasing Gary Uses Saquon Barkley. Barkley is a different kind of back than the ones that Garrett has used before saquon Barkley in Ezekiel Elliott are both excellent running backs, but they are excellent in very different ways. They're the same size about. They're about six foot end somewhere between two twenty five to thirty. They both have very good vision. They both have the ability to break off chunk place. But. Elliott is much more of a running back. Who will take who will maximize what is blocked for him? He if he cannot. Break a big play. He will get what he can. Barkley is I compared him to bury sanders before, and that is a I think a very good comparison for his running style. He has very good vision, but he also has. An extreme willingness. To trust his athleticism. To create magic if there's only three or four yards blocked for him rather than pick up those three or four yards, he will try to bounce back to a cutting lane. He will try to make or or five defenders miss in the whole, and he will have the longest yard runs. You will ever see. And I'm going to be interested to see how. Garrett adapts his scheme to Barclay because he always seems to gravitate back to a between the tackles man gap power, running scheme, which plays very well to guys like DeMarco Murray and Ezekiel Elliott. But Berkeley has always been best playing off. Tackle outside zone where. He can get more room to operate where he doesn't have to make defensive, tackle or a linebacker whoever miss in a phone booth. He's best when he get. He can get access to that open field, so it's I. Think it's going to be interesting to see whether or not we see the. Giants stick with AIDS Zoning Scheme or If Garrett kind of. Implements that. Between. The tackles power scheme that he always seems to favor a surprising move in free agency. This past off season was the giants signing veteran running back Dion Lewis. That neither of US are a lot of people didn't really expect the giants to do considering their needs at a number of other positions. Instead they decided to bring in a veteran back a guy that played multiple seasons with the titans, the Patriots and the browns hovering around that thirty eight mark, so he's not the same guy that he was early on in his career. He's not doesn't have that same level of Pop, but he still is a guy that's been around in the League for a very very long time ago. That it's it's very experienced in has a veteran presence to him. Dion Lewis though for just talking about what he was used for. Any time with these various teams, he was primarily used as a a multidimensional back a a receiving back, getting a lot of touches in receptions as well as being a change of pace runner I feel like we haven't really seen Louis primary running back, but that's exactly what the giants were looking for. We talked about at the beginning of the off season, how the giants needed an additional piece to round out the running back room, because Goldman was not getting the job done to some extent in right now. If Barclay is gassed, come a third down or a third down and long you have Dion Lewis to lean on or if you want to pass. In just get a bit of A. Change of direction in throw off an opposing defense. You can take Lewis out there, and you can do a couple of different things that saquon is not as privy to and I think if the. Guy's fans will want to get idea of how Dan Lewis be used. I think we could take a look at how Felix Jones was used. Back when he was with the cowboys back, you know some. Pretty much between. Two Thousand Eight two, thousand, nine and twenty twelve. For the that whole period Jason Garrett was calling, the plays for the cowboys and Jones was pretty was the primary backup, either to Marion Barber or DEMARCO. Murray. And primarily used as a Scott back. He was never a great running back he was. Reasonably effective he had one year where he averaged five point nine yards per attempt, but usually somewhere around. Four. Four and a half to three and a half to four and a half yards per attempt. But he was always a much more effective receiver, and that has always kind of been Dion Lewis game, so I think they could be looking at him in that capacity. Maybe the giants could look to us to back sets end. Actually used Barkley Lewis as receivers, or perhaps they could have him there to kind of push wing allman in receiving aspect of the game, because just as a one cut runner winged almonds fine. He's not going to be explosive, but he can. Pick up what is blocked for him? But his, he has never been just a receiving weapon and I. Think. They might be wanting to. kind of I don't want to emphasize that area of the running back position, but if they get backup receiver, who has upside as are sorry, a back running back who has upside as receiver I don't think they particularly care who it is so long as they have one certainly and I think the the move to bring in Dion Lewis was just adding additional heads to the running back room, trying to fill things out some additional competition for weighing allman competition for a young player like Jonathan Hillman. Who we saw contribute a little bit, but this does. Ask The question of what does this mean for Wayne Gelman? Who has been the backup running back for the past two seasons behind Saquon Barkley. This past year we saw him step in when Barkley was hurt early on, and really shine getting one hundred yards rushing, but after that game. We didn't see anything from Gov we. We didn't see much of a contribution and we really needed him to step up with Barclay out he. He was dealing with some injuries. He was not fully healthy. He missed a lot of time and I think that's part of the reason why Gettleman in the new coaching staffer, saying well, do we really trust having men on the field, and that was part of the reason why they brought in Dion Lewis, so the the question that does come from this though is should be worried. Should he be worried that he is? In quote on the hot seat as the backup running back. Yeah I would definitely say so. Yeah. He has the current regime. has absolutely nothing invested in him? He was a jerry reese. Pick so that I think automatically puts him on the hot seat with. Dave Gettleman, but also this is third head coach in three years. He's going into his fourth year. When he was drafted, the giants head Ben. mcadoo is their head coach, and then the last two years ahead Pat Shurmur so. He really has to I think. Impress the coaching staff to keep his job. He I think he is going to have to come out and. Soundly established himself as the second best running back on the roster. Yeah I think his game actually could translate very well to what Jason Garrett likes from running back, but if he can't have that consistency if he can't show that, he is a well rounded enough back to contribute on all downs. Pass protect. Pass catch on third downs. Pick up what is blocked for him and maybe a little bit more. I think if he can't show that if he can't show up side of improvement. I think this could very well could be his last year. As a giant Goldman has to be the biggest name to talk about here that already early on might not be back. Come the end of the preseason, but other players that we still have to talk about what this running back group is Jonathan Hillman. who was a rookie last season? He played locally at rutgers for his final year. Also at Boston College and Hillman was primarily a practice squad guy, but when Saquon Barkley wind down, he came in, and also then when Gaughman came down, he was actually. The lead running back in a couple of games, primarily one game where he did get a a decent amount of touches, nothing crazy, but he did get the ball he did get a couple carries didn't do anything that really shocked the world, but we were able to see what he can do in a step in star play type of a situation. That being said though it did we see enough to really be thinking positively on Hillman in, does he? Do? We think that he can progress into somewhat of a contributor beyond being the third or fourth guy on the roster? Well, we know the giants liked what they saw from Hillman in the preseason. Unfortunately, he really has to work on his ball security because I think that's what. People mostly remember from him from the regular season having two fumbles losing two fumbles. In thirty rushing attempts. I think we saw some ability from him in the preseason saw him be able to make sharp cuts. Have, some pretty good explosiveness pickup yardage. But If you can't hang onto the ball had. You'RE NOT GONNA. Get too many chances especially as A. As an undrafted running back, who's kind of at the back end of the roster? You're not gonNA get a whole lot of chances so I think the first thing he asked to show is that he had he can hang onto the ball and they can actually rely on him. Last player that was added to this running back unit was Devan leak. A rookie undrafted out of Maryland six foot. Two fifteen is is listed size, and to keep things simple with leak I, don't think he really supplies any competition for the running back role, but rather competition as a returner on kicks and punts if. If you don't know anything about leak. He was actually awarded. I believe the best return specialist in the big ten. Because of his capabilities to be a big play type player on special teams. He also had a very high yards per carry average around seven did not get a ton of production at Maryland, but does have some I have has some explosiveness and I think it's pretty safe to say that his contribution would primarily be in a special teams role, not really competing for one of the back end spots as the bottom and running backs on the on the on the giants. Yeah and anyone who is coming in undrafted Kinda the back into the roster at. They're going to have to make the mark on special teams. and. It will be an interesting competition I think between leak end. Probably primarily Korey Coleman who is? Coming off a tornado yell, but showed himself to be. Potentially one of the better return return men in the NFL. At least when he joined the giants two years ago. That's going to be an interesting competition and. It'll be worth watching to see if the giants decide to keep Coleman for his potential explosiveness, receiver and returner, or if they tried to go for leak as a just more affordable option. Younger doesn't have the same injury history. And you know maybe as potential backup third running back option for saquon Barkley the last two guys that we have to talk about here is the fullbacks currently on the giants roster because you can't talk about fullbacks when you're talking about running backs, because they are still players that are working at this position, the two guys that are currently here. The incumbent Elijah Penny and George asked analyzer. Penny is. Honestly the favorite to be the returner at fullback, because of his role on special teams the way that he can contribute on special teams. I think as a personal protector. That's a really big key when you have a fullback, but also the fact that he has been used before in various offensive situations where he's call, it passes. He's run the ball, but. Not to a large productive sense, because again, he's a fullback. You're not really going to focus your your offense around fullback usage in twenty twenty, but still if we're being realistic here, Elijah Penny has to be the most likely starter in returner for this fullback position, because the really can only be one fullback. Yeah the IT. You're just not gonNA see an a modern NFL team. Carry more than one fullback. It's increasingly rare to see them. Carry any fullbacks. Jason Garrett does seem to like the fullback position he he always seems to like having one on the roster Yup just in case short yardage situations whatever I think pennies ability to. Catch the ball out of the BACKFIELD TO BE A. Potential contributor, maybe not get a ton of carries, but quick fullback handoff. Maybe. Run Angle, route or something like that out of the Backfield A. CHECK DOWN option. I think that probably does give him the advantage here. We're going to wrap up with debating the possible backup running back. WHO GETS more touches out of Louis or Goldman, and then wrap things up with a discussion on WHO's going to get cut out of the running backs on the giants roster, but before we get to that folks, we're gonNA. Take a really short commercial break. They've seen us through a huge revolution. In how we think about content, it's just changed everything about the world of entertainment. I'm Ronnie. Mola and I'm Peter. Kafka and we're hosting the new season Atlanta the giants, the netflix effect. We're exploring all things. NETFLIX's by talking to the people who started the company Netflix changed how we watch, and what wash so we want to find out where Netflix's epic and how they plan to win the streaming wars. They've outmaneuvered everyone in Hollywood for fifteen years and. Mike S. is now keep outmanoeuvring everyone. This is land of the giants the Netflix's effect from recode and the VOX media podcast network the First Episode Jobs June twenty third listening, subscribe on Apple, podcasts, spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Goldman Lewis that is going to be a big question hovering over this giants running back room, who is going to be the guy who gets more touches behind Saquon Barkley, who is going to be the primary change of pace Chris if you had to pick one of the two guys, who are you picking to be the Go-to? In a spot situation player to get the ball, I happen to like Goldman I think he is, he's not exciting. He's not funny, not not spectacular, but as long as he's healthy, and as long as the offensive line gives him something to work with. He can be steady the other. There's a reason why they called him the Wayne train at Clemson because he kinda kept the offense on schedule. I think he can be in this offense, a complete enough running back to. Back up saquon Barkley without having to close the playbook any. And I think if he can show enough of an understanding of the offense and show himself to be well rounded enough as I said in the first half be able to pass protect reliably to be a good enough receiver. Yeah, I think I might give the nod to him. Just because we have seen Dion Lewis trending down, he is. He's right at thirty. He's off disappointing year with the Tennessee Titans end. It's not like the titans couldn't run the ball last year, so I think. Decline in production even though. The, titans could obviously run the ball. They actually got better at quarterback. As the year went on the better at receivers, the year went onto. That should have made Lewis's job easier and made him more effective so the fact that he kind of trended downwards to me as That's a red flag. The fact that? The new coaching staff in Dave, gettleman made the decision to bring him in, and he has familiarity with this coaching staff. Those are really big marks in his favor. But I. I think if Goldman is able to show himself to be a better more reliable, more complete. I think he will get the nod for me. I think the Dion Lewis is going to be the primary second running back for usage in getting touches just because of his skill set and what they want. With a backup remaining back and I think that even though Louis like you said has been trending downward a little bit. They'll at least be able to get. Some possession plays out of him. They can throw the ball and you know that he has the hands to make those grabs now. Does he still have that same bursts and explosiveness in spaces? He did when he was younger. No, he definitely does not. He's around thirty years old so. So he's not going to be able to play at that same level. He's not going to be as fast as I can be. As quick. You're still going to get a consistent guy. You're going to get a guy that knows what he needs to do. On every single play, he's not. GonNa, make any mistakes and I'm not saying that Goldman does make those mistakes, but I think that would. This giants offense needs from a second back. Is What Dion. Lewis provides wrapping things up Chris. We need to discuss who we think is going home. So being realistic. There's only to be one full back on this roster and three in a very rare occasion for running backs, but if we're picking three is and one fullback, who do you think is going to be cut I think it will probably be. I'm pretty sure. We agree on this one I've Hillerman leak I. Think is going to beat out leak for the return job. And yet the potential contributions on offense at receiver out the giants do need a receiver who can stretch the field vertically, and Coleman will get the chance to. Do that Hillman. I I'm not sure if he's going to show himself to be consistent enough to beat out. Gaughman in Lewis and then. I probably asked him as the fullback. WHO GOES AT THE I think probably keep penny. Just because you know, he might not be A. Dynamic weapon but. I think you'll be good enough. I'm in agreement with you on this Chris. I. See leak being a more of a clear cut. For in terms of WHO's GonNa go the the quickest, probably the earliest, just because he's an undrafted rookies currently at the bottom. He's got a really tall hill to climb if he wants to find a way on this roster that doesn't mean he can't be a practice squad player, but Aston another tough situation to beat out an incumbent guy that's been in the League for multiple years now and has done a pretty good job is already had an impression on Dave gettleman before, so they at least know what they're getting with penny. They're probably GONNA WANNA stick with. A guy that they know who he is. In what he's capable of knowing more what he's capable of Hillman is where I get a little bit. Caught up because I, think that Hillerman is the type of guy that has been working hard enough that he might be instead of saying that Goldman's going to get cut in favor of Lewis I. Think the possibility that Hillman could put some pressure on gall in for that third spot if I'm if I'm just going with what's probably going to happen Hillman will probably be moved to the practice squad and ended up being that fo- fourth running back, and that's brought up in a tight situation, but I think the an interesting battle to watch is not only Dion Lewis versus Wayne Gelman for the backup spot, but also hillman putting pressure on. Wing Goldman for that at backup third spot. Because if you can't stay healthy, something goes wrong with him. During the preseason, Hillman will be right there to sweep up and take as many carries, can in those last few games Chris.

BONUS: Boone vs. Lewis vs. Washington

"Bonus episodes Sunday morning week. Sixteen good luck. Everybody Okay He. We've got three big running backs that are out likely out. We know all that Jazz Jacobs's out now. Derrick Henry not expected to play and Alvin Cook and Alexander Madison not expected to play so how are you ranking the replacements it really depends on format in non P P r Mike. Boone is the best option has a chance to be top fifteen back this week in what should be a good matchup is as the vikings defense can control Aaron Rodgers De'andre Washington would be my second favorite non PR and my favorite NPR are and when we saw what let's just Jacobs was out think we could be looking at somewhere close to eighty ninety total yards hopefully a score. Dion Lewis is is third in both formats I don't have a lot of faith in the titans ability to run the ball. Without Derrick Henry against the saints I will expect Tennessee more pass heavy with Lewis as their primary back. He's a better pass catcher. The Derrick Henry is so this is a small boost for me original. So I'm looking at Dion. Lewis is game log from last year and you know it started with the Dallas game. He started to get more work but he right before that week. Seven before the a by I remember after the bye they came out and gave more work week. Seventieth thirteen carries he had six catches. He scored fifteen fantasy points at non twenty-one fantasy points NPR then after the by they started using him a little bit more than nineteen carries for sixty two yards Actually his three games after the bye we basically blue audition. He averaged three point three two point nine and two point point four yards per carry He had four two and one catches in those gained one. Catch in those games. So yeah he's a wild card to me. I I don't really like I don't really think Dan Lewis going to run the ball. Well Heath but what I what I really don't know is how many catches you go in have been thrown in the running backs a lot. This year beat him or Henry You know Kenny get five catches can be a safe. Pr Guy Well since Ryan Tannehill took over which is what I guess. Like seven eight. I think eight Games as games now thinks Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis have combined for twenty-five targets like Ryan Tannehill just is not throwing rolling the ball to his running backs at all now the past volumes going to go up so maybe it's a little bit more than three in this game. I could see him getting four targets and maybe even catching three of them me catch all four of them. I could see somewhere between two and four catches but it's not something where he ranked significantly higher. NPR doesn't non PR. I'm not sure there'll be much difference by formats. It's mostly going to come down to. Whether he scores a touchdown or has a big play. which is kind of what it's come down to for Derrick? Henry it's just that he's had a touchdown a big play almost every game. So when when you so okay when you compare these guys now to waiver wire let's say Anthony Miller can't ask you about shot Perriman anymore. Anthony Miller and maybe Terry maclaurin who were getting a lot of questions about maybe a guy like decay metcalf. Are you going to go with the running backs over them. NPR PP are. I like Miller more than all three of these okay non PR. I'd go with Boone and Washington over Miller I'd still take Miller over dion. Lewis Mc Lawrence quite a ways behind Miller I guess. NPR from at least they're very similar in non PR NPR. I'd probably start both Washington and boone own over over corn and you right now on Sunday morning at nine thirty A. M. Eastern. You feel confident that Alexander Madison is going to be how you can confidently tell people to start. Mike Boon As cough like I have no inside knowledge whatsoever. The Vikings have said nothing to due to such a fact but the things that are coming out from Adam schefter and he and report make it sound like. They've clinched a playoff spot. There's no reason to push madison into the service. And so that's that's my expectation. Would I think it's impossible. That Madison could be active on Monday. Night note out at all. There's still a little bit of risk there with Boon but not near as much as there was on Friday. Okay all right. Well I think that more or less covers it. Let me ask you a couple Ryan Tannehill questions did you move him up ahead of anybody. In your rankings. Yeah I did. I actually moved Tim up ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick and Gordon. Ritu Ara and drew brees. He sits wow okay. He's six for you. He's tenth for Dave and Tanna Hill is eleventh for Jamie. So you with a high guy on Ryan Tannehill and yeah. We always want to see more pass attempts than you would think this would lead to more pass pass attempts not having not having Derrick Henry and probably better for AJ Brown maybe a little more confident AJ Brown even with a lot more situation. I think it helps. Aj Brown a little bit. Just because there's more passive all you and I would say like looking at ten hill and drew brees. I have them both projected for the exact same score down to one hundred point so if you wanted to start your res I'm okay with is that it's a true coin. Flip all right. I hope that's helpful for everybody. Good luck we'll talk to you tonight to recap the Games.

If he gets out, of course, he'll be on as always if not we'll talk to him another day. I got a couple of other things I needed to get off my chest. Anyway. Already talked about pretty much all most of the NFL items or whatever. But there's something that's on my way of Darby cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles out ACL tear. I mean the secondary defense just decimated with injuries right now. No excuses as they say it happens. It happens. It happens. One of the other things we saw yesterday is the new is the New England Patriots. Give beat down by the Tennessee titans. Marcus mariota. And those in the crew to Tennessee titans. They actually play a decent football. Let's put that out there. I number one. They actually play a decent football. If we're being honest with ourselves. Number two to tendency tight is what I like about them is that they're physical. They're not afraid to smack you in your mouth is what they bring to the table, right? The second place five and forty a game behind Houston. Texans at six three. They've won six straight. We've seen the Indianapolis Colts after one and five start. They've won three straight. Now, they're foreign five. Andrew luck is getting rolling and all of that other stuff. But I gotta tell you going to New England. You know what I saw from the New England Patriots yesterday in their loss to the Tennessee titans. I saw a team that ain't going back to Super Bowl this year. That's what I saw. I saw team that has not going back to the Super Bowl. Laser gentlemen, when you pay attention. And you look at the New England Patriots. And what they've had to endure this year. You got to watch what's going on here? Right. Because I got news for you. They haven't been that impressive. Yes. They want six straight. Yes. They got a bye week coming up. And then after that they got the jets which is a double by week. Some would argue because just not going to beat them. At least. That's what we surmise. Here's a reality. The New England Patriots are seven and three half the winning six straight. They lost yesterday to the Senate seat titans. That's what we saw. I'm gonna tell you what I see. I see their three losses. Against a poor Jacksonville Jaguars squad that we now know that's the true against the Detroit Lions squad. Eight much better know, by the way map Patricia is your former defensive coordinator in the wing land. And obviously variable used to play under billet chick in New England coach to him before he gets the Tennessee titans job. And then when you look at their roles victory, they beat Chicago in Chicago by the skin of their teeth special teams scored twice for them. Okay. And we saw how much they struggled and buffalo. So your defense. One those two games for you. And the three road games you lost. I got news for you. I don't like New England on a road. I don't like on a row, and I think it's going to be incredibly problematic for them. To get out of the AFC knowing that Pittsburgh possibly the chargers. Even though to me that's not like a Rogaine because southern California who wouldn't wanna play there. They probably prefer to play there rather than Foxborough. Going up against the kids stadium. See that's the big the big one for me. I'd see the knowing the patriots beating Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh before I see them beating Kansas City at Arrowhead stadium. That's just me. But the New England Patriots getting punched in the mouth and Tennessee's type of team. I wanna point Unum out there it consisted. But we saw what they did against Dallas on Monday night. We've seen what they did here. I think Tennessee's coming. That's a team. You gotta watch out for. I don't think you can ignore. What you're seeing from? Now. I really don't. I like Marcus mariota. I really do. He's not going to blow your socks off. But I like them I like the combination of Derrick Henry Dion Lewis out of the backfield. This kid Corey Davis had one hundred twenty five yards receiving seven receptions yesterday. So I keep my eyes on them. I really really would. That's my position on that. Let me also say this about Dion Lewis and do we have sound of Dion Lewis. Listen to Dion Lewis to form a member of the New England Patriots now playing in Tennessee with the titans along with Malcolm Butler because Malcolm Butler is there from New England as well. But this is Dion Lewis commenting about the New England Patriots. Listen to what he had to say. Here's a verse. We win. Especially when it used to be there. And they wanna bring you back. So definitely real street. I'm having my teammates came out and play and I loved his so there's a little person. That's what happened you go. That's what happens when you go cheap. You get your AK KT. That's what he said. That's what he said. So mustered up there and say, you know, what favor disrespectful towards Bill check into New England Patriots. I got a problem with the emotion. I got no problem with the emotion. Does the National Football League that we're talking about here? This guy's putting their bodies their health and not just the immediate health, but their future health on the line of play this game. And far too often or not. Did devalued devalued is minimized or flat out of radical? But it. And very very few people have done that Moore jointly. More viciously. Than Bill Belichick. Now's the businesses in. So it doesn't make Bill Belichick a criminal anything like that. But the point is in a business requires you to be heartless and your decision making very few have done it better than Bill. Check. For individuals who have actually produced for him. And because of that that's why I don't blame on Lewis for saying what he said it they'd say ESPN, it's edited seven nine three seven seven six go back to the phones. Also, hold on. Let me forget, I almost forgot one thing. Terrel austin? Name. Turlov is the now former defensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals fired this morning by Marvin Lewis and the Bengals why because for the third consecutive gain. Two of them losses. When the Kansas City yesterday to the saints. They beat Tampa Bay last week all three games they've given up over five hundred yards on offense to the opposition. Terra Lawson is taken a hit. Look the Cincinnati Bengals rank last or dead last in four different defensive categories including against run against the pass yards allow points allowed. I get it can't brag about lost today. But you could a year ago two years ago. Where people were looking at him and people were raving about him, and he was supposed to be a head coach in waiting and all of this other stuff. And then what happens he got hired by Marvin Lewis and subtly. Hey stinks, right? When people go to wake up. You really think I get joy out of saying this? Really do. I got to produce a here, by the way, a white guy. Love Marvin Lewis. Loves them. Marvin lewis. What were they before he got there and look at them? Now, here's the problem. He's been saying that for the last decade. A decade in which more of a Lewis has not wanna playoff game. This been fifteen years and more Lewis has a one one single playoff game. What are you saying to your citizens in Cincinnati? What are you saying? I don't notice man I have nothing personal against him. I did not say to man does not know football. I did not say the man doesn't deserve to be coaching. I did not say those things I'm talking about strictly as it pertains to the franchise that is the Cincinnati Bengals. How do you live with your self? How could you have to say man on a job that is a headman as the head coach who has now won you won single playoff game and fifteen years. If I said that Moore Lewis doesn't deserve to be a head coach I could understand people coming at me. I really could because I'm not questioning the man's football acumen. I am saying to you that when it comes to being the head coach, he's not a winner. And you know, good Adair. Well, he's not a winter. And if you know, Dan, well, he's not a winner. But you claim the care about winning. What does he still have damn job? This is disgraceful. What a voluntary or involuntarily? You have had one coordinated have another one coach after another coming out of the street to Cincinnati. But this man stays on a job. Why? Does he have or you might Brown? Have you not been doing the right thing? And he's got evidence. Oh, you're stead. You gotta be kidding me. Supposed to believe that this guy. Tear lost it. That was respected and considered a head coach Kenny settling forgot out a coat. Opposable leave them over Lewis had nothing to do what happened on the defensive side of the ball in Cincinnati because out the season. How many passes does this man? Ah? Last Friday this past Friday. We're Luke's airforce base Glenn in Arizona. The. And I told America on national television for I tape television show from ten AM to noon eastern standard time every weekday on ESPN. I said quote my condolences to the Cincinnati Bengals your team is about to get robbed and stomped New Orleans is coming to town. You don't have a J green. So therefore, you have this. You have the perfect excuse to lie down like a bunch of dogs. And take Joe but within. Set it on national television, and my lion. And what happened it was thirty five or seven at the half. And every single time. Jonathan look at me when I'm talking to you Winthrop his name is Jonathan with them. Good guy, white guy that loves marbles. Go figure. I'm a black man that doesn't. Let me tell you something. This situation is black and white. But it ain't because people. It's black your white in terms of what the hell is obvious that should happen. And this man more Lewis, you're so we're listening. You gotta produce the New Yorkers name is Jonathan with throw loves the ground you walk on if you're pass gas. He's called a perfume. You can do no wrong. And I'll tell you his name, and I'll tell you what a find him because he's about the olien Yata human being known as a football fan United States of America. That would think that way about. Yeah. I don't mean any outcome. Just play with my man Jonathan with them. He knows I love him. Marvin Lewis not so much. In all seriousness. I wanna stay for the record. I have nothing against Marvin Lewis. I know that's hard to believe. Because what I'm saying? I he's never done. Anything to me have nothing against him. I have nothing against them. But his record. Do y'all not understand that if you allow this man to continue to keep his job? You can't call anybody. You know, Jason Gary go ahead and keep your job you what I mean, you got to the players before. Why are we talking about tall both? He's only been there for four years. Marvin Lewis got fifteen what the hell is Hugh Jackson gone. I mean after all he did a hell of a job is the physical data in Cincinnati. What could easily argue he could have been a successor to Marvin Lewis had he stayed longer. There's a whole two guys. That's still have jobs if we're not gonna hold more than Louis accountable. It's a damn shame. We live in the United States of America degrades country in the world. We live in a society. Rife with capitalism and capitalism capitalism's mentality. So the victors go the spoils. You get spoiled when you produce in ways that others have not. And when you don't you get cast aside, that's the society that we're supposed to be living in. But evidently, it doesn't apply to the streets of Cincinnati. You don't have an NBA team. You ain't got a baseball team. We're talking about. I know Kentucky and Louisville or right on the road your football program just five that's coach after two and eight season. And by the way, he had them respectable a couple of years ago, but more Lewis could keep his job for the last fifteen years without one playoff victory. What a disgrace. Michael you evening. Hey, how you doing? Even a I'm all right? Go ahead. Man, man. The great thing is p and could have deal with gay your your show, man. Well, man, you kill the truth where the truth need to be told. Thank you. Boy, my com my comment. My problem is I'm with your hundred percent. I hate the cowboy and I'm starting to hate the Bengals. And it seemed like like everyone keep getting fired and kicked out the sandbox except the right people. We'd better I'm getting ready to bagels. And like you just said he elect topic. Give us an NBA team. I'm not I'm not going say get rid of the team. But you could definitely do a better job with another coach. You definitely could enough's enough enough. I don't want to hear about another coordinator or coach being gone for the facility bingos while Marv Lewis's to there and not only did they have the temerity, the unmitigated gall to let go under the physical auditable. Keep more of Louis. They actually gave them over Lewis his responsibilities. So now evolve Lewis is going to be in charge of the defense. Handed responsibilities yet on the show to the reading. Yeah. I'm gonna tell you get a Rite Aid gay green might be gone. If I were him. I'd wanna leave with Cincinnati with this this other than cold weather. You tell me we're and always killed every player that they trae and whatever teammate Goto they ended up to the Super Bowl. This act can ball Dunlap Kim ball. Dalton is no scrub AJ. Green is an absolute stud Giovanni Bernard can ball. Okay. I like the Ted mixing on the field off the field. But on the field. I like mix it. The fact of the matter is they got plenty of talent. They don't have the proper level of leadership that mandates. They produced what it really really counts, and that's their problem. Appreciate the call, man. Thank you so much. Let's go to Gerard you lava Stephen they talk to me. They are you doing good? Exactly, you think that Carmelo ethnic can bring the any router. I know you're talking a lot of things people are saying you're going to seventy or it could be going to seventy Sixers. They could be interested in. But they're what he'd given to the rockets as far as off the bench starting, you know, if they gave him every situation to kind of prosper. What do you think he can bring? I just don't see what he could. Well, let me let me ask you this. Let me ask you this question. Did you know that in the ten games Carmelo Anthony pay played he scored over twenty and four of them? Did you know that? I did. Okay. Let me ask you a question. You think anybody can just go over twenty. No, I was already. So what I'm saying? You is this. He's not an all star. He's clearly lost a couple of steps at the very least. There is no doubt about it. My point. However is that I see a lot of scrubs in the NBA. I see a lot of guys that come that. You could play better than I think Carmelo Anthony didn't take better care of his body as much as he should have. And I think he's got a bloated view of himself. Because there's a product is equal won't let them humble himself to the point where he realizes and recognizes he is simply not what he used to be. But that doesn't mean that you're scrub do I think they're Carmelo Anthony can average fifteen eighteen and night. Yes. I do. I really do is he a number one option. No. But could he give you fifteen to eighteen the night? I believe he can I really I really believe he can he can't give you much else. He damps rank will give you a so much defense. But do are there teams that could use fifteen eighteen the night. Yes. I think they are. And that's why I mentioned Philly. I just I just don't know. I don't know if if fairly that don't work. I mean, there's a well, what do they have? Let me ask you a question. What do they have? All right. You got your start? Let's say, for example, there started five is Simmons. Embiid Butler, Rettig and Wilson Chandler, right? And we'll scholar and TJ McConnell coming off the bench. What else do the Sixers half? Well, I mean, I would think that really wouldn't take all wouldn't have all five starters out at the same time. I would I think they would I think they would. Because if you don't start if you don't stop them what you're gonna do. No, no, no. I mean. Start them. But I'm saying as far as as far as distributing there. I'm in it. I wouldn't say of being a whole five I told you I got let's talk about with. Let's talk about this at a later day. 'cause I gotta run. I appreciate the call for Sean. You live Stephen over, Sean. We'll quit. Go ahead. Hey, Steven how you doing right away. You bet with of ago saying I was gonna actually name three teams. Carmelo Anthony could benefit from that. You think I think Philadelphia is one of them? I'm just talking about idea 'cause I don't want him in a no win situation. Meaning like, no playoffs. He's done enough of that in his career. I would say definitely Philadelphia. Playoffs playoffs. Plus, I think Milwaukee could use somebody like in the shoot from the outside as well. That would be to. That's about it for me. That's about it for me. Sean. Thanks for Sean, Sean was going. It'd be only those two teams. I'm sure I could come up with another one. If I thought hard enough about it. But it's not necessary. I guess you could put them in New Orleans with Anthony Davis and draw a day. I don't think that'll be enough coming off the bench. You know? I don't think they need it. You know?

Stephen a Smith show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN news, by the way, triple action protection for optimal performance which shell v power nitro plus premium gasoline. He gets on my damn nerves practically every weekday border doing what he does on get up. But I love my brother. We always go back and forth, talk some basketball, but we're not the baiting here today. I'm interviewing so I'm asking questions, and I actually have to listen to his answer without giving any pushbacks. I'm talking about my brother Jalen, rose, one of the stars on get up. You can catch that show every week. They wanted from eight to ten AM eastern standard time over the national television Airways ESPN news. Jalen rose. What's going on, man? How are you? Oh, it is a pleasure. Thanks for having me on. Let's get right to it. Man. I went off the air. And then over the weekend we learned that Jimmy Butler is leaving the Minnesota Timberwolves. He is now going to be a member of the Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers your reaction when you heard the trade. What do you think it does for the Sixers and Jimmy? My initial reaction was this great for the game. And now the power has officially shifted from the Western Conference other than the Golden State Warriors to the east because I believe four or five of the top overall squats besides Golden State now reside in the east when you talk about the author Celtics Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks are now in that conversation, and obviously Philadelphia seventy Sixers and the other thing that came to mind if I could make an argument that the Sixers now have three of the top six overall players in the Eastern Conference, the other three to come to mind or coli Greek freak and Kyrie Irving. And so for you to have that much star power is going to be great to see how they continue to add to the roster, which aren't they they're going to need to do they go to win the Eastern Conference championship. But it was a great move out of six. Years. But it also having scratching my head to what Minnesota was trying to get accomplished. Why does he why do you scratch your head as it pertains to what Minnesota's trying to get accomplished? I only ask that question. Jalen because this Robert Covington kin defend not to mention the fact he led the NBA last season and catch and shoot three pointers with one hundred and eighty nine Dario, Saric is no scrub, and so will you consider that a long will call Anthony towns Wiggins the way Derrick rose has been playing one would surmise that they need to do that dad. What do you say to that? Well, if you're looking at it for Minnesota perspective, look at it like this. When you give up in all star, you probably should get one return. And I agree with what you said about those who players, but either one of them will be that in Minnesota. And also you hope to get a first round pick, which did not happen. They took the route of a team that isn't normally used to getting price reagents. So therefore, you're gonna make sure you trade for guys who are already locked into contract. Like Covington already is for sorry to still dealing with a rookie contract. Minnesota however will be better, and I know you paying attention. But for those who haven't they haven't been really good. Whether Butler was in or out of the lineup consistently this year so basketball while building out their team, they're going to look a lot better. But overall, I would love to see one of those things happen when you move a player like their Jalen rose. How good do you think? Jimmy Butler is. NBA caliber not superstar level player. Not franchise changing player. He's not like what we're seeing with a typical poll with the books that if you have him. Now, you have a chance to be one of the top teams in the however if he's your. Decade maybe serve best player on the dynamic. Then you have a special situation. Ten rows right here with Steven ESPN radio. ESPN news. Let me transition to the biggest news in the last twenty four hours percolating around the NBA. And that is what's happening. We're Carmelo Anthony in Houston. Now people we listen father Thomas undefeated, it is clear that Carmelo Anthony is not what it used to be that he's lost to step etcetera etcetera. But you got guys like d way talking about how come Anthony is being used as a scapegoat with his Jalen rose lie and all of this based on the reports that Carmelo Anthony is on his way out of Houston about to be cut away. The whatever the case may be as you know, there's somebody live where he says game. Anytime you ask to former player or current player is going to be really touchy going to give you a couple that people can follow. He was in the same draft. Parents LeBron James roster the best player on his team. What are the best players in the game? Clearly didn't go to college. Right. The way way if it has little Caesar already knowledge that he will retire. And he play a couple of years in college. So mellow to meet fall right in between. And when you become a veteran, you have to be horrible to reinvent yourself and your role in order to give yourself not only productivity but learn Chevy, and he was in Erie willing to do that. Okay. See he scoffed at the notion that they would consider even bringing him off the pitch and that didn't go. Well, they ended up losing in the first one of the playoffs. So narrow when you come to Houston person, we're all asking if Camarillo be associated who is he going to be a starter? And when he was posed that question just like Mike that Tony basically your answer was I can do whatever the team needs if we're winning. And so with that qualify right there. Chris foggy suspended a couple of games dams hurt and get injured a couple of games. He has a couple of mostly valleys in particular. What happened there? Okay. See where he really struggled from the whole. Mark Levin about a way that wants that one child was goal tended. We don't even know how to go in. Exactly. So he was distraught by that game. And trust me, Steven Singer soul searching, take it for guy. Played for multiple teams. You have to find a way to reinvent yourself and Alan Iverson did exit racially as a future hall of favor. I was hoping that Carmella was find a way to do. So it didn't happen in Houston. They are struggling we knew that their record wasn't going to be as good as it was a shift. We knew that there wasn't gonna be as good as last year. So he kind of set himself up to the scapegoat. If things go well, and I know my dad, Tony hold all of that became a perfect storm back to divert, and he like, wait a minute. They drafted me an all star. I wish I would let us fancy me coming off the bench. What they would be Jimmy struggle trying to go to ever. Now that situation is blown up to where he's going to end up on his fifteen in three years. So you really think this legitimacy too because listen, I've heard the same thing that you heard you know, I have. But I wanted to be careful about just just going about the business saying, Mike dantonio, hold grudges. But people have brought up Stefan, marberry, Phoenix. At once. Once you got to New York, they brought up Carmelo Anthony when he was in New York and now in Houston where my dad Tony biz Dilip is was your defensive coordinator, he abruptly retires. Trevor reason Lucan bomb are gone, and you got to coach Dan Tony that never prioritized defense to begin with. So there's a lot of things you could point to as as it pertains to Houston's trouble instead of it being on mellow, but you really really think that this legitimacy to the notion Mike, Dan dantonio holds grudges, absolutely. Like a coach chip puts you in a position to but maximize what you have. And or exposure. And I think one of the things that happen initially was when he became a substitute. That was the first time in his career that he had done. So when CPI three got suspended that in hill, Danes heart and got injured that didn't help. So now he's putting the position to play like a stretch power forward in the Western Conference, which really ain't is game. Remember in the preseason when he caught it at the three point line did a pump fake and took a shot inside the learn and made it and he looked at the bench and apologize. Then wasn't good because you got one of the altar leading scores in the game apologizing for exactly what made him that. So that dynamic never looks good from that point Jalen rose right here with Steven A, SPN radio ESPN news. I'm gonna put you on the spot. Jalen rose. I'm gonna ask you a question. I don't even know if you've been asked this already. Okay. Chicago mellow Anthony retire right now, he retired. He is not only to retire. He is not only to retire. Too much money in the game too many opportunities when your current athlete they've always to through medicine after resting players in the game. It's not being as physical to allow players to play a lot longer in his head. He's a double figure scores still that could contribute to a winner. If I'm him. And I wouldn't be surprised if this line of thinking, they take your place telling the try to ride away you tried it. Okay. See that they work try to Houston that ain't work. Now don't be surprised if he'd say, hey, Philly. Can I come in to here? You say Philly, you could say Philly, I think that could be an ideal spot for him, Jalen rose. But I'll tell you what instant isn't a good spot. It's Los Angeles. He added listened. I've been told that if he wanted if LeBron wanted him in Cleveland last year Melo would have been Cleveland if LeBron wanted him in LA now he'd have been in LA. So the greatest player in the world and a lot of people's eyes doesn't necessarily want somebody. That's his good friend. What do you say to that? I say that he doesn't fit in Los Angeles. I agree better in he don't fit because you're taking you take minutes away from coups month and LeBron James plays up front as well. Anna tighter Taylor. They have Mckee. They're playing Ingram minutes. It just no minutes for him a fun. Rhonda. They wanna see his girlfriend like Chris Paul right now, basically getting close to the MP's that's over probably happen base with the lake. So basically what you're saying is the melodies to go to Philly and be convinced to be, you know, Vinnie microwave Johnson from back in the day with your Detroit Pistons be happy coming off the bench and just being an offensive force. That's what you should do. I appreciate you being a worse real as say like going to Philly and. Encouraged to come off the bench, right? Like, it's not their point anymore. He needs to be begging for opportunity to put it. Yeah. It's way different. Now. That's what I mean. Yeah. Reinventing yourself you have to look at yourself in the mirror, different coaches. Your teammates everybody can't you is this your hall of Famer the average twenty points player anymore. Would you get out there? Now, if you make your first three or four more minutes, you miss your first three or four you pointed with the plenty of the career. He's at right now, you talked about the money. My last question to you. Jalen rose, you talked about the money and there's so much money in the game. Or what have you mellows made over three hundred million dollars, not say, you can't make more? And obviously, obviously he's doing some great great things off the court is well, I guess what I'm asking is that when does it get to that point Jalen where people are able to walk away from the game before the game is pushing them out the door ninety eight percent of athletes. Don't choose their indie. So like when you see a Kobe or pay manning those? Type of players they can choose their endings because they're all time greats. Then you have a guy like MJ who you would have thought after doing a crossover against by Russell made the game when shot or the walked away from the all he's still had the issue to play. And so for mellow. I think like this Carter he's at a my state where I can't find a landing spot or I can still play in the league or a couple of more Caesar's. So I don't envision Jim not only retire right now. But after this year, gender, rose appreciate you, buddy. Thanks a lot, man. Thanks for making time for me. Appreciate that, bro. Take care. Always appreciate the love. All right. When the only Jalen rose Jalen and Jacoby here their park has their radio show.

Your phone calls always welcomed seven seven three DP show, Email address DP, Dan, Patrick dot com. While watching the Rams game yesterday, you can't help. But think you know, you're watching this game. Game you can smell smoke, and you have to also factor in what they've gone through in the area of Thousand Oaks with the mass murder their tragedy there the fires that are still raging and even seeing Reggie Miller with his family and read showed me the video and he had video of his house the day after the fire, and you could see where the fire came right up to his port. But it he said that they didn't lose the house. So right up to the porch. You you see that? There's stuff is smoldering right there in his backyard that somebody had gotten video for him. Just so he knew what he had and his two little ones in his wife with him. And he said this is what we have. We have the clothes on our back. You can't get back into Malibu right now. They closed the Pacific Coast Highway. And so I didn't know if that was going to affect our gas. I said to Todd look if anybody has to cancel or we can help in any way with accommodations. Let us know, you know, the Rams go out there and. Some of the Rams Rams employees were displaced evacuated by this. But the game sort of brings people together, you know, and it it's I'm listening to what they're saying. Because I can say it, but I'm not bothered by it. I wasn't affected by it. But these people were and they said, you know, what it gives it gave us something gave us a distraction. It was something that brings you together a little bit. Yeah. Point. I had a moment yesterday. My my cousin lives in Calabasas. And I called her just who's going and just to show you how much older than her. He's the owner twenty s I said issues. Yeah, we had to get everything out of our apartment or get some stuff out of our party and go down to a friend's house in a safer area. I go to you like grab all your boxes with all your pictures and stuff like that. And she plus you yet do all my pictures on my phone. Every pitch. I've taken in the past twenty years and Melissa Ethridge talked about this. She said, look, I didn't like what are you take when you have to take something? And she said, you know, I gathered my kids in my wife, but I left all my guitar. She's got an Oscar a couple of Grammys in if it ever came down to something horrible like that. Like, what are you grab other than make sure that you know, your family is safe? And you know, we we did supply Melissa with guitar. It looked like it was something out of the cars or cheap trick or kiss. But you know, as great as she is she she made it sink. All right poll question. Mclovin for the final hour. Okay. We had a few today. The last the previous one was would you rather go diving with sharks or you stand up for the first time fifty one percent sharks. The new one is which New York team is in the most trouble. And the runaway winner is New York. Giants who happen to be three point underdogs tonight to the forty nine the forty Niners over it. So the giants people think are worse than the jets. That's because the expectation level was very high with the giants certainly was with me. They're also very bad. Every time the giants lose. I always get people say, yeah, he thought they were gonna win ten games. Yes. I did. I thought the giants were going to surprise people. The defense would be really good the additional Barclay Odell Beckham healthy, and you would get ally. Manning maybe running on fumes. But that would be enough that that team would be that good. Yes. Fritzy? And you always say how like, you know, they start up slope within you expect that run. Yeah. Late October into November which has not just to give you a hint of what they could have been. Yes, mclovin. If the giants lose to is this he lies last Arana's. They lose tonight. Oh, well, they try out Kyle Aleta or would I think they will. I I know that they want to be fair to ally respectful to ally. I think they were when this season started. And now you can say well, he's played. Well, I think there's a difference in sometimes you can look at a box score and go man that guy. I had a great game. And then if you watch the game you realize he didn't really have a great game. He put up some good numbers. But he didn't have a great game allies putting up good numbers. But I don't he's not threatening. He's not getting touchdowns which says his eight touchdowns on the year and six picks, but he's on track for forty seven hundred yards and completing seventy percent of his passes. But that's the new running game in the NFL. It's like four yards five yards three yards two yards. That's really what it is. You haven't clump. What do you do with these quarterback numbers again? Even even yesterday. Drew Brees is on pace almost eighty percent completion rate. I'd like to know third down completion. I'd like to know how long your completions are. And I'd like to know your red zone efficiency. Like, those are the things that I would want to know in assessing how great your season is spin. How about this? The patriots. Do they get a first round? Bye patriots losing yesterday. And really they got embarrassed by Tennessee. And got roughed up. Here's Dion Lewis. The former patriot getting a little retro. Russian on the patriots verse we wear. Especially when it used to be there. And they wanna bring you back. So definitely real sweet. I'm having my teammates came out and play. And I love his. That's what happened when you go cheap. You can ask him. And then I mentioned earlier that seat and said, you know, Tom Curren who always comes on the show. He covers the patriots. He's Tom Brady apologist and seat goes. I think Tom Kern is kinda hinting that maybe Tom Brady this is like the beginning of the end, and I go, okay. So what is it Lee? Tell me if I'm reading too much into the T tweeted during the game. The great throws, obviously are in there as that dart to Gordon demonstrated, but I've seen more bad not a chance throws today than I've seen in years or perhaps ever not all due to pressure. It's the throws to the perimeter downfield. Oh, that's if that's those are the worst throws. He's ever seen Tom Brady. Make and his maybe ever in his whole career that feels like a little beginning of the end dish. Okay. Yep. I have an article from two thousand fourteen September two thousand fourteen Brady's inability to throw deep reveals deeper problems with the patriots offensive two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen Tom Brady. Accuracy issues part of the problems for the patriots off. And so that was fourteen and fifteen and then he won the MVP lashed. Ask correct. Yeah. Yeah. It everybody wants to be first to say it. But there've been so many people who have said it and they've been wrong. They're eventually going. Hey, I told you like you can't tell me in two thousand fourteen that the beginning of the end. And then it happens in two thousand nineteen you don't get credit for that. I'm looking at this with the patriots. So they are seven and three two and three on the road and those three losses have come by average of seventeen points. They're gonna win the AFC east. So they get one home playoff game. Right. Probably okay. The chiefs chargers and Steelers all have better records than the patriots. The Texans can match them with a win next week in Washington chiefs and chargers can't both get buys. But the Steelers can by the way, they're looking right now. The Texans haven't lost in September. The good news is the patriots have only three more road games. The bad news is one is in Pittsburgh, if they want to avoid having to play there in January you have to figure out a way to win that game in Pittsburgh. So kind of interesting there, and I think a playoff game right there that. Yeah. Pittsburgh doing England. Also the Rams game yesterday. Why does Floyd Mayweather get a couple of football? I mean, he he was there. He was in one of those end zone. Sweet. So you got Brandin cooks and Tyler Lockett or give them a football is like give it a give it to a kid. I can't he kid and at first I thought they did I'm on that little guy got something. I go. Oh, that's all boy. All right. My bad. My anybody here that look at that little Bucker. I'm their guy. Yeah. Paulie Boyd still rolls like twelve deep with Brokaw main. I you can't have him ever to a party. You can't roll him at twelve rose when I was in Russia in so cheap for the Olympics. Floyd was there, and he was in the bar area in the back, so hotel lobby and he had an entourage. So it it took a little while for him to get out of the back of the bar area. So he had all of his all of his boys there, and then they're so big like, you couldn't you know, there's the trees there, and you couldn't see him in any kind of he pops out. So I said, hey Floyd. He goes, hey, man. How's it going? I said good just he said, I'm here to watch some of my boxers. Yes, there was that forget what Super Bowl it was. But there were you know, he has like the money team. This is things is TM M on it. And there were I don't know five of his cars, and they were like these big buses, limousines, and HAMAs and all this stuff, and they were doing this crazy alas. Borate loop at a hotel parking lot where they were changing order, and then one would pull out one would go back in and it was like this unbelievable routine that I don't know if it was a security thing or what? But we just stood there and watched and we're like, whoa. What are they what is this game going on? Right. Think. That's what that's that. Was that was security reasons like which car is Floyd in? Yeah. Yeah. He's a real inconspicuous? Lamborghini boy options on the side who saw that coming. There's med with our. How would you? At cars got his name written all over to literally twenty-foot extended Hummer h three Cassie in. Wisconsin leads us off fine lower best and worst of the weekend. I- cassie. Hi, first time, one time five five and a lady nevertheless deals her weight. Actually two best of the weekend. One being the bucks over the warriors as well as brook. Lopez of all people going off on the nuggets last night for twenty crazy. Yeah. I know we wondering how many Denver fans are saying. Like who is? Ax. No cable to watch the Packers game. Oh, okay. Actually seen them play. Yeah. Being the dolphins. Thanks for the phone. Call cassie. Yes. Mclovin. Great new nickname for brook Lopez the geek freak. Okay, zone the box. And he's you know, Stanford nerd the Keith freaks pretty good. Yeah. Who came up with that the ringer? Sorry, the owl. Okay, Simmons credit. You got busted. They're mclovin. I said, great new nickname and implied. It's out there. I didn't say I got a great, new nickname. I heard a great new nickname. Yeah. That was better. Oh, you know. I said, I got a great new nickname geek freaks good, partial, partial credit. Yeah. That's ringer. I'm gonna take full credit of brook Lopez's being a decent three point shooter because we had him on prior to the all star game. And I said, look, you gotta shoot a three fourths any shot at three in the all star game. But I said, you know, you gotta learn to shoot the three how many he had eight threes last night for thirteen from three. And I remember when he would shoot them, and it wasn't pretty. But now, you know, he's out there on the perimeter. Yes. He did you see that video? Speaking of not pretty did you see the video of more Celts digging the free throw. No, ooh, dear. That poor fella is just having a rough. Well, that you know, what if Marquel Foltz was. Playing like they thought he would then you wouldn't have had the Jimmy Butler trade it looks like it was reminiscent of if it was like if a free throw could look like Charles Barkley's golf swing. Oh, so was in pieces. It was sort of like he gets got to the top of in his giddy up there. And then air balled it tough. So shot has like a hiccup or a couple got it sad. It really is. But you, you know, you make the move for Jimmy Butler because Foltz was not working out. And then I wonder I'm unthinking if he's has a chance to play in the NBA make it the NBA he's gonna have to play for another team. I think you're gonna have to get him out of there. And maybe get him into a smaller market and let him try to get some kind of confidence back. I I don't know if it's possible. But you know, that's one of those once it's in your head. It's really hard to get rid of because you could have something where you may running back has surgery, and it's just okay. I gotta learn how to cut have com. Competence there. This is different for him. He forgot how to shoot. Yeah. Phone. But again, any concern about the young guys not being the starting more. I know that I I hope that Jimmy Jimmy Butler wanted to get paid that. That's what this was all about. So he he got paid. I don't know if he feels like, well, I gotta go out and show that I'm a star. Now, you know because sometimes you you want to prove that you're living up to that salary. You're making I hope that he understands you got something unique with Ben Simmons. Joel embiid. And now he comes in. He has a chance to do something. He got out of Minnesota, which is what he wanted. He got paid. Now, you gotta make sure that you're helping those two young players get better. It didn't work with Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony towns because they didn't want to listen to. Yep. Loan. I have Markelle full two stats and they're not bad. They're not great yet. Twenty six minutes game nine points, four rebounds, four sis- shooting. Forty two percent from the field and thirty percent from three he only takes one three a game. But it's you know, it's not like starting shooting guard worthy. But it's close not number one pick overall, and he's going to be compared to Jason Tatum the rest of his career now that's another problem as well. It's like Michael candy who was the second pick in that draft. When the clippers took all the way candy was Mike Bibby. I was Vince Carter draft, right? But here's bets like Greg Oden with Kevin Durant. It's Ryan leaf Peyton Manning. Sometimes when it's one in two, then you're always you're attached to them. No matter what they do and the most famous one ever was buoy obvious. Yeah. Sambu? Yeah. But Sam got injured, right. But he's the ultimate number two with the wrong guy going number three. Yeah. Point nineteen ninety eight draft the clippers took all the candy out at university of the Pacific. Mike Bibby Raef lafrentz. Ooh. That was a bus to then. Go antoine. Jamison Vince Carter tractor trailer. The pasty gangster Jason Williams out of Florida. Larry Hughes, not bad, Dirk Nowitzki number nine of Milwaukee. And they traded him to Dallas and then Paul Pierce. Here's. Jason williams. I still can watch those videos white chocolate was just so much fun. And then he would be in these pickup games in Orlando. And he'd just be slicing and dicing these guys they all wanted a piece of him and make he looks like he's still play. He was fun. You a whole lot of fun. I can remember all star game. He did the behind the back pass. And he went chicken wing and elbowed it to the guy. And it was like what what did we just see? There would you? How did it happen? He didn't move on Gary Payton where he went behind the back. Instead, I mean how he did it. But he went behind he faked the behind the back, and then and gears, you know, the glove was obviously a great defender. And in j will was just like downloadable. But then I went all the way. All right. You got somebody's attention. Anyway, you could describe that too. All right. Take a break. We'll come back with our best and worst of the weekend.

Worship of the weekend. And we have to record a lap for fritzy fritzy show and stand up tonight since it strip at the comedy store. You gotta lime at you can delivered that we'll be able to like a clean line. Clint like something that we can laugh at like one of the classics. Right. So who's going on? I'll go first I'll lead the way we're doing this individual. Okay. We'll do it as a group then and then they can play they can try to insert this case the audience doesn't laugh tonight. And they'll be like a laugh track. You know, like the falcons colts member they put in crowd noise. They piped it in night. So we're right. So I have some way to lose every once in a while when this romance going on between me and the wife when I happened to be on top of keep waiting for her to pull a yellow flag out and say that I'm roughing the spouse. You can't put your body. Okay. That's not bad. That's not bad bit. Don't you lead with that? Hopefully, it's a football fan audience big. I'm gonna come my plan is to go krone sleep apnea, and then that's going to be very soon after that sleep apnea gets me to you know, that if you lose some weight symptoms of sleep apnea tend to decrease, and then I think that was going to insert weight related thing in that spot, which may or may not work. But that's kind of how I envisioned it. Okay. All right. Yeah. Point, dan. I think this is an opportunity for Todd do some light sports pandering. Like, he welcome to the Todd. I say, hey, you guys see the Rams are nine and one everyone's going to clap because the Rams are popular local team. You know, I I watched a lot of football cover football for a living. And and then go to that joke. I think you're good. Because you get you playoff the Rams being good and everyone's gonna clamp. You don't. You. Don't wanna go. You don't wanna fall behind right away. No. But my. I don't wanna say blue. But by the way, I'm going to describe the throwing the flag and where it's coming from. It'd be a little more colorful than with the way, I just here. But you don't have to I don't. But I think it requires more than that. She's going to. No, no, no, just you'd leave something open to interpretation be suggestive. Where did that flag? Come from. Like, you got to you can't leave something to the imagination. I do tend to. You've never leave something to the imagination. Yes, seton. I think if if there's one thing Todd has learned throughout this entire experience. I hope that it's he should never take advice on stand up from anyone in this room because we absolutely submarines him for Caroline's all of the stuff that he's gotten the most criticism for is the stuff that we told them to do. He shouldn't listen to a word anybody here saying, well, wait in fairness. We're not purposely savage dashing. What no no, we're not purposely doing it. We're we're where we did was presentation where he started its good intentions that led him down a horrible path. Was that the path the hell is laid with good. Something like that. Yes. That's we sent him right into the depths of hell on Caroline stage. Yes. I'm just trying to get to too much angst because there's several hours between the end of this program and heading over to the comedy store. And I know I'm going to replay my head fifty times what I'm going to say, it's just gonna be bad. I'm not going to suggest anything I did make my suggestion. I think if you lead with the roughing the passer roughing, the spouse call I think it's a good way to easy in. You got some laughs. You got a little momentum poise about them. Rams LA. Yeah. Just say look. Hey, great to be here. Got Chan see the Rams in person yesterday. Give it up for the Rams nine and one, and you know, they're maybe going to the Super Bowl little, cheap applause and then say. Plus better than silent. Yes. But then you say, you know, I'm watching Russell Wilson run around trying to avoid Aaron Donald it. Maybe think of you know, me and my wife, and then you go into your joke. Roughing the spouse. Yeah. See now, see I think though, if you're setting up a intimate encounter with your wife. Right. And then he sort of implying like this poor woman has to do this with me. Yeah. Don't you want to sort of come pound that with like set it up with a little Krones humor? A little sleep apnea, and you're like my God. And then this woman's gotta deal with. I was thinking I appreciate seeding can't building up from ridable alexy's. Someone's got to find him attractive. Wasn't bad enough that I'm going to the bathroom constantly, and I may die in my sleep because I'm gonna wear this Deepak machine. Now, I'm going to get on top once in awhile, and she's going to get crushed just it's really becoming a tidal wave of your your wife is unbelievable. She really is. She's a Saint. Yes. Paulie? Now. Now, I think Todd it's gonna spend the day and his hotel room going over the order over and over and over, and then it's going to come out like total confusion chaos, and in some kind of mixed bag of badness Seton mentioned Tom current this is before the show because Seton loves his patriots. He goes, do you see the tweet by Tom Curran and Tom covers the patriots? And I said, no, I said it's bad because I don't know. I think current might be hinting that this could be the end of the line. He covers the patriots for NBC sports Boston. Tom current joins us. Now, we're you hinting at something there Thomas. Just absorbing just observing because you know, as Seton might related to situate following a Twitter feed yesterday, Dan. No that was to me. I saw more unforced errors by Brady. I mean, he had very good throws mixed in most of them, you know, the short variety. But when he was trying to go down field to the perimeter. He was extremely inaccurate. And you're always going to get the great and outstanding throws. But there was a higher ratio to me than I've ever seen of just those weird looking inaccurate never had a chance type throws. So I don't think it's necessarily attached to age to me. There was some throws in that. I said something wrong with this frigging hand. Because there were there were some froze that just look like to Coby Ellsberg you're getting it in from center homeboy. That's what you should a tweet it out. Then I would have known that. This was Pakalitha. This was the end of the world for the patriots here. How do you think this? Here's Dion Lewis Tuesday. Today's of you can play the former patriot running back Dion Lewis plays for the titans. Yeah. This to say after the win over the patriots. There's a row sweet win. Especially when it used to be there. And they wanna bring you back. So definitely real sweet. I'm having my teammates came out and play and I loved his little perfect person. That's what happened when you go cheap. You get to ask him. Now this plan. I don't know. I I go cheap. All the salmon. Never get my ask. Just shop. I won't get one on there. It's playing interestingly in New England. And I think that we did a poor job because it was pretty respectful all week of appreciating. Just how motivated different titans people would be. And it wasn't just the on Lewis because we look at these guys, and they all get paid. They all made their money. Yeah. Still think that there's that undercurrent of your, you know, you guys gave up on me. That's why I go get my money for able get traded to Kansas City that sucked dean pees defensive coordinator. He is a rare coaching firing patriots fired him in two thousand nine. He's been a pain in their posterior since who's at the ravens. He was a terrific terrific games against the patriots defensive coordinator there and he had a great plan yesterday. All those guys I think we did a bad job of and Malcolm Butler. Oh, yeah. Him. He just didn't stack as much as I thought he might have. But you know, dealing Lewis on down the line, and this happened so awesome with this team in you can go all the way back to two thousand three with lawyer Malloy, they went through thirty one to nothing because he entire bills team drafted office easier. Tation the two thousand nine mcdaniels game. They beat the patriots out there in Denver twenty ten with a weird Cleveland Browns win over the patriots of beep down in Cleveland with day ball at manned Janney. And then there was Patricia earlier this year. Okay. But is this team? Where would you stack up this team at this point compared to last year's team? Not as they're not that same same issue. I mean, all the things that we looked at and said that might be a problem, you know, Trump Nate's older go someplace else Trent Brown comes in. And there's no no drop off defensively, Stefan Gilmore was a hell of a lot of any was last year. I think what's this. What people have to remember is what happened after every single one of those little bitterness bowls. What happens the next week every single time? They wanna tear, and they did it after Patricia this year. They won six in a row until they saw able. All right. Well, I think you know, I look at gronk I think that's a bigger issue here because I wonder you know, what how much longer is growing can apply. I don't think he's going to be back here next year. I don't think there's any way he'll be back here next year. Whether or not he continues playing someplace else remains to be seen. But he's he's got an eleven point seven million dollar cap hit here this year, and they're not getting any return from him. They wanted to get out from under that before this year. He folded his arms and said, I ain't going next year. It's twelve million whatever whatever he wants to do that. They'll put him on a Dolly and wheel amount of town. If they have to have you heard from Tom Brady, you know, with your your tweets, I don't know does he respond to does he follow you? Not directly. I don't think. No, okay. Because I know that you have you you you're an apologist for Tom. And I don't want anything to come in between that relationship is going to be candid, Dan, if you're going to pick one guy to be an apologist for might as well be. Okay. Don't get sensitive. Tommy. Oh, I can sensitivity. You know? Thank you. Tom. Tom e current NBC sports Boston in the way seat made. It sounds like a juicy the tweet, but Tom current. I was like a little he's he doesn't want to admit it, but he's dipping his Tillerson that one I know isn't that the max Kellerman pool that he's dipping his toes into Brady's lost at that could very easily turn into because you know, I told you ten that. He didn't look, right. Yeah. We we love to do that. You know, I told you I reminded you paulie vest and worse for the weekend. Boy hit me out of nowhere. Dan facet of the week. And I got two and they're both army army football is now eight and two thirty one thirteen over Lafi at army football's really good and an army basketball. This is the easiest cover of the year in sports, Duke. I think was given do basketball posting army. I think Duke was given thirty nine or forty in this game. There's no way Mike chef ski on military holiday is going to go full blast on army. They won ninety four to seventy two army. Great cover. Well, that's his all mater too. So I didn't think he'd let him get roughed down. Right. And do you have another one just a bowl thought just best? Okay. Fritzy? My best is temples fifty nine forty nine victory. Seventy Houston with als running back, right? Quayle. Armstead rushing for two hundred and ten yards and a conference record six touchdowns when little off the board with the temple owls running back. We're so the weekend learning that Bryce hopper almost got traded to my Astros back in July, but nationals ownership blocked the deal. Yeah. I saw that. And they weren't giving up much July could have been they were giving up prospects. See no, Connor best. And worst that we best of the weekend was going to the Rams game yesterday. Our friends at Keighley see hooking that up and that was a lot of fun made new friends yesterday. We have a new best friend v. Danette six Stephen Jackson, the former running back BFF's, we're we're just about to like exchange, bracelets. It was that it was that close that all of us hugged him goodbye. Not just for it to you. It was really a fun time. Yeah. Thanks again to Kaley. See that they definitely hooked us up with a with a sweet there, and my even more bestest, though is just it made. It made me feel so good to know. I'm not the only one, but Alan Iverson. Somebody said do you ever go to YouTube and look at your own stuff? And he said, yes, all the time. I love that. I love that. Alan Iverson, watches, his own highlights on YouTube buddy, mccloughan best is I had two great movies on the airplane. The make Jason saith. The shark movie was really fun. Then dead pulled to me laughing so hard the stewardess thought there was something wrong with me. There was a scene in deadpool two. I have you got. I watched it about thirty minutes. I did I didn't like it. No. I understand with the kids in there. Yeah. They get to there's a scene at the end that I it builds on you. My worst is going to be Bobby between. Oh, got fired. They might pop the picture. So they say all this tape coach and show their. Yeah. They're running on the bottom. On the bottom Cheetos getting fired during his own show. So he's tamra. Not good timing. Yeah. Going to happen to do a nicer guy. It's so funny, and he was role in their Louisville and even look at his face in the picture. He knows he's going to be fired. And that's on tape. Clenching down reading. And how about us laughing at his misery? But if I would have said five years ago, I say, you got a trio, and you you got Patino. I mean, you're pretty good. And now you have neither there. I saw ocean's eleven ocean's eight. Oh, yeah. Now, you're in my territory love that movie. I didn't like it at all. Like I wanted to you didn't think Hathaway was delightful. I'm not an Anne Hathaway fin riana re she was nine ball was her character's name. All right. I liked her. I thought she I thought she looked. She looked the part. That's so funny. I would've thought you. It's all your favorite actresses, Sandra. Bullock, you love sandy. She's America's sweetheart Kate Blanchett. But no, I didn't I didn't. It was okay. An hathaway. It was just sort of her playing her character in devil wears Prada. Yes. Okay. You're all right now.

So you were watching the movies that came on the plane. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I saw that one too. Yeah. I didn't watch it. I went by it. But yeah, why forget all of these game shows like they're just certain guys that they just kept plugging play where, you know, be like this guy, wink, Martindale and Bill Cullen in you know, it'd be just the same guys that they would put in and all these game shows, and the fact that Sajakol isn't the original host of wheel of fortune. I think it was Chuck Woolery. And he demanded a pay raise and they had like a sit in where they wouldn't get out of their lock their dressing room. So they fired him and he brought in. You know? Which go. Pat, say Jack. Hello anybody. Well, the pay raise to say like when some of the other any ks three. I don't know why you get a lot more money for that. What? Do you ever regret the way your career sort of started that you had been in that mix of the guys? No because I would be doing. Did see prices, right? I didn't want to do that. And what's the other one that I was up for? Drew? Carey hosting that's price. Right. That's real. Let's make a deal for that one. Yeah. But I wouldn't want to do that. Prices right? Like right down your amount. And no, no, no. Something about what the salary was going to be a big mystery. They were giving me the job. They just said we're not telling you the salary until you accept the job. And I went who does. Well, the price is right. You have to exactly right. If I would've guessed I probably wouldn't have guessed what drew Carey's making. But now, I I didn't want to do that. And drew Carey is far better at it than than I the Steelers should that would leave you on bell. We'll take a break last. Call for phone calls. Good. Good rebound there.

Radio part of your SP nation. Family of PODCASTS. I'm your host Ed Valentine Big Blue View. Today's show comes to you on Friday March. Twenty seven as we wrap up another week with the of free agency and another week of of the off season in the NFL. A few minor signings to talk about for the giants this week at a couple of of players. They added wide receiver. Kick returner Corey Coleman. They added running back. Dion Lewis giants also added. Xfl cornerback driven S. Q Henry who happens to be a cousin of derail rebus. Just you know minor signings. This is what you get into at this point in free agency Guys who who might have a role guys who could be useful guys who Who provide depth in various places? I was glad to see the giants bring back. Korey Coleman kick returner wide receiver at this point. I'm not sure what Coleman will bring the giants as a wide receiver in A. He's been a little bit hit and miss throughout his career. A bit of a disappointment as the fifteenth overall pick of the Cleveland browns. A few years back. But Coleman is still a guy who provides a lot of speed you know some playmaking ability. He's a guy who did a really really good job in two thousand eighteen for the giants as a kick returner in. That's a rule where or spot where the giants did kind of struggle last year. They went through a lot of guys. Corey Ballantyne did a good job for a little while than the giants moved on from him. You know when they started to use more defensively cody. Latimer is a guy who had some opportunities latimer now with the Washington redskins but kick return even punt return where Coleman was was maybe going to get some opportunities late in the season in two thousand eighteen. Those are areas where the giants have really struggled to find one guy who could hold down those roles the last the last few seasons. Maybe Coleman Kin Can establish himself as the giants. Primary Return. Man. Maybe he can add some some playmaking ability with his speed. You know as a as a fourth or fifth wide receiver you have to have depth. You have to have you know guys who can fill specific roles for you and maybe Coleman can do that for the giants. He still a guy with a lot of athleticism speed so. I was happy to see him. You know get an opportunity to come back and show Whether or not he can help the giants in the twenty twenty season Dion Lewis. Obviously a guy very familiar to head coach. Joe Judge you know from their days together with the New England patriots. Little bit older at this point. I believe this will be Lewis's age thirty season coming up. Maybe not the explosive player that he used to be still though a useful. Backup for SAQUON. Barkley guy who can catch passes a guy who can block pass protect if you check out the the film study that Nick Balado did for us on Lewis you see examples of his ability to pass protect you see examples of how useful he can be you know as a as a as a receiving threat so check that out if you haven't but again a useful signing it's been kind of obvious for a while that the giants have been down on wing Goldman. The Pat Shurmur coaching staff was down on. Golman I'm not really sure why but it seemed like they never really gave him. You know a full a full fledged opportunity and it would appear with the signing of Louis. It would appear that that goal man is is not going to be a guy that That The new Joe Judge Coaching Staff is going to lean on heavily either so hopefully the Louis signing which was for one year on which you know that's a good idea just a short contract not an expensive one give. Barkley some some rest and support in an ad to the giants ability to pass protect for Daniel Jones in critical situations. That's something where we're saquon. Barkley as great a player as he is that something where he struggled last year so maybe in certain situations Lewis can help in that area. The signing cornerback D- Raven. Askew Henry I really don't know anything about him again or on Nick. Faldo did a film study that that dropped on Thursday morning. Police check that out guy who has some ability to play in the slot guy who has maybe some ability to play deep safety. He's done both of those things in the past guy who should compete in the in the slot for the giants. You know a spot where we know that. They struggled mightily a year ago with with grant. Haley who's a terrific run-defender a guy who struggles in coverage inquiry ballantyne playing there as a rookie guy? Who probably is a better outside corner guy who had never played in the slot and often looked overmatched. I'd love to see the giants. Actually Give Corey Ballantyne an opportunity to get back out on the outside in in compete for some time there maybe as an extra defensive back in some situations maybe as the as the third corner you know. Come to compete. Maybe with Sam Bill you know for you know for time behind James bradberry and De'andre Baker. Who will be your your likely starters on the outside for the giants are a giants fans. You know we know that As the giants have tried to build their defense through free agency a couple of the players that they signed came from the Green Bay packers. That would be inside linebacker. Blake Martinez an edge. Rusher cuyler fat girl ahead an opportunity to speak with Evan Western of SP nations acne packing company about what both of those guys might bring to the New York giants so let me play that interview for you now in as we try to learn some things about two of the newest giants giants fans. I'm joined now by Evan. Western of SB nations acme packing company. Which covers the the Green Bay packers? And I asked Evan to to come on to talk about a couple of the the free agents that the giants Recently signed meaning Linebacker Blake Martinez and edged defender. Cuyler factual Evan. Thank you very much for spending some time. Yeah my pleasure had said it was good hanging out with you. A little bit of Indian Always happy to talk current and former packers. There you go. You know it's interesting I think you and I. In a couple of other espy nation. Folks were in Indian and weirdly working in this great big ballroom and I didn't. I didn't get to meet everybody but it was nice to it was nice to to run into you and and get to to meet another Espy nation writer. Yeah same here that's The networking piece of that event is always one of the best best parts of it. So it's always a good time to get to know other people around the network. We we work in one of those weird weird environments where it's all Internet based in in we know all the names but we don't know the faces so so it's always nice to put a name to a face definitely all right so let's talk a little bit A little bit about The the free agents that that the giants signed former packers in an first. Let's talk a little bit about Martinez. Giants fans were are have been looking for linebacker help. They've been begging for linebacker help for years. It's been thirty some years now since the giants have drafted a linebacker in the first round. The last one was Carl banks and I think that was nineteen eighty. Three or eighty four. So it's been a long long time you know and the giants have tried some free agents over the years hit and miss. What are they getting in Blake Martinez? I know they're getting a guy with a lot of tackles but is he an impact defender or are the tackles sort of Sort of a misleading number. Yes Martinez what you have is a guy who he will clean up if the line in front of him does a good job keeping him clean. That's his best years in his best games in Green Bay. Have Been When Kenny Clark Mike Daniels and some of those bigger guys up front have been occupying the blockers and allowing him to floated the football. He's a fairly instinctive guy especially in the run game. He does seem to to read blocks well. to to to read to the ball carrier but he does struggle a little bit shedding blocks and with some of his low. F- lettuce in pass protection. But you're getting a guy who yeah he's GonNa make A Lotta sure tackles. He's not going to blow a lot of tackles And and he's got some pretty good blitzing ability as well if that's something that the giants plan to use him for his he's got some some real good abilities as an interior blitzer coming off the gap. But I think the biggest area where you've got to worry about him a little bit pass coverage because that's been one of the the spots where he's been picked on the last couple of years so is he terrible past defender an adequate past defender. Where what would you say you know? His his ability level is in pass coverage. I would put him somewhere in the below average category His numbers this past year weren't weren't great He he tends to not make a whole lot of plays on the football but when he does Get Out in pass coverage. He's at least stopping guys for relatively short gains but You get him matched up against an athletic tight end of a really athletic pass catching running back. We see them against like the likes of Christian. Mccaffrey last couple of years on delve and cook. Those are the match ups where he's really gonNA struggle is against those real athletic guys But but yeah I would say somewhere in that below average category. He's not gonNA absolutely kill year defense with With that ability the packers still kept him on the field for all three downs. Played almost every. Snap the last three plus years But it's not going to be something that's going to be a net. Positive is having him out there in pass coverage and as I as I listened to you say that I can just I? I'm envisioning giants. Fans you know gnashing their teeth and going crazy and screaming about Dave settlements signing another inside linebacker. Who can't you know cover anybody and just want to remind people blake? Martinez is replacing allegory. Who not only couldn't cover anybody. But was the guy calling the giants defensive signals and couldn't even himself lined up right half the time so so it's gotTa be a net gain. Yay and and I will say this for Blake. He's a very intelligent guy and he did the same thing he called the signals for my patents. Defense in Green Bay and that's definitely an area the communication aspect where it should be a positive He understands the the schemes he will understand What everybody's supposed to be doing on a given play Stanford Educated Guy. He's he's very intelligent. That shouldn't be an issue You know what he does when he's on the field. That's you know once the ball is snapped. That may be a different story. But at least in terms of the communication aspect and getting people lined up I would have no qualms about that whatsoever with him and are we looking at a guy you know if you look at some of the advanced analytics. I think it was sports info solutions that posted this number that I saw recently about the fact that that his tackles are often made. You know something like five yards. Beyond the line of scrimmage which isn't ideal obviously you know for for an inside linebacker. Is that something? We should be concerned about. Is that something? That's that's been impacted. More by what happens in front of him you know or is he really what we would call cleanup tackler. Yeah I think. A big part of that has been the packers. Just General Defensive Philosophy. Is they play light. They always play light to sometimes. One down lineman usually five or six defensive backs on basically every play their base defense last year was effectively a two three six with a hybrid safety playing linebacker At the other inside linebacker spot as well as a slot corner so the lion has has been light Ever since Patten arrived for the start of two thousand eighteen and I think that's at least partially responsible. I think if you if you are in a philosophy that puts more of a a priority on stopping the run and allowing Allowing your line to to occupy blockers and letting your linebackers floated the football unimpeded. I think he's going to be better in that type of system. Well that's good news because the giants do spend a lot of a lot of capital you know obviously with signing with having Leonard Williams on the franchise tag and using a first round pick on Dexter Lawrence a year ago. They spent a lot of capital on that on that Down Linemen Group. So so hopefully they can provide. Martinez a little better cover. That would definitely be a positive for him.

So let's talk a little bit about the other former packer who the giants signed in this. You know this was a one year deal. I believe it was four point six million dollars and you have four edge rusher cuyler fat girl and for all intents and purposes fat girl takes the place of Marcus golden who signed a one year deal a year ago with the giants and and had a good a really good season for New York But is now a free agent and doesn't appear to be to be coming back. What what's the deal with? Cuyler fat girl ten ten or ten and a half sacks in two thousand eighteen in basically a a bit player last year. Who who had one sack so so. What are the giants getting here? Yeah you mentioned exactly. The the thing I wanted to point out was was Farrell sort of F- Lucas seeming year in two thousand eighteen in his third year. That year was that that was the year before. Obviously the packers invested heavily in the edge. Rusher position last off season signings areas and Preston Smith so falcons role was really scaled. Back for twenty nineteen. That's that's the first thing In two thousand eighteen he was playing He essentially became the team's second starter at outside linebacker opposite. Clay Matthews When when Nick Perry basically was was unavailable for the entire year and in doing that he played around sixty percent or so the team snaps started about half of the Games the thing with FAC role was His his pressure rate was pretty low And I think he he got a very unsustainable number of sex given the number of pressures that he had. I'm looking at at pro football reference. Right now he had a total of eighteen. Pass pressures recorded any at ten and a half sacks I mean that's not a sustainable rate. He he got pressure on the quarterback at a relatively similar rate in twenty nineteen. He just didn't have all this acts to show for for for whatever reason so I think that's more of just a regression For him but the interesting thing with with factual he came out of Utah. State is an older player. I think he he entered the NFL around twenty four years old or so and He was a fairly athletic. You know movable guy but he was a little on the lighter side so it seemed like he was a little bit of an odd fit for the packers At that address her position and it really took him a couple of years to to start to carve out a niche as a key reserve on that team and then again in two thousand eighteen he ended up having to take over a much bigger role out of necessity but In this past season he was essentially the third man in that outside linebacker rotation ended up playing roughly forty percent or so of the defensive snaps and he's also been a special teams player I would just be hesitant Looking at that ten and a half Si Sak season to think that you're gonNA see a similar level of production from him if he's a full time starter Just because of how Again the the pressure rate was low but the the number of sacks relative to the pressures was unsustainably high. Sounds like you're you're telling us you know. Obviously I think you used the term fluke ish for that ten and a half a season you you know so it sounds like you're telling us that we should expect more like what we've seen or or the numbers. He put up in his other three seasons than than what we saw in in two thousand eighteen. And my correct yeah. I think it's more realistic to expect. something in the in the range of four to six sacks if he plays you know seventy five percents of the snaps. I think that's more of a realistic range to look for from him. Is he a guy who who who can drop and cover and and do some of that if he needs to? Yeah it's actually interesting. That's actually one of the better parts of his game As an edge rusher I feel like I also remember thinking back to early on in his career that he he made a comment early on That he was actually felt very comfortable doing that. maybe even more so than than rushing the passer in his first year or two with Green Bay So that's definitely an area where he's got some ability and condemned help out if those addresses are going to be dropping into coverage. I find it interesting that Patrick Graham is now the giants defensive coordinator and the one really outstanding statistical year. That fat girl had came with with grandma's his position coach. I mean could this be a case of of the giants. Maybe you know just with Graham sort of trying to recreate what might have happened in Green Bay in two years ago. Yeah that's entirely possible and one of the things that we've seen in Green Bay over the last couple of years is guys who are who are extensively edge rushers also lining up kind of all over the formation playing a little bit inside linebacker off ball. Linebacker rushing from a gaps instead of off the tackle. And I think if you move him around a little bit that probably gives him some different opportunities to maybe use some different moves and put some different skills to use and that. If that's the way they're intending on using him I think that would be a good A good plan for for Fakhro getting the most out of his his skills. Hey before I let you go I have to ask you about one other player and that would be a former giant. Vj Goodson who was who was picked up by Green Bay. You know at the end of of preseason a year ago played the year for the packers I think he he may have technically been starter. But I'm not sure he was actually on the field. That was really that he was really playing starter. Snaps IN I? I did see that. The packers moved on from him. So I'm just curious what you guys got out of out of. Bj Goodson and why you let him go. Yeah I think Goodson played a solid role as the second off ball linebacker on the rare occasions when the packers did play more a conventional three four With those two inside linebackers again with with the way patent likes to play He really loves to put those safeties in that second. Linebacker spot Guys like Raven Green and Abraham Campbell ended up being the the players who ended up taking the MO- snaps there but But goodson was on the field about twenty five percent of the time or sell Certainly provided some some good run support on. I think that was the biggest thing that that he brought to the team Actually you know packers fans were kind of national teeth a little bit during the NFC. Championship game When the forty niners were running over around and through the defense consistently Try to figure out why goods and didn't get in the game sooner because They clearly needed to find a way to stop the run and that was one of the things. That goods was Was Excelling at during the season last year. So it's a little bit of a disappointment that maybe he didn't get a chance to To get a little bit more playing time last year Maybe some of that is due to his fairly late arrival in towards the end of training camp but I think you know He. He could certainly be a useful player for Cleveland and again. I think he was just a victim of defensive coordinator who really downplays run defense In favor of putting lighter more athletic players on the field all right. Hey appreciate your spending some time with me. I dropping some knowledge on us about Blake Martinez in Cuyler FAC role in. You know giants giants fans. I'm sure we'll be. We'll be crossing their fingers and hoping for the best especially especially when it comes to to Martinez. Yeah definitely and again with these two guys. They're great locker room guys.

Well to the fantasy footballers podcast coming to you from draft dot com studios with your hose, Andy Holloway, Jason Moore and Mike, right. Oh, come in. So excited to be with you this morning. The fantasy footballers. Jason Morris here. Yeah, yeah, I am here. That is correct. Wow. Just look in preparation for the show. Yeah, I'm already. I mean, the shows rolling. I'm still doing research digging in deep because I want, you know, that's how they normally do it on the tests at school. You want to be doing your study right up, right. We might go further tests. I'm browsing here. The game log of two thousand fifteen for Ryan. Fitzpatrick dude was great. He had three games that whole year where he didn't throw multiple touchdowns and in one of those, he threw three hundred yards. This was decker in Marshall. Yeah, an-and wall. Okay. Odd, Wendy, Jack, I was j Howard Mike Evans I was considering how difficult I find it mentally to rank Ryan Fitzpatrick because of our upcoming quick question and no longer. No. We were going to say because of beard bias, which is one of the reasons I can't. I have a hard time working with Mike. I can't. I grew up. I grew up in an environment where we didn't tolerate men with beards. No, not if that length. No, that's a good. That's a good environment Indy right. Right, right. Mike is here, hey, do you? Are you having any deep Contemplacion's on Ryan Fitzpatrick this morning. Oh, that's good rubbing. I don't know if that's gonna come on the audio podcast. Just turn it up. It was rank. It was Mike saying, no, with his beard, I got beard kisses from a microphone. We have a great show today. Fantasy forecasts starts of the week, Jason's boom, boom, kicker. We did a Reddit AMA yesterday. And one of the first questions was like, why is your audio quality? So great. And then you know, it's my beers. We can capture the beard. That's why you have to cover your bases. All right. Quick question for week three. Who's been the hardest player for you to rank? Okay. You can go to the website the fancy footballers dot com. Use the start, sit tool. Click on the ranking, see who we have ranked for week three who's been the hardest player for you to rank all? Certainly not Ryan Fitzpatrick was moving up. Yeah. No. For me, I one I would say it is a Carson Wentz. I am not afraid. You know, I, I said this yesterday. I'm not afraid of him coming back, but I am a little worried about the weapons. I mean, whenever your team goes out and signs, Jordan Mathews, you know, you've got an issue, hey, Darren, sproles might not play, which you know is a great a, you know, pass catching running back. So it's just galore. And if agriculure goes to the outside because of Jordan, Mathews. There's just slight concern here, but the matchup is good. Carson Wentz is good. And so I'm I'm pretty confident in him, but there's a smidge of worry scissor the first game back. Yeah, I came back. I'll jump in here the hardest for me to rank New England, Patriots running back Rex Burkhead Rex birkenstocks Rex goat had, what do we do Rex bench head with? What do we do with him? Because week one, he came out played fifty percent of New England snaps at the running back position, had twenty one opportunities against the Houston Texans. Then he had the weird injury week. He was in the concussion protocol what was happening. He came out, he actually started the game and then vanished because the New England Patriots were in such a negative game script that everything went in the favor of James white. And so now what do you do. It because this is a great match up for the for the patriots. They should be. They should have a nice lead over the Troy lines. This weekend. Only Michelle just got back in right made his first appearance last week. I'm sure that was part of what eight into Rex Burkhead and now that you know, presumably he's even more healthy and could take more volume. It's a problem. There's a too many variables fly for my comp look you. You probably have to. You might have to start it. If you are in a situation where you know there are a number of injured running backs. There are people that maybe you don't have confidence in, but let's put it to the test, right? I mean, we all have birkhead ranked outside the top twenty four. We haven't been the thirty range this week, which is, you know, that's Peyton Barbara. Isaiah Crowell range. Yeah, I have him back to back with kerryon Johnson, and so that should show carry on's the third on a depth chart and is not a guy that you want to start yet. I would start birkhead over on. I would too. He is ahead. And in my rankings by one, mostly because I think New England's going to be a head in this game. That's why it's riddick's going to go out there and ruin Jason's life. Yeah, that's what he does. I'm gonna stick with the patriots. The hardest guy from metering this week. Maybe the rest of the season's going to be Chris HOGAN. Now he had one reception in week one. He had three last week. Now two of them were touchdowns, but four receptions on the years. Not what we expected from Chris HOGAN going into week three. He's not been the go-to target monster that we hoped for. And I look, I haven't lower than the other two guys in this office. I am at twenty two this week against Troy. Jason's up at fifteen. Mike. You got him at eighteen. I just have a problem with HOGAN right now and look. I would try to get rid of. That's what I would do because coming off a two touchdown week, Adam is going to be back. Yes, Gordon may not play this week or may be very limited, and it's going to take time for Gordon to get involved from target and snap count percentage standpoint, but he still going to be there and he's still going to be involved. So when you talk about all the different pieces, now's the time that I'd try to give rid of Chris, HOGAN. What do you guys think? Yeah, I get your argument for the arrow trending down on Chris HOGAN as the season progresses with Gordon and Elman coming back. I am not worried about, you know, I've got him as my wide receiver fifteen. That's what I expect a big week from HOGAN. So if you're not able to capitalize on his five target, three reception multi touchdown game this past week. I think you might have a great opportunity next week if he if he puts up another good game in Detroit, which I think he will. You'll be able to get more and have more people interested in. In Chris HOGAN is a bit baffling similar to birkhead 'cause we're only two games in very small sample, and it's hard to make any conclusions from that Jacksonville game. No one on the patriots. Offense was lighting things up. Rob gronkowski got completely shut down. James white led the team in targets in it's it's hard to really gleam anything from that data. Now that makes a lot of sense in normally takes New England a little bit of time on both sides of the ball, right, to figure out their rhythm and what they're so old. It's just they have to ease into it. Yeah, it takes plants, longtime time to grow. But it's true. I will speaking about the plant, man. He's gotta get the leaves out getting those beams of light. Modo synthesis. Thank you. Mike Bill are Bill Nye. Twitter at the f. ballers you can follow Mike science takes over there. They're hot. Yeah, very, very impressive. The fantasy football dot com.

Head coach said Larry FitzGerald is going to play in week three against Chicago. He's at home Jason. I read some of your advice on Larry FitzGerald yesterday, and it was all based around if he's at home. You're okay starting. Yeah, this week against a good Chicago, even I do. I think that the Scotto defense is good. The pass rush is going to be good, but Larry is he is last year he went to the Los Angeles Rams and put up three for thirty. Okay. Last year last season when he had a hundred receptions on Gotch a thousand yards, he still had a bad game in Los Angeles. I realized this offense looks worse, but I think you can play Larry FitzGerald at home in front of this crowd against the bears for I mean, for sure if you're now, if you're in a standard league, I'm less excited about it because touchdowns seem like they will be lower than the last several years for honors this Gerald. Or non existent. But if you're in a PR league, happy PR Larry's funny, Melvin Gordon's practicing and full case keenum was not practicing. Wednesday cautionary do not practice, and he's expected to practice Thursday and play Sunday in Baltimore reminder on Fridays we do in and out, and we give you our judgment call on who's going to play and who's not going to play. Evan Ingram was limited by an ankle injury on Wednesday. We'll cover that tomorrow. GIO limited in Wednesday's practice. That's interesting because just saving them up the workload for geo and Walton I'm telling you it's going to be more split than you think. I do not think the geo Bernard is going to carry the bona fide load in this game. I do. Yeah, I do as I get it. I get it. That's fine. But I'm just giving you my take on that. Mike McCarthy said, Aaron Jones is gonna play. He's active. He's gonna play behind Jamal Williams and time on Gumri. That was McCarthy's quote. He said Jamal and tie played good football. I know what Aaron gives us, but his role be secondary. Let's debate this because I am of the conviction taking victory laps already. It's he needs to taken a single snap needs to do it. Now, Jason to take any pre victory lap, he can because he's going to be end up wrong here. I'm going to end up, right? I'm without a doubt going to an upright this week and next week, if you wanna talk long. Term say, that's how we've talked about. Aaron Jones is long term. We were talking yesterday on the show about Aaron Jones is coming back, and I said, look, Aaron Jones is probably their best running back as far as just talent and remove the word probably from. He's the best running. Thank you. But Mike McCarthy is not. It doesn't matter because Jamal Williams is going to be the one that Mike McCarthy has on the field, especially right now, while Aaron Rodgers is still still dealing with the knee injury, and you need your best pass blocker there and then to have him come out and say, the Aaron Jones, who's a good player, and he likes, we'll be secondary. Why would we not believe that? Well, it's not about believing it or not. Believing is just common sense. You don't need to say it a guys coming off a suspension. Two guys have played two games. The coach is not going to say, why aren't Jones is going to walk into a starting role. He never even said that in the preseason about Aaron Jones. I think what Mike and I believe is what happens in football is the best player plays and win. The poop hits the fan. You just put your best players out there to score points. That's all you do. If only that were always true but it but it's not Drake would be a workhorse. Is it not all it's? Yeah, there's certainly instances where it is not always true, but there's, I believe for the for the Packers, there will be only so much time they can watch Jamal Williams and then watch Aaron Jones, get sprinkled in and make an impact he ever Sean play. He has five point five yard was unbelievable. Perry last year, Jamal Williams. His goal list is three point nine. I mean, that's he every morning wakes up. He says, I hope I can get to three point. Nine, I'd I different. I believe he can do it though. Yeah, I well, that's you're, you're in his corner and I get it. I think it'll take two weeks so that that leaves you three quarters of a season. Two. I'm buying Aaron Jones. I may trade offers for and Jones. I like it. That's where I'm at. Lancaster long term certainly has the highest cdot this week. He gets the role. I mean, I I like Aaron Jones. I just don't believe he will get that role that you guys believe. I believe it's a fifty fifty shot. He has more fantasy points than the other two this week on one play man. 'cause that's all I know you won't bet on a fifty fifty, but no, I won't, but I'm just starting out there. Well, Jarvis Landry listed questionable for tonight's game. He's expected to play. If you watched hard knocks in your halston to him, talk about playing contagion Zred. I don't think he's gonna miss. He better not. No, he doesn't have a choice if he misses everyone else is going to start missing games 'cause it's it's contagious. It's contagious. Anything else you guys want to cover it as rough that is rough to now be publicly known for that? Yeah, for that speech which you better know, it's just it when you take that stance, if you're marketing, if you're Mark is a queue, you better. Right? Yep, that's good for fantasy owners. Right? You're starting him night? Yes. All right. Let's move on. Dan SE forecast. We have. We've got your Thursday night reminder. If you are playing Jarvis Landry tonight, take him out of your flex position slot him right into that wide receiver position. Don't find yourself backed into a corner on Sunday with some sort of frappes Luke injury Lutely and in today's game is the type of game that has flex players Carlos Hyde Blau Powell is Ahah Crowell. Those are players that you probably have in your flex, get them out, put them in your running back or why. If someone asked me on Twitter when I was talking about, I don't remember which player hide or someone as yeah, he's flex worthy this week and they're saying, Mike, why are you telling people to put him in your flex? And I'm saying, no, I'm speaking of as a flex pleasant. He is the third option for your team. So if you're starting him though, he needs to go into the running back position. Yeah. All right. The saints. They traveled to Atlanta to take on the foul. Gins falcons or three point favorites. Both teams are one in one, and this game has a fifty three point over under. Now, the interesting thing is is last year we in both of these teams played both the gains hit the under. They were not the fantasy explosions. You expected. They were defensive battles, Atlanta one, twenty two seventeen New Orleans. One twenty three thirteen. Doesn't mean that's gonna take place this year. Obviously, Vegas has it as a high scoring affair, but it's been interesting this season the the saints have not found it yet Br, Dave, not been the team. You expected them to be now they came back to win against the Browns, but they were being dominated most of that game. And one of the more interesting facts so far in the season. Saints are dead last in the league in rushing yards per game. They're normally the league leader by a lot. Now, no, Mark Ingram, they've been playing from behind. I mean, so maybe that's why. But right now, I don't think the saints are gonna win this game. I, I was going to ask you because I know Andy to to give you a little too. You are usually very above average when it comes to calling the game lines. And so I was curious your tape because I had a hard time here. You know deciding you've got the falcons at home, but the saints have to get a. I mean, both these game, both these teams really need the victory in conference. One thing that's interesting about, you know, you look at last year. These were hopeful barn burners and it didn't work out. But if you think about it last year, both of these defences were far better than the expectation going into the season. The saints defense was great. The falcons defense was very good. And now you have the falcons who have lost two key piece from their defense and the saints. Like you just said, don't have it together. So I'm still believing that this will be a high scoring. I took the over on this game and I I want all the pieces on both sides of the ball. Yeah, since week, twelve of last year, the saints have allowed in average of twenty nine point eight fantasy points per game too. Wide receivers. That's dead last in the NFL and Julio averages. Ninety yards a game against the saints. You're not doubting the Julio star, but can you flex a guy like Mohamed sanu? Can you play a guy like Austin, Hooper, man? I mean, I would rather not. I guess when I say fire up all the pieces, I'm speaking of, you know, all the normal Tevin Coleman. I'm totally fine with Matt Ryan breeze chimera Michael Thomas, you know, all of the main guys. If there was one player, I was going to try to take a shot on its. It would probably be Calvin Ridley interesting. Calvin over sin new. What do you guys think about that? I wouldn't myself, but I, I get more explosive more exciting for sixty four with a touchdown. This past weekend? Yeah, it was a. It was a good performance for the rookie he did play on fifty five percent of the snail. Which was actually down from week one. Man, sin new hasn't had twenty yards yet. I mean, I know it's only two games but you know, sure. Eighteen yards nineteen yards. I I don't think I can take that leap to to make him a starter Ted Ginn or Ted Ginn. Okay. Like Ted Ginn in this match. So Tevin Coleman. This is interesting Graham bar field on Twitter tweeted this out. He's played five career games. Now were devante Freeman has missed or played less than five percent of the snaps. Here's his averages in those games. Good. Good averages, seventy percent, snap rate, nineteen point. Eight touches per game. Yeah. Ninety five yards from scrimmage. Almost sixteen fantasy points are locked and loaded starting to have in Coleman. One hundred. The real question is whether as a fantasy owner, you'd go try to grab him. Would you trade a season-long piece to get to having Coleman? Because you worry about devante Freeman, availability, season-long, like let's say, Freeman, look, he's not gonna play this week. Most likely he could miss more time. But even if he comes back, this is a residual injury. So just heaven Coleman, snap counts. Are they consistent to the point where you're like, man, this guy is find to play every week even with Freeman. Yeah, I would not doubt it. I have tried to make some offers for Freeman, it's really or for Tevin Coleman. It's very difficult because there's a real tear break between the guys that truly are season-long starters. And then the guys that maybe. Take Carlos Hyde right? You try to take trade Carlos Hyde for seven Coleman. Most people still don't really fully believe that call us had will be a season long. That's interesting trade right there, but I wouldn't do very interest. I would absolutely trade away Carlos Hyde to receive Kevin. Would you trade away marshawn Lynch to get to having Coleman? I think so. I think that I think that marshawn 's average games compared to seven Coleman's games, once Freeman is back, won't be that far off. So if I can capitalize on two or three or maybe four huge games. In the meantime, I would, I would do it. Mike. Would you rather have Chris Thompson or Kevin Coleman? That's a really good question. I would rather have Chris Thompson? Yeah, lean Thompson. All right before to the rest of them? Yeah. Just are you guys wanting to, let's say you're in a in a league, twelve team sixpence spots. So a little bit deeper. Are you stashing ITO Smith, falcons running back? I'm not. Okay. I mean he was nine for forty. Six. No. Look if free me more news about Freeman. Yeah, yeah, for Freeman, and that's the thing is you would have to grab him before the news breaks. I don't think it's worth it. Okay. I'd rather have exer- for example. Yes, someone like that. Sure. Before we get into the rest of the match ups, we got starts started the week coming up. I'm excited about that. Let's think seatgeek for sponsoring today's show.

Slash fantasy footballers the two and Broncos traveled to Baltimore to take on the one, one ravens. The ravens are a difficult team to rank as well. They played buffalo. You're distorting all of the statistics. When you play buffalo this year, if you've only played two games now the ravens are five and a half point home favorites forty four point over under and lots of question marks through both of these lineups confidence levels. Look, we're gonna talk through Philip Lindsay Royce Freeman, John Brown, Alex Collins, like there are a lot of the aren't. A lot of must start players on either these teams as a lot of maybe start. So what do you think the biggest story line is? Because both of these teams have defenses that are historically known as great defenses in both seem like they're more maybe they're good. Maybe they're not great. So maybe there's some value there? Yeah, I think the biggest question for most people out there's Alex Collins. He's been a disappointment so far you've got the Volcker of voice buck Allen taking the touchdown. You know, away last week I am. Okay. Starting Alex Collins in this matchup I've got him as an Rb to in the in the twenty s so he's not. He's certainly not a guy that I think you, like you said he's not a half to start, but I would probably start him. He is at home in a favored matchup. That's usually good. Alex. Collins has has played well at home. You know, I think I, I would give my recommendation to start him against most other players. I would start Alex Collins over Dion Lewis. This week, I would start Alex Collins over James white this week of star, Alex Collins over Philip Lindsey in this same game, but it's not a vote of Alex Collins is a must start, and you know, you get, you know, I would start Giovanni Bernard over outs concert. That's kind of where I see him slotting in their at home, their favorites. So there is an opportunity there for them to need to be running the ball east according to what Vegas thinks is going to happen. Now, the Broncos go on the road case keenum fourteen completions of twenty plus yards this season. He has weapons right the Mary's. Thomas Emmanuel. Sanders in Cortlandt Sutton only one reception last week last year from slut or last week from Sutton. But sh again, Oklahoma kind of believe that that was a touchdown taking away from Sutton Lazovic. So what do. Do we do with case keenum on the road here is this just hands off? I mean you don't want to go into Baltimore and worry about case keenum. Correct? Yeah. He certainly could come through this is not a a doubt. It's playing the probability of keenum on the road of. We saw the red rifle just explode Andy Dong crust. The ravens for an was dominant for fantasy purposes and just not sure I don't have that level of confidence. Is that translate to Thomas and Sander station? Yes, it does. I moved Emmanuel Sanders significantly down my rankings. You saw him hobble the little bit last week. You saw Mary's Thomas hobbled a little bit last week if those guys are banged up against the ravens in Baltimore, that does not bode well so far this season, the ravens have been all right. They didn't really show up last week. I think they thought they were way better than they were based on week one Baltimore, but you can't. We've been saying this can't just look at this season. If you look at last year, the ravens, they were the second most. Difficult teamed play for quarterbacks and wide receivers, they locked down. I mean that that is kind of what they do. So I, I'm, I'm not high on the Denver passing attack. Let's talk a firm minute about a player that I think is going to be at the top of our start sit tool. Most asked questions this week, which is Philip, Lindsey, people want to know, can they play him? Philip Lindsay is rushed for ninety nine yards up the middle of this season. That is the most in the NFL. So for those of you that are looking at Philip, Lindsey, that stature, what he's built like you need to. You need to compare more to Dion Lewis than you do a guy like Chris Thompson, he is not all on the outside. He is not all about receptions. They're using him as a running back. As a power back. I mean, they arrive and they're like, bring in the little guy. Well, I mean, there are players like that. This is the easiest come, but I mean, Darren sproles gets he's had opportunities through his career to run up the middle. Danny Woodhead was used a lot on. They see what's fifteen for seventy one in week one fourteen for one. Oh, seven in week to only three receptions on the year. So you're treating him like a regular running back to you, play him over a guy like Dion Lewis this week who has to face Jacksonville, who would you start in that situation? While I've got Dion Lewis a little bit ahead of Philip Lindsay, Philip Lindsey was my pump, the brakes this week, and that's not to say you cannot play him. Philip Lindsay, you know, he's in the twenty s for my ranking. I worry being in Baltimore. I worry about him being on the road for the first time in his NFL career. I, you know, I went back. I watched the film and I'm Philip Lindsey believer. He's a good player. He's not. You know, he's not just running through wide open holes and anybody could do it. He's breaking tackles. He's shifty. So I'm not. I'm not saying you have to bench him, but I'm not excited about this matchup. I'm the only guy that I think, you know, I look at in this game and I would say, you know, I, I would really like to take a shot if I'm because everybody here in both sides of the game is just a, I feel like is a one I closed art through like you could see the board, but your depth perceptions a little off who's who's playing darts close on one of their eyes. That's I'm too good at Dr. Is how you aimed on Brown w blame a lot with one eye, not when you're playing darts. You really can see when you have a sight or a scope. Yes, you go. Don't use this dope when you played all the scope. All I see is the bulls eye. I put the scope of and then it's just Allred baby baby. They do. I, you know, Monaco, but it's all it's painted black. I believe that's called an eye patch. That's what I do. Are you saying pets go real expensive monocle I spray base rate black because you wanna look, I want to be sophisticated a regular eyepatches. That's more pirate. I mean. Gotcha. Yeah, put it this way. I took the never seen a pirate of the monocle have you. That's when you never wanna be mistaken as a pirate. Just speaking from experience. This is the game in general with a little bit of light, rain too. Good defenses to mediocre offenses. I'm taking the under and if I can look elsewhere for most of these players that's that's Crabtree or giambra like. I feel like we've been on this match for long enough, but John John ran has to be talked about the. That's why I asked question Mike nineteen point. One yards per of that's his average depth of target. The man is just bathing an area hards and and he's getting target volume now last week it was a little bit different when he had the ten targets because they had to come back. They were the ravens were scrambling. But week one had four targets has touchdown. Both weeks is John Brown, a locked and loaded wide receiver. Three, yes. Yeah, I agree. I agree. The giants take on the Texans in the battle of the winless terrified fan bases. The giants look, it's been a struggle, keeping ally manning upright so far this year. The Texans have not picked up where they left off with your Chaumont and he's he had a good fantasy week last week, and I actually really liked to Shawn Watson this week. 'cause the giants are just a sieve. On defense, or I expect them to be this week on the road. So what are the big storylines in this game? What are you guys looking for? I mean you you're not. Are you afraid of Beckham in at all? No, not just in this game, but year long on the basis that look, this team may struggle on offense. He's my number one target. I mean people all one of the more calm number one, a trait target. Yes. One of the more common questions we get every week is like, you know who, who would you try to trade for right now? And my answer this week Izzo Beckham he hasn't popped. People are worried about the offense, but he's a guy that doesn't. He doesn't need some great offense like he can trade off himself. He needs a slant route that he takes the house. So yeah, I'm I'm not worried about Odal. Nobody should be sitting him in any matchup, Evan Ingram. I Evan Ingram is I mean he's a must start. Yeah, wh. What? How many titans are you starting over Evan Ingram. Four. Yeah, maybe four or five. You obviously playing saquon and you're not thinking about anybody else on New York. So on the Houston side, look last year, the giants gave up the most fantasy points to posing quarterbacks in the league. Love to Shawn Watson, yes, should be. It should be an excellent bounceback Shawn Watson with will fuller his different than to Shawn Watson without him. That is correct. So I really like the opportunity there. Lamar Miller has been solid if not spectacular. He's been. He's, he's just been Lamar. He's giving you Lamar. I think this is a really good week. We'll talk about him in a little bit, but the match up last year. And so far what we've seen from the giants this year, they're not able to stop the run or anything I took the over in this game. It's a tack Vegas is not expect a lot of points scored here, but I actually. Think that this game could be surprising, fantasy relevant game two teams that desperately need a victory with. You know, one of the defenses does not look good and the other is not looked up to the expectation, right? Everyone's waiting for the Texans to figure it out. And so far they haven't done so to the point where their head coach is Vegas odds on favorite to be the first coach fired this year, right? That's the interesting thing we, we figured it'd be Hugh, but no, not after that tie. That's right. Becky start that's year in years for for the let's talk titans and Jags the titans. Got the win last week over the affirmation Texans. Now they traveled Jacksonville, good luck taking on the tuna. Oh, Jaguars. They don't know if they're going to have Mariana. Yeah, that's weird. That's weird. It's just weird what? What what is happening? What is going on? What I wrote in with his elbow is there are he had an injury that caused there to be problems with the nerve endings. So getting feeling back making every throw has been a struggle for him. And that's when he got out on the field before the game this past week, he couldn't make every throw they made the determination to go Gabbard. And as a result look, they still pulled out the win over Houston. Do you think is elbow is fine, but they're actually watching his throws now and going? No, he can't. He can't make these throat. So there's gotta be something wrong elbow early, but no, my elbows fine look look at these throws. I mean, I was all on Marcus mariota this off season, looking at his rushing ability, the new offense, everything, but even starting in preseason, he just hasn't been that great. So this is it hurts our expectations for Corey Davis. It hurts the ability for Joni Smith, the breakout if you are, you're not running. Your offense and building it around Blaine gabbert the way you do Marcus mariota. So do you have I mean, you mentioned several guys. He'd play over Dion. Lewis were not bullish about Derrick Henry, and then Corey Davis. Look, I'm I'm playing a lot of players over Corey Davis this week. He's a bench and both of my leagues because I have no competence and Corey, Dave is going up against Jalen Ramsey and company in Jackson varies. Not a a much bench everybody. There's not a single pass catcher that you can play, you should bench. I don't care who else you have find someone on waivers. I'm not playing a single receiving option at all from from Tennessee. Dare dare Kinley Dion Lewis. You might need to start them. It's not a great match up. It's not the worst. I prefer to play others. You might need to because they're running back in the depth is not there this season. So it's pretty simple, bencher titans if you can. And if it's a receiver you can. Because you could find someone on waivers that are better than this match Dion. Lewis is the only titan on playing this week on the Jacksonville side. Blake Bortles has averaged over over twenty fancy points per game at home in his career. He's at home against the the Tennessee titans this week after a four touchdown week last week, you gotta feel good about Bortles this week, you? Yeah, but how good I feel about, right. I I feel pretty confident about him. I believe that he will come through with a solid fantasy day. The biggest question to me is Leonard for net. What's going on with his health, the team, they play different. I don't. I don't know why they if it seems like when you they restrict Bortles far more when four net like it is well, but you just you've seen what happens when you unleash Bortles. Good things happen. Sometimes seeing you unleashing portals and they would prefer to have complete. Control, slow the game down, run out the clock, win with their unbelievable defense and run the ball. That's their preference. If I was their head coach and I'm all about throwing the ball efficiency passing, I would still choose that method because I think it gives me a higher probability to win with that defense then unleashing arrows. But I agree with you, the health of Leonard fournette is the difference in Bortles because it four net plays this week, then I don't think Bortles is a guy you want a piece of you can probably find a quarterback that's that's going to be higher. They're going to slow the game down and take the passing out of his hands. I tend to, I tend to think that's true. And you and you probably you probably got twelve guys, you know twelve to fifteen guys. You can start over Bortles with. More assurance of the game script. I don't know how Tennessee scores in this game do not. That's the real problem there where last week you had even even with Jacksonville out to a lead, you had the threat of Tom Brady coming back in that game, that threat is probably come on, and this defense could score against Blaine gabbert if he happens to be out there too, and all of a sudden you end up, you run a touchdown in and you get a defensive score, and then what is it over under ten passing attempts for Bortles rest of the game. Maybe that's the concern. So how do you feel about the Jacksonville, wide receivers of Keelan. Coal? Yeah. I mean, that's based on your options. I mean, in my in my dynasty league, I'm choosing to play Marvin Jones, Matt Breda, Corey Clement all over and coal like he's on my bench this week, not because I don't think you can start him like there's an opportunity there. And if you have to pick a player to to be that passing touchdown guy. I mean, Cole's got as good a chance as anybody. But. It's not going to be a ceiling game. It's going to be a floor game for axon. I agree. But again, if if for net does hold out another week, then I feel much more confident in. I mean, Bortles was my streamer. I think you can play him off of waivers, and that would help keeling coal. If for now is out of the game update from earlier, GIO is practicing now and we're heading into that Bengals Panthers matchup. So let's talk about the two, no Cincinnati. Bengals taking on the one in one Carolina Panthers in Carolina. Forty four point over under Panthers are three point favorites impressive week for Andy, Dalton last week. I don't think people expected that. No. No, no, no. If you did congratulations on being anti don's number one fan, Andy, Dalton, and Blake Bortles are very similar in respect to their perception, right? You get fantasy production from them from time to time, maybe more often than not. But, but it's always shocking. It's always you're always surprised, never expected, but what do you expect in this matchup look the Panthers. You know, they pulled out a win in week one. They lost last week to Atlanta. It's been a a wild ride there, but they did get DJ more involved last week with one big touchdown, and they talked about involving him more in the offense. How do we feel about this game? What are the big storylines? Geo Bernard obviously is going to get an opportunity here and you guys are all starting. Yeah, Bernard last year there were five games you have fifteen or more touches in those contests. He averaged over sixteen p p points a game, and I believe that he will get the bulk of the of the work. Yeah, he's Mark. Walton has been. Very disappointing for I was. There's a lot of redraft players who are listening to the show who don't even know who Mark Walton is because he is more of a dynasty name, you know who is, but he's been incredibly disappointing and just historically speaking, I believe they would go with geo. We've that that's why I believe GO will have vast opportunity. This game is because we've kind of seen what happens when someone goes down and they're fine writing GO for week or two, and he's always proven successful. What is worth Lewis did talk to Ross Tucker on Syria, six AM said that it will be Geel and Mark Walden. Yeah, shouldering the load. And we have not seen Walton in a regular season game yet. He has a rookie he's highly acclaimed and had a bad preseason. That's where we're at with Walton. Yeah, and certainly Geos not going to get one hundred percent. No, nobody does on any roster, not not Todd Gurley or or David Johnson Zeke, but I still think his opportunity meet makes him start. Obviously, you have to start Christian. McCaffrey and you have to stay in the flames with Cam Newton. He's on pace for his most. Rushing attempts of his career sat over one hundred yards both games. I mean, he's just been awesome and and and needed his offense of law one hundred total by the way. And his office of line has been so wrecked that it's kind of for fantasy, not in his certainly not good news for the Panthers if you're a Panthers fan, but for fantasy, it's making Christian McCaffrey become the clear cut number one target in the offense without Greg Olsen, and it's making Cam Newton run and run and run. So this is great news. You have to have those guys locked and loaded, but I'm not really digging funchess or DJ more. You don't know where you don't know even know who what about in you? Probably don't wanna start him this week, but are you considering picking up and holding onto Ian Thomas tight end for the Panthers? Seeing what? What goes on. I know he came through with with really nothing for fantasy to speak of, but he did have two targets inside the red zone. Last week he played on ninety four percent of Carolina's snaps and the Bengals have been torched so far on this season at. Tight end. So I pass. I get the thing that I agree with Andy passed. I'm not. I'm not playing that game. He's one of those show me first. Then I'll sign you not the other way around now with all the other opportunities to get guys on the waiver wire. McCaffrey had fourteen receptions last week, but he wasn't a single digit Kerry count, which is kind of unfortunate. But it's nice that he's game script proof. Obviously, with the reception totals, you know, you're starting AJ green. What do you think about Tyler Boyd? He had a very impressive game last week. He looked like I don't know the Quincy noon while to Asia greens, Robbie Anderson, you know, he was the target leader on the team possession type of player. I thought Andy Dalton showed a lot of confidence entirely Boyd in that game. Yeah, he, he's the number two receiver. And if you're in a full p p r I think he is a flex worthy option. Eighteen fantasy points six for ninety one and a touchdown. John Ross has not emerged knows the other way saying is other wave saying, no, I'm. I'm interested to have buoyed on my bench, but I don't know that I'm ready to throw him in yet. I mean the, yeah, the Panthers. They've been stout so far against fantasy wide receivers. So I think there's there's other options that I'm looking at. One more match up than starts the week and we'll get the rest of the match ups in tomorrow's shell. The forty Niners of one and one take on the chiefs at Arrowhead. The chiefs are six and a half point favorites fifty six point over under. I tried to find a way I tried to find a way to make this. My almost upset. It's impossible and I could. So I'm not the chiefs. We're gonna win. They, I'll look up this week. You guys start talking about the match up. There was a tweet by Evan Silva yesterday, talking about the fact that the chiefs still have meat on the bone and speaking of the offense, and I'll find that tweet, but this is going to be another opportunity for you to roll out Patrick Mahomes with great confidence. What are the big story lines from this game? I mean you are you starting Sammy Watkins after the impressive performance last week? Yes. Yeah. In a game with a fifty six point over under where Jimmy Garoppolo should be able to come down on that and score on the chiefs. This is this is the type of game where you anybody that could be involved. You want them in your lineup here. Here's what Evan silver tweeted yesterday. Mahomes missed Watkins on a long TD bomb and week to miss Kelsey for a twenty seven yard touchdown on a wheel route. Cream hunt has one target through two games. Yeah, Pat Mahomes has three starts so far. They're all on the road. Now he's at home and Kansas City has yet to play from behind in a game at all. That's when you talk about a baseline for an offense right now. Wow. See, this is the one thing I will say. We we Andy Reid when you've got a coach coached this long. You can get an idea. For his how he utilizes his personnel and his players in certain ways. One thing we've seen is that tyreek hill surprisingly has more success on the road than at home. Part of that is not, oh, he's just he's great in front of all their crowds. It's it's game design, right? There's four more rushing attempts per game so far in Kareem hunts early career at home than on the road. So I think this is a great Kareem hunt game. I mean, nobody's benching tyreek hill, but I don't expect him to have one of his insane blow up games partly because this is the first freaking week of the season than in one of my main leagues. I'm not playing against the Pat Mahomes tire kill staff that you know of. Yeah, I know you guys, I'm gonna make away get somebody on your opposition quick. But look, the chiefs defense is at throw Shas metric wise this year. Thirty. Second against quarterbacks twenty-ninth is running backs twenty-ninth against wide receivers, thirty. First against I'd ends. Now they're scorching people. But I like forty Niners in this game. I like them a lot. We're gonna talk about them in a minute who so Markey's Goodwin returned to limited action on Wednesday. Yeah. How do you feel about him? There's so much excitement before the year. We haven't got to see him. He he goose you in week one because of the injury. Now, you know if he plays, I will. I will put him right at one hundred percent. I'm fine starting Goodwin. I'm one hundred percent find starting Garzon kill- it'll it'll Salil the must start until otherwise noted if Goodwin can't play, what's your Dante? Pettis level of excitement, Jason. I'm still there. I mean, I realized he had a down week last week, but in this type of matchup against a really bad defense with a high over under you. You know, you're always playing probabilities. And so that doesn't mean you're always going to hit. So last week's advice was you know to that he was if Goodwin was out that he was startled asset, I don't think was. Inherently wrong just because it did not come to fruition. I mean, this is this is the NFL if if people could predict everything that's going to happen, it's very difficult with Pettus because you only two targets last week, but he played on more snaps than any other wide receiver on them forty, nine or often. So I think it was a bit of just the wrong, you know, perfect. Storm of of suck. Yeah, for pass. But there is opportunity this week. I think he's a dart throw play though. Right? Like I'd much rather play kindergarten day than Dante Pettis even with Goodwin out. Yeah, I can agree with that. Oh, wait even with Goodwin out. Yeah, yeah, I'd rather play. I'd rather play the golladay side. Okay. You guys got you Golic days a must start Kenny. G. is it's so skinny in through this? No, no, he's not. Classically trained. Certainly not smooth. I've heard him. He's on the record like. Cross bond. That's bettas. Yeah. All right. Starts there though. Mike through on hot crossbones. Yes, for beta. That's right. And that's where I ended the end of my musical training, my goodness, we talked about on the spitball or spot guests in inanimate object. You could get rid of from the world. Oh, I did not think about recorded recorder should have been recorded. I mean, Mike, you said you'd get rid of corners, which I still can't quite comprehend. Mentally. I stand by that's Neil degrasse Tyson type situation that have included Cornerbacks then who are they gone? No, they're adamant. Moving along. Starts of the week. All right. My start of the week at the quarterback position is Shawn Watson, I want to give you that little Pat on the butt to start to Shawn Watson this week. A lot of people worried great opportunity against New York. Does Shawn Watson is Chuck in it. He's in deep, he's gained seventy three point, three percent of his total passing yards through the air. That is the highest of all qualified quarterbacks in the league. I'm calling him launch pad. I mean, he's just he's launching it any when you have will fuller and deandre Hopkins as part of that deep threat offense. I love it and he's still third in the league in rushing yardage at the quarterback position, we put up a great fantasy game last week. I'll be at it, took them a while. I think this is a, you know, just started just starting your fine. My start of the week this week is Matt Ryan. I, you know, he's one of those guys that you're not always sure whether you want to start him and you're not. This is not chasing last week's points. He had a phenomenal game last week, but this is more about the matchup than I think the New Orleans Saints and the falcons either leave that they will take the over. I think they're going to score a lot of points back. Forth in this game, and it's the weapons when you're at home and you have Calvin really new first round pick you have Mohammed sununu. You've got, you know Coleman who could catch the ball. And of course Julio who usually torches the saints. I is saying, I think you're going to be making a mistake. If you, if you're, you know, most of the people with Matt Ryan, they drafted him lane. So they are usually debating between two later round quarterbacks and I'm taking Matt Ryan in that situation. I'm taking the handsome one Jimmy, g. Jimmy Garoppolo. The matchup is fantastic. The San Francisco defense has given up twenty seven points twenty four points, and now they're playing Kansas City with an absolutely obscene over under and believe that you meet grant or Jimmy Garoppolo can keep pace against this Kansas City Chiefs defense, oh, I love him this week. I love him. Well, my tight end started the week, we'll go into the tight ends. Now it's George Kibble against Kansas City for all the reason all the reasons that might just brought up and look Jesse. James is the number one tight end fantasy football. He just dropped one hundred thirty eight and a touchdown. Who did he do it against Kansas City? He's been targeted thirteen times this season. That's six most among tight ends. I don't read much into last week's performance in terms of any type of lack of excitement for George Kittle. They're going to need to throw the ball and Kittles gonna do work this week. I'm sticking with the rules around here. Rule eighty six. Jordan Reed has been on the field. He's been healthy and you must start him. There are very few tight ends with the ability that he has. There are very few tied in so far on this season that have you know that have even proven that they can be relied on at all, but he is Alex Smith's number one time. Target. It's been never when he's playing at home against Green Bay. I think you know there's guys there are three players that I'm willing to start over Jordan. Read this this week, and that's the three obvious gronk Erz Kelsey. Wow. So you got read up number four? Sure. Do you play him over Jimmy? I would play him over Jimmy game game who. Wow. Spicy. All right. I'm taking a risk here at the tight end position. I'm staying in the flames Slough with the outlaw, Jesse James. This is this. This has some absolute risk to it, but Andy brought it up. He is the number one tight end right now and fantasy in that's with 'cause now the the Rian three for sixty in week one against Cleveland, five for one thirty eight and a touchdown against Kansas City. I'm not expecting five for one thirty eight and a touchdown ever again in his career, but I'm buying into the matchup is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers there. The beard is magical. The beard dust is just dropping points. And I'm talking, of course about Ryan Fitzpatrick and I've strongly believed that Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to continue his performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense end. So facto bits Burke Steelers are going to have to have to put up points. And I think that Jesse James is a part of the attack right now. It's. It's interesting because I feel like maybe I've discovered something about you. Mike was that you love platoon tight ends. You love them when their share. I mean, the my biggest concern with Jesse, James moving forward is just that Vance McDonald ran the same amount of snappy was, but I'm trying to give you could end up with your Vance around your ankles here. I, it's certainly possible what I'm trying to help people find a tight end from the waiver wire that they can pick up and play. He's still on the waiver wire gnarly. So the number one tied in? Yeah. Yeah. Why number two's? Probably Disney. Right, Vic. So Jesse James and we'll dizzy, I believe. So. All right. Let's jump into the wide receiver position I'm going with. Brandin cooks, must start started the week, blow it up. Top guy. Brandin cooks, fourth, most receiving yards in the NFL right now, just trailing, Sean Jackson, Michael, Thomas and tyreek hill. Brandin cooks is everything that Sean McVeigh offense of genius in mastermind. As wanted from that position, it's almost an indictment on Sammy Watkins to see how involved Brandin cooks has been so soon in that offense and look, I think, is going to be wheels up. Let's go Brandin cooks start and I'm sticking with what got me here. The guy that I love. And yes, he's obvious because he's like the seventh wide receiver so far on the season. But if I if I had him last year, I can't delete his name out of my starts the week. Juju Smith Schuster grandfather. Damn grandfathered in. He's my. Start of the year next week, tired of the be my start of the week, and then I'll have to give you another wide receiver because he's just never getting out of this spot. Let goodness. Great. He's on pace for one thousand nine hundred twenty yards in one hundred forty, four receptions. This is it makes me wonder what the pace of cooks dejected Thomas and hill is we juju wasn't one of those four. No, I know it's it's one of those things where like you said, Mike, and what I brought up at the very beginning of the show fits magic appears to be legit right now. The Steelers defense is not great so far this season, like we saw the second half of last season they're going to have to put points up and yes, the squeaky wheel. Antonio Brown will have a better game, but you g you to stay in the fire that juju has created a Mike. I'm will fuller. I love to Shawn Watson this week, so I want to. I'm going to grab an arm. I'm going to grab a leg. I'm just going to get an extension. Yup. From Shawn, Watson and this week I'm going to go will fuller. He was my rising star. It's time to accept the facts that will fuller who was a first round pick. The, he still has the taste the taste of his first year where he was really letting people down. And because of that, we, we've not accepted that willful or is just a good wide receiver and is a perfect match eight for one thirteen for and STAN last week. Very involved has en- games with Shawn Watson off the time ahead. I think it was his lowest finish was wide receiver seventeen. He gets it on the big play as a huge threat. And if you're going to get target volume on top of being a big play threat, I love willful of this week and I love and moving forward throughout the season. He's addicted to the end zone. Yes, that's what he is. Now you do need to monitor. He is. I think, technically marked as a limited participant with EM string injury. That's just always banged up easing into this week. I'm gonna go with my running back star of the week now, Matt Brita against Kansas City. I'm going to give him credit that leading rusher in the NFL, but look to me, this is a snap count, percentage decision, Kansas City is lighting. The world on fire. I believe that Jimmy, handsome and company are on the way back in this game. They're going to be fighting with garbage time availability. You've seen what happens at the end of these games to if they're down. You know, these running backs are getting targets, and Matt breed has been a really good player so far this year, albeit limited total carries. But I think this is a good game to star Matt breed. I want to give people confidence to put them in their flex. Put him in that position where you look, you got him late. You got him off the waiver wire, you're making a decision between him and Keelan or him, and you know, Marvin Jones or something like that. I would play Breda. Yeah, and my start of the week is Lamar Miller. I want to give based on that THEO coming out of your mouth. It felt great because welcome back old friend. S I missed you? Lamar. Dr. Look. I looked at a lot of trades this last week trades that have gone down trade requests of the. I've been offered this or I'm thinking about offering that in the one thing that has really stood out to me is how nobody wants Lamar Miller. The people that have them are fine to get rid of him. He would be another trade target because he's been fine. He's on the field. He's on the field, seventy five percent of snaps, which is fantastic for a running back. He's the clear lead guide there. I think this offense is gonna start clicking, especially now with will fuller back the New York giant. He's Miller fine. The the, the New York tie-ins are not a good defense, and Miller is going to be okay. So I'm saying, you know, start him, he's probably been on your bench or near it or been in consideration of being benched. He's a top fifteen running back this week against the giants. Mike, my runningback start. I'm calling the shot of bind into the news that j.j I is. Going to miss this weekend. So Corey Clement against the Indianapolis Colts. Oh, the matchup is delightful. Core climent is a more than capable running back. You get the return of Carson Wentz a huge upgrade for that offense as a whole. I'm very excited to pay to play Clement this week. All right. Those were the start of the week is the start of the week, and it's time for the main event. Jason Moore's ironclad locked and loaded one hundred percent guaranteed boom, boom, kicker of the week. Uh, sure. In a new year, like you were a Carson Daley. With the Vikings, newest player, kicker band, Bailey. On MTV go an NBC Carson Daly's mainstream. Now on the New Year's. Yeah, that he's he goes into like a vampire, right? I just goes away for three hundred sixty four days. Have you thought about releasing just like vampires? Do they go away for thirty days? Why? Not like a that hibernates vampires just disappear in the day as yes. It's true. Sorry, had to Karrar on a daily or knowledge borough sim self underground until the next new years. Is that what we're getting? But Dan Bailey's, the pick here is I would not use Carson Daley as a kicker, but look, Dan Bailey. His groin is healed. He's literally the second most accurate kicker in NFL history. He was cut from the Cowboys for money reasons, and he's signed was Brooks is shaking his head, so sad because he's a Cowboys fan and you got rid of Dan Bailey who I'm pretty sure Cowboys could it used him the first two weeks and the Vikings have a great offense.

We talked about the impact of all the relevant people. So please check that out. But if you missed it will over it today. We'll do a quick recap of our thoughts on the players who were moved. But we're not gonna spend as much time today on the trades. We are going to get a little bit of a visit from the regulators later on in the show. We got some good regulate new today. We're talking Halloween candy Halloween movies and a lot of fantasy football. And. Tweets and your emails fantasy football at CBS dot com. Spoken earlier, I was really negative last couple of weeks about Halloween, but I've never celebrated Halloween. So if that's that may be better. Yes. I say weird. Okay. Like just. I think a lot of people say Halloween happy Halloween. Nobody says happy Halloween. That's stupid. There are a few things on this show. That are said a little weird. I'm sure I say them say plenty of things that were okay. What it always makes me laugh? The way days says Bengals Bengals. You ever knows that? Oh, yeah. Okay. The way you say ruin ruined. Yeah. Yeah. He has won the Jaguars. All right. You also say tournament really really weird. I do say toward a bit weird that is naked thanks guys Bilo on whom I have done nothing. Nice. We're I don't think. So I just thought one hundred miles an hour. Yeah. So you say Pete Prisco weird. Okay. So we buy low on. Oh, we're in violence. I I thought we were doing so highs. I do you have any cell highs that you'd like to throw. I I was very excited to talk about myself. Hi, I find all it's Halloween with crazy. Yeah. Yeah. I am very scared to Rico in moving forward and not necessarily the total points. He's going to score over the rest of the season. I think they will probably be NPR top twentyish. But on a week to week basis, especially we saw last week completely masked by the fact that the just forgot to cover him for a play and he had a seventy yard pass. Touchdown. He had five carries one catch only three targets last week. And really he's got that one game against Tampa Bay with twenty touches and he had fourteen against the patriots. The rest of the games you look eight five eight twelve six. I would be trying to sell high onto Rico. Okay. And at buffalo this week. Then Detroit so schedule's not so bad off the bat, but whatever. That's not the point. Is that is is buffalo this week? A good matchup for two recon or a good matchup for Jordan Howard. Yeah. I don't know both. Yeah. I mean, I think. Cohen is a poor man's version of James. He's not going to get as many touches. And probably not gonna be asked accessible. But I mean the rate that he's producing is not going to be sustainable anyway. So you just have to understand is gonna be on the way. But I mean, you're not benching against ball flow was sixteen on a by Jamie of sell high. I would have to be getting something great return. But the golden Tate trade to Philadelphia makes me slightly nervous about soccer. It's really. Yeah. I mean those guys operating the same part of field. So not that you're giving him away by any stretch. But if you can get you have to get to players in return one has got to be one of the mid level titans. So George Kellogg howardair cook the case may be whoever. However, you rate those guys and then another starter in return. So it's got to be two for one. But I think they're gonna see a slight slight downturn in production for now. What if one of those tight ends, you gotta return rob gronkowski, go. I mean. Yes. Well, yeah. I look I think he's the the honorary Bilo. We can transition to the by lows now. And I think he hopefully goes the Jordy Nelson two thousand sixteen Ben Rothlisberger two thousand seventeen route. Where it just doesn't really make any sense that he's not producing really not getting. On of targets been dealing with an ankle injury dealing with a back injury. They've got Green Bay this week. And they've been pretty good against tight ends. Then they've got Tennessee, which is number one against tight ends. But they've only faced one good tight end, and that was urged towards them and then a buy so I think we'll all agree right to to Bilo on rob gronkowski. And not only that this is an amazing time to do it. I mean, the problem is is that like I have gronk in one league. I'm six two. I'm not trading. You're not. But you think he's by low candidate some people might not know. But what I'm saying is like you have to be getting a starting tight end return. Well, sure, I mean, you can package OJ Howard and something for rob gronkowski. That's something. But it'd be something good. Trades. We see all the time. You know what I'm talking about? And I'll go back. This is not really a sell high but back to because I think when we talked about golden yesterday, your initial impression was completely different than ours was, and I do think there may be some people that look at that trade and say we'll golden Tate just went from Matthew. Stafford Carson Wentz. I wouldn't I wouldn't hesitate try to sell high on gold. Yeah. You're right. If people are. Yeah. Because that I think what I put it this way if golden Tate started the season with the eagles had a training camp with the eagles even with al-shara and Erz on the field. I probably be pretty excited about him. And that's what I was sort of reflecting my enthusiasm. But there's such an unknown with a guy going to duty midseason learning the playbook and whatnot. So I feel I feel you dog. Oh, he was your Bilo. Sorry. It was gold. It was going to take. No, go. Hi, have you talked. I'm I'm really giving you a hard time poetry's for. Yeah. Who's your? It's not low. You've martha. I'm gonna go with Nick Chubb. Is revival frustrated by his at that game and said, well, he's just Carlos hard. I think he's better than Carlos side. And I expect he will have a majority of his games better than what he gave last week, which was still what nine points and PR seven points and standard that's the floor. And I expect a monster game against the chiefs this week next to match ups are great chiefs and the falcons Nick Chubb as Bilo throughout a few more names same team Jarvis Landry. Jarvis Landry has the second. Most targets in the NFL. He's not doing much with them. But you gotta love the targets Adam feel and has one more target than Jarvis Landry. And yet feeling is the number one wide receiver and fantasy Landry's twenty and non PR eighteenth in PR. So another appearance on this list as Bilo agree or disagree on Landry. Agree. I agree. I think. Expectations may have been a little high for him. But he will be better than he has been and these next two or definitely not said not like so confident, but I'll throw them out there. Dion Lewis had a good game in week seven thirteen carries for ninety one yards. Six catches for sixty four yards. Not the first time. He's had a good game. And he has strung together. But maybe they come out of there by and realize they need to get Dion Lewis more involved. Do you think he's a Bilo? Yeah. Yeah. I think so and on that same team. I'm not going to back off my Corey Davis Love for at least the next ten days. So what would you be willing? Where would you place Dion Lewis, and you're running back rankings to give people an idea rest of season. Yeah, PR. Yeah. I don't think anybody's by him in standard twenty two say twenty five to thirty. Says not that great, but vilo, but no. But I mean, it's it's there's there's upside there if he stays healthy. Yeah. And last one that I have is Crowell. Isaiah Crowell who is averaging five point one yards per carry this season. But in six of eight games three point one yards per carrier less. So he's had two huge games. One against Denver one against a trip to dust on gaming. It's about two huge games. Terms of yards per carry. Yeah. At Miami than buffalo than a by so too good match-ups coming up for Crowell. And I just think look he faced the Vikings in the bears in his last two games. Good defenses. No Powell, I'm not saying by low in disguise gonna win you a championship. But maybe he can help you get through some by weeks. Maybe can get always very good start this week. Yeah. Right. I mean, crawls better than what we've seen the last couple of weeks. All right. So it's a mild Bi-Lo. And I think Josh Gordon. The Packers secondary may just be ripe for Josh Gordon this week. Hopefully, I mean, it's it's been a little frustrating with him. You know targets not been there. And last week the whole was he late was not late is gonna play not gonna play. I've on for you. All right. Keenan allen. Yeah. His numbers the second half of last season. We're just amazing and very similar not a great first-half. So in his last seven games he had five one hundred yard outings and. Four touchdowns five. Glad we gave up t y Hilton for him. Yeah. A good trade. Probably was oh what what has that? We've got to tell people. What we did. We do. I think we did last night. I haven't looked at any of my waiver claves. But let's take a look this is going to be this is an interesting. This is an interesting I think fantasy topic. 'cause I know I know brew thumb carrying three quarterbacks especially in ten team league. Like we fought for a good three weeks about carrying two quarterback. Look, it's a terrible idea on paper. You don't wanna carry three quarterbacks. It doesn't make sense. However when you're two quarterbacks are Andrew luck in Carson Wentz. They both have to be on a by. They might be top-five quarterbacks fantasy. Would you keep them really just play defense? It make sure nobody beats you later in the season because they picked up Andrew luck. Carson wentz. That's kind of what we were what we were dealing with yesterday. He's so you added a third guy. We did not. I don't I don't think Adam process our waiver claim. So he may have done something without my consent. I told you everything, but I was I was looking at it last night. And Adam says, okay, we'll drop Vance McDonald for third quarterback and keep luck and wins. And I'm like, no, no, we can't do that. So Adam ask me, which one do you like better, wince or luck? And looking at the schedule with wins having golden Tate now I actually liked Carson Wentz better than Andrew luck recipes. Do we drop? Andrew luck. We drop. Vance McDonald that we own three quarterbacks. It was the third one. We have Wentz luck. And now we have Russell Wilson for this week. Why did we drop man's McDonald's because we have Greg Olsen? We don't eat too tight. Ends fans McDonald is much less likely to beat us going forward than Andrew luck. Or Carson Wentz would be I think it would be better. If you guys are carrying three quarterbacks in two tight ends in its team league. This is amazing. I it's unique circumstance, but I don't think you should drop. Great players, even if you have a surplus of them I had a situation where which was just relieved for me where I was carrying three quarterbacks as well on the league's very deep benches. But I had luck Matt Ryan and Jameis and now I no longer have a quarterback situation. Right. But you don't want somebody to pick up James and we picked up Russell Wilson over Ryan Fitzpatrick put in a bid for Fitzpatrick, we lost the bid. So you'd prioritize Fitzpatrick over Wilson. Yes. Okay. For you for you, by friend. Let's go through yesterday's trades. And just spend a few minutes on this. So to marry his Thomas goes to Houston, golden Tate to Philadelphia time Montgomery. Baltimore. I just want to stress to everybody. We did really good breakdown of it on yesterday's bonus episode, please listen to that. Let's start with time gummy. And knocked this one out how much of a boost for Aaron Jones and origin mall Williams. I mean, it's. It's a boost for those guys. Just because there's additional touches he was averaging just under seven touches per game in terms of Montgomery. So the hope would be is that mostly Jones. But you know, if you just look at what skill set is Jones in exactly the most proficient pass cash, or at least so far early NFL career, not that Williams has been great in that regard. But better than Jones and use more than Jones that would be my fear as Jones owners that Williams gets the the majority of those touches because he is a very good pass blocker. But hopefully, this is the sign of things to come for for Jones. You know, that you heard the talk coming off by what you said it out last week that you thought this could be a breakout game for Jones in in a lot ways. It was. I just hope that you know, he got to catch no yards on those two catches. If you get after catches a game in twelve fifteen carries a game. He's going to be a special player. Yeah. It was a little bit of a lucky break outta me long run. But he got twelve carries a season high for Aaron Jones, and if he's at fourteen or fifteen a week, that'd be awesome. Does it hurt? Alex Collins, potentially. We don't know what the plan Baltimore's plan for time Gumri is yet. But there's reasons to be concerned about Collins. And there's there's definitely reasons to be worried that they're just going to not get the ball to buckle on anymore. At all going to ask you to rank five wide receivers everybody. Listen, listen, carefully ranked Damaris Thomas, Cortlandt Sutton, golden Tate. Kenny golladay in Marvin Jones rest of season or this week recipes. Gordon jones. Format. Yeah. It does matter. Let's do PR. The go-to Jones Tate Thomas. Go golladay Jones, Tate, Sutton Thomas. All five of these guys. Don't need to be rostered. Right. Oh, yours sons. Now sixty four percent own. He was like thirty three yesterday or something. Thomas value up down to the same slight bump. Slight bump. Okay. And I'm sorry. He better than Thomas, Jamie. No. I do. Oh, I flipped that. Okay. Jamie. Like sun better than Thomas heat. It's close though, it's closer both you right? And you think golden Tate loses here. Slightly. It's like the bump that Thomas gets is the downgrade that tickets. Yeah, he was advocating I think nine point nine targets per game. I don't I don't see him matching that in Philadelphia. If he does then it's bad for Jeffrey innards, right? All right. So it was fun. It was good times. A winner in Stafford's loser. Yeah. Ha ha Clinton Dix traded to the Redskins mix defense even better as they get ready for Atlanta and Dante Fowler to the Rams. So gosh, the Rams. Got pretty collective group. There. Was going to say, oh Marvin Jones. Right. So how good do you think Marvin Jones is now? I don't think he's that far from. Sutton and Thomas to be honest. But you know, the being granted the opportunity for more targets as attractive thing. I hope he does enough with that. He's just not touchdown dependent. He looked. He looked great. You know, the they've tried a lot, you know, the if you buy into air targets, he you know, he was very good in that regard. He at a lot of touchdown opportunities. I just didn't connect on. So now that has gone is not like his roles changing. They're gonna use a Brennan towel in TJ Jones in the slot. Theoretic potentially. Yeah. I'm just looking at his games where he got at least eight targets which would be pretty close to my expectation moving forward over the last year at six fifty four six for ninety six and a touchdown six for one twenty eight seven for one. Oh, seven for for ninety seven for one seventeen to touchdown, then it's very encouraging. Yeah. That's pretty nice. And he does lead the team in red zone targets right now Marvin Jones he is ten of those his six targets inside the ten yard line. Any sleepers? You mentioned. You mentioned THEO Riddick but other guys that could step up and just be sleepers. Like, Brandon Powell, maybe I guess TJ Jones. Okay. Nobody to exciting right? Nobody exciting at all. No. Well, then I'll tell you. What is exciting? The Seekie cap is exciting because getting tickets that can be really complicated online, really annoying. And you're not getting great prices. You're getting ripped off a lot seeks gonna help you out seeks gonna get your great prices and save you a ton of time by searching multiple ticket sites in grading every ticket based on value, and seek helps you immediately identify the best seats that fit your budget.

The giants backup quarterback was arrested as they enter into their by week. I don't know. Maybe that keeps you lie manning as the starter for a little longer. Do anything not play off into blind jas? Ben Rothlisberger broke his finger on his left hand. He'll be fine. He'll play this week. Nathan Peterman will start for the bills this week bears. The number one they are they were before this. So buffalo sign their new quarterbacks or L prior. Yeah. It would be fun. They signed Terrell Pryor. And wouldn't it wouldn't be completely out of the question for him to get a little action quarterback bears? Offensive guard long is out six to eight weeks. Seattle released Brandon Marshall AJ green has a toe injury. But he should be fine. Rehim Moster has an ankle injury. Maybe that's why we got must. Maybe that's why was way must heard those turn. No. He got hurt during the game. Well that sucked on one of his touches. But if you go by the forty Niners track record an injury means twenty carries. That's true. We're supposed to preview that game today. By the way, we have to get to that the Thursday night game CJ Beathard uncertain for this game. I would actually like to hear more about your three quarterbacks. I haven't heard that story enough. Just let everybody know we had some technical issues. And I heard that story on repeat it's in my head now forever. So so he asked me which one better and look good. We'll pick up from the where you liked to quarterback. Dammit. He can you start? He's picking. So he asked me which one I liked. Schedule course winds already having having golden Tate. Now, I actually prefer Carson with luck. Interlock? I gotta do that again. Sorry. So yeah. Do you expect the folly players? Melvin gordon. Can we go back real quick CJ bathroom thing could be big? He can't hold the football right now could be big for who for negative on the raiders and forty Niners passing him because I think Jon Gruden if he thought that he could run the ball thirty five times and just win a game. He's going to do that. I will downgrade their car a little bit. If Beth is out, I think Jon Gruden wants to kind of make a statement there. Carjon. Nope. So do you expect Melvin Gordon? Yes. You did expect Sony Michelle. I don't not as of now Royce Freeman not as no Jamison Crowder. No, Allan Robinson. No, KiKi Cutie. No talk a little Halloween. Okay. People. I think that people are getting a little carried away with peanut butter Eminem's. Everybody's talking about peanut butter Eminem like they're the best Eminem. They aren't there. Basically reese's pieces, they taste almost exactly the same. There's letter or peanut imminent. Peanut butter. Peanut EMS are great. But peanut butter also great, but everybody's acting like, Aw, I've never had anything. They're they're reese's pieces. They're the same thing. Okay. I have a Halloween movie. I wanna recommend recommended on Twitter. And you know, this is a good move because people actually agreed with me, and nobody ever agrees with Twitter takes movies called sinister it was on last night. And it gets sent shivers down my spine. It is freaking awesome. Please watch. Sinister. One of the best movies I've ever seen. Congratulations on your new deal. Candy corn? According to Mark harden on Twitter is the trash juice that collects at the bottom of the trash Bank. How do you guys feel about candy court? I never been fan. I don't like it. But if there's a bowl sitting there, I'll probably have a couple of cases. Yeah. I asked people on Twitter. Candy corn is a good or bad bad one with sixty nine percent of the vote. I do I it's called candy corn. No, I don't understand the day. If you stack them all together, it looks like a year of corn. Really? That's cool. I also asked which holiday is better. How how the wean or July fourth? He is not a holiday, but it's is not a holiday. Oh. This holiday July. Fourth isn't a holiday. Did. You just say that independence day is a holiday. I hate you. Anyway, people on Twitter said July fourth overwhelmingly, two thirds of the vote at sector, and then I asked if you were trick or treating and receiving candy from strangers which Halloween candy would piss you off the most. This is what's wrong with Halloween and with America do not teach your kid that if he's walking around the neighborhood getting free handouts from people he doesn't even know that he has the right to be pissed off because they didn't give him the candidate wants. Well, here's what even give candy that you have an obligation. Yes. You do have an obligation obligation not to give crappy candy like that hick. Lewis your titled your Brett here that you're so what happened to you on Halloween that made you this way with did happen. Like, did you want to dress up like a superhero and mom and dad were just like, no, you're going? I trust up just a few days ago went to a Halloween party as what Forrest Gump. Oh, that's great. You got to send you gotta put pictures of that up, man. My wife was at I was forced to. All right. So here's what the people said the crappiest candy, the ones that would piss you off the most jelly beans. Whatever chips chips will be bad those peanut butter taffy things that come in the orange and black rappers. Absolutely the worst. I actually got a lot of that. Somebody said an apple one lady always gives an apple. I'd be okay with that. Now in later, black liquorice pennies, people give change apparently. That's terrible. Here's one that. I would actually enjoy yogurt covered raisins. Where are you guys on yogurt rates? I love those. They're great. I usually I usually when I take my kids say, oh, you guys want this. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hey dyke. We have the raise what rains. Did they really like yogurt or raisins? So I don't imagine I would like those, but I've not had them try almond joys. Mounds those kit. Coconut coconut sucks. You're terrible. Candy this. Okay. Here's the here's the worst candy butterfinger butterfinger, you all know, I hate butterfinger. It's just dreadful. Okay. Every now and then, but it's not a good. It's not on the on the top of the list released gently tell me if you guys like any of these candies that people said were terrible walkers three musketeers, peppermint, Patty's three musketeers candy that much. But all those are fine Tootsie rolls. I'm not real guy. Fine toothbrushes. People out brushes. Get really mad. If you get those. What the hell is this? You only have one right? Correct toothbrush. Yes. No. I have to. Well, then how come when you're closed got lost? Or so on the plane. You said just I just went to the dentist. I got a new one last week. Oh, you waited for the free one. Actually. No, that's not true. I bought one that had to give it to my wife. So. Yeah. No. I have decent dental hygiene. All right with you. With one round of the fantasy regulators. Then Oakland, San Francisco them, we're answering a bunch of your tweets and talking about fantasy football players. That's what we're here to do. So let's do it. Fantasy regulators from rich. This is an incident that happened three years ago. Some off air. I'm Michael McDonald? Everybody. It's like rolling people. But with like McDonald? Yeah. That's when you say you had a bag of him this morning. Did you know pack to this is an incident that happened three years ago in a league? But I'd still like to hear your opinion on it. It was the final week of the regular season and two teams were fighting for the final playoff spot. One team had a significantly better roster than the other but ran into bad luck all year by playing against a lot of points. The team with the better Auster was one game back of the weaker team and own the tiebreaker over them. In other words, the better roster team would make the playoffs if they won and the weaker team lost. Now, the better Ostra team was playing the worst team in the league. And almost certainly win. The weaker roster team was playing the best team in the league and had a high chance of losing. But with with the number one seat in the playoffs wrapped up the best team in the league decided to sit his entire team on the bench and effectively give the weaker roster team the win knocking the better Auster team out of the playoffs. The owner said it was strategy to make his better for winning the championship which ultimately did as you can guess this did not go over well with the owner of the better roster team who got knocked out of the playoffs. So. Is that good strategy or a poor integrity move. Yes. Both. What would you do? Well, was the Commissioner one of the fourteen involved in the store? I guess the question because I understand Commissioner. Put it putting his thumb lineal here. But I I I would probably mock guy. I don't think I'd kick him out of the league. We got this a lot, you know. And venture entire team is one thing. What if you just benched your best player or something like that? Do you have the right to determine your own playoff fate, basically? So I guess the question I have is when you say, you're benching your entire team that means you're just taking zero 'cause you're putting in the lineup in or you're swapping out players there on by not playing or poor players. Let's say it's swapping in poor players that you know, you're gonna lose. Does it matter will? Yeah. Because it's roster management. Like, if you're if you're just like setting illegal lineup, which we can do in mostly plan, then you zero sure legal lineup is a little bit different. But if you're let's say, you're benching Melvin Gordon for Frank gore or something like that. But you're doing that with six players. It is a very low integrity moves that has also great strategy. So you'd allow it. I guess the question would be is the guy who got knocked out of the playoffs. Check to see that. If the guy had played all of his players. He still would have won. I know I know I don't wanna get into that specific. I think the general question is is that okay? Because I think there's an argument both ways I think this is a tricky one. I mean, look, you know, the thing about fantasy football is the idea is to run the team in mirror sort of what the NFL does. Right, right. And we know that the NFL when they get to sixteen seventeen they sit there guys. I need an answer. We're kind of tip time. I think it's there's nothing. You do. It's okay. You let it stand. It's not. It's not cool. But it's it's just there's nothing that anybody can if you're not going to get me to say, this is okay. But there I would not kick them out of the league. And that's big for me. Okay. Well, it's been regulated. Just want people to know that. This was Michael McDonald song before it was regulators. Let's go to Oakland. San Francisco stat of the game. Are you know that wide receivers with eight or more targets against the Niners? Do well. I've said that like ten times last week how about wide receivers with six or more targets against San Francisco. Ten of thirteen wide receivers with six or more targets against the Niners. Scored double digit fantasy points, non PR. So Jordy Nelson Seth Roberts. Anyone anyone people start? Jalen Rashard injured. Why they're the only players more targets Nelson. Got in has eight targets this season. Yeah. Games last week, not so much. Jordy Nelson had four targets one catch fourteen yards. But he played the most. Yeah. So this game is not like nobody wants to watch it. I get it. But there's actually a lot of fantasy potential here. We don't have good defenses. It would suck if Beth or doesn't play. But why don't we start with the with the raiders and? Are there? A lot of starts on the raiders. I think you're starting boats running backs I will bump Doug Martin up. A little better is out and dropped. Jalen Rashard down a little if better resort is a little bit risky because a lot of his work is coming teams down two scores. I'm not sure that they're gonna be down to all in this game. I've probably starting Jordy Nelson. I'm definitely starting Jericho agree. Let's talk about their car you'd go with its Patrick over car. We know that from yesterday. Would you go with Russell Wilson? Derek Carr Wilson. I Wilson one spot higher. Yes. Ben rothlisberger. At baltimore. Derek Carr right now car hire I've been here. Okay. Car is about fifteenth for everybody fourteenth day fifteen for Jamie sixteenth, four heath. So he's an okay start and. You prefer Martin to Rashard. What what did you say in PR to format? Martin and non PR Rashard is much higher than Peter. Yes. I agree. I I do think we're short a little bit risky. All right. Would you start Aaron Jones or one of these guys? Jones. I'd start Jones over both in non PR start Rashard over Jones, Peter I wanted to bring up one thing about Jalen Rashard. He's actually only the number thirty two running back and PR. Per game or for the season for those east by. For the season. Yeah. So maybe he's like twenty four fish, you know, on a per game basis that are now just a wild. Guess he just doesn't do anything. But catch passes eat never scores. He doesn't get carries. So she won't put that in perspective a little bit. And he's always seventy own. He needs to be risky. Yeah. We started over Austin Eker. Yes. Let's see what happens above and Gordon would you start Jordy Nelson or Devin funchess. Funchess. Funches Jordy Nelson or Cortlandt Sutton. That's a good one. I I actually have them back to back. I'll go Jordan Jordy Nelson her Matt Brita. Jordy and PR Brita has not caught a pass and four games. Yeah. I mean breed has got a great chance here. If he's healthy ready to go Oakland. They are terrible against running backs. They allow five point one yards per carry two running backs the third most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Yeah. How excited are you about nap Rita? He's a number two running back on the week with sixteen on a by the. I don't even think he's a number two running back and PR, but and and non I I like him more than seven Coleman, but less than Jordan Howard and less than Doug Martin. But if he were healthy pretua healthy he'd be a must start, right? No. I don't know if I'd say must start Moster. If he were healthy, he would be most. I mean, I think he's almost are. Now, just again to give them the circumstances. And how would you compare Doug Martin? Same. So you had a both who just start breeder Martin freedom. I would start Martin which tied at Martin PR, sir. Which tight end do you like better kill cook? Kill but they're both in my top five in both back back. All right. Yeah. So don't get cute. Start started. That changes the better, though, if Beth out would you start the raiders? The awful raiders. I'd consider it. Their starting quarterback is better out. I honestly forgot Thomas something. Tom savage is their third string quarterback. I don't know if they'd may be upgrade him, but believe Nick Molen. Okay. Yeah. It's it's interesting. It's an interesting. Yeah. It's it's awful. It's case game's going to be terrible and Marcus Goodwin starter sit. Same thing with Beth, right? I think if Beth replace he's number three receiver with upside. If Beth 'Red is out, no chance. Yeah. I'm probably just sitting regardless. All righty that that does it for this terrible game.

And here we go from Chaz is David joke who tight in a tight end one. Eight number. Okay, low inch. But yes, where do we rank Dion Lewis after the bye? We already answered that question. Yeah. Like top twenty five. Most likely running back by my playoffs in half p PR. I think he means like most most likely to be used Connor Ingram for net. Nick Chubb latavius Murray. Just one. Yeah. Like who's who do you think's? All right. If you were gonna pick to for your stretch run Connor Ingram for net chubby Murray who they bay Ingram Chubb. That's what I was gonna say. Who should I stream over Ben Rothlisberger? This week Dak Prescott Derek Carr or Joe flacco. Yes. I would guess Baltimore with a broken finger. He has not had a good tracker in Baltimore. So who would you pick, Jamie? Deck car. Flacco car Dak flacco. Who is Alex Collins rest of season? He was great this time last year. I waited hoping then they traded for ten Montgomery. So who's the twenty seventeen version about how I read it wrong? What is our Collins recipes what expect from him flex someone you may cut in a couple of weeks? Is Kenny golladay a wide receiver to receive season. Yes. Maybe number one is cordless Sutton, a wide receiver to rest of season. Yes. Probably number three. Should I trade the bears DSP? They have the Rams in the Packers in the playoffs. Sure. But you might win a week with the bears DNC this week. So just keep an eye on that. So so high after that another big, yeah. After this week small wetter Clement rest of season Adams. Think. So. Yeah. Followed by. Sorry. Prefer small Smallwood? Right. Can I give up on either Corey Clement or Chris Thompson? Clement for sure Thomson I told if he can but he may not play again this week. Is Larry FitzGerald a wide receiver three from here on in? Maybe to PR. Yes. Sean McCoy Marlin MAC recipes. Mac. What is Matt breeders value going forward? Loves the injury report low in number two Sutton or Christian Kirk PR season, son. Is Deontay foreman worth keeping in a fourteen team non PR league? No, I still haven't been one. We'll fill up Lindsey top twelve season. Borderline not quite as Leonard fournette an Rb one when he's back. No, no is TJ yelled worth holding onto a twelve team league PR. Yes. I don't really think. So what's the best of these three Marvin Jones, Doug Baldwin or John Brown? Jones morgan. Can I start Carson Wentz every week after his by? Yes. Nick Chubb Adrian Peterson CPR recipes. Chubb job this week. Peterson Chubb is Jordan Howard, Rb two. Yes. Barely Emmanuel Sanders. Jarvis Landry rest of season Sanders centers. What do we do with Doug Baldwin? Hold him. All right. We're gonna finish with regulators. I I let's see I got two segments to choose from here. I think it's it's Halloween. I'm gonna choose the spooky creepy segment. Yeah. All right here, we go. Here's a segment called scary. Fantasy football thoughts. Scary fantasy football thoughts. They will be accompanied by things like this. And this. Okay. Here's a scary fantasy football thought would in Aaron Jones emergence make Aaron Rodgers less than automatic start. No. Now, you don't think so? No, okay. Here's a really scary one Aaron Rodgers one yesterday, two reasons one the defense got worse, and they got rid of guy that he hates. Are we going to have no reliable running backs in Jacksonville? Pittsburgh or Minnesota down the stretch. Potentially. But I doubt it. I think James Connor and littered for net will be reliable down the stretch. So we're Levy on Belen TJ Elden. Dalvand cook inlet savings Maria worry about though that you should worry about home. Here's a scary thought. I don't know. I guess for opponents Denver's run defense is going to get a lot better. If it hasn't already. Based on based on the last two games based on last season when they had the best run defense football. I said they have pretty similar personnel. Didn't really make sense to me why they were doing so poorly and last two games. David johnson. Average two point eight yards per carry Kareem hunt three point one yards per carry. I guess we'll find out this week. They got one of the hottest guys in the league into place them. They do Lamar Miller. All right. That's a little scary. Here's something that's going to really terrify. You is Patrick Mahomes going to be a first round picnics year. No, what I bet you bet you people do like there's a great possibility that he's going to be in the first round of a lot of leagues in the greater Kansas City area. Is he going to be a top twenty picnics year? He should not be if he keeps us up. He will be. And here we go last one creepy question. Is there going to be too much gore in Miami? That was your best one yet. Thank you. And yes, I think there is. What does that mean? For Kenyan Drake going forward. He's coming off to good games. Now, you started as long as they don't have any better wide receivers. And they do right now. I think he'll he'll find involvement in the passing game again. All right. I got some good stuff saved 'til till Thursday show. But right now, I'm going to give you the real thing. Let's do some legit Warren G regulate this is from Zach I play a lot of competitive money leagues. In one league. A two in sixteen has traded saquon Barkley for Nick chub and Wendell Smallwood. It's. PR? Oh, wait. All right. Listen, I'm gonna start to see male over because I forgot what this was this is an Email about a guy who wants players with a particular type of name on his just say, you're muffs before the Email. I'll just going to say, I'm just gonna read it. What's? Okay. Well now twice. But this guy wants a particular type of name on his roster. So I'm not going to say what it is. But all of you at home need to follow along. All right. He traded Barkley for chub and Smallwood. And then he dropped other starting players for the likes of Beth, erred Dixon, Trenton cannon and feel Riddick. And even Charles Johnson Richard Rodgers Jimmy Garoppolo Willie Snead and Rex Burkhead. He owned Robert woods. David, Johnson woods and Johnson. And he kept them. He dropped Godwin. Hogan Burton Lamar Miller and Cup is examples. Clearly, he wants a certain theme of names the commission ready to kick him out of the league and restore the team. But he's arguing that if we do that. We also have to kick out a team that happens own AB hide and butter and just picked up Heintz that the true story and also banned him from using the Browns DST, I'm dying laughing. But please regulate. Out of the league. It's a great effort, but kicked out of the league. I hope everybody was able to enjoy that as much as we were slightly inappropriate, but we're mostly adults here. And I don't think the kids got it. This one is from Jamie Eisenberg, but not like somebody pretending to be, Jamie. It involves a long standing Lee created by the Commissioner a few years ago, the Commissioner decided to appoint a co Commissioner to hold the prize pool, including the free agent pool where we bid with real dollars at the end of last season. At least two players who were owed money were not paid. Because the coca mission has gone AWOL at least two other teams, including the Commissioner who on the league, we're paid before the co Commissioner went AWOL, I said, the co commissions charge payments. He didn't pay two teams at least two teams. What do you think is the best resolution the teams that are owed money have to bite the bullet and get none of the money. The road the Commissioner is ultimately responsible for paying all the amount. Paid by the Kokomo before going AWOL. Should be totaled and divided proportionately by percentage owed from the pool or some other resolution. Was the league in on the idea that the coke mission was holding all the money? Would you like me to call this person and ask? Yes. I don't think you have to right here. And everybody was okay with that before it happened. But this isn't really, Jamie. No, this isn't really early. No, oh, you said not somebody pretending to be Jamie's I thought it actually was. Oh, no, no. I'm sorry. Not Jamie, somebody pretending to be Chamie someone pretending to be Jimmy. Okay. Not me. I would say there's a couple different options. Here. If everyone in the league, new Toco Commissioner was in charge of the money, and everyone was okay with that beforehand than the answer. Unfortunately is a if this was a decision that Commissioner made without involving anyone else from the league. And then afterwards said sorry ho Commissioner took your money than the answer is B. Oh, wow. I disagree with you shocker. You're saying the answer is a the teams that are owed money have to bite the bullet and get none of that money. They're owed or be the Commissioner is ultimately responsible for paying all. No, you're wrong. What should happen is the teams that have been paid should give some of their winnings to the teams that haven't been paid? I disagree completely. What's how could teams get screwed out of their winnings? That's ridiculous because somebody took off with. Okay. But that doesn't mean that these two teams in particular should get screwed. Everybody should lose their money. Yeah. That's why we need to make it right? This is like this is really bad heath. Well, I'm shocked. Jamie. Can you weigh in? Forget it. No, I'm sorry. If everybody to people get paid, then the people who got paid should give up some of their winnings and make it right? Yeah. You can't you can't just have them. Just get paid on sees heath. Terrible. Terrible. Heath. I think that the people that didn't get paid should track down the co Commissioner they've got more motivation than anyone else. All right next up. Jose says dude in my league proposed the trade he trades Ezekiel Elliott, I give him James Connor straight up. No excuses. He put that in writing on our group chat. When I sent the trade. He backed out arguing that he'll wait for the Levy on bell situation to clear up. He'll wait for the Levy on bell situation. Clear up is it fair for him to chicken out of the tree that he proposed in the first place. Regulate one hundred percent fair. Yeah. Using that the fall through. Yeah. I guess that's true. It's a little weak. But it's fair. All right next up. This is from Joe a guy sent me a trade offer of his Mike Evans for my James, Connor. I saw the trade Sunday morning. And I gave it some thought. And I accepted the trade. I gave up Connor. I got my edits the early games would already started. But that doesn't matter because there were no injuries or breaking news that happened between the trade being sent and the trade being accepted. But soon after I accepted the deal the guy who sent me the offer messages the whole league and tells everyone to veto the trade. He also tells the commission was a mistake and the commission also everyone to veto it without even talking to me, obviously gets veto right away. Since it only takes a few votes in the Commissioner says to veto it turns out the guy who offered me. The trade says he quote changed his mind and quote forgot to cancel it. I say that you have to know what's going on with your own team. And also don't send out offers. You wouldn't do? I also feel that I never got a fair chance that people vetoed. Under false information. Some might say, it's collusion. Tell other teams veto a trade. So far, the commission has said anything to me. And I feel like I'm being screwed regulators. What say you? I mean don't play in leagues that have vetoes. Forbidding you to say that quickly. It is obvious that a people play leagues vetoes, you shouldn't be you can't just how many letters stories on this day of horror must we hear about trade vetoes before we just accept that. The wrong answer is trade. We does I under his bed. You might be. Right. But that does I I am right. But that doesn't help these people. Yeah. It helps everybody that hears that message and decides not to have trade next year. It helps them this. No help. I'm gonna be. Solution to this be the voice of reason villes there is no solution to this. Because you can't police the way that people use their veto if they have that power to veto. They have the power of what people are using the power to veto. You don't say, hey, everybody veto this trait. I thought they didn't want to do. That's pathetic. That guy's baby. Tell me baby. Tell them we trade vetoes or four leagues of babies. They don't have to be trained vetoes can be dealt with responsibly. What I would say is that as a guy who has once said like, you know, if you send out a trade offer. And then the guy gets hurt that. And then it gets accepted that that traits should be vetoed. This is different. There were no injuries. He should have been more on top of it. He's no, you you are you are in the right? This should not have been vetoed. You should get. How are you helping him telling him what the right thing should have been at least unlike just as unhelpful quit the league. Yeah. You're you're trying to make him feel better about this bad thing that happened because of the terrible rule that they have I'm trying to fix the terrible. But like that's just that's rule. Number one. A fantasy regulators rule number one is we don't like trade us, even though I kind of liked it. That's how when you like it. Okay. We read six trade emails every time. We do the segment. Well, that's what people have questions about. By the way, we get like at least thirty a week now, by the way, regulars last one. And then we will send you off to go trick or treating. I heard about the owner who added and dropped all streaming tight ends to prevent his opponent from getting any. Here's what I did want. Instead was it ethical or just fun. This is from Brad, by the way, someone had dropped an injured Oto Beckham last year to waivers in our three keeper league anyone picking up backup would get him as a thirteenth round keeper next year. I am mmediately added and then dropped about fifteen useless kickers. So that the transaction move below the street on anyone's phone, hoping no one would notice, and I then pick up Beckham Beckham gets dropped any makes all these addresses of kickers to move the the initial Beckham dropped down. So nobody would see what you're actually acting this out as if someone's watching you like move transactions. Now, you could see that you could see me now, you can't see us. We can see you. Okay. When you pick your nose by the twenty minutes ago, we saw it does that a good tactic. Or a bad move dropping the transaction from the screen. It's nothing. Illegal or unethical. I think it's fun. I think it's you would have vetoed him from the league. I would or heath would have you would have. I don't think it's the right thing to do. I don't think it's nice people should be dicey to get him. It didn't work. It's not nice. What do you think? Michael McDonald, say he said gotta go by we're out of here. Everybody. This is the spookiest music. I can think of have a great Halloween.

Got you. Covered. Listen to Golden State media cut sets football podcast. And welcomes GMC football podcast fraught she by the GMC podcast network. I'm your host Jeff. Mallon often with me for the last couple of days is Jesse and we're gonna go on about Libya bell and his possible destinations by end season while still going to be talking about the Rams and how losing their two corners. And is that a big affect on them in the NFC west race. And also we'll be talking about the New England Patriots in Miami Dolphins matchup and how much of an impact that will be throughout the rest of the season. And we'll be talking about anything else that comes reminds. So we'll go right into the Levy on bell talks. Do you think Jesse that levian bell is the perfect fit for the eagles or do you think he's meant for somewhere else? I mean, you look at it earlier today, Jason lockenfora tweeted it out reported that they were asleep or team. So it's not like I mean, it's all rumors at this point. The jets have been a team that have inclined the jets of coordinate pro football talk by Florida, whatever having quired about trading for we talked about it a little bit yesterday, but as far as the eagles on the surface you when you hear that you think, okay, that doesn't work. They got all these players. I mean, how would they be able to pay later on? Come into the season and you think about it. I mean, who are they really playing paying now? Yeah. Got Nick. Foles, Nick foles is I mean these these second biggest deal on that team currently? Yeah, foot or go ahead. Sorry. Sorry, interrupt. But I'm saying this is probably the best possible time to get Levy on if you're the eagles because of how many people you're not paying at the moment because of rookie deals and such. And even like you have what five more four, four or five years. Carson winces deal. You got three more seasons, remorse, seasons of his deal. Sorry. But a. As soon as that ends than you're gonna have an ultimatum. So why not take a big front low contract for Levy on now and worry about when when's has his brand new big boy contract later? Yeah, because you looking out and people my leg, their cats base all they only have five mil left and cap space, and that's fine and dandy, but you look more into it and according to spot track Fletcher Cox, he's on a deal, two hundred twenty two, but I think the team can get out of that in the next couple years. Nick foles. I mean, the guys of backup quarterback. They can get out of his deal. They want Jason Peters is, would you trade foles to get to like just to get something out of it, trade, Nick foles? Yeah, Nick foles has like dole value right now. So I would say use Novelli right now. I mean, you don't think any team could take them like I would say like the forty Niners would I if I was them, I would take a chance at with with the money is slim at the moment, but with. With a backup quarterback. You don't have to pay him that much with his contract he has now, he's not really worth that much granted. So the Niners could take up that contract or I guess. But I mean, would make no sense for the eagles the trade a mile because Wentz coming off of an ACL injuring gets hurt like he did last year. I mean, you have no Nick foles to fill it. Well, if Wentz gets hurt again, that is bad luck. I don't. I don't see him getting hurt again. Terry's ACL twice in two years. But if you're the eagles, you can't just go off. All of this would be bad luck. You have to prepare for every situation. So you do always need a backup plan. Also being a top team in the NFL it's always great to have a solid backup quarterback which they do. So I don't. I wouldn't make sense for them to train them, and also you wouldn't get much for him with a full spin civil MVP. I'm assuming there's no rumors or anything about it as of late, but I'm assuming Tom teams are asking about him. I wouldn't say right now his, I think teams reply calling about bottom in the preseason. You saw how poorly he played and even we want a week to, he wasn't great. I'm not sure people are really. I mean, if you think that foles trend is over yet, Nick foles Abaco quarterback. That's all he'll ever be okay. He'll give you a solid five or so games. And after that, it's pretty much you wait and see till he falls off. So. The bow, Jimmy Garoppolo. Do you agree with that? Or do you think that injury was just like, just a bad luck thing and he'll be back into a starting franchise form. Next season is different because foles has been in the league for walk rob below. I mean, he's still early on in his career. We still got a way in see what ended up happening as far as his development and all. I mean, we've already talked enough about Jimmy Garoppolo getting back to foles and all that gallon things really any value in as far as bell goes. I mean, I think it'd be solid. They're like I said, looking at the surface, people may think all, well, how do they make it work? They just won the SuperBowl. They gotta be paying someone and again they are, but they're not big deals or anything like that. But again, we gotta wait until a lot of those rookie deals. And a lot of this other countries aspire when they're asking for extensions, they're going to be asking for a lot. Yeah. But I mean, the only positions you really pay a lot of money like that is the quarterback and again, when is up for a deal that will be. I said the feeling of and this is all this is all hypothetical because we're not even sure if this rumor is true. It's just more so a talking point because this is a big team and like the eagles and they'd be on bell there. I mean, easily make them Super Bowl favorites once again. Okay. You look at it if they were to trade for him. I'm I'm sure how he rose in that eagles for an office would be smart enough to give lady on Bella deal where a lot of his guaranteed money is coming off the books and the first two years of his deal. And by the time Wentz needs his, you'll be able to pay him the eagles. I mean, there's no way you bring on bell and don't do that because I know they are thinking long term as far as Wentz is the guy you absolutely have to pay absolutely agree with that completely, but with Libyan bell or you see, Kirk cousins on in Minnesota got a full glue fully guaranteed contract DC wednes- getting something around that same type of thing. Or do you see more of a safe contracts if you will. What is safe? I would even say like not all guaranteed like maybe only like a like not even. A third of it is guaranteed thing because he's coming did had that UCLA injury. So do you play? You put all your eggs in this basket and give them that huge amount of contract in most of the guaranteed or arming Winston his agent or only going to sign a deal that's beneficial to them. I mean, maybe went, seems like the kind of guy kinda like their car type in this is where the rate is kinda messed up, fully guaranteed contract like her cousins got again, I don't think you'll get a fully guaranteed one. I mean cousins only getting about eighty four million guaranteed. He'll get a deal like Aaron Rodgers or Matt Ryan, where they're getting their like near one hundred hundred million near one hundred mil guaranteed much still. That's still over hundred million dollar contract, though. Yeah, but again, it's all about the guarantees, the incentives and all that different species compared everybody else with when you come to good quarterbacks on another level, he's still number one in my mind. Yeah, it's about Ryan. He's still getting a hundred mil guaranteed. I'm sure that was after an MVP season though. Now you're paying your, but you're not paying for what he's done, paying for what he can do for you in the future. And that's where eagles are doing there. I mean, if we want to get this Mannix was going to win the MVP last season before he blew out his knee. I'm sure they still still in the running for MVP. Yeah, it was. It was very late in the season towards ACL and I'm sure that by the time I mean even that even if he doesn't tears ACL there still sewer bowl contenders and all absolute wells. They won the Super Bowl for crying out loud so they wasn't just like him alone. It was. He just had a great team around him jazz. So the it was going to pay him as if he's the best quarterback in league. He's going to get that kind of money. The eagles franchise. Yeah. He was idiotic to low ball him. Oh, absolutely agree with that. I'm just saying, like, would you put his ACL injury in in a in perspective when signing that contract? Like lies far as offering a deal. Yeah, I'm if you want, but you're going to low ball went so you could just go out and walk. So. There's going to be team at over big. They can't low ball him even ACL injure not. I wouldn't say overpays them, but they will pay him. They will break the Bank. I could see like a lot of teams will break the Bank for Carson Wentz so they can't afford to low ball. And I'd say when he's at his best, he has one of the best quarterback. So I mean, you're going to have to pay 'em top-five quarterback money when he first came to league out of North Dakota state. Did you think he was going to be this good? Or do you think it was just part of a week? He's he was playing week college teams. You don't really look at the wins and losses aspect of a quarterback coming into the draft more so than mechanics and what they can do. I don't really. I'm not a quarterback guru or anything like that. But I mean he pretty much fit the Bill for your quarterback arm. Strength is able to move around. He's got pocket awareness and he's got a canon of an arm. So I mean when when you talk about wins and losses, you're totally right. Like Mitchell Trubisky was the second overall pick and he had the worst record going into for quarterback drafted that high. In history? Yes, eight and five. I listen North Carolina. Like you don't expect someone like that to go second overall? Yeah, I think the average fan, maybe we'll look at the winds and losses part of it. But again, I mean, darnold I would definitely put it in. I would definitely put that in consideration when picking someone will. They get Josh Allen with Wyoming. He didn't do anything. Granted. Yeah, and people thought he was big high. Yeah, I guess. But I mean, you look at it now. I mean, he just people Vikings. He had one game. Let's take a chill that's saying these aren't saying. I'm saying he had a great game, no doubt about it. He's he's look. He's high right now. He's on a high. He should keep going, keep them women going, but saying he was the better quarterback, Josh Rosen still to be determined. Yeah, but I mean, we didn't even bring up Josh Rosen. I'm just saying that draft class. Yeah. I mean, you look at it, but like I said, wins and losses. Don't really matter as far as college quarterbacks, I mean, if you. Yeah, I'd say they don't matter at all. I think I think draft the quarterback is the hardest thing to do. Yeah, definitely. The one position you can't like guarantee but bringing it back to lady on bell. I mean, as far as the eagles possibility, I still think he ends up with a team like the colts or jets may be the forty Niners, but you got kind of way big f because they just lost their franchise quarterback in their pain him a lot of money, and also the colts do have Andrew luck, which could be very dangerous one two punch in the AFC south. Yeah, plus you got t. y. Hilton there too. Yeah, that could be a dangerous team. We've on like I'm not saying that teams get to be the best team lead with lady on, but I'm saying definitely pushed them up to to a potential playoff up to opportunity. Yeah, I'd say later on. Living on what the colts still Jacksonville there. So I mean, would you see him well? Oh, you mean the ABC south from their him going the Jackson. I'm like, no, they have letter for net. No, no, yeah. But the jets are still I think the for rough front runners for him. Yeah, I'd say it's too early because I mean, the Steelers don't really have to train them soon. I mean, they could wait. Oh yeah, they take their time though. If they trade them, it's going to be by the trade deadline. Don't think it'll be anything soon unless someone just gives them a great deal. If the after winning at the trade deadline, someone's get offer them something ridiculous just so they will make it past that deadline, pull a Browns like they did last year with AJ McCarron if you remember that. Yeah, where they had the trading just in didn't forward it to the NFL. So I think waiting in the at the deadline is best because you're going to get the most ridiculous offers at that time. Yes, we'll see what ends up happening with him. But yeah, but we're gonna, say a little short break. We'll come back. We'll talk about the Rams and losing both of their corners. And if that's gonna affect their chances at a Super Bowl run, we'll be right back. Right after this. The average sedan is built with a steel frame equipped with six airbags.

Right now we're going to go about the Los Angeles Rams losing both. Their corner is a key to leave and Peter's Peter's might play this Sunday, but it's still a questionable. Do you think this could put an impact on their up playoff from? I mean, if you look at it. The forty Niners. You wanna just pretty much put out there. Not a good team at the NFC. West is not good at all. The are not a good team. I mean the seven to eight win team. I think Seattle's, honestly, gonna finishing second in this division. Now that before Nour's without Jimmy Garoppolo and you get the cardinals. I mean, that's a whole other problem went on over there. But as far as the Rams they are still clear cut without their top two corners, what not the best team in the NFC west and by the time playoffs come to keep to leave should be back Peter's. Like I said, he still might play on Sunday, so you're not really sure if he's even going to miss time. So I mean as far as goes, I don't really think that there's providence start on the if he's still lingering from an injury. Guy says he could play. He's ready to play the plan. All right. But I will say the NFC west, probably the week is division in the league at the moment right now. But I mean when three out of the four teams are looking at eight is a good season, then that's pretty bad. They when you have one team dominated like the Rams. Are most likely going to you could say the as he south is up there too weakness. I don't see another team as weak as the NFC west of the, you know, but record. I mean, even if you have Jimmy Garoppolo there was four hours. He plays a full season. They still like even with these injuries, they can say, Jimmy, Garoppolo, tears, ACL. I mean, they secondary still weak. They're still not close to the Rams or Killys right now is their secondary. Yeah, they're still not close around even if the Rams are missing to leave or Peters. I mean, the Rams are still the best team in the NFL and the foreign honours laws. Richard Sherman for the next couple of weeks. I'm not sure like Richard Sherman. He was still playing lockdown ball. They didn't pass them like rarely at all. During that whole game in last three games, they barely passed locking down defenders. When you when you look at the passes that were the poor secondary's only completely opposite side of where Richard Sherman is like a keep Weatherspoon is playing very well. The safeties are struggling. Obviously, it's just it's not Richard Sherman. Through only of defensive weapon in that secondary and you can tell he barely gets any thrown balls to him. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think Richard Sherman on the back end of his career, he's still playing well, he's into right now, but you still playing very strong if you watch those games. Yeah. And he also, I mean, I'm not sure really what he was thinking as far as when he signed his deal with forty, nine hundred made it a lot of on the rise because of Garoppolo in the five wins. I think everyone kind of self only five wins in a row, the end, the season. That could be mean something with him signing with the forty Niners, but it's more so his contract which is filled with incentives and all as motivation for himself. But you got to be smarter at that point. I mean him just not going in there without without money. He has playing money already. Yeah, but yes. I mean, if that's not really important to him. We, we don't know him. We don't. We don't know what he's thinking about, and he could definitely still have plenty of money out of his Seattle contract as well as probably some -dorsements. So I wouldn't say that I would say that he got those incentives as motivation for himself like playing, but you play better. You get paid better to have a thing, but maybe that's not it, I'm not sure, but how you're looking at the forty, nine or secondary going into their holes, they the secondary's their whole, right? Yeah. And getting back to the Rams I mean, does this like keep to leave with him being out eight weeks? Do you think this makes them any worse than the Vikings? No. Anything all the top teams? Well, they are playing the Vikings, so it's going to be very interesting matchup that's for sure. I think this will definitely show where they are in the NFC though this this could be the biggest of the season so far and looking at their schedule. They got the Vikings Thursday night. I mean, we'll talk more about that game tomorrow, but we could both assume maybe Vikings are the favourite just giving the Rams are hurt going into it. Yeah, but I'm also looking at the Vikings and how bad they played against the bills. I'm tailing taking into consideration, but losing key to leave is a huge hole in that in that defense. And I remember now that it's Thursday night game, I'm not too sure that Peters does end up playing just giving. I think it's too early to put them in after what getting Nutley the game on Sunday. Yeah, I think it was a game on Sunday. They were planning the Vikings, maybe that's different there, but Thursdays are always a big if. Yeah, so then there in Seattle after that they got down, take that one Seattle, then they're in pretty easy schedule going after that the Packers and the saints, but having planes. And if he teams twice, gives them a huge advantage for seating wise is none of those teams. I don't think I think go to sweep the entire NFC west. Yeah. I mean, we're looking at it now to to leave his on. So he'll be out eight weeks. He should be back around week, eleven week, twelve or whatnot. So I put him on Irish who have them to the playoffs because I think they're still, I think they're confident they'll make the playoffs still with the division win plus with him being out a week, you kinda got to put him on our giving. You need that roster spot. You're not gonna let right around there. So he'll be back. He's also a little old. Yeah, we still playing at a high level also, you'll be back. I mean, he'll be back week, twelve. It's not really gonna affect them as far as maybe short term, but they actually, you know what? I don't think it's gonna be a problem. Now I think about the Browns are still going to be great team. They're still going to pick up this offense is still high power, these great defensive line, but losing those two guys is gonna be a problem. But I don't think it's going to be a huge problem Peter's. I mean, if they're missing him, it'll probably be for this week and he should be back next. So possibly out that they said it said it could be two to three weeks to depending. But again, if he says he's ready to play, even. Said he's ready to play now. I would not even wanna play on Thursday because it's too early to to early to tell too early to put them back in the lineup, just because Thursdays nights are always known for injuries. Yeah, I'm gonna big fan of the Thursday night games. I mean, like you said, it's the whole injury thing. I'm Richard Sherman, I think, didn't he tears achilles on a Thursday night last year, I believe it was so yeah. Yeah. So there's a night games are meet our problems to begin with. We both know that going anywhere though. Unfortunately, for the players, at least we both know the NFL is trying to out money, but while they're getting a lot of money for those games, so why get rid of it? If it's getting a profit still and they're gonna Rams. I mean, do you think that this is a Super Bowl bus type year for them? I went to ruler bus. I feel I still have two or three years of of contention left. I'd say it's boiler buzz mainly because looking at the off-season that they had you brought onto leave. You brought on Peter's, you brought onto your brought on cooks. I mean, you added a lot of top tier players, and I feel you do that over an off season. Your goal is to go out and win. Sewer wife. Think if maybe brought on maybe like a Peters and cooks possibly than maybe I got a few years, but I mean with as many guys, they, you don't need think this is the best time to win a Super Bowl. If they don't, it's it's they still little more opportunity left. But I think they think right now, this is the best time to win it. But if they don't win it, I still think they slept a contentious opt or yeah, definitely. They still got about five years left or whatnot, but I'm just saying as far as the moves they made this season. I mean, sues gonna be gone after this year. I'm assuming I mean, they only brought him on for one year, fourteen million dollar deal. He might retire. He's getting up there naked also, what do you still play on dominant level? So just a matter of, I mean, I guess I'm not as healthy stay healthy. Yes. So you got that. I mean to leave, I think he's on the last year of his deal. He's currently got on Peter's actually take a look at their contracts. Think Peter's might be at the end of their deal to. So a lot of these guys on those long short short term contracts about team? Yeah, just the guys that they brought on. I mean, they did sign cooks long-term, which was right, but as far as Peters to leave and all other guys, I mean, yeah, it is. Short term. So I think that is why it is a Super Bowl or bus type of season for them. I mean looking at sue and he said, he's fourteen mill this year. He's only on it for a one year deal. He's an unrestricted free agent next season. So obviously that was one where the team he's going to say, I'm not ready to play with you. It depends on how they knew this. They won't be able to resign soon given sues still gonna demand, top defensive tackle. You just pay Donald girl and you gotta worry about golf also. Plus you just paid Brandin cooks, offer golf was, well, you got another three seasons of his rookie deal. So you can be a little little greedy when it comes to certain players, but just you can't. They're gonna keep. They're gonna. Keep on with these short term contracts. Yeah, and Marcus Peters. He's currently still on a rookie though. He's only making about a little less than two million. He is a unrest he's got to. He's got a nother year after this with the Rams and after that to twenty he'll be a free agent. And then let me see if I could find to leaps contract real quick. I think to leave also on the final year of his, he's making about eleven million this year total. So it'll be interesting to see. I mean, how they progress without. Guys after. But like I said, I mean, I think it is Super Bowl or bust. I won't take him out of contention. I'm not. I'm not taking him out of contention, but I'm just saying this year, like get your best chance to win. I agree with that. Yes. So we'll see what ends up happening with them. Like I said, I mean as far as it goes without to leave, they're still the top team in the NFC Minnesota is I don't know. You take Minnesota, or would you say actually all the top teams? I mean Minnesota's. Good. They had a little blip in the radar with you bike with the bills by when. Soda Los Angeles Rams and see that thirteen. I don't think there's another team, like I say the eagles, but there's been struggling to, I'd say, fairly struggling. I two weeks without wets now they got their top teams the NFC they're on their way. I wouldn't put him up there yet. I mean, they got the defense is just Bisky. He's been kind of struggling. He's just not a lot of picks. Yeah, he's looking like a young quarterback in that's, I mean, fine. Rex Grossman whilst whatever. He's like Rex Grossman almost. I wouldn't go him. I wouldn't say that though. Rich Grossman did help. The team gets this didn't help, but he was the quarterback when they got to the Super Bowl, doesn't six India again, that team did all demons. You also did have Devin Hester who I'd say lacquer. Yes, just he's a hall of Famer for reason, but I would definitely say that this bears team is you should not just look at them book off of them because they're poor offense. Their defense could take them to a playoff run. A deep playoff run. But I mean, you're looking at the eagles Rams and bike. Those are complete teams right now. The bears are nowhere near complete teams given their offense. I'd say. And as far as the production, they're putting up on the offense as far as Philly, I media, they didn't look great on offense. I'd say for the first two weeks, but now they got once back. I think that's going to completely change. I think go back to being the dominant team that they were an honest Feeley is the team that we need to look out for as far as challenging the Rams the Vikings are great all around. But like I said, I think it's the eagles that we need to pay attention as far as when it comes to challenging the Rams. So if you put the first seat as the Rams do put seconds, he is the eagles Vikings. Are made. It's too early to tell, but I'd say I go with the eagles given they play in the NFC east and you got the Vikings who still gotta play the Packers. One more time you gotta play. The bears twice in the lines are still decent. True, but I'm definitely saying that the Rams needed this type run with a good team just moving to LA if they were still playing like the playing Saint Louis, then who knows what the call seem would look like. Yeah, is they? They needed that attendance before they get the brand new stadium in the next couple of years. So they needed this more than any other team. This this kind of good run. I definitely can't wait for that new sandwich. Always great living in California given. It's only about a what four hour drive away from where we're at five hours tower, but also it's, it's gonna be. It's basically a little city. Yeah, it's huge and you don't want like a bad team to go in there as the face of that stadium. You know what I mean? Yeah. So pretty decent twos. So honestly, it's the best time for these two teams to be good into a new stadium like that, and we're doing the charge out on stubhub center because no one even shows up there. I. Yeah, it's do you think it's because they're because the charges are playing at a certain level or do you think people just don't want to go to the games? It's just a CIA. The charges of never really been a big market team, a big name team or actually did stern LA in the sixties with AFL without for one season, they went to San Diego. Do you think you should have stayed in San Diego. I mean, I don't think they have really had a choice. I don't think they'd be the should've, but dean spans didn't really wanna stay about it. Yeah. But now they're going to be a huge LA stadium, which if they, if they're good going into the Rams are then they are going to get, they're gonna get a crowd regardless Jesse what ends up happening, but it's going to be very interesting. Next couple of years has that stadium is built. But again, it's we're a little ways away from that too, as well as the new Vegas stadium with the raiders. There's still a lot to come, but I think the more say about the Rams that's all I got for the Rams right now. All right. We're in take another short break. When we come back. Rid is talk about the AFC east and the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots, and their match up on Sunday and what are the repercussions heading after the map of that game. So we'll get into that after this, the average sedan is built with a steel frame and equipped with six airbags.

Welcome back to the football podcast. We've talked about the Rams we by Libyan bell. We've talked about other places. Labial could go to like the eagles, and now we're gonna go onto the AFC east in the dolphins and patriots, and that match up on Sunday and the possible outcomes of that game and what will have on that division. What do you think that's going to happen on that game? That's are saved my pick for Friday giving. That's when I usually make them. But as far as my biggest problem with his game is not the fact that I mean minus three and coming into it or whatever. But it's the fact that if Miami were to lose this one, I feel like everyone's been kind of saying, okay, Miami wins this when the there were good team, if they lose their not. And I guess tell though it's three, you know a lot of our three now. Yeah, let's say, well, not even that, but it's just the fact that bonhomie me comes out of this game three and one. Are you going to say they're a bad team because they lost to the patriots. I mean, under the day, like I said, coming out of this game, no matter what it's either they're coming out of this game losing and being a one game on the patriots in that ABC for the divisional lead or they come out being up three games. I mean, I don't think it's fair to say, okay, if you don't beat this team that you're just not good, whatever you did before that meeting beating the titans jets raiders is meaningless. I think. I mean, it is too early to tell what teams are good and what teams aren't giving. I mean, we've seen the chiefs last start off like six one or whatnot, and ended up from nine seven barely getting into the playoffs. So I'm not going to go and say like, make any brash the decisions after this game, I'm not gonna. Save Miami loses their bad team. I'm not going to say if they win, they're a great team. I mean, obviously, if they do win in New England, it does problem of bit given they've struggled in doing in the past last years. They've been splitting with the patriots, and that's kind of how I figured it would go this season whether or not mind me was three and nowhere. I figure that Miami either way was going to split with the patriots, and I think they're winning in New England is a tough task. I say, I'm not going to be my pick and I'll wait till Friday giving. I'm still kind of wavering. But right now, I mean it's still something that's tough even with the patriots being. What are they wanted to? Yeah, I don't think that's the same page. We've seen the past. I think that's a huge factor in this and with Miami and three. No, it it still you're right. Is still we don't know if this is a fluke or not, or this is just a team that's and then ends poorly, but it's exciting to see actual competition the seas for once. Yeah. 'cause I mean, we gotta the pages basic dominate since two thousand and one. I mean the only that they didn't win. It was back in two thousand eight Bernie tours ACL and no one Levin. Five. Yeah. And then you had Miami winning that division. It's truly incredible how dominant that patriots team has been in the last seventeen years. And now with this with them struggling early this season and Miami going three. No, this is good to be. One of the Icee be game to watch. Besides the Vikings Rams game cover minds me of the year. They fired Joe Philbin, Dan Campbell coming into the interim coach, they blow out Tennessee, think it was. They blew out Houston. And I mean they're playing great, their records decent at the time. Then they got a Thursday night game in New England and the patriots. And I mean they were completely bald blown out the water there. And I think when I'm saying is by at that time we knew about team those two games Scher whatever they had to be Wednesday said right here. I wouldn't really say this determines whether or not their team. So let's see the three. And right now we four, they got the patriots. We five got the Bengals week, six. They got the bears week, seven. They got the lines. I'd say bye week, seven or eight if they're five and three by week eight, I'd say that makes them a good team. I'm not going to pass judgement on them this early on in the season. If they are five, three. Do you see them getting a playoff spot after that that the rest of the schedule that has played the jets are mean I'm assuming they'd win. They're giving. I mean it was a big win week to end. We work, then you play in lambo that's going to be tough. So I'd say it's about six, four right there. Then they play the colts Miami's always done well against Andrew luck. So I'd say they gotta win there at seven and four. I'd say they beat the bills at eight and four. And the Bengals in bears is also like those extreme ATRs are good. It'd be tough. Yeah, I'd say about it. I'd say that the dolphins and finishing somewhere around nine and seven or ten and six somewhere in between there, ten and six didn't get some. Then nine and seven. It's possible giving. We had a nine and seventeen getting the bills from mistaken, mom. I mean, they'll be in playoff contention by week. Seventeen is still, sir. I'm not gonna go and say that they're going to win the division or anything like that. They do have a tough schedule that's for sure. Yeah. But like I said, as far as them in the division, I'm not going to go and write the patriots off just yet given it is the New England, Patriots. We have seen this team. I mean, honestly year in year out struggle in September. Right? But they always come out strong. You're right about that. So it's again, it's only three weeks of the season. We're just getting into week for who knows going to be in the playoffs by week. Seventeen. Yeah. And I mean, I've seen people say, oh, well, Miami's three, but who have they played? You look at it Philadelphia hat, and I'm not comparing to the eagles as far as saying the Subaru, anything like that. Just bear with me here for a second. Right? So the eagles last year, their schedule was a cakewalk through up. Okay. They had games against the Rams. I think they played another game was against the Rams and they won that one. But the big story was the eagles was, are they going to be able to go deep into the playoffs giving their easy schedule? And I don't think that. I mean, you look at the schedule, they played, obviously went out one suitable you can dock in NFL team for handling business even if their schedule is easy throughout. I think it's kind of you play the team that's in front of you, and if you win, you win. If you lose, you lose either way you gotta play the guys in front of you and do whatever you can take that win. Yeah, I don't really play into the whole team is bad. I mean, we looking at it, this is the NFL. You're not a bad player if you're playing in the NFL. That's true. So it's still very early to tell, but that New England, Miami game is get a, I believe it's going to be probably the most impactful game of the week, like just based on going into the next games after that as far as narratives and storylines Scher it, it's it has the most story to it may maybe the Rams Vikings do think Miami definitely has a lot riding on this game even though it's an early matchup it's still a very important matchup. Yeah, because the storylines you'll get if Miami wins this, okay, the storyline will be Miami is for real and with the patriots losing the storyline will be okay. This might be the end of the patriots dynasty. And if my legs wait on that while I'm just saying that's what the national media will put out. Yeah, not that hard to predict what they're going to be saying. If Miami loses it will be, oh, same old, Miami. And if the patriots went, obviously giving, if Miami loses it will be okay. The patriots are back. They'll be. I mean, there's gonna be overreactions regardless of the outcome. Yeah, there's always overreactions everywhere. I mean, that's that's the media's job that's what is BS job is that's what Fox Sports is job is is to generate headlines and clicks. All right, because I remember switching over sports with the NBA at Kris, Haines, the NBA writer for the for ESPN put out an article last year saying LeBron this while the Cavs LeBron could take a meeting with the warriors. I think we all knew LeBron would never go to the words or anything like that, but with them putting that out and draws buzz and draws clicks. So yes, the national media is going to overreact here. I mean, what can you do? I guess, yeah, but it's, it's still a great match up, I think. Yeah. I think it's gonna be close. I don't see a blowout, but if there is a very surprising one, I mean Vegas has Miami or. Yeah, the patriots favored by six and a half and seven. Do you think majors will cover in this? It's pages when one touchdown game. If now, like a field goal? Yeah, I don't see it as like a twenty one point demolishing of either team. I think. I think that's a perfectly good estimate. Yeah, because Miami going into New England that's been their thing. They usually tend to tend to lose by double digits in New England, at least the last few years. I think this year is different things going to be that much closer game, like you said. And I think that. For my my through cents my opinion on this, I think Miami actually does have a good team. Do. I think they have a team was gonna win the AFC east. I would go as far to say that I'm still saying the patriots the top dog. But as far as wild card picture goes towards the end, the season, at least from what I predicted early on the season, they will be in that mix. I'm not saying they'll go in the playoffs. This is probably one of their best chances to win the east in any other season last ten years. I mean, especially if they win here because yours is the patriots. But if you're three games on the patriots in the ANC is any point in time. I mean, it is going to be tough for them to make up that ground and plus the patriots. The storyline within the storyline this week is Josh Gordon and them getting join element the week after that the patriots have shoveled as far as weapons on the offense. I mean, teams basically settle pensively. They have not been playing well either. That is true. And I mean, let's let's shift over to the patriots real quick. When you say you said earlier in the segment like this does kind of make like this is a different patriots team compared to the last of struggling number, right? Yeah. So. Okay. So we look at it the patriots. Do you trust their defense? Not. Do you say they as of right now? They have any before Josh Gordon plays or anything like that. Do they have any top weapons on the offense? Gronkowski. And even then, I mean, he's been getting doubled and when you're dumb, Togan really hasn't been showing up. Yeah. No, there's said he just got hurt. We you say it's a given that Josh Gordon basically lights up for this team. No. Okay. This is one of the first time I've seen player go into a the patriots team, and I'm not sure how he's gonna respond. Yeah. I mean, you get the running backs or the running backs up to this point. Editing special white has been kinda disappointingly. He's been disappointing losing Dion. Lewis was a huge factor though, and I think you know what it could be that Bella checks. I wanna know if ego is used the such like a bad term, but what Bill getting ego is the. Right term here. The fact that he has been able to let guys go not pay them and bring it other guys to fill in produce the same way. I think that that for granted now I think that could be catching up to them this year. I don't know. I would have liked Lewis was a big part of that offense, especially catching the ball tobacco, like not just running threat. And yeah, he was asking for some money, but I think he was entitled to while we've been playing with the patriots. And yeah, white played good in that once fifty one, but he, I don't. I think the almost was still better running back the I definitely say so too. And I think, yeah, I'm not really sure why Belcher has just simply refused to pay guys. I mean, I guess like I said, if you're able to, I think he wants to send example like no one's above me. Tempa thing doing can hold me out type of thing. It's more of a him having power over people. 'cause we sink is like Chandler Jones go. I mean, they just didn't pay Randy moss and it's worked out more times than not usually when you, let's guys go probably. Not the best citizen. I'd say it was okay because after that we host the end of his career granted. But when when he went to the downers after that you could tell he still at some to offer even last season he played productively, but not to the point. Like Randy moss type of reduction though, I'd say, yeah, I'd say now it is starting to catch up, get hurt that one season with MAs, still in his prime with them. I think that's hasn't shopped at super will once again. Yeah. I mean, she's still in love with Matt Cassel and rainy. Monster played amazing if you had Brady that that's a whole different story. But with like that, how Belgium handles contracts that could be like why people are talking about this start of the ending the dynasty. Like I said, I mean, everything eventually does come to an end and eventually the plan that you've been running for years, they gets pretty much like Bill run thin. Yeah, it'll run thin. I think that could be happening here. Dion Lewis. I'd say maybe is the biggest loss to this team from last year, and he was a huge. Do he was very underrated with the patriots? Yeah, because it's like, I think if you have Dion Lewis here, you not really worrying about your receiving problems. Truth. He was a true dual threat. Yeah, he could run the ball and he could have been one of those big time receivers for that team, and he was he has the ability like a game similar to a lady on bell tog early, David Johnson, not as good as them. I'm not saying that for those out there who might be over, put a huge impact on teen. He's good at catching the ball. It was one of the top free agents going into the last year. Then even then, I mean, Derrick Henry lasted, we saw k, it's time to get rid of DeMarco Murray, MC, Derrick, Henry the guy I'd say even Dion Lewis. That was a little premature to because DeMarco Murray is kind of a one dimensional player. He's a power runner, but like deal Lewis is a multidimensional player. Yeah. And even they, I think they got a very big, very lucky, getting Dion Lewis in that free agency. Yeah. D- on those, I mean is even taken some snaps away from guy like can who was supposed to be guy. I think the lowest serves though snaps Henry play much better. Yeah. So that's how we, I think the patriots that like losing Dion Lewis was probably a huge factor. If he was planning this game, I think it'd be a different story when it comes to facing Miami, but that I mean, that's how much of a factor he was in my opinion. Do you have anything else about the Miami Dolphins, New England, Patriots. I'm as far as this game goes, I'm curious to see Miami has forced a lot of turnovers in the first three games. I'm not thinking they make Brady threw two picks or anything like that, but more so Fitzpatrick is a threat with against patriots ES. You'll lock up whoever's in the slum, curious to see how they deal with gronk and the matchup I'm looking for is exhibit Howard versus Josh Gordon. We know Gordon is going to be playing in this one exhibiting Howard. He's been playing lockdown been well. I'm one of the more underrated quarterbacks. I think now he's starting to get a little bit more national getting a lot of picks recently. I think exhibit Howard limits Gordon, I think this is a game Miami possibly win to get Josh mccown is that offense coordinator and he has a track record or being very good and burying knows what to do. So it's going to be very interesting matches. He how if Gordon does one quick, no Ataman was in his game. I'd say the patriots really don't have any issues on offense against Miami, but given if you're able to lock down Gordon with one on one with Howard and you're able to limit gronkowski. I mean, you can't really, you can't really say, how do you lean on HOGAN or any of those running back to you? I think hasn't been handling that well, and if Eto went, avoid those three letters p. e. n. b. this is not an issue. Yeah, I understand. I only understand why people do this, but we won't get into that. That's just that's Julianna men's fault. But I think they'll be it for the segment, but we'll be come back.

Welcome back to the football podcast. We've talked about a lot of things. We talked about Livy on bell. We talked about the Miami Dolphins, New England, Patriots up. But now I think we should get into more of the rookie quarterback since I believe most of the most. The first the first round picks in starting Baker Mayfield starting Sam. Donald is starting, Josh Rosen, starting, and Josh Allen is starting see as your main. Sorry. Sorry. What who do you see is probably the best rookie quarterback right now? I'd say, I mean, it's a small sample size, and I was just gonna mentioned earlier about Mark Jackson, and he's the only one out of the first round picks to not start thirty second, but I put him as like one of those main. He's yeah, he won't be. He's a worker progress as a project. But as far as the quarterbacks now, I mean is early toes far as the ones where I think will be the most successful as season goes on. I'm sorry, but that game Thursday night between the jets and Browns and watching Baker Mayfield. I'm all in on Baker Mayfield. I'd say he has the most town around him in order to help him succeed. At saying something because he's on the Browns. That's good for him, but with, let's just go just real quick with March accented sees in that first round quarterbacks. Is he in front of RG three? You say. Say that again, we're just about the ravens and then having Jackson taxing. Well, I think so you look at it, I think in flacco was to stink or play or whatever you wanna call it. I think they can pull amid game. Lamar is gonna come in, but I think that hardball would make RG three these starter after that, I think we've all seen in Harbaugh included that Lamar Jackson isn't ready to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. I agree with that and he has been playing some downs like with some trickery, but I, I don't think he passed a past it. I think he just ran the ball. I hate hate hate hate how they use him as going pretty much, throw them out as a wide receiver like a wild cat or anything like that because I feel more times than not, I'd say about ninety five percent of the time. We all know he's not getting the book and I'd say if you line them up at quarterback, you put flock out there on the boundary receive or whatever, you know, flags. Like I feel like every time you put Lamar Jackson in with flacco your play. Ten on eleven. You think there's too many trick laser trying with the mar- not even interesting trying to force lower into the offense. I wouldn't say that it's just the most. Like I said, it's the whole ten on eleven. You know, one of them isn't going to do anything on this play, and I think the Mark Jackson lining up at receiver like they put him in the slaughter, whatever I am blitzing, whoever is on him. Okay. But it's like a tro prior type of thing where he might become aware to run the future. What about? I hope not. I hope they will be plants corvette. 'cause I mean as far as skill for skill to for tool, he's able to become accurate. Say he's the most explosive quarterback out of all. And I'd say he could probably do most given. He's a dual threat type of quarterback. Honestly, I've always thought he could again this if he develops accuracy and his able to become a decent passer, he could be. He did struggle last here with Louisville into the draft which didn't do him any favors. And I'd say if he's able to develop a decent arm and decent accuracy than he could. Could be a new version of Michael Vick just given how explosive has taken off with the ball. Yeah, I wouldn't put him as the next Michael Vick, but I would definitely say him as a possible a possible. Michael Vick type of player. Yeah, I'd say they're similar skill sets and and then looking at the the ones that are starting now with Mayfield Donald and Alan Rosen who say is the one that you think will take a team to a play-offs of any of those four teams? I mentioned, I think it's Baker Mayfield. He's gotten Jarvis Landry Tonio Calloway Allegra chard Higgins. I like David joke who, and I mean, it's just I think Baker Mayfield. We saw it on Thursday night. We were talking about last week. He has that it factor. I think he, he just came in and everything changed. The defense was playing much better. I mean, the defense was playing while throughout, so I'm not going to really try defense was fine with or without him. But I think the offense had a different mood about him. Yeah, it's just that added. I, I don't know what the right way with the word. I'm looking for here think it's just changed the. Attitude, I think just put like the outed fire. I guess what I'm trying to momentum type of thing. Like as soon as he came in just the entire game switched up. I mean, he was driving down the field. He had no passing touchdowns or anything like that, but you could clearly tell, I'd say, and then we could both agree. He was the biggest reason why they ended up winning that game. But I would definitely say, let's wait until he has one full game, and that's going to be against the raiders in Oakland this week. So I mean, that's that's gonna be one. I wish I could actually make it out, but I would definitely put it out as like, let's hold off on him being the guy for now because again, he didn't start that game. He finished up the first half with like ten seconds with the two minute drill, and he has done a full start. So after I see him do one full start, then I'll start to say like, maybe I'll get on that wagon. But again, I think it takes more time. Yeah, personally, this e. I was. I was silly went on the Colin Kaepernick bandwagon when that happened, and I learned my lesson. So I've always been hesitant about quarterbacks. You start off hot like that. Roger royse Kim was trying to say he'd end up being one of the greatest forty-nine quarterbacks of all time. And I still think cap was a good quarterback. I think it's just a matter of he's not. He's got Knicks other guys better. I think I figured out in the depth. Yeah, plus, I mean, he didn't have the most talented of rosters towards the end of it. I mean that forty Niners team took a real. He kind of lost the title. Title game to Seattle because he threw that passed Crabtree when he was covered by Sherman. And if you watched that clip again, Bolden anquan Boldin Zwide open in the middle of the field. It's very frustrating to watch if you're a fan of football. Yeah. I don't really put a game on a player though, because there's other opportunities in games where player jobs at ball there does that change it up? So I think it's more so I would definitely say that poor decision causing the game. I, I wouldn't say it costs. But I'm saying that Colin Kaepernick I figured out quickly a little too quickly and didn't really adapt very well. Yeah. And I mean as far as these rookie other rookie quarterback's. I mean, I like Mayfield I'm curious to see how rose in does just mainly because of the fact that for some reason, Arizona just hasn't wanted to run the ball with David Johnson. I mean, I don't understand it, but I feel like if you want Rosen to succeed at assume Johnson the ball about twenty times at leisure and some check down passes to Johnson to make Johnson the face of your offense. You'll get a guy like the running back like David Johnson should be every rookie quarterback's best friend gave in if you're under pressure, whereas David Johnson have you should be your security blanket? Yeah, I'm not really. I gotta need to be throwing the ball. It's much like if you're not a corner also by quarterback, doesn't any of your own field used Carlos high security blanket basically, Dame Carlos hired. I mean, as soon as I came in, I feel like hide gotten much better throughout the gay. Yeah, I think he got the ball more. Yeah, and that's, that's anyone who I didn't think they. They didn't want to put too much pressure on Mayfield right away. Yeah, because you look at a guy like Josh Allen, I wasn't so sure we've only very impressed though. Yeah, you get that one game against Minnesota. I'm not sure if they're going to be able to sustain that throughout just because like Leshan McCoy is solid but not the same. It used to be. Yeah, plus two. They don't have receivers to where Josh Allen kind of has like that security blanket. I guess. You know what I'm saying? Like they're going to stack the box against the Shawn McCoy. So I don't think Allen could really look to McCoy as much as like a Baker made on at high. I don't even know who their one is one Benjamin, I mean, oh, he's and he's the. I don't see. I can seem as number two receiver. I don't seem number one. That's how I've always viewed him. I mean, I'd say I'd say he's a bust. There's mainly because he was in the first round, but I think, yeah, he's never really been fevers. Get too much like too much of that bus point when they're drafting first round because you're not you're not getting the ball always, and you're always going to be like. Kind of left out someplace. Yeah, you kind of look at it. Maybe this players should have been drafted later on, like Corey Coleman, I think is a guy who should have never been a first round pick. And then if you would have been dropped third or fourth round, he's probably still in the league given he's putting up number two receiver type numbers and all that Cevers picked in the first round have to be some special talents. I think usually receiver should be second Brown type of thing. I wouldn't because a wider see recant really care your team unless they're really special like rainy moss type of guy dropping them in the first round. You're gonna put a lot of pressure on them right away, and they're immediately going to be covered as soon as you pick them. Like you look all the quantum. He had draft in the first round, but he's the number three receiver on the Vikings. And I'd say, I'm not sure if there's other great receives all the Vikings. Yeah, but even before I'd say Phelan broke out and even, I mean it is tough, but I mean, even with treble hasn't really shown any explosives of being, yes, I am that first round pick number one receiver. Kelvin Johnson is obviously was the right choice for the second overall pick should have been. I pick debate which is true. But like rainy moss is one of those guys. The first round pick he can change up offense. There's not a lot of receivers in coming out of a draft that have changed in offense. Yeah, Sammy Watkins was supposed to be that guy didn't become that guy. I feel like people have just come accustomed to really has impressed, but he's not the number one guy into the perfect team for that first round pick because he just had another weapon with Julio exit thing too. It's like my thing with expectations, wide receivers. Okay. Calvin rarely was is the perfect mentioned for that. Everyone knew that Julio is the number what you bring in Ridley. I mean, I'd say even in his first year, people thought, okay, so news still going to be the number two. It really is going to be a guy who I mean in a few years eventually will take over that. Yeah, expectations I think were perfect for him. I went to any other team. He's the number one guy does not get. He does not get good season because he's going to be guarded as the number one guy. So you get the number one corner on that other team after you do you mentioned Sammy Watkins. I feel like a lot of what these Clemson receivers people always from Clemson, he should be solid. I've never really understood. I Clemson does have Saul receivers as far as college, but all these guys have never really come out in general. Yeah. Like there's only a handful of receivers. I would say first round picks that have really became Pro Bowl, old pro type guys. Look at it. I'd say the top five receivers are not Nettie orb. N Tonio Brown Hopkins Julio I'd say, oh, BJ and Michael, Thomas Micheal, Thomas, I think what's your first round pick? He was a second. Michael. Thomas was the second round pick and OBI was a, I. I him in Hooghly were I got Hopkins. I think he was a late round pick. And so as Brown, I mean. Yeah. A lot of top receivers in the league are guys who were really middle round picks and all that. I mean, it's tough to receiver early on in the because they're drafted. So like in the low rounds, they're not looked at like in tapes or defensive schemes when playing them. If you pick a guy first round on the offense aside, if he's not alignment, they're going to be looking at him in. The tapes is okay. There they pick this guy to think he's gonna help their offense. So they're gonna probably give trying to get in the ball a lot. Yeah. So I mean, that's all matter where you're drafting expectations and like Kelvin Benjamin for all the toys with drafts, and it's just too much expectation receivers more. So because any everyone's expecting that Joe draft is they, you're gonna come and become a goat's reality. That's not the case you gotta give them some time to marinate. Yeah, I tend to look at a player like if he's in your three or whatever and he's not playing well, chances are it's not going to be picked at works out if he is playing well, then it is a pick you hit on. But like I said. Fans, and I'd say it's more it's not like a right away because I say it's a results driven league, and there's a handful players ever drafted that are become instant like instant best players on the team. Like I would say that, like, I don't know. I don't remember the last guy that came out of the draft and became the guy and kept continuing to be guy. There be Cam Newton, but I can have struggles though. Yeah, you mentioned you can't remember the other day about Heisman. Quarterbacks hasn't winning now, Kevin, and I says. I would say like the ones in the seventies Roger Staubach and all those guys. But I would say the last fifteen years. The quarterback Heisman county? Yeah, Cam new and has been the only say one really turned out and yet he has a bad years. Yeah. Yeah. So there's always been big ifs, ands or buts. When it comes to the draft, there's never a guarantee if there ever was a guarantee. It's like painting was known as guarantee and he came out third, three and thirteen first year did look what a husband luck did not win a Heisman. That's kind of crazy when you think about it when it highs win either. But I mean Woodson was abused at defensive back that with Michigan luck. What might have been a product of that? No one watches the Pac twelve. It's really not fair. They only look like the because there's a lot of a lot of solid. Yes, player she is favored. Winning comes ranking. SEC buys is definitely real -absolutely like it's not even like l. remember, Allah will lose. Some games and yet they're still rank. Number one. It's like really, you're like, and then there's the Pac twelve teams that I think are sometimes better than these teams and they're still not ring to his high. Yeah. I guess this is a matter of they get to play early on the, you're not being ranked one or two? Yeah. You Mike. You like watching with the fourth fourth when they got picked fourth for the playoffs and they got how lucky. Yeah, they were great team, no doubt about it. But again, it's like one of those things where you're not gonna see Pac, twelve teams number one or any other thing. The last time to pack twelve team wasn't number one might have been like those old USC teams, Oregon, Oregon might remember when they went to the time. Yeah, but to that, you're? Yeah, they might have been one later on. Yeah, your organ organ teams. We know fourteen right. I think because that they lost Arizona when they were number two. So they might have been one going into that sees. Yeah, they might have been on a couple, but that's like the closer you'll see a pack to going. Definitely. As for Stanford, I don't see them going like, let's just go to college football real quick. Do you see a pack twelve Stanford going to into the playoffs this year? I know this twelve teams. They're good, but they tend to lose those late in the season type games. Like Washington always has that one blunder. Stanford always has a game where it's like they just don't show up and they end up losing news that one game in the Pac twelve, and they'll completely white. You you off in the playoff and talked about the playoffs. Do you think it should go from four to six, or do you think for it's a fair number? I think four is fine. I just think like maybe give those teams are five and six and opportunities where they can do. Some of those teams are just as good. Yeah, but I think if you do four if you move on to a unless you're going to give the top two teams of by. Yeah. Well, I guess they're still they're still in the process of learning how this whole college football playoff works. It's still in its infancy. I like four because makes you kind of like exclusive away and like these are the four best teams right here. And they're still doing it off bowl games. The playoff games are ballgame. So you cannot have like six, four, four, those games, bowl games being taking over about playoffs? Yeah. So I don't have a problem with point, but I and go into that. I don't see how peachable is up there with the Rose Bowl and playoff situation. I don't know why bowl is one of those four games like it's a. It's a. Gets a playoff game just about the money that's being brought in. I guess just when you think of great ballgames peachable is not one of them. Yeah. Yeah, but I think that all do it for us today. We'll be back tomorrow. We'll talk more about college football tomorrow with the games coming up after that, and we'll talk about the Thursday night matchup between the Vikings and the Rams.

Best Of LIVE from Miami (Emmitt Smith, Derrick Henry, Jerome Bettis, Tua Tagovailoa, Von Miller)

"The first thing I look at that the sun is making its way out this morning. It is a beautiful morning and we are back here. Live Miami beach getting in this right now. And it's Albert Wonderful One. We are fantastic. Let me backtrack keep trying to tell you guys is running back day you bring in a hall of Famer the Sleep Day every day in New York when you're very whatever happened to a great run back. Let's quickly start with what you brought here here. A Beautiful Gift for morning going up Dora. Johnson early gives this morning had a door and teamed up. Then we're headed to her for the last ten years so brought Chelsom Monier hill very good nice with moderate. A nice with a whole lot of different things you can match whereas it is headed are celebrating one hundred fifty years and they've done a great job in terms of distilling this ball right here many other bottle so off excited thank you I want to ask you who About the game. In this regard you obviously played in three super bowls. One free super walls. There was your first two super bowls you were to my the best player on the field you you were utterly dominant. Just saying that. Because I'm on the set. No it's true. I mean y you think acces anything the numbers back it up. Your Third Super Bowl was the only one where you weren't individually really dominant and I wonder how much of that was because to get their against the AFC championship game yet. I think it was thirty. Five for a buck fifty against Green Bay reason. I'm bringing coming up. Is We just so remote. Start on the ball damn near thirty times by look like the best player on the field on that game. How how do you feel after game with that type of workload and even even though you have the extra time to recover? How do you expect that to affect most this week? Well two things that Thurston Bowl we had a week in between so you had two weeks to prepare for the running game which we have so Pittsburgh knew what to do and how to stop the run game they prepare for. It consists leave the second part in terms of the number of Carey's in most case yes he was again tested he was nineteen years down the field so for him. It was like a trag me. I mean nobody really test them. He didn't really take a lot of shots. And so which which was a beautiful thing the score now so you could minus four touches. Four tackles on that so with him. I think he's fine having two weeks to recover. It's even better. But the worst part and he gave the defense according to two weeks to stop that wrong. We talk about you were able to do. Obviously he was dominant running football forty nine hundred nominate. But but just tell us how that affects defense. Because when I watch the game. I'm watching the Kansas City chiefs or other teams and I'm saying well can they stand up for four quarters. That's the big question in the way but to run the football demoralizes that defense. It's almost like Steph Cross headquarters shooting at three. There's nothing you can do is just talk about how the run game affects the the opposite side of the ball. The defense is beautiful thing about having a solid run game like the forty niners actually do have you can control the clock. You you control the clock. You keep Patrick. My home on the sideline you force them to make throws make foot pressure on office to score a lot of points. Because that's what they're accustomed to doing. So when you slow that down the IDA rhythm if you can keep them out of the rhythm lies we see them start games very slow you keep them out of the rhythm you can take advantage of. Oh things and one thing about cow Shanahan and their running game is Taylor Davis back in the day they ran that bogged down. Everybody's throat with all Hausa running back so before has got a very good chance. What what makes the chiefs the chiefs for a second so so dangerous? So dynamic is they've got two big offensive weapons and Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelsey whom Holmes is very comfortable. Go into you. You had that with you and Michael Irvin. How much easier is it when you have both weapons playing at the same time for an offense I think it? It creates a lot of matchup issues issues and achieve skin and go live young. Patrick mahomes along with Tara and Kelsey they have to other Sammy back there and charity got some other guys. Don't forget with those two running backs that they actually have everybody's slipping I mean. Everybody is all caught up in all. Facets these that you see it's those two running backs in the backfield hits and passes out of the backfield making guys miss one. Oh one here. And there that can make a difference for the chiefs and so their running game is going to be very very important this weekend as well as the forty niners right of the game. The Game I think for most people base level analysis is the chiefs passing attack against the niners. Pass rush so that that's a ostensibly removes the running backs from it. But when you think about how the chiefs offset the niners pass rush. It's screen game right right keeping a running back in for protection when you're playing a team with as good of a pass pass rush as the niners have what. Walk us through your job whether you're going out to receive a pass for whether you gotta deal with the blitzing linebacker and you're dealing with the bliss allowed magazine you face. We know what we have to do is mono mono we got to do that. We gotTA stop that. The second part is when I'm going out for a pass route. I gotTA help my my left tackle right attack because as you know those two hands are coming and they don't come hard so I would tell my love my love tackle set inside for some outside. Let me get a chip on his ribcage. So I can slow him Dow and give you a chance to get your hands back on them. That's the way to an anti used to work on the right side. Airwaves the same way if I'm going in between a lot of discriminates then it's the same way Lewis. Todd let me bump them a little bit. This is slow him down so I can add another one or two seconds for the quarterback. They have time to throw the ball downfield when most superbos off all three of them you carry the low. You've got devolved. Twenty five thirty times just handed off hand it off ended up but you were one man show. As far as running the football the forty niners honors are doing it more of a running back by committee. How much harder is if we're all those guys to try to get a rhythm at the game by by coming in and out of the game the way that they do one thing about his own offense when you have his own running game as I've seen in my past with Terrell Davis and you know all those guys that they had up and running for hundreds and thousands of yards is that you could do that? These guys are trained to Ronde Zone. Run and scheming. They'd do very job at doing. A lot of backs are very good at running zones ski I was never good running zone black zone run esteemed so but I was a downhill run and so but these guys are very skilled at doing it very patient. They set set it up whether you fall inside outside. I'll make you wrong no matter what you try to do. And that's what these guys are doing that. So I think for far advantage goes both of these these teams to run a ball fairly well and they got berry backs and I'm watching them. Learning a lot of bottom of seeing them do their thing. They've both both teams are very very skilled books. And we've been talking to so many players this week about the right things to do this week. especially if you're a player getting ready for the game we had some fun. We poke some fun at the forty niners honors. Who went out hard? I think Monday night or day nine listened. They said they didn't drink whatever they WANNA do. My question to you is just. What's the week like what would you? ooh You've been there a couple of times you've done a couple of times. What did you learn from the first time? The second time as a player getting ready for Sunday. Maybe that could help you go into. That was the absolute worse worse because anxiety and all those things not knowing what to do and how to prepare not knowing if you actually doing the right thing not because you try to treat it. That's normal year coach and say this is a normal no nothing normal body because most people planning for Super Bowl all excited and everything so not to mention you. Hear Miami Amy so you go out and party. I think he's just baked in this baked into the normal living. Your Third Super Bowl. You guys you guys had some fun the week leading up to it. What old Monday through Wednesday party hard enjoy talk about? Every week is a curve every day for the cowboys. One o'clock twelve or one o'clock and then as we got the Thursday Friday and got closer and closer to like eleven o'clock and so right now teams are starting to tighten up the reigns. Guys should probably stop drinking. START DRINKING A lot. More fluid star getting off. They feet starve. Relax a little bit more star zoning in which you need to do without doing it too soon because you thinking about the game too much it wears you out emmy whereas you are you gonNA come out on the football field before Kiko completely wore out just doing I just don't warm-ups yep kind of balance it all and you playing motivos. You understand that such a multiple super bowl. I gotTa have the experience. Experience of being layers understand how to deal with your coach for the first two of those super bowls. Our colleague at Fox obviously a couple of weeks ago really awesome moment live on the air finds out he gets long overdue into the hall of fame. I know you've talked about it.

I think it's Nick Chubb Christian McCaffrey or the three ground nominees unease. You want to make a little closing Bush for why it should be. You turn on the tape identity. I appreciate everybody's vote if they do both in week seventeen. You guys are fighting to get into the playoffs. You also nick shove already played had a good game where you will aware during that game how close you were to the rushing title and you guys end up blowing out the Texans so I wonder if at some point the game you can focus on all right. We got this win. Can I get the Russians. I would go along with it us. Getting into the playoffs team Mason alignment would have one. I was trying to track so when I got close they came up to me. You're listening to the yards away. Your discipline the yards away. So we're on a ladder drive when I got it. Oh I can't go just like you got one more play you coming out and then it may slay play three so both teams sheafs a niner's they don't have a back like that they just give the ball to us more running running back by committee. How much harder is at split carries? And you can't really get Florida game. I just think everybody is different and you know every system is different. How they run their? I think the forty niners do a great job of how they do this by committee. WHO's hot? You know you with that guy and I think they did a great job as far as them as a collective group running back by committee early in your career would worry correct and then Dion Lewis the I wanNA follow all of their second. Anyone that's seen your high school highlights. It's I some would say unfair. I would say borderline illegal. I wonder I pulled kids off the field you can go to the University of Alabama and you dominate college football yet for some reason despite being a first round pick you get to the NFL. And I feel like some people wonder. We'll how will it translate it. People didn't know will. What will he be at this level? I feel like you knew all along. If you became you may feature back you could have the type of run that you had not just the last quarter of this. You'RE GONNA go back twenty four games from when you took over for Dion. The was the game the Ninety Nine Yard Jacksonville game on national TV going into that chiefs game. It was as good of a twenty game stretch we've seen. Did you know that was in and you and what was your level of frustration early in your career not being able to exhibit. That consists something definitely. I knew at some point. You know you know. I decide to stay patient but I think all my career I think he's just a growing pains with experience and everybody career doesn't start the saying you know you'll love your career to start off. You know you just hit on also but I think it's a burst of this game. No you just keep keep pushing the fight in any of the things happen for you just the last three or four games of the season when you were just so featured and just so prominent in almost seem seem like every offensive play. You were out there just what. What was your body like gains a game? I felt like it looked like you were going to be in an ice bath for like sixty six hours after every leading up to every game. How hard was that on your body? I mean people you know look at it. You know you get beat up hit by constantly but actually I really wasn't that bad you know I might you know. Have a little mix bruises the day after but thing like two days. After I was I I was ready to go. So people look at it like Dang he got down like high school so I mean it wasn't wasn't that bad I feel great now during the season. So you light up the Patriots First Playoff Game You light up the Ravens in a second playoff game you run for one hundred and eighty eight yards against the chiefs in a regular season so you had a lot. The people picking the titans probably with upset. What was the difference in that playoff game where they held you to sixty nine yards was? What did they do? Defensively did a great job of front line now they they're very physical coming off the ball in the first half of moving the ball. No no pretty good in the second half of those guys to get the ball coming out of the half and they score before how and you know as offense offense you've got to be able to keep up with their offense and I think you know we kind of stalled on a couple of drives and they took advantage of it so all of us is very hard to stop did you. You guys get out into the game plan a little early though because you can get a stop on that first drive of the second half and even though you guys didn't got stopped you're down eleven with the. Where did you get out of the game plan into her? I don't think that we got a game plan too early. I think that we were just trying to see something. Call see if it works. You know and mm-hmm unfortunately you know just a little short like I said they're a great team. It'd be great job with the plan that they have put in and That's why we're GONNA BLOW RIGHT ON I. I do wonder we talked about it as maybe one of the plays of the playoffs. Each year on the sideline when it happens. What is going through your mind in the first half when you see? The Patrick Mahomes is play. Half you guys had dominated for the majority of and now you're going to go into halftime trailing this'll be the last month the AFC championship game. I was like good as advertised. The real deal the real deal. Great is good good good so just a just a player making the play. So and that's what we do. It's hard to imagine you're you're you're a free agent. After the season heavy heavy thought past this season have you. Have you closed the book on this season yet. Just think about what comes next for you where you WanNa be what you want to be doing taking it one game at a time this join. What's going on right now? And then when that time comes to you know get into all this stuff. This is on that but I'm I'm not trying to Russia one time. Do you feel like you may be reestablished that that you can win the with the running game in this league the value of it we. We've heard the last few two years that running back value going down running back by committee passing league. Do you think what you were able to do with the Ravens during the regular season that niners being in this super bowl all is speaking to the value. Still even in two thousand twenty of having either a monster running game or a monster running back individually just focus saw me just doing my job at the best of my ability having my team and then with me doing net. Is that what it looks like. And that's what you know people you know the thing that that it looks like deny appreciate that because you know that's me doing something for the whole rb committee and no for me doing that in the play offs and not people bringing up but bring that up as a topic you know. I definitely know appreciate it. You know for the whole running back from me because he tried to value when you ought Auburn Alabama. There's a picture been circulated forever new standing next marketing. Now wasn't hard one you've got to look at his son right. You're coming to watch him play with the point. With how hard was it when you got to say. I'm not a linebacker. I'm not a defense man. I'm running back in high school. A lot of a lot of colleges which are report me as a allowed back and I want to play runabout so when I got Obama I think they get to play because I graduated early so I got into spring so they got immense chance to know back in spring you know felt like he came out to join me so ever since then this lovely biggest similarity between saving and You know during the for a long time at a high level I mean this speaks for itself I think the thing about ray was very hands on like even in practice. He's gonNA drills with us. He's doing anything he can't possible to help us get better. And that's what all about him. He'll do anything he can to make sure that we are. We are at. It's up Wa game.

This show is good more gonNA handle yourself but I just want you to watch your back a little bit because he got right behind no not a ravens fan. No is this their precarious get uncomfortable. Window blind spot for diving. You're here with hurts. Tell us a little bit about what you're doing with a as a twenty year ago member of hurts. I'm excited to to help them. Kickoff this extra mile campaign that they have and it's really about celebrating the hurts. Gold plus reward members. who have really helped him become number one in the space that they're in so they're giving fifty winners? There's an opportunity to take a really decked-out bus today to to the big game and I think it's going to be AH extraordinary experience. And that's that's what hurts is trying to trying to create experiences for their war plus members that have made them the great company. The the Hour I. We're we're GonNa talk throughout this about your Super Bowl Championship but I wanna talk about the experience before the game it famously. Obviously it's your final game. It's in Detroit in your hometown euro. You've already built a hall of fame resume. You had all the opportunity in the world. I'm sure to go see people to you know really embrace the week in the moment and we talked about this will be will have different opinions. The advice you would have to the young guys on the chiefs in the niners who haven't been with Rupel and how to approach approach this week especially you guys were in Detroit's hometown for you but not exactly the bustling nightlife Miami Florida. How would you tell them they should approach the smell? I would tell them that what they need to make. Sure as they take care of the curfew issue out of the gate it makes. You're talking about because Kirghistan in a certain in time the key is you don't even want to put that to the test. We want everybody in thirty minutes before whatever that curfew is because what that does does is it eliminates any type of issue before this game. The last thing you want is for one of the guys to be laid the curfew and now the coach has to make the tough decision. We don't want any tough decisions. We want the decisions to be made on the football field before the game starts. He can't play the first half of the game or anything like that. So you want you want to alleviate all of those issues let guys know you have an opportunity to celebrate. You can party for the rest of if you live if you win this championship and I'm testament to that I get a chance to to have a ball because we took care of business and so once guys understand that it is a business trip and once you're done you'll have the rest of your life to celebrate it. Then they'll they'll take it in perspective and understand. You won your Super Bowl. The big bid only completed nine passes. How does the way the Jimmy and Kyle Shanahan handle in this? Offense reminds you of the way that Big Ben Plate in his early years. Yeah we were better football team and we knew that we were a really good team defensively and we knew we can run the football and so we said you know what we'll find array to manufacture manufacture yardage and big plays and those kind of things but it was about defense and running game. And and when you look at you know Kyle Shanahan. And what he's been been able to accomplish is not that they can't throw the football. It's just that they don't have to. And why would you WANNA throw it. If you don't have to throw it and they're going back to school football football saying you can't stop me running a ball then then that's all you're going to see and if you do stop them then they're able to to make the big play in the passing game. It's not that they can. They've done it all year. Long is just that. They're that good running the football they don't have to. Would you like to play Shanahan system. You know what we would have been nice. It would have been nice. But it's not really that downhill physical type of running. It would have been successful but I always like to. You did play a little smashmouth volume running but you gotta get devolved. Twenty with misery. Three headed monster. I was okay. There's no but hey you know what I will take the work low over longevity in a heartbeat because you want to impact the game. I wanted to impose my will on that defense and I can't do it if you give me twelve fifteen times but like you know running back. It was just a dare camera. You give him twenty five times. He is going to make a difference in the football game. And I I it'd be really interesting to see you with either of these teams. Like if you're on a chief you've seen where the defense has to worry so much about the pass and you're just being able to gas open holes or the zone blocking scheme in San Francisco when you guys won your Super Bowl. One one of the biggest plays you could argue and now big. Ben's we now know going to be a hall of Famer but maybe the prettiest pass thrown in that game quarterback was by hand. You almost almost expect these days. Some type of gadget play in the Super Bowl phillies special. Or otherwise how much leading up into the week. How many plays like that had you guys worked Don? Did you know you were going to go to that one or one like it or was that a break glass in case of emergency type situation. No we actually run that play in the AFC AFC championship game against Denver. So it wasn't a situation where we had done it we had done similar. Plays leading up to the Super Bowl. So this wasn't it wasn't anything new for us. We were comfortable doing. We had practiced all these plays last. You know five six seven weeks of the season so we were. We knew that that was part of. We're all fence. It wasn't we were just. We want to add this because this was something that we needed a new. We wanted to to really come at you. A lot of different ways and taking advantage of some of those plays. That was often ready. I guess all morning long right now though what he here here I got you. We've had a bevy of guests this morning. Nobody has cheered names until you walked onto this set. I kid you not. Let's start first by asking you. You're here on behalf of auto trader and Kelley Blue Book helping make the car buying process a little bit easier. Tell us a little bit about your partnership with them. Well you know I thought it was a no-brainer here on behalf of trader and Kelley Blue Book only because moving moving from Hawaii Taliban. Well you know the first thing you think of is Transportation Seattle. How am I going to get from point? A. To Point B.. I mean we looked online. You know with auto betrayed. We used auto trader. I mean it saves us a lot of time looking mean it eliminates everything from the car that I want and then you look at the price ranging as well. It was easy all we had to do is call call up the you know ask if we can take a look at the car. We went down there with the help of my grandparents as well. No we got the car that that I wanted so my college car to. Let's go to college career for a moment. There's never been one quite like it. You burst I onto the scene at halftime of championship. Game and lead one of the best second half comebacks. We'll ever see and unfortunately as quickly Leeann as brightly as it started it ended and in that moment I think all sports fans much less Alabama fans are Har- are in shock. I'm curious for you in the moment. What is going through your mind and maybe more importantly how are you doing as we sit here today? Yeah I mean I'm doing good. I'm fine you know up to this point I think Rehab is has been doing really great. We're on pace to the base for a full recovery. You know but I think in life you know. I'm grateful that I got to experience. You know both sides of the spectrum. I got to experience being at the top of of the mountain. You know I mean where I felt like you know everything was just there for me and then also being being at the peak of the valley or just being low you know. I just think it's good in a sense. Because that's that's that's just how life is you know you learn you know when you're successful and then you can also learn when I think you learn more when when you're not as successful you know you you don't take things for granted as much you understand maturity you know that comes with not winning losing so you win lose you got to move on you gotta go I it. It really is amazing. Though that you that their eighteen I think that even right here Miami that everybody thought Dumping Games to get you and now the question is you know what is by Kelley Blue Book. What is kind of your value? Give me your sense of because I heard your press conference when you announced that you were going pro and you know everybody thinks you're on the path to a full recovery Coventry. When will you know when we know that I that this is? It's going to be back to the tool we saw. When you were healthy? Good question I think up to this point. Want what I'm most worried about is getting to see T.. Scan done with our Mres on after three month mark so it wouldn't be this upcoming Monday. Okay but the following week and so once we kind of get a gauge on the healing process from there. Then I think that's when the doctors would be able to communicate with me and my family and tell us we're going to be good or she's here's things we we need to be cautious about stuff did did you. Did you really consider sitter going back. Because there was there was the time span there where there was a lot of talk. Hey he might think about coming back to Alabama and so many people say you gotta go you gotta go. I gotta go take us through. What were you were actually thinking at the time? Yeah I definitely was was thinking of coming back. It wasn't just me lips China Gate. You know the process to keep everyone out there. You know gassing it was really hard with my parents you know on taking the decision we had to. We sat down and talked to coach saving and we sat down and talked to people on the phone. You know. NFL GM's owners owners and then the other thing is we know we we had a lot of debris about you know so it wasn't an easy bosses too. There's this certain piece that comes with the knowledge once you've settled into the fact that everything happens for a reason and whatever's going to happen is going to happen whether or or not your placement in the draft is adjusted one way or another because of your injury and now recovering from. Do you have an idea of what you want to see happen of. Can you anticipate what you think is going to happen. I'm sure a lot of people are talking to you. Yeah I think in this kind of process it's hard with the injury I mean no one can really tell you know if it's going to heal correctly if it is in You you know. And that's why I think at the combine it. It's going to be really good. You know go over there and my main focus is to win when my my medical. That's that's pretty much it you know. Everyone else is going to be there to win the forty when the bench press you know my my main concern is to go over there you know and when my aches when my CDs can there you know and and if and when that happens and let's say when instead of if your table speak for itself and more people will start coming to my side of the table. which is you're the best player in the draft? You were I mean. Look at the numbers. You did it so you don't even have to look at thirty five touchdowns in three picks you were damn near as good the year before the year before that you came into the National Championship game and you won that title in your first big spot as a player. Let's just let's just speak into existence. The health healthy to a tongue of Iowa is what type of quarterback in the NFL. That's a good question you know for for me. It's hard for me to speak about mice so I mean all all I can say. Is You know whatever team decides to pick me now. They're going to get someone who's GonNa work hard. He's going to be a leader for the team and was going to hopefully put the team in the this situation to listen in the draft. I'm saying that you don't have to teams on regret it. I want to see you. I understand that humility ability. I feel like it comes from your family. Your Dad's here is there. You mentioned off the air. He's the one who turns you into a lefty. Can you tell us a little bit. Maybe you're a little more comfortable talking about your family that tight unit and how they helped turn you into the young the very impressive young man. That's your yeah you know my my parents and instead of teaching US growing up and talking to us about how important you know they they are to us. You know I got to see it firsthand. You know how how they were with their parents. You know no matter how old they got no war no matter how they are within their life whether they were teenagers or you know they're they're married. You know every every little decision that they've ever made they went to their parents for for you know guidance for Council and For me it was. It was something that I got to see firsthand and and really witness and realize and you know for me. I see that their parents you know they're hard and so for me growing up it. It was it was just easy in transition for me to look at my parents the way they looked at their parents and honor and respect my parents as well as anybody who's watched Leland Stitch ohata means family right right we learned about we learned about Ohana and knowing how important why used to you right and okay so just there's a couple of teams the could want your services won. The weather is and is similar to Hawaii like Miami and one is closer in proximity like the chargers uh-huh proximity or feel in weather. which if you had a choice would you prefer? I thought this was only GonNa ask you. Who's going to win the Super Bowl? But here's the question no order whatever team decides to pick me. That's sad too. You've got an exciting couple of months lays ahead for you so we thank you so much for hanging out with us this. It's morning spend. You'll be honest if you don't take nick on that corner for a long time. A huge huge win the heisman superstar quarterback in this year's draft one in next year. Strap right next week. Thank you so much Morning Down here in Miami. Hi It's Jamie. Warn me are just a few yards ought to be ready for suitable tremendous and it right now to be. Von Miller is here I apologize listen. Everyday's a blessing housing for me. Because I get to do the only thing I ever wanted to do but sitting on set right here with you could argue in the last twenty years defensive players who have won a super bowl before their team. It might just be two guys individually. And they're both right here. Von Want us to in San Antonio it was a nice catch wants to bp it is so nice. You join us. Yes I was GONNA say is we've had a ton of great gas. Yes unfortunately they sit next and I have never sat next on when it smells as good as you smell right now and anyone on this side you say. Let's won't you smell so good. It's the new vice ultra-smooth and what a transition you gotta be on the football field. But I'll be like like the key smooth and I don't like overpowering sense of deodorant body. Washington owes mice. Ultras move is for guys like me and I got an exit. I do yeah I do but that was that footscray sound like what's wrong James. You smell good too. Spies Nick this next to you the other day. You didn't tell tell me that. Von What's this week like for these guys man man. You don't actually. I call someone guys before refund came over here and I just remember it being you know I was at peace and I remember not being nervous and I remember just canyon with my family and just Taking advantage of the moment. Because you know there's a lot of players that that want to make it to the playoffs WanNa go to the Super Bowl but when you actually get there you got to take advantage of it guys. Don't really this opportunity. They were beaten. We had Emmett here. Who told us that the first time you've got to the superbowl there's a lot of partying? There was a lot of nerves. There was was a lot of the tried to make a regular week. They knew it wasn't a regular week. What some what does that feel like you make it to the Super Bowl you? You've passed the division vision around you. Pass the wildcard really in the clear and you have two weeks to prepare for your opponent and I just remember being at. I remember studying my God for two weeks straight and when we played I just. I didn't have any second guesses angel. Yeah my you know my things were that we didn't really want to change too much. What we would have did in the regular week where he gave us the freedom to basically do A? We wanted to do up until i Wednesday Thursday and then you know Thursday curfew and all that other stuff tough start it because you wanted to sit down. Focus in and get into what it is that you wanted to do and not make the situation you know so big that you let your nerves get you out of your game you know. And that's that's crazy because whenever I watched super bowl there's some guys that rise up and some guys they'd fall and this is all news and when you have peace and ready to go you can go out there and play and do what you need. We do von nobody and this is literal figurative has played Patrick Mahomes in the NFL. More than you guys talk about last year like it was his first year he played played. Week seventeen is rookie year against you guys and then I think is his first. Big Primetime moment. Was You almost sacking him and him him. Throwing the left handed pass policies bringing at what moment going against him. Was that first matchup second win when you realize. Oh this guy is going to be a problem problem in this division that to be the second game that we played I remember. We played them in two thousand seventeen and they took Alex Smith for a little bit of Patrick play and he's good but I was like man he's he hasn't really done it the second time that we played them on my yeah. He's he's lights out. He's wanting to best quarterbacks in the league he can make all the throws he can he can pass. You know he's calm he's collected out there and you really need. I WanNa ask you a question. I believe that Bosa has the potential to destroy. Oy chiefs game plan would do you think I like Nick. Boles versus the chiefs. He's a he's a rough and tough defensive long they got five actually. Have Five Defensive Suv guys that would take it in the first round going against the chiefs offense. They got a good office alone. But I'm going with the forty nine is he. He he thinks Eric Fisher is going. They get crushed in this game. You've gone again Eric Fisher dozens of times your thoughts. I'm not as strong as Nick Bozo. Nick Boza is going. He's GonNa Bring Power S. O.. Eric Fisher sweetening okay. Devours say is weakness. But that's what he struggles with caught a weakness this the super bowl. You know these guys. They don't have too many weaknesses. Is there a match up you looking forward to James Likes. The Fisher boasts a match. Is there one that you really looking forward to as a player watching thinks this weekend I want to see the forty niners defense versus the chiefs office. I don't want to see if they can hold up against the stuff that I I want to see if they can go at the point so I'm going the metro. ABC's Patrick Mahomes versus for United Defense and win. So there's a pass rusher when Mahomes does escape. What for you guys? What how do you? How do I ask this question? How do you manage wanting to get to him but also trying to stay in what your lanes are and what your assignment is? I've been around the League have been trying to figure it out. You Know Travis Kelsey and AH tyreek Hill they have such a great relationship with patching loans Patrick mahomes scrambling. Then he'll just hit Kelsey and stop. They got they got all the time of weapons. There's no thank you for listening to the first things first. PODCAST remember. Leave us a review and tell us what you think.

Each moment of the last three years or so, where we've seen tiger show a glimmer of of of his past coming back that there was a a pathway to restore health. And you know, we kind of use this deadbeat dad. Now, you know, you show up and he takes us out for ice cream and it would be like, oh my God. This is all good. It's all coming back and gone. Yeah. Well, he, no, he he stuck around this season and I have to tell you, I went to bed Saturday night, and I felt pretty confident that he was gonna win today. Yeah, just because of how relentless is focused themed to be like, you know, the expression on his face, the number of par saves. You know he was. He was executing a very high level and his accuracy off the tee in this particular. Later event was his very best of the entire season, like nearly something over seventy percent terms of fairways hitting regulation. The two things that jumped out to me one was just the body language, the chest puffed out the big confident smile. He seemed very alpha doggy. This was the tiger that I don't want to say we grew up with because we're in our late forties, but this was the tiger that we loved. This was the the MJ tiger. This was the LeBron against the Celtics tiger that just a charisma and a swagger and invincibility ability Batum. I think that was the most surprising thing to see that come back. But then there's this great moment. I think it was the eighteenth and he just crushed at last drive, just crushed it and him and ROY were walking, and he just had this look on his face. Like I'm back baby. I can't believe it. I never thought this happened on back. It really felt like the old tiger and it felt like the last nine years where. Were a dream slash nightmare. I know they weren't. I know they won't, but this was the tiger without we'd be getting it what how old is he? Now forty. Two forty two turns forty three in December. Well, that's a great segue. You and I have been having this ongoing conversation that I don't know if we should mention the third party in this dialogue or not. I don't wanna be name dropping if it's inappropriate named, but it isn't a, I won't say as initials even then, but but a a highly esteemed in the claim sports fan and writer join us and we were trying to rank this tiger comeback in the annals of all comeback, where does this one rank because of the combination for tiger of him being the absolute very best historical figure in his sport. Yeah, Koo experience and it's all extremely well documented. A combination of both. You know cycle. Issues, enormous physical issues, potential, you know, drug dependency kinds of issues, not potentially be potential. He had drug dependency issues. He admitted it. He went on the record. I'm addicted stuff and I need to not do them any more at breakpoint. You're right. And and yet here he is all the way back and it's not just that he went and one, you know, no offense to any of the other regulatory stuff he took. He was this is the top thirty over the course of two thousand eighteen thirty best players over the course of this year. And he just went out and put it down on him. I would say. So when we're talking about, I was saying, I think the Ben Ben Hogan car accident is still number one. He broke his back and he had a car accident would back when they had cars that I don't think you wearing seatbelts and you probably just go right through the front of the car and nobody thought he was going to play again. And then he played again in succeeded. That's way up there. I think the couple readers pointed this out Miralem you come back from Hodgkin's winning the scoring Seattle, that was amazing. Yeah, I would. I would add, you know, it wasn't an injury, but just Ali have in the four and a half year layoff. Coming back to his sport where you have to be quick and fast, not not kind of the same overcome in the ads, but just it's not a sport where you want to have a layoff and then not that well, and then you have to go to like the Shaun Livingston blowing out his knee and never thinking anyone come back and Grant Hill, but that those are all like you. We come up with a million of those to come back. That's right to, for you know, a pantheon type guy to have a career hurricane basically, and come back from it just into Mike was going to happen. And even, you know, there was maybe it was a year ago he did or year and a half ago. He did that long interview with somebody weird. It was like a golf magazine or member that or it was time magazine or something. It was something on you remember it and we were like, why did he pick that? And he just kinda seemed so sad and pathetic in it. You know, in a ROY. Oh yeah. The Bagger Orphee didn't help either, but it just it just seem like like he hated himself almost. I want to speak for him, but it really seemed like he was as disappointed in himself in the way, things that had gone. He was more disappointed than all of us, so too. I can't imagine what that was like for him today. Not just being able to get his Mojo back in the gallery and people chaining tiger. And this was a guy that you know really hit rock bottom in two thousand ten and then kept hitting rock bottom. But two thousand ten punchline joke, late night, jokes, all the conspiracy stuff about what really happened that night and the embarrassing press conference. And you know is just ios expected the comeback to happen, but not the way it did today. This was the best version of it unless it had happened at the master's. Yeah, I say two thousand ten to two thousand seventeen. He drove his car off the road. Yeah, and he was. Intoxicated. I mean, no know alcohol, but you know, he was under the influence of drugs. He was lucky to survive that car accident. I mean, who knows how fast he was going or anything things and and and properly was put under arrest for that. He's a father of two young children. I was mad at him last summer when when that whole thing went down and you know to to to sit here today and have the conversation that we're having part of the thing that I think is gonna be incredible over the next couple of days is the outpouring. I mean, we've seen it already in the social media and the television and everything. There was just he. He has become an incredibly sympathetic figure. I'd be interested in somebody like like coaster men, you know, to hear his kind of take on how it is that that the he, the redemption story, where it came from. I mean, part of it for sure has to do with like the American comeback. We always love and underdog, and somehow along the way tiger became an underdog and. Then we then we don't need postman. People love comebacks to me. This is this is no different than Ben Affleck. Not not. Tiger is better his sport than Ben Affleck was in his field, but same kind of McCain's, right. Come back in unpacking the first time. This is we haven't even had the second half comeback yet, but he has yearly his jaylo all that stuff and just hits rock bottom by two thousand seven, two thousand eight. And then has this five-year comeback leading to win in the Oscar and becoming Batman. But he hit a point where he went from punching bag to people rooting for him, and that's that's an American story. We build stars to break them down and then build them back up. Again. That's what we do. The tiger thing I think has a different element to it because golf was just never the same since he disappeared in when they were talking about this year at the open, it was a ten year anniversary of whom went in the US open and the tornado c. l.. L. ten years is a long time. I mean, even they said today was eighteen hundred and seventy six days since the last time he wanted tournament. And I was like, I was I was trying to account into my head how long ago was say. August two thousand thirteen. And I'm thinking like August two thousand thirteen. Okay. I grant lands two years old. My my son is is not even six yet, and we're worried that like he might need a helmet or something. It's just insane. Just the all the ways your life changes over the course of five years and and and now he's back and now now he's back even better at the perfect time for him to be backed because we arrive or cut next week. And then we have this crazy tour schedule next year where it goes. Basically April May June July, the four majors peaking keep house if he can keep this going for eight, nine more months. I forgot to mention the Mickelson thing on thanksgiving, but all you needs to stay hot for another year and just more good things they're going to happen. So given the counter, why can't that happen? No, the only reason it couldn't happen is because of the health and but he looks incredible. I mean, he looks. Thing that me that that over the last like two months as you sort of watch them on television, that's striking is how skinny is. And he said today that he can't run anymore. So I just I don't know what he's doing in terms of this fair a regimental house. So no, no, no, no, no, no. Guard up careful, please careful. This is going to be a tiger is on the throne today, and I'm on my knees. I mean, you're not going to hear me say anything bad. I'm genuflecting in front of the goat. That's what that's what I'm about to do. I, I'm just saying, you know, if you're trying to anticipate how his health might go over the next handful a month, like we had lots and lots of validation that that he can survive the these rounds under a whole variety of condition. You don't see him wincing anymore. You see him taking pretty aggressive swings all the way through the the entirety of of his, you know, four rounds in event and that the health is the thing that I would be worried about. And he had a really smart approach game plan. His schedule this season. I hope he replicates that. I hope everybody you know in his team. And then as walk of life gives him the good advice and good counsel, and maybe he'll be making his own decisions about this that you know, like an eighteen event kind of schedule a really good number of events. I hope nobody gets crazy and and thinks the ought to be flying off to Dubai and the. I think he's he's not doing that anymore. There's there's too much more money at stake for him when he's succeeding on the PGA tour, you know, like you gotta pass paycheck because I'm sure he's gonna get more sponsors over the next couple of weeks and all that stuff. It's going to be insane. I'm interested in seeing what the overnight number I wanna wake up tomorrow morning and see how like, you know, at five o'clock yet Sunday, what number NBC got for that broadcast. One of the things I just do a quick shot out NBC and its partners on this particular broadcast coke in the Southern Company had this deal where for this tournament they show the final nine holes without commercial what grit, what great luck with it for today to be watching Tigers back-nine without commercial Oli. He will also is one of the cooler courses. I love that whole. I think it's the, what's the whole that is basically the three story. Building around the green. Is that seventeen? That's? That's fifteen. It's a par three. It's heart of the mother. I've been lucky enough to play down there a few times. It's a very cool course. It's the court, of course that that Bobby Jones kinda grew up playing all his history through it. Super cool. Little building. I have one more theory on tiger, and this is something I think I've talked about on the podcast before. I have a lot of thoughts on bad backs because I had a bad back and I had a herniated disk and I have like a little compress fracture and all that stuff somewhere in there. And what you learn as you research backs. I ended up not getting the surgery, no four. I think tiger did get the surgery, but where you learn about backs, the more you learn is that a lot of people have messed up backs to varying degrees and the things that can tip it are, you know, poor habits, like if you're sitting at your desk do too long and where you're not stretching or stuff like that, but then the bigger one is stress and there's a book that Dr John Sarno road that Howard Stern actually I found out about it from the Howard Stern show. 'cause stern was a big fan of this book and it was all about like how, how much of aback issue like was mental and stress and. And if you're not in a happy place and you have all these things that are piling up, that's kind of the tipping point for your back sometimes. And that's what happened to me. I was at Jimmy Kimmel show, and I was also trying to write my column. We just moved to LA. My wife had a made a lot of friends yet. I had all these things piling up, and of course my back goes out and you'd think, well, he's never in nine and a plane basketball. My forties like went back was fine. I am convinced it was stress and I look at the tiger situation and I know he's structurally messed up and whatever. But I also think like when you're happier, your body feels better in you watch him like with the swagger and stuff, and it's like his backs, probably the same. It was last year. He's just feels better. And he, you know, he's moving better and when you don't have that constant anchor over you, maybe maybe that's part of this. I don't know. Just theory. No, I, I like it. I mean, you literally carry the weight of the world on your shoulders and on your back. I totally get that. Not even career stuff. It's also like I, he has an ex wife and she probably isn't a huge fan has and he'd broke up with his girlfriend a year ago and his kids probably are old enough now that they can Google him and God knows what kinda shit that guy is is running through his brain. I'm sure it affected him. Oh, undoubtedly the one intervening event that the Kurt for him physically as it relates to the back is huge surgery yet, and it seems like he finally got like a diagnosis that that made the most sense for him and get put him in the best division. And then the last time you and I talked about this last couple of weeks about tiger one of the things that that seemed to be going on over the course of the season with him, sorta rediscovering his physical capacity. What can I do? I'm inside kind of a new body here. How how far down can I push the pedal? And you know, what am I sort of capable of? It's partly why I think. Over the course of the season that we talked about this a little bit. He seemed to be printing pretty conservative game. If he was, you know, Enzi he may. You wanted to make cuts so he could play four around in each of the events that the end, the only missed two cuts the whole season. And you know, it's, it's clear that that over the course of the season with two day is the culmination that getting in those reps was crucial and him kind of rediscovering what he was all about was crucial and him getting comfortable. Again, inning driver off t was crucial because he kicked everybody's ass in that regard. He was awesome off the tee, and then he putted better than everybody with his old trustees guy to Cameron as majors all that thing. He was doing the follow the putt to the green a couple of times today, which I loved here, the fusion surgery. Some people have had that and it hasn't gotten better and other people have it and it does get better. I also think we should mention. And if you read the book that came out last. Year or earlier this year Batum he's got an incredible pain tolerance. So he might not even be out of the woods. I think his back was obviously so bad. He, you know, earlier that he couldn't even he couldn't overcome up this guy. I don't need to go through all their injuries, his head, but he's his knee was deteriorating for, you know, the first fifteen years of his career and that that's the to me that's more shocking than the back. Because when you read about the stuff that's happened is neither of the state that is knees in that he shouldn't be able to come back from the back thing. I, I can see coming and go and implies and you have the surgery and you have less stressed in your life, but your knees kind of once it goes, it goes, there's no coming back from it and that you never hear about it. Does look like we he's walking slightly affected. I don't know whether it's the back or or the knee, but. Yeah, that's right. I, I don't care. I just want him healthy. 'cause listen to this. We talked a little bit about what the future hold. Obviously I, this was yesterday he was installed as the favorite to win the masters there. That's crazy. And that's, you know, one of the things you and I observed. I wonder we for one or two. Each other is Gusta too hard for tiger it. They have been with the game that he showed up with in April the first week of April two thousand eighteen. But you know if he's in in anywhere near the condition that he's in right now with the kind of accuracy and the confidence that he has, I think he'll be up to the challenge, but listen to where the next two majors are active, that the PGA championship is competed in may in nineteen. They're going to best page New York. New York's Beth. You think that that crowd, we'll have some tiger low. We'll be prepared to go crazy for tiger if there's any possibility at all and then and then it goes from there. They're the US open next year, Applebee's. All the history there. I mean, it's really time for us to start thinking about and it's just 'cause I'm feeling greedy in the moment. We had all, you know, five years percents. So last win on tour next year. It'll be eleven years since his last major win a, why can't we start talking about how many more majors he has been. Well, and then you left out the the British Open now called the open championship, whatever the fuck, they decided that's an Ireland. I know you know, you know who loves tiger a bunch of drunk Irish people. He's fine. Stop giving Tigers so much crap. I can make these jokes twenty five percent Irish. They'll be rooting for him was terrible. That was like that sound like Bano crossed with the the Mike. Myers is dad. And so married American expert or. Yes. So listen. He's the majors is the next piece of this. This was great. This was awesome is so nice to have him back, but now that he's got the tiger tiger swagger back now that he's got something going on. Now. Now we're talking now. He needs a major and we were there at the masters and we, we were there for at least the first day, but then watched on TV and he could never. It always felt like he was like one whole away from getting a going, and it was just like, oh, that didn't go in or that Dr hit. He didn't have the short game, his wedges betrayed him, but it was so early and then he was he lingered, though, and then it got to the to the US open and you know he, he was lingering and you're calling it. You're saying on the podcast all year you were talking about like daily fantasy and gambling stuff and your leg. I think Tigers in the mix here and I went from thinking like, oh my God, you just in the bag for tiger to you. Array Tigers played tiger played really well for you know, five, six months there. He was lingering and he was around and he was in the mix and he was implying that many tournaments. Well, it got real on that Sunday at the open championship when he was a he Alba lead standing on the t the eleventh hole. Yeah, he was there. Are you okay with. With Justin Rose one in the FedEx, whatever the fuck it's called. Yes, the PGA tour really appreciate you calling it that FedEx, wherever the fuck it is, that's the name of the trophy. It's the FedEx w t.f. Yes, it is there. There you go. You just gave it. It's been in search of a brand identity that among the many talents because that's still can you name the last five, winners of it going back to two thousand thirteen. I can name like a handful of them. 'cause I know like Rory wanted. You know, it's Bill Haas back into it. You know, people remember majors, well, you know, who remembers the players because they get a ten million dollar check. Remember that part they remember can I should check? Be great idea isn't isn't crazy. They try and create a system by which to roared guys have been consistent over the entire season. And and you know, they've tried to come up with a way to, you know, give a little bit of extra recognition for players that you know have done, particularly well, you're you. You end up in the top thirty. And then when you know we have these points and you can work your way into possibly winning the ten million dollar check if you win the tournament. I like a name way off of the the the board coming into yesterday. Billy horseshoe shot a great Brown today, sixty five, I think. And you know, all of a sudden he had a chance to win the ten million bucks and he's wanted before, but you know, it it it is. It's a, they're trying to find that balance between on the one hand, recognizing great. Performance over the course of the season and all the other hand, letting the guy that wins the tournament have a great chance of winning the ten billion bucks. It's also a huge purse though for this thing, I think I won almost two million bucks today maybe over two million bucks. FedEx Cup, the ten million dollar check. Yeah, I wouldn't even the FedEx, ten million dollar check. That's what I would name it. Okay. The race of the Czech. You don't like that idea. This fine. That's it should say, oh, he's leading the FedEx, ten million dollar check. They should just remind everybody that ten million dollars at stake. Not that I really thought somebody wrote the tweet at a that, that it's some point. They need to just show with a wheelbarrow, filled up with with hundred. I needed to let the people see. Yeah, she'll be like is a poker. They should just had ten million dollars in bags rate. What a great idea. Yeah. Next year its fifteen million percent just means a bigger wheelbarrow has we're going to the masters and we're going to the US open and it's gonna be fucking awesome. I'm just telling. I haven't even I haven't even told Callaway at, I'm not positive. We even have a whole plan, but we're going Calloway. You're sending us, we love you. I'm still in in refractory period. I, I'm still recovering over here. I don't be. I have to get it all worked up again. You really this is a very exciting decks year. We have in front of us. Let's knock on wood, none myself in the head right now. We need all the forces to to come together because this this moment where the tiger is at the peak of his powers and he's showing all the young guns, what it's like alongside tiger. You see Rory today by the way used to see, you know, he I, he was in high school and tiger was the height of his powers. He shot seventy four today alongside the goat. That's when during MJ's wizards run, that was actually a little more entertaining than I think people remember. But on the days MJ had a going, he melted ever in the crowd and everyone. The court era soak say, kind of be on the court as m was feeling it and tiger felted for the weekend. All right. We gotta go. We gotta get gotta, get to the football, maybe I'll let you back on. Maybe I'll let you back on Friday ruin this week. You're mush. Poured out. It'll be a two in one week this to people know. All I did was take your pick from probably I listen to your podcast. I gave him back out his mind. I thought that would be funny shit that. Right house shack house shakeouts house. The carbs subscribe about this shack, the shock. Ryder Cup preview show Tuesday into Shackelford shack is in Paris as we speak. So we're gonna be. We're gonna talk about now the I don't know about the US fortunes. I'm looking for some value. I want to bet on something. The bottom four guys in this event at east lake. We're, we're all American guys on the Ryder Cup, but I guess it doesn't matter. I look forward to wagering on whatever you tell me too because you've been red hot. This whole season house, Stockton. Talk to you. Before we get to Sal, you've heard me talk me and he's a million times why am actually so obsessed with them? Simple. When I wake up in the morning, all groggy actually get excited to go to my underwear draw in pick out which undies I wanna wear for the day. I actually think about the colors, the prince, there's these purple ones that remind me the Lakers that elect to wear Sunday when an omen to get nice and sweaty. I can sweat on the purple ones. I wear them every day. People make fun of me and my family. Basically, everyone is like, what would I do? Without me undies day offer a one hundred percent satisfaction guarantee if you're not into them, you can send them back for full refund. Are you ready? The Matric guess what you're in luck Mehan is just launched a brand new membership that led you gain access to exclusive prints. Take advantage of special member pricing in level up your top drawer with new Indies undies every each month to get your fifteen percent off your first pair, free shipping a one hundred percent satisfaction guarantee and something. Common in common with being because all I do is where mandates mandates dot com slash BS that is beyond as dot com slash b. s. all right, the cause is on the line. All right on the line usually leads off this first of the week podcast, but Tiger Woods, you know, he and one in five years we had to talk about tagger. I now he's here. Now you can gloat about the fall of the patriots dynasty. You did your best cousin sow to jinx it all week. They're gonna win. You made a one, your best bads. Let's store them in every tease. There was a voice crying in the wilderness, which was be says, I don't know. This game makes me a little nervous there. No, you're fine. The patriots by seventeen. I know you enjoyed this tonight, Sal. I know you did don't lie to me. Well, I, I don't know how much someone who lost on has a thousands of dollars on the patriots today could enjoy it, but I, you know, I didn't enjoy it. What do you mean? Did I enjoy everything? And then I tied it to the patriots tonight and. Oh, no, you guys went down in flames? Yeah, I had everything tied to the patriots. The night I bought everything you were talking about and by the way I have been put up by a lot of people to give you a lot of. Shit for this, this loss, especially this laws because you've been going off on that Patricia for months, and I bought into it and I just figured that Bella check is gonna. You know, he was embarrassed in the Super Bowl was embarrassed last week against the Jaguars. They they got their come up. Then I figure one of these times he's gonna wanna step it up and wasn't tonight though. I'm not even sure. Matt, Patricia. Did that much if anything like I couldn't believe they didn't go for it on fourth and inches. I couldn't believe they were the on the first drive. I couldn't believe that there were only obtained at halftime, and it had all the makings of after the terrible Stafford interception and all the makings of the patriots comeback. Then Stafford made that one nice throw on that third down that cons pointed Atta when read over the guy's head, it was perfect. And then that was it. The patriots never did anything. Again, I was. I was tweeting about it during the game and try not to have a freak out. It's really alarming. How few kind of impact is the pets have now where you know you watch like we would co -nificant I watch Rams chargers today. The Rams there's like twenty guys like, oh, that guy, oh, there's that guy, and he just they've stars all over the place. And then you watch this Pat steam and it's like, where are the stars we're, where are they is? Do we have anybody? It just seems like. They're week. So I think I don't wanna panic about the pats since September, but I gotta admit, I'm a little panicked. I don't I from talent standpoint. This looks to be their weakest rosters since oh, six really does well defensively. If you look at pro football, focus, football focus like there was supposed to be there was supposed to be at least on par or in the top ten. I don't know what happened and also by the way they gave up thirteen points at half. I know they weren't putting any pressure on staffer, but thirteen points at half. You should have more than three. It should be close in that, especially since it's been since the jets ran for one sixty nine on them and then braid and the and the Niners ran. I don't know. I think one eighty five or something total against them. Last week you should have been able to run your offense. The way you wanted it to the problem is I think emits Dion Lewis a lot more than you thought you would write like what funds a player have you missed more than the on Lewis in the last few years. There's many excuses to be thrown around for how bad the pats of look through the first three weeks. I, I'm stunned by how ineffective Sony Michelle is. I don't know if you hurt. I don't know if they missed on the pick. I don't know what happened, but they trade Brandin cooks for him. That was that was basically the trade and they have no deep threat anymore. Brandin cooks as look pretty good on the Rams. I gotta say they didn't wanna pay Brandin cooks. They didn't wanna pay. Dan Lewis. They didn't wanna pay Danny amendola in now you have all these guys in a situation when you're downtown. That just haven't been in that situation before they thought I, that Michelle was particularly bad tonight and there there was one time he kinda screwed up or screen pass with Brady and Brady lake that stared him and that you know the announcers, let it go. I was surprised that impact it up, but it just he doesn't seem comfortable. We, especially when you're watching the rookie and the lions who look so much better than them who has picked up the no the the running back Johnson. Oh Johnson. Yeah. Yeah. And then you drop them in like four league that there is a lot of fantasy drops like Jordy Nelson was another one. These guys got jettison to an being great, but but I think they thought Sony Michelle was going to be the better version of Dan Lewis so far he's been worse. The other receivers don't get open. You know, Collins was good about pointing all the coverage sacks. They don't have a left tackle that I trust and then on defense, just nine allowed to impact is anymore. The defense didn't kill them today, but it it certainly didn't help that the lions were on the field basically the whole game. And, and then you know last but not least the story came out about grog that they that they tried to trade him in April, threatened to retire, whatever Schefter reported. Bit. That makes me nervous because ballot check has been the master of cutting the cord a year or two years too early over a year or two years too late and few is gonna cut the cord with gronkowski in April and the deal fell through for whatever reason. Then he's then he saw something and gronk certainly has not been an impact either. His first week sees getting double teamed the LA, but it's hard to tell what's going on with chronic, but that story cannot come out because he's like a child and that's like. Hey, you're adopted and not waiting for the right age. Age fifteen yet or when everyone's because who knows what he's going to do with that information and I, but I don't understand the numbers of it. I do see on the replays and he's double covered and he's getting jammed at the line. But then like door said, is double cover to one of these guys has to be open. This doesn't make any sense at all that nobody's open and maybe it'll be easier when Josh Gordon's spreads the field next week. I guess he's coming back and then Elman in two weeks, but Brady does have that Danny Glover. I'm getting too old for this shit look more more often than not in the last couple of weeks. I think. Swear never to judge really judge a football team that we think has a chance to do anything until November. With all that said, it just looks like from town standpoint. This is a pretty weak team now. No, six. They were pretty weak on talent that year two, they more than the do this year. But that team literally almost made the Super Bowl. So the there's a little bit of a trust, the infrastructure piece of that this they add say, they're also in a terrible division. Miami is three, you know, I don't know how they're three now. They've certainly they played Tennessee that weird hurricane game. They played the jets. And then today they played Gruden in the raiders. So we were saying before the year, we did our podcast and we're trying to figure out who is going to be the how the hell they are four, no team. And this was one of the candidates we looked at their schedule like, wow, that is a really easy first couple of weeks for they get to that patriot. Yeah. I think Miami every year every year they come back to buy me in the ass. And then of course this year they're good or whatever. The plug that apps they look a little faster than they typically do. This Albert Wilson Kiko Alonzo and is is winding it up. They do look faster. They're gelling I think tannehill part, but I think for pay from the patriots damn point you, you can win ten, eleven twelve game still, but what are you going to do against the chiefs? Not the same thing is you got to ultimately you have to have a PF dad. That one thing you really good at, you know, and last year at least the patriots, you knew that they could go to minute and that he could move the ball anybody no matter what the situation was. Now in dollas gone Dion. Lewis has gone. Gronk just isn't the same guy. I mean, I I still think he's a very good tight end, but man go back and watch gronk from two thousand ten, two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. The guy was recognition. He's not a recognition anywhere. He's dragging method. For sure. Lord I picked up fits Fitzpatrick because I have four QB's. That's a talk about fantasy league this. I swear the store have a point, but I have Jared Goff, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Philip rivers, and Tom Brady, and I ended up starting Tom Brady who had like eight points ahead on like I'd like twenty nine, but you know, even going into this game on like, although we'll be fine, he'll figure it out. He'll spread it around and then you're watching the game in. It's like, man who's who's gonna throw like door set just doesn't get open. And I think one of the things that happen unfortunately for for pats fans, nobody feels bad for us. We wouldn't five Super Bowls, but the Houston game really threw people off the scent. I think I left that he used to gape thinking, oh man, we're this defense is much better than last year. And this door sets gonna be. He's he's like a faster diem branch, and sure it turns out Houston is atrocious and Chamot's is not found a split. At all. This is now. Coached and JJ watt out. I'm not sure he's an impact guy anymore and cloudy today. But in three sounds day. That defense, but that I didn't see the game. He had three sacks. JJ I take it back. They had four overall, but no, he lie was twenty five or twenty nine today and that this key, he connected with everybody with no name receivers. You've never ever ever heard of. You wouldn't pick up in six weeks and fantasy. Yeah, that's there's nothing special about that team anymore. Texans team. I'm gonna tell you. I didn't see that game when we get to parent corner much later as podcasts. Give me your top three in the AFC right now are the Pat still in your top three. Yeah, I'm gonna keep them in my top three d. AFC north hasn't sorted itself out. In fact, we think we cornered the market Cincinnati in Cleveland, winning the north. We'll see the Jaguars. We made a bet this morning that the Jaguars the Rams. And then the pats minus one, oh nine, the patch win. The Jags took a shit against Tennessee. I didn't see that game either. Nine, six, fine. It just like they kept waiting. I dunno Gabbard out. You don't even know who you're rooting for anymore to quarterback for Tennessee. If you're the other team, you know and they marry Oded in mariota runs for as many yards and he running back, they have and throw for touchdown. He has a typical mariota game and the Jackson score. I mean, these teams get up for the patriots and nobody else seems kudos to the titans to in one there on the quarterback. They've gotten like goose egg from that position. They certainly have, I would say a top five or six quarterback crew right now. I mean, it really all starts and ends with Trubisky. We'll get them. We'll talk about the bears man, poor, the bears fans. I, it's like it's bad enough. They traded up for Trubisky with. They probably didn't have to, but then Mahomes goes, ten picks later. And he's like the messiah. Best quarterback I've ever seen in my life. It's like he's like, Aaron Rodgers crossed with Johnny Manziel in college crossed with nine other Brett farve ahead. What the hell is going on smart and he whips around in the pocket, and then the screen will find Kelsey, like on the lateral screen, like just the new plays every week. It's incredible at this guy and they get ahead and it seems like that team has to get ahead to keep these defense breaks down eventually. And we know Andy Reid breaks down in the last two minutes. So yeah, he could put up big numbers. They're gonna go far for shit. That game had all the makings and then tragically Jimmy g. goes down torn ACO. I think if if we had done a captain Morgan's make believe casino for who gets hurt in two thousand eighteen I Tom Brady or or Garoppolo I think Brady would have been like a minus five hundred favor, right, right. Which is why I thought the patriots. I was even more confident in the bed tonight because I thought they had the mo- Joe's like, well, this is bad thing with Jimmy g. but PAT's went again. Brady's still chug along Jimmy's gone. Yeah. So Lear thing to like he posted his foot. He was out of bounds and then got hit. It was very strange. There was the Rams were minus six fifty this morning to win the NFC west, and we threw them in parlay with the pats Jags and we did another one with the pats and the Browns. Meanwhile, the Rams minus six fifty will probably never come along again in our lifetime as for easier to. It's like that's the equivalent of having the two thousand seven pats after like four weeks in the AFC east or something, the Rams were already going to run away with that division. And then Jimmy g. gets hurt, Arizona's is a disaster. They Sam, Bradford with five minutes left to play, Josh Rosen, and it was basically the opposite of what happened with Baker Mayfield on Thursday night, they're terrible. Seattle looks like they're just trying to get through the leg. Earl, Thomas is making game deciding turnovers, like the just jogging around like he can't wait to get. Traded like that team is just a complete mess. The Rams might add Owen at home and then they'll the, they won't surprise to many teams. This year we have the Rams versus everyone else in that division. I'll give you Rams plus, too. You get all the other teams they're win totals can buy who'd you take? Okay, Arizona, three and thirteen. All seven to nine and way. Uh-huh. Francisco. I mean, do they do those three add up to fourteen wins fourteen to? Well, that's that's pretty close, right? The Rams the Rams are gonna go fourteen in two or fifteen and one unless they just have injury or something that team don't believe in third might be better than anything Zona hat. I don't. You know who I believe in tyrod Taylor. I think somebody should trade for him because he's never gonna play again in Cleveland. He should get traded and and Mike Glennon either should start over Mitch Trubisky or get traded or tyrod Taylor should get traded. The bears, I don't know what the bears do at your Bisky. 'cause I think the bears. If you remove everybody else, but the quarter, if you remove the quarterback and just you're talking everybody else, I think they have one like the six best rosters in the league. I'm like really impressed by how much talent they have. They have so much more talent than the patriots do. And then she Bisky is like the great equalizer. It's unbelievable. Well, I think Khalil Mack. I don't know what he's planning on getting Khalil Mack for Christmas, but that guy saved his life. I mean, he's going to make turnovers. He's going to put them in position. They're gonna. They're gonna have good field position all the time. Mitch. Trubisky is very lucky to be on that team for young quarterback. That's the best that's the ba-. I mean, Goth, who has it better? Trubisky or Goss in terms of what was their psoriasis makes plays like was really good today, and that chargers game that charges. I'm not comparing their town. Being young guys get stuck with, you know, they get new Garoppolo doesn't have a lot of playmakers braid is coming on, I guess, but. But yeah, typically you don't get you. Don't get that kind of juice around you. I've watched. I think I've watched all three bears games. It's shocking how many guys are open. It's shocking how good their running backs are. Considering that everybody knows their quarterback basically can't throw the ball straight. I mean, the thing with him is as long as it happens within the first two and a half seconds, he's fine. So if he drops back to pass and he's immediately thrown somebody. That's great. As soon as something breaks down or gets chaotic or he has to audible or ad-lib, it's a disaster and I, I just don't feel like he has much of a feel for that position, which is a weird thing to say. It's almost like watching Sony Michaud play ready back actually, where I don't know if Sony Michelle may be hurt, and if it turns out he started, I feel bad, but you watch Sony, Michelle, and it looks like he's a converted d. back who just started playing. Running back last week. I know he was great in college, but man, it's like he has no feel for screen passes and he gets hit by the first hacker every single time. And I feel the same about your Bisky. But I think football all these guys fail, but man, it's weird and Trubisky. What do you have yet to twenty in an interception and he's good enough to win some of these games. The bears play he? Yeah. If if Sam Bradford, you know, didn't stink the capper Nick, the Capri case, all they have to do is just show Bradford highlights and just like the defense rests. This is Sam Bradford. He keeps getting started jobs that he keeps getting paid. The defense rests. But you know, we're fourteen to ten. I was going to tax you. And then I was like, I've done enough damage with you and I'm on a cold streak, but the bears were down fourteen ten with all and they were minus. One sixty jumped on. It was my only one day on it. I was like, Arizona's not scoring the point, right? I mean. Graduations on that. I, I was saying the FOX crew for some reason was treating the Bradford benching like Tom Brady to gotten bench. They kept cutting away to him. It's like guys, we get it Sam, Bradford sucks like you can stop showing him show other people before we go to break. I want to say quickly the NFC north, you know, I usually it's two weeks when you start to have a field this week for whatever reason. It's been three weeks and we didn't talk about the Minnesota losing to buffalo and killing on every lemonade or PO. Every ten point tease I picked them no win straight up on this podcast on Friday, although all the ramifications of that, but then you go backwards and you're like, oh, okay. So Minnesota played Green Bay in week one or week two and it was a tie and we thought that was a really good game. But now Green Bay just lost to Washington's. I r. o. all these teams aren't very good. Thank you. Wallah moment where it took us three weeks to realize Minnesota's not that good. I don't know if anyone's not good or if they're just no one's prepared for the season yet. It just seems like all these teams are ill prepared because they were good. These a playoff teams. A lot of them we're talking about and they're just not ready for football this year. I, you know, Green Bay could be, oh, and three. Chicago could be three know Miami's three, you know, Philly could be, oh, and three. Cleveland could be three. Now it's weird the way this all goes on Houston is and three. I haven't seen anything like, I don't remember anything like this, and I definitely well, we'll get to the lines. But boy, do I have a three team teaser in store for you fresh. You getting your ass kicked. Yes. All back. So Minnesota plays San Francisco and week one? Yeah, they, they're act Green Bay week two and then buffalo today and at some point between week two and about the second quarter of that we three game. It's like, oh yeah, it's ridiculous that they were favored by sixteen points over everybody. It did not seem ridiculous on Friday. It was more of a pick against buffalo, but I think I just don't think there's a lot of good teams and I know we, we do this every year, but a rid, the Rams really jump out to me. I think the chiefs offense, the Rams I think the NFC south is good in another day. The Atlanta New Orleans had to play each other. Adding New Orleans is better than Atlanta, but I think the Orleans is good. I think we go backwards and you go, well week, one New Orleans is playing is playing Tampa, and they gave up forty. Eight points in it seems crazy, but then Tampa does it again the next week in Tampa is clearly better than people think. Than week two, they almost lose to the Browns. It's like actually the Browns. I've a lot of talent like that's not crazy, and then they have this character win today in overtime in Atlanta, and I think New Orleans is fine. I would have them in my top five, but the only three teams you could definitively say anything about the Rams and chiefs, or very good or excellent somewhere there, and Arizona Cardinals talk. And then everybody else. I don't know. You know they could. They can win between three in eleven games and yeah, that's when I don't know. I don't know who else we throw in there. Let's say I need to marry them that let's say quick break. Okay. With talk about fan duel football season underway. I'm sure you have major regrets about your season-long fantasy teams. Sometimes it can be over by the innocent timber, and you feel bad about yourself. Actually feel pretty good about my fantasy leagues, right? Not that hasn't stopped me from playing daily fantasy. You know what? I feel bad about though I was in the I was in the fan duel, eliminator contest. I took Minnesota this week, like the rest of the country. So so long fan, do elimination contests that was eliminate or whatever they call it, but a fan deal. You get the excitement of researching and building your team every week. They have something for everyone more ways to win than ever before like gridiron pick him every week. Free contests I need to do is pick winners. No spreads. Ten k. is split among the top pickers as you know. I like to play single entry contests. I like to know that I'm only playing against human beings who enter one lineup this week, spike contests, only five dollars Tanner with a hundred k. prize pool first place. Ten k. join this week. Against me at Faneuil dot com. Slash b. s. new users get a twenty dollar bonus when they made their first deposit of vandal. Again, fan, DOE dot com. Slash Bs. If you played against me this week, I did not do. Is a log with my gambling. My my fantasy choices were not great this league, but Fangio dot com slash Bs. All right. Coming back. One thing that jumped out to me. I hate to single out bad coaching when my own team didn't see very well coached today, and there is a lot of bad coaches, and I think the chargers yet again have done it. They've figured out the perfect recipe of how to have a talented team that also does them things and sheets itself in the foot and just doesn't seem cohesive that Anthony Lynn did something today. There is like, oh, yeah, couple teams of that at what was there like seven minutes left a now may maybe like nine minutes left. He's down down fifteen and it's like third, third down and goal from like the eight. For some reason, they throw like an alley oop, pass in the end zone and double coverage, and then kick a field goal to cut it to twelve. There's like eight minutes left in the variety of up thirty five points the ramps. It's like it's still a two touchdown game. You morons. What are you doing? Well, our worst case there, you don't get the touchdown. But at least they're on their own eight yard line, you might get the ball back. You still need two touchdowns, but it's like the chargers. Are there just a mess? They're really they and they have talent. They have good receivers. They have good running back. They have a quarterback who can make plays. They have guys on defense and that Bose's out. But they have at least a couple of guys who can make plays on defense. And I just feel like from a talent standpoint, they're like in the top eight in it's embarrassing that they're wanted to and that you know if you're at Arizona down, fifteen, cutting into twelve at nine minutes left. That's one thing, but the Rams Cooper cop is open for twelve yards every single play gonna score. Again, you have to keep you have to get sevens on the board and not threes, and by the way you're fill kickers traditionally sucks. I don't know why you're so excited the field go anyway. Yeah, they needed to score more obviously, but I don't. I'm the, I'm not giving up on San Diego just yet. No, a really they played. They played a two teams that I just talked about the chiefs and Rams. Those are their losses because we, we think at nine in seventeen could make the playoffs in the in the NFC. I think that's reasonable. And it might be my New England, Patriots. You might have to hundred seven wildcards I don't know your team. I don't know if that Prescott is good. I'm just going to bring that up. He's got a lot of guys in space all the time and they're, they're on the other team. So that's bad his he needs to be a little more accurate, a lot more accurate. I mean, I think they had they had one play over twenty yards in eleven quarters. So yeah, after a while it's a quarterback that has to figure that out, but the pieces aren't there and it's just like Jeff Suame and all these re. They never figure out what to do with tape on Austin, except for the one play against the giants. But and Zeke Elliott. Like I've had enough like he, he's he's reaching te'o level of selfishness. Like, hell, he'll you don't have to eat the soup when you when you catch an eight yard pass down two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, like it pass on that. Give us a break. Yeah, he does like a lot of soup. It's like Jacoby, but I don't know. I'm I'm really fed up with that team and Jason Garrett discussing it with the parley kids like he may be the worse. You know, considering everyday may be the worst coach the Cowboys ever had. And that saying. Dave Campo. No, I know. But these guys went on, they would coordinators and everything, but they but and a lot of them had nothing either. I mean, you're talking about like, you know, you got like Quincy Carter years and everything, but I, I can't take it anymore Garrett. I don't know what to do. What has to happen to get for that guy to get fired. Would you rather Dak Prescott or Blake? Bortles. This dramatic pause. I don't know what to say is Bortles look great last week. But what what is it patriots today? That was the patriots. They had nothing today. I guess I'd go with back. I would go back. I trust them with his leg more. The one team that I thought could have and maybe should have one. And this was one of the games I was watching on my iphone. The story I'll get to later the colts really could have stolen that eagles game in a couple things had gone the right way. I still not. I'm not the culture definitely not across off to me. I'm not sure how good the eagles are. I'm not worried about them till November. They'll have guys come back though they'll peak at the right time, but that was one game where I'd feel it really like the colts could have stolen. That one. I think the Niners might have comeback amid that chiefs game interesting to of Garoppolo may be hadn't gotten hurt, but, but from too far behind but the colts Steph away. Yeah, luck luck was good whence booked. Okay. I thought he coughed it up a couple of times through a pick, and I think he fumbled once Bannon eleven minute drive that spanned the end of the third quarter well into the fourth quarter. And that's like Philly. Just punish Indianapolis. I got a couple of calls from the reps to keep the drive going, but then law came down and. What was odd to me is when have you ever seen someone else throw the hell married and the game, but you Kobe percent was brought into throw the hell. Mary like that tells you everything you know about lock in his arm like this, you have Marianna Rivera coming in and finishing up with the most important pass of the game. It is humiliating. Right? Yeah, it's there's some sort of a really aspect to it that you're not man enough to throw the hill Mary that the bigger the other guy to throw the hill air you your visit, strong enough, really stupid. Do. They showed him on the sideline. He's like, yeah, that's your guy. I'm I'm not. I'm not cut out for this. They were that. They were that. Snowboarding Fiene snowboarded you'd be throwing the hail Mary, but we even to this other guy. That's right. Let's the eagles offense doesn't scare me. I know it's early for went and everything, but there are ten off since it scared me more than the eagles right now. We have. The other thing I'll just mentioned about today's games is Rogers is really hurt. He's just hurt and I would. I would love to know what his knee injury as we speculated last week about whether he has a tornado or something. I think every possible knee injury is on the table for him because he does not seem comfortable or write or anything in there. There's definitely something more wrong than just he has a sprained. Nee. I refuse to believe it's a spring getting off to a slow start for sure. I don't know. They got beat up all over the place. I mean, you would have thought the Peterson twenty carries one hundred and twenty yard days were long gone, but is that what's going to happen to the Packers defense? They just they just show they have no killer instinct at all, except the Rogers. And like you said, he's he's playing probably sixty five percent now they need. They need him at one hundred percent to do anything with this weird. Maybe not for the NFC north this year. I don't know. And men should Bisky is scant better each week. Oh no, he's that. He's not a dog. The Vikings thing how every time I looked at the TV I couldn't believe that score and it didn't they. They didn't even want to put up a touchdown until the very end, but this is it. It seemed amazing and it is because as long as we've been watching football for forty years, a big RJ bell or someone, three this a team. That's been a fourteen point plus underdog has never won by more than touchdown forty years and I and they shattered the hell out of that. I saw that that. It was the biggest spread anyone has ever covered in one since nineteen ninety two, which was like the third year I ever gambled then I probably lost on that game. Whatever it was, I guess. So, yeah. Yeah, you know. I think the bills are still across off, but listen, Josh Allen made some things happen in that game and look, super cleric. Yeah, who knows the him? I it now, so we all pick that game wrong for sure. We're not saying we had it right, but in retrospect, I think like at something happens when these are grown men and they say that these teams are so even anyway, in terms of talent, when you're a grown man and you have another grown man on your team quit on you, and then you hear your sixteen and a half seventeen point underdogs you're gonna fight with something that that you've never reached down for before. I think. And I think that's kind of what happened. I think we're gonna see the bills aren't a very good team didn't make any sense Leshan McCoy's not in. I don't know who Allen's throw into half the time, but he he did job on his feet and red flags, no cook. I ag- Nord all the red flags pod ahead in the Vikings. Six. It was just like it really did seem like the bills had a chance to be the worst team of all time. And it turns out that that it's do. They need their dome back, maybe Minnesota. Great. I don't know. The new field doesn't seem like a great great advantage for them. Let's quickly talk about it the Monday night game tonight, which has become increasingly interesting. The line has moved. It is I think it's now even there is levian bell trade rumors stuff going on all day today. Fitzpatrick is now owned and every fantasy league and being started on a lot of teams. Not mine, unfortunately, today, but I really like Tampa was probably my favorite game on the board this whole week, other than New Orleans. And I just really liked Tampa in this game. What am I missing is what? So what say we're backseat driving after after Pittsburgh wins by fifteen hours should've seen his all. We should've known fit spat. Like I just don't think Pittsburgh I, it's a very similar situation to the pats where there's just not a lot of talent on both sides anymore. And I actually think this could go the other way we're Tampa can just dominate them. What am I missing. I was looking at some of the futures. I bet we're betting, but it's still betting futures. That's the season goes on. But yeah, I have tampon big poly to not make the playoffs have the Sean Jackson under four touchdown receiving have an I have Jimmy Jimmy g. over fifteen and a half interceptions. So I'm looking rock solid out of these. But I, the only thing I would say is at some point, shit has the normalize in the NFL. Right? And doesn't start Monday or did start like week five or something. Man, I think maybe November, maybe November didn't want to talk about that most interceptions bet. And didn't we talk about the way to get screwed in that bed as quarterbacks get hurt all the time. And we. Do it. I have darnold over twelve and a half. I just took like all the young quarterbacks over because even if they upgrade years, I think they'll throw a few picks, but how does it have what one thing that did happen? Like Dirk cutters, right, right. In line with Mike Tomlin for I coach fired, I'm not saying either one of them is going to happen, but it was dark and Hugh Jackson at the top when the season started and how has dropped all the way down and Tomlin my pass them. Where's where's Bill Brian in this conversation as he's a number one with a bullet right now, but he might be taken out with a with a job billet. Happening. All right. So actually, let's take one more break or even get to the guests lines. Hey, what's talk about Starbucks? Double shot starts with bold Starbucks. Coffee blend with milk for a smooth creamy, delicious flavor. Enhanced with Jensen. Gerona B-vitamins available in six delicious flavors Moke of the Noah hazelnut wedge out at coffee and Mexican mocha in energy coffee drink that not only tastes great, but gives you the energy to go from point a to point done. DJ heavy rumors. Joe house has done a Trente redeye from Starbucks and then poured the Starbucks double shot in it. And then I think he ran a three, nine forty, but you know what? You need energy. Dan day. I needed energy. We tape this podcast and guess what ad Starbucks double shot energy to do things you actually do find it in your local convenience store, the Starbucks double shop. Week four to buy week teams this week, the Redskins of Washington and the Panthers of Carolina Panthers tune. One looking pretty good. They took our business today and you and I have them to win the division. So we're kind of root for that. I guess the biggest thing that happened is McCaffrey McCaffrey is a good this year. It's like they've figured out how to use him and one hundred and eighty four yards. Rushing. He does. He wasn't good for half that. Yeah, like east dangerous and he's the combo him and and Cam, it's that's just a tough team to play at. We'll see if if they can stay healthy, especially on defense Cam in the red zone is spectacular. Just in getting there is the problem with, yeah, they'll still have games where they have thirteen entering midway through the fourth and it's like, how the hell is this guy not taking them downfield? Well, Thursday night is a great one. It's Rams Vikings. The Rams are gonna beginning three straight days of. Is this l. a.'s best team two could the Rams they they're going to go six and own their division. Could they go sixteen in our every talking head thing you're ever going to be afraid of actually could the Rams go sixty to know what would you put for odds on that twelve to one twenty two one, nine or ten. But now these cornerback so they, I don't know. Yeah, but they're both of those Cornerbacks got hurt in the second half the Vikings with digs and with Adam feeling and you know, but Thursday night I have, I picked the Rams minus seven and a half against the vikes. All right. I'm going to get to some plywood culture. I said, minus six, and it's six and a half. That seems too low. Yeah, this is where you get screwed is where everybody jumps on the Rams and the Vikings game goes to overtime or something stupid counter good. The Rams are just beating everybody by double digits at some point. Maybe they should just be favored by like at least seven and a half and higher until they don't beat somebody by double digits. They've right there. Gas pedal is as good as we've seen in a while. They really turned it on their always guys open. They're always going for it. They are by far offensively the most impressive team, not just talent standpoint, but though the way they're coached and the play calling, they're just on it that McVeigh's. That's great coach. And Wade Phillips on defense figures, everything out. Eventually since ballot check retired, we're wondering who the guy next guy was going to be. And now I think it Sean McVeigh. Yeah, for sure. But you just let that joke. Oh, you didn't even by that it no fake Trump what happened. But I said since ballot check retired. Oh, I see. Yeah, he didn't play off the joke. You just kind of let it hang. They're like still far. When did they retire before the Malcolm Butler? I'm trying to figure out when he retired. He retired. He's like, I'd rather lose the Super Bowl and start Joe schmo than Malcolm Butler. Yeah, and and I'm not going to blitz for this entire fourth quarter and just let the eagles go for ten minutes. God, damn, you know what people don't wanna hear is me complaining about the patriots after five. What you're being cavalier about it, but I don't think you're ready for this. I don't think I grew up with this downfall. I. I think I think you need to get their now. It's the patriot head to decide thing. You're not prepared for this a mentally already with the Celtics. I'm just ready for the sixty. Eight win Celtics season. Write checks playoffs. I'm just ready. I know you're going to have some sad day. It might not even be for another two years or so. But Brady is gonna crumble. And ballot check is gonna be right there. There might be laughing at him at the at that time we knew have three super successful kids and one's a doctor and one's an attorney in one's one's a supreme court. Judge. Maybe a bad time for that analogy, but the judge wants a federal judge, and you know, all three of them are doing great and you and you have your friends and they're like how your kids doing. I'm like, oh, the Red Sox are great. They just had another kid. Celtics are looking. They just moved into an awesome mansion bragging about the kids. And the pats, you know, bobby's in rehab, but he's going to get out and it's great and things are good, and you know that's ROY. Or kidded about to be disbarred? I think I don't know if you're ready for it. I don't know if the families ready just out of curiosity, what would you have had for the Sunday marquee game? I'll let you pick. And with the Redskins and Panthers off the board, I don't know what the hell you did with this. Who is the I was looking at this, what would I have had. Free is it is it box bears. I don't know what you did here. So I left it Hegel titan. I was going to say no marquee game this week, but had to say. Had to say like Pat Stoff pats against the three, no dolphins Owoko compact paying a week of complete panic about the patriots and that's going on is Brady Dan. I mean, you should have seen the ring or NFL slack today. There's a lot of people who there might be retribution in a bunch of different ways, really good for some of the behavior in the slack today. I noticed slacks luck, it's fine. It's names. I want to hear what's fan. I took a lot of mental notes. It's it took a lot of. Quoting the Pat down is at bragging about the Steelers, having six rings and the pats having five and got to that. There was some dancing on Brady's grave, and it just got super personal in there. And I, I remembered all of it. I can't believe they weren't ready for this game tonight. I cannot believe it. Do you think ballot check? He's just like, you know what? I'm gonna throw away the season maybe Brady retire. I'm just going to tank the season. Yeah. Deep threat. I'm going to frame Jillian Ataman for PD suspension. Doesn't make him look good. I don't know. Here Pat. Now, will you go three games? You can't drop three games behind the dolphins, right? I mean, I know it will still be timbre or Sunday might be October, but. Drop you three games. Yeah. How are we having this conversation? It's not even my birth. Annette, I, I'm not supposed to panic. My birthday's on Tuesday. It's not. I'm not supposed to write Tuesday and that really it's more of a sad of depressing birthday, but it's it's usually like the week after my birthday when there's like real pass panik this time dump them that I have pats minus eight and a half against dolphins. I think Vegas, they'll push toward the pets. I got this. I should set an half. It opened at seven and a half. And then after the game went down the seven. You know, there's a recipe. I mean Ryan tannehill. He can move around make some plays tends to be the kind of quarterback that when you have the slowest linebackers in the history of football, that becomes a problem. They had one play in that game today. Nephew called our go nuts. He, he stopped googling. What is next tattoos? Gonna be and just got so bad. They did a swing pass on third down to the running back and they had this behind the camera shot of of of Bentley, the rookie linebacker on the pats, reading the play reading. It actually had probably a yard of a step on the running back knew exactly where he was going well prince to the spot and the guy not only beat into the spot, but made up, you know, five yards vertically and was just so much faster was it was honestly disturbing. I was guy made a pick, right? He had the interception didn't. He could staff. Offered all to do is throw it over his head. He would have been a touchdown instead he between your team in my Cowboys like we could. We could pressure the quarterback and maybe even get a sack now and then we'll never force a turnover, whereas you will always make the other team. Do sunset. You didn't really capitalize on it, but I have a nice thing that three watchable games this week. The first one Bengals which ended Dalton latte. Lot of lot of fantasy buzz for him. Lot of daily fantasy buzz for him. Is this the air for? Would he have four picks today? Couple of those four picks sworn his fault, but yet he had two touchdowns for option. Don't ruin my narrative at four picks. I don't. I love the way Hatami had them all over the place against the Panthers. And yeah. Seven, nothing, right. I had the classic moment where unfurnished podcast talked myself out of the Bengals because they didn't have Joe mixing as normally. I'd take them there jammed up. And then today I texted you and I was like, I'm betting the Bengals and I totally forgot about the Joe mixing thing. Why would I. It was that defense, you can't give up a hundred and eighty four yards. So running back, that's true. But I think maybe they could outscored them anyway. Think about the other way. How many times have we taken the Panthers Lang points at home? And we just never ever worked out. Here slap in the face of black cat for us. I had the falcons by four at home over cincy. You're going to get this. I said three because the falcons only gave that was a weird line with what the saints only ended up giving them one and a half or two, but it's five and a half this line. So you get back-row. Okay. It's an untouchable. I don't know what you want to call it, but that's that's very strange. That's firmly in the Vegas own. I don't think the falcons. I just don't see it. I just think it's one of those years for them and and they definitely missed Dion Jones today. I think we can safely say that one, but I don't see it. It's like heading into overtime. Did you think the falcons were gonna win even before the Clinton house? Nothing. That's what I meant. It's like, you know, I it, it's better that you need to score touchdown to win, but whoever won that coin flip was gonna win that game, right. You won the coin flip. You thought they were gonna win? Yeah, I did. I did. I think they played the time, right? They didn't. They didn't. They were what were they up? Thirty seven thirty with four minutes left and they just didn't leave themselves enough time the score in regulation. I thought. Something about it, go for a dollar or two, and I'll league any look bad in week one, and then look, you couldn't even find him. He never left Alabama. I something about Atlanta where it's like it goes, maybe it's the Super Bowl, fifty one residue, but it goes to overtime like either gonna lists. I didn't even know who in the coin toss now. You're right. Maybe if they won the coins, I still feel like they would have gone down and just gotten a field goal, and then the saints scored the touchdown and won by three. I thought Sean Payton. That was like the first game he won in a while watching he, he did well, he outcoached the falcon staff. I thought not hard bears. What one more fantasy? No, because my teams are going to be a win three league. I had Mahomes and Ryan seventy three points out of my quarterbacks. I started the wrong one which was Mahomes Jesus Ryan at forty nine. It's not like Mahomes as bad now. I know. I know that's I just can't get it right. So we've used the same website. I think since you started this league, you had this league before I did and now it has this distinct. We can go back year-by-year and look at the standings, and then it says like head batch up, but it doesn't. It has the career head-to-head matchup Henchi mailed me text to me. It was like, we're thirteen and thirteen lifetime against each other. I'm like, what? And had this new new thing in the website that has a history coal, you pay like seven dollars and some of the guys don't wanna pay it. They want to do a free league or something. But I I like it. I like having the stats there. So we could go back and look at every season. We've had. Which I, of course I did. Well, how was it not gonna do that. There's what's better time-waster going back through old fantasy. And I went back to go look at my my two thousand seventeen the greatest fantasy team ever. Assembled course, I wrote a column for ESPN about what what's harder to go undefeated in your fantasy league or your real league in this was when the pats were six. And now in my fantasy team was six now, and I came to the conclusion, it was actually easier to go undefeated in the NFL because in fantasy, you know your one of your best guys could just have an off day. You have to bench people on by weeks and I was right. The pats went sixteen to know this team ended up thirteen and two, which was the best record this century in our league thirteen into. So then I went back and read the com I wrote and had all the guys and it was like ladainian Tomlinson. Adrian Peterson is a rookie at traded for Tony Romo. I had three of the best ten receivers, and then I'm texting you enhance your bat, it and I'm like, oh my God. I'm sending you stuff. And this is a Saturday night, and I'm thinking like my life. Really over this got Saturday night texting to other bad guys with kids about my fantasy team from eleven years ago who was on it, somebody should come here and just shoot me right now and we didn't ignore you. We, we go. But, but yeah, you're right about it being easier for pro team to go undefeated versus a versus a fantasy team, your fantasy quarterback. It's knocked out in the first quarter. You can't put anybody else out. You're stuck with zero or go round. Yeah, you can go wrong team at the wrong time. You go against like Mahomes during his six touchdown thing, but it was fun. I, I have a chance to be three, nine fantasy and that's not gonna. Here's what I hate about our league. So they have like a guru and it tells you who you should tell you who you should start. If you're making the wrong decision, it will put in big role, red, bold number, what you're giving up. So for instance, I start Royce Freeman, yes, this is how bad things have gotten for me already. Awake three. I start Royce Freeman, Denver, running back. I have Philip Lindsay on the bench, big red numbers saying Philip Lindsay is going to score two more points. Or one point eight more points than Royce Freeman. I stare at this for about seven to ten minutes, and then I'm Mike. All right, screw it. I'll put Philip Lindsay and because you know why? Because on Tuesday, this website sends us a taunting Email. If you lose and they'll call you out by name to a point where you hate your own name. Like coach sound like Hano disregarded our advice and beheads coach down my condo keeps disregarding our advice all year coached ally, kind of paid the price, and it's like, oh, all right. I can't take this anymore and there's nothing more. I can't get back at them and I can't Email them back. I do. I put in Lindsay for Freeman, Freeman gets a touchdown. The first drive Lindsay gets thrown out of the game for punching some some guy in the face don't. I'm I'm screwed. I'm sick of the guru. I won't say where where what league this is, but it's I'm done with the room somehow. We signed up for this are for the sarcasm league. I dunno at the Phoenix. It's a caveat Jessil, Nick. This girl. It's like, sounds of fucking moron. And that's why office week and he sucked. It's like, what. And us to make decisions like, hey, I I have a Jon Hamm Yellen Abby. I think that's enough. I don't. I don't need you this. This faceless creature. Shoot me down for a point. Three difference. Oh, my God, screw you. Finish on Gary, nobody. Thank you. All right. Let's let's go next Cape more. Yeah, there's one more watchable raiders Browns. All right. So you ask, why is this one of the watch was the raiders are awful. They're Owen three. Well, here's my case. First of all, Baker mayfield's going to be playing in this game and like everyone else Menard and excited and delighted by Baker Mayfield and everything that's happened including on on coward show on Friday, Jason McAteer your co worker. That's right here in lock it in. He comes on lacking in sometimes did a whole bit about how Baker Mayfield looked at his phone, walk into the post game, just complete contempt that I didn't know what was going on. I don't know if it was a bad or there was like some new comedy segment and carrots saying where somebody comes in with fake tape, what did he do? He had this whole thing about, here's my issue with Baker Mayfield. Look at this. He wins a game. He's welcome back to. He's on his phone. Why is he honest phone to this? It's crazy. I it honestly seemed like the onion was filming this, but this was apparently a real sports take, but I love that there's Baker backlash and it's, it's all good. It's fantastic people. Love. Baker people are trying to undermine. And then in the other side, Jon Gruden who's, oh three, we are every every raiders last brings us one loss closer to a bunch of raiders bets. We made that that I really enjoy. I have the raiders somehow favored in this game. So by one and a half the app to be favored, they have to be I, I went, I went too far. I said four because it's still the Browns on the road. So this is this is a whole different six hundred day thing. It's two and a half, so you win that one. The Browns have talented dudes. I'm in on the point. They can't get points on the road. I know their defense is good and everything and. Baker plus one forty, offensive rookie of the year. Do you take it Barkley I think is too scary l. really Barclay. I would really who'd you say, I guess they're starting to use them right now Barkley. But I think Barclay has like two hundred sixty our game in him the season, something crazy. Like where he breaks to different seventy eight yard runs. I really do think catches. I think he's going to have. He's going to have one of the crazy fantasy days of the last like five years this season at some point again team. Yeah, every timing Arnold Boyd himself out of the race like Ridley ridley's in darnold out for those top three. You know, I'm only doing this because he was being to the patriots and the slack today. But Sean fantasy who's been driving the Sam darnold bandwagon book publicly and privately in our slack. By the end of that Brown's jets game was like, oh my God. We drafted the wrong QB. Fuck my life. That was basically your slack that whole Thursday night. So that happened there witnesses and and you can keep those pats barbs coming. But you sold out your big adult redhead, son Trump forget like three data. Yeah, poor fantasy, yes. Bad bad for the jets. Let's do. The barely watchable is of which I had six. This is a bad week. I got to say if there's a week, if there's a week to either hang out your kids go to your kid's sporting events. Go apple picking. We used to call that out that. Checking October, I, it's not not too early. Well, this feels like a very apple picky weekend. There's just a lot of games that are entertaining, just for gambling and fantasy purposes. In that said, I one your Cowboys going against them. This weird lions team that we watch tonight. I the Cowboys. You know, I did that my guest before the lions game. Now I'm gonna cut my get. I just minus three. Go minus three Cowboys over lines. Yeah, you got it. I said to before the, I even saw tonight's game and it's three and a half. Freely make any sense to me. Yeah. By three and a half. If you lose this game. Why? What happens. It's over. If he's ever going to fire Jason Garrett, it'd be after game. Like if it's like Stafford throws four hundred yards and five touchdowns or like something bad happens, fans are booing this. This has potential to to go that direction. Next one pass. I'd say it all the time. There were eight and three, which on Lee one in four without him last year and that that's not those numbers not gonna change. He's all the difference in the middle of that defense, and it helps back out a lot. He could screw up a little when Sean leaves there. And yeah, I don't see them favored by more than a field goal without Sean Lee. It's funny. I was not Lawrence Taylor was the best linebacker of all time, but apparently had Sean Lee. Oh, stop it, stop it. The same thing about Bruschi back in the day Bruschi one Super Bowl is what the hell does. John leeway didn't win anything. Tom Brady one Super Bowl, my God Brusca was the heart of that team as love Tedy Bruschi. How dare how dare you dare you patriots ever. Teams are junk. I teddy on the same side for once. I would take forty five year Tedy Bruschi right now is my middle linebacker. I think you'll be faster than Mike. Packers bills. This is in Green Bay. I have no idea what to make the bills, whether who knows, but I had the, I think they should design. Hi because the Packers are public team Packers by nine. I said ten and a half and open the ten and a half went down to ten. So. Take that one. Okay. And you like that on a three team cheese. You don't have to admit it to me right now. You will not see me put any money on any Aaron Rodgers game this season until I feel. Yeah, he's a complete cross off for me unless I was played in two two games. There were double digit underdog. They would win too, and awry. It's fine. Aaron Rodgers can do whatever he wants. I'm just not. I'm not betting on him this season. They're so mad at Iran mad at him. I think he's playing on one leg. He's hurting. He's not healthy. He's not not getting better. It's not like he's healthier than he wants to weeks ago. It looks to say thank you. Have a crush on danika. Patrick. I think that's the whole thing here. All right someday she'll be a Bill by. I can feel it. We move on heightens eagles in Tennessee. I think we should just combine Marcus mariota and Blaine gabbert and just call them like blah, blah, blah, Arcus Gabbard Yoda who. Because whoever it is it's not somebody you wanna bet on on the other hand eagles have really no explosiveness at all and their fans. It's funny, their fans, he I hear you. I know you're out there. You're doing the whole, oh man, it's it's so weird to go through eagles season where I'm not freaking out when we're playing like this. It's like we know what you're doing. It's like a humble brag. You're still humble bragging about how he won the SuperBowl. God, it's so disoriented. Things like settled down, go render planning that they weren't getting any respect like after almost losing to the falcons data down, and then they got beat. They lose to a week to go on in Philly, special, the hell out of yourself, go to hell. Just like you don't get a parade every every time you win a game for the big one. There's been fifty three Super Bowls in your team won. One of them shut up, move on titans, minus one over the eagles. That's what I. Oh, wow. I had eagles minus two and a half, and it's eagles minus three. I think that's a mistake. Way off their Bill. I, I believe in this titans team as a keep it close tough. Well, coached him. That means you're taken them plus nine on a two team cheese that I have not been Marcus Gabbard. Yoda. Luck as Gabrielle Gabbara Yoda Cabrera gotta be. Sabri. Well, yeah, we trigger that ex-girlfriend colts at home against the Texans. I have the colts favourite in this game. I think they're dangerous bandwagon pick because nobody thinks the Texas are getting people kinda like the colts, even the one and two. I've the colts by four. I'm gonna get this. I said three. It was two. It moved to two and a half. Houston's not good. What are what are people looking at? I wonder if this is this is a division where everybody beats everybody on the road. Seems like I don't know that might not even be accurate, but it does seem like anytime we try and take a home team in the in the inner vision game, we can't. We can't come back with money. Is a playoff game. Yeah. For your season's over right in less, they fire brand. Now, Bill, Brian got fired before Tuesday. Would that line go down? I don't think they'd do it yet. I think this is the game. This could be the game. This could be the far the coach with just could be Jason, Garrett, Bill O'Brien and wherever blinks first, hey, we'll pilot together seats at giants. Saints at giants. That's right. Yup. I have seen by three. Yeah, you're gonna get it. I said one and a half. I don't know why. I believe in the giants little there was three and a half. It's down to three walk you through all my fears for this game. Yeah, sure. First of all, we're going to have money in the saints like you could Mark that down right now that's happening. About the second quarter when it's giants for three saints, three and and Barclay has two titties already and breezes thrown two picks and they start running the outdoor stats. That's when I text you and say, what the fuck ary doing Betty and the saints outdoors. Why'd you let me do this? That's that's going to be our Sunday around ten fifty Pacific. I know, but it's not. Okay. Bear with me here just like the Jaguars. I said the same thing when the Jaguars went to what MetLife state where the New Jersey Meadowlands. Whatever like this game is not November. That was a November game. I could see the giants win by thirteen stupidly, you know, it'll be seventy seven degrees, right? Late September, October. I think this is a nice spot of the thing. I don't like the saints outdoors, but I'm still betting them. Listen, I'm done. I'm a back door. Lodging it last one chargers at home. Against CJ Beathard in the forty Niners. I got charges by ten and a half. All right. Yeah, man, you're gonna get this. I said nine and that was light and it's nine and a half. Now this that now this is the game. You could talk me into thrown into a tease. I am this the Packers and there's going to be one wasn't there are no. Now there's one more coming up. I think the chargers are very easy to figure out there. This is the kind of game they win thirty eight to ten, and everybody's feeling good after in the they'll blow whatever the close game that they should win or the when they need that will happen later. But this is the kind of they'll take care of. I could see that I get to that. I'm not that on the chargers. Like I said, also the chiefs and the Rams who seemed to be head and shoulders above the rest of the week. One more break them. We're coming back with the poop factor.

Slash b. s. SimpliSafe with two is SimpliSafe dot com. Slash b s? I were back. So if he didn't notice, I moved the poop Fechter toward the end of the podcast by multiple reader request. You notice that I did that good, but that wasn't the poop factor. The games we went over just now there's too bad ones. The the Jags are home against the jets. I don't wanna watch one minute of this game. I had the Jags minus nine. Yeah, you get. I'm so often I said seven 'cause Jaguars and show me a lot. And I thought the jets at ten days rest and that would help. But it was nine. It went down to eight, you get it nonetheless. We've forgotten third team on a three teaser Packers over bills. Jaguars overjoyed nice Aaron Rodgers like he might have. They met at the amputate his leg by next week. We don't know what's going to hide. You're still against. They're just, I don't know what's wrong with them. Darnold throw over on their two interceptions this all this is bad for Sam darnold the the Baker Mayfield things bad. Yeah, Josh Allen having some, oh Joe's like Sam darnold had the QB Mojo from this draft than it's been stolen from him. Yeah, we forgot it for like an hour. He basically had it and he threw for two hundred yards against the lions. I mean, it was mostly because the jets were running back punts and pick six against the lions, but he was a, it was a star of the league. Went away when Beth Moen's is announcing his game. That's when he has his Mojo for Tim, and they have a connection. We forgot what Jags titans. The titans kind of have had their number lately. And I think that's something we should take into account a little more often. Sometimes certain teams just like playing other teams in the titans said, handed to them a couple times and yellow conference from that, we have to figure out who were rooting for Gabbard or mariota. I'm really barcus cab, Ryota removed for the combination Marcus, just kill kills our our momentum. Now, this second poop fact, the game is really one for the ages. I didn't even like I only had three games weren't there three games on the TV's nephew one? Yeah, I didn't even want this game on one of the three TV's and Elliott. There's I'd four TV's in three games and I ain't feel good about the Seahawks Cowboys. The Seahawks are just depressing. It's like watching a zombie of a team. It's like the CARA. Still there and Russell Wilson still there, and there's Thomas, but they're just as ambi-. It's it's in the Walking Dead like before they shoot Zambia that used to be the little girl that they love and they know they have to shoot zombie. That's the that's the point there in. I don't like watching them. I know I don't like watching the cardinals and they're playing each other in Arizona. I have cards by one. Oh, wow. Yeah, hard by one. Yeah. Yeah, you know why we saw the best of the cardinals take q. hours ago. Now I through this pick away, you know why? Because Kaz screw you. Seattle, I'm so tired of wine about the Super Bowl, screw, screw. Everybody, screw Seattle, Philly. Screw fantasy. Everybody can go to hell Seattle. Have you under- dogs in Arizona, this week. How about that? I see how minus four and a half in their mind is three in the desert. All agree with you. I'll agree with you. I think everything's I even think Pete Carroll's gum chewing is slowing down. I mean they say the first thing, you lose a speed and it just it looks like a whole different team. It is a different team. It's a different team because it is a different team. Yeah, Arizona has three to real chances to win a game this year, and this is one of them. And the other one is in San Francisco comes there. Well, the other one was today. Yeah. Today when Mitch Trubisky was dying to let them win Sunday night, raven Steelers. This used to be a really fun game. You missed one. Did you miss one? I don't think so. We didn't do bucks pairs. Yeah, we did bugs payers than we are. We talked about it. Maybe we'd never actually did the line wait and pick a lot. That was in the watchable. Oh, you brought it up and I never did. All right. The watchable 's. 'cause sorry, going backwards bears bucks in Chicago, tough one because we don't know what's going to happen with the bucks on Monday night, but I had the bears minus three. I had three also, and it's started to it's two and a half. Now I really enjoy the bears that I think they're my league pass MVP so far. I love the defense. I like watching Cohen. I liked their receivers in every time. Trubisky goes back to pass. It's absolutely mesmerizing cabinet. Eleven betting. She's great. It's you don't know where the ball's gonna go. You don't know what's going to happen. He's so much fun. It's like it's like when you have an eighteen month old kid that she's running around a living room with a lot of like obstacles, and you just don't know if this is when they impale themselves inside of the TV. That's how I feel at your Bisky Sunday. We're mixing. We're mixing watchable with the parent corner. I'm trying to figure out what I want the bucks to do in order to be able to handicap this game. I guess it's fun if the bucks win big, right. I bet against them on the road. Now we want we want Tampa and the dolphins to be three now because that's just ridiculous. Sunday, six and a half. You don't want them to keep winning. It went Lewis. At some point. You're gonna have to disappear with the way your years. I know at Baltimore. Make me disappear. Well, at least you're not on a gambling show every day where you have to give your picks now. That's right. I'm an expert ravens. I have minus for at home over the Steelers. Ravens minus four. No Steelers are home. Oh, Steelers are home. I wrote that Dan wrong. My apologies will. Then I have Steelers minus four at home against the ravens. All right. I that also they have it a Steelers minus three. Well, we'll find out tonight. What would be the my sister raven just kick the crap. They're better home team than well. Then then whenever I take them, that's for sure. But they, they seem when I stay away from them, they seem to dominate at home would be the most fun team to trade for levian bell this week. Well, the worst thing would be yours. Do you have cap space? I was thinking about that today. Pittsburgh's never trading test. We've been beating them this whole century. Yeah, that's true. They're not into screw Pittsburgh to add them to the list of people and go screw themselves tonight. So a team that has a chance. Let's say the car. Wait, a second would Pittsburgh take Sony Michelle straight up. Off right now. The first three games, they'll probably throw Jesse James in the mix too. Just just to go on it, that'd be gum. Let's see. Jaguars back dolphins. What about the dolphins? I was thinking the bucks. Yeah, you trade levian bell to the bucks for Aaron Jones of the high set grander. They picked picked and Ronald Jones, ab-. Sorry, and then maybe thrown Winston. Interesting. Pay have Winston and Rothlisberger on the same day team though. I don't think the NFL they already have players threatening not show up for the game, Monday chiefs at Broncos. The ESPN really hitting the lottery with this Monday night schedule. It pays to get rid of politics on your air. You get better. NFL games, heaves Broncos. I have the chiefs minus four against the Broncos. I had four and a half, and it's five now wait a minute. Let me add these up real quick, three, four, five, six might be your only win today. It is my only wind today. Oh, there you have it out. Congrats. Beautiful. Thank you. It's all worthwhile. Do love the chiefs here. I think this is a kind of perfect kind of a perfect game for them because I think they're going to score against every defense. And you know, I don't think case keenum has enough. No, not enough fiber. I guess Sanders does. Well as one big catch every game. No, I like the chief share. I think. Denver as a home. Dog on a Monday night is just inherently frightening. Just hi, it's just, yeah. Framed by the one. All right. Let's let's do parent corner. You go. I all right. Okay. So my my middle kid, the ten year old cannon, Harry, he wants to live with cannon. Harry doesn't like the circumstances around here. And one of the things he doesn't like is we make them do something. So like when he put Pano like, all right, you have to do something. What are you? Gonna do you're gonna swim. He did swimming for a minute then like it. Like, how about taekwondo? He's like fifty, seven pound weakling. You know, he's he. He has no interest in sports. Otherwise he played baseball, didn't didn't like it. So we get him do taekwondo mainly because I kept saying, you know your four year old brother who you hate is getting big and strong, and you know you wanna you wanna be able to take care of yourself. And my wife didn't hear me say this because she would be mad that this is this was pretense which I got him to agree to take taekwondo. But he took it and I, I'm not around 'cause I'm working. So my wife takes him to the lessons, and you know, they give you like a bell like every like every two or three months. It seems like you get a belt, you test for a belt. Others like color. It's it starts like yellow orange. She's had. He's had green and now, but now he hates it. Now he can't stand it and he's just going through the motions and he's going through the testing and he's barely, you know, you have to break a board with the different strike or different kick every time you chest for new bell. In addition to going through all these cadences and everything. And he, he's breaking the boards on like four attempts and and so he now he doesn't like it knows one doing. It's like I'm gonna stop at blue bell like now you have to do it and he's like, he really puts up a fight and he's like, I don't wanna do it. I don't wanna do it. Then my wife tells me how much this cost and it's like seventy five dollars a lesson. He's going twice a week and I know people think I made the money and I was before this patriots game tonight. And that's not the case. So I was like seventy five a lesson. Wow. What is what is it to test when they test you? It's two hundred and fifty dollars. It's like, yeah, of course. They're making him test every two months when he's not ready to go from belt. Out of court. This all makes sense now like, all right, tell the teacher, this is it is getting his blue bell. He's probably not gonna. You're gonna have to do a spinning back kick the break the board. You're not even really looking at the board now and he has to do that. He has to break that aboard that he can't really bring on four attempts otherwise. Okay. So now he's testing for the blue belt and the sends. I know this is his last thing. What does he do? He goes up there. He breaks the board on the first chance and in in addition to that, he gets a trophy for best a big trophy, like three feet tall dome of his I and you know what happens. He wants a frigging stay with taekwondo and now every month. And then now ninety dollars into test is like two hundred ninety dollars. They know what they're doing, and I think they rigged the board. Ford was scored the board. It's like that he broke a bro- broken already. Broken board is like the hell in the cell and they when they. They messed with the cage. So mankind go through it. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, that's it. There's like three hundred and forty dollars to test tank Cuando. Sounds like one of the biggest Ponzi schemes we have. Yeah. It's right up there. It's a huge, huge money grab. I mean, this kid's going to be a black belt and he's going to get blown over by a light fall win. Well, some at some point, maybe you're going to be like in Mexico or something and muggers come. And then maybe that's when you'll find out with this taekwondo idea. Children's book and children's book version of my lifetime, but he's probably just gonna crack his four year old brother in the skull. And that'll be that Jack will come in like Mr. Miaki and just clean out all the robbers. So there's nothing to rob 'cause I have no money because it's all gone to the taekwondo. My wife went to Boston this weekend, and so I had to be Mr. dad weekend, which is great for the kids. There's just a lot of like, all right, it's do what you, what, hey, let's get post maids. Latte of that. A lot of that's going on last night, my son and I watched the first purge. My son loves the purge. By the way, not appropriate for ten year old. I don't really care. We've passed in poor, no return. We know we know that's the one thing we learned from para corner. Yeah, I don't care. I purge was was really great. It really delivered the good. So anyway, he added double header today because he's playing travel baseball now and our team I think is double a. but you know, southern California's really good and they have teams in the majors. Triplets, we're in this tournament and we're playing AAA team. So already my guards kinda like this might not go. Great today, can't there. We left the house alike seven thirty. We get their games at like eight forty, five, nine o'clock, and they're like Benz Benz. Gonna start for us to skim one. So now Benz pitching comes in. First batter swings. Late hits a liner over the second baseman side gets on steel seconds, steals third. Ben box. I, I didn't even see it. I thought it was a shaky call by the by the who is making twenty dollars to beat this beads. Think I'd by the parents and and he's just never the same after that ends up. He gets yanked in the second inning. Tears in his eyes is leaving. You just watch the pair and you're like, oh my God, don't please don't be the one that melts down on the mound and the little do. I know that every every pitcher we have is going to get shelled and we get mercy ruled within an hour. Then the next game double header comes. Now we have all this time to kill. I'm watching. I, my air pods in. I'm watching football on my fan trying to watch the red zone channel, and these other things while poppy my head up and and seeing a lot of the baseball game, but also listening to the football and Britain, middle Dame again or it's a different different team comes in, they also kill us and we get mercy ruled again. Then an hour driving home at noon and bans bitch, and he's mad and his neaten and he's, I'm never pitching again. I'm like, really? You're going to not pitch every pitchy you had got shell today and we're going back and forth is a no, I'm not pitching. No, that balk rule is stupid. I'm not pitching and we're just going back and forth, and I'm yelling at him and he's yelling at me, and it ends with me yelling at him. I gave up football for you today. Actual quote that came out of my mouth driving seventy five miles an hour on on the sixty sixty west, whatever it was. What did he say that. Crap. Now I think he came back with just watch football every Sunday. I don't want you to come up the come just like. One of the kids, I'll tell you what this is your fault because you show them these movies and it teaches them how to argue back these movies. I, I don't even think they learn in school. And it's YouTube, and this is how they fight back. And yeah, now now your feelings are the move is always just to say the other parents better you like apparent more. He, he actually said, I pitched better and moms. They're Mike. All I do is sit there. I don't say anything other than yelled throw strikes. So now we, we have it out about six, seven hours later, but. Got, yeah. So anyway, I did miss football today. I had to watch it on my phone. I lost a lot of bats. My fantasy was very satisfying and and I didn't really enjoy it. We got mercy ruled twice. So thanks for that Ben. I love travel, baseball. Let's keep going to more next week. Adam joined taekwondo eight belts and like three days, you want us to drive anywhere two mercy rule. I wish we had that like in other forms of life, what did it ten runs after three innings of what? What I think it has to get to like fifteen. Oh wow. Yeah. Yeah, that's that's what we're talking here. We lost like fifteen to four and like fifteen to six. The problem is fifty. Yeah. Yeah. The problem is they get on base. These kids are ten. No, nobody has. Nobody has like Johnny bench behind the plate. You get on base, you running. You just van. I'll tell you that I'm it's fun to watch him. I'm glad he's baseball, but I am still pro soccer. It's over in an hour. It's great. You know, in the game starting you show up. It's outdoors games done in an hour. I wanna have your, you're worried your kids going to get slammed in the face with a line drive it some for some reason. It's colder than everywhere else as a spectator sport. It has shivering, baseball has the most moments where you just go, what are you fucking stupid. You know, you just wanna yell at every kid. 'cause it's a of my brain farts and somebody forgetting that the runner ca- tag or somebody getting caught off and it just constantly reinforces that ten year old boys make bad decisions. But still super enjoyable soccer, it's really hard to it's really easy to blend in and just make mistakes, and only people who are really sophisticated with, no, you know, as I. Oh, she's shouldn't have been offsides on that. It's like you have to actually, you know, in baseball, the ball goes three legs. It's like, oh, that guy's a dumb ass. He should have been over. I went on for me. I went on for me at safety of the four year old playing soccer, and you know, there's not a lot of spacing in four year old soccer, so someone falls, they're getting clean added in the hand in arm and then and there's tears. So it's just want that to happen now less than five times in an hour. It's a big pile at some point I'm going to have, I think, maybe in February and have a special podcast where I rank of an have multiple parents involved. I'm gonna produce it ahead of time, and I'm a note power, rank the worst sports for parents for twelve to win for use blue. Yeah, because this is a topic that I've had with multiple parents including you. We've talked Cleopatra's lounge in Vegas. There's one clear number one, but I don't want to give it away. We should do that at Cleopatra's latch. It'd be great in, we'll have to convince Michael Gruber. That's a good idea. I do it and then then the women in a lot of the wives that were dragged along, we'll actually maybe have a good time. They would love that one. Lock it in on four thirty. You cannot give out some more losers on f s one. Against all odds is is usually we put that up on Wednesday. Podcast network, Wednesday night, ish, and then Jimmy came alive.

It was a wild week starting Thursday Steelers and the Carolina Panthers. A lot of football joy. How are you this morning? Good morning. Good morning. I've got kids. And I noticed this very early. When my son was six seven years old, you give them like a Snickers bar, and I saw the sugar high just be running around the house. Go two thousand miles an hour and I'm chasing him. And he's breaking stuff and breaking glasses breaking vases. And so there was no more Snickers in then after about an hour of that. He would have a crash and would be a bad mood, and he'd be feisty, ma'am. Six or seven years old, and he'd be crying. I'm like we gotta get sugar out of the house this morning. Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones Ron sugar high. And it always ends with a crash last night. It is asked her for the Cowboys. Yes. When they have a lead. Yes. When Zeke is running wild. Yes. They play a depleted defense. Yes. They look pretty good. Dak full Zsa. Rush for over one hundred seventy yards average over six yards. A rush had the ball for thirty three minutes. Yes. Dak Dak can look really good. When he's got the formula. Never forget, Tim. Tebow won six straight. Great defense. Great running game. Great kicker score and the teens. There are formulas average quarterbacks who you don't wanna pay a lot need a formula to win Dak needs Zeke to run wild. He needs the offense to be controlling the clock. He needs second four third and one for the play action to work. He needs to play with the lead, the weather has to be better than average or at least not chaotic and he's gotta have his defense plan. Well, so he doesn't get an shootout. Yes. That's when Dax can win that tau Tibo won six straight games. How Mark Sanchez got to the AFC championship twice. But franchise quarterbacks that you wanna pay one hundred and fifty. Million. Don't need a formula. They just need the ball and a little help. Okay. Because you're going to get in shoot outs in this league. If you got deck for the next five years Steelers patriots Rams chiefs chargers you're watching those teams this year the rules are all going offense all of them. And I love Dallas front seven defensively. I love their players. Really, really good. But those players the bears players all the great defense in the league. Can't stop anybody. Now. Once you face great quarterback right now, Dallas is on a sugar high because the formula was perfect. It's amazing. How often I understand fans getting fooled? But he's Jerry Jones being fooled by this. I mean Andy Dalton when he had the defense when he had all the good receivers. When he he wanna bunch games wanted division. Baker Mayfield yesterday only twenty times played with a lead played a bad defense had a great running support. Yes. A lot of guys in this league can win win. The formula is perfect. Carson Wentz last night. Didn't have a Pro Bowl, right? Tackle small woods. Their best running back. Jordan Mathews is a Goto receivers. He just got cut by the patriots and their defensive secondaries a nightmare. So he's playing from behind the whole game. And the Cowboys linebackers are much better athletes than the running backs behind him. That's what a franchise quarterback looks like Carson Wentz last night. Playing from behind with a beat up defense not getting support from his own line. That's what a franchise quarterback looks like even though he lost. But I saw this with Oklahoma City Westbrook wins the MVP sugar high sugar high signed him to a long term deal, then you're left with Westbrook. This is what the Buffalo Bills do every September when their quarterback plays. Well, sign him to a long term contract. Yeah. Then you're left with Ryan Fitzpatrick with an expensive long term contract. The sugar. High is always followed by a crash. It's always followed by a crash and the gap last night between went and Dak is huge give Dak playing from behind. Give Dax small would give Dak Jordan Mathews. Give Dak a secondary like Phillies. If you go to Dak Prescott career he's had about ten like nights or afternoons. We've gone. Wow, franchise guy and all ten it's been the same formula. It's not shootouts. No. It's Zeke is controlling the clock. Zeke's running for one hundred twenty five yards. Second fourth third in one. Go look at his great games. Looking great passer ratings zeke's having a game, zeke's control and the clock the play action pass works. But all last night. Really did if you're a cowboy fan all it did is guaranteed at Jerry Jones, flew back to Dallas on his private jet with Steven Jones and the whole family, and he was telling everybody I told you Dax the guy just out noodled Carson Wentz. Went to Philadelphia beat arrival that Prescott czar guy. Nah, he needs a formula last night. The formula was perfect. Carson Wentz was the only quarterback on that field. You wanna spend over one hundred million on? Let me shift gears to this. Now, I did say. On friday. I don't do this very much, and there are micro topics on this show, small ones and macro topics. Big one, I would call micro topics predicting games macro, topics. How does it affect the season? And the franchise I predicted on Friday eagle blow out. On a micro level. Oh, I was wrong. But on a macro level. I told you after the Super Bowl with Philadelphia. We're gonna come back, and I see this time and time again, I call it. The lottery winner syndrome in sports when people who are not used a wealth not used to celebrity not used to having an unending stream of parades in cash get it, then what to do with it. Jacksonville Atlanta Falcons. Carolina panthers. Philadelphia eagles. They're not used to getting Super Bowls. They're not used to getting two Super Bowls, and they're not used to winning Super Bowls. And once they win Super Bowls. They're flexing their flexing on social media. They're right in books. They're getting endorsements. They're getting shoe deals in Philadelphia off a bye that was it. You saw it last night. And since you're not used to winning Philadelphia. This is how it works. You're now twenty first in the NFL in points with Carson Wentz. Here's how it works. You win a Super Bowl or get to a Super Bowl. And you lose a couple of really good assistance and a couple of maybe coordinators. Oh, yes. New england. They have see lost Frank, right? John. The owner coach I'm dundy Filipo. Yeah. So you lose a couple of assistance, really good coaches, they leave. And then you lose a couple of players somebody overpays for your Super Bowl players. And then you have a first place schedule, and you become a target, and you kind of lose your edge players don't work out quite as hard in the off season. And what you get is this foreign five headed to the Superdome to take on the saints a cook, good luck with that. When cities and franchises that aren't used to winning big suddenly win big. It's the it's the lottery syndrome crap. Do I buy four homes or five to buy another sports car a third boat? More skis jet skis. And then you wake up one morning. And you're like, oh, I blew it. New england. Pittsburgh Green Bay. They're used to winning. Andy Reid wins. Every year. Drew brees. You just don't see the roller coasters with those teams and those players. I mean Aaron Rodgers in the win, you know, he he was winning on the bench with far, but he's winning now. Aaron Rodgers doesn't give you this. And Brady didn't give you this. And Andy Reid doesn't give you this because they're used to winning somebody told me this years ago. It may have been Trent Dilfer headline. He said everybody in athletics treats losing the same. They get pissed and they worked twice as hard. But everybody does not act the same after winning Winning's different winning gives you tension when he gives you money winning gives you endorsements. Everybody wants a selfie. Everybody wants an autograph and some people can't handle it. And when you haven't won and knew suddenly are the talk of the town hall. My you're buying a third boat. A sixteenth perish shoes another suit. And you don't wear the ones you have last night. I thought I was wrong on a micro level. I thought Philly off a bye here we go. Here we go. Jacksonville gave themselves a nickname Saxon Bill. We're good for an hour. New England doesn't have a nickname Pittsburgh Steelers. They're not. To saxon. Ville Steelers just the Steelers and they're just the patriots. And he's just Andy Reid. He's not storm in drew Brees. It's just drew Brees. And that's how winners do it. They're used to winning. They don't need jet skis to make him. Happy by the way. More bad news for the Philadelphia Eagles, really really bad news, an excellent player for them. Ronald Darby cornerback. Not like the eagles. Haven't had enough secondary injuries. It's unbelievable. He's out for the season tornado CEO four and five. Headed to the Superdome. I'm just going to go with my gut feeling on this. It won't be super coming up next. What to make of New England's loss? I mean, you watch that game. It really wasn't very close. It wasn't very competitive of the titans team that nobody ever can trust. Right. They look great that. And we're calling was right. We're calling was wrong on a Monday is forty five minutes away.

Geico dot com. So New England lost and was really manhandled by the titans upfront. This was fairly predictable. I have two thoughts on this. Once in a while. Let's start with the first one every year. There's somebody the patriots have beaten up on for years or there's a patriot connection and they come out and just get punched in the forehead last year. Miami Monday night football, they come out of several big wins and lay. A complete egg against the dolphin franchise. They have basically suffocated for the last fifteen years yesterday. It's Tennessee, Malcolm Butler, they let go of Dion Lewis. They let go of Mike Rachel's a former patriot earlier this year the Detroit Lions played their game of the year against of. Why would that be because the lion's head coach is Matt Patricia the student Bella checks, the mentor, you see this time and time again about every year. There's a game or two where there's a there's somebody. The patriots have let go of traded released. They play with passion. There's a coaching under study that gets a job and they're all dialed in for that. And in the end it never really matters because come January New England will win their division going away. Have you checked the standings this morning jets lost their awful Miami lost their awful buffalo one only because they're playing the jets? They're awful New England. We'll have a by and be hosting somebody in the AFC. Now does this game. Perhaps mean they'll play at Pittsburgh in the playoffs. They have before and one they'll play at Kansas City in the play offs. I'll take my chances with ballot. Check and Brady against Patrick Mahomes that part doesn't matter. But there was something yesterday that that I did notice once again gronk was out and gronk wasn't dressed and gronk was inactive and never forget that Bill Belichick wanted to trade gronk during the off season. Remember when gronk admitted it that he heard it any new it. They didn't want me New England. They happened and brings my quarterback. Wasn't going anywhere. Where Brady gronk admits it they tried to get rid of me so yesterday Dion Lewis. Malcolm Butler, Bella check got rid of them. So as a big game for them. But here's what's also interesting gronk has one touchdown all year. Grant can't stay healthy. And Bella check was right on gronk to it's over. He's the most overpaid player on that patriot roster. And it's not close New England. The two moves that Bella check push back on. He didn't want to give up Garoppolo. Bob Kraft stepped in. We're trading Garoppolo Tommy's my guy the second move that. Bella check wanted to make gronk can't stay healthy. We've gotta move on Brady stepped in gronk my guy. We can't make a move you watch this yesterday Bronx relevant. I don't even going into games. He playing is. He not who cares. They score the same without him Sony. Michelle, the rookie running back now is more important James white running back more important left tackle position, more important, Julian Edelman's, back more, important, frankly. Josh, Gordon, right now, his growth and development is more important the two instances where the owner in the quarterback. Have pushed back on Bella. Check. Tommy was mad. They let go Malcolm Butler. He wanted to keep grunk bolt. Ron display yesterday gronk was predictably hurt. Malcolm. Butler was Malcolm Butler after the game Dion Lewis, a former patriot. He was talking trash about that. Big win. Listen. I don't know if the prove anything, I know I could play I just had to let our team no doubt that these guys are beatable saw those guys can be physical with him that I'm having. That's what happened when you go cheap. You get to ask him. Dion. You average two point eight yard to carry and had eleven yards receiving you did not kick anybody's. You know, what Bella checks always been right? He was right on gronk. They're paying him a fortune. Eighth most important guy. Seventh on the team help fifth on the offense and wasn't about Dion Lewis yesterday. I wouldn't about Malcolm Butler that was about Giral, Casey and all those dudes upfront. They dominated the patriots offense of line, but the owner doubted Bill and the quarterback doubted Bill. And Tennessee's gloating over Bill come January one of those two teams will be playing and the other. We'll be watching joy Taylor. The news. Turn on the news. This is the heard line news. Hey, nice little win for the Lakers there last night since joining the Lakers Tyson Chandler has been extremely helpful in three straight games versus play one two three shakings first time the season last night against the hawks after LeBron dunk the winning basket with seconds ago after missing two free throws Chandler blockchain driving layup to preserve eight one seven six victory over the hawks. And here he is after the game. Two kids. That's LeBron responding to they asked him. What what are the bronze say to him after he bought trae Young's play up? What was your young thinking Tyson Chandler is a very big person? Yeah. Actually been playing then playing. Well, he's he's actually been impressive. But this was yeah. There's been such a influential addition for them, and he Tyson Chandler is a player that LeBron went to the front office and said we need a rim protector. Get us Tyson Chandler, by the way, everybody is criticizing LeBron's free throws. He struggled last night. Folks. Every great player in league history has a liability. Michael Jordan, never had great rained on his jumper. He only shot threes. Well, when the league moved it in then they moved it back, and Michael Michael didn't have range Kobe, by the way with a very difficult guy to play with became at the end of his career, vol Centric, Westbrook shack couldn't hit a free throw. Lebron's never been a great free throw shooter. It has been I never ever feel great at if LeBron line with twenty seconds left. I've never felt that you don't feel comfortable. But that's that's okay. Because Michael Jordan could never shoot three's until the league moved it in for two years. Michael shot him, then they moved it out. And Michael went back like twenty five percent again from threes that was his liability. Force some issue long range as actually if you watch the end of this. If you watch this the the rebounds Tyson takes two bigs outs, Atlanta really should have put their bigger lineup in to get the to get the rebound Tyson, tasers eggs out. And then opens it up for coups, meta get the rebounds. So that LeBron can get the dunk. This is obviously not the end of the game. This is here with with Tyson spot. But yeah, also LeBron this is why LeBron likes to play with Ren's Tyson isn't just the regular. Yeah. Center. He'd really is like a point guard. He's very vocal is Oakland practice. He's a leader. So that takes a lot of LeBron's play. All right. So Baker Mayfield. Arguably had his best game of the year did ending the Browns for game losing streak as they beat the falcons twenty eight sixteen at home he passed for season high three touchdowns only three incompletions and a rating of one fifty one point two. And here he is on how he was feeling yesterday. No. Not really. But when I woke up this morning, I was feeling pretty dangerous. Sly after a win. It's all right. You're allowed to be allowed to enjoy your win. We talked about formulas for Dak Prescott and how people get fooled on formulas. Baker had a great running game played with a lead against the terrible defense and owned by the way, how many times that he's throwing twenty which was tied for the fewest throws again. Can you just give him credit for very nice win? I'm not in the credit business. Visa again. We got fooled with Tibo. We get when when everything's right. You're playing a bad defense. They don't ask you to throw. Do you know Cleveland only at eight third downs? He never had third down. It was time that he grease to saying a nice game. In a nice win win the formulas perfect for him. Unfortunately, this is way Marvin indictment of Atlanta. What is Atlanta? Well, they're absolutely atrocious. Defensively they can't get people off the field on. They just can't get people off the field. But you can just take the ball against Atlanta and have six minute drive seven minute drive. That's been the problem on your. They got their a team that's been on crutches all year like from week to they've been all beat up. They can't be trusted. So finally the pats L yesterday from the titans thirty four to ten and there was a lot of bad blood from former patriots. We just played the on Lewis calling his former team cheap for not resigning him this off season. And here is Tom. Brady's response of that. It's hard to see great players go. And I know it's not the first time. It's happened has happened to a lot of guys, and I can understand that emotion. You know, I'd give them credit. They beat us when you win. You know, you could say a lot of things, but the reality of winning. We'll just take our lumps and try to learn from come out here and do a lot better job. And I understand everyone. Feels like they deserve more money, and they should be paid. I I have no problem with the is it wrong the pets Archie. So are they cheap or are? They frugal. People could say I'm cheap. But I'm a good temper. Okay, fine. That's that's fair. That's a fair description of that I I wouldn't necessarily call them cheap. But they they are not the type to give out big ridiculous contract. Which may be successful. I think it is. But the on Lewis is not in in the business to save the patriots money. So I have no problem with him being upset that he he feels like he earned a contract and look they want. So like Tom Brady said when you when you can talk I never blame the player for pursuing money, especially after a player gets a ring. Go get your money, right? But I'm going to defend the team not paying Dion Lewis a fortune schone. Michelle James, white are very good players in the NFL for a lot less money. Right. And it's not like the patriots are not losing like it's not like they're out here losing they lost yesterday that was a bad loss. But I I don't feel like they feel like they made a mistake by I get where deal. This is coming from you. You went to a joy Taylor the news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by. Heard lie. Nana read this commercial before I introduce the next guest because it has to do with clothing. And he is a sharp dressed, man. Don't be the guy in the room with a sloppy looking untucked shirt, go to untuckit dot com code her. Twenty percent off twenty five row retail locations across the country, untuckit dot com. G Q called it perfection. And with that a sharply dressed, man. Look at him today. Greg jennings. Look you. Look man, you look like a million dollars every time a million dollars. So I said to start the show. I hear you disagree. With me is that I got kids, and I learned very early with my son don't give them a Snickers because for the next hour. I'm a chased him around the house, and then he's gonna crash after an hour. He's gonna be crying and be cranky. And I see this all the time is that the Cowboys this morning are it's a sugar high. Everything was perfect for deck. Play with the lead running game time of possession. Third in one defense plan. Great game in the teens and Jerry's flying on his private jet last night, saying told John right? And I'm like, okay. But I've watched this league for forty years, the great ones wind shootouts and they play from behind when you were with Aaron Rodgers and you're trailing by fourteen entering the third. That's who will pay one hundred and fifty million to. Yeah. But you gotta understand this is when you go into a game every team has a formula. Every team has their keys to their success right in what we saw last night is the Dallas Cowboys formula that is the key to their success. They want to get out in front. They want us to stick with the run because that's their offense. That's what allows Dc Dc. Jack. Yeah. That's what allows Dak to be more emost efficient when he's not bearing the load of that often. Okay. So that's the Andy Dalton Alex Smith way a hundred percent. It's in listen, Blake boiler way. Alex, Alex Smith has won a lot of games in San Francisco. Kansas city. He's doing it now with the Redskins. It's affective. What is I don't think? Now, can can they sustain this? I don't think they can sustain it. And he don't not in the NFC. You can't sustain an NFC because the defense is are too good. And by the way, other teams are going to put up a lot of points. Again. I'm not saying Todd Gurley doesn't help Jared Goff. I'm not saying that. But what you're telling me is that Dax going to need a back this substantial to succeed. What I'm saying is this is what Jerry Jones has gotten himself into when we saw back. Prescott. And we saw Zeki oh L in year. One. The reason why Dak Prescott was so successful. He didn't get sacked. And he was able to hand the ball off too, easy Q Elliott, and he was able to average almost four or five yards of pop. Right. And he wasn't axed to do above and beyond year to Ezekiel Elliott is out for six. He's acts now to do above and beyond. What the call of duty was coming in. Now, the expectation has been set because of the year one that he had and we wanna see him progressively grow. But this is the Dallas Cowboys this is who they are. They understand our offense goes as easy Cheol Elliott, go. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think you're right. I just think I'm not paying one hundred twenty five million for that formula. They know that too. I don't think they will have to. Okay. But what happens? When Dax agent comes in and says, okay, I look at all these Matt Stafford numbers. Matt Stafford doesn't have a signature win in his career. He's gonna want twenty five million a year. What are you gonna give him? Let me tell you something. Would you take Matthew Stafford over Dak Prescott? Yes, exactly you that is not even you can't even say what about Mets that? No. You're not Matthew Stafford number one because he he can come back. He can put the game on his shoulders, and he can make things happen in the fourth quarter, which he tends to what do you think Dak is going to accept a deal? Look, I it's almost like that franchise a lot of money. Let me tell you something. He he accepted a lot when he sided with Jerry. And he he had his back. He understands Jerry has his back. He's he's basically taking a home town discount. You think he'll take a discount one hundred percent? If he goes anywhere else. They're not gonna pay him who's going to pay Dak Prescott outside of the Dallas Cowboys. Not a lot of takers there. My point. He's he's best where he is. Yeah. You're probably right. And that's amazing. That's the standard for the Dallas Cowboys today. Can you imagine the Lakers celebrating a Pacific Division title, the Yankees, celebrating a wildcard spot Notre Dame or Alabama celebrating the holiday bowl? You're telling me the Dallas Cowboys like listen, we found a guy. I think you're right. We found a guy. He is the next Andy Dalton. You told me that that's that's standard. I mean, honestly, we're knocking Andy dawn any Dalton has had a great year. I watched yesterday any Dalton lost me fifty dollars. He did he got a tour game yesterday. Andy Dalton can play. Better thrower, then back Prescott. No, whatever, I'm not. I'm just not. I'm not one hundred percent sold on that Prescott without easy. Okay. That's fine. So we talked about the Cowboys. I'm going to take a break. I want to get to the Super Bowl hangover. I want to get to a theory on the Packers a well dressed, man. Look at you, look at you on television. You're you're made for TV. You know, what I think? So I think guess something there. Yeah. I was not going to keep you for two segments. But you look so good. I mean that that stop it. All right, Greg Jennings around the corner, be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific on Fox Sports radio f s one and the iheartradio app. Tar shopping can be confusing. Terms dealer price invoice list price. Here's what's not confusing newer used saved three grand off MS RPM truecar Greg Jennings. Joining us over a decade pro bowler Super Bowl rings. So I want to talk about the Philadelphia Eagles. I said and I predicted they would blow blow up the Cowboys this weekend. I was way off Carson Wentz. It's funny. So they win the Super Bowl and lane. Johnson. Had this quote that drove me insane. Yes. It has. Okay. The quote was hey, I would rather win one Super Bowl half. Yeah. Then win five. Well, congratulations. That's going to be it because I'm watching him yesterday. And off a bye. Is it fair to say now too many books too many endorsements lost their edge? What did you see? No. You will never get me to agree with you on this in in the reason, why is number one. They came into the season on crutches like your quarterback your top receiver offense. You came in wounded, even though you're on top you won the Super Bowl you came into the season half of what you really are in. So they've never been able to bounce back. Then you look at them last night their secondary. Oh, it's a mess there. The pleaded no they just lost Darby year. They're kidding me. You can't you can't win for losing right now. It's like they they keep getting is going having guys go down. Whereas last year guys were there to stop. But the season you lose Hicks. You lose Peters. You lose Carson wins. But they had already had it rolling right now. It's been a grind it's in. When you start off a season in a grind. And you're behind the eight ball when it comes the health is going to be an uphill battle the entire time. Oh, it has been listened to secondary's a mass. They have to play from behind. Listen against Carolina's a prime example, they dominate Carolina for three quarters, and then they play conservative and Cam has his greatest quarter of the year because he had to throw their secondary is a mess, and they, you know, in the NFL, it's not you don't have to be great everywhere. But you can't be in chaos anywhere. Philadelphia's in utter chaos in the second. So did you ever see the TV show friends? I did Ross and Rachel and here's what the Green Bay Packers have become they become the TV show friends by about the eleventh year, Rachel slept with everybody. Ross was wearing me out. They were still funny and drink coffee. But in the end I'd seen everything and there was just better shows on television. So yesterday, you had all these games on TV at the same time and the Rams and the CR that the raiders and the chargers I have the Packers and the dolphins. And I gotta be honest. They don't get me to a TV anymore. When the Steelers didn't play yesterday it felt like less of a day. I'm watching yesterday. I watched the game with them. And I'm like I wanna see Mahomes. I wanna see Brees. I wanna see Goff there. There are so many compelling young quarterbacks out there and the veterans now like breeze or planted a higher level than Aaron this is this is I've seen Rachel and Ross. This is what it is the monkeys. Now, remember on the monkey came on the show. You knew the show was over on French when they brought an animal on a show the show's officially over. I Green Bay's like it's just they don't feel special anymore. This is the problem. I have with what you're saying. Because Aaron Rodgers has been so great in years past. We expect him to be great despite any and every situation. He's clearly not one hundred percent clearly not one hundred percent. But he has helped in what we're seeing is an Aaron Rodgers that is willing to throw the ball away. More going to set the record for throwaways this year. But it's not all bad because there he's getting help. He's going down. If he feels like he's going to get sacked. He's going down. He's protecting himself. Again. I think why you're not as interested is because it's not this Aaron Rodgers show. But let me remind you there was two weeks ago. They were out here in LA and everyone wanted to watch that game. Specifically the last couple minutes why because we all wanted to see what number twelve was gonna do Hetty gotten opportunities to do. Let me remind you what happened. They lost another big TV game. They did lose. They did lose. I understand that. But for you to say, they're they're like friends is there almost if I. They were still a good television show, but they were better stuff on television. I'm not there's a lot more flashier guys right now because in Rogers he doesn't have his same ability his ability to run away from. So you notice that? Oh, yeah. He knows he's not going to get out there. And just say, you know, what my knee is bothering just because I don't have the brace on doesn't mean. I'm one hundred percent because that's not what viewers want to hear. That's not what fans wanna hear. That's when no one cares. But you don't wanna tell the defense that. Anyway, exactly. But I mean, he we we all know it. He's not one hundred percent. But he is the job is this a contending team as long as he's at quarterback. They have a chance are how deep they go pins on. If Erin own's continues to do it seems to me the the good teams in this league, are depending primarily on veteran players the Steelers Big Ben Antonio Brown to Castro on the offensive line breeze. If you look at Philip rivers. In some of their veteran players pound the center when when I look at Green Bay it's Erin in MandA they need rookie Aaron Jones to play well and young this young receiver play well and that rookie corner play. Well, it feels like it's Erin, and there's a little bit of babysitting going on here. But for me, I like that I want to see other players step up because your quarterback is getting older every single year. He's he's injured. He's clearly not one hundred percent. Can we get some help in the building? They're getting they're getting help. There's nothing wrong with that. We're calling was right. We're calling was wrong. Top of next hour. Greg Jennings is joining us. So I'm sitting there and I'm watching the Chicago Bears. And I don't even know if our guys have any tape of the bears because we we're gonna talk about different teams today and. I don't love the bears offensive personnel. I'm not a Trubisky guy like their personnel. You're gonna tell me those running backs are great Matt Nagy is making those running backs. You what what you like Robinson the receiver? Do you think I like Robinson alongside of Gabriel alongside of the tide in? They have a lot of pieces. Are they can throw at are. You sure they do with the absolute ornament. They have a lot of guys know they have a lot of pieces in then they have met Nagy who knows how to blend those pieces to go get. I mean, I'm sorry. But when I watched Trubisky when I watch these guys now when I watched the candidate chiefs, those are stars don't Kareem hunt. Travis Kelsey tyreek hill Sammy walk. It's I don't are. I get you you by Chicago. I do buy Sikado because they're doing it. And they. They don't have the stars. They have rope. When you watch the San Antonio Spurs. Did you see a bunch of stars? You have a lot of ro players in Gregg Popovich got it done. Correct. That is who the bears are. Right. Not. I shouldn't say that. That's who they are because San Antonio special. But the bears have a lot of good solid players. And they have the most important piece tell me TriNet Trubisky is Matt Tim Duncan. No, not at all. I'm not saying you're saying, no, I did not say who say are Khalil Mack is the Tim duct mature Bisky is Manu at thirty seven. I don't know. I watched. Here's what's interesting about the NFC. We came into this year in our feeling was NFC is packed. I got Washington leading a division. I got Chicago leading division. Tell you. That's tell you something that last year we sat here and I watched the bears play the Packers last year. And I watched their interior lump. They were solidified on both sides of the of the line. Yeah. Interior wise often it's of line defensive line. There is you was quarterback skill positions. Yes. On both sides. They've and they've gotten that. They've had great play defensively in the secondary. They've had even better play offense in their skill positions. What's wrong with this bears team just being good? No. I mean, listen all private in my top ten. I'm not saying they're not good. I love their defensive front. But one of the things that's happened football that you can't deny anymore. And it's just the way it is the quarterback is still. The most important piece the second most important piece in football. Now is the play caller Patrick Mahomes. Without Andy Reid is not this good. There's no way. He's this. Good. I'm not going to disagree with that in because the the scoring in this lease through look at look at Andrew luck now with Frank Reich. I'm glad you mentioned that because everybody again going back to eagles. You have Carson Wentz who had two years where Frank right and his his quarterback code gone. They're gone. So that's another reason why the eagles. But yes, Andrew luck with Frank. Right. It makes a difference. Sean Payton drew Brees. Yeah. I mean, he does feel like Nagy is doing about sixty five seventy percent of the work which Bisky in. He should he should be. Because when you look at Patrick Mahomes in Mitchell Trubisky. Oh, come on. Not. There's no exactly you'll level boo. Completely completely separated by skill level. But were they were they can draw. Closer is the play caller. You got one guy who's been tutored by man that guy every read it. I look in the division leaders in the AFC. I get Andy Reid in the chiefs. You look at the chargers. I get the Steelers patriots the Houston Texans. Got stars everywhere. I look at the NFC. I got why shington I got shit. Chicago. A bunch of men. So you think that the AFC teams are not more? I I have to it together. Think about it. We're calling was right. We'll call nerves wrong is next seen about. She didn't like I I gotta go. This is the heard hour to wherever you may be. And however, you may be listening live in Los Angeles. Iheartradio, Fox Sports radio and right here f s one joy Taylor is joining me where Colin is right. We're calling is wrong in five minutes from now. Great to have you on a Monday pack today. Greg jennings. Stop by Trent Dilfer, Tony Gonzales, Chris Bruce, Arden, fifteen minutes, Lakers one last night. So we got a lot of things going on. How are you joy doing great standards are thing that you gotta keep high standards. I have a lot of people in my family that were in the restaurant business culinary business. And you ever go to a restaurant for years and years you like it, and then the chef leaves they don't pay them enough money in the chef leaves and you go to a couple of times not quite as good. And then you go to come more times. It's not quite as good. Then you stop going to the restaurant. Well, you lost me as a customer, you'll the restaurant that day they lowered their standards and went cheap and didn't pay for the top. Chef is the day. It was over not the year and a half later when you've lost thirty five percent of your customer base. The more discerning eaters. Now, you lost it the day decided to go cheap to me. The Dallas Cowboys are not going to be a relevant football team for the next ten years because they've lowered their standards. They're excited about this morning. That's it that you won against a depleted Philadelphia. Team you one when the formula was perfect for Dak Prescott controlled the clock. Six yards or rush. Zeke ran the ball your defense. Suffocated? Carson Wentz you've been to eight Super Bowls. You've won five star back Aikman. Jimmy johnson. Landry Parcells Jason Garrett, you're fine with it doesn't matter. What you did last night? You have I live in Los Angeles the same things happening here. USC football now is five and five and there are people actually discussing whether or not to get rid of the coach and the staff. Are you kidding me? You can't be Cal at home. I mean, you've already lost your program. It's over you. Once you decide to go cheap once you or okay with average you've. Lost the rest of it's just shrapnel. I mean, it's just it doesn't really matter. I mean Dak Prescott is twentieth in passer rating. This is by the way with a great back with a way above average offensive line. And the defense is good enough to give you decent field position. Twentieth. Passer rating twenty-second completion percentage twenty eight yards per game twenty fifth in yards per attempt and tied for twenty second in touchdown passes with Sam darnold who didn't play. Right now, you're a ten seed in the NFC in cowboy fans are celebrating where the standards like this is the Dallas Cowboys and because you wanna game against a depleted team in the formula was perfect to win you played with the lead. You're running backs were crushing Zeke was amazing and you control the clock and you play. That's that's your standard. Let it is Philadelphia. I told you this is a vision game they end it's a must win. It was a must win game for them. But I'm Erin cowboy fans like they're like popping corks today. No. There's no reason to celebrate. You should you should if you are a good football team able to go on the road and winning division game. Would would seriously does Duke celebrate getting into the second round of the tournament. Does alabama. Celebrate winning the Citrus Bowl. It depends on how you define success. Well, again, when your standards here in you, let it slightly road. And slightly erode and slightly a road, and the restaurant buys cheaper, Brad and doesn't get the freshest produce in the second rate fish, and all of a sudden you wake up and you're like a year and a half later, a thirty year crowd is gone. Now, you lost the day, you made a decision, and the owner of the restaurant were gonna go cheap, your standards were gonna lower our standards that is largely if you will get football in America, the difference between the haves and have nots standards. Brady Hoke did not accomplish enough to ever get the Michigan job Jim Harbaugh. The day. You hired him. You raise the standards of Michigan football. He had been to a Super Bowl Brady Hoke had not proven. He was worthy of Michigan today. You hired him. We're lowering our standards they hired Jim Harbaugh. We are now raising our standards like I'm sorry. But that win for Dallas. You have not beaten a team with a winning record. You're foreign five popping corks today. What happened to Dallas? All right. Every Monday at this time where Colin was right where Colin was wrong. Here we go where Colin was right. The raiders haven't scored a touchdown in nine quarters. And they scored six points off a off a bye, okay. Ten days repair six points. I never bought into Jon Gruden. I think he's a fantastic television analyst. And I always thought he was a solid coach not spectacular. He's had twelve quarterbacks in his career one has popped rich Gannon. If I had twelve shows and one was decent. It's probably due to the guests. I had not to me why we keep giving Gruden all all this love for inheriting. Tony Dungy's defense and beating team in the Super Bowl that he had coached the new the playbook a year earlier. I don't get it. This team's amass. I keep hearing. He's an offensive genius. Derek Carr has badly regressed. And the guys they drafted offense. And guys I don't see stars where Colin was raw blazing five was trash one win three losses and a tie. And I was lucky to get to that. First of all, I deserve total. Scorn, I picked Andy Dalton over drew Brees. Shame on me. I guaranteed. Philadelphia would win. Shame on me. Now, I am twenty nine nineteen into on the year. So we have a very good record. It was our first losing week of the year. Thank God for Andrew luck. And thank God for the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson played his butt off. And kept it close. But a disgusting week of betting. My me where Colin was right? Andrew luck for the first time in his career has an offensive coach and has a good offensive line. And what do you know, he is? Tearing it up yesterday the colts who don't have six guys who would start for the Jaguars outside of quarterback. Beat Jacksonville, Andrew luck. You gotta give Chris battle the GM credit. He hired the right coach he is rebuilt. This offense of line in two years. He still has a below average receiving core. He still has below average running backs and that defense is the pass rush. They did have in the first month has totally evaporated. But he does have protection up front. I do like their offense of line. That's at top fifteen top twelve offensive line and lock is putting up massive numbers for the first time in his career. Andrew luck has two things health and help and I still contend they will make a wildcard spot where Colin was wrong. Yeah. This Todd Bowles thing in New York. It is a dumpster fire, and I feel bad for these young talented defensive coaches, Steve Wilks and Todd Bowles. They're like the flip phone of of communication, no creativity. No, juice. No in. Energy. Listen, it looked like the jets quit half the stadium emptied out. It's not Sam darnold, folks. The GM needs to go as well. They have no offense of talent. I've never seen a team. They don't have an elite receiver. They don't have an elite back. They have tight end who should be two or three and a team like the colts. I they just don't have any players. Now, they do have a great safety. Leonard Williams is good bulls has done a nice job on the defensive end in special teams. But you know, it just doesn't work when you're stadiums. Emptying out when your team quits the game is so unfair to young defensive coaches Matt Nagy the game is built for him, Todd Bowles. The game is not built for him. You got to go get somebody to help Sam darnold or you'll become the colts. You're gonna waste three or four years with Andrew lock and get him hurt where Colin was right? According to the New York Times, Houston Rockets are already ten games into the year bailing on Carmelo Anthony. I've never in my career been more right on a topic than Carmelo. I never bought into him. I don't think he's a good teammate. I don't think he's coach -able. He has a bizarre delusional belief on what he is. And what he really is. There's never a day. I bought into him. And do you know what Greece fire you have to be to be ten days into a deal in an organization like we just gotta get you out of the room. They're now sitting him. They don't wanna let him he didn't want. Let him dress for games. This has been I like their Maury. I didn't like this move not many of us like this move. And Carmelo is what he's always been just not a good guy in the room. And now his skills regress oh badly. They don't even want him in the room where Colin was raw said before the season. I thought the big ten was closing the gap on the SEC. I am wrong. The gap is still. Mendes. Northwestern is already clinched a spot in the big ten championship gang. Northwestern was winless out of conference they lost Akron. They lost the Duke que they couldn't win a game out of conference. They played. They've played Notre Dame and got rolled. This team's going to be in the big ten championship game. I've watched northwestern. Play a half dozen times. They have a great coaching staff. And I think one marginal NFL player. I thought the gap was going to close Ohio states, a mess. Michigan state. Can't throw the football outside of Michigan's defense, which is really really really good this conference. I mean, I watched big ten football this weekend. I felt like I was in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight where Colin was right? I've said this now everybody's in on the celebrations for the NFL. And I know why they did it. I get it. They want the social media love but yesterday second quarter close game. Tyreek hill goes into the stands gets a penalty goofing off with the camera players need to be coached. Give an inch. They'll take a mile. I know everybody loves this all the progressives on social media think this is so oh, it's great except for it's the second quarter and got a penalty. And again at the end of the game. It's fine. You don't care but ask Andy Reid what he thought about this. Players need to be coached. Let the fans have a little fun. It's hard to score touchdowns and fifteen yard penalty. 'cause you can't like a grownup and the ball goes, spike. It took to spike it that's creative. I think it's I hate it in the middle of a game second quarter. We'll yeah. That's when you score touchdowns in the middle of the game everybody. Everybody on Twitter. Oh, this is awesome. Never forget Twitter. Donald Trump wouldn't get a vote soccer is bigger than the NFL the NBA's overtaking the NFL remember on Twitter, who's popular and who's really popular are two different things Twitter over this. But I thought it was funny. I thought it was ridiculous where Colin was raw Mitch Trubisky in a game this year threw six touchdown passes and yesterday through four I don't get it. This everybody loves Sean McVeigh matinee maybe the greatest coach in the history of the league. I don't know how they're doing this. I mean, the league is you're telling me the league is so offensive that Mitch Trubisky in light it up. You know? I mean, I gotta give the kid credit. I just didn't see it. I thought he was a listen. He started one year in college. He couldn't win and job as junior year college. I just didn't see it at all. I remember being in Hawaii with my family. I said I'm going to stay in and watch Mitch Trubisky play. 'cause everybody's telling me he could go number one. And I watched the game in college at Carolina. I'm like. I'm not sure he starts for half the ACC. That's it. And he is lighting it up. Congrats to Mitch Trubisky. Where Colin was right. I told you Sam darnold gonna leave USC and your going to see what USC football is right now. They can't score. They can't win at home. They can't beat mediocre teams at home. They can't move the ball. They can't run. They can't throw their now five and five, and that's five and five in the pack twelve which as a conference isn't even in the same class right now is the big twelve the big ten the SEC five and five in the pack. Twelve is awful. This is a conference then didn't win a bowl game last year. Did they I mean, you can say what you want about Sam darnold, when's the last time USC couldn't run the football and couldn't score. How about we start with never? They are a mess since Sam darnold left where Colin was wrong. Listen in the last month. Baker Mayfield nine touchdowns to interceptions and he's had to deal with some coaching chaos. You gotta give Baker Mayfield some credit. Listen, always said if you give them the right component, you give them a running game. Give them a little protection. He is an accurate thrower of the football. That's why I said as much as he drives me crazy. He'll never be a bust. Now, I think is ceiling is much more. Remember case keenum won thirteen games with the Vikings. When you give case keenum the perfect situation a running game good receivers. Case keenum one thirteen games. But I gotta give Baker credit. He made a really nice play yesterday. Scrambling out of the pocket through a dime down. The field deserves credit in the last month. He's gotten rid of you know, he's gotten rid of some of the silliness and the nonsense again. He's he's too cocky for me, not my Cup of tea. I think things have to be aligned perfectly in Atlanta's defense is trash, but he does his credit where Colin was right? Well, I said before the season in the NFL bet the overs. Matt Barkley yesterday. Got a team into the forties. Two teams this week scored in the fifties. Big Ben in the Steelers and drew Brees the bears mostly with being see players and Mitch Trubisky are scoring thirty regularly. We've got five teams. Now think about this averaging thirty point five teams and four others really close. I really felt coming into the year that the NFL by flipping the catch will ask yourself this. How many times did you watch a play? And there was a nebulous catch and they allowed the catch. There was one in the Philadelphia game. But Nelson Aguilar, the NFL has decided when in doubt give them the cash, and that is not a little thing that has resulted in a lot more touchdowns than field goals and extended drives and tire defenses. We said before the year watch all these numbers in offense go through the roof with the catch rule being flipped. It has. I thought yesterday six or seven times there's anything that's in doubt. Now just give him a catch. And for the record. I'm for it. Football is better with more offense, not less Chris Broussard around the corner. Well, well, well, LeBron the Lakers have a winning record. Well, well, well, the rockets are imploding, well, well, well, Jimmy Butler the Sixers can Philadelphia now win the east. What's the what are the Celtics? Taking this morning after that trade Chris Bruce are joining us. Tony Gonzales, Trent Dilfer, a lot of show left tomorrow. Wisconsin faces eight at six thirty pm eastern than Wednesday. Reigning champs. Villanova face the Michigan wolverines in a rematch of last year's national championship game at six PM eastern. The gavitt tipoff games sponsored by Jeep only on f s one and the Fox Sports at by the way, dukes best program in the country villas Villanova now. Second Kentucky third Kansas fourth Villanova has leapfrog Kentucky in terms of getting it done in March. They really have Jay right front of the show. Awesome. Chris Bruce are joining us. So it's an NFL Monday. But there are a couple of things here. There was a massive trade Saturday in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is now in Chicago, not happy goes to Minnesota, not happy now goes to Philadelphia in my takeaway is listen, man. I understand moving around in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is now in his third team in a very short time. Is this the move? We think is great for Philadelphia. Or do we have potential firework shows here, that's the great look. Jimmy Butler is a tremendous player both sides of the floor. But I'm not so sure Minnesota didn't win this straight. Okay. You got shooting. Covington is a very good two way player defense. He's tough long spreads the floor because he could shoot the three Sarge consumer shoot two three and Karl Anthony towns is game had declined. Yes. There's no answer buts about it. I don't know how I think the personal stuff was overblown with him in Butler. Not that there wasn't something there, but his play declined completely. So now he's going to be back. The pecking order is set. And I think they may be a better team Philadelphia on paper. It's fine. The problem is you have no shooting JJ, Rettig smart. Really? You're only shooter needs to start put Foltz on the bench. Yeah. No. I mean full is a bus. Here's my whole thing about the process and Philadelphia Nerlens Noel Okeafor right Carter Williams. These guys are boss or massive underachievers. I love Simmons and Embiid, but I hear that don't get along. You don't have any shooting in shooters league. The Lakers haven't missed on anybody in two years, but they don't have a cool nickname. Right. This whole thing with Butler Simmons and Embiid to me feels like three egos. Well, that's a great point. Because I think there's two ways that I'm skeptical. I hope it works. I love Embiid and Simmons, and I would like nothing more than to be playing relevant basketball in late may and June. But Butler wants to be the man. Okay. Can you give me the third guy on that team? Now hitting be the second leading score. Right. Are only the curve is the leading score of his close we him. And b but the order is Embiid and Simmons first and then Butler Kenny handle that number one number two. In a lot of cases column we see Carmelo Anthony. Your game is your game and Jimmy Butler is relatively ball dominant. He's. A decent three point shooter breeze out of three, you know, really three point shooter. So the floor is not going to be spread. How I just don't know if I see the fit I don't mind Philly doing and if I'm Philly, here's my eye. I'm doing I like how right I sit back, and I watched this if it's clearly not working I may trade Butler in February. Okay. Or I play it out and see. But I just sit back and watch the experiment to see how it works. But my keepers are Embiid and Simmons, and then I'll see how it works with Butler. Okay. So Colli Leonard goes to a good team out east and then Jimmy Butler good player goes to a team out east the east is way better. And you know, what I think when I wake up outside of Golden State that number two spot in the west. It's wide open. Chris Houston's amass okay, sees dysfunctional. Who knows what Minnesota is New Orleans has one guy. He'll eventually. Leave Portland's got limitations. I look at Golden State. Granted you keep everybody keeps telling me LeBron. There is no way coli out of the west Jimmy out of the west. I looked the second third. Best teams in the league or Toronto in Milwaukee. Okay. And the wet if I Magic Johnson or LeBron James I am thinking we should be the second best team in the west. We go state. Okay. They are what they are. We are can be better than anybody else in the west. That's what they should be thinking. And that's why the pressure was put on Luke Walton and to Luke's credit. They've turned it around. Look pretty good. But look look at the audit teams like you say Portland's got their wards. Denver doesn't have a real superstar Yokich is great. But he's tended. If he doesn't take over new Utah is what it is New Orleans. You mentioned it none of them have LeBron James and LeBron has talent around him. They just have to figure out the best way to do it. And I think the best way like last night. You saw them in the game. Lebron Josh heart Kouzmin Ingram and Tyson Chandler that's their lineup. Well, some sometimes it's going to be like my point is this the days of what getting upset that Lonzo didn't play in the fourth over. Okay. Lonzo is not a part of the nucleus. He could beat the nucleus open. You got LeBron? And then the other two spots in the nucleus are open fight for it. If Lonzo earns it great if he doesn't find we're moving on because it's not about developing Lonzo anymore is about Lonzo needs to earn a spot. If he's gonna be a star, then be a star. But if not we'll go with the other guys, you know, some nights it'll be Rondo finishing a game some nights, it'll be Lonzo. Sometimes it'll be neither 'cause they had a point guard on the floor. He was named. Lebron james. This is why you always say this game is your game. I heard this from you when he was entering the team. And I thought a lot about it. It was hey, LeBron's going to go to LA and have to play off the ball. But gave me she game. And I'm why here's what the funny thing about LeBron in LeBron's career. This happens twice a year every year. Even now he loses confidence in his jumper. And what LeBron does to get? It back is giving the ball. Let me go to the basket score. Get my confidence up and slow. It happens every year. Sometimes it's happened in the middle of a series. You know, what else you're right? And you're right. You're game. Is the people around him were telling me he wants to play off the ball. He'll play off the bye, okay? But you say your game is a game. Here's the thing. The broad don't really know how to play off the book. I mean, honestly, that's the way he came up in the way he played when he's off the ball. It's every blue moon. He's on the block every blue moon. He's on the elbow mostly when he's off the ball. He's standing on the wing just why not even being a decoy. That was the way it was in Cleveland. Lebron don't play off the ball that don't go. Yeah. It's okay. You know? But look, I wouldn't be mad if you just made him the point guard period, but he never he doesn't wanna do that. But some parts of me wishes. He would should Miller retire. Yes. Thank you. He should retire. Because and mellow needs to understand this. There is no shame in falling off in your fifteenth and sixteenth season. Most got Magic Johnson. Larry Bird didn't even play fifteenth and sixteen season. Michael Jordan's fifteen season was in Washington where he wasn't making the playoffs like met. You look at that draft class. The only player that's still great or relevant is LeBron. Wade is not relevant. Bosch is retired cow Corvers cow, whoever Nick collison, just retired David west is retired. I retire retire. Otherwise, there is there are people. He's beginning. Look he's going to be a first ballot hall of Famer in my book. But it's getting stained a little like Iverson went out badly like this. I did not stain his legacy because he was icon. Ick. Mellows great hall of fame on in that I cannot I like Iverson. No. And so go out now before you keep going from team to team if people start remembering you like this rather than the great player? You were. All right. His name is Chris Broussard, he and rob Parker weekdays seven to ten eastern PM on Fox Sports radio, and I heart radio great senior on a Monday greybeard here. All right joy with the news. Turn on the news. This is the third line news big win for the Cowboys yesterday. I mean seriously. I listen to everybody skips going crazy. And she wanted Shannon, say, what's he going crazy to celebrate the winds they're hard to come by these days. You know, they beat the defending champion eagles. They did division rival. Yeah. He'd been playoff hopes alive. Certainly and to go along with Ezekiel Elliott's big game. Fifty one yards and touchdowns act Prescott pass for two hundred and seventy yards touchdown and no interceptions. Let's right. And after the game tack was more looking at the future rather than dwelling on this game. Yeah. We've just got to use us as momentum and continue to grow. This is a winning team. And this is great. When you go on the road and wins first time doing that this year. So it's important for us just to fill that until that that energy in the locker room to make sure we don't forget that their next game is at Atlanta, and he will have another very good game. Is defense is just again on crutches. It's done. It's over there's nothing they can do about it. So Dak will play very well. But it's you know, again, I'll go back to see him again. It's Dax got everything lined up and he plays with the lead in the running games rolling. He can be very efficient quarter. But you really want to see Dak do something amazing. Something Rogers something Brady like under pressure coming from behind everything not being in place is what you're saying. But I do understand what doc is saying. Also, what did I say before every every journey begins with the first step, right? So you you do have to hold onto this winning minimum. They have an opportunity to go to Atlanta four or four. Five or not out of it. So while overall there's not so much optimism surrounding Dak Prescott. This is this is the now you're in the position to prove everyone wrong. So we'll see. All right. So I've makers are expecting fireworks next week in Mexico City where the Kansas City Chiefs and LA Rams will meet on Monday night at a Saudi Alaska and the super book at west gate Las Vegas on Sunday opened the chiefs Rams game over under sixty four. Yeah. Which if it holds it'd be the highest since nineteen eighty six the chiefs and Rams of oath nine and one the chiefs are second in scoring in the NFL flooring averaging three thirty five point three points per game. And the Rams are averaging thirty three point five points per game. And the Rams are currently two and a half point favorite. I like Kansas City in that game. You know, it's funny when you live in a city and. I watch. I watched parts of every game. And I watched yesterday I watched like four games in their entirety. And then the rest of the games you watch a lot of the five game. Because I watched Steelers Carolina. I have watched every Rams game. And Tony Romo said this yesterday. And he was right. The brilliance to the Rams is their simplicity. They run about you know, they've got seven plays and they run them out of thirty sets. And they all look the same. And they're just terrific at this. But I gotta tell you. It does feel like Cooper cups now out for the year, very valuable receiver. And it does feel like. The league is there are some limb. I like Robert woods, but he's not as gifted like their tight end. Not as good as Kansas City there. They don't have anybody that runs like cheetah, Patrick, Mahomes is the golden arm tyreek hill. So like when I look at Kansas City. Icy superstar players Travis Kelsey Kareem hunt. You just can't with the Rams. I see a lot of Todd Gurley. Mcveigh's very smart. But it feels like the league is at least aware of a lot of what Seattle had a chance to win that game yesterday. They played a bullet. Hard vote-on full time. Right. Seattle lot either. I think the difference is that the chiefs have this the flair and over the top excitements, and they're the energy and the Rams are. Just consistent. The Rams are a very you think the Rams are flashing their power running. They're not really not Kansas City is frighteningly. Like when I look at Pittsburgh in Kansas City and New Orleans sometimes I'm like, oh, God, you just have to be able to really crush your fingers more than that. Because the Rams are going to give. I mean, the chiefs are going to give points because their defense is still shaky. But the one thing to watch out for in this game, though, it's interesting is that the elevation at a Saudi OS is very high at seven thousand two hundred eighty feet that's two thousand feet higher sea level than Denver stadium, by the way. Do you know where the Rams training this week? Denver smart. Yeah. The Rams two thousand feet higher than that. Yeah. So the Rams have gone, and if you've ever gone to Denver by the I remember being in Lake Tahoe few years ago. And I walked up stairs. And I was gassed like when the Rams have gone. I'm not sure we're Kansas City is training. Maybe there in Denver to both teams requested to play the Broncos this week. Before they had to go to the league tonight of. Okay. I know the Rams are training in Denver this week Kansas City might be there as well. And that's Mark because that elevated is gonna play a factor finally several players and members of the rockets coaching staff believed that Carmelo Anthony is played his final game for the franchise. It's expected to end up to he played only ten games thirteen four point four points, five point, four rebounds and shooting forty percents from the floor. He's been away from the team for two games. What's been has been described as an illness? Some say he didn't join the rockets on their trip to Denver. I mean you over here. Here's the interesting thing about Carmello. And I feel like the rockets they couldn't pay pay a reason those a huge loss for them. I feel like the rockets just didn't they just put a piece there to replace say, and our ISA, and it, and it wasn't the right piece that they needed and Carmelo is getting you know, is going to get. A lot of pushback basically, having okay seeks everyone was landing in there. And now he's at the rockets, and it's like you said you think you should retire. I think they do end up letting him go. The Spurs would be an interesting landing place for half. Can we say this fifteen theories never been in great shape? He's never been in grinder in the weight room. He's never it's over here. Yeah. He goes. I write the Spurs are an organization that can can pretty much utilize anyone because they they instead of trying to change the player is they use the player what they're best at now. Carmel still has some left. It's just not with rockets every every team doesn't need every star everything doesn't work there. The rockets are what were they last year? Okay. Let here. The situation that doesn't work for him. I had a a source inside the NBA that said LeBron that Carmelo basically gives you about one night a week won't practice? Well, if your backup four, then that's that's all you really need not worth my time is over what happens it from Arkansas. Something happens to the market soldiers. John Murray, you're not being Golden State. Anyway, I give up. I mean, I just I mean Carmelo story. It's like, it's cute. It's over. I mean, he's a marginal player. He's bad for the room. He literally gives you about a game a week. And then the rest of the time he's into his businesses. He's into his stuff. He's into his friend. He's into his guys. It's just over. It's just it's like, it's okay. It's like it's just over. I I don't think it's over for him. I don't think he's going to retire. And I think that the Spurs it'd be an interesting landing place from if they let joy with the news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard lie. An interesting stat about Aaron Rodgers. I know everybody phones every Monday everybody fawns over Aaron Rodgers like that's just the way it works except us except me. But there's an interesting stat about Aaron Rodgers that tells you he needs a lot more help than everybody thinks it's a real number. And I was surprised when I saw this morning. That's next in LA. It's her be sure to catch live edition of the herd. Weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific. Here's an amazing stat. Tony gonzalez. Joining me going to be a first ballot hall of fame. Dude, second most catches NFL history. Here's an amazing stat. We mostly think just give drew Brees. Aaron Rodgers Brady throw. It fifty times. You're great amazing stat Green Bay is forty two and eleven when Aaron Rodgers throws fewer than thirty times their fifty-six and forty one when they ask Aaron to throw over thirty meaning coaching matters. Even Aaron Rodgers needs running game support like he's got interim Jones now, I'm like, oh, yeah. Now Aaron Jones is just as valuable as Aaron Rodgers in that offense. Yeah. Yeah. But they're going to say we need someone like Aaron Jones, and we haven't had that. So we can't run the ball. So we gotta throw the football. Yada, yada. Put I think it goes back to coaching. I think never more have I ever seen the NFL cross the board. How important coaching is coaching has really popped this year in merely made teams great this year. And I think you look around the league the teams that are innovative and creative and doing the reverses you look at it lands. You look at Kansas City. You look at the saints who's been doing it for years. And then the teams that don't do that. I think Jason Garrett down there. But the Cowboys is just boring football. I think those those teams you you can't win like that. Especially with the rules are set up this year in coaching has become more important than ever for these teams to have success. Philadelphia's not the same team some of it is injuries. But you will you have a line. You always say ego has no amigo meaning. In that's difficult in football. Because when you win what happens. What would you have success anytime success? I don't care when you're winning when you're doing well, your show, whatever it is like people, you know, when when you fail. That's when you start to look yourself in the mirror, and you say, okay, we gotta do better. We gotta go get it. But when you win Michael Strahan had a great line. He he said that when people win the Super Bowl in the next year. They come back. They think the reason they won the Super Bowl because of me, and you see guys change you see they go from driving that Jeep to drive a net that nice for all right now, they got the Mercedes they go for more sweats to now they're wearing the facade Visayan for you. And the hats and the designer hats and success is tough. It really really is. Because it makes you lazy. It makes you say, you know, what I'm gonna go out. The got people telling me how great I am now. And I don't have to work as hard. I've already shown I can do it. You just lose that hunger. That dry football does not become. It's not the most important thing in your life anymore. It's what football gave you now that you become attracted to which is which is a tough road to get down. What jamaica? A Dallas win last night. They look better. You can't lie and say, they don't look better offense of -ly Amari Cooper, who is really really going to help them. But to me, they're still it's still the Cowboys. I'm not going to say, they're a great football team. After one game. I still think Jack has to prove that he can he can put back to back to back games together. If you're gonna pay him that twenty five million dollar check a year. Bottom line is to me. They were good last night because they ran the ball. Yeah. Get the ball to that. As equal Elliott is so good. I mean when he's going he arguably he's the best running back into six yards. A carry last night. Yeah. He's a beast. He's a beast feed him the ball. That's where this office should go. And then you can because that's what that offense used to be that Dink and donc with Dez. With Beasley Jason Witten anyway, shirty, they don't have that anymore. Those guys don't exist in that offense. And they're not it's not creative either. It's not a terribly creative offense. I don't think. So, you know, I just I think you really hit it coaching as popped in the NFL. It's just popped it used to be important. Now, it's everything basically, it's like having an accountant in all the tax laws changed and the tax laws now are all about write offs. Will you better have an accountant that understands all the write offs because the NFL's now is not allowing you to be great defensively. The catch rule how many catches that? I see yesterday that we're borderline and they just gave him a year ago. All those are taken away. Now. It's just give the offense the Nelson Aguilar late for Philadelphia looks like it hits the just I just okay. So I gotta show something. Yesterday. All you guys went out to Fort Benning Georgia for Veterans Day celebration. And you told me you were kind of nervous about it. This is this is this footage is going to be great. Just hold on don't run it yet that you told me that you were very nervous. But you thought you would jump out of an aeroplane with military personnel this week. Yes. Yes. Okay. You did. I did. Okay. So before we get to the video don't all the video yet. Were you nervous? Nervous scared. You're scared absolutely scared heart pounding, and it got worse. What do you mean the higher? We kept going up, and you do know they give you all that training before you jump out. And then they get up there. And then you're going at thirteen thousand five hundred feet, and then I'll and I'm the first one out the plane. Oh, you are. Yeah. Before Chris forced producers spoon, and they go. They open up the window, and you look out the window. And you're like, oh my God. This is real this is about the happen about the jump out of a plane. Alright, let's show the video tape and talk over it. So this is so this is, you know, we're walking out to the to the plane about to go up and the nerves that's going on in your mind, right there CS was a little nervous. But when when you jump though the way I decided to do this. It reminded me of football. I could tie this back in before ball is I made a choice. I was like I can be scared all the way down or soon as I jumped his only two scenarios now that are going to happen. I I'm gonna die or I'm gonna live. That's the only two things that can happen. So I said I'm gonna live the I'm going to be fearless. And I'm going to enjoy I enjoyed every second. The hardest part was was jumping out the plane. But once that happened that free fall for forty six seconds going one hundred and forty five miles per hour. What does it feel like was it feel like it's the best thing you've ever done? I ten seconds the first insects. That's that is the most nervous your heart is going. But as soon as I let go and said, I'm going to enjoy this. It was. The best thing. I highly encourage you. But like I said it reminds me of football when you when you decide to finally go over the middle without being afraid when you decide to to block somebody or if you're a linebacker take on that fullback coming. It's just that. It's that I got this and I can do this. I got down to the to the ground. I felt like break, dancing w. Yeah. Chris did it too. And she did awesome. It was no I wouldn't do it. I've tried to do why wouldn't you do this? It's a high pass for me. Also, why wouldn't you guys do this? If I just. In my life. I don't need more throw. Well, first of all, Tony. I think you summed up. Why wouldn't do it joy? Did you hear him say there's two options? One of them is right. But kinda sums up why would point taste? I mean, there is a third option where you know, you land funny. And you know, you break both your legs. I mean, that's a good honest. Great taste death live life. That's a good model to go by your fears. Con can do it pizza a like it or I'll throw it in the garbage. There's no death as an option. I wanna taste pizza. You wanna taste death? I wanna taste PD. What you are your boring. I'm not. Yeah. You are. You're boring. You gotta get out there. You got to go after the things that make you scared. It take off. It was the best selling do it. Again, snakes make me scared. You want me jump in a snake pit? If you wanna live, can, you know, they comfortable and the behind that microphone and air conditioned room. The herd. Our three here we go. This is the heard wherever you may be. And however, you may be listening live in Los Angeles. Iheartradio, Fox Sports radio NFS won-. We wish good luck and safety to the firefighters of southern California who are putting in incredible efforts the fires raging in southern California. And also Veterans Day to all the military personnel. And the veterans in America. Thank you for your service. We will be attorney indebted for you. And in to you and tonight's Monday night football. It's going to be a stinker. I think it's isn't isn't it tonight to Niners giants to? Okay. That's not going to be great. I've watched so much good football in the last five months. I mean, four months, but we've had such good football September such good October. Here. We are November. How many months that is? I mean that is not really big implications for this. Number one pick in the draft is about it. I mean, it's actually it's funny because I really like we're San Francisco's going. They just don't have a quarterback. I don't like what the giants are going, and they don't have one either. They're just not going to admit it yet. That's the big difference. For Monday night football coming up in fifteen minutes in studio love this Trent Dilfer, so good on our show. He'll be joining us in fifteen minutes. But I I mean, we gotta start with this. Right. It was the big game. Got huge numbers. Cowboys beat the eagles on Sunday night football. But I'm still not convinced. I noticed this very early. When my son was six seven years old, you give them like a Snickers bar, and I saw the sugar high just be running around the house. Go two thousand miles an hour and I'm chasing him. And he's breaking stuff and breaking glasses breaking vases. And so there was no more Snickers. And then after about an hour of that he would have a crash, and it would be in a band. Maybe feisty six or seven years old and be crying. I'm like we gotta get sugar out of the house this morning. Thing. Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones Ron sugar high. And it always ends with a crash last night that his Astor for the Cowboys. Yes. When they have a lead. Yes. When Zeke is running wild. Yes. When they play a depleted defense. Yes. They look pretty good. Dak full Zsa. Rush for over one hundred seventy yards average over six yards. A rush had the ball for thirty three minutes. Yes. Dak Dak can look really good. When he's got the formula. Never forget, Tim Tibo won six straight. Great defense. Great running game. Great kicker score in the teens. There are formulas average quarterbacks who you don't wanna pay a lot need a formula to win Dak needs Zeke Doron wild. He needs the offense to be controlling the clock. He needs second fourth third and one for the play action to work. He needs to play with the lead, the weather has to be better than average or at least not chaotic and he's got to have his defense plan. Well, so he doesn't get into shootout. Yes. That's when deck can win that how Tibo won six straight games. How Mark Sanchez got to the AFC championship twice. But franchise quarterbacks that you wanna pay one hundred and fifty. Million. Don't need a formula. They just need the ball and a little help. Okay. Because you're going to get in shoot outs in this league. If you got deck for the next five years Steelers patriots Rams chiefs chargers you're watching those teams this year the rules are all going offense all of them. And I love Dallas front seven defensively. I love their players. Really, really good. But those players the bears players all the great defense in the league. Can't stop anybody. Now. Once you face a great quarterback right now Dallas is on a sugar high because the formula was perfect. It's amazing. How often I understand fans getting fooled? But he's Jerry Jones being fooled by this. I mean Andy Dalton when he had the defense when he had all the good receivers. You wanna bunch games wanted division? Baker Mayfield yesterday only twenty times played with a lead played a bad defense had a great running support. Yes. A lot of guys in this league can win win. The formula is perfect. Carson Wentz last night. Didn't have a Pro Bowl, right? Tackle small woods. Their best running back. Jordan Mathews is a Goto receivers. He just got cut by the patriots defensive secondaries in nightmare. So he's playing from behind the whole game. And the Cowboys linebackers are much better athletes than the running backs behind him. That's what a franchise quarterback looks like Carson Wentz last night. Playing from behind with a beat up defense not getting support from his own line. That's what a franchise quarterback looks like even though he lost the sugar. High is always followed by a crash. It's always followed by a crash and the gap last night between went and Dak is huge give Dak playing from behind. Give Dax small would give Dak Jordan Mathews Kim Dak a secondary like Phillies. If you go to Dak Prescott career he's had about ten like nights or afternoons. We've gone. Wow, franchise guy and all ten it's been the same formula. Not shootouts. No. It's Zeke is controlling the clock. Zeke's running for one hundred twenty five yards. Second and four third in one. Go look at his great games. Looking great passer ratings zeke's having a game, zeke's control and the clock. The play action pass works. But all last night. Really did if you're a cowboy fan all it did is guaranteed. Jerry Jones, flew back to Dallas on his private jet with Steven Jones and the whole family, and he was telling everybody I told you Dax the guy just out nude Carson Wentz. Went to Philadelphia beat arrival that Prescott guy. Nah, he needs a formula last night. The formula was perfect. Carson Wentz was the only quarterback on that field. You wanna spend over one hundred million on? Let me shift gears to this. Now, I did say. On friday. I don't do this very much, and there are micro topics on this show, small ones and macro topics. Big one. I would call micro topics predicting games macro, topics. How does it affect the season? And the franchise I predicted on Friday eagle blow out on a micro level. I was wrong. But on a macro level. I told you after the Super Bowl with Philadelphia. We're gonna come back, and I see this time and time again, I call it. The lottery winner syndrome in sports when people who are not used a wealth not used to celebrity not used to having an unending stream of parades in cash, get it. They don't know what to do with it. Jacksonville, atlanta. Falcons. Carolina panthers. Philadelphia eagles. They're not used to getting Super Bowls. They're not used to getting two Super Bowls, and they're not used to winning Super Bowls. And once they win Super Bowls. They're flexing their flexing on social media. They're right books. They're getting endorsements. They're getting shoe deals in Philadelphia off a bye that was it. You saw it last night. And since you're not used to winning Philadelphia. This is how it works. You're now twenty first in the NFL in points with Carson Wentz. Here's how it works. You win a Super Bowl or get to a Super Bowl. And you lose a couple of really good assistance and a couple of maybe coordinators. Oh, yes. New England they have. And then you lose a couple of players somebody overpays for your Super Bowl players. And then you have a first place schedule, and you become a target, and you kind of lose your edge players don't work out quite as hard in the off season. And what you get is this four and five headed to the Superdome to take on the saints a cook, good luck with that. When cities and franchises that aren't used to winning big suddenly win big. It's the it's the lottery syndrome crap. Do I buy four homes or five to a by another sports car a third boat? More skis jet skis. And then you wake up one morning. And you're like, oh, I blew it. New england. Pittsburgh Green Bay. They're used to winning. Andy Reid wins. Every year. Drew brees. You just don't see the roller coasters with those teams and those players last night. I thought I was wrong on a micro level. I thought Philly off a bye here we go. Here we go. All right coming up next Lada show blotter show Trent Dilfer in studio. We don't get lucky very often and get that. He'll just give us fifteen minutes of an NFL meat sandwich on all the stuff. He saw yesterday. There was a separation from the from the good teams in the really good teams yesterday. Was it started on Thursday with Pittsburgh and Carolina to good teams? One went now. Now now now we're gonna we're going separate here. And we saw it a little bit yesterday. That's coming up. One. More heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio app. Search her to listen live or on demand. Whenever you like when shopping for car insurance consider gyco been saving people money for seventy five years, geiko dot com. My buddy played up decade and a half Super Bowl. Pro bowl. Trent Dilfer is joining us. We don't get them in studio much. I wanted to I want to mention this because you lived in California for a long time. I do now we're based in California if you'll want to the wildfires out here have been daunting the time, we we have so many. Americans that risk their lives for others. It is incredible to watch the footage out here. We know for years with veterans week, and we've always had military members who put their lives on the line, California firefighters if you like to help out Red Cross dot or call one eight hundred Red Cross or you can text the word CA wildfires to ninety nine nine nine ninety nine nine nine ten dollar donation. I want to start Trent Dilfer with that. The Rams many of the players were displaced because their it was in Thousand Oaks, which is north of here. I mean, I don't know I've never gone through a a day of that like that in my life. What did you make of their performance considering that I think if you put this in the scope of the Super Bowl teams that can win the Super Bowl what happened yesterday with the Rams to me was the most significant event of the weekend. And here's why because every Super Bowl team, you go back and talk to the coaches and players they'll tell you less about the willies Joe's Xs. Knows more about some soulful moment. Yeah. Some moment in their season that defined who they were what they believed in the team chemistry getting through something hard like they they surprise themselves. I think most championship teams in any sport will tell you. There's one defining moment to me that defining moment was this week for the Rams win. They win the Super Bowl. And that's how confident I am on what happened this weekend, though, point back to this week because what happened in southern California last week, especially in Thousand Oaks was devastating. It affected not just them, but their families and their communities they wake up and find out about the mass shooting at the borderline. That's that affects them. These guys are preprogrammed robots for your viewing enjoyment. I think sometimes of a fan goes. Oh, they're just they're just robots there. Great athletes. They go out there and they throw touchdowns and catch and block people and tackle people for us. Right. They're human beings. Right. They. Have young girl. Friends, you have young wives. You have children those wives go to things out in the community like every other wife, and they know these people and they're affected by that. And then now you're waking up two in the morning. So you have to leave your home. We got to leave your home and all the stuff. That's there. All that stuff. You're attached to that's years and years of stuff that you're building a legacy as a young family. And now you're leaving. Andrew Whitworth is leaving with his four kids personnel in the department are going to one hotel enough to evacuate that hotel and go to a next everybody should repeater kings article this morning. He tells a really nice story about that. So it's big stuff. Oh, by the way, we have to play the Seattle Seahawks. We have a job to do. And their ability from the top down. This is the only president director of operations head coach everybody involved to handle the chaos that was their life this week and to be able to handle it, right and be human beings. And then go and play the type of football. They played Sunday. That shows tremendous character it shows that they can compartmentalize that they can focus that they can trust one another. And I guarantee that gotten that Huck room afterwards. They looked around went. Wow. What a week. We just pulled that off. Yeah. With what we went through this week. To me we will win. They win the Super Bowl. They will. They will look back at this week and say we were good. We were good team. We have good players coaches. But that made us great because we we touched into something internally as football team. That would even know we had. Yeah. Well, I mean, drew Brees saints Catrine us, you go back and talk to the team, and they're like in the moment, it's catastrophic. And but it was so galvanizing your your your people don't understand Thousand Oaks is not a huge community. They had a shooting and forest fires in a two day period. And it all in one small, and that's where the Rams are. And that's where their families are. You know, it's interesting about the NFL. I'm a fan of Andrew luck. There's quarterbacks. Everybody knows. I like Brady Russell Wilson of a breeze guy. Andrew luck. You're an elitist. We've said this year's we used to argue about this at the other place, you're an elitist. And that's okay. Yeah. I like Stanford guys. So I couldn't qualify to get in. But I like those I hang out with smart people. I watched Andrew luck. And it makes me smile makes me smile. They finally got him help. He finally has an offensive coach. He finally has an offensive line other way. The defence is not great. They're going to have to draft a bunch of players, but I'm watching him. And I'm like, okay, just get the kid help. And it may and I watched them, and I still think they're going to back door their way into the playoffs. They're probably not good enough. I mean, the roster isn't what do you make of the transformation? He's got a new GM. He's got a new coach. He's got to go line. What do you make of Andrew luck must see TV if you love offense football? If you love great quarterback play. And if you love often supplying play, and I never thought I'd say that with Annapolis colts the guard Quinton Nelson. Oh my God. I played with immigration guards. And then I fell history and see Hutchinson in Seattle. He literally Steve wood mall people, and we'd rewind the film over and over and over I guarantee you if we put Steven this chair had saying, I didn't do that. What would this kid is doing to people Notre Dame kid Notre Dame kid the level of physicality that he plays with NF lettuces explosion? It's like a skill position player three hundred and thirty pounds just wrecking people. And they've also did the centers really good player. They've done a nice job on the offensive line Andrews, it we said I said he was the greatest prospect. John elway. Yeah. I still believe that there's nothing he doesn't do on a scale one to ten he was like a seven five or above on everything you looked at. He's phenomenal. And now we're getting to see it. And I think we can have this conversation about the colts. And then Safeway seamlessly into the eagles conversation because of Frank Reich. So this is interesting. I think Frank Reich is the secret sauce that saw it all and said, oh, we gotta do this. And that and this and we'll get this, dude. Andrew luck playing like Brady and Brees. And Roger so do you believe Frank Reich departure is part of Carson Wentz struggle? Absolutely. It hit. I was watching Filippo to is gone as well. I'm watching this game last night in Philadelphia just went as talented as he's ever been. They're just not there. Don't ask me. I was a journeyman. I'm average at best go as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers and drew Brees. That's true breezy. It'd be drew Brees without Sean Payton. He was the first to tell you hell, no Tom Brady without Billy O'Brien and Josh mcdaniels no way Aaron Rodgers though watching far than being part of that west coast. Post McCarthy offense in its early stages. No way you are a system quarterback. Now, the greats. We're going to be really good. No matter what right. They become great because of the mentor ship the system Steve Young says it better than me about Bill wall. Stephen wasn't going to be Steve Young. He'll be the first to tell you unless it was for Bill Walsh. Joe Montana would have been Joe Montana. John Elway could've been the greatest in the history if he had Shanahan earlier, but look at it. He was John Elway was kind of a butcher just the best athletes on the field until he got Shanahan. Yeah. That made him a surgeon. Yes. It goes on and on and on Frank Reich is one of those outlier coaches. He's one of the very very very best, and he leaves and they're kind of mediocre right now in Philly. Oh, who's all of a sudden gone from can't protect the quarterback quarterback's hurt. All the time. The can't run the football. A bunch of bad stuff was going on in hapless now, much good. Stuff's going on. It's not that hard to connect the dots. You talked to really good football. People. Really good. Not the scalp has got a big mouth who wants to call and get his voice out there. The really good football people the people who have been there thirty forty years doing it. Well, they will all tell you Frank Reich. They knew it. Yeah. What he jump back into coaching. He's going to be a rockstar trend. Dilfer joining us decade and half in the NFL SuperBowl Pro Bowl. Baker mayfield's one of these things where I've put my name on darnold so people, and I've said Baker does too much a little bit too much ego and nonsense for me. But I said he'd never be a bus because he's just too accurate thrower. You cannot bust in this league. If you can throw darts all you need is a little bit of protection. So yesterday. He had the perfect situation. Atlanta didn't play a lot of defense. Not a lot of pressure. Running game was tremendous the one thing I'll say about Baker is. In this whole John Dorsey Cleveland thing, I didn't I wouldn't have drafted Denzel award outta gone with Bradley Chubb dental awards been a home run very good player. Due johnson. And Nick Chubb, second round great young running back. I gotta be honest with you. Now, I do think Baker has better components than the other rookie quarterback's. But I watch Cleveland right now and through chaos Baker yesterday that game was built for Baker. So give you the macro. I. Get me if I'm running out of time. No the quarterback position. She's I've written about this athletic. I've talked about this a bunch of last month. I mean last year so that the position in general is transitioning forever. It was about stature power arm strength, big athletic big arm that was that was the model, right? As field widened as Saturday off in start taking over Sunday. The game has transitioning more to precision in twitch, not just twitchy body twitchy mind quick. Although these quarterbacks don't digest as much information say the Peyton manny's back in the heyday, there's not as much volume the processing speed of all his sped up wilt tempo change. Yeah. No huddles. You gotta go fast. So you have to have a twitchy mind. You have to have twitchy is because finally coordinators of discovered what Bill Walsh discovered years ago that you got to let quarterbacks. The entire field. Even when they're young. You got to force them to read sideline to sideline. If you just picking off half the field and saying either or you're limited in your quarterback doesn't develop. So now you have to twitchy is the ball's coming out quicker. So you have more twitch in your body. The ability to get it out quick. And then it comes down to precision kind of sounds like Baker Mayfield, doesn't it? And that's why I could buy a six footer last year. And I was Donald guy too. I still put my name on Donald as the number one guy in the draft. But my analogy I use last year was ice cream. We all like ice cream, ice creams awesome. Yes. But we like different flavors that quarterback clash this year was ice cream bunch. I think they're all going to be really good given the right environment. But they're different flavors. One guy stature power Josh Allen darnold coma hybrid. And then Baker Mayfield is what I call them over timing tempo. Precision twitch guy. It's just a different flavor. I love mint chip. I don't like rocky road. You might like rocky road. I never like pralines and cram either choke. That's terrible. I do like when they start putting cookie dough in. But you see. Sort of getting start learning to appreciate these guys. Dacre Mayfield play like drew Brees yesterday. Yeah. I've been saying since last year's draft. He can be a hall of Famer if he chooses to play like drew Brees and not try to play like Cam Newton in college. You saw I'm trying to play like Cam Newton sometimes when we played Georgia, and he tried to be Cam Newton now. Good trainwreck. Yeah. But yesterday. Yeah, he made some place he made some really cool. But for the most part, it was timing precision exactness. Yes. Which that's what he needs. So let's segue into Dak Prescott. Yes. Using that. You would say also Dak would work. But here's my knock contact. He's not as accurate thrower the football twitchy. He's not as twitchy with his eyes. He's not making the same rapid decisions. That's a good player. And we've said this before hall of famers, don't grow in a tree. There's no hall of fame quarterback tree. So sometimes you got to play with a really good player in. We'll be develops into. A high level really good player. But that Prescott is the Dallas Cowboys. He's inconsistent. He has nice upside at times, he does a ton of splash place. And then there's this basic plays that he's not making consistently enough and to win all the time. Then Philip takes. I wasn't very consistent. That's why was not a great player. And when you start looking at players and saying, I appreciate a lot about debt. I appreciate a lot about the Cowboys. But they're not consistent enough to be in the conversation of a difference maker team this league because their quarterback represents their entire team. Not yet quite consistent. Now, I thought Chris Collins was set at perfectly last night. He's a good player that Jetsons just needs polish. But how long are we going to wait for polish when you're watching a first year starter in Kansas City, look, very polish? Yeah. So that's why I think it becomes a big conversation. How long can you? Wait. Or just settle with good win. Great might might be out there. Great stuff today. Thanks. Well, you know, you're always welcome to sit on the chair because we like you the other place if a beautiful home, which I've never been invited to. But I know I most welcome. But we love have known the chair trend. You Dilfer a great stuff on a Monday. A joy Taylor. The news. Turn on the news. This is the heard line news. That Lakers sit in panic. And they're doing. All right. Don't they have a winning record straight games? Dilfer? You're a big Laker fans. You grew up a Laker fan. Yeah. They're pretty good. They're they're pretty good. Von Dame is a little something to do with that. And the addition of Tyson Chandler last night against the hawks LeBron dunk, the winning basket with fifteen seconds left to go. Did miss two free throws, but Tyson Chandler blocked out there bigs and got the rebounds. And then the von got the dunk, and then of course, Jon they've blocked trae Young's driving layup to preserve eight one seven one six victory over the hawks lingers understandably excited celebrating after that block and Tyson was asked will the front said to him after that win. Two kids jokes. They really enjoy. They have. Got like ten guys who can play. They don't have a lot of stiffs on this roster their deep not a lot of great players. But I you know, when I watch them and they're up and down the floor. They got they had athletes the young veterans. They're shooting better. It's a fun. They're fun to watch. Fired and they should trade off Ord. God can we stop with? Tyson Chandler is a piece of Ron obviously used his influence to make happen. Yes. He likes playing with vet Tyson Chandler is not your average center. He's he's like a point guard. He's very active. He's very vocal. He watch them throughout the game. He's the same way in practice. He has clout. So young players with up to him are going to trust him and tension to what he says, and he takes leadership off of LeBron's play. Now, that's part of the reason why Rondos there's completely different personality. Right. And he's not going to influence every position on the four. Lebron's also pass the days of really being a great defensive player. So LeBron is like I don't wanna be a rim defender now Tyson can get those rebounds. And they don't have to rely on the brunt going in there to get those. So a wide ranging ranging interview with ESPN after the raiders twenty six loss to the chargers on Sunday the owner Mark Davis accepted blame for the teams one in eight. Start. He said, quote, I always look in the mirror and the buck stops with me where the seam is right now as my faults. We haven't been able to build a twenty two man roster. We haven't been able to give his team chance to win because the reconstruction failed and same interview. He also addressed this isn't the trade Khalil Mack and receiver Amari Cooper. And his message was don't blame Gruden flame me there. Now, one eight and currently holding number one overall pick in the draft, obviously that could change but. You like this though, I like that he said this to it takes heat off, John I still, you know, I said this one had happened. What industry can you be out of for ten years? And I always use Silicon Valley in football baseball. Looks sounds and feels like it did twenty years ago. If you look at television broadcast football a decade ago and today, they don't even look the same. This is an ever changing rules. I mean, good Lord. There are coaches and players players. I watched colts game yesterday special teams players for the colts. Didn't know some of the special teams rules like to be out of this industry for a decade with Gruden. I thought it was a bad high of an issue that you could be out for ten years and come back in and and if the same maybe maybe acting did, you know ten years ago when you when you were in radio in ten years ago, I was in radio ten years ago. When I used to get ratings. It was a piece of paper, and it was AM radio. And now I have a on AM FM XM serious, right YouTube Facebook television, digital high has podcast I used to just get a pay pay. Here's your AM radio rating. Now, I have like thirteen different ratings, and you and I were both in radio ten years ago and all you cared about his what is the rating book say coming out next the ratings book and used to be a book out. Now, it's now it's technology is like a beam to it. It's it's completely different. Most industries are going to change over ten years. So it's it's not that. But I do like when the owner takes responsibility situation because at the end of the day, it really is there call they're the person that put the coach charge they approve they approve trades like Khalil Mack, and Amari Cooper that doesn't happen. You watch clearer yesterday. So is sober. Leonard we knew what he was. They knew what he was. How do you watch a football game? And there's a bunch of NFL players all over the screen, and you're like who's that guy? He's dominant like an into defensive player. Khalil Mack is ridiculous. He is ridiculously good could ease in this year. Yeah. Finally, the Cowboys beat the eagles. Keep their winning the division amick the playoffs alive is he Elliot had a big game hundred fifty one yards and touchdown an ice game two hundred and seventy yard touchdown and no interceptions. And after the game was looking towards the future rather than focusing on this game. Yeah. We've just got us this movement and may continue to grow. This is a winning team. Great. When you go on the road and wins first time doing that this year. So it's important for us just to fill that in to that that energy in the locker room to make sure we don't forget that he's been great at the podium. That's I said before the talent part of him is he has quarterback speak down. He is. He is quarterback. He'll I will say this Goulet you love your Cowboys Amari Cooper runs. Great routes. If Amari Cooper turns people know, it's so boring. But I watching that game last night now Philadelphia's thirteenth string corner, but Amari Cooper is tough to lockdown. He they gotta get that thing figured out because he's really good. He had that great play early where he got popped on third down and stayed on the first on that was big. Yeah. I'm Ari Cooper. Everybody criticized given up a first round pick. But I watch him, and I'm like there's no college receiver, but you need, you know, number one receiver. Offenses the trending league who would've thought? Joy Taylor with news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard lie. New feature on Monday, we call it. Our best of last are three word game. We can sum up every NFL game starting Thursday Steelers and Carolina in three words three word game on Mondays now on best for last that is coming up. It's cold and flu season stuffy nose. Throat hurts Vic sign X nasal spray lasts up to twelve hours when congestion strikes Greg Jennings. Chris Bruce are Tony Gonzalez Trent Dilfer one of them Monday. Joy what a Monday we've established that you like Carmelo Anthony way more than I do. He's not going to retire. Everyone. Just calm down. He's not retiring. Carmelo Anthony is not retiring, I feel very confidence, and you should should he this is how he's gonna leave the NBA. Well, it's we all at the end we all whimper off. And just you know, we all just my last radio show will be like. And I'll be like have smokers confident in our in just like, I can't okay anymore chill. That'll be my last show disappointing. You don't call it before. Then come retiring. Right. Best for last after almost three hours, Colin apparently hasn't gotten to the point yet quit home not on us coward. Catch the best for last. I've done this in the NBA for years. We do it now on Monday that every NFL game starting with last Thursday. They can all be explained in three words. So let's start with the Panthers and the Steelers. The. Don't need lady. On forget. The fact the Steelers won by thirty and their offense was absolutely flawless. The bigger issue. Here is lady and bells offended teammates. And you realize that James Connor who nobody knew about outside of Pittsburgh before the year started now has ten rushing touchdowns. That's more than lady in bell has ever had in a season the little grinder the little guy, we didn't know about has made it so laving. They don't eat them. Next up. Patriots titans. Happens every year Tom Brady has twenty three double digit losses in his career. And he's been playing for about eighteen. So he has about one and a third of one and a half of these every year yesterday off a bunch of big wins their offense of line with manhandled by the way in the seasons where Brady is suffered is to ugliest losses fifteen years ago against the bills in four years ago against the chiefs Toth years they went onto win the Super Bowl. This ain't no big thing. Next up lions bears. It ain't Trubisky. Chicago's defense is number one in the NFC. Okay. Number four in the NFL. They're number one in turnover differential. Listen, it's a little like Dak wins last night and everybody freaks out. They had the running game and the defense, and they had the lead bottom line in Chicago. Matt Nagy is the less well-known version of the ram Sean McVay McVeigh's got stars offensively left tackle running back quarterback receiver. What the bears are doing right now with Mitch Trubisky to me, it's the story of the year. I talked to people inside the NFL year ago that thought maybe the kid was a bust Trubisky. This year twenty two DS seven picks and a quarterback rating over one on one. I don't think it's him though. Next up bills jets. Bowls fired yet. The jets have lost four straight Sam darnold left. It wasn't Sam darnold. Josh mccown came in and he was awful quarterback rating thirty nine listen, the parking lot got empty by halftime the team quit. You gotta remember Buffalo's fourth quarterback this year. Matt Barkley came in and dropped a forty burger on them. This was about effort again, I feel bad for Todd Bowles and Steve Wilton Arizona, but these young defensive coordinators feel like flip phones and twenty eighteen they and the GM should go with Bev. No offensive players left tackle need, a new one, right? Tackle need a new one center. Average running backs below average tight end. Good should be third tight end wide. Receivers a bunch of dudes just guys. Next up falcons Browns. Woke up dangerous. Listen, it was a perfect setting for a rookie quarterback played with the lead against the bad defense. The running game was humming for Cleveland and Baker Mayfield. Who's got a lot of swagger only. Add to throw the ball twenty times tied for the least in the NFL. Never forget when Big Ben came into the NFL. Remember that first year? Big bend didn't fill the football member. Philip rivers. I here in San Diego. Didn't tell the football. He attempts seventeen throws. This has how you manage a rookie quarterback Duke Johnson. And Nick chop are tremendously talented running backs. They got a lead that defense is the real deal. They had very few third downs. They didn't ask a ton. And they asked him to be accurate this play right now, you're watching was his best of the day. But after the game he was all fired up. When I woke up this morning. I was feeling pretty dangerous. He is good behind the mic. A next up cardinals chiefs. Lights camera action. Join I disagree on this too. I understand celebrating. I get it. The NFL wants free social media buzz. I totally get that. But at some point second quarter ask Andy Reid if he loved this. That's a fifteen yard penalty have to have rules mine. Knock on celebrating is ultimately it will become taunting or penalties. So how about a new rule? You can celebrate all you want inside the end zone. That's already a roll. Well, he got he got. Well, I mean, they're not going to the penalty for the lambo leap, but he got penalized because he used the prop. Probably start with props. Can we would you like it? If I if I came on the show every day, and they had a funny suit on and I was had a pipe. Hey, not every day. But if you came in after we got our ratings, and we were number one, and we were thumping everybody. Yeah. You can wear whatever you want Chris rock or carrot top. Who do you wanna go watch? Hey, here's a ski mask and lip balm. Prog seriously comparing touchdown celebrations the carrot top right now. I am that's a prop. We have gone off the rails. All right Redskins. Buccaneers. Didn't watch. It. Just didn't see the game. I don't mean to be rude. But the only I didn't watch it with log looks at me. Like, I have to watch all the games. I walked all the games except this one. I did not watch Washington play. Listen, here's all you need to know about this game help out. It was Tampa Bay had five hundred one yards and scored three points. I picked the right game not to watch on red zone because they never got in the red zone. They never show highlights to the whole gang watched every day yesterday. I didn't see one I saw like a play on this game. I'm not afraid to admit it. I just didn't watch it. All right dolphins. Packers. The other Erin. Do you know that Aaron Rodgers is forty two and eleven when you ask him to throw fewer than thirty times this Aaron Jones kid is electric Green Bay what in play them sooner, my only guess is. He's a rookie and it took him a while to get the pass blocking schemes down because this kid's the he is a dynamic player. Aaron Rodgers even Aaron Rodgers needs a running game Aaron Jones yesterday nine point seven yards per rush. He's talent Jags colts. Can't touch. Luck colts having allowed a sack and four straight games. He second in the NFL and touchdown passes. When you consider when you consider what he has to work with ofensive -ly, they still Marlin max, they're running back. They have good tight ends. But that's about it. I got a bunch of games left. But let me just do one more. Playmakers on three. Here's drew Brees before games. Yeah. There you go. That's handy. Dandy doll. Let's drew Brees. Let's here. We don't look. Trippie don't. That quarterback scored a touchdown on his first four drives the other quarterback. Not quite as Spiring did not score four touchdowns on its first for Dr doesn't get you fired up. No, it does not. All right. We will see you tomorrow. The herd hierarchy tomorrow, which is tough. What do I do at Tennessee? And what do I do is Chicago? And what do I do with the colts? We'll see tomorrow. It's the her.

The Jimmy Butler Revisionist History Hour

"Among direct game saints one two slain remains a found the best kept. Cbc You went platinum with a game. I no problem is don't you don't you think? I don't know the problem. Mosquitoes Buddy the problem is yeah. Oh yeah there it is. I've tallied. I'm is open. Book wonders never felt the need to run away from the journalists from the press But there there are some things that that I to address but much like the Astros will not be taking questions on this time. Keep and not pay. Any real consequences. Always was the rumors. They're out there. I heard them floating around there so I just wanted to dress them hat on. It's true I did run a mile. Consecutively no stops at the gym today. But got no questions at this time. Okay well our respect your privacy. Not yet now. I'd listen it's true. There's lots scuttle butt up. This is losing two three miles. It looked like you may have gone five out the pay was on. I was barely out of breath when he stopped. Just taking it step by step but not just one one complete mile. I got no questions. Thank you as pretty good. But I respect your privacy. I won't comment on the matter. Thank you thank you. I knew a journalists with integrity. Much like yourself would have such a plum you don't want to Pulitzer for working out of your ass. It's true when like me. That's baseball does not want people to watch it anymore. I don't know what's going on base. That role stinks. Like I said it's like people explained that other side which I get. The numbers came out. It's like it would have affected five percent or four and some change a pigeons. 'cause I really like. How often does this happen and like series quite like this like I know you In the postseason? But is this like a hacker shack thing where it really doesn't happen that much the grand scheme of things and apparently the now now and it's like a lot of guys. I feel I come in for two or you come in for the last guy and then you you go the next setting so I don't what happens if he faced three batters got married the whole release that out. What happens if you faced three batters? You only got two outs Guy On first you get polls next guy comes and gets one out. I don't know why I need to put a gun. I the scenario and then he gets the next to the next thing. Does that. Now it's three outs. Or the end of the innings. So whoever somebody comes in and gets that final out good yet? You're good you can go to Nick's sitting. It's in the playoffs to like you. See micromanaging we're trying to win the world fucking series a really. Don't mind that if it's like okay. Listen we got one God is. Baseball is a sport. Play guys just get bellinger number? Whatever that you just can't track the way. The ball comes out of his hand or whatever we need to get him out. We'll forget the rest out and it's I don't know he's got a pitch to To the thing that baseball thrives on in October is how long and how much intensity builds up over nine innings and every delay it just gets more and more uncomfortable with you and to speed it up. Baseball doesn't know who they are. I Know Kevin was talking about this earlier to. They just don't know who they are anymore. They've no identity if feels like they're trying to up like they're trying to modernize hey youths were murder but it's also like we once knew fit like who like who was like these games are too long as like. Oh the cut net out arm in right eight minutes off of every third game of every series. I'm it's literally. Four percent of the season is what like six five and a half games like I saw somebody else. That is the Max time on. A pitching change is like this would on average cut like thirty seconds off of average gain. So if you're already in you're not out because of this and you're out you're not in because of this so who who's at four. They put in the pitching clocked a few years ago which they already had pitching clock. Technically up just weren't enforcing it up. Started enforcing it and enforce like very rarely but wasn't forced that sped up the game all six minutes like that's not enough to notice cut some time make it seven innings Alcott. Some fucking time America that we just make a discount six minutes here thirty seconds there minute there. It'll add up but boy I think when you have that we have that problem and it happens over like a twenty year span. You've already lost generation waiting like that generation. Abbas isn't GonNa jump in their parents didn't watch like losing somebody out there now son. We could finally start going back to the braves games. You made it Paul Yup. There'll be no more of it. A lefty specialist reliever in renewing my season tickets. They're bringing the D. H. to the L. Next year ohka And that is really only pissing off older people younger people. I don't know if that's going to be like oh I could have just watched the other half of the league all this while but now that all of the League plays this way. I'm in now. I could see that one because like with that you get more like it'll be national league David Ortiz's Edgar Martinez and guys like bats if you find your nationally. Da He's GonNa Feast on Inferior. What we thought was inferior pitching Throwing it gets a pitcher nomo teachers and jackets though. I'll miss that. No more pitchers jackets and out like I do it. Stalin that they have pitchers hit but I feel like one of the charms of baseball is that there are like it's it's completely different games. Different Leagues not the same sport. Like it's like that like the Western Conference note threes though only twos till the final stone. Your home court were shooting threes. Don Mind not right. It phillies Odds were on the wrong conference. We've built a team for hunt home quarterback and but yet not that d. h. another dirty secret about the D. H. is out. There haven't been that many great d. ages the great ones they have. They don't WanNa put in the hall of fame. I thought you were all on the age I am. I am the I think it's more come world series like come playoffs. There should just be because even even anti teams like by that point of the year especially if they don't jump. The amount of teams are putting in the playoffs. By that point. Your bench is usually much. Burke you've brought up your top prospects and players like this so it's like if if I think the Ellwood nate that either. And it's not a huge shift in thought you're just like. Oh Yeah we just. Our fourth outfielder hits now are pitcher. Doesn't have to. I don't think that would be a huge change to do come playoffs. I think if it's like okay before for that. He was only off without because he's a good glove across three positions. Now it's like listen. This guy can't catch a thing but boy can rake right. Yeah Adam Dunn Stone. The League Vladimir Guerrero still kicking around Barry Bonds might just go back to the giants Man I'm glad we never saw like bonds blackballed and should have had a couple more years with Dinger's but I'm also glad we just never had to see him like on the Tampa Bay. Rays like you still would've cooked man. He would have put. The team would have been so sad around him as barry bonds beer bottles cooking. I washed the bonds alert. Set of baseball should be better than say. Oh my dues to come up Tibet. Cool watching nine pitches every game. I just WANNA see his at bats walks. Yeah like this great my here. He's not gonNA swing. It called it. My favorite rule that they've changed is intentional. Walks you just point now? Bill words like okay. I think everybody like Amsterdam somewhere on the other side. Like it's part of the game. See if you can throw a straightforward in at once every fifteen years One goes over the CATCHER's head or somebody leans over in. It's it's worth. That was the argument that the same argument for pitchers hitting as Bartolo Cologne Vauxhall. Cologne hit that home. Run but what about the next Fatso the next generation when he finally hits one after a twenty year career. An Mike Hampton made a living off just silver slugger. Who Silver Slugger? You'll you'll get a pitcher who can write. Fernandez was on his way. Miami Yeah Von Hernandez raked names. I know so. I know something's wrong. The Madison Bumgarner rakes. People Bruce Bochy use it a lot I was like. Did anyone like three rings though. Like you're using. It's working to tremendous success raw. Very funny is when they have when you have a pitcher that can really rake. They'll hit. It's like I'd still like so embarrassing aid for that catcher but be that. Yeah those guys bat so good. We're comfortable batting him. Not We're just catcher. You just just go out there and just take three hot ones man. That's that's what it will speed up time a bit. If you him below two hundred you just gotTa you just get three pitches. Whatever you I hate that you just get three like you gotta get above the Mendoza Line. Once you get above that line. Start pitching like normal but as you get hot three Kanter speak three. And if you don't get hit you you're out or if the guy just those three balls that a walk. Yeah I'm fine with it. If what if you work to one count? Do you get one extra pitch. No it around. You had your chance real. It's a wall anything other. It's now I'll say I'm just throwing to like the opposing batter's box and then one right down the pipe you sit down. He's like okay. I know he can't go throw otherwise we'll put me on base now. I'm getting one. Let's see if I can do something would probably can't if you're only getting three pitches max point nine later. Pierre. You're out of here. Might get three strikes you might. They might skip a couple. And see what your chase. 'cause you're bad real awhile. You're yeah I baseball trying to placate two IRAN IS GONNA end up placating. The no-one making absolutely no unhappy. They should just be like we'd use the fuck out of the balls. It's healthier this way. Dinger's Galore. That's what we got either that or like. Listen if you could call one time you're done for life precursor. We're going boomers over going trying to get the young folks whichever side but what you're doing now. I don't know how that's GONNA work juice balls because I feel like regionally it does well still nationally. It's never going to do well. And that's part of they don't have I don't even have like a Gruden. You know what I made. One postseason rolls around their postseason booze tight. But it's not me move work year round especially. Espn ESPN should do whatever they can to get. And I'm not saying this. Just because Pedro but Pedro and literal one sixty two just about the second straight to the people who turn out of here Betas like why do you keep calling me tests? The thing about that is like a ride does a really good job. He's just like most people I see when they're watching Sunday night baseball and I don't think it's a problem for. I don't think she's there anymore. Just mute it. Because they couldn't stand Jess Mendoza thought she was that bad or bad at all People fucking hated her minister against my law is a like that they're tried like the The the shifter he breaks the news they gotta get a good boy. They're calling the game. I think they pay whatever to bring back. Vince Gully in put him with booger. People were even starting to get out on skelly the end some people not most for those people at. GimMe a Tommy. Heinsohn and and Pedro mismatched booth play the basketball. If you've got a good one. Have you get like Bob Rath Call Braves Games now. My God now on both the Hawks interbreeding Mike Breen's is going to be calling the mets game today. Listen it legitimately. Just get Chris Berman back. I think he's available. Does it have him and Tom Jackson? Chris Berman did like six. Red sox games only on the radio last year. Though it was very peculiar a Guinness Guy was better than industry fifty years. Just this guy from high school from Santo Domingo Community Guy. Was that the show. Jim Tell me right now. You talk about a guy who just sucked Dinger's wouldn't play in today's game at opelousas. Denying a then no basis for this man. I know a lot of people just to paint. The entire era is everyone was on juice. I genuinely don't think Tommy was now. I mean there's a lot of like I'm sure it's evidence but I never until the evidence game I never thought Bagwell was I just. I was like that guy. He's just a like a squatty guy it's a stance he's stocky. I think it's more than didn't but this guy's a boy Brady Anderson hit seven home runs and he hit fifty and then it hit eleven but I feel like that weren't a ton of those guys. It was like the Palmeiros like people who hit four to five hundred. It was like Oh yeah they were student. The whole time from sixteen fifty to eighteen. Never hit more than twenty four. Nope solid ball ear. What do you want? It all came together for one exact year when he was thirty two. I like how quit immediately? It was like boy. I kinda like. It was like he'd been playing since eighty seven years and he's like I think I think I could hit fifty by Jews. I just WANNA prove to myself. And he did Larry Walker. I don't know if there's is names ever caught up. I don't think he he ju. But if that's the new rule in baseball you can have exactly everyone's gotTa D. H. in their DA's could use but it can only do one year violent that 'cause then you got to be selected it's mortgage are juicier wrong. But then they come out of the gate. It's like Oh man. The pigeon went down. He already wasted his juice. You talk but that'd be tremendous fucking bases-loaded pools up like he's back. We wash out now. He's he's six three to seventy better than the ball. A clear a C. D. H. Universal. And you get one Jewish guy per year. I think it'd just be. It'd be one juice gap per roster. Use them however you want. He's just you're like this. Is The guy that he is allowed to use. As much as his body can take. We're not regulating Yankees Chapman. Like Jesus Christ. Yeah but now. He's throwing a hundred twenty miles an hour. This curve checking in at triple digits. Yeah One on one so again everybody gets one. Maybe you use it on you closer. Maybe you is it on your your three hole hitter used on your catcher man. Wow He's he threw that bought a second base. The guy named gun to slide yet. It meant to hit the pitcher. He was it was just went straight through the Torso. This baseball though. Figure it out one of these years or they won't that's how that business now they're trying things which I can always appreciation. I would try it thirties. Like it's the rule. Now we'll see what happens. But even in the the playoff thing adding teams. I was Kinda surprised when they edit the second wild car for Everyone. I was watching. It was just one wildcard. So they're trying things I can. I can appreciate effort while guard. The wildcard game rather good is about to be like six more than it. I don't think I like it as much. It just be like a al. What are they saying? Jessica plying the fuck later your champagne. Yesterday going home today. After hunting. Sixty two reported back today. I was like Jesus Christ they just. It's so fast now for like they still might still taking their turn with the world series. Trophy gotta go back. So I can't imagine how much fun said I've had this offseason yearbook both of your when other world series now off season winning just missing the playoffs entirely. You ever thought of baseball years years. Not Trump got this figured out your four hundred million dollars so Worki- April through September. No problem you basically a ninth grade teacher now. He's he's of quiet California. He got all the Eagles Games here in the one sport where nobody can be as good as you want. Your team can stink as much as you want. And you won't get the blame like none of it and if people even try and blame you. You get laughed out of the conversation. He seemed like an a playoff series. He could for whatever and it's like small sample size. That's true it is a small sample size three games not one hundred sixty two. It's a tiny sample is in comparative. Angels are GonNa make the playoffs as you. That's my early baseball. Take on some people. They got your boy. Julio Teheran yes I really think the angels ragged popularity of all the Los Angeles teams thirty by. Ucla men and women's team USC Minimum Seen Fresno Fresno out there now but they headed him still very loud. Imagine this xfl what's the XFL team out. There they had of him if there is one yes other is one then. Yes it went from zero to three football team. They signed somebody else. Did they got up random rendell? That's who it was and Otani healthy. So yeah they blame Otani. I saw the best update at said. He's going to be Dha Opening Day and he'll be ready to pitch by like End of April amid may as as as great so he's half on the DL half ready to go so you talked about using new juice gown Otani MVP. Yeah better four hundred twenty eight games on the they've taken babe. Ruth's bust out of Allah fame. You Know Gone Otani in Justin Upton also way make sure I have the story right. 'cause this be a real bad one to fuck out. Yup Angels outfielder. Justin Upton is changing his Jersey number from number eight to number ten in part to pay tribute to Kobe. Bryant and Jonah. So plus two. I'm guessing yeah. He wore So he wore adding the two so he's ten now. He has worn ten before. I'm pretty sure different stages career I liked it. So they've got trout upton. I have no idea who the branding Goodwin's other outfielder that can't be true The backup point guard for the hawks. It Brian Goodwin name was right in front of me. Still couldn't read it Yeah there's pools just reading the names on this team. Fucking undrawn sevens player little short four all star game in a rundown also. Was it last year the year before where the pitcher last year must've been was the last year. Tampa Tyler skaggs twenty sixteen shit July first. Yeah that feels ancient that they brought in Dylan Bundy. They brought in like names of their pitching staff. Which I think's one of them's GonNa hit. That's really all they need like Let me Julio's automatic correct and you add some hitting and of like of Otani is going to be D. H. Impulsive Spot Dat. If this perfect for the old man wasn't he like not Godawful last year Let's see I'm led to forty four three zero five on base twenty-three Dinger's nine years in three years. Yeah so again. If you're going to put him in that role less as more than they should hope they do make the playoffs but one hundred thirty one games last year. Jeez yeah maybe maybe you cut that to like one hundred one less poses more point for war. Yikes Ought to be higher than the previous point. Five Year prior he played less games. Negative one point before that he used to be in the nines say Lewis. I'd love to see pool halls. Just go he's never hit a home run in the All Star game that's shocking coward to extra-base hits at all pools not all famer look that way feasting on a terrible l. Central gets playoffs. Like eighty four. Eighty five wins PRU halls aller pools you now. He's nice because no one has ever really pointed out the fact that his last name is quite literally Pu Holes. I mean we respect our elders I guess fifty two years old not nice to say these things even even in like Oh to donahue saying this when he was a spry thirty one again we as thirty one of Dominican us a hard time of disrespect. Ghibli this guy played community. College did no just in the D. I be like yeah. We'll take you wouldn't undrafted now around thirty years. Drafted twelve arounds. Yeah somebody in. Kansas City was like listen. I am telling you have to move now. I don't know like shortstop on that community college team. It was absurd. I Love Baseball. You yeah the guy we the Derek jeter junior. We traded for Karla shortstop we have a shortstop. So there's GonNa move into second from what it sounds like. Okay sure I like it. We think you are right. You play all their position was a Bob Knight in the Jordan. Dreyer has like bomb. I can't take him. Anita Centers Jordan. A center at the wrong with you know. I do like those kind of old takes. I like exposed one side or just like wildly correct dead those Wa guy who's just like very correct about Brady in two thousand when like the rest of the world just Hasn't even looking at him like those are the kind of tax we should prop up people who just on the money Nolan. Iraqi wasn't Mike Lombardi House. I Dunno go to bed. Let's go Mike Lombardi. Otas Tisza meow. I've I've I've never heard of good. Take out of him not one and that's surprising that this guy has worked in the NFL. For what twenty? Plus years as I said I guess today the air. Bnb should take the Colorado job is a way to show he's ready for NFL head. Coaching job man. That's the worst of is. I've ever heard terrible advice. Bill Walsh if you WANNA be a head coach be a head coach. Doesn't McMahon if you WANNA be a leopard just be a leopard that's all? It is to be a professional quarterback. Just be professional quarterback. I will I WANNA be like Riano seat cushion next flight do that wasn't ventures milwaukee genius. Who is it? Maybe we don't have everybody a run. A hundred yards down the field and try to wing it to like this guy just gets it. Who's last coach to go from at NFL assistant like Coordinator Assistant to college? Head coach to pro coach head coach in like one year to one and it gets in my life from the other side of your Colorado. You know he's taking that job to get back in the NFL. Like isn't even worth your time for. Right Yeah Colorado's decent program so they're certainly not going to be fucking around with that like it's almo. Mata who cares? Coaching Patrick Mahomes right now. Are you kidding me like a very young Patrick Mahomes? No listen I mean if you didn't take this job now mahomes thirty nine forty could fall off the rails at any moment is like twenty six twenty five one of the Super Bowl. The dislocated his knee. Coming off the year we won. Mvp His first year. Starting get rid of that guy go shows which you can do against Colorado state air. Then maybe we'll take you seriously. That's incredibly funny now. Until Doug Peterson our matinees dumb shit. I'd say the vast vast majority of NFL head coaching jobs. Coming from assistant coaches. Yeah but I mean. He's under the Andy Reid. Tree can't take it seriously. Man Doesn't stay in that tree out. That's terrible spots. Either I get I if he wants to be a head coach someone should definitely IRA him. But if I'm him I'm just chilling. That's the thing like he's been interviewing and people will. Maybe he's not interviewing where you mean to tell me Adam. Gays walked into an interview and like completely nailed it multiple. Yeah it keep keeps doing. He should have been used to be the jets jibe right now if he wants it but now at this point I wouldn't take a job to take a job. I just right out home staying out but yet when it comes he he should if he does he'll be a number one on everybody's coaching list next year. Like he was this year if he goes Sex in five for the roster did Pecking College. He'll never get a job like you have to start from the Absolute Bud Quality Control Assistant Coordinator for Eddery. If some reason doesn't trust them anymore either was like gay slips in his offense coordinator. Like have you seen what he's done with. This mahomes unbelievable. Yeah that's horrible logic. Mcdaniels took a job last year. Then reneged and still interviews. This this offseason. So that's the that's the privilege speaking. You get to say privilege shit like that when it's like I mean just just take the head. Coaching job woman. The next job comes up. Just take that one was like no. You don't understand Bryan floors. If they ended up being as bad as people thought he might. He might be done here almost one day and then he almost want to many games. He was almost done for doing that. Hasn't Steve Wills had one bad year out for the for that he got fired and got a chance to work for Freddie Kitchens a coal game and now I'm looking right now. I don't think he's anywhere. Yes see nowhere right now. Good good although it's still early. I will be surprised feet. Ill End up somewhere. Somebody's assistant a backup linebackers coach L. Fisher and I was looking to be a good job but Willing to say do think ballot check was even in an interview like probably not right. Yeah like if you're going off that of like the people who as I think of? Nfl coaches. I think picture will probably be the only person good interview. Just because he he just jump on the table and take your shirt off and the owners like this guy m the rams coach whose name I'm blanking on it the future of gouging Yeah I bet he was gone. They speak the lingo is banning. The game is all life like I'm sure he crushed that interview. Yeah the bubbly a college Shanahan. We all know how he'll talk your ear off. A guys won't stop drinking on the side as gregarious as they go andy. Reid show up like a Hawaiian shirt and shorts knows his shit clearly. But he's he's killing the interview. Ohka brought a bunch of ribs. They were like this Guy Vance. Joseph got to get to years and got the right to work for cliff. Canes was a failed college coach. That's working out so to their credit but just hire like man oh man event and also worked up to the tune of five win selected exact right. Yeah Yeah it's like. Oh we're GONNA win three. Wow TRAFFIC WELDS TO JACKSON RIGHT. Now is a joke as a head coach. No he should never get their consideration. Maybe ever again right. But as an offense. Any kind of assistant or coordinated. He was good everywhere he went. That's what I'm interested to see. I know this was a joke to but Jason Garrett in that role is another Jason Garrett Gold will listen if you can if you can get Texas A and M Back in order. Maybe we'll know he just got a different job. We always got twice a year continues. We know he's got. He was in such a unique like rem enough. He's going to be good or bad at the job. I'm interested to see it with like not the most meddling owner of all time. It's just like hey do we can do. Let's see who who's the head coach? There the giants do. Yeah Joe. Judge Goja ain't to him that Dumb Shit. Look Johanna your coach and special teams in wide receivers. Maybe WANNA go. You know if you can whip comes into shape proved metal around you know what I mean to be fair. He was seconds away from putting pen to paper Mississippi State and I would have been. He was like wait a minute. Yeah skip this step what am I doing? I'm going to New York. And they were like thank you for returning calls Joe Exist and we just wanted to save the gumption to take a college and now that we know you do is a seven year deal. You'll coach for two of it but who was like. Who did he replace? It wasn't mcadoo. Was He'd been gone now. It was an old browns. Coach was fucking That's an armor. Yeah Pat Shurmur Yes aware Shurmur. Now let's is often according to the broncos Delicious Man Oh man whiskers most qualified for the job. He'd get it you don't think about the Dui Abi Enemy had ninety two do you What about when that comes up in the interview is that they have that? Yeah like nine hundred ninety two or whatever somewhere pointed out I was like I'm not saying that's the reason but I'm not saying it's not the reason somebody like linked to the groom's head to and he's got into different jobs since then he's got a corona deal for a decade so the gymnastics is about some hill. Max Contract being just a superstar. Now I that I don't. That's been the strangest a story line. I did not see coming this offseason. He's a start you know be passes through last year Helen. Because there's something I was about to look up because I saw the other day. It made me laugh from Evan. Burchfield tastes him hill in the. Nfl is six thirteen for one hundred. Nineteen yards forty. Six percent completion percentage. And somebody I think is saints or somebody says it goes like. I think he's got a better armed. Lamar Jackson he should use it. Maybe you should use it on one of these. Thirteen throws Mohamed. Sanu Seven for eight two hundred thirty three yards four more touchdowns 'cause tests millstones it and every through one of the playoffs. This year right. They had the one fifty are strike. Which is a great hero. Yeah now for sure at that. I'm not even saying like Oh some like like if someone maybe should have a shot before this sure. I have no problem with outside the box. Thinking saying he's one of the premier like Soma called top fifteen. Only those I mean drew brees is iron man so it's not like he would miss five games in a row and you'd have a chance to see say takeover he's also older than Teddy Bridgewater which is very funny. He's old is so goddamn old. Yeah I I didn't know he was that old Which is not as he stays started. I think I gave him college. It was like twenty three or something because he did his mission. Byu To make sense did So yeah I wasn summit out. There wants to like if if you're the dolphins and you take two. He's not gonNA play this year. He just wanted to try some shit for a year. Yeah God give it a whirl. I don't think there's an that people be like no. No no this guy. If you really look like stats. This guy's the guy I wouldn't even do if he will be fine if he was not backup. Quarterbacks your quarterback number two but we're also still gonNA use you the gadget stuff right here using him. We by weak and people game plan for that like even. He rushed for one hundred six yards last year. Less than ten. I get like it's not even like yeah. He's clearly like Lamar's rookie year and FLACCO. Starting they'd still bring lemoynes. I okay yes like this guy just needs more touches the FLACCO and getting or NASCAR rush for smooth. Three hundred fifty two yards over the last two seasons caught nineteen passes year for two hundred thirty four yards again. Yeah the trick. Play when it works. It works even in playoffs included. He's still below. Fifty percent. Completion percentage touchdown based on those numbers. Isn't there better case to be made that he should be a wide receiver than anything. Oh but that's what I'm saying. You like okay he again. He's still keeping number two but if six years carry lashing twelve yards or catch. Let's see if we can bump those up first before we started talking about the third former saints special teams coach. Mike Westhoff take a look at Baltimore. It's the same Kinda Guy. Does the same kind of things with Lamar Jackson. I think he throws better. That's the kind of football player he is the MVP twenty-three type listen. They both lose playoff games. I don't think it's unfair to say I mean. I wish I could say that for tastes in the. He was the second best quarterback to saint suited up their game. Let's let's do that for a full season. I've got Mlb Network on Mute. And I didn't know what the SANGOMAS I just looked up and it was an older black man talking to Harold Reynolds relatives just bawling his eyes out the other guys just talking. It's rule change what I can't believe. It looks like it's Some are longer special on the Negro League Hall of fame which makes more sense but just look up and see that was jarring. How TV works at all. Yeah I don't know what's going to happen with obstinate lags patriots. Pay Him as a running back for. I pay a running back as a running back. Bam at all trying to find a tweet from sharp football stars around every single but every single veteran running back on pre twenty nineteen deal over four million a year average less than four yards. A carry in their team had regrets. Curly Girlie who might get cut but might not cause Only 'cause the dead cap. David Johnson had four touches game last month. Got His job taken by Kenyan drake who they might not resign. Devante Freeman would probably miss half the game due to injury. Jerick MCKINNON WHO Torres. Ac On two thousand eighteen twenty eighteen and nineteen the more melanomas twenty nineteen ACL and MCI in Dion Lewis whose name we didn't hear at all now in their run to the conference finals. Their Conference Championship. I even know like which running backs are in this drab swift swift's in this one the swift's in this one From Laura's Constan the dude from Florida State Fan now for sure not undrafted eighth-round looking now because I'm not a deep class receiver draft. Everyone knows that receiver and apparently like left and right tackles aplenty. Sound perfect to me. I just drilled one of those ever ended up with four receivers in three left tackle. We'll see how they make it work. Five Dolphins I WOULD. I would definitely consider taking two and two receivers to receivers with devante Walker. Forget it suggests as tier one Deandra with Jonathan Taylor to tear to Dobbins from Ohio state Zac MOSS FROM UTAH. Camakers from Florida state. Camakers right Mcfarland is that he says. GotTa be right Anthony McFarland Junior lsu. Now I went to Maryland. That's only the booklet that age. Von a cloud Edward Solaire from lsu Ryan from Florida. Another P Ryan. Oh yeah a lot of the tier. Four guys is leak from Maryland. Aj Dylan Mobile. So yeah plenty of these on. I don't know where Dobbins or Cloud over two layers projected to be drafted because I would just take Edwards earlier in the fourth. And just be. He's just my skeptic Has Ever seen. He's a SCAP act but he's also a bowling ball like he's monster. You and being sit swift projected around one Taylor projected wanted to. Moss wanted three cloudy too late yet to three in Dobbins two to three acres to. That's the sweet spot. I feel like I think when I looked like most of these guys are getting talent in value like third round. Us like commodities. I think David Johnson. I was second round around. Show was second round Yeah no running bags no tidings first round very outside UN's cannot do Chelsea wouldn't even for a first round tight ends in the super bowl either. Makita was barely off anyone's draft board. Both I don't think Jason Kelsey went that I'd like somebody missed on two all pro championship winning brothers as wild six round pick. Jesus I didn't know it was. Travis was a third round. I think that I would only want third round picks come to think of at spellcheck whole life. But you don't have it on NATO is ever. He just wins and free agency and only free agents say I got. It will not stop spending money like the idea. Broncos is guys and Chris Carson was fifth in the League and Russian man who was a two hundred forty nine mixing with Second Round Dowden with Second Round Andrew. Undrafted he was. He got hurt though. If I snuck in at the end of the first he was a forty first overall. Marlin Mac Fourth Round Jones fifth round. I can't do it man. Ever Coleman was what fourth I think the rest of their running backs coach drafted Philip Lindsay. Carlos Hyde was into the second round. Won't do it now. This is Michael. Pay Christian. Mccaffrey a lot of money. Dare carry a lot of money for net. Might even get paid by Jacksonville. It might who knows age still rushing for nine hundred yards. You won't stop. I think that'd be my strategy like the third third or fourth round guy and just get one of these old guys like it's always just a a finger soon or Frank Gore. A Mark Ingram like somebody's just like like man you got seven hundred fifty yards the Yup coup. Carlos highlight came out of nowhere. Had Eleven hundred yard season this year. Three teams this year was to last year to this year. It was a lot of teams bought a team sleep. It's the night he was only Houston this year. Last year was yet Cleveland Jacksonville Day Cutler must have got cut preseason than probably southeast side outright. Yeah but didn't fucking Chiefs Cut Probably. I think the chiefs cut him to sign shady. Let's see if shady another one. Can you give me? I just need six hundred yards from you this Yeah he signed with the chiefs. They traded him for an offensive. Tackle ranking say taxing hat and tackle the To give up why we don't need the breeders the MOSTER tes. Imagine paying Gordon. Some God bless him. He didn't get a deal right. Court has no. He's he's all right on the walls like how come back. I'm just might not get paid fifteen hundred Tokyo Acura. I was listening to. Pf did their first like off season Podcast and it was a lot of like they did the top hundred one players from last year and they started talking draft arsenic care member. What the status they had for him. But I'd like crazy season for running back crazy. One of the more efficient running back catch seasons in catch wise ever. He was undrafted. Yeah Jordan how was a fifth rounder in and I don't even know what he got traded it was less than a fifth rounder as one of those conditional ones I from seven to eight. That's abandoned twenty twenty six so yeah finally One of those guys Jordan. Howard asked him. I just wants to get off of six nine ers an old guy that's yards if get back throws a mockery. Runamuck Shady McCoy was four hundred. Sixty five yards this year. Four point six five the key suited up in the playoffs at all. We just didn't we just got to get to the playoffs that's it do. Johnson was had for nothing. It patties. You build your whole backfield and preseason for sure instead and yeah for other issues running it you do that while he ran for exactly for attending call for exactly four hundred four point nine Kerry nine yards of kitsch. When when Duke Johnson retires? We're GONNA look at his. His pro football reference page and be like this guy is a hall of fame. This is the best player. I've ever seen what happened. Where was this guy? Got THE FACE OF THE LEAGUE CLEVELAND. So he got a conditional fourth Third if he's on the Texans for ten games which worst that'll be a third rounder gotta stick price but even then like if he's Bill O'Brien any worried about the St pray. Our draft draft picks also and he was available because Kareem Hunt was available. You could just wait for fuck up. Oh Yeah if you don't morals listen if you're not got boroughs you can build yourself one to help football chiefs just want all Frank Clark Terry Keel holding the trophy Boy You could assign marshawn Lynch for the last month season. Have everyone happy. Neil it. Why not they were Who is the fucking running back? Who was on the panthers forever and then finished with Pittsburgh Daniel Williams? Yeah like the guy like that is like one of those guys always available. No one wants that he ends up being like a guy you add second week and fantasy and he he's like a linchpin to your team for the rest of the season am boy Levian. Bell was out. He scored eight touchdowns and six. We like it kept us in the playoff race. We needed those six weeks when he was on the scrapheap yeah. He went to his lash in Carolina. Two hundred nine hundred yards and six games didn't went to Pittsburgh and ran for nine hundred seven yards eleven touchdowns four four and a half yards a gear at twelve hundred. Seventy four yards from scrimmage. Nasa's no I can't do anything with that for a semi GonNa take the address with like twenty seven. Wow The seahawks just get it pairing with shot Fannie de Andrea Swift. Tko headed occurred. If you think you have someone like you. I I know I'm GONNA use this for five years on. I just want to pay him like a million dollars to be my bell cow and then someone else can pay him. I don't hate taking one at the end of the first but then again you can also just get one in the second for four years. It's not a huge difference. It's wishful thinking extra fifth. When if sucks about that? Yeah that's part of it and also like a skin to a point now like it's okay. They should have did that with Zeke. When these guys are GONNA hold out. It was like okay. I see what you're GONNA do. I'm GonNa beat you to their punch like McCaffrey should absolutely hold up. Should be was top ten. So He's obviously all out to get more. There's no doubt but he's getting probably what like six or seven this year a couple years ago? He's year he just finished you four. You're just finishing four and five. He should absolutely hold out and they should absolutely telling himself. And both sides of me right would he did you. Pro Football reference in basketball reference aren't the same when it comes to now contracts which is why this past year he made up on. May four seventeen. Yeah about four and some change a year. Yikes because he's a top ten. If the fifth option I think is the average of the top ten running bags which fifteen dollars that does nothing need. He also does panthers owner. Now I feel like the tail. Keep sitting in this guy talking when I keep seeing the owner to talk this much. Were what are you trying to do like asks about? Can he could have just said. We're waiting to see these healthy. He could have said we're moving on which is a healthy. We'll talk in a way. That was not the best of my. What what's what's the point why. What's the leverage there Don't allow talking these damaged goods no WANNA trade or sign sign up now you can for cheap. Let me completely plumbers value. Last I saw Cam. Newton couldn't stand up straight trae form if you want a good tipper i. There's a lot of these tempers tappers around I know one of them's a piece of Shit And so that makes all the rest of them like. I don't know which one's which Ronald but that one but I know this one say okay. Let him go. You can go on with the will greer there you go. What are you GonNa Kyle? Ellen thing that there's there's a growing in the draft community Gerry Judy. Cd LAMB debate breaking out. And I'm so happy to have just picked both of them clearly team judy. But it's GONNA be sick too. I think it's going to be just incredible. Also now but he's not in the yours precarity because he didn't have enough deebo rush for letting yards and carry. Oh yeah last year and was doing it in the playoffs. I'm I'm close to not need running back off. Real close as This dude I think Colorado levesque's Chenault who we talked earlier this year. Is this guy this draft? Whose NAME WE OUT NOW. I know it now but I I know he came into the thinking was preseason was a Belinda Gov at the receiver would yeah yeah I think. Here's preseason he got that Amend the Judy's lamps not higgins took off but this dude was like their wildcat running back also there number one receiver. I liked it. They're like if you just want to take this guy planet running back. You can do that to like. I'm praying Lynn. Goes to just smart team. I don't even care if the I just hope smart and they will get some right Gus Edwards. Another one undrafted and five hundred yards of this year. How satirist incredible over two seasons in backup do these two hundred seventy carries for fourteen hundred twenty nine yards five point three hundred ravens got ham and they got Running back that. Can I count Dixon and Dixon? Every time he's he plays he's good but he's hurt are getting suspended so that's a troublesome even if you're not doing it we'll get Edwards or ingram or Lamar. Jack's some hill to pick up the rhys football wise. I am glad now scarce back in the league though that was great they just waited for a day really paying attention. They just slip that news out there. No no one gave a shit told you meant it. What whatever spending he got. It was not coming into next season. They don't WanNa have to answer questions all over again for six games for assault with a deadly weapon even Steven. Yeah because like when everyone reports back the That'll be a story but it will be. There will be so many other things happening at won't even be a lead but so he played a perfectly missed a year a month and a half of a wear and tear on his body a bad year out so funny as a balked.

Vive the jolly awesome billionaire. Eccentric mercurial out. That word was for exactly. Two people of them is Rondo the other ones Koby. Yes the Eccentric V. Background Aviv as FROM BASKETBALL TO AT BASKETBALL CAR. Kyle from NBC. Report Colon Vivek renovated frustrated by kings underachieving. Common passing on Luca Chick in your head. I would a man on the moment he found out about Luca was. You're probably this season based on weather. Report game about looks great man. Wow who's double sevens out there? We've known this. Cut His hair man. Dirk steelcase is and so. That's a look good dodge y where I mean. Were they this. Guy From League. Would they call him from you? Went to pick after Marvin after who? I'm just picturing like he looks at me as I got other. Jokic Yoga right someone to win the second round now. I never heard of them. Just happen to bust on saying that now inside more hype coming into the leaks and project what I wouldn't give to draft that guy or I mean velocity along the we had that kind of chance deterrence. Just the timing of the report is what kills me. The most this report should have come out like the day he was drafted via Baxter's. What who's going to outlast? Who would it should probably be a clean sweep like Vladi and Walden? It itches. Ain't Shakin I think any of the three of them should still be there. I know which one ain't GonNa go. I'm driving y'all can figure out who's the shotgun is troublesome. They made quite the leap last year. Just follow like a stone at mass magnify like a sinking donut. Dallas the seventy is kind of been like not talked about Luke Debt Long. Yeah right because I got off to the hot start. They were sixteen started sixteen and six and today there thirty two in twenty two. Donte was missed last six games. Were there three and three so I feel like they basically like five hundred Boston. Yeah which is fine. But there's an only noticed because I got a check in on the thunder and it's like Oh okay there's solidify the playoffs by okay the seven. Okay there's six now. There are two games behind five. Which is the rockets? But then I was like wait. Who'S MOVING DALLAS? That's actually fourteen fourteen at home Yeah it's a our even our. It's as much like obviously they have control over this thing. They could play better but Houston found their footing. Utah FOUND THEIR FOOTING. And the two. La's Denver. I've just been up there pretty much all along so yet. I'm playing. Five hundred is enough to make you fall out of Maybe homecourt in the first round seven seed. Listen you gotta get this ninety six onto K. You came playing. Five hundred ball works now while they do exactly what they do. I will say I'm hopeful. Now they engaged the slide answer. Is it active tonight? Does he was active last night. It's bigger than now biometric. Using because again. I'm still in the desk. I think he's just a center now. Well especially if if the Houston with PORZINGAS. Four or five Chris. Apple's going to spread the court. You can work inside. Need to really feed him. The ball offensively either anyways. But that's the thing but yeah him if you put him in a pick interro. It's more effective than him. Being your stretch for whatever because there just no show tend to serve you do that. Yes the random with the shoes that they normally have like. They gotta fill those two white parliament as somehow I think. Oh Yeah Cali Cali style get some of that he can do some the pick and roll but I really think I think they should just play my center. Just let him be your small boss center. He's like he's strong. Enough is big enough like when when you get. The five shooting doesn't matter as much not. He's a great passer. But if you're moving that passing was the small for now he's five. He says make the one extra pass he needs to in fifteen minutes again. I'm not saying like just stardom but you've got your new center. But if they brought him in he completed the five on offense and defense switch everything with everybody else for a couple of minutes over works. Dallas also now has the highest shooting curry in NBA history from three. I'm surprised it took that long. Listen we saw us. F getting work in last Last All star break. Who's working on? The stroke has paid off. I didn't see Steph getting working now at this. It's all all I'd say about the matter. Wait a minute twenty four minutes ago. Don-shik is playing tonight. Why ONE GAME. Before the all-star let why so we can loosen up for the All Star game there. Okay that was lager than thirty while ago. Dodgers play is not just the twenty eight running back for one game before the all-star break what could go wrong. That's it I feel the same bed and be like wild. Keep saying he's still clearly hurt. Why is he playing? I don't know why Jalen step foot on that court last night. Boy On why anybody. We'll get it actually which one you WanNa talk about. Because I was marcus. Smart always plays well in Texas. But he wasn't. The problem wasn't a solution needed because they give them bugs Galore. Yeah it's pretty easy. When the Sonics lose because officiating they lost because they should only person who To people showed up with a level of intensity and it was. Jaylen Brown. Marcus Mark Resolute. Team look like last year's Day and it was really sad but shown with talent. You can keep the intensity. Marcus I need you to fucking hit more threes than tatum and Kemba combine in recent Howard and got those right. Yeah hardened was scarring on everyone. Jalen rose with no ankles was strapped up rows than the second. He got out of the Game Restaurant. Fucking CRAZY RUSS was three for ten start again. Jalen mostly govern them Jalen. He saw length meet wasn't even that it was the celtics most of the League. Watch that for how not to play which is like They don't have a center so let's put all of our people in one area. This'll be hard to defend like. I don't understand what their thought process for attacking team with no center was. But they're getting out rebounded and they. They they played to. Houston rather than trying to anyway. I think that's one of the things. Houston betting on like it's so easy to just want to turn it into a three point shooting contest and say well they they went small. We have to go small. Don't you? I mean Russell Westbrook guarded by first team. All Defense Marcus. Smart last night. Oh yeah about six field. Goals also drew three shooting fouls four five twenty one six years one of the fouls was a Russell. Westbrook elbow to the Ribs which was an an one because markets might collapse in a heap and Russia's went although Later then I couldn't believe there were. There were moments of that game where they were blowing the whistle on both ends and like twenty seconds of game clock would come off the time over like five for real world minutes and it wasn't even a one way or the other thing. It was just bad bad. Officiating game was borderline watchable and it wasn't even because Houston was doing a lot. 'cause I guess other fans being like I can't believe they keep calling fouls and I was mad at the reps. Just because they wouldn't stop interjecting like they. They didn't set any tone for the game. Some things that will like there was no consistency in what they were calling. You don't know what they're gonNA call right if you're going to be if you're going to be bad be consistently bad you just didn't know what the fuck was coming from them. Given moment you just know a whistle was probably going to COBB. The fact like we the way we got the lead at halftime made me hopeful for the fourth and then we got it within three and then hard hidden and one three out of time out to make it seven and that was that so's infuriating. I don't know why Stevens even brought. Kanter to that game Stevens got out coach. Bad in that game. Real bad I don't I don't like the Jason Tatum was like I'm not going to three to I know whiskers a on me listen. He didn't hit threes. Hit Two's hit free throws thought. He played a good defensive game now. I met a couple of really Nice Defensive. Plays but it wasn't there as I've said all year about tatum. A jalen jailings better at offense. Tatum's better at defense. That shouldn't be the case but it is no one's brain has got up so that yet now that it never will again. That's the stigma. What is jalen Brown aggressive specimen defensive mastermind? Tatum a silky smooth Mississippi. Nobody's doing this slick racist. We go right. They're not sleep wrong. Breath is forty five point. Twelve prisoner like listen prodigiously. That transition defense is guy just gets out is aggressive after it tatum. Ten straight threes NRO. Boiler footwork my God to finesse at that age y giant actually murdered a man. I ask not. It was at the time that was thrown. Tristan Thompson jumped but veteran decision midway and dude jumped out of the way in the way otherwise. Yeah that would have been murder okay. So it's just a nice dog. Yeah Nah not highlighted as I was like let me see that angle but that makes all the difference for Tristen One thing I'm waiting for people to catch up to Tatum Is a mediocre handles? Like he does he just does a lot of it has a lot of dribbling. Amman's by he's able because he's long to get that like sidestep jumper which has been good this year. It's better than his eighteen foot. Step back he's got this new sidestep. It's good but it does a lot of dribbling ahead of time but he really doesn't need to And he can't pass you just can't pass. That's what he gets that attribute. I've seen a lot of people being like is is almost at that superstar level like first of all he just got to all-star which I still think is is rock but he got to all-stock all right make we know you hate to give it up. That's made his handles are they're they're not bad by any stretch but I feel like he gets this huge boost because of his supposed like no he just dribble on spot 'cause when he does it in the sidestep and it goes down or it looks good for sure for sure but it's like actually like did he go because hardened does that a lot to harden has better handles but harden does a lot of Let me dribble dribble. Like I'm GonNa take the same shot I was. I was GONNA take but I'm GONNA do some dribbling the dribbler. I don't know why nicknamed kills me. It's not like creative originally. But every time. Like shucks kills me. Aren't yesterday leg maybe when it was in a celtics. Tv game delegate. Once Jalen Brown gets at handle together and let me just watching like walks to the rim apply carve wade through the again. It's not perfect by far. But it seems pretty functional. It Jalen Jalen Zia one too if he tried to dribble through more than it was like Avery Bradley when he tried to dribble through more than two one and a half. People just didn't know where they're going to be in his hands. That's all you gotta as I think about that might be the toughest guilty light. Pickup IS I don't know who went from. Who's like to tighten their hand to announce their wizard with the ball? Yeah it's it's never tighten your handle where you go from average to like Iverson but it's always like out now you can actually like not just get stripped everytime you start dribbling like you at the jumps the jumps from poor the adequate. It's never from poor to like are now. He's got a canvas bag where the fought to that. Come from even the guys who don't habit you either go and get stripped or Wiggins like you just stop trying Up I won't get stripped if I can get from the three point line to seventeen feet by. That's no problem right now. Eight even Jalen handles of certainly improved but I feel like he knows how to and I think this is the skill a Lotta guys get From College to the League you just not use your body as a shield the space between yourself and the ball when you when he does drive and Walls Pass People. Your words not mine. He just like watches body in the way he liked twists and just uses that as like. You can't get to the ball because it's just a six seven v-shaped back in your face. You can't rip through that US. The blood which is watch every single Leonard Everything 'cause Six two tall six two. And it's like yeah. You're just you're not gonna get to the ball. You're not going to get a handle my shot. None of this yet. there's nothing exceptional exceptional about. Kawais handles and even watching him. He looks like he's going slower than everyone else on the court because he's just calculated is like all right. I'm GonNa take two troubles delight. I'm going to do a half up fake. And then when they start to sit back on their heels is what. I'm going to rise up at a seventeen foot jump. Shot is also dribbling a tennis ball correct under adrenals weird on the Jersey. I think a look weird on on the Hawks Jerseys too but we shall see when he's really share a small game fucking sucked at Nope. No point that I have fun watching that game. I'm sure you didn't coming off of Kentucky. Window less throwing good. I'll say I was more upset. Dugway more upset with gambler than I am. Tatum stand up. Never shows up in those big games. Do I over? I've said that before he doesn't I'm waiting for it. I'm going to be thrilled when he does. But it's just not if that's also true it just hasn't been is Is Not like Hayward Hayward played while yesterday to. Yeah if anything. I think you should have been more aggressive earlier. But he showed up. Jalen showed up before he was peeled off the court And and Marcus showed up offensively Marcus tried to throw a pass through like nine. People didn't work go on a couple weeks ago. I think is a lack for all star. But he won't get the All. Mba talk wrong wrong on. He's incredible. I love westward. After like he might he might slide into second team might be him. Dang. Bff's on second team depend on with. Luca does come back tonight. That's why he's Gone. Back Russell. Snake it up on my Allenby spot. I'll say if it Luca really got division longtime. He caught on. I mean you don't want their pressure young man you get the biology lesson. He was first team year. Two was next Lifan. Heat Lamar Jackson of all some and I'll at regular season to win a playoff game and then by net once you get the NBA. We'll let you want playoff game. Congrats what they do. You got to win it all now. So Luca slip a little bit like thirteen. Thirteen thousand Nice Progression I think seconds all right career win with the second team. You see data as Thomas. I think second guard the Second Team. Second guards products. I Hope Kendrick. Parkinson's listening for he just threw up with you saying that name makes me WANNA hurl. Our network showed a stat teammates in the history. The have nine war in the same season and it was Griffey and a Rod Seattle and it was Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig who can head and it was Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig and it was also Babe Ruth Lou Gehrig. There are four of them ever. That is a great thing about the old like. It was the way this works. Why would we break this up? And now we gotTA GET HIM BEING SIMMONS. Apart shack and penny note like nobody run-up rain rings like these dynasties don't last last no times a slight. Listen guys. We got a good thing. We could run up eleven and thirteen years if we want to be. I want to do that. Yes Happy Birthday Bill Russell. You saw the name Trinity. Get real worry at said. Well actually I take back that we brought apologies on yet another year Mr Russell. I know They bring a cake in for him and he just he just karate. Chops Alive Badgen. They're just like well. Oh we can't pay Havlicek and Russell we gotta pick one well. I think we do more for Russell. It'd probably fit more around. Unhappily chip. Digman are dying but they just started. What do you be? One of? The basketball counts Out just some of Russell's stats. He had like a thirty and fifty game. Put sit even look like sure. I'll take that rebound wasn't the was Bill Russell. Lil overrate et terrible. That's that's what I was looking forward to about. The future is when we can and these debates by just Cloning a twenty one year old Bill Russell and just putting him into the NBA. Whenever we want to see what happens. Yeah listen you can watch them. Clan Oklahoma City every night as plainly only same player so wildly disrespect sloppy with his idea of Nerlens. Noel is is slamming for some happy birthday. Being of things I enjoyed last night. I enjoyed watching Marcus. Morris Watch the markets more sure. Yeah that was that was troublesome. That's exactly I mean that's what you get when you get Marcus Morris. Yeah I didn't. I didn't think he'd do like him wanting to put a stay again. You're going to jail the first day. Knockout the big guy. I primetime game. I gotTA guess involved Kim Marcus Morris. Senior said Marcus Morris senior there. That's what he'd like. They had to have known that when they acquired him. No like did they think those go any other way by the way he was even the problem. Paul George stick it up. The joint was the problem. Let's talk about it. Was the best player on the court last night. Ten twelve ball teams here. Yeah both teams. 'cause I could. You could make that case for. Just the clippers Last Night Ben. Simmons was the best player on the court to say although Jesuits gave held to everyone involved. He like if he's going to do that. Like you guys handled the first three-quarter stuff. I'll just handle the ball in the fourth quarter. If they'll be tough to beat I can't even say he only came alive. He went off in the fourth quarter but even throughout the entirety of the game like any time. La would close like anytime la would go on their run. He would stop it for you like no no. That's not what's happening here today. This is one of the highest plus minus on either side plus twenty four in a single. Game plus minus. You can't take anything but it's like no that feels right the Catholic so Pala charge you. I feel like Zellerbach at least for half the Games. Really good Us Battle Paul. George Poor Leo Alley Horford as much as we've been given him. He was better than listen came off. The bench key should be well rested. I do think this Philadelphia Team and I pointed out a few times last night They they were allowing the clippers to go on runs when the When the crowd was cheering for Philly the second the crumbs back Boeing Philly Philly regarding fourteen. Run lattice they throw them on. Yeah that so this is more for Celtics fans listening right now. If we get philly in the playoffs were only chairing Villi. There will be no booming philly. That's when they get stronger. We'RE GONNA get swept if we boo. These fuckers onto like standing ovation during the starting lineup Tobias. Let my guard down. These guys love me so yeah that that. Philly? I think it's now becoming. It's a weird way molding into the perfect Philly team. There's GonNa be a point these play offs where they're down like twenty three at home and I can already hear it on like the they're getting booed coming into halftime Yeah you hear those boos like red pandas out there. She's getting booed she's dropping. Balls at crowd is a. There's a blood lost in that crowd and they come out and be just a taste. The whole other team dunks through folk four straight threes was fouled on all four. Because they went for the pump for they can. He shouted player playing with the crowd. That's that teams finding something. Ben Simmons is is. Did you say what he tweeted today? Now what he's a boy. Let me pull this up. I can't tell you those words. It's usually something like did you see instruments tweeted about the weather so he tweeted out. Just a standard. Add My go-to snack. Any given time is I'm not going to do a free ad but it was like a meal. Replacement PROTEIN BAR COMPANY TYPE DEAL JUST STANDARD AD and At Brian Mike Jacobs responded. I of questions in its from that that candy thing. I was telling you about the other day. Where he's on his own like cribs and he shows off his a where he calls Something his favorite candy. So those guys caught in a lie. Simmons uh-huh also responding to his ad so Ben said I shouldn't have to dispel this. But because you're out here trying to expose made dot dot dot a flake. Which is the Australian chocolate by equals candy. Foreign Twenty equals signs snack. Aka Meals on the go. You can continue your conspiracy theories elsewhere now whilst trying pie got his as he dropped a whilst as I got Tristan. Thompson is unstoppable right. Now I don't know what is going on there. It's in Atlanta. Yes now. That was in Cleveland and he hit two threes like win for like the third he checked and of course they went for it so he just pump fake drove to the basket docket he. He's flexing after every single. Play at as a single thing you can do that. He saw those hawks uniforms. He must feel horrors Horford's are in the building Is just went into that mind zone as right mind zone. Crowley or coming off the bench. The first time since Florida now is like. Oh seven rookie. I don't know why he was ever the Jase movement. The Paul George. Yuck combining Kazan. I'm team poetry. Like playoff. Padres gets worse Rep and he deserves or share. 'cause ovals like on the whole his numb like they drop a little bit everybody but Michael Jordan Kawhi Leonard stuff. That's just how the play outs go. But his bad games are moments are so bad and I was going to say I was going to agree with you but he did name himself. Playoff be yeah. I guess they're puts the heat on yourself so I do think it's now deserved. 'cause I last year for its series against the jazz errors. Twenty nine nine boards and four assists. You know people remember remember. Joe ingles given fucking work. 'cause I both yeah. Both things can be true and again. That's one of the things. I worry about the clippers. One of Marcus Morris Paula. Don't have it tonight. I do though he thinks that already to regardless of the night Paul George is having. But that's the thing if Paul George is also having tonight it's like a marcus is on to you. It's not going to beat you. Paul's not marcus was like. I gotTa Take Go Stan Cycle. Why that's going to happen regardless of like. That's just the Marcus Morris experience. That's the ingalls was two years ago was a dame sending abide by my bra again. The bad moments are so bad. That's a terrible moment. He's he's got thirty six points in that game. A you know what I remember him saying. I was a bad shot. Dame whiten a Bible. Alex is on a parade float was the year before game sick where he went to sixteen and scored five points. I remember that I remember well. That was what I wrote was like a door. He can't even lift his his arms to wave. Hello to his neighbors. And then the next game he went off so it was like well that Fly Royal Board so outlet the clippers with both those guys planned taking two on the chin. Lately shame losing affiliates especially at home. isn't shame by the timber wolves. Oh I don't care who they had planned AK house by the Timber Wolves. You just can't not in this climate So I I'm not changing of I had a pig. I'm leaning toward Milwaukee. You might just be the end of that. It's like Wow Milwaukee. Went Four for four four. How do we not see this come? It's certainly on the table. I don't I think it's just going to be one of those things or next year. When are they gonna be like very easily as Janas going to stay or is he gonNA? It's I of course he takes the five-year SUPERMAC. Why would he turned down a while? Nobody's ever left the team that won four straight titles didn't lose a playoff game during the Catholic. The East is is solid like I think the Raptors Assad. I've been the Celtics Solid. I think the sixers and pacers solid he to he to Ukraine S. Forgetting someone all very solid i. I don't like I don't think any of them can beat the bucks dude. He completely honest and I was thinking about it last night as I was watching. Paul George Stink it up if I STAYED WITH TORONTO. Would we even be talking about anyone else? Know this neigh- won forty games right now without him right in fifteen straight and everybody else was hurt if they just swapped out with the the low management but now like the Milwaukee all those teams are good and clearly level below but is like eight. We're finishing with the one seed. So they kinda gotta take each other out. We'll get one zero As of right now it'd be the heat and I wouldn't want to play the heat in the second round but if it's bugsy I'm taking the bus route question it's like okay. We'll like the Celtics Raptors sixers Pacers. Those guys will knock each other out by the time we get the conference finals. We just played. Who's left them right that? It's going to be someone coming out of Lakers clippers. Which is like whoever you think's GonNa win. I don't imagine you think it's going to be a very easy series for whoever you GonNa win like a fucking knife. Fight even nuggets number two now. Like I said Clippers Lakers. Nah No I liked. I think those ought to better. I don't know again if you're giving up one hundred forty two points of the timber wolves it's troublesome like I said I'd ever it's not the most troublesome news I've heard in the last five minutes but we'll get to that You brought up the heat and there is some Some in real time Jimmy Butler revisionist history going on that. I've always thought about it. We need to us. Confine the main tweet that was going around the island was like no shame Louisiana philly infinitely the shame like they didn't hit thirty five threes. They didn't get to the land like forty eight times I boy. That's unsustainable. Now they just put a woman on them. If I if that's what Simmons and Embiid you can do. I feel like Lebron. Anthony Davis could do similar. One would assume we'll see hopefully that. I'm that's only series. I'd be pissed if we don't get a knee. La's yeah don't care. What Ron is like. I'm hoping conference finals. Who's that'd be the best. But I mean clippers six and four in the last same as the Lakers in the nuggets game. So we might see like. That's just the two Three Museum Sarah. It or could be a one four. Both of those are very very clear right now. We'll get jazz conference final. Yuck porn look at sometimes. Underscore hoops gotTA check governor the Chicago Bulls and other area baseball teams. All right. This was yesterday ally as we're recording. Us on Wednesdays this Tuesday Jerry Butler was right about the bills players back in two thousand seventeen news right about Fred Hoiberg. He was right about the softness in Minnesota. He was right about philly being team divided about Damn Time Butler getting the credit rather than being painted the village. Seven thousand retweets thirty two thousand six talk about Jimmy. Butler caused the division in Philly. I'd argue. He causes it in Minnesota. Probably Louisville Chicago's the only one. I'm willing to agree with those man about Chicago's poorly ran for about twenty years now so I have no problem being like all right. Listen Minnesota has to however they like. They made the playoffs and Minnesota with him. So it's like Louie Week. We live players. Who are like all right. I picked my teammates up. That's leadership like these. These guys need some help. I can help a Kobe. He would even By Jerry the first guy to be like I'm GonNa take the scribes and beat the starters. That'll show molested Kobe. Did that all the time players do that. They just don't then announce it publicly to drag those players through the mud and then fuck the stars best are girlfriend. Do coincidentally like I'm picking on like the day after or maybe the day of their practice. Well Rachel Nichols in Minnesota. How convenient to do a sit down. I mean what? Are The odds? Layover airport. Our of this new rivalry where you just hate me versus Liberals Bruin for years Lot vitally violate comes to its fruition. She knew I deserve that. Daytime Emmy Dan so yeah. I would be more than happy to come on here if he had stayed. Minnesota like this. It's not GonNa while I'm going to see things through and I also have no problem with him leaving to be like absolutely. Let's change the history of what happened. Here is insane will toss the thing. Would Minnesota's like there were three. See when he got her absolutely were and it was one of those times where the three through. The eighteen were separated by half a game right. So if he if he got hurt or two games later and they were the seventy again of course if things were different but that's also a part of it. He's not Mr Durable so as well as he's doing right now and they're like I thought they were going to be utterly they'd be this good but even now there are foresee and they're looking at Milwaukee into second round which is something don't want so I mean they're looking what Philly in the first round. It's a need that for five out of the first round. I wouldn't pick him. I don't know but yeah I wouldn't be. I think it's going to six or seven. Whoever wins but yeah I would think it would be like a Philly Foro Zamora washing back but I would pick philly. He's like Hey Jimbo he's he's good he's a really good player so a lot of success and he's he's part of the reason. Miami is like one of the main reasons there's good Bam took a huge step like they're good Doug Robinson Ben Electric Heroes. Great pick like they're a good team. He's the best player on that team. But he's he deserves a lot of that credit. I WANNA just make. It seem like he's bad or anything like that. That was just a tweet. He's also as I look he's never been past the second round about. He got back to one of them or if he did it was when it was de. Rosenstein. I'm looking as ever played more than twelve playoff games. Get people remember like the cooking? Lash the indefintely is four bounces away therefore bounces away from the overtime where the raptors probably would want because ended when fucking championship and get not a knock on Philly or him right. But it's like a like if that shot rimmed out Jimmy Butler finals. Mvp I mean maybe they might not beat the bucks last year so you can't even say like I don't think so. I agree that wasn't a trip to the finals. That shot caused up to a one C oil Boy China by looking at your for you. Maybe putting the conference finals. Nobody's laughed at him about it so I'm sure he has. He hasn't had the Chris. Paul Laugh I don't know if it's some people of look for he might have been their end end of the badge like very early but he's been the league long as hell. It was the twenty twelve year that was the year they lost to the heat in second round in five twenty eleven twenty fourteen. Fifteen they lost in six to the calf. So don't get no shame in either one of those but he awful business history for gathered a made it at the second round glass rings. He's played twelve games three different times in the playoffs. That's the most every other year. It's three five six five also like a pointed out all this stuff. Well I mean what's happened in Miami right again. It's all good to seed where a couple of weeks ago was like. Oh man things are going great eight now the four and it's two games. They might get say slip by. The dams are not beating. Billy affiliates. The foreign owned for so again. We'LL WE'LL SEE. It just seems like it's a thirteen and fifteen on the row. Not Philly bad now. No one's really bad. It seemed like a whole lot of fuss foot again on every three months. Jimmy Butler is the what best plainly I feel like we usually say somewhere between like seventeen and twenty three but this year was. Where was the owner all? Nba teams. What do you think you'll end up on the team? Because I really think it's going to. I don't know if he's got a guard and forward because he didn't get Garf- all-star and if you don't get it for all NBA cow we did. I didn't have my mind trying to. I don't know if I did either so either and as I look. He's made to thirteen so prime. Make another third in the far the Ford Guard thing. So it's like this okay. Top fifteen guided burned to the ground after she left. That was the one year. Minnesota made the playoffs as they did for sure. Cool why that's the goal. If they were the third seed where they like storm into the conference finals. I don't bounce. But that's the Debbie every two weeks miles brown tells Morongo Jimmy Butler. I'm obviously that's like I don't know what about I think he's good. I still think he's like eight to ten best player in the League. Good and we'll see. Let's let's let's count it out right now. Would you rather have a hammer hammer? Lebron James Jimmy Butler. This is bad says no Lebron's Hammer. Anthony Davis Davis Hem or Luca Luca Ham or James Harden who dribble Hammer Russell Westbrook. That's an interesting one. Because if I'm like my Jimmy Butler is my thing retire. You're very good. I just don't think you can be the best player on a championship team of its. Jimmy Butler is my first option or Russell. Westbrook is my first option probably Butler but if it's a guy no Russell Westbrook is willing to be that second option. He's shown at the last two years so if I get Russia's my second converse Jimmy digging like it revolves around me. I Take Rosen. Ero Jimmy Butler is a shooting one percent higher than Russell Westbrook from three. Nobody cares. I know he doesn't take a lot either boot. Russell's pretty much has cut him out all together they both get to the line. A lot and Jim is better. Defend US on again to a player apart. Upgradable Butler okay. So so far we have Lebron a D- Ordinance Luca Hardin Luga Kawai COA yoke yoke The REIGNING MVP. Kobo Butler no honest. So that's seven sweaters suits a healthy staff staff. So that's eight that we say Lillard yet. No Damian Lillard. That's an interesting one because I read like on the court to a player a date Jimmy Butler better. But if I'm taking in everything ought not to worry about dame coming in Boston. As and yet to the media about it might not have to worry about him trying to fuck teammates wise. I'm not as one of those odd. Butler's the better player but if I had a choice at feel comfortable with Daimler Team. I don't like I understand. He's got the defensive edge but dame so much better off pensively out even know that I can't call Jimmy better one. Can we can split that. Like I could see the side of this that Joel embiid read ahead for songwriting. Go embiid because talent was it is best. I think it can be the best player on a championship team. So we're going Siaka route nine right now. That's another individual. I think Butler's better but if I just take like not gonNa have to worry about any of this. It got too drunk to play in the All Star game. He's calling a called car. Larry Margus all soft and practice. He's looking to leave and play for four teams in two months but as a better plow aside butlers better okay Zaylon Williamson. I can't man kicked off your series on one hundred percents right now. It's like boy. Oh boy is the six point NBA. There's a small Elliot yesterday like one. He just keeps rising to he. Dunked so fucking hard and what how. How is that a guy even game eight? How is that a guy you're just not accounting for? How do you let him get that free? Run to the RIM and a half court does. I don't know if it was like listen. We try. He jumped over our head. What do you want us to do like my give? Roy Hibbert back in the lead via the Elias. Sports Bureau Zayed's the fifth player in the last ten years to have a thirty point game. Within his first ten career Games Williamson was also the fourth fastest number. One pick to have his first. Thirty point game was as ninth. Game is the fastest since Allen. Iverson Iverson Dude. His first game like you can't get faster than that just came out the gate. Yeah he's a This is also what do even know. If he's one fully recovered now is to learn how to rotten fan so we get dead in two. He's still getting into game chicken. There's ten and also not like step was brought up fully healthy enough like durant in August. Two of course what percentage would durant have to be for you to take? Jimmy Butler thirty If durant couldn't ever get past like sixty percent durant we knew beforehand. Who you taking even if it's sixty percent as like you know what? I'm just a fulltime five now. I'm still going to read like my off time. I got put on up to two fifty five now because I'm seven five. I can do just enough and I'll be the best drudge. Five you ever seen without Yogis towns like all come on national. Tv Rondo or Jimmy Butler boy. It's a conflict that the same person. It's like the lights on push all right. That's fair play. Those definitely ten. And that's not even counting like Paul George which that I even had forever the people's another healthy one. Oh yeah that one thinks closed even even with Vic Vic St- obviously the nicer person by a lot Basketball skills not a huge gap. So I would go with vic but I would argue if someone's like no it's all right. I want like Gobert but screen getting like like this range like the range of like he's in like twelve to twenty. It really is you. Because I think he's in the mix with like despite what happened with them at the townsend mix go bear trying to think of anybody else injured like. I think he's got more skills than Klay Thompson. Begin Klay Thompson. Give a exactly what he can and cannot do. He's calling teammate. Us for Hogging the blunt as it not top fifty clay guests thanks Booker Butler but as getting booked punishing people in the paint and also getting passable defense. I don't know how long that lasts the right now. Bubba about Angolan con like isn't turn like for a game series would assign a Max to know if you just need. Its own for this season as not even drought now but you had them all year two. Butler ORCA Ben. Simmons can build a team the way I want it do you awhile. It's like just like of all thirty teams in your just dropping. Ben Simmons on that roster so whichever roster you'd say smoking because he's dropped onto the worst possible like this is also a gift to his credit. He went there and shows like this. Butler best case. They've got the big ZIGA. Move shooting around him. You didn't do all the ball handling he's guessing spacing. They've got a solid bench. They got a good coach front office and to his credit he was. That's where I wanna be the six months. We'll see if they go out in the first round again he's GonNa Take Langdale Who just came to mind no one? No one's coming mind. I can think at Lake trae like this. No but soon is going to be. Let just for the offense of impact alone. I was thinking bills since he's asking like thirty. So get Hughes. He's in that. Mix for sure address. lossing this before. Sometimes things would be good with Jimmy like in the playoff. They was all wearing headbands. It was like it was like oh boy. Butler stays yeah. They've really got something didn't stay. Oh boy towns butler. He's exactly what they need or the third didn't stay both Butler man. I drafted him. Brought him up the perfect guy to take over from instead. Here Georgia's interesting because again if it's a as the one option I'd probably go Butler but if it's Paul George just accepted that he just wants to be a number two guy a really good friend than probably go Jim Playoff. Nothing's now I share. Not bolers numbers in the Playoffs Happen. Good so he gets there. Somebody he's tanking now. He's he's really good. I'LL SAY FOR JUSTICE FOR JUSTICE YEAR. Not for the foreseeable future justice year. Jerry about Chris Paul Bulloch. I think Chris Paul is a he. He's a floor razor butlers. A ceiling razor that makes sense you drop onto any team and they would win eight to ten more games than they did last year. Roger later but Lonzo the hawks. He's just going to yell at people terribly but you drop them on like a pretty good team. They were four balances away from cut down the nets. Yeah like no Chris Paul GonNa lose or win less than thirty games but a jury. Bala team could win anywhere from eighteen to sixty games in the playoffs. He plays was at the solid ball. He plays is playoff basketball. Like that's just how he plays and that's why I'm really interested to see how they work out like this postseason again. I got I got to baby. Board is there. I want them to cook. I wanted to go great but again of right now. They don't WanNa see Philly in the first round even if they win. And that's not something you want to get out of them. Walk Right into Milwaukee would you take him into Butler seventh? I'm I'm all in one sentence just last week you want him. Tried to Golden State Fun to seven dyke obsessed with players. Who CAN Play a leak defense on one position let alone people who can play five handed the ball at. He's he's shorter Janas with better handles. And better passing ability but it can't completely takeover game offensively like yacht us but maybe could in a better situation these. These terrified Simmons terrify. I guess last night he was like yeah plea like pushing people around like you're not going to switch off me Kawai. Leonard Nice try. I see you Paula. George Note. I'm just GONNA run right through it. That's where like there're times you can question is motor offensively like he's not being aggressive enough on sightings off the game especially late at because he can't shoot Jump shots is someone told him to try and be a lefty the like the lamps who setting last night the level of difficulty in the fact that he just reflexively goes to his right hand even attempt. Those should say everything you need to know every even backwards the no matter. What like contact. Oh he just scoop it up with all right like no one. Does that with their offense? No-one said however the troubles of news and I know you're not happy to see it. The TACO bell motionless brother goes to Their respite from modern society from the the Anti Plastic Straw coalition of America has lost. The war against paper.

Pinkett the best those things. I wasn't awful. Shit that using every establishment ever for decades. They've put by the lead paint in the walls. It was a. We were warm and cozy. It was good breathing breathing so a mother sister got three feet. Who Cares they? Warm warm feet. I don't like I know they don't use as best as and lead paint anymore so they claim however I like did they go around and like New England very old in New York like a lot of those apartments very old. Oh yeah who is regulating that they change this? Because I feel like it wasn't very heavily regulated. Now also you think a big best. Just sit back and it was like no. This is fine. Our Product is hurting people. But it's the right decision. Come home late like somebody do. Y- Sherwin Williams lead paint connoisseur. They're like no listen. What's what's it's just bad for the same way about bridges. I've never seen bridges at all. I don't know how many times I've seen as like. Oh get construction upfront. They're doing some bridge repair. Doing some bridge maintenance now wants to ship falls down there like yeah we should pray check on it. Yeah I I usually don't. I don't mind driving over bridges as long as it's not traffic. Stop and go on a bridge. I'm freaking out but yet no. I don't like thinking about how little they maintain bridges tunnels to tunnels mines is more like being on a bridge. I don't mind as much going under one just because like if you're going over the Golden Gate Bridge. They probably maintain that one with one hundred bridges. You go over daily. They touch their Bruce Fifty one. Those are the ones I worry about the off like Beverly Hills. Every bridge was built specifically in the nineteen thirties specifically because FDI Put a bunch of money in the economy by hiring people. Just build bridges. I feel like that was the last time we looked at took a look at any of them. Put Man those things stuff with best. Those painted with lead pain. I'm telling you though. Starting a learn anything about businesses is best as people are just like no absolutely.

Have you Have you been watching a new shows? Recently I just finished ozark was incredible. Incredible they've got a new season coming out soon. Back March twenty seven. Okay get some time. What to those yet to seasons? I think tha attend episodes of Boards Jason Bateman. That guys. Well that's funny because I was GonNa talk about Is also Jason Bateman joint? Outsiders outsiders yes it is talked about. Ozark Watch outside. I was like Damn I enjoy ozark saying that I won't have now it's what's it called on? Hbo? I'm only on episode four. 'cause it's creepy like it's not like American horror story or anything like that is just like a creepy tone to it That looks like it's I don't know it's it's it's it's based off even king novel. I believe so. Duh obviously creepy. Bateman Batman's in it and I. I know I've seen them direct a couple of these episodes last one. I just saw. He didn't direct but I wrecked of some of the ozarks. I won't watch this at night. I just won't I refuse sales the other way but it's not really like listen crime drama which I guess is accurate. I'd watch it as I just don't feel right watching during the day. I can only watch this at night. We'll kind of like it film dark. Isn't it yet and they? They filmed it at a lake. When they're two. Oh did they? Oh yeah boy. Summit Lake Lanier in some One other lakes not far from the Atlanta area but oh yeah watch during the day the Lanier goals will give me the they sure will. I've watched I watched like two of those episodes today. I think one yesterday maybe two yesterday some along those lines and at night I just watched. I'd never watched before but it's one like every award since of come on Davis I've read I give it a try veep. I've seen now. I don't know if this must be but I do keep hearing the good things about. Yeah I see is a really wasn't laden. May I always say like the ultimate praise? You can give a comedy laughing out loud when you're watching it by yourself Season One didn't get any The writing was good so I was like. Yeah I'll keep down with this Season Two was funnier so I'm about to beyond three but suffice. Oh good presidential like I can't think of a single like any type of presidential show or move like I'm good. Yeah Well Julia Louis drives all those like I'm sure they're good. I can't get into West Wing. I never tried. I know my father loved that and then being on the Internet everyone says they love it But I've never even given it a try. I'm sure it's like this is to series. Ozone Mush was on House house. A car house accounts has a car. Here here's that one. I watched like the first two seasons of I can't remember why got out. I was wasn't because there were spaces bag. Yeah now wasn't even that you didn't care you animal yeah It wasn't wasn't my concern. I was like the writing is battle gear This guy did Trying to think what other present shows Bet like scandal skate late. It's not about the presence there in the White House. One of those like this. I can see the appeal to this but I just can't get into political show or presidential. If veep it is there obviously. Mdc choose the vice president. But it's really more just like the time spent at least through the first two seasons like the time spent in between Being in front of a camera giving a bullshit speech. It's what the what's going on like. How stressed is as partisan lesser? What's causing her to say What what are these Incompetent people talking about when they go in to make their terrible plan. That does our says more situational funny but it is good and it's just like a the Combo of her and then I just like noticing. Everyone else was on the show like all these people are fucking funny like when that many funny people together like. I'm the one who's wrong. Let me look in. Who else is in it. There's a lot of people you'd recognize from other. Shit like Paul. Guy's name like their characters. You'd recognize some other stuff. Isleta will look at the veep. Cast amount log on a mouthwash. I know his face Anna Trump's key on her face Gary Tony You you're never in arrested development guy right now say Tony Hill Feels like it plays the same characters. I don't even know if this guy has ever acted before but it's funny character so I don't hate going back to the old fastball. I worked for Bayton Bay. Nobody is we are fucked. Look like Jason Bateman like. He's got this act down attack like if you want like existential dread yeah Ted operative or the President or whatever who's just like the angry Laogai you go Sam Jackson if I won the daily pickle. Agile stabbed barefoot stepped in Dog Shit while simultaneously shitting my pants face. That's Jason Bateman. It's and he's so good at that. It doesn't even get old. It's like here comes the shoulders shrink. He's GonNa look down the backup and look away and just walk away. Nailed it is a gay is a great exhale disappointed. Guy Like honest guy. You can't teach that if you create a much more yet. Much more actors would have it and he used his. I think the real reason I never tried arrested development. I don't WanNa see this guy in funny stuff. I want to seem like even I know like it was bad stuff that cause the humor I was like. I don't want it a Ozark that whole show like it's more about. It's kind of like how Seinfeld was about Seinfeld. Like he wasn't he's the main character but it certainly is route. Nobody but yeah and so it is mostly him just giving that look for three CS. There's nobody better. I only I hated multiple characters and the I hated one character at the wife and the versus. Oh bad I was like Arnold watching this and I did like when eighties on every single care does show okay on some that. I hated and really liked now. A some that are really light house. Up good writing. It sounds like they did a the opposite of breaking bad where you start. I know you watch that but you start you like everyone and then by the end. Eli with all these people suck well. It happened in. Yeah it's it's just a wild premise. But it's also it's drug talk and money laundering than I felt. It's one of those. Everybody sees the How quick could be much k? Everybody's like man. If I could really launder cash if I was a drug dealer so to that part of everybody or just me or just me when it when it had its first season. I heard a lot of breaking bad junior. Which made me stay away. 'cause like your own show which it sounds not Like I know the basic premise of that. The difference like for Brigham that it was like he was doing the stuff for his health right. Not any spoilers. You're the only person who hasn't seen it. Yeah he he was a high school high school middle school. High School Teacher So we didn't have money And he gets diagnosed with cancer and so he's like fuck my Like he's having a new kid so he's like. How's my family going to stay afloat when I die of cancer? Let me so math. Listen relatable content or sheriff is this one's more. He's like he's laundering. It's because he got caught up basically tale that he no he was. He's a financial adviser. You find out if they tell you the first Ivana. His partner was dirty. So He's like you've been like skimming all this cash is putting both of us at risk but only you getting the K. Twelve one of those he moves. He's gotTA figure out a long game and killing bad quite a predicament. I was on a real dill pickle and nobody shows more than a mark birth. Yeah I'll once I'm done with free with this stuff. I'll give Zaka Iran. Who killed not mix on Netflix? Which is very uplifting. Listen Truth sometimes gory. And sometimes you need it. It's eighty HD early more seven twelve in the morning that they're great series in a until Shaun king shows with that very random as one of those that like the things. He's saying he's not lying. But because it's Shaun King. Ask A CORY. Booker shows tunes like a moment right. The Messenger can certainly killed a message. Death by you can head nobody else say these same exact word gift. Shaun king the writing or whatever. The research credit cycle right all right. Tell them easy. I'm trying to see what we talk about. Not Giving a newer stand up comedians. A big chance acts where old set in our ways But speaking of like a lot of funny people kept saying. This guy was funny and at a certain point. I'm just being stubborn. I watched Olive John. Molina's stand ups over the last couple of months and not saying I spread them out like I watched them and then just kept watching them because they're very funny and he wasn't the he wasn't the stand up. I thought he was going to be based on just looking at him. I'll say when I used to like the old Pandora on shuffle. Patrice O'Neal station. Sometimes he would come up all remember. 'cause I got listened to it and randomly laugh. I'm like who is it and I go look John Mullany. Yep Our later like the next day something else. That was funny. John Mullany so awed did he put a new one or something. Which should I start with? So he's got. I believe three. Let me pull them up on net flags as got three and he did like a a kid show special on Netflix too. I haven't checked out but It was like his passion projects. I'm sure it's funny but I haven't watched it yet So new and towns the oldest of these And it's funny but you can definitely like. I watched that one last and I appreciated more. 'cause I watched it last because I had already seen what he grew into. And like you can see. He was eighty five percent of the way there. I'd say to what is now because this last two are pretty similar in the way. He's conducting himself on stage at show so towns the oldest one Comeback NOPE COMEBACK. Kid was second and I was really funny kid. Gorgeous came out in twenty eighteen so not particularly new New enough but that one that all three of them are funny. I said I'd probably watch them in either reverse order or two three one but yeah now. He's he's definitely funny. Not Check America's He. I just remember that name Specifically House I boy. This guy does not look good. I'll be damned if I wouldn't laughing at this guitar. Or the parts are hit the just the way he talks Is Funny unto itself like the way he sets up sentence structure and like the old timey word so us randomly like you can tell us like Simpson's and count and influenced which I've heard him say so. I'm not I'm just making that up but you can tell just like random words that he's like. I find this funny. I don't care if I get a huge laugh year. I know these words together a funny. Yeah that's what I like about. Hannibal was like this is final care if y'all laugh. I'm going to tell you what room Elaine from me. I think I was literally back to the same people that told me about him. You gotTA check out. Anthony Jesuit Jesuit which I always like white comedians. Cancel your out fair lesson fair if I'd watched one and it was like. Yeah I feel like those guys like this guy. I would be like now. Fuck that but no genucel knicks. Like I'm going to say the most shocking thing here and and people who live normal lives. I think this is crazy. Like a American Javale's Tamer does at the very least rig your base. I think he means it. Awful shoot. Glad he's saying for reaction but I really think you mean issue too. I'm I'm upset. Your vase back is in this place now where he he turned into shock. Usages is British. He'll say something like weird at the end of the sentence but the rest of his joke was like about like elephants like swimming like he was like I mean. He created the Office. His whole thing was he was British Seinfeld in the sense that he was just picking at random parts of daily life that other people were overlooking that he felt funny and now he's just like Jesus was gay and it's all right dude like that was a joke. I'm not offended. You're offended. Why can't you take the fact that Jesus was gay was anything? What are you talking about the way he did? The he opened hosting. Ab was hosting but it was one of these awards shows a few weeks ago last month that he did the opening monologue to and he was going on celebrities and that was funny like that made me laugh and he actually like had point and it wasn't just like I'm GonNa Shock Everyone here and say this shit like we used to be like I when he said that was his big shock. Laugh like then. Now he's like I gotTA. I gotTa do way more than that. Let's see. Did anybody having mentally handicapped children. Late smashes watermelons great an open leaning. Gerets US like Jerusalem Elaine. And he just pivoted and it's working for him obviously still get delightfully gagging big books. But yeah as just someone who enjoys comedy. I didn't care for his. It's turn that dive in that direction. Melania's not like that is not like either of those is a if it feels like a just a student of comedy in his element like. I can't imagine what else I would be doing. I'll check them out and he was like a writer for a long time before he blew up as for ESA right. Yeah and he. He was not a guy too. He had a sitcom before I'd seen him do. Stand up like it was you'd be watching like NFL. Game on Sunday on Fox and he would break in and do the thing stands there and spins around When they come back from commercial and Joe Bucks like this Tuesday at eight thirty gets all new mullany. That's show tanked eight seven central. Yeah that's mullany on Fox and then they'd just go ahead and cook broke his leg. He's just not thinking about that show at all. No no no no I play to say to him so I that didn't help him but I've ever else I know is like big comedies. On those guys truth there right so yeah about seven years too late. But I'm Laney's funny that's my take Jacek on because I thought also thought he might be like Like I think nick funny but I don't want to Negro Standa right. I read watch like big something either. Like worked on a greater role. But I don't think I WANNA watch sixty minutes straight Negro. They had their two man show on Broadway for a while. Malayan girl and that like won awards. I'm pretty sure and I know. They adapted it for net flicks for I think. Like a like the plane. Movie form or just recorded the plaque. I remember but I know that was like heralded. He's all big Malays on big mountain. Did you what do you watch now? I haven't watched it now. Okay yeah he's yeah he's one of the main voices boy that funny voyeurs. I've seen in my life if it's if it's characters are cartoon characters very well but there's some shoot they're like. I can't even imagine ten on another human being thought that nonetheless tilling a group so they can animate is that like. I'm a grown man and I'll watch it alone and I'm like should I be watching this gluten. Yea I'M GONNA NEED TO CHECK IT OUT. I don't know why haven't I remember when it came out? Originally it was like right after I quit smoking and someone who was like I'd seen promos for it and stuff but the first person who talked to me about it was like yeah. It's a perfect high show and I was like well. I don't smoke at the moment so nights. Good stuff not like the the hormone monster in monster loan goes to Jordan. Kills the ghosts of Duke. Ellington just shows up just randomly autism sex advice. Hey I appreciate it Ghost of do Gallinson. Everyone knows about me episode. It was but the the joke that had me in on big mouth going around middle school and they were going round panting everybody and they get to a kid in the wheelchair looking around. They didn't know what to do. So one kid stood him up another one pants them and they sit back down and the kids which I was like. Thank you for making me feel included on this bats attention to detail job writing that I can appreciate. That's that's that's very good. Yes I gotta I gotTa finish the third thing Susan. Three to what I watched one too didn't watch three. I was like I need some time and I got older is legitimate. Like for the most part. I don't really unless it's like too much nudity or whatever this is show is like no. I will not let my nephew watch under any circumcised student. My parents should let me watch. This is is praise can give. Oh hello was the name of their. Two men. Show is ideal onboard. They just did it for like a it was going for a while another both in New York for a while. I don't think they still do it. It's been on net flicks. It's it's an hour of forty on Netflix as bounded since two thousand seventeen guy. He engaged his pillow because he keeps fucking his pillow. I can't let it get away. Also that was very funny. It's pretty good. It's good stuff. It calls himself quite the run ads between the League and he had his own show that I know had more than one season. Probably you shouldn't hold these days. Good Fan pretty good. I saw Joe Rogan and Dave Chapelle have multiple dates. Where they're touring together which just feels unfair in terms of how many people they can get you talk about Netflix. The fuck off me twenty million. I don't step out for less than forty five where we packed Madison Square Garden. Six street shows we had a add a six or seven eight and nine to the tentacle talk about like if they just sat up there and just basically did Rogan's podcast on stage. I'd pay north of like two hundred fifty dollars to see that live. Rogan shouldn't go to was like ten years ago. This guy was like yelling. Mma what if? I told you he had the biggest I cast ever. I was I was trying to look up one of his episodes yesterday. And it left me to eight different episodes talking about from different podcast talking about who he endorsed for president. Okay like there are a whole podcast like I. I know that it made news on twitter. News like people. Blog didn't stuff but other like and there could have been more. I stopped looking. I was like that's not what I'm looking for and that's insane. Joe INS presidential Nominate like that's something like The the the Union back somewhat they know Rogin Bang like Joe Rogan Jarrow one of the great American success stories and in the sense that it was just like the ominous disparagingly. The eighth guy on newsradio shows powerhouse. You like the eighth guy on that. He was the janitor on newsradio which was like not a well-received like public that ninety. Sitcom that then he parlayed into fear factor which was a little a little something called for your fact which was all right Reality TV shows or a thing. What's The craziest thing we can think of? Who's the most random birds where we can get those two so he does that for several years and then hosted it on the parody on Chapelle show And then at some point and all this he went on stage and I think it was in vegas exposed cows Mencia for being a fraud. In the middle of one of Gallo's menzies sets killed Baghdad's that was the first time I think I was in on road because a lot of people were accused him Rogan. Rhoda here give me that MIC. Giving her you fucking act land on a missing anything. I know he's done obviously was doing standup to your diff- was early in on anime. Because he was doing like Jujitsu and kickboxing and shit like that Like fighting himself So then yeah he got on the ground floor of MMA that happened like before fear factor even but it wasn't a thing anyone else paying attention to but yet then the second that became the biggest sport in the fucking world. He was front and Center for that. And then just randomly a decade ago. When like only Adam? Corolla was doing podcasts and people in colleges that were like testing them out he was just like yeah. I'm going to do the chats and livestream them and just see what happens. And now when he says I endorse this man for president they become president by April. Nineteen again last year. You WanNa go semi podcast downloads. He was getting a month. I'll say twenty five twenty five listens. Wow Twenty five million one hundred ninety million a month this last April right. That's why is could be. You could tell me. Two hundred and fifty million like he endorsed candidates Bernie Sanders saw a surge of coverage. He just used a clip from the Rogan. Show right on the show. He went like correct. He was talking to A New York Times writer. I believe who was like you've interviewed a bunch of these candidates which is also crazy true. Like if you want and it makes sense like if you want lists at same thing with athletes and pardon my take like if you're ignoring these avenues as it's going to humanize you like no other medium will be he'll give you as long as you fucking want to talk about whatever you want the. He's got lower to be four hour. Podcast talk about pretty much. Nothing but just kick it. Let's do it Hale. Allama Tesla get the number right. I think they drop thirteen nine percent nine percent after he. If the Joint Rogan. Like that's crazy amounts of sway got while and even like it's against same apartment. Take us not that they get that many is that they get the right demographic. Yeah it's not one hundred one hundred ninety million of exactly who would want thirty eight billion dollars. Hit the joint one time. That's absurd rogin what I appreciate it out of him which a lot of people other are a lot of other his critics as detractors. Don't appreciate it. All is a hill. Have anyone on like web whether he agrees with. You're not he's like all right. Let's hear your side and I understand where that can be dangerous if he had like fucking four klansmen sitting there telling their story. Yeah I'd be like all right but LLP blonde he'll push back. That's the thing like if he had him on he was like listen. I think what you guys do is bullshit and I think tell me. I'm wrong a like if you WANNA step outside. I'll kick the shit out. He Yeah. Rogan verse Stack five and Matt binds. That's rough and rowdy. Let's get that on the on the Morn. I think it'd be the th they go into. They lead hype the fight in the bogue into the ring and Lincoln's and just beat everybody in the state or by all crowds ever those three. Just what? Everybody Rogan announces while he's doing it All devastating right for me. I got this guy and a headlock. He's gone nowhere. Ain't that right. I'm going nowhere yet. Rogan's and all time all time success story which I very much appreciate and like he his belt to the point where he can't even. I'm I'm sure you can't like no one's infallible or unbeatable. Like the all all of its him so like there's nothing like he can't like lose it by him the second if it's not his own company already he just go to this. Oh Yeah no. It is 'cause he's gotTa be here. He's because he started on use stream just doing it and it would be like three hundred people watching as he decided backing them in Cadillac them. on like Youtube and whatnot obviously was released on this podcast but it was always intended to be a stream where he could talk with people and have people interact and that obviously the interaction parts gone down. Because there's like you said one hundred ninety people many million people lodging But yet it crushes you to crushes If you go to apple by guess any day any day and you look at the top of the judge. You're going to see him that without question cooking as e wildly good shape these tattered up he's smokes weed like only eats meat. Yeah he'll go hot illgau do EDANO. He's people say like Jack-of-all-trades master of non. He's starting to master a lot of these traits. Esther several trades the Joe Rogan. Our we had. I've been thinking about that for a while because I've started listening to him again since moving home and having less human beings around more times with listen to things and it just like I was like this guy is the biggest media company because like we pride ourselves up we've become one of the biggest media companies especially our word when our goes out like people move on it Rogan's Rosenstone that Solo which is chasing his tail. It's Yeah I've just been thinking about this guy. He's turned himself into Barbara. Walters pulling out the network. He's done on himself but honestly like I don't know how old he is. But if that's the next lane he wants to tell you. Want to be like a serious interviewer now. Eight absolutely take on on television like not just pie. Do like sit down interview sixty minutes. If he wanted to go that route he could go. Honestly think it'd be a like I think it'd be a step back I mean it wouldn't be. Cbs It'd be for already Sarobi Broadcasting. It'd be Netflix or HBO for shared like he had Robert Downey junior on and he gets a lot of people. It's all right yeah. We we've got twenty minutes for you and that's like pulling teeth to get twenty minutes like the least amount of time people sit out as an hour. He's like we're not doing an hour. I'm not doing it. Yeah go fuck yourself. I can't remember who he was talking about. Someone was trying to gone. He was just like no. I don't WanNa fucking talk to you. I respected and he's got just scrolling dude just like Neil degrasse Tyson Elon Musk Bernie Sanders Tulsi Gabbard conor McGregor. Also you'll just get and then he'll go on to stretch words like five comedians that he's pals with four MMA fighters. Those still. Doing numbers doesn't matter. The guest is people are listen. Listen it's not about you you. Yeah so shout out you. Rogan Newton cells finest from Boston. He was born. He talked about a randomly. He dated growing up right outside of Boston but he was like born. I want to say it was Jersey or the hell of his New Jersey. They had he was born in Jersey but moved like very young. I want to say like six mates was born in Newark. Seven to eleven. The family lived in San Francisco as what it was eleven. They went to Gainesville. Florida Danny moved to upper falls Massachusetts. And he did all high school there. He recalled being terrified of being a loser as a child. Honest the motivation to Umass Boston. Shut your mouth. Boston dropped out instantly loser. Then he was like you know what I'm I'm GonNa go my Librarians Got Gary Morris. Way Than fucking anyone's then that's exactly what he do. Fifty two and the lane is that now. I don't see why can't run those optimize delete. He wants to stop. That's what I'm saying. That's the nick like when he gets older Alcon but absolute under the PODCAST. Because I do that for me. Nobody else but all right. If you're GONNA hire me to host the Oscars I'll make quick two million okay honestly. I don't see why he wouldn't get one of those. They'll never think of him. It would be a real outside the box pick. But I don't see why not something would have to be. One of those of Oscars had their lowest ratings in years. They're going to have to take a turn. Joe Rogan. Attendance goes up sixty eight percent on awesome. Look Forward to Alec for him just being like you know what fuck it. I'm president now no election. I'm president the Congress is like no. This is fine. He's got the popular vote by a lot. Who's going to veto that man? You seen as a spinning cross kit regularly like will show people choke holds all accidentally choked him out like whoops. That's how he won the presidential debate Bernie Sanders tapping for dear life boy. But Yeah All star weekend Rogan. Talk John Mullany. You got all right here. Just just another episode.

Thanks to us. That's huge. We absolutely love love love when you guys do that. So please, please, please please keep doing that.

So RAD power brakes is it consumer direct brand. Right. So you're already getting a premium electric bike without paying the huge markups caused by dealers third party retailers.

You know, I love businesses like this. They also have this four hundred dollars off per model for cyber Monday making it easier for you guys to get these awesome. Power bikes that can reach twenty miles per hour with zero peddling visit WWW dot read power, bikes dot com slash podcast.

It's awesome RAD power bikes dot com slash podcast that tell you learn more and don't forget to shop their cyber Monday sale on November twenty six to save big. All right Evan. Let's start with a couple of teams that really disappointed me last week. Week the cardinals and the chargers. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. They both disappointed. Yeah. Absolutely, man. That was bad. You're right. It was bad by both of them. Really? Especially the chargers though. Because the chargers have something to play for. And you know, losing that game. They were coming off their bye weren't they chargers. No, they'd beaten the radar before. Yes. Yes. So basically, they they were coming off. Yeah. I think this is a Melvin Gordon game. You know, I think the the chargers just control the rock, and your that's usually what teams do against the cardinals with that sad, man. The chargers run defense is problematic. And it's not getting any better. They did get back. You played thirty one snaps last week. But man, they lost Corey legit one week after losing Denzel Perryman what thing I did last week. 'cause I looked at the split stats within without Denzel Perryman on the field and going back to last year. And I mean, it's a big gap. It's like they they allow full yard per carry more with Denzel Perryman off the field like five point one yards per carry. That's a lot a lot. So that bodes well for David Johnson on the other side, but that actually would work against the chargers chances of controlling the game. Ultimately, I think that they do I think they bounce back in just a such a superior team too. Zona? But I think that Melvin Gordon gets role in Austin that cler has not really been a factor. He's had a bunch of big plays called back recently. But he has not been a factor in the box score. For a while since the chart. Since the charters kind of like decided to commit to Melvin Gordon as they're they're they're belco. Austin that color was used a lot more early in the season. But ever since that game in London that was the week seven game. And then that's when the charters by was. They just have not used very much Austin that cleared and he's not really a flex option anymore. Philip rivers has. Pass attempts have just been really really low. I mean their bottom three in the NFL and pass it temps. So that even last week. We saw them throw the ball. Lot more. It didn't necessarily go that. Well, Philip rivers did throw over four yards. But he threw a couple of picks and they wound up losing the game. That has not been the winning formula for them. The the winning formula has been for the chargers to control games with Melvin Gordon. I think that's what they're going to try to get back to Philip rivers. Low upside fringe fantasy starter against Amazon Arizona can rush the passer too. Mike Williams, Tyrone Williams, so. Tyrone Williams is clearly the number two here. He is out targeted Mike Williams since that by week twenty four to sixteen and he's run forty three more pass routes. So hey, you might get lucky with Mike Williams touchdown. But if you're deciding between the two tyrel is the guy Keenan island on fire again love to see that. He runs on the interior a little bit over half the time. It's fifty three forty seven and Patrick Peterson has covered the slot on lonely. Four snaps all season cardinals Buddha Baker as their slot corner. He's pretty good. But can definitely be beaten in coverage. Good matchup for Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Tyra Williams likelier to see Patrick Peterson in this game. In Tonio gates wakes up about that five catches eighty yards and a touchdown. He didn't need over forty pass attempts for Phil. From Philip rivers to get their his playing times participation were up a little bit. But it's still not a ton. So, you know, as a longtime in Tonio gates truth or I haven't been a lot of best balls. You know, I'm not so sure what to think about in Tonio gates this week lean toward not chasing the points. I think that the cardinal the charters are going to go back to not. Not throwing the ball whole lot in this game. Josh Rosen coming off a three touchdown game. But also a bunch of turnovers against the raiders. And I think that the chargers defense is the play here. Not Josh Rosen. In the receiver corollary fits matching up in the slot against the chargers. Solid match up. You know, not great. But but solid up the chargers. Give up a high completion rate in the slot. Doesn't kick is excellent as a football player, but you can get catches in the slot against the chargers. Christian Kirk on the outside going to deal with Casey Hayward. No, thanks, Ricky seals Jones, always tease. You know, he's gonna be out there a lot. He's going to air yards. And you know, he's probably not going to catch a whole lot of Wheaton. We can move onto the next one. Next one's interesting. It's the Miami Dolphins. It looks like tannehill will be back. Even though everybody's saying that he's not one hundred percent against the Indianapolis Colts who are absolutely rolling, but might be without their center. Ryan kelly. Yeah. I'm not out to Optimus about Ryan Kelly right now, and they would move onto Evan beim. Evan beim out of Mizzou old third round pick of the cardinals has bounced around. I think they're going to be okay against Miami. Miami on the interior has not been not been real good. They cut Jordan Phillips. They moved on from Dhamma consumer. Of course, they they had to place. Vincent Taylor on injured. Reserve. So I think I think they're going to be okay in this particular game. And hopefully Ryan Kelly will be misses a game. It doesn't sound like a particularly serious injury. So and he's been an excellent pass blocking center. I mean, everybody's been passed blocking well on the colts. You know when you when your quarterback is going to and twenty straight dropbox without taking a sack you were getting the job done and the dolphins. Don't have a pass rush at all. So me Cameron wake will pop up every now, and again, Robert Quyen popped up like twice, but you know, their past rush metrics are real real bad. Andrew luck should have a real nice Quique squeaky clean pocket. We talked about how last week was a blow up week for T Y Elton. This one is to match them up with avian Howard. Please xavien Howard ran four five eight coming out of Baylor. Okay. T y Hilton in four three four please match him up t y Hilton is gonna tear the lid off this. We just like he always does on the fast track at Lucas oil stadium. I think that Andrew luck t y Hilton stack, you know, it's gonna be deserves to be really popular this week. And it it absolutely should be. I'm playing it in daily fantasy Eric LeBron's zero targets, you know, guess what guys routes run and snaps do matter because we knew that his floor was going to be low as long he's runs thirteen routes in three straight Nieves. Thirteen routes. You know, so he's going to have a game where he just gets ignored. He ends up running the routes and the ball doesn't go to me goes to Jack Doyle, or whatever they sorta Chester Rogers on those plays or MO alley talks or whatever. Eric Iran is a touchdown dependent guy and other dolphins have been awful against tight ends. You can really beat them up with tight ends Jack Doyle's, I still think is the best play among the colts tight ends. But Eric, Yvonne is a guy that you can you can look at this week. I know guys coming off the goose eggs are never never comfortable. But I think they're more likely to go back to him. Then not your your biggest concern is that they jacked Lewis played five games this season. Eric Brown has five targets are fewer in all of them. So you kind of you got to know what you're getting into with Eric Ibran? And then receivers Ryan grant Dontrelle Inman Zach PASCAL. Chester rogers. There's a bunch of them the the best one the best option out of all them is Dontrelle Inman. He did catch a touchdown last week in the second half. Second set seven yard score. He is like a wide receiver four in a high scoring offense. But he's like rotating with Ryan grant, basically and in the involved other guys to Marla MAC, I think roles here. Dolphins defense in terms of run defense shot last time we saw that saw them play Aaron Jones was just running all over them. And I think that we can expect similar things here from Marlin MAC. Jordan Wilkins has played well though, and that's something to keep an eye on. He ripped a big big run in week ten and then last week four carries for thirty yards and a touchdown. And if you just go back and look at his production over the last five sixty s Jordan Wilkins has been adding something to their running game wouldn't surprise me. If they start to give him a little bit more work going forward on the other side, you mentioned Tanny hills back Jiechi grant out for the season. We don't know on. Devante parker. Frank gore. Kenyan Drake situations is one of the most frustrating situations and fantasy. I just I don't have a whole lot say about the dolphins. We can move onto the next one Steelers Broncos. In Denver Broncos cut their running game going last week. I mentioned earlier how the chargers run defense is kind of in bad shape. Broncos. They're kept rolling last week despite having lost run on Leary, Matt parodies and Mexico who's filling in for Ronald Leary. But that gives you a level of confidence in Philip Lindsay. It's just a three man backfield with devante Booker, Royce. Freeman Philip Lindsay, but Lindsay is the lead guy and that puts him on the, you know, the mix him a decent Rb to slash flex plays. Got that big run ability. I mean, they despite losing those interior linemen like their big plays last week came on up the middle runs. That's how Philip grins Lindsay scored his long. Touchdown Steelers have been good in run defense for sure. But. Philip Lindsay's got that big playability, and they can use them in the passing game too. Case keenum. Low end to quarterback league play. Cortlandt Sutton on outside likeliest to draw. Joe Hayden's coverage. You know, if we're looking at a guy to play in Denver's passing game this week. It is definitely a manual Sanders. Manual Sanders going to be a fifty percent inside fifty percent outside receiver day, Sean Hamilton, by the way, aggravated a knee injury. Don't if he's gonna play. I would guess not that would put Tim Patrick back in the lineup as third receiver. Emmanuel sanders. Oh, yeah. This is a revenge game for him went back and looked and see if if he is played the Steelers at all any has been for a while it was with Peyton Manning. So, you know, major asterisk there. But he had ten catches for one hundred eighty one yards and a touchdown and only other time facing off with his former team. For the Steelers. You know, Ben bounce back last week from just the worst frigging first-half that you have ever seen. You wound up being awesome and fantasy against Jacksonville. This is a later game the bad splits for Big Ben which really haven't affected him this season too badly. But. The bad splits for him are one PM eastern time road games. This is a later game. So I think at Ben is fine as a play Broncos. Aren't that scary from a defensive standpoint, especially on the outside outside receive outside cornerback? They just cut pacman Jones who'd been playing a ton of snaps for them. Tremaine Brock is easily beatable as is Bradley Roby. Antonio Brown should definitely get loose in this game. Juju in the slot. Gonna get a lot of Chris Harris, probably. That's not the best matchup. But does have a major size advantage on Chris Harris. With that said, I think it increases the risk a little bit of ju ju. They can move him outside if they want to go and play Switzer in the slot more. So that you know, I think ultimately juju you're using him as a wide receiver to and season long pretty much every week. Titan. Vance McDonald stays hot, you know, he's he's one of the most underrated tight ends in league at this point. But both I think in real life in fantasy Broncos are not good at covering tight ends heaven been since you know, Vance Joseph became the coach even before that really. Whatever it is. They're they they have been bad against tight ends for a long time. And Vance McDonald one of the best run after catch. Tight ends in the NFL last week showed his athleticism just out jumped tell them Smith one of the most athletic linebackers in the league for a touchdown. James Connor should get it rolling again to you know, when they when they fall behind big that's not ever bode well for running back, and that's what happened for James Connor last week. I think he gets it back going against Denver. Denver has not been good against the run since early in the season. And that takes care of that game. The next game is Sunday night football. It's the Packers four five and one the Vikings five four and won both teams. Definitely disappointing to this point in the season. Yup. I think yeah. Yeah. They they really are. I think the Packers especially are disappointing. And this is not this is not good at Minnesota. When back and looks at the splits for Aaron Rodgers against Mike Zimmer not good not good at all. Aaron Rodgers risky Frene JR. Quarterback one. Davante Adams facing off with Xavier Rhodes, that's tough match-up Davante Adams you can win. But definitely enhances his risk. And then. Mark has vowed Scanlon this game is kind of tough too because we don't know about Randall Cobb, and we don't know about Jimmy Graham. You would be a great match for Jimmy Graham, if we knew he was gonna play, but we may not know if he's gonna play until like right before the gate, but the Vikings have been bad against tight ends this year Harrison Smith, I can never really get a good read on him. You know, sometimes I think he's great and other times, I'm not I'm not so sure. And then they've been missing Andrus and Deo there other safety. So. Things to keep in mind. As it pertains to the Packers tight end situation. If. Jimmy Graham does not play. We're looking at Robert Tanya n- and Lance kendricks Marseille's Lewis now, I know that Robert Tanya in scored a touchdown last week in projects admitted after the game that he thought he was throwing the ball to Jimmy Graham that Robert Tanya just kind of looked like Jimmy Graham, but Robert Robert Tanya n- scores the touchdown. And but that doesn't mean that you know, now he's a fantasy play. I mean. It's probably going to be a rotation time. Tanya did show some stuff in some things in in training camp. I remember like the beat writers talking you mop. And I was like I'll show plame in preseason DFS. And then I did and he didn't do anything. But he he's gonna probably just work in a rotation with the other two dues. So not real excited about the tight end situation. If we don't get Jimmy Graham, and it's again, it's a Sunday night game. So we're not gonna know is availability in all likelihood onto late on Sunday, which puts you in a bind from fantasy standpoint. Again, don't know about Cobb you'd away Mark has vowed a Scanlon is going to be the number two. He was pretty absent in the last week's game. There were a bunch of problems that occurred for the Packers that came out trying to run it. Then they didn't have the ball for long stretches. I mean, they they ran forty nine offensive plays, including penalties. That's you. You're you don't have the ball. When when you're running fewer than fifty plays a game on offense market has vowed has Scanlon played forty eight of the forty nine plays. But you know, the Enron was forcing it to devante atoms. I think that I like Marcus vowed skittling better at outside receiver at this point and slot receiver. You know, I don't know. He's still a young player. But I think that Randall Cobb coming back might actually help them by pushing to the outside, but he's a a boom bust wide receiver three. I think is the best way to put it. At this point Vikings. I think are in a great great spot. The the Packers are given up almost thirty points per game. If you just remove their two games against the bills and the dolphins in a specially on the road. They've been hemorrhaging points. The lowest the lowest that they've given up twenty seven through five road games. So that I think all that bodes well for the Vikings. Vikings can absolutely get on track this game when they played in week two was twenty nine or twenty nine round up as a tie. Kirk cousins went when berserk four touchdowns over four hundred yards. Digs went off feeling went off. You know? Rudolph never does anything. You which is frustrating. He's just a touchdown her bus guy. But cousins, you know feeling. And digs all awesome place. It is this game will be played indoors. You don't have to worry about whether you know, the totals pretty nice. So I think it's a good spot for the Vikings passing game to really get back on track really uneven performance at Soldier Field. Not that not that. That was surprising. I mean, we totally painted that. And they you know, they kinda did well to just lose by five, but I think that they get back cranking here, and then lots of questions, I always get about dalvin cook. Last week. I know that the fantasy bottom line was just about as bad as it gets, you know, ten total yards. But I liked the usage. I mean. Fifteen tushes to only four for latavius Murray. Dalvin cook played e eight percent of the snaps. Never expected him to have a big game against Chicago. And I think that he absolutely can have a big game against the Packers who have been bad against the run in her going to be without Mike Daniels can't stress this enough. How big of a loss this is for Green Bay, especially after they already lost Muhammad Wilkerson? I mean, they are they're they're they're in position to get run. All over so dalvin cook fire him up with confidence, you know, play him in daily fantasy if you can still do trades. You know, your trade deadline hasn't passed get him. I think this is a great opportunity to buy on dalvin cook. And that takes care of the Sunday night or. All right. The last game. It's the titans who totally laid eggs and Mario does banged up in Indy against the Texans. Who just keep finding ways to win. Even if they're not all that impressive doing it. Yeah. You know, the titans that was very disappointing performance last week against Indianapolis. We don't know if mariota's gonna play. And this is like might be related to his previous injury. I don't know. I gotta read Dr Chow more about the Marcus mariota injury. But man, I mean, you know, they are listening as an elbow. I I don't know. I I don't have anything. Great to say really about the titans. The Texans have been great in run defense all season long. That's notable facing Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry. Blaine gabbert is you know, she just takes the wind out of every all the passing game sales. If he ends up playing the matchup looks great on paper for Corey Davis. Y- you need mariota in there. You need them healthy and. Johnny smith. I mean again, you need mariota, Johnny. Smith has a great match up to end. We saw his targets. Finally, spike last week really was a promising game. But can't do this plane Gobber stuff cannot do it with with Wayne, Guibert toxins. I think that they are a great defense play. If we get Gobber really if we get married to to. I mean, you can bet against his health. You know, he's had really bad games where he's trying to play at less than one hundred percent. I just wish we could get a season and Marcus mariota where he would be healthy for the entire season. We could just see what he could do. And because you know, just e he's he's had a disappointing promising flash filled career. Lamar Miller retook the reins at running back last week ton a ton of work. That is is good matchup is not that good against the titans. But you wanna see that volume in a season long league? And he's a decent Rb to play. Because of it a Dory. Jackson had been balling out really really shutdown. Josh gorge in that week ten game. And then got rent circles around by t y Hilton last week, and it wasn't just you know, what you see in the box score because t y Hilton also drew a thirty five yard defensive pass interference flag against the Dory. Dory could not cover TY help this week and have to deal with the Andre Hopkins much different style of receiver. But you know, now also probably even a worse matchup for debris Jackson, who's like a smaller speed guy deandre Hopkins big physical route technician, I think that he can have a big game. No matter who's on him really wouldn't make sense for the the titans to just let Logan Ryan chase him. That's what the patriots used to do when they would play the under Hopkins had Logan Ryan they'd use Logan Ryan to shadow de'andre. Hopkins didn't always work out. But I think that would be the best option for the titans to the best route for titans to take in this game to Maria's Thomas zero catches last week. Don't even even Dickey saw target that. And you know, the first of all you have to understand that the Texans. Their pass attempts are way down k they are trying to play like ball control offense. They know that their offensive line is terrible. They know that that's not necessarily a good. They don't want to get their quarterback, Kurt, you know. Hey, they're seven and three right now, they when they need to keep their quarterback healthy they're playing making quarterback cannot have this do dropping back forty times a game. And so so the pass at times are not there in volume the under half Ken's is always going to get a big chunk of them. And then you get KiKi QT coming back, and he grabs what nine last week that didn't leave anything for Marius. I I would be you know, look the Texans are probably gonna script some stuff early in this game for two Marius. But when push comes to shove like deandre Hopkins is the one here on a low volume passing team. And that's that's not gonna that's gonna be bad news for the compliment complementary pass catchers, even KiKi t even though yet a solid game with five for seventy seven last week, not trustworthy against Tennessee. I do think that you're planning to Shawn Watson with relative confidence every week in or you're pretty much every week. He's been up and down to be sure. But in that that that rushing upside is always there with him. You're the big playability. So I think that he's a low end.

Oh, no, ZipRecruiter dot com. Os six. Oh, no. Week ten is here. Welcome into the fantasy focus football podcast. We call this the two man we've which is kind of ironic because I'm not sure if you can weave with two people, but you get what I'm saying. My name is field Yates, he is Mike life acre for being here this morning. Michael good to be here. I got my mouse that's about I got missing doesn't work for my like my phone here. We've got some housekeeping to take care of the beginning of this because as you can imagine or as you have seen if you're watching on Twitter and fake you to those that are Matthew was not here today. He's got some personal stuff. He is tending to he will be on the fantasy show today, of course, vailable on ESPN. Plus, I will be joining him. So I know that he is going to be there not only is Matthew on here today. But Mike's computer, which is like the control panel of ESPN fantasy promptly on the short term version of I r though which is good news. I don't know it might be off for the season. We're looking for placement. So we're right now our IT sections down looking at you know, looking at some tape of the practice squad. We're confer a new. New computer to bring in berry. Now, I'm left with is this mouse in my phone's trying to try to get through here. I think I have enough up in the up in the old brain doing a writing the fantasy thirty two yesterday got some information there. So I think we'll be okay. If we I think we could do mice one of the smartest people you come across any point of your life. So I know that you'll do a great job here. Mike figuring it out without the computer. But just passing that along case you see Mike other staring down mobile own like this daring into my phone. Yeah. I feel make it. It's weird. It's it's nineteen nineteen ninety here. Any my? Yeah. My computer, and you might say, I'm glad you're actually let's get this. News from the national. The art a Tuesday, which means of course, we have a Monday night game to recap and Mike. The Cowboys got stopped last night. The star got stopped by Kevin buyer. The titan safety and the Cowboys sort of flat line the second half there yesterday. I figured on the Tennessee side pretty impressive performance all the way round coming off of their pie that weird fifteen daybreak either by week and you play on Monday night football for both of these teams actually button. It was the Dion Lewis show last night. Especially after about the first quarter of that game. Have we finally seen separation? That is going to stay this way for the rest of the season that Tennessee back because it starts to feel that way right now, I think so we do every Saturday morning. We put out a column, right? Where I I ask a fantasy question all thirty two over NFL nation reporters, and they do a great job giving US Super valuable information. Definitely check that out on ESPN plus about I think it was right after their last game two weeks ago. I Toronto avenue Puerto covers a team. I said is Louis now the guys you're going to be the guy going forward after he had that good game in. London. And he said, yes, I mean, he said he is clearly become the one it's not really a two-man backfield anymore. And we've seen that we saw that in this game fifty nine snaps. Played by Louis compared to fourteen for Derrick. Henry Louis was on the field for eighty four percent of their offensive snaps. Feel these out snap Henry and all but one game this season any is out carried him out carried him in back to back him. So he's the leading ball-carrier. And obviously, we know there's massive separation in terms of targets or no question. Lewis has worked his way right back into the Rb to mix and would would shock. You finished top ten the rest of the way with this workload. It would not. Actually, we saw this last year with him in new went after Rex Burkhead got heard the thing about Derrick Henry is he's limited as a player. Right. Not much in the passing game. I think is a runner Mike not as much running versatility. I think people want to make him out to be like, he's not a God's gonna push things to the perimeter. He's really gotta be between the guard and the guard, not even necessarily tackle the tackle. In a lot of cases for Derrick Henry like this is ski span multiple coaching staff. Now. For the three separate head coaches in Tennessee, and nobody has been able to quote, unquote, unlocked Derrick Henry, maybe it's because there is nothing to unlock there. Yeah. I'm with you. I think that and I was thinking about this last night. He seems like best case scenario now is like era blunt career, right? He could play early thirties. Yep. You can get H at twelve carries a game. Get some goal line work. Just be good after contact bring that element like blunted to so many teams according to England and Philadelphia lashed or maybe score a bunch of touchdowns maybe can have some double digit touchdown seasons. But yeah, it doesn't look like her. Yeah. Exactly. It looks like he's never going to have much of a role as a pass catcher either. So that might be best case scenario now for him. I'm glad you mentioned that on Dion Lewis. You know every week. We tried to get our rankings up by midday on Tuesday. If not by the end of this podcast and Dion Lewis was a player that when I did my rankings before the game on the night. It had him. I want to say like twenty one twenty two perhaps hedging on the possibility that he might not see as much work as he did before the by this morning. He has since been slit up to running back fifteen for week ten against the patriots. Really involved in the passing game thirty three catches this year compared to just thirty two all of last season. And while New England there was always the threat of James whites. Or I mean even last year, I guess not as much from Rex Burkhead down the stretch because of his injury. But there were other pieces in that backfield. Gillislee we're still on the roster, for example that eurozone at nervous about deal. Louis regressing back down to earth. It seemed it's going to stay that way. Going forward in Tennessee. He will be the guy for the titans accord. Avis had a decent night last night. Six for fifty six my kind of locked the end a flex play the top titans titans pass catcher, but not as much values. I think we had hoped for going into the year massive Tari chair is third double digit target game of the season came last night ten targets. He looks fine out there. I mean, it doesn't look like a dominant presence. That's what you want when you take a guy fifth overall. But I think I think there's still hope there. You know, he's entering his second year. He was a part timer last year. He's there number one this year, but he's had a terrible schedule. I mean the first half he takes on a stud number one shadow quarter every single week. We saw that obviously a tough match-up against Dallas Byron Jones, of course, very good on the perimeter. And then he gets the phone Gilmore this week shadow. Covers it just never ends. So, but I think it will end. Actually, I say never ends the second half of the season. It is much lighter. I do I do still think there's hope for Corey Davis. Yeah. Another Jalen Ramsey matchup. Eventually, hopefully, you can get like a handful of games of Corey Davis catapulting into a top twenty five wide receiver. It's going to mention the giant Smith. Did catch a touchdown last night? People like I will do anything for a tight end I would too. But with no more than three targets in a game this season. It's hard for me to look John who Smith is an option you feel good about other than if you are desperate. Maybe a sixteen team league where you roster someone like rob gronkowski. Which is me. Just basically speaking through my frustrations is that was the case for me this past weekend. Yes. I I had a situation where I got ahead of the gronk thing assuming you wouldn't play in started. Jeff Hier so homerun on that one for sure another one another one that was a little shallower. I went at Dixon, but you know there. And that didn't work out. Obviously people went John who Smith right because it was a late game. So you go into Sunday night. Good option you've plugs Smith in there. So at least at least, you know, he gained some fans here for a couple of weeks for the Cowboys. The story of the night last night was a Mark Cooper. And what would he do in his debut, Mike, and I actually thought that last night was sort of the perfect debuted manage expectations going forward? Here's what I mean if Amari Cooper had had ten catches hundred and forty yards and a touchdown last night. There would have been a massive swath of people saying the beast is unleashed again baby wide receiver top ten wide receiver for the rest of the season raiders are morons Cowboys were brilliant. But I would have had a hard time buying in the market, but could be a top ten wide receiver for the rest of the season. But if he had gone three for seventeen people have been like cowboy sort of the first round pick for a guy kid him catch last night. Five fifty eight one touchdown on a target on eight targets hadn't on the mental there. Yeah. I thought it was appropriate. Right. Like, I think Amari Cooper is like a top. Twenty-five wide receiver the rest of the way, he gave you probably better than top twenty five wide receiver production last night. But I thought the the usage the workload. And the the quarterback involved was a pretty appropriate number from our Cooper last night. Yeah. And we talk about the gunslingers a quarterback sometimes and how you know Ryan Fitzpatrick might not be a great an above average NFL quarterback. But we love him at fantasy because it Brian Hoyer being another guy guys that'll Chuck it downfield to their their top assets. And that's great news for fantasy football, obviously. Well, Dak Prescott throwing the ball into the end zone. And a double coverage was a horrible decision. But going forward, you're like, that's great. You know, just force. It force to Amari Cooper. If you're invested in Amari Cooper. That's what you wanna see. So I'm with you. I feel better about him going forward. It is still a very run heavy offense. It's an offense that doesn't score ten points though. Again, they play Tennessee who I don't think people realize this. They are best in the NFL in terms of touchdowns allowed right now they were tied with Allison going into defense number one defense. So it was tough match-up for sure obviously, the patriots play them this week. So. Oh, that's a interesting discussion with Tom Brady. But nonetheless, I am with you. He played fifty snaps easily number one in the team. Michael gaba. Forty-seven Kobe's lead forty four. He was the number one. So I'm with you. I feel good about him as a fringe wide receiver to going forward. Zeke was frustrating last night. In terms of usage in the second half. Just four of his twenty one touches came in the second half. But he's still finished with fifteen point two fantasy points. Mike Pence and a hard time being frustrated with Zeke from a fantasy standpoint this morning, but I know that some are hoping for a monster game. I mean, you're not seeing the ceiling you hope to get from Zeke. Right. And so far this season. I I know we're gonna talk about him a little bit more later. But the good news is he it's again, it's still a run heavy offense. He still the feature. I gained a ton of enter throwing it to him a ton. So I think it'll be okay. But he doesn't he's not up there with the stars like even hunt. He's not even at that level, or you know, obviously girly Barkley. He's a step below a tier below. But again if you drafted him in the middle of the first round year relatively happy's delivering weird week for rankings. We'll get into this throughout the week. Week on the show in terms of I felt like there was a fairly shallow number of like wide receiver matchups that I loved this week and even shallower number of running back matchups than I loved in a larger I guess for lack of better term middle class of rankings. This week Zeke Elliott was running the periphery because he's a great player and he plays all the time. But the eagles are no joke defensively, and we expect that to be a game that probably won't feature as many points with two good defenses involved, but could feature a lot of grinding it out type of drives Cowboys mentioned play Philadelphia next Sunday night. So plenty of Dallas on prime time TV as is always the case. Now, let me tell you something about flowers Mike because every year the holidays, which are coming around the corner reminders that our friends our loved ones being everything so on their birthdays and anniversaries go above and beyond with a beautiful bouquet of autumn roses from one eight hundred flowers dot com.

You do. Yeah. Case you wanna borrow it. All right. Let's get to some news. And the reason why we messed up and say the code Adams because we were thinking about Adam Schefter. He's always on her mind because he is the preeminent reporter in sports in the world. If you ask me and AJ green has some good news bad news to him right now. Here's the good news. He looks to avoid surgery the bad news. He looks like he's going to miss two games. At least this with the Bengals coming off of their. Bye. So let's begin with with the fallout from AJ green. And I think the short answer, Mike is this a no, it seems crazy. But like we are this close to the end of the season already. There are five weeks four weeks left in the fantasy. In the fantasy regular she's had to do some that there to see that one. That was pretty quick. First your brain has never really stopped. Like that before. I think it was the first time I've ever seen four weeks. Dang it four weeks left in the fantasy regular season. You're not dropping AJ green Arno. Okay. No way. Hopefully, people back case they were thinking about. Yeah. No question. Hopefully, you have an I R spot. If not just keep him on your bench. I'm sure you have more than one or two spots. Right. Hold tight through by weeks. Essential guy that can help you win a championship. And that's your goal here. And I third place. He can win you championship. So hold tight there. I asked for implications around him. I mean, a couple of things we'll get into Tyler Boyd here in a second obviously benefits slightly not not too massive extent. But you know, if you're looking at waivers as we take a shot on John Ross, just you know, I know he's been a bus so far. But you know, he yet underwhelming. He barely played as a rookie this season. He's played a little bit has flashed at times at least get him on your bench. Because if you know if they decide to throw it to him seven eight times that's going to be a starting caliber fantasy wide receiver deep leaks. Alex. It's been a reliable player for them so extension to this this summer, fourteen sixteen team leaks because be some value. Maybe a little uptick. CJ Zoema if you need a tight end and Jubran art can be back as well. So they could throw to the running backs a little bit more that you'd like throwing Nixon and Bernard could play a bigger role as well. But let's get back to tell her and we're talking about Tyler Boyd for week ten specific little bit later on in the show. But Mike, I think a lot of people just sort of using common. Logic would say AJ green is out Tyler boy top ten wide receiver the rest of the season or at least until AJ green returns. You're not quite as sold. Yeah. I mean, I like Boyd a lot. He's been terrific this season. I wrote about him in the regression regression alert fantasy thirty two last week because he's a little over his head in the touchdown department. Five touchdowns on the two point one zero OCD which again is like your expect a number based on your usage. So though he's over his head in the touchdown department is usage has been fine. He's twenty I know f- again, irrespective fantasy point total. So that means the volume he's been getting even with green. There is enough to give you fringe top twenty numbers at wide receiver. I mean, consider so far this snap counts. He's only he's actually to ahead of AJ green on the season and in terms of pass routes. He's thirteen ahead. Only eleven behind in target. So he's already been giving you wide receiver to numbers with green out. Maybe a slight uptick in targets. But again, he's already at twenty three percent. Can we really expect a ton more? I don't think so especially for a guy that's working primarily in the slot. So I think he's almost maxed out, but this is enough to keep them in the top fifteen I guess on a week to week basis as long as greens out good opportunity for the the Bengals are the like they are the ultimate in terms of draft develop an invest in their young guys in a really good opportunity right now for the John Ross's the Alex Berenson's brought the ATI Kohl's perhaps Josh Mitnick. We'll see, you know, obviously, her board as well. But a great opportunity for some guys step up because this is make or break right now. They they have a shot at the playoffs. They're very much in the thick of it, not easy. When you put the saints with the first game without AJ green. But a great opportunity guys area. Josh malone. Auden get lots of guys. They've got a lot of guys that are ready to potentially step up. I think I just I just butchered two separate Bengals names at their Audie Cole. Josh Miller Johnson Johnson. You got mixing them up. It's era somebody Bengals wide receivers so many mistakes sip tongues. If you will all right quick break. We're come right back. Lot of waiver wire citizens us as boy Gavin loved playing football. He lived in briefed wanted to go through when he'd spent hours upon hours. Just practicing his touchdown dances at one day. Well, getting fitted for by full goals, he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or catching nor even kicking. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how could save money on car insurance. So he switched and save. Then he did kind of a touchdown. At least he was still good that. All right, guys. And now it is time for a nother distant of ZipRecruiter smartest of the week. Hey, this is Kevin ZipRecruiter. Smartest fan of the week. And I just wanted to thank Matthew berry. I media. Okay. Fantasy advice now back to the show. Simple into the point excuse. I'm gonna say, you're welcome. On behalf of Matthew for that mediocre. Fantasy advice waiver wire com is live on ESPN dot com. We got a busy week here. But let's begin. I will just quickly. I'll go off script here mentioned three quarterback streamers for week. Ten Alex Smith's could be the most apparent choice. They play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers certainly loved the matchup there. Although they've been so volume solo volume until this past week terms of pass it there's a throwing the football down there in Washington. I have some reservations they're Baker Mayfield his last great matchup because he does play the falcons before the ba- the Browns go onto a buy in the schedule gets a little bit more difficult. And then there's going to be somebody's gonna do it. People are going to play Nick bones. Like Monday night. I'm not doing it. Yeah. I can't. I think we may have talked about this briefly before. But I I'm a little hesitant. I feel like that was a large product of a again to take away anything from moments. I didn't want to mention this like I didn't want to mention it tweet it because I would have been crazy. I would have got like I would've lost half of my following just to say anything negative about Mullins. But man, the raiders didn't show up for that game on defense. I know seven on seven he got away with some throws too. I mean think about that the throat George kettle that went through two guys and somehow kiddle Kadett ran like sixty he got away with some things. And listen, I hope he pans out. I hope he's a superstar in the league. Just the story the background on him look into that. If you haven't already just how hard is worked and what he does after practice. I hope he pans out. But I got to see it. I got to see it against a better defense. Giants aren't like they're not. But at least are there. Yes. Exactly. So let's get to the tight end waiver wire ads of the week as we always do we begin with the tight ends in quarterbacks in Jack Doyle for the colts still available in about sixty percent of leagues. Mike. I think big reason why is there on a by this past week? Yeah. I think you're you're probably right. If people not too aggressive, especially with sixteens out, right? You need to fill those spots with guys you can start. If you're if you're guys obviously for starters are out but going forward, I mean, I think oil is a tight end one perhaps a reliable tight and when Eric Brown now more of a touchdown dependent tight end to. I mean, just look at the usage in the last game. Doyle came back. Ebro was only on the field for fourteen plays and only ran ten pass routes at three targets in the game. Yes, he scored a touchdown. But man you start him. He isn't score you might get two catches for fifteen yards. And that's it. I mean, he's gonna burn you. So that makes me really nervous. You love with the colts offense is doing obviously. But you know, they play Jacksonville this week. You know, that's a tough match-up. So you might there might not be enough to go around in this passing. So you Brown. I don't wanna start him but dole again, he's just he's at he's the safety. You know, he's he's the guy that luck loves to go too often. And we've seen that for several seasons out. So I think he'll be he'll be fine. This spans across multiple coordinators and offense of systems, but it's worth noting. Andrew lock has forty four point four percent of his touchdown passes thrown to a tight ends at the beginning of two thousand sixteen. That's a large enough sample size either. The players are really good or they quarterback pension for throwing it that way. And like you just mentioned the Jacksonville matchup this week your projections forecast eleven point four points per Jack Doyle, eight point eight for Eric Ibran that factory and potential touchdown there for Iran, certainly. I mean, no. But there's nobody eats touchdown. Right. There's no receivers are tight end. You're gonna see that a project it for like one point zero touchdowns. It's all probabilities built in there. So it's really a part of a touchdown. We know he gets the ball near the goal line. So he is as good of odds at some of the top players in the league to finance own. But with the volume going it may. Makes me really nervous. You just I'm always going to lean towards heavy volume. And if you're not getting it I'm going to be scared off. Yeah. It's been a the Jacksonville Jaguars forever towards they've been very good. I mean, I tend to not highlight too many tight end stats because I think it's it takes just one game to to kind of throw things askew, but the Jaguar to everything well defensively, I know doesn't feel that way right now, but they're defending the pass to do everything. Well, and just one tight end which was Travis Kelsey has gone over thirty five or saving yards. So far this season deeper leagues at I mean, Chris Herndon for the New York Jets, Mike. I'm sure you have some very limiting factors here. I'll just note that over the past four games. He's got through the touchdown to four more catches. So he at least has a pulse in this offense. Yeah. A couple of things. I mean, you're seeing as targets go a little bit. But he was on the field for sixty four percent of the snaps against Miami. That may seem like it's trending up. But it's really not he was on. I think like two-thirds in week two, and like it's been up and down in terms of his used it. So could be thirty percent this week for all we know three touchdowns but only three targets while inside the fifteen yard line and one only one of those was an end zone target. You also have this jets offense. That's twenty. Six plays twenty fifth and touchdowns. Super heavy. I listen dynasty. I like her too tight end leaks. Sherry should be on rosters. But he's not close to the top twelve right now. Just throw him into that. Like, you know, you're going to grab a name out of a hat and replace your starting tight end this week, whether you know, whether it's gronk who doesn't play or whether it's maybe you're filling in for. Yes off that he's been great so far this season. But amongst the available tight ends who have that are on the waiver wire just go in grab a name of a hat and see what pops up or down. Yes. Although let's give us one positive stat. If you're in on it, right? I mean. We've got over the past four weeks. Chris Herndon has been targeted on forty four point one percent of his routes. That's the highest rate amongst all pass catchers wide receivers or tight ends during that time. You know, what I say unsustainable? That's what I say to stats like way to throw eight hundred all over stuff. I do buzzkill love it. Both kill roll back on script mentioned Baker Mayfield again because he has a great match this weekend against the Atlanta. Falcons, Mike we have seen Baker. So I we're having this conversation during the pre show meeting, and we mentioned before this four-game stretch of playing the chiefs the Steelers the bucks in the falcons that had had a chance to be the story in fantasy football Baker Mayfield ascending into stardom on the fantasy field. And he hasn't been a star Mike, but I tell you what as a streamer he's panned out basically every week. I think the fewest points yet in the game was fifteen like you take that as a streaming quarterback option. Would you envision a strong game? Again for Mayfield this weekend's a falcons, I think so because of the defense, right? That's really what's helped him out. And you look at what Atlanta's done so far in terms of weekly finishes allowed. This is what they've done so far again, this is where the quarterback facing them as finished every week Twenty-nine Nick foles week when I was a disaster. Obviously Philadelphia's offense since then seventh I ninth six I eighth and fourteenth this past week. Most fantasy fantasy points per game two quarterbacks this season. So yeah. Mayfield's average weekly finishes just outside the top fourteen. But he's been a little better with the better match ups. The offense looks much better. They have this guy named Duke Johnson young guy prospect, I guess they must have just discovered him. Yeah. From the you indeed. And he was more involved this past week. So that's good sign. The offense looks better. I feel like he's still has a kind of a cap sealing in terms of his fantasy production. That's what we've seen. So far is kinda limited in how high you can go. But again, there's there's a lot of pot positives here, and you love the matchup the qualifications for the fantasy waiver wire calling each week or do you be available in over fifty percent of leagues. Along those lines any Dalton it forty seven percent available. Did not qualify. But he might be a worthwhile. Streamer this week, Mike. He plays the saints at home off the bye now there is no Andy dealt I'm know AJ green. But might you like the match here for any dolls and against the saints. Here's my concern with all. And I mean, he's had a couple good matchups here there. He has not had heath a fantasy week better than eighth the season. That's his best finish he's capped out at eight. So that makes you really worry, especially without AJ green that he can go much higher than you know, you look at the saints. We've talked often about their struggles against passer so far this season naval out three straight top eleven fantasy weeks to quarterbacks and in five of their past eight games. Second most fantasy points per game to quarterback. So again you like to match but can don't take advantage? Sometimes guys just don't take advantages. Whether it's the the scheme offensively or the personnel or they they just don't have it in them. I mean Dalton not ending a ton with his legs either you'd like to see that. So it's kind of an odd year because you've had so many offenses take major league. Forward. So many quarterbacks have taken advantage of that or scoring a ton of fantasy points. And you can't just be who you were in past years. You have to have made that leap as well to keep up. And and he has not done that. Yeah. So far this season the saints and Bengals are both in the top four in terms of points allowed to opposing quarterbacks on a points per game basis. So on paper this profiles, a shootout. I have some reservations because I have some questions about the medal of the Bengals we saw them wilt on primetime a couple of weeks ago against the chiefs. I could see me in a trap to the saints are totally content running the football. And that's I've some reservations about your breeze for those reasons it's could be a lower scoring game that I think people think and that obviously the saints defense is is good. You know, they get involved shoot outs. But it they fall out of town on that side of the ball rankings. Of course available for those who are interested about where these quarterback stack up later on today on ESPN dot com. To the audio version it is probably already up Daniel time now for the library. You bet it is field. And if I had a fantasy SUV. V. It would be a Subaru. But it'd be a big one one with three rows of seats and loads of room for all the gear to haul around and someone at Subaru must have been listening because that's what they just introduced the all new three row Subaru ascent there's room for seven or eight passengers with a choice of second row. Captain's chairs or bench seat, and you can choose the arrangement that works. Best for you for you and all of your future hall of famers, and their friends, I could take the entire bowling team. And all of our gear to bowling night in one of these all new three row, Subaru ascents might clay that's important because you have like nine balls you bring any type of Shah wages here. We take it very seriously. But I just see him during the game. We have ten different shoes for different throws. That is accurate. This is a big deal. Everyone knows Subaru has a reputation for safety and with standard symmetrical all wheel drive and Subaru gives you the confidence to handle every sort of weather and roadking. Bishen? Now, you can get all the things people love about a Subaru along with plenty of room for growing families or your bullying team. These sent even comes in nineteen Cup holders and up to eight USB ports. Like, I said this thing is big the all new three rows Subaru sent love is now bigger than ever. And exploring the waiver wire is brought to you by the all new three row Subaru sent love is now bigger than ever field looking at the running backs here. There's a couple of guys that could be number one, Mike Davis. Do Johnson who lands is the number one spot for you. The you make a really good case for do because you said Daniel, but I'm gonna go with Mike Davis. And here's the reason why a lot of people are more short term focus right now on the waiver wire. And we don't know the extent of Chris Carson's injury. But let's say critique MRs three weeks, Mike, you've got an just making that up have. No, I've just hypothetical. Mike Davis will be what top twenty play for those three weeks at worst. I mean, he's been terrific when he's been on the field is season. I mean, he's been fishing ever seen four point three. A yards per carry two point one after contact which is about average has sixteen catches. So he's actually getting passing game work. Whereas Chris Carson certainly was not is three touchdowns. He's believe it or not Chris Carson only use three more fantasy points in Davis this season. It's kind of crazy. And by the way, he's also played a career high one hundred seventy six snaps already. So they're utilizing him heavily makes you wonder why they drafted running back in the first round, but he is playing well, and if and if Carson's out if it was pretty evident in this past week's game Davis will be the clearly back of push for twenty touches with Rashad penny. Helping him out by the way penny averaging almost five yards per carry. A since he started out like the first three weeks for rough since then averaging five yards per carry still hope for him. Don't give up yet and dynasty. No. There's there's still some some hope there for sure a lot of people panicking about him. I still think he's going to be good player degree and all that. I was stunned by the passing game usage for my Davis this past week seven catches for forty five yards that part is necessarily sustainable, but I will say that. I did not even realize that in the arsenal. Right. Like, I wasn't aware that my Davis. Was such an adept pass schedule from my point on having him. Head of Duke Johnson is like do Johnson nearly thirty points this past week. But when you are hoping for if you roster do Johnson is not for thirty point upside in a given week, Mike, I think what you're looking for is. Hey, I just be happy. If Duke get me somewhere between eleven and fifteen points most weeks, whereas if you roster my Davis, you might be open for minimum fifteen points for every week that he's the starter that Chris Carson could potentially be out. But that brings us the Duke Johnson because he was awesome last week. He's an awesome player. You just mentioned was a decent prospect, by the way, he's an amazing pass catcher. He's listening to leading rusher in history history of Miami. Who's had amongst many other players Edgerrin, James Willis, mcgahee, he Clinton Portis. There's been a ton of running backs that have come out of the university of Miami. It has been one of the great running back factories college football for quite some time. So dukes accomplishments should not be overlooked. He ran around on forty one point one percent of dropbox entering this pass. Tweak. It went up to fifty seven point dropped percent of dropbox in weeknight, we are hoping that the Browns continue to utilize them as much this past week, or at least not as much because I don't wanna make unrealistic expectations. But we just hope the Brown say he's a really good player. We need them. Yeah. He's not going to get nine targets and catch them. All single again mentioned seven five eight of them. Yes. He definitely can do that. And he's also not going to score two touchdowns a game. You hope for essentially what you're hoping for is that he gets seven or eight targets catches five or six of them puts up sixty seventy yards and maybe the occasional touchdown. That could get you fringe Rb two numbers in fantasy right now. The one problem I have and you just saw the graphic on the screen is one carry in that last game. You talked about his rushing efficiency at Miami. And he's brushed the ball fine. His first couple of years in the league. They're not using it. As a bulk air, you're seeing Nick Chubb get ninety percent of the carries that ratio needs to go up a little or a little closer in terms of the share in carries between those two guys. Get him five carries a game. Get him six or seven targets and healed again. He'll deliver talk twenty fantasy numbers e terrific player. So again, I have a little bit of concern there. Because this kind of this is like the ceiling of his passing game usage. But I'm a lot more optimistic after the coaching changes. Hell heidi? I'm rank this week. That's good question. I don't have my computer, but I would say twenty five right around. Yeah. Good call Mike. You're smart guy. You're smart Hoppy do a copy Edo Smith for the falcons. This is more. Just like he needs to be Rosser Morley's. I'm not sure why his Rosser percentage ranks a real remains at thirty one point eight percent, Mike. But until devante Freeman returns he's going to be a flex play every single week for us. Yeah. You send the conversation. I think I understand some of the reservations first of all he's not the lead back and you saw Kevin Coleman just come off. Probably his best game of the year is best game in a or. Yeah. Absolutely. He's playing for that big season contract. I don't expect him to be back in Atlanta next season. But nonetheless Smith is struggled with officiency three point six yards per carry only six point six yards per target. That's a problem and his his four touchdowns, but it's a little deceiving. Again, you look closer at his usage as expected touchdown total based on it usage or as TD one point eight. So he's more than double that up. That's that suggests that he's not going to be a very good touchdown resource going forward. We've talked about him is obviously the focal point of a board bat between Matthew, and I which that Tevin Coleman game this past week was music to my ears as he went crazy, and widened the gap between him and Edo Smith. But still again when you're looking at running backs this week, I defy you to get to fifty running backs that are actually worth ranking this week. I'm telling you, it's ugly out there. And that's always the case. Right. I mean, that's always the case at this time of the year finding running backs finding wide receivers a little bit easier to get the receivers at fifty but running back to fifty. Very difficult. Yeah. Absolutely. It's like Kyle used tech is always raid on that. Like you. You don't want to start Kyle, you know fantasy. But he's like there. It's like, I it's gonna give five if he's going to have had those two six catch games if forty four yards are he's announced this right now is this fair, or is this we go go for man. All right. It is just been announced that payroll Patterson of the patriots has had running back added to his positional eligibility on ESPN fantasy. Which is why we are now talking about him in the running back com. It's been added. It's good news. And I will just give the I think the cliff notes version Keith can tell me if I've spoken out of turn it all in the justification for this is that Pederson was available in ninety percent of leaks at this time of the year. We want to amplify the number of players that can be utilized in lineups. He's carried the football twenty one times over the past two weeks leading up to those two games. He had eleven catches and eight rushes this is not a fulltime wide receiver that has been transitioned to a full. I'm running back. This is a part time. He's is really kick returner who has been transitioned to a fulltime running back until Sony Michelle returns, but Mike. I think part of the cold water of this. The cold water disa- quesion is that we hear from Adam Schefter Sunni, Michelle, he has a Kubica practice could return. This are should return. This Sunday against the titans. Does that mean that coral Patterson's value has been zapped? Yes. I think you're going to start him if Michelle's back that said, I think the cat's out of the bag, and there's something to be said for his ability as a rusher here. Now, I want to speak for Bill Belichick. He always throws curve balls. And and that's something one of the things. That's great about that that franchise and staying a step ahead of the competition. But and who knows I mean, Cordell Patterson might start at defensive back this week seriously. Right. That said again, I think the cat's out of the bag. I think that he will be somewhat of a factor in the backfield going forward, they have depth issues. They prefer him to catch him Barner Kenyan Barner they have Sony Michelle and early downtown abbey. Say he doesn't do anything as a pass catcher. If teams wipe who plays a big role. I'll be surprised if we don't see Patterson get three four maybe five six carries a game going forward. Just because they like to use a lot of backs interesting. It will be really really interesting to see what happens to his role when Michelle Michelle returns, which sounds like it could be as soon as this Sunday night. He Mesa waiver wire column part of that is to secure yourself or insulate your backfield in case Michelle does not return on Sunday night. The patriots go on a by after that. Maybe this is a more enjoyable watching it from a football standpoint than it is watching it from fantasy standpoint, but intriguing all the same. And again, it's official now ESPN fantasy has made the amend the addendum. I don't know if the adjustment. Patterson is now available as both they running back and wide receiver. Keith they're just running back. Both both you cannot lose eligibility lose it. I'm Marianne rule. But we've talked about that. I say you get. Take him away. You take. It'd be the reason why that's the case is because there are leagues that. Yes. We could keep someone in their lineup. And that would make it an invalid lineup spot to make them fix it fix it. So we have the pedal way. The patriots do if they do get Sony. Michelle back this week, Mike, I am at fourteen in my running back rankings with James whites on my top ten that's about where you'd have those two right for this. You know, what I little bit lower a little more conservative for the reasons, I just laid out. I see Patterson mixing it especially this week with Michelle just coming back off the injury. So I'm I'm a little lower and probably closer to twenty. I need to take a look, but yeah, still early the week. Still news reports we'll see Mike rhesus. Maybe some reports from field Yates, Adam Schefter on what kind of role Michelle going gonna play. If he's in there. So we'll keep an eye on. Let's move along too wide receivers. And we'll go a bit out of order here. Because when I filed the column we had some new sits in that changed, but Willie Snead of the Baltimore Ravens has been rock solid and steady for them, Mike, he's gone into double digit scoring in. Seven of nine games play. Now, they go on a by. So I was figuring have to wait a week. But the numbers I think are probably backed up by his target percentage. Which is certainly target share one of your areas of expertise. Not go score. A lot of touchdowns. He's gonna see a lot of targets though. Yeah. He's coming off a good game in which she led the the ravens in receive actually Danny amendola did too for the dolphins. We talked about them on fantasy football number. But they had great matchup. You always have to keep that in mind. Yeah. When overvalue these guys, but Willie Snead drew Mike Helton in that game. Who's a fine corner? He'd actually had a good game. But the Steelers give up a ton of fantasy points to the saw. And he took advantage of that. However, you know, if you do take it a little deeper than just one week matchup and look at his usages season. You see that he's seventy targets. He second on the team. He has more targets in John Brown this year, and this is not a two headed attack. Like it look like early in the season with Michael Crabtree. And John round it is a three headed wide receiver group. Not, you know, not like some of the it's not like the Rams, of course, it's like a poor man's version of the row. Right. But they are using all three pretty equally and that's enough to keep keep Snead on the flex writer radar going forward. No one's throwing the football more this season than the ravens. And my point on Snead is like when you're adding players in the waiver wire it's important to know what you're signing up for he's a greasy really solid flex. He's not a player that you want to have in your second wide receiver slot. But if he's a flex for you in other three wide receiver twelve team league or a deeper league. He's going to justify the investment. He's been really good for them. And we'll talk about this. I think at some point more. But look at the last five games last six games of the season. Heck the last seven games the look at the schedule going forward. Ridiculous. I can't I don't have a computer angles raiders falcons. Chiefs bucks. Chargers browns. I would say six of those seven are very positive matchups in the chargers. Great schedule going forward for the Baltimore Ravens. Trick wants myth of the New Orleans. Saints ran a career high a career with twenty-seven routes run in week. Nine they're kicking the tires on Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall in Kamar Aitken today. Mike, it's clear they need some wide rece, or at least they seem to be looking for some wide receiver help in New Orleans trick wants mythos some encouraging signs for a talented player. Yeah. I'm hoping they're looking for receivers to replace potentially camera. Meredith all due respect him. He has mature game. They are not trae Quant Smith who. But again, they're looking at some perimeter guys, which makes you wonder because obviously trae Quan has been playing outside in that Ted Ginn role. Nonetheless, he hasn't really exploded in fantasy by any means. There's been four game since he's played this expanded release had no more than five targets in a game. He's averaging just under four per game. Averaging almost eighteen yards per catch this season. Again, you know, he doesn't have a weekly finish better than thirty three's one excuse me. One weekly finished better than thirtieth. And to me, I don't I don't really see Ted Ginn role. I see more like Robert mitchum or devry Henderson. It feels like the low volume he's gonna hit a fifty yard touchdown occasionally. But just not a guy you feel great starting right? And I want to I want to love Trayvon. It's just not not enough volume yet on paper. He's a number two wide receiver of one of the best passing offenses with one of the five or seven greatest quarterbacks ever. Like that alone has be interested. Yes, we'll see if it ever comes together. This could remind me of Corey Davis last year where it's like he's gonna find the way in front of what he's. Gonna find his way doesn't find sway. So just keep an eye on trae Kwan Smith available about eighty three percent of leaks. And if they signed Dez or or Marshall, I don't think they're coming in there to not play at all especially debts like he's gonna come in and soak up five six seven targets most likely that's going to be a problem for trade one. Keep an eye on that news later on today. Finally for wide receivers, it's probably the number one wide receiver at of the week, Mike Marquez Valdez scaling. And this comes on the heels of news that Geronimo Alison that groin injury suffered in practice last Thursday could be pretty serious like he might miss some time. Now could be facing surgery and with let's see the Packers. It's week ten. So that means there are eight weeks left of the season four weeks the fantasy regular season. Like he could be out for a while. Now, this Gatling I test tells you guys a player. Yeah. I like him a lot. I want to get this out of the way. I before I play a little buzzkill role because there's an extreme mount of optimism for him. I do like him. He's situated kind of like we just talked with Smith. Right. He's positioned for a big role potentially as a number two. In this Green Bay Packers offense one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. That said I mean look at its target shares. Twenty one percent thirteen fourteen fifteen percent that's his target. Here's the past four weeks. He's finished eleventh thirty third thirtieth an eighteenth at position in fantasy point. So he's getting you, you know, wide receiver three numbers. I mean, the average that out it's going to come out closer to wide receiver to but he's also catching a massive percentage of his targets downfield. He's had a lot of big plays which is going to be hard to project. Like, he he's over twenty yards per catch any reasonable person. Projecting him forward is not gonna have him projected over twenty yards per catch is just not a reasonable thing to do. So you need to see more targets a fourteen percent targeted of the past three weeks. That's not good enough. And I will say this to yes. Randall Cobb has been a little beat up and he hasn't been nearly as productive in fantasy. At least since he's been back from the injury. But he's out targeted the scaling each of the past two games. So again, there's a lot of upside here. But keep in check a little bit would not surprise me. If he got you fringe wide receiver three numbers or if he was extremely inconsistent going forward. Yeah. I think these truly. Firmly inconsistent is definitely possible for vol Dez scheduling, but they're six pass attempts. So far this season. They've been very inefficient though. Aaron Rodgers think is a career low in terms of completion percentage right now, not putting this all on Aaron Rodgers, obviously. But vowed scaling this is the nice dice. Roll the player that I think has some intrigue that along the same lines of tracfone Smith. I actually think it's more likely that have either one of them were to settle into a number to receive a role in his respective offense. It's MVS over trae Kwan Smith, it just feels like the reporters already developing more. And this is all anecdotal, right? It feels like the report developing more Valdez gambling than New Orleans. Moreover, like if New Orleans keep doing what they do offensively right now, they're fine. Where's the Packers need to rock the boat a little bit here? Right. Like they need to find answers for their offense. Because what they're doing right now is not good enough at three four and one wherever they are. So that's the part of the reason why again, I know that's totally inital and just sort of like gut feeling, but sometimes if fantasy those things can actually pay on potential league winner. Those guys are important like at trade once with perha-. Like John Ross if he act again, if they throw it to him seventy times a game, those guys have that massive ceiling you want to be a championship winner. All right time now to put mics brain to the test little back that up. Okay. So here's what just happened the soundboard broken. Again. It's not working for whatever reason. He's a. I swear I was watching Torika try to do it. And it wasn't working. But it's not her full, Mike. Four days. But I did not forget how to push it. But I think it's my computer broke everything broke. I think that's adds up. Thank you to Rica for that shadow Rica for handling put today, we're still beeping. We're still beeping are Mike. Let's begin we've sort of we've kind of touched on some of these already, but just keep going through them. Let's begin with Andrew lock face in the Jacksonville Jaguars. And we talk about actually here's a great little Pete behind the scenes. It's maybe not great. Maybe if oversold, but we do an insider column each week you and I are part of the roundtable were they ask us for amongst other things the upset of the week fantasy flop of the week fringe starter the week to start our fringe player of the week to start mine was the jets defense this week. Yes pick. I would do Johnson people Upshur people were like, dude. He just had a great game. And I'm like did you watch the first eight games of the season? Right. Duke Johnson's when my options, and my mom, so when I was going through players to sit for this week. My first thought was T Y Hilton or a flop was TY Hilton because of the great Jalen Ramsey in. How he is shadowed him. So Mike had already taken up the t y Hilton really jumped in there. I knew I knew you were going to do that. So other snagged him my other one that I consider it in the hard part was he played last night. Was I thought about Corey Davis because it is a very difficult match up this weekend against Gilmore he shadows. In for the patriots. I wound up on Andrew lock and Mike. I'm gonna allow you to make the case for this one. It's not that I think Angeles and to be a non factor, but it's a very difficult match up despite some of the defensive inefficiencies from the Jaguars over the past few games. Yeah. Absolutely. And we'll start with the Jags defense because that's really the key. Here luck has been lights out this season. I don't think people realize this. He's on piece for forty six passing touchdowns. It be a career high. I think he's healthy. Like, I think he's playing well. So he's deliver the goods, you know, some again, the the main reservation being the Jags defense say what you want about them taking kind of a step back and they've struggled a little bit. As a team. It's mostly been the offense. They've only they're allowing fifteen point five fantasy points per game two quarterbacks. That's outstanding. Second best in the league. Only two of eight opposing quarterbacks and managed to top sixteen fantasy week but both of them I mean to to both of them, I should say. Have come during their pastor games. That's something to think about. But again luck has been terrific five top ten weeks. So far there's some concerns with this game. He has eight interceptions only sixty three rushing yards. You'd like to see him running the ball little bit more as he did earlier in his career and not turn it over which is important in our standard scoring so some pluses here some minuses, I think the way he's played. He's a fringe QB one. But with this Jags defense at you know, he's not a top five play. Zeke Elliott's in the Dallas Cowboys we talked about this earlier, we alluded to this being a part of our conversation face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Football more Cowboys in prime time. Philadelphia's allowing a league low fifty point six running back rush yards per game. So far this season. Mike, I Elliott run eight or nine and my rankings. I think I have made a flipped him in James white the last minute eight to nine, but that's kind of where you had MS. Well this week. Yeah. I do have many in the projections. And again, we'll the positive here is again, we mentioned this before it's a run heavy offense. Seek is the centerpiece of the offense. They they give him the ball. All as often as they can on the ground. And we're seeing it expanded role for him as a pass catcher twenty nine catches already the season his previous career high was thirty three as a rookie seventeen percent Tari chair this season. That's a big number. That's what you like to see. But a lot of negatives. Here. Eagles six was fantasy points to running back so far this season Zeke himself how how is he played? So far this season. He's finished better than tenth that running back twice in eight games. And he's finished fourteenth or worse. Three of his past four weeks on pace for only eight touchdowns. It's only three carries inside the five yard line. So again, a lot a lot of numbers and firing at you as usual, but it all has added up to again kind of good second round fan. I got you would take an a front end of the second round of your drought. Not a guy you take in the top five just a little underwhelming. You know, it's interesting Mike because it's like I think when people hear you're back then up they expect it to be like a complete. Swan inside a news, right? Like he's going to be benched. Ziegler. That's not the case. It's never that simple in projections. Like, you know guy can have a great match up in disappoint. It's going to happen every single week as we tell people don't get cute, right? I mean, the matchup be damned like it's still going to be Zeke Elliott is still gonna play probably eighty five to ninety percent of the running back snaps and still going to get eighty five to ninety percent of the running back touches. So there's interesting look at Zeke Elliott, Mark Englishman, come become really difficult to evaluate. So far this season. He was awesome. When he comes back after that after that suspension. Right. And he's had the by. And now he's since come back down to earth a little bit fifty carries for one hundred eighty one yards. That's three point six yards per carry this season. How do you view as outlook the Bengals twentieth? This week right now, which is you know, some conservative, you know, not totally crushing him based on where he's been the past three weeks. But there's a things to like you're the big one being that the Cincinnati Bengals are lying to fifth most fantasy points to running. Back sub. You mentioned. I mean, his weekly finishes. He was ninth in that first game thirty seventh twenty eighth and fifty fourth. So he has not been so hot as of late in the reason is a dip in playing time. He's handled thirty nine percent of their carry so far. He was fifty three percent last year. Nine percent of the targets. He was at thirteen percent. Last year. He's been on the field for thirty six percent of pass plays forty four percent. I year. No. Yeah. He's only averaging three point six yards per carry. I still think there's hope he's playing a a decent role in a great offense. I think he'll bounce back especially in this match. But obviously some reservations he has taking more of a step back. Taking more of a step back in his uses than than I think we expected the interesting part with marketing, your miss this. Most people snagged Mark Ingram feeling really good about the value of where they got him. Right. You managed expectations four-game suspension weeks six by like there were a lot of signs of suggested. Art like, hey, like, there's not worth the early draft capital. So I think there are not doing that are disappointed with Mark Ingram and how he's performed so far. But where it gets interesting is what do you do with them now because look at the running back question marks. And for me, they begin like right around like fifteen or sixteen like how you recommended front. Yeah. That's tough. You know, like I've got fifteen or sixteen Marlin MAC very good Jaguars defense. I wanna have more top twelve got him at seventeen so marketing got twenty four you look at all these numbers. These guys that are in that mix, and it's just really hard to rank running back. So I think Mark Ingram was one of those players that might be frustrating week to week, but it composite he's broken end up as a top thirty running back from the first game of his season on say like that's what I drafted him for. That's what I drafted. Mark ingram. I'm okay for the most part with where he has been. Let's get back to Tyler Boyd. And we talked about the New Orleans defense being fairly generous to opposing quarterbacks. They've been very generous opposing wide receivers as well. You and I have her has reservations about at least. I do like I'm nervous the Bengals will. Wrangle this thing on Sunday. The word is tailored Boyd look out. What's his outlook for week ten in your projections? This week, Mike. Yeah. Just to add on to what we talked about before. I mean, again, he's he's seen a massive share of the workload already is a full-time player. He's handling twenty three percent of the targets. He's delivering wide receiver to numbers and with AJ green and his giant target share out of there. He comes in at number thirteen this week. I mean you look at the saints defense. Most fantasy points allowed to receivers this season at thirty six per game. You know, boys going to be heavily involved in take on a reasonable chunk of those? And here's probably the biggest key is match up. He's going to ease into slot. He's not going to play outside. You know, they're gonna use Ericsson out there. John Ross John Josh Malone. We talked about some of these guys before he's going to get PJ Williams, and he has been unquestionably one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL this season losing Patrick Robinson was huge for them. And they just don't have a fallback option. So with him against Williams big usage defense struggling against the past for the most part the season, especially in the slot. He set up for nice day. More to come later on this week on the age. Jay green situation wants to find you as a chance to chime in tomorrow. And also just how the rest of this Bengals pass catching group will size up? They're going to have to get some sort of value from somebody not named Tyler boy, I think one of the biggest question marks going into this weekend. Mike is how Tapie utilized against the Dallas Cowboys eagles debut. He had more than a full week to get ready because of their bye week. But there's Sean Jeffrey Zach ertz, those Nelson Aguilar, we saw a strong starting debut for Mark Cooper last night. How do you view golden Tate in his eagles debut? I've met wide receiver eighteen I think he's gonna play a very significant role out of the gate because it's him or Jordan Mathews out there. And I think and by the way Matthews is probably exceeded expectations on small target. Cher. He's made some place for them, but Tate, obviously, a significant upgrade. And here's the thing. I mean Tate hasn't delivered a lot of you know, downfield big plays. He's done. He's done great with the ball in his hands. But you like to see and they'll try to get him the ball in the short area, but he's gonna play on more than the primitive. You know? He's been a slot guy the past year and a half. With Nelson angler inside renaissance him on the outside most likely and you look back at his career. He's a five percent touchdown rate when he lined up on the permanent. He's only three point five percent in the slot. And that doesn't sound like a big Abbott extrapolate that over a career? It's a big app. In fact, us twenty four touchdowns on the outside. Only twelve in his career in the slot. So it's a pretty significant baby scores more his average dipped to target by the way in the perimeter outs. As you would expect deeper downfield more big plays, potentially more touchdowns. Maybe a smaller catch rate. But in this eagles offense that is. You know, it was great last year has been okay this year and Carson Wentz is playing lights out this season. Despite their struggles, I say with air quotes, I think he's he's going to be fine for wide receiver to numbers. This this season. I will say this though, Byron Joneses. Maybe the best corner the NFL this season. He's going to see him about half the time which is a little bit of a problem, but he should be. Okay. So no forecast of a shadow this week. No Byron Jones was stick to his side. And yeah, he doesn't shadow. Yeah. Eventually. Yeah. Up against Byron Jones. There's a list of. Teams that does not shadow. In fact, I think the actually the only team since I started doing this. I track every week. I go through and see how they deploy corners every team. I've been doing this for four years. The only team that hasn't done at once. What do you think it is the only thing there's only one team that has not shot a single time in four seasons four seasons. No shadowing. Let me think on this here for a second. T t t t t t to give L let's say, I'll give you Hanson. We just heirs. We just no we just crossed the Bengals off the list. They were one of two teams. This team is very good one of the best teams in the league. The New England Patriots. Nope. Not the patriot ams. Nope. To one loss there. You think the belief? The young lions chiefs chiefs. Yes, Andy Reid and the cheese pops on Netflix isn't do that team doesn't show. Remember, Marcus Peters. All Amir's didn't shadow solving this season. So factors rash sake. Fun fact sums up with Mark, Marcus Peters. Not playing right. Yes. Not playing speaking one of the worst corners in the league. He's had his hands that she's throwing the something there. Now, I think he's gonna bounce back. But I think he's hurt right now is what it comes down to Marcus Peters. But I respect the fact that he is making no excuses whatsoever. For his performance up to this point again, golden table talk about him more throughout the week. His first game in Philadelphia. Taking on the Dallas Cowboys Daniel any business to close the podcast. Yeah. Man. We us some Twitter questions here. We're going to start with the first one comes from adds to find his guns. Usually we have someone that goes sleeveless on this show. Mike, clay, obviously that would have to be you. Oh, you can't do it. Oh, the fans will really disappointed. We didn't have have gone. Some says there's a brand new shirt. Wow. Brand new shirt. So I'm not cutting this sleeve shirt. Mike like that. House over the weekend Janet, the southern proper for this shirt Keith is going to do some rapid fire. We only got three minutes here. So we're going to a quick quick quick. With these questions. There's a handful of them here. Not Twitter 'less DJ wants to know who to play in the flex spot. Muhammad, sue carry on Johnson or de Westbrook. Johnson meets carry on Johnson. Yeah. As well. It's difficult matchup this week against the bears who've been top five in terms of rush touchdowns in rush yards per game allowed just one rushing touchdown allowed by the bear. So far this season. But like me some kerryon Johnson. Okay. Boston baller. Thirteen wants to know shed drop. Kennedy golladay for Calvin Ridley, no whole tight on golladay. He's gonna bounce back. So he's more nervous about Kenny audiences. I'm not I'm not nervous back all of the town f c hockey wants to know should who should I play it to flex scheduling Godwin OJ Howard. Or this is said shady McCoy at is said OJ Howard, really how I'm gonna go. I'm gonna still I send negative things. I'm still going to go Val the scandal. Think more more. Chance at a big play. But Howard's been terrific shady McCoy is not your. I know I know he's just and maybe Derek Derek Anderson may play that may help running game a little bit. So there's there's a shot from a quarterback. Syon to twenty wants to know thoughts on Mike Williams for the rest of the season not optimistic. You know had a touchdown this past week. That was not a touch any again. He had a. Yeah. It was not a touch out heated great match up to as well and still he's only getting three or four targets and he equalled Travis Benjamin in routes member. Benjamin's been hurt when Mike Williams has really exploded the past couple of weeks. So he's back in the mix too. It's it's it's not ideal. He's a bench player at best. Last one. I got here is from coach Jesse war. He wants to know I've been offered Robert woods for woods. I went to Woodside. I look at it. Like this like, I don't know that there's there's a truly distinguished differ between those two they both have a buy week still coming up at a men's at seventeen plus points in back to back weeks. I don't know. I'm not like to me like you're trading initially improve your team, right? Six in one hand half dozen in the other. How would look at it? I pretty close call out of the way, it's cost. But what is this just been getting such a massive share of the work? I mean, I know adamant and gets a decent share as well. But man that Rams offense. Just ridiculous more passing yards this year. It was more. What offer Brady no woods are Elleman more passing yards? I see what you did there. Yeah. Patriots deployed a couple of is there. Going back to his Kent state days. We are back on Wednesday full boat against to find you will be joining Mike and I- plenty of information. I'm sure we talking about rankings news talk about AJ, green, even more. Plus what if the saints make a move at wide receiver? In the meantime, Mike, clay, NFL, Twitter and Instagram once he has his computer up and running again, he'll be able to answer all of your questions. Give you some of the best insight. Thanks as always the crew. I met feel dates on Twitter and Instagram. We're back on Wednesday. It's week ten guys time to make your lineups count. Let's do this. Without you tomorrow. Six. You guys. Go ahead. Give me for being on sportscenter for forty five seconds because I don't think. If your terrible at Pash, tag, improv. You'll gate. Fun. Secrets daniel.

Let's get into the news news notes from around the league presented vice nice sleeper brooks is just always athletically surprising us the beach race. He ends up winning. That was going away. If there were odds if there were betting odds about who won that race and you you would have put money on brooks that you would have had one hundred to one. He's also pretty good ping pong player. That's true like he does its heart. You can't measure brooks. Brooks is heart. No no all right speaking thursday cowboys owner jerry jones says he expects holdout ezekiel elliott to miss games cool reiteration of yesterday's news but it happened on thursday so wait and see with ezekiel elliott. I thought what was interesting from the comments was basically him saying he can't miss them all and won't miss them all. I don't know if he's reassuring. Employees can't missile mall. It was a weird statement. Would you just throwing this name out there because obviously we've been telling everybody go grab tony pollard. Make sure you have him if you're zeke owner if you're not the zeke on at this point make sure tony pollard is not on waivers. Would you even play the consideration game of grabbing alfred morris <hes> the astronauts tempus owed right so at the very end. Would you stash alfred morris or is. He trashed a little a little preview yeah i. I don't know i think unless you're in deep league. Probably wouldn't we know that. Tony pollard has played all the snaps that dak prescott his play. They're they're telling us with their actions that he'll be the stanford hollered is going to be the guy until zeke is back julian edelman scare in week. Four of the preseason yesterday went down down. Why on the hand that he had surgery on he says it's fine after coming up after the play grabbing the the thumb so fantasy owners were freaked out is like this one is wild big. It's it's not the first time that bill belichick has played join element in a situation where everyone on the outside is scratching their head. Certainly uncle bill has earned the benefit of the doubt at this point point. He has a reason for the things that he does but as just what water you doing man in preseason week four. I mean there with the wide receivers you you have right now. You're gonna risk julian edelman the <hes> the raiders on the flipside. I believe they are only bringing about fifty players. Here's to the seahawks like they're not bringing the like not playing so careful here no use this is a there's a final destination situation. You stay in your room. You you close the door. You put mattresses everywhere. You stay safe. I'm always amazed that the cardinals played up in mile high played the broncos last night players larry gerald who are not going to play a suit up. You know what i mean. They put on all the gear. That would seem like a big hassle like you're not because let's suit up. You put on your pads. It's just getting that's getting your body used to okay. I'm prepared for game action. I'm gonna warm up i'm going to i'm starting to get into the routine. I like players warming up and dressing because that's i think that actually does help a player. Get ready mentally for the season but getting out and like putting join adult men out there wrote. He's he's good man he doesn't need to do it. You know who didn't need to be out there. Josh jordan and this one. I i agree with. He has been reinstated. He is eligible to play week one. He caught two of six targets for thirty hours last night. He still very large have had an is broken tackle. So how confident would you be a to play here. I'm going to ask the first week one question for a friend to sean jackson. Has the finger issue. Gordon gordon has the unknown of how much work does he get didn't get a whole training camp. All of that josh gordon or does shawn jackson. Josh gordon enjoy scored josh gordon. He's at home. He's versus the pittsburgh steelers in what in a game that should have a decent amount of points put up also has just ten working fingers and he has a judge. Gordon should be a starting wide receiver now that g._d. Jax isn't a starter but it's like will he be out there for every single wide receiver repackage so if you play josh gordon makes her he's in your flex sure oh yes that's great. Look at this piece of in-season advice. You're saying that because he plays on thursday that's right and so if you play him it makes her. He is not sorry. Did i say in your head and i was very confused. Trick question make sure he is not in your flex even though he's probably a flex type player x rays in your starting lineups so that way you do have flexibility ex- ability to put somebody in your from either position in your flight. Yeah we talk about these players as it's. He's a wide receiver one wide receiver to he's a wide receiver three the actual starting lineup of your platform they they don't care where you put the players but you're you're putting yourself at a disadvantage. If you play a thursday night player player in your flex because it removes flexibility alright ryan fitzpatrick getting the start week one against the ravens lucky guy ryan patrick. Do you have interest in playing great streaming ryan fitzpatrick against the ravens yeah industry mable matchup heck yes. I will be interested. Kareem hunt underwent sports hernia surgery on thursday morning. Now that's a four to six week timeline. He's not eligible to return turned action until week ten as it is but passing that news along and then the ping pong ball of kiki bill o'brien says he's a ping pong long ball sound like i believe it's identical two o'clock. If i remember correctly it's yes oh yes there it. Is you go back to the archives as i made that very clear to you. Kike turning in the right direction could play week one now okay well. I like taking him late indra. I liked the player. I'm saying okay to this. This is bizarre. We're already into these shenanigans. I guess i guess bill o'brien all right. That's today's today's news and notes news and notes brought to you as always by sleeper download the free app. Move your league over there. It's a modern platform of infinite customisations so so infinite it hurdles so infants all infinite it hurts so all right without further ado. Let's get into our main segment for today's podcast stash trash. Here are now now brooks. You put a disclaimer in there. What do you want the people to understand about stash or trash. <hes> you gotta take your league into account your if you have an extra bench spa spa. Maybe these trash doesn't apply to you for all these players that sort of thing so kill me. What i gotta do. Brooks keep your league in mind. <hes> we're making stashower. Asser trash picks today deciding on some players that are on the edge of rosters right. These are double digit players. These are guys that you drafted late late. They might be on your waiver wire but one thing is for sure. They all got a little bit of a stench upon them. That's fair and the truth is this is you're going to need some flexibility week. One in the waiver wire and we're going to try to bring forth names and whether or not you need to hold onto them through through that period of time where you're tempted by the week one stars because they'll be probably ten to fifteen players on the waiver wire after week one yeah that have put up double digit fantasy performances and people will be waiting through them saying are these legit players are they ogle trees are they well disney's. You know those types of players especially ashley at the tight end position. Honestly you know the t._j. Hawkins and have a double digit week one and she jumped to conclusions that type of thing. Let's start at the running back position again. Dion lewis is being drafted at the thirteen o one so thirteenth round. Pick dion lewis stash stash or track. What's wild about dion. Lewis is to me. He is one hundred percent a stash look last year. He had sixty seven targets they he was the dare was given the chance to be the guy. It didn't work out then they've tried to give dion lewis the chance to be the guy that also didn't really work out so they went back to henry but lewis is not being talked about at all derrick henry is and he was talking about so much last season because of how efficient and effective he wasn't new england and henry is is the hot draft pick but we were we had our league of record draft and i had my co owner damon was there and we were like do we drafty on lewis. I just couldn't bring myself to draft him. Even though i think that he is a valuable able stash it really depends on your league here but i think you should hold onto lewis because he might come out and get four targets week. One and the derrick henry henry experiment might get off to a very slow start. I i am not bullish on on dion lewis. He had so much opportunity to be good last year here and wasn't he was pretty much relevant for most of the year even though he got plenty of carey's plenty of targets however at the end of the draft derrick henry has been dealing with a problem. He says he's hopeful to be ready for week one and he came back. You know to the team but i mean he's hopeful to be right week one. That's that's where you do want to stash. That's where you say okay well. Maybe as a setback this week and all of a sudden you've got the complete one hundred percent starter or indian lewis <hes> if henry was back if henry was out there i would probably trash him but knowing that there's some murkiness to the derrick henry injury i would stash to be fair to dan lewis. He did have at least a handful of of solid games including week one where he had over one hundred yards from scrimmage alone he was the running back twelve last year week one so as an rb one. Maybe you can get this year again. Also an example of how weak one can treat fantasy owners. Oh everyone go get your dion lewis. He's a he's a running back one. Yeah i mean all of the offseason. Talk seem to pay off at that time all right. I don't have anything thing to add on dion lewis. I agree with you. I think he's a stash because of the calf injury colts running back name hines fourteenth round pick. He's a trash crash for me yeah. I'm not super interested in in holding onto him. He will be the pass catcher. I think that we saw how they used them. Last year. Marla mac is capable but they still gave that role to nineteen hines but he was he had a lot of targets a lot of opportunity but he was incredibly credibly inefficient that was andrew luck guiding the offense jacoby percent maybe better than he was a couple years ago but he's still is not angel lux. Uh with the offensive hit. I'm not really interested now brooks. Do you take this as a personal insult that we are unanimously trashing one of your guys in every draft that i've ever been in this off season. You're always coming over to my computer. Your point like oh. I believe in heinz i know so. Do you still believe in her. I was gonna ask looks the same question yeah yeah. He's late enough. Where i'll i'll keep them on. I'll stash them now. We have some breaking news not pushing the button because that button is for sorry n._f._c. relevant news. This is just sad news for jason. Oh no rodney anderson torres a._c._l. Oh tour last year bengals rookie he running back. Yes thank you brooks my goodness. He's done yeah i mean his career is done really sad. He was a very talented player right and so oh good he was the best running back in this class in my opinion but the reason he dropped to the six round was because he's missed pretty much every year of his career and he's had an a._c._l. He's ad broken bones. I think a neck problem basically if you can have an injury he's had it it sucks and then the free season that's gotta be. I'm mentally difficult situation to deal with knowing now you recover. You have to recover from that again. Just shot the the quick fantasy implications thousands of it was that were fantasy show tree on williams who is right now the third string running back for the cincinnati bengals dynasty he definitely gets. It's an upgrade to me all right. Let's go ahead and turn to a couple of other names time montgomery c._j. Anderson both fourteenth round pick stash asher trash. I am not in on time montgomery. He's not a stash from me. I don't believe that we're talking about about an offense that well. I like sam darnold or like some opportunity to improve. I don't think we're talking about a good enough offense to to make me interested in stashing time montgomery gumri on my bench because i'm only looking at him to have value if levy on bellas out so he's a he's a trash from one hundred percent. He is nothing more than a handcuffed up to the levy on bell owner. I drafted him in a fourteen team league where i was the levy on bell owner in those deeper leagues that's the context brooks is looking looking for. That's where i'm willing to draft a handcuff otherwise no. I'm not i'm gonna keep my eyes on bid hard. If love bell goes down but he should be on the waivers. I don't expect him to be <hes> getting the volume that makes him weekly startle all right then mr kerryon johnson yeah reuther. It's it's really really hard to read. The tea leaves that detroit has laid out for us because it looked like there dworkin leafs chiefs. Yes they are and my leaves. You had the first action with kerryon johnson. He was getting pulled on third down and c. J. anderson was coming in then. You had the next scene where carrie johnson was in for a string of snap but any was put on ice real quick and c. J. anderson was getting to carry. You've also had c. j. anderson and showing up as the third down back in some of those preseason games. I don't understand why people who are out on. Carry on johnson are not drafting c. J. anderson because the <unk> argument that they are making is that this is a real split and that third down or goldline could be c._j. Anderson's but c. j. anderson's undrafted. It's like if you you don't believe in carry on. He's perfect perfect stash because you're gonna find out we want. What is the role. You're going to see how it breaks down now. I i'm cool with week one stash on c. j. anderson. I don't see a lot of value beyond that because i'm not competing for you know low snap totals in tampa. I don't want those l. I have him on my team but i don't have a gun to wally yeah so it's one of those things where i'm not personally out out of respect for carry on job. You're not doing that. I'm not stashing c._j. Is what if this shit goes down. You wanted to go down. I'm the ship and i deserve to be in that room drowning when that ship goes down either way everybody screaming at you. Just i'm gonna leap onto the back c. j. anderson he'll take you to shore. I'm telling everyone in your c. J. anderson boat. I'm saying here on the ship but my rose. My point is if you food are one of those people that believe that carry on's being overdrafted. He's going to be a bust this year. You should be drafting c. J. anderson it doesn't make sense since not to <hes> and personally when i look at the statute trashes the i'm looking at that as will i find out week one. I don't wanna hold the guy that i find out by week five. I'm not as high as you are on. Kerryon johnson and i'm not drafting c. j. anderson so i don't. I don't think that's a <hes> like some sort of logical fallacy. I'm not excited about c. J. anderson exists to hurt carry on. He doesn't exist to help my team. That's how i feel about him because 'cause he's a four fourteenth round pick. They don't if he and carry on split golan carries whoa i've got three or four touchdowns each over the course of the year. I guess i'm just is not excited about. I don't think c._j. Is going to run away with the job carry-ons the better player yes that's true so but if they were splitting it's crazy that one guy going back. They were leading sure sure go into the back of the second. The others like bright. I don't believe they're splitting my goodness. I hope not jason for your sake. Your mental health devon single terry tenth round. Pick justice hill a tenth round. Pick both guys being drafted ahead. Some ahead of some of these handcuff players single terry's had a lot love publicity just being he's talented rosiak juice in a backfield in buffalo where leshan mccoy's there and frank gore's there so you've got the the long in the tooth running backs and so he's being drafted well ahead of lewis hines montgomery anderson but single -tarian hill. Who are you more interested in between those two. If you have to stash ask one of them trash one of them. What do you do if i have to stash one. It would be justice. Hill i think long term he can work his way into a <unk>. A role even with the current depth chart but devon single terry is for me is a one hundred percent stash through this weekend. This is when the big it cuts are going to happen if the move with shady mccoy that has been whispered about all off season. If that's going to actually happen it will come right now. It will be a shock and everyone will freak out and run to grab devon single terry off your waiver wire. You should already have him and speaking of that logic. This is very deep. This is a very very deep deep stash but a running back who has been projected to be off the team he is the running back projected to be off of justice. Hills team is kenneth dixon. Beat reporters think that the ravens are filing in a throw in the towel. They're finally going caught him. Kenneth dixon is actually an extremely talented running back. Things have just he's had really bad brakes but there's teams on this. I'm not as fault some his fault. Yes yes exactly but there are teams out there like the houston and texans and the tampa bay buccaneers that can dixon becomes available they might snatch up and he might be thrust into a role sooner than later so listen. I'm saying fourteen team. Leagues deeper leagues. I five point six a carry last year on a sixty carries. That's what it is and put up here and he's a a good <hes> pass catcher so yes. You've got a well rounded back that it yeah if he ends up in houston. He's he's someone to keep an eye on and i would. I would trash devon single terry tomorrow not today after the cuts. That's happened before we get into the wide. Receivers of the stash trashed one.

That was the wonder if that ever backfired on them and they got a tyrant through the window. I hope not i hope obinna but <hes> by the way you guys brought up this in your <hes> head and shoulders debate discussion argument fight wheelbarrow. We'll barrel this came up on. We bring this up on this show. I don't i don't think so so on our siriusxm. Show it comes up all of a sudden. Mike and jason have lived their entire lives. Yes believing that the word is wheel barrel and according to the twitter poll we put up forty percent of you out there agree or had had previously thought of the object as a wheel barrel and had the courage to click on your thought. I think the poll results we need minus of file barreling orland down the back yard with a wheel barrel full of rocks and i believe that we need more literacy in america. That's that's what i learned for about forty percent more than we have. What you need is authors to start writing the word wheelbarrow so incredible to me and so we had a fun time on on the show you guys now. Are you making the transition. You normally never barrel. You're calling it a wheelbarrow anyways not a thing. I've told you that i'm out on new music music. Yeah i just want nineties music in in my life and i call it a wheelbarrow in the ninety s self for everyone listening you have to understand. We're probably probably gonna keep saying bengals instead of bengals right jack jack wire wires bengals because that's the thing instead of <hes> degwar jaguars tagore's jaguars. We get some things wrong. That's okay we help your fantasy. Stashower trashed wide receivers jamison crowder. The wide receivers are harder yup jamison crowder quincy noon will crowder being drafted in the eleventh annual undrafted. I would be stashing jamison crowder order metoo of the two nine quincy noon while yes yeah what we've seen is jamison crowder getting that got underneath that short work which if you recall last year i know different offensive scheme but the the player who had that role for sam darnold whether it was quincy noon wa germain kerr's i held onto what ver very short time but they they had success they were they had p._b._r. Success on top of that you have the robbie anderson calf mystery story. That's happening hopefully that mr will be cleared up and robbie's good to go week one but i'm with you andy out of the two. It's jamison crowder and it's just for the unknown factor is just to see what he does with darnold if he has this connection with darnold and week one. I mean mike you talked about. Coal beasley talk about adam home faddem humphries. I'm free james occurs in the same category of what if you got a p p r monster especially with the injury if they let darnold throw the ball more and crowder comes out if crowder at eight eight catches and week one i wouldn't be surprised nor would i yeah i mean it's it's funny to hear you guys say i'm more on the quincy noon what side in the sense that he's not new to this team. He's got two years with darnold donald. You've seen a connection in the past with him while hernan his out i mean he's a master that middle of the field area. I feel like the first four weeks with robbie's injury. I'm more on the quincy side <hes> i mean. That's the thing though is you. We don't know for sure and by we. I mean the whole world does not. I know whether if quincy will be the the main target ahead of crowder or crowder will be ahead of quincy. I don't think you've been able to really glean that from <hes> <hes> <hes> the main preseason games at both been utilized at both looked fine. It's nice that quincy noon wa is healthy. Yes at this present moment in time because when he's been healthy healthy he has been a very good player. He is a very good player. Bills wide receiver john brown being drafted in the twelfth round stanford trance john brown on stash heck yes stash. That's a great stash. I mean look. I think i'm out on brown really yeah. I think i am we're. Where'd you guys. Weren't you in on foster earlier before. They added john brown not really okay. I liked seeing the direct connection between josh allen and fossilized here but you still have the problem that i have is just volatility. I think i'm out on john brown because i know volatile hobie in an offense that doesn't throw the ball as much as others. He was not a good wide receiver receiver with lamar jackson. I don't see it being very different with josh allen week to week because i think zeke jones is going to be a higher frequency target for josh jalen. I think called beasley. We'll be a higher frequency target agreed so i think volatility wise. I'm kind of like. I think john brown will give you a big game. He'll probably be like the week one waiver wire pickup of the year because they'll have like a touchdown. That sounds like someone used stash and trade then yeah you could do that. You could do that for sure. Just don't have a problem with that. I'm just saying and then you play them two weeks. I just don't know if you're going to consistency from john brown anymore. I can totally by just this is my take on giambra well. You're not going to get consistency. It's not going to be an every single week thing from a low oh passing volume but you're not necessarily going to get consistency from sean jackson now. That's true do sean jackson's more proven carson wentz as more accurate so obviously the sean jackson a tier above good comparison. It's the same type of player and certainly if you're in a best ball league john brown's gonna get his deep balls from the cannon arm some of josh allen several times through the year but in your home league ed's. It's going to be hard to know win to start him win to play him but mike you bring up a good point point. If he hits you know if he's hitting half the time or forty percent of the time if that forty percent happens on week one. You're going to have trade value for sure so staffer staffer. You might yeah he. He is and it's because the last point i was going to bring up his robert foster last year last year. When josh allen came back robert foster was also coming back and then we saw you saw four games over ninety yards in those final seven foster was was part of the reason. Josh allen was great for fantasy. Now you're right probably worth seeing what you have with him. Being a twelfth round pick golden tate. I it's written in here as he lions wide receiver by bro. Oh good old days teams right. It was two teams seattle seahawk golden james. I'm sorry bricks for calling you out but if you had let that a piece of paper hit albor lynn in the face earlier maybe i wouldn't have the call hours deserved. <hes> golden state is new york football giant. He's also suspended for four weeks twelfth round pick right now. If you were drafting golden tate no trash to one hundred percent trash i mean there's there's there's no way now. I just brought up john brown for best ball. Is he a week three stashed in i mean are you going after take when he's on his way back hundred persona clog your bench and i don't want week week. One waivers are so important for your year and so are weak to those. Two first. Weeks are incredibly important to have a guy. That's not not able to play on your bench. That's i would never draft golden tate and redraft however because of that suspension he is dropping like bananas in the best ball leaves bananas could drop from a tree right sure. He's dropping a copy of my life. He's dropping light bananas. Look openness. Do go down down down down. Yeah people slip on banana laughter. They drop what maybe that's why there's such a slipping problem exactly going down. Mike bananas in best ball notre dame name wide receiver golden tate is a great option because wider comes. Just go back <hes> he's you you miss us for four weeks but you've got the whole season ev essentially everyone's in the playoffs in basketball because you get you get you know sixteen full game name so you're getting twelve games from a good value and he's dropping as if it's redrafting best ball but in a normal home league no. I'm not stashing for week. One golden tate are here. Here's a really really good one marquise goodwin and deebo samuel forty niners wide receivers are both massive stashes for me. We're talking tom. Selleck selleck level stashes. Ooh e bows in listeners hundred percent in week. One i wanna see i wanna see what what happens week. One with that wide receiver core kyle shanahan has said jalen hers not playing week one jalen. It hurt his out markey's goodwin deebo samuel dante pettis. Let's let it shake out on the field week. One i don't wanna be chasing deebo on the waiver wire when he catches eight passes and the you know steps in turn taylor's out too so you just get to see it in week one and i'm a big stash on both i am a very a big stash on marquees goodwin. Yes i am not a stash on deebo samuel i don't i i miss dash of yours. <hes> ooh no no oh. You're going to get a card. You get a three on that. One seemed like you got three because that was already out. That's correct that this this is just. I grabbed this to give a three. That's only grabbed his scorecard f three. That's the best i could have hoped. Goodwin is second year in the system is currently currently healthy. He's the fastest man alive or close to it definitely the fastest man in the n._f._l. <hes> definitely not the second your system you owe with. He's been there for three years. Yeah well. I okay multiple years system but with garoppolo coming in. I'm just saying felt like you were about to say no. No i'm still right even though i said two. Oh two fellows i- mustache you a question the cards out. I love that one there we go. She hadn't a solid eight. Okay thank you. Are you interested in a player who when jimmy garoppolo started his career for san francisco head three straight games of one hundred yards being that was markey's goodwin who earlier in the off season no. I was not interested because it sounded like goodwin was going to get cut. He has a massive injury history so which that exists the injury risk for good when his is still one hundred percent there but the this fall of dante pettis. This has been a huge benefit for from archies goodwin who is a locked in week one starter for this team. I wanted to stash and see what i got for. Goodwin yeah not depot though i'm all about deebo samuel you guys are both gonna regret it and we maybe maybe he's the he's the polar opposite vibes of dante pederson that offense being constantly asked to do more. I don't think that the that you're wrong on. There's a there's a chance that happens. I just have one or or two spots where i can actually stash player so i don't. I don't want to stash a rookie wide receiver who they might be started. Brooks wanted us to have that that you have different decisions to make you don't get to stash all these players. You have to make you know so dash decisions depot. John brownie probably stashed in john brown in that situation so i i want to ask the question here between deebo marquees goodwin if you you've got one spot to stashed both on your waivers. You're listening to this show. That's quite rather stash there. I think man wow you're even considering yet to me. That's wild man depot is being drafted ahead of him. Not that validates my point if i picked debo here but i like i like upside and i think goodwin offers you we've seen him. He's a big play guy. He gets injured a ton. Deebo samuel um you i think it established himself as the favourite target of garoppolo so i think i was good. He's very good. He's very good and he does everything. <hes> call shanahan wants them to do. I think he could have a more integral role. That's more valuable for fantasy. Goodwin fits into the d jackson john brown category of on again off again not going to be a high volume guy i believe in i do. I was going to say when it's all said and done this is relevant because pettus is going to be the clear number one. I love that you love that. He's you're my guy. All right music mccoll hardman thirteen thirteenth round peg mccall hartman. Are you interested in who could be the fifth target on an offense vince just because of the innovation of andy reid into rounds running opportunities big plays mccall hartman. Are you stashing trashing. I am not stashing. I think <hes>. I don't think i am either yeah. No i look similar to the deebo argument. It is very very rare for a rookie wide receiver to get off to a hot start on their n._f._l. Career week one week two. That's not say it doesn't happen. <hes> you know two thousand fourteen. You had a couple of guys do it. You got your anquan boldin xv old. It just come out and torched the world week one but because it's rare and he doesn't have a spot really locked in. I feel like it's gonna take injury or <music> a transaction to put him on the field enough to be a reliable starter for those reasons. I'm out shark tank. If miekel hartman goes off off week one it's because he caught two passes for seventy five yards and a touchdown this isn't he doesn't have that anquan boldin opportunity where he's an integral part of the offense. That's right away. Nicole was very interesting when it looked like tyreek hill was going to miss the n._f._l. Or miss a bunch of game so very interesting to see how they've used them in the preseason they will use touch passes screen passes opportunities to let those legs run free yes but it's it's just hard to stash a guy who's when you have hill zeus and the lizard king all on one team and you bring up damian williams yeah absolutely really i think that makes sense any dolphins wide receivers at all stash of trash. You look mocked mike early in the off season. I i hated the love that you gave for albert wilson. I didn't understand it. I didn't believe he'd be ready yada yada yada and now i find myself as we are a week away from from the n._f._l. Kickoff i'm like i kind of interested in albert wilson. He's the only one even though i believe in kenny stills as a as a medium level of mid mid level n._f._l. Wide really nice to see you downgrade. I'm officially <hes> but albert wilson he's healthy. I have no interest in any of them. They are trash trash trash. I'll what's helpful about that. Is the quarterback situation there that that will probably change in like two weeks it could but that's why i'm interested. That's been part of why i've been interested in albert wilson well. Let me put it another way. Will you chase him if he has a good week one on the waiver wire because i it depends on how ryan fitzpatrick looks okay so i've got a i've got a color in my opinion here because komo. I've changed a lot in albert wilson. I'm interested in him but he's definitely a trash because when i actually think about would i in my league. Go get him right now. Plays ravens week one no i i wouldn't so i don't want people to think oh. I'm saying he's definite stash. He's more of a keep an eye on wait and see if he's healthy <hes>. I'm not gonna the grabbing prior to break. We just talked about golden tate. I would much rather have albert wilson stashed on my bench than golden tape. Well sure i just think gold people are drafting golden. Tate style would rather have golden tatum bench than our wilson. That's where i would be. I think it will be a a pretty peppered target in that offense could start five yeah yeah but i mean some people play the game. You're gonna sign and drop four players before you pick up golden state anyway. If you're picking up al last year here's some examples of last year stash of trash josh docs john ross tae-won taylor doug martin danny amendola if i'm picking for those and just drop it in week after week. I feel like i know the commodity that is golden tate. I don't know the commodity of some of those other players some panned out last year. The big stashes breda james connor those guys that amazingly james connor was in stash last year that was to you think about the comeback we also have an update on golden tate's team <hes> we're talking about pope john paul the second high school wide receiver golden tate. Okay thank you brooks brooks. Let us know he starting next week. It's a homecoming game always update up to date info here. Man golden tate could go back and play on his high school taste dude. I would get stash him. I would be good. I love watching people just dominate just he's been held back six years but he's still a little that is part of your your personality and character jason. Is you have no you have no qualms about admitting competition is not something you're interested and you want pure and utter domination cheat codes. I love the idea of competition the expectation of competition and then the annihilation of enemies now now. Would you relate that entire kind of circumference of thought with your foosball play of late. There has been dominating. There has has been dominated you. Are you embracing that you can ask no. We'll flip soon. Here's here's the reality you can ask my. Why likely you can ask your own no. Did you bring it home. Oh my goodness. Did i bring it home. Last night. I was so man depressed. I'm sorry that's my fault look. I'm gonna put this. That's out there. I gotta i gotta own up to the truth. Mike you have been on fire. I am usually on defense. You're on offense. We're on separate. The the reality is metaphorically speaking. You laid me over your lap and you gave me a woman over and over and over and i felt so bad i went home depressed because i'm great at foosball not good i'm great and i was terrible and then i wore or michael's is really good like that's part of my compliment. I say he's great. So what does that make me right and you close out of picture. Look it up <music> but i gotta tell you last night walked in on me watching brian watching foosball videos slant last night at home because i was but here's what i learned here's what i learned i was watching a one of the best best matches of the last several years between two great players one of which is referred to as the michael jordan of foosball and he was jordan of flare is <hes> <hes> and the the opponent of him had a bird wicked. Yes he had a wicked pull shot and he smoked smoked michael jordan for eighty percent of his shots. I mean i felt so much better about my lack of being able to defend. You're like okay. I just need a better offense the one part of the one part of the analysis there is i thought you were trying to get better but you're also looking for justification forgetting. I was only looking to get better but i received is justification. Okay we're going to jump into the mailbag for a few questions help. You guys out mail bag. It seemed a little higher pitch than normal. Mike just a little bit of the pipes. The pipes have been a little destroyed over the week all right. We're getting better every time you score on jason. You scream really loud and happened a lot all right. If you have a question for the fantasy football players as you can send it on the website the fancy football dot com click the submit a question button. You can also dial the voice mail hotline three zero two four six four t. f. f. b. We got another voicemail question in there. Let's go to that. Hey ballers. This is david in tulsa oklahoma great show. <hes> had a quick question for you about waivers. Do you let waivers run off in the first one of the game. It runs on a <hes> a tuesday at midnight into wednesday then after that. Do you prefer verte. Let it be every day. There's another waiver or is it a wide open at draw after that until the next set of games yeah great great question and we have we have long since moved on from the wide open waiver world. Yes we respect the fact that other human beings have different jobs with different hours hours in different thoughts and different time that they can put into it and it's a much more even playing field to have the waivers run each and every day at the same time. Expectations -tations are set. We use a fab system but even even still having them run at one. Time is probably the best way to go. Yeah i mean even if i didn't respect your jobs and yeah and who knows maybe i do. Maybe i don't but and i love being able to dominate on people open. Waivers were professional fantasy analysts so we can make the move. The the second news breaks that being said continuous waivers. That's the that's usually what is referred to in the settings and having it run every day is so so much more fun every single day. You have a bidding war every single day. You have something to look and everybody had time to get in. It's a blast blast. The only complaint that i ever hear is what about sunday what about last minute waiver moves you. Just gotta prepare years. We've been playing with the system. I can't think of one moment where it would really ruined anything yeah. I think the only way that you can get into trouble is if you run into early in the day sure you need to find that balance. If if you run at six in the morning things happen for fantasy before the game start. Let's say you know we're west coast. So games started like ten in the morning. There's a big window there but we run them at like an hour or two before game time. It works out fine. I mean to me optimal would be the way we do it which is continuous every single day except for tuesday day correct but if if we could take sunday once they run and then have it be open until kick off and then everyone is is locked again. I think that'd be optimal all right chris in miami. Would you guys agree taking juju at the one four in a dynasty startup age aged potential positioned our ability thank you are you cool with juju at one of four. Yes heck yes while right jol in san diego. How do you regulate draft pick trading in a keeper league well. We really don't regulate it a whole lot. We let it happen. We have a strict trade deadline that we tr- we brought up our in our main keeper league a couple of weeks before the normal deadline because we want people to make decisions on the trajectory of their team earlier so that you don't don't get as much taking or selling out when you don't get that last second sell out or the last second by all the super players right going into the playoffs but what we don't let you trade more than a year in advance. That's one thing we don't like oh do so and we also there is a penalty so we don't regulate you. You don't have have to have your full allotment of picks heading into next year's draft your arm. You put yourself at the disadvantage that you don't have those picks but you also then pay credit lose ten dollars a fab at the end of the draft for every pick that you did not have accounted for so it it cuts both with ways for those players very interesting breaking news that i just received via email. I don't know how this happens but there is another andrew holloway out out there who seems to be from georgia who just ordered a couple of things from taco bell. Oh fence oh oh may be beefy fritos burrito and a case rita the combo that sounds buddy must i mean put in my email address somehow so i yelled at yours in yeah i think he missed type debt and so now. I know that there's another andrew you were holloway out there. That is very close email to yours as well but a don't email yeah and say about. I 'cause when i got the email. I thought maybe i was getting food which by the way has not sponsor but i thought i was receiving food. Someone ordered it for me. Maybe brooks was making it up to me after the golden tate situation but now it's just another the andrew all right time for a couple more questions kyle in chicago. How much does having to players on the same team. Limit your upside so on the same bad team carry on and kenny g. for example may need to trade one or both for higher ceiling players is his thought. Thank you for salvaging my fantasy career. Love bugai's kyle in chicago. It can work out if they are elite players for example asher odal beckham and saquon barkley players had both those teams they were perfectly fine until beckham was hurting and you can play them but in this particular instance i would not consider carry on or kenny g. to be elite fantasy the options and they're on the same team meaning they only one of can score per drive which definitely limits your upside on a week to week basis. Yes i would not love to have both of those guys on my team. Especially considering they're both early picks i if i end up with carry on and marvin marvin jones as a value pick later on i don't love it. I'm okay with it but i certainly would not be spending a three and a four or three to five on these two players. Yeah yeah i mean say quantum odell might legitimately be the number one running back out number one wide receiver talent in all of football. You did have teams like cincinnati you know a._j. Green when he was healthy joe mixon you could have gotten away with it but your ceiling count the ceilings cat but the consistency is usually up so it's just a matter i mean you can't score a touchdown if you've got a running back and wide receiver <hes> on the same play but if both of those players at the end of the season are going to finish well they're probably going to be taking turns on who has is the massive game kind of level your baseline out so if you've got superstars at other positions. I actually think it can be advantageous sometimes to have that stack. We also know that on losing teams. If you're a pass catching running back that does not reduce your output for fantasy football alright that is it for today's show. We wanna think pristine auction yesterday. Josh jacobs signed jersey raiders jersey seventy nine dollars and eighty five cents. I'm sure if you want to find a golden tate lions jersey you. You could probably do it at pristine auction. I'm not sure that high school jersey yeah. I don't blame you. Use the registration code. Ballers ballers use the registration code ballers. When you sign lineup pristine auction dot com it'll give you five dollars towards a future sports memorabilia purchase or anything that they have on their daily auctions.

The Kist & Solak Show #16: Eagles D vs Titans O, iTunes Review Readings

"Michael kissed Benjamin so lack. It's the Kistin Solex show presented by SP nation and leading green nation. You are flying high on the kissed, and so lack show. This is episode sixteen brought to you by the fine folks at Espy nation and bleeding green nation. I am your host, Michael kissed you can follow me on Twitter at Michael kissed NFL as always joined by the best dog on co host in the game Mr. eight year streak without a bad day. He is Benjamin so lack follow him on Twitter at Benjamin select that's l. egg Cape Ben. How're you doing brother every a good day. It'd be on a live. Mike. I do however, have to issue an apology to the good people of Twitter dot com. And those who follow me falling, I work as you know, I offer many jersey take very big into the aesthetics of both college NFL football. For example, I have the correct take running Kelly green, which is that it is a nice alternate, but it should not be considered a main color for two thousand and eighteen professional football team. However, I misled you and I see you and. For that. I will read a prepared statement from the desk of Benjamin Somac. These ties uniform suck. They are the worst. I thought that there was something redeeming about them. When I first saw them. I said, the powder, blue garbage, which they wore the pattern route ones against the dolphins and may were garbage that I said, oh, the dark blue ones and like you know, the gray, don't hate it. I think it will be okay. Turns out it is not. This was my prepared statement that I definitely wrote down the sincerely and in grave regret Benjamin Zola. I watched the weather the Jaguars game, and they had that powder blue and they have the white numbers and the sun is hitting them in the back. I can't read a dog on it's terrible. I can't read the numbers. They look bad, like everything about it is awful. I thought tentatively the shoulder saber like the sword detailing on the shoulders would look like kind of cool, and it looks all. Full. I too much belief in the ability of NFL teams do hire anybody who can look at anything and decide that it will actually look good, terrible. I am very cynical person, and I did not like them when they revealed them, and I would like to your right at myself on the on the back, that one worked out for me. So never trust anyone, Ben. That's your lesson for today. Wow. I start to the podcast. Welcome to nice. Happy sounds. Now we're going to tell you how we know everything there is to know about football, never. Trust anyone. Yeah. We're going to start by telling you everything we know about football by telling you about the injury report that dropped on Wednesday. We're recording Wednesday night. We'll keep you updated with these reports as they come as up to date as we can. But this is what we know as of the Wednesday reports will start with the eagles a what we're gonna do later on after we get through this injury report is obviously we're going to be previewing this game between the two in one AFC south leaders. Ac- titans and the two in one and of leading Philadelphia Eagles defending Super Bowl champions don't know if you know that, but we're going to be previewing, the Tennessee titans offense against the Philadelphia Eagles defense. And then tomorrow will do. It will flip it and it'll be the eagles offense against the titans defense. So for right now, we gotta get to the injury report for the eagles did not participate, Jay Ajayi dealing with us back there and sproles Rodney McLeod and Michael Bennett. Now, a giant was seen running in like a separate part of the facility or whatever. Doug says him in sproles are feeling well. It was an expected rest day for both of them that I don't read too much into today. Thursday as this drops will be more telling don't freak out over Michael Bennett. He had a sick day, some sort of illness. I don't expect that to impact the status for Sunday. Rodney McLeod is the big one. There's buzz that his knee injury could cause him to miss multiple games. Doug has said that. He's waiting for one more test, which I'll tell you Ben, that sounds kind of ominous forboding to meet despite MacLeod's saying that he's feeling fine. If McLeod goes down, that means more snaps for Corey, Graham, that's not fun and potentially snaps for de'andre hall. The safety that they traded. The bears for Hume had six special team snaps last week, or they'll supplant their three safety packages that they've really used a lot this year with more nickel and dime packages, which doesn't sound so bad to me if you're getting Sidney Jones and then received Douglas on the field a little bit more than MacLeod has been playing really well, man. And this is a big bummer. If he's out for some significant time and you want to know what the biggest bummer part of it is. It isn't even that there's less McLeod, Mike, it's that there's more Corey grunt, Corey Graham is probably the worst active defender on the routes for sure, right. Undrafted free gym broke, Bruce. Hector probably just causes less problems in general. Then Corey, Graham courtrooms isn't good. It's just a Corey. Graham is just may even the idea that he's a reliable veteran who knows where he's going. He gets misaligned than he misses assignments alive. I don't get it no McLeod. Pretty much forces you to play Jenkins in the box exclusively which then reads you have Corey Graham up at the top all the time, which is gonna mean that your corners are gonna play. Probably a little bit more off on lava, the buccaneers game, and you're in a really struggle to cover the intermediate levels of. That's what I would end disobey. You don't have the duplicity to the the, the variability to move around your your safeties into spin them into rotate them into switch their positions. You can run less unique style coverages. We've talked by the inverted cover to cover traps that we'd like to see from Philadelphia. You lose this? Yeah. 'cause mcleod's been really giving you some cool versatility that you did not expect that you didn't regularly see in coming from running McLeod in years past, and so maybe be a big bummer. Obviously, MacLeod has an impact player, but also. Safety death was a concern. Mike, when we were talking about the draft man like us, we're bringing in Ceron Neil and just in read, we thought they could potentially take that late day too early three safety to provide some better depth. They went with trae Sullivan camp solvent didn't show them enough as to stave off the signing of Corey Graham. And now you're looking at Sullivan potentially being active, and that's not a good situation for anybody. So men MacLeod has one. Yeah, and I will say I like the Andre hall. I like what what I've seen from his tape, a converted cornerback. He just has autho field issues that he has not been able to figure out, you know, coming to the eagles. You already had a one game suspension that he had to serve before we could put him on the active roster. I do want to see some of him to see if there's something there because I think the onfield talent is definitely there. So be interesting to see if we work him in a little bit more. Really hope McCloud doesn't miss significant time. You see him a lot man and he just flashes onto the screen and you get Corey Graham on there, and it's more like a slow pan. And you see him just kinda like. Out there in space. So I really don't wanna see more Corey Graham, I hope they play more nickel if that's the case, get Sidney Jones out there and home my God. Anyway, let's move over to the titans injury report. We have did not participate long when Ben did not participate kicker Ryan suck up. That's a good start. He's dealing with a left knee also bad for a kicker wide receiver. Rashard Matthews had some personal issues tackled Dennis. Kelly had an illness, it's called being bad football, Blaine. Gabbert is Cussing prototype. Running back Chirpin, prod, Kelly traded for door greenback. Let's get Marcus Johnson, revenge game last week tackle for laws. Dennis, Kelly, revenge game this week. Not even gonna play David flu. Ellen is dealing with a groin not flu, Ellen. The new limited participation calmly? Correa the linebacker they just traded for from the ravens. He's dealing with a back issue. Full participation back is Marcus mariota dealing with those funky nerves with the elbow injury that are reportedly making his to bottom fingers that he uses to grip the ball, go numb, which that ingrate. Hopefully he's got feeling back those Jack conklin dealing with the knee, but he's back fulltime. He hasn't played yet this season. He would be a definite upgrade safety, Kendrick Lewis practice full. They're kind of beat up and they've been taking it easy with Ricky edge rusher and terrorize or herald Landry with his ankle that he entered the season when he played twenty seven snaps against the Jags. We could see more of him on Sunday. Obviously, the headline this bunches, Mary Mario, I'm gonna. I'm gonna go back and forth between Marietta and Mario, even Mario messes that up himself. I know there are very vocal people about the pronunciation of his name which is supposed to be Mario ta, but whatever. Anyway, this guy has six. Point zero yards per tempt. He has touchdowns two hundred sections for a team that has an eclipse twenty points in all three weeks. How do we feel about this Ben entry wise? From what I understand Mario's is expected to make the start. Jack conklin is expected to make the start off for the first time which we'll take Dennis Kelly off the field regardless on Kelly is healthy and also Ryan suck up mave Raval was just making jokes about it in pressures today. It was like, oh, yeah, like seconds old. Like he's like someone on Santa's not as worried about, I will say Har ski had a release out today, a titans, famous teams, which that it seems Rashard Matthews is just, you know, he got injured. He was injured in camp. He, it was his position with the team is already tenuous. He was missing for personal reasons. It seems that Matthews is just like gone down. They don't expect Matthews who gave them thirty one thirty one week free. They expect Matthews to no longer be with the team. So you're looking at Taylor who has earned. More reps now he had no snaps in week one, and then he's had about thirty or so snaps in the past two weeks alone with Taj, sharp and coronation. As your throughout receivers. Looks like Nova Rashard Matthews on moving forward. Yeah, in Taiwan. Taylor has definitely earned some of those rep, so it's really not a big loss for them, but any hit to this offense is is hidden. As we transition into this previewing, the titans offense against the eagles defense Ben, this offense makes me a little angry. Yes. So let's talk about this because you are pissed off at a Matt leflore offense. That to me is pretty Kyle. Shanahan he, I don't understand why what you don't like it's not really the construction of the offense from schematic standpoint, other than maybe an over reliance on on the power run in putting themselves in tough boxes in the running game, watching this offense takes a lot of patience for me because I've drafted in Email to edge analyst. Six as I collect these things, but the cowardice that they've shown on fourth down in enemy territory since they're QB situation has become unstable has been unbearable regardless of the circumstance and speaking of unbearable sixty six percent runs on first and ten sixty six percent and they aren't having success with it. They lead the league in run percentage. Why is that? So you say, okay, well, Blaine, gabbert and whatnot. That's fine. The run isn't working the past, even with Gabbard and mariota with one hand is still going to put you in a better situation to win, and yet might have to be like the short stuff but but good spread it out. Get Dion Lewis more evolved in the passing game on first down which they haven't done. That's my main issue. This, at least this scheme of it, get him one on one with a linebacker throat seven yards down the field, see how life treats after that. Because if they tried to do that and actually done it a couple of times and it's worked, and this is what will work for them going for. Forward and not slamming poor poor, Derrick, Henry into eight and nine man boxes. The NFL doesn't work that way anymore. Just the stubbornness and cowardice is unbelievable, and people are making excuses for for Mario and the play calling in the Jaguars game. Mario was fine in that first half, yeah, he can't push the ball vertically there. There's a lot of quarterbacks in the league that can't do that either and offenses find a way to work around. They don't go to sixty six percent run. He had three drives out of four. Were his receivers, dropped well-placed balls in the first half, and then the two minute warning they suddenly decide they're gonna slow things down and settle for field that they missed, which quite frankly, they deserve to miss and yeah, cool escape with w, but how much game winning chance are they leaking on these decisions? How much are they just giving away when in the third quarter up three, fourth, and one on the Jaguars forty five, you line up and you take the lay of game on a fourth in one you don't have to pass their. That's not about mariota go through. Pick aside run Henry up the gut and let him lean forward for three yards that has nothing to do with Mary iota, and he's still run through it which by the way, if they were so concerned with Mario too so much so that they dressed him and put him in when Gabor got murdered and then ran read option with him. And yeah, that's the best part of this offense right now. Mario running. That's the biggest threat. And I wish I could express the frustration which I have this often, it's it's not about being aggressive downfield which they can't be right now. I give a full pass for that. It's cowardly decisions in key moments that Luger the game. And just because the Jaguars had one of their predictable stinkers and the defense played well for the titans does not excuse just pure cowardice in regard to decision-making on offense as a Philadelphia Eagles fan that appreciate coaches with big balls Rabl in it for me right now. And he should shoot his game script that was supposed to change. So drastically with Matt leflore coming in and him coming and shoot it into the sun sixty six. Cent of the time on first down is this nineteen eighty is Ronald Reagan president. These things are not working in the NFL anymore. The analytics tell them such and they have the analytics company and building. They hired analytics to tell them this was stupid and continue to be stupid. So until they prove otherwise offense is just going to continue to piss me off Ben, right? This is I love this because this is the kind of different styles stuff that we bring to gas, Macy. Good has your, they're going man. Why? Running on I in Tennessee supersonic time game winning chances that I'm over here going. I see when they're working that outside zone I in. He's just trying to set up a little levels follow out the naked boot on the backside, like it's all manly. He's working all these reduced splits faking crack back blocks. He can get those releases into the flashing gives you those tomorrow. What? How running your bootleg on second nine because that's what you're getting, right? I wrapped up in the design of your on. I mean, the which is fair. The Zo Matt leflore is not the the offense. Omlund do that. Week medicine is the office coordinator of the Tennessee titans. Now you may remember, Matt, if is name because he received a lot of buzz in the off season because he was shot McVeigh's offense coordinator in Los Angeles. This past twenty seventeen season how McVay know him. Well, I'll tell you the was the quarterbacks coach in Washington, do ten to two thousand thirteen, which of the exact same years. The couch Shanahan was the offense coordinator there. Right? Shanahan went to Cleveland for one year and ended up in Notre Dame. And then when Shane had went back to the falcons. You held it so much of it so much. I was dying. Okay. When when Shanahan went back to become the. This is the first time that you've done this. I've done this summer. Usually you're breaking Shanahan, went back to the office according to the falcons and fifteen to sixteen the flow. Was there with him as well again as the quarterbacks coach and so- McVay knows him through the Shanahan tree. The flow went to be with McVeigh twenty seventeen with Rams. And then from there, breakable hired him really read redesigning this offense from the exotic smashmouth is so quoted from like munch AC. May he never coach again in the NFL. So what you're going to see from the flood from that offense, the titans put out. It's very similar to the Shanahan McVay ideas that eagle Saugus Redskins for the longest time. One of the eagles main struggles against the buccaneers Todd Mahnken offense. Mike was working reduced splits, and that's something you see at, I would say, even a higher click, then the Rams under McVeigh and. The the Niners under Shanahan one hundred percent? Yeah. What you're seeing from reduced splits, the wide receivers instead of being aligned outside of the numbers further outside we call those plus splits, reduce splits are lining up your outermost receivers. Like in the slot, she got a ton of bunch formations will be called nasty formations, which is two receivers, both. Like right next to the tapa a lotta stacks right one receiver right behind the other line scrimmage, and you can run classic concepts. You saw Yankee, you saw you saw levels all a very quickly. Very early. These downfield ideas working intermediate crossers, but defenses are built to handle those out of more traditional style of wide receiver. Alignment outta these reduced alignments the releases look different. There's more congestion. There's different. Reeds ended, especially gives trouble might cover three what the eagles liked to run. And so I really liked the way this offense is designed to make easy, simple choices that cause big problems for defenses like that's the smart aspect of it, right? It's not like we're doing crazy things to. 'cause. Between family easy things, just reduce. Let's not hard, but in doing so because problems for defense because they have to change the way they read pre snap and at snap way the receivers come off off the field off the line. So I think this this offense is very well Bill. It's very well designed now whether or not they have the personnel to execute some of these things. I'm sure we'll get into it. I know you wanna talk about the running game, so I'll let you get that rolling. So I think that's where we talked personnel little bit, but this offense is passing attack is designed. I think to affect the eagles cover three quite well. And I liked, I liked the past. They've got in Davis. Taiwan was coming on nicely. Jake sharp, good, intermediate guy. But boy, John Smith get himself from reps Delaney walkers on I are. I like that a lot. I, this is a good offense to really test the eagles secondary. We'll see how that goes for them before we get to the running game. When a bring back up mariota's legs, how he can threaten works, talked about it in his press conference at talked about how you know he he sprints into his. His actions, his Wagle's and everything like that. So they use a decent amount of play action. I wish they use a little bit more actually, but we'll see. We'll see if they do because they can get his legs of all that. That's an issue for the eagles. Because as we talked about on the last show of the eagles have some problems with not freelancing their rush and they can get opened up a little bit by that type thing. Yeah. And you also have to yet the respect the read option, which I trust the eagles defensive ends to stay disciplined with that more so than I would trust if Vinny curry was out there because he was usually the one busting on those types of things like we talked about on the last show when they've been on block Brandon, Graham and Derek Barton Chris long as a savvy veteran, they've been very, very good in Jacksonville, didn't spy Mario, and it bit them at times. And I'm not saying spy, but is the backfield zone. Defense run blitz his at the quarterback in running situations and mess with his option reads, if that's what they want to try to do to bring numbers on the passing downs. You watch that Jaguars game, and you see the first time plays with Gabbard in their three sacks in nine place. And the first two blitz got home when they got me Jackson on right guard, Josh Kline, why think the eagles as the boy? Yeah, really, really work over clydes. Campbell came free on a stunt and Gabbard simply panicked on in the pocket. So he had an opportunity Gabbard date on that play where he got killed to step up. He just crapped his pants and it literally led to his murder, Jackson rock them knocked them out of the game. He fumbles obviously, there's a flag for him with the helmet because there is on every second the NFL next, you know, mariota's and the game after that one sack, but the offense of line to me as little pressure as they given up to this point. You look at that interior and what the eagles do and with the eagles are good at and they're very suspect. And right now mariota can't spin it like normal. If that doesn't improve where he can't hit those deep outs, those corner rows that he throws really well and really pretty the deep curls. If those aren't a threat, you're more worried about down the seams. And even then until he shows he can threaten. This defense in deep portions of the field. I'm not concerned about it. If I'm Jim Schwartz lesson, you brought up our Josh climb, the eagles right guards they have faced. We won Vedra good in in Atlanta. We're finding week to Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Venezuela, bad, knock great week, three Indianapolis, Colts. Matt's Lawson not great ad week for Josh Klein, Tennessee titans might be the best of the three point. Not. Here's the betray is better. But yeah, I get your point the best of the most recent three betrays. Definitely. I was talking about the most recent three. I got. The interiors Tampa. The one on the left, Jack Hong Kong writes a good tackle. Do you got your problems with one conklin? But when it comes to the NFL you can't turn your nose up at that tackle. Do a good tackle do now. They're interior Quinton, Spain on the left van Jones in the middle, Josh Klein on the right that interior might that interior is built for exotic spat match. Smashmouth. It is built to run people over. Spain is a powerful. Do clients. Strength is his power then Jones with people mover for sure. When they try to run outside zone, which is a staple right? If you're running the Shanahan system, you need it. Talk to Derrick Henry, trying to raise whatever interior linemen got through the center of the line, right? He's got, he's deathly and you can. You can pull off outside zone that way like that's done before you on. I mean, like they'll they'll run crack toss, right? And the whole idea behind crack tosses like, listen, we're gonna get the ball to the outside so quickly that don't even worry about blocking the interior guys. They don't really matter. They can't make this play. Like we love how good Futch Cox's. He's not really making that play. If he was putting like Brandon Graham, Michael Bennett on the inside. Those guys can move right out of their much lighter, but also outside don't you can pull it off where if you bought the frontside real well backside pursuit from the interior defense, alignment doesn't matter as much. Right. That's easier when you're running out of shotgun, which is not what you see is much more so see out of under center which is going to bring the, it's gonna delay the hand off a little bit. It's going to bring that running back a little bit closer to the line to make it easier frontier. If it's a lime and again in there, but you can pull that off. They're going to need to because Spain and Klein, particularly, I like Ben Jones a little bit Spain, inclined particularly lack the agility to get on their horse and regularly win, reach blocks on outside. They weren't off. It's Bill for this, right? And it's the first year, the system, and it's a completely different systems. That's the reality. Okay. We've talked very positively unless podcast on Wednesday of eagles backside pursuit from their defensive end who are on blocked now. Tennessee, typically what you would call an outside zone. You come on outside zone, open or closed, right. Open outside zone is the backside tackle in the guard. They're gonna climb up into the second level depending on the defensive alignment, and they're gonna leave that end on blocked any ideas. Just going to beat him at race are running, backs in and get to the spot for he does. Tennessee doesn't typically run their outside zone with open blocked on the backside that typically running closed, which means that backs tackle cut blocking that back defender, right? So the eagles aren't going to get as much Brandon, Graham Derek Burnett backside, pursues. They're used to on these concepts, Tennessee closes the backside with Cup, lock those interior defense. Alignment are gonna have to run sign the sideline Cox. And then when NADA unveil are in there, which is not a strength, not unveil of this defense, they need to be able to pursue silent silent and make plays from behind because otherwise Tennessee is gonna be able to get plus one on the front side in terms of blocking numbers, and they're going to be able to generate some running lanes. So interior defensive line Cox of AO and NADA. Being able to beat left guard, Quinton, Spain, and right guard, Josh Klein on outside zone is a huge storyline. Stepping of Tennessee can astound the run. Like we, we know a salvage. The run isn't nearly as valuable. Blink said they run sixty six percent of the time on first down. If they're picking up healthy yardage, we got us a problem and luckily they haven't been able to do that so far. Then it's led to long third down situations, twenty second in the league on Kurdi. Converting those third downs, bend my notes on this offensive line is really simple. Basically what you touched on the tackles are fine. Ben Jones is terrible athlete, but decent Quin Spain is a bad athlete, and Josh Klein is an average athlete, but he's not very good. So you try to run those things, manages it looked so ugly coordinated and Derrick Henry is not built for zone for outside zone. He's he's just not. He's two hundred and forty plus pounds. Do you? Don't tell me. So are you a Derek truth or yes or no? I don't know what that is in. Here's my thing with Derrick, Henry thing. Okay. Then just give me your take on them. The the thing about, I feel like countering any narrative with with more bad narratives. I greeted him in the off season. I did a full evaluation of five games that great at his game, and he came out to be a believe. It was a four point one. Seven, which in my scale i
